Hello pamesa Bella
the ADDIE model,
smilla Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen salat wa salam, wa salam ala BR mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi has made them about cinematic language
finalists and of course of study of the fuselage scene.
We heard about a story, a man comes to the province that Allahu alayhi salam from the Quraysh His name is obeying the heart of some of the scholars of the sea. They differ as to which man it was exactly. But now Thea believes it was who may not have other said it was, well if they ask why the mouse, and he comes to the process of selling with a decaying bone, and he puts it in the face of the process, Adam? And then he asked the question, Who is going to bring this back to life, and he crushes it so that it begins to turn to ashes, and one ratio, he even blows it in a very obnoxious way, in the face of the promise of a long war. So when he does this, the prophets that alarm
wireless and responds and says, Allah will bring this back to life, as well as you and then he will enter you into the fire. This is what the prophet SAW said to him. And so they say that sort of they are seen from verse 77, until the end, is a response to this type of person, number one who denies the resurrection. And number two, he is he's very aggressive in his attitude towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and the teachings of his religion.
And then and what happens to you as he brings many rational arguments in order to explain to this arrogant person who's denying the resurrection? Why it is absolutely the case that Allah has the power and the ability to bring the dead back to life for these arguments, they will tackle this issue from many different
So this verse we covered last time, Allah says oh lm you're on insulin, can you not can man not see that we have created him from a drop, meaning the drop of fluid that you born from feta wha ha see mama been and yet he is a Hussien. The word Hossein refers to a person who is not just argumentative, but he argues about the wrong things. You know, some people they have a habit of arguing with people. They don't care whether they're right or wrong. They just want to argue, yeah, am I saying this type of person? What is he arguing about? he's arguing about something that they can No, there not be any doubt about that Allah has the power to resurrect the dead. Yet he is argue
horsey means to argue in a bad way about the wrong things. And he's been a Thumper. He said that means that he's not indirect about his arguing some people sometimes they say nasty things in an indirect way. Have you ever seen that? somebody makes a joke in a sly way? You don't know whether he's speaking nicely or whether he's being sarcastic. Some people are indirect in the way they mock others. Allah say no, he's been meaning he's clear and open in the way he argues about Gods. He's got no qualms about saying the most obnoxious things about lots of Canada. And to be honest, this is the case in our towns where we have very militant atheist, for example, the way they speak about
God, God's religion in in a way that is, is very aggressive. Yeah. So this is what happened.
The time of procurement happens still today Allah said, this is this type of person,
reflect over how he is created that once upon a time he was nothing but a lowly fluid, something that you wash off your body. And yet he's arguing about the greatest one colossal cannot Allah.
Then Allah says, Allah, Allah Masada that this person he puts forward method. Some said it means he puts forth examples about God. Yeah, some people, for example, they say, if there really isn't God, then why is the poverty in the world? If God really does exist? Why doesn't he show Himself to us here right now? I'll tell you about the story that happened to me when someone said that to me, tell me about a story. In college, no. Well, they, they have this, a cop forgot the name of the type of lesson is, but it's like,
the form today takes his lesson. And the idea is to try and speak to you about spiritual things sometimes, and just to stop debates and discussion in the classroom. What was that, quote?
psats will probably change it now. It was that type of lesson. And the teacher.
I think either he was negligent, or he was deliberately trying to provoke the class, he started a discussion about God. Now bearing in mind that most of the parts were Muslims. And they were about three white people in the class. Two of them were like, gothics, you know, the ghost people.
So he said, You know, this discusses about God does God really exists and all the rest of it. So this, this is one of the gills. She comes out and she goes, look, if God really does exist, why does he come down to this table right now? Now, when she said that, I got so angry. I said, Who are you forgot to come down for? Everyone started to like, yeah, carry on, egging me on. I mean, in hindsight, it wasn't the best thing to do to get, you know, to become angry like that. But you know, people do this. They say this, these kind of things about a lot, and they're very aggressive. And so my explanation was, look, you're no one for love to come down for in the first place. Anyway, that's
besides the point. The fact is that the belief in Allah is part of our human nature, is something that we are born believing in Allah, there's no way of explaining intellectually our origins, except that they must be a creator at some point in some way. But besides intellectual understanding, there is also a spiritual understanding that people have intuitively a belief in God, that is our position. Therefore, God does not need to be proved to be existing. Rather, he exists already. And we know that he does. So anyway, I don't know why tell you that story. But yes,
there are people that put forward examples about God, so long as he said, that what they do is they imagine a law to have the same ability as human beings. And with that analogy, they start to reject things, for example, resurrection resume, I mean, seriously, if someone is cremated, and his ashes, I saw his ashes scattered in the five oceans in the world? And are you telling me that God's gonna bring him back to life? Like, seriously? I'll just pause for a moment what you're saying is that, is it possible for a human being to collect those ashes and bring them back together? And then do something to bring the person back to life? Because it's impossible for a human being you're saying
it's impossible for God? Is that what you're making an analogy there? Baba masala. It doesn't make sense. Do you think God has the same ability as man?
onesie Hahaha, that's why Allah adds that he does this whilst forgetting his own creation. I don't even being think where did I come from? I mean, let me just pause the scenario here about questioning God. Let me question my own existence. Where did I come from? Exactly. I was born to parents. Okay. And where did they come from? It goes back to the first human being and Where did he come from? It goes back to the origins of the universe. Now, am I seriously going to believe that 80 million cells line themselves up perfectly in order to start the Big Bang by themselves? Like, am I seriously going to believe that? I mean, you can put all the terminology you want in there and the
veneer of science, but ultimately, what you're telling me is that you know what, then something happened by itself. And bang, all of this what we see around us magically appears? I mean, you expect me to believe that when I see a Hulk or am I gonna forget my own origins? So now I'll tell you says nesea but this time
let's see what means to forget. What does it mean he forgot his own creation? He says there's two opinions. The first is that it means that he's become he's become distracted about his own origins. Number two opinion is that he deliberately ignoring this question that hang on a minute, where did we come from? Where did I come from when I see a Hong Kong
Paula may you Sheila Varma who hear me This is the question that a wave of answer promises. He said, who will bring back these bones?
While they are a meme, the word of a meme comes from Rama which means something is decaying. Something is rotting. This is important part of the argument who will bring these bones back to life while he amin whilst they are decaying. Now when something decays, what happens to it?
What happens to something when the case
rots away? And what happens when something walks away?
Smells okay. Imagine a bone is rotting away was if you were coming, if you came back to that bone after a year, what would you see? Same size or different size?
Exactly. So what's happening to the rest of it?
Yes, is dissolved. Very good. Abdullah is dissolving into the ground is vanishing here. So he says, who's going to bring this bone back to life when it is basically turning into dust and vanishing?
What is the response to this person?
Allah says first argument, first rational argument for Yoshi, her a lady insha, Allah Mara Wahhabi coonley hultin. Ali, listen to this, say the prophets are some is being instructed to respond to the argument of that person. Now what that teaches us is that if we hear someone saying something nasty about law, saying something mocking allows religion, we cannot be silent. Or say, respond, say something to this person, which will make him either feel
silly for saying that all perhaps to think you know what, I was wrong? And you're right. Whatever the case, you need to say something. What should you say? You're in a lady insha? Allah Mara, the one who will bring it back to life is the one who brought it into existence in the first place.
This is the first argument.
You think that God cannot bring the dead back to life? Well, let's rewind a little bit. Those dead people. They were alive once upon a time, true or not? Yes, they were before they were alive.
Where were they? before you were born? Where were you?
Okay, but obviously, they wouldn't say with alarming denial. So, they would have to say we were nothing nothing right we were non existent. Okay. So, at one point you came into existence, now, the one who brought you into existence from nothing? Is it more difficult to bring you into existence from nothing or to bring you into existence from your bones? Which one is more difficult?
The first one is to bring you into existence from nothing is far more difficult to to raise resurrect your dead body. So if you deny resurrection? Well, what about the fact that you wrote integration from nothing? So if Allah can do the more difficult thing, why do you deny the more easier thing? Yeah, this is the first mushroom argument. Interesting. Allah never said the one who halaqa a one on one was the one who created it the first time Allah said, and Sha there's a difference. The word antiA means to make something rise. Yeah. And to develop something the Arabs would call upbringing tencha the idea of upbringing something is tension selaginella never said he's
the one who created you the first time he said he's the one who created you and may develop you into who you are. Yeah, there's an extra meaning they're the one who you're denying the one who you deny can resurrect not only brought you into existence, but he also made you into the man you are today. Yeah, he made you in fashion you into who you are today. Well, who are big curly, halkett Ali. And then Allah said, and he is regarding all creation, hunting is natural common, which refers which makes the meaning more emphatic as if to say not cool little hunt, all the creation, coolly help every single creation, all of creation. He is what Ollie all knowing.
Allah points towards his knowledge. What does the knowledge of Allah have to do with resurrecting dead bodies?
We can answer this question. Why did Allah tell us about his knowledge in that first of all, what does it have to do with resurrecting the dead?
asked this question right at the beginning is Oh,
Okay, so it's about a future event that no one knows about.
is true, but Allah said he is
About every creation, knowledgeable. So it's about the here and now.
What does knowledge have to do with it? Yes or no?
absent very good. You know, Robbie, what did it mean? The bone starts to decay and what happens to it disappears, or you think it disappears, the breakdown of the bones into tiny particles that scatter around and disappear. Who knows about those? Allah knows about them. So Allah knowledge is an integral part of our belief in the resurrection, because somebody may think you know what, there is a story about a man actually.
He lived a life as a sinner. And then when it came to the time he's going to die.
He started to think about things seriously, as many people do want for immigration laws start to come to that question. So he said to his family that when I die, what should you do with me?
cremate me Yes. And scatter my ashes
into the sea. Yeah. Why? Because he genuinely failed, that Allah would punish him. And it's very interesting story. Because, in a way, isn't it denying the ability of God to bring him back to life? He thinks he can scatter his ashes so that he can somehow evade the knowledge of Allah. But what his what his intention was, was the Oh Allah, I feel you so much, that I don't want you to punish me. Yeah. And it's because of this, that the person said this man was entered into paradise. Yeah. So he was ignorant, but he was genuine. Yeah. So people when they think about, you know, decaying bodies, they immediately think you know, how people are just disintegrating into nothingness and you're
saying that you're going to be brought back to life. It doesn't make sense. Allah says, I know where every piece of you lies, whether you're in the sea, whether you're in unmarked grave or whether you are in in the graveyard, Wahhabi Coulee, Halperin.
This is the first rational argument. Now there's three lessons we learned from this, these two verses number one, our origins should humble us when you think about what Allah said. That Who were you once upon a time you were just a note of a note of a means that lowly fluid that you are born from? This is our origins. When you think about this, a man should humble himself and not, you know, not become arrogant. In your character. Remember where you came from? Number two lesson is proof of resurrection is inside of us. Allah said onesie, aha, this person is forgot his own creation. If you were to think about how Allah created you from nothing, you would not doubt being resurrected.
Therefore, a proof of resurrection is inside your own self when you look in the mirror. In fact, if you were to reflect you are seeing a proof about your own resurrections. Thirdly, a lesson in that one, be humble, but be smart. Allah ordered the processor to give a response. Isn't that true?
So what does that mean? It means that if you hear someone saying something bad about Islam, about Islam, not about you about saying, Listen, you're very fat person, or he doesn't use many or whatever. This is a personal insult. We're not talking about this. You have the choice. You want to put someone straight you can if you want to turn the other cheek, you can. But if someone makes a mockery out of Allah's religion, that you have a choice to say, You know what?
It's up to you. You want to, you know, look around the room earlier, Maria Dean, it's up to you. You want to insult Islam? It's no skin off my nose? No, you cannot. You have to respond. You have to pluck up the courage and the words to respond in a wise articulate way for you. Usually the lady insha Allah, Allah say that the one who will bring it back to life is the one who created and raised it initially. So in that way, be humble, but be smart. I remember once when the cartoon fiasco about the process that was taking place.
Somebody said on an interview, that, you know what?
Why, why Can you forgive?
Charlie Hebdo for making those cartoons about the Prophet Mohammed. So I said, Well, can you forgive?
I thought to myself, What a ridiculous question. How can you forgive someone for wronging another person?
How can you do that? I mean, if someone came up to you,
and sitting next to you was your friend or just somebody you don't even know. And they slapped him across the face. You became offended. So did that person and then the person does use it. Forgive me. Say, bro, you just slap this person over there. You asked me to forgive you for isn't it? It is this
nonsensical. You insulted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you want me to forgive you on his behalf? Who am I to forgive you on behalf of the processor? It doesn't make sense. In fact, I love this man, whoever offends him has offended me clear and simple. Yeah. So, anyway, be humble, but be smart.
The second argument, la dee da de la comida, shuddering. Now, this is very interesting. second argument is the one who will bring the dead back to life or this decaying bone is the one who made for you, mina szegedi, Akbar from literally the green tree. Here this policy is not referring to a green tree like some magical mystical green tree out there is referring to a tree that is full of life vibrant beaming with life not like a withering away tree. Yeah. So he's Allah said the one who made for you the tree which when it is vibrant and green,
you are able to make now from it fire from it 30 there and to mean who to produce, you can use that tree that is green environment to make file for either and to mean who to produce, and they buy you can Kindle a flame, what does that mean? It means that
just take a moment and step back here, you can create file, which is hot and dry, from something that is wet, something that is moist. And what is the opposite of the two I mentioned something that is something that is moist and cold, sometimes moist and cold, you can use it to make something that is
dry and hot. These opposites, aren't they these are total opposites.
But unless you reflect some scholars said this is referring to the idea that human beings they can take a tree cut it down and make it into a source of fuel for fire.
Once upon a time, it was something that was green with with water inside of it. And now you can use it to make fire that is something amazing. Other scholars said no, this is the actual trees in Arabia at that time, which are known as Alaska and
to vibrant trees, green trees, the Arabs could cut the branches and there and then rub them together and make a fire.
Literally, you don't have to have any drying process, take the tree take the tree branches and you can make fire immediately with it. And that in and of itself is something which listen to this bewilders the mind isn't it is bewilders the mind that you can take these opposite things and make them together like how the question is how? Even though the question is how is it reality?
Can you do it? Can you see it? Yes is a reality. So what is the message here? The message is as follows.
Something that can be willed to you should not be thought of as impossible.
Now, when you think about resurrection, you think to yourself, how many billion human beings are going to be resurrected? trillions.
After how many millions of years 1000s of years. He said really possible? I can't even imagine.
How will it happen? Even though I bewilders your mind? Do not say? Because I can't imagine it. It is not possible. Just like you can't really imagine two opposites being brought together like this to make fire but it does happen. It does happen you know it happens in the same way. Don't be like this about resurrection. I'll give you another example.
Imagine you went to a time machine back 1000 years to the deserts of Arabia.
And you can explain to the person that you know what I was just sitting in a gathering, learning about the proton and people on the other side of the world could also watch it and hear it whilst it was actually happening via Facebook Live.
Yeah, now tell me Would that person believe you?
You say well, we're as if as in we are talking right now and someone on the other side of the world can hear and see us talking right now. Is that what you're saying?
Come on, man. Don't drink for a mug, bro. Yeah, that's what you would say. This is bewilders the mind. But is it real? Yes, it is real. Yeah, this is the idea. Don't get confused human beings. Something can be willed to your mind but don't say it doesn't exist. A lot can do it. Allah shows you signs in the green tree
verse number 81
Second last verses for DRC.
Take note a my brothers and sisters, soldiers he began by speaking about resurrection. And it is ending by speaking by resurrection. Allah said in the beginning of soldiers he was the motto in national national motor, why not tumor but the moon.
Allah said we we bring the dead back to life and we are writing down what they put forward and what they leave behind in the same way so DRC is ending my speaking about resurrection. beautiful the way sort of y'all seen it reviews itself and concluded so so Allah says verse number 81 hour they said that the Hala personality will be the Rena and Luca
Bella who will call upon him is he created the heavens and earth are able to create the likes of these people. Of course he is he is the all knowing he is the all knowing creator. What number rational argument is this number?
Three, yes, very good.
Third rational argument is as follows.
Allah says, isn't the one who did this capable of this and this is how the argument goes, ie
if God is capable of this, then he for sure he is capable of this. This is how the argument works. Now I don't know what the name of this is in logic
is type of argument as a as this is a terminology for it.
In Arabic They say Barbie Lola mean Barbie Ola, as if to say if this is possible, then for sure this is possible. Does anyone know in logic what they what they turn this type of argument? Anyway, search inshallah you'll find it this is that type of argument. So what is it that law says he can do? Which makes it much more easier to do the following is he created the skies and the earth?
Because Allah created the skies the earth, it means that he's
totally capable of bringing the dead back to life. Now think about this. Allah says another place in the Quran? Isn't the creation of the skies and the earth x greater than the creation of human beings? Is it if you think about it, think about the size of the planets in the solar system. Think about the size of planets in the universe. Think about the number of planets in the universe. Some say that there are 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe 200 billion galaxies and around two.
Is it 2%? Or is it not? 10%? They said 10% of each 10% of all stars have planets. So you got planets, you got your stars, you got your solar systems, then you go you galaxies follow me? Yeah. So they do an equation. If there are 200 billion galaxies in the universe, how many planets must they be?
They estimate a total of two times 10 to the power of 28 planets. That's the number two with 28 zeros coming after it. That's how many planners they think there is in existence right now. So Panama, Allah says the one who made all of that, is he capable of doing something like this? It makes so much sense when you look at it like that, isn't it? When you think about the gigantic nature of these entities, they complex existence, their sheer number, all of these things? It makes us feel very insignificant in the light of the universe, isn't it? This is the argument. He is be a part of the bad they said of Zaida meeting, he is totally capable
to create the likes of them better. So what is the answer to this question? Which is a rhetorical question, isn't he capable if he did this? The answer is Bella for sure. Oh, Allah, wa who was Halekulani. And once again, his knowledge is brought to you who will holla the word harlot means creator. The word holla is hyperbole. It is the more intense spelling as if to say He is the creator of so many things. Yeah, he's not just a creator. He's a creator of so many things. The volume of his creation is just magnificent. And he is with all of those. The volume of things he has created. Ali
is two opposites being brought together. You know, when you have many things in your possession. You know, like some kids, they have so many toys, then I find that wow, you had that toy just one week ago because I got your 10 other toys after that. You forgot about the first one. I was saying I made so many things.
And I'm making so many things with each thing. I know it exists. I know how it exists, I know where it exists. Well who
bhairahawa and Halekulani. Second last verse in Nana Amro, Isla arada, Shea, and Angola confiable. This is beautiful. After the three rational arguments, a summary is brought, the summary is when he will something to be he says Be and it is this is the summary. Any as if Allah is saying, Do you really need me to take you through these arguments? Do you really need things to be explained to you in this way? When the at the end of the day what is what is this one about? It is about the one who when he wants something to happen, all he has to say is the word what can fail, and it is a patata. He would say in Arabic, there is no word to express ease, greater than the word.
You can't imagine a word when you want to express ease, which does it better than the word con as if Allah is saying, you know how easy it is for me to make things happen. It is like me having to say come that's all it is effortless. It is effortless for a lot to do whatever he wants in Nana amaroo. The word enamal brings a meaning of only, it is only the following. That's what it is, it is only that will allow one something to happen. And when he said something, he used the word shape, which is natural common, which gives the meaning of diversity, whatever he wants, big or small, whatever it is, all he has to do is say cone and when he does your quote it is and that also has the meaning
of look Allah when he creates when he wants something to happen. He doesn't need helpers. He doesn't need a factory. He doesn't need raw materials. He doesn't need to take time to make something if he wants to. He can but he doesn't need to. All he has to do is say configure Conan is unlike people, when people need to make something big happen. They need to put a lot of effort, a lot of time and a lot of resources. The exact opposite is the case of Allah, whether he wants something big or small. He doesn't need to take any time. No effort and no resources belong. In nama Maru either Radha shagun, me Apolo coldfire goon, and so the last verse, the last verse, Allah Subhana, Allah de ba D,
but a coup to coup de la de la vaca. Allah said, so Glory be to Him in whose hand lies control over all things. It is to him that you will all be brought back. Look at the way this finishes the word the letter far in festival Hannah in Nashville said this is the foul for see her, which means a far of elaboration He said, The far is a lie saying, now the culmination of everything you've just heard the arguments, illustrating the power of God, illustrating the foolishness of thinking he can't do something
should bring you to a point where you say you know what's
that is what the last part of sort of jazz you should do to the heart of a person who's really good, make them feel in all of Allah, make them feel like things to pounce upon means a lot, you are free of any flaws, you are flawless, you are perfect for Super Han Allah de ba de mallacoota coalition. So Han, you are flawless, the one
the one who has the whole kingdom in his hand. But the way Allah said the whole kingdom in his hand, he made it more emphatic in three ways.
First, Allah said B and D, the bar, the bar here is for masaba which is to say something is in your company in prisons, it is right there. What is right there in the hand of Allah melaku the kingdom of the whole universe, everything that exists a lie saying it is via the it is right in his hand, by saying it is in his hand, it adds more power, because we don't want someone say, you know, I have something here right in my hand is right there. It expresses control doesn't do. Right in my hand. It doesn't allow notice in law who will Kusanagi to Allah said bi d. He is writing his hand, which expresses more power. And the third way is by using the word melaku. This is a unique strange word
it is not common. The common word is Mark Mark means the minion mallacoota is the hyperbole, it is more intense spelling. And it means the universe in its totality, every part of the universe, every thing that exists
All of it in its entirety is right there in the hands of a loss of power. This is the meeting where he lay down, and the last words are and it is to him that you will all be going back to who said, what you need you to the gentleman before
Him who said to people, you are going to go back to a law? Yes, it
sounds very good the believing man. He came to his people and he said what Mariela Abdullah de facto Ronnie y la he to German. He said to his people, listen, who should I worship other than the one who created me and the one who you're all going back to what did they do to him?
They killed him. They silenced him. They tried to silence the meaning and the message that we're gonna go back to a lot, but a lot took those words and place them at the end of Satya seem to make that message. Eternal and permanent. People try to silence others who call them to the hereafter. Allah said you tried to silence them but I am making that message in termina. I'm making that message permanent you cannot silence the Quran. The Quran will remain with this message until yoga pm what he told Jeroen and this is how solid he has seen ends and it is also how
we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our meager efforts in trying to explain his miraculous words. And to make it heavy on our scales of Yokoyama. We also ask Allah to allow us to live by the teachings of soldiers that we have learned and also to help us to share with those around us as well. We are most proud of Allah figures for our shortcomings and accept the work that we are done make it sincere for the sake alone. And also last Ramadan Amina Mohammed while he was
dissolved will have been laughing. I think now inshallah we'll be serving food for everyone. Please stay with us and enjoy some food with us. Any questions anybody wants to ask?
anyone have any questions?
Yes, yes, of course.
