Az-Zalzalah-At-Takathur Tafsir Al-Qariah 1-8
Lesson number 311. Soda castle is number one to eight. sorted the castle is a murky soda and it was revealed after so little close off, it has one record eight verses 28 words and about 120 truth.
In this era, we learn about
the race, that people are busy and that people are lost in. And this race is to acquire more adonia.
On one hand, there are those who are racing in obedience to a loss of primal data on the path of Allah.
And that lesson we learned where instead of the idea to allow the eye to love her, look at these horses, they're running endlessly, tirelessly, constantly, no matter how difficult it is, at whatever time
and on the other hand, the majority of the people, what is their race about? They're chasing this dunya
so Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the reality of this race, that if you chase the dunya then what do you have in your hand at the end?
Allah says allow Komodo castle, competition in worldly increase diverts you ll calm and how come Lam ha Well, no. And what is no amusement, such amusement that distracts a person from what is more important, such amusement that distracts a person from what is more important. For example, a person is watching something on the television. And what is more important that that time is the remembrance of Allah. What is more important at that time is doing something productive, something useful to save oneself in the era to have more good deeds that could be put on the scale that could perhaps save a person on that day. However, that entertainment, what does it do? It distracts a
person, it keeps him occupied. And it makes him think that what he's doing is good. So he neglects doing that which is more important. So it'll have a lacuna and how you'll heal her in her is the master, what does it mean to keep someone lawful to keep someone negligent from something that is more important?
So, how come it has distracted you? It has diverted you, what has distracted you? What has diverted you what has preoccupied you? at the castle? The competition for increase the desire for more the competition for more, this competition has distracted you from what is more important.
at the cathode is from the root letter scavs. Our guest will discuss roaming
and the castle of deferiprone. What does that show that there are more than one person that are involved in this action. There's this element of competition.
So, the castle is the competition for kasra the competition for Kasparov that when people are competing against each other to have more and more and more
that she has to I have to have three now, she has three I have to have four they have this now, we have to have this as well. This is what the castle is
that a person is constantly competing against other people comparing himself to them and what is he striving to have more the castle.
So, this the castle Allah says it has come it has distracted you preoccupied you diverted you, diverted you from what
the remembrance of Allah preparation for the affair.
Now, what is this the castle referring to the castle in what in particular
this is the castle desire for increase in anything, whether it is wealth, or children or anything that a person likes, that a person is competing with others for. So this desire for more and more and this competition for more and more. This is distracting you that constantly you are comparing yourself with other people.
Constantly you are comparing yourself with other people and you're busy, busy trying to get more and more and when you have more what do you do?
The castle also leads to the Falcon what is the Falcon boasting to one another mentioning to other people
I have this snap. And I have that no interactive graph I 34 what do we learn an extra domain kanalen? Well, as soon as
an exome income and I have more wealth than
and notice the work the castle as well, that the castle where it gives me an eagle competition, it also gives a meeting of HD rock, that where everyone shares this, it gives me enough Darwin gives me an issue of that everyone shares is quality.
So we see that people that have many differences amongst one another many, many differences.
But despite their differences in being ethnicity, age race, what is common between all people is the desire for more.
You go to any place you meet any person, anywhere in the world of any age, working in any field or not working, what is their desire? What's their goal? What do they want? What do they like more, they can never have enough.
So we see that this feeling this desire is something that has united people despite their differences. This is something that is so common amongst people, what to have Boonen mela have been Gemma was in the who they have bill Heidi, Lucha de This is something very common amongst all people.
So we see that all people love wealth, there is no person who is exempt from this, each and every person as well. And as we discussed earlier, every person's level of love or the intensity of that love is different. Some have more love other people have less.
And we see the beauty of this love that people have for Well, they're always desiring for more.
They're always designing for more and not just desiring for more, but they're competing against one another as well for more.
And this the castle isn't everything. For example, with children in toys. Similarly, in older people includes similarly monks, women, linens, makeup, men, cars, then status, power, authority, fame, even sometimes knowledge books. So people are always competing, this list is endless.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said if the son of Adam had a value of gold, he would desire another like it, he would want one more like it.
So I'll have to cancel this castle has distracted you from your purpose in life. You are so preoccupied with wanting more You are so concerned and worried about increase that you forget what is more important this is your worry, this is your concern. This is your striving
whereas in reality you're striving your concern your worries should be for what the accurate
and we see that this the cursor isn't everything and sometimes it's also in knowledge that that person has this degree so I should also get it this person has that qualification they have read this book I should also read it however the castle is only good in what that which benefits the person in the room
so even when it comes to knowledge with regards to wish knowledge it's okay it's permissible
knowledge that is beneficial whether it's money or the because sometimes religious knowledge even what is it it's like a burden on a person remember the example of the hood? What is it Catherine Hey Maria esfera because the donkey does not benefit from the books that he's carrying. So the only the castle that is good is what that which benefits a person in the alpha.
However there are very very few people very few people who's concerned is the castle for
that they want more for their alpha. Generally, what do people want more of this dunya
they will ever say well this person has performed so I should also do
this person is praying so I should also this person has memorized as much of the Quran I should also do it and if people do have this desire many times it's for what purpose showing up? Or just to say that yes even I am good.
So very few people are like this that they do the castle for us. And over here that the castle that is meant is that which is blameworthy which is for dounia
so I'll talk about the castle. This castle has distracted you.
It has made you neglect what is more important. How does your tool macabre until you visit the graveyards. What does it mean by have to mean this the castle continues. It continues throughout your life until zirtual macabre until you visit the graveyards macabre is a Florida maqbara
Or MacBook, and what is macabre
a place where a person is buried
burying place graveyard.
So how does otomo COVID uncertain is from zero what is zero mean? To visit someone. So, your castle will continue until you visit the graves, meaning until you die and you are buried in your graves, you are running around into dunia in this competition until death approaches you and you leave everything behind.
And all that you have accumulated is not coming with you. It's not going to accompany you had to resort to lacava. And notice the word, Zara,
this era is to visit when you go to visit a place visit someone Are you there permanently? No, what does it mean? You have to move on from there, you have to go back or you have to go to another place another destination.
So what does the macabre What does it show that the grave is not the destination?
It's not the destination. It's just a temporary place of stay. And then after that, what's the final destination? It's either agenda or no.
So what does automobile fall because sometimes people you know when a person dies, they say things that they have reached their final home, or statements like that final home people use for the grave. This is incorrect.
Because the grave is not the final home after this grave is the Hereafter, which is why we see that there was an Arabi, a veteran when he heard what he said one law he must be moving one law in a new birth and that by Allah does that the visitor he does not stay permanently. So by Allah, we are definitely going to be resurrected, had desert.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, The servant says my wealth, my wealth,
the castle, this is mine, this is mine, I want more I want more. He's so proud of what he has. He's showing off to other people because the cathode leads to the falsehood as well. So he says my wealth, my wealth, yet he only gets three benefits from his well, that which he eats and finishes, what is his wealth, in reality, something that he has consumed, and has run out in his life. That which he eats and finishes that which he wears until it is worn out. So for example, he wear certain clothes until they're worn out and they're useless for other people.
Or that which he gives in charity, and is spent that which he gives him charity, he gives it away and everything else other than that, everything else other than that other than what what he has consumed in his life, what he has finished in his life, or what he has deposited for the hereafter. Everything else besides that will go away. Meaning eventually it will go to
his heirs it will not remain his.
So I'll talk about the castle, you're so busy accumulating, you're so busy wanting more and more, but eventually what's going to happen to it. It's not going to remain with you, you're going to leave it behind for other people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said three things follow the deceased person and two of them return while one remains behind with him.
The things which follow him are his family, his wealth and his deeds, his family and his wealth return and his deeds. They remain with him. So, how Kamata castle How does optimal makabe
can law? no meaning Stop, stop this rat race? Stop the staccato because when a person is busy in the castle, then what does he think that what he's doing is so important he's so lost in it then he forgets what is more important.
So, cola stop all of this stop chasing the dunya because this dunya is not going to stay with you this the cathode is not going to aid you.
So, further on the moon, soon you are going to know stop all of this the cancer do not run after this dunya Why? Because this is not right it is not correct. And if you do not take heed if you do not take a lesson then so Furthermore, very soon you will know what will you know the consequences of this the castle
if you don't understand this reality in life,
and don't shift your focus from dunia to Arthur from accumulating worldly things to accumulating hassanal if you don't shift your focus if you don't shift your purpose
Then what's going to happen very soon you're going to come to know the consequences of your chasing the dunya
so far down the road some then again, color no meaning stop Silva, Darla moon soon you're going to know
this is repeated again why as warning
because many times people don't stop when they're told stop all of this Chase.
They don't stop. So Allah says so McCullough solfatara Moon, you don't get it once. I tell you twice. Color solfatara Moon so McCullough solfatara Moon can start low Darla Muna, If only you could no alemannia cane with knowledge of certainty.
Low Laguna, what does low mean? have autonomy, it expresses wish desire. So, if only you could no with knowledge of certainty, If only you knew with certainty, you knew what with certainty.
You knew the reality of this the castle.
The reality of this mutual rivalry, the reality of Alcoa Takata.
If only you knew with certainty, its consequences, then what?
The job is not mentioned. But it's implied. And what is that? That you would not run after this linear then you would not be overly concerned with this dounia de lo de Luna Emily, in the conclusion is not mentioned here. It's kept silent. Why? For emphasis and also for more effect.
So If only you knew with knowledge of certainty, you would not run after this dunya
we learned in the Quran Allah says, latterly Come on welcome. Juana. oladipo and Declan and whoever does that for hula, hula zero, they're losers. They're those who suffer.
So, if only you knew with certainty, if only you had your pain in the Hereafter, you would not run after this dunya What are you running after?
Allah says letter of woodland jehane you will certainly definitely by Allah. Definitely you will see the Hellfire
this lamb don't miss understand this as connected with the previous ayah that this is the job of the previous I load our limoneira and really again, later on ninja he No, this is not connected with the previous ayah this lamb over here shows a custom an oath
that By Allah, you will definitely definitely see the jehane
What does it mean by this?
That on the day of judgment on the Day of Judgment, we will definitely see the Hellfire
insert alkaff i 53 or almajiri Moon and now the criminals will see the Hellfire we learn from the Hadees that Hellfire will be brought on the Day of Judgment. How in 70,000 rains on each rain 70,000 angels it will be brought what would result it'll just a little Halloween.
So letter a one of your home you will definitely by Allah you will definitely see the hellfire.
So, my letter will know her then you will definitely see it. How are you mentally again with the eye of certainty? What does it mean by it a pain
Alright, his eye and with the eye you see and yuckiness certainty or in any again such certainty such conviction that a person has on seeing something
there are different levels of conviction, there are different levels of faith of belief. One is that you believe in something simply because you have been told about it
and others that you believe in something, because you have seen it. For example, if somebody tells you that this person is not sincere, they cheat. Somebody has told you Okay, you believe them. However, you're not as certain but if you see them cheating yourself with your own eyes, that will that strengthen your certainty. Yes. So overhear someone I thought I wonder her I know the thing. Right now you have been informed about the Hellfire And on that day you will see the Hellfire and you will see it and you will not doubt it. You will not doubt it I nearly have been
and letter a one this is plural. And l hair comb comb is referring to all people. So what does it mean that everyone is going to be made to see the Hellfire both the believers and disbelievers both the people who will end up in Hellfire and the people who will end up in general everyone will be made to see how far we're in min Camilla. Why do you do her each person will cross the Hellfire at least if not go into it. But the believer will only see a glimpse of
And the disbeliever will see it as his outcome as his final home.
So Mehrotra wouldn't have been so mad at us alone, even I didn't marry him, then you will surely be asked that day about a Noreen about the pleasures.
On that day you will be questioned about what? And their aim? What does he mean?
blessing pleasures that you have enjoyed in this world.
Allah will ask you about them.
That what did you do with them? How did you use them? Did you benefit from them? Did you waste them? Were you grateful for them? Or were you arrogant about them?
Did you just get lost in these blessings?
Or did you worry about your alpha as well? So mulatos aluna Yama in earning Noreen? And this question you this is general everyone will be asked the believers as well as the disbelievers. Everyone will be asked about the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given them. And what's the evidence for that?
Report. And so he Muslim, in which we learned that once the profits on a lot of seller, he came out of his house, why? out of hunger, he was extremely hungry. So he came out of his house. And
he met a worker of the land who are motivated. And when he met them, he asked them that what brought you out of your house, they said hunger, we were hungry as well. So we came out and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that By Allah, nothing took me out of my house except for hunger as well.
So he said, Come along with me. So all of them, the prophet said, a lot
of them went, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took them to the house of an unsightly Sahabi.
And when they went there, he wasn't home, but his wife was there. And when she saw him, she welcomed him. And the Prophet asked her that where is so in so many ways, your husband, and she said that he's just gone out in order to get some water. So when he came in, he saw that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in Abu Bakar was doing or modal dinar, who was there. Immediately he went and he brought a branch almost like a branch of a date bomb on which were dates, so fresh dates, so he brought all of them. Just imagine he didn't just bring the few dates, but he cut off that entire piece and he brought it to the profits or losses. And then he said, eat the profit so that Why'd you
bring the whole thing is that for you to choose from?
And then we learned that this hobby he went and he slaughtered an animal.
And he brought it to meat, and his wife cooked some bread. And out of this food was presented to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and him and a worker of the diner, intermodal, Dennard who the age of the fresh deeds, the ate of that fresh meat, and that freshly cooked bread. And along with that, that Sahabi also brought cold water cooled water.
What do you think about these things? Normal?
Isn't it? a cool drink? some meat, bread? I mean, we wonder where's the salad?
Or where's the vegetable portion or something like that. So all of these blessings when they were placed before them.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when leadin fcbd he that is aluna and her the Noreen yomo piano
by the one in whose hand is my soul, you will be questioned about these blessings on the Day of Judgment. You'll be questioned about these blessings on the Day of Judgment. Let us aluna and head and Noreen
that merger commendable Utica merger so malampaya Asana calm head and Mary, that what brought you out of your homes was hunger. And now you don't go back home until after you have enjoyed all of his blessings.
In another version, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said these are the blessings for which you will be questioned about cool shade because they were sitting under the cool shade, fresh dates and cool water, cool water, cool shade, fresh food. This is what you will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment. So mulatos alone niyama isn't earning their aim.
But it's unfortunate that we have these blessings all the time. All the time.
That if it's extremely cold outside, we're sitting in a warm place. And yet yet we complain It's so cold, or it's so hot, yet we complain.
Whereas all that we have to do is just put a sweater on or take it off or do something. But why is it that we start complaining immediately. Imagine if this blessing was not given to us a blessing of eating.
Could you sit outside in this cold
Could you you couldn't
let us alone myeloma even. And in their aim, these blessings will be questioned about food. If it's not the right taste, if it's not the right type, we say we don't like it. We say we don't want to have it.
Just because it doesn't satisfy our taste buds. We start complaining. And we start looking down in the food, and we start belittling.
So mellitus aluna Yama in uninor aim, these are huge blessings. But unfortunately, we take all of them for granted.
We must urgently learn who said that these blessings it refers to. It refers to peace,
cool water. Other companion said that refers to bread,
fresh bread, or water that is sweet. water that is easy to drink, sweet to drink, in the sense that when you drink it, it's not extremely salty. It's not such that it bothers you know, you can drink it, it's easy for you to drink, out of the delicious things that we eat and we drink.
Similarly, it has been said that Noreen refers to health, health, this is also a huge blessing.
The fact that our bodies are sound, the fact that our hearing is sound, our vision is sound, the fact that we are safe.
So what if we have a headache once in a while. So what if something small happens, and we're hurting in one place? Aren't there too many other blessings that Allah has given. Similarly, it has been said that it refers to for our free time.
This is also a huge blessing. But unfortunately, we waste that free time
complaining that we have nothing to do complaining that we are bored,
or complained that we have too much to do.
Similarly, it has been said that in our aim refers to time it refers to morning and evening. This is also a huge blessing. But in the morning, we're waiting for the evening. In the evening, we're waiting for the morning, and we don't make use of our time.
Then some have said that this memory refers to guidance and knowledge. Knowledge is also a huge blessing.
So if you summarize, a name refers to everything from the pleasures, the comforts, the leisure, the enjoyment of dystonia, everything that a person enjoys.
But unfortunately, we're so unhappy, and discontent with all of these blessings that Allah has given to us. That no matter how much we have, we want the castle. We want more. And this the castle has distracted us from being grateful. This the cathode has distracted us from using our blessings properly. This the cathode has distracted us from preparing for the era. We're so concerned about what we don't have. We're so concerned about how things are not the way we want them to be. That we don't have a higher purpose in life.
The fact is that everything we have, everything we enjoy, is in fact a blessing. But when I become manipulated, I mean Allah, anything you have, it is from Allah. And Allah will ask you about
how did you get it? What did you do with it? Did you use it properly? Did you waste it? Did you neglect it? Did you just throw it away?
Did you share it? What did you do with it? So mulatos alone laowa eating and in learning you will be questioned about it.
Earlier we learned in certain ideas about the horses.
That how if the horses are well fed, they're well kept, how obedient they become to their masters how fast they run.
So fast, and they're not afraid, and they charge and they attack at the instruction of the masters.
So this shows gratitude on the part of the horse,
that whatever blessing whatever favor the master has shown to the horse. It's been demonstrated in the form of obedience.
Now think about it. Allah subhanaw taala has given us many, many more blessings compared to what a master can give to a source.
Many many more blessings,
food, shelter, clothing, people enjoyment, happiness, Talat Aryan, just looking at something and being happy with that knowledge, religion, and I'm not sure Allah who I named when the sun and worship attain
Alma aquel to lacantina como este mundo la come near Mati religion is also a huge blessing. But what is the level of our obedience, our submission, our effort, our striving, compared to the striving of a horror sports monster,
we are so lost that we just lost this linear data, that we can't even worry about a greater purpose.
And that too, seems to be such a great burden on us. Solar is such a huge burden. reciting the Quran is such a huge burden. gaining knowledge feels like such a huge burden.
It's because perhaps we think that we deserve all of these blessings it's our right
and we can do whatever we want.
Allah has given these lessons not so that we become arrogant
but so that we become humble like Solomon or listener What do I did he make up the zero need an escort an arithmetic Allah to
Allah give me the ability that I'm grateful for the blessing that you've given me what Allah validate you, and that will be stored in my parents, when our masala hunter ba This is what sugar is, that for all of these blessings that you've given me I'm able to do deeds that are righteous, that you will be happy with. What are the hidden erotica theoretical side?
His focus was the alpha not donia.
But the more love a person has for this dunya the more it becomes his focus, his worry is concerned. Then it distracts him. It makes him ungrateful. It makes him disobedient. It makes him negligent.
We listen to the recitation again.
assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.
