HEPA until So, little cullinane What did he do? He went on a particular way, or he used his resources until either Bella when he reached Mareeba Shamcey the setting place of the Sun Maghrib is the place or the time when the sun sets are where the sun sets.

00:00:22 --> 00:01:05

So he reached motivations. What are the her he found it meaning he found the sun. He saw the sun devil Robu that it was setting fee in iron in a spring. That is Hermia that was dark. In its color, muddy. How many is from the roof that was ha Meem Hamza. We did the word hammer in earlier hammer. It was noon, that Adam Ernestina was created from hammer it was noon. And remember that hammer is mud that is extremely wet. And basically it's when water stands at a particular place, it's not absorbed, it does not flow from there. Eventually what happens it becomes extremely muddy.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:14

So I in in Hermia a spring that was very dark in its color. It had a lot of loose wet mud in it.

00:01:16 --> 00:01:33

And secondly, they said that the rain and how it's described as heavier, because at the time, as the sun was setting and darkness was coming in, the color of that spring looked extremely dark. It seemed as though it was muddy.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:42

You understand? As the darkness was coming in, with the fall of darkness, the color of the water, it appeared to be extremely dark.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:58

And Iranian is used for a spring but such a spring from which the water comes out. But it gets collected. Remember the word Yun Bora Bora is when water flows. But I mean is when water flows out of the spring but it gets collected.

00:02:00 --> 00:02:14

So we see that the Canadian he traveled to a particular place. And this place was Mercury mushrooms it was where the sun was setting. And he saw the sun setting in a dark murky spring.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:29

Now remember that in the Quran, many things are mentioned according to how a person would view them. We know that obviously the sun does not go into the water, but it appears to a person as though the sun is going into the water.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

Now, what is this place mockery Bishop's

00:02:34 --> 00:02:42

Some have said that it is a place that is extremely distant, a place of extreme west

00:02:43 --> 00:02:49

and beyond this spring beyond the water he did not find anything.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:54

So, it was like the end of the land, where the sun was setting

00:02:55 --> 00:03:00

and beyond this water, there was nothing else that he could see what is true,

00:03:01 --> 00:03:09

he reached a limit, you understand, I mean all the land to his West, he had conquered it.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:17

And beyond this water there was no other land in front of him. So basically, he had conquered all of the land to his left.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

So basically all of the Western lens.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:27

Secondly, it is also said that either Bella or Margarita Shamsi, it refers to the time of sunset because remember Maghrib is

00:03:29 --> 00:03:39

so until he reached the time of sunset, and he found that the sun was setting in a dark, murky spring.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:52

Well, what are the and he found? Bring the her near it. Meaning right by the spring, right by the spool of water, he found a woman of people

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

and this indicates that he conquered those people.

00:03:57 --> 00:04:14

So he conquered those people as well. He conquered that land as well. Now remember that Zylka naygn had been given authority by Allah's Pantheon McCann nella who fell off. So Allah we said, Allah subhanaw taala said to the Canadian that Yeah, they'll coordinate or they'll coordinate? Why is it Val carne?

00:04:15 --> 00:04:35

It's monada. Okay, and it's becoming monsoon because of the Yeah, so Yeah, they'll call name or the local name, ima either, and to our dibba that you punish what ima or under the cleaner that you take fee him concerning them person away of goodness.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:45

Though, Conan was given a choice. Either you can punish these people, or you can treat them with kindness.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:49

He was given such authority as well.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

Now, does it mean that he would punish the people unjustly? No, he wouldn't do that. Because remember that little Kinane was adjusting. He was

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

A very intellectual person, a very wise person, and he did not misuse his authority. So when he was given this freedom when he was given this choice that either you can punish them or you can treat them in a good way. This is because Allah subhanaw taala knew that do not inane would make a good decision, a correct decision. This is just as when the Prophet salallahu Salam conquered Makkah, did not have the authority to take revenge from every single person. Did he not? He did. But what did he say? Let the three burly Coolio go you there's no retribution upon you today. You have it Allahu Allah, may Allah forgive you.

00:05:41 --> 00:06:10

So similarly they'll contain was also given this authority. But what is tokenized? Say? Allah, He said, I'm Mammon Salama, as for the one who is unjust. And remember, that Sheikh is the greatest injustice. So the one who does LOL, meaning he does not believe in the Oneness of Allah, he commits Schick for sofa, then soon, no idea who we will punish that person we will punish him who the person was unjust.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:22

But then somebody you're a dude, then he will be returned that very person in Arabi to his Lord, for Your The Boo, then he will punish him either been nohcra a terrible punishment.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:36

Remember that as human beings, as human beings, as those who impose law, people have the authority to punish only to a certain extent

00:06:37 --> 00:06:48

or only do a certain limit, true justice or full accountability, full recompense Oh gives that Allah soprano.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:56

Therefore a person must never exceed what Allah has given as punishment in the dunya.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:10

Like, for example, if Allah has said that a particular person who has committed a crime must be punished in a certain way, then we are no one to exceed that punishment saying that, Oh, what he did was extremely wrong.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:16

Like for example, if a person has committed theft, What's the punishment, his hand should be cut?

00:07:17 --> 00:07:23

Now person cannot say no, but he committed theft and this is so wrong, he should be killed. No, we cannot exceed the punishment.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:29

Because our job is to just give the punishment that Allah has legislated in the dunya.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:43

And who will give the exact retribution, Allah subhanaw taala for you are the people who are the Nuka he will give the punishment in the hereafter. That is terrible. That is extremely grid

00:07:44 --> 00:07:47

and look over here gives meaning of extremely severe punishment.

00:07:49 --> 00:07:52

So what do we learn in this idea about the Justice off is

00:07:54 --> 00:08:02

that he says that yes, for the wrongdoer, we will punish him but eventually who will give him the punishment that he deserves? Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:03 --> 00:08:17

Well, I'm gonna ask for money I'm gonna the one who believes what AMITA Saleh and any altar does righteous action further who then for him Jezza is a recommends that is an Hausner. That is excellent. And what is that desert? Jenna,

00:08:18 --> 00:08:38

meaning in the Hereafter, such a believing and righteous person will get paradise and how are we going to deal with this person in the dunya wasn't a guru and soon we will say Allahu to him in a marina concerning our affair. usara is meaning with regards to our command to this person. We will give him an easy command.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:43

We will deal with him gently. We will deal with him with ease.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:47

What do we see over here? Two types of people are mentioned.

00:08:49 --> 00:09:06

Though Kinane was given the authority he could punish, or he could deal with goodness with all the people. What was the justice of so corny? That the one who is guilty I will punish him, but Allah will give him punishment were in the Hereafter.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:15

And as for the one who is good, the one who is righteous, He will have Jannah in the hereafter. But now we will deal with him in an easy way.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:26

Do you notice something, the order in which he mentioned the recompense that is going to be given to each of these two individuals in the dunya and also in the occur

00:09:28 --> 00:09:32

for the zali. What does he mention first? Are they above dunya?

00:09:33 --> 00:09:36

And then he mentioned that are they above a hero?

00:09:37 --> 00:09:43

For the believer, what does he mentioned first, the reward of the Hereafter.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

And then he mentions the reward in the dunya.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:48


00:09:49 --> 00:09:54

Because the reward of the Hereafter is greater than the reward of dunya

00:09:55 --> 00:09:56

isn't it?

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

And the objective of a believer the purpose

00:10:00 --> 00:10:06

says what? To attain the reward of the Hereafter. That's his goal. That's his purpose. That's his mission.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:20

But we see that the xylem what does he fear more? Does he fear the punishment of this dunya more? Or does he fear the punishment of the Hereafter more the punishment of the duniya more that is why it is mentioned first.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:25

So, do you see the order in which the reward and punishment are mentioned? There is a wisdom behind

00:10:27 --> 00:10:35

some at Barcia. Then, what is Zuko Naidu he continued in his conquests, he followed another.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:58

Notice over here, he doesn't stop. He says, Oh, I've reached the extreme west and I have conquered all of the western regions, all of the western lands and everything is in my control, I have so much authority that I can punish and I can forgive, I can treat well, and I can hold accountable I can do whatever I wish. He does not stop over there. What does he do? He continues in his work.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:27

Many times what happens if a person has accomplished a particular task he thinks he has done so much and he doesn't need to do any more? Isn't it? I have studied the Quran once I have done the my diploma. That's it. What more could you do? This is the maximum that you can do. But we see that for a person whose goal is the ACA, whose goal is Janna, he never stops working. He continues, he continues with his mission.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:35

And this is why Allah gives them the ability to do one thing after the other, to achieve one thing after the other.

00:11:36 --> 00:12:12

We see the scholars of the past, they wrote so many books. For example, if you look at even cathedra, here autopsy right, then he also wrote Obadiah when they hire, from the beginning to the end, the history of human beings. He has written about the stories of the prophets, he's written so much. And generally we think that okay, only this is my field, I can only do this work. This is why let me focus all of my efforts and energies into this one way. But the fact is that when Allah has given you the ability to accomplish that, move on to something else, don't just sit there

00:12:13 --> 00:12:22

and who can do this. A person who knows that I have only been able to accomplish this, by the mercy of Allah, He will continue

00:12:23 --> 00:12:47

and the person who wants the agile in the hereafter he will continue he will never stop he will never take rest. We see that Musen further also fun Paula coffin Tanaka kept on going. We see that Zuko nine also at virus Ababa. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after his death. What did the Sahaba do? The disdain Medina? No, they left Medina, they traveled to far off places to spread the message of Islam.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:58

And we see that the beer even Ahmed, when the Muslims, they entered Persia, they were asked by the people that Why have you come here? Why have you come here?

00:12:59 --> 00:13:07

And he replied, that we have come to liberate men from the slavery of man and instead make them the slaves of Allah.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:16

This is what our mission is. And if this is the mission of a person, then he can ever say, I have accomplished my mission.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:40

If a person's goal is Quran, in every heart in every hand, and he will never stop, he will not do that. Okay, I have it in my heart in my hand. So hamdulillah know, his goal is that I should take it to every heart every hand and he will not stop until his last breath. until his last moment. He will continue going for at Barossa.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:58

And remember that learning gaining knowledge is a lifelong process. Serving the deen is a lifelong process. A person can ever say okay, now I have done and now I can retire. A believer never retires until the Angel of Death comes to him.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:06

We see that I'm not even humble. Even at his deathbed. He was asking questions, trying to learn more about the D.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:35

So what do we see that a person whose goal is the akhira he never stops his work he'd ever thinks Okay, now it's the weekend of course is over. Now the holidays have begun. So let me start my recitation of the Quran know, it's an ongoing process. It's a lifelong process. It never comes to an end, some at Barcia. Then he followed away, he took another mission, he undertook another mission, one expedition after the other

00:14:36 --> 00:14:40

and ultimately see over here again, some advice about that he continued to use his resources.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:59

He didn't say okay, I've done too much. Now let me live a very simple life. Let me live like a hermit. No. Because remember that if anything benefits you. If anything creates ease for you, you should be greedy for it. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said it has an MA in folk be greedy for that which benefits

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

You say if anything creates ease, if anything enables you to do your work. And Allah has given you the ability to buy it, to afford it, then get it and make use of it. Make your life more productive, more simple, so that you can achieve more.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:37

Unfortunately, we think that if we're very pious, if we're very righteous, then we should not have a phone, we should have a phone that is very old, out of simplicity, it should not be the latest model. Whereas the fact is that if a person has the latest model, for example, it will enable him to do much more work on his phone, it will make you more productive.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:52

I remember that. My mother says that, when the washing machine first came out, you were like, oh, there was a time when it first came out? Yes. When it first came out. My grandfather was one of the first persons to go in buy it.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:54

Why? Why do you think so?

00:15:55 --> 00:15:58

Because it saves time. For who?

00:15:59 --> 00:16:00

For my grandmother.

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

And my grandmother, she mentioned things such as she would be working in the kitchen, or she'd be doing something and her father in law would come and say this, leave this and go read Quran and go read something and do something better. So we see that if anything speeds up your work, use it if Allah has given you the ability,

00:16:17 --> 00:16:29

if you think that using the dishwasher is going to save your time, yes, it may cost you more money, perhaps but it's going to save your time, which is going to enable you to do something more, then give preference to your time than to your money.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:32

Especially when Allah has given you

00:16:33 --> 00:16:49

sometimes you see that people will spend so much time looking for the best deal. That Okay, where's the sale here or there? Where is it cheaper to do dollars up over here? Let me go here is $2 more important to you than two hours? Think about it.

00:16:50 --> 00:17:02

I remember once there was a scholar who was visiting Canada, it was winter that time and somebody had taken him shopping to buy a winter jacket. So he went to the store and the first record he found he just bought it right there and then

00:17:03 --> 00:17:38

he didn't do any you know, shopping around the stores seeing Okay, where's the better deal nothing like that. And this person who took him he's like, you know, wait, let's go to another store new, see what's better, and then you can buy that he said, No, my time is much more precious to me. So if we become like that, that we use the means that Allah has given us to save our time so that we can be more productive than this is better for us. And if we spend our time saving money $1 Here $1 there. One thing here one thing there, how much can we save eventually, whatever you will save whatever you will buy no matter how good it is, eventually we'll leave it isn't it so

00:17:39 --> 00:17:48

I'll manual banana, Xena to hire to dunya Wolbachia to asylee hat. So spend your time during the solid hat, not acquiring the Mailand balloon,

00:17:50 --> 00:18:07

Hatter until either bellava Mattila or Shamcey until when he reached the rising place of the sun, what is this the east. So before he reached a place of extreme west, now he reaches a place of extreme East

00:18:09 --> 00:18:14

what are the her he found it that it is rising Allah Coleman upon a people.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:27

So he saw the sun rising upon people. And these people love Nadal, we did not make love home for them for those people mean Dooney her against it? Against what?

00:18:28 --> 00:18:32

Against the sun, sit draw any shield.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

The word dune gives many meanings.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:38

Over here it gives the meaning of against.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:45

So these people did not have against the sun, any shelter, any shield, what is it?

00:18:46 --> 00:18:49

Something that covers something that heights it becomes a barrier.

00:18:50 --> 00:18:54

So what does it mean by this, they had no shelter against the sun.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:03

This has been understood in a number of ways. First of all, that these people had nothing that they could take

00:19:04 --> 00:19:08

as a shelter against the heat and the light of the sun.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:25

Think about it. When there is sun, what do you do in order to be saved from it's light and heat? What will you do, you will go inside a building. If you're outside you will perhaps stand under a tree. You will stand by something whose shade is protecting you from the light of the sun.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:48

But these people had nothing so it is that there was no building. There was no mountain, there was no tree. There was nothing at all that could cover them from the sun. They were constantly under the sun. So perhaps these people were extremely poor, extremely backward in the sense that they were not developed at all.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:53

Similarly, some have said that these people had no clothes.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:56

They had no clothes.

00:19:57 --> 00:19:58

What does it show?

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


00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

Did you know that recently there were these tribes that were discovered in South America,

00:20:07 --> 00:20:09

in New Zealand, BBC or National Geographic.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:14

And you should see how these people are basically wearing nothing.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:27

And savage tribes, right? Savage tribes. So Allah, Allah, what the reality of these people was, they had no building, they had no structure, no tree, and they didn't even have any clouds to protect them from the sun

00:20:28 --> 00:20:37

alone, what kind of people they were. So you can imagine how far how deep they will come, they must have traveled that he discovered he came across such people as well.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:54

Some have said that what this means is that the sun was constantly on their heads. Once it rose, it was constantly above them lemenager alone when duniya Citra, the sun would not set

00:20:55 --> 00:21:00

the understand the sun would not set on these people or that what said it would set for a very little time.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:13

And there are places upon this dunya where the sun sets for only a few hours, or sometimes a few moments. And sometimes it doesn't set at all for several months.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:18

So perhaps these people were located in one of these places.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:31

Because Alika likewise, what could happen, and we had encompassed B melody, with all that he had, who had Luca nine had Heilbronn in knowledge

00:21:32 --> 00:21:49

Gallica meaning the matter of the local nine was such what that he reached the West and the East he conquered the western lands and also the Eastern lands. He went to the extreme west and he also went to the extreme east.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:53

This is how it was in reality.

00:21:54 --> 00:22:07

What color hat on and you think this is a big deal? What are the health on and Allah had fully encompassed be malady of whatever the draconian had Cobra and in knowledge, Cobra is like Hubble.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:21

So everything that will contain had seen everything that he had come across everything that he had come to know, everything that he had discovered in his travels in his conquests. Allah knew about that already.

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

It when people discover something new, they think, Wow, this is a big deal. We're so intelligent. We're so capable. We have discovered this today. We discovered that yesterday. But what does Allah say?

00:22:33 --> 00:22:39

Allah knew about that already. Allah knows about that already. We're fo aqua, Lydia elmen. Eileen.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:47

And ultimately, look at it. Zuko, nine went to so many places, the West and the East, extreme west extreme East.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:52

And who has complete knowledge about his activities?

00:22:53 --> 00:23:01

Allah subhanaw taala where exactly he went what exactly he did. Allah knows about every single information.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:12

It may be hidden from the rest of the world. It may be hidden from the people, but it's not hidden from Allah. So no matter what a person achieves, no matter what a person acquires. What should you remember

00:23:14 --> 00:23:49

that my Lord knows more. And my lord still knows about me because many times people become so arrogant about their knowledge, that they begin to say, even God does not know even God cannot destroy this. They are so arrogant to say such statements. But the fact is that Allah knows about everything. He knew about every activity of the country, every conquest, every step that he undertook, every place that he went to every people that he discovered Allah knew about that already, because we're focused on the the ailment, or name.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:55

And then they'll contain obviously, he continued, he went on he didn't stop over there.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:04

And he went to another place where he came across a certain people and he protected them from who

00:24:05 --> 00:24:06

yet Julian might huge

00:24:08 --> 00:24:11

listen to the recitation of all of these ideas and then we'll continue

00:24:13 --> 00:24:13

Oh, yes.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:17
