Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala sherfield mb or even more serene Muhammad Rasool Allah is among our highly he write early he was he was seldom doesn't even consider on cathedra from my brother, my brothers and sisters.
Let me talk to us a little bit about some of the
great miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, some of them physical in the in space, some of them in terms of humanity.
Of course the greatest of those miracles is the Quran Allah Karim which is which remains with us to this day and which will remain in this world until the end of the world in sha Allah. And this is a miracle, this is a gift that was given to Allah given by Allah subhanaw taala tourists of Elijah Salem and which we got,
because we are a Zuma and by in this particular case, when I say we I do not mean only the Muslims, but the but all of humanity because all of humanity are the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
We are the people of the Rasul Allah a saran any Rasul has all the people to whom that that rasool Allah be was sent are his people
Rasul Allah is our solemn was sent to all of mankind
right? Yeah, you're not in need Rasul Allah He alikoum Jimmy and I've never
given these words and he said this, that oh people I am the Rasul the Messenger of Allah to you all together.
That OMA is divided into two parts.
Uma, uma Dawa, Amato Dawa and Amato ejabberd the Ummah who, to whom the Dawa is given the OMA to whom
the message is conveyed and the OMA who accepts that message right on metal ejabberd Matsudaira Inomata Yabba
Amato Dawa is the OMA to whom the message is sent. And that is everybody and out of them. The Amato ejabberd is that part of the Ummah who
accepted or accepts that
right the people who
accept that though this is the
this is the
the difference between the two parts of the Ummah but we are all Duma for Sol Sol Sol
Sol Sol Sol Sol. The message came the Quran came for the Ummah meaning everyone, some accepted it, some did not accept it, but it still belongs to them, it still belongs to those who did not accept it, even though they did not accept it. And it is the job is the job of the of those who accepted it, to convey it to those who have not accepted. So this is the overall background pictures. Now when we look at the miracle, the resource asylum as I said, the Quran, Allah Kareem is
the biggest of them, and it still remains with us.
Another big miracle is the splitting of the moon, the so called karma Allah subhanaw taala mentioned it in the in the Quran itself. And this is also part of our belief part of our Aqeedah that we believe it happened. We don't know how Allah subhanaw taala does his things. But this is something which is which happened. It's very significant, not just because the moon spread, but because the sun and the moon have a great significance for human beings in terms of their beliefs, and their religious beliefs and their superstitions and so on. There are many people in India that are
the Rajputs who are Hindus, some of them they're wrong, they're among the royal family, some of them are sooryavanshi, and some of them are Chandra venchi. They say we are descended from the sun and we are descended from the moon. Again, these are obviously when nobody can be descended from an inanimate
celestial object, right? But this is what people believe. And so it's a very significant thing. People worship the sun and the moon. In in yoga, there's something called surya namaskar which is done at the time of the rising sun. This is also one of the reasons why among the times when Salah and Sadat is prohibited, is the exact time or that small, not exact, but the short period of time when the sun is actually rising. And when the sun is setting and it is not big
As we worship the salary we know no matter what type we do so, such that we do so that almost ran out or not to the sun, but so that we do not even give an impression that maybe we are doing this. So to remove even the impression we don't we have been told to not make sudo at this time when the sun is,
is in the rising situation and when the sun is setting, so when this is between the time the time for some of them further finishes, and the time for a sharp sharp begins, that's the beginning and at the time of just before the time of mercury is, is the time of when Salah is private. This, this unique miracle of the splitting of the of the moon is established, as I mentioned,
in the Quran, as well as in the authentic SAR these of Bukhari and Muslim. It happened between the Hijra to Abyssinia and the acceptance of Islam by Omar Abdel Fattah de la. But this is where this is where we have to understand it as people are very miracle driven. They think they have miracles will will solve everything. They think well why don't we have some miracle? The key thing to understand the biggest miracle is yourself, you are you yourself are a great miracle. from our own perspective, from our understanding that Allah subhanaw taala created, created somebody like us, right? If you look at medical, if you look at it, it's a it's an amazing thing. It's a miracle that you are born,
it's a miracle that you still remain alive. If we look at the simply one simple, simple thing if you look at the number of pathogens that exist,
in the atmosphere, in water and food and so on, this is from the Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah has given us eyesight, which sees things very selectively, like we do not see everything. If you saw, for example, if you pick up the most delicious thing about thinking or think about the most delicious thing by the best food in the world, which will love you and anything else right you're willing to die for it and kill for it. Just pick up a morsel of that food and if Allah subhanaw taala granted you the sight to see the number of bacteria and viruses and, and potential pathogens of that food you would throw it and you would run like hell. Right? You would never put that thing
into your mouth.
If we just look at your skin and see a whole world which exists on your skin, a whole world which exists on our lips, on our in our in our eyes, on our tongues, the whole world because these are these are living beings who are living on us. If you look at that, you will have nightmares.
Right? Allah subhanaw taala did not give us all that in the Imagine in all of this.
You and I are still alive and we are well. And we are healthy and we are you know we live our lives.
Very normally and very happily. This itself is an amazing miracle.
Provided we see the holder of Allah subhanaw taala in that miracle, this is the key thing. The key thing is the
the sight of Abraham
the side where you look at something and take a lesson from it. And the lesson that we take from this is
Allahu Akbar Alamy
rhombi Allah, my Ramiz Allah. So this miracle happened where also as a result of the
the challenging and they said, you know, the split the wound if you're the if you're your God, and if you're Rob is true. And Allah Allah granted him that and as soon as salam was ordered to make any SHA two, to make a sign like that to the moon and the moon split, and they said that they could see the mountains of the hammer between the two parts of the moon, and after that the moon came back together
But what happened? Did all these people who are to who who challenged him to do the to make them to do this miracle? Did they accept Islam? No.
They used a pseudo Salama magic.
They accused him of magic.
Remember, all miracles are the holders of Allah subhanaw taala.
Just like Mussolini, Sarah was ordered to strike the water and the water split and the water stood like two walls and between those two walls, the ground on wisdom the people are Musa walked this gun was dry ground. It was not full of slush and mud and everything else and you know they have difficulty walking no it was dragged on.
But how many times did what a split when Musa Islam struck water one time when Allah subhanaw taala ordered it
Returning to the moon split, when results are seldom made a signal. I don't know if you made a signal ever again. But my point is that please understand this.
we ascribe the miracle to the one who did it and that is Allah subhanho.
Allah does it through, not because he needs to do it through but He does it through his NaVi is also
in order to reinforce and honor the exalted position of the Rasul but the miracle does not belong to those who it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala.
That is why when ceremonially Salam, again is
a number we have these if when celebrity Salam saw that on a big piece, which was brought to him in a way that we don't understand to this day,
by one of his courtiers who didn't even go anywhere he is used, Jesus said, where is that and he said what he had to say. And this throne came 1000 miles to Palestine, from the kingdom of Sabah,
which was in Yemen.
And it was
inside the fork of the Queen, it was in a highly secure place. And physically, it moved from there to Palestine was remodeled Islam was
in a split second.
You because the man said to look there, look here and the throne is there.
Before the before his eye could blink,
and so on. And his reaction is the teaching for us. Of what do we do when we see a miracle of Allah subhanaw taala. He said first, he said two things. First, he said add them in for the rugby. He said this is the father. This is the blessing of my Rob. He did not say this is the miracle of this man. So he will Kurama know, he said has been funded.
And then he said Leah will lose money, saw that Allah subhanaw taala can test me to see whether I'm thankful and I'm not thankful.
So in this case, these people that demanded the miracle when it came, they refused it and they said this is
this is magic.
An interesting side note is that this miracle was also seen in India, in Kerala in a place called Katanga law, which is near Kochi
by the king of the place,
who was the king of the world a Che Guevara Parramatta dynasty and his name was Chairman Verma.
He also and those people also saw the splitting of the wound because he will see if you see the different time difference between Arabia and India.
This happened at a time when people in the altar site it is also reported that this was seen in China. And they have written this as a reference point in the it's called the year in which the moon was split.
But zeren Farewell story is very interesting. So this king saw this now,
a year or two later, some Arabs and these were the Sahaba versus salah.
To a few years later, they landed they came to this to trade between India and in Arabia. So they came in our ship and they landed in Katanga load.
And the king summoned them.
So when they meet when they went to meet the king, the king said, Look, this is what we saw here, years ago. Do you know anything about this? And they said yes, this is the miracle that was done by our Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam. When journal Parowan saw this miracle he called his
his Jyotish is he called his astrologist and his priests. This was invoking, so he called them and he has a lot going on. So they said that there is he said, these are the this is done from the land of sand and dead pumps.
They call this other color, they refer to Arabia.
And they said a prophet has come there, and he did it. Now when Geralyn bermel called the Sahaba who came who came who we met. They said the same thing they said this is done by our Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem. So journal Bhairava then decided to go and meet Ross overnighters.
So he accepted Islam at the hands of the Sahaba he gave them a place to build a masjid
And then Masjid exists to this day and I have prayed in that mercy that is in Coronado.
And when they built the masjid, they needed light, they need a lamp. And so they gave them the local people, they gave them a lamp from the temple, it's a brass lamp and the lamp also exists
in the same Masjid to give them a brass oil lamp, which was used to illuminate the muscle.
So the Sava stayed there the married local women, and eventually they died there and they are buried there.
Next to the budget, the chairman Chairman piramal then went to meet as well as ourselves.
Now, I do not know and it would be interesting if somebody does some
some research in this
in this area
in which we will be able to see, you know, whether there's a report of any people from India, meeting resources, but he but he went from India, he went to Oman, that was the route 80 that used to take, and from one event to to the city went to Medina.
And then he returned, and on the way in a place called Salalah. In Oman, he died. Now, I'm not sure whether he died on the way there or the way back, but I did say that was way back. And his cover is in Salalah and I have been to his grave also I went to see that gave a grave as well in which is in Salalah in Oman. So the one who may have the love of Allah medulla, the one who Allah subhanaw taala wants to guide nobody can misguide Jelena and Burma, Raha to Lally was one of them. And Allah subhanaw taala chose to guide him. And remember Allah subhanho wa Taala guides anyone who wants to be guided, Allah is not doesn't play favorites with this thing.
The one who wants to be guided is guided. So we have to convince Allah subhanaw taala that we need guidance, by our sincerity and by our
to the truth.
Now, having said that, it's very important that we don't try to prove the Quran. And the Sunnah, using, you know, within quotes, what we call scientific evidence, because science is a is a developing body of knowledge, and which automatically means that something we knew yesterday can be proven to be false today. And this is not a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength, it's a sign of the openness of the mind, it's a sign that we are on the way on the road to discovery. So Hamdulillah this is eminently good. But it is different from Revelation and another revelation, which is factual and which doesn't change over time, because Allah knows the formula, there is no
past and future. And therefore Allah knows what is what and therefore Allah subhanaw taala accepts it. Yeah, it doesn't matter. What Allah says, is good for all time. So this is two different
types of knowledge that we have. And we obviously we need both, but we need the knowledge of Revelation
the most, and that's the most critical, because that is an area that science cannot reach can never reach.
And that is the area of the Revelation which comes from away from the unperceivable. And it is unperceivable because it is unforeseeable.
Another miracle that was also
in the Quran is,
as we know, in those days, there were two major powers which had been struggling and fighting against each other for centuries. And they were the Persians and the Romans.
It's very interesting to read the history of the of the Roman Empire, the Western and Eastern Roman Empire. And then the Persian Empire, how the Western the how the Western Roman Empire, centered in Rome, almost completely disappeared. And then the Eastern Roman Empire center in Constantinople
is the one who which lasted until Constantinople was conquered by Mehmet.
Remember the second
the Ottoman ruler, and that that was the end of the Roman Empire totally. Now,
in this struggle between the Persians and Romans, the Persians defeated
Did the Romans and they went all the way to Jerusalem.
They destroyed Jerusalem, and they carried away. Now what the Christians called the True Cross. And the True Cross is the cross, which the Christians believe that is Ali salaam was had been crucified on. So that was the obviously that is not true, because we know that he said, he said I was not crucified. And Allah subhanaw taala saved him, and that somebody else,
a criminal who was sentenced to crucifixion, he was made to look like he said, he said, having the crucified him on this particular cross. But anyway, the, the Christian belief is that this is the, what they call the True Cross. And it is, isn't the it is housed in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
So the Persians carried this away,
too, do Persia.
When this happened,
this conquest of,
of Rome by Persia and the sacking of Jerusalem, the mystic in America, the coloration of the rejoiced, and they taunted the Muslims. And they said to them, that they would defeat them as the Persians and defeated the Romans. Now, what was the similarity? Then the Persians were Mushrikeen, they were they used to wash your fire, whereas, and is worship their own kings, whereas the Romans, they were Christian. So now, even though we don't accept the Christian belief, we don't accept easily ceramist God or son of God and his mother, wherever the CERAM is Mother of God, and you know, the affinity of God, the Father, God, the Son, and the Holy Ghost and so on. We don't believe and
worship any of that. But still, the Christian believe is closer to us. As in believing in each other, as the messenger of Allah and believing in one,
one Creator, Allah subhanho wa Taala is still closer to us than worshipping idols than worshiping the fire and so on. So the Muslims identified themselves with the Christian Romans, where as the most Riki in the idolaters, in Makkah, they identified themselves with the with the Persians.
Now, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah revealed
at that time, they revealed the opening I had of sort of the sort of room which begins with the, with the words holy battle room, and Allah's round robin row has succeeded. So Allah subhanho data,
revealed his Quran and he said, The room has succeeded, which means that Rome will defeat Porsche and this is this is the image at a time when the Roman Empire has been crushed. When when these the center of the Roman Empire which was Jerusalem has been sacked. And the and the true class has been carried away to Persia. I mean, it can get worse than that. But that's what Allah subhanaw taala revealed and I said, worry was a row unless that row has been successful. Now.
I will work out the law who then went to Abuja, and he said, I will bet with you that the Romans will be the portions. So I was Al said, Give me a time. When would this happen? Our current Delarue said in less than 10 years, right Phoebe the SCA, Allah subhanaw taala used this word badius in it, which can mean one to nine years. So our worker on the line who said to me jail, I will bet with you that
Rome will be Persia. And in a period of less than 10 years, somebody had agreed and he said an amount of 100 counts as the bid. Now, that happened on the day that the Muslims won the battle of other
it Rome beat Persia.
And then, again, with a very decisive belief, be decisive victory. Because the Roman legions they went all the way into Persia. And they put out the their eternal flame which they used to worship in the in the temple. So they went into Persia, and this happened on the day of the Battle of brother when the Muslims beat and were victorious over the machine again, of Makkah over the Qureshi army, which had come to fight the Muslims, and this happened in the battlefield of mothers. So the Roman was won, and they defeated the mustachian of Persia, and the Muslims won a battle the most decisive the most important battle and the first of the battles against the machete Kena muck
in the 10th year of revelation
I'm Bill Daley
passed away as I mentioned also yesterday and yesterday is
hotter on this.
I will tell him
passed away. And as I said to, as I mentioned to you
was at his bedside. And he said to him, just say Lila Hallo. Give me something. So I can intercede for you on the Day of Judgment. But I will tell interjected and he said, Are you going to reject the religion of your father's and are you going to denounce the religion of your forefathers? In the end, I will tell him said ball,
mill, abou, Abdullah, he said, I am dying on the religion and the millet of my father of the maternal, and as soon as I sell them
and then you date, I always had to tell him said I will continue to ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive him until Allah tells me to stop. Now, I will tell you, I will try to give most of his life in defense also. He took care of me, we looked after him, he loved him
more than anyone else, he loved him more than he loved his own children.
So it was a very, very difficult time. And as soon as I kept on asking Allah subhanaw taala, to
forgive, I will tell him until Allah subhanaw taala the will the eyes of sorrow, Toba Makana, Lin Nabi will Latina Amano, I just have a few little bougie kin our Locarno guli orba mean by the martaba Jana who unknown as Hannibal Jehoiakim Allah said it is not proper for the Prophet and those who believe to ask Allah's forgiveness for the machinery code for the idolaters the disbelievers even though they be of kin even though they may be related to them, after it has become clear to them that they are dwellers of the Fire because they died in a state of
disbelief. And then Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned in Nicola who the man
well I can Allah Hi, yeah, howdy my Yasha Wahoo are a level below the deen. Allah said and also the process Verily you all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam
guide not whom you like, meaning you have not been given the power to guide whoever you like, but Allah guides whom He wills and he knows best, those who are guided.
this is these are the these are two eyes, which I want to
draw your attention to.
For two reasons. Firstly, the first reason I want you to
draw your attention to this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala for Allah and with Allah, there are no favorites. There is no
relationship between the robbing the Abd Allah and His slave except the relationship of Rome Obeah, then we'll look at
the relationship of Allah subhanaw taala as the one to be worshipped and Allah subhanho wa Taala as the one to be tagged, because He is the Creator, the Sustainer, the maintainer of the app of the slaves. There is no other relationship other than this, Allah is not a friend, Allah is not a relative, Allah is not connected to us in any other way. Right, we should understand very clearly.
Obviously, we don't
see any of this, but
one way in which we tend to create relationships, is by saying so and so is the son of this,
this famous pious person,
a volley of Allah Insha Allah, and therefore this son is special even though the son or his daughter were themselves Mushrikeen even though they did not worship Allah, even though they never prayed and so on and so forth. But they will be in Jannah because their,
their father or cousin or whoever it was, was this great?
You know, we use these terms wisely of Allah as if we know nobody knows except Allah subhanaw taala word just to understand this thing, so socialism. Think about this. The sun
Have any so called Wali.
First of all the earlier of Allah are less than the Obeah of Allah.
Any person who is a Willie of Allah, his status and position is less than the profit of the time or any profit.
The Prophet supposition is less than that of the Rasul the position of the messenger
and Rasulullah sallallahu, the Imam will MBI and say the mousseline the head of the Gambia, the head of the mousseline, the head of the prophets and messengers, his position is unique and the most superior but see what Allah subhanaw taala showed us in the Quran.
The wife of Luther a Salah, who was an abbey
was in the Hellfire because of her own actions, the wife that the son of Noah salah, who is one of the biggest of the results of Allah's battle,
and that's where teleserye died, without humanities from the people of the Hellfire. The father of Ibrahim Alayhi salaam, honey Lulu.
is in the Hellfire
because he was an idolatry. He was a worshipper of idols and Allah subhanaw taala said he's in the hellfire.
The uncle of rasool Allah, He's our son,
his greatest supporter who loved him.
Still, he is in the hellfire and Allah's mountain has mentioned in the Quran,
because he did not believe in those verses. So just loving the prophets of Allah was not sufficient. We need to believe in Him. We need to follow Him,
obey Him and do it. This is a very important lesson for us to remember. And for us to keep in our minds and for us to carry with us because this is the
unfortunately this is a source of great
ideas that people have about Islam
can lead to shirk in different forms, to believe that somebody will be forgiven because of their relationship with this or that bias person is one of the forms of shame. So please let us not forget with these things, let us do and follow with the religion that was sent abroad. While Salah had a very wild idea he was being made better together.
