One of the main themes of sorted out in Chicago is the results or consequences in the afterlife, right? It's one of the more central foundational doctrines in Islam and many other religious traditions, the idea of consequences in the afterlife. And consequences in the afterlife are essential for morality. You can't do without them, right? There's no such thing as true morality in this life without some sort of consequences that are going to happen after we die, right? Because this life, what's our experience of this life? Is our experience in this life true and perfect and 100%? Justice? No, it's not right, we see that people get wrong all the time. And then they, you

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

know, they get they get away with it, right, they get off scot free, nothing happens to them. And so we know that this isn't simply just

00:00:44 --> 00:01:21

a result of cruelty or randomness, or chaos or things like that. But these things are meant that we struggle with them in this life. And then we try to administer as much justice as possible as we can in this life. But we know that ultimately, everybody's going to get what they deserve in the next. And so almost data says something that's truly amazing, which is that what type of person would reject faith? What type of person would reject coming to believe in this sort of thing and this sort of accountability? And it has to do with basically not wanting to be held accountable, right, the people who are rejecting faith? It's not always just an issue of well, they don't have enough

00:01:21 --> 00:01:50

evidence or they're not convinced. Sometimes it is that but sometimes people just don't want to be held accountable. They don't want to deal with the consequences of what they have to do. They want to live life however they want to live right. And so I lost found data. You know, he says in the Holanda la hora I basically the person who ends up in the fire, he is somebody who believed that they would never or hoped that they would never be held accountable, that they would hope that they would never be resurrected, that they would they were hoping with a sort of wishful thinking that they were going to get away with it. And then Allah responds Bella in Navajo Canada, he Bill said, I

00:01:50 --> 00:02:23

was like, no, no, no, no, the whole time. Allah was watching him and was over him and was knowing what he did. Right? And so this, this puts a different perspective or adds a different dimension to the idea of cover, which is the rejection of faith and that not denial of faith. It's not simply just an absence of belief in the sense that oh, I'm not convinced that might be or might not be No, Allah says further down the surah right, he says, belly Ludhiana. Cafaro, you can the wound like the people who deny this there. It's not just that they don't believe they're lying, right? They're denying they're they're trying to put the cover over their eyes or trying to stick their fingers in

00:02:23 --> 00:02:41

their ears. They know that something's going to happen after the afterlife. They know that because something's going to happen the afterlife they have to act right in this world, but they don't want to to arrogant they want to rather have wishful thinking that they're gonna get away with doing whatever they want. And so they need to reject the faith as a justification for what they want to do in this life.
