00:00:01--> 00:00:04

How's it goin rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim

00:00:05--> 00:00:16

lesson number 300 Surah Al insana and number one. So the incense is also known as surah.

00:00:17--> 00:00:52

Al insan means the human being we learned about serotonin earlier. And we have also learned sort of fatter, which is also known as Malaika. And now we're learning about serotonin inside and Adele is time. So the surah is known as both a double as well as an insert. There is a difference of opinion whether the soda is murky or Madani, however, the majority opinion is that it is a murky swamp because of its style, and the eye and the message, the main theme of the soda, it's very clear that it is murky.

00:00:53--> 00:00:58

Now, the surah is also named as an adult, it means time.

00:00:59--> 00:01:14

And in particular adulthood is used for a long period of time, from the time of the beginning of the universe, until the end. So from the time Allah soprano data created the creation, not human beings, but even before

00:01:15--> 00:01:26

and all the way until the end of this when the day of judgment will be established. This is what Adele is, and the word the alternatives meaning of Allah, and

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

so to overpower to dominate to overcome.

00:01:32--> 00:01:42

And if you think about it, this is the case with time that it overpowers everything it passes on, nothing at all can resist the passage of time,

00:01:43--> 00:01:48

you can make the clock stop, but you cannot make timestamp, isn't it,

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

nor can you go forward in time, nor can you go

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

behind in time.

00:01:55--> 00:02:23

Time is something that you have absolutely no power over it. And people are completely helpless before the changing seasons, they are helpless before it when it's time for a season to come. It has to come. When it's time for a season to go, it has to go. When it's time for night to come, it has to come. Everything is helpless before it. And as time passes on what happens, great changes occur, drastic changes occur,

00:02:24--> 00:02:35

no matter how inconvenient or how hurtful, or how difficult they may be. But still those changes do occur, you don't have any control over it.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

For example, if a person wants to stay young, all the time, can they

00:02:41--> 00:02:54

they cannot, their body wrinkled up before them, their abilities weaken before them, they have no ability to stop dying from changing them. In other words.

00:02:56--> 00:03:00

So $1 is something that we do not have any control over.

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

This is why we pray to a loss of primadonna for Baraka in our time,

00:03:06--> 00:03:11

that we are loved with Baraka in our time, so that we can accomplish more in the little time that we have.

00:03:12--> 00:03:31

And time is something that's not in our control, but managing it well. managing it properly. And thus accomplishing our goals in the time that we have been given is somewhat in our control. This is why we pray to Allah for Baraka. And this is why we pray to Allah for focus and productivity.

00:03:32--> 00:03:36

So that we can do a lot in the time that we have been given.

00:03:37--> 00:03:52

And remember that at the time is related with the machine of law with the will of Allah. Because many times people get frustrated, upset. Why is it already five o'clock? Why is it already three o'clock? Or why isn't it already three o'clock.

00:03:54--> 00:04:24

So people have a lot of problems sometimes with time. They wanted to stop, they want to go quickly, or they don't want it to move quickly. But we see that this is with the will of Allah and we are not allowed to speak ill of time or become frustrated with it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that let the soup Buddha Don't curse time. Because when people get upset, then they get to the verge of cursing even.

00:04:25--> 00:04:44

So do not curse time for in Allah who had the hope because Indeed Allah He is at the meaning. All of these changes that are occurring as time goes by this is that who's commanded whose will at the will of Allah. So if you curse time, then why are you cursing? Allah not with Avila and this is very inappropriate.

00:04:45--> 00:04:58

So accept the fact that time is not in your control. But realize the fact that you can do something while you are living while you have a few moments. So don't waste those moments that you have been given.

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

This order, it is recorded in Muslim from our vassal dinar and who that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to recite the surah. In the federal prayer. He used to recite the surah. In the fudger prayer, especially on Fridays, he would recite through the sajida and also suited. So both of them,

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

he would recite these two soldiers.

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

The soldier has to required 31 verses

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

and 240 words and about 1000 little a little more than that.

00:05:32--> 00:05:49

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim how insanely heinous hainault minute de de la mia con Che Guevara, has there not come upon men a period of time when he was not a thing even mentioned?

00:05:50--> 00:05:58

Hell, Hell is different. It's a question. And over here, it's a rhetorical question. It's different.

00:05:59--> 00:06:20

Which means that it's a question that is being asked and answer is not required. However, it's understood and is different. The creed is for different reasons. Sometimes it's for the purpose of hubbub. And sometimes it's a purpose of jihad. Hubbard, meaning to inform. For example, it is said halwa.

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

Meaning, did I not promise you, what does that mean? I did promise you

00:06:27--> 00:06:33

similarly held by tugu, did I not give you this meaning? I did give this to you.

00:06:35--> 00:06:48

So how insane has there not come upon the human being a time meaning or the other? Yes, there certainly has been a time when Such was the case.

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

So over here, we see that a loss of primal data is directing man's attention to his reality to his origin,

00:06:56--> 00:07:06

that helps utter insanity. And which insane is this? An insane over here is objects. So it refers to all of mankind.

00:07:07--> 00:07:13

All of mankind, meaning every single person has in this time passed upon him, meaning it certainly has.

00:07:14--> 00:07:31

And Allinson has ultimate understood as them or his center. That as a wrestler was another time on him hainault mina Daddy, a period of time minute, after the hyenas also used for time and the herd is also used for time.

00:07:32--> 00:07:46

I told you that $1 is used for the time from the beginning of the creation until the end. And hain, on the other hand, is used for a portion of time. It's used for a portion of time from adult.

00:07:47--> 00:08:34

So has there not been heyno minute, a portion of time from adult this time passed by on the human being when he was lemmya con when he was not even something that was Seamus Gura, that was a thing that was my goal, meaning that is mentioned that is remembered. Meaning Yes, there has definitely been a time when the human being was something I mentioned. No one knew him. No one had any idea about his name, about his likes about his dislikes. Let me a country, Matt cola. This is the case with every single individual, if we take the meaning of an intern over here as Adam and escena. Then, before other Melissa lambs creation, there was nothing known as human being there was nothing

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

known as El Insan.

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

There are many other creatures that existed for example, the jinn, the angels, many creations existed, even the earth and the sky, they existed. But there was no sign of a human being

00:08:51--> 00:09:13

the creation that existed had no idea about el Insan. And the first time ever, I'll insert the human being was mentioned was when, when Allah subhanaw taala told the angels that Indonesia will only halifa the first time ever, there was mention of human beings was then.

00:09:14--> 00:09:49

And this is why the angels found it very strange. Why because it was a completely new thing for them, a completely new idea that a creation on the earth. So there was a time on human beings when they were nothing before, meaning they were unknown before lemmya Conchita makura he was not something that was mentioned, who knew either Edison 100 at least know him? No. Did the angels know him? No. Was the earth familiar with him? No one was familiar with him. Only Allah knew because Allah knowledge is not limited to the past, present or future.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

And we see that inside over here. If it's taken as any human being, then this is true that every human being before he

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

was brought into this earth. What was he?

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

If you were 20 years of age than 22 years ago, were you mentioned at all?

00:10:10--> 00:10:17

No. Did you have a given name? No. Did you have a same number? No, nothing.

00:10:19--> 00:10:53

Similarly, when you were not an Aloha, a mandala? What was your name? Nothing. Is it something worth mentioning even? No many times parents, they hide the initial stages of pregnancy from other people. They don't tell other people about it. By lamea country and medical rights not worth mentioning. It's nothing right now. But when the pregnancy is established after some time, then they start telling other people why? because then it's something that's perhaps worth I mentioned. But even then, do they say, Oh, this is Abdullah? Or this is Maryam? Or this is sada. No, they don't.

00:10:54--> 00:11:05

And many times the people refer to the baby as it because they don't even know what the gender is. lemmya can Shea and McCullough he was something that was not even mentioned,

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

and identified, unknown.

00:11:10--> 00:11:15

The people of this world did not know him. And before other religion was created, no one knew him.

00:11:16--> 00:11:39

In another piano, we learned about the last stages of a person's life, when his soul is departing, when the soul is leaving the body. So we see that a time comes when a person departs. And very soon he is forgotten. And before that time was a time that man was unknown, unmentioned.

00:11:40--> 00:12:03

So we see that the human being before he comes to this dunya, he is lovely a country and makura, he is not something that's worth mentioning. And then he lives on this earth, He eventually leaves. And after he leaves, many times them you can share him with poorer people forgetting, people don't even remember his name. People don't even know he existed, people don't even know he lived.

00:12:04--> 00:12:16

So we see that during these two times, of being unknown, there is a time that a human being spends were interesting, on this planet in this earth when he is alive.

00:12:17--> 00:12:36

And while he is alive, while he has life. While he has a name. He has abilities, he can do things he can leave things during this period. There is a purpose, there is a reason why he's here. Allah says in Hala canal in Santa Minato fatin Indeed, we have created the human being from a sperm drum.

00:12:37--> 00:12:48

Notice inner Hakuna, he was nothing. Let me show you a makura he was nothing at all. And we created him if we did not create him, he would be nothing.

00:12:50--> 00:13:20

If Allah did not create the human being, if I did not create You and I, what would be you and I nothing? Who would know us? Who would think of us who would prepare for us? No one. So in the hollow canal in Santa, we have created the human being and inside over here can be understood as the individual human beings and also the species the human beings the children of Adam or listener, mankind humankind Who has created it almost parameter

00:13:21--> 00:13:33

and how did Allah create the human being men notified in from a sperm drop, a sperm drop. I'm charging a mixture a sperm drop mixture,

00:13:34--> 00:13:42

I'm sure is from the route lifers named Jean Jean and mesh is to mingle or mix some components together.

00:13:43--> 00:13:52

It is said that unshared is a plural of machines like a tom is a Florida team. So I'm sure to the plural of machines.

00:13:53--> 00:13:59

And message I am showed you is when two or more things get mixed up together to the point that they become one.

00:14:01--> 00:14:17

We have learned earlier that two different waters they flow, however, they retain their identity, they don't merge into one another, um charges different charges when they merge into one another. So they become one they become completely different from how they were before.

00:14:18--> 00:14:37

So no two fighting I'm charging Allah subhanaw taala created a human being from a sperm drop mixture, meaning he was not made from just one note. But the human being is made from the nuclear war, the mother and the father, the sperm as well as the ovum.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

This is what the human being is made from.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

And if you also look at the origin of human beings with the sperm drop or initially when the human beings in the stage of Allah, then it's not just one thing, but rather, the human being. Even in its initial stages. A microscopic creature, itself is a combination of many, many elements.

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

So many chromosomes, so many cells that determine all of his characteristics, all of his traits. So in mahanakhon, insulinoma, not 13 unchanging, and why is it that we created him nebuta Lee, we test him, we brought him into existence. And while he is existing nepeta Li, we are testing him, we are going to test him, we will definitely test him. This is the purpose of his creation, he was nothing before and very soon he will become nothing. But why he's here. Nevertheless, we are testing

00:15:36--> 00:16:14

and every dealer is to turn something upside down. And to test the worth of something, look at it from every side. So it is to know the reality of something by exposing it to different different situations. For example, you want to see if something is really going to work in your house. So what do you do, you take a sample of it, you take it, you try. Similarly, you want to see if some shoes are really good for you. So you put them on you walk with them, you run with them, you wear them in your house, and then you look at them from every angle, every side, why you're testing? What is its worth? Is it useful? Or is it not useful? Is it going to work? Is it not going to work? This is what

00:16:14--> 00:16:21

if Tila is to expose something to different different situations and then see it's worth

00:16:22--> 00:16:36

so in this life also, Allah subhanaw taala is exposing people to different different situations. That How does a person react? Different incidents, different circumstances nepeta Lee,

00:16:37--> 00:16:48

and for the purpose of this test, Allah says fudger Allahu semir, embassy LA. So we have made him semir and buslee, we have made him earring and also seeing

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

so that he can go through these tests.

00:16:53--> 00:17:05

Now one test is that what you take every Monday, and another is a test that you are in every moment of your life. Now the test that we have on Mondays, we get very tensed about them.

00:17:06--> 00:17:35

But the fact is, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us never tele he, we are constantly being tested, every moment is a test. Whether you are at home, or outside, at school, or at work, shopping, resting, sleeping, cleaning, engaged in worship, anything you're doing, what's happening, Allah is testing you, every moment is a test all the time you are in a test.

00:17:36--> 00:17:51

So if you look at it, Allah subhanaw taala. He has mentioned over here, that in this long period of time in adult life, from the beginning of creation until the end, a little time is allotted to every person

00:17:52--> 00:18:09

from a dub, a little time is allotted to the human being, Before that, he was nothing soon after, he will die. And a little time is allotted to the person and in that time that he has he is being tested.

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

And for that test, Allah subhanaw taala has made him smear endlessly.

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

Why smear endlessly, so that a person can use the senses and differentiate between right and wrong.

00:18:26--> 00:18:41

He can use these senses and differentiate between his diet and blood and what is guidance, what is misguidance he can understand the world he can understand the situations around him. And as a result, take the right action.

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

If you think about it, the ears and the eyes, what are they? The windows to the heart,

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

through your ears and through your eyes is that you perceive you perceive the world around you.

00:18:57--> 00:19:00

And when you perceive the world around you that what happens?

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

You develop some kind of understanding some kind of feelings were in your heart and mind.

00:19:06--> 00:19:11

And based on how you have seen things how you have heard, you decide what you're going to do.

00:19:12--> 00:19:20

So the ears and the eyes, what are they windows through the heart. This is how you perceive the world around you, you look you hear

00:19:22--> 00:19:32

and depending on how you have looked and how you have heard, you will decide how you're going to react, how you're going to respond in different situations, then you're going to take some action.

00:19:34--> 00:19:48

So Allah has given every person the ability to hear and see those are macula in this way. Why so that they can decide what they want to do. And in their decision in what they do. That is the test.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

That what decision does a person need? How does he react in different situations? How does he respond in different circumstances? We learn into a three minute eight to 10 illustration

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

JOHN says, alumna john the who are in a while he sang and worship at a diner today that Have We not made for him to eyes, the human being has two eyes to see with, and a tongue and two lips to speak with. And we have shown him the two ways the right way and the wrong way. Why?

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

So that a person when he perceives the world around him, he looks at what is around him, and he can hear he can see, he decides what he wants to do and what he decides. That is the test.

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

For jalna, who Sameera basura

00:20:38--> 00:20:44

in my head, Dana, who Sevilla, indeed, we have guided him to the way which Sabina Is this

00:20:46--> 00:20:59

the right way of life, the religion of truth, the dino Islam, we have guided him to this way. And what is the test in my shakeela? Whether he is grateful for him?

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

Or is he ungrateful?

00:21:04--> 00:21:21

So in other words, it's up to us, then in the little time, we have been given the hug while we are breathing. While we can see, while we can hear the little time that we have been given, what do we do? Do we become grateful? Or do we become ungrateful

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

because in this little time that we have been given

00:21:25--> 00:21:28

a lot of panel data has given many, many blessings to us as well.

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

amongst us blessings are, first of all the blessing of life

00:21:33--> 00:22:01

that we are living, then, with that blessing is a blessing of hearing and seeing that Allah has not created people, deaf and blind, no, they can hear, they can see they can perceive the world around them. And with them, people can understand different situations. Because summer is not just the ability to hear, but it's also the ability to accept to understand, eyes Also, don't just make you see, but you can understand you can comprehend.

00:22:02--> 00:22:18

So hearing and seeing, this means that a person has also been given a column comprehension, reason understanding. And then Allah did not just leave us to our faculties. No, he also sent guidance, he also gave the blessing of guidance.

00:22:19--> 00:22:26

So with all of these blessings that we have been given, we are being examined that how do we spend this little time we have?

00:22:28--> 00:22:38

What do we acquire? What do we prepare for ourselves? That this hearing the seeing, does it just get wasted in this life? Is it just used for this dunya?

00:22:39--> 00:22:45

Or is it that a person uses them for a greater purpose uses them to prepare something for the akhira?

00:22:46--> 00:23:16

Because if you think about it at the end of this lifetime is what either reward or punishment, there is a recompense there is a result afterwards. So a person is being tested in this dunya image shakeela will invoke a photo for either he can be grateful, or he can be ungrateful. What is gratitude that a person uses all of these blessings Allah has given him to prepare for the what is in gratitude that a person is heedless of these blessings, doesn't use them and doesn't prepare anything for the outcome.

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

So we see that in the ACA, a person's results will be based on what on how his performance has been.

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

In my shakeela

00:23:33--> 00:23:34


00:23:58--> 00:24:00

john Buscemi

00:24:03--> 00:24:04


00:24:08--> 00:24:10

Shakira, oh,

00:24:16--> 00:24:30

if you think about it, no person can deny the state of non existence before he came to this world. Can any person reject that? No. Even if a person does not believe in Allah, he knows that there was a time when he was nothing.

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

And there will be a time when he will die, he will perish and he will no longer exist in this dunya.

00:24:37--> 00:24:58

So how is it possible that the one who brought you here the one who is going to take you away from here, he gave you this time for no purpose? No. That doesn't make sense. The one who brought you here, brought you here with so many abilities, especially the ability to hear to see, to look at things to perceive the world around you to comprehend

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

and then on top

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

That he is also sent guidance.

00:25:03--> 00:25:18

So, in this time that you have, you have to do something. And what is it nevertheless he Allah subhanaw taala is testing people that imageshack Ilan are in Nakamura, either he can be grateful, or he can be ungrateful.

00:25:20--> 00:25:27

So this shows to us many, many things. It shows to us that a person while he is in this dunya, does he have the right to be arrogant?

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

Does he have the right to disobey Allah? No, because human beings are nothing.

00:25:36--> 00:25:40

Allah brought us here, he could take us away from here whenever he wants.

00:25:41--> 00:25:50

So in this little time, little time of the entire time that exists, how can you be arrogant? doesn't make any sense.

00:25:51--> 00:26:11

So this little time that we have been given we are to realize our true worth, what are we we are being tested. And we are to realize the magnificence of a las panatela and thus spend this time in his worship and endless obedience. Not that a person wastes his time wastes his life, being arrogant, thinking that there is no reason there's no purpose to life.

00:26:13--> 00:26:51

And we learn these if that this life is a test, and when a person is being tested, then what is his state he is alert, which shows to us that in this dunya also a person is living, how should he live heedlessly or alert, alert, conscious that you should live a conscious life being very careful. And we see that a lot of panel data has also sent guidance to people. He has pointed out the right way from the very beginning. As soon as people were a straight a loss of parameters and guidance at the time of new horizon and after him every now and then Allah subhanaw taala sent guidance.

00:26:53--> 00:27:07

We don't include a toaster that is 17 or a Matha Moodle for her Dinah home. And as First of all, we offer guidance to them, we send guidance to them, but for us to have brahma alhuda, but they preferred blindness over guidance.

00:27:08--> 00:27:34

So Allah has sent guidance to people in Napa Dana, who Seville he has pointed out the right way. And the test is that with this guidance that Allah has sent, and the abilities that He has given, what do we do? how appreciative are we? How grateful are we? How much do we use these blessings properly? And how much is it that we waste?

00:27:36--> 00:27:45

Especially of all the blessings that we have been given three blessings are very, very important that a person must use in property you must be grateful for them?

00:27:46--> 00:27:57

What blessings are they first of all, the blessing of life? life? Because what do we learn over here? In now Hakuna, we created the human being.

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

Life is a blessing.

00:28:01--> 00:28:16

People take it as a burden. Sometimes the thing why was I created I shouldn't have been created, be grateful. Allah has given you this type of existence. When you can enjoy so many things. You can experience so many things, you can learn so many things.

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

And if you think about it, life is a blessing in the sense that only Allah subhanaw taala can grant this blessing.

00:28:26--> 00:28:29

No one else can give life. No one.

00:28:31--> 00:28:56

No one can give life. When a child is born, imagine if the child is still born. What's the state of the family? Can they do anything? Can they put life in that child? No, the body is complete, perfect, perfectly fine. However, there is no rule. Can you put rule you cannot put through when a person is departing from this dunya Can you keep is wrong, you cannot keep his ruler.

00:28:57--> 00:29:00

So life is a blessing.

00:29:01--> 00:29:14

And this life that we have been given. We are not to waste it in unnecessary things. We are not to destroy it. We're not to ruin it. But rather we are to use it in the best way to invest every moment.

00:29:16--> 00:29:25

Then, secondly, another huge blessing is a blessing of a man in Medina who said he indeed we have shown him the way

00:29:26--> 00:29:33

we have pointed the right way to him what is the right way. And this also is a blessing that only Allah gives.

00:29:34--> 00:29:45

Because even if a person were to spend the entire wealth that he has, or that he could accumulate, in order to seek guidance, he cannot seek guidance unless Allah gives it to a person.

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

So this guidance also is what a huge blessing. This is why a person must be grateful for it, he must value it and how is it that he should value it, that he should apply it in his life, not that he should learn and forget

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

And then, after these two blessings is a huge blessing of the ohana, and that blessing is the blessing of God.

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

And the fact is that the one who values the first two blessings, he will be given his third blessing.

00:30:15--> 00:30:28

A person who does not value life does not value hedaya does not value a man and he will not be given gender either. A person who has used the first two blessings properly, he will be given the third blessing.

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

And we see that all of these blessings are granted by who's mushiya bioswale only Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

when it comes to life, what do we learn? Yes noco nyesha

00:30:41--> 00:31:08

when it comes to email and guidance, what do we learn? Yeah. De Manisha when it comes to Russia when it comes to his gender. What do we learn you don't need to feel Rama T. Manisha he admits into his mercy whomsoever He wills. So these blessings are special blessings and Allah has given them to us. And when Allah has given them to us, we are not to waste them. But rather we are to use them properly because this is the test of life.

00:31:09--> 00:31:17

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Every person begins the morning, ready to strike a deal with her soul as a steak.

00:31:18--> 00:31:22

He either ransoms it, or he puts it into destruction.

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

Every morning,

00:31:26--> 00:31:29

you are making a deal about your soul.

00:31:30--> 00:31:34

Either you're going to do something good and ransom the soul free it

00:31:35--> 00:31:52

or you're going to do something and you're going to let your soul remain in destruction in prison. Like we have learned earlier Kowloon fcmb Mikasa, but Raveena every soul is kept as a security deposit for what it has earned when it brings the right deeds, then a person is free.

00:31:54--> 00:32:06

So every single day, we are being tested imageshack Ilan are in Makkah for a person can do good and free himself, or he can waste his time and put himself in loss.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45


00:32:46--> 00:32:48

Shakira Oh.

00:32:54--> 00:33:11

So we see ultimately, the test is that how much do we value our lives? That is time that we have been given to live in this world? How much is it that we value our lives? How much is it that we value the moments that we have been given to breathe?

00:33:12--> 00:33:17

Is it that we waste them? Or we use them in something good to prepare for the AHA.

00:33:19--> 00:33:25

And the thing is, that in this life, Allah subhanaw taala is testing us which is why there will always be ups and downs.

00:33:26--> 00:33:50

There will be many bits and faults, there were many times when a person will perhaps make mistakes. Why? Because the situation is constantly being changed, a person has been exposed to different different situations. But the real test is of what of the heart it might shock you don't worry mercola that in different situations? How is the state of the heart of a person when something is taken away from him? When a difficulty comes in his life?

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

Is he grateful? Or is he ungrateful?

00:33:56--> 00:34:03

Is he grateful towards his Lord? Is he thankful towards his Lord? Does he have positive thoughts about Allah about the deen?

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

Or does he give up? Does he despair? Does he start to become angry with Allah?

00:34:10--> 00:34:24

And we see that our last panel data has given many many blessings to us in this dunya. And for all of those blessings, we are being tested, are we grateful? Are we ungrateful? What does it mean by that? That are we using them in the proper way? Or are we wasting them?

00:34:25--> 00:34:31

Are we using them in obedience to Allah? Or are we neglecting them using them in disobedience to Allah?

00:34:33--> 00:34:47

And many times you see the The problem is that people, they look at difficulties and they don't look at the blessings. We have been given both options in my shakeela for a Merkava, you can be grateful or you can be ungrateful.

00:34:48--> 00:34:58

So whenever there is a challenge, whenever there's a problem, don't just look at the trial. But look at the blessing that is in it as well. Look at the blessing that has come with it as well.

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

For example, if a person is going through difficulties in his life, he may think I have no reason to be grateful. Why should I be grateful?

00:35:06--> 00:35:13

This is not how I want it to be, this is not I want it to be. This is not according to my will, this is against me, why should I be grateful?

00:35:14--> 00:35:22

Sometimes people think like this, I have no reason to be grateful. But we see that as human beings, we have every reason to be grateful.

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

Because if he didn't create us, we would be nothing.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

If he didn't give us our abilities, we would be nothing.

00:35:32--> 00:35:44

There is a book the greatest miracle in the world. And in that book, there are many things I mentioned, for example, it is mentioned that we can see, because the 100 million receptors in our eyes enable us to see

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

Allah says over here semirara buslee era, you can see why not just because you open up your eyes. No, not just that. There are 100 million receptors in your eyes that enable you to see.

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

Just imagine,

00:36:02--> 00:36:09

for you to hear, it takes 24,000 fibers in your ears to vibrate.

00:36:10--> 00:36:15

24,000 fibers in your ears when they vibrate, only then you can hear

00:36:17--> 00:36:22

how can a person say I have no reason to be grateful, you have every reason to be grateful.

00:36:23--> 00:36:42

We can move, we can stretch, we can walk, we can run, we can do so many things, with the help of about 500 muscles in our bodies, about 200 bones, and seven miles of nerve fiber, how the body is connected in the nervous system, seven miles of nerve fiber.

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

Just imagine,

00:36:45--> 00:37:05

then this heart, it beats 36 million beats each year, each year, how many times 36 million pumping 600,000 gallons of blood every single year, through 600 miles of veins, arteries and tubing every year. Just imagine

00:37:06--> 00:37:13

this body that Allah has given us this life that Allah has given us, there is a lot to it, there are many blessings that Allah has given.

00:37:14--> 00:37:37

And if you look at just the blood itself, within five quarts of blood only there are 22 trillion blood cells 22 trillion, you can't even imagine the numbers. These many blood cells, and within each blood cell are millions of molecules. And within each molecule is an atom that moves at more than 10 million times each second. Just imagine

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

so much Allah subhanaw taala has given us and every time the blood cells die, they are replaced.

00:37:47--> 00:38:05

If you look at the brain, it's the most complicated structure in the universe. They say, within three pounds, an average brain is three pounds in weight. There are 13 billion nerve cells, 4 million pain sensitive structures, 500,000 Touch detectors and more than 200,000 temperature detectors.

00:38:06--> 00:38:39

Just imagine, Allah has given many blessings, many blessings. And unfortunately, we're always looking at what what we don't have. This is why we complain, this is why we are unhappy. This is why we don't use our time, our life in productive things. Because if we start appreciating life, if we start appreciating the moments that we breathe, the breaths that we take, then our life will be much much more productive. We wouldn't waste our time.

00:38:40--> 00:38:45

The reason why we're unhappy we're Moody, we're upset, is why? Because we're ungrateful.

00:38:47--> 00:38:58

So gratitude is what acknowledging the blessings and doing something and in gratitude is this acknowledging the blessings, not even noticing them. that a person looks at what he doesn't have.

00:38:59--> 00:39:07

And he ignores all that he has. If we were to become grateful, then we would become content, we will become productive, we will do something.

00:39:09--> 00:39:41

If you think about it, for one I even you cannot fully offer gratitude to Allah soprano gala for the blessing of even one. But Allah has given us two eyes, not one year, two ears, a heart that pumps not only during the day, but even during the night. Can we really show gratitude for all of the blessings Allah has given us? No, we cannot. Then how do we think we can be ungrateful? How is it that we can think we can waste our life? How is it that we can think we will do nothing we will kill die We will just pass time

00:39:42--> 00:39:56

that just imagine every six months we had fresh blood in our body how the constantly you know blood cells are dying and they're being renewed do million diet and 2 billion are replaced immediately. And when you go for an oil change for your quality you have to pay for it,

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

isn't it these changes are occurring in our body with

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

doubtless even realizing

00:40:02--> 00:40:16

that if you have a cavity in your tooth or something, you go to a dentist and he removes it at the end, you say thank you, you thank them for what they have done. But how many times is that we thank Allah for so many things in our bodies that don't have any problem.

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

No problem at all. For so many things that get fixed by themselves without even realizing. Just imagine if we had to keep a track record of our blood cells, our hair, so many things of our body, we don't have to do that. So the point of mentioning all of this is that Allah has given all of these blessings to us. Not for nothing.

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

Not so that we live and then we die. No.

00:40:47--> 00:40:54

But Allah has given us all of these blessings, which are Allahu semir embassy law. Why? So that a person can do something

00:40:55--> 00:41:01

with it person does something when a person uses these blessings, works for the author, then he's been shackled.

00:41:02--> 00:41:11

And when a person does not use these blessings, he wastes them. does not use him for the era that he has been. Okay.

00:41:12--> 00:41:20

In my Shakeel, and we're in Mecca for notice the word careful, not caffeine, burger food, because food is one who is very, very ungrateful.

00:41:22--> 00:41:27

So Mr. shakeela mercola, this is a test of life.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

And if you think about it, in every person's life, Allah subhanaw taala has placed some deficiency some problem.

00:41:35--> 00:41:42

No person is you can say perfect in every person's life, there is some deficiency. And that is your test.

00:41:44--> 00:41:48

That Do you just focus on that deficiency? Or do you focus on everything else?

00:41:50--> 00:41:55

We see that many times. Why is it that people are not doing something productive? Why is it that they're wasting their time?

00:41:56--> 00:42:04

I'm waiting for this to happen. I'm waiting for that to happen. I'm waiting to get married, I'm waiting to have children. This is what people spend their time doing.

00:42:05--> 00:42:10

But with that deficiency, you are being tested that what do you do?

00:42:11--> 00:42:15

Is the focus of your life that deficiency that problem?

00:42:16--> 00:42:21

Or is it that you're doing something for the answer? This is the test in my shark Ilan.

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

Either he can be grateful or ungrateful.

00:42:27--> 00:42:32

And when a person is truly grateful for his heart and what happens, he's grateful for every little thing

00:42:34--> 00:42:46

that Alhamdulillah flows out of his mouth, unconsciously, even without even realizing even when there is a problem, he will say Alhamdulillah even when there is a difficulty, he will say Alhamdulillah he will not start to complain.

00:42:48--> 00:43:08

And also, if a person is ungrateful for this blessing of life with the blessing of Eman for the blessing of the day, then this in gratitude is not small. It's not small, it's very, very big. Why? Because the favors of Allah so many, the blessings are so many. You know, it's in gratitude, that a person does not make it agenda, how

00:43:10--> 00:43:22

Allah created him, Allah provided for him. Allah gave him so much alesund guidance, the messengers, they suffered so much difficulty in conveying the message of Allah himself with the responsibility to make sure people are guided.

00:43:23--> 00:43:30

And then Allah has given the human being the ability to comprehend the ability to see, to realize to experience so many things.

00:43:31--> 00:43:37

And yet, a person does not value these blessings and ends up in the Hellfire that is in gratitude,

00:43:38--> 00:43:39

in gratitude,

00:43:41--> 00:44:15

that for no money in the world, would you give up any part of your body I mean, your eyes, your nose, your lips, so many abilities you have, you wouldn't give it up. So that means that you're very, very valuable. Imagine what great assets were great, valuable things Allah has given you. So with these fingers that Allah has given us which you don't want to set at any cost, what are you to do with them or not? Right good things with them? No, do something good. be productive. Use this life. Use these moments. Because if you use them, then you're being grateful. If you waste them, you're being ungrateful.

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

In my shakeela

00:44:22--> 00:44:23


00:44:31--> 00:44:31


00:44:50--> 00:44:51
