Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
lesson number 147 SoTL Islam is number 66 to 77.
blob Docomo ledi, use je la Komal fulfill Buhari. It is your Lord who drives the ship for you through the sea
or become your Lord meaning Are you human beings are you people, it is only your Lord, the one who created you, the one who deserves your worship, the one who provides for you, he is the only one who use je la Komal phulka He is the one who drives the ship for you were filled battery in the sea
use G is from the roof veterus de jeem Well, from the word zedge one
and that one is to move forward is is to drive it is to drive something to make something move forward. Just as a person makes a camel walk, he drives the camel, he drives a car. Similarly, his jet is also used for driving the ships forward, meaning propelling them forward. And this word in particular is used for driving something time after time how by pushing it.
Because for example, when a ship is being propelled forward, sometimes it's just put in a certain direction, and it's left to the wind, the wind will do the job. And if a situation demands that the captain should come, and he should take over and he should steer the ship in a particular direction, then he comes in does it constantly. He's not driving the ship. It's left to the wind it's left to the sails. So it's to drive something time after time. How? By pushing it.
So up Docomo lady used Gila Kemal phulka. He is the one who drives the ships for you. How, first of all, by making water have such properties that enable ships to float
that enable ships to float and not to drown. Because there's so many things, if you put them on top of the water, what's going to happen, they're going to drown immediately. But we see that large seagoing vessels, huge ships that are heavy, that are carrying tons and tons of weight, what happens to them, they're able to float Why? Because the water is of such properties that on it ships can float.
And secondly, how else does he drive the ships by sending favorable winds? Because imagine if winds are blowing against the ship, then obviously it won't be able to float it won't be able to proceed in a particular direction. So by sending the favorable winds, what happens he causes the ships to flow filled by hurry in the sea
litho Whoa, why is it so that he allows you to sail on the sea he allows your sea large seagoing vessels to float upon the water and to proceed towards a particular direction. Why is it so Lita with a hole so that you all can seek? You all can update men Fort Lee from his bounty?
Men over here, according to some is off ban. It's explanatory. That what is it that you seek his father. Others have said that men over here is a it's extra. Meaning in the context, it doesn't really carry a meaning. And it only gives a sense of lit up the whole public view so that you can seek his father. So we don't necessarily have to translate the word over here. You understand? Because it doesn't exactly carry your meaning. It's just as many times where is a man is
so lit up the who mean for me.
According to others men over here is often
what is why me It's from Bob and bardis. Some of so main family meaning some of his bounty. So he has enabled the ships to float on the sea so that you can go you can travel different different places, oversee overwater, and you can obtain different types of fuddle that Allah soprano Tara has provided you with.
Now what are the various types of fun that people can obtain by traveling over the sea by traveling over water?
That first of all, when you are able to go on ships on boats, you're actually able to fish you're able to extract a lot of seafood from the water. And if that was not possible, then we would only be able to eat those fish that the sea would throw outside of itself. So it's a big blessing that people can go to different places on the sea and
Fish different types of seafood and people can benefit from that.
Similarly, with upto home in Fort Lee, it applies to not just worldly provision, but it also applies to you know, religious provision, worldly provision, like I mentioned to you fishing similarly, person can go somewhere he can trade, he can get profit from there, he can go somewhere, buy some stuff, because everything does not go everywhere. So, many things are transported from one place to the other, how overwater but religious provision how,
like, for example, a person travels from one place to the other in order to gain knowledge. These days, you just catch a flight. And that's it, you can go from one place to the other, but before when people would have to travel and if water came in the middle, they would have to go by sea, they would have to travel by water. And it was made possible because of being able to travel over water.
Similarly, religious fuddle includes pilgrimage, that a person is able to travel over water oversee and he is able to go all the way to Makkah and then over there, perform Hajj or perform
Lita woman funnily enough, who indeed he can or he is ever become with you all or Haman Especially Merciful
he is very merciful towards you or people. Notice Rahim has been used and the Rockman gives a meaning of one who is Entirely Merciful. And Lehane gives a meaning of especially mercy
that he is Especially Merciful towards towards human beings, that they are able to gain so many benefits, because of so many things that Allah subhanaw taala has provided for them
which other creature travels by sea like this on ships, so they can go and consume various types of foods or you can go travel different places. Yes, there are certain animals who are only able to swim through the water over very long periods in order to lay their eggs in certain places. And then, you know, have children over there etc, and go back, for example, penguins. Similarly, we see turtles.
However, we see that human beings the way they travel overseas, and the way they reach different places. The kind of benefits they obtain, no other creature does. No other species does. It's only human beings.
So enter who can become rahima he is Especially Merciful towards you or human beings.
So what does this ayah show to us? That Allah soprano Tara has bestowed many favorites upon human beings, many, many favorites.
And among them, is the favorite that is mentioned in this ayah. And why has a love bestowed disfavor upon human beings out of His grace, out of his mercy, out of his kindness towards human beings?
What either Masako, and when it touched you what abou the harm, were feel badly in the sea.
When you're traveling by sea, and some book reaches you,
what does that mean? It's some kind of a harm, a detriment a loss that a person suffers where,
first of all, in his physical body, secondly, in his knifes, and thirdly, in his circumstances in his one,
so when some difficulties strikes you when it touches you were at sea. So what kind of load could it be? Think about it.
Physical First of all, like, for example, many times it happens that a person is traveling by sea and he becomes seasick.
And it's possible that, you know, they take several kinds of medication, but it still doesn't work. They just can't wait to get off the ship.
But when you're in the middle of the sea, how can you just get off the ship? You can't you have to wait until you reach the shore, which is going to take its time.
Similarly, abroad could be like for example, the person feels afraid or there's a storm and people are extremely cold. They are drowning in the water. extremely cold. It's the middle of the night, perhaps.
Similarly, it could be the fear of drowning because of the storm in the air while in circumstances a huge storm. So when any kind of disaster strikes you while you are at see what happens in Bala he is lost, who is lost mentally Runa, whom you call upon Illa Yahoo except only him
mentor the owner, those whom you call upon
what happens to them. They're Burleigh. They're lost, meaning the other beings whom you worship otherwise, whom you pray to whom you rely upon whom you ask for help, what happens at that moment, they're done.
What does bola mean? Bala is when something is lost, when you cannot find it. Similarly, Bulma often
translate that for me,
one landmark, the water got lost were 11 in the milk, meaning it has been mixed, it has lost its identity, you cannot see it, you cannot find it, it's lost completely, you cannot extract it.
Whereas if you put something solid, in the milk, what can happen, you can easily take it out afterwards. If you don't like it, you can take it out. But if you add some liquid, it's going to be lost, it's going to lose its identity completely.
So one lamented the runer in that Yahoo, those whom you call upon, they're lost from you. This has been understood in two ways.
That first of all, they're lost, meaning they don't come to help.
You call them, you pray to them, you invoke them, but they don't help you. They're lost it as if you've lost them completely.
Similarly, many times what happens at sea,
that when people are in some kind of difficulty,
they try to call, they try to make phone calls. They try to contact the relief services, etc. But what happens, they're unable to connect with them.
They're unable to connect with them, or they can't find any means of being able to connect with them.
Secondly, Bala mentor, the owner Illa, Yahoo. has also been understood as that all of those beings that disappear from your mind, they get lost from what from you, you don't even think about them at that time. Because you know that they cannot help you. So who do you call upon them in the year only?
You only remember Allah and it is only Allah who comes to your aid who comes to help you who responds to your call?
fella than when net jackal he saved you. Then when Allah responds to your calls, he responds to your prayers, and he saves you from drowning and he delivers you ll berry to the land. You safely reach the shore, what happens to you turn away? Turn away from what from thanking him?
What kind of insane cat food
and the human being is extremely ungrateful.
And insanity over here is gents meaning the human being in general. He is extremely ungrateful notice it's not cafard What's the word cat food, very ungrateful.
Because look at all the blessings that Allah has bestowed on him. He is the one who responds to his prayers. He is one who rescues him, he enabled him in the first place to travel by sea. And when he's in trouble, he calls upon Allah. And in that time, he makes so many promises. But later on, when he gets to safety, the first one whom he forgets is who have lost.
What can insert occur for.
Many times, people remember a loss of data when,
when they are in difficulty. They will forget the doctors, they will forget their friends and their relatives, they will forget everyone, and they know that the only one who can assist them is through a loss.
Because the lamented aroona in the year.
Yes, primarily it is for those who do shake, but generally if you think about it as well, when we are in need, who do we call upon? Who do we ask for help people around us, but in extreme situations, people realize that no one can help them but Allah
And at that time, many people they made promises with
that if you save me, if you help me, if you deliver me I will do this, I will do that. However many times as soon as the difficulty is over, as soon as that chapter is over, what happens? It's as if nothing happened before. It as if no promises were made. It says if a person never called upon a loss,
we don't insert lokman number 32. What either Russia homodyne kabuli there are we'll know how much cleaner that would be. And when waves come over them like canopies, huge waves coming over them, just like roofs like canopies like umbrellas. What
happens this applicant almost surprised how sincere to him in religion, meaning they only call upon his fellow manager whom in and barely Fermin whom Mako does it but when he delivers them to the land, there are some of them who are moderate and who remain upright who are grateful to Allah afterwards.
Well, Maria, how to be a Latina, in colo hotair in the food
and non rejects our signs except everyone treacherous and ungrateful.
So we see that people react in different ways when they are taken out of problems. Some people, they become extremely ungrateful by forgetting everything that had happened before.
Other people, they remain firm about their religion, it becomes a turning point for them, isn't it? So?
Like, for example, many times people will be in an accident, or they will suffer from a major illness or one of their relatives will suffer from a major illness and that will become like a turning point for them in their life, isn't it? Many times it happens. They realize that the only one who can help me Zoo unless
and this is why I should turn to him all the time, not just when I need him, but all the time. But there are other people who don't even take a lesson from that. And when a person does not take a lesson from such situations, then he is distanced farther away from Allah, he becomes extremely ungrateful.
If I'm into, then do you feel secure?
Do you first then meaning then after what has happened with you? After your experience at sea, when you were about to die when you had a near death experience almost? Still, after that you feel secure. You don't feel worried? Aren't you terrified? Aren't you concerned that I Josefa that he could cause to sink become with you, he could cause you to sink where janee been big a part of the land
meaning he could cause a part of the land to swallow you in Josefa York suffers from causing fat from cassava and cassava is to sink because when something sinks what happens? It disappears. You cannot see it anymore. from the same root hos or kossuth is also used for
any idea. Eclipse, lunar eclipse for example, why? Because at that time the moon is it says though it has drowned, it cannot be seen.
So FM in tune and Josefa become genuine. Janet is the side of something, a section of something a part of something and Albert, as you know, is lead.
So do you feel secure, that he will not cause a part of the land inside of the land to swallow you?
Just like our own was? What happened to her on the earth opened up and it swallowed him in.
So you think that you can only drown when you're at sea? When you're traveling on water? No, he can even cause you to drown when you're on land. He can even cause you to be swallowed by land, not just the water in the ocean. But also the land on which you live.
Oh you said or he could send la come upon you helsley when a storm housing is from the letters house father. And as you know, house bear is used for small pebbles and how sleep is used for a storm in which a violent wind a stormy wind in which there are tiny pebbles and small rocks. So something like a sandstorm
similarly the word hasim also applies to a hailstorm
because even hail stones are like what? hail stones right? small rocks, ice rocks, that's what they are. They hit you just like rocks do
or do you think that he cannot send upon you a house and that house it could bury you It could destroy you. Just as it was sent upon the people of Lutheranism
someone that that you do then you all will not find local for yourself work Elan, an advocate a protector from him.
So in this ayah is a warning that allows wrath his punishment can come upon you anyway. While on SSI
And also on land, and also in air.
Wherever you are, anywhere you're traveling, anywhere you're residing, remember, that he can send his punishment upon you,
the way water can swallow you, the earth can also swallow. And what comes from the sky can also vary.
Generally, people are more fearful of a loss of final data when they are in a vulnerable situation. For example, if the traveling by sea because they know that the only way out will be by the help of Allah.
Generally, if you're on land, something happens you can get out of the building, you can run away from that land, you can drive away from it. But when you're on sea, what can you do? The only places the water which is another name for death at that time. So generally people are more cautious when they are traveling by sea. However, in this is a warning that once you leave the sea and you go home, when you're on land, how can you become so ungrateful that you forget about a loss?
How can you continue to disobey Him? With what confidence do you do that? You think he cannot send this punishment upon you over here?
The fact of the matter is that a person is under the unescapable authority of almost kind of data all the time, no matter where he is. He can never ever escape the authority of the power of the grip of Allah. In total Rockman number 33. Allah subhanaw taala says Jamar shallow Genie will fit in is the 13th and 10. For the woman authority somewhat you will find fuzu, Latin for Luna 11 so far,
all company of the jinn and mankind. If you are able to pass beyond the reaches of the heavens and the earth, then press go and try to escape the earth. Go and try to escape the summer what you will not be able to pass except by authority from almost a predator.
So the thing is that we are always under the authority under the power of a loss apprentice. We can never escape. Never ever. Nowhere Can we say that if we are here we are safe from the punishment of a loss.
We can be saved from the Wrath of Allah, then we can disobey him over here and we cannot disobey him over there.
Because many times people are more careful about obeying the Laws of Power data in certain places. Like for example, when they are amongst people who know them, they'll be more obedient but when they're alone, then what's going to happen music is blasting her arm is coming on the TV, swear words are coming out of their mouths. But when they're in the masjid, when they're at the school when they are with certain people, then they become more cautious they become more careful. Why? Because they don't have the fear of almost.
Because if a person truly fears Allah, then he will be concerned about obeying him no matter where he is.
No matter where he is. At what time at what place with who it doesn't matter, because he is fearful of multiplanetary
in total, and am I 65 we learn only one or the other and never thought I'd ever mean for a woman to do Nico say he is the one who is able to send upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet even
no matter where you are. He can finish you within moments. So this is a lesson for us. That we should not choose certain places to be more obedient to
the whole earth belongs to Allah, the whole creation belongs to Allah. Therefore, no matter where we are, no matter who we are with, no matter what state we are in, we should be concerned about pleasing Allah subhanaw taala
amento or do you feel secure and you're either come that he could return you that he could send you back fee in it, meaning in the sea to the sea donathan O'Hara at another time.
The word out often is used for once or sometimes at times. And Daleiden, O'Hara, what does it mean at another time?
So do you feel secure that he cannot send you back into the sea at another time at another occasion
or back into a similar situation again, a similar situation Like what? Like that of the storm
that you manage to come out of one storm out of one difficulty once you think he cannot put you in a similar situation again
for your seller, so he could send la come upon
You are suffering a hurricane Mina V of the wind causes is from the roof letters of sod.
And us is to break something. And passive is such a wind that breaks and destroys everything that it comes across.
It breaks and destroys everything that it comes across.
It is said that a destructive storm on land is a house with the word that we read earlier house Laban.
So a destructive storm where on land is what it has. And on sea it is awesome.
Because on land whether it is a hurricane, or a hailstorm or a sandstone, any kind of storm that comes on land.
There are a lot of pebbles in it. Why? Because the earth is full of sand, mud, Clay, pebbles, rocks. And at sea. The destructive storm is called passive. Why? Because what does it break?
ships, boats, vessels, that's what it breaks. So this is why it's called a positive.
So Aren't you worried? Aren't you afraid that he could send you back into the sea again, into a similar storm again, but this time the storm would be much more severe that it would break it would destroy your ships. And when they are broken, what's going to happen to them? Obviously they're going to drown. Previously what happened you survived
because Allah responded to your calls.
And he took you safely where fella mana Jakob lol burgee, he took you to the land he delivered you.
But over here, he will not deliver you.
He will cause your ships to be broken, and what's going to happen and for you real quick, and then he can drown you. Why be macrofossil because of your denial, your denial of what of the blessing that Allah had given you previously.
Allah gave you a chance to live a chance to survive, he saved your life. But still you are not grateful to him.
So he can send you back in another situation which is much more severe. And that will cause you to die. So much that you do, then you will not find lecan for yourselves or Elena against us B for it devaron an Avenger.
You cannot find anyone to come and follow and take revenge from me.
The beer is from the reflectors. Deborah and Deborah and what does the army to follow enter beer dabir meaning one who follows one who pursues. And it's primarily used for someone who follows the guilty party. And he pursues them until he can take revenge from them until he can get some compensation out of them. So you will not find anyone to be it a beer to come in, pursue me to take revenge for your death for your loss for your destruction. Nobody can come and demand revenge when
generally, when a person survives a disaster,
it is only natural for him to go back to his normal routine Afterwards, he will travel to the same places, he will go to the same work, he will continue with his normal life. And even if a person avoids traveling, ultimately, at one point or another, he does have to travel.
Like for example, if a person has had a really bad car accident, and he was saved, and he says that's it, I'm not driving again.
Even if he says I'm not driving again, he is going to end up sitting in some vehicle at some point or another, isn't it whether it is his own car or it is somebody else's car or it is a train or some kind of public transport something or the other he is going to go back to it.
Similarly, no matter how much people try to avoid traveling, they do have to travel for various purposes.
So why do we think that if we have been saved at one occasion, we will never be exposed to another disaster.
And because of that we keep on doing whatever we want to. That is why we remain ungrateful to Allah for his help for the fact that he saved us for the fact that he gave us a new life. Why do we do that?
So we see that once a person has survived, he should never think that he has survived forever.
Just because danger has subsided once a person should not think that he will never see it again, he will never face it again, a person should never, ever feel secure.
And what do we see in this is that when a person is ungrateful for the help of a love for the blessings of Allah, when a person denies the help of Allah, then what happens? A lot of panels Allah puts him in a similar situation again,
because what do we see over here for you to come back after? And before that, and you're either configured data
that sometimes matter how much a person tries to avoid those places, avoid those people avoid those circumstances, because he was not grateful previously, what happens he is put in a similar situation again.
So what is this show that sometimes life becomes difficult problems keep coming back to us, because we have not taken a lesson. Because we have been ungrateful.
Sometimes it happens with people that for instance, a person ends up in a car accident, and he ends up in another car accident, and another one and another one. Similarly, a person might complain that my hand got burnt, and then again, the other hand gets burned, and the foot gets burnt, and the finger gets burnt. repeatedly, it keeps on happening. And you wonder what is happening?
You face a problem once, and it happens again, and it happens again, why is it happening, because we have not taken a lesson from what happened before.
We have not been grateful to Allah for the relief that he provided us the first time. And so he keeps putting us in the same situations again and again. So that we can learn,
oh, you're either complete or not. And he can send you back at another time in a similar situation.
So this shows that when we don't take a lesson from the different things that happen in our lives, than what happens, difficulties, they increase in our life.
So we need to be grateful for the relief that a lot provides us.
Because sometimes it happens that we're going through some illness through some pain through some family problem. And we pray to a loss of panel data day in and day out. And once it's over what happens, we don't do sugar, as much as we asked him for help.
This is a form of ingratitude.
And later, we're put into a similar situation again.
So in this is a severe warning for us.
And if you look at it at the end of the ayah, Allah subhanaw taala says some mulata do local Marlena v debeer, you will not find anyone to come and take revenge from us for the loss that you have incurred for the suffering that you have encountered. No one can come and take revenge.
You see, if a person ends up in a car accident, because of another person's fault, then what does he do?
He will get some compensation from the guilty party, doesn't it? If he doesn't admit he will take him to court, the law will ensure that the innocent gets his compensation. But if a person scar has been washed away by the water into the ocean, who can he claim some compensation for?
Who can you go to? Who can he demand some kind of compensation for no one, a person cannot do anything.
Similarly, if a person is ill, at one point, he might say, oh, because this person hit me because this person passed me that contagious disease that I have it and he gets very upset with him. And perhaps he pays for his surgery or whatever, because of the injury that he has caused to the other person.
But if a person gets ill, it's not a contagious disease. Nobody attended. Nobody's struck him. Nobody blew him in the face or anything like that. Who can you demand revenge from
if a part of the building falls upon him breaking his leg breaking his foot who can invent a wrench from no one? So when Allah puts you in a difficulty you cannot take revenge from anyone. The only one who you can blame is who? yourself
because Allah subhanaw taala he is just in his decisions.
Instead of the chumps I know 14 and 15 we learn forget the Whoo hoo hoo ha for them them or lay him or boom beat them beat him for somewhere her. Well, you have for Cuba,
that the people have some mood, what did they do? They denied the messenger and they kill the sheikh and
so their Lord brought down upon
Destruction for their sin and made it equal upon all of them. And he does not fear the consequences of it. When I hover over Cuba, he does not fear the consequences of it.
Because many times when people are taking revenge, they're afraid. What if this plan doesn't work out? What if they demand this in return? What are we going to do, but a loss of panel data, he does not have any fear of the consequences? Nothing at all. Nothing at all. Because nobody can come and claim their rights from him. Nobody can come and take revenge from him. Who are you in front of a loss penalty? Nothing at all. So what does it show to us? The fact that we are so small, we're so insignificant before.
And success lies in submitting to him not turning away from him.
Exactly. She was mentioned about how when she was traveling, and there was an international flight, and the winds were really strong, and the plane started moving. And there was a lot of turbulence and people they were watching whatever their people are typically watching on the plane, whatever they're typically doing. And all of a sudden, when they realized that this is getting really bad, the entire scene changed, people took out the Quran, and they started reading. And as soon as the turbulence was over, everything went back to normal. And then again, when the plane was about to land, the same thing happened.
We don't take a lesson. And we think that, you know, if we are in a place where there's no turbulence where there is no chances of any danger, then go do whatever you want to. But the true believer is the one who remembers a lot at all times, who is fearful of Allah at all times in difficulty, and also in ease, while he is on land. And also when he is traveling, whether by sea or by air, no matter where he is.
And a true believer is the one who learns from his mistakes, that if he has been put to a difficulty once he will learn from it, what is almost penalty trying to teach me over here. And he takes a warning.
But those people who have sealed their eyes and their hearts, they don't take a warning from anything that happens to them.
Somebody just sent me an email. I just like to share this with you.
She just struggled. And she said that dear says to me, I hope you're doing well. And Charlotte is letting you know that I reached home safely Alhamdulillah the flight was surprisingly short and productive. And the error was he was traveling with has added this new feature or maybe I just never discovered it before where you can listen to Quran recitation. So panela so if I wasn't sleeping, then I was reviewing my work tour. Instead of wasting my time watching movies, I was able to use it effectively even up in the year.
It is so true where there's a will, there is a way I was just reflecting on how in a year so many things have changed in my life. And overall, my whole perspective has transformed due to the Quran.
So this is what happens when a person he gains the modifier velocity triangles are the recognition of a loss of final data that he remembers or loved matter where he is that every moment of his he is using to do something productive.
He is using it to gain more has an app that will benefit him. In the
end when a person is like this. The no matter what happens is content.
If some tragedy does happen, he is content. He's satisfied that Alhamdulillah I was doing what was right. He doesn't have regrets.
When there's a difficulty, we tend to blame that, you know, there's something wrong with the car, or you know, it was a very bad storm, or the captain didn't do what he was supposed to do. They didn't expect that this could happen. So this is why they weren't fully prepared. And we have many excuses. There was a delay because of this person because of that person. Because of the weather. We have many excuses many people to blame many things to blame. And the only one who we forget to blame is ourselves.
And if we really took account of ourselves at that time, that means we're taking a lesson that means that we will change after that
