i Previously in Surah Yunus, Allah azza wa jal reminded us that this world and everything in it, this life, and its trials and triumphs, none of it will last.
It is like the rain which falls and causes everything to bloom and ripen
with beautiful colors and sweet scents, yet before you have time to really enjoy it, Allah's decree is laid down and everything is gone, as if it had never existed at all. That's the life of this world. That's enjoyment in this world, the fun things that we are allowed, but the after life is complete the difference ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says next, well, Allahu he had to get up there. He said,
we have to do your show. We've said all the new stuff.
And the law invites to the home of peace, and He guides whom He wills to a straight path. Allah subhana wa Tada lays out for us a stark contrast between this life and the next in this life, every moment of enjoyment. Every moment of beauty and pleasure is fleeting. We work so hard we toil away, we sacrifice so that we can have a moment's rest. A few hours of leisure, a weekend a vacation, and before we know it, we're back to work. In this world, enjoyments does not last but the afterlife is different. A law calls us to Dar Salam,
the home of peace, from the Arabic root seen Lam Meem which means not just peace, but wholeness and completeness. Allah azza wa jal is calling us to it's the home of complete peace, the home of wholeness, because any piece that you have here, just like your leisure, just like your fun, guess what? It's not going to last you pay the rent, and you breathe a sigh of relief, but next month is going to come around and maybe your job isn't so stable.
You're healthy now. You have peace. But how long until you get sick once again, or injured? Your relationships are all smooth sailing for now. But how long until there is an argument? How long until a misunderstanding or a conflict piece here does not last? But Allah subhanho wa Taala calls to the the home of complete peace.
When the trumpet is blown, and you are resurrected, and you stand before Your Creator, and you say with sincerity that I believed and I tried my best. And you follow the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through the gates of paradise. Then you will understand peace.
No more sickness. No more heartache. No more rent, no more bills, no more sadness.
No more fear.
Allah subhana says now hopefully he won't yes or no.
They will experience neither fear nor sadness.
And the law says less marijuana if he had a loved one.
In the field, Amsterdam and Salama in paradise, they will not hear a foul speech not even a single word
nor sin. They will only hear it said Peace, peace.
And the loss of final dollar says when his outlet fees will go to him mean less than 30 minutes after he wants to inhale hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah
he had a warmer couldn't nearly Natalia.
Lola I'm Dawn Allah.
And we will remove whatever is in their hearts of resentment
while flowing beneath them are reversed and they will say Praise be to Allah who has guided us to this. We could never have been guided to this if Allah subhanaw taala had never guided us.
Complete perfect peace.
Inside and out. Allah subhanaw taala will even remove the resentment
and the hurt
from our hearts.
How do we get there?
What's the path to this completeness to wholeness to peace?
Allah said it in the verse we academia Sherpa Lila said All things opinion. It's the straight path as Allah subhanho wa Taala explained and sort of Al Fatiha, the path of the prophets. The same straight path that Allah has been calling us to from the time of alimony sit down.
And that is the path of tau hating. You can't feel peace if you think other powers are going to save you. You can't feel peace if you don't trust the loss of Hannah with the oddest plan for you. You can't feel peace if you don't realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala sees you and hears you and loves you perfectly.
Like the prophets of Allah Allah He was salam told him and I best Eva LTFS Allah are in the stands for staring Billa when you ask ask Allah
when you seek protection, seek protection from Allah and realize he continued so Allah Allah He was other than that if the entire nation were to gather together to help you, they could not help you with anything that wasn't already decreed by Allah.
And if they want to gather together to harm you in any way, they couldn't harm you, with anything that wasn't already decreed by Allah Subhana. That's the way to the home of perfect peace, daughter Selena. And the special thing about this path is that it does not only affect your afterlife, which is our priority, yes, and it's our main goal, but it will affect your life, here on Earth, as well.
If there's any such thing as peace on earth, it's not found in your external circumstances.
It's not found in your bank balance.
It's found in your internal submission to Allah. How many people do we know either personally or through the news who have every luxury on Earth and yet,
they are miserable
and stressed, Money cannot buy you a satisfied mind. But Allah calls you to the home of perfect peace. And he asks you to follow in this world, the path of guidance and internal peace, part of that path to peace in this life and the next is victory. remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala and constantly bringing your thoughts back to him. Allah says Allah Vina, amen. Oh, well Takoma in Nakuru Wuhan be the thriller, reader thriller. He talks about in noodle Palooza, those who have believed and whose hearts are made tranquil by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably by the remembrance of Allah hearts are made tranquil.
In explaining how to apply this verse, the son of gave several examples Mujahid and portada said, remembering Allah with the core end, Sophia and even Ariana said, remembering Allah by following his instructions, more thought and said, remembering Allah by Remembering his promise of paradise. All of these things and more fall under the category of Vic of remembering Allah and constantly bringing your thoughts back to him. It sounds quaint. In reality, it's profound. It sounds easy. In fact, it's one of the most difficult things to do.
And that's what makes it so important to our peace in the afterlife. And here on earth the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah on a Beatle can be highly illegal well as Canada in the Maliki come what are what are very high Vita Raja Chico? Were higher like home I mean, in fact in the heavy one word as well what it was higher electron mean and teleco I do work home photography boo. Now Tahoe why way of rebou Taco Palu Bella color Victrola for a while so it really should I tell you what action is the best. What app

All of the actions the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned are nothing if they aren't done sincerely for Allah, anyone can give money to charity. Anyone can go to the battlefield and kill or be killed. But what will stop someone from doing it with pride? What will stop someone from doing it for their own reputation or for their own material advantage? remembering Allah vicar keeps everything that you do pure and keeps you on track. It gives you the right perspective and the right priorities and it gives you peace. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said much termina are calm and he baited with the Utila

Well that could have a Mullah houfy men are in Davao when a group of people gather in one of Allah's houses to recite Allah's book, and study it together, peace and tranquility descend upon them.
They are enveloped in mercy. The angels cover them with their wings and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions them to those who are with him.
remembering Allah is Peace,
the Koran is peace, even our ritual prayer, the Salah is peace, the prophets of Allah Allah who was salam used to say to Beloved, when it was time to begin the prayer,
you know, give us rest with the prayer beloved,
to heed the vicar or n prayers This is set off almost a pain this is the straight path The path of the prophets. This is the path that leads to peace of Kulu Cody ha That was tough for the law Hollywood accompanies them equally them first of all in the whole of overall here.

email Maccabi and even cathedra mentioned in their works of tafsir multiple Hadith some collected by email Muslim, others collected by em ashmit and necessity in addition to others at the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah He was explained this verse saying that at first not the best means Jana, or paradise, and zyada or extra is seeing Allah subhanahu wa Tada in paradise. As Toby said in his tafsir This is the interpretation of Abu Bakar and our lead and for the for an abbess and ergodicity massaman and Abu Musa Ashari and Soheila and it is the correct interpretation. Those admitted to Paradise will see their Lord Allah subhanho wa Taala in the afterlife, just like the Prophet
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith agreed upon by Al Bukhari and Muslim. Are you ready? Hooray.
Why have you started either probably a long run homer in a concert or on camera Tirana terminal later to the better, will commend Tarana shamsur saquon Laser Duna has the hub water to the moon, I feel Yeti will definitely, certainly you will see your Sustainer just as you see the moon when it's full, or like the sun when there are no clouds, you will have no trouble seeing him at all.
Finally, the true empirical certainty that the skeptics have always demanded will exist, but it will only be for the people of paradise. The people who believed in this world, we will finally get to see the one who has loved us, the one who provided for us, the one who forgave us and had mercy on us this entire time.
And everything that we suffered will be a distant, distant memory.
How do we get there? Allah tells us in the verse, the Latina accent,
for those who do good for those who have access, for those who excel for those who strive.
We learn a few things here first, faith is action. There's no separating the two, a high hypothetical situation where there is faith, but no action does not exist. Anybody can claim they have faith. But where's the action to prove it? And that means for us, practically speaking, that our faith must make a difference in our lives. If becoming more observant of your faith results in you being less patient, or less merciful or less forgiving or less forbearing, then I'm not sure what faith you are observing, but you're not doing it right.
Your faith should increase you in grace. It should increase you in helpfulness and in thoughtfulness everyone should benefit from it. And everybody should notice a difference.
How many generations of young Muslims have been chased away from the masjid or even from Islam itself by the harsh behavior of other Muslims?
I don't know which Koran they're reading from but the Koran that I read says Febi mal Mateen min Allah He didn't tell him what kinds of Fontbonne Lolita volleyball I'll be Langford domain Holic fat one who must don't feel alone. So by mercy from Allah or Mohammed, you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude, or if you had been a harsh, they would have abandoned you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness from them. If the best generation that Companions would have fled from the best of mankind to the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah and he was
if he had been harsh,
then what about us? If we are rude and harsh?
No one would stick around
the Koran Irene says Muhammadan rasul Allah when Medina Rasheeda and confetti Rohana obey Allah.
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and those who are with him are forceful against the deniers merciful among themselves. That's the first lesson faith is action. The second lesson is that when it comes to action, quality is much more important than quantity. Allah azza wa jal says at the beginning of Surah, till milk Allah, Allah Allah Azza wa Hayato Leah but they were called a Yukon axon or am Allah, He who created death and life to test as to which of you was best indeed, not most in deed. The Companions were concerned about making their actions more sincere.
They were not concerned about making them more numerous.
One of the early pious scholars, or you have a subsidiarity Rahima, who love us used to wake up long before fetching every night to recite the core am and pray.
But every morning, when it was almost time for Fudger, he would take his candle
and blow it out. And he would take his covers and hide underneath his covers, until someone from his household came to wake him up.
This is the extent that he would go to, so that his worship was a secret between him and Allah. completely secret with no temptation to show off, not even in front of his own household.
If sin is what we're going for, and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described excellent and terrible, does Allah get an account at all? For in lemon TOCOM Tara who for in the WHO Yurok worshipping Allah azza wa jal, as if you see him.
And if you can't reach that level, then at least worshiping Him, knowing that he sees you.
As that woman Jin Solana the results corresponds to the action worship Allah subhana like you see him in this life, and you will get to see him in the next
