Cathedral in Cleveland without a conceit of little slow to attend with this Liana so you know Imam you know have even known Shafi discussing Muhammad
Ali, your sophomore
son Eli Eumundi.
I praise Allah Almighty.
I sent prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his noble family, righteous companions and all those that follow them right guidance until the day of judgment.
The brothers and sisters
we say Glory between all law knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us? Indeed you are the unknowing the wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala as he has guided us to this religion, to guide us to the Quran, and to the secrets and the depths of the Quran to give us its understanding, to make it an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment in sha Allah. Today, God willing, we are starting a new section. And this is
section 30 of the Quran. This is the last juice of the Quran.
And we start in sha Allah surah and never and this is why it is called.
the 29th section is called Why? Because of the first word in the first Surah right? So I'm alone so this is why it's called
This is why many people call it this and
the first of course, the name of the surah is surah and never write
a shape on your body Bismillah Hello, man you're walking
for soon as another
meaning, the news or the happening
about what are they asking one another?
About the great news. Of course, be careful Grace here implies something good.
But in the Arabic
It doesn't imply something good, right? When usually when you say something is great, okay, it implies that something is also good. But when he said nobody loving, it doesn't give you that connotation. There's something excellent. Or very good, right? It just means something great meaning something big. Okay, something serious, right? You see already? How, you know such a small detail. But it makes a difference. Because when you say about the great news, oh, what's the good news? You know, it's almost like something like have a glass hiding. So it's difficult to translate
the words of the Quran specifically and precisely about the great news or the serious news or the big news that over which they are in disagreement? No, they are going to know then No, they are going to know
unless this sort of course is another second chapter. Okay, concentrating on the usual topics of lectins Surah as we have discussed many times in the past.
About what are they asking one another? Just two short words, creating so much suspense already? It is ringing in the heavens in the earth.
About what are they questioning each other? Were they questioning or what were they questioning each other about in the first place and who are laid in
The first place. Of course, the immediate reference is going to be obviously to the disbelievers and the pagans
who deny Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we're asking each other about something. And Allah azza wa jal is creating the suspense
to us about what it is they are asking each other.
What are they asking each other about?
Of course, immediately, that tells us that they were literally sitting down and asking each other
according to the popular opinion, this is referring to the Day of Judgment.
Therefore, they're asking each other about what about the Day of Judgment, this is something that
constituted an important part of their life after Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam introduced themselves to them as a messenger. All of a sudden, one of the topics of the day which didn't exist before,
the way it does now,
was the name judgment. They're asking each other about judgment, what is the same document? What is he talking about? That we're all gonna be resurrected, we're all going to come back to life after we are dead. After we are both after we are in the dust in the soil, right? So many verses in the Quran, where they are denying the resurrection based on this, after we've completely been there and we perish. Under the first we're gonna be brought up again. What is it that he tells us about paradise and hellfire and punishment and pleasure in the hereafter? people, all people standing together, people being held accountable, they're asking each other, it's obviously something that
became a concern to them.
picked up to verse number three.
So they're asking each other about it.
There's also the opinion that this year alone is not necessarily questions, but conversation, that they're talking to each other about this. And there's a verse in the Quran, which I can give you as a delay for it. But I don't want to go on a tangent. So it could be conversation, but the popular opinion is they are literally asking each other about it. And they're not only asking each other, but they're also asking the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
When is this promise that you are promising us? Right? When is this promise? When is it going to happen? Okay, when
are we going to be brought together for this day, as you see?
What do they inquire about Allah? Allah poses it as a question, unless
Basically, it's an introduction to the seriousness of this issue he is about to tell us about
it, what is this thing that causes them to constantly question each other about it? When it's become something serious and important, and it is occupying my time and my mind? I start I constantly ask questions about it. Similarly to Muslims, when they ask a chef or scholar constantly about a certain issue, this person is always asking, let's say about paradise and hellfire. Why? Because it's serious for them. It's taking a serious part of his brain, Paradise and hellfire under their judgment. Similarly, they are asking each other
about the great news.
news, which is very serious, which is the greatest and most important news, it is the biggest news. It is the breaking story. When you talk about breaking news. This is the breaking news, my dear friends, my dear brothers and sisters.
The Day of Judgment is the ultimate news. If you want to call it the ultimate news, maybe that's the
better understanding. Ultimate news. There's nothing more important than this. It's gonna be the first story. Right? It's gonna be an all of the headlines. How on earth Subhanallah woods, our current media cover this story. Yo, 1pm Can you imagine? Here I am in the middle of God knows where. And I see a big tear in that
Since the pilot, you're up here I have in front of this mountain and all of a sudden I just see that it has become, can you imagine this story? How would you cover the story? There's no one gonna be covering anything because when this happens, people are just going to be running.
People are going to be fleeing. This is something else. My my brothers and sisters life as we know it is over everything we have come to become familiar with and love. In this universe, of nature that Allah has allocated, it's all going to be nullified. All of the laws are going to be broken, you're going to see things. This is if we see the Day of Judgment, Allah Allah when it will be, but whoever will see if it's going to be something else, I will never allow him. This great day, my dear brothers and sisters, when everything comes to an end, finally,
everything will perish. Eventually, everything will die except Allah subhanaw taala nothing will remain, except Alonso isn't everything
in this universe, that list
for how the spirits will die, only Allah sees and remains because he is the first and he is the last he has no beginning and he has no end. But everything else was personally destroyed. Another ill having In fact, it is interesting when you
read in the Quran,
almost every description of your piano, you will find this adjective allowing something that is just ultimate, okay? And this is why
you find in the Quran.
Many of the messengers peace be upon them all, warned their peoples and said to them in a half alley, Kumada yo me.
I fear for you the punishment, right?
Dream of an ultimate date, a human being right? And he calls it another 11 And in the beginning of surah.
Allah Oh, humanity there.
No, this is addressing all of humanity. Let all of humanity be afraid that all of humanity prepare for this ultimate news. Yeah, you.
Fear your Lord, the shaking or the trembling
is indeed something great something ultimate, something beyond imagination. It is your own hobby. This is another loving,
who will be able to describe the Day of Judgment. Who is better to describe the day of judgment on the one who will decrease judgment and this is Allah subhana wa Sahana. This is the Day of Judgment my brothers and sisters, this is no simple matter. This is Ultimate Reality. We started sort of in half. It is called
Ultimate Truth, the ultimate reality. There's no truth after this. After the truth of the judgement, there is no truth everything else is false. other than Allah subhanaw taala the listen Allah, the listen the Day of Judgment, right? He says, ultimate truth it is a fun
and we will get to this eventually in sha Allah.
This is something else today of resurrection today.
Standing before Allah subhanaw taala The Day of Account, the day of accountability, where everyone be held accountable for everything that they've ever done, the day when punishments will become true
and will apply to those who disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala and is believed in him, the day when all of the rewards of Allah will finally come to pass to the believers. This is something else all people brought together for this day. Can you imagine all people as we discussed that sort of thing. Musella
Yong Yong want to jump right in so that's
the old man's mouth.
The day where there is deceit as we studied before, this is young one gentleman when Allah azza wa jal would bring all together for the account and then eventually tell all the separated again to talk about only young was
something else My dear brothers and sisters, if only we understood, only we delivery unless
I didn't know that lovely about
out this ultimate news, they are asking each other. It's indeed something scary. What have we prepared for it?
In the other opinion, and this is the opinion of Lima Mujahid and some of the modern scholars have said that another 11 is a reference to the
never allowing this in itself is another and they use the other verse where Allah says
and this is why many scholars said that verse is referring to an Quran and two
are turning away from
other scholars answered and said no, it can also apply to the day of judgment, because
you are essentially turning away from this news and this news is the day of judgment and people are turning away from a lot of
The authentic has is that the hour has indeed come near.
Right. And people only this are only distancing themselves from Allah subhanaw taala.
And they are
there their concern and preoccupation with the dunya is increasing. I mean, never allowed him so it can also apply to the Quran. But the more popular opinion is, it is a reference to the day of judgment. And the scholars who argued such said because right after the vs that will finish God willing today, Allah azza wa jal set in naomh. Well, firstly, can I mean, so it is all speaking about human rights,
the day of judgment.
He moves telephone
of about which they differ. They're different amongst each other.
The Imam says the following.
He says it is resurrection after death.
People different with too many opinions concerning it.
Some obviously believed it and others denied it.
They all believe in it. No one argues about death, right? There's no one who's immortal, even though they're trying to discover the secrets of immortality, right? But for all practical purposes, everyone is a mortal, right? So no one believes in death. So he says,
As for death, they all believe in it, because they're all experiencing it. And they're seeing it in front of them. Right. But they differ about resurrection after death, a lady whom fee works telephone, they are indeed different about this ultimate news.
concerning their differing, some said,
maybe it's not the day of judgment, because they're not differing about it, when this one is in it.
But here we're talking about some difference of opinion, you know, there does seem to be a difference of opinion, even from the
right even if you study the verses of the Quran, in some of the verses, the disbelievers say in the
This is complete disbelief, right? complete denial,
the whole nother
this life, nothing. We've not even we live
we live in
And we will not be resurrected, period. Right? These are complete denial. Right?
There are others who were questioning and whore asking, when is this day that you are promising us it's almost as if they are afraid of it. And they believe, you know, there might be some reality to the issue. Many of them
that the disbelievers are saying that indeed, if we are to become dust and bones, and
are we going to be resurrected after this, so obviously, this is a question that is posed in the form of a question. So there seems to be some more complete denial. Right? And some who
maybe have a little bit of a thought, okay, they were obviously disagreeing amongst each other, that you go to sort of
you find the same type of disagree disagreement and confusion also right. Once
I've been muddied by logic one, Jeff will give a minimum, but they wonder that that has come to them a warning from among themselves, they're amazed at it, right. And this money, we're saying, this is an amazing thing.
When we have died, and have become,
this is another words we will return to life. This is a distance and unlikely return. So they're just believing in it, right? We know
what the earth diminishes of them and with us is a retaining record. But they didn't live the truth when it came to them. So they are in a confused condition. So there's obviously confusion,
seem to be absolutely set. But many also seem to be confused. And therefore I remind you again, my dear brother, my dear sister, when you are discussing issues of religion with a disbeliever, and they speak to you as if they are speaking and standing on the ground that exists on know very well, standing on quicksand, all you have to do is to shake it, and you will shake their foundation. But for the sake of argumentation, they must display to you complete certainty about what they say. But deep inside, they're confused.
And all you have to lose to stand firm with your truth and speak
with your certainty and your your pain, and you will shake them, they are ultimately confused.
And let the home see.
They are disagreeing amongst each other. Even if you look at
some of the Christians who may believe in the day of judgment and resurrection, but they live they believe in it in the spiritual sense, not necessarily that our bodies our material bodies will be resurrected, but that it is a resurrection of the soul. Right? So there's this belief, there's complete disbelief in the whole idea. And there's this belief in the details of the idea, as has been mentioned and displayed in the Quran and why Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.
Then agreed on the ideas. There's also disagreements about the ways how does it happen? And when, you know, what are the details of it? There's disagreement about the idea itself, and there's disagreements about the details of it.
Of course, they are deferring.
But eventually they will know that it is the truth. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala said can No,
this color is refusing everything that they are claiming everything that they are denying, it is not as they say, it is not as they claim can
in color from Allah subhanaw taala it's not like color from you and me.
Let us know what they're saying and what they're claiming, is incorrect. Can last
period, say they will come to
Canada again, more certainty.
No, they will come, they will come to know what
they'll come to know. Everything that they were denying and confused about here in this dunya. And God willing you and I were showing them and telling them about they will come to know it one after another. This is why the man was covered. He says the following.
The affair is not as they claim that Allah azza wa jal is not the threat from after the nest, or that Allah azza wa jal was not punished them for disbelieving in him right? So many obviously this believes in the punishment, they will know that it is not as they said,
when they meet Allah subhanaw taala. And finally we'll see the evil consequences of their sins and their disbelief. Indeed, my brothers and sisters say Allahu Allah say Allah who did not allow us and say, What
am Colombian colleague whom they will come to know, right? These
transgressors are the ones who have wronged Allah subhanaw taala and themselves and humanity, they will know finally, what is
what conclusions will be there for them?
They will know
who is the one who's going to be punished by severe punishment? Right.
They will know who are the ones who are misguided and who are the ones who work
right and they claimed all the ways that you are the misguided and they laughed and they they will know.
Absolutely, mankind has been right.
They will know that Allah is
right. You may even you are feeling low Dina was halfway
will happen within
that day they will know that the ultimate truth.
And the reality is Allah subhanaw taala will come to know with with absolute certainty on the Day of Judgment, they'll come to know all of these things, my dear brothers and sisters, they will also know who is truly the one who is disgraced. And who is truly the one who is honored. They claim the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The most honorable of course, they claim that he is the disgrace that you
the leader of the hypocrites, that the other one will kick or expel out.
The disgraced one he was talking about themselves as the other
as a disgrace, they'll come to know on the Day of Judgment, this is the opposite. The people will be saying what
they will be saying to each other, how can we are not seeing these men who wish to think or we estimated at the time, these are the evil ones, these are the worst ones.
And then they realize, oh, you know, we were looking at those unjustly. Right? Or we will not see them. Allah's origin has blinded our eyes. So it's one of the two. Either they're here with us, but we don't see them. Or we were wrong. We were mocking them wrongly and unjustly. They'll come to know all of this, my dear brothers and sisters, they will say the disbelievers not the believers, the disbelievers will say, they'll come and smell
we truly used to hear and see, we will not be of the people of the Hellfire, they come to realize the reality precisely as it is
on the day of judgment can last a moon
all part of the suspense of these first five verses a man
tell us what it is all
study phone until now, I don't know the details, the description of
when he changes the subject
it leaves him vague, it
it will come later. But first, he has to remind them of all of his blessings in this dunya
in these my brothers and sisters, you know the beautiful,
you will have the woman seeking medical similar to another one and so on and so forth. And then he comes to the part where he says well I can handle
and all praise is due to you You are
Have one you can have
one after another
you are the truth and seeing you
is reality and you are saying is reality and your promises truth and reality. Paradise and hellfire our truth and reality and the hour is truth and reality.
The Prophet, peace be upon them all our reality and
is ultimate truth and reality like this, we make certain for ourselves and we declare the ultimate truth. This is and they will come to judgment can let's say Allah moon
then Allah azza wa jal mentioned these amazing
his ultimate capability and that he is able to do all things. He says elements are added
Have We not made a resting place?
Now let us analyze the word
we had. It comes from
is a credo, right? This is one of the meanings, okay, like a crib or a cradle, it is the bed that the baby sleeps on, right? And those were the same in the lab, okay? This is an, it comes from the verb
means to prepare something for yourself or for someone else
also comes as much as a parade, meaning he prepares the way the road for someone to work for someone maybe makes it smooth, maybe he makes it something which is ready for people to work on or to move on. This is all part of the some of the meanings that you get from the word man.
It's all parts of preparation, preparation, of course, you because obviously, beds are usually prepared, right? Even our beds
are prepared, putting the blankets removing it, making it clean, right part of the sooner.
Of course, at his time, it was probably even more required for us to clean his bed, in spite of the sunlight to clean your bed. Right? And to clean your pillow and whatever it may be, of course, at the time it was because, you know, God knows what may or may have crawled into the bed and so on. So he was cleaning, but it's also good even
in our time. So the bed requires preparation, right? This is
Allah subhanaw taala says in another place that he called the earth men, right?
He has been part of the blessings of Allah, Allah Allah is that he made it indeed, this
earth as a resting place as they translated, you notice the Panama and the different places in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has called the earth many things and the meanings are very similar. Here he says elements.
In the other verse,
Allah says in the beginning of social Nakara.
And Raj is also used in Arabic to speak about a myth. Right? Allah
Siracha was Santa
in another place, just
wanted to say about the Earth.
bringing together like a receptacle right? And we spoke about we spoke a lot about FIFA. And allow
to cool and Fiji. Here he describes it as a carpet. So he's describing it as a bed is describing it as a resting place is describing it as as a carpet all giving you the meaning of flatness,
flatness with regard
to the human beings and the creatures that are walking on it, is it not?
Otherwise, if it wasn't such, we wouldn't be able to work on it, we would find it difficult to work on it. If it wasn't for gravity, we would fall off of it, even though it is indeed round. But all of these terms are just giving you the flatness
of a flat plane that allows you to walk on it, to live in it to work in it. As opposed to something that may have so many valleys and troughs where you will not be able to walk where you would find it difficult to live on it. If it wasn't for gravity.
If it wasn't for gravity, if you and I now sitting in this machine are on the bottom part of the Earth.
It wouldn't feel like we are upside down you don't feel that way right because of gravity. Because Allah subhanaw taala has made the earth indeed like a bed. And for all practical purposes. You sit on the bed, the bed doesn't sit on you. Right. You rest on the bed, you rest on the resting place. You sit on the carpet, the person doesn't sit on you.
So it means that despite the fact that it is
as if it is indeed just the long, never ending plane right
As if it is something flat it is all grounds that you are able to walk on it.
Indeed it is. It is a resting place for all for everything
that exists on its face. And we said for practical purposes as far as we know that the creatures of Allah subhanaw taala are living on this earth and not on any other planet or any other spark. And I'm not sure Helene obame had Yes, Allah, Allah azza wa jal didn't make it that way. Well, how would it be?
If Allah azza wa jal did make it me had,
we would not be able to live on it, my brothers and sisters would not be comfortable, it would not allow us to build our life, to build a civilization because living on it in the first place is not comfortable. What would you do?
Your Earth was this way.
When you be able to do anything by Allah sake, we are barely able to do anything with regards, technically, almost nothing with the weather, even though at a certain time, they tried to play with the weather, right, seeding the clouds, and making rain come forth and so on. But it was a big disaster. So it was this report that's in the news, but we can do nothing about it. Similarly, we can do certain things with the digging and you know, bringing out water and, and petroleum or oil and things of that nature.
But if it wasn't for Allah subhanaw taala structuring and making this person we have, we can do absolutely nothing about it, this is a missing
part of what makes me happy.
Right? Because you said that we have made the resting place and the mountains as stakes as
And what is a pig, it's a pig and a pig, we said does what is stabilizes whatever it is being used to stabilize, so the mountains are stabilizing the earth in what way stabilizing the outer crust of the earth, which is sitting on a huge layer of liquid. Imagine that this liquid is moving and this is what gives rise to the magnetic field of the Earth. Right? You have a huge
portion of liquid iron in the earth.
And if it wasn't for the mountain, stabilizing the crust
of the Earth,
it would indeed move right
down the middle layer, color, shape and height and fly me out of the row as you enter me the lead me right? That we have made these Earth these nozzles on the earth wide, so that it will not move or sway with view. And if it's worth it with suede this way, if the customer is constantly moving in this way, it will also make like this, right? But Allah azza wa jal made the earth we had, partly through algebra, which are acting as as pegs that are stabilizing the spirits. My dear brothers and sisters, this is
1400 years ago, who would have called the lopen, a pink,
maybe for a lot of people, without knowing this reality in the spec, they wouldn't even know how to compare it to a mountain. Because it didn't occur to them, that the motion is acting like a pig on the earth.
And it is stabilizing the Earth.
This is even harder to deduce that most of the mountain is below the earth.
I never, I never call the mountain that is under the earth because I don't see it.
That's not immediately obvious. That becomes immediately obvious now because we know it and we understand it it is become scientific fact. But how do you come in as someone several 100 years ago who had no idea and you asked what do you think maybe the huge part of the muscle is also below the earth you might see your face
for where you get that and there's no proof for that. That's not immediately obvious, right? Do you agree with me? That's not an immediate deduction.
But you get that from the fact that Allah azza wa jal called the mountain Sphinx.
Subhanak wahala Conoco as Roger and we created you in pairs
The first immediate and obvious meaning is that a must, to Allah
created us as males and females, right? This in itself see all of these blessings brothers and sisters, in order to understand
the beauty of these blessings, you need to imagine with regards to each one that it is not available anymore,
that you have lost this blessing, then you understand it. Why? Because we've taken these things for granted. Right? The daily things, and as we don't read the Quran, and Allah reminds us constantly that it is a blessing. So we forget that these are blessings that Allah says you made it this way. It could have been another way. Doesn't have to be this way. Again, it's not immediately obvious, but allow me to this way, because he did his part of subjecting everything in his universe to you.
wasn't Rebelo wahala as Roger that he made us in pairs as males and females. That's not immediately obvious what
80% of the earth were men
and only 20% for Women disaster.
This is just one example. The issue of males and females, Allah azza wa jal has made it this way. Why did Allah create the males and the females all from one soul
so that they can be second
they'll be killing each other. Only 20% were women, the men would be literally killing each other, right, because of how important women are.
And hopefully men are also important to women. But
Allah, Allah created the male and the female is widely this school. So that there can be second, so that there can be tranquility amongst you.
And Allah, between love and mercy, this is all part of the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala that He has created us males and females are created all males
then left wouldn't continue, or all females, like the buck continue, right? Because there wouldn't be no reproduction, humankind would
This is that type of males and females. Otherwise.
There's the other also possible opinion, which is as well done here means
different kinds. Right? For sure. Lavina.
there as wasn't doesn't mean why do they love her husband, right?
So bring together
those who are wrong.
So that's when take the wife, along with No, Allah socialism wasn't.
This doesn't mean that
the wife is one of the things one of the best ladies and women of this dunya. And for hours, the worst man of this dunya, right.
And has nothing to do with wives and husbands.
meaning the same, was also done.
Right? And what they used to worship, this is the meaning. Similarly here, it could be an
halacha as well, that we've created you in many different types of pairs, right? We've created Allah azza wa jal created the toll on the shorts, he created, the beautiful and the ugly, right was created.
The the poor and the rich, the second, the healthy, all of these different pairs, all of these different kinds of all win win.
So that humanity needs each other, and benefits from each other, and help each other and learns from each other wahala as well. Right? Even case you all the same.
This is a blessing of Allah, Allah, He made each of us different. It's amazing. It's really not that many components of our physical features forget the personality if you have the personality. Forget it. Two twins have different personalities, right? But we're just talking about even
just physically. It's really not that many things eyes, nose, lips, ears, right? Have a pair of these components. You have these trillions and trillions of people and practically no one looks like the other
They all look different for all practical purposes
as we have made
your sleep, and means for rest.
Sleep is another miracle my brothers and sisters, but again, we take it for granted.
We no longer ponder or deliberated about it one day, just sit down and ponder over sleep, believe me, you find it amazing. It's literally a miracle, which is this amazing space.
You can't really describe it as life.
And neither can you describe it to me, you're not alive.
In the sense that you're living, I can't talk to you anymore, right? You can really hear, you can see me
But at the same time, you're not dead, you're alive. Within an instant, if I shake you, you'll be
safe between death and life.
Which until now scientists are trying to completely understand and they're not completely understanding it. But but they're there, they're, you know, they're trying to describe certain parts of it, you know, the first part of sleep, you're still very close to being awake. Later on, you go deeper to sleep. And then there's a strip they call I think REM sleep, which is a very deep sleep, right? All of these different things, but for all practical purposes, and they were just still barely scratching the surface. And technically,
it will be very difficult to understand it for the following reason. That when the Jews ask Prophet Muhammad wa salam, about a roof, the soul with Aluna, carnivores will not be
right there asking about the soul, say to them that the soul is of the affairs of
my Lord. And you have not been given up knowledge, but very little.
Part and parcel of the mechanism of sleep is
the soul, which leaves the body, what are you going to understand about that hour you're gonna describe the soul leaves the body, as we know.
And it may go to different places. But when Allah azza wa jal decrees that you are to wake up,
it is brought back into your body, it's something amazing, really. And if Allah does not bring back your soul,
you don't wake up anymore. And this is why, because it is a state that is between life and death. It is called the liner death.
Right? It is, indeed the mind is a reminder of this.
I told you in the past, that someone takes your picture while you're sleeping, you've never seen yourself while sleeping allows you to see a picture I'm sure
you can. It's not possible, right? Even if you look at a mirror, your eyes are closed, you have to have someone take a picture for you. Look at yourself when you're sleeping, it's an out of body experience.
Just looking at yourself, and it reminds you of that Subhanallah when you when we will all be sleeping under the soil
until the Day of Judgment, it is a minor death. And this is why when you get up after sleep, the Prophet Moses Allah Alhamdulillah
Praise be to Allah, that He has given us life after death. Right.
so this sleep
amazing. But even more so that it is the obligatory
portion of rest that every human being has to take.
If you want, you can even say that many people,
including many Muslims claim
This is how important sleep is. Some people are slaves to sleep whenever they get just
you know, they start to get a little bit tired.
They want to doze off.
You ever tried to
resist sleep? Very difficult, right? But I'm sure everyone has done it. Because everyone has gone to college, and everyone has studied and everyone has had to stay up for exams, and even pull all nighters. But have you ever pulled an all nighter for Allah?
Have you ever resisted sleep in order to pray for your Lord or to recite Quran resisted sleep?
Not that I'm awake, no, sleep attacks you.
And you're about to sleep. And you're trying to wake up every way. But students are here finding it difficult. Have you ever resorted to water
in order to wake up, this is what some of the setup used to do. When they would get tired in the PM, they pick some water and splash it on themselves, right? Wakes you up refreshes you try to resist, don't be afraid to sleep. There are people who barely sleep a few hours of the day. Why? Because something is always on their mind.
If you just recently come up, or you have some predicament that you cannot handle, you will not be able to sleep. Some people when they have something really important the next day, they're not able to sleep,
they are able to sleep for all practical purposes for most people that except for me,
is an indication that there's nothing worrying you
unable to sleep if
people are different. Some people they just cannot sit in the thinking the whole time. They just sleep just doesn't come.
For many of our past generations, they couldn't sleep because the only piano was worrying them. They were thinking about the piano and standing before Allah subhanaw taala which
Allah has made it as what is made it a means for
every one must rest the strongest man in the world. And the biggest despot in this world must sleep. And this is why the famous Arabic saying says
weeping for a volume right from Yun fixators his sleep is worship.
This is the time when they will not be able to slay anybody or torture anybody or wrong anybody.
Also imminent that's what has to sleep by sleeping for practical purposes worship he made it Allah has made it so bad.
it comes from the word servitor Okay, and
gives you the meaning of copper. Right?
This is why if you say somebody,
okay, it means he has shaved his head, right?
upon cutting off, what are you cutting off.
For all practical purposes, you're cutting yourself off from your environment, right? And from the people around you. It can also mean that you are cutting yourself off from worries from fatigue, right? All throughout the day you're working and you are
diligent and you are doing things that are tiring you and fatiguing you, you are cutting yourself from all of the fatigue of the dunya
the obligatory route
that you must take that your body needs so that you can get back up again and continue on the path and on the way to Allah subhanaw taala This is why make your knee or even your sleep. You're not sleeping because you love to sleep. But you're sleeping because it's absolutely required to do without it. I'm sleeping Oh Allah so that I can rest and get up again and worship you and please you and make Dawa and learn and do something for this religion. Right? Make the intention that even your seat is for Allah. So
linguistically also means rest and sukoon and so on. Yes.
Relationship? Absolutely. Because
Allah, forgive whatever they say that Allah, Allah doesn't represent the will of Allah.
But Allah azza wa jal commanded them not to work on Saturday, right? The Jews don't work, rest, relax, cut yourself off from that this is what's called a self
And this is why
the mother Rosie says that some of the atheist at his time
said that the arm
is redundant. It's repetitive, what is what?
So that in itself as the claim means
or rather, so.
Now, that doesn't make sense. As a clip, of course, we discuss the beauty and the economy.
shoes that you get from the word so that being cut off from all of these things cutting yourself from, because it's required and even imagined, forget, Okay, forget rest for a while, let's say for all practical purposes, you're able to continue with your whole life without slipping.
Just theoretically, that your body can actually manage. Okay?
On the personal level, wouldn't you like to stop at one point and just cut yourself off? You did not say. Otherwise, if you're just going on.
Like people who have studied for hours and hours, eventually they just want to take rest. Right? But how do you take risk from being alive in the first place? Other than to die? Basically, you take a risk, you take a pause from life, right? And that's why when you get up again, you're gonna fresh it's almost like you're starting over.
We don't realize the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala until we deliberated over it and we considered absence, which comes to that was Leila.
We made your sleep we made the night as clothing. Leila,
One possible meaning second, okay. Second, meaning
a time again for rest or resting. Right. The day is usually
connected with work, effort, fatigue, right. But
usually as it should be, at least, the night is a time to rest, just to you know, kind of relax, the body starts to relax. And it happens by the way, immediately. Subhanallah the night sleeping at night is different than sleeping the day. If
you haven't tried it, you probably don't know it. People who have done graveyard shift and night shift in their respective work. Know that sleeping the day is not like sleeping at night, being awake throughout the evening. If you sleep your regular eight hours in the day, it's very difficult to stay awake all through the night, as you say, awake all through the day. Just the the the the scene of nice rites of darkness helps to bring about sleep, it's a time of rest with Darla Laila.
Of course, the best we know is clothing, right? And here's why Allah describes the husbands and wives as clothing for each other.
Right? We have lives and wise our clothing for each other. What does that mean?
Does that mean that you know my wife wears me on the outside and goes outside or the other way around?
What does it mean? Well, then you have to go back to clothing. What does clothing do?
it's protected from heat and cold, right? So it's a covering in a protection. The nice is also a covering up protection, and you get this covering from another area.
A lot of those swore by the light
will lay either
by the nice when it covers
a sharp cover. So the nice covers covers us with darkness. It's covered by also
hiding us from each other to a certain extent, of course now with lights everywhere. It's not the case, but in the past, and in places where there's no light. Absolutely.
And this is why in some situations, for people who are trying to flee, let's say some despot or dictator or some criminals, the time is nighttime. And this is why the criminals work at night. It's a covering right yes.
here comes from can be confusing or conflating two things
can can come from covering because when you confuse someone, it's almost like you are you know, covering him up and not showing him the truth. Right. So covering the truth, but he is that may be where that's comes from. But when you say the Arabic language, okay, it means confusion. Okay.
That means is confusing him. He's misguiding him
In one way or another, is commanding them don't confuse truth with falsehood and vice versa with the other Laila,
by the way, this covering can be the covering that we just spoke about, for us as individuals and it can be a covering for the whole earth also, right. Because for all practical purposes,
the day is merely the time when the sun is shining on that part of the Earth where you live, right. So, you are enjoying the light of the sun.
And this is what we call the but if you go outside
the atmosphere and into the heavens you'll find it starts because the the original state of the universe is darkness.
But when Allah subhanaw taala decrees the night
this lifetime covers
it covers it up, because then you have
not only the the immediate darkness because of not having the sun, but also the darkness of the universe. So the earth is completely engulfed in darkness, the Leela Devesa it is indeed a cooling recovery for all of the earth.
And we have made the day for livelihood.
Again, it comes from it
comes from living, okay, or making a living, okay, it's a time for living meaning it's a time for doing all of your work, walking around, going around whatever it may be, all of this usually is to be done during the day.
Before the time of electricity they use to make ultimate use of the day and sunlight. Right? And this is why you have something called daylight savings time. Right? Why make use of the daylight instead of using electricity that takes money make use of the natural light that doesn't cost any money, the sun, all of this light that it's giving you
doesn't cost you money. What if we have to pay for every hour during the day Allah
Allah has given me see like during the day, and then as the beneficial life
Natasha it is the time to go about all of your livelihood, your your livelihood, this way.
And now I'm Asha meanie, you're gonna see him in fugly
This is a time for people to go and seek the bounty of
the time when Allah azza wa jal has made and facilitated for us to go about our livelihood and our provision the time for us to live and to work and so on
are there any questions or comments
unique style of
the best way to answer this
Absolutely. Let me let me say this let me say that
changing the subject doesn't mean talking about something unrelated right? I think what you mean to say it's still very much related and the relation is indeed that and this is why I was mentioning is right, we'll get to it in the end when we finish inshallah this this portion, right. What is yeah, of course.
Why did Allah position Why is he bringing all of this up to talking about
after talking about
after threatening the moon
Why is he talking about?
Allah is purposely
counting some of his blessings for them and reminding them of it. Because when they remember these blessings, and when they see the
amazing ability of ALLAH, so just to create all of this unnecessarily when you read all of this,
and I asked you, this user, this brother, did you make
this you create us in pairs? Did you bring about the night and the day? Did you do any of this? Right Are
believe it? And we concur, but the disbelief or disbelief? So when he said when he reached in the middle of them, you had a thing? symptoms? Yes, there is this, and this, and this and this one after another. And then eventually, he reminded me again of the Day of Judgment, the one who has done all of this will resurrect and will hold you accountable. So it's very much related. But the immediate convict has been changed by this.
What is the best way to answer people?
Absolutely no other
life and things that you can see and understand, right? They have judgment for practical purposes. Right. It's unseen.
I haven't seen it. I can't quite understand it. Yeah. But these are all things. That's why Allah, Allah is always speaking about things they can see in front of them. And they know, and this is the issue of deliberation and pondering, because we know this, and we, you know, we're living day in day out. But we don't ponder over it enough. Right? I mean, this is strong.
For practice, as far as I know, not not a Muslim, definitely, when he went up, and he saw the moon just hanging.
And he said to himself, there must be a God.
This is a discovery for him. Is this the first time you see the moon hanging, but when he wants to outer space, above the moon or above the Earth, we just see that hanging around the space? It's almost like a discovery right?
So and he came to the conclusion as if it is something that must be
colloquially, language, right, for all practical purposes, but the idea is that it is indeed when you start to deliberate over it.
That is truly amazing. Yes. Sleep This to me is the fact that this this earth is like a resting place. That is amazing, right? That Allah azza wa jal has made it for me this one
of the questions
becomes, is there a God that you're worshiping? Can he do any of these things?
Show me what your gods can do. Right?
This is the creation of Allah, show me what others besides him have created. I'll tell you, zero,
they've created nothing.
Nothing, not enough slice, a table
that I like.
about the resurrection.
And he goes, and he started speaking all along. Remember, what I told you about the relation between here and so he's always, always always connecting this with miracles that you can see, right? Nature,
living miracles, right.
And then he speaks about worship, sometimes, immediately after one another, sometimes from one to the other, to speak about the Earth or the universe or the heavens and then he'll say, he'll talk about worshiping Allah, then he'll go back. Because there's so
intertwined. You cannot separate them from each other. This that you are saying, you, you you, you absolutely confirm that this is the creation of Allah worship the one who created this
