00:16:33 --> 00:16:35

There is no archaeological

00:16:35 --> 00:16:38

proof that Muhammad SAW Salam himself existed,

00:16:39 --> 00:16:40

right? They don't have a proof, they don't

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

have a physical proof.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:44

Now these are physical proofs

00:16:44 --> 00:16:47

of the Quran. Quran that was written during

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

the time of

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam or maybe 10 years,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:54

20 years after his death, Alaihi Salatu Wasallam.

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

We are the oldest fragments of the Quran

00:16:59 --> 00:17:00

ever discovered.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:02

It's written on parchment,

00:17:02 --> 00:17:05

but half made from sheep or goat skin,

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

and it's been dated by experts as being

00:17:07 --> 00:17:10

more than 1300 years old. And that meant

00:17:10 --> 00:17:12

it among the earliest known fragments of the

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

Quran anywhere in the world, and it's here

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

in the University of Birmingham.

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

This remarkable document had been resting on Charles

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

of the University Library for decades,

00:17:22 --> 00:17:25

without anybody realizing just how old it was

00:17:25 --> 00:17:26

until a researcher

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

decided to take a closer look.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:32

The pages for Radiocarbon dated to no later

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

than the year 645,

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

which means the university has found one of

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

the very earliest known examples. Finding out that

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

we can run the oldest reference of the

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38

economy in the whole world was

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

The manuscript had been stored here in a

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

collection of Middle East and documents

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

brought to Birmingham in the 19 twenties.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:09

Academics here say that this discovery goes back

00:18:09 --> 00:18:11

to the earliest years of Islam.

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

The person who actually wrote it may well

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

have known the prophet Mohammed.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:22

Maybe have heard him preach.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:24

He may have known him personally.

00:18:25 --> 00:18:26

And that really is

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

treasure in their city. When I saw these

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

bridges, I was very much loaded. There were

00:18:40 --> 00:18:41

tears of joy

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

and emotions

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

This is an exceptionally rare or valuable discovery.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

And the university says that because on public

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

display, it has no intention of letting these

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

pages from world history

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

Okay.

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

So this video was shared in 2015

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

and this discovery actually was made in 2015

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

by a Muslim student. She she was a

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

PhD

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

student at the University of Birmingham and she

00:19:28 --> 00:19:31

was Muslim doing some studies on the Quran

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

and she's the one who discovered this old

00:19:33 --> 00:19:33

copy

00:19:34 --> 00:19:36

of the Quran. It was bought or stolen,

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

Allahu Alam, by an English

00:19:39 --> 00:19:40

person who lived in the Middle East. He

00:19:40 --> 00:19:42

took he brought it from Iraq

00:19:42 --> 00:19:43

and he took it to he had a

00:19:43 --> 00:19:45

collection, a famous collection in the city of

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

Birmingham.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:48

Now there is also

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

another

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

old

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

manuscript that is found in Germany

00:19:54 --> 00:19:56

in the university. Just if you in case

00:19:56 --> 00:19:57

you are interested,

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

in the university is Tubingen,

00:20:00 --> 00:20:01

Tubingen, t u

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

b I n g e n, University.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:08

And they said about this, you know, the

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

the fragment that they have in in Germany,

00:20:11 --> 00:20:13

in this city, these Germans, in the in

00:20:13 --> 00:20:15

this German university,

00:20:15 --> 00:20:18

they said this Quran that we have,

00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

it was proven.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:22

They found out through, you know, carbon dating

00:20:22 --> 00:20:24

that it was written

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

or it has it must have been written

00:20:27 --> 00:20:30

between 20 to 40 years after the death

00:20:30 --> 00:20:33

of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:20:33 --> 00:20:35

Christians don't have this.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:37

They don't have a proof, they don't have

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

a book, they don't have a physical proof

00:20:39 --> 00:20:41

that goes back to the time, the 1st

00:20:41 --> 00:20:42

century.

00:20:43 --> 00:20:44

The 1st century

00:20:44 --> 00:20:47

after the death of Prophet Isa Isa alaihis

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

salam. Not the death, I would say,

00:20:50 --> 00:20:52

you know, when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala decided

00:20:52 --> 00:20:55

to take him to heaven. But, so so

00:20:55 --> 00:20:55

anyway

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

so we have now

00:20:58 --> 00:21:01

different copies that are found in different cities.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

The thought that I would like to share

00:21:03 --> 00:21:06

with you is the Ayah in Surat Fusilat

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

Ayah 53.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said, Sanurihim.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:12

He's talking about the Kuffar, the disbelievers.

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

We will show

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

them

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

our signs

00:21:17 --> 00:21:18

in the horizons.

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

Wafi'em for him and within themselves

00:21:22 --> 00:21:23

until it becomes clear to them

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

that this Quran

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26

is the truth.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

This is the translation of

00:21:30 --> 00:21:32

you know, the clear Quran because the the

00:21:33 --> 00:21:33

he he said

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

until it becomes clear to them that this

00:21:39 --> 00:21:40

is the truth,

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

he said because Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala was

00:21:43 --> 00:21:44

talking in the previous ayah 52

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

52 about the Quran.

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

So he must be talking about the Quran

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

here because the other translation

00:21:54 --> 00:21:56

it's a the other translation or the other

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

meaning

00:21:57 --> 00:21:59

is about Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala that Allah

00:21:59 --> 00:22:01

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is the truth. But the

00:22:01 --> 00:22:03

context is about the Quran.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:05

My point here is,

00:22:05 --> 00:22:08

I always used to think about this Ayat

00:22:08 --> 00:22:10

in this ayat and urihim. We will show

00:22:10 --> 00:22:11

them our signs.

00:22:12 --> 00:22:14

I always had the impression

00:22:15 --> 00:22:16

that these signs

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

are about the signs

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

of creation in this universe.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:23

That Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will open the

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

doors of knowledge for people.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:28

They will look, they will study, they will

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

examine and investigate,

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

they will do more research about His Science

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

in this universe

00:22:34 --> 00:22:37

until it becomes to them it becomes clear

00:22:37 --> 00:22:38

to them that this deen,

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

the deen

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

is the truth from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

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

But Ayat in the Quran

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

in the Arabic language

00:22:47 --> 00:22:48

have two meanings.

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

Ayat and Quran, the verses of the Quran

00:22:51 --> 00:22:52

are called Ayat

00:22:53 --> 00:22:56

as we all know and also the signs

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

of creation in this universe.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:01

So what I'm trying to say here, this

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

Ayah

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

53 in Surat For Silat

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

might actually

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

could be an interpretation of what's happening now.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:11

Because these discoveries are happening just in the

00:23:11 --> 00:23:12

last 10 years.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

You know, you're talking about 2015,

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

this Quran manuscript,

00:23:17 --> 00:23:20

Birmingham Quran manuscript. They were discovered in 2015.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:22

That is less than 10 years.

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

The German

00:23:24 --> 00:23:25

copy

00:23:25 --> 00:23:27

or the copy that is found in the

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

German University,

00:23:28 --> 00:23:29

I read

00:23:30 --> 00:23:32

their article that was shared on their university.

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

I looked into their website,

00:23:34 --> 00:23:35

the website of the university

00:23:36 --> 00:23:38

and the article that it was written in

00:23:38 --> 00:23:39

2014,

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

that is 10 years.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

10 years. So in the last 10 years

00:23:44 --> 00:23:47

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is showing them

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

signs, showing them physical proofs.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:00

10 years, which is a very short period

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

of time. This is a very strong proof

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

actually by the way. When

00:24:05 --> 00:24:05

when historians,

00:24:06 --> 00:24:08

you know, study this subject, to them, this

00:24:08 --> 00:24:09

is enough.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:12

This is a strong physical proof that Muhammad

00:24:12 --> 00:24:14

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:24:14 --> 00:24:16

was a person who lived there during that

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

time and the Quran existed.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:22

What this professor said, David Thomas, He said

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

this is a proof that the Quran has

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

not been changed

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

because it is the same. They were able

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

to verify

00:24:28 --> 00:24:30

actually the the parchment or the fragments

00:24:30 --> 00:24:33

that are found in the University of Birmingham,

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

they contain 3 Suras. I don't know if

00:24:35 --> 00:24:37

they are full Suras but amazing

00:24:38 --> 00:24:38

amazingly

00:24:39 --> 00:24:40

is Sura

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

18

00:24:44 --> 00:24:46

or part of Surah 18 which is Surah

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

Al Kahf.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:50

Surah 19 which is about Mariam alaihis salam,

00:24:51 --> 00:24:54

the mother of Isa alayhi salam, short chapter

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

19

00:24:55 --> 00:24:56

and also 20.

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

And they were able to look into them

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

and compare between,

00:25:01 --> 00:25:04

you know, what is written there and between

00:25:04 --> 00:25:06

our Mushaf and they found no they were

00:25:06 --> 00:25:09

they found no difference. So this is something

00:25:09 --> 00:25:11

that you know if you want you can

00:25:11 --> 00:25:14

look into it and material is available. As

00:25:14 --> 00:25:15

I told

00:25:15 --> 00:25:17

you before, there is a center in Turkey

00:25:17 --> 00:25:19

that taking care of all these,

00:25:19 --> 00:25:22

you know, copies and they are they are

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

collecting information about these old copies of the

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

Quran

00:25:26 --> 00:25:28

that are found in different cities. I just

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

thought about,

00:25:29 --> 00:25:32

you know, Afaq, the word Afaq, the horizons

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

because Afaq is in Arabic horizons

00:25:34 --> 00:25:37

in different places of the world.

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

You will see the signs of Allah subhanahu

00:25:39 --> 00:25:41

wa ta'ala. So those copies of the Quran

00:25:41 --> 00:25:42

are found in Berlin,

00:25:43 --> 00:25:44

in Germany,

00:25:44 --> 00:25:47

in in UK, found in Turkey, in Tashkent,

00:25:47 --> 00:25:48

Uzbekistan

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

and different places

00:25:50 --> 00:25:53

and people are able to verify their dates

00:25:53 --> 00:25:53

and

00:25:54 --> 00:25:56

they are verify and they are able to

00:25:56 --> 00:25:57

verify that these copies

00:25:58 --> 00:26:00

were written during the first actually the 1st

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

century or the 7th century, a few years

00:26:03 --> 00:26:05

after the death of our prophet Muhammad SAWSALAM

00:26:05 --> 00:26:07

or during his life Allahu Ta'ala.

00:26:18 --> 00:26:20

You know, in this Halakah we're supposed to

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

talk about belief in the Unseen, Al Imam

00:26:22 --> 00:26:23

Bilghayb,

00:26:25 --> 00:26:27

and also knowledge of the Unseen and its

00:26:28 --> 00:26:29

types. There are 2 types of Ilm ul

00:26:29 --> 00:26:30

ghayb

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

and also knowledge of the Prophets and Messengers.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:36

Did they have access, full access to the

00:26:36 --> 00:26:38

knowledge of the unseen

00:26:38 --> 00:26:39

or was it limited

00:26:40 --> 00:26:42

to what was revealed to them?

00:26:43 --> 00:26:45

And also knowledge of the righteous people and

00:26:45 --> 00:26:47

saints and religious leaders.

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

We have

00:26:49 --> 00:26:52

different sects within Shia faith. They believe that

00:26:53 --> 00:26:56

their leaders, their Imams, they know they have

00:26:56 --> 00:26:58

ups they have unrestricted

00:26:58 --> 00:27:00

access to knowledge of the unseen.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:02

They know what happened in the past, they

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

know what's going on now in the world,

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

they know what will happen in the future.

00:27:06 --> 00:27:07

Is that true?

00:27:08 --> 00:27:10

Is this a form of shirk?

00:27:10 --> 00:27:11

Is this part of Islam?

00:27:12 --> 00:27:14

Can we what are their proofs?

00:27:15 --> 00:27:17

And also knowledge of the fortune tellers.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:20

There are people who consult fortune tellers and

00:27:20 --> 00:27:23

sometimes these these fortune tellers, we tell them.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:24

We give them something,

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

some information about something and it happens the

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

way

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

the way they told them about it.

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

So is it something

00:27:32 --> 00:27:35

from Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala? Obviously not, but

00:27:35 --> 00:27:38

maybe from jinns and and they have other

00:27:38 --> 00:27:40

sources. And also we need to talk about

00:27:40 --> 00:27:42

these things but Today, we cannot talk about

00:27:42 --> 00:27:45

all these subjects, Insha'Allah, on a different occasion,

00:27:46 --> 00:27:47

we will talk about most of these subjects.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:49

But I would like to focus on our

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50

belief

00:27:50 --> 00:27:53

in the unseen and belief in the unseen

00:27:53 --> 00:27:53

yahwan

00:27:53 --> 00:27:56

is a major tenant of faith. Al

00:27:58 --> 00:28:01

Al Imam Bilhayb is a major tenant of

00:28:01 --> 00:28:02

faith.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:05

If you look at Surat Al Baqarah, the

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

first page in Surat Al Baqarah,

00:28:08 --> 00:28:10

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala told us about some

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

characteristics

00:28:10 --> 00:28:12

and qualities of the believers.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:15

Those who accepted the Quran accepted Allah Subhanahu

00:28:15 --> 00:28:16

Wa Ta'ala as their creator.

00:28:21 --> 00:28:22

Their first

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

one of their I mean the first quality

00:28:24 --> 00:28:26

that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has mentioned, he

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

said,

00:28:41 --> 00:28:42

And then he said,

00:28:46 --> 00:28:48

The point is Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is

00:28:48 --> 00:28:51

telling us about those, you know, he said,

00:28:51 --> 00:28:51

Aliflamim

00:28:52 --> 00:28:52

dariqalkitabulaaribafi.

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

This

00:28:54 --> 00:28:57

is the book. There is no doubt about

00:28:57 --> 00:28:59

it. There is no doubt about it. A

00:28:59 --> 00:29:01

guidance for the people of Taqwah,

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

the people who follow the path of Taqwah

00:29:04 --> 00:29:06

and then he told us there are those

00:29:06 --> 00:29:07

who believe in the unseen.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:11

This is their first quality.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:13

And then Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said

00:29:14 --> 00:29:16

and they established the prayer and then they

00:29:16 --> 00:29:19

donate from whatever Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has

00:29:19 --> 00:29:21

provided them with.

00:29:21 --> 00:29:23

They donate from their wealth, They donate, they

00:29:23 --> 00:29:24

give sadaqaat.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:27

So they believe in the unseen, they establish

00:29:27 --> 00:29:28

the prayer

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

and they give sadaqa.

00:29:30 --> 00:29:31

And then in the next ayah, he said

00:29:31 --> 00:29:33

they believe in what was revealed to you

00:29:33 --> 00:29:35

and what was revealed

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

to those prophets and messengers before you. So

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

they believe in the other scriptures and books

00:29:41 --> 00:29:42

and then and

00:29:44 --> 00:29:44

Thee

00:29:45 --> 00:29:47

certainly or they believe

00:29:47 --> 00:29:48

with certainty

00:29:48 --> 00:29:50

in the Day of Judgment.

00:29:50 --> 00:29:52

So they have certainty, they have no doubt

00:29:52 --> 00:29:53

about

00:29:53 --> 00:29:55

the Day of Judgment. Most of these things

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

are about

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

knowledge of the unseen or belief in the

00:29:59 --> 00:30:00

unseen. Al iman Bilhayb.

00:30:01 --> 00:30:03

What is interesting at the end of this

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04

ayat Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:30:10 --> 00:30:12

said So if you have these qualities, if

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

you have these sifaat,

00:30:14 --> 00:30:15

sha Allah you'll be among those

00:30:16 --> 00:30:18

who are who are truly guided by their

00:30:18 --> 00:30:22

Lord. Ulaika Allahuhudam Mirabiem. It is those who

00:30:22 --> 00:30:23

are truly guided by

00:30:23 --> 00:30:24

their

00:30:24 --> 00:30:25

Lord

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

and

00:30:26 --> 00:30:28

and it is the those who will be

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

successful. This is a beautiful

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

statement by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, this is

00:30:32 --> 00:30:34

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:30:34 --> 00:30:35

minha'ula.

00:30:36 --> 00:30:37

Now the unseen,

00:30:38 --> 00:30:39

what is the unseen?

00:30:40 --> 00:30:43

Belief in the unseen. The unseen is anything

00:30:43 --> 00:30:44

that

00:30:45 --> 00:30:47

we did not see with our eyes

00:30:47 --> 00:30:50

or we cannot see. We cannot. It's impossible

00:30:50 --> 00:30:51

to see it. Right?

00:30:52 --> 00:30:52

It's not.

00:30:53 --> 00:30:55

We didn't see it in the past,

00:30:55 --> 00:30:57

we don't see it now and it's not

00:30:57 --> 00:30:59

possible for us to see it in the

00:30:59 --> 00:31:01

future like there are metha angels.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:03

You never dreamed that you will see an

00:31:03 --> 00:31:06

angel, it's not possible, right? It's not possible.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:07

Only prophets and messengers

00:31:08 --> 00:31:10

saw some angels but but the rest of

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

us will not be able. This is an

00:31:12 --> 00:31:15

example, for example. Jannah for example, we believe

00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

that Jannah exists. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

created Jannah but we're not able to see

00:31:19 --> 00:31:22

it. It is part of the the Eeman

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

Bil Ghayb.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:26

We believe in it, right? But we didn't

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

see it.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

So everything, it includes everything that we did

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

not see, we cannot see with our eyes

00:31:32 --> 00:31:35

and yet Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has commanded

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

us to believe in it.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:40

So this is basically the definition

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

of Al Iman Bilhayb.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

So it it refers of all

00:31:45 --> 00:31:46

in that

00:31:46 --> 00:31:48

that is found within the revelation

00:31:49 --> 00:31:51

and we have to believe in it and

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

most of the time we cannot

00:31:54 --> 00:31:55

prove it

00:31:56 --> 00:31:57

through intellectual inquiry

00:31:58 --> 00:32:01

or through scientific research. We cannot prove it.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:03

Of course, our Deen is divided. Matters of

00:32:04 --> 00:32:05

faith are divided in 2 types. Some of

00:32:05 --> 00:32:06

them we

00:32:07 --> 00:32:09

we are, inshaAllah, we try to we can

00:32:09 --> 00:32:12

investigate them and look into them and examine

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

them, right?

00:32:14 --> 00:32:16

And use intellectual inquiry to, you know, to

00:32:16 --> 00:32:19

understand them. But there are matters of faith,

00:32:19 --> 00:32:22

they cannot. You cannot prove them scientifically

00:32:22 --> 00:32:25

like the journey of Al Isra'ul Mi'raj.

00:32:26 --> 00:32:27

It's not possible for you to prove it

00:32:27 --> 00:32:28

in any way.

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

How can you prove this journey,

00:32:31 --> 00:32:33

right? You just believe in it

00:32:33 --> 00:32:35

and it's not possible for a human to

00:32:35 --> 00:32:37

do it. We We just believe in the

00:32:37 --> 00:32:39

power of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. When we

00:32:39 --> 00:32:41

talk about Isra wal Mi'raj,

00:32:41 --> 00:32:43

we talk about the power of Allah subhanahu

00:32:43 --> 00:32:46

wa ta'ala was able to take his servant

00:32:46 --> 00:32:48

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam from the city

00:32:48 --> 00:32:50

of Makkah to the city of Jerusalem

00:32:50 --> 00:32:53

and then he enabled him to ascend it

00:32:53 --> 00:32:55

to heaven and he was able to see,

00:32:56 --> 00:32:58

you know, many things there during that night,

00:32:58 --> 00:32:59

during that journey.

00:32:59 --> 00:33:01

So it includes what happened in the past

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

like Methane's stories in the Prophets. We didn't

00:33:04 --> 00:33:05

live with these Prophets

00:33:05 --> 00:33:07

and Messengers but we read about their stories

00:33:07 --> 00:33:09

in the Quran and we believe in these

00:33:09 --> 00:33:10

stories.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:14

It includes also what exists now but we

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

are not able to see it like as

00:33:15 --> 00:33:17

I said Jins. Most of the people don't

00:33:17 --> 00:33:19

see and not able to see Jins. Maybe

00:33:19 --> 00:33:21

some of them, maybe some people.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:25

They were told about those who practice witchcraft

00:33:26 --> 00:33:27

and and magic.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:29

Some of them are able to communicate with

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

Jinnies. I

00:33:32 --> 00:33:34

don't have experience with that.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:36

Anyway, but there are some people who claim

00:33:36 --> 00:33:39

that they are able to communicate with Jinnies.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:40

Right?

00:33:40 --> 00:33:43

And also Hayat al Barzakhiyah, life in the

00:33:43 --> 00:33:44

Barzah.

00:33:44 --> 00:33:46

We believe in it.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:48

Some people are enjoying their life in the

00:33:48 --> 00:33:50

graves, some people could be suffering

00:33:51 --> 00:33:53

but we don't see it, we're not able

00:33:53 --> 00:33:55

to see it. What will happen in the

00:33:55 --> 00:33:55

future?

00:33:55 --> 00:33:57

So all these things are included

00:33:58 --> 00:33:59

in,

00:34:00 --> 00:34:03

you know, in this concept of

00:34:03 --> 00:34:07

belief in the unseen, Al Iman Bilghay. So

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

basically

00:34:08 --> 00:34:11

anything that is related to life after death,

00:34:12 --> 00:34:14

anything that is related to life after death

00:34:14 --> 00:34:15

is part of this

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

big theme

00:34:17 --> 00:34:20

Al Iman Bilghayb or belief in the unseen.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:22

So basically it has to do with

00:34:23 --> 00:34:23

the fundamentals

00:34:24 --> 00:34:27

of faith. How do how should we believe

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

in the matters

00:34:29 --> 00:34:32

of faith or matters of the unseen?

00:34:32 --> 00:34:35

So number 1, our belief has to be

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

firm.

00:34:36 --> 00:34:37

I cannot have doubt.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:42

I have to believe in these matters with

00:34:42 --> 00:34:42

Yaqeen

00:34:43 --> 00:34:45

even if, as I said, I'm not able

00:34:45 --> 00:34:49

to prove them in a scientific method,

00:34:49 --> 00:34:51

I still have to have yaqeen uncertainty

00:34:52 --> 00:34:55

in this matter of faith. The only investigation

00:34:55 --> 00:34:57

that we are supposed to do, the only

00:34:57 --> 00:34:58

investigation

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

is to investigate

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

the soundness,

00:35:02 --> 00:35:04

make sure that it is an ayah from

00:35:04 --> 00:35:05

the Quran, I'm using an ayah from the

00:35:05 --> 00:35:06

Quran

00:35:06 --> 00:35:08

or I'm using an authentic hadith.

00:35:09 --> 00:35:11

So what I am supposed to investigate is

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

soundness

00:35:12 --> 00:35:13

of the textual

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

evidence.

00:35:16 --> 00:35:17

I need to make sure that I'm not

00:35:17 --> 00:35:21

using a weak hadith or a fabricated hadith

00:35:21 --> 00:35:23

or I'm not using the wrong ayah

00:35:24 --> 00:35:25

talking about the wrong subject.

00:35:26 --> 00:35:28

An ayah could be an ayah from the

00:35:28 --> 00:35:29

Quran

00:35:29 --> 00:35:32

but it is used in the wrong context.

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

It is used in the wrong way to

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

prove something that is not related to the

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

ayah, right? So I need to make sure

00:35:39 --> 00:35:41

that I am using the right verses of

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

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

related

00:35:44 --> 00:35:45

to their own subjects

00:35:45 --> 00:35:47

and also I am using

00:35:47 --> 00:35:50

a hadith that is authentic from the sunnah

00:35:50 --> 00:35:52

of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:35:53 --> 00:35:54

But when it comes to level

00:35:55 --> 00:35:55

of

00:35:55 --> 00:35:59

faith, there is no room for doubt when

00:35:59 --> 00:36:01

it comes to this matter of faith. Why?

00:36:01 --> 00:36:02

Because Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, if you go

00:36:02 --> 00:36:04

to Surat Al Khuzurat, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:36:04 --> 00:36:05

says about

00:36:15 --> 00:36:17

So he said the believers are only those

00:36:17 --> 00:36:19

who believed in Allah and His Messenger

00:36:19 --> 00:36:22

and have no doubt. Then have no doubt.

00:36:23 --> 00:36:24

They have no doubt in the matters of

00:36:24 --> 00:36:25

faith.

00:36:26 --> 00:36:27

And as I said, if you tell me

00:36:27 --> 00:36:30

okay, I'm not sure about my Deen because

00:36:31 --> 00:36:33

I received this feedback from some young people.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:35

No, there are many religions, many

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

ideologies

00:36:37 --> 00:36:39

and some of them were confused and say

00:36:39 --> 00:36:40

okay,

00:36:41 --> 00:36:43

how do I make sure that Islam is

00:36:43 --> 00:36:44

the right religion?

00:36:44 --> 00:36:46

There are young people in this society, in

00:36:46 --> 00:36:48

this environment who ask this question maybe in

00:36:48 --> 00:36:50

other societies too. Maybe back home we have

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

people who ask the same questions.

00:36:52 --> 00:36:54

Okay. That's okay to ask these questions. We

00:36:54 --> 00:36:56

tell them okay, there are other matters of

00:36:56 --> 00:36:59

faith that you can look into them and

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

investigate them

00:37:01 --> 00:37:04

and strengthen your faith. So use the other

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

matters of faith

00:37:06 --> 00:37:09

to prove that this matter of faith that

00:37:09 --> 00:37:11

you don't have proof for them, you don't

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

have a scientific evidence

00:37:13 --> 00:37:16

to, you know, use the other ones

00:37:16 --> 00:37:18

to prove that these ones are right. So

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

if Islam was right about these these ones,

00:37:20 --> 00:37:23

it must be right about these ones too.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:25

If I accept the Quran as a book

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, we've been talking

00:37:26 --> 00:37:28

about the Quran for 2 weeks, right? That

00:37:28 --> 00:37:29

the Quran is miraculous,

00:37:30 --> 00:37:32

talking about the miraculous aspect of the Quran

00:37:33 --> 00:37:35

and we we hamdulillah, we dealt with all

00:37:35 --> 00:37:36

the issues,

00:37:36 --> 00:37:38

all the other opinions

00:37:38 --> 00:37:40

which says that the Quran was written by

00:37:40 --> 00:37:41

prophet Muhammad

00:37:41 --> 00:37:43

or some Christians and Jews helped him

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

or

00:37:45 --> 00:37:47

he was deceived by the devil and so

00:37:47 --> 00:37:49

on and so forth. We talked about all

00:37:49 --> 00:37:50

these options, right?

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

And we

00:37:52 --> 00:37:53

were able, hamdullilah,

00:37:54 --> 00:37:56

I mean with some we believe that we

00:37:56 --> 00:37:59

have enough proofs, we have reasonable ground to

00:37:59 --> 00:38:02

believe that this book was revealed by Allah

00:38:02 --> 00:38:04

subhanahu wa ta'ala. It was not written by

00:38:04 --> 00:38:06

Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I use

00:38:06 --> 00:38:07

this knowledge

00:38:08 --> 00:38:09

to

00:38:10 --> 00:38:11

accept

00:38:11 --> 00:38:13

the matters of faith that are in the

00:38:13 --> 00:38:15

book. If I accept the Quran as a

00:38:15 --> 00:38:17

as a revelation from Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala,

00:38:17 --> 00:38:18

then I should be able to

00:38:19 --> 00:38:21

accept anything that is found in the book

00:38:21 --> 00:38:23

of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:25

Now it comes when it comes to yaqeen,

00:38:26 --> 00:38:28

we can also use the ayah in Surat

00:38:28 --> 00:38:29

Al Baqarah that I mentioned today.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:34

So those people who will be saved on

00:38:34 --> 00:38:35

the day of judgment,

00:38:35 --> 00:38:37

they believe with certainty in the hereafter.

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

Now how do we manage this kind of

00:38:40 --> 00:38:42

belief? Again, there are people who ask this

00:38:42 --> 00:38:45

question, how can I believe in something

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

I cannot see?

00:38:47 --> 00:38:49

First of all, we need to know that

00:38:49 --> 00:38:51

belief in the unseen is a test.

00:38:52 --> 00:38:55

We're being tested and a test for all

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

humanity.

00:38:57 --> 00:38:59

Right? If we're able to see Allah, if

00:38:59 --> 00:39:01

everyone is able to see Allah, then there

00:39:01 --> 00:39:02

will be no testing.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:04

And there is no point of creating Jannah

00:39:04 --> 00:39:06

and Nar and sending some people to Jannah

00:39:06 --> 00:39:08

because they are successful. They believe in Allah

00:39:08 --> 00:39:09

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, they believed in Allah Subhanahu

00:39:09 --> 00:39:11

Wa Ta'ala, accepted Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as

00:39:11 --> 00:39:14

their Lord and then therefore they deserve Jannah.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:16

And then these people they rejected,

00:39:16 --> 00:39:19

they rejected. So these are the outcomes of

00:39:19 --> 00:39:20

a test.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:23

People are being tested. This is the

00:39:23 --> 00:39:24

the number

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

number 1. This is number Yeah. I mean

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

number 1 point. Yeah. The first point that

00:39:28 --> 00:39:29

we need to to know.

00:39:30 --> 00:39:33

And the Quran has actually clearly stated this.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:41

Who created death and life to test you?

00:39:42 --> 00:39:44

Which of you is best indeed? So Allah

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

clearly

00:39:45 --> 00:39:47

told us in the Quran that we are

00:39:47 --> 00:39:48

being tested on this earth.

00:39:49 --> 00:39:51

Now when it comes to accepting belief in

00:39:51 --> 00:39:52

the unseen,

00:39:52 --> 00:39:55

people are divided into 2 groups. I'm talking

00:39:55 --> 00:39:57

about those who accept it,

00:39:57 --> 00:40:00

who believe in the unseen. They are divided

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

into 2 groups. The first group,

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

they are those who listen to their hearts.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:08

So they said, you know, I I feel

00:40:08 --> 00:40:11

that it is impossible for this universe

00:40:11 --> 00:40:13

to exist without a maker.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:16

This is their statement, this is how they

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

go about it and this is called in

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

Islam,

00:40:21 --> 00:40:23

The proof of pure nature

00:40:23 --> 00:40:25

or natural disposition.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:27

So these people are not trying to investigate

00:40:28 --> 00:40:30

and use scientific methods to prove that Islam

00:40:30 --> 00:40:33

is true religion. They don't do that. They

00:40:33 --> 00:40:34

said we,

00:40:34 --> 00:40:37

you know, we believe, we see the signs

00:40:37 --> 00:40:39

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in this universe.

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

We read the Quran, we feel that the

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

Quran is true message from Allah subhanahu wa

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

ta'ala, we believe in the message of our

00:40:44 --> 00:40:47

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu wa sallam, we are satisfied

00:40:47 --> 00:40:49

with that, I don't have problem with that.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:51

Like there was a Bedouin who was asked

00:40:51 --> 00:40:53

about his belief in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

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

Bedouin, he lived a long time. And he

00:40:55 --> 00:40:58

said he made a beautiful statement. He

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

said,

00:41:09 --> 00:41:10

So he made this big one made a

00:41:10 --> 00:41:12

beautiful statement in which he said

00:41:13 --> 00:41:16

he looked at things into his environment.

00:41:17 --> 00:41:18

He's a big one, he lives in the

00:41:18 --> 00:41:20

Arabian Peninsula, so he deals with camels,

00:41:21 --> 00:41:23

right? He looked at things in his environment.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:25

So he said camel dung

00:41:26 --> 00:41:29

indicates camels. When I see camel dung

00:41:29 --> 00:41:32

No. I know that the camels were here

00:41:32 --> 00:41:34

and they moved. They were walking in this

00:41:34 --> 00:41:36

area. This is a proof to me that

00:41:36 --> 00:41:38

some camels were in there in this area.

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

That was his proof. He said, and footprints

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

indicate travel. When I see footprints on the

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

ground,

00:41:45 --> 00:41:47

I I I I I feel that there

00:41:47 --> 00:41:48

are people who were walking in this area

00:41:48 --> 00:41:50

here. This is a proof to me that

00:41:50 --> 00:41:52

some people were walking in this area.

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

He said, so the sky

00:41:55 --> 00:41:56

with its constellation,

00:41:57 --> 00:41:58

that is his statement,

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

and the seas

00:42:06 --> 00:42:07

with their waves

00:42:08 --> 00:42:08

and the

00:42:09 --> 00:42:10

earth with its pathways,

00:42:11 --> 00:42:13

do they not indicate the all knowing, the

00:42:13 --> 00:42:15

all wise? Al-'alimul kabir.

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

So he looked at the environment around him

00:42:18 --> 00:42:19

and he was able to conclude

00:42:19 --> 00:42:22

that this universe is a proof that Allah

00:42:22 --> 00:42:23

subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:42:23 --> 00:42:26

exists. And this is what the Quran does

00:42:26 --> 00:42:27

most of the time. The Quran

00:42:28 --> 00:42:30

appeals to the intelligence and the inner thoughts

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

of people

00:42:33 --> 00:42:34

encouraging them to use

00:42:35 --> 00:42:36

basic logic

00:42:37 --> 00:42:39

basic logic and fitra

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

and reason to arrive a state of yaqeen,

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

a state of certainty

00:42:44 --> 00:42:47

in faith. For example, Meghrin, if we take

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

the ayah in Surat Al I Imran

00:42:55 --> 00:42:56

So Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said in this

00:42:56 --> 00:42:59

Ayat 1 19 in Surat Al-'Al Imran, indeed

00:42:59 --> 00:43:00

in the creation of the heavens and the

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

earth and the alternation between night and day

00:43:03 --> 00:43:06

are signs for those people of understanding.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:09

This Ayah, someone who doesn't have knowledge

00:43:10 --> 00:43:12

or his knowledge is limited, whose knowledge is

00:43:12 --> 00:43:14

limited might read it and I find it

00:43:14 --> 00:43:17

very beautiful, right? The ayat talks about the

00:43:17 --> 00:43:18

creation of the heavens and the earth and

00:43:18 --> 00:43:21

the alternation between night and day. He could

00:43:21 --> 00:43:25

be satisfied with this knowledge, simple knowledge and

00:43:25 --> 00:43:27

say, I believe in that. I believe these

00:43:27 --> 00:43:29

are signs that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala exists,

00:43:29 --> 00:43:30

right?

00:43:30 --> 00:43:32

But someone else who had knowledge, he's a

00:43:32 --> 00:43:34

scientist, he might look into it and he

00:43:34 --> 00:43:36

may study heavens and the, you know, planets

00:43:36 --> 00:43:37

and stars

00:43:37 --> 00:43:39

and he will he will be able to

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

measure the distance between stars and between planets

00:43:42 --> 00:43:45

and talking about galaxies and Milky ways and

00:43:45 --> 00:43:46

what it contains.

00:43:46 --> 00:43:48

He might just study he he could be

00:43:48 --> 00:43:49

someone who is

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

a geologist, who studied the Earth and how

00:43:52 --> 00:43:54

the Earth is, you know, different,

00:43:54 --> 00:43:56

you know, layers of the Earth and so

00:43:56 --> 00:43:58

on and so forth. So he might use

00:43:58 --> 00:43:59

this Ayah

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

but he might give it he look into

00:44:02 --> 00:44:03

it from a different

00:44:03 --> 00:44:04

angle,

00:44:05 --> 00:44:07

right? From a different angle and he might

00:44:07 --> 00:44:10

use this ayah also as proof that Allah

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

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:44:12 --> 00:44:14

exists. So these people,

00:44:14 --> 00:44:16

they said, I feel the presence of God.

00:44:16 --> 00:44:18

I feel that the Quran is true messenger

00:44:18 --> 00:44:20

from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. This is Dalil

00:44:20 --> 00:44:22

al Fitra. Because they say, I believe in

00:44:22 --> 00:44:23

my brain even though I'm not able to

00:44:23 --> 00:44:26

see it. I believe that I have a

00:44:26 --> 00:44:28

heart even though I'm not able to see

00:44:28 --> 00:44:30

it. I believe in love, love,

00:44:31 --> 00:44:33

hatred, you know, human feelings. They are not

00:44:33 --> 00:44:34

tangibles.

00:44:34 --> 00:44:37

So these are the the basic proofs that

00:44:37 --> 00:44:39

these people use. They said they are not

00:44:39 --> 00:44:41

tangibles. They are not able to see love.

00:44:41 --> 00:44:43

I'm not able to yeah, I can I

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

can feel

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

it? I feel I feel it when when

00:44:46 --> 00:44:48

someone is showing love, when someone is showing

00:44:48 --> 00:44:50

hatred, when someone is doing this or this.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:52

But they said these are not tangible things,

00:44:52 --> 00:44:54

I cannot prove them

00:44:54 --> 00:44:55

with a physical proof.

00:44:56 --> 00:44:56

Right?

00:44:57 --> 00:44:58

So but

00:44:59 --> 00:45:00

these are the proofs that they use. The

00:45:00 --> 00:45:03

second group, they are those as I said

00:45:03 --> 00:45:04

who use

00:45:04 --> 00:45:05

you know, intellectual

00:45:05 --> 00:45:08

inquiry and they like to investigate and ask

00:45:08 --> 00:45:10

questions, that's fine. There is nothing wrong with

00:45:10 --> 00:45:11

that.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:13

Ibrahim alaihis salam who is a great messenger

00:45:13 --> 00:45:14

of Allah

00:45:14 --> 00:45:16

asked for an extra

00:45:16 --> 00:45:18

proof. You know the ayah in Surat Al

00:45:18 --> 00:45:19

Baqarah,

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

right?

00:45:20 --> 00:45:22

He asked and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said,

00:45:22 --> 00:45:23

Awalim taught me,

00:45:24 --> 00:45:26

do you not believe? He said, Bella, I

00:45:26 --> 00:45:28

believe but I want for my heart to

00:45:28 --> 00:45:29

be to be assured.

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

So

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

the Islam

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

welcomes

00:45:33 --> 00:45:37

intellectual inquiry, scientific research. There is no contradiction

00:45:37 --> 00:45:40

between Islam and between science. The contradiction that

00:45:40 --> 00:45:42

exists now between science or the gap between

00:45:42 --> 00:45:44

science and faith, it was created

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

in the medieval ages

00:45:46 --> 00:45:47

in Europe.

00:45:47 --> 00:45:48

It is the outcome

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

of this conflict that existed between the church

00:45:51 --> 00:45:53

and between scientific community

00:45:53 --> 00:45:56

in the medieval ages, in the middle ages

00:45:56 --> 00:45:59

in Europe. And Mushkilah, the problem is these

00:45:59 --> 00:46:01

people apply this same concept

00:46:01 --> 00:46:02

to all,

00:46:03 --> 00:46:04

you know, religious.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:09

They included Islam and you know everything is

00:46:09 --> 00:46:10

included

00:46:10 --> 00:46:12

and they believe now that there is many

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

of them. They believe that there is

00:46:14 --> 00:46:17

conflict between science and faith. So in Islam,

00:46:17 --> 00:46:19

we don't have this problem.

00:46:20 --> 00:46:23

Now as I said, Masa'ilul Ghayb, there are

00:46:23 --> 00:46:25

things that you cannot prove them through scientific

00:46:25 --> 00:46:27

research like the attributes of Allah Subhanahu Wa

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

Ta'ala,

00:46:28 --> 00:46:30

The names of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. These

00:46:30 --> 00:46:31

are matters of aqidah. The only way you

00:46:31 --> 00:46:33

know them is through the Quran or the

00:46:33 --> 00:46:35

Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa

00:46:35 --> 00:46:38

sall. The day of judgment and all the

00:46:38 --> 00:46:40

events starting with the grave, what will happen

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

in the grave to the person when he

00:46:42 --> 00:46:43

passes away

00:46:44 --> 00:46:47

and the way we will be resurrected,

00:46:47 --> 00:46:48

the way we stand up in front of

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, the way we will

00:46:50 --> 00:46:53

be taken to account, a Surat, the bridge,

00:46:54 --> 00:46:57

Jannah, Naar, all these matters, you will never

00:46:57 --> 00:46:59

be able to prove them through a scientific

00:46:59 --> 00:47:00

method.

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

These are matters

00:47:02 --> 00:47:04

of Almal Ghayd, the unseen and you have

00:47:04 --> 00:47:07

to believe them. As I said, the journey

00:47:07 --> 00:47:08

of Al Isra'ul Mi'raj,

00:47:09 --> 00:47:12

the second coming of 'Isa alaihi sallam. Someone

00:47:12 --> 00:47:14

told me how can a human being do

00:47:14 --> 00:47:14

this?

00:47:15 --> 00:47:17

Right? 'Isa alaihi sallam coming from heaven to

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

earth

00:47:18 --> 00:47:20

and the answer is easy. We're not talking

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

about the power of 'Isa, we're talking about

00:47:22 --> 00:47:23

the power of

00:47:24 --> 00:47:26

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. It's very simple.

00:47:26 --> 00:47:28

It is Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala who created

00:47:28 --> 00:47:30

this universe, is able to take Isa

00:47:30 --> 00:47:32

to make him sleep there or

00:47:32 --> 00:47:34

O Allahu Alam? I don't know. We don't

00:47:34 --> 00:47:36

know what he's doing there. Is he asleep

00:47:36 --> 00:47:37

there

00:47:37 --> 00:47:40

or is he alive? Allahu Alam, what kind

00:47:40 --> 00:47:42

of life he has, but we know we

00:47:42 --> 00:47:44

have enough proofs in the sunnah of our

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

Messenger sallallahu alaihi wa sallam that Isa will

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

come back at the end of

00:47:48 --> 00:47:50

at the end of time. He is one

00:47:50 --> 00:47:51

of the major signs.

00:47:52 --> 00:47:55

So these are matters of faith that cannot

00:47:55 --> 00:47:57

be confirmed through scientific research.

00:47:57 --> 00:47:59

Now there are some other

00:48:00 --> 00:48:02

matters of faith that we can Insha'Allah

00:48:02 --> 00:48:05

investigate them like scientific information in the Quran,

00:48:05 --> 00:48:07

feel free to investigate it.

00:48:09 --> 00:48:11

And the Quran is challenging people. Try to

00:48:11 --> 00:48:12

find a mistake in the Quran.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:15

Try to find a mistake in the Quran.

00:48:17 --> 00:48:19

So the scientific information that is found in

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

the Quran and the Sunnah,

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

maybe some of it

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

cannot be confirmed,

00:48:25 --> 00:48:28

scientifically cannot be confirmed that means scientists were

00:48:28 --> 00:48:29

not able to confirm it,

00:48:30 --> 00:48:31

right?

00:48:31 --> 00:48:34

Like Methanen for example, Rasool Allah he said

00:48:34 --> 00:48:37

any human being has 3 360 joints.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:39

Our scientists, they have a debate. Some of

00:48:39 --> 00:48:40

them, they said 300,

00:48:41 --> 00:48:42

anything between 300 to 400.

00:48:43 --> 00:48:44

Some scientists

00:48:44 --> 00:48:46

from Japan, they said 360, the way Rasool

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

Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, but they're

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

saying, oh, it was actually a Chinese

00:48:53 --> 00:48:54

concept. Chinese

00:48:55 --> 00:48:57

scientist, they had this long time ago. They

00:48:57 --> 00:49:00

were talking about 360 joints. So there is

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

a debate about it.

00:49:02 --> 00:49:04

But the point is, you cannot prove that

00:49:04 --> 00:49:05

Muhammad is wrong.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:07

You cannot prove that the Quran,

00:49:08 --> 00:49:10

You cannot you cannot prove that any scientific

00:49:10 --> 00:49:11

information

00:49:11 --> 00:49:14

I'm confident about my statement. Any scientific information

00:49:15 --> 00:49:16

in the Quran

00:49:16 --> 00:49:17

is wrong.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:19

Proofs of prophethood,

00:49:19 --> 00:49:21

study them. Study

00:49:23 --> 00:49:25

Investigate the life of Prophet Muhammad

00:49:27 --> 00:49:28

sallam.

00:49:28 --> 00:49:29

Miraculous

00:49:29 --> 00:49:31

the miraculous nature of the Quran, we talked

00:49:31 --> 00:49:34

about it. The concept of intelligent design

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

You know, most of the people who deal

00:49:36 --> 00:49:39

with they call them intelligent design movement, right?

00:49:40 --> 00:49:41

Most of them are not Muslims. They are

00:49:41 --> 00:49:42

Christians

00:49:44 --> 00:49:47

and we can use their actually their research

00:49:47 --> 00:49:48

with some reservation.

00:49:48 --> 00:49:50

It's a different subject. We are not going

00:49:50 --> 00:49:52

to talk about it. With some reservation we

00:49:52 --> 00:49:54

can use their material

00:49:54 --> 00:49:55

and their research.

00:49:56 --> 00:49:58

Now as I said, how can we benefit

00:49:59 --> 00:50:00

benefit from this knowledge?

00:50:01 --> 00:50:03

The basic argument as I said, we say

00:50:03 --> 00:50:06

if Islam was right about these matters then

00:50:06 --> 00:50:08

it must be right about the other matters

00:50:08 --> 00:50:10

that we don't have a scientific proof about

00:50:10 --> 00:50:10

them.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:13

Two types, if he was right about the

00:50:13 --> 00:50:15

first group of matters

00:50:16 --> 00:50:18

then he must be that Islam must be,

00:50:18 --> 00:50:20

Islam must be right about the second

00:50:21 --> 00:50:22

group. And if we are able to confirm

00:50:22 --> 00:50:24

that the Quran is the book of Allah

00:50:24 --> 00:50:26

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, then we have the obligation

00:50:26 --> 00:50:28

to believe in every letter in the Quran

00:50:29 --> 00:50:31

in every word in the Quran. All the

00:50:31 --> 00:50:32

information that is found in the book of

00:50:32 --> 00:50:34

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala, we believe in it

00:50:34 --> 00:50:37

even if we're not able to see it

00:50:37 --> 00:50:40

with our with our eyes. Now those who

00:50:40 --> 00:50:41

do

00:50:41 --> 00:50:42

scientific research,

00:50:43 --> 00:50:45

they need to do it with the right

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

attitude.

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

Our youth, our young people, we have to

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

be careful. Do it with the right attitude.

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

1st,

00:50:51 --> 00:50:53

keep looking for knowledge

00:50:54 --> 00:50:55

and humble yourself.

00:50:56 --> 00:50:57

This is number 1.

00:50:57 --> 00:50:59

Number 2, do not reject

00:51:00 --> 00:51:02

something without a valid proof.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:07

Number 3, do not look down upon those

00:51:07 --> 00:51:09

who are satisfied with Dalil al Fitra,

00:51:10 --> 00:51:13

the proof of pure nature or natural disposition.

00:51:13 --> 00:51:15

They said that I don't have to investigate.

00:51:16 --> 00:51:18

I'm fine. I'm satisfied with my faith. Do

00:51:18 --> 00:51:20

not look down upon them.

00:51:20 --> 00:51:22

Okay? This faith will help them on the

00:51:22 --> 00:51:24

day of judgement, Bayid Nillay Ta'al.

00:51:24 --> 00:51:26

Right? The Sahaba were not scientists

00:51:27 --> 00:51:28

but they accepted

00:51:29 --> 00:51:31

the deen and their faith was very strong.

00:51:31 --> 00:51:33

They had yaqeen about Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:51:33 --> 00:51:35

and Quran and the message of our Prophet

00:51:35 --> 00:51:38

Muhammad Sasif. Yes, you can tell me that,

00:51:38 --> 00:51:39

you know, they lived with the Prophet SAW

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

and they had a close relationship with the

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

Prophet SAW

00:51:43 --> 00:51:44

and First hand experience.

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

But there were people who lived with the

00:51:46 --> 00:51:47

Prophet Muhammad

00:51:48 --> 00:51:50

and they rejected the message of Islam, right?

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

So anyway,

00:51:53 --> 00:51:54

now

00:51:54 --> 00:51:57

the last thing is if you stumble upon

00:51:57 --> 00:51:58

something challenging,

00:51:58 --> 00:52:00

a challenging matter of faith,

00:52:00 --> 00:52:02

like you feel it's challenging, it's a doubtful

00:52:02 --> 00:52:03

matter,

00:52:03 --> 00:52:05

do not panic.

00:52:05 --> 00:52:07

The problem with some of our youth, they

00:52:07 --> 00:52:09

panic right away. They forget about all the

00:52:09 --> 00:52:11

proofs that they know about Islam

00:52:12 --> 00:52:14

and they just focus on that matter that

00:52:14 --> 00:52:16

they are not able to explain.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:19

And they go into what is called

00:52:19 --> 00:52:20

faith crisis.

00:52:21 --> 00:52:23

You don't need to do that.

00:52:23 --> 00:52:26

Take your time, take your time and study

00:52:26 --> 00:52:29

and ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to help

00:52:29 --> 00:52:31

you and Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala will open

00:52:31 --> 00:52:33

the doors of mercy for him and he

00:52:33 --> 00:52:34

will open the doors

00:52:35 --> 00:52:37

of knowledge for you. You know,

00:52:37 --> 00:52:39

when I started, I was talking about Quran

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

in the last 2 weeks.

00:52:41 --> 00:52:43

We're talking about the the misconception

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

that says

00:52:45 --> 00:52:47

or the claim that says

00:52:48 --> 00:52:49

some Jews and Christians

00:52:50 --> 00:52:53

must have helped the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:52:53 --> 00:52:54

sallam to write the book.

00:52:55 --> 00:52:56

I got a new idea

00:52:57 --> 00:52:58

about, you know,

00:52:59 --> 00:53:00

the issue of

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

him alaihis salatu wasalam being married to multiple

00:53:04 --> 00:53:06

wives in Madinah. This is something that of

00:53:06 --> 00:53:08

course it will cross your

00:53:09 --> 00:53:11

mind, you will see people talking about it

00:53:11 --> 00:53:12

on social media.

00:53:13 --> 00:53:15

How come he was allowed to get married

00:53:15 --> 00:53:17

more than 4 wives? And this is something

00:53:17 --> 00:53:18

that happened

00:53:19 --> 00:53:20

in the city of Medina.

00:53:21 --> 00:53:22

So I did a research about it long

00:53:22 --> 00:53:24

time and I was satisfied with the result

00:53:24 --> 00:53:25

of my research,

00:53:26 --> 00:53:28

but I got a new proof,

00:53:28 --> 00:53:29

a new argument

00:53:30 --> 00:53:32

while studying Quran just recently.

00:53:34 --> 00:53:37

Studying this claim of people claiming that they

00:53:37 --> 00:53:38

are Jews. Because Rasool Allah sallallahu alaihi wa

00:53:38 --> 00:53:41

sallam had 2 lives. Everyone has 2 lives,

00:53:41 --> 00:53:41

right?

00:53:42 --> 00:53:44

You have your private life with your wife

00:53:44 --> 00:53:46

and your children and the second one is

00:53:47 --> 00:53:48

your public life, right?

00:53:49 --> 00:53:51

In his public life, he is with the

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

Sahaba, with people outside.

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

The Sahaba did not see a Jewish man

00:53:56 --> 00:53:58

or a Christian man come and helping him

00:53:58 --> 00:53:59

to write the Quran.

00:54:01 --> 00:54:03

If this is something that happened in front

00:54:03 --> 00:54:05

of their eyes, they would have told us

00:54:05 --> 00:54:07

about it. His enemies would actually tell us

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

about it.

00:54:08 --> 00:54:09

It. That, Yeah, I

00:54:10 --> 00:54:12

saw this guy helping him to write the

00:54:12 --> 00:54:12

Quran.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:15

There is no claim. There is no even

00:54:15 --> 00:54:17

non Muslims during that time did not make

00:54:17 --> 00:54:18

this claim.

00:54:18 --> 00:54:20

Now what we are left with what?

00:54:20 --> 00:54:21

Private life.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:24

Private life, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala allowed him

00:54:24 --> 00:54:26

because it was a a we had Jewish

00:54:26 --> 00:54:27

communities in Medina.

00:54:28 --> 00:54:30

But some people say he must have taken

00:54:30 --> 00:54:33

some knowledge from Jewish people in Medina. He

00:54:33 --> 00:54:35

allowed him in Medina to get married with

00:54:35 --> 00:54:35

9

00:54:36 --> 00:54:38

wives. So all these wives will testify

00:54:39 --> 00:54:42

that he was not hiding anything at home.

00:54:42 --> 00:54:45

He was not receiving secretly some people at

00:54:45 --> 00:54:47

home, some Jewish or Christian people coming to

00:54:47 --> 00:54:50

his house and teach him about the Quran.

00:54:51 --> 00:54:52

And of course, you know, as I said,

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

we can argue for these multiple wives in

00:54:54 --> 00:54:56

different I talked about it in the in

00:54:56 --> 00:54:58

in Jum'ah. We don't have time to talk

00:54:58 --> 00:55:00

about it. I want to give you 10

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

minutes because today is Friday

00:55:02 --> 00:55:04

and dua is accepted now. I want to

00:55:04 --> 00:55:06

give you 10 minutes before the Adhan to

00:55:06 --> 00:55:08

make dua and tomorrow is Arafah. I want

00:55:08 --> 00:55:10

you to prepare yourself for Arafah.

00:55:10 --> 00:55:11

Okay. So

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

again,

00:55:13 --> 00:55:15

as I said, the conclusion is

00:55:16 --> 00:55:19

if you face anything that you believe is

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

challenging

00:55:20 --> 00:55:22

or it's a difficult matter of faith,

00:55:23 --> 00:55:24

do not panic,

00:55:24 --> 00:55:27

Take your time. Ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:55:27 --> 00:55:29

to help you. Wallahi, you will

00:55:30 --> 00:55:31

you will reach a conclusion

00:55:32 --> 00:55:34

and you will be happy, you'll be satisfied.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:37

Just seek keep seeking knowledge. There are matters

00:55:37 --> 00:55:39

empty now, I don't understand them but I

00:55:39 --> 00:55:40

have enough proofs

00:55:41 --> 00:55:43

that my faith is a true faith.

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

I have

00:55:47 --> 00:55:49

I don't I don't understand them but I

00:55:49 --> 00:55:51

believe in them because they are mentioned in

00:55:51 --> 00:55:54

the Quran, they are mentioned in authentic hadith.

00:55:54 --> 00:55:56

But I don't understand the concept of

00:55:56 --> 00:55:58

I have different interpretation,

00:55:59 --> 00:56:01

I'm not sure which one is right

00:56:01 --> 00:56:03

but I don't have doubt about my faith

00:56:03 --> 00:56:05

because I have enough proofs.

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

Enough proofs that my faith

00:56:08 --> 00:56:09

is

00:56:10 --> 00:56:12

true religion, is the deen of Allah subhanahu

00:56:12 --> 00:56:14

wa ta'ala. I have no doubt that Muhammad

00:56:14 --> 00:56:16

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was true messenger of

00:56:16 --> 00:56:18

Allah and I have no doubt that the

00:56:18 --> 00:56:20

Quran was revealed by Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:56:20 --> 00:56:23

Enough proofs. So when I come to a

00:56:23 --> 00:56:25

mess allah, one matter, I don't understand it,

00:56:25 --> 00:56:27

I accuse my limited knowledge.

00:56:28 --> 00:56:31

I don't start doubting my death my my

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

my my faith.

00:56:32 --> 00:56:34

I don't doubt my faith because I have

00:56:34 --> 00:56:36

problem with 1 masala.

00:56:36 --> 00:56:39

I forget about all the other masalaal, all

00:56:39 --> 00:56:41

the other matters that I have enough proofs.

00:56:42 --> 00:56:45

They are Masha'Allah strong arguments about my Deen

00:56:45 --> 00:56:47

in favor of my Deen. I forget about

00:56:47 --> 00:56:47

them

00:56:48 --> 00:56:50

and I just get stuck with this one

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

Masa'ala

00:56:50 --> 00:56:51

and I start

00:56:52 --> 00:56:54

having this what is called faith crisis.

00:56:55 --> 00:56:58

So this is something that is not reasonable,

00:56:58 --> 00:56:59

we're not supposed to do it

00:57:00 --> 00:57:02

and come keep coming to the halakat listening,

00:57:02 --> 00:57:05

seeking knowledge and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will

00:57:05 --> 00:57:07

bless you with fiqh

00:57:07 --> 00:57:08

That's Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:57:09 --> 00:57:10

when

00:57:11 --> 00:57:12

you eliminate ta'weel. Tomorrow

00:57:13 --> 00:57:15

is a great day, Ikhwan. Try to take

00:57:15 --> 00:57:16

advantage of it.

00:57:19 --> 00:57:21

The best dua is the dua that is

00:57:21 --> 00:57:23

made on the day of Arafah.

00:57:23 --> 00:57:25

Tomorrow is Arafah. If you can come to

00:57:25 --> 00:57:26

the Masjid, pray salat al fajr,

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

stay after Fajr.

00:57:28 --> 00:57:31

Sisters, you can pray at home and stay

00:57:31 --> 00:57:32

after Fajr, don't go to bed, make Dhikr

00:57:32 --> 00:57:33

Dua.

00:57:33 --> 00:57:35

The best dua is the dua that you

00:57:35 --> 00:57:38

will make tomorrow, inshaAllah. You can prepare your

00:57:38 --> 00:57:39

list of dua tonight.

00:57:40 --> 00:57:42

You can include Jannah, include your children, your

00:57:42 --> 00:57:45

family, brothers and sisters in Palestine.

00:57:45 --> 00:57:48

So have your list prepared for tonight. Now

00:57:48 --> 00:57:50

it could be a time

00:57:50 --> 00:57:52

that dua will be accepted and Rasulullah He

00:57:52 --> 00:57:54

said there is a time every Friday in

00:57:54 --> 00:57:56

which Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala accept dua and

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

some sahaba used to believe it is at

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

the end of the day. So we have

00:58:00 --> 00:58:02

maybe 10 minutes before Maghrib.

00:58:02 --> 00:58:04

Try to take advantage of your time, make

00:58:04 --> 00:58:06

dua, prepare yourself for tomorrow.
