This there is a question
that is very, very
And he can hardly find a clear answer to this question across history. Even if you go to the Greeks,
the Christian theology
across the history of mankind.
But surprisingly, the Koran has a very simple, clear and straightforward answer to this question.
What's that question?
I'm sure that you all have heard this many times.
Not only from non Muslims, but also from some Muslims.
And the question is,
if Allah subhana wa Taala knows everything,
and he controls everything. And he knows that I will make a mistake or I will commit a sin.
Why then it is my fault.
We always ask this question, especially the teenagers and the university students, they come to me with this question a lot.
Allah knows what I will do before I do it. And it has been written.
So this entire question of the cutter predestination
and soprano law, we read the story of Adam and the Quran many times
and there is a very simple and clear answer in the story of Adam, which I'm gonna share with you today inshallah.
But before I do this, you will be amazed
to know that in the Christian theology, the reason Adam alayhis salam was on earth
because he disobeyed Allah so he was kicked out of jinn.
And they always blame eel, and they derive the word evil from Eve.
But we don't do the same in the Quran. In fact, the Quran tells us that both Adam and Eve took responsibility for that.
And who was the main culprit behind it? It was a blease. Allahu Allah, Allah tala.
As we'll see in the story in Sharla.
And this is why Allah subhana wa Taala
said in this story when you read from Isaiah number 30, all the way to 40 in Surat Al Baqarah. It starts with the story. When Allah subhana wa Taala was making an announcement to the angels.
But down the road in the story, Allah subhanho wa Taala said as a lahoma shaitan ohana.
So shaitan caused both of them
as Allahumma that's in the Arabic language school. Do you both of them. Allah caused both of them to slip out of Jin
Raja Houma both of them too. So both of them, you know were sent down from Genoa to the earth.
But let's start the story from the beginning.
A loss of
so number two
Allah subhanaw taala made an announcement to the angels. He said I will create a halifa and I will delay the translation of the word the Khalifa because you have lots of missed up translation out there.
Some people say viceroy vice German representative of Allah tala lo and dedicado one Kabira no one in earth represents Allah.
So Allah subhanaw taala string the angels I will create a Khalifa What did he say? Phil? Phil Jenna. So before the creation of Adam alayhis, salam, Allah subhanaw taala is making an announcement to the angels before he created either. So Adam was supposed to live on Earth.
That was a decree from Allah subhana wa Taala.
In the journal genetic halifa know he will be on earth
and the word halifa and the Arabic language, according to the language,
kind of is the difference of
some of our predecessors, those who will be for us, my father is a self to me, I am to my father,
the son of the Sahaba right, because they came before us, we are the head of we came after them.
So Khalifa means there will be a generation after one man who was the beginning of creation.
A generation that will follow a generation after Adam and Islam the beginning of creation,
that is Khalifa.
Also the word Khalifa might stem from the fact that there was someone before you own Earth, and you came and you replace them.
And this is gonna come next. When we listen to that reaction of the angels. Well, I made the announcement. I will create a Khalifa and my mistranslation is Khalifa is a trustee on Earth. Allah subhana wa Taala created someone and he gave him a manner to give him a trust. And this is from the Quran.
while all the while Jeeva
will allow us to give the Amana that responsibility, that free will to make your own choices and be responsible for your choices. It's only men and jinn who accepted that Amana.
So the answer and the reaction of the angels they said
my use it was Dima Yama, you will create
someone on earth who and shouldn't love and spread corruption.
How did the answer's no.
Where did they come with this assumption?
What is the origin of that?
mess but the love
and death of silver tabari says that there were jinn before us living on earth and they spin corruption. And they also cause bloodshed because they were fighting amongst each other.
So based on that, that's one tafsir another tafsir said Allah subhanho wa Taala
told the angels and he talked to them about that but it's not mentioned in the Quran.
Why? Because Allah subhana wa tada said
they never say anything out of their own wounds of desires. It is something that a lot told him before.
whatever the reason is, but so panela look today.
Go back to the history suppiler even after the story of madam right away a lot of talks about money
right away. They spread
corruption on Earth. The answer is yes.
They should? The answer is yes.
Right after the story of Adam,
but they did. And take it from there until today, across history
are people abusing their power until this moment?
Are they spitting corruption?
Are they causing bloodshed.
But Subhanallah, we're going to know that even now, the people do this today, out of greed
for money, and power.
But what was the first crime committed on earth?
We'll see at least now he's gonna teach us.
It was not just the greed, for money or power, it was pride.
It was arrogance. And this is why the prophet SAW Selim said, like,
men can be misconstrued
no one will make it to gentlemen. If they have an attitude
of arrogance, or pride in their hearts, and some people today, they they even feel proud that they are
having that disease, which is called arrogance or pride.
So going back,
the angel said, Yeah, Allah, why would we do this?
But Allah Subhana Allah said to them directly said, I know that what you don't know.
And Allah subhanaw taala gave him the lesson.
Last month, I said,
Allah subhanaw taala told him the names of everything.
And by the way, this was not the product, the point, the names of everything around him. Knowledge is very important. ignorance and arrogance, are the two fatal mistakes that we have to fight today.
So because it bleeds was ignorant, and he has,
this is why he ended up doing what he did.
So Allah Subhana, Allah says,
Allah, so Allah subhanaw taala told Adam, the names of everything.
Okay, now, you're challenging? No, they were not challenging a lot when they ask you the question, by the way, they were just asking, they wanted to learn the wisdom
because of what they knew before.
So I wanted to teach them the lesson, I'm gonna answer a question, why am I creating them? And also them to say the names of things around them, but they didn't know Allah didn't give them that knowledge?
We don't know anything except that what she taught us.
Now, Adam, teach them.
Tell them the names of everything. What does that mean?
Allah knows the potential of human beings, that when we have knowledge, and we take it to the heart, and we know the right knowledge, we will be enlightened, and it will have riots, and we guide people to gender by the end of the day. But if we are ignorant, and arrogant, we're misguided. And we're guiding people nowhere.
And this is why
many boomers, many nations, they took that knowledge.
And they took the advanced sciences today, including technology and weapons. And what do they do with that? They spread
and they should plot on Earth.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if people do this across the history of mankind, you don't move Mohammed
you are kept to the end of the time. Couldn't
number three is number 110.
as if I was saved you to the end of time.
Now What's your job?
What is this today? You enjoy what's right, what's wrong? Can you stop What's wrong? What we're supposed to be believers, but as if Allah is saying, Do not be happy with your level of Eman you have to look up to
increase that level of demand because a man goes up and down, it goes up by acts of righteous deeds. It goes down by disobeying Allah Subhana Allah
so Allah subhanaw taala said, What an honor and in mukha and you stop What's wrong? What Amina Bella Amara Giovanni used to say
if you want to be the
family it Be sure to apply these three conditions in join what's right, stop what's wrong and increase your Eman
And that can never done can never be done. Except by seeking knowledge and acting upon that knowledge. Many of us claim that a handler we are believers, but Allah didn't say Latina
Allah never said those who believe and talk those who believe in argue Allah says Allah Vina Iman, oh, well, I'm in a solid head, show me You're a man by doing righteous deeds. That's what the plan is all about.
Allah subhana wa Taala is telling us a lot through the story of Adam.
So let's move forward to the story of Adam.
I'll give you an analogy. I'll give you an example. Allah, Spanish Allah.
In the Quran, he uses examples and parables
to make it easy for people to understand things.
that somebody works in a company. And he starts from the very beginning, as a receptionist,
somebody who does the low job, he makes tea, he drives the car for his boss. And then after that,
he gets promoted. He went to school, studied and gets promoted, until he became the Vice President of that company.
And now all of a sudden, there's nobody on top of him, except the president. And the President comes one day walks in with a 15 year old boy.
And he calls that vice president. And he gives him this announcement. He say, hey, you're the vice president. He said, yes, you should go and make tea for the new Vice President, this 15 year old boy, what will be the reaction of that vice president who has been serving in the company for 30 years?
He has so much experience. And he's so close to the president.
He would be mad, you'd say, Who is this young kid? Who's gonna be the new vice president? What knowledge?
What experience does he have? How can you compare him to me?
Does he have a logical complaint? Yes. I'm not talking about a vice president.
I'm talking about a police.
He was so close to Allah subhanaw taala before he disobeyed Allah, in fact, in the Quran all the time. He's always mentioned in the Quran, in the company of angels.
How many times
would you make an exception they all presented themselves, except he believes he was in the company of angels, and the books of Tafseer. They say he was so obedient. And he was so close to Allah Subhana, WA Tada.
And all of a sudden, Allah subhanaw taala is saying to him, I'm going to create
a human being called Adam. And when I create him, when I breathe out of my spirit in him, you make suit for him. It's like, what
was your complaint by a police? It's understandable, but we'll come back to this later on.
Now, I'll give you another analogy.
Imagine you work for a company for a long time.
all of a sudden, there's an email circulated and it's sent to everyone in the company, except you that you will be transferred to somewhere very, very far.
Something you have never expected. Everyone in the company knows that you would be transferred. And you're the last one you didn't even know.
And all of
Sudden, one day you come to work, and you're only late for five minutes.
And then your boss calls you come here,
you're late for five minutes. And based on that
you will be transferred.
And you will go to a very far place. It's not the same where you are now sort of as comfortable as the one that you are in now. Again, I'm not talking about somebody who works in a company. I'm talking about Adam malice, Allah.
Allah subhana wa Taala decided before the creation of Adam.
Even before Adam was created, yes, he was talking Jana. But his job is going to be in dunya. It's on Earth.
So could Adam have a legitimate and logical complaint? Like a police?
In fact, if anyone has the right to say, the question that I started with this football, it would be either Melissa,
you decided before my creation.
So whether I ate from the tree or not,
when I was late, why? Because a police stopped him.
police stopped him.
And he told him
Allah only stopped you from eating from that tree only for two reasons.
The only way you can have permanent residence in Ghana is if you're a man or if you're an angel, but you're not.
The other option is
if you want to have permanent residence Jinjin you need to eat from that tree.
This is why Allah forbade you.
So those five minutes Adam was late. So when he came back, he listened to the whisper of a police and he obeyed a breeze and he disobeyed Allah subhana wa Tada. So if anyone on Earth has the right, to make that statement,
if you know everything, if you control everything, if you have written before the creation of the heavens and the earth 50,000 years, that I will be in gentlemen, and I will eat from the tree, and I will go to Earth.
What's the trap?
What did you do this to me Allah. But Adam choose not to say that. And I've accepted the color of Allah. And that's the big difference. And that's the conclusion of this football. That's the big difference between a believer and between Adam.
What's the difference?
Let me tell you something in Christian theology again.
Adam was sent to Earth as a punishment and humiliation. But we Muslims don't believe in that. We believe that Allah created Adam to live on earth and to be a halifa.
So when Adam was sent to Earth, a lot of us in South America the same stories, sort of birthright number 38.
Down to Earth.
Same idea. No, no, and I'm not sending you as a punishment. That's your job. I created you for this. And life for you on earth is a test and they will come to you guidance. If you follow my guidance. There will be no fear and no sadness.
Because you will end up going back you started in January. That's home, you go back home, you go back to jail.
But who was killed
as a punishment and humiliation.
It was a police. He was humiliated by being kicked out of Gen Y. And that's the main message today.
That's the difference between Adam and Emily's brothers and sisters. Adam choose to take responsibility for his mistake.
But a police wanted to blame someone else.
And that's exactly what happens today. When we make mistakes
thinks we don't take responsibility and we want always to blame it on
you know this, you don't gonna do this. Did Allah force you to do it?
They will not give you a free will. Did you make the choice? How can you blame allow replay please go back to my last football. A lot told you
give your excuses of like I
at least told you in the last week as I told you and I number 20 told him
have no authority over you, except that I whispered into your ears. And he listened to me.
Don't blame me blame yourselves.
But he's gonna give this football hellfire. But in the dunya What did he say to Allah? When Allah told him?
He said in social RF, so number seven and number 12.
What Allah told him, why don't you make sure to the one that I created
Work on that. If you have a lot of arrogance, if you have a lot of pride in your heart, you will never make it to jungler that's the first crime on earth by a police. He says I'm better than him. Mr ablaze. Why are you arrogant? Is it something that you earned? Or it was something that was given to you by Allah
so even being out of them for something given to you by Allah, it's not you, you can achieve nothing without Allah. The same thing for you and me. Whatever you have, as a power, authority, knowledge, money, status, it's from Allah.
Why should you think highly of yourself, humble yourself. The best man on this earth was the most humble one walking on Earth.
So that's the difference between Adam and a please. So when you take responsibility you are imitating.
When you refuse to take responsibility, you're imitating a police.
He said I'm better than him. You created me from fire He created him from dirt.
But Adam was sin on Earth, not as humiliation or punishment as the Christians believe. We believe that Adam was sent to Earth.
Again, Allah gave him the trust. And this the continuation of Adam and we're supposed to be the best. This is why Allah subhana wa Taala trusted us with this. Go to Surat Al Baqarah ayah, one for three, the middle. The I are right in the middle of the surah. The surah is 286 is this is right in the middle. That's what the likes picks from us. We should go back and imitate Adam and take responsibility. Allah subhanaw taala said
we have made you
in the middle. When people assume either extreme, you'll always be the home of moderation.
hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala ala Dena Stouffer
Mohammedan Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
I'm about to head back to
the Kuru kuhmo, the corona FC beta Paula has no gel and I will keep reminding everyone who is inside the masjid, inside any of the rooms or anybody outside the masjid. If you are talking now, not listening to the hood by you have no code but you have to respect the house of Allah. And if you talk during the goodbyes, you have no Juma. You better do the door after that. So we have to respect the house of Allah. When the man starts the goodbye have to sit down and listen to the hotbar.
Now let me conclude with the following
I'll give you another analogy.
if somebody were to come and slap you in the face right now,
would you get angry? The answer is yes.
If you're driving your car, and somebody comes towards you enhance your car on purpose, would you get angry? Of course, yes. But what if that person comes to you and say, brother, I'm sorry, I slapped you. It's the color of Allah. Allah predestinated. This, you have to accept it.
Or that person who comes to you hits your car on purpose comes to you and say, brother,
Allah, Masha, Allah stated this, that I will come in sha Allah today on purpose and hit your car, you have to accept the color of Allah. What do you take that? would you ask that person to take responsibility for doing what he has done with his own free choice? brothers and sisters? Let's stop doing this. Let's stop blaming shaitan Let's stop blaming Allah. Let's take responsibility because Adam did a beast didn't. How did Adam take responsibility? Go to Surah number seven, and number 23.
Adam and Eve Subhan Allah, they call her Eve in English and they drove evil from Eve. But we call her However, because she thought I'd
look at the difference. So today, even some Muslims, they think about a woman because they are influenced by the Christian theology, that it was Eve who was the reason for them to be kicked out of gender. In fact, they were discriminated by Allah that they will live on Earth. That's their job. So how did they assume responsibility source number seven source of RFI number 23.
Again, Allah saying both of them said both of them, both of them, or both of them, Adam?
Well, we all should say this every day. Because we do this every day. We all know ourselves, but we try to blame either the police or someone else. And sometimes Allah if Allah knows if I lost control is in control. Why did he allow me to do this? Yeah, Allah allowed you because you have a free will.
So number 18, that you should read every Friday to remind yourself and number 29.
Oh Mohammed say to them, the truth comes from your Master kermanshah for The Omen, you have the free will to believe woman.
You have the free will to this believe.
Allah does not take your hand and order you to take the money of someone does not force you to drive your car to a club and go and drink. It's your choice. And then you say, you know what, Allah has written this in the book.
No, don't ever try this game again. And study this story of Adam, it will teach you a lot. I'll conclude with this. A very good example in the Quran.
within social causes, and number 15 and 16.
Alas, petal is telling us the story of Moses, that he killed someone by mistake.
Allah said, for workers who Moosa kodali he punched him and the man died.
What did musala SLM say right away? Call
on right away, blame straight on. He said this is from the work of cipher. But hold on. That's a prophet is not like you and me. Continue the next day number 16.
He said, Robin near the Lambton FC, he took responsibility right away. Yes, it's shaitan who beautified that evil ad that I have done.
But right away he took responsibility said Robin.
Even though you're law I kill this man by mistake, but I take responsibility
with myself. When I'm fairly young Yama Forgive me for Allah. Allah forgive him.
That's what we need to do in our lives. Brothers and sisters. Stop
Finally excuses for your mistakes. And remember, the first and biggest sin ever committed on Earth was pride and arrogance. If Allah subhanaw taala has afflicted you with this, don't brag in front of people and say I have an ego. No.
Just take that away from your heart and try to work on yourself. That's an advice for me first, and for everyone, listen to me. May Allah subhanaw taala take all these diseases from our heart. May Allah take, you know, pride melasma atheletic hatred, may Allah subhanaw taala take hypocrisy milotic lying out of our hearts
when I even
when I made a lot of what I did, what I
mean, a lot
