So here, if we go by and take you back to the three swords that we're talking about and a specific level so try to make a link between the three sources in certain waukon
Allah subhana wa Taala
takes an oath
right before talking about something very important Allah said, fella
a movie mama
towards the end of certain karma. That's
Allah said, Allah is taking an oath buying the place, or the position where the stars used to be.
There are on sale? And indeed, it's a great off if you really know
what it was that revealed brothers and sisters, can you tell me?
More than 14 centuries ago.
Guess what, in astronomy? They discovered?
Why would Allah say fanatical, presumably marwari Museum what is the last day for a new job?
This is supposed to love astronomy. Only in the 20th century, they discovered that what you see up in the sky now we call them stars. These are not the stars, these stars left their place millions of years ago. This is only the place where there used to be more water and go to
the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam have a PhD in astronomy from autovalue.
How How did he know about this? Are these the words of Mohammed Salah?
No, these are the words of
so Panama. Why am I saying this? Right after this great person. And this Morocco. What is the law says after that Allah has given you an introduction again, to the people of Christ like listen, something important is coming in.
So allows me introduction towards to the miracle of all.
This has nothing stars, the position of the stars, but what is the most important marker.
If you don't have the forearm in your heart, if you don't understand the forearm, if you don't act upon the forearm, you missed the purpose of your creation. You will have no guidance.
You see what I'm saying? So when you study just you will find many also the beginning Allah subhanaw taala is treating the people of Christ they wouldn't listen to the problem. So Allah gives them an introduction. Do you see this? This is this is yes, yes. There are lots of mantella hits them with the message, the main message
is that clear.
What's the second main topic in solid?
So we talked about the greatest of the Quran, we made the link of that to Surat Al waka, at the end of social worker, and the beginnings of man, the greatness of the forearm. What's the second topic in Surah? Rahman. What did we talk about?
allows you to talk about some of his favors, right? Let's study what's the second to last topic in Surah. Al waka, you will be amazed. I'm going to share some ideas with you start from Isaiah 58.
is talking about
that sperm out of which we are created, when it meets with the egg, Allah said, that
is created by you or that is created by Allah.
So Allah is showing you his favours, and sort of talk about this a lot, right? But Allah also this is the symmetry between sort of man and Surat and what are the comes after it? If you move on the next day? 63 and 64, Allah Allah said, talking about the crops, the land that we cultivate a lot better said
Did you grow the crop? Or did we?
What does the farmer to Allah, Allah he does, he brings the seed that was created by Allah, the farmer, not even create the seed, he puts it underneath the solar he waits for the rain to come. And if the weather conditions change, what happens? If you have a drought? Would you have any crops? So losing control? Who is giving us all of this? Should we be grateful?
So go next, I add 68 and 69. After I
the water that is in the water down from the clouds? Or did we lost on him by himself? So plan on time?
Another example, go to 71 and 72. fri
You see the trees?
are in the trees green, look outside on the green? And then we cut them? And what do we do? We use them to lit fire.
So if you look what what makes the tree grow inside is what autumn suppiler love. And then you take it and you make fire with it. Think about this.
So lots of other saying, did you bring about the firewood that you use? Or did we?
So look at the symmetry between the two sources. second theme in sort of man, Allah will talk about his blessings. Second to last, you know, theme in salt. Allah is Allah remind us of his favor. subhanho wa Taala.
there's something very important to understand here.
You know, sometimes you go to a conference, right? Or you go to a hotel.
And if I were to ask you, what was the last thing? I'm going to give you a statement now, in Hamdulillah, no matter who want to stay, you know how many times this was the last statement that you remember, before you went to sleep
in the football.
This happened a lot.
One time a man came to me. I gave a football somewhere in a city.
And I was like, that was my first time to go there. Somebody came to me and he yelled at me after the FBI said
May Allah forgive you? I said, I mean and you too.
But he was smiling this way I was confused. He said, Man, you didn't give me a chance to sleep today in the homework.
You know, the last thing I always love to hear before I go to sleep in the machine Juma. I take my nap after in Alhamdulillah.
And then wake me up and tell us
is it today, I was sitting.
Every time I try to close my eyes, the next thing is coming, the next door is coming.
So sometimes you go to a conference, right? And you say, I'm going to listen to this lecture, what happens? You sit there for five minutes, and you say, you know, what? Would you like to go shopping in the bazaar? Why? Man, like, I don't understand anything. You know,
the speaker is jumping from one thing to another thing, and I can
can understand anything. Right? Is that clear? So what what do I want to say here?
If he wants to communicate your message, and be a good speaker, in it three elements, we're going to talk about the prana. Okay, you need what? three elements? What are they number one,
you need to have a content set again,
a great content. Now, number two, you have to have a great style
of delivery. Okay, how to communicate your message.
Number three, you have to have
a knowledge of your audience
should know to Who are you talking?
into Sir, I'm saying? Normally, if I'm invited to a speech, if I'm invited to a conference, I always ask the people who's going to be there?
What ethnicity What about the age groups, because I could prepare something for the elderly. And then I end up talking to the teenagers.
That will not click.
So knowing your audience is very important. Because sometimes you sit and talk to some crowd. And you can relate to everyone young, you know, youth an old but sometimes you sit in a gathering, you know, and you're supposed to be talking to children. And the children will be like, they're
they're restless, they're going to be running around if you don't capture their attention. This is why I always make the app for the teachers who teach kids may Allah take them to gender without reckoning. Say, I mean, it's not an easy job. May Allah take all mothers to gender without requiring because they have to deal with this monkeys at home? will love you and I cannot deal with them.
Right? Did I say something wrong?
Did I say monkeys? Are you upset? Correct me say angels, right? I should say angels, right? Yeah. Should I say monkeys are angels, the little angels? Just like luck. I thank you for correcting me, is that angels?
if you don't know your audience, you might be speaking and nobody's listening. Nobody's benefiting so so para la peran is the best content
and the best style. And the last part, Allah knows his audience.
And Allah knows his audience. So
when a Muslim Hannah with Thailand, and I'm going to stick I'm gonna go to sort of Othman now, says 31 times the editor mobilized
optical magic of the band. What is the audience here?
Are they the people of rice?
Aren't they the people who ask it for the moon to be split?
Are these people stubborn or stubborn?
So when you're talking to stubborn people, what do you do? Do you repeat?
Hello? Yeah, so repetition here,
is needed or needed.
So Allah knows his audience.
So he keeps reminding them, you know, when you raise a child until he becomes 25 or 30
and then he becomes ungrateful to you. It kills you.
So what are you doing your talk to him?
Didn't I buy
all your clothing?
Didn't I listen to me? I'm going to be repeating myself, right? Did I buy all your food?
Didn't I get you a place to live in? Didn't I pay for your tuition? i? Didn't I didn't I didn't I, what am I doing? I'm talking to somebody who's ungrateful.
Right? So if you have two children, one of them is grateful. Do you speak to him like that? You don't have to. But for the ungrateful one, you're going to repeat and say, you know, who would did this to you? Who did this to you? And all the answers will be? No one except you that no one except you that. So what was the what is the
He's talking to the stubborn people of ranch.
They asked for so many miracles. And he showed it to them.
Is it easy to split the moon?
And then Alaska brought it back together again.
So Allah through the purchasing for VA, after every time we will sell something.
Which of these blessings Do you deny?
So you see the repetition now, but the only difference here is I told you in sort of common when they denied Allah,
Allah subhanaw taala liken them to locusts. girardin when Tasha, but he resorts ramen, and Allah wants to establish the tool of the surah from the very beginning
of last of him as being a rough man. And all of these blessings are nothing but showing his mercy to us. So how come that he's shown his mercy to you, and you're showing gratitude to him?
Is that clear? This is the only difference. So is Allah angry in slaughter of man, but he's being angry as a raha man.
They have to remember this overtime. You know, it's not befitting that I'm showing you mercy and you show me gratitude, I show you mercy and you show me gratitude I gave you an you deny I gave you an you deny I gave you on you deny? Is that clear? That's the meaning and sort of man.
one, one more thing.
You know, if I were to ask you, what's the difference between the reaction of a human being and the reaction of an animal? Let's say we're all together in a building. And there are some humans and some animals. If the fire alarm goes off, what will the humans do?
What will the humans do?
They run away. What was the elements do?
Okay, can I ask you a question? CSRS?
Do humans have often?
And they can reason?
Do animals have often?
Let me repeat the question again.
Do animals have often?
He was the one saying yes. earlier. Okay. But I was like, No, no, I disagree with you. They have alcohol, but they can't reason.
Okay? That only is just distinctive, something like instinct in them. They don't want to be hurt, or they don't want to die, but they cannot reason like, you know, they cannot, like interact with something the way we do as humans. I'll give you an example. I'm going to prove to this person now that it is yes. Okay. But let's continue the same scene that we're talking about. If the fire alarm goes off in a building where humans and animals are there, the humans will run away, but the animals will wait until what until they see smoke or the fires coming close to them. And they can feel the heat once they feel the heat again.
That shows you that they have this harm coming you know having an apple I should stay away from this because what is the meaning of awesome Allah in the Arabic language means robata robata you know when you try something, that's Allah. Okay, this is why the process of MC to the vidual who came in front of the masjid, he left his camera and he said token to Allah. You know, I put my trust in Allah as if you're saying your love take care of my camel until I come out. What did you say to him? He said,
What sir Can I use your mind?
Literally it means tie your camel. But again, what's the further meaning was the deeper meaning use your arm.
Okay? Because if you don't tie your camel, you know, that camel will run away.
You can tie your camel, and maybe something will happen that will destroy the whole budget and the cameras on everyone. But this is something both applicable as well, you should do everything that Allah has given you within your means, then you put your trust in Allah, you know, those zombies will say hamdulillah I'm a Muslim, I don't have to do anything to say at home and inshallah, you know, allow it provides for me, brother go and have education, not hamdullah mom's family guide our ship was talking about in the past today.
Did you apply for a job? No, no, mega. And instead of like the snow or the rain in auto, we have lots of rain hamdulillah it's gonna rain dollars in the backyard, inshallah I'm gonna collect the dollars and I'm gonna be okay. Is this real?
Is it the same guy?
I think you're hungry, or angry. Anyway. So here's the question
of the bill as bad which is very important. And this is the difference between tawakkol and Taku. Taku you do everything that you can, then you depend on a lot of Allah to provide for you. For example, I have to give to get an education.
I have to prepare a resume. I have to apply. Then wait for an interview. Yes. Through the interview, Allah will send me that is
but not sleeping 16 hours and saying then.
I'm going out with my friends. Okay, go ahead. Enjoy.
stop, but what do you mean?
I'm going out? Yeah, go ahead.
But I need some.
How old are you?
what do you do in your life? I eat and sleep.
And like play video games?
Then I sleep again.
And then I eat and I play video games and then
I sleep again?
Is that your life?
That's not like that's not a life. Right?
And then you keep asking me for money. What about tomorrow? I think to get married and have your own house. Yeah.
No, allow it put on your money Dad, I'm going to take your money and shove it man.
What if I die tomorrow inshallah I'll take the money of my mother inshallah.
I mean, so as Muslims, what should we do? This is a laughable aspect, do what you need to do, then put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala. Is that clear? So
back to the analogy that I wanted to give you the difference between the apple of man and the appeal of the higher one is that can you just write today inshallah, you know, there is a bridge between Ottawa and Quebec, right? Just take a donkey, rent one from Toyota or, you know, or Mercedes, take a donkey or a column. Okay? And go to the bridge. Okay, while you're in the bridge, try to push the camel into the river and see what's gonna happen to you. First time is gonna push you back gently. Second time, is gonna try to push you back gently. Third time, he's gonna hold you from the arm and throw you in the river.
What is happening here?
You know, the camel or the donkey can see that there's a distance and like, you know, you know, so they're gonna use what
I remember one time there was somebody who's like, you know, kept hitting the donkey. And the donkey was like, okay, he will go first time, second time, third time. And then when he found out that the man is not stopping to hit him for no reason. You know what he did? The donkey used this often. He started like moving a little bit until the man who was exactly right behind him. And he gave him a novel kicked
Sucker oh, double kick.
Yeah. And the man was like laying on the ground unconscious.
Because this man was merciless.
But does this mean that the donkey has often he can defend himself. But this is what we call
reason easy for three just to keep himself alive. But the donkey is not going to say, inshallah, in the next five years in Sharma, I'm going to save money when when I go to, you know, my trip between Ottawa and Quebec every day carrying something on my back, I'm going to save some money, inshallah, because I want to get married and buy my own house.
They're not going to do that. But humans should do that. Okay, so now
why am I saying all of this because a human being enough for him to warn him?
It's enough to get a warning. Right?
But the donkey has to use senses has to see to believe that there is a danger coming. Right? So when humans act like animals, and they want to see to believe what's happening here? Are they are they choosing to be animals? Are they turning to think like animals? You see what I'm trying to say? This is amazing. So Palawan. So this is what I said, we will not believe that you are a messenger, and this Koran is the book of guidance to us until we see that moon being split.
So when you want to see what does that mean? You're acting like an animal. Because the Quran makes perfect sense. But yet you want to see, right? And now that you saw the miracle already, should you believe or believe
but because they are stubborn, what did they say? Allah subhanaw taala said What is your
determination are back
there or void you? Why Apolo Saharan Muslim and they say this is magic. Right? But amazingly enough support Allah Allah subhanaw taala embarrasses them in certain Jeff here. So number 45. You know, on the day of judgment, they're going to be standing in front of a lie. You know what they're gonna say?
Allah Akbar, they're gonna say, yeah,
we can see now what do you see the truth?
It's too late.
So Pamela, they will say what color and they say, lacuna. nesma. If we really could listen.
we wouldn't have ended up here.
Let me ask you a question. Do the people of Christ and those who act like them today who are stubborn, not accepting the truth? Do they listen? Yes. To what to music?
Do they do they listen to the prime? They can't? They can't stand it.
And so Paula, even some people who are heatless from my family and your family, if you were to turn the moron on what happens?
Can I say, brother? Can you change this, please?
Why? Because we're not listening to it. Why don't we listen to it? If you want to have fun, why?
Do you hear that?
Do we hear that and our family member? Isn't this reality? Okay, you just come to somebody's house and visit them
and the moron is on.
I have heard this many times from many non practicing Muslims. Once they come to your house they say in he were in a garage
who passed away?
What do you have in the house?
So pan along. We link in the forum today. to the
center, the de la
la sun and soya scene, addressing Prophet Mohammed Salim
We haven't taught him poetry and he doesn't need poetry.
It's a reminder
for who we are.
the Quran is meant to be a warning for those who are alive.
The person who died, he knows exactly what happened to him.
Is that clear?
So today, whenever we hear the Parana, cinco was the way because we have our houses when
when there's a funeral,
but when there is a wedding,
what do you hear in the in the house? Music loud.
Alaska pattern has given you a blessing. Allah is giving you a wife or giving you a husband. And the first day you start your life with displeasing Allah.
You see what I'm saying? This is very important. So the people of Christ, what did they do?
Subhanallah they ended up
after denial after denial,
but on the Day of Judgment,
like somebody should talk to me about time. Yeah, she'd like run away and he's coming now when it's over. Like you should be sitting here to tell me it's time it's over. Otherwise, I'm gonna go forever. We have another Holla Holla. Okay, so I'll conclude inshallah, at least I'm going to share our man at least, because the introduction was very important. Okay.
Allah subhanaw taala tells us that we need
to listen to the Quran. To get the guidance, we need to study the Koran to act upon the Quran.
he have been one but when I talked about this two days ago, what's the word they attain? certainty
happens to the believers in this life. So when you listen to the prophecy, these are the words of Allah. I'll study them and listen to them. When you know that Allah tells you there's another life. You get ready for that life by what? By doing what pleases Allah by staying away from what makes Allah subhanaw taala angry right? But that
will never happen to the disbelievers until they die. Because they denied a day of judgment and another life. So when they stand in front of Allah, they gonna say
I wish I had done something for my life, which life
you had the dunion.
Allah has taught you a lot in the dunya. So whenever you ask about a second chance in the afternoon, second chance.
So number 2399, and below philosophy when it comes to one of them, they're going to say, give me a second chance, send me back to the
I wish I could do something good. In my first life. Color was the answer from Allah. It's too late. No. In the hacker limited.
It's lip service. You're a liar. It's fake. Woman, we're out in bars de la omeo bathroom, you will be living in the grave. Until the day comes Allah decides they will come out of the grave on the Day of Resurrection. How many times in the Quran
they are trying
to take us out.
And if we go back to what we were doing in the dunya, we are oppressors, Allah garrison to them. I was listening to them now denying his existence, and he's giving them a chance.
And this is why they're gonna stand in front of Allah.
According to sources such as the soul number 32 and number 12 and look when when do you lower your head? When do you stand up like this
when you're ashamed or embarrassed when you're disgrace a lot scribes them by saying and sort of search them while I will
be Him and He will see those criminals as we will see in sort of criminals and they're standing would lower in their heads. Why? They will say
so power in the dinner you asked me to see American you saw the Morocco but you denied now we say we see you see what you see. This is your place forever.
How many times what do you want?
A living hard takes just a warning. And then you'll get ready for that.
upsell now Simon What do you want for a journey?
Send us back. We want to do righteous deeds. We have your key now it's too late. It's too late.
So let me just start the word man and I will stop there inshallah. So Allah subhanaw taala starts the surah by urahara man
you know when you read in Surah salt. So number 38 and number 29. When Allah talked about the Koran, he said kita Boone einzelner de como Baraka Nia de barro.
Oh, Mohammed, a book, which is the Koran we sent down to you and that book is blizzard. What is the job of the book? He said Leah de barro it so they can stop, reflect? ponder Not only that, they will present themselves to the person as I told you before, what am I from this I am.
So what Allah says
I'm supposed to reflect
this is just the name of Allah.
It's not an I know it's an eye on myself. But I mean, it's not a sentence. What should I think about here? What is the message Allah subhanaw taala is sending to me here.
I was saying reflect on the name of Allah Rama.
What is the meaning of Allah? What is the meaning of the name of Allah? Three things. We've talked about this, if you remember, in Texas wattle Fatiha, but I will remind you, when you always hear the name of Allah Rahman remember three things. Number one, His mercy that stems from Rama and Rahim mercy, His mercy is
what did we say before extreme
extreme beyond your expectation? Whatever you can expect, it's beyond that. Okay. Number two, we said it's immediate, it's happening now. It is immediate, it's happening now. Number three, it's temporary. Maybe the word temporary here maybe means like something negative. But as I as I explained, I'm going to explain quickly in sha Allah. So Allah,
Allah, Allah, Allah says raha man, it means a loss of Allah tala Rama is extreme. So if you were to translate or a man, look, what translation do we say? The Merciful. That's what you always hear, right? The beneficial or the Beneficent? Both of them are correct when you say them in English. Right.
But again, I said before, when we translate the problem should give translation that people can relate to the gives the full meaning. Especially we're talking about Allah subhanaw taala. Do we use the word beneficent today?
Do we use it?
Imagine if I if I'm walking with a cane, okay. And Shabaab de la comes and helps me by holding my hand until I go to, to the to my car. Am I gonna say you are very beneficent, just like a lucky Did you hear that word today? Thank you for being beneficent to me, for helping me in my homework, to say that. So we need to use words that people can This is why people when they read the translation of the prowl today, they can go through it.
It's old language
we need to change
So ramen means the exceedingly Merciful, the incredibly Merciful, the unimaginably merciful.
You know, Allah, Allah is Allah, Allah and Allah, even when you say our child, we said this before, and Joanne, and about Bob. So let's say somebody is Joanne, it's like somebody is extremely hungry, somebody
somebody who's extremely thirsty, as I can hear now, okay. When you say,
you know, and the sisters would say, oh, you're talking about my husband. You know, it means extremely angry. That's what they do at home most of the time, right?
Then when you're extremely
when you're extremely hungry,
would that be permanent? or temporary?
Is there something that can take that extreme hunger away? Yeah. What is it some food?
Right? If you are extremely thirsty, is it permanent? Or inshallah by motherboard happens, some water or you know, if you if you come down, have a star with with Chef a smile, will give you beautiful Somali
tea. You know, it's addictive man. I visited yesterday.
Okay, so what it takes just some water, it will take that extreme thirst away.
If somebody is extremely angry, what takes away as long as Sorry?
Just to calm down, right? Just a few. Sometimes.
You gotta get calm, right? So,
again, when the last pilot talks about
his mercy suppiler hautala.
When he says a rocket man, so allies introducing the whole surah by the fact that whenever you think and reflect on any coming after this ayah you should always have in the background of your mind. That who's talking to you?
Who is talking to you? The exceedingly Merciful, the incredibly Merciful, the unimaginably merciful, okay? Now, so,
when we think about this ayah
Allah is saying,
and I'm going to conclude with this inshallah, take it as a personal experience right now. How many of our lungs merces Are you enjoying right now? I'm going to count to the very quickly, in one minute, I can count 60 of them. Do you have eyes? Do you have a job? They have hands? They have legs? Are they working? Can you hear? Can you reason they have a they have children? They have a house? They have food? I mean, what?
You can never saw lunch show His mercy to you. And what is it happening? Hello.
Now, you can say my wife is merciful. My wife is kind, right. That's generic. But is she being kind now? When she's sitting at home with the Three little monkeys? Allahu Allah.
Allahu Allah. She might lose it.
Right? But what Allah subhanaw taala says is a rough man. What does it mean? It's
extreme. It is immediate. It's happening now. Right? I just throw some of them here. I was like, eyes. You're in a machine. You have a time you can speak your parents. You're alive. You have children. They are healthy. Your income, you have a home, you have health, you have wealth. You have faculties. You have friends, you have a community.
Many people don't have this. are you grateful to our man?
So as if Allah saying what I say, Man, stop and take a personal experience with a man. How many merces is he showing you right now? Can you see me? Hello? Said Cumberland because you have eyes and you can see some people have eyes but they don't see. Can you hear me? hamdulillah you have ears. They're not bigger than mine. But you can still hear. So you have ears and you can hear right? So a lot he if we spend all of our life to show gratitude to Allah is not enough.
You see what I mean? By
So why did Allah Subhana Allah,
you know, start with with the man because Allah subhanaw taala is going to talk about many of his blessings in the coming ayat. And he wants you to be grateful to him not to be ungrateful.
He needs you to be thankful not in a state of denial. And he's gonna talk first thing about the best blessing ever, the best showing of mercy ever, which is a level four.
You know, why do the last month Allah say, Allah, Allah, Allah without saying, Who did he teach? Because Allah is a transitive verb. It needs
one object, sometimes two objects. So when I say I'll never say Arabic, taught or on, any listener would say
he taught the Quran What did he teach the Quran? For? Who did he teach?
So to answer this question, and the other questions, Allah, you know, I'm glad that we did like a long introduction for Salah man, but next time we're going to go deep on a lot more poker inshallah, in the Apollo probably had stopped
