Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat 34 of the magnificent Surah Al Baqarah.

Allah SWT honored Adam AS by commanding the angels to prostrate before him. All complied except for Iblees. Iblees had defied the commands of Allah SWT and thus had become one of the disbelievers. He tricked Adam AS and Hawwa AS to eat from the forbidden tree because he resented the fact that because of Prophet Adam AS, Iblees had become one of the disbelievers and was thrown out of Paradise. Adam AS committed the mistake of going against Allah SWT order and, as a result, they too were ordered to leave Paradise and live on earth for a temporary period. 

Iblees had disbelief, arrogance, and rebellion, all of which caused him to be expelled from the presence of Allah SWT and His Mercy. This is important and worth emphasizing because in all parts of life, religious or non-religious – Iblees will try to make us follow his example of disobeying Allah SWT out of arrogance against others. So we have to admit that we are weak slaves of Allah SWT who are always dependent upon Him, and there is no strength or power except Allah SWT.
