Tonight I want to talk about
the greatest miracle of all times.
And it is a part of this miraculous nature is that it's still in existence.
And that it is very precious as fresh as it was as if it was revealed.
No, not. Now,
before we proceed with that we must define a miracle. So, what do you what would you say is a miracle?
miracle. In Arabic we call more Giza.
What is a miracle?
When they say something miraculous will mean
something out of the ordinary
miracle is a little more.
It's a little more stronger than that. But something that is not ordinary, the miracles are not ordinary events, or activities.
unforeseen there there is that aspect to it.
There's no explanation. But there must be explanation. I mean, are miracles things are illogical or irrational. No, they are a
miracle or, by the way possible that events things are possible. They're not impossible.
is okay, if you take the word more than an Arabic word, it just means something that causes something to be incapable of
you know, that causes or make something,
lose its capacity, or it challenges something, someone's capacity to produce or to match to match it in any way or fashion. Literally speak or it means to be weak to weaken, or another word would be to disempower to disempower. That's what mortgages, or mortgage.
And mortgage, which we translate into the word miracle
is something that mankind is incapable of, of
It's not something that mankind perform
is something that
a miracle is something that happens by the will of a loss of habitat by divine intervention.
For if human beings or you know, ordinary people are capable of producing it themselves, then it's not a
it's not a miracle. So a miracle is something that happens.
Someone might say everything happened by the little bit last time, when I talk about something that happened by the will of Allah, we're talking about something that happens by divine forces, divine intervention into divine forces. And it is an incident or an event. That is, sometimes you know, the word that is used as supernatural, supernatural acts or events are considered to be miraculous in nature.
Now, in order for a miracle, to be considered a miracle, it must fulfill five conditions condition number one, it has to occur with the command of a law or in the name of a loss of habitat, and with a command of a law.
So if someone claims that he is the cause of that miracle, he himself and does not attribute that to a law, then we can't call it more user, we can call it a miracle.
It could be magic, it could be anything else, but it's not a miracle. Right? So they have to attribute it to a loss of data and it has, it must happen by the curse by the command of a law number two, it must be out of the ordinary.
So if someone comes up with something that is ordinary that anyone else could it doesn't matter.
If someone says, Yeah, I've been an illegal alien in America for 25 years, and I'm doing fine.
Millions of people who can do something like,
you know, so there is nothing out of the ordinary.
And by the way, I'm not being facetious or sarcastic, I have nothing.
But someone actually wants came in, told me that, that this pious person that he knows,
has been an illegal alien. And he considered that to be a miracle that he's never and he was, he was never caught. Of course, he wasn't talking about someone in America was talking about someone in Saudi Arabia.
For those of you who know, Saudi Arabia,
it cannot be performed,
again, by any other person or object.
It must not be something that someone else performs. Of course, there are some miracles that happen every day is a miracle. Right? So when the sun rises, that's a miracle. childbirth is a miracle.
We are, you know, miraculous, if you look at us as human beings, you know, the way we were created, because, because it took divine force, to to produce to make to make us into creators, right. And we're not talking about that we're talking about a specific type of mortgage that, you know, that that we are about to discuss tonight. Number four, the fourth condition is that it must occur at the hands of the person who claims Prophethood.
That is, so if something is playing, you know, if a supernatural act or event takes place, with someone who is not claiming Prophethood, we don't call it Marchesa, we don't call it miracle. We call it something else. There's another category of supernatural acts called karma. For example, if a pious person, by the way, supernatural acts happened with prophets, they're called miracles. If they happen to pious people, you know, it's called karma. Karma. If it happens with even,
you know, unbelievers, you know, sometimes someone might say,
something's something of a supernatural nature happening with someone or to someone is not an indication of that person, or it's not a testimony to that person's piety, by the way.
So for example, even a wicked person could survive a very, you know, horrible car crash and come out of it
without a scratch,
then that is not necessarily an indication of that person's piety or any special connection.
And when it happens with
a non pious person or a non believing person, it is cold.
It's a sign from a loss or warning, you know, someone survives a very severe crash or something of it happens.
Okay, number five,
the act must match the claim of the Prophet, the person claiming Prophethood. And
it should not refute, or contradict his claim.
What does that mean? If a man comes, you know, says I'm a prophet, right? And I'm going to make this and points points to a cat, for example, I'm going to make I'm going to have this cat speak and tell you who I am, and the cat will speak.
That is indeed out of the ordinary, and they're always in the capital T I am the profitable or that he is a profit of a lot.
Let's suppose that the cat speaks, but instead of saying that he's a prophet of Allah, it says that this man is an imposter. He's a liar.
The cat basically refuted his his claim, he cannot come and say, Oh, wait a minute, I still made the cat speak.
That doesn't work. So if a prophet says that I'm going to do something, or if people request for example, the people that move they requested a she camel
and the Prophet said, okay, she will come and the sheep cattle came out of a rock out of, you know,
out of nowhere, basically out of the rock and she came and came, that was miraculous. had
their you know, when they asked before she came with to come out if he produced a male camel or a horse instead, that would have not been American. So it must match the claim.
So what is this greatest, ultimate miracle? And by the way, there is one more thing that we need to add miracles come as a challenge. They come as a proof. They, you know, to the truthfulness of the Prophet who's claiming Prophethood. But also they come as a challenge to those who reject that Prophet, meaning those who, for example, Pharaoh and he rejected Moses.
He had no remember what he did. He said, Oh, what you what you brought is magic. Black Magic, sorcery, whatever, right? these tricks, were well aware of it, I have magic. I have the best of magicians in the world, and they're going to defeat you. So there was a challenge between the two. Right?
And of course, fair last, and the magicians who saw that and they, they understood, and they they knew that what Prophet Musa alayhis salam brought what has nothing to do with magic, because they know what magic is. They knew that that was from Allah, they submitted and they accepted Islam, and they became believers, right, instantly. Instantly, they became believers. And Pharaoh actually ended up executing them, killing them, because they embarrassing basically. Right? So magicians became believers, when they saw a miracle happen in front of them overnight, and they became martyrs.
They became martyrs, they gave up their lives, because of what because, you know, for their belief. So this is the effect of miracles on people. Only when people understand and connect with a miracle.
Now, the greatest miracle was nothing that has to do with a rod turning into a snake, or a blind person being cured, right? It wasn't over that time, it was a different time.
And it came as a challenge.
And that challenge was never matched.
And it is over, you know, it is almost, you know,
over one 1400 years old, you know, but it's still as fresh, and as vibrant. And as, as
as powerful as it was revealed.
And that is the poor and
And tonight I intend to speak about the miraculous aspects of the planet because when we say Oh, the photon is the miracle the prophesies of them. Right in the forehead is miraculous. But yet we don't understand the depth of this miracle. And we don't understand the miraculous aspects of the plan, how is the plan a miracle?
We have so and appreciate that will help us to show our appreciation for and and connect with it with a light guy. Now it was intended for the for the for and to be the miracle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Since because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his message was the final message. And it's a message that will that suppose that will last until the end of time. So and the process is the last prophet. So his
miracle, or one of his miracles, or the greatest miracle of the parcel, Eliza, as it's called, stated, had to be something that is eternal, something that is, you know, ever living, it cannot disappear, or die with the death of the popsicle, Eliza. Now if you examine other miracles, for example, Prophet Musa, the miracles that he brought, where are they? We don't see them. We just hear about them, we read about them, but the miracles ended with the life of Prophet Musa so the miracles came to.
Same thing with the miracles of Prophet asen. Right? all the miracles are the prophets and many of the miracles of the prophet of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah, they said, except for the main, and the greatest miracle of his which is the four and it had to
even it had to live beyond the profit center, wireless and alive, because it is the miracle that came as a proof for the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his message.
And the miraculous aspects of the poor and has to be understood by those who believe in the poor and have to be under appreciated, and they have to be conveyed people have to understand why we believe that the Quran is miraculous. It is miracle It's a miracle. This actually the fact that I'm holding a copy of it right now in my hand, is a miracle.
take into consideration
Consider how much attacks and how much efforts and how much money is put into fighting. And, and, and, and maybe getting
rid of this of this book and this message, how much effort was put into it from the time of the Prophet until our time. It is indeed a miracle that we have a copy of it.
If we had one single copy of it, that would have been America, we have millions, hundreds of millions of copies of it, not only do we have copies of it, written copies, but we also have over 10 million men and women who have it memorized by heart.
And that in and of itself is a miracle. For there is no book. Oh, sorry, I take that back. I don't think there is there is a literature of 10 pages, let alone 600 pages, I don't think there is a literature of six pages that is memorized by from one end to another that is memorized by over 100 people or maybe 1000 people.
And definitely there is no book, whether it be divine book, or otherwise, there is memorized by 100 by 10. People, I doubt that you can find a book that has memorized other than the n that is memorized by 10 people let alone 10 million men and women, most of whom do not speak Arabic.
most of whom do not speak Arabic, Arabic is not their mother tongue. It's not the first language. And the rest of those who speak, speak Arabic. They don't necessarily speak the classical Arabic of the grant. But when it comes to the poor, and they can read it from one end to another without making a single mistake.
I remember one time examining a brother from Pakistan, he was like 12 years old, and his nephew who's 11. He's only one year younger than that until and the nephew, I gave him a piece of paper written in Arabic. I said read it, they could not read it.
I said read the Quran, they could read the Quran from one end to another by heart. They haven't memorized. Now a single mistake.
If this is not a miracle, what is it?
Why? Why is the poor and like all these 10 million people came and conspired and they said, Okay, let's do this.
Who inspired them? Who gave them the ability who gave him the passion? Who made it? Who made it easy for them? A lot? Who says in the ad itself? What is ordinal or analytic? We indeed made the an easy to be remembered and memorize the Hellman with decades. So is there anyone who would
remember anyone is interested? Right? So indeed, this is a miracle from the last time.
And by the way, I find it to be even
to make the miracle even greater is that now we have performed. Born and raised in the West, we have you know, young brothers and sisters who are born and raised here. Arabic is not their first language, even their the native language of their parents is not their first language, Arabic of whatever dialect or do or, or whatever language their families speak is not there. There. They can't even speak that properly. They're English speaking, you know, born in America raised here. And we have we have them now compete in memorizing and we have a whole generation right now who's interested in what I was telling you about. My cousin was born and raised here and his
father's from Pakistan. His mother is my mother's youngest sister. And at the age of 12. At the age of 12, he administered memorization of the whole app. And they taught
it this is not a miracle.
So this is the operand that we're about to talk that we are here talking about. So Allah subhana wa tada says,
In Surah 29
50, and 51
I believe that is so true and Caboose
Waqar una una
de la law we're in
our meeting him and
him in a V danika. Metal with a chronic Tomi.
Can we turn on the AC?
So here's a here's an interesting story that ad relates to us. When the prophets of Allah they sent him came and told the Mexicans to follow
him for he is the final prophet. And he brought a message of salvation to them and to the nations of the world with the process and that brought his message. This is what they said.
And they say, Why are not miracles sent down?
To him from his Lord?
Are you with me? How come he doesn't have as many miracles, for example, as Moses, or Jesus peace be upon him? How come he doesn't have plenty of miracles coming every day?
where his miracles, the prophets,
did have miracles, physical miracles, many his companions, most of them, by the way, were observed by the people around him. Right. But the problem was not about you know, going around, you know, just, you know, showing physical miracles, because physical miracles did not make people believe.
In fact, the prophet himself said that many of the prophets who had physical miracles, right, they didn't have great following in terms of followers, very few people responded to them. So physical events, and miracles don't necessarily make people believe.
And the President didn't want,
So, if it was something that will make people believe, then Jesus peace be upon him would have had more than 12, disciples and followers.
Probably Moosa would have not been given hard time by his by his followers and his people.
The people, Prophet Ibrahim would have all believed the people of the moon would have accepted the message. And all of the other prophets knew
very few handful of people accepted his message. So miracle don't necessarily make people believe people have to. It is not even their perception, one of the greatest words of wisdom I heard today was, it is not a matter of perception, it's a matter of attitude.
Here, people perceive miracles, but if they don't have the right attitude, with toward the miracle, they're not going to benefit from it.
So when they said this, how come he doesn't have miracles, meaning physical miracles happening?
along said to the prophet to say to them, pull in the law, say the signs are only with a law, it is up to most of
what he never will be, and I am only a plane Warner, I'm a warner to you. I'm just here to warn you.
I don't I don't want to, I don't want to force you or impose upon you. I'm here to warn you. You want to take the warning, you're intelligent enough to take it, examine the words examine the message itself. And then, after establishing that rule, verse 51, the law says, I want to see him and
him isn't? Is it not enough? Is it not sufficient of a miracle for them that we have sent down to you or Mohammed, the book being recited to them, you are now deciding a book to them when you were non literate, you are unlettered
and overnight, you are able to speak those words. And you're reciting it to them. Isn't that enough for someone who has some intelligence.
So basically, this verse establishes that the greatest miracle of the process of the law is the front end, not only that, but this the the miraculous
dimension of the program will only be understood or appreciated by people of intelligence. So, what are there that, that we can actually talk about when it comes to the miracle of
the promise of a lot of time says, By the way, regarding the program, there has not been a single prophet except that Allah gave him miracles, because of which people believed in him. I have been given as my miracle way, the inspiration meaning of
which a lot of real to me, I hope, therefore, that I will have the largest number of followers on the Day of Resurrection on the Day of Judgment.
The largest because the Quran comes with compelling arguments, and, and compelling lessons. The Quran comes and speaks to the mind, not only the emotions, but to the mind
of Christ is very convincing and it's everlasting. So therefore, therefore, the prophet wants him is hoping and that is indeed what what happened and what will happen is that the processor will have the greatest number of followers on the day Additionally,
it may say me as as rahimullah, the greatest of all
Miracles is the for and that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam came with, for it is the religion of a lot and his speech. And it is the proof of the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
it is very, it's very revelation, the fact that it was revealed, is one of the most supernatural and extraordinary of Acts.
For it is the call to the worship of Allah and the proof of the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah they sent him and the miracle all in one is free, it's all in one. It's the all in one book, if you take the plan, the plan is a way of life is a, you know, constitution. The Quran is a declaration before, you know,
more immoral manifesto or ad is, you know,
a book full of lessons and wisdom and answers, concerns and questions. It is all in one. And it's the book of creed and after either principles and rules all in one, all in one.
In addition to that,
if you Josie,
one of the early scholars divided the miraculous aspects of the four ad into 10 categories, and that's what I want to share with you tonight. Number one, the first aspect of the miracle that shows
how miraculous the Quran is, number one is the eloquence of the poor and
which is superior to any human speech. Of course, this is something this aspect is something that you will only appreciate if you study the Arabic language, I'm not gonna say if you speak the Arabic language, but you have to stay the Arabic language, you have to be familiar with the classical Arabic language.
And if you study if you have some basic information about the Arabic language, the classical Arabic, and you read the poor, and you will come to the conclusion that that it is humanly impossible for an educated man to produce this, let alone a non literate person.
Impossible, impossible. Just the waste construct the eloquence of the poor, and it is one of the most profound one of the most apparent, and the reason is Allah Subhana, Allah sends to the atoms and the atoms at that time, they were known for their eloquence and their poetic abilities. And there comes an illiterate man or an illiterate man comes and challenges them with a book and they cannot produce it, they cannot match it, not even one verse, they cannot in any way or fashion, they cannot match it. What is poetry?
What is literature and poetry is constructing putting letters together, and then words together and making sentences.
Right? They couldn't do that. They couldn't match the prime. In fact, and when he
who was one of the, you know, one of the
biggest enemies of the province of law, they said him early on, he went to challenge the province all along, he would send them
and then the process of said to him, he went to the prophet and he said, Whatever he said, The Prophet said, Okay, let me let me tell you what I have to say. And the Prophet sent him by the way the person sent him his Dharma method was to recite the prayer. And
so he resigned the person the prime when he finished, and when he came back when he came back,
who set him they said, already, what happened was the outcome of the negotiations that you had with him and he said, What can I say? I swear by a law, there is none among there's none amongst you, who knows poetry as well as I do, nor can any compete with me in composition or rhetoric.
Not even the poetry of the gyms, the poetry of the gyms
I'm well versed, I know all of these things. And yet I swear by Allah, Mohammed has speech meaning the Quran they used to say Mohammed speech, they thought it was his speech, it was the speech of Allah. But he you know, he said Mohammed speech does not bear Any similarity to anything I know. And I swear by Allah, the speech that he says is very sweet and
is adorned with beauty and charm. Its first part is fruitful. And its last part is abundant, meaning that it's full of deep meaning.
And it conquers all other speeches and remains unconquered. No other speech can defeated. Its Congress. He said, yeah, we know who they are, I know what he said it will overcome, it will overcome and conquer any speech.
And it can never be conquered or, you know, overwhelmed.
And then he says,
it shatters and destroys all that has come before it's anything that came before it or comes against it, it will shatter it will just, you know, destroy tear into pieces. Now, this is a testimony from Anthony Maria,
who is dwelling in Hellfire as we speak, who is one of the winners of Hellfire, because he died as a as a declared as a, you know, enemy of the prophecy. But this is what he said, when they honestly asked him for his opinion, he said, This is what I have to say. And even his people took this up against him, they said, and he said, I know that you might take this against me, but I have to say what i what i what i believe
he had he had at that point at that moment, he had the integrity or he had the objectivity to, to basically let them know what how he felt. And then when there was so much talk about him, and what he said that day about him. The next day he came in, he said, Muhammad, probably you know, his belt probably got to me. That's why I said what I said. And he said, You know,
maybe I was under the influence
under the influence of his magic.
But this is what he said, and this was recorded, and you know, Arabs wouldn't a word comes up, and many people here and it's recorded, and it's recorded. That's it, no matter how much you you know, no matter how much you try to retract it or take it back. It doesn't matter. But this is what he said, this is the effect it had on him. And that's why don't be surprised if you find people or if you read in the history that people heard one verse, or they heard the suitor from the poor and from the mouth of the Prophet, and they accepted Islam instantly or immediately. And that happened so many times with so many of the Sahaba. And it's still happening until this day, it's still happening
until this day, people hear the Quran not only in Arabic, but even when they hear the translation, they get affected. I remember Open House last year, user or user was reading with a beautiful voice. He was reading and they were people in the back who don't understand the Quran. They were crying.
They were crying tears were flowing down there.
I met a person last year I met a person who came to one of the shields schools, the beautiful reciter he came to me and he said thank you, Allah guide me to Islam because of you. He said, How come I don't know you? I have never met you. I don't even speak the language to speak. He said I heard your recitation of sorts of capital. And when I heard it, it basically shook me.
So I inquired about the meaning of those words. He said, I didn't understand it, but I knew it was not. It was not human speech. So I inquired about the meanings of the verses. And when I found out what the meanings were, I accepted Islam.
One one surah. One individual, this is someone that I met and I saw him hugging the chef thanking Him and crying on his shoulder, saying it was your voice. It was your recitation that opened my hearts in my eyes.
I know a brother who accepted Islam. So I told him what what convinced you He said, The second verse of sorts of Bukhara, when Allah says any flamme in verse one, verse two, that he can keytab will already repeat, this is the book in which there is no flaw conflict or contradiction, period, he said, I put it down and I said, Nobody can speak like this except God, nobody, nobody will have that kind of confidence, nobody will have that kind of to make such a claim. So this is the
number two, the unique arrangement and organization of its versus sutras.
And the manner in which the words were arranged. Again, this is another another, another aspect that will be appreciated when you study the language of a crowd and therefore Anik style. Number three, the capability to produce anything similar to it by the disbelievers during the time of the prophet SAW a long while he would send them and those after them. And if the people of that time who had mastered the language fail to do that, then nobody else can. If the people of Christ could not and they had the greatest interest actually to defeat the
profits online isn't them and get rid of it's not once and for all, they're not allowed to flourish or to grow. They had, they had great interest in doing that they failed, and they were the masters of the language. So if anyone, if any human being wouldn't have been capable to would have been able to match the parada would have been the people of that time, because they had, they were the Masters, they were.
They were, they were the ones that produced the 10, the 10 greatest poetry in the Arabic language ever, yet, they failed. And if they failed, nobody else. And there has never been an attempt that except that it failed. Number four,
the stories and accounts of the nations and prophets of old since the prophets of Allah, Islam had no resources to such information, he had no new access to this. Those people who come in they say, well, Hemet copied the Old Testament. And by the way, one of the reasons I'm doing this is because you're going to hear this, you know, I had I had some visitors come here, and they're like, yeah, the core and basically repeated the same stories in the in the Bible.
That's very funny, because during the time of the Prophet, someone while I didn't send them, the Bible was not available, as far as I remember.
And the internet was not available. So what how did he How did he have access? Very few people, the Bible as we know it, or, you know, it was not available, it was not available. Even if the Prophet wanted to copy from it. It wasn't available in the way we know it as a book.
And those who say it was so rare, even those parts in those manuscripts, they were so rare. And you know, the oldest of them, they were discovered when they were buried hundreds of years before the Prophet symbolized send them. Right, the product before his done, and they were discovered recently in the Middle East. So where did he get? Where did he get the copy? And in addition to that, the manuscripts and the pieces that were available of it, right, we're in a language that the past president did not speak, letter and let alone read. And even if the Bible was available in the Arabic language, the pastor said and did not have the ability to, to read or write Arabic, even
Arabic. So how did I
copy all the stories from the Bible? And why would those stories differ? The for an example when we talk about the stories of the prophets, it doesn't necessarily agree with all the
someone got hurt.
Okay, so the poor and is not necessarily copy word for word. We know that many of the stories of the prophets, and when the time comes, the price tells us that that certain details that you find, for example, the Old Testament are rejected by the friend.
Right? In addition to that, what about those prophets that are not in the Bible? And one of the latest additions to this miracle? I don't know if you've heard about
you heard about the dead the Dead Sea Scrolls. Right? Okay. But after the Dead Sea Scrolls, right, recently in in,
Sinai, I think in Egypt,
a better one discovered,
discovered basically, same, same thing, very similar story to what happened. And when those manuscripts were examined, right, when they did forensic and carbon dating to those manuscripts, they date back 2000 years, which is what it puts. It puts those those documents that were hidden,
right, it puts those documents 500 to six years before the time of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah.
So they were buried 500 years before the Prophet Muhammad. Now, here's the very interesting part. In those manuscripts, there are stories and passages that are that are officially banned from the Bible. They are they are officially banned from the Bible. And if you want to look it up on YouTube, you can look up
a documentary done by non Muslims. It's not even is it's done by Christian theologians and scholars. You know, there's documentary called banned from the Bible.
One of those stories in those manuscripts that are banned from the Bible has to do with Prophet Selena.
It has to do with prophecy Lima and
What those manuscripts say about promise to lay man are not in the in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament, as we know, now, the official copy of the Bible does not accept those stories. But those stories are almost identical to what is in the plan
of house when a man had power over the gyms and how the gyms were subjugated for him, and how the gyms used to work for him and build things and do things, just exactly as the emphasis now is probably Mohammed copied from the early scholars from the early Christian or Jewish scholars, he would have agreed with them, he would have not said something that conflicts that, that 1400 or 1500 years later, is proven by manuscripts that they have of their Old Testament. In addition to all of this, you know what I tell them when they say, yeah, it is similar. I say that, if anything that is a testimony of the process I send them is a messenger from a lot. And that is truthful, because he
said and told us and the asset, that his message came from the same source
of the Old Testament, from the same source of authority and energy, and the team to reaffirm and confirm what is in the Torah and the original Torah.
He's not he didn't say the Prophet never claimed that he's going to bring something unique, something different, something that was never, you know, said or done before? No, he said, I am.
Right. So if anything, if that proves that the Quran, the Bible, the engine,
the gospel, the engine, and the Torah, the Torah, came from the same source, which is a loss of Hannah with that. And by the way, this meaning this this concept was understood by Najafi, the Lucas, the king of obsidian when he heard the Sahaba, which is a hybrid sided sword marry in the story of Mary and the birth of Jesus to him, you know what he said, he said, what you have uttered, which you have spoken right now, and what Jesus brought came from the same source,
because he saw the resemblance and the similarities.
And this is indeed one of the miracles of the part of the
number five, the predictions which occurred in the program, and which later came to be true. The Quran came and told, for example, one famous incident is where there was a battle, there was a battle that took a war that took place between the present Ian's and the Persians, the presenting is on the Persians in the Arabian in the northern parts of the Arabian Peninsula, where the two superpowers fighting over territories and, you know, wanting to dominate or control that Arabian peninsula. Right, but they are the presenting an empire, you know, was basically, you know, the Byzantine Empire covered areas from from what what we now know, know, as Jordan, Syria Sham region
that entire and Egypt, the northern parts of the, and the northern parts of the Arabian Peninsula, along with Turkey and all of that area. That's right, the western side, the east, the Persian Empire.
You know, we're basically the, the mighty Persian Empire was in control of the East, you know, parts of Iraq, like main, good portions of Iraq, and Iran, and all of that was under their control. And those two superpowers were always fighting they were they engaged in wars. Now, it was very common that the Romans would always be the representatives were supported by the Roman, they're, you know, they're basically one of the, you know, they're part they were part of the Roman Empire. And we know that the Roman Empire and the Persian, the Persian Empire fought.
The Persian Empire also fought with the,
with the many other empires in Europe. But basically, what was most common was that the Romans will win most of the battles. But here's what happened. There was a point
where, during the time of the problem was that there was a war and the Romans lost, they suffered a miserable defeat at the hands of the Persians. Now this happens hundreds of miles away from it.
And back then there were no mass media there was no internet, no DSL, no faster access, nothing, no cell phones, nothing. But there was way which is faster. Right and greater than any of those means of communication. There was why and the only person that has access to why was probably Hamas, Eliza, so Americans are sitting waiting for the news from the battlefield. Just
See what kind of changes will occur in the political climate in the area.
And the battle is not over yet. But as soon as the Romans were defeated as soon as they lost the battle, of course, for the news to travel, it would take at least three days for people to bring the news. As soon as their defeat took place, a lot of you for the purpose of the love and even send them the first part of sort of room in a room is the Arabic word for Romans.
me wooly with your movie Edmund out was on Min bodyholiday him sadly born feeble got a scene and in that in
that way, oh, maybe I mean, all of us Rila young Samia. These verses were added to the property. So the property side of them, and the Sahaba were so excited and thrilled. I was so excited. And the news travels through the mud through the mud because I thought that they finally got hammered. Have a look at him. He's making this kind of prediction, who said the Romans were expected to By the way, they were expected to win. They were at a better position, but they lost. So they said Mohammed is saying the home was lost, and that they will hope that they will retaliate and that they will defeat the Persians and another battle and few years. Where did he bring this news from, and they were
making fun of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. While abubaker was challenging them and he was betting with them. He said I would bet money, anyone. He was betting because he knew that whatever the Prophet said is true, and it will happen.
This is before Of course betting came home. I don't want to
I don't want anyone.
But I was betting with them. To him. It was an opportunity to prove that he wasn't interested in the money, but I would bet his money on it.
Then three days later The news comes
Romans were defeated the Persians won.
So the first part through came through the matter said Okay, that was just a guess. But the the verses the Quranic verses, made a statement, they said, Allah said, well, human body will have been that the Romans after their defeat, they will be able to
win another battle, they will be able to retaliate, and get their revenge. When how soon debugger is seen in the Grammys, few years several years builder is a number in Arabic anywhere from three to nine. So from within three to nine years, the Moran basically said, and to the veterans, that was a prediction made by Muhammad from within three to nine years, the Romans will be able to gather the forces and defeat the Persians.
And of course, that happened.
Again, a worker was betting with him again, that that will and that happened.
And I must have had that said and the believers will be happy when that happens. And the Muslims were indeed happy when the Romans defeated the Persians because it was a proof Not only that, because the Mexicans the Mexicans used to side with the Mexicans were pagans. And because of their ideology, and they were you know, paganism, they would side with the worshipers of the fire while the presentence or the Romans right they they basically Christians, you know, believe in one God and all that so, there was some kind of common ground right. And the Muslims were they were they wanted those who believe although their belief in a lot is distorted they wanted those who believe in God
to be able to not to be defeated by those who worship or fire
So, that is an example of it and many other things of course number six the names and attributes of Allah subhana wa tada
and how they complement one another and how the creed the creed that the plan, you know, sets very clear solid, no contradiction, no conflicts, not even a single one. Number seven, the laws and the Sharia the for an came with the morals and the conduct that is called for and how they complement one another and how it is a comprehensive complete, basically set of rules that are not in conflict with each other. Now, no single no person, no human being can write a document in which he doesn't contradict himself or contradict his opinions.
You know, but before an comes up with a set of rules that are so they're in harmony, they're complements, even those rules that are
you know, that came in
In a gradual manner, they complement one another. They're not in conflict with one another.
Number eight, the fact that it has been protected and remained unchanged over such a long period of time, despite the fact that all other religious books have been distorted or changed. The Quran is the only one that survived.
No changes, no alteration, nothing. And we're not talking about like, you know, of course, someone might come and say, wait a minute, but this key and the dots are not there. Yeah, that has nothing to do. The Quran was not revealed written to the Prophet It was written, it was revealed spoken, the spoken word has not changed. The spoken word is still there, it is still recited today, the same way it was recited during the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with Tajweed. And we still have people finding, taking interest and spending years of studying the proper recitation of the Quran of approximate lies. And not only is not only recited in one style, but in 10 complete different ways
or styles of presentation. And that knowledge and that science, which is very sophisticated, is preserved. And we have people specialize who are specialized in it. In fact, those people have a connected chain to the Prophet which is, by the way, another another miracle. You know,
two months ago, I was in New Jersey, I may have told you this, I was visiting a brother from India, who was an engineer, he works for ge. Sorry, yeah, he works with GE.
And on the wall of the living room, or the you know, I noticed an ijazah. And he has a basically I've told you about this, and he has a is a piece of paper, it's a it's a document, that is jazz, I mean certificate is a document where where a person certifies his student, his or her student,
with the recitation of the Quran, according to one of the 10 kilowatt.
And he they're the the the person the shape, or the teacher who's certifying the student with a state where he got his certificate and his ijazah from, and he will state the name of the shape of his shape and the name of the shape of the chair, and it keeps going like this. So he will mentioned the whole chain of reporters and scholars, all the way to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then to gibreel and then to Allah,
to Allah Subhana metab. So it is a chain of reporters, it's a it's a noble, honorable chain of reporters, that connects this individual who's certified with Allah,
through all these amazing people through the prophet gibreel, and then a loss of habitat, beautiful document, when you read it, your heart starts, you know, like racing, and you start basically getting when you start reading, especially when you come across names of great scholars that we heard about, and we read about, and this individual has an A connected chain to those individuals. So basically, and so I asked the brothers and where did you get this from? He said, My daughter, his daughter, born and raised here in America, right? Her parents came from India A long time ago. And she's born and raised here, somehow developed this passion and urge to memorize the Quran and
recited properly correctly recitation. And then she heard about this shift in Syria, who has one of the shortest chains,
connecting him to the Prophet. So she goes to Syria for for a few months, or for a year or something, and the study is under him.
And then when she perfected her presentation, he gave her that certificate, in which he states that she is now certified. And certified means that she can teach and she can certify, right, based on what he was certain, based on the certificate, or certification that he got from his chair. And then he names the shape of his ship. And he names all these people. So we know our sources. This and and of itself is a miracle. You go to any other so called divine book, you open it, it will say author unknown. And if it mentions the name of an author, that person could be a fictitious personality, we don't even know who that person is the Bible of Luke, whose look, we don't even know his real name.
We don't know the name of his father, we know the name of each and every single person who is involved in these chains. And how many of these kind of changes do we have in the world now, literally hundreds of millions, hundreds of millions.
if not hundreds of 1000s
then if not 10s of 1000s, then hundreds of millions change like that. All over the world. All these people recording the same thing.
Because when you have all these changes, you should have some kind of contradiction, but they all report the same thing. They all go back to the same source.
This must be a miracle. Number nine, the ease by which it is memorized. And this is known by experience and observation. But also it is known when we, you know, as I mentioned earlier, when you have over 10 million men and women in the world memorizing the plan, some of them are, most of them don't speak Arabic, and some of them are as young as like three and four year old, this must be a miracle. And you know, some of the oldest people I know have a sister who started memorizing the Quran at the age of 17.
After she raised her cousin, her great grandchildren, she wanted to do something for so she said, I'm gonna start memorizing the class, they told her Oh, you're very old, your memory is not going to help you. She said, I will try a muscle count I was listening, she finished the memorization. And in 10 years, it took her 10 years, at the age of 80, she finished at the age of 82, she passed away.
Malaga remembers that she passed away while making this a lot in her studio.
You know, she was praying during the night, and obviously she passed away in her
10 years, day in day out every single day, she will memorize a small portion of the Quran, and then revise whatever she loved whereas before it took her 10 years, but she finished the memorization of the
number 10 the deep meanings that are
that are present in it's in the Quran and the fact that the reader never tired of reading the Quran, no matter how many times he has heard it, or read it, no matter how many times
you read it, you'll never get bored. And so can a lot you may hear or read the same sort of over and over again, and many times depending on the level of your awareness and how connected you are at the moment. So Pamela, you may hear sort of so many times, and then all of a sudden, one day after years, or sometimes after, you know, 10s of years, you know, after 20 and 30 years of eating disorder, knowing it one day, a verse from the sort of hits you and then it opens your eyes and you were like, Oh, this is what it means. And it becomes so it becomes the news to you like well, I never paid attention to this. I have never looked at it this way. I remember, you know, a brother
one time Oh converted to snap, you know, came and he said he made he made? He made he made a comment. And I said Where did you get that from? Where did you get that deep meaning from the set from the crowd? I said From where? When he basically quotes a verse from the Quran, which I memorized. Maybe when I was six or seven. I know. Unlike some how am I you know what, I've never paid attention. I didn't realize it. I didn't see it that way. And I read that to zero with no, but I never saw it. It never hits me from that angle. And it was new to me. It was as if that verse was revealed that day, as if I have heard it for the first time. And this used to happen with us a habit
of one of my name when the Prophet passed away. And he salatu salam, Abu Bakr o de Lima recited the verse that talks about the profit and loss and death. I told him the profitable that
I said, it felt like as if it was revealed that day, I didn't even I didn't even realize that was there.
And this half is, the more you read the plan, the more you read the four app, the more of these kind of experiences and incidents you're going to have. And I bet you'd go ahead and try to read them for an MRI, the meaning and the state of the art. And see you just you will be amazed, you'll be amazed. So this isn't the greatest miracle of all times before and the book of Allah, now that we have this vehicle and we have access to it, what are we going to do about it? How are we going to relate to it? How are we going to represent?
And how are we going to present this this book because we are the ones who present the car and and we represent the brand, because people judge the operand or look at the examiner and through our conduct in our behavior.
The process of conduct was consistent with the plan and that's why I chose the law and I said that his character was of the poor and so this is this is the the responsibility that we have. Our actions have to be as miraculous as
our self control our self, our conduct our behavior. Our lifestyle should be as unique and as miraculous, and as powerful as the chorale. I asked a lot to make use of those who listen and follow the best of who they listen to. And anyone has a comment or question. I'll be more than happy to.
Of course many things could be said about Docker and Docker and has healing power to you know, a loss of a parent says when an animal or she fell off, it didn't mean certain fatty her has a healing power. If you're ever in pain or something like that, you can put your hand where
where it hurts and read, in fact, after yourself, sweets are too fat
is very comforting. In fact, there was a lot of research, scientific research done on patients.
Some patients that had that have had very serious illnesses and sicknesses, as well as some mental and, you know, patients, patients with some mental disorders and psychological disorders, and showed they were actually subjected. They were the Qur'an was they were listening to the program, they were made to listen to the plan. And most researchers basically were able to observe a great level of improvement, great level of significant scientifically speaking, statistically speaking, great and significant level of improvement
to, to the craft.
I even somehow I even heard this from a non Muslim, who scientists that said, that is due to the fact that, that, you know, words with spiritual with deep spiritual meanings have have very powerful and proven effects on the person's
immune system and defenses, basically. So it helps boost the person because it comforts you. And it causes the production of all kinds of I mean, it's
I myself, I'm not well, well
aware of the of the facts here. But my understanding was that that it helps it helps the body basically fight diseases and boost the immune system. Yes.
So I think it is indeed, indeed it is a loss paradise. So
we have a
nice few treatments, few.
by so many presses in so many countries.
And so it's vital.
I need a Christian, I tell them that I will challenge you that you go to two shops, in any city of the world is going Anaheim have you by to France from two different shops, bring two brands by two Bibles from two different shops,
the crown will be identical, the model will be totally different chapters will be different. stories will be different in the numbering will be different.
What we call the higher
the equivalent of it in the Bible will be different. And I've actually seen two different shops around by
actually, if he goes to that movie, the movie, the documentary might might even talk about how you find that some of those divine so called divine scriptures, you find
10s of 1000s of contradictions and conflicts, proven contradictions and conflicts in that you cannot reconcile it, you cannot even there is no way and we're not talking about things that might be
open for interpretation or difference of opinion. No, we're talking about clear cut contradictions and conflicts, anywhere from 30,000 to 40,000. Of those in one book, that's too much, too much, where you cannot reconcile the Quran.
Not a single one, not a single, you might find what what some people might say problematic to understand in a challenging, but they will not be contradicting. And even those verses where you might find, you know, would be like a handful, few verses, and those verses were placed like that for you to go and research the sooner which is the tool by which you understand the program. Because even the Sahaba had a problem understanding certain verses, because they didn't know what the meaning was, until the Prophet said explain it to them. So they understood but in terms of contradictions or conflicts, not not there is no such a thing. no contradiction or conflict in the
a comic artist mentioned that monster motivation. They're
pretty much the historical things.
I think, viral I don't know. Lots of things I mentioned like
Sodom and Gomorrah.
This poem is mentioned there is very predominantly so can you know
I'm actually doing some research on that. I haven't come to a conclusion. So my research, anything that I will say right now will be premature. So
Yeah, I'm doing I'm doing, I'm doing research, because sometimes the names are different. The biblical names are different from the names that you find in the plan. Not only that, because of that counts are different, you don't want to, but I'm doing some research, if I ever come to a conclusion shall definitely share with you. But one thing that you will notice about the stories of operands are an focuses on the principles, the values, the lessons, doesn't focus on detail. And in some other scriptures, you might find so much focus on details, how many? What color, what kind how tall? The brand isn't, doesn't discuss those details. Remember the story of the people of the cave?
How many there were 564? Why does that matter? That was a great that caused a debate amongst the scholars of the People of the Book. When the Quran came, and those verses were revealed to the Prophet, the prophet and cinema was told by a lot, they will say, and they will debate with you over how many they work, don't bother yourself with that has nothing me, or the job that they have even the dog you know, the dog that was with the people on the cape, there was a discussion amongst the early scholars of the People of the Book as to what kind of dog it was,
or what kind of breed it was, or what color was that animal.
So the Qur'an doesn't waste you know, you don't find you know,
beneficial information in the Quran. It doesn't bother you with those kind of details. It focuses on the purpose, the lesson, you know that that's what it focuses on.
Any question from sister side
