hamdulillah Alhamdulillah here have been our alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool e na v Karim. All praise and thanks are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who gave us life who gave us ability, or prison things are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who not only facilitated luxury for us today, but let's face it, we're on the west coast. So we think a lot 10 days ago, we were still talking about a superstorm. And as of today, 40,000 people don't have electricity. And on top of the rain, everyone knows what's going on. On the east coast, there's a at least a half a foot of snow, four or five inches snow. So it is difficulty upon difficulty. And upon this, we say for our

00:00:45 --> 00:00:48

situation Alhamdulillah

00:00:49 --> 00:01:33

not only do we say Alhamdulillah. But we then realize why Allah gives us good states, right? It's not a luck of the draw that we're doing well, they're not doing well. And then when we have an earthquake, they're doing well and we're not. So there is a purpose in the chaos of life. And I think that is something that we're intending to focus on today. So before that lesson comes out before today, which we're going to be discussing the people of who the artists are not a very complicated people. It's very similar to what we live in today's specifically in Southern California. So the people of Ruud Ali Salaam were very similar to the people who lived in Beverly

00:01:33 --> 00:02:10

Hills, and I'm going to draw a direct comparison and I expect inshallah, that you find wisdom in it. And if it doesn't work, you can say, well, this didn't work but I see how what analogy you're making. So before we get into that, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for our situation and we praise Allah subhanaw taala for the ability to study his book for if we were on the East Coast today, and Wednesday was at Westbury Masjid or the Manhattan mustard we wouldn't gather because Allah subhana wa Taala did not would not have facilitated it for us. So upon that I wish that you all say and hamdulillah

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

let's try that one more time. Sorry, guys.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:27

If we can praise Allah subhanaw taala collectively at the beginning of our study, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will put the blessing into what we're studying right now. So if you say Alhamdulillah

00:02:28 --> 00:02:47

Alhamdulillah Allah alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool e Nabeel Karim and as we've tried to make a practice Let's read it three times before we start the durood and the blessings on the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you can follow with me it is Allahumma sloughed Li was Salim

00:02:48 --> 00:02:52

Allah Nabina Muhammad

00:02:54 --> 00:02:59

three words together a law Huma Flodden Lee was Sadie Lim.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

Allah Nabina Muhammad

00:03:07 --> 00:03:15

See if you can get the whole thing together a law home mouthwateringly was suddenly mala Nabina Muhammad

00:03:20 --> 00:04:05

jazak Allahu Allahu Allah in the US, Luca hubback uberman you have book we'll hook it up boonie either herbig Allahumma inni Luca inmod nasya Allah we ask for beneficial knowledge, where am lm Mota Kabbalah and actions that are acceptable and accepted? What is fun play Eva and May Allah give us this sustenance, air, clothing, money, finance, happiness, happiness is a part of risk. The amount of happiness that you experience is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala so constantly praise Allah, and May He give us good source. That was unbelieva I say unto you, as I pray every day is full for you As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:29

I pray Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you a productive and healthy week. Last week, the crowd was a little bit smaller and a little bit more quiet. So I'm praying that we can make up for some of the quietness. So let's start exactly where we left off. Can anyone give me the last story that we covered? What was the last story that we covered the profit?

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

profit man, no. New holiday Salah went through a series of events we said his story occurred and how many soar in the Quran how many sources 2020 different places in the Quran. Allah talks about new and as a chief or as we would say, the second the second coming of mankind after other money, salam, new hooray Salam was the biggest pillar because he wasn't just a prophet. What was he he was the sheath and Idris is

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

salat wa salam, they came for their nation. No one came for.

00:05:05 --> 00:05:48

Everybody exactly knew Elisa, not only did he come for everyone but as we said, Every culture Jewish Christian, Japanese, Oriental has the story of a man who picked up a mess load of people in a boat and save them. So this story lived on forever, not only as a religious aspect, but also as an aspect for legacy for folk tale. Even those who don't believe in a God said yes, there was one some type of big flood because of the flood, bang, all of mankind was wiped out. Then on that note, we talked about the fact that new Holly salons time shrunk the gene pool almost down to nothing. There were very few human beings left. Barely we said in the narrations, maybe less than 100. Right as he's

00:05:48 --> 00:05:59

getting onto the boat. Tell me something about the boat sisters. Can you tell me where he built the boat? Where did he Where was he building this boat? on top of a mountain? And what's wrong? What's odd about making a boat on a mountain?

00:06:01 --> 00:06:42

It's far from the sea. How are you going to get a boat from here into the ocean? So they mocked him? They plagiarized him. They told him what you were a prophet for 900 years or 1000 minus 50. Now what if you started carving boats? Right doesn't make any sense. So after this, he said, Allah subhana wa, tada will make you come to see something happened where he raised his hands to Allah subhanaw taala and said, Allah, I'm not fed up with my people. But I'm afraid that if we allow the people to continue, what would go on in their children? What would go on in their children? Can anyone remind me what was new in their nation ship, and their kids were picking up on the ship. So we realized

00:06:42 --> 00:07:24

whether or not we understood the wisdom of our ruling, we still had to give into it. Because at the end of the day, you could have us sitting in this room, we could have lost that Noah to we're going to set new holidays, or the old man forgot to take his medication, building a board up there. Yeah, one day, and then we would joke, right? We could, because rationally for what's tangible to us as human beings, some old guy building a boat on a mountain, until we take out the concept that there is a creator. But when you put a love back into the factor, then it is about submission. It's not about whether it makes sense. And that is today's model. Today's model is realizing that Allah

00:07:24 --> 00:08:06

subhanaw taala does everything with a purpose. But we have to find that purpose. Until we understand the wisdom of Allah, we shouldn't hold our hands as slaves of Allah and I wanted to get directly into this as slaves of Allah we give in before we understand, as an employee of Ioh K. will ask Jake, No, man, I don't understand why you put the lights up. I want to understand what's going to happen here. And as an employee, I have the right to ask, but are we employees of Allah? That's the question I would like you to, you can say no quickly. But if we aren't the employees of Allah, and we are truly the servants of Allah, what is different? And that is exactly where we start because an

00:08:06 --> 00:08:51

employee can complain to the employer and say, Hey, shake no man Hey, Muhammad, I want my son to get a job here. But what happened to new how they set up as he was standing on the boat and his I think I know everything son was standing up on the mountain and what happened? His son said, Dad, don't worry, I'll be fine. And between them came what a huge wave. And that is exactly where we're going to pick up we're picking up in Surah Hood what I've asked you to read for the last two weeks Surah Hood which is Surah number 11. I am number 24 to 48. Today B is anila we are going to pick up from Surah number I am number 47 of Surah Hood and just take the running translation with me this is

00:08:51 --> 00:09:32

going to bleed directly into the story of who the artists that um but as you realized new artists Salaam is looking at his son, he's telling his son come down follow what I'm saying and this is an example for us. When our father an elder a youngster says something about the deen some something about Islam that makes sense. Don't look at who's saying look at what is being said earlier on the Allahu taala and mentioned something he said do not look at the messenger don't look at the person talking to you. He might have a beard he might not have a beard he might have prayed fudger he might have not but look at the message that he's bringing to so new holiday Salaam son is looking dead in

00:09:32 --> 00:10:00

the eye and go Dad You don't know I'm just going to go stand on a mountain. And meanwhile new holiday Salaam stinking I built a boat on a mountain the water is going to get there son Don't worry. But as the wave crosses between them Allah subhanho wa Taala sales new holiday Salam with the canopy or the submarine like boat that was going through the waves. He sailed them for an extended period of time key factor new holiday Salam ship now dogs as dogs he comes out and what is he worried about? What is

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

He asked Allah subhanho wa Taala he says automatically and that's an ayah number. Excuse me, I am number 46. We're picking up on 47 He says, Yeah, I'll be where is my family? Where's my you said everything was going to be fine. And the respectful fashion in which he speaks to Allah, He doesn't say look, I pulled it off. Now where's my kid? He says a lot. You said my family would be safe and you never break the promises. And Allah subhanho wa Taala rectifies the situation and he proves to us that Islam, the statement La ilaha illa Allah is thicker than the blood that runs between the Father and the Son and between the blood brothers, Allah Subhana Allah said Dean bound us in them

00:10:41 --> 00:11:29

and me Luna if we're right down this ayah if one means brother in if one means blood brother, Allah subhanaw taala didn't say enamel Muna one. That means brotherhood Brotherhood in ml mamina is one means that my brother my blood brother more than someone who would attribute a partners to Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala rectifies that and now after you build the ship gave Tao for 950 years after your son was humiliated, and all of humanity has been destroyed. Allah is reprimanding or putting you in your place. we human beings would we would start counting gifts to Allah. Hey Allah, I built the ship, hey Allah, I gathered the animals. What does new holiday Salam do after Allah rectifies

00:11:29 --> 00:12:23

what he said I want my son Allah said it's not even your son. So he turns to Allah subhana wa tada and listen to the words of of submissiveness against submission versus questioning the purpose for our odo Billahi min ash, a Paul, G. He says all around me the room Do we have a lot I asked refuge from you. And as Eric Lee sorry, be he? I asked forgiveness from you respect I asked you to overlook the fact that I have asked you about that which I have no knowledge. When you make dua and Allah doesn't fulfill it or answer it. We are quick to say oh, you religious person make dua for me. No. New Halley Salam said Allah I'm sorry, I asked about something that I don't know what he learned

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

down fearly.

00:12:27 --> 00:13:10

Me, except and only if I've said these things that I don't know about accepting only if, if you forgive me, and you have mercy on me to separate things. Forgiveness means I'm sorry, when your child comes to you and says, Mom, I'm sorry, I made a mistake. You can forgive? What are how many is when you say that's okay. That's okay. My son, that's okay. Love and you give them a hug? What are fearly? What are how many akun middelfart. Syrian, Allah if you don't forgive me and love me, I'll be amongst the losers. So now he realizes and this is the key factor. Anyone could argue Blood is thicker than religion, religion can come second to anything. But as we have been saying, as a focal

00:13:10 --> 00:13:40

point for out to throughout today's lecture, the fact that a lot puts us in scenarios so that we can straighten up. And the second fact is that Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is the one who created the relationships around us. A communal hostility in and if we don't rectify those, then we will be in a state of loss. He does not have his son, he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and makes this draw upon this Allah subhanaw taala says, Lila no who will?

00:13:46 --> 00:14:05

Watch what Allah says go down with peace, your ship will dock in the right place. Don't worry and that peace that tranquility is not just someone passively giving him feeling it is Allah consoling a father who just lost his son. He said go down. Do not worry about it bu salam, O Allah oma

00:14:09 --> 00:14:19

and you will go down with the nation that was with you. So all of these creatures and the animals have gone by what Alma Sonoma to whom, Mr.

00:14:22 --> 00:15:00

Boone, Annie, and he reminds him but the people behind you who mock you for 900 years for them will be a very severe and difficult point. I have 48 completes the story of new holidays. And in between, I am number 49 is going to talk about surah Prophethood. But I am number i a number this is 49 talks directly to Muhammad Rasulullah. This is in between the two stories of Surah Hood directly talks to Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and as we discussed, the Prophet Muhammad was a human being he experienced emotion. He

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

experience happiness, disregard he just he was elated sometimes and sometimes even if it was a blind man, he was just overwhelmed with what he was doing here Allah subhanho wa Taala consoled him and says, deal can mean.

00:15:19 --> 00:16:04

Hee ha, Eli. This is from the news. This story of Noah that's been going on for 20 is the description of the horror and anxiety in his eyes as he saw his son, this is umber 11 news that you would have never known it is unseen, which We have revealed unto Mohammed rasulillah what is Allah doing to Muhammad? Rasulullah sallallahu is on right now, in this surah we know what's going on Mohammed, Ursula is in early mushkin times, what is he dealing with? What scenarios and situations he's overwhelmed with anxiety? He's been giving power to his people in Makkah, and the people have been looking at him in Macau. What did he tell Muhammad Rasulullah he said if if the sky opened a

00:16:04 --> 00:16:18

ladder dropped out of the sky and angel came walking down and said hey Mohammed, how are you doing? prophets are so lost ally some gave you a scroll and said okay, I'm going back to having walked back up on this ladder. We still wouldn't believe you're abroad.

00:16:19 --> 00:16:58

Is it is it disheartening? Does it hurt? Yes, it's overwhelming. It makes you It makes you overwhelmed and unaware of what to do next. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the prophets a lot how to sell them in a beautiful in a beautiful analogy which we can take now. Allah subhana wa tada said, victory is yours you're going to get victory. Jenna is yours people, the dominance of Allah's law is yours. All you have to do is wait till the train gets there, the train is going to reach LA x to hang on, takes a little bit of time, takes a little bit of time for us to make that commitment. And in that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We told you Mohammed Rasulullah stories that no one else would

00:16:58 --> 00:17:05

have known. And we told you stories that would help and lift up the person mallacoota Alamo

00:17:07 --> 00:17:08


00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

kong mukha new colony

00:17:13 --> 00:17:54

and no one had a clear message of what this story was. This story worries of the Koran or not a time pass but in them is a wisdom and a constellation. So I close this story and open the next next time you're overwhelmed. It could be family problems could be marital situation. Could be your kids not listening open. No joke, listen and read the stories. Imagine being the son you guys young people I wish my parents understood. Imagine being Ibrahim Ali Salaam in the household where your dad is carving an idol and still having the patience to look your dad in the eye and say, Dad, I'm not sure mean Allah. But Allah gave me some knowledge. And I think it would be better if we didn't carve

00:17:54 --> 00:18:12

idols. He didn't boastfully speak right Soraka second page, Ibrahim Ali Psalms, dad is carving idols. He is a prophet. What does he look at his dad and say, Mina Laila have all the knowledge in the world. I only know a little bit and from what I know, I don't think we should be doing this. Do we have the capability to find that

00:18:14 --> 00:18:36

that intervention that Allah subhanaw taala can be our counselor, that a Lost Planet, Allah can be our therapist, and he sent a means of therapy for us. You won't be able to find that until you see these through the stories of the Quran. And Allah subhanaw taala said that you did not know this. So because you did not know the stories of the past. Fellas bill in Allah

00:18:37 --> 00:18:43

daleel Motoki in crossville. Tell me what Fosbury means brothers.

00:18:44 --> 00:19:27

Be patient. And what did we say about patience? There are three forms of sub. We said having sub when I am when I'm wealthy, and I'm giving charity, it's not necessarily slub. It's relative to what I'm spending. When I am, I'm the teacher, and I could yell at the student, but I don't that's not sobor I'm placing authority, of course, I could yell at him. But when I am the subordinate, and I know I'm right, but I don't yell back. This is something. So when someone says something to you, they make a comment. They say something. Someone made a comment about the president. They're like, Oh, are you happy? The Muslim President got elected. And it's a very great, it's kind of like what

00:19:27 --> 00:20:00

really broke the best you could do. And when you get a comment like that, when you don't retaliate, this is not necessarily sub. This is you being intelligent, but when you are in a place of authority, and someone doesn't know what they're talking about, and you can smash them in their space, possibly Hold your tongue, say Yeah, I think so. Ibrahim Ali Salam can do it. If new holiday syrup can look at his son and do it. We can do the same and have patience when we know we're right. That's the key factor. And I'm looking down at the brothers because that's usually the situation when you're having an argument and you know, you can you can

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

Find the fault in your wife's logic. Just leave it alone. Just leave it alone make dua because I'm telling you, they put out false logic sometimes just to see if your bite and then they'll smack you. So be aware, be aware that Allah subhanaw taala is our is the one who is our therapist. And if even if you have difficulties we turn to Allah. In this closing of the story, new Holly Salam situation is done. Take two pieces of information. Number one, one narration tells us he lived for 150 years after the boat docked. So after these people were dammed and destroyed, he lived for 150 years. Another narration told us 250 years now, here's the key point. You are living in the greatest

00:20:43 --> 00:21:32

travesty or the effect of humanity was wiped out new holiday Sam comes they dock the animals go off, they do their own thing. Discovery Channel animal planet is now boring people are walking around doing their own business after a period of time. What happens? Allah subhanaw taala picks up and tells us the story again, what Isla de na for whom who was a lad and to the people have an ad on a map I want you to realize our ad is between Oman and Yemen. Between Oman and Yemen you've probably heard the area of the world called Hassan mote, right, but you can look at that. Think of the Southern boot of Saudi Arabian peninsula. That Southern boot is where new Holly salon ship docked.

00:21:32 --> 00:22:14

Now, excuse me is where the people of odd had had that house had settled. So new had a salon story completed and generations have passed the next profit to come. His name is who'd he came to a people called odd. There's something important for you to note here, you will never see a narration of the Prophet hood, or narrations of the people of God in the Bible and in the Torah. Can anyone tell me why not because they're wrong. Why would it? Why wouldn't it be in the Bible in the Torah, anyone can figure out the people of God were from the boot of Saudi Arabia Southern boot. So what does that mean? They were what kind of people were there. They were remote. They what was their nationality?

00:22:15 --> 00:22:51

They were out of prophethood had reached the Arab peninsula and these were known as the earliest Arabs known to man. So when you don't see it is also a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gave us the Delta, we changed it, we moved things around. He gave us Bible we perverted it and has 30,000 virgins now. So then Allah subhanaw taala said, I'm going to give you one more book, I'm going to make sure it stays preserved. And in that book, I'll tell you things that no other nation knew. Because the last time I thought I was going to send the final messenger amongst the audience. So in this Allah subhanaw taala had a young man his name was who the Adi Salaam he grew up from amongst

00:22:51 --> 00:23:32

these people. What Illa Allah for whom was ILA I didn't call him Buddha, and to the people of odd we sent their brother who the artist salat wa salam. Now you ask yourself, what was going on with the people of who that was different? Who that is salons people as we find in the Quran, and we're gonna have to jump a little bit in Surah Minjun in Surah. Allah and other in Surah anime as well, we find that the people of odd were very tall, taller than the people of New Hudson. Not only were they tall, but they were extraordinarily affluent. So we're going to discuss this we're going to think about this in a grand scale. Think about the really fit people in Southern California, very

00:23:32 --> 00:24:19

affluent, very physically fit very appealing, and they're very well settled. They feel as if they're going to be here forever. So by this time shavon had waited a few a number of generations and what Noah knew had a Salaam his people fell into shape and increase the stakes. So you tell me what did the people of New newly introduced shit they introduced associating partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala what happened next? The people of add the people excuse me of who the artists around time which are the people of odd their prophet who was dealing with a new situation and I need you to tell me what this is. If we eradicate ship, what does ship eventually lead to? Can you help me out

00:24:19 --> 00:24:22

on this? What this should eventually lead to?

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

It can make arrogance Okay, here's one opinion Anyone else? If I believe that there is another god, another creator, forget about God, someone else who's gonna give me the money to live? How does that affect? What does that do? ego it hits your ego. And if we can take ego one step further, they stopped believing in the Acela I fast forwarded to the answer. They not only became arrogant, the ego got out of line but they started saying, You know what? sure if a generation before could worship idols, then why do we need to bother believing in a God at all? We are fine

00:25:00 --> 00:25:41

were wealthy were able were very financially stable. And as we will see here, Allah subhanaw taala reminded us give you a quick perspective. Anyone know what the practice of the people of who that is? salams the people of God had a very specific practice real estate wise, anyone know what they used to do? So they stopped believing in the hereafter. So if I don't believe that I'm going to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala, what do I start doing here in this world? I start living like I'm going to live forever. Friends, when a rapper puts $150,000 of gold in his mouth. Right? Right. And he starts drilling diamonds into his face. Or he people they get I diamond I tattoos, they they save the top

00:25:41 --> 00:26:17

of the, if they put a little diamond there, what does this mean? What do you think you're going to do you think you're gonna live forever, right? When you put $100,000 in your mouth when you start. When you start upholstering your car in ostrich skin, you start to believe this dunya is forever. So the people of who they are is Salam had a very specific practice, which you will find in the Quran in surah hood and in Surah. Off, this is the only nation that has to Surah as named after them, they would go into their mountainous areas, and they would build enormous houses, beautiful palaces, and then one

00:26:18 --> 00:26:58

nobody would live in them. No one would live in them. And they all they would do because they lived in a sand dune off, they would build their roads. And as you would drive through the city, this guy over here would say that's my monument, no one lives there. It's not used at all, but that's my monument. That's my vacation home. We never actually vacation there, but I'm good enough. So they became to the point where this world became permanent. We're having a house in Newport Beach and making sure you live here and have four and a half cars and this and this. This is the pursuit of of this life. And that's all I have. So for the first time the people have who would took or the people

00:26:58 --> 00:27:40

of odd took the concept of ship and raised it to a level higher. Say you made such that to an idol by mistake for whatever reason. You were lost in a hospital you didn't know what to do. You grabbed across said Oh Allah help me. From there. You can come back and say Allah, this was a state. This is a state of difficulty. But just like new said, If shear builds up eventually, it won't be that people believe in Gods other than Allah. It will be people don't believe in meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala will either add in a form houda Paula Jaco Marabou de la Hamada Camila enviro and he said to his people, by Lancome Marabou La La La

00:27:41 --> 00:28:25

La La Jolla. He said don't worship don't become the slave of anyone else. Not money cash not how you look not how how people perceive you Jaco Mira Buddha law Oh my people obey become servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Malika, mean Illa enviro. And he said, what's wrong with you that you're taking Gods other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he says, the famous words in anthem illa mooster rule that don't be amongst those who are inventors, those who are making up things in the religion. Finally, he says to his people, what every prophet has said, every prophet in from the beginning of the Quran till the end says one statement, and this shows you the sincerity of prophethood they're

00:28:25 --> 00:28:35

not out to attain something they're not out to achieve. He said to his people, yo, Camila ello, Kumar Lee,

00:28:36 --> 00:29:21

all my people, I'm not asking you to make me be a mirror. I don't want to be your leader and be wealthy. I just want you to know not to go to *. I just want you to know to become servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he said, Elijah, I don't want any payment. So I'm not asking you to say my talk was good, or my talk was bad, and asked me to hear out what I'm seeing. And he said, in Nigeria, Illa Allah Allah de Falco, Ronnie, as far as Good job, good talk, I was gonna give it to me. And for Atlanta, de Lune, don't you think about this, if I'm telling you, I'm the used car salesman, and I tell you, I don't want you to buy the car, I really don't want you to, I just want

00:29:21 --> 00:29:54

you to know that a Toyota Prius can do this many miles to the gallon. I just want you to have information. At the end of the day, you're going to trust that person a little bit more. But every prophet then went through the same problem. They said this, and you have to be able This is general knowledge. After they said, last Illuminati agenda. We don't want any payment from you. What did their people always do to them? You can give me any answer that pops up to you and I'll explain how it works. What did every nation do after they said this? happened with every prophet so far? After a prophet comes? What they usually say?

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

Is gotta Yeah, you've gotta you gotta screw those guys. Old

00:30:00 --> 00:30:37

So after this, they came to who that is saddam and they said, he has a gin. He has angered the Elder Gods like in Mortal Kombat or something. And he, that's why he's been cursed and Damn, boom, it's done. So he's looking at them. Like, I don't understand exactly what you're saying here. I'm asking you that I don't want any. I don't want any recumbents I don't want anything in return. So then they did character assassination. And they did exactly what every people in every nation did before them. They made fun of the profits and said, Oh, that guy's religious. That guy he's crazy. They said he was possessed crazy that he didn't get along with his family, they came up with anything to reject

00:30:37 --> 00:31:02

the message. So here is what Allah says to them, that these messengers are sent with the intent and purpose for us to follow them. Now, I want to summarize this first section so we know that what new Halley's Salam said to his people, for call to selfie robot come in who can have a fara that if you ask forgiveness from Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive you. We'll close our first section with the same discussing

00:31:04 --> 00:31:12

who the artist Salaam turns to his people after they called him crazy and possessed and said, why our poem he stole fuel from bokun

00:31:13 --> 00:31:17

to boo era, he will see in his

00:31:20 --> 00:31:42

middle Ah, he said to them, if you ask Oh my people were human beings we're going to make mistakes. We're going to fall into traps but if you fall into the trap and make this the fall as the last behind what Allah for help for mercy for protection, and say, ask a lot of stuff for the law please if you don't mind a stole federal law

00:31:43 --> 00:32:29

make it stiffer what to do and ask Allah subhanaw taala is repentance UTC this Mr. la comida de la la will make from the sky. It will pour down and you will get this from every angle. You'll get a risk storm. It will pour down from the sky and we said every economy is functioning on its water rainfall. What does he do can wanton Isla de como la Tata one lo Mooji de me in everything so far that houde has said new has said already except these words here. New Holly Salaam said ask for forgiveness Allah will give you more wealth, more children more sustenance and more money but Allah subhanaw taala says to the people of who would they were considered concerned about status, what are

00:32:29 --> 00:33:09

people going to think about us? How are we going to be seen in the community right? How do I how do my clothes hang? So Allah subhanaw taala said who what then Isla, Guwahati comb that Allah will give you strength upon strength, and you will be able to reject them. What do you mean? The main point that I would like to take out of these 10 is, sometimes we see messengers they come and every one of hamdulillah everyone, whether we like it or not to live in the southern Californian belt, you have to be able you have to be, you could live in Kentucky for a quarter of the price. Let's put it that way. Right. So we're all making enough enough to say that we live here, in that focus when we live

00:33:09 --> 00:33:48

comfortably enough. And we turn to Allah subhanaw taala and hear stories of the prophets, we need to realize the messengers brought us this message and they don't gain anything. So in taking one thing I'm asking you to make step out of the box. It's easy to talk about stories of the profits, but it's very difficult to talk about a job. It's very difficult to talk about coming to the mustard. And it's even more difficult to talk about loans. Now it gets I know it. And I remember I grew up here, I grew up here I lived here, my parents, I know what a mortgage is. I know what it means. I know how difficult it is to live in a certain area and have your kids go to a tougher school. But these are

00:33:48 --> 00:34:28

topics that are real, when these buttons are pushed. Our question is one thing. Oh Allah, do we submit to your rule whether I'm still stuck in the heart on whether I put the hijab on my head, whether I try to get out of the loan, whether I pray five times a day, whether I stopped the bad habit that I have every Saturday night or not? Do I submit to Allah Allah? Or do I say, well, brother, it doesn't make any sense to me. If you explain it, then I'll follow that makes us an employee of a law. It doesn't make us the servant of the law. And that's the main fact that I'd like to get you from the story of who that is. And on the point and the factor that was given that we

00:34:28 --> 00:34:59

turn to Allah subhanaw taala he gives us life, energy, parents happiness, he gives us the puberty so we can grow older, then we can reproduce, he gives us everything. But then when we become adults, all of a sudden the laws of Allah are up for debate, because they don't make sense to me and some shifts, that's something else. So in this, ask yourself now, this is not a lecture, this is a class. So ask yourself in the seventh lecture, you know what I like to do? I'd make the commitment. When I hear has a halogen. I say a lot of bayko assadi will have that. How long

00:35:00 --> 00:35:38

And this is forbidden a lot, I want to stay away from this. If we start with that, then a Chateau en la da de la wa shawanna, Mohammed Abdullah pseudo means so much more. It carries so much more weight, because the people of who they said they believed in the hereafter. They said that there might be a day of judgment. And upon this, they turned back and they said, Well, we don't really know if you're going to raise a bucket again. So we leave these few stories. And we asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us the main point of what the messengers brought. And that message was that every prophet came with the do's and don'ts and whether we submit ourselves to the law of Allah

00:35:38 --> 00:36:02

subhanaw taala is up to us. And that is what Islam is. So before we move on to the people of who then all of their difficulties, and the times in the arguments that they had with their Prophet, we realized one key factor, let us begin to submit to the law of Allah subhanaw taala along with me as a local gentleman, Juana hora de la Hammond only mama to becoming a nada por la la hamin od woman.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:09

that's point number one. Point number two, and it takes a lot for, for some of us to,

00:36:10 --> 00:36:52

to realize when the people of who the word given or the amount automatically took from the story of who the lesson is a haram to live in? Is it? Is it a magic question? Is it haram to live in a big house? No. Is it haram to have nice things? No. It is when those nice things and the pursuit of those things cuts into the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So think about it this way. Why does the last panel Allah given I thought that this point was amazing, Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is from the story of wood he gave to the people. In essence, human beings have the ability to the want to, to feel love, to be to be fed, clothed, to have shelter, these are human needs. Now put on the

00:36:52 --> 00:37:32

other side of the spectrum. Why did Allah subhanaw taala create us in the first place to worship Him. So now balance these two things out there are two paths. Allah subhanaw taala has given human beings a eucom X and Y am Allah to see which one of us is a best interactions. path number one, we live in the time of hood artists around and we are given abundant wealth. We are 4050 feet tall, we're strapping good looking, we have wealth, we are so lavish that we will build a house at Laguna Beach and say, that's my house. It's so fresh, nobody lives in it. No one has ever opened the door. You know, like sometimes people they wear a new pair of sneakers every day, right? rappers do this

00:37:32 --> 00:38:14

every day and so fresh. They were I wonder what happens to the other ones. But this is a way to show how fresh they are, how affluent they are. With this last panel with Allah when he gives you risk, he gives you peace of mind, what we humans do with peace of mind with the peace of mind that in our pocket, we buy more things, we entertain ourselves so that we can relax more. But why did Allah feed us in the first place? Why did he give us shelter in the first place clothing in the first place to worship? So path number one when Allah gives you two cents to rub together say Alon happy and become more charitable, have nice things live and have a mansion but pray in that mansion have a beautiful

00:38:14 --> 00:38:50

car but drive to fudger in the morning turn your heated seats on right and use cruise control and do whatever else they can do right and drive a twin turbo it floats my boat is fine. But at the end of the day use the resources to worship Allah subhanaw taala what is path number two? So then some Allah has not given and they're poor or they don't have or they don't feel for Let's leave finance to the side. Maybe they're not beautiful, right? You go through your teenage years and you wake you go to sleep looking Okay, and then you wake up and you've got everything going on over here right? You wake up one day and you're got a bad hair day so much is happening yesterday. Allah gave you

00:38:50 --> 00:39:02

beauty What did you do with it today? A lot took it away path number two. What if Allah doesn't give you when a human being is sick, he has less money, you could be a millionaire. I remember on 911 a very wealthy man.

00:39:04 --> 00:39:42

My dad was in the subway for 911 during 911 in New York, and there were people in $3,000 suits but their credit cards working working cell towers were down so they had no cash to get guys in $3,000 suits doing What sir? Could I borrow $3 so I could take the train Sir, can I do this? Can I do that? meaning no matter where you are, when you're in need, you become humble. So why not look at the second path that Allah subhanaw taala has put you in difficult times. Because who knows if Allah gave you money, you might not have gone the right way. The people who were given and they turned away from Allah subhana wa Tada. So I'm asking you to make a quick reflection here. When the going

00:39:42 --> 00:39:59

is good, give more in the path of Allah spend more time in the masjid worship Allah subhanaw taala more if every month your spouse fights with you and this month she didn't sit down and make turaga because allows freeing up time so you can worship Him. If if you're having if you're feeling healthy, spent

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

With your children and then pray for two more to Raka if you feel healthy today's pick up the phone and speak to the person you haven't spoken to in some time. Why? Because the last minute Allah can only give one of two scenarios, either the going is very comfortable for us or the going will be very difficult. So in this We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to help us realize a eucom us and Ramallah, everything that happens to you every week, whether you're a good looking person, whether you feel like you're a good speaker, whether you feel like your children understand you better than your spouse, take that to advantage and please Allah subhanaw taala. And that's the key phrase that

00:40:35 --> 00:40:42

people have who used to build these lofty towers, and then they would live on the ground in the off doesn't even know what a half means.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:52

Sand dunes, right? I encourage you to do this. And I'm encouraging you to do this with your children as well. Instead of taking trips to great adventure or Disneyland.

00:40:53 --> 00:41:31

Try to drive to the places that are similar to the stories of the hole on the in Arizona between here, between here in Texas, there are seven main locations. There's the Petrified Forest where an entire forest of trees were frozen in sand for 150, about 100 years 100 million years, excuse me. So these trees are petrified and they're also the sand dunes between here here in Arizona, pack your kids into the car, take a drive there, read throw off there, I promise and I've done it. It's a completely different experience. Because you're sitting there saying and they sat in their sand dunes and you look around and Allah says and there's nothing left of their nations. They lived amply

00:41:31 --> 00:41:51

luxurious, they built summer homes and then they had little cottages down here in the valley. Nothing's left even though it's just Arizona. Take these times we'll see Rue fill out the form guru k for Karnataka to the mocha dB, go through the earth and see the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala now we come to a close as we try every week to try to stop before the Salah.

00:41:55 --> 00:42:01

So we can make our Sona who the alley salams nation and people also had a smaller

00:42:02 --> 00:42:18

a smaller problem. And this is that they began to indulge in the world as if it was never going to end. So I'd like you to write down to is for me, please. It's Surah 23 Swami noon. I am number 37 Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:42:19 --> 00:42:59

and reminds us that they lived in this world he had that he had a Lima two I don't they lived in this world and they were like, so you mean hey, we're gonna live and then someone's gonna bring us back to life. That sounds that sounds mentally deficient. So arrogance, wealth, getting diluted into this world eventually led them to believe no one's gonna raise this up, genuinely friends. Do you think people would party every Saturday night? Do you think Chris Brown would make the videos that he does if he thought it was gonna meet a less phenomenon? I mean, genuinely, at some point, you have to block out Allah subhanaw taala. In order to indulge in alcohol and drugs. In order to

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

indulge in Xena you have to block out everything behind you. And after a while when you don't think about it long enough. The concept of returning to a lot is what is the most difficult. So I'm going to start a brand new topic that we will exceed for the next two or three weeks. Number one, we said other money Saddam was someone who was forgetful. So we human beings constantly forget. She thought his solemn and the people of his time were combat in an attack with music, rationale, and adorning the self or being seductive. in that era. Sonam reminded us that death was inevitable that we were going to return to our Creator. New holiday, Sam told told us about sub, to be patient upon patient

00:43:43 --> 00:44:06

to be wise. And here in who that is the last time we're going to introduce something you didn't hear the other prophets talk about. What happened the prophets remind us about so far in our stories. Otherwise, I've never really said it knew Holly Sam didn't say either. What particle of faith have has not been spoken about yet? We'll talk about Allah about prophets about messages. What haven't we spoken about yet?

00:44:09 --> 00:44:17

We believe in Allah, we believe in messengers, we've talked about that. The angels that created that, that that were there. We talked about that, what component

00:44:18 --> 00:45:00

after, and I'm going to this was the my final thesis during during bachelors in my opinion, and this is now I can state clearly as an opinion of just my writing, I believe oxidize the biggest component of human. I could believe in a lot and still asleep through fudger. Because that lets iraq monitor him, right. He loves he loves me. I believe in the messengers, but at the end of the day, he's a messenger, I can never be that good. One component of Iman, that will get you out of the bed for fudger that will turn off the PC even when your parents aren't looking that will. you'll choose not to listen to that track to watch that thing to yell at your wife is if you know there's a contract.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:22

sequence for human beings, a man in the axilla as long as that is strong, you could make mistakes you could fall into sin you could try to get out of sin and you will still be in a state of yaqeen think about the first alladhina you know in a bit of Lavie, will you leave Mona salata Omarosa, whom you feel Kuhn will arena you want to be mountains in Idaho mountains kwabena harati

00:45:23 --> 00:45:33

Yaki they believed in it like it was in the past tense. So today I simply introduce this one concept in Surah 100. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:45:34 --> 00:45:39

well on Deontay Wilder have fun Maria

00:45:40 --> 00:46:23

in this 11 is Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to the opposite of twice, but the weird I'd say can use the word weird. In this he refers to akhira in the past tense twice. Why would you refer to something in the past tense? The Day of Judgment, which is coming in the future? Why would you and I know the adults will know young guys helped me out here. Why would I refer to something in the past in the past tense? That's the future. I am a doctor. But bro, you just got into medical school? What does that signify? What? What? Pardon? inevitable no matter what this is going to happen, right? No matter what I am definitely, definitely I'm going to have I'm going to be a doctor. So Allah

00:46:23 --> 00:46:38

subhanaw taala talks about the author in the past tense. With that we close the story of who the artists and I'm for now, next week B is in Allahu taala. What I would like to do and I'd like to put a little bit more time into it next week, someone needs to change the clock in Sharla.

00:46:39 --> 00:47:05

Next week, what I would like to do is I'd like to show you some of the miraculous nature of the construction of Quran you all know what balaclava is, right? There's grammar. There's no sir. And then there's something where you read the whole poem and you're like, Wow, I can't believe he said this, like this. I you know what I mean, you can see this in the Quran, why Allah let me give you a small example. Everyone say now Boudicca.

00:47:07 --> 00:47:28

Right now Buddha means we worship you want to start a new car, and we and we ask you for help. By saying young Ghana good, it changes the verb pattern, a little bit of grammar. It puts them off all behave First, the grammatical part that's supposed to come second, it puts it first. So when I translate iaca, what is iaca? translate out to?

00:47:30 --> 00:48:08

Only you, you alone, now Voodoo, translate into worship? So as a Muslim, you would say worship is more important than the oneness of Allah? What does Allah say? the oneness of Allah is more important. Because if everyone in this room didn't pray a shot, would Allah be any less than one? If you didn't follow the commandments of Allah, and you chose to, to to mark the Creator, you became like the monkey who made the YouTube video, right? Right. You made that and you're like, Oh, my God, look, now I'm going to affect Allah doesn't affect a lot. All that is a part of the beauty of the construction. A lot could have. But he did it this way. So what I'd like to do next week, inshallah

00:48:08 --> 00:48:47

we open up the eyes, may I request, may I request that you read Isaiah number 47, to 50 to be eaten Allahu taala. This will help us and we'll be able to go forward, the people of who the artists Alam lived in the area or they were the people of odd. And all I want you to recognize was they had and they had more they had and they had more upon this where they ended up and you would say But brother more Muslims should be wealthy, more Muslims should be educated. No one's saying that shouldn't be. But when we blur the line between the reality of this dunya and the reality of the Hereafter, then all of a sudden

00:48:49 --> 00:49:30

our society in our world becomes invalid. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who are balanced. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the opportunity Allahu Akbar Heroku bannermen and effect may Allah save us and cleanse our hearts from being to face What are madeleina Amina Ria and and Allah we ask you a protection from actions that are short for show off may keep our actions from showing off.

Oh Allah we asked you to protect our eyes from looking at that which will destroy our Eman. Oh Allah we ask you to protect our eyes from seeing that which is on
