I was a bit let him initiate line of adjustment for him.
So number 116 sort of units will begin from Ayah number 94.
For instance, if you were shakin in any doubt, who is you over here, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and through him who is being addressed, who is being addressed through him, the people in general the people are being addressed through the prophets that are listed and just as the ayah in a Shoraka layer, button amulek was it expected with the profit sort of data center watershed? No. So to me was addressed other people in general
so content First of all, leverage the Prophet sallallahu Sallam through him, other people
certainly come to us. So when I say you, who would be you
the sermon, the listener, so you listener who was listening to this could earn right now. If you are Fisher King, in any doubt, shut from shame gasca doubt, uncertainty, movement from what a Laker we have sent down to you first, so ask alladhina recruitment kita Berman public, those people who read the book before you know
certainly the truth has come to you from your Lord, Salah takuna nominal mentoring, so you should never be among those who entertain doubts, those people who are doubtful
in this ayah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being directly addressed, and through him, others are also being addressed. Because it's not possible that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would ever be in doubt about the revelation that he was being given. Certainly, he had nothing.
So, why is this being said
indirectly the rest of the people are being addressed that if you are so you may refer to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and it may also refer to the summer they listening. So you listener who was listening to this code on right now, if you are Fisher King, in any doubt, check from Shane cough, cough, doubt uncertainty
about what we learned from watermelon concerning what so with your over here, the profit set alone is concerning what we have sent down on the profit side of that is seven. What is that? The Quran? Secondly, specifically in this context, the story that has been related earlier, like for example, in the previous ayat, we learned about the incident of masala Suleiman held on Ernest and I was to how they conveyed the message and what fit around it. So if you are in any doubt about any of the details of this incident, then what should you do?
Keep that doubt in your heart. Know, remove that doubt. How? By asking by finding out by doing some research? And how will you do that, that you ask those people who already know about this? And who are the people who know about musasa besides us besides the Muslims, it's the people of the book. It's the who the Minnesota
so fast and so ask and levena those people who Yoko Ono Yoko Ono from the rotators of Hamza cara, which is to read to recite, so as those people who read al Qaeda by the book which book is this,
the Torah and the Indian, the Scripture, mean public from before you.
In other words, ask the people of the book, and not just any person from the people of the book, but those who read the book, those who are knowledgeable of the book. Why ask them because they also have this knowledge. Even they're aware of this, in their scriptures, you will find the same incident similar details.
And secondly, ask them as well. Why because they know of the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam especially those people who have believed in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam at that time. So as those people look on the journal Hakuna Robic, certainly the truth has come to you from your Lord. What does the truth refer to? Everything that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was given, whether it is Prophethood, or it is revelation, anything that was given to him? It is the truth and it is from your Lord, fanatical and so you should never be minimum 13 of those who have dumped moon 13 is on the roof Lazarus meme or yet from the word media.
And media is also used for adult
basis basically it is used for such a doubt which leads to argumentation which leads to debate. So don't be those people who entertain doubt about the truth that has been sent by a lot
So in this ayah we learn that if a person ever has doubt about something, then what should you do? He should ask those people who know.
For example, we learned elsewhere in the Quran as well first Alou athletically in control autonomy as those people who know already if you don't know, if you're in doubt find out
and besides you should be certain that if this is from Allah soprano, if the Quran is from Allah, this is the book in which there is no doubt loudly Buffy. So you should be confident that because this is from Allah, it is 100% accurate it is 100% true. So you should definitely believe in it and have no doubt about it.
What about the cooling and do not be meaning never be meaner. ladina there will be IIT learn among those people who deny the Ayat of Allah.
Again, the prophets are a lot of Salaam is being addressed, but through him, others are indirectly being told that never be of those who deny the Ayat of Allah.
Don't be amongst those people for takuna Maha serene because then consequently you will be of those who are losers.
If a person denies the Ayat of Allah, then what is his ultimate end, he will be a loser in the dunya as well as the alpha, because in the hereafter he will be deprived of a loss of pleasure of Allah's mercy.
And this has been mentioned elsewhere in the Quran as well. For example, in sort of classes, I remember 86 we learned what Americans do, and you'll Park la Kalki taboo. illa rajmata never big fella takuna never hear or listen carefully. And you our profits are about us. And I'm we're not expecting that the book would be conveyed to you. You never expected that. You never imagined that the book would be revealed to you that you will be chosen as a messenger. But it is a mercy from your Lord. So do not be an assistant to who to the disbelievers. How, in the previous hour, what did we learn? Don't have any doubt. If a person begins to doubt in the scripture that Allah subhanaw
taala has given him and he does not remove that doubt. He does not develop that confidence in the work of a last panel down, then what is he doing? He's drifting away from it. He's drifting away from it. He is going closer to those people who have denied the book of Allah. And what's the ultimate end of that? That's such a person is elusive.
In alladhina Indeed, those people who have got are they in him, it became incumbent upon them, it became do upon them have gotten newsletters, how cough cough and help as you know is true and help us is when something becomes true. Meaning when something becomes necessary, when something must happen when something is due. So in letting a haircut is it has become incumbent upon them. What Kelly motto Baker the statement of your Lord, such people like me know they're never going to believe. Now what does it mean by the Kadima of your Lord which Kadima is a switch statement is this, this statement refers to this caliber refers to the caliber of either that such people are
going to be punished. Such people are going to end up in hellfire. These people are never going to believe because Allah subhanaw taala already knows that these people are not going to believe in they're going to end up in hellfire. So no matter what you show to them, no matter what you tell them they're never going to believe.
And remember earlier we learned that musala sam he prayed against you fit around and his people.
He prayed against them and he made a dua that Allah wish to Darla khudobin fillet Amina Hata Raja will allow him. So what Allah subhanaw taala say that your daughter has been accepted, your daughter has been granted.
So for such people, they are not going to believe at all now you may know nothing can benefit them.
Because when a person does not one to believe, when a person does not wish to believe, then no evidence no warning can benefit him.
We learnt earlier that federal was shown so many signs so many miracles. He accused musala cylinder what he was doing was magic. And he brought his magic to counter the miracles that masala said I'm sure but he was defeated. It turned against him. The people whom he was trying to stop from believing they're the ones who believed.
But if a person does not want to believe that nothing can benefit him nothing at all, like we learned in Surah, two comma number two that we're in euro Athan, you're able to wear your kulu sihon Muslim ID and if they see a miracle, if they see a clear sign, what are they going to do? They turn away and they say this is only magic.
There's only passing magic. This too will pass. There's nothing true about it. Similarly, we learned so little and am I number four will matter to him in a admin at or being in there Can one have more clean, and no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, except that they turn away from them. They don't pay any attention. So such people who don't even pay attention to the ad that are shown to them, they don't take a lesson from anything that is shown to them. How are they going to believe they're not going to believe
they're never going to believe.
When at home, even if it comes to them, what comes to them kulu I attend every I had your will or there been a lien until they see the painful punishment. Even if every sign is shown to them. Every miracle is presented before them. Every evidence is given to them. Still, they're not going to believe until yellow will adapt will leave until they see the painful punishment. Who does this remind you of
our own that our own was shown so many miracles, so many signs. But still, he did not believe until he was surrounded by the waves and he was about to turn hetero one or double early.
So over here, we see that such people they don't believe at the right time. They don't believe in a way that their Eman would benefit them because they believe at the time when they're about to die. And when a person is in such a state, his repentance, his belief does not benefit him at all.
We turn into little NRM 111 Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, anana Zenn la Mala Mala ekata What can NEMA who will motor or Hashanah la in color Shay in COBOL and mercan aluminio Illa Anisha Allah when I can acara home alone. And even if we had sent down unto them angels, they would see the angels and the dead had spoken to them. And we had gathered together all things before their very eyes. Still, these people would not have believed unless a loss of penalty world meaning you would have forced them to, but most of them behave ignorantly.
So what do we see that in order to believe in order to accept a man a person has to sacrifice and what is it that he has to sacrifice his ego.
And if a person is not willing to give that up, if a person is not willing to submit, then no matter what is shown to him, he is not going to accept until eventually he realizes that it's the end of his life, then perhaps he will believe, but some are so stubborn that even at that time, they don't believe I for example, you may have learned about the story of LBJ.
That how when he was killed at the Battle of others, before he was killed, he was injured, he was wounded. And he was about to die. And when someone was going to cut off his head to finish him off, he said make sure you cut off my head from very low so that when my head is put up, it's the highest, it's the tallest.
This is how arrogant he was that even at that time you refuse to believe even at that moment. So how can you roll or double at him for some people, or they will leave even Antonia does not make them believe
because their ego steps in their arrogance comes in.
If you look over here, it has been said that in a Latina Hakata it has become incumbent on them Kalamata Arabic. So many times people say, Okay, if a person does not believe that means he's never meant to believe it's been decreed for him. As I mentioned to you earlier, that sort of Yunus talks a lot about the issues of the issues of codatronca.
So many times people claim a loss of power, that Allah doesn't want that person to believe. So obviously, how is he going to believe he cannot believe, but what do we learn over here?
That Allah subhanaw taala offers guidance to them even. But still, if they don't believe whose fault is it? It's their own fault.
Because if they are shown every sign even every miracle, every evidence, still they don't believe. Why because of their arrogance. And the fact that it is decreed What does it show that Allah subhanaw taala is already aware of them.
He already knows about them, that no matter what they are shown, they're not going to be now just because he knows it doesn't mean that he has forced his knowledge upon them. Because Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge is not limited to the present Future Past. A multiplanetary is fully aware of everything so he knows that no matter what these people are shown, they're never going to believe
phenomena can accordion then has there not been a single city that believed for Navara her so it would benefit it Eman or her its belief. It's
In the oma units except the people of Eunice Isola
Lola, is health Deaf deep that lead? What does it mean? How to incite? It's when abroad? Okay, both are both that we have, which is to incite someone to encourage someone.
So, Lola gives the meaning of Hello, how come? Why not? Is this not the case? Is this not the situation?
And secondly, Lola is also understood as, why not? How come? So first of all, it is used for inciting someone. And secondly, it is used to inform to give public.
So, for Lola cannith Korean, how come? Why not? Was there even a single courier even a single town many people have a town that amanat that believed How come there was not even a single courier, a single people, a single nation that believed,
what does it mean by believed, meaning that believed at the right time, so that it's a man would benefit it.
So that it's the man would benefit it front of our house. So it benefited it? What benefited it, Emanuel? Its belief. When does Eman of a person benefit him? When he believes at the right time? When he doesn't believe at the point of death
when he does not believe at the point of death Rather, he believes before that.
Because when a person believes at such a time, then what happens he's able to practices even it shows that he is true to it. But if a person believes right when the punishment is on his face, then what does it mean? He's not believing in order to change himself. He's just believing in order to save himself.
So such demand is not beneficial. So Allah subhanaw taala says that there hasn't been even a single nation who believed in the right time, so that it's a man would benefit it for a man who had in the coma unit except the people of units. It was only the people of units.
What does it mean by this?
that the people have units artists are the only exception.
who believed at a time when their Eman benefited them? That lemme know, when they believed what happened. Kushner and who we removed from them are there but is he the punishment of humiliation where Phil highlighted donia in the life of this world, and when we remove that punishment for them, what happened? Well Matera now home and we benefited them. We let them enjoy it again until a time meaning they were not punished with a punishment that destroyed all of them completely. Rather, they were allowed to live for some more time, and they died their individual deaths.
Now the question is Who are the people of units or the center?
unit Sarah Sarah came 800 years before his eyes.
And he was sent to the Bani Israel as well. And the people of Eunice they lived in Mosul in Iraq.
And the people use our Salam. When user Hassan came to them, initially, they rejected they did not believe in him.
And Uncle Sam, he delivered the message them for a while, but he only faced denial.
So what happened? What did he do that he left them?
A message came from Allah subhanaw taala, that these people were going to be punished. So what did he do? He just said, you're going to be punished. That's it. I'm leaving, he was not allowed to leave at that time he left without permission.
Remember, earlier we have learned by for example, moves or his son.
When the punishment was to come to his people, he was told that he has to leave.
But Uncle Sam was not all that he actually he left by himself. And he left out of extreme anger at his people. As we learn incidental ambia number 87 that were there. nguni is the hyper mobile demon. And mentioned the man of the fish. Meaning Yunus artists and and when he went off in anger, when he went away from his people when he left them in anger, anger against against his people. So then what happened to him? What happened to him? He went, he got onto a ship, and there was a storm. And eventually the people decided that one person has to get off the ship in order for the ship to survive. So they drew lots and units on Islam's name kept coming and eventually, he was thrown off
of the ship and what happened? A fish swallowed him and he
remained in the belly of the fish for a while. And he constantly made the bar to las panatela de la Ilaha, Illa, anticipo Hanukkah, in new condominium. And then after a while, he was thrown out of the belly of the fish. And then he went back to his people.
Now, when you start insulin left, what happened to the people,
the people, they got worried, they got worried that our messenger has left and the punishment is going to descend upon us.
It is going to descend upon us. So what did they do, they began seeking forgiveness immediately.
But others said that no town has denied the truth, and then believed when they saw the punishment, and then their belief benefited them, with the exception of the people of unison,
when they lost their profit, and they thought that the punishment was close upon them, Allah sent through their hearts the desire to repent.
So they wore woolen fabrics, and they separated each animal from its offspring. Why? Because then the animals would also be in agony in pain, they would also be looking for their offspring. And this was in order to incite the mercy of a loss of penalty, to bring about the mercy of them.
And then they cried out to Allah subhanaw taala for 14 nights. And when Allah saw the truth in their hearts, and that they were sincere in their repentance and regrets, he removed the punishment from them.
So over here, a las panatela says that it was only the people of UNICEF, who believed at such a time, upon seeing the punishment upon knowing that the punishment was coming. But because they repented at that time, they were the only exception, and the punishment was removed from them.
But why was it removed from them, because their messenger had left,
had the messenger left with the permission of Allah, then the punishment would have certainly descended upon them. But because the messenger left without the permission of Allah, therefore, the Hojo was not established against those people. This is why the punishment did not descend upon them. Now a person may wonder that fit our own also repented when,
when he saw the punishment,
and the people of us are listening also, they repented when when they saw the punishment, as I mentioned to you, but other What did he say that they saw the punishment, and then they began repenting, that the punishment was very close to them, and they knew that they had very little time left. So that's when they were offended. So personally wonder that why that for their own offended, it was not accepted. And when these people were offended, it was accepted. What's the reason behind the first one, as I mentioned to you, because their messenger had left without the permission of Allah. The argument was not fully established against them.
Secondly, because fear only Toba when he saw the punishment, when he saw death overtaking him,
and these people, when did they repent, when they knew that the punishment was coming to them? When did they repent, when they were certain that the punishment was coming to them. So fit our own was like the person who is at the verge of death, the person who has seen the angel of death, and he is about to die within moments, and at that time, he repents such that was not accepted.
Whereas the people have units on Islam, they were like a person who was extremely ill, who thinks that he is going to die very soon, but he hasn't yet seen the injector. You understand? See the difference? For our own is like the person who is dying. He's unable to breathe, he has seen the angel of death. And at that time, he repents, such repentance does not benefit a person because remember the Hadees that Allah accepted oboe, obviously as long as he does not use it, as long as his breath is coming with ease.
And the third reason is that Allah subhanaw taala knows about the intentions of people. He knows about the intentions of people fit our own, as we discussed earlier, that when he did Toba when he said I believe there was no humidity.
Remember his statement? What did he say that I believe in the God in which the Bani Israel believer he didn't say, I believe in my Lord, the one who created me, I repent to him. No, there was no humanity, there was no submission. But the people of universalism, what did they do?
They came out the women, the children, the men, the young, the old, and they brought out even their animals out in the open. And they began seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. They humbled themselves before Allah. And when a person does that, he welcomes the mercy of Allah.
So these are some of the reasons as to why they're there. What was accepted and adobo others was not accepted when they repented at the time of the punishment.
When OSHA on a booger and if you
Your Lord will lamina shorty he believed who would believe manfield of the condo home, whoever is in the earth, all of them Jimmy Aaron altogether. If along world all the people of the earth would have believed collectively, not even one would be left out of
luck and make this happen. But if I undertook revanesse, then would you force people had dire khulumani until they become believers? What does it mean by this?
That if Allah wants, he can easily force people to become believers, he can easily force it upon them, that no one would have the choice to disbelief, not even one person.
But this is not the way of Allah. This is not the Sunnah of Allah. He allows freedom of choice, because this dunya is a test and where is peace? It is agenda. What do we want, that everyone would be believers, and everyone would be nice and caring and kind and truthful and sincere and honest. But this is only possible where in the hereafter in general dunya is a place of test. So Allah subhanaw taala saying over here, that if Allah wanted, he could have made everyone a believer by force, nobody would be allowed to disbelieve. But this is not the way of Allah.
Besides, if you look at it, if a person is forced to believe, then is that really belief? Was that really man? That's what forced demand is not real.
And if a law does not force then how can you force undertook realness then would you force the people if a law does not force and how can you force people, you cannot force people.
We learn elsewhere in the Quran as well, that Flm as a Latina amanu Alo Yasha Allahu la had a NASA Jumeirah have not been those people who believed he had known that had Allah willed, He could have guided all mankind. He could have but he does not force the people.
Therefore, we should also not force the people what is our duty, that we should constantly remind the people as we learned earlier, instead of the belcarra that lie across 18 there is no compulsion in religion. You cannot force you can only remind for that kid in them and Malecki your only reminder.
You're only the one who gives the reminder. woman can lead up sing and it is not for a soul. Meaning it is not allowed. It is not possible for any person and domina that it believes in levy in the law except by the permission of Allah. No person can believe except by the permission of Allah. So if a person has been given a man, then he should not take it as his own achievement.
He should not be given credit to himself. What is that a result of the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. Therefore he should be grateful to who? Allah Womack, aniline Epson and to mina ellaby, it Neela wider Allah register, and he puts the field either la de la or cologne upon those people who do not use their reason. Those people who do not use their minds. What does it mean by rich, rich is literally filled with dirt. And in the context, it refers to the filth of disbelief, the filth, of denial of, of shame.
And it also refers to punishment,
that those people who do not use their reason, those people who do not use their minds, what happens to them,
they remain in their coffin.
They don't get the trophy to believe they don't get the ability to accept a man.
So what can we learn in this ayah that a person can only accept a man if Allah allows for him?
Now again, a person might say, then whose fault is it? It's not the fault of a person. It would be a loss decision. He does not want someone to be guided he does not allow him. So how can you blame the person? No, read the next part of the where'd you either register either Latina layer cologne. Those people who do not use their mind who do not use their reason? To see the signs to ponder upon the verses to reflect on a man. And as a result, they don't accept a man that Allah does not even give them the ability to accept him, he does not force them. So we see that for a person to become a believer, two factors do things are necessary. What are they? First of all, a person's own desire.
What is it a person's own desire, his own effort, that when he strives himself, he uses his mind. He reflects he reads he studies he researches he finds out
and secondly, it's also the evening of Allah subhanaw taala, the permission of Allah subhanaw taala.
When both of these factors are there only then a person can become a believer only then a person can be on the right path. So two things are required a person's own desire and also the permission of a Muslim.
So, we see that Allah subhanaw taala sees how worthy how deserving a person is. Does he really deserve to have a man? If he does, because he shows that desire? Then Allah subhanaw taala grants him Allah gives it to him.
Pauline Zoo say look at Mother, what is that this similarity in the heavens? Well, Earth and the earth? In this ayah Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us how to use our mind how to use our reason, do accept email,
going into say look at use your mind, look at observe at manner facility one at all that is there in the heavens and the earth. There's so much out there so much creation. When I told Neil If, however, the versus the signs, they don't benefit, when new zero and even the warnings do not benefit who and Camila. You may know those people who do not believe
Allah subhanaw taala is commanding us in this ayah that we must reflect on the creation that isn't the heavens and India.
Because these are the signs that Allah subhanaw taala has placed which prove to a person about the existence of Allah, the power of Allah, the oneness of Allah.
The signs are there. So we should use our minds open up our eyes, reflect upon them and increasing our email.
However, what does Allah say that the signs are there, but everyone does not benefit? Everyone does not take heed
the Act and the news of the signs and the warnings, they do not benefit those people who do not believe
we don't answer to that yet. I number 21 and 22 that were feeling oddly a little more clean, that in the earth there are Signs for those people who are certain in faith wolfy and forsaken and even in yourselves, I found out too soon then Do you not see
just recently, somebody had sent an email with regards to the structures, the things that are lost penalty has created and how they show the power of a loss parameter. And she had mentioned about how we reflect on the mountains and the trees and, and big big structures. But if we just reflect on our own human bodies, if you just look at the bones, the anatomy of the human being, how perfect it is, how beautiful it is, how amazing it is, Sophia and physical even in yourselves reflect and think about it that how could all of this come into existence by itself? All of this perfection Where could it come from? So we are invited over here to reflect on the creation so that we can develop an
awareness we can increase in our event. However the signs are there, but everyone does not benefit. who those people who do not believe
for honey until Luna so are they waiting inlet except mithila a yummy Latina Holloman Cabo de him. Are they waiting except for like what occurred in the days of those who pass before them? Meaning the people who are not believing the people who are refusing to believe we're constantly denying, what are they waiting for? What is it that they're waiting for? are they waiting for their end as well? are they waiting for missler like similar to the a yam the days off days of who alladhina Holloman covering him of those people who passed before them.
The word a yam is a Florida yo and yo Miss day. But the plural of the word yo a yam this word is used for major historical events.
The Arabs use the word a young to refer to major historical events. So they're referred to them as a young days.
Even today, when you look at history, which dates Do you remember?
which dates Do you memorize or which dates are recorded when something major happened when a certain battle was fought when a particular country was conquered or so on and so forth.
So a yen refers to the major historical events and it also refers to the days when the people were destroyed.
So basically the days when the previous people were punished
By last winter.
So are they waiting for those same days to repeat? are they waiting for history to repeat itself? are they waiting that what happened to the people before them should happen to them as well? And then they will believe,
like Alfred around he refused to believe until the very last moment until the punishment descended upon them.
So these people who are not believing do they want the same thing to happen to them as well?
That they will not believe until they will see the punishment.
If that is the case, then such demand does not benefit a person at all. Sit down when he believed that the last moment his Eman did not benefit him. So all say to them frontally also keep waiting in me Morocco mentally mentally, I am with you of those who wait. Keep waiting. Meaning keep waiting for the punishment. Keep waiting for history to repeat itself. And I am also waiting. Let's see what your end is. And let's see what my end is. So in this ayah is a warning for those people who are delaying for those people who are procrastinating
that do not wait. Do not wait do what is important to you now.
So Madonna Jiro Susana, then we will save our messengers. When?
When the punishment comes, when the same history is repeated that the punishment descends on the people for their denial, then what is the way of a loss of Karnataka?
That he says his messengers
and who else one Medina Amano and those people who believe.
So in other words, when the punishment comes, who is it that is saved?
Only the messenger and those people who have believed in him
and as for those people who have not believed in the messenger, what happens to them? What happens to them? They're punished.
So someone una de la Solana one Latina, Amano, gallica Hakan Alena nongenomic many, likewise, it is incumbent upon us to rescue the believers to save the believers. It is a duty upon us it is a responsibility upon us that we must save the people of Amen. So what do we learn from this?
That those people who do not accept guidance? What does Allah decide for them? punishment
and those people who do believe what does Allah decide for them, that he protects them, he saves them. So at the coming of our that, it is only the believers who are saved. So if you want to be saved, then you have to believe before
