I ask Allah azza wa Jal to accept

00:00:03 --> 00:00:06

these moments of standing from us and lighten

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

by that our standing on the day of

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

judgment. I ask Allah to write for us

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

in these moments His infinite favor.

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

And hearts that are awake and continue to

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

get sharper in their insight,

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

Sharpen our spiritual insight for us in a

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

way that would deliver us to His forgiveness

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

and His pleasure

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

at the end of our lives' journeys.

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

I want to mention 4 things quickly.

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

The first of them is that the prophet

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

sallallahu

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

alaihi wasallam when he spoke about the eclipse

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

he

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

said, If you see any of that, meaning

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

the sun or the moon eclipsing,

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

then scramble to prayer.

00:00:50 --> 00:00:51

Means like flee, run.

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

To prayer salah and du'a and supplication invoking

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

Allah azza wa Jal, humbling yourself in pleading

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

with him.

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

And he said, zikr and continue remembering Allah

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

the words of remembrance. SubhanAllah.

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

The

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

recitation of the Quran. And he said, sadaqa

00:01:12 --> 00:01:13

and give in charity.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

And he said they said,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

The sahaba said, and we used to be

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

instructed during the eclipses to,

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

look towards emancipating slaves. Free a slave if

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

you can. That's like a major donation. Right.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

And istighfar and the seeking of forgiveness.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

Seeking of forgiveness. Seeking of forgiveness.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

And so I begin with that

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

to highlight

00:01:38 --> 00:01:41

that the eclipse will be ongoing as is,

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

forecasted for about another hour or so. And

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

it was not intended that it have to

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

be entirely spent in prayer

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

but he did say, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

do these things salah and dua and wicked

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

and charity and freeing slaves and istighfar.

00:01:57 --> 00:01:58

He said

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

until it it clears what has befallen you.

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

So it is supposed to be consumed

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

or subsumed in these acts of devotion one

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

for another. So try to have a share

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

of as many of these as possible

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

before this remaining hour is

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

out. The second, the context

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

in which it took place during the time

00:02:18 --> 00:02:20

of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. It's

00:02:20 --> 00:02:23

a highly authentic hadith in Bukhari and Muslim

00:02:23 --> 00:02:24

and elsewhere,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

where the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

son Ibrahim had died. He had a 2

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

year old son named Ibrahim radhiallahu anhu who

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

had passed away

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

at 2.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

And on the day that he passed away,

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

a solar eclipse took place. The sahab was,

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

At the same time it coincided with the

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

death of Ibrahim.

00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

And so the people said

00:02:51 --> 00:02:53

that this eclipse was due to the death

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

of Ibrahim.

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

The death of the prophet's son. The skies

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

are darkened

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

because the son of the messenger of God

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

has passed away. Right. Because that was the

00:03:03 --> 00:03:06

standing myth. The standing superstition or myth was

00:03:06 --> 00:03:07

that

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

a great man is born today, that's why

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

there's an eclipse. Or a great man has

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

died today, that's why there's an eclipse.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

And so He sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

despite the fact that

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

he was grieving his death

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

the death of his son,

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

he went out and ascended the altar or

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

the pulpit, the mimbar,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

And he said to the people, oh people,

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

The sun and the moon are strictly two

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

signs of god.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:37

2 of his great signs. Signs of his

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

power.

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

They don't eclipse

00:03:45 --> 00:03:47

due to the death of any person or

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

the birth of any person.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

And so if you see them,

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

then rush to the prayer and rush to

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

charity and rush to freeing slaves and rush

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

to

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

all that I explained to you. And you

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

know

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

you always have to stop and say,

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

this is of the greatest proofs of his

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

prophethood

00:04:08 --> 00:04:10

Like if if you

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

are in it for self promotion, if you're

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

putting out this project about, like, everyone listen

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

to me, I'm god's final messenger,

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

this is extremely inconvenient.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

This is extremely convenient as a credibility booster.

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

It's perfect.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

The timing was like, it's a jackpot.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:29

And he didn't even have to say it.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

People went and said it. That's how obvious

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

it seemed to be, the connection.

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

And he was he he could've just let

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

them be. Not only did he not say

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

it

00:04:38 --> 00:04:40

and despite the fact that he was hurting

00:04:40 --> 00:04:41

so much from the lost of Ibrahim and

00:04:41 --> 00:04:44

he said, the eye tears and the heartaches

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

but we only say that which pleases our

00:04:45 --> 00:04:46

lord.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

We belong to Allah and to him is

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

our return and it saddens us so much

00:04:50 --> 00:04:52

to be separated from you, Ibrahim. He said

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

all of these things. Yet in the middle

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

of that,

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

he still made it a point to step

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

out and say, this has nothing to do

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

with me or my son.

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

I don't call to myself. I call to

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

Allah And

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

so this is of the greatest proofs of

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

his integrity and his

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

truthfulness as a prophet.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

That was the second.

00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

The third thing I wanted to say is

00:05:13 --> 00:05:16

that this is above and before all a

00:05:16 --> 00:05:19

sign of Allah's power that he wants us

00:05:19 --> 00:05:21

to recognize and behold.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:23

That's what it is. They are signs of

00:05:23 --> 00:05:26

Allah to signal for us, to awaken within

00:05:26 --> 00:05:27

us

00:05:27 --> 00:05:28

recognition of his power.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

You know,

00:05:31 --> 00:05:32

the the fact that Allah

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

can make it go dark

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

during the daytime.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:38

Yes.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:40

The change of routine.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

This is of the greatest things to revive

00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

your faith is to not become a victim

00:05:44 --> 00:05:47

of mundanity, to be a victim of routine.

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

It's daytime means lights out.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:51

Lights on, not lights out. Lights are on.

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

No. The daytime can be dark.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

There will be actually an end to all

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

routines.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

And the one who did this, what you

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

can step outside in 5 minutes inshallah and

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

behold,

00:06:03 --> 00:06:06

safely what you will behold, he will end

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

all routines

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

and he can and will bring about an

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

even greater change of routine.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:15

Not only will the sun be darkened or

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

covered,

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

the sun will rise from a whole other

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

direction one day.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

The famous hadith of Abu Dharr, do you

00:06:22 --> 00:06:23

know where the sun went? He said, Allah

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

and his messenger know best.

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

Like you know, I know where the sun

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

went. The sun set. But he knows the

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

prophet alaihis salatu wasalam is trying to stir

00:06:30 --> 00:06:32

in him something very important.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

Unparalleled really in its importance

00:06:35 --> 00:06:38

which is our world view. You know the

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

We speak about our belief.

00:06:40 --> 00:06:42

The belief in the heart. The belief is

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

not a theory. It is the way you're

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

supposed to view the world.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:47

This is why Allah

00:06:48 --> 00:06:48

says,

00:06:50 --> 00:06:51

It is not really the eyes that go

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

blind. That's not the point. That's not the

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54

real problem.

00:06:54 --> 00:06:55

But

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

it is our viewpoint, the heart. It is

00:06:58 --> 00:06:59

the hearts that go blind. The hearts within

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

the the chests. And so he wanted Abu

00:07:02 --> 00:07:02

Zar

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

to keep it clear in his head, in

00:07:05 --> 00:07:06

his heart, in his world view. Where did

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

the sun go?

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

He said, Allah and his messenger no best.

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

He caught it. That, oh, you want to

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

show me something. Remind me of something. He

00:07:13 --> 00:07:15

said, it went to prostrate under the throne

00:07:15 --> 00:07:16

of Allah

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

Of course, in a manner This

00:07:20 --> 00:07:21

is not something you have to sit there

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

and wonder like, Wait a minute. How if

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

the earth is not flat? And the sahaba

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

are unanimously agreed that the earth was spherical,

00:07:27 --> 00:07:29

by the way. Ibn Hazmih reports this. Ibn

00:07:29 --> 00:07:31

Hazmih they all knew it, but they knew

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

better to than to say how does that

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

work exactly? That it went under God's throne

00:07:34 --> 00:07:36

when it's always out somewhere. Right.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:39

So he said to them, it went to

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

prostrate under Allah's throne.

00:07:41 --> 00:07:44

Meaning it's submitting to his power. Right. Submitting.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

It says go, he goes.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:48

He says, and it seeks permission to rise

00:07:48 --> 00:07:51

again from the east and Allah permits

00:07:51 --> 00:07:54

it until one day break of routine.

00:07:54 --> 00:07:56

Until one day it will seek

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

permission to rise and Allah will not permit

00:08:00 --> 00:08:02

it and say to it go back where

00:08:02 --> 00:08:03

you set.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

Go back where you came from and that

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

is the day the sun will rise from

00:08:07 --> 00:08:09

the west. That will be the end of

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

routine. The end of time as we know

00:08:10 --> 00:08:11

it.

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

And so this is important. You know some

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

people that are

00:08:16 --> 00:08:19

religious skeptics, skeptics of religion. People that unfortunately

00:08:19 --> 00:08:21

in this realm are are blind to just

00:08:21 --> 00:08:23

how biased they are, and they think a

00:08:23 --> 00:08:24

little bit too highly of their of their

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

opinions.

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

They say the reason why the Muslims pray

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

an eclipse prayer

00:08:31 --> 00:08:32

is because, you know, back in the desert

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

back in the desert,

00:08:35 --> 00:08:37

primitive backward society, they don't know when the

00:08:37 --> 00:08:40

eclipse is gonna happen. So it catches them

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

off guard.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:42

And so they have to scramble to the

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

prayer, oh my god, the day of judgement

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

is starting. Absolutely not. That's not the reason.

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

That's a very short sighted analysis.

00:08:50 --> 00:08:53

It is actually A better one is I

00:08:53 --> 00:08:54

know when the eclipse is gonna happen. They

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

knew by the way. So many people were

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

able to calculate even in pre modern times.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:00

The same way I know when my harvest

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

is gonna happen. But when I actually see

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

them,

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

as we discussed yesterday, right, you see the

00:09:05 --> 00:09:08

plant finally stand on its own two legs

00:09:08 --> 00:09:11

figuratively. Right. When you see the harvest ready,

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

even though you know it's gonna happen in

00:09:13 --> 00:09:15

September, October. But when you see it,

00:09:16 --> 00:09:19

the gratitude is just different. You know pregnancy

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

is 9 months, but when you just see

00:09:21 --> 00:09:22

the baby, it's different.

00:09:23 --> 00:09:26

Yes. That is the idea. Allah a zawajal

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

does not want us to see one of

00:09:28 --> 00:09:29

these signs

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

and not interact with it.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:33

A sign of his great power.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

It is only by his power that it's

00:09:36 --> 00:09:37

actually daytime right now.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

The snap in routine does that. And that

00:09:41 --> 00:09:42

is my final,

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

you know, actually nobody move. I promise. Give

00:09:44 --> 00:09:47

me 2 minutes. No. I'll be out in

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

10 seconds

00:09:48 --> 00:09:50

or 2 seconds, but give me 2 minutes.

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52

So I've actually been staring at this and

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

reflecting on it for, like, a week.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

No. No. I'm not, like, that, sharp. I

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

wish I was. What I've been thinking, should

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

I share this with you? Because we all

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

eat dates. Right? We're all eating dates in

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

Ramadan.

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

Some of you may or may not know,

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

the date is actually referenced in so many

00:10:09 --> 00:10:11

different places in the Quran, right. Cause it's

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

so familiar also to sort of the Madinan

00:10:13 --> 00:10:14

culture. Right?

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

At least four times that I can recall.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:19

So first of all there's the date itself.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

There's a there's a point here. I promise.

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

Allah

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

says,

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

Allah is the one that splits open the

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

dates and the seeds.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

He wants you to see this

00:10:35 --> 00:10:38

rock solid piece of junk to people's eyes

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

as a source of life by Allah's power.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:44

He's calling you to be intimately familiar with

00:10:44 --> 00:10:47

him through the mundane, through the routine. So

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

that's one. The other one is Does anyone

00:10:49 --> 00:10:50

know what this is called?

00:10:51 --> 00:10:52

I don't even know if you guys are

00:10:52 --> 00:10:53

going to be able to see it.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:55

See this filmy stuff?

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

Where is he?

00:11:00 --> 00:11:02

Okay. Don't answer the next 2. Okay?

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

You guys

00:11:04 --> 00:11:05

can can you see it?

00:11:06 --> 00:11:08

Good. I hope you can't see it so

00:11:08 --> 00:11:09

that next time you grab a date, you

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

look for

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

it. There is this film me thing that

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

they say basically, subhanAllah, from the the great

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

wisdom of Allah

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

that separates the sweetness of the dates from

00:11:18 --> 00:11:20

the bitterness of the pits. Right. It's like

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

an insulation around the pits.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

Allah

00:11:23 --> 00:11:25

even speaks about this in the Quran. And

00:11:25 --> 00:11:26

he says,

00:11:28 --> 00:11:29

All these others

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

beings out there in life,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:34

right, the false gods, your bank account, whatever.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

Right. Everything out there in life, they don't

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

own this.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

Let me let me for dramatic effect, let

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

me drop it for you.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:42

They don't own this.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:45

Wait for it.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

Does anyone know what this is called? Shehkhutur

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

Khaled. We're not friends if you answer.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

On the inside where the pit cleaves, there's

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

this. This tiny tiny thread.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:58

Look for it at iftar today.

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

Okay.

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

This is called

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

a fateel.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:05

Fateel or fateel is a string. Fateel is

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

a tiny string.

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

Allah

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

says,

00:12:11 --> 00:12:14

I promise you even this amount I won't

00:12:14 --> 00:12:15

wrong you.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

This amount, I'm gonna reward you for. I'm

00:12:17 --> 00:12:19

gonna pull out those forgotten good deeds you

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

did

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

and those very subtle wrongdoings that happened to

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

you, And I promise you I'll make it

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

all worth your while.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

He wants you to look at this and

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

say remind you of Allah's world view.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:34

Let me put down my props.

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

There's one more.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:37

You see where the pit cleaves

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

I need to finish in a minute. You

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

see where the pit cleaves?

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

So there's a round side and where it

00:12:43 --> 00:12:44

folds in on itself.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

If you turn it the opposite of that,

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

behind every single date pit there is a

00:12:51 --> 00:12:52

tiny dot.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

A dot. It's like a peck in the

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

date pit. Look for it.

00:12:57 --> 00:12:59

This is called a nakir.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

Nakra is like

00:13:01 --> 00:13:02

a jab or a peck or a tiny

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

hole

00:13:03 --> 00:13:04

or an indent.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:05

The nakeer

00:13:06 --> 00:13:09

means a tiny, tiny indent. Allah says everyone

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

else,

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

They cannot

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

poke anyone

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

at all

00:13:16 --> 00:13:17

without Allah

00:13:17 --> 00:13:18

consent.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

So look at He's calling your attention to

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

the mundane. This is the idea. You You

00:13:22 --> 00:13:23

know, we've been talking about the parables of

00:13:23 --> 00:13:26

the Quran all month. Right? In Taraweeh. We're

00:13:26 --> 00:13:28

saying these are supposed to be prescription lenses

00:13:28 --> 00:13:29

for us. Allah

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

says in the Quran Capture this brothers and

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

sisters. He says in the Quran,

00:13:38 --> 00:13:41

Allah does not shy away from striking an

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

example out of a mosquito.

00:13:44 --> 00:13:46

Date pit, mosquito, fly.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:47

Well at the end of the day, the

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

creation is just a creation. They're all the

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

same size really, combined compared

00:13:51 --> 00:13:52

to Allah because

00:13:53 --> 00:13:54

people are saying, why is the Quran keep

00:13:54 --> 00:13:55

talking about spider webs? The Quran is talking

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

about flies. Quran is talking about mosquitoes. Quran

00:13:57 --> 00:13:59

is talking about dates and date pits and

00:13:59 --> 00:14:00

sort of like filmy,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

covers of the date pits. Allah is saying

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

those are actually treasures for you. And so

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

I leave you with that message brothers and

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

sisters. This is a world view.

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

How we behave in the likes of these

00:14:12 --> 00:14:15

events and what we draw from the pages

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

of the Quran

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

is gonna make all of the difference.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:21

And so if you're going to safely take

00:14:21 --> 00:14:22

a look,

00:14:23 --> 00:14:25

yes, we all worried about some damage, some

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

blindness that could happen to the eyes, but

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

the ultimate objective is from

00:14:31 --> 00:14:33

our duty, our desire

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

to make sure our hearts don't become blind.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:37

They don't become materialistic.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:38

They don't become

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

blurry in their belief in the unseen. May

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

Allah azza wa jal with these events and

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

our devotion for this next hour, renew our

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

faith with it and help us behold his

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

his power in a way that would transform

00:14:49 --> 00:14:50

us in better and better ways.
