Lesson number 168. So to hedge, I am number one to 24
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Surat Al Hajj is a very unique surah of the Quran. And it is unique in many ways. Firstly, some parts of the sutra were revealed before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam migrated to Medina and some were revealed after he migrated. So, some parts of the solar are murky and other parts of the solar are muddy.
Which is why you will see in some must have you will see the solar written as a machiya. And in other mishap, you will see the solar written as l madonia. This is not because there is a contradiction. This is because parts of the sudo are murky and some parts are muddy.
And the parts of the solar which are murky, they will reveal towards the later part of the mechanism and the parts of the solar which are maddening, they will revealed after sort of the news.
Secondly, this is the only sort of the Quran in which there are two such a dilemma.
So how many suggested are here in the sola tube, and usually, how many are there one. Also we learned that some part of the surah they were revealed while the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was traveling and others were revealed when he was at home.
And we also see that this surah is the only song that is named after one of the pillars of Islam.
It is named al Hajj, you do not find this word that is named a solar right or a song or as a cat. But what do you find ahead? And the solar is called a hedge. Why? Because it is mentioned how the hedge began. When Allah Subhana Allah commanded humankind to perform hajj and how that command was given, how it was spread amongst people.
And this aura it contains 78 versus
Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Yeah, you harness all mankind or people. It Dakota back home, fear your Lord, have fear of Allah. Why? Because in the Zelda sir it indeed the convergence of the final hour. It is shame on Aleem, it is a great thing. It is a terrible thing.
All people are being addressed. Yeah, a human ness. And the knee that begins with the AU hair, which is in order to alert the listener
that Be alert. This is a warning all mankind or people and anass includes all people of all ages of all races of all backgrounds, people who are Muslim, or they're not Muslim. All people are told that they should eat the core of bircham that all of you should fear your Lord, Fear Allah, have fear of him, have fear of his punishment have fear of his retribution.
And when a person has fear of Allah, then what does it mean? He fears displeasing him? He fears upsetting him. He fears incurring his anger His wrath.
And how does a person do that? That he does what Allah has commanded him and he refrains from what Allah has forbidden him
because if he does not care about the commands that Allah has given, then what is he doing?
He is incurring upon himself the anger of Allah. So yeah, you Hanna's it Dakota back on fear your Lord, because in Mozilla dasara Indeed, the conversion of the our Zelda is from the root letters, they lamb, lamb, and zela means to slip.
And Zelda Allah is to constantly slip, which is why the word Delta also applies to an earthquake. A tremor, why? Because people are constantly slipping. If they try to stand stable, if they try to stand stationary, they will not be able to constantly a person is slipping. So in nuzzles, elata Sara, the Zelda The convulsion the earthquake of the final hour, meaning that will begin the day of judgment.
What is it? It is shade on Aleem, it is a huge thing. It is a terrible thing in the way that it will distress people.
So, the convulsion of the hour that will begin the day of judgment is a serious matter.
It is a terrifying crisis. It's not like any other earthquake, any other tremor that has been witnessed by humankind.
If we learn about an earthquake that is extremely severe, we become so paranoid we become so fearful. But we see that the earthquake of the Day of Judgment is Shay on Aleem, there has been nothing like it that has ever been witnessed by humankind.
This is why oh people fear your Lord, because one day will come in which you will have to return to your Lord. And that day is not an easy day. It is a very intense and terrifying day.
And that day will begin with a violent tremor with a violent earthquake.
Instead of the Zelda II one and two, we learn it as zillertal Aldo, Zelda, Roger dill elbow as Allah, when the earth is shaken with its final earthquake,
no other earthquake will come after that a final earthquake. And as a result, what's going to happen? The earth is going to discharge its burdens. All that is hidden inside it is going to come out. All that is within it is going to come to the surface.
Right now we have the earth in a severe form. But on that day, because of the violent shaking, the violent convulsion, the earth will be turned flat,
So you can imagine what a great tremor it's going to be.
Instead of the Walker, I have 46 we learn either jetty or bludger. We're both settled Jubilee bus for Canada and Mombasa Mombassa
when the earth is going to be shaken with a severe convulsion severe earthquake. And as a result, the mountains are going to be broken down.
Just imagine all of the mountains are going to be broken down, and they're going to be crumbling. And they're going to turn into dust that is dispersing.
This is how severe that earthquake is.
Now, this sutra is called a hedge. But right at the beginning what is mentioned the Day of Judgment, the earthquake that will mark the beginning of the day of judgment. Why? Because there is a deep connection and resemblance between hedge and the Day of Judgment.
If you look at it at hedge, generally, people experience extreme heat,
isn't it? they experience a lot of heat, especially when standing at our fat
with their heads bare with nothing on top. What do people experience over there intense heat.
Similarly, at heart, there is a lot of traveling involved in which people experience intense heat. And we learned that on the Day of Judgment, they will also be a lot of heat because the sun will be extremely close.
And the people will be drowning in their sweat.
This is how hot that day is.
Secondly, we see that at Hajj. There are many, many crowds of people. There are 1000s and 1000s millions of people. And if you try looking at the people, it's like an ocean of people and endless crowd. And this is how the state will be on the day of judgment as well.
That people will be like locusts that are spreading everywhere.
CalFresh, right, like locusts that are spreading everywhere that are so many number that it's impossible to count them.
We also see that I've had people experience a lot of waiting period. You have to go anywhere you have to wait. you're traveling from one place to the other, you have to wait. Sometimes you're stuck in traffic, sometimes you have to wait for your turn.
And similarly on the day of judgment as well. There will be a lot of waiting. The length of the Day of Judgment is how long 50,000 years.
And we also see that it had there are so many people all different different types.
You'll see different colors, different races, people have different backgrounds. And on the day of judgment as well, from the first man to the last all people will be assembled.
Also we see that our hedge especially the men as they're wearing white, those two white sheets, what do they remind you of typically the coffin, right.
The shroud in which the dead person is covered in before he is there, too.
Rest in his grave.
And we also see that over time what happens that Iran it gets covered in dust.
It gets covered in mud
at Mozilla when people sleep on the floor at night, not on any beds. And when they wake up in the morning, you see that they have their covered industry covered in mud.
And this is how people will come rising out of mud on the day of judgment as well.
Then we also see that at hedge of a person loses his family. If he loses his friends. If he loses his group, then he feels alone in that huge crowd.
Despite the fact that there are 1000s of people, still a person feels alone.
And on the Day of Judgment, every single person will go to Allah alone.
While aka DJ damona for the camera holla Kanako a while I'm over, every single person will go to a lot alone, despite the fact that every single person will be there. But each individual will feel alone.
So how great is that day? Yo matter owner on the day that you see it? See what yo matar owner, her hair refers to the Zelda The day meaning when you will see it's traumatizing and frightening events, the chaos and the panic that Zelda is going to create. What's going to happen? Does Hulu, it will be distracted, it will forget it will neglect who will neglect Columbo there are 10 every nursing mother, every breastfeeding mother is going to forget about a man of the art about that which she was nursing.
The very child that she was nursing, she's going to forget about it, because of the fear of that day, because of the violent earthquake,
then Hello is from the rotators then learn
the rule. And the rule is to forget something, it is to overlook something.
And generally the cause of this neglect or overlooking his extreme fear and terror.
When a person out of extreme fear, he gets so occupied with himself that he forgets even the most important things.
He forgets even the most important things. So, hello, every nursing mother is going to forget is going to neglect Coloma, there are 10 What is she going to neglect of that child that she was nursing?
Now what is this word model their model there is from their newsletters or our board or in from the word of Allah. And Radha is to nurse it is to breastfeed.
And more there as well as more there are
both words more of their own. And more there are two are both used for a female that nurses her offspring, that nurses her child, any female.
Even the word more there it appears to be masculine. If you look at it, the word motive there without the demo booth at the end it appears to be masculine however, it is still used for the female nurses.
But the difference between more there and more there is that the word most there are the ones that you see over here is used for the woman who is engaged in the act of breastfeeding at the moment.
Do you understand more there is the woman who is engaged in the act of breastfeeding
who is in the state of breastfeeding.
When the breast is in the child's mouth, so Coloma they are in every nursing mother is going to forget about the child that she was suckling the child that she was nursing.
If you look at it, at the time when a mother is breastfeeding her child, all that she can think of all that she's concerned about is her child.
And the only thing that will make her neglect her child is something that is extremely traumatizing, is something that is extremely fearful. So we see that at that moment. Despite the fact that she loves her child. He is the most dear one to her at that moment. She will forget about him. She will forget about the child and she's going to leave that child that had a column of their art in that
whatever and she will miscarry. She
You will drop, who will drop Kaluga to Hamlin every possessor of load, meaning every pregnant female is going to drop Hannah her her pregnancy, her load, meaning the load that she is carrying in herself, every pregnant mother is going to miscarry, her fetus
is going to miscarry the child that she has in her womb.
Because of the extremely traumatizing events of that day, because of that violent earthquake, what's going to happen, She will give birth to the child, even if it's extremely small, even if it's premature, She will give birth.
When does this happen usually, when a woman undergoes extremely traumatizing experience, that she miscarried the child that is in her womb.
Somebody was once telling me that in the recent earthquake that happened in Japan, there was a woman who was pregnant. And when the earthquake started, she went into labor. And before even the earthquake had completely finished, the effects were over, she had already delivered her child in the house, they couldn't even get her out of there. Why? Because of the violent movement, because of the fear. She went into labor, even though she wasn't fully ready. So called no more of that. And what other clue that the hamlet Hamlet
was, what are NASA? So this is the state of the mothers? What about the rest of the people? Allah says, What are NASA and you will see the people suka as ones who are intoxicated.
You will see the people as though they are intoxicated. But are they really intoxicated? Well, my home be tsuchiura. But they're not actually intoxicated. They're not at all intoxicated.
So Kara is a Florida cyclon from the route letters seen calf.
And cyclon is someone who is intoxicated by alcohol or some drug that he has taken.
And it is a state in which a person is almost fainting, is almost unconscious, and he is overcome by the state that he is not able to walk properly, he's not able to speak properly, he's not able to stand properly. So you will see the people as though they're drunk. But they're not actually drunk. It's not that they have taken some drugs, but they appear to be drunk, why, because of the manner in which they will be screaming.
The manner in which they will be waiting in which they will be running about in which they will be falling, they will not be able to walk straight, they will not be able to realize what's going on, as if they're fainting, as if in a state of hangover colliding and bumping into one another. This is the state of people on that day
that people will have completely lost their senses. What are kynar ademola he should eat, then what is the reason that people appear to be socata because there are dabbawala the punishment that is coming from Allah at that point, it is extremely severe. What are kinara de la de shadie because of which they will appear to be drunk, as if they're going crazy as if they have lost their minds.
And also because they know that the punishment of Allah is coming their way. This is why out of extreme fear, they will appear to be drunken.
Imagine how distressful that they will be
if you look at it, three descriptions have been given in this ayah.
The first two are related to women. And the last one is gender.
If you look at it, women, they are the ones who generally have great tenderness and concern for others,
isn't it so women, especially mothers, they're extremely tender, they are extremely concerned about other sometimes they will put themselves into extreme hardship in order to comfort their own children in order to make them relaxed in order to feed them in order to nurse them.
But we see that on that day. Even these women, the nursing women and the pregnant women,
they will lose that affection they will lose that tenderness because of the extreme fear that is going to overcome them.
People generally care about others only up to a certain degree
only until their life is not in danger
as soon as their
Life isn't dangerous. Typically what do people do?
They're more concerned about themselves, then it's a little.
It's only very few and extremely dedicated people that will sacrifice themselves in order to save others.
And amongst them are who women generally, mothers generally, that a mother will give up her life in order to save her child.
But what do we see that that day is so severe, it is so great that no one is going to be concerned about the other. Each person is going to be occupied with his own affairs. Each person is only going to be concerned about himself. He will not care who is falling besides him.
Who is getting injured besides Him, who the mother is throwing away? Who the mother is dropping? No, no one is going to be concerned about the others. Even the prophets of Allah, what will they say? Neff? See, Neff see myself myself.
There was an experiment once in which this monkey, the female monkey and her child, they were put in a cage.
And that cage was gradually heated up. As it became hot, the mother she picked up the child. And as it became more hot, she dropped the child. And as it became more hot, she got on top of the child in order to save herself from the heat.
This is what happens that even mothers were extremely tender. They only have affection for their children up to a certain degree. When their own life is in danger, then they forget about even their own children.
And this is the case with the rest of the people as well.
So what do we see over here, that the Day of Judgment is an extremely serious day.
It's an extremely traumatizing experience. This is why Allah says you get a you harness it dacotah poco fear your Lord, do something to protect yourself on that day. Do something to save yourself on that day. This is going to be the state of general people of the masses. What are you going to do to protect yourself from the horrors and the frightening events of that day?
Do something for yourself it Dakota berko.
But despite the fact that the Day of Judgment is such a serious day, and Allah warns us so clearly, still there are people who are heedless of it.
Women are nasty and amongst the people, my yuja delu there is one who dispute there is one who argues about what filler he concerning of law.
Despite the fact that the day of judgment is coming, that it's going to be such a severe day and Allah is warning us have fear of your Lord. Instead of fearing Allah there are those people who argue about Allah.
What does it mean by this huge Eddie to fill a
huge need to fill a he can be in many different ways. For instance, a person are us about the power of a law about the ability of Allah, that Allah is not able to resurrect, that a law cannot resurrect people, how is it possible that when every single person has died, their bodies have turned into dust and bones, they have been disintegrated into the earth? How is it possible that each and every single person can be resurrected?
So this is arguing about what about the power of Allah, about the Quadro of Allah His ability
and not just his power, not just his ability, but also his commands? The commands that He has given, instead of accepting them? There are those people who argue over them.
Similarly about his decisions about his promises, instead of believing in them, instead of following them. There are people who argue,
and this argument is based on what Allah says behavior in men without any knowledge.
Meaning, this argument of this person is based purely on ignorance. He has no idea about what he's arguing about and in reality, what is he doing with who and he is following galusha yutani married every rebellious devil, when he are using this way, about Allah based on ignorance, then in fact, he is following the footsteps of Wu, kala shaitana Marie
who shaitana Maria Maria from the roof letters mean that
an omelet is used for such a tree that is bear meaning it has no leaves on it.
Similarly, it is also used for a man that does not have a beard.
And from this the word married is used for selling
thing that is free of any good.
Like, for example, if there is a tree, but it does not have any leaves, no flowers, no fruit, what good is it? It's free of any height, it does not bring any benefit. If you stand under it, would it give you any shade? No. If you try to benefit from the fruit that it produces, will you be able to find any fruit on it? No way. So married is used for that which is free of any good that has no hide in it.
And then sometimes it's also used for that which is rebellious.
Because generally, who rebels, those people who do not have any hair in them.
So I have your color shape on
it, please. What did he do? He disputed with a lost printer. He argued with Allah. He argued about, about his decision about the command that Allah subhanaw taala had given a lad commanded him prostrate, did he prostrate? No, he refused. And instead of apologizing, instead of accepting his mistake, he argued. And his dispute was based on what it was also based on ignorance later in, because what evidence that he gave, and I don't mean who I am better than Adam. This is why I should not prostrate to him.
And we discussed earlier that how the logic that he gave that an Ohio men who have adopted him and not involved a woman playing even that is not correct, because clean clay in so many ways is better than fire.
So we see that the argument that shavon presented, it was based on what belie their element, it was based on ignorance. So when a person argues about the matters of religion,
whether it is about Allah subhanaw taala, or it is about His power, His promises, his commands, or it is about the Day of Judgment, then such a person, what is he doing? He is following the footsteps of he believes
he is following the footsteps of shaitaan
we see that the Day of Judgment is a great reality. It's a major event that all people are going to witness.
But despite that, there are people who doubt its reality, who do not believe in uncertainty.
And they reduce its value How? By arguing about it, because when something is disputed about what happens, people do not fear it as much,
isn't it and other people also, they're not that concerned about it anymore, because many times when measures are disputed over without knowledge, then they are misrepresented to people.
And because they are misrepresented people do not have any value for it anymore, they do not assign any value to it, they do not fear it, they do not give any importance to it.
So we see that the Day of Judgment is a huge reality. But instead of accepting it, instead of preparing for it, there are people who begin to argue about it. And such arguments are based on complete ignorance. For example, we learned in sort of trc is 77 to 78 that our me are insane and Hakuna who may not fighting for either who will assume will be wild or banana method. And when I see a Hanukkah on the menu here Aloma where he or ami,
that an example is mentioned of how people dispute about the Day of Judgment, without any knowledge,
that does man not consider that we created him from a mere sperm draw. Then at once he is a clear adversary, he becomes a clear opponent to a loss of data. And he presents for us an example and he forgets his own creation. And he says who will give life to bones while they're disintegrating.
So, this is what he argues about the day of judgment that How is it possible? How can these bonds be given life when they have been disintegrating?
So we see that such people who argue about the Day of Judgment, in reality, they are not serious about it? In reality, they are in doubt about it.
Because the person who is serious and concerned about something, then he does not remain ignorant of it. What does he do? He begins to gain more knowledge about it. Why? So that he can argue more? No, so that he can do something for himself?
So a person who truly believes in the Day of Judgment, what is his reaction going to be? He is going to be serious about it. He is going to learn more about it. He is going to prepare for that day. And a person who is not that serious about the Day of Judgment, who does not believe in
They have judgment. What is his attitude going to be? He's going to begin to argue about it. have doubts about it, spread those doubts among people.
Because the Day of Judgment is such a terrifying reality, that when you read its descriptions, it causes your heart and your skin to shiver.
It makes you fearful. But why is it that there are people who still have the audacity to argue about it? It's because they don't believe in uncertainty.
So such are being mentioned. Allah says katiba ie it has been decreed for him. For who, for shaytani married for the rebellious shape on meeting this has been decreed this has been made incumbent that unknown who indeed he manteau Allahu whoever befriends him, the one that from well lamea the word Well, he is also from the same word. So whoever befriends shaytaan What's going to happen? For unknown who then indeed, he meaning shavon and married is going to be Lou who he will misguide him, Who is he going to misguide The one who befriends shaytaan.
So this has fixed this has written this is well known. This is an established fact that anyone who befriends shape on what's going to happen to him, he is going to be misled by shape.
And where his shape I'm going to take him where he and he will lead him in our adversaries the punishment of the Blaze. Why? Because that is where he is headed to.
So if a person argues about such realities, like that of the Day of Judgment, if he takes him non seriously, then he will be deprived of hidayah he will be deprived of guidance, because in reality, what is he doing? He's following the footsteps of shavonne
and the one who follows the footsteps of shaitan then he will only be led to the hellfire.
We learn in total cos I number 41. What's your Allahumma Imogen? You're the owner Elon now, well multi, multi million Sauron. And we have made them leaders inviting to the fire. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped. So the one who befriends shavon shavon is leading him were into hellfire.
So what's the connection of this ayah with the Day of Judgment, that a person who does not believe in the certainty of that day,
who does not take that day Seriously? Who does not prepare for that day?
Then reality? Where is he heading towards Hellfire, because he has a friend to chip on, because of which he has a non serious attitude towards such a serious date.
Think about it, if a person has a major exam coming up a major exam.
And he ends up sitting with such students who are not that concerned at all about that exam.
Every year they come and sit for the same exam, they have a lot of money to spend, they come and sit for the same exam, they fail, and they come back again and they fail such people if a person befriends them, what's going to happen to him? He's going to end up failing as well.
So choose your friends wisely.
Who are we following? Who are we wait? Are we with those people who are serious about the day of judgment? Or are we with those people who are not even concerned about that day, who don't even worry about that day
because when a person is amongst those who are serious about that day, then only he will be able to prepare for it. Then only he will be able to have fear of Allah and refrain from such actions which are going to cause him trouble on that day.
