administrate on regimes for lever handle him Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. He early he was having him with a publisher he said he was in the
middle is any of the Holy robina attina for dunya Hassan, Hassan, another Solomonic
or God who Welcome to edges array from the lab Today we are covering the 14th Jews of the Quran.
This just begins with surah hedger number one, and it ends with Surah nahal at the end of Surah Surah. hedger is Surah, number 15, and Surah analisar number 16. So both of these tours in its entirety are covered by this chose.
Both of these are McCann revelations, which means that there are sutras that Allah Spano sent to the prophets of Salaam before he went from Mecca to Medina. And primarily the audience in it are people who don't believe in the oneness of Allah, that Allah should be the only one who was worthy of worship. That's one of the things that they don't accept, it speaks about, or those people also did not accept, or did not understand the concept of prophethood. Who are the prophets that allows Pablo sends? Why does he send prophets, you know, what is the the reasoning for that? Why not a superhuman person? Why not an angel be a prophet? And then they had a problem with the concept of being
resurrected after death, three main, you know, points of contention that people in Makkah had with the prophet SAW Salem, and the Quran, the Quran will address many of these, all three of these topics and many other related topics. Today, we are starting with Suda hedges. So the hedger speaks about, you know, the theme of surah. hedger is Allah is the Protector and the provider. He is the one who protects us and provides for us Let's start at the very beginning of the introduction with our old Villa Misha Tanya regime, le flam ra Tikka kitabi Tikka to kitabi per annum, whooping,
la flam rah. These are the verses of a clear book, The Quran, Obama de la Rocha photo loca and almost the mean.
Time will surely come, and those who are bent on denying the truth will wish that they had surrendered themselves to God. They will wish the people of moko will wish one day that they were Muslims. Those people who rejected the fate, a day will come that they will wish that they were also Muslims. They're homea kulu with Avatar, so leave them to eat and enjoy it. Well, you will hear him will Amel let them be beguiled by a vain hopes let them be, you know, disillusioned by by their thoughts for Sofia Allah moon for soon they will realize the truth. Mama, Huck Nam and Korea in Illa, Allah Hakata maloom we have never destroyed a township without a definitive decree, having
been issued a didn't happen just by circumstance or by randomness. It's a keytab Makita maloom they had a messenger, they had a message, and they were given time, martyrs bakuman omoton Angela, how am I stuck? You don't know people can forestall their doom, nor can they delay it. It is something that when it does come, it is inevitable. This is something last month I was talking about now, the people of the past people who receive messengers, and then they would reject the messenger and mock the messenger and reject the messenger. Allah says these people were destroyed and we spoken at length about this concept previously. We'll call the yuan Medina Zilla Ali, the crew inoculum is
noon. They say you to whom the reminder has been sent down. You are surely possessed. This is actually not the best transition the best transition would be a better transition would be a call. You will already know Zilla Allah His Vicar Hey you who thinks he's receiving revelation? In NACA lemma junoon. You are surely crazy. That's what they were saying. The Prophet says Allah. Again. Last month Allah is giving an example of history in history. When people will deny messengers they will be destroyed
and they mock the messengers they were destroyed Qureshi doing the same thing
lamattina will melodica decontaminant soldering why'd you not bring down the angels upon us if you are truthful? law says we only send down angels with to bring justice and then they will not be required.
Meaning the angels that Allah sends down as a response to a people's demands don't come with the message. They don't come with pamphlets and flyers, right? They don't come to give Dawa, they come to extract the divine justice and the punishment that people who have rejected the messengers
to extract their punishment upon them. So, what are you asking for? Quraysh? Are you asking for destruction here? Are you unaware of what has happened in the past, that we are we have sent people before messages to people before and whenever a messenger would come to them, they would mock their messenger.
Now you may not be here, they will not believe in that messenger, they will not accept his message. And that is how Allah sponsors advocate holla to not only and this is the example of the people of the past, that's how they work. But this is no new tale. What you are telling us is the same thing that you are, what you are doing is exactly what people in the past would do. This is actually something that's interesting, because there's a parallel here between what I wish and the atheist person the person who was you know, fully like in their mind there's no purpose to life just your Eat Drink enjoy yourself and whatnot. Right? It's a very interesting parallel because they would
also say well, oh, fatale him Baba Mina summer he for Luffy I will June even if a door had open from the heaven and they began sending fluid they would say like hollow in nama Sukira Uppsala, our eyes have been dazzled. And we are we have been bewitched, meaning like, the denial of miracles, for them was paramount to their worldview, game like this is just, you know, this is a magician, this guy is playing tricks on us. And it's the same thing if Allah Subhana Allah, if you mentioned the concept of prophet or to people who don't accept the existence of God, then for them, this is something that's a fable, and anything that's a miracle is also a fable. Okay. And if you were to point out
something, that is a miracle, they will try to explain it away. For example, the Quran is a miracle. I remember nines as in national azana decra. We're in La hoolahan alone, it is we will have sent down the reminder, and we will most certainly safeguarded This is a very beautiful thing. The Quran says it's a like I mentioned to you before a proof of falsifiability What does that mean? That means the Quran is saying, if you can disprove the Horus claim, you have disproven the entirety of the message, yes, if you can prove the Quran was not preserved, then you have falsified it. But look, we can show the Quran has been preserved, we can go back to the earliest manuscripts and find them
dated to the time of the Prophet Islam. And you have the oral tradition, the tradition of the Quran being relayed verbally from, you know, generation to generations, along with its documentation, unprecedented the way the Quran was preserved. And absolutely no, it leaves no doubt if you study the preservation of the book that this was preserved. So this is a proof of falsifiability or a test of falsifiability. And that that's something that people cannot falsify. kohan makes this as a prediction, because when the pseudo was revealed, the Quran was not preserved at that time, it was still being revealed. So on both ends, it proves to be true, it was a prediction, and it came true.
And it's a challenge that has not been met both things. So this is the thing, even if you are dimensioned, something that's as miraculous as this, as unprecedented as this is in history, because no other book has ever actually been preserved this way. No other historical text of Scripture. You mentioned that the person who doesn't want to believe or a person whose worldview is based on the fact that or based on the assumption that there is no God, then that person will try to explain this away with a whole bunch of mental gymnastics. Okay. And that is the crux of the matter. A messenger is sent by a prophet By Allah, he brings his revelation, he brings miracles, and then people they
reject him in various ways. The Qureshi people did that. People before police did that people today do that. And they're in his parallels and we can, you know, study them and take some heat from them. Okay. Last month, I mentioned that he is the provider, right? He is the provider. Again, the the theme of the surah is Allah Subhana. Allah is the one who provides Look at that. He says, well, Alda Madden is number 19. We've spread out the earth and set upon it for mountains and cause everything to grow and do
proportion. Okay, well um but now if you haven't kulish a mazoon How amazing is the creation creation of Allah the earth if you go and travel how, how beautiful that is it, it doesn't need any landscaping, right? It is in its way last month it takes care of its landscaping the way it is
comfy Hama Irish, we have provided there in a means of livelihood for you, and for all creatures whom you do not provide for, right? All types of creatures that live there survive, they thrive, and we don't have to be burdened by their survival. A lost part that provides for them creates the system for them to survive, for them to hunt and eat and then provides for them individually every single creature everything there is not a thing but it store houses are with us. What does this mean? illa indena has no meaning. It's this is with us like it's our responsibility, but we send it down each thing in an appropriate measure. Nobody's given the risk all together in one shot, your
whole lifetime of sustenance is provided to you all in one shot. That's not what happens Allah gives it according to a plan other than maloom Hey, this is how Allah provides for L he provides through the pollinating winds or out of center Ria Halawa,
fertilizing winds that's the transition better transition brasserie pollinating winds, okay, these winds, they pollinate the flowers, yes. And that causes fruits to grow. That is the process that happens. We don't even do we don't have to do anything. It takes place. Allah says this is his doing his system, his will that executed for Anza Lamanna sama, EMA and then he brings down from the sky water for you for drink a spinal Kumu oma and to level because they mean, and it's not you who could have stood up for yourselves. The storage of water even though we have tanks now that we store water and of course, but the water? it's stored in lakes and ponds in wells, freshwater, yes. All of these
things last part that has created systems for them to naturally store water. And How beautiful are they right? That allows us to live as a community as humans. He points to that, that he is the provider. He's the Sustainer or in the national nor he will meet on national very soon. We are the ones who bring life bring to life and we are the ones who cause that. And we are the inheritors of all things. Allah is the one who gives life and causes death, the creation and resurrection are both linked here. Allah mentions creation here. And I'm 25 Allah mentions resurrection is your Lord who will gather them. He is the old wise and all knowing, okay, now here is the, this is the
introduction, or Allah mentioning, he's the provider, this is something to show that he cares for us. He loves us. He is there to be he is there for us a lot. puntata right. Why wouldn't you want to worship? The one who cares for you so much? Why wouldn't you reciprocate the love for the one who loves you so deeply? These are examples of our most popular gifts. Then he goes to a historical narrative, he will mention the story of the creation of Adam, I remember.
I remember 26 we create a man out of dry clay from moulden, mud mud, and Jen recreated from a flaming fire. I number 28. When your Lord sets the angels I'm about to bring into being a man wrought from mud in salt soil in the hammer in must known, and then this is the one that you should, when I breathe into this man, my spirit, my rule, then you fall prostrate to this to him, right? The human being is a product of the body and the soul the body is from, you know, the body of Adam and Islam was for mud. Saul Solomon hammer, assume the soul was from Allah, Allah. And then every single soul after Allah created Adam, Allah spatola created this soul even before their body was made. All
people since Adam, their bodies are created to the natural process of being conceived. Yes, in the wombs of their mothers, but when they're conceived, the rule is now sent to become one with that person. And that when that becomes one with that person, that's when that fetus becomes alive. All right. The province has informed that that is the date number 120. In the term of the pregnancy of the woman, then Subhanallah we are called the ones we are from the earth, right and we are going to go back to the earth the idea from the earth is a last part Allah
has created our father from the earth. And then we will go back to the earth as a marine I, also we are from the earth in the sense that we eat from the earth, we are sustained by what goes on the earth so that our bodies are sustained by what's in the earth, but our souls are sustained by the revelation that Allah has sent. And that is the as we see, like the parallel here, Allah mentions the creation of Adam, and how he was created from Earth and his soul. But he also mentions that the Quran over here in Nanos, another crow in Allah who the half moon, and calls the ringer of the Quran, gibreel salam roof that has done a melodica tomorrow, right? The soul brings the Quran
because our soul is sustained by the Quran and spirituality, and our bodies are sustained by what's in the earth. Okay, the angels made such the except except Iblees, who was about an akuna massage and he refused. Okay, a lot as to why did you not prostrate? He said, because I am not going to do this. Oh Allah. I'm not. It's not befitting for me. Right? The arrogance to say Allah you chose wrong, you picked the wrong. pick the wrong one. You should have picked me I should have been the one that the angels should be doing says the two. Of course, that was something that was unacceptable. And last month, I said you are cursed and you hire you will have to leave.
He says My Lord give me respect until the Day of Resurrection. Allah said yes, you have despite I number 37 Yo man walked in my room I have number 38. You notice these are very small is very short, short, I had a very beautiful, rhythmic ayat on top of that game. Now she does something very interesting. Emily says something all our BB ma attorney was in another home filled out while olien home Jemaine Subhana Allah. He says, since you have let me go astray. It's your fault, my Lord that I went astray. It's your fault that I turned out this way or Allah, because of you. I have lost. So now I shall now in turn as if I'm going to harm you. I am going to make the path of evil alluring to
the children of Adam. Do you see this rotten attitude Elana, radical Muslim mafiosi, except your chosen service, you see the rotten attitude of Idris he is blaming Allah for his flaws. And that is the attitude of the devil. Blaming. Firstly, Allah for your problems, or blaming Allah for something that happens as if that is what Allah wants to do. That's as if he wants to hurt us. Allah is the Who's this is he's a sustainer. You want you loves and protects us and you get everything we have, he has given us Yes, from the breath that we take, the food we consume, the way it's in our bodies, to the environment that's around us. These big picture thing to small things, individuals have all
of it Allah has given us as a mercy. Yet, release. The attitude of blaming Allah for misfortune is like the original devil, as you've expressed many times the Quran says that life is the test. ups and downs of life are a test. And you know, you don't blame Allah, Allah for the ups and downs. Rather you say I trust Allah. Lo, why the Buddha Allah, Allah knows what he's doing. And he has a plan and he will bring me through. I have to trust him. Right in his wisdom. That's the attitude of the believer. That's the attitude of the believer. Okay, of course. The last one says, My servants look at this i I 42 you should have no power over my true servants.
You will have no power over my true servants. The devil has no authority or power over those who are truly devoted to Allah subhanaw taala the devil can whisper
but that's all and if you become strong spiritually, the devil's whisperings are not going to affect you. This is a very beautiful concept in the study. You can overcome the the temptations of the devil you can you're not subservient to the devil in any way. Okay.
Last one that describes the the righteous and how they will have beautiful what they attain in Jenna. In the macduffie unef agenda tomorrow June truly the God fearing should dwell amid gardens and fountains or the Hulu ha be Salam in Armenian. Enter in peace and security. What an amazing thing. There is no fear there is no grief, peace and security is happiness all around Zanna Murphy saluted him and we shall cleanse their hearts of all traces of ill will
One and they will be like Brethren, Allah pseudonym with the hobbit in seated on couches facing one another what an incredible scene from the Day of Judgment. What an incredible story, an incredible scene from Jenna, what an incredible gift. You have no ill will towards anybody.
Oh, amazing. If you ever experienced life this way, right? You were experiencing a piece of paradise, that's what you're experiencing. If you have no ill will towards ill will or any beef towards anybody, you are living a piece of paradise. May Allah give us these kinds of content parts, I mean, they will not be affected by any weirdness they're in, and they will never be made to leave. It's a permanent place. There's no fear of losing it. There is no fear of any type. It's pure bliss. That's what Paradise is pure bliss. Allah says never be a bad the neat annaleigh foodora who tell my sermons that I alone and the Forgiving and Merciful One, but also that my punishment is painful, and
it is something that's there. Okay.
What's interesting is in Surah, there's the story of Adam was mentioned before, right? In the story in Surah, number seven, in Surah number two, but in Surah, number seven, sort of out of Allah mentions where this thing took place the you know, the it took place in Jenna, right? The you know, let's actually compare and contrast because this is an important thing I wanted to just show you how sometimes the Quran repeats its its passages or repeats the story, but each time it repeats the story, there's something new that's being brought, this is important. A surah seven is 16 the Quran says all of awakened Isla akoto Daniela homesteader serata call Mr. P.
He's talking about where he's going to sit, I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path. In surah number 15 or 39 he says how he will do it. Right. He said I shall make the path of error seem alluring to them on the earth. And show misty that Jose Elan right here he says overdue upward another homestead automata theme, I'm going to come at them from their front, their back on the top from behind them everywhere. I'm going to surround them right he's talking about where he's going to attack the human in terms of bringing his evil here and seeing how he's going to do it. He's going to make the life of this world seem beautiful. He's going to make seem evil, attractive, he's going
to make temptations seem very, very strong. Yes. And very irresistible. So you see how the Quran mentioned stories, same story in different places, but each time there's a slightly little different flavor that it brings. And that's a deeper study, I hope you can inshallah, notice that when you study around yourself, you know, read your own translation. To make a note of the differences in the narrative. It's a very beautiful thing to note. I number 51 speaks about the story of Ibrahim al Islam and the guests, the guests of Ibrahim al Islam that came to tell him about that he has a son he's gonna have a son by the name of iacob so excuse me is hot and also to tell him I number 57 that
what is then your business or messengers is that we have been sent to a guilty people except the people except the household of lot all of whom shall be rescued except his wife, who we have estimated to be among those who will be left behind okay.
You see how nicely the the eye goes like Bowman was You mean the whole set of people are guilty except that exception the exception is like a subset Illa Allah loot they are not guilty they are to be saved the family of house a lot they are not guilty in but except the woman in the in the house the wife of lot. She is from the ones who is guilty and she will be punished as well. Right? They see like the it's a very nice style that the Quran lays out, you know, the general and then the exception from there. Okay, just something to you know, admire there. Okay, Lord Ali salam, of course, when Luke Alyssa lamb came, he was very distressed. We spoke we spoke about the story
beforehand. So number seven, is ready to stressed about what is going to happen. And so the angel said to him, No, we are bringing you the truth. And you should not be you know, in doubt about what we're about to say why you should do Oh Lord, this is 65 for us to really allocate time in a lane. Leave with your family sometime in the latter part of the night and walk behind them. What about what if admin Kumar had and let none of you look back one day tomorrow
Go where you are commanded, okay? Oh, Lord, I listen and this is what you do leave at night, because this is going to be a disaster as punishment. You follow you walk behind your family as like a protection for them, okay? Don't look back because this is a devastating punishment, and it's going to be unbearable, okay? And that is what Allah wants. It's going to be the decree is that they will be destroyed by the morning. Of course, the people they were in a state that this was a community of homosexuals, they were coming in a manner that was extremely disgraceful, okay. Extremely disgraceful. Lutheranism said don't disgrace me. Don't try to you know, abduct my guests.
Follow our London haka Allah, Allah mean, they said they will not forbid you to extend hospitality to strangers. Right. This was an interesting statement then run haka. ornela. I mean, like, this could carry a bunch of meanings, a couple of interpretations. But this is the idea that like, didn't we tell you to, like just essentially, mind your business and not host people? You know, don't you know, stay in your lane in a way right. He's continues to tell us and I'm continue to invite them at a this these are my daughters, either women of the city, they are pure for you if you were to engage in intimacy, but of course they were lamb rocker in the home. Luffy sokrati him Yama Hoon is number
72 they wander on in their wild intoxication. This is what Allah describes the state as being they were like intoxicated, the desires was so intense, that they were wildly intoxicated, you see how the shape on said in the very beginning of the surah, right, or the passage about a plan he said, I will make their desires pleasing to them, you see, and this is an example of that, that these people were so consumed by what they wanted to do, that they
could not all rationality left in minds, all dignity had left them gave and then at that point, the blast overtook them at sunrise and the punishment was so severe that the town was turned upside down which Allah Allah Safina
and then they were rained upon them or stones were rained. Okay, then there is this horrible acre as how will acre other people have schreib the people of the wood This is how acre are the people who would worship trees, they would think that the trees have spirits that's where you know the knock on wood. Perhaps that's where that comes from, because you think that the trees have some spirits and there's some divinity ascribed to them. But of course it's these are, these are nonsensical things to believe.
They were wrongdoers almost fantasize we took we took them to task Okay. Then us herbal hygiene. That's what the name of the surah comes. The people of hedger also rejected the messengers Who are the people of hedger. This is the mood right, this is someone somebody for whom
solea solea salam
was sent to the mood and that is the people that are referenced here. An interesting thing to notice here about the Quran the Quran is mentioning the story of the people of the moon and the people of add, Prophet who then prophet SAW that in you know, in more detail than others in the sense of there is it is lost fundamentally mentioned the name of the people write the name of the people is
the name of the Prophet sent to them is hood, the name of the people is the mood the people the Prophet is solid. Okay, Allah also also mentions the place, the place where our ad libbed is off, and that's coming later in a surah number 46 the place where some would live is hedger as hobble hedger. So, the tribe has mentioned the places mentioned the Prophet has mentioned this is actually not what a lot sponsor does, for example, about lupulus Ramadan last part, as I mentioned that he was sent to Sodom and Gomorrah, okay. Because that part was well known in the Bible, right biblically that was well known. So the audience who would listen to it they will know what this is
talking about. But these prophets and these people were unknown to the Christian and Jewish community. So last month is providing some more details that even though the audience is primarily mucking about, of course, the Quran is revealed for all peoples and of all times, and this is an interesting observation that you should make how Allah is giving more details when those details are necessary. Of course, the people have hedger, the mood disobeyed and rejected
get them. more sad in the rejected are messengers you as I mentioned,
Before last time, they rejected one prophet as as if they rejected all prophets. And these were people who were extremely powerful carved out dwellings in the mountains lived in security, right? They they lived in such with such safety and security, the houses were built in mountains. But Allah, Allah says that a blast overcook them, say ha, a shriek. You can even say all overtook them, they died because of it. So the earthquake couldn't do anything to them because they lived in mountains, they thought so. The shriek blast was so deafening, it took their souls and that was a punishment that was sent by my other man whom McHenry accesible what was the value what they
acquired? This is a very interesting question. What is the value of what you accumulate and what you hoard at the end of the day, you will leave it behind. He will leave it behind. And when you meet your Lord, You are going to be by yourself when the mana for Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, you are going to come by yourself to your Lord just like you were born by yourself individually as an individual. And that's the thing for us to consider. What is it that we are leaving behind the theme you see here? Allah is a provider is a protector he provides for all
even those who were, you know, obstinate enemies, but he's a protector of the believers is a protector of the believers in this world. The believers like the prophets and their followers, and then he is a protector of the believers on the Day of Judgment, ultimately, okay. And he is the one who will hold accountable those who rejected the prophets and rejected a laws signs that are all around science like well, Mahatma sumati will adamawa mamajuana Houma, Illa bill, aka 85 we've created the heavens and the earth and all that is between in accordance with the requirements of truth and wisdom, surely the hour is coming. So overlook their faults with gracious forgiveness,
phosphorus Sahaja. mean how amazing is this? Allah is telling the prophet to be gracious and overlooking the faults May Allah give us this kind of character, I mean, in a sense,
the problem is told, the judgment is coming on the Day of Judgment, oh Prophet, your job is not to hold them accountable. Your job is to convey the message. Your Lord is the one who will hold them accountable, you will prophet have been given the seven off to recited verses that sortal Fatiha. And the great put on this to Surah began if you remember by mentioning the greatest of the Quran, as the Quran will be preserved but Allah is part of the Annenberg nine, and it ends or it towards the concluding part also comes back and speaks about the greatness of the poor. And what does the greatest power on an individual level? What should it do to our souls? It should give us
contentment, it should give us peace and serenity. Laughter Medina dama dama de nine acre illa matana vs. Wasserman home, Do not strain your eyes towards the worldly benefits we have bestowed on some of them. Okay? Don't strain your eyes, you know, be content with what you have, be ambitious, try to get you know, in try to accumulate the good in life. No one is
telling you not to do that. But don't become
don't become distressed. If someone has more than you walk, you know, be content with what you have. And that is that peace and serenity. That is that Islam will give you a walkthrough Jenna hacker movement in a lawyer winger mercy to the believers. The Quran says something very interesting here.
Well, according to Allah I number 97. Hmm.
I number 97 is we indeed know that your heart is distressed at what they say.
The process was hurt by what the people would say to her. Right? This was not easy for him to hear statements such as this one, the one in the very beginning of the surah in a collage known Hey, you Who are you thinking you're receiving revelation, you're crazy. This was hard for him, because he was the most upright, the most moral, the best of that of that city of the world, but particularly in that city. At that time. He was the best person even before he became a prophet even before he received revelation. So for him to hear going from being so loved and so admired, to all of a sudden be vilified. That is hard. It'll be hard for anybody. So Allah says, We understood we know it hurts
you, oh, Prophet, but what should you do? Keep going for some behind the topic. glorify your Lord, with his praise. Praise Him, glorify Him. Welcome, Minister. God, prostrate yourself better.
Translation be with those who pass rate, meaning prostrate. This is an expression for pray, right? Make sense, but be with those who do so I eat, keep that as your company, keep that good company pray together that's going to bring you peace that's gonna allow you to give that will give you the strength to keep going forward. And that is going to give you the strength and courage to bear the insults and the difficult statements these people are saying that are hurtful. This is going to be your fuel, your remembrance of Allah and your prayer and your prayer particularly with those around you and keep doing that as well. I will drop Baca keep this up until Hata tickle your pain until
certainty comes to you what is a certainty depth on the screen here is death. It has actually two meaning cut didactically attain, keep going until you're certain like you see the result with your eyes, you're certain in the promise of a lot, right? And now you are motivated to continue but also keep going until the certain thing comes to you which is death because death is a certainty and that's what the Quran labels it as. So that is Surah Al hedger, then we go to Surah. Now what's very nice, you know,
I guess it's a nice segue here had taken your pin until what certain comes to you. Allah says what certain is coming at I'm gonna love the decree of Allah is coming. So do not hastin it for that the Stardew the Day of Judgment is going to come. The persons that will arrive at its time. Don't hastin it What does that mean? Don't demand punishment from a lot of people have flourish. It's unbecoming. It's unbecoming and it's counterproductive isn't do anything because when the punishment comes, you can do anything at that point. Take the opportunity, the privilege of being alive and well and having agency right now to figure out your purpose in life. So Hannah, what am I used to mostly
called La sparkler is above he is exalted from what they associated with him. They think that he this these statements are inappropriate to be said about Allah and lots of others says he is exalted above him. Okay. So
what is Surah Surah nahal is about the honeybee. That's what it's named after the honeybee. So we'll see what the honeybee is about in a bit. But what is the surah it talks about Allah's blessings, the absolutely incredible amount of blessings Allah has given us and how it shows Allah's love for us, his care for us how he truly is our provider, our sustainer he truly was best for us and wasn't what we should take from his blessings is we become grateful it should make us grateful it should make us wanting to love our Lord that's the engine that should drive a believer love for Allah and gratitude for Allah Allah okay holla for somehow it will have the will Huck die Moshe Kuhn, he has created the
heavens and the earth for our true purpose, this is a beautiful statement, right? It is not out of you know random chance that the cosmos came into existence, this order receipt right we see order everywhere you look from the you know, the molecular level, right? The actual even finer than the molecular level, all the way to the greatest, most macro version view of the universe. You see absolutely incredible order, unlike unlike anything else, okay.
It's that's a purpose. Allah has done this by design intentionally. It's not all random. It's all of this order cannot just be by chance. That's what let's say. And if you think it is by chance that Allah emoticon is exalted about above these kinds of inappropriate statements, hello, call in Santa may not fall look at our origins create man out of a drop of sperm. Man here, of course in sand is for both men and women. Okay. The transition says Matt Insan. His man and woman both humans created humans from a drop of sperm for either work of semen we've been, and yet he shows himself to be openly contentious. He is loud, Matt. He has a big mouth. He likes to hear his voice. He says things
that are inappropriate. He makes claims that are fallacious. But just look at your origins men. Two words from a drop of sperm. Hello, Colin Solomon nada. Shouldn't that create a little bit of humility in the human being? Shouldn't that humble us a little bit to recognize look at where we came from. Let us recognize
Is that if you came from such humble origins, right? How can we lose humility as we gain strength? Right? That's a very, that's not a correct way of going about doing things, that's actually a very bad thing to do. Well, an AMA halaqa has created cattle for you, from the cattle, you dry food, clothing and numerous other benefits, okay? And you are the cattle looks pleasant when you bring them home in the evenings, or you take them out to pasture. Now, this is something maybe we can relate to, because we don't have cattle that we bring it home and then leave.
Right. But that what last month was saying here is something that this deep, he's created, things in the world that we use for food and survival, look comfy, had different food and clothing, that's our basic necessities, okay. But also there is beauty, we are creatures who desire beauty, we love beauty.
And Allah has created that in us, cultivated that in us, and allowed us to express that in various ways. Like the prophet in the La jameela new hibel Jamaat, Allah is beautiful, and he loves beauty. And this is an example this so this idea is a is an example of that. I number seven, what that means a follow up on these
animals Allah has created for you, they carry your loads to places that you otherwise would not have reached without great hardship, unless otherwise without great hardship. Your Lord is compassionate and merciful law has made your tasks easier by allowing you to make these by making these animals subservient to you. And they can do jobs for you. While high level bees are behind horses and mules will hmil donkeys, the terkemuka you may write them was Xena. And then you can be put they can put on show write a horse, even today is extremely expensive. And you know people own horses, expensive horses, it's been a fortune on them.

This is the stuff you see. Yes, there's other things you don't even know. And how true is that? Even today? We are continuously finding new types of fish in the depths of the ocean under the Twilight Zone. We're still discovering the caves around the earth we still don't know the most of the ocean is explored. Most of the Pacific is unexplored. How and how in immense is Allah's creation just on the earth, just on our little planet? All right, welcome.
He's pointing out his his his his magnificence and his blessings, okay.
He is the one who the straight path leads to God. And there are ways which deviate from the right course Allah not only creates our for us, He has created in us this, this desire to find purpose. And that purpose leads back to God, that morality that fit that moral compass within us. He's created that us for us as well. And that's different for us compared to animals. He is the one who has sent down the sky water from the sky rain, and we drink from that, and it causes trees to grow. That's pasture and that causes us to have the food that we eat, the fruits that we enjoy the luxuries that we have. Surely these are Signs for people who reflect that effect Karun and then
there is a law has put in the system Sahaja malayala wanna have a system that is subservient to you? Our lives revolve around this. Okay.
The alternation of the night and the day the sun and the moon are our times our calendars, everything work hours, everything is determined in the system. No one in just like came up with an allowance pump. I was the one who made it. And we found ourselves in the middle of it. It's for us. One new job massamba Embry, the stars are subservient to you by a man was I mean, these things are look random. You can study them, and you can utilize them. You can use them for guidance, you can study them and to figure out the origins of the universe in the viatical I attend the Omi afternoon in this our science for people of understanding.
You have to be a person who thinks reflect you have to be a person who uses their mind
akal understanding you have to be a person who not just is observing the universe and saying, oh, Pretty cool, right? Well, my other rockenfeller are the most elephant awana on the earth, He has fashion for you objects of various hues, the diversity of his creation,
the diversity of creation, in that there's a cyber people that karoon who pay heed, you have to pay heed to this you have to connect the dots back to Allah subhanaw taala. He is the one who has enabled us to sail on the ocean on the open waters. He's able so we can catch fish, and we get either Lachman, buddy and by the way last monocles fish Lachman Perry of fresh seafood, and if you eat seafood us cents, it's got this element of freshness in it. And you take out from it, ornaments that you were right, pearls, valuable items, we wear them, we sell them their commodities, and you see the ships that sail mawashi Rafi like they're cleaving through it they're like a little mini
mountain and how large are the tankers Subhanallah that sail the oceans? The thumped a woman formula he so he may seek His bounties all trade in the world. What does it go through on the ships? Right? That's how people make money. That's how economies run. That's how we have the good stuff that we had. That's why you can go on amazon.ca and order something and it will come to your house right because it was made in China shipped through across the world by the tunnel full kamasi Rafi but it helped a woman fidelity. So you may seek His bounty these ships are bringing these to us, Allah Allah come to schroon perhaps you will feel grateful that Allah has made the system for you to
thrive in. So Pamela these are signs last tell us pointing this out to us. Maybe we can be thankful to him. I number 17.
I number 17. Actually, number 16. Before that I met with in Nigeria.
Last month I send up landmarks and by stars people set their course I told you about stars right? But this is actually an interesting I have been nudging me home. Yeah, after doing it speaks about the importance of using Allah's creation to calculate Yes, I'm in Nigeria home. Yeah, dude, people use the equation of Allah to do the calculations to figure out a course. And this is actually what some scholars, even older scholars like Romney and others who are, you know, about six, seven or 700 years ago they lived, they use this as evidence that, you know, you can calculate the times for the most the calendar, where you can calculate that it's an interesting position that they base based on
this is number 16. We know Jimmy whom you have done, and other, you know, types of evidences that you can find I have a my Yahoo common law. Look, here's the question. After Allah points out all these beautiful things, he says, is he who creates like the one who does not create? Are they the same? alpha to the Quran? Will you not think, will you not ponder? Would you not pay attention and take some heat? How can someone who was created like a man be a be God? How can he be God? How can an idol be God? How can all of this be without a god?
I fell out of the garden, will you not pay attention? The way that I do now I'm at a law healer. If you try to count God's blessings, you will never be able to number them. The idea is they're so overpowering. So, so numerous, that we will be like, we won't be able to fully appreciate and fully enumerate. You can list them out if you wanted to list them out, maybe you can list them all out, or do you fully appreciate and fully understand how valuable that is? Do you really value understand the value of us being able to take a breath? Yes,
I do. You really can we really fully grasp it? Right? But that's also how you're not going to be able to grasp and this is a basic example, he would underline it's too many in the law of affordable Rahim. The point is, we have to understand Allah is most forgiving and merciful. And re intern should be thankful for Allah for Allah blessings for his favors for his grace. Okay. I have number 24 speaks about a contrast and attitude between the believers and the disbelievers. Okay. The disbelievers when they hear these whether predella Hamada Angela bukem call ourself to your own body, when they are asked, What has your Lord, what is it that your Lord has sent down? They say
fables of the ancient stories of the ancient these are those tales people used to tell them the past Adam and this and that. But that is what they say. That's how they that's the mental gymnastics they use.
To convince themselves that they're on the right path, and it's okay to just enjoy life and forget about any more bigger purpose. Yummy. Oh, Zara, home Kameelah. These words affect other people. Yes, of course, but they will bear their burdens. Hmm.
They will bear the burden of their and in gratitude and their disbelief, but also they will bear the burdens. Women Oh, Zadie lady nailed it. Nailed it. No, no humble lady, as well as some of the burdens of those whom they led astray without knowledge. Allahu Akbar. What does this mean? It doesn't mean that the ones who were led astray by these people statements, these people say these things, they're influential, they're powerful. They explain they brush away the concept of God. Right, if you study, you know, I had a friend who did his PhD in physics, he said, everybody around me is very good friend of mine. hamdallah is like everybody around me as an atheist. They're, they
think it's a joke that I praise Allah.
That's how curriculum is. In our society. It's meant to completely discredit and remove the concept of God taught totally, totally remove it and disregarded and turn it into fables. Now when society, the leaders, the intelligent people, society, the thought leaders, the researchers, etc, when they say these things, it's going to seep down to the lower levels undergrad, miskeen is going to also swallow this hook, line and sinker. Right thinking is very smart. Okay? becoming misguided. Okay. Now, here's the thing that Wada says everybody carries their own burdens, you cannot blame another person, hey, it's your fault. That's because of you I got misguided, it's not gonna work on the Day
of Judgment. Everybody is accountable for their own individual choices. But the one who's saying this, and it has a platform and has some audience, if they misguide others, they are going to take a piece of the disgrace a piece of the sin, and it'll be added to their sins and to their account. I'll ask my as your own, well, what an evil finger is that they will be burned by.
Right? This isn't very, very bad. I remember, as I showed you a few times, I had an answer number 14, yesterday, when shavon said Don't blame me blame yourselves, right? And so number seven, the people who are weak will say to the people who are powerful Hey, be followed you can you save us now? Right? And you can't. You can't blame somebody for your Miss guidance. Your ms guidance is your choice. But if you were the one who was Miss guiding people, you're also taking a portion of their sins. so be cautious of what you're saying. Be mindful that those chickens will come home to roost. So this is what Allah says about the attitude of the disbelievers. Contrast that number 30 with the
attitude of the believers, loc de la de La Nina taco.
Oh, by the way, these people of course, when they are carrying these sins and these burdens, right, they're going to be humiliated sorry, before I get to that they will be disgraced on the Day of Judgment, and their end result will be because they were arrogant before because they were they they rejected for the hoodoo Ababa, Johanna holiday Nafisa, they will be told to enter the gates of hell to abide there and forever. All right, how evil is the end of those who are arrogant, who thought they knew better than God who can you know, brush off the concept of God completely. Latina Latina Takuma De Anza la buco Hira compare and contrast. When those who fear God are asked what has your
Lord send down there reply is hiren goodness, if there's an Arabic little subtlety here. Before I point that out, I'm going to again, show this to you one more time just to drive home the point. See, the sentences are the same way that Phaedra home mother and a lot of buco when they are asked what is the send down to you? When they are asked I either this time the believers are asked, What did your Lord send down to you? Right? That contrast between the two is presented here? The previous people say the disbelievers the arrogant ones, say a saltiel avoiding stories, fables, but the believers Say hi, Iran is an interesting thing. It's monsoon in Arabic here, not how you run, it's
how you run and perhaps there's some explanations for this. You know, and I don't claim to you know, speak on behalf of a lot but the linguistic possibilities are a few for why it is higher than the wisdom behind that is one law one I'm again Allah knows the full wisdom but the one of the ways
That could be extrapolated is the hierarchy is showing the attitude of the person along with the statement. Okay? And what is the attitude, they believe that everything about the revelation, everything that the dean is His goodness, and all that brings his goodness and all that bring brings his blessings. That's the attitude the highlight on it being monsoon this way is showing the attitude of the believer that they believe that everything that's good
is traceable or going back to our last panel.
That's the attitude of gratitude. That's the belief. Right? All goodness, they say Allah is the one who has given us all of this goodness. And when they have this beautiful attitude, Lil larina Asano we had the dunya has and by the way, of course there's more wisdom that I don't know. And Allah knows fully the wisdom of why he chooses his words the way he chooses them. larina
Harvey hit dunya has the reward of those who do good works in this world is Hassan.
Goodness, in this world, they will have good in this world. But in the next world while the dad will ask irati Hi Ron, but the abode of the hereafter will be even better.

I have a number of other talks about
Allah has sent to every mess every nation a messenger welcome partner equally omoton Rasul Allah, every oma every community who has ever lived, every nation has ever lived, Allah send them a messenger and the message of all the messengers is the same, and they are with the law which they will call hood, worship god alone and shun the evil one shun evil shun the devil only worship Allah. But of course people are people from inhuman had Allah then there are among them some whom God guided, and among them some others who became deserving of ruin.
Their choice they chose misguidance and has it was deserving for them to be misguided for sorrowful also traveled the earth and see the end of those who rejected the messengers, okay. Allah squanto says that this is Allah's choice, he chooses who he guides, we're blessed Allah chose us chose the guidance, though oh Prophet, you may be eager to guide them God does not guide those whom he lets go astray, Leia de may you will, because of their refusal to give a positive response they chose what they chose. And thus, Allah will not guide them. This is the thing, we can only convey the message. At the end. Allah is the one who puts the desire in the person's heart and puts you know, he's the
one who lets the person choose. And they are the ones and because of their choice, they're the ones who pick my luminosity and they will have no supporters. Okay, I a number. I number 56. I'll skip to that I quickly to point out something about
Shell Kaushik doesn't make any sense worshiping anything besides Allah, they appoint a share of what We have provided for them to false gods they know nothing of initial you shall surely be questioned about the lies you've been fabricating. they assign daughters to God, glory to Him, He has, you know, no daughters, no sons, this themselves say we want sons, but we want daughters for God. Here is the stinking attitude of these people. When the birth of a girl is announced to any of them, his face darkens and is filled with gloom. He in shame he hides himself away from his people, because of the bad news he has been given. That's what he thinks, right? I use a coup Allah Hoon, and I'm
Rob should he keeper and feel disgraced or bury her in dust? how evil is how ill is it that the judge what an evil attitude the people this is the people of Arabia, if they had towards their daughters, and you know, they will consider them to be a disgrace. So parallel in Islam, they're told daughters are a blessing. The prophets are two person has two daughters, and he raises them well, and he treats them well. And they are good, good kids, and they're believing kids, this person will enter Paradise. Right? Did his daughters become a reason for him to enter Paradise, Allahu Akbar is such a blessing. They literally you know that Allah has given you a opportunity to earn
paradise just by raising your kids just by raising your daughters, how amazing is lambs way? And how evil is the way of God Leah? And today? Do you see this attitude, unfortunately, in Muslim communities, which is a rotten attitude, the rotten attitude of the people who were disbelievers, right, this attribute of evil applies to those who do not believe in the hereafter while to God applies the highest example. And he is the mighty and the y's gave
a last one that says something very interesting is 61. They if God were to take people to task for their wrongdoing, he would not even leave one creature on earth.
people's mistakes immediately judgment was levied out upon them, no one will be left alive, everyone will be punished and would perish. But what I can you know whom Allah gives them a chance, you know, as a Muslim until an appointed time, right? So we can make mistakes we can reform we can be better and our judgment happens after our life is done. When your life's work is complete. That is when your judgment takes place. And your life's work is complete when you are about to die. When the time comes, they cannot delete delete, it will follow the funeral Sara Sara is not an hour.

life. That is a instance of how that's a sample of how he would bring us back to life after we have passed away. Cattle in the local village army, the hybrid a great sign a lesson in the cattle, right? Look at this. It's almost like a paradox in the contents of their belly from between the dung and blood. We give you pure milk to drink pleasant for those who drink it. Right. If Allah wants to bring something pure, he brings it about but he brings this pure thing for us in from the middle of all sorts of things that you will consider disgusting and nasty, but a loss mother brings it out and it is full of nutrition and benefit for us. Lebanon, Holly son, sir even shared even pleasant, pure
