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

You know, the sun is a magnificent creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you'll find that a las panatela swears by the sun with some sort of the shrimps and you know, in order to bestow a greater appreciation for this gift that Allah subhanaw taala has provided to us, you find that many religions in the past assigned special qualities to the sun. A lot of people worship the sun. In fact, historically speaking, the, the Pharaoh and his people, you know, from, from a theological perspective, they believe that the sun had special powers and they prayed to the sun. And you know, scientifically speaking, the sun is so massive that over a million Earths could fit inside the sun,

00:00:41--> 00:01:22

just from a pure space perspective. So Subhanallah it's a magnificent creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And we find it being mentioned many times in the app. And the last point I mentioned the sun, he mentioned the moon, he mentions the stars, and usually in that order, and it's beautiful that allies are dead, he says who will lead the Jalla Shamsa Leah and will come around Nora, that Allah subhanho wa Taala made the sun Leah and the moon north. And the difference between Leah and Nord is that Leah is something that provides both heat and light. So it's like the candle the fire, right? It provides both heat and light. Whereas the moon, you know, obviously would offer just the

00:01:22--> 00:01:35

beneficial part of the light of the light, which is lighting up the darkness and so on so forth. And so How will anyone that's been in the desert, when there are no lights, you know, the moon actually provides a significant amount of light. And you know,

00:01:37--> 00:02:14

knocking Allah to Allah He says, If you notice, as a law describes the hypocrites on the Day of Judgment, he describes them benefiting from the delight of this world, Allah Allah, Allah who they have Allahu venuti him. So they benefit from the light of Islam in this world by portraying themselves as Muslim and so on so forth. And Allah mentions the word Leah. But Allah says that have Allahu be naughty him a lot takes away only the light part of it, and he leaves the heat for them. So they would suffer from it on the Day of Judgment. Whereas in this world, they would only benefit from the light of it, and they wouldn't be punished or burned by the heat. So Allah subhanho wa

00:02:14--> 00:02:50

Taala is very precise in the way that he describes these things. And again, Allah swears by the sun, he swears by the moon, Allah swears by the stars, and there are various states, and particularly to the Arabs, the stars were used for guidance and travel, they were used for many different things. And you find with Ibrahim alayhis salam, as Ibrahim argued with his people, and a lot of times we see the shots where Ibrahim is arguing with his people. And we would think that he actually believes the things that he's saying. So when he sees LKL cub, when he sees a laptop, and when he seems when he sees a shrimps, when he sees the stars, he sees the moon, he sees the sun. What does he keep on

00:02:50--> 00:03:29

saying he says, has Arabi that must be my Lord. Right? And you know, he starts worshiping it. And then all of a sudden, the stars go away, all of a sudden, the moon goes away, all of a sudden the sun goes away and Ibrahim it Islam every time he expresses that maybe this is my Lord, his people who are you know, disbelievers, and worship idols, they're getting excited that he's worshipping all of these different things. But Ibrahim alayhis salaam keeps using the disappearance of those various objects to show that this is a proof that these are not from these are not God themselves. They are not gods themselves, but rather, they are clearly on a course from the one who does control them

00:03:29--> 00:04:05

from the Creator Himself. They're running a course. So how could they be gods? How could they be, you know, divine in that regard. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, as he's as he's looking to his people, it says, well, that must be my Lord. You know, the sun is bigger than the moon, and so on, so forth. But again, as they continue to fade away about him, it is Salaam, he uses it as a proof against his people, that all of these things are on a course that's been decreed from their Creator. And you'll also find that with the sun, the moon, the stars, you have a lot of superstitions, and even very rational human beings will have these very strange superstitions, you know, we're naturally you

00:04:05--> 00:04:39

know, we naturally like to put our logic aside when it comes to superstitious things, especially when they're in our favor, or they give us a reason for our paranoia. So you have, you know, reading the stars, and, you know, the horoscopes and all those types of things, which make absolutely no sense but you know, what they give people either hope that's not really there and an illusion of hope, or they give people a reason for paranoia. So people like to hang on to them. And that's why the prophets lie Selim, you know, condemned the usage of the use of horoscopes and all these types of things, where we start to we start to put our trust in fortune tellers, and so on so forth. We

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

also see that when it comes to the sun, and the moon, you know, when the prophets lie, Selim lost his son Ibrahim,

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

also lost my son was very grieved by it. And some of the Sahaba they noticed that the sun in the moon Eclipse that there was a lunar eclipse on the same night that the son of the Prophet slicin

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

And passed away. And so some of them started to say, well, this eclipse happened because of the death of the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. now realize that the prophets lie Selim is pretty busy right now, you know, dealing with the grief of losing his son, but the prophets lie Selim, he taught the Sahaba as he did when the wind would blow harder. He went to the masjid and he led solar, the solar the eclipse prayer, to show them how to pray when they see again, you know, nature in an unusual form and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said ashampoo will come up that verily the sun and the moon are i a tournament a Atilla? They're only signs from Allah subhanaw taala they are signs

00:05:39--> 00:06:17

from the signs of Allah subhanaw taala they do not Eclipse for the birth of anyone or Eclipse for the death of anyone. Right? So instead when these types of things happen, call upon Allah subhana wa tada and ask him for safety and asked him for comfort. Right? So that's how the profits lifetime is doing away with the superstitions and the prophets. I send him he also says, On the day of judgment that these magnificent create that these magnificent creations he says, as chumps will come up, Boko Iranian will clamor that they would lose their light, can you imagine the sun and the moon would be completely devoid of light deprived of light, as the Day of Judgment is established? Now what's

00:06:17--> 00:06:56

what's interesting about this, if you look at the sun, as it exists today, Allah subhana wa tada is in control, full control, obviously, of this massive creature. And perhaps, that this massive creation Perhaps that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to mention the sun of the sun, the prostration of the sun, the prophets license chooses to mention the prostration of the sun, because even that massive creature that some people actually worship that massive creation, it's also an obedience to Allah subhanaw taala notice how different parts of the earth absorb the heat of the sun in different ways. Likewise, on the day of judgment, so some, you know, different surfaces expand

00:06:56--> 00:07:32

some contracts, some become more more heated, some are immune to a teat. Likewise, on the day of judgment when the prophets lysozyme said the sun would be brought so near to us, that it you know, you could reach out and you could touch it. Right. And you know, who knows how far you know, scientifically you have all these theories about how far the sun is away from us now, but certainly it's not that close. I mean, imagine reaching out and being able to touch the sun. But even then, the prophets lie Selim, he said, different people would absorb it differently. Allah is fully in control of it. So some people would sweat up to their ankles, some would up to their knees, some up

00:07:32--> 00:08:04

to their waist. Some people would be drowning in their sweat and some people would be completely immune to it. So Subhana Allah just as in this world, Allah subhanho wa Taala call causes the sun to heat up different parts of the world at different times and allows different parts of it to absorb it in a certain way. Likewise, on the day of judgment, some people will be immune to it. Some people will absorb the heat differently. For some people, the sun will be hotter and so on, so forth. And we asked the last panel, that we are amongst those people that are not drowning in our sweat and those that are under his shade on the Day of Judgment.
