We are in the final,

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

week of Ramadan,

00:00:21 --> 00:00:23

and I want to remind myself and you

00:00:24 --> 00:00:26

about the divine origin of our religion.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:28

1458

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

years ago, a window opened in the heavens,

00:00:32 --> 00:00:34

and God spoke to man. Allah

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

sent his first

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

revelation to his beloved messenger,

00:00:42 --> 00:00:45

Muhammad through his messenger, Jibril Alaihi Salam.

00:00:45 --> 00:00:47

This was the spoken word.

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

Allah

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50

spoke to

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

in a way that suits his majesty and

00:00:53 --> 00:00:54

grace. And

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

spoke to

00:00:57 --> 00:00:57

Muhammad

00:00:59 --> 00:01:00

This was not the first time that this

00:01:00 --> 00:01:01

had happened,

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

but it was to be the last.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

That initiative of reestablishing

00:01:06 --> 00:01:07

the direct connection

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

between the creator and his creatures,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

Between God and humans. Between Allah

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

and you and I

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

is Islam.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

Islam is for all human beings, irrespective

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

of ethnicity

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

and color and race or origin.

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

Those who accept

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

this connection and benefit from it are called

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

Muslim.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:35

The first words

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

revealed were read in the name of your

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

Rab who created everything.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

The word read has many meanings.

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

It means to read as in reading a

00:01:52 --> 00:01:52

book.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

It means to recite something which is written.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

It also means to read the signs you

00:02:01 --> 00:02:02

see around

00:02:02 --> 00:02:04

you and understand what they mean.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:09

Sometimes there are expressions on the face of

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

your beloved,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

which tell you without a single word being

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

spoken what is happening in their heart

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

if you can read them.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

And if you cannot read them, then you

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

pay the price.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23

Sometimes, gestures,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:25

tone of voice, movements,

00:02:26 --> 00:02:26

and demeanor

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

tell those who can read them far more

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

and far more truthfully,

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

the real story.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

And that's why they say

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

the body does not lie.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:40

The command reed was given to our beloved

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

prophet Muhammad.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

This was to encourage him and all those

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

who were to hear that command from him

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

to read the signs of the creator in

00:02:52 --> 00:02:52

his creation.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

To read the signs of Allah

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

in the Kayranats.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:00

And to marvel at his power, his mercy,

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

his wisdom,

00:03:01 --> 00:03:03

and accept him as the only one worthy

00:03:03 --> 00:03:04

of worship.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

When we see the signs of Allah,

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

we love him and we obey him. Subhanahu

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

Wa Ta'ala, said about

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

that.

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

We will show them our signs in the

00:03:31 --> 00:03:31

universe

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

and within themselves until it becomes clear to

00:03:34 --> 00:03:37

them that this Quran is the truth.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

Is it not enough

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

that your rub

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

is a witness

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

over all things?

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

Imagine, for example, let us see what are

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

the some of the signs

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

that we

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

see, but we don't read.

00:03:56 --> 00:03:57

Imagine a blood didn't clot.

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

Hemophiliacs

00:03:59 --> 00:04:02

don't need to imagine it. Imagine if our

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

hair

00:04:03 --> 00:04:04

had nerves

00:04:04 --> 00:04:05

and nerve endings.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:07

You would need to go on to general

00:04:07 --> 00:04:08

anesthesia

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

to get a haircut.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

Likewise for nails.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

Cut a nail a little more deeply, and

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

you will know what I mean.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:20

Imagine veins without venous nonreturned

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

bulbs.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:23

Your blood would puddle

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

in your ankles and your feet,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

and your heart and brain would be starved

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

of oxygen.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

Oxygenated

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

and unoxygenated

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

blood would mix.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

Imagine if rain and snow

00:04:35 --> 00:04:38

didn't descend in single drops and flakes,

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

but instead,

00:04:40 --> 00:04:43

it all came down in one mass.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:47

Hanley, for example,

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

this town has an area of

00:04:51 --> 00:04:51

24.7

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

square miles, say 25 square miles.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:57

That is 16,000 acres.

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

1 inch of rain per acre weighs a

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

113

00:05:01 --> 00:05:02

tons.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

In 2023,

00:05:05 --> 00:05:07

Hadley received received 50 inches of rain and

00:05:07 --> 00:05:08

snow precipitation

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

that weighed 90,000,000,400,000

00:05:13 --> 00:05:13

tons.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

This fell from an average height of 15,000

00:05:16 --> 00:05:17

feet.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:20

Imagine that this entire amount of precipitation,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:21

90,400,000

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

tons,

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

fell in one mass.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:30

That would be like a tidal wave

00:05:30 --> 00:05:31

hitting you from

00:05:32 --> 00:05:32

above,

00:05:33 --> 00:05:34

15,000 feet above.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

There would be a lake

00:05:37 --> 00:05:40

of 25 square miles here

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

and no hardly.

00:05:42 --> 00:05:43

But Allah

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

sends it down

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

drop by drop, flake by flake

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

as a sign of his mercy.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

Imagine if you were given total control of

00:05:53 --> 00:05:56

all bodily functions, meaning that they would function

00:05:57 --> 00:05:58

on command only.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

That means you could never sleep, or your

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

heart, your digestive system, your vascular system, your

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

brain function, and so on would stop would

00:06:05 --> 00:06:06

shut down.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

Imagine that Allah

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

gave you everything you asked for.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

Now you may think that would be wonderful,

00:06:14 --> 00:06:17

but from my vantage point of being perhaps

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18

40 years ahead of most of you,

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

I can tell you that I distinctly remember

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

some things that I begged and pleaded with

00:06:23 --> 00:06:24

Allah for.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

But in his wisdom and in his mercy,

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

he did not give them to me.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

Today, I thank him profusely for not granting

00:06:31 --> 00:06:32

me

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

that Dua or those Dua's

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

while still rewarding me for making the Dua

00:06:37 --> 00:06:40

because Dua is Ibadat, and it is rewarded.

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

And that is why Allah

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

reminded us to read the signs in creation.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

In Surah Al Anbarah, Allah

00:07:20 --> 00:07:20

Allah

00:07:21 --> 00:07:22

said, indeed,

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

in the creation of the heavens and the

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

earth

00:07:25 --> 00:07:27

and the alternation of the night and the

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

day of the night,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

there are signs

00:07:29 --> 00:07:32

for people of reason, people of wisdom, people

00:07:32 --> 00:07:33

of understanding, people of intelligence.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:37

Who are these people? Allah defined them. He

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

said they are those who remember Allah,

00:07:39 --> 00:07:41

who recognize their creator, who know their creator,

00:07:41 --> 00:07:43

who recognize him, and they remember Allah,

00:07:44 --> 00:07:46

standing, sitting, and lying on their sides.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

And they reflect on the creation of the

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

heavens and the earth.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

And they make dua and they say, our

00:07:53 --> 00:07:56

rabbi have not created all of this without

00:07:56 --> 00:07:56

purpose.

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

This is not an accident. This is that

00:07:59 --> 00:08:01

this didn't just happen like that without any

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

reason, without any intelligent

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

creator behind it. You

00:08:06 --> 00:08:06

did not create

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

all of this without purpose.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

Glory be to you.

00:08:11 --> 00:08:13

Protect us from the punishment of the fire.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

I'm a wildlife photographer, and I spend a

00:08:18 --> 00:08:19

lot of time in the bush.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

To read signs

00:08:23 --> 00:08:23

is literally

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

a matter of life and death for me.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:29

When I'm walking in the African field or

00:08:29 --> 00:08:30

in the in the Indian forest,

00:08:33 --> 00:08:35

And if I see lion or tiger tracks,

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

I can read them, and I can see

00:08:38 --> 00:08:39

which direction

00:08:39 --> 00:08:40

they're going

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

in, whether the pugmarks

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

are of a male or a female,

00:08:45 --> 00:08:47

whether the animal is walking slowly or running,

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

also including whether it is hungry or not,

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

the the depth of the impression of the

00:08:54 --> 00:08:55

footprint.

00:08:56 --> 00:08:58

I can read all of

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

this, or I can tell myself that these

00:09:02 --> 00:09:03

are not really

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

marks of lions or tigers,

00:09:06 --> 00:09:08

and they don't indicate the presence of a

00:09:08 --> 00:09:09

lion or a tiger down the road,

00:09:10 --> 00:09:12

but these are accidental creations of a chance

00:09:12 --> 00:09:13

wind.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

However I choose to interpret the signs, it

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

won't change the fact that I'm about to

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

walk into a lion or a tiger.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:23

What will change

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

is whether I'm prepared for that or not.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:30

What will change is whether I will be

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

able to get a good photograph

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

or the dragon makes a kill.

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

The land

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

has dinner.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

To read signs is important because a sign

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

is not merely about color or symbol or

00:09:44 --> 00:09:45

shape.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:47

A sign has meaning.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

It points to a certain direction,

00:09:52 --> 00:09:53

and it warns

00:09:53 --> 00:09:54

us about consequences.

00:09:56 --> 00:09:58

We read signs every day when we drive.

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

And if we fail to read the sign

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

or misread it,

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

there are consequences,

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

some very serious

00:10:08 --> 00:10:10

that we will have to bear.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:14

Why then don't we see this with respect

00:10:14 --> 00:10:15

to our creator?

00:10:17 --> 00:10:20

It is to awaken our connection with Allah

00:10:20 --> 00:10:21

the glorious and magnificent,

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

our creator, protector,

00:10:24 --> 00:10:25

sustainer, provider,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

to whom we will all return

00:10:29 --> 00:10:30

that Allah

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31

sends

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

Ramadan. About this month of fasting, he said,

00:10:49 --> 00:10:52

as it was prescribed for those before you

00:10:52 --> 00:10:55

so that perhaps you may become mindful of

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

Allah

00:10:58 --> 00:10:59

Taqwa

00:10:59 --> 00:11:00

is

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

that blessed

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

state

00:11:05 --> 00:11:06

where a person

00:11:07 --> 00:11:10

is always conscious of his or her connection

00:11:10 --> 00:11:10

with Allah,

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

and revels in that feeling

00:11:14 --> 00:11:16

and ensures that they never do anything that

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

can dull the strength of that connection or

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19

sever it.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

Tava produces tranquility

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

and knowing

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

that the one in charge

00:11:31 --> 00:11:32

is the one

00:11:33 --> 00:11:34

who can do everything

00:11:35 --> 00:11:35

and

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

who loves me.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

You may have a situation in life where

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

there is somebody who loves you very much,

00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

but they're helpless.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

They can't do anything for you. On the

00:11:49 --> 00:11:52

contrary, you might have somebody who's very powerful,

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

but who doesn't care a hoot about you.

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

But here is the situation with Allah

00:12:00 --> 00:12:01

where he loves us

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

more than

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

our mothers could possibly love us.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:08

And

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

he also has the power to do absolutely

00:12:11 --> 00:12:11

anything

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

without any reservation,

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

without any borders, without any,

00:12:17 --> 00:12:17

conditions.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

How do you reciprocate this love? Through obedience.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

Obedience is the way to express

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27

and reciprocate

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29

our love for Allah

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

and fasting

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

teaches us this lesson.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:44

We obey because we know

00:12:44 --> 00:12:46

he loves us and wants the best for

00:12:46 --> 00:12:49

us. And he knows what that is far

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

better than we ever can.

00:12:52 --> 00:12:53

So we do what he commands.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

He do we do whatever he commands us

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

to do, and we stay away from whatever

00:12:58 --> 00:13:00

he commands us to stay away from.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:04

We know that he needs nothing, and nothing

00:13:04 --> 00:13:07

can benefit or harm him. So when he

00:13:07 --> 00:13:09

shows us a way of life, we are

00:13:09 --> 00:13:10

honored to live it.

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

On the authority of the great companion of

00:13:13 --> 00:13:14

Rasool Allah,

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

Abu Dharm Fari Radiallahu Alaihi Wasallam,

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

who quoted from his Rabb, Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:13:24 --> 00:13:24

Ta'ala

00:13:40 --> 00:13:43

stray, stray except those whom I have guided,

00:13:43 --> 00:13:45

so seek guidance from me, and I will

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

guide you. Oh, my slaves, all of you

00:13:47 --> 00:13:50

are hungry except those whom I have fed,

00:13:50 --> 00:13:52

So seek food from me, and I will

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53

feed you.

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

For my slaves, all of you are naked,

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

except those who I have clothed. So seek

00:13:58 --> 00:14:00

clothing from me, and I will clothe you.

00:14:00 --> 00:14:02

Oh, my slaves, you commit sins

00:14:03 --> 00:14:04

by day and by night, and I forgive

00:14:04 --> 00:14:06

all sins, so seek forgiveness

00:14:08 --> 00:14:08

from me, and I will forgive you. For

00:14:08 --> 00:14:10

my slaves, you can either harm me nor

00:14:10 --> 00:14:12

benefit me. For my slaves, if the first

00:14:12 --> 00:14:14

of you and the last of you and

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

the humans of you and the jinn of

00:14:15 --> 00:14:18

you were all as pious as the most

00:14:18 --> 00:14:20

pious heart of any individual among you, then

00:14:20 --> 00:14:23

this would not increase my kingdom by an

00:14:23 --> 00:14:23

iota.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

Oh, my slaves, if the first of you

00:14:27 --> 00:14:29

and the last of you and the humans

00:14:29 --> 00:14:30

of you and the jinn of you were

00:14:30 --> 00:14:33

all as wicked as the most wicked heart

00:14:33 --> 00:14:36

of any individual amongst you, then this will

00:14:36 --> 00:14:39

not decrease my kingdom and iota.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

Oh, my slaves, if the first of you

00:14:41 --> 00:14:43

and the last of you, and the humans

00:14:43 --> 00:14:44

of you and the jinns of you were

00:14:44 --> 00:14:47

all to stand together in one place and

00:14:47 --> 00:14:48

ask me

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

every single thing you can imagine, and I

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

were to give everyone whatever he requested

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

instantly in that moment,

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

then that would not decrease what I

00:14:59 --> 00:15:02

possess, except what is decreased of the ocean

00:15:02 --> 00:15:05

when a needle is dipped in it.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

For my slaves, it is but your deeds

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

that I account for you and then recompense

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

you for.

00:15:11 --> 00:15:14

So he who finds good, let him praise

00:15:14 --> 00:15:17

Allah's and he who finds other than that,

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

let him blame no one but himself.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:22

And this this is a Muslim. What I

00:15:22 --> 00:15:24

have said to you in English is the

00:15:24 --> 00:15:25

interpretation of that, and I have said,

00:15:26 --> 00:15:28

I have added some

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

a little bit of explanation in the hadith.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

So what I'm quoting is not the exact

00:15:33 --> 00:15:35

word of the hadith. The exact word of

00:15:35 --> 00:15:36

the Hadith is in Arabic.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:39

This is Allah.

00:15:41 --> 00:15:43

This is Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:48

Ramadan is the boot camp

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

to reboot our lives

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

and transform them and place them on the

00:15:53 --> 00:15:54

highway to success.

00:15:55 --> 00:15:58

In Ramadan, we stay away during the hours

00:15:58 --> 00:15:59

of daylight

00:15:59 --> 00:16:02

even from things that are normally permitted,

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

only to emphasize for ourselves the importance

00:16:05 --> 00:16:08

of staying away from all that is prohibited

00:16:08 --> 00:16:09

throughout our lives.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:12

Ramadan shows us that we can do it

00:16:12 --> 00:16:13

if we wish.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:16

If we wish to please the one to

00:16:16 --> 00:16:17

whom we owe everything

00:16:18 --> 00:16:20

and who we hope to meet one day

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

in a state when he is pleased with

00:16:22 --> 00:16:22

us.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

And who is that?

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

He is the one who said about himself,

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

who introduced himself.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:30

And he said,

00:16:33 --> 00:16:34

Allahu Allah ilaha

00:16:37 --> 00:16:37

illa

00:18:20 --> 00:18:22

The meaning of what I decided in the

00:18:22 --> 00:18:22

first

00:18:23 --> 00:18:24

passage was from Surat Al Makkara,

00:18:25 --> 00:18:26

the famous Ayah,

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

the greatest Ayah of the Quran, which is

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

called Ayat Al Kursi.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:33

Allah,

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

there's no god worthy of worship except him.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

The ever living,

00:18:38 --> 00:18:39

all sustaining.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:43

Neither drowsiness nor sleep overtakes him. To him

00:18:43 --> 00:18:45

belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

is in the earth.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:49

Who could possibly intercede with him without his

00:18:49 --> 00:18:49

permission?

00:18:50 --> 00:18:52

He fully knows what is ahead of them

00:18:52 --> 00:18:54

and what is behind them, but no one

00:18:54 --> 00:18:56

can grasp any of his knowledge

00:18:56 --> 00:18:59

except what he wills to reveal.

00:19:00 --> 00:19:01

His seat

00:19:01 --> 00:19:03

encompasses the heavens and the earth,

00:19:04 --> 00:19:05

and the preservation of both

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

does not tie him.

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

For he is the most high, the great.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:17

The second passage was Suraj al Hashem, the

00:19:17 --> 00:19:18

last duet.

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

He is Allah.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:22

There is no god worthy of worship except

00:19:22 --> 00:19:23

him.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:26

Noah of the seen and the unseen.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

Noah of the perceivable and the unperceivable.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

He is the most compassionate,

00:19:31 --> 00:19:32

most merciful.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:33

He is Allah.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:37

There is no god except him. The king,

00:19:37 --> 00:19:38

the most

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

holy, the all perfect,

00:19:40 --> 00:19:41

the source of serenity,

00:19:41 --> 00:19:42

the watcher

00:19:43 --> 00:19:43

of all,

00:19:44 --> 00:19:44

the almighty,

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

the supreme in might, the majestic.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

Glorified is Allah

00:19:50 --> 00:19:50

for above

00:19:51 --> 00:19:53

far above all that they associate with him

00:19:53 --> 00:19:54

in

00:19:55 --> 00:19:56

And the last was,

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

which is considered considered to be 1 third

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

of the Quran.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

When Allah said, say, oh, Muhammad

00:20:03 --> 00:20:04

he is Allah,

00:20:05 --> 00:20:05

1

00:20:06 --> 00:20:06

and indivisible.

00:20:07 --> 00:20:08

Allah,

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

the sustainer,

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11

needed

00:20:11 --> 00:20:14

by all, but he needs none of them.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:15

He has never had offspring

00:20:16 --> 00:20:18

nor was he born, and there is none

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

comparable

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

to him.

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

This is Allah

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23

who we worship.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:25

This is Allah

00:20:25 --> 00:20:28

who we love above all else.
