# Mufti Menk – New Form Of Time Measurement

AI: Summary © The transcript describes the concept of distance as meters or kilometers and how it is used to describe the speed of light. It is noted that scientists use time to describe distance, but the use of time is not a fundamental science. The use of time is used to measure distance and is used as a metric for the length of time people will be waiting for.
00:00:00 --> 00:00:02

And then he he is directed further towards

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

his own Jannah. Jannah means a garden. You

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

have a garden as we said, minimum

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

garden is not mentioned by is not,

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

measured by meters or kilometers.

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

You see when the Hadith speaks of

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

mention of distance

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

by travel.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:24

Distance.

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

Listen to this very carefully, some very very

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

important point.

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

The distance,

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

we know it as meters and kilometers.

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

The Prophet

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

1400 years ago,

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

he used

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

a different measurement to describe distance. What was

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

that?

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

Time.

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

He used time to describe

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

distance.

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

If I were to ask you who is

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

the first person to use time to describe

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

distance, you have to say Muhammad sallallahu alaihi

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

wa sallam.

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

Today, scientists use time to describe distance.

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

What is a light year?

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

So they say, it's 15 light years away,

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

4 light years away. SubhanAllah.

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

The distance,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

the speed of light

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

for 4 whole years, that is called 4

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

light years.

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

Who started that? Muhammad salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

Where did he get it from? Why?

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

Revelation.

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

So don't think these people are a big

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

deal. They came up with something that was

00:01:22 --> 00:01:25

already there. But people said, how is this

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

described as 2000 years of distance?

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

It says, 2000 years. Didn't I say moments

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

ago? A traveler would travel 2000 years. That's

00:01:33 --> 00:01:36

the distance of the smallest garden.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

Today, they actually tell you, yes, years can

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

the term year can actually

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

you be used to measure distance. Allahu Akbar.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

A few years ago it would be foolish.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

If I told you for example,

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

you know, how high is that? And you

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

say 3 seconds.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

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

You'd be foolish. People would say, what are

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

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

we need to know this.

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

It is Islam that came up with the

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

use

00:02:05 --> 00:02:09

of time to measure distance, Allahu Akbar, subhanAllah.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

And this is for paradise more than anything

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

else. And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala speaks of

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

this. So this man, when he gets to

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

his own garden,

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

he sees the pathway leading to it full

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

of pebbles of gold and silver

00:02:21 --> 00:02:25

and different types of pearls and and rubies

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

and so on and he the door is

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

open automatically

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

and he sees even a bigger light and

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

that happens to be the gatekeeper of his

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

own garden.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

And as he enters,

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

he has a peep at what's going on,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

1 foot in, 1 foot out and he

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

is waiting And he's looking, and he's seeing.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

500 years passed and he's still watching. Wallahu

00:02:48 --> 00:02:48

Akbar.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

Wow. This is mine. Like we said, you

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52

neither hungry nor you fool, but he's just

00:02:52 --> 00:02:53

watching.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

Because if it was us, you know, lunchtime

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

If it was the dunya.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

So he's looking until he is told, are

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

you not going to come in? And who's

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

telling him that? The who?

00:03:04 --> 00:03:07

You're not going to come in? SubhanAllah. We

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to grant us

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

this Jannah. Allah will be working towards it.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

And we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to

00:03:13 --> 00:03:14

bless us in every single way.
