Working and it was said yeah oh Earth even or email Aki swallow your water drink your water.
Now when the punishment was executed those who were meant to be drowned were drowned and those were meant to be saved or saved. It was said here on Earth a blurry image Verizon newsletters bad memory
and burn your own is to swallow water. What does it mean, to swallow to drink to gulp down
and basically it is to take something down the throat with ease and with speed. So even very murky, drink your water, drink it with speed without creating any puddles and muddy patches.
So we see that the water was seeped in by the earth it was absorbed by the earth a blurry murky
were summer and all sky of calorie withhold the calories from the roof is off lamb or a color
and color is to become still it is to stop an action that one was doing that one was engaged in.
Just imagine a person is for example, writing
up a layer of query What does it mean stop it right now. Leave it withhold the cyst.
So just imagine the sky was pouring rain down water was coming down from the sky.
But the sky was told now stop that's it. No more rain. The Earth was told swallow your water and the sky was told stop pouring down.
Willy loman and the water subsided.
Lila is from New veterans lane yet Bob lane and lane is to shrink it is to become less to receive the decrease.
So we'll rely on Matt the water subsided. It shrank it decrease it receded.
And re is when something reduces itself and something becomes small in itself. So just imagine the water was everywhere, covering everything to the point that it had even drowned the mountains. So we'll leave it there the water subsided it reduced it stopped raining from the sky and the water was absorbed by the earth. So little mat the water subsided.
If you notice over here it has been said yeah, our blueberry murky that Earth swallow your water.
What does it mean by your water.
It has been said that your water means the water that came out from you, not the water that pour down from the sky.
So the water that came out of the earth went back into the earth and the water that had come down from the sky. It collected into rivers and lakes and so on and so forth.
The water that came out of the earth went back into the earth, a blurry murky,
murky your water in the water that came from you. And the water that came down from the sky What happened to that
it collected into rivers and streams and lakes and so on and so forth.
And according to others they are also very murky, murky. Your water meaning the water that is on you whether it came from inside you or whether it came from the sky, the earth was commanded to absorbing all of the water. We are somehow aka dairy, and the sky was taught to withhold the rain. And as a result, we'll leave and Matt the water subsided, the water receded will kill the oil.
And the matter was concluded. Which matter which is the matter of the destruction of the disbelievers. It was concluded it was carried out. The one who was supposed to drown was drowned. And the one who was supposed to be saved was saved locally.
And what happened to the ship was stolen. And it settled. is the word from the root letters seen? Well, yeah. And estaba Allah is to settle to become balance to become established on something. So what's the what? And it settled? Island Judy? upon Judy, what is Judy? judy is from Ireland, and it's the name of a mountain according to some it's a mountain near muslin in Northup Iraq.
So what's the weather lol Judy? The ship. It became balanced. It settled. Were on Mount Judy.
Notice the word is the words. It's past tense. What does that indicate that it completely stopped.
It completely stopped. It wasn't even shaking. It wasn't even moving.
You may wonder, why was the ship made to stop on a mountain?
Why on a mountain, think about why not on ground level? Why not in a river or in the sea, and then from there, they would sail to the shore, and they would get off the shore. Why was it made to settle on the peak of a mountain? Wouldn't that be more risky, more dangerous? Think about it.
Just remember that after a flood, all the water, just as all the water has been absorbed by the earth is the earth going to dry up immediately, it's going to take a while, it's going to take a while it's going to be muddy, it's going to be extremely unhygenic as well.
Because remember that after a flood, as the water has receded, as the water has gone away, the earth that is left behind, it's extremely wet. And at the same time, just imagine all the people and all the animals and all the creatures that have drowned in the water.
And with that, you may have heard that in recent floods, there have been so many waterborne diseases.
So when the ship was on the mountain, it gave them some time to get off the ship onto the mountain, but not on to the earth because the earth was still wet.
Somebody was telling me about the floods that were in Pakistan, that in some places, the bodies of people and animals and their stuff, their furniture, and cars, they got stuck in certain places, clogging up the water passage that they had to use dynamite to blow all of that up so that the water could continue to flow and end up in the sea.
So just imagine when the water has all gone, all the trash, all the debris and everything that must have been left on the earth. Because remember, this was not an ordinary flood, it was a huge flood.
It was very big, reaching up the height of the mountains. So as the water receded, as the water went away, there must have been a lot of trash left back on the surface of the earth.
And for that time was needed for it to go away for it to be consumed by the creatures or to be absorbed in by the earth for the surface of the earth to dry up. And because of that reason, the ship was made to come to a halt on the top of a mountain.
And also think about it, it shows how high the water was, how high the water level was,
that it was so high that the ship landed were on the peak of a mountain
and estimated as the water is sinking into the earth, it must have taken some time.
All of that water being absorbed by the earth being dried up by the sky, it must have taken some time.
So for that whole time, it wasn't possible that the animals and the birds and the human beings they would remain on the ship.
So with the ship settling on the mountain, it gave time to the people to get off the ship. So what's the what the other Judy and it settled on the Judy?
altar? We think about it. If the ship had settled on ground level, then what would happen? Eventually people would use the word they would break it up. But Allah subhanaw taala made it stop on the top of the mountain because he preserved the ship like that
because who's gonna go to the top of the mountain breaking pieces of the ship and bringing it down?
Like we learned instead of karma, that Willa katakana I attend that certainly we left it as an IRA as a sign a lot preserved the ship. Similarly interpret How can I 11 to 12 return in allama Dolma have a lack of Algeria lineage Allah Allah can tell you what and what are your Odin and warrior.
So that we make it an admonition for you and it might be retained by the retaining ears.
So the ship was preserved by it settling on the top of the mountain
will be the end it was that burden away curves for who will come is it mean for the wrongdoing people? bird bird literally means distance. And this is a Kadima of Dora of learner against someone that may they be aware and distanced from the mercy of burden little comienza may they be away and far removed from the mercy of Allah.
So there is a great lesson in this for those people who refuse the teachings of the messenger
that we see that those people who deny the messenger who oppose the messenger
Who are hostile to the messenger? All of them were wiped out.
A huge flood. All of them were wiped out and who was saved? Those people who believed in him. Those people who believe in him only they were saved.
When other new hullabaloo and new holiday Sam called out to his Lord for color, and then he said, Robbie oh my lord in Ebony, indeed my son min le from my family. My son is from my family with son is he referring to
the son who was drunk and according to some his name was Keenan gaff noon, I Elif new, Kenan
so new hires me door to a lot that Oh, Allah, my son was from my family. What in the world that will help? And indeed your promise is true.
which promises are you referring to?
That my family will be saved? You promised me that my family would be saved, you promised me that I should board my family members onto the ship.
What in the world that will help what under and you are common hacky mean, most just of those who judge
your judgment, your decision is the best. I don't have any objection to your decision that you made concerning my son, that you caused him to drown. However, you also made a promise to me.
So in this drop, he's not objecting, at the decision of he's wondering as to how his son was drowned, why he was drowned.
And although he knew that his son was not a believer,
or perhaps a son did not declare himself to be a disbeliever. But knew herself as a father, he did have compassion for his son. So he's saying that Oh, my Lord, my son was from my family, and your promise is true. And you are the most just of all judges.
It's not that I have an objection concerning your decision. I accept it. But what's the wisdom behind it?
But he said, Allah subhanaw taala responded that ya know, who all knew? In the who lay seminary like, indeed, he is not from your family?
Your son is not actually from your family?
What does it mean by this?
That, first of all, he is not from your family whom Allah promised to save.
He's not from your family, who Allah promised to save a lot promise to save only those people who have believed from your family, not everyone else, regardless of their belief. No, he's not from your family.
Secondly, they said that in who lays them in Alec, over here, means a hell of your dean,
the family of your dean,
the people who believed in you, they are your family members, and the people who did not believe in you, even if they were related to you by blood, still, they are not related to you.
Because there can be no relationship between the one who believes and the one who disbeliefs lay summon Alec, he is not from your family.
In no indeed he I'm alone a deed
other than righteous meaning he is not a person who had good deeds who perform good deeds.
What is meant by in Norman unreliable sila is that in Hulu or Amazon,
he was a possessor of such actions which are not righteous, he performed such deeds which are unrighteous which are not proper at all. And because of that reason, he ended up drowning in the Armada, later on.
It is also said that in the hormone illegal sorry, what this means is that this Dora that you have made the supplication that you have made about her son, this is an action that is not solid, it does not affect you, to make the offer someone who was punished by Allah
for letters only, so do not question me. My laser could be here in about that which you have no knowledge of, in ni or iluka Indeed, I admonish you, and akuna minal jadine, lest you be from those who are ignorant,
meaning don't ask such questions. Don't make such requests, because making such requests is a sign of ignorance.
So new harness Alam Allah He said, or be in the Rutabaga. Oh my Lord, I seek your refuge and as Anika that I should ask you, my laser DB here in that which I do not have knowledge about.
I seek your refuge from asking you about what I don't have knowledge about that. I am asking you
about something that I do not have correct knowledge of.
I don't want to do this again.
What a lot of fiddling and if you don't forgive me, what are how many and you have mercy upon me, a communal hi serene I will be of those who are losers.
So now when I suddenly realized that what he did was incorrect,
the prayer that he had made was not justified. It was not proper for him to make such a request.
And he sought forgiveness immediately. And we see that other more has said, um, he did the same thing as well.
That he said Robin has alumna info center, we're in north of Atlanta with a hammer, an akuna nemenhah City. So as soon as a person realizes his mistake he must earn in repentance. And this is exactly what the prophets did.
If you notice over here, new hires that I'm just asking about why his son was drowned.
Because apparently, his son may have been a believer, or at least he had a relationship with new highness and I'm a blood relationship.
How do we describe family, Father, Son, brother, sister, siblings, children, parents. That's how we understand a family. But in the eyes of Allah, a family is who those who are related by their religion,
because a person may be a spouse to another, maybe a child to another, maybe a sibling to the other. But if he is not a believer, then this relationship is not going to last. People are going to disown one another on the Day of Judgment.
What the Katara beam will, all relations are going to be cut off on that day. And that a person is not going to think okay, this is my brother, and this is my mother and this is my son. No.
So over here knew her lesson and when he prayed for his son is being reprimanded that you should not make the law for him because he's not a believer.
If he was a believer, then you had a right to pray for him. We learned earlier and through the Toba as well, that it's not permissible for the Prophet, or for the believers that they should make the offer who for those who have disbelieved, even if there are their closest relatives, even if there are their fathers and children and brothers, it's not permissible.
No, Harrison says What do you mean? But Allah subhanaw taala says that he was not of your family, he was not related to you. There may be a blood relationship, but look at his actions, he did not do good deeds. And because of that, there can be no relation between a believer and a non believer.
And now that he has met his end, you cannot pray to Allah seeking His forgiveness or seeking that things must be changed. So new Harrison sought a loss forgiveness and he repented for making such a mistake again.
That's the sort of the recitation of these verses.
Germany Gemini. Simoni.
further Halima Lysa cabbie
clearly it was said ya know who owner is built to be said I'm in disembark with security from us.
Meaning disembark from the ship, get down from the ship.
As you get down from the mountain or from the ship, get down with security with peace with Sadam from a loss of service human security, that he was saved from,
from the punishment, or from any kind of thing that could upset him or could cause difficulty for him. A bit beside me a minute.
And also Sam gives a meaning of greeting. What about Oh, Catherine alayka and blessings upon you. What does it mean by blessings? abundance?
Wha Catherine alayka and blessings upon you, where Allah and upon Omar men nations, which nations man from those who Baraka with you?
Oman is a Florida oma, what does it mean by oma over here?
There weren't nations literally with him. There were only a few animals, one male, one female,
and one male and Mr. Who elaborated only a few people had believed in him. So what does it mean by oma over here,
over here refers to the nations that will come about from those who are with you, the nations that will come about that will come into being from those who are with you, whether it is of people or it is of animals.
So Baraka, tener alayka, blessings upon you. And also blessings upon those who are with you. Oh, mama, mama Mark from those who are with you
know, hundreds of them. He descended from the ship. Allah subhanaw taala sent blessings upon him saying that get down from here, disembark from the ship, with bees, and with blessings. Just imagine, put yourself in that ship. Put yourself in that ship, that when you embark the ship, your house was there.
The people were there. businesses were there. There was work, there was opportunity, there was food, there was life. And when you get down from the ship, everything has been wiped out.
There is not a single soul on the surface of the earth, except for those who are on the ship right now with you.
All the animals, all the creatures, all the people, all the buildings, all the houses, all businesses, everything is wiped out.
And new hire the center when he descends over there. Just imagine his feelings, this Think about it. Your life is basically going to start again.
You have to start everything again. You have to build everything from scratch. So Allah subhanaw taala says, get down from the ship with peace from us, that you will be secure
and also bottlecap blessings upon you and remember Baraka, what does it mean? That when a person is able to benefit a lot from a blessing,
it may be less than its quantity, but the benefit is immense.
Like for example, you have only one glass of water and you're extremely thirsty
Extremely thirsty. And when you look at the glass of water, you don't think it can quench your thirst,
but you have only half a glass of water and you feel content and you give the other half to somebody else, and when they drink it, even their content, so, the quantity may be less, but the benefit is immense. This is what Baraka is.
And Baraka is also increase growth.
So, just imagine a few people, a few animals, a few supplies, but Allah subhanaw taala put Baraka in their efforts in their numbers in their progeny, which is why New Zealand was called the masani because he became the father of the rest of the creation of the rest of the people who came after him. Because it is said that it was from his children, that the rest of the human race, it continued. It was from his children to he became the father. So, but okay, I didn't alayka a lot came out to him.
And the people, the animals, the food, the supplies, the life was going to begin, it was great to have a fresh start. And Allah subhanaw taala bless them.
But okay, alayka, wireless, oma Midmark
well over one and nations, meaning and their other nations sumatera home soon we shall benefit them. So my am assumenda, then it will touch them from us, or they will leave a painful punishment. What does it show to us
that when the people were destroyed, who survived only the believers, but Allah subhanaw taala tells me, I don't think this is going to be the state forever.
Right now you're all believers. But soon there are going to be people amongst you who are going to disobey,
who are going to go astray. And they will meet the painful punishment at the end.
They will come in umbelliferae. This is of the news of the unseen, knew he had a Laker we inspire it to you, who is being addressed over here the prophets that have autism,
that this story, these verses, they are from the news of the ANC. And that is the plural of number. And number is what kind of news which gives you a theme, which gives certainty in which there is no lie. And it's also relevant, it's also important.
So this news, this account that you have just heard, it is accurate. There is no lie in it, there is nothing untrue in it.
And you can learn many lessons from it because it is relevant to you embed, and it's from the amber light of the unseen meaning it was unknown to you. It was unknown to your people.
It was completely unknown to you it was unknown to the people knew he had a lake and we have revealed it to you merkon that Allah Maha you did not know it until you went to Comic Con or your people.
Neither you knew of the story before. Nor did your people know of the story before.
Who does your people refer to? The people of Mecca? Min probably Heather before this meaning before the revelation of these if this story was unknown.
So perhaps this was the first time that the story of new Harrison was revealed. We have learned about the story of no carnism earlier as well. However, this was the first time that it was revealed. You did not know of it even your people did not know of it, fellas. So be patient
in the locker better Indeed, the end result is for who limit the pain for those people who have to
what does it mean by this phosphate? Why is this being said over here? first bit so be patient.
Because this is the lesson of the story.
That Be patient like no other his salon was patient
that he struggled for 950 years, and you have had to struggle for less than a decade thus far. So be patient, continue to do your work, don't give up in malarkey with a limited thing, because the end result. The good outcome is for who for those people who have done
in this dunya and also in the hereafter. And this is the second lesson of the story.
That ultimately who is successful, those people who fear Allah and ultimately who is a failure, the one who does not fear Allah. No matter who he is, no matter who is relatively as no matter who's friendly is
if a person does not fear Allah if a person does not amend his ways, then the good outcome is not in his favor. He is going to be a failure.
in the locker better limited.
So we see that there are many lessons that can be learned in the story. But the two that are mentioned over here are of patience. And also the fact that the good outcome is for those who are watching the person struggle to do develop the coin himself.
Now, why are these two things mentioned over here in particular,
because remember, the time when the pseudo was revealed, it was towards the end of the meccan period, where the opposition had grown very intense.
It was very, very intense. So at this time, the example of new horizon is given that look at how patient he was, you're also supposed to be patient, and look at how he was saved, you will also be saved. but be patient until the commendable lock comes in your favorite
will all listen to the recitation
I was just thinking that I was so focused that he didn't get lost in the in losing his depression that he was going through losing his son. But he was really focused on his alpha. And he said, what's
happening, and he was more focused on the cassara, that he would go on to judgment. And immediately when he made us what was the responsible response, that he gave him the positive, the good news of salami, minara. So immediately, you must focus on the loss in the depression of this word, or even with the depression.
Because many times it happens that a person loses one thing. And then he gets so lost in it. He's so depressed, because of the fact that he neglects his own
life. For example, if a parent loses a child, they will keep that loss with them for the rest of their lives, they will be depressed, they will be sad. And they will not realize what statements of ingratitude they may be uttering. And because of that they're incurring loss.
So I was really thinking about how like patience is like one of the key virtues that we really need, especially as Muslims, like we go through tests, whether it's a good or a bad test every single day. It depends on whether we have patience or not on how we succeed in that test. If we do have patience.
If you look at it the story of novellas and reflects a lot of patience. From the time that he began, to how long it took him to convey the message in answering the questions in refuting their objections, in building the ship, in tolerating a mockery. And being on the ship, that must be extremely difficult as well. People don't like going on ships. Why? Because they say it makes them feel sick. And just imagine, for so many days in a storm constantly, it requires a lot of patience. And then watching your own son die, and then being patient on that loss. So the lesson of the story is patience, the first will be patient.
And we were just discussing the importance of good company and not just some of the time that all the time because he did have good company at home. But that didn't affect him because the other bad company overpowered the good.
His own father was a profit.
So not just good company at school. But the rest of the time was when you were online or when we're reading a book or I were talking to a person, when we're hanging out with someone when we're going to a mall. What do we have to make sure that the company is righteous?
I was just thinking that how much love we had for his people and for his son back to the last minute we were still trying to save him. And it just goes to show you that unless somebody is once that can die and no matter how much you love them, no matter how much do you make for them until unless and until they initiate that within themselves. There's really nothing
That doesn't mean you should lose hope you still keep doing it until the very, very end.
do offer an excuse before you
know it until the last moment is calling his son to the last one.
The people who are close to us, they have more right upon us. So, yes, it takes time to wake them up for a budget and to get them to do what they're supposed to do. And sometimes you might feel that it's a waste of our time. But it requires a lot of patience. And remember that even in that there's
so don't give up, pre Ursula, and then come and wake them up. Because
I think that was also a lesson for me like I'm about no son, that he actually wasn't amongst the believers. And I think, because before I knew a sister that her father was an older man, and she was not she was not practicing at all. She was actually far from practicing. And then I remember thinking like, oh, my goodness, her father's and all that, well, how she didn't she she shouldn't she be good and you know, doing stuff, and then you realize that doesn't matter.
It's not necessary that if a person is very righteous, if he's a scholar, then the child the son, or the daughter is also in the same way. It's not necessary.
I was just talking to someone. After how many years he was giving Dawa. And the only thing he asked Allah was just about his son. And I right away when he realized when he asked that it was kind of wrong, he right away admit his fault, Allah Subhana Allah. So when we realize when we make false a mistake with pencil lines that are being arrogant, and incorrect, his son was related to wasn't it?
It was his own son, but still, the draw of the messenger of the father could not say.
And it's unfortunate that so many people, they will do whatever they want to, and they rely solely on intercession, when it comes to the metrics of the Day of Judgment, that on the Day of Judgment, the shofar of so and so will help me, but we see that the door of the messenger could not even help his own son, then how can we think that the shofar of so and so is guaranteed for us, it's not guaranteed, because it only happens by the permission of Allah. So when a person himself has not done what and good for himself, then the others prayers, the other is intercession is not of any use. You have to do it yourself.
hour for 900 years, and still he couldn't change his son. So it just shows us that we shouldn't measure our success by who his heart were able to change because that's not in our hands, we should just keep on doing it and enjoy everything with patients have an adn of large families the outcome, exactly. Because at the end of the day, what will be seen is what we did, the effort that we put in not just the results that we have produced, but the effort that we put in, which is why intention matters so much.
I was just thinking about how when we were discussing how that proper knowledge and I was told to make dua and start his journey with Bismillah. And in his journey with Bismillah. So it just goes to show that you don't usually remember Allah all time. So when you're traveling, you should start with peace of mind and with this will know that like, you know, now we have so many, so much means of transportation that we just take it for granted, like, please, there are so many like televisions, and all they do is watch, even cars, everyday we sit in the car, and we don't realize it's a blessing until it breaks down or something happens a car and it's not moving where we run out of gas
or something like that happens, then we realize that it was a blessing. So it's these actually big blessings that we have to be grateful for.
And if you think of it is being told to say Bismillah at the beginning and at the ending and also throughout, why at the beginning and at the end, because what was happening, the enemy was being destroyed. And at that time, they were not all okay Rejoice, and be happy and boast about it, that the enemy has been destroyed and you have become successful. Rather, be humble. Be grateful to Allah, Allah who is enabling you to be saved right now.
Many times what happens if we're victorious in a game, and we have defeated the other person, we feel very arrogant, very proud, to the point that we make the other person feel bad. But what do we see over here, humility at the beginning, throughout, and also at the end, because that shows gratitude for the blessing that a person has been given.
I was thinking that we should not depend on the teachings of our teachings toward others but we should also make the watch or law to change the hearts of everybody.
Because it's an art Turner change.
Remembering a was one of that in the beginning. And if you teach your children that will happen, they'll remember all that in the beginning. And so when they start driving, what will they do? gotta remember all that in the beginning and then they probably will think twice before going to someplace that is haram or doing something wrong. And my mom used to always say before leaving the house, that make your daughter before leaving the house every time you're like I'm stepping out the door. I always hear that. So even if as a child, we didn't follow it, that stays in your head and then you know later on in the future, you start making it so encourage your children to make it or do
something right before leaving the developers head from the beginning.
to chronicle long will be handy going to show the one that you that you learned the stockbroker wanted to
