hockey

00:01:41--> 00:02:03

I commence by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our Creator sustain and nourish protect and Chiara. We asked him the almighty the Lord of all worlds the exalted to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah long while he was sending him his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:02:06--> 00:02:19

my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, and those of you who may be tuning in from other parts of the world, I welcome you all to the first episode of this series, titled faith revival

00:02:21--> 00:02:38

where we hope to inshallah Allah each time we meet, pick an idea from the Quran and discuss it in detail in a move to revive our fate. Before I continue I have a small request if you could all please come forward and fill up the gaps in Sharla

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

the gathering would look more complete and be easier for me to

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

you know, relate to your

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

Zach

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

loveless your I mean,

00:02:54--> 00:03:23

so in a move to revive our faith, why because we have the Hadith that has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Hakim Rahim Allah if I'm not mistaken were the prophets Allah Allah sent him is reported to have said that our Eman our fate wears away in the sense it wears out like clothing like garments. And he is reported to also have said that we are supposed to keep making dua to Allah subhanho Medina for a lot to revive and renew our faith.

00:03:25--> 00:04:01

So this entire series is based on that in a move to revive our faith in a move to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Firstly, myself and then all of you all present here, those who may be tuning in and in Sharla in the future as well. Mel accepted from us. May Allah bless this gathering many make this gathering a gathering where the angels shroud us with their wings, the Sakina the tranquility of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends upon each and every one of us, all of you, discussing about you know Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean allies of a genomic high mention of us in the seven heavens, I mean, please say I

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

mean,

00:04:05--> 00:04:29

you see this intention that you have right now you are in a house from the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if your intention is sincerely that you're here for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala to get closer and to Alliance the region to revive your faith to renew your faith. You know what happens? The Hadith has been recorded in the book of Imam Bukhari Rahim Allah authentic hadith.

00:04:30--> 00:04:49

Powerful Hades indeed, you know what the prophet sallallahu Sallam says, and he is the one most knowledgeable about Allah subhanho wa Taala. So no, he's the one most knowledgeable about Allah and he's telling us and will he lie? No, he's the most truthful sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He says along the lines of these words, that if an individual

00:04:50--> 00:04:55

draws closer and to Allah subhana wa Taala, a hand span

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

hence pan Allah has Virgil

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

draws closer, a qubit slams.

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

And then he goes on to say, if one draws closer to a law, a qubit slam, a law draws closer a fadem.

00:05:17--> 00:05:37

And if an individual draws closer and to Allah subhanho wa Taala a fadem Allah draws closer and to his slave walking. And if a slave draws closer and to Allah subhanho wa Taala walking, Allah draws closer and to you hermana the Arabic term in the Hadith he comes to you running.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

Now when we say running,

00:05:42--> 00:06:19

we don't mean running like how human beings run. Allah say so in the Hadith we accepted, we believe it Kamali? Odisha Niva Jalali in a manner that befits His Majesty and His glory. Anyway, the point being in the Hadith that Allah draws closer to you, you are attempting to draw closer and to Allah, Allah does not leave you hanging by the thread. Allah does not leave you stranded. Now, Allah draws closer unto you and just imagine if the King of all kings, the Lord of all worlds, the Almighty be exalted is drawing closer unto you. And if you have a law by your side, what do you have to worry about? Nothing. You have nothing to worry about. Because you have a love with you. Well accepted

00:06:19--> 00:06:59

from us, am Allah help us all to draw as close as possible unto him subhanho wa Jalla so inshallah Allah, the Hadith, I'm sorry, the ayah that we have in place for today's discussion, the few minutes that I have with you all, is I am number 18. From the third surah in the Quran, surah Allah imraan the ayah that I read at the beginning at the inception, loss of Hannah Montana, Allah, the Almighty, He says shahidullah anahola illa Whoa, well Malika to aku let me call him ambil east, La Ilaha Illa, Allah xizor Hakeem.

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

We're going to be focused,

00:07:03--> 00:07:31

you know, with the first part of this is where Allah says, Shaheed Allahu Allahu La Ilaha Illa. Let me loosely translate the ayah. Allah bears witness isn't to me attentively. A law bears witness that there is no God, there is no deity worthy of worship other than himself. Well Malika and then the angels were only and then the people of knowledge.

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

scholars of Tafseer highlight that, that when you look at this ayah it was a law, who had the very beginning he was the first one.

00:07:46--> 00:08:36

He was the first to bear witness to proclaim that there is no deity worthy of worship other than himself. And then afterwards, it was the angels and then the people of knowledge. But at the very beginning of the first it was a law who declared this who made this declaration, that there is no deity La Ilaha Illa. There is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah. So this ayah captures so much of power, it talks about Allah subhanho wa Taala declaring himself and you know, honestly I am. The topic for today's talk is, who is Allah, but I am overwhelmed to be talking about the majestic Lord, am a woman who am I to talk about Allah. Therefore, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala puts

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

the right and appropriate words upon my tongue, to talk about him as a surgeon. And I pray that these words penetrate deep into your hearts, and that it revives our faith

00:08:48--> 00:09:05

and that it fills our hearts with the all with the fear and the consciousness of our maker subhanho wa jal, you know in another place, and so called Bukhara Allah subhanho wa Taala describes himself in more detail aligns the agenda he says,

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

In the grandest ayah in the Quran, the grand sky

00:09:10--> 00:09:11

along with

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

you know, in when you

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

say not

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

to fail

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

in

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

the

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

hole from home while you own a shed, Shane minimi Nabil Masha was the Encore co host

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

Whoa,

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

00:10:08--> 00:10:11

You know the

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

the grant is

00:10:18--> 00:10:48

in the novel for the grant is the most powerful of if I could see. And in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala describes himself in great detail. Before we translate the ayah we need to have a little bit of a context in regard to this ayah ayatul kursi at times translated as the worst of the throne ayatul kursi ayah is loosely translated as worse and could see thrown.

00:10:49--> 00:10:54

But then when we look in the books of TFC, we have many opinions put forth by the scholars.

00:10:56--> 00:11:36

Firstly, there are scholars who differentiate between the kursi and the actual Muslim Hana hordes Allah, no doubt there are some scholars who are of the opinion that could see an outsider to Arabic terms, and that they are synonymous in nature and they both mean the same thing, the throne of Allah Subhana Medina, but there are other scholars who go deeper. And they say, No, there is a difference between the two are, if you look in dictionaries, in books, like lisanna, louder than other books that you know, break down an Arabic term in great detail, the term hourish is defined as cerebral Melek in the Arabic term, which means the culture of a king, the throne of a king.

00:11:38--> 00:12:01

Now obviously, we don't mean that the arch of Allah subhanho wa Taala is like any ordinary Throne of a worldly king or a worldly ruler name, it is much greater and much grander than that. But the term Archie is used for that. When Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the throne of birth is the story of Solomon is that wassalam which we will discuss one day in sha Allah, Allah says

00:12:03--> 00:12:12

Allah talking about her throne, Allah says she has a great drone while haha our shout out him for her is a great drone ash.

00:12:13--> 00:12:38

So how is clearly translated as drone? But what about kursi? What about QC, and in terms of the hours of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Before we go into the QC, we have a Heidi, that talk about the ash of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For example, we have the hadith of Mr. rhodiola one, where he is reported to have said, along the lines of these words,

00:12:39--> 00:13:19

between the first heaven and the one above it, between the first heaven and the one above it, how many heavens Do we have, as per the Quran, and the Sunnah. Seven, seven heavens. So the first heaven, and then you move on to the second heaven. Between the two heavens, this hadith clearly states that there are 500 years, 500 years in the sense you have a distance of 500 years. And we'll come back to it. But let's just try to cover the innovation first. And then from that heaven to the next Heaven, another 500 years, and from that heaven to the next Heaven, another 500 years. So 500 years, 500 years sandwiched between each heaven until you reach the seventh heaven.

00:13:21--> 00:13:27

And then after the seventh heaven, you have 500 years and then the kursi of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

And then from the kursi, you have another 500 years and you have water,

00:13:33--> 00:14:02

water. By the way, this is even a Mr. odilon one who who is saying this, it is an authentic narration and he is a companion who would as per the scholars of Hadith who would not narrate weak narrations or his ryla in the sense, his role in the Israelite traditions. So if he's saying this, and this is something from the world of the unseen, no doubt, you must have heard it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a very close Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So between the cusi

00:14:03--> 00:14:10

there you have 500 years and then you have water, and then another 500 years and you have

00:14:11--> 00:14:24

the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In another Hadith, Islam talks about gender, about the 100 levels of gender. the topmost level is genital fear those May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all genital, amin

00:14:26--> 00:14:36

on top of genital to genital fear those is at the top and above that we have the man the throne of a loss of Hannah Montana, and a lot of states in the Koran semester

00:14:38--> 00:14:53

that he has ascended over his throne. That does that mean he has ascended like a world licking essence over his throne? No, he has ascended we accept it, how we don't ask how come iE COVID chutney vigilante again in a manner that befits His Majesty and His glory.

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

Now I want you to reflect on this Hadees for a moment

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

It's easy to say 500 years, 500 years, 500 years and then just gloss over the narration.

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

You know, we live in very modern times yes or no.

00:15:10--> 00:15:17

2017 How many of you all have heard of Elon Musk? Elon Musk, familiar name?

00:15:18--> 00:15:18

No.

00:15:20--> 00:15:30

Tesla, how many of you all have heard about Tesla, you know, the electric car. Now the thing that Sharla Srilanka in a few years, all electric cars, nice.

00:15:33--> 00:15:38

So he is a brilliant individual, researcher, scientist,

00:15:40--> 00:16:05

before Tesla, and before all these companies, he had this idea, and now he's working towards it. He set up a company, and he's making huge leaps forward. he plans on colonizing Mars, you can read about it. He plans on colonizing Mars, basically taking humans to Mars so that we can live on Mars. It's not a fantasy is really working towards it. He has a billion dollar company working on it right now as we speak.

00:16:06--> 00:16:16

But initially, when he pitched this idea across to investors, nobody was interested. Why? Because Mars living on Mars, you know, it doesn't really seem as if it's possible.

00:16:17--> 00:16:57

And he he needed a lot of money to research to build rockets and whatnot, and nobody was ready to invest. So what did he do? He looked at the cost of rockets. And then he found out that, you know, there had been, you know, drastically overly priced, and simultaneously was working on other projects like Tesla, for example, which is a booming success today. It's the best electric car, I would say, on Earth right now with so much of technology packed into it. Amazing car. And it's selling left, right and center. So that was a booming success. And with his own money, he set up a company called Space X. And currently they are working on building rockets. And like I said, working

00:16:57--> 00:17:04

towards colonizing Mars. Now we are living the whole point of me mentioning all of this is because we are living in such times interesting times.

00:17:06--> 00:17:36

But yet, when we talk about pace, in all honesty, we haven't covered much. Even in terms of the moon, there are so many conspiracy theories that perhaps they never really made it to the moon, Allahu Allah, Allah knows best and even if they did, have you covered the entirety of Srilanka. No. Have you traveled to every single corner of this planet? No. So even if they didn't make you to the moon, it was just one tiny area of the moon and then they came back.

00:17:37--> 00:17:45

So that's just the moon. What about the other planets and science? With all due respect keeps changing one day Pluto exists in the next day, it doesn't exist.

00:17:47--> 00:18:16

And there are so many stars out there so many galaxies. We are part of the Milky Way galaxy. But is that the only galaxy? No, there are so many more galaxies, so many galaxies within this universe. And my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, all of this put together everything, not just Earth, all the planets, the entire solar system, the sun, the moon, the stars, this galaxy and all the other galaxies out there. And if life exists, all of that included

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

is all within the first heaven.

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

First heaven

00:18:24--> 00:18:31

and that's why Allah says in Surah Rahman, Yama Shahada Genie will see in his atonement

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

for zoom in Oporto.

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

T one out the photo.

00:18:39--> 00:18:47

Assembly of Jim kinda mankind, if you can penetrate through the heavens or down into the earth famzoo then do so.

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

For zona

00:18:51--> 00:19:06

de Soto. You will not be able to penetrate except by the authority granted by Allah subhanho wa Taala, you can try all you want to penetrate, but you will not be able to penetrate, you will not be able to penetrate.

00:19:09--> 00:19:53

So this is just to give you an idea of the context we're talking about. The first heaven alone, we haven't covered anything in regard to the first heaven. And then Allah says 500 years and these 500 years, we quickly assume 500 years of our years, but we'll know who I am. Allah knows best. It could be years by Allah. A day by Allah is equivalent to 1000 years by us Subhana Allah do the math. Your calculators will fail you the 500 years, 500 years, 500 years and each day by Allah is equivalent to 1000 years by us because Allah is above time. We are bound by time. We are bound by time as the creation of Allah, Allah created time Allah is above Time, time does not apply to Allah. Allah can

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

bend and manipulate time the way he wants.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

That is a law. That is the creator we're talking about.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

So that created the Porsche belongs to him. Now what about the kursi?

00:20:05--> 00:20:41

Even the best of the long line Whoa, he brings forth a very clear statement in this regard. He says that the kursi is the footstool of Allah subhanho wa Taala the currency is the footstool of Allah azza wa jal now even at best will be a long line from now you should know, he's a see when it comes to the sea and ocean. So much of knowledge and ability again, another young and very close Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he defines the kursi as being the footstool of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in another Hadith, we have a Buddha of your loved one, another famous component of the province of Alberta, and I'm going to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and asking him Yasser

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

Allah, could you tell me about the kursi the nation goes along the lines of these words.

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

Allah says in the Quran, in the same area that we read was The accuracy you somehow it was his kursi extends over the heavens and the earth. So tell me about the QC

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

a law about you know, this statement of the purpose allows them to should send shivers down your spine.

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

He says the QC

00:21:07--> 00:21:20

if you want a comparison, if you want a comparison to understand the greatness of the cusi Mr. Malhotra seven, the seven heavens and the earth, all put together.

00:21:21--> 00:21:53

In comparison to the cusi seven heavens. I want you to Don't, don't just gloss over when I say seven heavens think about the expanse of the universe. Think about the sun. Think about the moon. Think about our planets, the stars, the galaxies, think of all of that. That's just the first seven, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth seventh. The whole idea of this episode and these episodes inshallah is to fill our hearts with the greatness of Allah, I want you all to travel with me think of a law. Think of the creation of a law. All of that put together.

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

In comparison to the could see

00:21:58--> 00:22:23

is like a Wah last desert. I want you to picture this now. Think if you are on a chopper ride, you're in a helicopter, and you're flying over the Sahara Desert. Which desert Sahara Desert, big or not? Very big, very lost. And you have whilst you are in the chopper, you have an iron ring with you a tiny ring

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

that was flying over the desert? If you drop the ring?

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

Will you be able to find that thing?

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

Will you be able to find it? Yes, if it has GPS you can find?

00:22:42--> 00:22:47

I'm talking about an iron ring. Without GPS, you won't be able to find it. Why?

00:22:48--> 00:23:14

Because it's nothing. It's going to be like a speck a grain of sand in that desert. How on earth are you going to find it? That is the comparison between the heavens and the earth put together in comparison to the currency of Allah, the heavens and the earth tiny eye and bring the currency of Allah, the vast desert. The comparison doesn't end there. And now you need to compare the cusi with the ash.

00:23:15--> 00:23:29

Now the kursi becomes the ring and the arch becomes the desert. The arch the throne of Allah is the Greatest and the most watched thing from the creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala the image, the throne of Allah subhana wa

00:23:34--> 00:23:52

so this is the creator we're talking about my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. And I could see this is why this is known as the grand the grand the grand test and the greatest idea in the for the most powerful ayah in the Quran. And it goes into great detail talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Himself describes them, Allahu

00:23:55--> 00:23:59

Allah law, there is no deity worthy of worship other than Him. And hi.

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

I'll call you the EverLiving the eternal, the one who sustains everything, everything.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

Again, you know, when we read this if we gloss over,

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

when we say Allah sustains everything we think of human beings, we think animals, you need to think deeper you need to ponder and reflect.

00:24:25--> 00:24:55

Think about the oceans. Think about the depths of the oceans. Think about the animals living in there, who is providing for them. There are depths that human beings have not ventured as of yet. In pitch darkness, so many feet deep, and there are huge creatures living down there. who's providing for them in that pitch black darkness because sunlight does not reach those areas. It is a law. I'll call you the Sustainer of everything. A law

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

laughable gelada.

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

The name of a law

00:25:02--> 00:25:34

To which every other name connects itself to not the other way around. A law has magnificent and glorious names a smart will personnel. All the names of Allah has an infinite number of names. Remember, Allah has an infinite number of names. We think that a lonely has 99 names not the correct opinion is that Allah has an infinite number of names. And all those names point to Allah lovable, Jelena as Allah says in Surah, Al hasha, who along with the

00:25:37--> 00:25:37

in

00:25:39--> 00:25:39

many,

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

many,

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

many

00:25:47--> 00:25:48

diseases

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

so bad

00:25:57--> 00:25:57

so

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

long

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

as

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

you said before William whom

00:26:29--> 00:26:39

every name of a lot of points to love boudjellal the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. So Allah starts this off by saying Allahu

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

Allah, there is no deity worthy of worship other than Him and high Europa you and then Allah says the who sin it senator when

00:26:52--> 00:27:19

you and I, we are weaklings, puny human beings. We can wait for a while except that we fall asleep. We feel tired, we fall ill you know sometimes you can be the most powerful person but yet when you fall ill you realize how weak you are. You can't get out of bed. You may have all the wealth in the world you may have mentioned you may have everything you may have all kinds of delicacies in front of you. Yet when you fall in

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

all of that fades away.

00:27:23--> 00:27:33

It is Allah. the deeds of the day go up to him before the deeds of the night the deeds of the night go up to him before the deeds of the day. He Jabu who knew now I want you all to ponder the veil of Allah subhanho wa Taala is made of light. A law who knows

00:29:04--> 00:29:49

when Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth, the will of Allah is made of light loca for whom Allah Azza had to watch he he meant to her in a bus or a woman Holton okoma College latos law, if he were to remove that way, if he were to remove that veil of his, the light of the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala would desert would burn every single creation in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

Our eyesight limited. Do we have nice

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

Vision, do we have infrared vision? Now, certain animals do, certain animals do. But our eyesight, we say the, the, you know the vision of a hawk. Why? Because the hawk or the eagle can see from high above

00:30:16--> 00:30:34

the sight of a law is nothing of that sort is nothing like that because laser committed, there is nothing in comparison to Allah. But we know that Allah sees everything. So that means every single creation would be dazzled by the light of the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the law that we are talking about.

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

He says that who the who's in Atlanta, la who Murphy some Archie mama fill out everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah, everything, everything.

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

blip bleep bleep bleep.

00:31:34--> 00:31:40

But in comparison, what do you think you are? We think I am mighty of ourselves.

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

But in reality, we are weaklings.

00:31:45--> 00:31:56

We should be in so much of all in regard to this great and powerful creator of ours, the Lord of old words, everything belongs unto him. Everything.

00:31:57--> 00:32:32

don't worship your intellect. Today we have. And again, it's because see, that's the purpose of the series to revive our faith. Because when your fate starts to wear away chevonne seizes the opportunity to put in doubts. We start questioning the existence of this powerful maker, with sustaining everything was created everything we start questioning, we start worshipping our intellect. And we say this God really exist is there really a god, you start questioning a lot more time. When you have brothers and sisters in STEM.

00:32:33--> 00:32:39

You should know that the amount of the angels they don't go up or down one level.

00:32:42--> 00:33:11

amount of the profits rising, rising, rising, rising, rising are among like the equalizer up and down, up and down. So we hit those spiritual lows. And that's when Shere Khan seizes the opportunity. So whenever you hit those lows, it is incumbent it is important that you stay with the right company that you further your knowledge that you read the Quran study about the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and fill your heart with a man because when your heart is filled with the man,

00:33:12--> 00:33:33

the levels your spirituality starts to rise and rise and rise. And these gatherings are important for that. You know you can you can read you can do all of that. But these gatherings to come to be in the house have a lot to talk about a lot to feel it. To feel the wives it's important for me firstly and then for all of you all, that's when our hearts are filled with the man

00:33:34--> 00:34:02

the home office and at home I fill out. inshallah Allah when you pray Serato after this, when you pray Serato tomorrow, when you wake up in the night and pray perhaps when you pray Serato fudger I want you all to think of the grand idea of the greatness of Allah. This is the creator you are worshiping you are subjected unto as a slave. This is the creator that you are prostrating unto this great and powerful creator, everything belongs unto Him.

00:34:03--> 00:34:28

And then Allah says Mandela, the arranger who elaborate evening, who can intercede by him except with His permission. So no one can intercede. You know on the day of PM, a horrendous day, a horrifying day. We will run from profit to profit. We will go to Adam alayhis salaam wa Salaam and we will plead we will

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

intercede on behalf of us and He will say No I am not the person for it. Go to this prophet. We will go to Prophet Abraham Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam and we will plead we will beg. We can't bear the torment of this day intercede on behalf of us. And that great prophet will say I have never seen a law so angry normally become angry like this ever again. I am not fit to intercede go to this profit we will go from profit to profit Moses Jesus Abraham Joseph who

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

Jacob all these prophets

00:35:03--> 00:35:08

and they will all refuse, they will keep referring to another prophet, another prophet, another prophet.

00:35:10--> 00:35:17

until we finally go on to our beloved Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:35:18--> 00:35:30

my mother, my father and myself parents and sacrifice for him Salallahu alaihe values, we will go on to him and we will plead and we will bang and he will say, Yes,

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

I am fit to intercede

00:35:35--> 00:35:46

and he will seek the permission of Allah and he believed the seed and Allah will grant him permission and he will intercede on behalf of all of us Mohammed sal Allahu Allah un USA.

00:35:48--> 00:35:57

So, no one can intercede except with the permission of Allah Subhana horns had and then a lot goes on to say yeah, been a the mama fall from

00:35:59--> 00:36:31

Allah knows a lot talks about his knowledge. Yeah, Allah ma baina IDM Allah knows what is by you all, what is behind you in front of you, everything is known unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. And nothing is hidden. The knowledge of a law is infinite. And that's why I said don't worship your intellect, don't worship your knowledge. Our knowledge is so so so so so finite, so limited, the knowledge of Allah infinite. Do you see the if you really understand the concept of infinity, you will know what I'm talking about. The knowledge of Allah is infinite.

00:36:33--> 00:37:10

We have Hadith that has been recorded in the book of in the Mr. Coffee ma'am Hakeem Rahim Allah and it is authentic as per the conditions of the Shane Imam Bukhari and Muslim it is authentic as per their conditions even though they have not recorded it in their books. A Buddha sorry, even at best, Ravi Allahu anhu. He says that obey even capital the last one who mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reported to have said and the narration goes along the lines of these words. It's an interesting narration. So ly Salah Salem talks about the encounter between musala salatu salam and how the there was an encounter that has been mentioned in so through Kef in detail which

00:37:10--> 00:37:15

we will discuss during another day inshallah, but this point I'll mention it and we're close to wrapping off inshallah.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

When musala latos law medical there.

00:37:20--> 00:37:42

They set out on a journey and on the journey. They spot a tiny bird, a tiny bird, and that bird was dipping its tiny week we have a tiny bird which obviously has a tiny beak, Asana. Now this bird is dipping its tiny beak into the ocean. How there looks at Moosa hydrolase looks at musante salat wa salam and he says

00:37:43--> 00:38:09

that above, ponder, you know, ponder and reflect on what this bird is saying. So musala that wassalam asks how they realized that was what is the bird say? Now he goes on to tell him and inform him about what the bird was saying. He says the same manner in mocha. We're in Mombasa fear in Milan in a for them inquiry.

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

The knowledge of Moosa

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

the sense your knowledge, the bird is saying your knowledge over there.

00:38:19--> 00:38:43

And a law talks about further in the Quran, informing us that he was given knowledge from a law he had so much of knowledge and knowledge that was a great prophet of Allah he was given so much of knowledge. Can we compare our knowledge to the knowledge of these two individuals who have been given knowledge by Allah named never? The bird is saying your knowledge and the knowledge of moose are put together.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

In comparison to the knowledge of a law

00:38:49--> 00:38:53

is like what is in my beak and the ocean.

00:38:55--> 00:39:02

The few droplets of water in the beak of the bird that is the knowledge of masala salat wa salam and Hadith is not was not put together a few droplets

00:39:03--> 00:39:33

and the ocean is the knowledge of Allah and scholars go on to explain that even the ocean can be quantified. It is finite at some point, if you have the right machinery, if you have the right equipment, you can quantify how much of water is in the ocean. But the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is even beyond that. This example is only for our weak minds to fathom, to perceive to understand the knowledge of Allah is far beyond that. No shows no shows, as he has no shows. Infinite.

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

Infinite, that's the knowledge of Allah, Allah ma baina it

00:39:40--> 00:39:56

whether you hate to nabeshima an enemy in that inertia, and no one, no one can comprehend can gain anything of knowledge unless he wills if Allah wills then you will gain knowledge otherwise you will remain ignorant. May Allah save us all from ignorance, I mean,

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

and then Allah says what's the outcome?

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

See you who's Mr. whitey one of the cusi have a ma the footstool of Allah spreads over the heavens and the earth. And this is something that we already discussed. While I do the Houma, La Jolla

00:40:16--> 00:40:30

and the preservation of the heavens and the earth, it does not tie Allah Subhana. Allah has been doing it from the beginning of creation, Allah is doing it and Allah will do it. And it does not tie our maker subhanho wa Taala. Think about it.

00:40:31--> 00:40:47

If you are great human being who thinks high and mighty of himself, if you are given the responsibility, let's say you are the richest person you're richer than Bill Gates, or for that matter if whoever is the richest in the face of this earth with real assets to prove it,

00:40:49--> 00:41:13

and not the stock market stuff. Yeah. So you've got all gold reserves and whatnot. Okay? You're the richest person. And if you are given the responsibility of feeding every single creation, every single organism in the oceans for one day, will you be able to fulfill it, you have to make sure that every single creature is fed?

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

Will you be able to do it?

00:41:19--> 00:41:32

I'm not even talking about two, three days, just one day, will you be able to do it once for one meal? Can you make sure every single creature has been fed, that every single bird flies back with its belly full? Can you make sure

00:41:33--> 00:41:33

you can't.

00:41:35--> 00:41:45

But Allah has been doing it from the beginning allies to doing it and allow me to do it until the end of time and whether you do it will not tie our makers.

00:41:47--> 00:42:03

So my dear, respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, this is a law. But honestly, this is just a tiny glimpse. Within the 45 minutes or the one hour that I had with you all I just given you all a tiny glimpse of our maker.

00:42:05--> 00:42:51

And this is the beginning of this series, inshallah, we are going to go into IR because at the end of the day, the Quran that we have with us is not a creation, it is not a creation, it is qalamoun law, the speech of Allah Subhana Allah, the speech of this great creator, every Think about it, every idea, every word, every letter is in its place for a reason not by coincidence, this maker Do you think he will utter words, few title words, in vain, without a purpose, name, every single letter, every single word has its place and purpose. So we are going to study in sha Allah, we are going to study in detail. We're going to go into the ayah and deduce lessons. And we're going to

00:42:51--> 00:43:07

apply these lessons in our lives. We're going to instill in our hearts the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we're going to expel all doubts that the devil keeps casting are going to pray unto Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the strength to keep on

00:43:08--> 00:43:25

going forward in terms of our spirituality, in terms of purifying our hearts, in terms of filling our hearts with positive elements in terms of ridding ourselves of all toxic and negative elements and staying away from the traps of the devil. So inshallah Allah

00:43:27--> 00:43:33

will be having these sessions every third week, every month, every third week.

00:43:35--> 00:43:42

And I think the masjid has put up posters, and if you follow me on social media, I'm on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter,

You know, I'll be putting up posters and you will be updated in regard to the topics in regard to the timings and whatnot in sha Allah, Allah, and I hope you will make it and I hope that we that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the opportunity we have to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for this opportunity, I have to thank Eliza vigil Firstly, for blessing me with this platform with this opportunity to be able to talk about him subhanho wa Taala for all of us to discuss about our makers of Hana Medina, we thank we thank him and we pray that he keeps giving us such opportunities to keep meeting and talking about him so Hannah Montana metalizer will forgive
