my salon so you didn't do as well as you want to do yet the muscle later on and sit in the rocking. Honestly, I'm gonna do as well Jean whether the Yeti came about to say no but I am for now and I mean in hamidou Majeed we praise Allah Almighty we send prayers and blessings upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his noble family, righteous companions and all those that follow them, until the day of judgment.
Glory be to You, Oh Allah, no knowledge have we accept that when you have taught us Indeed you are beyond knowing beyond wise? We ask Allah subhanaw taala as he has gathered us here today, to bring us together in the highest of paradise with the Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we asked him to accept from us and to make our deeds sincere, and to open our hearts and our brains to the normal Quran and make it an intercessor for us. On the day of judgment in sha Allah, we continue brothers and sisters will be tough to steward and work.
we left off last, we left off last speaking about the verse that were Allah subhanaw taala told us how he made the earth being subservient to us that he has subjected the earth to us and everything in it. And we mentioned that there is another verse was not homework by the way. It was right.
You found it. You didn't find the words.
jatiya Look at the end of the page on the bottom.
So that the jatiya
Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Al jatiya.
Yes, watercolor fake, it is Allah who subjected to you the sea so that ships may sail upon it by His Command, and that you may seek of His Bounty, and perhaps you will be grateful, and he is subjected to whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, everything, all from him.
Indeed, in that science for people who give up. And there's another verse also
saw that Brahim
sort of speaking about the ships and how he subjected, the the night and the day, and the sun and the moon and the rivers, and he names them one by one, everything has been subjected to us. And this is by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, and his wisdom and so that you may understand your place in this universe. You are the most important component of this universe, my dear brothers and sisters, and everything has been created and subjective for you. Well, I'm Karana of any Adam, you are the ones, the children of Adam, you are the ones that Allah subhanaw taala has honored.
But of course, this honor, is religion related. It is piety related, because we then honor or dishonor ourself. Otherwise, in general, you have been you're also born in the state of fitna in the purest state,
and therefore you are honored.
You then do what you want you either to continue to honor yourself, by increasing your piety or you dishonor yourself by disbelief and my sins, and so on.
Therefore, Allah subhanaw taala subjected the earth to us, and we can speak on and on about how this earth has indeed been made subject to us. And our brother reminded me last time Baraka Luffy, that one of the beautiful parts of the way that Allah azza wa jal has subjected the earth is how the Earth is the only one that is capable of supporting life.
And that Allah subhanaw taala. And this is how we come to understand, because maybe at first thought, if someone ignorant says, Well, what's so special about that, I mean, hundreds of planets and hundreds of stars and so on. Well, yeah, there are but there is no life on any of them. At least as far as we know. People are looking for light for extraterrestrial life, but they haven't found it yet. And they may never find it and up till now. And with all of the challenges, they are still claiming the only place capable of supporting life that we have found out up to now is this earth. Everything else is either too close to the sun, or too far from its sun and other
or solar systems have
other things and other obstacles, until now they have not found a place where there is life except on this earth. Isn't this also part of Allah subhanaw taala, subjecting this earth to you, and making it something and making it capable of supporting life and in every way, and we think some kind of welcome What's so difficult about supporting life, just the the, the presence of water itself. I mean, this is why the Scholars are jumping up and down, like popcorn that they found water on Mars, right, this Europa ocean or something, that, finally they found water, they're finding water and therefore, there must have been life. That in itself is amazing. SubhanAllah. So the earth
Allah subhanaw taala has subjected to, has made it capable of supporting all life.
And for so long, Subhan Allah, how much we abuse, the earth, how much we abuse our instruments. And pretty soon you have to throw your electrical instruments, your microwave, your telephone, your laptop, you abuse it enough, and eventually have to throw it in the trash. But this earth,
the trillions of people that are abusing it over and over and over, and it just keeps giving and giving by the will of Allah subhanaw taala I know the environmentalists would love this talk, you should have invited the environmentalists, too, to hear about the importance of the earth and taking care of the earth and, and not abusing this blessing that Allah subhanaw taala has given us an all in perfect and beautiful harmony.
And you only have to think about the system that Allah subhanaw taala has put on this earth,
the way you have the oceans, the water evaporates from the oceans, you then you have winds, which create clouds and the clouds, then
recycle that water back to you and onto your earth. So that it grows, your vegetation and your plants and your food and then you eat. And then eventually you throw that back to the earth. And that itself. Subhanallah is a fertilizer for the Earth, which again Subhanallah
helps to bring up the plants again, and over and over in a beautiful cycle that Allah Subhana Allah has ordained and decreed and subjected to me and you so let us treat it. Well. This is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. Indeed,
without too much exaggeration, Islam is heaven for the environmentalists for the Green Party, for the people who care about the Earth and the environment. And we can talk about it and there are Hadith that
mentioned this, Muslims are supposed to be the first people to take care of what is around them, and that which Allah has chosen, has subjected to them.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says the following?
Do you feel secure that He who holds authority in heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you? And suddenly it would sway?
Do you feel secure?
Do you feel secure that Allah subhanaw taala
will not shake this earth?
Do you feel secure, that you are walking on this earth? And that you will not one day fall because of its trembling? Or that you may be injured? Because of the trembling of the earth? Do you feel secure? If any of this? Do you feel secure, that this earth will not one day shake you and your whole building and your whole city and your whole country? If you feel secure, then there is a problem. Do not feel secure?
You say But
shouldn't I feel secure? Isn't Allah azza wa jal, the one who gave me that security? I say yes. But you never know when Allah subhanaw taala will test you in that security so that you ultimately understand the blessing of that security and of that comfort. And I swear by Allah we do not understand that security. And we take it for granted because the Earth has not shaken with us on it. Unless you have
perience something which is called an earthquake,
or something worse, or a very severe earthquake, the people who have experienced that know the blessing of being secure on this earth. My dear brothers and sisters, you say, Well, what is the proof for this? Why shouldn't we feel so secure? Because Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah
Allah como Castle, that the ones who are feeling secure of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala the only ones who feel that way? Are we losing people only.
Otherwise, a Muslim is always afraid that Allah subhanaw taala may decrease something else. And this is why Prophet Muhammad salallahu Salam, the leader of the pious and of those who feared Allah azza wa jal, he used to feel when he used to see natural Signs that may turn into natural disasters, and say, Thou shalt have the Allah told him that and spoke to him and said, O Messenger of Allah, how come when people see the clouds and the advent of rain, they are happy and they rejoice, and you are sad and fear overtakes you. And he reminded her of the saying, of the verses in surah Taha talking about how Allah azza wa jal destroyed the people of
the people the food right, the people of add water, the the people that Sedna, who
did to that when they saw
the rain and the clouds coming. They started rejoicing. We'll call her out.
But it was not rain. It was not something to rejoice about. It was the severe punishment of Allah subhanho wa taala. Look at how profitable Amazon seller is reminding her of the verses using the verse as proof for this. Didn't you read that verse?
So he reminds her, that at that time people rejoiced, but it was the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala. So Prophet Muhammad wa Salam is afraid of this. No, he knows. He knows that Allah azza wa jal has promised him as
he made dua for three things. And one of them is that Allah subhanaw taala destroy them completely.
And Allah azza wa jal answered his Dawa, except for one hidden answer, which we all know, right?
Enemies, being enemies between each other right, that enmity not be there in the Ummah between each other. He didn't answer him to this, it means there is enmity between us and this is one of the biggest problems that we have, that we are enemies of each other, though we are Muslims in the same ummah.
This, therefore, despite that Prophet Muhammad wa salam did not feel secure or comfortable at this time. And though he is the beloved of Allah subhanaw taala. So how can you and me feel secure, when we are sending as much as we are sending, and the only so far away, and the world at large, is only further and further away from Allah subhanaw taala and then we feel secure, that Allah azza wa jal will not check the brothers and sisters starts shaking with you, I claim, it is then that you will feel ultimately helpless. And that is when you will feel your ultimate subservience to Allah subhanaw taala. And that no matter how strong you are, or capable you are or how much technology you
have one shakes, all that is zero. It doesn't apply anymore, what technology will help you at that point?
Once the earth starts to shake, all your technology will shake with it. Because everything that is on the earth at that point is only subject to its security or in the opposite, it's shaking at that point, you can do nothing
but turn to Allah subhanaw taala Okay, on a practical level, you can go you can hide yourself, you can, you know, go under a table or something, move away from things that can break you can do all of that. But ultimately, you can do nothing but resort to Allah subhanaw taala and go back to him and make dua and cry to him, Oh Allah save us.
The earth is shaking, that that thing which we are all sitting on and comfortable on is shaking. It is trembling by the command of its Lord.
Do you feel secure, that he who is over the Heaven will not shake the earth while you on it? We should not my brothers and sisters, the one who knows Allah and His magnificence, will never feel comfortable of this and will fear that and will realize that this itself is a great blessing from Allah azza wa jal and this is why he says in surah number,
a man Johanna Makara.
And then Johanna
who is the one that he who is the one who has made the earth stability, a stable surface who made it Stiva Allah azza wa jal is the one who made it stable, if he did not make it stable, it will shake and as he says in the end of the I become an alpha in the year,
Allah azza wa jal if he wished, he will make it sick and he will.
In this case, we will discuss this word right. No matter what
we discussed it
meaning violent shaking and movement. Now, there is what is called
okay, how can it be a violent moving or shaking? Okay.
And some scholars mentioned as we mentioned, then sort of the two that it is circular motion. Allah azza wa jal is mentioning now that the Earth would shake and would move and violently while you are on it. If it wasn't for Allah azza wa jal who has stabilized it, if it wasn't for the mountains that he has placed as pegs. Right when Divina,
Allah azza wa jal has placed these mountains as pegs on the earth to stabilize the Earth. Otherwise, it would move move and it would shake because you all know that the Earth has several layers, right? And you have a moving land called
Love the crust.
Brother, the customers the top part that cracks and that's why it's called crust, the mantle. Right you have the mantle. And
you'll find that it is a liquid layer and it is a moving layer. And this is part of what creates the magnetism of the earth.
If you didn't have mountain stabilizing the crust above that moving layer, then the Earth itself would shake with you. There's the blessing of Allah Azza he is the one who made it subject to you, and He is the one who has stabilized it for you. And when he wishes, he shakes it for you. and wallah it is to shake our hearts back into fear and back into piety. So that maybe we will come back to Allah subhanaw taala and repent to Allah and realize the blessing that we are our problem is we take the blessings of Allah for granted brothers and sisters don't take the blessings of Allah for granted and thank Him for it before you lose it.
And if we do not thank him for it when we have it. It is a blessing when he takes it from you because that might be the only thing that will make you realize its value
either here to move so Allah azza wa jal is the one who will make it shake at that point violently if he so wished.
We need to stop at the same Amin to mantri sama
Do you feel secure that He
returned transaction says he who holds authority in the heaven brothers and sisters I have a simple question for you. Whereas Allah
on his arm
any other answers
No, it says that he who holds authority Oh man.
So that is in the heavens
above the heavens is above
same answer is above anyone else say everywhere you come down
in a way that is suitable time everywhere. Okay
Dear Brothers and Sisters
Brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala is indeed above and
This is the correct answer. And he is above the heavens and he is above everything and above all of his creation and also above
This is the correct answer. And this is the belief of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah. This is the belief of the companions that Allah be pleased with them all. This is the belief and the creed of the four great Imams
Abu Hanifa Imam Malik Imam Shafi and Imam Ashman. This is the Creed and the belief system of all of the pious generations. The reason we cannot
if you want to talk about it, we'll talk about it for a long time. But I want to give you the the correct opinion and continue that I've seen and if you want, we can maybe discuss it after that I've seen in more detail. The idea is yes, a combination
with his knowledge, right? If we want to claim that Allah is everywhere, then we have to claim that Allah azza wa jal, then you can
point and say Allah azza wa jal is there or Allah is here. And this is, Allah is beyond this and Allah is above this absorbed is he of having any location. And therefore even when we say everywhere, we have not exactly glorified Him, because then it means that Allah azza wa jal may be in places that are not suitable for Allah and not even suitable for you and need to spend too much time in like the restroom, or other places. If we are to claim he's everywhere. So Allah azza wa jal is not everywhere, Allah subhanaw taala is above. And this is why this is one of the proofs for that. And another beautiful proof for that is the famous Hadith when Prophet Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam asked a slave woman, where is Allah? And she said, this summer,
in the heavens or above the heavens, and then
told that companion, let her know other words monument her make her free and not a slave, for she is a believer.
He he praised her as a believer just because she knew as part of her, that Allah azza wa jal is above.
And this is the way the scholars understood this verse, Memphis Sana, but fee, usually we use to me in is Allah in the heavens, Ma Ma, Allah is absolved of anything containing him. Allah azza wa jal is above everything. He is above the heavens, we the throne itself is above the heavens, then you want to make Allah in the heavens. The throne is above the heavens, and Allah is above his throne, nothing contains him And subhanAllah brothers and sisters will live there is no other happy that gives you
pure Eman right? Without any doubt, like the way of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, the companions and the pious generations that followed them, they all understood these meanings this way, Allah is above and he is above everything, and nothing contains him. And in fact,
there's so many pieces of evidence that we can use from the Quran, and the Sunnah and many other things, to show that Allah has a vision and the best
way to understand it is and the the right way to understand is that Allah azza wa jal is above and a simple simple test for Muslim and non Muslim will prove that both of them believe the same thing in terms of the location of Allah and of course, Allah azza wa jal
is not restricted by location, where do you when you make do
Where are you looking? Whereas the directed
and non Muslim, a disbeliever I claim, if he is in the middle of a catastrophe, and he is about to die, and he wants to refer to Allah subhanaw taala Finally, he will remember that point and guess where he will look? He will look above
Allah is above everything.
Here he says Memphis summer.
Scholars interpreted that to mean that this fee in this situation
He does not mean fee meaning in it means asana and this is why you'll find in another translation he who is over the heaven
G who is over the Heaven.
Another interpretation is fie does not mean folk but it means that Allah
as in the saying of Allah subhanaw taala level suddenly been configured to do.
So I'm told the magicians that will suddenly feed
that I am going to crucify you. And he said seems
as if he's saying
the stems of the palm trees, but here feed does not have meaning. And all scholars said This means
you will crucify it hit them on the stems on the tree. And here similarly, and there it is, either, so here it is, three, but the meaning is Memphis sama man, Allah Sana, meaning the one who is above the Heaven.
In his authority and his power and his knowledge and so on. Here.
The people who translated the Quran, they resorted to when
they resorted to the will to try to understand what Memphis Sama means, in an attempt to absolve Allah subhanaw taala of location or of that, which he is about. And that really is not the way to do that. The way to absolve Allah azza wa jal of location and of all that He is above
is to say that Allah azza wa jal, this applies to Allah subhanaw taala in and in a way that is suitable to him, and his magnificence, and his grandeur, and so on. This is the best way to do so. And this is, by the way, the way many of the scholars and the great Imams used to explain some of these verses, only by reading them.
Even Hajer says that Imam Shafi Ilima considered reciting the verse as an explanation for these types of ions.
And be quiet, not to talk about it and to become philosophical and to go deep. And to
really start going deep into the philosophical understanding and the different ideas and the different Subhanallah, the pure green and the green of the pious generations, reciting the ISA and my brothers and sisters, I tell you, even some of the Imams who may have, quote, unquote, what they call the Annie wheel or something else they know and they have said clearly, that the way of the Salah we pious generations is the safest and the best way of understanding these types of verses, even an imam nawawi he said it in his introduction in much more.
Many of the other scholars have I can name some of them for you. The idea is, where is Allah subhanaw taala He is above, nothing contains Him, He is above the heavens, he is above his throne. And this is released that we can think through regards to Allah subhanaw taala This is the only way to absolve him of all of that. So he is above if there are any more questions about this, and it's a long topic, but I want to continue. We can do it after the scene if there are any other questions or comments.
You want to see,
can leave the or do you feel secure, that he who holds authority again in the heaven, or he was above the heavens would not sinned against you a storm of stones? Then you would know how severe was My warning?
Again? He says Do you feel secure? There he spoke about the shaking of the earth here is speaking about sending stones from the heavens. One
interesting way to understand the order that he used is to go back to the idea that we mentioned before who were living
Lulu he mentioned the earth first.
Functional three minute Give me what color
woman it is an eighth of His provision. And we know that part of this provision is that which comes from above, as Allah azza wa jal says, What is summary that is spoken woman. Right? And so therefore he mentioned the Earth First the shaking of the earth, and then he mentioned the possibility of stones coming down upon you from the heavens.
So, do you feel secure, that he was above the heavens, will send against you a storm of stones? Subhanallah another punishment but Allah azza wa jal is warning us off. Do you feel secure? Do you own the heavens?
Do you own it? Have you placed
Do you have some kind of a form
that will stop stones from raining down upon us? Wallahi we have not
where is the Earth's atmosphere enough Wallah it is not it was not enough for many of the peoples before maybe
some human beings, silly human beings will think that they can build some kind of a wall or a universal shield that will shield them from Allah subhanaw taala silly human beings silly thinking that they can stop the Wrath of Allah or the punishment of Allah says if you cannot, whatever you do, the punishment of Allah if He decrees it, it will come upon us. Allah azza wa jal will reign us with stones. He did so with Abdullah, who came to destroy the Kaaba, he did so with the people of New
Salem, he will continue to do it
with anyone if he so decreed that Allah azza wa jal protect us, we do so much to deserve the stones being rained upon us. But it is at the mercy of Allah azza wa jal, who has made the heaven as a protection, and as something that we feel secure about. It is he who holds
other ancestors, by His authority, and by His permission, and again, I say, don't feel secure that one day the Heaven itself will fall upon our heads. It is He Who has raised it without pillars, and it is he who has raised it and with His permission, and he says that if anyone else if he were to decree that he were to then were to fall on your head, no one will hold it from falling on your hands, except he No one can hold it except Allah subhanho wa Taala
he is the one who has protected us from it raining itself falling upon us or raining stones upon us and he says then you would know how severe was My warning? Here nothing in
the meaning linguistically in Arabic is nothing at weather yet at the end result Allah Munna K fan theory, but the yeah was
removed. And therefore the verse is perfect Allahu Allah, can you find the next verse is similar? Can you find a key whether Yeah, at the end, meaning that this is the meaning of the but obviously the meaning you extract from the word itself the the doesn't change the meaning, or the Muna case, and then you would know how severe was My warning? Only when.
we are exposed to the punishment of Allah's origin, then we know how severe is his warning level we know how severe is his punishment, but until then,
we were living in a sleep like state we live in but we're really sleeping.
If Allah azza wa jal were to punish us, then we would know how severe this warning once but we didn't realize it before.
I mean, any hints okay, if I can enter key, and already had those before them denied, and how terrible was My reproach? So if you are in doubt, are you in doubt that Allah azza wa jal might check the Earth? Are you in doubt that Allah azza wa jal when stones upon us from the heavens? It's not a new thing.
Hadn't had it never ever happened before. And Allah azza wa jal was warning you of it. Is it enough or not? It's enough. But to add to that, it has already happened before. It's happened in history. And you believe it and you have written over and over and over the
Allah has chosen has punished people by this. Who did he punish with with a quake?
What did he punish with an earthquake?
Right? He punished
the great king, whose treasures were so many and so heavy
the keys to its chest.
You needed several people to carry the key itself
to the chest of instructors.
You needed several people to carry. What happened to him.
It was it was this this severe earthquake that Allah azza wa jal destroyed them with.
The Lord swallowed them.
This is in history, and we believe it.
Allah azza wa jal reinstalls upon two people, a group as we just said, and the people who are following Abraha thinking so audaciously, you can destroy the house of Allah azza wa jal Subhan Allah He sent upon the birds.
we are in the days of artificial intelligence, and monsters and robots and video games. We see all kinds of monsters and ghouls and things that are just amazing. You might think Allah azza wa jal upon them something like this. No, he said them upon the birds
with stocks that destroy but completely abre and his people who do you think you are? You're challenging Allah azza wa jal Allah destroyed them route.
The king who challenged Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam he destroyed him how with a flyer on mosquito.
This shows you the the power, the omnipotence of Allah azza wa jal that he can destroy you this way. He can destroy you without a fly also, just by saying be
and you will explode as you are.
Your heart will stop. All of a sudden,
Allah azza wa jal decreased death upon you, but Allah azza wa jal in those cases, is destroying them.
With such as in the case of the moon, he destroyed him with the smallest of creation so that they can realize how cheap and helpless and weak and fragile they are. He destroyed you by one of the weakest of creation, which if you had seen before, you would laugh and scoff at he destroyed you with that. How disgraceful for a great king that was claiming to give life and decree that How disgraceful it is that a fly will kill you.
So Allah azza wa jal has destroyed the people before with something similar. Don't be Quraysh understand not they have intellect and don't the people after Quraysh understand and have intellect which this Quran is a warning for the case okay when a kid and how terrible indeed was My reproach?
Me yellow enough
me do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and sometimes folded. None holds them aloft except the Most Merciful. Indeed, He is of all things, seeing, as Allah azza wa jal before was warning them. Now it is a call for deliberation, for pondering in an in a disciplinary manner, that only Allah knows the wisdom behind. Otherwise you'll see that the next verse is also
a verse of your approachment
a verse of schooling,
and a warning.
But in the middle of those warnings
are a gentle call is a gentle call for deliberation and pondering, who is behind this?
other than Allah subhanaw taala
warning after warning, then
deliberation, a gentle call for delivery, then warning again, conceive and keep hope and fear, as we have seen many times
do they not see the birds and look, deliberation over what? Over the birds, the birds that Allah azza wa jal
used a soldier of his to destroy and to throw the stones now No.
A gentle Look at the birds and they're flying. Do they not ponder over this a great miracle, a great sign. If only we pondered and deliberated and had intellect
This is in much more detail than the other iron.
There he just mentioned birds that Allah subhanaw taala has
created and that they are in
they are flying. Okay. In the air. Here, he mentioned several things Number one, he mentioned they are above them. Our Amuro
the birds are above them saw flat
out spread, their wings are out spread and folded in.
G is calling you to deliberate over the sign of Allah. The birds flying in the air, how many people wish they could fly?
Oh many Subhan Allah. What would you do if you flew?
Would you punish people?
Subhan Allah. Well, you can go wherever you want. You can try to go beyond the frontiers. There. Marcia Gibney, is in a step up momentum for the cabal is similar to an open flow. Let them do some fun. So Allah azza wa jal has given you the technology, you have rockets you have wager,
flying for the last 30 years in outer space, did it hit the frontier? Did it go beyond? They did reach the option.
My Allah, we are more
disgraceful than to even come close to anything like this or to scratch the surface of this universe or that we are getting to this, the edge of the universe and we're starting to push out to cause a bulge in the universe as some of the scientists are saying, the idea is if you were to fly, what would you do with it? You would still be held accountable right?
As long as you have free will.
are burned held accountable? No. Right? We're talking of only Allah
gave us the ability to fly as human beings, would you still be accountable? To be accountable?
That's why I will look it up the other hand, when he saw that bird, he was talking about it not because it was flying. It's because it's a bird when they saw the bird and he said,
I wish I was in your place. Because you will not be held accountable on the Day of Judgment, Allah.
Be careful to say something similar on the day of judgment, but the whole cafeteria like 10 equal to two Rama Allahu Akbar, if only we deliberated over this, that the disbeliever will say if only I was just
this great scholar on the podium, speaking to 1000s of people
dazzling the world
about evolution and Darwinism, and God knows what denying the existence of Allah. If he dies as a disbeliever he will say Well, I wish I was dust.
You have written hundreds of books. You are the great PhD, the great teacher, the great so on. You will wish that you were dust on the Day of Judgment, a few dyers and disbeliever all of this knowledge doesn't help you.
Looking at the birds makes you realize Subhanallah the sign of Allah azza wa jal in that he has made many of the creatures with him here on this earth, but he has made creatures with a different ability and that is the ability to fly may go Subhanallah wherever they want. This is why the will of Allah subhanaw taala
if you would like to try to fly yourself, maybe difficult, because there's gravity, it's going to pull you back down.
Even if you put wings I don't think it'll help you your body will not help you. Unless you are really really liked. I tried to fly once I tried to jump off something. Kids do different things. That didn't work. So you want Superman over and over and over and you think you can fly.
But will you have it in Jana? Maybe
if Allah azza wa jal takes us to dinner, if we do what is required for Jana?
Danny was told that after, of course he was martyred. He wasn't sleeping in bed. He was martyred. He was doing something for those wings. And the disbelievers cut his right arm and then his left arm. And still then he went and tried to catch the flag with his chest without his his hands. This is what they did. In order that Allah azza wa jal would give him wings. And then he would fly in paradise May Allah azza wa jal bring us together with him and Jana,
If I finish on still, okay, alcohol soft.
He mentioned that the rings are outspread and folded in
he is mentioning to you the dynamics of the birds flight.
And you'll notice Subhanallah that he mentioned
and when he mentioned folding in, he didn't say
we could have said soft
but he didn't say that he said
there it is
then used a verb. And there's a very good reason for this and the only Glory to the on ones that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned. So, isn't fine, they say that grammatically in Arabic soft
gives you the meaning off
long lasting consistent and gives you the meaning of something renewing itself or happening one time after another. And you notice that the dynamics of the flight of the bird you will find that most of the times you'll find their birds their wings are out spread especially on the ocean, you see them right with wings outspread and this is the way they fly and every now and then
they start flapping right and folding the wings in in order to
give themselves more momentum right.
Other scholars interpreted as
being after the flight is over when they are on the ground, they will fold their wings but most scholars refer to suffer
during the flight itself
okay outspread and sometimes folding them in so, the idea is
and the exception to that is when they have to fold them to get more momentum Subhanallah this is part of the dynamics of the flight of the bird and of course Allah azza wa jal
gave them that ability so that they can fly this is how many scholars interpreted this and mention this difference why one of them is suffered and the other as well.
Okay, so, here is referring to and I understood what you said exactly. That is referring to the angels who Allah Allah azza wa jal says well Sfakia
Okay, no, no, they're like because the angel see as in the same Surah At the end, okay
and that we are the ones who are what? Standing in line, right? The angels, the angel stand in line
and close together as we are supposed to stand in Salah and this is why there's a narration that Prophet Muhammad Salim said to the the people praying stand as the angels do before their Lord, the angel stand before them and in a straight line and together well press
one and soften that we are the ones who stand in line. So this is Allah azza wa jal swearing by those angels was soft fatty, suffer
totally different two different completely there it is suffered he gave him the name of soft that the ones who stand in line
soft fat meaning the ones with wings outspread soft satin wire, okay.
metaphorical extension like when you have a spring out this straight to definitely soft heart here means outspread they are outspread some scholars said
when you talk about the strictly the verb suffer, suffer means to put in line. So what have they put in line? Sometimes sentence
They have put in line the feathers in one line indirectly by spreading the wings. So that they are all like one line. So far, either way, the meaning is the same, which is outspread wings, and SubhanAllah. Where are the scientists to take the dynamics of flight from this? I asked you, is the airplane not also soft?
The wings are striped, and they're pulled out. This is part of the dynamics of flight? Where are the scientists to discover the forces of drag and lift?
This is the
dynamics drag these two forces
that you get by the wings spread out? And then of course, the turbine engine, which is okay, this is what's giving you the added momentum. Where is this? How much Subhanallah people can deduce only the deliberate over the Quran?
It's possible they did. And then technically, they talk about some of the first scientists who started trying to invent the plane, they were not Western scientists, they were Arab scientists.
Okay, who first tried to make a plane and to fly and so on.
So it wasn't the Wright brothers. This is what they teach you, the Wright brothers are the first people on the plane, this is wrong. And by the way, half of the things you learn that the first people invented scientifically, you will find it is not the case, there was an Arab or Muslim scientist, I give you a small example. Okay. And this is
Pavan Sina, haven't seen talked about the third
of Newton. He spoke about it hundreds of years before him. And he mentioned it as clearly as Newton mentioned, about the the issue of
requiring a force to move or to start to accelerate. And if it is already in motion, it will not come to a stop unless there is a force to stop it. This is the first law sorry. This was mentioned I haven't seen up long before hundreds of years before, where will you read this? You won't even read it in a Muslim book, you will read about Newton's law first SubhanAllah? Where are the Muslims? Where are they with respect to science? Where are they with respect to their own scientists, who brought so much science to the world that people benefit from today, but it's all attributed to non Muslims. So fatten were
all these beautiful dynamics are for naught. If it wasn't for Allah.
For not, let them spread their wings. Let them fold them in. Let them do whatever they please, by Allah if it wasn't for Allah holding most birds in flight, nothing will hold up, they will not fly.
The airplanes will not fly.
I will not speak if it wasn't for the will of Allah. Your hearts will stop beating of Allah so will in this instant. Allah does what he pleases. It's all by the will of Allah. There is not an atom in the universe, or the supposin electrons or protons in it. They will not
they will not even move one centimeter. If it wasn't for the will of Allah Sasha. If it wasn't for the existence of Allah. If
Allah subhanaw taala decreed otherwise nothing would happen. Nothing would work. You say but
I mean all these gloves, Allah surgeon is the one who put them there.
So he doesn't have to be the one behind it. No, he is the one behind it. And this verse proves it.
And this verse negates what some philosophers call the clockwork theory, that this world and this universe is like clockwork, it's like a watch, right? A Swiss watch. You made the watch. You put all the gears you invented it, and then
it's going and going and going like the Duracell bunny
going and going and going, never stopping.
And the watch doesn't stop. Where's the background? The watch is not limited anymore. It's going no, the universe is not like this. Now, young
Subhan Allah Glory Be the one who juxtaposed the dynamics of flight. The worldly means that you and I are always clinging to you juxtapose that with the, with just saying, Now you I'm sick.
No one holds them in flight, except Allah, the Most Merciful. They're next to each other. Have they not been? You might have said well, Allah mentioned the dynamic scope of flight, it means it is because of dynamics that the birds are flying.
We say no, it is that and the fact that Allah is holding them. And if Allah azza wa jal does not hold them, they will fall. Now you have sequin de la man. And likewise, every other thing in this universe is only operating the way it is, by no scientific laws, but only by the will of Allah, these laws that Allah azza wa jal has placed me nothing.
If it wasn't for the fact that Allah azza wa jal is making them work.
Please be clear about this. Now I am sick.
And this is the proof for it.
a lot of words that have wings, but they can fly but they can fly Subhan Allah, Allah has decreed otherwise. Now you might find that you might also find a scientific explanation for why they don't play. But ultimately you will find also that Allah azza wa jal is the one who decreed them that way. But I say even those birds that are flying, and have every capability to fly, if it wasn't for Allah holding them, not giving them the laws of flight,
Allah azza wa jal wanted,
he will nullify the forces of drag and the forces of lift and all of this other stuff that we learned in engineering, right? It's all for naught. Allah says,
On the Day of Judgment, what scientific laws are you talking about?
The heavens will be torn apart. What scientific law does not follow?
is a sham, so called
the day when the light of the sun
will disappear. By what law does not follow.
The Mountains will become dust off, whereas a luna Canyon zhiban Boolean seems to have been asked what scientific laws this there are no laws. At that point, brothers and sisters, all laws cease to exist. So despite Allah has been putting those laws, it is by his will and command Subhana wa taala, that these laws operate, and that everything in the universe operates in equally shading muscles. Indeed, He is of all things see, it is because he sees all things, and knows all things and knows
how all things must operate, that he has decreed it this way. And it is because of that, that the birds themselves are flying in the heavens. And this is a subtle warning
for those disbelievers that we were talking about in the past two versus a few think that despite Allah azza wa jal giving them the dynamics of flight to these birds, and then you think made him sick one man despite that, you will understand that the only thing that stops the heaven from falling is Allah and the only thing that stops stones from flying on our heads from the heavens, is Allah and the only thing holding the earth stable is Allah.
you need caffeine?
Or who is it that could be an army for you, to aid you other than the Most Merciful? The disbelievers are not but in delusion. It is talking to these disbelievers, these pagans, who have given their idols all authority and all ability and all strength when these idols cannot hear or see and they cannot eat you in any way by Allah, they cannot eat themselves, much less to aid you. You know the story of amor obinutuzumab will be Allah on
a man who became Muslim by the creativity in the hour of His children. He had a small idols
that he used to put on the shelf and after his son became Muslim
He would take the item at night, and he would go and he would throw it in the mud.
And then he woke up on
what happened? Where's the item? Where did it go? And he started searching, he's searching for his God. He went, and he found his God, where in the face down in the mud, Allahu Akbar, who has disgraced my god this way. SubhanAllah. If he can be disgraced, he's not a God, for Allah sake.
He took it and he cleaned it, and he put it back on the shelf. And the next day, the same thing disappears. And he looks and looks like he finds it in the mud.
And the third day, he did the same, he put it on the shelf, and again, but this time, he said, I think it was called mana, Allahu Allah. And he told me if you are indeed God, protect yourself. And he gave it a little sword
And the next day, he finds it facedown in the mud with the sword that is and you're not on guard, and you're not anything and he went and he said his shahada, and he declared that there is no God worthy of worship, but Allah and the Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, these gods cannot eat themselves, much less aid, the people who are worshipping them, so Allah azza wa jal is telling them or who is it that could be an army for you an army, the army also who isn't that would be an army for you, to aid you, other than the Most Merciful Allah subhanaw taala. Notice Subhanallah even when he is talking about the army,
aiding you, he mentioned him as the most merciful, glory be to the one who
has the qualities of mercy and the qualities of power all in one, without any contradiction, the qualities of gentleness and the qualities of glory and strength, all in one, no one can combine these qualities all in perfect harmony, except Allah subhanaw taala. Here is speaking about an army aiding them.
The only one he says, is the most merciful, your Lord Allah.
The disbelievers are not but in delusion in Cafe Runa elaphiti.
This could be a reference to their delusion, about what their idols can achieve, this can be a reference to their delusion, about the fact that they will stay like this forever in this dunya without fearing the earth shaking, without fearing that stones might might destroy them from the heavens, they are living in comfort right in insecurity. And Allah azza wa jal has just one month before coming to Memphis Nextiva. So they are in delusion, they are thinking that they can just be comfortable like this and not fear the wrath and the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala in in Caffee, Runa in Nephi rule all of the things that they do, it shows that they are not in delusion
and that they are in a state of arrogance concerning the truth that has come to them from the Lord yes
I will be as good Oh, my situation will be as good as now.
Panicking I'm looking at the honey delusion.
Delusion arrogance. It's like
a Muslim came to him and said, Where's my money?
He had launder money. Where's my money? He said, I'll give it to you in an app.
He thinks he will have that. So Allah azza wa jal revealed this verse. This is the reason for the revelation of that verse
that didn't, does he know the unseen that under their judgment, He will have all of this money and all of the riches that he has now. So it's similar. It's the same value
Say I will have the same delusion, delusion arrogance, the the the
the shaper causing them to be in the state momstart
Zuko come in soccer is
jovial too we
are Who is it that could provide for you if he withheld His provision? A similar question to the previous one, the previous one said Who is it that could be an army to aid you? And now it says who is it that would provide for you? I asked you brothers and sisters and I asked myself, if Allah azza wa jal withheld this provision, by Allah, the whole universe would starve.
The universe would starve.
Everything on this earth would starve not only the human beings, the plants, the animals, the the the one celled organisms and everything would starve if Allah azza wa jal had chosen to do so. Not by destroying them, just by withholding His provision, by withholding the supposedly scientific laws that make all of the organisms on the earth be in harmony and in peace and live on each other. If Allah azza wa jal willed, all of this would stop, and nothing, nothing would be able to receive its provision or to eat or to drink or to grow. It is all by the will of Allah subhanaw taala.
If he chose to withhold it, so he is reminding them also, that what if Allah azza wa jal withheld this provision, this provision is his, he just mentioned a few verses ago, what coluna risk and eat have his permission. So here he's telling you if you withheld this permission, that
no one would be able to then provide it. And therefore remember this when you are seeking your provision. It is only from ALLAH and a few withheld it from you than it is from Allah. If you lost your job, it is from Allah, he decreed it for you, He will help you provision and just like he withheld it, he can give it back to you again, seek it from him. And at the same time in parallel, take the worldly means that Allah has provided for you
to win win fooled the answer.
They didn't accept this, they have persisted in insolence, okay, but to win meaning, arrogance and insolence and
not accepting that Allah azza wa jal has given them one full version
they have averted from this, this is the problem he's answering it for you. He's telling you they have not responded to these warnings for these two reasons. They have what they have persisted. What does What does not come from Arabic speakers let do
not go away? No.
You allege, through, go through go. Exactly. To go in or to go through, right. And this is why almost Pakala called the the sea by Heron gene, a very deep ocean, going deep down in it. So which means to go in, right?
That which goes inside
there and use this term to show you they are inside arrogance and aversion. They're super deep inside that you fear to win one. And it shows you that that person whose state is this
Don't dream of guiding them to Islam. It doesn't mean that you should not do that. Do that. But if you find that they're just completely closed,
go to someone else. You might find someone else who was much more open. This person is inside a circle of arrogance and insolence and aversion and obstinacy and argumentation. But let jufeel to when wonderful and so many are like that. May Allah azza wa jal forgive us an excerpt from us and give us an understanding of the Quran Baraka Lao Feeco hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen Yes.
Yeah, that led up to when one
is very loud. Yes.
Definitely. There are ultimately in darkness. Yes. There are many darkness is even
Praise Allah azza wa jal certainly the Noble Quran, right our cover rheumatic fever
great darkness is in the depths of the ocean and this in itself by the way, there is an adjunct.
Scholars have done research on this, how light doesn't reach the very depths of the ocean? And there's a reason for scientific reasons for that.
Any questions or comments? Yes?
Okay, next week
gonna be in
Regency palace. Okay, so tafsir is postponed
change it to Thursday.
The doctor will be in town. So there'll be a talk on Saturday.
At this time, what time seven o'clock at
Regency palace and sha Allah. So what do we do about the deficit? cancel or
change to Thursday?
No, not possible.
Subhanallah however, we are all working. Anything else? But there's anything about the the one we mentioned about Allah subhanaw taala. In terms of the the occluder about where's Allah? Some people had he was above any questions about that? No.
It's just simply,
definitely, the answer. The answer is,
we know that the difference of opinion and many later scholars, they try to understand all of this in that light. By the way, I'll tell you some of the other funny sayings of the scholars about this. Some said that I mean to men for some admins are the angels. Another thing is Gibreel. And the fact that Gibreel is Ali Salaam is the one who sent the earth where he's the one who took the city of Santa loop and turned it around. So they said this is a reference to Gibreel. But all of it has to be says all of it is an attempt to run away from the Ashby and there is no tests be okay. You're not making Allah similar to any of his creation. When you do this. When you claim that Allah is
absorbed, anything that is similar to his creation, laser chemistry, he shaved, well, who was Sammy, nothing is like him. This is the way to understand the qualities of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the way we absorb Allah any qualities that may seem blameworthy or some semblance of
being below our human being or something like that. Allah is above all of this. We always say this is intended in a way that Allah azza wa jal intended, as we say, that,
when we say that Allah is above who say He is above, and he is above everything, and that Allah azza wa jal comes down in the last third of how I have no idea and neither do you. And Alex said the same about real estate. Is he above the frog? We don't know. When the man came to remember, like he said, what is the what does
rise above his throne, he said,
Ma, who will cave
and other narration said was
and asked him about it is a bit. And I think you are a person of beta and he threw him out of his lesson. The idea is that these things were clear to the emails. We don't know how this is beyond us. But we know and we, we, we affirm that which Allah affirmed about himself in the Quran, or in the authentic sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.
Is not a trick, but when when, when the people who talk about that Arcada say he's everywhere, they don't mean in his knowledge. They mean he's really everywhere, because they will don't want to say that he is above they don't want to say he's in a certain location or somewhere that we never said he was in a certain location. But where is he? The answer is He is above, above the heavens as well. I think I don't know much about I think the most simple people they understand
He was far better than anybody. Precisely, precisely. And this is why this is why
this is why
understand, someone was holding, like, like, let's find the sun when he saw the moon, just hanging. And it seems he was an atheist or is not very pious or God, you know, fearing and he just saw the moon just hanging there, he said, There has to be a god.
he just realized
Subhanallah people are supposed to meet Imam Al Ghazali what you said, Man who has early who was known to have gone very deep into philosophy and into this all of these January ideas and the philosophical ideas about Allah and the the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. And he became so proficient he was he became more intelligent than them and he use their own arguments against them. But in the end, he said, it was a big, big waste of time.
Because in the end, nothing gives you more certainty than these verses of the Quran when you take it that way. And like you said, like you said, precisely,
a, any layman who understand these things, may understand it and have more certainty in his heart about Allah than some of these people who have gone into the depths of philosophy. You might find some of those people with more doubts, than certainties. The best way is the way the Quran gives us the athlete and that's why you find the way the Quran explains that is not philosophical at all. Is the Quran philosophical about the existence, not at all. And this is why you have the certainty that you do Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah, it's forever everyone. So panic alone haven't learned and the stuff
