Goodness Inside and Outside | illustrated | Nouman Ali Khan | Subtitled

falahum ajrun ghayrumamnoon
In the beginning I said, a modern person who

is not very religious makes two
observations about them. When he looks at

the world around him, he makes two

One, there is no goodness inside him. His
only motivations are animal motivations.

The second observation was on the outside.
His behavior is always corrupt. Given the

opportunity, he will do the wrong thing. And
they’ll cite like you know what happened

after Katrina; or what happened after the
earthquake, well looting stores and all kinds

stuff. The moment you give them an opportunity,

they turn into wild animals – literally,

Two observations: there’s no good inside;
and given the opportunity, there’s no good

outside. You now…
What is the remedy for that?

There are two problems, right? Inside problem
and outside problem.

Look at the sides: The inside problem is solved:
Illa allatheena amanoow

with the exception of those who believe.
Where is Imaan? Inside!

And what’s the remedy on the outside?
waAAamiloo assalihat

and the act of righteousness Now, when human
beings act, when human beings act, they want

some reward; they
want something. That’s why we act. We act

because we’re running after something. We
get up early, go for work – because we want

to get paid. You go and study for college
because you want to graduate. We act because

we want something.
Our wants are inside, our behaviors are outside.

Our wants will be cleansed if we have
what? Imaan… And when Imaan is inside, what

will be cleansed on the outside? Our

Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo assalihati

The incredible remedy being given to us.
Now, this is actually the first part. The

full explanation of
Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo assalihati

will come in Suratul Asr where it is fully
opened up.

Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo assalihati
watawasaw bilhaqqiwatawasaw

bissabr (103:3)
That’s a full explanation. Here it is being

alluded to. It’s like the seeds here, and
they will bloom into a flower there. But it’s

coming a little bit later on in the 103rd
ayah – or surah of the Qur’an.

Now, anyway,
falahum ajrun ghayrumamnoon

Then they, it’s only they – that have
ajar it is they, or recompense, a reward (ajar

is given to you after you put some work in).
Now, the work was on the inside and

on the outside. The work inside was already
provided with Imaan; the work on the

outside was doing good things that reconcile;
the things that correct. They have,

only they have the ajar, ghayrumamnoon that
is not going to be. Now, the word

mamnoon is not common in Arabic nowadays,
okay. Mamnoon comes from the

word “mann.” “Mann” in Arabic means
two things: it means “cut”; also means

“favor.” Two different things. For example,
(and this word came up before in Sūrat

al-Inshiqāq also). In the Arabic language,
Almaneemal Ghurab, the cloud of dust inthe

desert when it’s so thick that you can’t
even see the other side; it cuts your

view off. It’s called a maneem (same root)
because it’s cutting off the view.

The other meaning is mann. The implication
of it here is:

Number one: they will have a reward that will
never be cut off. They will have a

reward that will never be cut off. The benefit
of knowing this is their deeds are not

endless; their deeds are temporary, but the
rewards are endless. Everything else

you work for, the deeds are temporary and
the rewards are also temporary. So

you have to go back and do more and then get
more, and do more and then get

more; do more and get more. But now you are
getting to stop the rat race; you

just do this and then you’ll have endless

The other word, the word “mamnoon” is
“that which cannot be imposed as a

Meaning: Allah will give; Allah will give

and ask nothing in return. They will have
done their part.
Illa allatheena amanoowaAAamiloo assalihat
will have been their part.
