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

hamdulillah was salat wa salam ala Rasulillah.

00:00:16--> 00:00:18

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam

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

I'm just getting over a virus and my voice sounds a bit unusual open shell now it's not too irritating

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

today I want to start by just going over, listen to last week a little bit because it was rushed last week and the volume wasn't that good. I'll just go over it very quickly, and then inshallah we'll continue our journey on the bias of the province. And even

00:00:49--> 00:00:51

from lesson one, we finished off

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

with the verses of the Quran telling us the story of Allah subhanho wa Taala ordering the angels, all of them

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

to make Suzhou wood to prostrate to this new creation

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

alley

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

we spoke about how amazing his creation is, the human being, we call them the human being today.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

In Arabic, Allah calls them in said

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

in said means one who likes companionship.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

One who is social,

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

one who likes to communicate.

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

Also, there's a slight meaning to miss yen. Slide, which means to forgetful.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

Allah also cause the causes better.

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

The children of Adam

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

and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, good local mean, whatever the movement around, you are all

00:02:02--> 00:02:09

you all originated from Adam, and Adam originated from the soil

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

from Earth, meaning no one is superior to another, you're all the same.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

What I want to highlight right now is this.

00:02:22--> 00:02:26

Humans are not the greatest creation that Allah ever made.

00:02:29--> 00:02:37

Allah said in the Quran, the Hulk was what he called the Kabbalah woman, Harlequin nurse, when I came back for a nurse Eli.

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

Allah said,

00:02:41--> 00:02:49

the creation of the heavens. And when we say the heavens means in Arabic, Asana means anything that is above the Earth.

00:02:50--> 00:03:00

Or if you want to talk scientific, technical, technically, scientifically, everything that is in the solar system in the universe in the cosmos, anything that is beyond the

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

there called heavens,

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

the universe above and around the earth.

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

And the creation of the Earth itself

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

is greater, more magnificent, more complex than the creation of the human.

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

But many people just do not know they don't understand they don't comprehend this.

00:03:32--> 00:03:50

There is another verse in the Quran, what almost kind of data hints to us, that He will open the doors in the future to teach us for us to discover what he's talking about. Although even then it'll be only a speck of a speck, Allah said, salary him a benefit.

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

And we shall show them human beings in the future, to come

00:03:58--> 00:04:07

out of silence, Phil Clark and the horizons in space, where he oversees him, and in their own biological makeup when we met,

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

and things they had never known before.

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

Scientists say we are getting closer and closer to the truth.

00:04:20--> 00:04:33

To me, this is a ridiculous statement. And I come from a science background myself. I can tell you that it's a ridiculous statement. Because how do you know that you are getting closer to the truth if you've never know what the truth is?

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

How do you test that?

00:04:36--> 00:04:47

When we do experiments, we have a test tube or some kind of some some sample called the standard. We test all our experiments on this standard.

00:04:50--> 00:04:54

So if we don't really have a standard to test if we're getting closer to the truth or not, how do we know?

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanaw taala has already shown us the truth. We are just working out how

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

In this universe is working, what not why?

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

So Allah said

00:05:06--> 00:05:21

that there are more magnificent creations than a human. But the difference is, Allah honored the human being. And he, he or she is special to a lot of data as a creation than anything else.

00:05:22--> 00:05:42

To tell us, that it is not in the complex design of something that makes it better than something else, but rather the values that exist in you. And the most significant thing in the human being is what that he or she has been given, choice and free will.

00:05:44--> 00:05:59

You can choose to obey or disobey. You can choose to save a life. Obviously, metaphorically speaking, only Allah can keep people alive, but you can choose to help save a life or you can choose to murder a life.

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

You can choose

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

to help people or to destroy the lives of people.

00:06:08--> 00:06:14

Similarly, you can choose to follow Allah's guidance, or go against this goddess and make yourself a God.

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

Allah gave that free choice also to another creature called the genes.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

But the genes are not as special as the humans.

00:06:26--> 00:06:45

Allah created in the universe, something special which is called a soul. This rule is what keeps you alive. And Allah did not give it to any of the creation. Allah says that he there's a way to refer to him and Rohit to the angels once I have fashion

00:06:47--> 00:07:02

is created creature. I didn't call him Adam, physically this creature that I'm creating, once I fashion this being and I uploaded into him from my soul, then prostrating my soul doesn't literally mean from Allah himself out to be that we are not part of God physically.

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

Marysol here is a metaphor, it's a linguistic in Arabic is saying my thing can mean it belongs to me.

00:07:11--> 00:07:28

Or it is part of my America. Or it is the most special thing to me. My favorite song, and the angels thought, How special is this? That Allah is going to place this soldiers never used before He created this soul? It is this what keeps us alive? Otherwise? How do we explain life and death?

00:07:29--> 00:07:33

Definitely science and doctors cannot explain life and

00:07:34--> 00:07:49

bring the person back to life. Allah says, if you are truthful, Allah says Kennedy couldn't have a remedy. If you think that you will not be resurrected by a power beyond you meaning by God, then why don't you bring back the dead?

00:07:51--> 00:08:07

Or when the person is dying in front of you, all your doctors and all your scientists or professors of the world, as that person is dying? Let it be your most beloved, your own child and your own spouse, your parents, why don't you bring him back? Don't let him die. Bring him back. You can't and unless it's kind of your own, and

00:08:08--> 00:08:13

you will return it if you can. What is it? It is the soul? What is the soul is not all

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

my brothers and sisters in Islam anyway.

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

We look at everything around us.

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

And we find that subservient. The sun, the moon, clouds, everything.

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

It is in an order.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

Something is controlling

00:08:35--> 00:08:49

that we don't believe in God call it names to get her themselves away from believing in God, the Creator and intelligent being beyond us. They say it's something called Mother Nature.

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

And they make many other names. So how do I even then they use

00:08:55--> 00:09:23

and it's intelligent being mother, that somebody is metaphoric, but because so confusing. It's inherently in us in our subconscious mind in our inheritance inherently in us as an instinct, that they must be a maker, but we force it over this mother nature, this evolution. Without a creator, we as Muslims call it, Allah, God. You can call it whatever you want. But at the end of the day, it's an intelligent design

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

a lot of the Levers without a guidance.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

He sent to us His messengers and prophets

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

and he gave us instinctive intuition. Have you ever heard of that word intuition?

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

As a vertical word intuition

00:09:44--> 00:09:52

no one has heard the word intuition 123 Put your hands up what you playing games with cables.

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

Gonna come off. Don't worry. I don't want to want you to give me as a waste time.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

What I'm going to say is in

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

intuition, we are born with this natural

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

intelligence.

00:10:08--> 00:10:35

And we can explain what it is you can call it the conscience, the subconscious intuition, something inside you that guides you to a certain limit. But then you need more guidance as you get older. You need people with experience to teach you and you need if you're going to believe in the hereafter, and all that you need the hereafter and unseen things you need prophets and messengers that come to you from the maker, Who is Allah. And so we have instinct which is called fit through

00:10:36--> 00:10:46

the natural thing that makes causes you to ask, where did I come from? There must be a Creator, your mind tosses it you make sense? What the sense may arise just makes sense to me.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

And God said prophets and messengers,

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

Allah said in the Quran,

00:10:53--> 00:11:01

in that they will help you with any, we have sent you a muffin man with the truth to proclaim good news and toward

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

what you mean imagine elastography her and as he

00:11:10--> 00:11:16

never has there been a nation, but I want it has come to them, a one meaning a prophet and messenger.

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

Allah says,

00:11:21--> 00:11:32

We raised a messenger in every community, to tell them meaning all the people that have ever existed in the past, Allah has sent a prophet and messenger to them.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

All people have been sent Prophets and Messengers.

00:11:39--> 00:11:56

We have sent, Allah said, we raised the messenger in every community to tell them, serve Allah and avoid or shown something called a poor quote, the mission of the prophets and messengers from a more word to, again,

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

to proclaim good news and to warn.

00:12:01--> 00:12:29

And to tell people to serve Allah to worship Allah. And in its place opposite to worshiping Allah to shun and avoid and reject something called to halt. Who's going to do it to hope before good, what is up for hope. It's repeated in the Quran many times from a yoke for a bit Doherty where you will ever this believes in a thought and believes in Allah for a distance that go beyond what is truly held onto the property.

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

Every Prophet and Messenger This was their main mission built on that, to disbelieve in to hold them to believe in Allah, that's it, what is a thought hooked

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

up or who is

00:12:43--> 00:13:04

any thing that is worshipped other than Allah, anything, you name it, if people worship it is called other than Allah, therefore it's evil. Not only does it mean everything that is worshipped other than Allah, but also, and the core of any being the call of any being who calls to them.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

Or having any association with them,

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

helping and assisting someone who calls to the boat, and helping them in that call in that mission.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

associating yourself with calling into it,

00:13:24--> 00:13:27

is you following up?

00:13:28--> 00:13:39

This doesn't mean that you don't associate partnership with non Muslims, because they call to worshipping, for example, Jesus, or Moses, or idols or Buddha or whatever.

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

What it means.

00:13:44--> 00:13:59

Well, Buddhists don't really worship Buddha, they don't believe in God. But Hindus, for example, are called to different gods to deities, or whatever it is. It means that you can join with them in things that are worldly beneficial, but not when it comes to worship.

00:14:00--> 00:14:07

Anything that associated or representative, representing and you might say, I don't believe in what they believe in.

00:14:08--> 00:14:21

But you take part in the things the aspects of that belief that is joining the phone. So every prophet and messenger can't tell people stay away from that or hold and worship only Allah.

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

Every prophet and messenger did that has never changed.

00:14:28--> 00:14:53

Allah says there are Allah God is something God had. A lot of people asked me, What do you mean if God sent prophets and messengers to guide people? And then he says, he then guided some people, and some of them he left to go astray. What does that mean? Is that my fault that I'm not guided as a privilege because God guided them? What does the word God God had? Me?

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

Don't misunderstand. If I'm not God, someone what it means is doesn't mean that he places it

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

in their hearts, some holy spirit that makes them suddenly

00:15:04--> 00:15:21

believers and they don't know why a Muslim is not a blind follower. We analyze we reason, and then we believe, but Allah subhana, Allah says it had meaning he sent forth signs and things to make you think and ponder and reflect and reason.

00:15:22--> 00:15:48

It's like a person, let's say you're in a place where you're a stranger in a place, you don't know where to go. So you get someone who's local. And they guide you, they tell you listen, if you take this road, it'll take you to such a place, you will see this side, take a left turn, and so on, although give you a map says follow this direction they highlighted for you. They gave you guidance, but they don't accompany you. So you take the map and you take their guidance, and then it's up to you

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

to follow their guidance.

00:15:52--> 00:15:59

Or to not, it's up to you. You were given guidance. And if you follow their guidance, then that means they guide you.

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

But they didn't force you. They didn't make you alone when he says Heather means he gave all the reasons and the purposes for you to be guided. You'd live

00:16:13--> 00:16:26

he gave you the guidance. And then if you take any other path, what Allah has created the world to be such in such a way that if you don't follow His guidance, then it will be misguided. So that's what it means when Allah says he needs to respond.

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:16:29--> 00:16:37

Allah said, Go back the earth then and observe what was the end of those who rejected the messengers, calling them liars.

00:16:39--> 00:17:02

Allah invites us to travel the earth, and to look at ruins and things that people generations before us tribes and ancient civilizations left behind. To tell us look, there were civilizations who thought they were the best and the most superior, but Allah destroyed them. Now you might be asking, What do you mean Allah just destroys people for not believing in not like that.

00:17:03--> 00:17:20

Brothers and sisters, they were destroyed by their own actions, not only because they chose to follow the wrong guidance, but also called His Messengers Loras I'll give you an example. You will know about global warming, don't you? You know, global warming.

00:17:22--> 00:17:43

I hope Muslims are not the last people to care about global warming should be our priority as well. Because the Earth belongs to Allah. And Allah said, You are inheritors of the Khalifa remember? And Allah Medina says in the Quran, Catherine Fussa. Different very well, God, the Mecca, Sabbath ad nurse, corruption has exceeded inland,

00:17:44--> 00:17:51

on land and in the seas, the corruption of Allah's nature, because of what man man's hands have done.

00:17:53--> 00:17:53

Right?

00:17:55--> 00:18:01

Global warming, when people are the cause of all of this global warming by their own hands.

00:18:02--> 00:18:10

It's half the problem. That is that we have caused the other the bigger problem is when we deny it and ignore it and don't care about it.

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

What is the consequence, the destruction of our own lives.

00:18:16--> 00:18:33

So when the people don't want to follow the prophets and messengers, by their own has their destruct destroyed themselves, and they also denied them even rejected that they're from God and that you take the the whole universe in its creation, or the purpose of their existence.

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

So there's some of them got destroyed by their own doings, and some of them Allah subhanaw taala destroyed them for a reason he knows.

00:18:43--> 00:18:49

Allah said through murder so notice will enter into trial. Then we send our messages in succession.

00:18:50--> 00:19:04

After one another. Prophets are the Prophet sometimes twos and threes sometimes in 10s, in fives all at once. Sometimes, for example, four or five or 10 provinces will die, and immediately other prophets will take over.

00:19:07--> 00:19:46

Allah says, We have revealed to you as we reveal, to know and the prophets after and will reveal to Abraham Ismail, Isaac, Jacob and the offsprings of Jacob, the offsprings of Jacob are the 12 Signs of the Prophet yaku. Allah sent from them they they called the children of Israel, the Jews. He said from them most of the prophets and messages and Jesus and John and Jonah and Aaron Solomon and we gave to David czars, all these names of biblical biblical, the biblical sort of pronounced, but they're also acceptable in the Quran, the consola Eman, wound wood and so on.

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

Allah says that he has told us about some of the prophets and messengers and some of them he did not tell us about. Allah says Allah rasool Allah the Cosna, whom I like, we reveal to the messengers

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

We revealed to you some of the messengers, and some of them we haven't told you about.

00:20:07--> 00:20:16

Well, so they're not suicidal, what could what can love Allah who set the clean, we have not told you of some of them and to Moses, Allah spoke directly.

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

So the prophets and messengers that we are told about, they're not all the Prophets and Messengers sent.

00:20:25--> 00:21:04

The prophets and messengers are not all equal in rank. And not all of them have the same faith as the miracles, some of them admitted miracles on favors than others, some of them are of a higher rank and importance than others. But what's equal among them is what the message is equal, they all came from Allah, the whole kind of the same message. So Allah says, did come also from bone about a woman, ba, ba ba. And those messages, who have been designated to God people, we have exalted some of them above the others, mean human can level more among them as such, that we have spoken to by Allah Himself,

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

one of our vulnerable versions, and some he exalted in other respects.

00:21:11--> 00:21:32

So this is plural, there could be more than one or two prophets who spoke to Allah directly and on both spoke to them directly, more salaries, salaries mentioned to Allah Serpentine, and also, Muhammad the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem Allah spoke to him directly in Ostrava, Mirage, long Hadith. And Allah may have spoken to many other messengers before in France.

00:21:34--> 00:21:46

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, how many prophets were there? We said last week. Allahu Allah, only Allah knows how many but there are more than 100,000 Prophets and Messengers ever sent to people. Many, many, many.

00:21:48--> 00:21:54

And the ones that I mentioned in the Quran are response there are 25 Other Idris

00:21:56--> 00:22:04

Idris in English they say, No, no, no. Who would? Who because he was an error, sorry.

00:22:06--> 00:22:11

Ibrahim, Abraham originally from Babylonia not moved not

00:22:12--> 00:22:41

is Ishmael of Izmir it became an error or is that is held from the children of Israel? Yeah. Who was it? Sorry, who was the ancestors of the Israelites? Is Hera Yahoo. Jacob. Use of Joseph, are you John Shaw, Harlan, Eric Musa, Moses, Colin, Aaron Jonas. Jonah. The old David slimed Solomon in Yes.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

I don't know what it is in the USA.

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

Elijah something like that. Zachary. Yeah. Zachariah. Yeah, John Raisa Jesus, the gift.

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

And Mohammed Soleimani was

00:22:58--> 00:23:10

25 prophets are mentioned in the Quran. But that's not all I suggest. So when Allah says that you must believe in all of his messengers and prophets, it means even those whom you haven't mentioned,

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

other names that were mentioned by Hadith.

00:23:15--> 00:23:38

She said, in an authentic hadith, you Shah even known Joshua, son of Noah, in an authentic hadith. And also narration is called other prophets such as Daniel De Niro, and Shem Shem when shanwa is this authentic hadith that probably came from Israelite traditions.

00:23:40--> 00:23:41

Israel traditions.

00:23:43--> 00:23:59

Now, when you tip we're talking about the prophets and messengers, we get our information from the Quran, from the Sunnah conference ourselves words, or if it doesn't exist in the Quran and Sunnah. They exist in Israel like traditions, the Jews in the Christian traditions.

00:24:01--> 00:24:09

So sometimes I'll tell you stories now tell me about Israeli traditions and what we believe about the Israelite traditions is that anything that comes in the

00:24:10--> 00:24:37

so called Bible or today, we don't have the original Bible anymore. By the way, last time someone commented, says, There's no such thing as Holy Bible. I said, what the ancient holy Bibles? Let me explain something for the sisters, the word Bible means holy book. That's what the word Bible means. It doesn't literally mean the Christian Bible or the Jewish Bible. It means holding a book with us. It's an ancient Greek word or Babylonian would

00:24:39--> 00:24:46

be blossom. The Quran is also a Bible. So when I say only one has the means the original was that Allah sent upon Jesus and Moses and over.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

So whatever the Bible or the Israelite tradition, say, if the Quran and Sunnah has not mentioned it, and it doesn't contradict our teachings, then we don't

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

say that we believe it, nor do we deny it. We just say it could be true could be false. That's the way we address the Israelite traditions.

00:25:09--> 00:25:29

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, having talked about the books which Allah sent, I asked you last week how many books did Allah said? And some people said seven some people said noise some people said for the books that we know about our five dissolves the Quran, the torah, the NG and Sophia Ibrahim.

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

And it's also so Musa

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

there is an unconfirmed report from a hadith

00:25:39--> 00:25:46

by Abdullah Allah one that he said that the courts are seldom said they will more than 104 books.

More than 104 books

by Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:25:54--> 00:26:36

the difference between Navi and Rasul we said last time, some scholar says there is no difference. Others they say the Nummies they carried on the tradition of the results or the said no, it's not true. Others said that a NaVi is someone who Allah chose as a special being but it's not ordered to convey the message. And we said this is refuted because Allah will not give a person and NaVi a position without the mission of conveyed. So the difference between nothing and Rasool to the best of the opinions that I read is that a Rasul is someone whom his people did not accept easily, and they fought him. And and Naveen is someone who the majority of his people accepted him and were

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

happy with

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

which makes her assume more important because his responsibility was more difficult.

00:26:44--> 00:26:51

Both Naveen Andhra soon received washy the angels release to come to them both of them is to receive miracles and science.

00:26:53--> 00:27:02

But not everyone who received miracles and science or received what he which means you believe came to them means that they are a prophet.

00:27:04--> 00:27:13

Maria, Maria, Salah Maria Maria, we said our data center doesn't make use of profit data center, peace of mind, Maria Musa as mother, as

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

the wife of Pharaoh,

00:27:16--> 00:27:24

Allah sent way to them, what he means an inspiration, a divine revelation, why they can come in your dreams.

00:27:25--> 00:27:38

Why you can come and read like an angel of any angel can come to you what it can be a feeling and inspiration that Allah puts in you. Allah says while hanging out, you know when we will sell, we gave inspiration, we're here to the mother of rules.

00:27:40--> 00:27:48

And so many young Santa Eneko we sent a pop to her Our spirit meaning Gibreel angels up this was called the waffle goddess.

00:27:50--> 00:28:16

This doesn't mean that they were prophets. And the reason I'm saying this is because the question were they are women prophets. This is a controversial thing that people are talking about. And you will find that some a very small minority of traditional scholars of the past, were on the opinion that they were women prophets, but not women who are suits and messenger women but profit women

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

and the ones

00:28:19--> 00:28:55

and the ones who are of this opinion as far as like a hustle and luxury, and cultivate and even hustle. A lot of people say when you say scholars who you mean likes to go and give talks at a university and you when you're talking to academic people, they're very technical and it says when you say scholars, who do you mean in specific, what is your reference? So this is what I mean traditional scholars have a hustler Shania Twain even has you gotta quit you don't even have we don't even know that maybe. Because that down the drain. Anyway, I'm sorry. So I'm not I'm not putting it down. Those of you who knows the scholars, then you shall not already know what I'm

00:28:55--> 00:29:28

talking about. They were of the opinion that when women prophets are not women are suits and because they're distinguished, they say Rasul is someone who said, with a mission to convey, but a prophet is someone who served as a noble person, but doesn't have to convey. And we already said, we reject the idea that the Prophet doesn't convey. This goes against the whole mission of Prophethood anywhere, if a normal person has to convey been given the absence, as I've said, before, no one's allowed to keep the knowledge to themselves, then how can we say about prophets keeping knowledge to themselves, everybody has a mission to convey. It's called Dark widow, in essence, we call to the

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

path of yoga. So we reject that idea, therefore, and

00:29:32--> 00:29:40

the rest of the scholars all unanimously agree that all the Prophets and Messengers were men, and the last month that Allah said in the Quran,

00:29:42--> 00:29:53

there isn't a messenger that we have sent except men from among men, and the word Regera in Malaysia, and there were men that were received revelation from Djibouti. And

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

just because the these women received way doesn't mean that they will profits for

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

There are authentic hadith about other people, normal people and angels came to them with a message. There's a hadith in Sahih, Muslim Bukhari authentic hadith that a man was visiting a sick person, he went to visit a sick person for the sake of Allah. So Allah sent to him an angel from the heavens, in the form of a man. And he met this man said, Where are you going? He said, I'm going to visit such so and so because he's sick. And the angel said to him, Have you got any business with him? Do you have any worldly benefit from Do you have? Does he owe you money? Do you? Is he famous? And this man said, No, nothing. I just want to visit him because of my love for Allah. Let's say for the sake

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

of Allah, an angel said to him, I am an angel from the heavens. Allah sent me to tell you directly, that Allah loves you because you love someone for the sake of Allah and you visiting him for the sake of Allah.

00:30:47--> 00:31:00

That when you visit a sick person, you will find Allah that Metaphorically speaking, that says, if you are visiting Allah, when you help, a needy person says, if you are helping Allah, metaphorically speaking, Allah says, if you're helping me, right?

00:31:02--> 00:31:05

It's, it's a merciful way that Allah is saying it to

00:31:06--> 00:31:40

brothers and sisters them. So there are a lot of people who saw it this way, it doesn't mean that they're prophets and messengers. Plus, if there were women, it wouldn't be appropriate, or would it be they can't deliver the mission, they have to be among the people that have to suffer the consequences. They have to be in secret and open with people we know that men and women, women, women can't mix in private and secret, obviously, there's sentry and the hijab and all that prevents them. So women can't do this mission of the man because of the circumstances, but they have other missions. Therefore, Allah did not send prophets as women at all but anyone who says this really

00:31:40--> 00:31:49

does not is not standing on strong the need or evidence no matter how smart they sound, there is no strong stance and there is a complete contradiction of this and Quran and Sunnah.

00:31:51--> 00:32:32

But rather the sisters or the prophets and messengers, humans like us. Yes, every single one of them, do they make human mistakes? Yes, but here's the thing, they are mass will mean muscle mean means that they have a stronger willpower, not to do the wrong in the message of Allah, they don't make mistakes. They never make mistakes in the conveying of the message of Allah, anything related to Allah's message, they are prevented, Allah has put has helped them protected and protected them from making mistakes in the message. Otherwise, if they make mistakes we do what they do make mistakes, these humans thinks they have feelings, they have sorrows, they can get, you know, sad and

00:32:32--> 00:33:09

angry that they can get all this stuff, right. They can go through that. Right? And so and this is and why why did they go through that to show us and to prove to us that? If Allah had since someone who was no human like you, then people would easily say, well, we can't be you know, we can't take them as role models because you know, this perfect but when human like in the Quran, Allah said that the Quraysh people said to the kuffaar crosetti Mohamed salah, why would we send or wouldn't God sent an angel as a prophet? Why did he choose a human like us? Who eats food, heck of a time when she can swell its food like us and walks in the markets like everyone else has got needs and desires

00:33:09--> 00:33:43

like us? You know, how is that Allah replied by saying if he had sent to you an angel, you would have said, well, they're angels. We kind of be like angels, though comparison. You would have to follow them. You wouldn't have listened to them. But he's a prophet human, like you said that you don't use excuses. They go through sicknesses like you look what they do. They go through problems, like you look at animals that are going through poverty, like you look what happened to them, they died. So don't worship him. Right? They're born like you and they have parents look how they treated their parents, and so on. They married look how they treated their wives

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

and their children. They were examples like us,

00:33:49--> 00:33:50

my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:33:52--> 00:33:59

Now, let's return to that position of the angels prostrating to

00:34:01--> 00:34:07

Allah said, what if Canadian male Africa does Judo the ultimate position who in law believes

00:34:09--> 00:34:30

was struck by what can I eliminate caffeine? Now the verses are really interesting, and quite strong and turquoise, let's go into Allah said, and when we all the angels, Prostrate yourselves before all of them fell prostrate. Except a bliss. He refused. And

00:34:32--> 00:34:45

he was glorious in his arrogance, and became one of the defines every word brothers and sisters Allah uses is has its place. Allah says that, except for a bliss, a bliss was not an angel.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

Allah says another verse inland at least I can energyne Except for at least what he was one of the genes by the way, he was not an angel man out of light. And what does this mean? Allah has to tell us that IBLEES

00:35:00--> 00:35:30

had free choice. He was not like the angels, the angels don't have free choice. They cannot disobey Allah and I can't even think about. Allah created the angels without free choice. But he created the genes and the humans with free choice, which means that if you, as a human Origen chose to obey Allah, you are of a higher rank than the angels, you can become that. And if you choose to disobey you become lower than the shaitan himself.

00:35:31--> 00:36:06

Allah said, Gentlemen and Jin, he had free choice like the gyms but you see, he was up there in a high rent with the angels. He became so amazing was a great believer, he had a great position. But he was still among the genes. So he made the choice not to obey Allah. Why Allah says why he says it's stuck about the only reason he didn't prostrate why's of this thing that I warn you about. It's called a stick bar. Kibriya. Kibriya means to see yourself above others for no real reason.

00:36:07--> 00:36:14

And to reject the truth, knowing that it's the truth, just because you're stubbornly

00:36:15--> 00:37:04

you think you are above everything above the truth as well. That's called Kibriya is thick bar, the word is vile Arabic means you are not created with that. You make yourself become that. So Allah says it stack bar, every verse in the Quran are talks about what at least refused, it says is that is the word is that what is exist in English is that by means you make yourself you take it from someone, you call or put an environment to yourself, you make it yours. So it's a decision. It's a choice, it's an action of your own. You he chose, and let himself made himself become full of pride and arrogance. That's all it is. This is the bar. Nobody has the reason nobody has any excuse to be

00:37:04--> 00:37:06

full of pride and arrogance.

00:37:07--> 00:37:11

What is pride and arrogance, to reject the truth, knowingly,

00:37:12--> 00:37:16

and to look down upon people that you're more superior?

00:37:17--> 00:37:22

That is just the point across I said, I've said nobody will enter Paradise, because keep it in your heart, because this

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

what can the mean of gasoline? He became one of those who are denying that they know and they know it hot. You know, I don't know how they did not Allah. He still believes in Allah, he still knows the power of Allah. But how do you deny them?

00:37:38--> 00:38:04

By refusing that Allah is above him in order, he made himself above the law in order. Why? Because he directly refused the laws on a face to face like like that sort of thing. I stopped all that Allah, I'm not saying Allah, Allah space, I'm saying directly before Allah, Allah gave nivara and he just returned the order of Allah directly back to you. This is Kibriya This is the most evil of evil. So he made himself above the law.

00:38:06--> 00:38:15

Because directly he refused directly directly with you. So get on him and advocate for you. By doing that with denial.

00:38:18--> 00:38:38

I was gonna die then said in another verse in sort of saga is called on who can immediately get in Neha, the conventional main thing, when your work said to the angels very I'm creating a bastion made out of clay, the word Bashar for those of you who are interested, and even he's also called Bashar Bashar and literally means in Arabic, and their body Bay.

00:38:39--> 00:38:52

Meaning, Allah says, I will create a body out of clay, and it will not be covered with feathers, or scales, or hair over. Why do you say that every other creation before the human being was covered with sun.

00:38:54--> 00:39:18

And recently, even in archaeologists re evaluating how dinosaurs looked, they now there's new evidence to suggest that they actually had food on their forehead. The genes have sales and things upon them, the angels are magnifying that have stuck upon them, the animals and creatures, but the human being was created bear just skin, a little bit of hair.

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

So what is the human being expected to do?

00:39:24--> 00:39:35

Expected to make the choice of covering themselves? How will they make that choice by an instinctive nature that you naturally feel shame? So you're

00:39:37--> 00:39:53

allowing it to show everyone the angels and the gyms that this human being is so special that look inside of them is this mechanism that makes him or her feel shame, and they will cover themselves? They don't need me to do it for him. And this is a value that is so honored,

00:39:54--> 00:39:57

actually, and the opposite of it is disappointing.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

For either some people

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

Wouldn't I have questioned him then? Bail guilty, but since you're going America to pull them as Muhammad, Allah says, Then the angels all of them, every single Angel frustrated to enter

00:40:13--> 00:40:21

some, the proceeds you will read will say that Allah chose specific angels and he left out other angels when he called the elites.

00:40:24--> 00:40:32

But that's not correct. Because Allah says this is America to all the angels, frustrated to

00:40:34--> 00:40:49

Elise, except for a visa stuck about our Caribbean cafe. He was full of crap crap prior and was probably unbelievers. So Allah subhanaw taala said, Call me at least, the Lord said, other bliss

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

minima Naka and this route?

00:40:53--> 00:40:56

What forced you to not prostrate?

00:40:58--> 00:41:03

Mike, was there someone who forced you not to prostrate? Did someone who can tell you

00:41:05--> 00:41:11

push your wedding? was I'm not saying it that way. Because at least can we foster it or not?

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

He can.

00:41:14--> 00:41:23

I'm asking you now a question. Can you pray? Can you pray? Can we pray? Do you have a reason not to pray? Can you get up from your bed a prayer?

00:41:25--> 00:41:35

Is anything that prevents you like Does anyone push you down? The bucket too heavy that puts you want a stranger can they come and get up? No, you can get up.

00:41:36--> 00:42:16

So, the first argument Yes, the reason you want to prostrate because I know you you can is if someone forced you not to. So what forced you? Now, obviously, this is a such as is putting him down and say get someone to force you not to? Obviously the answer is no. Or in another vessel was my Dallas's man Medaka. And last one says understood which means you can and but someone forced you not to. And the other one is moment I can lead. And that means something within you that convinced you were you convinced? So one of it is false. And the other one is when you can walk convinced you not to prostrating your

00:42:18--> 00:42:24

brothers and sisters when you when Allah wants you to do something as if and you don't do it. There are two reasons or no third reason.

00:42:25--> 00:43:03

If you say I can't, what do you mean, either you have a condition that forces you not to such as, for example, you're completely paralyzed your country. You're blind, paralyzed, and you've lost your mind. Then we can say this person can't pray. But we don't. So nothing's supposed to be there. But look at the second reason. It's something in your belief, or someone convinced you that you don't have to prove God doesn't deserve to be worshipped. Maybe that's what it is. If no one did that, and you do believe in Allah, then you have really have no excuse. And even the other words someone can miss is not excused. That's a

00:43:04--> 00:43:15

that's actually going to strengthen your Eman has gone, you believe is gone. So Allah said to me is that someone convinced you or something within you convince you not to? Or is someone force you not to?

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

Allah said,

00:43:20--> 00:43:21

a stack Berta

00:43:22--> 00:43:30

and quantum with an irony. So Allah doesn't want the answer. He's telling you, it's not this. It's not that. So I'm going to tell you,

00:43:31--> 00:43:32

let's talk about

00:43:33--> 00:43:41

have you now decided to fill yourself with pride and put them in an eyelid? Or have you now suddenly,

00:43:42--> 00:43:50

you suddenly think of yourself that you are among the elites, like you're above the angels in your like someone

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

almost like God, that you don't have to prosper.

00:43:59--> 00:44:08

So this goes to us as well, when you reject the truth, why? I use just pride and arrogance, or do you think that you are above it?

00:44:10--> 00:44:11

Neither of them is true.

00:44:12--> 00:44:17

And that is the trait of the shaper people who have the EMA and the trait of the shadow?

00:44:19--> 00:44:36

That's the baton put them in and it varies, which one at least requires a different answer because he knows that he's guilty. He knows that he is full of pride, he knows is not one of the superior. You will miss the knee injuries. You just have to deal with their ranking.

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

So why don't you frustrated as I ordered you?

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

And his reply was

00:44:45--> 00:44:50

Claude at a higher minimum, he said, I am better than him.

00:44:53--> 00:44:57

connected him in because he made me feel fine.

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

And he made him out

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

claim

00:45:04--> 00:45:06

just because of that, he thought he is No.

00:45:07--> 00:45:08

No.

00:45:10--> 00:45:23

So, in reality, the first racist ever to exist in the universe, from what we know, from the stories for at least the first races that we are told about, isn't it nice?

00:45:24--> 00:45:27

So anyone else who's racist, we followed

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

the soldiers of the police.

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

On what basis do you think your color is better than yours?

00:45:37--> 00:45:51

And same is what I've listed on profiles from clay. I love this color. He's from that color. I'm from this land they're from. I'm a man, she's a woman. I am this way that I'm an Arab and Turkish and then I would, I don't want to keep saying

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

it doesn't matter where you are.

00:45:57--> 00:46:38

No one has been of any other baseline. In Carmack, when de la hit that copy, if you really want to know who is better than the other. Allah is the one who tells us it was honored among you, to Allah, not to anyone else, are the ones who are most God fearing the most righteous. And even then, you can't say I am more Gods here. I am alright to say I pray all the time. I'm in the mosque. Where are you? Who will be here? I've never seen you there. Look, maybe it was your view, or my future uses disgusting. We don't talk like that. Because Allah says in the Quran, that that was a full circle. It stops it from that Timmy says, Don't ever don't ever, don't ever give yourself merit of quiet.

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

It's only a one of you knows who's more. But here.

00:46:43--> 00:47:15

There is a price he says that you are so pious. Allah is the One who knows who is more pious. And again, I'm gonna stop you there for a second brothers and sisters. Let's say you're not practicing. You can't use that quote in the other way around as well. So yeah, I don't do drugs. I take alcohol. But who are you to judge me? God knows, I might be more God fearing than you. You're right. God fearing person. Yes. Only Allah knows. But at the same time, brothers and sisters, a God fearing person does the right thing too.

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

Isn't it right? Imagine you're married.

00:47:21--> 00:47:34

Some of you are married. And I'm telling you to imagine it. Because the beauty of as long as the date is when he said, Wow. You know, I'm just joking with those of you who are not married. And those of you who are.

00:47:35--> 00:47:44

Imagine that in your marriage of someone that you love says to you in the morning and in the night when you wake up when you go to sleep I love I love I love you. I love your

00:47:45--> 00:47:49

roses. I love you gets a skyscraper as much as I love you.

00:47:51--> 00:48:03

But they never show anything that shows their love. They don't give commitment. They don't give any sacrifices that look at your needs. Communications poor.

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

You can see it right. You're not going to leave that person.

00:48:09--> 00:48:15

So that's the point my brother and sisters, you believe in another condition story? Yes, it starts inside.

00:48:16--> 00:48:30

And it's completed on the outside. And Allah says when he vessel taco, taco on the inside is the best thing. And on the outside. Allah says there's also the best there's also duck on the outside and inside.

00:48:35--> 00:48:58

Allah did not allow the bliss after that answer he gave he didn't want to he said, forget it. He said, Alright, get out of it. Get out of it. No, you're an outcast, get out of what get out of your income position that I gave you. You are not allowed to be in here because you no longer are fitting for this, you no longer qualify. You can't be here. This is only the spiritual preview especially in

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

what

00:49:02--> 00:49:09

I normally do and you will have my curse upon you till the day there is no yoga Dean means

00:49:10--> 00:49:17

either. It means the last hour after that there is no more repentance. Last thing in the world is

00:49:20--> 00:49:21

you're an outcast.

00:49:22--> 00:49:28

So we said, My Lord, then grant me respond to the day that they are raised up.

00:49:29--> 00:49:52

Allah says, you will have my cursor upon you till the Dean till the last hour. So he said, Oh, well let me stay alive until you raise them on the Day of Judgment. Allah says all the funding that come in and move money, okay, I'm going to, I'm going to I'm going to keep you alive. In another verse, Allah says, I will keep you alive until the world ends. Not until they are resurrected. You're gonna die with everyone else. Okay?

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

At least change his tone. He says Robbie, when I look when he said I'm better than him and all that stuff I love

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

So get out got angry at him and bliss. He said,

00:50:06--> 00:50:12

Oh my God, He reduced himself. Now he said, My Lord, while

00:50:14--> 00:50:25

we say it's a second second. So he said, Oh Allah just stated that we say you set up some. So you say, Oh, my God, he wants something

00:50:27--> 00:50:32

we say to our children when they say, it said they've been rude to you, and then suddenly they just changed their tone.

00:50:34--> 00:50:35

Baba, Abby,

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

I love you. What's your response? What do you want?

00:50:40--> 00:50:45

What do you want this time? Sometimes? So at least he reduced himself a little bit.

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

Let me live until the end of time.

00:50:49--> 00:51:03

No, no, I was mostly there's not rejected, right? It's done sincerely, at this point, at least is sincerely asking God, he calls upon him with his role. And subhanAllah even while he's angry at companies and he is cursed, Allah still accepts his daughter.

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

Right? If you call upon Allah only and sincerely, Allah responds to you.

00:51:14--> 00:51:31

But I didn't regret his stance, because he couldn't overcome his pride and his jealousy. That's it. Some people Subhanallah they develop arrogance and pride in themselves and jealousy to the point they can't overcome it anymore. And I feel sorry for these people because they do themselves.

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

How interesting is that?

00:51:35--> 00:51:39

For the police to become an everlasting Catholic. It all started from one thing

00:51:40--> 00:51:41

who knows what it is

00:51:42--> 00:51:43

jealousy.

00:51:45--> 00:51:49

That was also a lot of a sudden I've said here and one has said beware of this false jealousy.

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

We are common hustle

00:51:54--> 00:51:58

in a hustler yet according has an article called narrow hopper.

00:51:59--> 00:52:05

He says for jealousy eats away your good deeds just what five eighths away would

00:52:07--> 00:52:17

win you win jealous too much all you could think to become like vengeance showing off. Because it's jealousy competition among the dog from

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:52:21--> 00:52:24

In the conversation keeps going to debate

00:52:25--> 00:52:37

and Allah subhanho wa Taala starts telling you get out get out you will no longer in if you are cursed. So at least then turns around when Allah says to him, Okay, I will leave I'll keep you alive. How much time you have

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

three minutes, two minutes.

00:52:43--> 00:52:50

It at least now realizes that Hamas that's it is outcasted. God has cursed him.

00:52:51--> 00:53:01

He gets so angry. Allah has accepted his daughter got what he wants. This is this is the example of a person who was so vengeful with an evil are evil human beings become like that.

00:53:03--> 00:53:35

Right? Some people don't to take revenge. They do something wrong. And instead of blaming themselves and trying to work on themselves and developing themselves and learning from the mistakes and admitting their faults and growing and leaving the wrong behind. What do they do, some of them resort to blaming others for their own faults, and these people or systems will never be happy in life. Never the always argument always debate the oldest trust issues that always had anyone always be paranoid. They'll always be fighting

00:53:37--> 00:53:44

anything like that, you know, you lose your job because of something you've done, you lose a relationship, you go into a divorce,

00:53:45--> 00:54:07

whatever it is, right, a partnership, business partnership, whatever it could be your fault. If a person's full of arrogance and playfulness and jealousy and competition, all that stuff, they start to blame us when you when you meet someone like that, just keep falling with them and avoid them at any cost to be on hold until they can come to terms with themselves. These are unhappy miserable people and very negative and toxic.

00:54:09--> 00:54:14

So at least what did he do? He actually looks and he says are eight other medical

00:54:18--> 00:54:19

aid that can

00:54:20--> 00:54:24

arrive that care in Arabic Israel Standard Arabic You can say

00:54:25--> 00:54:26

that cat,

00:54:27--> 00:54:36

one is no and the other one is rude and obnoxious and disrespectful. He said to Allah.

00:54:38--> 00:54:42

He said, Look here that

00:54:43--> 00:54:44

care,

00:54:45--> 00:54:49

care, care. Means look here, look, here you

00:54:50--> 00:54:57

are iteca Hara. See this? This perfect beam has meaning.

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

Now he hates

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

And now he's blaming Allah. See this fools brush day that you made better than me. See how you God

00:55:11--> 00:55:26

had led me astray, is blaming his failure on Allah is blaming his failure on Allah. It's like a student it never studies has been warned me told me the exams come because of all the guidance. And then when the exam time comes, they fail and they go,

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

you made me fail.

00:55:29--> 00:55:42

You gave me an F, we talked about the teacher just looked at your marks, you didn't study it. It's your fault. I'm just objectively just neutral. Now you may require what you have to give me the exam. If you didn't give me the example with everyone stupid.

00:55:44--> 00:55:51

So at least to see how we're gonna dismantle this person above me. Yeah, you well, you know what I'm gonna do?

00:55:53--> 00:55:54

Then you can

00:55:56--> 00:55:57

I'm going to appoint,

00:55:59--> 00:56:10

approve, because when you take a tree out of the ground, it never grows. The tree grows high. It's beautiful. The human being Allah has made it beautiful. It says I'm going to cut their roof so they're not I

00:56:12--> 00:56:15

think you can never really uproot all children.

00:56:18--> 00:56:22

In other words, that was we ended up measuring nine, I'm going to dilute them all.

00:56:25--> 00:56:26

The status.

00:56:28--> 00:56:32

Yeah, except your citizens, except yourself. CSAs.

00:56:34--> 00:56:43

Wireless and CSA because at least notice I currently, Allah says, Yeah, go ahead. Is Stephens is Minnesota, Minnesota solid. You go ahead.

00:56:44--> 00:57:15

Try to control the workhorse establish this is a word used in Arabic for when somebody uses reins of a horse to steer the horse. So he's saying to you, yeah, go ahead. I'll let you climb right on top of him and steer him like a horse, if you can. Minister thought I mean, this whole thing. Only with your visitors. You can't have power. You don't get to control them like physically, but only resulting with your business. What is missing, it's everything that you hear or listen to, that leads you away from it.

00:57:16--> 00:57:22

You can put all that in a package. We all know what that is. And the bliss was able to do that.

00:57:24--> 00:57:26

Allah says in imedi

00:57:27--> 00:57:56

in a baddie, as for lie worshipers when you have a yet at the end of a bad D sometimes presses a baddie, just very quickly sometimes really bad idea, he means my true wishes, a bear the winds, just my slides, but people I create a better deal with my true worshipers, later Seneca and even so, you will have no power. Why? Why?

00:57:58--> 00:58:05

Because they will not serve you and your call, they will always serve my call and they will take you as

00:58:06--> 00:58:10

you will not be able to dilute the people who are my true wishes.

00:58:12--> 00:58:23

My brothers and sisters Muhammad at the time has arrived. So insha Allah will stop here and next week inshallah we'll talk about what happens next, after this great debate.

00:58:24--> 00:58:25

And also Allah
