Nothing on Earth has value in the eyes

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03

of Allah. Nothing.

00:00:04 --> 00:00:06

A Hadith I mentioned in the past, and

00:00:06 --> 00:00:07

I want to repeat it again because it

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

is superb. It is superb. And let me

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

give you an introduction to the Hadith. You

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

know, if you are to catch a flight,

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

you drive to the airport, mash Allah. You

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

get to the airport. You jump onto the

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

aircraft. And what happens thereafter?

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

Subhanallah.

00:00:22 --> 00:00:23

You take off. When you take off, you

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

start noticing things becoming smaller

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

and smaller.

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

Right? As they become smaller,

00:00:30 --> 00:00:33

you can barely see the cars and the

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

buildings. And there comes a point when you

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

cross 20,000

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

feet above sea level and you can barely

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

see the buildings.

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

And then you go beyond that to 40

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

and you can see nothing.

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

But in that nothing that you can see,

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

there is something.

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

In that nothing that you can see, there

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

are 50,000 people, each one thinking he's the

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

boss. Each one having his own perfume and

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

clothes and everything else and accessories,

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

and each one having a motor vehicle and

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

a house perhaps, and family members and feelings,

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

and each one having the eyes. Yet Allah

00:01:04 --> 00:01:05

says, you know what? If you look at

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

that,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

you yourself cannot see it. That's how insignificant

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

it is. The only thing you need to

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

do is come a little bit lower and

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

things become bigger for you. So Allah is

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

the greatest and the highest. For Him, it's

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

nothing. The Hadith says, and this is the

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

Hadith I was introducing.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

If everyone from the beginning of creation to

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

the end of creation

00:01:25 --> 00:01:28

were to ask Allah Almighty for every single

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

thing he or she wanted and Allah were

00:01:31 --> 00:01:34

to give you every single thing you ever

00:01:34 --> 00:01:34

wanted,

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

It would not decrease

00:01:38 --> 00:01:41

from the kingdom of Allah, except that

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

which is equivalent to the water that is

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

displaced from the ocean when a needle is

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

dipped in for a moment. That's it.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

You dip a needle into the ocean. How

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

much does it displace?

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

0. Allah says, well, from the beginning of

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

mankind to the end of mankind, if I

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

were to give every one of you every

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

single thing you ever wanted, it would not

00:02:01 --> 00:02:03

even displace that much of mine. How do

00:02:03 --> 00:02:04

you know? I can tell you today we

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

can understand it because of technology.
