In the middle who want to stay in who want to stuff, when only we let him in Shoreham Christina will see it Hi Marina, you had to hit level for an animal doula who may have lived for her dear. Why she had to alert you know having the law of whack that will actually color Why should the animal Hamadan Abdo Rasool Whoa, well, that

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

so it feels sorta rad.

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

We said last time that

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

a loss pantalla starts with sort of the ride by talking about the Quran being the

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

revelation or the signs of the revelation.

00:00:37--> 00:00:53

And we mentioned the types of people who fall in disbelief, there are different types. So people reject faith or they fail to believe in Allah Subhan Allah and His book, due to different reasons. And then we mentioned we call Aya Taccone. These are the signs

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

in the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:01:00--> 00:01:40

And we said we are going to find throughout Surah a rod, it's called Thunder and thunder is one of the signs of Allah subhanaw taala in the creation. So this shows that the surah itself connects makes a very strong connection between two things between two things, to hydrophobia, and towheaded. Ruhi connects the lordship of Allah that he's the creator of the sustainer the provider, he's the originator of the universe. And it makes the logical conclusion that if Allah is the Creator is the only creator, the only provider he's the only one who deserves to be worshipped. He's the only one who has the right to be worshipped. So this is what the surah goes around. So I mentioned signs in

00:01:40--> 00:02:10

the creation, the might of Allah, the power of Allah subhanaw taala. And it shows the absurdity of disbelief in Allah that's completely illogical, completely logical. And the irony today is that a lot of atheism seems to come from a scientific background. And this is like this is the irony of the ironies. Because as simple logic, very simple, straightforward logic shows that disbelief in the Creator of the heavens and the earth is completely illogical.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

Taking in consideration the context of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:19--> 00:02:39

So we reached verse we finished with verse five and we move on now to verse number six the last one that it says ways that you don't know can you see it? Pablo Hassan at work adhaalath Mill public Himalayan Matthew that we're in now Rebecca Duma, theoretically nasty Hola. Hola, me him. We're in our Becky Alicia de de

00:02:41--> 00:02:49

los Montella says, And they request in haste,

00:02:50--> 00:03:28

what is bad, what is evil which is the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala before they even wish for what is good. And there is a context for this, that I will explain what God has been probably human in my flat and before them. The examples of previous nations that have been destroyed by Allah subhanaw taala are ample there's enough of them. There is a sufficient number of those and their news that have reached these people. Yet these people are in defiance of the Prophet SAW Salem, they are asking for punishment. They are asking for punishment than Allah. So let me provide a context for this verse. Were started you know in a chemistry at a couple of Hassan at work. adhaalath

00:03:28--> 00:03:37

mencoba Haman Matthew lands where he started you know, NACA, bissa. Year, a say year. Here is the punishment of Allah, Allah wa wa as

00:03:39--> 00:04:13

a senior senior means evil, bad and his word sin comes from, say, something evil, something bad. So the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala is also referred to as Ceja. Because against obviously when someone is, is the subject of the punishment, this is a bad, obviously a bad thing for him. So they asked you in defiance to bring the punishment of Allah upon them. That's what the context is. And it's mentioned in sort of the I mean, this is mentioned more clearly insulted and failed, or Allah subhanaw taala says about them

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

with Barlow Lahoma in Canada who will have come in Indic for Amber Elena Hey, Jonathan minister, Emma are waiting.

00:04:23--> 00:04:37

And they said, Oh Allah, if this is the truth from you, then send upon us you know stones from heavens. So let the skies rain upon us or send upon us stones.

00:04:38--> 00:04:49

And Alina Heriot Watt Amina sama are waiting to be either a name or send upon us severe painful punishment. So this shows the illogical, you know,

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

mentality of such people who disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala because a better way would be Oh Allah, this is the truth from you. Then short us with blood

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

thinks why punishment, but this shows the high level of defiance and rejection of the truth.

00:05:10--> 00:05:52

I'm going to see what she efficient deeply here is, by the way, I'm trying to take some insights from both to sort of shift for Saturday or homologs. And the book which is not necessarily tafsir but it's it's a special kind of tafsir by shikshak letter I have a lot of Allah, which is a world beyond thinking about hell Quran Hebrew Quran, this book is very interesting. This book is very interesting. I mean, there are different prints this sprint is 10 volumes, sprint distance 10 volumes, and a student who wants to study Quran properly in the Arabic language, who really wants to understand the Quran. Honestly, at this time, this is a must. This is a must to have. It's called

00:05:53--> 00:06:16

Eduardo LBN delights of clarification for Allah hell Qurani Bill Quran by explaining the Quran by the Quran, so it brings that it goes over the verses of the Quran. It doesn't cover all the verses by the way. It only covers the verses where there are other verses to explain them or provide context for them. Chef Mohammed ammunition clearly Aloha Mahalo to Allah.

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


00:06:21--> 00:06:24

the sheikh here says this is all this kind of

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

all this verse, the meaning of this verse actually resonates with other verses in the Quran.

00:06:31--> 00:06:42

One of them is in salted head where they say what Allah subhanaw taala says, when you start doing that can either be one or you can if Allah Hawa. And they request you to send the punishment of Allah

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

as soon as possible upon them,

00:06:46--> 00:06:56

in defiance of the truth. And Allah Subhana Allah says, and Allah will never break his promise the punishment will come them but in due time, when Allah subhanaw taala when sister wants to come upon them.

00:06:58--> 00:07:38

And also in sort of Angkor Wat when Allah subhanaw taala says, we started you don't wanna care bill either, whenever will Angelo Muslim Elijah Muhammad hijab Alia tianhong Dr. Muhammad is all sorts of Angkor Wat Allah from Ghana says, and they seek you to bring the punishment upon them sooner. They say if you are truly a messenger from Allah, send the punishment upon us prove your messenger ship by bringing the punishment of Allah upon us now, that's that's their defines. So Allah subhanaw taala, saying, and had it not been that we have appointed a specific time for the punishment, we would have brought it now. But we have an appointed time for this punishment to befall them on the

00:07:38--> 00:07:49

last month, Allah says, And it shall come upon them when they do not feel it, and when they do not expect it, when they do not expect it. And it's also

00:07:52--> 00:08:04

in Salton marriage selesa you know, I've been working with Kathleen Alex and people of color, she used to come to the provinces and they say, if you will really threaten us with the punishment of Allah, show it to us prove it to us.

00:08:06--> 00:08:42

And the adversary and they say, I mean, the logical point, if you truly like are questioning someone, whether they are a messenger from Allah or not, you basically tell them, if you are truly from Allah, Allah, Allah help us that Allah gave us something. And actually the people of Christ did something similar to that. But their common argument against the prophets of salaam was, if you are upon the truth, send Allah's punishment upon us now. But the people of Quraysh, they've asked the Prophet SAW Salem for certain signs. So they said, if you are truly a messenger from Allah subhanaw taala, we will believe in you with one condition that ALLAH turns you ask Allah to turn a sufferer

00:08:42--> 00:08:46

and model Y into gold mountains, turn them into gold mountains.

00:08:47--> 00:09:04

And the province of Islam requested Allah, Allah turn them into gold mountains. Then Allah subhana, Allah sent Gibreel at a Salam. And he said, Allah says, if you want, he could turn these into gold. But if they disbelieve, I will destroy them.

00:09:05--> 00:09:38

If they disbelieve, all destroyed, or we should not require and respond to this request, and we give them time, the Prophet SAW Selim says no, give them time. Give them time, it also wasn't merciful, because porcelain. He knew these people were saying this just in defiance, because previously the Prophet SAW Selim, they asked him for a sign. And he showed them the sign, which is when the moon split, right. They saw the moon split in front of their eyes. Then they started finding excuses not to believe so they said, so hold on. And Mohamed. He played some magic upon us.

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

So we saw something that wasn't real. It was some kind of illusion.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

And this way, they said, Okay, let's ask, you know, caravans were in the desert when they arrived in Mecca, like in a few days, we're going to ask them if they sorted them on split, then it's not magic. So when the caravans arrived like 344 days

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

He's later they started asking them they said, Yeah, we saw the moon split.

00:10:03--> 00:10:24

So they realized it wasn't magic, but still they disbelieved in it. So the prophets of salaam knew that they were not going to believe. So he said, No, don't turn them into gold and give them more time. Hopefully some of them would believe And subhanAllah good number of those people from Croatia, disbelievers at the time, they actually came back to Islam later on.

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

And again, the version sort of unveiled that we caught it previously. And Allah Subhan Allah says in soldier Shura, as well, your strategy will be Halloween Allah you may know maybe

00:10:35--> 00:10:45

the people who disbelieve in on the day of judgment and the day of judgment and the punishment and they have the hellfire. Ultimate, Allah says, And they asked you to bring it now bring the punishment of the Hellfire now

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

we're ladina Herman almost fit one, I mean, our

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

level of being.

00:10:53--> 00:11:33

Whereas the believers, they are in a state of apprehension and fear, fear for themselves about the Day of Judgment. But they really fear it, they fear it. So that shows the difference between a believer and this believer and also in solid solid. Allah subhanaw taala talks about the disbelievers who are called Giuliana, Bonner coplay, Omar hyssop, the disbelievers said, Oh, Allah, bring the punishment that you have designed for us on the Day of Judgment, bring it now we want it now. Before the Day of Judgment starts bring it now. So you can see usually covered by the well oftentimes, as we previously mentioned, the different types of cover, we said, on our Khufu journal,

00:11:34--> 00:12:10

four out of ignorance, someone doesn't know anything about Islam. They've never come across the true message of Islam. Or they have what they heard about Islam is what you'll find in the media. So these people are completely completely misinformed about Islam. This is call for jihad. So this they disbelieved in Islam because they thought it was evil. This is Khufu, Jiang aquifer Eraldo is well falls with it. We said Iran is more if someone recognize the truth in Islam, but they busy with their daily life, or they know if they become Muslim, there are certain things they have to give up on and so on and so forth. So they say maybe not now, maybe later. Now let me you know, carry on

00:12:10--> 00:12:52

with my life with my lifestyle. And later on, I will see I will have time to look into Islam a bit more. And there is Khufu hood, where enad people who live in denial, they see it's not as the truth. They decide I don't want it. I don't they know it's the truth. And they decide to leave it. These people do this out of arrogance, out of arrogance, and this is why Cofer is called what is called comes from the Arabic word Kafala, which is to cover something up to cover something. So these people in their hearts recognized Islam is the truth but they covered this. They covered it suppressed it and decided to go against it. That's where the word actually comes from.

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


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

so the people have this belief.

00:13:02--> 00:13:40

who disbelieve in Islam after seeing the truth after seeing the signs after recognizing the reality of Islam. These are the people who come from a state position of arrogance. And these are the people who are going to have this kind of arguments. What that if there is punishment, bring it upon us. But if someone is neutral, someone is open minded. They really want to see if Islam is the truth or not. They haven't made it their minds yet. So they they approach us down with an open mind and open heart. These people don't have to say if you have a punishment, bring it upon us. So show me signs. Show me science show me you know how Islam as the truth prove it to me. That's that's a fair kind of

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

stance to take with regards to Islam.

00:13:48--> 00:14:26

And Allah subhanaw taala responds in the Quran to this kind of argument that they again, we're explaining now the beginning of the first way start judo and I can see it abolhassan And they instead of them requesting good from you, okay, if Allah is there, give us something good from him. Now they request something about now, here Imam Hamid elimination daily, he shows some verses from the Quran, he brings them together nicely. And he shows how Allah responds to this argument. And the Quran. For example, also last month, he says in solitude, whether in a horned animal either by either metamath Do the thin layer coluna Maya happy so

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

Allah is saying and if we were to delay their punishment, they would say what is holding it back.

00:14:34--> 00:14:44

So you guys asking for it. Now if Allah is going to hold it a little bit back away from you, they would say, why is it not coming yet? We're waiting for this punishment.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

And Allah subhanaw taala is saying as well so I've got enough under the rug be more power to you. I saw the hotel lobby matter I do not encounter minimal salary. Also insulted or off when Sol Haysom was sent to his

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

People and Allah subhanaw taala brought for them the sign which is a Napa, the chic camo that came from the mountain from Rocky Mountains.

00:15:12--> 00:15:53

And then they killed it. They said to sila Harris to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in defiance. They said okay now bring the punishment now bring the punishment that you promised that if we do any harm to this, she camo. You promised us with the punishment okay bring it upon us. Come on. So shows you again the arrogance and the Defiance also the people of know how they slam this is also a source of truth. All we know about the journal 10 F 30 G Data Factory Nabi Mata, you do not include them in a surgery. They also said to know anything. You have argued with us so much, you know, because no Hyundai sedan is installed nor he said that he's approached his people from different angles,

00:15:53--> 00:16:33

different styles. He spoke in public, he spoke in private, he spoke with loud voices without voice with low voice, he used arguments and he used advice and he used this and he used that people still kept away from the message. So they said to him, you have argued with us so much, so much. So they said, So enough of this. If you have a punishment, bring it upon us. They'll bring it upon us now. So that's the same attitude. And it shows that these people come from a position of arrogance. Why is that you don't Okay, we see a couple of Hassan at work at Holloman company, he won't matter that Allah subhanaw taala simply responds to this argument by saying, but the examples methyl ads is

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

plural, that's the plural of muffler. muffler. muffler means

00:16:40--> 00:17:22

a very bad punishment. It means punishment. To me, it means something painful. This is why when mutilation for example, of dead bodies is called marthaler is called Macula autumn field, in Arabic language, so any kind of punishment or pain or attack is called an Arabic, Muslim, Muslim. Some of them have a Syrian, they said muffler or Matthew Latin or comes from, it's a plural of methyl, which is an example, an example of nations that came before but in this verse, both of them lead to the same meaning these people asking you for punishment, if there's a punishment from Allah, bring it upon us. Allah subhana, Allah is saying, and these people are out of their minds, because the

00:17:22--> 00:17:54

previous nations whose news have reached you, they have been punished. they disbelieved in the prophets and messengers and the news of the destruction have reached you. So why do you need to bring the punishment upon yourself. So if you want to make sure that the punishment is really there, you already know that it came to the nations that were before you, then Allah subhana, Allah says Allah, and that explains a wider context of how he deals with his creation. I remember Subhan Allah is something I shared previously, when I was in high school, I had one of my colleagues,

00:17:56--> 00:18:07

although he grew up in a Muslim country, but I don't know what happened to him. And I remember, it was in one of the main squares in my town, and we were coming back from school.

00:18:08--> 00:18:46

And he had an argument with some brothers practicing brothers, Allah, He said, In defiance, and this is a Muslim and an Arab brought up in a Muslim completely in a Muslim country in Arab country. And he says, I don't believe ALLAH is there. I don't know what made him say this. But at that time, he was very rebellious. And he said, Bring him to me, I'm going to fight with him. And he says, if you are if you're up there Come and I will own a fight with you. I don't believe you even there. And he used some bad language. And at that moment, I really said to myself, like, you know, you're still young and you hot blooded. So I said, Oh, look, please like I wanna I want to punch him, but I don't

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

want to get in trouble. But I said, oh, please Allah destroy him now. Please, Allah take him out now.

00:18:54--> 00:19:07

And I felt bad that this guy was still alive. Nothing happened to him. Next day again to the to the school, no problem, nothing. I really felt bad and I felt in my small mind at the time that Allah should have punished him.

00:19:10--> 00:19:16

So three years ago, three years ago, I pray in a masjid and I see this guy in the masjid.

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

I see him in the masjid and I asked about him they said this, this guy prays the five daily prayers in the masjid.

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

Yes, I realized my mind was so small. Maha was so small at that time. So Allah Subhana Allah is Seeing something similar after all this defines and these people are saying if you have punishment, or Muhammad bring it upon us, Allah Subhan Allah saying, We're in naran Baca. Ledoux McAfee arati Linares. We're in Arab Bukhara should you do that? And you will, Lord. Lord is so merciful to his creation despite their oppression, despite the injustice. We're in our backyard and shut up and your Lord is also Severe in punishment. He is Severe in punishment. So that shows Allah

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

Mandela does not run this universe by our wishes and desires. A lot oftentimes when what's happening to the Muslims in different parts of the world and people are saying, Where is Allah? How come Allah allows all this injustice and these atrocities to take place? Where is Allah? Allah is not hastened by your rush allows not hasty.

00:20:21--> 00:20:52

Allah acts according to his knowledge. Allah acts according to his wisdom, and lots according to his mercy. Allah is more merciful to the servants than we are. But our minds are small, we hasty, we want to rush want to change things, because we eat we act from a small minds or narrow world. But Allah Subhana Allah knows way beyond that. He sees way beyond that. And if you allow something to happen, he has wisdom behind it. And he also has mercy behind it. This is why Imam look at your comments on something.

00:20:53--> 00:21:31

This is some kind of authority that comes from the People of the Scripture. And we know in Islam, the Prophet of Islam says letters of the cohomological Dubois we call this law Aliette things that come from the People of the Scripture. We don't reject them. And we don't accept them. We check them if they are in line with our Sharia with Islam, we accept the meaning if they go against something we know from the Quran authentics one of the prophets of Salaam, okay, we reject that. If it agrees with the Quran and the Sunnah, we accept the meaning if it disagrees, we reject it simple as that. But we don't make a blank statement about them. The old bad old God is not like this. It's a

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

differentiated approach. So I remember I

00:21:35--> 00:21:44

mentioned something about this and he says, You're all Ebody or your own wholeness document Mojave.

00:21:45--> 00:21:57

My some of my servants say about another one who's been tried, or Allah, have mercy on your servant. And Allah Subhan Allah Allah that Allah azza wa jal responds, Kay for our humble woman like Amity

00:21:58--> 00:22:35

give our humble woman I'll give out how am I gonna be here? How do you want me to have mercy on him when he's already in my mercy, because this trial is a mercy from Allah, there might be hardship there might be pain in it, but you don't see the other side of it. Which is so much great messy. An example of this is what the Prophet SAW Selim says that a servant Allah subhanaw taala points upon a high place in paradise, high place in paradise for, for for a person, and he doesn't get to that level with his actions. So ALLAH SubhanA tries him with hardship, so he qualifies to get to that level. Allah qualifies it.

00:22:40--> 00:22:51

Yeah, so. So this is just an example of the Mercy of Allah. So a punishment or hardship that you going through a might be a mercy from Allah subhanaw taala. But as I said, in our small minds, we want to act

00:22:53--> 00:23:32

quickly. So we have to remember this wrath to remind ourselves of this balance and this white Muslim we are issue Boehner, Allah, God will have the believer lives between these two things were that created balanced, they're more like two wings, right? It's a Raja hoping in the Mercy of Allah, and hoping in the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and fear of his punishment, once you lose one of them or you lose the balance. You're not gonna, you know, be traveling to Allah in a healthy way. So you have to maintain these two things. We're in Arabic Allah Duma, Filati, Lhasa, Allah Holmium. We're in Arab baccala shahidul And Allah is merciful to the creation even though they are immersed

00:23:32--> 00:23:49

in their injustice and oppression. We're in a lot of backlash at the law club and your load is severe and punishment. So you have to keep these two in mind. So remembering Allah's punishment and Allah's wrath and Allah's Anger, this would keep you away from sin when you when you self takes over.

00:23:51--> 00:23:59

And remembering the hope and focusing on the hope will help you avoid falling in despair of Allah's mercy.

00:24:01--> 00:24:07

And it will give you the stamina and the energy to keep moving to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:24:09--> 00:24:14

Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala then says, we are already in a Kaffir, Hula, hula on Zillow, and he is

00:24:16--> 00:24:28

in the movie room with equally cool women. And the people say again, these people the whole disbelief, say in defiance, why isn't there a sign sent?

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

upon you from Allah, or from your Lord? Why isn't there a sign from you? And Allah Subhana Allah responds to this because this is not a question because the prophets of salaam came with so many signs, yet these people reject it. Just like when you have an argument with someone, they ask a question, you provide them with an answer, and they say you haven't answered, but I've given you an answer. And it's logical and it makes sense. But they don't want to see it. So they live in denial, or they're responding and they say no, you haven't answered that. Give me an answer, or I've asked you a question you haven't answered.

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

If I didn't answer, no, you haven't answered, I did. But you are denying it. That's the reality. So the people, disbelievers. That's what they do. They ask for signs, the signs are there. And there's another story that I believe I previously mentioned. And it was just very interesting. There's a guy from Australia. And his video was on YouTube. And he said, basically, he is a is a revert. And he mentioned this story. So he says,

00:25:27--> 00:25:40

I researched different religions and read different religions, and so on and so forth, and was looking into Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and so on and so forth. And Islam and others. So he said,

00:25:42--> 00:25:48

and he had a dog and he said, I love my dog so much. They said, One day my dog dies.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

And it was the time I was investigating.

00:25:52--> 00:26:30

Probably Catholicism. So he said, it broke my heart. Some people love their dogs so much, really, some people love their dogs, so much. So it seems this guy was like this, like his dog was his companion. So he said, I felt so much anger, if God is there, I felt so much anger against them, why does he take my best friend? Why does it take my dog? So he said, at that time, I was speaking to some Catholics, and I asked them about, and I mentioned to them, that you know, about God, and so on and so forth. And they said, You know, God loves you. You know, that's a blank statement that they gave, God loves you. And God loves the world that He sent His only Son to be crucified and so on, so

00:26:30--> 00:27:10

forth. So, so he said, that didn't make sense. So he responded to them. He said, You say, God loves me. And he says, in his own Australian accent says, my dog died. Like my dog died, how come from God loves me? He loves me. What does he take my friend, like? So? He said, This then makes sense. Then he afterwards he was looking into the Quran, he said, it made so much sense to me. So he was reading the translation. Well, the translations of the Quran, he said, it made so much sense to me, and it appealed to me. So I was reading it. Now he says, I reached a point in the Quran where I was satisfied with it. But he says, in my small mind, I was waiting for a sign. I wanted a clear sign.

00:27:11--> 00:27:39

So he said, It was summer night, very calm, peaceful, beautiful night. So I was at home. And I was in my room. The window was open. The curtains were there. It was calm, quiet, even a small breeze of air. He said, I was peaceful. He said, Then I addressed God. I said, If this is your book, give me a sign. If this book is from you, Sam's the truth. Give me a sign now. And he said, I'll give you 15 minutes.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

If you don't give me a sign within 15 minutes or half an hour,

00:27:45--> 00:28:06

you've lost your you've lost your chance, says I sat. And he said, I was so desperate, that even if the curtain moved a little bit out of centers, this is the sign he said, I was so desperate, I wondered any sign. But he said nothing happened. And he said 50 minutes or half an hour was, you know, gone. Is it? Sorry, God, I gave you enough chance. You didn't make it.

00:28:07--> 00:28:49

So that I ignored it. I said, I'm not gonna look into it anymore. Said he said I put the Quran a put a marker and he put the Quran on his shelf back on his shelf. He says a couple of days later, I'm in my room, and I feel a bit like lonely, sad. And I see the call and say I want to I said I felt the urge to read it again. So I'm going to say what he said, but I'm not sure exactly which verses he he mentioned, but I, I have my own, like I tried to figure it out. But I think he translated the verses loosely. So he says, I picked up the Quran and exactly the page where I left it because I had a marker. And I started reading from where I left off. So he said, the first sign that I read was

00:28:49--> 00:29:11

towards that meaning and they asked you for signs. They asked you for signs. And if they were to open their eyes and look around, they would see signs and everything. We've already given the sign. So he said I felt so ashamed of myself, that I was a living sign. My life was a living sign. And I was asking for a sign when the signs were given before I asked for them.

00:29:12--> 00:29:48

So he said that's the time I embraced Islam. So that's the truth. You want signs signs are all over the place everything and we said last time that the line of poetry was equally shaking the whole area to the don't know, I don't know why he do and everything there is a sign. And it points everything in the creation was not only physical things, but even like human interactions, your human experience. Everything that is in existence is a sign and it points you to Allah. But it's just we are not aware enough or we're not focused enough to see that message and everything around us.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

So the disbelievers say,

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

you know, we wish there was a sign that was sent sent upon him from his Lord and Allah

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

Tara says in a moon there, while equally common, you are just a warner. You're just so you were sent to convey the message that he says will equally coalminer, you're just a Warner, you're just someone who brings the news

00:30:16--> 00:30:37

reminds them of Allah, and was last month and it says Miranda was really ill Bella upon the Macedonia obligation upon the messengers to convey the message is just to convey the message. And Allah says when equally a woman had, and for every nation, we sent a messenger, what it meant on Latin, il Allah Fianna there are there is no nation except that Allah sent a messenger to them.

00:30:39--> 00:30:50

In every nation, somebody might say, you know, but we have indigenous people, indigenous cultures, these people know nothing about Islam or they don't seem to be revelation. Actually, if you study

00:30:51--> 00:31:04

indigenous cultures, all the different, all different religions as well philosophies, you're going to find a lot of traces of divinity, of divine revelation there. There are things that if you look, look at even the major religions,

00:31:05--> 00:31:26

even Eastern philosophies, look into them, you're going to find things that could never come from a human mind. But it's twisted. It's changed over time, translated, so many things added to it, human interpretation and so on and so forth. But some signs of divinity or divine revelation, you can still see it there. And remember, like last year,

00:31:28--> 00:31:38

I read into the book of Lao Tzu, and they believe Lao Tzu is the founder of you know, the Taoism philosophy.

00:31:41--> 00:32:12

So his book is called the Dow, the Dow, which means the way reading into it, there are things you can see no way a human being or human mind could come up with something like this, but it's mixed with a lot of stuff, unfortunately, mixed with a lot of stuff. So that shows on Alaska Montana says we're in on methane in LA caleffi Anna there and this is sort of this called this is called one of the alfalfa hormone and it has a lot of what we call them what key that statements of emphasis were in

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

indeed, Min Oma.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

Okay, Min OMA and this is

00:32:22--> 00:32:41

Walsall and more soul as muscle and also a lot of fossil I'm also we're in min or Matten. Basically Allah saying Indeed there is no nation, except that we send to them and Messenger. This is one a very strong statement. So we're in Minomycin Illa, Hala Fianna

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

we're in Minomycin Illa caleffi Nedi. So there is no nation except that we sent a messenger to them. As a last month, Allah again said

00:32:56--> 00:33:40

in the mountain Bureau, when he couldn't look a woman had and for every nation, we sent a guide, someone to guide them, someone to guide them, but we know that guiding the messengers do is what we call hidayah. To Albion with who he directed by and is that you convey the message. But there's another type of guidance which is inspiration, inspiring people to follow the truth, which is he died Tofik die to tofi that Allah inspires a person to follow the truth. That's what Allah is what Allah Subhan Allah says to the prophets of Salaam in Nicoletta de manda habits, you do not guide whomever you love with our kin Allah Hi Eddie mijoshop But Allah Subhan Allah guides whomever he

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


00:33:41--> 00:33:50

so the real guidance which is inspiring the heart to follow the truth follows now this is only with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:33:56--> 00:34:26

Okay, some of the verses in the Quran that show that the Prophet SAW Selim is only His mission is to convey the message and that Allah sent to every nation a prophet or a messenger that Allah subhanaw taala says, for example, Social karalis Allah Who dang What am I kidding Allah Hi Eddie Masha, it's not upon you to guide people. Allah guides whomever he wills and the last one tennis isn't sort of the right for in nama Malika and below. What are the you know, he said please run it will come inshallah and same song

00:34:30--> 00:34:44

and Allah subhanaw taala says what equally own material Rasul instalaciones for every nation there is a messenger and he says we're immune mutton ill Hala Fianna dear, so let's follow there's no nation except a warner was sent to them.

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

And in sort of the Nahalat Allah Subhana Allah says what after the bath Nafi cooling method Rasul Allah, and in every nation we have sent a messenger. We have sent a messenger then Allah subhanaw taala

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

He's going to talk about his signs now integration. So these people are saying, We want signs why there are no signs or proofs that are sent upon him from his Lord Allah subhanaw taala saying, Allahu Allah Mamma Mia local on one matter redouble our hammer, one that is that are collusion in the Hubei makerdao. By the way, so let's write, really, if you want to feel the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala you have to focus on salata. Right. So to write, it's, it's called right and it Trimpe it Trimble's the heart with the greatness of Allah SubhanAllah. And if you read it with an open heart is so powerful the way it talks about Allah subhanaw taala it sort of grabs your heart.

00:35:41--> 00:35:57

So Allah says once I say Allahu Allah Moo Matta miracle, ALLAH spirit, Allah knows what every woman what every female carries in her womb. That's about humans. love Allah, no matter how long Kelowna this is about.

00:35:59--> 00:36:43

Mammals, let's say about mammals, where the mother carries the child in the womb, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah knows what's in the womb. Sometimes people might say, okay, but now, you know, with these ultrasound and these devices, we can know what is what is in the womb? Well, we can know at a certain time, right? There's a certain time in the pregnancy that we are able to see and know. Right? But what about before that, and still with this, there is a percentage of mistakes, there is a percentage of mistakes and these mistakes are very common. But Allah Subhana Allah knows what's in the womb. And he knows before it even starts before the you know, copulation happens before the the

00:36:43--> 00:37:31

whole process starts, Allah knows what is going to be in the warmth of his mother, and also apart from mammals, any type of female that has the genes of her offspring in her Allah knows where this is. So Allah basically knows what's inside and what's outside so Allah knows what is hidden from you Allah we are not me Miracle on Walmart eligible or harm. Walmart is dead. Well matter we will add harm. What the wombs lose, what the wombs lose, there are women who sometimes in the middle of the pregnancy, they have miscarriage. Some of these miscarriages are known and they are discovered some of these miscarriages happen seamlessly.

00:37:32--> 00:37:45

And the the woman doesn't even seem to know. Some women are surprised with some kind of bleeding, they don't know what it is. They go to the doctor and until there was a fetus and he died. So Allah Subhan Allah knows what in the wombs

00:37:46--> 00:38:11

during the pregnancy and before the pregnancy and we know that from the Hadith of the prophets, I send them in the locket. The idea was to know what you will cobbler and Allah, Allah if a tabula rasa, what you will become Sina Alpha Sana, Allah Subhana Allah wrote everything that was going to happen when we say everything that means every small minut detail was written in the Preserved Tablet 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. The Hadith of

00:38:18--> 00:38:22

the Hadith verbatim no sommets where he says to his son

00:38:24--> 00:38:35

he says a word on my HELOC Allahu xojo and column for call Allah hooked up for Ketubah Kula who occur in Ilario multi Jana

00:38:36--> 00:38:43

coulomb ah you know Ilario Macrium you're gonna you're in Metalla V Retallick.

00:38:44--> 00:38:44

The Hulten

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

pastor by the Muslim it's advising his

00:38:49--> 00:39:35

his son and he said Samir, to whom and Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Himself. So a lot of first thing Allah created was depend a lot told commanded depend to write everything that was going to happen until the day of judgment and he wrote down everything. So he said, if you if you die, why you don't believe in this, you will enter the hellfire. I heard this from the prophets of Allah who said what matters that and also what grows in the wombs. What Kulu che in in the Hubei McDowell and everything with Allah goes to according to a precise measure. Everything with Allah happens and take place according to a precise measure. And this is a very profound verse. There's a very profound for us.

00:39:35--> 00:39:57

So everything with Allah is already designed. Everything with Allah happens at what, at exactly the same rate at the at the right time, the right rate, the right place, to the right people. And that's for those of you know, last year we made we talked about if Salesforce Lachman anyone was here

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

So look man who was here.

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

Yeah. You remember what's the main theme of sort of look man when we said the main theme of the whole Surah it goes around

00:40:11--> 00:40:22

hikma and hikma wisdom. We said, wisdom is basically one of the best ways to translate wisdom in all al hikma into English is appropriateness,

00:40:23--> 00:40:48

appropriateness, which means putting everything in the right place at the right time. Everything is all the measures are right. All the measures are right. So, when Allah subhanaw taala says, we're calling Lucia in the holy metadata and everything with Allah happens according to a precise measure. So this, but this basically means we live in a world where there's no mistakes.

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

There's no mistakes in this world.

00:40:52--> 00:40:59

An accident happened, you said, Oh, it was a mistake. It wasn't. This happened. Intentionally. Allah wanted this to happen.

00:41:00--> 00:41:06

And happen in the right time. I remember seeing there was Subhanallah, one of those videos where,

00:41:07--> 00:41:28

like, sometimes these things are sad. But the commentary of humans or sometimes the comments made by some people really, like show you how far off we are sometimes from the truth and our perception of what happens. There was this lady and a chimney. I think this happened in England, a chimney collapsed, the woman was just walking on, on the pavement or the sidewalk.

00:41:29--> 00:41:34

And the chimney just at that time happened. There's no signs, it happened to collapse, and it fell on her.

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

And it died. She died.

00:41:37--> 00:41:47

So the commentators she had said she was at the wrong place at the wrong time. And that's in the news. This woman was at the wrong time, the wrong place at the wrong time.

00:41:49--> 00:42:04

Actually, she was there at the right place at the right time, because that was it. I had time to leave. So with Allah Subhan Allah everything is according to measure a woman has miscarriage. It wasn't a mistake. It was meant to happen. He was meant to happen.

00:42:07--> 00:42:10

An accident, it's not an accident.

00:42:12--> 00:42:14

It's not an accident. It's not a coincidence.

00:42:15--> 00:42:29

It was designed. And there's something by the way, interesting in the word coincidence. Coincidence? We try to imply when we say coincidence, that it was random. But actually, even linguistically, in English. When you say coincidence, what does it mean?

00:42:30--> 00:42:31

I mean, two things agree.

00:42:33--> 00:43:19

Two things agree. Okay. So it's not random. It says when two things happen to agree, so it's, it's a process. It's a process. Anyway, so with Allah subhanaw taala everything is according to a precise measure. There's nothing in this universe that happens randomly. There is no mistakes in this universe. There's nothing that goes wrong. But from our perspective, we say, Oh, that wasn't meant to happen. That's not ideal. That's a problem. That's not good. But actually, everything happens. It is actually good. And if it's not good, Allah doesn't allow it to happen. Allah does not allow it to happen. Now, yes. Is there evil in what happens? There is evil what happens? But this evil is

00:43:19--> 00:43:39

relative? It's relative, it's evil, like because it's painful to me. Or it's against my expectations, we call it evil. We call evil. But Allah only allows to happen that which is essentially good, which is essentially or ultimately good is what Allah allows. Okay? Let's say something.

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

Zina is good or bad.

00:43:46--> 00:43:55

They say rape, okay, make it even worse. Rape. Is it good or bad? It's bad, it's evil. It is evil. Absolutely. So why does Allah allow it to happen?

00:43:59--> 00:44:02

In the grand scheme of things, Allah is going to bring out a good thing out of it.

00:44:04--> 00:44:17

Allah is going to bring a good end out of it. It is evil. It is evil, but Allah is gonna bring good out of it. There's a beautiful argument opened up in in magaji. SALKIN, talks about the concept of

00:44:19--> 00:44:28

I'll hire worship, good and evil. And he treats this in a very like, I've never seen a person treats this in such beauty.

00:44:30--> 00:44:37

The concept of good and evil, is there evil or not? So he says absolute evil does not exist.

00:44:38--> 00:44:51

absolute evil does not exist. He says relative evil exists. This is where shuttle McLaughlin Ryujin now you just lay this episode we'll do the shadow mock, that can shuttle unnecessary,

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

shuttling lispy.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

So this is the greatness of Allah so whatever happens in the universe, it is meant to happen is

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

Mecca Dar, it's according to a precise measure, think and even looking at, you know, not only events and things that happen or incidents to get the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Everything in this universe, the Earth is the sun, the moon, the galaxies, the all the celestial bodies, all this huge universe. Everything is running according to precise measure the rate according to which the Earth spins around its own axis, the same on the rate, the rate according to which the the Earth goes around the sun and the moon goes around the earth and so on and so forth. Everything is at the right ideal rate. If anything goes wrong or changes slightly, this world or this universe will sort of

00:45:42--> 00:45:46

destroy itself, but everything is just according to a precise measure.

00:45:48--> 00:46:00

Then people say why there are no sides. That's that's the irony here again, that's the irony. Well, collusion and the Hopi McDarrah, this also reminds us of the verse where Allah Montana says insolate

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

Allah Subhan Allah because Allah the Halacha

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

will lay the data.

00:46:11--> 00:46:39

So Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah because Allah Allah the Most High glorify him, Allah the Halacha for someone who created and Silva, he made everything right. So even so everything was just right in his creation. This includes physical objects or currencies, events, things everything is just created according to the best possible way. I love the HELOC officer what will the data for her

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

and he

00:46:42--> 00:46:43

made the color.

00:46:44--> 00:46:59

May the color use gave everything its precise measures and its destiny and its plan. And then he guided everything to that plan. So we are guided to what is going to happen in our lives. We are guided to it. We are guided to it.

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

And this could open a discussion but we're not going to discuss it here. Which is do humans have free will?

00:47:07--> 00:47:09

Do humans have free will?

00:47:11--> 00:47:46

That's a big argument. But with Allah Spano shahada, you cannot go wrong with a lie you cannot go wrong. There's no oppression humans are giving are given in this lifetime, the ability to save themselves from the hellfire. But if they go to the to the hellfire, they must have chosen at some level. Allah Allah Subhana Allah says well I literally am Rob Booker had does not do and just so people will end up in the hellfire. These people there's no way there would be injustice to them. There's no way anyone who goes there deserves it and by his own choice or her own choice.

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

Okay, let me see Shakespeare provides

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

this beautiful longboat they are home. Okay, there's no problem.

00:48:07--> 00:48:13

Then Allah subhanaw taala describes himself he says, early model EB was Shahar that will give you all motor

00:48:14--> 00:48:35

animal alive he knows the Unseen wish she had the scene we said last time there are two worlds LM lib the world of the unseen while mo shahada the world of the scene. We see. It is seen to Allah but to us, okay, it is we don't see this screen. This is crazy. Well, there are things we don't see.

00:48:37--> 00:48:59

So for us, there's what we perceive animus shahada and what we cannot perceive ilevel vibe which is unseen to us, unseen, but Allah Subhana Allah knows that it's the same to him. All of it is open to him. He knows it inside out. He knows about all the details. Ali, maybe wish you had that he LKB all motor laws the omnipotent omnipotent, the most powerful

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

LKBL motor and he is the highest. He's the highest and this has suffered sliver to the blue lie as origin. So Allah subhanaw taala Sefa to do with that and mostly fatale Louie Kahan. So Allah subhanaw taala is the most high he's above his creation. And

00:49:24--> 00:49:26

literally speaking, and

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

figuratively speaking,

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

Allah subhanaw taala. He is above his creation in terms of power and might as well in terms of power unlike the last month, Allah says, Allah man and allows you stowa He rose above the throne, and we know the upper most of all the creation because above the seventh heaven, there is Al cracy and the louche of currency and the dash and Allah subhanaw taala is above his throne, how we don't understand this with our minds, our hearts know it. We believe in it as truth, but we do not ask how because how

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

For the creation, our minds are designed to understand the creation of Adam and Eve we said if you remember when we started saying, talking about the heavens and the pillars, we said, Allah is giving us a sign that the world of the unseen you cannot process this with this, process it with this brain, this brain is given to you to navigate this world, this physical world that we know the world of the unseen, the only way for you to know it is Revelation, and it resonates with your fitrah that's it, you stop there.

00:50:30--> 00:51:04

So animal baby will share that we'll give you one more time. Allah is going to talk about his knowledge now he knows the seen and the unseen, so he knows everything. So oming commend several cola woman, Jaya Halabi woman who almost half in believing was valuable enough. Same to Allah is the person who conceals what they say like they whisper or they keep the words in their chest in the mind. You don't speak them, or you express them openly. This is similar, both of them are the same to Allah, Allah has access to them.

00:51:05--> 00:51:12

It doesn't make any difference with Allah. But for us with the creation, if you express what you have in mind, now I see it. I hear it.

00:51:13--> 00:51:31

If you keep it inside, I don't know it. But for Allah subhanaw taala they are the same. They are the same. So why don't we comment out on Jollibee woman who was stuffing the lady with dinner. And similar to Allah are the ones who are hiding themselves or hiding whatever they do in the darkness of the night.

00:51:32--> 00:51:53

And the one who is doing things openly in daylight. It's the same to Allah, He sees them the same, there's no difference. But for you, it's different, for you is different. So Allah is beyond your limitations. Allah is beyond your limitations. Lahoma October two min benei the woman comfy, you have own a home in Manila.

00:52:01--> 00:52:49

Allah subhanaw taala is talking now about the creation here. Because Allah says whoever exposes what they have, or they expose it or conceal it, or whether you hide something at night or show it during the day. Allah subhanaw taala knows that he has access to all of this. It's all the same to him, that Allah says about these human beings, about humans, that we have angels to God us angels to guide us Lahoma October two men beignet the woman healthy, we have angels around us. Yeah, fellow in our home, they protect us, they protect humans, they follow no mean amarilla by the command of Allah, by the command of Allah. So we are protected by angels that protect us from anything that was

00:52:49--> 00:53:03

not meant to happen. There's a hadith of the prophets of Salaam, that the angels I can't remember the exact wording but the meaning of the hadith is that there are angels that are that protecting human beings, folks might be mentioned to you by the shape of you.

00:53:13--> 00:53:20

Know, he doesn't mention it. Anyway. So the President says that there are angels protecting human beings

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

from anything that was not written in a cuddle.

00:53:27--> 00:53:35

And when the moment of death is meant to come to this person that would leave him to his fate, the angels would leave that person to his feet.

00:53:36--> 00:53:41

So they would lift or they would take away the protection. So this person

00:53:42--> 00:54:23

meet the fates. So we are protected by Allah subhanaw taala we are protected, we don't realize it. We think it's automatic, or there's nothing bad happening to us, right? Or we just walk around safely. But this is not happening automatically. There are angels that are holding that are protecting you from anything else in this world. And we don't see this kind of pampering we are pampered by Allah. Allah is appointed angels that take turns. There's this the meaning of Marathi that they take turns one after the other, one after the other. And they protect you by the command of Allah. Yeah, follow No, mean and Marilla they protect you from anything that was not written for

00:54:23--> 00:54:48

you. So we walk around, we think, oh, there's nothing happening now. Or no damage is happening to me. No, it's not happening to you. Because there are angels protecting you. There are angels protecting you. And for example, when someone has run over by a car, it's not an accident. It was meant to happen at that moment, the angels lift their prediction. And they allow the Allah or the other of Allah to happen to that person. That's how things happen.

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

And this is something very interesting.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

By the way, like, we study physical light, we study the world. The world around us is physics, but it's really it's

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

To interesting something very interesting.

00:55:03--> 00:55:19

Why does the Earth have gravity, for example, just to show you that, for Muslims, sometimes we talk about the Islamization of knowledge but we don't even do it well. Islamization of knowledge truly what it would be is actually giving science a very profound context, real context.

00:55:20--> 00:55:22

Gravity for example.

00:55:24--> 00:55:28

What is the earth or planets and celestial bodies? What do they have gravity?

00:55:31--> 00:55:48

Physics and Chemistry are going to explain to you well, you know, bodies have gravitational power, pulling power, because of their atoms are put together and there are free electrons and so on and so forth. And the bigger the, the mass, the stronger the

00:55:49--> 00:55:54

the gravity is, and so on and so forth. Right. But this doesn't explain where this power still comes from.

00:55:55--> 00:56:05

He says, it doesn't say why it says how, how, but you can't you need to reach a point in how well you have to answer why.

00:56:06--> 00:56:23

But Allah subhanaw taala talks about this in the Quran. And you will find these in the sutras. There's a few songs on the Quran that start with feminine plural jemcon unnecessary. For example, when will most add it or

00:56:25--> 00:56:27

will also refer it as

00:56:28--> 00:56:36

another sort of when NAS you had you are when now National Party national was saw 30 is off.

00:56:37--> 00:57:14

Again, with that reality that what are these? These are angels, Allah Samantha is talking about angels. What do the angels do? They run the universe by the command of Allah. So we think this power in this earth to to pull things towards it towards the center is just inherent in the earth itself. No, this is happening, by the way because of angels, when we call physical phenomena, or physical rules that are unbreakable. What are these happening? No, the Earth is just an object there. Where does it get this gravitational power? Where do the electrons get this gravitational pole? Where does it come from?

00:57:17--> 00:57:20

What's the power behind it? That's the angels.

00:57:21--> 00:57:31

That's the angels. There's nothing that happens. Allah Subhana Allah mentioned in the Quran, that the wind blows, these are angels that are getting the wound to blow.

00:57:33--> 00:57:33


00:57:36--> 00:57:40

the clouds are moving, and they

00:57:41--> 00:58:05

give away the moist and in the form of rain. What is this happen? It's angels that cause it to happen. So things that are we take for granted, that's the issue is that we are blind. We are blind to these things. We don't see what is happening behind them. And this is why it's very interesting, by the way, why she has them. Empty me something very interesting. He says Kulu halachot, infill Alameda we were swiftly.

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

For as long

00:58:09--> 00:58:22

as we're interesting, every move in the lower world which is Earth, and what we see, and the upper world which is heavens, Summer, what the sky's

00:58:23--> 00:58:27

the power behind it, the force behind it is Love

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

is love,

00:58:30--> 00:58:58

love of love of Allah. It is because everything that happens happens because of an angel because of angels and angels. They do what they do in worship and obedience to Allah. And then he explains or he previously explains that the the essence of worship or slowly Birdman, the heart and the essence of worship is love. So he says everything that is happening in this universe, every move behind it, the force behind it, the default force behind it is love, love of Allah.

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

love Allah. So the angels are things that are happening around us. Oh, they're just happening by themselves, right? The earth is just going around the sun by itself, right? Oh, by physical laws. Now what what is the power behind these all these physical laws

00:59:15--> 00:59:26

it's the angels that Allah put to run this universe in that fashion. And the moment Allah commands these angels to leave these things alone these things will just collapse.

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


00:59:32--> 00:59:46

so we live around and around us there are angels protecting us you have a loan on amarilla in Hola Hola, yo yo, maybe only that day or you maybe unfussy him, Allah Spanish, Allah does not change the state of people until they have changed

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

what's in themselves, what's in themselves and as a very powerful rule. Now the original meaning of this is that Allah does not take a gift

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

For a blessing from a people until they change what's in themselves, so they have belief, if they change it into disbelief, Allah will take away blessings that He has given them alone take away blessings that He has given them. But it also works on the opposite meaning that Allah does not change the bad state of people until they change what's in themselves. That's also

01:00:21--> 01:00:22


01:00:30--> 01:00:44

Now this, by the way, these verses quoted, so in the wrong context, so often, so often, like I remember when some of the, what they called the Arab Spring, the Arab Spring

01:00:46--> 01:01:02

when some of these revolutions happened, took place. People said, Now Allah is going to change our states because we have changed within our hearts in what's in ourselves. So it says, so what was changed ourselves, oh, now we stopped being coward we spoke out.

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

This is what we say, Hold on that Allah He believes.

01:01:07--> 01:01:18

This is Colin at Allah, he believes this speaking about Allah without knowledge. Because when Allah says that Allah has not changed the state of people until they have changed what's in themselves.

01:01:21--> 01:01:28

What you change in yourself in order for your situations or your conditions to change is what you have in your heart towards Allah.

01:01:31--> 01:02:01

Love, we're talking about Love of Allah. We're talking about fear of Allah, talking about obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. We're talking about trust and reliance in Allah, talking about faith in Allah, that's what we're talking about. It's not anything you change in yourself, ALLAH is talking about something specific, which is the whole Quran is speaking about these things. So when someone claims that this is what the verse mean, is how you hijack a verse out of context, and you use the religion or the words of ALLAH to justify something

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

that is more of a human endeavor.

01:02:06--> 01:02:27

That's very serious and very problematic. It's very serious. This is why sometimes commentators or people who have little bit of Islamic knowledge, but they're not very well grounded. These people cause a lot of confusion about these things. This is why it happened, unfortunately. And we saw it so much. In some of the Muslim countries, unfortunately, what happened?

01:02:29--> 01:02:37

And I heard this a few times on the news. People said, Allah promised that if we change is going to change our situation, we changed

01:02:38--> 01:02:41

and where is Allah now? These are Muslims saying this.

01:02:42--> 01:02:50

These are Muslims saying this, where is Allah now look at us are children being killed, women have been kidnapped and so on and so forth. Where is Alana?

01:02:52--> 01:02:57

I've seen this I would say countless, countless numbers, sometimes in person, sometimes on TV.

01:03:00--> 01:03:12

That's because unfortunately, some dua, some people speak for Islam, they went out in public and they said to these people, Do this, do that and Allah is with you. And Allah has given you a victory.

01:03:15--> 01:03:25

As part of our big problem today as well, that people speak about Allah without true knowledge of Allah Subhan Allah where the scholars, the true scholars, and these times they have given advice.

01:03:26--> 01:03:32

I've given advice and the advice was clear, but they were given names they were called names unfortunately.

01:03:34--> 01:03:38

Allah Spanish Allah says what either either Allahu Allah minzu I'm fella Amara,

01:03:39--> 01:03:43

woman, Allah whom in Dooney. Meanwhile

01:03:47--> 01:03:52

Allah is saying, And if Allah once

01:03:53--> 01:03:54

Sue and

01:03:55--> 01:04:03

sue me means punishment here for law once punishment for people once a trial, for he has written it down upon people, no one is going to stop it.

01:04:04--> 01:04:37

These people are going to have no well No really. No someone helped her to protect them, and guardian to save them from the what Allah has sent upon them. So this shows the power of the word of Allah subhanaw taala. Last month, Allah says automate, automate Kennametal Rob Baker soupcon Whaddon the word of your Lord has been completed, has been perfected soupcon where Adela in truth and injustice. The Word of Allah has these two all the time, whether it's a word of Kadar or it's a word of Sharia.

01:04:39--> 01:04:41

It has these two traits

01:04:43--> 01:04:45

soupcon it is true.

01:04:46--> 01:04:48

And I'd love it is there's justice with it.

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

So we don't question what Allah Subhana Allah does and also last ones Allah says in surah tuition for LA Holleyman Allah Emery, what are kin axon Nursey la isla Moon

01:05:00--> 01:05:44

Allah subhanaw taala is going to make his word come true. That's what it means. When Allah wants something to happen, Allah has the power to make it come to pass. Allah has the power to make it come to pass last month and he says, For so if Allah wants to bring something punishment, pain, torture, a trial upon a people, there is lamb or della who there is no way or there is no one who can repel that, or can protect them from that no one can oppose this, no one can stop this one at home in doing him well. And without Allah they have no protector and no help. I remember reading something just to show you as well connect some dots. How

01:05:45--> 01:06:04

some older philosophies as well, they have some kind of traces of Revelation. There is I believe in Chinese some of the Chinese philosophies, they said there is no there's nothing more powerful. There's nothing more powerful than a word whose time has come.

01:06:06--> 01:06:52

There's nothing more powerful than a word whose time has come. And this word what it means is to divine Word. If something is the meaning of this is something if something is meant to happen, nothing can stop it. Nothing can stop it. And for me personally, this must come from a divine divine origin. There's nothing more powerful than a word whose time has come. It's that's a divine Word. When the word of Allah comes, no one can stop it. Like, you know, the bad ones in in our country. They say I'm good, man, no mother, you know, the, whatever is written by Allah, there is no way to hide it. There's no way to hide from it. There's nothing to hide from it was written, something's

01:06:52--> 01:07:06

gonna happen. I am at the corner with Rico to welcome Tim Tebow, Jim Macedo, wherever you may be, death is going to come to you even if you are unfortified, you know towers, and so on and so forth.

01:07:10--> 01:07:45

So I'm going to stop here is good way. Good point stop here. So basically, just to summarize and recap. Allah subhanaw taala. He was talking about himself, spoken about his mind, he's talking about his power. And you can see when you recite these verses that Allah is in control of everything. Allah is in control of everything. By the way, one of the reasons why the Quran why it's important to read the Quran in our times, when most people are watching the news and seeing what's happening. You know, when you have excessive focus on what's happening outside, you might lose faith. You might lose faith, people will say, I want to know what is happening in the world. Well, good. But have you

01:07:45--> 01:07:54

balanced this out with knowing the context of everything that is happening? Because if you see a lot of this the suffering, your mind is going to question Where is Allah?

01:07:56--> 01:08:06

Why is this happening to the Muslims? Aren't we upon the truth? Why is this happening? But this is why it's important to read the Quran because the Quran is going to provide you with a context for everything that's happening. So when things happen,

01:08:07--> 01:08:11

and you keep reminding me because we humans, Allah Subhan Allah says

01:08:14--> 01:08:16

about about humans.

01:08:20--> 01:08:21

Humans are forgetful.

01:08:22--> 01:08:38

Humans are forgetful that we forget. If you don't remind yourself of something, even though at some level, you know it's there, but your mind will forget about it and will act as if it's not there is why it's important to remind as well as fortresses where that could fit in a declutter for more meaning

01:08:39--> 01:08:54

and remind because the reminder benefits the believers. So when you recite Quran and look at these things that Allah is in charge, Allah is in control. Everything happens is by the decree of Allah and by the power and by the knowledge and by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala.

01:08:55--> 01:09:33

And Allah subhanaw taala everything happens according to a precise measure. So there's nothing random. Humans evil humans are not taking over the world. Yeah, whatever they do, they're doing this and Allah is allowing this to happen for a very good reason. For a very good end. So these people are not doing things in spite of Allah or, or against the will of Allah. No, these things are happening. Allah is in control. Allah is allowing these things to happen, although they seem to be overwhelming, but good things are gonna come out of this. So when you see when you keep connected to the Quran, this is going to help you put things that are happening in place, so they're not

01:09:33--> 01:09:59

overwhelm your mind and your emotions. So this is why it's important to keep this in mind that Allah is in charge. Allah controls everything. Allah knows everything. Everything's happening. We live in a universe where there is no mistakes. There's no mistakes. There's nothing random happens. Nothing happens against the will of Allah. nothing slips, Allah's Will or attention. Don't worry about this. No one wins anything against Allah. No one

01:10:00--> 01:10:35

So keep this in mind is going to help you put whatever the news, whatever happens around, you're going to put it in context, you will be able to see things, even your personal circumstances when they are overwhelming. At least there will be something in your mind that knows that Allah is merciful. Allah is in charge, things will be okay. Even though I don't see what's happening or what will happen, I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can put my trust in Allah and let things go, Allah is not going to take care of me. By the way, that's the meaning of the word meaning of our code is not when you see you know how things are going to work out real to what happens when

01:10:35--> 01:11:02

you don't see any hope. Physically, like practically speaking, you don't see any hope. You don't see how things are gonna work out. And you just somehow put your trust in Allah and you know, Allah is gonna get you out of the situation. That's what to Aquila is, but when you know what's going to happen, everyone can have to look good, right? Everyone can have to look, but real debacle is when you don't see any hope you don't see any way out. But you know, because of your knowledge of Allah, you know, Allah is going to get you out of this.

01:11:03--> 01:11:06

And you trust so

01:11:07--> 01:11:10

100 I see a lot of insights mashallah, in this

01:11:11--> 01:11:19

surah Joseph Allah here for your patients and your attendance. So let's I'm gonna read them how to do it yourself. Send them any questions before we move on? can take a couple

01:11:21--> 01:11:22

more questions.

01:11:24--> 01:11:26

Could you just explain to me the part about

01:11:28--> 01:11:32

speaking about Allah without the knowledge, which part?

01:11:34--> 01:11:57

The whole thing kind of just over my head, and the whole thing, what I'm saying sometimes people promise things, we humans we say, we promise or Allah. On behalf we promised on behalf of Allah, we say if you do this, Allah is gonna give you this, right? But when we don't have good knowledge of Allah and we just claim this, we put people in fitna,

01:11:58--> 01:12:39

we put people in fitna so when I said I was speaking specifically about what we were they call the Arab Spring, there are some maybe well meaning the right people, but the problem is they did not what I believe consult with his colleagues who can read the situation more deeply. So some of these good, maybe they went around to people and they said, Yes, you go against oppression. And you do this and you do that. And Allah promised victory, because you guys have like, one of the DUA really what He said He said will lie he will lie he said will lie. I see it like the light will lie you guys are given victory. Like I will, I will lie in the corner monsoon I can see with Morgana eyes.

01:12:39--> 01:13:01

And two years later this guy until today, May Allah guide him. We don't talk about hearts, but at least we criticize the what externally happened. Basically, he was crying on TV saying please help these people, please these people are in trouble. These Muslims in this specific country are in trouble. And these people need help. And the Muslims have let them down.

01:13:03--> 01:13:40

And subhanAllah some somebody put both clips together and he said Look at this. You promised them and he said Elia is gonna is coming soon. And he actually gave a date. He said like the year this the turn of the new year, will Allah He you will be victorious and you're going to clear your country. And the new the new video was actually about a year and a half later. And he was crying saying Help me these people and they are this is done to them. And this is done to them. And Muslims have let them down and so on and so forth. So that's the issue. I'm saying people give promises on behalf of Allah without having proper knowledge. This is why scholars have a deeper insight like

01:13:40--> 01:13:48

Shifen 70. Nia, yes, the Muslims in Damascus fought against the, the Tsar or the moguls, and

01:13:50--> 01:13:51

they fought and they were outnumbered.

01:13:53--> 01:14:22

But there was something different than even to me I said, Well Allah He in and Allah Montserrado he said, Mala Mala, I can, like he said we are we are victorious as if he was seeing what was going to happen. So some people said to him, say in sha Allah, he said in sha Allah Tapi and that Allah, He said, Inshallah, what I'm saying in sha Allah, that it is happening. I'm not saying this, that hopefully or perhaps not, I'm saying in sha Allah, emphatically, it's happening. I know it is, as I know as here. That's what he means.

01:14:23--> 01:14:59

But that's a that's a scholar, that's a different score. And there are what they say Allah in the signs that show exactly what he was talking about. But people will have some knowledge about Islam. That's enough to advise people in their personal affairs and pray and worship and fast which is good. But when they get into these big issues, and ignore with this kind of set, so they give people false hope. And they say that's from Allah. Allah causes people fitna, because these people who got into some of these issues, they said, you know, where's Allah? If Allah is there, where does he allow this to happen? And there are Muslims unfortunately, who have been

01:15:00--> 01:15:03

Through trouble and the recent events, they left Islam.

01:15:04--> 01:15:15

They left Islam. Some of them even became Christians when they saw how the missionary helped them, give them shelter and so on and so forth with all this kind of trouble, and she was dumb to me He says

01:15:17--> 01:15:46

his beautiful quote, he says, UK thoroughly Muslimeen occur on Mussolini in low Earth look at him will fit in our oil fitna. verta 200 Islam says many people, a lot of the Mohit great majority among the Muslims, if they were exposed to trials they would give up Islam. So he says it's better for them to keep them without trials keep them safe just like they are and expose them to fitna He will save them from the Hellfire they'll go into paradise. But if they are offered so many trials

01:15:48--> 01:16:24

they will lose faith so they're they're just sort of on the edge on the edge so hamdulillah keep them there don't don't get them into Victor it's not a point the process and and said let the man know the call out. I do like an elevator Mohan hospital. Don't wish to meet your enemy. Don't wish to meet your enemy. But if you meet them, be patient and fight them. But don't wish for trials. Don't search for trials keep yourself safe. It's because I've always people wanting to argue with them. Speak with them. No, no, my religion I don't argue with you. But here what I have to say is I know what my Islam is I'm gonna hold on to it. I have nothing to do with where you want to say you

01:16:24--> 01:16:41

want you need to argue you're gonna argue with someone else. I don't want to hear that. Don't expose yourself. And this is why again, think was finitary he said, man I mean Allah Allah called the tophatter in celebra. Who who ever feel safe about his Eman for the blink of an eye Allah might take his the man away.

01:16:42--> 01:16:46

Don't expose yourself to fitna play safe with Allah always play safe.

01:16:48--> 01:16:56

I hope this answers your question. Bala coffee, no more questions. Sharing experience. Yeah, the place where I work

01:16:57--> 01:16:58

is a reflection of their

01:17:00--> 01:17:03

great anything. And

01:17:04--> 01:17:06

that happens a lot. I try to pray as much as I can.

01:17:08--> 01:17:17

So on every event estate, there is a group of Christians who meet together and they have a different way of expressing their faith.

01:17:20--> 01:17:22

Once I experienced that the person

01:17:23--> 01:17:25

his name was Mohamed something

01:17:26--> 01:17:35

and he changed his religion from Muslim to Christianity. And when I heard that my heart was crying from inside and

01:17:36--> 01:17:47

so he had half Christian name and half Muslim name. So Muhammad something I don't remember the next half. So the group of people are asking him so what do we call it? We call you the Christian name or the Muhammad name.

01:17:48--> 01:18:02

And for some reason, they were emphasizing on the Christian name, but he said no, I like Muhammad. So you can call me mo or Muhammad, but I liked that name. So so that was the thing but from inside I was literally

01:18:09--> 01:18:11

blamed for the loss of a

01:18:12--> 01:18:13

lot of coffee.

01:18:15--> 01:18:15

We'll see
