Nouman Ali Khan – Amazed By The Quran – The Hoopoe And The Sun-Worshippers

With great eloquence, the hoopoe in Surat An-Naml reports back to Prophet Suleiman about what he saw in Sheba and how the queen and her people were prostrating to the sun. This amazing bird gives a profound analysis of how the shaytan has beautified their rituals and prevented them from the correct path to the point where they will accept no guidance. We learn from this story that each of Allah’s creatures has its own language and that they record what human beings do. They are all witnesses to our actions, and just because they don’t speak comprehensibly to us now, doesn’t mean that they won’t do so on judgment day.
