00:00:02--> 00:00:02

was a bit late

00:00:04--> 00:00:05

for him.

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

Lesson number 208. So to room number one to 19.

00:00:12--> 00:00:19

So that alone is a machimura. And it was revealed after so little in Chicago,

00:00:20--> 00:00:32

where it's a little in Chicago, in witches in the 30 ages. So this soul was revealed after so little in Chicago. And this soda is a very short soda and it has only 60 verses.

00:00:33--> 00:00:41

At the end of the previous soda soda Anka booth we learned when levina gehad leucaena learned the unknown, similar

00:00:42--> 00:01:17

that those people who strive in our way in us, then we will guide them to our ways as well. And if you notice, it hasn't been said Fie, Sabina what has been said, feelin that a person who strives in order to gain the pleasure of Allah, he's striving, he's putting in effort, he's suffering from difficulties, he doesn't give up, he doesn't quit, he holds on he keeps going, he keeps driving, why do you get the pleasure of Allah then what happens? Allah subhanaw taala shows him the way as well. He shows him that which he does not show to others,

00:01:18--> 00:01:48

you understand, meaning the person who strives in order to gain the pleasure of Allah, He will be shown such ways which other people cannot see, he will be shown such opportunities, which other people will not see, he will be given so many opportunities, so many ways, he will be able to take advantage of them which other people may not be able to take advantage of Why? Because he is interested. He wants to gain the pleasure of Allah. It's just like you ask someone to go get something for you from the next room.

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

They're going to come back and they say, Oh, I didn't find it. And you go and you find it. What's the difference?

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

What's the difference?

00:01:57--> 00:02:17

You know it, you really want to get it. The other person is not that interested. They consider that going to the next room as a chore, which is why they will go look carelessly here and there and they'll come back telling you I didn't see there is a difference, right? So the person who wants the pleasure of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala shows him the way.

00:02:18--> 00:02:39

And in this surah right at the beginning of the solar, we're told about a prediction, a prophecy. Something that was going to happen very soon after this is were revealed. And in this is a very subtle, a very deep connection. That a believer whenever he is going through difficulties, he doesn't give up.

00:02:40--> 00:02:49

He relies on Allah He holds on to Allah. And while other people see all the doors as closed, he sees doors open,

00:02:51--> 00:03:00

where other people see complete darkness in front of them. The one who strives in order to gain the pleasure of a lot what happens to him, he sees light.

00:03:01--> 00:03:21

In the beginning of the surah, we will learn about how the Romans were defeated. And the machine of Makkah, they said to the Muslims that we will defeat you, just like the Romans were defeated. So at such a time, you may feel okay, no options left no hope left. No light at all. But the one who relies on Allah and who keep striving what happens then at the end?

00:03:23--> 00:03:29

Allah shows him the way Allah gives him hope he can still see like he can still see hope he does not kill

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim.

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

Alif Lam mean, hello Katara.

00:03:38--> 00:04:03

These who've lost planet Allah knows best about their exact meaning about their exact significance. However, as many scholars have said, that these rules definitely, they tell us about the miraculous nature of the Quran. That's what they demonstrate that these hurdles are hurdles that are well known to you, you use them all the time to make up your words and sentences. But you cannot produce anything like this.

00:04:04--> 00:04:23

And as you know that after these hurdles always are something that is mentioned about the Quran. In the previous surah, what did we learn the consequence of believing in the Quran? And over here, what do we learn about a prophecy, a prediction, which in itself shows that the Quran is a miracle.

00:04:24--> 00:04:34

Whenever the Romans have been conquered, the Romans have been defeated. The Holy Books hollybeth from the roof address, line, lamb,

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

and halda are Vala means to overpower the other to defeat the other. So Woody, but it was overpowered. It was defeated. It was overcome who have room the room meaning the Romans, by who? By the Persians. Our room refers to the Roman people the Roman Empire.

00:05:00--> 00:05:05

The Roman armies, the room, the people who used to live in Rome at the time.

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

And remember that those people, they were Christians, so who were the

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

unlocator

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

and they had been defeated by the Persians and who were Persians.

00:05:18--> 00:05:39

They were fire worshippers, the restaurants mostly key. Now the Romans, they are a nation of people. Who were the descendants of room, been eyes been as have been able to heal. So what does it show to us they were descendants of Abraham and his center.

00:05:40--> 00:06:15

And a room is actually the name of a person who was the predecessor of the Romans. And the people of Rome as well as the area where they used to live, both of them came to be known as a room just as the people of Subbu What do we know about them, the area where they used to live, as well as the nation themselves, what are they known as Subbu. Similarly, the people of Meridian, the place they lived, and the name of the people both are known as muddy. So the same case is with a room.

00:06:16--> 00:06:42

Now, these people, they were a Christian nation, and mainly Eastern Orthodox Church, and over here of Rome refers to not the entire Roman Empire, but rather it refers to the ancient Roman Empire, which was the eastern part of the Byzantine Empire. Because Byzantine Empire and the Roman Empire both are used interchangeably, isn't it?

00:06:43--> 00:06:57

So, a wound refers to mainly the eastern part of the Byzantine empire that had separated from the main and bar in 395 ad. It had separated from the main Empire, in which time 395 80

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

and it includes the area of Syria, Palestine and Central Asia.

00:07:03--> 00:07:08

So what area are we talking about present day Syria, Palestine and Central Asia.

00:07:09--> 00:07:20

And in the 15th century, this area, it fell into the hands of the Muslims, the Muslims conquered this area at the hands of Sultan Muhammad Fattah.

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

So, whenever the Romans have been defeated, over here, reference is to the defeat of Romans at the hands of Persians.

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

And this was six or seven years before the hyjal.

00:07:37--> 00:07:57

When was this? six to seven years before Hitler and where were they defeated? In which area in particular, Allah subhanaw taala says v edendale. of the in the nearest land near his land to to Arabia to Makkah, meaning that part of the Roman Empire which was not too far from

00:07:58--> 00:08:13

you understand because the Empire itself was huge we're talking about Asia we're talking about Palestine about Syria it's a huge area so where exactly were the defeated which part the part that was adding our closest part to Makkah

00:08:14--> 00:08:30

at dinner from the river is Dan noon well do you know to be close to below and over here Adena meaning closer closest very near while home and they remember the hola be him after their defeat, say ugly bone soon they will overpower.

00:08:31--> 00:08:38

Allah be over here. Allah, Allah be him. What does it refer to their defeat? They're being overcome.

00:08:39--> 00:08:47

Very soon after that, what's going to happen sadly, boom, they will overpower. They will overpower who the Persians

00:08:48--> 00:08:59

right now they have been defeated. But very soon what's going to happen? They will overpower their enemy, they will regain their victory.

00:09:01--> 00:09:10

Remember that at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were two great empires and which ones were there. The Persian and secondly, the Roman Empire.

00:09:11--> 00:09:54

And the Romans, Who were they? They were Christians. So there were unlocator. And the Persians as I mentioned to you earlier, who were there, the restaurants they were Michigan, and these two nations because they were extremely mighty. And they were right next to each other. There was always conflict between the two. The understand because they were right next to each other, and they were also extremely powerful. As a result, what happened, there were always conflict between the two at one time, one would attack the other, invade the other and overpower the other. And at another time, what would happen, they would attack the other and they would overpower them. So this back and forth

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

was constantly a part of Roman and Persian history. This always was

00:10:01--> 00:10:15

And we see that after the birth of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in the year 603, the Persians they attack the Romans because the Romans at that time they had become extremely weak. So the Persians, what do they do? They attack the Roman Empire.

00:10:16--> 00:10:40

And within a few years, by the year 616, they managed to conquer the entire Roman Empire. And they took their control over even Jerusalem, that you can imagine, Romans were who Christians and for them, what was the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and that fell into the hands of the Persians. So, just imagine, the Romans are completely defeated.

00:10:41--> 00:11:29

Now, the Muslims, in their belief, who are they closer to the Romans and the mushrikeen, who were they're closer to in their beliefs, the Persians and this is why, naturally the Muslims would sympathize with the Romans. All right, the Christians and wished again, they would sympathize with the Persians. Just as even today, if you know there's a cricket match between India and England, what happens? People say, oh, aside with the unemployed or not with the wish, again, we'll say that a lot. I mean, it has nothing to do with politics, nothing whatsoever. But what happens, you naturally tend to have sympathy with who the one who is closer to you in faith isn't itself and the

00:11:29--> 00:12:06

one who was more distant to you, even if there's nothing between you and then what happens, you have no interest in them. And also Muslims had more sympathy with the Romans. Why? Because Around this time, some of the Muslims had migrated to Abyssinia. And a Christian King had given his help had offered his help to the Muslims. So you can imagine naturally, the Muslim sympathized with the Romans and the muskie, they sympathize with the Persians. And when this defeat happened, when this battle happened, and Jerusalem, it fell into the hands of the Persians, the Romans were completely defeated. The Muslims, you can imagine how sad they must have been.

00:12:07--> 00:12:18

You can imagine how upset there must have been, how grief stricken there must have been. And the situation in Makkah was not any better, because the Muslims were weak before who, before then wished he came.

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

And on the other hand, the Romans who were closer to Muslims and their belief, even they had been defeated by the machine.

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

The machine, they became extremely arrogant at this point. And they began saying to the Muslims in Makkah, that just as the Romans were defeated, we too are going to defeat you.

00:12:37--> 00:12:50

Just as the Romans were finished, similarly, we're also going to finish one day, just wait, just wait for a few more days and see this religion of yours that you've invented, it's going to come to an end, all of you are going to be silenced.

00:12:52--> 00:13:31

Now, this was a great test for the Muslims, you can imagine, it was extremely difficult for them. You may wonder, that battle between Romans and Persians What did that have to? Do? You know anything at all with the Muslims and Mexicans? Yes, they weren't a part of it. They didn't gain any benefit, but it has some effect on you. If your country, the country that you belong to, when something loses something, don't you rejoice? Don't you become sad? Of course, the Muslims in another land if they are victorious, don't you become happy? Of course you do. If they suffer, don't you suffer? Of course you do. So although you are not actively participating with them, but definitely their

00:13:31--> 00:13:43

defeat, their victory impacts you. And the Muslims were also extremely sad, because of the same reason. And because it gave an opportunity to the Michigan to rejoice at them.

00:13:45--> 00:13:50

So you can imagine at this time, in this day, Allah subhanaw taala revealed these ions

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

that will leave at your room, fee as an RV, were home embody hollaby him, sadly, boom.

00:14:00--> 00:14:08

Now, this was a prophecy this was a prediction. And this gave a lot of hope to the Muslims.

00:14:09--> 00:14:25

This gave a lot of hope to the Muslims. So at that time of sadness and despair, a Lost Planet, Allah gave them good news. That it seems impossible that Romans will ever regain their victory, but Allah subhanaw taala will give them victory.

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

And this was also a subtle message for the Muslims. What was that? That Yes, you are weak. Now. Yes, you are defeated now at the hands of your enemy. But this is just a matter of a few years, very soon, Allah will also aid you. And we see that this prophecy, it did come to pass it was fulfilled as we learned in the following Ayah and this was an evidence of the truthfulness of the Quran and also the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because this actually happened very soon after the defeat major change

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

occurred in the Eastern Roman Empire. And in the year 623. The Romans they attack the Persians and in the year 624, they gained a decisive victory said within one year 623 they attacked and 624 they were victorious.

00:15:17--> 00:15:39

And by 627, the Romans had taken back all of their lands from the Persians. So the tables completely turned within a few years, when were they defeated In which year 616. And now in 623, in a matter of seven years, that's it, the Romans they gained their victory back over the Persians.

00:15:40--> 00:15:45

And it is said that it was at the same time as the Muslims gained victory at British

00:15:47--> 00:15:57

that just as the Muslims were victorious at the Battle of whether what happened, they got the news that the Romans had also gained victory over the Persians.

00:15:58--> 00:16:26

fielder essene in a few years lilla Hill amaru to Allah belongs among men fabuleux before women bark, and also after way oma even and that day, yeah, for a minute on, the believers will rejoice. feeble recently the word billary is used for some several few. And in particular, it is used for a number that is between three and nine.

00:16:28--> 00:17:14

So we're talking about somewhere between three and nine, some say any number more than five, and others say any number less than 10. But the stronger opinion is between three and nine. So Fie builder is seen in a few years, within three to nine years, what's going to happen, what's going to happen? The Romans, they will Yaga Lee Boone over who, over the Persians and that's exactly what happened, as I mentioned to you, in 616, they lost and in 623, they regained their victory, so feeble there is any this is going to happen within a few years. lilla Hill amaroo Why will this happen because to Allah belongs all the command all of the affairs the decision of it belongs to who

00:17:14--> 00:17:41

lilla and lamb overhears for hustle, meaning only to him. And I'm over here and this L is of is this rock, what does it mean? entirely all of the command every command whether it is Goni or it is shuttering. Whether it has to do with the universe or it has to do with the religious laws that our last panel has given, who has the authority to decide and implement a last parameter.

00:17:42--> 00:17:54

So yes, this loss happened this victory happened this defeat happened, but at whose command at whose permission, a loss of penalty, because all of the command it belongs to who exclusively Allah soprano

00:17:56--> 00:18:16

min cabello. Before before what before the defeat of the Romans, woman Bardo and also after the defeat of the Romans, men Pablo before the defeat of the Romans and women bad after the defeat of the Romans or after the victory of the Romans.

00:18:17--> 00:18:31

So in every situation, whether someone is losing or someone is victorious, someone is being defeated. Someone is gaining victory, who has the authority who decides who allows that to happen? Allah soprano.

00:18:32--> 00:18:40

Because generally what happens when it comes to the deen when it comes to something that happens with the Muslims only we think or this has happened by the permission of Allah.

00:18:41--> 00:19:00

But what does this show to us? anything that happens in this dunya whether it is with Muslims, or non Muslims with al Qaeda within which they came, whether it is something that has to do with politics or with anything else who has the authority, by whose permission, everything happens? Unless

00:19:01--> 00:19:45

lilla Hill, I'm Roman covelo remembered where Yama is in And on that day, which day, on the day that you will see the Romans victorious over the Persians year for honeymoon, the believers will be very happy. Yeah, for who for? They'll be excited, they'll be happy, they will rejoice. Why will they rejoice? Why? Because first of all, the Romans have been victorious. The prediction, the promise that Allah subhanaw taala made that has been fulfilled. This is an evidence of the truthfulness of the Quran. So you can imagine how happy the Muslims would be. Because a few years ago, when it seemed impossible for the Romans to be victorious, there, the author being revealed, the Romans are

00:19:45--> 00:19:56

going to regain their victory. Just imagine, imagine if we were told something like that. We'd be a bit doubtful. And imagine if that is fulfilled, how happy you would be

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

when you say that something's going to happen, and after some

00:20:00--> 00:20:19

time it does happen, aren't you happy? Aren't you excited? So similarly, we oma in India for one woman on and why else are the Muslims be happy, because in that day they will also be victorious over their enemy at the Battle of, but when they will be victorious and their enemy will be defeated.

00:20:21--> 00:21:08

Now we see that in Makkah, there seemed to be absolutely no sign of the present situation changing at all. Because the Muslims are constantly suffering, each day the persecution was increasing. If you look at the Moroccan era, at the beginning, the persecution was there, however, it was less. But as time went by the persecution only increased to the point that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam left Makkah, his life was in danger, isn't it? So in Makkah, there seemed to be no hope that the situation would ever change. And if Allah subhanaw taala, saying that this situation will change, it seemed far from reality, it seemed extremely difficult to believe, because each day the persecution

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

was only increasing. But what do we learn from these Ayah?

00:21:14--> 00:22:01

That no matter what situation a person may be in, how should he be, he should be hopeful. He should never ever despair of Allah's mercy. And if Allah has made a promise, he should believe in it with conviction. In the previous lecture, what did we learn that when a person will accept a man, when a person will become serious about Islam, when he will try to implement the commands of Allah subhanaw taala the teachings of the Quran? What's going to happen? What's going to happen? He will face difficulties, he will face challenges, sometimes from who, from his own family, sometimes from his own friends in different different ways. But what do we see that no matter what situation a person

00:22:01--> 00:22:26

may be in, he should never, ever give up hope. If somebody does not allow you to do something, when you want to do it, don't think, Oh, I'm never going to be able to do it. Don't think like that. Don't look at them. Look at the power of Allah subhanaw taala. You have to be hopeful, you have to think positive, because the moment you give up, then what's going to happen? Really, that thing is never going to happen.

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

Because you stop striving for it, you stop praying for it.

00:22:32--> 00:22:38

And if you stay hopeful, you remain positive, what's going to happen? You're going to find a way of doing it.

00:22:39--> 00:22:55

As we learned that we're Latina, gehad rufina. Then at the end, Noam sybrina, Allah will show them the way. And if a person says, Oh, this is not meant for me, I'm never going to be able to do it. This is impossible. My family does not cooperate, then really, that person will not be able to do

00:22:56--> 00:23:32

this the other day, somebody was mentioning to me about how when they learned about the importance of, you know, covering properly and wearing the hijab, she wanted to do it. But her husband said No way, you can never do it. You're not allowed to do it. And she said, every time she'd put it on, to go out somewhere husband would sit down, that I'm not going until you take this off. If you were in this situation, what would you do? Fine, I accept it. Maybe I'm not meant to do it. Right? If you were in this situation, just imagine what would you do? You give up right? After some time, you'd stop trying. But this sister, she was telling me that one day she just came home and told her

00:23:32--> 00:23:51

husband, I'm going to wear Please let me wait. He was silent. The next day, they had to go somewhere. She wore it. He said you're going to wear it. She said yes, I am going to wear it. I'm not taking it off. And she kept it on. He was upset one day, two days, three days. And then after that he's looking for bias where

00:23:52--> 00:24:14

imagine this is just a test. This is just a test that allows pathologists that how strong are we? how determined are we? And if at the time of opposition, we think oh, I'm not meant to do it. This is not for me just accept, then really when you give up hope, then how will you find a way you will not find a way.

00:24:15--> 00:24:48

So at a time when you see no light, no hope, stay hopeful, be hopeful and rely upon Allah subhanaw taala This is why Alina sabado were allowed to work alone. Those were patient and they rely on their Lord. That Yes, the situation is extremely difficult. It seems impossible. But my Lord will not abandon me He will not leave me. I have to keep trying. I have to become firm, and I have to be positive. And as long as you're like that, Allah will also send you his aid.

00:24:49--> 00:24:58

Whenever a person faces any difficulty, what do we learn that on one hand he should be patient in bearing the difficulty and on the other he should rely upon Allah serpentine

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

and relying upon

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

Allah means that you don't give up hope. Relying on Allah means that you're Allah, you make the way for me, you make it possible for me, I am weak, I am unable, but you allow me, you make the ways for me. And when a person relies upon the loss penalty like this, then definitely, definitely, Allah subhanaw taala will help me.

00:25:23--> 00:25:51

And we see over here, that the Romans, they were defeated, and after some time, they regained their victory. Right? The Muslims in Makkah, they were so weak, but after some time, they were victorious. What do we see that nose situation remains permanent. No situation, no circumstance remains permanent. If somebody does not cooperate with you today, to stay silent, keep praying to Allah, and they will cooperate with you tomorrow.

00:25:52--> 00:26:33

You don't have to give up hope. The only thing that is constant in life is what? Change. Every single day we see this happening. The day changes into the night, the night changes into the day. Every single day we see this, we see a child one day we see them after a week, we're like, oh my god, they've changed so much. We meet someone one day, we meet them after two weeks, and we say oh, you changed. You look different. You look tired, or you look rested, isn't it we always say these things whenever we see someone after a long period of time. So we see that nothing remains the same. So why should we ever think that if the situation has become difficult for us, it will forever

00:26:33--> 00:26:44

remain difficult. It will not forever remain difficult, it will become easy. But when when you don't give up, and you rely on the last parameter, and you believe in the promises of Allah.

00:26:46--> 00:27:31

We learned earlier in 140, that what we'll call a yamo nuda, we do have a nurse. And these days, we alternate between the people, meaning that one day one has authority. And the other day, the other person has authority. One day one person is defeated and tomorrow he is victorious. So just because you have the upper hand today, doesn't mean you will remain like this forever. So don't become too proud. And if you are weak today, don't think you will forever remain weak. So don't despair of Allah's mercy. Don't despair of a loss, help and support what we'll call a young new that we don't have a nest today, one has victory tomorrow, the other will have victory. And this success and loss

00:27:31--> 00:27:52

in the dunya is what is a test that what do you do when things are good? And what do you do? when circumstances are difficult? Do you turn to Allah? Do you give up? Or are you patient? Are you positive? Are you confident? Are you sad? Are you angry? How do you behave?

00:27:53--> 00:28:05

This is basically what the test is about that what do you do? Does your Eman increase? Does it decrease? Does your dollar increase? Or does it decrease? What happens? What do you do

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

Assalamu alaikum.

00:28:08--> 00:28:45

I was listening to the process. And I'm this weekend. And during the boycott, the companions, they went through this severe test of hunger. And nobody complained. nobody complained whatsoever. I was listening that one of the companions, he found something near his foot that was soft and moist, he picked it up. It was dark, he ate it. And he didn't know ever he didn't find out ever what it was. And for three days if you need anything after that, that was only food, they would eat leaves every you know, they didn't have anything at all. And I was thinking just five minutes ago, we had a test of heat. Whether we could stay in this room or not without the AC. And as everybody's face I thought

00:28:45--> 00:29:17

oh man, what are people thinking right now? What are they gonna do? How many complaints are we gonna get? There's no AC, you know, it's kind of such a small test. They went through it for so many months. We only have to go through something like this for one day. Just think about it, how much did they strive, and there is non Muslims there as well. Not just Muslims, non Muslims as well. And they went through so much. And after that the process of them he continued his work. Regardless, all of this he continued his work within that time his wife died after that, you know, he went to die if he did not stop. He didn't say I'm too hungry. Forget this, you know, or it's too hard. I can't do

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

this.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

See what is that a person just gets lost in the problem that he's suffering from.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

And he's only concerned about it, I'm hungry, I'm hot. I'm tired. I'm this, I'm that. And when a person is only concerned about that problem, that problem is on his head. Really he cannot do anything else. Isn't it so? Isn't it? That when you're telling yourself I'm hungry, I'm hungry, I'm hungry. Can you really do anything? You can't. But if you tell yourself Yes, I'm hungry. However this needs to get done. Your work anyway. Just as we've been learning, the person who was focused the person who has a purpose in life, then no matter what happens in life, he

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

remains focus, the ups and downs they come and they go, but nothing distracts him from his purpose. So one is that, you know, it taught in the classroom and we think, oh my god is it going to be like this for the rest of the day, I'm going to sleep in the class, but the other is okay, whether it's hot or cold, I'm in class, I have to focus I have do my work, and you do it. And you know what's going to happen after some time you forget the heat? Honestly, you will. But if you keep telling yourself, it's so hot, it's so humid, it's so smelly, then what's going to happen, you will not be able to do any work. But if you focus on your work, it'll make you overcome your circumstances.

00:30:42--> 00:31:04

So what's the lesson learned from these is that no matter what situation a person may be in, he should not give up hope of Allah subhanaw taala he should not think that the situation will never change, no, he should remain positive. He should have to work on Allah, he should do suffer, he should increase in his there are and very soon the situation will change.

00:31:06--> 00:31:21

That sometimes it happens that other people they discourage you that why you know, it's so difficult for you, you're going through so much difficulty Why are you doing this, take it easy on yourself. But we see that if a person has trust on Allah, then he will not give much importance to what other people are saying to him.

00:31:22--> 00:31:39

Venus Lila, by the help of Allah with the help of Allah. What does it mean by this? That the allocator meaning the Romans, they will use a boon they will overpower the Persians. How, by the help of Allah

00:31:40--> 00:32:10

or the previous ayah ends with we oma even yeah for hilmi noon, that day, the believers will rejoice why Venezuela in the victory of Allah in the victory that Allah subhanaw taala has granted to them. So how do we understand Venezuela, that first of all, the Romans will conquer the Persians, how with the help of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala will aid them against their enemy, and they will be victorious.

00:32:11--> 00:32:45

And secondly, that the believers they will rejoice that day, three left in the victory of Allah meaning in the victory that Allah subhanaw taala will give them at the Battle of by the young soul Romania Sha, Allah helps whomsoever He wills. Well, who are Aziz of Rahim and he is the mighty, and he is the Especially Merciful, he is mighty, meaning he is all able to seize the wrongdoers. And He is merciful, that he helps whoever he wants. He is Aziz. And he's also

00:32:47--> 00:32:58

if you look at it, the believers at the Battle of button, how many were there 313. And then we're sticking three times their number, but I'll also help them.

00:32:59--> 00:33:11

On the other hand, we see that the Romans they had been completely defeated by the Persians, to the point that even Jerusalem was under the control of the Persians. But what happened? The situation completely changed. But how?

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

Venus,

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

Venus Lila This is what a person should have hope

00:33:19--> 00:33:44

that if I keep doing what I'm supposed to do, a lot will also help me. I cannot accomplish this myself. No, Allah will give me the strength, he will provide the opportunity to me, he will make the weight for me. And a person must have this conviction that will ziza Rahim that for Allah. Nothing is difficult. He's Aziz, and he's a Rahim.

00:33:45--> 00:33:53

And Aziz from the ruthless aim, they say the name of Allah. Are these What does it mean? The Almighty

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

but remember that it's from the word is

00:33:57--> 00:34:03

Aziz is basically Zoeller is the possessor of is and what does that mean,

00:34:04--> 00:34:09

is with regards to a loss of penalty is of three types. First of all, is it true?

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

That he is the possessor of or is a two parter?

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

And what does it mean by or is it

00:34:17--> 00:34:24

meaning the one who is respected, the one who is dear The one who is beloved, the one who is distinguished?

00:34:25--> 00:34:34

So, he is not like anyone else, but rather He is Allah Aziz, he is distinguished, he is respected.

00:34:35--> 00:34:39

Secondly, and Aziz means Zhu izettle.

00:34:41--> 00:35:00

Meaning, the one who is a possessor of or executive and what does power mean dominance authority over the other go, to have power over the other to have complete control to overpower and remember that this does not necessarily give the meaning of aggressiveness because

00:35:00--> 00:35:44

Sometimes we think of someone who is mighty and powerful, what do we think are very aggressive? No, this is not what this word means necessarily. What it means is that one who is completely powerful, completely capable, he is completely strong, he is all able he is mighty, that he can accomplish anything that he wants to nothing at all is difficult for him, nothing at all is challenging for him. So, he is a disease. And thirdly, the third type of reason is, there is a tool in Tina Elif mean, known Elif, I am Tina. And what does mttr mean halda meaning the power to prevent it from what does it mean?

00:35:46--> 00:36:08

To stop? So empty now is to have the power to prevent. So what does it mean by that? Meaning one who is so powerful that everyone else before him is powerless. No one can harm him in any way. He has complete power and authority to prevent any harm from reaching him. You understand

00:36:09--> 00:36:58

any harm at all, safe, Allah has said that the Romans will be victorious than what will happen they will definitely be victorious. The Persians no matter what they do, they cannot change this word of Allah because Allah He is Allah Aziz will who will Aziz of Rahim, and Rahim what meaning does it give as opposed to a regimen that the one who is Especially Merciful towards you towards the believers? And Rahim also gives a meaning of the act of showing mercy, where a man gives the meaning of the sliver of Rama? And Rahim gives the meaning of the act of showing mercy. So Rahim is the one who shows mercy of a man is Laura Martin. Was your the possessor of was your mercy. But uh, Rahim is

00:36:58--> 00:37:16

the one who shows mercy. So what what are these of Rahim? So he is completely capable of granting victory, of helping his servants of changing the situation, completely capable, that no one at all can change his plan.

00:37:18--> 00:37:34

Everything as far as before him, and changing the situation is not at all difficult for him. We might think, Oh, my God, this is so difficult. How is it possible? How is it possible? But for Allah, everything is possible. It's not difficult at all. And he is a Rahim.

00:37:35--> 00:37:44

What are the promise of Allah what is the promise of Allah, of this victory of health, which victory which help

00:37:45--> 00:37:51

that was granted to the Romans and also which will be granted to the Muslims, where the law

00:37:52--> 00:38:01

lay only for law who are the who and Allah, He does not go against his promise, usually for her land fair health.

00:38:02--> 00:38:06

Health literally means to go back to go behind.

00:38:07--> 00:38:17

And UCLA use LIFO is to go back on one's word, that a person said he will do something but he goes back on his promise, he goes back on his word, meaning he doesn't do it. He breaks his promise.

00:38:18--> 00:38:33

So Allah lay Allah Who are the who he does not go against his promise, meaning any promise that Allah has made any promise at all, he does not break it. He always always fulfilled it.

00:38:35--> 00:38:56

into the top 29 we learn more you bet the little cola the year, the word will not be changed with me. The word the promise that Allah has made, it is not changed. It is not altered. Allah fulfilled his promise, when I can act on NASA lay on the moon, but most people they do not know. What do they not know?

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

That Allah fulfills his promises?

00:39:00--> 00:39:06

that his promise is true. He will fulfill it he will never ever go against it.

00:39:07--> 00:39:18

So what do we see over here? That Allah subhanaw taala has promised His help to alladhina jaha delphina. He has promised His help to such people

00:39:19--> 00:39:32

are in the Lucha Lama al Marcin and Indeed Allah, his help is with those who are silent This is a promise of Allah. But what happens? Most people they do not believe in this promise with conviction.

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

Because if they believed with conviction, then what would happen they would never give up.

00:39:38--> 00:39:46

They would never give up hope. They would always remain positive. They would be strong they would continue, no matter how difficult the situation might become.

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

Because they know that Allah has promised his help.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

And if a person believes that for his efforts, there is reward inshallah. If a person believes in this promise of Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

pentol as well, then what will happen, he will continue, he will never give up, he will never become lazy. But we see that most people they don't realize this promise layer on the moon, when I can act on NASA layer on the moon, the majority of the people, they do not know about this.

00:40:18--> 00:40:52

Which is why after some time they give up. After some time, they become negative. After some time they think it's impossible. Maybe that promise was not meant for me. Maybe it's just for someone else. But I cannot rely on them. But why is it so why do most people not know why do they not realize this that allows promises are true? Because the way that Allah fulfills his promises, is very subtle, that people don't even realize the way that Allah fulfills his promises is extremely subtle, that people don't even realize.

00:40:53--> 00:40:57

If you look at how the day turns into the night, it's so subtle.

00:40:59--> 00:41:01

Such a huge change, but it's so subtle.

00:41:02--> 00:41:08

similarity the way life turns to death. Such a huge change, but it's so subtle.

00:41:09--> 00:41:15

So this is why many people they do not realize because the way that Allah does things many times is subtle.

00:41:16--> 00:41:26

And why is it that people don't understand this? Because here are the Mona Lisa here Amina Hayato dunia, they know only that which is a parent of this worldly life.

00:41:27--> 00:41:30

Yala Mona, I love me.

00:41:31--> 00:41:35

They know only the raw hair mineral highest adonia of the life of this world.

00:41:36--> 00:41:45

This is why they don't believe in the promises of Allah. This is why they don't have conviction in the promise that Allah subhanaw taala has made

00:41:46--> 00:42:05

because they only know the apparent matters of this worldly life while home herati home Garfield and they are completely heedless and unaware of the hereafter. Because if they had yaqeen in the Hereafter, then what would happen? They would have been in the premises of

00:42:06--> 00:42:17

but because they are completely unaware of the Hereafter, they only know the superficial of this dunya This is why they don't believe in the promises of Allah with conviction.

00:42:18--> 00:42:29

Yeah, the moon from remember that are elements of two types. Over here, what do we learn here are the Mona Lisa Heron realm is of two types. One type of realm is

00:42:31--> 00:42:42

the one that is being mentioned over here. What does it mean by law here? What is the law here, one that is apparent? One that is obvious one that is visible, one that is on the surface.

00:42:43--> 00:42:48

So the law Haiti or aim of something is to just know the affair and aspect of something.

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

But that's it.

00:42:51--> 00:42:56

Like, for example, you see a book? What is it?

00:42:57--> 00:43:10

This is just a book, you don't know what the name of the book is, you don't know who the author is, you don't know what the book talks about. You don't know who the book belongs to? You have no idea about all of this. What do you know, this is just a book, this is what we're here

00:43:11--> 00:43:16

to know about the apparent aspect of something only. This is one type of knowledge.

00:43:17--> 00:43:23

The other type of knowledge is happy theory in the knowledge of the reality of something.

00:43:25--> 00:43:30

What does it mean by that? It means to know the inner aspect of something,

00:43:31--> 00:43:41

to know the beginning of something, the end of something, to know the purpose of something. And this is really, this is complete knowledge.

00:43:42--> 00:44:05

Taking the same example of the book. One is that a person says Oh, it's a book. And the other is that a person looks at the book. And he recognizes what kind of a book it is. Whether it's a book of science, it's a book of self help, it's a book of, you know, whatever cooking anything, he reads the title and from that he can figure out he reads the name of the publisher and from that he can figure out

00:44:06--> 00:44:21

so this is a healthy thing to know about the reality of something, the inner aspect of something, the depth of something, the beginning of something, the end of something, the purpose of something the function of something.

00:44:22--> 00:44:25

Now the majority of the people what do they know what kind of knowledge do they have?

00:44:26--> 00:44:29

Yala Muna Sahil Malhotra, Danny,

00:44:30--> 00:44:55

just the apparent things Oh, so until one also until last. How did they win? Why did they win? What happened? Why did they lose? How did they lose what happened? No idea. All they know is so into one so and so lost and lost. That's it. This is what law had. Now most people they only know the law hit of what alhaj akademia

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

of the life of dystonia,

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

which is very

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

monarcas, which is incomplete deficient knowledge, it's not common. They just know that we're living. But they don't know about their beginning. They don't know about their end, they don't know about their purpose. Yala Muna la homina.

00:45:18--> 00:45:43

They only know the apparent parts of the dunya, how to make money, how to dress up, how to travel, where to go, where to invest, you understand what to study. This is all the apparent aspect of Estonia. They know a lot about that. But when it comes to the Acura, they're completely awful. They're completely lateral. They're completely unaware. And this is a state of who

00:45:44--> 00:45:48

this is data who the majority of the people.

00:45:49--> 00:46:36

If you think about it, these days, anything of dystonia, there is an expert of that science of that field, isn't it from wearing makeup? Do designing your house, do you know matching the colors, and so on and so forth to wearing the clothes, there is an expert of every single field, right? If you want to start a business, if you want to start an online business, if you want to start any kind of business, you have experts of those fields, and anytime you want to do if you want to start something, what do you do? You go to the experts, you hire a consultant. And what do they do? They guide you, they tell you do this? Don't do this, invest here, don't invest here, put in at least

00:46:36--> 00:46:41

this much money. Don't put in this much money. Don't waste your money on this, isn't it?

00:46:43--> 00:46:58

So great experts. But if you think about it, if you analyze their situation, their knowledge is limited to what only dystonia and only desired aspects of dystonia? They don't look at that, okay? Is it really going to be beneficial for you for the athlete or not?

00:46:59--> 00:47:29

Like for example, if you want to invest somewhere, you go ask an expert, they will tell you these days, you should invest in this. Why? Because this is a new business coming up. This is a new interest that people have. And if you invest your money in this, you will gain this much profit. But if you ask that, Helen, don't know, is it really going to benefit me my alpha, no idea for whom I'll athletico McAfee rune completely unaware completely negligent of the hereafter. And unfortunately, there are many Muslims like this as well.

00:47:30--> 00:47:42

That for example, if you want to buy a house, sell a house, they will come and give you great advice. Great advice. Don't sell right now. Sell within a month and see the profit that you make.

00:47:43--> 00:48:02

And don't sell your house like this. make these changes and see you get 20% more money. renovate your house, and every dollar you spend, you will get $2 in return, isn't it? They give you such great advice. Wow. Amazing. But at the same time, they're completely lawful of they're

00:48:03--> 00:48:17

completely lawful. Yala Muna, Zahara Minar hyah to dunya, Omani karate, whom off alone and unfortunately, this is the reality of most of the people, majority of the people.

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

And if you look at it, what is the source of their knowledge?

00:48:22--> 00:48:25

Whatever they know, of this dunya? What is the source of that?

00:48:26--> 00:48:40

observation, study, research, past experience, isn't it. So based on that, they have accumulated a lot of information, a lot of understanding. And based on that they will tell you whatever they tell you.

00:48:41--> 00:49:01

And with regards to this knowledge, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in sort of natural eye authority, that zandy come up with level human and this is the sum of their knowledge. This is the extent of their knowledge. That's all they know. That's all they know. But there is another source of knowledge. And what is that? revelation from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:49:02--> 00:49:39

Now, there are many people who know a lot about the dunya. But when it comes to the revelation that Allah subhanaw, taala has sent, what do they know? Hardly anything. They don't know much at all. And despite the fact that they're completely ignorant of the Quran, what do they consider themselves to be? experts, extremely knowledgeable, great academics. People really respect them, they look up to them. But what do we see that if a person only has knowledge of this dunya then that knowledge is what law him? It's not this it's incomplete, it's deficient.

00:49:40--> 00:49:50

And only when a person has the knowledge of Deen the knowledge of Quran the knowledge of the law, then his knowledge is worth something. Then it means something.

00:49:51--> 00:49:54

Yala Muna Zohar, Amina hyah to dunya

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

karate homophone and why is it that the knowledge of the deen is important?

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

Because that is what tells you about your origin and your destination.

00:50:05--> 00:50:24

That is what tells you where you're from, where you're going to What's your purpose, What's your goal. This is what God tells you about. And the rest of the knowledge, it will not tell you, no matter how much research you do, no matter how much study you do, you will never find these answers. They are the Mona Lisa Hiromi, they're hired to do near

00:50:25--> 00:50:26

karate homework.

00:50:28--> 00:51:03

That's the point of saying this is not to undermine the knowledge of this dunya know that knowledge is also important. Why? Because of a person is living in this dunya needs to know about that. If you don't know what to eat, if you don't know what's good for you, what's bad for you? What's the nutritional value of something and what is the health benefit of something? You know, there's a difference when you know and when you don't know, isn't it? So, this knowledge is necessary, but remember that the knowledge of this dunya the law had knowledge of this dunya that is what it brings only temporary benefit

00:51:04--> 00:51:14

and the knowledge of the era. That is what brings a person eternal benefit. Long Lasting benefit. Never Ending benefit.
