lesson number 139 pseudo to natural eye number 96 to 113.
Marin, the Colombian fed, whatever you have, will end with Omar in the law he, but what Allah has back in, it is lasting, it is going to last while an edge ASEAN alladhina sabado ajira, whom, and we will surely give those people who were patient, their reward, be a sunny American we are madonn according to the best of what they used to do.
Allah subhanaw taala says men are in the home, whatever that you have, what is it that you have the things of this dunya the various forms of wealth, children, knowledge, position, status, property, degrees, various things, people possess, things that are valuable, and things that are not that valuable. Things that only lasts for some time, and things that last for a longer time. People friendships, various things people have.
So a lot of panel data says that men are in the home, whatever that you have, anything that you possess, whether it is your life, or it is your property, your possessions, things that you love, or things that you don't love that much anything that you have, what's going to happen to it, yen federal, it is going to end it is going to run out it is going to expire
yen further is from the root letter is known for that and the Fed is when something is used up completely.
When something is exhausted, it comes to an end. When it is completely depleted, nothing of it is left.
We learn in the Quran, that Lenin Fidel tabula, and then further Cadena therapy, that if the karamat of a loss of data were to be written, and the pens were made of the trees of this earth, and all of the oceans and the seas were made into ink, and from that, you would write the karamat of Allah, then what would happen
the seas would be depleted, they will be exhausted, all of the water would be consumed nepeta Avila and then further kalama turabi before the kalimat of Allah subhanaw taala come to an end.
So basically nerfed is when something is completely exhausted, it's used up, it's finished, it comes to an end.
So anything that you have, it will eventually run out, it will eventually expire. Any bottle that you have any food that you have. any piece of furniture that you have, any piece of clothing that you have, anything that you have, it will eventually come to an end, you have a car, it will eventually end up in the junkyard, you have a house it will eventually be demolished. Because everything of the zoning is temporary. Everything of this dunya is short lived. And anything that is limited, it will eventually come to an end. It will not remain forever. Eventually it will expire. Eventually it will run out. It cannot remain eternally.
Somewhere in the Caribbean for anything that you have eventually will come to an end.
Just think about it. People who lived in the same places that we're living in 50 years ago, 100 years ago, where their houses maybe you see a few of them still standing. And some of them they're gone.
And those that are standing today, what was in those houses before where's all that stuff? I'm sure those houses were full, where are they today? Where are all those things gone, finished, expired, thrown away. recycled Marine, the command anything that you have is going to be finished
when we are in the law, but that what is with Allah subhanaw taala meaning the Hosea innovyz Rama, the storehouses of His mercy, or whatever is with Allah meaning what Allah has secured has prepared for the hereafter. That is baffling, that is everlasting, that is eternal
backing is actually baffi it is inheriting from the root letters bear coffea from the word Baka and Bakar is to last to remain.
So what is what Allah is going to last? Why?
Because there is no decline to Allah soprano.
Nor is there any decline to the treasures that are with him. The treasures that Allah subhanaw taala owns, there is no decline to them. They will never come to an end.
What do we learn from the Hadith
That if all the people became extremely righteous, and if they were to be given everything that they demanded, every person was given, every wish of is every wish was fulfilled, would that reduce the treasures of a loss of data? It would not reduce at all.
Because men are in the low back and whatever is with Allah is eternal, it is never ending. It never comes to an end.
When an edge is the end and Latina suburu and surely we will definitely reward those people who did suffer.
Where did they do suffer? In the dunya? On what and obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. refraining from his disobedience, refraining from all those things that would upset him.
In the previous, if you think of it, what did we learn? We learned about the importance of fulfilling promises, treaties, contracts.
And a last parameter I said, that do not sell the covenant of Allah for a better price for a sermon and carnelian.
Because if you think about it, anything that you obtain by cheating someone, anything that you obtain illegally, by disobeying Allah soprano data, how long is it going to last? How long is the pleasure going to last? Not for too long. Because it is going to get fun, it is going to run out eventually. But what is what a lot is eternal. But those people who do suffer, suffer and what? That even if they have less, they're content with it.
Even if they have a little bit, they're satisfied with it. That if an opportunity to sin comes right before them, they do suffer, they control themselves, they don't fall for it.
If they have the opportunity to deceive someone, to cheat someone, and to get some and clean and in return, they do suffer. They control themselves.
So those people who do suffer, Allah will definitely reward them Agila whom they reward, the accent Americana year, I'm alone, according to the best that they had been doing.
If you think about it, every person performs deeds. And all of those deeds are off various levels. Some deeds, they're excellent. Think about it, your Salah, sometimes you praise Allah and you feel so good afterwards, you had so much for sure. You felt as though that's how every one of us should be, isn't it so, but at the same time, you praise Allah and you wonder if it was even accepted. Because you tried so hard to have kosher but your heart Your mind kept going elsewhere.
So we see that deeds are of various levels.
But those people who do suffer, what does Allah subhanaw taala say that their reward is going to be according to the best deeds that they have done, it's going to be according to the best deeds that they have done.
Generally what happens, things are averaged out.
Like for example, if you've studied in a particular school for a term, and you have taken certain tests, certain number of assignments, at the end, what happens, all the numbers are taken, and they're totaled up.
And sometimes you have a test on what you did excellent. And at the same time, you did a test on which you did very poor.
Now what you did really good, that is going to be affected because of your poor performance somewhere else.
But we see that those people who do suffer constantly, which deeds are going to be selected the SN deeds and according to them, they're going to be given the reward.
So, those people who do suffer are going to be given the reward according to the best that they had been doing.
We see that this dunya the life of this world, it is for a limited amount of time.
Every person who comes to this dunya eventually he leaves
no person comes to this dunya and remains forever. Every person has a limited amount of time in this world.
So the time of every person and the time of every object even in this dunya is limited. Every person and every object. its lifetime is limited.
Every person who was born he draws closer to his death as each day passes. Why?
Because the countdown has begun from the day he was born. From the day he was born, he is going closer towards his death.
Likewise, every single thing of this dunya anything that is bought anything that is made, it is used, day in and day out and eventually it comes to an end. Think about how many times you've bought bottles of various
condiments, various jams, etc. Every time you go to the grocery store or every other time, you have to buy another one.
And you see it running out in your refrigerator, on your kitchen table. You see it coming to an end. And Allah subhanaw taala shows us the reality of our life through these things.
That everything that you bring, eventually it comes to an end, isn't it?
Eventually it ends up in the garbage. Eventually it is used up. Similarly, your life will also come to an end. And if the things don't end up before you end, then what's going to happen? eventually you're going to die. And when you die, those things are meaningless for you. Because even if they remain once you're gone, how can you use them? How can they be of benefit to you, you cannot consume them at all. So everything of this life is temporary.
And what Allah subhanaw taala has prepared for the Hereafter, that is belkan that is eternal.
What is the loss of penalty prepared for the hereafter? 30 days, the reward that Allah has prepared is gender, gender will remain without interruption. And without any end.
Everything in general in Paradise is going to be eternal. What do we learn it is genetic, or the name of eternity? Holly Dena fee her Avada? What does that show forever, that the blessings of the Hereafter, the pleasures of the hereafter the pleasures that are enjoyed in general, they're eternal, they're never going to be interrupted, they're never going to expire, they're never going to come to an end. Life is not going to end youth is not going to end and blessings are not going to end.
We learned in solitude, I have 108 Alpha and Omega two that they're awarded the Hereafter is a bestowal that is uninterrupted later modules.
Similarly, in sort of thought, if 53 and 54, we learn how to or Duda Leo man has a in the header that is una mela hoomin nerfed. That is what you mean the righteous are promised for the day of account. Indeed, this is our provision for it, there is no depletion, it will never be depleted, it will never run out.
So what is the lesson in this for us
that a person should not busy himself, collecting the things of this dunya
because no matter what you collect, eventually, it's going to end or you are going to end.
Your relationship, your companionship with the things of this world is temporary. It's not eternal.
Therefore don't spend your life collecting these things. And serving these things and looking after them. rather spend your life in depositing what you love with almost.
Because if you deposit that with Allah, then it's going to be eternal. What do we learn, that will matter and faculty to maintain for Who are you live for who whatever you spend in his cause, Allah will compensated meaning he will bring about what is better than it, he will give you something that is better in the hereafter. And everything that you spend in the way of Allah, that you do, we're in the law, you will find it with Allah subhanaw taala.
We learn that I show the learner she relates that once you had a goat slaughtered, and she distributed the meat among the poor people, and also among the relatives, so majority of it was distributed.
And she kept only some of it for her house, so that she could eat it so that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could eat it.
So what happened? When the Prophet said about a certain game, he asked as to how much meat was left. So I should have replied that she had distributed everything except one piece of the shoulder, but that's what she had kept for herself. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that apart from the piece of shoulder, all of the meat was saved, that everything that you gave all of that was saved and whatever you kept with yourself that has not been saved,
everything that you gave to others, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it has been deposited for you were in the Hereafter, and what you get for yourself what you ate and consumed yourself, that has not been deposited for the hereafter. So what do we learn? If a person keeps everything in this dunya for himself, he spends his life consuming these things collecting these things. Then they are temporary, his relationship with them is going to be temporary.
But if he deposits them in the hereafter if he deposits them with Allah subhanaw taala
if he gives it in charity, if
He gives it feasible and then in reality, what is he doing? He is making those things eternal for himself. Because he will be given something by Allah subhanaw taala, that is going to be back and that is going to be eternal, it's never going to be consumed.
But who can do this? Those people who have suffered,
only a person who has suffered can be content with less.
Only a person who has suffered can give away something that he loves today, for his hereafter.
Only a person who has suffered can accept delayed gratification, a person who does not have suffered, what does he want, he wants to be rewarded immediately, he wants to enjoy immediately. But a person who is patient, what does he say, right now, I will make do with less, but for later, I want more I can delay my reward, I can delay the pleasure, I can delay the gratification,
who can do this, the one who has suffered only such a person can do this.
Which is why Allah Subhana Allah says in the manual for sabi Luna duramo, the lady who said Sora to Zuma, and pretend
that indeed the patient, they will be given their reward without any account,
meaning unlimited reward they will be given. Why because of their suffering, because of their patients.
And if we see this in linear, that many times people will make do with less, why? Because they want something better later on, isn't it so
like, for example, a person will compromise on the size of his house. Why, so that he can save more so that later on, he can buy a house for his family.
Whereas if he's spending more money right now, then he will not be able to afford a house later on.
Similarly, if a person is investing his money into buying something, in order for the money to grow, then he has to do suffer.
If he has $1,000, he can go enjoy those $1,000. But one is that he invested in something in some business, so that later on he can get more who can do this, a person who has suffered
those people who do suffer, only they will get the reward according to the best that they have been doing.
And if you think about it, the life of this dunya is a constant test. It's a constant trial. We learned earlier that even through our contracts, our promises almost panatela tests,
that once we have made one promise, we're offered with another opportunity it comes right before us. Now it's up to us whether we keep that promise and we break it for the sake of that we're in the benefit. This world is constantly a test. Now what is it that keeps a person firm on obedience to Allah subhanaw taala it's solid.
So a person who does suffer in this dunya don't think that his Saba will be wasted, Allah will reward him
namita funny him, whoever does righteous action, whoever performs good deeds, whoever does righteousness, and what is slowly,
slowly is that which is right and proper, that which is good. So any person who does slyly deed means occurring from a male or a female. Meaning whether this person is a man or a woman that they'll care for and unser Hamza? No, sir.
whether that person is a man or a woman, regardless of gender,
well, who am woman on but there's a condition and what is that condition? That he must be a believer.
This person must be a believer.
So three things I mentioned over here, righteous deeds. Secondly, gender doesn't matter. Thirdly, Eman is necessary.
So if a person does righteousness with a man, only then it is accepted. If a person performs good deeds with a man, only then those good deeds are going to be worthy of some reward.
And gender does not matter over here. What does it show to us?
That Yes, men and women are different, biologically, emotionally, mentally, in different ways. They're completely different. their roles are different. what is expected of them is different.
Sometimes when it comes to religious obligations, even they are slightly different. Depending on gender, they're slightly different. They vary. However, when it comes to reward for good deeds, there is no difference. When it comes to recompense for the good deeds that they have performed, there's absolutely no difference. It doesn't mean that
Just because a person is a male, he breeds Allah he will get more reward. Or just because a person is a woman and she gives her the thought she will get more reward compared to a man. No one has looked at a man, effort, sincerity. These things are considered, gender is not considered when it comes to recompense when it comes to reward or punishment.
So Manami lasala henneman Zachary Owens De La Hoya mcminn on but a man is certainly a condition.
Then what is their award for such a person
that fell under here now who so surely we will definitely make him live? We will give him a life. What kind of a life Hyatt and a life that is for you. But that is good, that is pleasing, one energy and the home and surely we will definitely reward them a general home, they reward us anyway. Can we I'm alone again, according to the best that they had been doing, according to the best deeds that they used to perform.
So what's the reward of a person? Who does our mozzarella? Who would imagine the promise of Allah is that such a person will be given a good life to live? Nguyen from the roof address her Yeah, yeah. Hyatt and what is Hyatt life
and no yen, we will definitely make him live a life that is higher than
where, where will this good life be?
First of all, in this dunya in this dunya, a person will be granted a good life to live. What does it mean by that, that a person will have a lot of blessings, that a person will have a lot of riches, that a person will be very wealthy, he will never suffer from any harms any illness. No, that's not the case. Higher than lever means that a person will be content, that he will be happy that what he will do is going to be correct and proper, what he will eat is going to be hilarious. Because it is good. So his food is going to be halaal what he's going to wear is going to be Halloween, his actions are going to be good, they're going to be beneficial, they're going to be
productive. Similarly, he will have alfia he will have well being and he will also have calfire sufficiency, that a person is content with whatever he has,
he will have a reliable adore, he will have happiness and contentment and satisfaction with the decree of Allah subhanaw taala the actions that he performs in this dunya they will be productive
because many times what happens people do certain actions but there's no better kinda there is no Baraka people spend so much time so much money, but at the end they get nothing they get no benefit out of it, but a person who does Amazonia with a man a loss of penalty the promises of a good life in this dunya
secondly, hi Adam the evil altar refers to a good life in Bursa
meaning after the life of this dunya until the day of judgment, after a person has died, the first stage of a hero will be alive that is
because remember that the grave is either roba min reality either it is a garden from the gardens of Paradise or it is it from the pits of hellfire. So, in the bursa, he will have a good life, he will be happy he will be content he will be satisfied.
And thirdly highest unbeliever also refers to a good life where in the hereafter engine that a person will be of the successful ones. The sir or the SIR eat those who are successful. Not those who are unlucky
fella no here no heightened by Eva, well in the unknown eduroam brct Macedonia omalu and a person will also be given good reward for the deeds that he had been doing. Were in this dunya as well as the hereafter.
So we see that Allah subhanaw taala has a lot to give. It's not that award is limited to the Hereafter, or it's limited to the dunya he can give at both places. He can give him dunya in Bursa and also in the hereafter it's up to us how much we want. This is why we should always make up banner ad in epic dunya Hassan orfila hora de hacer una work in Urbana, because that is success.
So we see that higher atom flavor in the life of dystonia is a reward for a person who does almost solely with email.
And again, hi Atlanta UVA is not just related to
A person's outer state, but it has to do with a person's inner state, inner well being, not just physical well being but also emotional, spiritual will be. In this world, if you look at it, many, many blessings of Allah subhanaw taala has dimensioned that so many blessings that Allah bestows on people, to some Allah has given more and to others Allah has given less. Now, it does not mean that a person who has been given more, a person who has more of these blessings is certainly righteous. And a person who has been given less blessings he is not that righteous, that is not the criteria.
Happiness is not determined by what you have. Happiness has to do with the state of the heart, it has to do with contentment.
And a person who obeys Allah soprano Tada, he will be happy in his heart,
he will be contented with whatever Allah has given to him, whether it is limited, whether it is very little, or it is a lot,
because he will focus on every single blessing that Allah has given him. He will not just count the fingers, that he has the numbers, the number of money that he has, but what will he look at that and hamdulillah I have, well, I have fresh air to breathe, the rain is coming down from the sky for my benefit, I have fresh food to eat, he will look at all of these blessings.
So we see that higher than ever has to do with being positive with being happy with being content. It includes optimism. It includes peace, tranquility, contentment, learner satisfaction, not that a person is constantly greedy for more. And we see from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, riches, Alina does not mean that a person has great amounts of wealth. being rich does not mean that a person has great amounts of wealth. But riches is self contentment. Rina is self contentment, it is a satisfaction of the heart, it is when a person is happy with whatever Allah has given him, he is satisfied with them.
And when a person is satisfied, only then he can be happy. Only then he can do good to others.
Only then he can be patient. Only then he can be constant on obedience to Allah subhanaw taala only then he can refrain from disobedience.
And if a person is unhappy, if a person is always counting, what is it that I don't have the things that he's missing in his life, then he cannot be motivated to do good. So far, I know he I know Hyatt and by Eva is contentment satisfaction being positive, not that a person has abundant wealth.
Because if you look at it, all the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala, even they underwent a lot of hardship, physical hardship, financial hardship, they went through all of that. So it doesn't mean that if a person has less, he is disobedient, or he is sinful on him as a result of a loss of parental data.
And if a person has more allies extremely happy with him, because you see many people who are going through so many hardships, but they're happy, they're fine.
And there are only a few people, those lucky ones who are given this positive thinking even when they're going through extreme hardship.
There was a friend of mine, who, herself, she fractured her foot, her mother had a surgery at the same time. And her father lost his job.
And the surgery that was here. They were living in Canada at that time. And they didn't have Canadian citizenship. So you can imagine the costs of that surgery. And you can imagine if the father didn't have a job, and you can imagine if the daughter had fractured her foot, even she couldn't work. But if you met them, they were the happiest people you ever met.
If you went to their house, they would make you smile, they would make you laugh. This is higher than
that a person is content. It doesn't mean that a person is careless, or that a person has become heedless, or his heart has become very hard. No, it means that a person is content and satisfied with the decree of Allah subhanaw taala. He's happy with whatever Allah has given him. And he is grateful for what he has. He's not counting the things that he does not have, he counts the things that Allah has given him. And this is what makes a person more obedient. Because remember that Hadees that whoever Allah which is good for you save a lot puts him to trial. Because when a person is put to trial, then what happens? Either His goodness comes out, or the evil that is in his heart
that comes out
and On the contrary, a person who is
turns away from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala because over here what is mentioned, the person who I mean lasallian with a man, he will have a good life. But if a person turns away from our books Allah, he turns away from the Quran, he turns away from a man, what kind of a life will he live? He will live a life that is constricted, that is unhappy, that is full of unhappiness and misery.
We learned this from Surah Taha, I have 124 to 126 there are lots of panel data says woman are settled on victory for in Allahumma Asia Dominica will naturally Yokoyama tea aroma and whoever turns away from my remembrance, indeed he will have a depressed life. Marie schatten banca depressed life and we will gather him on the Day of Resurrection as someone who is blind. He will be brought in the day of judgment as a blind person. And this person will ask Rob Bielema karma. Why did you raise me up as blind? What are the controversy our eye could see in the dunya Allah subhanaw taala will take a delicate etica tuna fantasy into our eyes I add came to you but you forgot them Okay
daddy can do mutton sir and today you will be forgotten. You forgot my if you turned away from me, today, I will turn away from you. Again, this does not mean that a person who turns away from the Quran, who does not do animal sila, he will be very poor, he will have many physical problems, he will become extremely ill. No this is not what the meaning is. What does it mean that a person will be unhappy.
A person will live a life of fear. He will live a life of discontent.
a life full of problems and misery.
He will never be able to get over things. He will never be able to get over people whom he has lost or things that he has lost or the losses that he has incurred in the past he will never be able to get over them. He is constantly destroying himself eating himself up. This is a result of what turning away from the vicar of Allah. And remember they could have Allah does not just mean studying the Quran. It includes reciting the Quran. It includes praying the Salah, it includes worshiping Allah soprano, Darla,
any person who turns away from that he will have a difficult life.
And a person who turns to Allah, He will have a good life. And we see this so common today that people have so much money, but they're not satisfied. They're constantly greedy for more. A person has a house, he has one job, but he wants to move to a bigger house. He wants to get a better car. And all that he's concerned about all the time is paying the bills paying the mortgage is working here working there. This is taking the piece of their life away.
Sometimes I wonder people who spend so much time so much effort in buying houses, for example, working day in and day out. What are they thinking that eventually How long will they live in that house?
This recently someone was telling me that their work. There's a woman who works with them who has been working at that place for about 40 years, a very long time. She's been working over there. And she's extremely old. And she must retire at this point. And she lives alone and all woman. No children live with her. No grandchildren live with her. No husband lives with her. She lives alone. And despite this extreme old age, she works every single day. Why? Because she has to pay her mortgage.
When I heard that, I was like, okay, even if she buys the house, how long is she going to live there? How long? People don't think they don't think long term. They're only thinking about some time.
There's so much emphasis that is put on owning your own house, having money, having your own car, having paid your mortgage, even when you do that, then what how long will you live? How long will you enjoy this? You don't really meet your children, we're going to inherit this house from you. What are you spending your life in? This is a life of misery that a person is working day in and day out to do something that is not going to bring him any benefit, any benefit at all.
And if a person remembers that Martin the Colombian fed Omar in the law, he back then his priorities will be proper,
then he will have correct priorities then he will focus on the hereafter. Then he will realize that America will Bernina Xena to hire to dunya that the wealth and children what are they? They're the Xena of this life. Wolbachia to sila hat, but the enduring good deeds What are they hiding under because However, there are better in the sight of your Lord, for reward, a loss of control
Don't rewards them? Well, why don't Amala and better for ones hope. This is what one should hope for, not the things of this dunya but the reward of the hereafter.
It is said that even our best will they learn who he used to pray to Allah subhanaw taala that Allahumma near any female as a penny will badly fee that Oh Allah satisfy me, give me contentment in what you have provided me were badly fee and give me Baraka in that. Make that enough for me made that sufficient for me, made me content and happy with that.
Because ultimately, no matter how much a person has, if he is not satisfied in his heart, the external things cannot bring him happiness, what brings them happiness. It's the inner happiness, it's a satisfaction that he has in his heart. So we should pray to a loss of data for this satisfaction for this contentment. Because if we have that, then we're the richest people of this world. And if we lack that, then we are the most unfortunate miserable and poor ones.
