Now, if you think about it, when you do something once, when you do something the first time that you know, think about when you were little, and the first time maybe that you felt you were doing something wrong. You know, there's that fear that No, I cannot do this, I should not do this. And some people, what happens is that they stop right there. But other people they justify, they insist, so the first time that they do something wrong, it is scary. But then when they do it again and again and again, it becomes their nature. So the ceiling of the heart is the result of perpetual denial. Like for example, a Buddha had was he offered guidance once or twice, no many times he saw

00:00:43 --> 00:01:27

the prophets of Allah who already have sent him for many years the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was in Mecca for 13 years as a prophet 13 years, Abuja heard the Quran, he saw the prophets of Allah who already said, I'm praying salah, but yet he refused. So when he refused again and again and again, what happened, eventually his heart was sealed. Eventually the heart was sealed. And this is not injustice to people. This is the result of their own wrongdoing. You know, for example, when you learn to block out certain sounds, there comes a point where you don't even notice them anymore. Right? Like, for example, if children are so used to ignoring their parents, there comes a point

00:01:27 --> 00:02:10

that they don't even hear their parents anymore. If a person is using bad words, the first few times very difficult. And then eventually, it's nature, no problem. And a person can use bad words, many crimes, especially when it comes to robbery. The studies show that it's a chronic problem, people don't just steal once it happens again and again and again. And even when they get caught, and the serve jail term. What happens is when they come out, again, they fall into the same pattern. We learn about omega and Honnef, when he heard the recitation of Surah najem. And right at the end of Surah, najem, where people are told first Judoon Allah He wants to do so make such that to Allah,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:51

you know, Prostrate yourselves before Allah and worship Allah can eat the recitation was so powerful that everyone fell into such though it was like an automatic, a natural response to the recitation of the surah even the people who did not believe fell into such though, but you know, what happened to omega bahala he refused to make such the over there also, he did not want to do with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was doing so he picked up a handful of dust and he put it on his forehead. This is, you know, I am compelled to do something, but I will not put my head down the way that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam does, he need this is what this is stubbornness on his own

00:02:51 --> 00:03:45

part. So in Surah, two stuff is number five Allah subhanaw taala says fella Mozelle, who, as Zaha Allahu kulula home that when they deviated Allah caused their hearts to be deviated. Allah did not force them to become deviated. No, they chose that for themselves. They chose that and Allah let them go in that direction. falam Mozelle Oiselle Allahu Kaluga, who in Surah Al Anon i 110 We learn one who can leave who have either Tahoma or Busara. Whom can I love, you mean will be a wala mudra that we shall turn their hearts and their vision, any away from the truth away from believing why? Because they did not believe in it the first time they rejected they refused. So now what's going to

00:03:45 --> 00:04:28

happen? They're never going to be able to believe. And sometimes you know what, maybe you have experienced this that if you have refused something once later on, even when you know it's good for you, or even if you know it's worth trying, you feel kind of you know, there is a bit of arrogance over there in changing your opinion. So, it happens with people that because they refuse once they are not able to change their mind or change their opinion their position on something because they're too arrogant. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from such arrogance. In a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when a person commits a sin, then there is

00:04:28 --> 00:04:59

a dot that appears on the heart. If a person repents, if a person makes doba seeks forgiveness from Allah leaves that sin, then what happens? That dot that Mark is removed. But if he insists on that sin and continues to sin more than what will happen, that mark will increase it will spread until the entire heart is covered in supermoto. 15 or 14. Allah subhanaw taala tells us color bell

00:05:00 --> 00:05:51

Ronna Isla columbium there is rust upon their hearts. You know their hearts are covered in rust. Why? Matt can we see Boone what they have been earning? Meaning what they have been earning, has stained their hearts, it has rusted their hearts, it has covered over their hearts. So this is not that Allah subhanaw taala does not want these people to be guided. So this is injustice, no a StuffIt Allah, Allah is not unjust to his slaves. Remember this rule? Allah is not unfair to his slaves. Remember Instituto Fatiha Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen Absolute ultimate praise is for Allah, Allah is deserving of it, Allah is worthy of it. Why? Because all of his actions are between

00:05:51 --> 00:06:13

his justice and his favor, His justice in his favor. Allah does not do any injustice. So this is not the you know, these people are victims. No way they brought themselves to this place. And also remember, Allah has a right to punish people Lahoma a Janome

00:06:15 --> 00:06:59

Hola, hola. Inanna Luca la raffia. You see if a person is so arrogant, that he refuses to believe in Allah refuses to believe in Allah's book refuses to believe in Allah as messengers, then Allah has a right to be angry with that person. And Allah has a right to punish that person. Who are we to say that this is unfair? Who are we to say that these people should not be treated like this? Honey, think about it. If someone does not give you what you deserve, what would you do if you had the choice? If you had the choice, you would take revenge, you would give some form of punishment. We're talking about Allah's right over here. And Allah's right is the greatest. So as a punishment for

00:06:59 --> 00:07:50

these people in this world, what happens? Their hearts are sealed. Their hearing is sealed on their eyes is a covering in the Quran in surah Nisa, I in number 155 We learn for the man luckily him Meetha home. What Cuffley him BIA Atilla he will cut Lee he will Ambia a be lady helping. What Colleen Kulu buena Han by taba Allah Allahu alayhi Kufri him Fela you Mina Illa kalila What is this Iommi? It means that it is because of their breaking their covenant that they made with Allah. And it is because of their disbelieving in the verses of Allah and because of their criminal actions, what criminal actions, they're killing the prophets without any right and they're saying that our

00:07:50 --> 00:08:37

hearts are covered. Rather the fact is, the Lebar Allah Who are they have become free him, Allah has set a seal upon their hearts because of their disbelief because of their disbelief. So this is a punishment. This is the immediate punishment in the world, that such people are deprived of ever believing. Such people are deprived of ever believing, no matter what great signs are presented to them, no matter what clear proofs are given to them, no matter how beautifully someone invites them, no matter how strongly someone warns them, nothing benefits them. And this is their immediate punishment in the world. And the punishment that is coming later, is what Wella humara thou buena

00:08:37 --> 00:09:34

It's a tremendous punishment, and this punishment is the punishment of hellfire. This punishment is the punishment of being far removed from Allah receiving the anger of Al Jabbar. What am I that one Earlene. So, we don't know who these individuals are.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:59

When we come across a person who does not believe we should have hope. And we should try our best to invite them to the truth, to offer guidance to them to share the truth with them. The result is known to Allah, we are not to pass judgment. But Allah knows from before whether these people are going to believe or not, and that knowledge is with Allah alone. Now let's listen to the recitation of these verse.

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

This and then we will reflect upon them

00:10:03 --> 00:10:06

in the lady in a kefalos

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

Oh gnarly him.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

Did you mean Oh,

00:10:17 --> 00:10:21

hi, Gemma Long, who will be more or less and

00:10:23 --> 00:10:23


00:10:26 --> 00:10:27

Saudi Malaysia

00:10:30 --> 00:11:18

will know the name. So Allah has revealed the Quran for guidance. It offers guidance to all people. But there are people who refuse to benefit from the Quran. So you don't follow their footsteps, you follow the people who are Alladhina and around thoroughly him the most 13 who become the muffler honed, and what we can learn from these verses, there's many lessons and I want to hear from you as well. You can type in the comments, you know, even though these verses are talking about a livina cathedral, there are things that we need to reflect upon. We need to introspect, basically, because we see from these verses that since harden the heart, and arrogance can make a person extremely

00:11:18 --> 00:12:13

stubborn. Arrogance can lead a person to deny the truth, to reject what is very obvious. And then a person is only fooling himself that a person is literally in his own head. So anything that we see we are doing wrong, we need to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala for that, realize the sin and don't justify it. Don't insist upon it. Because philam Mozelle, Who is Allah Allahu Calobra home when a person, you know chooses deviation than that is the path that they're allowed to go on. So don't choose that for yourself. And this also shows us that repeated exposure to sin, repeated exposure to sin is something that causes desensitization that a person does not even realize that

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

they're doing something wrong. Like for example, here, this person is literally in his own head between his heart and his ears, right? doesn't benefit from what he learned previously, and does not benefit from what is offered to him now. So imagine such desensitization that a person fails to benefit from what they see, you need there should be intellectual humility, that realization that I'm not always right, I could be wrong, that realization that I need to learn I do not know everything, that realization that I need to improve because I am not perfect. And ultimately, these verses show us that guidance is in the hands of Allah. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for

00:13:00 --> 00:13:43

guidance. Again, Dino slaughtered was the team, realize the importance of this draw. This draw is very powerful, always relevant, extremely important. No matter who we are, no matter what we are doing. No matter where we stand, we are in need of guidance from Allah subhanaw taala, I can see some beautiful sections that some of you are typing. One is if we don't ask for forgiveness, our sins can block our Heart to YES, and this is why it's so important that especially now in the month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness. This is also one of the two hours that we should be making throughout the day, you know, stuff that allow a tubal delay, you notice to be held

00:13:43 --> 00:14:22

in the morning, Subhan Allah, He will be handy because when a person says that 100 times in the morning in the evening, then their sins are removed, even if their sins are equal to the form of the See, sometimes we don't change aspects of ourselves because we are arrogant about accepting an aspect of shadow. Yeah, that also happens that sometimes we see that, you know, I need to change something in my life. I need to change this in the way that I earn money in the way that I interact with people. But there's arrogance, yes. Even Nobody said that changing is easy. doing things differently is going to be easy. It is going to be hard. It is difficult. And that is why the reward

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

is so great. And this is why we ask Allah subhanaw taala for help. We should also be grateful for the blessing of Islam. Islam is a blessing. Eman is a blessing. It is not a burden. It is a gift that it's a privilege by which a person will be saved. Remember we discussed earlier that Eman is not something that you know we just believe in as a concept. It's not just something cognitive. Alright Eman includes actions. And you know for example, Salah this is part of Eman, you know keyamo Lail is part of iman recitation of the

00:15:00 --> 00:15:43

Quran is part of iman. So sometimes we think that these things are a burden. And when it comes to praying in the night we do it, you know with laziness. When it comes to the recitation of the Quran, we do it half heartedly as if you know, somebody's punishing us. This is a blessing, a privilege, a gift that Allah subhanaw taala has given you that realization that it's the month of Ramadan, that realization that every day every night is a blessing is a gift, the ability to read Quran or listen to the Quran, having that eagerness to spend time with the Quran, these are gifts, these are privileges that we should not take for granted. We should thank Allah subhanaw taala for on a

00:15:43 --> 00:16:05

regular basis. And we also I'm just reading your reflections, humble yourself and seek forgiveness. Our eyes and hearing are our windows of learning. Exactly. And this shows us that when we want to learn something, we must listen and we must observe, listen to the verses and observe the signs and never belittle a sin.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:50

Yes, that the action of a person comes before the punishment that Allah gives. Allah is not unjust to his slaves. Excellent. Exactly. That if a person is upon Islam, then this doesn't mean that there's something special about you. This is Allah subhanaw taala disfavor on you because he Daya Tofik is from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah subhanaw taala knows the condition of our hearts. Yes, just because a person does not have full knowledge of a subject matter doesn't mean that it's not the truth just because they don't know everything about it doesn't mean that it's not the truth, we should have intellectual humility, making dua for guidance. You can also post any questions that you

00:16:50 --> 00:17:35

have, can we make dua for those who are arrogant to turn towards Allah? Absolutely, we should. Remember I mentioned this at the beginning of the deceit of these verses, even though the verse appears to be general in meaning its application is specific, meaning only Allah knows who this verse applies to. We cannot say about any living person who disbelieved that his heart is sealed. We don't have that knowledge, we don't have that authority to make that judgment. Only Allah subhanaw taala knows. So when someone does not believe when someone is, you know, for example, behaving very arrogantly, you know, you're talking to them in a very nice way and they're rejecting constantly

00:17:35 --> 00:18:20

any, it doesn't mean that you dismiss them and you cancel them. No, we don't cancel people like this. We don't have that authority, we will always make dua for them, and we will try our best to present the truth to them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life is the perfect example for us. You see, a Luciferian disbelieved for so many years, but then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he accepted a Luciferians conversion to Islam. Right. So we are no one to pass judgment on people. This is Allah subhanaw taala is knowledge. Why are we being told about this? I mentioned several reasons at the beginning, that this is reassurance. And this is a message to us

00:18:20 --> 00:18:52

that we don't have the power to guide people. This is, you know, a reassurance that the problem is not with the truth. The problem is with the individuals who reject it. So you should make dua for people the question, can we let them go astray? Any can we be okay with their choice? No, we're not we have to feel something we have to desire, we have to want guidance for them. But then when they refuse it over and over, then realize that the problem is not with you or with the truth. That's the choice that they're making.

00:18:53 --> 00:19:44

We are all in need of guidance. Yes, what we see and hear affects our heart excellent reflection, that if the hearing is sealed and the eyes are covered, that means a guidance is not entering. Which means that in general, eyes are not covered. Ears are not sealed, which means that through them, whatever reaches the heart impacts the heart. So we have to be careful about what we look at and what we listen to. How can we ask for guidance for other people? It could be our own family, our children? Yes, we make to offer them simple words. Oh Allah guide so and so. We learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made the offer for a person loved my the caliber who or Allah guide

00:19:44 --> 00:19:48

his heart. So you can also make dua like that.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:59

We learned in her these that take one step towards Allah, Allah will take 10 steps towards you. Right? But you have to take that first step and if a person refuses to take

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

that step, then it's not going to be forced on them. Should we keep warning and reminding even if people refuse? Yes, you keep reminding. What you can do is you can take a break for some time, like the prophets Allah who earlier said it was told in the Quran, you know that a halal caffeine, um, he'll homebrew wider that give them some time and then come back again. But that does not mean that you give up on people. There is a difference between giving up on people and giving space to people. Giving space is necessary so that people don't get annoyed and they don't get overwhelmed. And they get time to think and reflect giving up is different giving up is that you just cancel people and

00:20:45 --> 00:21:27

you say no hope. You don't have the right to decide that for people. That is Allah subhanaw taala has a knowledge and his decision. Yes, we should make dua to Allah that he or Allah give me a sound heart that give me a heart that believes protect my heart from getting sealed. You know the DUA Allahumma tyranny that Allah allow me to benefit from my hearing and my vision. Allah humara Fini if he Bettany Allahu Mirage, and if he summary a lot more often if you bust somebody in the morning in the evening, we make this thorough, but this is not just about you know the physical eyes and ears, but also the capacity to learn through them. Very good, Masha, Allah, some of the reflections are

00:21:27 --> 00:21:43

really beautiful. Another reflection is being honest with oneself regarding faults and sins. Yes, this is important and having that humility that I could be wrong. And I can learn and I should learn that I should not be stuck in my own head.

00:21:44 --> 00:22:30

All right, think before doing anything, any action. The question, does our lien refer to both quantity and quality? Yes, because this punishment is great in terms of quality, because it's the punishment of * Jahannam, which is very different from the fire of this world. And it is our Leme it is tremendous. It is great because it's continuous, it's eternal. It's not going to stop, it's not going to end. Allahu Akash Yes, you can only offer warning and guidance, in the sense of knowledge and information, don't feel comes from Allah subhanaw taala Yes, Allah knows what is in the heart of a person. Our job is to convey our job is to warn our job is to make Daraa

00:22:31 --> 00:23:23

can a heart that is dead be revived? Beautiful question. In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the land which is dead. And it comes to life when there is rain on it. So some people their hearts are dead, not because they're evil nature, not because, you know, they deliberately do wrong. It could be because they don't know. They don't reject, they just don't know they're unaware. So yes, when the rain of guidance of Quran of the truth of knowledge that falls upon such a heart that heart comes to life. And there are so many beautiful examples of people who are like that, and perhaps you will also experience this in your own life. That you know, for example, total Fatiha,

00:23:23 --> 00:23:52

you recited it before, but it probably was not of much meaning to you. But now when you recite it, it's different. Right? You have a different feeling. So yes, a dead heart can be revived. Allah subhanaw taala is able to do that in Allah, Allah cliche in Cadiz, but that power is with Allah. Our job is to be hopeful is to make dua and our job is to try the results are with Allah.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:38

Yes, beautiful point that Allah is still merciful to these people by not mentioning their names. Yes, any. Their names are not mentioned in the Quran. There are people whose names are mentioned, like, you know, fit our own, our own, et cetera. But here their names are not mentioned, because this is a way of preserving their dignity when it comes to Abu Lahab. However, you know, his title is mentioned his wife is mentioned. So yes, both are there is a dire Tofik part of fitrah. Any given to everyone. Yes and No Yes, in the sense that everyone has the potential. Okay, Allah subhanaw taala has created everyone with the potential or that natural disposition that they should worship

00:24:38 --> 00:24:59

Allah. Allah subhanaw taala has offered guidance, Allah subhanaw taala has created signs in the universe. But then everyone does not get the Tofik to accept it and to live it. And that's not because Allah is being unfair to them. That's because they themselves are refusing guidance, or they themselves are doing things well.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:18

which prevent them from following guidance. And this shows us that sins become a barrier between us and guidance. Arrogance is a barrier, right? Sins are a barrier. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for humility, and we should also ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness.

00:25:19 --> 00:25:53

Okay realize accept the truth before it is taken away. Yes, this is also very important. You know, opportunities don't stay forever, right? So when Allah subhanaw taala presents a good opportunity to us gives us the ability to recognize something good, then we should accept it. Or we should be eager for it because it can be taken away. What should a person do if they feel their Eman is low that they're struggling? How do we connect to Allah in that situation?

00:25:54 --> 00:26:39

You see, in the previous verses we learned about salah those people who establish Salah such people are conscious of Allah, right? Such people safeguard themselves. So focus on your Salah. And remember, when it comes to establishing salah, we spoke about establishing it externally and internally. So when you're praying, make fresh will do make sure that you're dressed properly, make sure that there is no distractions. And make sure that when you're praying, you're praying without making any extra movements. You pay attention to what you were reading what you were saying. And you will notice a difference in Shalva. So Amen. Yes, it increases and decreases. How does it increase

00:26:39 --> 00:26:48

when a person does good deeds when a person has positive thoughts about Allah? Right, and how does Eman decrease with the opposite?

00:26:49 --> 00:27:36

What are the best actions needs to open the heart and gain the light of guidance, actions of iman? Because Allah subhanaw taala tells us that those people who follow guidance Allah subhanaw taala increases them in guidance when Medina todo czar the home Houda Allah increases them in guidance. So what does that mean? That if we want to increase in guidance, if we want our hearts to be filled with Eman to increase in the light of iman, then we have to do the actions of EMA. They are deeply related. And they're proportional. There's a positive correlation here that if one increases the other will increase. The two signs revealed signs and the created signs revealed signs are the

00:27:36 --> 00:28:21

verses of the Quran, the revelation and created signs the things that Allah subhanaw taala has created, that he makes us observe experience witness here so that we can recognize his oneness. Yes, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for all three levels of hearing. So when you say a love more often if he lived any alone more often if he summary in the morning, you know, keep that in your mind. Okay, I can see some questions about you know, people doing, you know, major sins while they're Muslim. So remember that, you know, the word covered has been used over here and Latina cathedral, and remember that there are levels of comfort. Okay, there is major Kofa which is

00:28:21 --> 00:29:02

something that you know, expels a person from the fold of Islam that means that they're not Muslim. So for example, if a person says I don't believe in God, I don't believe in the Quran, StuffIt Allah, any they're not Muslim. This is the kind of Kufa that the ayah is talking about. All right, and then there are actions of minor Cowfish meaning they are actions that eventually lead to comfort or they resemble Cofer. Okay, like, for example, committing a major sin certain major sins. You know, in Hadith, we learn that when a person commits those sins, then he's not a believer. It doesn't mean that he is not a believer at all. It just means that at the moment, a man leaves his

00:29:02 --> 00:29:27

heart or the perfection of a man who's being negated. And inshallah we'll talk about this levels of Eman levels of cover. But remember that, you know, one lesson we can learn from this is that Be careful about generalizing verses. Okay? Sometimes the verses of the Quran do give us general meaning their application is general, but sometimes it's specific. So be careful about this matter.

00:29:28 --> 00:29:46

All right, very good. How can we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance for the health of our hearts, there's many doors that we can make. We can ask Allah subhanaw taala in our own words, and also if you open up any book of most known doors, you will find the laws for the soundness of the heart.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:59

Okay, yes, do not use this AI as an excuse to not help those who are misguided or to simply pass judgment on them or to feel arrogant. Yes, yeah. Mocha liberal glooby sub Bitcoin

00:30:00 --> 00:30:40

be allowed in it very good. This is a draw that we can make. Okay, this question is coming up again and again, why do people always try to change Islam for their benefits? Is it to make them feel better? I mean, each person knows why they're doing well, we don't assume that we know the condition of people's hearts. Sometimes people try to change Islam out of ignorance. They don't know what real Islam is. Sometimes there is a fear that is driving them sometimes there is, you know, assumption that is driving them. So when you see, you know, things like that, again, refrain from judgment, hope for the guidance, pray for them. Somebody has written we need to try to be our best as Muslims

00:30:40 --> 00:31:00

for this reason. So people around us are touched by the good we do, and then make dua for them as well. Exactly. There's different ways of telling people about Islam. You can tell them directly, you can communicate Islam to them through your actions. All of this is important and we can see that in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:48

Okay, again, the question is here that if their hearts are sealed, how will they be guided? Exactly, this is, like I mentioned, this is punishment for them, right? Or this is what they have chosen for themselves. Allah is not being unfair to them. They were not created this way. This punishment came after their action, and Allah has the right to punish them. And Allah knows who is worthy of this. So instead of thinking about, you know, this is unfair, we should be thinking about what can I do? Because this verse does not exempt us from our responsibility to convey the truth to people. When this idea was revealed the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did not stop preaching. No, he continued

00:31:48 --> 00:32:31

to do that this idea is a reassurance that the problem is not with the truth. The problem was with the people who choose to disbelieve, so I can understand a lot of people when they read this verse, they're just stuck on. This is not fair to them. That's not the point of this idea. And we are not in a position to judge Allah subhanaw taala as actions that is fair, or is this unfair, we are not of that position. And even if we were to comment like this, that this is fair, or this is not fair, it's not going to make a difference because Allah is stating a reality over here to us. So we need to focus on what we are supposed to do. We are supposed to realize the gift of Islam, we are

00:32:31 --> 00:33:11

supposed to realize that the problem is not with the Quran. The problem is not with the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conveyed, right. And my job is to convey the truth to people in whatever way that I can. And to hope for guidance, right, and to pray for their guidance. And Alhamdulillah the month of Ramadan is an excellent opportunity to connect with people to you know, share with them, you know, your journey of fasting, you know, the way that you practice, you know, different things in the month of Ramadan. You know, for example, if you take some, you know, food over, I understand it in this time, it's a bit challenging, but some packaged food, you know, sealed

00:33:11 --> 00:33:52

food, if you take that, you know, to your neighbors, at least, you know, you are introducing them to the concept of Ramadan, slowly, gradually, step by step. And you never know, you never know there's so many people who find out about Islam by coming across Muslims who are fasting, and that eventually leads them to accepting Islam. I remember there was a lady who used to come to my class, she was not a Muslim, but she started coming. And when it was the month of Ramadan, she started fasting and then one of her friends told her that there's you're not going to get the reward for fasting over here because you're not a Muslim. She was a close friend. So she could say that and you

00:33:52 --> 00:34:36

know, eventually she accepted Islam. So our job is not to pass judgment on this idea or on people it is to you know, learn the message that we are being given. Inshallah, all right at home that Allah beautiful reflections. Was this ayah revealed in Makkah, no, this is a Madani Surah All right. So, this was revealed after the Hijrah. And this is why, in that have said I mentioned that. You know even our basketball de la Mourinho said that this was revealed about the Jewish leaders they used to live in Medina, other said that this was revealed about the leaders and Maccha right, because the Muslims had dealt with them. So this was revealed later. When you have people in your family, for

00:34:36 --> 00:35:00

example, who refuse to pray or you know, fast, etcetera. Again, don't pass judgment. Don't cancel people. Pray for them. Keep reminding them and believe your job is that you believe that this is the truth that you don't have any doubt about it. No matter how much people deny, no matter how much people refuse. You believe that this is good.

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

If you believe that this is beneficial, and this is true, you know, for example, when it comes to fasting, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Whoever fasts with faith and expectation of reward, right? What does it mean by fasting with faith, fasting while believing that this is the right thing to do, that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do this. I am doing this in obedience to Allah, believing that fasting is good, that it's a virtuous deed. Right? So Whoever fasts like this, whoever prays in the nights of Ramadan like this, than all of their past sins will be forgiven. In sha Allah, all right, we will conclude over here botica Lo Fi con next lesson will

00:35:43 --> 00:36:04

be slightly long in sha Allah, today's class was a little easy in the sense that next your homework will be easy for you, Inshallah, next class be ready. Okay, Baraka low Fico. Inshallah, we will conclude over here, subclinical Lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa. Anta Astok Furukawa Tobu inagh was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
