Kala item. Say Have you considered? Have you thought that Miranda Allahu Lacan relisting, what Allah has sent down to you off provision.
From where? From the sky from the sky Allah subhanaw taala sends down rain, sun, sunlight, right, which is the source of provision for us.
If there is no sunlight, if there is no rain then nothing will produce from the earth. Nothing at all. No plants, no animals, no food. So Matt and Allah will accommodate in what Allah has sent down to you from up above of provision.
And remember that it is it does not just include food but everything that a person benefits from.
Anything that a person uses. It's not just food that you put in your mouth.
That is sunlight that is providing vitamin D to you. To strengthen your bones. It doesn't necessarily go from your mouth, it goes from your skin, fresh air,
time, many blessings Allah subhanaw taala has given any sense them upon us.
For geraldton then you have made minggu from it. Holloman unlawful wahala unlawful.
Allah has sent down this provision to you and you yourself have made it lawful and unlawful.
Say, Allah, who has Allah at the Medical, has he permitted it for you, that you can make whatever you wish lawful and you can make whatever you wish unlawful? Under the lucky testosterone? Or is it that you are fabricating this against Allah?
Is it that you're lying against him by associating this to him?
So we see that when Allah subhanaw taala is the provider when he is the one who gives risk? It is he who decides what is lawful and what is unlawful?
And where do we find that from?
Where do we find that from? From what Allah Subhana Allah has revealed the Quran
which is mentioned the previous ayat.
So we as people don't have the right to make something Hillel to make something heard on this law comes from Wu from Allah alone.
As we entered into the era of AI a 54, Allah Allahu halco will
unquestionably His is the creation and the command he creates, and he commands only none but him.
And the machine of maca, what have they done? Allah subhanaw taala provided them risk and they made parts of it head on,
as we have learned in detail previously in total, and are
well under leadin if taruna Allah His ketubah and what is the supposition of who of those people who have the runer Angela Hill caddy? Who fabricated against a law a lie?
Those people who fabricate lies against what lies whether it is ascribing children or partners to him, or it is declaring what he made lawful as unlawful, what he made unlawful as lawful. So those people who fabricate lies against Allah, what do they think that what's going to happen with them? Yo will pm on the day of judgment?
What do they think? How are they going to be dealt with people who are lying against Allah? Do they think they will not be punished?
Do they think they will not be questioned? Do they think they will not be reprimanded in the law Hello, do Falkland Islands. Indeed, Allah is possessor of bounty, meaning he shows a lot of bounty island as upon the people. He shows the many favorites when I can act our own lash guru, but most of them are not grateful.
What do we see in this ayah that many people they say whatever they want to say? Whatever they feel like about Allah about the Day of Judgment, and they base everything, On what? On supposition on assumptions,
not facts, not realities, but everything that based on what on just what they feel like
their assumptions. But what did we learn earlier? That one, it does not replace the truth.
No matter how strongly a person believes in it,
it cannot replace the truth No matter how strongly a person believes in it.
So another one that these people had is that no matter what we do, we will be fine in the hereafter.
We will not be punished. We will not be questioned.
We will not be interrogated Nothing is going to happen.
If there is a hereafter Allah will be good to us.
But what is Allah say? What do you think that you're not going to be questioned? Of course you will be questioned. But then a person wonders that how come such people are not punished today.
Allah says that he is a father and a nurse, he gets dressed by two people, he does not punish them immediately when I kidnap thirumalai, Ashkelon, but most of them are not grateful for what for the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given them
one at a coffee shop name and you are not engaged in any matter what matter Kunal v sharpening, Chetan is from the roof matters, sheen Hamza noon, and Chen is a condition a situation that a person is in.
But generally the word shine is used for an important task that a person is performing.
So, basically shutting is a state in which a person is performing a very important task, a person is doing something very important.
What makes certain moments important and other moments unimportant.
What is it that makes certain times more important other times less important?
Think about it.
It's about what you're doing. Right? If you're doing something very important that time will be important. If you're doing something that is not that important, that time will be not that important either. So shorten is a condition, a situation a state that a person is in
and why is a collection because he is doing something that is very important, whether it is good or bad, but it's important to
so America coffee sharpening, you are not engaged in any matter occupied with any work. One other clue, nor do you recite mineral from it. Min Quran from Quran
meaning in any situation, men who who refers to the the state, that from your different states, you are in a state in which you are reciting the Quran.
From your different states that you're in, you are in a state in which you are reciting the Quran. Think about it in a day we do many different things, isn't it? We eat, we talk, we walk, we drive, we're sitting we're standing, we're walking, we're doing different things. And all of those things that we're doing is reciting the Quran.
Correct hamdulillah it's a big blessing.
So what matters lumen lumen Quran in a situation which are reciting the Quran, so, will matter Hanafi shonin will matter to me in human Quran and you are not engaged in any matter or recite any of the Quran.
Who was you referring to? First of all the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because it is singular, the kulu that Lu, it is singular. Then Allah subhanaw taala says what a meluna and nor do you all do Min amyrlin from any deed, notice this is plural now, who does it refer to? Everyone, not just the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but everyone
that you do not do it any action, any deed whether it is severe or Kerviel whether it is minor or major height or sharp, good or evil.
No matter what you are doing in the corner, they should accept that we are upon you witnesses
should is a Florida shy then we are observing you no matter what you are doing, no matter what state you are in, no matter what action you're involved in, you're engaged whether you're reciting the Quran or you're doing something else who is watching you. Allah is watching you He is observing you at all times and every situation that you're in
is to feel a fee when you are engrossed in it to feel alone so newsletters fair yet but failed
and failed is to overflow
remember it is to overflow the field Lumina demaree there are you know the field Lumina demaree they overflow with tears.
So basically it is when a container when a vessel is filled up. And then the liquid that is inside it begins to pour out. It begins to fall out.
So there's this concept of the container being filled up in
Then it's overflowing. And when it's overflowing, what happens? The water spreads everywhere, isn't it? It spreads. It doesn't just collect in one place, it spreads.
It has had a foul blue fill Hades, a foul blue fill Hades, that they engaged in a conversation. They were busy talking.
They were busy talking. And you see how water fills up the container and it spreads. The similarity people when they're talking, their conversation spreads, they talk about one thing or another thing, and then another thing.
And generally, if Allah is to be engaged in a task, so much so that a person even forgets himself,
that a person doesn't even remember himself does not even realize himself. What does he mean by that?
that a person is, for example working, and he doesn't realize that he hasn't eaten for a while.
Or a person is sitting, watching TV, he doesn't realize it's been two hours.
Or that a person is busy talking, and he doesn't realize he had a headache.
So if either is when a person is engaged in something to such an extent that he does not even remember himself. Now will he remember Allah?
If he does not even remember himself wouldn't remember Allah.
I, for example, sometimes it happens that a person is busy. He's sitting, and when he gets up, then his legs are hurting, his back is hurting. He's like, I didn't even realize my legs were hurting. I didn't even realize my back was hurting.
So this is what to feel Luna is so is to feel Luna Feeny when you're so involved in it, when you're completely into it. When you're completely immersed in it, who is watching you.
Allah is watching you, you're not thinking about him. You're not even thinking about yourself. You're not even thinking about your family. You're not even thinking about your loved ones. But who is watching you at that time. A lot is watching you.
Why am I here is a boo and it is not hidden years ago from the newsletters I say but and resume is when something becomes hidden.
When something is out of sight. Why? Because it is distant? Because it is far away.
If something is far away in the distance, can you see it clearly? No. And if it keeps going farther and farther away from you, eventually you will lose sight of it, you will not be able to see it anymore. This is what resume is.
So when my ears were a lot bigger, it is not hidden from your Lord, what mimis calida letting any weight of an atom anything that is even equivalent to an atom is not hidden from Allah because of being distant.
Just imagine if an atom is right before your eyes? Can you see it? No. Why? Because it's very small. It's very tiny. What do you have to do in order to be able to see it?
You need to get closer to it and closer and closer. How do you do that? With a microscope?
The closer you get, the better you're able to see it.
And the farther you are you are not able to see it. Why? Because of its small size because of its minute size. But what does Allah say? That even if there is a miss on the raw, something that is equivalent to the weight of an atom, even that is not too distant from Allah, he can see it. He knows about it.
We cannot see it with our naked eye. He can see it
It might be right before our eyes but still we cannot see it. And Allah subhanaw taala he's on his arch. But still he can see it
well my reservoir of love becoming mithali the rotten whether they call it a rotten is fill out the in the earth whatever cement nor in the sky.
Just imagine in the earth or the sky, Allah knows about every single atom
when a Sodom in zelicah nor is it smaller than that what is smaller than an atom?
tiny particles, what are they called? neutrons, protons and other things right? So those that are tinier than atoms even What does Allah say? Even that is not unknown to him.
Even that is not hidden from him.
Even that is not too far from him.
Without us a lot I mean, zydeco Allah Akbar even if it's greater than an atom
Even that is not too far from him in that except fee Khattab mo been in a tear record, what is this clear record?
The low hammer fools, meaning the details of everything are recorded there. And so no matter where a person is, no matter what work a person is engaged in, Allah is always observing him, always.
And if you notice of all the tasks that a person could be engaged in what is mentioned in particular over here,
reciting the Quran,
for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was his
response to responsibility. He was required to recite the Quran to people, isn't it so? But for us also, it is something that we must do, reciting the Quran
and the fact that the recitation of the Quran has been mentioned over here, what does it show the importance of this Act, the importance of this deed, and we need to check ourselves, how often do we recite the Quran? Really? How often do we recite the Quran? Even in a third grade class? How do we recite it? Because what does Allah say? That we are watching you? We are observing you, you are under the surveillance the observation of who? Allah subhanaw taala sometimes we recite the Quran out of fear of people that Oh, she's watching me. She's got her eyes on me.
She's gonna come and ask me why I'm not reading.
This is what we do generally. But what should we remember that Allah soprano God is watching, therefore, we should do it with extra care.
We should be extra careful, especially when we're reading the Quran.
You remember that your son is terrible, the lava and Nikita who was a lambda contrado for
that you worship Allah so you can see him and if you cannot see him, then remember that he is watching you. So what does it mean? You become extra careful when you're doing that action. So when you're reciting the Quran, we have to become extra careful that when we are memorizing the translation, when we are practicing that, that read, when we are taking our notes, when we're reading out, what should we remember that Allah subhanaw taala is watching. So we must pay attention and we must do it with our heart. Because Allah is watching.
He is a showerhead. Similarly, when we're writing the tests, what should we remember? That Allah is watching?
Allah is watching, even if other people are not watching. He knows what I am doing, where my eyes are going. If I'm copying from somewhere, if I'm exchanging my tests with someone, because Allah is watching,
and we must be extra careful, extra careful, because this is the matter of alone.
And in this ayah, Allah subhanaw taala mentions about the vastness of his knowledge, that so vast, all encompassing is his knowledge that Nothing escapes from it. Nothing at all.
Nothing escaped from his knowledge, whether it is something too small or something big. If an atom does not escape, then Where can the human being escape?
Where How is it possible?
We don't have an arm I have 59 that were in the home affected her laby layer level her Illa who and with him are the keys of the unseen, none knows them except him. We are level marfil battery, one battery, and he knows what is on the land and in the sea. What matters to me What are caught in a layer Aloha and not a leaf falls but that he knows it? Well, I have bettin feels automatic only when our auto been when I was in elaphiti turbo bean. And no grain is there within the darkness of the earth, and no moist or dry thing but that it is written in a clear record.
Everything is in a clear record including us.
So how can we escape?
Sometimes when we're reading the Quran, our mind is elsewhere? Are we thinking about incorrect things or we're understanding incorrectly? Or we're not relating it with ourselves? We're just thinking about other people. We don't pay much attention to it. We think okay, when is it going to be over? We take it as a burden on ourselves. What do we need to remember
that those watching
we need to see that if we are reciting the Quran, and Allah is watching. Then he knows as to what I have learned, what I have studied and how much I'm implementing.
How much I'm implementing because sometimes what happens we implement only because of the fear of people. Okay, she knows that now I have read this surah she knows and now I have read
This book so therefore I better be implementing for ally is watching and he knows how much of the Quran we have read.
And he is observing us that how much of it are we really implementing? So at the end of the day, Who should we be fearing almost a penalty?
If we sense that somebody is watching us will become so careful. We become so paranoid.
And we become so worried. We feel so awkward and we feel so like, tight that why are they looking at me? Why are they looking at me.
But then if we remember that Allah subhanaw taala is always watching us always, no matter what we're doing.
That should make us very careful. very alert.
ruin me normally,
in FY kita,
share your reflections.
Somebody just mentioned that in the previous if we learned about those alum, will love it and that is Salah. And our last pearls are the deltas, the other jadco mirliton, middle of Beco, that the invitation is there to the Auto Salon. But at the same time, we have been told as to what we're supposed to do to get there. The syllabus has been given.
Yes, when we realize that somebody is watching us, we do whatever we're doing better. Right? So if we realize that Allah is watching us, then we should bring accidents to our actions. This is what will bring a sign to the actions, which is why the definition of a sign is and there was a lot of Anakata.
Exactly. If we were careful about the fact that Allah is watching us, then we would stay away from anything that is wrong. You know, sometimes I see how people are online, the things that they post things that they say the words that they write, I cannot imagine that people can ever say such words, but they had the guts to type them. Perhaps we think that when we're saying people are listening, and out of the fear of people, we will not say those things. But when it comes to typing, we think nobody's watching. But we forget that it's public, and other people can see and if other people cannot see Allah is watching.
So we should be very careful about what we say what we type, what we write, what we share what we feel, because Allah is observing us all the time.
If we don't do something out of fear of people, then we should never do something out of the fear of Allah.
Exactly. It's the evidence that this Quran is definitely from Allah because who knew at the time about the existence of other and what is smaller than other in the Arabic language as the word is used for the tiniest thing, the smallest of things according to some very tiny ant, but according to others, tinier than that even
Allah subhanaw taala setting us there is something smaller than either as well.
You know, when somebody says you're special, you love them, like you become the best to them, right? And the last one to Allah He picked all of us to learn the Quran, you know, to become a helper, so
like another we know there are special people and others as we should always do everything that he says, And Allah Subhana, Allah loves the Prophet sallallahu sallam, so we should follow his way. And
he should be happy.
If somebody tells you, they've given you a big gift, it's going to benefit you. It's going to help you it's going to solve all your problems, don't you become happy.
If somebody gives you a kitchen tool, and they say that, oh, you're cutting and you're chopping will become easier, and your ironing will become easier, and your life will become easier. What do you think it's so nice of them.
We become so happy, we shared with other people. But at the same time, we have this Hold on, we don't show any happiness, we don't share this happiness with other people. If ever, we are talking about the climate, sometimes on the complaints.
Engineer, we're very careful who our friends are, like I was thinking about a person, let's see who is a model of something, she will not come and befriend somebody who's maybe Seibu Koran, or similar with us like now we are companions of the Quran, we will not be friending the opposite of that. And our companion in the grave is the Quran is a lot of data. And also another thing I was thinking about Quran is like antibiotics. If you miss one pill, you have to restart all over. And if a doctor says you have to go seven days a week, you have no choice but to go seven days a week. So whenever we start, we should always go back. And you see, if you're taking some kind of medication, if you're
using it, and you see the results, you never want to leave it, isn't it, you will take it because you know that if you don't take it, you're going to see the consequences. Right? There was ample people who are used to drinking tea every day. They don't miss their tea, because they know that if they mess it, they're going to have a headache. They won't have that energy. Right. So where do you get that energy from? Where do you get that boost from from the Quran.
And once you feel that, once you benefit from it, you will never want to borrow from it.
I was just thinking about how for, like worldly things. We look at so many advice columns, and so many magazines and books and people. Whereas this one does giving us all that advice in one book. So that's all we need for our lives if we just look at it.
I was thinking we were talking about on the Day of Judgment, the only thing that's going to be a value is your Eman. So as believers in this life, we should value our relationship with the Quran.
Thinking about the LSAT
and connecting with the other one also, let's say the Quran is better than everything that we get as a panel. So like, for instance, we you know, we get handbags and all that we don't want to take that with us.
So I'll just reflect this one and all the things I've got it I have to get rid of.
See, it doesn't mean that you get rid of everything and you don't use anything. You give importance to the near as much as as necessary. As much as it makes your life easy. But the moment you think that you get pleasure with the things of this world, and if you don't have them, then you're very sad. If you don't have a certain bag, you're like oh my god for me, everybody's carrying that bag except for me.
This is not right. Okay, because a believer will find contentment and pleasure and satisfaction in the Quran, not the things of this dunya not the things of this world.
When he will see the things of this world, it's not that he will find a lot of pleasure in them. When he reads the Quran, then he will be happy.
With the starting point, the very first IoT did they ask you about it and rationalize and was told to say yes, it is from my Lord. And it is the truth. Again, it shows adding on to a point where if you know the truth, and you're very confirmed and sure about it, we shall help you with
this one more thing about things of this world. No matter what you get, it will not make you happy. You know why?
Because something else will come up. Sooner or later it will become outdated. Right? You have it for a few months and you find out there's a newer version.
You find out Oh there is an older model.
So the things on dystonia cannot make you happy. They cannot No matter how much you have of it. It's tougher on that will make you happy. It's the Quran that will give you peace.
Okay, let's continue our lesson.
is number 62.
Allah in earlier Allah He unquestionably the friends of Allah, Lal homophone are lay him, there will be no fear concerning them, whether whom yours are known, nor will they grieve when on the Day of Judgment,
but who are these people? They're the Olia of Allah. They will not have any fear or any regrets any
grief on the day of judgment in the hereafter
because they spent their life not collecting the things of the world. But collecting something for the
earlier is a plural of worry. And who is really one who is
one who is close to you.
One who is a friend of yours.
So Olia Allah, the friends of Allah.
Who are the friends of Allah, those servants of Allah who are close to him.
Does it mean that perhaps they live in this world but spiritually they're elsewhere? Is that what the meaning of LDL lies?
Olia Allah, or normal human beings who live in this world? As a next I explains to us alladhina amanu What can we attack on? Now those people who are working in their
Allah in the earlier Allah, the friends of Allah meeting those who are close to Allah, how are they close to Allah? Because they know that
as we discussed earlier that through the Quran, you develop a friendship with
a strong connection with Allah.
So those people will become friends of Allah through the Quran, sincere believers, who have achieved closeness to Allah by observing His commands, by staying away from his prohibitions, those who are beloved to Allah, those who are chosen by Allah, the Koran, Lao from LA him, whatever homie Arsenal, they will have no fear, nor will they grieve in the hereafter.
Because Allah will save them from fear and he will also give them so much that they will have no grief left.
Because generally, why do people have any grief? Why? Because they have, they're suffering from a loss. They don't have what they want. They don't have what other people have. But Allah subhanaw taala will compensate them with that which is so much better, that they will not have any grief over what they did not have in the dunya.
But who are these, the only Allah
The only Allah Allah have been understood in two ways. First of all, those who are friends of Allah
and secondly, those who are friends to one another for the sake of Allah.
So only Allah or who those who befriended Allah and those who befriended for the sake of Allah
interseeded been Kathy it has been recorded, that if injury he has recorded correctly learn how he said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, in seminary where the Lahiri burden, yo bill to whom ambia was Shahada, that among the servants of Allah, there will be those whom the prophets and the martyrs will consider fortunate, who will consider them very fortunate, the prophets and even the martyrs. So it was said, Who are these are messenger of Allah, so we may love them? Who are these people? The prophets of Allah said and replied, home home on the hub boo filet, Minh lady and wailing, Waller and Serbian. These are people who loved one another for the sake of Allah, without
any other interest, like money, or kinship.
It's not that they befriended one another, so that they can benefit financially from each other.
Sometimes people befriend rich people why so that when they get gifts from them, they're also expensive gifts. This is not why they befriended them. This is not why they liked them, nor any kinship. It's not to have better relations, just in the worldly sense that they befriended one another, they befriended one another for the sake of rule only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.
That when they were friends with one another, they increased in their email, they helped one another, they supported one another, they increased one another in their obedience to a loss of penalty. So such people, the prophets and the martyrs, they will consider them very fortunate.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that their faces will be light, their faces will be light, bright, radiant, upon platforms of light.
So just imagine their faces are bright. And on top of that they're on platforms of light. The Sega person is in a spotlight in a huge crowd,
isn't the obvious to everybody. He is going to be seen by everyone and just imagine the face is radiant, he is on a platform of light even and they shall have no fear on that day, when fear will overcome other people.
When other people will be overcome by fear such people will have no fear nor shall they grieve when others will grieve.
So that hopefully you will know, what do we need to do then?
What do we need to do then? What do we learn from this ayah
that we need to befriend Allah? Because if you have the things of this world, they will only increase you in your fear. And in your husband,
you're always afraid for your things. What if this happens what if there's a scratch? What if it becomes outdated? What if somebody ruins it? What if it gets broken? What if it gets stolen? There's always this fear with the things of this world
and there's also has that Oh, it's becoming old. It's collecting dust or it has a scratch now.
It has a bad Mark now, the things of this world they can only bring you home and Herzen. But if you spend your time with the club, developing friendship with Allah soprano data, that will be a source of removing fear and hosen from you in this dunya and also in the FL in Serato ambia iO 103 we learn layer zunow hormonal physeal acabado what attallah cohoon mala iica to Heather yo como la de kuntum to her I don't they will not be grieved by the greatest terror and the angels will meet them saying, this is your day, which you have been promised.
