published at Southern University, Emily Wagoner, Dr. Melissa Lee of Gobble, Cody, my brothers and sisters in a senate Marnie Kumar has a lot he or better counsel.
We left off yesterday and we said that we would explain the murder right so what I did matter, and I said that we would go over verses 112 and 118 of selection method before we continue our Hannukah or before we get into tonight's topic tonight, they will be reciting in taraweeh from verse number one to 165 the entire sorta and Okay, so on.
And so before we get into sort of a home I wanted to go over the last few verses of sort of EDA, and explain what exactly is taking place there. So in verse number 112, have sought after Mati de la semana, what Allah says
is bonden howery una every Southern mo Mahalia study area, Holly SW euro Hagia Sophia buka
Carla Docomo in Tacoma
meanie in. So in verse number 112, the
disciples of every Saturday to set up right this goes back to the story of Jesus Prophet Jesus, his disciples, the people that he had close to them, his students, right his students. And he said he has set them he was asked by them. And they said to you know, to Teresa, can you ask your Lord to bring down for us a spread a, you know, a beautiful meal, at least a beer or a book and a unit and units in it. And
this is where you get lost in the verses that resemble each other. And your brain is telling you one thing and your eyes are telling you another so I'm looking at the verse and I'm thinking of another verse. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here that the disciples of Jesus eSATA as they asked him is your Lord capable of bringing us down food, a nice platter a nice dish a nice, you know, meal for us to enjoy. But this is a food that comes from the summer from the heavens that's divine that comes from Allah somehow or whatever. And he reminds them he says fear Allah if you should be believers, if you believe in Allah Subhana Allah then you definitely know that he can provide this
for you. And it's not something that is impossible. Nothing is impossible for Allah subhana wa tada
so they say to me, Sally has said that we wish to eat from it and let our hearts be content and be reassured and know that you have been truthfully given you know, this this status as as a prophet and you know Allah subhana wa tada has given you that,
you know, that sort of status. And so he sadly his setup he calls out to a boss who kind of went to heaven bottari seven ammonium along mob bene
takuna Rita Leah Juanita, Feeny No, Tim
was in the in. So he says he Saturday has set up the son of Mary. He says Oh Allah our Lord. Send down to us a table full of food right from the sky from the heavens. Let it be something that is as you know, festive for us so we can enjoy we will enjoy this food
for the first of us and for the last of us basically all of us and it will be also for the howdy Yun for the disciples a sign from you because they're looking for a sign they want to sign from Allah subhana wa Jalla this will be a sign from Allah subhana wa Adana for them. And evisa Allah has set up and says and provide for us and you are the best of providers. So Allah subhana wa Jalla then calls out to Isa, he says automobil in mnemonic Xena honey comb. He says I will surely send down to you this you know food that you request from me. However,
anyone who disbelieves after I send
This food down, then indeed will punish them with a punishment that no one had ever received before this, this will be a punishment for them as you know what it wasn't kind of without a means here is that he's, he's going to allow them to receive this food and the food will come to them from Allah subhanho wa Taala but anyone who disbelieves after seeing the food come to them and they will receive a punishment from amongst the the disciples.
And then you know the story goes on as it is.
Allah subhana wa tada calls out to him and says, did you say to the people that you should take me and my mother, as you know deity is to be worshipped other than Allah subhana wa Tada. And the story goes on. We'll talk about the story of a Saturday set up as as time goes on throughout the month and Shabaab dad. But we see here that the sewer, EDA is talking about the food, the spread that came down from a loss of haddaway talent to ERISA, a seller and his disciples. And that was a food that was, you know, sent from a loss of habitat. In other words from amongst the disciples of Isa Hassan, who disbelieved
who disbelieved afterwards, as in they didn't disbelieve immediately from seeing the food, but they went against a siding Center, which one of the disciples Do we know his name?
Join us join us was one of the disciples a very Saturday, the center who went against Him and who basically went, the people who wanted to stop the followers of Isa, the people at the time, who wanted to start very sadly, his setup and his followers, they were planning to, to to basically kill him. And so they wanted to find a Saturday and send them and so Jonas went and said, I will go into the home where we gather and see if he's there, and I will come out and let you know, if he's there. And so he goes in, and he sees that he is not there. He's not there. But as he comes out, he exits the home. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran that he made Jonas look like he sat at his
center. He says 101 is on Well, I can should be held on and so it was made to seem as though they killed or they were capturing every Saturday is set up and hanging him. But they did not do that. They didn't crucify any Saturday has set up. They actually ended up you know, doing that to Jonas because Allah subhana wa Adana swapped the appearance of Jonas and made him appear as though he was a Saturday his setup, but he wasn't there a loss of haddaway data had already taken him up so he had already returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We move on to the next solar solar.
We will cover the entire solar in Charlottetown at the beginning of solar, Mombasa says
Alhamdulillah nadie Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa t well Alibaba Jalisco nomads, you know, from en la Vina Cabo de
on, Mama goofy Selma to fetal urine MC Akuma. Cebu, Allah subhanho wa Taala begins the surah identifying to us His praise that we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala he knows the knowledge of the unseen he knows how to who was Allah, how we were created, and he identifies to us our creation. So Allah subhanho wa Taala begins the swab and hamdulillah and hamdulillah in and lezzy chronica somehow it went out. So he begins with praise identifying to us that even Allah subhana wa Adana, praises or shows us the importance to praise him the importance of praising Him as our Creator in verse number four to 11 of soda to Allah subhanho wa Taala shows how the idol worshippers if they
were even to give, if Allah subhana wa tada was to give them a sign from amongst the signs that they choose. Whatever they choose, you want us to take this rock and Allah subhana wa tada will turn this this rock into a big camel. Which story was that? Which prophet? You should know this? Which prophets of Allah subhana wa Tada.
People said take this big stone and turn this stone into a camel as your Lord asked a lot to turn this stone into a camel. Which story is it?
One of the prophets Allah Subhana lights had
none of us no homework.
Homework, this is your homework for tomorrow. Okay? You need to tell me which profit or loss of Hannah Woods Anna was asked by his people to take the stone they identified a stone a big boulder in front of them and said, Ask your Lord to turn this stone into a camel and Allah subhanho wa Taala turned it into a big, nice, beautiful chic camel that was even pregnant. It was pregnant at the time ready to deliver. And so that is one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala his story, I want you to identify which one of the prophets it was and let us know tomorrow in sha Allah Tada. Okay, so Allah subhanho wa Taala in these verses, he says,
you know, he goes on to him, and it means to be human lokhandwala Marlene, and no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, except they turn away from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even if Allah was to send to them, or to any of the non believing people assign that they want. So for example, you know, someone says, I want this microphone to turn into, I don't know, whatever, beautiful car Ferrari, right, ask a lot to make it turn into a Ferrari. Can Allah subhanho wa Taala make this turn into a Ferrari? Yeah, of course. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us though, that even if in this role, he tells us even if he was to give the people who don't believe signs that
they want, they still wouldn't believe. And this surah goes through a number of different verses, where a loss of handling data identifies belief, and what it means to believe in a loss of power without as we'll see as we go along, and how the non believers were given signs and the different profits or loss of power with analysts different prophets, and some of their destruction and how still the people didn't believe even after sending them the signs that they want it in verse number 19, Allah subhana wa tada shows us that he is the greatest and the greatest witness for us. So if we were to testify, we testify
to a loss of cannibal
will I use a in accubond Lucia
benei obey you know, what? He
so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, say good eye, you say in Shahada
what is better for us or what is greater what is the greatest thing that we should testify upon? Of course, we testify by Allah subhanho attack, and he's the best witness, he knows every single thing that we do, whether it is known publicly, openly and what we can see. Like right now, at this very moment, someone might be thinking something inside of themselves. They're thinking in their mind, they're feeling in their heart. Who knows? Anyone sitting here? No one knows. We don't know. I have no idea what you're thinking some people might be staring at the clock and counting every single second as it ticks down to nine o'clock and so they can have their if thought others might be, you
know, simply staring at at nothing or staring at me, and just, you know, imagining the foods other people might be thinking of their day and how difficult it was myself. I was reading the verses and I was just like, Subhanallah It's been a long day. And this is why I stopped and I said Are we gonna be living in a Shabbat? negligee? Shabbat is coming and whispering to us. We're reciting the Quran and we're thinking of our day. Right? So all of us are thinking different things going through different things, experiencing different things. But Allah subhana wa tada knows those things. He knows our secrets. We are usually in a cupboard which I hadn't fully learned, and I must have it and
it goes on in the verse.
As he mentions, to tell us and we should say we should testify. Gorilla should when someone asks us to testify other than a loss of habitat.
Or to take an oath by something other than a law? Swear Pinkie swear, right? Remember when we were small people say okay, Pinky swear, you guys used to do that? No, not at your time. Your time. Not at your time. My time. Yeah, your time handler the someone is around the same age as me, right? Pinky swear, people used to do that kids in school with Pinky swear, right? No, we don't swear by your pinky. And we don't take an oath by anything. And or, you know, sometimes, people swear by their parents. You know, I swear by the you know the life of my mother, or swear upon my mother or my father. No, you don't do that. We don't swear by anyone or anything except the loss of Hannah
Montana. Willa, shad will in Isla and we're in. We're in anybody who mementos recon. I only take an oath with a loss of Hannah with Alan and testify that he is the only one worthy of worship and there is none besides Allah subhanho wa Taala had
in verse number 27 to 32 very, very interesting how Allah subhanho wa Taala here, you know shows us the non believers will wish to return to the earth so that they can fulfill the commander of a muscle count with Anna when they see Jana. What
is more before I
can nibble for
who can leave me to be you know in a
meanie. And if we could see
when we are made to stand before the Hellfire, right if we could see the people who were standing in front of john, how they would wish to return and they would call out to a loss of handle what's football do? Yeah, laietana know what I do when I look at the event? The a to rabina when akuna mean meaning so they would stand before the fire and say oh how we wish that we could return to this world? Why? So that we can do some good deeds, do something good believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala but what does Allah Subhana which is a bell?
Can we your phone
Tony man one one
on but what they can see you before has now appeared to them. They now realize they believe they disbelieved. they disbelieved, but now that they witness, john them, they want to go back and change that. But it is apparent in them that I lived my life as a disbeliever as they stand in front of jahannam. Right. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and even if they were returned, if Allah was to send them back to Earth, if that happened, it wouldn't happen. It's not going to happen. But Allah Subhana Allah says, if they were to be returned, they would return to what they were previously upon.
And indeed, they are liars, they still wouldn't believe they only say that they would believe in a lot because they're standing in front of Johanna. And that's a really interesting lesson for us. Because, you know, sometimes in our life, we say, you know what, I'm going to change a person and I know very well I, you know, handle Allah Subhana. Allah has allowed me to interact with many different people at different times in their life. And I remember a time where I was interacting with someone who was in the hospital. And he was saying, you know, if Allah allows me to leave, I'm going to change my life.
And Allah Subhana, Allah granted him the cure, and he left the hospital. And he went back to the exact same lifestyle that he used to that nothing changed. It was exactly the same. And we know probably ourselves in our lives, there may have been times where we ourselves did that as well. Now, maybe we changed Alhamdulillah. But maybe immediately after that moment, we said we or we claimed that we would change but we didn't. Or we know someone who is in that situation and claim that they would change himself if they're given health, but they don't. And that's simply to prove to us how weak we really are. This is the month of Ramadan. And this is the month where we know very well
shaitan Neverland says shavon is shackled up Yeah, the month of Ramadan, and everyone's excited. They're full of energy. This is the month where we're going to do a lot of goodness and a lot of crate, etc. But Subhanallah we find that sometimes we still commit the same sins that we did before Ramadan even began last week. Remember last week, I, you know, encouraged us the weekend is ahead of us and when I'm alone had not begun yet. It was it was beginning on Sunday nights, right because we started print out all we on Sunday night. And they said to us this weekend, plan, prepare yourself. Get ready for the month of Ramadan. Get your clothing ready.
read, write, prepare yourself in advance so that when the month of Ramadan begins, you don't waste your time doing other things, and prepare yourself mentally as well. And emotionally and spiritually, the month is going to begin. Now that five days, we're completing our fifth night. This is our sixth, sorry, our fifth day, and we're going to begin our sixth night of Ramadan. Now that five days of fasting is almost over. And the sixth night is about to begin. How have I changed from last Friday night? When it was not when I'm alone? Or two Fridays ago? Or a month ago? Or two months ago? Have I changed in any way shape or form? What's different in me now that five days have passed?
And as I was fasting, throughout these days of fasting, these five days of fasting, what's different in me? Am I still cheating? Am I still lying? Am I still you know, making up stories? Am I still exaggerating things that are happening around me in life? Am I still, you know, swearing and saying bad words? Am I backbiting others? Am I going to places that I shouldn't go to? Am I hanging out with people that I shouldn't be hanging around? All of these things, we need to ask ourselves five days of Ramadan are gone, am I going to change. And so Allah kind of gives us this example, that the people who lived as non believers in this life, they would stand before our last panel with Allah in
front of Jana. Right? On the day, the world also kind of went out of places, though in front of gentlemen about to enter it and wish and call out, had a you know, known I would have lived a different life, as in the loss of handling data return us so that we can do something different, but they would not do anything different. Now, some people might say, well, that's not fair. That's not fair. Why doesn't allow, let them come back and show them and, you know, let them prove to him that they would change. Allah knows, we just finished identifying that Alan knows the secrets that we can seal. And therefore, a person that might say, you know what, maybe that person will come back and
actually change themselves know, Allah knows that they live their life a certain way. And they chose to reject Islam upon them. They chose to reject worshipping Allah subhana wa attallah as the one and only true God to be worshipped. And that even if you return them, they would return to nothing more than simply gaining money and wealth and living the life that they currently live. And that is the plan of Allah subhana wa attallah, to prove to us that we have the choice, you can choose to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. You can choose to disbelief, that's your choice. And you're given that choice. No one is forcing us to be here right now.
Maybe some of our youth their parents came and they said, No, you don't have a choice, you have to come. But no one is forcing us to be here. Like we can leave even the youth that are with us, they can stand up and go outside and play and chill and go and do whatever they want. And you know, maybe call up a relative Can I come to your house today and just Joe has a thought at your home instead of having a thought here at the masjid. But we chose to be here. Similarly, some people who may
or could have been here, I should say, could have been here. They may want to be here, but they didn't choose to actively come.
They're just chilling out wherever they are, right? And we're not saying that they're doing anything bad or wrong. But they're they didn't choose to be here with us right now. They chose to be where they are. They might want to nice Allah, you know, I want to go there. But what did you do? What did you plan? How did you prepare to get there, and if you absolutely couldn't hold us that's different. That's a different story. So unless somehow it's and it gives us the option to choose in life. And that is something that we were blessed with? No, or none of the other creation of a loss of data is given the option to choose not just us as something that we get. So choose wisely is what a lesson
how to water Allah is teaching us here.
Why don't we talk about his will before I'll be him, call la Sahar. That'll be in verse number 30. If they send when they were to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He will say, Is this not the truth? They will say yes, this is the truth called Bella. What I've been
through will either be male quantum tech full on it. Now they're standing in front of a loss of data, those who disbelieve and the law says now that you see me right you can now actually see a loss of data as in you. You don't physically see him because we know we only see him agenda. But you see that the truth of those who called you towards Islam towards the oneness of Allah Subhana which Allah they told you that you would live a day to stand before a loss of habitat. You will come to stand before Him there will be an earth here after
Where you will have to testify for everything that you did in life. And so here Allah subhanho wa Taala show us, showing us what else Allah is only for Allah be him. Now they're standing before a loss of habitat and he asks them, is this not the truth? Say, yeah, we know we understand now this is the truth. Call us. It's over though. When you have your soul, right? When the trumpet is blown, everything is done with now we're actually standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, For those who will be back quantum telephone now tastes the punishment of what you used to disbelief. You disbelieved. You didn't follow you were ignorant to it. You chose that path for yourself. Now
that you understand this the truth, good. But you could have chosen that during this life. And we leave that to Allah subhana wa Taala those who choose to disbelief in verse number 46
verse number 46
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, are eaten in Africa but with some American what other satakam Well, Hunter Mariela, Gulu become men Isla Bahia de combi. Allah subhanho wa Taala asks a simple question. He simplifies our belief in him and our need for a less accountable dad. He says, well, in America, if Allah subhanho wa Taala, was to take away your hearing, and he was to take away your site will have done or Allah lubicon and he was to, you know, take away your your heart doesn't seal your heart, who would help you? Who would help us? And I think I asked you this question a few weeks ago, or maybe a month or two ago, if we lost our hearing, would we still believe in Allah subhana wa,
Tada. ask yourself that question. Well, I still believe in Allah.
How many here say we would still believe
okay, but what if you were born without the ability to hear?
Or you were born, and you could hear, but after a year, it was taken away from you? Would we still believe? Imagine as we're sitting here, learning and listening to the verses of the Quran, you're standing in sada you're praying Tada, we, but you can't hear anything. It's like
nothing, you don't hear anything. Nothing. You're standing in the email Miss calling the event you don't know when it's time for if all you only know because everyone is picking up a date and they're eating now. Okay, it's time for a thought because everyone is eating. You can't hear anything. You can't hear the beautiful verses of the Quran. You can't hear. You know, when people talk about the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. You can't hear the stories of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You can't hear about the prophets of the past. Would we still believe?
Some of us will say yes, we'll still believe why because we can read. But what if you couldn't hear and you couldn't see.
You couldn't see. So you can't hear? And you can't see. You close your eyes, you close your ears. How would life be if that was our day and our night? Imagine? Just close your eyes right now. And imagine if you couldn't hear anything, and you couldn't see anything? Would you still believe? Honestly, many people might say, Yeah, I would still believe because now we believe. But imagine if you were born, someone who could not hear and someone who could not see or five years, six years, 10 years into your life, the hearing that you had in the site that you have no longer exists.
And then your parents tell you they yell at you. They scream they take us you know microphone and they yell as loud as they can to tell you believe believe believe you can't believe because you can't hear them.
But we still believe and the question a las panatela poses to us is not would we still believe this? Who's going to come to your help at that point in time? Who will help you? Who will help you in that situation? Now some people might say, Oh, you know what, as a doctor, we could have you know, a cochlear implant, put into the head and then you know, have this thing going into your ear humbler, you'll be able to hear things. Yeah. But who gave us the ability to do that. And not everyone has that option. Not everyone has the option to have a cochlear implant and then listen and hear. Right. I have a niece who actually has, you know, had that procedure done to her. She was born and she
couldn't hear. And then humbler her hearing was, you know, very, very slight. And so the doctor said, we can actually try this and see if she'll be able to hear and that hamdulillah they did it and it you know, it worked. And over the years she started to learn, you know some of the sounds and she would pronounce things weird.
It's strange, but then, you know, as she grew older, she could develop the sounds and so on. And the handler now she, you know, speaks properly. How do they know? But not everyone has that option, those whose eyesight is missing?
And people will say, Oh, you know, we could put a little camera. Yes, you could put a camera and you can attach it to the brain. But is it going to be the same? Like everyone is buying the iPads and saying I want the iPad that has Retina Display? Can we actually read invent Retina display for our blind? alumnos on the nose? And is it the same? No, it isn't. It's not the same. Life is not the same. For example, someone who wears a hearing aid at night, they take it out and they sleep a deep sleep. Right? My wife's father, he's, you know, elderly, and he has hearing aids and my wife says when he goes to sleep, he sleeps the best in the house. He takes all those hearing aids, he doesn't
hear anything sleeps, nice to wake up, you have to come in, you have to you know, wake him up, or an extremely loud alarm clock right next to his pillow. Right and he might tear it. And so sapan Allah, when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us eyesight, it gives us hearing, he gives us a heart to believe in reason in our brain to understand if that was to take it away to be taken away, who can give it back to us? none but Allah subhana wa Tada. Now,
even when we lose something that is not us, let's say you lose a child
who can give you back happiness? Who is the owner of happiness, a parent who loses a child becomes extremely sad.
extremely sad. They they feel as though it's not right. It's not fair. Why is it that this child of mine left before me? I'm older than the child? How can the child leave? It's not fair. People say that it's not fair. They come in, they ask a question, how is it fair? How did Allah do something that was just by taking my child away from me when my child is younger than me, I'm older. justice means take away the older person because the older person should leave before the younger one, don't. The owner of happiness can place happiness and contentment back into our hearts, if we choose to allow it to enter. And so a loss of habitat is our Creator. And he creates what we see and
creates what we don't see. Like we said the other day, our heart is inside of us beating and pumping, pumping the blood through our body. Do we ever think, you know randomly in the day that the blood is pumping through us? No, we don't take a moment to stop. It's a kind of law, the blood is rushing through my fingers. And I can feel I can feel it. You know, the other day I went to the doctor and I was telling him I have this pain in my lower back that goes all the way down to my toes. And so he tells me close my eyes. I took off my socks, he says sit down close your eyes. So I'm sitting there and he takes this little thing It looks like you know, a bristle from a you know
from a paintbrush, for example. A little bristle. Okay. And he's poking my feet to different places. poking my toes. I do feel there's a few handler like a few it Alhamdulillah I can still feel it. Imagine through the skin.
He takes this little thing like this, right? Like this, this little little thing. Exactly like this. And he's poking my foot with it just just tapping it lightly.
Do you feel it? Yeah, I feel it. I haven't been in that the brain registers that you're feeling this on your toe. You're feeling it on your foot, you're feeling it underneath your foot and have the nap. That's a blessing. Imagine you woke up in the morning and you go to make Lulu at father's time. So good. We're all zombies, right? You wake up at home after sleeping one hour after you get home or let me take an hour nap. You wake up. You go to the bathroom, you open the water. And imagine you put your hands under the water. You're like, you're half asleep. You don't know what you're doing. But you lost your sense of touch. You couldn't feel imagine. And the water is burning your hands.
But you don't know that it's burning your hands because you're half asleep and you're like, Oh, I need to eat some food. Right? You're half asleep. You don't know what you're doing. But the water is burning your hands and you didn't realize that in the night you lost the ability to feel.
Who puts that in us. Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is what he was teaching us in the salon, highlighting his power and his creation, how He created us and how we need to believe in the things that we see. And we don't see things that we don't see. But we feel for example, I could feel on my toes. I could feel you know, the pain in my back. I could feel that I'm hungry, I could feel that I'm thirsty. But at times throughout our day, sometimes we don't stop to think and ponder over the things that are lost somewhat and have blessed us with in verse number 46.
Last, sorry, we mentioned that when we move on to verse number 59
First number 59
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Why do you
feel badly one back?
wanna bet you feel vumat in Adobe wanna
be seen in fee kita Ruby in Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that he knows everything. He says here we're in the home authority Hello valuable layer level,
he has the key to the knowledge of the unseen the knowledge of that which we can't even understand. Right? The knowledge of the unseen, none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in this seat. So for example, what's traveling on the land? Sometimes you you know, actually, I don't want to use that example right now. We'll speak about it as the verse goes on. But what's traveling on the land? Sometimes you're just sitting there and you see something in front of you. That's a little spider. So how about where did this spider come from? Five seconds ago, we didn't even think of the spider. Now it's right in front of us. Where did this spider come from? What was
it doing today? Where did it get it? It's breakfast. What did it eat? Did it make a web or not? What is this spider up to throughout the day, Allah knows we never even stopped to think of it. But we see the spider. And Allah knows everything to do with it. Simple example. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says he knows what's in the sea.
Now you watch these documentaries, and they go to the depths of the sea or the ocean. And they record beautiful things, and strange things, things that you know, look like this. They're walking on the bottom of the sea bed. Really, really strange. But that's a creation of awesome handle. Without it, we never even knew it existed. But for hundreds 1000s of years, it was under the water and living. And Allah subhanho wa Taala created it and put it there for what reason Allah knows, maybe those little insects and parasites, you know, we know that. What do we call it the cycle of life. So one little insect is eaten by a bigger insect which is eaten by you know, let's say a bird
and then the bird is eaten by something else. And then you know, a bigger animal eats a bigger animal and eats a bigger animal. Like the whale, it's a smaller fish that eats a smaller fish that eats a smaller fish. I'm not knows what it's there for. Maybe if we lose that small little insect at the bottom of the sea, we might lose an entire species of fish. Only Allah knows, and what that animal does during the day, and during the nights when it's pitch dark. And we can't even see at the depths of the ocean. But we bring the light down to shine so we can record what's there. Allah knows what that animal has seen. We see it and it looks like you know, black and white, and gray, you
know, different shades. Nothing very colorful, in different parts of the world you go and it's extremely, extremely colorful, beautiful colors that we never even imagined existed at the bottom of the ocean. And it looks like some of these fish sometimes have spotlights in front of them. How is it that this light is shining out of it? Like its belly has a spotlight in it? How is that happening? That's from Allah subhana wa Tada. He knows what's happening at the depths of the ocean as well.
And then Allah subhana wa Jalla says, not only falls, but that he knows of it. Imagine right now. Maybe not only a leaf, and maybe a hair from my head just fell to the ground. But Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, I didn't know. But your wife knows because she looks around the sink and she says, Hey, you trim your mustache all these hairs fell to the ground. Why didn't you pick them up? I didn't see them. I didn't see this. Right? You trim your mustache, you know? It's dramatic, right? So you trim your mustache and then your wife complains to you right? Just what is all this hair around the sink? I didn't see any hair. What hair are you talking about? And she goes and she gets a you know a
tissue and wipes around the counter and says here, look at all these little hairs that you trimmed. Oh, I didn't notice I just rinsed out the sink. So panela Allah knows all those little bits of hairs that are falling. He knows every single leaf that's on the tree. And he knows when one falls and he controls the colors of the leaves on the trees as well. And not a single leaf is the same as another leaf, the different color, the different size, the different shape, they differ in, you know, in different types, different species of trees, Panama, I remember I was in Vancouver and one of the one of the members he came to see me from BC from British Columbia and he came to see me in
Vancouver and he took me up to the mountains and we went to see some of the trees of Hannover, some of them are like 500 600 700 years old. 700 year old tree, massive tree look up at the sky.
And you see nothing but the tree and the clouds. Beautiful. The creation of a loss of Conway's ad. We were not living our grandparents. We're not living our great grandparents. We're not living our great great, great, great grandparents, we're not living but that tree was there.
And a law was taking care of the tree. He was making the rainfall and the water go into the ground, and it's absorbed into the roots and it goes up the trunk, and it goes out the branches to the leaves and Subhanallah who's creating that and who's controlling it, a loss of Hanna what he then says, and no grain is there within the darkness of the earth. So you put a seed in the bottom of the you know, you dig a hole, you put a seed inside you cover it up with some dirt, you have no power over it, but Allah controls it and then you see the little sprout coming out of the ground. Who's doing that unless the panelists and it's dark under there, the worms are not making the sprouts come
out. It's not the worms it's not the insects under the ground. It's Allah subhanho wa tada not Mother Nature, right? And then Allah subhana wa tada says, No moist or dry thing but that it is written in a clear record as an Allah subhanho wa Taala controls everything let's dry what's noise, do you know the fruits and vegetables and so on everything is controlled by a loss of handle what to add.
We move on to verse number 74 to 76 we're not going to recite these here Allah subhana wa tada is talking about the different prophets. He begins with Prophet Ibrahim Ali has set up
and he shows us how Ibrahim alayhis salam advises his father. Right? he advises his father and he says in the in the araca.
Movie, what did you say maybe?
Earlier, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that Ibrahim Allah has sent him he asked his father, you follow these these idols as gods and his father as he is the one who's actually carving the stone. People would bring boulders, rocks to the father of Ibrahim, Allah has sent them and he would carve them into the idle and outside of his home, outside of his workshop, Ibrahim alayhis salaam when he was a child, he used to sit and play on those stones and boulders. And now he's asking his father, you think these these idols that you worship like you taking this is a god? How you know, it's just a stone, you're the you're the I know, maker, you're the one that carves these idols out of stone,
you know that this is not going to do anything for you. It's not going to provide you anything. In verse number 7677 78, Ibrahim alayhis salaam shows us. He sees the star. And he says, How be this must be my Lord. And then the star goes away. Why? Because maybe the sun rises or changes different time of the night, the star goes away. He says, No, this can't be my Lord. Then he sees the moon. And he says how the RB This is this has to be my Lord. This is bigger than the star. This is beautiful. Look at it. It's the moon. And then it goes away. No, this can't be my Lord. Then he sees the sun. He says, Don't be happy about this must be my Lord. This is bigger. It's the biggest right?
Look at it. It's the sun and the sun. It's hot. It provides heat during the day, we feel comfortable when the heat comes out. So Pamela, then the sun goes away and the night comes back. This can't be my Lord. And he's saying that to show the people don't believe in these stars and the sun and the moon as your Lord, their creation of a loss of habitat a he is greater than these items that he created. So the whole Sula is identifying, you know the greatness of a loss of animal which it goes on to talk about some of the profits or loss of animal which are either in verses 95 to 99.
a loss of Hamlet and it shows us to recognize the signs of a loss of animal welfare and in number 30 will be with Noah, in the next verse fairly equal is a loss of Hannah Montana is indeed the cleaver of the grain and the date seed, you put the grain in the ground who cracks the grain open, none of us can even hold it, we try and hold it with with four fingers, try and take a little seed and hold it and try and crack it. It's difficult. Sometimes we need to take it and crush it with our nail or put it down and just you know squish it with something take a knife and press on it. Right squish it. And that's how we open it up. But Allah subhanho wa Taala he commands the seed when it's ready,
open up and then the sprout grows out of it. We don't do that. That's the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala he's the cleaver of the daybreak and made the night for rest and the sun and the moon for calculation. So he placed the sun in the moon there and we use the sun and moon to calculate before we had our watches now we have beautiful watches that tell us not only the time, but it tells me you know my email is here Mashallah. And then I have I have telegram and then I have
What's up and I have econo Milton mustard telling me there's 20 minutes until Monday, which was, you know, an old message and Subhanallah so many different things come to me on my watch. But Allah subhanho wa Taala created the sun and the moon, and they revolve, right, we have the night and we have the date and we see the sundials that people used to use in the past and they would use that to calculate the sundial to calculate what time is it? It's almost time for fr Mashallah, why how do we know the shadow is there and then at night we see the moon come out, okay, and the beautiful You know, colors that you'll see on this side of the mustard after motive after you finish eating go
outside and see the beautiful colors in the sky. observe it understand that that those colors and the sky and how it's dark over there, but it's still light on this side is because of loss of panels to animate the sunset here, and it already got dark on the other side. And over here The sun is still going down. So we're seeing some lights. And where is that sun right now? You know some How about the other day I was in Australia in Perth, and it was watching the sunrise in Perth, beautiful sunrise. And I was telling I was on this iPad with my children. And they were saying I'm at the you know, it's almost lovely time it's on and we're gonna go inside soon. They were playing outside in
the backyard handlebar and it's sunlight here in Mississauga, Oakville. And the sun is rising over there. And then a few minutes later, they're like, you know, a moment of time and the sun is going down. It's beautiful sunset. I said yeah, I'm watching the beautiful sunrise over here. beautiful, amazing. Amazing, the sun is on the other side of the world. But we can see the light here and someone in Australia can see the sun as well. How does that happen? And is the power of a loss of power all the time. And he gave it to us to calculate because people will say no, it's a simple calculation is the distance and this and that and the scientist Yeah, we agree with you. Although
it's telling us he gave it to us to calculate that's why it's there. So we use it to calculate day and night etc.
Then in verse number 108, of Sula to land around
a loss of kind of what Allah teaches us a lesson. What does one DNA under one m you do only
Meanwhile, EDR in Allah subhana wa tada shows us how it is prohibited that a suit will Latina and the ruin of Indonesian law. Do not
what's the word I'm looking for? insult Do not insult the gods that other people worship even though we know we believe this is not a true God's people worship idols, statues, walls, animals, rats, you know cows, snakes, etc. People worship different things that disability in a their own and in doing the law Don't insult the things that other people worship.
Why? Unless pamphlets and it tells us by a so called law, one behind why because they would insult or they might insult along in enmity without knowledge. They might do that without knowledge. They might say oh, you make fun of my gods. Well, your God is like this and your God is like that. And this is why I always discourage those who want to debate with others. They want to debate religion. Be careful.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, why Gianni been lazy? He said if you're going to debate with someone, debate with them in what is best in what is better, use goodness use kindness speak to them nicely, Do not insult other people do not you know tell them Oh your book is like this and your book is like that, we have examples of people who are good at this idea that for example, today we have the you know the modern data from India who is he? Dr.
Zakir Naik? Mashallah, you know, they're they're good at this. There's many others. Trust me. There's many others is one really, really good brother who, you know, some kind of I know very well in Malaysia. You know, absolutely amazing. He accepted Islam. And he went in he studied and learned with Dr. Zakir Naik, and came back to Malaysia and he does his own studies research. And when he debates with people he doesn't debate to try and prove them wrong by insulting them or their book.
We debate with so nicely proving to people this is the truth showing them the truth. When you try to debate with others by putting down or defaming what they believe in, you only create more hatred inside of them for you and what you believe in. But when you show them what you're believing in is wrong. Why? Because my
Book our book, The Quran tells us this and tells us that and you recite the verses to them. Wow, they want to listen to it. Yeah, this is something I need to hear. You know Subhana Allah try it. Sometimes we all have our own applications and recitation on our phones. When you're speaking to someone who's non Muslim, tell them randomly. There are people who did I remember seeing YouTube videos A while back about this. Just show them a clip an audio clip, let them listen to the recitation of the Quran, but your favorite reciter and then listen to it just 30 seconds here. Listen, this is this is our core and it's being recited we don't read it. As in you just pick up a
book and read it. We recite it, we read it with a tone. And we recite the Quran so let them listen to it when they listen to it. Oh, socata law. You see their hearts melt. They just what is being said, they have no idea. They don't speak Arabic. They don't understand a word of Arabic. But they just listening. What is this thing? It's so beautiful. I like it. It's not like music. Music is like dada, dada. And it gets you all motivated and does you know strange things to you. But somehow this is soothing. This is calming, but it's motivating in a spiritual sense. I want to become closer to this. What is it? I need to know. So Pamela, they come closer to the Koran. And so Allah subhanho wa
Taala prohibits us from insulting the false gods that the others believe in and follow.
We move on, I know we have three minutes left, we move on to verse number 125.
Allah subhana wa tada here says, and we reiterate what we discussed earlier. And I know there's a lot of people here that were not here earlier. So I'm going to say this. We started out about an hour before bucketed, for those that wants to join us, those that are here that might not be able to make it every single day. We have the YouTube channel, I believe is being recorded, right? Is it being recorded? Or is it always Yeah, it's being recorded and uploaded on mustonen finance YouTube channel. But I'm also doing the live streaming. You see people are watching here. They're doing a live streaming on Facebook on my Facebook account, so people can watch around the world. And so
hamdulillah we have currently currently logged in right now watching 64 viewers on how to do that, right. And the other nights we got about 160,000 views. Mashallah, that's amazing coming from your budget. And so those that are here, we started an hour before monthly, but for the sisters, we usually encourage them to turn the lights on. So they're not sitting in darkness, they're sitting in some lights have no water coming down on them. And we also have a little partition put up here, because we make this announcement usually when the families are not here yet. So for the sisters who come to the halakha, they can come out the door, there's a white door on their left side when
they're facing the Qibla. They can come out and there's a partition there for them so that they can sit and you know, feel as though they're still part of the halaqa while still having a little bit of a barrier between them. And you know, they can see and feel as though they're parts of the of the gathering. So I have one minute left, I will mention one thing, verse number 125. Like I said, I will reiterate what we discussed earlier also kind of Medina says,
For me odd love who
do we have I saw The Goonies moody is
Allah Subhana which Allah says And whoever wants
to be guided by Allah subhanho wa Taala whoever wants guidance, then you will get guidance, Allah Subhana which Allah will give you guidance, if that is what you want. If that is what you seek, seek to be guided and you will be guided, but the person does who does not want to be guided, you could read through the rest of the verse on your own. Allah subhanho wa Taala gives them the opportunity to live their life and have many chances to want guidance to be guided but if they choose no guidance for them, then they will not be guided they choose to not be guided they make that choice as we discussed earlier, and I will end here and they will begin tomorrow with the with verse number
160. And for those that are not here 160 teaches us how our good deeds can go the distance so for those that want to know it, you need to come early tomorrow inshallah This is a teaser for you. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make it easy for us to understand these verses. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to forgive us and forgive the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us the ability to increase our taqwa even throughout this month of Ramadan. And we asked Allah Subhana Allah to accept our fastest and to forgive us throughout this month, and to help all those that are suffering and struggling in different parts of the world. And
being out of beta alanine, which is aka level five and the more subtle level some of them are about a candidate Vietnam headline and your psyche was sending, take advantage of drop, it's Friday and we are fasting okay to get that to drop.
I'll give you a little tour of the mustard since we're still broadcasting
these, these are our youth Mashallah hamdulillah and this is our if thought that it's taking place
so this is the brother side and the sisters have if thought as well
on the sister side of the muster them handed in law and in fact, all of the thought every single Ramadan every single night is organized mainly in primarily by one sister. She is the head of the thought. And so some kind of law this is you know, blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala and she's actually a single mother her husband had passed away a few years ago, during the winter and we asked a loss of Hannah boy to add it to have mercy upon every single one of us take advantage of making. This is the last moments on Friday, Santa Monica
