File Size: 27.19MB
Shaykh Hasan Ali divulges details on the Names of Allah beginning with the foremost name, the most widely used name, the first name to be used in the Noble Qur’an – ALLAH.
The Prophet ﷺ first asked of the Muslim Ummah to spread the Name of Allah by saying – Laa Ilaaha Illallaah and the Shahadah in which the last two phrases of the Shahadah end with Allah.
There are many different ways in which Allah has described Himself in the Noble Qur’an. He wants us to praise Him as He is worthy of praise. Allah gives out the greatest things to us.
We are also made to understand that two things are absolutely essential and at the core of trying to strengthen our belief – belief in Allah SWT and belief in the Last Day. No aqeedah is complete of a Mu’min without believing in Allah and applying that steadfast belief in one’s daily lives.
Imam Al Qurtubi goes on to share in the book being used by Shaykh Hasan Ali that the ultimate waswasa or deviation of Shaytan is to make us question the existence of Allah SWT. Shaytan makes us ponder – if nothing was present before Allah, then who created Allah? These sort of questions causes us to go astray and deviate from the path of Islam. It should be sufficient for us to believe that Allah was always in existence and we being a Mu’min should firmly believe so to avoid spoiling our aqeedah.
Some of the aspects of Allah that we should refrain from pondering upon are as follows:
- How Allah looks like. This is something that we will never know unless we are blessed on the Day of Judgement or if we are among the dwellers of Jannah.
- Limiting Allah to a specific dimension – if someone does so, he has indeed committed Kufr. For example, if we think that Allah sits on a throne, then we have limited Allah to specific dimensions which is impossible.
- Assuming Allah to be the light itself – Allah is the Provider of Light of the Heavens and the Earth and so it is wrong to say that Allah is the Light Himself.
We can stay away from these deviations by following what the Noble Prophet ﷺ ordained us to do which is to think about the Attributes of Allah and the creations of Allah rather than thinking of Allah Himself as this is something which is not comprehensible from our intellect. If we continue to do so, then it will eventually make us go into a tangent of waswasa and an ultimate on at that by Shaytan.
Allah is Infinite and He does not have a past, present or future. Rather, it is He who has created all of these time frames.
Okay, we see let
me know salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad
wa ala alihi wa sahbihi
So all right.
The second session then to the asthma law Hill has now the Beautiful Names of Allah subhanaw taala, where Allah has told us he has ordered us
to take his name and to call him through his beautiful names, only let him smell has nothing Obi
Wan Kenobi, rahula. He
says, this, this name particularly Allah is very specific with it being the greatest of all the names because it has been the first of the names. Second thing, nothing he says that it is the first of the names that Allah has used. It is also the one that is the most widely used, it will it is also the one that has
endless meaning to it because of Allah.
Allah using this name as a as a basis for all the different Seyfarth or the qualities that he has in the other names. Allah has also used this within the sources of the Quran and the Sunnah. And we also find in the previous scriptures that this name, similarly, not maybe exactly Allah, but very similar sort of words being used in the scriptures beforehand. And many of the things that we do we start with tomorrow, can we start to try and get Allah's blessing through this name by saying Bismillah, and so on. And this is something which is the first thing I'm called to be says. One of the first things that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he started with, was to spread the name of
Allah, which is inside our Shahada.
And we c'est la, la ONU Sasha de la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. If you look at the two phrases of the Shahada, both of them end with the name of Allah, eyeshadow Lai la luz named Mohammed Rasulullah. And you have both of the even the van or in certain Shahada, you have got both that you got the name of Allah. And it's the first thing which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam called to by saying, in a famous Hadith a Muslim, move to an aquatera nas Hata poo, like the law that I have been ordered to fight people or to, to try and you know, to be in a state where I'm going to struggle with people until they start to manifest to proclaim to c'est la ilaha illa Allah and then
in a separate Hadith
in this hadith is a hadith Ramadan Muslim nessa as well, for su La la la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La Jenna, whosoever will die and they will, they will know, they will know and they will have the belief of law, the law, then they will enter, they enter the garden. So, you have, as I said in the previous session, that if Allah His name is taken the word Allah not any other name but Allah Allah La Takuma Sato hasta la you call out the Allah, Allah Hadith
that the last hour will not come.
Last I will not come until no one on the entire Earth is saying Allah, Allah, no one on the entire Earth saying Allah Allah. Now there are many things that are in the Holy Quran.
When Allah has described himself, he has used his name of Allah to talk about many different qualities and the things that he has done.
And some of those things.
Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah
he says in Surah,
30 surah number 54. Allahu Allah, Allah.
Allah is the one that has created you
weakness. Now there's a way of, there's a waste of 100 lies in all these syphax that we're going to cover, even with a last name, there's a way of a believer always reflecting the self with Allah subhanaw taala. So when Allah said, Allahu la de holla comiendo, amin darf. There's two different ways of reciting this, this verse, Allah is the one who has created you from weakness. So medalla mean by the KU mean by the dolphin.
After your weakness, he has created us strength. Now what does that mean? That means that you
have got no strength at all.
And the way to reflect oneself with Allah is that our law, you have no weakness at all. And I am the one of weakness. Su medalla member, the governing board, former shaybah and after the strength that he gives us, he then turns it into weakness, and he turns it into old age.
Now, how do we reflect here? we reflect with this that Allah Allah has described what he does with us. But we're supposed to think in a way we sort of think about ourselves, but we're supposed to think about a line return, that Allah you have never had any weakness. No, do you have any weakness right now? No, will you ever have any weakness ever, ever? Which is ahead of us in time. Allah does not have any of that. When we read in the in the Quran, you say sort of out there for example, Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen with praise a lot who say that All praise belongs to Allah. What does that mean? That means that Allah is the machmood He is the one that is praised, one of his names is
Hamid. So he is the one who is praised, and I am the creation and I need to praise and when I praise Him, and He is praised, Allah then appreciates what I do. That is why in in Surah Tauba, Allah has used one of the qualities of the believers he likes his hammy, dude, is he said,
Allah we do. Al hamdu Asana. So if you look in there, in Surah, to Toba,
Allah said Hamidullah, those who praise Allah. So he wants us to be the ones to praise, but he is the Hamid. So there's a reflection going on. He's the praised, I'm the appraiser, which makes me automatically the weak one.
And he makes him the strong one. When Allah has said, Rob, Rob, he is again, the one who is in charge, the one who provides the one who has the strength, he is the one who's in charge in terms of provider, and I'm the weak one, I am the one in need. So therefore, I look forward to being provided and I have always been provided, I am being provided, and I will always be provided. And this is the one this is one way of strengthening one's faith with Allah. That all provision is all from Allah. Everything that I've got, and that's how you
are Rahman Rahim. When we when we come across the names are Rahman Rahim, Allah is the one who has the mercy. And I'm the one who is the recipient of mercy and mercy whom I'm the one who's receiving the message, Elijah Rahim with one who's given mercy. So therefore, Allah is the one who has faith in me and I'm the one who's been favored. So I am again, one who is humble in front of his existence, because Allah is the one that is always giving out great things towards myself. And it's all about me, it's all about you. This is how we strengthen our faith. One thing is, Allah has said in the Holy Quran whenever he is, he has told us about faith. He has said he said, Man, can I you
know, be laggy while yummy after this is sort of the Baccarat you'll find in several places around you will also find in a hadith as well. Two things are at the core of trying to strengthen our beliefs. two things. One is Eman biller and the other one is Eman. William, one is believe in Allah. And the other one is believe in the last day. See, most of us we know Allah
just as a just as a god, one who's worthy of worship. That's it. And and he's there, he's in existence. And we here just to serve that most of us just think of him as that. But there are so many different
ways of thinking about Allah. And this is one of the reasons why we're doing the, the asthma as well. So when we get to Malik, and sort of heart to heart,
Allah is the one who says, On the Day of Recompense, I am the complete owner. Why did Allah say that? Because in this world, Allah has given mulk his dominion, he's given part of it to different certain different creation. So, when you own a house, you are the Malik or you are the owner of that house, when you own some money, you are the Malik until you die. And then that money asset, whatever you own goes to somebody else, and they become the Malik they become the owner. So Allah has in this world allowed others to be known, even for a moment even though Allah still owns all of it, he still is still given us the
the right to say that I own this, you don't have to say that, you know, you know my house, I own my house. And I own it as well. You don't have to say that is what he's given us the right to say that, you know, you own the money that are the assets or whatever you got is your possession. However, on the day of judgment, Allah has Allah has given no one the right no one the right to say they own anything. So if somebody comes into their judgment, you don't even own your body.
This is the way to think when we say Manichaean media, we don't even own our bodies on the Day of Judgment. Because you know, frannie says,
well, McCune testa, Tirana, Chardonnay, kousaka masakan the ones is one's eyes, one's mouth, when they will testify against oneself. And the person will curse their own mouth that will cluster on his little cluster on skin juluca cluster skin
and then their skins and then the skins the mouth, the ears or eyes will say to them that don't us think that you were able to cover and to hind any of these from Allah subhanaw taala because he has complete control on that day, even our bodies we don't have complete control of how we are going to move you don't have control of it. Where what what where you go on the Day of Judgment, you have no control of it. You can't plan on the day of judgment that I'm going to try and run and get to near Alizarin and try and get under there. You've got no control whatsoever. It's Allah. Allah says Lima honeymoon Coolio in Surah mcminn, who owns the entire Dominion today, there's a difference in the
reason why I lost us that there because in the world, moon, or dominion, or ownership has been given or was given to certain individuals to own certain things. But on that day, no one at all would have anything in fact, Rasulullah sallallahu, Santa Monica said, Not even your own ammo can save on the day.
Not even your own actions can save you Illa Rama Daniella, who we refer to men who have the only way is that Allah azza wa jal, he has his mercy and is bound to on that day and he encompasses someone with his mercy and bounty. That will be the case that that is the only way you will be able to save yourself on the Day of Judgment.
when we say now good allies, the
allies, the one that is being worshiped, I'm the one who's worshiping Allah is the one who's being served and the servant and the one who's serving automatically makes a person humble, and it makes a person
you know, someone who is a sub subordinate or someone who is submissive or in submission to Allah azza wa jal seems a lot of the one thing that is important is see, you know, a key the, what we're covering here is our beliefs is arcada. It's very easy for us right now to cover aspects of Allah azza wa jal in a lesson or in a in a gathering like this, and we just talk about Allah's qualities. And it's so nice to just hear that you know, okay, Allah is so great and so on. We know the most difficult part of Aikido is to try and move the beliefs of Allah into one's life
into one's life. So for example, for me, when I've gone home, to carry all these beliefs with me, that ally is the one who's in charge alive providing me allies have mercy on me alive, the owner and complete owner allies, the one that I'm serving, and he's the one that has been served at all times. I am supposed to be humble in front of Allah all times, to carry that forward in our daily lives after this lesson, after
This session. This is this is the the biggest challenge of al Qaeda, because most people will carry some of it, and they'll fail to carry over and then some people will come to a certain position where they will carry none of it at all. You know, when people sin, when people sin, the belief of Allah at that moment is very weak. It's very weak. It's only perhaps just a name. And that's why one of the verses quoted in the Quran is
one day when the idol worshippers they made the idols they had, they had given them names, and Allah azza wa jal in three different places had in here, a smile on some mighty Mohan Kumar and Allah who be having some fun. They are only butt names, they only butt names that you have given to these statues and stones. They don't have. They don't have at all, any authority, any authority whatsoever to be called God. Nothing, no book revealed nothing from Allah. Allah has not revealed anything.
So what does that mean? That means that they gave these names, and that's all they were his only names. And the same if somebody treats Allah azza wa jal the same way. That is just a name. And it just means that Okay, fine, you know, whatever will happen, fine. I don't need to worry about too much. This is where we this is where a man is weak. See, some people if you tell them, if you were to tell them that I will. In I will be a person who will take matters with you until the day of judgment.
Imagine you say you were to say to someone that on the Day of Judgment, will will sort it out. There's two different ways of looking at this. If a person has a true fear of Allah, then they'll say No way. I'm not going to leave this until the day of judgment. I'm going to say no to that right now. I want to sort out with you right now. But if a person doesn't have the fear of Allah, he'll get happy. He'll be happy. Like, okay, fine. You're not going to show that with me here. I'll get away with it here. I don't know his camera is really far. Cameras really far don't have to worry about that. That's one of the things that Allah said in the into the marriage. He said in a home era
who buy either one urahara. When when Eman is weak, then the person sees the day of judgment as a far reality, as a far reality. And Allah says, I see to something really close. It's a close reality that will that will come about. So when a man is weak, then sinning becomes easy, because the concept of a law related to the threats that He has given about the Day of Judgment become very weak. They become very weak. So and one of the eyes that is a Vietnam call anthem, Asana, Allah Yama do that this is because they said that the fire will not burn us except for a few days. This is one of the reasons that people do do the Crafty Things that they do because they don't believe that
punishment is going to be there for them for a very long time.
He can assign Allah is Mustang, Allah is the one that we seek help from. I'm always seeking help, I need to humble myself not Lalo how many things are last just since the sort of idea. You think what its provision. I'm getting provision from Allah. I'm getting mercy from Allah. Allah has given me the right to say that I'm an own and he is going to be the total on the Day of Judgment. Allah is is the one I need to serve and he's the one who has asked me to serve Him and He is the one that I will give. I will seek seek help from and then he Dena allies the howdy He guides and I'm the MADI, I'm the one who is guided. Therefore, it again, I'm always seeking guidance from Allah. I'm always

The moody or the or the Hardy, you are the one who can guide someone and you're the one who can lead someone astray. And I don't want to become one who's who's being led astray. So with with this
Eman kotomi says,
in a hadith of Bokhari and it's been generated and others that kind of La wa shaimaa
Allah was there and there was nothing at all that was there create in terms of creation, nothing at all, nothing at all, allows them in his existence in his pure existence, and nothing was there. Now, just to quickly go over this and explain this because the ultimate was fossa that, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that shaytan will give to people is,
if this is how the law This is the creation of Allah tamanho Allah, Allah, so who created Allah is the ultimate was was or no deviation of shaytan will try trying to lead people astray is to actually start to get you to think of Allah, to the extent that you start thinking about Allah Who created you. So there's certain things that we don't think about Allah, certain things. Number one is, now we have to, we have to remain within a
Because if you go too much into thought about Allah, you may spoil your aqidah you may spoil your beliefs about Allah. So one of the things is that we don't know how Allah azza wa jal looks,
and we will never find out how Allah azza wa jal looks, until we get on to the Day of Judgment. If Allah blesses someone with seeing him on the Day of Judgment, they will see him If not, when we get to Jannah, everyone will see him in Jannah. So when in when you've got to one of the extremes is to try and imagine Allah azza wa jal in some form, Allah has no form, whatsoever that we can put him into. So there is no concept of, you know, a lot of Muslims actually don't know this, that this this is actually this is actually completely forbidden to do but they, they kind of hear the out of the here Allah czar for his throne. And they imagine that Allah sits on the throne. Now the villa is
absolutely forbidden. To do this. Allah has said he has out of which in our world means that it is, it is a throne. Now in our world, we know how a throne looks like
it will have, you know, you probably have a few legs and a lot of place to sit and you can sort of rest your arms on to the sides and so on. And a king normally sits on a throne. But what Allah meant by his throne, we don't exactly know even if you say that there is something similar to the to the throne that we have on this earth. If you imagine if a Muslim imagines a lot to sit on the throne, that will be Kufa, that will be disbelief, because what you've done is you've limited Allah within dimension, you've lived into that law within dimensions. So if I, for example, I'm sitting here right on this chair, so, my body is limited, my thighs are within this, the edge of this side of the
of the chair and my other side on the left side is limited here to this side of the chair, my back is now sitting comfortably within this was shape that has been you know made into the chair so that I can lean against it. And my whole body is with on or within the limited space of this chair.
If one imagines Allah subhanaw taala in any way on the earth,
it will be careful because
Allah has got no
space that limited,
there is no space with a space dimension is his creation.
dimension is his creation. Right now I am sitting on this chair, this is in front of me.
This is to my right, to my left, above me, beneath me. And behind me These are dimensions that exist. Allah has no such thing. Because all these diamonds that are pointed to all these dimensions are pointed to these dimensions are the part of the creation of God. They are his creation.
If a person limits Allah to anything first and limits Allah to anything,
it will be. Another extreme is to another set of a hadith that we'll talk about. Talk about Allah azza wa jal him descending.
And Allah like for example, in the last third part of the night, a lot comes to the first guy and he says, Who is there to ask me for forgiveness, I will forgive him who is there to ask me something, I will give it to him and so on. Now, if one imagines that our lives are just moves, he moves
and he is sometimes here and some are not here, but he's over there again that is not right.
What those ahaadeeth mean is that Allah Mercy is close. Allah's mercy is close to the to the human beings at that time, Allah has readiness to accept his son sevens. Toba or repentance is closed at that time, not the fact that Allah actually moves in time and space, that is that is not that is not something which allows origin has done because time and space are part of his creation.
Another extreme issue, imagine Allah azza wa jal because Allah has said Allah husana the will of
Allah is the light of if you literally read you realize the light of the heavens and the earth.
But if you look in the Tafseer This is an eye in sort of to note and certified Sudoku, Allah no to some article, if you actually look into to see is Allahumma will some article Abuja means Muna will which means what, which means that Allah is the giver of light, the provider of light in the heavens and the earth is the provider of light in the heavens in the earth. Which means that it is wrong of people to just imagine Allah as as a light.
It's wrong to imagine that he you know, he's a light or his, his his there in front of me. Look, I know, what we do is we just know his existence. We know Allah's existence. And we know see, one of the things that you can do is
Allah azza wa jal has said,
in the who be cliche in Allah,
Allah knows everything. So therefore he knows my place. Allah, Sameer he, he is everything. So he is me, as I'm saying something to him. Allah is Allah is one who sees everything, sees everything. So therefore where I am, he sees me exactly where I know what I'm doing, what I'm intending what I'm saying what I'm thinking, Allah knows that. And that's how we think of Allah that He is there is existence is there, we do not say, and we do not say that he is under the debate between the between the certain people have certain different sects of aqidah. And I know some people accused that there's accusations going on on both sides.
One party says that he because Allah has said he is used estaba Allah laughs and so on. So he's above,
or estaba has used the word stellar. stellar means that he has ascended. That's what they they allude this meaning to be that he is ascended. So he's ascended to the sky ascended to the to the earth. So they take a kind of a literal meaning of this. But again, it is wrong to say that a lot is it is wrong to say a lie is above there and not here. That is one extreme. That is one extreme. Because what you're doing again, is you're limiting a lot what
you will live into a lot one
dimension is wrong to say that.
Now that's one party. The other party says that our lies everywhere
lies everywhere, mineralized in every single space everywhere would mean what lies in every single possible space. That is also incorrect.
That is also incorrect. Because if you say that lies everywhere, what have you done?
You have put on layaway.
creation, we are saying within his his own his own creation of dimension you've put him inside that you you're saying that he is in his creation. So and we we can't we have got nothing in the actual Quran or the Sunnah to either go of this first party that says he's just above all the other one that says is everywhere. And the first party have cited certain things of Estella and said he's he's transcended, who is ascended and so on, above.
Imam Malik Rahim Allah he has said so much who
is still out what did Allah actually mean by when he said the word he used the word estaba from self, we this is this is something which has which we have no knowledge of cave here to Malou we know on this earth if you say somebody has ascended, somebody descended, we know the meanings of these things, but with regards to Allah we don't know. And he has said, the best thing is not to question
and even if you if you question, he is called a Buddha, he is called an innovation.
So, Allahu Allah, he said, this is innovation which means what some of these things that Allah has used for himself, we'll leave it to him. That's the best way to to live it. Now if somebody says to you, well, what do you believe in Allah always a good thing his thing is Allah, I believe is in existence. And I don't mean by that.
I believe in his existence and I'm a movement and this this phrase of an ally inshallah, in another part will cover the hadith of these. It was only used a couple of times by Rasulullah sallallahu. To verify the amount of a young girl
is only used a couple of times to verify the amount of a young girl when his hobby came in, he said, Mr. Bhalla, I have to I have to release a slave that is a believing slave. So can you tell me if this girl is a believing slave? And to that,
to that individual Rasul Allah has asked in a law. Now there's there's about three or four different narrations regarding this. One of them suggests
one of them suggests that she couldn't speak.
So Rasulullah, Salah has had to question her in a different way, different to what he done in many different Hadith. How did you verify the Eman in many different Hadith? He said, at the shadow Allah, Allah, Allah? He said, Do you actually witness that there is no no there is no one where the worship of Allah or he would say, you know, I took me to believe, do you believe in Allah and so on. But in on this occasion, he decided to say I know love whatever the reason is, it does not give reason to anyone to use this one method which is only used once or a couple of times in Asana over the many different methods that Rasulullah saw allows us to verify one's email
so an alarm should not be a question that we use you know, Tony ways I like if you get that answer wrong, then you're going to be a copy. That's not the way to actually go about to try and know if you say this answer you might be a copy of his answer. You might be a cat. That's not the way to go about it. What is important is Do you believe in Allah? If you want to find out mean, do you believe in Allah? Yes, I do believe in Allah. You don't need to go into, you know the details of if I just believe in his existence, that's fine. Coming back to this thing about
Allah azza wa jal, it is wrong to believe that he's everywhere. He's wrong to believe that he's in a particular place. Why? Because you don't know. I don't know. You don't know from something that is absolutely clear in the Quran and the Sunnah, the best thing we can say is that Allah has made one thing clear, instead of Quran Sunnah, which is his existence, we believe in his existence, we believe that he is there. And we don't need to go into details of exactly where now if, through our law scholars who go into those debates let the scholars go into the debates where it's not something which the common people need to go into as a debate. The other thing I was going to cover is from
this hadith of Bokhari
in 3191, Bahati, there's that Hadith about
it says kind of law will actually allow us then there's nothing else at all that was really now if a person starts to think, okay, I'm thinking about a law and I'm thinking, one of the things that as soon as a law has been said, he said Takeru Fie, hello Killa wallet, filler. He said, think, ponder. And continue to think about what about the creation of God?
And he also told us, Allah, Allah has told us, don't think and ponder about Allah. Don't think and ponder about Allah. There's one thing wrong to do. If one thinks about the extent of Allah see part of his attributes, or if I want things about how merciful Allah is, how much it will say Francis sensing Subhan Allah, Allah gave mercy to that bird to feed its young Subhan Allah, Allah gave mercy to the mother to fear Swan Allah Allah gave message this message
And is cured them, Swan Allah Allah has given mercy to you know this person and is first forgiven that other person, this is fine. So you thinking about the creation of God where Allah as Mercy is there in the creation of God, you think of Allah, Allah, Allah, the aim of how Allah has given this person knowledge and that person knowledge and so on, this is fine. But if you actually think about Allah Himself, okay, I'm not thinking about Allah, how wonderful you are without thinking of the creation, you start thinking about Allah, this is something that this is a dude is no goes on, because you will eventually end up starting to have doubts about a lot because the ultimate was also
that the shaytan will put inside is this is the creation of God. So where is Allah? Now? This is a question of God. So who created God who created online?
Now, we don't go towards that. But it's a question that might occur and especially, you know, as living in this day and age,
and, you know, youngsters who go to school, they always are bombarded with these questions. So who created God? Especially with the atheist, though the last question, Who created God? So was God, you know, what was there before God?
Now, if you, you know, we, as human beings, you used to always have thinking of things in the time and dimension. We were bound with that. We've never been out of that. Never. So for example, if I asked you who was there before us, our my mum and dad were there. For me, well, who was a bit before then Molly was my grandparents, who was there before that was my great grandparents. And then you can go with a triolo to Adam Allison.
Okay, you can go back without them up to admin. So if I say this must be who came first, you say, Well, you know, Uncle over there came first, or the Catholic come first, and he opened the masjid. And then he came in and sounds okay. And so, but then if you say, well, who was before the caretakers, all the mustard was empty.
Now, normally, in this world, there's always the thing of something possibly didn't exist, or wasn't there, before something actually came into existence? with Allah azzawajal this thing does not work.
This thing does not work. Because something to have a beginning, to have a beginning to create the beginning. That is, allows power.
Because he's budhia. But they are means that he creates something without having any prior existence. Any molecules, anything whatsoever before that, Allah azza wa jal created a formula to bring something to an end. This is also his doing, he can bring something to an end. But to apply these rules, these laws to the Creator Himself is wrong.
And people people then might get still stay confused. They think, well, what? How can Allah just be there? How can this be there?
How can he have just come into because you're so used to this rule of UCM you see a wooden table. So you think of a carpenter
there must have been a carpenter to create the wooden table you're so used to thinking of, you know, this is steel here that I've got there must have been a blacksmith that has that has shaped the steel into this place. We're so used to everything in his entire world. Allah has put it into the the physics of this world is or the norm of this world is that you will find one thing that has been the source of another thing that is in this world, but with as Allah azza wa jal, it doesn't work with him. That question has worked with him.
And he's given us a couple of things. He's given us a couple of things to think about.
Which is what which is up to you the human yourself. Last in the Holy Quran, this is my creation. Allah subhanaw taala This is what I've created and alas told is now go and explore my creation. So he's told us a lot of things Okay, he's told us he says sanitary him is a natural fit Wolfie emphysema. Hector You're
so beautiful. I have a last verse, or towards the end of suta hammy message
was enhancer is Allah said I will show them my signs in the horizons and I will show them within the human beings themselves. The two things he said in the horizons and the human beings themselves I will show my signs.
And what does that mean?
Have humans explode?
The whole of the universe Yes or no?
Yes or no?
Have they now completed the extra exploration of the whole of the universe? Yes or no? No? How much percent would you say that they have explored of Allah's universe of the cosmos of the galaxies of the Milky Way's of the, you know, stars? That is, how many percent? Would you say that humans? Huh? Less than 5%? Thank you, even then it makes even then even claim less than 5%? Because we don't know what's beyond that the galaxies we know today is even then it would be a far claim to make that. And how much have we discovered of the human being when you look inside the human being? So you're looking right at the depth of the nerves and the cells and the, you know, parts of the brain? Or the
or the heart? How much have we discovered the human being?
You said 50%? Yeah, I wouldn't even say 50% because before they discovered the DNA,
in the 50s, before they discovered the DNA, doctors thought, and, you know, researchers thought that they had, like you saying, a good 80% a good 5060 70% that discovered the human being? And tell me, you know, there's a doctor who tell me, what has How has the, the discovery of the DNA revolutionized the way we think about the human being?
How has it done that? It's been phenomenal, right? It's absolutely phenomenal. It's like almost discovering, is almost like making us feel, makes us feel that you know, what, we did not even know anything about the human being, I wonder DNA, they discovered that and it came to the gene code and now they've said that they've they've broken and they've come to the end of the gene con zone, it's still just the beginning.
Imagine human beings on this earth have discovered this body be looking at this body for centuries for millennia, to be looking at his body. And in the 50s just just 50 years ago 60 years ago a large says well you think you know, you think you know you're okay he is DNA always been in a human being. So now they you know, think a while you know, they've got millions of genes to work with Now, what happens if I put this gene with that gene was my take away the gene was
just baffled is now opened, open fields for hundreds of new scientists to be born. To just discover the human being now about the cosmos, in a brother said that maybe less than 5% has been discovered.
If less than 5% is true, I would say less than 1%.
We don't even have because humans haven't even landed on Mars yet.
They haven't landed on you know, Venus or Mars or whatever. You know, the closest planets to us. They haven't landed on those. Once they land on those if they ever get there.
There's a lot of discovery to be done. And that's only one star.
One planet. Out of the millions and millions Allah has created who knows what's on the who knows what's on what planet who knows what is beyond these stars that we see every night. Who knows?
A lot of them and they they've just about you know they say they landed on the moon and that was a whole hoax in the 60s whether they did it or not. But they whether they did it after that or not. They The moon is just one just one.
They only know a little about the sun. They only know little about these you know the the Van Allen belt they know a little about you know space and that being okay we've been to space but this is only just outside of this just outside of the Earth is almost like saying it's almost like saying imagine this. Imagine in this hole right now. We've got a small
man you've got a small bacteria inside the carpet under the carpet has millions of bacteria in order right? in a room that will do sudo next time.
Don't worry about Yeah, don't get don't get carried away by now there's lots of bacteria inside the
imagine one of them. A clever little bacteria there in the carpet. Just comes to the surface of the carpet and he sees this entire copy.
He says wow that's the universe. But they say that the universe and is so small that you need you know a good Microsoft to just just just about able to see him but he feels
He's his little mates and as a few bacteria that that they all feel that they now have seen this then added to discover, imagine, imagine they discovered this whole room? What's this room to the whole? dunya?
What's this room to the whole of our planet Earth?
If they feel that they know planet earth and the whole of existence by just knowing this, this hole here?
Are you going to agree with me that they've totally lost it? That will agree with me they totally lost it. Why on earth do they think this is the same way as humans if human seeing that they've discovered the whole of the Universe by having you know, telescopes and the, you know, the
certain strong lenses that they can look through to the new This is nothing at all. And what Allah is doing is a jazz was a jazz era jazz is to make you feel absolutely powerless.
This one called modular modular, when a when a prophet comes with a modular or he comes with a miracle. Why is the miracle column modular? Because when you're in front of the module,
you're absolutely powerless. You've got no explanation, you've got no theory that will help you. You've got no equipment that you can use to try and verify you got nothing. If you look at musasa, when he when he put his his stake onto the ground.
A Swan allows him you know, this is this is modular, because all those other magicians they came, and they put the ropes in their steaks. And it was the people's eyes were mesmerized. And the eyes saw these things moving, wow, these are snakes on wall, I've got a massive circle is that they have a day of celebration, the whole cities here. And we've got massive circle. And the magicians are in the middle for our knees is sitting there on his throne. And he's laughing because these, these, these
sorceress or the these magicians, they have come and they put the sticks and the ropes down and everyone's now seeing snakes. They're seeing snakes and they think things actually move. But the Quran says you Hi yellow la demon Sadie, him and Natasha. It was made to their eyes. There's a power that be which the eyes and the eyes will be wished and their eyes were made to see certain things moving when none of these things were actually snakes and they were not moving the way that they saw them.
Now what's what's what's the magician gonna do? A magician if he came to challenge these are the best magicians these are the ones that they they they used to you know mesmerize people all over Egypt and Egypt at that time was one of the biggest major cities across the whole of Arabia. And Arabia at that time was one of the centers of the world.
So now you can't get better than these. And as they're, they're, they're feeling well, who's who's gonna know what, what's a magician can do? A magician is gonna come he's gonna probably put a biggest stake one of his God, and it's just going to be another snake that's gonna move or it's gonna make a scorpion move was was gonna make they thought okay, they know the laws of magic.
And musallam he feels that he's he's, he feels that
you're up you know?
I'm, I'm overpowered. overpowered here.
And the law says, you know be the law says fougeres a phoenix Akita. He had a he had a fear inside him which he didn't reveal on the outside Kiva.
And then Musa RSM was told to throw his stick and he threw down What happened here? What happened is
his one actually turned into a real snake. And it wasn't just a real snake. It turned into a massive huge towering
You know, one of those Anna condors what have you and uh, you know, imagine I don't know what but it must have been bigger than that. Because that it was towering over you when he was so large that people actually were ready to run and said, Because Don't forget that the first time was a lesson I'm sorry, he ran
the first time who started I mean, mountune. You know, Allah said to you, what have you got in your hand and he said, in my hand I've got a stake I have taken leads done with it as I basically lean on it and I look after my sheet with Allah says, okay, throw it as you throw it out. When he turned to the seven
comma, comma, comma, comma, touch it, touch it.
It will turn back to where he is. And he came slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly and he touched a thing and returned back to the state. Now he's not stuck here. But in this circle when he threw down
This snake was a real snake, a massive one. Turn give the head did what when
I'm sucked in all the sticks and ropes inside.
Forget showing the little trick. This thing suck told me inside. And then musasa he touched his snake, tell him to stick an ad in his hand. Now they've got no sticks left. They've got nothing to throw the magic with that this is more jeiza this is out. Like what what is it? This is absolutely powerless. These magicians absolutely powerless in front of the magician. So what Allah is doing in the cosmos and what a lie is doing inside the human being is when he shows the scientists, the doctors, whoever they are, when Allah does this, he is showing more desert. He is he showing them that they are absolutely powerless, powerless in front of his his mercy in front of his squadron his
power. And that is Allah azza wa jal. So when we that is one thing Allah has given us to think about when you want to think about his existence, I'm coming back to my original point, original point is that if you human beings, imagine that you're talking about bacteria on the ground.
Can you ever make these bacteria on the ground? that it thinks that this whole is his universe? Can you make that bacteria understand ever? what it is to know the world? Can you ever do that?
And if he was to look at you as a human being, and he's Wow, these are the people that you know, rule the earth, right? So if I know one of these, and I know who it is, has he got that bacteria got any way of understanding the human mind? The brain? Yes or no guys? No. Has he even got point? 000000 1% have any way of understanding the human being or what we are? Yes or no? No. So Allah is telling us and showing us that if this is your creation, if this is you, and there's other creation, no way they will ever understand you and your creation, there is no way you will understand me.
There is absolutely no way a human being can sit here and start thinking about Allah. Allah was this allows that all these philosophers, all these philosophers are just wasting their time. Because what they're doing, if you start to think about Allah, you're doing 111 is conjecture. You play a guessing game. You've got no proof. You're just playing with your mind, and about possibilities and unanswered in your own loved one. all they're doing is they are pursuing their conjecture, their own guesstimation their own guesses and their own estimation. Where are you going to call it about Allah? Allah says, 1111 Allah, you will need mineral hot dish, a
swan conjecture, thought where you've got no proof gives you reveals you nothing of the truth reveals you nothing of the truth. So the whole of philosophers, all of the philosophers, philosophers, and all of their different
different departments and people and all of their books and all of the literature and all of the you know, all of the atheists and other one whoever has thought about a larger agenda, and they made this conclusion that conclusion. They are just bacteria on the carpet.
What are they brothers?
They're just bacteria inside the carpet on the surface of this cup. And they think, that they have known and reached the end of knowing Allah azza wa jal how Allah Allah
and any Muslim that feels that they can think about Allah and come to conclusions you cannot there is absolutely no way you can i mean if I give you if I just say to you, can you actually imagine what it is about infinite? infinite infinite means that it has no end? Allah is infinite
alive infinite. So let's just think about you know, people peoples was foresight is about about the past. So what was there before Allah this was sort of the shaken gifts now Okay, let's let's just say let's just say to those people who have that was so sad that okay, Allah azza wa jal is infinite yes or no. So the so called lies infinite. Now, ask any human being to think about infinity contrite
Think about something that is endless
that you try and come to the end of but it doesn't end it just carries on going and trying to see the end doesn't end he goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Now if I leave you here for 24 hours, yeah, I still thinking about infinity, you can even go mad.
If I leave you for a week you will be hospitalized.
Because the human being can't think about it, you can, you can understand infinity by concept.
But you cannot actually physically
feel it or comprehend it in a way that you fully, you fully can, you know with your with your mind, you've got an experience of it, you can't experience infinity. The same way if you can't do that, that way, you cannot understand allas infinity backwards, was to you is backwards. So allies not backwards to human being, they will think oh, allows this all before thinking about backward. Why? Because the human being is is got a past behind him. He's got a present right now. And he's got a future ahead of him. So the human being can only think about past present future. Allah has no past. Allah has no prison. Allah has no future because Allah created the past electricity the present
unlike creates a future Allah has done
so Allah has never had a past, unless never had the past. Never had a present, never had a future. None of these, none of these apply to Allah. None of these apply to Allah. Allah azza wa jal simply, he was there that's a hadith says kind of La velashape marang. He was he was always just they're always just there. And then once he decided he wanted to create, he created the pen.
I want to show you in Haleakala, the first thing that Allah created called How to Muslim is the pen. So he told the pen, he created the tablet. And then Allah said to the pen, right now onto the tablet. So the pen wrote on the tablet, and he wrote, everything that allowed would now create
the whole of his creation, it was written on this tablet, then he created, you know the angels we created some existence of this or that, you know, of the of the cosmos or he created whatever he creates, you know, of this whole universe, of the earth, of the skies of the gases, whatever he created, he created that, but this was when Allah decided to do that. But Allah has always been there.
You know, who will lay Sakaguchi
he if you want to think about First they you just say Allah is the first but we don't. We don't mean allies, the first in the sense that there was a zero and then there was number one, no, there's no such thing as zero with Allah, he was he was always there, existence has always been there. And if you cannot actually get this concept in your head, best thing to do, as I said, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Is takatoshi halkyn law. You think about the creation of Allah, but you don't actually think about Allah azza wa jal names of okay the next
next session. When you come back, we are going to go straight to the names of Rahman. And Rahim.
Can you say the beginning of the phrase that were suddenly memorized last week? Who last one who Allah Kwan who Allahu la de la ilaha illa who are man, after that inshallah after we, as we do one name at a time shall I will try and memorize this
