00:00:02--> 00:00:10

Are you going to shape on over June Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim lesson number 117. So the tool will begin from number nine.

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

What are in other Kunal? insane I mean now.

00:00:16--> 00:00:33

And if we give men a taste of Mercy from Us, someone is our know her, and then we take it away, we withdraw it from him in Julio oosten, careful, indeed, he is despairing, and also ungrateful.

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

This is the typical behavior of people,

00:00:39--> 00:00:57

which is why Allah subhanaw taala says what are in the corner insane, insane is human being. And this is some genes. This is generally how people behave, that when a loss of data gives the human being a taste of His mercy.

00:00:58--> 00:01:06

Notice the word of the corner, at the corners on the roof. Notice that while cough, though, and though is to taste,

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

if you taste something, how long is the experience?

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

It's very short, for a few moments.

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

Just imagine you put something in your mouth to taste, and you take it out immediately. It's only for a few moments, isn't it.

00:01:24--> 00:01:55

And it's not even a full experience. If you just have to taste something and take it out, you don't exactly know how it is. You have to chew it, you have to swallow it. And then you really figure out how that particular food is that you're eating. So what are in coconut insan the word though over here it gives a sense of that Allah subhanaw taala gives him only a little bit, only a little experience, just to make him feel as to what that blessing is like

00:01:57--> 00:02:01

as to what that Mercy is like. We give him a taste of His mercy.

00:02:02--> 00:02:14

And what does he mean by mercy? mercy refers to different types of blessings. For example, health, wealth, worldly enjoyment, children.

00:02:15--> 00:02:50

So Allah subhanaw taala gives a taste of His mercy to who to the human being, then what happens? Summer then nazzer Naha, we pull it away. We take it away from him. NASA from newsletters Nunes, a NASA and NASA is to pull something away, when you have to put something away when the other is not willing to let it go. Right? When the other is holding on to it. So we pull it away. We take it away by force, because the human being If it was up to him, he would never let it go.

00:02:51--> 00:02:58

He would never want it to be over. He was enjoying it so much that he would never want to let go of it.

00:03:00--> 00:03:23

So Allah subhanaw taala takes it away from him. Then what happens to the human being what is his reaction? that inner who indeed he becomes layer oosten surely despairing. And he also becomes Corfu. Very ungrateful. Yeah. This is from the root letters. Yeah, Hamza seen Yes. And yes, is to despair. It is to give up all of something good.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

And your rules like law food you're doing these days, right.

00:03:30--> 00:03:46

So it's under structure of rule, which is one of the structures of mobila which gives a sense of one who is very despairing. One who gives up hope completely. He does not have any expectations left. He gives a book completely,

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

very despairing. He owes meaning he becomes completely despaired at the mercy of Allah.

00:03:55--> 00:04:25

He thinks that his life is over. He thinks that he'll never have any pleasure in his life again, just because that Rama was taken away from him. He thinks that his life is over. It's finished. He's the most unfortunate person on the face of the earth. us and he becomes careful as well. California scenario, fetters cafaro. And remember the word Cofer is used for disbelief and it's also used for in gratitude, circle for extremely ungrateful,

00:04:27--> 00:04:34

extremely ungrateful For what? For what he did enjoy, for what he did experience.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

What do we say in this ayah?

00:04:38--> 00:04:44

That Allah subhanaw taala gives blessings to the human beings and he also takes them away.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

Why? In order to test the person, that how does he behave? How does he react? Because in normal circumstances, when everything is fine, the true self, the true

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

herself of a person does not come forth. Because he can pretend

00:05:05--> 00:05:36

he can hide, he can fake. However, when a person is going through a difficulty, when a person is going through a traumatic situation, then what happens? His true inner self comes out. So Allah subhanaw taala gives blessings to human beings and he also takes them away, to test them that how do they react? Are they still grateful? Do they think that the pleasure of dystonia is the ultimate pleasure? And the loss of this dunya is the ultimate loss? How do they behave?

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

Typically, the behavior of people in these situations is that they become extremely despairing and extremely ungrateful for what they did enjoy.

00:05:46--> 00:05:58

Now, again, reflecting on the word, though, whether in honor, the fact is that no matter what a person enjoys in this life, the experience is short lived. The experience is not long at all.

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

If you think about it, anything that you're enjoying,

00:06:05--> 00:06:36

anything that you could enjoy, for example, a food that you could be eating, or, for example, you're on a ride, you're in the park, you're on a ride, for how many moments will you enjoy? for a few moments, isn't it like, for example, you start eating a delicious dessert, the first few bites, very amazing. And then after that, what happens? You get used to it, isn't it. So the life of pleasure of the blessings of this world is short lived.

00:06:37--> 00:06:46

It is very short. And if you think of it, the blessings as well of this dunya even they're very shortly, you cannot have them forever.

00:06:47--> 00:07:21

If you do have them, you cannot enjoy them forever. You get used to it, eventually the pleasure goes away. And any blessing, eventually it comes to an end. For example, a person is young, his youthfulness turns into old age. Similarly, a person has children, eventually they leave or they pass away in a person's own life. Similarly, a person is healthy, but he becomes ill. A person has wealth, but he suffers from some financial loss. He has a very good job. But one day he goes to work only to find out that he's been laid off.

00:07:22--> 00:07:30

So this is how blessings are taken away from us. But a person may wonder, why does the law take blessings away from us? Why?

00:07:31--> 00:07:44

As I mentioned to you earlier, first of all, because it's a test Allah subhanaw taala tests us how do we behave? And secondly, if you think of it, those blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given to us they belong to him anyway.

00:07:45--> 00:07:51

They have been given to us as an Amana as a trust. Remember the story of homeschooling

00:07:53--> 00:07:58

that how when her child passed away, and her husband came home, what did she say?

00:07:59--> 00:08:15

That what do you think about someone who has given you an Amana? When they demand it? Should it be returned to them? So basically, she considered her child as an Amana from Allah subhanaw taala. And when her child passed away, she took that as someone taking their Amana back.

00:08:17--> 00:08:25

So the fact is that the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gives us, they are an Amana. They are not ours.

00:08:26--> 00:08:43

They're not ours, which is why Allah says whether in an opponent in Santa Mina, Rama, 10 minutes from us, it comes from him, and someone is there and he can take it away whenever he wants, because it belongs to him. It's not ours. It's been given to us for some time.

00:08:44--> 00:09:08

The fact is that many people, they think that the pleasure of this dunya is the ultimate pleasure, which is why when it's taken away from them, they think that it's a complete loss. They're the most unfortunate ones. Whereas the fact is, that the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gives to us, they're only glimpses of the pleasure that awaits in the hereafter.

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

They're only glimpses.

00:09:12--> 00:09:19

Similarly, the suffering that a person goes through in this dunya that's only a glimpse of what a person could suffer in hellfire.

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

So the blessings of the dunya they're not permanent anyway.

00:09:25--> 00:09:39

But a person who thinks that this is the ultimate pleasure or this is the ultimate loss, when a blessing is taken away from him, he becomes despaired. And when he is suffering from a difficulty, he thinks that he's very unfortunate

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

in sort of use of it number 87. We learn in the who lay a summit Hello, hello, he elanco McAfee rule.

00:09:49--> 00:09:56

Indeed, no and despairs. No one despairs of relief from Allah except to the disbelieving people.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The people who don't believe in that

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

After it is them, who become despaired of the mercy of Allah,

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

who become despaired of relief from Allah, because they think their problems will never be over.

00:10:12--> 00:10:22

And in the hula Olsen kofoed, this is exactly what it means he owes a person gives a pub completely, that the difficulty will ever be over, or that he will ever get that blessing again.

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

He gives up completely, he thinks it's the end of his life.

00:10:27--> 00:10:36

He falls into depression, he wants to commit suicide, just because he lost one child. He doesn't think about the other children that are still alive.

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

Just because he has lost his job. He doesn't think that at least he's happy with his wife and with his children.

00:10:44--> 00:11:06

So this is what happens when a person loses only one blessing. He forgets about all the other blessings that he's surrounded with. This is what he means and this is what carpool means he becomes so ungrateful for the other blessings that he still has, that he still enjoys. So it's about how we look at the situations that we go through.

00:11:07--> 00:11:29

Do we look at the cup that is empty? That is half empty? Or cup as hafele? It's up to us? How do we look at it? And a believer is always hopeful. At the greatest loss even what does he think that I saw a boon and you believe in a higher minha in our in our abena, Raleigh Boone Soto column number 32,

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

that perhaps our Lord will substitute for us one that is better than it.

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

This is being hopeful that Okay, I have lost one thing today. You never know, Allah may give me something much better than that tomorrow.

00:11:44--> 00:11:55

I have to be hopeful indeed we are toward our Lord desires, meaning Allah subhanaw taala can give us anything, anything, and we are hopeful From who? Allah.

00:11:56--> 00:12:06

So when a blessing is taken away from a person, what should he think? How should we behave? That Alhamdulillah at least I have so many other things.

00:12:07--> 00:12:18

If one thing has been taken away from me, at least I have so many other things. Don't focus on the problems, focus on what the blessings that you still have.

00:12:19--> 00:12:28

Similarly, when a blessing is taken away, what should a person think that perhaps alone will give me something much better? So why should I waste my reward?

00:12:29--> 00:12:43

Well, in an Surely if other canal, who we make him days, we make him experience nirma a fever, a blessing, Baradar after hardship,

00:12:44--> 00:13:13

which hardship that must settle that had touched him. We make him experience of blessing after a hardship that he was suffering from. Then what does he do? What is his behavior? layer? kulana surely he definitely says that they have a say to me, that times have left me bad times are over now they're gone. In the hula fairy home for her. Indeed, he is exalted. And he also becomes boastful.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

This is another situation through which a las panatela tests people

00:13:20--> 00:13:41

that wonder in other corner who Norma Norma is a blessing the word nirma is also from the same route. But how is Norma different from Norma? Norma is basically such a blessing, whose effect is visible on a person. What kind of a blessing is whose effect is visible on a person, it can be seen on a person.

00:13:42--> 00:13:46

And it's also obvious to him, he clearly sees it as a blessing.

00:13:48--> 00:14:20

Like for example, if a person has eyes that function, he has a body that is fine. Generally, people don't consider that as a blessing. They take it for granted. Correct. But if a person is given a lot of money $10,000 $50,000 he will consider that as a blessing. He will really take it as a blessing. He will not take it for granted. Right? So Norma is such a blessing that is obvious to a person he considers it to be a blessing. Its effect is there on the person, you can see it.

00:14:21--> 00:14:34

So if we make him experience a blessing, rather than raw after some hardship, what could a hardship be like for example, disease, poverty, insecurity of life,

00:14:35--> 00:14:53

insecurity of his wealth. So we give him a blessing after hardship that Masato that had touched him. What is his reaction that layer kulana surely he will definitely say that the habit it went to it, what went to it, I say, so you add is a Florida senior.

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

And what is the year, that which is bad that which is evil, in and of itself, also, and it's gone?

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

sequence, it makes a person said, and over here I say he adds refers to bad times problems.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

all my problems are over

00:15:11--> 00:15:45

there, they say attorney, all my problems are over. And he becomes very exalted and he begins to boast. Like, for example, people think that if they will get money, all their problems will be over. Isn't this the other day I mentioned to you about this website that I have seen in which you can give a small loans and people can use them to build their businesses, etc. So, it was mentioned about so many people that how when they were given loans, all their problems had gone. I was wondering, really, we just money all your problems will go away? How is it possible?

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

It's not possible.

00:15:48--> 00:16:11

Maybe your financial problems will go away, however, you will still suffer in some way or the other because this life is full of tests. But what does he think that just because I have money, just because I have this blessing. This is a solution to all the problems in my life. There was a attorney and he becomes very happy. And he begins to show off the word for who is from the rooms letters fell hora.

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

And for who is one who shows off.

00:16:17--> 00:16:25

Basically, the word for hold from the same root is the word for heart. And for heart is used for Potter's clay, the clay with which pottery is made.

00:16:26--> 00:16:51

So, if you ever knock at like for example, a ball or a vessel, that is of battery, then what happens? A sound comes out of it, isn't it it knocks. So for who is one whom you just touch him slightly, you just knock at him slightly, and he will start talking about himself. You just mentioned one thing, and he will begin boasting.

00:16:52--> 00:17:09

He will say one thing after the other showing off. So he becomes funny. And he also becomes very boastful. Why? Why does he think like this, because to him, the pleasures, and the enjoyment of this dunya is the ultimate pleasure. It's the ultimate enjoyment.

00:17:10--> 00:17:26

And because of that, he becomes proud, he begins to show off and he forgets that it is a law who removed that difficulty. He completely forgets those difficulties that he was suffering from previously. And this type of attitude, it actually leads to disobedience to homeless pants.

00:17:27--> 00:17:38

Because many times a person may be very good under normal circumstances. But at the times of happiness, what happens he breaks all bones. For example,

00:17:39--> 00:17:54

a woman or a man, there could be very righteous, very obedient, very good, their whole life. But as soon as the wedding day comes, you don't recognize them. You don't. You never knew that person actually listened to music when you go to their wedding and you see music blasting.

00:17:55--> 00:18:16

Really, it's shocking. This is funny, and for whom that a person becomes so forgetful of Allah, that he's given a good spouse, he's given a lot of money, he's given the opportunity to celebrate his wedding. But instead of being grateful to Allah, what does he do? He becomes ungrateful. He begins to disobey Allah subhanaw taala.

00:18:17--> 00:18:45

Now personally wonder that what is the problem in saying that? The Embassy adore me? Isn't that a good thing? That if a person gets a blessing, he says, Okay, my problems are over. My bad days are over isn't this positive thinking? Shouldn't this be appreciated? Think about it. If a person who is suffering from a problem, and all those problems are gone, or he's given something anything's they ever say to our knee, this is positive nature, isn't it?

00:18:46--> 00:19:17

So this should be appreciated, but we see it's not being appreciated over here. Similarly, he becomes very, he becomes happy if a person becomes happy on the receiver of blessings at something good. Correct. But this is not being mentioned over here in the positive sense. Why? Because when he says my problems are gone, when he says it's over, finally, he is not acknowledging that this is a blessing from Allah, that Allah is the one who took my problems away.

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

He's not acknowledging that. Because if he did, he would have praised the loss of

00:19:24--> 00:19:31

heroes that and hamdulillah. Finally Alhamdulillah, he would have offered some kind of gratitude.

00:19:33--> 00:19:51

Similarly, he's not happy in the sense of being grateful. But rather he is happy in the sense of being arrogant and showing off, not turning to Allah with gratitude, rather, turning away from Allah in disobedience. This is why this kind of behavior is not appreciated.

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

So what should we do then? When Allah subhanaw taala takes the problem away from us? How should we behave? How should we read

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

What's the lesson in this ayah? For us?

00:20:04--> 00:20:04

gratitude,

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

gratitude. And what does it mean by gratitude that whatever blessings we have been given, we realize we acknowledge the fact that they are from Allah.

00:20:15--> 00:20:21

And at the same time, we remember that we did not have this before, Allah gave it to us.

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

Because typically what happens when a person is given a blessing, he puts whatever happened in his life in the past, it's as if it never happened.

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

And because of that, he's not grateful for the blessing that he's enjoying.

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

Life. For example, a person does not have children for many years, 567 10 years, they don't have children.

00:20:43--> 00:21:11

Now, finally, they have a child. And they completely forget the time that they spent praying to Allah asking him for a child, they completely forget about it, they leave that behind, they close that chapter of their lives, and they start enjoying their child, etc, etc. This kind of behavior is incorrect, because the person should remember the time when he did not have it, not to that he thinks negatively, but so that he can be more grateful for what he has been given.

00:21:12--> 00:21:22

So that he can show that yes, Allah, I need you. This is called a Buddha. This is showing servitude to Allah, that Allah I'm so dependent on you, that you gave it to me

00:21:24--> 00:21:27

in Molina suburu, except for those people who are patient.

00:21:28--> 00:21:40

Except this is an exception from what, from the two behaviors that have been mentioned previously. What was the first behavior, that when a blessing is taken away, a person becomes very despairing.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

And secondly, when a blessing is given, a person thinks all his problems are over.

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

An exception from this behavior is a rule. Elena suburu. Those people who are patient,

00:21:55--> 00:22:09

when are they patient? When they're struck with some difficulty? They remain patient. They don't despair off the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. Well, I mean, asylee had, and they also perform righteous deeds when, when they're given the blessing.

00:22:11--> 00:22:30

So suburu when, when the blessing is taken away from them, when they're suffering from the law, where Amina solly had when, when they're given some narrow mat when they're given some Rama, Allah, Ecuador's law, for them, Muffy Middleton, forgiveness agilone Kabir and also a great reward.

00:22:31--> 00:22:51

Why forgiveness, because they were patient at the time of difficulty. And why eduroam Kabir because they continued in their animals earlier, when they were given blessings. So for them is more Farah, and also a drone can be also a great reward.

00:22:53--> 00:23:00

And if you look at it, someone has been mentioned over here, what the submarine helps enough to control yourself.

00:23:01--> 00:23:14

So those people who control themselves from negative reaction in times of hardship, also in times of ease and plentitude.

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

What could a negative reaction be in times of hardship

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

that a person begins to despair?

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

So suffer is control yourself from that?

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

that a person becomes ungrateful? What the sovereign mean control yourself?

00:23:31--> 00:23:38

In times of ease and blessing and plentitude. What does it mean by controlling oneself, that a person does not begin to show off

00:23:39--> 00:23:43

that a person does not become arrogant, this is controlling yourself.

00:23:45--> 00:23:54

So those people who are patient, because they realize that whatever they have is a temporary phase, it's not forever.

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

If I have a blessing, I have it for some time.

00:23:58--> 00:24:13

There is no point in being arrogant, there is no point in showing up. If I've been given a test, if I'm going through a difficulty even that is with me temporarily. So there is no point in giving up hope. There is no point in not doing suffer and wasting my energy.

00:24:14--> 00:24:56

So he saves himself from a negative reaction. And this is why for such a person is forgiveness and also eduroam can be the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that by he in whose hand is my soul, no worry, no calamity, or distress or illness or grief strikes a believer, even the prick of a thorn, except that Allah will expiate his sense for him. Why? Because of his suffering, because of his patients, and because of that, he will have more filler. This is how Mo Farah is that when a person is patient, at the time of difficulty alasa pilot Allah forgives his sins because of that.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

And anything that afflicts a believer

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

It is a source of reward for him if he is patient.

00:25:04--> 00:25:15

So what does this ayah show to us? The reason as to why a las panatela gives us blessings and he takes them away from us. Why? What's that reason?

00:25:18--> 00:25:31

To test us, because through such situations, either a person is going to be forgiven, and he's going to be given a different COVID. Or he's going to end up with more anger of a loss

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

and losing the goodies that he did perform.

00:25:35--> 00:26:07

Also, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that by he in whose hand is my soul, a lot does not decrease any matter for the believer except that it is good for him. If any blessing befalls him, he is grateful to Allah and that is good for him. And if any harm comes to him, he is patient and that is good for him. And this is exclusively for the believer. What What is exclusively for the believer, this type of reaction, in times of blessing and also in times of hardship.
