An-Nahl 41-64 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 45-50
In the first day we see Logan we are on the moon, if only they knew. So this shows to us that until a person learns about what Allah has promised, what Allah has said, he cannot have supper, he cannot do the work.
He cannot bring about a change in his life.
Because otherwise it'd be very difficult.
Many times when a person is sacrificing for the sake of Allah, he's going through many difficulties leaving one thing after the other, he's bringing about a change in his life, then he does undergo a lot of difficulty and if he does not focus on the promise of Allah, if he does not motivate himself with that, then he will be constantly sad and depressed and hurt.
So when a person remind himself that this is a promise of Allah that will keep him positive.
We see that Ibrahima Sam is a very good example for us, that he is one who sacrificed so much for the sake of Allah for the religion of the last panel data and look at all the rewards that he got.
He became harinama.
One who is a friend of Allah. And remember the type of friendship polis, that your heart, it's fully together, there is no gaps in the middle. Our problem is that in our hearts, we have filled up, you know, the love of so many different things that then there's no love for Allah. There's hardly any room for that.
So only when your heart is full of love, for a loss of love for the deen love for the truth, that becomes the highest priority, only then we can sacrifice.
Otherwise sacrifices impossible.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this is that many times we see that people disregard to some of the prophets, a lot of them they completely ignore it. They completely Leave it. They say it's authentic, they will say such things whereas the fact is that the people who narrated the Quran are the people who passed on the Sunnah as well.
The same people who pass down the Quran as well as the Sunnah. So many times people disregard the Sunnah. Whereas the fact is that we cannot separate the two. Both of them are together.
If you take any science book, anything to do with biology, anything to do with even physics, with chemistry, even if you don't just look at the textbook, what do you have? diagrams, right? You have to have the practical so you have to go to the lab, you have to see so many things. You have to study so many things, practically as well. Theory alone is not sufficient. So why is it that when it comes to religion, we say we don't need this on, you do need it.
Even to become a doctor, you know, passing your exams is not sufficient, you also have to pass your practical you have to go at the hospital and stay there for a year or two and then you get that certification.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this is that we see that in the previous AI at the beginning of the novel we saw so many of the blessings that are Lost Planet Allah has bestowed us with and we saw that all of the blessings are integrated together, you cannot separate them.
I could have said that you cannot explain a rock to someone without explaining the sun to them. You cannot explain a river to someone without explaining rock to them. So all of the things in nature, they're connected together, you cannot divide them you cannot separate them. Similarly, when it comes to the religion, we cannot separate the religion we got divided up in sections. It has to be a hole. It has to be taken together. It has to be implemented in your entire life. Similarly, you cannot separate the Quran from the Sunnah, both of them go together.
And when it comes to Amala as well when it comes to implementing the Quran, and Sunnah don't just focus on one aspect. Take all of the aspects together, because sometimes we think that implementing the Quran and Sunnah means is putting on the hijab, and that's it, and not improving our character, not improving our manners. Both are necessary. If you walk out in an Islamic attire, but your clock is not good, then people are going to think that it's your garb that makes you such whereas the fact is that both of them must be taken together.
Would you like to share anything?
Closer just thinking when you were saying how we compartmentalize the deen and we take certain aspects of it. And again, I keep going to being parents. And this is something like even I'm grappling with. And it's a reminder for myself as well that we have to start even with our children, we're so willing to sacrifice for the dunya because for us that is a priority, not realizing that there is a priority. We're willing to do everything to put them through worldly education. But when it comes to sacrificing for the deen and putting them in Islamic schools, we're not willing to do that then, you know, we come up with excuses or it's so expensive or it's this it's that so the
Hydra has to be in our brains first. We have to completely change how we think. And it's not going to come until we change completely already.
mentality then only can we completely live on Sunday.
Okay, let's continue with the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim at number 45.
I mean alladhina Mercado, sejati and Josefa la will be human. Oh yes, dear homeowner either woman hater layyah. Sharon, then do those people who have planned evil deeds feel secure, that alone will not cause the earth to swallow them, or that the punishment will not come upon them from where they do not proceed.
Remember, the soda is in murky soda, in which the profits are a lot of freedom and the Sahaba they were facing a lot of opposition, a lot of opposition.
And this is the reason why in the previous if we learned about Hydra, and we also learnt about the fact that every messenger was a human being, because these are the objections that the machine had.
Now, as far as their opposition was concerned,
their enmity, the harm that they were inflicting on the believers day in and day out. A loss of personal data, addresses that issue
that these people who are Makoto say it, they're plotting evil plans, meaning evil ways of dealing with the believers.
Every single day they would think about how to harm the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
how to harm the Muslims, how to torture them, how to physically abuse them, how to emotionally and mentally torture them.
So, Amina, do such people feel secure? Have they become fearless? That and Josefa law will be human, that he could cause the earth to swallow them. He fell from the roof of his house he in fact, has and has his to sink to God something to think. So yes, if a lot will be him will alter he will cause the earth to sink in with them to swallow them.
Just like a rune was swallowed by the earth, that the earth opened up for him and he was swallowed up by the earth.
That would work confidence are you walking upon this earth, plotting and planning against those who are worshipping Allah, you think Allah will not punish you? You think Allah cannot cause the earth to swallow you inside? Of course he can. This is not about difficult for him.
Recently, I watched a video clip in which there was a car driving on the highway. And all of a sudden, the road cracked and the earth fell in the car went in
within seconds. I mean, who thinks about that when driving on the highway when driving on a road that the Earth could just split open and my car could go inside right away without a warning.
I cannot run out of the car at that time.
So do they feel secure or yet to homeowner or their woman Hazel is around or the punishment could come upon them from where they do not even expect from where they do not even realize.
We see the decoration Makati would gather up and down network in their meeting house and they would plot against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Sahaba So Allah is warning them over here.
Oh yeah Oh the home or that he could seize them feed the Colombian in their usual activity from our home emergency and they could not cause failure.
Meaning he Allah subhanaw taala can also seize them can also punish them could also inflict punishment upon them. When in their usual activity. The word Jackalope is from the fetters of lambda, the word called is also from the same root heart and unlovable kalibo it is to turn about
the turn upside down inside up to turn sideways again and again repeatedly.
And this is the state of our hearts. Sometimes we're very emotional, sometimes very sad. Sometimes they're very positive, sometimes very negative, constantly changing.
So the column is moving about fluctuation.
And the word the column is used in various ways.
First of all, it is used for travel
because when a person is traveling, constantly traveling, he leaves the house he comes back, he goes again he comes back he goes here he goes there. He's constantly on the go.
And we have learned earlier in sort of earlier Milan, naka de La Villa de la cafaro
that the column the column over there is traveling.
Secondly, the word the column is also understood as during the day or the night.
What does it mean by that? That
Your state, your activities fluctuate as the day and night come and go.
Thirdly, the word the follow up is also used for usual routine activities. When a person is going back and forth when a person is busy with his daily work,
at one point he's eating another point he's sleeping, another point is going Another point is coming.
Similarly, the word the collar is also understood as sleep.
Because in bed, a person is constantly tossing and turning.
So do they feel secure, that he cannot see them in their colo
while they're traveling, or while they're at home during the day or the night
while they're sleeping in their beds, or in their usual routine activities? Do they feel secure that Allah cannot catch them at that point.
So many times, people die, performing their usual daily activities.
So many times a person goes leaves his house for a journey, and he never comes back home.
We hear such news all the time. Fun, I won't be more using then they cannot at all cause failure to Allah, meaning they cannot escape the punishment.
We learned in so little molcajete number 16 I mean to manifest sama Exif Avi como el agua Farina here to move? Do you feel secure, that he who holds authority in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you? And suddenly it was way?
How can you feel secure?
So in this is definitely a threat for them wished he came because they were plotting against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But remembering that the Quran was not just for them, it was not just for that time. And we can also extract lessons from this for ourselves.
That when we are disobeying Allah, soprano, dada, when we spend days and nights in disobedience, without praying Salah without performing our obligations,
while we have broken up ties with our relatives, then what are we thinking?
We think that we will be left as we are.
Shouldn't we be fearing the loss of parental data that he can seize us at any point?
Oh, yeah, oh, the home or he could seize them are that the whole Wolf, in a state of dread?
in a state of fear, for in our back home, not over him. But indeed your Lord is kind and merciful. He is kind and merciful that he does not punish you. He still gives you time.
It's not that a person disobeys a lot and immediately he's caused to swallow by the year.
It doesn't happen that a person disobeys Allah and immediately a thunderbolt strikes him and he finishes over there. No, Allah is merciful, he is kind he gives time he gives rest by so that people can realize they can repent, and they can improve their ways.
Because human beings are human beings, if we get insane is from this year, and he forgets he's emotional, he makes mistakes. So Allah gives time to us, so that we can realize and we can repent.
Now what is mentioned over here, oh, yeah, Allah,
that he can seize them upon the whole of
the whole office on the roof of his house. And what does health mean?
Fear. So in a state of fear, he can seize them.
What could be a state of fear?
A state of fear, fright, Panic of the punishment.
Like for example, imagine a person is watching the waves coming in.
And he sees one car being swept away, another car being swept away, another person being swept away. And he is in a state of fear that what if this water continues to rise, and I am also swept away. And while he is afraid, the very thing that he's afraid of it happens and he is also swept away by the water.
I like the whole wolf. A person is in a state of fear, dread that what if this happens to me as well, and the same thing happens to him. He sees death approaching him. He hears that one person has died, another person got into a car accident, another person suffered a great loss. And he's afraid that what if this happens to me and the same thing happens to him.
Secondly, the word The hope is understood in another way as well.
And what is that? The hub of means, then of course, gradual reduction gradual loss
Where do we get this meaning from when we know that the word The hope is from hope, and hope means fear?
You see, every person fears loss.
And especially when a person is losing one thing after the other gradually, then his fear increases, isn't it?
When you have, let's say, a bottle full of your favorite perfume,
a huge bottle full of your favorite perfume, or your favorite soap, and you're using it, as you see it going less, don't you increase in your fear?
People increase in their fear and that's they want to get rid of it. Right? So gradual loss, gradual reduction, it causes a person to be fearful.
And this meaning of this word, we learn of it from this era be this Bedouin, who was from the venue, who they,
the tribe have been who they, we learned that or model dinardo once he asked the companions and the people who were sitting over there, that what do you understand this word as
you see this a habit? They would ask one another about the meanings of the words of the Quran is
so remarkably that he asked the companions that how do you understand this word?
But there's a Quran was revealed in Arabic, right? And remember that Arabic at that time, people would only speak,
the Arabs were only they will not read. So if you would want to know the meaning of a word, you couldn't just open up a book and see, okay, how has this been written in this person's book? No. Nor could you refer to a dictionary,
you would have to see how that word was used by the people.
And different tribes sometimes had unique words, or they had specific meanings, that they ascribed to certain words. So this person, he got up and he said, this is our word. The word however, is actually ours, meaning it's of our tribe. And it means then, of course, gradual diminishing gradual reduction of something.
And then he read a verse of poetry, to explain the meaning and aroma of the noun who he said on a committee when he come to the loo.
That hold on to your demand, hold on to your Dysport, tree of yours, and you will not go astray.
So this shows to us that in order to understand the Quran, to understand the meaning of the words of the Quran, what do we have to look at? How the Arabs of the time used
and we also have to see how the prophets Allah loves him explained it.
So, then what does that mean by the how often the context
that gradual reduction, gradual deterioration of their possessions of their numbers off their strength, and when a person gradually loses something,
then what does he realize that very soon, whatever he has is going to come to an end.
For example, a person has a strong able body
without any problems, one day he finds out, he has a serious illness.
And other day he finds out that he has another illness, one day, one part of the body's hurting the other day, another part of the body is hurting. So this is what gradual loss of physical strength,
gradual loss of physical strength. Similarly, family, group of people, great numbers, one person dies, another person dies, another person dies, this is what gradual reduction of numbers, gradual reduction of manpower.
Similarly, wealth, a person loses his car, and then he loses his money, and then he loses his house, and then it loses his wallet, one thing after the other, what does that show? gradual reduction of wealth?
So aren't they afraid that Allah can seize them in any way that he wants?
He can cause them to be seized by what they fear.
He can cause their livelihood, their entire infrastructure, their families, their physical strength, their wealth to deteriorate gradually to the point that they have nothing left. He can do that very easily. But remember that for Inaba, como una Rahim, your Lord is guide and he's merciful, that he does not punish you immediately.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, No one is more patient in the case of hearing offensive speech than Allah for the attribute to him a son while He alone is giving them provision and good health.
He does not punish people immediately. He is kind and merciful.

Things Allah has created,
do they not see at all those things that Allah has created mean shading
and shading over here refers to a thing that has a shadow.
Such a thing that has a shadow like for example, mountains, people, trees, rocks, animals,
a physical form that can actually have a shadow,
yet the failure it shifts lilulu it shades on earlier meaning washerman it to the right and to the left, do they not look at all these things that Allah has created,
whose shadows shift from left to right and back and forth, that all these things that Allah has created, they have shades, they have shadows, and these shadows they shift here the failure or from the root letters failure Hamza fate
and fate is to return it is to shift from one direction to another
basically means of your return. And from this, it is to shift from one direction to another.
yet a failure Lila, who lead is a Florida live. So the shadows of all these things, they shift to the left and to the right. Why do they shift?
Why with the position of the sun, with the time of the day, at the beginning, they face a particular direction. And as the sun declines, they shift to the other direction.
But these shades that are shifting from site to site, don't just look at it as you know, something that has to do with physics or something that has to do with the sun. Go beyond that. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala has created. And what is it that Allah is showing to us that all of them are subject and once frustrating. So Dan is a product side, one who is frustrating.
They're all prostrating the line for Allah. What will you learn while they're humble? They're hidden is a part of their head. And their head is from the hood. The hood is to be small, to be humble. So all of them they're humble and small before Allah.
If you look at it said the frustration is a symbol of what
humanity it is a symbol of making yourself small before the other, showing yourself a small before the other.
And when the shadows of different things, the shift from right to left, they increase and the decrease. The shadows are basically were on the ground. They're fallen on the ground. So Allah subhanaw taala says that these shadows there in reality, what that things are prostrating to Allah subhana wa Tada. While they are very humble, very obediently, their shadows shift. They don't say, No, I don't want to have this shadow. I don't want to move. No, they're very humble and small before.
Insert verify number 15. We learned when he left he has to do Memphis somehow it will return worker When will we learn how to do we will fall
and to Allah alone. All who are the heavens and the earth fall in frustration willingly or unwillingly answer to their shadows in the mornings and also in the afternoons.
So we see that some creation can willingly prostrate before a long night for example, human beings, but there is other creation that has been created in a way that it is as though it is always in frustration. Like for example, animals that walk in there for legs. It is as though they are fallen in frustration, right? their necks are always bent down.
And there are some other creation which cannot move by itself like for example, mountains, trees. So how do they prostrate it's their shadows that prostrate before
so every creature frustrates before Allah and the choice has been left to the human being. It's up to you whether you do such that or not. If you do, so, it's for your own benefit. And if you refuse to such that you're only harming yourself,
what Allah He has to do my sister, my wife, to my friend, and to Allah prostrates, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, mean that button of creatures, meaning every diver that is in the sky, that is in the earth is frustrating to who
a lot of predator
who else is frustrating one Mullah eager to end the angels as well. Because so far we have learned the creatures of the earth, the heavens and the earth that we see. However, there is much more creation that we do not see like the angels, but even they are prostrating before Allah or Himalayas duck balloon and they are not arrogant. They humbly bow down before Allah.
No person may wonder, how does the sun frustrate?
How do rocks frustrate? How do they reverse
Straight How did the CS frustrate? Because I lost parameterizing everything that happens in the aircross rates,
yes, that it applies to every living moving creature that can move by its own will. And by definition rocks and mountains are not included in that. However, when such data is used for the creation, that is rare often, that cannot move by itself,
that does not have any mental capacity of its own, then such that for that creation means that it does whatever is required of it.
It does whatever it is commanded to do.
The sun will do what it is commanded to do.
The river will do what it is commanded to do, the mountain will do what it is commanded to do. This is what it's such days.
You have fallen out of the home, they fear their Lord menfolk to him from above them.
What does it mean by this, they fear their Lord from above the
meaning, because of his authority above them, because of his great position and rank above them, they fear their Lord, you have vulnerable, menfolk him because cotija to be above, it gives a meaning of valva. It gives meaning of dominance, and authority.
So there are Lord who is above them in authority in power, they fear Him, we have our own Mia Maroon, and they do whatever they are commanded.
This is their such that they do whatever they're commanded to do, without any objection, without any resistance,
be more Gz
What are they doing? whatever they're asked to do.
And that is humidity that is such the so we see that such that is not just a part of solar. But it is also a part of the rest of our lives as well. Where we show humidity before our last panel Daya by obeying His commands. In the previous ayat, we learned about how the last panel data has caused the rain to come down and all of these things they grow and all of these things that are functioning in the heavens and the earth. They're a huge blessing for all of us. And that would not be possible if they were not obedient to us.
So the same is also expected of us
that we also obey Allah. We also show humility to him in all the aspects of our lives that we don't compartmentalize our religion, our lives, but our entire lives are in obedience to 100
