Vienna Muhammad Ali he also has mainly been an aid in sha Allah to Allah We continue from where we left off last week and that of sila SUTA. Throughout the verses tonight are very dear to me, I love them a lot. They were very,
I remember being younger and reading them and listening to their to see it appropriately in the taking some time and they were eye opening for me on multiple levels. And as you grew up, you remember certain things that you learned and how they affected you and how they kind of opened your your eyes and your eyes of your mind, let's say, to understanding certain things. And definitely social work as one of those eye openers. It's a powerful, powerful tool. It's filled with descriptions and realities. And then in the midst of of the sutra that talks about
the choice, it's offering you again all of these sorts of coffee will just offer comparisons just choices either What do you want, we want to do you can do this so that you can be a person of righteousness with a person and a falsehood, you can have purpose they can live aimlessly, you can have guidance or you can walk around with with no guidance at all you can build your life on uncertainty and authentic knowledge or you can walk around with whims and desires and whatever else you want to be it whatever else you want to build your your life on you can you can be thankful to your your to the blessings Allah give you or you can lose them you can be thankful or you can end up
being a candidate backfiring against you.
What type of person do you want to be you want to be as clean you want to feel as how big a me want to be as high Mishima this is all up to you. You have to you have to make these choices. And so to work out is is basically bringing you to that piece to throw him off. He has one more, one more, one more choice that we're going to talk about how to use is amazing. It's yeah, I will I get excited about it. It's a lot of fun when we come to because because the comparison is actually extremely, extremely interesting and very profound. But superlock is telling you here's the three types of people. Here's the comparison, what do you want to make your choice be who you are. And that's all a
sutra does at the beginning in the middle at the end, but right in the right like just before the end, it's just page here, this this third page that kind of breaks off a little bit and focuses on it doesn't talk about the comparison anymore. Let's talk about the three groups because we're gonna talk about the three groups again, but at the end of it, but right now here we're gonna read verses that are extremely philosophical, just just extremely philosophical almost trying to make the argument for you of why it is you should be a part of one of the two initial groups it's like so to work as not only giving you the comparison, here's the three groups and where they go. But here's
why you should be them. Here's here's a good reason for you to definitely choose the first or second group and not be a part of the third and yeah, and I think I think I think sometimes we're just like okay, sometimes we require a little bit of a convince a little bit of convincing to kind of make the right choice and I want to start with you in solid reciting was a number 57 in the sutra which I stopped specifically purposefully last time there so that we were able to read from there inshallah towards probably till the end of the page, maybe a word or two after the end of the page. So that next time we can just focus on the final comparison in the Surah but as we go through the Michelle,
you'll find them to be very, very interesting. We begin with a number 57 will be lay him in a shape on your body
Bismillah hir rahman al Rahim.
Now I know holla corner can follow to the moon
so this is the verse that is going to anchor the rest of those verses that are going to come after it thing we created you. It's unclear why it is you don't want to believe that are you refusing to accept that that's fellow learning for Lola Lola in the Quran.
Means what you should have done was the following follow like to follow the pony what you should have done is you should have believed that the the point is to believe depending on
It was important and I suck. But the reason that you're not getting up, even though you're saying that is because there's something else you haven't dealt with, there's something down there. Just dig deep yucky just just to peel away some of the onion layers. And you'll find inside there a problem of conviction of belief, not just weakness, not just lust, not just desire and whims. There's something else, which is what these students which is what these these beautiful verses talk about. You want to be of has hillbilly Amin, you want to actually be a Serbian from the Serbian Yes, then you need to have full conviction that Allah subhanaw taala. And only Allah created you and made
you the way you are. And that conviction has to be a fertile full degree full level certainty. There cannot be any doubts. There cannot be something deep down inside, where you're like, I want to be sure but I'm kind of not there yet. I don't Yeah, well, that's why that's why that's why you can't get this done. Because the part of you dig inside that doesn't feel that way yet. And until you feel that you're not going to be able to practice the way you want to practice. You have to deal with that piece first. That's why these two are that are mucky, are filled with issues of belief that they only talk about Iman and talk that they that's why they don't talk about
open a actually the way I know as Torah is Mackey from Madani is whether it talks about filco or not because no Methuselah talks about that. No McKees who talks about salah or wudu or cm or Zika or Hajj or says yeah, you're Latina, ermine, oh, yeah, Atmel Kitabi, or any of that stuff, because those are all practical issues. Those are issues of day to day behaviors, trying to figure out rituals and how to deal with things that have happened relationships with other faiths and in our relationships amongst Muslims.
The Matthew sewers are focused on your convictions, because if you can build them up to the point where you have certainty, then you'll be fine. The moment you build them up where you have that full certainty, then everything else just starts working out. Because you know that about yourself. Once you're really passionate about something. Once you really believe something's important, no one can stop you
Nothing can stop you. Nothing can stop you from pursuing what you want to do once you are fully in it invested in it. Because you know yourself, once you're invested in something, once you've, you're ready, that's it, your parents can talk to you, they can talk to your friends, no one's going to stop you from doing what you want to do. Because you have full conviction of it's important. So for some reason, your belief is this is what I have to do. So why is it that we're not being the best Muslims we can be, and we're not dedicating our lives and we're not committed, because there's something down, there's something now you can figure it out, or you can just let it fester there for
a long time, I can guarantee you that it won't sit down quietly, it will slowly grow, it will grow, it'll eat all of the good things that are around it, unless you did deal with it and get rid of and that's, and that's what rock does. All type of right does not sit around and just behave itself quietly, it'll, you know, metastatic cancer, it doesn't sit there. If you could sit there, then I'll be you wouldn't need me. I could be I would happily be out of a job. By the way, I'd be one of the I'm the only person on the world that I would love not to have a job, I would love my job to be completely removed. I'll drive Uber No problem. I'll start today, if my if we could get rid of it.
But it keeps it just keeps on growing and it eats everything around it. Can you let something like that exists inside of you, it's hard to get rid of this is what these verses are going to talk about. They're going to ask direct questions, they're gonna force you to think and force you to answer. And once you actually if you look at it, it's funny, right? Because it'll come out. We're all questions. But Hillman would declare Welaka yesterday I think if a human would decade Well, minimum decade four or five times. So the rationale was just frenzy of questions maybe 30 or 30 times a year it'll be compared to the man tell me which of the guy who guides bounties Do you refuse
to to acknowledge or do you deny or do you not want to show gratitude for it tell me which of the which of them asked time and time again. So to walk out here towards the end is also a couple of questions, questions that once you answer you'll have clarity because you'll know what to do and without those answers aren't clear yet then you'll you'll continue to struggle so what we're saying is all of these verses and it's for
it's for paragraphs or four sections, these verses are where you can ask for questions to ponder what data points for major questions for four basic things that we all agree to. So it will start in show without
FL E to M to noon
to the Hulu Now who am national Holly Moon
national Delnor Nakoula moot
woman new Bemis movie in
de la la goon
when she can FEMA darlin
while earning to moon Nash, tell Gula.
the first section he says, For a tune to noon, you see the liquid that comes out of the men and a woman that ends up later on turning into a full human being, you see that small liquid that comes out of you? And Tom takuna? Who are you're the one? Are you the one who actually goes there and causes it to become a human being? Are you the one who takes that liquid and is capable of commanding it and deriving it and, and moving at one step after the other? So it turns into a functioning human being? Or is your contribution, nothing more than actually just introducing two bodies of liquid together and hoping for the best? And to Punahou, you're the ones who actually
cause it to be Have you ever seen it? If you haven't done that, by the way, you should definitely go on YouTube and do it go in and watch the way because they have no they have it in amazing 3d depth where they can show you exactly how the you know, when the viola meets the sperm and it turns slowly into a human being they show you exactly how the cells begin to differentiate and move one part of the other and the SOC begins and how slowly they the the cells emigrate from one part of the body to another causing a little bit of a rift in the middle and then that's that's where the spine is going to be. And then they move and you when you watch these cells, basically just start doing things fell
just one cell we have no idea why that cell has any has. It doesn't look any different than any other cell. The components are pretty much the same. They've taken it they've looked at it, same thing they call the stem cell now but we don't even know exactly why it's a stem cell. We just know it is and they know exact
What to do, these cells immediately start to move in two directions, they start to form and they start making what's going to be you other cells that are exactly the same are just going to become the placenta, exactly the same cell, they just basically split off each other one of them is going to become a piece of material that will grant blood and then be flushed off once the lady gives birth and throw it in the garbage. The other thing is going to come you is gonna come complete human being now how exactly am I gonna? Who he's asking? You see the liquid that you put? Do you create it? You're the one who makes it become a national xylophone? Or do we do it?
He's not, hello, Donna trying to make life complicated for you. Actually, he's making it extremely simple.
Since all you do is just introduce things to each other, and they work on their own, you are forced as a human being to ask the question, Who exactly is making sure that these things happen? Like, where did where did the Where did the process of this come from? Now, science doesn't take away the answer. Science just gives you a more detailed answer. This is the fallacy by the way, that that science that science certain scientists try to bring for religion. And this is a huge problem today, because we don't know the difference between science and philosophy anymore. The science does not tell you that it's not God. Science explains in more detail how it happens. That all it's doing is
it is telling you, we still don't know why they do it. And we still have no idea that we still are not in charge of that the woman does not sit there. And he programming the cells and explain to them what to do. He doesn't spend nine months trying to the man has no the man is contribution is pathetic in the whole thing. But the woman definitely has nothing to do. She just sits it just grows. It could grow into anything. And you would have nothing to say about it. Like you wouldn't know any better. If you gave birth to a rabbit, you still like oh, that's what came out. I don't know, we don't have the ability. It's not like you do something and then it comes out in certain
waves do something else comes out differently. It just that's how they're programmed. So the question is, so take a look at this at the simple liquid, which is the end, which is why we're here. Let's say that liquid stops working. Let's say you take the liquid and you take the you take a sperm, and you put it in an opulent and then nothing happens. We just, it doesn't lock up and start to the DNA strands don't break off and then kind of bond and then you have two strands, and then they start to break. They don't do that anymore. They just they just sit there looking at each other, nothing happens. What are you going to do? Go ahead, what are you gonna do? You're gonna
convince them and talk them into it. I'm gonna bring in the UN un maybe bring someone to negotiate, there's nothing to do if they're not going to do it. If they stopped for somehow for some reason, they stopped working. It just stopped working. You have no control over this zero within one generation all the human race with wiped up completely, no one's left. Because you have no control over this. All you do is just a simple action that every other creature on the planet does, then how would actually move forward is something completely outside of your ability to do? Yes, sir. As medicine gets more advanced, we figure out more things and we can learn more things and we can help
you the process become easier and we can watch out for problems. But at the end, why it happens. And the fact that it just happens is not something even science is willing to discuss. Because that's the good that has to happen. What do you mean, it doesn't happen anymore? What do you mean that these two liquids will stop interacting? No, that's not we're not going to discuss that we're going to discuss what happens if there's a few abnormalities within the DNA and the strands or if there's a few mutations that we can take care of to make sure the person comes out healthy. But if it just stops working, there's there's nothing to do and come down to Cornell you created a national holiday
home or we're the ones who create this national park down being in a cool remote. Well, man absolutely must mean we're the ones who have decreed. We have predestined death for all of you. Well, my national we must walk in and no one can beat us to taking your life when it's time to take your life.
We're the ones who create the moment that they meet were the ones who allow the creation to continue to become a breathing thinking, comprehending cognitive human being and we're the ones who decreed that that human being has an expiry date stamped on every organ inside of him or her and a date a moment will come where that person will expire and will die. Well man, we must do think nothing can beat us to that.
Either an Uber dealer in 30 seconds we can tell continues to explain not beating to what I learned no bad data and went on Shere Khan female toddler Moon is a scary verse. As the no one can beat us we decreed death for all of you are gonna die. And no one can beat us to actually replacing you know, but the LAM telecom to completely replacing you as a race your human race. Why are you continuously here because these two liquids once they meet something happens, something that the closest
I don't think you need like I don't think our generation of human beings require like miracles like I don't think there's a need for us for a prophet to be here you know with a magic wand or a shadow zapping thing so people can believe just look at this now we have the ability to look in and we can see something that is as close actually it's more impressive than a miracle you ever see honestly you haven't done it yet do it if you haven't actually watched the process go watch it
go let them show you exactly and 3d how this actually happens because the you'll just sit there saying is upon Allah this is it? No, we can barely understand it. Well lucky we can barely understand it till this day where you barely have just basic comprehension of what's going on in there. So it seemed to punt on we created it we decreed death no one will beat us if we wanted to take you and replace you want to share confirm Allah Allah moon and then take your life and filter it or channel it into something that you don't understand anymore something different meaning this soul this this comprehension this mind this consciousness which is me is being filtered through this
body that I have this is what I got. This is not me I didn't do a very good job in holding on to it but this is what I got. This is what I've been so this is how my consciousness has been projected out to the world he thinks the panel data it's very easy for me to take you
substitute at all and then filter your consciousness with into something you don't even understand
you could have easily not come out as a human being you could have been something different you could have been a different creation altogether it takes nothing from it no one can beat me to take you replace you and then filter your consciousness and do something different you could be could be a rock he may Allah Tala moon in something you don't even understand. You don't even know about it or even know what Allah says it is exactly what you say I'm not making this up. This is not sci fi. This is what I was gonna say I could have taken you replaced you and filtered your consciousness into something you don't understand you never heard of before. Who can beat him?
No one. This is Allah subhanaw taala this could be whatever he is, this is who I am and who you are. This consciousness that we
we enjoy and we were a part of is just just because Allah subhanaw taala has granted us that that's it here. Here's the gift. Enjoy. Pretty good. It's pretty cool. You have you know, there's a lot of perks to this. There's a lot of perks to being just a functioning human being. Well, of course human beings are never there's never enough. So we don't like that we'd like to be called with video games where you know, you want to hear otherwise more stuff. You can do more things we'd like we don't like the fact that we can't fly or we can't read underwater or that we can't move at the speed of light or whatever we want to have more than we do. But what if you get rid of all that Diani crazy
stuff? Just Just the fact that what we have right now is pretty damn good. This is extremely impressive. Considering that all your you contributed to it was just two bodies of liquid
combining and then your sat back and
hope that it worked. What do you think they do when they do like people can be people who struggle with having children may Allah grant them all children insha Allah Tala those who struggle with it, when they go to the, to the clinics, what do you think they do? Just take the two liquids and introduce them to each other a bit better. That's all it's just a more like formal introduction, really, that these harvest the eggs and the harvest that's meant here, get to know each other, please do this better, because for some reason, physically, physiologically, or biologically just not happening properly within the within the womb, so they do it, they can't touch it, they don't do
All of the technology is just it's okay. Okay. And for some reason, this is not working, the sperm isn't strong enough, we'll insert it right into the egg.
But still, if they decide that they're not going to do what they do, if the dance, it's actually it's beautiful, but there's no single strand of DNA. It's a dance, it's amazing. It's just it's mind blowing how these just they, they twirl around each other. It's like this harmony, making, you're making a human being the single strand of DNA just just coming in and just twirling around each other and then breaking off into two and they just, it just just happens. Why is that happening?
Why evolution understand why? I understand that? Of course. That's why though, where did it come from? why did why why is this program to do this? Why are these? Why are these proteins programmed to behave like this? Where did that come from? How did they How could they possibly figure this out? I don't think you can error. No, there's not enough error within the vicinity or within the vastness of the universe for them to figure this out on their own. This is something way beyond that. So he's telling you, I created you.
And I decreed that anytime I want no one can beat me to replace you and filter your consciousness in something different that you understand what I am doing. When you know that you came from a background that you cannot come
Rent a niche at an all at the first coming the first existence the first creation and Nisha is when something is coming up from the ground something that is slowly actually growing so you know what the first growth the growth of all life on the planet you know that part you were able to figure it out that this is for now so why is it is so hard for you to imagine that just like it came out the first time around, you'll come up the second time around. Why Why is it okay what why you're able why why are we able to comprehend the first round of creation or existence but we can't comprehend that this is going to happen again.
But hola to the karoun
again, follow that same. So there's no reason for you not to be able to reflect on that that course is reflection is comprehension and it's contemplating
what you should do is you should contemplate this piece you should reflect on it quite a bit. You didn't control where you came from.
It's way beyond you in many many ways you and I sit here we don't we can't control that piece it happened why is it so hard for us to imagine that it happens again?
The same force that brought us here the first time can't bring us here a second.
Why? Because we we start to understand a little bit more of how the process actually works. Again, the there's no it never fails to impress me. The the level of arrogance The human being has, it's never it will never disappoint you never it'll never disappoint the level of arrogance the human being as an amazing human being looks around and can barely understand anything and then he figures out one thing he figures out one thing to one equation, one interaction between two elements and suddenly they denounce God altogether. lt
why so quick? Why so quick?
Because knowledge is powerful. It's a powerful tool. The moment you're given knowledge and feel it's a powerful thing. Imagine imagine the one who knows all
imagine the omniscience subhanho wa Taala
that's the first one that's the first question or a term used that you create it you're the one who allowed it to become life. No.
Okay, let's go to the second one. Fly a tune
tune test our owner who knows very
low Nasha ledger
so watch out for the lamb no Nisha, oh ledger and now because in a moment we're going to read verses verses very similar but without the lamb after it so just kind of keep pay attention that they're a little bit different for one tone deaf Becca Hoon
in Ireland more often
Bella Norma Hone
second question. You see that what you saw the house is when you go and you so whatever it is that you came out of the ground like the crops are there so you're going to go into a house you're going to go and sold them you're going to take them in I'm going to harvest the the the crops fra to see what the the crops that you're harvesting
and to Tesla owner who is Zara is the action of making a seed turn into a plant that bears something that is edible. Alright, that's what Zara means. That's the actual meaning of it within the dictionaries. So he's asking subhanaw taala
you're the ones who make make the seed turn into a plant that bears edibles. I'm not going to Azaria are we do or do we do that? He's talking about subhanaw taala is the royal we obviously as you know in every language that the royal the royal we exists, and it also means similarly within Arabic and within Islamic law that Allah Subhan is talking about himself and all of those who follow him follow His command I need a flawlessly without any argument meaning all his angels and the other because we don't flawlessly we tend sometimes not to listen. So he's asking or you're the one. So think about it, you take a seed, you put it in the ground, you put water on it. What else do you do?
Make sure it's the sun or maybe maybe have a little light. What else do you do? Let's say it doesn't come out.
Let's say it doesn't nothing, nothing comes out of the ground.
So you just okay, you can say that those the seed was was rotted so you got rid of a bit more seeds. And then you put them in and you put them in the right soil and you use the way and you put the water on them and then you wait and nothing comes out. So then what let's say that stopped happening.
Let's say today well yeah, who was there all the all the farmers in the world, we're putting the seeds in the ground and they're putting water already, nothing's coming out. What are you gonna do?
So quick you do nothing, you have nothing to do you understand that like, as far as advanced as we are, there's nothing we can do. If for some reason, this seed this damn thing, instead you look at it, there's no life, you put it, put it beside you on your on your bench tent, and see if it ever speaks to you, or grows on it on what does anything, nothing. It just sits there, it's dead. But suddenly, somehow you take it, you put it into soil, give it water, you give it sun, and it grows. And it turns into something that's alive, and it produces something that you can eat.
We understand the process much better. Now. Today, you understand the process of how of how that all works, you understand exactly how how these how these seeds actually take the moisture from the soil and use the the energy from the sun
and starts to build its own energy product that it can later feed on in a story we know we can see we can actually take it down and break it again. You can see it in 3d if you like, go on. It's all on the internet, go and look, you can watch it happen. It's amazing. But what if it just didn't do it anymore? What am I doing besides introducing things to things I'm introducing a seed to soil to water descent? What else am I doing?
This is the point this is where the human arrogance comes in, we start we start we clutter the reality with information that is irrelevant. Yes, I understand you're a very good farmer. And you're actually combining different seeds. And you're using all the right to manure and the pasture. Everything and you're bringing on a really you're bringing out that corn that is just amazing. Because some corn you eat and you barf out and other corn, you just eat and you bite your fingers because it's amazing. So yes, some people know how to do this better than others. But what are you doing in terms of actually allowing that to live? Why is it living? Where is this life coming from?
Why is it why is it doing what it's doing? And tutors around? Well, you're the ones who bring it from the earth up. I'm not necessarily on level Nasha if we wanted to ledger, I don't know who apama would have turned it into rubble into nothing.
Just nothing would come out
of a tomb to Africa who would walk around Peking de facto is any action that is not purposeful. That's why phakisa is when you eat, not because you're hungry, just because you want to enjoy food. So it's not purposeful. It's just, it's just for pleasure or leisure. So any action that is not purposeful, that is not based on survival or improvement, the word difficult can be used. So for our tutor for Calhoun, when you go around speaking, speaking rubbish, think saying things that have no incoherent because I wouldn't know what to do. Neither would you. If suddenly today,
all seeds stopped growing when they were introduced to soil water and stuff. wouldn't know what to do. You would start saying in lemahieu Ramune. We are we're moving on with someone who is basically in a lot of debt to someone who's ruined.
maharam is a word you would say well, but I'm not in that level. But I'm gonna We're ruined by now. No matter Oh, no, it's not that we're really actually deprived of life. We're all going to die. That's what you would walk around, walking around saying things like, you're not using that Doom language. We are ruined. We're all gonna die. We've been deprived of life. We're gonna, it's over. It turns into a world where that's world war three. And that's what really, there's nothing stemming from the earth anymore. What are you gonna eat? There's only so many animals you can eat before it doesn't work anymore. In animals Ramune. But you'll lose it as a race, you won't be able to function
anymore. Why? Just because nothing comes from the stops coming up. Instead of simple this. Go get a seed go. Put it in, watch it come on, and wonder to yourself, y'all. People are proud. I like I come from a family of farmers. People are very proud of the things they put in the earth and how they come out. Very proud of it. They stand around, they make sure it looks good. And they did they protected in the you know, kind of remove any weeds around it and they take care of it. But what is your contribution to this process? What have you What have you done? Nothing. Nothing aside from just introducing the right circumstances nothing's he just asking you to Palatine and go back one
step please. Just go back with in your mind. Just go back a step.
who commands it to come from the ground? Where Where did it get that from? Where did it learn that from? Who's responsible for that process? No one the show. If he willed it, you would make it rubble. You walk around speaking uselessly, aimlessly saying We are ruined and we are deprived.
But that's not the case. We want a section three of our E two mill
levy to show aboon.

Third question, you see the water that you drink this magic, this magic potion, this elixir that exists in the world that we take for granted. Not for long though.
The water that you drink, and Tom and Sal to move home in a limousine are the ones who brought it down from the clouds. So he's talking about some Valentine is not just the fact that it rains. No, it does go back historically a little bit to the history of the Earth itself. You see, water on Earth was all salty. The water that isn't is water that over billions of years, the sun is basically evaporating the water of the salty seas, that saltwater is going up into the air in form of clouds, those clouds don't carry saltwater, as he explains in a moment, and then it sends it back to the earth. And the Earth absorbs it as clear and pure water as freshwater. And that's where we have all
lakes and rivers and other other freshwater reservoirs from this didn't come from a year or two. There's like billions and billions of years of this process happening for a very long time. And you have these bodies of freshwater otherwise, all water on Earth was salty. So he thinks apana with Dinah Are you the one who brought it down this process this process of of the sun being just far enough, just far enough where it evaporates just enough water so that you can actually have a return of it to the ground so you can drink? You did all this, you're the one who's able to all you do is just make sure that the sun is there. That's it, you don't even do any the other two, you have
something to do the first one. Obviously, you have to make sure the two fluid liquids meet each other, you have to have marriage and you have to actually do something about it. When it comes to growing you have to put a seed but here you did nothing at all. You just sit there and wait and hope that the water evaporates from the lakes or from the sea. And then and then the the wind brings forward the clouds in the hot water. He says no, no, shall we if I wanted if I willed Jana who judge who would have made all water salty.
Let's see what you what would you have done if suddenly the density of sodium and chloride changed. And suddenly and suddenly now one of these sign is actually the evaporating water evap it's not just it's not just the evaporating the the h2o is actually doing more than that. And some of these elements are going up and it's raining. Ever heard of acid rain?
One of the worst things that happens in an area that it rains acid rain, it can it burns everything. Imagine if every time it rained, that's how it rained, it didn't rain freshwater, it didn't rain, there was no freshwater reservoirs for you to drink from anymore. What you can ship none of us can treat you with any of these things. But they're these are the stuff that are taken for granted. Are you following my trend here? All these things are just the stuff that we take for granted that we expect we expect that they happen.
What do you mean, I'm gonna get married, I expect there when the two liquids to arrive for a child to be produced. I expect when I put a seed into the ground with water and sun, I expect it to come out so I can eat, I expect that the sun will continue to evaporate the water of the seas and send down freshwater that I can drink and enjoy. That's what I expect. But I will dish grown. So maybe what you shouldn't be doing is showing some gratitude for all of that because you don't control any of it.
You control none of it is not a part of your you didn't come to the earth and you're running around worrying about that is not what you're worrying about. You're worried about other stuff. You're worried about other aspects of your existence. No, no questions, of course, but you don't worry about whether the sun is going to be able to evaporate the water whether the clouds are going to actually form and whether ever ever study the different types of clouds and how they actually come together and then the need for wind and how it has to move in a certain direction with a certain speed and they have to have a certain density in order for actually to rain over specific areas. And
if it stopped raining over a specific area, how quickly life will cease to exist in that area.
I grew up in a place where
the amount of rain and and and and and snow that occurred on an annual basis was was was amazing. The stories of my father and grandfathers is that there's so much snow that you'd have to walk on top of stove on and drop hope is in the chimneys. Because the snow was like five or six meters that there's not something I heard from one guy who exaggerates it literally stories from everyone who lives in a certain era knowing I know we have to go from rooftop to rooftop. And then within 10 years 10 years of drought, that same area turned into something that is similar to a desert scenario. 10 years of lack of rain just lack of rain. If it stopped raining, stopped raining
anymore, and then you went from a place that was green all year round to a place where you can barely keep tree
either 102 103 100 years old alive anymore
so we live here in one of the most rich areas from a water perspective, aquatic Lee speaking we are extremely
spoiled, like spoiled beyond like we complain about rain and we don't like rain
it's only because we haven't really done a lot of traveling. Once you go around the world you understand no without rain there's no life the human race has always gone to live in places where where there's bodies of water those bodies of water where they come from, they come from this process that you take for granted that you have no control over whatsoever. Imagine if you just stopped for a tumor in the desert this water that you drink, are you the one who brought it from the sky? What if it came down salty? What if it just worked differently? What would you have done then?
But all that is gone? Then the final question is shall reciting that you go home. I felt like a tuna Letty T two
t shirt to Sharjah water her
kiloton I Lemo Pauline
so the fourth question he asks the power of data do you see the what the fire that you can do to ruin the fire that you take? Today meaning you're taking care of something you're protecting it you're standing around it making sure that it works to see the fire that you can do
until dumb and sharp tongue shedule Raja Are you the ones who created the the wood that you could burn for it to actually work for you? I'm actually monsoon or the US are we the ones who made it? Again all you do is you take gelato here gelatin no meaning when you take two pieces of rock or you take two pieces of wood and you put them there you do enough friction that you end up having a fire and that fire then burns it and it gives you now Jana had to give our tenants a reminder of something that of a punishment that may exist well my TA Lily McQueen material I mean and and benefit or Jonnie joy and metalheadz Anything that you use that as benefit beneficial to use word
Fatah and Moquin al moqui Is the person who's on a journey to Medina and Lily McQueen is beneficial for those who are on the journey. Now some scholars will say this is specifically talking to people who are traveling or it's just talking about all human beings because we're all on our journey which is how he talks about says Subhana wa Tada and other parts of the Quran so this is most likely saying this is this is there to allow you to aid you on your journey as a human being not having fire again just go historically what was the the human being before a fire and after fire is a very different thing like history before fire before the human was able to figure out how to do it and
how to actually control it and use it and utilize it was very different than how it was before that or after that did they differ because we were able to do so much more once we figured out how to actually make that and utilize the energy of fire
he's thanks for pointing it out. Yes, so you know how to burn things and you burn it to gives you energy and you that's how you run everything. All the coal that you burn and all that stuff, right? Imagine imagine the world today without coal without all the cold you Burt my life would be very different. You wouldn't have any of this stuff. None of this would be here. But he's asking the fire that the tree that actually burns
you make it burn. Let me ask you this define fire for me.
Define it I dare you. I dare you are you if you're a scientist, put your hand up define fire. Go ahead until this day, until this day, go to Wikipedia it look it up. See how they define fire. See if they can agree to what fire actually is about that. See if you can find if you can find consensus amongst the scientists of this planet of what fire actually is. Its energy or its its they differ on exactly what fire is how it works and and this has been going on for decades upon decades upon decades. They still look at fire and they're not sure exactly. You understand what it does. They can describe how it works but they don't exactly understand what it is. It's still unclear to them.
Understand what I'm trying to say the biggest goal is to take a step back he just thinks about that take a step back please. Yes of course you've learned how to harness the energy of fire and you and you've used it for but where did it What if things stopped burning? What if one stopped what what would you do if you just stopped burning is good?
Yeah, I think a lot of people confuse it. Yeah. And yeah, yeah. And that's the fallacy of modern sciences like Alafaya, which is, we think because we understand the process of how things happened, that suddenly, there's no need for there to be an origin, there's no need for there to be an essence of importance, there's no need to be because we understand how it's happening. Understanding how it happens, or how something happens only puts you at all more of the process that initiate the force that initiated to begin with, it's all it does. When you understand how things happen. It's just like, it's the same thing for for for a child growing up with his parents, he doesn't, a child does
not ever will never, no child will ever fully appreciate what their parents do, in terms of how they keep the household running, and make sure that they are clothed and fed and healthy and going to school until they are old enough to have their own children. And suddenly, they figured out how difficult this process was. So understanding the process doesn't mean it doesn't exist doesn't mean someone actually took care of it. It just means now you have more appreciation. So I don't know the fallacy that we're living today within the scientific community. And as people who inshallah many of your academics are studying science is that don't mix them up, because the Quran is just asking you
to take a step back, yes, you're understanding the process, you appreciate it, you're learning to harness it better. But it doesn't change the fact that the origin of it all, the force that moved at all is not is not something that you're capable of, you can't control that you can't change that you're not even interested in. And it's one step beyond you. And to check to make sure that you're the one who created the tree, that Bert. But if it didn't burn anymore, what would you do, then I'm not going to go and shoot when are the ones were the ones who didn't know, we made it for you as a reminder,
and as a pleasure and a use of benefit. So he talked about the four things to pilot data, our creation, our existence as human beings,
the very small contribution that we actually do, in order for us to exist, this introduced introduction of the two fluids,
the food that we eat, all we do is put a seed in this in this in the soil and hope for hope the water and in sun do the job. When it comes to the water that we drink. We're completely dependent on this amazing star evaporating this huge bodies of water that allow us to drink it later on when it comes to price to us. When it comes to the energy that you utilize on a daily basis, in order for us to exist, it just comes from the fact that Allah subhanaw taala, from the womb of green and life he made trees that will burn so that you have energy later on that you can use.
We contributed to these facts, nothing. We learned that these facts exists, we we harness that knowledge and then we utilize it in our favor. But we're not the ones who brought it forward. We didn't create them. We did not produce these facts. So just there. Now he's saying subhanaw taala. Just remember that I created you. Why are you finding it difficult to believe just look at the basics, don't look at something. He's not asking for something complex. You see if religion was complex, and only specific people with a specific IQ could probably understand and then it'd be hard for Allah subhanaw That would be impossible. Basically, for anyone to be held accountable. You only
have like a specific group of people who'll be held accountable, you'll know gamma, that people have the ability to comprehend complex issues. But that's not what he's saying. Think just look at the basics, just the basics, every thing that things we all have in common that we all equally benefit from and contribute to. And then just answer the question, Are you the one who does this? Who does this? Who programmed it to work that way who allowed it to be that way? So they will cite the final verse and then we'll let you go home. I said be Miss me Rob beacon are we
so exalt the Lord, the name of your great Lord. Subhan Allah be of Lima. This is the command he gives at the end of his power that is exalt the name of your great lord, because he's the one who created that way he's going to put it for you that way. And there's no reason for you to you should never forget that nor should you know anything to distract you from that and once that is clear to you once you have full conviction in this stuff it's no longer an issue of probabilities it's like 80% or 60% or 90% or a little bit once this is clear to you that I did not do this someone else did. He could have done it very differently but he didn't he produced it for me like this Subhanallah
Viet Alim it changes how you behave. It changes how you have your changes your habits it's changed the way you see the world and it changed how you live your life. I'll end with that and solid island will continue with the night data will recite the finale of sordid wealthy next week and shelter also extremely beautiful.
