Hello, I'm Alan Levine. avala muma fill out the jamir on and if those who did wrong had all that is inbhir jamir on entirely who are alerting Allah? What's the greatest injustice ship? But his ship the only one? No. [???] is low, but it is not the only zone. So alladhina Lala Moo yes, it does refer to a Lydian ashinoko but not only a lady national.
Do you understand? What else is? What else is injustice? Go for one caffee una homopolymer. Okay, gopher is one. But it's COVID the only one? No, there are others as well. So besides shirk, and kufr, what else is on? What else is injustice? What does one mean that really knocks to reduce in the right of the other. So what else is included?
in gratitude, being ungrateful to Allah, facade fill out, not giving rights of the relatives,
piano, treachery breaking promises, to give less in measure, right to cheat one another. So there are different types of law. So those people who have done all those people who have committed injustice, whether this injustice is against a law or against other people, because the one who does well the one who commits injustice, he will be in Zulu, Max, on the day of judgment, the person who commits injustice, he will suffer its consequences in the hereafter. So those who have done soul, if they had murfin, RPG, mimiron whatever that is in the earth, jamir and all of it, if they were given everything that is in this dunya and not just everything in this dunya but we're mitla humara, who,
and similar to it, along with it. So twice the earth, twice everything that is in the earth, double that amount. Just imagine, left that there will be they would surely give it in ransom, Minh suella other from evil punishment when yom Okayama on the Day of Judgment, on the day of standing,
on the day when everyone will stand before Allah, on the day when every person will be given the account of his deeds, the person who has done so, when he sees his final outcome, if he had the entire Earth, in fact double of it, he will be ready to give everything up in order to save himself from the punishment of the Hellfire
from evil consequences on that day
webador home and it appeared to them, but from the room cutters, bell well we do, what does that mean? To come to view to become a parent to become obvious to come to light.
So, it will appear for them mean a lot he from Allah man lumea Qunu Yatta see boon that which they never use to consider that which they never used to anticipate, which they never took into account. Yesterday wound is from if they serve and if the service to imagine to expect do anticipate so they never expected they never thought they never took into consideration that this will happen. So Oba della whom Minna la he, from Allah, something will come to them which they never expected. And what is that? His anger, his punishment, the recompense that he will give them
because they lived a life of heedlessness in dystonia.
Never thinking about the consequences of the wrongdoings that they're busy performing. So on the Day of Judgment, when the deeds will come into view, and the punishment will be brought before the person he will be sentenced to the punishment. And when he sees the justice of Allah, which he never ever expected, when he will see the punishment and realize that it's inevitable, he will wish to give up anything to free himself anything, even if it is the entire earth and twice it's like an ultra in the Quran. What do we learn that a person will be willing to give up? How much the Earths fill in gold?
In throw earlier, Milan is 91 we learn in a Latina cafe Woman to Woman coffee, filling up element I had him mill early to heaven. What are ways that he will ecola whom either will eliminate one or luminosity that indeed those who disbelieve and die while they're disbelievers never would the whole capacity of the earth in gold be accepted from them.
Even if they offered the entire Earth filled with gold.
So basically everything that you see in this dunya in gold, if they were to offer that in order to ransom them.
selves, it would not be accepted, what is the show to us, that the entire earth and everything in it will be of no value to a person on the Day of Judgment, when he sees the punishment,
the entire Earth, everything in it, all of his possessions that were very dear to him, they will have absolutely no value, because he will be willing to give it up, he will be willing to give it up instantly. Take this just released me, take this just save me, don't send me to hellfire. Because there are the above the Hereafter is very great, it's very serious.
And the anger of along the Day of Judgment is also something very serious that we should be afraid of.
So when a person will see that when a person will witness that he will want to save himself and how will he try to do that, that if he was given the option that offered everything that you had offer the entire Earth, if he had the option of offering the entire earth and gold even still it would not be accepted.
So the earth and everything within it will become useless to a person on that day, it will have no value in His sight on that day, because he's willing to give it up. But it is surprising that today, we chase the same things.
We love the same things. And we prefer them above all of us.
The same things, same clothes, same money, same things that we love them so much, we adore them so much. We don't want to borrow it from them, we want to enjoy them all the time. But these same things will become meaningless,
meaningless. Because a person will say take it just leave me, but it will not avail him.
And these transitory things, they don't help a person in this dunya and they will not help him in the hereafter either. So many times Allah shows to us in this dunya your wealth cannot help you. It cannot save you, it cannot do anything for you.
And in the hereafter also, it cannot do anything for you. If you don't have the right actions with you,
what to whom, and they will appear to them say you are to my Casa boo, the evils that they had earned.
First of all, what will come to you what will become apparent to them? mean Allah He Myrna mucuna Yatta Cebu what they never anticipated? And what is that? judgment, accounting, punishment? Allah anger, they never imagined. They never took account of it. They never took it into consideration because of which they kept on following their desires, chasing their desires, ignoring Allah ignoring the hereafter. And secondly, what else will come to view what Allah whom say to Marcus,
the evil that they performed, that they acquired, the ad is the plural of the year. And the word ceja is used in two ways. First of all, ceja is used for the evil action that a person has performed. Why? Because every sin is evil, every sin is evil. Why?
Because it doesn't bring any benefit to a person. What does it bring to him? Only loss
it doesn't make him look good. But rather it only makes him look ugly. in the sight of Allah soprano without,
without him say he had to say that first of all refers to evil actions. And secondly, the ad also refers to the evil consequence of an action. Because in sort of the Shura, if 40 or loss pantherella says what does that say? He didn't say he didn't miss Lou her under retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it. So the desert of Serbia is what
do you say here is the action and say here is also the consequence, the bad and the bad result?
Because an evil deed will always bring an evil outcome.
So over their homestead to marketable marketable the actions that they acquired, so the actions themselves will become visible. And secondly, the consequences of those actions will also become visible.
Because in this scenario, what happens? We keep performing actions one after the other. And what do we forget to save actions? We do one thing and we forget that we have done it. We say a bad word and we forget that we have said it. Our PSA will level when a suhu. Allah has enumerated it, but they have forgotten it.
Do you remember everything that you've done? everything that you've said, No, we forget, we ignore, we overcome the wrong things that we have done. For some time we feel guilty. And after some time, we will back to how we were before. That feeling of guilt goes away.
But it doesn't mean that just because we have forgotten something. It's not there anymore. People may have forgotten but on the Day of Judgment, those
deeds will come into view, those deeds will become obvious.
And the thing is that when we forget our sins, we don't even see forgiveness for them, isn't it? Because if we remember them, then what will happen? We're sitting, we remember, all of a sudden, we will start doing is therefore we can ever sit idle. We could never said I will never. If we remembered our sins, we would seek forgiveness for them. And we would change our lives. But it's because we forget them. Because we belittle them. What's the reason for forgetting them, belittling them, thinking that it's not a big deal?
We forget them. This is why we don't seek forgiveness for them. And when a person has not sought forgiveness for them, then what will happen? those sins are still there in this record. And when they're still in his record, they will come to you on the Day of Judgment.
Because it's still far what does it do? Mattila Lazzara, what does it mean to cover? So when a person seeks forgiveness, his sins are covered.
Allah will not expose them, he will not show them because he has forgiven for them.
A day will mean a zombie come and lead them but who the one who repents from a sin is like the one who has not committed the sin. So when a person has sincerely repented from a sin, will that still be there in his record? It's removed, you can feel he will wipe off our food to wipe off. There's so many words for forgiveness, when a person seeks that forgiveness.
And when can a person seek forgiveness when he realizes the gravity of his sins?
But if a person does not realize the gravity of his sins, He will not even seek forgiveness for them. And when he does not seek forgiveness for them, they're still there. What about Allah whom say he added to my Gustavo, the evil that they performed, they will become visible to them. They will come right before them. They had forgotten them, but they're right before him. And not just the sense but also their consequences.
Also, their punishment webador let him say to my Casa boo. Well, how could it be him and it encircle them? What will encircle them? mokona v esterhazy own that which they used to mock,
meaning the same punishment, the same recompense the same hazard that they made fun of in the dunya. It will encircle them, they will not be able to escape it. Because how? What does it mean to surround something and descend on it? So when you surround and you descend on something, can it escape? It cannot. So McCann will be he has his own meaning the punishment that they used to mark at that same punishment is going to surround them and they will be unable to escape it.
And you see, when a person has this attitude of mockery, mocking other religion, then he belittles his sins as well, isn't it? He doesn't consider them to be great. This is why he has the confidence to make fun of the so when he's making fun, what does it show? He does not see his wrong as wrong and which is why he's not going to seek forgiveness. So what's the lesson in this ayah that we don't see our outcome today? We forget the actions that we have performed. But tomorrow this veil will be removed between us and between our actions between us and our outcome.
Just as a believer does not know the reward that Allah has prepared for him, for that Allah munaf Summa yellowman karate Aryan desert and the Macan, we are Milan. Similarly, a sinful person on the other hand does not know the punishment that is prepared for him.
The believer does not know why because Allah has kept it as a surprise. The sinful does not know why. Because he does not care. He does not think he never imagined he never even takes it into consideration.
In surah, tuna saya 30. We learn who Nikita boo coluna
there on that day, every soul will be put to trial for what it did previously. Every soul will be put to trial for what? For what?
The man is left for the actions that it did previously.
In Toronto, am I a 13 unit bowl in Sonoma isn't Bhima Adama what a holla men will be informed that day of what he sent ahead. And what he got back the actions that he performed in the actions that he neglected. Both he will be informed
in through the duckweed, Ira 14, early months not so much about every soul will know what it has brought with it.
In this dunya we forget, but in the hereafter we will come to know.
And if you think about it, what is mentioned over here Weber data homina, lovey mellem jaquan we have to see both the punishment that will come before them that they never imagined. They never imagined.
You seen this linear. If a person sees a crime scene, or the scene of a disaster, even men break down, isn't it? They start crying.
They get so much
affected by that they cannot keep those emotions inside and they burst out in tears. Why? Because the way somebody has been brutally killed, or the way so many people have been killed, or the way a building has collapsed and children have died, for example, that scene is so horrible, that a person cannot bear it. Imagine on the Day of Judgment, the punishment of the Hereafter is far greater. And when a person will see that, then what will happen, he will want to relieve himself of the punishment. But then nothing can help nothing at all.
No matter what he offers, no matter what he says, nothing can avail him.
So just as we learned earlier, that this life is limited, this life is for work, we should avail every moment, we should avail our lives for what purpose seeking forgiveness, not spending this time in disobeying Allah, but spending this time and doing something productive.
So that on the day of gentlemen, we don't have psychiat coming into view, but we have something else coming before us.
For either muscle insane alone. And when adversity touches men, when a person is afflicted by some, by some difficulty, what is his reaction? Then he calls upon us, he remembers as when do you call someone when you remember them? So when a person is afflicted by difficulty, their honor, he calls us, then he remembers us before that he had forgotten.
And isn't it true?
that many times we remember to pray to Allah, when we were afflicted with some difficulty.
We remember a lot we remember that hold on, we remember Salah when we are in difficulty, and when everything is fine. We don't remember him. For either muscle in Santa Barbara Donna, somebody the whole willner, who never met Amina, then when we grant him a favor from us, hawala from newsletters, ha, well, the wheel and the wheel is to give a favor to someone a blessing to someone what guide that which has to be taken care of looked after.
So it's not something small, but it's something major. Like for example, well, children, car, house, all of these things, you have to look after them. Food, on the other hand, you eat finished. But money you have to manage house, you have to manage, right, your clothes, even you have to look after them. This is what the wheel is. And when you own something like this, when you have something like this a chapter look after, don't you feel very important? Don't you feel you're in control. So look at the mercy of Allah, that Allah does not just remove the difficulty from a person, but he gives him a blessing, what kind of blessing that brings him happiness, that brings him confidence.
And the queen is also used for such a blessing, which when a person receives, it improves his date. So it's given for the betterment and progress of the person you get. So first of all, he has to manage it. Secondly, when he has it, his life would improve.
Like, for example, a person didn't have a car before. Okay, now, Allah gave him a car. So what does it mean he has to look after the car, but at the same time, it is a means of his advancement, isn't it, he owns a car now he's an owner. It's such a blessing that is given for the betterment and progress of the person. And it's also the wheel is also to give something out of sheer kindness to someone.
So, so my either one now who never met him when he did not remember Allah, he was afflicted by some difficulty. Then he began calling upon Allah, Allah removed that difficulty, gave him a blessing, gave him confidence, out of sheer kindness to him, it improved his condition. So what's the reaction of a person called an intimate UI to who?
He says, indeed, I have been given this because of knowledge. What is the mean by this? I have been given this because of knowledge, whose knowledge whose knowledge, my knowledge, meaning I have acquired it myself, I have gained it myself. He doesn't even remember to thank Allah. And he begins to show off before the show after blessing and show off his knowledge that look, I am so clever. I'm so intelligent. I'm so smart.
That I managed to get this myself. Nobody told me. I got it myself.
And if you think about it, many times, it happens with the person that he finds a good deal. Or he gets a promotion. What did you think of that time? I was so clever. I went to that website. I was so intelligent. I met that person. I spoke to him. I have so many links. This is why I got this good deal. But think about it. Who gave you that opportunity?
did not give the same opportunity to someone else. Somebody gave that opportunity to you, isn't it? Who gave that opportunity to you a loss of paradise? Because sometimes it happens that in a crowd of people, you meet someone who helps you get a job somewhere who helps you get a promotion somewhere. Now, what are the odds of meeting that person in a gathering of 200 people? very less. But who is it that created that opportunity for you that you said at the same table, or somebody introduced him to you or you to him? Or you bumped into him? And as a result, you had a conversation? who provided you with that opportunity? Almost a penalty. So yes, okay. Was your resume? Yes, okay. You also have
done a lot of work, you have those skills, you have that education, you have that certification, but who gave you the opportunity along? But what does this person say in number 82? Who I let in? I have been given this because of my knowledge, I am clever, I am smart, I'm intelligent. Secondly, this has also been understood as that innama ot to Allah or am, I have been given this because of knowledge whose knowledge, knowledge of Allah, which knowledge that Allah knows that I deserve it. Allah knows that I deserve it. It's the height of ingratitude. I deserve it. Because who says that you deserve it? How is it that you deserve it, but somebody else does not deserve it? Somebody gave
it to you. So he becomes so ungrateful that he forgets the difficulty that he was in that Allah took him out of, he forgets the blessing that a lot gave him, but it gives credit to himself in them ot to Allah. Allah says, belia fitna, rather it is a trial, what is a trial? this blessing that he has received is in reality, a fitna, it's a test, the snare ma is a test. He has been given it not because he deserves it. But he has been given this blessing because he is being tested.
This is a test of what of gratitude, a test of belief that does he give credit where credit is due? Does he increase in his faith and humility and gratitude before Allah? Or does he become proud? While he efforts? Well, I can acara home lay on the moon. But most of them they do not know most people do not know that blessings in reality are a test. We think blessings are in. But Allah says the blessing is
it's empty hand. It's a test. And we think that they are only for our enjoyment. Yes, Allah has given blessings to us for our enjoyment for our use, but at the same time, it's a test. So they might notice like, What did he say? hadn't been probably it'll be the abalone ash guru. And this is from the favor of Allah, he's testing me whether I am grateful or ungrateful.
Or the color hella determined cobbling him, those before them had already said it, or the color hair, what does I refer to this kalama such words of unbelief, such words of ingratitude that innama ot to Allah in
the same words, the people before also said them?
For example, Who said this?
He said the exact same words. And so to us is 78. We learned Allah in number 82 elements are in the that he said, I was only given it because of knowledge I have in my UI to Allah illman are in the same words, are the color Latina and covenant him. But what happened?
From Elena and Homer? Can we accept,
then what they acquired what they earned, it did not avail them at all. All the wealth, they had amassed all the blessings they had, they could not help them against the punishment of
he said, I deserve it. He said, I got this myself. Okay, if you got this yourself, you have control over it and try to save yourself through it. Can you save yourself you cannot? from our own home? Or can we actually boot because what happened for herself now be the earth swallowed him. And it also swallowed his entire wealth from our own our own home okonomiyaki born. So the blessings that they had amassed in this dunya did not avail them against the punishment of Allah.
The thing is that most of the times the blessings that a person receives in this dunya he never thinks that they are in reality, it just,
this is why he gets lost in love. This is why he becomes proud of
every blessing is a test,
every single blessing.
But what do you do? How do you behave? How do you react?
Do you only complain?
Or do you look at the positive side? Do you increase in your gratitude in your humility? Or do you become boastful and arrogant and you begin to show off? Do you share that blessing? Or do you hoard that lesson? What's your reaction? What do you do?
This is the test with every single blessing.
And the more blessings a person has, the more tests he has to go through. As the blessings increase, the tests also increase. This is why a person must remember, whenever he receives a blessing that this blessing is a test. Because when he looks at the blessing with this point of view, then what will happen? It will help him keep his feet on the ground. It will help him stay humble. It will not lead him to showing off. It will not lead him to disobey Allah soprano. It will keep him human, it will keep him servant of Allah.
And every time we receive a blessing, we should tell ourselves my test has begun now.
say Alhamdulillah don't start to be negative, that whole No, our test has gone. No, be happy, be grateful. But be conscious, Be alert that you are being tested.
And when you stay conscious when you stay alert, then only can you remain obedient. But what does Allah say what I cannot call an se, nyan will be most people don't know. Which is why NIOSH guru they're not grateful.
Because the first step is what realization you have to realize Only then can you be grateful if you don't realize how can you be grateful? impossible for us over whom, so it reached them say to Makkah Sabu, the evils of what they had acquired the people of the past when they said such arrogant statements, such arrogant words in my ot to Allah. What happened? Did Allah leave them? No. For asaba homes, the ultimate Casa boo, the evil deeds that they acquired their consequences reach them.
They suffered their consequences,
isn't it so? So what does it show to us? That when a person becomes arrogant, is not spared. When a person becomes ungrateful, he's not forgiven. For our father whom say to my Casa boo, he will see the ultimate end of his ingratitude. Allah gives him respect he's not caught immediately instantly. But eventually, a person is shown the consequences of his action.
When Nadine avala moment her hula, and as for those people who do learn from among these four among these meaning, how will I primarily refer to the wish to gain of Makkah? So one Latina girl or woman, how Allah Isa you sleep with him say to my Casa boo, very soon the evils which they have done, those evils will also reach them, meaning the evil consequence will also reach these people.
Because the machine of Makkah enjoyed many blessings of Allah. maka, if you think about it, what grows there nothing. But still, they were provided with someone else. from all over Arabia, outside of Arabia, people will bring some a lot to
the people of Morocco were honored, they were respected.
Morocco was a safe haven, no one could harm them. No one could injure them. No one could attack them. It was safe. It was a secure place, well respected. But despite that, when it came to the worship of Allah when it came to thanking Allah, they were big failures that when Allah alone was mentioned, they became upset.
Yesterday, they were arrogant. So I must point out it says over here that when Medina Wallah moment her Allah so you see what i'm saying to my Casa boo, that those present today even if they have been arrogant, if they have been ungrateful, even they will be punished, they will not be spared, just as the people have passed or punished. People of today will also be if they have the same attitude, woman whom be more dizzy, and they cannot at all, escape. They cannot at all, frustrate the plan of Allah weaken the plan of Allah, that just because so many years have gone by, and they have become more advanced technologically in so many different ways. So they can save themselves. No, Allah
shows it to us even in the dunya the people who are so advanced they have every technology of this dunya but what happens to them? Within minutes, everything has gone
within minutes. One disaster, one earthquake. What happens? God finished huge buildings that were constructed there were powerful, huge factories and plants. They have so much strength, so much power, but everything is gone. And economy finished. doesn't ever show this to us. doesn't he? So many times I'll show this to us. So my homie mortgages mean, just because you're living in today's world, and you think you're very intelligent and smart and you can save yourself. Know, when a loss punishment comes. It does not spare anyone
around what happened to him instead it'll cost us I 81 we learn for herself nabby he will be dead he Alba for Canada hoomin finnian sorona hoomin dunlea one Academy in a Montessori and we cause the earth to swallow him and his home. And there was for him no company to aid him other than Allah. No
Was he of those who could defend themselves? He could not even defend himself.
So what does it show to us? That the end of ingratitude of Cuba is horrible?
The person turns away from Allah. He can never be successful. Never.
If a person does not have the right priorities, he can never be successful. If a person does not love a lot, most he can never be successful.
If a person does not give the right of Allah, he can never be successful. He can be humiliated, disgraced any moment.
lm er lembu Do they not know, unknown Lucha was autores Kalima Yasha way aka that Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it. But when it comes to the matter of risk, it's an ullas control. He can give to whomsoever whatsoever he wills, He can give a lot to one person, and he can give less to one another. This is based on what allows decision that is based on his wisdom, and the law high episodes of this quality mania shot way up in the feed ellika. As you may know, indeed, in that our science for people who believe
what science that if a person has something, he should realize it's from Allah. It's not because of his own achievement. Rather, it's a gift of Allah.
So don't forget to give her Don't forget the winner and don't forget them or sin, give credit where credit is due.
What other sign is there in this that underlie absorb the risk Ali Manisha Where could that Allah gives more to some less to others?
That if Allah gives more to some less to some, what is that show that he can also take it away? When he gives? He can also take it away. So if a person has been given something, does he have the right to be arrogant? Does he have the right to forget Allah? No, he doesn't. Because Allah can take it away and you die.
So blessings are a test.
Can we listen to the recitation of these is
a long way and tell us
so you won't see coletti Come on
we're either lucky
Believe it or not.
Bomi you mean?
I am number 49, I was just thinking about mahometan mina
has already made it so clear that whatever we have, it's been nice for us. I mean whatever we have, it's from, it's not from us at all, no matter how much effort we put in it, still, we can say that we deserve it. Because there are others as well Who put in so much effort, but they don't necessarily get it. They're trying so hard, but only when Allah gives to a person, then he can get it.
I was thinking that, like the part of sleeping, how it's like, our souls are taken away every night. So we should have real in the car every single day. Because just reflect before you see what you have done during the day, or throughout the week, at least. And when you think as to how you're gonna hope that Allah is gonna forgive you, even if you don't wake up. But if you assume that he I'm gonna be awake the next day, then you won't take his car seriously, you will deliver everything and you never know if you're gonna wake up or not. And every time you fall asleep, think about it. What if I don't?
What if I don't wake up? What guarantee Do I have. So when a person sleeps in this state, With this in mind, then he will wake up when it's time to wake up. He will not keep pressing snooze, he will not keep delaying. But he will
also think of risk 49. And what I learned was that we should remember like every situation, even if it's bad or good, whatever it is, we should turn to a look. And good times we have to be thankful. And that's the test when it comes to that we should not only like in this verse, Allah says, there must
not only interpret also good times,
because what is mentioned in this is that when he lifted by some difficulty, hardship, he remembers us. But then when he experiences something good, he forgets a lot, he becomes so proud and arrogant, that He gives the entire credit to himself. So this is a problem in good times, forgetting a lot and only in bad times, remembering anybody else.
We always wish that only if I had another chance. We do have another chance every single day we're given a new life. So we have to take that.
Exactly. Every day is like a new life that we have been given. So it's never too late to do anything to start anything.
The reason behind zoo is the love of the things and dystonia. A person will deprive another of what he deserves. Why because he wants to keep it to himself. But the same thing you will want to give it up in order to save yourself on that day.
So what's more important, the thing or your life, your life, your success, your salvation.
Can we listen to the recitation of these
panicle mahone will be Ambika Masha de la ilaha illa Anta Mustapha Luca I said I'm already camera
