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

What

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

do

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

we do? Hey, Maddie Wally albina

00:00:21--> 00:00:29

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as mine.

00:00:31--> 00:00:36

So today inshallah huhtala is the last part of the Tafseer of salted bellet

00:00:38--> 00:00:50

the last part of the Tafseer of soda to ballot and we reached the statement of Eliza gel foam McCann, I mean, Dina and I know what our soul be Saberi whatever. So Bill Maher, Herman.

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

First of all, we have to go back and remind ourselves where we were last time.

00:00:58--> 00:01:03

So we had spoken about the statement of Eliza gel Philip Hammond acaba.

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

And Does anyone remember what we said that acaba is

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

it's a route, it's a road that goes through the mountains. And why is it that Allah azza wa jal described

00:01:17--> 00:01:36

this life when Eliza just said laqad, Hakuna in scientific habit, we created mankind in suffering and trials and hardships. And then Allah said, Eliza just said Philip Hammond acaba, what's the relation of the Aqaba to the trials of this life and the difficulties?

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

why did why would you not describe it as a Sirat or a 30? A road? Why describe it as a acaba?

00:01:49--> 00:02:31

Very good. So you're going to encounter a lot of difficulties. It's going to be a hard struggle. It's not an easy path all the time. It's a clear path. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, talk to come Alibaba. I left you upon a clear path. Later on lelo her kanheri her lazy one her Illa Holic nobody diverts away from it except the one who is destroyed. So it's not about the past not being clear. But it's not a simple rule that you never have a difficulty sometimes you have to struggle you have to strive it's some it's a road through the mountains. And also it's a road that has many,

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

you can say diversions from it.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

Like a light switch.

00:02:37--> 00:02:47

Told us why and how the CLT must Ducky men fat to do while at Tabby Russo Buddha fetter for Roku and sebelah. This is

00:02:49--> 00:03:12

the path of Allah azza wa jal the Straight Path of Allah. This is the Straight Path of Allah azza wa jal so follow it and don't follow any of the other paths, which means that on this path, there are paths that lead off to the left and the right like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he drew one day in the sun, he drew a straight line and then he drew from this many other lines.

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

And he explained to us that the straight line is the path of Allah.

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

And the other lines there is a shape on on the corner of every path who is calling you to go away from the straight path. So the path is a path which has some difficulties on it. The analyzer just said fella kata hammer Acaba and he will you not cross over this path. Will you not go over this mountain pass? winner Adela, camel acaba, and what will make you know how to cross this mountain? How will you go through this difficult path? Then Eliza Jen mentioned some of the deeds that will take you safely across this mountain path.

00:03:56--> 00:04:10

Allah as we just said for Kolkata, freeing a slave out it's Armaan filming the mascota or feeding the people at a time when the food is little a day of farming.

00:04:11--> 00:04:30

Yet even there Makarova an orphan who is near to you in relation a woman's skin and then at lava or a poor person who it is as if they have nothing but dust that matter robber as if the only thing they have is to rob the or nothing at all.

00:04:31--> 00:04:41

Then a large Virgil told us from McCann, Amina, levena, Ehrman, whatever, so be sabeti whatever. So Bill Mohammed.

00:04:42--> 00:04:55

The word Zuma in the Tafseer comes with two meanings. And we've got to ask ourselves which of the two meanings is correct here and why? So it comes with the meaning of

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

tacky, one thing following another. So you

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

Say for example Mohammedan from as eight

00:05:06--> 00:05:26

This is for a Taro tea and he for coming in order. So Mohammed came, and then Zaid came. So here from in English, we would say, then Jah Mohammedan, Mohammed came from as eight, then say it came, and his aid came after Mohammed.

00:05:28--> 00:05:32

And that's the normal meaning of film.

00:05:33--> 00:05:43

Does that meaning here work in the ayah? Does it make sense? thornleigh Karen Amina levena. And then the person is from those who believe.

00:05:45--> 00:05:59

You have to give a reason for what you say, and we want to hear from from the people watching on YouTube as well. That's why we have a live stream so that they can contribute, they can tell us what they think. Then the person was from those who believed

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

then the person was from those who believed from and he then after that the person was from those who believed.

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

Does it work that meaning of format? If so, why? And if not, why not?

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

Thinking about it. Okay. Anyone here got any ideas?

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

And then you have to believe after that.

00:06:34--> 00:06:48

Now that you made a good, I'm just I'm just you made a very good point is a very good point. So you said like as if those things are to fulfill your email. Yeah. And after doing those things you will become from the people of email like that.

00:06:51--> 00:07:14

It'll increase your Eman. As a very small part, that's not a bad suggestion. It's not a bad suggestion. We all agreed that it can't be the case that a man comes after those things. I mean, in the sense of, you can't become a believer, after you've fed the orphan and looked after the poor person and then you become a Muslim.

00:07:16--> 00:07:23

You have to be a Muslim. First. Right. Otherwise those deeds would not be accepted. Yes. What is it? What are they saying?

00:07:30--> 00:07:59

Somebody who didn't attempt the path, yet in the sense that I think the concern is that what you shouldn't understand from this ayah is that a man comes after good deeds. Eman is a prerequisite of good deeds. You can't have those good deeds will not be accepted from you, unless you have email. So the meaning of the ayah here is not guaranteed in the sense that a man comes after

00:08:00--> 00:08:01

those things.

00:08:03--> 00:08:25

Not in Not, not in a direct sense anyway. Yes, we could. We could look at it in the sense of those things, complete your email and increase your Eman. But to say from McCarran I mean, a Latina woman doesn't mean from a bad economy in a Latina and then after doing all of those things, the person who came from those who believe because those things are not conditions of

00:08:26--> 00:09:03

us rule Eman. Right? They don't they're not the foundation of Eman that if you don't feed a poor person, you're not a Muslim. Right? It's not the case that if you if I feed a poor person, I'm a Muslim. And if I don't feed a poor person, that I'm not a Muslim, is from Allah manual worship from the obligatory actions of a man or from any man and wants to have depending on what they talk about Zakah or sidecar. It's from the man which is obligatory or the Eman which is recommended. So in other words in mind, we have three, three levels, right? We have the basic part of email.

00:09:04--> 00:09:11

And by the basic part of human we mean what makes you a Muslim. The thing the basic level that this is what makes you a Muslim,

00:09:12--> 00:09:21

the Shahada and La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. And you bring the conditions of that Shahada, you bring the the requirements of it.

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

This makes you a Muslim. Then you have what we call la man, Alhaji the obligatory man.

00:09:30--> 00:09:40

This doesn't take you outside of Islam, but it's what you have to do, right? Like you have to pay your soccer and you have to do Hajj, if you have the financial ability and so on.

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

Then we have an Emanuel's to have recommended email, which is all the voluntary good deeds. And if you want to call this Islam and a man and a son, you can call it like that you can make it like that, that Islam is the basic requirement. And man are the things you have to do and your son

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

The sooner the voluntary, the voluntary deeds, that's one way otherwise the word Islam and Eman have many different ways of looking at it. Not all the same. But one way you can look at it is to say Islam is the minimum and Eman is what you have to do. And so that is what is above what you have to do like what is recommended. So here feeding a poor person is either from

00:10:26--> 00:10:44

the middle one, either from the last one, feeding the poor person, it's either the car and you have to do it, or it's other car and it's recommended to do. So it doesn't remove a man from a person if they don't do it. It doesn't make a person capital if they don't do it.

00:10:45--> 00:11:10

But whenever you don't do something that Allah azzawajal commanded you to do, your demand goes down. And whenever you do something that Allah commanded you to do your demand goes up, he has to be taught when cuso bid Mercia it goes up with good deeds and it goes down with since right. Okay, so we had a little bit of understanding now that Thoma here doesn't mean that it follows on from

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

but the meaning of filming here.

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

It is not for a

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

filmmaker examining. But the meaning of what some may hear is

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

is that a person how can we explain it?

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

The

00:11:38--> 00:11:51

End The meaning is, and And furthermore, any in addition to that, that's what the that's the best way you can translate it into English. Furthermore, or in addition to that.

00:11:53--> 00:12:07

So here, Allah subhanaw taala tells us something about the conditions of our deeds being accepted. So we've all agreed that feeding a poor person is a good deed. Looking after the orphan is a good deed and

00:12:09--> 00:12:17

freeing the slaves is a good deed. And it's either obligatory or it's either must have depended on the situation of the person or what have you.

00:12:20--> 00:12:31

Allah subhanaw taala tells us a little bit about what it takes for our actions to be accepted. What does it take for our actions to be accepted by Allah?

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

The first thing it takes is it takes Islam

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

and we can take this from the statement of Allah xojo from McCann Amina Latina, armano

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

it takes

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

Islam because Allah azza wa jal doesn't accept any deeds from a person

00:12:53--> 00:13:11

until that person brings the the foundation of those deeds which is La ilaha illAllah. And that's why I shall have your love on her. She asked about a man and that man was known in the time of Jay Z, time before Islam to be very generous person.

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

To be very generous person is very, very generous.

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

And

00:13:20--> 00:13:25

they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this person, what's his situation?

00:13:26--> 00:13:34

And Allah azzawajal didn't accept any of his deeds, because he never ever said, Oh ALLAH forgive me.

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

for my sins on the Day of Resurrection, in other words, he didn't bring Islam. So all of those good deeds didn't matter.

00:13:43--> 00:13:56

Now, why this is really important is this is a really, really good response to himself. So very good response to when atheists talk to you about human values.

00:13:58--> 00:14:27

And I'm sure you've had this conversation if you involve sometimes in Dawa, or if you sometimes talk to people about Islam, people will say, Look, I'm good to my neighbor, I'm good to my parents, I care about people. Why are you gonna, you know, blame me because I just don't believe in God, right? Like I I take care of the poor people. A Christian says, Why should I become Muslim at the end of the day, love thy neighbor, I love my neighbor and I, you know, and I am good to people and I feed the poor, and I look after the needy.

00:14:28--> 00:14:36

But Allah azza wa jal made that a man a condition for those deeds to be accepted. Soon I can I mean, unless

00:14:38--> 00:14:52

you can free all the slaves you want, but if you didn't bring a man, it's not going to benefit you. It might benefit them. So benefit the slave the slave is freed and they get to live their their life but it doesn't benefit you unless you brought a man with it.

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

You might be so good to your neighbors, but it doesn't benefit you to be good to your neighbors. If you made public

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

With a live search, and it's good for your neighbors, but it doesn't benefit you. And that's why generally these people, the only thing they look at is the relationship between Benny Adam, are you good to your neighbor? Are you good to your friends? Are you good to your parents? And they don't look at the relationship between you and Allah. And the saddest thing is that so many people in dour, they start to give Dawa to Islam like this. When you ask them, what's good about Islam, they say, well, Islam tells you to be good to your neighbor. And Islam tells you to be good to your parents. And Islam tells you to keep ties with your relatives pay. But atheists do that. They don't

00:15:39--> 00:15:51

do it like Muslims do. But you're not giving really the difference between Islam and other people. You're giving some of the mahasin good things about Islam, but you're not really getting to the point. From McCain, I mean, Alevtina.

00:15:53--> 00:16:23

You have to believe in your Lord, it's your relationship with Allah. We're talking about here. And yes, if your relationship with Allah is good, your relationship with everyone else is going to be good. And yes, if you're if you are a Muslim, you're going to be better towards your parents and your neighbors and your community and your friends and so on. Because you're following the guidance from Allah about those things. But that's not what differentiates between the people agenda and the people of the fire is not the fact that you are nice to your neighbors or not.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

What really differentiates between people is who you worship.

00:16:29--> 00:16:55

So how can a person talk all about the rights of creation, and not talk about the rights of the Creator and if you look at soil to Bella, this is just one of the many examples in the Quran, where Allah azza wa jal joins between the rights of creation and the rights of the Creator. So what's going to get you over the mountain pass for kusakabe freeing a slave. It's Armaan filming the merkabah giving out food when the people are needing

00:16:56--> 00:17:10

you giving it to the looking after your team you're looking after the miskeen all of that is from Rococo a but looking after people, but none of that is going to benefit you to get over the mountain pass unless you're from the people of Amen.

00:17:11--> 00:17:24

Because Allah azza wa jal one of the things we learn about a tetrahedral ship is that if a person makes a partner with a law, one of the rulings one of the outcomes of making a partner with Allah is water.

00:17:25--> 00:17:32

All your deeds are rendered null and void. Everything good you have ever done is just wiped out like that. Gone.

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

Eliza just told us I didn't know. I'm in Miami room in LA.

00:17:41--> 00:17:57

habra Ventura, we came to what they have put forward the deeds they put forward and we made it into dust sky dust. Elijah just said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah called or he la cocina Latina men carbolic Allah in ashlock de la putana amoc

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

wallet akuna nominal ha CD

00:18:01--> 00:18:10

or message messenger of Allah if you with your prophet hood, if you made a partner with Allah we would wipe out everything good you have ever done.

00:18:12--> 00:18:29

Your prophet hood gone your your good deeds gone everything good you ever did, we will wipe it out. Allah said that to the Prophet sallallahu earlier said we have revealed to you in the singular you one person that if you made a partner with Allah, we would wipe out everything good that you ever did.

00:18:30--> 00:18:57

So at the end of the day, yes, Islam looks at Fukuoka, but Islam looks at looking after people as a way to get gender. But if the only thing you're doing is looking after other people, you're very good for the people but you're no good between you and Allah and you're not going to get over that mountain pass by looking after people if you don't bring it with a man and that's not mentioned and just sort of a ballad that is mentioned as a theme throughout the whole

00:18:58--> 00:19:06

look after the poor look after the needy be good to look at Christianity now. Christianity now became nothing but a but

00:19:08--> 00:19:20

they have no actually that anymore. Nothing zero. Not even they don't even have belief in Jesus anymore is the key that they don't believe in anything. Except just being good to your neighbor and being nice to people.

00:19:22--> 00:19:38

That's not what Islam is about. You bring a man and then you bring a bat. You bring faith you correct what's between you and Allah. And then you look out for people and you're kind to people, you bring those two together as for bringing

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

the rights of people and ignoring the rights of Allah, that how Allah created you. And can we not bring evidence from sorts of ballot for this? Lm Naja Allah who I named Wally Cernan worship attain what Heidi now who Nigeria in Fela kata Hamel acaba Didn't we make for this person to it

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Under tongue and to lips,

00:20:03--> 00:20:41

then the only thing they care about is vocal about. The only thing they care about is being nice to your neighbor and good to the people who pass you in the street. After Allah is the one who gave your eyes and Allah is the one who gave you a tongue, by what are you being good to people, you're being good to them with the tongue that Allah created with the hand that Allah created for you, with the lips that Allah created for you, then you ignore a lot and you only care about being good to the people. So this is important that we understand that we have to look at both of these aspects. We have to take care of what is between us and Allah. And what is between us and the people and this

00:20:41--> 00:20:52

many times will lie you'll be surprised I'm talking about other religions. But in reality, many Muslims have completely lost this concept. That's why when you say well, they say well, I'm a good Muslim.

00:20:53--> 00:20:57

So what makes you a good Muslim said Well, I'm a really good Muslim because I do and they mentioned

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

things they do for other people.

00:21:02--> 00:21:09

From McCann, Amina levena em and then the person was from the people of Eman

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

from the people have

00:21:14--> 00:21:22

email and that tells us that the only way to get over the acaba to get over the mountain pass is to be a person of email

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

from McCann Amina Latina Am I know

00:21:30--> 00:21:36

what lol So the summary whatever so be my hammer. There's one more point about the Latina Amman.

00:21:38--> 00:21:56

Two points I want to raise general points about the word Eman. First of all, what's the difference between Islam and a man who can give me a nice job on Fox fossa? A nice detailed, darkly precise answer for this one.

00:21:58--> 00:22:33

A lot he I mentioned what, Eman? He didn't mention Islam here. Right. So when does one What does one mean? And when does that mean that and what how do I when I cross come across the word Eman on its own here? Does it mean obligatory deeds? Does it mean Islam? Does it mean voluntary deeds? Does it mean all of them? Does it mean some of them when we come across the word Eman by itself? Or come across the word Islam by itself? What about when we come across a man and good deeds? What's the difference between them?

00:22:36--> 00:22:45

So they say that the word Islam and Iman are words that when they come together, they go apart and when they go apart, they come together.

00:22:47--> 00:23:03

do that one more time. The word Islam and Eman are two words. When they are apart, they come together. And when they're together they go apart. What that means is when you find them on their own, they bring the meaning of both.

00:23:04--> 00:23:47

And when you find them together in the same sentence, each one has its own meaning. So if you find Islam and Eamon in a sentence, Islam means something and human means something else. But if you find one of them on their own, then both of the two meanings are there. So for example, when Eliza just said in a dinner in the law Hill Islam the only religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. This covers Islam and it covers email and when it just says talks about the movement, this covers the Muslim the word is Muslim workmen means the same thing when it comes on its own. So here from McCann, Amina levena Amma know the meaning here is encompasses Islamic Eman. Both

00:23:48--> 00:23:59

but when they come together in the same sentence, then it depends each one has its own meaning either Islam is the base and Eman is the obligatory deeds or

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

Islam is the outward actions and Eman is that are the actions you do in your heart, and so on.

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

So like the hadith of gibreel, Islam came to mean the

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

the things you do as a matter of Valhalla are things you do on the outside,

00:24:18--> 00:24:18

and

00:24:19--> 00:24:46

the actions you take the actions you take. And likewise, a man came to refer to the things that you believe on the inside. But in reality if you just mentioned one of those words, it covers both of those things. And actions are a part of a man right? A man is made up of what I meant made up of five things. What five things is a man made of let's make it easier a man's made of three things first of all, what three things is a man made up of

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

imagine

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Okay, lovely. So imagine what comes into what you believe in your heart.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

And what your tongue professors and what your actions your limbs do. So imagine Is

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

it a cotton,

00:25:15--> 00:25:32

wool colon vironment? So it's what you believe. And it's what you say. And it's what you do. All of those are a part of email. If you want to expand email into five things. How do we break those three into five? How do we cut it up?

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

We said generally,

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

belief,

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

statement action.

00:25:41--> 00:25:54

But what about if we want to make it into into more than that we want to be really detailed. So this is where the dilemma they say, the first thing is that we can break it up into statements of the heart and statements of the tongue.

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

and actions of the heart and actions of the tongue and actions of the limbs.

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

Okay.

00:26:04--> 00:26:12

Stay with me, we'll get there in sha Allah, statements of the heart. What do we mean by a statement of your heart? colon?

00:26:14--> 00:26:14

Well,

00:26:16--> 00:26:44

yeah, that's me. You're nearly there with that one. That's what you believe. Right? It's like your statement is if your heart had a manifesto, right as if your heart had like, this is what I believe. Number one, number two, number three. This is cold call. It's your Akita. It's what you believe in your heart what you believe to be true. I believe in Allah, I believe in the angels. This is the statement your heart makes. It says if your heart said, I'm going to give you a breakdown of what I believe 12345

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

that's cold.

00:26:47--> 00:26:53

What about how Elisa, what your tongue says your statements of your tongue?

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

What about the statements of your tongue?

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

Very good Shahada. So this is what your tongue expresses what it believes. So your heart has got some some things that it believes. And your tongue says it.

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

This is not Vicar it's not. It's when your tongue

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

verbalizes

00:27:19--> 00:27:25

that belief that is in your heart by the Shahada eyeshadow, La ilaha illallah wa shadow under Muhammad Rasulullah

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

right.

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

Now what about the actions of the heart?

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

Nia

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

so Nia is one. Let's see how many actions of the heart Can we get?

00:27:44--> 00:27:49

Just quickfire just shout them out as many as you can think of me as if Joel had to give us near intention.

00:27:51--> 00:28:17

That's an action of the heart is something your limb does? Is it something your tongue does? Should tongue shouldn't do it some people do along the needle suddenly albaraka art and culture alpha huddle Imam with dejan Leo Qibla or alarm praying for aka behind this Imam facing Mecca noise something that your heart does. Even in hajj and umrah the tongue is only Sunnah to see on the tongue. What matters is the heart.

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

had that love, love something is not something Love is not something you do with your hands. Love is not something you do with your tongue. Love is an action in your heart.

00:28:30--> 00:28:41

Fear hope to work okay, good. We've got some examples of actions of the heart tawakkol reliance, hope fear these actions of the heart. Okay, what about actions of the tongue?

00:28:43--> 00:28:56

We said statements of the tongue is primarily the shadow when you're expressing what is the belief that you have in your heart You're verbalizing it, you're taking that belief from your heart, and you're making it into words. But what about the other actions of the tongue?

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

Like Vicar reciting the Quran, like saying a good word Kelly, metal by Eva,

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

seeing a nice word to somebody. These are actions of the tongue.

00:29:13--> 00:29:24

And what about the last one actions of the limbs? There are many things in that. So if you've learned that about a man, what's the virtue of Salah the virtue of Salah is that prayer goes into all of them.

00:29:26--> 00:29:38

That prayer falls into action of the heart and action of the tongue and actions of the limbs for example. It's one of that comprehensive deeds that has every part of your Eman is involved in it.

00:29:40--> 00:29:48

So that's that's a little bit about the concept of Eman. All of this is included in the statement of Eliza Jensen McCann Amina Latina Amman.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

So here when Allah says amen we're amylose oily heart We already covered this in the Tafseer salted acid II Latina and Wyoming oily heart, the meaning of this

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

Not that the deeds are separate from the man

00:30:04--> 00:30:20

it's not that the man is something and your Iman soil is something else. This is mentioning a type of something after mentioning it generally. For example, example in the Quran is often given my Can I do one Lila? He

00:30:21--> 00:30:32

won mela ekati he was sorry he wedgie. breel when we can, whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and his messengers and jabril and Mika,

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

hold on, is jabril not an angel

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

to prison Angel. McCallum Angel jabril is a messenger

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

and given them delivering the message from

00:30:45--> 00:31:32

Allah azza wa jal. So why did Eliza Jen mentioned gibreel and Mikael when they were already included first because this is an example of a specific reason give you an even easier example. He cannot a Buddha can assign you alone we worship and You alone we ask for help. Asking for help is a type of worship, but it's mentioned for a particular reason. So when Allah mentions and he man will go silent when Allah mentions Eman And Allah mentions good deeds. The reason for that is not because good deeds are separate from a man but because there's a need to emphasize the value of those good deeds among all the different parts of Eman And we talked about that in saltiel acid Okay, so here I

00:31:32--> 00:31:39

am a solid has not mentioned but it's included in the word email from McCann Amina Latina and men are included in that is doing good deeds

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

to good deeds I mentioned here

00:31:43--> 00:31:55

whatever, so be sorry, whatever. So, Bill Maher have a Tomasi we mentioned about insulted So, we said Tomasi is mutual advice.

00:31:58--> 00:32:07

So, it's different from naseeha slightly because naseeha is like you can give no Say hi to someone and they might not give it back to you right.

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

But Tomasi, the, the the verb here of tough out here, this is

00:32:15--> 00:32:26

tougher Allah is to do something mutually. And you do it and I do we exchange to exchange advice.

00:32:28--> 00:32:46

And exchanging advice is one of the most fundamental things that Muslims need to do. The prophets license in a dino lawsuit, this religion is giving good advice. To be honest, the word Nazi here doesn't really mean good advice. It's actually not a very good translation to save means good advice actually means acting sincerely towards someone.

00:32:48--> 00:33:02

Because that's why how do you advise a lot you can't advise Allah. Carla Lila, he will he kitabi he will eurocity you can't advise Allah. But what it means is to act sincerely towards because when you're giving someone advice, why are you giving somebody advice?

00:33:03--> 00:33:13

Because of your desire of you know your sincerity towards them, you won't good for them, right? So that feeling of behaving in a sincere way that's what's meant by a dino nasiha.

00:33:14--> 00:33:36

This religion is about behaving sincerely, to whom a messenger of Allah to Allah to His Book to His Messenger behaving sincerely. So Allah azza wa jal told us about this Tomasi that the Muslims encourage one another, advise one another. Here the Tomasi is besotted. This already came sort of

00:33:38--> 00:33:41

advising each other to have sub

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

sub we mentioned is of three major types.

00:33:47--> 00:34:00

The first type of patience is patience in doing good deeds. The second type is patience in keeping away from sins and the third type has been patient in the face of what a lot of decrease for you to happen from the difficulties

00:34:02--> 00:34:12

all of them are intended here, but the one that is especially especially in fact To be honest, all of you can look at all of them you can find all of them in the store.

00:34:13--> 00:34:14

You can find all of them there.

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

So when ally surgeon said

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

Fela kata Hemel Aqaba,

00:34:22--> 00:34:46

you crossing the mountain pass that crossing the mountain pass requires sovereign in the face of the difficulties that are like decrease for you. A lot decrease certain things to happen to you as a test or trial certain problems certain difficulties, you have to be patient with those difficulties laqad Hakuna in South Africa that we created man in this toil and struggle.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

This tells us

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

that we need to have some patience in the face of what Allah decrees for us. difficulties, hardships, troubles, problems.

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

limbs saw

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

suffer Upon doing good deeds.

00:35:09--> 00:35:55

This is also found in the same Surah fekola Kaaba, how its arm on film enzimas Kaaba Yattaman van Makarova, miskeen and Emma traba. Toto tells us about having suburbs and doing good deeds. And if you want to cross that mountain paths, you are going to need to be patient in doing good deeds. giving charity requires patience. It's not easy. shaitaan comes to you and tells you your money is going to go down, you're going to lose your money, you're going to become poor, just give it next month, not not this month, don't give too much why you put shaytan tells you these things. So it requires suburb to do those good deeds and sober to keep away from sins and disobedience to Allah

00:35:55--> 00:35:58

azza wa jal suffer in keeping away from what Allah made.

00:36:00--> 00:36:00

Haram.

00:36:01--> 00:36:05

And you can take this from the statement of allies we had a nice day.

00:36:06--> 00:36:26

We had a Navajo and Niger Dean, we showed him the path of good and the path of evil. We showed him the two paths. So when Allah showed you the path of evil, it requires suffer for you to keep away from that path of evil. And when Allah showed you the path of good, it requires subber to stay upon that path of good

00:36:27--> 00:36:43

and a Muslim is always trying to train themselves. That's why you have Tomasi you keep telling each other to have suffered because you train yourself to have suffered. Right? It's not easy, it doesn't come naturally to a person.

00:36:44--> 00:36:55

Mankind is generally a jewel, always trying to rush racing to do things that are not good for you. Mankind is

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

hasty,

00:36:58--> 00:37:00

mankind is often ungrateful

00:37:01--> 00:37:38

to Allah subhanaw taala. So patience is something you have to train yourself. You don't get patients overnight and you don't get it all the time. So one of the things that trains you to have patience is Tomasi. Everyone is sharing with each other, showing each other, demonstrating in your character and your personality to be patient. You're patient with other people that they learn to be patient and you tell them and they tell you and you're each all encouraging each other to be patient. And being patient doesn't mean being patient just in the sense of how we say in English or actually be patient. In other words, wait until the quarter that you are you know what you're asking a lot, wait

00:37:38--> 00:37:43

until Allah gives it to you. But patients also you know, keep coming to the masjid every day.

00:37:44--> 00:37:55

Don't come and then stop going. You know, keep away from that heroin that is tempting for you. All of that is patience you keep everyone is advising each other to be to have that patience.

00:37:56--> 00:38:06

And you're going to need that sober. To cross over this mountain pass. You're going to need all of those types of suburbs, you're going to need the suburb, which is the suburb of

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

keeping away from Harlem.

00:38:11--> 00:38:25

Because if you go into the Harlem it's going to take you away from whether it be a suitable fit for kaboom and Sabine. If you follow those other paths, the Haram path is going to take you away from the path of Allah, you're going to go off the mountain paths, you're gonna go somewhere else.

00:38:26--> 00:38:44

And likewise, you're going to need suffering doing good deeds, because the climb up a mountain. you're climbing up a mountain. It's a road. It's not you're not climbing on the Roxy. I know you've got a road but it's a climb, it's steep. There's boulders that stones you have to be patient to get over get to the top.

00:38:45--> 00:39:10

And sometimes Ally's going to put tests for you. And let the holla call Mota will hire Talia Balu from a UK accent was the one who created death and life to test you which review is best in deeds. You're going to have tests sometimes. Sometimes you're not going to get the right make the right choices. You're going to have you're going to fall down you're gonna have to get back up and go start again. So you're going to need patience

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

for mechanical Edina erlin or whatever so be sabeti whatever. So Bill Maher, Hannah,

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

and they advise each other to be merciful.

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

They act merciful because Taurasi can be the act towards someone. So you have patience with other people and they have patience with you. That's part of Tomasi. It's not just advice to us. It's not just me saying chiacchio spill, this will disappear, have patience. It's not just that behaving patiently, and then other people behave patiently and behaving mercifully, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and even local aprimo Katia Rahim Allah to Allah when he made the Tafseer of the ayah. He mentioned a Rahim on a Hama Hama Rahman. It hammelmann fill out your hand can

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

Memphis Selma

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

the most the merciful people, the Most Merciful will have mercy on them.

00:40:09--> 00:40:15

People who are merciful the Most Merciful will have mercy on them Allah will have mercy on people who are merciful.

00:40:16--> 00:40:27

It Hamill men fill out. Be merciful towards who is on the earth. Your hankou Memphis summer, the one in the heavens will be merciful to you.

00:40:29--> 00:40:42

Now if you think about this Howdy, the word men here is mean alfalfa or moon, like the scholars have a full effect. They say it's a general word, it covers everything, be merciful to everything on the earth, everything on the earth

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

be merciful to everything and everyone.

00:40:49--> 00:40:54

It's not just about being merciful to your friends, or even to the Muslims.

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

What was it the shareholders management team? he said.

00:41:01--> 00:41:10

He said the and Asana are the most knowledgeable of the people about Allah and the Most Merciful of the people towards creation.

00:41:11--> 00:41:52

And how strange is that? You see me sooner, people who are the app should do this. This too harsh with people. That doesn't mean you don't defend your religion. Be a person who is from the signs of a man is that you have Rama you have mercy towards people. And we know that allies are just said I was just said earlier for the US Federal Reserve for your special ally to Buddha alpha Allahu lecom. In Salta, north, Allah said to Abu Bakr, forgiven, overlook, do you not want a lot of forgive you? If you want to have mercy on you, you need to be merciful towards other people.

00:41:54--> 00:42:15

And that mercy has to it it's not mercy doesn't mean that you know someone is doing something haram and you let them go, that's not merciful to them. That's why when Allah described his sauce, which is retribution, right, the hand for the hand, the eye for the eye and the truth for the truth and a life for a life. Allah said what a conflict is also higher when

00:42:16--> 00:42:27

there is life for you in retribution. When you kill the one who kills someone else, this brings life to the community. It saves people from being killed.

00:42:28--> 00:42:50

And it brings about mercy to the community so and when I say mercy, I don't mean mercy means that everything you let it go and you don't ever you know, you don't apply the rules of Islam to anyone or anything like that. That's not merciful, but be a person who is a person who is merciful to other people. And this will encourage people to be merciful to each other.

00:42:51--> 00:42:54

And Allah will be merciful to you because of this mercy.

00:42:56--> 00:43:07

This also tells us this mother Hannah, mentioned in the ayah it tells us that to cross the mountain pass you need to have Rama

00:43:08--> 00:43:10

you can't cross it with

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

you know cost what we'll call the hot hot

00:43:15--> 00:43:19

and look at how Eliza gel criticize the people who came before you.

00:43:20--> 00:43:28

lm yet Neely Latina and then oh and Tasha. Aku boom Lea de la womanizer. laminal Huck, hasn't the time come?

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

For those who believe for their hearts to become soft by the remembrance of Allah what has been revealed to them for the truth?

00:43:37--> 00:44:01

What a cool Catalina Oh to get up. Don't be like the people who are given the book before you felt Allah Allah, Allah Allah do such cool boom. And then see the time period went on in their hearts became hard from concept guru coming by the Delica here, Kelly ijarah to a shed do housework, then your hearts became hard after that they became like stones or even harder than stones.

00:44:04--> 00:44:36

And here there is a link between that and between the team. Because one of the ways you soften the heart is by looking after the a team in fact, generally by looking after people, and generally like being good towards people, if you have a man and you're good towards people, this is from the things which softens the heart, given food to the poor people is something that brings about Rama. When you show Rama towards those people so Allah shows Rama towards you and makes your heart soft.

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

makes your heart soft.

00:44:41--> 00:44:43

So McCann Amina Latina, ermanno

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

whatever, so be sabeti whatever. So Bill Maher hammer.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

Also the fact that these two things are highlighted, along with a man shows the importance of those things in the site.

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

Allah, because remember every good deed you do is part of a man. So it would have been sufficient to say from McCann Amina Latina Amma no full stop.

00:45:10--> 00:45:20

But when Allah azza wa jal mentioned whatsoever, so we saw that he was also Bill Maher hammer. It shows the importance of patience and mercy in achieving this goal.

00:45:21--> 00:45:31

That's why Allah highlighted these two things. Aside from all the other things in Eman, all the good deeds that are part of Eman, Allah highlighted the sobre indorama

00:45:33--> 00:45:35

because of the need of them in

00:45:37--> 00:45:49

on the path to gender analyzer gel, also mentioned in many Ayat of the Quran, the people who are not merciful towards others,

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

and how this is a

00:45:54--> 00:45:56

description of those who disbelieve.

00:45:58--> 00:46:04

And that doesn't mean that not being merciful is disbelief, but it's what you find among the disbelievers.

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

In surah, many source of the Quran Kela Bell,

00:46:09--> 00:46:11

not know I'm thinking of Allah, which I said,

00:46:12--> 00:46:18

for example, our surgeon told us for that he can lead the team

00:46:20--> 00:46:27

or 811, you can we will be Dean for that he can lead the door earlier team, what are your hopes to allow for army miskeen?

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

Have you seen the one who believes in the resurrection? What do you expect from that person? What do you expect? What's your expectation from the person who doesn't believe in the resurrection so that he can lead the adult earlier team that's the one who doesn't look after the orphan

00:46:47--> 00:46:54

pushes the orphan away? What I hope to allow for army miskeen and they don't encourage each other and they don't work to feed the poor people.

00:46:56--> 00:46:59

So have you seen the connection between this and the drama

00:47:00--> 00:47:19

that not having our Russia towards allies creation? That is from the siefert of those people who disbelief is from the description of the people who don't believe Kayla Bella to creola team wallet have done it for me miskeen

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

rather, you don't look after

00:47:23--> 00:47:30

the orphan and you don't work together encouraging each other to feed the poor people.

00:47:32--> 00:47:54

That doesn't mean that someone who's like this is not a Muslim, but we're seeing that it's not the characteristic of a Muslim because the characteristic of a Muslim is grandma what else will be subsidy whatever. So Bill Maher hammer una icaros horrible main manner they are the people of the right and may manner

00:47:57--> 00:48:00

they also called us hyperbole, I mean, the people of the right hand

00:48:04--> 00:48:09

Why are they called the people of the right or the people of

00:48:10--> 00:48:17

the right hand, one of three reasons or more, but we give three of them and they are very same or similar.

00:48:19--> 00:48:23

They either called Li mean, because of

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

the virtue of the right hand.

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

And that the right hand is the one that

00:48:36--> 00:48:46

it's the one that does all of the good deeds right. Like generally speaking, it's the right hand is the hand that is associated directly with the good deeds

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

or because of a human

00:48:54--> 00:49:05

because of a human meaning albaraka in the word yameen also refers to something being having Baraka

00:49:07--> 00:49:12

something having Baraka, we also use the word yameen.

00:49:14--> 00:49:17

Or because they are the people who are given the books in their right hand.

00:49:19--> 00:49:26

For mmm ooh t Akita who be I mean, as for the one who's given their book in their right hand.

00:49:28--> 00:49:49

So either because of the virtue of the right hand and the right hand side being decide the profit size and Mr. prefer a tm, one used to prefer to do the things with his right hand side in everything, except for his allatoona jsot except for removing the unclean things. He used to prefer his right hand side in everything that he did.

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

Used to prefer his right hand side

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

or because of illumine, meaning albaraka because they are the people of Baraka. They're the people of blessing.

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

The blessed people all because of they will be given their book in their right hand so they known by like a label or your the people, you are as heavily I mean the people who took their book in their right hand

00:50:16--> 00:50:44

the people who took their book in their right hand as opposed to the people who took their book in their left hand or behind behind their back. Sometimes Allah mentions the right hand and the left hand and sometimes Allah mentions the right hand and taking the book from behind your back. Some of the scholars join between it and said, the disbelievers will take their book in their left hand behind their back and some of them said that one is the monarchy and one is the character we'll take it the left of the monastic from behind their back

00:50:45--> 00:50:48

and we don't really have a clear evidence one way or the other but

00:50:49--> 00:51:01

like that it's used the right the people who take their book in the right hands and even the name you mean even the name right handed comes from a human America

00:51:03--> 00:51:08

it's as though the Arabs in their usage of language they named the hand after Baraka.

00:51:11--> 00:51:17

Okay, this is a question though, is now we have a question. Why then, is the left hand called Yes, sir.

00:51:19--> 00:51:21

If the right hand is clearly I mean, we know you

00:51:23--> 00:51:28

from the issue of Baraka, why do you call the left hand? Yes, sir.

00:51:32--> 00:51:44

Mineral use of mineral use. Some of them said it comes from not some of them said it comes from a user from ease. Lacking this is a problem, what's easy about the left hand and the right hand is the hand of

00:51:45--> 00:51:54

the hand of strength, right? law has now. Minho billion in, we will seize him with the right hand.

00:51:55--> 00:52:18

And he amine is used for so why is the left hand they say this is the example of labeling something with the opposite. You know they in Arabic, we don't use crude words. You know, generally, Arabic is a very beautiful language like that. We don't use rude crude words, for things. Even if you look at how, you know, and this is a real lesson we'll learn this.

00:52:19--> 00:52:47

If you look at how Arabic deals with sensitive, embarrassing issues, very, very gentle words, unlike if you see the state of the schools today and what they teach the kids, they can't because everything for them is sorry, everything for them is just like the most vulgar. The most, you know, they just can't they just have to, they only have one word for things. And it's rude. You know, they don't have like, soft ways of saying things.

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

They don't have nice ways and soft ways of saying things.

00:52:56--> 00:53:05

As for Arabic, Arabic is full of very soft and subtle ways of saying things. And one of the things they do is they name something by its opposite.

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

They Name something by its opposite.

00:53:10--> 00:53:25

So they take something that is and they name it. The name of the opposite. So the example the chef give one of the examples, like the example of the lady is the one who has been stung calling them Sally

00:53:26--> 00:53:37

or the one who is blind calling them elbow seal, the one who can see and instead of saying that blind man, sometimes in Arabic, they refer to him as the one that can see

00:53:39--> 00:53:48

and he referring to it by the by the opposite as a subtle way. So some of them said this is one of the reasons why they called the left hand lasr.

00:53:51--> 00:53:56

In this in this ayah though, after Elijah mentioned the after allies are gentle

00:53:59--> 00:54:00

mentioned

00:54:02--> 00:54:18

the right hand that people have the right hand. He then said well, letting a calf out will be a patina on us herbal Mashallah. And those who disbelieve in our science, they are the people of admission. Anna

00:54:21--> 00:54:30

Eliza gel didn't call them the people of the ASR. So why did Allah not call them the people of the ASR? If there if we had

00:54:32--> 00:54:36

as hyperbole I mean, why do we not call them as Humble yourself?

00:54:37--> 00:54:59

Maybe for two reasons. Number one, because it gives the impression of yourself right that things are going to be easy for them. But also because there are two meanings of mesh ama mesh ama can mean the left hand side and it can mean a shorten the wretched people that people have shown that people who are like shocking, That wretched and they are

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

You know they are cursed

00:55:02--> 00:55:44

and they are bringing evil upon themselves. So the people who disbelieve in the Ayat of Allah azza wa jal are the opposite of the people of Eman. So McCann Amina Latina M and whatever else ob sabeti whatever sobin Muhammad Allah It was horrible may manner when lady in Canada will be. Tina this now we talk about the opposite. These people disbelieve in the ayatollah they don't feed the poor person, or at least they will be deemed a delicate lady earlier to what I hope to Allah for army miskeen they don't feed the poor person. They don't look after the orphan. They disbelieve in the Ayat of Allah. What's the outcome for those people? They're not from the people of Eman. The outcome

00:55:44--> 00:55:50

is hula aka well Edina careful will be Aya Tina, home.

00:55:51--> 00:56:09

Those people who disbelieve in Our Ayat whom as horrible mesh, Emma, they are the people of the left hand side either because they will receive their book in their left hand or behind their back, or an behind their back. Or because they are the people of wretchedness. They're the people who are

00:56:11--> 00:56:23

shocky they're wretched. They're not and the opposite of that is sorry, right? The people who are happy like a chef very sad coming home shocking, you know, I mean, home sorry, don't mean home COVID home woman who has said

00:56:24--> 00:56:52

there are people who are wretched there are people who are happy as in eternally happy in paradise. There are people who are wretched, they bring about evil upon themselves and about and upon other people. They're no good for themselves. They're no good even for the creation of Allah even if the creation of Allah doesn't see it. Maybe they don't see it, but they're no good for anybody. They don't bring any Baraka so we don't call me amin, because they don't bring any human. They don't bring any, any Baraka any hair.

00:56:53--> 00:56:58

They don't bring anything. What did Allah say about them in salsa, beginner, hula, aka,

00:57:00--> 00:57:10

I'm Sharon barrier, they the worst of creation, they're worse than the cattle, Cheryl barrier, and the worst of everything that Allah created

00:57:12--> 00:57:21

worse than the animals worse than the insects. Worse, the worst of the worst shall rule barrier, the worst of all the things that were created.

00:57:23--> 00:57:48

They don't bring any good for themselves. They don't bring any good for other people. They're the people who they leave the orphan. They don't feed the poor, or if they feed the orphan and the poor and which is a rarity. Even if they do this. It doesn't bring any good back to anyone because they didn't do it with a man. And so it doesn't have any barakah in it. There is no Baraka in what they do. And that's why they are

00:57:49--> 00:58:28

they are they are as happy as me the people of the left hand, I lay him no more solder upon them will be a fire that is Mozart Mozart that we mentioned in sorts of formats that we said not so that means more luck, it will be closed upon them. And we say one of the meanings of Masada meaning will occur is that the fire will enclose them, trapped them. You know, you imagine when the fire is really hot, just in dystonia. You move away from it, it's instinctive, right? You know, you burn your hand you you move away, you instinctively

00:58:30--> 00:58:43

go far away from the fire. But what would you do if you were closed? Your members who are homeless that we said What would you do if there was you know, la de la medallic a fire in a room and you're locked inside?

00:58:44--> 00:59:06

The fire is burning and you can't go left you can't go right the door doesn't open the window doesn't open you're locked inside like a box. That's how Eliza describes the hellfire. There is no room for you to move away from the fire. It's not like you can go away from it for even a second not even just a little bit away from it. You are locked inside with it.

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

I lay him known Masada

00:59:11--> 00:59:13

there is no way out from it.

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

And there is no

00:59:19--> 00:59:25

any bass he said mohalla cattle he said all the doors are closed.

00:59:29--> 00:59:36

And Bahar can others they said La Bella Bella who there is no way out from it. There's no door to get out from it.

00:59:38--> 00:59:42

And some of them said other things if you go back to the Tafseer of soar to home is that we explained it.

00:59:43--> 00:59:44

More their

00:59:46--> 00:59:50

energy down lava Bella walls that have no doors

00:59:53--> 00:59:55

cortada he said lebeau

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

what a follow dweller. Hello

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

mean her

01:00:03--> 01:00:04

hero, but

01:00:05--> 01:00:12

he said, it's there is no light in it. There is no escape from it, there is no way out from it forever.

01:00:14--> 01:00:31

And this is the meaning of Masada. Before we finish, I wanted to read you some of what I remember, Abraham allowed to Allah, He said about the soul. And I left this to the end, even though even if we actually would I was going to mention this in the very first lesson, but he talks about the whole

01:00:33--> 01:00:36

surah To be honest, but I just wanted to mention a part of it.

01:00:38--> 01:00:54

He said, and I'm just going to mention the English because it's going to take us too long to do Arabic and English together. But he said, I mentioned bits and pieces. He said, Then Allah subhanaw taala rebuked man who thinks, and guesses that there is no one that has ability over him?

01:00:56--> 01:01:04

Or that the one who created him, has no ability over him, the one who created them in in this difficulty and this hardship

01:01:06--> 01:01:07

and the

01:01:09--> 01:01:12

strength of the things that he faces in this life.

01:01:14--> 01:01:19

For indeed the one who created him, is more deserving of being

01:01:20--> 01:01:43

powerful over him and has more deserving of being powerful over him if he created you and created all of this life and with all of its gathered its hardships and toil and she then not one is more deserving of being in control over you. A small is more likely to be a Lost Planet. Allah is the one who is in has this code or this power over you.

01:01:49--> 01:02:04

And then even will pay him he said, so how can he have power over others? If he doesn't even have power over himself? And he mankind is the advantage now. Okay, we pause for the other time.

01:02:06--> 01:02:08

Whenever at that time, we have time to pause. It's time

01:05:53--> 01:06:07

So he said this evidence on its own shows that Allah is the origin if Allah is the one who created you like that, that Allah is capable of giving you Recompense.

01:06:08--> 01:06:48

And it shows that Allah Subhana Allah has the attributes of complete power and complete knowledge. And then Allah azza wa jal further clarified this by saying, I am several and Lem Yoda, who does he believe that nobody sees him? So Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is able to count and enumerate all the things that that person did, whether good or bad, and he is able, the one who is able to take a person to account and to judge a person based on the good and the bad that they did. Then Allah subhanaw taala rebuke the man by saying you're cool, like to man and loboda

01:06:49--> 01:07:10

that I have wasted wealth piled upon itself. And it is the wealth that is piled up on top of each other. So this person took pride in wasting all of this wealth and spending it on things he was not allowed to spend it upon. If he had spent it upon the things he was supposed to, he would not have said,

01:07:11--> 01:07:12

I wasted it.

01:07:13--> 01:07:34

Rather, it would have been a means of nearness to Allah. And it would have been a means for Allah His pleasure and allows reward and that is not a lack, it's not destroying it or wasting it. So Allah subhanaw taala rebuked him, because of his pride in this man's pride that he spent all of this wealth in that which is

01:07:35--> 01:07:45

which is forbidden and the fact that this person turned away from a larger agenda in the way that he spent it. Then allies which i said i acceptable lm euro who I had

01:07:46--> 01:07:47

a lot so a gel

01:07:49--> 01:07:50

showed here

01:07:51--> 01:07:53

that that

01:07:57--> 01:08:22

and he does he believe and this is in the past. Does he believe that nobody saw him spending this wealth in Herat? That's why allies we just spoke about it in the in the past. I have several lm Yahoo I had. And he did that in the past. He thought nobody saw him spending this wealth. Then Alliance which I mentioned another evidence

01:08:24--> 01:08:28

that Allah subhanaw taala is more deserving of seeing him.

01:08:29--> 01:08:30

And

01:08:31--> 01:09:07

that is that Allah azza wa jal created two eyes by which this person can see. So how is it that Allah can give you two eyes and then Allah cannot see what you do? So benefit Okay, you mentioned from the ayah if Allah gave you your two eyes, so you can see how can you then believe that Allah can't see what you do? If Allah was able to give you your two eyes, is a lot more deserving of being able to see what it is that you do. And how is it that Allah azza wa jal can give you the ability to explain yourself through your lips and your tongue.

01:09:09--> 01:09:13

And so you are able to express what is in yourself

01:09:16--> 01:09:22

and then Allah azza wa jal then the person is able to command for things and so on.

01:09:24--> 01:09:27

Is it the case that this this person

01:09:29--> 01:09:59

or he says actually something very powerful where he said it he said we're healthcare Mr. Luma Hello key mooster third en el amin Kamali Holic, he said, when you see the perfection that exists within creation, does this not lead you to believe or to understand how perfect your Creator is? When you look at your ability to speak? Do you not think that Allah will give you revelation that is greater and more

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

eloquent and more clearly expressed in the speech that you have? Or does a person say that Allah gave me the ability to speak but then he says that Allah could not explain to me what I have to do.

01:10:11--> 01:10:21

Or does he say that Allah gave me site but Allah can't see what I do. This is rebuking the people of the mushrikeen, who used to say that we don't think that Allah sees much of what we do.

01:10:22--> 01:10:27

And the people who used to believe that there is no recompense, but they still believe Allah created them,

01:10:29--> 01:10:29

and so on.

01:10:36--> 01:10:44

And then he mentioned about the nudge Dain. He mentioned about the tree, the path to good and the path to evil.

01:10:46--> 01:11:00

Is that one who showed you the path of good and evil, not more deserving of having knowledge? In other words, when you know that Allah showed you the path of good and evil, does this not show you the complete knowledge of Allah azza wa jal?

01:11:02--> 01:11:47

And whether guided you to these two paths? How can it be that if Allah showed you the path of good in the path of evil that you've been left Sudan? You've been left without any guidance? How can you be left without any guidance? If Allah is the one who showed you the two paths? Allah azza wa jal showed you what harms you showed you what benefits you showed you what harms you in the dunya? And what benefits you in the dunya and showed you or harms you in the era? And what benefits you in the area or even the food you eat? What is poisonous and what is healthy? Allah showed you all of that. And then you think you've been left without guidance? So here I am. He says, How can it be? A person

01:11:47--> 01:12:22

believes that Allah has shown them the natural instinct, but Allah hasn't given them guidance. How can that be? A lush, Allah has showed you what's allowed to eat what's not allowed, made natural things for you. But then Allah hasn't given you any guidance. Can that be true? allies left you Sudan without anything just last week can't be true. If Allah has shown you what to eat and what not to eat, then Min babbie Allah it's more deserving that Allah has shown you who to worship and who not to worship.

01:12:25--> 01:13:09

And then he said, Well, honey Nobu, what rissalah illa, Li tech Meili, he dieting edge Dane, he said and was it not the case that Prophethood and messenger ship was sent to complete these two paths? In other words, complete the guidance to these two paths. So a person starts with instinct, right? fitrah like you have an idea, but that fitrah isn't enough. It isn't the end of the road. It just gets you started on the road. nobody uses fitrah as a delille which on its own delila Mr. Hill, nobody says For example, you have to become a Muslim. Why? Because it's natural.

01:13:11--> 01:13:13

Okay, but can you explain why not? That's it.

01:13:14--> 01:13:45

Now, it's not a daily Mr. Hill. It's a beginning. It starts you on a path. Okay. I agree with you naturally. Yes, it feels right. It looks right. It seems right. Then what you have and Nobu about rissalah. You have Prophethood and messenger ship lytec mi. l hedaya. In an HD. to guide you to complete which or a diet to niche Dane lol Najib Hidayat, an edge deign to show you which path is good, and which path is bad.

01:13:46--> 01:13:54

So now the when, again when you're talking to someone in a dour concept, or context. And someone says to you

01:13:55--> 01:13:56

that

01:13:57--> 01:14:04

you know, you started by showing them that it's natural to believe in God. It's natural, it's normal. It's fitrah.

01:14:05--> 01:14:10

But then you have to bring them something else you can't leave a day now you have to bring them

01:14:11--> 01:14:19

you have to bring them what was said by the prophets and the messengers. You have to bring them revelation why you have to bring them

01:14:20--> 01:14:33

meanness also hang the text of the Quran and the Sunnah. You can't leave them with just this idea that look you know, if you look at everything, if you look around you Okay, now you believe there's a creator Don't you want to worship Him? Okay, because

01:14:34--> 01:14:59

no, you can start someone off thinking about Look around you Wi Fi and footsy Come fly to perseroan look at your own self the signs of Alliance origin. Look at the heavens and the earth in a few healthy SMRT will have the walk the laughing What lately when in the heavens in the earth and the difference of the night and the day there are signs. Those signs are not in themselves, the only thing that you have, you have those signs and then you have a new

01:15:00--> 01:15:13

What risala Lee tech Neil Hidayat in each day, to finish what they started. You look at their heavens, you look at the stars. Like the argument Ibrahim made for his people.

01:15:16--> 01:15:59

For imagine Allah He later rah rah Coca Cola had a Rabi. When the night time came, he saw a star he said, This is my Lord. Fela FLR cola or Hippo affiliate when it went down, he said, I don't like things that go away and he my lord is not one who goes away. Well, Mr. camara, Basilan cola had Arabi. When he saw the moon come out, he said this is my Lord. Fela FLR cada Lamia in Europe Bella akuna, nominal calm and Bali said if Allah doesn't guide me, my lord doesn't guide me I'm going to become from the misguided people. But Mr. Shem says if I can call ahead or behind the act, but when he saw the sun bright, he said, This is my Lord. This is bigger, greater

01:16:00--> 01:16:41

Phelim ephorate Kalia comi in Liberty mementos record in Nigeria to watch a healing Edie Falco SMRT will have the hanifa woman and Amina machine. When the sun disappeared, he said, Oh my people I have dedicated my worship to Allah alone. By the way, this was not the belief of Ibrahim this was only for the purpose of in the purpose of argument. 10 Brahim is saying that you look at the stars you believe it's your law, but the star goes away, the moon goes away, the sun goes away. This is naturally leads you to believe Okay, I need to worship something that doesn't go away. Then what happens? Then comes revelation. And revelation completes the job.

01:16:43--> 01:16:48

Li a corner in nursery Allah, that the people don't have any hope,

01:16:49--> 01:16:57

any evidence, any argument against the law after the prophets and the messengers. That's one of the benefits that he that he mentioned.

01:16:59--> 01:17:01

So after he mentioned this benefit,

01:17:02--> 01:17:14

he said, this is evidence This is all evidence for the existence of the Creator and his perfect attributes. And the truth of his messengers and their promise.

01:17:15--> 01:17:27

is a very, very nice what he said fidella hada kulu Allah is bad in Hollywood he was he fatty he was he fatica Lee, he was it purusha di, D.

01:17:28--> 01:17:39

All of these things that are mentioned is an evidence that the creator exists, that he has perfect attributes, and that the prophets were truthful and the promise of a lie is truthful.

01:17:40--> 01:17:41

He said

01:17:42--> 01:18:22

these are the soul of your Eman the foundations of your Eman that all of the prophets agreed upon mean a wealthy him either at him from the first of them to the last of them. And if a person thinks about their situation and how they were created, they will find it from the greatest of evidences for the correctness of what the prophets said. And to confirm any one confirms the other right? You have. Now if a person just looks at themselves and how they were created, this is from the clearest of evidences for the truth of the religion of Islam and worshipping Allah azza wa jal alone.

01:18:26--> 01:18:32

He said so it would be enough for a person to think about himself and how he was created.

01:18:33--> 01:19:10

He said photography and insan ficolo to who VFC healthy. If a person just thinks about himself and how he was created, that would be enough for him. What Rousseau worry through mosaic Karina Bhima Phil fitri well rakul mcmillion Allahu the prophets were sent to remind you have your fitrah and to remind you of what your intellect understood, when you just looked at yourself and how you were created, you understood you have a creator, the prophets were sent to remind you and to complete the job. Complete the message.

01:19:12--> 01:19:24

Yeah, to finish off the message, that message, it wasn't complete. It gave you a start. Okay, I have a creator. Just by looking at the stars and the sun in the moon. You can see I have a creator

01:19:25--> 01:19:28

and it's not the star. It's not the sun. It's not the moon but now I need

01:19:29--> 01:19:32

to complete it I need something I need

01:19:35--> 01:19:42

something to command I need to complete it to bring it back together now. So the messengers come and they complete the message for you.

01:19:46--> 01:19:59

And then he said Lita, Khulna lol Abdi Hojae to law, Be Fit rotti here, what is it? He said so that the person that evidence the argument is complete against them.

01:20:00--> 01:20:02

Through the fitrah, and through the rusada,

01:20:03--> 01:20:30

through the fitrah, and the rusada. And this, by the way, is a strong evidence in responding to the way of the mortality mean, the philosophers and the people of rhetoric as it relates to proving Allah's existence. We don't prove existence through logic, you only need two things. To prove that you have to worship Allah, you prove it through the person's fitrah. And through the result.

01:20:31--> 01:20:34

That's the digital law and fitrah

01:20:39--> 01:20:47

the revelation that's what you need to need to draw somebody a diagram. And you don't need to bring logic into it.

01:20:49--> 01:21:14

And you don't need to talk about how to sell edge Sam or anything like this, that all of this kind of stuff, you don't need it you only need to talk about a person's nature and their message. That's it. Allah azza wa jal established his evidence against people through the fitrah. And through the risala, through their nature, and through the message.

01:21:16--> 01:21:26

And then he said, Well, marhaba for comet, la, la, you heard Jetro. And with these two things, the evidence was established against them.

01:21:29--> 01:21:34

And when this evidence was established against this person, they still didn't try to cross that mountain path

01:21:36--> 01:21:38

that was between them and between their Lord.

01:21:40--> 01:21:43

That the person will not reach their Lord until they cross it

01:21:45--> 01:21:47

and they cross it by freeing a slave

01:21:48--> 01:22:27

and that is to free them from slavery so that Allah will free them from the slavery of themselves and the slavery of the enemy. Oftentimes they will okay Adam says things that are life just amazes you. He said you hola so Hola. Marikina FC he wore a T i do way to Allah takes you away from if you can free a slave Allah will free you from the slavery of yourself and the slavery of the Shabbat. We said ignore claims poetry in his Nia he said horrible men are represented the Holy akula hufa barbaric NFC or Shivani. They ran away from the slavery they were created for and they became slaves to themselves and slaves to the shaytaan.

01:22:29--> 01:22:34

So if a person frees someone from slavery, in reality, they're freeing themselves from slavery.

01:22:36--> 01:22:43

They're freeing themselves from the slavery of themselves, the slavery of the soul jealousy and being attached to your wealth.

01:22:44--> 01:23:02

Abdu denari, but did on the worship of the dinar and the dead. They're freeing themselves from that by the permission of Allah. By freeing the slave they freed themselves from the slavery of the Allah frees them from the slavery of themselves in the slavery of their enemies. And when they feed the poor person, the miskeen on a day of poverty

01:23:04--> 01:23:34

and with sincerity to Allah, because condition of good deeds is Allah colossal, when metabo you have to do so you have to be sincere. And you have to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if a person does this, with sincerity to Allah, that is the pure rights of Allah, and believes in what Allah has informed them, and a base align what has they have been commanded to do, and seeks the face of Allah, and advises others

01:23:36--> 01:23:36

and

01:23:39--> 01:24:28

and he advises others, to advise them with righteousness and mercy, and accept the advice of the people who advise them, and is patient and merciful in themselves, helpful towards other people to be patient and merciful. So whoever doesn't cross this mountain path, and dies without a tree without going over it, and dies, disconnected from their Lord, then this is the person who is not going to reach him and the person who is my jewel Ben and who, who is concealed from him. And the people are of two types. One who is saved. And this person is the one who crossed over the mountain path and became from the people who who reach the other side of it,

01:24:30--> 01:24:42

reach the other side of it. And the other category is the one who is destroyed. And this is the one who dies without crossing over that mountain path. We're home accidental Hulk and they are the majority of the people

01:24:43--> 01:24:47

and nobody crosses over this path except for

01:24:48--> 01:24:54

the believers that people have success. Because it is a hard path.

01:24:55--> 01:25:00

He says it is a hard path siok has difficult

01:25:00--> 01:25:04

He's on it. Nobody can cross it except for the one who is happy for luck.

01:25:05--> 01:25:07

It's amazing when he said he said,

01:25:08--> 01:25:25

he said, Leia claro her in her FIFA body. The only one who can cross over this mountain is one who's not carrying too much weight. Slight light in there. Wait, what does he mean by that? light in the sense?

01:25:26--> 01:25:29

Well, homea merona Azam Allahu

01:25:30--> 01:25:44

Allah sama zero, they're holding their sins upon their back. Someone who has so many sins on their back, they can't cross over this path. The only way you cross a mountain is if you're lightweight, you can't cross a mountain if you're big and heavy.

01:25:45--> 01:25:52

And we're not big and heavy. We're not talking about how much food you eat, but you're big and heavy with sins, you've got too many sins, you can't cross that path.

01:25:54--> 01:26:23

You can't cross that path. Then he said well, whom I was horrible mean manner. They are the people of the right hand side. And those people who are destroyed without crossing over the path. They didn't believe in what they were told. And they didn't be the command that they were given. They are as hobbled mesh, enter, they are the people of the left and the Hellfire will be closed upon them and it will be closed upon them and they will not be able to go out from it.

01:26:24--> 01:26:36

As he said, Come out Berkut la him a man who lay well at par dot L bartylla. l Moana De Lima, Bharat bu sola.

01:26:38--> 01:26:42

He said, just like their hearts were sealed.

01:26:43--> 01:26:47

Just like their hearts were sealed by misguidance

01:26:49--> 01:27:09

and false beliefs. It's a car that bartylla evil beliefs and false beliefs that went against what the messengers said. So the Hellfire will be sealed upon them the way that their hearts were sealed. And the way that their hearts were sealed with false beliefs and evil actions, the Hellfire will be sealed upon them in that way,

01:27:11--> 01:27:53

and in this way, it will be sealed upon them in the fire will be sealed upon them. So their bodies will not be able to ever go out from it. And then he said for to M Alhaji his surah Allah t sorry ha wiremesh tema de la Hee min ma polishable l me well, Eamon will be late tofield. He said so think about the surah that is so short, is very short. But look at all of the knowledge and Eman that is found within it. And success is from Allah. This is just a part of what you cannot pay him he said about this particular which you cannot pay him said about this particular surah

01:27:59--> 01:28:00

this topic

01:28:01--> 01:28:04

it tells us actually something that last statement.

01:28:05--> 01:28:22

It tells us something quite important. Generally the soldiers that are in Jerusalem, the small kisara SWAT, the Small Soldiers or casado Mufasa the small Mufasa soldiers the small sores with the short irons generally the meanings are very deep.

01:28:24--> 01:28:31

That doesn't mean the meanings are not deep in salted Baccarat, so alum Ron, but there is more, there is a difference in style.

01:28:32--> 01:28:38

The style of of the longer solarized is more of an explanation.

01:28:39--> 01:28:50

More detail. And the style of the soul is induced ama is a very, very short ayat that have lots of meanings behind them.

01:28:51--> 01:29:05

So this is something to pay attention to. It doesn't mean that the whole when we make the Tafseer we finished the Tafseer of the that it will always be like if sobre el Bella took us for tight for lessons. It doesn't mean that necessarily sort of Bukhara will take 400

01:29:07--> 01:29:46

it's not but but what happens is these are the schools which have lots of meanings in very short space, which is probably why one of the reasons why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to read them a lot in the Salah. We know that right? The Prophet slicin he used to lead the people with emphasis on the soldiers with the short ayat. So he used to lead the people with the wild Mufasa and pisarra Mufasa. So the long ones like Sora cough, and the short ones like sort of nurse and sort of fella, but what's the benefit? the ayat are very short, but the meanings are very, very deep.

01:29:47--> 01:29:58

So a person can memorize just a small amount, but can get all of the meanings of the Quran are found in these Mufasa soul as the whole like a summary

01:29:59--> 01:29:59

of the Quran.

01:30:00--> 01:30:02

And what did we say about sort of 30?

01:30:03--> 01:30:06

We said soul to 30. What is a summary of the Quran

01:30:08--> 01:30:23

when we did this of zero through 30, we said sort of 230 is a summary of the Quran. The whole Quran can be summarized in saltwater. So it's like one summarizing the other one summarizing the other.

01:30:24--> 01:30:27

So choose the AMA is like a summary for the Quran.

01:30:28--> 01:30:46

And it brings most many and most of the topics that are dealt with in the Quran, but with very, very short is, so that takes a lot of it takes a lot of time to go into it. And we change I mean, we don't go into so much detail every time we depends on the topic. Did you have a question?

01:30:48--> 01:30:49

So tell us

01:30:50--> 01:30:52

what did the chef say about sort of,

01:30:53--> 01:31:01

if this was the only surah that was revealed to the people, it would be enough for them, meaning a chef, he saw sort of tell us that his summarize the whole of Islam

01:31:03--> 01:31:14

will answer in the in Santa Fe also, in larina, M and wiremu, Swati hearty what's also been happy with our Samba Samba share for us to see, this is Islam, the whole of Islam is here.

01:31:15--> 01:31:17

This is all of the Quran can be found in this.

01:31:18--> 01:31:22

So this is why the schools have a lot of meanings. Yes, we had some questions on YouTube.

01:31:34--> 01:31:38

Yes, definitely. This is a very good question. Makes you put it that question on the screen.

01:31:40--> 01:32:14

When you're giving data to people, you call them people to allies. So again, you need to stay upon the methodology of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because there was a bad right that was an act of worship. What a bad utopia. A bad has to be done the way you be shown. You can't do a bad however you like. We're gonna pray salata Russia in five minutes to Sharla. When we praise Allah Teresa, we're not going to pretend rock at Sharla. We're going to pray for la carte. Why? Because that's a bother to talk to you via a bother you have to do it the way you've been shown you can't do it how you like

01:32:16--> 01:32:17

you have to do it the way you've been shown.

01:32:18--> 01:32:20

So likewise, data is the same.

01:32:21--> 01:32:40

And so when you go into deep theological debate, to be honest, you don't benefit anybody. You don't benefit people. What you need to do is to stick to the methodology of the Quran. So I remember I've said this before, but I asked I asked this question. Better hurry, though last year, I said to him,

01:32:42--> 01:32:45

regarding how much should you use logic when giving that one?

01:32:46--> 01:32:51

I said to him shift, how much should we use logic when we get down?

01:32:52--> 01:33:07

To what extent Shall we use ideally achillea like logical proofs. And what he said to me and paraphrasing is that you need to use the idealer the evidences which are logical within the Quran.

01:33:10--> 01:33:12

The idealer which are,

01:33:13--> 01:33:33

are clear, but they idealize Sharia, their ideal leather is mentioned in the Quran. As for a person who uses the evidences which are logical, but they came from Plato and Aristotle and the Greeks and the Romans and the Christians and the Jews, this person will never be successful in the dour.

01:33:34--> 01:33:39

They can probably write a doctorate thesis but what law he they will never be successful in the dour. Never, ever, ever.

01:33:40--> 01:33:55

They will not be successful, this deep theology, theological discussions and debates and whatever, you don't need it. Look at comparative religion this person comes I tell you 5000 things about your religion. I don't need to know 5000 things about the battle. I just need to know one thing about the hack.

01:33:57--> 01:34:35

I don't need to know this comparative religion. Yeah, it's okay. You know, leave a few people have expertise in it when it's needed. But for every diet, to know everything about Hinduism will lie here if you ask him shrauta Salah like he doesn't know them. He doesn't know how to pray. But he knows enough about Hinduism that he could teach the Hindu priest how to pray. And he doesn't want law. He doesn't know how to resolve it. And he says this is terrible. Well, let's not doubt the person who ignores Plato and Aristotle and quotes about the Greeks and the Romans and the Indian philosophers. I will lie if you ask him La Ilaha in the light doesn't know it. So how are you going

01:34:35--> 01:34:35

to give doubt?

01:34:36--> 01:34:59

The Prophet slicin was not taught about Judaism and Christianity. He was not given the Torah to be recited to him. He was not given the scriptures of the people who was given the Quran. So you limit yourself to the evidences that are logical in the Quran. The chef give example, he said for example, and fully accumulate the shade am woman Harlequin am holla to sumati will out Bella

01:35:00--> 01:35:33

nor were they created from nothing or did they create themselves? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather they are not certain This is a logical evidence, but it's ideal at one minute ideological aquileia to Sharia. The evidence that is logical, but it's found in the Quran that's what a person should limit themselves last last last one. What was the argument they were discussing? What were they? Sorry they figured it out. Should we just summarize for them that Elijah mentioned the creation of man from water and from to rob and from clean?

01:35:34--> 01:35:57

Yeah, Allah mentioned the creation of man from ma water to rob dust and clean which is clay how do we bring it together? mix water industrial get clear. That's how that's it. It's very simple The only the two they don't contradict themselves any all of those three come together, clean his mouth tore up.

01:36:16--> 01:36:29

Generally when when this last question we do is because time for Salah, but generally when the Quran when Allah azza wa jal speaks about the disbelievers. The it's not speaking about the disbelievers in the past,

01:36:30--> 01:37:00

is speaking about those people who are disbelievers at this moment, like as in when allied addresses the disbelievers kulia your healthcare if you don't say oh, you who disbelieve because at the end of the day, this is her Jetta Allahu Bella. This is Allah as proof that Allah has sent down to mankind right to show them what is right and what is wrong. But yes, there are examples given of people in the past. And there are examples of how the Sahaba used to be, for example, the statement of Eliza gel

01:37:02--> 01:37:12

with Kuru Naira Matala here are they call it quantum either and for lF Urbina. khudobin a spat on venier Mati whiner

01:37:13--> 01:37:17

and you remember the grace of Allah upon you when you were

01:37:18--> 01:37:22

all enemies to each other and then you became brothers. As for this ayah

01:37:23--> 01:37:42

well Latina Kapha will be IR Tina is not the same person. It's not the same person is contrasting the two contrasting the US hubballi amine and us herbal Mishima the people on the right and the people on the left. That's what Allah made easy for us to mention allies with generals vessel salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad. While early he was happy
