What either and when must sell in Santa Messiah it touched Al Insana, the human being, what touched human being Bullrun hardship, some damage, some deprivation, some kind of distress. And the word book applies to such distress that may be in one's body meaning physical, it may be emotional, mental, it may be concerning one's wealth, financial, it may be in one's circumstances, the situation that he is in any kind of hardship, any kind of adversity. What happens to a person when he is afflicted by difficulty? Da, he calls upon, he did da he made dua, who robber who do his Lord, how does he make dua to his Lord Mooney ban, returning one who returns repeatedly, la he to him Do

00:01:04 --> 00:01:51

only to Allah, and the word Muneeb. From the root letters known Wilda. In Abba, we learned this word earlier. Also, it means to return how repeatedly over and over again, hitting a person just came. But now again, he's going back again, and again, he's going back on the same route is the word no, which is also used for a honeybee. Because what does a honeybee do? It doesn't stay in its high. Correct. It's constantly flying from flower to flower, collecting nectar, or collecting whatever it has to collect. And each time it has something it goes back to the hive, but it doesn't just stay there. So this is money. So minivan, Eli, he constantly, repeatedly he's turning back to Allah. Why?

00:01:52 --> 00:02:38

Because that it doesn't let him stay still, in that door in that hardship, he cannot help but call upon Allah. And he calls upon Allah who repeatedly sitting standing in the morning, in the night while working while eating. Because this is what happens when a person is suffering from distress. When a person is in pain, then this is a chance to turn back to Allah. And when a person has tried everything in order to help himself but nothing works. Then what does he realize? The only hope is in who? Allah subhanaw taala so moneyval la, whether he is alone, or he is sitting amongst people, no matter what's going on, he's calling upon Allah. Why is he calling upon Allah so that the law is

00:02:38 --> 00:03:11

removed, so that the hardship goes away, so that he can receive some blessing from Allah. But then what happens so much than either when Hawala who Hawala, who near Malta Minho? When Allah bestows on him a favor? Hawala, who from the root letters Hall, well, lamb, how well are you how we do the Queen, is to give such a favor

00:03:12 --> 00:03:58

that is given in the control of that person. You see, there's different types of blessings we use, there are some lessons that we use up. And there are other blessings that we use, what's the difference? You got an apple, you eat it, you've used it up, right? But then there is another blessing, like for example, a house, a kitchen. All right, a dish, a pot, a ladle, whatever it is, a dress, a car, these are things that we don't just use up, we use them. You understand? You don't just use a pot once you use it over and over again. You don't just use a car once and you're done with it. Cars are not disposable, although the way things are going you never know everything is

00:03:58 --> 00:04:43

becoming disposable. So how well who how well that means America and America are auto meaning he gave a favor. And then America he also gave ownership as in control of it. So far either Hawala who near Mata Minho that tell me what kind of gifts do we really like things that we just use of once and we're done with them or things that we can actually keep things that we can heat? I mean, a chocolate bar is nice at it as it is it's very nice you enjoy it, but you just enjoy that that moment. Correct. But if it's something else, you know, that's more concrete that such that you can keep that you can use over and over again, you feel more in control. So for my either Hawala walk

00:04:44 --> 00:04:59

near Mata Minh who Ninho from himself, leaning only Allah can give such favors. So Allah gave him the gift, and he also gave him control over it. He also gave Him authority over it power over it.

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

so that he could use it by His Will whenever he wants Hawala who near Mata Minh who,

00:05:08 --> 00:05:33

and near Allah also means that the Buddha was removed because remember, a favor is of two types of blessing is of two types. One is that we get something we want, right? We got something that we want. Like for example, you were sick, you get health, right? You got a car, you got a ride, you got a pen, you got a phone, you got a computer, whatever it is, you want something.

00:05:34 --> 00:06:21

So for example, if you were suffering from extreme headaches for a whole week, and then finally those headaches are gone. Isn't that an aroma? It's a huge neuroma. Right? You were sick with a cold for two weeks for a month. And then finally that episode is over. Isn't that an aroma? It's an aroma. So removal of difficulty is also a Yama. So Thelma either Hawala, who near Mata Minh, who, when Allah this dawns on him a favor from himself, meaning the person could not have acquired it himself. He could never have acquired it himself. It was only Allah spavor on him, that he got that blessing, whether it was a gift, or the removal of some harm. What's the reaction of this person?

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

NESEA he forgot.

00:06:24 --> 00:07:03

What did he forget man, that which can he was meaning previously, ye drew he was calling meaning making dua la vie to it. He forgot that which he was calling upon, or calling for before before what? Before the Nirma? What do I Was he making before this blessing, he was making dua for the removal of hardship. He was making dua, to receive some good from Allah. Now once he receives his benefits from Allah, what does he do? He forgets the fact that he was even making dua to Allah.

00:07:05 --> 00:07:16

He goes on enjoying his blessings. He's so engrossed into them, that he even forgets that a week ago, he was making dua to Allah desperately.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:40

Now, a whole day goes by and he doesn't even remember ALLAH, whereas just a week ago, what was he doing sitting, standing, lying down whenever he got a moment he was making God to Allah Nessie Americana Theodorou in a union Kabul and McKenna Jada Rue It can also refer to Allah, meaning he forgot the one meaning the one whom he was making dua to before.

00:07:41 --> 00:08:38

What gyla. And instead, what's worse is that he made Lilla he for Allah and Dadon equals rivals, and that is the plural of the word mid, what is needed a partner and equal meaning someone who is equal to another in some attribute, someone who is equal to another in some attribute. Right? So what John Illa he and dad and he sets up rivals for Allah. Now who is the one who gives blessings who is Al Marcin, Elmer Oakley, and what have Alma Nan, who is it a bizarre? It is Allah subhanahu avana correct. So when he makes a dad for Allah, what is this shit referring to? That he instead of realizing that the blessing has come from Allah, he thinks, the means, whether it is in the form of

00:08:38 --> 00:09:02

a person or some business or some medication, or whatever it was, that helped him come out of that trouble, he thinks that that was the source of relief, whereas that person or that medication or whatever it was, it was just a means sent by who? Allah subhanaw taala so what journal Allah He and gather he sets up rivals to Allah.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:05

Lille Billa.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:19

As a results, he leads a stray Leoben Allah Lao over here is alfalfa, aka means as a consequence, as a result, he as a result of this

00:09:21 --> 00:09:43

action of his that in the stress, he called upon Allah, once he got what he wanted, he forgot about Allah, and instead he's thanking others, he's giving credit to everyone else, but Allah, then by this action, what is he doing? You will, he is misleading other people, unswervingly he from his way from who's way from the way of Allah.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:59

Because you see, typically what happens when a person is in some distress, regardless of how religious or non religious they are. Eventually there comes a point where they call upon God, right? When they see that somebody is

00:10:00 --> 00:10:19

You know, they are not religious and they're perfectly fine and they have whatever they want, then looking at this person, what do they think it's not necessary to make dua it's not necessary to call upon God. So by this action of indifference to Allah subhanaw taala What is he doing? He's promoting the culture of ignoring God,

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

heal when long, severely old say, say to this person Tamata because Africa kalila enjoy in your disbelief hollyland A little, enjoy your disbelief. How long for a little while, a Leland over here means little as an in time and enjoyment, that is little also the quantity the quality of that enjoyment is also brief. It is little compared to the enjoyment of the hereafter. In come in us having now a severe warning is given at the end Indeed, you are from the Companions of the Fire. This is a threat for such an ungrateful person Surah Zuma from the beginning? What is it that we have been seeing in the Surah? The theme of if last, making ourselves sincere for Allah subhanaw

00:11:10 --> 00:11:58

taala. And here in this eye on the following verses, we see more examples of Islamist meaning how is it that we can develop sincerity for Allah subhanaw taala. In particular, what's mentioned in this ayah is a certain character, which unfortunately, is very common, very, very common, this behavior is very common in people. And what is this, that in normal circumstances? What is the attitude of many people that whatever blessings they have, they complain about them? Because you see in the previous aisle what was mentioned in gratitude, if you're grateful yoga, hula COMM And if you're ungrateful, Allah does not like it for you. Because the sad reality is that majority of the times

00:11:58 --> 00:12:00

people complain about the blessings they have.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:10

And then at times of need, what do they do? They pray to Allah. They call upon Allah, they seek Allah's help.

00:12:11 --> 00:13:06

And how is it that they call upon Allah Mooney been Na, and in Alba also gives the meaning of a class of sincerity because constantly going back to Allah alone, him alone. So at that time, they don't associate any partners with Allah. Rather they implore upon Allah constantly, so that their hardship is removed and the trial is taken away, because nothing else worked. Right? So then he ends up calling upon Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the purpose of hardship. This is the purpose of difficulty of why does Allah subhanaw taala afflict difficulty upon us, so that we turn to him so that we call upon Allah. But the problem over here is that once this person's need is met, once he

00:13:06 --> 00:13:16

gets what he wants, then he forgets Allah, and this is problematic that a person remembers Allah only when he wants something,

00:13:17 --> 00:13:20

only when he is an extreme trouble.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:56

Now, this doesn't mean that if we are in difficulty, we say, or I can make dua, because in good times I don't make dua. So why should I make dua right now? No, Allah has put us in difficulty so that we turned back to him and I learn a lesson and don't forget him once you get your needs fulfilled, into what you desire number 12. This is mentioned what either must sell inside of the room Garner lead gen V O, R e n, o r ima. When some difficulty afflicts man, he calls upon us on his side meeting when lying down when sitting, and when standing. Good.

00:13:57 --> 00:14:13

Very good. What the problem is when America chef NanHu, beloved, maraca Ylang Yaga Runa in our building Messiah, when we remove the hardship for him, he goes on, as if he never made the call to Allah.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:16

You see, even as people

00:14:17 --> 00:14:23

who is it that we consider to be our friend, someone who just call this one there in somebody?

00:14:25 --> 00:14:59

Who is it that we consider our friends, people who connect with us on a regular basis, not just when they want something from us, isn't it and if there are people who generally don't care about you, but every time they're in some trouble, then they give you a call, not just once but five times and they send you a message, not just the text message, but also what's happened. If there is any other thing that you have. They try to reach you through every possible means sending you messages through others also. And then as soon as you've helped them, then it's as if you don't exist for them anymore.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01

How does that feel?

00:15:02 --> 00:15:11

How does that feel just as a human being? Would you consider this person to be a friend or just somebody who uses you? As somebody who uses you, isn't it?

00:15:12 --> 00:15:20

And it's sad, even human beings don't deserve such behavior is that we say, I don't deserve this kind of treatment from this person.

00:15:21 --> 00:16:13

If we don't like it for ourselves, we think we deserve better. What Allah and methylone are allowed, what does Allah deserve from us? What does Allah deserve from us when everything we have is from him? This is unfair, this is really unfair. So over here, we are being reminded that look, what is it that you call upon Allah only? Because this kind of attitude, what does it promote? It promotes a culture of ingratitude to Allah subhanaw taala pray only when you want something otherwise, forget about him. Lille Bill Lang severely. This is a means of going astray and also leading other people astray. A man on contrast, in contrast, Allah subhanaw taala mentions another example I'm or man who

00:16:13 --> 00:16:48

who are he is on the throne devoutly obedient and it's Han it is from connotes one who observes Knuth and what is called constant obedience with humility, not just in times of distress and difficulty but also in good times as a man who are on eatin What do you think about the one who is devoutly obedient when Anna Elaine Anna, floral of the word in your

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

in your time period.

00:16:52 --> 00:17:29

So Anna time periods, and it's you can translate this as hours but don't think of it as literally 60 minutes an hour right? A period of time and a lane during hours of the night? When is he obedient to Allah? At what time in the hours of the night meeting in night? When people are asleep and what is he doing saggi then one who is prostrating or Ka Eman and one who is standing? What is it that we do such The MTM?

00:17:30 --> 00:18:14

In what in Salah feeding in the night this person is performing the prayer? Why? Yes. The rule? Is there any prayer that is legislated for that time? No. mean there's a shower prayer and then after that there's a time period when there's no obligatory prayer. The next one is budget. But during the night, there is no prescribed prayer. What is he praying then? Nothing the headship, my prayer. And what's the purpose? Is it to put a checkmark okay, I've done my Asia. I've done my budget. I've done Malzahar. So, because this is how we pray most of the time, right? We're praying because we have to pray our five daily prayers. This person is praying the night prayer, yes, that will.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:36

Because he is afraid of the hereafter. He is afraid, cautious, find to protect himself because hidden is such fear that leads you to take some kind of precautionary measures. It's not fear that causes you to freeze. It's fear that makes you take cover.

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

So yes,

00:18:39 --> 00:19:33

he is praying here because he's afraid of the hereafter. Well, would you and he hopes for his hoping for Martha be the mercy of his Lord yo Jew from the word of a job. So he's praying out of fear of the Hereafter, the difficulties and the punishment of the Hereafter, and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, which mercy when in this world and in the next world? What's the Lama referring to so that the Buddha is removed from him? He's making dua to Allah in the night. He's praying to Allah in the night hoping for Rama, so that his difficulties in this world are removed and also he gets reward in the hereafter. Allah says cool, say * is yester we he is equal. Are they equal? Who Alladhina

00:19:33 --> 00:19:59

Jana moon, those people who have those who know when Lavina and those who lie animo, they do not know. Are they the same? People who know and people who don't know? Are they equal? No, they're not equal, because look at the difference in their action. One is a person who is ignorant of his Lord ignorant of the hereafter. He calls upon Allah just for some worldly way.

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

Reasons and as soon as he has his dunya fixed he forgets about Allah and the other is the one who was calling upon Allah for a greater reason not just for dunya reasons but also the hereafter

00:20:13 --> 00:20:58

will * yes that will Lavina Jana Munna will Ledeen Allah Allah moon in Amma, indeed only yet other Kuru he takes heed who all will and bad people are the intellect people of understanding. They're the ones who really take a lesson. Now we see over here, this person is also afflicted with some hardship, because this is a continuation of the previous idea, right? So what either muscle Insano balloon, when difficulty hits man, one reaction is that he only makes dua to Allah at that time, and then later on, he forgets, and the other attitude is mentioned in this ayah. Number nine, that the hardship walk this person up. So what did he do? He knelt before his Lord, he was kneeling

00:20:58 --> 00:21:04

before Allah, but he knew that the hardship of the Hereafter is much more severe.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:38

The hardship of this dunya it woke him up, because he see, we're human beings, we need some push, we need some incentive, we need some, you know, a pinch or something to move us. Otherwise, I mean, if everything is good, it would be very difficult to wake up in the middle of the night and make dua to Allah, isn't it? Why do you have a whole lot of exams coming up? Right? Or when you have some financial crisis or some health issues or family problems, whatever it is, it doesn't let you sleep, isn't it?

00:21:39 --> 00:22:18

It makes you wake up in the middle of the night. But then when you wake up in the middle of the night, and you are asking Allah subhanaw taala for relief, the person who has knowledge he realizes that the troubles of the Hereafter are far greater. Here I am crying about the pain that I feel in my body. Imagine the pain and hellfire. So then a person thinks of the greater distress of the hereafter. So then he doesn't just say I've been acting dunya Hasina. But he also says, what Phil Rocky has been working on ever now. Do you see over here the Buddha became a means for him to wake up and draw closer to Allah.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:27

You understand? He didn't forget Allah after his needs were met. Know.

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

He really found closeness to Allah through this difficulty. And notice over here, yeah, the whole Hirata way here, would you Rama therapy.

00:22:41 --> 00:22:48

When he's praying to Allah, what's the objective? There is a combination of fear and hope.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:02

Yeah, that will fear. Y'all do rock mythology, hope there is a combination of fear and hope. And then who is mentioned, those who have knowledge. So people have knowledge.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

They combine hope with fear.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:19

The person who has combines hope with fear and it's the way of the ignorant to only dwell upon fear or only dwell in hope.

00:23:20 --> 00:24:08

Because the Quran is very balanced, isn't it very balanced, where punishment is mentioned, reward is also mentioned, where the don'ts are mentioned the do's are also mentioned where the conditions are mentioned the the aloud matters are also mentioned. So the Quran creates a balanced personality. So with true knowledge, a person is able to combine hope with fear. We see in a hadith the Prophet sallallahu sallam, once he entered upon a young man who was at the verge of dying, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him How do you feel? And the man said, I have hope in Allah. Well, Messenger of Allah, but I also fear my sins. I have hope in Allah. But at the same time, I'm afraid of my

00:24:08 --> 00:24:36

sins. And the prophets of Allah Selim said these two things meaning hope and fear, do not coexist in the heart of a person in a situation like this, except that Allah will give him that which he hopes for, and keeps him safe from that which he fears. Meaning if at this time, at the verge of dying, if you have hope and fear in your heart, then what will happen Allah will give you what you're hopeful for, and He will protect you from what you are afraid of.

00:24:38 --> 00:24:49

So this beautiful combination has to be there hope and fear. Why hope because why not? Why not have open Allah? Is there any sin that is difficult for Allah to forgive?

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51

None at all.

00:24:52 --> 00:25:00

Allah's forgiveness is always greater than our sins. Isn't it's, it's always always greater than

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

ours is Allah subhanaw taala His name is the love, so why not have hope in Allah? And with regards to our difficulties in life again, why not have open Allah? Because if every night, think about it every night, once the time is over Allah subhanaw taala brings the day after every winter spring comes, then why not in our life when there's a chapter of hardship? Allah subhanaw taala can definitely bring a chapter of, of good faith is it's possible for him. So hope and why fear? Why fear Allah subhanaw taala because definitely even the smallest of sin

00:25:42 --> 00:25:47

is a serious sin. Why? Because it's committed against who Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:49 --> 00:25:58

So, yo do Rama therapy, both of them need to be combined fear and hope. We will listen to the recitation well either muscle

00:26:02 --> 00:26:05

down Ben Mooney been in a

00:26:08 --> 00:26:08
