alameen wa Salatu was salam, ala Atilla he was solina v you know Mohammed Wyler early he was happy he edged marrying a llama eliminare mo foreigner. One foreigner vema and them Turner. Was it in a Eggman here hi Yo Yo Kai you.

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

We ask Allah azza wa jal after praising him asking Allah to exalt the mentioning grand peace tell messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to his family and his companions, we asked a lot of teachers what will benefit us and to benefit us with what he teaches us and to increase us in knowledge.

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

This is the first proper lesson

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

which we're going to be doing in this Masjid on a Friday in relation to Tafseer. The previous lesson was just a recap or an introduction. And inshallah Allah, we're going to move on to the next surah in the series, if anyone's wondering where the other ones have gone, that is sort of Fatiha, and then nurse alfalah, left last tab, Bharatiya Abbey, the heavy wiretap and so on, those were done in debate. And you can find those on youtube.com forward slash Mohammed Tim, that's me, he double m EDTA m, you can find it on there and you can watch the other the Tafseer of the other sources from there in short a long time. So we're not going to take too long shout out to Allah we're going to

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

try to finish within about half an hour. And today we have the tip CEO of Komodo castle.

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

And her Komodo castle.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

had zero tumor powder,

00:02:03--> 00:02:23

kill solfatara Moon, some Kela solfatara, moon, Cal, lo Tyler, Mona Emily are clean. Let her own jehane some mulata, wouldn't I in eliakim, some mellitus, I don't know yo ma even, I'm in nine.

00:02:25--> 00:02:36

So the very first thing we're going to talk about is the name of the sore. So it's well known and it's huge. Most people know it as Sora to take hassle.

00:02:38--> 00:02:41

Because this is a word which is

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

unique to the surah or its prominent in the Surah Al her como castle.

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

So for that reason, it's most commonly known among the majority as sort of a Catholic.

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

And we're going to come to what Attica means inshallah with Allah as we go through the explanation, but that's one of the names. The other name that it's known by is Surah Al hakam.

00:03:11--> 00:03:34

Because that's the first word in the solar, right, so it's known as surah, Al hakam. And like we said, we could give an example, sort of method is also known as surah, Tibet, Yoda, Abdullah, Heaven, whatever, and so on. Sometimes they're known by the first ayah. And they have their own name as well. So it's known as similar to the castle and it's known as Surah Al Comm.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

It's also said

00:03:39--> 00:03:51

that it's known as Seurat will knock Bara, the surah of the cemetery. And that is because this is also a prominent word in the surah.

00:03:53--> 00:04:39

had to resort to more macabre, macabre is the plural and the singular is maqbara, the grave or the cemetery. So here, it's also said, although not very, it's not a very famous name for it. But it said that one of the names and it says some of the Sahaba of the Allah at home used to call it sort of macabre. But this requires maybe some more research into who said it and whether it's authentic or not, but that's perhaps a third name, you might hear for the Surah Surah is makia. It was revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was in Makkah in the Macan period that is the first 13 years of his prophethood Salalah le he wasn't

00:04:41--> 00:04:48

Allah azza wa jal begins the surah Allah has come and how can we travel?

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

So here

00:04:51--> 00:04:55

al hakam. So really, really interesting word.

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

And what's interesting about it is there's a superficial translation

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

And there's a deep translation. So the superficial translation of lol comm is Ash holla comm it made you busy. You became busy, you became preoccupied, and busy.

00:05:13--> 00:05:27

That's fine. And that's what the word means. That's why if you look in a simple translation, it will say, you have become preoccupied with a tech cathode. We're coming to California in a minute, you've become preoccupied and busy

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

with tech hassle.

00:05:32--> 00:05:39

But actually, the word aloha come where does it come from? A comes from the Arabic word level.

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

And if you frequently read the Quran, you hear two words come together.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

Woman higher to dunya, Illa, Allah or even whatever

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

the world, the life the life of this world is nothing more than light. And now these two words come together a lot larger level. So in here the word level is used.

00:06:02--> 00:06:31

It's allow for you. So what's the difference between these two words? And what can we learn from it? Many of the scholars they said Allahu is when your heart becomes busy with something. And alarie joking around and playing around, is when your limbs become busy with something or preoccupied with something. So if somebody is always playing football, we've got the video on so we'll have to say soccer for those people who don't understand what football is

00:06:32--> 00:06:43

an A never ever concerned with their religion, we call this lab they're playing around. When someone's heart is attached to something, we call it low,

00:06:44--> 00:06:53

when their heart and that's why often the words related to sort of music and people who are obsessed with it, and they're listening to it instead of the core. And we call it level.

00:06:55--> 00:07:09

Because their heart is attached to it. It's their heart that's connected to it. So now we need to just before we come back to this, we need to talk about a ticker thought. So I take out four comes from the Arabic word kefir, or kathira. a lot.

00:07:11--> 00:07:38

And the word Taka for kind of indicates that whatever this thing of a lot is, it's kind of a mutual thing. It's kind of 10 out because you're competing with each other in El keturah, in getting lots and lots, you're competing with each other, and we get that from the tech for that gives us the meaning of attend Air Force of competition and fighting with each other

00:07:39--> 00:08:23

in Al Qaeda, in getting lots and lots of things. Now here, many of the scholars of Islam talk about naturally money, right? You have because your hearts have become preoccupied with competing, competing with each other, for worldly gains for money. But that's not actually the meaning here, the meaning here takato doesn't mention money at all, even though money is the first thing that comes to mind. To castle is anything in which people compete with each other for Catherine to have a lot of it.

00:08:25--> 00:09:01

And here the competition, it has to be maximum blameworthy not praiseworthy. So we can't say competing with each other for beneficial knowledge, competing with each other in South Africa, competing with each other for righteous actions. We can't say this. Why? Because Allah said Al hakam, your heart became preoccupied with it instead of Islam and instead of what matters, and instead of what Allah has commanded you to do your hearts become preoccupied. So this has to be it can be anything people compete with to get lots of, but it has to be something blameworthy.

00:09:02--> 00:09:19

In the sense that competing for it, and your heart becoming attached to it is blameworthy. So let's just start by talking about money. And here is where the word al hakam really comes into play. Because as we said, Al hakam is when your heart becomes busy with it.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

And you can have somebody who is completely bankrupt, roofless bankrupt doesn't have anything. By His heart is full of money. His hands empty miskeen scheme, poor guy, his hand is empty. His heart is full of money to the point there is no space left for anything else. How am I going to get it? How am I going to do this, how I get it? What will happen when I'm rich, and his heart is just full of competing with the next person and the next person in gathering together money. And that's why the word allow can be so relevant here.

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

Because it doesn't matter whether he is rich or poor, he can still be from those people about whom Allah said Allah Kamata careful, because it's hot became busy with it. His heart is constantly preoccupied with getting more of everything

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

and competing with other people because the word takato indicates that kind of competition,

00:10:26--> 00:10:31

competing with each other in getting more IE having more than the other one.

00:10:33--> 00:11:20

And there are many many narrations about this perhaps one we can mention is the hadith of Abdullah, the ambassador of your love and rumor, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, can I live in the ad Mr. De Malin lebreton hearth, Lisa Oh come up called sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if the children or if the son of Adam had two valleys of wealth, he would wish for a third. That's the meaning of alchemy to Catholic to the point that there is a an ayah in the Quran, like this, which is men so hot. It's abrogated. Now a lot of people maybe you heard this word before abrogated. Maybe you came across it before. But there are different types of abrogation not too much

00:11:20--> 00:12:04

right now. But just to meet the meaning of this one is, it was an ayah that used to be recited. But it's no longer recited in the Quran as the problem when the Prophet size and passed away the Quran that he he recited it in the earlier period, but then he didn't, it became it no longer became it, it was no longer part of the Quran that he recited at the end of his life. That's one kind of abrogation. And the other kind is when the eye is there, but the ruling goes away. So the eye is still there. And we still recite the ayah today, but the ruling has been replaced with another ruling. And that's not surprising because I lost it man and Salomon at OSI hat net to be hiding

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

minha obviously,

00:12:06--> 00:12:51

we do not cause an AI to be abrogated, or to be forgotten, except that we bring equal to it or we've been better than it or equal to it. So that is something which happened in the Quran during the life of the Prophet slicin. So let's not confuse afterwards and start talking about if they were abrogated when earthman wrote the must have is nothing like that. This is something that during the life of the Prophet sighs and he used to recite, and then he stopped reciting it. But the ruling here remained and it was similar to this to do with the children of Adam wishing for another Valley. And then when Allah revealed Allah como tech, I thought the Prophet size and stop to reciting the

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

other ayah Allah como Catholic.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

Now we say that the castle here

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

it doesn't have to be

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

related to wealth, and that was the statement of injury and of poverty, even Kathy, even Okay, him or him omala. They said in anything, even in children, people compete

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

in terms of who can have who has the most offspring who has the most number of boys who has all these things that people compete, people even compete. When it comes to religious things without seeking the face of Allah. For example, people competing for knowledge for knowledge sake, oh, I have a doctorate I have, you know, I have a professorship, I have three, I have four I have this, God even buying books. I have more books than you my but I collect Rare Books, anything people collect and compete with each other in that takes them away from a lot because remember, we said it has to be blameworthy. That's why a law said, Come otherwise, it would be there are things you can

00:13:58--> 00:14:16

compete with that are praiseworthy, or there are things you can gather that are praiseworthy, but here we're talking about the blameworthy things. So somebody and and one of them is shy, he gave a beautiful, beautiful example. He said competing for followers on social media.

00:14:18--> 00:14:36

And I think that is an absolutely amazing, amazing example of how Kamata Can you become preoccupied competing with numbers, who has more, that's what takato means competing as to who has more,

00:14:37--> 00:15:00

who's got more followers, who's got more likes, who's got more views. And this could even happen to the Taliban, to the scholar to the chef to the diarrhea to the student, to the righteous person that they become so busy with, I want more. How many people came to your class, how many people came to your class, just competing for numbers. And as soon as you start competing

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

For numbers, and the numbers matter to you, instead of what is with Allah, you fall under this ayah Allah Kota Catholic

00:15:10--> 00:15:33

in whatever those numbers are, could be your education could be grades competing for who got the most nines or at GCSE, who got this competing anything that people compete with that takes you away from Allah as origin. And it's a kind of a level it makes your heart busy with that thing instead of

00:15:34--> 00:15:41

what it is that you're supposed to be busy with another example I really liked from a takeaway for his attacker so

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

Phil hedge

00:15:45--> 00:15:56

in hedge, can you imagine that? I made hedge 12 times I made hedge 14 times I made hedge 21 times people competing with each other.

00:15:57--> 00:16:02

In the number of times they made Hajj one My God, what will make you know that even one was accepted?

00:16:03--> 00:16:18

competing with each other? And sometimes, you know, not even asking what's the wealth halaal just computer competition that takes you away from Allah. So don't think it should only be money and it should only be the dunya It can even be the dean but in a way that's blameworthy.

00:16:19--> 00:16:37

It's not about numbers. And our religion is not about numbers. That's why the prophets I said when he said were to nebby that there will be a prophet that will come Yokoyama well a seminar who, and there'll be nobody who answered his color all

00:16:38--> 00:17:03

that profit will be better than you better than me better than all of those do art and scholars better than those people who have got 100,000 shot people accepted Islam at their hands. And that profit is better than all of them. And yet no body and city school. Nobody well a samurai who are hurt. Nobody came with him at all.

00:17:04--> 00:17:16

So don't think our Deen is not about numbers our data our is not about numbers. The way we tell people about Islam, it's not about numbers. Sometimes people say that to how many Shahada is have you taken?

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

Like that, that question it? It pains me? And if someone says that to you say to them and how can we take careful?

00:17:25--> 00:17:34

Does the number matter? Or does it matter which one was accepted by Allah? Does it matter? How many of them stayed Muslim? Does it matter? How many of them

00:17:35--> 00:18:02

did did that benefit you? Did they like accept from you and and put it on your account for your makia. So none of this thing don't just think about the dunya it's about anything in which people compete for numbers. Instead of or at the expense of the religion of Allah, Islam and sincerity to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Kuma castle had zero to one mockup.

00:18:04--> 00:18:19

Until, and I'm going to tell you the literal translation first and then we'll go into what it means until you visit the graves until you visit the graves. We visit the cemeteries

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

until you visit the graves.

00:18:24--> 00:18:35

Most of the scholars, the vast majority of the scholars, they said that the meaning of visit the graves means that you die and you are buried in the graveyard in the cemetery.

00:18:37--> 00:19:19

But then it comes to question why did Allah describe it as zR visiting? That makes strange right? Like if it was visiting the graves like like you and me, we go to the graveyard and we remember death. And then we come back. But the overwhelming majority of the scholars have tipsy they said that's not the meaning of the ayah. Here, the meaning of the ayah had telzio tomakomai their meaning until you die and you are buried in the graves. So why did Allah call ziana? Why did Allah say you are visiting the graveyard to show the temporary nature of the time that you're there. And the fact that even though you're buried in that grief, and even though there's been people buried in their

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

graves since the time of

00:19:22--> 00:19:31

release Salaam, since the time after Adam and a Salaam there's been people buried in their graves and still a lot of terms it's era a quick visit

00:19:32--> 00:19:45

in comparison to the length of the kiama the length of everlasting life, in gender, or in the fire when areas will be learned we asked was refuge from that.

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

So Allah COVID ze Allah because it's very temporary. It's very temporary. And there are some other opinions about that. Some of the scholars they said the meaning of the Z out of the visiting

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

Is that the people even compete regarding the dead, some of them said this. So they go to the graveyard and say see all of the martyrs. Most of them are from my tribe, we have more martyrs in our tribe than you have in your tribe. We have more Muslims buried here than you do. More of my relatives passed away in Islam than yours did. Some of them said that they even compete in the dead. They finished competing in the dunya. They finished competing in what doesn't benefit from the insincere actions in the religion until they even competed with each other. In with dead people with regard to dead people. We have more, you know, history than this. We had more of these people than

00:20:43--> 00:21:00

you. We had more O'Mara more leaders, more princes in our family than you did, and so on. But the majority said, No, it means until you pay that temporary short visit, that is to be buried in the graveyard.

00:21:01--> 00:21:28

And this gives us a really, really clear lesson, which is that for all you compete with each other in the dunya. And for all, some people have lots of money, and some people don't have much money at all. But when you go to the graveyard, when you visit the graveyard and you pass away and your body is taken there, everything is the same. Don't get anything different to anyone else.

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

The graveyard is the same graveyard.

00:21:33--> 00:21:37

The place where you are buried is the same size grave.

00:21:38--> 00:21:41

The sheet that you're wrapped in is the same kind of sheet that everybody else is wrapped in

00:21:43--> 00:22:16

the people who you know, the way people behave, and the things people do the same for everybody. So the thing which cuts off the Tucker thought, they're constantly competing with each other, that I've got more than you you've got more than me, and so on, is when you're buried in the grave, and you see that everybody is exactly the same, and there's no difference between them. And in reality, the person who had a lot of wealth was just a custodian for that wealth, really, they didn't actually did that wealth. I mean, one of the machines, he said very, very beneficial point.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

One a very beneficial point, he said, he said,

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

you know, for all these people gather all of this wealth, but there comes a point when you can't really do much more with it, you know, you can only drive one car at a time, can only wear one set of clothing at a time, can only wear one pair of shoes at a time, can only sleep in one bed at a time. It comes to a point where all of this competition, it doesn't. You know it doesn't benefit. And yet you still see people who say when I reach this amount, I'll stop. And that's one of the one of the things about MacArthur about competing for numbers is you never ever stop. If you get into that habit, you never ever stop to look, you know, when I get to this amount, I'm going to stop, I'm

00:23:02--> 00:23:40

gonna stop, I'm going to stop competing. I'm going to slow down, maybe think about my Dean, think about learning Islam, maybe think about memorizing Quran. But you see, it gets to a million he wants to, he gets to two he wants 10 he gets to 10 he wants 100 he gets to 100 he wants a billion. And he doesn't stop. Because you look at the billionaires who are out there, have they stopped? Did any of them very rarely do any? Does anyone stop and say that's it? I've done enough of the Catholic. It just doesn't stop hacked, as Dr. macabre until that person is buried in the grief. And then they realize that actually they were just a custodian, because most of that money will pass on to

00:23:40--> 00:24:12

somebody else. Most of it they couldn't benefit from it. How much can you actually personally benefit from in any one particular time. And in reality, it you're just holding it in order to give it to somebody else who's going to come along after you. And the reality of that is seen when the person is buried in the grave. And the relative squabble over who gets the wealth and the wealth just passes on from one person to another and how much did that person really use, you know, on a day to day basis for themselves.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

Kelly Keller solfatara Mone

00:24:17--> 00:24:59

from Keller solfatara Moon Eliza Jen said Keller Keller here we said again, is that a word, which means it has Zajonc in it. It's a rebuke. It's a rebuke from Allah. So it's not a word like just no. Keller is a word that contains a rebuke no way you're wrong. Contains that kind of rebuke Keller noi self attack, you're going to come to know the reality of what the reality of that Tucker thought that you wasted your life with. In salt Alaska we we mentioned in Tafseer that the only thing you really

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Have as a guarantee in terms of the only thing you really have, that you can really trade with and do business with is the number of breaths that you have those limited fixed number of breaths, that allies or gel is given to every person, you don't know how many you have. But whatever is written for you, that's your grace. And then that's what you have to trade that you're, you know, that's the money that your capital that you have to actually invest in and work with. Ultimately, in reality, when someone dies, or when someone sees that, and the person is taken to the graveyard, the person will come to know they'll come to know the reality of all of that gathering and hoarding that they

00:25:43--> 00:25:43

did.

00:25:44--> 00:25:52

Then Allah azza wa jal said some Kela solfatara Moon, Suma is a word which means then again

00:25:54--> 00:26:03

and then nor you will surely come to know. So, why did Allah azza wa jal repeat this twice?

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

Bear in mind there is a rule we have a very hard and fast rule there is no repetition in the Quran.

00:26:13--> 00:26:52

Okay, one says that's a difficult one because for example, for the a rugby coma to cap the band comes a lot of times right in solo man, how can you say there's no repetition we mean, there is no repetition for repetition sake, there are no words that mean the same thing one is another is equals there is doesn't exist, every single one is mentioned for a separate benefit, which is different to the benefit of the first. So every time for B a or b comma to cut the band comes in soda rock man, every meaning is different from the other one.

00:26:53--> 00:26:58

I either the purpose the reason behind it, the benefit from it is different in every single one.

00:27:00--> 00:27:08

And that is because the Quran is the most pure and the most eloquent of language. And one of the conditions of eloquence is you don't waste words.

00:27:10--> 00:27:41

So Allah azza wa jal doesn't waste words and doesn't repeat words, except for a clear need. That is there and a clear reason and interpretation. Each one has its own benefit and its own reason for it. So for example, in Spider Man, when each one comes, each one connects to denying the blessing that Allah mentioned before it, for example. So why here are these two things mentioned, there are two opinions, some of the scholars of Tafseer day said

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

some of the scholars of Tafseer

00:27:47--> 00:28:33

they said this is a style of Arabic that the Arabs used. And remember, the Quran is in classical Arabic, right. So one of the styles of Arabic. And that style of Arabic is whenever the Arabs wanted to do something we call tonkolili. They wanted to really, you know, to really hammer the point home and really show how serious it was, they would say twice. That's the style of Arabic that existed prior to the revelation of the Quran, that they're that important and so on, that when they wanted to really hammer a point home, they would repeat it, they would repeat it twice. The other opinion and this is the opinion of

00:28:34--> 00:29:21

an Imam Look at him or him love to Allah. Before him. It's the opinion of Hassan Bosley and others is that the first one Kela solfatara Moon it refers to, at the moment of death, that while the person is dying, they realize the reality of all that gathering and competing for numbers and hoarding that they had, they realize it when they die. And the second time they realize it is when they are in the grave, when they are taken out of the grave and so on. In other words, there are two times when it when they realize the reality of the wealth they hoarded when they are dying. And when they enter into the life of the bottles afterlife of the grave. And others they said it's not like

00:29:21--> 00:29:59

that rather what it is, is it is a style of Arabic, whereby to emphasize a point and to drive it home. You mentioned that point twice, once and then again with summer. And that's a style of Arabic which is is intended for emphasis. Even okay him or him allowed to add a strongly preferred the second that the two are different based upon the principle that I told you that, generally speaking, we take the principle that every idea has its own unique Tafseer even if the words are repeated, and if you guys go to the video on salto Kathy rune

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

We talk a lot about that in sort of caffeine which we had done the Tafseer. I've already

00:30:07--> 00:30:11

Kela low tide Ala Moana ame eliakim

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

Ken lello tarraleah Mona Emily.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

Again Keller comes again, again rebuking them, rebuking them for that a Catholic and they're competing with each other for numbers and wealth and things like that. And

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

here, Allah azza wa jal tells them

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

that you will come to know

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

any money or clean

00:30:46--> 00:30:58

the knowledge of certainty because knowledge is of different levels, right? Like there are things that you are fairly sure about and then there are things that you are certain about that you have absolutely no doubt over at all.

00:31:01--> 00:31:30

I live in a Vitaly gravi Allahu anhu. He has a statement he said Mara atrio, Kenan asheboro Bishkek, minute mote okemah called he said, he said, I have never seen anything certain, resent more have a stronger resemblance to debt to doubt than death. I'll try that again. I have never seen anything more, sir. Anything certain have a stronger resemblance to doubt than death.

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

Death is absolutely certain.

00:31:36--> 00:31:44

And yet everybody behaves like they doubt it. That's what he means roll the alarm on. Death is absolutely certain.

00:31:45--> 00:32:22

You know, like they say that famous statement that you know, there are two things you can be certain of in life, death and taxes. Yeah, the taxes we have dealt over. Maybe there are some places you won't pay it. But death is a certainty. Death is yucky, and everybody has pain that they're going to die. Yet everybody behaves as law. They don't. Everybody behaves as though they're not quite sure, or maybe it won't happen to them. And that's why he said that I'm not seeing something certain more have a stronger resemblance to doubt than death mean the way people behave as though it is doubtful, and yet it is something which is absolutely certain.

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

If you were to know and Allah said lo tanam, if you were to know

00:32:31--> 00:33:12

the knowledge of your cane, if you really had your cane, the meaning here we take is if you really hide your pain, if you really had certainty, you wouldn't be from those people who gathered all that those things together and competed with each other in it. That's the meaning of low tide and Mona Emily again, if you had that certainty, if you were to have that proper certainty, in what is going to happen to you in your death, and the grave, and Yokoyama and the hisab, the account agenda and the fire if you had knowledge with certainty of that you wouldn't be from the people that Allah said, Allah come together. And so if you see in yourself that desire to compete in the worldly life,

00:33:13--> 00:33:52

and compete for things that don't benefit, you understand that the fundamental problem is that the arcane isn't what it should be the certainty in death isn't what it should be. And one of the solutions to that is to go and visit the graves not as a person who is dying and being very desperate to go and visit them to remind you of death and to increase your certainty. So that this will remove this takaful from you one of the ways to remove that that desire to compete with each other in the worldly life is and premier have been preoccupied by it is to visit the graveyards and to see the people buried.

00:33:55--> 00:34:21

let out letter one letter J. Now here there's something interesting. We don't join these two ayat here. We don't say kelela talamona in Molokini letter J we don't join them here, because this ayah letterwinner jehane is not connected to the ayah before it is not connected. Let around here is

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

part of a sentence the first part of the sentence has been removed.

00:34:27--> 00:34:45

And that happens a lot in Arabic that we remove a part of the sentence and it's understood. So it's understood as being a costume as an oath while law he led around by a law you will certainly see Johanna. Here we come to an interesting question.

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

Is this sort of directed towards the believers or the disbelievers.

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

biohack for him Allah Tada.

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

He said

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

that the first is

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

Kela solfatara Moon you certainly know, is towards the disbelievers from McKellar sofa, Tyler moon and the second one is towards the believers or the other way around, he mentioned that one is for one and one is for the other. Why would people take us away from being for the Muslims? Some of them said like Tara wouldn't know jehane Can we say that for a Muslim? You're going to definitely see, Johanna, you're going to definitely see Johanna. Is that something we can say for a Muslim? Or is that indicating it's only towards a non Muslims? Rather, this indicates everybody why Allah said what you mean come illawarra to

00:35:37--> 00:35:57

the every single one of you is going to pass over the fire every one of you so the fact that you see jahannam doesn't necessitate you will enter Jannah and that was an issue that one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu ala symbol of your love and her she had an issue she said to the Messenger of Allah

00:35:59--> 00:36:09

that how can it be a min Camilla worried? How can it be that everyone what she understood from the word worried is everyone will go into Johanna.

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

She said how can it be that everyone will go into Jana

00:36:16--> 00:36:58

but the prophet SAW Selim recited the iode one or two afterwards so many legendary taco whenever volume you know if he has you see that then we will save those people who had taqwa and we will put the oppressive people we will put them down on their knees in it. So this tells us that you passing over the fire and seeing the fire doesn't mean that you'll necessarily enter the fire so that this saying that you'll certainly see voila he by a law you're definitely going to see jahannam doesn't mean necessarily that you will be from the people have jahannam and there's no reason why a Muslim is prohibited from entering jahannam but he won't remember remain or she won't remain in jahannam

00:36:58--> 00:37:20

forever. If they were a Muslim and they had the minimum requirements to be a Muslim then they won't be from the people who are eternally in the Hellfire Of course we all hope that none of us will be from the people who enter it at all but as for passing over it this is something which everyone must go through what I mean come in our into every one of you will go over it

00:37:21--> 00:37:51

let our own ninja hang you will certainly see and again here it said you will certainly see the fire I you will certainly see the people being punished in the fire and from those people who are punished in the fire or those people who have committed Catholic they became the hearts got preoccupied with competing in numbers and gathering and having more of things and that could be a reason why they were from the people of the fire.

00:37:53--> 00:38:03

And again Emily are keen here that would indicate that Emily octane is mutia Hydra it's actually visually see it that when you have that absolute certainty

00:38:04--> 00:38:29

or that would be the idea that would be Irelia King sorry. The next is from Allah tala Wanda. So Emily again would be the knowledge that you had that made you certain that it was going to happen and then I in eliakim when you finally see it with your own eyes, and you see and that is a level of certainty which is higher than the certainty that you gain through knowledge. And that's why Ibrahim

00:38:31--> 00:39:11

he said what is called a Ibrahim or be Adeney cater to him. Mota. Caller Welcome to min caller Bella wala kingly automa in Colby. When Ibrahim said to his Lord, my Lord, let me see how you cause the death the dead to come to life. Allah said do not believe he said, rather I do believe but for my heart to have increased tranquility and that is the difference between Emily Aki and an earlier King Ibrahim was not requesting a man he was requesting a level of yaqeen higher than the team that he already had an alliance of generals best certainty through seeing somebody better

00:39:13--> 00:39:31

than you will see it with your own eyes, some mulatos alone, yo man, even any name, and then on that day, you will certainly be asked about the blessings. What are the blessings that you will be asked about?

00:39:32--> 00:39:41

There are so many ahaadeeth we don't want to go too many into too many. But the basic answer is geminiani on all of the blessings.

00:39:42--> 00:39:53

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the first thing from the blessings that a person will be asked about yo malkia is L mount will bear it

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

is cold water.

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

you imagine? We don't even think we complete

00:40:00--> 00:40:50

About cold water you know suppiler sometimes and or hot water and we supposed to have open the tap and have cold water every time you drank a glass of cold water from the tap, Allah azza wa jal will ask you about some mellitus neoma even add in nine. And the first thing you'll be asked about is that did you show gratitude to allies origin and you think about the life we live we live such a very very what's the word such an a sheltered life with so many blessings in it and so many things made easy for us, we have heating and then in hot countries we have AC and fans and generally we are we live a very very very comfortable life even the worst among us and the least the more in the most

00:40:50--> 00:40:59

difficulty among us leaves a very comfortable life compared to people of the past. And yet every one of these blessings you'll be asked about it in the sight of allies Origin

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

The prophets I mentioned mentioned in other Hadees being asked about food, being asked about water he mentioned near my taneema woman vehicle film in a nest a see her welfare dog. He said there are two blessings that most people do not show gratitude for

00:41:17--> 00:41:31

health and free time. All of these things you'll be asked about. And he mentioned that the foot of a person will not move from its place Yokoyama entity is asked about four things, and one of the things will be asked about what he

00:41:33--> 00:41:37

Where did he mean a neck test about who were female? And

00:41:39--> 00:41:55

he'd be asked about his wealth, how did he earn it? How did he spend it? These are all from the name that you'll be asked about. And Miss requires more has ever to neffs taking yourself to account and asking yourself about all the blessings, you can't get all of them.

00:41:57--> 00:42:41

Were in terror doing the amatola healer. So if you try to count all the blessings, you won't be able to you won't be able to get all of them. But you try to remember the blessings of Allah and you try to ask yourself, am I showing gratitude? airmail Allah do the chakra act or family of doubt in gratitude. Gratitude is about saying, I sing Alhamdulillah and so on, and about acting in a way that shows you're grateful for what you've been given. So you've been given a nice place to live. Use it for the worship of Allah use it to obey Allah as for being giving a nice bed to sleep in and then not waking up for a fair job. That's not sugar. Allah gave you that beautiful place to sleep. And

00:42:41--> 00:43:19

you misused it. And that's one of the things you'll be asked about. So much. I don't know, yoga, even any name. That's what allies were gentlemen, easy for us to mention when a little bit longer than I was hoping for. But we finished the solo and that's kind of how we're going to go every Friday, maybe once or if it's a short one, we might end up going through too, but usually it will just be one and we try to go through it in a little bit of detail, but not too much that people feel you know, not too much that people feel kind of lost in Charlottetown. So that's what allies are gentlemen, easy for us to mention. And ally as origin knows best. Was Salatu was Salam ala nabina
