Al-Waqiah 1-40 Tafsir 10-14
And then was Serbia tuna, Serbia clone and the foreigners, the foreigners, those who are ahead will be those who are ahead on that day as well. A savvy con, a savvy tune Allah says about them Allah equal, macabre boon. Those are the ones who are brought near brought near to who to a loss.
If you think about it, the three groups are mentioned over here first as horrible name and then as horrible Mashallah, and then a semicolon?
Are these three groups mentioned in order of their rank? No, they're not mentioned in order of their bank or their marriage, in terms of reward in their bank in the sight of a loss of data.
The people have the right are mentioned first. Why? Because they are between the people of the left and the cybercrime in terms of their bank.
And the Serbia corner mentioned right at the end, Why? So that their reward there description can come first. You understand?
At the beginning, in this surah, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about what three groups there are. And then he tells us about each and every single one of them, what will their fate be in the hereafter? What will they experience? So the savvycard? I mentioned at the end, not because they are lowest in their rank, No, in fact, they're the highest in their rank. They're mentioned last why because their description comes first.
Exactly. When you hear about the people of the right and the people of the left, then you wonder, but it was said as virgin karratha. So what is that third category? All of a sudden you're interested about that. And then they are as if at the top. You know, when there's a first second third, the first one is always at the top and the second is on the right. And the third is on the left, isn't it? So the first one is always at the top. So all the attention can go here. A savvy Kuhn was savvy Kona Serbia Khun
a Sami Hoon is a plural of Serbian a new sabich one who gets ahead.
The one who was at the front the foreigner,
the preceding ones
who are the savvy Hoon? Those who are foremost those who are ahead in doing good.
So those who are ahead in doing good What is the last panel gotta say about them?
Why is the savvy who mentioned twice for two reasons. First of all, the repetition is to emphasize their exalted status. acerbic una Sabu. What does it show their exalted status
it has also been said that a Serbian goon
acerbic on the second side of the coin is a hugger.
That the sabich on Indonesia will be Sadiq Khan, in the
those who are savvy acun in doing good, will be savvy hone in getting reward as well.
Those who are ahead of others and doing good, they'll be ahead of others in winning as well. In receiving rewards as well, in receiving distinguished positions in the hereafter as well.
They were far ahead of others
in the dunya they'll be far ahead of others in the hereafter as well.
Was Samuel Kuhn, a savvy co
owner economics macabre boon those are the ones who are brought near brought near to who to Allah subhanho
wa Taala born Florida macabre one was brought very close so they will be brought very close to Allah. What does it mean by this, they'll be brought very close to Allah. This means that they will be in the highest level of Paradise
because the highest level of Paradise is closest to the ocean.
Above it is what the ocean isn't.
So acerbic una servicon Ola economy Academy qaboun
if you think about it, a lot of pantalla mentions their location first. And then he describes their home their abode, because in the following I add, the reward will be mentioned.
So their location is mentioned first and what is their location? near a law close door.
It is said in the Arabic language, a job cabinet.
Your neighbor comes before your home.
Meaning if you have a good neighbor, then you're good at a good house and a bad neighbor. And you're not in a good shape at all. Before you get a house. What should you look at the neighborhood, isn't it that matters more than the house itself.
The location is most important. This is why we see over here with an economic boon, the location is mentioned first because they'll be brought very close to one law. Very close to a law. And we see that the wife of her own what their art achievement will be Binney Lee, are in Dhaka vatan Filton I want to house near you are in Dhaka near you because Corp to Allah closeness to Allah that is the greatest blessing. creators blessing that a person can have.
It's the greatest achievement that one can have.
So oli mukava born, this is the best reward they will get. This is why it's mentioned first fija net in their EME in the Gardens of Pleasure,
Jeanette this macabre bone they'll be close to Allah And where will they be in genetics and these genetics, how does the law describe them? Jeanette have a name? What does he mean? Pleasure, comfort, happiness, delight.
And what is that delight? What is that comfort? What No, I have seen no ear has heard, nor has it ever crossed the heart of any person.
This is the Noreen and also if you see the gardens are given the description of Noreen Why? Because gender is all about enjoyment. Gender is all about pleasure.
It's all about comfort. It's all about delight. And the delight of gender is not just physical, meaning it's not just of the body, but it's also of the
there will be no aim of burden as well as their aim of the color of the heart. This is why we see that when the descriptions of gender are mentioned, what is mentioned that the people will be use Kona, you'll be given to drink this is what the pleasure of the body
you have known there'll be adorned This is again pleasure of the body. Right similar to yell bassoon. They will wear this is pleasure of the body. Fat you have fruit. The food is mentioned the company has mentioned Why? Because this is all physical. Bettany, pleasure Bettany enjoyment. But this is not the only enjoyment that exists in general. There's also the convenience
we which is why we learned that the people of general what will they be gifted with? You know being able to see a loss
because this will bring them happiness, such happiness that will become visible on their faces as well. Because each time that people have general will see or know what will happen. They'll become more beautiful.
So genetic Neri all of our agenda is just pleasure and comfort. There is no discomfort in general. What it learned them in Allahu Akbar, in certain insan 11 we learned that follow call whom Allahu shuttler Danica Leone Wanaka, whom napolitan was surah that Allah would protect them from the evil of that day and he will give them radiance and happiness, radiance brightness on the face. When does a person have that when he's happy?
Physically as well as in his heart and happiness. When is the person happy when he's happy at heart when he's comfortable in body? So both types of happiness both types of pleasure and comfort will be engine and the best of all, looking at Allah what Atlanta mean Allahu Akbar.
But who is this for?
Who is this for? The savvy Khun has a question is Who are the surgical.
Allah says they are sunlighten men and women. They are a large company of the former people's work arena, meaning a theory and a few of the later people's solar.
Solar is from the reflector style and lamp. And solar is a jamara is a group of
countable unlimited numbers, meaning a huge group of people. You cannot count them.
You can only estimate their numbers. You understand?
Like for example, that Hodge doll was an estimate, isn't it? These many people were there they can ever have an exact number of the Hajaj, right? This is what solar a huge group, massive group. And literally the word solar is used for a heap of will will if you try to count the fibers, can you do that? It's impossible. Impossible. So huge group. Okay, so it gives a meaning of cathro
Then the word Zola is also used for just a group, not necessarily a huge one, but just a group over here, however, so that gives meaning of a large company, a big group of the subclone are who are willing of the first ones. And the savvy one, there are only a few from the athlete, the later ones, but the question is, who are the first ones and who are the major ones?
So I said that a welline refers to those people that came into this dunya from the time of otherwise center up to the time of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So out of the previous oma
and the acid in the later ones who does it refer to the oma of Hamilton?
So a lot of the people a big group will be from who from the previous generations? And compared to them less from who, from the last oma?
Why is this so? Because the number of the people of the past is much more. However, there's a hadith that tells us that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to his companions, I hope that you will be half of the people of Jenna.
So this is why some scholars have said that a welline does not refer to the previous moment. avidin does not refer to the last oma. However, a welline refers to a welline from every oma and alkylene refers to ethylene from every oma.
You understand that when a Prophet came to any nation, there were those who were with him, those who responded to him, right, those who accompanied him.
And then after them, a new generation came after them, a new generation came, right. So from the early generations, more will be of the same vehicle and from the later generations, less will be
just like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, hydrocone karney sama, Latina Luna home, so Medina, Luna home, that the best people are my generation, then those who follow them, then those who follow them.
And if you think about it, the way the Sahaba were the way the Type your inward the way the WWE inward. As time went by one generation after the other hasn't the level of Eman of people, the level of their Amazon, the level of their sincerity, the level of their dedication has been reduced over time,
hasn't it, of course, the efforts that the people of the past put in our efforts the same today. No. People in the past, if they wanted to learn one Hadees, they wanted to learn one Hadees. First of all, they wanted to learn, we don't even want to learn it's being spoon fed to us, we don't want to take it. They wanted to learn. And if they wanted to learn, they would travel from place to place, they would spend whatever they had,
we learned about scholars who spent everything they had just so that they could travel so that they could learn to the point that even you know in your house, the ceiling, the wooden pieces that you put in the ceiling, and the metal pieces that you connect them with, they sold those even so that they could get some money so that they could travel.
their efforts were much more. This is why Allah says select a willing worker Illumina.
And if you think about it, initially, initially, when people accept or when the messenger came, and the people believed
the work of the dean at its initial stages is always very difficult,
isn't it? Because you have less resources? And you have more challenges? And you don't have a previous example,
isn't it? This is why it's always difficult to start something new.
So those who do it, how do they do it?
How do they do it? with sincerity and dedication. their level of Eman is much higher, their commitment is much greater, their sacrifices much greater.
They have a sense of ownership, a sense of pride of what they do. And the people who come later, they get everything. You know pre made, everything is ready from before. They don't have to put in as much effort. They haven't earned it. This is why their level of commitment and dedication is also not the same. Isn't the top you may have seen this in various places. You know, I see this institute even and I look back just six years ago, five years ago when it initially started the people how they used to work that you know just as you look after your own house, that Okay, why is this box over here? Why is there tissue over here? Why is this chair not straight? They would fix every
little thing. Why? Because they put their own money. They put their own time.
They came and cleaned themselves. They came and put the curtains themselves, they came and put the shutters themselves, they came and arrange the chairs themselves, every single thing. What happens to us we walking into an institute, everything is ready from before. Yeah, it's somebody else's job. Not my duty, isn't it? So obviously, the work is different. Right? The commitment is different. The dedication is different. The way they own it, we don't perhaps the way they love it, we don't perhaps. So this is why Allah says similar to a wehlener colino minella. Hurry. This is why the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Can anyone take their level? Can anyone come up to their
level? They cannot. Because what they spent in the way of Allah, they spent with utmost sincerity. Because when they were spending, they didn't know if Islam was going to be victorious or not. They didn't know when they were going to the book, and they had limited resources, did they know they were going to be victorious? Did they know that someday they were going to see the victory of Rome, they can, and many of them didn't, in fact.
So whatever they spent in the way of Allah, it was spent with utmost dedication with utmost sincerity.
Similarly, if you think about companions, who died at birth, who became Muslim in Makkah,
and they did not even see the victory of Makkah didn't even see the conquest of Makkah.
But the dedication and sincerity with which they worked, with which they supported the profits on a lot of centers, that cannot be compared to anyone else's
solar terminal awali. This is why the majority of the savvycard will be from which people, the first ones, the majority of the Cybertron, from the earlier generations, those who were sabich, those were a well, and a few from where from the
people, when they're spoon fed, when they're given everything, then they don't value what they have, when they don't value what they have. Obviously, their efforts are not going to be the same.
Initially, because of the difficulties you face, because the challenges you face, the demand is much stronger.
And then when things become normal, what happens to a person who becomes complacent it becomes okay. No big deal. Right. So, when there is difficulty, when there is hardship, when a person has to put an effort, sincerity is there.
Now with regards to the side recording,
because this is most important group, right, and this is what we must strive to be as well. Just because we're not of the earlier generations doesn't mean we don't have any opportunity at all we do.
Because Sabbath is who one who gets ahead, right? One who gets ahead of all
of others. In what, in doing good.
That when other people aren't doing it, he's the one who's doing it.
when no one's doing it, he's the one to start it. when no one's getting up, he is the one to get up.
When it's completely forgotten and ignored.
When people have forgotten about it, he is the one who revives it.
You don't like reviving a sooner that has been forgotten how much reward it has. Why? Because this is what subpar is. Nobody is doing it. You're the one to do it.
Typically, what do we do when everybody's doing it? That's when we get encouraged. Right? That's also good, okay, you're doing good. But the level of those people who start doing good when no one's doing it, their level is much higher, because their sacrifice is greater.
We don't want to do something simply because we say no one's doing it. Nobody does it in my family. This is something that is not done in our family. But this is why Allah subhanaw taala appreciate the cyber code so much because they were the first ones to do it. They were the ones who struggle the most. This is why Allah subhanaw taala will take them first agenda as well.
Now with regard to this article in some scholars have said that it includes those who are cervical illan, massage and encourage feasibility and they're
the first one is to go to the mosque, to pray. And the first one is to go out in the way of Allah, meaning whenever there is a call, whether it is the call to pray, or it is the call to go out in the way of a lot. They're the first ones to respond.
They're the first ones to say yes, I'm coming.
You understand? Yes, I'll do it. Whenever something is asked whenever something is requested, they're the first ones to come up to show up.
That Okay, is anybody else agreeing with anyone else doing it? Okay, they're doing it. I'll do it. But they're doing it I don't have to do it No.
Sir we're gonna who the first to go to the massages and the first to go out in the way of en la.
Similarly, it has been said that Sadiq Khan refers to those of the insider mojarra, who prayed in the direction of the two quibblers Why? Because they were on the early generations, right? Similarly, those who were the foremost and doing digital,
they were the first digital because when it comes to doing hated again, nobody's done before you it's difficult. Right? So we're savvy clone, a savvy clone,
una eiken macabre, Boone, fija, nurettin. Noreen.
Why? Because they got ahead in doing good deeds, whether it is or bad,
whether it is act of worship, or it is dealing with other people dealings with other people or it is giving sadaqa giving Zakat, performing any ritual performing any act of worship, whether it is Salah or Hajj, any act of worship, acerbic, una who those who don't delay,
those who don't delay in fulfilling their obligations. Those who don't delay in repenting those who don't delay in helping others. But what do they do? They get up first.
They don't wait for others, they get up first themselves, they don't procrastinate rather than race ahead. We have learned in sort of factor is 32 to 33 that some LSL keytab and Latinas for feta mean are bad enough, I mean home, lemon enough See, women home knocked us a woman home, Santa COVID hierachy.
Osaka, Mila, once raised a hand in doing good that whenever there's an opportunity, get up and do it. Don't wait for others. And don't delay either. These are two things that contradict some What? Waiting for others and delaying procrastinating. Being a Sabbath is what as soon as the opportunity comes before you do it.
Do it Don't delay. Like the learn who? What was his way? When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him about his prophethood? What was the reaction of Abu Bakar? who believed instantly?
When he was informed about the insula and Mirage, what was his reaction of the stick? Immediately he did this thing when it came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam telling him about hijra that he was going to do his role with Abu Bakar.
Did he say no? He cried out of happiness.
He cried out of happiness.
Then in Medina, every battle, any sacrifice who was at the front, who was the first one to do it, and we were kind of disappointed or muddled in our home, which we will try to compete with him. And at the expedition to the book, what happened with avocado, the man who brought everything that he had said that said, I knew I could never outrun him.
He's always the first one.
And you see over here was sabya, cone acerbic cone, meaning those who are ahead, they're the ones who are ahead.
You understand those who get up first, those who initiate those who set the trend? They're the ones who are always ahead.
Do you get it? Those who are the first ones to do the work? They're the ones who will be at the top as well, it's understood, it doesn't happen by chance.
It doesn't happen by chance, just by luck, that a person is the first one to show up. He's the first one to do something, it doesn't happen by chance, how does it happen?
When a person has that attitude of being the first one,
because remember that expression, your attitude determines your altitude.
If you have that attitude of doing things immediately, if you have that attitude of wanting to be the first one, then what will happen? You will be the first one, nobody else will be ahead of you.
Why is it that the dough field was given to a backhoe dealer who every time? Why?
Because he had that attitude?
Right. He was always the first one. So when he was always the first one Allah subhanaw taala always given to feel to be the first one.
What do we think for me to be first, everybody else has to stop. right for me to do something. Other people have to fall back. No, it doesn't happen like that. You don't have to move other people out of the way.
Allah will make you the first one. If you want to be the first one.
If you show it with your actions if you prove it with your dedication so
Was Sabbath on a cervical? Those who are foremost are always foremost. What do we learn about massage listening? Or due to a lack of big data? Why did he go first before the entire nation data? What does it show that the more a person wants to please Allah,
the more effortless he has,
the more ahead he will be of other people.
Sincerity is what leads to being the first one.
And when a person is doing something just because everybody's doing does, because you're supposed to do it, yesterday, get over it. And obviously, you're not going to be the first one to get it.
When a person wants to gain the pleasure of Allah, He will be the first one to do it.
The more love the more sincerity, the more greed he has for reward,
the more desire he has for success,
the more ahead he will be of others.
And this is an entire way of life, you know that there's an entire way of life. It's the attitude of a person, it's not just limited to certain things. No, this shows when a person prays. This shows when a person submits their assignment. This shows when a person comes to class, this shows when a person gets up to help someone.
This shows in every aspect of life. Because when a person wants to be the first one, then he sees opportunities. And when a person thinks, oh, it's gonna get done anyway, somebody else will do it, then he won't even notice the opportunity.
Once I was sitting somewhere in somebody's office, this lady came, she saw dust on the table. And she immediately, you know, brought paper or something and she wiped it clean.
There are many other people sitting over there. Many other people and my mom, she was there. And she said, why is it that you saw the dust? And nobody else did?
Other people saw it. But what did you think? Somebody else will do it?
She saw it. And what did she think I should do it? It should not be dirty. This office should not be dusty. So without passing a comment without saying anything without scolding anyone. Without putting other people down. She just got up herself. Quickly, one broad paper wiped clean. has finished sabich owner saga cone? And if we're just waiting, or is there any work? Could you please tell me? Then it doesn't happen like that? Right? What do we want, we want to be called? We want to be invited. But the thing is that if you want to do something, you'll see the opportunity.
When a person is called, then he is noticed. And when a person does not call, he feels he's not noticed, right? But a person who wants to be noticed in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala, what will he do? He will do the work whether somebody calls him or doesn't call him, he will initiate things, he will come up with ideas, he will come up with things to do. He will not just wait for other people to do it. You know, sometimes I wonder if there's so many of us over here. So many of us. Still there's so much work that needs to be done. Why is it that a lot of things are not going on? Why? Because people they keep thinking, we know it's not my job, it's somebody else's job, somebody
else will do it, somebody else will call me somebody else will ask me. Whereas there's so many things that can be done.
You know, if you go to a high school, if you go to a university, students have these groups, and they have different projects that they're working on different groups, right. And they will work together they will promote something. But why is it that such things are not done here? Isn't there a need? There is their youth groups? There are so many different types of support groups. Why is it that we don't do it? Why is it that we don't become creative when it comes to this thing? Because we think somebody else will do it.
No one's starting it when somebody starts I will join. Why don't you take the lead? Why don't you come up with creative ideas? Why don't you come up with something? Why don't you come up with a plan? But unfortunately, sometimes people have to be bad. Please, please, please do this. Please, please please do that.
servicon don't need to be called.
They don't need to be told.
They don't need to be informed. They will find a way and they will do something.
So we're savvy con. A savvy con This is why Allah eco macabre boon. They're the ones will be brought in here.

Listen to the recitation and then we'll continue.
either work or at
Boost setting G.
What else have we missed? Mm hmm.
issue, think about it, what is it that stops us? That prevents us from getting ahead or from doing something first? Or from doing something exactly when it's supposed to be done? What is it that makes us delay?
Because we don't understand the value of it. What else?
Because we think we have time later to do it.
Okay, we're looking for just our own personal benefit. If we don't see it, we don't do it.
Fear of failure? Okay.
How can we think we're not able to do it?
We don't really want it as badly as we say, we want it What else?
We think Oh, nevermind, I'll do something else. If I lose opportunities, something else will come my way. And I will do that.
Fear of responsibility.
We think we're already maxed out.
Fear of people sometimes Yes.
Okay, we don't want to try something new.
being busy with dunia very true.
Fear of commitment. There are many reasons. And sometimes if you think about it, it's just that the situation is not ideal.
We think we're maxed out, we think we're too tired. I'm not in the right mood right now. I don't feel like it.
We wait for the ideal situation.
We wait for our body to feel perfectly fine. No headaches anywhere, no problem anywhere. And if there is a slightest problem, even we will stop, we will not do what we have to do.
Similarly, we want everyone support.
We want the work to be easy. But the thing is, this is what makes us different. The savvy home Don't wait for the situation to become ideal. They don't wait for their body to cooperate with them.
They don't wait for everyone to support them.
They don't wait for their mood to be very good. No. What do they do? Whatever has to be done whenever it has to be done.
So sometimes it's just about doing a little bit of work such as replying to an email or doing something small. When it's important to you, you'll do it you want to wait for the situation to become perfect.
And sometimes we tell ourselves, I cannot do it. I cannot give a talk. Therefore I won't even start it. But how do you know? How do you know that you won't be able to give the Hulk
always think of it like this If Allah has brought the opportunity before you huh? Then if you started a lot will also teach you
what the cola when you are limo common law. Allah will teach you alone show you the way.
And it's amazing how sometimes you start something small. And from there something bad can happen. Right?
Like, for example, the way this institute also started. It was our summer break. And obviously my mom didn't want us to be
Free doing nothing
$100 for that. So what did she do, she got us and our friends together and she started teaching us and also some of her friends started teaching from that started a class, the older girls, they wanted to be taught on a regular basis. From that style class, they wanted to understand the Quran. So my mom started teaching them. And then from that started the course in one year,
the entire Quran was taught in one year, and then different different variations came up over the course of many years. So anyway, it started from something small, right?
We sometimes have huge plans, I want to accomplish this, I want to do that I have this plan and that plan? How do you want to do it, you have no idea. Start small, whatever you can do do it. And if you value your time, if you value other people's time, then what will happen? You will come up with many creative things.
If I think back, you know, what is it that my mother was worried about our time, isn't it and her time.
So when you value your time, your life, other people's lives, then Allah will also show you the way
avails certain opportunities only because it's something that we do not find necessary. And you may not want to do it. But if you find it necessary, you will do it anyways, when it comes to building a resume, you know, you will volunteer here, you'll volunteer your time, many places, you'll, you know, put in utmost effort just to build your resume. Why? So you can show that to an employer, even if you find it difficult, right? Even if you're very busy, you will take time out,
isn't it? So if, for example, people who are working, and they want to get a better job, what will they do? They will start studying again.
They're working full time. And they're studying to get a certification to get another degree why so that they can
to get sub Indonesia, right? You have to, you know, have sub QA in certain actions as well. Right in certain degrees as well. So if you don't have it, you're not going to be up ahead and lunia Why is that we think that we can be saved with one without being silent when dunia
