Lesson number 84 Surah Al Anon is number 111 to 127.

00:00:09--> 00:00:24

Willow and if Anana indeed we know Zona We sent down either him to them, l Mala Ekata. The angels if we sent down to them angels to who?

00:00:25--> 00:00:39

In the previous idea, what did we learn at the end of the seven Jews? We learned that those people who refuse to disbelieve that no matter what miracle no matter what proof, no matter what evidence they see, are they going to believe them?

00:00:40--> 00:01:18

Are they going to believe them? No, they're not going to believe. Why? Because once you refuse something, then Allah subhanaw taala does not give you the ability to say yes to it. So over here, their stubbornness, in their disbelief is being mentioned. That how stubborn how firm are they in their disbelief? That if we were to send down on them angels from the sky, and what would these angels do? present themselves meaning literally those people would see the angels as the prophets are a lot of send them saw the angel Jupiter you would they still believe? No, they won't.

00:01:19--> 00:02:06

What can lemma home and he spoke to them who are Mota, the dead ones plural of the word, what's the singular of the word Mota may hit the dead spoke to them, meaning the dead came out of their graves. Imagine a dead person coming out of his grave and telling someone believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he is indeed the Messenger of Allah. Likewise, the angels coming down from the sky telling the people believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he is the messenger of ALLAH, if the angels were to tell them, and the dead spoke to them, what has shown now and we gathered or lay him upon them color, every che in thing, we gathered upon them everything Gula the word COBOL has

00:02:06--> 00:02:31

two meanings. Firstly, it means in front, meaning everything was gathered before them, you know, like herbal means before. So everything was gathered before them. So all creatures, everything is in front of them, telling them what believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he is indeed the Messenger of Allah. And the word COBOL is also understood as the plural of the word could be what comes to your mind when you hear the word Kabil

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

Pibil what comes to your mind

00:02:36--> 00:03:26

try the word Kabila comes to mind right? Bobby Kabila very similar. So corbeil is a group. So what Hashana Allium coalition kupuna that we gathered before them, everything in groups, so a group of lions, a group of people, a group of elephants, a group of different different creatures, coming in front of them, telling them what this very thing that believes in Mohammed salatu salam, because he is the messenger of Allah. What does Allah say, man not can who they were, you may know that they believe they would still not believe in Allah except on that Yeshua, Allah, Allah wills, meaning if Allah wills, if Allah allows them to believe, then yes, they will believe otherwise. These people

00:03:26--> 00:04:01

are so firm in their disbelief, that no matter what evidence they see, no matter what miracle they see, no matter who tells them to believe in Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, they're not going to believe. Think about it. If someone who is knowledgeable, who is respectable in the community, who is known for his wisdom, if he does something, other people will then not follow him. Will they not follow him? Yes, they will. And if he tells people do this, would they not listen to him? Yes, they would. Why? Because majority of the people what is their state? They are followers.

00:04:02--> 00:04:48

Now in Makkah, who embraced Islam, amongst the influential people, there were many who embraced Islam, for example, or middle doula horn who he was one of those few people in Makkah who could read and write. But even though he believed, did the rest of the people follow him, no. One day they respected him, they feared him. They were so afraid of him, and the next day, they were coming out against him to oppose him. Just like that the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu Hamza Abdullah, who and who was he influential? Yes, he was one of the strongest men of Makkah. He was one of the bravest men of Makkah, he became Muslim, but yet, the people did not follow Him. So what does it

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

show them? That it doesn't matter who tells them to believe it doesn't matter? who explains clarifies the truth to them? It doesn't matter what evidence there is.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

See, these people are not going to believe. Why? Because they have made up their mind, they're going to remain upon their disbelief. And when someone becomes stubborn, he becomes firm on his ways that no matter who tells them anything, no matter what they see, no matter what proves they're given, do they change? Do they accept? No, they're not going to. So at the end of the day, we see that many people, they blame Allah, that so and so doesn't want to listen because Allah is not giving him the ability. And in this ayah also Allah says they're not going to believe until Allah wants. But the reality is that Allah allows you to believe ALLAH facilitates who to believe, the one who wants to

00:05:43--> 00:06:32

believe himself, the one who wants to bring the change in himself that Allah will help him, Allah will show him the way because this is the rule of this dunya This is the natural law that Allah subhanaw taala has made in this dunya that whatever a person strives for, that is what he gets. And if a person doesn't want it, then no matter what he is shown, no matter how he is convinced it doesn't matter. In the Quran, we learn what alasan insanity Illa masa, there is nothing for the human being except that which he strives for. And striving is a result of one intention. It's a result of desire. It's a result of wanting something. So if these people do not want hedaya

00:06:32--> 00:07:16

themselves, then can it be forced in on them? No, it cannot be Illa Ania sha Allah but yes, Allah still has the power to force it upon them. But that's not the way of Allah He doesn't force people to become believers. He doesn't force them to accept the religion. Well, I can about a thorough home most of them yet to her loan. They are ignorant, yet her loan from Jeem her lamb journalists, ignorance, meaning majority of the people, what is their state that they are behaving ignorantly? How are they behaving ignorantly that they keep demanding from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam show us this miracle, we will believe shows this evidence we will believe but if they had to believe they

00:07:16--> 00:08:00

would have believed when they saw the moon split. Did that miracle not happen? Yes, it did. They even saw the moons split. But what did they say? Magic. This man has enchanted her our eyes. This is why we are looking at the moon as though it has played but in reality it has not split. He has affected our eyes, his magic has affected our eyes. So they came up with one excuse after the other. So basically, in this ayah the prophets are a lot of cinemas being comforted that it's not your fault. It's not your fault at all. You are conveying the message correctly. And the problem is with who with these people, because they kept on demanding miracles and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and

00:08:00--> 00:08:33

the believers they want it that at least some miracle should be shown perhaps they will believe but Allah subhanaw taala is making it clear here that no these people are not going to believe in truth Eunice is 9697 we learn in the medina Hakata Allah in Kalama to Rebecca la you may know well Oh Jaya Kulu Ayrton, Hatha Yoga will hon Aleem, indeed those upon whom the word of your Lord has come into effect, they're not going to believe even if every sign should come to them until they see the painful punishment. Think about your own.

00:08:34--> 00:08:45

Think about your own. What did he say to Musa Hassan that show us some proof that you are a messenger that Musa al salaam showed him some proof? Did he? What did he show?

00:08:46--> 00:09:32

What did he show? His stick? When he threw it? It turned into a snake. What else did he show? Yes, his hand when he put it under his arm. It came out glowing. Okay, what if in our own say, this is magic. We can show you better magic. Okay, so what happened was artists and I'm said sure. So they agreed at a time and a place announcements were made the best of Thrones magicians were called. And what did they do? They showed their magic. They threw their sticks and their ropes they all turned into snakes. Musar esalaam. He threw one stick it turned into a huge gigantic snake which swallowed all of their little snakes. At that time, what happened? All of the magician's they said, This is

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

not magic. This is something else. This man is not a magician. He is really what he's saying he is. So they said we believe in Musa, we believe in his Lord. We believe in the Lord of our own. They surrendered immediately. Now for their own when he saw that, was that not a clear sign? Who can tell you about magic that whether it is magic or not a magician? All those magicians were saying this is not magic, but still

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

Did he follow them? Did he follow their way? No, what did he do instead? He had them all killed. He had them all killed. Then what happened? One punishment after the other was sent upon their own. Every time a punishment was sent, whether it was the floods, or it was the famine, or it was the various creatures, you know, that basically all over their houses, their lands, their bodies, even for example, frogs and lice, and the list goes on. Every time something like that happened, what it for their own sake, he went to Musala Sinha, and he said, Ask your Lord to remove this from us and we will believe musasa would make dua, the punishment would be lifted within our own belief. No.

00:10:46--> 00:11:34

Then what happened? musasa was told, take the Bani Israel leave, they left the sea was split. Right. And for their own, he followed them. He saw the sea split open. Even that did not make him believe. But when did he believe eventually when he was drowning? That's exactly what Allah says Hatha Yoga will herbal le until they see the painful punishment. When they see that, then they believe then they surrender. But at that time, that belief is useless. So it's not that the truth is not clear. It's not that a loss of primal data has not explained the help and the baffling to us. No, it's not that the signs and evidences are not present, nor they are present. Like we discussed yesterday, all

00:11:34--> 00:11:58

over within you around you. And the one who's seeking the truth, he finds it, but the one who's not seeking the truth than what happens. He will make one excuse after the other. Let me relate this to your life. If there is someone who stoled please iron this for me. And they don't want to iron. What will they say? Oh, I don't know how to.

00:12:00--> 00:12:15

I don't know how to iron clothes. Okay, that's it. Okay, I'll teach you. I'll show you how to do it. Or I don't think we have an iron. I think it's broken. Okay, let's go get one. But I'm too busy. I have an extra one. Okay, but my hands hurting?

00:12:17--> 00:13:01

one excuse after the other. Correct. This is what people do. When do they do this? When they don't want to do what they're told. So just like that the truth is clear. They don't like it. They don't want to accept it. They find it hard. They find it boring. And this is why they say this is not true. It doesn't make any sense to us. Show us some evidence shows some proof, then we'll believe. But even though the greatest of miracles are shown, they're not going to believe in Allah subhanaw taala says over here, that even if the angels came down, and the dead spoke to them, and every group of creatures was brought before them, and every group of creatures stole them. This is Muhammad

00:13:01--> 00:13:50

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah, still these people are not going to believe. So just realize that these people are behaving ignorantly. So don't take their demands seriously. You're not if a person is ignorant, you don't take their demands or excuses seriously, what can I Lika and thus Jalna we made liquidly for every newbiggin profit, we made for every prophet who are do one enemy, meaning every prophet of Allah had enemies. Look at the word Gianna, it says No, Allah subhanaw taala caused people to become enemies to his prophets. It seems as though Allah is working against His Prophet. No, that's not what it means. What it means is that there were people who

00:13:50--> 00:14:43

became enemies of the prophets and Allah allowed that to happen. Because in this world, Allah allows good to exist, and evil to exist. Why? Because this is not Janna. This is dunya it is imperfect. And this is the place of test that who recognizes the good and who recognizes the evil who follows the good and who follows the evil. So we made for every prophet enemies, which kind of enemies shall clean an inci will Jin devils for mankind and the jinn. Now in this ayah again, the prophets are a lot of sin and has been comforted that every messenger of Allah had enemies. And the fact is, that every person who calls to the truth, every person who says something good, every person who wants to

00:14:43--> 00:14:53

do good, who does good, who invites people to good, then what happens, he will definitely face some kind of opposition. Do you agree with this?

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

Do you agree with this? Yes, this is very true. We see that, for example,

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

But every prophet of Allah had opponents. Right. You look at the great scholars of Islam in the past, did they face opposition? Did they face opposition yesterday, some of the scholars, they were imprisoned up to 10 times in their life, up to 10 times in their life, they were imprisoned. They were physically abused, tortured in public, Imam Malik. Imagine so soon after the Prophet saw a lot Islam, a scholar of Medina, he was physically punished. Why, because of an opinion that he held, because of an opinion that he held, he was punished brutally, so much so that his shoulders came off, he couldn't lift them up in Salah. Just imagine. So this is true. Every person who says the

00:15:48--> 00:16:42

truth who wants to practice the truth, who wants to spread that truth, he will face opposition. And even today, we see that at a very small level, that if a person wants to pray salah, because it is time to pray, then do they face opposition? Yes, there will be people who will not cooperate with them at all, they will not allow them to pray at that time, they will not allow them to pray where they are, isn't it so there are times when a person wants to get out of haram, but others will not accept that they will never cooperate with them. So remember that truth always brings what difficulty? Now, this doesn't mean that you leave it. This doesn't mean that you leave it. It's just

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

the natural way, you know, positive, what does it attract?

00:16:47--> 00:17:18

Negative? Correct. So the truth will always invite opposition. Because sometimes it happens that we're doing something right. And we see that the entire family is against us, or all of our friends are against us. You say something that by the way, you should only eat that meat, which was slaughtered in the Name of Allah, and all of your friends turn against you. You're like what happened? I just had one statement, and all of you are against me.

00:17:19--> 00:18:05

And it happens on names that you say one thing that you read in the Quran, one Hadith of the prophets of Allah is Allah. And it's as though you threw a bomb. There's so much reaction. There's so much opposition. And you wonder what went wrong? Did I make a mistake? Did I say something wrong? And then you start doubting yourself as well. So what do we learn over here that every prophet had, opponents had enemies, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was stole that if you are being opposed by your people today, this is not something new, this is normal. And the same message is for us that if we are opposed today for what we believe, for what we practice, for what we say, that doesn't

00:18:05--> 00:18:57

necessarily mean that what we're doing is wrong. If it's according to the book of Allah, if it is according to the religion of Allah, then it is true. And the opposition, yes, it's there, but it should not make us believe what we believe in. So what can I make a John Manley Kulina beginner I'll do one, and these enemies were who shall clean devils plural of Shavon? shall clean an insole ins human being, well, gin, and gin. Meaning who were the enemies, there were devils, and these devils, some of them human beings, and some of them, Jin. What does this mean then? That the word shaitan doesn't just apply to Iblees? Okay, there isn't just one Satan, there isn't just one shape on all

00:18:57--> 00:19:52

right. And Shavonne is not necessarily gin only shaitan has Wu Shavon is basically every disobedient and rebellious one. Meaning every being that is disobedient to Allah, that is rebellious towards Allah, meaning doesn't accept the Command of Allah. He could be human and he could also be doing all right. So for example, Iblees when he refused to do such that, to Allah subhanaw taala. Did he rebel? Yes. Did he disobey? Yes. So what did that make? IBLEES then it made him shape on. Okay. There were some gin, who came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they embraced Islam. Okay, now, those gin, would you call them shape on? No, you wouldn't call them shape on why? Because they

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

weren't disobedient. They weren't rebellious, rather, they were believers. So there are a couple of things that we learn over here.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Before I summarize one more example, Abuja, who,

00:20:05--> 00:20:23

when he disbelieved and when he came to battle against the Prophet salallahu Salam, when he came, and he put that heavy intestines and such things from the camel onto the prophets of Addison when he was frustrating, and him and his companions had a good laugh, watching the prophets of Allah Islam struggling to breathe.

00:20:24--> 00:20:59

Abuja what do these actions make him? A shaitan? Right? Why? Because he was disobedient, and he was rebellious. So what do we learn from this, that first of all, a Shetland could be human being? And it could also be a gin but which human being with gin is shameful on which one, the disobedient rebellious one? All right, then we also learned over here that every gin is not Shaitan Okay. Every gin is not Shavon and

00:21:00--> 00:21:53

human beings can also be Shavon in certain nests, what do we say? All around the bureau bananas Malika NAS Isla Jimenez min Charlene was watching her nurse, Allah the US with a few Salinas Meenal Jin, neti oneness, you're seeking refuge with Allah from Shaytaan, right? And at the end, what do you say that are from the jinn and also from men also from people? So Shayateen ncwa Jin, there were enemies of the Prophet. Some were human beings and some were jinn. What did they do? You he, he inspires you hate from Well, her? Yeah, why don't we just secretly indicate to communicate secretly? You know, what is that you communicate with someone out loud? Okay, out loud. Is that way No.

00:21:53--> 00:22:09

Another is that you communicate with someone in writing. Is that why No. Another is that you know, through the eyes, okay, just with the eyes. You manage to convey a message to the other person.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

Like some people do in class, that is somebody walks in, they're like,

00:22:15--> 00:22:31

you know, what their eyes they're communicating with the other. So a secret indication that everybody doesn't find out about all right, this is called why. So you he he inspires barbel rooms, some of them ILA Berlin to others,

00:22:32--> 00:23:31

meaning, the jinn they inspire to human beings and human beings, they inspire to other human beings, what do they inspire negative speech, negative things? False things about the messenger, how in the form of Zoo Crew fellow coal, decorated speech, why Guru in delusion, meaning in order to deceive. So what do we see here? That a prophet of Allah, when he comes to deliver the message of Allah before the people, what happens? There are some people who will become enemies to him. But how does this enmity begin? This enmity begins by the shout lien and the INS inspiring to each other. What? Decorative speech in delusion. What does it mean by this decorative speech, zoo? Crowfall call the

00:23:31--> 00:23:45

word zoo hoof. It means decoration. The hoof Zahava. Zarafa is from four letter root, and it means anything that is used for beautifying or decorating something.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

Gold is also called the roof. Why do you think so?

00:23:51--> 00:24:35

Why do you think gold is called Zakharov? What could be the reason? Is it just because there's so much gold out there? They're like, might as well put it on hands. Yeah. Is that the reason? People People don't know what to do with gold? So they say okay, well just make jewelry out of it. Is that the reason? What's the reason? Exactly? It is for the purpose of beautification, whether somebody wears it on their ears, or on their fingers, or on their wrist, wherever the word What's the objective, beautification, just like that flowers in a garden. What's the purpose? beautification, adornment, decoration? Just like that something on the wall? What's the purpose?

00:24:36--> 00:25:00

What's the purpose? Decoration? All right. You know, for example, there could be something written in a very strange way. And it's still put up on a wall. Do you read it every day? No, you don't. Perhaps you don't even know how to read it because it's so complicated. So how sometimes Arabic is written in a very artistic way that everybody is not able to figure out what is written. So well.

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

What's the purpose of that? Declaration? Okay, so this is what sort of means. And zoom profile poll, when the word Zoom is used for cold, it means a statement that is beautified or something that is beautified with words, meaning in reality, that concept is not actually beautiful. It's not actually good, it's not actually appealing, but the way it is presented, the kind of words that are used to describe it, they are very convincing, they're very appealing. So what happens? People, they get influenced immediately.

00:25:43--> 00:25:57

You know, for example, if you sometimes read the ingredients of let's say, a certain cereal, okay, I remember somebody once told me, there's perhaps more nutrition in the package than the cereal itself.

00:26:00--> 00:26:09

There's perhaps more nutrition in the box than the cereal itself. But what kind of words are used to make you buy that?

00:26:11--> 00:26:52

The basically, it's sugar coated, right, all those words, and the kind of words that are used, and the kinds of advertisements that are shown on the television making you believe that even though you will have the sugary cereal everyday, in the morning, you will still stay smart and fit, and that your children will have all the energy in the world just because they had that cereal in the morning. I don't know how I really don't know how. But these words, they're so beautiful. They're so appealing, that everybody falls for it. People believe. So this is what Dockerfile means. Because if you were to present reality as it is, then would anybody listen to you know, would anybody buy your

00:26:52--> 00:27:40

product, never. They would never buy your products. So they're not really lying. But they exaggerate a few things, right? And they sometimes misrepresent things, just so that you will believe in them. This is what Dr. Phil Cole means. I read a quote recently, that advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something that they don't need. This is what advertising is, this is what marketing is that somehow the kind of words that you use, the kinds of things that you show, you make people believe that what you're telling them to buy is really really good for them. Because if you were to tell them that this car is not good in this, this this this and compare

00:27:40--> 00:28:27

it to such and such vehicle, this car is like this, this this this if you portray all the bad qualities, Will anybody buy that car? Never. But they want to show you that if you have the scar, your family will be so happy. And if you have the scar, you will have the most amazing trips, amazing road trips in this world. And if you have the scar, you know, everything will be fine, isn't it? This is what the colorful column means. So Allah says over here that you rebuild the womb, ILA Berlin Zoo Crew, Falcone, hoorah, the man and the jinn they inspire to each other decorated speech, in delusion, meeting in order to deceive others. Let me present you a picture.

00:28:28--> 00:29:24

Imagine the Prophet of Allah is telling the truth to people, what happens the person is listening. And the Shavon obviously with every human being has a shape on he inspires to that person was wasa so you can understand you he as us we sue does was Was he does was was to his art. This man is lying, but not just lying. A very decorative word share is he's a shirt and he's afford not to share it. He's a Kahin he's a soothsayer. Oh, he must be friends with the gym. Or he must be seeking worldly power and success. Okay? This was wasa it stops that person from believing even though the truth is very clear. Will you believe No he won't. Alright, then what happens? Does this Wassa stay

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

with him? No. He goes and tells his family and his friends the same thing that I think this man is a liar, Kevin, but Katha becomes Sheriff, and that becomes Kahin big, big words. Right? Big words. And as a result, what happens? People don't believe and if you analyze these words, they have no reality. For example, something very common that the Mushrikeen of Makkah spread about the Prophet sallallahu sallam was that He is a poet. But was this Quran poetry? No. Did he ever say poetry?

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

before the Quran was revealed to him, No, he was not a poet. And you know that people don't become boys just all of a sudden, they're always have some kind of inclination towards it some sort from the very beginning. And then it turns into, you know, something that's far more effective. But the prophets of Allah Addison did not have any such background. So in reality, calling him a Sharia was a completely baseless thing. But the people said he was a sheriff. And as a result, they didn't believe. And they prevented so many others from believing. And all of this is one who deception because these words, they have no reality to them.

00:30:41--> 00:31:19

So I'm already I was listening to a speaker and he said that three words you give an example that have been changed. One is, alcohol is now called spirits. And dance and music is now called Art. And usually, which sounds really bad is actually not called interest. So these words, which sounds so bad, and people would normally use them or whatever, they've been changed and modified. So people think that it's a good thing. Yes, think about it. Alcohol is called Spirit. And when you think of the word spirit, you think about yourself and your enthusiasm for some things, all of a sudden, it has a very positive connotation.

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

dance and music is called an art.

00:31:24--> 00:31:53

Art. So all of a sudden, it seems innocent. It seems like fun. It seems like something that you should do. And one more thing, usury is called interest. So when you hear the word interest, you're like, yeah, it's in my best interest. I am interested in that. So when these words are changed in this way, something that was wrong, seems to be so good and innocent and appealing. And you're like, yeah, why not?

00:31:55--> 00:32:39

So over here, you he bugged him ILA Berlin zoo fell coli, hurrah. So they spread negative things about the Prophet, false propaganda, and it's all lies, but they're just presented in such a positive way, in such an impressive way in such an appealing way that people follow when OSHA or Buka and if your Lord wanted Mefa, or knew who man not far Alou who they did it, meaning Allah subhanaw taala could have stopped these people from spreading such false propaganda about his messengers, but he let it happen. Why? Because he was going to test his messengers. And he was also going to test the people that do they follow every impressive word? Or do they analyze it? They use

00:32:39--> 00:33:26

their mind and their reason? You know, just like to fail Ben Umrah dosi, the companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what are the Allahu Anhu when he came to Makkah, this was at the time when he was a mushrik. He came to Makkah, and people that told him that look, there is a port over here in our city. And he is very influential. And make sure you don't even hear him. Don't listen to him. Because he has split apart our community. He has broken our families. And he has created a lot of chaos. He performed this weird kind of very effective magics of be very, very careful. So they use the Crowfall coal, okay, they exaggerated the matter of the prophets of Allah Islam so much that

00:33:26--> 00:34:09

they literally frightened to Fabian Amara to see what happened. He was so afraid, he actually stuffed his ears with cotton or wool, just so that he wouldn't even accidentally listen to the prophets a lot. So in other words, he put earplugs, okay. And then he was doing the wealth of the Kaaba. And while he was doing the left, he thought to himself that I am, you know, a person who has some intelligence, at least I know what is good and bad when it comes to poetry. Right? I know what makes sense and what doesn't make sense. Why am I so afraid? If what this man says makes sense? I can accept it. And if what he says doesn't make sense to me, then I will reject it. You know, I'm

00:34:09--> 00:34:55

not that impressionable. In other words, I have some reasoning. So he decided to listen to the prophets of Allah seven. And he did. And when he heard, he said, Of course, this is the truth. He embraced Islam. And when he went back to his people, so many more embraced Islam. So this is the test Allah subhanaw taala allows Xochimilco to be out there. Why? So that he tests people that which of them uses their mind, and which of them just follows others blindly. And we are in that same test as well. Because sometimes it happens that somebody uses very impressive words, big words, big terms, or they take the names of big people, and you're like, yeah, they must be saying the truth.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And then we start listening to them. We start doing exactly what they're telling us.

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

But if you analyze what they're saying,

00:35:03--> 00:35:45

Does it contradict the Quran? Or does it conform to it? Many times, you'll see that what they're saying contradicts the Quran, but still people will follow them. Why? Because this speaks so eloquently. There are so impressive. So this is the test that do you just follow blindly? Or do you use your mind? You know, this is just like little children, what happens? They see something on television. And they're like, Yeah, this is exactly what I want. But their parents know that the reality is very, very different. When they're promoting a certain product on television, what is it called their advertising a certain product? infomercials, for 30 minutes, sometimes, you will see

00:35:45--> 00:36:29

that same ad repeating again, and again and again, and how they will show testimonials. And they will show this product is perfect for everything, it will solve all your problems. If you buy this blender, you will become so healthy, you just need to spend $90 Right now, and you will become the healthiest person on this planet, you will be in shape, because you'll be having all these great smoothies, which is blender will allow you to have so what happens some people they're like, Yeah, this is exactly what I want, immediately, they call and other people they're like, let me just check Consumer Reports. Let me just check what others have to say about this.

00:36:30--> 00:36:37

And then they do a little bit of research. And then they find out that it's not as great as they present it.

00:36:38--> 00:36:42

So this is a test that you just follow, or do you use your mind.

00:36:43--> 00:37:23

So like in my psych lecture, a week ago, my prof was saying how advertisement is basically, they put something that you like that they know that you like, for example, fruits, they look beautiful, they look delicious. And then they put things that you like beside things that they want you to buy, so that you your mind unconsciously makes the connection that oh, it's something I like, with something that I don't really know what it's about. And they just make you think that you do like it and that you do need it. Yes. And they make it so urgent that you have to buy now otherwise you will lose this great chance. So many techniques are used. And just like in worldly matters, we try to be very

00:37:23--> 00:38:08

cautious. And we don't buy everything that's shown on television. Just like that when it comes to the matters of religion. We shouldn't just accept anything that anyone is saying. Use your mind. Use your reason that Allah has given you use the logic that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you with refer to the book of Allah, what does the Quran say about this? If it's according to the Quran, well and good but if it contradicts the religion, then you're not going to take it no matter what kind of argument the person can present. So we'll OSHA or a book Amma Farah Lu who further whom so leave them warmer and that which you have done when they fabricate, leave these people and all that they

00:38:08--> 00:38:52

fabricate. What does it mean by this, that ignore the lies ignore the rumors that they spread about you ignore their false propaganda, if it was, Allah's Will, He could have stopped them, but he let it happen. Let them be ignore them, you just focus on your work, there are people very active, you know, spreading false propaganda about you, you should become very active in what in conveying the message, if you start listening to them, and you get bothered by them, you won't be able to do anything. Because it happens that if somebody is lying about you spreading wrong things about you, if you start listening to them if you start investigating, okay, so who found out and what was said,

00:38:52--> 00:39:31

and what exactly was mentioned, you will lose that, you know, happiness from your heart, you will be worried you will be sad, you will be depressed, you will be crying, and you cannot focus on your work anymore. So the prophets of Allah isn't installed, ignore these people and just focus on your work. We can also apply this to our lives, that sometimes it happens that you're browsing something on the internet related to some research that you have to do for your homework or your assignment. And what happens an advertisement on the side. So what happens, you click on that advertisement, and then there's a link, and then you go on that link. And then there's another link and you go on that

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

link. Where were you? I forgot? What were you researching? What were you reading? I forgot how much time has gone by two hours. You know what I'm talking about? Yes. Just like that you're watching a video online, because somebody sent you an amazing lecture. Okay. So you watch 10 minutes of it. And then you're like, Okay, let me just see what else is there. And on the side, there's so many suggestions and you're like, Okay, I wonder what this is. So you click

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

And you watch 15 minutes gone there and then you click another 110 minutes gone, then you click another 120 minutes gone, then click another one three minutes gone there, how much time is wasted like this?

00:40:11--> 00:40:19

How much time is wasted like this? And sometimes the kind of titles that are given, must watch must listen.

00:40:21--> 00:41:16

No, it's not necessary. It's not necessary Your time is of more importance. So for that home, leave them don't fall for every advertisement, don't fall for every propaganda use your mind for those whom we may have thrown leave them and that which they fabricate. What and lead us so that it inclines LA to it. What inclines do it have either two hearts of who Alladhina those people law not you may know that they believe will alpha in the hereafter. Let us law is from the roulette or assault Lane Yeah. And so will are silly means to incline toward something to lean towards something. For example, it is that US law Illa Hadith he he that he was listening attentively to his

00:41:16--> 00:42:06

speech that he bent in order to listen, he came forward in order to listen. It was like somebody's saying something and you were working in the kitchen. And you hear a word or two, and you want to listen. So what do you do, you leave what you're doing and you go to them and you start listening. This is what solo is. So littles law is inclined Ilahi to it either to ladina laomi Nona Bill alpha, whose hearts are inclined towards oprofile Cow, who takes interest in Zoltan Falco, who gets affected by zoo Falco, not everybody, only those people who don't believe in the hereafter, who have a non serious attitude about the hereafter. Because when someone, their goal is just to have fun in

00:42:06--> 00:42:44

this world, they just want to have a good time they just want to enjoy, then what happens. They take every opportunity to have fun. And if there's anyone who's talking about serious things, they don't want to listen to them. And if somebody tells them, You should not listen to this person who's reciting the Quran, or who's teaching such and such, they're like, Yeah, exactly. This is why it's amazing that people they claim to those fatawa that they like that allow them to do what they want to take the example of music for instance.

00:42:45--> 00:43:33

There are clear evidences in the Quran and Sunnah to prove that, you know, musical instruments, they're not allowed, the only instrument that is permissible is which one, the Deaf clear a Hadees and clear the field of the verses of the Quran that show that music is not allowed. And at the same time, there are people who say that it is allowed based on some evidences which are not that strong. But anyway, both of these opinions are there. Correct. Now there are some people who will say that so and so says music is allowed. And they take that opinion to heart, they follow it. But at the same time, that person also says other things and they don't follow them.

00:43:34--> 00:44:13

They will only take what they like. Why? Because they want to listen to music. They want to enjoy music. So who do they like those who tell them music is okay and those who tell them music is not okay. They don't want to listen to them at all. What he does La La he have either to live in LA you know, Bill after so who filed for Zuko Falco? Those who don't believe in the hereafter those who don't fear the hereafter those who don't have any interest in that they're just concerned about this dunya they get affected by his approval code. And this tells us that false statements do not impress everyone.

00:44:15--> 00:44:57

False statements do prefer count does not impress everyone there are only some people. In fact, majority of the people they get affected by the colorful code, but the one who believes in the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala saves him while he or though who and so they are pleased with it. They are satisfied with it. They're happy with it. They're happy with what that's often called. So and so sad music is allowed. I'm very happy with this fatwa, Wali architetti foo, and so that they commit mad at which whom they mock the reformed ones who are committing, meaning they can continue to commit what they were doing, they can continue to do what they were doing previously. Why?

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Because now someone said

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

that you can do it. So hey, that's an evidence for me that's a proof for me, I follow them, I will adhere to it when the 34 man whom macdaddy phone, so, such false speech such words they become a motivation for their evil deeds, they continue to do their evil deeds, but those who believe in the hereafter than Allah subhanaw taala saves them

00:45:23--> 00:45:25

let's listen to the recitation of these verses

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


00:45:30--> 00:45:32


00:45:33--> 00:45:36


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


00:45:39--> 00:45:40

waha shall now

00:45:41--> 00:45:42


00:45:49--> 00:45:50

do you mean

00:45:54--> 00:45:57

what do you may know

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

in song

00:46:10--> 00:46:11


00:46:13--> 00:46:15

being in Nardo

00:46:16--> 00:46:17


00:46:19--> 00:46:22

see one gene you hear about

00:46:23--> 00:46:26

your Hema boom Isla

00:46:28--> 00:46:29


00:46:31--> 00:46:31

what else

00:46:42--> 00:46:47

well he or Lady either

00:46:50--> 00:46:51


00:46:53--> 00:47:01

34 wali up or 3434 hone

00:47:03--> 00:47:59

the word study for telephone from the root letters of raw fat and curve is to peel and from this icky Talofa is to acquire, to commit to perpetrate. So they keep doing what they were doing previously because it becomes like an excuse for them. That's what they like it conforms to their desires. And so they hold on to it. At the beginning of the surah we learned that Allah subhanaw taala has Woodyard of little Mati when nor he has made the darkness and the light, both evil and good exist. Some people they desire evil, they like that. So what happens, they hold on to it. And anyone who tells them you can do it, they adhere very firmly to their words. Any, you know, slogan,

00:47:59--> 00:48:16

any statement that promotes it, they follow that and on the other hand, there are those who want good, those who seek goodness. So what happens even though there's so much evil out there, they will find that

00:48:17--> 00:48:22

they will leave that evil and they will find that high and that is what they will do and follow
