00:00:01--> 00:00:06

fanola Then why is Jehovah sooner when our punishment came to them?

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

They did not humble themselves.

00:00:12--> 00:00:36

Then how come when the punishment came upon them these people, they did not become humble. What's the problem? When I came across a total boom, but their hearts became hard, was they ended up homeless shavon America, New York, Milan and shavon made it attractive for them, that which they have been doing, this is why they did not become humble. This is why they did not turn to allow

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

over your most apparent artifice, fanola Why not?

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

You see this word Lola, this comes many many times.

00:00:46--> 00:00:49

And it basically has four usages.

00:00:51--> 00:00:55

It has four usages First of all, Lola is into an area.

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

What does that mean? It gives a sense of If not,

00:01:00--> 00:01:05

you can sit prevented gives a sense of if not. So for example,

00:01:06--> 00:01:26

we learn from the Quran, while Ola La Jolla aleikum wa rahmatullah who had it not been for the favor of Allah and His mercy, then a punishment would descend upon you, you will be in a difficult situation. So, Lola, what does Lola mean had it not been for this in this reason?

00:01:27--> 00:01:32

If not, for such and such reason, then such and such would happen.

00:01:33--> 00:01:38

Secondly, Lola is for meeting request.

00:01:39--> 00:02:08

It is for request. Like for example, a person at the time of death he would say Lola Horton in an agile inquiry. Oh Allah, why did you not give me rest bite for some more time? So no, no, what does it mean? Why did you not meaning you should have Why did you not meaning you should have. Similarly we learned from the Quran, Lola testosterone Allah, why do you not see forgiveness from Allah meaning seek forgiveness from Allah.

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

So Lola wants to give the central request.

00:02:13--> 00:02:30

Thirdly, it is also for the purpose of surgery and there'll be meaning for reproach like over here, that Lola is Jehovah sooner? How come when the punishment came upon them? They did not become humble. Meaning they should have Why didn't they? They must have.

00:02:32--> 00:02:46

Similarly, we learned earlier that Lola in hell Homer Rabbani, uniwell. How come they were Benny Yun and they don't stop them. Don't forbid them. Meaning they should to it is also for the purpose of surgery and there'll be

00:02:48--> 00:02:55

then fourthly, it is for the purpose of stfm for interrogation. Like for instance, the people of NACA would say Lola on Zilla la humaniq.

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

Why has an interlocking incentive on him?

00:03:00--> 00:03:20

So Dona is used in several ways over here? It is for the purpose of surgery and therapy for reproach that How come? Why not known that is Jerome Botswana? Why didn't they humble themselves? Why did they not turn to Allah? Why didn't they understand? Nola? Is Jehovah Suna, who?

00:03:22--> 00:03:34

When I can kosaku What's the reason? Because their hearts became hard. And they became so hard that they would not become soft, even at the affliction of so many calamities. Because a soft heart.

00:03:36--> 00:04:00

What happens to it when it goes through difficulty immediately, a person would start crying. Immediately a person starts praying. But a person who has a hard heart, no matter what he goes through, he does not break. Not even a tear comes out of his eyes. He doesn't even think of praying to Allah. He doesn't think of changing his ways. He doesn't even think of reflecting on his actions that maybe I did something wrong.

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

When I can cassette kuruva home.

00:04:04--> 00:04:15

And secondly, what's the second reason was a gentleman who was shaved on American we are in Milan and shaitan has adorned for them the deeds which they have been doing, which is why they don't wish to change their ways.

00:04:16--> 00:04:32

The actions that they have been doing, they liked them so much. They find them so beautiful. They enjoy them so much. They don't want to leave them. So even if they realize that what they're doing is wrong. And because of that they're suffering harm. They don't want to change. They don't want to leave their ways.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

was a Yahuwah shavon omeka and we are muddled. What do we learn from this ayah?

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

First of all, we learned

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

that the objective behind sending the calamities mean the reason why Allah subhanaw taala sends calamities is so that a person becomes humble.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

Because Allah says Lola, how come they did not become humble, when the reason behind sending the best was that they've been

00:05:00--> 00:05:00

Come humble.

00:05:01--> 00:05:06

So the reason behind sending the calamity is so that a person becomes humble.

00:05:08--> 00:05:15

And this should be the behavior of a person when he goes through any difficulty, any calamity,

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

any calamity, any difficulty.

00:05:19--> 00:05:33

Yes, reflect on your deeds, that maybe I've done something wrong. Yes, at the same time, see? Maybe other people are doing little money. Okay, fine. Maybe it's not fair. Okay, fine. But why did Allah allow this to happen?

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

Why? There is a reason?

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

Because many times we say, No, I haven't done anything wrong. It's these people. It's their fault. They're lazy.

00:05:42--> 00:05:54

They're not doing what they should be doing. They're being unjust. They're unfair, they should change their ways. But if you think of it, why did Allah allow them to be unfair towards you?

00:05:55--> 00:06:04

Good, allanon protection, good Ilana TV. Of course he could. But he allowed them to harm you. He allowed them to afflict you with some difficulty.

00:06:05--> 00:06:18

So the reason behind sending the problems Our way is that we become humble. So whenever we face any problem, whether it is coming from another person, or it is coming from a person's money, or any way whatsoever,

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

what's the objective, that we become humble.

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

And you see, if everything is fine, then we become so attached to this world, become so content with it, we become so happy with it, that we find that only if we have it, then we will be satisfied.

00:06:37--> 00:06:49

And we see that when we're cut off from people, when people don't please us, when things don't satisfy us. Then what happens we have no interest left and people we have no interest left in things. And automatically a person turns to a muscle.

00:06:51--> 00:07:02

So a lot of parents are the center difficulties are away, so that we don't have any attachment left with these things with people. And we are only interested in a loss of

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

that the love of all these things is taken away from our hearts.

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

Remember that whenever a person does something wrong, he could go through two conditions. First of all, when he does something wrong, his heart approaches

00:07:18--> 00:07:29

his conscience, it limits him and he tries to leave the wrong but he's able to, because of lack of him and he cries he makes and eventually of us pans out it gives him to the field to change his ways.

00:07:30--> 00:07:49

But the other is that a person, his heart has become so hard, that no matter what difficulty he's going through, he continues in the wrongs that he is doing. He presents justifications he enjoys it. And such a person is not given the trophy to change. Such a person is not given the trophy to humble himself.

00:07:50--> 00:08:01

One is that when you do something wrong, your heart tells you this is not right. And when you see some harmful consequences, you tell yourself this is because I did something wrong.

00:08:02--> 00:08:13

I brought this upon myself. And the other is that a parent says no, it's okay if I do it, no big deal. And when he sees some difficulty coming his way, he says I don't care about it.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

Not a big deal. I don't care about it.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

There are two completely different behaviors. One is that of a person who is hard hearted and the other is that of a person who is soft hearted.

00:08:25--> 00:08:44

Who we also learned from this ayah that a person who does not humble before Allah in difficulty. A person who does not humble before a loss of pentatonic in times of difficulty, then he certainly has a hard heart. He definitely has a heart that is very hard.

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

Because his eyes Don't weep.

00:08:49--> 00:09:01

His heart does not shudder with fear, his arrogance his ego does not break that no matter what he goes through, he does not cry, he does not humble before Allah.

00:09:02--> 00:09:15

Instead, he becomes angry, he becomes upset. He objects at the decree of a loss of panel data and instead of coming closer to Allah, He distances further away from him.

00:09:17--> 00:09:35

Do you see where the difficulty comes? What's the reason? A person becomes humble and draws closer to Allah. But a person who does not become humble? What happens to him? Does he come close to Allah? No. He distances away farther away from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:36--> 00:09:45

Because he objects and he says, This is not fair. Why do I deserve this? I don't deserve this. Why has this come my way?

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

Where's the last mercy? Where's the last justice?

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

people begin to object and this is a sign up hard heartedness.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Think about it sometimes. When you are doing something, maybe you trip

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

You're cutting and you cut your hand slightly.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

How do people generally react? What comes out of their mouth?

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

swear words?

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

Generally swear words come out of their mouth and we have made our own versions.

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

Because we don't want to say the bad words What do we do? We slightly change the words that we're not actually saying that word but we mean it.

00:10:22--> 00:10:27

But is this a reaction that shows humidity before?

00:10:29--> 00:10:46

What does it show? objection? What does it show anger, frustration, but the purpose behind sending McCullough minister we become humble, we say stuff. Or we say enter the labor in a ledger. And instead of saying such statements, we swear we

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

say something good, for instance of Panama or in any language, Roger or Laila a llama. This is the objective that we come closer to a loss of penalty.

00:10:57--> 00:11:00

And a person who object he certainly has a hard heart.

00:11:02--> 00:11:24

We also learned from this ayah about the evidence that hearts they become hard after having been soft. Because a lot of paradisus cassettes, it became hard. They weren't initially hard. They weren't born with hard hearts. Their hearts became hard.

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

So a person should never feel safe. A person should never think that oh, I have a heart that is soft.

00:11:35--> 00:11:51

I don't have a hard heart. I'm fine. I don't need to worry about it. This is those people have mechanisms machine. This is not me harm the Lima Muslim nor any person his heart can become hard because Allah says we're lacking kosaku

00:11:52--> 00:12:03

What did we learn sort of dakara sama Cosette boo boo calm embody delic, then your hearts became hard after that, who's the bunny is fine. Who were they at that time, they were the believers of their time.

00:12:04--> 00:12:13

So in this is a severe warning. That if a person does not humble before Allah, that eventually what happens? His heart becomes hard.

00:12:14--> 00:12:31

Now in a person feels that his heart has become hard in the sense that when there's a difficulty instead of saying something good, he says something that is negative. Instead of accepting as as the decree of a law, a person objects at the decree of Allah. If he's praying, he cannot cry.

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

If he's making the law, he cannot cry.

00:12:36--> 00:12:45

He cannot even force himself to sit down and make the article most of the time. Isn't that a sign of art art? that a person's going through so many problems? What do you cannot take time out to print?

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

He cannot take time out to sit down and make what is that a sign of a heart heart?

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

A heart that is not humbling, a heart that is not breaking. So if a person feels that his heart is like that,

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

then he should worry about curing his heart heart.

00:13:03--> 00:13:08

Because if he does not and there is a serious problem, and there are serious consequences in the hereafter.

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

And what's the cure? What's the cure for a heart heart? First of all, it is catarratto clarity, meaning reciting the Quran

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

and not just reciting the Quran, but continuously constantly reciting it a lot katraj in abundance.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

A person should constantly recite the Quran

00:13:32--> 00:13:37

because the more a person recites the Quran, the softer his heart becomes.

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

And the farther a person is from the Quran, the farther he is from the most

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

because the Quran is what Alice can add.

00:13:47--> 00:14:00

If you are attached to the Quran, you will be attached to a lot depends on if you're away from the Quran, you will be away from Allah subhanaw taala if you come closer to the Quran, you're coming closer to Allah soprano. Because the Quran is Allah Subhana Allah speech.

00:14:01--> 00:14:08

And when a person is reciting, you shouldn't just be focusing on the letters, but rather, he should reflect over the time as well.

00:14:10--> 00:14:34

And reflecting over the Quran does not necessarily mean that a person comes into the class and goes away and puts the Quran away in his bag and that's it. No, reflecting on the Quran means opening up the Quran when you're sitting in private, reading the ayat over and over again, pausing and thinking, relating it to yourself. If there is mention of the Hellfire person seek refuge, if there is mention of a good quality of present mix are all like give me the trophy to develop this quality as well.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

This is what reflection is

00:14:38--> 00:14:43

that a person is not just reciting to complete the page to complete half the jewels to complete the surah.

00:14:44--> 00:14:54

Or just to improve is that read, but he is reciting do come closer to a loss of meaningful recitation, meaningful recitation.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

It's like if you're suffering from a health problem, somebody gives you a book on that particular

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

disease. And the time you read it is this reading the book going to help you know, when you read it, when you think about it, when you implement what's in the book, that's what's going to help you. That's what's going to cure you.

00:15:13--> 00:15:21

Just merely reading the book, day in and day out, is not going to help you. So similarly, get out of Toronto or something that softens the heart of a person.

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

Secondly, to the cola, increasing in remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:30--> 00:15:53

And again, that should be with consciousness, that should be with a mind and heart that is awake, that is alert. Not that a person is doing the corruptor this Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah, and he does not even realize what he's saying. He doesn't even think for a moment about what he's saying, a person should consciously force himself to do the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:54--> 00:16:08

Thirdly, another very important that helps softening the heart is muscle harbottle affair, meaning the company, the companionship of righteous people, the companionship of righteous people.

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

Because when a person is in the company of righteous people, then what is that going to lead him to

00:16:15--> 00:16:50

righteous deeds, because the people whom you're with, they affect you, they influence you, whatever they do, you will do if you're with someone who is very conscious about their Salah, and you know that they're not just those people who only pray that up. But the ultimate sure to stay there sooner than what's going to happen is it just going to be a five minute solid break? No, it's going to be a proper time taken out for soda. So when you are in the company of righteous people, then you will develop good habits. And you will be able to soften your heart as a result of that.

00:16:52--> 00:17:12

Another very important thing that helps a person soften His heart is a remnant of civil meaning being affectionate, being kind towards those who are smaller than you are civil, in those who are smarter than you and this smaller could be an age could be in status, could be in anything

00:17:14--> 00:17:27

to a person who is lesser than you in any way, a little child, a poor person, an orphan, a sick person. So visit those people who are lesser than you, and this will soften your heart.

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

We also learn from this idea that of the consequences of not changing one's ways upon the coming of calamities is that a person's heart becomes hard.

00:17:40--> 00:17:52

If a person does not change his ways, when he is suffering from difficulty, meaning he does not change them according to how the last panel data wants him to change, that what happens, a person's heart becomes hard.

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

And this is something very dangerous, very dangerous. Because as a person learns the Quran, as a person goes through the planning studies.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

There are many many things that he learns about,

00:18:07--> 00:18:07

isn't it?

00:18:08--> 00:18:12

And if it is not abundant, if he does not act upon them,

00:18:13--> 00:18:28

that eventually what happens? His heart becomes hard. His heart becomes hard if a person does not do harm upon them. If he says Yes, I know. I know. I know. And he does not act upon it. It does not change his ways that his heart will definitely become hard.

00:18:29--> 00:18:35

What do we learn Adam yet needed Latina Amano and Tushar Kuru boom, the tequila

00:18:36--> 00:18:56

because in that is mentioned about the people who are before us. That football or lady will Emma do focus at Hulu, that then when they delayed so much, and the time there was a long time that passed by without them changing their ways. As a result, what happened, their hearts became hard.

00:18:57--> 00:19:04

So when a person learns about something, and he does not change his ways, then what will happen, his heart will become hard.

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

We also learn from this I have the chip on he adorns the sense for who

00:19:12--> 00:19:21

for us. Because they and Allahumma shavon shavon beautifies since for us, and because we like them so much, we don't want to leave them.

00:19:23--> 00:19:49

We love those things. We love doing those things. We don't want to leave them. For instance, a person thinks it's so cool to say bad words are swear words when you're in a difficult situation. For example, if you trip or something, it's so cool to say a swear word. Everybody says that. And it shows that you know you're so angry and you can say whatever and you can do whatever it is what people think, especially our younger people, and not just our younger people, even our older people.

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

I mean, is it really worth cursing? Think about it. Is it really worth dirtying your tongue? Just because you tripped just because you hit your hand somewhere just because

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

at you and your swearing, this is shavon who has adoring the sin for us. We also don't miss either when a person is overcome by shaitaan

00:20:09--> 00:20:15

then he sees bad as good. And he sees good as bad

00:20:17--> 00:20:24

because they in in a humorous shape automechanika Yamato, how come for them, these deeds are very beautiful.

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

But for other people, these deeds are very filthy.

00:20:30--> 00:20:59

What's the reason? Because Japan has completely influenced them. When a person is under the influence of shape line and he sees bad as good and he sees good as bad. So if you see yourself liking something that is bad, or disliking something that is good, then seek refuge with ALLAH against the shaitan if you see yourself liking something that is bad, and disliking something that is good than seek refuge with a law against the shavon

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

because certainly, Chevron has influenced such a person.

00:21:06--> 00:21:17

fellow man asuma Dooku be so when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, who who does they refer to the people to whom the messengers were sent.

00:21:18--> 00:21:22

And when they denied Allah subhanaw taala sent difficulties upon them.

00:21:23--> 00:21:36

But they did not change. So Allah subhanaw taala says fella, man, so when they completely forgot my looky loo baby, that with which they were reminded, meaning the teachings of the messengers

00:21:37--> 00:21:44

when the messengers came reminded them, dock them, admonish them warn them, they completely forgot about it.

00:21:45--> 00:21:52

What does that mean, over here, that they didn't care less, they became completely negligent.

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

The messenger told them if you don't believe there are severe consequences.

00:21:58--> 00:22:04

They provided I know, it's not gonna happen completely negligent, anyone think about it. Then what happened?

00:22:06--> 00:22:16

further, I lay him above wherever condition, we open, the door is upon them of everything, of whoever is the plural of that. What does the door do?

00:22:17--> 00:22:21

It closes that it locks that what is inside, or who is inside.

00:22:23--> 00:22:27

Once the door is open, then whatever is inside can come out.

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

And if the door is shut, then whatever is inside cannot come out.

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

And it's not just with rooms with buildings, but even with dance.

00:22:38--> 00:23:14

So further, above Water Conditioning, we open the doors have everything for them. What does it mean by this? Meaning we sent upon them all kinds of blessings, condition, everything. We sent upon them all kinds of blessings, the doors of everything, we're open for them, every blessing of this world was given to them, it was made abundant for them because further knowledge of web does matter. The door is open, if the dam has been opened up, and the water is gushing, coming out, flowing up continuously, constantly.

00:23:16--> 00:23:27

So this is how the blessings were coming upon them one after the other, and in abundance, continuously and abundantly. This is how the blessings are coming upon them.

00:23:29--> 00:23:37

Secondly, for the name of Weber condition, a condition over here means all those things that they were deprived of before why

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

as the minor punishments were being sent upon them.

00:23:41--> 00:23:53

So for example, the people of Iran what happened with them, they suffered from famine. So when there was having no rain, no food, so the vibe of rain, the vibe of food was closed upon them.

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

So what does Allah subhanaw taala say over here,

00:23:59--> 00:24:17

that Allah subhanaw taala open the gates, open the doors of all those things which had been previously withheld from them, because of the minor punishment that had been sent upon them. had that until either funny who, when they became very happy

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

when they became delighted,

00:24:21--> 00:24:36

for who has you know for is to be happy, but it also gives a sense of being boastful being proud. So when they became very exalted when they became very happy about what Bheema oh do about that which they had been given

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

100 Now we seize them,

00:24:40--> 00:24:45

meaning we inflicted the punishment upon them. How vultan suddenly,

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

unexpectedly without any warning,

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

because all of a sudden things have become fine. And now, a loss of pounds Allison's a punishment upon them. They weren't even expecting it. They weren't even thinking about

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Without everything was fine

00:25:02--> 00:25:13

for either home mobility soon then at once they became those who were despair. Mobile as soon as a Florida mobile is and boobless is one who is suffering from a bless.

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

And what is it less hopelessness.

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

When a person has completely despaired, of being saved,

00:25:24--> 00:25:27

when a person has completely despaired of any good.

00:25:29--> 00:25:36

It is also said that mobilus is one who is made speechless, because of grief or despair.

00:25:37--> 00:25:51

mobilus is one who has been made speechless a second, these are silent, he's his quiet, I will tell you, he's amazed, he is bewildered, he is dumbfounded. He doesn't know what's going on. And he's given up all hope

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

for either mobilization, meaning the disparate from every kind of good thing.

00:25:57--> 00:26:07

It doesn't mean that they became humbled to Allah. But rather it means that they became completely disappointed. They went in depression, because they never thought that these blessings would be taken away from them.

00:26:09--> 00:26:24

And if you think of it, if you have a condition, they were being given so many blessings in abundance one after the other. When a person is in such a situation, Does he ever think that his blessings are going to be taken away from him? Ever?

00:26:26--> 00:26:31

that a person has such a healthy body can even think that he will develop a disease all of a sudden?

00:26:33--> 00:26:41

Sometimes when people develop a disease all of a sudden, and they're told about it, they're shocked. Like, I never expected it, I never thought about it.

00:26:42--> 00:26:57

For instance, if a particular disease in the family of a person gets it is okay. He's like, Yes, I was expecting it. I'm not shocked. But if it's nowhere in the family, there is no past history that shows that maybe that person could develop that disease, all of a sudden when he gets it.

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

It's very shocking, because he never thought he could ever develop it.

00:27:03--> 00:27:21

Similarly, when a person, you know, has children who are very nice, very good towards him, and all of a sudden, they become disloyal, they betray Him, they leave him they abandon him, he'd never expected that. He never thought of that. And all of a sudden, everything flipped.

00:27:22--> 00:27:28

So what should be done in this situation? Should a person turn to a lawyer should a person become hopeless?

00:27:30--> 00:27:31

He should turn to Allah.

00:27:32--> 00:27:39

hopeless or disappointed or depressed, is the person who is not humbled before and also

00:27:41--> 00:27:48

because a person who trusts Allah, a person who believes in Allah, then no matter what he goes through, he does not become depressed.

00:27:49--> 00:27:54

Remember, a believer, a true believer, he cannot suffer from depression.

00:27:55--> 00:28:05

He cannot tell from depression. Because he knows that whatever is happening to him, is coming to him from Allah. This is what Allah allowed to happen. This is what Allah willed

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

and there is some wisdom behind it for either Moberly, soon a believer does not become mobilus

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

what do we learn from this ayah?

00:28:15--> 00:28:32

First of all, we learned that Allah subhanaw taala sends punishment gradually, that Allah subhanaw taala sends punishment, how gradually he doesn't send it immediately. If you look at it, all of these is that we have studied this far, that Allah sends messengers that people don't believe 100 100% water while or Lumia.

00:28:34--> 00:28:50

If they don't become humble, then what happens? What happens? Then Allah subhanaw taala sense, minor punishment, then what happens if they don't become humble? Are they punished immediately? No, Allah subhanaw taala increases the blessings upon them.

00:28:51--> 00:29:05

He increases the blessings upon them Why? So that they think that everything is fine, we don't need to change. If we were wrong, then we would not be in the situation.

00:29:06--> 00:29:12

And this is a big fitna a big trial, a big test,

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

that when a person is experiencing something good, he realizes that this also is a test.

00:29:19--> 00:29:25

So what do we learn that Allah subhanaw taala center of pullback he sends punishment through is to draw meaning gradually.

00:29:27--> 00:29:33

We also learn from the side that a person is tested through good and bad times.

00:29:35--> 00:29:44

You see, blessings are a test. Having blessings is a test. And at the same time not having blessings is also a test.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

in both situations, a person is being tested. Never should a person think now I am fine. No, every moment every situation every stage of life is a test.

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

When you had something you were being tested, when you didn't have it, you were being tested when you had it again, again, you were being tested.

00:30:08--> 00:30:17

Not even for a moment is a person out there a test each and every second is being tested. Held is a test, sicknesses a test.

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

Wealth is a test, barbarities a test.

00:30:21--> 00:30:24

Happiness is a test. Sadness is a test.

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

good relationships are a test. And bad relationships are also a test.

00:30:32--> 00:30:41

What do we learn sort of MBI 35 that could lunasin that you've got to remote, whenever you can be assured we will highly fit within

00:30:42--> 00:30:49

that every soul is going to change that. And we test you with evil, and with good as what as a trial,

00:30:51--> 00:30:55

has anonymously said that whoever Allah gives provision.

00:30:56--> 00:30:59

And he thinks that Allah is not testing you,

00:31:00--> 00:31:11

then such a person has no wisdom, and whoever has little provision, and he thinks that Allah will not look at him, meaning he will not provide for him. Even he does not have any wisdom.

00:31:13--> 00:31:27

So basically, in every situation, a person has been tested. When a believer when he has something, he is grateful, when he doesn't have something, he is patient, he is hopeful, he does not become depressed.

00:31:28--> 00:31:37

Depression. And despairing is something that a non believer goes through, it does not suit a believer. Therefore a believer should ever say I'm so disappointed.

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

He can ever be disappointed with the decree of Allah. Never.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

We also learn from this ayah

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

that a person should fear the punishment of our last panel data, when the matters of this life are made easy for him.

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

When life becomes easy, when things become very convenient,

00:32:02--> 00:32:29

life becomes very convenient. Things become very accessible to him, then he should be fearful that perhaps, perhaps this is a kind of punishment upon me. That maybe a loss of power that has given me rest bite, maybe I did something wrong. I didn't realize my mistake. And now our last panel data has made this dunya so easy for me. And then he's going to call me to account then he's going to catch me all of a sudden,

00:32:30--> 00:32:42

never even for a moment should a person think when he's going through good times, that everything is fine. And he doesn't need to do anything. No, a person should always remain between fear and hope.

00:32:43--> 00:32:56

This doesn't mean that if a person has some blessings, he should be negative. No, he should thank Allah subhanaw taala. But the meaning is that even in good times, a person should remain between fear and hope.

00:32:57--> 00:33:05

He should not think that Oh, everything is fine. I don't need to fear a loss of hazardous punishment anymore. If I was wrong, that Allah subhanaw taala would not have facilitated this for me, no.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

always remain between fear and hope.

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

This is why the setup would say that when you see someone with his life made easy for him that know that he is being tested, they know that he is going to be punished very soon.

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

He is being given his to the Raj, he's been given rest, fight for punishment when you know that someone is living a life of ease.

00:33:27--> 00:33:35

When you see that somebody was in a lot of difficult situation, now everything is fine for him. It's perhaps leading him to a greater punishment.

00:33:36--> 00:33:44

Now it doesn't mean that every person who is enjoying some blessing he is being led to punishment. No, that's not what the meaning is. We shouldn't generalize.

00:33:45--> 00:33:52

But the meaning is that we should remain in fear. Even when we're going through ease. Even when everything is fine for us.

00:33:54--> 00:34:09

If you have a car that always works for you, if you have a nice house, if you have money, if you have everything that you want, everything is fine for you know that that too is a test. That do is it as this dunya is not reward. Reward isn't the hero.

00:34:10--> 00:34:45

We also have to miss either the one in whose hands is the ability to give ease. And the ability to give difficulty is almost pengelolaan he is the only one in whose control in whose hand is both raha and uship the meaning ease and difficulty. We also learn from this ayah about severe warning against being overly happy against being boastful and arrogant. When a person is given some blessings of this world.

00:34:46--> 00:34:52

A true believer will never ever be boastful and arrogant when he's given blessings.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

rather he will become more humble before Allah. He will use those blessings to worship a lot more to thank Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

To help the people of Allah, and a person who is just enjoying his blessings himself, and he doesn't think about others, that definitely, that is a source of punishment for him.

00:35:11--> 00:35:19

We also learn from this ayah that punishment, it comes to a person without warning, without any warning, when he's fully engrossed in Listen,

00:35:20--> 00:35:27

fully engrossed in this and it could be an accident, it could be a sudden death, it could be some disease, some illness,

00:35:28--> 00:35:33

but punishment comes to a person, but suddenly

00:35:35--> 00:36:17

faculty are, so it was cut off, what was cut off there bureau comm meaning the root of the people. So in other words, the people, they were completely eliminated, which people are loving, and those who committed wrong with hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. And praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds baltierra from the roof letters of Bahrain, and Qatar is to get something to sever something. And Debbie is from the refactors Del Oro. And then it is the root, or the extremity of something.

00:36:18--> 00:36:23

The end part of something from the same roof is a word the word which is used for the back, the rear and

00:36:24--> 00:36:32

so that is the end of something, the root of something, the extremity of something.

00:36:34--> 00:36:40

It is said author, Deborah Shea, meaning he destroyed that thing completely he annihilated it.

00:36:42--> 00:36:47

For example, if there is a weed and you wish to finish it off, what are you going to do?

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

You're going to pull it out from its root.

00:36:52--> 00:37:00

When you pull it out from its root, what does it mean? It's completely finished. If you leave the root, even a little bit, what's going to happen, it's going to come back again.

00:37:01--> 00:37:26

So for kotera Dev, it'll count What does it mean that the entire people, entire people, entire nation was wiped off? Not even one of them. Not even one of them was left for potier, their little COVID, Latina varnamo 100, a layer of mineral amine and all praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds. Why is this mentioned over here?

00:37:27--> 00:37:41

Because he eliminated Who? Those people who did so this is why he deserves hand over here. Because it shows the complete justice of Allah, that those people who do learn those people who are unjust, who are oppressive,

00:37:42--> 00:37:57

who are negligent, who don't give the rights of others. If Allah subhanaw taala punishes them. If Allah wipes them off, what does it show? His justice? His justice, therefore Alhamdulillah Hello, Blimey.

00:37:58--> 00:38:00

So what do we learn from this ayah?

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

First of all, we learned that

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

injustice, oppressing others,

00:38:07--> 00:38:25

whether it means oppressing, meaning being unjust towards Allah, or being unjust towards the messenger being unjust towards the people being unjust towards the creation. injustice is a cause of Cuba. It is a cause of punishment, meaning it brings the punishment of Allah upon the person.

00:38:26--> 00:38:40

And if a person is not given punishment in the dunya, definitely he'll be punished for it in the accident. What do we learn from the Hadees that a little more roomette Yama, Yama, enjoy injustice will be darknesses on the Day of Judgment.

00:38:42--> 00:38:51

Secondly, we also learn from this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala is Mahmoud, being is praiseworthy, over destroying the learning,

00:38:52--> 00:39:13

destroying Who? The one who is unjust, he is mahonia is praiseworthy, forgiving blessings, and also for taking away that which is harmful. So we shouldn't just thank Allah, we shouldn't just praise Him when we are given a blessing. But we should also praise and thank him when some difficulty is removed from us.

00:39:14--> 00:39:20

Like sometimes, let's say you go to eat somewhere you really enjoy the food, what happens at the end, you say?

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

That was a really nice meal.

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

So you're saying I'm hamdulillah? When

00:39:27--> 00:39:28

when you are given a blessing,

00:39:29--> 00:39:32

but when something harmful is taken away from you,

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

then even at that time, what should you say?

00:39:36--> 00:39:40

Like for example, the person had some loan he had to pay it off when it's done. What should he say?

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

All praises to Allah.

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

That's listen to the recitation of these ayah

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

in

00:40:08--> 00:40:11

For the

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

sooner,

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

boo,

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

boo boo,

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

boo.

00:42:09--> 00:42:31

Well, my point is that nobody else really Mashallah is actually saying that how she remembered that I have under the name for punakha so far from Dora. And it shows like even at times of difficulties and even good times that they still spend. So it shows how important is for you to be humbled both ways, you know when difficulty happens to you, and when good things happen to you, I'll usually neglect that part.

00:42:32--> 00:42:49

Because in both situations a person is being tested. And if in difficulty, a person despairs, and if in good times a person becomes arrogant, then he has certainly failed the test. And if in a good situation, a person thinks, Oh, this is for me, I don't have to share this with other people.

00:42:51--> 00:43:00

If in bad times, a person thinks, oh, I am the most needy, I don't have to share with other people, then again, he's not being grateful for the best things, he's certainly not passing the test.

00:43:04--> 00:43:30

Just going back to the cures of when you feel like a heart hurts, like even though like we're here, now we're sitting in the corner. You know, when we go out into the real world, I guess not the world, like, situations come to you. And they come so fast, and you don't really remember all that I like right away. So I guess in those moments, it really makes a difference if you just grab the hot hand and just read a suit or start reading a sort of that we've learned and it makes a difference to your heart.

00:43:31--> 00:43:37

Which is why it's so important to read the clown even outside of the class, even outside of homework.

00:43:40--> 00:44:16

So Hanukkah, I was just really thinking about like how some people to give up on a lot. They say, you know what, if we're gonna make the analyst not gonna answer us, then there's no use in making that. But I remember like once a week, right, he was telling us a story about how when his wife, she gave birth to their daughter that she had a very bad heart disease, and she could have died. And he said he was an atheist. And he said, he didn't believe in God. But so he went to the prayer and he said, Oh, God, if you're there, then help me in the situation. And then I will follow and I will believe in you. And then later on, he went back to find out, then he went, and then all the doctors

00:44:16--> 00:44:42

that were surrounding his daughter, they had this look of amazement on their face. And then he asked them and they said, Oh, you know what? Your daughter, it's like, the disease wasn't even there at all. She's completely cured. She's perfectly fine. And then he says, like, now that he's a Muslim, he said that he talks to many Muslims. And when he hears them say that he says, You know what, you never know if I look in Spanish, I can answer the app for someone who's an atheist, then you as a Muslim, what do you think?

00:44:46--> 00:44:55

I think also it's a mercy of Allah that He gave us him to hand so that we can go back to him. Can you imagine if we didn't have him to handle you know, forget Allah. Exactly.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Thank you.

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

Just thinking back to the eyes where there was it says that we're supposed to become humble when you're going through problems. And I just remember this really good quote that I saw on Facebook once. And I said that, um, when the world pushes you down to the floor on your feet, we're in a perfect position to pray into such that

00:45:19--> 00:45:40

was just thinking that nowadays, everyone complains of some kind of stress, depression. And it shows that Allah is testing all of us either one in a literal way or more way. But what is the solution what Allah wants us, either Well, I can pass up calm, turns more words, or what Allah Allah what was

00:45:41--> 00:46:08

wrong, this is a thing with a loved ones from us. And we see the example from the story of brown. He was the one whose heart was Worsley, in turn, talk and in his own palace was his wife as he was being tested to, to the buzzer. WebDriver. But what Allah, Allah wanted to raise in that regard, as well. So all of this being tested, we need to know, what is our, what we choose for ourselves.

00:46:09--> 00:46:32

Thank God, I was just thinking, when we learn is we always just talk, we just say, oh, we're gonna change, you're gonna do this, but we don't actually do actions. So I was just thinking to myself, what can I do right now that I can change, I was like, Okay, let me go back to everything that I learned, take even three items every single day, like in the morning after surgery, take three items, learn it, and say, I'm going to implement these three times in my life and just see how that works out.

00:46:33--> 00:46:35

And we can set a goal for yourself.

00:46:37--> 00:47:19

Sonico I was just thinking about this, add that when you said that, if we didn't implement what we learned, our heart is gonna be hard. And Subhanallah like I have experienced this, like when I was back home, you know, I was going higher. And then every time you hear the hell are you listening this you will listen that at the beginning, it just gives you this like, you feel so in peace and you like it and you always want to go to that place. But later on, you start to have this arrogance that Oh, I know that and I know this, and then you don't know what's wrong with you. what's what's going on with me? How come I'm not feeling the way I used to feel before. And then similarly now,

00:47:19--> 00:47:25

like, we're learning a lot of if, and then if we just ignore it and ignore it sooner or later.

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

So

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

the right time at the right time.

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

Let's listen to the recitation of these

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

is the

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

belly
