Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are bad
we can all
Zakah heyde Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he will probably surely surgery or silly embryo Hello Dr. Melissa Annie of Kahakai Robina scenaries Manya Karim. Inshallah. Today we start the story of Adam Ali Salam. So we begin with the creation of insan altogether in every single conversation that we've had in the Quran about Adam Alayhis Salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala he always introduces
three realms. When I say the word Realm i have one tea are you I thought you were bringing that tea for me it's personal one for you. Mashallah. So
there's another tea. I have
Hamdulillah I have Mashallah. Sometimes there's no tea but today mashallah shy on either shy. Okay, so every single conversation that Allah has had in the Quran
when he introduces us to Adam Alehissalaam. There's always mentioned of three different realms or three different creations of Allah. What are the three creations?
INSIA I don't Ali Salam, great. Yes.
Jin Jin, the realm of jinn. So they're always three of these mentioned. So some questions for us to understand.
How many realms do we have?
sit six. Tell me how old the six are.
Tell me what the six are. You don't know. Okay. So we have infinite amounts of realms. We do not know because Allah subhanaw taala says only Allah knows his Junod
nobody else knows where his you know there so there's an even when it comes to the earth
and the skies Allah subhanaw taala says what? That Allah has created the seven skies was sub
Aileen and seven Earths not just any Earth. Allah says sub Ira lean, Miss La Hoon exactly like hours.
If it was just some at all, then somebody could have said that was planetary objects. Could Be Us Pluto Mars Jupiter. But over here Allah says I have created seven of the Earth's Missler one like the one you are on. There are seven others like these.
We're going to get to the dinosaurs. Very good question. We are going to get to the dinosaurs today. That's a very important question for the younger kids we had are the dinosaurs in the entire creation of Adam.
Great so we are we have multiple rounds. Can you give me some of the realms that we know as human beings today? Other than these three? Give me another?
Another place where some creation exists? And we all come from there.
Come on guys.
Rule, Allah mulawa All the spirits, all the rules are congregated there they're all hanging out.
They're all hanging out. As a matter of fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned that
a wahoo Junoon muda Naja,
Mata Arafa. Minha. Eternal. Well, my Tanaka ROM in her tellef.
The Ottawa, our room, our spirits. They are hanging out in groups.
So Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, they're all hanging out in groups. Now when you all come down, when we all come down, if my rule and your rule, we're hanging out up there. Then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this earth, you have the laugh, not if they laugh at last, which is the opposite of FTF, which is that you have OLFA and love and muhabba. And you just, you know, have you ever met some people? You meet them? And you're like, Man, I know you for so long, but I just met you.
We've all met such people, right? It never happens that you know, those people are our wives, right? Or husbands wives their husbands? Right? You have to get to know your husband. And every single day everyone is discovering new things about their husbands and wives. Right. But is that enough happens? Then you see harmony in that couple?
How many of you have seen couples, you're like SubhanAllah. Like everything goes with them? No matter how difficult it is how easy it is. Like they figure things out every single time because they probably hung out somewhere up there. Okay. And if they were estranged if you were in a different camp, and I was in a different camp, when I meet you, it doesn't matter how long I have known you there's always going to be the laugh. There's always going to be dispute and bickering and I don't I didn't mean that you didn't mean that. What do you mean? What was your intention, my intention, all these arguments happen.
So that's a little bit about the realms because we must understand that now. We have only been told in the Quran. Three types of creations.
But were there more than these three types, angels gins and insaan were there more creations before
in our fasciae, even Cassie and Toby, they have mentioned that before
they were gin in the earth, Allah had created who's going to tell me the name of this creation?
Huh? Somebody said it.
Ah, what did you say?
Yeah, even if you said dinosaurs, you know
you're close. You're very close.
Right? Anybody from the sisters
been Masha Allah the sister knew the answer. Allah created a category of creation that were called bins. And alongside with the bins Allah had created another one sounds very similar.
l Hin and Bin, now we don't know what they are, but
okay, we don't know what they are. But they were created then Allah subhanaw taala sent down the angels to destroy that entire creation
to destroy that entire creation. And then Allah sent created the gins and sent the jinns down.
And when the gins they created facade on this earth. At that point, Allah subhanaw taala sent down the angels and asked to, to push away all of the gins that lived in this earth.
towards where towards the waters and islands. So the deserted islands and water places, ie either next to the sea and stuff is that's where you find them. That's where they're all congregated. Okay. Now, how many intellectual beings do we have?
I eat they have apple and they can think
Come on guys, your intellectual being
I'll install gin.
But what is the difference between the angels and then gin and ins? Yes.
Is that your daughter?
What's the difference?
Okay, you probably don't know. Okay. Yes.
Okay, that's a good difference there. The angels are made out of neuron genes are made of fire. You skip the data, but it's okay. It's good. It's good. So
our ability to sin or to obey Allah subhanaw taala comes from two powers that Allah has kept in the jinns. And in the insaan, but not in the angels, which is a Shaohua well Hawa Xiao Hua will Hawa this desires and inclinations, desires and inclinations,
the angels, they are
they're intellectual beings. Who can tell me an ayah in the Quran that tells us to their intellectual
they asked a question alo a gentle Luffy Are you going to create in this earth that which is going to create facade? Well, yes, we could Dima, that is going to
spill blood. Who asked Sheesh, who asks these questions, somebody who's intellectual. So the angels have intellect. The reason they ask Allah subhanaw taala. But they have no choice but to obey. Why? Because they don't have these T two qualities of Shaohua desires. And how are inclinations they don't have these two desires.
Yeah, so and that is what produces the will. Right? What a mom and
Allah says in the Quran. Oh, when I had enough sun. What's the beginning of that? Know when I had enough sand in Hawaii? And just while I'm in half and mahkamah Robbie, he wanna have enough sign in Hawaii.
But in El Janetta he Elma IE, as for the one
he was afraid of Allah subhanaw taala and he got under his control his power, his inclinations. And when those inclinations were in control,
he was able to prevent himself when I have enough Sanyal. Haha
in NL Jana he l Ma. If we can control that Jana becomes okay 123 All three of you including my son, I need to three adults to hold these kids because it's distracting my train of thought.
Okay, one person goes there, go go, go go go. You get up use of don't use of you get up and you go and sit with
your wife go go go go get up, get up, get up and you keep him. Awesome. Move up, move up, move up. Okay, great.
Okay, one I had enough sand in Hawaii. So we have three rucola three intellectual beings, the angels and the jinn and the in sun.
We have three Rapala three intellectual beings. Angels do not have inclination and desires but they have intellect. They can question and reason they can have a conversation.
As for the Jensen and Sandy have ha now the jinns Allah subhanaw taala he says about the jinns
that the genes from them are
those who obey Allah subhanaw taala
Where does IRA in Surah Jin one Meenal mostly moon? Well, I mean null Facetune
there are those from among stars that are believers and there are those who are opposite of that. And then next I Allah says Well, I'm gonna pass into an alpha can only Jehan nama Helga. And as for the ones who are this the ones who disobeyed, or they fell short, those are the ones that are going to be the fire of hellfire at the fuel of hellfire.
why were they all created with different materials? Why not create all the gins and the angels and the insaan? Why not create them all together with one material? Why use three different types of materials?
Why Why choose different materials? See, these are all questions that we need to ask.
This is Ted booth. This is like we're sitting here and trying to think we know that they're credited for three materials. The question is why? And then the scholars have answered these questions. Why do you think make a guest Why do you think they were created? Why do you think angels were created with light with nor?
they are what?
Yeah, but why were they why did they arrive from nor
sorry, somebody said
they have a different job, every creation, their material of creation, how they came into existence? You Nasim Allah Leafa it is appropriate to the function that Allah wants them to have in this world.
So melodica they were created with Nora what do they do melodica they're always in zikr test we use a bit we're gonna be handed off to him, or to Ramallah he got a half half in a home and
you're going to see the angels there surrounding the outer shell of Allah. They're all what is non stop. There are angels that are in a state of Siddha. There are angels that are states they're doing such that they're doing record they're doing PM, those that are doing TM will be in TM all their lives. There are those that are going to be insulted when they're going to raise their heads. They're going to say what Allah Hema Abba Tanaka huckberry by the Tico Allah we have not worship you the way you are worthy of worshiping. This is an angel who was created only for such though all in his life.
All his life, all he has done and such.
But when he raises his head, he's going to be like, Oh my god, I have not done the hack of Allah.
There are those who are going to do the tawaf once they get one chance what happens they line back.
Right? There are people above the Kaaba, there's another guy but but he told them are mortal. Over there, there are angels that are doing tough seven rounds. If an angel gets an opportunity.
If an angel gets an opportunity,
and they finish their thoughts, they will never get an opportunity again.
Ever. They will never come back they will go back in line and gamma will happen. They will never get their turn again.
Okay, how many of these angels are there? Allah subhanaw taala inserted by him, he says, And he presents for us the scene of your will Masha. He says on the day of measure, it is estimated that total of 100 billion people have lived on this earth roughly if you were to count humanity from the time it started. From Adam Ali salaam till today.
If you were to count another 3000 years of life, we would be roughly at the amount of
how many of you did I say? 100? Yes, squirt. I thought I said 2000. Yeah, close 200 billion. Those are going to be standing in the day of Masha. And Allah is going to command the angels of the first sky to descend, and they're going to surround us and they're going to be doubled in number, then the angels of the second sky are going to come down, and they're going to be double A number of the people in masher ie the angels and the insaan combined 300 million times to 600 300 billion times to 600 billion 600 billion plus 300 900 900 billion times two is Sky three, and likewise until the seventh sky
and then Allah is going to Command
koboko Walk, walk Zacher locker
and then Allah is going to begin the only measure so so many angels, there was Eva is just to obey Allah and to do this via as for the genes that were created from what
Fire, fire is usually even in our in an American or the North American Native culture, right, you find fire is used for deception, recklessness, in consistencies. Qaeda by yeesh. All of these qualities fire doesn't symbolize something positive, they have the will to choose the positive, Allah has given him the willpower.
But all the genes do even from the time of their creation, when they were created, there are from those who are going to believe but there are very few that are going to be able to control themselves most of them are causing facade in the earth.
And the leader of them is who
shape on IBLEES then Allah created in sun.
Allah subhanho wa Taala created in Zion. Now, the creation of Adam Alehissalaam it has many Murrah has many stages, okay. It has many stages and the creation of Adam and he said I'm we're going to go through basic stage wise progression of how Adam Adam Hassan was created. Throughout the Quran, you find many verses that tell us the different stages that Adam it has salaam before he came into this perfect shape of a human being. It has a weight to who went to feed him and Ruhi before that happened when I formed him fact and him and then Allah blew the spirit in him. Before that. There were seven stages or six stages. Before that happened. The first stage Mohalla Talulah is
Mahabharata to rob it was the stage of soil. Allah subhanho wa Taala he selected the soil in Buddhahood. It is a long Hadith I'm just going to summarize it for for everyone that Allah subhanho wa Taala asked the angels to collect from this earth from every single portion, every different type of soil.
Georgia has what color
red, good. Clay, Georgia Clay Right. It's well known different color. If you go to other parts of the world, it's white if you go to other parts of the world, it's brown. So there are different colors of this Saurabh the soil. So Allah subhanaw taala created in the Hadith he says a Herman Cooley is rotten to Robin mean Cooley know what every type of soil that existed, he asked the angels to go and select all of those from all of those types of soils. Then
Allah subhanaw taala
it is what Allah said. And because of this is the last of the source material. We have done a war in our colors were different in our colors. And we have done a war. We have variety in our attitudes. Some are just easy people. Some are just difficult people.
By nature, they're just difficult not just with the people that didn't meet in the item allawah They're just difficult to deal with. Right some are people very easygoing, very gullible. Some are people that are angry all the time. Some are people that are very soft and gentle spoken, you can't you can't even see anger close by to them. All of these tener will add to the summary of the Hadith says this came to us because of that.
Then the next Mahala The next stage is not harder to clean.
Now this clean
when you call something clean when you take soy
or clay and you add water to it. When we add water to clean or soil it becomes when we add water to soil it is called clean in the Arabic language
the Mahala of the in who knows the ayah
if Allah Bulkeley Mala in getting in the call upon Bashar Ron min lien when Allah told the angels
I am about to create a Bashar
and in son from what mean lien I'm going to create him in clean that was the next stage where the creation material of
the mighty salaam was collected. They all got connected again mashallah there the roof must have met
the roof must have met somewhere
downtown Yeah, I don't know.
Get up get up get up. Where's your dad?
Yeah. Outside go get him
go get him tell him that you know he's been summoned where's your dad?
you're here by yourself
Where are your brother
your he's in the masala go call him
today you know these dads and brothers are gonna get it
it's really interesting no mashallah the sister site is full. The brother side is empty and it just gets fooled for the food right because no I'm serious it's really sad those brothers need to be listening to this but they come and the sadly only comfortable with they all stay outside and then as soon as food is served they will all you will watch this this room is gonna get doubled. Right its size and it's just really sad. Because they need to be listening to this as much as the mothers
and if your husbands are here you make sure you don't cook food for them if they don't attend
no food for you. What was that that skinny? Tell me the seven stages of the creation of Adam it Salaam. That's the question you asked tonight. And if they don't respond
sorry, until next Friday, no food.
Or you can go to the masjid if you want.
More highlight the Sanya the second month Hala is the stage of clean. Ibrahima Adam Ali Salam was created in the in IE all that soil that was connected collected by the angels for Allah subhanaw taala. He placed water in it, the angels place water in it and now that soil turned into clean ice water and soil God connected and now it is mixed. So it is malleable. You can move things around it. Then you have the Mahala Asad isa Hama in must noon.
This is the type of thing if you've ever seen water that was mixed with soil and if the temperature was not dry, and there was excess water with that theme, it starts turning black
it starts turning black and it starts stinking it starts having the scent there's not a very pleasant scent with water sitting with that you know and then you have like earthworms and all of these. So, you start having the scent that type is called hammer in must noon. Now how am I must know means the type of clay that was left or II must noon skinnin Many many years that clay was left.
So when it was made into the spleen, it was left until it started creating this developing this patina and especially specific type of scent.
And then the fourth stage was sudden Saul Welaka the Hydra canal insaan Amin Sol Salim minha in the sulphonyl is the type of clay that has solid Salah.
So it's still wet and damp, but when you form something out of it, you tap it and it makes the sound solid Salah you can have a knocking sound out of it, it'll make a sound like
you'll be able to hear that it doesn't break. But it's still
like a hollow shell but it has a sound. This has solid solid, it has a sound. So it's dry enough yet it's still wet and it's malleable. Kind of a very, very early stage of drying pottery if you've ever seen when they make that pottery, and when it's dries for a couple of days, it's still wet inside, but if you tap it makes that sound
a mind* rodina Razi, he says
well, Accra, Ghana Huhtala halacha who are one minute to rob some a minute 13 So Mum and Hannah in must known sama min salsa.
Then in another ayah Allah subhanaw taala Edward salsa
Then Cal Cal for car. This is the next stage where Allah subhanaw taala added that this now knocking this clay that makes sound has turned into something which is called for her now
mashallah, we've been having food every single week ever since we started. We have a lot of Moroccan brothers here. They're They're well known for their fahara Pugin. They know they cook their their meats in that Tajan thing right? Until now we have not tasted anything.
Just just letting it out there. You were created from that far you eat in that for her. And that has never been brought to us or Gee, man.
I tasted it one time. What about all these people? They're all Muslims.
They're all Muslims, too. So get the Moroccan band going, get them get to work. Yes.
As for him, we're waiting for the Mende pit to be made. It's been like three months. No, come on.
Then, the next stage
is that Allah subhanho wa taala. Now that this This clay is ready to be made. Allah subhanaw taala made Adam Ali Salam in that form. How tall was Adam Ali? Salaam
six Sigtuna Iran. Okay, this the ceiling is 28 feet.
So Adam Ali Salam was just roughly as tall as the ceiling.
Okay, if you want to see the actual vision of Adam Ali salaam, there's a guy in Serbia, he actually did use the soap that you were, he actually stitched a stove. According to the Hadith, the size of Adam alayhis salaam, then they brought a huge crane that can lift that Sobe. So they had to extend that crane, and they put a huge giant rod and then they hung it and then they then you can actually see the person standing in front is like this small compared to the stove that was hanging, which would be the job of the size of Adam Alayhis Salam. Now, when Allah created
Adam Ali salaam, what did shaitan do at that time? At least he was not released yet. But there is an indication that he did something.
He went in and out through the hollowness. And he said, What is this thing that Allah has created?
That's where the seed of Kibera was sowed in the heart of Iblees. At that time, he looked at this clay material, he said, How is this possible? What is Allah trying to do? He started questioning the creation of Allah.
And this is the message for everybody that is listening, those who are online and over here, very important message for all of us.
Sometimes we do not understand why Allah subhanaw taala does things. I would say most of the time we don't understand.
As we get older, we understand that everything that Allah subhanaw taala does is good for me. We may not understand the purpose of it, the impact of it, why did he do it at that moment? Why me? Why not somebody else? Why at this moment, this was the critical moment of my career or my education of this, this, this this this.
But Allah subhanaw taala sees hikma and wisdom
and he chose that particular thing as much as you hate it at that moment it was for you.
So Iblees could not understand. So he goes and checks Adam Ali Salam before the roof. What is this? Why is Allah I can control this thing very easily, in one nourish and says, I can control this. Even further down when he has the conversation with Allah subhanaw taala he says what? Danny Ghana do reata who I will be able to put a reign between the nose of Adam and his children and I'll be able to control them like a horse. Him this Adam and all of His children.
Okay, then. So this was the merhaba of tests. We're then the next stage of martial law is the martial law of nerf rule. Now I want people to understand Allah subhanaw taala did not some people you know when to feed him your Ruhi it's not that Allah took out a portion of himself and added it into other Malisa. Now, some people understand it like that. For example, because Allah is free of all of that.
Why? Because sometimes we say Baitullah Hill haram, the house of Allah GABA is Allah there. No, it is for shut off. It is for honor, i e dismiss ba
This connection the Arabs connect things. I either connected that house to Allah out of Sheriff and honor. Not that Allah lives in that house. Ha, he's, he's not confined by any cosmological existence. Allah cannot be confined by a creation. You think about it, like the people that sometimes believe that, oh, Allah is sitting on the couch.
Okay, before He created us, where was he?
Number two, what is greater the US? Are ALLAH SubhanA wa How can a creation can find the Creator?
It's not possible. Allah is the One who created the ash.
Right? He created the ashram, he cannot be on Duff.
Because it's a crazy creation. And if you want to just understand the magnitude of UPS, for example, What did Allah say? The example of this earth is like a Halacha, like a ring that is lost in the desert. And the desert is the first sky.
And the example of the first sky is like a ring lost in the desert compared to the second sky. And third sky and fourth sky and fifth sky and six sky and seven sky. And then the could see the archer the footstool is greater than everything, all the skies combined.
And then there is an ocean.
There's an ocean above there. And on that ocean, above that, is the outer shell of Allah subhanaw taala. Right. So this outer shell of Allah symbolizes majesty that Allah is like I am the most powerful creator, He is the Ultimate Creator who are highly vocally che he is watchable with which he is necessary existent, he must always exist. Hence to show his power he created the ash which is the greatest creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Now for a trivia question, since we're talking about this, and we'll come back to the test we and the completion of Adam Malasana
what are the eight things that once they are created will never be destroyed?
We have touched upon a few today
Jana Johanna, okay.
No Arsh we did our shall see could see, Percy wants to? Yes.
Allah was never created.
Right, Allah is the Creator of everything. Last one to left.
Allow the scroll in which Allah subhanaw taala asked the column to write everything that is going to take place until the AMA. And the last one.
That tailbone zentiva of the Insan, the Cossacks the tailbone of insaan that will never be destroyed. Even when the AMA is destroyed, everything will be gone, but those tail bones will remain. And then on the Day of Judgment, Allah is going to send the rain and the rain is going to touch that tailbone and you will your entire DNA of your existence will be in that tailbone. And you will come back and today's science has proven that that all and that's why when they look for animals that are lost, they go and look for the tail bones because has a DNA sample of the entire creation. Okay, that was a side tangent. Now, the last one is Allah subhanaw taala. He blew into
Adam Ali salaam, this creation of structure rule. He blew into him rule and then Allah subhanaw taala says further Baraka la vida, Fatehabad, or Allah who
is an old harlot.
And how much how filled with the baraka is the one the best and the absolute of creators. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
Then, Allah subhanaw taala decreed for Adam Ali Salam and all of his children,
him and all of his children after him to be created in the process of a drop of semen with an egg and that whole process most of the adults know what it is. Where did Hawaii Sam come from?
Where did he come from? The kids.
Ribs. I love ribs.
I love ribs ribs are tasty man.
Don't remind me your ribs,
back ribs, smoked barbecue.
You don't don't do that. First you don't serve as dodging. Now you're telling me about ribs now? How
am I a cannibal?
Okay, so ribs.
Adam Alehissalaam the rib.
Right? She came. She was born from the rib of Adam IDEs.
So what does that tell us about how well is that? Um
What does that tell us?
This Hawaii Saddam is the only female that was created with it from a man.
She was the only female that was created from a man. This creation does not mean it is an argument
that by the way, I'm going to use a word I have to say it in a different way. Because if we say this word in the right way, then YouTube flags the video and then it doesn't show the video to people. Now the video or YouTube has certain AI built into if you say a certain word. There's like triggers of artificial intelligence flags. And then if they see that you're talking about this particular thing in a certain way, they have a algorithm they will just suppress the video or it completely removed the video or they'll ghost the video which means you will see the video but nobody else will see the video. So moving forward, we will call this new, everybody knows this. There is this entity
that you know believes in a different way of lifestyle. We would like to call them liberty Q
So the YouTube algorithm I learned this from Sheikh Shadi May Allah subhanaw taala Shadi al Masri, so we were having a podcast, I was having a podcast about, you know, modernism and different different topics. And he says, you know, these liquidy Q.
What? He said, Yeah, this way that YouTube can flag it liberty, Q. Okay. Right. So they say, oh, you know, what, if God can create
from a male, a female, then why was What's wrong with you people? God is okay with it.
That's absolutely wrong logic.
Okay, that's a completely false logic. Okay. That's one point number two, that why is it necessary for us to learn the lesson of the create this all of the construct? Why did I go into this detail?
Because we did not come from a monkey.
The science that is taught to the schools in the schools, the Darwinian science, we all came from a monkey. I remember when I was in grade 10, my teacher was trying to push this idea of Darwinism. And I said to her, I said,
Teacher, you know what, I think your ancestors that came from monkeys as for me, my ancestors that came from humans.
She got so offended.
She, because she's teaching me that, but she wants everybody who loves him. And if we choose a selection ism, and we say no, no, you came from monkey, no problem, I can see that.
As for us, we came from humans. Hamdulillah. Right. She got so offended with that. No, no, no, we all came. No, no, I said, I know I came from an insane.
As for you, you probably came from a monkey, I absolutely have no doubt in that.
Right? So Darwinian, and this is important for parents to listen to
see Darwinism, there are two elements to it.
And this is a hard concept to grasp. So I'm hope that I really am able to explain this to people but it's important for us to understand this concept. There are two elements to it. One is the reverse evolutionary biology. So if we go back, back back, regress, regress regress, they can prove that we came from apes. How can we prove this? We can prove this by the how can they prove it? They prove that in son, when they dig stuff, they see different versions of insaan in there. Hence, we were different beings and we evolved.
So there is an element of us coming from apes. And there's an element of evolution.
As Muslims, we have absolutely no problem with evolution.
Allah subhanaw taala didn't adequately shade he can turn a fish and give the fish wings to fly. No problem. We will believe in that because we believe in an absolute, all powerful creator that can do whatever he wishes.
Yes, I know Maya Shah
Wahoo, Allah coalition in Kadena. So we believe in evolution, we believe in evolution, not that we actually came in from the evolutionary or a our reverse evolution goes back to monkeys. That's number one.
when you evolve, you have stage wise progression, correct?
So if you ask them,
so Tabaka first stage monkeys, then next stage, something else, then something else, then half monkeys half in some, some stage right? My question is, and this is a question that you asked a scientist. So why is the evolution not going both ways?
Why it stopped at the monkey?
Why didn't it go beyond the monkey? What was before the monkey? So they were like, no, no, that was the alpha state. That was the initial state. The answer to that? Who is holding that state for you to be in in sign from a monkey our DNA, they say we have 99% DNA with a monkey? Great. Who is holding that monkeying DNA on the foundation? Because we were built on that? Who is holding that DNA?
In our evolution? Who is holding that?
Who is preventing my monkey nests to go away?
And they don't have an answer for that.
Yes, right. We tell them that, yes, we have no problem with evolution. But evolution.
If it begins, the initial state has to be sustained for the evolution to work. What if the initial state starts corrupted, getting corrupted in the process of evolution? Then you don't have any evolution? So yes, we believe in evolution, and the one who, who holds the first evolution, ie the first creation and then it evolves that holding that's who we call Allah subhanaw taala. As for the InSign, we came from Adam it Salam because Allah has clearly told us that
and that is the reason in the Quran, in the Bible, in the Torah, in the Talmud.
Genesis is the first chapter.
Where do we come from?
The creation, it's necessary for us to know that where do we come from? Okay.
So that's the introduction. Inshallah, we're gonna get into the story of Adam is Adam, but this is an important introduction to the realm and we must understand where all of these create and if somebody questions that simple answer is we have Quran that has the answer, but for those parents who want to understand this further,
a really good mentor of mine, I grew up with him in Toronto, and we're trying to hopefully, you know, bring him to, to the to the masjid. He lives in Turkey. His name is Sheikh Hamza Karim Ali Sheikh Hamza Karim Ali from Karachi, and a phenomenal scholar of science and he's on the mission to educate the Muslims who are leaving the children who are leaving Islam due to science. And he has an entire video series called sincere questions and sincere answers. I will post that video series in the WhatsApp group if you're not on the WhatsApp group. Now before we go,
I wanted to food is here. A we're gonna delay there Inshallah, number one, number two.
I went outside last time I wished no I don't have the remote and my son is nontariff de la there was I would ask him to turn on the monitor.
Last time when I left
I saw some beautiful scenes right at the entrance of the lobby. And I took some beautiful pictures of all of the shoes that were beautifully placed while the shoe racks were empty.
I was gonna show this even even the next one right here, the entire shoe rack
is Masha Allah empty
and all the shoes are on the ground. So we have created a secret mafia.
You don't know who they are, we don't want you to beat them up. But next week after maghrib while the lecture is given that mafia is quietly going to sneak out
and we are getting a special bin with a plastic bag and we will place all the shoes that are going to be found on the ground in that bin and we will place it outside on the edge of the building. So if you don't find your shoes on the ground
Please find them in that Szubin it's not a garbage can, it's a shoe bin. So it will be in that shoe bin. So we will give a warning as a reminder to next Maghrib next month we will remind people guys don't do this Maghrib you know if your shoes are on the ground, just like your cars, if the shoe is on the ground look I can see the entire shoe shelf is empty and I see shoes on the ground mashallah okay
so a masjid is known
by you know, it's a you know, people are known by the houses they keep a mustard is known by the shoe racks we keep. If they are empty, then that's a culture and another alpha to shutter on Eman. This is the house of Allah you would never do that in your own houses when you enter and you allow everybody to mashallah beautiful choose the next part is when you go into ciders. If you're wearing your socks from the morning, especially the guys,
this is Georgia, they will sweat and they will develop mashallah some beautiful smells.
We I as an imam sometimes when the AC turns on, I'm like Allahu Akbar. What is this?
So please, personal hygiene is important. Again, you all know what the drill is brothers, please stand up. If you can, the brothers are going to run down the plastic over here. Either you're on this wall or in this partition, Please clear the center sisters please stand up. You either go to this wall or this so that the sisters can put the carpet and then somebody can pull the partition, pull this a hut had
Subhanak alone Well, we have the Akasha Alejandra
