lesson number 79 SoTL anon
or the hosteller levina cat there will be recall in those will have lost who deny the meeting with Allah? hasira casilla What does hasura mean? That they have suffered damage they have incurred loss and which loss is this
absolute loss called the hustler larina camdeboo bellicon Ella, and what is the meeting with Allah? The Day of Judgment, the resurrection, there is a
hatter until either Mozart until the hour will come to them.
What does it mean by had the
meaning they will deny and it is believed until the hour comes to them unexpectedly.
They continue to do they continue to live in a life of denial. A life of rejection.
Until all of a sudden the SAR comes to them unexpectedly both. What is the sour sour refers to the Day of Judgment, the pm however, remember that there is Sara silver and there is a Sarah that is Cobra.
What is sour to soda? That because my method for the comet to matter who the person who dies and his family has been established, because his life is over, he's finished now.
And Asara. First you also saw some Cobra meaning the Day of Judgment over here, however, it refers to what
had died at Masada better than that.
So they continue to deny, they continue to live a life of denial until all of a sudden death comes to them both that and Botha is from the infectious bellingcat. And it is when something comes unexpectedly unannounced
that we without any warning. While the person is busy in his usual routine, he's going about with his usual daily tasks, one thing after the other, and all of a sudden, he sees the angel of death before him.
without any warning, he wasn't even thinking about it.
He wasn't even mentally ready for it. He had no idea he never imagined he never thought.
One is that a person realizes that yes, one day I'm going to die. And a person believes that I could die at any moment. And because of that he's living a life of consciousness.
That he is living his life in an organized way. Every night that he goes to sleep he makes sure that he's performed is for all he has not neglected anything that he has forgiven the people whom he was upset with.
Even though the injured that will not come Okay, I'm coming in an hour. Yes, even that is unexpected. However, it is more unexpected for the one who was not even thinking about that. Who was not even preparing for that. If a person is preparing for that, yes, that will come, surprisingly, but it won't be as big of a surprise for him. Because he was preparing for it. And when he will see the angel of death. What will he be told?
What do we learn in sort of?
Yeah, a year two and a half. So mokaba in Algeria in Iraq be hirakata mateja photography, everybody locally jannetty. So even if the interview did come without warning, it won't be terrible.
However, a person who was not even mentally ready not even mentally prepared. He doesn't even think about his death. For him the Sarah is
hotter either. Elijah Toma, Sarah to both attend kalu they will say yeah has written over to us.
Has rotten Oh our sorrow. How sad
or grief of ours? Yes, Latina.
What does yummy? Yeah means Oh, and it generally used to call someone. It's helped me to determine that sometimes it is also used for explanation.
It's not literally that they're calling Hazara, but it is to show the increase in the hustler. Yeah has retina or our hustler.
Meaning how great how terrible is our hustler.
And what is hustler it is to express extreme regret with sorrow over losing something from one's hand.
So yeah, has Sultana either my father Latina, how sad how sorrowful we are, how regretful we are on mfr rotten efia over that which we neglected concerning it for Latina from the left
and furoate is to deliberately rush ahead, what does it mean to deliberately rush ahead and far rather the free is to be negligent
to be negligent. So basically, if fraud is to exceed the bounds and the fleet is to be negligent, concerning the balance, you understand its extremes.
If route is to overdo something and the fleet is to under do is to be neglectful to be negligent.
So your has forgotten our island forgotten figure over that which we were neglectful concerning. Concerning more concerning the
that we did not prepare for the we did not do what we were supposed to do. We neglected preparing for our agenda for our
how, by wasting our retirement unnecessary things,
wasting our time and unnecessary things.
A week goes by and we don't know where that week went. And there is nothing that is worth mentioning.
Yeah, has Latina,
Latina via wilhemina ozada. Home, and they will carry their burdens ozada as a Florida with it and what is a wizard, a burden? Which burden that a person carries on himself.
It's not that a person has put it in the bag and he's dragging that back. No, he is carrying it on himself. Well, homea Madonna I was out on they will be carrying their burdens are allowed luteum upon their backs. Which burdens Are these the burdens of since
the recompense for their
life for example, a person who has stolen from the public Treasury, whatever that he has stolen, he will be carrying that object on his back on the Day of Judgment.
Whatever it is, well whom he owes out or whom I know who to him, at a certain is unquestionably even as that which they're carrying?
What do we learn from this ayah?
First of all, we learned about the importance of preparing for death
that a person should be Yes, he should be mentally prepared. But at the same time, you should be actively preparing for death.
Ask yourself every day. What if I die today?
Am I ready to die?
Yes, no one is ready to die.
However, can I say that if I die? Now? I'm content with what I've done so far.
I think I could get by in the year after with what I've done so far. Maybe Allah would be pleased with me. Is it really something that we have ready that we can show in the era?
Or is it that I'm still waiting for some miracle to happen to that I will change and I will get everything done?
We learned about the importance of being prepared for that. And being prepared for that does not just mean that a person should be worried about his actions, but what he has prepared for the AHA. But ultimately, he's leaving behind
that whatever I have, is there any amount of that belonged to somebody else that I have to return?
And if I have it, and if I need it for some time? And if I cannot return it today, because I need it tomorrow, then Have I mentioned it clearly have I put it out clearly so that if I have to leave all of a sudden, people behind me know that this doesn't belong to me, and they give it to the rightful owner?
Or are my things all messed up? That even I cannot tell between what is mine? And what is somebody else's?
We have to be prepared for the answer. We have to be prepared for that. And we must think about death regularly because we don't know when we're going to die.
We don't know. It could be any moment. Don't wait till tomorrow. Don't wait for next year. Don't wait for next week. Don't wait for the weekend. Don't wait for the night, do it now.
Don't leave it for later. Do it now. And if you don't do it now, you will never be able to do it.
You will never be able to do it.
Because we learned that people in the hereafter they will say if only we could be sent back What does Allah say they're lying because if they were sent back, they're not going to change their ways. Somebody this went for HUD recently and they were telling us that they realized that things that they want to start in their life, they have to start doing them now. They can't wait for later.
Because for instance, we think that okay, when I'm done with this, then I will start reciting the Quran every single day. Then I will start seeing my son regularly. All of us think like that. When I am done with this then I will start praying
but life is going to continue. It's going to
Key Point. And we realize that people who are not used to doing either here, when they go for Hajj, they don't know what to do.
They think it's a waste of time.
They find it so difficult to stay there because they're not used to doing it better.
And you may have noticed that the things that you were doing regularly, you may have been able to continue with them in this past week of the break, but things that you were not doing regularly, you didn't even find time to do them.
So whatever that is important to you do it now. Don't leave it for later. Because you don't know when that is going to come. You don't want it to come back. And all of a sudden by surprise, and you're not even ready for it.
I was just thinking that, since it's a new year, people usually make new year's resolutions. And they remember what they did in the past. They said, Oh, we couldn't lose this much weight, or we didn't have this habit. And this year, this is going to be on yours have it? And I was thinking that, you know, on the day of judgment, people will say things like, yeah, late and IKEA has forgotten that, you know, Woe to us of what we did in the past. And on that day, they won't have any way of going back. But now we do have like, if we look even at the past week, right? I observe two groups yesterday. And I asked, you know, did you do your lesson one whole week? And the response
that I got majority of the responses that I got was no we didn't. One week, you couldn't take out half an hour to do your lesson seven times. So imagine if your last week was like this, what about the last year? What have we done? So we need to really change our actions and start these habits now and continue them regularly. Because if we get a week off, yes, you are allowed to have a break, you're allowed to relax a bit, but then you also have some sorts of duties, and you have to continue them as well.
Exactly. And we all wish to be harmful. And so I will come and be of the people of the Quran on the Day of Judgment. But if we spend a week away from the Quran not even reciting in one day, then how can we expect such an end? How can we expect the Quran to be our companion in the grave? Because right now we're reading and only because we have to.
It's our homework, that's it. But when we're free when we're not obligated, then we leave it.
What does that show that it's not actually companionship with the Quran, it's just something else. It's not called on.
And if it's really a hold on, then no matter where you are, what situation what time of life, you will be with.
When the break started, you must have thought, oh, there is a whole week I can do this, I can do this, I can do this. And you didn't even realize and all of a sudden, it's Sunday night. And you realize the whole week is over. And this is how that will come. That we think we have a long time. We have so much time I can do this, I can do that. You know what I'm done with this course. And I will start doing this. And you don't even realize and life is over.
Life is too short, to delay and defer important things. Whatever is important to you do it now. Don't leave it off tomorrow.
We also learn from this ayah that on the Day of Judgment, people will carry the burden off their sins.
You see a mother She also bears the burden of her child in her womb. But this is a good burden and she carries it happily. But on the Day of Judgment, people will be carrying a burden that is worse. That is evil, that is heavy.
That is going to be very difficult for them to bear it's going to be a cause of embarrassment for them, a cause of humiliation for them.
So they said that upon entering the grave, every unjust person will meet a man with an ugly face. dark skin awful order. Wearing dirty clothes are basically someone who is extremely dirty, who will enter his grave with him.
When the unjust person sees him, he will say how ugly is your face? And he will reply. So is your work? It was very ugly.
The unjust person will say how foul is the order coming from you? He will reply Such was the case with your work. It stunk.
The unjust person will say how dirty are your clothes and he will reply and your work to was dirty.
The unjust person will ask Who are you? He will reply I am your deeds. So he will remain with the unjust person in his grave. And when he is resurrected on the Day of Resurrection. his companion will say to him in the life of the world. I used to carry you because you follow desire and lust today you carry me so he will ride on the unjust persons back and lead him until he enters the fire
Anything and everything that we do
it is stuck to us. And in this dunya even we are recognized by our actions. When you think of a person, what do you think about them, the actions that they do, the way they speak,
the things they do, the way they behave. We are known by our actions on the day of judgment as well. People will be known by their actions how that they will be carrying their sense. And as a man as Iran evil it is, which they carry.
Woman higher to dunya and the life of this world is nothing in the lottery one except amusement.
While our one and diversion play, it's just play an amusement. Well, Adele, Fierro to highroller DNA attack on flf therapy alone, but the home of the hereafter It is best for those who fear Allah. So will you not reason? Will you not get it? That this life of dunya it's only a Larry, it's only low. And the real home is that of the author and it is hired for who for those people who have DACA, then don't you get it? How come you're spending more time for your lunia than for your How come you're more concerned about your dunia than you're
hired to do
again and hire the dunya dunya is that which is lesser compared to the
the reality of this life is nothing except Larry, what is Larry,
again, a sport
And generally when you play, you're physically involved in that game in that sport.
For example, people are playing soccer or basketball or something like that they're physically involved.
So nine refers to physically being engaged in something, physical involvement in something. And there's the new year, we are physically engaged, physically involved, one action leads to the other one activity leads to the other. If you look at it from the beginning to the end of the day,
you start with one thing, you go to the next to the next to the next, and the whole day is over.
Just like a game, what happens in a game,
people are focused on the ball that goes from here, then it goes there it goes there. And within a few hours, the game is over finished.
Similarly, the whole day, this whole life is moving from one activity to the next. Until eventually life is over.
Larry, physical involvement.
And it's also low on amusement, what is low distraction,
meaning something that distracts a person from that which is more important. Why? Because it is something that a person finds amusing. He finds pleasure in.
So learn his physical and low is when a person's heart is engaged in something
when a person's heart is occupied with something.
So this dunya is nothing except physical activity, physical engagement.
And it's also just low. Meaning something that you find pleasure in something that you enjoy, for some time, something that you amuse yourself with for some time, and then it's over.
Like, for example, a person is sitting in a gathering, he's talking. And after some hours, the gathering is over, finished.
He enjoyed himself, he found a lot of pleasure. But after some time it's over. Similarly, the life of dystonia. A person lives for some time, he becomes happy. He becomes distracted by it. But after some time, it's over. It's finished. Well,
it's live. And it's
it's also called narrabundah. Why? Because they do this live of the world. It is very short.
It's very short.
And it finishes very quickly.
Just like a game, when it starts, you think that it's the most important thing in this life. Especially for those people who are involved in playing the game.
They can think about their house. They don't think about the children, all that they're concerned about is the ball. Larry, Willow,
and within two hours, one hour, three hours, it's finished. It's over.
Similarly, this dunya a person lives in it. This life, a person lives through it, and he thinks it's the most important thing to him. But within a few years, it's finished it's over.
So in its length, it's like a level
ebb and flow.
You go to a gathering you talk, you have some fun, you go have a party. After some hours, you go back home, it's over.
You play a game on your phone. After a few minutes, it's over.
Similarly, this life, you play in it for some time. And after some time, it's over, it's finished. Very short. It's not that long, very, very short.
Woman her the dunya in the lair, even when,
when Adele Serato. And surely the woman thing you're after it is high, you don't. How is it high
in quantity as well as quality,
in quantity as well as quality, it is better for who those people who have Taqwa
meaning a person who lives in this dunya with the core, saving himself from what Allah has forbidden,
saving himself from what will lead him to the Hellfire, saving himself from that which could harm him. For him the ACA is better, provided that he has lived a life of the core.
Remember when? Or motive the guy who asked Cardinal dinardo buck when he said that? Have you ever passed through the passage, or like an alley between shrubs and thorny trees and thorny plants? And he said, Yes, he said, How do you walk through it?
He said, I collect my thoughts together, I gather them together, and then I pass very carefully. And he said, This is what the call is.
That there is Larry, and there is love, everywhere in this dunya. But what does a person do? He puts himself within limits. He saves himself and very carefully, very cautiously. He goes through life. He goes through life. And for a person who has lived his life like that. For him a threat is much better. FLR therapy alone? Don't you get it? Don't you understand? Don't you use your mind
that there are so many people who have passed on before you. They had huge houses. They played a lot. They made a lot of money. But they all died.
You also right now you're living in this dunya. But very soon your death is also going to come? Don't you get it This life is not everything.
It's going to be over. Focus on that which is everything focus on that which is eternal.
What do we learn from this i? First of all, we learned about the reality of this life.
The reality of this life,
that it is temporary.
It's just Larry bilgewater, meaning you are physically engaged. And love with kulu meaning your heart is also engaged, meaning you find enjoyment and pleasure through this life.
But that is the only reality of this life. It's temporary. It's going to finish very soon.
And isn't it amazing? Sometimes you go play something. For example, as children, you may have played a lot of games, you may have played a lot of sports. You remember each and every one of them.
No, maybe you remember that you play the game once upon a time. But you don't remember every moment of it. Why? Because it's not that important. Maybe you remember just that moment where you scored a goal. That's all you remember.
But the rest of it you don't remember this is what life is
that we spend our lives thinking that every single moment is so important that I can't even take time out to the I can't even take time out to bring my son because this is so important. This is so urgent.
But after a week when you think is there anything that is worth mentioning that you did in the past week, nothing. Nothing worth mentioning. Nothing worth remembering.
For the dunya Allah subhanaw taala says that it is Larry and lo when you go to play a game, do you stay there? No, you come back home.
When you were having some fun, are you always in that state of having that fun? No. It's all very soon. But for the most part it says well at
home of the hereafter because Home is where you stay.
Home is where you live.
Home is where you find peace in where you find happiness in
dunya is not home. What is the actual home?
The home of the year after that is best for those people who have to remember that segment in which it is said that the NEA is like the prison are Who? The believer adonia sigil movement or general cafe and its agenda of the cafe. So when a person is in the prison, does he think that that prison is his home?
Does he begin decorating his prison cell? No. He doesn't care in the least
about it. What Is he concerned about? My actual house, my real house, that is where he wants to go.
Which is why he doesn't attach himself to that prison that he's in.
Similarly, when living in the dunya, we should not attach ourselves for dystonia, our attachment should be taught to the home of the Hereafter, the home of the hereafter
when Adele aphylla, to highroller, Latina tekun, flf.
I have some results already. So I might as well just do another one. But if we think about it on a bigger scale, like suppose you're backbiting about somebody, and you think that Oh, on the judgment, I'm gonna carry that, like, just anything? And then if you think about it that way, it makes, yes, because people think that, what's the big deal, you know, I have so many anyway, might as well get some more. But on the Day of Judgment, when a person is carrying the visit, then every gram is even extremely difficult to carry.
You know, how if you're traveling, and you've taken a lot of luggage with you, and you have a lot of hand luggage as well with you. And if you have to carry all that with you, and by chance, if your flight gets delayed, or it gets canceled, and you're stuck in the airport, and you have to drag that trolley, although you're dragging it, it's more difficult. And you just wish to just leave it there.
I remember when we went for Hutch, something happened with our flights. So we were stuck at the airport all night. And we happen to have a trolley bag with us. And each one of us just wanted to throw it away, literally, because it was so burdensome, so burdensome. So if we can't even bear the load of this dunya in the hereafter on the day of Russia, when it will not be a nice carry bag would rather it's going to be wizard that it's going to be in the ugliest form, it's going to be a source of punishment and humiliation for a person, how can a person carry that.
So if we see the reality of things before us, and we will stay away from them.
this works, that says that life is just like a game. It really hit me because I'm a computer games addict. So I feel that I know that when I'm playing Yeah, I'm so into it. And when you're lost in dunya, you're so into it. And you don't know when it's gonna end, for example, when the game finishes, or sometimes he doesn't even finish the Xbox dies on you. And then you feel Oh, I tried so hard for nothing. And now I realized that, you know, in this and you know what you right after, and then it's gonna end one day, and then you don't want to say that, oh, I tried hard for nothing. You want to be able to say, Oh, this was worth it.
Recently, when we came here, my grandfather was really sick, and he passed away. So when he passed away, you're expecting someone or old age. Yes, that's true. But it doesn't really hit you until What happened? It hit me when a friend of mine back at in Edmonton. She passed when she was 14 years old. And it was in the same timeframe. And I'm like, that isn't biased. Like it just happens to you whenever so it's it's
it could come back, especially for a person who's not mentally ready for it.
That also reminds me a story like, just recently, I had a friend he had died just like two weeks ago. And I remember seeing him like in the summertime. And then all of a sudden you just hear like he's gone. He's dead. And it was like 2324. And then there was another brother that was at my school, who was 16 years old and he had actually drowned. And then like there's so much other stories of young people going and it's like, we let our young age we just let ourselves be reckless. And then we don't realize that death could come at whatever time whatever age it doesn't matter.
We don't at the beginning of this whole have some other agenda. He has fixed the agenda. And you're supposed to die at that time.
I was just thinking about yesterday's lesson, actually, when we were talking about the people who used to mock the punishment, and then the parish nations. And I remember when we were doing the lesson yesterday, I was thinking about the people of Pompeii, and how the Mount Vesuvius erupted. And they, they knew about it from beforehand, but they hadn't prepared anything. And they hadn't like evacuated the city or anything. And they were destroyed because of that. And you can still look at them and how they're they're completely preserved in their exact state that they were in when the mountain when the volcano erupted. And you can see that they haven't done anything they're going on
with their regular day to day life. And I was thinking about that with these verses and how we know that the day of judgment is coming. We know that our death is coming, but we haven't prepared anything at all. And how is that different than what they did? And when we look at the people of Pompeii, like a lot of times when you watch documentaries, people are like, how could they be so stupid? Why? Why were they doing that? Why were they just living, they knew that they could see the mountains or the volcanoes are erupting, we can see it in the distance. And yet they're just going on going with their day to day life. And we we know for sure that the death is coming. And yet we're
not doing anything. We see people dying. We hear people dying, but still we don't change our behavior.
So I just wanted to like say that like the last is as an athlete, so it's like your home. It's your choosing what you want your home to be. If you want your home to be the Hellfire, then that's your choice. If you want the home to be genuine. You've got to work for Disney. The process of them said that Gemma has a lot of hardships around it. And the Hellfire has so many desires. It's just up to you to choose. You can control your desires. You have the ability to control it. It's just you want to control Are you gonna let your desires
