In lemon Salama, except for the one who has done wrong,
meaning the messengers don't fear near me. But as for the one who has done wrong, who has committed some injustice, some other delay, then he changed her snin a good bar the suing after evil, meaning he replaced his evil With what? With a good deed, he followed his bad deed With what? With a good deed,
for in need of food over him, then indeed, I am most forgiving, and most merciful.
Why is this that all of a sudden,
that is connected with the last part of the previous ayah, that the messenger should not be afraid near me, but the one who has done something wrong, who is guilty, he would be afraid, but the one who has done something wrong, and he did though, but he turned to Allah, he changed his actions, the name forgiving and merciful to such a person does not need to be afraid.
Now, why is this being said all of a sudden,
remember that this statement in directly musar Listen, I was being told something.
You see when a person is given a huge blessing, especially something of the dean, what is he remember all of a sudden
his previous mistakes, his sins, his faults, his deficiencies, they come to his mind immediately. Isn't it? So?
Like, for example, when people are told or you have studied this much of the Quran, they know in their heart, how much they've truly given the how can how much they haven't, isn't it? Always with a sense of accomplishment? There's a feeling of guilt,
Because we are human beings, we're not perfect. No matter what we do, no matter how hard we try, there's always something that could have been done that we didn't do. Why we are human beings.
So at this time, instead of feeling guilty, because when a person feels guilty, then what happens he's not able to receive the blessing fully is not able to appreciate it. He's not able to thank Allah for it fully. Musa Islam is indirectly being told that Yes, okay. You did kill the Coptic. However, you sought forgiveness from Allah. He said probably fairly for awful Allah wa sallam said, Oh my Lord, forgive me, Allah forgive him. He turned to Allah seeking forgiveness. And then he followed the bad deed with a good one. What was that then when he went to Medina, he helped out to strange women who really needed help. And then he promised her father that he was going to work for
him for 10 years. And he did that.
So he followed the bad with the good. So Allah subhanaw taala says, I am a fool and I am Rahim.
So indirectly musasa has been told you do not need to fear.
Yes, okay. You made a mistake in the past, but it was not intentional. And on top of that, you changed your ways.
We learn into the law 82 there were in need of a federal lemon tabber What am I gonna mean? asylee had some data. But indeed I am the Perpetual Forgiver of women repents and believes and does righteousness and then continues and guidance.
Allah is perpetually forgiving towards him.
In sort of Nyssa I 110 we learn, well, my Yarmouth zoo, and oh, yes, Lim nafsa. Who, so Maya Stephanie, let her yejide let her follow Mahima that whoever does wrong or wrongs himself, but then he seeks forgiveness from Allah, then he will find Allah how Forgiving and Merciful.
So what do we learn in this ayah
that the repentance of him is accepted. If he repents with sincerity, no matter what kind of loan it may be.
Murder is not something small. Think about it. We have learned that for unintentional murder, there is punishment, isn't it? We learned about that earlier. And why because murder is not something small. But we see that once a person has done something wrong and he turns to a lie. he repents he seeks His forgiveness, that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And then we also see that Allah subhanaw taala can choose anyone for his work because he knows about each and every person.
Every person no matter who he is, he makes mistakes, because he is after all, a human being.
So just because you have done something wrong in the past, by mistake unintentionally, does not mean that you should deprive yourself of good in the future if Allah offers it to you.
Do you understand? Because sometimes people have just made up their mind. I am bad. I
I'm evil. I'm not good. I don't deserve anything good. And this is why no matter what comes to me, I'm not worthy of it. I'm not deserving of it. But this is not right. Every person makes mistakes. And Allah can forgive. And if something has happened in the past, okay, you seek forgiveness you keep seeking forgiveness. But when Allah offers something good, accept it.
Just because you did something bad in the past does not mean you have become completely evil for the rest of your life. No, the door of Toba is open.
What I do here data and put your hand enter your hand feed a beaker in the opening of your garment. J was from the roof letters, Jimmy Abba, and it's used for the opening of the garment which is at the top.
So enter your hand in the opening of the garment. And what's going to happen why you thought it will come out as white men ladies suit from other than evil, meaning it will not be white, out of some illness out of leprosy, out of some disease, or when it's white when it's bright and radiant, it's not that your hand is on fire. It's not that you will have a burning sensation no miscellanea so without any danger without any harm without any disease.
feat history I think these are among the nine signs. Fi this theory is what does it mean that these two signs that you have been given there amongst the nine signs that you're going to be given in total with which you will be sent to who elevator owner will call me to fit around and his people.
So masala salami was given how many miracles, nine miracles and these two that he was given were the first of them, and the rest of them came later.
And we learn in sort of 19 that will occur the Athena Moosa, this are at in Burkina we gave Musa nine signs that were clear, and he was sent with them to who he left, our owner will call me why because in the home Ken Coleman philosophy indeed there are people who are fascinating and who are sinful.
So what happened when musar Listen, I went there with these miracles for them at home a tuna, but when they came to them, our I add our science to fit our own and his people. And these I add were much smaller ones that were visible, clearly visible science, tangible signs, moves around from bus. And mobile zero is one that gives visibility, an eye opener.
So these I add were like eye openers.
They really illuminated the truth. They illuminated the right way. They were clear they were playing to see what happened. And
they said this is clear magic. Amazing
that these miracles were clearly miracle there were eye openers, that the magicians also they accepted their defeat. They believe in musala Santa, but still what was the reaction of his own and his mela. They said this is magic.
What it for their own say at that moment, when the magicians were defeated. He said that he is your teacher. He is one who has taught you magic. This is all a plan. This is all a scheme.
So he said this is magic. Despite the fact that the IRS were clear
what you had to be here, and they rejected them. jado Jim her that.
And jihadis do deny something that a person believes in the heart.
How? What does it mean by that?
Something that you know is true. You accept it in your heart, you know it's true, but still you denied.
What's the reason behind that? arrogance, right?
Like, for example, a person may come to realize it's his fault. But because he said earlier No, no, I didn't do it. And then halfway through the conversation, you figure that Oh, it was actually because of me. But because he said I didn't do it first. This is why he continues to say no, no, it's not my fault. This is what
it is to deliberately deny something.
So what do they deny they refuse to believe in the science.
Whereas was the pinata and foster home whereas their inner selves were convinced of it
is to connect her is taken away from the roof every year Corfu Yaki, what is your claiming certainty
and his take on a verb from Bob is difficult stay ikana is still con is to develop your key in something.
It is to develop conviction in something how over time, by experience.
Like for example, you are told from a very young age
Your mother loves you.
But how do you develop certainty in that fact, over time, when you're going through a problem, who helps you when you're sick, who helps you? When you're hungry, who brings you food, when you want to takes you shopping, when you want to ride who drops you, when you want help? who helps you, mother? So over time with your experience as you grow older, when you get married, Who's crying your mother? Who do you miss most your mother, when you have your children, who helps you most your mother?
So over time, with experience, what certainty do you develop, that your mother really loves you that your mother is very sincerity?
Many times children, they do not understand it. They say Oh, yeah, everybody says that. But I know she doesn't love me. She doesn't let me go here. She doesn't let me do this. She has so many rules for me.
But what happens as people grow older,
they develop this up, isn't it? So his take on it is to develop certainty over time by experience.
So at the beginning for our own new musala ceram is true.
But what happened he refused to believe. But with every incident, the incident with the magician's. Then, all those times when the various punishments were sent upon the people of their own, and they went to musala sentiment, they asked, pray for us, we will believe in you. And the punishment was removed. The problem was removed, the calamity was removed.
So with every incident, what happened there yaqeen it increased their yaqeen it increased, they grew in their certainty that musallam was really true. They should listen to him they should obey Him,
was the connector and foster home. They believed in conviction in all of those signs over time, their certainty group. But still What happened? They rejected
what Joe had to be here was the monitor and foster home. Why? What was the reason? Two reasons are given over here. One man out of injustice. We're a little one and out of arrogance out of pride. What this will mean and justice, whether sheffy lady Mahalia to play something where it does not belong.
And what does love mean?
that a person thinks very highly of himself. He thinks very great of himself, and he cannot tolerate anything that comes in his way.
Anyone who disrespects him in any way. Anyone who looks down on him, he does not tolerate it. This is what our Louis betterhelp Antunez. So because of zoom, and because of earloop, they denied the truth funds. So Allah says, look, k for can occupy term of city, how is the outcome of the Mischief Makers?
So who is
the one who commits injustice? And the one who is arrogant?
The one who does work? And has
we learned in silicon what we known about the people of our own in it number four, he says that for stackable wakanow, common Eileen, they were arrogant, and they were a hottie people.
They were common Island, they thought very highly of themselves.
So what do we learn in this ayah?
Something very, very important that when the truth is clear to a person, when a person knows what he should be doing, it's become plain and evident to him. It's become crystal clear to him. This is what I should do. This is what I should not do.
But still, what is it that prevents him? What is it that stops him?
You know, when a person is told about something, and he still doesn't do it? What do you think? You give them the benefit of the doubt? Maybe they didn't understand? You give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe they didn't understand. But when something is spelled out very clearly, and the other person has understood. But still he does not do what he's supposed to do.
Then what is it that prevents him from doing it?
These two things live and
die, for example, you tell something to children, little children, you give them the instructions five times 10 times you tell them very clearly, but still they don't do it. What do you say? Their children? They're forgetful, maybe they didn't understand.
But when adults when they're told about certain rules, they're clearly informed. They're put up on the walls. They're verbally told. They're reminded many, many times. But still, if a person does not do it, then it's not that he doesn't get it. There's something else. It's loaded, and it's a loop.
If you look at what does it mean?
It has to deprive the other person over
Right, isn't it?
Now why would a person want to deprive others of their rights when he wants everything? For who?
for himself? He's only concerned about his own benefits.
Because if you think about it, every person has certain rights.
But when a person becomes selfish, when a person wants every good for himself, then what does it lead to? injustice it leads to.
So he knows what should be done, what should not be done, but he wants all the good for himself.
So as a result, what does he end up doing?
He's not concerned about others, he's only concerned about himself. This is why he will not care about what is to be done, what is not to be done.
And the second reason, or the one What does love mean?
arrogance heartiness, that a person thinks himself very great, and he does not tolerate anything that comes in the way of his greatness.
Now, if you look at it, earlier into the Sherlock, what did we learn that the people of Makkah, they knew what the truth was? But still they refused to accept what was the reason?
What was the reason?
arrogance, as well as stubbornness.
And over here we learn about one more reason, along with arrogance along with Urdu What do we learn?
When a person becomes stubborn, when a person does lumen others, he's only concerned about his own benefits. And a person is arrogant, then he does not do what he's supposed to do. Rather, he follows his desires.
Now, if you look at it, when a messenger comes to a nation, when a messenger comes to people, he has two main responsibilities.
And what are they?
First of all, to establish the the hate of them?
If you look at all of the messengers, they gave this message, isn't it?
To establish the oneness of Allah that Allah is the Greatest.
And secondly, to put an end to injustice, no matter what form of injustice, it may be, whether it is in the form of depriving women of their rights, or it is in the form of cheating one another when it comes to business? Or is in the form of enslaving people? Whatever form of injustice, it is, the messenger comes to put an end to that injustice. These are the two main goals of the messenger.
Now those people who are arrogant, who want that they should be in the limelight all the time.
And they want that they should be looked up to everybody should respect them. Would they like the heat? No. Would they like that? There should be an end to injustice, no way.
So this is why because of loan, and because of Alou, even though the truth may be very clear to the people they do not accept.
Like, for example, for their own, though, he'd meant he was going to lose his great status. putting an end to injustice meant that he was going to have to give up his mastery, his kingship, his authority over the bunny is right here.
But if someone has a look, and if someone is selfish, would they want to give it up? No way.
So although the truth was clear to him, but because of his own personal benefits, he did not accept the truth.
If you look at it in Makkah, also, who were the opponents of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim,
it was the elite. It wasn't wealthy once it was a leaders, it was achieved. Why?
Because they knew that if they accept it, this person from Banu Hashim, the grandchildren of Abdulmutallab, then he would become superior to them.
They did not want that one family clan should become superior to others, they did not want that.
Similarly, for them, he was an orphan. This is why they did not want to accept his supremacy over them.
in Medina, who refuse to believe in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the people of the book, what was the reason over there as well?
That they felt if they believed in Him, they will lose their religious superiority.
So what prevents people from accepting the truth? What is it that leads them to denying the truth? It is injustice, desiring one's own benefit, and arrogance, desiring one's own greatness, do things desiring one's own benefit in justice, and design one's own greatness, arrogance.
And this becomes a great test for
Learn and earn a great test for a person that when he sees the truth, does he give up or not?
If you look at the wife of Aziz,
when her crime was made public, and she was proven guilty later, what did she do? She confessed. She accepted. She said, Alana has herself. She accepted she gave up. But we see that fit our own. What did he desire his own greatness? And despite the fact that all the clear signs were shown, did he accept? Did he step down? Did he give up? Not at all.
And the only thing that broke his ego was what? Death
that when he saw death approaching him, that's when he said, I believe.
So when a person has these two things are low, and desiring one's own benefit, one's own greatness, then it prevents him from accepting the truth. It really strengthens up his ego, it enlarges it, and the only thing that can break that is what
now, this was about to fit our own, is people. But we need to analyze ourselves as well. That sometimes we know what we're supposed to do. We know what the command is. And it's not that we haven't understood, no, it's been clearly spelled out in the
If we don't do it, then What's the reason? Is it that we don't understand? Who doesn't understand, no matter how clear they put on maybe? Who doesn't understand.
We learned instead of bacala, what Akela Cahoon, who is that
that they do not use their mind. And the simple things in the Quran, even they do not get them. They do not understand that something that goes against them in the hereafter in their Deen, they still don't get it.
So one thing could be that we don't understand. And the other thing could be that we understand. But we don't want to do it. We don't like to do it.
It goes against our personal benefits. It goes against our greatness. And if such is the case, then what could be the difference between a person who does this and fit our own. Because we don't have the same problem. He had the same reason it wasn't that he didn't get it, he got it. But what prevented him arrogance learn.
So similarly, we also need to check as well, because many times what happens all those actions, all those commands, which are easy, which we like to do, which conform with our lifestyle, which conform with our desires, we take them in very openly, very readily, very quickly. But anything that goes against our desires that we find difficult, we have a list of excuses for them.
But we need to realize that if we are staying away from such important things, then we are only harming ourselves, we're only deceiving ourselves
was taken at her and think about it. If you have developed your cane in something, how can you not do it that
many times it happens that when we're dealing with that's our in laws, or our family members or coworkers or people who we see every single day, it happens that we end up in an argument, and we end up being very harsh or rude towards the other person. And later on, we realized that it's our mistake, but we still don't want to accept
Because it goes against our ego.
It goes against our ego.
Despite the fact that we see whose fault it is who's mistaken is still we don't accept why it goes against our ego. But Jerry dubya was the enforcer
and sometimes it could really be the mistake of both the people. So the better one is who the one who apologizes The one who seeks forgiveness. The one who shows humility, because those who are humble
