Bismillah

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

Salam Alaikum

Alhamdulillah Allah who

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

Brahim in the law, a woman

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

lunarlon

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

salada he was

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

a lot more humid in the humid colossal later on.

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

Ibrahim Majeed Allahumma barik Adam who didn't want

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

to Allah Ibrahim

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

Ibrahim in the machine

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

specs and distance. A month ago we completed

00:01:31--> 00:01:41

the seed of sorbitol Falak. And before that, we completed the the seed of sort of the mass

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

today

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

inshallah we will be going through the seed of

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

the 112 sort of

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

floss

00:01:54--> 00:02:03

our machine on the machine similar Rihanna Rahim Allahu Allahu I had a loss on an amulet when I'm using it when I'm recording.

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

This is the 112 sort of the

00:02:09--> 00:02:19

it's known by various names. The most famous name actually mentioned in a number of these is sort of por la hora.

00:02:20--> 00:02:24

It's also known as sort of the live class, as well as sort of tawheed

00:02:26--> 00:02:37

and sort of a service. And then there are many of the names but these are the more most famous names, sort of audible and laughead is very obvious.

00:02:39--> 00:03:20

In that the prophets and the love it will send them merely use the beginning words of the sorta to give it its name. And this is actually the name mentioned in many studies. So salt or Allahu Ahad, it's also famously known as sort of a class and the meaning of a class is, in this context, at least, is to make sincere and exclusive for instance, investor or analyst he's seen a lot of Deen making religion, sincere and exclusive for Allah, all the words that are related to the roots.

00:03:21--> 00:03:37

Well, he class mean, we don't have time to go into it. But if last year means to make sincere and exclusive, it's also known as sort of the dough sheet for the simple reason that though he meaning the unity and oneness of Allah,

00:03:38--> 00:03:50

and monotheism. So, since the whole surah speaks only about Allah subhanho wa Taala and his unique nature,

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

and especially his oneness.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

This is why it's also known as sort of

00:03:57--> 00:04:18

another fourth name used for the Sora is sort of a sass it's not as well known as the first three, but it's also another name, meaning the foundation, sort of a sass meaning the foundation. And the understanding behind that name is that the surah

00:04:20--> 00:04:31

This is the very foundation of doe heed of religion, and in fact of the Holy Quran. So here we have it sort of olive oil light or a hydro sort of a flower, sort of,

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

it's the 112 sort of the

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

it's one of the most famous orders of the court and one of the most one of the shorter sort of silver bullet. And it's also one of those sorts, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite frequently and encourage the believers to recite as frequently as possible by itself. And also in conjunction with sort of, we'll follow up on sort of the mass

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

You may recall, two months ago as well as last month, when discussing sort of in front of them sort of the mass. I mentioned many Hadeeth, about the virtues of sort of the follow up and sort of the mass, as well as the usage of these two final suivants as a means of protection, prescribed by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the believers, and practiced by himself. And in all of those that had eath, there were a large number of Hadith which also included sort of Allah, Allah who I had, as the third source to be recited in conjunction with sort of the final consort of the mass. So I refer you to all of those ahaadeeth, as well as a number of ahaadeeth of virtues for sort of in

00:05:50--> 00:06:04

front of them sort of the mass which also included sort of a class. So both in terms of their virtue, as well as in terms of their prescribed reading, for protection, and for salvation.

00:06:06--> 00:06:23

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has joined these three final sorts of the so I refer you to all of those ahaadeeth about both the virtues as well as the prescribed reading protection, as I discussed in the Decennial sort of development, sort of the mass here,

00:06:24--> 00:06:33

exclusively about sort of the class, sort of the dough hadal sort of auto law, there are a number of ahaadeeth, which speak only about the surah.

00:06:35--> 00:06:40

Most famously, the the surah, is known as being one third of the Quran.

00:06:42--> 00:07:39

And that's quite commonly known and believed and in fact, it has a very authentic foundation because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself in more than one Hadees has mentioned, the surah of Allah Allah being equivalent to one third of the Quran. For instance a man Buhari with the law he lay relates the from See you then I will say even a hoodie of the law one will say is that one day a man heard another person reciting sort of, or law or I had repeatedly at night, he just kept on repeating the same sort of over and over again, the listener found this to be somewhat strange. And also the words of the have either gotten the bar lower, which means which meaning that he not only

00:07:39--> 00:08:25

found this repetition, of sort of sort of cola had strange, but he was also it seemed as though he considered it to be little IE, why was this person constantly repeating a short sort of an doesn t know anything else? Or why doesn't he recite another portion of the bar on? Why suffice with only por la hora ahead and repeat it. So this listener came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the next morning and said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa similar messenger of Allah, I heard this person repeatedly recite all Allahu Ahad over and over again without reciting anything else.

00:08:27--> 00:08:49

And when I will say the history of the Allah Who says and the Hadees gotten weird Aloha, it seems as though he considered this recitation of portico Allahu Ahad mega. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, one of the FCB, in hanadarko, sort of the Quran, by that law in whose hands rests my soul.

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

It meaning Allah who is equivalent to one third of the

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

and

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

in another Hadith, again related by Mahmoud Hadi, and his story,

00:09:04--> 00:09:13

from the same companion, and also even hopefully, not the last one, he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions,

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

can't one of you recite

00:09:21--> 00:09:26

the columns, one of you recite one third of the

00:09:28--> 00:09:44

in one man's, so this How about all the love? Some of them replied by saying or messenger of Allah, how many of us can actually do this? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Verily, Allah Allahu Ahad is equivalent to one third of the

00:09:45--> 00:09:52

so both of these are these later by the same companion coincidentally, speak about

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

being one third sorry, sort of sort of

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

being one third of the way

00:10:01--> 00:10:08

And here, the question is, what makes or hawala equivalent to one third of the arm?

00:10:09--> 00:10:10

First of all,

00:10:12--> 00:10:25

a lion is a soul some of the law Marlene who said know best in terms of virtue, because he has related to us that the surah is equivalent to one third of the Koran that's in terms of virtue,

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

and Baraka, etc. But

00:10:30--> 00:10:34

as far as meaning is concerned, in fact, it's very straightforward.

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

If we consider a summary of the entire course,

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

we will realize that,

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

ultimately, the author and speaks of three things,

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

whether it's the stories of the past, whether it's laws,

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

whether it's parables, and synergy,

00:11:00--> 00:11:18

whether it's the accounts of the people, peoples and prophets of the past, whether it's an account of the future, a prophecy, whether it's an account of the day of reckoning, or gentlemen and gentlemen, ultimately, the

00:11:19--> 00:11:27

core content will be related to one or three things, or an either speaks about the create

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

the relationship

00:11:34--> 00:11:42

between the creator and the creation, two, or three, the relationship between the creation and the creation.

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

Ultimately, that's what it's about, either the Creator Himself last week's maximum self,

00:11:50--> 00:12:01

or last week's about his relationship with his creation. And that includes all the laws, worship laws, hello, how are

00:12:02--> 00:12:11

the accounts of the past the accounts of the future, or the last week the Quran speaks about the relationship between

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

some of the creation with others.

00:12:16--> 00:12:20

And here, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about himself.

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

The core contents of the otter and can be divided into these three, the creator,

00:12:30--> 00:12:39

the creators relationship with the creation, and the creations relationship with each other. And in this Sora law speaks about the first himself.

00:12:41--> 00:13:03

This is why the, this sort of can be regarded as being one third of the art in its meaning message, because ultimately, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Throughout the Koran emphasizes his oneness is though he read countless parables, similar cheese examples after example.

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

The warnings of the previous messages,

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

the laws of worship, are

00:13:13--> 00:13:25

ultimately pointing to making religion exclusive. And one four, Allah subhanho wa Tada, his monotheism, his unity, his oneness, worshipping him and him alone.

00:13:28--> 00:13:52

right at the beginning of the Holy Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks on the same. I always, in the past three suits about in the previous two suits. I alluded to the to this also, that if you look at the beginning of the pot, and sort of the fact that what does the law say, under the law have been I mean, Rahman Rahim, Maliki Ahmed, Dean, Iraq and I would what you're gonna say,

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

or praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds,

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

the Most Gracious, the Merciful,

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

Sovereign of the Day of

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

Judgment here last week, spatz himself,

00:14:09--> 00:14:39

his names, his qualities and his attributes. And then Allah speaks about his relationship with his creation. A lot teaches us that we should be saying yuck and what he can sustain, it is only you that we worship and it is only you, from whom we seek aid and help. That's our relationship with Allah, that worship should be one of the hade exclusive for Allah. Take seeking refuge.

00:14:41--> 00:14:47

Seeking aid and assistance should only be from Allah subhanho wa.

00:14:49--> 00:14:54

And that's what this whole sort of is about. All love what I had last summer till the end.

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

Apart from those two, the chair mentioned in the beginning from

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

the alarm

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

And other virtues are also mentioned.

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

For instance, Amanda Hardy,

00:15:06--> 00:15:10

again relates from Chateau de la one,

00:15:11--> 00:15:26

that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dispatched military expedition. And the companion that he appointed as a leader of that expedition, he would lead them in prayer. And his group

00:15:28--> 00:15:36

experienced something which they hadn't before, which is that this companion that had been appointed over them who led them in prayer throughout this journey,

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

till their return.

00:15:39--> 00:15:52

Whenever he would lead them in Salah in prayer, he would recite one surah. But after having completed that surah in the rocker, he would end it with a recitation of aloha Aloha.

00:15:53--> 00:16:35

And then in the second workout, he would do the same, he'd received another Sora. And then at the end, having completed that one sore, he'd add another surah, which is all law. So the companions hadn't experienced this before. So when they returned, some of them mentioned this to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this companion, who was our amine and leader, whenever he would lead us in prayer, this is what he would do. He would always read another portion of the arm, but at the end, he would complete the rocker with a specific special recitation of all Allahu Ahad so he would always read to students in every regard. The second and the last one would always be all

00:16:35--> 00:17:09

Allahu Ahad. So Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, why don't you approach him and ask him? Why did he use to do Why did he do this? So they did. So his reply was that all la had contains the attributes of the Most Gracious man, and I love reciting the surah. So when they came back and relayed this answer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to them, going inform him that law loves him also.

00:17:10--> 00:17:18

See them under sort of the law relates to howdy very similar, but again, recorded by mumble hottie in history

00:17:20--> 00:17:34

that must have the Oba in Medina to munawwara one of the unsolved companions, was appointed to lead them in prayer as the Imam in Machito, Oba

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

and he had a habit,

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

he would begin every paragraph with a recitation of aloha Aloha.

00:17:51--> 00:18:03

And then he would add another surah. So it's similar to what we want meaning out in shuttle, the Aloha related from about that companion on the journey, he would read another sutra and an end will follow a law or

00:18:04--> 00:18:16

say that your law hang correlates that this Imam of Masjid Oba in Medina, he would recite all law at the beginning and then add another surah.

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

So

00:18:22--> 00:18:44

the companions because this was a very large congregation, they weren't on a journey. But this was a large congregation, they actually approached the man and said to him that, why do you do this, you always begin with Allah who Allah who I had. And then you add another surah, either you suffice with this was all over LA.

00:18:45--> 00:18:59

And having read it, you then go into the war and the rocker. Or if you feel and these are the words of the Hadith, that if you feel that, por la, isn't sufficient for you, in the rocker, then read something else.

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

But heap system. So

00:19:07--> 00:19:51

they approach the prophets, they actually approached them. And he, when their remonstrations became quite excessive, he actually told me quite bluntly that look, this is how I will continue to read. I will always read Paula who had an under the sword in every regard. Now either you be content with that. Or if you aren't happy with that, remove me and have someone else lead you in prayer. But at the same time, see then answer the alarm, I will say is that our companions regarded him as being the most learned and virtuous amongst them. So they did not want to remove him as the Imam. So they approach the prophets of Allah, some of them Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam questioned him that

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Why do you do what why don't you do what your companions are suggesting? Which is you suffice with the sword I think that occur or you return

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Another one instead of combining this always with another sorta

00:20:05--> 00:20:11

So, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a sort of law. I love this sort of.

00:20:12--> 00:20:16

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him look at

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

your left for the soldier has granted you entry into gym.

00:20:23--> 00:20:33

Now that how the youth as well I mean, coincidentally, all four of these Hadeeth which I've related about the virtues of sort of law had are all from so he will

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

finally say you're done.

00:20:38--> 00:20:59

And it'll be a lot more I'm not the same and so the a lot and another another journey, it'll be a lot more and he relates in the headings recorded by Mark Hamill and others, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said whoever recites por la had 10 times been a lot bent on vanilla Hello Hassan from Jimena. Allah will build a palace for him in general.

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

So,

00:21:02--> 00:21:06

save your love and when he heard this, he said Yara saw Allah

00:21:07--> 00:21:29

in that case, we will recite excessively. If for every 10 complete recitations of law law, Allah will grant us a palace and gentlemen, then we will recite excessively. So say that sort of laughs and the law and he will send them said, a law federal law, a law is more and pure lacks meaning

00:21:31--> 00:21:38

as much as you can recite a love or reward you accordingly Allah subhanho wa sallam What are those treasures are unlimited.

00:21:39--> 00:21:58

And finally one of these on what meaning shall the law says that when against had these related by mahadi is that when the province and the luck symbol retire at night, he would raise his hands and blow into reciting Warhol Allahu Allah with

00:22:00--> 00:22:30

us, and then he would wipe himself blow into his palms, and then why come self all over his body, beginning with his head, and the front part of his body and then the rear. So, again, this is something I mentioned in the previous these, this was an overall practice of the messenger some of the law or some of them. Now moving on to the actual the CEO of Allah. Allah says Allah who Allah say

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

he is a law

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

the only one

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

a summit

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

the independence a lot independence last summer, LEM unit one unit,

00:22:46--> 00:22:55

he did not give birth nor was he born. What I'm gonna go ahead and there is no one comparable to

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

him I'm Timothy

00:23:02--> 00:23:10

relates Ethan Hassan and so to others from Satan or William makara. There'll be a line one of the most famous reciters of the

00:23:11--> 00:23:23

that the pagans approached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said to him, on Mohammed described the lineage and the origin of Allah.

00:23:25--> 00:23:48

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this order, and from other generations we learned also that more than one person approach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or shall we say more than one group of people approached him and question him, both in Makkah and Medina, although the verse was revealed, Sora was revealed in Makkah. This was a question that was repeated by various people

00:23:49--> 00:23:56

to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that tellers of the origin of Allah

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

and tell us of his lineage.

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

That question may sound very bizarre to us.

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

The lineage of Allah,

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

his origin,

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

his genealogy,

00:24:13--> 00:24:25

his parents, his parentage, his trace, but that question in itself, reveals the mentality of

00:24:27--> 00:24:34

people at the time of the coming of a sort of law, some of the law it was sallam, and he also

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

makes clear to us

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

the various concepts of God that existed at that time, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came to abolish, and to replace with this monotheistic belief of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's not just a question of making ones

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Worship exclusive for Allah is also a question of conceiving and perceiving

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

of God in the correct manner.

00:25:10--> 00:25:28

How would people during the time of the Prophet son love it, who will send them view Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is speaking about the states of the world, at the time of the coming of the messenger, and he has set out to us, Sudan, in various parts of the world, not just restricted to Arabia, but in various parts of the world.

00:25:29--> 00:25:45

There was policies and the worship of many gods. But it wasn't simply a case of, there were many different gods and people worship them. If we study the perception of these gods,

00:25:49--> 00:25:54

various cultures believed in Gods being very similar to human beings.

00:25:55--> 00:26:15

Gods of love gods of Genesee gods of war, Gods would battle with each other gods are, who lived as families and as tribes and as clans. In fact, if you look into Greek mythology, Roman mythology, various mythologies of Europe,

00:26:17--> 00:26:42

as well as the Far East, this is a very clear concept of God. There is no single concept of one God, but of many gods. And these gods are almost human, full of passion, rage, jealousy, anger, badly and warring amongst themselves, each with his own, each with his or her own group or clan, own little band.

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

That was one view of God.

00:26:48--> 00:26:54

There was also a belief that there is one God of evil and one god of good, Allah being the God of good

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

and so on.

00:26:59--> 00:27:18

And when it came to the worship of many different gods and idols, there were some key fighters in Arabia and its surroundings and alarm mentioned some of them in the Koran. These are the most famous ones while these are the ones that Allah has mentioned. The most famous ones are for eight alert will resume and at the 30th

00:27:19--> 00:27:39

alarm mentions of sort of imagine that what authority to alert will erza do you see La Rosa on the third Monique, LA, Rosa and Mona were three famous goddesses, they weren't just Gods goddesses, of Arabia. And these were considered

00:27:41--> 00:27:50

some of the greatest goddesses and idols, whole tribes were devoted to these goddesses. And they were female goddesses.

00:27:52--> 00:28:03

And quite famously, they were attributed to Allah as being a lost daughters. So that resentment that was were described as being the daughters of a law.

00:28:05--> 00:28:46

There were other gods as well, many throughout Arabia, though not mentioned in the Quran. There were some Gods from the time of there was another one from the time of Arabia from the time of a sort of lots of love and even some of them and from before which has mentioned burn last panel without essays at the during the battle with other all national highly being, what do you call out to burn? And you abandon or you leave aside, the best of all create the best of creators Allah? So these are four that I mentioned and there are five of the gods or shall we say idols mentioned from the time of season immokalee Salatu was Salam mentioned in sort of more? Well, la has original says, what are

00:28:46--> 00:28:46

the

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

what are the rune what don't what are swearing What are you who we are?

00:28:53--> 00:28:58

And they said, Do not abandon your gods and do not abandon What?

00:29:00--> 00:29:12

And your rules and yet all and must so these are nine idols mentioned in the Quran, La Rosa mana burn, what? So are you who's your openness?

00:29:13--> 00:29:22

Apart from these ones actually identified in the core and there were countless others, other gods and idols, the most famous one in the garba was Hobbit

00:29:24--> 00:29:52

and this was a god referred to by Abu Sufyan after the Battle of Oxford, where he said, Oh, Robin, and many of them would call out to Hubble. So Hubble was one famous God, but it wasn't just a question of nine or 10. Arabia, as well as other parts of the world were filled with many gods and idols and goddesses. And things had become so bleak, and so ridiculous, even amongst the Arabs, that

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

every tribe had a god, a super goddess or a super God. And then every clan had a god

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

Sometimes a family would have would have its own unique, specific idol. And this is actually documented that when the Arabs will travel

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

they used to when they would

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

break off their journey, and dismount and prepare to retire for the night or for a short while.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

The Arabs would gather four stones,

00:30:29--> 00:30:33

three would be used as the

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

base or the foundation for that cauldron.

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

And their pot, and the fourth would become their temporary idol.

00:30:45--> 00:30:49

So three stones for cooking and one stone for worship.

00:30:51--> 00:30:58

And they would actually worship that stone. And then they would rise to resume their journey, they would abandon their cooking stones and abandon their

00:31:00--> 00:31:10

temporary got, and stone. In fact, again, it's documented that they would actually there was one god that was made out of flour.

00:31:12--> 00:31:27

So again, it was temporary, they would just simply need dough, carve, or form an idol from the dough, worship it. And then when they when it had expired, its need and usefulness, they would actually cook it

00:31:28--> 00:31:39

and then they would worship sweetmeats. Now these may all sound quite humorous and far fetched, but this is actually documented in Arabian literature.

00:31:40--> 00:31:54

So this is how bleak and ridiculous the situation had become when it came to worshiping the gods goddesses, stones and idols. Apart from that some some may scoff at such worship,

00:31:55--> 00:32:24

but over time, others have themselves whilst claiming to be monotheistic, whilst claiming to make religion and worship exclusive for Allah. They have apparently on a lesser scale, but with equal gravity as far as Orion is concerned, they have also been guilty of policies. So the worshipping or the excessive veneration of icons, or ascribing

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

partners to Allah or children to Allah,

00:32:31--> 00:32:34

male or female and worshipping them.

00:32:37--> 00:32:37

In the view of

00:32:40--> 00:32:43

all of these forms of worship,

00:32:44--> 00:33:12

besides worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala are equally condemned in the Quran. And this is what we see in the solar. It only contains four verses will Allahu Ahad la Samad limited one a muted, what do we have? For one? Yet, every one of these verses, excludes and precludes the possibility of any other type or form of deity besides Allah subhanho wa Taala, the one that alone and the unique.

00:33:13--> 00:33:18

Let's go through the verses of the Quran verses of the surah Allah azza wa jal says,

00:33:24--> 00:33:31

say her law, he is a law, the only one a law doesn't say a word. The one

00:33:33--> 00:33:37

is a very unique word. Worried them? Apparently.

00:33:39--> 00:34:13

Not only do they share the same routes, they are related, but they apparently mean the same thing. Why had one in Arabic I had, apparently just the one in Arabic. But in reality, they are two distinct words, although they share the same root word means one. But with warhead, warhead is part of a series of numbers. So with one it follows two three, with one there follows a two and a three. But ahead, although it means one, it actually means the only one. That is no second to add.

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

It's exclusive. So last time who doesn't just say

00:34:19--> 00:34:26

Allahu Allahu Allah, say he is a law, the one say he is a law.

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

The only one

00:34:30--> 00:34:37

there is no second god there's no second god of evil. There are no other gods. There are no other deities.

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

Say He is Allah The only one

00:34:42--> 00:34:53

and other verses. In fact as I said earlier, most of the Koran is devoted to the hidden the exclusive worship or lifespan of water either, but there are some verses which are very telling

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

about the oneness of Allah. I mentioned earlier that in various mythologies

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

There is a belief that Gods would battle with each other

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

and that there is a war of gods.

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

Alas, Pamela actually refers to that in the Koran.

00:35:18--> 00:35:32

In sort of Columbia Law, there was no Say's Law kind of fee him out early on in the La Jolla. facilita subpanel la hora de la Sham nice food. If there were other gods besides Allah in the heavens and the earth.

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

They would both Perish the heavens and the earth will perish.

00:35:38--> 00:35:43

glorified and purified and sanctified by a lot of what they describe about

00:35:47--> 00:36:08

and then in another verse and sort of the last panel Adana says, look, no matter who earlier Tonka Maya poo isn't a toe in other lauscha Seville Allah subhanho wa Taala Amaya Ruben Kabira. Say, if there were other gods with Allah as they say, then they would surely find a path to the Lord of the Throne.

00:36:11--> 00:36:14

sanctified, Bihi and Exalted be He,

00:36:16--> 00:36:41

of those things that they associate with him. What does that verse speak of in both of these verses, alas, panelboards, Allah says exactly the same. But if there were other gods, then there would be this constant battle. That would be a war, raging war. And in that verse, they would go into the analysis of these other gods would find a path to the Lord of the Throne.

00:36:42--> 00:36:50

But there are no other gods. And in another verse of swords, you don't have a lot of me, what am I gonna do that era

00:36:51--> 00:36:54

is another Hakuna. Mahalo when Allah

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

Subhana Allah.

00:36:58--> 00:37:01

Allah says, Allah has not taken a son.

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

And that and there is no other God with Allah.

00:37:07--> 00:37:12

If that was the case, then each God

00:37:13--> 00:37:16

would withdraw with his own creation.

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

And then they would assault each

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

sanctified by Allah, of what they describe about.

00:37:32--> 00:37:43

So, indeed, this, these ideas and these concepts of God from various mythologies are actually referred to in the order. They believed in

00:37:44--> 00:38:02

a cosmos, which was at war they believed in heaven, full of various gods and goddesses that were waging war against each other. But alas crammer horadada says, if that was the case, the heavens and the earth would perish. But the heavens and the earth exist

00:38:03--> 00:38:12

in a fine balance, and they are upheld, by Allah, the creator, the Sustainer, the originator, the one and only the unique.

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

So Paul law say he is a law but only one.

00:38:18--> 00:38:28

A lot of summit. Allah the summit. summit is a very unique word, sulphides it means the ultimate refuge.

00:38:30--> 00:38:40

everything and everyone is dependent on something. This verse actually addresses various concepts of gods of God, which

00:38:43--> 00:38:50

say, that God has a symbiotic relationship with his creation, or with creation.

00:38:51--> 00:39:07

Creation depends on God and God depends on the creation. Creation depends on the creator and creator, the creator depends on the creation. And there have been various cultures and religions of the past which actually had this belief that

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

the God is necessary,

00:39:11--> 00:39:30

because there has to be a god for the universe, and there has to be a universe for God. And that there is a symbiotic relationship between the creation and the Creator. Both need each other. A summer the word addresses that a summit means in the in the words of am delighted my boss of the alarm.

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

He says a summit is he

00:39:36--> 00:39:49

on who everyone everything depends, but he depends on not one or anything. A summit is he These are the words of Abdullah in our bus on the alaba nkhoma. summit is He

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

who is absolute and perfect in his nobility, absolute and perfect in his mastery absolute and perfect in this

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Knowledge, absolute and perfect in his wisdom.

00:40:04--> 00:40:17

That's the meaning of a summit. It means many different things. The one who is totally independent, whilst everything and everyone is dependent on him, he is the ultimate refuge.

00:40:18--> 00:40:37

The eternal, the perfect the absolutes, but a single translation of a summit would be independent, a lot some of Allah the independent, let me lead one a muted, he did not beget, nor was he begotten, he did not give birth, nor was he born.

00:40:40--> 00:40:57

This verse addresses the origin of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the question posed by a number of people to Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in both Makkah and Medina at various stages of his prophets that and his message was that all Mohammad

00:40:59--> 00:41:08

described to as the lineage of your Lord, tell us about the origin of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, allows origin

00:41:09--> 00:41:10

let me get it one Newland.

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

He was never born.

00:41:15--> 00:41:20

Allah has always existed, Allah will always exist, Allah His return.

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

For him, there was no beginning and there is no end.

00:41:25--> 00:41:46

And a verse of the Quran and he describes this beautifully, who will or what or will have had all along over here What about and all the cliche Nadeem, Allah says, He is the first and he is the last. He is the outward and he is the inward. And he is the one who is all knowledgeable and all knowing of all things.

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

We may not understand that.

00:41:51--> 00:41:57

The eternal nature of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he has always existed and will always exist.

00:41:59--> 00:42:14

Quite simply, our minds do not have the capacity, they don't have the ability to fathom, comprehend, even to dwell and to reflect on this reality of a mass pan of water.

00:42:16--> 00:42:22

As human beings we are frail, our bodies are frail, our hearts are frail, our minds are frail.

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

And there is only so much that we can actually do.

00:42:28--> 00:42:41

A fleet is more capable than a human being in some aspects, a fleet can leap 40 times its body length, a human being can barely manage twice its body length.

00:42:42--> 00:43:09

Throughout the last creation of animals, birds and beasts, we will see that animals and even humble insects, surpasses and supersede as in various aspects. In hearing insights, even in intelligence, they there was a you can search for it and watch the clips video clips of it. They did an experiment with numbers and monkeys.

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

And the monkeys response to numbers flashing up on the screen.

00:43:18--> 00:43:42

And they were amazed. They tested with a few different monkeys. Every single monkey proved to be faster than a human being in its recognition. And its response to flashing numbers. And its memory of those numbers. So even in intelligence, take any one of our senses, whether it's smell or whether it's sight, whether it's hearing, whether it's touch,

00:43:43--> 00:43:44

whether it's memory,

00:43:46--> 00:44:13

whether it's physical ability of the limbs, of the legs, of the hands of the arms, of physical strength, or ultimately even of human intelligence, we will notice that individually. Of course Allah has honored us overall. So that last panel data overall has made human beings the best and the great greatest of his creation. Work of karma bunny Adam, Allah says And indeed, we have honored the children of Adam.

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

But

00:44:17--> 00:45:00

we are still weak, we are still limited in our capabilities, if humble insects and humble animals and beasts can outdo us surpasses supersede us in simple tasks. How can we aggregate to ourselves a belief that these humble minds of ours that have been created by Allah subhanho wa Taala can actually comprehend the Creator Himself? We cannot, so far as it's a question of belief. This is why your mom will hardly really relate to the youth in which he says shape I will come to one of you and constantly asked you repeatedly asked you that Who has created this Who has created this and when the answer is given

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

Allah shavonne will then finally pose a question. Well then who created a lot? So what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself suggest as an answer? He said, then you say, I believe in and you say,

00:45:15--> 00:45:28

you seek protection from the occurs devil, and you affirm and ratify your faith in Allah, because there will always come limits when intelligence seizes, and faith begins.

00:45:29--> 00:45:42

Because our human minds are feeble, and we are unable to fathom or truly appreciate the reality of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's why he says, Listen to the record, absorb,

00:45:44--> 00:45:55

absorb the difference, a B, sides cannot encompass him, and he encompasses all sides, and he is the subtle, the all knowing.

00:45:57--> 00:46:12

So when Allah says, He is the first and he is the last, and he is the out, he is inward, and he is the outward and he is all knowing of all things. We affirm our faith in Allah azza wa jal, Ally's eternal, he was never bought.

00:46:13--> 00:46:14

And another thing

00:46:16--> 00:46:31

he was never born is a second part of the verse let me use it. He was never, he never gave birth. This refers to the belief that Allah has children, daughters or sons.

00:46:33--> 00:46:44

And both have been ascribed to Allah. As Allah says in the verse of the Quran, which Allah has Shoraka Elgin nawala araku bonino bonati Marine,

00:46:46--> 00:46:59

la saison they have made the djinns partners of Allah, even though Allah, Allah has created a lot created the gems, but they make Jin's partners to Allah.

00:47:01--> 00:47:09

And then last is Roku Banana, banana temporary Roku and they have fabricated for Allah sons and daughters

00:47:10--> 00:47:18

without and daughters, the goddesses of Arabia and others, even the angels, glossies.

00:47:20--> 00:47:35

man enough, and they have made question our angels, males or females. The common perception in various cultures and religions is that angels are females. But Allah says, and they have made

00:47:38--> 00:47:44

those angels who are the servants of man the Most Gracious, they have made them females.

00:47:47--> 00:48:20

What were they a witness into the creation of the angels. So and then having made these angels feminine, they were ascribed as daughters to Allah, just as various goddesses like love, resentment that were ascribed as daughters to Allah. And various people have been ascribed to Allah subhanho wa Taala as being the son of a law or the sons of Allah. So whether it's a son or sons, whether it's a daughter or daughters, Allah subhanho wa Taala has no children. And as a law says in a verse of the Quran

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

anikulapo Allah who saw

00:48:31--> 00:48:35

how can Allah have a child when he has no part?

00:48:36--> 00:48:37

When he has no wife?

00:48:39--> 00:48:48

This is that concept of God as a member of a family, with a wife, with a partner with a spouse with children.

00:48:51--> 00:48:52

A lot did not get himself.

00:48:54--> 00:48:59

A lot did not have a partner who gave birth. Allah was not given birth himself.

00:49:00--> 00:49:17

And the Quran speaks very strongly about this belief of ascribing children to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But various verses, I won't repeat them. I'll just mention one from sort of medium, what kind of man or whatever the local machine it took a while to get

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

the money what are the members money

00:49:24--> 00:49:38

in coolamon system? Oh, well, all the money I saw him was at the waka lumati Yama, Yama defaulter, Allah says, and they have said that among the most gracious has taken a son for himself.

00:49:40--> 00:49:43

Verily you have brought forth a great enormity.

00:49:45--> 00:49:49

The heavens are about to split asunder because of it.

00:49:52--> 00:49:57

And the earth is also about to split because of its weather

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

and the mountains

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

are about to fall and collapse because of it. And the anger of man one of the, that they have claimed for a man, the Most Gracious person

00:50:11--> 00:50:30

and it is not befitting for the Most Gracious that he takes a son for himself very far from taking any one of his creation as a son. Allah says, in column one for summer worth one, there is no one in the entire heavens in the earth, except that they will all come to Allah as a servant.

00:50:32--> 00:50:36

Even the messengers of Allah will come to Allah as a servant

00:50:37--> 00:50:38

nakoda song

00:50:40--> 00:50:44

Allah has enumerate enumerate them, and Allah has counted them one by one

00:50:46--> 00:50:53

column at the home of the Father, on the Day of Resurrection, every one of them will come to LA alone as an individual.

00:50:55--> 00:51:21

That's just one set of verses but there are very various verses throughout the program in which a lot addresses this topic of ascribing children to Allah whether they are male or female. So under the eliminated one a Mulan In fact, a mammal How do they relate to these in his heat from say, Moosa do the law one in which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, law has only one duration martyrdom, spermine

00:51:23--> 00:51:23

martyrdom

00:51:26--> 00:51:28

and other than 70, or one minute law,

00:51:30--> 00:51:36

you're the only local word for your Alfie Moore's Law says there is no one who is more patient

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

upon hearing abuse than Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:51:42--> 00:51:48

They claim some for him, and he continues to provide for them and to protect

00:51:50--> 00:51:52

and in another Hadees, related by Mahatma in his

00:51:54--> 00:52:06

pursuit of love some of the lahardee essays from say the mobile era holy Allah and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah, God, Adam, what are you coming up with adequate shelter money?

00:52:08--> 00:52:08

If not,

00:52:10--> 00:52:13

format v bu Ei for

00:52:16--> 00:52:17

your evening

00:52:19--> 00:52:20

Kamala can come up

00:52:21--> 00:52:21

with

00:52:23--> 00:52:28

a way to help me out when I am in a additi one mesh Wi Fi for

00:52:32--> 00:52:36

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah has the original says,

00:52:38--> 00:52:41

Man has written some of Adam has rejected me.

00:52:42--> 00:52:55

And it is not possible. It's not permissible for him to do this. He has no right to do, this son of Adam has abused me. And he has no right to do this. As for his belying me and rejecting me.

00:52:57--> 00:53:05

It is his claim that I will not return him to his former creation, just as I created in the first time, even though

00:53:07--> 00:53:17

creating the first time is no easier for me is no simpler for me than recreating the second time. I both are equal total.

00:53:22--> 00:53:23

And son of Adam,

00:53:24--> 00:53:30

he has abused me and his abusing of me is over the I have taken a son for myself.

00:53:32--> 00:54:21

What I had to submit them, Elliot, what am I? What am ukoliko for one for one, Allah says, and son of Adams, abusing me is his claim that I have taken a son for myself, when I am the one the unique, it's a variation of sort of love I had, when I am the one that unique. I wasn't I did not give birth, nor was I born. And there is no one who is comparable to me. So what I'm having speak very strongly about all forms of polytheistic belief, whether it's the worship of many gods, or the worship of icones, instead of gods, even though they may be related to Allah, or ascribing children, male or female to Allah.

00:54:22--> 00:54:36

And finally, the sort of ends of the words what I'm going to go ahead and there is no one who is comparable to Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way whatsoever, a law has no equal and as a loss Azan versus the least cliche.

00:54:38--> 00:54:59

perceive there is there is nothing, not just no one. But Lisa committed he she, there is nothing like unto Allah, and he's the all hearing or seeing. There's so much that can be said about sort of global law had, but this is a simple translation and summary means

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Meaning of these verses, I pray that lots of water and that enable us to understand the words of Allah and to

00:55:09--> 00:55:21

act upon these words of tawheed. May Allah make our prayers, our worship and our religion and our being exclusive for last parameter Allah, Allah who was in the manner of the order student of being a father

00:55:23--> 00:55:24

in a lot more

00:55:25--> 00:55:26

land
