So number 196 surah two number is number one to 26.
And number, what does that mean?
you know why this is called a number? Why? The story of a man or his son with the answers mentioned, almost towards the beginning of the surah. So, inshallah we'll study that today.
So the number is a murky solar, and the solar was revealed after sort of the Sherlock and remember that the murky era is full of opposition. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well as the believers are facing a lot of opposition from the disbelievers. So many of them are key sources. They mentioned stories, stories of the prophets, the people of the past, why? Because there are many lessons to be learned from their stories. And there's also great inspiration in them. So, in this solar We will also learn many stories amongst them being obviously the story of Musa alayhis salaam, again, as well as a story of Solomon or Lisa
and mozzarella Salaam, his story, his incident is mentioned many many times in the Quran, because he is one of those prophets who faced great opposition.
He faced a great tyrant he had to deal with fear own and then he had to deal with the money is slow. So there are many many lessons that can be learned from the story of Masada Center.
This aura it has 93 verses
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim forseen Hello Katara Tilda is an, these are the verses of the Quran wakita have been moving and a clear book.
Meaning these verses these ayat that you're about to read that you're about to listen, what are they? They are the earth of an urn. They are not I out of an ordinary book, an ordinary speech, but rather these are the Ayat of Allah.
And alkaline, as you know is from powerful Hamza. Para literally means to read, and others say that it's from the root letters of noon and foreign What does it mean to join together? So the Quran Why is it called Quran because it is first of all mcru it is to be recited it is to be read. And it's not to be recited only once but we're supposed to recite it five times a day in our solar minimum minimum.
So, what is called Quran because it is to be recited a lot. And it is also called Quran if you take the route to be codon call for noon, because nh altruists, wisdom, great lessons are all joined together. And the style of the Quran is also in perfect order. It's imperfect coherence, all of the themes that are very well connected together.
So tilaka eto Quran these are the verses of the Quran. And they're also verses of what wakita b mu B and A clear book.
Now it doesn't mean that the Quran is different and GitHub imobile are different.
What does it mean by this well over here while over here is off description meaning these I add are of the Quran and these I add are of the book which is clear.
So kitabi mubin further describes the Quran
Why is often called kita What does that mean? That which is written Mach two. So, if you look at it on its first of all mcru, meaning that which is read that which is recited, and secondly, it is also keytab, mini Mach two. So, imagine a book that is recited a lot, and that is also written. This is a very unique characteristic. Because many times books that are written they're not read that often. I'm sure you have many books, you read them once or twice. Maybe they were a good read, but that's it. How many more times will you read it? Not many, but the Quran is such that you have to read it every single day.
So it's moku and it's also mark tube, it's also written.
Others have said that kitabi mobian over here, it refers to the low Houma fools the preserve tablet,
because the Quran where is it originally? It is in the low hurt muffles
so these is our from where from kitabi movie. What's the objective of saying this right at the beginning of the story.
That the IR that you're about to read, they're not ordinary statements. They're not ordinary sentences, but rather, they're very special. They're from the Quran. They're from kitabi. moonbeam. And this book on what is it? It is hidden. It is a guide. Well, Bushra and also good news for who? Lil momineen for the believers. This Quran is who then
who then literally means guidance. And in the context, we give it the meaning of a guide. But literally, who then is Muslim? It's not isn't very, isn't very less heady. And who then is what? Who then is Muslim?
And why is the Muslim use from Obama?
That who then it is a guide, it is a great guide, a guidance, a complete guidance.
What Bushra and a good news for who? Lil momineen for those who believe in this book.
So what can we learn from this? That the only people who can gain benefit from this call on who can actually find guidance in the Quran?
who receive the good news that is mentioned in the Quran? Who are those people?
Those who believe Eman is the first characteristic that is necessary that is needed in order to benefit from this book.
And if a person lacks this characteristic, then he will not be able to benefit from this book.
So the first thing that is needed is a man who then will Bushra Neil McNeely. And if you look at it, who then what is it? What is guidance? What does it mean?
instruction, think about it what is guidance, instruction as to what to do, how to do when to do.
Who then guidance is that word shows you the way it tells you the way as to what you should do, how you should do. It helps you differentiate between what is right and what is wrong. That is what Gouda is, it leads you to your destination. Because remember, he Daya is not just about telling the way is not just about showing the way.
But it's about leading through out the way until the person reaches a destination.
So you were at point A, you were shown this is how we get to point B. And you weren't just shown you were directed throughout the trip throughout the journey.
And when you got there, then the Hideo was complete.
You understand this is what he Daya is, this is what who that is.
So basically he that is not just about knowing what to do. It's about transformation. It's about getting from point A to point B.
It's about changing your way according to what you have learned.
So who will change his ways when he learns what is in the Quran? Who will do that? The one who believes
who will put the Quran in practice, the one who believes whose lifestyle will change, whose outlook on life will change, whose way of talking way of thinking, eating, behaving with others doing his work is going to change
the one who believes
so the more he man a person has, the more benefit he's going to receive from this book.
The stronger the man, the greater the transformation. Remember that
the stronger the man a person has in the Quran, the greater his actions, his behavior is going to transform.
So who then will bushwa little mini intro to Toba I 124 we learn for MLA Dena ermanno for the day debt from imminent or homea steps Sharon that has for those people who have believed when they listen to the Quran, what happens to them, it increase them in faith.
It increases them in their Eman and they rejoice they become happy because they have come to know one more thing. Several new things that they can do in order to come closer to Allah and such people are in the mercy of Allah.
We learn in sort of to Nyssa I 175 that firm alladhina amanu BelAir he work doesn't will be first Are you the Hello home for your mighty men who were fumbling Wei de la slaughter, Mr. keema
that those people who believe in Allah and hold fast to him
Then he will admit them to His mercy from himself and bounty and He will guide them on a straight path. He will guide them on a straight path who
those people who believe and hold on to Allah, who hold fast to a loss.
So who are the believers? What is the practical demonstration of even? How does a person know how much a man he has, so that he can figure out if he can actually benefit from the Quran or not?
So what are those qualities that a person must have along with a man that enable him to benefit from the guidance that is in the Quran?
There mentioned the following is
that Allah Vina Yuki Muna salata, those people who establish the salah, reading groupraise Salah, as it should be prayed
earlier we learned instead of the sharada that Allah de aloka Hina Taku The one who sees you while you stand in prayer.
So when a person has this feeling that Allah is watching me when I'm praying,
he's watching me he is observing me very very carefully, then automatically what's going to happen? His Salah is going to improve it's going to become better it's going to be as it should be.
So Allah Deena up Mona salata, what are you doing as a data and they also give this okay?
What is the God, mandatory charity.
Remember that there are two types of charity, one is soda, and the other is the cat. The cat is only mandatory on certain people who, who have a certain amount of wealth for a certain period of time, and they're supposed to give part of their wealth to certain people,
but Southern Africa, any person can give it, whether he is wealthy, or he is four, or he is under debt, or he is very, very hungry, no matter what state a person is, in, he can give
and he will be rewarded for it.
So what you do as a character, and they give this a cat, well, whom will hate it, and they in the hereafter whom you can whom they believe with certainty.
If you notice, whom is mentioned twice over here, well whom bill karate whom you opinion, whom is lovely, but what kind of limit is this limited fossil, because it has come separately, it has not joined with any other word.
And Lumia fossil is for several reasons. Sometimes it gives the meaning of if the sauce for specification. And over here, it gives that meaning that it is only such people who in the hereafter they believe with conviction.
Because when a person prays Salah as he should be praying. And when a person gives a cat, then what is the show
that he believes in the hereafter with conviction? Otherwise, what is the driving force that's going to make a person pray five times a day properly? Think about it. Take a break from his work, stop his work, get up and pray. Despite going against his desires, he's getting up to pray in the middle of the night or early in the morning, when it's called when he's very tired. He's still getting up to pray, what is the drive? What is the motivation behind that?
It's the certainty in the hereafter.
So we're home Bill herati homeo Kenan, it gives a meaning of if the sauce that it is only such people.
So what do we learn in these ayah that in order to benefit from the Quran, in order to receive guidance from the Quran in order to be able to implement the Quran practically.
And in order to be deserving of the good news that Allah has given in the Quran? What must a person do? What should a person do practically? In this ayah? What do we learn
that first of all, a person must pray properly fulfilling all of the conditions and all of the bitters of soda.
And secondly, a person must be careful about giving. So
if you look at its laid out, what does it represent? What does it represent? the rights of
Allah subhanaw taala and so that what does that represent? the rights of people. So in order to be able to implement the Quran in order to be the recipient of the good news that is given in the Quran, what does a person need to do? Give the help of Allah give the help of people.
And also one more important thing belief in the hereafter with conviction.
And remember that belief in the hereafter includes belief in what?
The life of Versa because remember the hereafter
begins from death onwards.
So begins from where
death onwards. So it includes life in the bursa. It includes resurrection, it includes reward and punishment. It includes his app. It includes the me Zahn, the scales, it includes everything that we have been informed about, of the hereafter.
So while home will fit whom you can own, and when a person has this conviction, that when I die, I'm not just going to terminate, no, there's going to be a life of Bursa.
And when I die, eventually I'm going to be resurrected. When I die, I'm going to be held accountable for what I have said for what I have done, when a person has this conviction, then he remains steadfast on the path of righteousness, then he is concerned about learning what Allah has said, what Allah has taught, then he's concerned about fully understanding and implementing the Quran.
Why? Because he's worried he's worried about his hereafter. He's concerned about his eternity, he's afraid of the punishment of the grave. He's afraid of being held accountable. This is why he will look at every instruction that is given in the Quran with a lot of care. And he will be very, very careful in implementing that.
On the other hand, in the Latina law, you will indeed those people who do not believe in the year after the exact opposite people are being mentioned now.
What is their state
zanella home armella home, we have made their deeds pleasing to them. Our mind is a Florida armor.
So their deeds we have made them pleasing, we have made them very beautiful for them. They are never they you know, they Yeah, known Xena.
So their deeds appear to be very beautiful to them. And as a result, for whom, er mahone. So they wander blindly.
Now what does it mean by their deeds are adorned for them, their deeds are beautified for them, that their deeds, they seem to be very, very attractive, very good to them. They think that what they're doing is very cool. They think that what they're doing is perfect, there's absolutely no fault in it. There's nothing wrong in it, they think that what they're doing is the right thing to do. And if you do anything contrary to that, it's very foolish.
So whatever they do, it seems perfect to them, it seems very beautiful to them. They're attracted to those deeds, and they consider them very, very good for him er mahone. And as a result, they're wandering blindly, they have no idea as to where they're headed to where they're going.
Now, over here, we see that on one hand, Allah subhanaw taala mentions those people who believe in the hereafter with conviction,
that it is such people who benefit from the book. And on the other hand, those people who do not believe in the hereafter they are mentioned,
and what is their state, that they are so consumed by their actions, by whatever they're busy in, that they think that is everything.
And as a result, they're not concerned about what Allah has said, they're not concerned about the guidance that Allah has sent know for whom er mahone they're wandering blindly.
Now, what type of deeds is it that these people do, which they find very attractive, which they find very beautiful, our Manor home, what are minor these,
these are mile can refer to their evil deeds, all those deeds that they commit in disobedience to Allah, contradicting the commandments that Allah has given. So it can refer to their evil deeds, that they consider them as good. Like, for example, think about it, a person is doing something wrong, but he thinks it's actually very good. Think about it.
Like, for example, the people of NACA, they would worship idols and they would think that was the best thing to do. Yes.
Innovation innovations AI, for example, a person is not really following something of a theme, but he thinks what he's doing is very, very good. Practically Think about it. What people really do is
like, for example, a person is dressed very inappropriately, and he thinks that he or she thinks that the way she's dressed up is very, very good. And she really admires herself for dressing up that way. What else?
In particular, we're talking about evil deeds, right? acts of disobedience. But remember that their deeds does not only refer to the evil deeds, but also the good deeds that they may be doing, or the normal deeds that they may be doing because remember their deeds that are sinful deeds that are rewarded for and their deeds that are mobile
Meaning, it's okay, you don't get a sin for that you don't get any good deed for that.
So like, for example, a person is just completely occupied with their house, or with themselves. So all the time they're spending doing what maintaining their house looking after their house looking after themselves. And they think what they're doing is very good is a nano.
Like, for example, a person has bought something on how long it's taken alone and river and he thinks it's a very good deal that he got, what else
telling other people to do good but not doing good themselves.
So the yen at home alone,
that those people would not believe in the Hereafter, who do not have this conviction in the hereafter. They think that whatever deeds they're doing, whether they're evil, or they're good, they think that they're perfect. They think that they're very beautiful.
And when a person thinks that what he's doing is perfect, what he's doing is very good. Will he even consider improving himself? No.
Will he even consider looking into other options, other better options? No. Because he thinks what he's doing is right, he doesn't need to do anything else.
zanella home armona home.
So as a result, for whom he or mahone they're wandering blindly, aimlessly in life.
So what do we see over here, that a person who believes in the hereafter and a person who does not believe in the Hereafter, completely do opposite personalities, completely opposite people,
that a person who believes in the hereafter he lives with a purpose in his life,
he lives with a particular aim. And what is that aim that he is a healer oriented, His goal is the alpha, he wants success where in the Hereafter, and because he wants to be successful over there, whatever he does, whatever action he performs, he molds that, according to that purpose, he molds that according to how it will benefit him in the hereafter.
So any action he does, he analyzes it first in the light of the Hereafter, is it beneficial? Is it harmful?
And the actions of this person who believes in the hereafter with conviction, it includes all types of actions,
that whether you're doing some worldly chore, or he is performing some religious ritual, what is he concerned about? Is it going to benefit me there? Or is it not going to benefit me there
isn't going to be harmful is going to be beneficial.
And this is why this person is concerned about his Salah is the cat, because the driving force is what the certainty in the hereafter.
And on the other hand, a person who does not believe in the hereafter what is the state,
he's lost in this dunya he is consumed in the luxuries in the prosperity of this life. And he thinks that there's no better work than what he is doing.
Because the yen Allah home armello he thinks what he's doing is the best, what he's doing is perfect. And there is no other thing that can be done better than what he is doing.
Like we learned the other yesterday about the points that are known frequently when he when they're going about roving around roaming around in every Valley aimlessly, and the people who follow them along have nothing better to do in life. These are the people who follow the points. These are the people who listen to such things, people who have no purpose in life.
And they think that what they're doing is the best. They think that their actions are the most perfect ones, which is why praying in their eyes is a waste of time.
Which is why giving the path is what a waste of money.
giving charity is what a waste of money.
Not taking home loans is what wasting a great opportunity. You understand that when a person does not believe in the year after he thinks whatever he is doing in this dunya is the best. There's nothing better than what he is doing.
So he becomes very proud about his actions. And he looks down on those people who are not aiming for dunya as well.
So it's quite possible that you're talking to someone and you're telling them about what you're doing. And they say you're wasting your time. You're not making any money. It's not going to help you make any more money. instead you're spending money you're spending so much time, your youth the prime of your life. You could spend this time doing something else making more money. So they look good.
Down on those people who are praying for the Hereafter,
for whom er mahone they're wandering blindly aimlessly. Because for them, this dunya is everything. But for the one who believes in the Hereafter, the Hereafter is everything for him.
Allah He can lead in. It is those people who love him sooner rather, those are the ones for whom they will be worst of punishment. Who,
those who do not believe in the Hereafter, and who think that what they're doing is best for them is what sooner or that evil punishment the worst of punishment were in this dunya and also in the hereafter.
Well whom fill out irati and they in the hereafter who will also they're the greatest losers in the hereafter they will be the greatest losers notice it's not hos it, what is it? XL because I have argued definitely the one who suffers the most loss.
The one who suffers the greatest loss, no one else will suffer more than them.
Why? Because they will have lost all of their deeds, whatever they did in the dunya is not going to benefit them at all.
And all that they have in the record is what deeds that are against them
We don't instead have to have I 103 to 104 they're all held none of the outcome will have surina Armada Shall we tell you about those people who are worst when it comes to actions? And levena Birla sir your home for hire to dounia those people whose effort has been lost where in this dunya homie esta buena, unknown, your sooner sooner, and they think that what they're doing is very good. When they die, their deeds die. And in the dunya, they're so occupied with their deeds that they think what they're doing is the very best.
So for example, if a person's goal is just dunya, what is he concerned about? Studying so that he can make more money working so that he can make more money. And when he's making the money, enjoying that money? This is all that he's concerned about. Now, all his life, the effort that he's been putting in, what good is it going to bring to him when he dies? What good is it going to bring to him? Nothing. This is why our own greatest losers. Look at all the effort they put in and look at what they're going to reap in the hereafter. Nothing. This is why they're an absolute, greatest losers.
So what do these if teaches that for a person to be truly successful, truly successful, he needs to aim for what success in the hereafter?
Because no matter how successful a person may be in worldly terms, if in the Hereafter, he's a loser, then what is he an acts of greatest loser.
And if a person is not really that successful in lunia, but he is successful in the Hereafter, then who is he
successful from observing her and you know, what other he'll janitor pocket affairs. Such a person is truly successful.
So we all need to analyze ourselves over here. Every person has certain goals in his or her life. I want to achieve this. I want to become this. I want to study this. I want to work over here. Why? What's the objective? What's the purpose? And what's the result? What's the outcome? Is it just something that's going to temporarily benefit me in this dunya? Or is it something that's going to aid me become successful in the hereafter? Think about it. Because as young people sometimes we just do whatever everybody else is doing. We'll go to college because everybody else is going to want to work because everybody else is doing that. And we don't realize why we are doing what we're doing.
So every action we have to be very careful about is it going to help me be successful in the Hereafter, or is it just something that's going to bring the benefit into donia
we need to be very, very careful.
