I was a bit lame and she has on your dream Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim

00:00:07 --> 00:00:12

lesson number 153, sorbitol KEF is number 45 to 59.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:32

So, in the story that we have just read, we learned about the test of wealth and now in the following if we learn about how to cope with this test, how should a person think what should a person believe that will help him go through this test easily, successfully?

00:00:33 --> 00:00:37

What dribbler whom, and presented them meaning to the people

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

methylene highlighted duniya the example of the life of this world

00:00:45 --> 00:00:52

give them the example of the life of this world, so that they can understand its reality.

00:00:53 --> 00:01:12

And remember, the word method is used for example, to present something that is abstract in concrete terms to present something that is intangible in tangible terms and both the tangible and intangible the abstract and the concrete both have some similarity between them.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

So, the example of the life of this world,

00:01:17 --> 00:01:27

tell them explain to them through this through what is mentioned in this ayah so that they can understand the reality of this world.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:41

And what is that example come out in like water, which water under now who we sent it down from where Marina sama II from the sky, in other words, like rain that falls down from the sky,

00:01:42 --> 00:02:38

and when rain falls down from the sky, what happens as a result of that fall Teletubby then it got mixed with it, what God mixed with it. Now back to early the plants the vegetation of the Earth, if TelaDoc from the roof address ha Lam go and hunt is still out is when two or more things, when two or more you can say components are mixed together, they are joined together, blended together. We have learned during the intro the Toba hello to where I'm going on Salah Han What are her say here so halacha is to join to mix together two or more different things. So, if delta it was mixed, it got mingled, what God mingled then a battle of the vegetation of the earth be with it. Now, this

00:02:38 --> 00:03:16

word be he has been understood in two ways first of all be meaning with it. So, the plants that are on the earth, they get mixed with the water. In other words, they absorb the water, they take the water in and as a result of that, what happens the plants the vegetation, it gets nourished, and it also flourishes it becomes lush and green, you will notice that even if you give water to your plants yourself, it will not have the same effect as that which rain has

00:03:17 --> 00:04:06

when rain falls down you have seen around you recently that how the color has changed it has become more lush it has become more bright more lively. So, if thelotter begin a battle or they absorb the water becoming more lush becoming more green and secondly is telethon be he has been understood as because of it. So, because of the water the plants of the Earth they get mixed with one another they get mingled with one another. In other words, because of the water coming down from the sky, the plants they grow they become dense, they become so thick that the branches they get intertwined with one another the blades of grass even they are mixed with one another the twigs the trees, if you go

00:04:06 --> 00:04:55

to a forest, if you go into your backyard, all of the plants are mixed with one another which is why sometimes you cannot even trace back the root of the plant where it is growing out from. So for a lot of beginner Battlelog Firstly, it becomes lush and secondly it becomes thick, it becomes dense, but then what happens? Does it stay like that forever? Does it stay like that for the entire year? No, only for a few months. And then what happens? Fall comes again for us for her and then it becomes her Shimon dry stubble broken pieces. Her she was from the roof that was her she mean and Husham is basically to smash something to smash something to tiny pieces

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

and in particular it is to smash something that is dry

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

Just imagine if you have a dry piece of bread, and you put it in the food processor, and you hit balls, what's going to happen? It's going to crumble, it's going to turn into

00:05:11 --> 00:05:12

tiny, tiny pieces.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:33

Similarly, if you take a dry leaf and you step on it, you put your foot on it, what's going to happen? It's going to break into pieces, it's going to crumble, it's going to disintegrate. So Hasheem is the crumbled particles, the broken pieces of something that is dry,

00:05:34 --> 00:05:57

of something that has become dry. So for us, Bahasa Shimon, all of these green and lovely and lush plants, what happens to them, they become dry stubble, they turn into broken crumbled particles that have absolutely no weight, they have lost their color, they have lost their beauty, they are into broken up bits now.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:39

And these broken bits, what happens to them through who the who, the winds, they spread, they scatter them abroad, they pick up these dry leaves, they blow them off the trees, and they blow them around everywhere. And as a result of that, they end up breaking every time they're hit against something, you know, sometimes when it's extremely windy, especially when fall comes, you see all of these leaves flying around. And each time they are blown, they hit against something, they break down further, they break down further the through who they are who the drew from the route address, then raw Well, that would involve one is to scatter.

00:06:40 --> 00:07:29

So the winds, they pick them up, they blow them and they crumble them. They turn them into smaller and tinier pieces. What can Allah Who And Allah is Ever Allah Coonley che in upon everything, he is Mahkota de la, he is one who is capable. He is one who is all prevailing. He is the one who is all powerful. When he decides that faults should come, no one can resist that. When he decides that a plant should shed its leaves and the leaves should be picked up by the wind and blown everywhere and broken into tiny pieces. No one can stop that. Because what can Allah who are allowed coolly che in Muqdadiyah?

00:07:30 --> 00:07:36

Look, there is one who has acted and acted out is absolute authority,

00:07:37 --> 00:07:45

ability, perfect ability, supreme authority that none can resist, none can avoid. None can question

00:07:46 --> 00:08:28

what can Allah Who are the Cooley che in that era, he is capable of putting an end to what exists and he is capable of initiating what has come to an end. And between putting an end to something that exists and initiating something that has become non existent is only his Kalama gone. He just says gone. And that's it fall comes and the scene changes. He says gone and the water comes down and the entire earth becomes green and lush. He just has to say Khan and it happens what can Allahu Allah Khalifa in Madeira. So in this ayah we are told about the reality of the life of this world.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:35

And what is that reality? That nothing is within the ability of people.

00:08:36 --> 00:08:43

People have no control over their lives, who has complete control. Allah subhanaw

00:08:45 --> 00:09:04

duniya comes to a person, the life of this world, health, wealth, family, friends, education, career. All of these things they come to a person with all their splendor, with all their beauty with all their attraction. And while a person has them he thinks that they will never end.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:31

If he has youth. He thinks he will never suffer from old age. If he has children. He thinks they will never leave. If he has parents. He thinks he will never have to leave them. If he has a good job. He thinks he will never have to leave it. If he has a good house. He thinks he will never have to leave that house. If he has money. He thinks he will never depart from his money or his money will never departed.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:37

This is what he thinks when he has it. He thinks he will have it forever.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:47

But sooner or later what happens either what he has comes to an end or he comes to an end

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

because his good skin his youthful skin will begin to age. His children that are very small infants toddlers, they will become

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

An older, who have been living in his house one day, they will move out. The parents will make a scene from the very beginning. One day, he will bury them.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:24

The money that he has the house that he has the car that he has, one day he will see that it has no value, that it doesn't carry any weight at all. And he sees it going away from him.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:47

Man has no control over his life, over his circumstances, over his affairs at all. He cannot stop his body from aging. He cannot stop his health from deteriorating. He cannot have his children, he cannot stop them from moving out. He cannot stop his parents from dying. All authority is with who?

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

Allah subhana

00:10:50 --> 00:10:55

wa can Allah Who are the Galicia in Makkah. So what's the lesson in this for us?

00:10:56 --> 00:11:16

That everything in this dunya is temporary. Nothing is eternal. Everything is temporary, whether it's in the form of people, or it's in the form of wealth, or it's the form of knowledge or some authority, everything is temporary, nothing at all is permanent.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:26

And who has authority over it? Allah sprinter when Allah makes a decision, no one can resist it, no one can avoid it.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:53

And a person who believes in this who understands this, he will remain firm upon his EMA he will not lose his faith no matter what he's going through. If he has a lot of money, he will not lose his faith. If he loses something again, he will not lose his faith. If he goes through difficult times, he will not lose his faith, he will stay firm upon it. And a person who does not get this message, he will have a little bit of wealth, and he will think that nothing of it will depart.

00:11:54 --> 00:12:08

Now we see that this reality of the life of this world is shown to us through this example, many many times in the Quran. Similar examples are mentioned repeatedly in the Quran. So that we do not get deceived by this dunya

00:12:10 --> 00:12:38

we do not cling to it, we do not hold on to it. We do not try our utmost to just preserve this dunya but still what is amazing is that we are deceived. We are holding on to it. We are clinging to it with all of its sorrows and griefs and its pleasures and its comforts but the fact is that the comfort and the pleasure of this life is less. It is little it is temporary.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:56

We learned in a little hadith is number 20 Allah subhanaw taala says ear Alemu unnormal hair to dunya Larry been well the one was in a tone. Waterfowl hold on Vayner comb, water Catherine Phil, I'm worthy will Allah

00:12:57 --> 00:13:52

know that the life of this world is nothing but amusement and diversion, and adornment and boasting to one another, and competition in increase of wealth and children. Gamma 30 lays in our adorable cofell on a bow to who some Maya Haeju fellow who was for one night like the example of a rain whose resulting plant growth pleases the tillers but then it dries and you see it turned yellow. So May a conical farmer then it becomes scattered debris within Filati or there been shed Eden, Womack Farah to Manila and in the Hereafter is severe punishment or it is forgiveness from Allah. What Edwin and approval one will hire to dunya Illa Meterological. And what is the worldly life except the

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53

enjoyment of delusion?

00:13:54 --> 00:14:15

So this dunya it does not last. It is just a test. Everything comes to an end. Every day, you move on, you leave something behind. Everyday, you see something decline. You see someone pass away. Every day you feel that you're losing someone, you're losing something

00:14:16 --> 00:14:24

because this dunya this has its reality. Nothing is permanent. It's temporary, it goes away. It leaves you or you leave it

00:14:25 --> 00:14:53

and malleable balloon the wealth and children. What are they Xena at a higher altitude duniya they are just the adornment of this worldly life. Mal wealth no matter what kind of wealth it is, whether it is money or it is servants or it is some assets, clothes, houses, furniture, any kind of wealth. And Alba noon children

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

notice the word balloon has been used and balloon is primarily used for who sons

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

because people are more proud of having sons generally you will see across various cultures. This is the reality of people. They prefer having sons over daughters.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:29

And mainly people are proud about their sons. So oh man Well, balloon wealth and sons, what are they? Xena tell HYAH duniya. They're just the Xena of this life. They're not Xena of the archaea. They are Xena only in dystonia,

00:15:30 --> 00:16:15

through wealth and through children, a person adorns himself in this life, how? Like for example, if a person has money, what will he do? He will wear certain type of clothes, he will decorate his house, he will drive a particular car, he will use a particular pen, he will eat at certain places certain foods, which all show the wealth that he has, the money that he has. And through all of these things, what is he doing, beautifying himself adorning himself and children are also what a means of beauty. Which is why generally, what is the goal that people have in their lives, I have to study, I have to go to school, so that I can have a career so that I can make money. And I can have

00:16:15 --> 00:16:22

a family, do things people aim for? Why? Because this is what brings beauty to your life.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:34

If you have one and not the other, or if you have neither, then it does not make you beautiful in the sight of people. This is what brings beauty to people in Estonia.

00:16:36 --> 00:17:12

Generally, people boast about their children as well. For example, if they have a little child who begins to speak, they will tell everybody, this is what my child says. Just imagine if a person has two or three little children dressed very nicely, well behaved, how proud of person would be often he would love to show them in front of other people. And if a person has children who are going to med school, again, he is so proud about them, he will tell everybody, this is only Xena of this life, Xena to hire the dunya. They are not Xena, for the ACA. And this is something that we should understand

00:17:13 --> 00:17:23

that wealth and children are only a benefit to a person were in this dunya not in the asset unless a person invests them for the ACA

00:17:24 --> 00:17:30

that he spends as well. And he trains his children so that he can benefit from them in the hereafter.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:57

inscrutable i 37 We learn when I'm welcome. Wala Hola, dokkan bility to caribou Camarena, Zilpha in lamb and Armineh we're amela slowly, it is not your wealth or your children that brings you nearer to us in position, but it is by being one who has believed and unrighteousness then such a person his wealth and children, they will help him in the hereafter as well.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:10

Into the Sharada 88 and 89 We learn yo Malaya and Pharaoh maroon while ever known 11 at Allah be convinced Celine The Day when they will not benefit anyone wealth or children.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:17

No matter how much money you have, how much billions trillions, it will not help.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:37

Similarly, no matter how successful children a person may have, no matter how beautiful and intelligent and smart they may be. They will not help unless and until they're righteous in lemon at Allaha. Because when Sally only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart

00:18:38 --> 00:18:55

and this is the reason why we have been warned in the Quran. That Yeah, are you Alladhina amanu Latin Hey, come on welcome wala Allah to command Dequindre. So Tomonaga con is number nine that all believers, your wealth, and your children should not divert you from the Dhikr of Allah.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:05

Because many times the person gets busy in just beautifying himself, adorning himself with his wealth, and with his children,

00:19:06 --> 00:19:17

all of his time, all of his effort is focused on what getting more money, using more money, enjoying more money, or looking after the children.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:35

But remember, that they are only limited to this dunya therefore they should not distract you from the vicar of Allah. Because in the Hereafter your wealth and children will not help you unless you have prepared them for the

00:19:37 --> 00:19:41

lateral hey come on welcome Wallah hola to come on decree law.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:50

So wealth and children they're only Xena of this life. They only benefit a person in this dunya so what is it that will last?

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

We learned in the previous example of life that everything ends, children. Sometimes they die in your life.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:11

Sometimes they move away from you, they move on with their lives. They leave you, wealth, even it leaves you. You see your favorite thing, breaking one day.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:28

I remember once this lady, she showed me a dish. And she said, I got this on my wedding shower about 30 Some years ago. And it was a lovely dish. And as you stood up, it fell out of her hands and it broke right there.

00:20:29 --> 00:21:12

It broke right there. And I was thinking that no matter how valuable something is to you of dystonia, ultimately, it's something of dystonia. And eventually, it will finish it will finish, no matter how precious it is to you, no matter how special it is to you, it is going to finish. So what is it that continues? What is it that goes with you? What is it that will remain? If children will go? Well, it will go, what is it that will remain then? Well back here, and the enduring ones, and ones that endure or what have certainly heard the good deeds,

00:21:13 --> 00:21:58

while back to soil health, the good deeds that endure, what is going to last is what asylee had, it's the good deeds that you do now. They're going to last they're going to continue with you to the author and benefit you over there. Your wealth will not go with you to the grave. Your money will not help you on the Day of Judgment, your wallet will not come to you on the Day of Judgment. No, you will be empty handed. The only thing that will be with you is what a Salah had al Bathia to a solid, what will remain are the good deeds, good deeds will remain. And what does a solid health refer to what are these good deeds, it includes every kind of good deed,

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

whether in word or inaction,

00:22:03 --> 00:22:07

whether it is a statement, or it is an armor,

00:22:08 --> 00:22:18

including salah, including the including a marble marble, including the here and in Mancha, including the Dhikr of Allah

00:22:19 --> 00:22:28

are smiling and are fun to learn who he was questioned, which are the good righteous deeds that last what are the valkia to slowly

00:22:29 --> 00:22:47

and he replied that they are La ilaha illa, Allah Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah hu Akbar and La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah Hill, or the Uruli. This has value at the slider. This is what's going to last.

00:22:48 --> 00:23:23

If you spend a lot of money on your backyard, you spend a lot of time landscaping, getting the perfect trees, getting the perfect arrangement, eventually what's going to happen, fall will come, it's gonna go, all the beauty is going to go it's going to be covered in snow, all that wind is going to blow and perhaps a tree will be uprooted. Perhaps the fence will fall destroying all of your plants. But if you say some earth god, and because of them, trees grow for you in Jannah, they are more lasting. They are back here to solid.

00:23:24 --> 00:23:32

What you plant in this dunya eventually, it's going to finish. But what you plant in the Alpha, it's going to remain it's going to last

00:23:33 --> 00:23:39

the wealth and children they're going to stay behind in this dunya what is going to go with you. It's the good deeds that will go.

00:23:40 --> 00:23:54

But if you look at it, what is it that distracts us from performing these good deeds from performing alberca to soil from seeing these simple Atka Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:07

Think about it after Salah a few times we have to say subhanallah that hamdulillah Allahu Akbar. But what is it that stops us from even doing that from even saying that it's either wealth, or its children.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:51

Let me just save these five minutes and instead go to the dishes quickly. Let me just go and fix this quickly do this quickly. Or let me just sit with my child. Talk to him laugh with him play with him. I'm not saying that's not important it is. But many times we do that at the cost of Albuquerque at the salejaw forgetting that everything else will stay and that the other side your head will go. If you look at it, that the hereafter it is certain. And the benefits of this dunya they're very doubtful. You spend so much time with someone trying to please them but you don't know if they will really be happy. He spent so much time getting some more money but you don't know if you'll really

00:24:51 --> 00:24:59

get it. You don't know if you will really be able to enjoy it. But still, how much of our time goes on that which is for sure.

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

And that which is doubtful

00:25:04 --> 00:25:15

while back here to Sally how to hire on or in the Rebecca wherever they are better in the sight of your Lord in terms of the web in terms of reward

00:25:16 --> 00:25:45

will hire on Amala and better in hope. Emma Mo is from the roof letters Hamza Niemela. And remember that Amal is such hope about which there is a possibility of its fulfillment, it's quite possible that it may be fulfilled, you hope that it will be fulfilled. So we'll hide on Amana, meaning, the valkia to Saudi had the good deeds, the enduring good deeds, they are better in the sight of Allah in terms of reward,

00:25:46 --> 00:26:14

Allah will reward a person for his valkia to Slendy will hide on Amala and this is worthy of being hope for this is something that a person should hope for what a person should hope for what a person should expect, is not only wealth and children, but what should he hope for reward in the Hereafter? And how can he hope for that by doing some bacteria to slowly

00:26:15 --> 00:26:20

if a person walks and desires duniya even if he gets it eventually what's going to happen?

00:26:21 --> 00:26:39

It's going to finish it's going to go away. It's going to decline. It's going to die. But if a person does back here too slowly had any hopes her ward then inshallah Allah has promised and that is much better. quite understandable because a weapon will heighten Amana

00:26:40 --> 00:27:04

if you look at it in times of difficulty and need a person who hopes that his wealth will aid him or person hopes that his children will aid him but in the Hereafter, what is it that will aid a person? Is it wealth and children? No, it's the balcony of the Sun. This is where a person should put his hope. This is what a person should be relying upon. Not wealth and children but rather good deeds.

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


00:27:10 --> 00:27:13

masala HYAH dunya.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:16


00:27:23 --> 00:27:29

de la Babina tune Lee for us Baja Shimon

00:27:32 --> 00:27:38

worked long on Nietzsche in Alta do

00:27:41 --> 00:27:43

Xena to hire

00:27:46 --> 00:27:47

too slowly.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51


00:27:57 --> 00:28:00

if you look at it, it's wealth and children that we can a person.

00:28:01 --> 00:28:09

We learned earlier that children they make a person buggy. And also they make him stingy. And they also make him a coward.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:15

And this is very true. But what does that give strength through a person to move on to continue

00:28:17 --> 00:28:45

to do about the other side he had its the righteous company was big enough soccer, Mara Ladino, you're the owner of the homebuilder that you will actually keep yourself in the company of such people because they will move you forward, they will not let you stay at home, they will not let you do nothing. So hold yourself with these people cling to them. Because no matter how much time you spend with your children, no matter how much time you spend with your wealth, eventually it's going to go.

00:28:47 --> 00:29:15

I remember somebody once mentioned that they only like to spend their time with their children, and nothing else. They don't like to clean, they don't like to cook, they don't like to go out. They don't like to shop, they don't like to be with their friends. They just want to give their children 100% attention because their children are the highest priority. And I thought to myself anyway, that's very good, that you're giving your children all the attention. But eventually what's going to happen?

00:29:16 --> 00:29:21

Their children are going to move on and they will remain.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:45

They will stay behind. And because their children, they have sacrificed everything. And when their children have gone they're going to be left sad and depressed. So many times that happens with people, so many women I've seen in my own life, who spend all their time only with their children and children. As soon as they start going to school. The mothers are sitting at home, they're like, What do I do? They're sad, they're depressed. They don't know what to do.

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

So laterally come and welcome Walla Walla to come on Zillow at whatever stage whether they're infants, or their toddlers, or they're going to school or they're going to university or they're married at any stage. Don't let

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

them distract you from the vicar of Allah.
