Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Ashraf al ambia evil mousseline. While Allah He was happy as mine.
On my bad.
My dear brothers and sisters, we listen to a series of buzz in the last few weeks on what is our brand.
And therefore, I thought it's a good idea to culminate it with a
absolute foundation of it,
which is what is Islam.
It's very important to understand what Islam is because we claim to follow Islam.
And therefore, it's very important for us to understand what it is that we are following
14 147 years ago, a window opened in the heavens. I'm talking about the historical fact. I'm not talking about philosophy or mythology.
14 147 years ago, a window opened in the heavens, and God spoke to men.
In the words of
the wonderful YouTube video, where she said a wonderful thing. She's written a book on the Syrah Solomon the biography of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
And she said that when Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
God received the first message,
he didn't come off the mountain on the wings of angels.
He didn't float in the air and come to the earth.
He didn't come singing hallelujah or something. He didn't come with a halo around his head. He came like an ordinary human being frightened and afraid, because he had experienced something which no human being had experienced before that the meeting of two life forms the meeting of a life form of light of nor the Moloch
the Emir of the melodica, Jeeva, Illallah, his solemn with a human being. And he experienced that meeting like any human being, and he came off the mountain frightened. And he came to his wife and he said, Sammy Luna is a Maloney, he's a cover me cover me. And he explained what had happened to him and he was frightened, and he said that this is the proof that what he experienced was true.
I want you to understand one thing very clearly, which I have mentioned many times before, Islam has no mythology in it. Islam has no conjecture and philosophy in it. Islam is not an ideology or a philosophy. Islam is a reality.
Islam is history, recorded history.
And 14 147 years ago is when it began in this form. Now this opening of the window in the heavens,
where Allah subhanaw taala spoke through His Messenger jabril alayhis salam to his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This opening of a window in the heavens when God spoke to man was not the first time it had happened.
But it was to be the last time that it would happen.
Allah subhanaw taala revealed the first of his column of his message which was to be spread over the next 23 years.
And then I at was a Koran, base mayor of beacon Levy, Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala said read,
in the name of the one who created everything.
That message began with drawing attention to his creation. It began with the word read.
Read the message of the glory and majesty and magnificence of your rub, in what he created
in the master when the minute in the exceptional and the mundane
in the unique and the multitude read and recognize the reality behind the message.
In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala
the Creator Himself
define this ability to recognize the reality behind the sun
As the single most important sign of intelligence,
not some IQ or EQ test, but the ability to recognize the reality behind the science,
not get lost in the signs
and deny the reality behind those signs.
If someone sees the footprints of a lion and says the lion does not exist, then he has to wait for a few minutes to discover if the lion exists or not.
But that is not the sign of an intelligent person. It's not even a sign of somebody who has a reasonably long lifespan.
Because there is only one result when a lion finds you unless of course a lion looks at you and say I don't eat junk food.
So what did Allah subhanaw taala say about the sign of intelligence in Surah 11 in the ayah, which you have heard me recite a million times. Allah subhanaw taala said ours will remain
the same. This will
Rahman r Rahim in
de la ville a Li one.
Allah subhanaw taala mention, he said
very early in the creation of the heavens and the earth.
And in the alternation of the night and the day, there are indeed signs for people of understanding al Al Bab. People have intelligence
and and then Allah subhanaw taala described Who are the people of intelligence. Remember, this is not my description.
This is the description of the one who created the people and who created intelligence itself.
And what does he say?
He says Who are these people? I levena. He said they are those who Corona la hoppy amo de la la Genova him who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who mentioned Allah subhanho wa Taala, standing, sitting and lying down.
The beauty of the buyer of the Kalam of Allah Allah Allah.
This example of the ban of the Quran you see all through the Quran. In one or two words Allah subhanho wa Taala encapsulates every aspect of our life. keyamo Allah, you know him standing, sitting and lying down, there is no fourth position.
Someone who recognizes Allah subhanaw taala someone who remembers Allah subhanaw taala, standing, sitting and lying down.
And then Allah subhanaw taala used another word, he used the preposition and wow,
People love intelligence are those who recognize their rub and who reflect.
Health is someone
who reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth. This separation between religion and scientific education that we find today is manmade, it is created by us. This is the ultimate level of stupidity. This is not in the column of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is no conflict in Islam, between science and theology. Because Science is a manifestation of theology.
Science is the signs of the Creator, how can there possibly be a conflict between the sign and the reality behind that sign? How can there be a conflict between the footprints between the Pathmark of a lion and the lion itself?
This is madness.
This is created by us a very stupid We must get rid of this. The Quran teaches us both
the relationship and the sequence of learning.
Allah subhanaw taala said Who are the people of intelligence, those of you who understand Arabic you know that if this ayah had been written the other way around, instead of saying Allah the Quran Allah,
Allah, if Allah Subhana, Allah says Allah,
if Allah subhanaw taala had changed the order of the terms, nothing there would not be grammatically in Arabic, there will be no problem.
The IR could have still been written in that way, except one thing, which is that the meaning would be different, that the sequence of learning would have changed.
The reason for atheism is because the sequence of learning is changed.
atheism happens because the learning sequence has changed before recognizing the Creator. When we when we delve into the creation, we cannot understand the creation.
We cannot understand the creation. It confuses us.
And all our intelligence and all our reasoning and all our reckoning
hits us against a stone wall. And that stone wall is the question Why? Why did this happen? And there is no answer. And as I've explained to you before, we try to answer the question, why
with the word how we give the same answer to the why as we would give to the how
and that is stupidity. That's also a sign of complete intellectual helplessness, intellectual bankruptcy, the unwillingness the integrity to recognize reality.
But believe me, reality does not change because we don't want to recognize it. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala created this sequence first recognize your rubbish then look at the creation and everything will make sense everything will make sense and that's why is it yet for Corona vehicles is somehow the world
and what is the result of that? Rob bernama Bahasa Botha Allah
Allah you have not created this in vain. This creation is not an accident, accidents break things they don't make things. If your car is not working, go have an accident it will become alright. If your head is aching walk into a wall it will become okay.
Then I was it's sensible to say this world is an accident
from Panama Canal,
de la or LA or Rob, this creation is not an accident, you didn't create it in vain. You just didn't create it to trash it
subhanak All Glory to you
and save us from the hellfire.
My brothers and sisters recognize this dean of ours
recognizes dean of ours, Allah subhanaw taala created this universe.
And within it, he said some fundamental laws, very precise fundamental laws and very precise constants
which guide and run it there is a very precise calculation to the angle of the earth on its axis.
It's not a 90 degrees, it's not 180 degrees, the very, very the very there is a very specific angle at which the earth is on its axis, there is a very specific speed by which it rotates and so on and so on. Very, very precise.
Find me an accident which is precise.
very precise. There are very precise fundamental laws. And there are very precise constants. For example, one fundamental law which we are all very familiar with, is the law of gravity.
Gravity is the magnetic force, which pulls everything in the atmosphere of the Earth towards the earth towards the center of the earth.
And thank God for gravity because if gravity wasn't there, you and I would be orbiting the earth because we would be thrown off by another fundamental law, called centrifugal force.
You will not be able to sit here.
And if that gravity of the strength of that gravity was more than it is, then we would not be able to move, we would not be able to fly, we will not even be able to work, let alone fly.
Because the huge force with which gravity would pull us to the Earth would anchor our feet on the surface of the earth.
Allah subhanaw taala created gravity, and he decreed
he decreed the specific strength of gravity.
The extreme example of gravity is
the black hole, where the gravitational force is so strong,
that even light cannot escape.
And this is the reason gravity is the reason behind the acceleration of any object that is falling falling towards the earth. And what is that x, what is the weight of the acceleration 9.8 meters per second square 32 feet per second, in square 32 feet per second per second.
acceleration due to gravity is a constant. What does that mean? It means that if a hammer and a feather are dropped from a height
in a vacuum,
they will both reach the bottom at the same time.
At the same time, but if you take the hammer on a feather to the top of this building and drop, the hammer reaches the earth much faster than the feather Why? Because of another fundamental law and that is a drag. And drag acts on the surface on the surface area, and therefore the federal flows to Earth whereas the hammer comes down to the bank.
But if you take the hammer on the feather, and they actually did an experiment on the moon, to prove this, if you take the hammer and the feather and drop them in a vacuum, they will both fall with exactly the same speed. And they will both reach the these the bottom exactly at the same time.
However, I'm not standing here to teach physics.
I strongly recommend that you watch lessons of physics lectures on physics by a wonderful, wonderful teacher and MIT a guy called Walter Lewin
go and Google Waterloo in Waterloo and has more than 2 million viewers per day.
Watch his lectures and watch his lectures in physics. Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. So Google, Waterloo, and it's all there on YouTube.
I am saying all of this to understand only one to explain only one single fact. And that fact is
that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created this entire universe, of which our Earth is a miniscule particle.
And he is the one who created the fundamental laws that govern whatever happens on this earth. And whatever happens in the entire universe, that of which we know and that of which we don't know.
why must we know fundamental laws?
And the answer is, we need not know fundamental laws, except except when we are going to go into an area where a fundamental law operates. And then we need to know that fundamental law.
For example, do you need to know the laws of aerodynamics which are fundamental laws? No, except when you want to fly a plane.
If you want to fly a plane, then you better learn the laws of aerodynamics, otherwise, you will crash.
And that also is a fundamental law,
that those who refuse to follow fundamental laws will crush
that also the fundamental law.
My brothers and sisters,
for centuries, humanity has spent time
in conjecture, in philosophy, in fantasy in intellectualization. wondering about one reality, which nobody in the world denies. And what is the reality, death,
People deny everything including the Creator, but nobody denies death.
There are people who say after we die, nothing
will happen. There are people who say after we die, we get reincarnated in one form or another depending on the kind of life we lived. There are people who say, after we die, we go to heaven or hell.
Bottom line question to ask is, how do you know?
Because no one came and told us, no one came back to tell us. So how do you know?
especially those who say, by definition, those who say after we die, we become dust, nothing will happen by definition, they just wiped out their own proof.
They just wiped out their own proof by their own statement. Because if you become Dustin, obviously, nothing can come back and tell you so how do you know?
Something is wrong with our brains? The
question is, how do we know?
And that is where we come to another part. And that part is, just as Allah subhanaw taala created fundamental laws in this world. He created fundamental laws in that part of his creation, which we in Islam call allied,
Allied, the unperceivable, not the unseen, as it is usually translated, the unperceivable something which can never be perceived, no matter what
fundamental laws of this creation, we know. And we can discover, conjecture, really, we can say that what we don't know today, we will come to know, a century down the road, maybe 10,000 years down the road, Allah knows how long he wants to keep this world here.
But yes, logically speaking, one day we will come to know.
But there is one fundamental law that we can never know and that is, what happens after we die.
And mankind understands this, every single person on the face of the planet, if he has got a functioning brain recognizes this.
And that is why reams and reams and reams have been written about what people think will happen, including that nothing will happen.
If nothing will happen. The Why do you write about it? Why you bother? Nothing will happen.
What you don't know that nothing will happen.
And that's why you're bothered.
But as I said, What's the question to ask? How do you know?
How do you know now, therefore,
how can we know what will happen after we die?
Only one way
if you listen to the one who does not die,
how can we know what will happen after we die? Only one way
whether you like it or not. Whether you like it or not.
How do you know what will happen after you die? If you listen to the one who does not die? Liu li li Mu jelajah Lalu Amana valo, fattier is sama to a lot. Holly Koh sama to a lot of Buddha Allah me, Robbie sama wati wa.
Maliki Yomi. Dean.
He is the one who can tell us he's the only one who can tell us. So let us see what he said.
Let us see what he said.
I'm not going to translate in detail because again, Jamal, lack of time, so look up the translations. But I will give you just
Allah subhanaw taala mentioned
in the first surah of the 30 year Jews, so Otto Nava,
Allah began describing what happened in the world and what continues to happen, which I mentioned, which is argument and debate and conjecture, and philosophy, and intellectualization. What will happen after death?
And he said jelajah Lalo.
He said, what are they arguing about? Are they arguing about that great event?
The event of resurrection the event when we will meet our Creator? Whether or not we like it, whether or not we believe in him whether or not we accept it, we will meet him.
So Allah says, what are they arguing about? Are they arguing about that? And this is a rhetorical question because Allah subhanaw taala knows what they're arguing about. He knows even before the argument came into their minds,
it's a rhetorical question to draw our attention to the time that we spend in trying to discover something which is undiscoverable.
Instead of reading about it, and listening to the one who told us in cases
and Allah said they will find out. He said truly one day they will find out.
He said I will say
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
And then Allah subhanaw taala describe for us that which we can see,
out of that which we can see, he also mentioned some things, which at the time of this revolution were unknown,
but which today we know
Allah subhanaw taala do not see the earth as we have spread it, do they not see the mountains that we have placed on this earth as pegs
like 10 pegs. Today, when the I it was revealed the ISO stacee of mountains the geological phenomena by which the mountains anchor the tectonic plates was unknown. But today we know this phenomenon, we know that mountains have roots which are much longer than the height of the mountain.
And that these mountains balance the earth. Without the mountains balancing the earth the Earth would be in a permanent state state of earthquakes.
Analysts via said we have created the night forest and the day for people to earn their living, he said we have created sleep as the one who cannot sleep the value of sleeping
and Allah subhanaw taala. Sir, we have created your myths.
And Allah subhanaw taala then said that he mentioned the precipitation cycle and he said that we have created rain.
And he said we have created rain, which helps you to grow your crops, which results in three growth.
And he said, Allah Jalla
wa Ala Moana komazawa
the sun, not an object of worship, not something you're descended from sooryavanshi or Chandra Vinci, and the object of creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which tells you that the Creator is far superior to that a star which has no significance in terms of the universe. We don't worship the sun. We don't worship the moon. We don't worship created stuff. We worship Allah subhanaw taala, who created all of them
Why did he explain all of this to us, because he wants us to see the signs, because he is now going to tell us something which is in the realm of the unperceivable something which we will go through, but which we today have no means of knowing and which we can never, ever have a means of knowing none of our science and technology will take us beyond the barrier of life and death.
And he described that scene. And he said a day will come when you will be called forth when the soul will be blown.
And you will come out of your graves and don't imagine that if you don't have a grave you don't come out. Even if you get atomized if you are in the center of an atomic explosion, and you get atomized The one who created you when you did not even exist. For him it is very easy to create you out of the atoms that you have dispersed into.
So don't imagine that if you fall into the sea and you become fish food
that you cannot be recreated is acted.
The girls is a manner of speaking
and he said you will come forth in your from your girls in armies.
You will be called on to a place of gathering
He said there will be doors in the skies which will open through which you will be removed from this land of being Michio Kaku, one of the students of Albert Einstein wrote about the great crunch, he said when the great crunch happens, there is only one way that mankind will have to escape Total Annihilation, and that is by going out of this dimension. And he said if they can break open and if they can create a door by which they can leave this state of time and space by this dimension, then they can escape total annihilation.
And the one who created Michio Kaku and Albert Einstein and the parents and the grandparents
all the way to Adam alayhis salam, if you believe in creation and all the way to the first monkey, if you believe in, in Darwin
right, your choice believe what you want.
I know my grandfather was a monkey.
What did he say? He said doors will open in the heavens. I'm not trying to prove the Quran by science that is a very stupid thing to do.
You cannot prove a higher form of knowledge by a lower form of knowledge logically, you can do the opposite. You can prove a lower form of knowledge by a higher form knowledge but you cannot do the opposite. I'm not doing that. I'm just explaining to you what Allah subhanaw taala said.
So Allah said doors will open
beauty of the
they are the symbol of massiveness. They are the symbol of establishment, they are the symbol of power and weight and force and they are completely fun. And he said the same mountains, you will see them floating like clouds.
They will have no significance. They will have no weight was weird.
And then what will happen? The jahannam will be brought close. How do you know there is jahannam because the one who created it told us it is there. How do you know there is gender? Because the one who created us told us it is there.
In America, not Masada
la dee da dee, da ba ba,
no recompense, long time to spend they're very, very hard place. Nothing cool. Nothing nice to drink, nothing nice to eat a place of torment and punishment
For the one who denied all of this, for the one who was born and he breathed the air that Allah created and denied Allah, He drank the water that Allah created and he did it died Allah, he took the benefit of his parents and he denied Allah. He took the benefit of intelligence which Allah gave him and he denied Allah who took the benefit of the risk than the sustenance that Allah subhanaw taala provided and denied Allah, who spent his time and energy in perpetuating corruption on the face of the earth, who spent his time and energy breaking the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala who spent his time and energy trying to harm Allah and trying to harm the Messenger of Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala says, For him, this is just Recompense.
This is justice
this this and nothing
will increase except punishment.
And then what about the ones who did not do all of this? What about the intelligent ones? who recognize their Creator from his science? And then who bow to that creator alone? Who did not confused themselves? And who did not worship created things, they worship the Creator.
How do you explain somebody who calls himself intelligent, but who boughs to something which is created the Hara what Allah?
What about them?
this is the reward for them for their ability to describe the the beauty and joys of gender. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant all of us January 7 shala.
He described all of this and he said this is from their rub. This is from their Rob.
And who is that Rob?
The eyes of the glory and majesty of Myra
I've always told you people reflect on the Quran, reflect on the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala.
Allah Buddha said
he did not say that
Rama The one who has mercy has no boundaries.
The one whose Mercy is always at the
end there's no boundaries.
On which day on the day when you will all be gathered. yo maya como ro, ma la de kado Safa. We will all be gathered on a day when you and I will see what I have recited here insha Allah.
Allah to Allah Rama Rama Rama de la yum Jamelia una mean okitama Yama, po mo Alma de kado, Safa jabril, la salam, and Malaika the millions and billions and zillions of them, the number of which only Allah knows, will be standing row upon row upon row upon row of angels.
And Allah knows what the form of those angels is.
Allah knows what the form of the angels is, we do not conjecture and we do not philosophize that the angel looks like this or that we don't know this.
Allah knows what it is his backlog,
and Allah subhanho wa Taala will be on his throne.
And we will all be gathered and driven to the place of gathering like shepherds drive the flock.
There will be two angels to every person they will drive in there. And they will all gather there. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make as they make that gathering the best gathering of our lives. We ask Allah to gather us under the shade of his ash.
And there is place for everybody Believe me. This earth is like a grain of sand on a beach. The Arusha Allah subhanho wa Taala has no description.
There is place for everybody. We ask Allah to gather all of us and all those who have gone before and all those who are to come under the shade of exertion that day and save us from the fear of that day. On the whole and the washout of the day.
too soft, and nobody will speak to like step by his permission.
de la la hora.
And when they speak, they will tell him the good things
Verily this day is the day of truth. This day will happen, whether we like it or not, whether we believe it or not immaterial want to believe believe don't want to believe don't believe makes no difference to the reality.
Just because you don't believe in gravity does not mean that if you jump off this building, you will start flying upwards you won't
the one who believes the one who is interested, let him start making some plans for that day. Let him start making a way to his rub.
My brothers just ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from what is to come, the last I have this surah I have such despair. The I have such despair. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from that.
And Allah subhanaw taala said, And on that day, those who continue to deny and who died in that state of denial, when they are resurrected on that day. And when they see the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala before them, when they see it close, they will not even ask for forgiveness. Their despair will be such that they will not even ask for forgiveness. They will say yeah, late and he couldn't Rob, they will say if only I was just If only I did not exist, if only I was never born. And that is why I always say this phrase, the saddest phrase, the saddest two words in any language are if only because if only means Yeah, late any, if only means the time to make a change is gone.
There's no if only when there is time to change, we reserve the right to do something to it. We have time as long as we are breathing, we have time. Let us do it. Let us take the steps. Because the time will come.
A time will come when this window will shut.
And nobody can stop it from shutting. And nobody can stop us from going into that world believe me, take my word for it. Until the time comes, it won't happen. And when the time comes, it cannot be stopped.
And then ask Allah subhanaw taala to save all of us who are here. And all of those who are related to those who are here. And all of those we're not related to those who are here, all of humankind from this one.
From the meaning of this one I from this level of despair, where the person will say I wish I was dust. I wish I was dust. If only I was dust, then I would not have to face this punishment which I'm seeing here.
