Mohammed Ali here for the solo as cancer Salim Allahu Marlena million found no one found to be my attempt and I was even eliminate a lot. I mean, Santa Monica went off to LA, he would occur to everybody. Welcome to our final installment of the Tafseer of Surah Surah. And I'm somebody that we've finally made it to the last two page spread.

00:00:18--> 00:01:03

And we had been, remember the main point, the main idea of sorts of anime is a Lost Found data is re asserting his exclusive authority to tell us what is valid religion? And what is invalid religion? What does it look like to express gratitude to the Creator, and what is not recognized as a valid expression of that gratitude? Somebody I was listening to recently, they put it in a beautiful way they said, it doesn't matter as much what you identify as, as what you are identifiable as, and that sums it up real well, because you can identify as being worshiping the Creator of All the Worlds or being grateful or being humble or being pious or righteous or sincere. But what really matters is

00:01:03--> 00:01:44

those eyes Does Allah subhanaw taala identify you as such are you identifiable as somebody who is grateful as somebody who is sincere, and that's why I was found the other takes down all these different taboos and superstitions and false beliefs and false practices that the coloration others had invented for themselves throughout sorts of Lebanon. And then he had just brought us to a point towards the end, where he empowers the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and tells him to say, Listen, tell them to gather around here is what is actual Revelation Here is what Allah subhanaw taala actually forbids from you or allows to you and there was a long list of things right. So he began by

00:01:44--> 00:02:30

saying to Allah atsu Malhotra Mirrabooka Maliko say He's instructing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell them to gather around I will he's this is the mouth of the prophesy said I will recite to you what your Sustainer has forbidden you from first Allah to Suiko be he che that you not associate or worship anything else besides him? Oh by the way it Danny Santa and that you respect your parents or have excellence towards them? What at tackle Tolu I will add a comment am laughing Nana Zuko calm what ie home and that you don't kill your children out of fear of poverty. And Allah spawns Allah makes a promise that we will give you sustenance and them to what our chakra bolsa

00:02:30--> 00:03:10

Heisha, mahavihara mean how a man Lachlan and Subhanallah, we were talking about this the other day with sexuality, the full wa Haish, right, the indecency that we see in society today, even the public library, I was telling one of the other one of my colleagues that even at the public library in Utica, New Hartford, June is right around the corner, and you're going to find a lot of propaganda that is spreading LGBTQ ideology. My daughter had picked up a book about penguins. And I handled it I was able to intervene in time. The book starts by saying, Oh, it's springtime, and all the penguins they're pairing up male and female. But there were two males that were different from

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

the rest.

00:03:12--> 00:03:43

And they spend all their time together. And they did everything together. And the they had no interest in the female penguins. And then the zookeepers are about to say, Yeah, well, this is right down. This is right down the street. And the zookeepers notice that oh, they're in love. And now they want to build a nest like the other penguins, and they gather eggs like the other penguins, even though they're two boy penguins. So I'll hit it and this isn't a unit comparable, I have it in my apartment right now. Because we had taken it out of the public library, it was there on display. Right? So this is for

00:03:46--> 00:04:25

class, this is this is one of the most indecent things that you can imagine. And here it is front and center in your face and targeted at our children. These days so Allah's found Tada, it's one of it makes his list at the end of certain and I am one of the things that he is forbidden. Right? And that not only that you not to Neff fifth, right, or to top deck that not only that you not apply it, but you don't even get close to it. He says well, that telco Allah Tatara will for Heisha model Hara minha well my bottom that you don't even approach it. You don't even walk that first step to get down. That's why I lost found data elsewhere in the Quran. He says, What are the top Bureau called

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

the words he shaytaan? Right? What's the difference between following the devil and following his footsteps? Nobody in their right mind would follow the devil. You see this? This red guy with horns and a pitchfork or something like that. I want to be like that guy. I'm gonna follow him and see where he's going. Nobody would do that. But you see some footsteps in the sand. And you think, Huh, I wonder where they go. You don't know who left them. You don't know whose footsteps those are. But then you follow them one at a time one at a time and then once you figure out whose footsteps they are, it's too late last fall in taba.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Don't play around with Flash don't play around with sexual indecency and corruption don't even get close to it. Well that's a Cthulhu NAFSA let's see how Ramallah who elaborate Huck and do not remove a soul do not kill a soul that Allah is prone to otter has made inviolable, except with due rights, and that do right has to do with legitimate Jihad and capital punishment established by the state and things like that, that ecomo Sercombe that Allah comes out soon. So on the next page, and this is starting the last two pages of the surah Allah has found that Allah continues this list of Maha rahmat real Mohamed's real things that we're not allowed to do not the phony things that the court

00:05:39--> 00:06:24

had invented for themselves. Well that toggleable mal Alia team in lability here Assam and do not again, Allah says approach don't even come close to the wealth of the orphan, except which, except with that which wet which is better, right. And it's permissible to take the wealth of an orphan and to invest it if you're sincere, and you're looking to provide for the best interest of that orphan. But when it comes to actually doing anything with it, Allah subhanaw taala says, don't even come close to an inability here, Assam hat, you have a logo issued until that orphan achieves puberty achieves the age of maturity, and then you surrender that wealth to that person. A lot continues,

00:06:24--> 00:07:09

whoa, full kale. Well, me Zan will test and make sure that you fulfill the tail has to do with, with volume measure what it means and has to do with weight measure, make sure that you measure with justice, right, and this mean has a literal meaning. And it has a figurative meaning, the literal meaning, it means when you go to the store, and you say I want five kilos of, or five pounds of meat, or olives or whatever, that you're going to get every single thing that's coming to you that you give every single thing, okay, you don't have a store, you don't sell olives or anything. What does that look like? Oh, maybe that looks like every single second of your timecard or everything

00:07:09--> 00:07:45

single second of your timesheet. You're there on the job. You're getting paid. It's during time, there's not a break time, you're actually supposed to be working, you're scrolling through Facebook, you're scrolling through Instagram, you're stealing the seconds from your employer. This is not the behavior of a Muslim. Okay, now, if you have a break time you have 10 minutes break, it's not assume right? It's actually in there, then that's something else. But when you're on the clock, you're supposed to be working. And you take part of that work, and you cheat your employer out of it. This is something where you fall into this, you're giving less. And if someone were to treat you the same

00:07:45--> 00:08:28

way, how would you respond? You would be upset? When you hire somebody to do a job. We hire people to build the machine. Okay, they miss a deadline. Where are they? Oh my god. Again, another delay. This is too much. Right? When you hire somebody, you expect them to meet every deadline to be working around the clock, if that's what you pay for. That's what you assume that you've paid for. However, when it's you, when you're the person that's hired, the neffs leans towards laziness and the shaytaan wants to give us rationale and reasons why it's okay. We don't want to give our full or are all so Allah subhanaw taala says stay away from this Whoa, full Kala means no build, test. Learn

00:08:28--> 00:09:08

who can live and Allah Subhana Allah, just like before, remember, just a second ago. He said don't kill your or don't kill your children. Okay. But he didn't stop there. Because Allah subhanaw taala is merciful. And he knows that we're intelligent people. And so he deals with the doubts, why are people killing their children? No, Zuko, what he, we're going to take care of them. You end them. So Allah Subhana Allah is merciful enough not just to say, hey, trust me just Just do what I say. No, no, I'm going to also tell you the reason I'm going to give you the sustenance, you're afraid, you're afraid that you're not going to have enough, I'm promising you that you're going to get

00:09:08--> 00:09:49

enough. Now Allah does the same thing over here. Just as he says, just as he says, make sure that you fill the scales that you give everybody their due. He makes a comment Len Kelley for nefs. And in levels Aha. He says, Don't fear that this is a burden for you. We do not expect or burden anybody with more than they can truly bear. We do not ask anybody to do anything beyond their capacity. Sometimes maybe a few people usually this isn't the case. But sometimes people go to the opposite extreme. Right? They start to almost like in a sense of West West, right? They start to worry that they've cheated someone they've cheated somebody or they've stolen something from them or they've

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

not done enough, right Allah spoke to Allah says, Listen, there's zoodle Right? There's there's mistakes and there's shortcomings everybody's gonna have Okay, every single one of us has probably

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

done something on the clock that probably was not exactly what we were supposed to be doing. Okay and Allah is the folder Rahim The thing is that we try and Allah is found Allah does not burden somebody does not burden a soul with more than they can bear. What you that Putin Thadeus. And when you speak be just so that, when you speak be just,

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

that means not going to if fraud or to free, it's not going to one extreme or the other. And we're gonna see some examples of this. So I was gonna say

00:10:30--> 00:11:12

that they know what wallow Kana, therefore about if you give if you speak, which is the general wording, but then also some of the scholars or tafsir. They say specifically when you're giving testimony, speak the truth, even if it is a relative. We had a situation here in the city some months ago, Syrian family, the girl was caught out with some guys. Okay, and the family beat her up. The family beat her to an inch of her life. Unfortunately, and this is ignorance. This is not from a snap this type of behavior. The cops got called the cops take the family away, because they beat up their daughter, of course, what are they going to do?

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

They reached out to people in the message feed, asking us to bear witness that they didn't do it. She had at the zoo.

00:11:22--> 00:12:03

They asked us to testify that not that this was an accident or something happened or whatever. They basically wanted us to lie on their behalf. Can we lie on their behalf? Can we tell the police with a straight face? Hey, no, this didn't happen. Of course not a Muslims word. This is honor. If you say something, that means that that's the truth. And we take people at their honor, that means people can make mistakes, right? Like we judge people buy their intentions. But the fact that the person is a Muslim or not a Muslim doesn't affect whether we tell the truth or not. The fact that the person has dark skin or light skin, or is from your homeland, or is from your tribe does not

00:12:03--> 00:12:25

affect whether we tell the truth or not. Well either go to him for a little while Oh Canada for the most likely person that you would lie on their behalf is that Puerto Rico is the person that's close to you. Your relative you don't want to see your son, your cousin, your father, anything get locked up. But Allah subhanaw taala wants you to speak the truth. The truth is more important.

00:12:27--> 00:13:07

Well, the act the law he Ofu Allah is bound to Allah just as he says look transferrable skills before Allah subhanaw taala had said, worship Allah do not associate anything with Him and worship and to parents, SN. And we talked about how those are very similar because you have a debt to your parents. Just like you have a debt to a lot you come into this world you didn't choose to be born, you didn't choose who your parents are. You also didn't choose to be you know, to be created. And so just like you have a debt to your parents, you have a debt to Allah so Allah puts them right here together. Here, a last final Tada. He just said, Be just okay. Take care of your,

00:13:08--> 00:13:22

your promises, the things that you say if you speak be just and then he says what we asked the law he Ofo and what is the most important contract or agreement to uphold as the contract and agreement with a loss found out

00:13:23--> 00:14:01

if other people deserve our trust, than who's more deserving than our trust than a lost power of data if other people deserve our honesty, then who's more deserving of our honesty than a loss of pounds audit that equal most saw can be the Allah come to the karoun before the previous verse, the last round dad had said the same exact thing except one different word that he can Warsaw can be the aliquam Tachyon. He said this is something that we have left as an inheritance for you something to follow, so that hopefully you would use your reason so that hopefully you would give thoughts and here are lost found out it says the same thing. That equal Masako Mahela calm this is something

00:14:01--> 00:14:09

we've given to you as an inheritance. So that perhaps you would say that you would remember you would give you a take heed.

00:14:11--> 00:14:47

None of us found out us as well and the harvest said all the most up to 10 foot Tebbe rule. And this is my straight path, everything that he just laid out for a starting with shipwreck and avoiding it. So he'd worshiping a lost power to other parents for why he's staying away from it, staying away from murder, staying away from all these different things, the money of the orphan, staying away from cheating, right? All these different things. This is my way straight. So follow it. And then Allah subhanaw taala says one of the more important ads in the entire court and while that Tebbe Oh, Sue will and don't follow the other ways.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

This is mutual exclusivity. Some people they take some verses out of context, the verse in Surah tillbaka some verse in sorts of married and they say, it doesn't matter if you're a Christian, you're a Jew. You're a major in

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

Is this or that the other they're all okay? They're all okay, that's fine. I thought I said, well, that had to be real soon. Do not follow the other ways, this is my way right here and do not follow the other ways. Why what's going to happen if you follow the other ways that fell rock, Bobby come

00:15:19--> 00:15:44

on severely. If you follow the other ways, you're going to be separated from his way. Allahu Akbar, when it comes to the truth, and this isn't talking about the fifth difference of opinions from people that make it's the leather belt, they take things and they put them in the wrong places. We're talking about at the end we're talking about religions are talking about P though we're talking about men hedge, we're talking about the whole thing, right? The only way as a slap.

00:15:45--> 00:15:51

The other way is if you follow them, it will lead you astray, it will actually take you far from the path of a loss pounds out.

00:15:52--> 00:16:25

And within that path of a loss of power to artists, some of the secondary matters in the deen, there's various interpretations and those are valid. We've talked about those a lot when we pray also. Right. There is Hanafi Yasser, and then there's the gem hold, where you put your hands and salah, okay, you put it beneath your belly button or above your belly button. Do you raise your hands at every tech lead? These are things that the scholars have differed on, and they actually go back to the Companions even then companions different about them. Okay, you're going to end the difference that occurred between the best of creation, the best generation, the companions were

00:16:25--> 00:17:06

better than us. If they couldn't end it, we're not going to end it either. This is not the type of thing that Allah's raw data is talking about in this verse, He's talking about different Arquitetos different belief systems. If you follow anything other than Allah's way, you're actually being removed and separated from his way that he can Masakan be that Allah content. tekun Allah says one more time, and he changes the last word. He said tacking on said hopefully that you would use your reason that got on, hopefully that you would be reminded. And now he says, that Allah can tackle that you will be righteous. Notice Allah subhanaw taala, again asserts his right to define what is

00:17:06--> 00:17:43

righteousness, you don't get to define what's righteousness, you don't get to say, well, you know, we have all these interfaith events, and the Christians and the Jews and the Hindus, and every way is the same, and they're all acceptable, and nothing really is more true than the next. And you act like this is humbleness, and you act like this is piety. You act like this is righteousness. Allah subhanaw taala gets to decide what's righteousness, not you. And we respect everybody. This doesn't have to do with anything. We have to respect individual human beings and their rights and their safety. That's not what we're talking about. But don't expect me to come and say that what you

00:17:43--> 00:18:16

believe is right, no, I think what you believe is completely wrong. Even if I think that you deserve to be safe and, and these sorts of things, two different things. Allah subhanaw taala defines righteousness. And this is what righteousness is righteousness is following his path to the exclusion of the other paths. If you follow the other paths, you're actually being separated from his path. None of us found to Allah reminds us, okay, he's talking about the path. Alright, great. If you've been paying attention, then you should be motivated at this point. You want to follow the path that the last thought I sent out?

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

How you going to do it? You're going to it's going to come to you in a dream? No, you have to rely on the way you have to rely on the revelation, which is why I lost funds. Then he says from Tina Musella kita tamamen Allah Allah the axon,

00:18:34--> 00:18:44

what I've seen in the quarterly shake, well, who does what OCMA La La homebuilder, PA, Robbie him you know, a lot brings our attention to the revelation given to Musa

00:18:46--> 00:19:24

which was complete, as it was given to him not as, not as it exists now. But as it was given to him it was complete. And it spelled out everything for them. And it was guidance and it was mercy. So that the Allah home vilify, robbing him, you know, and so that they would believe in the meeting with their Lord. That's where it was all going. And we've talked about how that's the most fundamental thing to being held accountable. And being righteous is believing in the high set, believing in some sort of account in the afterlife. But that's not the end of the story. When it comes to Revelation, because Allah Spano Tata gave the toad off to Musa alayhis salam, he gave him

00:19:24--> 00:19:29

the Kitab and it was TMM. And it was perfect as he gave it to him. But then what happened?

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

Then the Jews were overrun, they were taken into captivity, not once but twice, and they lost the Torah, and they tried to rewrite it, but they couldn't rewrite. It was gone. And so it necessitated more revelation and that's why I lost finally the other says, we'll have that keytab on Enza now whom about I couldn't that be oh, what up? Whoo. Isla come to our honeymoon. Allah subhanaw taala says and this just like that was a book. This Koran is a book. We have sent it down it is blessed and as blessing

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

was in it mobile, that the URL, so follow it. Just like we commanded the children of Israel to follow their book, we're commanding you to follow this book, and fear Allah and be aware of Allah be righteous, that Allah come to our honeymoon. If you are, then Allah Subhana Allah will have mercy for you. And to Kulu Allah subhanaw taala. Now, he's going to stop all the excuses, right? Because some people may ask, Well, why did Allah sponsor other half to reveal this particular book, to this particular group of people, and the Kulu in my own zeal, Al Kitab, who Allah if a tiny miracle Berlina so that nobody could say

00:20:39--> 00:20:58

that revelation was only given to these two groups, the Jews and the Christians, and therefore excused themselves. I say, Oh, nothing was ever given to us. How are we supposed to know? Right? You come from Somalia, you come from West Africa, you come from Bangladesh, you come from wherever

00:20:59--> 00:21:15

you could say, I never heard of the Jews of the Christians. No revelation was given to me. Why should I have to be believe anything? I didn't know what was going on? No, no, no. This book has been spread across the entire world to the exception of the other books this book has been preserved

00:21:16--> 00:21:46

to the exception of the other books and so nobody has any excuse nobody can say oh well you know revelation wasn't given to me know the Quran has been sent revelation has been given to you. Mean property now we're in COULDNA. On the raw set to him level feeding. We didn't have any idea about this stuff. We were ignorant. Second excuse Allah deals with outer Kulu low and not on Zillow and Al Kitab. Who could nah, I mean home.

00:21:47--> 00:22:01

That if only we had been given the book. This is the Monday morning quarterback. Right? If we had been given the book, we would have been even better than them. We would have followed it better than they did. These guys. These jokers.

00:22:02--> 00:22:13

They're doing it all wrong. Right you see Ronaldo and Messi right? This they missed the sitter. Nice slow cross coming in across the goalie goes open messes it skies over the net.

00:22:15--> 00:22:57

Come on. I could have done that. Yeah, but you could write or on Sunday. Right? The ball is coming. You've got 300 pound lineman coming at you trying to rip your head off. And then the guy you know, Bibles, it in the endzone. Oh man, I could have made that catch. Okay. There's a reason that you're not out there playing on Sundays. This is the attitude of these people as well. They said or they would have said if the Quran hadn't been given to them. They would have said, if we had been given a book than we would have followed it better. We would have found a better than the Christians and the Jews file their books last month Allah says bet. All right, we're gonna see here you go. Let's see

00:22:57--> 00:22:57

what you do with it.

00:22:59--> 00:23:30

And the rest is history. That's why jet comm was founded as fat. Okay, if that's hockey, that Ajah Colombina Tomio rugby calm so therefore there has come to you clarity, clear signs. bayyinah min rugby come from your Lord. Well hold on what OCMA and guidance and mercy. The stakes are high. For men of level men, men can never be at law whatsoever unhappy now that you've been given the scientific given the Quran, you've been shown everything.

00:23:31--> 00:23:38

Who can be more wrong and more oppressive than a person who turns away and denies the signs that are lost found data gives you

00:23:39--> 00:23:57

this is a moral failure. And this is what we said before that Pulford is not an intellectual failure. It's a moral failure. Okay, somebody is given science, whether it's miracles, whether it's the Koran, whether it's something that happens in their life, and everybody has a choice to make.

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

Either you're going to say, yes, that's a sign, I need to fix myself. I need to straighten up.

00:24:04--> 00:24:20

Or you're going to say whatever, that's just random. That happens to everybody. That doesn't mean anything else. That's not telling me to do anything else. This is refusing allow science is denying His signs rejecting his science. And that is literally the worst thing that you could do.

00:24:21--> 00:24:47

Why is that? The worst thing that you could do because it indicates Sue along Biller, in the case that you have a poor opinion about Allah, you think that the things that are happening to you are just random? Allah subhanaw taala says at the end of Surah, Tober, twice a year, twice a year, he's gonna give you a test. He's gonna give you a hardship at least twice a year. He says in the Quran, and we act like oh my god, where did this thing come from? Oh, no.

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

He's telling you to expect it.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

I had signs. They don't just mean what you think they mean. It's not just surface level stuff. Your car breaks down.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

right you get an accident, your health

00:25:03--> 00:25:14

or relationship falls apart. These things aren't just what they see there's a sign behind them. And last month I was trying to send a science and there's no one worse than somebody who denies a lot of science.

00:25:17--> 00:25:37

Allah says synergising Levina Yasi fauna Anna Yeah, Tina su other, we are going to reward or pay back. Those who turn away and reject our signs with the worst punishment. The map can we have the fool because of that, which they used to deny and turn away from

00:25:39--> 00:25:43

Hellion Verona Illa and to Mala Mala Erica, what are they waiting for?

00:25:44--> 00:25:58

The time is now are you waiting to see the angels? Are you waiting for the angels to come down to you? Oh yet to rob buco. Scott Excuse me. Oh, yeah, Tiara book. Are you waiting for Allah Himself to come?

00:25:59--> 00:26:39

Oh, yeah. To bow to area topic or that some of the signs we're talking about the signs of Day of Judgment that they're gonna come? What are you waiting for? The stakes could not be higher. You have to get right you have to fix yourself before it's too late. And that's why last fall data says you only up to you. But I'll do a topic. Learn federal nevsun, Ema NUHA. The day that those signs start coming, and we're talking about the sun rising from the West, and we're talking about the sky being ripped apart. And the volcanoes and the earthquakes and all of the sorts of things that Allah has found data told us are going to happen when that date comes in the science start coming. Lilian,

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

Pharaoh neffs and email her

00:26:42--> 00:27:22

faith will not benefit you on that day, limb tycoon. And that's been a couple if you have not believed before. If you haven't believed before, the no faith will benefit you that day. Oh Kesa, Betsy Imani. How Hira, if you hadn't made good on your faith. Why this is something the atheist state in the materialist stands for all the time. Where's the proof? Where's the proof? I'm not going to believe in God until I get absolute certain proof. Yeah, feet. The second that you get certain absolute proof, it's worthless. And it's over? Because the whole point is that belief demonstrates virtue? Who would? What type of virtue is it showing if you're only going to believe it

00:27:22--> 00:28:05

when it starts? That's easy. Anybody can do that. You'd be an idiot to not do it. But who's going to believe when it's not a short thing? Who is going to believe when there's that little tiny doubt in your heart that maybe it's not true? That maybe it's not exactly the way it says it is? The virtuous person believes anyway. And the person who wants to just live without limits however they want, they're going to take that 1% Doubt and they're going to live their lives. According to that 1% Doubt. That day, faith is useless. Faith is meaningless. Faith only means something when it's got something to lose. Faith only means something when there's that degree of uncertainty.

00:28:06--> 00:28:19

And so a lot of times auto ends that I says, Call in Telugu enamel until the room you guys wait, because we're waiting. And we'll see what's going to happen in the end in Alladhina Federico Dena home what can oh she

00:28:21--> 00:28:44

lets them in home fish ate. Our last one is the other than turns the phenomenon of religious difference. How can we have one religion that split off from another we have this schism and that schism and all this disagreement, we're talking about fundamental disagreements now disagreements and fifth or a secondary matters fundamental disagreements. Allah subhanaw taala. He says that the ones who

00:28:46--> 00:29:25

they separated their Deen off they created a new religion and they split it up into sects. less than minimum Fisher you've got nothing to do with them in nama amerihome Illa Allah, their issue and their matter will be settled by Allah Thumbelina, Beto Bhima, can we afford him and Allah Subhana Allah will inform them on the Day of Judgment, what they used to do, Min Jaya Allah Subhana Allah turns our attention to the optimist side to the good side, focus on what's going to benefit you focus on the truth follow Allah's way and you've got nothing to worry about manager or Bill hasna fella who asked you to answer earlier, whoever brings one good deed, Allah Subhana Allah will reward

00:29:25--> 00:29:37

it with 10 times the reward. Well, manager sia furler you deserve in Miss Lucha wa Hola, yo, Ramon. And whoever brings an evil deed Allah subhanaw taala is not going to punish it more than once.

00:29:39--> 00:29:51

Math. You do the math. That's the math of mercy. You do one good thing 10 times reward. You do one bad thing. You're going to be punished for it once and that's if he punishes you.

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

There's a Hadith of the Prophet sighs Saddam he said

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

with a person intense good. And they're prevented from doing that good.

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

And then they're still written down by the angels of having one good deed. It wasn't their fault. They tried, they went to go give the food to the neighbor, the neighbor didn't answer the door,

00:30:10--> 00:30:14

they go home and they eat the food, they still get the good deed, because it wasn't their fault.

00:30:15--> 00:30:49

They intend to do a good deed and they actually are able to do a good deed, the person opens the door, they give the food and that's multiple, multiple, multiple times, reward for that good deed. Somebody intends to do a bad deed, and they turn back, they turn back at the last second Allah subhanaw taala tells the angels write down one good deed it's only if somebody intends to do something bad. And then follows through and does it that allows for him to oughta record that as one bad deed and he still has the option to forgive it if he wants to.

00:30:54--> 00:31:15

There's no more there's not a better deal you're gonna get not in the dunya and not in the afterlife. That's not how we treat each other. Right? Somebody does 10 good things for us. And they do one bad thing for us. What are we going to remember that one bad thing and we're going to bring it up the best believe we're gonna bring it up. All the married guys are shaking their heads.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

Well, it goes right to spouses and make us right to spouse for them.

00:31:21--> 00:32:07

Oh, no one's gonna be oppressed on that day. No one's gonna be oppressed in the afterlife Well, whom lay over the moon, which is almost kind of an indication that in this life, you can expect to be oppressed a little bit more when it comes to that hamdulillah Allah is our reckoner and not anybody from the dunya call in nee had any Rabi Allah Subhana Allah gives us instructions say, certainly, Allah subhanaw taala My lord, my Sustainer has guided me, it is at all the most deftly aiming to a straight righteous path a dean and am in a righteous way a righteous Dean, a righteous worldview. Mill letter, Ibrahima Hanifa. The community of Abraham, the straight community of Abraham, one that

00:32:07--> 00:32:39

can meet in the mystery keen, and in another ayah, Allah says wallum Yakko middle mystery keen, and this is one of the strongest proofs for the explanation that in the next chapter sorted out off you have the story, famous story. Ibrahim alayhi, salam, he goes out. And he's, he looks at the stars, right? And he says, This is my Lord. And then they sat and he says, it looks at the moon. It says, This is my Lord. And then it sets and he looks at the Sun. He says, This is my Lord. So there's two opinions amongst the scholars of Tafseer. What was Abraham's intention?

00:32:40--> 00:33:10

Was he somebody who was searching for the truth? That he really started worshipping those things? Or did he already know and he was just proving to his people? It was a ruse. It was an argument that he was making this I hear a Lost Planet. Allah says, Well, Matt, kind of minimal stricken he never was somebody who worshipped anything except for a last final job, and the other is even more conclusive, while lemmya Camila Mushrikeen he never ever wants worshipped anything besides the last round of data. You think Abraham doesn't know that the sun doesn't set?

00:33:11--> 00:33:22

You think Abraham knows that the moon isn't going to go down? Of course he did. This was a style of argument that used against his people to try to show them the folly of worshiping anything in the creation other than Allah spawns Otto.

00:33:24--> 00:34:08

Then Allah subhanaw taala has more instructions for a school in solidarity. Oneness. Okay. Well, Matt, yeah, well, well imagine Ilaha illa Allah mean, say, my prayers, my rights, my rituals, my life, my living and my dying are for Allah subhanaw taala, the Sustainer of All the Worlds This is the creed of a Muslim. It's not about my body, my choice. It's not about autonomy, and what I get to choose your you belong to Allah. You're living belongs to Allah, you're dying belongs to Allah. Your worship belongs to Allah. It's not you. It's all for a loss of power to order, which is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, for somebody who fully submits, then this person, they

00:34:08--> 00:34:27

start to what's the highest level that that a Muslim can reach is when they perceive things the way that Allah Subhana Allah wants them to be perceived. You look at corruption and you hate it. You look at indecency and you hate it. Some people think hates a bad emotion. That's not true. Allah subhanaw taala wants us to hate things they love.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

You look at the things that Allah loves and you love it.

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

And the person who has a sick heart, it's the opposite.

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

They see something that is sinful,

00:34:39--> 00:34:54

but it's fun. And they like it. Maybe they have enough power or willpower to stop from doing it. But on the inside, they like what's sinful. The girls music, the haram. They like it.

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

It's very dangerous territory. We want our insides to be shaped so that our

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

our insides actually experienced things the way that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to.

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

And even worse is when you look at the good and you hate it.

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

You look at your brother Muslim, praying, doing Dawa.

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

Doing things in the community.

00:35:17--> 00:35:21

And you start to fall fine. So yeah, but he's not doing this.

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

Was there a more jealous thing that you could say,

00:35:25--> 00:35:30

criticize him for this, that and a third and we've got a lot of criticism going around these days.

00:35:33--> 00:35:39

What type of heart sees another Muslim trying to do good with all of their mistakes

00:35:40--> 00:35:44

and find something to nitpick and find something to criticize?

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

Maybe he's better than you. Maybe he worships Allah has found to audit in the last third of the night while you're asleep.

00:35:53--> 00:36:01

Allah knows and you don't know which is why I lost found out some sort of that Herat. He said, last car problem in common Assa. Hakuna Hi Ramona.

00:36:02--> 00:36:29

You don't ever look down on anybody the province I said I'm defined arrogance. He said, rumpled bustle. He said it's belittling other people. He said it's rejecting the truth and belittling other people looking down on other people don't ever look down anybody. The prophesy said I'm also citizen a hadith when he said that every Muslim upon a Muslim is haram demo who were mad at whoever though, his blood and his money and his and his honor his reputation.

00:36:31--> 00:36:36

And then he pointed to the fact that Muslims might look down on each other.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

And he said that it's sufficient. It's enough of sin, meaning you've already got your Philips of sin. If you look down on your brother Muslim,

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

this is the rotten heart.

00:36:50--> 00:37:31

The full heart the clean heart is the opposite. Everything's for Allah, my prayers, my rights, my rituals, my living and my die. It's all for Allah Subhan Allah to audit le Shetty kala there is no partner there is nothing that I'm doing. There's no ulterior motive. I'm not worshiping anything. I'm not worshipping Allah spawns out for favors. I'm not approaching Allah spawn to Allah through some sort of other means. I'll be that eco omitted to and I have been commanded that and last point Allah has never commanded except this one. Oh, well mostly mean and I am the first to submit. We are the only group of people in the world to have our the name of our religion determined by Allah is

00:37:31--> 00:37:32

found to otter.

00:37:33--> 00:37:43

Christians Allah did not give them the name Christians they made that up for themselves. Jews, Allah subhanaw taala did not make up the name Jews they gave that to themselves kingdom of Judah came way later.

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

Hindus this is something that the British invented

00:37:48--> 00:37:59

when it comes to Islam when it comes to Muslims, this is something a loss of our data set and your deen is a snap. The only Deen to allow us one or the other as a slam and you are our Muslims.

00:38:01--> 00:38:17

Allah wraps up the surah he says bull Elvira Allah He Eberly Robin, should I desire anyone? For a Rob for a sustainer other than Allah wa horrible cliche and he is the one who sustains everything.

00:38:18--> 00:38:27

Who am I going to run to? Who's going to save me? When Allah is found to Allah is the one who can save everybody. And nobody can save themselves from Allah.

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

Wala taxi, Bukola nevsun Illa Allah

00:38:33--> 00:38:36

no soul will bear anything except what it has earned.

00:38:38--> 00:38:49

And this is only just we don't have sort of this vicarious atonement, I'm going to have to bear your sins, you're gonna have to bear my sins. No, you've got your record, I've got mine. And as he recited in sort of in sortsa.

00:38:51--> 00:39:20

In in the the monthly prayer as Tetun that we will be raised to the last round data alone, just as we came into this world alone, no one's gonna save you on that day, not your shake, not your family, not your peer, not anybody it's going to be you and Allah upon the other and your deeds. Well that says it was its own wizard offer nobody's going to bear anyone elses these thumb either up become Moto G Eurocom. Fi unit vo calm. We might call them fi tech study from

00:39:21--> 00:39:48

then to your Lord is your return that loss bounds audit is the end of it all. You're going to go back to him and so he's going to inform you for what you used to defer. He used to say no, no, I can do this. No, no, I can do that. I can worship this other thing. I can get closer to Allah this way. All right. You go your way I'll go mine. And at the end of the day, I lost found out I was going to tell you and inform you and show you the reality of what you thought. Well, what are the Jhala calm? Kala if

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

this has a mirror I insert to the back of the world I spawned two out of the first thing he said the angels in Niger I don't feel utterly Califa he said and it's amazes me because the last one

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

On the other, he didn't say that he is talking to angels. He didn't tell the angels. I'm going to put people on Earth. I'm going to create human beings. You go to any biology textbook they say okay you homosapiens human beings that are no Allah subhanaw taala starts with something much more amazing than that he starts with a job description. He starts with an aspiration is every single person going to be a Halifa they're not going to live up to it. But that's what we're meant for. That's what we're created for. We're created to be a Khalifa we're created to be a successor of Allah subhanaw taala in this earth, managing things in the way that he's supposed to Allah wants us

00:40:36--> 00:40:43

to manage them. So here he says, Who are the Giada Quran, Allah Subhana Allah is the one who made you all color if

00:40:44--> 00:41:14

the successors on Earth. The managers, the people responsible, the people who have the ability to do things the way that Allah subhanaw taala wants them done. The birds aren't going to do it. The animals aren't going to do it. The rocks and the mountains aren't going to do it. It's up to people. People took the responsibility and it's up for them. It's up to them to make good on it. Then Allah subhanaw taala says raw water are about the comfort of about Allah Spano. Tala elevated some of you above others.

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

Inequality,

00:41:18--> 00:41:35

Allah is bound to Allah said that inequality is a fixed part of the dunya you're never going to get rid of it. But listen to why he allowed it to exist. Refer about the common folk about the Rajasthan Lea Balu accom. Female telco

00:41:36--> 00:41:36

Allah.

00:41:37--> 00:41:55

Why did he do it? Why did he make rich and poor? Why did he make powerful and weak? Was it to punish the poor? Was it to have them in a lonely life? No. to test them Leah Baloo accom FEMA attack come with what every single person has been given. That's your test.

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

You were given poverty that's your test.

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

Don't go around begging people.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

You've been given wealth. That's your test.

00:42:07--> 00:42:11

Give to the masjid feed the poor help the people put your money make it work for Allah spawn to audit.

00:42:12--> 00:42:23

You've been given humility. Nobody respects you, due to whatever reason your skin color your station or life, your occupation. That's your test. Allah Subhana Allah knows best.

00:42:25--> 00:42:44

You've been given status. People look up to you. You're a doctor, you're a lawyer. You're a big shot. You're an athlete. That's your test. We see people like Habib. I see people like Conor McGregor. We see people use their status and power and influence for good and we see people use it for evil.

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

Power is not a good a good thing or a bad thing by itself in a snap. There's good power the prophesy Saddam had power, Abu Bakr

00:42:55--> 00:43:01

and if man and sad are gonna be what costs for rich or wealthy companions.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

They were companions with white skin they were companions with black skin.

00:43:07--> 00:43:12

And the only thing that separated them in the eyes of Allah is found the otter a Taqwa

00:43:14--> 00:43:20

was their righteousness and only a loss found to Allah knows their righteousness was white and what the last one data set it and so that

00:43:21--> 00:43:23

he ends the idea with

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

Alim on hobby.

00:43:26--> 00:43:38

He ends the Iota Lehmann club here. He says in the economic Amendola, he at Costco, the best the most noble of you and Allah site are the most pious in Allaha, Alima Kabir

00:43:39--> 00:43:41

and Allah knows best who that is and you don't.

00:43:42--> 00:43:59

Alim is knowledge that anybody can know anybody can tell by the hover, hovers, huffy. Something that has information that you have to be told someone has to tell you, you didn't see it yourself. And so Allah is found that Allah is informed about who the real pious person is.

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

And you aren't.

00:44:03--> 00:44:35

So Allah subhanaw taala created inequality, it's in the dunya. It's in the creation, it's here to stay. Why? Because he has to separate between people. This whole dunya is just about demonstrating what's inside of your heart, demonstrating your virtue or your lack thereof, how are you going to deal with it? And there's people Subhanallah they pray for something. And it's the worst thing for them. There's people who are poor that pray to be rich and Allah spawns Allah keeps them poor. Because if they were rich, they would be the biggest sinner.

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

And there's some people that are rich,

00:44:39--> 00:45:00

that are uncomfortable by it. But Allah has found out no matter how much they give, keeps them rich. Because if they were poor, they would despair and they would sin and they would fall into a fall into bad times. Allah Spano data has a plan for everybody. And it's not that simple, rich, poor, powerful, lowly. It's all about what's inside and Allah

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

was found the other is testing you everything is a test to see what you're going to do with what he gave you in not all because sorry earlier up Allah Subhana Allah is quick to punish quick to take account. We're in the hula for Rahim autonomy with our heap we see both Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah the Quran is amazing because the last prime data never goes too hard on one side of his qualities or characteristics, he says in the beginning of the area, certainly, he is swift to take account he is swift to punish his punishment comes fast. Bogota was founded described earlier in the Surah snatches you all at once, when you're least suspecting it's pretty scary. But then the last

00:45:43--> 00:45:55

round to Allah says in the endless runners who are in who love our food or Rahim and he is also forgiving and merciful. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us and have mercy upon us. Below to Allah Allah
