What happens to the soul when one dies ? Log on to “Free Quran Education” on Youtube.

Script

YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN!

he then gives the explanation of why
we’ve been chosen he says HUA IJTABAKUM

the easy translation of HUA IJTABAKUM is in fact he is the one he

has selected you he has chosen you but
the Arabic word here for choosing or

ijtiba that the word that selected here by
Allah is very special if you say the

word ikhtiar which is also a word for choice
then it comes from the word khair

meaning you prefer something or
something is you make a better choice

that’s ikhtiar you can say istifa in the Arabic

language which comes from safwa
purity when you make a choice you don’t

have to explain anybody – anybody else
why you made that choice for example

when you go shopping and you buy like a
blue shirt you don’t owe somebody a

scientific explanation why did you pick
the blue shirt why didn’t you get the

white shirt that’s this istifa purely
your choice there’s no rationale

necessary but when you say ijtiba which
is the word Allah chose here when he

described that he chose you and me to be
Muslim that word actually comes from

jabu jabu in Arabic in old Arabic
actually get the the verb used to be

used for tax collection back in the day
the people who made enough money owed

taxes obviously even now you have to be
above a certain level minimum income

before you’re qualified to be to be
selected for tax collection ijtiba

actually means to make a choice based on
qualifications so in other words you

know when you get hired for a job or if
you’re fixing your car or your your your

tightening a screw or something and you
pick the right tool for that job you

just did ijtiba because if you pick any
other tool it doesn’t do the job when

you make the right choice for the right
job that is called ijtiba in other words

what I’m trying to tell you and what I’m
trying to remind myself of is that when

Allah honored you and me to be Muslim
the fact that you and I say la ilaha

illallah the fact that you and I have
have the gift of say muhammad rasulullah

salallahu alaihe salam is actually a
very precise choice from Allah of you

and me there were plenty of other human
beings available before Allah on this

planet and Allah chose precisely you and
to be Muslim for a task that he has

because ijtiba is done for a
particular purpose for a task so now you

are we aren’t just chosen to be Muslim
were chosen to be Muslim because we have

a mission in front of us and that
mission he already describes is you have

to struggle for Allah as his worthy of
the struggle that should be made for him

huijitabakum and then he then he adds finally

now that I realize I’ve been chosen even
though I’ve been chosen I I’m still

thinking this is too hard of a job how
am I gonna do this

fine Allah sees something in me I don’t
even see it in myself I don’t even see

what’s so special about me why did I get
chosen you know there’s so many better

people out there but Allah and this is
too hard anyways islam is way too hard

the what Allah is asking of me is too
much I can’t do it and what are the next

words from Allah Himself wa ma ja la ilaikum fi din hurj he did not

place for you in the religion any
difficulty any discomfort any tightness

whatsoever in other words this is Allah
Himself telling you relax I’ll make it

easy don’t you worry about that you’re
the right man for the job you’re the

right woman for the job you are the one
chosen for this time this day in this

age you know when you look around now
you see that Muslims are what we are the

target of media attention political
craziness I travel to England all the

time but this last time I traveled I got
exhaustively questioned what are you

doing here
you know I got a question like why are

you here that’s never happened before so
most things are becoming tougher and

tougher for Muslims they are in many
many ways but that’s ok you know what

Allah chose you and me to be born in
this generation in this day and age

knowing full well these are the trials
were going to have and the best people

qualified to struggle in these trials
are the Muslims alive today

that’s the choice of Allah that’s why
here that’s why you and I are taking a

breath right now if we didn’t have a
purpose for us because he only creates

for purpose Khalaq as samawat wal arze bil haq wa sawarakum

he created the skies and the earth with
precise purpose and molded you so he

molded you and me
put us in this position because we have

a purpose to serve and then even though
that’s a challenging purpose Allah

Himself gives the orientation and says
I’m not gonna make it any hard for you

it’s not going to be difficult at all
I’ll take you back to the analogy I gave

you in the beginning there’s that job
interview and the guy gave you an

impossible job description and you’re
sitting there thinking there’s no way

I’ll get hired and then he hires you and
your first thought is I’m not qualified

and he says relax I know what I’m doing
I’ve been hiring for a long time I see

something in you even if you don’t think
you know you’ll learn pretty quickly you

know I I know tell it when I see it
so he’s encouraging you and he’s

acknowledging you in a way that you
didn’t even think you saw in yourself

the other thing that’s happening here is
every Muslim is supposed to see value in

themselves no believer can think that
they’re useless before Allah that

they’re pointless that they are
meaningless before Allah they’re

worthless they are worthy of Allah
they’re worthy because Allah made a
special choice of them a special choice
of them
