we will conclude our series on so it's a short
translated out of the poets.
Last week we saw how Allah azza wa jal referenced the stories of several prophets to show us what it looks like to be trustworthy. What it looks like to be sincere. And through showing us the excuses put forward by their people. Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us what it looked like when people were not sincere. And when people are not acting in good faith.
In fact, if we were to boil down sort of the short route to one message, or one theme, it would be how people react to a lot of signs, how they react according to their various levels of sincerity.
But this is not just a history lesson. Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the stories of people long ago, but he is directly addressing a flesh who now have to choose which path they will follow. Now, though, as my job has sent His signs,
will they go the path of
imagining that they can outmaneuver a lot of the Almighty?
Well, they go the path of a lot. And then the other nations who blew off all the warnings that came to them, until finally it was too late?
Or will they go the path of the magicians who started out in error, and then they get a red spot when they were confronted with the truth? They submitted to
a lot of junk status. Now the question of provenance of a loved one anything was to them directly, or in the bulletin to me, that's a debatable opinion on Obamacare, isn't gonna
be decided. I mean, this is certainly a revelation from the Lord of all the universe, which the trustworthy spirits to bring to life loud down to your hearts, oh province, so that you may be one of the Warner's in a clear Arabic tongue.
Here almost kind of stresses the continuity of profits with all the profits mentioned earlier in this chapter, we're links in the same chain. And what happens on the lower end, what sometimes is the final link in that chain? In this sense, our faith is not smooth. Our religion in terms of our nakida, in terms of our theology is not just 1400 years old. This is the original message, the original teachings of the Creator that there is only one unique God who controls everything in love and mercy and will administer perfect justice upon the end of this world.
This perfect creator loves His creation and favored them with guidance, which he consistently sent intervals walking with messengers to bring people back to those original teachings when they have lost their way. What if we did another one?
whether or not, and it has indeed been foretold in the scriptures of those before was it not enough proof for the miners that it has been recognized by God who's knowledgeable people on the children of Israel
when the profit will happen, so the local radio system appeared in Makkah and Medina, he was recognized by the sincere scholars of authentic revelation around him.
One of them was October, if it's Sinha I believe in Savannah because of the sense of use of money
and a rabbi from the Jewish tribe of Piper PA, in Medina.
When the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina,
aka Laban salaam approached the prophets of Allah
I will ask you three questions that only a prophet without
first one can
is the first sign of the last day.
Number two, what's the first thing that the people of Paradise will needs?
And number three, why does the child resemble either his father or his mother? A prophet Muhammad, it's a little odd for someone to answer that, as for the first sign of the last day, it will be an enormous fire that starts in the east and gathers everyone in the West.
As for the first food that's eaten in paradise, it will be fished.
And as for why children, for example, one parent or the other, it depends on which one experiences climax first.
So that replied that video immediately I bear witness that you are Allah's Messenger.
Then he said that the prophets of Allah,
listen, my people are slanderous. And they learn that I have become a Muslim, they will start to slander me to call them here and ask them about me while I go Hi.
To the prophets of Allah wanting to call for some of the other rabbis when they came, he asked them who is this man?
They replied, He is our rabbi and his father was a rabbi as well. He's the most knowledgeable one among that a second, his father was just as knowledgeable.
Profits a long way he was asked
if he were to accept Asana, would you then accept this not to?
They replied, may Allah forbid that from ever happening.
At that point, I felt it so that came out from behind his hiding place so that everyone could see him.
In the law, like were witnesses there is no deity worthy of worship, except for Allah was
able to sue and I bear witness that what happened is sufficient to translate the law.
As soon as he said this, the other robots started slandering him, saying, This guy has always been a phony, he's the worst of us and his father was just as bad. He is the most ignorant one from Allah says his father was just the same way.

So mad is an exploration for anyone who has made sacrifices to find the truth.
raised SSR, Austria,
he heard the call of Tao Hadith from traveling Christian monks. He followed them, leaving his homeland behind. They told him that a prophet was going to appear on all the arrows in a few jazz, and they told him what to look for. How to know who this prophet was
said about a fantasy Arabia,
to travel with some Arab merchants to the gods and the tricks. They actually really took him as a slave and sold him in the markets in Medina.
There he waited patiently.
From time to time, he would overhear this master talking about my man and Mexico claiming to be a province. One day he learned that that man was migrating to Medina. So settlement gathered a little bit of food that he could, and actually went all the way to Cuba, to meet the prophets a little off
and to greet him.
Sometime I was going to test them.
He offered them food, and said, you and your companions are the nice people. So here's some charity that I've gathered for you. And he stood back and he watched.
And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he commanded his companions in the poodle eat, but he himself did not eat.
He passes the first test.
So back to Medina and when the prophets of Allah arrived there said Malik fallacy visited visited him again with even more food. This time, he said, I noticed that you did not eat what I donated in charity. So here it is.
Here is a gift from me to you and your companions. And he stepped back and washed his time the prophets of Allah told his companions to eat and he also need to
pass a second test.
Finally. So when the Pharisee, again visited the province of Allah, on the third time, while he was talking to his companions at this time, some man was looking for a mark, that he was told it would be on one prophet saw
back in between the shoulder blades, so sometimes starts circling around the problem happens a lot, trying to be discreet about it so that you can catch a glimpse of the sun when the prophets of Allah knew right away when he was trying to do. So he took his upper garment and he lowered it. So let's see the Marmont between the shoulder blades,
something that starts crying and falls to the ground and bears witness. There's no there was no doubt I separate a lot. I miss a lot
of a lot. And then he begins to tell the story, as the Companions LISTEN to Him with all for everything that he had been through. As a lot as I said, when I look at somebody's company, I would have never had any audit who would have nobody saw him. And it has been deemed that foretold that the scriptures and those before was not enough proof for that is that it has been recognized by the knowledgeable ones from among the children of Israel.
Anyone who sincerely wants it to follow the truth, would have taken note of these events. The conversion of Ebola in Sudan, the conversion of some massive fantasy would have given them pause. It wouldn't have made them stop and think.
But most of them
were not sincerely searching for the truth.
And we're simply making excuses. As a logical joke indicates in the very next verse. What does that

And the large is warning them so that they don't end up like the nations before them. And yes, Allah azza wa jal promises to be fair.
And he actually attests to his rhetoric of justice, while not

For we would never wrong, anyone.
If a lot I saw a gentleman had sent punishments to a nation without having sensitive order. They might have an excuse on the day of judgments. They might be able to say, look, we didn't have a fair shot at this. We were misled.
The fact that Allah azza wa jal says Don't Google trustworthy messengers from that literary community that he is testing leaves no room for doubt that the people who rejected those signs and rejected those messengers are not ignoramus, but rather aggregates and so they deserve what's coming.
A lot from agenda continues to block any imaginable excuse or doubts What about this format? Is it really match

Allah subhana wa Tada puts a swift end. To that doubt, it is impossible for any evil force to send it down these verses or produce them in any way how could they when it is beyond their powers. And the message that it carries guides people to righteousness, alive through Delta saying that you can trust this for 100% So submitted to it. And the guidance that it brings Allah azza wa jal that says when she
wore your closest relatives,
Allah azza wa jal
tells us that all guidance starts at home. The very beginning is to work on yourself. As we said last week, we cannot be trusted until we are trustworthy.
And we have no right to expect trust if we are not trustworthy.
And once we begin fixing ourselves and developing ourselves and reforming ourselves, then we have to put our phones in order.
It does not benefit our own lives that we engage to dabble into non Muslims, the Dow abroad and Dow here if that was if we don't even have an Islamic environments in our homes.
Yes, it's more difficult.
Yes, it can be uncomfortable. But Allah azza wa jal tells us that our greatest responsibility is to those closest to us that Allah says, Walk with Jenna, live and
So that will give
and be gracious, Be gracious to the believers who follow you. But if they disobey that, say, I am certainly free from what you do.
This verse shows us
how to strike the perfect balance within our own ranks. As a Muslim community, we must be loyal to each other.
We must love one another. We must help one another and look out for one another and be merciful to one another.
If someone says anything bad about anyone in our community, we make an excuse for them, we defend them.
we don't fall into tribalism. We don't call into blind support.
If one of us does something that is wrong,
whether it's mistreated.
Or if unsettling came to watch a corner store. Or if it's moving the security cameras in the magazine to take something from the donation box.
We will call a spade a spade. We will say that is wrong. That is not as fun. We have nothing to do with that action.
And some of us might get angry.
If someone calls out something that we're doing wrong. We feel like we've been betrayed.
We feel maybe like our Muslim identity should have protected us from criticism. Oh, no, no. Don't get it twisted. It's not that we're not loyal to you. It's because we're loyal to you that we care what's going to happen to you after you die. We didn't.
We didn't pray after you.
And all the people who are encouraging you to do wrong and are silent about you doing wrong. They are not your real friends. They don't care what's going to happen to you. And let's wait and see if they even show up at your finances.
As long as we just said it's what's
what's up our logo is Saturday, of course. Put your
Trust that Allah, the Almighty, the most merciful, who sees you when you arrive for prayer at night, as well as your movements in prayer along with your fellow worshipers, he alone is indeed all hearing and all knowing.
Focus on yourself.
Focus on yourself and trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah sees you. Allah sees you, even if the entire creation doesn't see you a lot of sees you.
And you don't need anyone else's approval, except the loss of karma. You need the approval of your creative.
All the other people that you're trying to get their approval are not worth your time. If you build your relationship with Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal will always guide your wedding
that was cut off time Tala flips the skirts on those who just a minute ago claim that the forehand was being brought down by the devil tend to be the
same as the one that will be affected as the deal cool in a semi guttural can be Shall I inform you of the devils actually Decepticon.
They descended upon every simple wire that passes on whatever they hear. And most of them are liars of corn
or beans being exposed for the hypocrites that they are in this. They pretend that they are concerned with the truthfulness of the poor and they pretend that they are concerned about where it comes from and how it is coming down.
With gossip columns, when slander comes when lies come, all of the sudden they suspend any sort of skepticism. They're the first ones to be
like when we're talking about the afterlife. We're talking about Revelation. We're talking about accountability and goals that justice.
Now we want a full investigation.
We find similar attitudes and many people today. They will believe many, many straight tables with very, very little evidence but when it comes to
when it comes to believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala when it comes to believing in the resurrection, all of a sudden, they are the world's biggest skeptic.
A lot I feel each other exposes this hypocrisy and the last time colic and the chapter with the verses that gift this chapter is saying the poet's will show on Bravo. It took me a little while until I could be working and people will hook up Luna
and the poets. They are only followed by people who are astray. Don't you see that the Romans every now he's saying things that they don't do?
Allah subhanaw taala mentions poets theory.
And in reality, this extends to all entertainers, including actors, singers, comedians and wrappers. Anyone whose livelihood is made from entertaining other people, while also kind of on top of that mentions them here, after exposing the hypocrisy of the poor, right?
Because anyone who entertains other people for a living is tested with a popper See,
such a person is chasing the laughs they're chasing the applause, chasing the likes and the follows.
It's very, very difficult for such a person to be sincere.
It's so difficult for them to be sincere because it goes against their material interests.
And we need to be very, very careful as parents, about introducing our children to a universe and ecosystem in which
the people who are praised are the ones with the most likes, and the most shares and the most followers,
a platform that encourages other people to be hypocritical.
There is a reason that these platforms are strongly correlated with depression in adolescents and teenagers. Because adolescents and teenagers are smart.
And deep down, they can sense that it's all fake. And it's all.
And while these platforms as well as the entertainers of our society are spiritually dangerous, even for mature adults, let alone
adolescents and teenagers it's not oh
there is room for positive influence to shine through and a loss of time without actually tenants the chapter on this note in

a funny thing is
except for those who believe it too good and remember last time it was on offense and use their skills to advantage the believers after they have been home.
The wrongdoers will eventually come to know what type of available games
everything in this world depends on how you use
whatever talents you have, whatever skill that you have if you use it for a lot of sake if you use it to please Allah subhana wa Tada and defend the people of faith
you won't have any regrets and you will be given peace and serenity in this life
