Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah but a catch him in the Peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all. You know, what's one important characteristic of Allah subhanho wa Taala one name is Aladdin. And I personally think that this name is very important when we speak to children. When we speak to non Muslims, we speak to anyone. It's a universal characteristic that is good to start with, when talking to people about the Creator. When we talk about predestination, you know, predestination people may have a problem with Why would God allow bad things to happen, quote, unquote? Well, we should ask Firstly, if they believe in a God, and if they do, understanding that
the characteristic of God is knowledge, but then let's get a little deeper. Is it possible to say or is it make sense or is it right, or godly? To say that God does not know that
if we believe in a deity and he has all power, and he has, he is perfect, that means he's perfect within his names and attributes from them his knowledge? So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in chapter number six, verse number 59, in the eighth juice of the Quran, where he says up there will be lamina shaped by energien, where in the Home Affairs layout in level, well, yeah, Animal Man feels very well behaved. He starts off by saying, and with him, are the keys to the unseen no one knows except Him. And He knows what is in on land, and in the seat.
Well matter school to me what's in La nemaha, and not a leaf falls from a tree except that he knows it. Well, I have betin Fie, lomatium ld and no grain in the darkness of the earth, that is in the depths of the darkness of the earth, without autoban whether Yeah, bissen elaphiti tabin moving, whether that grain is moist or dry, except that is in a clear book, a clear clarified book. So Allah is mentioning here, his extensive knowledge, and this is only some examples he gives, that Firstly, he says the rule, look, he only he is the one that knows the unseen, no one knows except him, then he gives you a small example of things that you may know, in things that you may realize that you
know, within yourself, you'd have no knowledge of, of a grain that is in the Earth right now. Is it dry? Is it moist, you have no idea, you have no idea if a leaf is falling outside, from a tree right outside of your house, if a tree was behind you, if a plant was behind you, you don't know the situation of the plant, except that you have to go and look at it. The knowledge of these things simultaneously, all at the same time. A loss kind of dalla is aware of it, and he knows it. So firstly, when we look at predestination, understanding the knowledge of a lot he knows what was what is what will be and what hasn't been hypothetically, if it was to be how it would be. The knowledge
of a lot is of that that's his knowledge. So when you predestined something that is only appropriate for the one that has all knowledge. And then we also look at the extent of his knowledge by giving No, no there's no limit to his knowledge, but he gives us these examples to show that we have no comparison to him. And thoroughly he confirms that there is a prescribed tablet tablet, that all of this is in something called a low hand map of the prescribed tablet. So the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala as all of his names and attributes are perfect, endless, no flaw within them. So me Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that understand the extent of his knowledge, except what
he chooses, based on his knowledge and wisdom. And might, me Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that when we think of that, and we ponder over that. It increases us in our Amen. A sin I want to live a better castle. Thank you
