It begins of course and sort of Al Baqarah for Allah subhanho wa Taala recounts we had spotted a bouquet in Milan equity in the downfall of the Khalifa, I'm going to create on this earth vice gerrant So with that, I'll just open up the floor inshallah Tada for sure. Right, exactly. So, first of all, I gotta give some shout outs. All right.
met brother MZ today at Faro Masjidul Farooq who watches the show, regularly called it a show just now. And shout out to sister Ali Arias Han who watches every episodes and put from Canada and puts a comment every single time. And who else is there? Of course, my friend and my brother Bill Scott, who watches regularly I know you're watching right now
okay, what are you gonna do?
Okay, and I'm hoping also that we so we're going to discuss a lot of things I hope we have will give some time to some of the objections people have to the story of Adam and his Salah and there's some accusations that there is no way Adam Adam was that big and then they mentioned what he calls square cube theory which is which says that his the bones would be crushed under his weight the also the idea of if he was so big and his offspring were you know, break also, why don't we find big skeletons every time they find an old skeleton it's just a little ape looking thing. So maybe we'll give time for that kind of thing.
yeah, why not just the beginning well okay, let's at least mention so.
Okay, I got something I got something for sure what lead here
so the question is was Adam designed or supposed to come down to earth that was the plan because the versus how much just recited Allah Allah told the angels in Niger and you fill out the Khalifa I'm gonna put a vicegerent on Earth, right then
Allah subhanaw taala also introduced them and Hawa or told them about a bliss walk them in Nevada I do when Luca when his Odjick follow origin nakoma Amina Jannetty fetish calm don't let him take you out of a Jana. How take your vagina and so that means when if you eat from the tree or make that mistake, you'll be kicked out over Jana. So and I know some scholars said both you and me but maybe I'll put it towards you Khalid what how do you reconcile between the two that he was created for Earth versus if you eat you'll be sent to earth
carbon Abasto the Allah and we're gonna be hidden Allah had a Maha and Zillah who will audibly or whatever from Ginetta.
So I've been ambassador, the Allah on set when ALLAH SubhanA data, created Adam, He created Adam and he sent him to Earth to seed and do witnessing. So Adam is very familiar with then Allah subhanaw taala. After that, he basically raised him and put him in Jenna. And that's where he lived him and his
Hawa with his spouse, then after that Allah Subhana Allah because Allah subhanaw taala created him from different corners of the earth. And when He created him from these different corners of the earth was like
sand from different parts of the world. Then mix it with water. That's how long it became like has a smell the clay. Then after that, it became like it became like a clay confer hot anyway. So Allah subhanaw taala honor him by letting him stain gin and Hawa. But eventually Allah subhanaw taala knows that he will go down to the earth. That's what I that's what I know the story of how Adam was, could that be the explanation of what Allah taught him? The names were Allama Adam and USMA Kula right. Allah taught Adam the names, all the names, some scholars said, He taught him everything, meaning, this tree is poisonous. This bears fruit, this is an animal, this is raw, this is cooked,
this is fire. And so in so doing Allah subhanaw taala taught or gave Adam the two things you need to have a good life, knowledge of your Lord and knowledge of your world. So Allah subhanaw taala taught him all the names of things while he's in Jannah. Or could this be an explanation that on Earth, he got to understand the earth and then he came back to Jin? Has anyone ever said that?
I don't know. But what seems from the Quran, it is almost mattala When He created him, he inherently put on him the knowledge of the names of things. Okay.
That's what the
original order books.
So what about this whole? Was he really that size and the bones and all of that, that you opened up with?
I mean, so. So why aren't there gigantic skeletons? Yeah, we find so So hey, Muslim mentions that that Adam when he was created, he was 60 arm's length. That's something like really huge, like the taller than the cowboy or taller gonna mean, a gigantic building else huge dinosaurs like, yeah, like dinosaurs just kick a T Rex like.
So they said that? Well, the first thing that they accused, they said that there's no way because of something called square cube theory where basically, if you have a small cube, that's one centimeter on each side, then the volume of that cube is one cubic centimeter. But if the size becomes 10 centimeters, so now the area the size of the area versus the volume, the difference is knob. So now it's 10 times 10. It's 100. Now, it's the volume is 100. So that the size went up by 10. But the volume went up by 100. And every time you get bigger, the volume will be much too big for the set the area I mean, here we mean the bones. So they said if Adam Allison was that big his bones would
buckle would be crushed under his weight. And if you see with regular people who are like seven foot six, or what have you, like large, they suffer a lot because of their Yes. And that's why if you Google it, every other website says it's impossible. He couldn't have been huge in the Bible, of course mentions that there were giants who walked the earth before. So they're saying that's nonsense, because these giants would would not be able to CES would collapse. Basically, every every website says that. But the funny thing is even the websites like a long article refuting that human can be that big at the end, they will mention that well, at the same time, you know, the
Brontosaurus, and these gigantic dinosaurs, their bones could sustain them. At the end, I found a lecture by an MIT professor. And the whole lecture is over an hour, the whole lectures on YouTube. And he actually brings the femur bone of a mouse and an elephant puts it up on the desk like that, and like a horse and what have you. And bottom line short, he says square cube theory only apply. It doesn't apply to biology. It doesn't apply to living things. So, so people took something from physics and they and they said, I mean, basically they just try to disprove anything in religion. That's the point. So it is possible that you can be that big and still walk around and everything.
So there's nothing impossible. That's the first one. Okay, were you able to find anything about the lack of skeletons or what have you? Yeah. So.
So we're saying okay, there was an early generation there were gigantic there were huge. Why don't we find big skulls like this petrified or fossilized? Huge skulls themers like, you know, from here to there.
And they said, first of all, for something to turn into rock, which is what happens with fossils, the bone turns, it becomes petrified it turns into rock. For these conditions to be met. These conditions are are like really hard to come by. And very rare for these conditions to exist. They said something really interesting. And these are the scientists here, not people just defending religion. They said, what's the population us now like 380 million or something? They said if everybody drops dead now in America 380 million
during the 60. Okay, if 360 million people dropped dead right now. And then 1000s of years later, okay. Or maybe even more than that. Some people come to North America. And they start to dig through and look for fossils from 360 million. They said, you know how many they would find if they found it and look at the size of the US. They said there would only be about eight bodies left from 360 million, only eight would be left? And then they'd be under the ground. You have to find them. What are the odds are going to find anybody you understand? So they were not 360 million from the early generations that were huge knew how they set out know, the people who ride the ship would know what
So can you imagine like, earlier, what is the number of people on the whole entire earth? So with all the changes that happened to Earth, so what are the odds then, but she also wouldn't it be too much of a sign to find the skull and 1/4 of this room in size? So too much of a sign kid?
I do believe in that. That's where Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran and the process Allah told us the Lord told us about
Adam and hadith is the process I'm told about Adam Alayhis Salam that He created him that big, but there is no Hadith saying that his children were in the same size. Also, I mean, this is an assumption, but there is no proof. That Hadith says that after that they became smaller and they are getting smaller. So there is no how difference his sons from him, his grandsons from him second duration that we don't know. Simple as that. So we don't know if that's assuming that the whole people are generation were that tall on bake. That's an assumption that's Islam cannot burden that some responsibility for that because simply there is no proof for that. Okay. All right. So
obviously, there's a lot of beautiful theological implications with regards to the story of Adam of them is that Allah subhanaw taala created Adam, Allah saw it in his image. And so what do you want it to ask you? You know, in Christianity, you have this concept of God created man in His image meaning in the image of God, Allah surah is the his here is it speaking about Allah Subhana Allah or is it speaking about the mighty of
Muhammad that I am Allah was asked, Is it true Hello, Hello Adam, Adam soldati and Adam Carolla, you can I mean had other caramel Jamia? You said?
Rahim Allah was asked what that means? Allah created Adam and his image. It means an Adam's image. He said What nonsense is that? This is you don't have you must be non Arabic speaker to say something like this. This is Colombo Jamia. This is the opinions of Jamia, it's one of the most deviant sects ever happened and appeared in history of Islam and by the consensus of the scholars, that they're not even Muslims that are the most extreme version of weed in our history. So this opinion or this idea came from there as a limit Muhammad Rahim Allah said
this hadith is saying that his refers to Allah subhanaw taala and there is another narration that Allah subhanaw taala have created the face or the image of the face of Adam not the whole atom, but his face in the same image of Allah subhanaw taala what that means? It means that He Allah subhanaw taala his face is the most beautiful thing as well as human beings Your face is the most beautiful thing and you also your face has eyes and where you hear when you see an Allah subhanaw taala also has a face he has eyes he has hearing Subhana what that is that means that he has eyes like us in the middle on the air no but that's an image it's not exactly the same it's like I say your face
have the image or look alike or in the same image of the moon beautiful round is something that doesn't mean that you ought to moon you know have the same exact feature of the moon I say you have an image anything exist has an image
simple fact anything that does exist has to have an image only thing that in your mind hasn't no image anything none exist has no image or
anything like red
is that something exist by itself
no color red thing Have you seen red walking the street Marcia awesome. I can read
or Kedah Masha Allah mercy walking on the street.
Have you ever seen anything like that? No, that's not a you can see Merson colors, attributes only in your head as an entity by itself does not have an emirate. But and many things like that there is only non existing things has has in your head. But the moment it came out to be existed has to have an image and this image not necessarily to be identicals. So Allah Subhana Allah Allah because he is truly physically exist. He hymns. That's why he has Emmet. And there is many Hadith in Bukhari and others were at home Allahu Allah Surah where Lettieri foon and many things. So the point is, we do believe that Allah subhanaw taala has created Adam and this beautiful image of his and that will not
mean that Allah subhanaw taala have the same features of humans, but there is a commonality as we have eyes we have faced we here we CS, Allah Swatara here Zs has eyes, Allah, Allah has faisons so beautiful, and we stop there.
We'll say Oh, He created Adam and his image and in other image what that makes no sense in Arabic actually.
Or even worse than that somebody tried to get out of this hadith and he said, Oh, he created as Adam in his image anyone the image of that man.
They said there is a man was beaten or there is a man, somebody curse him, then it was awful. Don't curse the face. Don't hit the face because Allah created Adam and his image. They said the only on the image of this man. That's really far. So first of all, there is no this is a fabricated story. That there is a man there is no man or anything like that. Number two, in Arabic language. Yo, pal, Haluk Allahu Adam. Adam. Surah number yo, God. Hello, aloha. Surah Thiago. It's like I tell you. I'm mocking you look like hint.
And yeah, that makes no sense in Arabic. I don't know if it's English mixins or not. But in Arabic, that's like fun. It's like, this doesn't know how to talk, you should say hint looks like you. Right? It's not you look like him. So that's what it is in the HUD, the HUD is referring to a person, it wouldn't even say that. So that's completely dismissed. And
what's the point? The point is leopard halacha in Santa Fe is Anita coin.
Allah subhanaw taala have created you in the most beautiful way, the most beautiful fashion. And that's an honor.
And that's I think that's something that we should one of my lessons that
that that shows you that you have to have that love for Las Panatela the T created you in the best form. And the best way. I was saying to people not long time ago and one of my talk I said to them, You know what, I love my skin color.
I love how I look like
you know why? Because Allah chose it for me.
He loves his skin color. Because it's black, not because it is brown as it was white. Now it is because that's what Allah you so we'll come fill out a hammock a fair shot, he's the one who have given you that color, that image. And guess what, it's a beautiful one.
And he should be proud of that. So I think one of the lowest of the down until everyone here, if you ever think bad about yourself, you feel less low self esteem you don't you look, you know, Allah created you in His image that's in itself, an inspiration, lifting up. And that also make you respect all humanity. Have all that honor and respect for all humanity, that Allah subhanaw taala made you in the best form ever. That shows it, he loves you, He cares for you. And that's that's a very important starting point when it comes to the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. So even with regards to the creation of Adam as the province of Elijah is and have narrated that the when
Allah just as far as the relationship should what he was mentioning that when Allah subhanaw taala created Adam and blew into him, his spirit and the spirit was ascending the feet of Adam and salaam until he and he tried to get up and then it reached his nose and when it reached his nose, he sneezed and so are the mighty said um, the first thing he said when he was created it was it hamdulillah and the first thing the symbolism is very beautiful either medicine um, the first thing he said is hamdulillah and the first thing that ALLAH SubhanA Dada said to him was that hummock Allah and so the relationship that's established between Allah Subhana Allah and His creation is
mercy from the beginning. That being said, we're still in the first verse, Allah subhanho data says to the angels in the data and fill out the FAFSA, I am going to make on this earth a Khalifa this word fill out in this land on Earth.
We're trying to and when I say we, I mean Elon Musk, trying to go into space and all of that type of stuff. Do you believe that we are going to at any point in time live on Mars or anywhere else in the universe?
Whoever wants this one.
Allah says on Earth, they're going to exist humanity yo,
woman ha ha Lucknow como right behind you.
Yes, so I never ever believed that. I mean, but there isn't explicit evidence from the Quran and Sunnah that people will not live on Mars or anything but I just never ever believed that. Allah mentions that we created you from it and you will die in it and you will be resurrected from it from Earth.
But But what if someone said no, but they could live on Mars and fee How could refer to a dunya Matheran? Yeah, no, no, that's just not how I
They can try. Yeah, but what I think we should have come out trying to say there is no contradiction that some individual might be in living in
spaceships living we might have a hotel on the moon in the future, and people will stay there but as humanity
know, we live in this earth and a dime this earth, we're going to stay in this earth. We're going to go anywhere, but doesn't mean that there will not be individuals happening outside all but that's not the pie that is not the default. Yeah
it's very clear that you will be in this earth and then that's why
it's penalized human beings parts of their nature, they are very arrogant.
Yeah, that was my that I created this earth and taking care of it. And we think like, you know, what we had? Yeah, what do you need to do is just make sure that you follow the guidelines of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah will take care of you don't worry about the future of the earth just to care about what you've been asked to do. So you don't cause the harm to this earth and see how it will sustain Allah been sustaining humanity all this years and now you using Oh, you know, like that day and saying there is a star might come in 2000 or 3020 whatever. You know what maybe we should create a rocket that push or like make a bomb that push the earth a little bit. Sell the thing will not hit
the Earth happy inside out. What do you think yourself? God?
Just degrees you know, just come down. Yeah, Allah Subhana Allah, just do whatever you've been ordered to do and live your life moderately and don't worry about the Earth. We have water. Allah subhanaw taala already when he decided this earth, He created this earth he made all measurement for people in this earth. Don't worry, you're not gonna lose anything.
When you're not going to add anything, but just follow the orders of Allah Allah, Allah Allah subhanaw taala will keep you safe and will keep you sustained. That's a great point. You know, like, you know, when people discuss with atheists, they look at the the numbers the odds of anywhere in the universe, all the ingredients being there to sustain life, and they're all here on Earth. And then people are arrogant enough to think of going to another planet that doesn't have the right temperature or atmosphere even if it has water and then say You know, we could live there. But on another note, the type of people who would afford to live there will be the extremely rich and
actually support them leaving the earth and going to
going to live on Mars.
Speaking of atheists, you have the next verse for ALLAH SubhanA data's much Khalifa Mia Khalifa. So Khalifa is translated as Vice Geron, which is one of those words that mean nothing to anybody.
But Khalifa is that which is left behind. So you have one person is replaced by another one generation after the other. So Allah subhanaw taala has left behind, or has placed on this earth, those who will succeed one another.
And don't say this is by someone who doesn't know any Arabic or what have you. I know that's beautiful. So Khalifa doesn't mean leaders, or like the king, or the presidents, like I'm making Adam a ruler on earth. No, or I'm making Adam to replace me on earth. No, it means that Adam will have generations comes after him. And generation after that. They replace one another. What I learned from this, what I learned with this, that we have to psychologically understand this fact, because theoretically we do but sometimes psychologically, we don't know if that makes any sense. And what I mean by that, I mean we act as if we are the only generation
when you put in your head that there is someone will replace me that means a lot of things. For example, maybe you can add some more point for example, that means I have to make sure that this place is good and better for the generation to come is not only my generation, also a to have to means that I am ready to pass that torch or the torch. Some people hold into it like you see sometimes leaders, Yanni harass you been leading this master this community for the last 7060 4030 years kalaskie Let the new generation comes.
You know, I feel threatened when I see the second generation come they should not I should see this as natural phenomenon, that you know what, my children, I need to give them that trust. I should look at them then someone will carry after me. I should not hold into all this power on my hand. And I'm not willing to make them the one who would replace me. Same thing with the youth and so forth. So the word Khalifa for me, it means a lot
lot of meanings actually I learned from the story of Adam and Eve.
And how I make sure that this earth and this community is much much better for the one who will come after me. Because it's not doesn't end with me. That's, I think petroleum companies should understand what the word Khalifa means, is like they behave like no one's coming after.
The word Khalifa we also we say that in sefer, we say about Allah subhanaw, taala, anthracite, who has suffered or khalifa to filmer, they will say, Oh Allah, you are my companion in this journey. And you are the one that I leave behind. Khalifa, you are the one who I leave behind over my family and my wealth. And so it's a beautiful reminder also that as Jeff, what he was mentioning, as far as the next generation, and raising the next generation is sometimes you worry over who is who's going to be taking care of your loved ones, and who's going to be looking after your children. And you're saying to Allah subhana data, you're the one who I leave behind. And so it's really important that
you actually connect that next generation, not to you as the leader. Because if you connect them to you, then it will disintegrate as soon as you pass away your your temporary, but if you connect them to Allah, there's a brother once. Here, click one time, I've never seen him Subhanallah laughter but he was at the masjid and he told me something so beautiful. He said, I tell my children, he said, I tell my children. Do you want to know when y'all will be Muslim?
And he was like, my kids always say, What do you mean, Baba, we're already Muslim. Like he goes, No, no, y'all will be Muslim. When you pray without me or your mom telling you to pray, that's when you will be Muslim. And I thought that was so beautiful. He's not teaching them to, you know, when Baba comes home, everybody starts praying Lord, also mother Isha, he's teaching them that you need to pray independently of me or your mother, because they're not going to be there always with you. Yeah, we're gonna
check on that, I always believe that this description of Adam or this new creation, explained just from that word Califa the angels understood immediately that this is the type of being not like us, because they you know, they don't procreate and get married and so that they immediately understood this is a different type of being. And based on that, it, it could facilitate the next understanding of because they said, Why would you do only to understand why he would put a being like that, that is going to wreak havoc and she shed blood on Earth. And I think a lot of that was came from understanding what Khalifa means this also bursts this particular description I'm making an earth
lit some earlier said that the paradise that Adam was in the Muslim was actually an Earth.
Yanni Jenna, that Adam was in it was not the one and heavens that we will enter Inshallah, after we die. No, it was an earth a special Jana on Earth. And that's an opinion that has value. It has a very strong argument to it's not like a weak opinion or very weak opinion even though I disagree with it. But, and they said, because the last one that I said, I'm making an earth so that means Adam created an Earth. So he will be in the earth not in Jannah. Also, they said agenda is agenda to hold. And Adam did not last forever.
Allah subhanaw taala said about Jenna, that they basically lie a mooch we had in son You will not die. And Adam used to sleep.
And Jenna, they said in denona you don't commit a sin and Adam committed a sin. And Jenna it's basically the daughter Abrar upon the pure and Adam was not purified, was not pure as pure as the the should be when he committed the sin. And Jana is not a place where a bliss will come and a bliss whispered to Adam and to Hawa
or Jana so the set many things like this. So they said never leave it. Never get out of Denon, and he never leave a Jana and Adam left to tender. So but the answer for all this all these description related to Jana, and hereafter, so it will not be a problem. We believe in all this. He talks about agenda after people entering it in the in the hereafter. That's what I'd say Muslim in Ibiza sallam said that people want the Day of Judgment. When they add them. They ask them the asker ask Allah to let us go so we enter Jannah
which then they talk about in the Day of Judgment.
Eternal agenda, eternal agenda. That's right. Then Adam said I was take
Get out of it
and sit down to earth. That's a very clear statement from the process I love shows you that Adam was there. Add to this that Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran Arabic Allah get down from it so to say that had been lost because they were living in a garden in a high mountains in India, I don't know why India but in India, okay and they were sent down you know, down from that mountain to Earth which is some people said that
I it's very it doesn't really goes with that the way the Quran describe it. But what can be understood, what did not by said that first thing, when Adam was created was brought to Earth to see it to witness it to know what is this, you know, and maybe that's where he was taught all in the names. And then after that he was brought up to the heavens, where the angels were ordered to mix it up to him and so forth. So then lived in Denna. Then after that Allah Subhana Allah told us that he knows that this is his destiny.
He knows that the destiny of Adam is to come back to it he will leave it then we'll come back to it. And for me this is so beautiful because look up no pain Rahim Allah said hey you Allah Janata adenine for in when Asuna Hola.
He said, Come to Ghana. Because that's your home.
And he check him out when you go to your father. Do you consider that your home or not? Absolutely. Because my father's house is my house somewhere when you came to your father's house is that you feel oh, that's my home
you know what my father Adam was there
so I feel like going back home
that's in itself so soothing for me.
It's like an internal GPS that's placed in you for you to always want to come home that's why in the bees also Jana people know their way to Jana and their places and their houses and the ranks and the response and Jana natural.
Like the way you know your home and dunya.
So, I always tell people if they didn't do a trend eternity opening, sorry. Opening next Oh, sorry. Are you gonna find it?
So Allah subhana data says me that I don't feel sorry for the angels responded with a question and they say Luffy hammer ucdp who I speak with Dima, are you going to they immediately ask Allah Subhana Allah died are you going to make on this earth? Those who will shed blood and cause mischief, when I noticed that we will be having dinner and we're praising you and exalting you? And sanctifying? You and ALLAH SubhanA data says, I know what you do not know. So speaking of atheism, check them out. The angels are the first ones to pose this problem of evil. How? And why are is evil going to happen on earth? Why is bad things going to happen? Why is blood going to be shed? Why are
people going to be killed? Why are horrible things going to happen? And why are you going to create that which will cause that? And Allah subhanaw taala answers the problem of evil in the Quran saying, I know what you do not know so and so us as Muslims as believers, their ultimate response, we can philosophize, and all of that type of stuff as much as we want. But at the end, Allah subhanho data says, I know what you do not know. And we accept that ALLAH SubhanA data knows what we do not know. You know, first thing is very important. A lot of times when people read this verse, or even speakers, when they read it, they read it in a tone that shows objection. So they're like, and
we and here we are, you got to put him on Earth, and we've been worshipping you. And so the first thing is that angels were not asking to object, they're asking to get more information. And the other thing is, they understood that the only reason to exist is to worship Allah zodion. So they're saying we're already doing that. And we just want to understand why you're going to create a beam that's going to shed blood and wreak havoc and so on and so forth. And and they said, how would they know that? So some scholars said they can mention like four opinions. One, they said that they figured that's what's going to happen because they saw the jinn experience on Earth, the Jinhwan
Earth first and they shed blood and they wreaked havoc and so on. So that's one, the other they said that the angels of course, they're smart, you know, Shahid has an admirer of classical rays of faith, and it's one of the beautiful parts. He explains that angels are not robots, they have brains, they just can't disobey Allah, but they have brains and they they make calculations and deductions. So they were able to because of the substance Adam Allison was created from he was created from the earth. So therefore car can Ilya is going to incline to it and
And when you inclined to the dunya, and materialism what happens? fights and bloodshed and so on and so forth. Then another group of scholars said it could have been that they saw it written in a low and muffled, that, you know, they had access to it, it could have been they they saw it, and others said that Allah could have told them at another point at another time that this is what will happen. So they're just trying to find out why. But the thing about evil witch to give analogy in Dawa
is that Allah subhanaw taala, he puts us on this earth, He gives us His guidance, which is now his light. All right, and, and how does darkness happen? When there is no light, you get darkness, you can't get darkness by itself when there is light. Only when there is no light, you get darkness. So Allah subhanaw taala, his guidance, that's the light. And when people choose to not follow His guidance, then you get murder, then you get theft, then you get all kinds of things. So because we have freewill, we have the choice to either follow the light or not, or not follow it the guidance. And when people don't, that's when there is evil. So it's not that, you know, Allah creates or makes
the evil or makes you do the evil people, by choice decide to Lohana. So if we follow this page of sort of the bucket, we're probably not we're going to probably going to, you know, take all about the well, I just want everybody to know
the thing that Allah, or date or created or made happen on earth, it's either a pure evil,
or pure good,
or there is more evil than good, or more good than evil.
And the last possibility is 5050 5050.
Right, you can think of any other possibility. So 100% Evil 100%, good,
more good than bad, or more bad than good or equal?
Nothing, Allah subhanaw taala made them those are decided on this earth. And that's we're not going to go into example, but I just want you to understand this is this is a rule that I had a son that says, that is nothing almost my god I created or decreed on earth or made an earth
that is 100% evil. Or there is more evil than good, or evil and good or equal.
Nothing Allah subhanaw taala made himself or created, or date that there is more evil than good, or even 5050 So a bliss isn't 5050 Now meaning inherently so and in the US law, either Yeah, that there's more evil than it is always more good than bad. Or it is pure good. There's more good to happen from the creation of shaper, then the evil itself.
give you example, your Tober is way more beloved to Allah. Way more higher level, then the anger that caused by your sins, which is caused by the chiffon but Toba happened because of the sin which is set up and by the cause of the ship Ah, so the outcome of that is way more outweight the problem of the Sun
and no matter him Allah said there is no disagreement between Allah sunnah on this fact or on this issue that nothing else we're gonna have made
he himself because some people said chef a lot about the hammer
and hammer you make hammer Allah didn't create the camera by itself. It's your actions. Okay? But anything that Allah create are made Rudy, there is always more good than bad, or I want you always to remember this.
Just remember that anytime you go through a hardship, you go through trouble you something trouble you. I want you to remember that there is more good than evil. I was challenged once with a very hard example example. A sister walked to me in Toronto. And she said sure.
You can tell I'm a Somali sister.
I was raped when I was teenager in a refugee camps
I was beaten
I left I lost my family
don't know is her father's on the guilt. I was this I was this I was this like she's man. She listed things like no human being can like not it's was so terrible. She sent me Tell me what's more good on bus busts in my life.
And that's real. Then when it gets real.
Then I said to her first of all, don't
ever understand when we say that that we look to the every incident in itself there is no good and raping a woman
there is no good in kicking somebody's out of their homes there is no good and killing an innocent person.
And it's so vague that it's bad and the action of that person but look what Allah subhanaw taala agreed upon you what do you do?
She said I'm I'm I finished my master's what you what you what your work? So work with you and is it what you do? So they just joined the UN. And she said I'm an activist, I said activist and one and protecting girls and raping cases and stuff like that. I said, What have led you to go to that direction?
said my own experience.
I said I think if you never was kicked out of your home, I never ever happened to you. What would be you today?
She was in tears when I said that.
So never thought about it. I'll be just another village girl lives in somewhere in East Africa.
Yes, when you look at this in itself back.
But when you look at the big Allah gotta work according to his timeline,
not yours. And I said, Sister, and you have not seen anything good yet. From this terrible thing that happened to you to know that the good outcome the bad, she's What do you mean? I said, wait until you meet Allah subhanho wa taala.
Because sometimes when we look at the good and the bad, we only look at the dunya. But Allah look at the dunya and the IRA.
That's why people on the hara would say, will be so happy that Allah subhanaw taala because of the death of their son, because of the sickness because of this, Allah raised them live so much in Jannah. And he will know that it was actually the best things ever happened to him in his life.
And that's comes with that comes from what? from attending Shammas classes about, well, who Allah is. And knowing the clock the names of Allah to build that pain in your heart. Sorry.
But it's an important point and beautiful point if you're not gonna fit, so I don't want to just follow the sequence too much unless y'all want to but if there any particular messages, okay. They say they said why? Yeah. Okay.
When she will be in Jenna, you know button is so big. Yeah, that's enough, by the way, for anybody who's wondering Yeah, wow. Which is if you get out them will be looking for will be, you know,
looking for her.
Daddy will be looking for her and stuff like that. And she will be looking for him on the meter. That is the love that angel asked him. Do you love her? He said yes. Okay. Then angel said to her, Do you love him? She said no.
And she actually loves him. But she never expressed that. I mean, that's a story to be told. But they said when he came down to earth, Adam used to look for her in the morning and sleep in the night.
While she looked for him in the morning and in the night.
And when he met her, he said, I've been looking for you every day. And she said, I didn't go anywhere. I was waiting for you here. Even though she was looking everywhere. But she that he said that's the nature of it. Allah knows that this is just nonsense. But people say stuff like that. But what I throw it out what I say about how what Allah's power is out of my best part of it, is that Allah called her a spouse of Adam,
to define the relationship between men and woman is not his girlfriend is not his friend. It's as his spouse. Not just beautiful. What about the creation the reason why she was created to come out I feel like you would be the best person to talk about this as he was in Ghana. And the reason is powerful. You would think throw me in Jana. I don't care how just eat grapes all the time. Chicken fried chicken, I don't want I don't care if I'm alone. I'll just keep eating and relaxing and agenda, having milk, having wine, honey, know that Allah Subhana. Allah created us we are social beings. And we know this when someone is put in solitary confinement, they lose their mind. They
don't even become them anymore. They lose they become crazy. So they the scholars mentioned they said that Adam Allison even though he was in this magnificent place, he became lonely. So Allah caused him to go into the sleep and he created his spouse from him. And that's why the scholars said that
because the only the man was created from Earth, he inclines to the dunya and making money in the markets and materialism and talking about houses and stocks and all that. And the woman was this, maybe this was in the good old days, but the woman was created from her spouse. So she inclines to him. And we still see this really Sydney, the guys doing this work, and she's just waiting for him that she wants to spend time and talk. And he doesn't want he just wants to, you know, they say, men don't think about anything. And don't worry about anything until they get married. When they stop worrying about all things, woman worry about everything until they get married.
They don't worry anymore.
I mean, at least that's how it's supposed to be right? Yeah, that's real man take care of his wife. But
speaking of this, you know, there is a different opinion. Some scholar said actually, that what was created from the same clay that Adam was created from, she was not created from his body. But for me, it is is not that strong opinion, the stronger opinion. She was created from Adam And subhanAllah. Adam when he have she is part of him, when she was sticking out of him as if you can say he became a pure man.
And when she became by itself, she became a pure woman. She's something into been, she's something different. That's a female and that's a male.
And she weren't created from bull a villa is the thing that curve but also the chose that she protects. Yes, I know that she is lean towards and also Adam was not an by himself as him has the angels have the will Dan have the servant all these things agenda with Adam? He had servants and agenda briefing agenda you can imagine I never know animals, whatever you name it. Yet he was so bored.
Which is shows you guys no matter how much fun you have as a single.
Okay, girls and boys. There is nothing like have a spouse.
Even if you're in Jannah so can you think being in Houston.
So Allah Subhana Allah he says,
Allah commanded, ignore alternatives.
Prostrate, commanded the angels to prostrate to Adam. Firstly, the liabilities about stockbroker demeanor caffeine. So you have this introduction of this, the story of Adam is also the story of the original idea or the enmity between this this stage is set between Adam and the children of Adam and a bliss and his progeny those who have tried to mislead. And so it believes, when he enters into the
when he he or Allah subhanho wa Taala commands Adam to not eat from a particular tree, it leaves then initiates his tactics. But something that's beautiful as far as the symbolism is that out of all of the trees of Jannah, there's only one tree, it's a single tree. That's it. That's the only one that ALLAH SubhanA data is rebutted. And if a person reflects on the percentage of the halal and haram in this world, you'll find that ALLAH SubhanA data has made everything had except for a few things that Allah Subhana Allah data has made prohibited for us in this world as well. It's it's it's that it's that symbolism. That's incredibly powerful. And for us when we feel overwhelmed that
the Haram is is prohibited for us. We should remember that the highlights and so much more.
There is a rich man once in Saudi Arabia. We had a dinner. He's very rich. I'm not going to mention his name is famous too.
So he told us Yeah,
I said you religious people, she'll make things hard.
I sit down he said everything haram haram haram haram every I asked about haram haram you know no fun nothing everything haram fu swish ticket these years. So one of my friends he said so and so. He said the problem was not us. He said so what's the problem? Is it you everything you want?
It's not me. It's you everything you're asking about as to how I'm thinking you know, he just sent people this only thing of the Haram he wants to have fun only thing of haram
you know like earlier I had a conversation with someone. You're listening to this weird musics for the gym. Why? Because this is what but it's the only thing make me
feel focused or energy energy to exercise who said that?
The only fun is when me boys and girls together who said that?
It just became embedded. You just leave all the HELOC all otherwise and just make you just focus on one thing you think this is the only thing. So it's pretty good point. Actually based on the story of Adam this what they call the forbidden fruit theory, right? But in psychology it's called the reactance theory where if you told someone don't do something, that's all they want to do, and there was a really interesting experiment where they freshly painted two walls in the bathroom, and you know, high school bathrooms. It's like a graffiti disaster. So they freshly painted both walls and they wrote on one do not write on this wall and they left the other blank guess where everybody
wrote on that wall just the witnesses do not write everybody went and wrote that even if they didn't want to write the minute they read that sign and take a pen out in the room. Let me show you.
So, so if a parent is smart, they should tell their kids the one person in this world you're not going to marry is your cousin. So then they will marry their cousin. Right? Okay. I guess
but to believe that theory what Marian cousins No
I actually I do I don't leash. I am very irritated by that. There's a lot of evidence.
Yeah, I think that theory is actually I would love to see facts about it. But I think that this theory nothing but to promote what's haram? I was gonna I was gonna say this theory really shows you that what a high level it is to be submitting to Allah azza wa jal to be obedient to be a true slave of Allah azza wa jal because when he tells you know you don't fight you don't resist or go the other direction or make an excuse, No means no. But you don't see it everywhere. People i i was told all my life don't eat from the garbage.
who desires never I never want to eat God who desires that is
oh, here the point. The point is not no, the point is the desire
is not about no it's about I have a desire for it. So because of my desire, I did that. But I don't think the theory is consistent just by saying no, it means I will try to make the opposite. I just I just I found I can give you many examples in their Hadith like that where the pope Salam says Do not tell your children don't do something
I don't know.
Subhanallah I've been looking for this hadith for like for like 19 years Every word I've
I heard from someone reliably okay
yes, what did he do? They didn't eat it
I just don't think it is a consistent I think there's other elements for them to write on the wall. It's because you know, people you know, just being you know, one or the other world then.
I don't know why but other but I guarantee you they will write on the other wall to their high school kids are gonna write everywhere. Yeah. I don't know how accurate this is and how, how truth. If you wait a little bit more, you will find out the rug because they're right and the wall without anything. And anyway, so mice anyway, just I think, at least let's agree on. That should not be taking a justification. You know why I'm saying this, because we have people saying, Don't tell your kids haram to steal haram to lie. Don't tell them. Your Quran says don't have Zina. Oh Quran said don't lie. Don't do this. Don't do the Quran has do's and don'ts. So if we say this method of saying
no or don't encourage them to do the opposite, that means Allah subhanaw taala speaking to us in a way, which is not the best way, which is I refuse to take that at least not to be consistent this way. I just have a big problem with this issue. Yes, Leila.
they really do not do this. They have an explanation of that.
Yes, but But my point is, you always can explain to people why that's fine. But still, you can say, You know what, there is a rule. You know what, don't go to this place. Don't touch this. You know, sometimes you have the time for it. Sometimes the trust comes, when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah tells us he did teach us that not necessarily any when he said to Adam, don't eat from the tree. He didn't tell him why
Shavon came and told them why. And that's a great point Shavon came. And he said, Your Lord did not prevent you from this tree, except that you become Mala cane, oh, minute holiday that you'll be angels or that you'd be of those who live eternally. And so that becomes one of the challenges or one of the dangers actually of trying to reason the prohibition or the command. Because if you come up with a false reason, it may cause you to actually then do something that's forbidden. So for example,
shaytaan comes to Adam, and he says, the reason that you're not allowed to eat from this tree is because of you becoming an angel, are you living eternally. And Adam was like, well, these are great reasons. That's not a and so he eats from it. A person might look at an obligation and say that we are commanded to worship Allah subhanaw taala, for purification of the soul in my heart is already really pure. So I don't really need to, I don't really need to do this. A person might look at fasting and say, Well, the reason why we fast is you've probably heard this a lot is to know how the poor feel. That's the reason why we fast. Well, I'm already poor, I know how I feel. I don't need to
fast, right? So he came up with the justification. That's not actually the correct justification, or I remember,
or shortening the prayer of the traveler?
Because of difficulty, right? And so I'm not feeling difficulty. So I or I remember, for example, you with regards to interest or with regards to the prohibition. So for example, a person says, Well, the reason why alcohol is forbidden is if you get intoxicated. And I remember in college, a kid telling me this, he says,
so I can drink one beer because I can hold it, I won't get drunk. Right? And so he came up with the reasoning why, and he figured that he was exempt from the rule. Or I can be alone with a girl no problem, because I don't fear fitna for myself, so I'm fine. So the the danger becomes, instead of just submitting to the prohibition, whether you know the cause or whether you don't know the cause, trying to come up with the cause, and then apply that cause on the prohibition or the commandment. Does that make sense? Okay, what kind of tree
The Quran does not mention what kind of tree the Hadith does not mention what kind of tree and interestingly, the Bible itself does not mention what kind of tree it was, doesn't say apple. So the apple thing was I forget which of the earlier biblical languages the it was a language in which the word for Apple and the word for tree is the same word, but it's just a different like stretch of the vowel. And so many believed that that's where this mistake came from that it was tree. And in that language, some other translators saw it as Apple. And that's how it became the apple and Adam's apple and Apple computers and Apple phones. That's why they have never connected Adam's apple into
just that they're really Yeah, he got stuck. That's an computers have the apple taken out of it, and you and the kids would give them in the old days, they'll give their teacher an Apple because she gives them knowledge. And that's the fruit of knowledge. All that is based on nothing. Yeah, actually, this was very evil to say that this is the tree of knowledge.
This is completely the opposite of what Islam says. Islam said that Allah gave him all the knowledge. And then you say you claim that Allah told him don't eat to stay ignorant.
That's why he doesn't want to eat from the tree. By the way, in our tradition, there is a mention of that of the tree. What kind of tree so I've been a bass Massoud, many of the Sahaba said it was great.
It was the grape tree. So it was a grape, no carp.
And many of the tabby in as well. Some set date some said like there's many other but the most famous one among the early generation was actually a date. A great great fruit a grape tree.
I have something about the
so he said you will be an angel by Adam so ended up making salute to him. What would he any when you want to deceive someone? You bring something higher? Not lower.
You need what kind of car you drive
what is that? Is it
Hyundai Hyundai, the product is nothing less than that.
If I tell you, you know what, I if you do this, you will be driving a Mercedes. Wherever he is if I come to him and he said, I'll stay with you, you know, if you do this, we're going to offer you what's lower than Honda.
Ford. Go ahead. What do you have?
A Porsche no lower like your Genesis. This is the top of the line. Okay, so I tell you, you know what you got, for example? Sorry.
Santa Fe. Hyundai is one of the top three most reliable cars.
Take a Mercedes over it.
I'm gonna give you what's your is yours, Nam? What's yours? 20.
Okay, we're gonna give you you're gonna give you you know, a to two crolla in 1994.
Is that something you will trade for? Eblen? Yeah, because it's slower. So he saw the angels making salute to him. How at least come and tell him you will be like angels. He could have said to you, please. You know what they just meant to do to me that day? Why would they want to be one of them? Play but I feel like you're gonna give me a better explanation than the one I have. I had an explanation that or I heard the only from the scholars. that satisfied me a lot. Okay. He said, this shows you how incredibly incredibly crafty Iblees is that he used the money salams love for Allah to make him disobey Allah. This is the explanation. They said that Adam Ali Salam, he saw the angels
even though they prostrate it to him. But he saw their level of worship of Allah azza wa jal. They worship nonstop, tirelessly, they don't sleep, they don't rest. And they're always worshiping Allah azza wa jal, and he wished, because he tired and he had slept, to be able to worship at their level. So when IBLEES told him this is a tree and hold everlasting life, and Adam doesn't just want to live long. In his world who lives long, the angels angels, so he understood that I will be like them and I'll be able to worship like them. And he used his love incredible love for Allah azza wa jal to get him to disobey. Well, you know, you just reminded me when you go to like Hajj, like between the
group leaders and the like, shoe can everybody sometimes you'll come across people and, and even people, there are people who go to Hajj every year, so people will be like, I've gone to Hajj 10 times I've gone to Hajj 18 times I've had to hedge 20 times. And then they ask you like, how many years have you gone to heart and you're like once, twice, right? You kind of almost feel shy. So you can imagine them being created yesterday, and he's in Jannah. And the angels have been worshipping Allah for 1000s of years or what have you. And even if Bliss has been around for so long, he might have belittled or felt like I want to be someone who worships Allah subhanaw taala for an extended
period of time, like what do you think that makes sense? Absolutely.
And another word, he said, If you want to please Allah to be like the angels and worshiping Allah, eat from this tree, so you will become like them.
And that's what we call the die. Innovation. Religion is to worship Allah in a way other than what Allah ordained for you. Allah did not create you, Adam to worship Him like the angels. Allah doesn't want you to worship Him like the angels. You have your own way and they have their own way. But when you choose for yourself other than what Allah chose for you, that's where you put in diligent something, it's not from it. And it is something so early a ship on learned how to trick human beings, you come them from the area where they love the most. And that's why ship on told His followers, I known something that human beings will never repent from it.
They will keep doing the same for the rest of their life. They said what he said innovations have never done
any who want to repent from celebrating Molad which is coming soon. Yeah, he loves the Prophet, sync for the Prophet. Make the car
up you beautiful, who will think to repent from praying to rockers
who will think this is sin? Who will think that making drought or liquor is can be a sin or something wrong? What's wrong with that? That's beautiful.
But it's not
not that easy to come in Allah elaborado it means to take you farther away so she knows that from earlington every time and that's something I'm not playing Rahim Allah mentioned actually, as one of the five of this
story. We have to talk about Fidel aka the moon or bakery Martin Fatah buddy.
But before we get to the Toba two questions, okay, we established Adam Allison was very smart. People need to understand that people think he was just this innocent. But you've Alinea to just eating grapes. He was very smart. Okay. Now, Allah subhanaw taala, as we mentioned earlier, and beautiful. Yeah, no doubt.
Now I'm dark. Into the microphones. Yeah, you can just say that.
So we'll have it on record. He's beautiful. He's this and he's dark. Yes. This they said his name was he was not black. No, he was Tantras. People say he was a black man. No, it's not like
they said, kinda who am I? And he he was a tent and for him.
So he was introduced to Iblees. Adam in her locker well is urgent. He has a need that believes he's an enemy to you and to your spouse. Don't let him take you out of Jannah. And you will suffer Adam, okay. How he's smart. And he's introduced like I told you, there's a there's a scammer in Houston. And this is his picture. And then you next week, he told me Oh Allah, he took $10,000 from me. I'll be so absurdly, I showed you his picture. For how can someone so smart be introduced to the guy he might trick you? And then he still tricks him?
For that, so this is a rhetorical question, or is it? Yeah, I mean, it's a real question. I mean, I mean, there's an answer. I'm just throwing it out for fun now to make it exciting.
Create some excitement, because he came to him and he said, What Casa Mahoma in de la Kamal Amina Nasri. He said, I swear by Allah. What I am telling you is the truth. I had never thought
that someone will make his oath by Allah. Like
he never thought that there is someone will be so evil to that extent. It just never crossed his mind.
Lekman hada Anna Billa hada Anna
you sometimes you will be deceived by someone who use the religion and use the deed you will you feel like weak. If you're very righteous. I meant to be like, okay.
You know, if you can hurt the world he lived in. I don't even know if he ever heard hola Aslan, let alone Allah in the name of Allah azza wa jal. And today it's funny like today when someone swears to too much. Like I think he's lying. I met this guy. He said, This guy was telling all his life's problems so I can help them out. Monetarily said I started to feel he's a liar because he kept saying, and we'll let him I'm telling you the truth and walk so beloved. I never accused you of not telling the truth. But now I think you are not telling the truth.
People swear a lot, by a lot means they're lying.
Type the second question.
Oh, man, I forgot the second question. The first one was,
yeah, so Allah Allah says in surah Taha Welaka, the hidden
hidden Adama Illa. Adam, I mean, cabello, financier, Willem Nigella who asthma? So some. So what did he forget? We took the covenant from Adam and he forgot and we didn't find any firm resolve or commitment. So what did he forget? It's one tree. Don't freak, don't eat from it. How can he forget?
And it's up to the point that it's it was so it was admirable that he forgot the one rule that some scholars made some money. It's almost like an excuse. They said, No, no, he didn't forget to not eat from this tree. He ate from the same kind from somewhere else. And if it was, if it were a grape tree, they said he was told not to eat from this grape tree but Allah meant from three grape tree he didn't eat from this one he ate from another one over there. Because he couldn't young doesn't make sense. But he couldn't explain how he could he forget one rule. How can you forget?
For I don't know if you liked this explanation or not. But it made a lot of sense to me. And I don't know if there's something else I would love to know what's out there besides this. They said that.
Adam Allison what he forgot, wasn't that he shouldn't eat from the tree. He forgot because the tree he was told if he eats from it, he will have everlasting life. He will live forever. He forgot that Allah told him his lifespan to be 1000 years. And he knew that and he even donated 60 years from his life to the old era Salaam. So so as a prophet and well know someone knowledgeable, he would know the Creed 2000 Already did they eat a fruit and then live longer than what Allah planned for you? Does that make any sense?
This was one of that came in the Hadith. What you just said that nobody saw Salam
said that Allah subhanaw taala let Adam to look at all his children, who's going to live after him and he from the prophets and messenger from his children. Then he said, Who's this among them? He look have a shiny face. The angel said, he, this is your son, David that would, he said, how long you will live? The angel said, Allah said to him that you will live 60 He said, How long I would live, he said, I will live
or 40. And I will he said how long you I would love he said 1000 Then he gave or donated from his life to his son that would say he will live 100 years, then when he the time came to die. And he was told to because angels only take take permission from prophets before the collective souls said it's your time to die. Then he said, No, I was told 1000 years I will live and it's not 1000 yet. Then, then the process that I've recited, find the same verse, we have taken covenant from him, then he forgot, he recited this verse. But that doesn't mean that this verse applied to this incident only, it could be also applied to the tree that he forgot about the tree. Why? For a simple reasons, one
of the reasons what what answers one of the answer would be the timeline that we think we think Yanni he was made the angel made suit for him on Tuesday, and the next Tuesday, he entered Jana, and you know, by the end of the month, he was the Showtime came No, it could be 1000 years.
He could loved our aura 50 years or 100 years or whatever it is. We don't know how long it takes and you forgot.
And that's the nature of human being. That's why maybe something he forgot and his children for God. There is also another interpretation for this verse related to another completely incident which is when Adam was sent down to earth, him and his wife they used to have children and every time they have a child the child will die.
So the Shavon came and told his mother
to E A said if you want your son to live name him up did Hadith
don't name it used to name him Abdulhadi hadith is not from Allah has names. So they name him I've done Hadith and he loved
and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada repro implemented him. How do you do that? Because he's the servant of Alhadeff. And that's not Allah's name. And he knows all the names. Allah wants to tell him the name and he didn't from his own names, too. So here he repented and and maybe some celebrity started the verse what up by the end he didn't either. We told Adam not to listen to the shape on a ship on mislead you once in the heavens. And now he came into Earth to mislead you again. So he fall again for the shape Ah, so that's mean cobbly and he fell Jana fantasy Well, I'm knitted lo asthma Nassima Barbara Hobi Szczepan. He forgot what the shaytaan did to him in the past. And now he fall into the
trap of the Chapin again. So there is a multiple interpretation, this hadith. It's the Sunnah and it is also authenticated by if you Mr. Ahmed, sorry, and it is authenticated by many of the scholars now shall that's why you don't mess with sugary
just remember something really nice about the about the fruit or the tree Allah Subhana Allah said, Let acaba de Shedra. Which is really beautiful. So don't come near the tree. Because if it just said don't eat from the tree, then I just come one day and I take that fruit and I
guess I can smell it, you know, just touch it.
Almost. But it says don't even come near the tree, which is how you use is your attitude towards all the things that are that are haram. Look, you don't tell specifically what's the other thing that allowed that it says don't consider all right. That's right. I thought I was alone come near to Zina not put all the things there and then just don't do that no longer. There's a lot of interesting aspects with regards to that too. Because even when the law says Latok Rosina, if there's one thing I mean, even what was shaytans plan with Adam and Hawa is to reveal their nakedness, right? And Allah subhana data says, Do not follow throughout the Chaillot in my model can be so evil fascia you
want to follow Allah in my data, like Satan's plan. Allah says do not follow the footsteps of shaytaan in NAMA, he only commands you to evil and fascia in decency, I don't know how you translate fascia, but in decency, right, but it has that connotation of that which leads to Zina and that you speak about Allah subhanaw taala what you do not know so Shavon loves nakedness. shaytaan loves to bring about these faux Irish, but to this verse where Allah subhana data says for tilaka I don't know but you can imagine for diabetics shaytaan mix disobeyed Allah
have no data Adam disobeyed Allah shaytaan response to the disobedience with more arrogance, more justification, more rejection and I'll add them response to the act of disobedience with repentance and seeking ALLAH SubhanA data's forgiveness, or been a novel I'm known for Santa.
Elena Kwinana Minahasa. And they said, Our Lord, we have oppressed ourselves. And if you do not forgive us and have mercy on us, we will be of the losers. So Allah says Fatah de Moura behave, these are the Kalama these are the Candyman. These are the Kanima that Allah subhanaw taala taught to Adam. And so the font here indicates immediacy, Allah says, so Adam learned from his Lord words, these words this drop, forget about it. And so Allah subhanaw taala immediately accepted his repentance in the hotel, Abu Rahim, this beautiful relationship that we have with Allah subhanaw taala that we're so fortunate to have with Allah is that of when we sin, ALLAH SubhanA and we repent
to Allah, Allah immediately forgives us. And you know, I've always remember this story. I had a guy once who came to the masjid. He wasn't Muslim. And he came and he sat across the desk from me. And he had questions. And he asked me one question, and then he asked me another question. And then he asked me another question. And he was asking questions that were all like, polemics. They were all like, it felt like he had went to an answering Islam website, and he had copy pasted everything. And he came to read them to me. So he's asking about tattoos. And he's asking you about apostasy. And he asked, he's asked me about the age of Ayesha, and I'm just answering one after the other. And he's
not giving me any sort of, like, Yes, I understand, or Yes, that makes sense. He's giving me a complete poker face every single time, I'm not able to read this guy at all. And I'm just answering one after the other, one after the other. And then as soon as he's done with his list, I've answered everything to the best of my ability. He goes, I have one last question.
Is it true that accepting Islam forgives all of your sins? And as soon as he said that, as soon as he said that his face in front of me completely changed. Like I no longer saw, like this, you know, opposing interrogator, I saw a person who was completely weighed down by a lifetime of sense. And in that moment, I realized why like I'm gonna bring to the US pulled back his hand when he went to give it out to the province on the lightest syndrome. And he said, I'll accept Islam on one condition, what's your condition, that my sins are forgiven? Like sins are a burden, like they're hard to carry over a lifetime. And then I realized why Islam is reward for accepting Islam is so perfect that a
person starts their life fresh. And I watched this video even today of why Latino Muslims are accepting Islam, and it was a girl, one girl, she was talking about how, you know, she had an abortion.
And she was like, it was incredibly difficult. I had like, I was suicidal. I, I felt so burdened by this what I did to my baby. And so what kept me sane is Islam, that I accepted Islam, and that I'm able to feel believe that I'm accepted by God and that I'm sinless. So, Adam, sin was forgiven.
Adam, is sin was forgiven. And Amara indicated he was forgiven instantly, there wasn't a long journey in a wait period, or pick a number and sit down. He was instantly forgiven. Which when you look at the story, in the Quran, as opposed to in the Bible, for example, in the Bible, I mean, where do I start? First of all,
he, well, even the Bible itself has passage against that same story. There's a passage that says, no child shall shall bear the sin of the parent nor a parent be responsible for the sin of the child. That's what I'm really against your whole story that Jesus have to come and die later on, because God couldn't forgive the sin that came a long time before. That's one thing
though you're born a sinner. And
we Steven like in St. That will tell someone like if I bought this window right now, would you pay for like, No, I didn't, I wouldn't pay for I didn't do it. Like, why are you going to be born with a sin that when it happened, not only did you not do it, you didn't even exist is different than I was in the same room when he broke the glass. I didn't I wasn't even born yet. And yet, I have a share of that sin. And I gotta tell you something. We used to have this little that will trap you know, I tried this with a missionary one time. I said, Okay.
I said, you know, in Islam, you have to start off with the Islamic version in Islam. We believe that Allah is forgiving, and so long as you sincerely repent, then everything you do Allah Subhanallah can can forgive and pardon it. Do you guys believe the same thing? Is your god forgiving? Of course now he has to say yes, of course. Yes.
said, When Adam I listen, I'm sinned and he ate from the tree. And he felt bad and he cried and he repented, did God accept his repentance? And the guy looked at me and he said, Yes, he did. I said, then why someone had to come die for.
Meaning Why did Jesus have to come down for this interview was already forgiven? And he was just like this. So I was like, great. This is my new best friend. I start using it all the time. I'd use it on this one guy. He was a little more savvy. I said, when Adam repent, even if it backfires, is you still when I said when Adam repented? Did God forgive him? He just looked at me straight and he said, I don't know that he ever did repent.
I was like, wait a minute, are you telling me this righteous man, this prophet that Allah put them in on gin and Jana and he could eat and do what have you? And he had one rule, and he ate from it. And when Allah reprimanded him, he was like, yeah, he just finished the character will never repented, would you repent? He's like, Yes, I work. And you told me others better than us and he wouldn't repent. And then again, he was stone faced so it works both ways. Because the concept doesn't make sense. Aslan.
Okay, we have five minutes left, so we can pray. We want to wrap it like point point point point point, okay, until the five minutes left. So things like you know, people think about it. Okay, for me, start even though Adam have seen The heavens tell, have seen Allah subhanaw taala talk to Allah yet he committed a sense. So you know what? The merciful yourself and other people who committed sin, because we haven't seen what Adam did, but he's still weak enough to commit sin. The point is to repent to Allah.
Man, I'm trying to think of a rapid point. It's kind of hard. But one of my favorite points from Adam, it said, um, that he learned is that when is it allowed for a person to use destiny as an excuse for your past? For your past? Adam, the province of the licenses in white and Muslim, the Adam and Musa actually had a discussion and Musa said to Adam, you were in Paradise, and you ate from the tree and you brought us all here? And so Adam, as Adam said, Do you hold me accountable for something that was written 40 years before I was created? And so the province of Eliasson have said, so Adam defeated Musa Adam defeated Musa and so a person can't use Destiny Cadet as an excuse to
continue to sin but a person can use destiny as a constellation for their past that this was something that was written for you you don't use it as a justification for now but you use it as constellation for your past up to the repent after they repented of course
I've got a little man over here yes
yes what's your question
Great so he said if the there are good gin and Bajin Great question there are good gin Imagine if the bad gin whisper Why don't the good Jen whisper just the same?
Is a faith right there?
Because they don't whisper
good generally don't whisper good journalists. They're good. That's why they stay by themselves.
But the angel angel to you and tell you to do something good. But you make the choice to listen to each one of them. Good. Okay, rapid point I'm just gonna give you a narration that is not authentic that when
I mean just people repeat this we don't know where Adam and Islam came down on earth. I said this a class one time and an uncle came to me he's like, everybody knows he came down in Bangladesh.
He was so shocked down so we do not know where he came down. And just the fun one is some scholars said that when he came down he came down in India and some of the leaves of Jana came with him and I not making this up they said and that's why the best spices come from India Allah hogwash I thought you're gonna say the mangoes also it's not true that the Met and did not have to Rafa there is no any proof for that. Okay, Allah said to the angels, I know what you don't know about Adam. Okay, so Allah Subhana Allah expecting from you clicking from Adam and his duration so much. You are very powerful creation.
So remember this every time you think of yourself less Are you think of yourself not much. Remember what Allah says about you? I know of him and his children obviously what you don't know. Make sure that the last panel is proud of you. Now mashallah, you're really good at these one liners.
How about this? Adam shaytaan expelled your father and your mother from paradise. So don't let him expel you from Paradise too. Are you good to me, man. I just had one. I lost it. Yeah, go ahead. I just had one.
I just had the words of repentance of Adam, was I asked you by Mohammed or by Jehovah
Amid this is a fabricated story on Allah said where did you find this? He said I thought rotten in your in your throne. Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah so I asked him what Muhammad This is a fabricated story. So it's not true
either mighty salaam was created by the two hands of God, very good which is an honor for you every other creation created by the words of Allah except Adam is the only human beings that to look at him with his hand and he he fashioned him with his own his hands out of God with his two hands and the localized hands, not like our hands. His hands belong to him. Like we don't know how he is we don't know how his attributes looks like. Yes, if Allah subhanaw taala bans someone from Allah Jana, there's no way they're gonna sneak back in past the guards and the cameras there's no way. So they said if Allah subhanaw taala kicked a bliss out Carla Raj minha for in Nikka rajim. Get your go out
of it. And your New York accursed and you have my cursor until the day of judgment. So quickly, they said how did he sneak back into a Jana? And some scholars just one answer here. They said he not necessarily was kicked out of agenda but a horrid human How can mean the high rank that Allah put them amongst the angels, and he kicked them out of the high rank. And then he made it he came back into agenda because he never was kicked out of it, to whisper to them, or they said he could have whispered without coming physically into agenda Allah Adam was giving an auditor. Bliss was giving an order and Adam was forbidden from something Adam did not. Adam broke the rules by doing something
prohibited, which is don't eat, while bliss break the rules by not fulfilling an order makes a Jew from Adam's sin was lesser. And from this dilemma said, it is much lesser, much lesser to do a forbidden thing than that to leave obligations. That's why leaving Salah is way more higher than drinking alcohol as a sin. And a lot of people don't understand that.
You know, any being bad to your parents is worse than adultery.
Be to your mom, it depends on the level of the book to validate it is it worse because it's one of the major major combat major, major orders, a lot of people think that it is Oh, It's haram. We don't know how to do that I stay so far away but obligations they are relaxed with it was supposed to be one line thing was good. Also, because good deeds get multiplied and bad sins count is one so it harms shape on more for you to stay away from doing a good deed or an obligation than to perform a good deed
really quickly has that was the first sin committed in the heavens and it was the first sin committed on Earth.
And v. So Bobby, or the first son of Adam had envy of his brother that led him to killing him and, and we caused Iblees to refuse the command. So it wasn't racism.
I hate when people say that IBLEES was the first racist I get out of here with that. You know what? Bliss was a great act of worship.
But the sin of the heart of this led him to be the worst creation ever. Watch the sins of the hearts. Watch what you watch your feelings. Watch your emotions. Watch logic. I'm better than him. I'm from fire. He's from mad. That logic that you use a woman pass bliss as fast as he made this logic when you make the logics when you make the feelings which is the envy the jealousy the reason for you to disobey Allah watch that most of our sins comes from these two
there's a lot to be said. Yes, okay.
but the question is is that angels
provided an answer
and we think that price give us like
for other areas of that whether it's challenges that we face or
or even the love of Allah legislated for us.
I can only respond to the first one, the first one. Yes, you can take a lesson from that and what she was saying
