00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Lee you're so happy Jemaine Oh bad.

00:00:03--> 00:00:10

Hello. We'll continue from where we left off yesterday in the FCO. So it will say that we started at number eight and shallow today we'll start with a number nine.

00:00:11--> 00:00:12

Quick reminder, this these verses

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

are very specific significance

00:00:18--> 00:00:32

in the sense that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam used him as a response in a very famous incident, when ultimately that would be I came to him and made him all of the bizarre offers, that Horatio is willing to make the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, in order for him to

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

take back some of the teachings he was

00:00:36--> 00:00:43

he was bringing to them earlier salatu salam in their attempt to negotiate with him and maybe get him to compromise a little.

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

And, of course, the value of Salah to ascend throughout that period refused.

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

He refused over eight attempts

00:00:52--> 00:00:55

for them to negotiate with him, and make him

00:00:57--> 00:01:30

making him several different offers in different different senses. And this one here, when this story was was revealed, by Bobby, I had made him at least six different offers, in terms of what is that you need you want sovereignty do you want out is do you want wealth, to see what it is that you want, and then put it aside those out for him, none of it? Obviously, none of it meant anything. But when I was done making his offers the Prophet Allah, you saw some response was merely just reciting the first 13 to 14 verses of Surah tosylate.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

has been meaningful. And so let's we'll see that

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

it's, the theme is very straightforward.

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

You are obligated to offer the best data possible,

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

should be detailed, it should be well explained. It should work all together, it should have all the elements of a logical critical argument.

00:01:55--> 00:02:03

But even when you do that, the majority of people on this planet don't really respond to words. They respond to actions, they respond to character.

00:02:04--> 00:02:10

That way with character is just better. Just it's more sustainable. People find it more meaningful,

00:02:12--> 00:02:45

as important as it is obviously, to bring forward an argument that is meaningful, and that makes sense. And we are as human beings held accountable in front of Allah subhanaw taala, for not responding to something that makes sense, which is what suitable says, going to explain me when you're offered an argument that is that is logical, and you refuse it just based on a whim or desire or whatever it is that's holding you back or whatever reason you have, you're held accountable for that. That is actually the reason that many of the acquirement and many of the nations that listen to it tells the story of were punished and punished because their profits offered them arguments.

00:02:45--> 00:02:57

They had no rebuttals, but they just they just refused. But it's funny, the sewer with all of that saying yes, that's all true. And the proper argument must be made and the people must respond to it. And if they're not being held accountable.

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

This dialogue with character just works better. It just does. It's the bottom line.

00:03:06--> 00:03:25

And one punch that could be blended was better, like a million helpers that were made over like 500 years ago. Honestly, I don't even watch this stuff. I don't even understand what the sport is about. I don't even know the guy. However, one punch she landed seemed to have more impact or the Muslim ummah.

00:03:27--> 00:03:47

One goal scored by the Moroccan team affected the OMA way more than then what can I tell you? How many hours how endless hours, endless hours of doodles, and lectures and teachings and arguments online. Documented of Muslim scholars and Muslim teachers sitting and talking and explaining

00:03:49--> 00:04:04

what action has some degree of meaning to it will have will have way more impact, just way more impact. And that is just the fact of the matter. We as an ummah have to recognize that, that it's our actions that do the best our

00:04:05--> 00:04:23

what I do is way overrated. Like, very overrated, you have no idea it's needed. Obviously you cannot have an ummah without it, you need MSG and you hate you need a data center, you need to talk about the deed. And people have to hear what it is that Allah subhanaw taala explaining that hands down, that's what's needed. But it's not even remotely close.

00:04:24--> 00:05:00

To what actions that are that are profound, and that have a meaning behind them will have on an omen and beyond. I think that's just something we should we should acknowledge and think about it because that's going to take us down that route, to force us to see it that way. And I hope by doing that, you end up feeling the value that you carry as a person outside of the masjid, in the masjid and outside of the masjid. And in terms of how you affect this Deen, you know, you affect the OMA. You're extremely impactful. You're extremely impactful wherever Allah Subhana Allah has stations you

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

In this world, you have extreme impact just by the mere, just by the merits of you behaving as a Muslim, just being the best Muslim you can be. The impact that you have on the world on Muslims and non Muslims is very, very real, very real. It's sometimes even more real than, than anything else you can think of. But I think as Muslims, we sometimes we don't value it. We don't see the importance of it. And we feel like oh, if I don't have a platform, and if people aren't listening to me, and I don't have today, it's all about followers and how views and which if and all this garbage, that's honestly meaningless. But that's not true. That's not true. What moves people in

00:05:37--> 00:05:59

this world are stories, stories of encounters, they hide with others. That's how this world works. And each and every one of us and what brought it brings us back to Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps us on the path with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, our moments, our stories, our encounters with people, things that happened. That's what moves us. So knowing that you're a part of this big network of

00:06:00--> 00:06:14

character building, and oh my god, it's just based on character character building everyone is, is be trying to behave but put themselves in their best behavior to affect other people positively understand that you're a part of that, that just like we were affected, you will affect others.

00:06:15--> 00:06:50

To me, that's very, very important. Because and hopefully that will bring back to you the importance of just being the best Muslim you can be because you're performing Dawa, you're performing real, that will, that will, that will affect many, many people, and actually has more impact in my opinion than than a lot of the other stuff that you think is impactful, but really, it isn't just just just where are you? What are you doing? Your students, your professional, your spouse, your friend, what are you doing wherever Allah subhanaw taala has stationed you and position you in life, just just be the best person you could have no idea the impact you're gonna have, and the amount of real power

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

that you're performing just by carrying yourself as a Muslim. Okay.

00:06:54--> 00:07:34

So, we recited the first eight verses that talked about that a bit and it showed how the disbelievers people whom I can nuttin either only him walk or they don't hear it, their hearts are in a veil. There's a barrier Pamela just just you, you show what you have also what we have, let's let's let's compete with actions Valentina. Um, you know, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam explained, really what this is about. You believe in Allah, Allah, Allah, yes, first of all, the movie he was telling you, and then walk the path of his jicama where your non corruptible was who will continue to ask for forgiveness as you as you make your mistakes on the way. And when he defined subhanaw

00:07:34--> 00:08:10

taala than wishes he did not define them, theologically, as they are usually defined as polytheists, who don't know Zeca or humble Africa to learn to very practical concepts or are embedded in practice now, because of practice, and not believing in the hereafter is a practice. It's a practice. In the Quran, there is no way Allah talks about believing in the hereafter. He's not talking about some issue of theology. No, he's talking about the fact that you will feel accountable. And because you feel accountable, you want to behave in a certain way, because you're fearing the fact that you're gonna be held accountable and in front of Allah, the Day of Judgment. There's the belief in Allah

00:08:10--> 00:08:32

without that peace is meaningless. So I believe in normal piano, but I act like what does it mean? What does it mean if I believe if I guess I'll be resurrected, but my behaviors do not reflect that at all. I'm not worried at all about being held accountable for any of my deeds, but I believe I'll be held to government that doesn't mean anything. That's just you just playing with words now. Now it's just a game of claims that has no no truth to it.

00:08:33--> 00:09:02

And that was the last thing we read last night. We'll start in shelter for a number nine. These words are very, very beautiful. They describe Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah's actions. Allah has actions. Specifically, we'll go through these verses and they won't describe Allah subhanho wa Taala statically as maybe verses and students will deal with doers who have learned from his verses will talk about Allah subhanaw taala will talk about his actions just to just to mirror what we've been explaining. Even Allah subhanaw taala saying the best way he predominate for people is to know what I did.

00:09:03--> 00:09:25

Before we know who he is generally generally, because he is I leave and he will allow him and he is ill Kareem and he's a producer pounds and support. But maybe it was more meaningful for people than just these descriptions actually what he performed what he did supine and whatnot, and that is true. That is to explain them and I'll shed some light on that. Who was the biller? He Nina shame on your body

00:09:29--> 00:09:33

Bismillah R Rahman your VA Rafi

00:10:38--> 00:10:39


00:10:40--> 00:10:41


00:10:42--> 00:10:43


00:10:45--> 00:10:46


00:10:49--> 00:10:51

Mustela us

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

we're here Doohan Paula

00:11:06--> 00:11:12

Paula well in our OB T pa one gal her

00:11:18--> 00:11:23

ball at Dana ball Erie in

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

so we started to pilot to annex is full say in Netcom indeed,

00:11:33--> 00:11:57

the truth of the matter is that you let that fall below the hollow Pearl Harbor for you to me that you disbelieve that you refuse to believe in the One who created the earth in two days without your Lunella who and data and you claim that there are partners and associates for him. The Nicaragua el Amin, that is the Lord of all, el Amin in Arabic is everything that is not God.

00:11:59--> 00:12:10

Everything that is not Allah subhanaw taala is called the island mean, and that's just the usage of the word and in the language. So he is the Lord of the universe, so is the is the is the Lord of everything.

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

Now, the concept of yo mean, in the Quran,

00:12:15--> 00:12:26

the days that are used, I think are important to kind of just take a moment and talk about these as the pilot which is similar to the PCT a year you created the cosmos in the earth and 60s. And

00:12:29--> 00:12:29


00:12:30--> 00:12:51

we know throughout the Quran, that the days that Allah subhanaw taala speaks of in his creation are not the days that we experience that's already established, it could be 1000 to 50,000. Tomorrow is what the Quran says even more than that. So he gives an open end concept in terms of the actual amount of time is different.

00:12:52--> 00:13:05

So we know that we also what else do we know we know that the word Yom in Arabic means a period of time. But because the period of time that is most famous are the 24 hours of the day that keep on repeating themselves.

00:13:07--> 00:13:14

It was used for that to describe that. So the initial usage of the word Yom was not to describe a 24 hour period, but rather just

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

describe any period of time. You know, number one, number two, number three,

00:13:23--> 00:13:29

when we talk about a period of time, Allah subhanaw taala does this fairly mean by that?

00:13:30--> 00:14:15

The time being short or long, but rather than the nature of the time, and this is one of my teachers, basically understood the verses to be this hour, how we understand them, he looks at the concept of a UFC as different natures a period of time. So instead of saying six days, as in how long that was, because today we understand is like 13 point something billion years, he looks at them as six days of nature of time. So six days as in the four seasons, and day and night, right? Without those, there would be no creation like it wouldn't, nothing would be on Earth. The reason that you and I are here is because the Earth has these days, as these periods of time the Earth goes

00:14:15--> 00:14:28

through these four seasons, the Earth has day and night, if you remove any of those seasons, or if you remove the concept of the continuity of day and night, then life would cease to exist. There'll be there'll be no life on Earth. It's very, very simple.

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

So what Allah subhanaw taala is describing his creation in six days, and in two days and four days. This is not a description that is literal in terms of our understanding of what a date actually is. And that's very important. Because Allah subhanaw taala does not require time, nor his time a part of Allah subhanaw taala has laws in terms of what governs his his his actions. It's, it's what governs ours. So when he when he says that I created the cosmos and the earth in six days and then the earth two days for example,

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

Out of those six, regardless of whether that, again is the nature of period of time, so day and night, or whether that is actually referring to the percentage of time from the initial bulk of time, it's what we needed to come here, not what Allah subhanaw taala needed. Because in the Mamre, who either are the CHE Pula, who couldn't fail Kuhn, when he wants something he says can be and it will be, the only problem that we have as human beings is that for some reason, I don't know why this is. So I'm not sure about that. We believe that when he says be, that whatever is going to be must happen instantaneously. That's how we that's how we feel like you said be so it must happen

00:15:36--> 00:16:09

immediately. So I don't know where that came from, though. I mean, where did we who made that up, who's who determined that when Allah Allah says Be, and something is going to obviously be right after that, that the time period has to be in the seconds to determine that that's just a determination we made as human beings because that was seems cool to us. This is a meat, this is a medieval concept of God, this has nothing to do with the Islamic understanding of it at all. And this is not what Muslim scholars have ever understood life to be, by the way, maybe you just go back and you start studying a little bit of what the Muslim scholars talked about in the during the

00:16:09--> 00:16:48

Golden Age, like if you read the book, one by Jehovah, or if you look at what is when a software worked on, or if you look at some of them overseer, looking, will *a Razi, they don't they don't believe this, they never believe that to be the case that in order when he creates something, it has to exist. That's what basically, without naming faiths, this is what the face we have today believed God to be they have this vision of a of a man, I knew jelajah Allah in white with a long white beard sitting on a throne somewhere in the sky, and just zapping things into creation, giraffe, tree human being. And their understanding of God is very, very simplistic, and it's not Islamic in any form or

00:16:48--> 00:17:23

manner. So he said, Can Subhana wa Tada to be? Oh, human being you're going to be and then human being is the human being was the way Allah subhana said, it is just what was the amount of time that was required for that to happen? It turned out to be over 13 billion years? Or maybe it's a milli second. Who cares? How does that change anything? If Allah subhanaw taala said be the human being was? Does it matter the time? What is the time matter? Why does that matter? Why is it it? Why does it have to be a second in order for us to be impressed? I'm more impressed the fact that it took that long actually, I find it to be much more impressive, that Allah subhanaw taala said Be and then

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

from one

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

minute, one cell when

00:17:28--> 00:18:04

you need cell organism, all of this came within a programming and one strand of DNA that allowed everything that ever lived to exist. To me, that is way more impressive. Because I understand a little bit of her understand a little bit of how coding works a little bit, we just start to understand how you can code certain things. And if you code them correctly, you can end up with with stuff that was software that actually worked something they can actually benefit from. So when Allah subhanaw taala says Be it from just one strand of DNA, there's enough programming in that on it, just enough programming in it, for everything that exists today to everything that that we know,

00:18:04--> 00:18:07

there's a lot that existed we don't even know about existed.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

That to me,

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

is more worthy of an awl than, than just zapping things I don't understand, because that's more mystic.

00:18:17--> 00:18:38

So when he talks to pilots out about the fact that he created the domain into two periods of time, it's theirs is symbolic for you to learn from, be able to follow along with the concept, where to go and look at understand what does he mean, what how did this actually work. And when you find out how it actually works, you actually see the methods, the tools that were used, when you see

00:18:41--> 00:19:05

how creation actually is the way it is what what adaptations had to use, what macro evolution and how to use these tools that are lost a pound, there's the randomization that the randomness that would occur within mutations and how and how and how natural selection allow will kill off the weak and keep this drunk. Just knowing that that system was put in place from the beginning, allowing you and I to actually exist is just much more impressive. Just more beautiful.

00:19:06--> 00:19:13

So he says, In Nekoosa indeed, you you just believe in the One who created the world or the the earth in two days.

00:19:14--> 00:19:36

It took a long time our planet was cooked around the Sun for hundreds of millions of years. And it was just a very slow process of cooking. And life was cooked in a very slow process for millions of years. But why is it not impressive? For some people? That is a million of years, millions of years? I don't know. I don't know who came up with this idea that it has to be quick. It has to be like this. The quick in the terms of our seconds.

00:19:37--> 00:19:43

Flies live for seven days. They feel like they live a full life by the way. Time is very

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

is not the laws of relativity very important here. Time is irrelevant. It's not this is not something we wait I understand time is differently even from the way you understand time differently from the way a child understands time differently when someone who's very ill

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

I'm someone who's very happy. We just understand time differently creations, they comprehended differently. The One who created time, Allah subhanaw, Taala time has nothing to.

00:20:10--> 00:20:34

It's just it's just the capsule that we exist inside. We can't because we can't really leave it, we can understand that maybe maybe something exists without time. But we can't know something that I can comprehend this is beyond my ability to imagine. Try Go ahead, try to imagine anything that's not happening with some sequence to it. It's possible. It's just our brain we can we can fathom that maybe that exists, but we cannot actually imagine it our minds don't doesn't have the music, they don't have the ability to do it.

00:20:37--> 00:20:56

In spaces is the same thing. When you continue just by the Delica bralla mean, that is the description of the Lord of everything, or geography Hala YCM in Philippi, and in nature that there were mountains on top of it, what about like a fee hmm. And he smothered it with his blessings, well Candela fee for water and he decreed and determined all of its sustenance.

00:20:57--> 00:21:16

The out of it a year, in four days total, for the first two days and another two days out of it I am in four days total. So Alyssa in and that is a straight that is a flat answer for all those who ask, and all those who are interested or have questions about how Allah subhanaw taala did it tell him this,

00:21:17--> 00:21:25

the creation itself two out of six, and for the next two, everything on top of the earth and living inside of it slowly came to exist.

00:21:27--> 00:22:01

The mountains and the and the sustenance and the baraka that was going to exist an end result Baraka via means that he put within, it's a system that will continue to move. The concept of Baraka means that things continue to increase. There's a system that supports itself, it just keeps on working, keeps on producing something. The Baraka here doesn't necessarily mean the concept of, of Baraka that we understand from Allah subhanaw taala in our lives, meaning there's a, there's a, there's a godly aspect of something we have Baraka is just means that Allah subhanaw taala, put a system that will continue to produce something, it doesn't die off, it doesn't produce once and then dies. And

00:22:01--> 00:22:20

you know, it's so self sustaining, it will take care of itself, which is the system that allowed us to exist, that we are very professionally destroying and ruining, I don't know how we're going to survive afterwards. But the system that Allah put in place that will continue to produce everything that all the organisms that live inside it require without aka.

00:22:21--> 00:22:30

It's beautiful when you look at nature and how it works. Yes, it's brutal, but it's but it works. It continues to produce the same day life continues to move forward.

00:22:31--> 00:22:51

You don't need intervention, external intervention, actually, external intervention is what kills it all. And the external intervention that happens this Baraka via Subhana, WA, tada has been tended, has been the six extinctions that have happened over over history, or the or the other that have occurred upon people. Aside from that Baraka, there's always going to be sustenance just keeps on producing,

00:22:52--> 00:23:13

the earth keeps on spinning, keeps on turning around the sun, and it keeps on producing life. It keeps on bringing forward that which we need about like a fee or $1, via Apple word. And within it, he determined subhanaw taala all of this sustenance, that everything was going to need be out of it. And then the remaining of the next x two days, for a total of four. So

00:23:15--> 00:23:28

to muster either summer, you will hear the horn, then Allah subhanaw taala is Stella means he is dua is a very, it's something I'm not going to waste, I'm not gonna spend time to explain him because it's a it's a long theological

00:23:30--> 00:23:50

conversation about what this actually means. But it still means he took full control. Or he turned his attention to subhanho wa taala. And it's a figure of speech, obviously. But it's important because he defers to a concept that we understand today. In a summer he went he had to run to the to the cosmos as it was defined dokkan

00:23:52--> 00:24:00

dokkan is a is a thick, is a fix substance. That's the actual explanation of it in Arabic

00:24:01--> 00:24:35

is something that doesn't necessarily have material. It's not materialistic get hold on to it. But it has an A thickness, that is something that you can see that you can, that you can almost there's an illusion of it, meaning you think that there's actual solidity that is solid, but it actually but but it's not. But it's thick enough for you to think that it is that's what he's talking about. The concept of the mist, and that concept of mist is even scientific in terms of what we think existed out there before all of the planets in the galaxies and the stars and and all the constantly came together. And so we think that that that's what they believe existed before Stella subhanho wa Taala

00:24:35--> 00:24:49

in a seminar where he had Doohan as it was just slowly forming to become what it is today. But God Allah will, and he said to it, and to the earth. etea power and Okada come to me, willingly or unwillingly.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

This is the mirror of the verse in Alderman Amanda Anisimova he will early well GBL

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Allah subhanaw taala offered this story that you and I

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

If things before us, would you like to be the creation that has the ability to say no.

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

Would you like to carry that Amana?

00:25:09--> 00:25:17

You'd like to be the creation that has the ability to say no. Or you just want to come unwilling just come the way it is. thought it's taken out thought ain't no will come willingly, there'd be no we don't want this.

00:25:19--> 00:25:24

Do you mean well? Isn't it the opposite? No, no. You see, we're the ones who are going to come cuddle her.

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

We're the creation that's going to come to Allah subhanaw taala unwillingly. We're the ones why? Because

00:25:32--> 00:26:09

right now we can do whatever we want. And then we die and we turn to Allah subhanaw taala whether we like it or not, you see, you're going to come to Allah subhanho wa taala. We're going to return to Allah. There is no debate on that matter. The only question is when? When do you want to do it? You want to do it now when you have the choice to do it, and there's some angel waiting for you. Or would you like to do it when you have no choice at all and there's no algebra attached to it. It doesn't make a difference. You're coming to Allah subhana wa Tada. We will we will all do to spear we will all perform sujood we will all perform Perfect, perfect, perfect repentance. We will all

00:26:09--> 00:26:47

have a highest degree of Oshiwara and concentration and clarity with our Lord Subhana wa Tada. We will have Adonijah of Eman the only the Prophet alayhi salatu salam achieved in dunya. We will all have that on the Day of Judgment though, when it doesn't matter anymore. When no one is keeping track when those who are documenting your status and where your heart is aren't documenting anymore, and there's no way for you to prove that you no one cares. You say things no one's listening. Right now you turn to Allah subhana wa sejarah and then there's documentation of it. And Allah subhanaw taala responds to you because he has studied and he achieved that with a DA either da who Subhana wa

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

Tada or the Day of Judgment

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

people also make drop follow federal

00:26:55--> 00:27:39

oh well I'm Dakota de como Sudoku and Bill begginer but why weren't you sent prophets to tell you what was right and what was bad or better vs Cairo federal then go ahead make right now. Well, man, I do it carefully and I feel bothered but no one's listening to. It's just going into nothingness. Well learning is just aimless. You make dua now let's start Amos goes to Allah subhana wa Tada. Then he, when he responds to Jiu Jitsu, whatever matter he believes is best or he sees fit, but Your will pm or 50,000 years people will make dua and no one's listening. So you're coming back to Allah subhanaw taala is just, willingly or unwillingly. Allah to attain our PA aid No, we will come will

00:27:39--> 00:27:57

come willingly. We don't want this why? That's why there's no idea there's no agenda for some hours a lot. There's no reward for them. There's no specific place where they get to experience no, because they just did not they don't have the you don't have the option, you have the option. And because you have the option, Allah subhanaw taala has opened for you two doors,

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

choose the one that you want,

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

at the end completely up to us.

00:28:04--> 00:28:30

All of the verses in the Quran that talk about creation are extremely, extremely symbolic. This is the important piece when you're reading the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala did not send the Quran as a book of astrophysics. It's not a book of biology. It's not a book of anthropology. It's not what the Quran is here for the Quran is to explain to you the symbolism behind all of the things you're going to find out as you walk the earth. And you figure out how things happened.

00:28:31--> 00:28:47

The expectation in the Quran that you're going to see rueful or right? How many times you're going to walk the earth. And literally you're going to look you're going to observe you're going to learn and with time you will figure out you're going to figure out certain things you're going to find out how things happened and what happened in the process of it.

00:28:50--> 00:29:07

That being known that's going to happen Allah subhanaw taala explains to us the symbolism behind it it all mean what exactly it all symbolizes in terms of why it is the way it is and and how we're supposed to understand what we are looking at and what we are understanding from the scientific

00:29:09--> 00:29:48

discoveries that we come up with please read the Quran that way if you do then you'll benefit when you see them at least minimum I mean to rob and clean and maintain the lesson and min so sardine can for her I mean So Solomon Hannah and Miss noon. So which is it? It's all of them are symbolic. They all symbolize something water symbolizes something clean unless it symbolizes something so solemn and Hamilton misnomers symbolizes something, just symbols talking about the construct the structure of the human neffs and what what it's built upon. It's the graduality of the human existence, that tried to explain the process. You're supposed to go into alive and read the Quran and then tried to

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

put together what he knows this is not what he's trying to do. That's not what the Quran is. Therefore, this is this is a complete misuse of what Allah subhanaw taala tried to explain. So he talks about these two days and four days he's talking about the usage of these

00:30:00--> 00:30:00

periods of time

00:30:01--> 00:30:13

and their accumulation and how it started very very slow and then you started with the earth and then you require things to exist upon it the mountains and there it is then the sustenance and the systems that will allow

00:30:15--> 00:30:16

the continuity of it

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

recycling some of the verses the verses that are left up or who

00:33:04--> 00:33:05

protection wherever

00:33:06--> 00:33:12

the Lika taka de al Aziz in Alim This is decree the decree of the unfathomable and the All Knowing

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

there's no reason for you as a Muslim to refuse science because of your deen.

00:33:24--> 00:33:38

It is all you walk away from on you today, isn't that something helpful? There's never a reason for you to be studying and learning about the world and then stop and say no, no, I'm not going to study this anymore. Because I'm Muslim or because Islam goes

00:33:41--> 00:34:09

science and in this book will never clash. And if you think they are is because either you misunderstood the book, or you misunderstood what you're reading in terms of times, they'll never clash and there is no reason for you to shy away from any scientific theory anything at all. For the and the reason behind it being my religion there is no reason there's at all there's no there's never been there never will be

00:34:12--> 00:34:46

because the Quran is symbolic in the way that is explaining what's happening. Science is going to tell you the how the Quran tells you who tells you why tells you what tells you when doesn't tell you how that's what science does. You use science to figure out the how you figure out the how only so that you're more impressed by exactly what occurred. You understand it better. That's why in America Allah has been able to get rid of those who truly truly revered God are there are they are the scientists because they understand how well you understand how you're more or more on all of what he actually made some kind of Wattana the Quran is not designed to do that for you. He's not

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

trying to do that. So there's no there's no room for it to clash. There's no room science is not interested in why he's not interested in the symbol. It doesn't care. It just tells you what how things happen describes the processes and then you connect some dots to figure out how things work.

00:35:00--> 00:35:32

Hola palletised in the corner talking about something very different than that. There's no reason for you to ever shy away from something. If you don't like a theory don't like it because you scientifically don't think it makes sense. And you're looking for a scientific alternative. Not because your dean told you that it should No, no, no, no, no, no, no at all. If you're Muslim, this is not a struggle, but you have at all, you've never had this struggle. If you knew what the Muslim scholars and during during the Islamic Golden Era, if you know what the Muslim scholars talked about, in terms of the theories they had of creation of existence, you would have a very different

00:35:32--> 00:35:55

comprehension of your deen, by the way, we are on the wrong side of this 90 of the graph. Kenny, we're on a very we're on the wrong side of the Islamic history graph, we're in a very low spot to where in comparison to where we once were. And if we go back 1000 years in history, we were at a better spot, socially, intellectually, as a community, we understood things and conquered and looked at the world in a certain way.

00:35:57--> 00:36:18

When you when you systematically starve people and oppress them for 100 200 years, what do you think comes from that besides ignorance and decay in besides superstition, and besides a lack of ability to be flexible and comprehend anything, this is what we are, we're coming out of that we're just waking up. We're just you know, slapping ourselves on the face kind of trying to wake up from a slumber that went on for a couple of centuries.

00:36:19--> 00:36:30

So for us, a lot of what actually was is not clear to us. And a lot of the cultural aspects of the deen that that our parents grew up with aren't really what Islam is about.

00:36:31--> 00:37:07

And when you look at when you look at the Islamic Golden Era, you listen to this names of the scholars, you understand that Muslim scholars were people who are just, you can't use the word ILM upon someone who only studied one or two disciplines of knowledge. And it can be used to describe someone who only studied Islamic law. That's not that we have words for that. It could be an solely, it can be a filthy, it can be an amorphous set, a mohawk that these are words that are used in all the books. I name is someone who has studied something else. A botanist, an astro, Astro astronomer, someone who was studying something outside of law, and they had theories and they had

00:37:07--> 00:37:44

understandings, and they came up with ideas. And this is very important to understand. We talked about creation, we talked about the graduality of life. And we talked about how these we talked about a way before the modern world did like, like way before, like I'm talking maybe 500 600 years in advance. We were talking about stuff that they just came up with, you know, a couple of maybe a century ago. And then when they came because they came up with it a century ago, were the first people say no, that's why What are you talking about? Your your, your great grandfather, yeah, he talked about this stuff. Because that's how they understood the Quran. So this is symbolic talk

00:37:44--> 00:38:08

about witness Abasa teammate, he decreed them to the 777 skies in the remaining of the two days. And he did, he gave a mandate to each tie in terms of what was going to do. And then he beautified this closed sky, the one that we have, and he filled it with wasabia, with Lance talking about the stars, whatever in form of protection, that is the decree of the unfathomable, subhana wa taala. And the omniscience

00:38:09--> 00:38:51

that's how he put it together as a panel, which is what you have all of this, as huge as it is, is just there for you. He made it specifically so that you would you'd exist within it. You're very small piece of it, but it's there for you. And this symbolism of something very small, being worth all this is what the Quran is trying to explain to you. It's not about size, it's not about might, it's about a different set. It's about a value that comes from a different source that Allah subhanaw taala has somehow embedded inside of you. And because of that this earth took a couple of days to be prepared and the cosmos another few days to be prepared for you and beautified and

00:38:51--> 00:39:25

protected so that you can go ahead and exist. And here you are in here we are the Lika taka deal this deal with ISIL. Eileen is the decree of the unfathomable, because you'll never understand why. The first question is, well, why did you do? Why? Why Why? Why does this? Why would you make any of this? I don't know no one does. And no one will ever do? No one ever will. Because I give you the answer that allows the Father created us so that we would know him you'd ask well, why? Why does he care about all that? I don't know. No one does. And no one ever will. Why? Because Allah Hill disease and if we understood all his motives, then he wouldn't be God anymore. He would just be we

00:39:25--> 00:40:00

would have figured him out. If you can figure him out, then he's not God. If anything if you can figure anything out, do you understand you can break it down into its elements you can make it equated and turn it into an equation or formula. It's not God anymore. Because the moment you can figure it out, there's a way for you to overcome it, to overpower it, even if the percentage of that happening is zero point a million 0.1 If it's there, then it's not God. He is Allah subhanaw taala because there's no chance there is no chance there's no way we're not even gonna know. And actually the way He created everything is to understand that like awesome

00:40:00--> 00:40:00

All your

00:40:01--> 00:40:14

your spec, spec a dust, your spec a Dustin in a massive in a massive existence, you're not even your Galaxy can't even be filed. Forget about you being found you were so small, but he made it for you.

00:40:15--> 00:40:51

You're very valuable to me. But you have to be small. So you understand that because there's a struggle valuable. So I know your value had. But okay, so I'm not gonna know you are you're important. Because we don't we don't understand what am I big or small? Yeah, exactly. You need to figure out exactly what you are. You need to figure out what it means to be loved and to be a leaf and to put them together and then have the proper attitude or else you're going to either become too big or too small, and both approaches are going to ruin everything that he could have to do is easily been audible. And if they refuse all of this, if everything that has been explained over the

00:40:51--> 00:41:28

last 1011 12 verses, they turn away from it, they're not accepting, they're not accepting the simple. GitHub, unfortunately, that to a book that has been detailed and well explained in the proper language. They're going to not listen to that they're not gonna look at the behaviors. They're not seeing what Allah subhanaw taala made for them. Like this existed just just like that just came from nothing. When do you accept that type of arguments outside of the universe? When When is that argument even? Entertain? Imagine when you find someone dead with a couple of stab wounds, and there's a knife? Yeah, the knife just somehow stabbed him. And then you put it No, it's not a

00:41:28--> 00:42:00

homicide. This was just that person just, it'd be fired. Just stupid. You can say I don't know who did it. But you can't say no one did it. You can claim I have no idea who did that's fine. We all we put that in our facade didn't happen. Or didn't No one. No one's responsible. Someone comes to the hospital, they die. I'm gonna say no, they just did. There's no reason. I may not know the reason. But I can't say there's no reason for of course, there's something that did this. Of course, if I can't figure it out to agents, is that that's my problem. For us to look at all this knowledge is there is there.

00:42:02--> 00:42:35

Yeah, I know it's infinite. Right? What do you mean? It's based on Thai women infinite, it moves with a sequence. It can't it doesn't work that way. Whatever made it cannot cannot exist within that freight timeframe within that framework of time and space, or else it doesn't make any sense. This is basic philosophy. You understand that? It was talking about 7000 years ago, it's the exact same arguments, nothing has changed. He's one of the most pathetic things that exists in human history is that we still had the exact same arguments and we think they're new. We think oh, look, ya know, modern eat, you know, it's the same stuff. I just talked about it. We don't talk it's just that

00:42:35--> 00:42:44

well, lucky, the exact same, nothing's new. There's nothing new because science and philosophy are two different realms, and they haven't and there's really very little there's very little overlap between them.

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

We only recently started to use science actually to debunk philosophy, which never works it never worked in the past and it won't work today.

00:42:55--> 00:43:08

Matoba Ilan have seen that he realized what he was doing. He was shaking, he was in fear. He had his hand on the hands of the Prophet alayhi salatu was I'm asking no more than he was embarrassed. So he sat back.

00:45:36--> 00:45:47

And he said, please continue. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam will continue to when he said under Tecumseh, open that I warned them of a blast that will take them all just like it took it in the mood.

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

He thought it was going to hit him right then and there.

You got scared for himself and for his people. So please just No, no, no, we don't want to say we don't want it. Then he got embarrassed. So we sat back, because it's not appropriate to interrupt in the middle because the Prophet alayhi salam didn't interrupt him. All the garbage he was offering he

00:46:27--> 00:46:32

he listened and we sat back to the Prophet continue is a tomorrow saloon beginning at the moment call for him

During the duels, remember the battle, there are duels, always duels for all types of wars back in the day, I'd brought himself forward for a duel and died on the battle on the wrong side of things. Even though for a split second for a moment, he knew what needed to be done. It's very hard to change when you're older. It's very hard to be flexible when when you when you've invested so much time doing the wrong thing. It's really hard. But that shows character and that shows clarity and that shows gripped and commitment when you're a

And it's clear to me, it's very, very embarrassing by the way to kind of make that, to admit that and in to accept that I was wrong. I'm going to turn to something different. No one likes doing it. But I didn't do it. And he died on the day of but you're on the wrong so you could have been with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you could have been on he could have been. He was that close. He felt it he knew it. He knew what the prophet Isaiah was saying something he went back to let them speak there's something special here. Let them speak. They said no and he couldn't he

00:50:35--> 00:50:39

couldn't leave the status that he had built for himself amongst coalition he died that way.
