Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah obod Allah subhanho wa Taala sets and o de Minaya Tina villa. De unforseen. Bojan Allahumma hulak la said, Verily, We will show them our signs in the utmost horizons in the universe and within inside themselves, so that it will become clear to them that this Quran is indeed the truth.

00:00:27--> 00:00:50

It's interesting, a very important thing for us to realize. And I want to remind myself and you that all discoveries, realizations and understanding about the universe can only confirm and reinforce the message of the Quran. If they don't, then it means that the discovery is faulty and needs to be checked. The discovery does not prove the authenticity of the Quran.

00:00:51--> 00:01:10

The Quran proves the authenticity of the discovery. Islam therefore welcomes all research to gain more understanding of ourselves and our nature and of the universe in which we live. Because these discoveries can only bring the researcher close to Allah subhanaw taala and to the point where he or she will acknowledge in worship the one who created them.

00:01:11--> 00:01:40

Allah subhanaw taala mentions this clearly and encourages scientific research, the result of which Allah subhanaw taala promises will be our understanding of where we stand in terms of ourselves and our Creator, and our responsibility to him as well as to each other on this earth. It is when it is when research is done with sincerity and genuine desire to learn the true realization about ourselves happens Allah subhanaw taala said in a few focus amatola Allah

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

Allah Allah the Quran, Allah,

00:01:46--> 00:01:58

Allah Genova him with a Corona fecal cassava to a lot of beneva Hala, Tabata, Allah Subhana Kakinada not Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the

00:01:59--> 00:02:23

believers I mentioned the the people who will search and he said that in Ramadan very early in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the succession of the night and the day, there are indeed messages for people of intelligence, these people are those the intelligent people are those who remember Allah subhanaw taala, standing, sitting and lying on their sides and reflect on which means research into the creation

00:02:25--> 00:02:40

of the heavens and the earth and spontaneously cry out or our rub. You have not created any of this without purpose or our say, limitless Are you in your glory, keep us safe from the punishment of the Fire.

00:02:41--> 00:03:27

Islam means submission. So when a Muslim is saying that he is a Muslim, he is talking about submitting his likes and dislikes and will and feelings and emotions, thoughts and logic to the will of Allah subhanaw taala submit unquestioningly and with complete acceptance and trust that his way is the best. And that in it lies our own success in this world. And the next, Islam invites the individual to reflect that though a seatbelt restricts movement, it is precisely this restriction. That is the reason for saving life. The one who recognizes the value of the restriction actually welcomes it, and invites others also to wear seat belts. So also in Islam, the Muslim recognizes

00:03:27--> 00:04:10

that in submitting to the restrictions and rules, the so called restrictions and rules of Islam, in this submission lies his own benefit in this world, and deliverance in the era, the one who wants freedom from seatbelts is opening himself to grievous injury or even death in the event of a crash. So also someone who refuses to recognize Allah subhanaw taala is opening himself to the embarrassment of facing him on the Day of Judgment. And realizing too late, that what had been told to him all through his life in the world was not fantasy or imaginary. But fact and that is why Islam emphasizes submission to such an extent that even worship is to be done in a prescribed

00:04:10--> 00:04:53

manner. One can't worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that one may wish, but can do can worship only in the way that was shown to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam by Allah subhanaw taala and by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to us. Any worship that is done without following the prescribed way is not acceptable. Naturally, the same principle of submission extends to every single aspect of life, both public and private. Islam is not about our private space alone. It is about our public life, about our relations with society, our dealings, manners, legal framework, and government. This is logical, because Allah subhanaw taala instructions naturally must extend to all aspects of life and

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

cannot be restricted just to some rituals of worship alone. Islam prescribes what is good for also

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

Society, Muslim or not, and prohibits what is bad for society, Muslim or not, it is the general good, which is the uppermost concern for Islam. I therefore remind myself and you not to see the so called rules and restrictions of Islam in the true light, which is that these are meant for our benefit for our safety and for our

00:05:24--> 00:06:10

to create a moral and good society, that will be a joy for everyone who lives in it, whether they are Muslim or not. The restrictions are not placed there, by Allah subhanho wa Taala for for some purpose of its own, Allah subhanho wa Taala it does not affect Allah subhanho wa Taala whether or not we live our lives in a peaceful, harmonious, good, moral, ethical way or not. All of those things are purely for our benefit. What Allah subhanaw taala does is that when we do all of these things, believing in Him and with the intention of pleasing Him, then he also grants us reward in the chakra, and this this is his glory and His Majesty and His mercy and His forgiveness. We ask

00:06:10--> 00:06:21

Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to do that which is pleasing to Him and to save us from doing that which is not pleasing to Him. sal Allahu Allah Nabeel Karim Allah Allah He was ibH mine Pirata gamma Rahimi
