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

Well

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

in order

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

to be inshallah tada today going to complete the Tafseer of salt and lead

00:00:20--> 00:00:33

in the early on in the week or the week before we had done the first half of sort of delayed and now we shall allow to Allah we're going to start from the statement of Allah azza wa jal for anzaldo to come now until lava

00:00:35--> 00:00:38

for and dogs will come now on talofa

00:00:41--> 00:00:45

I have warned you of a fire

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

tilava tilava even jarier he said as Mujahid said Rahim Allah to Allah tala Hajj that it is completely it's a burning blaze it's completely on fire in flames.

00:01:02--> 00:01:11

I have warned you of a fire that is in flames terlato la Yes, la,

00:01:12--> 00:01:16

la Lashkar as for the Stephen fans out to canal on Tel Aviv

00:01:17--> 00:01:51

for example, there are Heidi's in this regard from that Heidi Thorne, Norman Bashir and others. There is a hadith that the prophet in Muslim Achmad that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he warned the people of the fire to the extent that even the people in the marketplaces would hear his warning and from even the people far away from his message it would hear him and hear his warning to the people of the fire layer saleha lol Ashkar la yes la ha

00:01:52--> 00:01:55

What is the meaning of La yes la Ha.

00:01:57--> 00:01:57

Because

00:01:58--> 00:02:11

what it would first be taken to mean or what you would first understand from it is that non will enter it la yes la law non will enter it except for Ashkar.

00:02:13--> 00:02:23

Now, the first issue we're going to deal with is this word yes law. So, it has two meanings that come into crime one is entering the fire

00:02:24--> 00:02:32

and one is being completely surrounded and in case by and burning in when you have a will.

00:02:34--> 00:03:25

As for what the scholars they say le halter will hold the fire surrounding them and being in the fire forever. Then none of the people of Eman will have the punishment of being in the fire forever. Anyone who died from the people of ATO heed for the people who worshiped a lot as a region alone and with no partner and they brought the minimum conditions that are required for a person to remain as a Muslim that person will not remain the firefighter they will not remain the fire forever but they may enter the fire will enter the villa for a period of time. They may enter the fire for a period of time. So this word Leia saleha bought it comes with both of these two meanings

00:03:27--> 00:03:34

entering into the fire and being completely surrounded by and burning within it or burning within it

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

layer of solar her lol Ashkar non will enter it or non will burn within it except for an ash car.

00:03:47--> 00:03:52

And ash car comes from the word shocky and it's on the pattern of well

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

meaning the most

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

wretched

00:03:58--> 00:04:26

liars Lucha lol Ashkar by here the scholars of Tafseer. They deferred is the meaning here of Ashkar. Does it mean the most wretched? Or does it just simply mean? Someone who is wretched meaning layoffs ilaha illa shocky no one will enter it except for the wretched person? Or does it mean the one that is the most?

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

The most wretched. What it appears is that it doesn't hear mean the most wretched. It doesn't hear mean the most. Even though After all, the pattern Ashkar like which is on the pattern of well, it can mean the most. But it's also sometimes used in the Quran and other in in in also before in Arabic poetry to mean the characteristic itself. So Elias la ha

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

Lashkar ly sooner her in the shocky no one enters it except for the Sharpie.

00:05:09--> 00:05:25

However, they are the scholars who said lay a slur her lol Ashkar that it means the most wretched non will enter except for the most wretched. How do they reconcile between that and the fact that there will be people enter the fire

00:05:28--> 00:05:52

have different levels of wretchedness and different severity of disbelief in the sight of allies origin. So how do we how could we possibly reconcile the idea if the word Ashkar means the most wretched nobody will enter the fire except for the most wretched. And they said here that the most wretched here, it doesn't.

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

It doesn't mean that

00:05:56--> 00:06:08

they all have, it doesn't necessarily have to refer to one person or one group of people, only that all of them are equally wretched. Like they're equally bad. So it doesn't have to refer to just one

00:06:09--> 00:06:30

kind of person, or one group of people lie arcilla. In Ashkar, none will enter except for the most wretched. Rather, it can also refer to many different types of people, all of whom are wretched, but they aren't. They're all as bad as each other. That's one way that you could reconcile. But the easier way, or the easiest

00:06:32--> 00:06:49

explanation is to say that the word Ashkar here it doesn't mean the most wretched, but it means except one who is wretched. And that has evidence in poetry, like the statement of the point to manjeri, Javelin and mortar we're in

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

for to Cal Poly jaquan less to be happy. Oh, Heidi.

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

He said this is he said that

00:06:58--> 00:07:21

a group of men wish for me to die. And if I were to die, then this is a path that I am not, oh hate, meaning I'm not worried. I'm not the only one who will experience it. So in any case, this is a proof from poetry for the use of the word after a tough deal of the pattern after like Ashkar to use it to mean

00:07:23--> 00:07:55

the description itself to mean the surfer itself in shocky layers law her Alicia key, no one will enter it except for the one who is wretched and the one who is wretched can be of many different levels of severity. Different levels of disbelief can include also the believer who had committed major sins all of these things are any are possible. If we take the word Ashkar that it doesn't mean the most wretched, but it means the wretched one layer lol Ashkar

00:07:56--> 00:08:50

a lady cat verba whatever. A lady kettlebell water well, the one who denies and turns away, the one who denies and turns away. Now here denying and turning away. The reason these two are mentioned together is the denial is a denial of the heart. disbelief that starts off in the heart, and turning away is the action of the limbs that results from that disbelief in the heart. So liars Lucha Illa, Lashkar non will enter except for the wretched one, the one who denied and turned away. So if we say the one who denied and turned away is the disbeliever then how can we reconcile between this and the fact that there will be some Muslims who are punished in the fire, then this is to say that the word

00:08:50--> 00:09:24

the US law, as we said, has two meanings. One is generally to enter the fire, and the other one is to be completely surrounded, and to be burnt within it forever, and that will only be for the disbeliever so the one who disbelieved in our lives origin and the one who turned away completely from the religion of Islam, that person will be punished in the fire forever. As for the Muslim who will enter the fire, because of some of the sins that they did, if Allah wishes he will forgive them and if Allah wishes he will punish them, and if they're punished, they will not be punished in there forever.

00:09:26--> 00:09:49

And levy kasturba was the one who denied with his hot water when in turn turned away with his limbs or with his actions, denied with his heart and turned away with our family with his actions. will say you Jenna Boyle at car and the car will be kept away from it

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

was a virgin never was a regenerable car.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

The car will be kept away from it. liosta in Alaska, Larry kept them

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

Well that was a

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

car,

00:10:03--> 00:10:20

the car will be kept away from it. So the Add car isn't the same pattern as the word Ashkar. So the same discussion is going to be mentioned here. But at car it comes from a taqwa. We've already mentioned a taqwa previously in these Tafseer classes.

00:10:21--> 00:10:34

And we've said that a taqwa is to put a barrier between you and between something that you're scared of and in Islam to put a barrier between you and between the punishment of Allah His anger, his curse, and the hellfire.

00:10:37--> 00:11:17

So here again, if it refers to at car, the most the people have, the most taqwa will be kept away from it. The people have the most taqwa. This is where some of the scholars of Tafseer they said, the ayah they said naza let me back up. It was really it was it was revealed about Abu Bakr Siddiq are the alumni. Because Abu Bakr Siddiq is the most has the most taqwa after the prophets and the messengers aleikum wa Salatu was Salam. They said that this that the one with the most taqwa will be kept away from it, they said this ayah was revealed about Abubakar acidic.

00:11:18--> 00:12:02

However, we're going to say the same thing again, that the word atka here doesn't have to mean the most. And the most that more apparent meaning here is that at par is a takita person of taqwa. among whom no doubt Abu bakkar is among the most deserving of the people to be described with that Ravi Allahu anhu is the best of the Sahaba and the best of the people after the prophets and the messengers aleikum wa salatu wa sallam is Abu Bakr no doubt, but there is no need to limit this is only to Abubakar if we say that the word act card doesn't mean the most. But it means attacking the person of taqwa. So the person of taqwa will be kept away from it. And among the people of taqwa and

00:12:02--> 00:12:10

among the most deserving of the people to be described with that description is abubaker acidic. Robbie a loved one

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

a lady you t Mariela, who yet as

00:12:16--> 00:12:21

the one who gave his wealth yet has a

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

purifying it

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

here

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

there's a very very important statement or even cattier Rahim Allah, even kaseya he said,

00:12:36--> 00:12:39

you're sorry for mela hoof your thoughts your OBE

00:12:40--> 00:12:47

Li use that key inf sir, who were Mariela? Who won? What have a hula hoop mean Dean where dunya

00:12:48--> 00:13:36

he said, the person spends their wealth in obedience to their Lord, in order to purify themselves and their wealth, and what Allah has given them from their religion and their dunya. What's very important about the statement of oven kefir is that Eben katha didn't restrict this Zakah here to mean purifying the wealth, rather than Zakah purifies the wealth, and it purifies the person as well. How does giving charity purify a person we understand that purifies the wealth? We understand one of the reasons is that one of the purposes of Zakat is to purify the wealth from the unknown elements that may have touched it from the harm from the things that were not right. It purifies the

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

wealth.

00:13:37--> 00:13:46

But how does it purify the person? It purifies the person by keeping them away from alcohol, stinginess, sure.

00:13:47--> 00:13:57

Being self centered, not caring about other people, having a hard heart. All of these things are purified by giving sadaqa

00:13:58--> 00:14:42

all of them are purified by sahab by Assad apart by giving charity. So Subhanallah one of the things we see from this is that charity is not something that just purifies your wealth. Charity is something that purifies your heart, it softens your heart, it brings about purity of the heart, it brings about forgiveness, from Allah subhanaw taala it brings about a cure for some of the sicknesses of the heart, as well as purifying the person's wealth. So here, there's no need for us to limit the ayah and Lady you t Merle, yet as that car The one who gives his wealth purifying, there is no need for us to limit it to purifying the wealth only rather purifying the wealth and

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

purifying the self. So that tells us that a sadaqa is from the means to achieve teskey to neffs purification of the self.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Then we come to the statement of Eliza Jen woman earlier hiding in the home in near Mateen torches. This is a very

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

Important if we're going to take a little bit of time to understand this idea properly, so this is still describing at car is describing the person with the most taqwa or it's describing the people of taqwa. If we said it's the person the most awkward, the huge number of the scholars they said, this ayah was wrong or these ayat were revealed about Abubakar, acidic, either person with the most taqwa after the prophets and the messengers. Only Hamas Salatu was Salam. So, in any case, whether we're talking about Abu Bakar as an individual, or we're talking about people have Taqwa in general, the first description is a taqwa

00:15:42--> 00:16:17

protecting themselves from the punishment of Allah. The second description is a levy yo t murderer, who yet is the one who gives their wealth to purify themselves, and to purify their wealth. One early I had him in there who me near met him, he said, Now let's start with just the words were money I had, there is no one in the who, regarding him mimir method that has any favor to edges that can be repaid.

00:16:19--> 00:16:31

There is no one that has a favor over him that to be repaid, there is no one that has a favor over him to be repaid. What does this mean?

00:16:33--> 00:17:01

This is of Tafseer, they had two opinions with regard to this, the majority this they spoke about it in the past, but they both the both of the two opinions are very similar to each other in a general sense. They refer to the fact that when a person gives this, this charity, they have, no, there's nothing that they're paying back, there's no fever, they're paying back. There's no fever, that they are paying back. When you think about this,

00:17:02--> 00:17:49

imagine if someone did you, you are very did a good deed for you did something nice to kind to you, you feel a need to pay them back. It might be that you give them some help, maybe even sadhaka, maybe even Zakah because you remember that in better times. They helped you out. That's not the description here. What I had in India who minemining teaches that there is no one that has a favor over them. In other words, the wealth that they give is completely for Allah there is no reason for them to give it there's no expectation for them to give it there is no favor that's being done that they're repeating back. It is something that is purely for Allah in the monitor a more complete

00:17:49--> 00:18:02

wedge Hila learn reducing crunches and what actual Cora we only feed you for the sake of Allah, we don't want any reward from you, or any thanks. There's no just that it's not more katha.

00:18:03--> 00:18:08

It's not more katha, where they did something for you, then you do something for them.

00:18:09--> 00:18:20

And this is can be used as In fact, first of all, before we talk about that, we'll talk about the second opinion, which is that this relates to the future, meaning that the person gives

00:18:21--> 00:19:07

the majority of the scholars they said in the past, meaning they giving without any favors having been done to them in the past. That's the opinion of the majority of the scholars of Tafseer even Okay, fear on others, Rahim Allah to Allah Allahu Allahu Jamia, they said that no fever has been done for them in the past, as a reason for them to give the money that they're giving. There's no favor being done for them. The second opinion is that it refers to the future, meaning that they're not waiting for a favor in return. They're not waiting for a favor in return. They're not waiting for someone to do something in return. So there is nothing being done for them in the past, nor are

00:19:07--> 00:19:30

they expecting anything to be done in the future. And one of the things you can see about these two opinions is that they are complimentary. They don't have to contradict each other. So we can take them both together in Sharla and say that they're both correct. The person has had no favor done to them in the past, to justify the sadaqa they give nor are they expecting any favor in the future.

00:19:31--> 00:19:41

return for the sadaqa that they've given and that is yes and when it comes to sadaqa is the highest level of Eman as it relates to the sadhaka

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

as for the person who is McAfee, they give what is given to them. Then this person has done good. There's higher you know, somebody did what is done for them. Someone did good for you. And you did good in return. Someone was kind to you. You did kind

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

In return, someone helped you out when things were difficult for you, so you help them out when things are difficult for them. This is a good thing. And there's nothing wrong with that. That's a praiseworthy attribute that we all should develop that habit of, of of that we try to repay someone back, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in an authentic hadith and Sunnah la mera warfare for carefree or whoever does a good deed for you something good for you try to pay him back for unlimited you do medical care for you on a federal ruler had set out Oh, and netcom Cafe tool. He said that if you don't find what you can pay them back with, then make to ask for them until you

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

think that you have paid them back. You make to ask what you pay them back in.

00:20:55--> 00:21:03

But the most complete example of a man that deserves to be said for at card the one with the most taqwa

00:21:04--> 00:21:45

is to say that this person gives their sadaqa without any favor having been done for them in the past. And without expecting anything in the future. They don't expect to. They don't want to. Even in this you see some people when they give sadaqa they'll say like some will say, Oh, can I give you something back? You said no, don't give me anything, just your da. Even this is better that a person doesn't say it. If they want to achieve the highest level of Eman as an axon as it relates to sadaqa. They don't even ask for do I in return, because I can pay you back. Like the prophet SAW SM said federal law who then make dua for that person, federal

00:21:46--> 00:22:32

federal law who had Tarot and knuckle care factor more, until you see that you've paid them back. So even though I could be considered to be a way of a person being paid back for the good that they've done, I'm just giving you this just make to offer me rather even better than that is you don't ask them for anything you give them without having anything having been done to you in the past or for you in the past. And you don't expect anything from it in the future. Also, here, there is one thing or a limit here mentioned in the eye, and that is near Mateen touches a fever that can be paid back. Because there are some favors people do for you, you can never pay them back, like inviting you to

00:22:32--> 00:23:02

Islam, or a person being guided to Islam through someone. This is an AMA language that you can't, you can't repeat, you can't give it back. This is something that they can only receive the reward from it from Allah subhanaw taala. That's what some of the scholars they said. They said that here the favors that I mentioned other favors that can be paid back like somebody gave you some help financial help somebody was there for you when you needed them and so on.

00:23:03--> 00:23:17

But this ayah has a broader understanding to it. And that is that this ayah indicates that if you want to reach for the highest levels of Eman, you should not be in the habit of taking things from anyone,

00:23:18--> 00:23:30

or taking favors from anyone or asking favors from anyone ever. We're merely a hiding in the human narrative teaches that this person has no one that owes them a favor,

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

nor one that did a favor for them.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

And even though

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

this has to have some limits in the understanding,

00:23:40--> 00:23:48

because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. himself Salatu was salam o le, he used to

00:23:50--> 00:24:04

try to give back if someone gave him something, he would try to give it back and so on. You can't You can't live without having sometimes people do things for you acts of kindness, but not seeking acts of kindness from anyone.

00:24:05--> 00:24:05

This is

00:24:07--> 00:24:46

not seeking an act of kindness from anyone or expecting an act of kindness from anyone. And that is the highest level of sincerity and yes, and in this in this particular area that you don't ask for a favor from anybody. And you don't expect a favor from anyone you give and you don't mind if the people accept it from you or don't accept it if they give return or they don't ever think of you again. If they have good words to say or bad words to say it doesn't make any difference to you. Because you did it solely for the sake of a Lysacek only for Allah sake.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

It's narrated from the Prophet sites, I mean ahaadeeth and narrated by an Imam, a Timothy delima Matilda movie narrated from the prophets I send them that he said, Molly I had in Indiana you

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

elac athanor hu ma hyla Abu Bakar

00:25:06--> 00:25:55

for inilah who end in a year then you have Phil la who yo Mel piano or chemical. So I said let me said there is no one that has any favor over me except that I've paid them back to profit sites except that I've repaid them except for Abu Bakar for Abu Bakar did me a favor that Allah will pay him back for Yama, piano. The head is in a tournament the and Shia Hello Danny said his hidey hole. So he said authentic hadith that everyone who's ever done a favor for me I paid them back I gave them back except for Abu Bakr. Abu Bakar has a favor, that only Allah azzawajal He will give him the reward for it yarmulke and that's from the good the virtue of Abu Bakar and many of the scholars of

00:25:55--> 00:26:01

tifosi. They said these ayat were revealed about Abu Bakar. So it's not surprising that we should find that in that context.

00:26:02--> 00:26:11

But what I wanted to take is that the Prophet size lm his habit was to give back when someone would give him a gift, he would give a gift in return.

00:26:12--> 00:26:18

Even to the point that I shut off your lover and her when she would give sadaqa when she would give us other

00:26:19--> 00:26:38

she would say to the servant would distribute it. She would say that McCord What did they say? So the servant would say Carlo barakallahu li come? They said barakallahu Arusha would say what PHY him Baraka LA. She would see me Allah bless them.

00:26:39--> 00:27:27

Why she would say no to LA him. mithila Mercado wire edge Aruna edge Runa Lennar, she said that what we would do is, we would respond to them with the same that they said, so that we can keep the reward. So we can keep the reward. So Paula is a beautiful example. So she would give sadaqa when she would give this other car she would send it with the servant, which would send the sidecar the server and gives the sidecar what would deserve it? What would the person getting the sidecar do? Such as? Hello, hello. What would you say? May Allah reward you to? Why? Because she doesn't want that that to be paying back. She wants the reward of giving without anything in return. She wanted

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

the reward of giving without anything in return. But Jessica lo Hey, Ron could be something in return. So what she would do is when they would say barakallahu li come, she would say we're fee him Baraka Allah, and May Allah bless them.

00:27:42--> 00:28:30

So that she's paid them back for saying barakallahu Fie comm she paid them back for saying barakallahu li comm she's paid them back for that for saying barakallahu li and she has the reward of giving the sadaqa So even with Jessica lo Hey, Ron, this is to the extent that Sahaba took it even jsoc aloha Iran, they would pay it back, even barakallahu FECA they would pay it back. It wouldn't let someone say jozek aloha Iran or someone say Baraka la fique without saying the same thing back to them, so that the reward stays for them. Otherwise they used to fear that maybe I give a sadaqa the person said jack Aloha, right? So now we are equal. I want to be from the people about

00:28:30--> 00:28:38

whom Allah said what money I had in India whom we never met into Jesus. There is no one that has any favor over them that can be paid back.

00:28:39--> 00:29:26

No one has any favor over them that can be paid back. So I want to be even when they say just Hello, hi Ron. I will say And may Allah reward you what Yak I will say. What jazak Allahu Allah, may Allah reward you to barakallahu li wolfy combat Allah May Allah bless you to saw that we are equal in this and the sadaqa remains a reward for me. There's nothing wrong with you giving sadaqa and not waiting for the response or not saying we're FECA Baraka Lau something that's absolutely fine. But we're talking about the one who wants to be among the best of the people of taqwa. We're talking about striving for the highest levels of taqwa, then no doubt for a person not to have any fever that

00:29:26--> 00:29:46

anyone did for them, not to have any blessing over them or any fever over them. This is from among the best things that a person can aim for. And that a person always tries to pay people back. If they can't pay people back in kind than in reward then into.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

If they can't pay people back in kind, then pay them back in da because you can't maybe pay them back in case somebody was there for you at a difficult time. Maybe you will not be able

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

To be there for them in a similar time, you can't find the same way to pay them back in kind. So instead what you do is you make to ask for them until you feel that you have paid them back. And that's why when you hear someone making to offer you like that, then I show what she would do is reply back to them. So that still that that extra reward of the sadaqa would remain without any favor being given back without any kind of recompense or anything in the worldly life that you got back from it. But if you gave sidechains someone said to Zack, hello, hey, Ron, you took a benefit back, you gave something and you took something, but they wanted to be from the people who gave and

00:30:41--> 00:31:30

they didn't take anything. So when the person would say barakallahu li come, work for him Baraka Allah, may Allah bless them to, so that they, the sadaqa that they gave was something for which they receive nothing, in return. And this can be a principle that you can live your life by, in amount of time or company which we only give you food for the sake of Allah. Learn resuming conscious and rational course we don't want any reward from you or any things. And if a person lives, their life like this will lie they will be from the more successful and happier people. And I think it's one of the most basic concepts of feelings, content itself, content, being being self contentment, being

00:31:30--> 00:32:14

content with yourself, is not to expect things from other people. And not to expect reward. Not to expect people to be kind to you like you are kind to them. The more you attach your heart to Allah and you ask it from Allah, that's what that's what matters. And that's how you should be in everything. Whether It's Your solder car, or anything else relationship with your family members, the Prophet slicin, said Lisa last, it'll be more careful. The one who keeps ties with the family members is not the one who does so because they do so reciprocally. They give he gives they give, he keeps ties, they keep ties. If you behave like that, you'll always be disappointed with people. But

00:32:14--> 00:32:59

if you try to be the one who gives and doesn't expect anything back, the one who gives when people never give anything to you, then this is what will bring a person about self contentment and teskey to nefs purification of the soul. It's another means to purify the soul and lead the team Mariela, who yet as the person who gives their wealth and purifies themselves and their wealth, one of the means they purify themselves with is they don't expect any favor from anyone. And they're not doing it in response to something someone else did for them. And they avoid people doing favors for them wherever possible without paying them back, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said

00:32:59--> 00:33:11

that no one has ever done something except that we paid. We paid them back we did. We gave them back what they gave like we did to them the good that they did to us, except for Abu Bakr,

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

radi Allahu anhu.

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

In Liberty Hall, awaji Europe bill Allah

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

Illa here is an alliance Journal's best Moncada, which means that it doesn't mean except here,

00:33:27--> 00:34:06

in LA generally means except when it comes in the Quran toward Illa. It means except, however Illa it can come, which we call more coffee, broken, meaning that it doesn't refer to this to the objects that were mentioned before or the things that were mentioned before, and the meaning of it, then it becomes the meaning of lacking, however. So eleventy Hall, however, seeking the face of their Lord the Most High, seeking the face of their Lord, the Most High

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

seeking the face of their Lord

00:34:10--> 00:34:16

Ignacio Rahim Allah to Allah He said, seeking to see the face of a lot in gender.

00:34:17--> 00:34:59

And it seems to me that this is what the seller understood, Rahim Allah tala. And that's what they mean said Rahim Allah to Allah, when he was asked about it, that the apostle us Lo, fi valic that the basic principle is when the when it says in Liberty hall or YG, European Allah except seeking the face of their Lord, then it means to seek to see his face in general. And there is no need for us to change that meaning to say, to seek his reward, or to seek His paradise or something like that. Rather to seek the face of Allah to seek to look at the face of Allah as origin. The most Hi, this is what appears to me

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

From what, what I looked at from the statements of the scholars, that this idea of it meaning seeking the reward of Allah, that requires any requires us to see from among the seller who said this, that EBITDA our JIRA bill and in seeking his reward, we have to go back and see who said this from the early scholars. But generally speaking, like shifting the theme in Rahim Allah, Allah said, Our Sufi dialect, the basic meaning of that is seeking to see the face of allies origin, in general. And that's the meaning that was taken by even okay here. And it is, to me, it's of how it's what is the most apparent meaning of the eye analyzer General's best, the only reason this person is giving

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

the southern is because of seeing the face of a large Hotel in paradise.

00:35:50--> 00:36:31

And that, of course, includes the rewards of Paradise that come with it. They want the reward of ally soldier, and the greatest of the rewards that allies or agenda will give to the people of gender is to look at his face, would you even now there are in our behind our faces on that day will be bright, looking at the Lord and allies, we just said about the disbelievers in our home, our rugby hemiola, even the natural one. On that day they will be veiled and covered so they will not be able to see the Lord. So the greatest reward of the people of gender is to look at the face of Allah as origin. And that's what people what that's what,

00:36:32--> 00:36:53

that's what people are racing each other for. We're phenolic affiliate NFS NFS. One, let the people compete with each other, in this in seeking the face of Allah azzawajal Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah the Most High and the role of allies. So agenda highness of Allah subhanaw taala

00:36:54--> 00:37:03

the highness of allies, which refers to three types of highness, it refers to Urdu that in Waterloo, harder in Waterloo

00:37:05--> 00:37:16

and as soon as you will, Gemma, they affirmed all of these three, it affirms that Allah Himself is high above his creation. He's above his arch pinata.

00:37:18--> 00:37:47

And that's why the point as he said, Kedah know Hulu Woolfolk iya Allah a bear de la k fee. In this way allies or agenda he has a new world for Korea, he is high and he is above his creation. So panatela that's how we describe allies origin. And as we mentioned before in other lectures, there are 1000s of proofs, some of the scholars said 1000 some of them said 2000 that prove that a large so a gel is above his creation.

00:37:48--> 00:38:03

And there are many many evidences for this in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and among them is the name of Eliza gel, Allah the Most High, that Allah Himself is above his creation high above them himself.

00:38:04--> 00:38:08

Likewise in status, our lives also the most high

00:38:09--> 00:38:26

And likewise, in Allah azza wa jal compelling and that non can route non can go against his command. And that he if he says, quote, unfair can be and it is, and no one has a chance to,

00:38:28--> 00:39:11

to decline or deny the command of allies or jail when it comes. This is also from the issue of allies origin law, the fact that allies which are subjugated slaves, all of them are below Allah and allies above them subpanel to Allah, so Allah azza wa jal himself is above his creation. We don't say that allies everywhere. We say that allies or gel is above, like the slave girl, which was bought before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said to her Salalah while he was selling more of the Ravi Allahu anhu, he said to her aina Allah, where is Allah? She said, for some our allies above the heavens, the prophets I said to her man, Anna, who am I? She said you are the

00:39:11--> 00:39:56

Messenger of Allah. He said free her for in Mina for she is a believer, because she said that all lies above the heavens. Jennifer EULA hi in his high above the heavens subhanaw taala above his creation subhanaw taala. So we describe Eliza gel with Alou with highness. And we say that a light is above without phobia that allies above. That's how Allah described himself. That's how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described him and that's what's right and appropriate to say about Allah. That's what that's what's the correct thing to say about allies origin? Anyone who says that Eliza gel is everywhere. This is an evil statement to make against a las panatela to say that a

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

light is everywhere. Because that would entail that a lot.

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

origin is present inside of the disbeliever or inside of the idols, or the temples, the places which are impure, the bathrooms and so on. That's not allowed to say such things about a Lost Planet Allah. So therefore we do not say the lies or jellies everywhere, nor did Allah say that he is everywhere nor did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that he's everywhere, rather the correct thing to say is that Allah is above his creation. That's what Eliza was. Well, he said, said be his model because Allah say sapan or be an Allah, the One who is the highest, the one who is the highest and Eliza gel. He told us, I mean, to Memphis summer, do you feel safe that the one who is

00:40:47--> 00:41:34

in the heavens, it's gonna cause he asked if I become an adult, cause the earth to swallow you up for a day or two more allies or just said in zelner who feel a little cutter we sent down in laser cutter language I said, la he has I don't carry my type. To him rises up the good word will analysts cite your Pharaoh and righteous deeds are raised up to him. And we said the prophet SAW the library was specifically asked to serve a girl whereas a large he said it lies above the heavens. And he said free her for she is a believer. So this is all from a the things that prove that Allah azzawajal is above and is described with orlu highness and for Kenya. But that highness doesn't just

00:41:34--> 00:42:09

mean himself. Also, his status is the highest and also his power and subjugation of his slaves is also the highest and all of these three are true about Allah azza wa jal in liberty of Elijah Hill up the hill Allah. However, we said Illa here means, however, however, seeking the face of the Lord the Most High, that's the reason why they wanted to do to give this Southern to purify themselves, to get what is with a Lysacek to look at the face of a lie. So I have all of the blessings of Paradise

00:42:10--> 00:42:31

among which the best of them and the highest of them is to look at the face of allies origin. That's what they wanted. That's that's why they did what they did. And this is all about sincerity, in terms of making efforts in terms of how a person seeks to purify themselves and get near to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.

00:42:33--> 00:42:37

Then Allah azza wa jal said, well, so failed bar.

00:42:38--> 00:43:00

And that person will certainly be content will certainly be content. As we said, many of the scholars of Tafseer they said this, these ayat were all revealed about Abu Bakr. But we can make it more general than that because we said an atkore here doesn't have to mean the one with the most taqwa it can mean a turkey. The one who has taqwa.

00:43:01--> 00:43:06

Well, a sofa, era bar, and this person who has this description

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

of giving their wealth in that way, this person will certainly be content.

00:43:17--> 00:43:25

And that's why even Okay, theater, he said about this, many tasks offer behind the scenes that whoever has these descriptions

00:43:26--> 00:44:11

of a taqwa. lsvt Mela who yet is like who gives the wealth in Zakah, purifying themselves and purifying their wealth. We're merely a hiding under hominem at integers and doesn't have any favor from any one in the past. We're expecting any favor in the future. In liberty, how would you your appeal Allah only seeking the face of Allah the Most High, the one who this is their description? Well, a selfie, but that person will certainly be content and the lamb here is job custom. It's answering an oath, it's as low as Allah said, voila, he bless alpha. By a law, that person will certainly be content.

00:44:13--> 00:44:58

The contentment here doesn't have to be only an Acura. Rather, that person will be content in the dunya and akhira. And one of the things that makes you content in the dunya, as we said, is that you don't expect reward or favors from people. You don't ask for them, and you don't expect them, neither in the past, nor in the future. So in the past, you don't expect favors from people. So in the present in the future, you don't expect favors from people in the past. You don't encourage people to do favors for you, so that you are then tied to doing favors for them, who you feel burdened to do favors for them. Rather you want to do favors for them, without them having done

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

anything for you. And if you do that

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

It will bring you contentment in the dunya. And the greater contentment which is the contentment of the contentment of the Acura.

00:45:10--> 00:45:23

And there's no doubt that doing things for other people helping out other people is from the major means for a person to achieve contentment, in dystonia. And in the era,

00:45:24--> 00:45:35

doing things for other people looking out for other people being the one who rushes to help out people when they need help. This is what brings a person contentment in the dunya. And in,

00:45:36--> 00:46:15

the more you look out for other people, and you try to be the one who is giving not the one who is taking from people, not the one who is in need of help. And that doesn't mean your circumstances because you're not in control of what your circumstances are. But you're not the one who seeks and goes out looking for help for your problems we all have, we all have problems, but you're not rushing and looking for that help from people. You only want it from allies. And likewise, when you help people, you're looking to help other people with their problems. So you rush to help other people, but you don't rush for people to help you. That is the description of the one about whom

00:46:15--> 00:46:24

allies which has said well, so for your boss, this person will be truly content as for their contentment, in the accurate and we said

00:46:25--> 00:46:50

some of the scholars they they said these ayat were revealed about aboubaker. In fact, it's said that there is each method that the IRS will revealed about aboubaker there's consensus on the matter. And as we said, it doesn't have to be limited to that. So there's no doubt that abubaker is among the most is the most deserving of the people after the prophets and the messengers alliums, so that was selected to be mentioned with these characteristics, but it doesn't exclude others from having a part of that.

00:46:51--> 00:47:43

A part of that and from this is the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Lucha tilapia coolly an agenda. Allah will say to the people of gender. Yeah, hello, Jenna. Via coluna la bacova Sadiq. Well, hi Roku fi dache he will say Oh, people have gender. The people of gender will respond labayda Sadiq we hear a lot and we're answering your call or Allah and all good is in your hands. For your cool Hello Robbie. will say are you content?

They said how can we not be content or load when you have

00:47:43--> 00:47:48

00:47:49--> 00:48:16

vehicle LS lt f file I mean Derek will say Should I not give you better than that? for your call on your Rob? What are you saying are following valic they will say oh Lord, which thing is better than that? What is there that can be better than what you have given us before your kulu a halo la comme ridhwan Fela as hoppel la combat who

00:48:17--> 00:48:41

said that I will cause my pleasure and my contentment to be upon you and I will never be angry with you ever again. The Hadees reported by Bukhari and Muslim and also from the mid the Bukhari and Muslim statement of the Prophet size lm either de Hala al genitive agenda when the people of gender enter Paradise yaku terracotta Allah Allah will say to them

00:48:42--> 00:49:36

What when? Lm to criminal agenda what tonight Gina min and now did you not enter us into paradise? And did you not save us from the fire said that Allah will remove the veil that is between them and him and they have never been given anything more beloved to them than looking at the face of their Lord tabarka or to Allah looking at their Lord tabarka what Allah bless it and exalted. Well, so far your person will certainly be content with what Allah azza wa jal has given them the reward of allies or

00:49:36--> 00:49:59

a gel is what is more important. And that's what we should be connecting ourselves to make we said, a person who gives back what is given to them, this is good. A person is a good person, we're not taking anything away from that. But the person who does things without asking for anything hoping for anything or having anything that they have to pay back in the first place.

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

That person is the one who is striving for that contentment, that allies or a job that is with allies, that exceeds everything that a person has been given in the life of this world rather even exceeds everything that has been given to them from the blessings of gender. The contentment of Allah worried one amino Lai Akbar and the pleasure of Allah is better than all of that. And better than all of that is to look at the face of Allah azzawajal in paradise meal lies which will make you an eye from those who look upon the face of Allah azza wa jal in and for the dose of Allah in the highest part of paradise. Allies are jealous the one that we trust in to answer our and he is the
