I was going to shift on average investment for him.

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

Lesson number 88. So little era, I am number one to 25

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

sort of era is Mr. kiesler.

00:00:16--> 00:00:29

And it was revealed before sootel anon SoTL anon was the last hurrah to be revealed in the murkier. But Sora era was revealed before that.

00:00:30--> 00:00:34

And it is that that sort of era was revealed after pseudopod

00:00:35--> 00:00:58

sort of that is the longest of all murky souls. It's the longest of all murky souls, which is the longest surah of the Quran Surah tillbaka, which is longest Madani Surah Surah Baqarah and the longest Maki Surah Surah tilava. Animals according to some it is the twin of skeletal and arm

00:00:59--> 00:01:14

as sort of Baccarat suited earlier and won both of them are twins. Similarly, this one is between off surana. And this one, it contains 206 iron. So it's the longest of machimura, as I mentioned to you.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

In some ways, the suta is very similar to sort of tobacco.

00:01:19--> 00:01:32

In some ways, it is very similar to similar tobacco with regards to its themes, such as both begin with Harold macatawa. Both have in them, the story of Adam and his center. So it's similar to sort of tobacco.

00:01:33--> 00:02:14

It is often said that this sort of was revealed towards the end of the murky period, meaning it wasn't a real towards the beginning, it was revealed towards the end. And remember, that was the time when the opposition of the machine had increased severely against the profit sort of Arsenal as well as the Muslims, they were very actively involved in opposing and harming the Muslims. So, we will look at many if in which the prophets are a lot of sentiments being comforted that he should not worry, examples are given. And he is given confidence that he should convey the message without any fear, the word are off is the Florida of Earth, an Earth is used for height.

00:02:15--> 00:02:46

Any place that is elevated, such as a mount a small hill, that is called Earth from the same root, or over foot deep is the Cox code of a rooster. So you may have seen on a rooster and a chicken, there's, you know, like a red flesh that is protruding out of the head and under the beak. So that is also called the roof. Why? Because it's protruding out sticking them. So roof is anything that is elevated, anything that is high above the rest of what is around it.

00:02:48--> 00:03:05

And the soda is called off because of the mention of our off in it. What is our above it's the highest elevated place between gender and gender, where some people will be on the Day of Judgment for some time until either their center done, or they're sent elsewhere.

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and inflamm meme saw

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

her with macatawa which are the disjointed letters there to be read separately. They're not to be connected together.

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

There has been a lot of speculation, a lot of opinions with regards to the meaning of mahkota

00:03:29--> 00:03:41

but nobody can say for sure that yes, this is the precise meaning of these hurdles. Why? Because there is no evidence for it in the Quran and Sunnah. So how do we understand it, that they display the miraculous nature of the Quran

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

that these are the proof that you are people use as well.

00:03:47--> 00:04:35

However, you cannot come up with something like the Quran. The Quran cannot be imitated by any any Flan meme site. And remember, that most of the time that these rules appear at the beginning of the source, what happens right after an ayah is mentioned which elevates the status of the Quran, which praises the Quran in some way or the other. Over here, what is the last penalty let's say kita bone burn a book, meaning this is a book. This four iron is a key tab, and this key tab on Zilla alayka it has been revealed to you or prophets that allow her to send them meaning Allah has chosen you for the Quran. There are so many people in the world, so many people in your city, so many people who

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

may be more rich than you more prosperous than you. However Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you kita Juan de la alayka it has been revealed to you falaya confused South Africa Hello June. So let there not be in your heart, any distress in your heart. There should be no distress whatsoever leetonia OBE so that you can warn through

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

This foreign what they call book meaning, and it is a reminder for the believers

00:05:06--> 00:05:15

over here loss of power without access to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that this book has been given to you, you have been chosen to be the messenger to convey this book to the people.

00:05:16--> 00:05:41

Since you have been chosen, your job is to convey. Now in order to convey, you must not have any hemorrhage in your heart. Because if you have any hemorrhage in your heart, you will not be able to do your job properly. Now, the question is, what does Howard mean? The word heritage is from the veterans held RG and we have done this word earlier is when

00:05:42--> 00:05:49

that whoever Allah wishes to lead astray, then what happens? his heart he finds hydrogen is art, there's constriction.

00:05:50--> 00:06:12

So how it literally is used for such a shrub or such a plant or such a tree, which is surrounded by other trees, so that it cannot be accessed, no one can reach it, no animal can reach it, no person can reach it, a stick cannot reach it nothing. It's completely surrounded. It's in the midst. This is what Howard literally is.

00:06:14--> 00:06:25

And from this, the word How does use for such discomfort and uneasiness of the heart because of which nothing goes into a person's heart. And he's unable to express anything either.

00:06:26--> 00:06:39

Sometimes you feel so uncomfortable, you feel so uneasy, that no matter what advice other people give you, are you willing to take it? No. Why? Because of the discomfort of your heart.

00:06:40--> 00:07:10

And at the same time, you cannot even explain yourself. Doesn't it happen? Sometimes? You're in such a situation that people are advising you people are telling you, the doctor is recommending you. But should I know I cannot do this. And like Why? I cannot explain myself. I just know I can't do it. This is what how large is that your heart is surrounded by confusion or you can say uneasiness or discomfort with something that nothing goes into your heart and you're unable to express yourself either.

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

So the word how much as a result is used for two things. First of all, it is used for shuck doubt.

00:07:18--> 00:07:38

Because what does that do? It makes a person uncomfortable with regards to something. For example, the doctor tells you you need a surgery for such and such problem that you're suffering from. But you're doubtful if that surgery is gonna work. People tell you do it, you're like no, why I can't explain this check doubt.

00:07:40--> 00:07:57

Secondly, hemorrhage also applies to weak meaning constriction and anguish and uneasiness of the heart. And otherwise the word highlight is also used for sin. Why? Because sin causes distress to a person

00:07:59--> 00:08:07

over here loss apprentices there should be no hemorrhage in your heart Minho from it. Then what does Khalid refer to in the context?

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

First of all doubt, you should have no doubt men who? What does manual refer to?

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

Meaning concerning the Quran about

00:08:21--> 00:09:10

what happens when you're trying to say something? That is right. And you know, it's right, but everybody's opposing you? Do you begin to doubt yourself? Do you? Yes. Which is why eventually people start something. And because everybody's opposing them eventually believe it. Why? Because it begins with doubting about the certainty of what you're doing, or what you're saying, because of extreme opposition. So you should not be in any doubt we learned in sort of Bukhara I 147 and hakomi, Rob Baker fella takuna, nominal monetary. The truth is from your Lord, so you should not be of those who doubt. Don't be in any doubt about meaning, be confident, be 100% Sure. You should not

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

be in any doubt. Because if you're doubtful, then you cannot convey

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

isn't at all.

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

If you're doubtful about something can you convey? No. Can you convince the other no?

00:09:24--> 00:09:44

Secondly, how much in the context refers to distress? hesitation? Them striction meaning there should be no constriction or tightness in your heart. Men who, because of it because of what because of the fear of denial, because of the fear of tech lead.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

When you fear that people are not going to accept what you're going to tell them are you able to convey or you know, if you know that if you suggest something to your sister, or to your mother or to your husband

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

And you know, they're not going to accept Are you going to be able to convey? No, you won't be able to talk about it at all.

00:10:08--> 00:10:28

So that causes constriction, this constriction because of the fear of denial. It should not stop you falaya confused Federica Hara Joon Minh who there should be no constriction in your heart because of it leeton there are so that you want the heat through it through what?

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

Through the Quran.

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

Now, what is it mean by this little little bitty so that you can warn by it.

00:10:37--> 00:10:55

Later on, there'll be V has been understood in two ways. First of all, this is the reason behind not having any knowledge. Because Allah subhanaw taala says filaria confusa darica halogen, there should be no halogen your heart. Why? So that you can warn by the Quran

00:10:56--> 00:11:11

there should be no constriction, uneasiness doubt in your heart, so that you can convey the message because if there is any uneasiness, if there's any doubt, if there's any discomfort, you will not be able to convey.

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

So remove all how to trim your heart.

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

Secondly, it is at that little neuron This is connected with Keita will only read

00:11:22--> 00:11:40

a book that has been revealed to you meaning you have been chosen for this book, the book has been given to you. Why so that you warn people by it not to that you just keep it with yourself? No. Your responsibility is that you have to warn people through this

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

who which people those people who deny those people who don't believe

00:11:48--> 00:11:58

we learned in select Mario I remember 97 for innama yourself now will be the sanika little bashira 13 what Tony Robbins

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

what Tony Robbie Omen Luda.

00:12:05--> 00:12:14

So Prophet sallallahu wasallam. We have made the Quran easy for you so that you can give the good news to who do those people who have Taqwa

00:12:15--> 00:12:20

and so that you can warn through this Quran who are people who are hostile?

00:12:21--> 00:12:25

Or people who are not listening who are not willing to accept.

00:12:26--> 00:13:12

So little Dharavi. Who are you supposed to warn with this are on those people who are denying? Because they need warning? Generally what happens? Somebody who denies you? What do we think? I don't need to tell them anymore. They're not willing to accept. But what does Allah say? You have to warn them they need a warning. So that they will believe. Similarly, we learned Ancelotti, I seen it number six letendre, calm a man on the moon, for whom are feeling that you may want a people whose forefathers have not been warned. So they are unaware. So therefore you have to warn them. So the Quran is first of all, a warning for who? For those people who deny. Secondly, was it crawling

00:13:12--> 00:13:18

meaning and it is a reminder for those people who believe notice the word, the claw.

00:13:19--> 00:13:32

The claw is different from the what is the acronym to remember. One reminder, that's it. But the claw is to remind repeatedly to remind over and over again.

00:13:33--> 00:14:16

And it's used for a beneficial reminder, and effective reminder that benefits the receiver. So this is to warn those who disbelieve and at the same time, it is a reminder for who for those people who believe in this book, inserted that yet I number 55 we learn with a kid for in decorah 10 for me remind Why? Because the reminder benefits the believers, the reminder, what does it do? It benefits the believers. So how come the Quran is a reminder for the believers? Because they already believe they already believe and whatever they're being told in the Quran, it's a reminder for them.

00:14:18--> 00:14:30

For instance, when a person becomes a Muslim, he knows he has to pray. But in the Quran when he learns that it's not just that you're supposed to pray, but your karma to say that is necessary, then that serves as a reminder for him.

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

Whether you call him what many

00:14:34--> 00:14:40

of you see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he would receive revelation, what would you do? Remember, this is my key period.

00:14:41--> 00:14:55

He would recite it to the people. He would go to the huddle, he would recite to the people. Some people will be passing by they will come and listen. Others would start mocking. So whenever he would recite the code under the people, there were two types of reactions.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

One was of those people who were interested those

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

People who were already believers, they would come, they would listen, they would accept, they would receive the reminder from the Quran.

00:15:09--> 00:15:18

And on the other hand, there were those people who denied or rejected, they would object. They made fun, they laughed, and they went away.

00:15:19--> 00:15:46

And when they wouldn't believe they would become extremely stubborn, demanding miracles on the profits out of out of someone, asking him to bring the Day of Judgment, criticizing the ayat, mocking at the content of the ayah. This is what they would do. There were two complete different reactions. And this reaction of the machine in particular, of their mockery, their denial, their criticism, it was obviously something very difficult for the profit side, a lot of them to bear.

00:15:48--> 00:16:13

And it's something very natural. Just imagine you're telling somebody about something, and they are openly mocking YouTube. They're openly rejecting you, they're openly deny you. Now you might say, Why did he go and recite the Quran to them? Because he did not have a choice with regards to selecting his audience. What do we do? If we know that a particular person is not going to listen to us, we don't even go talk to them.

00:16:14--> 00:16:32

If we know that this person is very argumentative, we don't even bother arguing with them. We don't even bother trying to convince them, isn't it. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not have that choice. He wasn't given that choice. He was supposed to convey the Quran to everyone, whether they listen, or they did not listen.

00:16:34--> 00:16:46

And when you convey to someone who wants to listen, what happens? He takes benefit, he takes advantage, his heart opens up. And it's easier for you to convey.

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

You know, when you're talking to someone, and they're accepting what you're saying, they're agreeing with you, it's easier for you to speak to them.

00:16:54--> 00:17:35

But if you're talking to someone who's as cold as a wall is not responsive at all, or if your response, whatever you're saying, is bounces back on up objects, then are you willing to talk to them anymore? No. Even if you want to talk, it's very difficult for you to express yourself very difficult. You have to be extremely confident, which is why many people they don't like to debate. Why? Because they don't have the confidence of speaking out in public or they don't have the confidence of taking any criticism in public, defending themselves in public. You have to have a lot of courage to be able to do that. And the prophets, Allah Harrison was put in this situation almost

00:17:35--> 00:17:42

every single day that he had to go recite the Quran to the people, and people would outright deny him and oppose him.

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

And remember, that constant denial. What does it lead you to? It leads you to doubting yourself.

00:17:51--> 00:17:55

Constant rejection, it makes you doubt yourself.

00:17:56--> 00:18:25

So the profits are a lot of cinemas being consoled over here that our profits are low, the sudden you have been chosen. You have been selected. The Quran has been given to you. And this is your responsibility. Now. You have to convey the Quran to other people. And in order to convey he should have no doubt and you should have no hesitation in your heart. Rather you should be 100% confident because if you're not confident you will not be able to do your job.

00:18:26--> 00:18:44

We are in solitude I am number 11. Further aleca terracon Barack Obama you have a Laker although it can be subtle Luca Enya kulu Lola en de la Renta you can zone Olga Amar who Monique intimate antenna Dion Allah Allah condition in workI.

00:18:46--> 00:18:49

Then what you possibly leave out some of what is revealed to you?

00:18:50--> 00:19:03

Or is your breast constrained by it? Because they say, Why has there not been sent down to him a treasure or come with him and Angel, but you're only a whiner. And Allah is disposal of all things.

00:19:04--> 00:19:22

So just imagine you're talking to someone and you can see denial on their face. And you know that the next thing they're going to utter is going to be a statement of rejection. How would you feel naturally you would feel discouraged. Naturally you would become doubtful. Naturally you would feel some hesitation.

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

So this stage that the prophet SAW a lot of someone was going through was something very natural.

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

So he is being comforted over here that keep doing what you're supposed to do.

00:19:34--> 00:19:52

We know while aka the Netherland Anika de casa de Luca vinaya Kowloon totally legit I number 97 that we know that your breast is constrained because of what they say. We know very well, what you're going through what you're experiencing, but you have to do it. You have to do it.

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

And in order to do it properly, you have to eliminate this habit from your heart. You have to be

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

Be courageous, you have to be confident, otherwise you cannot do your job.

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

What have you learned from this is

00:20:07--> 00:20:19

that when a person begins his journey with the Quran, whether it is learning, or it is teaching in any way, then definitely you will face opposition. Or there will be at least this fear of opposition.

00:20:20--> 00:20:31

Or because of everybody being against the Quran or everybody being against the deen, what happens? You begin to doubt yourself, should I really say this or not? Should I really do this or not?

00:20:32--> 00:20:43

But what does Allah subhanaw taala say, there should be no hemorrhage in your heart, because if you entertain any how much you cannot do your job properly, you will not be able to speak you will not be able to convey

00:20:44--> 00:21:02

and why is it that people alter the deen or water down to the Why? Just so that it is more acceptable to the people. Whereas if you change it to make it acceptable to the people, then that defeats the purpose completely. Because how are you warning them? If you're telling him or you're fine? That's not warning.

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

What else have you learned from the side?

00:21:07--> 00:21:29

That in life, you have to take risks, you are going to face some difficulties, some challenges. Now just because of the fear of those challenges, just because of the fear of those difficulties. Don't just sit back and do nothing. Don't just sit back and do nothing. You have to go ahead and do it. Many times when we're doing our what do we think? whatever they're not going to believe?

00:21:30--> 00:22:08

They're not going to believe? Of course they're not. That's why they're like this. Why should I even tell them? Why should I go and humiliate myself? Why should go in and tell myself when I know they're not going to believe? You know, take that risk? speak to them? What will they say? Really at all? What are they going to say? The No thank you. I don't want to listen to what you're saying. Fine. But at least you've done your job. At least you won't have that guilt afterwards. Because it's either guilt before or there's guilt after. Right. So at least convey the message. So you are guilt free. Take the risk. And it's not just an hour, but other things in life as well. You have to take

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

risks, because if you don't, you will not be able to be successful.

00:22:13--> 00:22:32

One of the reasons behind the constriction and the unevenness of the heart is if we ourselves don't have a strong knowledge base. If we're not confident about what we are conveying, if you're not 100% Sure. Because then you cannot defend yourself, you cannot prove yourself to the other.

00:22:33--> 00:22:38

If you have a strong knowledge base, if you're confident about what you believe in, then you can convey easily

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

then other people's rejection and their denial is not going to shake you is now going to make you doubtful.

00:22:45--> 00:23:04

As believers we also need what constant reminders in the mean. Because look where they crawl and where do you get this call from? From the Quran. Peter will own Zilla alayka, out of all the people of the world. Out of all the people of Morocco, who was chosen.

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was chosen to be the recipient of the Quran.

00:23:10--> 00:23:20

And now amongst so many people who have been chosen to learn the Quran to study the Quran, so why should you be uneasy in your heart? Why should you be uncomfortable? Allah has chosen this for you.

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

So accept it, and do what you're supposed to do.

00:23:25--> 00:23:48

If you look at it to Michigan, they were involved in check. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was supposed to convey the message of their heads to them. completely opposite, completely different. And when you're telling somebody that all that you've been doing since many years is wrong, it's very difficult, that creates Harvard in your heart. But alasa panel data controls the profit sort of loaded sort of over here.

00:23:50--> 00:23:59

And remember, that when a person conveys, yes, there are people who will reject, but you never know. There are also people who will accept, you never know.

00:24:01--> 00:24:16

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did this throughout his day in Makkah that he continued to recite the Quran in public, to people so that you never know somebody or the other might believe. And there were so many Sahaba so many companions who believed just by listening to the Quran,

00:24:17--> 00:24:31

just by listening to the Quran. Now, just out of fear of rejection, if you don't read, then those who are going to benefit won't be able to benefit, they won't be able to accept. So why should you compromise on them out of fear of the other people who will deny

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

our problem is that we'll become extremely judgmental. We look at the other person. And maybe he doesn't smile at us or she doesn't smile at us. And we're like, okay, I can't even talk to her. But it's possible that when you start talking to her, she listens to you. She's very willing to listen to what you have to say. Maybe you have the answers to her questions. But just because she didn't smile at you just because she's dressed up in a particular way. You won't even go look at her. You won't even go talk to her. No

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

speak to them. You never know what hair there isn't the other person.

00:25:06--> 00:25:46

Interview all of you follow my own Zilla la comilla become what has been revealed to you from your Lord. This addresses to all people, Allah subhanaw taala addresses mankind directly, that follow my own data in a common law become what has been revealed to you from your Lord, meaning the Quran while at a taboo, and do not follow men dooney besides Him, meaning besides Allah, or besides it, meaning the Quran, don't follow besides him only other leaders, other allies, other protectors, don't follow them. Rather, you should follow only a loss penalty.

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

What does it mean by this? Well, at the VA room in dooney, Odia, who does the only act referred to

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

only over here refers to the leaders of other codes of conduct, other religions, or the followers of other faiths? Don't follow them.

00:26:05--> 00:26:31

Because remember, Wiley, who is a close friend. So the one of the religions who have a code of conduct is to have an ideology is who it's following. Its believer, or he has some authority in there. So don't follow others, other religions, people of other religions. Why? Because they're going to lead you astray from the wave of la

00:26:32--> 00:26:38

colina matter that cartoon Very little is what you remember. What does that mean that polygon?

00:26:39--> 00:26:55

polygon is from Kayla, and Kayla is used for shortage when something is level when something is small, how in its quantity in its amount. And it's also used for that which is less in time,

00:26:56--> 00:27:00

meaning it's used for less time. So a short while.

00:27:01--> 00:27:16

So Polina man, my over here is extra, and it gives the meaning of extremely little very little close to nothing. It is that you remember, that come from taco, which is to remember to take a lesson to take heed.

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

Now what does it mean by this kalila method?

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

Meaning you remember, only for a little while,

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

or only a few people remember?

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

Or you remember only a little bit, isn't it so

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

that we have read so much of the Quran? But how much of the Quran do we really remember right? Now, if I were to ask you,

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

how many of us really remember everything, it's only the main main points, right? other details we forget.

00:27:47--> 00:28:19

On either method, the current, how very little is what you remember. Secondly, you remember for only some time, only until you have to do the test. And then after that, if I asked you what's on the first juice, you probably won't remember. That's because in Santa Stromness here, forgetfulness, we forget. And also karela, Mexico, meaning very few people remember, therefore, what's the solution? What's the solution? Why is the last point on saying this Kadena method calm?

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

What's the objective of saying this?

00:28:23--> 00:28:50

That you have to keep reminding yourself how the car through what through the Quran? So can a person ever say I have studied the Quran? Now? I don't need to study it anymore. I've studied it once or twice and that's it. No, we forget, many people forget and we forget a lot. Therefore, there is the need of constant connection with the Quran so that a person can continue to take reminders.

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

So what do we learn from this ayah?

00:28:54--> 00:29:08

First of all, we learn from desire but the obligation of adhering to what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed and giving it the topmost priority, because Allah subhanaw taala says it to be a follow, follow that which has been revealed.

00:29:09--> 00:29:16

So what does it mean? That we're not just required to believe in the Quran, but we're also obliged to follow it.

00:29:17--> 00:29:24

Secondly, we learn from this ayah about the prohibition of adhering to others besides of law, over obedience to Allah.

00:29:25--> 00:29:44

Because Allah says when at the W Roman dooney earlier, don't follow other Elliot besides Him, whether it is false gods or it is some saints or it is some dead people or it is anyone whom a person is following in disobedience to a loss.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

So in other words, do not leave the way of Allah and start following the wave, other ideologies, other philosophies, other thoughts. If you look at it, there is so much out there

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

in the world today,

00:30:01--> 00:30:15

so much you enter a library 1000s and 1000s of books. Every person has his own ideology, has his own philosophy, has his own thing has his own mindset. And that's what he's promoting.

00:30:16--> 00:30:37

Similarly, you go on the internet, you click on one link, and it will take you to so many places. There's so much out there in the world, people are promoting so many things. What do you select everything? Do you accept everything? No. Because if you accept everything, then what's going to happen? What's going to happen? You won't have any identity.

00:30:38--> 00:30:39

You won't have any identity.

00:30:41--> 00:31:25

Or there's a lots of penalties, they were into their experiment fill up, usually look and submit in there. And if you have a most of those on the earth, they will mislead you far from a loss penalty. They will mislead you. Who if you follow most of the people on this earth. So for us what is the criteria? Many people are saying many things, what's the criteria for us? The Quran because Allah subhanaw taala says it who mountains in a lake never become Valletta, Toby Roman dooney earlier, many people are saying many things today, but what are you required to follow the Quran? So that is your criteria? Whenever people are saying something, check, is this something acceptable according

00:31:25--> 00:31:47

to the Quran, if it is, go ahead, take it if you want to. But if it's not, then you cannot take it. And in every era, in every time, people have presented statements, they have presented their opinions, their views, their ideologies. So this is applicable at all times. No matter where you are, when you are what is your criteria?

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

That is what you're supposed to follow.

00:31:52--> 00:32:16

Then we also learned from this idea about the fact that people in general take very little heat, and they remember only for a little while. This is why if you tell somebody about something once, don't expect them to remember it forever. expect them to forget about it. And it's something natural, therefore, just remind them politely. That's it. Because if you come frustrated, it's not going to help you. Nor is it going to help them.

00:32:18--> 00:32:26

Welcome in Korea in alakina. And how many cities have we destroyed? How many people have we destroyed?

00:32:27--> 00:32:56

The word come is used in two ways. First of all, is defend interrogation as a question that how many, for example, we learned earlier, Polycom, la vista, Allah subhanaw taala asked him, How long did you stay come? How long? How much? So it's literally to ask. Secondly, film is used for hub of meaning to express the katra and the abundance of something

00:32:57--> 00:33:43

to express the great quantity of something. So over here, when Allah subhanaw taala says welcome in Korea in alaknanda. What does it mean? How many meanings are so many? Not just one, but many are creating? What does Korea refer to a town which town where people are living. And remember Korea is from powerful idea, which basically means to come together. And it's used for people who are living together, regardless of their population. It could be a few people in a town in a village. It could be many people in a city it could be many more people in a province in a country. So Korea, basically the emphasis of Korea is on the population the fact that people are living together.

00:33:45--> 00:34:15

So we'll come in Korea and how many populations are Lackner how we have destroyed. Why, because of its sins, because of its disobedience, because of the rejection of the messengers. Further a habit sooner so came to it our force, meaning our punishment, our retribution, meaning our retribution came upon them at what time batten by night, a home called Elune or when they were napping in the afternoon. When they were resting in the afternoon.

00:34:16--> 00:34:30

The punishment came to them without any warning biotin biotin is from the reflectors beta, and bayad is by night meaning when something happens by night, or while sleeping at night,

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

while sleeping at night.

00:34:34--> 00:34:44

So the punishment came to them while they were asleep at night, or the punishment came to them home caught a room while they were resting

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

or alone is a plural of

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

the word file is used in two ways. One is who is called aka illumine, whom one who speaks a speaker is from total power.

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

Word speech, or il one who speaks and the word pi is also used for one who is doing a Lula.

00:35:10--> 00:35:11

What is pi? Lula

00:35:12--> 00:35:20

the afternoon rest. The midday rest, basically, by Lula is a rest that is taken halfway during the day

00:35:21--> 00:35:37

when a person rests halfway during the day, even if he's not sleeping, even if that does not involve sleep, the fact that he's resting, the fact that he's in bed, the fact that he's not working at that time he's taking a break. What is that a Lula?

00:35:38--> 00:35:58

Just like sometimes children, you put them to sleep during the day that they have to take a nap. If they don't take a nap, are they allowed to play? No, they have to stay in bed, isn't it so which is why sometimes you go by the childcare. And you see some children, they're lying around awake. That is what they're kalola whether or not they're sleeping.

00:35:59--> 00:36:05

So all in all, while they were asleep during the day, or while they were resting during the day.

00:36:06--> 00:36:44

Now remember that in hot countries, especially in deserts, people do take an afternoon nap. Why? Because during the midday, the sun is right at the top and it's extremely hot, it's extremely hot, it's not possible to stay out in the sun for a very long time. Literally, you will step out for a few moments, you will feel the heat, it's very intense, the sand, the ground is also extremely hot. If you ever go to the bottom and you try to do the life at that time, literally, it will be difficult for you to put your foot somewhere. So all in all, while they were resting during the day.

00:36:45--> 00:37:05

Now remember that these two times by night, and by midday, these two times are a time of their time off. He listens in the sense that a person does not alert at that time, because He's resting. During the day, what happens you have your phone with you, you have your keys with you, you have your bag with you.

00:37:06--> 00:37:29

But at nighttime, what do people generally do? Either they will turn their phone off, or they will put it away? Similarly, they're not concerned about their keys at that time. What are they concerned about? resting? They're careless at that time. They're not that concerned. So the punishment came to them at a time when they were least expecting it when they were least expecting it.

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

What's the purpose of mentioning this is

00:37:33--> 00:38:15

that so many people were destroyed before and our punishment came upon them while they were resting during night or during the day. What's the objective of saying this? It's a severe warning and threat to to those people who don't believe that if you don't believe if you reject the messenger, take a lesson from history. take a lesson from history and look at what happened to people before that the punishment came to them. They were not spared. So you think that your denial is not going to lead to any consequences? No, there are going to be consequences. So take a lesson from history. And don't be stubborn. Don't be rebellious before Allah. Don't think of yourself to be very high.

00:38:15--> 00:38:16

Rather Submit.

00:38:18--> 00:38:22

We learned in South America I 97. And 98 I mean,

00:38:23--> 00:38:48

do home but sooner back and we're home net imune. Then did the people of the cities feel secure from our punishment coming to them at night while they were asleep? Our Amina at home but sooner the hand or homea are born? Or did the people of the cities feel secure from our punishment coming to them in the morning while they were at play? When can a person feel secure?

00:38:49--> 00:39:12

Never. Meaning not even for a moment kind of person feel secure. So in this is a severe warning for people. And there is a lesson in it for all people that do what you're supposed to do and don't feel heedless or don't feel that you don't need to submit to Allah. Because there are consequences. You don't know when the punishment would come

00:39:13--> 00:39:55

firmer Canada home, it's a home but sooner. And their declaration when our punishment came to them was only in LA and Carlo in canal only mean, it was only that they said indeed we were wrong to us. From our Canada. Well, that is a claim. Similarly, the word dharwad is used for a prayer a call a plea, what a person says out loud. So at that point, the only thing that they were shouting out the only thing that they were screaming out that they were yelling was what the inner cannavale mean that indeed it is us who were wrong.

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

And when did they say this? Is Jehovah sooner when the punishment came

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

upon them.

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

At that time, they admitted their mistakes. And before they never admitted their mistakes

00:40:09--> 00:40:51

and this is what happens. People when everything is fine, they don't accept their mistake. They don't want to change. But when they suffer from some consequences, that is when they realize Yes, it was my fault. Yes, it was our fault. Yes, we shouldn't have done that. But does that confession help them in any way whatsoever? It doesn't. We learned earlier in total enantiomer yet the Bible is a lot bigger. Lion Pharaoh never sent a man who had lambda con amulet when kaaboo Kesava T. Monica Hyland, the person who did not believe before his belief at the time of punishment is not going to help him. His good deeds at that time are not going to help him. What is the right time for

00:40:51--> 00:40:57

admitting your mistake? In the dunya not when the punishment is extending on the people.

00:40:58--> 00:41:01

similarity we don't insult an MBA is 11 to 15.

00:41:02--> 00:41:49

Allah subhanaw taala says welcome custom name in creating cannot limit and will ensure better calm and serene and how many a city which was unjust have we shattered and produced after it another people find them a hassle but center either home in higher Kowloon and when its inhabitants perceived our punishment at once they fled from it. They were running away from it. And it was sad to them letter koodo wajir illa with rifton fee womma sakeena comme la la come to saloon, it has said to them do not flee, but return to where you were given luxury enter your homes, perhaps you will be questioned. Now you cannot escape. Now you cannot get out of this problem.

00:41:50--> 00:41:58

And if at that point, a person tries to confess his mistakes, tries to admit his mistakes to change the situation. It's not going to help at all.

00:41:59--> 00:42:10

And they said Kahlua waverunner, in continuation of the MBA that they said in cannavale mean indeed we will wrongdoers from as Allah tilka aware who

00:42:12--> 00:42:39

has eaten harmony, and that declaration of theirs did not cease until we made them as a harvest that is mowed down extinguished by a fire. They were completely eradicated. Their confession at that time did not help them. It did not. So right now is the time to admit your mistake to admit your faults and reform because later it is no use
