And he was happy.
So, we are about halfway through the school, close to about halfway through the school I had so happens that we're about halfway through the month of Ramadan as well. And this is usually when
things start to kind of taper off a little bit.
The first week or so a lot, there's a lot of excitement, there's a lot of intentions. And then once 10 days from things, we get into the month of Ramadan, that energy starts to fade a little bit. And this is kind of that little dip that we find usually in attendance and energy and enthusiasm. But it's very, very important to continue to remain focused and to remain very steadfast and consistent with what we're doing. And then we'll see in shall in a few few more days, maybe in about another week or so that realization sorts of setting amongst the masses that you're almost done, we're about to be finished with the month. And so people once again become very enthusiastic and they become
very excited to start coming out again. But inshallah we'll be studying I am 36 through 42 I number 36 to 40 inshallah, we'll be doing today, in the previous ion that we studied, was starting a new passage which this passage I explained yesterday, quite a bit of detail serves as the central theme and focus of docread stablishing, the oneness of a lot. And it does so in a very interesting manner. The poor Alec method for establishing tawheed and educating people about the oneness of a law is introducing people to realize a very natural organic method, a very elementary method, sort of like how you would teach your child about a loss. And that is that it tells you to look around you just
look at the elements around you look at the beauty of the watch creation, and then obviously points you There is no other logical conclusion other than this is the creation of a lot. And this is such an amazing, magnificent creator and sustainer and provider, and we have to
be grateful to him, which leads us to be obedient to Him. So we can continue with this sort of theme today as well inshallah, and then we'll have some spiritual reflections like we do everyday inshallah at the end, and I am number 36, all watchtowers. LSS. So behind them at the heart of Allah has worked so hard. This is a, this is an exclamation a statement of the perfection of Allah because of the speed. So to glorify the law, so happens how amazingly perfect how absolutely perfect, amazingly follows. And the root of this word, as we want to see at the end of is number 40. At the end of our passage, he says I had the means to swim, it means to swim. And so the word devorah
violent this V
sub base model because this comes from the root word, which means to swim. Now, people have difficulty making that connection, how is that connected? So the first thing you need to understand is that there is kind of a process in the Arabic language that sometimes a word that is conjugated that is derived from a root word spins off into its own independent meaning. This is one of those words, it's taken on a life of its own that meaning of its own and it means to praise to glorify and lacinato Watch out to speak of less perfection. But there is a logical connection as well. There's a logical and a spiritual connection logical Connect
His survival doesn't just need to swim in the Arabic language in classical Arabic, it needs to swim with the head above the water, and allow our minds to swim like underwater. But when a person dies, and they swim underwater, so somebody happens to swim with the head above the water, so Suhana the speed, it comes from that meaning that just like the head is above the water, when that person swims, Allah subhanaw taala is above imperfection. He's above imperfection. He's above his creation is beyond that. And there's a spiritual connection as well. Swimming is a very interesting action in the sense that when a person is swimming in water, he requires to remain afloat, to remain swimming,
to not drown. A person requires regular, steady, constant movement, calculated regular movements. And if a person becomes stiff, and stops moving all together, you'll seem to drop, similarly to speak. The glorification of reason a lot, is what keeps us spiritually afloat in this world. Otherwise, we're surrounded by a lot of very, very tempting, and very absorbing things around us. From materialism, to shavon, to the depths of our soul, the evil of our own souls, we're surrounded by things. And so there are so many things that can just pull us down and drag us down. But the thing that keeps us afloat is a remembrance of praise the glorification of a lot, the spirit of
ALLAH maintaining That's right, that's a long time ago, when they asked the Messenger of Allah Squamish, a very,
very, very fascinating question. He said that, you know, the, the,
the different obligations and the different acts of devotion, within Islam are many, many. There, there. There's a bunch of numbers and abundance of them. But tell me something that I can do that will constantly keep me connected to a wallflower. Tell me one thing that I can latch on to hold on to, and the prophets, a lot of them told them constantly remain engaged in a remembrance of a lost power.
Keep your tongue wet and moist with the remembrance with the name of a month. And so Howard, this is you know, sometimes we take this to mean as very formal
method of thinking, a very formal way of doing liquor that you shaved and you make the spear. But that's not so the believer day in and day out. He maintains an enormous power dollar. Look at the etiquette of Islam, the etiquette of the Muslim. When a Muslim, something good happens, what does he say?
see something fascinating somehow,
something good happens to him. He says,
he sees something that impresses him or pleases Him and He says
he said I'm going to do something tomorrow decided to get I'm going to do something tomorrow he says insha Allah,
somebody dies, he loses something something bad, tragic happens. He says another night.
Constantly the name of a muscle. I even seen that sometimes in community in society and social circles. People find it kind of awkward.
You know, like if they attribute to being like a movie like this guy, as well.
Come on, guy What's wrong with you? But this is how the believer speaks. This is another believer talks.
This name always constantly Allah.
you know, rather than the things The unfortunate thing to be saying today.
I mean, sometimes you just to say things, but sometimes the situation people will take over things. This is something surprising, the curse, something bad happens. They curse, they like something
better than that.
So how amazingly how absolutely perfect, is the one allele Holla
Holla who created as well as word means parents.
Parents, he created pairs.
All explained explain this in a minute.
He created the pairs all of them. member to be the member to be eaten up. From that lunch the earth sprouts out women and forcing him and from themselves. woman alone and even from those things that they don't even know they don't even understand or realize. What I was saying is attributing perfection glory of the lost power to the one who created pairs of everything from that which goes from the earth. We see pairs of things but what do you mean grows from the earth? You see some things are sweet, some things are better. Some things are green, some things are yellow and blue and orange and green and red.
All different types you know in Texas here in the summertime
We have the blue bar.
I mean, fascinating. You're driving by the island, you see purple
bar, you see a patch of green grass, a little bit of Patrick
said Same, same soil, same size, same rain, green here, privilege,
period, some things are long, some things around. Some things are hard. Some things are soft. pears are everything from the earth. And then not only that, when we get to see him from themselves, male and female columns fall back, and then black and white, all different types of pairs of opposites.
What are those things that they don't even realize?
From even those things that they don't even realize? That now that we think about it slowly, slowly, people continue to realize more and more. And there are so many mirrors with
everything, the sky when it's the earth at night, there's a date hot for that there's cool, north and south, east and west,
disappears of everything. And the things that we don't even know why those best. But how many things have we realized over time that maybe they didn't know about before? I mean, the atom or the splinter, what did they find? They found opposing energies when
you have protons and electrons, so many different things that were realized.
So Allah subhanaw taala, has created pairs.
And even when he says created spiritual damage rose from the earth, this event occurred at the time with a processor that cross pollination.
It's a method of agriculture cross pollinate.
That literally is like pears you cross them and it increases the abundance, the harvest. So let's create the pairs of everything.
We need to
point out a couple of things specifically, why.
And a major sign we talked about the word is today is the night la mesilla. When
necessary, mesilla from South Africa comes from the root of the word which means to peel the skin off a man, when you skin an animal, after slaughtering it, after cutting it, you skin the animal that is
so messed up, we know now also if we peel away from it the day, from the night we peel away the day, meaning what there's the night, tomorrow morning when the sun rises, but this is sunlight, it brings it in and it does work it covers up the night.
And then look how the sun sets again, what starts happening on the sensor to set
the light starts to recede, it's less less than it gets darker and darker and darker and darker slowly. So it's almost like it's been peeled away till it becomes completely dark in our home.
Then all of a sudden, they are in darkness.
They're in complete darkness. With shadows, the sun
is moving for a set course that has been fixed for it. The sun is moving for a set course that has been fixed for it. Now what's the problem? Typically in Arabic language means like when something's been fixed in a place, the permanent fixture the permanent setting of something. But this is obviously talking about the course and the orbit and the movement and the growth and the life cycle of the sun. That is, but why is it called Mustafa. Because just like when you fix something in its place, well sometimes where something belongs, or something, even when you do move it moving and put it back where it belongs, it's in fixed place. You've almost created a fixture for it, a place for
it. So because the sun, even though it does have movement, it's not physically in one place. It has broken there as movement and the universe is expanding. Now we know all of these things from astrology, but it is as if it's been fixed in a place because Allah subhanaw taala has set it up of course, and he cannot move of course, was sheltered until he was suffering.
That is a determination meaning that is what's been fixed what's been determined, but has been set down by Allah Aziza already
talked about the attribute of a disease it means the one who is dominating overpower that he's put everything into its place and nothing can come out of its place. Nothing can move from its course nothing can
divert, divert away from instead path in and set forth and where allows final without I have said it. Why because he said he dominates and overpowers everything. I mean, he is the one who knows everything constantly,
fully in knowledge of each and every single thing. That is that thing.
was to move from its place. And last.
But he knows that he said it there and it will never move from its place.
Well, so what's the opposite we were talking about pairs, what's the pair of disciplines the opposite of the sun, the moon.
what the law says the more of the law Vanessa, we have fixed for it. Man as a man as in in the Arabic language means different stages men's in men as in fixed very different stages. And that's the cycle of the woman. It goes through its entire cycle and stages to 28 or 29 days or nights that we have had a deal IR that it has returned the gun to open June in London, just like on June, on June in the Arabic language refers to a date stock, a date calm. So the Trump the stock of a date calm, that when it was alive and abundant and fruitful. It will have they taken from it, what does when there's an abundance of days hanging from that a pocket stock? I mean, what does it do to it,
it makes a curve and bend over the curves over and bento but unless has been very, very old, that long after it stopped giving fruit. And it basically died. And it dries up to where now it's lifeless, systemically dry, incendiary, and that curve shaped kind of like the crest, the crescent of the moon.
So Allah subhanaw taala, saying that the moon goes through all of its stages and stages and cycles to the returns back into that shape. That condition, the likeness of which is like the old drawing of the promenade. stockouts curved. And this is talking about either the beginning or towards the end of the month, the crescent moon that we all know.
And somehow the cover was making a connection. He talked about starting off talking about me mapping out from that which rose from the earth. Now he's talking about the moon. But look at there's a correlation, there's even the connection, you can see something, the beauty of something that is rich of ice cream from the earth, you can see it in the moon. And you can see something from the beauty of the moon from that with the love cream from the earth. It's all connected.
Why? Because it's all the creation of
nobody else can create such a universal sense a flawless, a symmetrical creation, that everything ties into each other.
And all of this is connected as well they ignite, though they have an effect on that which goes from the earth. Absolutely. That which was from the earth is directly affected by the day in the night. So everything is interconnected. This is a cycle a system that was created. Last chumps. Allah says that it is not the shampoo yoga, it is not appropriate for the sun and to the nickel, that it catch up to the moon.
When the sun has its time, and then the moon has its time. And it's not appropriate for the sun to catch up or take over the moon. You can't do that. And why does have a statement like this? Why not say the moon catch up to what's the more powerful dominating force the sun, we know that from what we see, when you see the board at night, which is nice, it's pretty much beautiful. But the sun
is here 105 degrees.
We all know the southern half dominating it is and even scientifically as astronomically speaking, the moon is there but the sun is that powerful force, the center of this galaxy,
the solar system,
so central to so but even that sun, as big and as powerful as it is, it cannot catch up or take over the moon space.
Allah has set the system, everything stays in its place. Everything stays its course. Everything follows the orders that it's been given. Whatever they use, and likewise, it is not appropriate for the night
proceed the day when
and Saba who's only leaving behind proceeded. But kind of run away from it. The night becomes crazy, or the night becomes wrapped rabid and gets out of control.
And it just speeds ahead and it just becomes night all the time.
Because remember, he said the day comes and then the day is peeled back. So it's not like the night can just stay for the night can just keep going on and the last kind of distance from the blessing of Allah. Allah is letting us know what a huge blessing it is that alas of the system into place in another place in the US. Allah subhanaw taala says that will
Hello. My name is Salma, then, Eli.
Then do you don't think
Once you see, don't you understand and realize,
have you seen and understood that you thought for a minute,
that if I was to make it night forever, someone
that who could ever bring the day back to you?
Nobody could except for
you hear. But
likewise, wonderful Mother's Day forever.
Never be an idea who could bring the night back to
no one except
for them to see, don't you understand that you realize. So this is a blessing of a loving explain to us. And then finally, Allah summarizes all of this very beautifully. And he says,
He fell in his lap. And each and every single one of these things he fell for that refers to like a pattern, or a system like an orbit, a path,
or actually comes from the word which refers to ships, sailing in the ocean, but like when a ship sails in the ocean, and it has a path. So similarly, it's talking about like a course set path, a set course, each and every single one of these things. Yes, buffoon are constantly, it's in the present in the future tense form, the Medallia form, they are constantly swimming.
And once again, that swimming is that consistent regular motion, and action. They are constantly swimming along their set course in their set path, just like you see as a ship sailed out in the water. And it's just moving right along pretty consistently, very smoothly, it's moving along. Just like that. Every single thing is falling into course, it's moving right along, according to the command and the pattern and the course of the last one, which as decreed Farina has set it upon.
Now, these are the five, I add just a little bit of a spiritual reflection on these five, I have some lessons that we can take from it. First of all, in the last previous passage, we've been talking about how we talked about, spiritually speaking, the person who's died on the inside is harvested, and are likely to revive his heart through NEMA. And how this will bring fruits benefits to himself, and to those around them will become a source, a spring, a source of benefit to those around him as well to his community in his society, just like we've seen in the past,
it would sometimes only take one person.
And that will change the course of the families with tribes and cities and towns and entire nations. So similarly, this person can change. So now let's take a look. There are parents that there's this is this, the life of this world. But this has an opposite as well what is the opposite?
The life of the hereafter.
And Allah tells us
there is the dunya but there's also the alpha and
the alpha is better and longer lasting. And the prophets tells us something beautiful. He says
the life of this rope has been Yeah, Is it sweet.
Hugging off, it's green, like lush, green, glitzy, glamorous, bling, shiny.
Meaning it's attractive. You know what the other significance of those sweet things they spoil faster than better.
sweet things spoil faster then.
It's a reality. So even though there's really a very, very sweet
at first days, it spoiled
hubiera what's up in finance green, as we see outside, lush green attracted. But what's the reality of this greenery WC outside what's going to happen in another month or so it's going to start dying. It's going to shrivel up and go yellow within brown and then just die away.
These trees will be buried in a couple of months. So that's the reality.
So let's start with this. There's a pair for everything. Opposite pairs. This is linear, but it has enough. And that's better work for that. Sacrifice this for that if you have to do me a massage. This is where you plant your aka. This is where you plant the seeds for the chakra that you harvest over there.
The second thing is just like there is a bond There is also
there's belief in religious belief.
There's claim and then there's sharp. There's good and bad. There's how true and there's
there should be
gratefulness, thankfulness, and this from
ungratefulness, in gratitude, there are pairs of these things as well. There's humility, there's arrogance, there appears of all of these things. And we have to constantly keep choosing the right one, we have to keep making the right choice. You have to strive for the better of the two options. The better why they never met today.
was as he laid out the two paths to choose from and shall we just resetting through to gather data to go from a chair of a human woman Sha.
Allah has given you the faculties their capacity.
And he's laid everything out for you, wherever whatsoever believe whoever wants to let him know.
It's your choice now. So there's an option. There's parents, not just physically but spiritually, there are parents as well. There's Japan, there's not, there's paradise and there's no,
we have to make that choice.
The next thing that I was gonna point out then, is what I have to learn to lay out.
Like, Allah says, there's darkness that's assigned
You don't it's easy to take it for granted.
When you're born Muslim when you're raised, but as Muslims, it's easy to take things for granted. But look around.
Look at the darkness in people's lives.
Look at the pain that often brings this really brings a disconnect from a lot of pain that it brings the the the lack of peace and tranquility, that it brings a strong plus. And electing that new guidance.
That is the light. Like just like Allah says, he feels the day away, he can peel that away from somebody.
And then they're left wondering about their darkness, like the examples when many examples of like,
what shows you that anything was suffering that doesn't get something as powerful, as beautiful and as glorious as the sun? Because following its path,
the government doesn't divert away, look obedient to this human being, why can't you be like this? Well,
because the moon goes through its stages and cycles, look at the human being how it goes through stages inside
is conceived fetus, in the womb of the mother, then is born into this whole time baby can even roll over level and over level and
then he grows, he crawls and he walks and he talks and he eats and he cleans and you become more and more independent writes, learns
more and more continues to grow, becomes physically mature, emotionally mature, psychologically mature, then he gets married. And then he has children. And they have children any degrees and it gets old and it becomes critical. And then he dies and he leaves this world and is put right back into
the sector all the pundits bent over, dried up.
No more benefit in it. The human being will become
will become what if if we live long enough, will also be physically frail, emotionally and even mentally very, very old. deficient.
no benefit to anyone
just sort of sitting on the side as an afterthought.
But when you're going through recycle, like the moon is in the middle of its cycle. You go outside and look at the moon right now. big, bright, glorious, was beautiful thing in the sky. She was like that at one time. It was big and he was beautiful and he was bright.
But Allah says he has to return back.
Just like the moon every single month we see the moon go through the cycle human being you will ask you're going through a cycle as well realize it you have the opportunity right now. If you have money use it to please if you have health use it physical strength use and intelligence use it whatever you have at this moment use it to please Allah because time will come when you will no longer have this reminds me of that either the profits allow the seller raises the
value they make the most of five things before finally it's a very long it may be one other day. During the series we might be able to talk about it. But the profits assumptions value five things before five come and he says well that your youth and your energy and your health and your life. Use these things make the most of them. Before you no longer have to before death comes. Poverty comes old age comes weakness. Sickness comes before these situations go make the most of what you have. Let's jump to your well being
They'll come up with a news article, and nothing will break the cycle of almost certainly the law. So not the liability, but the fear about the
lack of delivery. Well,
this is a tsunami that has passed before in his life, that it's, it's, it's gone on for generations for centuries for millennia, and there is no you will never find a change or an alternative, something altering or changing in the cement the force of the loss of power, that he has decreed that he has set for his creation.
So, similarly, just like that sun cannot come and overtake the moon,
the night cannot run away from the day. Similarly, you won't be able to escape the cycle either.
When the time comes at fixed appointment comes for us to lead us wrong by yourself.
we can bring in a second too quick, the second before nor will we be able to gain an extra minute or even an extra split second, the time comes a time.
Know soul dies, Nobody leaves, nobody dies until they have completed that is the sustenance of the last breath. You cannot leave this world when you have one breath remaining. And you cannot take an extra breath before you leave this falls completely fixed.
So similarly, our route was fixed as well. Our courses fixed fee for that are all a part of the system. And the sooner we realize it, the better we will we will be learned because we'll be able to make that better choice out of that two choices that that parent will be able to make the better choice. They have last one alternative assault, the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard. So have a language have these practical level. We haven't even done that
