Allah Doesn’t Burden A Soul Beyond its capacity | Subtitled

Assalamu alaikum Qur’an Weekly I wanted to share with you (something) from the 3rd juz, just the last ayah Just something from the last ayah of Surat Al-Baqarah It’s a long ayah I’ll be sharing with you just a few reflections from the first part of this ayah… “لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا”which is… The word “Taklif” in Arabic means “to be burdened with something” And Allah says Allah does not burden any individual Allah will not burden any single person Except to that person’s capacity Which actually means any trials you and I go through in life are actually custom-tailored to our capability to manage them What somebody else is going through may not be something I can handle And what I’m going through may not be something they can handle The gifts we enjoy in life and the difficulties we suffer in life The hardships and the trials we suffer in life, each of them, are actually custom-tailored to our own individual personalities So Allah says He does not burden anybody more than they, in particular, are capable of bearing The other thing that is remarkable about this ayah is there are something all of us have equal responsibility for Right? So there are commandments of Islam that you can’t say: “I know you can do it, but I cannot” “It’s not my personality” Like 5 prayers, for example, you can’t say, “MashaAllah, I know you pray 5 times.” “I can do it in Ramadan but usually it’s impossible for me. I’m not able to do that.” You can’t make that excuse because… These are a few of the commandments of Allah, are ones that He put on every nafs He put it on every individual that you have to be able to do it And there are very very very few few few exceptions to those that have to be in very minute cases And even then there is differences of opinion But they are pretty much universal laws And the major things that are forbidden and the major things that are obligatory on Muslims You cannot make the excuse for yourself that “Allah understands that I’m not exactly the prayer type” Or “I’m not a morning person, so I can’t really do Fajr” That’s not gonna be the case Allah burdened us with these responsibilities, knowing that every single human being is actually capable of praying 5 times Every human being, every Muslim is capable of staying away from haraam You are capable of doing these things So when you tell yourself you can’t, and when you convince yourself that you can’t Then you are actually denying something Allah said about you that you actually can That you are capable And then Allah would never have given these things for you and me to do If we weren’t capable of doing it So you have to ask yourself, “Am I being true to myself when I say I cannot?” Or “Is Allah being true when He says that “You can” That “I wouldn’t have given it to you unless you could have handled it” This is the really honest question that you and I have to ask ourselves Especially when it comes to the major commandments of Allah azza wajjal لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ,And finally I will take half a minute just to share one beautiful thing with you Allah says, a person will benefit from whatever they earn, they will have for themselves whatever they earn And whatever they earned in terms of sin will go against them So there are something you earn that will go for you And other things you earn that will go against you But in the Arabic “Kasaba” which is easier was used for good deeds (For) what works for you And “Iktasaba” which is actually harder to earn was used for bad deeds Which is weird because we think sins are easier to earn and good deeds are hard to earn But Allah is actually telling us in this ayah a secret Sins may be easy to earn in the short term But what you pay for them in the long term bring about so much difficulty And what you’ve earn in terms of problems and difficulties in your life There’s so much hardship because of that disobedience to Allah that it actually doesn’t count as something easy Like, stealing may be easy but doing time in jail may be pretty hard So what you did as an act of stupidity may have been really easy on you at that time But the price you paid for it made it a very difficult and bad thing that you did for yourself And getting a job, working hard and earning money the right way may be really hard But the hardship you save yourself Compared to that(hardship), what you’re doing is pretty easy The alternative is pretty easy That’s the view Allah want us to have of good deeds and bad deeds Good deeds may require a lot more work, but Allah will make them easy And bad deeds may be much much easier to do But you will pay the price and you’ll realize how much difficulty that actually put you in, in your life So don’t overestimate the burden that Allah has put on you as far as responsibilities And don’t underestimate the weight of sin Don’t underestimate and don’t think that “It’s just something I do, who cares?” And (do not) not think about the burdens and the troubles it will bring you tomorrow And especially when you and I stand in front of Allah

  7. You people r really doing great job…May Allah help u in this ,may Allah help you do more good deeds for the ummah

  8. I really liked this video because this issue has been bothering me lately. I recently had something happen that I couldn't handle. I thought Allah gave me this thing, because I'd been praying for almost this exact thing. But when I got it, the situation made me very physically sick and I couldn't handle it.

    So I've been asking why did Allah give me something I couldn't handle when He said he won't? But this video made me realize I DID handle it! I got out of this situation, and learned some valuable lessons in the process. I did handle it by being strong and getting out, and healing up again. And I'm prepared for how to handle similar things next time.

    Never stop looking for answers.

  9. Do you have any graphic video about Zuhd and Wara'? It's an interesting personality of Muslim which is so important in today's modern life, that is about how to deal with wealth and career.

    Zuhd is leaving what's not beneficial in the afterlife; so when we've got the world in our hands, we don't use it for pleasure though we may do that. Just like when Rasulullah and the sahabah spent their wealth in jihad instead of building a big house nor getting any dunya thing.

    Wara' is holding oursleves from doing anything that will disadvantage us in the afterlife; so, before we do something, we think about sin and reward in the afterlife. In the context of wealth, we will always think about the halal/haram when getting a job or making money.

    I think this is the connector between dunya and jannah. I mean Muslims aren't commanded to be poor, but suggested to be rich instead. Because with wealth we can reach jannah, as long as we stay with the right personality like zuhd and wara'.

  10. I'm a muslim and ofc i beleive Allah doesnt burden a soul more than it can bear. But many muslims commit suicide due to the fact they cant take the pain and suffering of the 'tests' and 'tribulations' Allah swt puts them through. Any thoughts/ explanations?

  11. السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
    ما شاء الله لا قوة إلا بالله
    Great job!
    May Allah reward you for all your efforts🌷🌷
    I just have one note.
    In arabic, the verb (yaktasib=يكتسب), which is the present tense of the verb (ektasaba=اكتسب), means (to gain). This verb does not necessarily refers to gaining something bad, but it's lingually eloquent to be used in this context. I mean it is correct for sure to use it to refer to gaining something bad.
    😊That's it .
    Thank you again for this benefical video.🌷🌷

  12. Watching this with heavy heart and sadness while going through a tough trial..good lesson Mashallah :)may Allah ease our pain and relief burden..ameen:)

  13. MaasyaAllah … I like listening to your recitation of the verses from Surah Baqarah… there is a ring of confidence and clarity with beautiful Tajweed in your recitation! … SubhanAllah.
    Furthermore, listening to your lectures have given me so much understanding of the Quran, whatmore with beautiful illustrations…so much support to learn the Quran … Alhamdulillah. You have the gift of giving explanations with so much humility that I find peace in my heart and mind even when I'm experiencing the biggest calamity ever experienced. Your voice and knowledge have given me assurance in that Allah Does not burden us beyond our capacity … I truly believe that!.. SubhanAllah. I've just wriiten a letter to a person who has treated me unfairly! However, I ended the letter by saying "May peace be with you" and with a smiley icon… Alhamdulillah
    JazskAllahu Khairan Kathira Uztadz NAK.✔✔✔

  14. This makes total sense to all disbelieving people who still don't get about Allah's plan. Allah is testing us with our capabilities, not that Allh wanted us to be miserable with the tests.

    May Allah reward you for you explanation 🙂 <3

  15. Just a little correction if you will take it and add it to the video…If one is in sickness where it is impossible or nearly impossible to perform one of the prayers, for example, it is alright to modify it for oneself (say it while sitting, or lying down, etc) or in severe cases, not say that particular prayer. May Allah correct me for any mistake I have made.

  16. I love my religion, it gets me through so much and keeps me strong. Thank you for uploading these videos and reminding us how amazing Islam is!

  17. does this means that each soul has a different or same capacity of burden that they are able to withstand. for example let say if i am able to handle more , does this mean i will be tested more ? and others would be tested less.
