Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salatu

00:00:19--> 00:01:03

salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brothers and sisters and welcome. This is the second lesson of our study of certain Hadid. And last week we spoke about some introductory courses spoke about the general message of the surah, the 57 chapters of the Hadith. We also spoke about how this order can be broken down into five sections. There after we spoke about the name of the surah, the chapter of iron and how it relates to the overall message of the chapter we said that the name iron is found inside the surah Wenzel and Heidi the fee that's associated with Allah says and we sat down iron and in it is the potential to inflict much harm and how that corresponds to the overall message of the

00:01:03--> 00:01:33

surah as some scholars have suggested, now, today inshallah we hope to cover the first three verses of this surah we Allah begins by saying sub Ballina, he mathisen out he will adware who will Aziz will hacking, a very brief translation, everything in the skies and the earth glorifies Allah, and he is the Almighty, the old wise. The surah. Like I said last time is one of the most of the house and it begins with a note have to be

00:01:35--> 00:02:24

What does the word mean? We said that it means that when you declare the Allies flawless, Allah has no shortcomings. Allah has no deficiencies. And in the context of human beings, and in particular disbelievers and idol worshippers, it has another meaning which is when a person says Subhana Allah, He is declaring that Allah is far removed from the silly things that people say and they do, like claiming that some of them wish recorded in Makkah, that the angels are the daughters of Allah. Well, the year the villa or the Christian say that a son is salam, Jesus Christ is the son of Allah. Or what people say today, atheists and people who are against religion, they say, if there was

00:02:24--> 00:03:08

really a god, why is it someone suffering in the world if there was really a god, how come? People religious people go to war all the time, and so on and so forth. They make obnoxious remarks about Allah. So when you say Subhana, Allah, when you read Subhana, Allah that everything in the skies on earth is making the speech of Allah, they are declaring that Allah has nothing to do with the silly things that people say, and they do. Allah is far removed from that Allah transcends that. Now reflecting over this verse, the scholars of Islam I cannot agree, they said, what this actually means is that both the living and the nonliving make this be of a loss of Canada. What does that

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

mean?

00:03:10--> 00:03:56

angels, from the gym time from mankind, as well as everything in the sky, from the sun, the moon, the stars, galaxies, and beyond, and everything on this earth from trees, from grass, okay, from rocks, mountains, they are saying that the meaning of this verse is that every single thing that exists living and nonliving all make the spirit of a loss of Paradise as very powerful, meaning it's a very powerful idea. And just to break it down for you imagine that you went trekking, it climbed up a mountain, like we were tricking have been nervous. We never mentioned it. Fortunately, the second time around, but when you get halfway, Has anyone been up whenever you've been minimus?

00:03:56--> 00:04:12

Right? So halfway up, there's a lake in the side of the mountain, right? There's a lake, a huge lake. And I remember thinking to myself, what is the lake doing up here in the middle of the mountain, that mountain is that is that large.

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

And that's the halfway point. There was a cloud of mist hovering over this lake and is beautiful. You stand there, just a few yards further up. There's a waterfall. And you turn around and you see the beautiful landscape and you see the clouds, the casting shade over parts of the grassland. And you see trees in the hundreds as far as your eyes can see. And then you hear you know, you see sheep trotting about and all of this. Imagine for a moment that when you're up there in the mountains, seeing all these things that you are given the speed headphones, these headphones, he put them on, and all of a sudden, you can hear that this we have all of those creatures. Tell me how would you

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

feel

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

For the first time you heard it,

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

how would you feel?

00:05:07--> 00:05:21

You heard creation say, a law you are perfect. You are flawless. I mean, how would that affect your heart? How would that affect the way you think about Allah? It would make you

00:05:22--> 00:05:29

grow in your estimation of Allah's greatness, true or not, isn't it? Now the interesting thing is that

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

what is greater what is a bigger creation?

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

A mountain or a human being?

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

What's greater, what's bigger? The mountain galaxy or a man?

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

galaxy, right? Even in the Quran, Allah says,

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

Hello person out you'll have the actual mean helping us by the creation of the sky and the earth is greater than people.

00:06:00--> 00:06:05

While I can act on us, like most people, they don't know that they don't appreciate that.

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

Now, if what is greater than you sings the praises of Allah. How should that make you feel?

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

Imagine someone who you respect. Okay, let's say

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

let's say a colleague of yours, okay? is a scientist

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

is a scientist, okay. It's very useful. You have a lot of respect to him. He says, you know, there's this guy.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

He is an expert in

00:06:39--> 00:06:50

astrophysics. And he's got so much knowledge and he's is praising him. He says he's so much older, he's so well read his, his understanding is so deep, these papers are so amazing.

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

Your estimation of that guy just went through the roof, because your friend said so. Someone you respect right.

00:07:01--> 00:07:25

Now here, the same thing applies. When you hear that that which is greater than you is glorifying a line saying Allah is great, and Allah is perfect and flawless. How should that make you feel? It should make you feel like to power man seriously, I should listen to what everything else is doing. And that should affect my appreciation of the loss of greatness.

00:07:27--> 00:07:50

In fact, there is a sense of competition. When you hear that everything is making this we have a lot it should make you feel like you should compete in that. Because human beings though they may not be as great as the galaxy. They are more valued than a galaxy, isn't it? Well aka the curriculum nanny Adam Allah said we we honored the children of other

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

human beings are more valuable than mountains to Allah true or not. So if mountains are outdoing you in singing last praises How should that make you feel? We should make you feel that Oh man, I should be increasing in my office we have a lot. Everything our day is making this week on How can I not say souhan a lot more. How can I not sell hungry learn more? Yes, this verse the implication of it is people glorify Lhamo, understand how great he is everything is making the spear with linguistically speaking the word sub the House said it last time is the past tense. They actually said what that shows is that this is this unknown is

00:08:36--> 00:09:24

it is an established fact that everything glorifies Allah. Now the past tense has another nuance of Eastern bra which is continuity. As far back in history as you go, you would find that the creation disguised on Earth was always glorifying Allah subhanaw taala always Yeah. Now when you come to sort of Jumeirah, you said behold Allah which is a present tense, it has another dimension which is everything is making disappear for law now present tense, but also in the foreseeable future they will continue to so past tense everything back in as far back in history as you go and present tense now and into the future. As far into the future as you can go. Everything is making me Oh human.

00:09:25--> 00:09:35

What should that make you do? It should make you want to remember a lot more alarma Jana and then carry on Allah make us from those that remember you often llama I mean

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

Subhana haemaphysalis. What you will not somebody may ask you said that even long nonliving entities make to us we have a lot how, how does the sun and the moon and the mountains make the speaker a lot? I can't hear them. They don't have a mouth. They How do they make this feel alone? Good question, right. How do we answer this

00:10:01--> 00:10:13

Some scholars, they said, the way a nonliving thing makes us feel like a tree, or a mountain is by its very existence. By its existence, it

00:10:14--> 00:10:29

indicates the existence of a creator. That sounds like in the spirit. However, other scholars they criticizes, they say this is incorrect, because Allah says, is to or to distort. What do you mean Shay, in England who said we should be happy when a lot of Kahuna,

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

Allah saw that there is a single thing, except that it is making despicable law.

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

However you don't understand is the speed.

00:10:42--> 00:10:56

You don't understand it. So if you try to hypothesize about how, for example, some scholars have said an atom or electron makes the speed of law, you are going against the other verse, which is saying you don't understand it.

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

You can't understand it. You must just accept it and appreciate this. Yes, this is how you answer this question. On the last

00:11:08--> 00:11:20

two days of the law wrote, the word and as the name of the disease has three meanings as more than three meanings. The first meaning is the Lazarus means Allah is

00:11:22--> 00:11:31

the most powerful. The meaning of power for this is number one, number two is the meaning of authority.

00:11:33--> 00:11:47

Authority. So party and under third is the meaning of respect. So when you say a law analysis, it means the law has the ultimate authority is the most powerful and has the most respect.

00:11:48--> 00:12:00

The second name and a hacky, usually translators, the most wise, and I lose, he said that it means that whatever Anwar does, it is driven by wisdom and

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

wisdom and benefits,

00:12:06--> 00:12:19

wisdom and benefits, you know, sometimes a person decides on a course of action, and he doesn't think it through enough. He doesn't weigh out the pros and the cons as he should. And he ends up making a bad decision.

00:12:20--> 00:12:25

When, when you say allies, shocking, that means whatever a lot does.

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

Not only is it wise, but the benefit always outweighs the harm.

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

And disease and hacking, if you look at these two names together,

00:12:40--> 00:12:51

you find something quite amazing. Because if we think of it from a human perspective, and as is one of the meanings is what has the most power, power. What happens to human being when it becomes very powerful.

00:12:55--> 00:13:10

It becomes corrupted becomes arrogant, it becomes tyrannical. Yes, usually human beings that get great power, they become very tyrants. And to be honest, you don't have to be a king to notice you could get a promotion at work. And all of a sudden,

00:13:11--> 00:13:16

you know, you look down on everyone else, your own colleague who you work with yesterday,

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

you know, you don't time for video.

00:13:22--> 00:13:33

You want to be pulled by your title. Why haven't you been you just like easygoing guy yesterday. And anyway, a promotion and now you suck a person.

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

You don't want to eat, you don't have lunch.

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

With those guys.

00:13:40--> 00:13:47

Just a tiny bit of authority can corrupt people, just like money is just like money.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

A lot of guys he's unhappy.

00:13:51--> 00:13:58

That though he has the utmost power and authority, that doesn't detract from his wisdom.

00:13:59--> 00:14:07

It doesn't make him or diminish his wisdom and want to benefit human beings.

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

Spiritual and azeez. What is the opposite of a wise person?

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

ignorant,

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

foolish, so had in mind is

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

the opposite of a wise person is a foolish person.

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

A foolish person?

00:14:26--> 00:14:36

The thing is, see, one of the ways to understand the meanings of words to speak about opposites. Why is a foolish person of whom is it because he doesn't know.

00:14:37--> 00:14:51

Why is it because he may know but he doesn't use the knowledge in the right way. That's the reason and that's how you understand wisdom is the judgment wisdom and knowledge. Somebody may know a lot of stuff when they speak. They don't say the right thing.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

In fact, they say the wrong thing. As many examples come to my mind, I'm trying to think of one this is suitable to you mentioned this

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

But you don't think someone has lots of knowledge? And they say some dark things, man. I think so What is he? What did your knowledge go? Yeah.

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

We did a youth retreat, and

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

we got teenagers and young kids very difficult to

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

stay overnight. So watch out, they came, they stood overnight. Pretty funny together. We're gonna go play football together. Right.

00:15:28--> 00:15:34

Everyone's very excited about that. And one of the uncles respect, you said, Would you like to remind them?

00:15:37--> 00:15:37

Of course.

00:15:38--> 00:15:39

So he sat down.

00:15:41--> 00:15:49

Did you know he spoke about, he spoke about how foolish people are for liking football.

00:15:50--> 00:15:56

And how dumb they are for supporting football teams and wasting the time playing football. He didn't know.

00:15:59--> 00:16:09

Honestly, for 15 minutes, he went on and labeled the point that there is no benefit of football. And then you wear the shorts. And that's how,

00:16:10--> 00:16:34

you know, look how the movie shows the harm. And wasting time, as you should be in the nasty, the honest and you could you almost felt like I'm about to cringe right now. Because this is so I feel embarrassed. Because even if you're right, this is the thing, even if you're right from one angle. Is it the right thing to say to these kids?

00:16:35--> 00:16:42

Like seriously? Are they gonna listen to a single thing you said? Or are they bored? Are you What is this person that requires?

00:16:44--> 00:16:53

Josephson? Yeah, and Hakeem hikmah is about the execution of knowledge, the execution of lunch?

00:16:54--> 00:17:11

That's the difference between a wise man and a knowledgeable man. Yes, a wise person will know what to say, how to say it, and when to say, and people, they appreciate that. And I think there is a process of that wisdom is a lost property of a believer.

00:17:13--> 00:17:22

Is that wisdom, right? This person, wisdom is a lost property of a belief. Think about?

00:17:25--> 00:17:31

What does that mean? It means that you don't have to be a Muslim, or Muslim to be a wise man is possible.

00:17:33--> 00:17:43

person doesn't need to be a believer to have the shape of is possible that you can meet the wise person. Yeah, some people call them psychiatrists. But you know,

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

that wisdom is something is different than knowledge.

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

And a lot is, has the ultimate authority, respect and power and also use the wise is both. Now, look at the connection between the end of the verse and the beginning of the verse.

00:18:05--> 00:18:10

What is the connection? In the beginning, you're told that everything out there, glorifies the law?

00:18:12--> 00:18:23

says that he's perfect and flawless? And the ending of the verse select students, he is the most powerful? And the most why's? Why did they end?

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

While Google are rushing over food?

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

Or two other names? Why are these two names in particular?

00:18:35--> 00:18:35

Think about?

00:18:37--> 00:18:40

Are they chosen without reason?

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

Or are they chosen for a specific reason?

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

for a

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

specific reason.

00:18:50--> 00:18:54

So what do you think? What's the connection between the beginning and the end of the verse?

00:18:58--> 00:18:58

See?

00:19:03--> 00:19:03

What do you think?

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

Very good, very good. Yes, there is an element of justification.

00:19:18--> 00:19:25

You know, why do why does everything praise Allah and glorify Him? Is it misplaced?

00:19:27--> 00:19:57

Is it misplaced praise? Or is it justified? What do you think about lobbying the most powerful authority, the most powerful, most powerful entity with the greatest respect and the most authority? It then follows that he should be praised, right? I mean, imagine for a moment that you woke up tomorrow and an entire country was given to you for your control

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

and you have power over it.

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

Maybe you're

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

not sure who your friends

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

are he's, he's in charge in America.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

What would happen to this sense of perspective?

00:20:14--> 00:20:14

Sure.

00:20:16--> 00:20:46

How powerful is you know? Yeah, it would be good to praise you, isn't it? There is a justification and shocking wisdom. When you see a person acting in a wise way, your heart moves as your appreciation estimation of it increases, you want to praise him. So there is a connection. The ending of the verse is explained to us why a lot deserves to be praised, and to be glorified or equation.

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

Okay, next was the homework Kusanagi will not usually when you beats while accomplishing.

00:20:58--> 00:21:12

To him, control of the heavens and earth belong to Him, He gives life and death he has power over all things. Some of the scholars say that this is the continuation of the first verse, because you've just heard that a lot is as he's

00:21:13--> 00:21:20

the most powerful. Now you're going to have further details that explain how he is so powerful.

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

How is the most authoritative?

00:21:26--> 00:21:42

One of the reason is because he controls whatever is in the sky, and the earth, skies of the earth. And because he's the one who gives life and the one who takes life, and because he's over all things competence, the word work

00:21:44--> 00:21:50

is explained in a number of ways I'll share with you two, first meaning of love, that he has,

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

over the skies of Earth means he has control.

00:21:54--> 00:22:03

He has control, he controls whatever takes place in the universe, whichever corner of the universe Allah has complete control over

00:22:05--> 00:22:26

the second meaning it because he mentioned is that he is the marriage, the owner of the master, the owner and the master of the skies and the earth and there is a linguistic tool being used here to make the meaning more powerful, and that is the sequence of the world. Literally speaking the way you will translate this verse is

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

control.

00:22:31--> 00:22:42

Nasri translation v To Him belongs to control of the skies, instead of the control of the skies and earth belongs to him. Now, which one

00:22:43--> 00:22:53

is more powerful to him will obviously control this of the scars of the earth, or the control of the skies and the earth belongs to him. First one.

00:22:56--> 00:22:56

First one is.

00:22:58--> 00:23:02

And this is because the metallic blue cover has been bought early.

00:23:04--> 00:23:11

And it produces a sense of exclusivity. As if to say this is only true, alone.

00:23:13--> 00:23:21

Nobody else has control about this. Nobody else has ownership like this. And that's something you have to appreciate that when you use an example again, about

00:23:25--> 00:23:32

checking the shares you imagine tomorrow you woke up and you've given the controller ownership. The USA

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

is all your answer.

00:23:38--> 00:23:46

Yeah. Now, what do we say everyone who knows you when they realize that appreciation, the estimation of you will increase when people respect you.

00:23:48--> 00:24:13

People may pay you more as well? Isn't it a combination control USA and all the missiles and houses? As soon as we will be quaking in their boots? thinking Oh, he doesn't like me. What can you do to him? Yeah, see, that is the type of feelings you should have when you read this this a lot. He has complete control of everything. Complete ownership

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

also implies a relationship. If Allah is the owner, what does that make you?

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

If he's the owner, what does that make you?

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

But I'm the owner of this business I can't become

00:24:30--> 00:24:30

my property.

00:24:32--> 00:24:35

My property. The thing is, do we behave like when I lost property?

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

Think about do

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

we read the Hong Kong cassava do we behave like a lot of you are my own?

00:24:44--> 00:24:49

Yeah, if you want to think of a master like a slave, his allies the martyrdom and we know the slave do we will

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

allow you to implication is that if Allah has complete control it Why is it that in terms of difficulty we do not turn to him to help us

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

If he truly believed,

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

even if it can be the example of

00:25:05--> 00:25:15

being in charge in USA, if there was a mother in the USA, who was in a very bad financial situation.

00:25:17--> 00:25:23

And there was no one who could help her, who would she call upon? If she could reach out to

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

the guy around the top right? Reach out to you. Maybe send an email? That is serious, difficult situation? Can you help me out?

00:25:34--> 00:25:56

Because you're the guy in control, isn't it? So So how to love if we really believe a lies in control of our lives, that when we come across difficulties in life, we should believe that Allah is the one who will make the way out. The one is the one who bring relief is the one who will take care of his. So knowing this should increase the amount of

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

increases in our reliance trust. And

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

it makes sense if he's in control that he is the one who will help me.

00:26:05--> 00:26:17

And the control of a law is irresistible. Meaning that if you wish something and somebody else didn't want something who would win? Who's will prevail? The winner?

00:26:19--> 00:26:33

No one else? Yes. Usually what you means another fact about a law that makes us appreciate his greatness is that he gives life and he takes imagine

00:26:34--> 00:26:43

you gave you brought one person back to life. Imagine you brought on Jimmy, the people who witnessed what they think of

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

you I think you have the job.

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

They will start to veteran you. Maybe they call your good, isn't it? And this for you bring someone back to life who they know is dead.

00:26:59--> 00:27:03

Seriously, who do you think they would think man, this guy is something?

00:27:05--> 00:27:15

Maybe they will start to question. But we know this about a lot. Usually when you read not to one man, to all creatures,

00:27:16--> 00:27:23

every single thing that exists is being brought into existence by of law and law alone.

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

And he is the one who'll

00:27:27--> 00:27:36

take away our lives as well. You know, think about if there was a person in this world who could switch off your heart

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

at his will.

00:27:42--> 00:27:46

Would you ever want to make him unhappy?

00:27:47--> 00:27:48

Would you ever want to displease him?

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

Would you ever want to say anything bad about him?

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

luck is the one who keeps us living and he will take

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

us powerful

00:28:00--> 00:28:10

we should make us realize a lot of oneasy so great, but we need we need to make a lot least we need to make these

00:28:11--> 00:28:16

while he is a whole thing's competent. So I'm just gonna say this is like a summary of the

00:28:18--> 00:28:27

summary of diversity and all these things about the law. over every single thing a law has complete control and the word petite is the more intense feeling. This is

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

the simple website it is LS RG

00:28:40--> 00:28:54

Yes, power control are the is the more transparent you say yes, complete control. No, some complete control, complete competency over every single thing.

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

over every single thing.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

The third verse, this is the master slave

00:29:05--> 00:29:35

who will overwhelm him with balancing but more equally Shane. This is the verse that I think is he said he believes that the professor walk when his son was referring to it when he said that there was a verse in the muscle we had the seven chapters, which is more virtuous than 1000 verses. He said it is this verse, what does it mean simple translation allow what he is the first the last one interpretation, the highest,

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

the closest

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

and he is regarding everything

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

is regarding everything.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

Now, this verse is speaking about

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

people, profits, nature, history,

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

local law.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

Speaking about law

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

This is one of the reasons why this verse is more special.

00:30:05--> 00:30:13

Because the verses that speak exclusively about the law, they are more virtuous proof is what is the greatest listen

00:30:17--> 00:30:29

alone? or what have you playing? What does ikusi speak about? prophets, history, nature, commandments, only about a lot.

00:30:30--> 00:30:42

And what that should mean for us, as students of the Quran, is that the person we should look most forward to, to read and be the most interested in another person to speak about scientific miracles.

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

None of us are speaking about seeming scientific miracles, they should be the verses that speak about a lot.

00:30:50--> 00:31:14

Because they're the greatest verses in the sight of Allah, so they should become the greatest verses in our hearts as well. This is one of those verses, what does it mean? Some of the scholars they say the prophets Allah said, he explained the meaning of this verse in a door, the door is a Muslim. He asked Allah that I asked you and they begin to praise it a lot. And he said, until

00:31:15--> 00:31:26

30 days of publication, you are the first and no one felissa publication. So there is no one before you, there is nothing before

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

what until

00:31:30--> 00:31:34

and you are the last Felisa granted, there is nothing after you

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

wonder why

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

Felisa fo Kakashi So, there is nothing above you

00:31:43--> 00:31:52

what until about him, finish the lunar mission and you are about him. So, there is nothing that is closer than you.

00:31:54--> 00:32:00

So, how do we explain this? Explain over to me that Allah is the first What does that mean?

00:32:03--> 00:32:08

In Simple English, it means a lot is eternal, and nothing close is eternal.

00:32:09--> 00:32:12

If you go back, as far back as you go,

00:32:13--> 00:32:20

nothing is eternal, like a lot. A lot is eternal, and nothing else is eternal. As far back as you go.

00:32:24--> 00:32:31

If we go into the future is anything in terms of like the lies eternal in the future? No, only alive

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

until no one will have

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

eternity in both spectrums.

00:32:40--> 00:32:43

of volume. As a number of weeks I'm going to share with you just to

00:32:44--> 00:32:53

Avaya Martinez has a number of meetings I'm gonna share with you today. So the first thing you'll find is a lot is higher than anything else.

00:32:56--> 00:33:13

Number one higher in terms of rank, and no one is more ranks higher Hi, that alone. The second meeting is nothing is above us. More than a lot. Yeah, nothing is above a lot. A lot is the highest.

00:33:16--> 00:33:27

The other meaning is that Allah is the most obvious entity in existence, the most obvious entity in existence. Explain that a bit

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

about him. To me.

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

Firstly, a lot is closer

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

is closer to things than anything else.

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

And there's a verse in Sudoku partners So apart from our cities, what national

00:33:45--> 00:34:05

we are closer to them, then they jump. They jump either way. Yeah, I must say we are closer to them believe in that. That's the meaning of bouting. Firstly, the second meaning is that Allah is the most hidden entity in existence.

00:34:06--> 00:34:11

Okay. Now how do we explain the most obvious of the most hidden meanings?

00:34:12--> 00:34:21

What they mean by the most obvious in existence is that the proof of Allah's existence is more obvious than anything else.

00:34:22--> 00:34:31

The fact that everything in existence points to his existence, the presence of a maker, the creator, history,

00:34:32--> 00:34:33

points towards the existence of

00:34:35--> 00:34:45

the revelation on all of the review of books in general. So not a symbol. Think about it. Think about it.

00:34:46--> 00:34:50

The Quran, the Bible, the Old Testament, New Testament,

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

and other religious books, they are the most popular books in history, right, isn't it? So you have these books now the most popular books that are

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

existed in history, all saying that Allah exists. It is a free version, isn't it? And that's just one truth. Besides the proof of nature, the proof in history, the very fact that things exist is approvable. So what they mean by that is nothing that is more obvious in existence in a lot is that there's no thing that has no proof for existence that

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

makes sense.

00:35:26--> 00:35:50

Now, mounting the most hidden is the irony. How does that work is the most hidden and the most obvious. He said, He's the most hidden in that though he is the most obvious in existence. No one can see a law, nor can any imagination encompasses existence. Yeah, but you can't see the light this book. Nor can you imagine what the law looks like.

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

So in that way, is it?

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

Yeah, if you add all of these things together, you see that

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

in isolation, each name the first the last, the highest or the most obvious, the closest. And the thing which is most hidden, is amazing independently, but when you put them all together, they become even more amazing.

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

Yeah. And as a marshal, he said, if you look at the verse, there is a wow, between each name, who will wah

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

wah,

00:36:28--> 00:36:40

wah and about him. And he's the first and the last, and the highest and the closest that he said that if you look at another place in the whole arm, for example,

00:36:43--> 00:36:46

the last one says, and medical produces salon.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

Communicate names vote is they allow in between there's no

00:36:54--> 00:37:05

one over there is eight. There is no well over here this for this alone. And why? He suggests because it sort of hashing all the names are complimentary.

00:37:06--> 00:37:10

A lot is a medical tutus. He is the King and the pure,

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

and movement the trustworthy algo Haman. Some said the safeguard,

00:37:17--> 00:37:54

Allah Aziz al Jabbar, the mighty the Capella, they all very similar, different nuances. But if you look at certain hobbies, they contrast offering an open the first and the last. But how is that even possible that you could be the first human being to move the business, you're not gonna be the last one is impossible, becoming the first and the last, the highest of the highest person in the world. But can you also be the closest as much as you can to be the first and the last and the highest and the closest, all together at the same time? A lot of

00:37:55--> 00:38:06

a lot of seriously blows your mind if you think about it. Yes. And he said that and in between it is his function is to show the contrast between the nerves.

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

And the last part was what equally shonali

00:38:11--> 00:38:22

and he is regarding all things adding the word Aileen means the most knowledgeable. But the simple way of spelling this is, you know, what this

00:38:23--> 00:38:43

means is a knowledgeable person. And he is co author of the book intensely. You said, Addie doesn't just be knowledgeable, it means supremely knowledgeable. There's another intensified spelling, which is I learn I love which also means incredibly knowledgeable is

00:38:45--> 00:39:10

what would be coalition adding, therefore the way you translate to use it a lot with regards to every single thing has supreme knowledge. The some of the scholars, they say that it's almost like a summary of all these things. Because I was the first it was everything that happens afterwards. And because he's the boss, nothing will escape. And because the highest nothing can escape it. And because he's closest to everything, nothing can escape.

00:39:12--> 00:39:15

It therefore the conclusion the highest score

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

is a statement of undefined.

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

He is a ninth century scholar, he wrote a book interesting, I don't

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

know.

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

His book, which looks at the connections connection between this and even inside of us the connection between me and him. He has a statement that will ever reflect over the beginning of the verse, He will appreciate the ending of the verse, and he will ever reflect over the ending of the verse he will get the beginning of this very interesting is is basically speaking about technique, that if you think deeply about the beginning of the verse, you will be able to appreciate it and if you think about ending it

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Get the begin that this is a very good example. We'll be publishing.

00:40:05--> 00:40:09

It is a summary of the verse. Yes, it is a sub universe, I want you to appreciate something.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

What does it mean to us when we hit the law, this is most normal.

00:40:19--> 00:40:32

Now, give you a scenario, okay? Imagine, actually, I gave you that example, your friend, your colleague, the scientist, he says this, this guy is an astrophysics. He's an expert.

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

He saw one with his papers,

00:40:37--> 00:40:44

loaded by everyone in the field as being the most sophisticated papers in the subject.

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

Now, imagine you are in the presence of this professor,

00:40:50--> 00:41:05

Professor in astrophysics. Tell me what you did speak about astrophysics in his presence. Would you say? You just I know, that's what you think we do? I actually, there's no such thing as black holes.

00:41:06--> 00:41:29

I don't think that would you start to just talk about your opinions about things. In the presence of this progressive? Would you? Would any sane person, you know, think about this now? A lot of it. When it comes to the teachings of Islam? How many people like to edit their opinions? I know Allah says this about me, you know, I've kind of things like this.

00:41:30--> 00:41:36

You know, yeah, it's true. cheriya says that you should punish people. I kind of think that that's backwards.

00:41:38--> 00:41:43

And I don't really think that's the right thing to do. I think in the context of religion, it should be like this.

00:41:45--> 00:41:45

Do you see what I'm saying?

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

How foolish.

00:41:49--> 00:42:31

You are speaking to the one who is I mean, he has expert knowledge of your own nature, and the world that you live in. In fact, he created it. How could you even think about suggesting something different to what he says? Is it make sense? It doesn't make sense that if you couple this with the shocking, the most wise, you think to yourself, if Allah is the most wise in what he says what he does in the religion, which he gives us, it must mean that every teaching of Islam has wisdom in it, perhaps wisdom, the icon seat now imagine you're back in the professor's presence. Okay. So now he's talking, he's giving a lecture

00:42:33--> 00:42:34

maybe about black holes?

00:42:37--> 00:42:39

Even I'm not sure right now, if somebody out there knows what

00:42:42--> 00:42:46

black hoses, he says that he says,

00:42:47--> 00:43:20

according to latest scientific findings and experiments, black holes don't actually exist. And you always want to exist at all. What would you think now? How would you feel? Would you not reassess what you what you held to be true? and change it in line with his opinion? You, wouldn't you? You would say, man, and he says, There's no such thing as black color investor, that's the way it goes. I must be wrong my whole life. In fact, everyone must be wrong, because he knows more than anyone. Am I right or wrong?

00:43:21--> 00:43:25

Now when Allah say something, and you think really is it?

00:43:28--> 00:44:00

How could that be the case? That you could think you know, better than Allah. In fact, you should tell yourself, you know, I was wrong. And Allah knows better. Allah Ya Allah Maha. Allah says he doesn't know what he created no better. Like seriously human beings. Humble yourselves. Humble yourself, allow what he knows. You couldn't even begin to imagine. The way I work is about you and your future. Your mother doesn't care about you that much.

00:44:01--> 00:44:54

is true. Your mother does not care about you as much as unlucky as money. How can we as Muslims ever doubt the teachings of Islam? How can we ever criticize an element of the beautiful details on how to the problem is in the heart, the heart has become a heart. The heart has become corrupted and tainted by other ideologies of propaganda. The causes they say, yeah. And because of all of that corruption, your estimation of a law has diminished. And because of that, you start to question what the law says. So if you appreciate the greatness of a law, how amazing he is, how supreme he is, all of those questions will become answered, and maybe even

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

make a loss of power with our increases in our estimation of these grids longer.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

I mean millimeters of those that are in the morning and evening and elements of those who have humidity

00:45:08--> 00:45:09

and also loss of Milan.
