One of the main points of sorts of shots is that Allah subhanaw taala is in control, right? A lot of xojo. He has several sort of rhetorical questions that he asked in the beginning, haven't we expanded your * or expanded your chest or caused you to, you know, kind of have ease? Right? Haven't we done this for you? Haven't we ease your burden? Haven't we increased your reputation and your memory? Right among people? This is something that we think you know, when we usually think about these things, we're like, Okay, I have to do X, Y, and Z. How do I leave a legacy? Right? Some people are really like, you know, into their, their legacy these days. And Allah is just telling the

00:00:37 --> 00:01:11

Prophet Mohammed Salah is southern Minnesota, that, you know, he's the one that basically did it. He's the one that gave Mohamed Salah Salem a legacy similar to what we talked about and Surah Al Caltha, right? The means don't apply when Allah azza wa jal decides otherwise, right? Maybe most people the legacy is having lots of kids and having a lineage and having another prophesy. Some didn't have any sons that survived. But Allah azza wa jal made him the most famous person in the world, the most common first name is Muhammad on the face of the earth today, right. And so first lesson from the surah is that a lot can do it. If you have a burden, a lot can remove it. If you

00:01:11 --> 00:01:47

want a reputation, you want to Legacy A lot can do it despite everything else. And the second lesson, this is what Allah subhanaw taala ends the surah on is that if things are tough for you right now, then you need to have a plan and prepare for when things are less tough, because you're going to get to a point where you're going to be relieved of your burden. That's just the cycle of things. Everything it just keeps on cycling through hardship and ease, hardship and ease, hardship and ease. What are you going to do when it's time for ease? What should you do? A law says fun sob, right? Like once you once you have been rid of your troubles, or the thing that you were going

00:01:47 --> 00:02:21

through that was tough, now's the time to get to work. Now's the time to show your gratitude and show your appreciation in lots of other places in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala blames people for getting lacks after he removes their difficulty from the people they throw themselves into worship. You know, when things are tough, oh, Allah helped me help me if you helped me out that make promises if you helped me I'll do this. If you help me I'll do that. And then the burden is ease and then what do they do? So I go, Okay, back to normal. Right? There is no normal, right? So Allah subhanaw taala wants us to prove our gratitude by actually getting the work and working harder once we're

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

past our difficulties.
