Alright, let's throw that in front of him.
Let me ask you guys a couple of quick questions. Ready? And I'm gonna actually allow you to unmute yourself to give me the answers. You guys ready for that?
Yes or no? All right, perfect. Let me go to the participant lists, mute all allow participants to unmute themselves. Okay. Let's get with a quick
quick warm up round.
Warm up, brown.
So here's how it's gonna work. All right, you can type the answer or see the answer. Okay, when they type it or say it, and I am going to give you like a, like, I'm gonna give a countdown. Okay. And based on my countdown, I'll tell you what you have to say.
All right, okay.
True or false questions? Ready?
Yeah, I don't need you to say right now I think I know the angels existed.
created by Allah. before Adam. True or false? True.
Those who say true, why do you say true? Anything? They tell me the answer why there's a true
because the angels. They asked why God created humans. So obviously they were there before. Excellent. This is. Yeah. How's it going? I'm tired.
But thank you, great answer. The angels in the ayah. From the Quran. The angels asked Allah, tala. They were like, hey, Apollo, aka geography ha, minute, Goofy, how YSP? Could deema Are you going to play someone on earth? Who is winter pause corruption on the land and
is going to shed blood. So clearly the angels were in existence before Adam and Islam was created. Okay.
The Earth was created by Allah
before Adam and so that was created True or false? True. True, true.
True. True. True as well. Okay.
All right. Next question.
See, like miraculously
by a lot
True or false? True. What do you mean by miraculously? So?
Very good question. So miraculously, I mean, what I mean by that is, it wasn't a natural process of how human beings are born.
ie, not a natural process. Okay. All right. Very good. That is actually true. That is correct. And that's part that created Adam in his, you know, as, as an adult, and he didn't create him as a baby and he grew into an adult, he was made into an adult, okay.
Adam is around was greeted by Allah, from a handful of dirt that he took from the entire Earth Torvalds
That was also true.
That was also true. This is something there's a Hadith of the Prophet as also known. I shared that with you last time.
The Hadith of the Prophet which says that
he created Adam from dirt, Minh double.in Kabbalah, Harmon jemena allowed a handful of dirt that he grabbed from the entirety of the earth, and that was the explanation of the diversity of the humans. Okay. Allah created the soul of Adam, before his body. true false,
saying we ever have people saying false? why some people will say true Why? Why would you say true?
So let's see we have Angela saying true. Yeah. What would you say that?
Can I say what's false? Well, I think you said it's true, right? Why would you say it's true? I didn't say it's true or false. Oh, you said false. Okay. My bad. All right. The answer is false. Love me this body. And then he blew the soul into the body of Adam. And that's when he became a human. Okay, so
Allah created our souls before our bodies, true or false?
Okay, how many people say how many of you will say false?
We have one.
A few people before? Okay. Why would you say false?
Because the fetus was made before the soul.
The fetus already before the soul. Okay. All right. Any other
All right, I want to ask somebody else. Why do you say true?
Who would like to answer?
Why is it true this question?
fetuses Megan, so let's put in it. Okay. I like that. My well done. That's a good answer. But then do you remember I showed you this is from the Quran? Remember, this?
is about our souls was made before our bodies were made. Okay. In fact, our souls, all of our souls, were in existence before our bodies were in existence. Then when we are conceived in the wombs of our mothers. Hmm. That is when our soul is blown into our bodies and has we become humans? Remember that people? Yeah. All right. Very good. Okay.
So that actually allocated or sold for what is that is actually true. Great job. All right. Last question. Okay.
on the day of judgment?
We will be resurrected in,
in spirit meaning like, even in our schools will be resurrected. Not our bodies
would be all like,
true or false.
Walsh was a bit was a bunch of people saying to the people who say true.
Somebody told me why do you say it's true?
Sorry, I'm not.
Alright, I'm gonna ask everybody to mute themselves for a minute. And then the one who says true respond to me. Okay, but unmuting yourself. All right, go ahead.
Somebody who says true?
They don't know. Okay, maybe somebody who's saying false.
Would you like to explain? Yeah, go ahead.
Oh, because when Junior judgment happens, our bodies come out of the grave. And then our souls when we die, our souls go up to the sky. And when judgment comes, your soul goes back into your body. Hmm, perfect. So that is awesome. Zach LFM. Thank you very much this is actually false. The correct answer is false. The answer is our bodies are going to be recreated by Allah on the day of judgment because they would have rotted away. It's been hundreds of years perhaps, right. But our soul which has been which was taken and goes to a place called the lien, or the place called Sujin. That place that's where the souls are held until the day of judgment. And thus on the day of judgment when the
body is recreated the souls are rejoined the bodies and that is we will be there in body and spirit, both of us like it'll be either no fool suzu we just like the ISS, the soul and the body is joined together. Okay, so that's a quick rapid fire warmer Brown. Mashallah, you
Awesome. Now, Adam on Islam we have done. Have you spoken about this before that he was created by Allah, Allah without a father or a mother? Isn't that right?
And he is an exceptional creation in this regard that he was
create for us use created but less popular without a parent. And
all of us have parents, correct? Yes. Now
how do we explain?
Or how do we understand that Adam alayhis salam could be brought into existence without a parent? How do we understand this? Okay. Well, let's take a look at a couple of things here.
Let me let me if people disagree that he knew he didn't have a parent, like, people disagree with that, or?
No, okay, great. So look at this, how do we understand this topic or this concept? logically, this is an important consideration now.
An excellent designer, he wouldn't be first if he had parents, okay. Now, here is a very interesting passage, I'm going to read this to you. This is from a person who this is an article that written by somebody, and it's a good article, I'm going to read a part of it to you, I'm going to add somebody else to read with me as well afterwards. Okay. But I read the first part, right here, here, here is how it goes. Modern cosmology asks us to believe that the entire universe with its all its complexities, and all its many physical laws, and constants, in outrageously perfect harmony, literally come out of nothing. The Big Bang? How many of you heard have heard the Big Bang?
So no, sir.
I'm sorry, what?
Is it TV show about it, isn't it? There's a TV show as well, not the TV show, I'm referring to the theory in physics there.
Okay, so the Big Bang, not the TV show, of course, is a theory in physics. And this is the dominant theory that all of
everything in existence came from one incident, it started from one incident called the Big Bang. And that big bang, then
resulted in the molecules and atoms and all the other stuff that's there, drifting apart, drifting apart. And as it drifted apart, it will collide and will become into different planets and different objects. And then as it kept drifting apart, things would collide into it, then we get bigger or get smaller, and then through gravity, it will start having a gravitational pole, and then you will have stuff orbiting it, all of that. And I mean, I'm being very, very loose with my explanation of it. But if that is the theory of the Big Bang, and actually has quite a bit of a precedence in physics, like they say, you know, like, if you observe how the stars are, it seems like everything is moving
far away, like everything is just moving away. So if you were if everything is moving away, then there must have been a point where everything is together in one, right? Yes or no. And that together in one, however, many billions of years ago, that was was the big bang. So that's the summary of what the theory is. That's what we're taught in school.
If you have a question, I appreciate you raising your hand. And if you have question, please raise your hand. And then say what you have to say tratando. Manuel, go ahead. So I've heard the opinion that Islam doesn't necessarily disagree with the Big Bang, and that there's an A and talks about, like, the skies on the earth, or I'm not sure but like, like a big explosion or a big merge happening. Yeah, so I'm not an excellent point. But what I'd like to show you that if we actually have
a theory that's in physics, or in chemistry or biology, like we don't have an opinion on it islamically if it doesn't contradict with our with our understanding from the Quran, and from the authentic hadith, You with me?
So, the idea of the Big Bang doesn't actually contradict with our theology, okay. It is actually quite possible that
is how Allah, Allah made the earth however, I would disagree with somebody who proposes that the Quran spoke about that. And I would disagree he will be convenient for us to frame the ayah as such, there is the I number 30 lm er en la Vina cafaro Anna sumati will Alba Canada Ratan Tata Kona Houma do the those who deny the truth not see that the heavens and the earth heavens here refers to the skies and the earth were joined together and then we split them asunder me basically they were all mishmash together and then we split them well Jana minima equilibria in height and we made every living thing out of water
well they're not still believe of Allah you know, okay. So this is the thing but we how do we understand what an Arabic word means in the Quran?
How do we understand what this word Rukh Khan means? Join Fatah Houma? What does this word mean? Any ideas? How do we this is a theoretical question. But anyway, you know how we the words in Arabic of the Quran? How do we know what they mean?
Anybody has their hand almost hidden? Has 100 do you have? Do you have an answer that meridian or somebody else has an answer to that?
Arabic language and the root of the word. Thank you. Marvelous. Very nice.
So what Arabic language specifically Are you referring to Morocco?
The Arabic language, the transition? context of the phrase kit of seeds. Okay, very good.
Here is I'll tell you the answer Google Translate No.
Definitely not Google Translate. Okay. I'll tell you what, the
Arabic of the time the profits or loss on them that is the Arabic that the Quran was revealed in correct? Yes or no?
Do you agree with that? The Arabic of the time of the Prophet is what the parameters revealed in
us, okay. So to understand what is a word intending? Or what is the intention behind the word in the Quran? We have to ask, What did the people at the time of the Prophet understand that were to be?
And if he asked that question about this ayah is the understanding that we get from them is that they are talking about the idea of the sky raining, or, you know, the idea of rain from the clouds not to have the idea of a big bang game. Now, that's not to say that it's not possible or it's not true, or the theory is this or that. It's not even to say that a love mentions it or not mentions it. That's not none of those are you can't actually comment on any of that. All we can say for a fact is that theory doesn't contradict with our understanding of the Quran. And number two, the Quran explicitly does not speak about it. Okay? We have to be careful we cannot add things or read
into Quran things that we would like the Quran to have, you will you should actually let the Quran speak for itself. That answer your question more.
Perfect. mohideen was your question.
You would not like not, you would not agree with the fact that
you just said that human x few seconds ago. What the What about?
What about the TV about apes development into humans? Yeah, we'll come to that. We'll come to that again.
We'll talk about all that inshallah. Don't you worry. Yeah, good question. All that thought for a sec. Yeah. Yeah. All right. Here is. So this is what the what we're taught to believe in physics. We're taught to believe in physics, that the entirety of the universe came from that one big bang. Alright, would someone like to read for me? This part? Let me pick.
Was me me? Oh, wait, okay. Go and make right from here. From where? Sorry. Okay.
How can one be so confident in this account of the formation of the entire universe? But how about most skeptic skepticism for cons considerably less fantastic account of the formation of Homo sapiens or any other species is men more complex than the entire universe?
Okay, so the fury of the Big Bang is a very
this account, this theory is a very,
very improbable thing to happen, right? Very, very rare. In fact, it's literally like once in the history of humanity, this would happen. Okay? How is it that we're expected by it by science, that belief in something like that, but we are told that believing that Allah made humans and everybody else is far more illogical? That's the question he's asking, Hey, let's keep reading. Would you like to keep reading? May?
Alright, somebody else would like to know, perhaps Alright, now go ahead.
Modern science asked us to accept that the entire universe came to be without physical precedent. Then why by scientists own lights? Is it so inconceivable out of hand for a single species or even organisms generally to appear without physical precedent? Yeah, what precedents? Do you know what precedent or precedents means?
It means something that's there before, right? An example before. So were asked by physics. This is the dominant theory of physics, that everything we believe in, or everything around us. It came without a physical precedents before it meaning there was nothing before it physically. And then it came into existence. That's what we're taught to believe. If you study physics and in high school, and then University, that's the dominant theory that we're taught. Okay. There's other theories as well. Then the question is, if that is something you assume to be true, why can we assume that a single species write it? like humans? or other organisms? Why can't they just appear out of physical
precedents? Remember, I told you, we believe a lot particular made by them on the earth or in heaven?
Where do we believe Alamosa was made? on the earth or in heaven? Heaven, in heaven, he was made in heaven, right.
And there is some things about other medicinal or in fact, there's things about human beings that set us apart from the rest of the last creation and the rest of whatever exists in the world. Okay, for example,
our ability to communicate, now we know animals communicate, the Quran speaks about a, you know, and communicating or a honeybee communicating with other honeybees. That's all there. But the way we communicate is for us communication isn't just basic information, do this don't do that. For us, communication is a way of life. We have poetry, we have prose, we have art, we have, you know, we write books, we take information, and we, you know, pass it on civilization after civilization generation after generation. Right? That is a uniquely human trait. Would you agree with that? Yeah. Right. There's something very special about the fact that the humans can do this, right. And there's
certain things that we have, like the ability to acquire knowledge. So you could learn, really, whatever it is, you need to learn whatever it is that you set your mind to learn, you can learn it. It's not like, it's impossible. It's impossible for me to swim for a kilometer, okay, it's impossible. A fish can do that. I can't do that. Humans can do that. But I can learn whatever it is, I put my mind to, you see, and that's a very unique human trait. And that is actually something that the difference between humans and other species, it's very stark. Hey, and when we spoke about Washington's question about evolution, the theory of evolution, one of the biggest problems right
now with it is that it can't explain how humans are so different than the other species. If everybody came from the same single cell organism, how could one species is so vastly different, the way they speak, and the way they create civilization, and the way they pass knowledge and the way they acquire knowledge? How could they be so vastly different? There's actually a major flaw and a major problem with that theory currently. So now we're asked, you know, why can we believe that? And the answer is we definitely can believe that. Just like you can believe that all of the creation came into being
with a bang, we can also believe like literally appeared of nothing. We can also believe a look at meek Adam with this love out of nothing. In fact, he made him out of a handful of dirt.
Who at the end of the Don't worry, he made him out of a handful of dirt. And
and since he was made in heaven and then sent to the earth, He brought heavenly treats on the earth, and you will meet people.
All right. Let's continue reading. I'm gonna ask someone to finish off this last passage for us, inshallah.
Pretty sure, but now you have to miss it. All right, let's see who is a person who like to read the last part for me.
or Alicia? Or let's have Alicia read a little bit a little bit.
From after all, from after all, yes. After all science acknowledges within its overall ontology, the existence of at least one bang without
truly scientific mind wonder whether such bangs occur in other contexts? Shouldn't the nature of banks be a subject of why scientific inquiry with profound implications for all scientific subject disciplines? Alright, in the last paragraph, thank you so much, Alicia.
Oh, and some
to speak normally that makes the Quranic
Thank you. So what is this person, the guy who wrote the article, his name is Daniel, he wrote this article, he his last name is Pika, Joe.
You can Google him, I don't endorse everything this person writes. But this is actually a very good article that he wrote. And this is about, here's the crux of the argument. The crux of the argument is, if you can believe that, in the Big Bang, everything just came out of a bang, you can believe that the creation of atom was also a bang, like the Big Bang, if you can believe that, the universe can come from essentially nothing, or very small amount of matter. You could also believe that entire species, in fact, forget a species a very small part of the universe, right? Just one species out of the entire universe, we can definitely believe came from a handful of dirt that Allah grabbed
and created from that. The originator of that species. You see, that's his argument. And it makes, in my opinion, a lot of sense. A lot of water. Okay, his name is his name is Daniel. Happy got he. But Joe, that's how he spells it. I'm not sure. Are we going to draw the code? Yes, Fatima is answer that question are the code at the entity. Okay. So that is the article. Any questions about this article, how we understand Adam and Islam being brought into existence without a mother or father, we understand this in our theology and our belief, but now, I hope you also understand them logically.
Does it make sense to you people?
Yes or no? Does it make sense? I know this is deep and this is like, you know, yes. information that's processing and whatnot. But any questions or comments?
All right. Yes. Let's let us move on. Thank you very much appreciate your participation. All right. The let's go back to the story of Adam, Toby, or alhama after this creation of Adam, Alice and Alice Martha says, Well, I love them and a smile akula tomorrow go home Island mother equity for color and the only smell you have
on your team. Now there's a little twist in the tail. Not only does Allah want to show other Melissa lamb something Allah wants to teach animalism something, but he also wants to teach the angels something. He taught piano who will he taught Adam? Then all the money
He taught Adam What?
All the names, names, all of them.
And then he said them before the angels and said, Tell me the names of these if you are truthful,
what is the names of all of these things? What is the law refer to? And he says, The names of all things.
teaches Adam, the names of all things, okay?
all the names, okay?
There's some discussion about what that is okay? Mashallah, you guys are you know, what are these names these objects? And what are these names? Right, that's the question. Okay. So you're saying all profits, I'm assuming? You mean profits? All right.
creatures in the universe? Excellent. What else? Are all things on earth? Okay, things on earth?
angels, okay, perhaps very good.
So these are all good answers. I really like these answers. That
everything in heaven, everything in heaven, perhaps it Names of Allah, everything in have names of a lot Good. Good suggestions. Really good. Everything on Earth, right? Here is the reality, we actually don't know what these objects are. We actually,
don't know what these objects are. But what we do know is
that there's certain there's actually quite a few things on Earth, that share
the origin. Within between languages, between languages, the origin of the word is the same. Okay? So for example, the word from Mother. Okay. Whom in Arabic in or do you know, me? Right? In Hebrew, in many other languages there is that in the lecture meme, or the M sound in it.
And this is actually quite a universal idea. You find this across languages across many languages, certain.
Certain names or objects have universal.
names, right? It's like, there's a common, there's a commonality between all them
the word for yet I was reading this article actually about how the word yet has, it appears in the same way, the same the other hand, by the way, in, in all the languages that are called Semitic languages, and offshoots of Semitic languages. Okay? That's actually the vast majority of the world's languages in the world, yet his hand has almost the same letters in those languages in one way, or shape or form or the other. So we don't know what these objects are, okay.
But what we know is perhaps the names of
perhaps these universally common
origins of many words. Perhaps that is what Adam was taught.
Right now language is a less popular he says, languages are from him. Okay? What else una de como la la Nico, the diversity of your languages is a sign of a lot.
Meaning a lot actually, this is not like one language is better than the other language. We believe all languages are from Allah, Allah. Allah chose certain languages like he chose Hebrew and Aramaic and Arabic to reveal revelation in and he also chose other languages to reveal revelation in them as well. But languages by themselves are we attribute them to illustrata. Now there is a very strong possibility that as a minister them the means he was taught by Allah, Allah of these
objects. Those are the names that became like the, the universal origins for all the languages that came afterwards.
And that is perhaps what Allah is referring to when he says the names of all of them. All right, now I'm going to actually go on. And then the last part that says something very interesting to the angels. He says, Sara will ask a question a little bit. Is that okay?
ask me that question in a little bit. Let me finish this point. Unless Python tells Adam, that you
here are objects. And here are the names of these objects. Learn them, Adam is London them. And last Pablo asked the angels. Tell me the names of these things. If you know what is the angels respond, the angels respond by saying hollows of Hanukkah in Montana, they say glory, which you we have no knowledge, except whatever you have taught us law, Milena, we have absolutely no knowledge ourselves, whatever you've taught us, oh, Allah, we know. Okay. And this is a lesson for us. Humility is to not pretend to know something that you don't hear.
Somebody who pretends to know something that they don't actually know, that is a very dangerous.
That's a very dangerous quality. That's not actually a good thing.
Somebody who pretends to know something that they actually don't, you can say this person is is that is that person like lying about themselves? Would you agree with that?
Yes or no? Right? It's kind of like a lie. Right? You're, you're pretending to be something you're not. Isn't that a lie?
So it's a very, it's very important. That humility, like true humility is, if you know, you know, if you don't you don't pretend you just say I don't know. Is there any shame? Let me ask you a question. Is there any shame
in not knowing something? like saying I don't know and saying, like,
I don't know. Is there any shame in that? What do you think people? Yes or no?
No? Like, if you say no, then why?
What is it that a brain?
Maybe they've never heard of it? Or? Maybe
they've never heard of it?
That's a good point.
Right? And the good thing is that, at least you didn't pretend right?
Are you with me?
It's there's no shame. I
don't mean, what about
those of you will say, it's a chance for you to grow and learn about it. Excellent point.
It's like admitting defeat for some people. Excellent. Morrow, very good point. Some people think that it's like, you know, you have defeated or you admit defeat, and that's not true. I would say, See, I don't know that. I don't, I wouldn't accept this answer. If someone said to me, if I asked them, it has them in school, by the way, where is your book?
Where's the textbook? And if someone says,
I don't know, I tell them. I don't accept that answer.
Because it's your responsibility to know whether your book is correct.
Or you admit people,
it's not your responsibility. You don't agree with that? Yeah.
Right. Excellent. Well done. My hidden, right. So it, it's not.
The question is asked about something that you should know something that you knew. And then you're like, Hey, I don't know where that is. I don't accept that as an answer. But if I asked you a question that you genuinely don't know the answer to. Hmm.
That is something you shouldn't say, Yeah, I know this or make up something. Because that kind of pretentiousness is actually not very good.
Do you know in interviews, because I would conduct interviews from time to time.
If a person is pretending to know something that they don't know, it's very easy to spot it is very easy to tell it right away, like in a job into so if I asked somebody I remember I was doing this interview for somebody who
was was for an online store. Right? Right.
An online store. So I asked like a question about something that's very, very basic in like online, shopping and whatnot. And I was like, hey, how would you do that? And this person, instead of saying, you know, I've never actually done this, they started making up a whole bunch of things. And immediately, and I was doing the interview over like, Skype, you know, Skype. So immediately, I
I disqualified that person in my, in my notebook, and I say, you know, what, this person, I'm not even gonna, like, Listen to the rest of their answers. I don't even care what they have to say anymore. Right? Because they're just flat out making up stuff in a job interview, how can I trust them? When I asked them to do something at work? Like, I don't have any trust in this person? Hmm. Some people would want to get attention. So they want to know everything, it's fine to want to know everything right? It's fine to want to learn, but to pretend to know.
Is that a good thing?
to know, is that a good thing?
That's ego, right? And I'm glad that you're saying that's not a good thing at all right? Like, give me an example of this interviewer. It's just like lying, in fact, perfect. Okay, so the angels have the utmost humility. They say we don't know all look, then Allah says to Adam, Allah Adam, whom be a smirk at him. Okay, I have somebody read the transition for me. Raise your hand if you'd like to like a hand on the
Alright, we have Motorola in your deal this is giving us Marwan
then he said, Oh, I don't tell them their names. When I didn't, I told them. I told them. I told them the names of the angels did not say to you, I know the secret of the heavens and of the earth. And I know what you reveal.
Perfect. Now Allah displays these objects to the angels angels. Like we don't know what these objects are. That allows us to add them a Adam, you tell them the names of these things. And Adam then is able to tell a lot, tell the angels, what this object means and what that object means and what its name is, okay? A lot smarter than says to the angels that are not telling you that I know something that you don't, Hmm, I know, something that you don't hear is what Allah was doing. A last prophet was teaching through examples, okay, he could have told the angels, you know, humans, one of the things that makes them special is they will be able to learn and acquire knowledge, okay, they
will be able to acquire knowledge, pass it on, teach it, learn it, teach it, and generation after generation, that thing will become bigger and bigger, and better and better. Okay.
But instead of telling this difficult thing to the angels, Alice, Papa showed them the example. They like, see, that's what a human can do. You can learn and you can retain. And that actually speaks to human excellence, something that's really amazing about us as human beings, something that as a good Muslim we should be, which is our excellence, is very closely linked to the idea of us being able to learn and for us to be able to teach it. And this is something in Islam, some learning things about Islam, Koran, but also learning whatever is outside of the Quran, right? The names that Allah taught Adam, the names of all things, was this
only religious knowledge.
It wasn't right. It was all types of knowledge, including religious knowledge.
So for us, excellence means learning our religion really well. It means learning.
Like, or doing really well in school.
excelling, being really good at what you have learned, being a master in it, achieving like high, high achievements in whatever subjects you like, whatever it is that you're focusing on in school, in university, being an expert, being an expert, that is a human excellence. That's where actually we're taught to me
That's who Adam will Islam was excellence. Right? The Melissa lamb showed an example of human excellence. Okay, the problem is I'm told us that
in the law a lot hunter loves it. That in our ILA I had to come Amazon. I knew tenable
Allah loves it when you do something that you do it
you do it household
you do 100%
hmm that's what a lost Father loves his son. He loves it when we give our all to whatever it is that we're doing. Hey, what is the first I revealed in the Quran? People?
Do you know?
First I revealed
nada hamdulillah it's actually it's through this little beacon levy haluk
because Sweden the name of who created you? Exactly right. So because our faith prioritizes this, it wants us to be educated in our religion and in all aspects of life. Hmm, you will do evil.
So that is an example of that. That allows us to the angels he says wait for tonight in Malachi Curtis Julie Adama first Elijah do in law in beliefs. And here we get introduced to who?
on the translation Tell me
on chip on but what's his name?
He believes he believes this is our introduction to a beliefs. The first time in the Quran. Allah mentions him and we're going to talk about them today in sha Allah. And we have a Kahoot on Emily's story. Okay, now, here's the thing, all right.
he refused about he refused. Was that whether he acted properly? Or can we then he was an unbeliever.
Allah said to the angels bow down before Adam, this is not actually bowing down in the way of like prostrating This is actually bowing down in the way of showing.
Okay, it's like, if you are making such that words, the Kaabah right, you know, the guy buys. Yep. Right. If you make such the, let me ask you this question.
If you make such the,
to the curb, and you're actually in like an arrow in the Muslim era, does this mean are you worshiping the Kaaba?
Yes or no?
Yes or no people?
No. Yes, yes. You're worshiping the Goblin. Is that what we do? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no worship. What was God? Oh, we don't worship the cavalry. We know we worship Allah.
Worship the person who lives in the cabin. lives in the Cabo. There's no person who lives in the Kaaba and we don't know what
he all the missions are. Home, right? Correct. Every most is a Lowe's home. So Canada is a home for law. Correct?
No, till we worship Allah but see are such that to the garba is symbolic, right? It's not to the car but it is such that to Allah Are you with me?
But it is directed towards the Kaaba, the Kaaba. Similarly, the such the of the angels are such that
is to Allah directed towards the garba
the touch of the angels
is to Allah or Adam.
Allah, Allah but directed towards
words, Adam, okay, now we actually don't believe a little is in the garbage or Allah is actually part of the world. Allah is above the world, a world the time and space cannot contain a look now you really cool absorb,
absorb, absorb a lot is above his creation. Hmm.
But here is the interesting thing here. Right. The angels prostrating to ask
them is just like us prostrating towards the carrabba are such that that frustration is to Allah just like the angels such as I was to Allah except he believes except
he about what stuck but I Was he an angel?
Yes or no? Yes. It believes wasn't he? Oh, he will say yes. No, he was.
He was. He was not an angel.
Who said no.
Someone said yes. And he said something interesting about a place is not an angel.
He's a Jin Jin. But somebody said something interesting. He's a gym that lives in Jana jinda lives and it was brought to him he was brought up with the angels by Allah. But he was never an angel. Okay, very good. I heard somebody say a fallen angel. Did somebody say that? Yes. Hmm. Who said that? Bringing it rain? Where did you learn that?
Oh, no, no Christian mythology, like the Christian. That is actually the Christian belief well done. That's actually the Christian belief that beliefs was a fallen angel. We
don't believe that angels are fallen angels. We believe that the angels are servants of Allah, they worship Allah subhanaw taala. They don't disobey Him when we are somebody that we believe that he believes was a jinn
and at least was actually a very good Jim. He was a very devoted gym, that he worshipped Allah subhanaw taala a lot. All right. And we believe that he
was the member of the the genus of jinn, that's what we call it as right. But then he did something that caused Allah to expel him. And in fact, for Allah to
curse him until the end of time, which is what he just did here about, he refused, and not just refused, because he was like, You know what, I'm tired. I am kind of like, you know, a little lazy. No, it's stuck. But uh, he acted proudly. He actually thought he was better than Adam and we'll see that tomorrow those iron will study tomorrow, inshallah. Then he says to Allah, and I say to men who I am better than him. I am better than him. Oh, Allah made me from fire. And you made him from sand, fonder from them, right? So he actually it's not just that he didn't accept what Allah said. It's not that he made a mistake. It's actually that he said all along, you made a mistake in choosing
Adam over me.
That's what he said. He believes he
didn't just make a mistake.
you made a mistake, or Allah.
That's what he said. And that is the result or that's what caused him to be kicked out of paradise. And for a loss Chris to be upon him, okay. Are we
going to make mistakes as human beings? Yes, yes or no? Yes, of course, we are going to make a lot of mistakes. In fact, the prophet SAW said pulu me other math of thought. Every human being every child of Adam.
Makes a lot of mistakes. Okay, but the best of those who make mistakes
those who learn from them the best of those people. These people
are the ones who learn and fix their mistakes, right? The idea of repentance or like I'm sorry,
this is a Hadith of the hostile num, which he states this if we make a mistake.
Does that mean we are like doomed to Hellfire? No, yes or no people?
No, no, that's
that's a big No. Big No.
Difference between Adam and
Eve the difference between Adam and Eve release
exactly who said that mass mod mod Mashallah vulnerable see this, Adam made a mistake, he believes made a mistake. He believes that a lot. I wasn't wrong, you were wrong. When Adam made a mistake, he said a lot. I was wrong. I am the one who made the mistake. And that is the attitude that we are expected to have. We're sorry to make mistakes. But we're expected to learn from our mistakes. And we're supposed to fix them by making Toba by apologizing. That is what a lot of us that's what makes a great human being.
Okay, let's look at the word. Let's talk about the devil today a little bit. All right. He believes that he is a very interesting character and then we'll conclude with the Kahoot. It believes the devil.
All right. He is his name in Arabic actually means utter despair. That's what the name of the devil means utter despair, form from the word mobilus or MLS, he is named as such, because when he not just disobey the law, but flat out accused Allah of being wrong. That is when the curse of the law fell on him. And when that happens, that is a person who
is now in a state of utter despair. There is no hope for them in this point. Okay.
Now, while we I always tell them we end at 145 All right. Now, did he have a different name in in heaven?
Allah wylam probably he did. Okay. But we know him by the name of police only after he had disobeyed. Only after the curse of Allah had fallen on. But we don't know what he is. His name was before. All we know he was a devoted servant of Allah subhanaw taala. But then when he said, Allah, you're wrong, and I'm right.
That is when Allah named him he beliefs. Yeah, beliefs, or beliefs. And that became the name, the name, the one who has, who has no hope.
Now he is the member of the genius of gin
gins and human beings. Here is a small Venn diagram for you.
jinsan human beings don't interact that much. What I mean by that is, it's not that every day I have like a gym buddy that I call and say, Hey, how's it going? How are you guys? What are you guys dealing with? Corona? Right? That's not, that's not the relationship between us. And Jen's, hey, we know that there is a gin that whispers to us. Okay, we know that there is a you know, the major devil the head devil is known as it leaves and then he has an army of minions, okay? But we
don't interact with genes as much the limited interaction that happens between jinn and human beings generally comes under the under the
situation of what's called session. Anybody know what the hell means?
Magic, dark magic. Yes. And that is a very dangerous thing. That is when a human sells his soul to the devil. Okay. Now, that's a very interesting topic. We can talk about it some other time.
But the point of this is that anything bad happens to you. It's not that there's a gene in your room doing it. Okay. And anything that happens to you that is, you know, like, spooky or strange, it's not because there's some jinn out there manipulating things. No, that says, We don't believe that this is the destiny of a loss pantalla the interaction between humans and gins is a little bit Mohammed is asking how do you sell your soul Muhammad? Don't worry about it right now. And this has selling the soul By the way, this is not a joke. It's not a laughing matter. This is when a person says you know what, I don't care if I go to the fire hell, except going to the fire Hell, I just
want right now. This gin to do something to this person.
Okay, and that is the unfortunate and the tragic and the disgusting reality of black magic. We can talk about that a little bit later. Let me finish this point please. inshallah. Okay, it blease is a member of gyms and gyms are good and bad. Okay, there's good gin and bad
Do we have in the Quran? any mention of good genes? Anybody? No?
Good genes. Where are they mentioned in the Quran? good genes anyway, not with Surah
soldato Jin well done of the law, right? The law you answered
was are you?
Yes. Perfect Sudoku, Jen, what does it say? Say it has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened to the Quran. And they said, We have heard a really wonderful recital. So panela, right, these good gin, the prophet son was praying once, and they heard the Prophet some reading for an and they were amazed. And they were so amazed that they said,
when the Prophet some stood up to pray, the oppressed Well, I don't know who Lama camara de la jolla Guru ganhou yaku, gather your kulula Lee, you press close to him in great numbers, numbers, almost like tripping over each other stifling him because they wanted to hear what he was saying. They wanted to see the process of them praying. And they became so fascinated by what the prophets Islam had to say. They became Muslims. And then Subhana Allah, they went back to their agenda folks,
and said, You know what, guys, you all should become Muslims to
call to answer to this and be silent and listen for Allah Mongolia. And when he was finished, while lo illa comi him when they went back to the people to give them morning, all we are common and they said, Oh, our people, we have heard a book which has been sent down after Moses, fulfilling the predictions existing in the previous scriptures guiding to the truth and the straight path, or people believe respond to the one who calls you to God and believe in Him. And He will forgive your sins and protect you from a painful punishments. Karla, these are good genes. And these were good example, multiple examples of good genes. But there's also bad genes. The bad genes are known as
shape on or the plural of that is shell clean in English, Satan. And the head of these devils is so he really believes he believes actually is the head of these devils. Because when he was expelled from heaven, as we'll see tomorrow on Sharla, he said to Allah, He said to a lot Oh Allah allow me to live to the end of time. I'm very, you know, iommu bathroom. Okay? And a login that special permission, that's extraordinary opportunity or this extraordinary circumstance unless you can live to the end of time. Okay. All in the criminal Mubarak. Now, let's read this hadith. And we end with this and then I'm gonna go to the Kahoot Yes, I know, Fatima. There's only 10 minutes left. Okay.
javin reported that the Messenger of Allah saw some set.
It leaves places is thrown upon water in someplace in the earth, over a abandoned body of water, he places his stone upon the water. He then sends dispatches for creating dissension, essentially meaning, you know, problems within people. If, though the nearer to him and rank are those who are more notorious in creating dissension who would like to read the rest of this for me? Let's see. Let me pick somebody randomly. Let me pick

You have done well, you have done well. In fact says you in Arabic is anti You are the one who's done something and and you have really done something. You're the man
That's what he's trying to say.
Because that is the role of the devil. His role is to create dissension. His role is to
he refuses to bow before Adam. So his his role is to sow the seed of dissension among people. And that's the context that Allah sends him in. All right, let's go to the Kahoot for today, inshallah.
