let us get started.
Mr. sola said I want to love
I said I want to come
my way good. How's everybody doing?
I just sent him a message on the whatsapp group, because I figured now everybody's used to be I don't use
Oh, my bad, okay.
I assume that you were gonna show him or hate him.
But do you want me to send the email every day? Because I assume that everyone's fine to come out.
Okay, sounds good, I will send that email out inshallah.
Before the time, the time the class starts, in fact, maybe just let me send this email out right now how about that just so that people who are kind of waiting for it, get it and they also feel that, you know, things are the way they've been going, Hey, sounds good. Just give me a moment to do that. In the meantime, here's what our plan is for today. Our plan for today is we're going to transition to another part of the Quran that speaks about the story of Adam and, and the creation. And this time, this part of the Quran actually focuses on the conversation between a love and a police a very fascinating passage, okay, this is going to be from Surah number seven surah RF, okay. And what I
need is I, I'm going to pick a, you know, a couple of people, okay, I'm going to pick two people. inshallah, today,
what we will do in the very beginning of this shared the send the email out, here is what we're going to do, we are going to,
we are going to
have a citation of this,
of this part of the Quran, I'm going to recite, and what I'm going to do is I have two people who are going to read the translation with me it like so I'll read the Arabic and they'll read the, they'll read the, the English translation. Now, after those of you who are not meaning, you have to follow along and pay attention. Hmm, you know why? Because the hoops that we will do is going to be entirely from the translation that we're reading. Okay. So you have to follow the translation very, very closely. Okay. So I'm gonna ask for a couple of volunteers. Just raise your hand, I'm going to mute everybody.
And then I will actually unmute the people that I need. For this particular test. I gotta have you can have a few people. Maybe a one boy and one girl.
Okay, we have lots of
possible people wanting to do this. Okay, let me pick.
All right, let me get
Zane up on the girls. And let's see, let me take
from one of the boys. Let me take a little money. Okay, so I'm gonna go say, both of you.
All right, very good. Here's how we're gonna do it. I'm gonna read the first line. I will translate the second I will translate you guys with me? Yep. Okay.
Can you see the?
The eye on the screen? Yeah, you can see it, right. Okay, so I'm going to keep your mic. unmuted. And just as I'm speaking, you gotta
just keep it on. Okay. Okay. All right. Okay. Okay, so I'm going to start and when you start reciting the Quran, the first thing we do is say Allah will let him initiate on energy, okay.
It's also nice to say Bismillah. So I will say both of those and then get started. Then you're going to be reading the translation right after I'm done. Okay.

Okay, now here's what we're gonna do. Are you guys ready for this? I was what we had read. Now we're gonna play this Kahoot each other that is basically going to see what we learned from the story of Adam and Eve from sorting out off that one we just did. Okay, I'm going to start at a steam mode again. randomize the answers. And there we go. Okay, kindly, please join the Kahoot inshallah, there is the key.
All right. Hold on here.
Amazing. Thank you very much. You guys are awesome.
Mine is still loading. That's all right.
Live on YouTube.
All right. So are you lying on YouTube?
Let's get started a giordana.
When I started who hold on? Wait one second. Really? Yeah.
Okay, there's 20 finalists or 21 teams, okay, so not all of us are on here.
Okay, I'm gonna get started with
Everyone's on. Almost no loadings. Okay, my goodness, all right.
It's not working. Oh, no, okay. It's just keep attempting it inshallah, it will be fine. Okay. Just maybe refresh and try again. Again,
All right people. Let's get started
Atomy Eve the conversation between Allah and Emily's great. prostrate yourselves before Adam, Who said this? It wasn't Adam, angels or beliefs or Allah.
The answer to that question is, it was Allah subhanahu wa taala. Who said that, that?
Make prostration or bow down to Adam prostrate yourselves before Adam. Perfect. So what's the code? The code is 8481613 Let me put this here in the chat. Is that okay guys? You see the code?
yes or no?
Okay, perfect. Next question.
No one shall not there's a lot of good people with 1000s.
Okay, prostrate yourself before Adam, who was the set to?
Good, both answers are correct. It is set to the angels It was also set to Emily's who is with the angels. That is correct. Well done to you all. It was of course not said to Allah. Allah is the one who was saying it. All right. Oh, wow.
Next question. The angels prostrated to Adam.
True or false?
That is actually true. The angels are prostrate on Islam. Of course, it doesn't mean that they were worshipping Allah Muslim, they proceeded to Adam, and it was by the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Just like we discussed it last time that you don't if someone prostrates to the garba they're not worshiping the Kaaba, but they're in fact worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala Hmm. Okay, very good.
A brute Iblees prostrated to Adam. True or false.
That is false, it bleeds did not do so. That is actually not
true. So very good. For those of you who got that, that's all right. All right. Next question. At least was an angel.
That is actually false. He wasn't an angel even though he has, you know, he was there with the angels doesn't mean he was an angel. Okay. And this is something the Quran tells us explicitly, Ghana mineral Genie, he was a gin and he did not was a cold
he was not an angel. Okay, very good. Mashallah. Well done. Next question.
Next question is
he replied, I am better than he is. You created me from fire while you created him from clay Who said that?
Who said that?
That was said my beliefs. That was not said by a lot of course, that was said by a police. Okay, very good. Next question.
Get down from here. There is no place for your arrogance Who said this?
Last month I said that and
give me respect until the Day of Resurrection was said by
The individual or which particular entity here
correct at least set to a lot a login me despite until the Day of Judgment okay so it leaves was allowed to live until the end of time by Allah true or false
not to some people who still waiting one person's answer nereo true because he said I'm Vinny laomi rifle, allow me to live to the time Allah said to him in a communal Wolverine, you can live to the end of time. So in fact he is someone who has lived on since the time of Ottoman Islam and continues to live on until the end of time until the day of judgment when everyone is until the end before the beginning of the day of judgment when everybody on earth will be dead. So that is something that he specially requested or asked for and he was granted by Allah right next question because you have put me in the wrong who said that
that was set by blease not by Adam elements I'm didn't say anything in this conversation yet has he? He says they're part of the conversation. not said anything yet though. Good.
Who was this said to because you have put me in the wrong
who was this set to?
This was set to a loss pantalla it please set this to Allah gleaming Allah for what he had done. And you know, that is essentially who he is. He blamed Allah for his own flaws, his own mistakes. That's, you know, it's shocking, but that's actually one of the things that is that defines the devil right? The one who blamed a lot and said all are you wrong? And I'm right. You chose wrong the menu chose Adam. Okay, last question. Who's the goat?
my hand then who's? Who? The sugar. ca What was that? Me? I'll say your name because I don't have the list on in front of me right now. Who is Isa? Aisha? Okay. Very nice. Me. Who's that?
mod. Yes sir.
Yes, sir Zhu,
mala All right. Okay, last question. This is a very close game you're off by like 20 point like 20 points. This last question can determine it. Pay attention to the question. This is a trick question. All right.
Fill in the blank, but do not eat a lot approach blank tree, a tree the tree this tree or any tree
a tricky question and the answer Mashallah the vast majority of you got it right. Do not approach this tree as excellent that you paid attention to that that Allah said
this tree and I'll tell you why he said this tree there's actually a really powerful Reason number three Mashallah Asana third place second base Colby All right. First place is
me know what happened to him. When you
know, buddy, it was this tree. There was this tree. Takahashi shujaa this tree. Okay, very good. Very good. Good job, buddy. He had an answer streak of Yes, he had an answer sheet of some 12 answers, but the last one was the one that determined who won Mashallah, great job, everybody. Let's go back to my screen here. Leave this.
I'm going to just fix this up a little bit here. All right. So here's what we're gonna do.
We're gonna go to
I'm glad that all of you go
the we were paying attention during the translation. And in the group we, I asked you specific questions, this composition between a line and this is a very interesting and fascinating conversation. And that is actually what we're going to talk about today. The deception of the devil, okay? The deception of the devil that is the topic for us today, and this is from that passage that we read today to recap of at least is that he is a jinn. And he is somebody who is the head of the evil genius, the shell team, again, he was a devoted worshiper
to Allah, he wasn't there, whatever. Sure, excuse me. And then he refused to bow before Adam. And when he refused to bow before Adam, that is when
that was the downfall for him, not because he made a mistake, but in fact, he argued that he's better than Adam. Okay. He argued that Allah made a mistake.
He blames God for his, his, his problems, he says, You chose the wrong will God not me, and then he vows to misguide mankind. Okay, he vows to misguide mankind that says I am going to the Oppo rudan Allah home Serato team, I am going to be the one who sits on your street capital and I am going to misguide these people. And now the interesting thing is, that's how we understand evil in this world. Okay, the way we understand he will in the world
good and evil. Okay. This is like if you do like if you're in high school, or you do book reports, this is a common theme of books, the battle between good and evil. This is something we always are concerned about, how do we define good and how do we define evil? The way we understand it in the Quran? In fact, the way we understand it in Islam is that
he said, like the devil said here, okay, and this is the
upper upper road and Allahu serrata can muster Hakim.
He said, because you have put them in the wrong I will lie in ambush for them on your street pat him.
This is like the main reason or why evil exists in the world. Okay, it's not all of like, not all evil is because of the devil or something. People themselves are actually a devilish In fact, the Quran refers to people who are humans acting like devils. But the reality is that the, the main source, or the engine that drives evil, let's put it this way the engine that you know, drives evil is in police. And the counter to that but one that is there to provide good, okay? The one the carriers of good
are the prophets of Allah. Okay, Allah, Allah sends prophets to our time with them, he sends revelation and they are the carriers of good to the people. They're the ones who will bring good to the people as a counter as a way to
fight against the evil that at least is ringing This is how we understand. For us the idea of getting people now it bleeds says something very interesting here he right he said
know Hayden Minho. Right? He said, I am better than he is.
People he would mean
I am better. This is what he said. Please, right. doesn't know who.
Yes. Okay. He said I am better than him.
And what's the reason that he provides? He says You created me from fire while you created him from clay?
Hmm, those are no question for you all.
is fire better than clay? Don't answer just yet. Okay.
is the question clear to you all? Is fire better than clear? How many of you understand this question?
Thumbs up? All right in the chat. Yes. I got the question. Yes.
Okay, very good. Muhammad, you didn't get the question. The question is, but know that only one answer right now. Just just, you got everybody got the question.
Okay, we're gonna try to live breakout group again. Okay. And what I'm going to do in the breakout group is I'm going to make this time the breakout groups.
I'm going to make them really small, okay, there's going to be two or three people per room, Max. Good. And that's what you're going to discuss in the breakout group is far better than Craig, give me your reasons, yes or no. And then after that, we'll come back together. And I'll ask you, why do you feel that's the case? Ready?
open all the rooms. Go ahead. Join the room, please. As they are there. It's selecting you randomly. Please don't worry about just try to join the group. And please try to follow what
the instructions are. is fire burning.
Nice to meet you.
Can you hear me?
Yeah, I can hear you.
Hear me now.
I'm going to mute you all and then I'm going to unmute you. Say when I say admin asked you are you back? Say yes. Okay. On three. Are you back on? 3123? Yes, yes.
All right. Perfect. Very good.
Okay, so is fire. Better than clay? What do you guys think?
People say yes. We will say no, no fires done.
No better. Why do you say that? Yeah.
Good quick well because while I'm like fire is like I don't know if it's just like the fire has always been that the bad side of people like with like was created by fire was like always
start off being evil it would be evil and everything
all right so your points of fire kind of like represents Evil has been
the way you appear to people you probably will look evil if you were created by fire then.
Okay Good point.
If I can have people just like raise your hand they'll be really nice in charm Okay,
so I have a blue honey. Yes a blue bunny.
What do you say?
You don't say anything? I'm gonna come on. Are you got your hand up?
No more shady. What do you say? I say
I send a quiz but it goes one
click and stopping click
click and put on fire. Right? Yeah.
Excellent. Very good. Okay, we have Sarah Yes. Go ahead sorrow.
I think clay is better because fire is is like fire is a police and a police causes the bad stuff in this world. Perfect. So fire has been representing evil, right? Yeah, that's why it's called hellfire. That's why it's called hellfire. All right. Let's see what he has to say.
I think the guy's perspective but
our entire civilization if you didn't have fire, we'd be in a lot of trouble. Yeah, so what can you say? Can I put that under? Yes.
Yeah. Okay, so fire is like
you all right.
Yes or no? Yes.
For making useful things.
Okay, very good. Thank you, sir. All right, let's see, Mandala
clay or Earth is seen as as a means for growth and planting. Crystal Klee is represents growth and plantings are right. Yeah, very nice. Okay, maybe what do you think?
It's like, not just that like,
like, dirt is dirt and fires fire. It's also like, just like fire seems more.
Like, I don't think it's better than clay. Because clay in a way is like more not humble. But like, it's not as
you know, like, it doesn't seem as like evil or presenting as many bad things as firewood, or clay doesn't represent evil. Right.
Good. Let's see. Thank you for that. What do you think?
I think they're both because they're both created by the same God. So what do you say?
Both are the same? Because both of them are created by law. What are the same? Right? Or maybe let's put like some yes or no, it's like, let's put any, the question is not applicable. However, that.
Is that an option? Perhaps? to our question?
Yeah, but both are allows creation. Okay, excellent. Thank you. All right.
Well, both fire and clay have their benefits but also get out of hand easily.
While click could be more useful in building so I think it would be at the end a because they could both be used for benefits but they can also get out of hand or not be useful.
And both can not. Okay. Can also
be not useful, right.
Perfect. Very nice. Okay, I'm gonna ask a few more people you're not and then millennium, okay.
Okay, I like that very nice.
I don't think they're very comparable because they're both good at different things and bad at different things. So they're not like stumbler
They're both totally different. not available. Thank you. Right. They're not the two different things. Right. Have you ever have you ever heard like apples to orange apples oranges comparison?
Right? This is kind of an apples to oranges comparison. Okay, very good. Thank you Xena blast one.
I think that they are both the same, because allow me Jen and humans.
He made them almost the same qualities like he led us, like get married. He let us have lives He will judge us in the Day of Judgment.
Gave us both the freedom of choice. Yeah. Awesome.
Yeah, it's not a question of better or worse. Okay. Excellent. Thank you very much. I'm really appreciative how, like profound your answers were. And I'm glad that you were able to discuss this before. We were able to talk about it together, it bleeds says I am better. Well, what's the reason you better or at least he says I'm better because I am from fire and he's from clay. And fire is better than clay. Okay, now, we could see to at least we can set at least a police. Fire isn't necessarily better than clean. All right, you can say that. Why? Because of all the reasons you listed out fire or clay can put out the fire quake can represent growth. Clay doesn't represent
evil, for example. Okay. Well, another answer or a, I think a more precise answer is they're not comparable, they both have their own usages fire is used to cook clay is the pot that you put on the fire to cook food. If you don't have clay, and you don't have fire. You can't I mean, if you if you have one or the other, you don't have food. If you have just a pot and no fire, you can't cook, if you just have fire and no utensils or containers. Again, you can put your food anywhere, right. So in fact, this is not comparable. The point of this discussion was is as follows. A blease actually has no logical it beliefs has no logical argument to make him. He says I'm better because I made
from fire. That's not this. There's no logic. But it sounds like it has some like reasoning, right? Like he's providing some reasoning. And this is one of the biggest deceptions of the devil. It
he wants to do something
that he like that says his desire, that's what he wants, okay?
He knows isn't correct.
But he will justify it.
To to know or to get over that hump, he will justify it by using flawed reasoning. Okay, this is like a big part of the devil's deception. If you think about this, if someone is doing something that they know, isn't right,
they probably will not do it because they're like, you know what, I know it's not right. So I should stop. But then what elease will do for the devil will do is he will whisper or he will send him another devil that will whisper and justify that action in your mind using some sort of flawed reasoning.
And that then convinces a person to say, you know what, I have some reason, I can do the same. I don't have to stop. I'll give you an example. In Islam, we're not allowed to lie. Okay. In fact, the only time lies are allowed are, it's it's like 0.001% of times. And it's sometimes a matter of life and death really, where a person is allowed to lie, or a matter of war and peace. Other than that, lies are completely out of bounds. When we are
having conversations, making small talk, joking in all aspects, we have to speak the truth. You can be humorous, you can be funny, you can, you know, be yourself but you can't say something that's not true. Now, if a person gets in trouble, okay, the the temptation is to cover that up by lying as a means to protect ourselves. Isn't that right? But then what happens is like as a person is doing this, it was consciously or subconsciously, you know, that that's not correct. I should know I shouldn't lie.
But then there is some reasoning that a person may provide themselves. You know what? This, you know, this person lies all the time. And this is not really a lie This is this are I'm not really no, I'm not saying this. I'm just, you know, I'm just gonna tell him half the story. Whatever way you justify to yourself. flawed reasoning allows you to say, you know what, I'll just do this and it'll be fine. That is the devil's deception. Okay, that is the deception of the devil, that he fell into himself this trap. He argued he's better. And he had no argument. There's no basis for the argument. There's no comparison between fire and clay, but he wants to be right. He wants to be
bigger than who Allah chose him to be. And thus he justifies his actions by these flawed things. He's flawed reasonings. That's very, very important for us to be very careful of when we are, you know, living our lives. We can't fall in this trap of, of the devil, where we do something wrong, and say, You know what, no, it's not wrong. That's right. That's a problem. Hey, what's good is you do something wrong, and say, You know what, I was wrong. I'm sorry. I'm going to try not to do it again. That's a very honorable thing to do. But what's dishonorable is to say no, I wasn't wrong, this is I was right all along. I wasn't wrong, when in fact, the person is actually wrong. So that
is a very, very critical aspect of the deception of the devil. Now, he also says,
Now, I was expelled him from Paradise.
At least says I will Ulla will come and attack the children of Adam from all sides. Okay. And that serves that, that that that story that idea serves as the basis for good and evil men. shadley mahalo good. I mean, you did something wrong was okay. Cause we learn from mistakes perfect excellence are a melda right.
It blease was like I'm going to I'm gonna get I'm going to take Adam down and I'm going to take the kids of Adam down. I don't care that is my singular mission in life. Now.
Alice has to add them all Adam, you and your wife dwell in the garden and eat and drink from wherever you wish. But don't approach our tree the tree or this tree
the hood said
this tree this tree
decoded this tree, huh?
This is very interesting. Why?
Why is a lot what? So let me just show you. The Arabic word for this here is happy. Okay.
How's he you guys are discussing about well how the sun is made. Okay.
All right. Give me like, come back to the main topic here. Thank you. Haha, he means what?
Yes. Okay. But how have you been in Arabic is for something that is close? Or what says this tree
question for you. Why is he saying this tree? Not the tree. Any thoughts on this?
It's more logical, better grammars
okay, but both of them would be equivalent logically.
sure, good point.
It was a specific tree. Case specific tree.
I like that.
So why not get why not? That tree?
Oh, who said that?
Sorry. I don't. Oh, Allah. Closer. Okay. Excellent.
What Allah is saying, Don't come near this treat. Dr. Maha de shudra you
idea is that up
that one tree of all the trees in paradise will become extremely tempting. For Adam. Hmm. Extremely tempting for any other tree except for that one because? Well,
right. So extremely tempting for Adam. He's allowed to eat from any tree.
Any tree in Paradise, anything he wants in paradise he gave it the only thing he can't. Is this tree, the one tree, it becomes tempting. And here's the reality of temptations. temptations
extremely close to us. And all like the desire for temptations is close. It's very, like deep in us.
So Allah is warning, Adam is telling him, don't let the temptation of this tree get to you. Hey, recognize the the forbidden fruit? Yes. Recognize that?
Even if it seems against the odds, temptations
are very close. Okay.
When something is allowed, and something is, you know, accessible, something that's permissible, it's attractive, but it's not that sought As tempting as something that is forbidden. Okay. And that's what Allah is telling Adam is okay. Don't call that Takahashi shadow This is close to you, you may think it's just one tree. You may think, well, this is something small, you'll never do it. But temptations are very, very close. And very deep. Sorry, I have a question. Go ahead.
Now, why that specific tree?
We don't know. Why is that specific tree? We don't even know what type of tree it was okay.
Hmm. Wasn't it a test? It was a test. But why a specific tree that we don't know why, you know, why that one? We don't know that. A lot of them tell us that. In fact, he doesn't tell us that. Because in reality that is not relevant to our discussion. Right. It's not relevant to the point of the story, the point of the story is temptations, right. You may think you are human, you will be tempted. But you don't know. It is close. It'll get to you. And you might be pressured into it. Here's what's going to happen to Adam. Right? You guys have heard of peer pressure.
And you've heard of peer pressure. Yeah.
Adam is gonna get peer pressure into into eating from this tree. Hey, I'll give you an example. Okay, and as many of you who are younger, but
those, for example, people who go like, slightly older than you who go to university, and maybe they go away to university, they're living on campus, right? What happens on campus is there's a lot of parties, people drink a lot people do all sorts of things that are islamically unacceptable, girls and guys hooking up all the stuff you don't accept, okay? Now, what happens is a good Muslim, you know, more girls gonna go there. And now they're surrounded by these things that when they were not surrounded by them, they're like, Hey, you know, it's not a big deal. I'm not tempted by that. But now when it's everywhere, and maybe your friends are forcing you, and people are like, you're going
to fit in, you're going to drink with this with us. And that pressure is mounting, the pressure is mounting. Something that otherwise wouldn't be tempting, becomes extremely difficult to resist. That is what I was warning Adam against, is like, oh, Adam, don't come near this tree. Because that temptation, you will eventually get into it. The peer pressure will get you eventually Don't let it get to.
That that's why Allah uses the word this for closeness. Not that for for or just a single word. Okay? For what salsa la shavon. Now the peer pressure or peer pressure of the devil. He tempted them was wassa
wassa wassa is the Arabic word for what suasana who misshapen Satan tempted them. what's what's
Use you see how if I pronounce it correctly how it sounds? Was was a whisper, whisper right? Was was a whisper very similar sounding, because that's what the idea of was was a is to whisper temptations. Okay. Here's a question.
The devil was kicked out of Paradise right? Yes or no?
Yes. Right. The devil was kicked out. He wasn't in paradise. It was put to him. No, you are expelled from Paradise. Huh?
How did he Now in this ayah? He said to Adam, he says, Oh Adam, your Lord has forbidden you to approach the street. Lest you become angels or become Immortals. How could the devil enter the paradise Any ideas?
Because for me, because he vowed to steer people out of like the people about him out of out of the straight path. So he kind of was able to go in because his purpose was to make Adam basically fall. Exactly. Right. So the question is, how
how did the devil
enter Paradise give an excellent response on a Sunday, you said that
his purpose was
to misguide Adam, right.
And then what else did you say to them?
That was it. Was it right? Okay, perfect. So his purpose was to misguide Adam,
here's the thing that's interesting. If a person knows why they're doing something,
if you know why you're doing something, you will figure out how,
if you know why,
you figure out how.
Okay, this is what one of the wisdoms from this is a blazes kicked out of Paradise, but his singular purpose in life is to misguide Adam.
Allah doesn't tell us how he believes God to Adam. Okay? He doesn't say that he managed to sneak into paradise, because that's not possible, actually. Okay, what,
what Allah tells us how he managed to get into the ear of Adam whispering to him, he figured out how, because he knew why his motivation was so strong. A motivation was so strong, that he found a way
that tells you that really, for us, if our motivation is strong to do something, we'll figure out how to do it. If you really care about your prayer, if you know why you're praying, and it's so critical for you
to pray, right, you will figure out how to do it, you will figure out a time and a place you will talk to your principal in school to get a prayer space, it doesn't matter, right? If y is strong enough, if you're strong enough and knowing why you're doing something, you'll eventually be able to figure out how to do it.
Now he says to Adam, okay, he says to Adam,
that I am your Lord has permitted you to approach this tree, lest you become angels or become Immortals. Okay? But before that, there's one other thing here what's really a very interesting tidbit in the, in the story of Adam and Eve, okay, I'll actually speak about this more tomorrow, this idea of nakedness. I'm gonna actually speak about this and address this tomorrow in sha Allah because this requires a little bit of time. Okay. I'll come back to this, I promise. Okay.
He says to Adam,
he says, Your Lord has forbidden you to approach this tree, lest you become angels or become Immortals. Okay? Here's a question for you.
He says, lest you become angels, or immortals, okay? is.
is Adam or Islam
in a way better than angels
What do you think people look like? Something that had happened recently?
In a way convince people to Islam.
Okay. Is it better than angels? So a lot of you're saying a little thing. Yes. You're saying no. Thank you tomorrow say equal.
Okay, that's actually a good
mattress. Actually. I do understand the question is Adam better than angels?
The question understood.
Yes. Yes. Okay. Yes. People who say yes.
Why do you say yes?
What happened recently? Adam is human.
Okay. Yes of Lula
angels to bow down to Adam
did not happen before just before this. The interest in the story.
Okay, that's it money. I'm really upset.
When Allah told Adam to learn the names and angels, and they said that we don't know, we only know what you taught us. While Adam learned that he was independent, and he learned them. Exactly. Adam learn the names. And Adam acquired knowledge. Right. Adam acquired knowledge. Yes. Angels. Yep. That could.
That that's the key difference. Yeah.
Let's see what Santa has to say. So no, go ahead, please.
Well, I am a like, it's kind of equal. Because if you look at it, angels are only traded to worship Allah. He has also kind of freewill and can convert people. So if you look at kind of both sides, it's really I guess, both equal, we're both good with things and not good with other things, I guess. Right. So there's, there's pros and cons to both, right? Yes. It was all by humans specifically. Generally, because there's bad humans. Right. And there's good humans. Talk about specifically Adam. Right, Adam? Melissa? Does that. Does that make sense? Do you want to maybe expand on your answer a little bit more? No. I'm saying is that like,
the angels are, they're just there to worship Allah. Created
in a way to like, show a lot of greatness.
Like thing of like,
not power, but like, you know, no, I can create this thing that can learn and he can understand and he can worship and he can.
That's what I think. Okay, cool. Very nice. I like that. Thank you very much. Hello, Dana. What do you have to say? Well, I think that angels are a little bit better than humans.
humans we get we do a little bit of bad decisions. Meanwhile, angels they don't like they don't
betray betrayed God or like not listen.
Right. Okay. Very good. Thank you for that. Let me ask somebody wins anything so far? Okay. I'm not
gonna pick a random person here or none. And when unmute both of you guys, what do you guys think?
Yeah, I think they are cuz like, they're like obedient.
Okay, I like that. Angels are obedient.
I think that angels are like, more closer to Allah.
Yeah. Angels are better than
closer to Allah. Okay. So I'm glad that there is a healthy difference of opinion here. Okay. You know, the reality is actually as follows.
Adam in Islam was actually better than the angels for the reason that Allah told the angels to bow to Adam.
And a lot told the angels that this creation of of mine, Adam is going to be his successor, a representative of me on the earth. halifa remember that a deeper meaning. He is going to represent me, not you.
You are with me.
In a paradise and you are Heavenly Creatures, but this accretion is going to represent me on Earth, acquired knowledge, the idea of human excellence, that's something the angels could have. Angels are like, we believe that whatever we learn, of course, is by the permission of Allah. But humans as a species, we are unique in the way we learn the way we acquire knowledge we read, we study we discuss, and all of this is a learning process for us. That doesn't happen before the angels. All right. So that actually makes ademola sounds better. That actually makes a good human, a good human better than an angel. You see that? Because we are now going to add this to this. We have the choice
between good and evil.
Right? We if we're doing something good, we chose that
the angels have no choice. They're going to be by default. Good. How can someone who has no choice, no temptation be better than the one who's fighting temptation to do what's right? Huh? Isn't that like, harder? Something's harder. It's better, right? The one who does it is better. So that is actually what we believe. We cannot ever worship a lot of angels worship alone. But that's not what's expected of us. We're expected not to be angels. Because angels are the angels. we're expected to learn from our mistakes, make mistakes and learn from them make Toba
are expected to make the right choice.
we're expected to learn and teach and grow, okay? And all of that together, when a person is doing that, that actually makes them better than an angel.
So otherwise, I'm actually was better than the angels. And in fact, he was living in paradise. So he didn't need to be immortal. He was already immortal in a way, right? He needs to be better than the angels. He was already better than the angels. But you see how the devil played tricks
on the mind of Adam,
again, the idea of flawed reasoning, you go back to that flawed reasoning, justifying something based on some on reasoning that isn't 100% logical. Now, either when I said, um, you would think would see through that, right, even like, Well, not really, I don't need this. But look at what Allah says, well, Kasama Houma de la Kumar, la mina, NASA, he, he swore to them that I am your wellwisher. I'm here for you. I'm trying to help you here. And I'm not trying to like, I'm not trying to,
you know, trip you or something. Okay. So this was the peer pressure he applied. And he applied this pressure pressure, okay. And continued to tell him this is what's going to happen. Eat this fruit, you'll be better. eat this food, you live forever. The thought of the sin in the mind of Adam was so much more stronger than the actual sin itself. That's part of the devil's deception. Now, the ISS for then lahoma
he cunningly seduced them. Somebody asked the question, What does cuttingly mean? Right? Can you tell me what the picture here on the screen is?
What is this picture?
Oh, well, uh, well, who said?
Hello. Okay, what else? Is there in the world?
A masivo. Yes.
bucket, a bucket, right. And what's the bucket connected to?
A big metal string.
So there's a rope, right?
Yes. Okay. This is how back in the day people are water.
That's how they got water back in the day, you would go to well, you would toss a bucket in the world. And
then the doctor would hit the water that's at the bottom of the world. And then you like jiggle your rope until your bucket turns, you know, horizontal and, and water starts to fill it up. And then you pull your bucket out. Now pulling up the bucket. Can you is it faster than throwing the bucket down? or slower?
Slow, slower, right? Because you have to pull if I didn't against gravity, and also it's full now right? Unless you're a buff
Even if you're off, you're still going to be slower, right?
Because it just goes down by itself. So that idea that pulling slowly of the rope of the bucket to bring the water out of the, the well, that in Arabic is what the word means from the word value, which is a watering bucket for the NA who maveo rules slowly, slowly he pulled away at them. The word della also means to dare somebody. He did Adam, he's like, Adam, I dare you to do it.
How many of you play truth or dare?
usually play Truth or Dare because you want to do the sub person to do something that they otherwise wouldn't do, right?
That's or no,
that is what, Adam the pure pressure applied to him by the devil.
He did him. He did it slowly. He gave him false reasonings. Things that don't make any sense. Until finally
what happened for them.
They tasted the trees fruit.
They fell for the trap whose day?
Adam and Eve okay, right. Not just Adam, not just Eve both of them fell into it. Okay, now what happened after the tasted it? We'll talk about that all tomorrow. Tomorrow. That's your last session for the story of Adam and Eve. So inshallah we'll talk more about that then. Insha Allah de la for ever coming out will end on time today.
Be the night out. Oh, okay. We will. Thank you very much. Word. I'll see you all.
Take care, Sarah. Dean.
Y'all take care bye. What after the Adam and Eve? Do we are we doing another session? Next week is another one.
All right, take care. Now I go. Oh, good. Shake my life.
