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

Killer Nana Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam Allah, Allah be able mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just leaving because he didn't consider from avato

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

my neighbors and sisters

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

Alhamdulillah we are on the story of Tao la sala.

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

In our series of lectures on the lives of the MBA the lessons from the

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

lives of the MBA Musan, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make these means of guidance for us. That is the reason why I lost 100 data centers and BIA to be means of guidance for people. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance to him. My brothers and sisters, I remind myself I knew that there are only two things which are critical which are the rules

00:00:53--> 00:01:16

for human beings. One is guidance and the other one is forgiveness. And both come from Allah. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who guides nobody else. Unless rhondella setra Mr. Salah in this beautiful ayat, which was revealed as a as a way of converting him. But others Roger said la de man I

00:01:18--> 00:01:37

work in Allaha, demon Russia. Last Mandela said which means you cannot guide whoever you like. But Allah subhanaw taala guides whoever he likes, and this ayat was revealed as a as a means of converting a soul as a seller because Rasulullah Salah used to sometimes get so anguished

00:01:38--> 00:02:08

and so emotionally affected by the fact that people were not listening to him that people that his people, especially some of the most important people in his life, some of the most influential people in his own family did not follow him. And this hurt him. And this perturbed him a great deal because he knew the results of dying without Islam, including his own two

00:02:09--> 00:02:37

uncles, Abu lahab and Vitaly. Both of them died without Islam. And this was something that really and truly caused a lot of anguish and a lot of pain resources Allah and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this for LA LA bajo nafsa Allah, Allah said that in subtle Kabbalah said, Are you going to kill yourself? Are you going to harm yourself?

00:02:38--> 00:03:13

Because you are so anguished and so worried and perturbed, that these people are not listening to you. And then that is the reason why last revealed this ayah where he mentioned this and unless Matera said that Allah can guide and you cannot get the reason I'm saying that is because both of these guidance and nefarious Of course, we know that life was gonna boil Allah, that nobody forgives sins except Allah subhanaw taala. So therefore, this is a part of our fundament lucky that, that we do not ascribe the

00:03:15--> 00:03:51

the qualities of guidance and forgiveness to anyone other than a lot smarter. We don't seek forgiveness from anybody else. And we don't seek guidance or anybody else. Meaning of course, when I say guidance, obviously, if you don't know the way you ask somebody for the way that is seeking guidance, that does not mean that I'm not talking about that kind of guidance, I'm talking about guidance towards Allah subhanaw taala a spiritual guidance, guidance towards the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala guidance towards helping us to recognize the loss of mantle and so on. And so also as far as forgiveness is concerned, of course, and obviously and clearly and most most

00:03:51--> 00:04:11

essential and important, that we should seek the forgiveness of those we run. Now and to the extent this is so important, that are sort of set aside and said that Allah will not forgive a person unless the one that person wronged forgives him first. So very important for us to seek forgiveness from the people we

00:04:12--> 00:04:22

who we have wronged but we are talking about eventual final forgiveness, which is the forgiveness that comes first of all, all the hakuho Allah subhanaw taala that we have not fulfilled.

00:04:23--> 00:04:29

Nobody can forgive that except a lot. For example, if I don't, if I don't pray, I can't go and ask somebody else.

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

To forgive me for not praying because the Salah is for Allah subhanho wa Taala so we seek forgiveness Allah only because only Allah and similarly, even though I may have done something wrong to somebody, and I may have sought their forgiveness, and they may have forgiven me or told me that they forgave me yet. It is Allah subhanaw taala prerogative to still punish me for not punishment. Therefore we ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness, even after asking forgiveness from those women

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

Have prompt.

00:05:02--> 00:05:16

Now obviously, there is no concept of deliberately harming somebody in Islam and Muslim does not do this deliberately. But if you if you, if that happens, if it happened out of your control in a in a way that was not in your control, or if it happened,

00:05:17--> 00:05:36

you know, inadvertently, then of course we do go and we seek forgiveness. And even if you have done something deliberately, I mean, I'm Muslim should not do it. But if you all did what we showed, then we would not be where we are. So obviously we do things we should not do, even though we know they are wrong. But once we know that once we have

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

once it has been brought to our notice that this thing is wrong. And we have now we understand that then it's very important that we correct ourselves.

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

Now in the book of in

00:05:49--> 00:06:36

the story of dogmatism, that's why I said the the last round that I sent us, and told us the stories of Zambia, mussalam is His prophets and messengers, so that we learn lessons, we learn very important lessons to apply in our own lives. That's very important thing to keep in mind. Now, that wasn't his era, he had. I mentioned to you the story of novelist Salaam Angelou, David and Goliath. And we talked about the lessons that we learned from that story. Now, the other day Salaam he had a very beautiful voice, and he used to recite as a boo, which was the Kitab, a book that was revealed to him, and he would recite that in a very beautiful tone. And he would make zeker in a very

00:06:36--> 00:06:46

beautiful tone. And Laura said that the mountains of the birds used to listen to him and listen to him and repeat it after him. I will Musashi

00:06:47--> 00:07:29

Milan who this idea of the Mr. solemn, he had the most beautiful voice, or one of the most beautiful voices among the Sahaba as well I had him in mind, and rustlers are seldom heard him once. And he said to him, you have been given a flute, like the flute of the family of the old meaning that Allah has given you a voice that he gave to the organism. There is a very beautiful story in the Sierra, where our Musashi Rolla Golan who was in masa NaVi, he was praying some knuffle Salah, and in the Salah, he was reciting Quran, and in the course of that he had this sensation.

00:07:30--> 00:07:55

He felt as if somebody is behind him, somebody standing behind him, maybe listening to him or something. But anyway, he was in Salah, so obviously you didn't turn around to see, but when you finished your setup, he saw some standing there. And he made salami. He said jasola Suhana. You were standing there. That's what I said. I was enjoying your recitation, I was just listening to your recitation. I was I said actually,

00:07:57--> 00:08:10

Allah, if I had known that, it was you listening to that I would have beautified it even more. So this is the love that Russell that the Sahaba had for the Kitab of Allah. And for Sorolla, he's Elena hottie who's

00:08:13--> 00:08:27

my brother sister that was around until I said in sort of in sort of the Saba while ago da da da da would mean fontlab Yeah, Jeeva Lua VB Mara who would play well Alan Allah who headed

00:08:29--> 00:09:12

an email Serbia via tin bucket, dear fish sub Rama loose Allah Hi. In a Rhema Dharma Luna was here last year and indeed, we have bestowed grace and, and blessing on download from us. Elisa Lam. All you mountains glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala with him and you birds also. And we made the made iron soft for him, saying make you perfect courts of male balancing well the rings of chain armor and work you men righteousness. Truly I am all seer of what you do.

00:09:13--> 00:09:37

Now see this beautiful life. But I'm not sure about that as ordering the mountains and the birds to join down a salamin is a recitation of the boar and in his digger and Lessing, you also make digger and you also join him in that so they used to listen to him, and they would repeat after him and they would make the curve in a way that Allah knows best. And the second thing is Allah said that he

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

made iron

00:09:41--> 00:09:56

soft for the very syrups without that Islam could actually work with iron, like you would work with maybe plasticine or something and, and done it and so on and so forth. Now, Allah subhanaw taala taught him how to make chainmail armor

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

and then in suits, I'm

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

Be a matter of alumna who. Sonata lebu silicone, Leto Hasina comin by SQL for hell and Tom Shakira and Allah said we taught him the making of metal courts of male which is armor for battles to protect you in your fighting. I will then not grateful now at that time allow the reason I'm the only armor that was there was what we know today as plate armor

00:10:27--> 00:11:02

which is really just sheets of metal riveted together which are which are then you know strapped on to the to the soldier. If you look at medieval armor for those of you who are in the UK, I strongly recommend if you are in Leeds sometimes go to the Leeds go to Leeds armory. Now there is a museum of Armory in Leeds called Leeds armory one of the most interesting places that I've ever visited and directly across from there is a pizza shop which has some of the best pizzas that I've ever eaten.

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

So in that in that

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

bleeds armoury

00:11:09--> 00:11:13

this very interesting exhibits there's they also have live exhibits you have

00:11:14--> 00:11:30

somebody who is who's all dressed up who demonstrates how some some weapons were used. For example, it shows you other broadsword Vaduz, he shows you how

00:11:31--> 00:11:42

long bow was used. He shows you how a crossbow was used and so on. And so a very interesting short lectures where you can go and actually see a person like a medieval soldier

00:11:43--> 00:11:48

and trust the weapon and see how it was wielded.

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

Now the the Knights were the people who used to where

00:11:55--> 00:12:08

most people were worn some kinds of some kind of armor. The most common which the common soldier wore was something called the Gimson which was really a very thick padded

00:12:09--> 00:12:34

coat. So it absorbs some blows, it wouldn't. I mean, he didn't know he didn't know too much of protection, but it was you know, some some protection. And then you had the the really heavily armored people were the Knights who would wear plate armor. So under the armor, they would have this thick

00:12:35--> 00:13:17

battered thing, which the idea of that also was to keep their own bodies from being you know, bruised because of the armor. And then this armor would be strapped on to them, they couldn't possibly wear it on their own, they had a they had what is called a Squire, sometimes they had to Squires, so these choirs would put the armor on them and then at the back, they would tighten all the straps and so on and so forth. They will put you know the piece to protect the here and then they will be a top piece here. Then there was an elbow covering which which still needed to give you enough for playing your elbow to still wield your sword or mace.

00:13:19--> 00:13:28

And Lance I mean they didn't use bows and arrows the Knights did use that but Lance's and mazes and basically the broad short

00:13:29--> 00:14:16

they had as if they're on horseback they had a cavalry sword which had a longer reach and then they would be the helmet on the on the on top of the heads and the helmet had a visor now in some cases the visor was just had a slit here for the eyes. So it restricted their sight the vision of the the the field of vision tremendously, but obviously it protected the head and it had a thing in the back suede protected the back of the neck and so on some some of the big warriors they prefer to fight without a helmet. Because they felt that the the the field of sight that it gave them and the freedom and give them was preferable and that would that was there a better protection than the

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

helmet itself. So these courts of our word were very, very heavy.

00:14:22--> 00:15:00

That's why they had a special breed of horse called the desertrian. And I'm talking now about the normal knights and talking about medieval England. So they had just a mini medieval Europe basically not even England, medieval Europe. So they had these, this special breed of horse called desperate. It's a very is one of my regrets that this this is this is becoming extinct. The breed is gone. The breed is called is called Austria. These were kind of midway between. If you say it take an Irish hunter and a Clydesdale. One of the biggest

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

farm horse farming horses and one of the one of the very sturdy,

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

you know,

00:15:08--> 00:15:28

they sturdy sort of cross country riding horses. So this was a midway between the two. And that's just where we're, they were trained for war. So these horses also fought, the horse protected his rider. The horse also fought the horse was actually trained to bite into kick and so on. So but

00:15:30--> 00:15:50

it was a formidable weapon by itself. The horse also had armor, it had armor on his face. It had some have on the neck, it had some sometimes on the sides. The night used to have to be winched up into the saddle of his horse. So the night was on would be on the ground, the Squires would

00:15:51--> 00:16:24

would would put on his armor, everything. And then he would be they would there was a hook on top and there would be a winch and he would be winched up, and then he would be put into saddle. And once he was in a saddle, he can dismount, I mean even to urinate and so on. And so what he had to do it inside his armor, and the only time he got off was at the end of the battle, when he would be again, winched off the horse. And in the battle itself, and this was one of the things that the enemy soldiers wanted to try to do was to,

00:16:25--> 00:17:08

to get the night off the horse. Now, obviously, that was not easy to do, because the the Knights knew what was in store for him. So he made sure he stayed on the horse. And the horse itself was a very powerful animal and are trained for battle. Now, so it wasn't so easy to an horse the night. But if they did that, and the night fell on the ground, then he was more like a beetle, you know, which is turned upside down on Scarface, he was helpless, he couldn't even turn, he couldn't even roll over. He couldn't stand up on his own. And the enemy soldier would just quietly, you'd that's what they did, actually, they would walk up to the night very, you know, without any problem. And

00:17:08--> 00:17:43

they will take a long blade sharp knife, and they would lift up the visor, and they would, they would stick the knife through their eye into their brain. So they would just shove the knife up like that into the night. And that was night out for the night. Or they will just lift his head up. Just like that with the helmet and cut his throat. So it's quite a brutal thing. If you look at medieval battles, they were extremely brutal affairs. So this night, but on the other hand, well, as long as the Knight was on his horse,

00:17:44--> 00:18:31

it was like a minor or like a small battle tank today. He was practically invincible. There was no other there was no weapon that could get to him. The armor plate armor protected him. And there was almost no way of killing that night just like that you can throw a spear and you could throw a spear it will bounce off if you try to hit him with a sword. The sword would bounce off and so on. So it was a he was almost impregnable, impregnable. And he was almost indestructible. He was like a little, like a small, you know, tank by himself. This is how Incidentally, the Spaniards, within course, did so well. When they went to South America with the Incas, and the Incas and the Aztecs,

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

who were

00:18:36--> 00:19:07

you know, there were people who didn't have the weapons to deal with armored knights and then Spaniards were, you know, the armor just differed in terms of some design brothers will same thing. So when they saw the Spanish soldiers on those horses, there was really nothing they could do. They're just bounced off. And the Spaniards are absolutely It was like a, like wolves in a sheep pen. I mean, they the masses of people were slaughtered by a few Knights of the Spaniards. Very bloody history as far as

00:19:09--> 00:19:29

these conquests and occupation of the Americas are concerned. Anyway, to return to the story of the algorithm. The algorithm was the first man who created the chainmail armor. a chimera was a huge, huge, huge revolution in in battle because the chainmail did

00:19:31--> 00:20:00

almost everything that plate armor did for you without the weight. So the one biggest disadvantage the plate armor was wonderful, was very, very good as far as protecting the soldier was concerned. But its biggest disadvantage was the weight. So the soldier at this night had to carry this and imagine you're you're sitting on ours, you're carrying this or if you're walking, you're walking all day, from dawn to dusk. The enormous effort of that of these people were

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Some very, very strong people. But despite all that the the enormous effort of that was, was killing. Whereas in gym and armor now it was like, I mean, the guy would have felt as if he's doing nothing. Because if he was used to carrying that kind of weight with chainmail, he was, he had very little weight, number one, number two, because it was chainmail, and it was just linked like this. He had enormous flexibility. I mean, is it with the plate armor, he couldn't really move. I neither fast nor flexibly. So his movements were restricted, but with chainmail, his movements were completely unrestricted. So he or he had freedom of movement. And he was protected. And it was

00:20:41--> 00:20:58

light. So it was an absolute revolution. And that was really Salaam, to the best of my knowledge was the first man who made chainmail armor. And I looked around and said that he taught voulait ceram to make these quotes of

00:20:59--> 00:21:11

chainmail armor, and with his bare hands, because the last router like gave him disability, he made iron soft in the hands of the elderly syrups who didn't have to work with

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

with, you know, big

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

fires and, and animals and hammers and everything else, it was very easy for him.

00:21:24--> 00:21:47

And he used to live by what he earned. So this is another of the many follow oil and qualities of the elderly ceram that he did not take from the Treasury, even though he was the king, unlike, unlike other kings, thou that Islam worked with his hands. And he sold that and what he got as

00:21:48--> 00:22:03

the price of his labor. This is what he ate with. And as soon as Adam said that the most halaal income of all was that of the old Elisa Lam, who worked with his hands and lived by what he earned.

00:22:04--> 00:22:31

And as I said, This is despite the fact that he was one of the kings of bunnies, right. And he was responsible for actually leading them into the Golden Age. Despite that he used to do this. The second thing without the laser, I'm used to do was he would eat one day, and he would fast the next day. So the whole year, every alternate day, download a sample fast, is actually a wonderful thing to do.

00:22:32--> 00:23:17

Obviously, fasting is for Allah subhanaw taala and we do it for his pleasure. But from a health perspective also, it's a wonderful thing to eat on one day and too fast on the next day. Just do that throughout the year. Obviously, we have Ramadan Kareem so in Ramadan, we fast for all the days Ramadan, and then the other days Indonesia and Muharram and so on. But other than that, rest of the year when we are not doing this Ramadan fasting and so on, it's a very good thing to fast on one day and to eat on the other days every alternate day. Fasting, of course, also known as SLM is too fast on Mondays and Thursdays. So you might like to do that. And also used to fast on the 12th 13th and

00:23:17--> 00:23:37

14th or 13th 14th and 15th of each month, each lunar month 1314 and 15. What of all the white knights, the Knights of the full moon themselves too fast on those nights also. So it's these are all very good things to do. Now the lesson we learned from here is that personal piety,

00:23:38--> 00:24:05

working to please Allah subhanho wa Taala sacrificing one's own efforts, these are all requirements of status with Allah, even though Tao la Salaam was an OB, he did not leave any of these things. So now there is and I was a was not just an abuse anime, he was a cyborg Kitab he had he received the book from valterra. Yet he

00:24:07--> 00:24:53

he did that he ensured that his personal piety, his personal worship, and so on, never laxed and never lapsed. So sort of also, after the ayat was revealed forgiving is since a notorious alum used to pray and he would pray in the Hadoop sometimes, a solar system would stand for so long, that his blessed feet would swell. So says I just did the hora de la onhow movie now mother, she asked him she arcilla why'd you stress yourself so much? Why do you take so much of strain on yourself? When Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven all your sins and Allah revealed it there is not a it's not about of guessing or hoping Allah subhanaw taala said very clearly that I have forgiven all your sins

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

before and after. Why should you Why'd you do that? He said Should I not be a grateful slave? Should I not be

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

grateful slave. This is a question is asking

00:25:03--> 00:25:43

a lot about that I mentioned again and he said we were you sub bihu where you said the Harada we have the wall mala eco tomiki fortiva your pseudo Sawa he thought for you see we have a Yeshua Maha Mudra mujer de Luna Villa he, Portia de Mahal, and our rod, the thunder glorifies and praises Allah. And so do the angels. Because of his all. He sends the Thunderbolts, and there when he strikes whom He wills, yet the disbelievers dispute, and unlimited is mighty, and severe in strength, and severe punishment, and loss Mandela's

00:25:45--> 00:26:14

creation praises him and this is the important thing to understand that when we praise Allah subhanaw taala when we glorify Him, when we worship Him, this is something that we are joining with the rest of creation in doing all of creation, praises Allah subhanaw taala used to be hula he maphis allottee one Earth, Allah said that everything in the heavens and the earth prisoners matter, and so do we Alhamdulillah

00:26:15--> 00:26:22

and that's why we need to thank Allah for the blessing that he gave us. Now a lot Rhonda

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

gave down a Salaam dystopia. And he gave him this training and this teaching of how to make chainmail armor. And then Allah said, Are you not grateful. And that's why we need to be grateful to last Mandela, for everything we have in life. Because all knowledge all thinking or designing ability in all kinds of powers come only and only from Allah subhanaw taala. We are mostly overawed by technology. And we become intimidated by people who have it or invented.

00:26:54--> 00:27:17

But remember, that person who invented the technology, Allah is the one who created him. Allah is the one who gave him that knowledge. Allah is the one who allowed him to do what he or she produced. And I'm going to give you some real examples of this when I say that the knowledge comes to me from a lot of other sisters, really think about that.

00:27:18--> 00:28:06

Remember, the street dog, my chef is to say that if you throw a stone at a street dog, the dog will not bite the stone, the dog will come and bite you. Because even the dog knows who the real file is file mp3. Cotabato is daikon. He's to say that the real file being the real person who is behind the Act, the dog knows the stone cannot do anything. The dog knows that to do something has to be something which is somebody which is alive, and he look for you, and he sees you You are the guy who threw the stone he comes for you. And this is the tragedy of human beings that we end up getting engaged with and getting stuck with the means through which we experience the blessing and the

00:28:06--> 00:28:13

horrors of Allah subhanaw taala. For some of us, it is literally stones. For others. It's not stones, its ideas, it is

00:28:14--> 00:28:48

thoughts, it is things like technology, theory, philosophy, what not, but we really have to change ourselves. And thank Allah subhanaw taala. Now for the technology. Now, we get instead of getting intimidated and impressed by those who invent things, we have to, by all means praise them, and they're doing a good job. But at the same time, remember that the thanks goes only to the one who created the person and the technology who gave him that bread, who gave him those ideas and allowed him

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

to, to or to,

00:28:52--> 00:29:00

to to implement those ideas in their lives. My brother sisters me I told you, I'll give you some real example sick penicillin, for example, like

00:29:01--> 00:29:28

Fleming is the one who identified in 1928. They actually used it only in the 1940s but from 920 years to 1941 1012 years. It was it was still there, but they hadn't used now, Fleming noticed a halo of inhibition of bacterial growth around the contaminant, blue green mold on a staphylococcus plate culture.

00:29:29--> 00:29:55

So he this mold, which got onto the split culture was actually a contaminant it wasn't supposed to be there. It turned up somehow. So, Fleming concluded that the mold was bold, meaning a fungus was releasing a substance that was inhibiting bacterial growth. He grew up your culture of the mod, and discovered that this thing was called was

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

Penicillium notato. withheld from

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

Kevin's tea isolated, what he later called penicillin. During the next 12 years, he grew and distributed the original, more unsuccessfully trying to get help from any chemist that had enough skill to make a stable form of this for mass production. But Arab stable wires use the same substance to cure horses in 1895. and India and China used to use it in ancient prehistoric times. Think about that, here is a natural product that almost Ratana created. And then he gave some human beings an idea to,

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

to he showed it to some people and he gave them the idea to develop it, to use as a

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

as as as one of the most powerful

00:30:51--> 00:31:35

bactericides that exists one of the most powerful medicines which saved you know, millions of lives. Now another one is auto Louis, German born physiologist. He won the Nobel Nobel Prize for medicine in 1936. for his work on the chemical transmission of nerve impulses. In 19 03. Lou I had the idea that there might be a chemical transmission of the nervous pulse, rather than an electrical one, which was the commonly held belief until that time, but he was at a loss on how to prove it. He loved the idea slipped to the back on mine until 17 years later, he had the following dream which he narrated

00:31:36--> 00:32:20

to law, he said the night before Easter Sunday of that year, I walk, turn on the light and jotted down a few notes on a tiny slip of paper. Then I fell asleep again. It occurred to me at six o'clock in the morning there during the night, I had written on something most important, but I was unable to decipher the scrawl. The next night at three o'clock, the idea returned. It was the design of an experiment to determine whether or not the hypotheses of chemical transmission that I had uttered 17 years ago was correct. I got away immediately went to the laboratory and performed a single experiment on a frog's heart. According to the nocturnal design. It took literally a decade to carry

00:32:20--> 00:32:56

out a decisive series of tests to satisfy his critics. But ultimately, the result of his initial dream include induced his his dream induced experiment became the foundation for the theory of chemical transmission of nervous impulse and led to a Nobel Prize for him. Another one is Frederick Auguste struggle knits is a remarkable figure the history of chemistry, specifically organic chemistry twice, he had,

00:32:57--> 00:33:48

he had dreams that led to major discoveries, he discovered the tetravalent nature of carbon, the formation of chemical organic structure theory, but he did not make this breakthrough by experimentation loan, he had a dream, as he described in a speech given at the German Chemical Society, he said, I fell into a rewari and lo, the atoms were gambling before my eyes, they were playing before my eyes. Whenever either to these diminutive beings that appeared to me, there always been in motion. But up to that time, I had never been able to discern the nature of the motion. Now However, now however, I saw how frequently to smaller atoms united to form a pair, and how a larger

00:33:48--> 00:34:33

one embrace the two smaller ones, how still larger ones kept hold of three or even four of the smaller ones. While the whole kept wriggling in a giddy dance. I saw how the larger ones formed the chain, dragging the smaller ones after them, but only at the end of the chain. The cry of the conductor clapper road, awaken me from my dream, but I spend part of the night and putting on paper at least sketches of these dream forms. This was the origin of this structural theory. Later, he had a dream that helped him discover that the benzene molecule unlike other known organic compounds, had a circular structure rather than a linear one.

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

solving a problem that had been confounding chemists. He says I was sitting writing on my textbook, but the work did not progress. My thoughts were elsewhere, I turned my chair to the fire and dosed. Again, the atoms were gambling we're playing before my eyes. This time the smaller groups kept modestly in the background, my mental I render more acute by the repeated

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

revisions of this guy could now distinguish larger structures of manifold conformation, long rows, sometimes more closely fitted together, or twining and twisting in a snake like motion. But look, what was that one of the snakes have seize hold of its own tail, and the form world, mockingly before my eyes. As you buy a flash of lightning, I walk. And this time also I spend the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypotheses. The stairs, the snake, seizing its own tail, gave him the circular structure idea, he needed to solve the benzene problem. He said to his colleagues, very excited, Lisa, let us learn to dream. Now all of these are

00:35:50--> 00:36:16

signs or las panatela inspiring people in different ways, and giving human beings the knowledge that they need to go forward in their development. And that's the reason why it's very important for us to be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala and acknowledge the source of this knowledge. The last one that I want to mention too, is a very common one, which is the design of the sewing machine.

00:36:19--> 00:37:04

Elias Howe invented the sewing machine in 1845. He had the idea of a machine with a needle, which would go through a piece of cloth, but he couldn't figure out exactly how it would work. He first tried a he was tried using a needle that was pointed, pointed at both ends with an eye in the middle. But it was a failure. Then one night, he dreamt he was taken prisoner by a group of of what they called natives. By this they mean non white people. They were dancing around him with spears, as he saw them move around him, you notice that their spears all had holes near their tips. When he when he woke up, he realized that the dream had brought the solution to his problem by locating a

00:37:04--> 00:37:31

hole at the tip of the needle. The third could be caught after it went through the cloth, thus making his machine operable. And those of you who have seen a sewing machine in action, you can you can see that if you haven't seen one in action go and find the nearest darzee. And you will find it so he changed his design to incorporate the dream idea. And he found that it worked. My brothers sisters

00:37:35--> 00:37:41

asked Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to do that which is really which pleases Him. Because the

00:37:42--> 00:37:54

the whole point of all of this is to be careful with Allah subhanaw taala and to understand the benefit and beauty of

00:37:55--> 00:38:26

of, of living our lives in a way, which pleases Allah subhanaw taala the stories of the size of the BLM Sarah are meant for this for demand for to give us this guidance to live our lives in a way that pleases Allah subhanaw taala and in the story of Tao that is Salaam we are seeing how there's so many lessons that we learn May Allah bless men may Allah smart Allah bless all of you and enable you to do that which pleases Him.

00:38:28--> 00:38:29

ask Allah subhanaw taala to

00:38:30--> 00:38:44

enable us to you know, to really understand these things in a way that is beneficial for us. So if you look at it today, we live in a world where technology is God, love Allah, Allah villa.

00:38:46--> 00:39:14

We ask a lot to save us from that, where we treat technology as if it's the solution to all problems. Technology is not the solution to all problems, technology, there is a tool and in order to really benefit from this tool, it is very important for us to recognize the creator of the tool and that is Allah subhanaw taala jello, and to thank him for giving us this technology and to thank him for

00:39:16--> 00:39:26

enabling us to understand it and use it in ways which are beneficial for all of us. Well, son of Alana Vickery Murali who savage manera
