Allah is granting you Subhan Allah Hara bland I mean, like Kareem Salah Watanabe Marana hola como Mata, those are the ones who are rightly guided.

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

They are the ones who are rightly guided so my brothers and sisters never lose hope in the mercy of Allah. You know, in other verses of the Quran Allah says el Medina taboo, La Jolla, Nova Lyrica to Berlin, after he mentions the sinful and those who have lost hope in the mercy of Allah, those who have turned away from Allah, those who disbelieve, etc. In verse number 160, Allah says, The exception is for those who have turned back to Allah, they've made amends, they've corrected their ways, and they have clarified and made clear, Allah says, For them, I will forgive them because I am the oft Forgiving, the Most Merciful. You know, when Allah says, I'm the oft Forgiving, the web is

00:00:53--> 00:01:29

someone who continually accepts the Toba of the same person. So every time you turn back to Allah, you must know Allah has forgiven you, and you turn back to him again and again and again. Allah will forgive you a million times, don't lose hope, he is a web he continues to accept the tober coming from the same person, as many times as it comes, no losing of hope. May Allah forgive all of us, I mean, a cola cola or sallallahu wasallam Allah Baraka, Allah Nabina Muhammad, WA known as xeno, Minato. Nima

00:01:56--> 00:02:58

Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. My brothers and sisters, Allah refers to himself as R Rahman r Rahim. And he says he is the Lord the one and only he is the one who created. So in verse number 163 of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah says, We're Isla hokum, Illa, Anwar and your Lord, the one who is worthy of worship, when we talk of Allah, it is to do with the worshipping of the one who made you so that you we say here your Lord is the one Lord illawarra Hayden, he is one. He is not a part of a company. He's not a part of a partnership. He doesn't have those who've helped him or assist him. He doesn't have deputies, etc. In terms of advice, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us an

00:02:58--> 00:03:55

understanding. He is the One Lord, the Supreme, the owner of every single thing. He is the only one who is old worship. And Allah says La Ilaha Illa who there is none worthy of worship besides Him, whoever made you made me and made the entire creation, and whoever I'm going to return to he is the only one deserving of worship and worthy of worship. So now Illa Illa, who and who is he are Rahmani Raheem, He is the Most Merciful, the most forgiving, Most Merciful obviously mercy and forgiveness comes hand in hand. But Ar Rahman and Rahim we've spoken about it I can quickly repeat that R Rahim is a specialized mercy for those who believe and man is a quality of mercy that encompasses all the

00:03:55--> 00:04:26

creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah tells us he's created all these creatures, and he wants us to think about what else he has created. Because in that, there will be a lot of healing for you. When you sit and watch the ends and look at how they operate. You learn about the bees and the birds. You learn about the butterflies and you learn about for example, the the other animals, the wildlife that we call it, you learn about

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

the plants, the seas, the oceans, the fish, the millions of types of flora and fauna, the birds and what ever else you have the heavens and the earth, the planets, the skies, the stars, the earth, the different types of soil and so much more everything around you, humankind, the cells, the DNA, whatever else you're going to learn. Allah subhanho wa Taala has instructed you to look into it to ponder over it to learn about it. So that's an amazing

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

mazing instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in verse number 163, of surah, Al Baqarah in equality, some 31 only joaquina in lane one,

00:05:15--> 00:06:10

one for you kidding, let integrity even, indeed in the creation of the skies and the earth, hungry somato and in the movement of the day and the night, and in the movement of the ship on the sea, let the different body demand foulness in a way that benefits people and that which Allah has sent it down in terms of rain from the sky as in thinking about all of these things and pondering over them. Allah subhanho wa Taala says law yet in the old Alibaba, in their science for those with sound intellect, so under it Nick Omen, Yaki loon in there there are science for those of for people who are intelligent, those who have brains Subhanallah, those who have an understanding, they will look

00:06:10--> 00:07:01

into all of these creatures in order for that education to bring them closer to Allah. So no matter how highly educated you are, if your education brought you closer to Allah, you will heal very quickly with all the other difficulties coming in your life and you will have a hope of a beautiful hereafter. But if your education has driven you away from Allah, something is wrong, something is amiss. You need to always be guided by what Allah has sent down. So I will learn and I will look but I will never contradict what Allah has revealed because ultimately I firmly believe that what Allah has revealed is the truth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So we need to understand this.

00:07:01--> 00:07:13

Allah wants us to ponder, Allah has asked us to think about things. Allah has asked us to look into these matters and to study them, study everything that Allah has created.

00:07:16--> 00:07:43

mountains or allow him in the summer in May risking for IRB in Arvada multi hub, or both the fee Harmon colada, how Allah has caused the plants to grow after rain, and how Allah has created animals and all these creatures that walk on earth. And Allah has caused the winds to blow and this clouds to come. And all this geography, biology, physics,

00:07:44--> 00:08:37

chemistry, everything is included in this. So those who say we should not allow ourselves to be educated, well, this verse is refuting them. And there is there are other verses that are similar. We're allies telling you to ponder over it to learn about it. ponder over it and try and understand the greatness of Allah through learning about these creations of Allah. Personally, I'm intrigued by the other planets, and how they're discovering, you know, different planets every day. As science is expanding, like I said, we will not take in what is contradicting what Allah has revealed, indeed. But it's very good to know as much as you can. And this education, the primary purpose of it is to

00:08:37--> 00:09:00

be able to achieve closeness of Allah by understanding the creation of Allah a little bit and pondering over it. This is why Allah says in liko miniapp de Lune. And in another verse, he says, the only Alibaba you know it these are Signs for those who have understanding those who are educated those who

00:09:01--> 00:09:12

Subhan Allah have sound intellect, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us with a great understanding of it. Now once we have this, understand
