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

Say hello to him, we begin In the name of Allah subhana wa tada geladeira who

00:00:09--> 00:00:14

who is the most merciful and the most magnificent.

00:00:15--> 00:00:23

The Arabic You see there is tala Mala. And under that you see the English translation of that which is connecting with another man of that

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

the purpose of our creation is to connect with our

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

worship and Islam is not simply a ritual to be performed. Worship in Islam is to establish a connection with our Creator. Our creator is one who said about himself was Samuel Mercier. He's the one who's here, and he's the one who sees real time

00:00:49--> 00:01:19

everyday. So therefore, it makes eminent sense for us to talk to you. And it makes eminent sense for us to be his within courts, closest friend, not friend as in we are friendly to each other because that implies a level of equity, the creators the Creator, the creatures are creatures, but friendship with the Creator, we live with the Creator, being a Wali of Allah, while he is the Arabic

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

is one of the Arabic words for

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

for

00:01:27--> 00:01:55

friend, but when he is the closest form of friend in Arabic, there are many words for friend, not just one, and each word denotes a level of friendship. So Allah subhanaw taala himself said a low value levina Allah said Allah is the worry of the people who believe of the believers. So therefore to build a connection with Allah subhanaw taala and that's what I want to try and

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

speak to you about in the next 20 minutes or so.

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

The to go from here.

00:02:05--> 00:02:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala began the four an the first words revealed word these words were Allah subhanho wa Taala degrade la Salaam, the angel Gabriel came to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he came to the Prophet Muhammad's and sell them with this revelation. And he said, A Cora, this smear of the color, the color. He said, read in the name of your rock, who created all that exists? One of the great scholars of Islam.

00:02:36--> 00:02:41

Jacques Vallee, he said that there are two books of Allah.

00:02:42--> 00:03:04

He said, one is the open book. And that open book, he said is the universe. One is the open book, which is the universe. And he said, the second book is the book that needs to be open to read and that is the for animal carry. So reading means to recognize the signs of the Creator in his creation.

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

Now,

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

what did Allah subhanaw taala tell us about his creation?

00:03:12--> 00:03:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala drew our attention specifically to his creation, where he said in Surah, two algebra and I have the Arabic there and the English translation below that when Tara said, in a vehicle this summer was given out of the landfill at one Marina.

00:03:33--> 00:04:21

Allah said, Behold, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the day and the night, there are indeed signs for people of understanding. I remind you and myself that the Koran is not a book of science. It is a book of science. It is a book of indicators that draw our attention to the glory and magnificence of our Creator. So while you are listening to me, I want to ask you to ask yourself, one word as you listen to the glories of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Very few of them, some of them because we are constricted by time that I want to draw to your attention. And that word I want you to remember ask is why? Ask yourself why.

00:04:22--> 00:04:22

Now,

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

unless random data created

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

the blue wave,

00:04:30--> 00:04:49

the largest creature ever, to be created on the face of the planet, 32.9 meters long, which is 108 feet 172 metric tons in weight, which is 190 tonnes

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

do it

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

that is the heart of a blue whale. It's a model of the heart of a blue whale and the mandate is to give you

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

A size reference. As you can see, the blue whale is a big hearted creature.

00:05:08--> 00:05:36

Now the core of the blue whale, and these have been recorded, there are some beautiful recordings of whale calls on the on YouTube, you must listen to that the core of the blue whale, the volume, the sound of it is 188 decibels. Whereas to give you a comparison, a jet engine, the sound of a jet engine, the jet blast is 140 decibels. So the color of a blue whale is louder than the color of a jet. And

00:05:38--> 00:05:47

people have recorded the call of blue whales calling off the coast of California, they recorded them in Japan,

00:05:48--> 00:06:00

across the Pacific Ocean. So if you want a blue whale, and you want to talk to your friend in the UK, or Saudi Arabia, or India or Pakistan or wherever, you will not need a phone, you could just talk.

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

The turn of a blue whale weighs four tonnes, which is the same as an Asian elephant.

00:06:10--> 00:06:58

The mouth of a blue whale holds 90 metric tons. And the reason I put that truck there, which is a caterpillar truck, is because that truck has a payload of 10 tons, the mouth of a blue whale can hold nine payloads of that truck. But if you are swimming in the ocean, and you suddenly find yourself inside the mouth of a blue whale, because a blue whale passed and you are there, don't worry, it can swallow you because the blue whale cannot swallow anything bigger than a beach ball. Blue Whales are among that group of mammals. Incidentally, whales are not fishes, you know, which are called baleen whales. Effectively what that means is, the blue whale draws into its mouth, this

00:06:58--> 00:07:11

enormous volume of water and passes it through what are called valleys which are like cifs. And in these saves, all the floating things which is zooplankton

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

and krill, mainly

00:07:17--> 00:08:00

they get stuck and that and that in the in the balance and the tongue scripts them off. Right zooplankton and phytoplankton, krill everything. So if it's scraped off, goes down the gullet, the gallon doesn't need to be big, but the blue whale eats, that's the way to eat. So if you are in the middle of relax, it will spit you out. Anyway, Blue Whales don't eat junk food, the blow of the blue air. I don't know how many of you have done whale watching. But I surely hope that after listening to this one, you're going to go to subway and watching the way you spot whales is you see this fountain coming out in the ocean. So there is a way now that she blows those of you who have read

00:08:00--> 00:08:51

Moby Dick. This is the law of a blue whale. That's how they breed they blow the water out of a hole on top of the head. Now that single stream is 40 to 50 feet, I 12 to 15 meters high. The carve of a blue whale, those of you who like to have pets, the calf of a blue whale weighs 2700 kilograms, that is 6000 pounds, and drinks 400 litres of milk per day. So if you wanted to have a calf of a blue whale as a pet, you would need a dairy farm as well because it brings a lot of Bill. And incidentally doesn't cow's milk as you call, it drinks his mother's milk. And that mother's milk is so rich in fat, it's almost like paste. It is hugely, hugely nutritious, and the calf drinks 400

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

liters of that per day.

00:08:54--> 00:09:19

Now that is I couldn't find a picture of a blue whale breaching as it's called, which is literally flying through the air. That's the picture of a humpback whale breathing, but that's what blue whales also do. And I imagine the power because the basically the tail of the whale, which drives it out, which gives you the speed or it rises out of the water. Imagine the power of the trail that can get 170 metric tons airborne.

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

Now that is an Antarctic krill,

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

which is

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

about it weighs one gram, one gram

00:09:36--> 00:09:58

and that takes krill and they have a lifespan of between five to 10 years. Imagine this thing which weighs one gram lives in the open ocean can live for five to 10 years. Of course that depends on not coming into contact with fluids. Now why am I telling you what Antarctic quills because

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

Blue Whales eat and Taktik krill, and they eat 40 million of them, which is 3.6 tons per day.

00:10:13--> 00:10:18

Now that is a picture of the Antarctic krill on the tip of the finger to give you a

00:10:20--> 00:10:39

comparison sites. Now, what is the question to ask? Why? Why am I Why should you ask that question? Because if you were designing an animal that size, with a mouth capacity of that size, what would you decree as the food of that animal?

00:10:41--> 00:11:18

Right? Maybe you would say that this animal must eat the great white shark or it must eat. Maybe it must eat a Amtrak train or something. Right? Huge things massive things, because it's got this massive mouth is a huge, huge, huge, massive animal. Why did Allah subhanaw taala decree Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed that this massive animal will eat something which is one gram in which and for the plant and zooplankton which I mentioned to you. Some of them are microscopic.

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

Others are not microscopic, but they are much smaller than the Antarctic

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

question to ask, why?

00:11:33--> 00:11:55

Let's go to another part of the ocean and that's called the Mariana Trench. The Mariana Trench is off the Mariana Islands, which are off the coast of Japan. The deepest part of the Mariana Trench is called the Challenger Deep, and there it is 11 kilometers below the sea level that is 11 kilometers below sea level.

00:11:57--> 00:12:21

Now, why am I telling you that because Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak in the world, if you take Mount Everest and drop it into the bottom of the Mariana Trench, it will have another three kilometers of water above the tip of the mountain after the mountain is sunk to the bottom of the of Challenger Deep off the Mariana Trench. That is how deep that trench is.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

Now, why am I telling you what is

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

because

00:12:27--> 00:12:45

the pressure the water pressure, the column of water at the bottom of the Mariana Trench has a pressure of eight tons per square inch. That is the equivalent of 48 Boeing 747. Jets for school square inch. Now,

00:12:46--> 00:13:03

why is that important? Because if you just take for example, if you take an atomic submarine to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, just by the weight of the water, it will get flattened, like a can of coke under the tire of a truck.

00:13:06--> 00:13:24

Very inhospitable place. Number two, total darkness. Sunlight has never entered the Mariana Trench from the day Allah subhanho wa Taala created this earth and from the day he created the sun no

00:13:25--> 00:13:29

sunlight doesn't go into the ocean more than a few 100 meters anyway.

00:13:31--> 00:13:44

And not even a few 100 meters much less than the temperature at the bottom of Mariana Trench is two to three degrees Celsius, just two degrees above freezing point 24 hours 12 months of the year.

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

Right now

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

what lives there

00:13:52--> 00:14:09

Now you might say why should anything live there Rob? I mean look at his condition they something which is completely pitch dark. It has God it's freezing cold and on top of that it has this enormous pressure if that pressure can smash a nuclear submarine How can anything live there?

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

You know what?

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

Angela angler fish

00:14:17--> 00:14:20

the fine tooth fish so very charming cooking

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

the second octopus lives there

00:14:26--> 00:14:30

now what's the question was why?

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

The last time I checked Believe me these were not made of titanium steel.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

How do they live?

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

What do they eat?

00:14:44--> 00:14:49

Let me take you from the bottom of the ocean to up in the air. The bar tailed garbage.

00:14:51--> 00:14:57

Little word about that size fits into your it will fit into your into your into your hand into the palm of your hand

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

migrates

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

From

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

the Arctic Circle

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

from Alaska,

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

all the way down to New Zealand,

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

flying nonstop nine days and nights.

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

Think about that. This is not an albatross coasting on a 12 foot wingspan.

00:15:23--> 00:15:35

Taking advantage of thermals. No, this is a little bird that big. It's beating its wings, flying nonstop nine days and nights.

00:15:36--> 00:15:55

What does that mean? It means a sunrises or sunsets, the bird is flying. There are oceans underneath the bird is flying. There are forest underneath the bird is flying. There are cities underneath the bird is flying. It is raining, the bird is flying. It is night the bird is flying. It is day the bird is flying, it is snowing, the bird is flying.

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

Or you might say well why on earth?

00:16:03--> 00:16:25

Does this bird need to go from the Arctic Circle from north of Alaska, all the way to New Zealand because our ornithologist and others say well you know it has to eat? Well, you know, there are a lot of tgis in America, a lot of nice pubs in the UK.

00:16:26--> 00:16:32

There are many places to eat. It doesn't have to fly nine Days and Night all the way to New Zealand

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

to eat

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

so what's the question to ask? Why?

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

Let me take another word.

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

That's a picture I took in Assam in the north of India and that is a bar headed goose

00:16:54--> 00:17:00

now Barrera, geese, and amazing creatures, they fly in the jet stream current

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

at a height of 33 34,000 feet.

00:17:06--> 00:17:18

Now, what are the conditions is the Jetstream current, the conditions Jetstream current are that the temperature there is minus 59 degrees Celsius.

00:17:22--> 00:17:35

The jet stream is a very fast moving piece of air. And that temperature allow and that speed of air allows these geese to travel 1000 miles in a day.

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

So think about this. These geese again, they start off in Alaska in in in that in the Arctic Circle in Siberia in

00:17:47--> 00:17:55

Alaska. They go straight up in the air 33 34,000 feet, and they go 1000 miles.

00:17:56--> 00:18:24

You know there was a time when if you were on an international flight, the pilot would tell you we are cruising at an altitude of so much of so many feet. And I notice they don't seem to try they seem to focus more on how to fasten your seat belt which is kind of ridiculous. But anyway, everybody knows how to do that. But the the outside atmosphere and the outside temperature all of this used to be told to us but nowadays they don't do that. But if for those of you who are interested.

00:18:26--> 00:19:10

planes fly at 40,000 feet, you know one of the reasons is because you don't want to add 34 35,000 feet when you are in a in a plane. If you look out a window and you see a flock of bar headed geese you know what you need to do? You need to search our La ilaha illallah wa shawanna Muhammad Rasulullah La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, you know what you need to say that because you want the kalama to be the last thing on your tongue before you meet you're up. Because at 34,000 feet if you look out your window and you see a flock of geese, you are about to become toast. Because if those geese get sucked into your engine, you are dead. And the end players don't want to

00:19:10--> 00:19:17

fly pilots don't want that to happen. So they fly at 40,000 feet well away from migrating geese.

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

Why does this goose have to go all the way up?

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

Minus 59 degrees Celsius temperature? Almost no oxygen.

00:19:29--> 00:19:35

And the last time I checked I didn't see any battered geese with the oxygen tanks on the back.

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

What's the question to ask? Why?

00:19:45--> 00:19:57

Let me take you to another one. And this is one of my favorite and right now these are up here in America. I don't know if you guys see them and rally or not but they are up here. This is the Ruby throated Hummingbird

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

with the

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

The female weighs more than the male. The female weighs about four and a half grams.

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

Where do they live? They live in South America in the Amazonian rainforest.

00:20:12--> 00:20:47

Talking about migrating for food. There is no reason for the Ruby throated Hummingbird to migrate for food because the Ruby throated Hummingbird is not living in Alaska, there's no snow to contend with. It is living in the Amazonian rainforest. That is like me living inside a bar of chocolate and surrounded by the food or like wheat. But the Ruby throated Hummingbird migrates, and it migrates from South America, across the Gulf of Mexico, to North America, to the bank of the Mississippi River and Dr.

00:20:48--> 00:21:05

It flies across the Gulf of Mexico, a distance of 600 miles 975 kilometers. It flies nonstop in a time of 25 or 26 hours.

00:21:07--> 00:21:10

They have grown to a speed of about 25 miles per hour.

00:21:12--> 00:21:24

What does that mean? It means that this little thing, which is four grand you know what it's worth four and a half grand five grand. five grand is one teaspoon. So a Ruby throated Hummingbird weighs less than a teaspoon of sugar.

00:21:26--> 00:22:09

So this part now is crossing the Gulf of Mexico. What does that mean? It means that sunrise the bird takes off from the southern end of the Gulf of Mexico. As the sun is rising, the bird is flying. The sun is at the center, midday the bird is flying. The sun has said the bird is flying all through the night the bird is flying. No more no stars, pitch dark night, the bird is flying, does not lose direction does not lose energy. Today, two hours into the new day the bird lands in the United States of America without a visa on the bank of the Mississippi River.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

What's the question to ask? Why?

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

And tell you the answer.

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

The answer is so that you understand and reflect on the ire of Allah subhanho wa jal on the thing which Allah told us and what is that? Allah? Allah, Allah, Allah?

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

Ma,

00:22:43--> 00:23:01

si, Alessandra, do they not see the words of them, spreading out their wings and folding them? None of them except our rough man except Allah. When he sees everything. Ask yourself, this little bird. And it's not only one of them.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

All of them.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

The word is bird does.

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

Human beings cannot even do an Ironman competition. When this little bird, middle of the night pitch dark, it's flying across the open water open ocean, who sees it? Who cares? The bird cannot land if it lands in the water, it's fish food.

00:23:25--> 00:23:43

Who who carries it? Who takes it across? Why is it happening? Why? So that you and I can recognize the signs of our Creator jelajah Lalu glorian magnificence, be to Him and acknowledge Him as our Creator. And as the only one worthy version.

00:23:45--> 00:23:57

Why all this variety, just think about that. If the best way to migrate is what the bar added goes does that every single Migratory Bird must go and hit the Jetstream current and go

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

to the to the

00:24:03--> 00:24:03

variety.

00:24:05--> 00:24:13

The variety show that we recognize the one the Creator who only makes originals, no copies

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

will bring me to one of my favorite ones, which is a man called Wilson Bentley.

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

Who photographed snowflakes for 46 years.

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

From 1885 to 1931. The man photographed snowflakes. And he was up here where I am now in in New England. He was up here in the north in in New Hampshire, and Maine. Not Not now here in Maine. Here are some pictures that Wilson Bentley took and remember we talking about 1885 Wilson Bentley died in 1931. taking photographs of snowflakes he got pneumonia

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

And he passed away. Talk about passion for something the man died doing the work that he was passionate about. He was using a box camera. And he figured out a way where he would catch a snowflake on a piece of black felt black velvet. And he had to take the picture before the snowflake melted, or became sublimated.

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

He figured out a way of using a microscope along with his camera. And he did that for 46 years.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

Here are some of his some of his pictures.

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

Take a look at it.

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

You know, the greatest discovery of Wilson Bradley

00:25:48--> 00:25:54

Wilson made his discovery was that the structure of every snowflake is unique.

00:25:55--> 00:26:09

The structure of every snowflake is unique. We are coming into winter now. And when you look at snow, I want you to think about that. I want you to take a teaspoon of snow and ask yourself how many snowflakes are in

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

the structure of every single one of them is different.

00:26:15--> 00:26:40

I was talking to I was doing this presentation, Glory of Islam and so on in India once and one of the people asked me a question. He said Why can't Why didn't God just create one kind of thing. And this was an engineering companies. He said like an extrusion plant. Something goes through one and it comes out exactly the same as you go Chop Chop, chop, chop, you've got 25 minutes, I said to him, let me ask you a question. I said if you have two artists,

00:26:41--> 00:26:48

one of them makes this beautiful, absolutely fabulous painting and makes 99

00:26:49--> 00:27:10

color photocopies of this paint. He takes 99 photographs of this one painting and he is exhibiting 100 paintings. Each of them do the work but the same painting. And you got another artist who has done 100 originals. I said who's the better artist who's the bigger artist? I said that is a lot.

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

That is a lot for the barakallahu I salute

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

infinite variety increase.

00:27:20--> 00:27:25

The best operators Blessed is the one with the best of theatres.

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

And last minute data challenged us where he said in circle facilite Allah subhanaw taala said we will show them our science suddenly he Maya Tina, Phil kivar fee unfussy him,

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

yada yada la boom.

00:27:45--> 00:28:11

Allah said that we will show them our signs in the universe, and in themselves, until it becomes clear to them that this book, this message this for an is the truth. And Allah said that he is not sufficient in regard to your to your up to your Lord, that he is the witness over all things. So I asked you, who is Allah?

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

Who are you worshiping?

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

Who have you brought faith in?

00:28:18--> 00:28:23
