R, what is
alameen wa sallahu wa salam,
O Allah and he was actually
doing a little bit of a smaller portion just because there are some important things to discuss. And then from insha Allah from tomorrow, we'll be able to do a few bigger chunks of ionic Java.
From today we're starting a new habit of this. And this is the central part of the surah.
Just based on the the IR, this is the middle part of the sutra and then serves a very pivotal central role within the theme and the concept of the soul as well. And that is the beginning of this world. Like I talked about the beginning and the introduction of suity. I see that there are three primary themes and focus within makan makan revelation Bucky swirls, that is the oneness of a lot oneness of God. Secondly, the Salah, which is messenger, or Prophethood. And thirdly, finally is Ashkelon, which is a life of the hereafter. And all three of these are usually found in some capacity or another within monkeys who loves sushi, I think part of its distinctive role and its
feature, part of what makes it the hardcore is in a very emphatically talks about all three of these concepts in very in a very powerful manner, in a commitment. It speaks about oneness of Allah, it speaks about the messenger of Buddha and the Prophet, Muhammad's a lot, he set out in a very, very powerful tone. And then he speaks about the life of the Hereafter, beyond judgment, in a very, very powerful manner as well. Now, the way this was laid out is the first part of this will focus heavily on the issue of profit, messenger. That's why even academics are sending and that's why when it switched, he talked about the messengers who came to the people of the village, the people of the
town before so it's talking a lot about Prophethood and messenger with the end of the soul as we'll see each other towards the end of the month of Ramadan in our series, here, it talks, it will talk inshallah heavily about the life of the hereafter what will happen on to the judgment, accountability, reckoning, and so on, and so forth. The middle part of this webinar is going to talk about the pain oneness of God. And it's very fitting as well, the way it's structured and introduced as messengers bringing the message. And alpha is the results of that message. Those who believe who find their resolve those who disbelieve and oppose the message will find a result. But what was the
crux of that message? What decided their fate one way or the other? It is this middle part of their commitment to a loss of power,
how willingly they accepted their pain, and how they were able to live by this creed. And so this was this middle part of this was want to talk about, before we get into the actual I I wanted to talk about a couple of basic concepts of this, that the way that we're on talks about the oneness of Allah, or something very interesting. I wanted to point out here,
normally, especially today, within the Muslim community, even whenever we talk about when there's a lot of pain, it's taken on a very philosophical, a very logical tone, the discussion has, you know, the proving the existence of God, the oneness of God, and the presence of a higher being and a divine power. It's taken on a very philosophical, very logical type conversation. And that's become the tone of discussion and conversation, even within the Muslim community. Even Muslims to quite an extent, are very, very infatuated enamored with talking about the concept of the rain, from a very philosophical perspective, and even sometimes a very sight
But the arm when we look at the upper arm, how does the Parana teaches the concept of doping? When there's so alive the existence of a divine being and the divine power, how does it approach this topic of the subject, then that teaches national something very interesting. The Quran does not approach in very philosophical terms that are unused is more of what you could even call the process of deduction, deductive reasoning deductive logic. mean, there are a set of circumstances, there are certain things that can be seen, that can be observed. That leads you to an obvious conclusion. And that's why when there's a lot going on, have a
look at the camera
came from, because guys memories where you let your body get from those other mountains that when you wrapped it, well, you don't obligate for something, the earth has been spread. When I need to each other
function team and academia Welcome to business the way they usually vary. This is a powerful way of summarizing that he's created here for you. We did humble travel on it, the walk all over it, it's there for you to use and walk all over functional human activity, I go and walk around in all corners of the earth and go all the way up to the top of the mountains and look and walk all around what could we miss the and the sustenance of Allah tala that grows out of desert that he provides the desert, in a shoe, and eventually will be, you will be brought back resurrected, and collected before all US power
exclusively before. So this is a way.
In of all, it's always a very elementary method of teaching you almost like you would teach a child eema. But that is the most that is the most powerful method, the most directed direct method to understand. And to realize that a lot is there a lot is why that alone, and he's the one that we should be devoted dedicated to, and that we should be worshipped.
And so this is the way that Brian introduces us to a loss of time. And we're going to see the same thing here in sort of the SEO as well. And so when I have number 33, Allah subhanaw taala is going to begin by saying what I do.
And that's what I wanted to talk about this word I got
that a lot points to I got, but then it came to begin to lock Level II. That is how I live explains to you, he clarifies to you, he lays out for you, his ayat. So what this is where I have been, I am inside.
But not just aside, it is a very obvious, apparent.
unavoidable immutables are something that you can devote, like when you're driving down the freeway and ditches big clearing site, and it's blinking exit now, you just can't miss it. It's staring you in the face, you have to be trying to visit orange.
That's the type of shine that is not only that, but I also is such a sign that doesn't
engage you does not absorb you in looking into the sign itself. Rather than sign immediately point you to something else, you don't have to make a conscious effort.
You don't have to make a conscious effort to seek that same point your mind in a certain direction. When you're driving down the highway and it says the highway is this way says I 20s. This way, you don't sit there and start studying design. How big is the diameter of the side? What colors decide I wonder who made decide who painted design who printed, you know, that sounds like a concern to your mind immediately goes to the freeway to the highway to the route. And that's what I have is when somebody gives you a gift, somebody gave you a plaque or a car and you hung it up on your wall. When you look at that hardware lifecycle, the same type of material that is when the rear was printed who
who came up with the idea of it, I wonder what kind of machine they use.
When you look at that packet, we look at the current image of the person that gave it to you. Oh, and that's from the colleague that was oh yeah, that that brother gave me this card that immediately put your mind in that direction. souvenirs do the same thing. You come back from Niagara Falls with a little globe, snow globe, use it and obsess over the globe, who put these little things in there. How does this work?
You look at it immediately remind you of Niagara Falls. And so that's the type of sign it happens. It's very obvious, apparent unavoidable, it's in your face. Secondly, you don't even have to make a mental conscious effort in order to have it reflect you to something else immediately. Just when you look at it, you see something else, your points your mind can point you to something else. That is what it is. And so when the last card talks about the ions around us, they should immediately be pointing us to a loss
matcha and when they don't,
when we look at the sun and the moon and the sky and the earth, and the trees and the leaves of the ocean, we look at these things and ourselves. And it doesn't lead us directly to Allah immediately doesn't turn our light to Allah, that's a sign of one of two things. Either there's a lack of intelligence, a lack of mental awareness, consciousness. Or secondly, it's a deficiency within the filter of that person, a person has become corrupted, down to the most core of that person, the filter of that person is becoming corrupted. So when the fitrah is clean, and the mind is awake and open, it will immediately lead a person to a loss.
You know, and air quality says, Well, I want to know why. In each and every single thing, there's a miraculous sign that pointing directs you to the fact that a loved one.
You know, the bad ones, they were very eloquent people. And he's a very beautiful thing. Sometimes. There was a better one man, who was challenged was questioned by something simply couldn't
sit forever, everything new for every claim, there is evidence proof. What is your evidence and proof for believing in the law? So the Bible says something very beautiful, very eloquent. He said, about
camel droppings, they tell you that
a camel was here.
Well, I fell in love without
footprints in the sand when
somebody walked by him.
So he said,
Well, we have a watch.
He said that the earth is full of trees, the sky full of stars, and sun and moon and planets, and the ocean full of waves. Doesn't that tell you that?
He created all this. It should lead you directly. There
are talks about what matters to
our users a very beautiful example. He says not even a leaf falls from a tree.
You know why it says that because that's something that's so small, insignificant happens all the time that you don't even think about you don't even realize. But imagine that
every single leaf falling from a tree is by the
by the commandment.
There's another beautiful variation.
That is has an added status that talks about the profits a lot. He said a
piece of it. The reflexology passed by a veteran man, and he was making Dr. His prayer, scrolling up all
the profits of awesome stuff to listen to him for a minute. And the band was saying this prayer Yeah, but that's
would have to follow to maintain our comprehension. When
people cannot praise you as you deserve to be praised, will add to that you will.
And that changes the incidents and the occurrences that go on incidents that happened do not bring about a change in the law. When I shed the light, he does not fear the trials and tribulations of time yada yada. He knows the exact weight of the mountains of the world. Well McAfee that we have. He knows the exact volume of the oceans of the world. Why the love of God he knows the exact number of drops of rain that fall from the sky. While other the weapon has job. He knows the exact number of leaves all the trees of the entire world. Why?
audio now? He knows the exact number and details of everything. The night may hide in his darkness, or do they illuminate?
Well, that's what he knows about. One sky cannot hide the shield another sky from a low
one ground cannot hide the shield underground from along with logical Murphy.
And in a mountain in its deepest, darkest caves, cannot hide anything from a law and the ocean in its depths in its darkness cannot hide anything.
This is totally understood this is how they were able to reflect on what was going on around them. So this is how the Quran teaches us to believe in a loss of power.
So that's the first thing to realize. Secondly, the progression, how it brings about change enlightenment.
First is I got this I have this miraculous amazing side that put you in the right direction. What is the objective of that I are they just dare to say whoo Wow, bringing High School amazing and that that's it.
No, it's not a it's not a show. But that I am leads us to somewhere else. When that for that came in never enter.
It's for reflection. It's to remind wake up the person what's a reminder, it's a wake up call, remind you of something. And reminder is what somehow I think of the word reminder. A reminder is, is that giving me new information, when I remind you of something, am I giving you information? No, I am just bringing to your attention, I am reminding you of information you already have something you already know something you already realize, I'm just reminding you of it. Within each and every single physical line that
we are all created upon this is his innate nature, to turn to a lot to go to a lot to believe in a lot to devote and dedicated worship.
And not only that, but the varad even tells us that we lost our agenda to the Old Covenant from all of us. And that's to be wrong.
Am I not your master your Lord?
Each and every single one of us and most definitely you are? Most definitely you are.
So that same consciousness that that realization is hidden within each and every single human being. But these miraculous signs all around us are there to remind us.
And some of them
lead to the reminder, they can think of it as key. It leads us to the reminder.
Now when the person needs the reminder, when a person does realize he remembers what is his goal, what is his purpose? What's his purpose of existence, that leads a person to a very important stage. And that is sugar,
gratefulness, facts, that person becomes grateful for all October's powder for everything.
And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. Army This was that's how we get to that. And how do we let go to the brain to glorify illustrata it leads a person to become grateful, thankful.
And once why and so Pamela, this is interesting, the opposite of
COVID needs to be ungrateful. But we also know that means disbelief, because sugar is the basis of the amount of belief
and when that person becomes grateful, the manifestation of gratitude. thankfulness is what, it's not just lip service. It's not just the tongue, then it leads to a bada
in slave enslaving oneself to willingly, voluntarily.
Understanding my goal, my purpose in life is to be a slave of Allah. And what we can specifically call the most obvious form of that slavery to Allah is worship. It leads us to worship. A person who goes through this journey, who sees the signs is reminded and is grateful. That person doesn't have to be forced to pray.
That first person doesn't need a police force to make sure that he's fasting.
He doesn't know.
That's the person that wakes up in the night, when it's not even a phone prayer. pours himself drags himself out of bed at 3am goes and Mitch loo stands up says a lot of Aqua stands in the darkness of night with nobody knowing what he's doing.
He doesn't need any other extra incentive. That's a person during his lunch break. While everybody is laughing and joking and talking and, you know, entertaining themselves and having a good time and socializing. That's a person that finds a quiet little corner and opens up
nobody's making him do it. It's not an obligation
And that is a realization of truth, being a slave, and realizing our purpose and our role in life. So this is kind of like a, you could consider it
a prerequisite to the passage that we're going to be studying now. And if we keep this in mind that inshallah will be very easy for us to understand the subsequent If so, which I love For this reason, since we spend some time on the introduction here, we'll only be studying three I attended very basically lost power Tom and I in number 33. He says, Well, I will make the why.
And one of in a miraculous side, why this isn't as common for next year.
So lessons, why the two
and a miraculous sign for them. For these people who don't realize it is a major, it is the death earth.
And the reason why the word AI is in its common form either
to show that there's something very important
As we talked about, or it's also a little weird, because there are multiple ways to understand what this is, there are multiple ways to reflect on this, which I'll come back to, after briefly explaining the way that we revived it. We brought this earth back to life, the earth being dead as well. Nothing grows out of its bearing Earth, unless we revive the earth. Is it difficult for a lot to revive yet? It just simply rained and what happens that life that Earth comes right back to life, if it doesn't rain, somewhere for six months, eight months, the earth dies, and then all of a sudden the rains and what happens it comes right back to
what happened. And the law says we bring out from it from the earth have been
a seed a grain
from India, from that they eat from that is what they are eating, what they are living off that seed that green that goes out of that person, which we have Jannat And not only that, but then what is the progression of that? Where does that evolve to? Where does it progress to which I'd like to identify then we've made that within this earth Jannat many, many gardens, Midlothian that are full of date palms and dead trees. Well, I've been grapes, and dates and grapes, these are two very, very,
very, you know, amazing forms of the sustenance of Allah that Allah provides from the earth, and especially for the Arabs to create some context here. Nothing was basically one of their primary forms of sustenance, it's how they lived and how they survived was what they did business with. And and upgrades was a form of luxury. So Allah says, not only do does Allah create gardens of that which you can live off of like corn and potatoes and wheat and grain. Not only that, but even luxury items brought from this earth, like grapes, and mangoes and different types of luxuries, which you might consider. They also grow out from this earth as well. Well for geography having an animal says
we made Gosforth mean had a remote mineral No, we made Gosforth fi high in this earth minute Are you from springs, water gushes forth out of this earth. So first is Earth was barren, nothing was there, not only going to last Fontella revived the earth made something come out of it. But then there are necessary forms of sustenance going out of luxury items going out into luxury food growing out of it. And not only that, but then on top of it, Allah says water gushes forth from desert, so the water is coming down from on top, and it's coming from the earth as well, no, no lack of water, Leah put them in February, so that they may eat from each fruit, while not at him, and their hands did
not do any of this.
So that they can eat from its root and then have access. By the way, if you haven't, it just in case you forgotten. Their hands haven't done any of this. They didn't bring the earth back to life. They weren't, they can't.
They can't make something out of the earth, a lovely set up and they can't bring the water out of here alone makes it happen. They can't do any of this.
To be my my, Allah says,
If I was to make the earth recede,
back into the forest and make the water received down back into the ground into the earth, for me to remain where you can bring it back up to the surface for you. Nobody could, nobody could. So they can do this with their hands. There's another way to understand this, this can be understood as a negation in their heads or it can be understood, understood
and dealt with their hands have done meaning a lost power has given them all of this has made provided all of this facilitated all of this so that they can eat the fruit.
They can eat the fruit that which Allah has provided to them, his from a loss routes, or memory and training or even that what they do what they earned with their own hands. That too is only due to a loss of power, making it possible. I mean, when people do go out there and they make something they grow something, they earn something with their hands. Is that possible without it being facilitated by a law? Absolutely not. They can't even when a farmer does farm, any harvest is his crop. He was only able to do that because the lovers provided the earth, the sunlight, the water, the the fertility of the soil, if a lab provided that could he have grown anything.
So there's two ways to understand is that their hands and not do anything, they didn't make any of this happen, or whatever they make happen is also due to only a loss of facilitating it. for them. That's only why they're able to provide anything for themselves. I find it
I find it
So then the five years, I guess a conclusion, then finally, as a conclusion, are they not grateful?
Are they not grateful? Don't they realize? Don't they show their gratitude? Why don't they live a life of gratefulness for everything that was given to them? When they can't even survive, they can live in mentioned food and water here in design, they would die without providing for them. Why aren't they grateful? So this is a kind of an understanding of the text of the eye. And so it obviously he's talking about the nature that we see around us, lovemaking everything that happens around the smokey what we drink, what we live off what we survive off. But there's another understanding to desire as well. There's a spiritual reflection here as well. This is like the
physical understanding of these ions. But there's a spiritual interpretation, understanding of these ions as well. What is that the previous ayah, the previous ayah that we studied yesterday is number 32.
ended by saying what he couldn't imagine
that he eventually each and every single one of them will be presented before us.
That we will be presented that we made to set this is of course talking about resurrection, being brought forward and brought back to life from the judgment it may be made to stand before a lot. Now, we know that the machine, aka disbelievers throughout, you know the history with all the different prophets and messengers, and even with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in one of their primary objections also all the way back from that a llama
a number. When we're dead, and we decomposed within the earth, how are we going to be brought back to life? That's impossible? What are you talking about? What is this nonsense? So this was a major objection that they had, and a lot of answers that objection that you have doubts about how you can be brought back to life, human beings can be given existence again, be physically brought back to life. Look at the earth.
This is where this example works. It's giving the example of a human being that just like a luck and bring the earth back to life, this Mater was completely dead.
But not only did
he brought it back to life, and then the rest of this stuff seems
to have been great began to grow out of it for many people are eating from it, which honestly, I do not even have seen. That same barrier does not become lush gardens, full of deep trees and deep problems and grapes, all different types of fruits and vegetation is growing lush gardens. Well, photography, and not only that, but then there's springs gushing poured out of that same ground. That's a bland that's incorrect that was buried before the
issue. And people are benefiting from it. They're eating from it. They're making more out of it.
Why don't you realize why aren't you grateful? That alone will bring you back to life just like you can bring this bare Earth back to life. And not only that, but we take it a step further, spiritually speaking, it also shows how a person can become spiritually revived. Somebody who does not have a body in his heart, does not have to wait does not have the understanding of the oneness of Allah. His heart is dead, second dead person spiritually speaking, I hate when Allah granted the understanding of terrain, even he's just been brought back to life. Well,
some good comes out of him.
And he starts to benefit because of the people around him are benefiting from that good.
And if he continues to walk down this path, what happens? He can continue to climb.
The steps of taqwa Tohoku Saba phukan bill, he can continue to climb the steps of piety, God consciousness, reliance upon the last power to grow spiritually, he can become like that lush garden with nothing What are all different types of benefits are coming out of him socially he's beneficial to the people around him in his family he's benefiting from him. In working in business people are benefiting from everywhere he goes people benefit from him. Well photography,
and then springs gushing forth. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam has often use the example of water for knowledge for then that become person becomes a source of teaching other people something good. The prophets allottee some says.
province of licenses my example an example of that, which Alaska sent me with is like abundant rain falling down from the sky.
So then he's benefiting other people, which
what brings life to things as water, what will spiritually revive society community will be good people. Remember
good people will revive communities, revive societies are
so many, so everyone can start to benefit, live a life that is that is full of tranquility and peace, a beautiful life
and they'll be rewarded for the good.
And this this this extrapolation or this understanding, this interpretation of these IR to have a spiritual reflection is not something new. What does it for analysis
Allah says that a good word. EMA is like a beautiful tree.
I still have that but the roots are very firm, solid, unshakable, thorough,
but its branches reach far up into the sky, to to open.
It gives us fruits
at all times and all seasons be interrupted by the command and the permission on the floor. It's a faster way of doing
that same thing. Allah is giving these examples so that people will remember. Don't be reminded of what their purpose and their goal and their objective in life is. So inshallah we'll go ahead and we'll stop here and we'll start from number 36
