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

Salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Masha Allah

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

illallah wa whoa la sharika

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

wa shadow Mohammedan abito who

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

Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in filoli Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayyidina Muhammad in fill 15 Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in film Allah Allah Allah, Allah Almighty.

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

Today inshallah we have a very short Surah

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

40 plus versus

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

a surah means that chapter

00:01:00--> 00:01:11

chapter 13, and almost half and this is sort of rot the thunder, that is the name of the surah.

00:01:13--> 00:01:36

And again, brothers and sisters in Islam we are not explaining the surah word by word or verse by verse, rather we're seeking the higher aim the main message the surah is conveyed and we try to understand and assemble the

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

industrial era. In light of that

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

the aim which we use

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

for this particular chapter,

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

is the truth versus falsehood.

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

And the reason why we chose this particular aim if you look at this surah

00:02:03--> 00:02:16

Look at verse number 17. The thurible which Allah subhanho wa Taala set in this chapter, indicate that this is the main theme of the Sol

00:02:18--> 00:02:25

Allah subhana wa tada set a parable in this chapter for the truth and falsehood.

00:02:26--> 00:02:53

Angela Meena sama EMA and festhalle at our de cada tamela sailu zabba then robbia woman una de narrativa Hindi at in our meta in Java dummy flow, gallica, Obama will have one bottle is the parable regarding the running water.

00:02:54--> 00:03:45

And when you notice a running stream it carries on the top of it foam law says this form is the falsehood and Subhanallah that form normally disappears after a while provided that the water keeps running. So the truth as long as you're in the truth and you keep walking with the truth, rest assure any falsehood which is trying to hinder you trying to stop you will fade away gradually but you just have to keep running and inshallah will come but this is what triggered the higher aim here in the surah inshallah, like I said the F word you always look for the name of the soul or the period of revelation or

00:03:46--> 00:04:14

the verse or group of verses or a story mentioned in the sutra and this is what normally triggers that higher aim that higher aim and this parable is a fascinating parable and inshallah we'll talk about it in more details in the later inshallah wanna stick to the 45 minutes mark so we're starting now inshallah tiny please desert mala failla

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

Here is what we have of agenda nine items, but very short, all of them are very short.

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

From use of the few remember the last chapter is Surah Yusuf and the story of Prophet Joseph, peace be upon him, sir. So from use of Torah, there is a beautiful connection here between the two. I will indicate I will try to shed some light on this inshallah. The second is the name of the chapter and its relationship with the higher aim which we chose the false hood, the truth versus the false hood, what the thunder

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

has to do with this. The threat of Revelation is very interesting point because there is a debate regarding the fact whether this chapter around is mechi, meaning revealed before he Jura or methoni after the Hydra,

00:05:18--> 00:05:28

and then we'll produce the higher end to you. And the relationship between the three chapters and this chapter, I would like to make a connection there.

00:05:29--> 00:06:03

You're going to have to memorize this line, which is number six, Allah His Lordship necessitates his warship. And I'll explain that the fascinating parable and the creation must lead to the Creator. And the subjects of the soul are three main and three SOPs, very short ones, inshallah, let's begin. So hon Allah, Allah Subhana, WA tada towards the end of surah Yusuf. He says, In verse number 105, what

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

fish do you want out of the moon?

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

Your moon,

00:06:14--> 00:06:31

man, mo audioboom? How many signs out there in the heavens and the earth that people can see? So Pamela, and people look at these signs, and they never

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

reflect and ponder, to at least ask who created them?

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

Who created the heavens and the earth?

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

You see, he did not come into this world, and you found and then the heaven and the earth, the heavens and the earth came into existence. But you came into this world and you found the heavens and the earth in existence? Shouldn't you ask, Who created that?

00:07:02--> 00:07:12

Look at the next one. And 106 in Surah. Yusuf is in reference to the Arabs in particular.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

Obama, you know,

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

Bill

00:07:19--> 00:07:27

moshiri coup, and a lot of people yes, they believe in Allah, but they associate someone in worship with him.

00:07:29--> 00:07:45

And who did this the Arabs? You need to understand that the Arabs who received that revelation initially, they never denied Allah, being the Creator, being the Sustainer being the provider, they never deny this fact.

00:07:46--> 00:07:53

They believe that we have actually that verse, whether in CELTA home and 100%. It will.

00:07:54--> 00:08:09

If you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they will say Allah. But what did they deny? They deny the fact that Allah has to be worshipped straight, that you can go straight to Allah, you have to go through intermediaries, you have to go through a medium.

00:08:10--> 00:08:33

And they define that medium to be their idols. So for me to go to Allah, I have to go through up the idol. That's why they used to hold that argument. We're not worshipping the idols, we're worshipping Allah. But these idols bring us closer to who? to Allah. And they normally use this interesting argument. If you want to see a president,

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

do you go straight to the president? Or you go through the secretary?

00:08:39--> 00:09:17

So who's better here? The President or Allah? You see, that's an argument, but this doesn't make any sense. No, you're supposed to go straight to your Creator without anyone. Anyone in between. He created you. And that's what Allah subhana wa tada is mentioning it. Remember to understand the depth of this verse, you need to realize that the Arabs never denied allies lordship, you're going to hear that word lordship a lot when we say lordship, that our Luckily, is the one who created everything owns sovereign to takes care of his creation.

00:09:19--> 00:09:45

Those three provides, provides. So when we say lordship, I know the word load is I mean, what was the most recent time you heard the word Lord, the movie Lord of the Rings, right? That that's the only time but Lord in the Quran, which is the Arabic version of it totally means a different thing. Lord means what he creates.

00:09:47--> 00:09:50

He owns it. sovereign.

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

He did not let go of it. Free. He takes care of what he created.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

He gives life

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

He causes death. He benefits he causes harm. If you get yourself in trouble, that's who our Lord is. That that's a lot that's the the Arabs never denied this but they denied what the fact that Allah is to be worshipped straight and Serato rock comes and emphasize this salata rod and that's the connection between a rock and use of

00:10:26--> 00:10:33

the name of the chapter this surah or this chapter takes its name from verse number 13

00:10:35--> 00:10:41

which says while you suck beautiful raw Adobe handy one

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

two min p

00:10:45--> 00:10:50

00 Sawa you see me

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

do nothing. Hema Masha De Niro.

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

This is the verse And Allah subhana wa Tada. Look at this and the thunder.

00:11:07--> 00:11:24

Praise glorifies warships, Allah, the thunder, imagine the thunder glorifies and praises him Allah subhana wa Taala. And so do the angels because of the all and he sends the thunder bullets

00:11:25--> 00:11:39

there with his strikes whom He wills, yet people human are still disputing regarding Allah, whether there is a law or not, whether there is a God or not.

00:11:41--> 00:11:45

What is the relevancy? What is the relationship between the name and the aim?

00:11:46--> 00:11:58

First, the surah some of the people may assume that the surah talks about the you know, the phenomena the the the, the scientific concept of thunder, no, that sort of doesn't talk about that.

00:11:59--> 00:12:18

The surah doesn't talk about how the thunder is formed or or the surah doesn't talk about that. You know, we that's not what the soul of but here it is. Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling you that truth can be seen or heard. Recognize, like the thunder, if you sincerely seek it,

00:12:20--> 00:12:29

that believe in Allah is like the thunder out there is obvious, but you have to seek it sincerely. You have to be looking for it.

00:12:31--> 00:12:48

The second thing, the thunder and the thunder pullets which scare us sometimes and may cause our death. Don't we have people dying because of a thunder? strike? Subhan Allah Look at this. They are in a state of submission to Allah.

00:12:49--> 00:13:18

Okay, the creator. Meanwhile, the human beings are still disputing regarding the existence Actually, yeah, they were worse than the Arabs now. We have a theist people even who, who deny the fact that Allah created things. You know, at least the Arabs were one level in Saudi Arabia, some they had some soundness there. But we have actually people now in our world, they are called atheists, they say there is no such thing called God. They actually believe that

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

for you.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

period of Revelation,

00:13:24--> 00:13:50

a very extensive DBQ between the schools regarding whether this chapter around the thunder was revealed in Mecca and Medina or many we say Mecca before Hydra, Medina after Hydra. But if you look at the internal evidence, you will see that this is a map key 100%

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

revealed in Mecca.

00:13:53--> 00:14:05

And it is revealed towards the end of time, the end of time in Mecca at the end of the period, the murky period. Why? Because it focuses and emphasizes the hate monotheism.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

Also, it doesn't have a Can

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

you see the the matki Quran focused on bringing people to believe in Allah.

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

But very delicately Ayesha says, for 13 years old, what we know from the Quran, who's Allah, Jenna and Hill for 13 years?

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

Who's Allah?

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

And what happens if you believe in Him, you want to get gender in this world?

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

You're going to be psychologically sound

00:14:44--> 00:14:50

crazy. In the face of all these calamities and trials, and in the Hereafter, you will get gender.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

And if you refuse, you're going to be depressed. Having hell in this world, running behind.

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

I'm a mirage somewhere right? and in the hereafter Hill that's all the new for 13 years and if you look at this chapter it's like that but the madonie Quran the Quran which was revealed in Medina we're talking about people who are now up committed to the mission people who believe will have to hate now allies telling them what to pray this way fast this way deal with the non Muslims this way Jews deal with them this way Christians deal them with this way. Okay, this is up zeca so we're talking about what religious rulings

00:15:36--> 00:15:48

what we call what can Sharia there is no such a thing in the MKI in this chapter regarding the Sharia regarding a camera sorry there is nothing there. If you look at it, there is nothing there.

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

Also, this surah belongs to the family of Allah.

00:15:55--> 00:16:09

Ma even though there is an extension there it is. Alif Lam Meem raw, but it still falls into the family of Alif Lam raw and all the chapters which started with la flair ma or Mackey.

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

So this one for sure has to be within that.

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

Are we doing okay? I'm trying to be fast and too fast for you.

00:16:22--> 00:16:41

Salaam Alaikum communicate with me. I'm very friendly. I don't buy it. I don't eat. You know, I like my students. You guys are okay. doing okay? Don't get the basis. Okay. Should I slow down a little bit? Okay. This is all warming you up before we get into the chapter.

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

Okay, here we go.

00:16:46--> 00:17:05

Yet, and this is what invited? I'm sorry. And this is what invited some of the schoolers to question the fact that it's a maddening. Why two verses because of two verses. Verse number 36. And the last verse, which is 43, I believe? Yes.

00:17:06--> 00:17:23

There is a reference to the people of the book, who are the people of the book, Christian and Jews with it. The people of the book exists in Mecca and Medina, in Medina. So that's what invited them to also think that this chapter, look at the last verse as an example.

00:17:25--> 00:17:29

Why akula de Naka, fabulist, termo, Rosetta

00:17:31--> 00:17:39

and those who disbelieve in you, they say that you're not a messenger, you have not sent

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

you don't have

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

a mission?

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

Will Kapha will he?

00:17:55--> 00:18:03

say to them sufficient for me as a witness? is Allah and those who have the knowledge of the Scripture?

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

Meaning who the people of the book

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

you are to ask this question here who?

00:18:15--> 00:18:22

Why did the Jews choose Medina, in particular, and they live there?

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

Yeah.

00:18:28--> 00:18:34

Not only the description, you see, it's written that he will migrate to that place.

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

Imagine this.

00:18:37--> 00:18:41

Where did the Jews live beforehand? They used to live in Yemen.

00:18:43--> 00:18:46

That Kingdom of Sheba and

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

and when that civilization was destroyed,

00:18:51--> 00:19:03

the most learned of the Jews went for Medina. They look for that city where there is a lot of boundaries, because it's written in the Torah. That is where the messenger will migrate to.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

was actually from Quran kayfabe

00:19:08--> 00:19:21

how the Quran talks about this lady and I do not receive food and the e l o me Allah de Luna Houma tube and Fedora t well in G.

00:19:22--> 00:19:28

And if you really want to know what I'm talking about in detail, read the story of who

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

sells man.

00:19:31--> 00:19:35

Remember, Selman used to be transferred from one

00:19:36--> 00:19:49

Christian to another Christian priests. And at the end when the the last one was dying, he said, Where should I go now? I said, Listen, I don't know anybody out there in the face of this earth. But this is the time of the messenger who will migrate to that town

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

with a lot of bold trees.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

It says man, go back home and read the story of Solomon. How he accepted Islam right is in the law.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

once said that to him, he that it's the time of a messenger who will come from the line of Ishmael,

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

who will migrate to account in the Arabia with a lot of boundaries. And that's what the prophet is referring to here.

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

For you, let's introduce the subject here and I really like this. So panela

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

I decided to present this aim higher aim through this

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

Hadeeth

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

a man who used to be a Christian,

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

or the, you know, the son of hatha McQuarrie.

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

He came to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

And the Prophet said to him,

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

yeah.

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

Oh god.

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

I know what stops you from becoming a Muslim.

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

You think we're weak? Muslims are weak,

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

separated and poor.

00:21:04--> 00:21:11

I swear by a law, that time will come where Islam will prevail will prevail.

00:21:13--> 00:21:28

And you shall see how peace will spread to the extent that a woman shall travel from Sunnah to hadramaut feeling none but Allah subhana wa tada was the Boo, Allah on me and the wolf on her cheek.

00:21:30--> 00:21:34

Imagine the prophets of Salaam said this to a wealthy young man.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

And immediately he accepted Islam.

00:21:40--> 00:21:47

He lived many years after the death of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, and he saw this coming to reality.

00:21:48--> 00:22:05

But again, this man was not accepting Islam because of Muslims are weak. And a lot of people by the way, now they are even though they see Islam to be the truth and it makes a lot of sense to them. But because of our weakness, you need to realize this.

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

They what's those people, you know, the killing one another the they are ignorant. They don't have knowledge. People think this way. There are people who think in that line unfortunately.

00:22:19--> 00:22:54

Who else? The story of surah Soraka was was really somebody you know, Soraka Soraka is somebody that when he heard about the price when the Prophet and his companion, Ababa were fleeing Mecca, and leaving for Medina, the people of Mecca said whoever captured them will give them 100 camels as a prize. So Soraka got on his his horse. And you know that his horse went into the sand and very interesting story. But then the professor Salim said to him, what Listen, you know,

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

one day you will carry the bangles, of hospital of Nigeria, the emperor of Persia. Imagine this.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

The Prophet said that to him.

00:23:08--> 00:23:19

One day, you will bring the crown of the emperor of Virginia. Is he at the time there were two superpowers, Virginia and what?

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

The surface if you're talking about the the emperor of Virginia, he said Yeah. And it happened. He brought it. He actually he's the one who carried it to Oman after that, but again, I think the point I'm trying to make here

00:23:40--> 00:23:52

sometimes there are some people who may not accept Islam because of the weakness of Muslims. Even though they see the power and the strength of the truth of Islam, they know it because

00:23:54--> 00:24:09

brothers, you know you know that thing Intel Inside, you know that that Intel Inside the Microsoft came up with that Intel Inside his LAN is inside every human being. They know it.

00:24:10--> 00:24:21

And when they hear the message, when the when the inside is clear a little bit when they clear up, it will match it will they will recognize it. This is the truth.

00:24:22--> 00:24:37

In the in the ongoing struggle between the truth and falsehood, there are times when falsehood is louder and stronger. Shark is louder and stronger now. atheism is louder and stronger now. They have control.

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

You know, we're complaining about you know that violence which is spreading all over the world now.

00:24:45--> 00:24:51

You know, Subhan Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in an authentic ad, we showed an avatar

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

and he was addressing his companions, he said, five things

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

and I asked her

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

That you don't have to live to see them.

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

Imagine he said this.

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

Number one,

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

when people openly disobey a law

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

and they disclose this and they are proud of this

00:25:19--> 00:25:28

when they do evil, and they are openly doing it, Allah will flag them with diseases, epidemics plagues that they never heard of.

00:25:32--> 00:25:44

Yeah, I know that we're gonna be called anti whatever it is, but we live in a country where people sexual preferences are protected by the law and in no way we're going to harm but look at homosexuality.

00:25:45--> 00:25:51

When you read in the Old Testament, Sodom and Gomorrah, a nation was destroyed.

00:25:53--> 00:26:17

Look at them now coming out and they are trying to teach it to our kids in school when force it on us. Now that's what's gonna happen. That's, you know, it's, it's when you look at these things, you wonder why you want the right. You know, falsehood is louder now and they are in control.

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

falsehood is lambda, atheism is louder than people who want to follow their whims and desires are in control. It is loud. But

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

you see the weakness

00:26:31--> 00:26:43

of the believers does not mean that the truth is weak. No, the truth is strong. It's very strong, and it's very loud, like the thunder, and one day it will be restored.

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

And that's the message of the soul.

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

That's the message of the sole

00:26:49--> 00:26:53

Muslims experience that Muslims experience that

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

I really want to connect the three previous chapters with this chapter.

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

Remember, when we spoke about Jonas hood use of three chapters.

00:27:07--> 00:27:13

These three chapters were revealed towards the end of the Maquis time that week as the Muslims

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

were living the weakest time of Islam.

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

That's the weakest that last three years in Mecca.

00:27:23--> 00:27:31

Chapter, Eunice, Jana, who was a prophet as well, and you also were revealed during the time

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

and Eunice came to tell you I don't what?

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

Don't give up. Don't despair.

00:27:41--> 00:27:51

Chapter who came not, don't give him Don't compromise. Stand your firm stand your ground, not because you're weak, you compromise. Use of came to do what?

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

The patient, it's your own the truth.

00:27:56--> 00:28:03

And Allah has promised you that this truth will one day will will will will will will, will concur Hang in there.

00:28:04--> 00:28:23

So simply these three chapters they came to provide emotional and intellectual support in the face of these challenges. Believers are facing look at the rock. Then comes this chapter in context of the three previous chapters to tell you the truth you're on.

00:28:25--> 00:28:34

For the truth for which you're not giving up for refusing to compromise and your patient in practicing it. One day it will come.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

And this happened or not. What the Prophet did it happened.

00:28:40--> 00:29:00

It happened. And likewise with us, it will happen again. One day Islam will take over again. But when Prophet Jesus comes back, and will Maddie and all that time, you know it wouldn't when Jesus is returned again, that's when Islam will have its second round again.

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

Okay.

00:29:03--> 00:29:19

Look at number two, your your strength comes from the power of the truth you're holding. So your faith should not be shaken. Don't Don't, don't be shaken. Don't wait, you know, don't don't doubt the truth.

00:29:20--> 00:29:27

Yes, for sure you will be challenged by many doubts which the disbelievers will cast or spread against your faith.

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

And yes, you will be intimidated by their glamorous lifestyle and political power. But hang in there man. So only 67 years

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

will be abolished.

00:29:44--> 00:29:57

Even though that's not authentic when they came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, when when the disbelievers in Mecca started following that policy that have the carrot and the stick, you know, they say, oh, Mohammed, you know, worship.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

No, no, the first one is

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

What do you want? You want money, we'll collect money for you. You want to be our king, we'll make you our king. You want to marry will bring a nice wife for you. But give up this stuff, man. Come on. Don't do that. It's not nice. you're dividing us you're talking bad about our way of life. And

00:30:21--> 00:30:27

what did the Prophet say? Even though that's not weak By the way, it's another column by if they place the fun way.

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

And the moon way.

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

I'm not going to give up Don't give up man don't

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

don't because it's costly.

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

Yeah, if what this chapter is amazing,

00:30:43--> 00:30:58

a lot His Lordship and and I really want you to understand this concept, because this concept is going to be repeated over and over and over and over again and again. And again, in every market chapter.

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

Which is what

00:31:03--> 00:31:14

he do. Via that's the Arabic version of it, though heydo rubia? Yes. touji boo, Tao Hayden Oulu here.

00:31:15--> 00:31:22

The fact that you believe that Allah is the one who created the one who owns

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

the one who provides,

00:31:26--> 00:31:34

right? The one who will benefit you, then should lead this should lead you to work towards your boo.

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

That's it. And that's why we're in the public school system that Yeah, they don't talk about God, but what they do, they damage the concept of creation in the minds of our kids.

00:31:49--> 00:31:52

Imagine 12 years your child go to school.

00:31:53--> 00:32:04

Energy creates itself. Or you were a chimpanzee and you became a human? And will the evolution that when

00:32:05--> 00:32:24

they get bits and pieces, the child comes, he comes out of high school What? Well, I don't think there is God man there are multiple because, look, look, the Quran emphasizes what it says is what Allah who hoard in this chapter, by the way. I'm Don Shula, kohala polka healthy betta Shabbat?

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

Do they have partners who created things, which look like what Allah created, and that's why they are confused.

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

He say Allah is the Creator of everything.

00:32:42--> 00:32:52

You see, when you damage that concept of creation in the minds of a person, then you're going, you're gonna end up what believing that there are multiple forces in the face of this earth.

00:32:54--> 00:33:15

And that's why you will, Okay, I gotta serve this force. So the force doesn't harm me. I gotta serve that force. So that force can benefit me understand, that's how we get up to shake. That's how we end up associating others with a law because you're believing that what Tim's what originates, the the benefit and the harm is not a law,

00:33:16--> 00:33:47

or can be a law in association would work with others, or things which influence a lot. You're getting that. So very dangerous. And this chapter emphasizes this chapter rod represents a presents that clarity with clarity, the power of truth, held by the believers and the weakness and the shallowness of disbelievers arguments, the first and the ultimate truth alized lordship, which is always the foundation on which Allah demands his worship,

00:33:50--> 00:33:55

for the first school in the Quran, and once you have that, look at verse number 20, and sort of

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

saw

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

all mankind worship your Lord, why? Allah de holla because He created you, he made you.

00:34:12--> 00:34:16

This tree didn't make you this cow in India didn't make you

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

know, they didn't make you Who made you

00:34:21--> 00:34:25

worship the Creator, the one who made you not that created.

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

You see, that's that's the whole issue. That's the whole concept. And that's the foundation. When we say low GPA. The scholars refer to this sometimes by allies lordship, bravo via creation, sovereignty, dominion, power and majesty, which necessitates his worship. If you believe that then if you're smart, we should watch this one, not someone else. Right? You agree, right. And that's a logical one. That's a logical argument. It has nothing to do with the revelation.

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

And that's how we the beat with

00:35:03--> 00:35:06

the atheist

00:35:07--> 00:35:15

chatter radio shows the ultimate power of Allah His Lordship by Subhana. Allah this chapter is so fascinating.

00:35:16--> 00:35:28

And this is your homework By the way, I'm gonna give you a homework, there are 32 pairs of contrasting entities in this chapter, the one thing like the night and the day, the sun and the moon

00:35:30--> 00:35:44

like this 32 pairs of contrasting entities. The question is who created these in India, you know, that they believe that there is a God for what the dark and the God for what?

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

The light because they cannot

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

comprehend the fact that the one can create what?

00:35:53--> 00:36:24

contrasting what entities know, Allah creates both the one and the opposite, the male and the female, right? He does that. There are 32 fears mentioned in this short chapter. And your job in sha Allah until, I mean, if you choose to do that homework, I mean, it's not like I'm gonna spank you or something, but it's up to you. It's about research, actually. I mean, it would be nice if one of you can work on it. There are 32 peers in this chapter.

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

As well as this fascinating parable, which we're going to deal with it right now. That's the problem. And that's what triggered that hire a

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

look at this. Just take a minute and read this this particular

00:36:40--> 00:36:44

verse in the sword out of this world. Verse number 17,

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

amenas

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

EMA

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

dia to the

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

time Allah say who's

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

the one in

00:37:03--> 00:37:09

una de fin de Vito in,

00:37:10--> 00:37:12

in Java to meet know

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

how

00:37:20--> 00:37:21

to fire

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

found

00:37:29--> 00:37:31

Khufu fill out

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

more.

00:37:38--> 00:37:46

Water comes down rain runs an earth while the water runs it carries What? Dirt,

00:37:48--> 00:37:58

dirt. Imagine we're talking about the desert here running stream dirt and some you know that and the water it ends up forming what

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

Java schools

00:38:03--> 00:38:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala is dealing with this form is the falsehood

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

and it tries to cover the truth

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

and tries to stop the truth from progressing.

00:38:16--> 00:38:25

But as long as the truth is steadfast patient doesn't compromise and it's flowing even slowly.

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

What will happen to the form

00:38:30--> 00:38:45

it will die. God will die. And that's the purpose. And that's how the truth and falsehood is. Look at this error. This verse is very inspiring and full of meanings and depth.

00:38:46--> 00:38:52

This parable set by Allah subhanaw taala describes truth and falsehood in a tangible way.

00:38:53--> 00:39:27

We will see the rain and we seen that if you if you ever been to you know some place where different parts of parts of Earth accepts the train according to its capacity the water then flows along with the with foam forming on top. This form is like the scum produced. When metal is melted. A lot likens the foam and the scum to force to falsehood while the water remains beneficial to human beings. Which is the truth.

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

Through this parable, Allah subhana wa tada wants us to realize the difference between truth and falsehood. Using an example everyone can see

00:39:42--> 00:39:53

how many of us have seen the foam forming over water and dismissed it as just worthless dirt and this is the truth and falsehood.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

We should observe that you know

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

Eventually the foam will disappear. But with one condition, you see if the water stops, the foam will have the truth has to be what

00:40:13--> 00:40:14

you have to keep running.

00:40:15--> 00:40:32

You have to keep walking with the truth. Even if slowly as long as there is a running stream, the form will work. But if you stop and give him give up despair, the full moonwalk will kill you.

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

So, you know, it's it's very interesting.

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

I read a lot of commentaries on this verse as well lay out of this world. Unfortunately, a lot of it is in Arabic. So I did my best and bring in

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

Allah

00:40:53--> 00:41:00

resembles that aim to be like the revelation, the truth which comes down with the messengers, on the messengers.

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

And the earth is your house.

00:41:06--> 00:41:54

And Allah so and the Prophet use this in a hadith and I'll share it with you, the rain falls equally on the surfaces of Earth. But the acceptance and the absorbs the absorption by the ground depends on the your quality, your heart is your heart willing to accept the truth, or your heart heart is contaminated, you know is is filled with whims and desires that you don't want the truth. I don't want to change my way. Now, some soil will absorb enough water for growth and water turns into a fertile place. Other types of soil will not have the capacity to absorb, such as the example of the divine revelation in the human hearts. The wisdom and guidance from Allah comes for everyone. But

00:41:54--> 00:41:59

each human being accepts it and derives benefit from it according to his capacity.

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

This is the Hadith and referring to

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

the Prophet actually use the same example.

00:42:08--> 00:42:14

In a statement by the prophet Victorville Elementary, masala, Moroccan,

00:42:15--> 00:42:26

Buddha, camellia viiith. Look at this, the parable of guidance and knowledge that Allah sent with me is like, is the likeness of rain falling upon the earth.

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

Among them is a good group, which will receive water

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

and

00:42:33--> 00:42:43

they will benefit they will grow grass. And they tell you those are the schools, that people who teach the religion

00:42:44--> 00:42:52

because they understood it, they act upon it, and they teach others. But there are others who will absorb

00:42:54--> 00:43:02

they will be good at themselves. And that's it. They are not going to teach others. But that's still good.

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

The knowledge benefited them. And people see the good example. And they learn from that they actually make our because of their character. But the third is the worst.

00:43:14--> 00:43:20

The author doesn't even you know get there. Again, how do you feel Buhari? A

00:43:21--> 00:43:26

couple of things here quickly, truth will always overcome falsehoods. And I think we made this clear.

00:43:28--> 00:43:40

Truth will always overcome falsehood even if it takes sometimes those who have neither patients nor wisdom to know that they will eventually be the outcome.

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

They will eventually be the outcome or deceived by false for

00:43:47--> 00:44:01

truth and falsehood are sometimes very hard to distinguish based on that. You see the form in the service. Sometimes you really have a hard time knowing which is which based on that terrible

00:44:02--> 00:44:14

and it's true, because falsehood is disguised is disguised as a form of truth. It's part of the water right? The film is in the service of what?

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

So it's mixed together.

00:44:19--> 00:44:24

There are three things that can identify truth from falsehood, truth is always useful.

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

You know, what are you benefiting?

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

You know, you find the people who promote falsehoods they are they are after the destruction of

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

second falsehood is always on the top. And

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

they have they talk a lot they have the

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

best but the truth is what humble is, you know,

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

truth is strong and almost depends on itself. Meanwhile falsehood depends on the truth.

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

See falsehood is coming after the truth. I mean all of these other if it were.

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

The second thing in this chapter

00:45:08--> 00:45:16

is Allah Subhana. Allah is telling you, this creation which you have leads to a creator.

00:45:18--> 00:45:28

This fascinating verse is a beautiful example of how nature can lead the sound human intellect to worship the Creator, Amar.

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

Not that creative.

00:45:32--> 00:45:34

You see people now are worshipping nature.

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

You know, look at this, this is a very simple statement, which you hear on television or in TV, when there is a store. Oh, Mother Nature.

00:45:50--> 00:45:55

Imagine a child is hearing that. So you're telling me Mother Nature is the one who brought the snowstorm.

00:45:57--> 00:46:22

That's very dangerous. You see, no allies, the one who wrote this, you know, he said, it's very important to instill in your child, the Lordship of Allah, that everything that happens, a law is the one who ordained it. That is why Allah subhana wa Taala remind us all the time to look at the creation.

00:46:23--> 00:46:29

Look at this example, in the hope is an hour Do you want to live in a hurry?

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, the alteration of the night of science for people of understanding,

00:46:39--> 00:46:46

if someone to believe that nature, which is the creative, is the God,

00:46:47--> 00:46:51

then they conclude a true false argument, intellectual By the way,

00:46:53--> 00:47:02

which really goes against the soundness of a human intellect and intuition, which is the separate the inside.

00:47:04--> 00:47:07

What are those two argument?

00:47:08--> 00:47:10

The creation was created out of nothing?

00:47:13--> 00:47:18

The creation created itself will you accept that? Will your mind accept that that you created out of nothing?

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

Will you create it out of nothing?

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

Oh, did you create yourself?

00:47:28--> 00:47:29

intellectually This is what

00:47:30--> 00:47:31

unaccepted

00:47:32--> 00:47:34

and this was referred to in the Quran

00:47:35--> 00:47:51

Julio comin ye Rishi, in whom? You look at the second bullet, what are they created out of nothing? Or did they create themselves? Allah said that in the Quran? And that's really the one statement which you say to an atheist?

00:47:53--> 00:48:00

You want to tell me that there is no God, then what are you created out of nothing? Or that you create yourself? Answer me please, Mr. Smart men,

00:48:01--> 00:48:04

they there is no answer to this.

00:48:07--> 00:48:38

So, but when you ponder upon the universal signs, which is the creation here, one must conclude to sound arguments which are intellectually sound and can be easily absorbed by the intuition. Number one, this universe has a creator, no question about it. The second fact, the attributes and the qualities of the Creator must be greater than what he created. You agree right, is the one who creates like the one who created the one who's being created.

00:48:40--> 00:48:46

Right? And this is in the Quran to FMI flow camella flow sort of

00:48:47--> 00:48:53

is then he who creates like the one who is being created?

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

No way.

00:48:56--> 00:49:10

So there must be therefore one must worship the Creator, not the created. Now to find out more about the creator and how to worship him. You need to go to the revelation with the messengers. By we're almost done here.

00:49:11--> 00:49:14

Three main subjects and three sub subjects.

00:49:15--> 00:49:26

Any secondary subjects? Yeah, that's what I meant. I don't know sub subjects is good. English wise. No, help me. I mean, I come up with this stuff, man. I mean, I learned English in public school in Egypt.

00:49:28--> 00:49:30

You know, I used to have a teacher Her name is Samson.

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

I mean, sub subjects is that goodgym

00:49:35--> 00:49:36

secondary subject.

00:49:40--> 00:49:45

So it's correct. Still, not from the law. Okay, I'm doing okay.

00:49:48--> 00:49:55

The surah three main subjects. Number one, the first truth the second truth, the third truth.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

The entire universe belongs to Allah.

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

None beside Allah has the right to be worshipped.

00:50:05--> 00:50:08

The falsehood is the existence of partners.

00:50:09--> 00:50:15

The second truth there is another life after this life, because the team will also deny that

00:50:16--> 00:50:41

the third truth, Mohammed, some love, love it. alayhi wa sallam is a messenger from Allah conveying a message. As the people rejected these three things, these have been Yani repeatedly emphasized in various forms, to remove doubts and objections from the minds of the disbelievers. Let's take a couple of verses and example.

00:50:42--> 00:50:43

Look at the second verse.

00:50:46--> 00:50:53

me more DeLuca tokita one lady owns Eli Eli.

00:50:54--> 00:51:02

Michael Hoffman in axon Scylla. You know, look at this lovely lady.

00:51:04--> 00:51:09

t v v Ahmed in Tanana from

00:51:10--> 00:51:15

love was a hard sell camara

00:51:16--> 00:51:20

really agile in mucem. You the bill

00:51:25--> 00:51:40

Binney, Oppo you're not going to be known. That's lucida right here, but look at it. Look at the last show that you may believe with certainty in the meeting of your lords, signs and proof.

00:51:41--> 00:51:48

Look at this, one who won the Medal of Honor john fee, our CEO

00:51:50--> 00:52:02

and it is he who spread out the earth and plays there in for mountains and rivers, every kind of foods he made to peers, to and peers.

00:52:04--> 00:52:07

All of this again Yeah, but the Lordship of Allah.

00:52:08--> 00:52:15

I look in the earth, there are neighboring tracks and gardens of vines in green.

00:52:17--> 00:52:21

Look at these verses here. But you need these verses that leads you to Allah Subhana

00:52:25--> 00:52:28

Allah knows what every female bears

00:52:29--> 00:52:33

and by how much the womb falls short.

00:52:36--> 00:52:40

All Knower of the unseen and the seen the greatest, the highest.

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

Again, these are to emphasize what the Lordship of Allah that's the first rule because remember the Lordship is the ground on which Allah demands what

00:52:51--> 00:52:54

remember the flying Allah His Lordship necessitates what

00:52:56--> 00:53:10

you guys didn't memorize that yet Allah His Lordship necessitates what his worship Allah His Lordship necessitates his worship. So if you believe Allah did all of this do you go and worship someone else should you? You can't.

00:53:13--> 00:53:15

Again, these are all examples.

00:53:17--> 00:53:23

I love this year for lie I love this verse lovoo de Falco

00:53:25--> 00:53:39

well, Ledeen I mean duni is the G Boone Allah Hoon be shy when you meet two others that the same story do they answer you?

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

But here's what I'm looking for.

00:53:44--> 00:53:49

Here's what I'm looking for. Look at this bill I like read that verse with with with with

00:53:50--> 00:53:56
