I was relying on James Monroe him and him later Bill Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayidina Muhammad valioso also hurts my anus so don't worry about it. Gatto.
I was able to doing
how was How was your week?
Smile How was your week
I talk posting low cheating.
Okay load shedding a taco stains
hamdulillah it is the 27th of Raja and we ask Allah to
Shaban, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us to achieve Ramadan, Amin and that
that you know this is a very special Mirage is always a special kind of occasion for me. I think the first lecture I gave it Burano, I don't know. 12, maybe years ago was mirage. So and it's difficult. I mean, have a look at what more can we talk about Toronto, we've spoken about the events, which was what Salah we spoke about so many things. But I think the one that is perhaps my favorite, I don't know what your favorite is to actually go through the journey from the Navi Salam, as he traveled through the heavens, and to look at and remind ourselves the vastness of the universe, and the vastness of the creation. And they can only begin to, we're not even imagined but to understand
comprehend the power of the Creator, to understand Allah subhanaw taala in His Majesty, when we look at the universe compared to us, Subhan Allah,
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in Nephi Holic is similar to an earth that visually in the creation of the heavens and the earth was delightful lately when the hot and the alteration of the night and the de la yachting little above it is a sign for the people of understanding those who get into the corona
AlLadhina kurunegala those who remember Alok, Iam and who are polluted or alleged who became those who remember Allah standing and sitting and lying down wherever karuna, funky somehow it will all and you ponder deeply Allah wants you to think about the universe. Allah wants you to when you go as Allah says, Even when you laying down at night and you think, what's out there? How big is this universe? Allah wants you to think about this, you should then say and Inshallah, at the end of this lecture, the thing Allah wants you to say is Ramadan, I will load mashallah had adulti law, all of this did not come by chance and by luck, without a creator and a designer, all of this must have a
reason and a purpose and a design, super Hanukkah, Filipina, other Banagher so All Praise be to Allah, protect us from the fire of Jana, in this series and in the Mirage than a visa Salam would explore and get to see of the greatest Allah says when 18 Cobra, he would see of the greatest of Allah's creation, he would see and travel through all of existence to the very age where no other creature had gone before and kept going. And on the way he saw so many amazing things which we'll talk about tonight. Insha Allah even got to see inside of Jana, and inside of Jana, and perhaps we won't have time for that, but inshallah we will talk about that when we get there. So let us start
if we were to go on the journey, and not that we want to be but maybe it's good if we can dim the lights for this one. Can we
This is the most visually important lecture the others Alhamdulillah those are not as intriguing. It is Friday night after all.
Okay, so if we were to start
this journey, we know that IV Salam took two journeys, the Israel and the Mirage by now we own this. The Seraph is the night journey, and Israel is a journey by night and then IV Salam took the Surat from Makkah to Majid Luxa. We know that the NABI Salam says, One night he was woken up by Gibreel and Gibreel took him to the haram to the Kaaba, and they made Salah together and then they saw this levees we saw this creature a little bit bigger than a donkey a little bit smaller than a whole school the Brock he didn't I didn't have wings. The Barack doesn't have wings. I know in mythology, even in the speeches, sometimes you see Barack has wings, he doesn't have wings. He's just a very,
very fast creature. And so then we Salam and Gibreel climb on the Buraq and he ran all the way to Palestine, Jerusalem, we're gonna be Salam performed, and he led the Salah with all the Gambia, one soft as far as the eye could see. All the NBS stood behind him and the symbolism here is that you are hurting Umbria you are the seal and the final and the leader said when Adam and something amazing is going to happen
Last night, we did a lecture, Islam from scratch, it's online and we said it's important to understand how amazing the surrounding Mirage is to look at what happened just before the NABI Salam comes comes through the worst time of his life. He mentioned this year that I'm using the your sadness is the lowest rock bottom place in his life and in his hardship, he turns to Allah. And so Allah gives him this great gift. So anyone going through difficulty, in your difficulty in your sorrow in your sickness in your poverty, it is a tool, it's a step that you can get closer to Allah that you could not get. And so because of that Allah gave him this great honor. First honor. Allah
takes him to Palestine, Majid Luxa then Allah shows him that you are the Imam of all the Gambia he made Salah when he looked all the unbeatable behind him, and he was the Imam, they came in spirit for all the bodies they were he and Allah Allah, this is the way Allah beyond our understanding. That is the surah. Now Gibreel system isn't and now we're going to take a journey, which is called the Miraj the Mirage. In fact, the word Mirage is literally it's called a lift and elevator. An elevator is called a mirage. In the Quran, Quran surah aardige min Allah even marriage Allah says to Allah belongs the marriage, the Mirage is the lifts. So through the heavens, they are shortcuts
tunnels, which only like high speed highways that goes through the heavens. And Allah says He controls these things, no one can get on it. And so Allah had brought a mirage of some way to the enemy Salam, and Jibreel. And then we Salam got on this Mirage, and they started to ascend, this will go higher and higher and higher. So tonight inshallah we take this journey, if we were to be Allah brought us a mirage, I lift and we'll take it up, what would we see along the way? So let's start with where you're at machine one hamdulillah and we'd see outside that Hamlet almenara the first minute in South Africa, and mashallah, it's a nice big Minato but then we start going higher
and higher. And we look at the biggest building in the world. I did this lecture, I think in 2015. Still, the biggest building in the world is the Bowditch Khalifa, the tallest building in the world is in Dubai. It's called the Burj Khalifa, how tall is it? It's about the height of Table Mountain. So for those who wouldn't haven't been there, it's about as tall as Table Mountain 800 meters. But that's nothing compared to the tallest mountain in the world today is the British Khalifa towering above the rest. Compare that to Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, which is what's the tallest mountain in the world?
To what is found in the world, Mount Everest, it's wrong. There's actually a taller mountain in the ocean in the sea. But this one is on land. The tallest mountain on land is Mount Everest. So compare Mount Everest.
Yeah, that's in the union. Yeah, compare Mount Everest to the Burj Khalifa. Mount Everest is about 10 kilometres 10 kilometres. That's how high so if you were to add 10 Burj Khalifa is one on top of the other 10 Table Mountains, then you get to Mount Everest. But that's also not the highest point, if you stand on Mount Everest, you might think I'm very close to the end of the sky. But that's still very low down. On the next slide, you will see how high the sky goes. Mount Everest is about the height that planes fly. So if any of you have been on an international flight, that's how high a plane is on how high Mount Everest is. That's how high planes go. But there's so many more
kilometres up before you reach the end of our planet, our planet has so many layers of sky.
If Mount Everest is 10 kilometres up, you need to go another 100 kilometres before you become an astronaut. Another 100 kilometres up and up and up before you become an astronaut, and you begin to leave our planet. So for all of you, you know, we live on a planet called Earth
to rock with space around it with a rounded, a nice bubble that Allah created. And this is earth. And if you and Allah Allah, if any of us will have the opportunity, if you ever got the chance to fly all the way outside of the earth, and you were able to stand outside of the earth and you look back, this is what you would see a ball with continents and water, and 8 billion people living across it. Most of it. If you look, for example, at Africa at night, no, not because there's Eskom, but if you had at night, you'd see how little light there is. Look how little light there is. In Africa, for example, only the spots where these lights are where people live, the rest of it is
basically empty. Most of this planet is empty, and are the land, let alone the 75% which is ocean and water. And so this is our planet Earth. What a wonderful place. All 8 billion people have us the wars we fight the money that we argue about all the sadness, happiness is in this little tiny spot, everything And Alhamdulillah we realize that as we begin to look outside, we're not alone in the universe, our planet, our home the Earth.
He's surrounded by other objects, other planets. And so we are in a little
apartment, a little network a little building off of our fellow planets. And we call this thing the solar system. I'll teach you a bit of astronomy. So this little area that we live in, is called the solar system.
Have any of you this is first time you hear about a solar system, you know, that thing that you see outside in the day, that bright thing that's called the sun. Okay, that's the sun.
Right? The sun is a star.
And when you look outside at night, you'll see so many stars in the sky, each one of them is like the sun. And the way the universe is structured the way Allah created the universe, is that you have stars, massive big stars, and around it, you have tiny little planets, which rotate revolve around the sun, almost they make a tawaf around the sun. Allahu Allah is the symbolic of the tawaf that the angels make it on the ashram Allah is a symbolic about our tawaf around the Kaaba, everything revolves around a creator center. And so if you compete on our planet, to our neighboring planets, our neighbors and our star, you will see that we are quite small. So if you in our neighborhood,
Earth has much bigger neighbors, we are the tiny building. So if we are in a street, imagine this was like a crescent, solar system crescent, and you look at the different houses, Earth is my small house, compared to the other mansions on the road. Jupiter is the biggest planet, Neptune satin.
Earth is smaller than your anus. Yes, I have to say that right. And the sun, of course, the sun is the biggest object in the solar system, the sun, the star is the biggest object in the solar system.
And this Subhanallah something for you to also imagine the sun that gives you light, the sun that gives us warmth, it gives out energy, and that energy is captured by the plants around us. Those plants make fruit, vegetables, or animals eat it.
Then you eat the fruit or the animals and your body breaks that food down back into energy. That energy which came from the star every time you eat something, you're eating a piece of the Sun Subhanallah This is how Allah had given and freed us from this massive star this ball of fire. Every time you eat something, you drink something, it is actually that star, that energy that you're eating, you're consuming. So how big is the earth what size now? How big is the earth compared to our neighbors compared to the sun?
The biggest planet in our solar system is Jupiter and you can fit 100 Earths inside Jupiter.
But Jupiter is very small compared to our star, the Sun. I know in the in the day, it looks like a little bowl. But if you were to come close to it, it is 1 million times the size of the Earth. Imagine you could put you could if if the sun was a bucket, you could pull 1 million Earths 1 million of you 1 million
South Africa's 1 million of your wives Hannah all in that bucket. And that is the sun. So the sun is pretty big. You agree with me? The sun is big. And if you as I mentioned, when you look out at night at the stars in the sky, if you were to inshallah go to a place where there wasn't any lights, maybe a night when there's low cheating, and you look up in the sky, and you see all the stars in the sky, those little twinkle twinkle dots, they are all like the sun, millions and millions of Earths can fit into each one of those little dots. So now, if you were given a spaceship, and you now stood outside the earth, and you looked at the sun, you would wonder, well, what is beyond the sun? What
else is out there? What are the stars around us? And our closest star, our closest neighbor is called Alpha Centauri. That's the closest star to the Sun.
And I want you to imagine stars are like little houses in a city.
So our son if our son was an apartment block, the building next door is called Alpha cintura.
How long would it take you to go from year to our neighbor just next door? How long does it take for us to go from the sun? to Alpha Centauri. The two stores are right next to one another sitting next to each other. How long does it take? Well, the fastest thing that we know the fastest thing in the universe is light. Light. That's why I say the speed of light. Light travels faster than anything else. Nothing goes faster than light and how fast is light go. Light travels at 300,000 kilometres in one second. One second 300,000 kilometres.
Let's put into perspective. How fast is that?
Let's say more or less plus minus it takes it's 1000 kilometres between Cape Town and Joburg plus minus. So light. In one second, it goes to Joburg and back
150 300,000 150,000 times
in one second only 50,000 times it's jumping back and forth.
In one second, light goes around the Earth eight times the whole earth in eight times in one second. That's how fast light is. So if you were in a spaceship that traveled at the speed of light, and you wanted to go from the sun,
to Alpha Centauri, how long would it take you how it's just your neighbor, how long would it take, it will stick, it will still take you five years,
five years to go from year, just next door at the fastest speed in the universe. So you begin to understand when we call it space, there's a lot of space. That's why they call it space. There's a lot of space, and how big the distances are.
So Alpha Centauri and thy is SubhanAllah. That big number down there. Nine point basically 9.5 trillion kilometres, is the distance that light travels in one year, you must multiply that by five to go from Earth from the Sun, to Alpha Centauri SubhanAllah. That's the gap between us and they. Now, when you say hold on, but if I look out in the sky, I see one star, Alpha Centauri. And then I see another star and another star. How many of these stars are out there? If I wanted to visit all of them, how many stars out there? And what how big do the stars get is the sun? We know it takes a million Earths to fit in the sun. How many other stars and how big are they? When I did this
presentation a few years ago, the biggest star that we discovered
the biggest star that we discovered was called VY Canis Majoris. We go to the next slide.
The sun compete to this star. The sun, a million Earths compete to VY Canis Majoris. Look at the sun, it's one dot compete to this massive star.
And that's no longer the king. There were two stars even bigger than that that has been discovered in the last two years.
You're going to the next slide. So if these stars as I said, if the stars were buildings, and each of them, each of the each of the buildings were side by side.
The City of Stars is called a galaxy. All the stars they live together in a city they call the galaxy. The sun is one star next to it is Alpha Centauri next to it is VY Canis Majoris, the biggest star that we've discovered Stevenson to one eight next to each other. And in our city.
I know your mind stops working a long time some of you have stopped working long time ago.
And remember that feeling like I can't keep track of the numbers we're going to get to an is robotic that you all know when Allah says
Fung collembola bustling young Colombian porcelain, young collembola Cassava seed, Allah Subhan Allah says
submarginal Passalacqua rotini, young collibra, illegal versatile hacia Anwar said, Allah says when you look at the sky, Allah says, look and look and look and keep looking. Eventually, you will stop looking. Look at the sky, fatigued, tired, exhausted, your mind cannot work anymore. The universe is too big for your brain to understand all of this, however, describes as you get lost in the numbers, it becomes too big to understand. That's how Allah describes the universe. So getting back to our stars,
the universe is made up of stars. And the stars live together in a little fat in a little city called the galaxy.
So what Galaxy do we live in?
The Milky Way so if you wrote a letter to a friend in another galaxy, you say, This is me. Ahmed, from Blue cup Western Cape, South Africa, Africa, Earth solar system, galaxy Milky Way. You write your friend in other galaxy, right? So our galaxy is the Milky Way. How many stars how many suns are in this galaxy?
How many stars 300 billion, with a B 300 billion suns 300 billion stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way.
300 billion of the sun
that can fit 1 million Earths in it in our galaxy. How big is this galaxy? So if you were again in your spaceship if you were in your spaceship
Remember I said it will take you how long to go from the Sun to the neighboring star? Five years. Now you said okay, fine. I live on the one side of the galaxy, my granny lives on the other side of the galaxy, how long will it take with my spaceship to get the from one side of the city to the other side of the city, it will take you 100,000 years at the speed of light 100,000 years, it takes a light to go from one side of the galaxy to the other side of the galaxy.
Then we keep looking further and we realize hold on our galaxy. Our town is just one of many, many other galaxies out there. In fact,
if we were living in a city if the Milky Way was a city was a town with a door up
the door next door is called Andromeda. It's even bigger than us.
We have 300 billion stars, Andromeda has 1 trillion stars 1000 billion stars, we are tiny compared to our neighbor. And to get the to get from our galaxy to the galaxy next door to go from the Milky Way to Andromeda, it will take you two and a half million years at the speed of light.
So you know Subhanallah
if we didn't have light pollution, you could see Andromeda with your naked eye. You could see Andromeda in the sky. And what that means is when you're looking at it, you're looking at light that traveled two and a half million years to get to it. What you're seeing is the past two and a half million years ago, traveling to get to you. So now
again, to recap, you have the earth, masha Allah, the earth can fit how many earths in the sun? 1 million
how many suns? Are they in the galaxy? The Milky Way galaxy 300 billion. And then you have next to the Milky Way galaxy Andromeda with 1 trillion suns who stars What's your next question?
How many galaxies are they?
How many of these galaxies how many of these cities of stars are out there? And what is the biggest one of all?
Well, the biggest one that we have discovered an everyday we discover more is called ICD
1011 ICD 1011 That's the name of the galaxy you know you know when when you stop becoming when the when the scientists don't have any more fancy names and you know Milky Way Andromeda they found so many they stopped becoming exciting. Just call it give it a number because they last names to give these things
This galaxy is 100 times bigger than Andromeda. It had to get the from from us to get to ICD 1011 350 million years 350 million is speed of light to get there.
So compare the size and the next slide. You can compare the size
the Milky Way galaxy is that dark over the with the sun the moon 100 300 billion stars in it compare the Milky Way to I see 1011
Our galaxy and that galaxy you see the the Milky Way, all the stars in the sky that you see is just in the Milky Way, is just a piece of the Milky Way. If you counted all the stars in the sky at night, it's only a small 10% of the whole Milky Way galaxy. And that galaxy is tiny is a baby compared to ice 1011 So now you begin to wonder how big is this universe? How many galaxies how many stars? So inshallah let's play a video or before the video before the video. This mashallah is mind blowing. This should be like your background on your phone or something.
we took the the most advanced telescope is outside of the earth
used to be the Hubble telescope. And now it's called Pamela Who do you mind reminds me what's the new telescope called?
James Webb, the James Webb telescope, right the James Webb telescope. It's the most advanced telescope. It's not on Earth. It's floating in space taking pictures. And so
when the Hubble telescope took one of its first pictures, this is one of the first pictures Hubble telescope, it looked out into an empty part of space, an empty distant part. It took a picture. And when he came back, the scientists saw all these dots. And they thought these are stars when they look deeper. That's not stars. Those are galaxies of stars. Every one of those dots as billions, trillions of stars inside it, every one of those dots as billions of suns inside of it. Were the planets inside of them. Subhanallah and that's just one patch of sky. One centimeter
One centimeter. Now you take a patch next to it, more galaxies and more galaxies. So how big is this universe for Han Allah? How big is this creation of Allah subhanaw taala let's play a video.
So this thing This video will show size scale we start from
these are little moons and rocks out there in space. Pluto used to be a planet or a planet anymore. Europa is a moon of Saturn I think
Jupiter is the moon we all know the moon
Mercury is a planet
Titan is a moon of Saturn
Mars is bigger than us, not us bigger than us. Our size Venus
I mean we get to the earth because that's where you live
Kepler is a planet outside of our solar system. Then we get Neptune
and your planet Uranus
Saturn with those rings
and then Jupiter
the biggest planet in the solar system. And now we complete compete planets two stars.
That's what Jupiter is compared to the sun. Look how small we are. But the Sun is a baby compared to other planets Sirius A Allah mentions in the Quran Shuara.
The Pollak star
and the stars keep getting bigger and bigger.
VY Canis Majoris that was the guy that we spoke about is the biggest style in that UY Scuti and even bigger Stephenson to one eight.
And if we keep going out further out
that's a black hole. Yes.
That's a supermassive black hole.
And that's the biggest black hole 1618.
But those things are all small
compared to galaxies.
Nebula is a guess, a cloud
you see the horse looks and goes.
So this is a baby galaxy, all those dots or stars.
And that's our galaxy, the Milky Way galaxy.
Andromeda, our neighbor. But if you compare those galaxies,
to ice level one,
you keep going.
These are now clusters of galaxies.
And those galaxies form
another structure. And if you keep going,
eventually to the edge of the universe this as far as we know.
By that we can stop over there.
So this is as far as we have discovered, and the more and the big the big our telescopes. And the more the more advanced our technology is, the more we see deeper and deeper and it gets bigger and bigger and bigger.
To make you understand how big the universe is, when you think about this,
all the sand on Earth, the grains of sand on Earth. They are more
Stars in space like the sun than there are grains of sand on Earth.
Subhanallah and those stars as we see these a million times bigger than the Sun within the earth, filled with so many things of energy and power. Now it's very, very scary. That's scary, but it's amazing.
Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
that the Sama Benina be Aden
and we are expanding it the Sama are in Allah hula Musa rune, Allah says about the heavens, that we spread out the earth. And we made it flat made it round and fast to live in. But as for the heavens, we expanded it and we continuously making it bigger and bigger.
This is of course that this is the Arabic is incorrectly the ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that the universe is getting bigger. This is the idea that this verse as you know, you should know about the scientists won a Nobel Prize for discovering this, that the universe is getting bigger. And so Allah mentions in the Quran, that the universe that we see, if you were to look at it in Surah Barak Allah says, To merge el Basara karate and young caliber Electabuzz Rojas yo has said that if you were to look at the heavens, and you were to study it, and you use your telescope, eventually you would lose track of time, you lose track of everything you couldn't calculate any
more. The universe is too big for your brain to understand. And you will begin to look humble and fatigue, the words are beautiful, that you will become tired, exhausted, and you will become humbled at the bigness of the universe. Now, we shift from astronomy, to theology, to religion. All this is part of religion. But this is as far as science can tell you. Science can only tell you what we see. It can't tell you what is beyond what we can see. And why it's the Allah says what occurred azienda sama duniya be Masabi would you know how to do militia teen who I don't know mother say Allah says that I've placed stars in the summer of the dunya in the lowest summer in the smallest summer.
And yet how many summer water the Saba Osama walked into the eye. They are what we know of seven universes stacked one on the other. And we are in sama dunya the smallest summer, the Sahaba Austin at least for them. This summer, this universe that we know all the stars, all the planets, everything that we have is the summer of dunya. How big is our universe compared to the summer next door? So then abbyson says, the likeness of our realm our summer to the one next door is like a man who took a ring and he threw it in the desert. We our universe is the ring and the desert is the next summer. And you have seven of these one on top of the other. And so when the abyssal Salam
traveled on the east Rama Mirage, when he traveled on the Mirage, he was taken through the seven heavens.
You will take him through the seven heavens and he used as Allah says mean Allah who will manage the original melodica or Rohilla, Yeoman Khanna MC Daru hum Sina Alfa Sana, Allah says to Allah belongs the special elevators that go up and down the heavens, the angels and Jibreel they use these lifts. The angels on fly with the wings, they can't fly, it's too big. They need to take the shortcuts the superhighways and even then, it takes some Sina Alfa Sana just to go from one place to another, at least 50,000 years for Gibreel to travel from one side to the next you have the Navi salaam was taken on a very very superfast journey that no one else was able to take before him. And he
travelled through the Samoa and this is what from the mirage that we know the story of the Mirage where
the visa mentions him and Gibreel were traveling up through the earth higher and higher paths, all the planets, all the stars, all these amazing things that you saw. And eventually he got to the edge of the universe. There is a boundary there's a place where the universe stops. And when he got to that edge, there was a checkpoint and Immigration Customs.
And they were angels had asked Gibreel who's with you? And so gpdo said, this is Muhammad Sal Salam. And the angels asked you video. Does he have permission? Does he have a visa to come here? But you can use it? Yes, he does. And so the angels opened the door of the summer work Allah says that the summer what have doors you can't just cross over. So they open the door and they greeted the enemy Salam. And they said Helen welcome and we are honored. They said we are honored to meet you. What an amazing honor to have you here visiting us at this low this boundary between our world and the next summer than me submit our father the item. Now for the heavy item doesn't at least that's
I love the way he was placed there but Allah subhanho wa Taala and maybe item greeted maybe Mohamed Salah Salem. And he said welcome Oh Blissett, son, and Nabi. And they spoke. And then the veto Salam had to leave because his journey continues. So he first meeting every item at the lowest summer. Now that might be Adam, obviously, when he was placed there to meet him, and perhaps one of the reasons, the first Nabhi that you're going to meet is, of course, your father, maybe either
when he went to the second summer, and again, as he traveled through, we don't know what he saw in the second summer. But at the edge between our the that summer and the second summer at the castle, once again, you meet angels, and they said you have a question. And Julian said yes. And the doors were open, when the doors were opened, and me Solemate Nebby, Isa, and me Yeah. And they were cousins. And they spoke, and very interestingly, then a resource alum asked every Nabhi Do you have some advice? Some information from my alma, in Ibiza said something very interesting. He said, I don't know anything more than you know, except that I need to come back to the earth to fight the
The time of the gel is close, and I need to return to the earth. And we know that's a story for another time. The events of Kiana and then Abby salaam Lin lift and he goes to the next summer and he meets a very beautiful man. And that of course is never use of the beautiful handsome never use of in the third summer and he moves up to the fourth summer he meets an OBE that is and then the fourth summer gonna be how do I surround the brother of an abuser. In the sixth summer, it needs to be Musa alayhis salam the man has mentioned most of the Quran and he describes the Musa as being a very tall, thin, strong dock of complexion men very tall men. And Nabi Musa, as we know in the
Quran, his personality. He's very, very direct. It's not very diplomatic. He says what he feels and he says off the greeting that IV Salam welcome my fellow brother. And then he says, How is it that this young man, this young lad basically will have a bigger Ummah than mine? Up until this point, they'll be Musa bunny saraiya was the biggest and the most favorite people. And now he knows he realizes that the Omar Mohamed Salah Salem will be the biggest Ummah that will intergender and they'll be Musa makes this claim that my ummah will be eclipsed by Oma. And so then then Abby Salam goes further into summer number seven, the last summer the highest summer, and he needs none other
than NaVi Ibrahim Ali, Ibrahim and intermod. Number seven, we know that IV Salam saw a few things. He we don't know what he saw in 345. But in number seven, he gave us some descriptions of what he saw.
The first thing of course is he met he met Nabil Ibrahim Ibrahim again to his personality and each of the MBA are different. Now Abraham is a very laid back chilled, relaxed kind of person. And he meets the V Brahim So Ali salaam relaxing against a place called Baitul Mahmoud, a masjid. He's like reclining sleeping in this Masjid. What is waiting Mahmoud? Allah describes speaking Mahmoud in the Quran. That Beighton matter more.
It means the house that has a lot of visitors. What is this? This is the Haram of the angels. This is the mecca of the angels. The angels come and they make Salah Hajj O'Meara in this haram. They are billions and trillions of angels. And because there are so many of them, the angels can only attend one day in their life, God lives for millions of years. But he could only attend baiting Mahmoud once and you can never come again. And I always tease. They also have a soul Cree, they also have a list. And you can only go once you won't come again. And so the angels also have a limit. There's a quota system also for the angels. And so this baiting Mahmoud,
the angels Gibreel in them, they only have access one day, but yet we find Abby Ibrahim
relaxing as if though he's got all the time in the world. He has an unlimited visa to come and go to bathe in Malmo. Why? Because he built the Haram on Earth. So Allah rewards him that you may attend biting Mahmoud, as much as you want. And Elisa says this Masjid basically Mahmoud,
in a way, which we can't understand. But it is directly parallel or vertically aligned with the carbon on the earth, so much so that if the basic mamoun were to collapse, it will fall directly on top of the carbon. So every realm, every planet, every part of the universe, as a special place dedicated for the worship of Allah, all of this in creation
is not there for fun. It is there to worship and glorify Allah. And so the beta mode is the most sacred place in the seventh seventh heaven where the angels come to zero. There'll be so Salam also.
At this point, he made many angels and he met many Umbria and each time he met someone, those people were happy to see him. They hugged him, they kissed him. They shook his hand and there was a we're so honored to meet you. And when he meets a man
That doesn't smile at all shakes than a visa alum Jibreel synergy Gibreel system is that man over there or that personality over there is Malik go and shake his hand. So there'll be some goes towards Malik Malik Salam Alikum no emotion, no smiling. And so the Prophet Sam says to Gibreel what's up with this guy? Why is he like, so sour? I see like, like, you know, is upsetting me. And so that Gibreel says, this is Malik and who is Malik? In the Quran? Allah says, wanna know? Yeah, Malik. The people will call out Oh Malik lair to the Elena rabuka. ask Allah to end us. Malik. Oh, ask Allah to Indus Kala in Naka market. Listen, no, you will stay here forever. Who's Malik?
The Guardian of Jana. Malik is the warden of Jana. His job is to torture and punish Mala grantees namely to meet him. I mean, so Gibreel says this is Malik the keeper of Janam. And he's not able to smile. He doesn't have the ability to smile and to be polite and to be soft. Allah did not create him with any softness in his heart. But if he could, he would have definitely smile for you you would This eases happy face.
This eases happy face.
He then there'll be Salam meet Malik and also at this point, some if you need more detailed discussion of this random mirage. He got to see a little bit of what's inside of Jana some of the punishments and the people inside of Jahannam and he got to see what's inside of Jana. But that's for another time. So then a B Salam
T video so the journey doesn't stop here. We need to keep going. We can go higher and higher and higher. And so they kept going up pass Beatty l'amour through the seventh heaven now you get to a point as Allah Cydia seven Sam our what is beyond Samar number seven. What is beyond that, just before they got to the end of summer number seven
Jibreel transformed into His true body. Its true form. This entire journey to video was like a man, he looked like a man. He didn't have his true angelic form. And so when he got to a certain level, he got out of his human costume was designed and he went into his complete Angel form. And Allah says that he the Prophet Salam saw in the who, in who are Illawarra when you have that revelation that comes into the salon is a way Allama Lucia de Rico. It comes from an angel who was extremely powerful and mighty, do mirror what infra Stella and he is of perfect creation that he saw in the Siddhartha lamonta Then Absalom saw this angel at Sidra Kalamata. Okay, so what is this ayah talking
about? As they went up, they got to a point where there was a huge three,
the final three. So if you imagine the universe, it's like one brick block stacked on top of the other. And on the last brick right on top of these three, this three is called Secret in Malta, the Sidra winter harmony, the in you cannot go beyond that. So Gibreel goes into his angel form, and when they get to Sidra moonta
Gibreel basically says, this is as far as I can go. Allah says in the CW moonta in the hajj. And from our very close to Siddhartha monta is where Jana is the agenda that we all hope to go is close to pseudo Malta.
And our grant is to intergender to those I mean, and so at this three
we know on the one side close to it is Jana, but you can keep going further, but just something about Jana. There's a difference between the seven Summit and the Jana Jana is the word Jana means the garden. Jana is outside of all of the SubhanAllah. So in this creation of seven somehow what the creations the universe is multiverses outside of this, Jana is outside of these creations. And so just to understand how big Jana is, Allah says, Hadith says in Jannah, there is 100 levels that Allah is prepared just for the Mujahideen. Between each one is like the distance between the heavens and the earth. This entire journey is the gap between one Jana, one garden and another garden.
Whatever gets to Jana who loves the between one garden and the next is like all of this creation, putting it that's why you can understand. That's why in Jannah you will have all the time in the world, but you won't be able to explore all of Jana, even though you would live for eternity. It is bigger than time. And so then every Salam kept going. He passed the Sidra monta when the Sahaba asked What did you see it citizen when da as Allah mentions to the Quran is the actual Siddhartha Yaksha when the tree covered and changed, as it changed over didn't explain in detail. And the Prophet SAW says that there are butterflies and lights that come out of this tree and that the
Ah, beautiful changing of shapes and colors so much that I could not understand what I saw, my mind could not understand what I saw. But the story is at the end of all of creation, beyond that nothing has gone before. And so when the profs alum, got to the point of the tree, the highest point of the tree Gibreel seed on Amazon Salem, this is as far as I go, I do not have permission to go beyond this boundary, the tree is where I stop, but you are the first to have permission to go further. No creature has gone higher than cedar. And you have permission to go up. And so then Elisa Lam, he now ascended even higher. And as he passed over into the realm outside of the seven somehow what you
mentioned he heard
writing, he heard the writing, what is his writing? The column, the pain of destiny, the remember the first thing I'll look at it was the pain that keeps writing what everyone is going to get a risk, who's going to live who's going to die, he could hear the pain, above duration, writing all of what's going to happen in the future. And as he kept going up, he reached the boundary of the courtesy. What is the courtesy? The ITU courtesy Allahu La ilaha illa Lata who slid to what I know the whole mafia similar to Mandela the usher in the evening? Yeah, Alma Boehner ad human holophone ya know, Medina, Ed, he will help him was here, Chris, you somehow it was out of the way I will have
Omar who will allow him to see the courtesies. What, what's the courtship
not a chain on a throne it's a footstool, the footstool? The courtesy of us isn't it cool to see all of creation is underneath the courtesy. Everything of creation is beneath the footstool of Allah. Now, Allah does not sit on chairs. And he does not recline his feet on chairs. But like a king has a throne.
Just you know in the in the fairytales you got the king sitting on a throne, but he doesn't put his feet on the floor he puts like a little chair like with an ornament, that thing is a currency. So Allah says my currency,
everything of creation is underneath the currency. And so going to be Salam reaches the courtesy of not the absence of the throne, the courtesy or of creation, or the angels or the some allies or the stars or the heavens, is beneath way Allah would have put his feet if he needed a good see, but he doesn't need a could see. And so the Prophet Salam continued to go, even above the courtesy, what is above the courtesy?
What's higher than the courtesy?
Not yet dosh before we will get to the Throne of Allah. Allah says in Arabic Mala they have a customer to a lot of PCT am He Allah says I created all of creation in six days to muster or when I ascended the throne, with a bill from where from the throne on which all creation, I administer the face of, of the of the universe. Mervyn Shafi and Elam in by the evening nothing can come to Allah. None can speak to Allah none can approach Allah except for this permission. 30 km vertic Mala Robuchon taboo, and so this is Allah so you should worship Him alone. And he mentioned Well, what are the holla customer? What are the VISTA yam? What kind of Arusha who and Alma and he says, and my
throne is on water. So if you can understand now you've got the seven summer work like bricks stacked up on the other, the highest summer has this three equal to the remota. Above the three, you get the squillaci over it. Above the quotacy is an ocean of water and endless ocean of water. From this ocean All of life comes Allah says All of life comes from water from this ocean, upon which the Arusha Allah is standing, all of life in emanates from it. And then above this ocean of water is the Throne of Allah the ashram Allah. Allah subhanaw taala does not sit on the arch, but he is above the throne. He is above his creation. And the greatest of all angels on the FTM will bring the Throne of
Allah on the day of PMO and afflict a place where there is no mountains or anything else. And that's why we know the very famous Hadith, it will be the shade of the ocean, that will be the only thing which we would stand under. And so there'll be Salam ascended and went above the arseven. And for the first time in the history of all of creation, Allah subhanho wa taala.
And one of his creatures was able to come as close as possible to him and between Allah and then to be Salam was a curtain of light, where there'll be somebody turned the Sahaba asked me Salam.
Did you see your Lord? Did you see Allah said I could not see him, his hijab between me and Allah was a barrier of light. But Allah spoke to him. And we don't know what exactly everything Allah slopes and that is private. But the thing that was important for us was
we all know Salah Allah instructed me so let me tell you people that they need to worship Me 50 times 50 Salas a day, we all know the story, and then we sold them to CDCR Allah 50 times no problem. And so then he came back down past the ash pass the ocean pass the Buddha see posted winter imagery barrel again and they went down pathway tomorrow more possible Ebrahim, meet Nabi Musa Musa Stopstopstop Kenya. What did you and Allah speak about?
What did you speak about to Allah? The Gambia, don't ask this question. And we know that at least consider I spoke to Allah and He commanded me to make Salah 50 times a day. So whenever you mooses No way, your people not going to do 50 times. My people. I know I've expressed me Been there, done that. Go back to Allah and tell him it's too much Subhan Allah, and this is because Nabi Musa had a very personal relationship with Allah, he would speak and Allah would respond to him. And so then to be Salam looks at you buddy, like, Can I do that? Can I go back to Allah and ask him to be the Sidious and he agrees to be Musa right, I think you need to go back 50 is too much to people. So
these guys can do it. And so then we send them goes back up, and he goes every time we know up and down five times less less less. Until eventually it's from 50 to five and then they'll be Bucha sources five is too much men is Fajr is kind of gonna wake up overture shy is late, Costco love this, make it less and then they'll be some sit down to now I'm too shy to ask Allah for this five is I'm okay with five. And Allah Vincent Did you bit said they then the three of them heard a voice and this is the voice of Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala said, this is now the agreement between you of now you're happy Oh, Mohamed salah, This is between me and your Alma, that you will have five
daily Salawat but then you would have 50 will remain.
Each one will be multiplied. Now the reward is 50. But the deed is only five. And so we're going to be some number returned with a gift of Salah. And eventually we know that he said it was if though he saved now, the whole purpose of the Islam there's so many things we can take from it to one than the magnificence of the creation and the majesty of the creator and the gift and the honor of loving salam to really show who he is who the prophecy is a man we don't worship that. But surely he is a creation, unlike any other creation, the face of Allah's creations. But to us, we are also part of the story, we got the gift of Salah now, all of you, all of us, myself included, when I ask if you
were given the chance to go on this journey, would you take it for free tickets, maybe like you'd say, a world a world ticket the world tour tickets if they get us some our tickets, you say yes. You don't need to get an ISA on the Mirage to get the Allahu Akbar and you directly in the Presence of Allah. What the Salah is, is Allah has given each and every one of us a direct line to Allah, the majesty the Lord of all of creation, we can just raise our hands in Salah, and we can speak to him, we can tell him about our problems, our sadness, our desires, what we want what we need, the one who controls and creates all of this universe under him. You can every single person no matter how young
or old we you are, where you are in the world, you just raise your hands in technique, and you are in the presence of Allah subhana wa Tada. That is a gift that we don't know if any other creature or any other race or any other people have been given besides humanity. And so as we always say, you're in Cape Town, it's really true. Salah is what is the straw of the believer is the mirage of a surah of the believer. That is you and my journey to Allah five times a day. And so Allah says, well either so I like everybody and need for iniquity. But if you want to know where I am, I'm very close to all of you. I'm not far away in some distant high above the summer what I'm very close with G
Buddha were to die that Dan, and I answer you when you call out to me for Lester G Bulli so on semi Well, you know, be alone we are children. And so make dua to me and said You may be successful, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the understanding. We ask that one day, and I end up with this, every one of us will take this journey when when you die when you die, the angel of death will pull our souls and the angels will take our souls up the summit. If we are good people, the doors of the heavens will be opened up Malaga and all of us to ascend to the highest level. And if we're not so good, it will be said no one in the summer wants to see this person, send them back to the earth. It
may be that we be of those that when our souls are pooled, Allah and the angels and all of creation is excited to meet us there. Allah grant that for us, I mean in grantors genital photos. I mean, well, so let's say that Muhammad Ali Osaka, salaam, Sunni, I'm Laravel Alameen. In the announcements, no.
Oh, yeah, we've got some time before we shy any q&a.
My name is Shai for question. Sisters. Any questions?
Excellent, very good question. So then a B, so lamb was around 5051 years old. It was
about 10 years after he had been became an OB at 40. But 10 years later, he was very, very sad. And then Allah took him on this amazing journey. He was 51 years old, 42 years old, when Allah taken the Salam on this amazing journey.
Good question. Anyone else?
No questions understood?
Ah, that's an excellent question.
So someone might ask all these planets, all these places are the aliens who thinks they are Indians? Yes or no? You think they are aliens?
Yes, so, in the Quran, Allah mentions that Allah created seven heavens, and the DA and the creatures that he scattered throughout, throughout him.
Already in This is Rhonda Mirage, there was an alien. Technically, Djibouti was an alien. The Buraq is an alien. These are things that exist outside of our world. But the beautiful thing in the Quran, Allah says, throughout the heavens, ye scattered, a lot of living creatures. And all of this, what is the purpose of it? Why did Allah create all of these things, just to worship him and grow closer to Him and to glorify Him. Allah says in the Quran, there is not a plant or a tree, or a grain of sand or a drop of water or an atom, except that it makes sense we have Allah, but we do not understand the form of this. And all of Cree, all of the creation, the sun, the moon, the stars,
they worship Allah completely and perfectly in Surah Rahman, Allah says, When Niger Moon was Shegerian, Sudan, the stars and the trees makes jute. That's amazing. That's fantastic. But what's more amazing, is it you and me those creatures don't have a choice, the sun, the moon, the stars Gibreel they worship Allah because they have to, because they are coded that's in their DNA, they can disobey. But as we choose to worship Allah, we choose to make Salah you could be anywhere else in the world, but you chose to be in the masjid. Allah call you higher Allah salah, and you responded, I am here to appear. I'm coming here Allah, Lubbock, Allah, that is what makes this
creation. What makes you and me in sha Allah very special and the closest kita to Allah. Remember at the beginning of creation, Allah made the angels and the jinn and all these planets and stars and all of creation bow before them. If we are if we are true to our promise to Allah subhanaw taala any other questions? Yes, they are angels are they? And so you know, they say as the What am I mentioned? If you can't find love in this world, perhaps your soulmate is on another planet. Inshallah. For those of you who are single don't lose hope don't lose hope she's out there somewhere.
Any other questions? Sisters?
Any other questions? Brothers?
deep question. Okay. So the brother mentions in the Quran Allah speaks about his face or Arabic or what you wrote because Algeria with a chromosome Surah Rama Kulu Mandela found all of creation will will come to an end will die everyone will die. Well, yeah. Because the only thing that will remain is the face of Allah and Allah ministries of the Quran to beliefs. Oh, he believes Why do you not make sujood prima hudec to be at eight? Why don't you make sujood to the one I created with my two hands? How do we understand this? Does Allah face does he ever hands on the desk in the Quran, Allah says that on that day, the sock the shin of Allah will be exposed will be shown and they will make
sudo to the shin of Allah What is this? This is literally a shell of Allah. So there are two views. Some scholars have said that this is metaphorical. When Allah speaks about the Hand of Allah it means the power of Allah. When he sees that he ascends he rises up, but it means he took control of the universe. And others have said No, Allah does not speak in riddles. He is clear that Allah has a hand or hands and he has a face, but we cannot imagine
the physical attributes of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala we affirm what he affirmed for himself, he affirmed that he has he speaks and that some of these angels in his MBL heard him speak that Allah subhanaw taala created and every atom with his own hands that Allah Swanton has a face that Allah subhanaw taala has known which emanates so those things is what is in the Quran. And in sha Allah when we get there, and if you meet Allah, this is the height of creation, the height of sorry, the height of the reward of Jana is you'll get to see Allah. So yes, there is a physical form to Allah
But we can only see that on Fridays in general to favor those when even that veil that maybe some could not see beyond even the reason we couldn't get to get get the only engender that people are Jana that veil will be removed and we'll get to see the face of Allah subhanaw taala that be all of us. I mean, I mean
any last questions before yes
we're gonna have a solo at
the police station that we do professional.
Was that the valuable or was that is an incorrect Hadith it's not so this is the is a very famous story that when we submit Allah He
showed it to here to America to saw what they brought to the law as salam alayka you know, Allah responded and salaam to your own Abbey. This is Incorrect. Incorrect. A NARRATION The Tasha who that we have in Salah. The Prophet Salam told us and this is what we say in Salah, but it was not said at the salon the Mirage. So the dialogue between us in fact though, the dialogue that we do now in Salah is Surah Fatiha. There's a hadith that says when we say Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah mean Allah response, my creation has praised me a Rahmani Raheem and they've magnified me Malik Yomi deen and they glorified me II I can I will do what you can to stay in and then Allah says this is my link
with him. They say he can be able to Oh Allah you alone I worship and you alone do I need so Allah says they affirm that this is the agreement, I am the Lord and they are my servant. So what do you want us in a Serato? So Allah guide me to say, so Allah says, now I need to give you what you asked me. This con This is the conversation that you and I have with Allah every time in Salah we recite Surah Fatiha This is in Sahih Bukhari Allah. So even though we can't hear Allah but he responds to you and me when we speak to him
You can any last questions anybody else? Yes?
So it's a deep question around free will and destiny The plan was always going to be five. But if Allah said Yeah, take five and then obviously just left.
How beautiful is that? I made 50 And I reduced it to five. In that you'd learn who Allah subhanaw taala is in that you learn if you can even ask me Allah 50 is too much I want to this is no problem. I'll give you this. And I'll give you the reward, the reward of 50 So the plan was always going under the only gonna be five he was never going to burden the Ummah with 50 but he wanted to show who he is as Allah,
His mercy and His kindness to the Ummah and to show that if you can ask him something which we would not imagine you could ask Nabi Musa is teaching them to be Salam, ask Allah anything, ask Allah whatever you want and you'd find your load generous for Abu can Akram you will be generous and he will respond to you using free will and destiny Allah knows everything spamela Whatever happens is by the command and the decree of Allah there is no need for so why do we even make salah of Allah knows who's going to Jana Jana, that's a discussion for another night inshallah. That's a big discussion, everything Allah knows, but we also have free will and we have choice and Allah will
reward us based on Chela wait.
YouTube question chatbot
Are there any recommended Knuffle salah or rituals to us for tonight? No, there's nothing special significant and again, again, this is culture night. Watch my words. This is not a practice which is going to be solemn did he not call the Sahaba together on the night of the Saranda Mirage they did not have a lecture by an but Alhamdulillah it is part of the culture and the real reason why why do we get here is to get us in the Ramadan mode is to remind us that this month of Ramadan is coming and that it is a month where the doors of all the summer water open. That the rewards of Jannah available whatever wants to get there and gets there can check can attain genital for those who
missed one month. We have 6070 years of messed up life Allah forgive us. One Ramadan can fix all of it. One Ramadan can get you to join this whole journey. Just one day in Ramadan can get you the if Allah spent Allah reward you for it. And so this is one of the milestones guys, we've got one month Ramadan and then in the 15th of Shaban comes from guys who are two weeks ago, so just a reminder for that but so answer no nothing special or significant to recite tonight, besides the normal of God and the normal Salas and the Salah, but even Quran you want to make besides what I do, it's fine, but nothing specific with a mate that we serve and the marriage. We don't even know this is the
night that I've seen that we don't even know that a lot of Alana was based. Yes sir.
Is there any significance to fast on the Saranda mirage? We shouldn't we shouldn't designate a ritual for this night, this day, or this, the night of this random Mirage, the 27th of of Raja does not have a special significance. There's no extra reward. In fact, if you were going too fast, you shouldn't force Friday, only Thursday would be better for you too fast on Monday will be better for you too fast but too fast Saturday for the Easter on the Mirage. You'll get more rewards on Monday because that is sooner.
No more questions. Okay. So it's a shy. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us to, to gender to attain genital fear dose. May Allah may Allah forgive our sins and grandsons to achieve Ramadan. May Allah subhanaw taala take us when we pass away that he is happy to meet us and we have seen this place and we make dua for all those of our loved ones when the cover they experience this amazing journey every every time when they seem to Allah. I mean, what's Allah say? No, Mohammed, what are your SOP Usama Celine I have never been an amine so don't worry come on protocol
