As a side note first one of the coolest things I studied today was the meaning of the word listen so I can't help myself but share that with you. Listen is the Arabic word for tongue also the Arabic word for language one of the words in Arabic for language, but its origin is very interesting. And listen Omar roof while Millson Bill Khasra Hallelujah I don't know who he is either debating you have no now Herman haidara Wedge I'm gonna look Mata Sadhguru look

00:00:27--> 00:01:07

at for either duckula server for 10 hour look ma for socket and hedger. What better your site you say you do not suffer. The word Lisanne comes from the word Millson. Millson is a trap that they used to build on top of a door when they put a giant rock on top. And they're hoping that a coyote or a lion or whatever else they put some meat on the door, it will come it'll be drawn towards the the meat. When it starts eating the meat and pulls on the rock falls on them killing the animal. That's how they used to set a trap for the animal. Okay, this is actually called a medicine. And the reason it's called a medicine isn't the origin of the word design is the idea of drawing

00:01:07--> 00:01:46

somebody in for the kill. In other words, language at its essence is supposed to be a means of conquering people with words to trap them with words to captivate, captivate them. It is as though the Arabs recognize that the most powerful language or the most powerful weapon at the disposal of at the disposal of a human being is actually language. If you realize that, then you realize that Allah azza wa jal gave us the most powerful weapon there is his own word. What can attract humanity more than the word of Allah itself, than the sound of the Quran itself be designed in Arabic and Naveen. So language is to be used carefully to draw people in. And killing doesn't mean destroying

00:01:46--> 00:02:22

people here, and actually means to conquer people to take over the hearts and minds of people with good words. Because you know, like the Arab says, and NASA we do the exam, people are enslaved to goodness, a good kind word can actually own you can own somebody's heart with a good kind word, you could do that. And so that's kind of a side note on the meanings of the word, listen. But now let's go back when Allah says, didn't we furnish them two eyes? What's the purpose of saying two eyes? It's not just generically, Allah has given us the gift of two eyes. Yes, he has also two hands, also two feet, etc, etc. Why is he highlighting eyes? What's the benefit of eyes? Seeing? What did he

00:02:22--> 00:02:56

call on us to see already he called us honest to take a good look at the light land. This land, which he swore by it, he asked us to take a good look at the messenger who's being mistreated. Everybody can see with their eyes. He asked them to take a good look inside of themselves the history of this land. And I'm not sure Allah who I named, did we not furnish the human being with two arms? Don't you see who this is? Don't you recognize who this is? Can't you tell his character is different from everybody else's? You don't see that with your eyes? And if he says if you think he's saying nonsense, if you think what he's saying is a lie. Is Magic is poetry. It's It's a

00:02:56--> 00:03:36

conspiracy, whatever you think it is. You have a tongue? Why is it locked between your two lips? Why don't you have a response to this Quran? Why don't you have anything to say against it? Why is the Quran so capable of constantly silencing you to the point and this this is the point, the Quraysh prided themselves over their speech, you know that right? They prided themselves over language. And when they oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they could have because the Prophet he didn't bring an army with him. Rasul Allah did not bring Salam, salam, he didn't bring an army. He didn't bring money. He didn't bring control. He just brought words. That's all he had is words. And

00:03:36--> 00:04:14

the best way to defeat words is what words? I mean, if he has words, we can just be or there's more of us. We can hold joint meetings and come up with better words and to the problem. Why would the Quraysh who have held the sanctity of this land? Who know on top of that, not only are they the custodians of the Cabal on top of that their tribal people, Arabs never attacked one of their own. They're willing to violate the sanctity of the Kaaba, for which they are known all over the land. They're willing to violate the constitution of their own tribe. And they're willing to spill blood of the prophets I saw them. But what they cannot do is which is supposed to be so much easier, just

00:04:14--> 00:04:44

come up with words. If you don't have to kill anybody, you don't have to do butter or hurt. Or if you don't have to do any of that. Just come up with words that silences the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that overcomes him that people say yeah, well Quran was pretty impressive, but this is this is something else. This is 2.0 baby. This this wins. Kale, you know, like you have some of the youth here know, they have those like, I don't even know what they're called. But they're like spitting matches against rappers rappers have spitting matches against each other. What do they call

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

a rap battle? Why not?

00:04:49--> 00:04:58

And they have they had those battles back in the day the shed battles they had rap battles back in the day. Quran is dropping out one after the other. Why don't you just respond?

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

The fact that

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

They couldn't respond the fact that their tongue which is so eloquent the tongue in Arabic is also an expression of eloquence that the tongue is contained within what they shove a day in. Despite the problem that they see, solve this problem open your mouth is actually again a compelling evidence from Allah azza wa jal that they themselves know they have no response. They know they got they got nothing, and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hey guys, you just watched a small clip of me explaining the Quran in depth as part of the deeper look series.
