is it the forehead and it's also used for the forelock meaning the hair that is at the front of the head,
the hair that is right above the forehead.

So, there is no creature except that Allah has its forelock in his hands, what does it mean by this?
This means that Allah has full control, full possession, full authority over every single creature. And remember the meaning of that, but what does it apply to?
Every single creature that moves by itself from the biggest to the smallest, from that which can be seen by the naked eye and that which cannot be seen by the naked eye?

arrogance, pride, but Allah He is an excellent author was to leave that alone, he has power over them, he is not unjust to any of them.
He is not unfair to any of them.
in Nairobi, and also to Mr. P.
We can also understand the statement as in Nairobi, Allah Salatu was the theme that in Nairobi yeah don't do
that my Lord He guides he directs to the straight path
the way of my lord is the right way.

For interval No, but if you alternately
for interval low, the one low with one that generally is translated as they turned away,
This is generally translated as they turn away
okay. However, this word the word low is an abbreviation of that our low
This is an abbreviation of data will know if you alternately
you alternately and because of this reason, this idea has been understood in two ways.
That first of all for interview Hello, if you alternately and secondly, if they turn away.
So you may find these translations in Quran and some you might find you alternate and others you might find the eternally.
If we take the meaning of if you alternate, then who is speaking over here, who there isn't
that who there is, and I'm continuing that if you turn away, don't listen to me don't accept my message, for the ability to come also to be here, then I have conveyed to you the message that I was sent with.
Secondly, if we take this as if they turn away, then this isn't addressed to the prophets or the lawyers.
So for intervalo, for the ability to come out or sell to be, I have conveyed to you what I was sent with la come to you, meaning I have done my job, I have performed my duty, were stuffily for a B, and He will give succession who will give succession or be my Lord,
to who to a government to a people, which people that are later competitor other than you.
In other words, he is hinting over here. Indirectly he is saying that if you don't believe if you don't turn to Allah, and you turn away from him, then sooner or later he is going to replace you with someone else. Your time is going to expire. So he's hinting the punishment.
That if you don't believe the punishment is going to descend upon you. Where's the cliff Robbie Coleman?
Whenever the Runa who Shay and you cannot harm him, anything at all. You cannot harm him at all. For what for having replaced you. Meaning you cannot take revenge.
You cannot take revenge if a law replaces you with another people. If he punishes you brings about another nation in your place. Another creation, another generation. Can you take revenge from Allah? No, you cannot. You're finished. You're done.
You cannot harm him at all. And secondly, whether the Luna who Cheyenne meaning presently right now, by your doing ship, you cannot harm Allah.
You cannot harm Allah.
in Nairobi indeed, my lord Allah Galicia in Hatfield. He is a guardian over everything.
Hatfield is from the root letters have a lot from the word hits, which is to protect, to preserve, to guard something from being wasted from external dangers. So my lord is a guardian is a preserver. He takes care of everything. He watches everything.
And amongst the things that he watches is your actions.
He's observing all your actions and what are you doing? Your behavior is not hidden from him, then how can you harm him?
How can you avoid him?
So in this ayah, who are listening is warning the people. He's warning the people, that if you don't listen to my message, if you don't listen to what I'm delivering to you, then remember that I've done my job. And once the messenger has done his job, then what happens? If the people don't accept, then the punishment is going to descend upon them. So he's hinting to them, that Allah will replace you with another people. Because Allah is not impressed by the material strength that you possess, by the lofty buildings that you have constructed.
Because Allah is the one who gave these to you in the first place. He does not care about all that you have amassed all that you have done, he doesn't care about that. What he wants from you is that you fulfill your purpose in life. If you don't fulfill that, then you are garbage, then you are useless, and he does not need you. And if you try to take revenge, he cannot harm Allah. You will only harm yourself.
What a magic. I'm Luna. And then when our command came with a major I'm Luna and when our command came which command the command for the destruction of these people.
So what does it show to us? that despite the fact that who there listen I'm delivered the message to them, they did not accept they did not believe his message was so clear, so evident, but still they did not accept.
So what happened in the last panel data centers command of punishment of these people. What happened? Medina who then we rescued we saved who'd Ernestina? We saved him from the punishment. Who else did we save? One Latina M and Omar who, and those people who believed with him, mean those people who had believed along with him even they were saved?
By Rama, demon as a mercy with Mercy from Us? What is this mercy referring to
guidance that because of the mercy that we have bestowed on them,
that because these people had accepted the guidance, this is why they were saved.
When a Jaina home, and we save them, I mean, are they having to leave from a severe punishment?
So this shows to us that the punishment that we'll send it upon these people was a relief.
something that is very tough, very harsh, very severe.
Basically, credit law is used for the thickness of something.
The thickness of something, when something is thick, just imagine, you know, a mixture that is very thick, and it's consistency, it's so difficult to move it, it's so difficult to use it to apply it.
And if it's runny, it's very easy to clean it, it's very easy to use it.
So when something is thick, and it's consistency, it's very difficult to use.
So Holly is is that wishes thick, tough, harsh, severe, it's not smooth at all very rough.
So we save them from a severe punishment.
The question is, what is the severe punishment that was sent upon these people?
We learned from various Ayat of the Koran, that the punishment that was sent upon these people was extremely fierce wind, strong winds, which were made to blow on these people. And this wind, it was extremely noisy, extremely chilly, very cold. And it wasn't just that these winds were blowing up on them for an hour or two for a day or two, but rather for many, many days and nights.
Just imagine yourself outside in the extreme cold weather Windchill.
Just imagine what would you do? You don't want to be outside even
if you have to go you will avoid that trip if it's extremely windy. And if you really need to go then you will run from your house to your car. You cannot even think about walking. Can you think about sitting outside? Can you think about eating outside? Can you think about living outside? No, you cannot. But this wind was blowing upon them for seven days and nights until every single one of them was finished. Constantly this fierce wind was blowing.
Many times when it's extremely windy, what happens recently, with extremely strong winds of building the roof of it came flying off.
Trees, they're fallen on the ground. We see that traffic lights even they haven't blown away.
Huge spinners they're falling on the ground. And this wind is just what we see. Imagine the wind that was sent upon them as a punishment. Just imagine.
We don't it's not that helpful. I number six to eight, that what am I doing for overly kobori hen saucer in it, and as far as they were destroyed by a screaming, screaming violent wind, Sahara la him sobre la Ellyn with her many at a Yemen her Suman
which Allah imposed upon them for seven nights and eight days in succession without a break. seven nights and eight days, federal coma fee has sadara unknown urges are not in hardware. So you would see the people there in fallen as if they were hollow trunks of palm trees. Because remember, they were physically very strong, but each and every single one of them was picked up and thrown to the ground for health or Allah, human bacteria, then do you see of them any remains? Meaning Do you see any of them alive today?
Similarly, we don't answer to that yet I have 41 in 42, that will fear it also. Now I lay him as the healer theme that in the people of God is assigned when we sent it into them the barren wind.
What was his wind, the barren wind,
meaning some winds, they bring rain clouds, right? They spread the pollen, and because of that, you know, their life increases. But this wind, it was barren, it did not bring any life at all.
mirtha Roman Shea in Atlanta, la a ledger and it took a while I mean, it left nothing of what it came upon, but that it made it like disintegrated ruins.
Similarly, we learn into little corner, I never 20 about this wind, that 10 zero NASA, it would extract the people it would pull out the people if somebody was hiding behind something hiding inside something this wind was so fierce, it would pick up the people from where they were hiding. It would extract 10 zero NASA unknown ridges and nothing was buried, as if there were trunks of palm trees that are uprooted.
This is the fierce wind that was blowing against them, in order to punish them to everyone was destroyed except to the believers because Allah subhanaw taala says over here in the Jaina
what will God and that is odd. Meaning This is the people of
delta refers to their cabela their tribe, their nation,
and tilaka can also refer to their remnants. Meaning go and see the place where they used to live. That is art. This is what is left of them.
This is art. You go and see where they used to live. Look at their ruins. Look at the place that they have populated.
And see. Do you see any of them alive today?
What tell God this is our This is their end, this is their consequence. Look at them. Just had to be a Atilla beam. What did they do? They rejected the signs of their Lord jehadi from the newsletters Jean had that.
And Johanna is to refuse something after having knowledge of it.
After having knowledge of when somebody learns about something, and still he rejected still he refuses to accept that this is what Jehovah is.
And Jehovah is also deny something with the tongue that the heart accepts.
In your heart, you know, it's right. But Jehovah out of arrogance at first says no, no, I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to accept it. What you're saying is wrong. This is what Jehovah is. So what did they do jihad to be it?
They denied the ayat of their Lord. It wasn't that they did not know. They knew. It wasn't that they did not understand. They understood.
It wasn't that they were warned. Yes, they were warned, but still they rejected.
worse. Oh, and they also disobeyed rasuna who his messengers. On top of that they also disobeyed His messengers, if you think of it, which messengers Russell florala colossal were sent to these people to people that
was only one messenger who who their listener, then how come it has been said that it was sold to Sula that they disobeyed His messengers
because disobeying one messenger is like disobeying all of the messengers. Denying one messenger is like denying all of the messengers
because all of the messages
jurors have brought the same message.
And we have been commanded to believe in all of the messengers.
So where are Soto Sula, they disobeyed His messengers, whatever and instead they followed instead of obeying the messenger, who did they follow the command of collegia bear in every tire and that is our need that is obstinate.
Instead of following the messenger, they followed every job bearing or need,
who is Java, W some newsletters, Dean bottle. And when this word is used for a human being, it is used for someone who pressurizes the other
because Jabra is to compel to force to pressurize. So jabaal is a tyrant, someone who has a lot of power and he uses that power to oppress others, pressure rises others
and sometimes this pressure is physical and sometimes it is social.
It is social. Like for example, a person wants to do something good, but he does not do it because of the pressure that he feels from the society
because of the pressure that he feels from those who are above him. So who is he above?
Jabara someone who uses his pressure to stop other people from doing what they should be doing?
So they followed every Jabbar meaning they fell, as a victim of what of peer pressure.
They did not follow the messenger despite knowing that what the messenger was saying was truth,
despite recognizing it,
and instead, they became fearful
of people who are oppressive, of people who are tyrants, and they became very big into them just to please them.
And Jiabao, who is alter I need I need this under factories, I knew that.
And I need is one who does not accept the truth. And ladylike will help the one who does not accept the truth,
deliberately opposes the truth, a stubborn person who sees it, but still he does not accept it,
an opponent. So they follow the way of every devout who is or need every tyrant who is obstinate, who is stubborn, in his opposition to the truth, in his rejection of the truth, despite knowing it.
In this ayah is a very severe warning
against First of all, denying the Ayat of Allah. And secondly,
secondly, disobeying the messengers. And thirdly, following the ways of
oppressive tyrants, who pressurize people to basically becoming a victim to pressure,
social pressure, peer pressure,
a severe warning against these three things.
Because if you look at it, Jihad will be it will be denied in the eyes of their Lord.
We check ourselves as well.
That sometimes we know about the Ayat of Allah, I ask is what I add Kony, or I utter the commands of a law, we're very well aware of them, many of them.
But still, what is our reaction?
Is it of acceptance? Or is it that we say yes, I know what I have to do, but I can't do it.
I know what I have to do. I know what is forbidden, but still, I'm going to do it.
I don't care.
This is what God means.
And we all need to analyze ourselves over here.
We all need to check ourselves over here. For example, we have learned earlier in turtle Baccarat about the prohibition of river we have learned earlier about the prohibition of changing the creation of Allah. But still, our actions do not change. Still, we go on doing things that are completely forbidden. This is what Jihad will be it will be.
We know that a woman who plugs her eyebrows or plucks them on someone else there is learner of Allah upon her learner curse, distance from the mercy of Allah. Then with what audacity do we go on plucking our eyebrows every other week.
This is jihad. We know what the hell is. But still we don't accept it. Why? Because of the pressure of others. Just bear in our need because the pressure of others. We don't obey the command of the messenger. But we think what is this person going to say? And what is that person going to say? My mom wants me to do it. I cannot disappoint other people. No, we cannot disappoint a lot because if we disappoint
Him, and everyone else is happy with us. We are not successful.
We are not successful.
We cannot use this excuse at the end of the day that it was other people who forced me. It was their force, I didn't have a choice. No, when it comes to the things that we want to do, then we always have a choice. But when it comes to the matters of Dean, then all of a sudden we don't have any choices. And we put the blame on other people.
If we put the blame on other people, then we should read this is
that the people of add also, who did they follow? Japan or any?
If you think of it, it shouldn't have been their fault, technically. But it was their fault because they made the decision.
Every person has been born free from inside at least. And every person has the ability to make the decisions. So in this is a great lesson for us. That when we learn about the commands of a law, we must follow them. When we learn about these stories, we think okay, it was about those people, they disobey the messengers, they do not accept the commands of Allah, and they were punished hamdulillah we do everything. But if we reflect on ourselves, there are many commands that we overlook, we go against despite knowing them
well to be true, and they were followed with
meaning it came after them, what came after them fee How do you dunia in this world learn nothing curse.
In this dounia they were followed by Lana. The curse of Allah was upon these people in this linear
way oh well pm. And on the Day of Judgment, also there will be the curse of Allah upon them.
And not just the curse of Allah, but the curse of who the rest of the creation as well.
deprived from the mercy of Allah. Allah unquestionably, in Northern Europe boom, indeed, the people of God, they disbelieved in their Lord, they rejected their Lord, they denied his blessings. They denied his commands. Allah unquestionably burden Lear is a way for us and who is odd? Only who the people in the food?
What's the point of saying this? What's the purpose of saying this? That what happened with them, the end that they met, they deserved it? Because of what because of the actions that they used to commit
burden Leon comi hood, what does it mean to be distanced?
And this is another word This is a synonym for what learner that they are distance from the mercy of Allah,
away from the mercy of Allah, they were wiped away from the face of the earth. They built many houses, they constructed mansions with lofty pillars, but they were not able to live there. They were not able to reside in those houses.
They possessed a lot of strength, but that strength was nothing when the punishment of Allah descended upon them.
And how are they destroyed by a wind? Just imagine by a wind.
These people were finished.
So what's the lesson in this for us? That when we disobey Allah, we should fear him.
When we disobey Allah for the sake of our houses, for the sake of our beauty, for the sake of getting the pleasure of other people, for the sake of increasing in our strength, then we should remember that no matter what we ms, if Allah is disappointed with us, then nothing at all is going to benefit.
Because if material possession, if material success was of any worth in the sight of Allah, then the people of God would have survived,
they would have
but the fact that they were destroyed, nothing of theirs remained. This shows that Allah does not give any importance to material possession, material success whatsoever. So we should not prefer it over obedience to almost
we listen to the recitation of desire.

See, if we see in this story that we learned in this incident that we learned many times we think that people of the past they were sinners, they rejected the messengers they did. And this is why they were punished. We are not like them at all. But what is the reason of mentioning this incident? So that there is a lesson that can be learned by everyone.
And there are many lessons that can be learned.
But the final, I add, they conclude all of those lessons for us.
They comprehensively present those lessons for us, that we need to check ourselves as well. That when we learn about the Ayat of Allah, what is our reaction? When we learn about the commands, the instructions, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then what is our reaction?
And when it comes to the pressure of other people, do we succumb? Do we give up? Or do we remember that the right of Allah soprano data is above the right of everyone else.
And if you look at it, the last idea that will ought to be roofie had the dunya Nana, they were followed by Lana in this dunya because they did such things which brought upon them the curse of Allah.
And we learned about many things many crimes, whose consequence is the curse of oma and we need to stay away from them.
Allah in northern Colorado, and a burden laden company hood
they were people of a profit. Tell me who they were people to vote earlier today.
A messenger was sent to them. It wasn't that they were unaware.
Similarly, we're not unaware. We're very proud of the fact that a messenger was sent to us, then we need to follow him as well.
