How do I know Allah

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

is really there?

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

Yes, believe it or not this is an

00:00:13 --> 00:00:14

important question.

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

Every single Muslim out there should be able

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

to answer

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

this. How do we know Allah is there?

00:00:21 --> 00:00:24

We can't speak to him because we don't

00:00:24 --> 00:00:26

hear a voice in return. We can't touch

00:00:26 --> 00:00:28

him, we can't see him.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:31

So how do we know he's actually there

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

and Allah exists?

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

So in the Quran

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

there are dozens of Ayat that indicate and

00:00:38 --> 00:00:40

tell us Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is there.

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

Here's the first.

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

Allah

00:00:44 --> 00:00:46

in the second Surah Surat Al Baqarah

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

in the second verse Allah says

00:00:51 --> 00:00:55

In this book, there is absolutely no doubt

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

which human being on the face of this

00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

planet can make that claim.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

Who can author anything and say in this

00:01:03 --> 00:01:07

book it's absolutely perfect. So La Rui Bafi

00:01:07 --> 00:01:08

also mean perfection.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

Like there's nothing in the Quran that's going

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

to confuse you. There's nothing in the Quran

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

that contradicts itself. And yes, I know what

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

you're thinking, but I heard this debate. I

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

heard other people say there's contradictions

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

in aya. Some things don't make sense. Some

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

things aren't as clear. That is not a

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

problem with the Quran.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

That is a problem with us.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

We are the ones that may lack the

00:01:32 --> 00:01:32

understanding,

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

but the Quran itself

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

actually challenges mankind. So here's another way that

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

you know,

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

the author is not you and me. It's

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

not an actual human being. But this author

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

has to be something above and beyond, an

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

entity above and beyond.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:52

Because in the Quran, several places Allah

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

challenges

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

mankind

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

to make something similar to it.

00:01:57 --> 00:01:58

Who would do that?

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

Who would put such a challenge to mankind

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

and say look I've authored

00:02:03 --> 00:02:04

a book,

00:02:04 --> 00:02:07

here it is, I challenge the world to

00:02:07 --> 00:02:10

author something similar to it or better. Because

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

this book, there's no doubt in it, it's

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

absolutely

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

perfect.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

No human being can make such a claim.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:20

But the Quran at the very beginning starts

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

to speak to you, starts to reinforce

00:02:22 --> 00:02:25

that this Quran is not from the Prophet

00:02:25 --> 00:02:28

alaihis salatu wasalam but something beyond.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

So that's the first thing. It's just the

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

existence of the Quran and the way the

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

Quran is structured.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

Number 2, the Ayat of Allah.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

The complexity

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

in Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's creation. So what

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

do I mean by that?

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

Take some time if you haven't done this

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

and just watch an animal documentary

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

of any animal. It could be on insects,

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

the ants, the ladybug.

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

Watch a documentary on sea creatures

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

and you'll notice right away

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

just how complex

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

the animal kingdom truly is.

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

Right now it's said that we've only explored

00:03:04 --> 00:03:07

maybe 2 to 3 percent of ocean life

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

on the planet. Think about that.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

Millions of creatures

00:03:11 --> 00:03:14

have been found floating and living

00:03:14 --> 00:03:17

in oceans across the world, but that's only

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18

been

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

2 to 3%.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

So there is life deep within our oceans

00:03:24 --> 00:03:27

we've never seen, we don't even know exist.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

So the fact that that level of complexity

00:03:31 --> 00:03:32

in the animal kingdom,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

think about how animals live, how they survive,

00:03:35 --> 00:03:38

how they live amongst each other, the communities

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

that they live in, the habitat in which

00:03:40 --> 00:03:43

they live in, all of that it synchronizes

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

to perfection.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:48

So the animal kingdom in general is a

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

great way for you to know

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

there has to be an entity above and

00:03:52 --> 00:03:55

beyond that controls all of this, that designs

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

all of this. And the last and final,

00:03:57 --> 00:04:01

Ayah. Amongst many ayah that proves Allah's existence,

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

just look in the mirror.

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

Look at the human body.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

The human body, and look at how complicated,

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

how precise,

00:04:11 --> 00:04:12

how every

00:04:12 --> 00:04:16

single cell and every single part of our

00:04:16 --> 00:04:20

entire structure is so meticulous and so perfect.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

If you literally remove one part of your

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

body, it affects the entire function. If you

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

have a headache, if you get sick, it

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

affects your ability to perform. It affects your

00:04:30 --> 00:04:33

ability for the entire day. Something so simple,

00:04:34 --> 00:04:37

something that goes off just the slightest bit.

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

How does this happen?

00:04:39 --> 00:04:42

We can't even repair it. We can't

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

do something to our bodies that stops it

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

from aging, that stops it from becoming weak,

00:04:47 --> 00:04:49

that stops it from becoming sick.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:53

So when you put this entire package together,

00:04:53 --> 00:04:56

you realize that the heart is dependent on

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

something else for it to continue beating.

00:04:59 --> 00:05:02

When somebody's heart stops they pass away. We

00:05:02 --> 00:05:03

can't stop that process.

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

We would want our loved ones to be

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

with us forever,

00:05:07 --> 00:05:10

but that process comes to an end which

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

common sense will tell us

00:05:12 --> 00:05:15

something else is in charge here

00:05:15 --> 00:05:17

because I have no control

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

over myself.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

I may think that I do but I

00:05:23 --> 00:05:24

really don't.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:26

These are just some of the things brothers

00:05:26 --> 00:05:28

and sisters for you to think about. There

00:05:28 --> 00:05:32

are literally dozens upon dozens of ways

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

that we can see and know that Allah

00:05:34 --> 00:05:37

subhanahu wa ta'ala is really there. And so

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

I guess the last thing I'll leave you

00:05:39 --> 00:05:40

with is this,

00:05:40 --> 00:05:43

the people who have a connection with Allah,

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

you and me, the people who strive to

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

pray and worship a creator,

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

does this make sense if I say to

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

you,

00:05:51 --> 00:05:54

we just know he's there. You just know

00:05:54 --> 00:05:54

it.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:58

That's what iman that's what true iman does.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

It puts you in a place where you're

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

convinced,

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

you're confident and you know a 100%

00:06:04 --> 00:06:07

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is out there. Some

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

things we just can't explain.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

This perhaps could be part of that conversation

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

but I hope these few points insha'Allah

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

can reemphasize and reinforce.

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

Feel confident,

00:06:18 --> 00:06:22

feel positive and know with certainty Allah subhanahu

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

wa ta'ala is there. May Allah

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

keep us close to him. Allahummen.
