Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to Sleeman Kathira but a how the word of water Illa Abdullah Alia and all them are handled
in the Roca are in my nephew and well the spanwise sandwich could do that and will supplement along that aluminum. I have an author and a boomer Olympian was in the INMO aura visit near Edma. well studied Armada see the Mohammed one earlier Savio send them to steam and cathedra were handed in diehard Braun Amin alum in a circuit photography that kita Nia John
Nora UNFI akubra. And
this is Alibaba Thani.
They grow as an asset module that one will know that Linsanity minha. So it's mentioning the edge NAS are the geniuses of created things, and the place of the human being amongst them. So
Jin says, is an Arabic word that is probably related to genus.
Sometimes you get these strange
linguistic coincidences, but very often, there is relationships as certainly in the Indo European languages, but when you get into the Semitic languages, I think it's a little more difficult, but it's probably related. So Jen says, you basically have
the genus is is something that it's it's covers a lot of different things. So like, in tools, if you look at tools as a genus, then you have all these different species under the genus of tools. So if you look at creative things, our minds are designed to categorize things to place them into categories is one of the things that the human mind does it categorizes? And so we put things together now, people will categorize things differently. And you can have some differences of opinions about these, but generally, there's a logic to categorization so he says nominal berita Anna hood watchable was Rudy. Allah the Lhasa bobbidi. Boo the Heber who was Suburban. Cali Masood.
Well Kunal Masood, and Minho will be here to Anna whoo hoo. When module dato Bhavani and Amara CODATA La Jolla to when mass will set a superior to who is Shadow Jota Adeline Mac Colette's, a little witty public Asia the hidden masu SATA, Sofia Tikka Maria and Owen Mahara kala Jota Anna column from a low Wirkkala, a gdb Moroka era Yama PM.
So he says know that the baddie and Allah one of the names of Allah is Al Badie. So he's a hot appleberry And more so where the help is the Asiad from Lashay comes into so these are describing different stages of creation because Allah creates things up walk in stages. I mean, he says be in it is. But his sunnah is that things are created in stages, like the human journey, and even the human being the first human being Adam, and they sent him and he'll get into that. So
and then the most so where is the one who actually brings the form of the thing out? So the basic materials created, and then from that material begins to emerge into different things. And from those different things, the speciation happens. So Allah, you saw widow, so he's at hot, appleberry, and Musa were. And so he says that he's at wotja, but will jute. This term is from even seen as is the first one that uses this term. And the idea behind it because the dominant
theological position of our own Ma, is that, that every win this is the argument from contingency, that when you look at things created things that are contingent, in other words, they're from the realm of possibilities. They don't have to have existed. They exist based on something else. So like we weren't here, and now we're here. Before we were here, our parents were here. And then before they were here, our grandparents and then our great grandparents, if you go back some people knew their great grandparents. But if you get great, great grandparents, it's very rare that somebody would have ever known their great great grandparents. But the basic idea is that we were nothing and
now we're a thing. So what was that contingent upon what what what did it rest upon it rested upon a Maharajah that brings us into existence that decides that we will come into existence. And so the position of the Muslims is that
like the Christians and the Jews, that creation is x and the Hello, it came out of nothing. And for it to come out of nothing means that it's it's contingent. And and so what is watch it but it was you because this is Moonkin attitude it's contingently exist and it's the because it could exist or it could not exist both possibilities existed before it came into existence.
Just like a unicorn a unicorn exists in our mind, nobody's ever seen a unicorn as far as we know, but somebody imagined it. So you can imagine things but then imagining a horse with a horn is not that
far fetched because there are many animals that have horns, right? I mean, even a rhinoceros basically has that horn there. So you can imagine a horse with a horn, like a narwhal is a whale with a horn that actually exists. But for a unicorn to come into existence in reality, it would need somebody to bring that not in the realm of imagination, but in the realm of actualization. So Allah is watching, but it will shoot because he's the only existent reality that is not contingent upon something else. So he's necessarily existing, he exists out of necessity. Everything else exists out of contingency, but he exists out of necessity. He's wiser, but it was rude. And so he said, he
because he is the suburb and we use this majaz and you know, the suburb, he's he's the the suburb of every existent thing, right? Because everything is Musab, it came in with us, there's some Illa behind it, some some cause. And not in we use these terms very carefully in theology, because of the problem of, you know, calling like God, the first cause in the sense of a cause and effect relationship. So he he is Subbable Cooley was Mojo, then we're cooler Mojo than for men who were the he is from him and by him. In other words, it em it emanates from his con. Right, it comes out of Allah's creative power. And it's be it can only be through him. Right? He's the he's the means by
which we come into existence. He is the reality behind our existence. The means is the material that he creates first, and then brings us out of that.
So then he says,
one module data, but there's two types of created things, the Mapa lateral, we're the celestial intelligible goals. So there are things that that are understood in, we comprehend them, and they're intelligible. They're immaterial. Like angels, angels are not material. They can take form but they're not actual material beings, their image, their spiritual beings. So substance, when you look at substance, there's material substance in an immaterial substance, so they have substance, but it's immaterial. So that's those are the collateral we're and then there's the mass who said a Sofia, they're the terrestrial sensible things that we can actually see and touch and feel. And
that's the realm that we exist in down here. But then we go into like the Mallacoota we go into, we have access to dream worlds true dreams. So we go into other worlds. So we know there's other dimensions that are intelligible, but they're not. We don't experience them by sense Soria, we experienced them through the medium of our minds. And then he says that
what you just do to Annalen collateral coverage at Heelan Massa, so those celestial intelligible goals were created before the trestle. This is why Imam Allah pani says
funder elastica, Thurman, Taka Lila animal we thought mercifully to just be soon and video, but they elected me what I can be accommodated. Atomy will call images and they will add more pathologists to help them so he says in Johanna Tauheed, that look into yourself first. That's where you begin, if Debbie Neff Sica, and then look into the because Ibrahim was told to look into the mela code of the heavens in the earth that we have access to that through understanding. Think about where things come from because all of this we see like you see a tree under the tree is all these roots that we don't see the only time we see the roots is when the trees uprooted. Right? Like the wind come
and it knocks the tree over and then you see these roots, or you got a mudslide. And then you see this whole root structure. That's the unseen world. So there's a whole source of this world that we're in, that comes from the unseen, that we don't see. But it's real. It's called an ape. Even the material scientists know that most of the universe, I mean, they actually say around 95% of the universe is dark matter, we don't see it, they know it's there. But we don't see it. So it's just like the light spectrum. Nobody before we had access to infra and ultra red light, nobody knew that there were other lights, hummingbirds see colors, we don't see they have actually access to colors
that we don't have access to based on their eyes. So even in the physical world, there are things that are unseen, that now we can measure, because we have material technology that enables us to measure them, we have microscopes. So we see this whole, unseen world that was hidden from us before, now we see it. So people in
you know, the ancients understood these things. I mean, dragons, where did Dragons come from? You know, those, it's all comes from going deep inside through meditation through going inside, they saw things, there's sea creatures, we don't even know about their sea creatures that have never been seen before. In the ocean, that we don't even know about. I mean, that for a long time, they didn't even think the giant squid existed, then they found the marks of it on whales, because there's a fight between whales and giant squid in the, in the ocean.
It's only recently that they, they had, they thought they were sailors wives tales about these giant squid, but these giant squid exists. So just like in the scene world, there's all these unseen things that people thought were wives tales, and then you find out later that they actually believe in them, that's probably not a politically correct thing to say wives tales,
will say husbands tales.
So, so so.
So then he says, so he says on the rail and Africa thumb and tequila Alamelu we then go to the celestial realm, and then go to the lower around this terrestrial realm tigit Be useful now on the DL HECM you will see a creation with wisdom, you know, no Sesia BIA then haccombe at
this is a
this is a warp and, and wove of wisdom, by a hand an all powerful hand.
New Sesia be HECM in creation, it's been woven with wisdom by the Divine Weaver's hand. And people, you know, they don't see the patterns because they're not looking. But if you start looking, you'll see the patterns. So then he says that the it's ruya and this is Shiva Tamriel. For the students here, you know, when it's put into the mezzanine and module, generally, it means that it has some weakness in it in the narration. So he's saying that it's been related, that that the first thing that Allah created was the pen and column,
the mullah and then the lower and then the tablet. And Allah said to it, add Bhima, hookah Indonesia, Yama, piano, right, what is going to be existent until the end of time. And so that law had my full is the matrix. Everything is written in that note on my phone. And one of the things about the modern world which are very interesting, is that the,
you know, we now have in our hand these these, these telephones, that are like Aloha. And there's all the it's everything in there. It's all my fault.
It's all my fault. You can just click on and look up anything. You want. The theory of relativity, just clicking on they'll explain it to equals MC squared, and then they'll give a whole you can even read what Einstein said about it. It's all there. You can look up on any Hadith maktabah. Sharmila, you can look up any Tafseer it's all there on this lower. And when jobs first introduced it, he introduced it with the law of Moses. That was on when he when he first revealed it he showed the lower and so here's the law had my food in our hand, and we don't think Allah has all the information, everything we've ever done every because that law that you have walking around with you
can tell you where you were if you if it was with you. It'll tell you where you were what store you went in now
The police use it to track people if they were there or not. They'll know if you're in an accident whether they be on your phone or not.
So this is all this is all material sciences that is has achieved this. And we don't think that Allah subhanaw taala can't
monitor everything. Can't Allah says that the angels are writing everything down. They're recording is the ostensive phone. I mean, they're literally recording everything.
Right? They're recording everything if he keeps having our own in a digital book. I mean, Allah uses that term, monochrome. Rockem is digit. Macomb is digitalized. So it's a book. That is it's it's a book that everything is written in it. It's a numbered book.
And so Allah is showing all this n 01 On Off. I mean, that's how it's all done with 01. There's only one and zero, there's Allah and nothing. Everything else is zero. So everything's recorded now like this. And so we're in this world, where all these signs are so manifest, and yet people are more heedless than ever. The ancients didn't have any of the signs that we have. And they were more aware more present with God. So then he says, what do we know about oh, Mahara Cullotta Anna Lacan. So this is also
very weak, but it's related. And
you know, some of them they don't.
They consider it not to be, but anyway, it's related, and he's using it in my metaphor, xiety. Also, in the end of his catabolism, he has a whole section on the importance of the apple. So the apple is very important. We have apple, an apple, reason and revelation. Reason is very important, without without reason, we have no access to Revelation. So Allah has given us an app, and we're not more articulate. So the article is, is is central in our tradition, but the revelation is necessary, the monetization, I'd actually have a view that the Ockel can reach truth, without revelation. Our tradition says no, that there's too many blind spots in the intellect, there's too many. And there
are certain things that it could never know. It could never work out except through Revelation. But it's important and so he says, that he's Allah said to the cupboard for Abeta, the motto at Bear for algebra. So he said, Come, and it came and then he said, Go and it went. And then Allah said in this tradition, what is it he would get Addy Ma, hudec to HALCON, Accra Maria Minka Vika who are who will be karate or Vika, or they could throw up. So by you I, I reckon, and by so in other words, I punish and I reward and and I withhold or prevent and upon you is my reward and my punishment. So I take and I give, I withhold and I give throw up and
what a cent Murata Baraka how Hola Hola. Hola bacteria. So now he's going to move into a philosophical position, which this is a very debated position in the amongst the philosophers and things about the Apple Oh, well, what they call the apple Oh, well, so.
But he's obviously inclines towards this position. So he's Ballard, Charles will be here at Johanna and Sharif. So it's indicating that this is a a noble essence, and who timber it's a little colored by shade bacteria and from it emanate the human intellect. So there is a view that the aka the this first intellect is is where abstraction comes from that without it, we would not be able to abstract. So to use a really poor analogy. It's like the hard drive for the software of our individual intelligences. So it's like the cloud. So we're tapping into this. And that's how we're able to abstract and get beyond what the animals are in the animals are only in perception. They
perceive, but we conceive, so we can actually conceptualize. And this is something that differentiates us from other creatures, so you're able to unhook, but UCLA was the first intellect come up with variables. So he means the philosophers are Coleman and Accuro, 100 rebuttal to an element of the core for haberle Aha, well, lo acronym and some of them said that the intellect here refers to it's an expression for the aforementioned pen in the previous
Hubber tradition. Well, lo Arnhem and Allah knows best so he's, he's saying Allahu Anam he, he's not really taking a position here, but he does indicate that he inclines towards that position of Aloka load
from OSHA, the load
To add a summer our Rowhani yet so after that Allah made the heavens and all of the the immaterial substances, the spiritual matters Alladhina Elias tech Purana and a bed at what are you stasiun
excuse me, so they are neither
puffed up with pride from from from devotion to God, nor do they weary of that devotion, they don't get tired. So these are creatures that are created solely for the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. They don't have Shaohua they don't have animosity. They have pure spirit, the angelic realm.
Well, yeah, the who the Hadean, Asha, and I submitted that. And so his creation of all of these things is by way of evident, which is unparalleled creativity. In other words, if.is is hating me Thal and masback. There is no previous template. So all of human creativity is from previous templates. Like, whenever they do aliens or any of these fantasy things, there's always Why do they have hands and faces and they speak and because they can only work from pre existing templates, they cannot conceptualize anything outside of some type of experience they've had.
Whereas Allah can do from from out of Haiti without in Messiah, there's no pre pre pre ordained template, there's there's nothing that Allah is working on. There's no iterative process where me I'll try this or I'll try that it's if dy by dt was somehow what you would or so the Budhia is the one the Originator of the heavens in the earth without any prior existent thing to suggest to God, what he should do what God should do.
So what if Dahu IJA to Shayla and che and Mojo demon Pablo? So it's it is that is is to create a thing without any prior thing
that enables that thing to come into existence law and shaitan module then mental Kabelo it's not from some pre existing thing, or idea or template, the Mahara Arcana orbera. So this is a pre modern type of an AI. I do think it's, it's perfectly valid. It's more poetic than it is scientific, but it's based on
experience. So So then he says, Then he created the four elements, so that the art can Alaba are the four elements, most pre modern cosmologies, believed in four or five elements. So for instance, if you go to either VEDA, if you go to the Hindu tradition, you'll find
they have these elements, if you go to the Chinese tradition, they have the five elements. If you go to the Greek tradition, they have the four elements. So there was this idea of what were the fundamental elements. I mean, now we know with the, the table of elements, that there's over 100 different types of elements there's a lot about but all of them will go back to these basic things. And so in that way, how to kind of Matan up their own. If you just look at it at a basic level, these things are true. So Adhara so like, you can say radium is an element, but it comes out of the element of fire. Right? Because it's it's it's it's heat, it's a type of radiation. So
and so that's how it auto which is heat Buddha, which is cold is the absence of heat, right Buddha, and then Rotorua which is wet or moist. And then you boosah Which is dry. So these four elements, human beings, we have these in our bodies, according to this traditional model. Foods are hot, wet, cold or dry. So for instance,
dates are hot and dry. So if you eat a lot of dates, and you're hot and dry, they'll they can they can actually create disruptions, like you can break out in rashes, things like that. This is all experimental Mudaraba as the Arab say Mauritania, they know these things very well, because I was eating a lot of dates. When I was there. Maryam kind of felt sorry for me because the food was so limited. People from the West Africa know about this. I mean, some it's amazing how
few things that people live on out in the desert. So she would get the data out and I ate a lot of dates and then I broke out and they all
Sara eating too much hot and dry. So they understood that Mogera
so then these elements were created and then the Gemma dat these the gemma.in the peripheries tree of you have the substance and then the first thing you have is it material immaterial and then is it living or is it nonliving so if it's non living it's just mad these are called Gemma debt and then the the living is the NAM yet so then Then is it is it vegetable or animal? Right? So so the NAM Yatra the or the, the things that grow and then the high ones that are the the animal things. So these are sentient beings.
And then we'll have them up a surah three and sanea and then he completed creation with this human form.
Come out of shadow alien abuse Allah ism. So this hadith, already, it's inside Muslim. It's actually from combat about it's one of the horror above Sahih Muslim, but it's actually from cabra bar.
And it obviously can't be taken literally. But it's about the creation is from the Iliad, because they have these beliefs also.
And the idea that human being was created on the on Joomla in the last of the day, so then he says 100 Oh, he acted on your car of EJ the CHE min che and Abloh. So when we speak about creation, most of the time, we will say that a thing comes we mentioned that thing that it comes from before it can Harken inside minute to rob so Allah created the human being from Torah from Earth. So the human being is created from Earth. And then he says we activator Keven, and then there's a composite so we're composite unlike ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in the western scholastic tradition, they say that God is simple, but that means that a little more a cup, it just means that God is not composite. There's
no hypostasis and God according to the Jews, and the Muslims, the Christians have a different view on that. But our tradition is very clear. We are radical monotheistic, and that God is one and that there's no composite nature to God, nor are there more than one God so God is neither composite in the divine nature. In other words, there's no parts called who Allahu Ahad so it negates arqiva, and it negates to add dude, neither of them and so. So then we'll lead Attica Palolo. to adult woman cliche and Hala Panozzo Janila. Allah come to the Koran from everything we created in pairs. So everything is created in pairs, even the atom, right? When you get down to that basic fundamental
structure, you'll find these pairs, these opposites Allah has created Subhanallah the hara Palace logical lamina trumpeter, woman unforeseen only mele, animal Glory be to the One who created everything in pairs. These are these are what now this term is used a lot but it's true that there binaries Allah has created things. This is a binary world. There's up there's down. It's all opposites. There's hot, there's cold, there's wet, there's dry.
Right? There's intelligence, there's stupidity, everything is impaired. Allah has put everything in pairs, even our bodies are paired. Allah has put us in these pairs. And then he made for us. Hakuna mean, I'm who's come as whaa we made from yourselves, mates pairs opposites, not the same. Opposites. I mean, that's really important. They're opposites. xojo is opposite.
The left and the right foot. They're not the same. They're opposites. They're mirror opposites, in the same way that male and female are mirror opposites. The woman when she sees the man, she sees her internal reality. When the man looks at the woman, he sees his internal reality. Men are hard on the outside, they're soft on the inside. Women are tough on the inside, but they're soft on the outside. This is the fitrah of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why women have immense capacity to bear pain. It is well known Ava has worked in medicine knows this. You get these old ladies. You do a arterial blood draw on there. I'm fine. Go ahead sweetie. You know, and then you get the big biker
you know starts crying.
I'm not making that up. I thought you you said you've seen that.
So So then. So then he says,
What annum an Akula shaitan minimum to add for time every
thing from these mukhda ads from these extraordinary unprecedented creations are complete Lennox Sophie he'd be watching there's absolutely no deficiency or defect in them for fellow Kenneth E. Noxon law della Derek and and Oksana Mobley he will sign me if there was any defect or deficiency it would indicate a defect in the move there was sanera the one who made or created them
but um and mahalo Baladi who are markable men, Chetan pakka Dr. Mellow yeah time and your corner fee next one. We have Kunal nuxalk Aria Dan Mindy Hetty, MerKiVa, Minho, lamb India Hatem Rokeby welfare, Edie? So as for the created one who is composite by nature,
for God, your terminal it's, it's possible and you couldn't be eunuchs he can have deficiency. Well, you could knock so audio been, but that that deficiency comes not from the original template, not from the original creation, it comes later. So in other words, like birth defects, all these things that happen, these are from different things that have entered into when when people don't, I mean, there's a lot of reasons for them. There's genetic reasons, but they're audit. They're not from the original. They're not from the original the way Allah created the law, create everything perfect. But then because sin enters the world because of that, and that's not to say a stuff a lot that
people that have, unfortunately, some cultures they actually believe that there's like a punishment, things like that. There's a lot of reasons now we there's environmental reasons. You can be exposed to toxins, and you get children that are born with birth defects and things like that. So this is all audit. It's not from the original creation. That's his point. So don't think the defects that you see are from God's creation. They're actually secondary effects. All right.
For Aman, mahalo Kalydeco Maracaibo machi. And then he says, What am in Yeti? Maura. Kibby you have it? What do you have a spirited move the atom minute or shall we it more are rotten, Terada facades. Yeah, Harlan for HANA. So this is an idea. I mean, I think he's referring to as what they call the Super luminary world.
You know, the movie out in the in the celestial realm are free from any possibility of corruption. So things in this world can be corrupted, even our own physical
genetics there can corruption can actually come in. So So, but he's saying that in in that higher world, there's no realm, Hannover Bell Topcon of Hadiya, they it stays in its pure state. Now, they used to think I mean, they're still in view was that everything in the heavenly world was perfect. Everything revolved in perfect circles. You had Ptolemy, who created the epicycles to explain retrograde motion and planets, because he wanted everything circle was the perfect because the circle is a perfect form, because it has no beginning and no end. So it represents in that way, a kind of symbolization of the divine reality. And that's why the circle was often used for that
effect. We you know, we make a circle around a square, which is very interesting, that when we do throw off the squared circle, right, we make a circle around a square in the thought. So that's just part of Allah's creation is that he's, he's, he's put all these mysteries into it.
And so then, what in Santo Insan, Annie, the human being is to human beings. I had no home Adam. So Adam is is the first human being. And Adam is from, most of them say it's from Obama, you know, admitted art, because he was taken from the topsoil of all the earth Allah took, and that's why we have white, black, brown, yellow, we have all these different colors red, because all of the different soils are there in Adam. And so we have what they call recessive genes. The dominant gene is dark, right? We know that so light comes out of that. So and that's why Adam was Tawny. He was dark and howa was dark, they had to have been Hawa in Arabic is one of the meanings of it, it was
very dark. So so
so so that's the First Lady will Avila Bashar, he is the father of humanity. We add him inside a NAS material better. So he
really amongst human beings, he takes the place of the seed
Allah the min one Shia Heydo from it, other others were created. So from the seed comes other seeds right
So here's the first ad body to anakata wellbeing, MCE jadco. So Allah took it upon Allah to create Adam, directly without intermediaries, he jadco What tarbiyah to who and also to
educate him, to raise him and to teach him come in Nebraska to actually be a county, ma'am and
and test you that the Mohawk to be there. So he says to IBLEES what has prevented you from prostrating or bowing down to us bowing down to what I have created with my own hand, Via de Makoto, to Anna Allama, Adam and Asma, Aquila, and Adam was taught, Allah taught Adam, all of the names. So Allah Adam, so Allah in Arabic Allah Allah is a mark. And the as we know, the cuneiform writing the original writing was actually a lemma it was to imprint into mud. And so Allah subhana wa Tada is saying that it's been imprinted in us this knowledge of naming and what naming is is naming is being able to see the universal in the particular this is the gift that Allah has given the human being is
called abstraction to do read, you generally do that Kalia managers ear, he sees the universal in the particular. And so what this is essentially Tawheed we have been created as mohideen. We are making everything one. So the Moorhead is the one who makes something one. So when we talk about book like I say, this is a book, what is a book? This is one book. But what is a book? How is it that our intellects can derive out of one particular book, the concept of book, so we can have big books, little books, fat books, skinny books, written books, picture books, Japanese books, Persian books,
Arabic books, but they're all books. What is that our ability to see the book Enos of a book, that is the ability to make many one.
And that is that that's what Adam has been taught to do.
He has been taught to make many one. So all of these attributes of God, that look like Pearl out pluralities that, in many cultures, they end up being worshipped, like Shiva and Kali, right? These are different. These are attributes of God, but they've personified into actual other than God beside God. Right? So seeing the many in the one seeing the one in the many, not the many, not getting ill hakama to cathodal, you have been distracted by multiplicity
to Katha Tada, you're distracted by multiplicity. How does Ottoman macabre until you go to the source?
Right, you're distracted. I mean to Catherine means obviously also accumulation of wealth but to Katha to Russia multiplicity is to cathode. So you're distracted by multiplicity. So Allah subhanaw taala has given us this gift that he taught Adam with Danny Balu and then his children by extension, will Mooji al Donnell batty He created them also Albury the Creator to Anna will that can Jana in sha homotopy automata anymore he was just man Yeah, Tim what who Hania but he made their their nurturing and their education by means both material and immaterial. Both material and immaterial, bodily and spiritual fell just man he cut above Wayne, so our parents are the source of our material
existence. What will Hani kill Malayaka and the immaterial is the angels that are actually they they they are the ones that make sure everything's happening properly. So they're actually with us all the time. They're our guardians, but they're also in the womb. They're making sure that everything is happening. That's meant to happen for good or ill
come out with a Hobbit or wherever you are Barina Yeoman not far so Alladhina to Ilona in sha Allah tarbiyah to come out we have rubber and where do you Kunal urbane a Yeoman not fatten to me a zero Anika 10 Tomato zero Mahabharata and the mayor bath Allahu mela can for young for Hovi who rule. So the the child and the see the Wellard
It is an Allah says Allah. Well look at this. For all these pro abortion people. The Wellard is 40 days and not far. I want them to cannot fight, weren't you a not far, like you were never not far we were all not far right?
Or by any Yeoman not far, which is the Zygarde. And it's not 40 days, this hadith is actually a more correct because there are different narrations of this hadith. So the idea of 120 has been clearly disproven by modern embryology and science will dictate if it's absolute, if it's copy, then you have to reinterpret the Hadith. If science is copy, you have to reinterpret the Hadith. So we don't have any doubt about the embryo illogical stages anymore. This is in Qatari. And so the idea that it's 120 days is just, it's even though that is the gem hora, and the vast majority, there are a limit that said 40 days, but it's clear that it's 40 days. So So here, and then Allah, so it becomes
not as I got, and then it becomes Anika. It becomes a clings to the womb. So it embeds the zygote moves down. So the fallopian tube, when the boy that comes out, and then the many comes they meet, and that is an incredible meeting. Because that is the moment of creation that Allah is bringing a new creation into existence. And all of us went through that. And when they meet immediately,
biological life begins. The boy Allah doesn't it's not biological life, the many is not biological life.
Right when they meet, biological life begins. And this is a completely unique set of genetic a sorter to Masha or Kovak in any form that he create, to to combine you. Allah says that in Quran he combined you and now they talk about combinatorial DNA, Allah combined the human being from all of the prophesy, Sam said, every child,
every single human beings, from Adam and Eve all the way down to your creation, every single one of them participated in your coming into existence. And we know that now, with material sciences, the Prophet told us that who told the prophet that animal Shirakawa so he says that,
that it becomes Annika embeds into the womb, and then it becomes a motiva in the initial stages, it looks like a chewed piece of flesh. And you can see this now it with microscopes, they, they see this looks to piece of flesh, and then it becomes after the mantra and then it becomes an alarm and Casona Allama Lama and then Allah creates a new creation, through me about the hermetic and the unfulfilled rule. So the angel brings in the rule.
And this is the beginning, I think, because the first brainwaves that we detect are around are at around seven weeks. So it's around 40 days, you see the beginning of actually brain activity. So consciousness is emerging in the human being because consciousness is from is from the raw. It a Heidi data coming out of what he counted up away in sub n fi was, ooh, that word album Allahu Taala Hakama. And because your parents are the means by which you came into existence, Allah has magnified there, right? What else I'm about the Shoukry he shook Roma and he has necessitated after giving gratitude to Allah to give gratitude to your patient to your parents. falcata Anushka Lee while you
worry de la and Marcia, to thank me and to thank your parents. And to me as your return was so me are valid even when we call the weather that's called Ebenen which, which is from
whom we're stuck on min Benito Binya, I built the building to be Hinata and the whole Jatin lil AB Majerle been al banni. So what he's saying there is very interesting. The banni didn't create the materials, he's just putting them together. So he's the source, but he's not the real source. He's just putting them together.
So now they could run announcer relative Ushi them in hell in San so to make mention of the elements in it by which the human being has come into existence, but look at alota Ana Ilana serrulata Hara caminha Adam. So he mentioned these elements that He created Adam will nipa and I know Jay I know in Santa Fe sub ADA Raja, and he mentioned that he created the human being through seven degrees. There are seven stages, while shorter era data can be more the military veteran has over Moqtada to Al hikma to and he indicates this in different places based upon
What what the wisdom of it requires? So whatever the wisdom required, Allah makes mention the auditor and if you monitor and in one place he said hot up a woman Taarab. In early Emraan he shot at an Elan Mandela. So when he said He created him from Taarab This is to indicate the very beginning the very initiation of creation is from Torah. And then he said
well the AHA methylene and then from from
mud which is the mixture of the two is a charlatan a Gemini been a Torabi one man, which now he's mixed water with Earth, right? Because we're water and earth if you look at human constituent, this constituents that make up the human being its water and earth we're about 70% water as you get older, you dry out more, but we're about 70 children have even more why we have to hydrate all the time because we're water and then we're earth were made up of the same elements. It has all these elements that you find in Earth you're going to find in the human being calcium and potassium and all these different elements. So So then thenI charlatan lol Gemini, Bina Torabi wealthy AHA Minh
hammer in Miss noon, is shot out in it Athena and mortar a year but Hawaii Atlanta Tara, you're now he's added oxygen to the mix. And it becomes Manhattan Miss noon. So it's an it's also black. So it's a black
clay that has a smell because of the oxygen. And this is an indicated because it believes when he refused to bow down to Adam one of these he says what I'm gonna bow down to something minimum, like black clay. Like he actually points out the color of the clay because he's fire and fire the hottest fire. What's it look like? Is whitefire You know, he's like very proud of his, his coloration, like he's looking. So if you want to know the alphabet, we believe is from Allah. That's one of the hallmarks is that they have no problem with color.
Either way, the prophesy Sam said the fatality out of you know, as you mean, well, early Jimena. RBN whenever the sweat Well, areas what other appealed, he went both ways. There's no preference, and he also didn't collect device. He didn't say left for that I will be the other sued. There's no preference of whites over black. He said up here, Dallas, what? Because it goes down to the individual level. I was in New York, and this man said to me, you know, he's telling me how you're you. You're.
He said, You're a recipient of white privilege. I said, I don't use those terms. He said, well, because because you benefit from it. I said, well give me an example of white privilege. You know, well, I was in a building and these two cops came in, and they and and I immediately said, Hey, I didn't do it. And one of the cops said you have the right color. He said that's white privilege. I said no, that's racism.
That's right. That's the problem is in the cop. Don't don't project that onto me. I'm not going to feel a shame the way Allah created me.
It's a big problem. But this is this is the source of it is the bliss. It's kibble. It's an arrogance in the heart.
So So then he's all he Ackerman thena lazyboy is shot at Nettleton and was Tucker Anahata 10 minute it daddy Yesler Julio, a Buddha surah. So now it's become clean lazyboy that it's ready to have form. So it's read like a potter forms the clay at a certain point, it's ready for him to make yes to prepare the clay and then he can begin to fashion what he's going to fashion. So he's saying it's been Lazar. And then will the admin sell Sodom and hemat in this noon, and then it's dried and you as if you can hear this salsa like a ringing in it.
And then finally we'll feed off of this The seventh step, the sixth stage, municipal sodden CalHFA har and then it becomes like this firing phase where it's like, ready for firing. While also be other men and not so it's ready to be fired to be put into the stove. fissara Cal has F so it becomes like hats off his is like Potter's it's the ceramic. So it's ready to be is finished to be prepared.
They say Allah has has ever seen is porcelain right? Because of the Chinese ceramic will be high the ACOA Nadia has sort of insane a phenomenal shape Anna and because of this fiery potentiality in the human being because there's there's there's fire this this force of fire. The human being has a demonic susceptibility because of the fire in the human being the human beings
susceptible to that fiery element to become like a demon.
Well Anna harden Marina del Libya Cody to Anna Huracan in Santa mon Sol, Sidon. CalHFA. Her bajada Pearl Jam in Narita. Menara I mean, look at see his system Balt is so beautiful. So he's saying and this is why Allah said
the human being Man was created from self sovereign for heart, the human being was created from this fired clay. And then immediately after it will hold up a John, and he created the jinn, there's a relationship, because we have the element of fire in us. There's a relationship, that we have a susceptibility to become like gin, like the demons
and then manage him and not what is manage him and not not Lahab you know, is is instant it's there's an instability to it. So the demons are unstable, they're not stable, right? That's why people that are under demonic influence or become
completely unstable. Right? So so it's like lab, it doesn't have any istikhara whereas we're Earth. So we have a kind of there's there's a there's a grounding to us and healthy human beings we say he's very grounded. He's always say, and for people that aren't well, you say flighty you know they're like airy. They're not you know, there's they're not grounded there's no substance, there's nothing there. Right.
So then he says
so, by mentioning the gin immediate after for nibhana, under insan fie Minar watershed pani remastered for honeymoon or not that he has demonic potentiality to the degree with which there is the effects of the fire from his original creation want to show up on that two minute marriage under the latest a Corolla who so he's from this this unstable
this unstable flame that has no grounding the minibar hello to Anna at a tech needed in San binnacle Rahi. And then Allah subhana wa Donna has reminded us of the completion of the human being, by the blowing of the spirit into him into the human being forgot to add in the hot champagne. I am creating a human being from clay either as a way to who want to talk to him and Rory the karula Who says you then
so I when I have made him and then breathe into him the rule and this is now the bowing down of the angels for how the sub Rhodora Jetta Nibali her coma Tara, so these are the seven stages that Allah has indicated just as you see, they went through the seven stages now look at this, the medalla Anna tech meeting of Siebel Illumina adapt the according to Anna Allama Adam at USMA Akula. And then he indicated the completion of the human being of the soul with knowledges and you know, area addition
by saying and we taught Adam all the names, all of them, the Medaka Benny Adam and then after that he mentions the creation of the children of Adam and also to him and the elements from which they're created. ality OSHA the Halton Banda Hana stage after stage for nipa Hana and Nason fi seven ridata chat so we are also created in seven degrees just like Adam was created in the seven degrees we are created in seven degrees
so look at the seven degrees. What up Adhara Canadian Sanam insalata Montaigne, we created the human being from a chain beginning with earth
through Madonna who know tuttavia Tirana McKean to the Mohawk no not Fatah, Anna cotton and then we made the zygote into this clinging thing.
Three for Hala canal Allah Tata Madiba and then we created for we created the Anika mandala for Haluk NAD Matata a llama and then we created the model that we llama five for Casona and a llama llama and then we covered the the the the lamb with lamb with me with flesh. We call the closed it in flesh, dementia now haha seven and then we created a new creation, another creation, a unique creation for Tabata, Colo axon Ohara pain so, bless it is God the best most beautiful of creators now look at this. It's very important first of all, Thelma and fat are both used in the Quran. Thumma is with Mahela fat is without Marla
When you have one over the other, you will take the like, if, if you have, if a narration has thumb and Fah, then the meaning is going to be far.
Right because the law has the meaning of as well. Right? So, so it's very interesting the law says, because this means that they're very close together hudec Nanana, medulla for Huracan and mudra Aidan, in fact, Therma can be actually used to be you know, you can say sad that you've been who thumb abou his his son,
his son ruled and then the father so Thelma can actually doesn't have to be 35 always has started Therma doesn't have to have talked to you in Arabic, Rafa always has started. So so it's an indication that this was quicker than is indicated by the other narrations that use them and also in Surah, that hajj, Allah uses them, but here he uses for.
For oguta anethum and Shinohara. Her ishara 10 Oh ishara two men who to add in a merger Anna Lahoma with an after he would fix it, he will not. So this is the rationality This is the new creation. This is when we become human. Before that we're vegetable and then animal. Now we're human. Right?
And this happens very early people as a human being in the womb as a human being.
They end up learning Makara for Casona now look at this famous killer Lee mother Casona a llama llama? Why did he say *a Sona a llama llama and then we closed the bones with Flash. What am your call Sahara Kunta min who? Lama he didn't say we created from it flesh come up on him in joven. Oh, like he said about the other thing. So if you look at it's all Jana hudec na hudec Anahata Kana and then he says focus on he doesn't a Filipina he says Casona and then he says kita is harder to Minho to Anna in Allah Eva Tinman Sona II. This is to a very subtle thing of Allah's creation who were under not far into Hatha Surah Taraba that the not far when it becomes eventually these bones
Thurman and sha Allah llama in Schatten Aha, and then he creates the flesh. This is a new creation laminin not for what the raw material Kiswa he made it like a cloth. Let's see, how do you live? Oh, hell insan what you just did to her, just as a human being wears a garment and he wears it out and then it's renewed like that the flesh you can cut it and you can lose a piece of it, it grows back. So he's saying Casona a llama llama because the lamb is renewed. Its renewed. It's not like the other things if you if you sever the bone, you lose the bone, but the flesh can be renewed. This is why they have grafting and all these things right. I mean, grafting is basically you get cloth from
you know, and then you add it on and it grows back.
Well irrigate the coterminal one Lachman add if you sever meat from an animal it will grow back What am you couldn't get out of me Allah the layer back up, but it's not like bones that won't be restored after they've been severed. The NPT Akiva Hakuna Matata Jimmy a nasty Unohana Perham in Sudan atom pain so what if it said how can you say that all of creation all of humanity was created from a chain beginning with mud when mahalo calm and who Adam when Adam was the one that was created doing that Oh daddy and not his children Peter into dedicado which Hain
we this can be said looked at from two different perspectives. I had the Houma I know hola mahalo aka Adam min Surat and Montaigne for odo Lilina home Minho, Aoba minha when Allah subhanaw taala created Adam from a chain from clay, his children by extension are also from that chain.
But the second with Thani and insana you to co one oh Mina, not Fateh, we thought up that the Dhamma Tom. So the human being he, who he comes out of this not for you to Konami, not for is created from this not for and then continues to grow from the blood that comes into the nourishment right from the I mean, he's in this the placenta, like he says, dumb a pump. I think I'm pumped, generally is the menstrual blood, but obviously it doesn't mean that but pumped is also flamita is also
let me optimism in Sumatra, Jen so it's also related to so he comes out, you know, it's it's out of the the pregnancy. So the very fact that it comes out of the blood of the pregnancy so it could be dumped that Donald Trump is the
Blood of the pregnancy in other words that the child has been nurtured by the mother's blood. Well, Khomeini had to cope with anti monarchy that would have he that oh, you had to go into the middle one. And so they both came from, from nourishment and nourishment comes from animals and animals get their growth from vegetables and vegetables come out of the earth. And so we're all from us with Adam and clean, you can look at it from that perspective, but even in Santa Ana, welcome and so rAdmin pain so in reality the human being is from a chain from Earth. Why and how the number hello to Anna for the unloading and sounding it up for me let the human being look at his food or her
food, and now are in now suburban and Matt Saba the Masha coconut or the Shaka fam button fer hubba. Weinbaum Acaba was a Dunoon afternoon. So look at the human being look at his food, we we poured on it water, and then we
caused it to from just split from the Earth Farm button fer hubba and then we brought forward the seed and then from that, hmm, but the bone was a tuna and the whole Bible packet and all those things that come out Makoto, to Ottawa Canadian sentiments were added to maintain the media now not fatten Thea karate McKean. And then we place that not far in a safe place. Not a place to be violated by a doctor. It's a safe place.
It's a safe place around and McKee
will go to Anna Aloha coming to robinton women not fit in the magical as whadda and he created you from Earth and then from a Nakba. And then he made you into pairs, was a hola who Phaedra Anahola who to Adam and Turabian at 100 Watch. And so he's saying again, that we he says we're from Earth, Wakata tatelman. Deanna, mentor robinton and by Sharon and tissue room, and from among God's signs that God created you from Earth. And then there you are, human beings multiply spreading everywhere
will be more than an alpha, a lady X and she and a halacha are better harkening sandeman pain the one who perfected everything that that that God created
he made it beautiful and perfect well but the insanity methane and initiated the creation of the human being from
Earth from mud was only a bit insane how Hoonah Adam and it's what is meant by human being here as Adam What do you that got bought at the at the merger Anna Anna Saruman Sudan at the mat in Maine. And then Allah says We made Adams offspring from a chain from a mountain Maheen
Mahana is contemptible, you know, it's something low. You know, it's it's like a vial fluid is a fluid that you know, I mean, somebody would be disgusted by it. So So that's and Mana is like menial work, you know, menial, menial labor, they got one of the eyeshadows and she she was obviously a true master of the Arabic language. But when when when she was asked what the profit was like in the house, she said Kenneth Chi Minh manatee Ali, he was in doing menial tasks for his family like she she didn't say she hid Mutti he she was pointing out through the language that he did things that maybe other people wouldn't think, you know, very interesting for humanity. I really like doing
those things that maybe most people wouldn't want to do. Like cleaning something that

Way in America howdy and my buddy Mustafa Rita Tenley Hickmott in a kappa toxicity Korea, V moda el de la cara haffi. What is a chakra toxicity technically, why him and Erica the mulberry community a phobia that I wish he would have gone into, but he's saying, I could go into more detail but it's not appropriate for this book.
mazing book, it's, trust me it just gets more and more intense. And then he ends it and it's,
These other photo hats that are Imams were given and these are from people that dedicate their lives to Allah and his messengers a lot is, I mean, this man dedicated his life to the book of Allah and He Allah just gave him all of these openings from the book because it's an inexhaustible book. It's it's an inexhaustible book, the meanings of the Quran will never
and they don't they don't end.
It's always something going to be new
how can the fundamentals of understanding oneself be explained to kids so they apply this learning early.
I mean, with children, you have to be careful because children first of all, for the first
several years, five or six years,
you just need to leave them in the garden that they're in. They're in a very beautiful world. I mean, you can say things you should when they start understanding things, you can you can begin to talk. I mean, we thank Allah subhanaw taala. And the children are naturally spiritual. So it's not difficult for them to understand the immaterial world. But but you also have to be easy with them the prophesy Sam said, I mean, this rewire is has
the meaning is very sound, you know, he said, Let It Go humbly submit and say now, Ali, also it's related. That Eboli Subin no play with them for for seven years. It's a time of play and believe it or not play and this one of Piaget has great insights, the pediatric psychologist who studied children,
Piaget said that their play is their work. Like they're actually working what they're doing when they play, they're actually there's really important developmental elements to their place. So play is very important.
And then they boom Lisa, Ben, what a depot humbly submit, and then begin to discipline them and train them, which means educate them, you know, a depot home because deep is also a div is the traditional name for the teacher was called a dip. Because it's tarbiyah. And Taleem is character development, as well as education. And then, and then Holly loams, the Southern and then befriend them be like a friend to them. Once they reach 14, they're moving into adulthood, and then you just have to be there for them. But they're, they need to become independent, and that in Erickson's crisis, it's identity versus identity, confusion, they need to come into their own identity as
adolescents and find out who they are. And then he said, after that, then you have to let them go. They're not yours. They have their own trajectories, they have their own lives. I mean, hopefully, if you've raised them, right, they'll love you, and they'll care about you. And they'll want to take care of you and help you and in your need, but they also have their own lives. And it's very important to recognize that so I mean, there's a lot of things that you can do with children. The prophets Isom
said men Canada or sabe affiliate Asaba. You know, if you have a child and play with the child like a child, the Prophet used to
carry has an Hosein on his back. Salatu Salam, and he loved children, obviously. And children loved the prophesies. And they loved the Prophet size. And there's so many that he visited know their
own mayor, who was the brother of Ns when his pet died. And from that they derive several fifth rulings, including you can visit people when their pets die as Zia.
But he visited him and he McFadden aware what did the pet do? Like he was making him think, like what happened? Because one of the things about pets is it introduces children into mortality. Because pets us the pets don't live as long as we do. And so pets tend to die. And then they also see animals. I mean, one of the tragedies of Western culture is they've divorced meat from from slaughter. And so people no longer slaughter meat or have any relationship with the slaughtering of meat. But it's very important. And there was a man who did a documentary in in Canada, it's very interesting. I didn't see the documentary I read about it. But it was very interesting what he said
because he decided to only eat meat for one year that he raised and slaughtered.
And one of the things that the farmers that he bought the meat one from was don't name the animal.
But he would name the animal. And he said what it did, when they ate it. They would remember the name of the animal and they felt gratitude to the animal. Like they felt a gratitude that the animal sacrificed its life for for their life. What steps can we take to be human again? Hmm, well, this is why I'm teaching the book. Just be patient. Yeah, he's going to explain it all. How can we revive an Omaha oriented towards our creative purpose? I mean, I think we have to revive ourselves. First of all,
We should be more concerned concerned about reviving ourselves and Allah will revive the OMA. When we revive ourselves.
We focus too much on these big grand schemes that we need, we need the problem is the individual and we're all going to die. We're only here short period. And the same problems are gonna be here. I mean, human beings have been doing the same stuff for millennia. I mean, it bleeds must be bored.
No, because we're just so predictable.
I mean, that's how AI works right? On the predictability of human beings.
So, what's unpredictable is Salah.
That's what's amazing. And that's why it's so powerful is because, you know, people shouldn't be surprised when people bring money that they found on the street now they're like heroes, that should be a normal human being. When somebody finds something, and they turned it in, I mean, I was in Medina once and I was because I lived in Medina and I was dealing with the mortality and we used to walk every day from the hedonic orbia When Medina was all dirt roads. And I'll never forget I said to this Sudanese man Milk Honey, beautiful Sudanese brother. I said to him, that's really, I can't believe that the government doesn't pave the roads here. He says stuff hold off. Don't say that. We
don't want them paved. This is the the earth that the Prophet walked on. He said, It's musk. We don't want them pave now. They're paid and I regret Yeah, he was right.
But I found this big wad of money, just lying there, like all these 500 riyals, and another man saw it at same time I saw it and I picked it up and he liked it as mine. I said, How much is there is that he didn't know. I said I took it to the police station.
But it was very interesting to find a big wad of money in Medina, you know, who would have thought
more often has found a big. He told me he found a bag of gold coins in when he was in Mecca. And he just stayed there with the coin and the man came back. And when he saw it, he said those are my gold coins is I've been waiting for you. He said he took it and he went into such a shocker. And
laughed. He rarely laughed. He laughed when he told me that he made such that
he thought that was very funny. Maliki's Don't make such as it's a shocker. But he just thought it was funny for gold. You know, like for him? It wasn't a big deal.
Can you comment on say Nick leave lol tosses categorization of human as not an animal. Yeah. So say Naki who is I consider him a great teacher and sage and beautiful and the most beautiful human beings I've ever met. So he he he believes that the classification of genus and species with the human because this is a logical classification. So in logic you have what are the called the Five practicals a little farther Hamsa. So you have like, gins you have no more. You have fossil, you have
hustler. And then you have Arab so yet, out of Hausa Haas and Arada arm, or HERSA and Herat. So the the Genesis the genus, the note is called species, the fossil is the difference. And then you have the property. And you have the
the accident. So so just to give you an example, if we if we say like a triangle, a triangle, the the genus would be
what's the genus
of a triangle?
It's a polygon. Right? Yeah, so the genus is polygon. So you know, has angles, multiple angles, and then the, what makes it different from other polygons?
three sides. So that's the Fussell. That's the difference. So the species is called triangle. So the genus is polygon, the difference is three angles. And then a property would be that the angles will always in Euclidean geometry, they'll always equal 180 degrees. That's not essential to it. In other words, doesn't define it, but it's a specific property. And then you have the accident. It could be a isosceles triangle scaling triangle, right triangle, different types of triangles, it could be a big triangle, red triangle, blue triangle, those are just accident. So like color, the skin colors and accidents not a property because people black people can turn white and white people in turn
black is accident, it's not a property and that's why it's the least important thing in
you know, the accidents are the least important things in these in these five things that that define you have you have a comprehension and extension. So those those are what
So the thing extends to are those five things. The comprehension goes under the macula to the categories. So so
he's he sees the human being as sui generis. It doesn't have a genus.
That's his opinion. And it's an understandable opinion. But traditionally, the Muslims did accept that definition that came out of logic one, not the rational animal, we definitely have animosity. I mean, we share physiology with animals. We have to sleep, we defecate or urinate, we, we procreate, we do all these things that animals do. But because we are a different creation, the Munchak now has an AHA
we do things like for instance, we Allah made us wear clothes, and the only other animals like that, um, you have some newts that don't have any fur or thing but generally most animals have feathers or fur those that's their clothes, they're not naked.
The pig is the closest you know, I mean that's what Churchill said like dogs look up to us cat cats look down on us but pigs look at us like equals
the pig is very similar to human being in physiology that's why we can use so many things from a pig porcine products in medicine are very common.
Like they use Pig valves and things like that. Yeah. So so. So the pig also has like a skin right? So what does it do it it rolls in mud to cover itself. It's a that's why they call it Cocina in Spanish, you know, cook chinos. They're dirty things pigs. But Allah has given us His ornamented us with clothes is he to honor us. So we're, we're Bashara, which means we have Bashara. Like, we have skin, we don't have feathers or fur, but he gave us clothes, to ornament us to adorn us, right? And then, and then he we eat cooked food generally. So we cook our food. So we do things that animals don't do, right? Animals, like they go down to the trough. He's given us the ability to eat in a
dignified way, then we ornament our food, we do all these things to, to remove that animosity from us. Right. And that's why they're very important. So this idea of the modern ideas, we're just animals, you know. So the Gnostic ideas, you know, this, the human beings, this rarefied thing, but they're, it's, we're, we're, we're between the two, we're this creation between animals and between angels, we can go down to the animal level, or we can go up to the angel level. So in that way, he's right, you know that we are not animals per se, like, we're not, we're something else. But we do we do share with the animals that and that's why to say that we're animals is not correct. And I would
agree with him on that. I mean, I heard once I was, like I said this before, but in a moment of weakness is into KPFA. And there was this guy on the on the radio who said,
he said, You know what the problem is, humans just haven't come to terms with the fact we're just a bunch of animals.
And I was thinking, I just want to say that guy really, like as you're driving down in your BMW on a cell phone talking to a radio station that's like miles away from you, like the donkeys are doing that, right now, you know, newts are doing that, you know, pigs are sitting around discussing metaphysical problems. You know, I mean, it's, it's just not right to say that human beings aren't, but that's what they want to do. They want to reduce us to our animosity, and then humiliate us with it. Because when people behave like animals, they humiliate themselves you see on Black Friday, when they all burst into these places, and they go mad. They're like, They that you can say they're like
animals, it's not fair to animals. Like it really isn't fair to animals because Allah says, We're us, fellas, F 18. When we go there, we're the lowest of the low. Allah says in Hong Kong, and then home Ubuntu, that's called harvested rock. It's like to make a correction. You know, I mean, a lot doesn't make mistakes, but it's a rhetorical device in the Quran. So it's no, they're even more straight. Why? Because animals don't behave like that. Animals don't like a human will go out and kill a bunch of animals for sport, just to kill them. hunt them put trophies on their walls and a lion if you watch like these documentaries, where they show the lion and all the zebras, they're all
eating lunch. You know, they're just like in the Africa. They're just eating lunch.
I was in West Africa. We were driving and we saw all these wild animals. I can't remember what they were. You saw these wild animals. And I was with one of the Americans who said he said
Well this is just like the nature channel. I said the nature sounds like this you know? This is real Yeah, but but anyway so so he you know
that when the lion comes they'll start running but right when he gets one they go back to eating
because I Zach's lunch today you know it's over you know you can go back and do what they're doing but humans know and that's why the Arab he said our that both needs to be the be the hour or so water instead of a kid to go to the Bedouin he's walking in the desert. He said I heard the howl of a wolf and I found comfort in the hull of the wolf. But then I hear the human voice and I nearly flew out of my skin.
Because the thing about a wolf you know, the nature of a wolf
he's not going to surprise you. The Wolf's not going to behave like you know, a cat or it's going to be behave like a wolf. You know what you're dealing with, but humans, it could be a demon, it could be an angel. You just don't know. And very often it is a demon.
one what, what okay. Yeah,
So I just wanted to ask about the relationship between the caste system so you have the Brahmin the warrior
should yeah, Kisha Tria should join the facia. And how does that relate to the cosmology of the human being? Because you mentioned Well, yeah, you mentioned that there were four elements that make up the individual so you have the tuba Hara, but the but then on a on sociologically on a sociological level, you have the four within the caste system Sure. Well, I think I mean, the caste system institutionalize this is what what is natural phenomena. Every culture has Brahman people every culture has by Isha every culture has the Cush, the every culture has the Shudra I mean, it's just like our untouchables, our homeless people,
and their untouchables who's gonna go down there, very few people actually go down there, and, and spend time with them and talk to them. And, you know, when you see them, they're dirty, they're filthy, you don't really want to touch them. So they're in that way, they're like untouchables. And then you have the, you know, the people that do the, you know, garbage. I mean, traditional garbage men were different from now garbage men are they genuinely are sanitation engineers. I mean, these guys have good jobs, they just, they don't even touch the garbage, they just have these machines come out and turn it over. So it's different, that'll probably all be aI anyways. But but but in any
case, and then you have the Vaishya, or like the commercial class, the farmers to be able to do all that. And then you have the military, you have police and you have mill, and then you have the Brahmin, the intellectuals, the politicians, the the doctors, the the, you know, the educated people, the scholars, that's all so. So, those are just natural phenomena, they just institutionalized it, I mean, the mortality is did the same thing the mortality has have have almost identical to the Hindu caste system, very similar. And it was done by one of their leaders. I mean, he actually said, Your tribes are going to do this, you're trying to do this, you're trying to do
that. So he just gave them all tasks. So they have the, what they call the out of and they're the warrior class there, that would be the Cristea. And then they have the Zumaia, which are the Brahmin class, and then they have the zanaga, which are like the Vaishya. And then they have the soul mod, which are like the more you know, kind of a mumble within class. Yeah, it's very strange. and amazing.
So I was really interested in the idea of how we name things and we make them from particulars to universals. But I was also curious how when we make universal center particularly or like like, for example, what you mentioned naming animals and the effect it has and how the Prophet Allah Salam he would name named everything named everything. So I was wondering about the implication of like, of that, well, I think one the prophesy ism had very few things.
So So naming something is honoring it, because things that you have that you possess, they have a reality and, and to treat them well is a kind of edit, like to put things in their proper place. Not to you. I mean, there's a story of reefer Yeah, I mean, I don't have problem believing it, but he was talking about how everything is sentient, even even Gemma that have a type of
sentience and I just wrote an article two days ago about how they
They now they've recorded the sound of, of, of plants when they're cut. So they actually make a kind of screaming sound when they're cut. And I was once clipping a there's true straw, I was once clipping a tree. And I was I was wondering in my head
if the tree was feeling this and right when I had that thought I literally clipped my finger the tip of my finger and and it bled, and trees bleed, you know, so things are sentient. And Dr. Cleary said that one of the things that he would do with children he said children love to tear up flowers. So when he with kids and they would tear up flowers, he would cry.
Just say why are you doing that? It's like it's it's a beautiful thing.
Children like to do that root flowers apart.
They flashlight, yeah, interesting. So, this this our plant expert
is a good thing to be an expert in plants. One of the one of the things about you know everything has a
that one of the cashflow Junaid was that he heard all the plants tell their medicinal properties like a spoke to him.
because I think a lot of where people got that ancient knowledge was from
listening and trees speak you know, trees are very
Yeah. The Peanuts.
so. So. Yeah, sentience is. It's very nice. Anyway, he said that, you know, he was having this debate, and then he dropped the glass on the thing and he heard a like, ouch, from the glass was like a cush.
For him. That was with him. I'm revising his book beforehand, and what uh, yeah.
I think it's important that I read and wonder
that have dinner. Yeah, that's Yeah.
Go ahead. It's pretty loud in here.
So do you think there's any connection between the four elements and the four temperaments? Yeah, there is. I mean, even in the tradition there is so the temperaments which are the Bellamy and stuff are always how do we and Moe which phlegmatic choleric, melancholic, and sanguine? So sanguine is hot and wet. choleric is hot and dry, melancholic is cold and dry, and phlegmatic is cold and wet. So
the foods that you eat based on your temperament will, like people that are are phlegmatic, it's better for them to eat. Things that are more hot and dry, like coffee is good for them. Dates are good for them, things like that people that are hot and dry. If they eat too much of the hot and dry it, it'll excite that. So I mean those and then they have degrees. So this is all in the old books of the but I mean, I actually think that there's a lot of validity to the four element theory. It's not as popular anymore, but there are still people that that adhere to it and do believe that and there's an interesting new translation of avocent as book the first volume of the unknown, which was
done by three researchers at
two of them are at George Washington University, the medical school, they're there, they're MDs, I think, and one of them is at the National Institute of Health. And they make an argument that that actually, that they are it's a very accurate description. And so they have a whole new interpretation of it based on modern science, which is very interesting. So, but it's also it's, it's a lot of our tradition is
its tragedy, but you know, it's, these are sciences that came out of experience and testing and things like that. So, so how Nicola met him to go shadow and Ilahi Lanta stock rover to where they were actually in that in Santa Lucia hoarser Illa Lena and what I'm really sorry how to what to also but happy what will also be subpar.
