shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
lesson number 91. So to Allah
wa who are loving and he is the one who you're celeea habush Romania de Matic.
He is the one who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy.
Allah subhanaw taala is the one who sends the rear
air the air is the plural of re.
And what does that mean? wind.
It's basically the movement of air, which is sometimes very severe and sometimes very gentle, sometimes very cold, sometimes very hot.
In the Quran,
there are two forms of the word ri, one is a singular and the other is Flor, Ria.
And generally, when the plural form is used, like over here every year,
it gives a meaning of wins that bring the mercy of Allah
with wins that bring rain that bring benefit to the people.
And the singular form Ria generally indicates such when
that brings about destruction or punishment,
which is why we also learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he prayed a loving mother on her hand, when, after all her re
that whenever the wind would blow, he would pray that Oh Allah make this reaction.
And don't make it that he.
So Allah is the one who sends the Ria, notice it is only a loss of penalty. No one else can cause the winds to blow. It is Allah who sends the winds at his commands at his orders, the winds blow
and these winds he sends as bushland as good news.
Good news of what
good news of rain, veining of a rock mighty before His mercy. beignet a day literally is between two hands. But what does it mean before? So before His mercy, what does it refer to rain? So before he actually sends the rain, he sends the good news that rain is coming
Before he actually sends the rain, he sends good news after rain coming. How through the winds.
And especially where the land is dry, especially where the climate is hot. Where you are in a desert.
When the cool wind blows, what does that indicate that very soon, clouds are going to come and very soon it's going to rain.
So those winds become a source of good news.
In sort of rule number 46 we learn woman at heat and use it or Ria. MOBA, shiratama chirality and obvious signs is that he sends the winds as Bringers of good tidings while you do Coco Mira hemmati and to let you taste His mercy,
it's just the appetizer. And then later on what happens, the actual rain comes buchon beignet remedy.
And this in itself is mercy. That Allah says the good news of the blessing coming
had the until meaning the winds continue to blow until either 100 letsa. Heaven until they raise clouds. What kind of clouds that are still on that are heavy.
Upon let's What does it refer to?
And apologies from the room platters of lamb lamb from the word poly? What does poly mean? level or small in quantity.
And it's the opposite of what has come from in
abundance to be a lot in quantity. And color is to be a little in quantity.
And upon layer upon layer color is to find something light
to find something light in weight
to find something light in weight. Why do you find something like to be in weight first of all based on your judgment.
Based on your judgment, for example, you see something you see a bag. It's very small, let's say a garbage bag. It's very small. You see it and what's the first thing that comes to mind? It's probably very light. It's not that heavy.
Sometimes what happens, you pick it up, it's very heavy,
submit it, you see a bag, and it appears to be very light, you pick it up, and it's extremely heavy. And sometimes the exact opposite happens, you think of something to be extremely heavy, you pick it up, and it's very light.
So a color is to find something to consider something to be light. Why? First of all, based on one's judgment.
Secondly, because of one strength,
like you're carrying something, for instance, and you find it very heavy, but your brother comes, and he takes it back from you. Like, it's not that heavy. Why are you complaining? It's not heavy at all.
For you, it's heavy. But for him, it's not heavy. Why?
Because he's much more stronger than you.
So a left literally means it considered to be light, it found to be light.
When you find something light, can you pick it up easily?
Can you lift it up easily? Can you transport it easily? Of course you can.
So a lot is that the winds, they carry their ways sahaabah and clouds.
And these clouds are gone. And they're extremely heavy. All of the products that we
just imagine sometimes when you're shoveling your driveway,
and you're picking up all that snow, and you're throwing it on the site. Isn't it heavy? It's very heavy.
And that's just the snow that's on your driveway. Just imagine the entire city, the entire province that is covered in snow? Where did that come from?
From above from the clouds.
And those clouds are carrying all that weight, all that weight.
And just imagine it's up in the air.
So Allah subhanaw taala sends these winds and these winds what do they do? They raise they lift up they make they form heavy clouds? Why are they having so called as a plural of subpoena?
Why is it heavy, because of all the water that they contain?
Because of all the water that they contain to either a color Sahaba silcon.
And just imagine if we were to transfer all that water that falls down from the sky to different places on the earth? How difficult it would be for us
how difficult so so haven't seen
the winds, they lift them up.
And then what happens when these clouds are formed these heavy clouds sakana who we drive it? So Connor from the refactor senior cough?
And what does it mean? To drive to urge on
sack from the same root letters is used for a driver car driving.
So sakana who we drove it, meaning we drive the clouds? We take them from one place to the other?
And where do we drive them to leave Paladin To a land.
The word palette is used for land and it's also used for city.
It's also used for a place where people live
the different words used for cities, right?
The word Korea what's the emphasis on
the population right. So what does it show that in the word ballot? Yes, it also applies to city but primarily refers to the land
the so called holy ballot in my head we drive it to a land that is dead meaning dry and bury,
what do plants indicate? What did they signify life and the absence of plants what does
that mean there is no life over here.
Because if there are plants then there will be other creatures.
If there are no plants, there is no greenery. There is no beauty Why would you even go there
for a second only valid in my yet we drive these clouds to a deadline for engine v then we sat down with it.
Meaning from it from what? From these heavy clouds from these heavy rain clouds. What do we do unzila we sent down what do we send down the water in different forms
for Alhaji now v human cola Some are odd and as a result of that water coming down from the sky to the earth. Especially the dead Earth, the dead land that is barren on which there are no plans. What happens we cause to come out what a seminar a seminar discipline of some
And it is used for
the product of a process.
Basically it applies to whatever the trees or the plants or the vines they produce
whether it is a fruit or a vegetable,
whether it is something edible or inedible or something poisonous.
It could be sweet it could be bitter, or it could be plain bland and it also applies to the grain of different crops.
So for origin ebrahimian Khalifa Murat and notice Calista Murat What does that indicate? A variety, different different types, different colors, different shades, different sizes, different fragrances?
What is the last Panasonic telling us all of this when we see it?
When we see this isn't quite obvious.
masking user quite obvious. We see the rain coming down. And yes, after the rain, the plants come forward. Why is the last Panzer I mentioned in this
to remind us about what
about the fact that he is the one who does it. And also he is telling us that when we look at that, when we look at this whole system, that water coming down from the sky, plants coming out from the earth, don't just look at it and say yes, it rained yesterday. That's
what's the big deal?
Yes, it is a big deal because Allah subhanaw taala is teaching you a big lesson through this.
And what is that lesson that gallica new motor, now unlock.
In the same way as from the dead Earth came out a similar lot. Similarly, when you have died and you have turned to dust, we are going to bring you out alive of the earth as well.
Because I econo dual motor motor is a Florida market, there are local to the current that you remember. Meaning every time you look at rain, every time you look at the after effects of rain,
reflection reflect on this fact as well.
That similarly, you will also be taken out.
And from several narrations, we learned that on the day of judgment on the Day of Resurrection, a lost count, it will send down a rain from the sky, and the rain will pour on the earth for about 40 days. And the dead will be brought out of their graves alive, and they will grow just as seeds grow into plants. This is how exactly we will be brought to life
instead of no Alex pantones has an eye at 17 and 18
that will love and better communal arlena batter some maturity to configure where you need to come if Roger
and Allah has caused you to grow from the earth of progressive groups
from the earth you grow progressively, then he will return you into it and extract you yet another extraction
meaning you will bring you out of the earth another time.
So the growth of the plants, what do they indicate
a loss of power
that the way Allah causes the land to produce plants day and night, he will alter resurrect you after death.
So what are the many lessons in this ayah for us,
if you connect this ayah with the previous ayah in the previous if what is mentioned
in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala says he is the one who sends the clouds, and he sends the winds and gradually the clouds form and the bear a lot of weeks. And then eventually what happens
eventually what happens, rain comes down onto
onto land that is that and then there is life.
Similarly, you are in a very difficult situation.
in a very difficult situation it is as though you've become dead, everything is gone
below the median.
And a person thinks he cannot do anything anymore. He cannot move on anymore.
But he shouldn't give up Why? Because the loss of data does not just send the rain immediately. But what does he do? He sends the good news of the help that is coming.
And then eventually the help comes. But it takes time. Why? Because it's a whole process.
It's a whole process.
And these if they demonstrate that Allah Allah will halco while I'm wrong, that he is one who has created all of this, and he is the one who has authority over who is managing all of this.
Way better to tie up
and the good land, Yahoo Juniper to be a veneer of its vegetation emerges by the permission of his Lord.
From where the land that is for you
because there are different types of land,
different types of Earth different types of soil. So one type of land is that which is telling you it is clean, it is unpolluted. It has good properties. It is pure. So what happens to it when rain falls down on it? Yeah, who do Nevada who it produces its vegetation. What does that mean?
Plants vegetation that which grows out of here. So the good land produces its vegetation, which vegetation that which is good.
How to Be it nilipie
by the permission of its Lord.
But on the other hand, one lady hausa, but that land and Lady refers to the ballot, meaning that ballot which is Hubble's law, it is impure.
It is bad, it is unclean, it is polluted.
It has bad properties
then such land, what's going to happen no matter how much rain falls on it, Lera yehudah elab Nikita,
nothing comes out except Nikita level insignificant
Nikita is on the roof or is known cat that a naked is basically to be very hard. And it is to refuse to give that which has been asked
before refuse to give that which is being demanded.
So for example, a person asked someone can you please give me $2 there's no way Never Gonna Give You and he's like I need it for this and this and this reason please say no. refuses to give that which is asked doesn't even give a cent
doesn't even get $1 doesn't even take good words. nukkad extremely hard, extremely difficult, extremely tough. This is what nukkad is. And because of that nukkad is used for kalido nerf that which is a very little benefit.
Very little benefit. The does not benefit at all. So what does it mean by layer for to Elana hidden? Meaning it only grows a little bit with a lot of difficulty. It barely grows anything. Hardly anything goes on it.
Maybe you will see one blade of grass. Maybe you will see one weed. That's all you will see. Hardly
gallica no sorry for if
you call me Sharon. does do we diversely explain the signs for people who offer gratitude for those people who are grateful to Allah, because it is only such people who will take a lesson from this.
Now in this ayah in particular, there is a big lesson for us
a loss of plantar dimensions two types of land.
One is that which is it has good properties.
When it's given rain, it produces a lot of good.
On the other hand, there's the languages hubbies, which is impure. It has bad properties. No matter how much pure water mountain water you pour over it, nothing is going to come out.
I'm sure all of you have heard of this example, that if you have a very nice green healthy drink, and you pour it over a garbage bag that has been sitting in your garage for a whole week isn't going to fix it.
No, because it's horrible stuff. In fact, it's going to corrupt, it's going to make your drink dirty as well.
But at the same time, if you put that drink in your body, if your system is willing to accept it, then it's going to be beneficial.
So, there are two types of land.
And similarly, there are two types of people as well.
First of all those who benefit from listening to the Quran, they benefit from learning the Quran.
They benefit from accepting the
and on the other hand, there are those who have no good in them.
Because of which no matter how much on this study, no matter how much Quran they learn, or how much they memorize. They don't produce any good.
They don't produce any good.
And these are two types of people.
When it comes to
two types of students of color,
one benefits and the other does not benefit. You may have heard some people say, you know so until the study the empathy never changed.
I didn't see any change in them.
Why is a problem with the court
the problem is them because they're not good. Therefore, no matter how much good is poured over them, nothing happens to them.
Just like a rock.
No matter how much water you pour on it, it's not going to absorb, it might break. But that's it, it's not going to absorb.
And there's a Hadith, which is reported in algo hottie
in whichever Messiah he says the Prophet sallallahu Sallam set the example of the guidance and knowledge.
The example of the guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me
is that of an abundant rain falling on an end,
that just as rain falls
abundantly, similarly, a loss of penetrating has given me guidance and knowledge,
some of which, meaning some of the soil was fertile soil. And as a result, it absorbed the rainwater.
And when it absorbed the rainwater What happened? It brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. Why? Because it was good land, unpolluted, with good properties, rain came, it absorbed everything. And it didn't just absorb it like a sponge, but rather it produced
And another portion of it, meaning another portion of land was hard. It was stuff.
And what did it do? It just held the rainwater.
But Allah benefited the people with it. They utilize it for drinking, and for making their animals drink from it,
and also for irrigation of the land for cultivation.
And a portion of it was completely barren, which would neither hold the water nor bring forth any vegetation.
So in the Hadith, there are three types of land. One is that which absorbs and produces.
The second is that which does not absorb but it only holds.
The third is it doesn't absorb, it doesn't hold the water just flows from above it, and it goes elsewhere.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the first is the example of the person who comprehends a large religion and gets benefit.
How, by learning as well as teaching others,
that he accepts it, he learns it.
And he produces meaning he teaches others as well.
So the first is example of that believer who does not just believe in the Quran, does not just learn and understand and comprehend the Quran. But he also benefits by it,
you can see it making a change in his life, in his heart, in his thinking in his behavior, in his dealings with people.
And it's possible that this process is very slow.
It happens, sometimes you see the change overnight. Sometimes it takes a long time for that soil to be able to absorb rain, for that soil to be able to produce something as a result of that green.
The second is the one who only holds the water, meaning he learns it, and he only passes it on.
It doesn't really make a change in his life.
But at least he is passing it on to others.
At least he's doing that. And the last example is that of a person who does not care for it, and does not accept the guidance with which Allah subhanaw taala has sent me with.
So we have to check ourselves
that as we are receiving this quote on what is our reaction to it?
Are we of those who are accepting
and benefiting from it?
And also passing it on to others? Or are we of those who are only memorizing and learning and that's it. And maybe whatever we're memorizing and learning, perhaps somebody will benefit from it at some point in our lives. Because if we don't fully absorb it, then yes, we may benefit everybody. But if it doesn't benefit us, then how unfair can we be to ourselves? And the third is of those who neither benefit nor benefit others may have lost a penalty to protect us and save us from being one of those.
We listen to the recitation of these if and then we'll continue the lesson.
Well, who want to levy
created the earth with Islam. And we have been told not to facade. Why because if we do facade in the earth, then it's going to become harmful. The same earth which is supposed to be beneficial, is going to become harmful.
seminary, Allah subhanaw taala has created each individual unfit.
It's what we do to ourselves that makes us play or hobbies. It's what we do to ourselves.
And as a result of that, if we have inculcated goodness in ourselves, then definitely the Quran will help.
The Quran will cause us to grow more.
But if our inclination is towards impure, towards hobbies, then definitely the Quran is not going to help.
So at the end of the day, it's what the person chooses for himself.
It's what a person desires what a person wants to be. And according to that to call an effect.
Okay, let's continue.
In the following is that we will learn in Sharla the stories of different prophets have been mentioned
various prophets and it begins with the story of new Artesia.
Remember that either medicina
some scholars say that he was the first Prophet, the first Nabhi.
However, nor are they selling Who was he, the first lawsuit.
And there is a difference between Russell and Nabhi, who is also
the one who brings a new message to the people a new message.
So no hardest and
he was the first rustle.
If you notice earlier in the saga, the story of Adam and Sam is mentioned.
Now, it begins with the story of new Hardison because it was the first messenger
and it is said that new Hardison came to this dunya came to this earth about 1000 years after Adam Edison
And during the first 1000 years of human beings on the earth, everyone was Muslim, as we learned earlier, that canon so Martin wahida, all people we're one nation, all people were Ubuntu heap.
They were doing what Allah subhanaw taala had commanded them to do. Yes, there were minor mistakes. There were minor wrongs. Even sometimes there were major mistakes. For instance,
for instance, the first murder between the children have either medicina
However, no one committed chick
schilke did not exist, which shows the fact that a loss of Panasonic and forgive all things, except for sure.
When people began doing schilke, then Allah Subhana Allah sent a messenger.
And who was that first messenger? Newhart isn't.
Even our vessel did on him and several other scholars of the Sahaba. They have said that the first idol worship began, when some righteous people died.
When some righteous people they passed away.
And what happened shaitaan came to their children,
and at least said to them, that look, these righteous people, these bias people, they have gone,
they have passed away. Soon, the later generations will forget about them. Why don't you make their pictures so that you can remember them?
make their picture so that you can remember them? And so they made their pictures. And it went down to the extent of building worship places over their graves. They made their images. And it began with remembering the memory of those who were very righteous and beloved.
Do worshipping them.
Praying to them.
So this is how should begin.
And they said that those whom they had drawn whose pictures they had drawn, they were what so are your hosts here and Nestle?
And eventually they began worshipping them as well. They're all mentioned in sort of noon.
And when this practice became very popular, that everyone began doing chick that along with worshipping the last panel, they began worshipping idols.
They began worshipping some pictures.
No Vanessa was sent as a messenger to people on the earth.
And primarily, it was in Iraq.
No Hassan's name was new, even lemak. The son of learning
a new name has mentioned about 43 times in the
So almost pans out it says locata autosol, lanahan. In alchemy,
certainly we sent new an incident with a message. He was the first messenger to his people, which people the nation that he was from, in present day Iraq
for caller so he said, Yeah, call me all my people, you will notice is very common, that each messenger addresses people with the air coming
from New harness and I do musar listener.
Many messenger said that.
So all my people, or Buddha law, worship Allah, meaning worship only Allah.
Because it's possible that these people were already worshipping Him. But along with worshiping Allah, they were also worshipping other idols.
So by saying over the law, what does it mean?
What he do only worship him?
Why? Because men are coming Illa in zero, you have no other God except him.
The only one who deserves your worship is him alone. No one else about him. Because he is the one who created you.
He is the one to whom Hulk and Ahmed belongs to exclusively.
And if you don't worship Him alone, and you worship others along with him,
then in the ahafo Indeed, I fear are they come upon you, or they're a Yeoman or lien the punishment of creating?
Meaning I fear that if you meet a law while associating others with him, you will be in trouble.
That on the Day of Judgment, Yeoman or lien, it's a great day. I fear that if you die in the state of Schick, there will be punishment for you on that great day.
How is the day of judgment a great day?
How is it a great day
because of what will happen in that day?
days are great, they're important, or they're insignificant
because of what happens in them. So the Day of Judgment is called human alien, because of the great events that will take place on that day. The great events
in this dunya if a big criminal is Scott, and his sentence is given on a particular day, everybody's made aware of it. That day is remembered.
So the Day of Judgment is a great day. Why? Because all the criminals of this world will be caught and they'll be punished. That is what makes the Day of Judgment. The Great Day.
So how do people respond? Harlan Malibu, the eminent the elite, they said
what his alma
mater is from the fetters mainland Hamza
and mill is the fill of something
that which fills the container, the quantity that fills a container.
We have learned to earlier mill, the fill of the earth
and Merlot is used for a crowd or it is used for the council of elders.
The notables the elite.
Why are they called
for several reasons? Because first of all, wherever they go, crowds follow them.
wherever they are,
there will be crowds. If they are in a gathering in imageless you will see a crowd of people around them
and they're also called the mullet. Why? Because they fill the hearts of people with are
so common man or woman call me the elite of his people they said
in Ireland or aka feelin le movie. Indeed we see you in clear air
in our opinion, according to our understanding
You are definitely in clear misguidance Why did they say that you are in finale movie? Because he was saying something that contradicted what everybody was doing.
Everyone was doing [???].
Everyone was doing Schick and here is one person who is saying do not do [???]. Call upon Allah subhanaw taala alone. So because of that reason, they said you are in blood Allah movie and you are clearly misguided.
Our forefathers, our traditions, they're completely different. And what you're saying is completely different. And you're saying that if we go to a law in this state, we will be punished. You're definitely in bloodily movie. And this has been the case in every era. This has been the attitude of people throughout history,
that whenever they have been told that what they're doing is wrong. They have called the one who is informing them, of misguided person.
Each Prophet, each Prophet was considered as someone who was misguided by his people, including Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Included Toronto toffee is number 32. We learn what either Oh, I'm in La, la lune. And when they saw them, they said Verily, these have indeed gone astray.
And the same thing happens today as well. That those people who are following the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala those people who compromise on their dunya in order to please Allah, what are they called? misguided people.
People who don't have correct goals, people who have gone off track
so if somebody says that you won't be offended, this is the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah.
And generally, it is the elite. It is those people who are successful in the worldly sense who call those on religion misguided.
Allah He said
know how they said and responded that you have called me all my people lace a banana. There is no error in me. I'm not umbrella at all. I noticed the word Delilah tune it is not clear. What does it mean? Any kind of misguidance from the greatest to the smallest?
Nothing at all that I am doing. Or saying is of misguidance Why? Because I'm a messenger of Allah.
Yeah, Tommy laser butyl Allah. I'm not crazy. What I'm saying is not wrong.
When our kin Nila tsunamis are better I mean, rather, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds.
I am His representative and I have been sent to you to tell you about what he wants.
Generally, when you call people to the Quran, when you call people to a loss of
some people, their reaction is
responding very negatively.
Instead of listening, instead of discussing immediately, they begin to pass her judgments.
Instead of giving a second thought to what you have said, they will immediately pass judgments or an on no way don't listen at all.
So the problem is not with the Quran, but rather the problem is with these people
because according to them, guidance is the benefit of dunya. It's not the benefit of the Allah.
So anyone who calls them to benefit of the ACA, they think that that person is misguided
