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

14 146 years ago,

00:00:28--> 00:00:33

a window opened in the heavens, and God spoke to men.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down His revelation

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

through His Messenger gibril alayhis salam to his messenger Muhammad. Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam,

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

column, I'll

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

read

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

in the case of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The word is to be understood as recite,

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

read,

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

in the name of your robe, who created everything

00:01:48--> 00:01:59

who created all that exists? And He created man from a clutch. Read and your rub is the most gracious a crumb.

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

The superlative form of Kareem

he janela gelato is the one who taught by the pen. And he taught men that which he knew not

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

my brothers and sisters.

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

We follow a religion that is based on a book

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

and we follow our religion were the first word revealed was read.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

And May Allah forgive us We are a people who read the list.

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

In na de la he was in LA Rajan.

00:02:40--> 00:02:48

What was there to read when this ayah was revealed? What was there to read? Because this was the very beginning of the revelation.

00:02:50--> 00:02:56

The command was for us allies Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam and for all of mankind

00:02:58--> 00:03:07

to read the signs of Allah Jalla Allah in the universe, and that is why Allah subhanaw taala Sakura beachmere a beacon lezzy Allah.

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

Allah said read in the name of your Abu created everything.

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

My brothers and sisters It is important for us to reflect it is important for us to think

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

and to say what does it mean when you say column Allah?

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

column is the speech of Allah. It is our Akita, it is our belief that the Quran

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

is the actual speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is God speaking to man.

00:03:39--> 00:03:44

And that's why the the topic of my lecture today is Allah spoke. But did we listen?

00:03:47--> 00:03:57

This event that happened 14 146 years ago, is the single most critical event in the history of mankind.

00:03:58--> 00:04:26

It is not the first time that this event happened because this event happened many, many times before that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down His revelation to all his ambia in different forms. To sum it came in the form of books, to some in it came in the form of a complete law, Sharia, like it came to moose Allah is Allah and which was followed by his Allah, his Salah, and to some it came in various forms that Allah Subhana Allah knows best.

00:04:28--> 00:04:39

But what was significant about this particular incident was that even though this incident was a repetition of something that had happened many times before, this was the final time that it was to happen.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

And then after that,

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

23 years later,

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

when that window in the heavens closed,

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

that window will never open again.

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

That window will never open again.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

And that is why when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam passed away

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

Abu Bakar and Omar Abdullah Han Hua.

00:05:03--> 00:05:07

One day went to meet the lady who was

00:05:09--> 00:05:15

one of the people who brought up Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. She was an African woman.

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

She was a black woman.

00:05:19--> 00:05:29

And she brought up the Miss Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and Allah khairan Omar Allah know when to call on her, they went to make Salaam to her. And when she met them, she wept.

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

And they said to her, they tried to console her. They said to her, you know, this is a tragedy we know.

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

But it is the hikma of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:42--> 00:05:48

we are all born to die and one day we all die. She said, I'm not crying for that reason.

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

She said, I know Muhammad is a human being Salallahu alaihe salam. He said, I'm not crying for that reason. He said, I'm crying because that window in the heavens closed forever.

00:06:01--> 00:06:05

She said I'm crying because jabril will never come again with revelation from Allah.

00:06:07--> 00:06:16

And crying again crying because the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala stopped. I am crying because there was a time when we used to ask questions and Allah would answer

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

and the time is over.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

So that is why I'm crying.

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

My brother and sisters, I'm mentioning this to myself and reminding myself when you because

00:06:28--> 00:06:35

the sense of the importance of the revelation of Allah. Somehow we seem to have lost it.

00:06:36--> 00:06:55

And of course even those of us who read the Quran Alhamdulillah it's not as if we don't read the Quran we read, we read the Quran. But for us, we read it because we like the sound of it. We read it because we know it is the holy book, we read it because we want to get we read it because we want to get a reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala and so on and so forth.

00:06:56--> 00:07:17

But how many of us read the Quran, with the understanding with that sense of glory and majesty to say that this is the word of my rub? This is the word of Allah. This is not the word of any man. No matter how wise, no matter how I learned,

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

it is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala is a reality.

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala is not a concept.

00:07:32--> 00:07:37

I was speaking once I was invited to speak at a function at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

00:07:38--> 00:07:47

And the subject was introduction to Islam. And when I finished my speech, a young lady got up in the back and she said, can you tell us what is the concept of God in Islam?

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

So I said to her, there is no concept of God in Islam.

00:07:52--> 00:07:59

So she was surprised everybody, how can you say that? How can you say no concept of God in Islam? I said, because in Islam, God is not a concept.

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

God is a reality. There's no concept of God that God is a reality Allah Allah, Allah exists. Allah subhana wa Taala lives, who will how you will consume. Allah subhanho wa Taala hears Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows. And he knows that which is hidden from us, even what is within our own hearts.

00:08:25--> 00:08:41

Islam is the name of reality. Islam is not a concept, it is not a philosophy, it is not a theory to be thought about and to be rejected. It is a reality. And like all reality, it does not depend on belief for its existence.

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

My brothers and sisters, I remind you that gravity is a reality.

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

And if you don't believe me, I suggest you stand up and try lifting both your feet up and you will discover gravity.

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

taxation is a reality.

00:08:58--> 00:09:08

And if I say I am an a taxi, just like an atheist, I do not believe in taxation, then I will discover state sponsorship.

00:09:09--> 00:09:16

And I do not suggest that as an alternative to unemployment. So much better idea to pay your taxes quietly.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

It's a reality. It's not a it's not a concept.

00:09:21--> 00:09:41

And therefore, I want to remind myself when you that the Quran begins by drawing attention to the world around us. And by inviting us to reflect, and as I've said many times before, to live is not simply to draw breath.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

To live is not simply to draw breath.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

To live is to live thoughtfully, is to live responsibly, with a sense of accountability to the one from whom nothing is hidden. Nothing is hidden of our intentions.

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

of our gestures of our words, and, and of our actions.

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

My brothers and sisters, we live in a world of intelligent people of intelligence and reason. And we are very proud of our own analytical thinking.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

And this thinking tells us

00:10:20--> 00:10:24

that the sine of something is the proof of the existence of that thing.

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

The footprint of a lion is the proof that a lion passed that way. And if we continue on that road, then we are likely to have an encounter of a rather permanent kind.

00:10:41--> 00:10:45

So what do we say when we see the signs of the Creator all around us?

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

That all this is an accident, that it just happened accidentally.

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

To quote from a wonderful article by one of the most serious of the Quran,

00:10:58--> 00:11:11

Muhammad Asad, the half is a whole lot. And the article is called scientific case for God. And those of you who are interested, email me, and I'll send you the article, read it. So very, very, very well written article.

00:11:12--> 00:11:55

And he says in that article, I quote, The precision in the mix of constants that were necessary preconditions for the universe to evolve, and for life to emerge, provide mathematical evidence in support of the god hypothesis. The odds of obtaining these constants, without putting intelligent design into the equation is one out of 10 million to the power of 124. To see how impossible that is, compare this number to the total amount of sub atomic particles in the whole universe, which has been calculated to be 10 to the power of 80.

00:11:56--> 00:12:21

Faced with such scientific evidence, Justice demands that we acknowledged the creator that these facts make clear the assertion that atheism is a faith based religion, with blind belief in nature as the deity to be evoked as an excuse for every cause, that cannot be empirically explained. In the age of science, God is fact.

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

read the whole article, the beautiful article.

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

So let us see what Allah subhana wa Taala created. And when you listen to me, I want you to ask the question, what's the question I want you to ask?

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

Why?

00:12:39--> 00:13:04

When I used to live in the US in 1998, I was searching for a location to set up a Outdoor Leadership Challenge training course. What is what is sometimes called Outward Bound training. So I was looking for a location A friend of mine took me up north into the forest of Massachusetts, one of the most beautiful places on earth, especially if you go in in the fall.

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

So highlights looks at it, you feel as if somebody is taken,

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

you know,

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

tins of cans of paint and just thrown it across the amazing, amazing, amazing coffee. I've never in my life seen so much color in one place. So this friend of mine took me and we walked under a magnificent stand of oak trees.

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

huge trees, straight up in the air, 200 feet, magnificent stand.

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

And under that standard of oak.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

The grant was almost completely bare.

00:13:44--> 00:13:52

No undergrowth whatsoever because of the heavy shade. But I noticed that all along the ground

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

was scattered. what looked like little green berries.

00:13:57--> 00:14:09

And I know what the fruit of the oak the acorn looks like. And those of you who have who don't know what an acorn looks like, I suggest you watch the film is H three and see what scat does with the acorn. Right? That's what the acorn is.

00:14:12--> 00:14:21

So but this was not these are not a cause these were little green berries or look like berries. So I picked one up and I was looking at it. And my friend says he says you know what that is? So I said no.

00:14:23--> 00:14:27

He said that. Berry is actually not a berry.

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

And I opened it and I realized it was a compacted mass of leaves. Just about that big.

00:14:34--> 00:14:40

And my friend explained to me and later on I went to share Google and he confirmed all that what my friend explained.

00:14:42--> 00:14:45

That is what happens when a Mitch

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

images like a little fly. Very small fly.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

A Mitch lays its egg on the terminal bud of the OIC 200 feet up in the air.

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

And when that happens, the terminal but the bar on which the leaf is laid, stops growing, and the leaves the vegetative buds around the terminal bud grow, and they cover the egg completely.

00:15:13--> 00:15:23

And it makes a compacted mass of new leaves. And it breaks off and falls down to the bottom where it's completely safe from the winds and the rain and the predators.

00:15:25--> 00:15:33

And the egg then hatches in the middle of food. This is like being born in a inside a bar of chocolates. Imagine a beautiful

00:15:35--> 00:15:46

and the Mitch Caterpillar is born in the inside of that mass of leaves in the middle of food. And he eats and he grows. And then eventually it bores its way out, and it flies out.

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

And when my friend explained this to me, I had tears in my eyes. He said Why are you crying? I said because this is my rub.

00:15:55--> 00:16:07

I said this is my Rob, I said it is easy to understand the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we are looking at the heavens and the skies of the sun and the moon, and the interest and this and that and the galaxies,

00:16:09--> 00:16:17

it is easy to understand the glory and magnificence of Allah when I go on my annual pilgrimage every year to Kruger National Park in South Africa.

00:16:19--> 00:16:34

To go and look at the elephants. And to look at the lions. You have to see the magnificence of the creation of Allah but swana truly the magnificence of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala is to see what Allah subhanaw taala does with the most insignificant of his beings.

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

What is a bitch? If a mich comes like this and you do that it's an x which is gone.

00:16:44--> 00:16:52

And that little image, Allah subhanaw taala makes a 200 foot oak trees subservient to that Mitch

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

when that Mitch lays an egg on the ark, the hokum goes to the to the ark to say look after this.

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

Look after this.

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

achieva

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

That's why I'm always amazed. How can a Muslim be afraid? How can someone who knows Allah be afraid?

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

If Allah takes care of a medieval it'll fly like that he will leave you alone.

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

He will not take care of you.

00:17:23--> 00:17:34

He will leave you to get to knock around in the world and to starve to death or whatever thing that you fear. Allah what a level shows the fact that we are completely disconnected with Allah.

00:17:36--> 00:17:50

Remember, just coming into a Masjid and praying and making salah and Sudan, Morocco and so on is not connected with Allah, we have to do this. We have to do this it is worth and this is a way of building the connection with Allah. But somehow the heart has to open. The heart has to open.

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

That is what Allah created.

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

I went back in my memory to a previous incarnation where I used to live in the middle of the Amazonian rainforest on the river Bobby's in Ghana.

00:18:05--> 00:18:26

And my pastime used to be every single weekend, Friday night to Monday morning I used to spend in the rain forest. A friend of mine, Peter Ramsey, and I we had a boat and we would take it and go up the river. 50 miles, 100 miles, and we would hunt and fish. And that's a long story. But the long and short of that story is that one of the things I discovered one day there was what I thought was a month

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

I saw this thing buzzing around flying up and down back and forth. And I thought to myself, this is the month

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

and his friend of mine was with me and our Indian guy called Leon Moreno who built the boat for me.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

Leon told me, that's not a math. He said Amanda, no math, there's a bird.

00:18:47--> 00:18:56

So I said what kind of bird? He said that's a hummingbird. All right, so I go back to Google. And what do I find? The Ruby throated Hummingbird.

00:18:58--> 00:18:58

Amazing creature.

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

The female is bigger than the male and the female weighs four and a half grams. A teaspoon of sugar is five grams. This thing is smaller than a teaspoon.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

The male

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

has in Canvas and red neck feathers, and that's why it's called the Ruby throated Hummingbird. The female is not as good looking as the male.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

Usual situation most cases anyway, that's a different matter.

00:19:29--> 00:19:53

Now this Ruby throated Hummingbird does an amazing thing. And that amazing thing is that every year this bird migrates from what is actually bird Heaven, which is the Amazonian rainforest. it migrates 2000 miles north, into North America, to the bank of the Mississippi River.

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

Part of that migration route is

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

Read Across the Gulf of Mexico, a distance of 600 miles.

00:20:05--> 00:20:16

What is the Gulf of Mexico the Gulf of Mexico recently became famous for the BP slogan which said we are bringing oil to the American shores. They didn't mean it that way. And that's not how it happened. But anyway

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

600 miles across the open ocean, this little bird

00:20:23--> 00:20:32

and they discovered that it takes 26 hours to do that nonstop flight remember this is not a water bird. If it lands in the water, it becomes fish food.

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

Now think about this. I always tell you don't listen to stories. Put yourself in that situation.

00:20:40--> 00:20:51

Many of you here are you like to pump iron right and you think you're very fit. Now you can do 600 miles in 26 hours, I will give you $64,000 per mile.

00:20:53--> 00:21:14

Right 600 miles in 26 hours on your own steam, no no vehicle on your own steam walk around, crawl, do what you want 600 miles in 26 hours if you can do that, I will give you $64,000 per mile. Do the numbers. Right? If you are an Indian that will take you like 10 seconds. If you're not in Indian, you will never do it for the rest of your life.

00:21:18--> 00:22:03

That little bird does that. What is the meaning of 26 hours Think about this. Put yourself in that position of that bird. It means that the bird takes off at sunrise and the sun is at its zenith mid noon. The bird is flying a little bird. It's not an albatross coasting on 12 foot wingspan. It's a little bird beating its wings at more than 1000 rpm. You can't even see the wings beating so fast. It's headed across the open ocean. The sun is at its zenith the bird is flying. The sun is setting the bird is flying. pitch dark night the bird is flying, does not lose energy does not lose direction does not lose does not get lost. The sun comes up the next morning the bird is flying two

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

hours into the new day the bird lands in the United States of America without a visa.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

That is what it means.

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

Think about that.

00:22:19--> 00:22:33

I thought to myself, This is what my Rob said. When he said our Lamoureux illa revoker home off to Beijing, ma UMC kohana.

00:22:35--> 00:22:48

In equally Shane bossy Allah subhanaw taala said don't do not do not see the birds flying in the air. Who is it except our rough man? Who is it except Allah who holds up that bird?

00:22:50--> 00:23:01

Who is it except Allah who even knows that there is this little bird flying through the night across the open ocean? And he knows it because he commanded that bird to do that.

00:23:02--> 00:23:20

He wrote it into its genes that it should do that. And it's not one Arnold Schwarzenegger of the rubies throated Hummingbird species does it? Every one of them does it. And they have been doing it from time immemorial. And they will do it till the day they have been decreed to do it.

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

Understand the glory of our rub. Who do we worship? We don't worship a concept. We worship Allah. We worship Allah who exists. We worship Allah who lives we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala who sees

00:23:43--> 00:24:01

yesterday I found a beautiful natgeo National Geographic, wild natgeo wild film on YouTube which I sent out to the group. And many of you must have seen it. amazing footage of the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti plains

00:24:02--> 00:24:06

and this footage is of a new barn will the beast calf

00:24:07--> 00:24:12

which is saved from hyenas by a Linus

00:24:14--> 00:24:18

and this is video this is this is the camera doesn't lie, right? video.

00:24:21--> 00:24:31

For a lioness, a new one will the beast calf is food. And there is actually a piece there where the lioness takes the whole head of this calf in its mouth and takes and and let's go

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

amazing amazing. Many of you would have seen that I send it out right most of you have. How many of you have seen it?

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

Amazing.

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

Like you know I am not amazed

00:24:44--> 00:24:48

because Allah subhanaw taala did this. And this is the Shan of our

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

what is the point in getting an elephant to take care of a wildebeest guff

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

the elephant doesn't need the elephant is not a predator of the wildebeest. Anyway

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

If you get a lion to take care of a wildebeest

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

that shows your power

00:25:07--> 00:25:16

that shows la da, da da da La la, that shows that there is no power to help or harm in anything other than Allah.

00:25:17--> 00:25:23

And if you read the Quran, you know Allah subhanho wa Taala told us this, about Musa alayhis salam.

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

Who did Allah subhanho wa Taala appoint to look after Musa the man who was searching for Musa deucalion

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

Rama sees the fourth the Pharaoh of Egypt.

00:25:37--> 00:25:44

Allah subhanaw taala did not take masala Salaam and hide him away somewhere. No, no, he took him into the palace of the king.

00:25:45--> 00:25:53

He decreed that the king actually holds Musa alayhis salam newborn baby like that in his in his arms.

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

As I always say,

00:25:57--> 00:26:13

all the rameses had to do to kill Moosa was to let him go, was to drop him. If he just dropped him Musa was dead. Allah is Allah. But he didn't, because rameses cannot drop and he cannot hold without the commands of Allah.

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

So why are we amazed? If a lioness looks after will the beast?

00:26:20--> 00:26:30

Allah subhanaw taala drew our attention to everyday miracles that we see. He asked us how many of us really reflect on the miracle of sleep?

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

How many of us reflect on the miracle of sleep?

00:26:36--> 00:26:43

How many of us reflect on the miracle that the body continues to function, even when we are completely dead to the world?

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

How many of us reflect on the rain I'm talking about reflection and talking about thinking?

00:26:52--> 00:26:58

How many of us reflect on the on the rain and on the earth and then on the mountain, the sun and the moon?

00:26:59--> 00:27:09

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this to us and he said, alumna jalila Raja Maha de Waal, Ji balota wirkkala Puna Kumar,

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

Laila Ali Baba,

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

Baba, Baba,

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

Baba Shiva,

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

see Raja Raja

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

Raja Ravi

00:27:43--> 00:28:23

surah, number Nevada, Allah subhanaw taala said, Have you not made the earth as a bed as a resting place and the mountains as pegs. ISO stacee of mountains which keep the tectonic plates anchored so that they do not create earthquakes. And we have created you in pairs. And we have made your sleep as a thing of rest, and have made the night as a covering through its darkness and amid the day for livelihood, and we built above you seven strong heavens and have made there in a shining lamp the sun and have sent down from the rain clouds abundant water that we may produce there with corn and vegetation and gardens of sick growth.

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

My brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us the glory and majesty of his column.

00:28:34--> 00:28:40

And Allah subhanaw taala told us what happens when this column is understood.

00:28:41--> 00:28:52

And I remind myself to ask myself and I request you to ask yourself, does this happen to us? Because Allah subhanaw taala said loions Allah Khurana Allah, Allah Allah

00:28:53--> 00:29:03

laroy Ohashi, Hashimoto, Satya hajia Mutasa dm in CATIA, Tila wattle columns

00:29:04--> 00:29:42

Salinas de la lomita garoun Allah subhanaw taala said if this column is sent down on to a mountain, what does it mean? Does it mean take the book and put it on a rock? sent down means what? sent down means if it is understood, is there hazhar or Elm if we understand the glory and magnificence of what we are reading, if we understand the glory and magnificence of the one who spoke this, if you understand the glory and magnificence of the fact that he spoke it to us that the new soul of the Kalam was on your heart and my heart

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

then what will happen? Allah said if it is sent down onto a mountain, the mountain will disintegrate and will come to dust with the glory and majesty of this crown with min Harsha de la with the

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

fear of Allah with the all and majesty of Allah.

00:30:04--> 00:30:09

But we are sitting with mountains in our hearts, mountains in our chest.

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

Nothing happens to them.

00:30:12--> 00:30:24

Nothing happens to them. What a pity. What a tragedy. What do we say to the ones who never heard the column of Allah? When we hear the column of Allah, nothing happens to us?

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

How do you blame somebody else who's never heard the column of Allah, what's he going to do?

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

A man came to him

00:30:32--> 00:30:38

and said, Yeah, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. He said, Tell us what does your job say?

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

And it was the way of the Tao of Allah Salam that he would recite the Quran.

00:30:45--> 00:31:00

The man said, What does your app say? And numbers Allah Salam said, is a sham Sukkot era. Ye then no, Jo mancha.ye elgiva Louie, way is Alicia, de la. Ye.

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

ye,

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

ye

00:31:08--> 00:31:12

ye, mo de todo la ba

00:31:13--> 00:31:23

caught a lot. The man put his hand on the mouth on Ibiza, Solomon, he said Yamaha must stop. And he stopped, just started weeping. And he wept and he wept.

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

Why did he weep? Because he understood what was happening. He understood what Nebuchadnezzar say.

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

Allah Sallam said, when the sun is wound up and loses its light, and when the stars shall fall, and when the mountains will become like a mirage, and they shall be made to pass away. And when the pregnancy camels will be neglected, and when the wild bees shall be gathered together, and when the seas will become a blazing fire, h2 or vision becomes what fire

00:31:59--> 00:32:23

when the hydrogen separates from the oxygen there is fire. It's an atomic nuclear reaction. And he said, when the seas will explode, and they will become blazing fire, and when those souls shall be joined with their bodies. And when the female infant, the girl child buried alive, will be questioned, and she will ask for what since she was killed.

00:32:27--> 00:32:40

The female child will be asked, Why were you killed? And the man put his hand on the mouth and he started weeping. He said, Yes, I did this. He said, I did this to my daughter.

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

He said, I did this to my little daughter,

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

Ella hi Lola.

00:32:51--> 00:33:04

And that is why Allah subhanaw taala after he introduced himself, after he introduced himself by means of a science in the world, which we can see. He then spoke of that which we cannot see.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

My brothers and sisters,

00:33:09--> 00:33:29

what we cannot see. And what we do not know would have really been meaningless and would have had no importance if it did not concern us. But it concerns us and it concerns us very seriously and sincerely. Because one day we will see it.

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

One day we will see it.

00:33:33--> 00:34:11

And Allah subhanaw taala described what we will see, why do we need a law to tell us what we will see. There is a body of knowledge that we can we have access to by means of our own efforts, by means of our own research, no matter how long it takes. Maybe it's something that we don't know today, maybe it's not part of the body of scientific knowledge that is known today doesn't matter. It is something that can become known presumably, maybe in the next 10,000 years, if we are if we are there for all of that, we do not need God. We do not need the revelation, we do not need a law.

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

But there is a body of knowledge which concerns us most deeply and most

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

intrinsically,

00:34:22--> 00:34:27

and that body of knowledge is what will happen after we die.

00:34:29--> 00:34:39

And my brother and sister my submission to you is that there is no one who can tell us what will happen after we die with certainty except the one who does not die.

00:34:41--> 00:34:50

The only one who can tell us with certainty. People can have theories. They can conjecture. They can philosophize, but all of that

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

is human thought. It's not certainty. It cannot possibly be the truth because the one possible

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

elating that theory dies and he does not come back.

00:35:06--> 00:35:15

The only one who can tell us with certainty what happens after we die is the one who does not die. I'll hire you. lezzy la Yarmuth.

00:35:17--> 00:35:39

Allah, Allah Allah. And what did he tell us? He said in the beautiful Ayat of Surah Al Hadith. Yo Mata meanie Amina that he has no home by nigh the Mojave Imani him, Bashara como yo

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

busara como Leah,

00:35:44--> 00:35:47

Jana de de, de de

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

de de NaVi

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

Lika, who follows Oh lousy.

00:35:59--> 00:36:07

Allah subhanaw taala said And may Allah make us all make all of us with our families, among those about whom desires have been revealed.

00:36:08--> 00:36:12

Allah said on that day you will see the believing men and believing women,

00:36:13--> 00:36:21

there light they will emanate light. Please notice Allah is not saying they will be in the light is it they will emanate light.

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

On that day, you will see the believing men and believing women, their light running forward before them and by their right hands.

00:36:35--> 00:36:51

And Allah says bush or Akuma Yo, good news for you glad tidings for you on this day. Jana taggi remain Tatiana Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell there in forever zelicah who will

00:36:52--> 00:36:56

truly that is the greatest success.

00:36:58--> 00:37:20

Islam teaches us that success is not measured by what happens to us in this world. Whatever happens to us, nobody in the whole world is ever a king of the whole world. Never happened in the history of mankind never will happen. But even if it happens, and even if it happens to you, you become the king of the whole world, every single thing that exists

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

one day

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

you will die

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

one day, that kingdom will be gone.

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

You will lose the kingdom.

00:37:34--> 00:38:14

So how can that be success? How can suck something which is transitory, how can something which is not permanent? How can something which is going to be taken away complete certainty. I cannot say with certainty that I will have control over something. But I can say with certainty that if I get that control, that one day I will lose that control. Reflect on this Think about this. Think about this. You cannot say with certainty that you will have something but you can say with complete certainty that if you do happen to have it one day,

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

one day it will go away.

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

You will not have it forever.

00:38:22--> 00:38:57

My brother and sisters the Quran Al Karim draws attention to the fact and that is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala after a few more is he said this allamani de la de la mano de sha Allah only the Quran karela wa salam in Allah. Allah Kono Kono calorie kita kaabil fapa la Mola de la casa kulu, maka zero min on via Zico.

00:38:59--> 00:39:20

Allah said, has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe to be affected by the remainder of the Quran and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become like those who received the scripture before them and neglected and so the term was prolonged for them and their hearts were hardened and many of them became rebellious.

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

My brothers and sisters

00:39:25--> 00:39:42

the Quran draws our attention to the fact that we are living in this world and we are like a bunch of people who are sitting in a cinema theater, watching a 3d movie. Those of you who will be in a cinema theater watching a 3d movie, you will understand what that means.

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

And at that time, if there is somebody sitting on the seat next to you, when he shakes you and he tries to wake you up from your from from from what you are engrossed in completely. And he says to you remember, this movie will end and we are

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

To go out on the street after this

00:40:04--> 00:40:10

what is our reaction? Our reaction is to give the man one backhand across his stupid face.

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

And tell him Leave me alone.

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

You have no sense. You have no sense.

00:40:18--> 00:40:33

I am enjoying this movie, this beautiful, beautiful movie. I'm engrossed in this I'm a completely endorse to this. When there is a tragedy and being enacted I am weeping, although I know cognitively in my head that that is an actor who is acting, it is not real.

00:40:34--> 00:41:01

When there is when there is something funny happening, my blood pressure's going up and down, my electrical impulses in my brain are playing havoc, there is physiological change in my body, in my emotions in my feelings based on something which I know cognitively, intelligently, as an educated, logical human being that that does not exist.

00:41:05--> 00:41:06

Yes or no.

00:41:08--> 00:41:17

And what do we do with somebody who wakes us up at that point in time and says hello, wake up? Wake up? We got to go out of here in one hour. We got to go out of here in 45 minutes.

00:41:18--> 00:41:22

What do you do with a guy you do like the person? No, no, we hate them.

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

We hate them. We dislike them. We chase them out. If we could harm them, you have them you can kill them or kill them. Yeah.

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

And that's exactly what was done to all the ambia Allah musallam Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:41:38--> 00:41:52

Every Nabhi of Allah, every messenger and prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala was resisted. And he was opposed. And where they could kill him. They killed him where they could not kill him. It was not because they didn't try.

00:41:55--> 00:42:05

Every single Avi and what did they come to do? They only came to open our eyes. They only came to open our eyes to the fact that one day

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

whether we like it or not,

00:42:09--> 00:42:13

the curtain will part and we will see molecule mouse.

00:42:15--> 00:42:20

We will see molecule mouse as I told you, reality is not dependent on belief.

00:42:22--> 00:42:27

It will happen. If you believe it, it will happen. If you don't believe it, it will still happen.

00:42:29--> 00:42:35

And that's why Allah said Kalia tava faco molekule Mattila de vous Killa Pico sumaila, Rob de como todo

00:42:37--> 00:42:43

and he said malaco mouth has been set upon you and He will take your souls and you will return to Europe.

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

That is his job.

00:42:46--> 00:42:49

And the malayaka have no

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

they have no

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

ability to disobey Allah

00:42:58--> 00:43:03

monokuma cannot come and say you know let him live for a little while longer in rice. Yep, no. doesn't work like that.

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

When the time comes, as we say when you got to go, you got to go Yeah.

00:43:10--> 00:43:17

I remind myself when you my brother sisters, let us remember this. The day will come when the curtain will part.

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

And then

00:43:21--> 00:43:32

ask Allah to make that day the best day of our lives and to make the last of our actions the best of our actions. So that the day when we meet our rock will be a day we look forward to meet the one we love.

00:43:33--> 00:43:39

And the one who inshallah will love to meet us inshallah. I want to end my football today by giving you a gift.

00:43:40--> 00:43:44

And this gift is the law of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:43:45--> 00:43:48

He used to make this law when he used to go to the masjid.

00:43:51--> 00:43:55

And when you get the text of this, it's all there in that. memorize those words a beautiful beautiful
