Let's continue our lesson.
One either total or lay him a tuna and when our Verses are recited to them, which verses by unity, that are clear,
when our Verses are recited upon them as clear evidences
that clarify the truth. Allah Medina cafaro. Those people who are disbelieved they say, to lilla Dena Amano to those people who have believed, they say to them, after listening to the ayah, the only thing that they have to say is, I yield for your company. Which of the two groups two groups meeting us or you? Which of us? Is it us? Or is it you who are higher on mahkamah, better in position
mcommerce, from the roof address of well, meme and macom is the place of standing.
And it's used in both tangible as well as intangible ways. tangible life, for example, the house of a person, where a person lives, that is his mom.
That is where he resides. And secondly, intangible, the position, the rank, the status of a person,
the situation that he is in the position that he has in the society. So which of us which of the two groups is better in position? Whose house is better? Ours or yours? Whose position is better in the society? Ours or yours? Whose situation is better today? Ours are yours? What are soluna? d? Yeah, and who is more beautiful in assembly. Nadie is from the root letters known Dahlia.
And the D is a place where people sit and talk, they have discussions, they chat. So basically, it's a meeting place, a place of socialization, a place of entertainment, where people get together, they talk, and they also entertain themselves.
That will network
from the same route. Why? Because it was a house of discussion Council. The leaders of the coalition would gather together over there to discuss important matters. So who is a Santa Ana de who is more beautiful, in association in majlis, whose gatherings are better?
Ours are yours? Whose gatherings have more people, hours are yours. More attendance, hours are yours? Who has better Association? Meaning we are it's not you. It's we are, you claim to be believers, if you were really believers, then your position in this dunya would have been better.
If you are supposed to be believers, if you're supposed to be on the truth, then your gatherings should have been better. What do we see in this ayah?
That the most genomica after listening to the Quran, after getting to know about the clear evidences, they're defeated.
they're unable to produce anything like the Quran. they're unable to bring anything to refute what Allah soprano data has said. So what are they left with? They say, they begin to boast about their homes, they begin to boast about their wealth, they begin to boast about their social status, their social position, and this is a sign of their superficial knowledge. This is a sign of their being extremely materialistic.
That what is being spoken about?
what is being spoken about a man and here comes a person boasting about his house? Is my house better your house? What a cheap thing to do? That What are you talking about? Your house is not relevant over here. Your status in the society is not relevant over here. We're talking about faith we're talking about the year after. But what do they say? That who is better, since we are more wealthy, since we are more successful in worldly terms, therefore we are upon the truth. We don't insult Subbu I number 35. That will call you nano acto Amal and older women are going to be more obese. They say we have more children, we have more wealth, therefore we're never going to be
Similarly in zero to a half or 11, we learn what color Latina gefallen Latina Amano, Logan halen, merci beaucoup de la and those who disbelieved say of those people who believe that if it had truly been good, if the Quran was truly something good, they would not have preceded us to it.
Because we are more wealthy, we are more intelligent. We are more wealthy allies more happy with us. So whatever we do is right.
And if we don't believe in the Quran, it's because the Quran is not right. So we see that dunya was their criteria of success.
If a person has more than you, he is successful. If a person has less than you, he is not successful. And if a person has more dunya, he is definitely right. And if a person has less than you, then what he's doing is wrong. Allah subhanaw taala response will come Alekna and how many we have destroyed meaning many Avila home before them. Main continent of generation, meaning so many generations, so many nations from the people of the past we have destroyed. And those people whom we destroyed before they were home, our son, they were better they were more beautiful,
in what in Athens in possessions with a year and also an outward appearance. affairs, according to some linguists is the plural of the word affairs.
As we have learned earlier, in through the National as well. And 1000 is used for household items, household furniture,
belongings, possessions, like for example, where a person sleeps, what a person wears, what a person sits on utensils.
So, Allah subhanaw taala says that the people whom we destroyed before, they had much better possessions than you have today.
Think about it, the people who lived before and today, the places that they lived in are discovered till today what is discovered the things that they made the things that they used. There were so fine, there were so beautiful in their appearance. So they had much better possessions than you
wouldn't Yeah, and also in outward appearance that were much better than you. The innocent newsletters, all hams idea
is to see and hear his appearance that which is on display.
That which is put on display so that other people can see it.
So the people of the past, they had better designs, they had better displays, they had better art.
They set out things that were much more beautiful than you have set up today.
Sometimes if you look at the pictures, videos of you know different places that are discovered, where people used to live 1000s of years ago, the structures that they built, the art that they had, the drawings that they made, the things that they made, they are so beautiful
in their usefulness, they are so good at that and in their appearance also radiant, they're so beautiful. But what is the last panel dynasty? We destroyed them
and you are nothing compared to what they did. You are nothing compared to what they made what they put on display.
So if Allah can destroy them, you think you cannot destroy you.
If they were punished for their coffee, you will be spared no
old say mankind polarity whoever is an error.
How come people despite their misguidance despite there being wrong, have a lot of denier think about it the mystic enough maka. They were definitely better when it came to their houses when it came to their social status. When it came to their worldly possessions they were much better compared to the believers.
So a person may wonder how is it so that Allah gives so much to those who disbelief?
Allah says all men can have equality whoever is in
full bloom did so let him extend Lahu for him who should extend for him are among the most merciful. For unit lamb over here. This kind of lamb is lamb off under generally. Isn't it? Fun Liam did so he should
correct failure the failure of ba he should fear Allah failure oluwo salaam is a farmer generally. However, over here it gives meaning of a cabal
that Allah subhanaw taala is informing us that whoever is in Allah Allah, what happens Allah extends for him, then in extension,
meaning Allah prolongs his life for him.
He extends his enjoyment for him.
He lets him enjoy, he lets him Have fun. He lets him Have you know a lot of increase in his wealth in his high position in his status. Volume the dilla homearama nomada meaning Allah does not punish that person immediately. Rather you give him time.
had that until either Oh my your aduna until they see what they're promised.
And what are they promised in my either either the punishment Indonesia, what MSR or the hour that if a person is fair from the punishment adonia and he dies, even if he dies a very good debt, eventually what is there for him a PSA, the our meaning punishment in the Hereafter, first Ala Moana then soon they will say, Man Who shall roam McCann, and who is worse for a year on a moon, than soon they will know.
Soon they will know who the machine that man who I shall run mccannon who is evil in place, what other are for jinda and weaker in soldiers in force? June, as you know is used for an army for soldiers.
So then they will know when the punishment comes that who was really worst in position?
Was it those who believed? Or was it those who disbelieved?
What other fortune that and who is weaker in force in helpers in associates? Is it those who believe or those that disbelief?
What can you see in this ayah
that in Estonia, those people who do learn those people who do wrong, those people who were in Valera, Allah does not punish them immediately.
Rather, what does he do?
He gives them respect.
He lets them do whatever they wish to.
And this is a way of seizing the person.
That when he gets completely immersed in his enjoyment, completely lost, completely oblivious to the reality of his deeds to the outcome of his deeds, then what happens, then a person is caught, then that comes to him,
punishment comes to him, loss comes to him decline comes to him, or eventually he will be punished in the hereafter.
So Allah subhanaw taala says, first Ala Moana man who eyeshadow mccannon will other erfolgen that right now, they boast a lot, that they have better houses, they have better positions, they have better friends. But on that day, they will realize who is worse in McGann and who is weaker in June.
A person who only relies upon his wealth and his friends, he becomes very proud of his family and his friends. But on the Day of Judgment, nothing will help him.
His friends will not help him. His wealth will not help him. His family will not help him.
We learned so little cap I have 43 while I'm Nicola houfy, atonium soluna woman de la
casa, the person when he lost his gardens, he didn't have any group of people who could help him. Whereas What did he say? That I have more people than you? Isn't it? So?
That's what he boasted about. I have more people than you. But Allah says what am taco lofi Etonian Suleiman de la, um, I kind of went a little and he was not even able to help himself. So if a person is an error in the dunya, and he has all of the blessings of the dunya it does not mean that Allah is pleased with him.
He has these blessings in this dunya as a test,
because every person is given in this dunya because he's been tested.
And if a person is given more than the test is more
Why is he de la hula? Deena todo Huda. And Allah increases those people who are guided in guidance.
Where did these ideas begin? From? What either to allow him to know when the Ayat of Allah recited? What's the reaction of those people who disbelieve
instead of focusing on what the IRS said, what do they say? Who is better in wealth? Who has more wealth?
This is a reaction of alladhina cafaro.
But those people who have accepted it I have meaning those people who have imagined what happens when they listen to the Quran. Whereas the the Allahu livina thereto houda Allah increases them in guidance. They keep moving forward in their guidance, in their rectitude in their goodness.
You see two types of people. One is a person who is being given a lot in his worldly pleasures in his worldly enjoyment, fun, yum De La Romana muda.
Right. And on the other hand, is a person who is increasing in his hedaya.
Generally, what do people think that if a person is increasing in Estonia is successful, isn't it?
And if a person is increasing in his knowledge of the dean, or if a person is increasing in his dedication to the dean, then people think that he is
suffering from a major loss. Whereas what do we see that who is successful? A person who is increasing in his Hooda?
Was he the law who lived in adulthood A while back to soil health too, and the enduring good deeds, the good deeds that endure,
that remain with a person in the hereafter that don't die when a person dies, that don't stop when a person stops living when a person stops breathing,
that don't finish in this dunya like Milan Vanunu well bathia to Sally had, what about them? Allah says they are higher in Europe because they are better do your Lord for reward.
Allah subhanaw taala likes them more. And He rewards them with higher morale and better for recourse. What does it mean by that? That hieronder in Arabic as a weapon with regards to reward?
Allah subhanaw taala gives preference to Albert he decided
not mal and by noon.
If a person has amassed a lot of wealth, will he got a lot of reward in the hereafter because of gaining a lot of wealth? No. But if a person has amassed a lot of back the other side he had, then is he gonna get a lot of reward? Yes, sir. reward is based on what Becky had to Sally had.
Not what a person is acquired of worldly things.
Well, hieromartyr and better in recourse,
Mara is place of return, time of return. Return itself. So hieromartyr when a person returns in the year after, what is going to benefit him?
is going to be his main balloon? Is it? No, it's going to be his back to soil health.
So we need to ask ourselves over here as well. That what is it that will truly bring benefit to a person? It's his good deeds. It's his deeds. It's not the wealth that he has acquired. It's his deeds that are going to benefit him.
Therefore, we have to see how much of our time goes into acquiring deeds, and how much of our time goes into other things. How much of our time goes in looking after the dunya? And how much of it does it go in performing good deeds?
a lot of pride in their worldly success in their materialistic success.
And the believers what were they going ahead in, in their good deeds?
So comparisons being made over here? Yes, there is a person who is excelling in his dunya but on the other hand, is a person who's excelling in his who the what is going to last? It's the back here to say they had their way going to last. No matter how much dunia a person accumulates, it's not going with him to his grave.
No matter who he is, no matter what status he has, no matter what position he has acquired. Eventually you will be buried in the earth. What is going with him are his actions not his mentioned, not his wealth. Therefore, a person's focus in this life should not be to make a certain amount of money to get a six figure salary
To have such and such belonging strap such and such things in his name. No, that should not be the goal. It should not be the goal. What's the goal? that a person should focus on acquiring more and more solid hat? Because that is what's going to accompany him into here after
fr a eight and Lady, then Have you seen the one who gave her a big Tina who disbelieved in our vs. wirkkala and he said Luton, surely I will definitely be given melon wealth. Well, well, Adam and also children.
Have you seen the person who disbelieves in our ad, and he says, I will definitely be given wealth and children when in the hereafter.
This is a deception that many people have.
That they think that just because they have
worldly success today, in the hereafter also, they will be successful.
That just because they have so much wealth, they have healthy children, everything is fine for them. Therefore, in the Hereafter, they will also be fine.
You understand what the problem is? Because I'm fine right now. I'll be fine later.
And this is why many people neglect their deeds. They neglect the commands of loss panda has given they don't take them seriously. Because I think I am fine today. I will be fine tomorrow.
But if a person is fine today, it does not mean that he will be fine tomorrow as well. It does not mean that he will be given a wealth and children tomorrow as well.
We learned to look for sleep if 50 while in the canal hora Mata Min mimbar de la masetto layer kulana heatherly womma Lm masataka. Emerton and if we let men taste Mercy from Us after an adversity, which has touched Him, He will surely say that this is due to me. And I do not think the hour will occur while illusionary to a lot of be in earlier in the hood and herson and if I should be returned to my north, and indeed I will get her snow. Why? Because I have crisnet today. I have very good things to do tomorrow also I will have a lot.
However, many people forget that whatever they have in this dunya is not reward. But what is it? It's a test. We learned in sort of what we know if 5556 is abona unknown, we don't be mammalian weapon in new Sadie or the whole hierarchy.
But Leia, Sharon,
do they think that what we extend to them of wealth and children is because we hasten for them good things, rather, they do not perceive do the thing that just because they have a lot of wealth and children. We are giving them a lot of good reward. No, they don't realize this is not good reward. This is a test.
And if a person thinks that he has today, he will also have tomorrow therefore he doesn't need to bother about his deeds. Allah subhanaw taala says a foreigner on Labor has looked into the unseen
that he's so confident that if he has been given wealth and children today, he will have it tomorrow as well.
A polar labe.
And what are the two homes over here?
But the second Hamza has been assimilated upon our life.
And if Torah
is to become informed of something,
is to become acquainted of something we learned in terms of cath lab with polariton in him.
So uttara labor, has he looked into the unseen
has he been informed of the unseen of the future, that when he dies in the Hereafter, he will be given Jenna
I made the hada or has he taken in the Romania the with the Most Merciful, a promise a covenant
that has he taken a promise with all know that all regardless of how I am in this dunya you have to give me done.
And this is a promise of that Allah has made with him
just as a Yahood and the Masada what would they think? The agenda is for us?
We will never be admitted into hellfire. And if we are it will only be for a few days.
So Allah subhanaw taala says, a thorough lay. Has he seen the unseen? I mean, they're in Romania or has he taken a promise with Allah.
So if a person claims that he will have wealth and children in the Hereafter, he should be asked a thoroughly Did you read some book and find out about the knowledge of Allah about the destiny of each and every single person? The fact is that even the prophets have a lot of them did not know as to what was going to happen with him.
What do we learn? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Well, Matt did he may use Adobe
When I become, I do not know what's going to happen to me, how I am going to be dealt with, and how you are going to be dealt with. So if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not know, what would happen with him? How can we be so sure, that just because we have said La Ilaha, Illa Allah, just because we, you know, do certain things, just because we have a lot of wealth. Allah is definitely happy with us, and we're definitely going to gentlemen,
you see, when a person thinks like this, that I am definitely getting Jenna in the Hereafter, then what happens? He becomes very slow and negligent in the performance of his good deeds.
Because he thinks reward is guaranteed,
just like a person who is very sure that he will pass the test. He's very short, very confident about it.
And if he's extremely confident, is he going to bother studying? No, sometimes children do that. They say, Oh, it's very simple, I can do it, no big deal. And they don't study and when the test comes right before them, they realize that they're not ready for it.
So when a person thinks like this, I'm guaranteed reward in the Hereafter, then it affects his actions. And this is why we must stay between hope and fear.
Always between hope and fear,
hopeful of reward, hopeful of mercy, hopeful of forgiveness, but at the same time afraid as well.
Because hope and fear both of them, they drive a person.
Both of them, they motivate a person, they keep him straight.
Allah subhanaw taala says color, no way.
Color is helpful other and it's also for Tambi. It's procedural, it's for encounter for the purpose of denial for the purpose of saying No way. Absolutely not. This is not possible.
Color, no way. He says he has seen the unseen. No, he hasn't hesitated and are either with Allah, no way. Seneca, Romania kulu, we shall write what he says. One would do, and we shall extend Lahu for him minute are there be from the punishment, mad the extensively
we will extend the punishment for him. How in time and also in severity.
In time, that the punishment will only increase,
it will only increase it will only continue it will never come to an end.
And secondly, in its intensity as well, the punishment will keep growing it will keep intensifying. Why? Because he did not just commit the crime of gopher, but also of mockery, also of a stigma, therefore the punishment will be increased for him.
Whenever ready to who and we shall inherit him. My akula. In what he says, what does he say? That I have welcome children. And I will definitely have them tomorrow as well. What does Allah say?
We shall inherit from him, meaning all his wealth and children, when he dies, he's not going to have them anymore. Who is going to become their Malik, who is their medic at a loss panel data, where the follow the end, he will come to us alone, he will come to us single with no one accompanying him. Nothing accompanying him, because his wealth and children he left them behind were in the dunya. And now on the Day of Judgment, he will come to us alone and accompanied individually accountable without any money without any children.
What does he say right now? I have Well, I will have it tomorrow.
But the reality is that whatever he has today will be left behind and he will come alone.
If you notice this word font font is used to describe someone who is alone without any special value without any special rank
without carrying anything of material gain, or even any kind of honor.
So it's a person who is alone who has nothing. Nothing. He doesn't have any money. He doesn't have any company. He doesn't have any status, any honor. Any power, any authority, nothing whatsoever.
In this dunya what happens if a person is alone.
If he doesn't have people with him, he has his money.
Right? If he doesn't have money, if he's alone, at least he
As an identity, in the sense that he belongs to a certain country, and if he is treated unjustly, then that government will defend him. Right?
People have some way of getting some help through their honor through the place that they belong to their money, their friends, etc, etc. But on the Day of Judgment, how will a person come?
No wealth, no money, no status, no passport, no citizenship? Nothing? Nothing at all.
We learned inserted an arm I 94 Well, according to Muna for the camera, holla kanakam.
It will be sad, and you have certainly come to us alone. Just as we created you the first time
for either, just as we created you the first time you went alone in dunya. You have come alone today. What are octo malha? Well, nakoula hoody calm and you have left whatever We bestowed upon you behind you. Everything you were given in the dunya where is it today?
You've left it? Why am I not American shoe farrakhan and Latinas are unknown unknown FICO Shaka, and we do not see with you your intercessors, which you claim that they were among you associate of a law, that they will help you lock a Tata avena, calm, while Milan coma content has removed, it has all been severed between you, all your connections cut off and lost from you is what you used to claim.
So the reality is that each person is going alone to Allah.
And if the affairs between him and his Lord are good today, then he will be successful tomorrow.
And if the affairs between him and his Lord are not good today,
then he will not be successful tomorrow.
Nothing can save him, nothing can help him. Nothing at all.
So at the end of the day, each person should think
that How is my relationship with my Lord?
Do I love him?
Do I fear Him?
Do I thank him? Do I respect him? Am I concerned about his pleasure? Am I concerned about his anger?
Am I concerned about making him happy? Or am I indifferent? Am I distant? Am I far away?
Depending on how a person's relation is with his Lord, today, he will be either successful or a failure tomorrow.
Because we see that a believer who may be committing mistakes, but he has love and fear of Allah.
What's going to happen with him, that he will be brought very close to Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment.
And Allah will talk to him privately. Nobody else will be able to hear the conversation. And allow will ask him, did you do such and such?
Did you do such and such and he will confess he will admit until he will think that that's it? I'm doing I'm finished?
And what will Allah say?
That I covered the sins of yours and lunia and today I forgive them.
Why? Because his relation at the end of the day was good with Allah.
You see, every person is sinful, meaning every person no matter how righteous he is, he does make mistakes.
Every single person he does fall short in some matter. But if at the end of the day he seeks forgiveness from Allah,
he has fear of Allah,
then he will be fine. But if he's indifferent, he doesn't care. He doesn't care about what Allah has commanded. Then obviously Allah will be indifferent to him as well. He will not care about him as well.
Tina from the
yesterday's lesson, there was too much repetition of siddik and it really moved me on and I was thinking how one can really stand firm on being
it's really challenging. If you really think about it honestly, sometimes becomes very challenging. And today I got the answer that if you always keep this fact in your mind that you are on the end of the day, going to be responsible all day.
yourself in front of Allah subhanaw taala, then you are, then you have no fear, because who cares, you have to care about yourself, then only then you get the energy and the courage to courage to stay.
I was just thinking many times people justify their actions or wrong actions by saying that we're humans and that we make mistakes. And to that, I just want to say that making a mistake, for example, if we were to use the example of Salah would be setting your alarm and say, for some reason or another, you did not wake up, you're that deep in your sleep, that would be a mistake, but to not set your alarm and to not have the intention of waking up, that is just outright disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala so you gotta ask yourself, are you being disobedient? Or are you making mistakes? Exactly. Because of a person is trying and still he makes mistakes, then Allah knows that
the person is sincere, and that he's trying, but if a person does not even try, and he says if Allah we should, then I'll get up. And if I don't get up that means Allah does not want me to that this person does not care and such a person alone does not also care for him.
