Are the below human a [???]load over Julius Malema Rahim?
wamena Nessie, and among the people is my uj the Lu who argues filet concerning Allah. But how belay there is a man without any knowledge was who the and nor any guidance.
Previously what was mentioned, the one who argues without any knowledge. But over here there's an addition well our houda without any guidance even what our kitayama need nor based on a book that is money that is enlightening.
What does money mean? One that gives new one that enlightens. One that radiates, one that gives light. So we see that there is one person who argues based on complete ignorance. And there is another person who also argues based on complete ignorance, but over here, the one was mentioned is that he does not have any logical OR textual evidence. You understand? Previously, the one who does not have any real What does that refer to? He does not have any logical evidence. So Allah gives logical evidence over here, he does not have reason, meaning any logical evidence. Well, now hold on, we're lucky to have him on me, nor does he have any textual evidence.
So his dispute his argument is based purely on his desires, his opinions, and that is because he is extremely arrogant.
He does not know anything,
yet he dares to argue, yet he dares to refute. He does not have any evidence, neither logical nor textual.
So what's the reason then? What is it that makes him so argumentative? concerning the commands of Allah, the decree of Allah, the promises of Allah, it's his pride.
We learn instead of traffic, I have 56, that in alladhina, yuja deluna fee is a law he behavior is often at our home, in fields who do him a LAN cable on man whom be bad is he indeed those people who dispute concerning the signs of a low without any authority having come to them, without any evidence having come to them, there is not within their hearts except pride. They only have pride in their hearts, the extent of which they can never reach.
So they consider themselves to be what they are not actually. They consider themselves to be brilliant, to be very knowledgeable, to be extremely smart.
Which is why they deny Allah, they deny the Day of Judgment, they don't take it seriously. But in reality, they are in great deception.
Because the one who is arrogant, he cannot learn.
He cannot acquire any knowledge.
And when he does not learn, how will he change himself? Only the person who humbled himself can learn something.
And he's so arrogant that when the truth is presented before him, when he's told, when he's given some logical evidence, some textual evidence, for instance, about the coming of the day of judgement about its reality. What does he do? What is his reaction? Fanny? etouffee he twisting his neck
why, out of arrogance?
Sunny is actually funny. This is some fairing and it's on the roof letters, sir known Yeah.
And sunny is one who faults we learned earlier in solitude, Allah in the home he has known as Sudoku, right, that they fold their chests. So Sani is one who folds
one who bends one who is second
Sani as name, remember. So the word tiny has two meanings, one who bends and also one who is second. So sanea, he turns, he bends, what does he bend, it really
is the side of the body of a person from neck
all the way down. So it is the side of the body of a person.
So saniya V, he twists himself away, meaning he turns himself away. When the truth is presented before him, he shows his side he bends aside away from him. It's not just that he turns his face away, but what does he do? He completely turns away.
He completely ignores
you know, for example, you give some food to a child and he does not want to eat it. What is he going to do?
He's going to look away. If he does not want it, he is going to literally move away.
He's going to completely turn around. So Sania, it's really this is his reaction towards the truth. When some evidence is presented before him, he doesn't even bother to look at it. And as a result, what happens, he is misguided himself and he also misguides others,
Leo lilla and sebelah lair he so that he misleads others from the way of Allah,
meaning such a person is astray himself, and he also leads other people astray.
Because we see life, for example, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the leaders especially of the flourish of Makkah, Abu Jamal, Abu lahab, all of these people, they were very influential, but they had no knowledge, neither logical nor textual. And purely on the basis of arrogance, they denied what the prophet sort of artisan would tell them.
And when the truth would be presented to them, when it would be explained to them, when some evidence would be presented, what would they do, they would just turn away. And as a result, all the people would follow them blindly as well. So saniya it fee you learn civilian there. For such a person, Allah says lo COVID. dounia is young. For him in this dunya is humiliation.
And we see that all such people were humiliated in dystonia. When we do who, and we shall make him taste, Yamal pm on the day of standing on the Day of Resurrection, such a person who will be made to test or double what is the punishment of the burning?
And how do you have a cough? We have done this word earlier, when the people who belong memorizing them said, Oh, no, how did you who
saw our double hurry such a punishment that is going to burn him?
So we see that, in this ayah, the reaction of the arrogant ones has mentioned that when the truth is presented, when evidence is given, this is their reaction.
Why? Because they think that they do not need to learn, they do not need to know.
Because what is the reason behind a person turning away from the truth that is presented? He thinks he is above that, he thinks he does not need to know about it.
Like for example, if you tell somebody let me teach you how to calculate the percentage of such and such thing is I have no thank you very much. He turns away, what does it mean? I don't need this kind of knowledge. I don't need it. I'm to above this. Right. If you tell somebody come Let me show you how to read.
Even though he does not know how to read, he will turn away Why based on his arrogance. So after times, those people who have plenty of dystonia, what happens they think that they do not need to learn about the religion. They do not need to learn about what the Quran says. They don't feel the need to study it. They don't feel that they need to have any association with it.
We learn in sort of so I number 83 that what either an unknown either insanity or other one Abidjan, EP,
that when we restore favor upon human being, what does he do? He turns away and he distances himself that if you offer him some knowledge, he says no, thank you very much. I don't need it. If you offer him the knowledge of the Quran, you will say I don't need it.
Likewise, when such a person is called to seek forgiveness, even then he turns away.
Like for example, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when the monastic in the hypocrites when they were invited come, the prophet will seek forgiveness for you. What did they say? No, thank you very much.
We don't interrupt them unethical if I were either Kayla home Dara lo yester Hello como su de la de La Russa home, what are at home your Sedona or Homestuck rune and when it is said to them come the Messenger of Allah will seek forgiveness for you. They turn their heads aside and you see them evading while they're arrogant.
So what is it that prevents a person from learning
from going closer to Allah? It's his pride. It's his arrogance. And such a person will suffer the consequences of his pride in the dunya and also in the hereafter. That in this world is humiliation in the Hereafter is a punishment of burning
their liquor that is meaning this punishment is be male ultimately adakah because of what your two hands have put forth, you are in this punishment of hotteok because you did something Bhima goddamnit Yoda it's because what's your boy
Han sent ahead,
what anila and that Indeed Allah lays a viola lamb and lil RB he is not at all unjust to his servants. Allah is extremely just. And if anyone is punished, either in the dunya or in the era, it's not because of what is being unfair towards him. It's because he has brought about that punishment on himself. It's because he has made himself worthy of that punishment.
Allah is not unjust at all.
Women are nasty mmm among the people, my Yarbrough the law her is one who worships of law. How are the whorfin on an edge?
What have we been told to do?
That we should enter into the religion completely and wholeheartedly
without insulting Baqarah 208? Yeah, are you alladhina amanu odo Rufus in me gafa, enter into Islam completely,
submit yourselves fully.
But still, there are some people, yes, they do worship Allah. They are believers, however, they worship Allah at the edge.
Now imagine if a person is standing at the edge of a cliff.
What will happen if there is the slightest movement, if he is moved even a little bit, if he's shaken even a little bit, if he's frightened, even a little bit, what's going to happen? He's going to fall. Right? He's going to fall down. So we have been told to enter into Islam completely, but there is a person who worships Allah at the edge, meaning with doubt, with Chuck
and he is standing at the edge as though he will fall at any moment.
He does not enter completely,
he does not enter unconditionally, but rather he worships Allah conditionally.
he worships Allah at an edge.
So, what happens then, for him, then if asaba who Hayden if some good reaches,
if something good happens, as a result of his or whether he is worshiping the law, he makes the law his daughter is accepted, he is given height, what happens if one maybe he becomes very satisfied and content with what with his worship, with what he has received? He becomes very happy. Everything is fine, as long as he is getting high, as long as he is getting some benefits out of the religion. Nothing is challenging, everything is smooth. Whatever he does becomes easy. No difficulties, no opposition, only praise only fame.
So what happens is fine. However, we're in a Saba too. But if it reaches him, fit not on some test.
If some difficulty reaches him, what happens to him in club he turned our wedgie upon his face,
he turns away from their religion.
If some test comes to him, if some trial comes to him, some difficulty comes to him.
Like for example, he makes da da is not accepted.
He only earns halaal and because of that, he suffers in his dunya
he chooses to have only good friends and he feels lonely.
he worships a lot. But despite that, he suffers in his life.
You understand? that a person begins to worship Allah but because of that, he experiences difficulties.
And these difficulties can come from other people in the form of opposition, in the form of mockery, in the form of lack of cooperation on their part, or it could be the circumstances that are created by Allah subhanaw taala in a person's life,
that he suffers from an accident he suffers from a difficulty.
So, what happens to him in Qatar by analogy, he leaves the religion he turns back on his face,
meaning he reverts to unbelief. And when a person does that, in reality hozelock dunia when
he has suffered the loss of this dunya and he has also suffered great loss in the
a person may wonder how is he suffering loss in the dunya
because he has left his religion
If you were suffering from any difficulties or difficulties gone,
but the fact is that many times what happens even when a person leaves the religion are his difficulties going to go away from him know
like, for example the person is suffering from a great difficulty he makes there are difficulties still there loses Faith is the difficulty gone? No, still there.
So, hospital dunya
similarity sometimes people think that they're being opposed simply because of their religion.
That if they follow the religion, they will not be treated properly by the rest of the people. But the fact is, that people who don't respect you for who you are, they don't care whether you have your face covered, whether you have your head covered or whether you don't have your head covered, if they dislike you, they dislike you because of your skin color,
because of your accent,
because of your background.
So, even if a person leaves a religion, he will still face difficulties and challenges from such people,
those who dislike him.
So, hustla dunia he has lost dunya and even though the person leaves religion, will he get everything that he wants to dunia?
Will he know
Is he never going to suffer from any trouble afterwards? No, ha sila dunya. Will a hero and in the hereafter also, he has incurred great loss.
And then Liga who will Hassan and will be that is the clear loss.
What is the clear loss
that a person suffers in this world and he also suffers in the hereafter.
So we see that in this ayah. Another type of a person is mentioned.
A person who does not enter into Islam completely,
who does not enter into the religion wholeheartedly
with his mind, with his body with his heart with his soul.
Rather, his interests they lie with the benefits of this dunya.
But at the same time, he may call himself a Muslim. And he may also do certain actions to prove himself as a Muslim.
But his main interest is what his main goal is what the dunya
which is why if he gained some benefit, because of this religion, he will continue with the religion.
But as soon as he incurred some loss because of the religion, what will happen, he will leave it.
So he does not worship Allah unconditionally, but rather he worships Allah conditionally.
We learned earlier about the story of a youth center.
That how he had so much good health, wealth, children, family fame, he had everything that any person could ever desire.
But all of that was taken away from him.
He suffered from physical illness.
He suffered from loneliness. He suffered from poverty. his wealth was eradicated his children, all of them died.
But we see that still he remained a devout worshipper of Allah.
He neither suffered Indonesia, nor did he suffered India.
Because of his patients, Allah subhanaw taala gave him his health back. Allah gave him his wealth back, he gave him his children back
in the Hereafter, their ward of those who are patient is endless.
But if a person says, What did I do? What mistake did I make what sin that I commit, that because of this, I have to suffer so much.
My health has gone, my wealth has gone, my life is full of troubles and he leaves the worship of Allah.
He begins to think negatively about Allah.
If a person becomes like this, then is his life going to be happy? No. Is he going to gain any benefit in the afterlife? No.
Such a person will incur loss in the dunya and also India.
So we should learn from the example of the prophets of Allah.
That they underwent so many difficulties, but we still see them as devout worshippers of Allah.
Because they had entered into the religion completely wholeheartedly.
Like for example, if a person has a child, when you have a baby, you have the baby, you have to look after the baby.
You cannot say I want to take a break back to send just for one month, then I'll get the baby back. Can you do that? No, you can't. When you have the baby. You have to look after the baby. You have to stay up during the night you have to stay up during the day.
You have to sacrifice so many things, you have to bear the difficulty.
But do you ever say I don't want this child anymore? The child should go away from me. will love Please take this child away from me with any mother ever pray for that? No. Because when you have accepted the child, then whatever difficulties come, what do you say it's part of the package. Right?
Where I become so happy and seeing my child, if I become miserable sometimes, because of his constant crying, it's okay. It's part of the deal. It's part of the package. And that's only possible when you have accepted the
people who are constantly in denial, they're not able to accept such difficulties.
So we see, similarly with the religion of Allah, once a person has accepted it,
once a person has fully adopted it, then whether it's difficult or it's easy, what does he say? part of the package? Okay, nothing comes easy in this world anyway. With everything that you get, there's always some difficulty. If you see a lovely rose, you will also find points,
So with every good thing, there is also difficulty. Just because there is difficulty doesn't mean you leave it, no, then we should not have this kind of attitude with the religion.
That just because I used to make the wrong my door is not accepted. Therefore, I've stopped making door.
I used to recite the Quran, my life still was difficult. This is why I stopped.
I used to recite my morning evening with God, still I got hurt, this is why I have stopped. No, this is not the way of the believer.
This is not the way of the one who is truly accepted his religion.
And this conviction only comes when a person is certain about the Day of Judgment.
When he realizes that this life is temporary, if I do suffer some difficulty, it's okay. It will pass. And even for this difficulty, there is reward,
isn't it? Because when a person knows that, okay, somebody is looking at me with those eyes, somebody mocking me somebody is passing those comments about me. Allah has heard, he will give reward to me. What do we learn in the Quran, that those people who make fun of the Muslims today, tomorrow they will be laughed at.
We see this Allah health, right at the edge that a person is not fully in. Because what we generally think that if a person is fully in the religion, he is becoming extremist, right? And if he's at the edge where he is, he has he's following the deen. But he's not really following the theme. Right? That he has very well assimilated amongst the people, then this is the correct way. And we impose this on others that this is the way of the religion, this is what Islam teaches us.
Whereas we see that the prophets of Allah, what did we learn about them, you cite your own if
you cannot do use it or want to feel high, right? If you're standing at the edge of the cliff, you cannot do that. Because if you move even a little bit, you will fall. You can only do use it around and feel high, right? If you're in the fields, if you're in the metals, it's only possible then. So we have to be very careful that what kind of worship? Is it that we are doing?
Is it just at the edge to just do the bare minimum and get through? Or is it that we are fully in with our heart, with our mind with our body fully in the religion?
Unfortunately, every single person has his own definition of what the middle path is what moderation is. Some people say moderation is that you do the highlight. And you also do a little bit of how long you follow the commands, but you also don't follow certain commands. This is what moderation is and according to others, moderation is that you do what Allah has commanded you to do. But according to others that is being an extremist. But we see that the definition of moderation is what which Allah subhanaw taala gives us
which is being balanced. And being balanced means that you do what you're supposed to do.
Because if you will leave one thing, are you going to be balancing at all? No, you're going to fall into one side. If you do one extra thing, if you neglect one thing, if you go beyond what is commanded, then you're not in the religion anymore. You're going on to an extreme. So we see that moderation is that a person does what is commanded. And being on the edge is that a person is edgy about if he's not sure about it.
And he does not do what is required.
We see children if you agree to everything that they asked, If you say yes, yes, yes and everything. They become very happy, isn't it? But the moment you say no. When you say okay, you have to do this. All of a sudden, they will not want to listen to you. They'll become upset
Children are perfectly fine, and you just say no or you give that look and all of a sudden they'll start crying. So this is very childish behavior, that I will only cooperate with you. If you say yes to everything. And the moment you put a condition, you put some difficulty. If something goes against my desires, I'm not going to cooperate with you.
And we see that this is the way of who the winner 15
because we learned at the beginning of sorts of Bukhara that kolomna alone must show fee what either Alomar la him
that every time there is light, because of the lightning and thunder, what happens, they begin to walk. But as soon as it is dark, they stop right there.
They stop right there. They don't want to take any risks. They don't want to suffer from any harm. They don't want to suffer any loss in the way of the day.
This kind of behavior is also a result of selfishness, when a person only wants to benefit for himself now. And it's also because of desiring immediate gratification. immediate result. Because the person just wants good for himself, his focus is adonia. If I get it through the good, if I don't get it through, then I'm not going to be with this team anymore.
We see that a person can only bear the difficulties that come in his way in the religion when he has good thinking about when he has heard
that my lord is not at all unjust. He is not at all. And just we see that the prophets of Allah, they suffered more difficulties than any other person.
But they always had positive thoughts about Allah, always. So if we have the same thinking that my lord cannot be unjust, this is just an opportunity for me to excel further, then only we can take advantage of the situation that we have been put in.
But if we become negative, if we lose hope, then we're only going to do harm ourselves.
Allah says the other day, he begins to call, meaning he leaves the worship of Allah. And then obviously, because he's a human being, he needs somebody else's help, he cannot survive on his own. So he begins to call upon when doing Allah He besides Allah, whether it's an idol, or it is a saint, or it is a machine or anything, he puts his tawakkol on who malabu that which cannot harm him, woman a and for who and that which cannot benefit him.
If he calls upon it, it can either harm him, nor could it benefit him. Because all harm and all benefit comes to a person by whose permission
they're legal, who alleged will buried and that is the extreme error that is the extreme strain, meaning when a person ends up in this state, then he is very far from the truth.
Many times what happens when people make door to Allah and their doors are not accepted. What do they do? They despair from Allah's mercy and they turn to other than,
for example, people will do, it does not work, they will go to a grave,
they will go to a shrine,
they will do something of that sort. But the reality is that those who are involved besides Allah, they can neither benefit, nor can they bring any harm.
And similarly, there are people who give up hope of the mercy of Allah give up hope of help from Allah. And they put their complete trust on what anti-medication
they put their complete trust on some doctor, they put their complete trust in the treatment that they're taking,
or in the new method that they have adopted. Yes, taking the medication going to the doctor, getting yourself treated, that is necessary. But we see that the trust complete trust should be on who?
Allah soprano, that Allah will put Shiva in this
that a person does not say yes, I prayed. I prayed it didn't work. So therefore I've gone to the doctor. The fact is that when you were praying to Allah, you should have done something to help yourself as well.
The problem is in losing the faith in Allah.
that a person gives up hope of Allah.
Allah says the other day, he calls upon lemon surely the one who don't rule His heart is a karabo. It is near enough. He then has benefit.
Meaning he invokes the one whose harm is closer than benefit.
Meaning harm is more possible than benefit.
It's highly probable that he will incur loss because of him and not benefit.
Sell molar surely how wretched is a protector? Well a bit seller sheet and how wretched is the Associate?
Our sheet is from the rotators iron sheen law. And our sheet is used for such a companion or a friend who is very close to a person. And typically this word is used for someone who is from one's family members.
Because the word applies to the relatives from a person's father's side.
So Libby sloshy. What a wretched associate. What a wretched helper, what a wretched companion it is that he has adopted because such a friend such a molar can never help this person.
I remember once somebody was telling me,
it's a very funny story. It's a very sad story as well about how this family they used to live in a village and somebody came and stole their chicken.
So their chicken was stolen. So they were concerned that who's the thief? So they went up to this person and they said, Can you find who the thief is, and this person was supposed to be some big religious guy. And so he said, okay, bring me another chicken means slaughter a chicken and give it to me. So they brought the chicken, they slaughtered a chicken. He said, I still haven't figured out, bring me one more and bring me one more and then they ended up giving him a whole goat as well. Just to find out who stole the chicken. They gave up so many other animals to that guy, that he will somehow figure out who the thief is. So love it Sulmona. When a bit sad Archie,
the harm is more than the benefit. The loss that they incurred is much more than the benefit that they gained at the end, they still didn't find out who the thief was, because this man was only making more money off of them.
So, little bit Sulmona. Well a bit set our sheet when a person turns to other than Allah, then this is what happens.
He suffered great loss in dunya. Even
exactly, that even when you go to a doctor, they can only help you when Allah gives them to the movie.
So many times that happens, that a person goes to a doctor the doctor cannot diagnose what the problem is what the illnesses sometimes so many tests one test after the other year after year, but still the doctors cannot figure out so shifa comes only from
so even if a person is going to a doctor, even if a person is going to someone who can help him who should he asked help from?
Allah, Who should he depend on?
When it comes to pleasing other people getting some help out of them, we will give them so much one chicken after one chicken and then go out and then a cow and everything we will offer right.
Similarly, when it comes to pleasing some people pleasing some companies pleasing the boss pleasing this person pleasing that person, we will give up so much, we will wear certain clothes, we will dress up in a particular way, we will come at a particular time, we will speak in a particular way Why just to please them just to gain their approval so that perhaps they will help us somehow.
But we see that when a person turns to Allah, then there are only a few conditions, not many conditions.
And even one of them. We think twice about accepting that if Allah wants me to do this, how can I do it? It's too difficult. Too bad. I can't do it. Forget about it. I'll try something else.
