Without Him the LAO salatu salam ala Rasulillah Welcome back everyone to embrace the Quran fsid solitaire seen. Allah subhanho wa Taala continues on mentioning the different ayat, the different signs. And he's mentioning the signs as proof for the ability of Allah subhanaw taala. To bring people back to life. Allah subhanaw taala says we're here to live whom la luna Slavic women who don't have another sign for them is also the night as well. The night from which the night which comes after Allah subhanaw taala extracts and skins the day. That's what Allah subhanaw taala says beautifully, because as you see the night coming in, it's almost as if Allah subhanaw taala skinning

00:00:51--> 00:01:35

the day, and the night is coming in. So Allah says, that's another sign that's left woman on her for either home with the moon, then suddenly, when Allah azza wa jal skins the day for the night to arrive, then all of the world and all of humanity and everybody goes into darkness for either home mother the moon. So how is this a sign? Well, Allah subhanho wa taala, he takes this huge creature, basically, okay, you can call it a creature because it is a creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And that is the day or the night. And he takes the night, and he causes the day to come out of it. And he takes the day and he causes the night to come out of it. And then that process, it continues, and

00:01:35--> 00:02:18

it's been continuing on for centuries, and it will continue till the Day of Judgment. So this is a beautiful sign. For those who think the thing about this is that even though this is a sign, because we see it happening all the time, we've kind of lost touch with how powerful and grand of assign it is, you know, when you're trying to illuminate a small room right here, right now, as we're trying to set up to record, you have to make sure all the lighting is perfect, and everything is right. In order for you to do that. You have to have a lot of lighting, for everything to be just exactly the way you want it. If you want to turn on lighting in even a place that is, let's say 500 square feet,

00:02:19--> 00:02:59

you're talking about a place like that there's going to require a lot of light bulbs for you to make it happen. But Allah subhanho wa taala, just in a matter of 24 hours, he turns a light on completely for the entirety of humanity. And then he turns it off for another group of people. And that, that process, it continues to repeat itself. And it's been doing so for centuries on it. If you think about the power, you know, if you were to go outside and buy the strongest projectors of lights and you buy the strongest bulbs and you buy the strongest equipment, you're not going to be able to even light up, you know, with one bulb for instance, just a neighborhood. But Allah subhanaw taala has

00:02:59--> 00:03:35

made this the Hodge the one bulb for all of humanity and it lights up every single place in the world, if that's not a miracle, if that's not a sign of the of the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala then really, what what can be a sign of the power of Allah subhanaw taala and it happens every single time. Right? Some people may say, Well, you know, Mother Nature and this and that and the other but for it to happen so perfectly and every single time people who have intellect and people who ponder, they will be able to recognize that there must be someone behind all of this and there isn't, that's Allah and the fact that Allah can do that he can also bring you back to life just

00:03:35--> 00:03:48

ceases he brings a morning back to life after it dies from night and just as he takes the dead night and he brings it back to life through the light in the morning as well. Allah subhana wa Allah says was Shem SUTA God limo stalker real

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

and in the Sun

00:03:52--> 00:04:34

and the Sun runs to a a term that has been appointed on Orange axis which has been appointed by Allah subhanaw taala. So the sun rotates on a specific axis and everybody knows that, that the sun has a specific situation it remains when they're in the mood sticker in the hand. That's the phenomenon that Allah subhanaw taala is making reference to over here as well that the sun rotates on its axis Lemo stickering on a specific point, that he can tuck the ruler as easily Aleem that happens to be the decree of the one who is ever mighty and also ever wise and ever knowledgeable as well. So Allah subhanaw taala has ensured that the Sun Sun remains in one place. Now the fact that

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given knowledge to this of this 14 Centuries ago, that is, in and of itself a miracle. Because 14 Centuries ago, a person that's observing the sun will just see the sun coming out of one place and setting in another, you know, coming out of one direction and going down the other coming out of the east and going down in the West. That's all that could be seen by the naked eye.

00:05:01--> 00:05:27

But the reality is that it's more than that Allah subhanaw taala is telling us in the Quran, Allah has placed it in a specific situation. Allah has placed it on a mystical. And we know that the sun is literally on a specific axis and it remains there, but it rotates. Okay, the most Karela Valley, Keita cathedral as easily Aleem, and that is the decree of the one who happens to be ever mighty and ever knowledgeable as well. That's Allah

00:05:28--> 00:05:55

that he says will come up as for the moon, but there are no human as we have decreed specific situations for it, we have decreased, we have decreed specific phases for it as well. And those phases they continue until the moon goes back to the can or juvenile Kadeem until it goes back to an old date stock, okay, and an old deadstock literally has this curvy type of

00:05:56--> 00:06:32

angle to it's similar to when the moon happens to be in that phase as well. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala is describing over here. So Allah subhanaw taala when it comes to the moon, because the moon orbits, Allah doesn't say it's on a specific situation, or in a specific specific place as well. Rather Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Allah has made phases for the moon, and that's exactly what you observe. But with the with the sun, Allah subhanaw taala says Allah has placed it in a specific place. So there's a bit of a difference there. And that's totally in line with what we know today. And Allah subhanaw taala continues and he says less Shem Suyama Lila, and to the Nikhil

00:06:32--> 00:07:18

Kumar, it's not appropriate for the it's not befitting and this won't happen, that the that the sun ends up, ends up catching up to the moon and the and the night is not going to come before the day as well. Allah subhanaw taala has fixed a certain alarm, a certain pattern, Allah subhanaw taala has made a specific system for all of these things, and they have been continuing on within that system for centuries on him. You know, when we place a system even in like a board, when you place a system, even within a company, you have to make sure that that system is being followed and no matter how much you make sure the system doesn't get followed. But Allah subhanaw taala has created

00:07:18--> 00:07:57

these huge creatures and Allah has given them specific tasks and they do that ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah says that the sun is not going to catch up to the moon because we already know that the sun is actually not orbit orbiting in the same way that the moon is rather it's in a specific location and the moon is what is that which orbits right. So the sun will never end up catching catching up to the moon. That will never happen when a lady who saw the hara nor will the night come before the day. Meaning that you will never have night and day at the same time. One comes the other leaves well Kunal Luton fee fella Kenya spoon and this is one of the most beautiful things to wrap

00:07:57--> 00:08:35

up this entire miracle. And this right here in and of itself as a miracle actually, because Allah subhanaw taala says all of them are orbiting orbiting in a specific pattern, and they're all swimming in a specific pattern as well. They're all floating within a specific pattern. Now, the scholars who involve themselves within the language of the Quran, sometimes they talk about what they call an English a palindrome, okay? Now, palindromes are basically words or sentences that you can read. In the same way, no matter which way you read, if you start from the beginning or you start, start from the end, it will it will read the same. Sometimes ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has

00:08:35--> 00:09:16

palindromes within the Quran. But sometimes it can just be an occurrence. It's not a miracle. And what I mean by that is, if it were to be a miracle, meaning it's not humanly possible, that would mean that human beings cannot make up palindromes, but the reality is human beings can make a palindromes, right? So that means that palindromes are not intrinsically a miracle. But when placed, right, they are a rhetorical instrument that shows the power of the speaker for him to be able to use the right type of language and the right type of rhetoric and the right type of instrument in the right place. So look over here, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, We're Coolen, Phil, Phil Akin, he

00:09:16--> 00:09:20

has backbone, and all of them are floating and orbiting in the same way.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

And when you read gewoon, V falak, each one of them happens to be in the falak. They happen to be in orbit, they happen to be in the same pattern, and they happen to be in the same system. You can read that word both ways. So whether you read it this way, or you read it that way, it's the same pattern. Because when you when something orbits, it's the same pattern that it goes through again and again. So could learn from failure can be read both ways. And the fact that Allah made chooses to speak in this way over here, and he's actually referring to orbit as well, that put together constitutes something that is beyond human capacity and beyond human capability, that the language

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

is the same language but Allah subhanaw taala used it the most powerful of instrument right over here in this place in a way which which shows you the meaning in the way the words the letters have been written as well. I ask Allah subhana wa Allah to grant us the Tofik inability to be able to see the beauty within the language of the Quran and the beauty within the words of Allah subhanaw taala and the ability to appreciate what Allah subhanaw taala has to say. And moreover, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us the ability to recognize the miracles that Allah has placed within this Quran. The signs that Allah has placed within the universe Allahumma Amin was Allah Allahu ala
