00:00:21--> 00:00:32

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah wala, and he was Safi mine. My brothers and sisters in Islam a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

But as for today, inshallah, I'm going to take you back to the beginning, to the beginning of

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

when Allah Subhana, Allah created the first human being.

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

And the reason I want to go back to that point when Allah first created the first human being,

00:00:52--> 00:00:55

I want to share with you and awareness

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

of what the plot and the plan

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

of the enemies of the human beings have the enemies of morals of the enemies of good,

00:01:06--> 00:01:14

what they planned from that time until today, and it will end and will stay going to the, to the Hereafter, or until the world ends

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

the plan

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

of obese himself

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

and his conversation with Allah subhanaw taala. And his arguments which he put forth,

00:01:28--> 00:01:34

the challenges he put forth. And the double challenge which Allah gave him.

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

Adam alayhis salam, his response,

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

why he ended up on earth.

00:01:42--> 00:01:48

And the plan, showing us how the plan is continuing today, before our eyes,

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

we want to learn this because when you are aware of your enemy,

00:01:53--> 00:02:04

when you are aware of your enemy, you are the best person to know how to avoid the enemies plots and plans, the better you know your enemy, the more you understand their plots, you can avoid the harm.

00:02:06--> 00:02:25

And Allah says in the Quran, to the believers, actually he addresses all of mankind in a sheath on a likoma, I do one for the hero who I do well, the shaitan is your enemy. So take him as an enemy, do not take him as anything else. But before I start, what is the shape one,

00:02:27--> 00:03:13

you'll see in some modern interpretations of the Quran, they consider the shape line is not a physical being, they actually consider the shape on as something like the symbol of evil. And that the only shaitan that exists is the shaitan within our character, us as human beings, that if I call you to do something wrong, if I'm your friend, and I influenced you to do wrong things, I influenced you to do bad things, then this saying that I am that shaitan or that shaitan within me, that character of the shaitaan within me is shown showing itself because the word shaitan means one who is

00:03:14--> 00:03:25

deep in disbelief one who is deep in enmity to God, one that is the friend of of bad and the enemy of good shaitan one who is deep in evil.

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

Now, part of that is true.

00:03:30--> 00:03:38

Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he named a certain type of shaitan, the shaitan of the ends, the shaitan of the human being.

00:03:39--> 00:03:49

So the human being does have the meaning of evil inside of them, if they want to use it. Allah says in the Quran, one FC one somewhere

00:03:50--> 00:03:51


00:03:54--> 00:04:08

and the person, the self and the way God has created the self, he gave it the tendency to do good, and he gave it to the tendency to do evil. your desires can lead you in any way you just choose that.

00:04:09--> 00:04:48

So there is a shaitan Enos and the prophet SAW Selim also told us about shaitan ins, the human devil, and that he is the worst. He called a friend as a shaitan is the worst thing. Why? Well, there are things you can say that make the Shakedown the real devil runaway. As for the shaitan of the human being, you can say I was willing to shut down and regime for example from now until 1000 years later, and that person will still say the word I will be lameness Should I seek refuge and guide from you, you will not leave and you can recite what Anna shaitan can go but the human being is the worst worst influenced yamakawa and you can see him and touch him or whatever.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

So therefore, what am I saying? When they said that there's no such thing as a physical shaitan they are those who interpreted why. First of all, they used philosophy

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

We do not we are not followers of philosophy we are followers of what Allah brings down to the messenger.

00:05:07--> 00:05:23

And we take it on its surface meaning unless our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explains it in a different meaning, or the Arabic language shows us if you're an Arab that obviously meaning something else. For example,

00:05:25--> 00:05:45

a companion of the prophet SAW Selim a good companion. When fasting was prescribed, and the Muslims, a verse in the Quran came down saying for kulu, washable, had the tibia and Allah Komal, hiatal, abdominal hightail as for the mineral fetch, ate and drink in the night, until the white thread is clear to your side from the black thread.

00:05:47--> 00:06:06

Now this Ohio was invented, took it literally, and neglected the Arabic metaphor, he said, this means I'll bring a black string, a black thread, and a white thread, because in Arabic heitman string until the white string is shown from the black string, that's what the Quran says. So he brought a black string and a white string.

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

And he placed them on his pillow

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

in front of him at dawn,

00:06:13--> 00:06:19

and he kept looking at them. And when he was able to distinguish the white thread from the black thread,

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

when you can see both threads in the day, it meant that that's it, he's not going to eat or drink anymore, he's going to begin his fasting. So look at the white threading and see it a little bit more at night. As the day comes out, you can then see the black thread.

00:06:33--> 00:07:13

So when it promises, and I heard about this, he said to him in the car a little tougher, a meaning that a phrase that the Arabs use to use that, you know, you're smarter than that you're an intelligent person, you know, you're broad minded. That's what it means. You're broad minded. In other words, you know, you actually will never mind that in this particular circumstance. What it means is that, the brightness of the day, the clear thread that you see in the horizon, if you look right out into the sea, for example, and you were to look with the sun first shows its speck of light. When it comes out, there's a clear white line as if it's running a horizon, and the darkness

00:07:13--> 00:07:50

is clear from the whiteness, that white thread across the horizon that's doing said it means when the sun first shows its first absolute first glimpses of light across the edge of the earth or the horizon of the earth or the shape of the earth. You see, it's a metaphor. So here there is an Arabic metaphor that an Arab should understand that it doesn't mean literally. However, the shaitan is something that is literal. Why? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran about a creatures called the jinns. genes. Harlequin insane I mean sooner.

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

Allah says he created the human beings from a type of clay.

00:07:56--> 00:08:18

Haleakala insane I mean Sol Sol in CalHFA. far he created the human being from a type of clay that creates a Sol Sol sound. So when you hit it when it's dried, it goes like that. So it's like ceramics, Allah created us from a similar clay to ceramics in the earth, believe it or not, this is what we made from originally from Adam Allison.

00:08:19--> 00:08:25

out your my origin in your origin is from clay, originally. Well, hyla

00:08:26--> 00:08:32

marijan Minh, and he created the other life form called the genes

00:08:34--> 00:08:54

from a special part of the fire, a special part of the fire. Have you ever looked at a fire and since sparks sort of just come out like that as if they're not connected to the fire? Those little sparks that emanate from the fire is what Allah created the gins from. He created them from that. So the origin is from fire.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

What are these gens?

00:08:58--> 00:09:18

Allah describes the jinn in the Quran and the promises and describes the jinn as different levels there are Jin Hua shayateen, just like there are human beings that can become Sheltie. It can become shaped bonds. And, as we said, the literal meaning of shaitan one who deepens themselves in Kufa in disbelief in evil. So there are jinzhu become shaitan and our humans will become shapen.

00:09:20--> 00:09:31

But there is a real form of jinzhu wash icons. And we normally refer to shaytaan as the devil who was not a human being, but it actually means two things the devil of the human and the devil of the gene.

00:09:32--> 00:09:44

And there are other names. Allah mentions, for example, members of the gene called AI fleet, which is worse than the shape on remember in the story of Suleiman Allah sent him Allah says we'll call it a free two minute gene.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

I freed from the genes set to Sulayman I can do this. So I fleet is another form a higher what else call is experienced that they are deeper and deeper in disbelief than the shape line and they also have jeans

00:10:01--> 00:10:39

Shelton an NC well Jean from Sam makes a dot the shakedowns of the humans in the genes. So now we are clear that there is a life form called the genes directly from the Quran. A person who rejects this has rejected the information of the Quran, because there is no other. There is no other interpretation by our Prophet sallallahu Sallam or his companions, or in the Quran that would tell us otherwise. There is another life form and Allah specifies in the Quran, about a belief and his army. In the who eurocom whoever Judah hoomin hydrolat arona. He and his army, the army of the shakedowns of the genes can see you, whereas you cannot see them.

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

They exist here.

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

Now that I've said this, there was a gene.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

His name was obese.

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

His name was obese and Allah has cursed at least in the Quran.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

to curse someone and say Lana to someone

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

is a major sin in Islam, especially to a Muslim.

00:11:07--> 00:11:16

Only whom Allah has cursed you can curse we have no right to curse, because Allah The cursing in Arabic, loosely curse, but in Arabic called Lana literally means

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

to expel someone to expel someone out of the mercy of God.

00:11:23--> 00:11:44

And there's no way to enter Paradise without the mercy of God. say to someone may god curse you may or may Allah, Ilana in Arabic, is a tremendous word to say to someone, and the word land grabs us and then told us witnesses learn occurs to something an object or someone that doesn't deserve it. The learner returns back to its owner. If no one else deserves it,

00:11:45--> 00:11:54

you need to be very careful. It's the same as copper as well. You say to someone, you're a disbeliever. That word is released if no one is, if the person who said to is not entitled to it, it comes back at you.

00:11:56--> 00:12:24

There's a Muslim comes back. So that at least is cursed. He's one of those woman Allah spent Allah expelled him out of his mercy. One might think does Allah expel someone out of his mercy out of his forgiveness? When God called himself I am the most merciful I am the forgiver. He says in the Quran, that big daddy, not very bad in any unlawful Rahim, tell my servants that I am the Most Merciful. I am the oft forgiven.

00:12:25--> 00:12:30

There are many verses in the Quran, that Allah forgives all things, no matter how deep and how far you go.

00:12:32--> 00:12:53

There was another Hadith and Pudsey just to illustrate so you can appreciate this, Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Hadith, which the prophet SAW, Selim says, but he said it on behalf of God. So he says, God says, sometimes we get Hadees, that God says, but they're not in the Quran, but then narrated on the tongue of the prophesied. So this is out of respect and honor for our messenger to tell us that the Quran and the words of the Prophet have the same,

00:12:55--> 00:13:06

the characteristics are different, that's all. So he said, in a hadith could see, so when I tell, you could see Hadith could see means the Prophet said it with his mouth, on behalf of God, but it is not correct.

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

So he said, he could see that Allah says, My servant,

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

if you come to me on the Day of Judgment,

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

and you have got

00:13:18--> 00:13:19


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

as much as the world can hold of sins,

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

as much as the world can hold of sins,

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

but you approach you came to me on a day of judgment, and your heart

00:13:33--> 00:13:49

is free from any ship, ship, meaning, making partners with God in any way, so polytheism and making partners with God in any way, I will come I will meet you with that

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

with a forgiveness

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

the same size as your sins.

00:13:57--> 00:14:02

Now, that's one thing. But obviously, there are sins which alone may not forgive,

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

but I'm just illustrating to you how far God's forgiveness and mercy can reach

00:14:08--> 00:14:32

a man you know, this story which is embodied a man prompts us and tells us about a man, he killed 90 emoted 99 people, innocent lives. And after murdering them, he wanted to repent. He wanted to mend he wanted to fix it and he's thinking how can I? How is there possibly any space for me to do that? So he went to a worshipper, a what

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

a worshiper. Now when you say worshiper, not necessarily a knowledgeable person. Someone who was in his heart worshiping for decades, but had no knowledge, this worship or had no knowledge, just worships night and day, praise. reads, doesn't stand when he reads. He asked him, I have killed 99 lives it is there room for forgiveness for me to make amends. He says

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

To him, Well, you have killed 99 innocent souls.

00:15:04--> 00:15:26

There is no room for forgiveness for you. You're doomed. Man who does something like that? So the man is still in his rage still in his old habits still in his old, you know, character, obviously, what did he do? Killing is easy for him. He drew his sword and killed this man as well out of anger. Who are you to judge me said and killed him. He goes, Oh my God, that's 100

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

anger problems, this man, severe ones.

00:15:31--> 00:15:47

So he went, kept searching his life until he found a scholar, this time, a score. One who is knowledgeable about what he reads knowledgeable when he prays knowledgeable what Allah said not just ritual stuff for livestock philosophers, nobody's saying

00:15:48--> 00:16:04

laner heilala just it's just something and never knew find them doing the worst of Acts, because they don't understand what they're saying. They have no idea what the same cookie, you can teach a cookie to say the F word and you take it teach the cockatoo say The L Word let you know in total, just a cookie doesn't mean anything.

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

So he went to the scholar and the scholar said to him, there's only one way for you uses a severe circumstance. But there is a way still,

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

you have to leave the area that you're living in.

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

Because the community you're around, and the atmosphere you're around, has caused you to be the way you are.

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

If you want me to interpret what it's like today, for a person like him to in today's world, I would say the media around you, the friends that you have,

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

you know,

00:16:36--> 00:16:49

the things that the people that influence you around you are corrupt, you need to leave them. So you need to make that effort of change. Because the only way you will change is by leaving this. You have to change your environment has influenced you.

00:16:50--> 00:17:06

So he did that effort sincerely from his heart. The only thing that man had left with him over all his actions of his life was his sincere heart. Listen carefully, I'm going to tell you about a belief because there's a good moral here that fits with it the twist,

00:17:07--> 00:17:16

he still had a sincere heart, meaning he loved Allah. He wanted Allah He felt bad about what he did. But he couldn't feel

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

the wrong. He couldn't feel the wrong, he was too numb to it.

00:17:23--> 00:17:35

So he went he left on his way, exactly half of the way between him and that next place that he was migrating to. It was the color of Allah it was the will of Allah,

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

the pre measurement of God that the man had to die halfway.

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

And he fell in the narration says he fell headfirst forward.

00:17:47--> 00:17:57

It says that angels of the heaven and angels of angels of the mercy of angels of the torture came down. We discussed that in our series of the hereafter.

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

And now we're in conflicts

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

confused? The angels of mercy say he died

00:18:06--> 00:18:24

on forgiveness on truth. The other one said no, he died on sin. He didn't make it to the place that he was going to. So Allah subhanaw taala facilitated between them. And he said, if he is closer to the place that he is going to then he has one he has made the effort.

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

So they measured and found that he was a body link closer

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

fell forward.

00:18:33--> 00:18:46

That was actually a loss plan. Why alone to forgive him, but he wants to make the reason to forgive him. He doesn't make the choice for you, but he will assist you. Once you make the effort yourself. You have to make the first step.

00:18:47--> 00:18:52

The only way you can make the first step is if you are sincere, not hypocritical.

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

And now I take you back to Emily's

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

Remember what I said sincerity. I'm taking you back to the story of a police now.

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

A police was expelled out of the mercy of God I wonder what he did?

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

I wonder what he did.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

At least first of all was a jinn.

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

And he had a position among the ranks of the angels.

00:19:21--> 00:19:36

He actually worked among the angels literally. But he wasn't an angel. He was a jinn made a fire. The angels are made of light. Allah tells us that the angels are made of light and process centers is this. Here a special rank He was God fearing.

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

He was developed. He was a worship of Allah.

00:19:41--> 00:19:48

And he believed in the oneness of God in His might and power and everything and he turned to him he was a righteous servant of God

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

and every meaning of the word.

00:19:51--> 00:19:58

However, something inside of his heart. When we say heart, we don't mean literally the organ that's pumping blood.

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

When we say

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

Heart in Arabic we mean the mind something here

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

in here something inside

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

if you change hearts literally you're not going to change that that stays with you the mind something in here

00:20:15--> 00:20:24

at least had something in here something that wasn't right. He he was a sacred and Allah He doesn't put that in you

00:20:25--> 00:21:10

but Allah gives you the opportunity the circumstances to have it if you want to depending on how you choose this is the will of God His knowledge is unbelievable is only we cannot explain it. So at least a lot of tested a police use a test and there are many other plans as well to this test. At the same time the test of a police is also was also going to be a test for them Elisa alpha and the test of Adams was going to be a test for us. And so a lot of test any Forget about it. A person who is got a mind of a genius in chess, for example chess, in how much you plan in plan 20 100 moves ahead. Allah subhanaw taala has planned and knows not 100 moves in fit infinite moves. In one Hadith

00:21:10--> 00:21:41

it says before Allah created the world, he created the pen. And he told the pen to write everything that will be 50,000 years before the creation of this world. And Allah had his knowledge even before that. There's nothing that we're talking about the leaf that falls when it's gonna fall, how it's gonna fall out which place it's gonna fall, how it's going to get there. The leaf, the ant itself, selling his leg in its foot, how it's going to go, how it's going to move when it's going to end which cell is going to die.

00:21:42--> 00:21:51

If you want me to go deeper and deeper, your minds gonna, it's gonna reach a stage where there's no more thinking for us. You're going to start doubting, is it possible?

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

We don't think it is of course it is because we know it is there. We know it's there because here we are. The reality of it.

00:21:59--> 00:22:25

Allah says colo Colonel Basha rumeida nikolina Tierra de lenah phaedon Baraka Bella, and further Kelly medora be? Well, Gina Denise Lee, my dad, say, Tell them Mohammed, if the ocean of the world the waters of the world were turned into ink for the pen of my Lord metaphorical, if they were really ink,

00:22:27--> 00:22:40

the ink, the oceans will deplete, they'll run out before your loads, knowledge runs out, even if we brought another set of Oceans the same size to be the ink in another verse. If the

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

if the trees of the world we'll cut into pencils,

00:22:44--> 00:22:55

or pens, and the ink the oceans of the world were made as the ink that would run out, even if we brought back seven folds and more.

00:22:57--> 00:23:01

Allah says all the trees of the earth while bahariya motto

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

and the end the oceans keep on supporting giving more.

00:23:08--> 00:23:36

And the verse it says sebadoh upcoding, seven whole oceans of the earth are lost knowledge will never run out. It's never ending. So who are we comparing now? We can't. All we know is what happened, at least something about him last month that I wanted to do in the infinite knowledge deserving and with justice. Something had to happen. What was it? It had to happen? It's not like it's in God's knowledge that it had to be there. It's just how it had to be.

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

You can't blame God. It's that's how it had to be a police

00:23:42--> 00:23:50

was going to be tested with his righteousness. So Allah said to his angels one day in the Harlequin Bashara meeting.

00:23:52--> 00:24:06

This is a test of the angels, although the angels don't sin, but he wanted to teach the angels something and wanted to teach us something by telling them this, what is it? He said to them, oh, my angels I am about to create

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

a creation are being made of clay.

00:24:11--> 00:24:25

And the angels know that there are angels made of light. And Allah had created the genius made of fire Allah and he knows what else he has created before us. God knows, we don't know. We haven't been informed. But now the angels are told that a creature is going to be created from clay.

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

Now the angels had known the genes before what they had done.

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

They shed blood and corrupted on Earth. This earth was here before us, as according to the Quran, and the genes lived here and they still do and they corrupted and shed blood.

00:24:45--> 00:24:55

So Allah sent the angels down, and they actually had a battle, and they forced them out into the islands of the world. That's where their headquarters. This is knowledge which Allah told us about.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

So the angels replied at the Gylfi

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

You've seen a few CDFI highways, we could demand one national sub the hub Ambika Wanaka de sulak. They said, Our Lord, are you going to create a creature on earth that will shed blood again and corrupt again? When we glorify Your name, and you're in praise,

00:25:20--> 00:25:48

they're not questioning, but they're asking to seek knowledge that confused our Lord. Look, I mean, you know, here we are, we're praising you, we're glorifying you. The genies Look what they did. We don't understand the reason behind creating another creation when they're going to shed blood and corrupt. What are they actually saying? They're afraid. They're saying, in other words, our Lord, have we done something to you? Or you displeased with us? Because we're glorifying who we are. But obviously, they didn't understand what's happening. God

00:25:50--> 00:26:03

did not explain it to them explain it, because they will not understand until they see. So all he said was this color in the moon Allah tala moon, he said, I know that which you just do not know. You cannot know.

00:26:05--> 00:26:16

It's not that if I told you, you will know, it's like, you cannot know. Even if I told you, like, give you maybe an example that can sort of give us a simple understanding.

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

If you had a two year old child,

00:26:20--> 00:26:25

and you have an advanced piece of oven, advanced

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


00:26:30--> 00:26:32

To the two year old, it looks shiny.

00:26:34--> 00:26:59

But it's very hot. And they don't understand what that color is. An orange color on the cook on. It just looks nice, looks bright. How can you let that two year old child understand that if they touch that cooktop is going to burn them? They don't understand what hate is. They don't understand what the Olay sees a bright color. You can say it to them in 1000 different ways. They will not understand it.

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

Unless they feel something.

00:27:05--> 00:27:12

Yeah. So with the angels, their knowledge is premature for this type of knowledge.

00:27:13--> 00:27:22

This type of knowledge, I lost it in the womb, Allah tala, I know what I'm doing. I know what you do not know you cannot know this unless you experience what's going to happen.

00:27:24--> 00:27:25


00:27:26--> 00:27:34

so I'll create a family who said that one day we'll go through the detailed story of his creation. But I want to get you to the point now. He created Adam alayhis salam.

00:27:36--> 00:27:42

When I'm not created to Adam alayhis, salaam, at least had heard the angels what they had asked.

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

And everybody's talking about.

00:27:46--> 00:28:10

And a police is starting to think here what what, what is so special about this creature which God had created curiosity. And at the same time, something began to develop in his heart, a form of jealousy. Why here is a belief among the rank of the angels wanting to please his Lord loves his Lord wants to please Him.

00:28:11--> 00:28:36

And now something had come up, which he had never anticipated, never thought of. And suddenly he feels something strange coming out. He could have controlled it, but he didn't take over consume him. It was the jealousy, jealousy began. So he went to look at this creature. And he saw it. It didn't look too impressive to him. It was made of clays, dark, it was dark in color, because there was no soul. It was just clay.

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

He tapped it, and he kicked it.

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

And it made a ringing sound.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

And he was able to flow through it.

00:28:50--> 00:28:57

Because he's created from a less dense material which is for flames of fire, he was able to flow through this body.

00:28:58--> 00:29:06

And he found as in the Hadith, he found that we were hollow. If you take the drain the blood and everything, were very hollow, actually.

00:29:08--> 00:29:18

Our blood makes up more like probably about more than 60% of our, of our body mass. Huge, hollow. So he thought you are a weak creature. That's what he thought.

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

How we thought it because of the way he's created the lohana.

00:29:24--> 00:29:31

As time went, Allah left the body of Adam alayhis salam like that. And every time at least looked at it. He felt fear a bit.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

Looking at a dead body is quite frightening, isn't it? Well imagine seeing something like that, at least sorted and he was frightened. But at the same time. He's trying to beat his fear and say I'm better than you. You're not going to be better than me. Do whatever you want. Now the angels on the other hand, said among each other, said, Look, inshallah, God willing, he's not displeased with us. But no matter what he creates,

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

We know that we are God's favored, but they weren't jealous. They were just fearful will God is God displeased with them have they lacked in Judy's that's all different to Emily's abuse is like jealousy is not going to be better than me I'm going to be better than him. What's so special about him like that? I will always be God's favorite and eat and I'm gonna and I'm gonna do everything about it to be that way. It's like that the angels were, we're sure is not going to be better than us but if he is we're not. We're not upset someone is is pleased with us like that.

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

Allah lift him there until that jealousy developed more and more and more.

00:30:39--> 00:30:48

More. And now it turned into proudness arrogance, jealousy turned into proudness I want you brothers and sisters. Jealousy

00:30:49--> 00:30:56

is the first disease of the heart, which develops into proudness like cancer starts from a simple thing.

00:30:57--> 00:31:07

starts from let's say, standing underneath the UV of the sun, sand underneath it long enough, you may get cancer with less or Mahalla, the cancer of the heart is proudness is Kibriya.

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

So now he had proudness

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

and he didn't do anything about it. Allah created Adam put his soul into him.

00:31:16--> 00:31:20

story goes on, and he brought Adam alayhis salam before the angels

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

with Pilar on Brooklyn.

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

He catches Juliet and

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

fussa Joe in. He really

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

was stuck about all I can feel.

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

Sorry for the croaky voice.

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

He said,

00:31:45--> 00:31:51

and when your Lord brought Adam alayhis salam before the angels, he said to them,

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

Prostrate to Adam

00:31:56--> 00:32:03

joola bow down to him on the ground to add the malaise for Sasha to the angels all obeyed.

00:32:05--> 00:32:10

There's a letter, the letter before the word Sasha do which means

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

they frustrated, there's a letter it says fat first Sasha do.

00:32:16--> 00:32:21

For Sasha do means they immediately frustrated, no hesitation.

00:32:22--> 00:32:30

Then Allah says in legalese, except for a beliefs. He didn't prostrate, then a lot further explains why

00:32:31--> 00:32:39

he chose to refuse, he actually objected. He refused. So it was a conscious refusal.

00:32:40--> 00:33:04

So he didn't think that he couldn't, he could. But he consciously refused, telling us that is the same for us as humans, you also have a choice. And if you don't, it's because you consciously chose not to, knowingly, at least ever. Coming back to him was stuck. But not only did he refuse, Allah is telling us why he refused. The reason he refused is because

00:33:05--> 00:33:10

he allowed himself to be proud, proud as and not happy, arrogant.

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

What can I mean that caffeine and that resulted in him becoming among the disbelievers. He hid the truth care for the literally the word cafa means to hide the truth deep and to cover it up. That's what gafa means. knowing the truth, hiding it, denying it.

00:33:27--> 00:33:41

So COVID can also mean denial. Not just disbelief, denial of the truth knowing it. That's why some people don't know the truth. Can we call them gopher and the learners but the word calf is one who knows the truth denies it

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

and then build some false wood on top of it argues debates on false hold.

00:33:47--> 00:33:52

So at least was one of those another one Allah another reason allotment Allah says

00:33:53--> 00:34:09

ablaze explains. Allah says Karla Menaka I let us do the Lima Falak to be a what prevented you are pleased to prostrate to one way I've created with my own hands. Allah created him directly. What did it please respond Carla and

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

I am better than him better than him.

00:34:15--> 00:34:18

I'm better than him better than him. Why Why don't

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

you make me out of a fire fire

00:34:24--> 00:34:32

Marie Marie. Clink flame from fire fire he's from he's from clay clay. He's from rubbish.

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

On Fire his claim that candidates cannot be equal. I'm better than I'm higher. I'm right up here man. He's down here.

00:34:41--> 00:34:46

Is it okay do humans go through that? Yes, they do. This is proud I was of ala

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

rasulillah to send them said late halogen that I hadn't.

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

processing them said

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

we call behemoth cohabitee Minka.

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

No one will enter Paradise. If in their heart is an atom's worth, or a mustard seeds worth of proudness

00:35:08--> 00:35:22

they said Yara Salalah what is proud in so we can avoid it. He said it's two things, to reject it to deny it reject the truth when it comes to you, arrogantly and to look down upon others, to see yourself that you are better than others.

00:35:24--> 00:35:34

So you show you put yourself above them, and that you are privileged more than them like that. That's why the prophet SAW Selim hated anyone standing up for him out of honor.

00:35:36--> 00:35:49

He didn't he didn't like people standing to know how long to stand to someone like your father, your grandfather with some respect, but the person should not like people to stand up for him out of honor and respect. That's why we are bedded with buried within the cloth.

00:35:51--> 00:36:14

That's why Allah says fella to Sacco and fusa comb. Arlen will be many taco never praise yourselves and righteous and then say I am righteous. It is God who knows really who is righteous. And that was a Columbo circle. There are some people Allah says, What either Tila Tequila Asada, too lazy to listen. And when it is said to him, the person with proudness fear your Lord, be conscious of your Lord.

00:36:15--> 00:36:41

He rejects a harder to listen, he begins proud and says, well, what's wrong with me? Why shouldn't you feel your Lord may be telling me you should go and feel your love? Don't tell me. That's a part of proudness when a person says fear alone, you put your head down like the one who said to him, oh bla bla, bla bla when he stood up as the meat of the believers. And he said to them, if I tell you to do something wrong, I are in my leadership, what will you do? What can you do?

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

Imagine now, presidents mentioned era presidents of today, standing up said what are you going to do?

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

If anyone says anything they finished on top of stances? What are you going to do if I choose to

00:36:58--> 00:37:06

Abdullah and then guess what? I will obey that manager Ah, from down there, he looked at him, and he signaled didn't even need to say he just said this.

00:37:07--> 00:37:09

We will show you the edge of the sword

00:37:10--> 00:37:22

if you earn lead these people astray. So what if you're a leader, you have a responsibility on my will help Bob put his head down and cried. And he said the reason I asked this question is because the prophets I send them said,

00:37:23--> 00:37:49

corruption in the meaning corruption of my oma is upon corrupted leaders. And hamdulillah I find people among my flock that are still righteous, it means that I'm not corrupting show. You see? No proudness and he said, If I earn I take someone's right. I will place my cheek on the floor. And you will step on my other cheek until I give you back your right I promise you,

00:37:50--> 00:37:58

Abubakar Adela Juan. He wrote a letter to the king of Rome, the emperor of Rome, presenting the Byzantine Empire

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

he said to him Regulus

00:38:04--> 00:38:28

Why do you not feel God? Why did not believe in him? Why are you arrogant at Aqaba, Rolla Are you feeling proud of us over God? Gay fetta kabara Allah How can you feel proud in this in front of God will enter levinas ultimate measurable bony maritime and you came out of the same exit where urine exits from twice you came from near twice

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

where you're in exits from,

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

from the male and the female. You came out there twice. We as humans, first from the Father than from them. So birth.

00:38:43--> 00:38:54

Allahu Akbar. remember Allah says funyuns only in Santa min masala. Let men remember. What are they created from? Don't ever have proudness over others. Remember what you created.

00:38:56--> 00:39:05

If you want to be up and high, as in high as in, you don't go for drugs to be up in high. You go for your righteousness, spirituality. That's what makes you important

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

up in the ranks of the angels.

00:39:09--> 00:39:14

So he said I am better than him. You made me from fire. And he is from clay.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

I'm white.

00:39:18--> 00:39:18

You're dark.

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

I'm dark. You're white.

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

I'm from this family. You're from that family.

00:39:28--> 00:39:42

We don't marry from people like that we don't associate with you. In Islam, there's no such thing. This is the greatest the first major sin ever should. It's actually should it's proud of this issue with Allah. So he said I am better than him. You made me from fire. You made him from clay I refuse to prostrate to him.

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


00:39:48--> 00:39:57

Allah then said to him, okay, very well. Are you adamant about your decision, said I am adamant. Allah gave him chances. He continued.

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

Then Allah finally

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

They said to him,

00:40:01--> 00:40:08

I created them and I am the one who commanded you. You have disobeyed me outright. And arrogantly.

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

He said

00:40:11--> 00:40:24

why Exotica was allelic This is now a police's reply. When I told him I'm the one who's commending you, this is a police's reply, why Exotica Jelic, he swore an oath by God's honor and his mind

00:40:25--> 00:40:32

along with big arguments, that arrogance, then he acknowledges Allah knows Allah and he knows his honor and his mind. And he says, I swear by your honor and might.

00:40:34--> 00:40:45

It means he believes in God. He knows God better than most people have today. And of the past, in fact, maybe more than anyone who's existed except for the prophets, he knows a lot very well,

00:40:46--> 00:40:48

by your might and by your power.

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

I will lead them all astray.

00:40:54--> 00:41:00

He swears by a loss on the end technology in his mind and on and then he tells him what you've done. I'm going to record.

00:41:02--> 00:41:12

It's like saying, I believe you, you are more powerful than me and you are mighty. You can do anything you want. I know that. But you know what you've done, I'm going to record

00:41:15--> 00:41:40

is utmost arrogance proudness of any sort, at least therefore Allah says, Okay, very well. You want to Allah system, you want to lead them astray. That's the challenge. He said, We are no magic man. I'm going to lead all these children astray. I'm going to go to every one of them and lead them astray. Allah said okay, very well. Since you've done that. I'll give you some ideas as well, because you can go for that challenge. I'll challenge you to. He said,

00:41:41--> 00:42:04

Well, actually ballet him behind. Lika virginica was Sherry Campbell. Mr. Lee will Willa divide whom? What am I do Homer shaitan en la hora. Go ahead, lead for services minister pata minhang basaltic. Before that, climb on top of any one of them that you are able to that stuff is is is an Arabic word used for climbing on a horse and steering it

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

to climb and I was the spirit, if you're a good horseman, he says his surfaces be a good horseman, and climb on pot on top of the servants who want to be horses for you.

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

And try to dilute them away with your voice.

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

So pick what's right on his voice.

00:42:23--> 00:42:53

I'll leave it up to you to analyze what is Sharon's voice. Do you think, since he can't hear him What is his voice, therefore, I leave that. And then he said, and try to dilute them away by showing them materialism, materialistic things. Let them be involved in materialistic things with their horses, and they're well groomed. In other words, their cars and their homes and their clothes and their money and this and then their desires, and sharik home associated with them, like be a part, be a partner

00:42:54--> 00:43:09

with their children, use their children against them. And with their money, use their money against them. Why doom and gives them and give them false hopes or false promises. And also in another verse,

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

make them afraid make them afraid of poverty, that in the future, they're going to get poor so then they'll resort to heroin, to theft or to

00:43:18--> 00:43:31

indecent types of haraam jobs to earn their money or to in decent earnings, improper earnings. make them afraid they're gonna get poor, you're gonna lose that you're gonna be out on the street. So go and get high don't do that. A lot of times shut down to do that.

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

Allah says but the shaitan never promises anyone except deception. He does not mean anything. He says.

00:43:39--> 00:43:42

He knows you better than yourself. And you work step by step.

00:43:43--> 00:43:47

Now guess what Allah then said to him, this was at least replied, he said,

00:43:49--> 00:43:54

then oh my lord, and literally lie on your bathroom. Okay? The challenge between you and me is the No.

00:43:55--> 00:43:58

But I want something from you. If that's the case,

00:43:59--> 00:44:02

keep me alive until the Day they are resurrected. Give me time.

00:44:04--> 00:44:18

Allah says in the communist mover in a Yeoman walk tomorrow, we will give you time but not what you're asking. Not until the Day of Resurrection, you want to escape death? No. We will give you time until the end of the world. When the hour goes, You will die with them.

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

That's your time. Then

00:44:22--> 00:44:24

Allah sitting But wait.

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

In ibehre de

00:44:32--> 00:44:37

I'm going to tell you something, my true servants. You will not have power over them.

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

That's the only thing.

00:44:40--> 00:44:53

Then the police replied. He said Okay. I will lead them all astray. in there. I better come in hemangioma philosophy, except your servants among them who are sincere.

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

Those are the only types of people my brothers and sisters who believes in the Shelton have absolutely

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

no power over. The ones whose hearts are absolutely sincere. There's no hypocrisy in it.

00:45:08--> 00:45:14

Repent to a low when they do wrong, they feel regret when they've done wrong, they blame themselves and they've gone astray

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

and they complain to Allah.

00:45:20--> 00:45:28

Hello Salalah Highland avino Mohammed. While early wasafi Jemaine Joseph from low food, Allah rewards he was sent mid America
