Hello Bill alameen wa salatu salam ala freedom v when was really hammered Rasul Allah is Allah Allah highly evolved he was able to send them to sleep and within kathira from Abbado My dear brothers and sisters, we continue with our series of reminders for Ramadan al Karim, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to enable us to become a tepee and to use this month in a way that pleases His grace and majesty and which will become a source of great higher and Baraka for us in this life and in the next life. inshallah. We're talking about the issue of
the purpose of Ramadan which Allah subhanaw taala described and said Hootie Valley Kumasi, Latina Ave quotevalet Kumasi, amo Camargo de vida Latina Camila, Camila condado, which means all you believe
fasting has been prescribed upon you, as it was prescribed on those before you so that you have become a motor home. And over the last four days, I have also mentioned to you and explained to you my understanding of taqwa and how we can build the which is by entirely increasing our show, and increasing our hope of Allah subhanho. We increase her show by reflecting and contemplating on the glory and majesty and the holder of the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala and increase our
hope of Allah the love of Allah by reflecting on and thanking Allah subhanho data for his blessings. My brothers sisters, I remind you and myself
that the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it is very important not to understand the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala is comparatively easy, because
it's very visible, and it's very clear, right? Be it small or big, whether you are contemplating on the size of the universe, for example,
there is a beautiful video where this man tries to explain the size of the universe. And he holds up a grain of sand on the tip of his tongue, tip of his finger. And then he holds it up like that at arm's length. And he says, shut one eye and look at that. And he says the part of the sky or the universe that is
blocked out by that grain of sand on the tip of your finger
contains billions of galaxies, the size of our galaxy, which is called the Milky Way, billions of galaxies, we're not talking about planetary system, we're not talking about solar systems, we're definitely not even talking about planets and forever The earth is not doesn't even come into the into the calculation, billions of galaxies the size of our Milky Way. So if you whether you're contemplating on that, and this is the, what is called the known universe, which is what is visible to us through the Hubble telescope, and through various space probes that we have, and whatever technology that is available to us today.
That's the visible universe. Now what is the invisible universe which is beyond that only Allah knows. And Allah subhanho data is not just the creator of the sun and the moon, compared to this size, the sun and the moon are nothing they're less than nothing. And the earth is even less because the Earth The sun is
roughly what is it the exact number I forget, but it's like, you know 300,000 times or something like this
bigger and more massive than the Earth and more. And if that is nothing, then the earth can you can imagine the significance of the earth.
So, that is the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala when we reflect on it from in the in the in the context of massive thing, if you look at it in the in, in the context of small things, we have the most glaring example of that, which is the which is the corona COVID virus. One thing which is microscopic, which cannot even be seen, by the naked eye, brought the earth to its knees brought the human race to its knees, all the power and all the wealth and all the weapons and all everything of the human race could do nothing to prevent
themselves from being affected. They could do nothing. The only thing they could do was to shut themselves down and even that didn't prevent literally hundreds of 1000s in I think if I take the global number it's it's a couple of million people from dying because of this virus.
Even today, even with the vaccine,
we do not have an effective cure for the virus we don't we don't even have an effective 100% protection from the virus, everything has become relative. Right? Now the point is, this is also the glory and majesty of Allah, and everything else in between and everything is beyond the biggest and everything is beyond the smallest, smaller than this one is bigger than the biggest. These are the glory of Allah Sparta. But with regard to the nehama of Allah to the blessings of Allah, this is a more complex process, because in many cases,
the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala sometimes come disguised as trials and tribulations as difficulties. Right, you think of the beginning of the earth, water came to this earth in the form of a strong, and you can imagine the colossal size of that storm, the kind of what it must have done, because that water is the sum total of the water that we have on the earth today. What we see and what we don't see even the subterranean water is part of that storm. All the oceans are part of that straw. Imagine that we imagine the water of all the oceans together, hits you what happens to you. And then of course, that storm was bigger than that, because it all that water which came to
the earth also went to Mercury and Venus.
Right. And then the earth had a colossal collision with another planet called Thea, which was about the size of the Earth and on an intersecting orbit, and we met and the result was that the central core of sia, which was made of iron,
entered the earth and became part of the core of the Earth and the mantle of the accreted onto the mantle of the earth.
So both Earth both iron and water came to us from outer space. Allah subhanaw taala sent that to the earth. And of course, that last one that I mentioned this in the Quran,
Allah says we have sent to Aladdin
and Zelda and Zelda al Haddad. Allah has sent down muscle of the habit of iron.
today, if I ask you is water a NEMA blessing which of course because life cannot exist without water? We are 70% made out of water. And of course Allah subhanaw taala told us that every living thing he created out of water.
But imagine that storm at the time of the stop did it look like an AMA didn't look like a blessing? If you had to be there if I had been there of course we were not the object if we were if we had been there did that look like? Would that have looked like a blessing? What about a collision? What do you call a call you call a collision? May Allah protect us but you know if this earth even collides with,
with something no forget about some colliding with another planet, the size of the Earth.
Even if it collides with something much smaller than that, we are looking at catastrophic
catastrophe. The entire cities might get annihilated and you know millions of people and animals and everything else might be might be wiped off the face of the earth. So a collision and a strong an absolutely terrifying storm and a collision. You wouldn't call these blessings that I by any stretch of the imagination. But that but today if you think about that, is that what what were these two things blessings?
These two things are probably the biggest blessings as far as in a material sense that as far as the earth is concerned.
What would the earth be without any water?
It will be like Mars
it will be like Venus.
Right? No life is possible.
Imagine iron and water all we do with
the lesson we do from this is that let us now look into our own lives and say what are the storms and collisions in my life and try to look at them with a different perspective and say, This is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala except that I am not able to see how it is a blessing. So two things one is I thank Allah hamdulillah even if I don't see it 100 is a blessing. And secondly, you ask Allah to show you how it's a blessing so that you can thank you even more.
But there should be no word of thankless ness on our time. When we talk about what comes from Allah. When we talk about what Allah subhanho wa Taala sends us in whichever way he serves us because he knows.
the blessing sometimes comes disguised
and you just throw
thankfulness that we are able to see. Beyond the disguise was Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was I remember how to garma rhymey salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa
