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

Yeah Are you heard Russolo all messengers Kulu minute by you Betty White, mellow saleha in need the matter Amma Luna Arlene, Allah subhanaw taala addresses all of the prophets, that all messengers, each of those things which are good, and do that which is righteous. Indeed I am aware knowing of whatever that you do.

00:00:25 --> 00:01:12

The prophets are instructed that you must eat that which is good and you must do that which is good. And in this is a lesson for us as well that we must eat to live and we must live to work righteousness, with the realisation that Allah is watching everything that we are doing, what in the heavy OMA to Come on Martin Wahida. And indeed this nation, this religion because the word OMA is also used for religion. So this religion, this nation of yours is one nation having one religion, and who is your God? One God, we're an Arab Bukom for Taccone so fear me meaning fear Allah. So all of the prophets brought the same message. All of the prophets invited to the worship of Allah

00:01:12 --> 00:01:58

subhanaw taala alone. But what happened Fatah Cocteau, Umrah, home Boehner home zooboo Ra, but the followers of the prophets what happened? They divided their religion amongst them into several groups into sects and Kulu has been Bimala de infatti Hoon. Each group was rejoicing is rejoicing with whatever portion of religion he is holding on to you see the foundation the basis of religion is what belief in Allah subhanaw taala the core of Allah Eman Billa is the foundation it is the basis of the structure of religion if Eman biller is there, correct Eman and Allah is there then what will happen the religion will be together in the sense that a person will hold on to the entire

00:01:58 --> 00:02:41

religion, he will give importance to the entire religion. But when the belief in Allah is not correct, when the foundation is not correct, and what will happen, the structure will collapse. And what will happen then, a person will just hold on to bits and pieces of their religion, just portions of religion that will suit him that make him happy. And this is what has happened over time that as people have lost their faith and Allah as people have lost their true fear of Allah subhanaw taala what has happened they have just selected bits and portions of religion that have modified their religion to suit their own desires. Allah says further homefield on * him had the hain.

00:02:42 --> 00:03:27

So leave them in their confusion for a time meaning there is no point trying to convince these people argue with them. Because when a person is stubborn upon something he's following his desire than logic doesn't make sense to him than proof and evidence it doesn't matter. Because think about it. If a person is following the religion if a person has true faith in Allah, then he will give importance to the whole religion correct? If something is presented in that as part of the deen will he accept it? Yes, he will. But if he is holding on to religion, parts of religion, just to follow his own desires, alright, then in reality what is he doing following religion or following desire

00:03:28 --> 00:03:53

following desire so if something suits his desire he will adopt it but as soon as there's something that contradicts the desire that goes against it, will he adoptive Noah he will leave it so for the home field one brought to him leave them in their confusion in their misguidance in their air had their hand for a time, right for a time. You know, for example, if a person is sleeping, and you try to wake them up, and they don't wake up what do you do then?

00:03:55 --> 00:04:29

Leave them but do you leave them forever? For some time, right? You go away for like five minutes you go away for 10 minutes you go away for half an hour but then you come back right so had that hain, give them time in this is good for you. Right? And also good for them? How is it good for you? Because you won't get upset and angry and frustrated? You won't give up? And how is it good for them. They also need some space, they also need some time they need time to wake up. So just like that a person needs time to accept guidance.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

You know, for instance, we learn about the importance of performing Salah properly with assure. All right, and then we see somebody who's not performing Salah with kosher and we got really upset and angry. Do you realize what we were praying to? Do you realize where you're standing before? Is this the time to pray? Is this how you pray? Do some of that before your prayer in your prayer after your prayer, but there is no point getting angry. No point getting angry. Didn't it take us time to realize the importance of Salah didn't it take time? It did

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

it so others also need time. All right, so for that won't be longer our team had to Hain is a bona Anna Manomet Doom became a melee weapon. Now a person is doing something wrong, he is upon falsehood, but yet he's living a happy life everything is working out for him. Allah says, Do they think that what we extend to them of wealth and children? Is it necessity or let them feel hierarchy? Is it because we are hastening for them good things? Meaning, do they think that this is reward for the sense that they're committing? No way. Because if a person is having a great time in this life, that does not mean Allah subhanaw taala is happy with him. Your financial position in

00:05:43 --> 00:06:29

this life doesn't determine your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala it doesn't fit our own was very rich. Likewise, we see falloon was very rich, right? But did that mean that Allah subhanaw taala was very happy with them? No. We see the prophets Allah when he was alone. He lived through poverty in his childhood, and also later on what happened in cherub of Euclidean when the people of Makkah boycotted the tribe of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they basically the Banu Hashim, they imposed an exile upon themselves and they left Makkah. And they settled outside of Makkah, in a gorge in a ravine. And during that time, so much poverty, there was no food at all because they

00:06:29 --> 00:07:02

couldn't even buy and sell. You know, any person would come from outside, right with food supplies, the people of Makkah would go to them and they would say, we will give you double the money don't sell anything to brainwash the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said at one point, that how many days and nights went by on me and Bilal, Bill, I love the love, I knew that we had nothing, that a living being could eat. Nothing that a living being could eat. And all we could find was just something as small, so small that could fit in the armpit of blood.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:46

Meaning it was something so small, that you could just hide in your armpit. Can you imagine something so small, that's all we had to eat for days and days, the prophets Allah laws and went through so much poverty. So if a person is suffering from poverty and hardship, that doesn't necessarily mean that Allah is angry with him. And if a person is going through happiness and joy and luxury in this life, that doesn't mean that Allah is happy with him. This doesn't mean that what determines if Allah is happy with you or not your actions, your relationship with Allah, what you are doing in your lifetime, because the more opportunity a person has to do good, the more chance he

00:07:46 --> 00:08:29

has to draw closer to Allah that means Allah wants him to be closer to Him. Allah is happy with him. And when a person is deprived of doing good, then what does that mean? That he has done something wrong, that there is a distance now between him and his Lord. So I asked her Buena Onda Manomet, Doom became a melee weapon in new Seriola home Phil hieratic Bella Yash Arun rather they do not realize in the Levina home in Hachette Europe became Mushfiq cone. Indeed, those who are apprehensive from the fear of their Lord two words are mentioned here a fear, right Kusha and ashphalt what is a Shia fear that is based on knowledge and awareness that a person realizes the

00:08:29 --> 00:09:16

greatness of Allah subhanaw taala and because of that, he is afraid because of that he is fearful and most fic ish file is a combination of love and fear, respect all. So because they realize the greatness of their Lord, they are apprehensive. They are concerned. They are never negligent. Hassan buslee Rahim Allah He said that the believer combines airson With all meaning the believer when he's doing anything good, he does it to the best of his ability in the most excellent manner. And while he's doing that, he is afraid of Allah. He is afraid of Allah. Why is he afraid? Because

00:09:17 --> 00:09:50

why? Okay, because of the fear that it may not be accepted. Why else? Because of the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala. I mean, have you ever participated in a competition? speech competition, maybe or art competition? Has it ever happened? Okay, so when you did your artwork, your art project, whatever it was, Okay. How did you do it? You gave it your best. Right? You did it with your son. Were you afraid when you submitted your project? Were you afraid? What were you afraid of?

00:09:51 --> 00:10:00

What if it's not good enough? Right? What if it's not good enough? Because you were

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

realize when you see other people's artwork, and when you see the highest standard of the judges, right? That there's no way I'm gonna pass there's no way I'm gonna win. There's no way I'm gonna make it. When you see the highest standard, right? So, Allah subhanaw taala How great is he? No matter what we do, can we ever give Allah His hug? Can we? Can we ever do justice to what Allah deserves from us? Can we even get close to that lover? No matter how much we have accomplished, no matter how beautifully we have done something, no matter how perfectly we have done something, it's never good enough, right? This is why the prophets of Allah Islam said that none of us can get

00:10:48 --> 00:11:01

Jannah through just our deeds, because our deeds can never be 100% Perfect. It can only be from Allah's mercy. So what is it that we hope for, but Ya Allah, this is the best I could do.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:10

Right? This is the best I could do. It is your mercy that I want. It is your pleasure and approval that I want.

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

Just like Ibrahim or his son who is married or his son, when they constructed the Kaaba, they did their best. And then what did they say? Robina. Taco Bell, Mina, oh Allah accept from us. So this is a very important concept to understand. And it's very important that we understand it correctly. Because I know we live in eternal guilt. Right? And we think, Oh, no matter what I do, it's never good enough. So what's the point of even trying? Right? I'm a failure and everyday you feel like a loser. I can never be perfect. I can never be good enough. No, this is not how we should feel. Or we go to the other extreme, which is, yeah, I've done this and this and this. I think I'm good. I think

00:11:53 --> 00:12:12

I'll pass I think I'll survive. Alright, that's another extreme that is being too arrogant, has an adversity said the believer combines your son with all he does his best. Right? He does whatever is within his capacity given the situation that he has. And at the same time

00:12:13 --> 00:13:03

Mushfiq Cohn, in all that he or Allah, only you can grace my efforts with your son with acceptance only you can bestow Your favor, you can show your mercy, and you can honor my deeds by accepting them. They can never be perfect, but we have faith in your mercy. So in the Latina woman has yet to not be him. Mushfiq goon, well, Lavina, whom Biya to be him, you may know and those who believe in the signs of their Lord, will Lavina homebuilt be Himmler you should record and those who do not associate anything with their Lord, meaning whatever they do, they do it with sincerity. What Lavina you do nama atto. And those who gave whatever they give you, Dona etha ether ether is to give so for

00:13:03 --> 00:13:26

example, giving charity, right but over here doesn't just mean giving charity. It also implies performing an action. Right? Because whatever we're doing, we're giving it we're depositing it in our record of deeds, to be weighed on the day of judgment to be presented on the day of judgment so that we are given reward. So when Lavina you tuna mah toe? Look at the word mah toe?

00:13:27 --> 00:14:10

What does that mean? Anything and everything they do? They give the perform everything? What is the state of their heart walk all over home? What? Their hearts are trembling. They're not proud inside. They're still a little nervous inside. Why are they nervous inside that unknown? It could be him Raji Arun, that indeed they are going to return to their Lord. And when we return to Allah, our deeds are going to be presented. We are going to be questioned about our deeds. Has it ever happened with you? That you, you know, for example, you write a test.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:16

And then you give it and then when it is marked, and it is returned? You don't want to look at it.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:21

Why do you have that feeling that you don't want to look at it? Why?

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

What if you did good?

00:14:25 --> 00:14:54

What if you did good? Like what if you got to 28 on 30? But still, when you're going through that, you know, when you're looking at your test paper, even though you know you've passed still just looking at it makes you a little nervous. Where did I lose marks? Okay, I lost point two five here and point two five here, even though it's just point two, five, but it's embarrassing to look at it, isn't it? Has it ever happened that somebody has videotaped you like recorded you?

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

And then they're showing you your video, maybe from childhood or something? You don't want to look at it.

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

it right? Your parents? Do they ever tell you about your stories of your childhood? Isn't it embarrassing to hear those stories? Some of them? Yeah, we're very happy about them. But most of them were like, Mom, please be quiet. Please don't tell the whole world about this. Right? Pictures, maybe when they're put on display, it's embarrassing to look at them. Even though you're looking so cute. But what happens? You don't like the dress that you're wearing? Because it's so old fashioned No. Right? Or you don't like the fact that there is a diaper box right next to you, right? Or you don't like the fact that there has been an all over your face, or whatever it is, because it's

00:15:33 --> 00:15:35

embarrassing to look at it.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:44

Right? Now, if we are embarrassed to look at pictures that our parents thought were worth preserving,

00:15:46 --> 00:16:10

or videos that somebody thought was worth putting on camera, or an assignment or a test paper that we did our best on the marks of which are going in our final record. I mean, it's embarrassing to look at these things. What about our life record, our life record based on which either we're getting reward or something else? May Allah protect us?

00:16:11 --> 00:16:54

So no matter what they do, they're afraid because they know that they're going back to Allah and these deeds, they're going to see them they're going to see them and what if there's even a little bit in these deeds that's enough to corrupt and destroy those deeds? Which Allah, Allah whom in our lobby him Raji, Rouen? Hola, Erica, you said, Your Honor, Phil Hira. Those are the ones who hasten in doing good deeds. They never have enough of doing good. Because they know that if they wrote one test, it wasn't good enough, they can do better next time. So they write another one, and they write another one, and they make another painting. And they make another picture and they make another

00:16:54 --> 00:17:09

video. You know, like, for example, you take a picture, because you have to send it to somebody, right? And then you look at the picture, and you're like, No, no, this is this is not right to take another picture, and then take another picture, then take another picture, until you get to the one that is perfect,

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

isn't it? So?

00:17:13 --> 00:17:27

You don't for example, if you're going through a photo album, digital photo album, and you see one scene has like five pictures. Why? Because you took one picture, you weren't satisfied. So you took another one, and you took another one, and you took another one.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:51

And then finally, you got a picture that you were satisfied with, then you stopped. Right. So when it comes to performing good deeds, some people are not satisfied with what they've done. So what do they do? They do it once and think let me try again. Let me try again. Let me do it one more time. Let me do it another time.

00:17:52 --> 00:18:33

Hola. Iike. You said your honor, Phil. Hi, Rod. These people are the ones who hasten and doing good, who are not satisfied and bored of doing good. They want more and more opportunities will home Lucha salvia Cohn. And those are the ones who outstrip others in in performing the good deeds. This is why they're the first ones. You know, for example, Imam Muhammad have been humble. He was on his final sickness. When it was clear that he wasn't going to survive. He was going to die. One of you know, the annual or in a person who had a lot of knowledge he came to visit him I had been humbled. Right. And I haven't been humbled started asking him questions.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:54

All right. He's on his deathbed. And he's asking a knowledgeable man questions. And so somebody said to him, even now, yeah, about dilla what's the point? Why are you asking? What are you going to do with this? He said, I'd rather die knowing about this than not knowing about this.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:07

I do I'd rather die. Having a minimum of this. You see, not satisfied, more and more and more. Hola, Erica, you said your own felucca, you hot, we're homeless, have you gone?

00:19:09 --> 00:19:18

You see anything that you do? And you enjoy it, you'll find it meaningful? Right? You can never have enough of it. So for example, if you watch a TV show,

00:19:20 --> 00:19:27

and you enjoyed it, then what do you want? Next episode? And then what do you want next season? And then what do you want another season?

00:19:28 --> 00:19:59

Right? If you enjoy some good food at a particular restaurant, you eat there once and then what do you do? You eat there again? And then you eat there again? Right? Because you enjoy the experience. You enjoy the experience, the experience matters to you. It's not about the fact that you've spent hundreds of dollars at that restaurant. That was not your goal. Your goal was not to spend money there. What was your goal? Experience? Right. So likewise, performing good deeds

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

That is also an experience meaning an experience that brings you joy that brings you true happiness that brings you you know, a feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction.

00:20:12 --> 00:20:58

And this experience, the one who's addicted to it, he can never have enough of it. Hola Erica, you set your own a filter you rot. We're homeless have your phone. So we see over here in these verses that there are two types of people. One group is of those who are in hombre in heedlessness drowned in the depths of ignorance and heedlessness confusion. They're lost ignorance. And the more they have of this world, the more they're lost, it's as if they feel entitled to the gifts of Allah subhanaw taala. And they think that if Allah subhanaw taala is giving them the blessings of this world, they deserve them. And because of that reason they are among their actions are few.

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

Then there is another way, which is of those who are afraid of their Lord. Those who

00:21:08 --> 00:21:10

are alert and conscious aware

00:21:11 --> 00:22:10

Mushfiq goon they're aware of their reality, and they're aware of the reality of their Lord. So no matter what they do, they're never 100% satisfied with it than ever considered to be sufficient. There's always a desire for improvement for increase. So such are the ones who get ahead in doing good. Such are the ones who do not delay doing good. While locally food and we do not burden we do not charge. Nelson any soul in law was our hurt except its capacity. Meaning every person is only burdened with that with which it can bear. Every person is made to go through a situation that he can handle. Every person is given a responsibility that he can manage while Anoka leaf on Epson Illa

00:22:12 --> 00:22:43

because sometimes we say, Oh, I can't pray properly, because there's so many distractions. Right. I can't do this good deed and I can't do that good deed because I've got no money. I'm so stressed out. I have children, I have so many responsibilities, know you can do good, no matter what situation you were in, because who put you in that situation? Allah subhanaw taala knowing that you can handle it, you have the capacity to do good. Being in that situation? Well, I know Californication, Illa was Aha,

00:22:44 --> 00:23:11

you know, for instance, you try to have kosher in Salah and you get really frustrated with yourself. You know, for instance, we learned about those five levels of praying, right? So the first level is of those who neglect the prayer, right? Who don't even perform it on time or properly. The second level is of the one who performs the property but the heart is distracted. The third level is of the one who is constantly fighting shaitan right? So because of that he's not able to enjoy salah

00:23:12 --> 00:23:26

and the fourth and the fifth are like really high. Right? You know, for instance, if you try your best get up on time you do your will do you had will do you did it again anyway. Right? You made sure there's nothing on your mind and you start praying and then your heart is distracted.

00:23:27 --> 00:23:48

And then you force yourself to have kosher and at the end of your Salah, you're so angry with yourself. You know, why? Why can't I have her shoe and then you're like, you know what, I give up? I give up. I'll go down from level three to level two. I'll just settle with it. No, you can't do that. You can never give up on doing good.

00:23:49 --> 00:24:42

Don't give up. You have the capacity to have for sure how encouraging this idea is. You have the ability to improve. You can have for sure in your Salah. You can never tell yourself I can't do this. Never tell yourself I'm not good enough for this. You are good enough for this. Definitely you can do it. Why? Because Willa Nuka leaf on axon Illa was Arha wala Dana Kitab Hoon.

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

With the record will only show what is true. While home law use lemon and they will not be wronged. No person will be treated unfairly on the Day of Judgment. What do we see in this is that however we live our life today, whatever we do in our life, that is what we will find tomorrow. That is what we will be judged on in total Jatha i are 29 We learn how that Kitab guna young to Carly Campbell Huck, in Kwinana Stancy Houma quantum Dharma Loon, we were recording whatever you were doing.

Luba home, rather their hearts fi la Marathi minha vida, they are in la Mora. Concerning this. la Mora again, the word is coming, what is the literal meaning of the word of ombre, a deep body of water? Right, so deep that you can't even tell how deep it is. What is actual depth, it's deep, dark. So once something is in it, it is lost. You can't even tell what's inside it. You know, sometimes water is shallow, or it is clear. So you can see the fish swimming. You can see the pebbles at the bottom right you can see the plants that are inside. And other times water is so deep or so dark inside that you can't see beyond a few inches maybe you don't know what's inside an

00:26:42 --> 00:27:15

alligator a fish what is there? And the darker it is the scarier it is, isn't it? Because you can't see inside? So balaclava won't be Ramallah Tim min Heather. Camera is used for heedlessness than right confusion? Because it's like darkness, you're not able to see. What is it that you can understand? When is it that you can perceive what is around you when you open your eyes? Right? The more you open them, the more you see, the more you grasp, the more you understand.

00:27:16 --> 00:28:03

But if a person opened his eyes, but he's surrounded with darkness, what can he see? Nothing. Right? So Bell polo, boom, their hearts are in confusion. Their hearts are in darkness, in ignorance in heedlessness drowned in it. And because of that, well a home or man or men do neither Alec and for them or Merlin deeds, men Dhoni other than their Lika. That, what does it mean by this? First of all we seen this is their hearts are covered with confusion over this over what over the heart, the truth, meaning they are confused about the reality of the chakra even because of the previous eye on what is mentioned.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:39

Right? So the idea of the Hereafter, they are in confusion about it. They don't think about it. Or even if they do think about it, they don't have any clear idea. They only see the darkness and confusion when they think about the hereafter. So they think I wonder if it's even going to happen. Yeah, you know what, maybe it'll happen. I don't think we're going to feel anything. Everybody's going to be asleep kind of dead. I don't know what's going to happen. They don't have a clear understanding of the reality of the ACO. And when a person does not believe in the

00:28:40 --> 00:29:06

then what happens? Then he performs actions that are much worse than kufr itself. Well, Uh hum. Ermelo min Duni VALIC. What does Dallek refer to that it refers to this gopher in the FL heedlessness of the era? That is worse, the actions that they do are much worse. Why are they much worse? Because if you think about it, what is it that forces a person to do right?

00:29:08 --> 00:29:11

The fear of being caught

00:29:12 --> 00:29:14

the fear of being held accountable.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:34

Right. So for example, you're driving and you're really enjoying driving really fast, no traffic, you know, the speed limit is quite high. Nobody's inside, there's no police car, nothing and you're tempted. you're tempted to go beyond the speed limit. Right? What happens?

00:29:36 --> 00:29:43

Do you really go beyond the speed limit? As soon as you hit it, you slow down as soon as you go a little bit faster, you slow down? Why?

00:29:44 --> 00:29:45

Because you're afraid of being caught.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:54

Right? Because a police car comes without any warning. The next thing you know you come across a black car, and you don't even realize it was a police car.

00:29:56 --> 00:29:59

So this realization that I could get caught

00:30:01 --> 00:30:36

What does it do? It forces you to do what is right. But when a person thinks, Oh no, I'm not going to be caught, I'll get away with this. Then what happens? His actions are worse. They get worse and worse and worse. What a home armor lumen Dooney Dalek home, Lucha army loon they are love for it mean those actions, I mean own ones who are performing me they're continuously doing them. They're habitually doing them over and over again, not just once or twice, but over and over again.

00:30:37 --> 00:31:20

You see in Surah Al Baqarah. One of the first characteristics we learn about people who have Taqwa is what those who believe in the hereafter with conviction, or whom Bill Filati, whom you can own, they have your kin in the occur. When a person realizes My words are being recorded, my deeds are being recorded. Angels are witnessing what I'm doing what I'm saying. And these deeds are going to be shown to Allah subhanaw taala he knows about them as I'm doing them. And on the Day of Judgment, this is going to come and face me, then what happens? A person forces himself to do what is right to modify his behavior to correct his behavior.

00:31:22 --> 00:32:03

But when the man enough that AI is not there, then there is no fear of Allah and when there is no fear of Allah, then his actions are worse what a home Armando mon Dooney, VALIC. Home Lucha I'm alone. But Until when will a person continue like this? Had the until either a health now when we cease mudra fee him, the affluent ones of them. Those who are affluent among them, Bill either be with the punishment, meaning the affluent ones are seized with the punishment either home, then immediately they are rune, they begin to cry, they shriek they yell.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:12

You know, when a person does something wrong once, okay, it was a mistake. It was an accident. Okay, it was a mistake, accept it.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:20

But if he does it again, then it's not a mistake. What is it? It's a decision.

00:32:21 --> 00:32:55

It is a decision, which is why generally what happens if a person does something wrong once he's not caught? He's given another chance. But when he does it again and again and again. Then what happens? Eventually he is caught? And he cannot say at that time. Oh, it was only my first time. No, it wasn't your first time. Not possible. It was definitely second or third time. And when we are repeating that action again and again, then it's not a mistake. It's a decision. A mistake made twice is not a mistake. It's a decision.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:23

It didn't happen by itself, we decided to do it. So when a person continues his life like this, then what happens eventually he is caught had either a hard Nammo trophy himself or the majority is actually Nutrafin. All right. Yeah. No, not the end for plural known as dropped over here because him is being connected. All right. And the singular form of this word is mudra. Who is muttrah? One who is living in luxury, affluence is

00:33:25 --> 00:33:49

the one who's got plenty. So when they're caught with the punishment, what does Allah say at once? De yadgir Arun aromas from Jeem Hamza Jewelle. And you are is a sound that is made in fright. When someone is startled when someone is horrified, and the scream out or they yell out or the shriek that is called you out.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:56

And what it implies over here is that they will scream out and wail

00:33:57 --> 00:34:07

out of fear of the punishment or because they have been caught or yet your own also implies that then they call upon Allah.

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

Then they call upon Allah supplicating to him, as if they are crying out for relief. They're crying out to be saved. Notice over here mutrah Feanor mentioned when they are caught, because a person who is living in luxury, right? Then what happens? He becomes heedless.

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

This is why the prophets of Allah is Allah. He instructed the companions to visit the graves. Why? To take a lesson to take a lesson. Because when we live in concrete houses when we see food and so much food and when we see so many colors, and when we are, you know living enjoying one thing after the other, we forget death. We forget that we're going to end up in the grave all

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


00:35:01 --> 00:35:36

what did the Prophet said a lot is that I'm saying that remember the destroyer of pleasures, and what is the destroyer of pleasures? It's the remembrance of death. Remember that? Because when a person indulges in pleasure after pleasure after pleasure, then he becomes heedless, he becomes heedless. And then when he is struck by something painful, then what happens, he screams out the loudest, he screams out the loudest either whom you had your own.

00:35:37 --> 00:36:15

On my last visit to Pakistan, I went to this particular place where it was basically a farmers market, but a very different kind of farmers market. And I was so afraid that I didn't even get off the car. So many people, it was just too different, too strange for me, even though I grew up in Pakistan, but going back after so many years, it was difficult to even step in a place like that. So anyway, while I'm sitting in the car, I'm looking outside, and I see little children, okay, this little boy, I think maybe he was four years old or something. And he's got slippers on when it's freezing cold outside, just a sweater, maybe close or half wet, covered in dirt. And he's running

00:36:15 --> 00:36:42

around with a wheelbarrow. All right, trying to find work from anybody, so that he could transport their fruit and vegetables and maybe make a few rupees at the end. And I was just thinking, this boy, where's his mother? Where's his father? Where's his older brother all by himself. He's working. And I was thinking if my son was here, anywhere in a place like this with a wheelbarrow on his own, his concern would be where's mom? Or his dad? Why am I alone here?

00:36:44 --> 00:36:49

Right, because the more comforts we have, the more sensitive we become.

00:36:50 --> 00:37:12

Than the slightest strike of, you know, pain or hardship. We scream out the loudest, we scream so much, we fought so much over petty issues. You know, just because our coffee is not the right temperature. We fought so much. Right? Just because, you know, there is a small scratch in our phone. We are so angry

00:37:13 --> 00:37:15

that we are upset the whole day.

00:37:16 --> 00:37:21

And there are other people who have problems that are much worse than just a scratch on the phone.

00:37:22 --> 00:37:29

But they don't scream out like that. so hot that either a hot no trophy him will either either homage or own.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:40

You see having more and more blessings of this life. It's a huge fitna. It's a huge trial and we don't look at it like that.

00:37:42 --> 00:38:07

We think money, food, clothes, house, car, all these things are blessings, they are blessings definitely they are and we are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala but at the same time, they are a huge a huge test that do we remember our reality and the reality of this life? The reality of Allah subhanaw taala while living amongst these things, or do we make these things our ultimate goal and desire

00:38:08 --> 00:39:05

Hector either a Havana trophy him will either be either home yours your own, then they cry out for help. They scream out for help. Allah says learn that you are OLIO lethargy Do not cry out Aloma today there is no point in crying out today. cry out for help and cry out in pain. But it's not going to help because in the come indeed you Mina from US law Tom saloon you will not be helped. Today you are not going to be helped your calls will not be responded to why? Because other candidates IRT God in fact Canada was it my versus my vs. Allah's vs used to be.la la comm recited on you for quantum but what was your response? Who you were I let our copy come on your heels Thank

00:39:05 --> 00:39:59

you soon turning back you will turn back. Today you call upon us you will not be responded. Why? Because yesterday when you were called. You did not respond. Allah's verses were recited on you but what was your reaction? Couldn't toma Allah or Kobe come thank you soon. Thank you soon from NASA known capsid NACA sites to shrink to withdraw to recoil. So for example, a snake right or or a spring All right, you open it, you stretch it out. And then what happens as you let it go, recoils, right, it was big, stretched out, but as soon as you let it go, it shrinks it becomes small. This is NACA saw. So when the verses of Allah were recited on you, you shrank meaning you

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

You resist it. You avoided you kept away. You kept away from the I was stuck between me he so first of all you avoided them you didn't want to listen to them. As soon as you heard Allah being mentioned Quran being mentioned something that Allah has said being mentioned instantly you left instantly you moved away you didn't want to listen.

00:40:24 --> 00:41:12

Why most stuck Bettina Biggie, being arrogant with it. Mr. Beatty in Florida, Mr. McMahon, who is Mr. Akbar, one who considers himself to be great, because Capoeira literally means to be great cubby it who is Cubby, one who is great, right big. So for example, one was old in eighth grade in age, grade in their status cubbies. Most stuck bit. One who seeks greatness considers to be great, right? Or very, very great. So most stuck between you became very arrogant, be with it meaning with the verses with the Quran with the message of Allah. You look down on the truth as if you were too good for it.

00:41:13 --> 00:42:02

Sam Ilan. Conversing by night, the Jew room speaking evil. Sam Iran, Sam it from the root letter seen meme rah Summer. Summer is used for the darkness of the night. What is somewhat darkness of the night, like for example, aboard said la tikka, Samara. Well come on up. I will not come to you in the darkness of the night nor in the moonlight. Meaning whether the moon is full half or not there at all, crescent, whatever, I am not coming at all. All right. So Samira, what the summer me darkness of the night when there is no moonlight even. Sam it, Sam it is who, someone who tells stories at night,

00:42:03 --> 00:42:11

to pass time for the purpose of entertainment. So far this summer is also used for storytelling at night.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:36

You see the Arabs, and not just the Arabs, many nations of the past, alright, even today, this happens in a different way. We see that people in general, what they do is that at nighttime, they sit together and to tell stories to each other. Why? to unwind, to relax, for entertainment.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:42

Right? That you've worked all day, you've worked all week. Now at nighttime, you just chill.

00:42:43 --> 00:43:21

So for example, the people of Makkah, what they would do is that at nighttime, they would go to these places where they would drink alcohol. And they would also have certain people as entertainers, who would tell stories, all right, or, for example, thinking women or things like that. And there's modern versions of this today. Right? So for example, we learned about a model below on who that one night he went to this particular place where his friends would gather, to listen to the stories to talk to each other to chat and converse, and also have alcohol, right? So he went one night, and he found that nobody was there.

00:43:22 --> 00:44:04

Nobody was there. None of his friends were there. Even the person who served the wine even he was not there. Now imagine if a person has this urge to drink alcohol, right? And he doesn't find it. What is he going to do? Just go and sleep? Now he needs to take his mind off of it. Right? Obviously, this is before Islam. All right. He said I went to do to laugh. In the middle of the night. He said, You know what, let me just go to the huddle. take my mind off of alcohol and all of this. I'll go to the laugh. When he goes to do to laugh in the darkness of the night. Who does he find near the Kaaba, the prophets of Allah is a non performing the Salah. So remember the loved one

00:44:04 --> 00:44:12

who thought to himself, you know, this is my chance. Let me go and finish them off. It's the middle of the night. Nobody will know. I can just go and finish it.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:26

Right. In the morning, people will just find him dead and that's it. They'll have nobody to blame. So I'm one of the lowering who said I went closer. And as he drew closer to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he heard him reciting the Quran.

00:44:28 --> 00:45:00

And he said I was so amazed by the Quran I thought, What is He? Is he a boy or something? You know, this is very impressive. And the prophets of Allah has been recited woman who is totally shattered, right? This is not the word of a poet. So I'm gonna learn who's you know, he's thinking in his heart. Wow. Wow. How did he know what I was thinking? Is he a soothsayer? Does he know my mind? Can you read my mind? Well, ma Hua kolayca hin Alright, this is not the word of a soothsayer. What is this? Who is this guy? What is he

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

Meeting. So anyway, he listened to the recitation of the Quran. And this was the first time ever he heard the Prophet salallahu Salam reciting the Quran, and the Quran had an impact on his heart. He changed his mind and he went back of 100 Allah. And sometime later, Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with Islam. So anyway, Sam, it is who? Someone who is talking by night entertaining by night listening to stories, narrating stories. All right. And there's modern versions of this today. When we are sitting in our bedrooms or in our living rooms, all the lights are off except just one big screen. Right? And what are we watching stories that you rune that Jerome from her Jean bra? What

00:45:45 --> 00:45:51

does Hedorah mean to leave? Right from this is the word Hijra. What do you leave?

00:45:52 --> 00:45:54

What do you leave something that's really good?

00:45:56 --> 00:46:18

What do you leave something that you consider? Bad, right? That it doesn't suit you anymore? It's not good for you anymore. It's not healthy for you. It's not safe for you. So you leave it? All right. Now, what you're right is to speak ill because what we don't like what is not good for us anymore, we start talking negatively about it.

00:46:19 --> 00:47:05

Right? Like for example, just because we have found that if we have too much milk or dairy, it gives us health problems. So we say all dairy is bad and you know, so on and so forth. No, all dairy is not bad. But why is it that people will speak bad about dairy? Because they have an issue with it? They consider it to be bad for themselves. So anyway, they had to ruin what does it mean you speak evil? You speak nonsense. You say that which is inappropriate that which is indecent. So look at the whole idea. Now. My verses were recited upon you. But instead of listening, you shrank. You kept away.

00:47:06 --> 00:47:50

Mr. Beatty, Bettina. You were so arrogant towards the Quran, that you thought you were too good for it. So you didn't even listen to it. And instead, you spent your time doing what? Samuelson? At night, you would spend your time entertaining yourself listening to stories? And if you would say anything that had your own, you'd speak nonsense. Nonsense about what about the Quran? For hush indecent, inappropriate things about the deen? Because many times when people sit together in these gatherings, they have to entertain themselves, right? And after a few minutes, you run out of ideas and you have to crack jokes and you have to talk about other people. And what is it that we talk

00:47:50 --> 00:48:31

about? Sometimes the profit and loss and sometimes the Dean sometimes a person who is a Muslim, that you know we speak nonsense, nonsense, literally speaking evil because of Mushrikeen. Literally, they would gather together at night talking bad things about the prophets of Allah talking about the Quran making fun of the Quran making fun of Islam, making fun of the Muslims, but in this is a lesson for us. Because what is Allah subhanaw taala criticizing over here, there are nightly entertainments you had no time for the book of Allah. But you had all the time to sit at night, and watch and listen to nonsense.

00:48:33 --> 00:48:34

Literally nonsense.

00:48:36 --> 00:48:40

Because if you think about it, any kind of, for example, TV show,

00:48:41 --> 00:48:43

which one is 100% clean and pure.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:58

Which one? I mean, starts as a very clean season, for example TV show. And then in the second third, fourth episode, what happens romance kicks in and then for her and then more for her and more for her and more for her.

00:48:59 --> 00:49:22

And then we start getting worried about all how come he doesn't love her? And how come she doesn't love him? And she shouldn't say that and he should do that. Really? This is nonsense. What kind of words do people say on TV? Are they decent words? Can we repeat those words? Can we describe those scenes?

00:49:23 --> 00:49:39

Can we look at those scenes? Can we know Allah is criticizing this here? Allah doesn't approve of this moussaka, Bettina be Samuel on June. Let's listen to the recitation of these verses. Yeah.

00:49:40 --> 00:49:46

You will also localu Amina point. Do you want slaley?
