Lesson number 186 Serato for corn,
we only Ashura home and mentioned the day that he will gather them. When, on the day of judgment, he will gather who all the people, but in particular over here It refers to the machine. Because we see that the machine were the ones who had a lot of objections against the Prophet sallallahu sallam, against the Quran. And because they're the ones who do not believe in the Day of Judgment, who do not believe in the Hereafter, and as a result of that, they would raise objections against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So why yo my actual home, the day that he will gather them once a year or bounnam in Dune Allah and that which they worship besides Allah.
What is the reason why the machine did not like the Quran? Why they did not like the prophets of Allah?
What's the main reason behind that? Though, hate, they did not like the heat. They did not like the fact that there is only one being was worthy of worship. What about all those Gods whom they've been worshipping all their lives?
This is why they did not wish to accept the Quran. This is why they did not wish to accept the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
So Allah subhanaw taala says way, oh, my Ashura one way may or will do nothing mendola the day that he will gather them and also all those beings on the worship besides Allah, and this includes every Mark booth, other than Allah, whether it is a prophet of Allah, or it is a righteous servant, or it is an angel, or it is the jinn. Or it is some inanimate beings anything that people have worshipped Besides, even they will be gathered
for Hulu, that Allah will say, do do those who were worshipped besides Allah? He will say to them, until altomare body has How old
are you the ones who misguided the servants of mine?
What does it mean by that?
Are you the ones who misguided these servants of mine the servants reverse to the machine? Meaning Did you tell them to worship you?
Did you lead them astray from worshiping only Allah? Did you command them that they should worship you?
Um, or humble Sabine? Or is it their who lost the way it is there who were misguided themselves that you never told them? But they invented these ways themselves.
So Allah subhanaw taala will connect all people on the Day of Judgment.
And he will bring the machine as well as all those beings and they worship besides Allah together.
And he will ask the idols he will ask those beings who are worshipped besides Allah, did you tell these people to worship you? Or are they at fault? Who is at fault here? Whose fault is it? Who is the culprit?
If you notice over here, Allah does not even speak the machete king himself. Why? It shows his anger towards them.
He does not even speak to them he asks the idols he asks all those beings were worshipped besides
Allah, they will reply soprano aka glorified are you what does it mean by this? Meaning Exalted are You about what does not refer to you? That How is it possible? We would ever tell people to worship us? We would ever command people that they should do [???].
And over here so panagia also expresses amazement. Like intro to noon, we learned that how come the believers did not say when they heard the false accusation against our shell of the learner, so panaca had ever done an early so honest of Hanukkah, glorified, are you glorified? Are you that you should have a partner, then we should tell people to do shake macaroni Jamba lelaina is not proper for us it is not appropriate for assembling from Berlin. Yeah. It is not appropriate for us. It is not right for us. And either mean dooney come in earlier, that we should take besides you any guardians.
It is not appropriate for us even that we should take any guardians besides you, that we should worship anyone besides you.
If it's not proper for us, then how could we ever tell people to worship others besides you?
You understand that murca
A young buddy Lennar and Natalie them in dooney come in earlier, we would never do this ourselves, then how could we tell others to do it? We would never do shake ourselves. How can we tell others to do
what I can, but Matata.
Why is it that these people that chick than whom been looser be they're the ones who lost their way? And how do they lose their way that matter to whom will
you give them a lot of dunia to enjoy you gave to them and you gave it to Who else? Their fathers to the point that had done decra that they forgot the reminder. What can komamura and they were people who were destroyed
in certain by either I 116
we learned that Allah subhanaw taala will ask a similar question from Rhys artists. On the day of judgment. We learned what it called a la jolla urban Imodium under colinas. It read only we're only eloheinu min. Dune Allah
that Allah will say to restart a salon that or is a sort of medium did you say to the people that you take me and my mother as two Gods besides Allah? Did you tell the people to worship you when your mother on a soprano aka he will say glorified or you may occasionally an akula malaise le bihac it is not proper for me to say what I do not have the right
in Kentucky to fuck other alimta. If I had said it, then you would know of it, Darla Murphy enough, see you know what is in myself, you know what is in my heart, that I do not even have the desire to be worshipped? I never said it. I never had the desire, whether our level morphine of seeker and I am so limited in my knowledge that I do not even know what is in your notes. In the loop. Indeed you are the knower of the MC.
We learn in sort of Saba as well. I have 40 to 41 that way, oh, my actual home, Jimmy are on on the day that he will gather all of them together. So my Colin melodica then He will say to the angels, when I come can we are
these people used to worship you? So Allah will ask the angel demon, that these people worship you. The angels, what will they say? That they will say super Hannukah and
glorified? Are you You are our wily mendonca him? Besides them, meaning we worship you? How can we tell people to worship us? Well, can we are with Luna Jin, rather these people used to worship the Jin x men own most of them were believers in that. Why will the angels say that? Because people when they do shake, who are they worshiping in reality? Check on because she found out them, he inspires them.
And as a result, they're worshiping charity.
So we see that on the Day of Judgment, all the people will be gathered together, especially the machine with who with those beings from their worship. And when Allah will question these beings, did you tell them did you promote this, they will refuse. They will refuse to accept any blame for any responsibility for it. They will absolve themselves in the day of judgment that we never told people. We never commanded people to worship us. We never misled them
into what medium I ate at we learn Calla sack furuno very bad to him. Were coluna and a leader that these gods they will deny their worship of them, and they will be against them opponents, they will become their opponents.
But what do people think today, when they're worshiping others besides Allah, when they pray to others besides Allah, that these beings will help us on the day of judgment?
But what do we see here? Will they help them? No, they will abandon them, they will become their opponents. So what do we see over here? This ayah it tells us the reason behind the misguidance of people, the reason behind the disobedience to Allah soprano.
And what is that we're lacking data.
What will all of these beings say on the day of judgment? that the reason why the people did shake was because you matter to who or whom you gave them a lot to enjoy in the world. Mutharika from Matter What does matter mean? enjoyment. You give them many worldly enjoyments them and also their fathers.
And they enjoyed so much that had done so that they forgot the reminder. What does the nickel refer to the Quran? The admonitions, the advice that the prophets gave that the book gave, they forgot everything. So what is the reason behind disobedience to a loss upon time? What is the reason
And behind the
comforts of this life,
that people get so lost in their comforts in their enjoyment, that they don't care about what Allah has commanded into the Lord, what did we learn? What is it that prevents a person from following the commands of Allah desires? What do desires mean?
Enjoying the comforts of this world.
And the second reason is happiness, for getting the message
that when a person is surrounded by ignorance, he forgets the message, he does not remember, he does not realize what is needed of him.
We see that when a person receives worldly blessings, and not just himself, but his forefathers, his entire family, his parents, he grew up in comfort, and he lives in comforts, his children are living in comforts, then what happens? When these conflicts are passed on from one generation to the other? The person thinks that what he's doing is right.
Because if he was doing something wrong, then he would not be enjoying life so much, isn't it? Think about it. Whenever a person is enjoying a lot of worldly blessings, what do we think they must be right in some way? They must be doing something right? That Ally's giving them so many blessings. So when a person is enjoying blessings, he thinks that what he's doing is right. And he thinks that whatever he does, these blessings will not be taken away from him. So when I can Matata him, he thinks that Ally's happy with him. And because of that, whenever he learned something about the deen, whenever he's given a warning, does he take benefit from it? No, he does not even pay any
attention to it.
On the other hand, when a person loses a blessing, when a person suffers from some worldly loss, then that keeps him humble, isn't it
that makes him turn to Allah.
I mentioned to the Hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was offered a lot of worldly blessings, what did he say? No, I would rather go hungry one day, and eat food the other day, this is what I want. Because when I will be hungry, then I will be humbled before you then I will remember you.
So whenever a person loses something in life, whenever a person suffers a loss, it makes him reflect on his actions. That what did I do? Maybe I did something wrong.
Whenever something happens, you always reflect on your actions. If you're suffering from an illness, you wonder, maybe because I looked at the illness of that person in this way, maybe this is why I'm suffering from the same illness. Maybe I passed a negative remark. This is why I'm hearing so many negative comments myself.
Maybe I am not grateful. This is why these blessings are being taken away from me, isn't it?
When you suffer, you analyze yourself.
So and on the other hand, when a person does not suffer, he thinks he's right. He does not think about changing himself. He does not think about improving himself. He is content the way he is.
And as a result, he continues the wrongs that he's doing.
Now, we see that this problem also existed in Makkah.
That in Makkah, the elite of the society,
who were they they were the main opponents, of Buddha, Buddha, all of these people who are very wealthy, very influential, very powerful. They were tribal leaders. They were those with authority. They were the ones who were also opposing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Why? Because they thought, we have wealth, we are right.
We are rich, we are powerful, we are right. And if Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was truthful, then he should have had a guns, he should have had an angel, he should not be suffering from all disparity. This is how they looked at it. So it deceived them.
So what do we see over here, that all these beings who were worshipped besides Allah, under their judgment, they will say that the reason why these people went astray was because by 31, what they had done is
they enjoy the dounia so much, that they forgot that they
were cannot komamura and as a result, they were people who are booth
booth is a must have from Bella Bella. And it means destruction.
And boot can also be understood as a plural of that if and bad it is one who is destroyed.
So what can a common Buddha headed towards ruin, doomed to ruin? This was their reality. Why? Because they were so lost in their worldly enjoyment, that they didn't even think about what they were doing.
They didn't even think about the guidance that Allah had sent and as a result, they were headed towards destruction.
For the caribou come, so they will deny you,
the Boo, who will deny all those beings who are worshipped besides Allah, who will they deny them when she came for the bukom they will deny you be methaqualone of what you say. You claim that they are Gods on the Day of Judgment, they will refute you.
You claim that these beings deserve worship, on the day of judgment, they will refute you fermat stlt aroona soften so you will not be able to avert a vert what
avert the punishment well, Anna Swan nor any help meaning you will not be able to help yourselves either woman elderly men come and whoever does wrong of you. And what does this woman refer to go for and chick?
Whoever does lose among you know, who are them and Kabira we will make him taste a great punishment.
Because the one who does shake he is committing the greatest injustice in America, the Roman army and the one who discovered the one who denies the messenger who denies the photon. Even he is a lolly wellcraft zerona homos lolly moon. So such people will have or they have been Kabbalah in the hereafter.
Now Allah subhanaw taala comforts the prophets
that women of Salah Kabbalah committed mursaleen and we did not send you before you will profit subtle autism, any of the messengers in LA, except in the home layer, gurunath term, except that they used to eat food, meaning they were human beings.
Every messenger who was sent before you, Who was he? A human being and what's the sign of that? In homeless Karuna. Tara, they used to eat food. And on top of that way, I'm sure to fill as well. And they would walk about in the marketplaces. Why? To earn a living to fulfill their needs. What is it show they were human beings? Now the real problem is that you're welcome liberal benefits.
We have made some of you for others a fitna a test, but us below will you do some work cannot book of us Lila and your Lord is ever seen.
Now in this verse, Allah subhanaw taala is defending his messenger, that you do not be distressed because of what these people are saying. Do not be distressed because of the objections that they're raising against you.
The messengers before you there were human just as you are.
They're not believing. And as a result of that the real issue is that some people become a trial for others. Whether I learn about the company, Berlin, fitna,
which are another Birla company, Berlin fitness, some of you have become a trial for one another. And because of that these people are not believing.
Now, the question is, what does it mean by this, that we have made some of you a trial for one another? How do people become a test for one another, a trial for one another.
It's because of the differences that exists between people,
that one has wealth, and the other does not have Well,
one has power, the other does not have power.
One is the leader, the other is not a leader. One is a master, the other is a slave, one has very good looks, the other does not have that QuickBooks. One is very successful in whatever he does. The other is not that successful.
Now, when people have this difference, this difference becomes a test.
Because if everyone was the same, there would be no problem.
But when there are differences between people, they become a trial for one another how, like, for example, the rich and the poor. There are tests for one another how,
like, for example, the Michigan of Makkah, they were very rich, and the profits are a lot of sitting, on the other hand, he was suffering from poverty before then this became a test for them. That they said if he's the messenger, how can we support
Similarly, the people who believed in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who were there, many of them were weak, many of them were slaves, many of them were not that wealthy. So the rich of the society, they were being tested by who by the poor of the society. That is that if you are upon truth, then how come you're suffering from poverty?
They said these poor people have to leave only then we will come and listen to you.
So what are our navbar the conveyor belt and fitness? People are a test for one another. And because of this difference,
They do not look at the reality, they do not look past one another, they do not do what is right, only because of one another. They know what should be done, but they will not do it. Why? Because the other person has become a test for them. Like for example, the machine of luck, they recognize the truth, but they will not accept it. Why, because of the poverty of the Muslims, because of the weakness of the Muslims, you understand. Similarly, we also know sometimes what we're supposed to do, but we will not do it, why we don't like the other person.
And if we do it, they'll become happy, I don't want to make them happy. This is why I'm not gonna do it. You understand? So what you're allowed to borrow the home liberty and fitness, people become a test for one another.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that our last panel data says I will test you and test others through you
I will test you each individual is tested by a loss of panel data. And I will test others through you that you will become a test for others. Each person is a test for others in some way or the other. One person is a desktop or another. This is why we are taught that there are other robina leather journal fitness and they'll call me oily me Don't make us a test for other people that because of us, other people are prevented from doing good.
Now, for example, how are people attached for one another?
Like for example, do people they cannot get along with one another and they happen to be married to one another? Now, what is the test for them living with one another? What is the test for them that in everything there is a conflict. One thinks one way or the other things the other way. One wants to wake up at a particular time the other wants to sleep at that time. One wants to eat at one time the other wants to just snack at that time. You understand? So the differences that people have in their habits in their behavior in their likes. What happens then it leads to conflict. It leads to dusts. It leads to fitna for one another. Similarly, children, they become a test for their parents.
How that when the children don't obey the parents when they don't listen to them.
There's conflict. The parents want one thing the children want something else. And it happens from such a young age that conflicts they begin from such a young age. This is what a fitna
similarly, people who are working together colleagues, they're working at the same place. But they just cannot get along with one another one works one way or the other works another way. One wants to do the work at a particular time. The other does not one thing that worked at that time.
So this is what a fitna.
So we see that people, no matter how they're related, whether they're related by blood, or they're related by some work that they do, or they're related by some friendship, anything, they will become a test for one another. Each person is going to be tested by others.
Because this life is about what a test. Leah bhalukpong a youcam arson harmala.
So every person is being tested. How can a person be successful in these tests? Allah subhanaw taala tells us it does me wrong. Will you be patient? It does me wrong. This is a question. And in this is encouragement, and also almost like a rebuke that will you not be patient, you have to be patient. Because without solver you cannot do anything in life. Like for example, you want to get up at a particular time the other person wants to sleep at that time you want them to wake up, they're not going to wake up, what do you have to do yell at them?
If you yell at them, what's going to happen? And argument is going to break out people who are living together, there will be no peace, there'll be no love. There will constantly be fights and arguments. One person has to do something. If you don't do something, you will not be able to do anything.
If your children are not listening is a solution that you always beat up. You always give them a timeout. You always tell them you're grounded. If you keep doing that. It's not going to lead anywhere. It's not going to solve any problem. What is the solution? sub adjust the room. So the way a person can pass these tests a person can go through these tests successfully is through humility, through patience, tolerance, self control, that a person overlooks the faults of the others that a person overlooks the
weakness of the other, he ignores them. And without these qualities, life will become very, very difficult. Remember that, if you don't have self control, if you don't overlook the mistakes of the others,
if you don't ignore the shortcomings of other people, you will not be able to live, you will not be happy, you will never be able to do anything.
Because when you're not going to do suffer, you want people to change, and you want people to change the way you want them to be, isn't it? Like, for example, you're doing something, the other person has a habit of constantly commenting on what you're doing. You don't like it, they live with you in the same house? What's the solution?
Tell them to go away. If you tell them to go away every time they're gonna feel very hurt, isn't it. And it's possible that they say something more harsh to you, which is going to cause a fight, which is going to create a rift in the house. Every time you come before them, tension, tension, tension, what is the solution?
Ignore, be patient, be tolerant, if you're not patient, you will not be able to do anything.
You will not be able to keep any relationship, you will not be able to maintain any relationship.
We see that in Makkah, the poor and the weak, they became a test for the leaders for the Michigan leaders.
And on the other hand, the leaders of Makkah, they were a test for the Muslims as well, isn't it? So?
Both are a test for one another? Now you have to look at the situation from the other person's perspective as well.
Many times what happens? We only think about ourselves, why are they commenting on what I'm doing? Why don't they just go away? Why don't they just be quiet? Why don't they mind their own business? But if we look at it from their side, She's your mother.
She may be your mother in law. you're cooking before her. She has cooked more than you. She knows about these things more than you. If you're doing something that does not make sense to her. Obviously, she's going to correct you,
isn't it? obviously she's going to correct you look at it from her perspective as well. If you want her to be quiet and go away, think about it. Who is she going to talk to? Who is he going to talk to
if you want somebody to wake up at a particular time, think about it. They slept late because they were working late. You want them to be up and you want them to stay awake without realizing that they have had a very difficult day. You were at home you were enjoying and they were at work.
So we have to see that where other people are a test for us. We at the same time are a test for them as well. Where we are suffering because of other people. Other people may be suffering because of us.
Were we are facing challenges because of other people. They're facing challenges because of us. So what do we need to do sub self control, overlook the faults of other people ignore them, because if we don't ignore them, we'll be able to nothing in life. We won't be able to accomplish anything.
And we see that a person's own children are called a fitna, in Nima and wailuku will lead to conflict now your children are affected. What happens when people don't have children? They're being tested. They want children. Once they have children. Again, they're being tested. They don't want to change diapers. They don't want to feed the children. They don't want to wipe their nose. They don't want to drive them to their school. They say it's too much work. They want to walk away from everything. Every person is a fitna for you to the point that even your spouse is a fitna.
In 2014, we learned Yeah, you're letting me know in the mean as well as you can what oladipo I do welcome for the room. That Oh believers, from among your spouses and your children are those who were enemies to you.
From among those who are very close to you, your own spouses, your own children, there could be enemies. What do you have to do? cut off from them. Do my hair to go away from here know what in theraflu? What else for who? What don't feel for in the love of Odin Rahim that if you pardon them, if you overlook their mistakes and you forgive them, then allies Forgiving and Merciful.
When do other people become enemies for us? That when because of them we do something wrong. Because of them we say something wrong.
Because of them we go against the commands that Allah subhanaw taala has given
like, for example, your own children, they are making you lose your patience. They're making you so upset that you lose your patience. What happens
You begin yelling at them, you begin shouting at them, it's possible that you physically abused them.
Now, you're doing something wrong. Why? Because of them,
they have angered you, they have upset you they've made you lose your patience as a result of that you're doing something wrong. Similarly, your spouse, your husband, you don't get along with him, you're very angry at what he said, what he did. So what happens? You tell him something very, very harsh, very, very offensive.
Now, because of him, you have said something very harsh, you understand. So because people become a test for us, we end up going against the commands of Allah,
we have to look faster people, we have to think this is a test for me.
She is a test for me, he is a test for me. This thing is a test for me.
We have to look past people, we have to realize that this is a test, don't look at the person. Don't look at the person. Think about it. This is a test that I have been put in. What should I do?
Be conscious, analyze the situation, and how you deal with the situation. forgive the person, ignore the person over know what he's doing over and look what he's saying. Because this is what life is about.
Will you be patient or not? What cannot become a zero. And the Lord is ever seeing Why is this being said over here. Because this is what will enable a person to be patient
that my lord is watching. I cannot do anything wrong. No matter how much they've hurt me, no matter how much they've upset me. I cannot say anything that my Lord would not be happy with. I cannot do anything that Allah would be upset with. I cannot go against the laws of Allah, we cannot book of a serum.
And if you remember that Allah has seen the injustice of the wrongdoer. And he will give the Recompense. And if I do suffer, Allah would reward me, this will enable the person to suffer. And if a person does not remember that Ally's watching me, then he will fail the test.
In certain situations, communication does help, that you want something different, the other person wants something different. And if you communicate with them, if you discuss the issue with them, you come to a solution. That's very good. But sometimes what happens? Even that does not work, isn't it in real life? Practically, many times it happens, you talk to someone, you explain your problem to them, they will not understand.
you communicate, you discuss what should be done. But there are some people who are not even willing to communicate, who are not even willing to understand who are not even willing to listen, then at that moment, what are you supposed to do? get furious inside, get very, very angry inside. And you know how we say that, you know, there's a limit to which a person can do suffer, and then what happens they blow up, then they're not doing something.
They're not forgiving. Because forgiving means what? You forget about what happened. You Leave it, leave it in the past, don't hold on to it. If you're holding on to it, you have not forgiven them. If you remember all those conversations and all those incidents, you have not forgiven them, you have not overlooked what they have done to you. And when you have not done that you will not be able to submit
submit is only possible when you have forgiven the other person when you have overlooked their mistakes. When you have overlooked their injustice is against you. So communication is necessary. But in certain situations, it does not work. Like for example a child infant crying, crying, crying is colic. What are you going to do? Tell him you should not cry so much. I'm here I'm listening to you know her how much you tell him. He's not going to understand. What do you need to do? get angry at your husband? Is that going to work? No. get angry at your mother in law? No, she cannot do anything. He cannot do anything. You have to do something and deal with the situation. And remember,
this life is a test. This baby is a test for me. What's your viral documentary building fitness and it doesn't belong? What kind of a book of a thriller. My lord is watching me this child is in a manner with me. I cannot do with him with injustice.
So, if you look at it, if you analyze your life, if you analyze your relationship with any person, whether she is a friend, or he is a husband, or he is a brother, or she is a mother in law, or she is a daughter in law, or they are your neighbors, any relationship that you have with any person, they are a test for you. They are a test free. It could be a teacher could be someone who you see every day. You don't get along with them. You don't like them. Just remember their test
and what you need to do
a las panatela asks us
what Canada bukoba Canada bukoba this is like a threat, a warning, your Lord is watching you, are you doing something or not?
And remember that Hadees that Allah subhanaw taala says, I am testing you, and I'm testing other people through you. Where you feel that other person is a challenge for you, you are also a challenge for them.
We're using that they're desperately you are also a test for them, they're creating difficulties for you, you're creating difficulties for them.
Because typically what happens like for example, if a girl gets married, she says, My mother in law, I can just not deal with her. I cannot accept her, I just cannot get along with her. Remember that even she is suffering from the same problem. Look at her from her perspective as well.
And just to suffer, overlook, keep overlooking.
And this is a major, a major principle of life. So what do we see in this ayah, three things are being said that, first of all, people are fitting for one another. And secondly, the believer should be patient, because obviously, the machine they were not going to do sufficient, who has to do something the believers have to do so you could be a situation where the other person does not do suffer, they blow up, they do whatever they want, you are the only one who can do something.
Now remember, that Allah subhanaw taala has said to every person at noon, you should not be concerned about whether they're doing something or not be concerned about yourself. The believer should be patient. And thirdly, that Allah subhanaw taala is seeing and he will reward each one with the reward that he deserves. And if we apply this principle in our life, then this will solve many, many problems, many problems. Now, especially when a person becomes serious about the what happens. He faces many challenges, a lot of criticism from those who were so close to you. What do you want to do?
argue with them? What do you want to do run away from them? cut off from them. There are people who literally go to the extent of investment does not let me do my job. He does not cooperate with me. I'm thinking of taking divorce. This is what people do. This is what people think sometimes. Is that the solution cutting off from people, is that a solution? No, you don't get along with your brother. You say I'm not going to talk to him. Is that a solution? No. It's not a solution. The solution is in such a dusty road, what kind of a book?
The thing is we have to accept that life is difficult.
Life is difficult. It's not easy. And when life is difficult, then you need to learn how to survive and How will you do that?
dunia is not for us to enjoy and have fun. It's for a test. And the only way of going through this test is such.
Let's listen to the recitation.

assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.
