Some then lambda can fit in at home, there will be no excuse upon examination Illa and calu except that they will say, well law here have been American and Michigan, by Allah Our Lord, we were not those who are associated, we never did check.
Some meaning one day will be questioned that Where are your partners, then lambda one fitness.
Fitness is from their own fetters fat and
and as you know fitness is a trial, a test.
And over here, fitness gives a sense of an argument and excuse.
Meaning the only excuse the only argument that they will have to present in the face of affliction will be that they will say that we never did check.
The only excuse that they will be able to present is that they will say we never did cheat.
Now, why is excuse or argument being called fit? And over here?
If you look at it,
a question that a person is asked isn't it a test in itself? Isn't it a fitna in itself?
Any question that you're asked, any test that you're going to it's a fitna and answering it is a test. It's a test.
So at that time, they will have no answer. So they will come up with this excuse. They will come up with this answer that and pilu will not Europeana Merkel no mistaking that by Allah Our Lord, we never did [???].
So in other words, they will take the support of lies now.
What do we learn from this is that a person who lies in this dunya he will also lie on that day.
They did check. And check is all what? It's false. It's all lies, exam. It has no reality to it.
And a person who develops the habit of lying, that even on that day is going to lie.
When a person habitually does something, then he gets so used to it, that it becomes a second nature. And he doesn't even realize he's doing those things. He's saying those things without even using his mind. I mean, without using his consciousness, he's just doing it is just saying, he doesn't realize
like, for example, when you sit in the car, it's your nature. second nature, you're going to put the seatbelt on you don't think, Oh, I have to put the seatbelt on for some people. Yes, they have to think. But for other people, it's second nature.
Similarly, when a person develops a habit of lying, then he doesn't even realize and begins to lie before Allah who knows the reality Yahoo says Rocco, Morocco, romantic Cebu, and a person can dare to lie in front of him.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this is that a person who does wrong eventually becomes accustomed to it,
eventually becomes accustomed to it. So this is not just with lying, but it is with any other action.
And it becomes a second nature.
We also learn from this idea that people on the Day of Judgment, they will lie even to save themselves from punishment, to save themselves from hellfire.
But obviously, that lying is not going to work. Because Allah subhanaw taala knows about the reality.
Also, look, can you forget about Allah and forcing him how they lie against themselves?
Now, if you consider this hasn't really happened, isn't it?
It will happen on the Day of Judgment Allah says on the look and who is this addressed to the prophets are a lot of similar afternoon the Sameer the listener meaning anyone who was listening to these if that look, why is it being said in this way?
This is a style in the Arabic language.
That although something has not actually happened, it is going to happen in the future. But it is so definite, and the way that alasa peloton is mentioning it, it is as though you can see it before your eyes. Also, look, look at this. Okay for Canada and for seeing how they're lying against themselves. Look at the false excuses that they're coming up with. Look at how they're denying having done [???].
And notice Allah says Allah unforseen against themselves, because whenever a person lies, he is lying against himself. He's not benefiting himself from the lie. He's actually lying against himself.
It's always a herder lie. It's always an argument against him. Can you forget about Allah and forcing him
with Allah on him and it
was lost from them, McCann we have thrown that which they used to fabricate,
we learned that the length of the day of judgment will be equal to 50,000 years 50,000 years
and the questioning will also take place the hisar will also take this, it will take place at an individual level as well as at a collective level. Like over here we learn under the international code, all of them are being questioned together, that where you should look at
and also people will be questioned individually. So, they will basically be several occasion several instances where people will be asked about their actions.
So, for example, at one point, they will say that we never did check. at another point, they will say, those whom we worship, we don't find them today.
So, basically, in that long period of time, they will change their statements, they will change their statements.
Just like a person who's just trying to get out of a situation. And if he's in a big problem, he will try using one justification one excuse if that doesn't work, you will present another excuse. If that doesn't work, you will present another excuse. So over here we learned that they will lie that they will say that will lie here have been America Michigan whenever the chip
however, elsewhere in the hole and we learn that they will say but Luanda they're lost from us we don't find them.
So, this is not a contradiction rather What is it? It shows that in different situations they will present different excuses why just out of the punishment
went into the office I 73 and 74 as I mentioned to you earlier, so I'm lucky that a home NMR quantum to silicone window nilla corner balloon, Allah
they will say their last from us we have no idea where they are.
But lambda Canada rumen kabu, Cheyenne karateka you will along with caffeine.
And then they will say that rather we did not use to invoke previously anything meaning we did not worship anyone before we only worship Allah. So they will also lie. Although learn who McCann we have true meaning all that they used to fabricate. Everything is last
Yesterday I was talking to someone and
they were saying about the Hadith in which we learned that the feet of the son of Adam will not move until he answers several questions that he will be asked and one of them is that where did you spend your life? meaning how did you spend your life? What did you do?
And you were saying that I was reflecting on this Hadees? And on this question, I mean, I will be asked and what will I say
that where did I spend my life?
And that got me thinking that okay, life that's a long period of time but if you think of it this last week,
or this past month,
or this past year,
or the past five years, really, what is it that we have done that we can say? I did this?
I have this to show
because when you read these either like okay, this is about mistaking another mistake. So hamdullah I'm fine.
must remember that on the Day of Judgment,
people will be questioned.
And people includes me.
I will be asked about how I have spent my life when I lie over there and come up with false excuses and change my statements
that I was too busy and I had that I had this to do. And yes, I learned the Quran I read the Quran at least. And I didn't really do, Armen, I wasted some time as well.
Is that what we're going to say? Are we going to keep changing our statements and coming up with false excuses?
So yes, this is about the machine what from this, we should also reflect that, under their judgment, we will also be questioned
for where we have spent our lives what we have been doing, and what is it that we will have on that day to show to a loss of handler
that Oh, Allah, you gave me one week that was free.
I had no responsibilities whatsoever. I was home all day.
And this is what I did. This is what I have to show you.
I lived the life of 25 years, 30 years, 35 years. This is how long I lived. This is all that you gave me.
And I have nothing to show you today.
nothing remarkable. Nothing good to show you today.
So we all need to check ourselves. How is it that we will answer these questions on the Day of Judgment,
we will be questioned as well. And we should be ready as well.
Woman home and among them. My yestermorrow alayka are those who listen to you. Meaning there are those people among the machine who listen to you or prophets are allowed or Salam when you recite the Quran
in Corona, meaning when you recite the Quran, they listen very attentively to your recitation. And yestermorrow is from St. Mark. And St. Mary is to listen attentively to something.
It's not just summer, summer is to hear. But yes, the mirror is to listen attentively, carefully with attention.
So they listen very attentively to recitation because they're interested in.
But it is as though they're not listening at all. Why? Because nothing goes in their hearts.
It goes in their ears. They enjoy the sound, they enjoy the recitation. They appreciate the words, but it doesn't enter their hearts. Why? Because when you're under either kulu became a keener than any of us who
and we have placed over their hearts coverings lest they understand it.
A cleaner is a Florida canal. And canal is from the router scaff new noon. And Kenan is that with with something is covered. So basically it is a cover a covering.
So we have placed veils and coverings over their hearts.
And you have less they understand it meaning so that they don't understand the Quran that they're listening to.
That despite the fact that they listen to it, they still don't get it.
They still don't understand it.
They're listening to the Quran, but they're unable to comprehend the Quran. Why? Why is this so?
Because a lot of parents are that says what do I learn I now could have been we have placed over their hearts. Why does a lot this is over their hearts
because of their own prejudice because of their own stubbornness and bias.
That when they would listen to the Quran, they would not listen with the intention to attain guidance, with intention to learn about something through which they could come closer to a loss of data through which they could do something to please Allah subhanaw taala
that they could improve themselves, but rather they would listen in order to find faults in order to see if Mohammed sort of on his end was really a messenger or if he was fabricating something.
So the intention with which they were listening to the Quran was incorrect.
So they had a veil they had a cover of bias of prejudice over their hearts. And because of that, whatever they heard it would not enter their hearts, which are under Allah Kuru became a kindergarten nfo who
was he as an Indian worker, and on top of that, in their ears is a heaviness, deafness.
The word welcome is from the room factor as well powerful and welcome literally is heaviness, a heavy load, and primarily the word is used for a load that a donkey carries meaning that is carried by
If you look at it, generally, donkeys when they're loaded with something on both sides of the donkey, there is a load
isn't it on both sides on both sides it's equal if it's not equal, what's going to happen? It may fall from one side.
So, what is that load that way that is equal on both sides.
And the word was suppliers info is used for a camera load meaning a load that is carried by a camera.
So if we are there any worker so what is a heaviness? And it's used for the heaviness in a person's ears?
In other words, when a person finds difficult to hear,
this is not deafness. This is not that a person is completely deaf and is unable to hear a single sound. But what is it when a person finds difficulty in hearing?
Well, he added any worker and in their ears there is heaviness because of which they do not hear.
Meaning they do not listen what kind of listening, some are of obul because remember, there are different types of listening different types of hearing. One is of Iraq, meaning you just hear a sound.
And the other is of Kabul, which is to accept.
Like for example, when you say in the law, hola Samira Dora, what does it mean?
That Allah is Samir Dora doesn't mean that he just listens to the mouse. What does it mean that he accepts? When you said listen to me? What does it mean? hear what I'm saying? Not just that, but accept what I'm saying.
So will he add any walkera and this prevents them from accepting what they hear. This prevents them from accepting what they hear
what he or Oh, couldn't attend. And because of this reason, if they see every single sign with sign that rules the truthfulness of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, then what's going to happen? Let me know because they're not going to believe in it.
Even if they see every single ayah
had their until, meaning their technique, their denial has reached such a level that what do they do in a job aka when they come to you? You know, they argue with you
that when they come to you, they don't enjoy listening to the Quran. But when they face you, they argue with you.
We know that there were some machine who would go secretly in order to listen to the prophets or alarms and recite the Quran.
They will go by night on the profits or loss and would be reciting the Quran and Sunnah.
Then they will go by and secretly in order to listen. Why, because the Quran in its style, it's very eloquent, it's beautiful. And for someone who understands the Arabic language, it's extremely beautiful.
So they would go to listen,
but they would not accept, they will not accept, they will not believe in it.
And when they would face the profit or loss of seven, instead of talking to him about the Quran, instead of appreciating the Quran before him, what would they do? They would argue with him.
They knew in their hearts that the ethical and is true, but they wouldn't accept and upon seeing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they would argue with him. He akula Dina cafaro those people who disbelieve they say in Haida Illa
this Quran, this is nothing except the stories except the tales the legends of the previous people.
That's what it is.
Now, why did they say that?
Because of the bias that they had, because the prejudice that they had?
Because if you like someone, and if they're telling you a story, even if it's untrue,
aren't you going to enjoy it? Aren't you going to appreciate it? You are. But if you don't like someone, if you don't like what they're saying,
then no matter how beautiful is what they're saying, You're still going to give negative remarks.
Isn't it so? So this is why they call the ugly
as athlete as a Florida restore. From the theater scene thorough and subtle. satara is to write something in a line
is to write something in a line and suffer is actually used for a line. And mistura is used for a myth or a legend or a tale.
So basically, it's a story that in reality is false. But it is so wild.
Widely known and accepted by people that it is actually written
again and again and again.
Like, for example, Disney stories.
Everybody knows they're untrue.
But aren't there's so many versions of the story
they written over and over again, over so many generations. Everybody knows it's untrue.
But still people narrate them.
People write them, people show them.
So they call the Quran SF little away.
Meaning they said, these are a salaried. These are legends and myths that are willing, meaning the previous people they fabricated they came up with, and why did they say that the Quran was associated or willing,
in order to imply that it is not working, it is not revelation.
It is a story that the previous people had fabricated, and he's just reiterating them. He's just narrating them. It's not actually what he's not actually revelation.
And to also imply that all that he's saying is actually false. Just like, myths and legends and all these stories are a false similarity. What he's saying is also false. There's nothing true about it.
So what's the conclusion? That there are some people from another machine who come to listen to you,
they enjoy listening to the Quran.
The Quran become organic and listen to the Quran. However, despite listening, it doesn't enter their hearts.
They don't hear it with the hearing of acceptance. Why? Because of their own prejudice because of their bias against you.
And this denial that they have you This is so severe that when they come to you, instead of talking about the Quran to appreciate the Quran before you What do they do, they argue with you.
And if they're asked about the Quran, that what do you think about it? They say, it's nothing except the stories of the previous people.
So what do we learn from this ayah?
First of all, we learned that all the machine, they're not the same. Because Allah subhanaw taala has been home among them.
And this shows that all the machine they're not the same. There are different types of machine. There are some machine who worship the stars and stones, some worship other messengers, some worship angels. They're different types of machine in their epita.
Then they wish they can there are some who are leaders. And there are some who are followers, blind followers, some who invented
the concept of false gods and other people who without question without any reasoning without any logical just following in their footsteps,
that this is something that our parents have always done.
This is something that is done in our culture, so I do it as well.
So there are those leaders and there are those followers. There are some people who deny outright who are opponents and there are some who are apologetics.
There are some who have some interest in Islam.
There are different types of machine.
We also learn from this ayah that the beauty of the Quran,
or the miraculous nature of the Quran is so miraculous, it is so beautiful, that It impresses even those people who don't believe in the Quran.
It amazes even those people who don't believe in the Quran,
the eloquence, the beauty.
And if you look at it, throughout history, there have been so many people till today who don't believe in the Quran. But they're very impressed by the eloquence of the Quran.
There's recently I saw a video of this woman
who read through the Quran, and she didn't just rely on translation.
She compared several translations and also the Arabic using the dictionary.
And she said that the actual column in the Arabic column is different from the translation meaning you don't get to enjoy the Quran as it is from the translation.
So even she realized that the Quran in Arabic is the real Quran and that is what is beautiful.
And she had a completely different perspective of the Quran compared to what other people have.
So we learn about the beauty and the miraculous nature of the Quran that impresses even those people who don't believe in it.
And this was even at the time of the Prophet sallallaahu said,
we learned from different directions that Abuja, Abu sufian and other people are not even sure that
they came to listen to the Prophet sallallahu reciting the Quran at night.
And they came secretly mean they wouldn't tell one another because they were supposed to be the opponents.
So they wouldn't tell one another that Oh, I'm going to listen
To the client, so they would go in the night listen.
And when they would leave, by the morning time, they would happen to see one another.
And they would promise that they would not go again the next night, but then they would go again.
We also know from this ayah, that each person who listens to the Quran does not necessarily benefit from it.
And this is something very scary.
There's something very dangerous,
that there may be many people who are listening to Quran, but every person is not benefiting from it.
There are some people who only listen and enjoy the words,
who enjoy what Allah subhanaw taala is saying. But that's it.
It's only at the level of words, it's only at the level of exercising your mind. And that's it. That Oh, look at the words are so beautiful. Or look at the command it makes so much sense. But that's it, it doesn't go into the heart. Why?
Because of their incorrect intention.
They're not listening, do gain guidance, they're not listening to know but what they can do to please Allah subhanaw taala to come closer to Allah. But there's some other objective. There's some other objective.
Because if a person's Nia is that he's learning the Quran, because I want to know what to do,
I want to know how I can please my lab, then you will not question that Oh, what about this? And what about that? No, whatever he will learn, he will try to do it.
Because his objective is to please his Lord.
We also learned from this ayah about severe warning against not benefiting from listening to the Quran.
And if we are listening to the Quran, how can we benefit? If we're really paying attention? That the Nia is correct, yes, but at the same time, if we're paying attention as well, because sometimes the Koran is being recited, but our mind is elsewhere, in a completely different world.
If we're not paying attention, how can it enter our hearts? If it's just the sound that we're enjoying, then that's not the objective. The objective is that it should enter the heart.
We also learn from this ayah that those people who have bias and prejudice against others, they do not benefit from the truth, even upon seeing it and appreciating it.
Do you understand
that if a person is biased, if a person has prejudice against someone,
then the truth that they say, or what they say, even if what they say is correct, and even if what they say you appreciate it,
still, you will not be able to benefit from it. You might say, oh, wow, look at that, what they have said, such a good comment.
But you will not be able to benefit. Why because of the prejudice because of the bias in the heart.
We also learn from this ayah that those people who don't believe in the Quran, they say the Quran is stories of the people off, or that the previous books, they mentioned the same thing. And this person, Hamlet's are about to send them He has also taken some stories from there. And he has added some from somewhere else. And he has come up with a book.
And we learn from a hadith that is recorded in Bahati.
And so there are a narrative that there was a Christian man who embraced Islam.
And he read through the Baqara. And sort of early on.
And he was one of the scribes, because there were very few people who could write. So he was one of those people who could write. So he was one of those people who used to write the revelation for the prophet SAW the Lotus I mean, the prophet sort of artisan would recite to him, and he would write it down for the Quran to be recorded.
And we learned that later on this person, he returned to Christianity.
He apostatized and he used to say that Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him. He doesn't know anything except for that which I have written for him. And we learned that this person eventually and so they learn when he said that a law caused him to die, and the people buried him.
But in the morning, they thought that the Earth had thrown his body out.
And they said, this is the act of Muhammad and his companions.
They dug the grave of our companion and they took his body out of it because he had run away from them.
They again dug the grave deeply for him. But in the morning, they saw that the Earth had thrown his body out.
And they said this is an act of Muhammad and his companions, and they dug the grave of our companion and they threw his body out, for he had run away from
from them, they dug the grave for him as deep as they could. But in the morning, they again saw that the Earth had thrown his body out.
So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by any human being. But it was by a loss of panel data that the Earth was literally throwing him out.
And remember that line against a loss of data? What is it? It's something very serious. In our life, we have one
and the last Haasan of this person was even shown in Italy.
