comments by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our Creator sustainer nareesha protector and cure the exalted the Lord of all worlds. I asked him the almighty to Chava his choices to blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:01:43--> 00:02:08

my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam first and foremost, as usual, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhana wa tada and to be conscious of him jell O Allah during every single second of our lives. If we wish to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa and may He make us from the victorious and successful ones I mean,

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

inshallah Dinah for today's photo,

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

I hope to be touching on the explanation or the Tafseer

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

of one particular worse, one particular idea from Surah Toluca.

00:02:25--> 00:02:43

Now, most of you might be aware, that sort of is indeed a powerful Sora from the ministers in the Nobel for an answer to Luca have has a very powerful relation to this day, otherwise known as the best of days, as per the words of Mohammed Salvator abeba, Sam Weiland,

00:02:44--> 00:03:28

he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his report who have said hi yo yo metadata Allah He shampoo Yama Juma v Hooda, Adam Murphy, tequila Jana Murphy, aqui Jimena Akuma Kala la salatu salam, that the best of days upon which the sun has risen is Friday. The best of days upon which the sun has risen is Friday. It was on a Friday that our father Adam Island is salatu salam was created. It was on a Friday that he was admitted entry into Jenna into paradise, and it was on a Friday, but he was taken out of Paradise, the best of days and sort of has a very close relationship with this particular day. Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reputed to have said along the lines of these

00:03:28--> 00:03:53

words, that the one who reads sorcerer can have on a Friday. He will be blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala with a light that will extend or illuminate him until the coming Friday until the next Friday. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the one who reads Fukuoka on Friday that surah will bring about a light for him on the day of gamma May Allah subhanho wa Taala is the reckoning upon all of us, I mean,

00:03:55--> 00:04:20

in another particular video in regard to another word shoe, related to circa Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the one who memorizes the first and ayat of Surah touriga have, that particular individual will be saved will be protected from the fitna of the jail, which will be from the biggest of fitness to ever be afflicted upon mankind. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all from the trials and fitting of the jail and been

00:04:21--> 00:04:36

so suitable to have in and of itself is a very powerful surah. Now within that surah from not mistaken it is is number 50 the ayah that I have it at the inception, where Allah subhanho wa Taala he states, what is

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

this truly Adam fussa do? He believes he can imagine until the end of the AI.

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

Now this particular is

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

a powerful idea within a powerful surah that is talking about a very, very powerful incident that took place in the heavens to handle a powerful incident

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

and this was

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

During or right after the creation of our father Adam alayhis salatu salam, as you can see, there's a close relationship with everything. So it will have to be read on a day, which is the best of days upon which the sun has risen, a day during which our father was created a day a day during which he was admitted entry into gender, a day during which he was taken out of gender. And now we're going to talk about an idea that captures the incident that took place in the heavens, an incident that turned around many things that brought about many things. And we are going to go into a little bit of detail and discuss it in Atlanta. And

00:05:41--> 00:06:19

before we begin, we would like to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he opens the dose of beneficial understanding for all of us, and that he saves us from knowledge that does not benefit us in this world as well as the hereafter as the scholars of report we have said, in law, in fact, don't lie about that there are certain things that knowing about those things don't benefit you in any way, and being ignorant about those things don't harm you in any way, and even won't lie, in fact, knowledge that does not benefit jehlen liable. Now, there are certain things that if you are ignorant about those things, that ignorance will most definitely harm you. But likewise, there are

00:06:19--> 00:06:31

things that do not benefit us in this world nor the Hereafter, and in regard to those things, being ignorant of them does not harm us malice can Montana open the dose of beneficial understanding for all of us, I mean,

00:06:33--> 00:06:52

so, make the Almighty He starts off the ayah by saying what is what is as most of them have as your own scholars of Tafseer can be interpreted as well. In other words, remember or recall the day or the incident or the incident when

00:06:53--> 00:07:38

and the incident goes on. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the particular area, what is called na and recall and remember, when we said when we said Nakula, if you analyze the term pool, now, you will notice that it is in the plural form in the Arabic language pool now stems from the pool which means to say something to say something so pool to means I said something it's in the past tense anyway, go to means I have said something. But here Allah subhanho wa Taala is using this particular term in his plural form where he has the Virgil is stating Khulna. And remember when we said lil mela eeka to the angels, and you might also notice throughout the Koran that there are many places

00:07:38--> 00:08:00

where lions Virgil addresses himself as Khulna or in an zellen Indeed, We sent down so the question may arise as to who is the V we all know who will walk who say that ally is one ally is one. So who is the V and why is Allah subhana wa Taala using this particular pronoun, the pronoun a V.

00:08:01--> 00:08:46

There are around two or three opinions to explain this primarily, this V is known as the V of royalty, the V of royalty numeral album, The V of royalty, like certain even if you take it in our context, certain royal families, perhaps the kings, the Queen's, when they address themselves, and when they say something, they would say we issued a command, we did this we did that instead of saying I issued a command or I did this or I did that. And that we is known as the V of royalty, it's a plural, but still it's known as the V of royalty for the plural of royalty. So Alliance, the virgin is using we here not to denote that he and perhaps others are involved, or that there are

00:08:46--> 00:09:05

other gods we are not supposed to ever entertain that thought analyzer which will save us from that, but rather he is using vi to highlight His grandia His greatness that it is alized Virgil at the end of the day in an zelner who feel a little hotter Indeed, We sent it down I eat the Quran during the night of power.

00:09:07--> 00:09:24

And there's another opinion that has been reported to have been put forth. And that is that whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term v. There is an indication that perhaps it was a loss of Hannah more to analyze the budget is delegating the tasks to angels.

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

If you analyze the ayah carefully, when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about sending down what he Eliza Virgil uses the pronoun we because obviously we are all aware of the fact that he would generally come down Why are jabril Allahu salatu salam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be amidst the Sahaba in one night and I'll image mine and then what he would come down now it will not come down by its own its own but rather Jabra. Lisa wasallam would bring down the walkie and delivered unto Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said alone while you're ready to sell him would listen to

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

briella Alisa wassalam, reading the words of a loss of Hannah Montana attentively and after he had grasped the words he would read it unto the Sahaba. One night I'll imagine who in turn would grasp it from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have an authentic hadith that once Mohammed said along while your le usnm was seated with the Sahaba

00:10:21--> 00:10:44

are gone I can only imagine. And then suddenly, he sallallahu alayhi wasallam drops his head in the sense he went into a line slumbers, Panama, think of that site What a beautiful site, the Sahaba on a tiny island in Japan how we envied them, they will always seem to with Mohammed Salah Salem and the witness Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dropping his head in a light slumber a light map.

00:10:45--> 00:11:12

And then he said number one, he will He will send them within a few moments he raises his head and he smiles he's beaming from ear to ear. The Sahaba Don't let it in immediately asked Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Yasser Allah, what is making you smile? What is making you smile? And then those are the lines that a lot Why didn't you send them tells them I have been revealed unto me and then he said a lot more I think you went on to read

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

this Milan Mahoney was he in

00:11:24--> 00:11:30

first one Neo Vika one how in Shani.

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

When we listen to the words of amico subhanho wa Taala goosebumps Ivana was run over our skin,

00:11:40--> 00:12:00

shadows run down our spines, but this just imagine listening to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reading the words of Allah subhana wa tada the Sahaba gauntlet Allah Allah divine, we're all listening to him so allamani very reasonably big. So the point be that you've been listening to cinema bring the ayah down and Mohamed Salah listen would relate to the Sahaba.

00:12:01--> 00:12:41

So jabril Elisa to Islam would generally not come in his true form. He sort of long while when he was lm had witnessed jabril alysha to Islam in its true form once twice or thrice, depending on the varying opinions, and it's the scholars once twice or thrice, and that form of gibi knowledge that wassalam was too overwhelming because he was known as Archangel Gabriel, the greatest and most powerful of angels debate alysha Krishna in the Hadith where Mohammed Salah al Islam witnessed him in his true form, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on to describe him. He has massive wings, a number of wings, so many hundreds of wings, and those wings would cover the east to the west, the

00:12:41--> 00:12:59

entire horizon. And it would be such an overwhelming and amazing sight that when he would descend, there would be pearls, rubies, jewels, gems, valuable stones cascading from his rings, a magnificent and enormous site. So it was very rare that he

00:13:00--> 00:13:40

would come in its true form. Most of the time he would take on the gun is of a human being. And from the human beings, he chose the form of a Sahabi, a companion by the name here to the Ken vldlr. One most of the time. Now this can be a long one was a very handsome Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba did one little image mine more or less figured this out because at times they would be on an expedition and I would come to Mohammed Salah to them even when he was on on a journey. They would be on an expedition and they knew for a fact that it will kill him. He was not amidst them and they were miles away from Medina. And then suddenly, they see the theater

00:13:41--> 00:14:18

next to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was no way he would have to teleport himself if he was to make it to that particular location from Medina. So they started to connect the dots and they figured because Mohammed Salah is in the mood right after that come and say is revealed to me or I received a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they made the connection that zebrina Elisa wassalam would come in the guise of defeat will kill vldlr one. Then we have the famous hadith of gibreel where we know Allah one who narrates by the man who do Lucena. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the young he thought, you know, don't shady do biographia shady do Samba de Sha, la,

00:14:19--> 00:14:19

la La,

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

La La, la, la la, la la la. La. He was selling them.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

But a cafe nffc de bahcall yeah Mohammed with neon in Islam in the very inception of Amaro the Allahu anhu he states One fine day, we were all seated with Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam we observed a fine young man wearing sparkling white clothes, he had jet black hair, he makes his way towards the gathering. He makes his way right to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sits in front of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a manner that his knees were touching the knees of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his kneecaps were touching the kneecaps. The blesser kneecaps of Mohammed Salah. Why

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

Rarely sell him. He places his hands on his ties and then an amazing dialogue commences between this man and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fast forward it along and beautiful Hadith towards the end of the Hadith after the man leaves, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks at

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

the other one who is the narrator of the Hadith and he tells him, he asked him Yeah, Omar.

00:15:23--> 00:15:40

Omar, do you know who the questioner was Amaro the long line who he responds just as how the Sahaba Allah Allah divine would generally respond. Allah, Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best Yasser Allah, and then the supervisor sallallahu alayhi wa sallam educates Amato, the Allahu anhu

00:15:41--> 00:16:09

as a co convener, it was none other than jabril who had come to teach you your deen and he was teaching the deen to the Sahaba and by extension to all of us in the form of a Q and A session, if you will. He was asking questions and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was was responding. So from this idea to that we understand that that Muslim would come in the guise of human beings and give revelation to Mohammed Salah is now coming back to the

00:16:10--> 00:16:53

pronoun of loyalty. The second opinion is that whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala delegates a task. Take another example. Allah is the widow sending down rain Allah says in the Quran, we send down the rain from the heavens. That to the pronoun V is used because each rain drop Subhanallah Think about it. I want you all to ponder, I want you all to reflect on this major. Each raindrop is accompanied by an angel. And the task for that angel is to make sure that that raindrop makes it to the location that it's supposed to reach Panama. Think about it, how many raindrops fall and then now multiply that think about the angels.

00:16:55--> 00:17:40

Mama udara because no one knows in regard to the army, the forces of Allah except Allah subhanho wa Taala some of you might have heard about bacon Mahmoud, the much frequented house, bacon Mahmoud is a house in the heavens, in the house is a house in the heavens. And it is an alignment to the Canada we have the house of Allah known as the Canada on earth house that is never ever left alone. That is circumambulated 20 473 167 65 days around the year. Even if they are the floods to Panama they have been so hard but they have been individuals who Wade and swim around the Kaaba in tawaf remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. Likewise, in direct alignment in the heavens, there is a house known as

00:17:40--> 00:18:23

bacon Mahmoud, the much frequented house. Now this house, according to one particular Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 70 towns and angels make their way into this house every single day, and no one hears about those angels after that every single day. From the very beginning. We don't know when this commence only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, until today and until the day of every single day, just imagine how many angels tons and tons of angels all subject to the King of all kings was Hannah Montana. So when alerus talks about tasks that he delegates onto the angels he uses the pronoun we but when Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about himself alone and matters related to

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

himself alone, such as a bird,

00:18:26--> 00:18:41

such as worship, Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the the pronoun I, such as during the conversation with the Great Prophet Musa alayhi salatu salam What happened? allies the virtual state pool in any

00:18:44--> 00:18:44

law

00:18:49--> 00:19:40

firm bodoni up the Minnesota attorney victory, international law indeed I am Allah La Ilaha Illa Anna there is no deity worthy of worship other than I moodini worship Me, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say fire Buddha now worship us or we are worthy of worship, no worship me. Indeed I am Allah there is no deity worthy of worship other than I welcome you salata Vickery established further to remember me to remember me not to remember us, whenever it comes to matters related to Allah alone. Eliza gel uses the pronoun but now here in this particular ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala states what is called melodica. Remember and recall the day when we said to the angels, so here, the pronoun is

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

the pronoun of grandia, the pronoun of greatness because the angels have been exempted Allah is talking to the angels. And remember when we said to the angels, whose to duly prostrate and to Adam make sajida and to make such that and to other now what type of a sajida was this particular sajida

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

There are three opinions that remain the table from scholars the first opinion okay and before that let me define what that is or rather what sujood is. You see when you take Arabic terms in general you have a literal definition and you have a technical definition you may have heard me say this before when I say often you have a technical definition you have a literal definition takes Allah for example, the literal definition of Salah is the invocation you take the technical definition the shadow is the conventional definition of Salah. It is a set of prescribed actions that a set of prescribed actions and statements that come in from the middle to the farm and end with the slim

00:20:36--> 00:21:19

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. This is the technical definition of Salah. Likewise, sujood the literal definition of sujood is hoodoo authored to humiliate yourself, to humble yourself to humble yourself in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This this is the literal definition and most of the time the literal definition is very closely connected to the technical definition. The technical definition of sujood is to place your face or to place your head, which is the highest point of your body, on the ground, in a specific and prescribed manner. In a burqa unto Allah Subhana, Medina, Montana, in worship unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the technical definition of sujood. Now

00:21:19--> 00:21:51

put that definition into context with the ayah. And now think about what Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels was to duly Adam, prostrate unto other now what type of a prostration was this? Three opinions? The first opinion was that it is the frustration that we are all familiar with the frustration of greatness, the frustration of a bird, but you have to understand one very important thing. They will not worshipping at the Miley salatu salam, they will prostrating unto other Mali salatu salam

00:21:52--> 00:22:31

and in turn they were worshipping Allah Subhana horden by prostrating unto other monnalisa to Salaam they were worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now you might wonder how so? So Jude is an active Eva and they are prostrating unto him. How are they worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. The logic behind this is that the angels were obeying the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It was Allah who commanded them to prostrate so by prostrating unto Adam alayhis salaam. They were in reality worshiping Allah azza wa jal, they were worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to prostrate towards the Kaaba. Now does that mean that we are worshipping the Kaaba? Are we worshiping the

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

Kaaba? If someone were to look at the spectacle of

00:22:34--> 00:22:57

the people who go and Umrah and Hajj around the Kaaba all introduce them to the Kaaba, would anyone think that they are all prostrating or worshiping the Kaaba? No, we have been commanded to face the direction of the Kaaba and we do so in turn worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Likewise, the angels they prostrated unto Adam alleys that was Salaam, but in reality they were worshipping Allah Subhana Medina by obeying His command.

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

The second opinion is that the sujood was not a sudo that's a bad berada it was a sujood of

00:23:06--> 00:23:27

a sudo the respect as sudo known as a greeting if you will, and this used to be applicable during the nations of the past and it is not applicable anymore. It is not applicable anymore but in the nations of the past it was applicable take the story of use of Elisa to Salaam Allah mentions in the Noble Quran was the end of the story What happened? What have I

00:23:28--> 00:23:28

really

00:23:31--> 00:23:47

remember when they put their parents on a throne This was after the entire family was united now use Valley salat wa salam is the Minister of Finance, if you will of Egypt. He sees the dream and the very beginning little young youth at that time he sees a dream one in nearer to

00:23:53--> 00:24:19

God when he goes and tells his father Indeed, I saw a dream where I saw 11 stars, the sun and the moon, all celestial objects making sajida and to me that the Father jacobellis that was never knew this to be a very powerful dream. And towards the end of the story, we see the dream manifesting itself and coming through Where are the 11 brothers and their parents, they all fell down in sajida. And to use valleys that was solid, but were they worshipping us?

00:24:20--> 00:24:45

No, they were not worshiping us valleys. That was enough. It was a gesture of respect a mark of honor, if you will, and it was applicable for the nations of the past. And it is not applicable anymore. We only prostrate we only place our heads on the ground for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we don't do it for anybody else. But this is the second opinion. The third opinion is that they consider Adam and Islam

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

to be the Kabbalah. And Allah azza wa jal was, in the sense Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels to prostrate they were using animalistic Islam as the Qibla and in turn worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. This particular opinion is somewhat really

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

To the first opinion but Allah knows best. The first opinion seems to be the more plausible and the more favorable opinion in this particular regard. Moving on you might wonder as to why did Allah subhanho wa Taala command the angels to prostrate into advantage that Islam and firstly you have to understand that we have no right whatsoever to reason as to why you can't reason because it is the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are in servitude and realize the agenda we obey Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't ask the lions. Why have you asked me to pray five times a day? Why do you want me to give out Zika Why do I have to find out the month of Ramadan? Why do I have to go on Hajj? Why do

00:25:39--> 00:26:19

I have to make a walk around the house of Allah on the Kaaba seven times they don't ask why. But if this question would arise as to why were the angels commanded to prostrate and to Adam alayhis salaam, there are a few hiccups there are a few wisdoms, if you will that have been highlighted by the scholars of their seat and I will share them with you all in shout louder than the first hikma the first wisdom is to raise the rank to raise the status of admati salatu salam it is to raise the rank of mankind to raise the rank and the status of Adam Elisa to Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the noble annual aka the Corona, Benny Adam, that indeed we have honored. We have honored

00:26:20--> 00:27:02

and we have garnered respect unto the children of Adam Elisa to Islam you and I. And apart from that, we also know that Allah subhanho wa Taala honored Adam and Eve that was Salaam with five distinguishing factors. Number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala honor number five the other malice that was Salam by creating him with his own hands. And when we say hands, we don't mean hands like our hands. There is nothing in comparison to a loss of Hannah Montana Lisa committed he Shay, Allah subhanho wa Taala states that he created him with his own hands and his hands are hands according to His majesty and glory. We don't we don't go deep into that. Nor do we compare Allah subhanho wa

00:27:02--> 00:27:40

Taala to the creation, basic commitment, he said there is nothing in comparison to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Nonetheless, Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam alysha to Islam with his own hands, and that was a distinguishing factor to honor the values that was solemn. Number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala breathed life into other minds that was Salaam Allahu Akbar. distinguishing factor number two, distinguishing factor number three is that Allah subhanho wa Taala place Adam alysha that was slammed as a halifa on this earth as he states in the Quran in surah baqarah in Ninja a lot of the halifa indeed I am going to place on Earth a halifa halifa in the sense of creation that will

00:27:40--> 00:28:10

succeed generation after generation of creation that will succeed generation after generation halifa number four, Allah subhanho wa Taala taught at least that was lamb I lemma who Allah azza wa jal taught at the Masters level. This is a very powerful point. When Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam Alisha Kusama want you all to pay an attentive ear in this regard, but Allah subhanho wa Taala created militia to symbolize the budget state to the noble for a while.

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

nibi asthma,

00:28:33--> 00:28:51

asthma akula Allah subhanho wa Taala taught Adam is to say if I were to loosely or directly translate the ayah, the translation would go as such that Allah subhana wa Taala taught Adam Elisa to Salaam, the names of every single thing. Now you might wonder,

00:28:53--> 00:29:35

okay, but how does that connect to knowledge, the names of every single thing? Well, the understanding in this regard is that was kind of a dialogue taught at MIT is that was around a number of things, a lot of things so much to the extent that there have been manifests your own web highlight that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught Adam, Alicia to Salaam, the name of every single thing until the day of Korea until the day of today, if I were to take my mobile phone out and show it to you all, you would say okay, if it's an apple iphone, you would say okay, this is an iPhone. If it's an Android device device, you would say this is an Android device. If it's a Samsung device, you

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

would say it's a Samsung device, you would identify the device. Now my question to you is when do you think that the term iPhone was coined? The term iPhone was coined the recent past. It was perhaps coined by the founder or the CEO of Apple. Steve Jobs perhaps was coined recently. But the first one who said that our family is flat was lamb was taught the names of

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

Every single thing to add to that wassalam work to be alive now. And if you were to show him an iPhone and ask him, What is this, he would be able to tell you that that is an iPhone. That is an iPhone. And not just that until the day of tm or whatever the new terms that may come up a new phone was launched last week, or perhaps a few days back known as pixel by Google, you were to show that phone to Adam Alisha Salaam and ask him. What is this? He would say how the pixel that is a pixel and giving you an example the client understand the gravity and the depth of this. And apart from that talk about languages, how do you become proficient in a language? How do you become proficient

00:30:36--> 00:31:15

in a language you have to build your vocabulary you need to know words when you know words, you can string those words, and you can speak well. There are many languages on the face of this earth. And at times, you wonder how on earth do these languages become so established? I have thought of it myself. You think about it to say today, you want to establish a language maybe you won't be able to do it during your lifetime. But say you're thinking you know what, if I start today, maybe down the line, 10 2030 4050 years, maybe my language may become established. Let's call the language gibberish. And you're thinking Let me start this language. Let me start with a few words. Perhaps

00:31:15--> 00:31:51

jumble alone means something who's going to listen to you? How are you going to make this language but think about English. Think about Mandarin Chinese, which is the most spoken language on the face of this earth. So many billions and billions of human beings know this language and how do they know what language even though the fact that they know the names of terms within that language. So you want to know Arabic you would have to know that if you look at something a pen, you would have to say this is column one, table mckibbon book keytab the mo terms you know, the more proficient you become in that language, the more it becomes easier for you to speak that language. The Miley salatu

00:31:51--> 00:32:26

salam was taught the names of everything. And apart from that we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala he created the pen first. And then he ordered the pen to write the pen asked Allah subhanho wa Taala What am I to write Allah azzawajal commanded the pen to write in regard to whatever is to occur until the day of Panama the fact that you and I were seated in this message, the relevance of mustard on this particular day at this particular time I'm wearing black, you're wearing white, you're wearing whatever you're wearing, was all decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. So Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing is hidden from

00:32:26--> 00:33:05

him. He knew that the iPhone would be launched, he knew that pixel would be launched, he knew that this particular war would take place. He knew that this event would take place this incident would take place everything has been recorded until the day of Korea until the day of them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala taught Adam alayhis salaam, the names of everything and then allies the region produced administers Islam in front of the angels and he said to the angels for calling me only a small Quantum sodality Give me the names of these things. If you are truthful, one's saying unto the angels and at that point, they said Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Glory be unto

00:33:05--> 00:33:49

you Allah, we have no knowledge whatsoever apart from that which you have taught us that which you have taught us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he honored he honored Adam alayhis salaam by teaching him and the last factor through which Allah has honored our father Adam alayhis salam was buying him commanding the angels to prostrate unto other maladies led to some final distinguishing factors to honor and raise the rank of Adam Allah his lead was set up. Moving on to the second wisdom as to why Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels to prostrate and to admonish that was Salaam. The second wisdom is to test the angels to test the angels themselves because when a lion is initially

00:33:49--> 00:34:08

announced the angels that I am going to place on Earth, a family for a creation that will succeed generation after generation. Immediately the angels responded asking Allah subhanho wa Taala Bon Jovi hammy CDFI ISKCON Bhima

00:34:09--> 00:34:26

one afternoon was sent via Hobi handicar one oh god this or like, well, ah, are you going to place a creation on earth that will cause corruption that will cause mischief that will shed blood? No, no, sir, before we handed we will glorify you we will praise you color in the

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

moon at that juncture, Allah subhanho wa Taala responded to them by saying, indeed I know that which you do not know. So to test the engines, this was a test where the angels passed with flying colors. There was just one individual who flunked and failed this test. We're coming to that in a long time. The next wisdom is that Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels to prostrate and to administer to Samarra. This command was issued to bring out whatever was within the heart of a police to bring out whatever

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

was negative within the heart of a police. Now loss of Hannah mozzarella, it is not hidden from him. Nothing is hidden from Allah azza wa jal, Allah knew that he believes would not prostrate and to add Malaysia to Islam, you need to understand the knowledge of Abbas, Hannah Montana, there's nothing hidden from Allah subhanho wa Taala. There's not a dry leaf that falls far away in the jungles of Africa except that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows about that dry leaf. And that dry leaf fell because of the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is not a tiny black ant on a dark surface that close in the middle of the night, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows about the tiny footsteps of

00:35:39--> 00:35:53

that tiny and this is the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala he knows what is in the past, he knows what is in the present, he knows what is in the future, nothing is hidden from Eliza budget, he knows that which exists, he knows that which does not exist. And he also knows

00:35:54--> 00:36:35

that if something that does not exist, if it weren't exist, how it would exist, everything is known but Allah subhanho wa Taala so he's the head of who in Thailand knew that other in the sense he believes would not prostrate and to acknowledge that was Salaam. But Allah azza wa jal is so just is so fair, that he will never ever take an individual into account except through that individual's actions. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will not take a beliefs into account just because Allah knows that he believes will not prostrate and to admonish that person and he would first have to go through the test. And he had the choice at that point, the choice was given to him. Remember, we

00:36:35--> 00:37:11

have a choice between choosing what is right and what is good. Don't think that you are forced to do things you're not focused, like Ravi and primarily there is no compulsion in the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And apart from that, there have been groups that have gone astray sects that have gone astray by misunderstanding the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. those groups they went on to state that if we do a sin, we cannot be held accountable because we are merely puppets. If the color of Allah decrease it, so be it, it happens so and so goes and robs a bank. He says, I cannot be held accountable. It was a quarter of a law that made me Rabobank, there was once a thief

00:37:12--> 00:37:47

was caught during the time of the long line. And our model, the long line was about to meet the punishment upon that individual, the individual, he looks at the alarm and he says Yama, you can't take me to account in this regard. You cannot punish me, you cannot punish me because it was the father of Allah that I stole Amaro, the last one who looked at him very calmly and said, Don't worry, my brother, I'm punishing you because it is the father of Allah that I should punish. It is the father of Allah that I should punish and that is why you are being punished. So wrong understandings of the father of Allah can make an individual go astray. And this is why Rahim Allah

00:37:47--> 00:38:25

is recorded rep said that discussions in regard to the father of Allah is like traversing across a deep and wast ocean, a deep and vast ocean. And at times, this ocean can have no shows whatsoever. The only way that you can ever think of practicing or crossing this ocean is upon the ship of salvation, ie the Quran and the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If you try to understand the Quran and the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you will not go astray. But if you try to apply your reasoning, if you try to apply your own logic, then upon will seize that opportunity to lead you astray May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all from his nest, I mean.

00:38:27--> 00:39:04

So coming back to the wisdom, this was a test put forth to the angels to see how they fare in that test. And they passed the test with flying colors, and was also to bring out whatever was in the heart of a beliefs. Now another discussion comes up and very briefly, I'll touch on it and we'll try to wrap off in Charlotte and Tyler in LA. He believes Allah mentions in the eye in liabilities and this is one of the reasons why it's such a challenge to try and discuss the CF during Juma sermons because we don't have time. The words or last words are so profound that each time a diver goes in he comes out with pearls. He comes out with beautiful jewels of wisdoms canon law in law, he

00:39:04--> 00:39:43

believes Now this particular part of the law states, they all prostrated except for a belief except for a belief. Now, you might wonder what was the police doing there in the first place? What was the police doing with the angels in the first place? And then comes about the question was the police from the gin was at least from the angels was a police perhaps a hybrid, an angel and aging? All these questions come about and we have varying opinions. We have one opinion that clearly states because the eye itself right after that Allah says as a doula he believes he can I mean, Elgin, he was from the jinn. Allah seals off the discussion by saying he believes was never from the angels.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

He was always from the jinn. But there have been scholars, like I said, who considered he believes to be a hybrid hybrid in the sense, they consider him to be from the angels and that's because he was with the angels at that point. And they went on to say he may have been from the age

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

But he was from a group of the angels known as Jin, they are named or that group was known as jinn. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala in this in the ayah. He states kind of mean a jinn. He was from the jinn, but not the jinn that you and I are familiar with. We're not familiar we don't have friends with the jinn but i'm saying is the jinn in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, not that Jin berada. They say there was a group of angels known as the jinn and Shere Khan, he believes was from that tribe or from that group, and that's why he was with the angels at that point. But the more favorable opinion in this regard is that my dear brothers in

00:40:34--> 00:41:19

Islam is that before the appointment of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Gina used to go up to the heavens, it was a lab it was permitted as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in Surah, Jin Wen Messner, sama have a vagina homily at Kairos and shadow, Masha, the the gym would go up to the heavens, and they would eavesdrop on the conversations of the angels. And they would come down and share that information with suit says with fortune tellers, they would do that. But then the ayah goes on to state that now, if we were to go up now, and yet Gina, who she had about rassada, now if the Gina they try to go up to the heavens, they are driven

00:41:19--> 00:41:58

away with stars, and you see shooting stars that drive away that you know, so now they're not permitted to go up to the heavens, but in the past, they would go up to the heavens, and likewise, he believes this particular individual and according to certain Maury hoons, that historians his name at that time was Isaiah z. His name was Isaiah zeal, he would go up to the heavens and he would mingle with the angels. And at that juncture, when Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels to prostrate unto Adam alysha to Salaam, he believes was with them, he believes was with the angels at that particular juncture. And the angels all complied. They all obeyed, but a police refuse to

00:41:58--> 00:42:39

prostrate unto other Mali salat wa salam. He became proud he became arrogant and he looked at himself he consider that I am made out of fire. Why should I prostrate unto a lowly weakling that has been cleared out of clay? And he said, and I mean, holla kutani mean Navajo Lakota woman when you have created me out of fire and you have created him out of clay, why should I prostrate unto him, he became arrogant, he became proud, he became jealous he compared himself he was the first individual to compare today you have people, bigoted people who compare themselves they consider themselves fair skinned, and they compare themselves and they put themselves superior over dark

00:42:39--> 00:43:17

skinned individuals. And they think that they are superior because of their color they compare today. Yes, may Allah save us from such a bigoted thought. But chevonne was the first individual to compare. He compared himself with other militia to Islam. There was jealousy, there was enemity he compared himself and he said, I am better than him. That's why I shouldn't prostrate unto him. Why should I prostrate unto him he was proud. And that was the reason as to why he was chased away he was rejected, he was cursed, and even he never acknowledged his mistake. He went on to blame Allah subhanho wa Taala. He went on to blame the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's a lengthy long

00:43:17--> 00:43:28

story. And he went on to challenge a lie as the result. He went on to say that I will mislead as many of the children of Adam as possible, and that's why I like this idea he asks us

00:43:31--> 00:44:10

earlier, I mean, dooney knowing all of this, knowing this context, knowing this story, knowing the history of what happened, do you still take him and his offspring as your Alia Alia in the sense your protectors, your allies, your friends? Do you take chiffon and his project his offspring as your Alia as your friends as your protectors mean? dooney without taking me as your protector ally is asking us we know of the enemity between Siobhan and our father Adam, Alicia to Sam, we know what happened between them. We know how he whispered into the heart of our of our father.

00:44:11--> 00:44:26

We know until today that he is our nemesis, our sworn enemy every single day is plotting against us. He runs in our blood, he is hatching and plotting plans to make sure that we are misled. We should never ever fall for the traps of Chevron.

00:44:27--> 00:44:59

An intelligent believer is the one who studies the plots and snares of his enemy ship on and make sure that he never ever falls prey to those traps. And remember my dear brothers in Islam, Siobhan is a conniving, Sly and cunning individual with years and years and years of experience. He has so much of experience. If you were to take the CV of Shere Khan. It will clearly state that he has been here from before our father admonish not wassalam he saw our father

00:45:00--> 00:45:34

He has seen many, many, many, many, many generations of mankind. And he is here now and he will be there until the day of the AMA as per the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is the oldest individual living until this day, so just imagine how much of experience he must be having. Trust me, some people think that Chopin does not know Facebook. Chapin is a dinosaur. He doesn't know Snapchat, he doesn't know Instagram. I'm sure Siobhan has a Facebook account. He has an Instagram account. He has a Snapchat account because he's not how is he gonna make tracks for you and Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat and YouTube. He knows all that. He knows to code. He knows

00:45:34--> 00:46:10

programs, he knows websites, he knows all that day in and day out. He is studying how am I to mislead the children of Adam is if he is one barrel of monkeys, we need to be two barrels of monkeys not in the bad way but in a good way. So my dear brothers, we need to study the traps of Japan Be wary of the traps of Japan and move away from the traps of shavon we need to keep asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for protection from the traps of Shabbat and from sharpen himself. With that I conclude I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive all of our sins, to accept our good deeds, and to save us from the blocks and snares of the devil shall upon me Allah as it were just as how

00:46:10--> 00:46:17

unitrust and dismissed it may unite us in the gardens of a beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I mean, I feel that way until hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen
