la mina shaytaan rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shopping mursaleen Sayidina Muhammad in LA early he was in our beloved brothers in Islam Islam while yquem rahmatullah wa barakato
How y'all doing?
Are you at 50% 80% 100% 100% Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah I must say that we are quite impressed at the way the machine has come in and made such a big effort to to block out the light and the the numbers that are Yeah, I know. It's Ramadan. It's tiring, it's difficult.
Mel likes it from us what we've done so far from Allah grant us to increase in the what remains of Ramadan, between us and Jenna are just these three weeks, three weeks. If we work very hard these three weeks and we get the full Baraka of it. inshallah, we can go to Jenna. And that's that's really what Allah has put between us. And, and Jen, I mean, so this presentation in sha Allah, the journey through the heavens and beyond.
Ideally, it's a it's a different way of looking at the Sauron, the Mirage nine I'm getting my seasons mixed up. It's Ramadan, are we talking about Mirage, but it's talking about the greatness of Allah and our relationship and closest with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'd like to take you through this journey, that if you were to travel on the exact same journey as the Nabi sallallahu sallam, if you got a ticket to go with him on the serrana Mirage, what would you see along the way, and that's inshallah what we're going to do today. So from there, let's begin our presentation in sha Allah.
As you all know, I'm sure when you did the meet when you when you did with Chef Mirage chef explained to you the Mirage happened at a time when the prophet SAW Selim was going through the worst year of his life. He lost a butadiene, who was the closest person and protector who raised him. It was like he lost his father, and Abu Talib. Not only did he die, but he died and Cooper. The prophets of Salaam could not save him from this belief, and this obviously made an abyssal Salaam feel extremely, extremely heartbroken and devastated. He also lost a week later, her region of the land and the soul mate of the NaVi salsa lamb. And throughout his life, NaVi salsa lamb would feel
sad, when he would think of her deja vu. You know her these are the law she had a sister. And when her sister would walk, and the visa salon would see her footprints in the sand. He would feel sad and say those feet those footprints were like hideous footprints. I don't know how many of us husbands know the shape and footprints of our wife's feet. Right? But this is our Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and there was something in his heart that belonged to Khadija. And when she died, that part always hurt.
And in the worst day of his life,
what was the worst day of his life? I'm gonna give away three arcotherm ticket servers.
Right? I'm going to give some prizes some what prizes do we have? We have some alcocer tickets we'll give away we'll give away some buka treats.
Most of the moment will handle islamized and we do the buka treats. Right so chef bouquet treats. Right so we've got some bouquet treats also to giveaway insha Allah what was the worst day of the life of NaVi Salas Allah? Who knows? Yes.
of one. No, no. Put your hand up. Okay. Yes. The day of life Marshal love the show this off the remind us we give you your price. The day of the day the profits are seldom went to the city Five. Five is a little town next to Makkah. Now imagine now visa Salam is giving power to the people of Mecca calling them for 10 years more than 10 years and they reject him. They don't want to listen. So he goes to the city next door. Maybe they will listen. And they treat him even worse. They treat him so bad. And they're about to kill him stoning to death that he runs back to Makkah salatu salam back to Abuja back to Abu lahab say those people are even worse than Abu Jihad and Abu lahab. And I
showed the Allah and he asked that I be so Salaam, basically, what day was the worst day in your life? And he said that they have thought and then they'd be so sick and felt so bad. So sad. so heartbroken emotionally personally. He didn't know what to do with the dour. He Sahaba had no way to go. And Allah subhana wa tada within given a piece of Salaam this amazing gift. So one of the lessons we learn when we go through hardship and difficulty for the sake of Allah. Allah does not does not ignore us. Allah knows what's happening.
And if we have sovereign patience, what Allah gives in return is so much more than the difficulty. So as a gift Allah gave the prophets of Salaam, this journey
So the journey another if we can rewind our minds to the Mirage time that they were two journeys that this the SLR and the Mirage are two journeys, what's the straw?
the straw is the domestic flight from Makkah to Palestine, the short journey, the Mirage is the big journey from Moses saw all the way up through some animal 1234567 above the semi walk to the arch and above the arch to Allah subhanaw taala. So there are two journeys, the sorrow and the marriage is always the short journey to Palestine. And the marriage is the longest journey and today inshallah we will be focusing more on the marriage, the Israel was taken on the bedrock. That was that was, it doesn't have beans, this thing between a horse and a donkey, which can travel at the speed of light. Do you know the word buraq, which comes from
Baroque Baroque is lightning. So he's called buraq, who is is as fast as lightning, the buraq took the prophets of Salaam from Makkah to Palestine. But even buraq is not fast enough to go on marriage.
Alright, so we were talking about the marriage. And when we go through this, we're going to do a little bit about astronomy, we're going to go through space. And as we go through the creations of a law, this is playing in your mind in the Holocaust, similar to a lot of that indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the changing of the night and the day of signs for those of understanding or if or things to make us reflect. ballerina you have kurunegala
km and welcome Odin Raja juubi him that those who remember a law standing and sitting and lying with a Corona fee colicky, sumati will out and they think deeply about the creations of the heavens and the earth. And you must think deeply. When you see some today in sha Allah, I hope you will see amazing things that will blow your mind behind Allah. I never knew it was that amazing. And when you think of how amazing those things are, you must think how amazing is the creator? How amazing is the one who made this? Mahabharata heard about that? Oh Allah, you did not create all of these things just for fun, for no use. Without any purpose. There must be a reason Suba Hanukkah glory and
Exalted are You 13 other than to save us yeah, Allah from all the punishments of the fire and all the punishments save us from being unmindful of you a lot.
Right so let's imagine taking this journey
and I'm so I said, Imagine, you know, the prophets of Salaam and jabril are going on this journey. And they say, you know what, this one ticket for someone to go with him. So first thing is you get your visa, you come to Makkah, you get on the buraq and together you travel at the speed of light from Makkah to Palestine. At Palestine. We know that our visa Salaam made the Gambia and made Sala at Masood Luxor,
you have a new journey to go all the way up to Samoa. Now I want us to visualize this journey. And let's start with something very cool. The tallest building in the world is
British Khalifa in Dubai. Right? This is the tallest building that humanity has made. It's about 800 meters in the sky.
It's about the height of Table Mountain. Right so for us if you're on top of Table Mountain, it's about the height of this building. So we should supernova This is the the most advanced, the brightest, the best of brains that humanity can do is we built a building 800 meters high. It's like standing on top of Table Mountain this building and Table Mountain are almost similar in height. And let's keep going up what else would we see? Now when you on top of the Buddhist califa you think wow, I'm on top of the world. But how far is that to table to Mount Everest? That's virtually for over the
Cebu sharifah 800 meters up. But if you wanted to go further and further and further up, and the highest point on earth is Mount Everest.
How high is Mount Everest? About 8.6 kilometres of meaning 11 table mountains put on top of one another 11 Burj Khalifa stacked on one another is the tallest mountain or the tallest point on earth is actually a bigger mountain than Mount Everest, but it's under the ocean.
is a mountain bigger than Mount Everest? About 11 kilometres big, but it's under the ocean, because we only see the top of it. So if you on top of Mount Everest almost nine kilometres in the sky, you might think, Wow, I'm really high up. But if I can just jump high enough I can touch the arch of a lot, right? That's how high I am.
Alright, so now you're on top of Mount Everest and you think, okay, Lucas mobile califa is compared to what Allah has built on this earth, how much higher must I go if I want to get to the moon.
But I've got nine kilometres up in the sky, I want to go further and further up, and I want to get to the moon.
He has Mount Everest, again. And that's the rest of the sky.
So when you look up at the sky, and you see that moon
This is where planes fly. And I as a chef mentioned, I studied accounting, math, geography. So a lot of these things are new to me, you know, the me Sofia and the stratosphere. I'm sure some of you might even know better than me. But basically, if you on top of Mount Everest, which we see this how high How high is Mount Everest
eight, eight kilometres or eight oh, say let's say nine kilometres up, if you wanted to go further up and leave the earth, how much higher is the sky, you need to go about 100 kilometres
100 kilometres of planes fly at about if you any of you in a plane, you flying basically at the height of Mount Everest. So in a plane, that's about how high Mount Everest is, you still got another 80 kilometres to go before you become an astronaut before you leave the earth. So between us and the end of our Earth, 100 kilometres up in the sky panela makes you realize how big this earth is, How amazing is this earth.
And once you go further and further up, you leave the earth, this is what you see our home.
Almost 7 billion people,
countries and cities, buildings, waterfalls, mountains, all of that in this amazing place we called Earth. And you know, the prophets of Salaam says whoever makes to rock as soon as the touriga sooner before foger is more precious to Allah in this world and everything inside it. It's like you're giving all of this in charity, that tour of the asuna of Azure. So how much is the forum? How much reward is the forum? Every think in your mind every time I make this to request when I was giving me one of these planets as a reward, and everything it contains of gold and wealth and people vary what is for you, Panama?
Now, I want us to understand,
we have left the earth, you're outside the earth. And I need to make an analogy to make you understand the extent of the universe.
We live in a neighborhood our planet the earth we live Where do you live? What was your planet called?
The kids you must know that. Soon inshallah, you might have a fin pal on another planet, when you say I'm a hermit. I live in Lotus river in South Africa, in a place called Earth, right in sha Allah. So our planet, the Earth is part of a neighborhood. And maybe to make you understand this analogy, because our minds will stop working. And I guarantee you, all of us, our minds will eventually stop working. But that's my challenge for you is I can't anymore. And I imagine you are on a road, you're on the into
like you driving down through the into and as you pass, you're gonna pass the front door piece. Yes, little towns, some big some small. And in those doorways, you have all these. You have different buildings, some big some small. Now you driving through the universe, you're going to pass our neighborhood our little door piece called the solar system, which has nine buildings inside it.
So you're driving costs on the into you see the story called solar system, you say okay, let me go see visit KFC. And I want to make you guys hungry. You turn off, you go inside and you see if there's only nine buildings in this story. You've got this massive big factory,
this huge factory, and you've got eight little buildings around it. One of those buildings is earth. And what do we think? The pictures Give me the way but do we think the earth compared to our neighbors is one of the bigger buildings are one of the smaller buildings, think about the people, 7 billion people, all the buildings, all the mountains, everything in our planet, how big it is? Do we think it's one of the bigger buildings in our neighborhood. One of the
It's one of the smaller ones. Our neighborhood we say these made up of nine structures, we've got the massive sun, that sun that you see that we see. That's the sun. That's the center of our neighborhood of our solar system. And around the eight planets, we have the eight planets, that's our planet Earth. Look at our neighbors, how big they are. Look how big our our planets are compared our neighbors compared to us. So if we are in this little dorky town, Earth is one of the smaller buildings in the we don't have the big house or the big building with a little tiny house. how big or how small is the earth,
the earth compared to one of our neighbors compared to one of us, compared to the sun.
Basically, you could fit 1 million Earths inside the sun.
1 million of us can fit inside that sun that we see in the sky like a little ball, 1 million Earth's can fit inside it.
Now you begin to understand quantum law. And all the stuff we're fighting for all that is just a million, the sun is a million times bigger. A million Earth inside they begin to understand the size of the sun.
every Torpy every town again, we take this journey. So you pulled off What's our town called? What's the name of our town? solar system, right? That's the name of our time the solar system. every town you find every little Dorothy will have a big factory called a star. You know, the sun is a star. You all know that.
All those little dots in the sky. Those are sons. Those are sons. So every little town, every door has a star in the middle, and it has planets around it. We understand our solar system. It's called the sun. eight planets. One of them is the earth. And it's one of the smaller planets in the solar system. How many Earths within the sun.
1 million Earth's fit inside our star the sun. So you pulled over solar system you saw you know what? There is no KFC in this town. Let me go further. I want to go to the next door to find my KFC.
How far do you think you need to travel from our town, our daughter to the next town?
Let's see. So you've got the son year, we are all the different planets, you have to go from our town to the next star. The next door the closest star to us after the sun for a prize for for a prize. Who knows what the name of that star is ends up
Alpha Centauri. That's the name of the closest star to our to our solar system. So you're going down the highway, your solar system there is the sun leaves the earth you don't displace is very small. You don't want to stay there, you pull out and you see on the GPS, the closest place is called alpha cintura. That's the next stop. How long would it take for you to drive the let's see.
To explain this.
If you were to you want to go from our solar system to Alpha Centauri, how long will it take you? Well, let's put it this way. The fastest theme, the what's the fastest thing in the universe? a Ferrari.
Okay, that's a very good answer. Morocco has a very, very good answer. And I
block travels at the speed of light. So in science, what is the fastest thing that we have? Not a plane? Not a rocket? What is it?
light. Light is the fastest thing in the entire universe. There is nothing that we know that goes faster than light. How fast does light go 300,000 kilometres in one second.
That's how fast light travels. To put into perspective. Light can go around the Earth eight times in one second to eight times around the Earth. That's how fast light travels. But if you were to go from here to Joburg, you could go 150 times to Joburg and back in one second.
You understand how fast is like very fast. Yes. lightspeed nothing faster than like, now we say okay, you want to go to KFC burger time. You at the sun and you say I want to go to office in today. Yours your car, it goes at the speed of light. It's going at 300,000 kilometers per second. at that speed. It will still take you five years.
That speed, it will take you five years to get to the next town on this highway.
The distance between
our solar system to our neighbor, remember, that's our neighbor. That's the person you go to when you want to borrow some sugar. That's the neighbor. He's five years away at the speed of light.
That's the distance you are beginning to understand when Allah when we speak about space, we mean it's a huge, it's move on.
Now, the sun is a star. Yes. Alpha cintura is a star. And when we when we look up at the sky at night, we see countless stars as anyone tried to count the stars. We all try and then we eventually give up right?
All those places, all those stars or stars like the sun. And what do we think? Do we think our sun is one of the biggest stars smaller stars is office into what I want to? How do we understand the stars?
And what else is out there?
Let's talk about some of the other stars. So now you again your GPS you sitting you're looking? Okay, I'm at this place called solar system. There's a softball the other son, this is tiny little planet with people that are fighting and killing each other for no reason. It's called the earth.
I don't want to stay here. Let me go to the next closest star Alpha Centauri. How long would it take me to get there? Five years of the speed of light. Even looks on his GPS. And he says Well, what other stars are out there?
Let's look at some of the stars out there in the sky.
Yeah, it's play video. So you think how big is the sun again?
How many Earths within the sun? 1 million Earth's within the sun. Now is that big or small?
Some sort of vessel so big. I've seen bigger.
The sun is quite big. But let's compare the Sun to some of the other saws in the sky.
Let's look at how big this Sun is. compared to those dots that you see in the sky. Let's compete.
Okay, we're ready.
As the technology is always the the hiccup any questions along while we get the video to work? Any questions?
Just put your hand up with the SEC. Okay, no, no questions.
Right? But not working.
Video is not working. That's quite sad, but inshallah let's see what we can do.
So what this video is going to show you it's going to take the sun compared to other stores, and you can look at the size. If 1 million Earths within the sun. How does the sun compared to other stars in the sky? And then you're going to begin to understand the size of of these other planets and the stars out there.
How's the energy levels still?
still okay. Still at 110% and then 20%? Or is it getting a bit low 75% so already the journey hasn't begun yet remember you need to go from the the the lower Samar to above the arsh You haven't even started we still going to our neighbor next door five years.
And I still fall before we get to the KFC.
It's very nice to see so many youth chef in the in the masjid. And, you know,
people usually after the word on a Saturday
to stay for a lecture like this and hamdulillah I'd say it's it's a great, it's a great pleasure. And as we see we Yes, we look at the stars and the planets and it amazes us. But at the end of the day, this is to grant us mooshu in our solar. Then when you look at these planets and the stars, you remember Subhan Allah, I'm standing before the maker of all these things, the one who controls all these things.
we're gonna have to just skip the video.
Okay, and then let's say let's let's move on.
Let's give another one minutes to any questions.
Let's see. Yes.
Yes. So, I love it's five centimeters. But you know, if you want to win a Nobel Prize, you find the alien. Right? How do you find aliens? Do you know how the if you work for play school you work for NASA, NASA, NASA, NASA, right? You they looking for aliens? All the other people out there? And how do you find that? How do you look for life? Do you know how they look for life? How do they do it?
a telescope but they're looking for when you think you're gonna see the sky is so big. You don't even know where to point the telescope. they looking for? what they call the Goldilocks zone. We all know the story of Goldilocks. She didn't eat the forage was too hot, or it was too cold. Which one did she eat? The one that was just right. So we are looking for today our scientists are astronomers are looking for a planet, which isn't too hot. It's not too cold. It's just right. They call it the Goldilocks zone. I'm not making this up. NASA says we are looking for a planet in the Goldilocks zone. And what that means is the planet if it's too close to the star stars very bright and hot,
what's going to happen to the water.
If it's too hot, what happens to water, the boil, and if it's too far away from the star what's going to happen, it's going to freeze so they're looking for planets that are innovative. And the Goldilocks zone is very small. They're looking for planets like Earth that are not too close not too far from the star so that they could be liquid water, not frozen water, not boiling water, liquid water and when you have liquid water as the Quran says that everything Allah created from water Alhamdulillah so let's play the video. Remember what this video is going to show you. This video
is very it's an amazing video. It's an amazing video. This video is going to show you the sun compared to other little the stars you see in the sky, those same dots. Let's compare them if they sat next to one another.
So we compare the moon we start off with the moon. The moon is three and a half kilometres in in diameter. Right That's what's so big. Sorry 3500 kilometres f1.
Mercury Mercury's what is a planet next to us. That's another moon on Jupiter. Right so these are all
Mars, about seven kilometres 7000 kilometres in diameter.
Venus and the earth about the same size.
That's the earth 13,000 kilometres wide
our Earth compared to another planet.
Let's look at some of our neighbors. This is Neptune. The earth is way 13,000 50,000 kilometres 51,000 kilometres is Uranus, Saturn
and 23,000 kilometres in diameter.
This is a very small store,
one of the smallest stores that we found.
And Jupiter Jupiter is the biggest planet in our neighborhood.
But that's nothing compared to some of the other
and nothing compared to stars maybe we pose the you can impose these the earth that darkness the earth compete to the other planets. And now we're going to compete stars. Stars are much bigger than planets. Let's look at our Sun.
Our planet was 13,000 kilometers The sun is 1.4 million kilometres. Sirius, the brightest star in the sky mentioned in the Quran, a Shara
These are other stars that you see in the sky. Look at our sun, how small it is. It's gone
90 million kilometres wide
and Taurus 1.2 billion kilometres wide.
Field use it was the second dispose this stock. You can actually see it tonight. Have you if you look up at the sky, do
Have you know Orion's belt? You haven't seen it. Have you seen Orion's belt? Orion, it will look like three stars next to one another. So you will how if you look up at the sky and it's clear inshallah, you will see three stars. And then there'll be four stars. Like, ah, right, there'll be four stars on top and three, so they call it Orion's belt. Orion is a hunter. So he's got a story on his shoulder, a star. Yeah, and his other shoulder, the two stars for his knees. And you got three stars here for his belt. One of those stars will be the one on the shoulder is read. That's the star, a little buck, you'll see from the sky inshallah.
One of the biggest stars that we've discovered, but is way bigger. VY Canis Majoris. 2 billion kilometres in diameter. And this the biggest star we discovered for now, UI scooty. Ui scuti biggest style that we've discovered 2.5 billion kilometres in diameter, how big is the sun? 1.4 million, this is billion with a B. How big is that compared to the sun? Really?
Let's go to the let's pause this right? We'll go to the universe later. Let's go back to our presentation.
So these are just dots in the sky, the stars or dots in the sky.
And if we were to compare that to our son,
right, that's our son. Move on.
That's our son, which has 1 million Earths compared to us.
You could fit 6 billion suns in us at
6 billion suns. In this one star.
1 million Earths in the sun. 6 billion suns in the US. And when you look you know it's as big as it is. It's so far we can't even see it. those dots you see in the sky are massive, way bigger, way bigger than our
again, if you were going at the speed just to make you understand the size of this guy, that if you are going at the speed of light, it will take you eight hours to go around the store one time. Light takes eight hours to go around this one stop. Okay.
But now you begin to think we said we are on a highway searching for KFC. Right? We've passed one place called solar system. It has a store called the sun.
Down the road five kilometer five years away is another store called alpha security. You look on the map you see the biggest star in the neighborhood is called us scooty. Now stars
they live together in the neighborhood stars now we're moving further and further out. Now we going further and further up stars. They live together in a theme called a galaxy a family of stars.
The sun, alpha cintura Beetlejuice UI scooty. They all stars in a neighborhood of stars. The biggest one being us within
our neighborhood of stars. What do we call it?
What is the name of our galaxy? The Milky Way galaxy? Okay.
please move on.
Right let's come pay stars, two galaxies.
And this shows you if we go further and further out.
What are we going to see?
So our galaxy, see the stars and I want you to have to change your perspective now. Now think of the galaxy as a city. Right? And between cities they are you know you have to drive from one city to the next. every galaxy is a city now. Now we change your mind. every galaxy is a city and every building in that galaxy is a stock. Our city our galaxy is called what? Milky Way. That's the name of our city. We've got a building in the galaxy called the sun. The biggest building in town is called us scooty. Let's look at the other cities out there.
right. If the stars were buildings, and the towns they were would be the galaxy our galaxy is called the Milky Way galaxy. How many stars like the sun is in our galaxy?
How many suns are the in our galaxy 300 billion.
again, if you are on that GPS, you have 300 billion towns 300 billion suns 300 billion US equities to get to.
Are you guys with you, your mind stopped working now? What what percent of you are now 20% minus 20%.
pause for a second. Again, close your eyes, just close your eyes. Close your eyes.
Picture a city with buildings in it. Okay.
We we live in one building, let's say called the sun. That's one building. The building next door opposite to what we can see the CBD, there's a massive building called us equity. If we go and we look at all the buildings, they are 300 billion buildings. So picture like 300 billion buildings in the city.
Now open your eyes. That city is called Milky Way.
And if you want to drive from one part of our city, our town which we live in, you wanted to go from one side of it to visit your granny on the other side of it, it will take you 100,000 years at the speed of light. This is our city, our city which has all the stars in it.
But as you know, we live in a city called Cape Town is Cape Town, the biggest city in the world
are the cities with bigger buildings, more buildings, our galaxies the same, the Milky Way. This is where you live. And you don't even live in the CBD of the city. You live in the suburbs, in the flats of the of the of the city.
All these dots are stars like the sun 300 billion of them in our town called the Milky Way. match where you live. And we'll take you 100,000 years to go from here today at the speed of light. Let's go.
What is the city next to our city? Right so we've moved from our town, which is the Milky Way galaxy to the city next door. Like if you were in Cape Town, what's the closest big city maybe? George, let's say? How long would it take for you to go from the Milky Way to the city next door. So the name of the city closest to us is called Andromeda. That's the name Andromeda. Very nice name. All right. And you'll see the names become a lot more boring later on. Why? Because we found so many cities and galaxies that we couldn't think of clever names. We just gave them numbers. So this So what's our city called?
Milky Way like the Chocolate Milky Way?
No, I'm just thinking of food. Right? Milky Way. Right so our cities called the Milky Way you picture that boat that city 300 billion stars. Our Sun is one of them. The city next door to us is called Andromeda.
And let's compare our neighbor to us.
The closest galaxy to us is called Andromeda and Andromeda is three times bigger than our city.
Okay, let's how many Earths within the sun?
1 million. How many sons set foot in us? cootie. 6 billion. And how many stars like us? scooty. Do we have in the solar cell in the galaxy? 300 billion. And now this thing is three times bigger than us. Andromeda.
And to get the you know how far it is? to get from one side of our galaxy to the other end is 100,000 years. This will take you two and a half million years to go to the town next door. You'll never do you know, how do you look into the past?
When you see the stars, you're looking in the past Why? When we look at Andromeda now, that light took two and a half million years to get to us. When we look at Andromeda today. We seen Andromeda two and a half million years ago. We're looking at the past. There are things we see in the sky that don't exist anymore. They long time did but it took like so long to get to us billions and billions of years. So when you look up in the sky, you're looking into the past.
Even when you look at the sun, you looking at the sun eight minutes in the past, it took eight minutes for the light to get me so that's our town next door Andromeda.
So what's the next question you might have?
Right? You look at these galaxies, these you Milky Way and he has Andromeda next to it will take you to an off million years to fly from our galaxy to the galaxy next door. How many stars in our Milky Way
300 billion. This guy has 1000 billion stars in the 1000 billion
And sons in this galaxy. So what's the next question? You're gonna ask me? How many galaxies are the? Yes, the Milky Way is one galaxy. Andromeda is another galaxy, what other galaxies Do we have out there? And what's the biggest galaxy?
Let's see what the biggest galaxies, the biggest galaxy is icy 1101 it's not so interesting name anymore like Andromeda Milky Way. Why? Because there's so many of them. We can't give interesting names anymore. How big is this galaxy 100 times bigger than Andromeda.
It will take you, it will take you 6 million years at the speed of light to go from one side of this galaxy to the other side. 6 million years. That's how big this galaxy is. Let's look at a play video. Look at the size.
I think that the technology is also at 50 40%. They're also passing very difficulty today. But let's look at the video.
Everything's on 50% today, right?
Now what's happening? Yeah.
It's a very good video, what's happening is you will look at the size of the universe.
No problem, we can watch the video so long.
So remember, a 2345 light years, only at five will we begin to see our other stars.
So now you going further and further up. These are all the stars in our galaxy 300 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy. And we said our Milky Way galaxy is how big into in 100,000 light years.
All those dots are stars like the sun 1 million times the earth. And this is your beautiful galaxy, the Milky Way where you live a mad Lotus that have a Cape Town, South Africa, Earth Solar System Milky Way galaxy.
That's where we live. But let's keep going further and further.
We now are going to see the Andromeda galaxy, our neighbor, which is bigger than us, and more and more galaxies.
More and more galaxies out there.
These are not stars. These are galaxies of stars.
These are not stars. These are galaxies of stars. Each dot v has billions and billions of suns in it.
That's the SR C's it's basically quite a lot. Yes.
Alright, let's get back to our PowerPoint.
remember what is this guy? What's the so what's the biggest galaxy called?
I see 1101
that galaxy is 100 times bigger than Andromeda.
Milky Way. Let's go. Let's start. Let's start again. The earth how many Earths in the sun?
1 million. How many suns in UI? scooty.
6 billion. 6 billion. How many stars like UI scooty like the sun in the Milky Way? 300 billion. How many stars in Andromeda?
1000 trillion 1000 billion. And then I see 1101 has 100 times the size of Andromeda.
I don't know the now icon. I don't know what number that is. It's too big. It takes you we said 100,000 years at the speed of light to travel from the Milky Way into n. It will take you 300,000 years across Andromeda. It will take you 6 million years in ice revenue one if you had a friend on the other side of town 6 million years at the speed of light.
So that's the biggest galaxy that we know of. But the question we might ask well how many of these galaxies
Do we have? How many galaxies are they?
Okay, how big is the universe? And we saw a video. Let me give you an example. Let me explain to you,
Hubble, have you heard of Hubble Hubble
telescope. But Hubble is named after a person called Edwin Hubble. Edwin Hubble was an astronomer, he won the Nobel Prize for discovering something which we knew 1500 years ago, what did he discover, he discovered that the universe is expanding. And he won a Nobel Prize for that. And that's why they named the telescope after him. But the Quran said this 1500 years ago that we are expanding the universe. So Edwin Hubble, they named this telescope after him. And we use this telescope, which countries his telescope in
no way it's in space, they took the telescope, and they put it outside the earth, so they could see more clearly. And when they took the first picture, they got a shock, they took a picture, the size of your thumb, if you do that on the sky, the size of your thumb, they took a picture. And this is what they saw the stuff at the back with each one of those dots being galaxies, galaxies of stars, billions and billions of stars in these in these little dots.
So they've said that every time
so at the moment, every year, I check this, when I do this presentation, they find more and more galaxies. They say that to date, they discovered 200 billion galaxies. Each was billions and billions of stars like the sun, each a million times bigger than the Earth. I know your mind now has lost track.
Billions and billions of galaxies, each one having stars to understand so this is just one picture. one cent if you made a square on the sky, one centimeter by one centimeter, this is all the galaxies you would see.
Each one as I said, these are not stars, what are these galaxies with billions of stars inside it.
Just on that, those billions and billions of stars and galaxies, we are still discovering more and more and more each time. And last now we going this is as far as we know. I so far the presentation what I've given you is what we know from science. But we know Allah says that there are seven some our and this is more of the what we've seen. You know, if you look at the most stars in the galaxy in the universe, then they are sand grains of sand on Earth. We've discovered more stars in the sky, than grains of sand on the earth. That's how many stars and are because a star 1 million times the earth, just one star. And we know Allah explains more and Allah says it is we have constructed the
very powerful and big the human is and we are continuously expanding it we are making more and it's getting bigger and bigger and bigger, so Han Allah 1500 years ago.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us, Sophie,
how do you feel when you went through the presentation?
When you looked at the numbers and all that you felt your mind couldn't work? A loss so look to the evens look to the sky. Do you see any problems cracks, any imperfections in the oven, follow gl basara look again.
return your vision a second time in after you study and look and look and look what's going to happen you're going to feel like you feel now you will look away humbled and tired. look alike explains that feeling? You will look at the beauty jeavons anything super heinola How big is this universe? I lost track I lost count, you will look away because your mind will become tired. Allah explains that feeling 1500 years ago, but remember, we've got seven heavens to go. The journey only has begun. I hope you you've took your particles with because we still looking for our cave See?
The stars that we see in the sky, the galaxies? Is that part of some animal 1234567 what part of it do we think?
How do we know when the brother says it's the first summer? And it's correct because Allah says while akata z and sama adonia masabi that we put in the lowest smallest summer stars. So all the galaxies of stars that we've discovered the billions and billions of stars. That's part of summer number one there was smallest one question is are you switching? Just just switching okay?
Right. So all of that is Samar number one. If you want to go to summon number two you need to pass all these things. And now we go into into some travel between some as Allah says he created some awesome art in theva layers one summer above the other. So let's keep going. You still want to go with Colossus. That's enough. I don't want to go further. You want to keep going? What else is above alpha sama. So in the first seminar, we know there are planets and stars, galaxies, all the things we see and learn. It's part of summer number one, what's in the next summer? And the others above that. Before we get to that, what do you think about life? Do you think when you look at the size of
the universe, do you feel that the aliens out there? What do you think?
What does the Quran say? Let's see if the was the IRB.
Look at this is a very interesting ayah. Allah says,
amongst his signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and all the living creatures he has scattered throughout them. Allah says that he put life throughout the heavens and the earth throughout what does that mean, but Indaba like animals. So there are animals out there in the heavens, throughout the the the aliens, they are aliens, but it might be very difficult to find them. And one brother asked, you know, so chef must be give them Tao, and are they going to come to hydrogen? And once the one once you said I don't care about all those questions, so no, can we get ready to them? Is that permissible as the only thing I am concerned about? What do you think they
all doing? What do you think the job and function is of all these things?
The same job and function of you and me and the sun, which is to worship Allah. The sun is a Muslim. What is a Muslim? A Muslim is something which submits to Allah it obeys the command of Allah, Allah command for the sun is to do to do what? Rise and sit, the moon must move the earth must move the wind, everything submits to Allah. Well, Allah says, he mentioned Allah season sudo Rahman was when Nigeria student that the stars and the trees makes sujood for Allah, these billions and billions of stars, they make sujood for Allah everything in the universe is a Muslim it obeys Allah except in sign engine we we can choose that we know of Swan Allah everything else makes you do to Allah
now let's go from one semi Now we go back to the salami, Raj, let's go back to an abyssal Salah, then Ibiza Salaam
is going to leave Palestine and go up to the seventh even and beyond. He would go up and he would pass the earth, the moon, the sun, the planets, the stars, and he would go to summon number two. Now how big is a man number one compared to Sam and number two? In a hadith the Prophet Allah says if you compete our dunya our sama to the next summer. Our summer is like a ring thrown in the desert, where we are the ring and the desert is the next summer. So we are tiny compared to the next summer.
How do you travel? Now? One of you should be very clever and say what if a light takes how many billions of years to go from one side of the universe to the next? How would it not be so solemn and gibreel go up the same hour? How do you travel? Even even life is too slow, too slow? Yes. Even light takes you five years to go to the neighbor. So how do you travel in the summer what you need a shortcut. And alessian sootel marriage Minna la he's in marriage to Allah from Allah. He owns shortcuts through the sky. There are shortcuts that the angels and through the road meaning gibreel will seem to him during a day the extent of 50,000 years, but even the angels can fly up and down
it's too big. Even buraq can go up and down. It's too big. You need a shortcut. And those shortcuts are called the marriage is a surah in the Quran of the Surah tabarrok Manila hidden marriage a mirage it means literally it's a lift to the resource element video got onto a lift and that lifted them up
so what did they see as they went up and let's keep going.
All of them split all the Ambien
and this for this part you already know in your marriage This is where you'll Mirage talks usually begin the winner bees also lamb left this summer and he crossed over to the second summer he may not be Adam and then in the second he went to the third he may be Isa and nebia here and so forth now the use of libido recently harrowby musen. Ebrahim the ambia don't love they, but they were put at each summer to meet an alum and at every summer. What happens when you come into a new country? What must you do? stamp your visa go for immigration and every summer has got
This immigration where you have to go the angels will ask and the angels asked in the visa Salam and gibreel do you have permission to come through from one summer to the next video said yes, we've got visas and they went across and they went through and each summer now visa Salah meet the different ambia
for different reasons. Let's move on. And we don't know what is in so just go with it go back. We don't know. In some are number one. This is where we live. We know about the stars and the planets. But in summer number 23456 we don't know what's the Nemesis we didn't tell us but in some and number seven. Now we saw a few things. And some of the things he saw. Let's talk about some of them quickly.
Now these are some of them. So a place called Beatty, l'amour. And this is a place mentioned in the in the Quran. Waiting Mahmoud What is it? It is the harem of the angels. So like we have a carrabba and a marker here on Earth. The angels also have a mecca where they go and they make Hajj and they make fall off and they make sujood and this Masjid baiting Mahmoud Masjid the purpose of some says that if the baiting Mahmoud were to collapse, it is directly in line with a Kava it will fall on top of maca. And every day 70,000 angels can go the for one day in their life they can visit one day mix Allah and they can never come again. So don't feel so bad. Even the angels have a sock and photos
and those things. Even the angels have that they can only go one day in a life in the whole life one day and they can never come back. Are you also amazing about beating Mahmoud when abbyson solvated Mahmud, he saw NaVi Ibrahim the NaVi Brahim was put there to meet him and he brought him was he was like relaxing, like sitting like back, just relaxing. Now the angels when they come to me, they've got one day they need to do all the bidat and they must leave. Now Ebrahim has like a lifetime pass in Britain marble, he can be there as long as he wants. Why? Why does he have access to the harem of the summer because he both the Kaaba in the dunya. So Allah gives him that been a blessing. Let's
Now visa Salam also meet Malik, and who is Malik? The Guardian of jahannam. So Jan Nam has an angel in charge of Johanna is called Malik and he's mentioned in the Quran when I Oh, yeah, Malik the people of Jannah. Every day they will cry. Oh Malik. Malik. What do you want Monaco, Austin, they will tell the people who join them will say oh Malik, ask Allah to destroy us just destroy Yes. We don't want to go to Jenna, just in this punishment. And Malik will say, in the market, oh, no, you're gonna stay here forever, molar protectors. So this is Malik. Malik is in charge of jahannam. And he left jahannam to come and meet Nevis also alum at the seventh summer. And when he makes the
results Allah Malik Malik gave Sampson a visa Salam and gvl South NaVi so Salah, that is Malik the warden the guard the angel in charge of jahannam give him salaams whenever Islam gave salam to Malik nahi Salam ctgb like what's wrong with this guy? He's not smiling at me that when ever I mean in a visa Salah make the angels along the way all the angels when they meet him, they say ceram Welcome, welcome. We were looking forward to meet you. Oh, Mohammed Al Salam. When he made the NBN Avi Nabi Adam, Isa Musa Ibrahim, they were all happy to see him. But Malik is like, Sarah. All right. So now we shall see what's wrong with Malik.
She video said, you know, Malik, Allah created him like this, that he cannot spell. He doesn't have the ability to feel happiness, kindness and smiling. That's who Malik is. But if he could smile, he would smile for you. But Malik can smile. So let us never meet this angel Malik me.
The resource Salam also saw gibreel in his true form. So this whole journey gibreel was in the form of a man
as the reason went up from simanim 1234567 chiminea was in the form of a man. Now you will feel transformed to ease through structure, how He really looks as an angel, and he saw some only saw the video in his to form twice. The first day he received revelation when Ico was revealed. And this day on the salami, Raj, so Allah says,
In the illawarra, you had the score and His revelation, Allah Lucia de la quwata. Mira was in first hour, the person who is teaching in Ibiza Salaam is Shadi Chua, extremely strong, intensely powerful, mighty, do milliwatt in FASTA he is in perfect form. And he became a nice Angel form as Allah mentions at seductive survey
Right. So as they go up, and I want you to imagine this again, we're going up and up and up. You get to the seventh summer, you meet LeBron James. I mean,
you keep going up what's at the highest level of summer number seven.
The Mount Everest of salmon. Number seven. What is right on top three is a three, a three cold sea throttle monta the three have the utmost limit. Nothing goes beyond the three. It's called winter because it's the end of the line, that nothing can go beyond that three, above vektory. There is nothing in that. And as they went up at the tree, gibreel turned into an angel. And he told them he saw Salaam No one is allowed to go beyond CW into this three is the end. When you reach the three, that's where it stops. But you are the first creation to be given permission to go even above the three a what is above citrato moonta. Remember, we continue our journey. What is above sidhartha
moonta. Amongst the things that above a citizen monta and we won't go into much depth here.
Keep on keep going.
Above Seattle monta. You have Jenna and Jana. The close to or close to Seattle monta is Jen and Jana or Jenna at least Allah sees general law in the US government agenda is close to security.
And we won't go usually we go into discussing janome agenda, but because of time, we won't talk about that. What's inside Jana? What's inside? Johanna? We keep going up.
Right, this this is about Jana.
Just one point of janam.
Keep going until the last slide of Jana, that this point that the people on the next slide, the people of janam what will they do?
Whenever someone tells us in a Hadith of the people of Jana, we're not in the and they have nothing to look forward to now hope all they will do all day all night is cry and cry and cry mama protect us. And eventually they'll cry so much they tears run up and they'll begin to cry blood. They'll cry the blood out. And they will continue to cry and cry and cry until those tears and that blood is like an ocean that ships could float on the grid and removes 21 days now between you and protecting yourself from this place.
as tight as you feel but to make that effort to fast to avoid sin to make for a week with the Imam protects you from this place. MMA is a place called Jan now let's move on. We're not going to go into too much depth. But we all know of Jenna all the beauties and we'll talk about the greatest blessing of Jenna. But if we keep keep on the journey, there'll be salsa on this journey. He passed Jana and Jana and he saw Jenna and he saw Johanna but he kept going further and further up. Now what is above sideral moonta
What is a popsicle? What happened? We got to your What do you think some things we haven't reached yet?
The courtesy and the harsh like I could see was yakusoku somewhat above the cedar to monta we no one has gone except the prophets of Salaam is the courtesy of Allah. What's the courtesy? What's courtesy?
Okay, let me explain to you. The King kings have a throne. Yes, they've achieved where do they put their feet on the kings, like a little Ottoman, like a little pillow a little ornament a lot. So the chase to set our doesn't sit on a chair and all of a sudden relax his feet. But because he's a king, he has a throne. And I place the place where the Kings put the feet This is called a courtesy. So Allah has a Quincy and are not that he needs them.
The courtesy is above Caesar, tsunamis also in pause, and he went past the courtesy. And he said the courtesy. He heard the pin column The first thing I'll look at hated writing. That's where the pin writes the decrees. And that pin is busy writing very much now Why? Because the Night of Decree is coming in the next few weeks or maybe even tonight or tomorrow. Our decrees your decrees your life your death your is it. Your general Jana is being written by that pin. And if you make the art and I'm like sips Allah can change the decrease for you. Especially right now writing. So above the syrup
is the curacy. And above the courtesy is what's above the curacy. So what's above the curacy is an ocean.
An ocean of water. Allah says and it is he who created the heavens and the earth in six days and his throne was upon water. So between the two
To see and the outer shell of the throne of Allah is an ocean of water. And then we have above that the outer shell, which is the biggest creation of Allah, the outer shell of Allah Subhana, WA Tada, the unch. And the size of this summer to the next is adding in the desert, and the sub size of all the summer works compared to the codici is like a ring in the desert and compared the courtesy to the arch is like that ring in the desert so you can begin to you lost track of how big this thing is. Now we know and this is where we're going to conclude in sha Allah that we know that the prophecies are went on the Sauron the Mirage to do what was the main thing he received?
You know, when you go through this journey, does it feel like the journey smaller long?
Long, right? And you feel like for me to get to Allah, if I have to go all the way.
I will never get to Allah. Yes. So Allah gave you as a shortcut, a direct line, you don't have to travel all the way up through the summer, you just say Allahu Akbar, and you are straight on top, directly speaking to Allah. That's the point of the marriage. To see this journey shows you how powerful is your solar, that when you raise your hands, Allah gave you a mirage, a shortcut to him, where you don't need to go through any angels or any pious people or someone to take the liquid to you. You can speak directly like Allah gave in a manner which be footsies majesty, Allah is not like anything else. But Allah gave you a direct line to contact him. And that is your solar. You don't
need to travel. In fact, when you're making solar, this is the journey your your solar is taking every time this is the journey your solar is taking. And the very, very last point I want to make
the greatest pleasure of Jenna, the closest you could be to Allah and when you make salats and I can throw away and you'll make book and you break through if you're fasting and he thought and you make draft for me and for surfers, and all of us inshallah, one thing that will make the other will all achieve is this thing. So we want Jenna Yes. And we say Jen is just underneath the algebra the courtesy of Allah. And Jenna has levels. Jenna has many, many levels. One Jenna, and the man who gets the smallest gender will get 10 times the size of this humans on the earth. The worst person of gender, his gender, his garden will be 10 times the size of the humans on the earth.
What about the guy right on top of the measles alarm is gonna get the highest Jenna, what's the highest Jenna? What's it called? Fear dose, right? fear those. A loss is a hadith where the Prophet Allah says, Allah created for things with his hands in a way which if it's almost majesty, everything else almost it could be and it was created but for things Allah personally created. Now he added
the pin, the arch and genital feitos the Hadith even says Allah planted the trees himself in gentle fingers. Can you imagine agenda that Allah Himself decorated?
Now we might feel maybe we won't get the we make do off with the promises he made to offer gentle dose. But even if you don't get to live in fear those you know it's amazing. And this is the point I love so much that each and every one of us will get to visit weirdos, this gender. Now you know kiama will be on one day for a price. What a schema. Raise your hands. We give the sisters a chance. This is the back at the back what the schema is 50
Km is on a Friday. That's correct. Afterwards the people will get surprises please come to me. After kiama is on a Friday and inshallah after that difficult day. We will all go to Jenna amin will party like there's no tomorrow on Sunday and Saturday night. The biggest party we're going to have is on that Saturday. But Jenna has time. China has days and weeks and months. Gemma isn't just one long day. And as we're partying Saturday and Sunday and exploring Jenna the angels will tell us guys, Friday has come again and what happens on a Friday tomorrow and we have Julia in Gemini so what Juma boarding was like up to June was is none of this Juma you were like
everyone in Jana will put on the base clothing and they will leave their homes and they will all will all go to Jenna to fill those is Jenna and will come to this place a valley we will sit like you're sitting now. I mean
maybe close your eyes as soon as you close your eyes. So now you are with your friends your family in your most beautiful clothes. You in the highest place in Ghana and in the agency sit here on the floor and the floor is made of masks something beautiful smelling nice. And you see these these towers have made of light images made of light where the ambience of standing is the rebuttal he needs to be more muscle solemn and we getting ready for a Juma and we think who's going to
Keep the Joomla is the resource I'm going to give the hookah is gibreel gonna give the Hoopa know, Allah Himself will be seen to the people of Jenna every Friday. And He will say to me and you, how have you found my agenda?
you like what you see in Jenna and will say Subhana Allah, Allah. We can't explain to you how amazing Jenna is. And Allah will say to me and you, do you want to ask me so I can give you more things I want to give you and you'll see how all our needs are taken care of. There's nothing more I could want. Allah will say, well, these things you don't even know I've created. What about this and will show you new kinds of creations? Don't you want? This is a new kind of fruit. There's a new kind of headline, there's a new kind of whatever it might be. So you see Allah, Allah says that anyone that wants more any complaints, anyone's general it's not liking or nothing that I could
want. Then Allah will say, Now I want to give you something even bigger than Jenna more than Jenna. What can be more than Jenna? What can be better than Jenna? And what is better Alice's I'm going to give you something that no one ever before experienced. And then allow, will it move between us and him he's available, and we will get to see a lot directly.
And when we see a lot directly, we will be the I mean, we will forget all the joys of Jenna and that will be the greatest blessing that you will receive. The greatest thing that you could receive is to see Allah directly. And that's why we fast. That's why we make solar. That's why I make the Hadoop. What's why we do that are we all of us? Yeah, Allah let the time go quick. So we can get to that Juma? Very, very quickly, we can see Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what he showed was a little bit longer than maybe 15 minutes. But I hope in general, you've learned and benefited and understand the majesty of Allah, and also how close Allah really is in terms of our salah and provided. And if we
love to be with ally in the dunya we will love to be with him in the afra when Allah says when my servant asked you about me for inequality, I'm close to loss in the Mohammed Islam. I mean, just one one last point. I want each your email so we can give you the recording. I want you to take your phones out.

This is part of the
