Well, Rama and the grazing livestock, kala kaha He has created it, the anom that you enjoy the inom that you eat, that you benefit from, where do they come from? Allah subhanaw taala created them. And you know that an arm it includes samanya as well. Remember, when a button is named woman maurices name Romeo, eBill, middle Baka sheep, goat cows as well as camels.
So the anom Allah subhanaw taala has created and these an arm look comfy her for you in it, there is different warrant, woman f0 and benefits woman had that Cologne and from them you eat.
So these Ananda he has bestowed you with they are a multipurpose creation, you can enjoy many benefits of them.
And all those benefits are what that first of all through them, you obtain this.
This is from the real fetters dad fair Hamza.
And this is the opposite of Barack.
And what does that mean? code. So this is one heat and the comprehensive own for you. In the grazing livestock is warmed, what does it mean by that,
that you can make clothing out of their skin, out of their wool and fur, as well as their skins when you make leather out of that.
So first of all, in the form of clothing, winter clothing, like for example, leather jackets, similarly, woolen sweaters and socks. So first of all clothing. Secondly, this also includes the tents that the Arabs would make out of the skin of these animals.
And these tents, they will protect them from wind as well as cold.
And not just plants, but blankets, bedding, all of this is made from what from the skin from the for the hair of these animals.
Similarly, different warms, that is obtained from these animals is how that when we eat these animals, when we eat their meat, then with that our body, it has energy, there is some fat in our body through which we stay warm in colder temperatures, isn't it so and if a person does not eat meat, then he does not have enough iron, he does not have enough fat you can say in his body, which is why in colder weathers he will feel extremely cold.
Similarly, the comprehensive one, also is that and this is something very amazing that they're breathing, that even creates one or the other. Like for example, in winter, if you ever go into a barn, and all of these grazing livestock are together, you will actually feel warm over there. Because as they breed, the place around them, it becomes warm. And many times people where they lack such things such as heat or power. In such situations, they huddle around they come closer to their animals, and from their body heat they obtain want.
Can you imagine? So the comfy had the phone for you in these animals is the phone. Woman after your end benefits men after is a plural of man for meaning and other benefits. What kind of benefits are found or can be obtained from these animals?
For example, their milk What else? They carry loads for transportation. What other men effort can be obtained from these animals? Unfortunately, we haven't used them. Therefore, we don't even know about the various benefits
in farming and plowing. They're used for carrying water for irrigation. They're used a lot in farming.
Even their manure is used for making fire. People use it for even their houses. Do you know that and it's a perfect fertilizer as well. So many men after natural fertilizer, you don't have to buy anything
and buying and selling them that when a person has a herd of sheep or goats that obviously they're going to multiply and as a multiply, he can sell them and from that he can obtain money. So they are a source of income. They are a source of income. And many people they have such animals they sell their milk or to sell their meat
They're a source of income for their families.
Similar to these animals, they reproduce very quickly, very quickly they reproduce, especially the, the sheep and the goats, they reproduce very quickly. So because of that, the benefits are multiplied.
So there are various benefits that can be obtained from these animals, woman hat, that Cologne, and from it you also eat, meaning some of these animals to eat as well. The anom that you own, some of them you eat and others you keep for your work. And what do you eat of these animals?
Everything from the brain, to the liver, to the feet, to even the lungs, everything is consumed. Just recently, I bought some liver. And there was another packet that was given to me, I'm like, What on earth is this, I had no idea what it was. And I was asking people around and I found out that it was actually lungs. And I was told that people actually eat it as like, I have no idea how to cook it or how to eat it even the thought of eating it is a bit strange. But we see that women have that Cologne, these animals, every part of their body is useful, every single part.
And it's not just the meat that we eat of these animals, but the milk that they produced from the milk, there are so many things that we produce, from your ice cream, to your butter to your cream, and your cheesecakes and so on and so forth. The list is endless. Inside of the SR 72 and 73 we learn whether La La, la home from inhale aku boom, woman hi akun Why don't we have my nephew when machete boo flh guru and we have teamed them for them. Meaning these animals have been tamed for who human beings, just the fact that they're so easy to control. Just imagine if they were vicious as dogs and lions, how difficult it would be to control them.
So we have tamed them for them. So some of them they ride and some of them they eat and for them there are other benefits and drinks. So Will they not be grateful? Will they not be grateful for the creation of the anon
welcome fee here and for you in it in what in the anon there are for you, gentlemen, there is for you to not own beauty. And what is beauty? What is your melon Jamal is elegance. Basically, it is such beauty that is visible. Such beauty that is visible, that when you see something, you find it beautiful. And we noticed that Jamil is also used for sub, because when a person is being patient, and when you see them being patient, you see them, you know, it's beautiful. The fact that they're not complaining, the fact that they're not crying, the fact that they're not yelling. And if somebody says that they're being very patient, but they begin to cry and yell and scream, do you
like their patients? No, that's not patients at all.
So welcome, Jim Allen, for you in these animals is beauty hanaa at the time, when do the hoonah you all bring them in for the evening, where Hina and at the time when that sort of hone you send them out to pasture.
So the time when these animals are coming back home, after spending the entire day grazing at that time, as they're coming back, that scene is so beautiful.
And in the morning when you let them go for pasture even that scene as they're going as running away. Even that scene is so beautiful.
So we see that amongst the benefits that these animals give to the human beings is also beauty is also beauty. Especially at the time when they're sent. And when they're brought back from pasture from grazing.
doody hola is from the roof letters or ah well hair from the word blow.
Blow means relief, comfort letter A assumere rohilla. And it also means rest, to put something to ease to let something rest
and do the hoonah era is to put someone to rest. Do let them have rest to put them to ease.
from the same root is the word of Allah. And Allah is the time after love for Allah is the time after
because that is the time that when people like to take some rest, rather it is Muslim to take rest of that day.
Right, the afternoon nap. Because in the morning, from sunrise up until the whole time, what is recommended that we work
and at that time we take some rest and then again we get to work.
So why is the time after the hook and from this the word of the law
also used for taking rest in the evening taking rest in the evening.
It is that our ohana Ilana, meaning we gave rest to our camels when in the evening.
So basically when the animals have gone for the entire day they're grazing they're eating. Or, for example, they are being made to work the entire day in the evening, what happens? They're brought back to their barn,
In the evening, they're brought back to their barn. Why? to rest, take a break. So at the time when they're coming back at the time, when you bring them back from their pasture, to their barns. That scene is extremely beautiful.
What hanaa does rahoon does her home from the roof ever seen her from the word Zulu.
And to do is to go away it is to grace and sorrow is such a tree that is full of fruit, sir is such a tree that is full of fruit. So Zahra tesora, who is to take animals for pasture, to let them graze freely descend them so that they can graze freely.
So at the time that you're sending them in the morning to graze, even at that time, that scene is very beautiful.
And the last parameter that says welcome, big Meadow for you, it is Gemma.
If you notice the evening is mentioned first, in the morning is mentioned second, why do you think so? Because the evening time is more beautiful. You know why? Because the animals are coming back content, and satisfied with their bellies full. And it's time to milk them very soon. And the morning as they're leaving, even just as children when they're going to school. Sometimes they're cranky, they're because they're still hungry. So in the morning, as you're leaving, they're hungry at that time. But in the evening, as they're coming back, the scene is more beautiful.
So what do we see in this is that in these animals, the benefit is not just the food, and the drink, and their skins. And the travel that we use these animals for, but rather in these animals is also a lot of beauty. And there's beauty is also a blessing. Just the scene of them leaving and coming back, it pleases you. It makes you very happy. It makes you very proud, especially the owner.
Just as for example, a person owns a car, and it is driven out and it is driven back in how does he feel very proud. It's only one car, and a person has a flock as a herd. And that entire herd is going and coming back. Imagine how happy he must feel. Welcome.
So what does it show to us? that happiness is not just acquired by eating good food, or by wearing nice, comfortable clothes. But rather good scenery is also something that pleases a person. It is also something that makes a person happy.
Therefore, it is extremely important that we keep our environment such that when we look around ourselves, we feel happy in the sense that the things in our house, there are clean, they're organized, they're put in the right places. Because if our house is always messy, that every time we look at those things, are you gonna feel upset, isn't it angry? But if everything is in its place, how do you feel very happy, you feel very content, then you can focus on things that are important.
But if the place that you're living in is so messy, that it does not bring you comfort and tell me what can you do, you can't do anything.
Similarly, this also shows to us that we should go outside of our houses and look at the creation that Allah subhanaw taala has created
and admire it and be happy in our hearts through them. All of this creation that Allah subhanaw taala has created. It's not just for the farmers to look at. No, it's also for us, we must also go and look and admire so that we can be happier people. Unfortunately, we keep ourselves closed in buildings, in houses, in workplaces, in cars, in trains, and subways. And we don't go out, go out and look what Allah has created because it will make you happy and be happy.
What that means is Karla come and they carry your loads meaning these animals, these animals, they carry your loads as well as a plural of sickle cell Koffler, which is lowered baggage.
So what kind of loads do these animals carry? What kind of loads do these animals carry
anything from construction material to baggage, like the brothers of use of our listener. They took their Gamble's their animal thrower for transporting food.
So they're used for transporting food, construction material, different different things.
And also human beings people.
So what that means is Allah calm they carry your loads, meaning the loads that you put on them. So the goods, the stuff that you put on them that you load them with. And as Allah calm also means your own loads, meaning your bodies, your weight. These animals there appear to be sometimes so small like for example a donkey and a person is sitting on it and the feet are sometimes touching the ground. So what that means is they carry your loads Ella to Ballard in a land, London Zoo, you all are not barely he wants to reach it. inlet except bishopville unforce with difficulty of the salts. Meaning if you yourself were to carry these things, on your backs in your hands on your heads, it
will be extremely difficult for you to transport these things. So be grateful for these animals who carry your loads for you. Lamb takuna Valerie Valerie is actually valtellina and the moon has been dropped because of the her and it's a floral off berry who is
one who reaches somewhere.
So you yourselves would not be able to reach those places in levee shackle and force ship is trouble difficulty. And basically it is such fatigue that a person experiences because of physical exertion. So when you put in a lot of effort and doing something eventually what happens? You feel tired. So that feeling of tiredness that is called what should
not that a person has been sleeping and then when he wakes up, he says I'm tired. No shift is what when you have been working, when you have been struggling when you've been walking and running and going up and down and carrying heavy loads. When you physically exert when you get tired, that is called ship and ship pill unforce together gives the meaning of with great difficulty with great hardship with great effort.
So a las panatela created these animals for you. They don't just give you food. They don't just bring beauty, but they also carry your loads for you. Which if you were to carry ourselves it would be extremely difficult for you in our backup indeed your Lord little EU phone surely he is most kind and he is at our Haim he is most merciful. Notice the name that I've mentioned over here, but are off and Rahim Rufus from Rockford and what is about
it is such compassion that one feels on seeing someone in difficulty. So Allah is so kind to you that if you were to carry these loads yourselves, it would be so difficult for you. So Allah has been so kind and affectionate towards you that he provided you with these animals so you don't have to carry those loads. You don't have to experience all that difficulty yourself.
And Rafa is also such feeling in which you want to remove the difficulty from someone that they're experiencing. Like for example, if you see someone walking themselves on the street, and you're driving and you have space in your car, what do you want to do? Stop and give them a ride as well.
Similarly, if you see someone carrying a heavy bag, what do you want to do? Help them carry their bags, this is what it is that when you see someone in difficulty and you want to remove that difficulty from them, compassion, care
So indeed your Lord, He is an author and he is Rahim and rahima when used with Rafa, Rama means to bring ease. So where a lot of it is to alleviate remove the difficulty is to bring ease and convenience. Because sometimes you can walk yourself. But if you go on an animal, it's more convenient. Even if you're not carrying anything in your hand, if you go on an animal, it's more convenient. So in a lot of overhead, this is why he has created these animals for your benefit.
So in other words, Allah subhanaw taala has made these animals for you, so that your life becomes easy. Your life becomes easy and comfortable.
Now previously, when people did not have cars or other means of transportation, what would they use these animals. But even today, you might wonder, we don't need these animals anymore. But the fact is that in many places still today, these animals are used. Still today they're being used.
Well, haila and the horses meaning wahala and he has also created the horses.
Hi, is used for horses well behala and the mules. beard oil is a plural of bubble bear.
And it is used for a mule what is a mule?
So basically it's an animal whose mother is a horse and father is a donkey. So how would you explain that? A mixed breed.
So well hyena well behala and he has created the horses and the mules and these mules especially, they are extremely strong, extremely strong and they're used for transportation as well as for a lot of physical labor like for example working in the fields so we'll find out we'll be hauling one hammer and the donkeys and Hamid is a plural of him out and humanities it okay
so we'll hyena will be Lala well hemiola these animals Allah has created them for you little kabu hair so that you all right it was in a tent and also as an adornment
also as a beauty.
So the first reason behind the creation of these animals is what little cowboy hat so that you can write them down from newsletters volcat bamboo just arrived
and lamb over here indicates purpose Lita kabu so the reason behind the creation of these animals The main reason is what
that you use them for writing was eaten and they're also an adornment.
Xena, it shows over here that this is a benefit that is obtained from these animals This is not really the purpose for which they were created. Because the verbal form has not been used. That oka boo ha is a feral and Zenith and isn't isn't. If Xena thin was used in a fair and form then it would show that yes, Xena was also a purpose. But the fact that they'll kabu is a fairly and Zenith and is a noun that shows that darker blue is a purpose and Zenith and is a benefit that is a it's a side benefit.
So they're also means of beauty that you write them and when a person is riding a horse that scene is so elegant while local and he creates meloetta alone what you do not know meaning he creates for your benefit for your service for your ease for your travel for your convenience, he creates other things or he will create other things which may Allah tala moon which you do not know right now.
So at that time before when this was revealed, people only knew about horses and other animals which were used for convenience purposes. However, later on Allah soprano data, enable the human being to make such vehicles through which he could travel. So yes, lucam Allah tala moon refers to all other vehicles that are man made, which people use for transportation for convenience. A person might say but Allah says yes local and these cars and planes they are manmade. The fact is that Who gave you this brain? Last?
who provided you with the ability to use these materials allows a predator
and where do you get the inspiration from anyway, from these animals that Allah has created?
This is why there is a horsepower. Right? There is no car power.
So you have loco Malhotra when he creates what you do not know for your convenience.
Secondly, we have local mera mon This isn't a general sense not just for the purpose of transportation and convenience, but other creatures as well. He has created what you have no idea about. And this is so true. New and new species new and new creatures are discovered. Fish are discovered which were never known before. Birds are discovered which were never seen before. We have no common authority when you have no idea that these creatures exist. You have no idea but Allah has created them.
And yes, nakoma 31 also applies to what Allah subhanaw taala has prepared in the hereafter
that he has created so much more in the hereafter which you have no idea about. You only know about the things in dunya and you think there's such a big deal. What is in the Hereafter is far greater it is far better.
Now over here we see that a loss of data says well Hydra will be Lola will Sharmila Lita kabu who was in it
and in the previous IO what was mentioned the anon
So, on one hand the nr mentioned and on the other hand, these animals are mentioned
the anom those animals are used for convenience as well like for example, camels, but they're also used for eating.
Now these animals hide behind Hermes
Some scholars have said that they have been mentioned separately, because this shows that these animals cannot be consumed. They cannot be eaten. But rather the only purpose behind their creation is what?
however, we see that this specification is not exactly accurate. Why?
Because from the anomaly So, there's the camel, which people write, isn't it? So? People write the camel. And when it comes to these animals, Heil, bivol hmil. We know from the Sunnah, that horses, they are, Helen, as we discussed earlier, I mentioned to you in sudo, tonight and sort of an arm that horses are permissible to eat, but when it comes to mules and donkeys, they're not allowed. Okay. So how do you understand this, that Elaine Vilas, her meds they haven't mentioned separately, but over here, the classification is not being made in what is allowed to be consumed and what is not allowed to be consumed. The classification is based on the main benefit that is a pain from
I mean, horses, when people think of them, what do they think of eating them or writing them? writing them? But when you think of a cow, what do you think of eating?
Wild donkeys, yes. But when it comes to domestic, we had the discussion earlier, they're not allowed wild donkey like, for example, zebras.
The middle of Mashallah. And first of all, Allah subhanaw taala, broke down us that look at yourself, or creation, what kind of person you are. And once a person is broken, then it's easy to start giving the Navajo now that's what I start mentioning. Look at that. And it's a beautiful way to make some money to be more submissive towards the commandment of Allah.
That look at all the blessings that Allah has given you. And look at yourself, What are you, you're nothing without a loss of power. There's a lot of fun and run on you.
And the names that I mentioned are oof and Rahim that he's so compassionate and kind towards you, that he has made your life easy through these animals, if you wanted, you would have been carrying all these loads yourself. But he has created these animals, and he has made them humble before you so that you can use them. Look at the kindness and compassion that Allah has for you. Like for example, if a parent sees their child, walking to school, taking the bus all the time, walking all the way to the bus stop and taking so long. If they can afford a car, what will they do?
They will get a car immediately Why? To make the life of their child easy. But Allah subhanaw taala is far more merciful, that he has created for our benefit many, many animals in which is not just ease and convenience, but also food and beauty in those animals for us.
