Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim lesson number 198 similar to Number Number 45 to 59.
What are the auto sellner Ls Moodle a home slowly her and we had certainly sent to some mood, their brother slightly early his son
who are the people of some mood. The people of the mother also known as, as her will hedge the people of a hedge. And they're known as the people of hedge because they used to live in the area of unhedged.
And remember that this area unhedged is known such Why? Because it is a very rocky terrain. It's a very rocky area. Generally in the desert, what do you find? sent in rain forest areas? What do you find? Trees, a lot of vegetation, but over here in the area of unhedged, what do you find a lot of rocks and extremely Rocky Mountains? And these people, they lived in this area? And what did they do? They built their houses, they carved out their houses into Rocky Mountains. And remember that the people of the mood, they came after the people of New Zealand and after the people are right, and these people were extremely skilled. They were extremely prosperous people of their time. So do
these people. Allah subhanaw taala sent a Hong Kong their brother slowly hand slowly s&m as a messenger, as a prophet of Allah to them. Why? Because this is very common amongst people that as soon as they begin to advance in worldly terms, what happens to their religion, they begin to abandon the religion, they begin to spread a lot of mischief, a lot of corruption in the land. Because when they have a lot of power, they end up committing injustice, they want more power, and many times they attain this power hell by depriving other people of their rights. So whenever there is such corruption in the land, Allah subhanaw taala, he sends guidance to people, how before it was
in the form of prophets and messengers, and now it is in the form of Warner's or his warnings, the message that the prophet SAW The Lord said, Umbra. So at that time, Allah subhanaw taala, sent their brothers solid nslm to them. Why is he called their brother?
Why is he called their brother because he belonged to their nation, he was one of them. He belonged to their nation, and remember that he belonged to a very noble tribe. Just as a prophet sallallahu Sallam also was one of the people to whom he was sent to he was also an Arab, and Nabeel meek, and he did not just belong to any Arabian tribe, but he belonged to each tribe, the Quraysh, which was a very noble tribe, similarly, Solihull, Islam also belong to a very noble tribe of the people of sammut. And remember that he himself was also extremely intelligent and also very wise, just as a prophet sallallahu Sallam was not just someone of a very noble position, just because he belonged to
a noble tribe, but also because of his character. Also, because of his behavior, his intelligence, he was well known amongst the people. And slowly Han escena, his case was also the same.
And what was the main message that he gave to his people, a near Buddha law, that all of you should worship Allah, meaning worship, only Allah, because perhaps these people, they began doing ship, they definitely spread a lot of corruption. But along with that, their efeito was also affected. Society Hello, Sam did not just tell them to stay away from facade, but also to only worship Allah.
But then what was the reaction of the people for he there, then suddenly, all of a sudden, as soon as he said this to them, or Buddha law, immediately the reaction of the people was home, they were very corny to groups. yester Simone, they were quarreling with one another.
For you can't do a love for you, for you is a group of people, a section of people and videocon two groups. So immediately the nation was divided into two groups. How, how did that happen?
Some of them believed in him and others, they rejected him. And as a result, the nation was divided into two groups of people, one of believers and the other of this believers,
just as it happened at the time of the Prophet ceremony. There were those people who believed in him and those people who rejected him. But obviously when people are divided in this way, they
There will definitely be disputes. So yes, just remove they began quarreling with one another eflc moving from Hall saw me cos.
So they began disputing with one another with regards to what with regards to Dean with regards to the truthfulness of sila escena. The believers, they affirmed his truthfulness and the disbelievers they rejected him. So as a result, constantly, there were strife, there was dispute amongst the people.
And remember that amongst the people, it was mainly the leaders, it was mainly the elite, who rejected Sally Harrison.
We learned in sort of ad off I 75, to 76 that all men are Latina, stackable woman calm, ie, Latina, strawberry, full lemon m&m in home. The eminent ones, the mother, the leaders, the elite, those people who were very arrogant, there said to those people who were weak, and especially those people who had believed in Sally Hansen, so the leaders they said to, to the weak ones, to the weak believers, they said to them, attack Ala Moana unnecessarily Han masala saloon, Mila B. Do you really know that sila is actually a messenger from his Lord. So this shows a glimpse of the dispute that was amongst the people. It was with regards to the truthfulness of silent Edison that those
people who disbelieve constantly there were arousing doubts in the hearts of those people who have believed. How do you know? Are you sure? Do you really know that he's a messenger of Allah? What evidence do you have? What proof do you have? So are you they said in the mail Oh, syllabi, he made me known that indeed we are believers in whatever that he has been sent with.
No matter what kind of doubts you want us to have, know that we believe in him.
And then what was the reaction of the mother called Alina stackable in Villa de Ehrman to be careful on those people who were arrogant the minute they said that we disbelieve in what you believe in. So this is just a glimpse of the conflict that was in those people. And we see that in this solar incident animal so far, we have learned about first of all musar lesson. And then we learned about the story of so a minor incident and before him slightly older incident that would answer the manual is Lambert.
If you think about it, the story of the people of the moon typically, who is it mentioned with the story of which people, the people of New Zealand and the people have.
Right. And afterwards, the people have moved on, as I mentioned, which is also the case over here. Because this is actually the chronological order, isn't it? The people have no game first, and the people have art and the people have the mood.
But over here we see that the people of musasa mentioned first, then we see so they minor incident, and then we see the people of the world. What's the reason behind that? What's the main theme over here? Because we see that now, the focus is not on telling us about the chronological order of these people of the nations of the past. The theme is about something else. And what is that theme?
If you look at it, the people of Mr. Ellison,
who was the leader of that time, for their own, and who was he a great tyrant, a great disbeliever, a great oppressor.
Then we look at Sulaiman Arneson, who was still a minor incident. He was also a leader. He was also working, but what was the difference between fit our own and so a man or a salon both had power, but the difference was in him and
so we see that the one without even what did he do? And the one with a man, what did he do? Completely different ways, isn't it? And then the people have some mood or mentioned because the people have some mood. They are from Arabia, the people of musasa where were they from Egypt. The people of Sudan are listening wherever they're from Palestine, and also the queen of Saba, Yemen. And now we have a great nation of the past, from where, from Arabia. So we see that the great nations of the past those who were extremely successful in worldly terms, they are being mentioned,
that look at how powerful they were, how much worldly success they had, but who was successful at the end, finally, only those within
their own, his civilization finished. So in a manner s&m. He had a man and his nation thrived.
And we see that the
People have some mood even they were extremely successful in worldly terms. But what happened to them when they rejected, even they suffered from a great decline, and they were completely finished.
So we see that a clear comparison is being laid out before us. That the one who has a man and authority What is his outcome? And the one who does go further with authority? What is his outcome? It's completely different.
So we see over here basically, in these different nations are being compared. And the main lesson is that believe it is a means of reformation. It is a means of success. And on the other hand, gopher is a means of corruption,
that we see that for only had so much power, but because of his Cofer, what did you do with all that power, corruption
and the people of the mood also, they were also very advanced, but with all of their advancement, what did they do? corruption.
But today, mannerism, because of his Eman, and the power that he possessed, what did he do with that power? He used it to call people to Allah. How different, isn't it?
So the mannerism also had power, but what did he do? Instead of manipulating the people? Instead of oppressing the people? What did he do? He called people to Allah, a clear difference. And you see, the solar is a murky Sora. And primary, the people of Makkah, the Polish, they are being made to understand that you are also possessors of great power, authority, liability, prestige, worldly success. Now analyze yourself, what is it that you do? What is it that you do? Typically, what fear do people have that if we have power, and we turn towards religion, what's going to happen, we're going to suffer, we're going to lose everything.
But we see that with the example of Solomon or Islam, it's demonstrated that if you have a man, you don't necessarily suffer when it comes to your linear.
And on the other hand, if you have a lot of linear but you have go further than what you have done yet, you will also lose that there are many lessons that can be learned. If you put all of these nations together, you put them side by side, and you analyze them together while comparing them.
So now over here, the people of the mother be mentioned
What happened to them? They were very successful. Sally, hello, Sam told them worship Allah. But instead of believing in Him, what happened? The people they became divided into multiple groups.
Allah, he said, Sorry, he said, and he said to the people, yeah, call me all my people leave at the start of June A, B, C, or D? Why are you impatient for evil? Oberlin? Hasn't it instead of good? Why do you want evil so bad? Before you want good? Lola has the feeling aloha? Why do you not seek forgiveness from Allah lair and welcome to her moon so that you may receive mercy? Why did salahaddin sam say this to the people?
We see that sila Harrison and when he gave the message to people, he also warned them of the punishment of Allah. That if you do not believe, then be warned of the great punishment because every messenger he came as mobile as well as a nanny. So he fulfilled his responsibility of being a winner as well. And when he gave the warning to the people of the punishment, what was their reaction? We learned in total Our love is 77 that the people said yes, our only hope Dena Bhima 30, doula in contaminant more saline, that also Allah bring us what you promise us if you should be of the messengers. So in their rejection, in their pride in their incidents, what happened? They began
demanding the punishment. They said, if you really a messenger bring the punishment. Let's see what happens. So over here, the response of sila Hassan has mentioned that when they demanded the punishment, what did he say to them? He only limit us third universe, a new covenant has an old people, why do you seek to hasten punishment instead of mercy? Why are you demanding that you should be finished? And why do you not instead ask Allah for forgiveness? You should be asking for forgiveness, not punishment.
If you notice over here, the way he addresses them, yeah, call me or my people.
It's such an affectionate way of addressing people that my people you are of me and I am of you we are together. Why do you do this? Yeah, call me. Because the moment you distance yourself from those whom you are addressing, then what happens? They become hostile towards you.
They cannot relate with you anymore. And we see that musasa also constantly How did he address the people in the same way, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also how did he address the people in the same way?
Now, remember that this is, especially when a person is calling people to the religion of Allah.
Once hostility is established, like for example, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in Medina, it was after the hijra, several battles had been fought. Now, at that point, you cannot be affectionate towards such people. That's at a later stage. But we see that at the stage of Dawa at the stage of calling people to Allah, you have to be extremely affectionate and gentle in the manner that you address people. So he says, Yeah, call me live at a storage unit, the word limit is actually a combination of Li and Ma. Li meaning for man, what meaning for what reason? Do you do what?
Why is it that that's their deluna you seek to hasten? bisaya? What does it say? You refer to the punishment, that they were demanding destruction of another hazard before and has an end? What does hazard refer to? the mercy of Allah doba turning to Allah in repentance. Now, the word cover, what does it mean? What does cover me before so common is basically
it gives the meaning of love, when something is before the other in either time or in place, when something is before the other in time or in place. So basically, it is for the condom, the condom is to proceed the other to be ahead of the other.
But over here, a bill is not being used for the freedom of time, but rather it is being used for the audit of mastaba. Opposition.
So it doesn't mean over here. That why are you praying for, say before praying for has no meaning after you pray for us? And then you can pray for us a year? No, that's not what the meaning is.
The meaning over here is that why are you praying for a year, instead of praying for Hasson that you should be giving preference to what has an end instead you are giving preference to what? So here? Why are you asking for say, instead of asking for help center? What are you doing? Knowing that the stuff we don't allow her? Why do you not seek forgiveness from Allah and welcome to her own, so that you can be shown mercy?
Now we see that the draw of a person, the daughter of a person, what does it reflect
his inner feelings, his inner desire, his hope, his wishes, that's what the other person reflects, isn't it? Because typically, what does a person pray for? What does a person pray for?
What he wants?
at this conference, I had a session with little kids and I was trying to explain to them the concept of prayer, the concept of the concept of Salah they're just asking them that, what do you like, and the children are telling me about, you know, they like hot new cars, and they like Barbie dolls, and they like chocolate and like candy, and so on and so forth.
And then I said, Okay, make the deal Allah give me so all of them are praying to Allah give me and they're praying for Barbie dolls, and they're praying for cars. And, you know, they're paying for all of these things, toys. Why? Because a person prays for what? For that which he likes, that which he desires. So that the our person it reflects what is in his heart? What kind of love he has in his heart? What are his hopes? What are his aspirations?
Now these people, what are they asking for?
destruction, punishment, loss, death? Who asked for that someone was out of his mind, isn't it? Because no person who is in the right state of mind would ever asked for destruction? Even people who don't believe in God, when you go to pray before then what do they ask you to do? Pray for me, is it? They'll never go to pray themselves. But when they see you're going to pray, they will tell you pray for me. What are they asking you to do? Pray for their destruction. No, pray for my good, pray for my benefit.
So we see that a person who is not in the right state of his mind only he can ask for destruction, for death, for loss for suffering.
And these people when they were asking for punishment, they didn't really mean it. Why were they asking for punishment?
out of denial, out of rejection of the profit, out of mockery.
Are you threatening us go ahead and bring the punishment. Let's see what happens.
Now we see that the people of Makkah, they had the exact same attitude towards the Prophet satellizer exact same attitude. And what was that? That they will also ask him to bring the punishment.
We learned in sort of the knowledge I wanted to that selesa Elune beer either been worker lincare Farina Leyzaola houda
A supplicant, he asked for a punishment that is bound to happen. selesa Ilan, said Ella supplicant The one who is asking if he asked for anything What did he asked for? Or they have been welcome? He asked for other little caffeine and Leyzaola who divert to the disbelievers of it there is no preventing
instead of the large number six also we learned were started unica bc at covenant has Anna Walker, the harlot makaveli he will masuleh they impatiently urge you to bring about evil before good, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments, but have they taken a lesson Not at all.
So we see that these people also they were demanding punishment, why, just in order to make fun of the messenger.
But in reality, what is the person doing? He is harming himself, he is making a fool of himself. But look at how the Messenger of Allah responds to them. Lola has the freedom.
Why do you not seek forgiveness of Allah? Look at the work that he gives him over here as well.
You should be praying for forgiveness. And if you pray for forgiveness, Laila come to her moon, you will be shown mercy by Allah.
Allah, they said, what was the reaction of the people? When sila Hello, Sam warned them, they said, If beaker will be my marker, we consider you a bad omen, you and those who are with you,
you and those people who have believed in you, we consider all of you as as what, as a bad omen.
Now who said this, which for the accept this the failure of the disbelievers, those who rejected him.
And primarily it was
the elite, the mullet.
So they said the elite, the educated ones, the so called intellectuals of the society, they said, If by your Nabokov will be my marker, it is from the reflectors for your life. What does it mean?
and pleora is to consider something, consider an event as a sign of good luck, or bad luck
to consider something or an event, a person as a sign of good luck or bad luck. But why is it derived from the workplace?
Why is it derived from the workplace? in particular? What did the Arabs do?
that whenever the Arabs wanted to figure something out that if I do this action is going to be a source of good luck from your bad luck for me, like we do is
that we are confused. What do we do? So we make the artola. We leave it to Allah, Allah, whatever is easy, just make it happen. Make it easy for me. And remember, that is the heart It's not necessary that you have a dream. Okay?
So the Arabs, what would they do whenever they were confused about a matter, they would make a bird fly, they would catch a bird and they would make it fly. Now if the bird flew to the right, it meant if I do this, it's going to bring good luck to me.
And if the bird flew to the left, what did that mean? If I do this action, it's going to be a source of bad luck for me, so don't do it.
So this is primarily play.
But then piano was not just arrived from the flying of the birds, but also from certain people that if they are present, we will have evil. Like for example, people say that if at a wedding, there's a widow, or there's a divorcee, what's going to happen, this wedding is not going to work out. So don't call any such people to the wedding.
Or they say that if there's a dark person with a pregnant woman, then that pregnant woman is going to have a child who is very dark and color. People have such assumption, the suppositions honestly, they do. And it surprises me that what kind of world you live in, that you think that just because you are in a particular circumstance with some people, the only It's amazing. So people have such concepts and we think that this is something so backward, but unfortunately, even today, people have such concepts. So this is what era that a person or an event is considered to be a source of good luck or bad luck if this is present.
Then this will happen.
And if this is not here, then this will happen. If this occurs, then something good is gonna happen. If this does not happen, then something bad is gonna happen or so on and so forth. People have these assumptions.
So they said, if you're not bigger, we consider you to be a bad omen.
What does it mean by that?
That since you are amongst us, you are with us. Since you have started preaching, we are suffering from so many things.
Our circumstances have changed our society, it's full of conflict and strife, families, family members have turned against one another. And we are deprived of rain we are deprived of so many blessings, since you have come. So we consider you to be a bad omen. Leave so that we can go back to normal.
Now this is very true, that when a prophet of Allah delivers a message to the people and the people refuse to believe, then what happens? Allah subhanaw taala deprives those people of blessings. Why La Colonia de la lune. So that they humble themselves before Allah. Like, for example, the people of Iran What happened to them? When they rejected we learned so to Allah I 130 that what are called the 100, elevator owner Messina, one up same minute, Sam a lot. And we certainly sees the people of Iran with years of famine and deficiency in fruit deficiency in produce, they had less to eat. Similarly, we see that the people of Makkah, also they suffered from a famine.
Now, when these people when they suffered from this famine from this difficulty from some loss, who do they blame? The Messenger of Allah, that since you have started this, our life has become full of difficulties. Stop what you're doing so that we can go back to normal. So this is Carlo Vika wabi mama aka, not just you, but also those people who are with you, meaning the believers.
Now the reality is that the messengers of Allah, what do they bring to the people knowledge, guidance, enlightenment,
and in the nation, whatever wrong concepts are prevalent, whatever wrong concepts are present, the messenger comes, and he highlights them. And as a result, the people they can see the wrong and those people who are oppressed, they're able to see and they begin to demand for their rights. Like, for example, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were people who were slaves. And as slaves had absolutely no freedom, not even the freedom of religion. But when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, they became believers. And even if they were physically enslaved, they were entirely free. Now, this change, that women, they are believing and slaves, they are believing this kind of
change is not acceptable to to the leaders to the elite,
they consider this change to be a source of their downfall,
which is why you will see that even in certain villages till today, the leaders of these villages, they do not want any schools to be present over there. They do not want it the children should gain education. They do not want their women should go and learn something. Why? Because if they learn something, they'll get out of our control, isn't it? So? If they learn, and if they go to school, they go to university, what's going to happen? Who's going to work for us? Right now we don't pay them, even a cent. But if they get even a little bit of awareness, they're going to start demanding their rights from us. So what do they want, that the people should remain in darkness, and as a
result, they can illuminate them. But when the messengers of Allah they came, they brought with them enlightenment.
And as a result, the people who were oppressed, they woke up, the people who are kept in darkness, they began to see
and as a result of Mullah, they could not tolerate this anymore. They began suffering from their downfall now. So they considered the messenger to be what? A source of evil
a source of evil for them. So this is why they said if you're bigger, will be my marker, that yes, you have brought evil to the society at large, but in particular, to, to us the elite, the machine of Makkah, also, they said the same thing to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, instead of the Messiah I number 78. We learn what into slavery whom has Anatolia kulu had the human or Indian.
If some good reaches them, they say this is from Allah. What into civil him say he attorney aku had the human or index
And if some evil reaches them they say this is because of you. Since you have gone we're suffering from so many problems.
We altered our integrity I seen a number 18 that Apollo inadequate to become like a lump into who know German Nicola Seneca, Mina Devon Aleem
that they said, Indeed, we consider you a bad omen, if you do not stop, we will surely stone you, and they will surely touch you from us a painful punishment. But what do we learn? What was the reaction of the Messenger of Allah at this point? Did he give up? Did he feel embarrassed? No. Because he knew that evil and good both they come from who? from Allah soprano data. So the reaction of the Prophet was on a thought it'll come in de la sala Hello, Sam, he said that your evil Omen is from who are in the law. It's with Allah. It's not because of my presence. It's not because of these teachings that I've brought. know, whatever evil happens to you comes from who Allah says, he has
He has determined that he has allowed it to happen. He knows what is written for you. What good is written for you what evil is written for you. It's not because of my presence.
In sort of any Israel I number 30, we learn what kulu insan in uldum, now Hoopa Illa, who fear or nothing, and every person we have imposed his fate upon his neck. What does it mean by that? Anything that is written for him is definitely going to happen to him. And whatever that happens to a person is a result of what his own deeds, it's a result of his own actions. This is why the next part of the is that we'll know what to do Lahu, Yama, Tamati, keytab, and yokomen Shura, and on the Day of Judgment, we will produce for him a record which he will encounter spread open and what's in the record his deeds.
So we see that the reason why good or evil happens to a person is because first of all, Allah has allowed it. And secondly, it's because of a person's own actions.
What do we learn if you do good in our center, accidentally unfussy come when you don't follow her.
If you do good, you do good for yourselves. And if you do evil, you will suffer.
So whatever actions we do in life, there are consequences we face in the dunya. No person, no event, no thing can be a source of evil or good for others.
And if you feel that you are facing trouble because of the presence of some people, that whenever you deal with them, you end up in an argument. Whenever you see them, you begin to feel sad. It's not because there are some evil omen. No, the thing is that well and dunkleman afternoon, rather you are people who are being tested. You're being tried to afternoon from Fattah noon fitna that you are being tested. This is why your circumstances have changed yesterday, they were very good today you're going through difficulties. Why? Because ultimately this life is what it is a test.
And if you do face some difficulty coming from some people, then realize that what you're very welcome developing fitness
that we have made some of you for others as what, as a fitness, or just be alone will you be patient in total for con number 20.
So we see that any difficulty, any suffering, any change of circumstances, that a person experiences in life, in reality, what is it? It's a test? A person is being examined that how does he react? What does he do? Does he turn to Allah? Does he humble himself? Does he realize his mistake? Can he see through himself? Or is he still deceiving himself? That No, no, I'm perfectly right. And it's the fault of other people. Because we see that when the people have the mood, they were suffering from problems, why was it so it was that they would realize they should not disbelieve in their prophet
when the people of Mecca when they were suffering from the famine, Why? So that they should realize they should not oppose Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. The people have been around when they were made to go through so many trials Why? So that they should also realize the truthfulness of Messiah center.
So whenever we go through some difficulty, some problem in life, it's because Allah subhanaw taala wants us to realize something.
Now, the believer he benefits from these tests, he benefits from these difficulties, because he will look at himself, he will observe his actions, and he will worry about rectifying himself about improving himself. But on the other hand, a person who does not believe in Allah, a person who does not care about the hero
What is he going to think that these times he is going to begin to blame others? It's because of him. It's because of her. And she is a reason for all the problems in my life, she should die, she should leave, he should go, and then everything will be fine. This is not the right way. This is not the correct approach.
when ever we are going through a difficulty, what should we remember? But underemployment afternoon, we are being tested. We're being tried. So we shouldn't blame others. Rather, what should we do? look at ourselves.
Look at what we need to fix. Well, anthem, one, two for noon,
we see that one of the most difficult things for people to do is accept the decree of Allah. Because many times when we're going through some difficulty, what do we think? Why me? Why has this happened? And why is it like this. And then we tend to blame other people, that they are the reason for the problems in our life. But the fact is that we need to accept that this is what Allah subhanaw taala has sent my way. But it will come in the law, whatever has happened to you is by the decree of Allah, he has decreed it, he has decided it, and it's a result of your actions.
So at that time, we should accept and we should reflect on our behavior and our actions. And only then we can come out of those problems. We see that the believers at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they went through great difficulties as well. But what is it that made them successful? What is it that made them go through all those difficulties peacefully, well, a lot bigger, faster, because they did suffer for the sake of Allah.
And when a person does suffer over difficulties for the sake of Allah, and Allah helps him Allah assists them. Now what happened?
What can I feel Medina T. And there were in the city, which city
where these people lived, the people have moved in.
Now remember that these people this nation, it wasn't just concentrated in one area.
You will notice that the people who made these houses in Rocky Mountains have carved out their houses in rocks. They weren't just in one place. You will find their ruins today in Jordan, you will find the ruins today in in Saudi Arabia as well in the area which is known as medine Sonic.
So they were spread over several cities. It was like an entire nation that was spread over several cities.
Now Sala had s&m where was in particular, in this city, in the area of unhedged.
And this area today is known as medine silence.
And this is the area which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed by on his journey to the book. Remember, that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was going there? They saw these ruins.
There's one more city which is known as spectra. B et ra albatros. This is different from the city. However, remember that all of these people they were the same nation. They were just divided up in several cities, just like the people have their own way where they just in one city, no. They had many, many cities, which is why we see that fit around. What did he do? He sent Phil Medan in he has chalene right?
