Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim lesson number 202 Sudoku puzzles.
If you look at how these ions are connected, that first the reaction of the machine has mentioned that how, despite seeing the truth they don't accept. And then on the other hand the reaction of some of the people of the book has mentioned that when they see the truth, they recognize it and no matter how much opposition they face, they stay firm on it. You cannot force guidance in anyone that person has to desire it himself if a person desires that Allah will give it to him
and what is it that prevents a person from believing
it's different fears. Isn't it so that if I begin to follow this if I accept and I will face opposition the machine of Makkah they had the same fear
will call you and they said in letter very Luda, if we follow the guidance, Marika with you, meaning if we become Muslim just like you are Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the rest of the believers then what's going to happen to the heart of min Alina, we will be swept away from our land. We will be swept from our land we will be carried away from our land. This is what we fear. Why? Because history proves this.
Anytime a person becomes a believer Illa Mashallah. What do people face? Opposition? hostility?
We see that Lutheran Islam What did he have to face from his people? What did they say? They do a lot mencari article.
When the Muslims were in Makkah What happened? They were opposed so much that they had to leave Makkah. They had to go to avicennia they had to go to Medina. So the machine of Makkah they would say that if we become Muslim, if we renounce shake, then what will happen? Other Arabs they will rise against us.
They will oppose us.
neuter Hoffman arlena nahata from the roof address call for hot and hot is to snack something does net something quickly.
Now the hot off man arena we will be snatched from our land meaning we will be swept away from overland. We will be deprived of our land of Makkah.
We fear that we will be deported. We fear that we will be discriminated we will be deprived of this citizenship. No the hot off men are leaner.
Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh well i'm new makela Who is it? Not we did we not established for them.
Holloman I mean in a heaven, a sanctuary that is eminent that is secure. Where do they live? They fear that other people are going to come and fight against them. They fear that they will be swept away from their home then where are they living? They live in Makkah and this maka. We have established it as Holloman eminent, how long it's sacred. No one can come and cause bloodshed over there. It's eminent. It's one that is secure. Any person who lives here is secure. He is safe. No one can kill him. No one can harm him. Where do they live and what kind of fears they have?
Oh, alumna mckaela Holloman Amina and it's such a secure place that you Jabba LA is Mr ticklish a huge but it is brought in a he to add meaning to this land, some articles cliche, the fruit the produce of everything.
Huge bear from the author's Jean bow and Jebel is to collect.
What is gentlemen to collect something to amass something
it is said Jebel Melville held meaning the water is collected and gathered up were in the pond. So youtuber la he's somewhat awkwardly shaped different different fruits and vegetables, different types of produce, they are brought were to maka maka, a barren valley where nothing grows. And look, Allah subhanaw taala provides you your wrist in Mecca. You don't have to grow anything, everything comes to you. Because Makkah was like the center. It was the hub of international trade, because so many people would come over there from various parts in order to perform the pilgrimage. And when they would come, they would also bring with them, there are some of that
there is fun. Mila Donna s provision from us, well, I can accelerate home layer lamode but most of them do not know. So the mccanns they fear that if we believe we're going to suffer financial loss, we're going to suffer worldly loss. We're going to be deprived of our land. The other Arabs are going to rise against us we're going to lose our custodianship of the Kaaba right now. We're so honorable people respect us, but if we believe
No one is going to respect this anymore.
We feel that we're going to face a lot of opposition. But unless the panel data reminds them that look at the place that you live in, who gave this to you?
Who brought your food over here to you, unless upon data, who has made this place so secure, that even if a murderer is found in this city, he's not killed. Even if a criminal is found, he is not held accountable, until he leaves Makkah, this is how secure this land is. And you fear that you will be taken away from this land, you'll be swept away from this lead, how is that possible? Impossible. And if you think of it, if a law provides you here, and let's say you are evicted from this land, you think the law cannot provide you elsewhere.
Of course, he can provide you elsewhere as well.
Because your Roger is who not this land, your roses is a last parameter.
Many times we also have this fear that if we start practicing this thing, and if we implement this command, we might lose our job, we might lose this, we might lose that. But we should remember that our provider is not our job. Our provider is not our boss, our provider is not the country that we live in our provider is who are lost.
And if he can give us over here, he can give us anywhere. And the whole land is whose it belongs to a loss of Hunter. This is why he deserves to be worshipped.
So never have this fear that if I you know, start practicing this, then you know I'm going to face this opposition and I'm going to suffer this loss. No, you might suffer temporary loss. But remember that at the end, the fruit of patience is much greater.
What happened to use of Bredesen and his brothers, they threw him into the well. Right? So that he could be picked up by someone and you know, he could finish off that said they would never have to see him again. But look at what Allah gave him.
He was a slave. He had to go through the prison. He had to suffer temporary loss, but eventually a Lost Planet. Allah gave him so much. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was in Makkah he was evicted from Makkah, he went to Medina. But in Medina, what did people get over there? Fresh dates, isn't it's a fresh air. It was an oasis and Morocco was barren Valley, a barren desert. And then eventually the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was granted conquest of Makkah. And then, so much wealth was breathtaking. That people accepted Islam just to gain wealth. Isn't that how he gave like this and like this, this is how people described that a flock of sheep he gave away like that a herd of
galaxy gave away like that. So allows you have ASIC places, and people are not your boss.
So they fear of losing them should never ever prevent a person from obeying a loss of parameter.
Welcome at 11am in Koreatown, and how many have we destroyed of idea of cities?
How many cities we have destroyed before?
Because what are the people that maka saying that if we accept Islam, we will lose our materialistic blessings.
So Allah subhanaw taala reminds them that look at the people of the past. They had so much, but what happened to them when they did not believe that their blessings remain with them? No. Welcome, I like them in Korea tin berthelot marisha. So many cities were destroyed before that were insolent in its way of living, but they are bottled up under veterans law.
And Botha is used for the abundance of nirma when a person has a lot of blessings. As a result of which he becomes arrogant about it. He is not grateful for it. And he gets deceived by thinking that he is the best.
And he begins to show off. He becomes very proud, he begins to cross limits, but
we have read this word earlier as well that will add a conical Latina horologium in the area in Bhutan, where he is that all believers not be like those who left their homes befallen what Yeah, and that's and to show off to people and refers to the army of Americans when they came for the Battle of that, that how when they came, they had dancing girls with them and they had so many camels to slaughter every single day. And they said we have brought so much with us. We're not going back without shedding some blood.
So butter is what to be arrogant about the abundance of blessings, lack of sugar pride show off. So a comma lucknam in areas in Buffalo, North America in America from the room address or any Ayesha and Marija his livelihood, wealth
lifestyle. So their lifestyle was of arrogance and in gratitude for the blessings that they were given. They weren't grateful to Allah for them.
So what happened to these people, we destroyed them, fatigue kasatkina home. So these are their homes. lamda scum embarrassing him, no one lived in there after that. They were not dwelt in they were not inhabited after them. Once they were finished their houses they lay empty in the Caribbean, except just a little how there are any travelers passing by, perhaps they stay for some time to take some rest for just a day or a part of a day. We're called nanomedicine. And we are the heirs.
So look at the people of the past they had so much, but when they were arrogant, and when they did not give the hug of Allah when they were not grateful. And they refuse to believe what happened there materialistic blessings they remain behind while they were gone.
women cannot book a movie called Korra. And never would your Lord have destroyed the cities of Allah florala.
Korea, Allah would never destroy the cities had de Barasa until he raises fiumi Hello sulan. In its mother town, a messenger. So the previous people, when Allah destroyed them for their arrogance for their ingratitude. It wasn't that they did not No, no, Allah sent messengers to them. And where did he send the messengers feed? Only her in the mother town in the central town?
What does it mean by the own city?
You will see that many times people they live in populations in cities and towns that are close to one another,
They're just at a small distance from one another. But from all those towns, there's always a main central town. Like for example, in the GTA, what's the main city?
Toronto, right and in that also, it's the downtown. Right? So that's what the
the mothertongue Alright, so a lot of panel data whenever he sent messengers, where do you send them? Where do you send them to the mother town to the main cities, the greatest towns? Like for example, Sherry Bredesen, um, he was sent to him at the end. And also alayka, isn't it? But madeon was more central. This is why that is mentioned more more than a Laker
and that is where he used to live.
So a low would never destroy people until he sent in the mother town, a messenger
and that messenger what would he do yet through our lay him at night, he would recite upon them our verses? Well, Malcolm Nam of licking, Cora. And never would we destroy the town's illawarra who has only moon except when it's people are wrongdoers? That it's not that, you know, Allah would punish people without a reason. No, the punishment came after the messenger with sin. And the punishment came when the people were persistently wrong, then the punishment came.
But we see something very important over here.
Then whenever Allah sent messengers, he sent them to the main cities, not to the villages, not to the small towns. Why?
Because people to do all to the object, then, you know, whenever people want to teach others, their religion, they go to the big, big main towns, they don't go to the smaller cities, they don't go to the villages. Whereas the people in the villages even they need to learn why.
Exactly. When you start something in the main city, then the message, it spreads much faster.
There are people who live in downtown, and their work is such that they need clients, right? And they will not move anywhere else from there. Why?
Because when you're in downtown, when you're in the hub, when you're in the center, then your clients will come to you and then your work will prosper.
And if you are in a small city, then nobody will know you.
Correct. So, the smaller towns,
what happens to them, the people from there, the people from the smaller towns, the people from the villages, they follow the main cities, they follow the main towns, whatever happens in the big city, people in the smaller cities, they follow them, they emulate them.
And whatever happens in the main city, the news it reaches the smaller towns as well.
And people from the smaller cities, where do they travel to to the big cities
for their needs, right? So when they go for their needs, the big cities and obviously the message
will spread far and wide
and ultimately located the main centers visitor centers, where are they in the main city so people come and go all the time. And also, if you compare the population the population is always more in the main city.
Right? So this is why Allah subhanaw taala always sent messengers were in the main city so that the message would spread faster and quicker. And this is why Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was also sent way to Makkah. into the Shura is seven we learned later on there are omokoroa woman who told her so that you warned the mother of the cities and also those who are around it.
woman will determine che in and whatever thing you have been given from a terrible hypotonia so it is an enjoyment of this worldly life.
This is what prevents you from believing that if you believe you lose your job, if you start this you lose your friends. Then remember that whatever you have been given anything and everything.
And it's your homework to go home and observe everything that you possess.
And ask yourself is going with me to the grave?
What does Allah say over here? It is from a terrible hieratic dunia. It's the matar of this worldly life. It's only going to benefit you in this dunya. Nothing, nothing at all is going with you to your grave.
Your best bag, your best shoes, your best makeup, your best clothes, nothing.
Your best dishes and your best gadgets and nothing at all is going with you. It's just a matar in this dunya was Nina to her. And it's adornment. Omar in de la jolla.
And what is with Allah is better, much better than the things of dystonia?
How that whatever we have in this dunya what happens to it? It finishes, it runs out.
It's not as good. Anything that you have. You can always find faults in it, isn't it? No matter how much research you did before buying it before selecting it before bringing it home?
Even when you bring it home what happens? You think, Oh, I wish it was like that.
I wish this was different. I wish the color was slightly like this and the shape was slightly different. You always find faults in it. Why? Because it is something of dystonia. What is with Allah, the reward that Allah has, it is heightened. It's much better.
It's more complete, it's more perfect. It's more delicious. It's more enjoyable. And it's what abaca it's more elastic. It's more permanent. Because anything you have of dystonia, what happens either it will run out, or you will run out ephyra therapy Don't Don't you get it? Don't you understand?
Everything that you have in this dunya will stay here. It's not going with you. And what's going to happen to it it's going to be shattered, finished
shattered. If the mountains are going to be turned to dust then you think you're fine china is going to stay as it is no then why is it that still we give so much importance to the things of this dunya and when it comes to making the athleta when it comes to preparing the house in general we're not that concerned about
a philanthropy Don't Don't you understand
this is why our last panel Darla says well too soon Hayato
rather you give preference to the life of this world
well al Qaeda to hide on
a famine is then who the person who what are the now who we have promised him Why then has an A good promise. And what is a good promise? The promise of reward the promise of Jenna for who LLP and he will definitely meet it lackey from the Riveters Lam coffee Ellicott. What does the heart mean to me select the one who meets
so the person whom Allah has promised a good promise, a promise of gender and this person he will receive this promise it will be fulfilled for him. He will receive gender. Why?
Because Allah does not go against his promise.
FM Anwar the net who we have promised him Jenna and he will definitely get Jenna because Allah does not go against his promise. Now this person come in, can he be Like who? Matera now who whom we have benefited Medallia to dunia with the benefit of this life, the life of this world only. And then Summa hula Yeoman at MIT and then he on the Day of Judgment
Minimum offloading of those who are presented presented for what? punishment?
So one is the person who was living in order to be worthy of the promise agenda. How will he live with him? And how will he live? Will he give preference to the dunya? No, he will consider it as only mythical higher the dunya his focus will be man in the law, what is with Allah, this is what he's striving to gain.
So, this is one person who has certainty in the promises of Allah, and he is striving day in and day out to be worthy of it.
On the other hand, is a person who is busy enjoying the life of dystonia. materna, who, whom we have benefited him with what Metatron had the dunya he's just enjoying the worldly life is having a lot of fun, but without Amen.
And on the Day of Judgment, he will be of those who are my buddy, can they be equal,
they can never be equal.
You see, what is being compared over here is a person who is striving for the hero, and a person who's driving for the NEA.
A person who is driving for the Acura his concern is what the house of the near the house of gender
the beauty of the near the beauty of Jenna, the claws of the near the claws of gender, the trees of the near or the trees of gender. His concern is Jenna. This is why he will live his life differently. And on the other hand, is the person whose ultimate aim is what this dunya he just wants the benefit the enjoyment of this dunya they're not the same.
They are not the same.
But if you think of it, who are we impressed by
somebody who's enjoying De Niro somebody who is aiming for the alpha.
Typically, we get impressed by who people who are enjoying the dunya.
People who have big houses, great jobs, great careers, great friends, who own you know, resorts and all of that we get so impressed by them. And we forget that what they have is only metalheads.
And if they're not striving for the athleta then they're going to be minimal learning of those who are represented for punishment.
So we see that the life of the one who's aiming for alpha is completely different from the one who's aiming for dystonia. They're completely different.
Where Yama uniting him and on the day that he will call them, meaning Allah will call the people for your guru, especially who those who do check for your colusa he will say, I initial Raka aware of my partner's alladhina Quantum does your moon that you used to claim you used to assert the machine of Makkah what prevented them from believing what prevented them fear of worldly loss? Isn't it so? So that is clarified in the previous if you give importance to this dunya it's nothing so what if you enjoy dunya for so long, but eventually there's punishment? And remember that the one who does ship this is what's going to happen to him on the Day of Judgment. We oma Yoona Diem for your Kudo aina
Shaka you were my partner's Alina content as your moon. Why would Allah say this? For approach? Allah, He will say who alladhina hochkar Allah He will call those people on whom the word will have come into effect, how it will become due, it will become incumbent necessary what allow the word which word which statement is this, which sentence is this, the sentence of punishment, meaning, now they deserve the punishment, the sentence is due
and thus they will be admitted into the fire. So those people whose entry into the fire is confirmed it is guaranteed. What will they say? They will say robina Oh our Lord, how Ola a Latina of Waner. These are the people whom we lead astray. So who will speak up now when Allah would say Where are the idols, where the shadowcat that you used to worship? Who will speak up the leaders, those people who misled others, they will say, Oh our Lord, these are the people whom we that history of wayna. And we lead them astray away now whom come avena just as we were a strict meaning, we did not compel them to follow us. They followed us by their choice. Just as we learned earlier, that when a person
is not following the commands of Allah when he's not following the book of Allah and what is he following?
His own desire, he cannot say other people are forcing me. Other people that are telling me No, on the day of judgment, even this will be declared that way now come out hawaiiana. The leaders, they will say we lead them astray. Just as we were astray. We did not compel them. They followed us by choice.
W net Lake, we declare our innocence to you, McConnell, Yana Yarborough, they never used to worship us.
So on the Day of Judgment, the Shoraka those whom people worshiped
those whom people are buried in disobedience to Allah,
those whom people followed blindly, without thinking where they were taking them, they will speak up and they will say, oh, Allah, it's not our fault that these people worshipped us. It's not our fault. They followed us by choice. And the reality is America, no yada, yada, boom, they didn't actually worship us. Who do they worship, their desires, their own whims.
What do we see over here, that all those people who have a relationship in this dunya no matter how strong it is, but it's based on falsehood, it's based on [???], it's based on disobedience to Allah. Friends who help one another in doing wrong one is leading the others following and this could be at a smaller level at a bigger level at a smaller level, that one friend calls to doing rounds and the other friend follows. And at a bigger level, that one invites to worship and the other worships, one invites to disobedience of Allah and the other follows. So at whatever level at whatever scale, such friends what will be their state, on the day of judgment, they will disown one another, they'll be
blaming one another. As they're entering into the Hellfire, they're blaming one another. We don't enter the zone of is 67 A Hilah. Yama in Barbuda, Berlin are
close friends that they will be enemies to each other except for the righteous ones. They will be enemies except for those who are righteous, they will not be enemies to one another. Rather, they will be where on podiums of light
on pillars of light, a loss of penalty will honor them those who befriended one another for the sake of Allah and those who befriended one another for other things, they will become enemies to one another.
What's the main lesson in this
we have to check who we are following who we are listening to who we are befriending.
That many times we say that I cannot do this because of science.
I cannot do this because of them. I also have to please them, I also have to make them happy. You can make them happy in Estonia. But on the Day of Judgment, remember they will disown you when they're in trouble. They will say yellow we didn't force them we only told them it was their choice.
They will not take the blame, the blame will be put on you. You will be held responsible,
workI rather and it will be said call upon Shaka or come your partners. So, what will happen for their own? So they will actually call upon them on the Day of Judgment. But obviously philomela study below, but they will not respond to them. What are what are the ABA and they will see the punishment who those who did shake, low unknown can we have to do if only they were rightly guided.
If they were rightly guided, they would not have to see this end. They will not have to see this punishment they will not have to see this consequence.
We oma uniting him and on the day that he will call them for your kulu then he will say Mother or jepto more saline. What response? What answer Did you give to the messengers? Mather what is it that adjust them? you responded to almost selling the messengers?
the messengers who came to you who invited you to good who called you to the worship of Allah, how did you respond to them?
The messenger told you what to do, what not to do. What did you do them? Did you listen? Did you obey? Or did you have a list of excuses? They will have no response. Allah says follow me at are they human, but the information will be apparent to them yoma even that day, for whom lay alone so they will not be able to ask one another for Amir Amir from the roof address. I mean, yeah
Romi Armenia, what does it mean to be blind, to be unable to see one is the blindness of the sight that a person cannot see something and the other is blindness of the heart. that a person cannot understand cannot reflect. cannot realize so far on me yet, meaning it will become obvious
Cure, I lay him upon the
army I lay army I there is when something is so confusing, so unclear and so doubtful to a person that it is as though he is blind to it,
that he does not understand it. So it's as though he is blind to it. Because if he does not understand it, he does not recognize it. Even if he sees it. Will you know what it is? No. Like, for example, some people they're very particular about the ingredients, right? They know about every single ingredient, they do research to find out what's Okay, what's not, okay. What's healthy, what's not healthy, right. But there are other people who don't know. And when they don't know, even when they see the most dangerous of ingredients on some food product. It says, Oh, they don't know. It says, oh, they're blind to it. Right? They see so much sugar. But what is it to them? Nothing. No
big deal. For another person. It's like, cholesterol death, heart attack. But for another person, it means nothing. Right?
I saw this picture the other day, deep fried butter.
And there was a line of people who were actually buying that deep fried butter. And I was like, I saw the sign. And I'm like, Whoa, la la quwata. Beloved, there, people were standing in line, wanting to buy it in order to eat it. So for some people who know what it is, what it will lead to, it's a big deal. But for others who don't know, they're completely blind to it. It's as though they don't see it. It says Oh, they don't know what's there. So for me, what does it mean, as an expression army at our lynnium that it will become obscure to them, they will not understand, they will not see it will become apparent to them and bear the news yoma in that day, for whom letter
said alone, then they will not ask each other.
What does it mean by this?
That when Allah will question them, how did you respond to the messengers, Fermi at are they you will remember, they will have nothing to say.
All the news, all the information that they knew before, it will be as though they don't see it anymore. They don't know anything. It says oh they have become blind. So they will have no statement to utter that might contain hope of salvation for them.
They will have nothing to say they will not be able to think of anything. When Allah will question them they will be silent, mute, unable to respond. For me at our name will Umberto but even for whom nyasa alone and then they will not be able to ask one another either. Typically what happens if something big happens? people begin to ask each other people begin to question one another.
If I asked you a question and you're unsure, what will you do as the person sitting next to you? Isn't it whisper or whatever. But those people on that day when Allah will question them, there'll be so shocked. They'll be rendered speechless, they'll be unable to say anything, and they'll be unable to ask each other even.
They'll be unable to ask each other even they will not be able to even speak to one another. Ask how you're doing what do you think the answer is nothing.
Why? Because of the fear because of their realization that they're in trouble that when the messenger scam they did not respond positively in this ayah is a severe severe warning.
That if a person does not obey the messenger does not respond to the command of the messenger in a positive way. Then he will be in a lot of trouble on the Day of Judgment.
Who will be saved for a moment other than as for the one who repented what Amina and he believed what Amina sila and any does righteous deeds as well for us in your corner? We then move on then it is hoped that such people will be those who are successful who
those who repent everyone makes mistakes. It's possible you know of something you don't do it. But now that you realize you do it, Dabba What am I gonna what I mean I saw a hand then for such people for ourselves in your corner meter.
But if a person keeps delaying, keep saying that we please that person first and let me listen to them first and then I will come to this command, then I will start doing this. If a person keeps delaying, then who is he putting in trouble himself. The only way to success is what doba realize your mistake, turn to Allah increase in righteous deeds. And then a person can hope that he will be of those who are successful.
If you notice the word asset is used over here. Some understand this to be perhaps hopefully it
Maybe hoped and other say that are sad when used for a loss of penalty it means definitely it gives meaning of a promise
that's listen to the recitation of these verses.
