Sooner hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hamdu lillahi. Hamdan, you are feeling I'm a whole you can feel OMA Zita or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad wa ala early. He was such a big Marine. Long I live NEMA and pharaoh now and founder of Bhima. Alam tena was in early mania Kareem Frobisher actually surgery recently embryo homeopathic melissani of Coco Kohli, of visiting your ailment or visit near ailment or visiting your Alma Allahu Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Who Salah wanted he has an either sheets or Salah brothers like always if I could ask you to come to the front here. It looks like the Halacha is all on this wall today.
Maybe I should come sit in front of you on that side. Maybe maybe easier. Okay.
Bye. Come on, come on. Don't be shy. It's okay.
Yeah, the young guys I mean
biological age versus actual age? Yeah.
we left off at verse number 163 With EDA, who comida who I'd like you to Haila who know him. Your Lord is One Lord. There is no god but him he is D. A Rahman he is the Ever Merciful. He is a Rahim he's the one who delivers his mercy as well. In if you have the summer well, it will

now, Allah subhanaw taala starts talking about his science. Because he said Your Lord is One Lord. So now Allah will give you some of his signs to believe in that one Lord. Allah says, Enough you help us somehow it will, indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth, work delightfully. And also in the interchanging of the day in the night. These are some of the signs of Allah azza wa jal, right? And if you notice, these are the signs of Allah azza wa jal when it comes to the cosmos and when it comes to the actual creations of Allah azza wa jal. So these are
what you could call scientific signs right? Now, is there something called the scientific miracle within the Quran? Is there a scientific miracle in the Quran?
I say this because, of course, all of us that grew through the 90s in the early 2000s, we all heard about the embryo and we all heard about all of the different signs that are in the Quran when it comes to the scientific miracle. But then we saw another stream of people, they started to go against this concept of the scientific miracle of the Quran, because there was so much
that some people had started to speak about in the Quran, from the scientific perspective that we saw another angle of people who are like, there's no science when it comes to the Quran, right? And this is an extreme where you take every single idea and you try to scientifically explain it. And there are complete DeviceID written on this particular direction,
after every single verse, or every verse capable of being scientifically explained, explained with a scientific theory, right? Don't bow your head, he is one example. Right? He's one of them with a city in Europe like this. And
and there are a number of them, but the idea is that this concept of
explaining the Quran through science became very prevalent. But then, when this prevalence happened, a group came in, they just denied the existence of science within the Quran pretty much, right? Quran is not a science book, it's a book of the Hadees a book of the reality is the truth lies between these two extremes. Okay. Quran
in its totality is not a book of science. But But does the Quran deal with science in some places? Does it allude to some scientific phenomenon within it? Yes, it does. So we have to then accept wherever Allah is alluding to some aspects of science over here. He's just hinting to it you go looking to it yourself, the cosmos, and he's looking at, you know, a few other things as well as we'll read in the verse but the idea is that
There is science within the Quran, but it is not in totality a book of science as well. So, we have to have two different things, we have to have one thing that is the seed,
Elmi scientific of seed.
And then we have to have another thing, which is a jazz really me, which is the scientific miracle.
When it comes to scientific Tafseer, you will see this within all the all the big encyclopedic books of Tafseer throughout history, you'll see some, you know, hints towards science, whatever science they knew, like 400 years ago, 700 years ago, etc, right? You will see that. So this is what they call it, the FSI to me, there is no problem in doing this. The problem becomes, and this was the problem that caused that reaction of there is no science in the Quran altogether. The problem becomes when people take any hint, that is scientific in nature within the Quran. And they take that and consider it a miracle even if that theory within science is a mere theory, because the theory is
subject to change tomorrow with changes and then what happens. Someone was trying to draw a parallel between a theory that is not a fact.
empirical in nature with the Quran when they drew that parallel and they called it a miracle, then tomorrow when this miracle no longer exists, because the scientific theory changed, someone is going to say I believe based on this, so I will reject based on this as well. So we say the way to do it is not to reject science altogether not to reject the existence of science in the Quran altogether. But the way to do it is to distinguish there's something called the CW mi when you're dealing with the Quran, there's def seed where you are, you know, because not everything that you use for the FSI not every tool used for the FC it has to be conclusive anywhere. We use a hadith as every Hadith
100% accurate, is every Hadith
guaranteed that this is 100% Even authentic a hadith are 100% they will be most of them, they will be not conclusive, they will be speculative. There's chance, yeah, I could say 99%. This is what the Prophet said. But there is a chance that there may be a mistake as well. This is what all of them will have defeated will agree, or most of them have defeated will agree when it comes to one near Hadith, or Hadith which are not considered conclusive. In nature. We use that same thing with lower linguistic instruments. There's disagreements among the linguists, but we use whatever theories that we agree with, and we employ them and understanding the Quran that stuff See, similarly, when it
comes to science as well we can employ it and understanding the Quran. But we cannot say that this is a miracle unless two things come together. Number one, the Quran is speaking conclusively. Number two, the theory is no longer a theory it's become a fact. But it was not known at the time of the prophets and salam to be a fact. When those two things come together, then you have a miracle. Why? Because the Quran foretold something that was later to become a fact.
The understand, in Nephi, Hulka, Samoa at will work the laffy Layli will no harm. Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, the heavens and the earth, ie the universe in totality.
There's there are signs, not a sign, there are many signs, and Allah is leaving it up to you to pursue go learn cosmology, see what signs there are within the heavens and the earth, while the laughing lady will one now and also in the interchanging of the day and the night.
That's a sign that we see all the time. This is a very magnificent sign, by the way, right? But the thing is, when we are used to something, we see it so often we forget that it's a sign. Otherwise, if you really think about it,
every single day is essentially a sign when the sun comes out. I mean, if you think about it, how much electricity does it take to light up this place? Quite a bit. How many bulbs does it take to light up this place quite a bit as well. But still, if you look at the top in the corner there, there's still some darkness and up there, there's a little bit of darkness as well. Up there. There's and this is a very small space.
The sun comes out it illuminates everything. It gives light to everything and there is no corner and there is no space that the sun can reach except that it becomes illuminated except that it becomes enlightened completely.
And this is happening on a daily basis but we don't notice this. That's the power of the line trend that Allah has created. So Allah is saying what the laughy lady we're not and also the darkness as well. There's so much light out
Without anything shading,
right without any thing, shading the naked eye can at least see the sunsets and the darkness begins to come again.
And that cycle persists while full kilometer Jerry Phil Baja. And also the ships that sail within the ocean be Mayan Pharaoh NASS. Specifically those ships that sail with things that benefit the humanity. Now, this is obviously talking about cargo ships here, right? The reason why it's specifically allies, making reference to cargo ships of all things, is because if you think about it, you could take a coin and you could throw it into the water, what happens? It sinks right to the bed.
And how much does it weigh a few grams. Then you have a cargo ship that literally weighs 200 and at least 220,000 tons.
And it goes on water. It's the same substance it's water. It's if you were to take a coin right next to that ship and and throw it it would also seem to the waterbed. But this cargo ship that weighs so much not the regular boats and not the yachts and not the Titanic, this is a cargo ship, it's a lot more heavier than everything else because Allah says the man in fairness is carrying things that are that are beneficial to people, but he can sail and sail and kilometers on in and sail the entire globe.
And who's doing that who's allowing this water the same water that makes a coin that is so light sink, a human being also sink anything that falls within it sink but Allah had created and programmed this water to be such that certain shapes just do not sink
and they're perfect for sale as well.
So Allah says wonderful kilotons reveal the hell this ship that you see also sailing within the ocean the Mayan fairness with everything that's beneficial there in one unzila Allahu Amina sama and whatever Allah sends down of water from the heavens as well for be Hill Allah bad mot. Ha and then he brings back the earth to life after it was dead.
barren land goes to life.
Just because there's water that's coming down from the heavens. Well, bethey Herman colada, and Allah has caused within this earth many creatures to be scattered, every tip different type of creature to be scattered as well. What does city fear? Yeah. And the drifting of the clouds as well because clouds are themselves very heavy clouds carry a very large amount of water within them. And they themselves are a very unique creation of Allah azza wa jal, and they are able to carry so much water within them. The water doesn't fall except when Allah azza wa jal chooses for that water to fall in when Allah allows for that cloud to cause the rain to happen. But people can go in and out
of these clouds in the plains all the time.
And, but they're still carrying the water is not falling. It's not like there's a physical barrier that stopping from the water to falling. It's just how Allah has made these clouds. So the clouds themselves are also a sign of Allah azza wa jal and Musa herba in a scenario and the ones that happen to be between the heavens and the earth. Yeah, it likoni. Yeah, they don't. All of this has signs for people who have intellect because people who do not have intellect, even if you bring them 1000 signs they're not going to accept. So signs are going to be fear for people that have intellect, people that have intelligence, and that intelligence has to be not just any intelligence,
it has to be intelligence that is purified of preconceived notions. We have to clean our intelligence of preconceived notions, without which you're not going to be able to come into Islam.
There are people that are granted signs, they're given those signs right? Before them, they understand them as well. But they have some preconceptions, these preconceptions block them from coming into the faith and this is why in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal
in the noun form he only refers to when he talks about the intellect, he refers to the Al Bab. He refers to the no ha it refers to other words, but not the upper because the lobe is a an intellect that is purified from preconceived notions
it's purified from preconceived notions
while yet that Cara Ahlul l BB, so that those people who have it
intellect not only recall those people who have intellect it's purified meaning. Don't come into the Quran with prejudices don't come into the Quran with preconceptions don't come into the Quran with ideologies that you already have and you want to use them to try to understand the Quran come to the Quran, with a pure and clean slate. That's when the Quran will give itself to you.
Allah subhana wa Tala continues and he says Wamena Nursey Mia Duffy the woman Dhoni Allah He and dad from the people are those that end up taking equals to Allah azza wa jal other than Allah. They bring about equals and dad.
You hipbone at home get her biller and Dadon
equals or similars okay as a bass explained that night and that then is ashba you hipbone at home care her Billa they love them, just as they love Allah, or they love them, just as the Muslims love Allah azza wa jal, okay?
Two possibilities, they love them just as they love Allah and that's probably the most likely
explanation they love them just as they love Allah because they associate partners with Allah azza wa jal.
They believe in Allah, the kuffaar of Quraysh they believed in Allah Most polytheists Dare I say all polytheists believe in a God who is
And then they believe in gods who are
under that supreme
are very similar or very close to that Supreme.
Do you understand? Within most forms of polytheism, you will find that eventually even that policy is the one who's worshipping multi Gods right? He will go and end up at some specific god who is considered the supreme or the elite, and they use these other gods to try to get to that elite and supreme Right, exactly how the Moshe the king of Quraysh were doing. They believed in Allah as a being, but they also believe that
there are all these idols that bring them closer to Allah azza wa jal. So that's why Allah says you hipbone at home, they love them get her Billa just as they love Allah azza wa jal, so they, the fact that you believe in Allah is not sufficient. You have to disbelieve in all the other gods as well. If you have love for Allah, that's great. That's one aspect of the equation but there's another aspect and that's you have to delete every one else out of your life that you deify.
Your buena homecare biller while living in Amman Oh as for those who believe I should do hope Balilla they're even more severe in their love for Allah. Because the people who are polytheists and the people who disbelieve in Allah azza wa jal as well. They call out to Allah alone in occasions where they really feel like they have no other options, right? When they go into the ships, and they see the tidal waves of the ocean. What do they do? There are hola hola, hola, Sina Hadid. They call out to Allah azza wa jal, and now they're sincerely calling out to Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.
So they are calling out to Allah in these circumstances as for those who believe they are calling out to Allah alone,
in times of trials, and in times of ease, because they don't believe in any word, but Allah azza wa jal, so they're stronger in their love for Allah than those who associate partners with Allah. Because those people they only call out to Allah alone, when they really are neat. That's where the people who believe they are more
loving of Allah azza wa jal. They love Allah. In the times of trial they call out to Allah alone and sincerely in the times of trial, but also in the times of ease as well. When we are living in a world Mo is your own Elijah and Quwata illa he Jaime Hmm. When Allah Shetty doula.
Allah continues and he says, If only the transgressors could see this horrible punishment. When would this horrible punishment happen and how is it Allah paints him? He says in your honor.
When they will see the other
when they will see themselves being punished, okay?
Because Allah is saying if only
East transgressors, get an image or get a window into the hereafter and see how they will be punished because of their association of partners with Allah azza wa jal, they would stop because now they see it. They see it clearly with their own eyes is your own Elijah Anil Quwata, lillahi Jemmy. That point they would have discovered or they will discover and if they saw they would have discovered another portal Elahi Jimmy, all power ultimate power belongs to Allah alone And Allah is Ever severe in the tournament as well. People keep repeating ALLAH for him, the lie also has tournament as well and Allah shady to reserve and this is, by the way, a theme in the Quran in
Know that Allah is referred to him. And he's also very severe in his torment as well.
multiple places in the Quran, Allah reminds people to be reminded of this concept, remember, Allah is this and Allah is that as well, when Allah has shady
and Allah is very severe in his torment. Allah is very severe in his punishment. And they and if they only saw also another thing as well. What's the other thing they saw themselves being punishment were punished.
And if they saw another thing as well is Devo Lavina, to be roaming Alladhina, Tebow in their lives, they were following leaders were misleading them. And they were Miss guiding them and they were taking them off of the right path, if they only saw these very leaders that they were following. This owning the followers. So anyone who is followed in misguidance, on the Day of Judgment, they end up this owning
You can have a leader in this world and that leader is leading you to misguidance Sure. And he's going to save you from all of the pitfalls of this world because he has that leadership skills and talents or whatever, right?
Especially oppressive rulers think about it. People ended up falling into the trap of being led by oppressive rulers. Why? Because they feel a sense of security. They don't want to be on the receiving end of this oppression. So they say, Let's just follow right? Okay, that's fine. But Allah says those people who were followed on the Day of Judgment, they will be disowning the followers. They will say these followers, they don't belong to me. It's Deborah livina, Toby who Mina Lavina tetherpro, those who were followed, they ended up disowning the followers, well, I will adapt and all of them see the punishment, what the Kochba are to be human is Bob and the bonds that were
holding these people together whatever will worldly reasons there were for them to be held together, they will be cut off, they will be severed, they will be
they will be cut completely. At that point what Takata has to be him will as Bob Now if you are following for a reason or another because you felt a sense of security because everybody else is doing it, because it was the fat because you had the fear of losing out with what is going on in the world? Well, guess what? On the Day of Judgment, the leaders will disown you. And all of the reasons that you had to follow them, they will no longer exist anymore. What occurred to me he will so
I want you to extend this. I want you to extend this to every different type of leader.
I mean, this is really something that you need to stop at.
people end up falling prey
that I own was a leader.
He was a leader, powerful leader. He had all of the leadership talents if you know the Coptic people, there are a very difficult people. They're not an easy group of people to deal with.
Abu Jehanne was a leader.
In our times, we have seen various leaders who are tyrannical, they're very powerful.
And people end up falling these leaders following these leaders and they blindly follow these leaders and they end up
committing severe sins because of leaders. Why? Because most people do not have a strong personality. Most people do not have this
sense of self. Most people, they're just afraid they're a bunch of flock. Most people don't have a mind that they used to think with. And even if they do, they end up letting other people control that mind as well.
So if you allow people within this world, to be the people who control your mind, at the end of the day, when the day of judgment comes, they're not going to be there any longer. And they will be disowning you the bagua Levina to Bureau minute lives in Attleboro, and everybody will be equal in punishment. And that's why an intelligent person is not going to be following these leaders, he's not going to be following people in misguidance, he's not going to be basically appeasing to people, and messing himself up within this world, because leadership comes and goes, we've seen that time and again,
but Daffy was a leader who led with the iron fist.
Very strong man.
I had met a lot of Libyans
prior to all of these problems that happened in Libya.
And if you hear the stories of the Libyan people,
and you hear their sorrow and their grief, you will only then begin to understand what this person would do within his country.
Where is he today?
There was a time where that Iron Fist finished, he could no longer maintain hold and stronghold of his country. He was considered one of the greatest leaders of Africa. He used to consider himself basically the king of Africa. Right?
The emperor, he had massive amounts of wealth, billions, hundreds of billions of dollars, in some estimations, the most the richest and wealthiest man to have walked the face of this earth, probably after Elon Musk No, right. But that is the case. But with all that wealth, and all that power, and all of that
the force, you know, this person was so afraid that he would not even go through a surgical procedure with anesthetics because he was afraid that that doctor is not going to be faithful to Him and loyal to him. It's his own doctor, but because he's done so many crimes, he's afraid. He's fearful.
I mean, whatever happened and he died and he finished his life, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to have his mercy on him because even a tyrannical leader at the end of the day, can be a recipient of the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, who knows maybe at the end of his life, he sought forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal knows, we don't know. But the idea that I'm trying to get to is at the end of the day, all of those people that helped this man in his tyranny
because they were afraid themselves.
If they see a man like this on the Day of Judgment,
he's going to dishonor. He doesn't want to have all of the evil that he has done, or other people have done in his name, to also be on his slate, he's going to say, whatever. And you can see that at a micro level, you can see that at a macro level, you can see that at a societal level, you can see that even within your household, sometimes it's a, it's a very micro thing as well. You might have a person within your family who is a tyrannical human being. And just because you don't want to be subject of that tyrant, he was saying, You know what, better to stay out of this guy's face, and you see some someone being harmed, and you don't do anything about it.
He's the leader of the family.
I'm not telling everybody to start revolting against their fathers and mothers and so forth. But my point is that sometimes you have to stop even if it's a father, and even if it's a mother,
right? Even if it is, whoever it may be, any person can start to become tyrannical.
Allah subhanho wa Taala continues, and he says, we'll call a Levine the barrow. And those people who followed, they said, Lo AnnaLena, Carrolton. So first, the people who were followed, they
spoke, and now those people who followed themselves, they were the ones who were the followers. They said, No, and Elena Cudworth. And if only I had an opportunity to return all of these people who obeyed and followed people entirely misguidance in oppression, in disbelief, whatever it may be, sometimes it's even disbelief every all of the people that lead in mischief, whatever sort of mischief that may be. We'll call a Lavina turbo and Elena Carlota. And if only we had the opportunity
To return back fernet who I mean whom. So if only we had that opportunity to return back to this world, we would also disown them in this world. We would say we don't want to follow these people because on the Day of Judgment, they're going to disown us combat Ebola or midnight just as they disown us within this world within the hereafter. Katha Lika Urim Allahu Allah has a rotten Haleem just like that Allah makes all of their actions, a source of remorse. What does this mean? They are being remorseful about this specific abstraction, and that is them following leaders that are
that are misleading them. This is a source of remorse for them. But just like that every other action will also become a source of remorse for them as well. Well now home Behati Jean Amina not and when they are entered into the fire, now this is obviously specifically dealing with people who follow
those who mislead others.
Away from belief, not just other things, right. People can mislead in many ways, those who mislead and in ways that leads out of faith. They are the ones who will be in the Hellfire along with the people who are lead as well. So Allah says warmer whom Bihari Jean Amina Nam, and these people will never come out of the Hellfire there will always remain there in forever. And now I stop over here and talk about what I spoke about last week.
The gentleman who believes that when the fire vanishes,
people who are inside of the fire they will be taken out of the fire and put her digit Jana. What does Allah say? Well now home Bihari Jean Emina now, they're not coming out of the fire they're staying there in.
Does it sound like they'll be taken out of the fire? No, they're gonna stay they will be there. This is the thing this is why Allah azza wa jal in the Quran, what he does is he speaks about every issue in so many different ways. Lusardi fool ayat, Allah takes the verses, and he puts them and phrases them in different ways because every person of howa of misguidance and of desires, they will take some verse and they will try to manipulate it. So all this really means this. But then what about the next one? How do you explain that one? And what about the one over here? How do you explain this one? But when you put everything in context, now you start to see No, no, no, they're not coming out
of the fire. In the case that the fire is extinguished, it will never be extinguished, according to most of the scholars of Islam. Right. But in the case that that does happen, which again is it shouldn't even be considered an acceptable view because of how clear the verses of the Quran are on this issue.
But the idea is they're not going to come out of the fire even according to that opinion. That claim talked about at the end of his book, had an ROI in which he himself said if we if it does extinguish they're not coming out of the fire they are going to be extinguished with the fire as well. Well my home Behati Gina Mina not and they will not exit the fire I asked Allah subhanaw taala to save us from the fire and ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us Jana and make that our final and first abode after we leave this world with some of Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he was referred to here Jemaine
