00:00:38--> 00:00:55

allows for 100 essays, a verse which I've often quoted, seminary him at Nashville alpha Murphy and fusi him had HIV and hepatitis A and Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah says, We will show them are signs

00:00:56--> 00:01:38

fill in the furthest regions of the universe. Wolfie unfussy him and within themselves, hacked is Debian alone, until it will become crystal clear to them crystal clear like they like and I will have that this for an is the truth from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And only when we realize that this Quran is the truth from our last panatela when we progress as a community and as a nation and as an omen. The reason we are not progressing as a community no as a nation no as an oma, because we have not yet realized the truth of the Quran.

00:01:39--> 00:01:47

We speak about the Quran as being the truth. But we have not realized the truth of this holy book the Quran of allows Karnataka

00:01:50--> 00:01:54

one of the reasons I think, is because we live in a highly

00:01:55--> 00:02:02

technical world, a world that is filled with technology. We have cell phones, we have satellites with spacecraft.

00:02:04--> 00:02:24

We have so many things. And we feel that religion in general will be Christianity or Judaism, Judaism or Islam. There seems to be a big gap between what is happening in the world today and what the Quran says. Or the scripture says or what religion says. So there seems to be a disjunct

00:02:26--> 00:02:31

between Allah, His revelation and technology.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

But he's really so

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

is that really sir?

00:02:37--> 00:02:47

As Allah had nothing to do with a cell phone is Allah got nothing to do with the spacecraft? As Allah has found a really good nothing to do with NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space

00:02:49--> 00:03:03

aviation, whatever they call it of America, those people who send people into space, send them send spacecraft into Mars has really got nothing to do with this. Is that something else? And what we believe is something else without being something and that is something else.

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

Oh, it's all not to be found this? Is NASA guided by Allah

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

or not? Is NASA guided by the Quran? Yes or no?

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

Because if we can find a link

00:03:17--> 00:03:41

between modern technology in the Quran, certainly and surely the Quran must be the word of Allah. It must be the truth of Allah. And if it is the truth from Allah, then there's a piano. And if it's a piano, there is a Jana and if it's a Genesis Jana and if that is really the truth, it means that we are answerable for everything that we do on this day. This is not the end.

00:03:42--> 00:04:02

That is not the end, if we really realize that truly faithfully, we will become much better human beings, first of all, and much better Muslims. Why is it that we have a reputation of being rude? Muslims have a reputation of being some of the rudest people on the surface of the earth.

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

That we sway when we like.

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

We like to use rude language, we would like to raise our voices shout at each other. Hey,

00:04:12--> 00:04:55

this is us. Listen to us. When we leave the Juma listen to us. Listen, I mean, we should be ashamed of ourselves absolutely ashamed. We have nothing of Mohammed Salah lorrison we don't understand the Quran. And we have nothing. Nothing, none of these habits, none of his humanity and none of his knowledge that he had. And we have no inclination at all to know this. This is my summing up of where I stand and where this community's we all are at this point in time. This is who we are. We carry on day by day. We slide along we go with the flow and then we die. And we think nothing's gonna happen after that with a big fire. We have seven nights, three nights, 14 nights and see

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

Mashallah. Everything is fine. Is it really fine because

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

If it's really fine, it means there's no Allah dystopia because the way we live, we look at our lives, the way we live, there is no other way we let these escape. People catch each other. They commit Zina, they commit fraud, they steal from each other. And when they do these things, they become the best people in the community.

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

And those who are good people become the worst people in the community. And this is one of the signs of Tiana

00:05:32--> 00:05:37

if you ask her the math of it, but I just I feel today, I'm in a good mood.

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

That's part of my good mood.

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

If you ask a doctoral student, that is doing his doctoral studies at university,

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

why is why is the doctorate or doctoral studies so important?

00:05:54--> 00:06:26

Because the first thing they tell you, when you do your doctoral studies is this they say for you to have a doctorate in the subject or specialization or field in which you study you must add new knowledge to knowledge. Otherwise, that knowledge must be non existent. What do you gain to add to knowledge should not have been done by anybody before you? So what people do is psychologists and all these people they do surveys survey, you can't repeat because you do it on different people, people translate.

00:06:30--> 00:06:54

What do you call it manuscripts, handwritten manuscripts have not been translated from one language to another language and so forth and so on. And so I believe that the Juma should have the same objective. A Juma should add new knowledge to people's knowledge. If a Juma cannot add new knowledge in the Juma person has failed in his duty towards his congregation.

00:06:56--> 00:07:08

We are not parents we don't repeat week after week. Of course, when it comes to our last panel, Darla Anto heed and silver the song Yes, we have to remind each other, but there's a vast

00:07:09--> 00:07:53

universe of knowledge that we also need to share with each other. And the sharing of that knowledge, I believe, strengthens our Eman and our Taekwondo laws. Because only then do we realize the greatness of Allah and the greatness of the Quran. And the fact that Akira is the truth and will happen and will come to pass. And you will have to be prepared for that. And there's gonna be no excuses on the desk to Allah is gonna say to you, I said Mohammed salam to you. I sent the Quran to you, I reminded you about learning our humanity about knowledge, you ignored me. You ignored me. You ignored me for 40 years 50 or 60 or 70 years, and you died a GI Hill.

00:07:54--> 00:08:00

You died an ignorant person, despite the fact that he was surrounded by knowledge. Despite that,

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

what are we going to say to our lows,

00:08:04--> 00:08:09

when the highest form of very bad is to know

00:08:10--> 00:08:25

the highest form of very bad is to know the first word that Allah gave to him metal alaris along with Accra notes Allah, Allah didn't say, Mohammed, Salah Allah didn't say, you must give Zakat Allah didn't say you must go for Hajj.

00:08:28--> 00:08:55

Allah, Allah say to in one word, the first word, and that word you have to live on and chew on for 13 years. One word, to chew on that one word for 13 years. There wasn't Book Two and Book Three and book four. And stage one No, no, that was it. 13 years there to chew on that in it to give it over to the people of Makkah in the people in you that this is the foundation of Islam, the foundation of Islam is to know and those who don't know will not go to general

00:08:57--> 00:09:04

Sorry, I'm not a law but if Allah is put on conditions for entry into general then we can just repeat those conditions.

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

So Allah subhanaw taala has given us technology and Revelation.

00:09:15--> 00:09:25

You've got the cell phone, called the microphone. Good all kinds of phones. Allah says revelation and revelation is our phone connection with our last panel Tom.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

You don't have to dial 91909 What's it

00:09:33--> 00:09:42

911 to get to those walls are you ever a built in for iron which gives you a direct line to Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

we live in this universe. We live in this world this dunya

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

Do you feel anything as you're sitting there is a movement in the masjid. Is the earth moving under you?

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

I asked the question. Have you ever thought is the new

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

Do you know that you're traveling at 66,000 miles per hour?

00:10:06--> 00:10:24

You know that as we sit here as I'm standing here, this earth that we all traveled at 66,000 miles per hour is not an accident. So if you drive in your car and just one wheel is unbalanced front wheel of course, you can feel the whole car will shake isn't it? You got a tire that's maybe a little bit flat.

00:10:25--> 00:10:41

But allows drivers created this dinner perfect foodies do this for food indicators dunia traveling at 66,000 miles per hour. As as I'm talking to you, around the sun in an orbit at an angle of 23 and a half degrees.

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

at an angle we've tried to make the world make just a nice round world.

00:10:48--> 00:11:01

nice and flat. Allah tilted the world to the three and a half degrees so that we may have four seasons in the air. Without without four seasons will die. There'll be no crops and stuff that we see in the rains that come on come.

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

So

00:11:05--> 00:11:10

when last did we did I as a Muslim look into the sky at night?

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

This is this question.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

I think many of us live like cows.

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

We only look at the grass every single day.

00:11:24--> 00:11:32

That's our object. We only will never live like a cow never lives is a to the sky. There are some of us who never lived out.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

We don't see the glory of our laws.

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

And the two times that you can live Lift your head to the sky that you really see some you see the patterns that are created

00:11:48--> 00:11:52

at night after I die and in the morning before fashion.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

And I always thought to myself, why isn't it than me? So sanlam tells us

00:11:58--> 00:12:02

and he shows us his baby so Salamis to get up early in the morning for fudger.

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

And what was the first thing he did? Do you think?

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

He can take Hulu or make Salah or make tahajjud Salah

00:12:20--> 00:12:26

to go outside from his house, look up in the sky and read

00:12:27--> 00:12:31

in a free healthy sama bottle of Castilla la li

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

la de la escuela de la la pm and Rocco de noir Alhaji Ruby where the fuck Karuna

00:12:43--> 00:12:49

Raja Namaste halaqa has about Oh, am I doing cray cray the same way. So panaca brought me to you

00:12:50--> 00:13:06

kinaba Allah save us from the fire. You know, when I used to do this using I'm doing it mechanically I get up in the morning I stand on the stoop, look up in the sky, look at the stars and I read the I have the run and I concentrate on what do I think I concentrate on my reward?

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

I do it because I won the award from last

00:13:12--> 00:13:52

until I asked myself the question, but why did we have to read the verse? And why is the verse the verse is quite not a long verse, but you have to stay long, and look at the sky for quite a while before you finish the verse and just perfectly just go out and look at the sky and then went back inside to read the verse. In other words, the province of Solomon was telling us that we should look at the sky purposefully. That is not about reading the verse of the Quran that says you know, that in the creation of the heavens and the earth and alternation of the night and day and all that, that Allah Allah talks about, that is the reason you should look up. But it's about turning our vision

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

away from the earth to the universe

00:13:57--> 00:14:08

and to inspire us to try and find out what do we see what are the patterns that we see in the morning sky or in the night sky? And why is that so important for us? I think that I mean do that.

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

I mean, I would have thought a lot of city Bahasa let me get up in the morning you take what do you go to the masjid you make the Hajj Salah or Salah to lay? That's what you do until your feet swell and then you make fun you go sleep.

00:14:25--> 00:14:40

But the ikura was the every action of a Muslim everything he does contain the Quran. Every, every every time he follows the example of Muhammad Salam he is making this call, he's reading, reading the sky reading,

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

reading the Quran, reading his Salah. So his whole life, in fact is a life of recitation and the life of really

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

if we look at the first injunction in the Quran, the first instruction which Allah gives to mankind

00:15:01--> 00:15:13

In surah, Al Baqarah and Allah Allah, this is this verse not to Muslims, Allah graces the verses the whole of humanity. Allah says, yeah you are nice. All Mankind Oh humanity. Abu Dora Baku,

00:15:14--> 00:15:26

first, worship your Lord, worship your Lord. That's the first item on the agenda. Allah Dena holla calm Valentina mean publikum la la quinta

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

who created you,

00:15:31--> 00:15:43

and created those before you, in order that you may ward off the evil from your own souls, in order that you may open your eyes to the world which allows for having created

00:15:45--> 00:16:19

an alarm clock that says, I love you john Allah, Allah thirassia Allah promises and the earth He created the earth for you as a big garage is a bit creative for you the the the that's a quick way for us to Adam, about his videos MIT Ross Geraci by Ben, Allah created as a baby. And the manifesto didn't arise. He says that a bit. When it's too soft, it's uncomfortable. When it's too hard, it's uncomfortable. And sometimes the baby itself becomes uncomfortable.

00:16:20--> 00:16:28

Some people like to sleep on the floor, they can't sleep on a mattress, even odd exhausts off the teeth, that they sleep on the floor because they've had a bad back.

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

So but I love how this created this notion of rock

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

or stone, made of sand.

00:16:40--> 00:17:10

It's a mixture of rockiness and softness. And when you're gonna make the earth of sand, I mean today, people are still experimenting as to what kind of flow we should put in the house. And the latest is that we make towels that is soft. You look at it, it looks like a tire. But when you open it, it's soft. A lot sounds great if you walk on the seas and you can feel the softness, Allah created this. So handle this kind of luxury, allows for handler given to us.

00:17:11--> 00:17:18

So allows for handler given to us this earth and as repose as a place of rest

00:17:20--> 00:17:26

is a nice place to be. And the Quran says and allows for handlers given as a canopy.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

The sky is a canopy.

00:17:31--> 00:17:44

Sakaba mahfouda not just the canopy, a protected canopy canopy that protects us. Do you know the sun, the sun is 92 million miles away is that 92 million miles

00:17:45--> 00:17:50

93 million Sorry, I was 1 million out. But the sun is 93 million miles from us.

00:17:53--> 00:17:59

Which in my mind is so far away, although we can feel the effects of it, especially when you go to the Middle East.

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

And that gives us plays

00:18:07--> 00:18:17

it's like a like a burner you know like these things that they burn the tower with keys or plays, Master plays, but allows you to have those created

00:18:19--> 00:18:36

belts around the earth that prevents those flames from burning the earth and from DaVinci gas. And under so called Valhalla no Van Alen Van Allen belts, belts of atmospheres between us in the sun that prevents those flames from from destroying the earth.

00:18:40--> 00:18:51

This is what our Lord has given to us. This is always given to us. The Earth has a bed, and the sky is a protected canopy. And alcohol has given us

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

access to understand the truth.

00:18:58--> 00:19:01

No matter who you are, no matter what standard you passed.

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

We always want to know what is the truth about anything.

00:19:10--> 00:19:48

And nowadays, we want to know the truth of what Zuma did, isn't it? We want to know did he ever a bad relationship or a corrupt relationship with the guptas this is on people's minds is what people want to know. Everybody wants to know. The E FF also wants to know of course, everybody wants to know. So this is what people want to know what is the truth? And we know the rest until we know what the truth is you may wait for it. But that is in the nature of man. Man wants to know the truth of things. And ultimately when we have a query or a question we always say to people, okay, now what is the truth?

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Your lawyer will say to you, okay, that is what you told me but what is the truth? So psychologists will say to you okay, that's what you told me but what is the truth? I can't help

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

Unless you tell me what the truth is, and so a lot further also can help us. And the Quran can help us at least we are seekers of the truth.

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

And allow us to put this, this thirst for the truth in our hearts search for the truth. Even the Greek philosopher Aristotle, he said, All men wish to know

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

all men wish to them.

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

And is this desire of to to have knowledge.

00:20:31--> 00:20:39

That was the first revelation, which allows for our intellect put into the heart of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

And Allah has given to us these are the fruits of that revelation.

00:20:47--> 00:20:58

But Allah, so Allah, Allah says, so don't give a rival to Allah don't give a party to unlock, don't turn away from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:59--> 00:21:13

And allowed to Allah says, We're unto Tyler moon, when you know that it is a law that created the heavens in the earth. So after the first command in the Quran, which was Dora, Allah turns our attention to what

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

to the heavens in the earth.

00:21:17--> 00:21:20

And we human kind

00:21:22--> 00:21:26

is the interface or the Interstate, between heaven and earth.

00:21:28--> 00:21:38

We have been placed here to represent something great. And that is the word of Allah. When understeer,

00:21:39--> 00:22:04

Allah protects us from the sun and made the earth a bed for us and made a canopy. He made us comfortable so that we can search for the truth. So it shows so that we can worship it. All this is not for nothing that we traveling at 66 million, or 66,000 kilometers, miles per hour on the sun and we don't feel it. It's not for nothing. This is all here to bring man to Allah was pinata.

00:22:07--> 00:22:17

So the immediate and most important thing that we should realize is why are we here? And what what is the sky above us? And what is below us? And you have a very short time to do this.

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

In the akhira, Allah will ask us

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

how long do you think you spent on the dunya?

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

Who asked Allah to fight Muhammad? Ali on the dunya?

00:22:34--> 00:22:44

And what will the answer? What is the answer Allah gives in the Quran, we will say to Allah, you're a Yeoman, oh, bother you a day or maybe less than a day.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

In other words,

00:22:48--> 00:23:01

the accumulated minutes and hours and days and years that you spent in this dunya when we come to all of the other, you know, short is just a day, or even less than a day, a few moments consumption.

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

Will buffer

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

like the wink of an eye,

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

our life and we think wow, you know, we've got tomorrow, I'm only 50 You know, I'm gonna die when I'm 70 I work out you know, I'm 30 I'm 25 why even people like that 70 thing, maybe another 20 years left. But all those years, even if it's 90 years, it's a day or less than a day.

00:23:29--> 00:23:37

So Allah has given everyone One day, the proper that one day, in terms of this verse of the Quran, I shared one day.

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

If I was earlier one day, I'm sure fair one day

00:23:42--> 00:23:52

all the great people of the world at one day. And all these great people had their day in the spring data. But how do we compare our day to their days?

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

And what is going to be what are we going to do about the day which allows for hunt Allah has given to us when we rise up to the greatness of Islam

00:24:03--> 00:24:17

or become as philosophically in the lowest of the low will we attach and cling to this dunya and the dunya. The word dunya comes from Donna which means that lowest donate which is very low, both physically and spiritually.

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

Although we elevate ourselves to the status above that of angels,

00:24:27--> 00:24:42

above that of angels, because that is where we can reach while carving out the rahasya and Tammy who allows founder then turns our attention to the mountains and allows fatherless says I've placed on the earth mountains.

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

So the earth might not shake under you

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

by the mountains. And the scholars tell us that these mountains doesn't only refer to physical mountains not only for to Table Mountain or Mount Everest. These mountains also refer to the scholars that Allah

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

Send to the world

00:25:02--> 00:25:14

and these callers just like the mountains keeper steady these callers keep a steady on the path to our last great man like a mama Shafi you know people say today who was among sherfield who was a Mambo hanifa who was

00:25:16--> 00:25:46

who are these people who must go back to the center, you know, they call themselves a Salafist, we must only go do what the Sahaba did, we should only do what Mohammed Salah is done. This is total ignorance. People who speak like that have no knowledge about Islam. They have no knowledge about Deen. They have no knowledge zero. They've never taught in a class. They've never learned that enough allows punter to debunk and trivialize these great scholars is a great crime that people commit in the world today. Why?

00:25:48--> 00:25:57

Because people say I'm sure we use these opinion and bonafide uses opinion and they have differences. And so we are divided stuff Wilma.

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

October,

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

these great savons

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

they will not only

00:26:07--> 00:26:07

professors,

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

they were the friends of Allah.

00:26:12--> 00:26:15

If we talk about only Allah, these were the only avelox

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

and what was the mission?

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

Did they go out there to divide us their mission was to seek for the people to know

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

that was a mission.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

And they wrote down what they thought to be the sooner Mohammed Salah Larsson as they got it from those before them, the web and the Sahaba Allah him of salatu wa sallam.

00:26:40--> 00:26:58

So these colons then it was their duty and they did a good job by keeping us away from Bedard deviation, corruption in the dean. There are volumes and volumes of book on character and so many other sciences. Then Allah says Allah placed on the earth on hora rivers

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

anyway to the rivers come from

00:27:03--> 00:27:24

where do the waters of the rivers come from? The waters of rivers run from the mountains from the Ravasi come from the mountains. And these rivers are not just rivers of water, but also rivers of knowledge that flow from the mountains from the scholars will last hundreds place in the earth as mountains and guides for us.

00:27:25--> 00:27:36

They guide us to know whether we are rightly guided not with our GPS is working but with our heart is working for a loss. Then instructional allows harnesses

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

and allows to place mountains and always places rivers and outlets play signs. Alana

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

will be pleased to say to allama hackery Allah, Allah,

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

Allah God sign

00:27:52--> 00:27:56

will be Najib Mumia do and allow sunglasses

00:27:57--> 00:28:00

and by the stars they will guide it

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

by the stars they will guard

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

and Allah says we're not Jimmy either Our Allah sways

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

by the stars. Why not this way by the stars, there's just some

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

Figment in the firmament, some great irrelevance this way by all the stars.

00:28:21--> 00:28:28

The stars, this is symbolic understanding to star and the Quran as its as its

00:28:31--> 00:28:43

outward meaning. And the Quran also has symbolism symbolizes when Allah speaks about stars the law speaks about mountains or rivers. It also symbolizes anything symbolizes knowledge scholars interpret and so on.

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

So I like this, I swear by this stuff.

00:28:47--> 00:28:58

I make a note by this stuff. And then of course the rune people interpreted the book of Allah subhanaw taala. They say that the star which Allah talks about is none other than Mohamed Salah lorrison

00:28:59--> 00:29:04

one legendary that will hold the slaves by Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was

00:29:07--> 00:29:20

not the cause of our children after the football stars in the film stars. No, he was the stuff he was the ninjam he was the nasm of the Quraysh of the Banu Hashim. He was a thoughtful amine

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

Subhanallah

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

and 1000s of years before him a man by the name of Buddha

00:29:30--> 00:29:34

wrote in his book, the following words,

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

Buddha said how do I praise

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

the one who is praised

00:29:42--> 00:29:46

that even the creator of the world's praises

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

Thomas Cleary

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

wrote and translated,

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

translated the work of Buddha and wrote a commentary on his work. Save

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

That

00:30:03--> 00:30:05

this phrase one refers to Mohammed Salah lawlessly.

00:30:06--> 00:30:35

Muslim His name is Thomas. He says what Buddha referred to was the last messenger that all lights into the earth and God sent to the earth. Mohamed Salah he was the praised one. So the praise one, the Praiseworthy one that Buddha referred to as Mohammed Salah Lhasa. This is not new for us, it shouldn't surprise you or surprise me, because the Bible speaks about Mohammed, the Torah speaks about Mohammed, all the prophets that came to pass talks about Mohammed Salah. And even among the, what we termed the non Muslim

00:30:37--> 00:30:41

great once in Sundance also refers to Mohammed sallallahu wasallam.

00:30:42--> 00:30:54

So Mohammed Salah was this guy, he was the hub, the hub of existence, the actual, nothing can turn the wheel content without the axle. Does anyone actually get stuck the wheel content

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

and the earth

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

is the hub.

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

And the Earth turns around the sun and I said, the Earth turns around the sun at 66,000 miles per hour as resetting is moving.

00:31:10--> 00:31:17

And at 23 and a half degrees at a slight slant in Allah has done this all for me and for you. All those beauties for me and for you.

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

So that we might live on a planet and worship Allah.

00:31:23--> 00:31:29

Allah so Allah says will be nudging it will be nudge me whom you have to do, and by the star

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

they will be guided.

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

And when we look at this

00:31:38--> 00:31:41

favor next time we look up in the morning before 500 after Asia

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

and I always thought to myself that

00:31:47--> 00:31:57

astrology was just assigned to you know people you read about newspapers, you know, you go to Virgo or Pisces or whatever and Sagittarius channel and that is probably the beginning and the end of it we know about stars.

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

But the Allah says and allow saundra says la Kasumi Bobby malarkey and

00:32:06--> 00:32:16

Allah says I swear by the position of the stars, Allah says first I swear by the thought, I swear by the position of the stars. And the Allah tells us

00:32:18--> 00:32:23

that the the stars the constellation, the word for constellation in Arabic is Torah.

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

And the word

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

for the chapters of the Quran is also called, also called so all

00:32:33--> 00:32:37

it means is there's the constellations of the skies.

00:32:39--> 00:32:49

In measurable uncountable, so the meaning of the Quran is like the constellations in the sky, the meaning is uncountable the depth we will never know

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

just like there is a yacht in the earth Allah talks about

00:32:58--> 00:33:08

the mountains is an area the season a you and me I yet and when I'll let the first verse of the Quran What does he refer to it as? And yet, also I

00:33:10--> 00:33:14

and the honor my child has it the ayah to the universe interpreted the ayat of the Quran.

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

So the sewer in the in the skies, the constellations tells us about the depth of the meaning we will find in the forum.

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

You know, I want to actually come to the point of the football

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

according to the US

00:33:38--> 00:33:41

There we go. ational Guide. You know, pilots have a navigational guide,

00:33:43--> 00:33:48

people who travel over the sea ever navigational guide, they use different instruments, but as navigational guide

00:33:50--> 00:33:56

these navigational guides guide the ship not to get lost, guide the airplanes not to get lost.

00:33:59--> 00:34:11

And these navigational guides consist of 51 stars for the Americas on top 51 stars. These thoughts guide the pilot and the captain of a ship

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

to his destination.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

If you should ask a pilot,

00:34:22--> 00:34:28

if all is you know you've seen I'm sure everybody has seen all those lights in a cockpit. That

00:34:30--> 00:34:33

it's a baffling ray of light screen blower.

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

If you should ask a pilot if all those lights go off.

00:34:40--> 00:34:43

Before if you ask him if all the lights go off, what are you going to do?

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

He will give you an answer.

00:34:48--> 00:34:52

This is how they're trained. You will say to you if all these lights go off.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

We have the stars because you turn on all these lights go off into totally dark

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

The sky lights up.

00:35:03--> 00:35:10

And he says there is nothing wrong with this plane I'll be able to land them in exactly where it is by the stars guiding me nuts about last Friday.

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

Now

00:35:16--> 00:35:21

there are two important stars, the biggest stars in in our heaven in our Milky Way.

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

And our Milky Way

00:35:27--> 00:35:31

has got 3 billion 300 billion stars. Paloma

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

Can you imagine? alongside that created our Milky Way this small little Earth?

00:35:43--> 00:35:46

our Milky Way has got 300 billion stars.

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

So there is the North Star which is the biggest one in the northern we have the southern star called the canopus

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

kotoba shimira suitable job in

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

the Northern Star in the southern star.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

And what many people don't know

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

is that in naboth, Raja lotrel

00:36:14--> 00:36:18

with President Obama tololo cinemavilla bus he told us

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

that the cannabis or the southern seven star the Kaaba is aligned with the southern star.

00:36:30--> 00:36:34

It is the southern star at allies a land with a GABA

00:36:35--> 00:36:39

that determines moon, time and moon rise time.

00:36:41--> 00:36:48

So we think you know, the Quran, just say to the Narcissus Allah, you should fast when you see when you can distinguish the gray

00:36:50--> 00:36:52

the black from the white

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

but was in fact, a very scientific statement solemate which is back from what there was an alignment.

00:37:02--> 00:37:09

There was a line you could draw straight from the Kaaba to the southern and of course today we can taste that. And those canopus

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

star

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

do is the Kaaba is aligned.

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

It's also in the Arabic it's called Suhail.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

Kind of pasta. This kind of a star is 313 light years away from us.

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

Now a light year is

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

a year.

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

A light year is the distance light travels in one year.

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

At 365,000 miles per second.

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

Light travels at

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

about

00:37:52--> 00:37:57

1007 60,000 kilometers or miles per second.

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

That light even traveled to one year.

00:38:02--> 00:38:07

Time 313 so far away is that star from us.

00:38:09--> 00:38:16

It is 60,000 times brighter than the sun so we think the sun is the brightest side no no in the universe don't do

00:38:18--> 00:38:25

this cannabis died in the southern hemisphere 60,000 times more brighter in the anderson

00:38:27--> 00:38:28

cooper city

00:38:31--> 00:38:44

billions of years ago on last month for what do you know that NASA the National Aeronautics and Space Administration The US has people have signed up the satellites and send spacecraft into into the air.

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

Without canopus they would not have been able to send a single spacecraft

00:38:52--> 00:39:13

into the because it is canopus that determines the altitude of anything that goes up in the sky. Because it is the brightest star on earth by which they can measure how high the spacecraft is going and how much fuel they would need to get that spacecraft site to Mars or around the earth and back.

00:39:14--> 00:39:26

That star determines altitude. That star which Allah subhanaw taala has placed there for us 92 in the north, there are 51 stars

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

that guide pilots and captains to the destination South which is placed on a technology within all see the connection between the revelation which is Allah creation and technology is a direct link between it can say well you know the waste is clever and they do this and they know they can do nothing without our last panel allows us to do everything there for them. And therefore it is knowledge which is the carrot Allah says here it is. Here it is universe here it is humanity. I placed all this for you so they can you can use it.

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

As you can travel into the earth,

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

the sky.

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

Now, these 51, navigational stars, which is in the North

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

43 of those stars,

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

still be Arabic names.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

But after today,

00:40:22--> 00:40:32

even American pilot, or British pilot or European pilot does his training, he has to learn the stars by Arabic names, 43 of them still have Arabic names,

00:40:33--> 00:40:50

because of course it was the Arabs and the Persians will spend their nights mapping the heavens. And there was so much respect and honor and all and admiration for the Arabs, that the West didn't change the names of the stars like they do with everything else, they kept the names.

00:40:53--> 00:40:55

And one of the names of the local was the name,

00:40:56--> 00:41:06

you can only recognize that these Arabic names if you can see the relationship between the name because of course this is a little bit of disruption between the name and its Arabic.

00:41:08--> 00:41:13

The initial Arabic name, so the word formal, the formal route, to me sounded like German

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

is one of the stars.

00:41:19--> 00:41:25

But if you look up this word, you'll find that it actually says from

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

from

00:41:31--> 00:41:37

one of the signs that you read in the newspaper is Pisces, Pisces, the fish.

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

Thermal food is the mouth of the fish. So this star is right at the mouth, fishes in the sky, those of you who know astrology, and at the mouth,

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

and these days retained by the West.

00:41:56--> 00:42:12

And so today we are in awe of the West, isn't it? Well, you know, of all the things that that the West make. And because of that oh and admiration, there are many things which are waste is made that we have Arabic names for, for example, telephone, we have a very good name for telephone in Arabic.

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

But don't use the word it uses the word mean he doesn't use it as a telephone,

00:42:19--> 00:42:32

telephone calls of telephone because he recognizes that this telephone is such a great invention, the cell phone or the telephone, that we call by the name of those people invented.

00:42:35--> 00:42:39

So the great spacecraft and satellites are guided

00:42:40--> 00:42:51

by stars still bearing the Muslim names Subhana Allah in the 21st century, and there is a direct connection between Allah and modern science.

00:42:53--> 00:43:01

And amarapura katabami know the very famous story of Amara katabi. Was anyone the member in Medina and he said the tangible

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

when people thought he was going crazy, suddenly he stood up

00:43:06--> 00:43:08

and suddenly said yes, arietta Java.

00:43:11--> 00:43:18

Outside Yeah, look at the mountain. What is what is on our sea? What is almost saying, sorry, look at the mountain.

00:43:20--> 00:43:28

And only when the Muslim army came back from Persia, and he came to tell the people of Medina, we heard the voice of Oman.

00:43:30--> 00:43:35

On the battlefield in Persia, he was telling us to look at the boundary the enemy was coming from the mountain.

00:43:45--> 00:43:49

Let's talk about voice 1000 miles you heard 1000 miles away.

00:43:51--> 00:43:59

We have GPS global positioning system. We use it in our cars or airplanes wherever we use it.

00:44:00--> 00:44:02

The world has GPS but we as Muslims,

00:44:03--> 00:44:08

we have God's positioning system or APS allas positioning system,

00:44:09--> 00:44:14

the original positioning system which are used by everybody today.

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

So

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

do you think that all this is just coincidence

00:44:22--> 00:44:26

just happened just there to us?

00:44:27--> 00:44:40

That there is no no lesson for us no indication of of the greatness of our last time without that man is dependent on our laws. There are laws hundreds put all the initial knowledge there for us to be able to move forward

00:44:41--> 00:44:42

to be able to go forward

00:44:44--> 00:44:46

to the heavens belong to Muslims.

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

It's a Muslim names that are written on the heavens. Just as it's spiritually heaven. Jana also belongs to Muslims. Only the spiritual Evan Jana which calls the call Heaven, everybody calls

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

Java heaven, the Christians will say you will go to heaven, you'll go to hell. And the actual heavens that we look at also belong to not belong to the Muslims in the sense that they, it's for their acquisition that they can lay claim to it No, to turn the game to the heavens in order to know allows pinata.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

But where do I turn against? We turn against human beings.

00:45:25--> 00:45:29

We make stars that have human beings, and Muslims even make stars that have dead human beings.

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

so crazy we've become

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

the Hala quwata illa.

00:45:42--> 00:45:47

Allah, Allah and Allah says and do not give rivals to Allah.

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

Do not give partners to Allah.

00:45:51--> 00:46:02

Do not ascribe greatest to other than Allah, how can you do that? How is it possible for a Muslim? Who just looks at the heavens to turn his face to a grave? Or to a human being?

00:46:06--> 00:46:11

How is it possible that we can actually do that, knowing that we have the Quran

00:46:12--> 00:46:14

and knowing what the Quran has done for us?

00:46:16--> 00:46:31

So when the when the non Muslims when the Americans look up at the sky, when the Americans in spacecraft to the moon, and want to get to Mars, and train the Hubble telescope on all the galaxies that are out there?

00:46:32--> 00:46:33

Why are they doing that?

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

They're doing that.

00:46:37--> 00:46:42

Because they have this urge, unless Buddha's urging men for the truth.

00:46:44--> 00:46:46

They want material proof

00:46:47--> 00:46:57

for that which they fear, in what are they fear, they fear that there may be a god. That's what they fear. Because if there is a God, then there's a raft.

00:47:01--> 00:47:09

They want to find out whether this universe has a beginning because if it has a beginning it as a beginner, it has a creator

00:47:13--> 00:47:15

and it has a creator

00:47:18--> 00:47:19

whatever you call it,

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

it is he who created the universe.

00:47:26--> 00:47:30

And we find that in the writings you read, read any book written by

00:47:31--> 00:47:36

Western scientists. They astounded at the universe, sound

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

that may change of anything in universe but

00:47:42--> 00:48:01

they've only now discovered in the 50s that the universe is expanding. It's not contracting without getting sports getting bigger and bigger and bigger. And the Quran says it is expanding said it expands 1400 years ago Why in the hula moose your own Allah says we're in no loose your own and the universe is expanding.

00:48:03--> 00:48:08

And the truth the waist down is covered now 50 years ago, so column.

00:48:09--> 00:48:10

So

00:48:11--> 00:48:13

the object and purpose

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

of this lecture is to

00:48:19--> 00:48:21

inspire me and to inspire you.

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

To find Allah in the dunya

00:48:26--> 00:48:39

you're gonna you're gonna see Allah to Allah, no doubt about that. No doubt that you're going to find other than to find you. But we need to find our last 100 a year and the way we're going to find our way through the verse sunnery him, Athena Phil,

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

Wolfie and fusi in Pattaya yen Allah

00:48:44--> 00:48:51

allows one that says and we will show you in the furthest horizons of the universe

00:48:53--> 00:48:53

outside our

00:48:54--> 00:48:59

head diameter debate until it will be clear to them the non believers

00:49:00--> 00:49:06

that this book is the truth from Allah. Allah. Allah, Allah Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
