00:00:08--> 00:00:44

Welcome back to the session, know your Lord, to love your Lord. We were discussing about the importance and dealing with the question, why do we know our Lord and we concluded with an ayah mentioned Surah Baqarah surah number two is number 235 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while mo anila, or foon Halim, which means and know Allah who is also forgiving, and most forbearing, let us deal with the second part of our session. That is, how do we know our Lord?

00:00:45--> 00:01:05

There are fundamentally two ways through which we can know our Lord. Number one is the creation around us and within us. And number two is through revelation. These are the two main ways through which we can know our Lord.

00:01:06--> 00:01:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, in the last and final testimony in the final testament, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, In surah facilite surah number 41. is number 53. Sonora him Ayah Tina filosofi Buffy unfussy him had begun Allahu unknown Huck our lamb yuck Phoebe, Rebecca, and nawala coalition shape Alice's soon we should show you the signs in the universe. Allah asks our attention invites our attention to look at the universe, the creation

00:01:48--> 00:01:56

were unforeseen and within yourselves until it becomes clear to you that this is the truth.

00:01:58--> 00:02:09

If we look at the creation around us, we would know Allah Almighty, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says in the Quran

00:02:10--> 00:02:14

in surah mulk surah number 67 is number

00:02:15--> 00:02:39

three and for our last panel Dallas's Allah de Hala subasta Mountain dibaca Mater, Rafi hulka Rahmani min without a law says, Look at the sky, he is the one who has created the sky. seven heavens, one above the other. Allah is the one who created seven heavens, one above the other

00:02:40--> 00:03:04

matter of the whole monument of Albert, do you find any flaw in it? Do you find any unorganized structure in it? Do you see in observe any mistake in it? Allah says look again, yet, look again. Allah subhanho wa Taala He wants us to look again.

00:03:05--> 00:03:23

And the law says your site will return in a state of humiliation because we will never find a flaw in the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In this in this in the sky that a loss creation or loss creation He has created in a perfect way.

00:03:24--> 00:04:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah surah number two is number 164. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah surah number two Atma 164 that in the creation of the heavens and the earth, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, the alternation of the night, and the day, and the sea, and the ship that sails through the sea, and the ship that sails through the sea, which is of use of mankind, and the rain which Allah sends down, and the rain which Allah sends down, and the creatures, the variety of creatures that Allah subhanho wa Taala has scattered and the veering wind and cloud that held between the sky and the earth,

00:04:17--> 00:04:23

all these things, and Allah concludes, let the men of understanding, take heat.

00:04:25--> 00:04:42

Let the men of understanding, ponder on this kings in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about these following things. Number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth,

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

the heavens and the earth, as he said, it is absolutely great. And this indicates that it must, it must have created the heavens and the earth, the sea, the trees, the variety of creation that are

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

Last Hamilton has created indicates and signifies that Allah subhanaw taala is there, it helps us to know Allah subhanaw taala as these are the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second thing Allah subhanaw taala says, the alternation of the night and the day. Now, this is

00:05:22--> 00:05:31

so important point to ponder over. It requires a huge, huge power in order to alternate the night

00:05:33--> 00:06:08

into day, it requires a force, and it is only the Creator of the heavens and the earth and everything that exists that we see. And that we don't see. It is that power, it is a law, who has the power, who can alternate the night and the day and none else. And this again, invites our attention. And this again, helps us analyze that this is how we know Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah subhanaw taala also talks about the sea that sails

00:06:09--> 00:06:20

in the sea, in the in the sea, the ship that sails in the sea, Allah subhanaw taala, he has created the sea for the use of mankind.

00:06:21--> 00:06:50

And this is how again, we can know Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned about the rain that he sends down to the earth, which was dead, Allah gives life to the earth by sending down the rain, ponder on it, and you will realize there is Allah subhanaw taala and this is how we know Allah subhanaw taala Allah talks about the variety in creation that he has scattered on the face of the earth,

00:06:51--> 00:07:11

various kinds of creatures that we find on the face of the earth, and they are scattered all across a variety of species, variety of species, the variety of faces, the Indian doesn't look like an American and American doesn't look like an Arab. A Chinese doesn't look like

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

the person who comes from different country.

00:07:18--> 00:07:34

These are the variety that Allah has created. And these are the signs. That's how you know Allah subhanaw taala variety of food that Allah has created us the variety of food that Allah has created for us, the variety

00:07:35--> 00:07:47

of the creation, that he asked us to ponder over, so that we may know him. The last thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in this ayah

00:07:48--> 00:08:44

is the reading of wind and clouds that are held between the sky and the earth. ponder on it. And you will look you will observe you will find and you will see the sign of a last panel done. This is how we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is existing Allah subhanho wa Taala he has given us so many signs in the creation, so that we may know him. Another way to look to find to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is look within yourself. Look within yourselves and there are so many, so many things that you can ponder upon, and will conclude that Allah subhanaw taala is there and we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is there for example, the powerful brain that we have within ourselves, the

00:08:44--> 00:09:08

powerful brain that we have, if you just imagine the power of the brain, then you will Marvel you will acknowledge and you will know the power of God Almighty, Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in front of the other creation, we the humankind and nothing we are the minute creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and look within ourselves

00:09:09--> 00:09:32

to the miracles, the power, the complexities of our nervous system, the eyes that we see everything, the mind that we think the heart that pumps the blood, the human organs, which are so organized, and you would Marvel and you would know, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:34--> 00:10:00

This is the first way that you can actually know Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala as he says, look at the creation around you and within you and you would acknowledge that this is the truth. The second way to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is through the revelation. As we said, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down revelation

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

From time and again, and the last revelation came as the glorious Koran. Allah subhanho wa Taala in order for people to understand, to recognize to identify has sent messengers after messengers, right from Adam peace be upon him, till Muhammad Allah Islam Allah subhanho wa Taala you sent prophets and messengers from time to time, so that people may know may understand and may recognize the Creator.

00:10:32--> 00:10:44

Allah subhanaw taala sent the last and final book of guidance for the whole of humanity to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Glorious Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in sort of facilite

00:10:45--> 00:10:54

in Surah, Ibrahim surah number 14 is number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Surah, Brahim surah number 14 is number one.

00:10:55--> 00:11:27

And Alif Lam rah, this is the Book which We have revealed to you, so that you may take people from darkness to light, by the leave of law by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent down the Buddhist Koran the revelation, so that we may know him, if he read it, if we study it, we will know that there is a creator. So Allah subhanaw taala also mentions in Surah, Brahim, surah, number 14, at number 52.

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

Allah subhanaw taala says, all mankind, here is a message for you

00:11:35--> 00:11:59

and a warning for you, that you may know that there is only one God there is only one creator. So, let the people have understanding. Let the people have intellect, let the people who boast on their discoveries, they have discovered the creation, but they fail to recognize realize the one creator who is behind this creation.

00:12:01--> 00:12:56

This creation is a cause is a is a result of the cause. That is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, these are the two primary ways that you will know Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number one is due to the creation around you and within you, and through the revelation sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala the blue disk or read it, understand it, comprehend it, reflect upon it, so that you may know Allah subhanho wa Taala Our Lord, we will conclude this episode with a prayer that may Allah subhanaw taala help us understand him as much as we can, so that we may love him and we may become His Beloved, and we may get closer to him. And at the end we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give the

00:12:56--> 00:13:17

guidance for people to reflect to ponder on the eye art on the science on the proofs on the evidence. evidences of Allah subhanho wa Taala with this we end with this talk this episode. We're aku Davina and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:13:46--> 00:13:47
