Lesson number 142 Surah Al Islam is number 11 to 22. I have a question for you the surah what is it called? Surah to Israel why?

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

Exactly because the first I mentioned what the Israel journey right? And this surah is also called sudut Bani Israel. Why? Because there is mentioned of Bani Israel right at the beginning of the surah. Okay. So inshallah today we will begin from ayah, number 11

00:00:35 --> 00:01:07

where the URL Insano and man supplicates. Yeah, the room, he makes the ah, he calls upon Allah, who I'll insert know, the men, meaning human beings in general, because remember that when the word Insan is used, and it refers to people in general. So people, generally what do they do they make dua for the Sheree with the evil, they ask for evil,

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

they hope for bad

00:01:11 --> 00:02:06

dua who like his da, meaning the way he should be making for what Bill hate for good, the way people should actually be asking for good? What do they do instead? They ask for evil. Why? What's the reason? Because we're Cannell internal human beings they are ever our jeweler very, very hasty. Our jewelers from the root letters are in Jeem love and urge Allah to be hasty. When a person is being impatient, and he cannot wait anymore, so he wants things to be done already. He wants to have something in his hand already, even though it is before it's due time. Because for everything there is a set time, right? For everything there is a due time. But human beings in general, how are they

00:02:06 --> 00:02:35

are you extremely hasty. So for example, if you put something in the oven, and the recipe says it's going to be ready in 60 minutes, what happens generally, if you really badly want those cookies, what do you do? Every 30 minutes you go and look. Alright, and some people, they become so impatient that they keep opening the door of the oven. And when they do that the heat escapes, so it takes even longer? Well, if the instruction says 60 minutes, then you cannot have them ready within 30 minutes.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:55

And generally what happens before we follow any recipe we check, how long is it going to take? Right? If it's five hours, leave it forget it. If it's 30 minutes, yeah, I'll give it a try. Why? Because human beings in general, they are scheduled, extremely hasty, extremely impatient, they want things to be done quickly.

00:02:56 --> 00:03:04

In this is what has been mentioned, human nature is being described. And what is human nature, impatient and hasty.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:50

If you think about it, what is one of the most difficult things to do that we find sub patients? Whether it's dealing with people, or it's waiting for others, or it is, you know, completing a task? What is that we find most difficult sub endurance, sticking to the plan, right? We want things to be done very, very quickly. We want things to happen immediately. And when things don't happen immediately, when things don't change, then what is the general attitude of people? Are they happy? Are they unhappy? They become unhappy? Do they remain positive? Or do they become negative? extremely negative? And in that negativity, what happens? People don't even realize what they're

00:03:50 --> 00:04:19

saying? What they're asking for. Right? And instead of asking Allah for good, what do they do in their frustration in their anger? What do they ask for evil? For something that is much worse? So that has been mentioned where they will insane will be Shari Dora who will hate people ask for evil the way they should be asking for good, or the way they typically ask for good.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:59

Life is not easy. It is difficult. And this is the reason why we say this life is a test. And in a test, what happens things are going against your wishes. Things are going against your desires. You want to get up and walk around but you're required to sit in place. You want to have the freedom to look around everywhere, but you're required to only focus on your answer sheet, right? There's many many restrictions. So with these restrictions, what happens is that in life, people become impatient. They want things to change. But the thing is that for everything is it you time for it

00:05:00 --> 00:05:55

Everything is a new time. This universe is what? space, time and matter, right? So for anything that is existing, it can only be over after its time has passed. For anyone that is living, they can only go away when their time has passed. Right? For anything to grow for anything to develop for anything to change color, what is necessary, the passage of time? Correct passage of time. So, for example, certain people, they love fall colors, right? But you cannot expect these beautiful fall colors in the midst of the summer? Or can you know, you can't. So what do you need? You need to wait, you need to have some, you need to be patient. But typically what happens we lose our patients. And we don't

00:05:55 --> 00:06:43

even think about what we are asking for. Instead of asking Allah for height, we begin asking for Shep. So for example, a person becomes sick. They have a headache. All right, and what do they want that headache to go away? That illness to be over? So they wait for an hour, they wait for one day, but the next day again, that headache is there. For some people, they keep hoping for improvement. And other people, they become so disappointed, so frustrated that they begin saying I wish I was dead already. I wish I could cut my head off. I wish my head was not hurting something else was hurting. Think about what you're saying. Sometimes women get so frustrated with their children, they

00:06:43 --> 00:07:18

begin praying, why did I even get married? Why did I choose to have children or sometimes studies they become so difficult, so intense. That out of frustration out of impatience, we begin saying things that are very, very negative. People ask for evil for themselves, for their children, for their families, for their money for their home, for their work, whatever it may be. But generally, this happens with us in our frustration, in our disappointment in our anger. What do we do we begin asking for shelf.

00:07:19 --> 00:08:02

And instead we should be asking Allah subhanaw taala for what? For hate, for goodness, whether an insert will be Shari dua, who will hide what kind of Insano or jeweler? Let me ask you a very straightforward question. Has anyone Have you ever wished, at any point in time that they were dead, that they had died? That they were not living? Perhaps because they failed an exam? Or perhaps because a terrible mistake happened? Or, you know, sometimes in childhood, it happens many children, you know, and they do something really, really dumb. And they don't want to face the reality? What do they begin asking for? I wish I could die right now I wish I could have right now. Now. Now now.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:51

Please, Allah please, please, please. Think about it. If our wishes were fulfilled immediately, and we died the instant we wanted to die, or we suffered from some harm the instant we wanted to suffer from it. Then what would become of us? What would remain of us? What would we do? Think about it. This is the reason why our wishes are not always fulfilled. Because sometimes we think that something is good for us whereas in reality, it is bad for us. And sometimes we think that something is bad for us whereas in reality it is good for us who knows the reality. Allah subhanaw taala knows. So if he has decided if he has decreed life for you, if he has decreed certain illness for

00:08:51 --> 00:09:37

you, if he has decreed a certain situation for you in your life, remember, that Allah subhanaw taala knows better. So trust his decision, trust his decree. And whenever things are getting rough, whenever things are getting difficult, then instead of asking for show, ask Allah for good because why are we put into difficulty? Why? So that we reach out to Allah subhanaw taala remember at the beginning of the surah what did we learn a letter Turkey lumen Dhoni wa Akela rely upon Allah reach out to him. But it's unfortunate that when we do reach out to him, generally we are asking for something that is bad. Instead of something that is good. inside of us is 11 Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:37 --> 00:09:59

says hello you are Judah. Hola. Hola, nessa Shaohua Styr Jalla whom Belhaj la cobia Elaine him Angelou that if Allah was to hasten for people, the evil that they wish for, as he hastens for them the good then their turn would have been ended for them. Meaning the nobody would be living here. Nobody would be surviving. Because people can wish for many evil things.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:13

If and if every person's evil wish was fulfilled, then what would happen? Nobody would be alive. For example, a particular individual, they hit a particular family member, what do they want, I want them to die, I want them to die, I want them to go away.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:57

It's sad. But these are the thoughts that come to our minds. So if such wishes were fulfilled instantly, then what would happen? Nobody would be alive, nobody would survive. But the funny thing is that people who think negatively they increase in their negativity, when their wishes are not fulfilled, they become even worse. This is the reason why we have been prohibited from praying for death, even that don't make dua that Oh Allah, please cause me to die. No, don't do that. Instead, when things are getting very difficult, and when a person feels that you know, surviving each day, each moment is becoming harder and harder. Then what should he do he should make to other Allahumma

00:10:57 --> 00:11:39

Heaney, man cannot hire hire only that oh Allah keep me alive as long as living is good for me. What the What funny either Cannington were fat hydralie that take me in depth when death is good for me. Because it's possible that because of the extreme pain and agony that a person is living with, he thinks that death would be better for him. However, however, what happens they survive that extreme pain and agony. And what happens? Things are back to normal things are back to normal. Doesn't it happen? That sometimes you get hurt to get an injury? And you wonder, is there any pain that is greater than this?

00:11:41 --> 00:12:28

Is there any pain that could be greater than this? This headache, or this wound, or this broken arm that I have? Or this extreme pain that I'm having in my body? Is there anything even worse than this, and you think your pain tolerance has reached its maximum. And if you were to hurt even a little bit more, you would die, but you don't die, you survive. So when you reach the peak of pain, when you reach the peak of hardship, don't think it's all over. Allah subhanaw taala brought you here. And he's going to take you through it as well. You know, Maria, or his son, the Mother Teresa or his son, what happened to her when she was in her labor pains in the Quran and has mentioned that

00:12:28 --> 00:13:14

how she said that I wish MIT to cobbler Heather, I wish I was dead before this. Welcome to newseum and sia and I was something forgotten. You know, nobody knew me. I had died long, long time ago, I was unknown because that pain was very, very hard upon her mean for a girl to go through the pains of labor is not easy. And then it wasn't just given birth. It was what was after the birth, taking that child to face the people, it was very difficult. So things they do get difficult in life. But remember that after every difficulty in sha Allah, there will be change, there will be improvement.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:58

In this life, what happens? We see constant changes, right? I mean, the changing seasons, what do they teach us? Winter is not forever. Right? That's the one hope that keeps us going in Sharla. Right? Because when you see the first snow, snowfall, and when you feel the first chilling wind and cetera, then what happens? You wonder, how am I going to survive? But then you remind yourself, yeah, we went through it last year also. And we went through this the year before that also, that our hamdulillah after Winter, Spring came in a couple of months in sha Allah, the same thing will happen again. Right. So what's the lesson over here that in difficulty, don't despair of Allah's

00:13:58 --> 00:13:59

mercy?

00:14:00 --> 00:14:19

When things are tough, don't despair. Don't give up. Don't give up. Don't ask for more trouble, have sovereign, have sovereign. Calm down, relax in sha Allah this will be over. ask Allah for ease. ask Allah for Hey,

00:14:20 --> 00:14:59

you know in the Hadith we learned that once the prophets of Allah Edison was giving the general hookah and a man he interrupted him, a Bedouin man, he interrupted him. Now imagine what was going on. And this man, he just stands up in the middle and he says, You have a suit Allah salAllahu Salam, our animals are dying or children are hungry, please make dua that Allah gives us rain. So the Prophet saw a lot is going on right there. And then he lifted up his hands and he made dua, and before he even he put his hands down from Dora. What happened? The sky was full of clouds, and there was no sign of any cloud before. And before he even descended from the member. There was so much

00:15:00 --> 00:15:38

Train pouring down, that literally His beard was what was wet, water was dripping from his beard. So it rained the entire day and the day after and the day after the day after until the next Friday was constantly raining, so much so that the streets were flooded. So the next year, Morocco thought the Prophet said a lot of them was addressing the people and the same men, and according to others and other men, he got up and he said, you know, sort of loss of a lot is going on, there's so much rain, our houses are getting destroyed and our animals are drowning. Please make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for us. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam raised his hands and he said Allahumma Hello, Elena,

00:15:38 --> 00:15:46

whenever Elena that all Allah, please send the rain around us, and not on us directly.

00:15:47 --> 00:16:28

Meaning even over here, the Prophet saw a lot and I didn't ask for sharp. He didn't say, Yeah, Allah, we've had enough friend, please stop the rain. Because you never know. If Allah subhanaw taala does not approve of such a statement, then we would be deprived of rain, we would be deprived of blessings. So sometimes it happens that when we have too many blessings, we start asking for Shall we start asking for evil. Right? That when we have too much food, for example, we begin to say negative things that this is too much food, how are we going to eat? Oh Allah, that's enough. You know, there's only so much that I can eat so much that I can consume. Don't say such things. Don't

00:16:28 --> 00:16:53

say sharp don't ask for sure. Even at that time asked for good. Because sometimes when we have too many blessings, again, we show ingratitude at that time, and that ingratitude is what shelf asking Allah for evil. So my other insan will be shall read or who will hate what kind of Insano I do. Man is ever hasty.

00:16:54 --> 00:17:07

And the thing is that every test, every trial, every difficulty in life, what does it do? Does it make you stronger or weaker, it makes you stronger, only if you do Sobral on it.

00:17:09 --> 00:17:23

Only if you do suffer on it only if you endure it patiently. Only if you accept it, then when you leave it when you've passed that difficulty, then you feel stronger and you are better prepared for future

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

Right.

00:17:26 --> 00:18:06

Which means that if a person does not do something on the present trial on the present difficulty, then what will happen in the future, things will be easier or more difficult. They will be even more difficult. You know just yesterday we learned about the Bani Israel that how the Babylonians when they had overcome them, and they had a pressing the hood, the Bani Israel in their prophet. What did he tell the Bani Israel to repent to Allah and to change their ways, but they did not pay any heed to the words of the Prophet. And instead they revolted against the Babylonians. And when they revolted, what happened.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:25

Things got better. They got even more difficult, so much so that their men, women, children were killed, and even the temple was destroyed. It was destroyed, ruined completely. So remember the trials and difficulties, they're there to teach us.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:30

We have to do sub and we have to become stronger.

00:18:31 --> 00:19:01

At that time, don't seek greater problems. Don't put yourself in more difficulty. Rather, endure the trial with patience. And in sha Allah things will get easier because in Namale are three usara with difficulty is ease. And if you don't bear that difficulty, patiently, what will happen that difficulty will get even worse. It will get even bigger.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:25

What John The Leila when the hara a attain, and we have made the night and the day I attained to signs. The night is a miracle is a sign and the day is also a miracle a sign a sign of what both of them are signs of Allah's withdraw his power, his knowledge, his wisdom.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:31

And Allah subhanaw taala makes us reflect on the night and the day.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:42

From a homeowner area to lelee from a homeowner. So we erase I have the lane the sign of the night.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:59

My homeowner is from the route letters mean how well macro and macro is to erase and remove the effect of something to erase something and remove its effect also completely. So my how now we erase at Elaine this

00:20:00 --> 00:20:54

I have the night, meaning the night when it comes, it doesn't stay forever. Or does it? Know what happens? As each hour passes? The night, it is wiped off, it is erased, it reduces until a time comes when there is no sign of the night in the sky. There is no darkness instead. What do you see everywhere light, light light. So much so that sometimes it's difficult to see outside without your glasses. Right? So from a Helena aviator lane, we erase the sign of the night, meaning the night it comes but then it is erased. And what is it replaced by the day? What your honor and we have made Atlanta have the sign of the day meaning the day, we have made it mobile slot and mobile slot from

00:20:54 --> 00:21:06

buffer. What does buffer mean vision to see. So mobile server, meaning that which sees in other words, we have made the day bright and clear, visible.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:39

So completely opposite the night is such that it is macro, meaning it's erased. So you don't see anything there's no light. And the day is the exact opposite. It's bright, it's visible. Some have said that this is what it means is that if the lane and eight and a half, I had the label the sign of the night it refers to the sign the miracle that you see in the sky in the night. And what is that the moon? And I had an aha what is that? The sun?

00:21:40 --> 00:22:28

So the moon and the sun? How are they very different? The moon Allah says from a homeowner I had to lay the sine of the night the moon, we erase it, meaning every night what happens to the moon it is different than the way it was before. When the moon is full, does it always remain full? Does it always remain full? No. With every passing night, what happens? It shrinks in its size, it shrinks it shrinks to the point that the night comes when you don't even see the moon. Right? You don't even see it from a homeowner Iota lane. On the other hand, the sun How is it mobile, Sara and Mazzara will then mean from absorbed to give vision, one that gives visibility, one that enables you to see,

00:22:29 --> 00:23:00

and isn't the sunlight that it gives you the ability to see because if there was no light, how would we see? So completely opposite? why has Allah subhanaw taala made the night in one way and the day different? Why is there this 24 hour you know cycle in which a section is dark and a section is bright. And the moon you know with the passage of days what happens it increases it decreases and with that we have months and we have years we have the sense of time, why

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

later, but also that you may seek Fabula middle have become the bounty of your Lord, meaning if there was no night, then when would you rest? And if there was no day, then how would you see and do your work and earn something make some money make a living surviving this life how would you so this difference has been kept so that there is a system there is a structure there are ups and there are downs in life why? So that there is a structure? Because if it was always nighttime, or if it was always daytime? Then how would we make sense of time? How would we how would we appreciate the good and how would we seek refuge with Allah against evil Lita or Fabula Mira become while he Talamo and

00:23:55 --> 00:24:46

so that you may know either the Sydney the number of Sydney in Sydney center singularity center year. So, either the city in the number of years how many years have you lived because with this moon and the sun what happens you have these calendars right? You have the daily timetable also right a daily schedule a 24 hour cycle and then you have a weekly cycle and then you have a monthly cycle and then you have an annual sense also either the sin one ASAP ASAP accounting meaning with this sun and moon you have a calendar and with this calendar you are able to keep account keep account of what of time if there was no night and day How would you know how many years you've

00:24:46 --> 00:24:59

lived? If there were no months then how would you know when the month of Ramadan is when the month of Muharram is well hisab will Kula che in for Salah with of sila and everything we have set out in detail topsail

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

meaning detailed explanation, meaning it's been explained in detail clearly.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:09

So Allah subhanaw taala has explained important matters to us clearly.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:15

Now, what do we learn in this ayah? That in this life,

00:25:16 --> 00:25:24

Allah subhanaw taala has created different different things in this world, everything is not the same? Or is it?

00:25:25 --> 00:26:10

Is it the same? No huge difference? Just look at time because in the previous idea, the main problem that people have is with what time? Why does it take too long? Why am I not 16? Already? When will I turn 20? And when will I go to university already? And when will I start work already? And when will I pay this off already? And when will I get married already? And when will I have children already time is something that we have a big problem with? Why is it that we get impatient because things take too long, so long that if we have to wait five seconds for our phone to open up, even that is a problem, right? If we have to wait for a minute for a page to load, even that is a problem. So in

00:26:10 --> 00:26:22

this ayah, Allah subhanaw taala is making us appreciate time, time. Appreciate it, how Allah subhanaw taala has made it and what benefit there is in it.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:44

Now we see that there is night and there is day, there is the moon and there is the sun. Right? And likewise in life also, there are times that are difficult, dark and gloomy. And there are other times which are easy, happy, full of fun and pleasure. Right?

00:26:45 --> 00:27:29

If Knight was there forever, like for example, in the winter, nights become really, really long. Does that make things difficult for you sometimes? What happens at six o'clock you get sleepy, why? Because it's dark outside. And you have so much work to do. Right? In the summer, what happens when the days are really, really long nights are short, then what happens? You're exhausted and you want to sleep already, but you have to wait for Russia and you've barely slept that you have to wake up for 5g. So you see this difference that Allah subhanaw taala has kept in the day and the night. And the differences that Allah subhanaw taala has kept within our lives that certain years full of fun,

00:27:29 --> 00:28:19

and certain years full of difficulty. Why? Because there is good in everything. Even though there is evil to it. Remember that the other side is good. Sometimes it happened at certain days of your life extremely difficult. Very, very tough. You know, like people say, I had a very tough time when I was going through that a very tough time. But that tough time was also there in your life. Why? For something good? For something good? What is that good? Perhaps you've already seen it? Or perhaps you haven't seen it yet, but there is good. And you see if it was daytime constantly, when would we rest? If it was happiness, always pleasure enjoyment always, then what happened, we would get sick

00:28:19 --> 00:29:09

of that even, we would get bored of that even. So, realize that this time is something that is beyond our control. Right? Time is something beyond our control, we cannot control the night we cannot control the day. Likewise, the passage of every hour, the passage of every minute, the passage of every day, every week, every month, we cannot stop it, we cannot stop it, we cannot slow it down. We cannot fast forward it. It will go at its own speed. Right? It will go at its own pace. What happens is that we get so stuck with or it's taking too long. Instead of focusing on that, what should our focus be upon? Really? What should it be on? That what am I supposed to do right now?

00:29:09 --> 00:29:15

What can I do right now to make this time memorable? Also,

00:29:16 --> 00:29:59

you know, for instance, you start something new, and you're finding it very difficult, you're scared, but other people tell you relax, you'll enjoy it. And you wonder what is there to enjoy over here. Like I remember when my first child was born, I was told by so many people enjoy every day. Because you know this time children grow too quickly. And I was like, Yeah, I enjoy the sleepless nights and enjoy the days when I'm changing a diaper every you know other hour. What's there to enjoy here, right? These thoughts come to your mind. But yes, there is hardship there is difficulty. But there are also many cute moments.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:51

Write that you cannot enjoy litter. So if you just focus on the hardship, sleepless nights, too many diapers, too many, this and too many that too much noise, don't focus on the problems. Don't focus on the hardship, focus on what? Focus on one on the positive on the face. So you see, it's all about how you think. Because there is nothing in life that is good, except that it is attached with some hardship, some kind of difficulty. If you want to enjoy the best meal, why don't you have to pay for it? Right, you have to pay for it, or you have to prepare it. Nothing comes free in life, nothing good and nothing bad. And everything that is good, it has some kind of hardship attached to it. So

00:30:51 --> 00:31:49

don't focus on the hardship only focus on the good and you will be a happier and more productive person. Because time will pass it will take its time and it will be over. But do something before that time escapes before life is over. Why? Because we're cooler inside in every human being under them. Now who we have attached to him. We have fastened to him thought era who his thought if his actions fear up to his neck. Every human being alumna who alumnus from the letters, lambs, I mean, lose zoom, and resume is to attach something with another. You know, for example, to make something less him on yourself is to make something compulsory on yourself, that you must do it, you don't

00:31:49 --> 00:32:19

have an option, you have to do it, it's with you. Right, you cannot separate yourself from it. So as of now who we have attached to every person we have stuck to every person, you know, it's like a chip inside a phone. It's there. So likewise, every human being what is stuck to him, What is attached to him, what is it that he cannot separate from blah era who his thought is? Where is it attached for your own Okay, to his neck.

00:32:20 --> 00:32:48

When something is attached to your, you know, hand for example, you can use your other hand and become free from it. When something is tied to your neck, your neck is tied, what does it mean that you are being driven by it? If something is attached to your hand, it's pulling you you can pull back. But when something is attached to your neck, what does it mean? You are literally being driven by it dragged by, you cannot leave it.

00:32:49 --> 00:33:30

And this is the reason why when you put a leash on an animal, okay, where's the collar? Where's the collar on the waist? On the paw? On the tail? On the ear? Where's it on the neck? All right. So fit room okay. Now tie it literally means a bird that which flies from the same root slot? And what is the thought? Airplane because it flies right? So by it literally means bird that which flies, and over here what is meant by thought it is the actions of a person the deeds of a person. Why are they called thought because with your deeds, you either fly high

00:33:31 --> 00:33:32

or you fly low.

00:33:33 --> 00:33:38

If your deeds are good, you will fly high. And if your deeds are bad used by law,

00:33:39 --> 00:34:15

deeds, they matter a lot actions they matter a lot. So every person his actions are tied to his neck, meaning he cannot separate himself from his deeds. Once you've performed an action, it's with you. It's with you. You cannot detach yourself from it. And what that means is that you have to now face its consequences. Either you repent or you face its consequences. What color in sand and alumna who thought era who fear Oh no.

00:34:17 --> 00:34:47

Well no who did you law who and we will produce for Him we will bring out for him yeah well piano on the Day of Judgment Kitab and a book, yellow car who he will meet it meaning each person will meet his book matura one that is spread open laid out in front of him. We know who did you know who yomo chiamata Kitab in Yokohama and Shura, we a person when he performs an action when he does certain deeds, then what happens there are tied to him

00:34:48 --> 00:34:59

that he cannot get rid of them. He cannot detach himself from them. And those deeds, where are they? Where are they? They're being recorded in a book and this book

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

Each person who will meet his record he will find his book were mature, laid open in front of him. In front of him before him he will find it meaning he cannot run away from his deeds.

00:35:15 --> 00:36:02

What happens in this life? We say certain things we do certain things and we forget about them completely. We live as though we never did them we act as though we never said those words. But you know what, they are preserved in our record and on the day of judgment that record will be placed in front of us Yelapa whom I'm sure each person will find his record displayed before him so that he can see it. And what's in that book everything that a person has done in total PMI a 13, we learn unit bowl in Sonoma even be my Adama what a horror. Every person will be informed that day of what he sent ahead and what he kept back what he did, and what he did not do, what he gave and what he

00:36:02 --> 00:36:51

delayed. What he did early, and what he postponed, each person will find his deeds, every kind of deed. So to delta is seven to eight from a urinal with Allah rotten. Hi, Ron, Yarrow. If a person has done even an atom's weight of good what will happen, he will find it. Will Miyama Miss Allah dilaton Chawan. Yellow, and whoever does even an atom's weight off evil, he will find he will see it, meaning he will see it recorded in his record. Because every person his deeds are died to him. You know, these days, for example, your library card for instance, okay, let's say, a year ago, you borrowed a book, and then you didn't return it on time. And then three months later, somebody did

00:36:51 --> 00:37:32

you a favor, and they just Winton left the books in the library. All right. But you weren't collecting all that fine. And you say, You know what, forget it, I'm not gonna go to the library anymore. But then, a year later, what happens? You need to go to the library, and you say, I've lost my card, can I please have a new card? And they say, Okay, what's your name? What's your address? What's your number? And when you give it to them, what happens? Your entire record shows up? And they said, before we can issue you a new card, you have to pay all this outstanding? Fine. Can you avoid it? Can you run away from it? No, because that entire record is where with your name. It is

00:37:32 --> 00:38:19

with your name, you cannot run away from it. Likewise, actions that we have done, perhaps nobody knows about it. Nobody knows about it. Our mother doesn't know our father doesn't know our sisters don't know. Nobody knows. But who knows? Allah subhanaw taala knows, where is it recorded in our record. And it is something that we cannot get rid off. You know, certain things, you hate them, you dislike them? What do you do, you just throw them in the garbage and move on. You leave them in your old house and you move on. You don't want it anymore to in your life, you leave it and you move on. But your actions, you can never abandon them and move on. They are in your record. So think before

00:38:19 --> 00:39:02

you do something, think before you say something, because it will be forever written in your record. And on the day of gentlemen, what's going to happen, this record is going to be displayed. It's going to be put before us matura. And you know when there's something, for example, a test paper that you didn't really do good on, but you still have to keep it for record sake. How do you keep it open? Where do you keep it folded in an envelope that is taped and hidden somewhere within folders and binders so that even you can't find it when you need it? Because it's embarrassing if it's displayed. But on the day of judgment, the entire record man shoot because nasura You know, it also

00:39:02 --> 00:39:36

means to publish. And when something is published, it goes in the papers. It goes in the media then what happens everywhere. So you'll call woman Shura. He won't be able to avoid it, he won't be able to look away from it. So think about what you are putting in your record what you are having recorded in your record. Because anything you do, it's tied to your neck. You cannot leave it. It won't leave you because actions, what happens they become like our identity don't.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:49

They become like our identity and our actions they drive us what we've done in the past motivates us to do that action again. This is why certain actions they become a habit and addiction.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:53

And when a person will find his record before him.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

He will be told it clock kita Buck read your book. Read it yourself.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:44

Hassan bacillary he said that even if a person was unlettered in this life, he didn't know how to read even a single letter. On the day of judgment, He told you look at your book, it will be readable by WHO, everybody. Because for information, it is displayed in different ways, not just in words, but also through graphs, right? Through pie charts, and so on and so forth. There's different ways of presenting information. So, in this record, the way deeds are recorded, it's not just in words, Allah knows best how deeds are recorded, but they will be recorded in such a way that anybody when they would see you then know exactly what the fate of that person is, if they have passed or if

00:40:44 --> 00:41:33

they have failed, if Croc kita back, you read your book yourself, meaning you don't even not need to put any effort because Kitab is mature. It's laid open before you your meeting. It's open in front of you. You don't need to exert any effort. Just look at your book and be your own judge. See what you deserve. Gaffar be enough seeker. leiomyoma sufficient? Are you yourself Aloma today I Lekha over yourself her Seba as a reckoner meaning you yourself are sufficient as a judge. You know where you stand. You know what you deserve? Because sometimes that happens at certain issues. Because you lack knowledge concerning it, you feel that you're not the best person to decide. So what do you do

00:41:33 --> 00:42:14

you go to somebody else who has more knowledge, please can you decide? Can you let me know what should be done? But a person's record when he will see? What does Allah say, ghafar be enough sickle yo, Mara Lika has Seba, you are sufficient, as a judge over yourself, meaning you know where you stand. You know what you've done, you know, what you've accomplished. And you know what you've left out, you know, the good that you did, and you know, the mistakes that you've made, you know, yourself and who knows you better than you Kapha be enough sickle yo Malaika Seba. This is reason why the Scholars have said that he who has made you a judge of your own self has indeed been fair to

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

you.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:33

Meaning if Allah is going to say to a person on the Day of Judgment, these are your deeds, you decide what you deserve, that Allah has indeed been fair, meaning, then if a person is punished, then that is not injustice, that is something that he deserves.

00:42:34 --> 00:43:07

Now, this Kitab, what do we learn from these is that this record of deeds, in which our every action, our words, they are being recorded, even some scholars argue that our intentions are being recorded, because we learned that if a person makes the intention of doing something good, than the Angelus will record a good deed for the person. And when he actually does that good deed, then what happens? More reward is written for him. Right? So this record, what is it? It's a real record?

00:43:09 --> 00:43:13

Don't think of the book of deeds as something metaphorical?

00:43:14 --> 00:43:52

No, it is a real, actual record, that will be read by who by you yourself. Each person will view his record, we'll see his Kitab because he will, he will meet it matura. You know, sometimes it happens that when you've taken the test, it was so bad that you don't want to ever see it. You don't want to see it, you just give it and you're like, I don't want to ever see it. Certain tests are returned to you. Certain exams are returned to you. And certain exams. You never see them. Once you hand it over to the examiner, that's it, you never see it. Right?

00:43:53 --> 00:44:14

If it was good, what do you say? Oh, nevermind Hamdulillah I don't mind. But if there was a problem with it, you want to know, Okay, where did I make the mistake? This Kitab our life record. This is going to be presented before us. And we are going to be told you judge yourself. You know where you stand.

00:44:15 --> 00:44:19

In a hadith we learn that a person when he will find his record, he will be amazed

00:44:21 --> 00:44:50

that, you know there are actions that I did, but they're not here. They're not recorded. Where's that good deed of mine? How come it's been erased? Where is it he won't find it. Then he will be reminded of some of the sins that he has committed. Because of which those good deeds, they will have no value. They will have no value. You don't like how sometimes it happens that on your computer screen you have certain applications or certain programs. They're there but they're not active.

00:44:51 --> 00:44:59

They're not active. Why? Because you're not connected to the internet. So you'll have you'll see the Skype icon but it's not blue. Right now.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:24

It's great, it's an active it's not working right now. So likewise the deeds are there but they're inactive, they will bring nor reward, they will bring no merit, no benefit. This is the reason why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man, the hub and the surah holes, Sahih Fattah, who fell uke theraphy, her minimalistic.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:56

Whoever loves to be pleased by his book of deeds, meaning, whoever wants to become happy on seeing their book of deeds. Would you like to be happy on seeing your book of deeds? Would you like to be happy that the sight of it even pleases you? The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, then he should fill it with excessive is the fall. Excessive is the fall, not just a little bit of stuff, but a lot to the point that you think it's too much.

00:45:57 --> 00:46:40

Excessive is still far. Why? Because sins, what do they do? They erase good deeds right? And what do good deeds do? What do good deeds do in return? They erase bad deeds in the Senate. You've hidden a say. So when we've done a bad deed, it's tied to us alone. Now, it's tied. However, when a person does is still fall, then the effect of that bad deed is erased, then a person isn't Allah's protection and he won't suffer from the consequences of his sins of his mistakes. So for Luke Silvia minister, and if you look at the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how much justified would he do

00:46:41 --> 00:47:01

70 times only think about salah Salah would he seek forgiveness during Salah where because we also say the same earth card but we don't think about it we don't do is too far you know from the heart. When is it that during Salah you do is too far okay Institute how what do you say?

00:47:03 --> 00:47:04

You don't say anything

00:47:05 --> 00:47:09

in sujood How do you seek forgiveness? And if you don't you should

00:47:10 --> 00:47:12

fail Josefina is default.

00:47:13 --> 00:47:18

Good Masha Allah, Allah homophily then be Kula who that dua. Yes,

00:47:19 --> 00:47:24

exactly. Subhanak Allahu Malabo, and I'll be handing Allahumma fearly

00:47:25 --> 00:47:48

Allah Allahu Moffett Lee. You know, sometimes we become lazy and we say, you have such a paneled Bill Arla three times, it's enough. Now says a panel of Bill Arla three times then also say, wonder of is the fall of seeking forgiveness. Then during Salah when else should you seek forgiveness between the two prostrations when you're sitting, what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say Rob Bill fairly, or Bill fairly?

00:47:49 --> 00:47:51

Or Bill fairly Arabic fairly?

00:47:52 --> 00:47:53

After Salla

00:47:54 --> 00:48:00

Allahu Akbar, a Stanford Allah, a Stanford Allah, Estelle Fetullah.

00:48:01 --> 00:48:27

In the morning, and in the evening, what did the Prophet salallahu Salam do is still far in one gathering? He would say stuff that Allah up to 70 times. So many times at the end of the gathering, what would he do? He would seek a stuffer. Right? So for uxcell fee, her Mina Lister fall in anyone who wishes to be happy on seeing the record of deeds, what should they do? Fill it with Christopher, fill it.

00:48:28 --> 00:49:07

So you know, when you're in that moment, when you want to kill time, when you want to pass time? What do you do in that? You tell yourself I should be doing thicker now, which? I don't know. I can't remember any. Yeah, I remember reading something really nice in a book, but I don't know where that book is. Yeah, I have it somewhere at home. But right now I'm in the car. And I can't even look away. You know, because I'm so focused on driving. But can your lips move at the same time? Yes. And what can they say something that's very easy. A Stafford allawah, two wheeler, Rod Bill fairly huddly. At what Bill fairly Allahumma fairly. seek forgiveness for luthier fee, her minimalistic

00:49:07 --> 00:49:08

file.

00:49:09 --> 00:49:22

Because just imagine seeing the record of deeds. Everything is written from the bad words that we've said to the prayers that we have missed. And really, honestly, if you judge yourself today, you judge yourself today.

00:49:23 --> 00:49:37

Would you allow yourself to go to paradise? If you were fair with yourself, given the good that you've done and the bad that you've done, the good deeds even Do you have confidence in them that your Nia was good and your method was good?

00:49:38 --> 00:49:59

Really be an honest judge for yourself. So the fact is, we are weak, we will make mistakes. But we have also been given a solution. seek forgiveness for sins that you did deliberately and since that you did accidentally since that, you know off and since that you don't know of

00:50:00 --> 00:50:11

because there's so many things that we have forgotten wrong things that we've done and we've completely forgotten. Isn't it amazing how we meet somebody, sometimes when we find out they're very upset with us why? We don't know.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:49

Think about it. They're upset and we don't even know. We said something, we short something, we did something that hurt their feelings and we didn't even realize. So think about the many mistakes that we make the many sins that we commit without even realizing. We don't realize but they are recorded. They are written ColorFabb enough SIECLE yo Malaika Seba so what is necessary is still found seeking forgiveness constantly repeatedly a stockfeed Allah to La let's listen to the recitation of these

00:52:04 --> 00:52:14

certain things, you can never delete them? Or can you? Can you give me an example of certain things that you cannot erase you cannot delete in real life?

00:52:16 --> 00:52:17

Okay, what about on social media?

00:52:19 --> 00:52:27

Are there things that once you upload or once they are in your history, you can never completely get rid of, even if you try.

00:52:29 --> 00:52:48

And sometimes it happens that you upload something and you say something, you write something, and what happens? You forget about it. And then you realize that other people are going through it constantly. People are bullied for them, and to the point that they will kill them selves, because they cannot change it.

00:52:49 --> 00:53:42

They cannot change it. So think before you do before it goes online, it goes in your record, and it's going to stay. You can tweet something and delete that tweet. Later, you can do that. But there are certain things which when they go in your record, you can't take them out. You cannot remove them. They are attached to you stuck to you, adhere to you, never leaving you. But there is only one way that you can make them inactive. How, by seeking forgiveness doing Toba and so far, yes, this will last longer. But one of the sisters shared with me that when she had a disabled child, she was so upset that this child couldn't move or you know, call out to her or anything. She said that Oh

00:53:42 --> 00:54:24

Allah, if you give me 10 children like this, I don't mind. But give me one that's going to call me Mama. And she only realized it when her second child was born with the same defect. And somebody reminded her that remember the DUA that you made, she said that I did so much so far. And I cried and I said, you know and she had to live with these two children span Allah it was a huge test. And I think about a year ago one of those one child passed away like she had a healthy baby after that and she had the fourth one now masala which is healthy and I asked her house, the older girl who's like the she said, I have reached a stage where my back cannot take handling this child. So she has

00:54:24 --> 00:54:38

to be in a home Subhanallah so we have to be very careful because this is another thing that you know the DUA when it's said at the time, when the law is accepted, then it cannot be deleted. We just have to live with the consequences.

00:54:39 --> 00:54:59

So be careful about what you ask for. You know sometimes when we learn about the award of suburb and trials in life and sometimes people begin to wish you know, I wish I had the straight trial so that I could also go to Jana don't ask for troubles and difficulties ask Allah for Aafia to keep you safe. Big

00:55:00 --> 00:55:08

As fitna is really not easy it's not easy it's very difficult to deal with ask Allah for protection
