When I said and it will not cease meaning it will continue the word desilu is from the root letter is a well learned from the words away
and the while is down for what is it down for.
So, let us know it will never cease meaning it will always be, this will always be this will never set this will never have a downfall, this will always continue what that the earlier you will be acquainted with the familiar from the root letters for lamb I thriller, what does it mean to be informed have to be acquainted with something do come to know of something.
So, let us a little earlier meaning you will always come to know you will always find out about you will always find out about what have either the main home betrayal from them, from who, from the Ministry, why? Because they broke their promise with Allah and they abandoned what they were supposed to do. So, when a person does not have higher of a low when a person does not have shyness, fear of Allah, then he doesn't care about other people.
As a result, you will always find out about some kind of treachery from these people. Always, in different times, different situations, different places, you will always find out about treachery from these people.
Now the word heart entertain is from the root letters call well known the word the N letter Who knew?
What is the enemy treachery? And it is said that Karna who say fu
harbor who's April, meaning his sword betrayed him? What does he mean by that? His sword betrayed him. What does he mean by that?
It didn't fulfill its purpose.
You know, for example, when you prepare something, when you make something, or when you take something with you, for instance, you take your computer with you to a class that you're going to take your notes on your computer on your laptop.
Now, you took the charger and everything and you go there and you open up your computer and it doesn't work.
You take your phone somewhere, hoping that you will be able to use it. But what happens just doesn't turn on. It doesn't work over there.
So what you expected from the computer, what you expected from the phone, that didn't happen.
That didn't happen. You expected some benefits, some kind of work. That's why you took it. That's why I used it. But when it didn't fulfill its purpose. It's like as though it betrayed you. And this is what he learned is
that you expect that when you tell somebody about something, they will keep it to themselves. But what do they do? They tell somebody else about it.
Similarly, when you have a business transaction with someone, you expect that what they're giving you is an object that is not spoiled. You expect that from them, you're giving them the money and you expect sincerity and truthfulness and honesty from them. But if the seller a product that is expired, or that doesn't work properly, what is that? piano? So what is Leanna?
What is the honor
to go against the expectations of the other? It doesn't mean that the other person should have high expectations of you unrealistic expectations? No. This is like, understood normal, what you said you were going to do that was what was expected of you.
So piano is that a person does not do what is expected of him that a person does not do what he said he was going to do.
Like for example, the teacher says to the student that you're expected to do this, this homework, and the student doesn't do it. What is that? piano? It is the expectation from the student that he must do that. If he doesn't do it, that is betrayal.
So basically, piano is to be unpredictable, to be unreliable, do not fulfill one's responsibility.
This is what pianos do not fulfill one's responsibility.
So over here, Allah says that you will always find out about her in at a minimum and work hard enough.
Inner is fairy
meaning one who does the one who does hear
the word hyena has been understood in several ways in this context. First one it has been that the hyena is actually a master. What does that mean my master it's a main word. So it gives a sense of een.
It gives the center piano
that you will always find out about their treasuries
that one day they're returning
You, and other day they're betraying somebody else. They say they're going to do something, but they don't do it.
They say they want to something, but they do it.
When it is in money matters or political affairs are different different situations, this is what you always find out about that they say they're going to do something, they don't do what they say they're not going to do something they do it. This is what treachery.
Secondly, it is at the heart, nothing refers to nothing hard anything,
nothing hard anything.
And you see the heart in it, it ends with a timer Buddha.
And the Buddha is generally a sign of what feminine. But what are some of the exceptions?
What is the exception? Does it always indicate feminine? No. When does it indicate something else? Or what else does it indicate?
What else does it indicate?
When you want to show mobile, when you wish to show mobile level of the trade that has been mentioned. So for example, I learned
it entered the family booth that doesn't mean that every great scholar is a woman, not necessarily. So that the end indicates that this person is very knowledgeable, very scholarly, the similarly hot in the time of Buddha 10, what does it show that an extremely treacherous person from
that in every generation, in every year, every people, every group, among them, you will find at least one person who is extremely treacherous. Who has reached the heights of treachery, who has reached the heights of treachery of betrayal, extremely treacherous person.
Thirdly, it has been said that heart in it and refers to, but if I didn't have, that, you will always find among them a group that is hot in look at the beauty, that every person is not treacherous. It's only a certain group among them, who is extremely treacherous, who break their promises and their commitments that they have made with people, as well as the ones that they have made with.
So, you will always be acquainted, you will always come to know of some type of deceit from these people illa cadila minim except for just a few of them. And these few, they will not be treacherous for foreign home. So just forgive them. Pardon
somebody being treacherous towards you, and unless us forgive them. Why? Because Can you change that person? Can you do anything? No. So just pardon them so that you can be at peace in your heart. Because when you will pardon them, you will be at peace in your heart and if you don't pardon them, then what's going to happen? You can make a change and in your heart You're going to be full of anger for such people. So what's the best solution? Just forgive them and our phone is telco Mahara. Our phone is Duncan.
It is to not call to account do not take revenge from the one who has wronged you. From the one who has done something wrong. Do not take any revenge, do not even call to account or not even ask them what they did or why they did it.
Like for example, if somebody does something wrong, and you say that, okay, fine. It's okay. Let's say somebody scratched your computer. Okay, fine. Not a big deal. But you asked them, What happened? How'd you do it? Why weren't you careful? This is what
you are calling them to account you are questioning them. But what is our phone that you forgive them in such a way that you don't even ask them about what they've done.
You don't even hold them responsible for what they've done. You forgive them in such a way so far for on whom pardon them was fine and also overlook
is fine is from the root letter thought that what we have done before far fools for who and it's fine, soft is it at all? It is to turn away from the one who has done something wrong. So it is a step ahead of
ours is to not call someone to account. But you know, sometimes you're upset with someone and you show them that you're upset. You're not asked them why you did it. You will not punish them. But at the same time, you will show that you're upset. What is self that you just turn away from them, meaning you just ignore what they have done completely. Don't even show that you're upset.
So far for and who was for.
Meaning forget about what they do. Whatever they do, Don't take it to heart. Don't worry too much. Don't think about it because the more you think about it, the more upset you will be.
You cannot make them under
And you cannot change them to just ignore them.
In the law, your humble mercy Nene Indeed Allah loves those people who do.
So what do we learn from this ayah?
First of all, we learned from the side that a loss penalty is just as he does not punish without reason. Where do we learn that from? That Allah is just and he does not punish without reason, Furby man aka him, miss out the homeland man who it is because of their breaking of the covenant that we curse them, it was out of no reason that our lockers that know a lot is just and he does not punish for no reason.
We also learn from this guy that breaking the mishap of Allah, which means that the responsibilities that a person has been given the commands that a person has been given, he does not execute them, he does not follow them, he does not observe them.
So when a person does that, what is he inviting? the learner of Allah, the punishment of Allah, in this sort of the main theme, is what? That the commands that you have been given, follow them, observe them, don't take them lightly. And yet we think that it's okay we can pick and choose the commands that we like, we can take whatever we like, we can leave whatever we like, No, we cannot do that. Because if this is our behavior, with the book of Allah, with the commands that He has given us, then what are we inviting upon ourselves, the curse of Allah, but that we are making ourselves distant from Allah subhanaw taala as mercy. Unfortunately, this is our behavior with the Quran,
that, you know, whatever we like we do whatever we don't like we don't do. This is not acceptable behavior. This is not acceptable.
When Allah has given us these commands, it's not just that we understand them, we just learn about them when we write about them. And that's it finished. Know, when Allah has given us these commands. Out of respect for these commands, we should accept them, we should follow them, we should implement them and not pick and choose whatever we like, and leave whatever we like. We cannot do that. Because if we do that, we're inviting a lot of penalties. Anger,
we have to become serious. Really, we have to become serious about the deen that Allah has given us. We have to take this Deen seriously.
The commands that Allah has given to us we have to take them seriously. Whatever Allah has forbidden us from we have to be serious about it. We cannot play with the deen. Because if we do, then we're inviting the punishment of Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala presents this example of the Bani Israel before us. Not so that we just looked down upon them. No. So that we take a lesson from this, that if this is how you're going to treat the commands of Allah, then expect this. When a person fulfills the covenant of Allah, then he gets the mercy of Allah. And when he does not fulfill that, when he goes against the commands of Allah, then what is he inviting the learner of Allah.
We also learn from this ayah that any person, any person, no matter who he thinks he is, if he disobeys his Lord, deliberately. No one does that a person forgets. And as a result of forgetfulness, he commits an act of disobedience. That is different.
But this is that a person knows what the command is, but he chooses not to do it.
He knows what the prohibition is, but he chooses to do it.
So any person who does that, what happens to him, his heart becomes hard.
His heart becomes hard.
wodeyar I now kulu boom casia.
And what is the hardness of the heart?
that a person then finds out about the commands of Allah, but he's not affected by them.
He reads, the most hardest Ayat of the Quran, even the most forceful, the most effective, even, but they don't affect him that
Why? Because he learned over command and he ignored it.
He learned over prohibition and he ignored it. He deliberately went against the commands of Allah. And so he became desensitized.
His heart does not take any effect anymore. His heart becomes hard.
On the other hand, we learned that if a person when he obeys his Lord, what happens? His heart becomes soft.
The more obedient a person is, the softer his heart becomes, the more receptive his heart becomes.
So what's the cure of the hardness of the heart?
What's the cure? obedience to a loss of power?
We think that if we disobey Allah deliberately once or twice, like, for example, we learn about certain commands. We think that if we disobey a loss of 100, it's okay. No big deal. No big deal. Just once. I won't do it again. But what happens? There are consequences. And one of those consequences that a person's heart becomes hard. He does it once and the next time it's not difficult for him to do it. And the next time it's not difficult for him to do it. He leaves one thing today, he will leave to tomorrow, he will leave three more the next week. And this will continue
until he becomes very far from the mercy of Allah soprano.
This is the consequence of abandoning the commands of Allah.
So the more a person obeys Allah, the softer his heart becomes and the more a person disobeys Allah, the harder his heart becomes.
We also learn from this ayah that disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala is a cause of poor little fan,
meaning lack of understanding. When a person disobeys Allah, it leads to a lack of understanding of the words of Allah maaseiah is a cause of collateral form of the word of Allah soprano.
Where do we learn that from? You have the phone and calling.
Because you see when a person distorts the words, it's either because of lack of understanding or it is because of arrogance, or the one is stigma. So there are two causes behind changing altering the words of Allah.
What are they first of all,
lack of understanding and secondly, arrogance.
So over here, a lot of parents Allah says that because they broke their covenant with Allah as a result what happened? They altered the words of Allah.
Now, either they altered them because of arrogance, or they altered them because of lack of understanding.
So what does this show?
That when a person disobeys Allah? Where is he going towards lack of understanding or arrogance towards the commands, that he learns what the command is, but he cannot relate it to his personal life?
Isn't a talk that sometimes we read the I add one after the other, but we cannot relate them to our personal lives at all.
We understand them. But still we do not implement them. What's the reason?
It's because we're disobeying Allah subhanaw taala somewhere or the other? That's the reason. What's the reason that we learn about something, but still it does not show in our actions.
It does not show in our actions, what's the problem? It's mostly either we don't get it, or we know it, but still, we don't want to accept it. What's the reason behind that Masia
and on the other hand, if a person obeys Allah subhanaw taala, it leads him to further understanding the book of Allah sapan without having a deep understanding of the commands of Allah and accepting the commands of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says, well, Medina, detto, Zed home Buddha,
those people who accept guidance, then what happens? Allah subhanaw taala increases them in guidance and he gives them their support. Who, those people who accept guidance, when they obey Allah, then Allah will increase them in their guidance. And on the other hand, if a person disobeys, then he's not going to increase in his guidance, he's going to decrease in his understanding in his implementation.
We also learn from this ayah, that hardness of the heart, it leads to piano it leads to treachery. And this treachery, a person is deceitful. he betrays people, his relatives, his friends, his co workers, he betrays them, he's not reliable at all.
We also learn from this I bought the encouragement to forgive those people who harm you, who betray you, who deceive you. Why? Because Allah loves those people who do.
You see, sometimes you come across people or you come across such things that you cannot change them. You cannot change them, you cannot do anything to change them. Like for example, you got a phone and it's just not working properly. Now one is that you become frustrated all the time. When you start seeing, you know, harsh words or bad words or you start getting mad at your brother or your husband who got you that phone every time you see them. You complain about your phone, and every time because you're like, I hate this one. I hate this one. Now what is this negativity
Wherever person has this attitude of doesn't matter, forget about it, at least I can make a phone call, okay, I have to keep this phone for like the next month or two, fine. At least spend that time in peace. Stop complaining. Because if you complain, you're being negative, and that negativity is going to affect you. It's in gratitude, it's also going to affect other people around you.
Every time your brother your husband's gonna see us with it, oh my god, she's gonna say something about her phone, and I cannot fix it.
So, stop this negativity, when you cannot change something. When you cannot change something, when you cannot fix something, when you cannot alter something, then just accept it as it is.
And the best way of dealing with it is just ignore it.
Just ignore it.
Don't think too much about it. Don't worry too much about it. Spend your time worrying about something else, worrying about other more important things
that my phone cannot keep my context for about my brain? Can my brain keep the words of Allah subhanaw taala? Will we complain about a phone? not working properly? What about our brain? Is it working properly? A lot of brother has given me a brain What am I doing with it. So focus on things that are more important and forget about those people. Forget about those things that you cannot change.
We also learned from this is that if someone is not just being generous, or being kind or just smiling in other people, but your son is also forgiving others not calling into account that is also
typically we think that our son is sort of being generous, being polite, doing what we're supposed to do properly but if sign is also forgiving the other person where do we learn that from?
In a lie your hibel mercy.
We also learn from this ayah about the beauty of our Deen where our Deen teaches us about forgiveness towards who forgive Who? The enemy.
Imagine the enemy who was betraying you what is Allah Subhana Allah saying forgiven?
Basically, some people believe that all of the ayah in the Quran that tells us that forgive and ignore the disbelievers wherever they are whether the people of Makkah or they're the people of the work or they're the hypocrites, all of these, if they are abrogated.
They're not applicable anymore. Why? Because now the command is that you have to fight them. However, this opinion as you can see is, it can be negated by this ayah that Allah Subhana Allah tells us that forgive them. This cannot be one so why this cannot be abrogated. Why
this is the last hoorah every single I have the solar is mahakam it is not meant to save a lot of parents are listening, forgive your enemy. Just ignore them. Just ignore your enemy whenever you hear from them whenever you find treachery from them, don't even bother to hold them accountable because you only be wasting your time.
So what is the short was the beauty of our within? Our Deen teaches us to forgive the enemy.
Let's listen to the recitation.
all in in
