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

The next question is from Abdul,

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

Qadir Kabir, from Nigeria. The Quran mentioned that it's Allah who guides whom He wills and lead astray whom evils if alive, the one who guide then how can he punish the ones who are led astray?

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

And that's a very good question.

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

asked by AbdulQadir.

00:00:26--> 00:00:42

What is he referring to? is a verse of the Quran from cerebra him chapter number 14, verse number four, that it Allah who guides who he wishes, and he leads astray who he wishes. So based on the verse of the Quran, the question is posing, then how can Allah punish

00:00:44--> 00:00:53

those people who have gone straight if Allah they want to do this? Before I give the answer, I'd like to give an example, that if there is a teacher,

00:00:55--> 00:01:06

who is teaching the class, and telling the students that this is the portion of the examination, and the teacher is the complete portion of a particular subject, gives the textbook the rules and regulation.

00:01:08--> 00:01:51

And that one student who's very intelligent, who comes in as the teacher questions if a teacher clarifies give the student more time. There's another student who bangs the classes who keeps on teasing the teacher in the classroom doesn't obey the teacher, criticizing the teacher doesn't ask any question. But as the teacher realizes that that student who is intelligent and asking question and we teacher, as guided him, is bound to score good marks in the examination, and the student who plays hooky. And who criticizes the teacher doesn't listen to the teacher is bound to fail. After the year, the examination takes place, and the teacher give first class First, the first student and

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

fails the student who was playing hooky, who was not interested in studies who criticize the teacher.

00:02:00--> 00:02:07

Time a third student say that the teacher is not just first student, the teacher supported,

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

answered the question

00:02:10--> 00:02:15

and passed him and gave me first class first. The second student

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

didn't help him and failed him.

00:02:20--> 00:02:40

It is illogical, because the first student went out of his way to ask questions and clarify whatever we didn't understand, the teacher answered, which is even the second friend we have done that. The second student neither asked any question criticize went against the commandments of the teacher is bound to fail. So how can you blame the teacher that why did the teacher fail? And

00:02:42--> 00:03:25

similarly, Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in surah, chapter number 67 was number two LSA collateral Mata Mata its Allah was created that and life to test which of us could indeed so this life is a test for the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala has laid down the rules and regulations for the human beings in the Glorious Quran. The rules and regulations how a human being should follow the commandments of Allah He has sent several revelations. But the last and final revelation, which is available in the authentic form, in the original form is the Quran. And for details, you have to refer to the teeth of the Beloved Prophet masala. Allah further says in the Quran, in Surah,

00:03:25--> 00:04:06

uncouth, chapter number 29, verse number 69, that all those who strive, do jihad strive and struggle in the path of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will open up his path with Allah says in Surah cafr chapter 40 was number 28. But Allah will not guide those who do transfiguration and those who tell lies. So unless very clear or do strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will open up his pathway that put them in Jannah all those who do transgression and do sin, and who lie, unloving and guide them. So those people who are misguided are not following the rules of Allah subhanaw taala given in the Quran and

00:04:07--> 00:04:44

similarly, the example of the teacher that the student who wants to learn more ask question then strives to know more knowledge is the example of fully uncovered chapter one and verse 69, that those who strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will open up the path he will put them in Jannah for those people who are not obeying the commandments, why should Allah guide them for lead? Right? He will lead a strip from people who he wishes and He will guide some people who he wishes allender arbejde Okay, fine, you look handsome, I will guide you don't look at them, I will not guide you know, there are rules and regulations, that if you follow the commandments of Allah

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

Subhana Allah will guide you, if you don't follow the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala if you do translation, if you do thin, if you do ship, Allah will not guide you. So what is it logical? So why are you blaming the teacher when she or he feels the student for yourself?

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Last minute Allah is not guiding him because he's doing sin. And a person who does sin and strive and ask for forgiveness, a lot takes him out from darkness to light versus the Quran. Allah takes a person from darkness to light, those who have the desire to follow the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. Even if they sin, if they ask for forgiveness and then forgive them, Allah will lead them to the straight path. But those people who abuse Allah who do sherek who don't follow His commandments, surely he will lead them astray. Leading astray means they will go to general so this is totally logical.

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

Allah subhanaw taala is the most just as Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter four verse number 40. Allah never adjusted the lifting of them to the question
