Baroda bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim is number 123. Good luck to all Dhonielle mousseline get the bat it denied, don't the people of odd and mousseline, the messengers, the people of odd denied the messengers. Do you notice the word cut the Beth's she denied? Does it mean that the people of odd were all women? So why is the feminine verb used? Why not cut Baba? Why cut the bits? Because in Arabic when you're referring to certain nations, like for example, that people have odd, then female pronouns are used. So because of it, Aden, the people of add denied and mousseline all of the messengers, how did they deny all of the messengers when they denied the

00:00:54 --> 00:01:39

messenger who was sent to them? And when was that it call Allah whom? A whom, when their brother said to them, who was their brother? Who don't? Who are they his salaam, so who the early his Salam, the prophet hood, was sent to the nation of odd and Allah subhanaw taala called him their brother. Why? Because he was one of them. And he was well known to them and he also had brotherly concern for his people. So he said to them a lot that the cone, do you not fear? Do you not fear Allah or Allah do not that the goon you protect yourselves? Because remember that Taqwa? First of all, it is understood as fear of Allah. So do you not have any fear of God? Meaning what kind of actions are

00:01:39 --> 00:02:26

you committing? And secondly, do you not protect yourselves? Meaning what kind of actions are you doing that you're putting yourself up for punishment? I love that Takane won't you fear Allah meaning you should fear Allah, you should do something to protect yourselves in the law calm indeed I am for you. Rasulullah Amin, a trustworthy messenger. The fact is that when a person is disobeying Allah subhanho wa taala. What is he doing in reality, he is harming himself. Even though in the act of disobedience, there may be a lot of pleasure, a lot of fun. In reality, a person is putting himself up for punishment for loss, and later on, he will regret either in this life or definitely

00:02:26 --> 00:03:08

in the Hereafter. This is why Allah talkin Why don't you do something to protect yourself? In other words, why are you putting yourself in danger? Why are you harming yourself? Why are you destroying yourself? By committing these crimes? What were the crimes of these people, we will learn about their crimes in the following verses. But in particular, what was common amongst all of these nations was their schicke. associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala, whether it is schicke, or it is lying, lying to who our friends or our parents, our siblings, whoever it is, lying, cheating, all of these actions are what in reality, their sins. And when a person is sinning, when he's

00:03:08 --> 00:03:56

crossing limits that Allah has said, then he is putting himself up for punishment. Factor Kula worldly, your own. He says, I'm a messenger to you, I'm conveying this message to you faithfully, without holding anything back without changing anything. So fear Allah and obey me, obey me. Notice the Prophet said Allah, your only He did not say worship me. He said, obey me. But who is it that you should worship Allah? He said, Woman LUCAM and I do not ask you, I lay on it on what for this work that I am doing of conveying Allah's message to you, I do not demand from you in return men edger in any other. Look at the word men, what does men mean from but men, it also gives a meaning

00:03:56 --> 00:04:38

off a little bit. So men adjutant meaning not even a little bit of compensation, a little bit of reward, meaning I want nothing from you in return. Why? Because in Nigeria, my reward is not in there except our level of Bill Alameen upon the Lord of the Worlds, meaning I am His Messenger, He is the one who has sent me and he is the one who will compensate me you don't need to worry about my wages, you don't need to worry about my pay. I am God's Messenger and He will take care of that. Now the people of odd they're mentioned in great detail in the Quran, this is not the first time we are reading about them in the Quran, and it will certainly not be the last time and we see this like for

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

example, in sort of the short Ah, so far we have read several stories and in the following verses also we will come across many stories many people of the past and the reason why the stories of the people of the past are spread out through the Quran, is because each time a story is mentioned, we are being taught a lesson. Like we discussed earlier. The Quran is not a book of information. It's a book of

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

lessons and in order to learn lessons sometimes you have to look into things which you are already familiar with. Isn't that so? You you are made to revisit and we think about things which you know very well. So, the Quran is a book of lessons and over here again the people of other being mentioned why so that we take a lesson from their story. Now the people of odd how are they described in the Quran? First of all, we learn that the people of odd came soon after the people of New Orleans Salaam in the Quran in surah Arafa 69 We learn is jhana come hola Farah min birdie told me know that Allah made you hola fat successors on the earth after the people of New Alayhis Salam.

00:05:45 --> 00:06:32

So people have odd our ancient, very ancient people. Now of course they're extinct but they lived it is said that approximately 3000 years before restarting his sternum. Secondly, we learned about the people of our that they were a very strong and mighty nation. They weren't just any people they were people who possessed a lot of physical strength a lot of resources. They were very mighty into the full Senate if 15 we learn that the people have odd they said for a madam for stock but who fill out the belated Hakoah Carlo man Asha Domina Cova they said that who is stronger than us in strength they boasted about their physical Mike their physical strength meaning no one is more powerful than

00:06:32 --> 00:07:15

us we are the most mighty people men are Shadowman nakawa In total Arafa 69 We learned was that they can feel healthy best for their profits that to them that Allah has given you added increased physical strength meaning he's given you such physical strength that he has not given to others. Then we also learn about the people have odd that with their physical strength and all of the resources they had they constructed large buildings they were known for this so for example in through the furniture is six to eight we learned LM curve okay for foreigner logbook or beyond era modality Mazatlan Emad their city of Iran, which was full off very mad fillers. Fillers, what does

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

that indicate? Huge buildings.

00:07:18 --> 00:08:01

And Allah describes that city Ilam as a Leti lamb you walk me through Hasselblad that these people constructed such buildings with such pillars, the likes of which were not to be found anywhere else, or the likes of the people of odd were to be found nowhere else in the world. So they also constructed large buildings. And then we also learned that these people were especially very, very proud. Because what happens if you've got the physical strength? If you've got the looks, and then you've got the money? Then what do you think is going to come next? If a person has both of these things, what's going to happen next? Pride.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:48

So these people were also extremely proud. We learn in sort of the hood if 59 were till God Jehovah will be it will be him where our soul Rousselot Waterboro Umrah Coolidge a burden I need the people of our they followed the command of every Jiabao tyrant, so it shows that their leaders were also oppressors. Then in total Arafa 70 We learn that these people they were so stubborn on their ship that they said to their Prophet, bring this what you threaten us with. So again, it shows their arrogance and their pride. Now, over here in particular, what is mentioned about the people of odd What did their profits say to them? He said a tuber noona a do Deborah Nuna you all build you all

00:08:48 --> 00:09:23

construct from the word Bruneian? Burner by noon? Yeah. Bina, Bina construction to construct something Boolean that which has been constructed, all right, Banner the act of building so double noona do you all build you construct be commonly be at Cooley every rear in elevation, meaning at every elevation, every high place? You build?

00:09:24 --> 00:09:27

You build an IRA assign

00:09:28 --> 00:09:41

meaning you construct buildings at every high place. And these buildings are not for the purpose of residence? No, there simply is. Why is the building called assign?

00:09:42 --> 00:09:59

Assign because the purpose of these buildings was to show off their strength their resources, like for example, a landmark or a monument or something like that when it's made. What's the objective? What's the purpose? It is to show

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

that we have so much gold that we can actually make a statue out of gold. We have so many artists, we have so many resources that we can actually build all of this. So at habenula be co located here in Islington. Now look at the word rear and this is new, the word rear Roya iron is used for L McCann and Mirtha fair, meaning a place that is elevated a high place and such a place. Is it visible from far? Is it? Of course it is. Now imagine if there's a high place that's visible from far and on top of that is a monument. Can everybody see it? Of course, can you see from a distance for sure you can.

00:10:42 --> 00:11:27

So he said that you make all of this data bassoon, amusing yourselves to our bassoon from ibis, ah, Bertha, what does our birth mean? Our birth is to do a purposeful action uselessly, a purposeful action, meaning it's not that a person is just doing nothing. No, he's actually doing something. But what's the objective of that something that he's doing? Nothing? Nothing useful. Like, for example, if you are cutting paper, why are you cutting paper because you need that paper to be cut in a specific shape so that you can use it for a certain reason. Now, if you're just cutting newspaper, into shreds, why are you doing that? Why are you doing that? Okay? If a three year old is doing it,

00:11:27 --> 00:12:07

you can understand they're practicing their cutting skills. But if as a 25 year old, you're just shredding newspaper, what's the purpose? What's the reason? If there's a reason? Okay, go ahead and do it for two hours if there's a reason. But if there's no reason at all, and once you've shredded that entire paper and you're throwing it in the garbage, what was that activity of two hours? What was that? Useless? This is our bus. Like, for example, bubble wrap, right? So for example, bubble wrap, you're just popping those bubbles, right? For fun. You're putting in effort. Sometimes it's not that easy, because you have to keep doing it. And one after the other. I remember, there was an

00:12:07 --> 00:12:19

app. I don't know if an advanced version of that exists today. But there was an app, all you had to do was a step the bubbles. Like seriously, tap the bubbles for what do you get scores? And even if you do get scores, what are you going to do with it?

00:12:20 --> 00:12:53

Pop an advanced level of you know, some bubbles or something. What's the purpose? I mean, tapping itself is a useful action. But the purpose is nothing. So taba throne, this is what you're doing. Meaning, you know why it gets addictive, because you don't feel satisfied, you don't feel satisfied. So you want to do more and more and more. And the more you do it, the less satisfied you feel until you finally delete that app, or just throw your phone down and go do something else that will actually bring you a sense of fulfillment.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:16

So he says to them that what are you doing, you're constructing all of these monuments, these buildings. In reality, you're just wasting your time, your resources, your skill, your talent, why, just for the purpose of fun, just for the purpose of displaying and showing off your strength and your power and your wealth? Why would you do that?

00:13:17 --> 00:14:00

Like for example, if there is a city where people are living, and they do build some nice, you know, monuments or structures or art pieces or things like that around the city, is that something good? It could be good, why not? Like for example, when you go to Makkah, there are many beautiful things that you see around the city. You will see for example, a bridge that you have to go under but it's actually like a Quran, like almost half that's open and you have to drive from under it. So these are beautiful things to look at. However, does this Iam mean that we shouldn't do these kind of things. Because Prophet who is criticizing his nation, a tuber Nona because Lydia in Ireton, tar

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

bassoon that if you're not going to live in it, you're not going to sit under to get some shade. You're not really making any money out of it. This is a waste of time. You shouldn't be doing this. He's criticizing them. So does this mean that we should not indulgent similar things?

00:14:17 --> 00:14:22

Remember, Jamal beautification is for three purposes.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:45

It could be for three reasons. One is that which is praiseworthy, meaning if you adopt that beautification, whether it's in the form of a structure, it is in the form of clothing, it's in the form of some art or you know, an art piece, whatever it is, it could be praiseworthy, when is it praiseworthy, when is it good? When it is done for the sake of Allah?

00:14:46 --> 00:15:00

It is done to please Allah subhanahu Atharva Makana Lilla this the gem will this adornment this beautification, whether it is on our body or it is in our homes or in

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

The city in the country that we're living in, it could be good when it is done for the sake of Allah. Now the question is what do you mean by doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala? How do you do this for the sake of Allah to please Allah, when and how?

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

Think about it.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:56

So for example, a woman is adorning herself before her husband so good, Mashallah. Very nice. Because usually women don't do that. When we're going to parties or weddings, that's when we really adorn ourselves and go to extreme lengths in beautifying ourselves but at home, it's another story. So if a woman does that for her husband, essentially, I mean, she's doing it in a halal way, the context is all halal. It's going to inshallah increase in appreciation and love for each other. And this will strengthen the marriage bond, which will be a source of good for both people, then inshallah for the sake of Allah Hamdulillah. God, how else

00:15:59 --> 00:16:47

so for example, if a masjid is built in a beautiful way, or a masjid, is made to look nice. Why? How is this for the sake of Allah? Because when people will come and pray in the masjid? Will they feel good? Yes. Think about it. Any place that you go to? Doesn't that affect you? Like, for example, why is it that some stores you walk into, and you're like, I have to get something from here. Why? Because everything just smelled so good. It smelled so good that even when you're passing from outside, you can smell everything in there. So the atmosphere has an effect on us. When you go to a masjid that is bright and clean, then what happens? You want to be there. But if it's dark and

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

gloomy and smelly, and stuffy than what happens, you fall asleep? Or you're like, it just feels so icky. I have to get out of here, isn't it? So? When is it that you can really do such the property?

00:17:01 --> 00:17:39

When the carpet fields clean, it smells clean, and it looks clean. But the moment you put your head on the ground and you're wondering, did a child ever puke over here? Or what happened? You like seriously, sometimes you get those mounts. So then what can you actually do so do properly? Never. So having a nice clean carpet, an expensive one maybe that's actually soft and it's easy to set on. Having nice clean painted walls, having nice bright lights, all of this, Xena, this is for who? Lilla it is for Allah because it is helping us obey Allah.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:45

It is helping us implement Allah's orders.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:32

Advanced technology or like really fancy. And not just fancy, but really advanced buildings and all such structures, which could be even in Makkah, is that okay? Why not? I mean, when you're doing a live and you see that clock, it's very, very helpful, isn't it? As opposed to taking out your phone all the time. And then looking for the time all you have to do no matter where you are in the huddle, just look up and you know what the time is. Likewise, now these buildings being so close to the Haram, it makes it easier for you to actually go for to love and worship Allah subhanaw taala easily. So I mean, of course, things should be in moderation, but this kind of beauty, adornment,

00:18:32 --> 00:19:14

these kinds of advancements, if they are for the right reason for the sake of Allah Lilla helping us worship Allah helping us obey Allah, then there is nothing wrong with the Zina nothing wrong at all. In fact, it is praiseworthy. Even if a lot of money has been spent on this, why not? Why not? I mean, think about this huge expansion that has been done on the HUD home, I am so happy about that. It's actually making it possible for people to go and do the wife and Umrah you know, like for example, that that fancy thing that they've put in the actual month off, so that there's two levels now of doing tawaf, come on. Otherwise, if you didn't find room in the month, you would have to go,

00:19:14 --> 00:19:59

you know, upstairs on the upper floors, and it will take three times the amount of time that you would spend, I mean, it would take so long. So now I'll handle the lights easier. So these conveniences if there are for the purpose of accommodating more people, if they're for the purpose of making a better, easier than why not? If you have the money, why not? Isn't it better than wasting it on other things? So, remember that this kind of Jamal is praiseworthy, another kind of Jamal. The second type is that which is blameworthy it is Moom meaning it is condemned. Which one when this Jamal beautification is adopted for the purpose of dunya for the purpose of faith

00:20:00 --> 00:20:43

him for showing off to show that yeah, we also have this much money to show that Yeah, even I went back home and bought all these nice fancy clothes. And I can also dress up in parties with the wrong intention. This is what this is something that is blameworthy. Thirdly, the third type of Jamal is that which is neither praiseworthy nor blameworthy, neither of the two objectives are met, meaning a person is not doing for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Nor is he doing it to show off for the purpose of dunya he's just doing it because he's doing it. And many times we do this, you know, for example, we will decorate our houses, why not to show off, not so that my house looks good. It's

00:20:43 --> 00:20:48

that whenever I walk in, I actually feel grateful to Allah subhanaw taala just we're doing it because everybody's doing it.

00:20:49 --> 00:21:07

So this is a waste. So what's the main lesson than that anytime any kind of beautification is adopted, whether in our body or in our homes, in any way, it should be for whose sake for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:08 --> 00:21:55

what that though he donor, he said, and you take meaning you build for yourselves. maslon Yara masonicare phalluses. plural of the word must now what is Messina? Fortress? What kind of fortress in particular that which is built to protect from enemy. Meaning it's so strong that once you hide in it, you're safe. Also Mothma from Saad no nine sunnah. It's basically manufacturing. So that which is constructed artistically meaning it's not just a building, it's a balance that actually looks nice. So you build for yourselves palaces and fortresses. La La Quinta, hello, Dune, so that you might abide eternally the Hello dune from Hollywood?

00:21:57 --> 00:22:19

Why are you building such houses such palaces? What's the reason? So that you can live forever? Can you live forever? No, you cannot? Basically he is criticizing them that? Don't you have anything better to do? What is the purpose of these structures? How are you making them? How are you setting them up thinking that you will remain in them forever?

00:22:20 --> 00:22:35

Because think about it, if there is something that is going to benefit you for one day that you're going to use for one day? How much money will you invest into it? How much of your time and your energy will you invest into something that's going to help you for just one day?

00:22:36 --> 00:23:22

Everything you've got no way very little. Now, if something is good for five years, then how much money are you going to invest into it? A little bit more? Correct. And when something you know it has a lifetime warranty, for instance, then you're willing to pay hundreds of dollars 1000s of dollars even why? Because there's lifetime warranty, you're willing to invest your money, you're willing to invest your time, a lot of yourself into it, because you're gonna get back from it a lot. He says that you will build your houses as if you're going to live in them forever. Meaning you pay attention to so much detail. its color, its size, its strength, everything as if these houses are

00:23:22 --> 00:23:27

never going to break as if you're never going to die, as if you're going to abide there in forever.

00:23:29 --> 00:24:09

This idea is so frightening. Because if you just look at your own self, at least for myself, when I read this, I was surprised that how quickly we forget this, how much time and energy and money we invest into our living spaces, decorating them, and then redecorating them, furnishing them, and then changing that furniture because we're bored of it, right? And then buying something new because it just matches what you have already. And then changing something because it just doesn't look nice anymore. And then most of all, how much time we spend in looking for the right things?

00:24:11 --> 00:24:51

How much time and then how much money as if we're going to use those things forever. As if we're gonna live in these spaces forever. We're not going to live in these living spaces forever. They're just temporary. So he criticizes them that Who are you trying to impress? Now remember, there is nothing wrong in building a house. There is nothing wrong in decorating your house. But the intention should not be to show off. And secondly, it should not consume a person to such an extent that you don't have time to do what is more important in your life.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:57

But sadly, if you think about it, for most adults, what is their concern?

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

What is their cause?

00:25:00 --> 00:25:40

Certain house, either we have to pay off the mortgages or we have to pay off the bills, or we have to pay off the furniture that we bought on credit. This is what we are being consumed by. So it should not consume us to such an extent that we don't have time and energy for other things. Likewise, the intention should be correct. It shouldn't be for the sake of showing off to others, for the sake of impressing other people. You know, for example, sometimes literally, people will walk into their houses. Okay, if I were to walk into this house, how would it look? Okay, this wall, how would it look? Okay, no, no, I have to fix this, I have to fix that we've paid so much attention

00:25:40 --> 00:25:58

to detail, especially women, that we leave no corner, no wall, nothing in our house empty, it has to be filled with something. And then the rest of our time is spent in cleaning that maintaining that, or making sure that our children don't ruin it.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:02

Were we created to worship our houses

00:26:03 --> 00:26:19

were we created for that purpose, we were created for whose worship, the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And remember that when we fill our houses so much with even artwork, that there's nothing in the house that is plain,

00:26:21 --> 00:26:48

then you get no time to think, I mean, your mind is constantly being engaged. You know, like, for example, for children, they say just leave them on their own, you don't have to fill their, their space with toys. You know, for example, a child is sitting in a car seat and a toys dangling. A child is in the crib, and there's so many toys around and above, everywhere toys, toys, toys, what do they say leave them, let them be? Let them think on their own even.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:53

So likewise, for us, we need some mental space also,

00:26:54 --> 00:27:18

not just houses, but also appearance, we spent so much time like fixing every little thing, like making sure that there's not even like a little piece of hair on our bodies, or like, not one piece of hair on our head is like Miss colored or whatever. And it's like we're so obsessive over our bodies. I mean, to a certain extent, it's fine. But when we become obsessive, then it's a problem.

00:27:20 --> 00:28:01

So Michael, also think of our wedding dresses, like my wedding dress, personally, my mother in law went back home to get and she spent so much money and time designing. And I told her to get something simple, but now it's like, it's so nice, but it's so nice. I can't wear it. So like, I don't want to look like a bride wearing it to another party. So I wish I didn't have that or I just like borrowed one or I don't know, I wish I could sell it or do something with it. Because it's like a nest off. And it's not like I'm gonna wear it ever again. And then the problem is that if you don't get rid of it immediately, five years down, nobody's gonna take it either. Nobody's gonna take

00:28:01 --> 00:28:05

it from you why? Because the fashion has changed.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:08

So this is often

00:28:10 --> 00:28:21

the author Seth Godin, he writes about front lawns. So for example, a huge property that a person may have, they have their house, but in front of their house is a front lawn.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:27

He says that front lawns are organized waste, organized waste,

00:28:29 --> 00:29:11

communicating confidence and a bit of arrogance. Why does he write that? Because he says that these front lawns, they came from the idea that we have so much money, that we have so much land to spare, that we don't need to use it for farming, we don't even need to use it for grazing our animals. It's just extra land, you know, we're so rich. So what people started doing was that they would build their houses a little far from where their property began, just to show off. So this is the origin of front lawns. So he says that the reason you have a front lawn is to demonstrate to your friends and neighbors how much time and energy you are prepared to waste. All right. Now, I'm not saying

00:29:11 --> 00:29:42

don't take care of your front lawn. It's there, it's there. But you get the idea that so many things which have become a part of our lives in reality serve no purpose whatsoever. And what they're doing essentially, is that they're consuming us consuming our money, our time, our mental energy, mental capacity. So we don't have the time or the strength to do other things. We really don't. Because we're so preoccupied with these unnecessary things in our lives that what is more important, we cannot bother to take care of it.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:59

A Buddha will deliver a new he said that once I came to the Prophet salallahu Salam and he was sitting in the shade of the Kaaba, and you were saying, who will act saloon what a Bill carrabba who will act saloon what a bill car but they are losers by the Lord of the car but they are

losers BY THE LORD OF THE garba. Buddha Dilawar and who he thought that maybe the Prophet said a Lawson was referring to me that I have done something wrong. So he said that I asked myself what is wrong with me? Is there anything wrong that I've done? Do I look like I've done something wrong? So then he said that I sat with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and I couldn't remain quiet because the prophets Allah wa salam kept repeating himself. So I asked him, that who, who are the losers? May my mother and father be sacrificed for you? The Prophet salallahu Salam replied, at thoroughness, I'm Wella. Those who have a lot of wealth, they are losers. They will definitely definitely be losers

00:30:46 --> 00:31:32

who will at Verona ammo Allah Illa, mancala. Hacker, the hacker the hacker, except for the one who does like this and this and this meaning, the one who gives and gives and gives you see something very beautiful I heard is that when Allah subhanaw taala gives us money, or things or food, sometimes it is for the reason off, so that we may pass it on to others, we are like a means that Allah subhanaw taala is giving it to us so that we can give to others. What happens with us is that when we got a lot of wealth, whatever form that wealth is in, we think, Oh, I don't need it, store it.

00:31:34 --> 00:31:44

I don't need it. Let me put it away. It can go in the basement, it can go in the garage until I need it. It can go into spare bedroom, spare bedroom,

00:31:45 --> 00:31:46


00:31:47 --> 00:32:28

So there's so much extra that we have. And we think we have to consume it, we have to use it. This is why stored save it, do something with it, but don't give it away. And then what happens, we start complaining, oh, my house is full of stuff. I have too many things. My kids have too many toys, I have so many clouds. I'm sick and tired of all of this. We are essentially complaining about the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us what we need to do is take account of what we really need, and what is it that we should give away to others so that their needs may be fulfilled also. So whenever something is extra, what is it that we need to do instead of storing it for like

00:32:28 --> 00:32:30

five years, 10 years? What should we do?

00:32:31 --> 00:32:54

Give it to others? This is what the prophets of Allah Salam said, a Corona and why Allah Who are they Alok saloon? They're losers, the greatest losers, except for those who give like this and this and this. Because sometimes we think, Well, I just gave something away. Yes, you just give something away. Now again, give something away if it's extra, and again, give something away if it's extra,

00:32:56 --> 00:33:37

and the blessings of giving the blessings of sharing, even if a little, of course it's Allah's promise, that when you are grateful than what will happen, Allah will increase blessings for us. And increase of blessings is not just in the form of having a lot. It's also in the form of having that satisfaction. That contentment. This is true Lena, this is true richness that when a person feels satisfied inside, they're not greedy for more constantly looking. Where can I get more from? How can I get my hands on more stuff? satisfaction, and this is a result of gratitude. And a form of gratitude is giving to others what you have with yourself. I want to share a story with your recent

00:33:37 --> 00:34:18

experience. Just last week, my husband went somewhere and they gave out little bottles of zamzam. Now usually when my husband gets his hands on ZamZam, he loves to bring it home because you know, it's something that everybody likes. So he brought this little bottle of zamzam. I don't know how many ounces it was maybe just maybe five ounces, six, seven ounces. Very, very little amount. So what happened was sitting in our house and a friend of mine came and her son was unwell. So as she was leaving, I gave it to her. I knew that my husband inshallah he wouldn't mind because he would like it. So I gave it to her. Now, when my husband came home, he's like, come on, I thought we were

00:34:18 --> 00:34:41

drinking, you know, when I cried inshallah doesn't matter. Last week, I met somebody who had just returned from Ramallah. And they gave me Zanza. All right. Now I took her to my husband. I'm like, there you go. Drink. Enjoy. Right. And I'm like, You know what, you can drink all of it. It's okay. I don't know what he did with it, but I gave it all to him. What happened?

00:34:42 --> 00:34:54

A friend of mine messaged me. She said, I have something for you. Like, okay, what is it? She said, I'll bring it like okay. I couldn't meet her where I was supposed to meet her. So she gave it to my family.

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

So when I got home, I see a huge can of this

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

Sam Zell

00:35:02 --> 00:35:05

literally, I mean this big alright, this big.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:11

I was shocked how it started with a few ounces

00:35:12 --> 00:35:17

and how much more it became. And now I'm thinking what am I supposed to do with this emza

00:35:19 --> 00:35:26

start giving it away I wanted to bring some for you guys but then everybody will get maybe half a SIP because there isn't much left.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:30

There will be Baraka inshallah I will bring some tomorrow inshallah.

00:35:31 --> 00:35:43

So, anyway, this is just an example, that when we get something from Allah subhanaw taala, instead of warding it and saying that all Muslims and for me this brace that I'm going to wear it, I'm going to keep it

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

think about others also. Think about others also and Allah will amaze you. You're not going to have less if you share what you have with others never ever will you have less and when a person becomes greedy, then there is no limit to that greed

00:36:02 --> 00:36:52

what either but push don't Bartosh them Jabarin what either and when backlash don't use strike bow or Shin bots box is to attack with violence to strike to seize. So when you do see somebody how do you seize them? How do you strike them? How do you fight them but gosh, don't Jabarin you strike as tyrants meaning without showing any mercy. So your level of arrogance has exceeded the limits that when you see someone you do so violently mercilessly and this is because when you do see someone you do so not to discipline but to satisfy your own ego Fatah Hola Hola. Hola. You're only So fear Allah meaning fear his Butch fear that he will seize you while you're only and obey me what taco and fear

00:36:52 --> 00:37:40

Allah the the one who am a duck whom he provided you from the word in that meme dal dal muda muda is to extend something and in that is to reinforce that when someone runs out of some resources, give them more so that they never really run out of it. So fear the one who has provided you with what Bhima tharla Moon with that which you know, in other words, whatever you have, it's quite obvious where did you get it from? Who gave you all of this? Allah gave you all have this and now he makes them count their blessings Amudha calm he has provided you he has reinforced you be anom in with animals grazing livestock, Lebanese and children what Jeanette in and gardens what will union and

springs in the indeed I a half or I lay come I fear for you either by Yeoman or leam the punishment of a terrible day. I fear that the one who gave you all of these blessings, he can also take them back. That when you are so violent with people, the punishment that will fall on you will also be very violent. Kalu they said what was their response? SOA owner Elena, so our own it is same eyeliner on us or whether was the you advised you admonished? Well I in law, while mo Allah admonition instruction. And remember that while is a complete effective advice with warning and encouragement. So this says that it doesn't matter to us, whether you advise us on lung or not the

00:38:30 --> 00:39:09

cone you are Minagawa or lean of those who advise meaning we don't care whether you advise us or you do not advise us. We're not going to listen to you. We're not going to give any heat to what you say. So you might as well save yourself some energy and not say anything to us. In her other they said in not Heather this meaning whatever you're telling us it is INLA nothing except for Hula, hula welline The whole look of the former people, what is her look ha lamb off her look is nature is the singular form of the word o'clock what is a flock? character,

00:39:10 --> 00:39:51

a person's disposition, their manner, their way? So this is the holdup meaning this is the way the character of who of the former people are willing. In other words, what they're saying to him is that oh prophethood whatever you're telling us is something that the people of the past used to talk about. This is how they used to think the ancient people the backward people long time ago. This is what they used to say that Be careful about what you're doing. Worry about your acapella don't just focus on duniya these are, you know, traditions of the ancient people.

00:39:52 --> 00:39:59

Now, with all of this advancement and technology that we have, we know better how important life is

00:40:00 --> 00:40:32

As you know, so many people say this about Islam that Islam, it focuses on afterlife. And this is what they hate about Islam. They say that we're living in the world think about the world. See what satisfies you what pleases you what makes you happy? What brings you pleasure? So focus on that forget about the afterlife. Whereas if you forget about the afterlife, then how is your life going to be? So they said in Heather Hola Hola. Hola willing

00:40:33 --> 00:40:43

woman. They said warmer and not not in a way be more either been at all wants to be punished. Meaning there is no punishment. There is no afterlife

Wilma Cana UK federal meaning but most of them were not to be believers and throw through how to hire six to eight This is mentioned in detail where Allah says what a ma don't for oblique obedience offering idea that as for us, they were destroyed by a screaming violent wind, Which Allah imposed upon them for seven nights and eight days in succession. This is how they were destroyed. And how badly were they destroyed? That you could see the people there in fallen as if there were hollow trunks of palm trees. That all of them were just falling on

00:41:25 --> 00:41:40
