beloved brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Tonight, inshallah, we're going to speak about the context of the marriage.
Now, to put it first into historical context, we are aware that
all we know
that now naughty spots of Islam, how do we know that?
We know that because Allah subhanaw taala mentions it in the hood.
So when we want to know something,
whether it's factual or not factual,
whether it is part of the Sharia or not part of the Sharia. Our first port of call is always the Quran.
Not only is our first port of call the Quran, but when the Quran gives a decisive
answer to the question that we ask. We stop at the core. Don't go further and so for answers Subhana leri SRB Abdullahi Leyland, mineral, Merci de harami Elan max laksa, hello fabulous His Glory be to Allah the perfect one. Subhan Allah, Allah is completely free of any defects. Allah is perfect. Allah is perfection.
So behind Allah he he will Assad the Abdi he took these slave
on a journey
on a nightly journey
meenal magical baramulla modulates
from Mazel Haram in Makkah to magic lotsa
now allows fun to give that we all participate in the liberation of the third holiest mosque in Islam, it belongs to us, it will never belong to anybody else.
Send it in since it became a Masjid, it will remain a Masjid till the end of time. And it's our duty and responsibility to see that that concept of magic pneus of magic lochsa is always kept alive were with our children, first of all, our families.
Those are the people that we need to for weep for for whom we need to keep this alive.
Because we would love our of our progeny,
to be part of the army, that is going to be when they'll be easier to defend, and to finally conquer magical oxa and bring it back into the realm of the glory of Islam in the glory. The glory of Allah was kind of overtired. And we know from other verses in the Holy Quran, Allah so Allah says, and from the last one took him through, took him through the seven heavens to Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, those of us who have been around for a while, we know the outlines of this
Greg Knightley journey, nocturnal journey. Tonight I want to sketch
the psychological and physical and spiritual condition of the Navy SEALs alum when he went on this journey.
Why did Allah choose this particular type to send him on this journey? What is what was the time of the journey? The time of the journey is not even known in Islamic calendar years. Nevermind the 27 night of Raja we don't even know when this happened in the Islamic calendar. Yes. Why? Because the Islamic calendar did not exist at the time of the
the Islamic calendar was initiated by Omar even hottub during Easter which is which is after the death of the Navy Salalah Harley awesome. So what are these stories and say they calculated in terms of their Gregorian calendar they say they happen in the year 610
Ad sorry, 600 between 619 and 621. Ad.
The month can anybody's guess, the night anybody's guess? But as I said, Who confirms that my night of neurons? Allah subhanaw taala confirms it. Now for what reason? For what reason does they all do this
and made an emphasis on participate in this kind of
a journey that, that that
the person when he listens to it, it's an amazing story.
It's an absolutely amazing story for a man to travel from Makkah to Jerusalem in one and from there, through the seven heavens to our last panel, we just added I, we just had a buggy land on Mars, and after how many years this module, this
call whatever they call it, landed on Mars.
So tonight, inshallah I want to try and put this in all into context. So what do we do first, we know that
this journey took place in the year that the EDA took place, which means the newbies were it was the 12th year, not yet the 13th year of his 10 marker. So he was he was in NACA, for about 12 years, when this when when allowes father took him to himself in this nitrogen
that we know.
And what do we do on this night? Or what do we do when we want to, we want to talk about this great night, we talk about it.
We speak about, we have a lecture about
what we do for that kid in Africa, and for our movement in the general rule about these great happenings in the Quran is allowances for that kid remind
for inadequate and valuable, because by reminding, we get an insight, small insight into the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the beauty of the character of Mohammed Salah Longson, his humanity comes through on this night.
Humanity comes through
you know, we live in a time now when we have a lot of arguments i've i've not involved myself in the in the vaccine argument.
But I've listened to many, many arguments. And one of the argument, you know, when when people talk about themselves, and their attitude towards the vaccine, it's, et cetera, et cetera. I agree, accept all opinions.
Even if you're not a doctor, we listen to you. When we're at that stage where even if people are no doctors and want to give a medical opinion, we say really earlier era. All right. People say for example, that you mustn't fear you're never going to the most g stands shoulder to shoulder
you must have been, you know, the old protocols must remain. We don't need these new protocols. These from the kuffaar you know, they tend to break up Islam they tend to distort the deal you're trying to destroy man.
Essentially what they're saying is we are mostly Zoomers, in fear. Muslims might be fearless.
But my dear brothers and sisters apart from everything else, we need to establish, did the Prophet fear
these are Salah quotes Allah to have First of all, there is a Salah called the Salah, Aafia When, when, when, when the Prophet was in the battlefield, Allah said this is how you must pray for some of you pray that some of you stand with arms in case the enemy wants to attack and then another group comes it's called the salon fear. Fear of what Wolfie is the profit in the Sahaba don't profit or Sofia, profit was a human being if
he put the alley in his bed the night they came to kill him. Why?
He didn't feel he should have stayed in his bed.
And he should have said I wasn't fear and the Prophet I don't fear I stay in my bed. If Allah doesn't want him to kill me, they can't kill me. What did you do? No, you follow the normal natural way.
allay these fears. He said I'll use the pill a bit.
Then if he had again, he went into the cave, you could have just walked up, taken the camel's back and gave him and tobacco company and when in the desert instead of worry. Alone makers. They won't see us.
But where do we need to go first? You need to go to hide in a cave.
fourth reason for only one reason. He was fearful because
Amazon is here
Death or life what is it what would they have done dude have killed
no Bucky was in the cave with a prophet and he when they were in the cave, our bucket looked down and he saw the feet of the reservoir right in front of the cave and he said to the Prophet Salaam know now that I had to touch the academy later on, he said oh prophet Allah in the Quran should look down they will see our feet so in close they were so a lot stronger revealed of us laughter Hassan
prophecy to him. Allah says lot as an inner la vida don't don't don't don't be sad Don't be sad. Don't be fearful. Hello, Sandra is with us. profitable amo NT when when you went into battle?
Why do we all know he was a prophet 1000s of angels could have protected him.
But he had to show his humanity.
What do we do when you go into battle? You want to tell his own take his word.
Put on your armor. In other words, what what is the message of the Quran?
for either assumpta Fatah call Allah, Allah foundress is clearly when must you put your trust in Allah.
When must you die Oh camel.
you should first take all precautions
then you should put your trust in our last panel.
That is the natural way.
We are not born angels we are not born of spirit only we are human beings we die. We get hurt we get injured.
That is the natural way of life.
Allah says latter two amphastar kobina Locanda Kumara Hema, Allah say don't kill yourself
almost wanderlusting merciful towards you.
So Muhammad SAW Allah Salaam, la salatu salam.
This was in the 12th year of the Hydra.
He just lost his wife,
mother of all his children,
his four daughters.
It was a very painful year for him
losing losing Khadija Khadija was about 65 and he was
25 years younger than her was 25 years younger than her 15 years math. So he was about 50. She was 65. Left she had four daughters ruqayyah
Xena, and foster mother baby. There were two others in the household. Ali's cousin was staying with him.
And they didn't hide it.
They didn't hide it. That was
the Prophet adopted him until Allah said no such thing as adoption in Islam.
Every man must retain the name of his father and because by the name of his father,
he was a slave Professor sensitively. So he also lived in a very sad year for the Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
Then his uncle fell video. And in the same year, Uncle Abu totally felt very, very ill and muttalib the orange went to a metallic.
They might have a delegation, Abu lahab was in that delegation. Abu Sufyan was in that delegation.
All the top for quraishi chieftains leaders were in the delegation, and they came to Abu Talib and he said you know you are you're you're an inner man, you know, we don't know what's going to happen but we want you to call your your brother Abdullah son and we want you to you Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and we want you to speak to him and tell him we we would like to exchange gifts with him.
So I would I will tell him called the Nabi sallallahu Sallam and say look, you know
the brainwashing which is the type that Prophet came from, you know, the very concerned about your preaching against their idols. They want to they want to strike a deal with you.
They make you an offer and you can make them an offer.
So Abu lahab profit came
the policy chieftains were there. A metallic citizen Eddie Salas alum so what do you offer is walking? What is it you want to say to us? Speak 10 words one word. The prophets of Salaam said I want to say only one. One word. The adults when they want to say very little. They say Kelly my wife
or Kalamata are two words.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them,
I want to say something to you that will make you the rulers of the world, the leaders of Arabia, and you will be the ruler of the Persian Empire.
Because I mean this to them the parade, they this sounded impossible.
There's a small town in Makkah, the Persian Empire is on the on power, the Roman Empire. Those were the two great empires. Like we have China today and an America that time it was Persia and Rome. So in the prophecy that this of course they laughed.
And they said, How are we going to do this Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he said,
I want you to do one thing for me. Only one thing.
And that is
you must renounce the worship of the idols.
You must say the words, La Ilaha Illa. Allah.
Brothers and sisters, I know you've heard this a lot of times, I want you to listen carefully to what I'm going to say to you tonight.
La ilaha illAllah is the foundation of Islam.
I'm sure you agree with me. Lots of you disagree with me with many things.
But yeah, we are in total agreement. That's all called the strings.
Orosz looked at me said, Do you want us to make all our many gods one God? Johnson
Let's look at what let us consider this sentence. La Ilaha.
It's the first part of it.
Illa de nerissa salam segment call Allah Allah, Allah Allah
and mot mean, the halogen.
The person who says these words when he dies, he will enter Paradise. There are many other things about layline longer.
But what what is what is Llama Llama signify?
Why can a whole of a religion be encapsulated? In these few words, few letters? And why does it start with law? No.
What is the kalama? The foundation of Islam start with the word no law, no.
Law, no God in the likes of Allah. La Ilaha Illa. Allah forwards, we may say it's forward La ilaha illa Allah
it starts with the negative.
I want you to imbibe this. This is to kalama my Colima
lies don't other meaning you can't say we're a large God. Maybe it means yes. Also, maybe it means in between No.
Now is yes. And love is no.
There is no God.
I think it's a strange way of starting over faith, there is no God.
So what do we have as the first part of the kallio? It's called the aid of negation.
The heat of denial,
denying what negate What?
When somebody comes to you with something, Islam teaches us to first say no.
If it's something you're not sure about, what must you do? Say No.
Why must you say no? Because you don't know.
You're not sure somebody comes and says, Is this part of his Islam? If this part is resolved, you say? No, it's not because you haven't said it any Hadith concerning the Quranic idea concerning this, don't tell me about your father and your mother, and your grandfather, and so on and so on. So no.
Again, you say no.
When the prophets are awful and came and preached his message, what is his message?
don't worship the idols.
First don't do something.
In other words, first clear the table
clear the table.
So when somebody comes to you, you then say, Well, I'm going to accept what he says and I'm going to do what he says. Until inshallah, one day I find out, it's either the writing the wrong thing.
What if you die before then?
Is that always operates, you come into a court of law, for example,
What is the judge a fire, we will accept all what you say. And now we will go on a path of finding, finding out what what you say is true, but we will will will accept it.
So they don't accept it's true. To say we don't think anything you say is true, until you come with what witnesses and evidence
and what is stronger physical evidence, or human witnesses in any court of law, the human word, it stops everything. You can call a witness to what is a witness. A witness is a person who was present when the happening to place, evidence was also stronger at different kinds of evidence. The evidence has different values around his evidence, it has a value too soon as evidence that is different value. Chaos isn't evidence is different value Iijima consensus as evidence as a different value.
So in Islam, the first value is the evidence of negation.
There is nothing on the table rather,
the only thing that is on the table for us now is for an answer that is on the table.
So a man can come if you ask him, he says no.
It's not there, you know, but
you say, brother, our Dean starts with negation, or the answer to and we say no. until we find evidence, then we say yes, when I say but how can we? How can we accept Illa Allah where's the evidence?
Where's the evidence?
So then, the first part denies the existence of a god the second part confirms so first negation then affirmation.
So you may ask me but Chetna with with the confirmation. Nobody has seen a last panel Watada.
Yes, somebody did.
One Long Island in which way in Richmond about somebody who was that person on the Mirage that was Muhammad Salah Lavalle awesome. So what is how is that confirmed in the Quran? allows for handler says Bismillah R Rahman Rahim.
know that? What does Allah say? Allah say, all means you have a hammer. It's a it's a singular. It's a command in singular form. If you want to say too many people, you say kulu. Allah had all of you say Allah, Allah doesn't say that. Allah says, good. Oh, you Mohammed only use a kulula only you say Allah.
Only you say that I am one. Why? Because he saw a low. So he's a witness to allow us.
And that is, and because he never told the lie, and welcome and we are all our backers, we accepted with humidity. We said la isla, there is no Illa. Muhammad Hassan came and said,
My Lord took me through the seven heavens.
That is why he tells me to tell you.
Thank you when I was talking, when my professor Sam came back from the lodge. And he said he went through the seven heavens. And he went to by taqaddas obachan said, If Mohammed Hassan said, I believe it, no questions asked panela.
So that is the relate our Lunchables.
it's a it's a it's an empty page,
until the evidence fills the page.
Then we say Illa Allah, there is no there is except Allah. These no god except Allah Subhana.
And this philosophy, I attended a conference in Sierra Leone, probably in the 80s. I can't remember. Exactly, but I know it's in the early 80s. And there was a there was an alum who spoke to us I was a young man, compared to
And I remember clearly, this is all any member of his talk. It was a private, in his in his.
In his hotel room, we were all sitting there a few of us. And he spoke about wisdom.
And he said that
the essence of wisdom,
See, the essence of wisdom is a man who knows when to say yes, and when to say no.
Since that is the essence first.
If we can teach our children when to say yes and when to say no
No, they will become wise before they become old.
We can only know yes or no when we become old and we realize oh, no, no, I must say no, no. Oh, okay. I can say yes. No. And all their lives they have said, Okay, yes. Okay now.
So wisdom, if the if the calendar consists all the wisdom of Islam,
so yes or no
contains all the wisdom of the world in which we live.
So he said that the Quran
This is the short I require from you,
And that is what today, non Muslims, it's easy for them to accept Islam, because these concepts are very easy.
It's not like not like the Trinity or some something else, or belief in
others besides God,
who is not God, even Muslims believe that things who has power besides a last minute on and we can tap into that power. These may be living beings, they may be non living beings. We also have that we haven't we haven't made we haven't killed the page yet. And if you haven't cleaned the page it My dear brothers in your relationship with Allah, that is the only law you can't get to Illa Allah, you will never get to illuma at first.
And whatever you believe in after that must come from Allah.
And what comes from Allah, the essence of
what else goes from Allah, the Prophet salallahu
So they said, Well,
we can't accept this. Sorry, professor from left.
this was his last confrontation
with the Chiefs of Police.
They basically now had an attitude of your mouth, we don't belong to MCI anymore. You don't have mechon anymore. You don't have the Banu Hashim anymore.
So the Prophet left Makkah, and he went to the turn,
left on top of the mountain, called life outside of Makkah,
he thought Valley will go to Turkey, if
he can't lose anything. Quraysh Makkah has rejected him to come to that event, we know the story. The cave was ruled by three brothers.
And the three brothers ridiculed him when he said, I've come to call you to Islam, one brother said,
if you're a prophet, I can't speak to you because you have such a high status. And if you're lying, I also can't speak to you because I don't speak to liars.
And the other ones, it's something else.
And the third one insulted him in some other way.
And not only that, and as you know, they put up the children to throw stones and eventually landed,
exhausted, he just flopped down in a in somebody's garden, and he was sitting there and as he was sitting there,
what did you do, Beloved of Allah.
Allah was watching
lost his wife, lost is lost his political support his uncle, nobody could touch him his uncle was alive.
Now, nobody wants to listen to
even to listen to him, give him a year.
Any setting that garden
and his garden belong to two to two brothers and they saw him sitting there and they knew him because at the end of the the the the the burial of his uncle Abu Talib, so they knew what Mohammed Salah was.
And they thought you know, they, they said the people of suceava very unkind to him and they call it they call the seventh and they say to the seventh, take these grapes, put it in a in a plate and take it to that bed sitting under the tree.
So this man his name was and thus he was from he came and he gave it to the nerissa Salomon visa salad took the grades and the visa sir and said Bismillah when the Nagisa someone said Bismillah this man 70 citizen visa Salaam I have never been I've never I've never heard those words being mentioned in this society. Where I come from.
We mentioned this we say Bismillah
so the Nagisa Salah was a way from
he said I'm from Nineveh someone era
Um, so the Prophet promises Some said, Oh, you are from
my brother's country. So you said your brother? Yes, he said, Prophet Yunus we're saying to the people of Nigeria, you doesn't really matter.
How did you know this? prophesizes because I'm also profit. We are brothers. We all know each other.
So this man kissed is for foreign profits for him. His name was Act does, he keeps the profits hands and kiss the profits feet. And the two brothers, the owners of the orchard looked at this. They said Oh, he's already
he's already be dazzled our servants who decided seven came back. They said to him, what happened? Why did you kiss his foreign kiss his hands and kiss his feet?
He said because
what he said only prophet knows. Nobody else knows that.
He's a prophet.
He knows our Prophet
and he knows the father of our Prophet Yunus diplomat
and he was a Christian. So they said to him, you know you'll get a just forget about them. Because you know, yeah, we don't allow any you can have your Christian faith where we don't allow anybody to follow Muhammad.
And the Prophet being a human being, he knew that he was human.
And I Bashara mizuko highly. Professor Salim said Allah what is telling me the Quran, how much he describes himself.
I am a human being partial mizuko like you. But the difference between you and me is, unless individual to me with revelation with the Quran, I was the only one who received revelation. That's the difference between
the chosen one al Mustafa chosen for what chosen for the message of love
to give it to the world.
So the Prophet sitting there is crying, his legs please. His appeals, blood is flowing on his heels and he puts up his
follow up to us. He teaches us the power of Dre.
Always turn to your Creator.
And he says to our last one De La La Liga.
He says Allah
Oh my Lord, I complain of my weakness.
He admits he's a human being is weak. is said I complained of my weakness.
And I complained about my lack of support
and the humiliation I've received.
Well, how are they alumnus?
And the way people treat me?
It's my complaint. Y'all. Are you responsible for this? I got no support and weak look at the people to tell the children.
Oh my lord, I'm talking to you about this. And he says your hammer is almost merciful.
Hon. Mr. Duffy, he says, this is an intimate conversation. So our to our conversation with the Lord says Allah, our Lord of the oppressed,
considers often our Lord of the oppressed.
Want to be an Oh my Lord, Lord of the prison. Oh my lord
Illa Manta Killarney
Who are you leaving me to?
Who's going to support me in this dunya who is the warrior living me? elaborating yetta jaha Mooney, amela doing Mulla Mulla Mulla who Omri? He said, Oh Allah, he didn't leave me to a distant person.
To some people will only received me with hostility
or to an enemy,
that you have given power over me, because speaks to all this. This is how he sees the situation. This is how we should speak to our loss function. All of us have unique problems
with other people with lots of things and wish teledensity it is C to under this is I feel this is my log in life.
And then he says Oh Allah
Illa Mia Khun bigger Allah yada, yada. He says, Oh Allah, as long as you are not angry with me, as long as you are not displeased with me. I don't care what what I face. I don't care.
I'll just do the English because I think we
Do run out of time. He says,
you know, if you're displeased with a minute,
what do I get? I'll face anything.
However, I will be much happier if you share with some of you mercy upon me.
He says, Oh Allah, I seek refuge
in the light of your face.
I seek refuge
in the source of light, source of light to the universe.
And I want you to dispel for me, the darkness both in this life and the
and put me on the right path.
Put me on the path that will not incur your anger.
Now let's put me on the path. We will only be pleased with me.
Or the subject of your anger. Oh Allah, do you I submit?
do you I submitted that until I earn your pleasure. So what was it about, about getting the pleasure of Allah, about getting the
pleasure of Allah, about getting the being on the right course about Allah? Allah is basically saying all along me in this world in the aft
Why? Because he says, everything is powerless. Without your support, I need your support Allah
and Allah say this is why we should make when we are troubled, very troubled. Make the store to Allah Subhana
profit lift made the door immediately be gibril kangaroo almohad
locker Allah says no Quran nakatomi Allah cola let you to judge you look at his LG high wattage tequila. Omen came to a woman came to complain to the to the Prophet about her husband.
And the Prophet didn't know what to do. He didn't have an answer for the question she asked the problem that was between you and I nasbla. And Allah revealed these verses.
Look at semi Allahu Allah says to the Prophet I am hearing
called allottee to judge Luca physiologia. I'm listening to the complaint that this lady is making to you. So Pamela,
so ladies, when you have a complaint, don't think Allah Allah says I'm listening to Swagelok and
we sometimes think we complain, we complain, and we have real issues with our wives or husbands or children or families.
Allah knows. And Allah knows what the real issue is.
You may be able to tell the measure or the judge of the chef or the mob your story, but the real story Allah knows. So we should always tell the real story. So Allah heard, Sanjay Breen gibreel came and he said, O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
he brought in with another angel which the Prophet didn't recognize. He said, I brought for you the angel of the mountains. If you want, I will ask him. Just ask. I will squash the people of trifled with a mountain of life,
the property of no even even if they rejected Islam, I make dua to Allah, Allah to bless the children and to make them
I'll accept the deal.
So, drop my dear brothers and sisters, on my ears is in the word. You may not think Allah,
Allah knows every single word.
So that was the position and condition of Mohammed Salah lorrison.
Now you, you can understand, pitching for 12 years, and then being chased out of Makkah.
He couldn't come back into NACA, became at night, and he
made Salah on the road back to Makkah. And the gene came to listen to him, and they accepted Islam. So this all happened in this time. And as he was as he was
contemplating the scene, he said, Subhan Allah, alright, so the people of the cliff rejected me, but at one slaved in the garden, he accepted me as a prophet.
Something I didn't, I didn't mean to give him the message.
What is that latifi can
I give you the idea to I will
Wait these 2000s of people that I will put my message in the heart of the person that I decided to put the message in now the law II
guidance is the guidance only which are luggages. And secondly, by them listening to reading the Quran, the gene came past and I read the Koran and accepted Islam. I wasn't say I was sent to them also because he knew Allah sending to Denali men engine. So he realized that in my end, I shouldn't feel so sad. Why am I feel sad when people don't accept Islam?
I'm gonna give you two examples on this journey that I saw these Oprah's Jin
Tae catholicon intermec eventually somebody fails but I'm
one of the tribal leaders felt sorry for him and took him under his protection and he entered and he entered
so now if somebody you know if somebody is a
or somebody is you feel that person needs something, you know, they they have a lot of complaints complaining about third complaint about that, you know, not enough of there's not a we don't have enough of everything.
What How do what is the best impression you can make with people,
especially when they close to you.
And then the Prophet was killed
Subhan Allah He was a Habib of allones chronometer.

I want to take you on a journey of a lifetime.
I want to show you how much I love you. And I'm going to show you
how little this world actually means.
There is a hadith narrated by an imager.
Oh by domata had it done before 110 often narrated by Timmy the
way Nafisa Salaam talks about the dunya you know this dunya
the dunya is all about you know Allah says
Allah says as a virus we talk about is our incomes have gone down and even worried about
why did we worried about our income and worry about the house we worried about our children's education we worried about paying the fees and worried about things we know what's going to happen if I lose my car, what is my friends gonna? Some things you worry about, oh, the worries and the stresses and the pressure is all about the material things that we worry about.
Sometimes we perfect of weathermen goes into depression. Why? Because instead of having a million bank, the bank now is half a billion dollars in the bank.
Let's see what Allah says. Professor Salim says

masaka Catherine mina potterton avida Alo Suhana Tyler would not a given
The caffeine, a drop of water.
So what does it tell us? It tells us that a longspur handler
doesn't value this dunya
more than the width of the wing of mosquito. And we know one wing of a mosquito is worthless
isn't that there's nothing you can do with it. There's no value.
So how can we get depressed about something that has no value?
So let us look at this.
This gift to get the profits ourselves out of his
Don't Otterness maybe Allah took him
to Machu lochsa they played with Obi ambia, then Allah took him through the seven heavens, I'll give you an insight as to what it means.
When we read a hadith on the Mirage, about the Prophet going through the seven heavens
until the 20th century,
this world with all its knowledge,
believed that the the, the universe was static. It was created with a big bang. And it is, whatever shape it is, but it is changeless. That is not going to be big. That is how it came out to be in the in the beginning out of the Big Bang. And that's how it's going to end in
exactly the same structure.
Only in the 21st century did they discover with Hubble telescope? What did they discover? They discovered that these this universe is expanding, it's getting bigger and bigger and bigger. And what does allows for what does Allah say about this?
In seventh century Arabia when there was no scientists and no science, no cars, nothing of this existed, allows for hydroton I want you to make a mental note of this idea
way this appears in the Quran.
Allah Subhana Allah says,
Well, let me first say what the law what the law says.
there yet Surah At that yet, which is the 51st surah verse 47, Allah Subhan Allah says, with a power with power and skill will be constructed firmament. Allah says with power and skill,
the power of Allah, the skill of Allah, because after the whole universe, then Allah says, No, it is re we expand the vastness of space.
So it's even century radiography, we expand the universe, the space that was in the beginning is not the same. It grows all the time.
Who would only know this on your long notice on the creator of the universe who would know this?
And for millions and millions and millions and millions and billions and billions of years, human beings didn't know that. They only discovered it now.
So does the Hubble Telescope
for those who still don't believe don't believe
it's almost a panel.
So when the Prophet went through
the seven heavens,
I'm done. I'm good on time.
Finish this nine o'clock.
