00:00:03--> 00:00:05

Shivani rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

00:00:06--> 00:00:12

so number 137 sudo to NACA I am number 65 to 79.

00:00:14--> 00:00:49

Well now who unzila Amina sama EMA and and Allah has sent down water from the sky. How in the form of rain in the form of snow in the form of hail in various forms. Allah subhanaw taala causes water to descend from the sky. But in particular what is meant over here is rain. Why? Because what is mentioned afterwards is that the earth is brought to life as a result of this water descending from the sky. And we know that this only happens when there is rain.

00:00:50--> 00:01:01

For here, then he gave life here from the root letters here. Yeah, yeah, from the word Hyatt life. I hear you He is here to give life.

00:01:03--> 00:01:28

So for a here be with it. Meaning with this water that he sends down from the sky and the earth by the motiva after its death. What is the death of the earth, when the earth is dry, when it is barren, when nothing grows on it, when there are no creatures, and there's no food, it's completely dry, there's no water either. So this is dead land.

00:01:29--> 00:01:37

And a heavy hill or the bar demo Tia, how is the earth brought to life after being dead, when there is vegetation on it,

00:01:38--> 00:01:49

when there are plants on it, when there's greenery on it, because when there are plants on the earth and what will happen automatically, there'll be so many insects, there'll be so many creatures, there will be so much life

00:01:51--> 00:02:06

in mefi balika indeed, in that in what in the coming of the rain, and in the coming to life of the earth as a result of that green, there is I attend surely assigned for who they call me as Maroon for people who listen,

00:02:07--> 00:02:56

what kind of summer is this listening hearing? Remember, there are different types of listening. One is to just hear the sound, but the other is that a person listens attentively, he listens to the sound, he pays attention to it, he reflects upon it, and summer is also after the book, reflection and it is also of a boon of acceptance, that whatever you hear you accepted as well. So for those people who listen for them is a huge lesson in the coming down of the rain, and in the coming to life off the dead land. What sign is this? What lesson is this? This is this lesson has been understood in various ways. First one, it has been said that in this is a sign of higher bar than

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

mote life after death.

00:02:59--> 00:03:38

Because just as the earth is dead, there is no life in it. Similarly, human beings when they will all have died, when there is no life in them. In a body when there is no life in it. There is no blood that is moving inside, that is flowing inside. The person is not breathing. But Allah subhanaw taala will resurrect the dead, just as the earth that is dead, it has no movement, nothing is growing in it. Similarly when people have died, when Allah can revive the dead land, a Lost Planet Allah can alter revive a dead human being. So in this is a lesson of what had been the remote life after that.

00:03:39--> 00:03:47

But everybody cannot understand this. From this example, who can understand those people who listen?

00:03:48--> 00:04:17

What do they listen to? The listen to the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala. They reflect upon them, and they take a lesson. Because many people, they see the rain falling down, they see the earth coming to life again. But they never extract from this the lesson that we do can come back to life, a luck and recreate us as well. They never take that lesson. Why? Because they don't listen to the ayatollah. They don't listen to what a las panatela is saying.

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

If you look at it, if you ponder over the entire water cycle, that the water evaporates, it forms into clouds. And when the clouds are heavy, the water falls down in the form of rain into proportion. And as a result, the earth comes to life. This is a huge thing that is happening. But still there are people who look at it, who study it, who measure the rain even who go into such minor details, but they still don't understand the fact that people can also be recreated. Why? Because they don't reflect on the site. They don't reflect the study. They learn. But they don't reflect it's only those who reflect who can take a lesson from this

00:05:01--> 00:05:41

I'll take a look at it likoma smartphone for those people who listen, who listen to what, who listen to the sound of rain falling, who listen to the thunder. Because what does that show that shows a loss of Paradise greatness is power. That so much water is constantly falling down from the sky in so much abundance, so much abundance, and the sound of thunder, the sound of the wind, the sound of the rain, what does that show to a person that makes him realize the power and the greatness of Allah soprano data? So this is one sign in the rain falling down and the earth coming to life.

00:05:42--> 00:05:46

There's another sign in this as well. And what is that sign?

00:05:47--> 00:05:58

That just as rain revives the dead land, similarly, the rain of knowledge, what does that do? It revives? What does it revive the dead heart?

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

That just as in order to bring dead earth to life, what do you need to do you need to pour water over it.

00:06:08--> 00:06:18

Similarly, the hearts of people are also dead. What is it that brings them to life? It's knowledge, but what kind of knowledge it's the knowledge of the Quran.

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

But who will benefit?

00:06:22--> 00:06:56

The commies marone for those people who listen, for those people who listen to the Quran, who listened to the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala, only they can benefit from this knowledge. Because again, the the knowledge is poured over many hearts, but how many absorb how many retain? Think about it when you pour water over land over some soil. Or if you pour water over some fabric, what's going to happen? Some things when you pour water over, it's going to flow, it's going to flow from top.

00:06:57--> 00:07:03

However, some things when you pour water on top of it, it's going to absorb, it's going to retain it.

00:07:05--> 00:07:21

So similarly, those people who listen attentively to the Quran, who listened to the Quran again and again, they will be able to retain the Quran. And when they will be able to retain the Quran, only then their heart can come to life.

00:07:22--> 00:07:40

Remember, if a person is not able to remember and retain the Quran inside himself, then how will he change? Or how will that change be constant, there might be a temporary change, but there won't be a constant change, they won't be a permanent change.

00:07:41--> 00:08:06

So it is very, very important that we must try our best to retain the Quran inside our hearts and minds. And how is that possible? When we listen to the Quran again and again? Many times I see people are complaining that they're not able to memorize the lesson. They're not able to memorize the words the root words the meanings, the singular plurals they're not able to understand why.

00:08:07--> 00:08:39

Because many times our relationship with the Quran is just limited to the class. Unfortunately, we only come here we listen, we go home, we do the lesson and that's it. It's not beyond that. Yesterday, what did we learn the importance of entering into Islam wholeheartedly and completely not compartmentalizing the religion, our lives. Similarly, when it comes to studying the Quran, if you really want to retain it, what do you have to do? You have to read it, you have to listen to it again. And again.

00:08:40--> 00:08:54

Think about it, the things that you listen to, don't just get settled in your mind. Like for example, if there's a particular in a sheet that you hear just once hits coming into your head again and again, isn't it? You keep singing it in your head, and occasionally it comes on your tongue as well.

00:08:56--> 00:09:23

So similarly, if you want to keep the Quran inside your heart, what do you need to do? You need to listen to it again and again. And if you try this, believe me it will make a huge difference to your memorization. Daily lesson, the daily lesson when you memorize it. After memorization, make sure you listen. Listen again and again repeatedly. Listen to the entire solar, listen to the lesson of the day and inshallah it will make a huge difference.

00:09:24--> 00:09:38

So in this is a lesson for whom you call me tomorrow. Those people who listen to the Koran only they will be able to retain it when they will be able to retain it only then there will be some change. Only then their hearts will come to life.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

Because if you think about it, soil is also of different types. Some soil you pour water over it, it will absorb it. Other soil you pour water over it, it will flow, not the soil that absorbs the water only that will produce plants and the soil that does not absorb the water. Nothing will grow on it.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

So in order to bring about the change, what do we have to do?

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

retain the Quran? How do you do that? By listening to the Quran becoming a smart,

00:10:11--> 00:10:34

intellectual? And indeed for you, Phil an army in the grazing livestock is what they're able to turn surely a lesson for you or people in the grazing livestock in these animals, there is an oboe, there is a lesson. So make sure you reflect upon these animals. And you take that lesson. What is the word an arm include?

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

It includes cows, sheep, goats, and cattle. The watery blue is from newsletters It

00:10:44--> 00:11:07

is used for a lesson and example, advice. And basically it is from the word Herbalife. Herbal and herbal is to cross to cross over something. Like for example, you're walking, you're driving, and all of a sudden there's a river, there's a stream or there's a lake. Now, what do you need to do in order to get to the other side?

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

You need to cross the river? How would you do that? through a bridge, or for example, a boat or a ship or something like that.

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

Sir, a boat is to cross.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

So river is a lesson?

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

How do we connect this with crossing over something?

00:11:30--> 00:11:37

If you look at it, when you reach the bank, the edge of the water? That's just the front part of it.

00:11:38--> 00:11:50

You need to cross over it in order to get to the other side and see what's out there. If you stop at one side, will you find out what's on the other side? No, you want

00:11:51--> 00:11:58

similarly a bra is to not just stop at the appearance of something.

00:11:59--> 00:12:05

But it is to cross the obvious it is to cross the apparent and look at the hidden message inside.

00:12:07--> 00:12:45

It is look at the hidden message that What does this mean? What can I learn from this? Like, for example, in the previous IRA, what did we see? The rain is falling down the earth is coming to life. That is what just the obvious. Many people that just get stuck over here, they don't go beyond that. A blog is to cross that surface to cross that obvious and see okay, what can I learn from this? How can I take a lesson from this? And what is that lesson that just as the earth can come back to life with water similarly, people who are dead can also be brought back to life. Similarly, hearts that are dead can also be brought to life.

00:12:47--> 00:12:52

So in the animals, even the grazing livestock, there is an Abel

00:12:53--> 00:13:06

and Abel. So don't just look at the cows and goats and sheep and enjoy their meat and say okay, this piece of meat is very good. or enjoy the milk. No, go beyond that. See, what can you learn from these animals?

00:13:08--> 00:13:31

Allah subhanaw taala tells us about that herbal, that nasty come we give you to drink from the root Atrazine. coffea we give you to drink mimma from what is feeble UI in its stomachs. bottle is the plural of button, bear for noon with a spoon on the top with a spoon on the top no Huracan data.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

What's the evidence for that?

00:13:35--> 00:13:39

Tell me a place where the word bottom comes in the Quran. The singular form

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

surah, Allah and Vaughn

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

the mother of Madame What did she say?

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

Murphy balcony. She didn't say botany what is the word over there but didn't need.

00:13:54--> 00:14:09

So my feeble Tony from what is in its bellies and the word Bachman applies to the stomach, the inner part of something therefore it can apply to the womb even because where is it in the inner part?

00:14:10--> 00:14:13

It can also apply to the stomach where the food is digested.

00:14:14--> 00:14:30

So me my feeble Tony from its valleys from its stomachs What does it refer to the ANA. So Allah subhanaw taala gives us to drink from what is in the bellies of these animals.

00:14:31--> 00:14:52

Mim benei foxin from between excretion, weathermen and blood So between the dung and the blood. While these two things are present in the bellies of these animals, still a loss of penalty gives us to drink Lebanon Harless on pure milk

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

despite the fact that the stomachs of these animals are filled with impurity.

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

Allah subhanaw taala gives us to drink levanon Harlequin milk that is harmless harmless as one that which is pure that which is unmixed. And this loving Hollis is in line, it is easy to swallow and drink for who

00:15:18--> 00:16:04

is Sherry bean for those who drink sialon is from the roof address seen while laying from the word salad. So which is to swallow something. And in particular it is when something is easy to swallow. When something is easy to drink when you're drinking it, nothing gets stuck in your throat. When you're drinking, the taste is not nasty, the smell is not that bad, or the temperature is not extremely hot or cold. That makes it difficult for you to swallow. It's the perfect temperature. It's the perfect texture. It's the perfect days the perfect smell, which makes it very, very easy for you to swallow. Earlier we read the word You see, when I occur, do you see who he will not be

00:16:04--> 00:16:11

able to drink it? Why? Because of the extreme smell and the temperature of that drink and hellfire.

00:16:12--> 00:16:29

So over here, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the lesson that we can learn from these animals. And what is that ibra that ebla is the sign and evidence of the wisdom, the power, the mercy of Allah soprano,

00:16:30--> 00:16:39

that Allah subhanaw taala could have provided us milk that was not that clean. That had a weird color or a weird taste or weird texture to it.

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

But look at the kind of milk that Allah subhanaw taala gives you to drink

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

and look at where it comes from where it is produced. What does that show to you?

00:16:52--> 00:17:30

the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala for you. And notice a loss of power that says over here Matthew bodoni Yes, Bhutan refers to the stomachs the bellies of these anom. But remember that the anom they don't have one stomach. If for example a cow it doesn't have one stomach inside itself, it has multiple stomachs and eat stomach. As the food goes through it. Different process of digestion is done and with that the milk is produced. So all of these animals have multiple stomachs. And Allah subhanaw taala says that in the stomach between the excretion and blood we produce for you 11 Harless, how is it harmless,

00:17:31--> 00:17:38

it is pure and clean from the effects and traces of what of blood and dunk

00:17:39--> 00:17:52

in taste. You don't taste any blood, you don't taste any dung. Similarly, in color, it's white, it doesn't have a shade of red, it doesn't have a shade of green or brown, no nothing like that. It's white.

00:17:53--> 00:18:01

And even in its smell, it's harmless, it's pure. In its whiteness, it's pure in its taste, it's pure in its sweetness, it is pure.

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

And the amazing thing is, it is produced in the bellies of these animals, which are filled with impurities,

00:18:10--> 00:18:39

forces from the root letters fertilizer, and forces basically, excretion, it is such excretion which of what the animal has eaten, which is still inside the intestines. So it is such dung which is still inside the intestines, it hasn't yet come out. So just imagine this impurity is inside. And there's blood all throughout the body of this animal but still Allah gives you pure and clean milk to drink.

00:18:40--> 00:19:27

If you look at it, there are many things in an animal, many things, but two elements in particular mentioned over here, what are the blood and excretion, whatever an animal eats, after that food has been digested? What happens to it? After the food has been digested? What happens to it? It comes out as excretion. And whatever nutrition the animal gains from that food, where does that go into the bloodstream. However, there's also a third thing that is extracted from the food that these animals eat and what is that milk and that milk is pure, it is harmless. And if you compare this milk to blood, or if you compare this milk to dung, it is very harmless. Blood and dunk both of

00:19:27--> 00:19:41

them, they have smell, they have color. But if you compare milk to it, milk is white, right? It is pure. Similarly, in its taste in its smell, it is pure.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

And if you think of it, the purity of the color and the taste and the smell of the smoke is not obtained by adding crazy amounts of chlorine or weird things into it. Like it is done today. You wonder that how do they manage to get this perfect color of this particular drink?

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

Every single time, they must add some kind of food preservatives, the juices and drinks that we drink these days, so much preservatives are added to them with so much food colors added to them artificial flavorings artificial colors. Why? To get that right perfect color.

00:20:18--> 00:20:27

But the color of this milk is not brought by adding weird chemicals to them or harmful chemicals. It's a natural process.

00:20:29--> 00:21:09

And it's white. And it's amazing how this milk is produced inside such factories which are surrounded which are filled with impurities. I mean, many of you just the thought of going near a cow. I mean, I'm sure you can't even imagine many people they see such animals like I'm staying away from it. I'm not even going near it. Or going close to the animal or touching the other even it's something that people cannot imagine. But the milk that comes out you drink it you use it so much. Why? Because it is harmless. It is so harmless. It is so pure. And if you compare this factory that our last panel data has made, do the factories that human beings make? If you think of it, the man

00:21:09--> 00:21:49

made factories, no matter how sanitary no matter how quality control, no matter how well monitored, they are. Still there are accidents, isn't it? And foods they come out contaminated. So many times it may have happened to you you open up an ice cream boxes you're eating, and all of a sudden you see a little piece of plastic, or you're drinking something and you find something in it. It happens so many times no matter how sanitary no matter how well monitored these factories are. There are always some accidents. But it doesn't happen with the factories that are Lost Planet Allah has made these animals from where our milk comes. Never do you have to say, Oh, this milk that has been taken

00:21:49--> 00:21:58

out of this animal it is contaminated with such and such it's possible why because of the harm that we have done to the animal. Not in the natural process that have lost the primary

00:21:59--> 00:22:13

insula Tip Number 73 Allah subhanaw taala says one of them fee her my nephew, what machete boo, fly ash karoon. And for them they're in meaning in these animals are benefits and drinks. So Will they not be grateful?

00:22:15--> 00:22:20

Will they not be thankful to Allah for this lovely drink that Allah subhanaw taala has provided people with

00:22:21--> 00:22:46

seminarians with a minion number 21. a las panatela says we're in a cornfield, an army that we brought no Speaker Murphy boltonia while a comfy ham and Africa to atone woman Hatter cologne. And indeed for you in livestock is a lesson we give you drink from that which is in their bodies. And for you in them are numerous benefits and from them, you also eat.

00:22:47--> 00:22:51

So we see that in these animals are many, many benefits. But the primary benefit is what

00:22:53--> 00:23:08

the milk that we drink. And if you look at it, this milk even that we get from these animals, we don't just drink it in its original form. There are so many milk byproducts, like for example, cheese, yogurt,

00:23:09--> 00:23:18

butter, of course, one thing that people love, ice cream, cheese cakes, so many things you make. From what for milk?

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

Ask someone who cannot have milk, how many things are missing?

00:23:25--> 00:23:33

Someone who is lactose intolerant, who has an allergy to dairy, ask them how many things are missing, just because they cannot have milk.

00:23:34--> 00:23:45

So from milk, you can get so many things, so many things. But we have to see how grateful are we for using this blessing? How grateful are we

00:23:47--> 00:23:52

and many times we don't feel the importance of a blessing until it is taken away from us.

00:23:53--> 00:24:08

We abused the blessing so much. We don't use it properly. We don't thank Allah subhanaw taala for such blessings, and when they're taken away from us, when we're told we cannot have milk we cannot have dairy. Then we realize what great blessings they were.

00:24:09--> 00:24:27

And we see that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he showed us the importance of this lesson how that whenever he would eat something after that he would make the and what was that? Alhamdulillah he lady Amina was upon what you're announcing. And there are various other there as well. Along with it. Can I see you up there now?

00:24:29--> 00:24:50

However, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had milk, he would pray Allahumma berry clinic he was eaten I mean, he made a special Dora after drinking milk that Oh Allah, grant us blessing in this and grant is more of this was it and I mean, who increases for it?

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

And we seen it the first substance that many creatures, human beings included. The first substance that they consume is

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

What milk. So, this shows how important milk is for human beings, how necessary it is. If you think of it milk can also be extracted from plants, you have rice milk today, you have so many different types of milk today. But the milk that comes from animals, or that a mother feed her child is much better. It has much more benefits in it. Then the other milk that is made by human beings from such plants.

00:25:32--> 00:26:08

And this law that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us a lot more Vatican II he was then I mean, who this there are, especially mothers should also read when they are nursing their children, because many times women complain of not having enough milk for their infants, which is why at a very early stage, sometimes they begin supplementing the child. But if you keep making this Allahumma vaticana fee he was eating I mean who give Baraka in this ad, make this milk enough for the child and increase it for the child, then it's so good. So make sure all those mothers expectant mothers as well as nursing mothers make sure you make this right especially when you are feeding

00:26:08--> 00:26:20

your child because Allah subhanaw taala calls this drink Lebanon holla son, it is the purest, it is the best food that you can give to your child that you can feed your infant with.

00:26:22--> 00:26:53

And love and and Hardison even for elders milk is something that is extremely beneficial for human beings. If you don't have milk, if you stay away from milk, you're harming your bones, harming yourself, you're depriving yourself and many times people say I don't like milk, or people say I cannot have white milk. Whereas a loss of hunger I call that loving and Hollis. I don't know why we have to add color to it and add sugar to it and add weird smell to it. Because otherwise we can't have it. We have bink milk or brown milk or yellow milk.

00:26:54--> 00:27:16

So Allah subhanaw taala calls it loving and Collison and believe me we start having Lebanon Palestine, you will really enjoy it's just in our mind sometimes just in our heads that milk has smell or it has a weird taste. Try having it inshallah you'll get used to it. You see this is one of the amazing things that in our religion in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned healthy foods.

00:27:17--> 00:27:29

Recently we learned about dates and grapes. inshallah, today we're also going to learn about honey, all of these foods are very beneficial for us and when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned them in this way you want to have it

00:27:30--> 00:28:19

and if you have it just to please Allah, it's beneficial for you. Another very important lesson that we can learn from these animals is that there is pure milk that is produced from where from between filth and impurity, filth and impurity is a part of these animals. It cannot be taken out. But it doesn't mean that if there is filth and impurity there should be nothing good. Allah subhanaw taala has inspired in every person, Clay as well as shell for Allah Maha fujimura, otaku and taqwa both are inspired in the human being. Now it's up to us. What is it that we produce more? What is it that we focus on more? Because a person can be beneficial can also be harmful? It's only natural.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

But we have to see that what are we producing?

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

Similarly, sometimes we blame our environment a lot

00:28:28--> 00:29:02

is I'm saying these words because everybody around me saying these words. I want to go to such places because everybody's going to such places. I am not going to pray because nobody's praying, I can recite the Quran because nobody can recite the Quran, I can wake up a fragile because nobody wakes up. We blame the people around us. We blame the environment all the time. But what do we see? That still there is a possibility of level and Harlesden to come out from between them and for us. So why can we not do something good, despite how the environment is we cannot blame others but ourselves.

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

Then almost paneled Allah says women, some are rotten.

00:29:08--> 00:29:15

And from the fruit of the dead farms. Some art is a plural of Samara, and nahi nahi.

00:29:16--> 00:29:55

Woman some a lot in the heel, meeting and we also give you to drink from the fruits of the date bombs, while Arnab and the grapevines that tells me the winner, you all take you all make men who from it from what from the fruits of these plants from these trees and these vines, which are dates and grapes, you make from it. Second, a drink. What is fun Hassan and a good provision from the dead palms and the grape lines, you extract two things, what are they? First of all soccer. And secondly, that is

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

what the soccer mean.

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

circled has several meanings of them is a sweet drink.

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

sucker also means a sweet drink

00:30:10--> 00:30:19

from the same root as the word. What do you call sugar in Arabic, Soca and found that sugar suka sugar.

00:30:21--> 00:30:43

So suck up is a sweet drink and risk and hazard and would refer to the solid foods that are extracted from these plants from the date bomb and the grapevine. So soccer would refer to juice the extract of dates and grapes and risk and hazard and would refer to raisins dried it.

00:30:44--> 00:30:47

This is one way of understanding Sakura what is called hazard.

00:30:48--> 00:30:53

Secondly, the word circle is also used for vinegar.

00:30:54--> 00:31:06

The people of Habesha they use the word sucker for vinegar. So from the Jews of grapes and dates, what do you extract

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

vinegar and alternatives can Hassan and then what does it is called has been referred to the solid.

00:31:14--> 00:31:25

Again, raisins dried it or for example, drinks. Thirdly, saccharin also means intoxicant wine.

00:31:26--> 00:31:32

Water on NASA, suka kolomoisky, rain harem

00:31:33--> 00:31:39

subclone. So Sakura. Soccer also means an intoxicant away.

00:31:40--> 00:31:52

So a lot of parents are saying over here, that from the fruits of these plants of date palms and grapevines, what do you do, you make wine. And you also take risk on hustling.

00:31:53--> 00:32:04

So if soccer applies to wine, then risk and hazard and would refer to every lawful food or drink that can be extracted from dates and grapes.

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

Whether it is in the form of solids, or liquids,

00:32:09--> 00:32:35

whether it is raisins, and dried it, or it is some juice, or it is vinegar, or it is any kind of extract. So we see that the Arabs, they would not just eat dates and grapes, but rather they would use it for various purposes, and they would also extract various drinks from them. Just like today, people don't just eat grapes, but you have different types of juices, people also make wine from it

00:32:37--> 00:32:50

in the field ellika indeed, in that iron, surely assigned for who liko me alone for people who understand for people who use their Apple, for those people who use their mind they will take a lesson from this.

00:32:51--> 00:33:05

So we see on the one hand milk is mentioned. And on the other hand, what is mentioned juice, the extract of different fruits. And if you look at it, both of these are lovely drinks milk as well as fruit extract.

00:33:06--> 00:33:20

And they can be used as a base for many sauces for many dishes. You can use them to add flavor, you can use them to add a lot of texture to food. They're very, very beneficial both of these drinks.

00:33:21--> 00:33:49

And we see that Allah subhanaw taala has created many types of fruits. And from those fruits juices can be extracted from those fruits many benefits can be taken however do I mention over here specifically? Which ones, dates and grapes, because both of them are extremely beneficial for us. Think about it, Allah subhanaw taala could have mentioned apples and bananas. He could have mentioned different fruits over here which are mentioned elsewhere in the Quran.

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

But in particular, he mentions dates and grapes, what does that show

00:33:55--> 00:34:03

the health benefits of these fruits? Because previously milk was mentioned in the following is honey will be mentioned

00:34:04--> 00:34:22

here dates and grapes I mentioned which shows that all of these foods are extremely beneficial for human beings. So make sure that you include these things in your regular diet, whether in its fresh form, or in its dry form somewhere or the other, make sure you incorporate them.

00:34:24--> 00:34:32

And we see that in this is a very subtle indication that Allah subhanaw taala has given you the best of fruits,

00:34:33--> 00:34:40

dates and grapes. But how are you using them? What are you making from them?

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

Allah has given you the best provision, but you are using it to make something that is harmful for you. saccharin, soccer is what according to an opinion, it's alcohol. It's wine, intoxicant. So Allah has given you a very good thing, but you

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

are using it incorrectly. And we see the same problem with milk as well today, the kind of food that is given to cows and other animals, the kind of food that is given to them, the milk that is produced today, sometimes it is more harmful than it is beneficial. It's strange how so many people have allergies today. So many people cannot have milk have developed intolerance do something that is so beneficial. Why?

00:35:27--> 00:36:07

Because of the loom that people are doing on such animals on the entire ecosystem, which is affecting their health. It's amazing how sometimes if you go back home and if you mentioned my child cannot have milk, people will be like, Are you serious? How is it possible your child cannot have milk, they find it extremely strange, because for them this concept of food allergies is unknown. Unfortunately, in certain areas today and unfortunately in the most developed areas, it is extremely common. Every other child has allergies today. And why because of the incorrect use that we are making of these blessings that have lost pounds it has given us

00:36:08--> 00:36:51

so in this is an indication that Allah has given you the best things, but it is you you use them incorrectly and you harm yourself. And if you look at it, previously, it was mentioned that in this is designed for who for those people who listen. And now what is mentioned, there is a lesson for who those people who use their minds. Because when a person has alcohol when a person has wine has intoxicants and what is getting affected, his alcohol is getting affected. The intellect is one of the greatest blessings of a loss of penalty. But when a person makes intoxicants out of the Yep, food, then he is causing harm to his own intellect.

00:36:52--> 00:37:11

And Allah subhanaw taala has given us this intellect, not that we use it in wrong ways. Not that we harm our minds, by misusing the blessings by abusing the blessings. No, he has given us these minds, so that we benefit from these blessings properly. And we are grateful to Allah.

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

And this is another very important lesson as well.

00:37:16--> 00:37:26

that something can be a source of benefit. And it can also be a source of harm. Depending on how people use it.

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

The seminars have no fee, and

00:37:30--> 00:37:40

they can be extremely beneficial. It is concerning. But at the same time, they can also be harmful when when people make circles out of them.

00:37:42--> 00:38:04

So it depends on how we use the blessings, how we use the things that Allah subhanaw taala has provided us. Like for example, many times people will say, don't put any computer in your house don't have children use the computer. Why? Because it will abuse it. It's true. But at the same time, it can be a source of a lot of benefit as well. There's an utter

00:38:05--> 00:38:33

similarity, sometimes people will say don't have an email account, they go to extremes. And sometimes people refuse, they will not have an email account, they will use only their parents, or they will use only their child or something like that. They will not make their own work on thinking that the email account itself is the source of evil. No, it's about how you use it. It's about how you benefit from it or how you abuse it. It depends on you entirely. The blessing in itself is not harmful. It's the use that makes it harmful.

00:38:34--> 00:39:09

The beginning of certain natural, we learned about how Allah has caused the rain to come down and there's so much plants and foliage and who benefits from it, different animals and who benefits from those animals, human beings. So we see that plants have been created for who for these animals to eat for these animals to graze on. But if we feed them stuff that is unnatural, stuff that their bodies are not meant to consume, then obviously, what they're going to produce is also going to be extremely unnatural, extremely harmful for those animals as well as for the people who eat those animals.

00:39:10--> 00:39:30

If you look at it, the milk that we learned about it was 11 and holliston. free from any impurities free from any unnatural stuff. But unfortunately, the kind of food that we give to these animals, the kind of food that we put in our bodies, our bodies cannot consume it, because it is unfamiliar and it is not meant for the human bodies.

00:39:31--> 00:39:57

And when they cannot process it properly, when they cannot break down the food property, how will they benefit? There is going to be no nourishment in that food. So it's up to us. How do we use the blessings that Allah spent Allah has provided because many times people go to an extreme and they say don't even have any milk, don't have any milk. They will tell you don't have milk because it's not beneficial. It's not like this. But the fact is that Allah has mentioned milk and

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

so what should you

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

For a healthier choice

00:40:03--> 00:40:12

100 or less so many choices today when you go to the grocery store, you can buy one kind of milk, another kind of milk, filtered milk or non filtered milk. It's up to you wherever you want to do.

00:40:13--> 00:40:24

So when there's so many choices available, make the most natural choice for yourself. Then Allah subhanaw taala mentions the honey, the honeybee in particular
