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

says these questions that's not

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

still they won't believe

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

some changes that nature

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


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

When someone becomes a Muslim

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

woman to a better human being

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

even if you that science and every

00:05:18 --> 00:05:18

on an

00:05:22 --> 00:05:22

app some

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


00:05:28 --> 00:05:31

our science firms would believe.

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


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


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


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

that angel as a messenger and that we would believe Allah says, if you were to send an Angel, they reject him.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:24

With with no longer leave them on Earth would take them out, we would punish them because there's nothing more evident than that. Allah says also according to the laws that Allah created for this world, when Melaka ledger Allah Allah.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:35

If the Prophet were an angel, you would have put him in the shape of a man for human being, because humans cannot handle angels.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:51

We humans in our weakness, we cannot handle dealing with angels one to one. You cannot the prophets of salaam when you breed would come to him and this was not a complete encounter. And to Greenwood

00:06:53 --> 00:07:37

conveyed the Quran to him, the prophets I send them would would shake and would sweat and sometimes it would lose consciousness. It is so heavy Allah says in this little delicate covenant, Tila, it's like the revelation encounter with Angel is extremely heavy humans can't handle the salah says if we were to send an Angel, we would send him to the shape of a man. And they would still, you know, have the same argument. Allah should send an aid and tells you this is a loophole. This is a vicious cycle. And it's basically just a matter of it's a bluff, and simple bluff. These people have already made their minds up, and they just come up with excuses. It's just like when someone tries to sell

00:07:37 --> 00:07:59

you something, you don't want to buy it. You come up with an excuse you say, you know, I don't like the color. Right? I don't like this color. What color do you like, you know, if you get with a smart salesperson very insistent, you get in trouble. Say I like red. I'll get you red. They go to the shelf me go red. Now you're stuck. Right? You say you know, but I don't like the design.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:41

You're not going to buy it. He can go 1000 times to the storehouse and get you some stuff get you whatever he thinks you want. But you already don't want it at all. Are you coming? Oh you're communicating to him is what excuses. People who reject the truth when they see it face to face when it's clear to them. That's what they are doing. So with that what Allah is saying here to the prophets of salaam don't waste your time trying don't kill yourself, trying to convince them. Once you have explained the truth, Allah says here, I think we have COVID This woman also Selena Hillam, over shooting on Monday. We only send the prophets and messengers, as

00:08:43 --> 00:09:01

Bringers of good news and warnings as all they do they clarify the truth. I said, so much of a human woman shall have it up for whoever wants over wishes at the belief or whoever wishes that in disbelief. It's up to them at the end of the day. It's your own decision, and you will be judged by means of that. So

00:09:03 --> 00:09:08

that's what's what really, that's what it really does. It explains and we said explains what

00:09:10 --> 00:09:25

guidance really is. I think we jumped forward to show how Allah Subhan Allah says for example, first of all, 125 from a URI now we do realize that Allah wants to guide a person might expand their chest, so it becomes receptive to him.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:47

So it's not the man is the man is in the heart. First and foremost. We said there is this the essence of humans This is the fatwa which naturally accepts the truth. If the person sees the truth, then they rejected

00:09:48 --> 00:09:54

the conclusion inevitable conclusion is inevitable has been corrupted. Is it fixable? Yes.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

It's either covered by some

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

which Allah scream julabo

00:10:02 --> 00:10:07

which are the sins which are some false ideas for ideas, desires, etc.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:25

Or it could be some serious damage that has really created to the fatwa. And it requires serious renovation in that sense. But still, there's always hope as long as the person can still breathe. It's always there's always a hope. And this is why Allah, Allah says in surah 218.

00:10:26 --> 00:10:55

Look at the halal Canadians. As an example, we oftentimes when we quote this verse, When do we refer to say, Allah created man upright, humans walk upright, other animals walk on for the walk on their belly, right? They crawl, etc. by humans, Allah created them upright. Their image is the most beautiful image, we talk about the physical world. And this shows that in these times, in this day and age, we have a very serious inclination.

00:10:56 --> 00:11:22

I'm imbalance and bias towards physical outward aspects. If you go back to the diversity of the scholars, you will find many of them mentioned in Santa Fe isolated when they say, inside, spiritually, emotionally, humans are created in their pure shape which we set the football that is accepting naturally is receptive to the truth.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:43

And Allah says, From Mara, that the nervous philosophy that we turn to human to the lowest of the longest, meaning humans depart this perfect creations, pure nature, they leave it and they go down to what is philosophically they depart their data,

00:11:44 --> 00:11:54

they start being people of desire, we start developing this ego right before the animalistic side of who they are.

00:11:55 --> 00:12:08

And when they are functioning from that place, when you give them the Quran, it doesn't give them guidance, it increases them in misguidance. Not because because the Quran gives him his guidance, but because the person is receiving it with the wrong tool,

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

so they're going to misinterpret it.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:26

So this is basically what sort of and this is the core message of salting. So let's see, I think we stopped by Las Panatela, talking about himself throughout the surah. Allah talks about himself on and off, on and off, on and off.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

Here, Allah presents Himself to us,

00:12:30 --> 00:12:35

in a divine attempt to awaken our

00:12:37 --> 00:12:38

divine attempt that we can offer.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:48

There is since especially when we talk about nature, we talk about the mountains, the skies, the storms,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:54

the seas, this unnatural, almost virgin nature.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:06

Still, like hasn't been changed, drastically changed. When humans connect to nature, by the way, generally speaking, this helps them

00:13:07 --> 00:13:47

come back to their knees, somehow come back to their nature. And this explains some common history and said that this explains why Allah subhanaw taala prior to giving Prophet Muhammad Salah sentiment, the message he calls them to do to withdraw from humans and spend time where it's been time where on top of a mountain, contemplating nature getting close to the edge. Very interestingly, interestingly, even to me, and I'm allowed to Anna who was really like, he was a genius, intellectually, he was a genius. But he was also a very devout human being. And he would get overwhelmed with so much like his daily schedule was full. He was battling

00:13:48 --> 00:14:33

people of people who were basically casting doubt costing innovations and began his understanding, etc, on Islam, and he was fighting people who were having false practices of Sheikh of polytheism. So he and he and many people conspired to put him in jail and set him up with the, with the governor in central premise, so much trouble and he had to deal with all of that it was his life was extremely, extremely busy. And sometimes that affected his focus. And what he would do like his students will pay him says that given to me you would leave the city walk out into the desert by himself and spend half a day or a few hours. And he says, I find that Allah there. What he means

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

basically, when I go there, I'm able to connect with Allah.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:59

So that shows why Allah Subhana Allah designs the images or signs of the Creation around us and most of them are nature. pure nature around us unadulterated nature around us, because that sort of weakens us. And we all feel that when you have a walk, even in a park, or walk in the woods, you actually feel way better. You feel pure. You feel you have come back

00:15:00 --> 00:15:30

Back to Nature, if you're if you're more relaxed, your mind is clear, that shows we resonate with this world around us. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Surah about himself by means of helping us reflect, look at this magnificent creation, look at the system within the organization because everything is serving a purpose, and everything is working in harmony all together. Look at all of that, where did it come from? It came from Allah, then Allah subhanaw taala talks about himself how much he knows that even a leaf falls off a tree.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:49

It falls according to a record that there is knowledge about this, there is this point in time for when it falls or where it falls and how it falls on you said and how it disintegrates and what it decays and disintegrates into. And what's going to happen to those atoms to those molecules.

00:15:50 --> 00:16:18

They're going to be mixed with the soil, the noodle will be absorbed by probably another tree, then maybe they'll become part of a branch or part of another leaf, and so on and so forth. All of that is written there is nothing like, again, when we humans do something, by the way, there's a lot of randomness. We take account of something, we put some things together. But there are things that just pop up right there or things just just happened by accident with Allah that doesn't work. With Allah, there's no accidents, because everything is made from scratch.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:39

There's nothing that happens, by the way, or on the way no things are happening, that happening. There is a way there is a purpose man, there's an intention behind them, even the smallest, smallest things, the insignificant things. It's the world is designed to the to the smallest.

00:16:40 --> 00:17:11

identifying objects that we can that we can tell that we can reach we humans, every every everything is there purpose is functioning on purpose, and design. So Allah makes a reference through the natural world to himself that this is your community and this is Allah. This is one who designed you this is the one to one who sent the revelation to you. Meanwhile, in this course, allotments Allah explains to Prophet Muhammad on Sunday, she says to him, focus on the people show positive signs. So Allah says, for example

00:17:18 --> 00:17:23

what you got to eat and verse number 68, he thought I'd eaten the DNA of whom I had never heard of one man.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:42

You see, those people were just arguing and messing about when it comes to our science, no versus even don't separate them. Until you know, unless they are speaking about something, okay, something else is something all right. And then Allah Subhana Allah says in other places,

00:17:44 --> 00:17:49

law directs profits and losses just to pay attention and to give the Dow

00:17:50 --> 00:17:53

what what ended up letting

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

you know, in recent only doing even even when he

00:17:58 --> 00:18:13

was number 51, and warn with it, advice with it, those who fear the Day of Resurrection, they will go to the mosque, they know that they have no protector, no Guardian other than Allah and no one is going to save them from the hospital.

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

So that they may benefit and developed out of this. So salted Ananda again keeps

00:18:21 --> 00:18:27

talking about Allah subhanaw taala himself there is a first that we have to point out which is extremely powerful.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:45

Allah says this number a wonderful one and one or two.

00:18:47 --> 00:18:57

But the reason I want to withhold the MA according to what I don't want them to come the most popular Shimanami conditioning, after speaking about how he says rain causes

00:18:59 --> 00:19:04

plants to grow and etc, creation and how the fruits

00:19:05 --> 00:19:07

become ripe and ready for harvest.

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

Allah says He is the originator of the creative the wonder, the concept of creativity. It's one of the attributes of a

00:19:18 --> 00:19:39

collaborative creativity. He brings things beautiful things purposeful things come from nothing. Creativity. So Allah is the idea of Salah was not here, but he's the one who originated the heavens and the earth. And now you're gonna know how come you claim a Sunday?

00:19:40 --> 00:19:49

Good. So he's addressing different types of disbelief. Those who are associated partners, those was quite a Sunday open understand what I'm talking to him.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

He doesn't have a wife. Because this is Allah gave you a wife as a human being I'm gonna give you a spouse he gave her husband, a wife and a wife or husband is because you can't

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

You know, manage life by yourself. You can't reproduce and have children

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

is you need that's a weakness and insha Allah complements that completed

00:20:11 --> 00:20:21

by helping you with another person. So that's a sign of your weakness, Allah does not need that Allah is eternal, and oh what is the first, the is the everlasting

00:20:23 --> 00:20:27

it is need that you need that because you die, you need the human race to continue.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

So he doesn't have a wife.

00:20:33 --> 00:20:40

He created everything. And he knows everything vertical. That is

00:20:42 --> 00:20:49

your Lord, after describing himself to us on the basis, that is Allah your Lord.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:16

No one deserves to be worshipped. But no one deserves your attention. Through attention, devotion, love, no one deserves that you live for. There's no goal that really deserves the love for but Him your life is about Allah. That's how life should be. That's the meaning of life and Allah, Carly, hopefully she in the creator of everything fagu worshipping festival.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:28

That's the point. So in a sense, this also summarizes so rather than address number one or two, that is Allah your Lord. No one deserves your devotion

00:21:29 --> 00:21:33

to worship Him, the creator of everything. So watch

00:21:34 --> 00:21:48

before him a lot, who had a condition, okay. And he is takes care of everything. He's the one who's in charge of everything. Then he talks about himself that will recall I'm sorry, are you driven upside?

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

Sites cannot catch on.

00:21:53 --> 00:21:54

The sides can't catch you.

00:21:56 --> 00:22:10

This is why the Muslim scholars have argued because I assume that the people who believe in the Quran and the Sunnah they agree that the believers will look at Allah on the day of judgment Allah would allow them to look at him

00:22:11 --> 00:22:12

allow them to

00:22:13 --> 00:22:26

craft some says Oh ALLAH says we'll do all your might even now the law in our behind our faces that are ready and shiny. In our behind you looking at

00:22:28 --> 00:22:33

the profit source a memo says in a say, in a concert or on a rock back home?

00:22:35 --> 00:22:35

Come out?

00:22:38 --> 00:22:38

Or come and

00:22:40 --> 00:22:40

learn it and

00:22:42 --> 00:22:43

you should see you

00:22:45 --> 00:22:58

as you see the moon in the middle of the moon. Now too long when I feel it is no like clouds between you and it's so crystal crystal clear. The scholars have have a discussion.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:21

Does that mean their their eyesight will catch on? What does it mean they will be allowed to look at online because the prophets Allah sent him when he went on the journey of an Islamic allied actually Allah and I asked him he was very curious about that journey specifically seven or eight Allah did you see Allah the profits as I'm saying no run into

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

problems? Light? How could I see it? How could I see?

00:23:28 --> 00:23:38

So this is solar. They say they all agree that the believers will look at Allah. But Will their eyes perceive Allah as he is?

00:23:39 --> 00:23:55

As a very big question there's no there's no definite answer to this there's no definite answer because Allah says he learned to recall absorb and this is called the arm this is a general statement there's no exception to it or says the sides cannot

00:23:56 --> 00:23:59

perceive him cannot capture him.

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

You see that for example, you look at this bottle your your eyes capturing perceive it right

00:24:09 --> 00:24:10

with a lot size

00:24:12 --> 00:24:21

you know sometimes with the creation, I mean if you look at the ocean, you your eyes cannot capture the ocean, you can only see parts of it. Sometimes when something is extremely beautiful,

00:24:22 --> 00:24:25

your eyes cannot perceive it completely.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:40

Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala here again describes Himself and He says, giacosa decided on the topic of guidance and the beautiful beauty here about guidance or proofs in the Arabic language are also called pasa.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:45

Pasa is a plural for pulsera or bizarre.

00:24:46 --> 00:24:47


00:24:49 --> 00:24:52

is referred to in Arabic language as site

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

as seeing

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

as see it shows the power of the proof

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

that whatever proofs Allah sent, if you are upon your pure human nature, they are enough for you to see. They are enough for you to see,

00:25:11 --> 00:25:15

to see. And this is why the believers then we say a shadow.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:17


00:25:19 --> 00:25:29

a shadow means eyewitness means I have a personal experience. That's what you testify to, you know, something without a doubt. No one deserves to be worshipped. But

00:25:31 --> 00:25:49

this has to come from the heart, it has to be a personal experience, call it realization, personal realisation, personal experience, we feel, you know, again, we Muslims like to sort of, you know, brush over it. Yeah, Allah is Lord, He's the Creator, we worship Him, we make it an intellectual method.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

Be careful, that's very shallow.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54

That's very shallow.

00:25:56 --> 00:26:13

The reality of faith is deep down, you didn't need to dig deep. You know, you need to have this personal experience. The personal experience does not come from you memorizing words, and principles, and rules. All of those are helpful, but it comes from you doing what

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

a better to

00:26:16 --> 00:26:17

worship of your heart,

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


00:26:22 --> 00:26:36

And that's basically to, for example, reflect on the Quran, find the meaning of the words of the poem and you understand them intellectually, find that meaning located in your heart, it is there.

00:26:37 --> 00:26:46

Find the matching piece of your heart to that upon so that, you know that we're on first experience and a few those who are with us earlier in the

00:26:48 --> 00:26:55

past few times, if you remember, we quoted the millennium. He says the people Recital Hall of Fame is the result of the Von

00:26:56 --> 00:27:00

Neumann mania call upon the edgy do

00:27:02 --> 00:27:08

katiba to be obsessed of undefined, the words are already written and the heart

00:27:09 --> 00:27:12

already written in that. Okay.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:14


00:27:19 --> 00:27:30

there is two things I want to mention today that can help us probably maybe one you know, maybe we can conclude on the Saudi Arabian Sea. But these are two important points. The first one the story of Prophet Ibrahim and he said I'm

00:27:31 --> 00:27:40

gonna go back here to the story of Prophet and why. And many people misunderstand this. This is from verse number 74. To

00:27:41 --> 00:27:42


00:27:45 --> 00:27:49

With Hola, Ibrahim Ali, he has a lot to deal with cinnamon earlier in the

00:27:51 --> 00:27:51


00:27:52 --> 00:28:01

Ibrahim said to his father positive. Are you taking idols statues as objects of worship?

00:28:02 --> 00:28:09

I see. It's evident to me that you are new people are misguided. This is misguidance, clear misguidance.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:18

You might say why is it Rahim? So upfront, why is he so straightforward? Why is he so aggressive? In that sense? You will see he's not

00:28:20 --> 00:28:24

here. And we will see now the style of Dawa by Prophet Ibrahim and he is

00:28:25 --> 00:28:31

a Prophet Ibrahim Islam was in his teenage years. And that's when he received this revelation, guidance from one.

00:28:35 --> 00:28:56

Look at the style of Dawa. He did not come to his father and say, oh my father, I received revelation. Allah says 123 which we like to do, which would be a very robotic way. And we think this is how people believe. Let's see how profitable I am and how he conveys the message to his father and to his people. He says to his father,

00:28:58 --> 00:29:04

you taking statues, idols as objects of worship, I see you in clear misguidance that's obvious. misguidance

00:29:05 --> 00:29:16

now, he's causing some discomfort. But he's making his father think he's getting his father to think that he's scratching something something deeper than fluid.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:38

Then Allah says psychedelic cannot be Ibrahima, medical dissimilarity will hold the money according again unless we show him by him unless as we demonstrate ritual to put on him, the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And what it means basically how Allah is the king, let's Kingdom whether you're going to need so he is from the people have certainty and strong faith

00:29:41 --> 00:29:44

could help Ibrahim A Salam gets his power to think.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:47

And doesn't he doesn't give him text?

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

It doesn't give him text. Don't you see? He is making exclamations and questions. And that's the most profound way to get people thinking because people have an ego

00:30:00 --> 00:30:00

will have kibble

00:30:02 --> 00:30:09

we all have this, you know, sense of self esteem for you to tell me what to do. Who are you to point out my mistakes?

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

Or if I if like someone approaches me and says, you know, you made a mistake, automatically my mind my gut response is going to be on you have mistakes as well, right? I'm gonna you know, pick them out. That's an that's that's the animalistic part. This is a one year by the way. This is the

00:30:30 --> 00:30:36

power of aggression with this tech beast side. So that response.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:41

But you're gonna bypass that. Ask questions.

00:30:42 --> 00:30:45

Make exclamations make remarks.

00:30:47 --> 00:31:05

You bypass that. There's no resistance. It's not that it's passive, but it's passive aggressive. But again, if you do it for good reason, and Sharla is good. So Raymond is what he does. For them. Imagine that he he made more I could go on and on be fundamental for that. I don't know what happened in

00:31:07 --> 00:31:08

when it was nighttime and why

00:31:10 --> 00:31:16

he's with his father. And probably some of his people who worship idols. What does he say?

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

He sees a planet.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:32

He sees a planet, it looks like this small, tiny Islam actually looks like a star right? But from the old days, they could tell a star from a planet. So then so planning, he says

00:31:34 --> 00:31:42

they'll not be he says this beautiful creation. It's above the high above it brings slide. It's magnificent.

00:31:43 --> 00:31:59

Maybe this deserves my worship. Some people think this verse some people think that Ibrahim actually was searching for Allah and he thought he thought that the planet could be what could be the what deserves worship. Some people think that Ibrahim actually

00:32:01 --> 00:32:18

actually was looking for the true God. And he went through a process first he thought the planet was God then he thought the more than evil the sun. And then he arrived at the conclusion not must be greater than that. But that's a wrong understanding of the verses. Because at the end of the story, verse number

00:32:21 --> 00:32:23

83 Almost says Metallica who

00:32:25 --> 00:32:25

go away.

00:32:27 --> 00:32:32

This is the argument, the convincing argument we gave it by him or we taught him by him

00:32:34 --> 00:33:08

against his people. So they blame Islam was doing he was getting them to think not by telling them I know the truth. But he played the part like one of them. So that's a beautiful object in the sky. Shining Light. Wonderful, so high. Maybe that's what I should worship. That's what I should love. I need to devote my life to something and that should be right. But then obviously when Fajr time comes right disappears. He says no, if it's a god it would not disappear go away just because some other light came about.

00:33:10 --> 00:33:20

That's not the right so he's getting them to think he's getting them to think because again, the worship idols the worshipped Sun Moon stars, some of them worshipped other things.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:28

And then for them for them model and perma bears on planet I thought it would be nice, although

00:33:29 --> 00:33:50

it's much, much more light, much more brightness, much more size to the moon. And generally speaking, by the way, in the ancient times, they would associate them on with beauty. Not so in these times. And in the past. And it's still in some cultures like in the Arabic culture still like if you want to say

00:33:51 --> 00:34:02

someone is so beautiful is so beautiful, like the moon phases so beautiful like the moon even we have for example, but you will probably allow

00:34:04 --> 00:34:10

when he prayed in the midst of during the boycott when the President commanded the Muslims to boycott after the Battle of the book.

00:34:13 --> 00:34:25

He said when the news came that Allah revealed some verses forgiving them. He said I came to the nest and I saw the prophecies and I'm smiling and he said what can I either Heiko either partisan, can now alter part

00:34:26 --> 00:34:30

of the prophecies have a smile on his face was like the moon.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:35

So so he saw the moon right when he saw the moon he said,

00:34:36 --> 00:34:40

maybe that says my worship. That should be my look.

00:34:41 --> 00:34:59

Right? And these people are watching and they're thinking what's going on with him now? There was the planet yesterday. Now it's the morning, it seems it seems to have a good case for the moon. But then either the moon disappeared or it was daytime. You can see the Moon said

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

eliminate phantom fellow caller, the enemy has never been

00:35:04 --> 00:35:05

led self.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:15

if my Lord does not guide me, my true God does not guide me to himself. I'm going to be lost chasing all of these objects thinking that they are my Lord, my Creator.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:20

Then it was daytime phenom. Well, I should have said, as

00:35:22 --> 00:35:31

he said to the people that were around him, wow, look at the sun. The moon is nothing like the sun. He says maybe that's my this is what I should worship.

00:35:35 --> 00:35:40

Her the accomodate this is bigger, this is greater for them, for me in the building.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:43

So when they sit

00:35:46 --> 00:35:51

like Oh, my Lord comes and goes and runs by a mathematical equation.

00:35:53 --> 00:35:59

You know, you go because these are some of the objects they worshipped. He said, you know, whatever you guys worship,

00:36:00 --> 00:36:10

sun, moon, stars, planets, idols, all of these things, they have their limitations. I have nothing to do with that. I'm gonna I'm gonna, I'm gonna look for the true God.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:32

And that was his introduction to them, that caused them to think, how do you worship something that disappears? How do you worship something that doesn't benefit you? And again, don't think these people were stupid, because sometimes when idol worship is presented to us, it's presented in the most naive, basic way, when we think these people were stupid was it was so obvious, right?

00:36:33 --> 00:36:42

No, there was a philosophy behind it. And we know that from a narration that occurs as health care from birth, they allow

00:36:43 --> 00:36:51

that, and you will find in the books of difficile, as well, many versions of it, that were they were righteous people, that Allah created them, that

00:36:52 --> 00:36:54

God Allah in the Holocaust, where he barely

00:36:56 --> 00:36:57

managed to throw

00:36:59 --> 00:37:15

fish to Allah to share them. Because I didn't want to say, I created all my servants upon the truth upon footrot upon the true religion, then God pushed them away from it. So having an ambassador Lama says, Can and national on metal Island Islam,

00:37:16 --> 00:37:25

when they deny them, either no hotshot or 10 centuries, or 10 generations, or we don't know exactly what they mean by balloon

00:37:27 --> 00:37:32

from Adam to Noah, but then can we get a view of original signing.

00:37:34 --> 00:37:35

But without him,

00:37:36 --> 00:37:40

without a righteous person died, they would create, erected

00:37:41 --> 00:37:42

a statue, why?

00:37:44 --> 00:37:48

To remember the righteous person in order for them to be inspired to worship Allah.

00:37:51 --> 00:38:07

And eventually, they thought that these statues had still retained some of the righteousness of those people. And then this righteousness was mixed with divinity connection to Allah, they are intermediaries. And then they slowly slowly acquired divinity.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:28

So wasn't that simple. So when they were worshiping God is not just like, this is just a stone that was meaning behind that stone. There was philosophy behind this. So that's what they were worshipping. So everybody, man, he said, I'm says all of that, that you guys are worshipping or thinking is God, or is a representative of God or is a symbol of God, I have nothing to do.

00:38:30 --> 00:38:38

And he made a very good case. And again, story, Ibrahim is longer. He even gave him a dominance demonstration. When he actually destroyed

00:38:39 --> 00:38:42

they went for hunt, he destroyed their idols,

00:38:43 --> 00:38:57

and kept one of them. He got them to think because they came to him to do destroy them. He said, No, it's the biggest, biggest one of them. Look at the axes right hanging on his neck, it must be him. Right? These are gods, you seek benefit and good from them.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:06

To think and the Quran, Allah mentions this specific point.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:09

So what's what was the style of profitable

00:39:10 --> 00:39:36

then we had Jehovah, Allah to her journey. So he says in your dashboard here in the default personality will have the honey for woman and she became even more at this time. He's still not still not very expressive. He says, I turn my face to the One Who created the heavens and the earth. I'm street among the best street after him, and not for business associated parties to ascribe any likeness to the creation.

00:39:39 --> 00:39:54

He's still very rational and very, like it's very neutral, that we're still very neutral, saying all of what you worship has issues and problems. Only seek the One Who created the heavens and the earth because this is connecting, we'll be

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

connecting lordship the fact that he's the creator, to the fact that he's the one

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

The one that he deserves all devotion, we came from him we go to him and a one will

00:40:06 --> 00:40:23

get from him, you know, go back to him so we have to make our way back to him. So he says that's the one I seek. Still he does not name Allah subhanaw taala yet where Jehovah is people argued against him fiercely. To help Juni flyover Canada now he revealed

00:40:24 --> 00:40:26

you arguing with me

00:40:27 --> 00:40:38

all your blindness that I've made, obviously, like, made obvious to you all that blindness, you argue with me when Allah has guided me to games.

00:40:39 --> 00:40:42

Now he tells them about the loss of data so clearly

00:40:44 --> 00:40:55

when they resorted to threatening in force, he said what I have imagined in Michigan, I don't feel any harm coming to me for whatever reason.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:09

unless Allah has written some harm to me, it comes from Allah. For those who speak Arabic they might misunderstand this by the way, whether or not you should be gonna behave in yourself, don't be shy. If you translate this word for word you're gonna get the meaning

00:41:11 --> 00:41:29

is why your language or translation cannot be word for word, it has person has to grasp the meaning and translate the meaning not the words. If I if I always translate this literally listen to how it sounds and I do not feel the partners yourself I do not feel your gods

00:41:30 --> 00:41:32

except what Allah wishes for me to feel

00:41:35 --> 00:41:44

that means I'm going to fear some of your gods which Allah allows me to or Allah permits to speak to me in a sense this is not a bit confidential and is this

00:41:47 --> 00:41:47


00:41:48 --> 00:42:02

in here does not make an exception for mobile payments and previously it establishes that up so he says what I what I have on my tree gonna be I don't feel what you associate as far as nothing

00:42:03 --> 00:42:05

what I feel is what Allah

00:42:06 --> 00:42:16

causes me to feel what harm Allah principle allows to continue see the separation is clear. Is that clear for the Arabic speaking people

00:42:19 --> 00:42:25

what's your Adam be community name and my Lord has covered has encompassed everything in his knowledge effort

00:42:27 --> 00:42:29

to remember remember what

00:42:33 --> 00:42:34


00:42:35 --> 00:42:42

come on like this is a word of the brand we have this story full story now he's saying to them Don't you remember? I fanatic

00:42:45 --> 00:42:51

what is there in the story at what happened in the past for them to remember that would cause them to believe

00:42:57 --> 00:43:01

Yeah, but even if they remember that it's not gonna give them anything

00:43:06 --> 00:43:08

once you recover you're supposed

00:43:10 --> 00:43:15

to recover your photometry recover you human nature. I'm trying to awaken it for you

00:43:17 --> 00:43:19

trying to make it feel FNR doesn't go

00:43:21 --> 00:43:27

now if they remember as you said if they remember the arguments they had what does that mean we disagree with them anyways

00:43:28 --> 00:43:37

he's he's he's mentioning something that she they should remember which makes them agree with what he's saying. That's the thought and this is why the Quran is called 10th Kira

00:43:38 --> 00:43:40

musical reminder

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

you're reminded of something you already know.

00:43:46 --> 00:43:46


00:43:47 --> 00:43:49

reminded of something. So what do you know?

00:43:52 --> 00:43:57

I have to accommodate you. Have you gone by the agreement to watch for communities

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

helping you read Quran with the Quran does this help you recover that and then it feeds more into

00:44:07 --> 00:44:10

definitely tilicho what Kiva have Oh my gosh.

00:44:11 --> 00:44:26

How come you want me to feel which you know what you want to see upon us with the stones, the sun, moon fear those things? What to have fauna in the commercial? Octone Billa hemella municipios, Donna and you guys are not scared that you have associated partners with Allah, the Creator of the heavens and death.

00:44:27 --> 00:44:44

What sense do you have? Just like today, when someone says to you prove God exists? That's that's an that's an altered that's like a flipped logic. That's a flipped logic. Why?

00:44:45 --> 00:44:57

Because you don't need to prove a lie. He's more proven than anything else. But the reason it seems as though you need proof of God, because humans departed their nature.

00:44:58 --> 00:44:59

If you

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

Go back to your human nature, you don't need proof of existence as a given. It's more evident than you then your existence

00:45:09 --> 00:45:12

is why even a phenomenal claim? He says,

00:45:13 --> 00:45:20

You cannot seek a proof for the proof of everything. He says Allah is the proof that everything exists.

00:45:21 --> 00:45:28

How come you are asking for proof from these things that exist that Allah exists? He says, That's reversed logic.

00:45:29 --> 00:45:32

But why does it sound so counterintuitive?

00:45:34 --> 00:45:38

Because the human nature, the pure human nature, we have been conditioned

00:45:39 --> 00:45:40

out of it.

00:45:42 --> 00:45:47

We've been conditioned out of it. I'm very careful using my words here. But sometimes I'm tempted to say

00:45:48 --> 00:45:54

all of what we go through education, culture, etc, is brainwashing. It takes us away from our people.

00:45:57 --> 00:46:02

And then we assume or on average human beings, so things should make sense to me. Now, sorry,

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


00:46:06 --> 00:46:09

program, when you need to do

00:46:10 --> 00:46:16

is what it wants me to do. Because the process also to know prior to receiving the revelation, the program

00:46:19 --> 00:46:30

started playing out from the people spending more time by himself trying to recover his own nature Flipboard reflecting thinking, asking the populations trying to get away from any kind of external influence.

00:46:32 --> 00:46:39

Any human growth Finally, any proper human on Earth has to go through this process of have to decontaminate.

00:46:41 --> 00:46:46

And this is something about humans and about systems thought systems, they call them

00:46:47 --> 00:46:54

mind models, mental models, you call them frames, frames of mind.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:08

Right, they call them preferences. worldview, this is a set of ideas that somehow compatible together, they create a unity. When you subscribe to this,

00:47:09 --> 00:47:15

you're blind to anything that doesn't agree with it, and you are blind to its own faults.

00:47:17 --> 00:47:23

Culture is afraid. If you have grown into a cultural by the way you bought into it, you don't see it.

00:47:24 --> 00:47:44

This is why we're reading we see this the logic of the people crying so stupid. Come 200 If you can travel through time, 200 years and the future you're gonna look at our people, this time, the most intelligent ones that they seem to have compelling arguments. And this is like there's no logic like this, you got to see them as the most stupid.

00:47:45 --> 00:47:48

But from within, you can't see these things. That's the problem.

00:47:50 --> 00:47:58

That's the problem. That's why you have to take responsibility for pulling yourself out from external influence that it's been working

00:47:59 --> 00:48:08

for so many years to the point that has shaped you and you're not even aware that you are using it to think of yourself and to think of the world to us

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

as what

00:48:14 --> 00:48:23

you say I don't have anything else you have your photo and it's somewhere inside to dig deep the best thing that can help you do that is read this with reflection

00:48:25 --> 00:48:32

read this not as you read a textbook, read it and search for the meaning that you read there search for it in your

00:48:33 --> 00:48:34

search for any

00:48:38 --> 00:48:43

invest in investing, you can still see how this kind of work is this and this

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

will give you the same message

00:48:49 --> 00:48:54

and some of them faciliate referred to versus all of our they said this is what it means and nothing

00:48:57 --> 00:48:58

belongs to creation

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

an ummah

00:49:04 --> 00:49:05

was killed from

00:49:07 --> 00:49:09

that just like lock in the key.

00:49:13 --> 00:49:15

Okay, so we bought him his approach was

00:49:17 --> 00:49:18

nice to

00:49:19 --> 00:49:23

try to provoke definitely

00:49:25 --> 00:49:40

try to activate it somehow. And then what does he say? He says, How can you want me to be secured of your your nonsense all this nonsense? That doesn't have any real consequences? And you're scared that you are violating the rights of the Creator

00:49:43 --> 00:49:47

who truly deserve safety and peace inner peace

00:49:51 --> 00:49:54

does he say and Medina Hammond would it be to be sweet men and

00:49:57 --> 00:49:59

those who have believed that they did not associate

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

yet did not mix their faith, their email with

00:50:06 --> 00:50:10

injustice, which is here, shake it just a second. So

00:50:13 --> 00:50:19

these are the ones who find true safety, peace, peace and safety.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:34

And he shows that humans by the way, you can get the whole money in the world, all of the fame in the world, you can become the most famous person, you can get everything you desire, and you will not find a piece of the

00:50:36 --> 00:50:36


00:50:37 --> 00:50:41

impossible because the heart was created for one thing

00:50:43 --> 00:50:44

to know Allah,

00:50:46 --> 00:50:56

love him, expressed that love by seeking Allah, connecting to him, and finally arriving at him. That's the only way the heart can find peace.

00:50:59 --> 00:51:05

Anything else that you think is gonna bring you peace is nearly some sort of drugs, intoxicants.

00:51:06 --> 00:51:27

And what is the hallmark of an intoxicant or an addictive matter? Every time you need more of it. That's when people who have money that they can't spend even for 1000s of years, if they spent if they spend like crazy every, every day, they still will need 1000s of years to spend their wealth, they still won't become

00:51:30 --> 00:51:31

the only thing

00:51:32 --> 00:51:34

that will satisfy your heart is.

00:51:37 --> 00:51:43

So you can be the richest person in the world and experience the true riches and peace, but connected.

00:51:48 --> 00:51:55

Right, so this is the story of Prophet Ibrahim. And he's, we saw, again, it's in line with sort of the rest of the soil. And he brought him on he's

00:51:56 --> 00:52:13

understood the dynamics of guidance. So instead of instructing his people, a worship Allah, that's wrong worship this, he called them to think in his attempt to dig deep and try to connect with the federal get the filter activated. But again, the screen was so thick

00:52:14 --> 00:52:26

that they resisted it, and they didn't accept his invitation. The second thing I want may reduce the multi dimensional lawsuits and that's, and that's I'm going to pose it to you as a question first.

00:52:28 --> 00:52:29

Allah starts mentioning here

00:52:32 --> 00:52:33

issues of faith,

00:52:34 --> 00:52:35


00:52:46 --> 00:53:06

Verses verse number 180. For Konami, Medicare is more likely going to be at immediate aid from what animals that were slaughtered a meaningful law was mentioned on them upon slaughter, if you truly believe in his sights as faces Well, mela comanda Kurumi Malamute medical school Allah Allah he will cut for some

00:53:08 --> 00:53:09


00:53:10 --> 00:53:16

and what's wrong with you? You hesitate we're hesitant to eat from what was slaughtered in the name of Allah.

00:53:17 --> 00:53:19

When Allah has kind of refined to what is how long

00:53:21 --> 00:53:25

unless you know you're in extreme cases where problems allowed you.

00:53:27 --> 00:53:40

So Allah talks about this, then Allah says have verse number 120 whether or violent eighth name about enough and leave the band, if sinner evil, whether it's obvious or subtle,

00:53:42 --> 00:53:43

because many evils.

00:53:44 --> 00:53:49

People don't feel anything, any aversion to them when they are subtle. Right?

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

So we find people for example,

00:53:56 --> 00:53:59

cool, like if they miss the sooner before the holiday,

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

that would go into like history and history of pain and regret.

00:54:08 --> 00:54:09

But they can sit after sort of the whole

00:54:11 --> 00:54:20

backbiting someone for two hours, not feel anything about it. Because this is a hidden subtle sin, whereas that was obvious.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:33

So, Allah says, leave all of evil and sin whether it's obvious or subtle, those who earn sin and evil, they shall be recompensed with it, we shouldn't be giving it back.

00:54:34 --> 00:54:40

Then Allah says do not eat from animals that were slaughtered without the mention of the Name of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:54:43 --> 00:54:43


00:54:48 --> 00:54:51

Allah makes reference to people to the other people

00:54:52 --> 00:54:57

that have jumped to festival 146 where generally we live in a heavy metal I mean it healthy will

00:54:58 --> 00:54:59

follow that in

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

exactly where that you should get in and

00:55:04 --> 00:55:15

their crops their harvest and their cattle, sheep, goats, cows, camels, four legged animals that they cultivate.

00:55:17 --> 00:55:22

They gave a share it to Allah and they give a share to their idols.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:35

Again, because these people used to worship the idols as intermediaries to Allah, so they would give Allah share and they would give these statues or idols Islam, Bashir, right?

00:55:36 --> 00:55:45

Eventually what was assigned as Allah share would still go to the idols and what was assigned to the idols would not go to Allah meaning

00:55:46 --> 00:55:54

regardless of how this manifests itself, but then Allah the following verse 137, Allah says, Okay, daddy, because the Unity get here in Minaj at that point to

00:55:56 --> 00:55:57

do you got to do what he had.

00:55:58 --> 00:56:00

And so

00:56:02 --> 00:56:07

the idols and the Aegis system designed for those items

00:56:08 --> 00:56:12

beautified for many of those polytheists been killing

00:56:13 --> 00:56:14


00:56:16 --> 00:56:17


00:56:18 --> 00:56:19


00:56:20 --> 00:56:21


00:56:24 --> 00:56:24


00:56:27 --> 00:56:31

when a cow is pregnant, was the calf and conflict.

00:56:32 --> 00:56:40

Right, some for the males in the families and for the females, if it's dead, if it's alive, they have detailed law instructions and literature. Yeah.

00:56:42 --> 00:56:45

Why does it look so easy science says it's talking about a lot.

00:56:49 --> 00:56:51

The reality are the dynamics of what is

00:56:53 --> 00:56:57

previously eliminated to the players only eight from what the hospital was.

00:57:01 --> 00:57:02

You know, sort of,

00:57:03 --> 00:57:09

I would, I would say, is the atheism and polytheism bustah.

00:57:11 --> 00:57:21

Really, it has the seeds of the arguments that you can actually expose all of you know the nonsense of those other ideologies.

00:57:23 --> 00:57:34

Because just like the reverse logic of the people who buy heat, or you should be scared of spiders, you shouldn't be scared of Allah. What nonsense are you giving me?

00:57:36 --> 00:57:55

These days? People would say what like especially militant atheists they would say you know a religion it's all war it's causing people it's dividing pigs very defined divisive because it gets people to rally upon around one religion and kill one another like hate one another remove religion, there'll be no war.

00:57:56 --> 00:58:00

Right? They're acting from seemingly from a higher

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

but Allah is saying

00:58:07 --> 00:58:12

these public spaces and the system you worship, you don't know she

00:58:13 --> 00:58:19

comes with the world view comes from a Sharia law

00:58:20 --> 00:58:34

comes with legislation. Because happy that translates into Sharia beliefs translate into rules into actions and principles of behavior.

00:58:36 --> 00:58:40

The only pure data can bring pure legislation

00:58:41 --> 00:58:56

any mistake or any improper element in Elida is definitely going to breed improper behavior and legislation. You'll get the people associated policy with the law you can simply say they just they're fried at the mothership wherever they want to watch

00:58:57 --> 00:59:04

that said fine, that's going to lead to what leads them to kill their children and it did sacrifice the children

00:59:07 --> 00:59:12

studying messing up wasting a lot of the the sheep and the cows that they were started.

00:59:16 --> 00:59:29

The the Guardians, the patrons of the islands take a lot of money, they're supposed to be a devotion to these guys take it for themselves.

00:59:31 --> 00:59:42

But Allah is saying Hear me out either with even if it's not believing in God, it's gonna have serious consequences in your life. The more illogical it is,

00:59:43 --> 01:00:00

the more absurd the legislation is going to produce. And we know from the Nazi period, it's just as an example. We don't care specifically, a lot of the leadership, although many people say Hitler was a Christian Catholic, but he actually cried

01:00:00 --> 01:00:15

tactically he wasn't practically he was someone who first in religion, and opposed to people of God in general regardless, and most of his generals were actually atheists. And a lot of the scientists,

01:00:17 --> 01:00:29

influential scientists, then did not see movement, but actually atheists. And, and this is this is like recorded history this is like there's no doubt about this.

01:00:30 --> 01:00:48

They came to the point that any person with a disability is a burden on this thing's a burden on society. Because they need funds, they need help, they can't help themselves. They need some Krishna need someone to help them out. They need someone and the other leader What did they start doing?

01:00:49 --> 01:00:54

They actually started gassing those people in the gas chambers.

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


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

And they've they figured out

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

that a baby's born with deformities

01:01:05 --> 01:01:11

and then what they thought races other than the German race, the pure German race.

01:01:13 --> 01:01:42

Alright, inferior and they have bad causes because of you know, cousins marrying each other and, and because they are of less of a cost of that German race specific Geminis they're very specific about that. Right? And they actually they, they said, in order for you to be German, pure German, you have to you have to trace your ancestry from both of a sudden your father's side for six generations has to be nothing else.

01:01:43 --> 01:01:45

Proper German blood

01:01:46 --> 01:01:47

and if not, then

01:01:49 --> 01:01:52

you're gonna to pick in the big study the cost trading some people

01:01:53 --> 01:02:01

say don't produce cheap why? Because they said they produce people with inferior qualities women superhumans.

01:02:03 --> 01:02:12

And the ideology, no matter how people make it look nice, presented as nice. It comes with consequences. And sometimes they're not so obvious at the moment.

01:02:14 --> 01:02:18

So what Allah has sent you, any idea any ideology, any belief,

01:02:20 --> 01:02:24

it's gonna come with a lot of corruption, a lot of legislation.

01:02:25 --> 01:02:30

And this is why I said it's actually sort of sets the very powerful

01:02:32 --> 01:02:38

I'd say discussion about discussion with people, whether ideologies, even atheism.

01:02:40 --> 01:02:48

And it's not necessarily argument for the sake of debate, by the way, just don't don't interpret in this argument for the sake of stating the facts, and clarifying,

01:02:49 --> 01:03:12

you know, force on identifying and exposing arguments because what is really affecting, especially the youth is that they don't see the other side of those arguments that have been beautified, shown as science are shown as in a very intellectual and very well articulated, kind of, you know, arguments, but they don't see the reality.

01:03:14 --> 01:03:22

So it's very important to ground on ourselves consulted. And now, we won't finish up to date a lot next week, and that is Friday, we'll be able to close

01:03:23 --> 01:03:35

and drop everything together. But again, as we see this very, very profound, you could read the Quran and not see so much depth in it and not see not seeing so much material to answer to

01:03:37 --> 01:03:42

what's more than smaller. But that's because it's a shallow reading. If you dig deep in the blog,

01:03:45 --> 01:03:55

you really realize that the human experience has nothing to do with just sheer changing the exterior of things. But the arguments,

01:03:56 --> 01:04:07

a lot of the arguments are still the same. And the finance team has the answers to all of those arguments, even if there are purely no arguments. Why because it's the word of Allah knows everything.

01:04:08 --> 01:04:13

Okay, so this is it. Charla was shorter than the now and next week.

01:04:14 --> 01:04:16

We are going to

01:04:17 --> 01:04:30

complete something here and again for your presence and for your time. My hope again, you invest as much as possible as we are going through the solar investing, reading it yourself reflecting upon it, as I said, trying to read it for yourself.

01:04:31 --> 01:04:35

You read the benefits of this just in the last episode for graduating students.
