Al-Kahf 27-44 Word Analysis and Tafsir 27-28
I was a bit lame in a ship on your agenda smilla rahmanir rahim
lesson number 152. So to have it number 27 to 44
what numero uno de la come in keytab your Bic, and recite or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what has been revealed to you of the book of your Lord? lamb Oba dearly Kalamata he, there is no one who can change his words. While an Vegeta mean dooney he moved ahead, and never will you find in other than him a refuge. The only refuge that you can find the zoo almost depends on
what to do and recite
is from the roof letters. The Lamb Well, from the word to our antelope is recitation.
But remember that recitation is of two types. First of all, the lower left Leah,
which is the recitation, the reading of the religious scripture, because remember the word Tila is only used for the recitation of revealed scripture, not anything else.
And the second type of dilemma is dilemma, Amalia, or dilemma hook Mija. What does it mean by that? Are Malaya
to do Rama to act according to what a person recites to follow the hook that has been given in it?
And remember that the word devour literally means two things what want to read and secondly do follow.
So the dilemma of the Quran includes reciting the words and it also includes following what a person is reading in action, acting upon what a person is learning
into the falsehood and number 29. Allah Subhana Allah says, In the levina yet Luna keytab en la E. Commerce anata wa unfuckable Mima Rosa now whom Sylvan while Ania, then unity Jonathan lamentable
in the those people who recite who follow the book of Allah and they establish the salah and the spend out of what We have given them openly and secretly, they hope for trade for which there is no decline for which there is no suffering no loss, nothing at all. So over there also inilah Dena yet Lu Nikita Bala, what does it mean by that, they recite and they also follow.
So otaku, read, recite, and also follow, observe, act according to it live by it.
If you notice, otaku is a fairly, a command is being given. And the command is being given to who to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and not just him but also to his alma.
Remember that every time that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is addressed in the Quran, where he is addressed, where singular you is used, then the hip hop is a three times meaning the top to the profits are allowed to them the address to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the Quran is a three types.
First of all, it could be hos meaning it is exclusively for him. That command is exclusively for him, or the address is exclusively for him, not for anyone else. Others can take a lesson from it, they can take inspiration from it, but only the profits or a lot of them is being addressed over there. For instance, think about some IRA.
We learned earlier I said a year Bertha gala buka mahkamah mahamudra that perhaps your Lord will raise you to mahkamah Muhammad. Now it doesn't mean that if a person begins to pray that God will think that Okay, I will also be raised over there No, you is exclusively addressed to who the prophets are a lot of them only, it's only for him not for others.
Similarly, we learn lm naturalia halakhah solok This is also for who the Prophet sallallahu wasallam malwa Darko buka woolmark Allah alemi ajuda tieman for our doesn't mean every person who recites the Quran was listening. He was a theme and Allah given refuge No, it's only for the prophets on
the second type of report to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his arm. What does it mean by that? It's general meaning he is being addressed. However, the address is directed to who to his oma.
Like for example, we learn here are you going to be you either for Lakota Missa Soto Tanaka number one, that oh prophet when you all divorce women, either
Aqua dome dome is what
plural. So, at the beginning who is being addressed the prophets are allowed, but in reality the commands for who
and thirdly, the third type of command is that it is both meaning it could be taken as hostile and it can also be taken as
it can be exclusively for the profits or a lot of sudden it is for him and it is also for his oma such as this command
to recite, so this command is to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it is also for his oma
that recite and follow the Quran and recite it yourself, follow it yourself and also recite it to who
to others. Because when a person is reciting, either he is reciting it for himself, like for example, in Salah
or he's just reflecting on the ayat or he is reciting, so that other people can listen, other people can learn, other people can reflect. So when the command is being given over here, it gives both the meanings that recited yourself, follow it yourself, and also recite to others so they can live by it. Even they can learn what Allah subhanaw taala is saying.
And remember that the way of recitation has also been informed to us. Over here we are being told to recite the Koran, but how should a person recite that way has also been taught to us in total Muzammil number four, Allah soprano daughter says, What do you call Ana de la and recite the Quran with measured recitation
don't do delta and delta is that a person stops a person pauses at appropriate places, he keeps the meaning in mind and he reads according to that,
this is how a person should recite the Quran.
And as you know that the louer does not just include reading, but it also includes reading with understanding. Therefore, a person must recite how, with understanding whether he is reciting to himself or he is reciting before other people.
Because the Quran has not just been revealed that we adorn our voices with it, know it so then we adorn our lives with it. We understand what the message is, and we implement it
into upside I number 29. Allah subhanaw taala says keytab an answer now in aka mobile.
This is a book a blessed book, which We have revealed to you Leah de baru at so that they can reflect upon its verses.
In other words, the reason behind the revelation of the Quran is what so that the people can reflect on the verses Leah de baru it when he uttered Echo, and bad, and that those people who have understanding, they can take a lesson they can be reminded.
So, so far, what have you learned, the recitation should be
with the team, it should be with understanding. And it should be followed by action as well.
And a person should not just recite to himself for himself, but you should also recite to others. Because if you're reading your understanding, it's your obligation that you must also share this knowledge with other people.
It's a command.
Now we have to see how did the Sahaba How do they implement this?
We learned that or want to learn who he would say to Abu Salah actually have the lower do that. Yeah. By Musa, the kidnapper robina. Obama Musa, remind us of our Lord,
remind us of our Lord, for the Apollo. So then he would recite the Quran,
well, whom he is meruna. And they meaning the companions, they would listen to this recitation where bokun and they would weep.
It is said that of Musashi, his recitation was beautiful.
he recited beautifully in a very effective way. And whenever he would read, people will be moved by his recitation.
So this shows to us that a person who is able to read well, he should not just benefit himself by his reading, but you should also benefit others. He should also read to others
because there is a very good impact when a person listens to a beautiful recitation.
And we should also develop a habit of listening to the Quran regularly. Because recently we learned about the Satoshi plan
and I'm sure that we're trying our best not to listen to any
Anything at all that has any of the voice of shaitaan in it, but you have to replace it with something better.
If you don't, then that void will be filled up with what? With something else. And Chetan comes where, where there's emptiness, where a person has not filled up that aspect of his life with something good. So therefore replace it with the recitation of the Quran with listening to the Quran regularly.
And to what extent should a person recite to hold on? To what extent should a person read the Quran try to understand its meanings, because Otto is not just reading, but also understanding right?
So to what extent should a person apply this?
Even misurata learn who he said, Mammon I think
there is no I, in the book of Allah. No verse, not a single verse in the book of Allah, in what an LLM, except that I know a nun as in it, where it was revealed every ayat of the Quran, I know exactly which place it was revealed at
Wolfie manna zealot and concerning who it was revealed, in what context was it revealed what Martin has, and what time it was revealed. I know the place and the person and the time
will have Hello, let's be Leyland, owner herring. And whether it was revealed during the night, or during the day, I was suffering O'Halloran or whether it was revealed while the Prophet said a lot of sun was traveling. Or it was revealed while he was still at home. When we come to our level, I had an airline woman named Vicki tabula he. And if I knew any person knows more about the book of Allah than me, the de la acabado eberly, little hill to LA, even if I had to tear apart the livers of the camels, meaning that they would have to constantly travel, I would do so I would make my camels goal I would make my camels continue to journey until I would reach that person in order to
learn more about the book of Allah.
This is a kind of knowledge that the Sahaba had.
This is how much they did the tiller one of the
and look at their greed for knowledge that if I knew anyone who knows more than me, I would journey I would travel to him. Even if that meant causing one candle to expire after the other exhausting all of my wealth, I would do so. Because Allah subhanaw taala has said Ulu recite, read, and the same command is for us. So we need to ask ourselves as well, that how much effort are we sincerely putting in to read the Quran, to understand the Quran, to know its meanings, to understand the context to apply to our daily lives, and to pass it on to other people. Because it's the command of Allah otaku.
And when a person reads when a person understands when he acts upon the Quran, only then he can gain benefit. otaku recite, Maria, la Carmen Kitab, Arabic, whatever has been revealed to you from the book of your Lord. Meaning in its entirety. Read the book, follow the book, understand the book in its entirety. Because notice the word mat mat gives the meaning of all that is.
Don't just focus on selected portions, selected chapters, but your focus should be the entire plan.
If I know one tour really well, I know one lesson really well. That's not all.
I have to know the entire course on every word every I every sort of otaku, Maria alayka all that has been revealed. Don't leave any part out main keytab Arabic from the book of your Lord.
And remember that when the prophet SAW the listener was commanded to recite the Quran, he was commanded to recite the Quran in front of in front of the other people in order to teach them about what Allah had revealed.
Now, this may be very easy for us to do today. In fact, other people are begging us please read please recite, please share. But we become stingy we become shy. So it is very easy for us to do this today. But for the prophets that allowed them to read Quran before people who are hostile to read called on before people who would oppose him who would ridicule him who would verbally and physically abused him. This was not something easy. It was
otaku, Mel here in a community developing that whether someone likes it or not, whether it is according to someone's desires or not, whether they want to hear it or not still you have to tell them you have to convey
and know that Land Rover dealer, there is no one who can change me but there is one who does 30 from the roof efforts back then.
No one can alter no one can change legally matiee the words of almost
no one can change the Kalamata of Allah, whether there are konietzko element or they are shudder you can imagine.
So this shows to us that the curry matter of Allah, the words of Allah, the statements of Allah are of two types. First of all Kony, like, for example, when Allah subhanaw taala says could do something, and it becomes, can anyone alter that command? Allah says, gone and someone goes and stops that process. Can anyone do that? No, no one can do that.
So many times it happens that Allah subhanaw taala causes a child to be created in the womb of a mother. And perhaps people make many attempts to kill the child, but they're unable to. Why?
Because if Allah has said gone, no one can stop it.
The second type of command of Allah, the Kadima of Allah is shattering the loss of a loss of
Salamabad data. Luckily mighty, no one can alter the words of Allah, the shadowy words such as the Koran, such as the revelation, the scripture that Allah soprano data has sent.
Now over here, Allah says lamb but the reliquary, mighty?
But isn't it so that the previous people change the scriptures that Allah revealed?
but Allah says no one can change.
Similarly, the words of the Quran people try to alter their meaning people try to misinterpret them, people try to put them out of context. Now isn't that changing the word of Allah, it is trying to change the words of Allah. So when Allah says Lamb of bettinelli Cali Mati it means no one is allowed.
No one is permitted to
people may do so. They may attempt to, but they're not allowed to do that.
And even if they try to do that, they will not be successful. Especially when it comes to the Quran. People can try to misinterpret the Quran, they can try to alter it, but they will be unsuccessful in doing so.
Like for example, in recent years, there have been so many attempts to change some of the very clear commands or loss of penalty has given us many attempts to alter the many attempts to interpret them differently. However, the original interpretation, can anyone remove the words of a login anyone change them? No one can do that.
They may try to but they can never be successful in total and around 115 Allah subhanaw taala says what am Matt Kelly metalock? Because cinecon what are the lamb mubadala calamata he was suddenly early and the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and injustice, none can alter his words and he is the hearing the knowing
well and the Gita and you will never find mainone besides meaning besides Allah multa had any place or person to take refuge in delene on
Motorhead is from the reflectors, lamb hadn't
what is the law had
a grave, but what kind of a grave is it that has been dug sideways,
that you dig downwards, and then you make a niche onto the side where the dead person is laid, so that the mud is not directly thrown on top of him. And this is the kind of grave that is preferred in our religion, this is a final grade that is preferred, the other is also permissible However, this one is preferred.
And this is why the word ill had is to deviate, to turn aside, to lean on to something to lean onto something.
So multihead is my rune or it is love.
So any person or any place to hide in, to rely upon, to turn to, to take refuge with if you turn away from Allah. If you abandon the words of Allah, if you dare to alter them, then you will not find besides a lot, any with any place that you can go and hide.
And we can also understand this in another way. That if anyone intends evil
With you, then you will not find any refuge except to Allah so,
no one can protect you except to Allah.
And this is also a warning, because a command is being given a clue. If a person does not read, if a person abandons the book of Allah, man, if a person leaves out parts of it, if a person does not give the higher quality lower, if a person tries to alter the words of Allah, then he cannot find any refuge any escape. Therefore, never even dare to change the Quran. never dare to alter its meanings.
into little gin I number 22 we learn in the lane you deal on him in a lie ahead on while an edgy Domine dooney will
say indeed, they will never protect me from Allah, anyone if I should disobey, nor will I find other than him a refuge. If a person disobeys Allah, then who can protect him, no one can protect him,
was bitten of soccer, and keep yourself patient
with who morality is levena with those people who you're the owner of Bahama, who remember their Lord who call upon their Lord, below that he will or she, in the morning, and also in the evening. Keep yourself in the company of those people who pray to their Lord in the morning. And also in the evening. If you notice the word is with his spirit from the veterans side. And what a suburban hubsan loves to control oneself, to bind one soul, to tie it, to not let it go. to suppress it,
to make it persevere on something.
And when the word sobre is followed by Ma, it means to keep by something, to restrain with something to keep with something to not leave it.
So is bit Neff soccer. Hold yourself, keep yourself, restrain yourself with who, with who.
And Lavina you're the owner of bombilla Dotty with those people who pray to their Lord in the morning and in the evening.
In other words, bind yourself. Hold yourself in the company of such people.
Don't let yourself ever leave the company of such people.
Stay with them stay in their company.
And why is this that is when of soccer that you have to hold yourself with them. Die yourself with them, bind yourself to them. Why has this word been used?
Because if you look at it the knifes the soul of a person, it naturally inclined to want
evil. We learned earlier in the nafsa the amount of
the knifes it order is evil. You don't have to convince yourself to go to a party, for example. But you have to convince yourself to sit in the classroom.
Simple. So many times that happens. You never have to convince yourself to sit down and eat. But you have to convince yourself to open the Quran and read it. To stand in prayer. Right? You have to struggle you have to put in effort because enough's, naturally inclined to want to evil to leisure to play to amusement to fun.
And at the same time, then that's also naturally inclined to Zenith or hypotonia the adornment of this worldly life.
So doesn't mean that just because we desire we should let it go, we should let it do whatever it wishes. No, you have to hold yourself.
You have to keep yourself you have to bind yourself, restrict yourself in the company of such people.
And also is what NASA has been set. Because it's quite possible that some things may annoy you about such people.
Those people who worship online in the morning in the evening. It's quite possible that something annoy you about the
many times people say that, you know my non religious friends, I have more fun with them and my religious friends. I just can't get along with them which there's these little things that really annoy me. We're not at the same level. It's possible. This is why Allah is saying is when you hold yourself with them. You have to force yourself to stay in their company, sustain their company, even if you don't like to, even if some things may be very difficult for you, but still stay with them. Why should you stay with them? Why should you be in their company? Why do you
So, because a person is influenced by his friends,
if they are worshipping their Lord in the morning in the evening, if you are in their company automatically, what will you do? worship Allah in the morning and in the evening as well.
And if you're with some other people who are doing other things in the morning, in the evening, then what are you going to do? Exactly what they're doing. So your company, it affects you, whatever your friends do, that is what you end up doing as well.
And also stay with them. Because a person will be resurrected with who, with those who he loves, with those whom he is with in this dunya.
And also, when a person is in the company of such people, then what happens? He gets encouragement and moral support from them,
isn't it? Like, for example, if you're falling back, if you're falling behind, your friend will push you isn't it? If you're not doing your work, if you're not doing what you're supposed to, then they will encourage you, they will motivate you. And it's possible that if you're with other kinds of friends, they will not even care if you haven't gotten up to praise Allah.
Therefore, stay in the company of such people for your good. Now this is a very important lesson that we learned from the story of who
the US harmonica,
that what is it that led them to their success. It was their righteous company.
They the like minded ones, they got together. They shared their beliefs with one another, they reassured one another that yes, what we're believing is right. And they made a plan together, that this is where we're going to go this is what we're going to do. So when a person has good company, that is what helps him pass the test of the Remember, a person is made to go through several tests in his life. One thing through which he is tested is his religion. When there's opposition, when a person is not allowed to act upon his religion, then what is it that will help him? What is it that will motivate him? It's the righteous company. It's the company of good people, they will hold you
if you're falling back, if you begin to have doubts, they will correct your thinking. If you begin to question they will answer they will guide you, they will keep you straight, therefore was big enough. Second, Martin Lavina, you're the owner of Bahama belladati when Archie
and if you look at it, who is this command being given to first of all, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So, if this is important for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not more important for us, of course, it is because people they get affected by one another, your company affects you.
So, stay morality with such people sit with them, be in their company, strengthen yourself and also strengthen them
because when friends stay together then what happens their means of strengthening one another.
So help yourself and also help them
And who are these people alladhina their own album yeah the owner from the Andhra is to call upon and remember the law is of two types. First of all, there is of masala asking, praying for something.
And secondly, there is also of Riba worshipping.
So those who call upon their Lord at what times beloved it in the morning, and for that is a willow now, the first part of the day, it is said that it is the time between budget and sunrise
and ally, she is the evening the end of the day, the time between Russell and
so that is between fudger and sunrise, and she is between arsal and Mohammed. So those people who worship their Lord, at these times, stay with them.
Now the question is how do they call upon their Lord at these times? If you look at a draw, first of all, as I mentioned use of massala. So for example, who say the morning and evening a girl who made there are two o'clock in the morning, and also in the evening.
And if you say there is a verb other, meaning they do, either they worship Allah in the morning and also in the evening.
Now these two times are mentioned specifically Why?
Because of a person worships Allah at these two times and he will definitely worship Allah. When
all the time because these two times are the most busy times of the whole 24 hours. If you think of it, rush hour time
When, early morning and evening, isn't it, sometimes six o'clock in the morning, seven o'clock in the morning, you see, the highways are full, the streets are full. And in the evening at the time of us have up until negative, again the roads are full, the highways are full. So it's rush hour time.
So if you stay with such people at these times, only then you will be able to remember Allah, only then you will be able to call upon Allah as well.
And if you're with some other people, then whatever they're going to be doing that is what you will be doing.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that I sit with people remembering a lot from the morning prayer until sunrise is more beloved to me than freeing for slaves from among the children of Israel.
That I sit with people remembering a lot from the afternoon prayer meeting us up until the sunsets is more beloved to me than freeing for slaves from among the children of Israel.
So just imagine the profits of a lot of them love the company of such people.
Because your company definitely affects you.
So choose them, stay with them, as these two times. Think about it. In the morning, typically, what do people do,
they will turn the TV on to watch the weather or the urgent news or something, when they will sit in the car, they will turn the radio on to get the traffic. But if you're sitting with someone who prays to Allah, Who remembers a lot, what are they going to do? Yes, they will check the weather, but then they will recite the Quran or they will begin to say their morning cup.
Similarly, they will sit in the car, they will check the traffic. But then after that, they will listen to something that is much better. But if you're sitting with somebody who does not worship Allah, Who does not remember a lot these two times and what's going to happen,
they're going to listen to something that you're not going to like that is not appropriate, they'll perhaps watch something, they'll perhaps say something that is not appropriate, or perhaps they will do something that is a total waste of time. So choose your company wisely.
You see there are two ways. One is that you are strong yourself and your means of influencing other people.
So for example, in the morning, you are the one who is reciting the Quran, you are the one who is saying the earth God or you're listening to the car, and because of you, other people are altering the same thing.
But if you feel that you're weak, then what should you do? Stay in the company of those people who will take the initiative to do this.
Because if you don't stay with such people, then you're going to fall behind, you're going to end up doing things that are incorrect. So choose your company wisely carefully. What is much better is that a person is influencing other people. But if a person is not at that level, then at least you should choose to be with those people who are going to influence him in a good way. So choose such people for your company.
You really do know what you are who they wish they want. They desire his face.
Meaning when they worship Allah when they call upon Allah at these times, what is their ultimate desire? What is the reason behind their Ubud?
They want the festival, meaning they want to see Allah, they want the pleasure of Allah. This is the only reason. So what does it indicate that they have Islam? They have sincerity. So keep yourself in the company of such people.
While others do it knock on home, and let not your eyes avert from them. That will do from the roof letters, I ended well, or the wood
and are the ones one is to cross the limits. So let's do it should not avert it should not overlook it NACA your two eyes, on home from them from who from such people who call upon Allah in the morning and in the evening. Your eyes should not avert from them, looking at others.
Rather, keep your eyes fixed on such people.
And keep yourself in the company of such people. Stay with them. Look at them only look forward to their company. be impressed by them. Because when does a person look at someone when? When he's impressed by when he admires him?
So with your eyes who should you be admiring? Those people who remember a lie in the morning in the evening? Not other than them. to redo you would wish zenithal hayati dunia the adornment of
The life of this world,
meaning by turning away from such people, what would you be desiring the adornment of this worldly life, meaning the company of those people who are well off perhaps, who are very rich, who are very influential, who have leadership who have plentitude. So one is that a person stays with those who are worthy, who are honorable in the sight of Allah.
And the other is that a person looks forward to the company of those people who have a lot of this dunya
Xena to hire to dunia. They have a lot of Xena, of this worldly life. They have well they have leadership, they have power, they have authority, they have beauty. Two types of people are mentioned over here. What does Allah say? Who should you look forward to?
Those who are more worthy in the sight of Allah?
What does it show to us? Who is truly honorable in the sight of Allah? who is who is truly honorable in the sight of Allah.
Those who remember Allah, those who worship Allah, those who have a floss, those who have a strong connection with Allah, friendship with Allah,
not those who have a lot of worldly glamour, a lot of prestige, a lot of power and authority and influence know a person's worth is determined by his Eman, not his wealth.
One out there and do not obey a prophet sallallahu sallam, and after him all of us are addressed, that do not obey and to third from utara. To obey, to comply with to follow someone do not obey the one who meant Felner The one whom we have made hitless, we have made neglectful What have we made neglectful Calva who has heart so his heart is completely heedless of what are in the cleaner of our, of our remembrance.
So such a person whose heart is completely heedless of the decor of Allah, don't follow such a person. don't obey such a person. So in other words, leave the bad company. Leave the company of those people who are distracted by dystonia
leave the company of those people who do not remember a lot.
And notice over here, MN o funda. Allah has made their heart heedless. Why is alemi their heart seedless? Because they themselves are not interested.
Their hearts are occupied with other things. Their hearts are immersed in the love of this world. Therefore, Allah has also deprived them of his remembrance on Zykina.
And what is the dhikr of Allah refer to do things, remembering Allah and also the Quran?
So the heart of this person is completely heedless of the drama.
So he does not remember a line in his heart. He is not interested in the Quran at all. He does not have any Quran in his heart at all. He does not know the Quran he does not understand the Quran. He does not care about the Quran. He does not remember Allah at all, leave the company of such people do not obey them. Because if you obey them, what are they going to lead you to? Who are they going to lead you to closer to a lot closer to this dunya closer to this dunya. So don't follow such people.
Instead of the najem ayah number 29 and 30. Allah subhanaw taala says, For our mentor when they're on the cleaner, so turn away from whoever turns his back on our message, the one who leaves the Quran, you must leave him
Well, I'm usually the inland hayata dounia and who desire is not except the worldly life, his only goal is what this dunya nothing of the deen nothing of the offer.
So leave the company of such people. Because if you stay with them, they're going to influence you.
And notice that has been said that the heart has been made often of the day carambola so it's possible that this person does remember Allah at the dunk. But the vicar is not in his heart. He may be reciting the Quran, he may be performing the Salah. But the vicar is not in his heart. The heart and the tongue are not in sync. When he's doing the dhikr of Allah.
such a person don't obey Him.
Because whatever is in the heart, what happens? It comes out
onto the tongue.
And if a person does not remember a lot in the heart, then if on the apparent even if he's mentioning a lot, even if he's mentioning the Quran, it will not be beneficial for you, it will not be something that is going to bring goodness to you. Rather, it is only going to make you more heedless, more hard hearted. So leave the company of such people,
whatever, however, and he follows his desire, meaning everything that he wishes, whatever his knifes desires, he follows that, because he doesn't follow the day. What does he follow his desires?
What kind of unblu and his affair is furuta in neglect, as a result of his heart being heedless of the vicar of Allah, as a result of his following desires, his affair is in neglect, meaning his entire life is in neglect.
What does this word mean for this from the roof at risk alpha, we have done the words a fraud interference before, which means to overdo something, to do something excessively beyond the limit, and also to under do something to neglect something
so forth is to exceed limits in a fraud and definitely,
to do something beyond limit to excessively indulge in something.
Or, secondly, to completely neglect something.
So his affair, meaning his entire life is full of what does it mean by this?
That every action that he does, is often extreme. He's very excessive. So there is no balance. There is no schedule. He doesn't have any principles. He's just a slave to his desires. Whatever he wishes he does. If he sleeps, he sleeps excessively. If he shops, he shops excessively. If he talks, he talks excessively, if he laughs, he laughs excessively. If he watches something, he will continue to watch it for several hours. If he's sitting on the computer, he will continue to sit for several hours. If he wants to have fun, he will have fun for many, many hours. This is what excessiveness who is a person who ends up in this situation.
A person who does not remember Allah, because think about it. If a person is sleeping, if he remembers, hello, what is he going to do?
He's going to get up and pretty solid.
But if he does not remember Allah, his affair is going to become excessive. So he's going to continue to sleep, if he's watching TV, and it's time to pray, who is going to continue to watch TV The one who does not remember Allah.
So a person who does not remember Allah, whose heart is heedless of the vicar of Allah, his life becomes a total mess,
because he does not have any principles. He does not have any schedule, he does not have any rules, what does he follow? Just his desires.
And we can also understand photos as neglect,
that his life is full of neglect. What does it mean? That he lives through one day and one night, one after the other, but he does not benefit from those days and nights.
One day goes, another day goes one week versus another week passes, but he is so neglectful, he is so negligent, that he does not benefit at all, from the time that he has, what can
Why is it like that? Because he does not remember. And because of that there is absolutely no Baraka in his life, in any work that he does.
So in this is a warning that a person must remember a lot how in his heart, not just at his dunk.
Because if a person only remembers Allah at the tongue and not his heart, then what will happen? The blessing from his actions, and from his time is going to be taken away. He will spend hours trying to do something, but he will not be able to accomplish a thing.
He will spend days trying to do something, but he will not be successful. He will spend a lot of time he will do many things. But at the end he will have nothing. What's the reason behind that? What's the reason behind that? The heart is negligent of the law.
Now here we need to reflect on our lives. Many times it happens that we're trying to do something. We spend hours and hours but there's no bottle
We're trying to do it again and again, but we're unable to do it, why we should reflect on our record, we should reflect on our Salah that when I'm saying something is my heart involved, is my heart involved?
Because think about it, if a person is just saying words, and he doesn't mean them, His heart is not involved, then this is like, you know, making a fool of someone or this is like mocking at the one whom you're praising? Isn't it? It's mocking at the person at the being whom you're glorifying, whom you're asking for help from?
Because you're just saying things, but you don't mean them. So how do you expect the help of Allah? How do you expect the blessing to be there, it's not going to be there. So leave the company of such people, and change yourself as well. A person who does not remember Allah, a person who follows his desire, his life becomes a mess, it's ever in neglect, he does not achieve anything.
And at the same time, if he does anything, he's extremely excessive.
So there are two types of people who are being shown to us in this.
One group is those who remember Allah, who worship Allah, day, and night, morning and evening. Those who in their action is Baraka, because they worship Allah, they remember Allah, they seek help from Allah.
And on the other hand, is a group of those who are completely heedless, who only follow their desires, who waste their lives. Now choose your company carefully.
And if you look at it, to stay with people who are doing productive things, who are doing useful things, who are remembering Allah who are worshiping Allah who are doing something related to their religion, then you need to have supper. Because many times this work, it brings a lot of challenges, a lot of difficulties. So you need to have supper. And if you do suffer, then you will be able to accomplish something. If you don't do something, you will never be able to accomplish anything at all.
You see many times people who are very successful in their dunya, they seem to be very attractive, because they're having fun, they're going to the wall, they're talking about things that they have done, places they have visited. And naturally, we are inclined to them, and we want to stay in their company. But think about it, no matter how much time you spend with them. What are you gonna get? What are you gonna get
material values, or perhaps you will feel as though your soul pour in for you, you wish you could have that it'll just make you unhappy. It'll make you miserable. It'll make you unsatisfied with what you have.
If you talk to someone whose concern is just adonia. Even if you have a lot, even if you have more than them, they're going to make you feel you don't have enough. You know why? You will get a new phone? And they will say, Did you see the newest model?
you know about that? And this phone that you have? You're so unhappy with it, isn't it? So
you get a really nice pair of clothes, you're wearing it? And they will say, did you see that one? Did you see that one? Did you see what this store has brought? Have you seen this model? Have you seen this model? Have you seen that? which will make you unhappy with what you have?
And on the other hand, if you're in the company of those people whose focus is the author whose focus is the dean, then what's going to happen?
Yes, you're going to enjoy the things you have. But you can have a higher goal. You can have a higher purpose. Because of which you'll be able to do something productive. Your conversation will not just revolve around phones and you know, makeup and jewelry and clothes and shoes and bags, but it will revolve around things that are more important. When you will leave from there. You'll be happy. You'll be motivated. You won't be discouraged. You won't be like oh, I have to go next sale and I have to save this much money and I have to do this and after that no, you'll be contented with
Similarly, if a new phone comes out, people will stand for hours in line. If a new iPad comes up, people will stand for hours in a long line that will go around the whole mall. But they will stand there. And within a few days it becomes old. Within a few months, it will become old. So if you're in a company of such people, are you ever going to be satisfied? Are you ever going to be content, you will never be content that cannot bring you happiness. But if you're in the company of those whose focus is our fellow who are worshipping, align the morning in the evening, who are focused on the deen, then you'll have a better purpose and life and you need righteous company.
Similarly, if you look at in the previous ayah, we're told to do thilawa. And for that you need to read, you need to understand and you also need to act upon what you are reading, these three things are necessary. But you can only improve in these three aspects. If you have good company. If you are with friends who recite the Quran, then you are also going to want to recite
if you're with those people who reflect on the Quran, then you're also going to do that, if you were those people who act upon the Quran, you're also going to do that.
But if you're in the company of those people who never mentioned the Quran, who stay away from the Quran, who are completely horrified of the Kabbalah who don't have any idea what Allah subhanaw taala has said, then you're not going to be able to do any of that you're not going to be able to do that our Lost Planet Allah has commanded us to do.
Now somebody has asked a question, and one of the online students that what if you're married to someone who wastes his time? Then how can you leave that company of this person? Or what if you're living with a person, your siblings, or perhaps your parents, or your relatives, people who are very close to you who are related to you, but they are not involved in doing the vicar of Allah in worshipping almost.
Remember, I mentioned there are two ways. One is that you become the influence. And the other is that you take the influence.
If you are weak, then what do you need to do? strengthen yourself.
If you are in such a family, in such a household, where people are like this, then you must spend some of your time with those people who remember almost a predator.
Which is why you must enroll yourself in a course in which you're studying the Quran, in which you are with people who remember Allah so that you can get stronger. And when you go back, then you can influence now don't say to your husband or to your sister to your friend or to your mother, because you don't remember a lot in the morning in the evening. Too bad. I can't sit with you right now. No, you have to be the influence.
Honestly, if you display the car in the morning, if you open the Quran, you recite the Quran, they won't stop you, they're not going to stop you, you'll be the influence and other people. Somebody else.
She's mentioning how that in the car when the radio is on, before anybody would turn the radio on, she would turn that allowed on on her iPod, then people would respect that hour and they would not turn the radio.
So if you have that ability, if you could look for ways in which you can influence other people and take your strength. Take your fuel from people who are strong in their religion. Keep yourself connected with such people as well.
See, if you look at it as parents, we can do a lot to influence our children. As a mother, even if your child is very small, even if he or she is still nursing. If you recite the Quran, if you're reciting your morning, call your evening of God, your child will begin to listen to it from the very beginning and you will continue to do this for the rest of his life as well. inshallah, but you have to do it. You can't wait for other people to do it. Unfortunately, we depend too much on other people for our other. If they read, then we will read. If they pray, then we will pray. take the initiative because you're responsible for yourself and when you will do it that other people will
follow. Why should you be the
