Allahu

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

Allah,

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

Allah

00:01:20--> 00:01:24

spectrum listeners, a month ago we completed

00:01:26--> 00:01:35

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

00:01:37--> 00:01:37

today

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

insha Allah who will be going through the seed of

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

the 112 sort of sort of belief last

00:01:49--> 00:01:57

hour that we learn in a sheet on the regime. Bismillah Rahim Allah por la I had a lot of stone amelita when I'm when I'm recording,

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

this is the 112 sort of.

00:02:04--> 00:02:13

It's known by various names. The most famous name actually mentioned in a number of studies, is sort of olive oil in Lahore.

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

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

00:02:21--> 00:02:32

and sort of a service. And then there are many other names, but these are the more most famous names, sort of all of what I had is very obvious.

00:02:34--> 00:03:29

In that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam merely use the beginning words of the sorter to give it its name. And this is actually the name mentioned in many heavies, so sorted or who Allahu Ahad. It's also famously known as sort of a floss. And the meaning of a class is, in this context, at least, is to make sincere and exclusive. For instance, investor or analysts, he's seen a lot of been making religion, sincere and exclusive for Allah, all the words that are related to the roots. Well, he, the 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

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

the unity and oneness of Allah,

00:03:33--> 00:03:44

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

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

and especially his oneness.

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

This is why it's also known as sort of

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

another fourth

00:03:54--> 00:04:13

name used for the sore 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

00:04:14--> 00:04:25

This is the very foundation of the hate 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, so sort of,

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

it's the 112 sort of the Koran. It's one of the most famous sort of sort of 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 encouraged the believers to recite as frequently as possible by itself. And also in conjunction with sort of been fed up and sort of the mass. You may recall two months ago as well as last month, when discussing

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

Sort of unfolded and sort of the mass, I mentioned many Hadeeth, about the virtues of sort of follow up and sort of the mass, as well as the usage of these two final suits as a means of protection prescribed by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam for the believers and practice by himself. And in all of those that have eath there were a large number of Hadith which also included, sort of Allah, Allah who I have, as the third surah to be recited in conjunction with sort of the funnel 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 front of them sort of the mass, which also included sort of a class. So both

00:05:50--> 00:05:59

in terms of their virtue, as well as in terms of their prescribed reading, for protection, and for salvation.

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

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

00:06:19--> 00:06:28

exclusively about sort of class, sort of adulthood, or sort of global level. And there are a number of ahaadeeth, which speak only about the sort of,

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

most famously, the the sort of is known as being one third of the order.

00:06:36--> 00:07:34

And that's quite commonly known and believed and in fact that he has a very authentic foundation because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself in more than one has mentioned, the sort of olive oil law had been equivalent to one third of the court. For instance, Amanda hardy with the law Healy relates from say that I will say even a hoodie of the law home will say is that one day a man heard another person reciting sort of Lahore, Lahore had repeatedly at night, he just kept on repeating the same song over and over again, the listener found this to be somewhat strange, and also the words of the heavy forgotten who you are, which means, which mean that he not only from

00:07:34--> 00:08:20

this repetition, of sort of sort of global law had strange, but he was also it seemed as though he considered it to be literal, 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 Koran? Why suffice with only a political level ahead and repeat it? So this listener came to the property of the law it was selling them the next morning and set to the province of the law, legal similar messenger of Allah. I heard this person repeatedly recite all Allahu Ahad over and over again without reciting anything else.

00:08:21--> 00:08:39

And when I will say the history of the alarm, I will say is in the Hades gotten that we are lower. It seems as though he considered this recitation of political Allahu Ahad nega. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, one of the FCB in the heart attack, little sort of,

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

by that line whose hands rests my soul.

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

It's meaning all hawala is equivalent to one third of the

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

and

00:08:52--> 00:09:05

in another Hadith, again related by mum Harry and his story, from the same companion and also even hoodie of the last one. He says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions,

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

can't one of you recite?

00:09:15--> 00:09:19

Can't one of you resides one third of the,

00:09:21--> 00:09:37

in one man's, so this habit of the alarm, 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, por la hora is equivalent to one third of the court.

00:09:38--> 00:09:45

So both of these are these related by the same companion coincidentally, speak about

00:09:46--> 00:09:52

being one third sorry, sort of sort of law being one third of the order.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

And here the question is, what makes on one law equivalent

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

One third of the arm.

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

First of all,

00:10:05--> 00:10:18

a lot of nice little soul, some of the law Marley who suddenly 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,

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

Baraka etc. But

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

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

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

If we consider a summary of the entire course,

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

we will realize that

00:10:37--> 00:10:42

out ultimately, the Quran speaks of three things.

00:10:43--> 00:10:48

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

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

whether it's parables, and synergy,

00:10:53--> 00:11:10

whether it's the accounts of the people, peoples and profits 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

00:11:12--> 00:11:20

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

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

or the relationship

00:11:27--> 00:11:35

between the creator and the creation, to all or three, the relationship between the creation and the creation.

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

Ultimately, that's what it's about, either the Creator Himself last week's battle itself,

00:11:43--> 00:11:54

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

00:11:55--> 00:12:03

the accounts of the past the accounts of the future, all last week, the Koran speaks about the relationship between

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

some of the creation with others.

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

And here, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about himself.

00:12:14--> 00:12:19

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

00:12:23--> 00:12:32

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

00:12:34--> 00:12:56

This is why the this or I can be regarded as being one third of the or an in its meaning message. Because ultimately, our last panel hautala throughout the course, emphasizes his oneness is though he made countless parables similar cheese examples after example.

00:12:58--> 00:13:01

The warnings of the previous messages

00:13:02--> 00:13:18

the laws of worship, have had and ultimately pointing to making religion exclusive. And one for last Hannibal Adana, his monotheism, his unity, his oneness, worshiping him and him alone.

00:13:20--> 00:13:45

right at the beginning of the whole report, an on last panel with the HANA speaks on the same I always in the past three suits about in the previous two suits. I alluded to this to this also, that if you look at the beginning of the report and sort of refer to what is the last 100 in that regard, I mean, Rahman Rahim, Maliki on with Dean er can I'm good we're gonna stay

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

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

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

the Most Gracious, the Merciful,

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

Sovereign of the Day of

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

Judgment here last week, spouse himself,

00:14:02--> 00:14:22

his names, his qualities and his attributes. And then a law speaks about his relationship with his creation. A law teaches us that we should be saying, yuck, and I was gonna say, it is only you that we worship, and it is only you, from whom we seek aid and help.

00:14:23--> 00:14:32

That's our relationship with Allah, that worship should be one of the Hague exclusive for Allah. Take seeking refuge.

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

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

00:14:41--> 00:14:46

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

00:14:48--> 00:14:55

Apart from those two, the chair mentioned in the beginning from Hussein who did a lot one other there, she's also mentioned

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

finsen semana de la la again

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

relates ideas from Sharia law.

00:15:04--> 00:15:19

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

00:15:20--> 00:15:28

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,

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

till their return.

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

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 Lahore, Lahore.

00:15:46--> 00:16:29

And then in the second regard, he would do the same, he'd recite another Sora. And then at the end, having completed that one surah, he'd add another surah, which is good, hola hola. 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 law. So he would always read to students in every regard, the second and the last one would always be our law head.

00:16:29--> 00:17:01

So the 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 law 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 salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to them, go and inform him, that law loves him also.

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

See them unnecessarily. Allah relates the heavy, very similar, but again, recorded by mumble hottie in history

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

that much of the Oba in Medina terminal was one of the unsolved companions, was appointed to lead them in prayer as the Imam in mustard, Oba.

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

And he, he had a habit,

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

he would begin every Raka with a recitation of olive oil in Lahore.

00:17:41--> 00:18:06

And then he would add another surah. So it's similar to what we were looking at in shuttle, the alarm on how related from about that companion on the journey, he would read another surah. And an end will follow a lot but I had saved them I understood the alarm and correlates that this amount of Machito Oba in Medina, he would recite all law at the beginning, and then add another surah.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

So

00:18:12--> 00:18:26

the companions because this was a very large congregation, they went 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 the rocker with Allah.

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

And then you add another source, either you suffice with this with Allah.

00:18:35--> 00:18:49

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

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

But heap system.

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

So

00:18:57--> 00:19:39

they approached the prophets, they actually approached them. And he, when their remonstrations became quite excessive, he actually told him quite bluntly that look, this is how I will continue to read, I will always read or hawala or I had another sort of in every locker. 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 that answer the alarm, I will say is that the companions regarded him as being the most learned and virtuous amongst them. So they did not want to remove him as the man so they approached the prophets of Allah it some of them, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

questioned him that 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 aka or you read another one, instead of combining this always with another sorta. So he said to the prophets on the love it was sort of law. I love this sword.

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

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

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

your love for the surah has granted you entry into gem.

00:20:12--> 00:20:21

Now that how the youth as well I mean coincidentally all four of these Hadith which are related about the virtues of sort of local law, often so he will

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

finally say that

00:20:27--> 00:20:48

under the law are not the same, and so the law and another another sort of journey, it'll be a law when he relates in our heads recorded by Mark Hamill and others, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever recites por la had 10 times been a lot better than la Jimena. Allah will build a palace for him in general.

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

So,

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

saving your loved one when he heard this he said Yasuda la

00:20:56--> 00:21:18

in that case, we will recite excessively if for every 10 complete recitations of all level, I have a lower grant as a panelist and gentlemen, then we will recite excessively so say that sort of laughs and it will send themselves a lot of federal appeal a lot is more and pure lacks meaning

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

as much as you will recite a lover reward you accordingly. Allah subhanho wa sallam What are those treasures are unlimited.

00:21:27--> 00:21:46

And finally one of these on what meaning shall the law says that when against had these related by number 13 is speed but when the prophet SAW the law it will retire at night, he would raise his hands and blow in reciting Warhol Allahu Ahad

00:21:48--> 00:22:08

last and then he would wipe himself blow into his palms and then wipe himself 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 had these this was an overall practice of the messenger some of the law

00:22:09--> 00:22:19

now moving on to the actual the CEO of law had a lot more than essays or law had say

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

he is a law

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

the only one

00:22:25--> 00:22:25

a summit

00:22:28--> 00:22:33

the independence a lot independence love summit. Let me let one of you live

00:22:34--> 00:22:43

he did not give birth nor was he born. What um, Yoko Lahore Go ahead. And there is no one comparable to

00:22:48--> 00:22:48

a man

00:22:50--> 00:22:58

who likes to defend his salon and so to others from Satan or William makara. That'll be your line. One of the most famous reciters of the

00:23:00--> 00:23:04

that the pagans approached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said to him,

00:23:05--> 00:23:11

on Mohammed described the lineage and the origin of Allah.

00:23:14--> 00:23:31

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this or, and from other narrations, 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. And

00:23:32--> 00:23:36

this was a question that was repeated by various people

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that tell us of the origin of Allah

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

and tell us of his lineage.

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

That question may sound very bizarre to us.

00:23:53--> 00:23:55

The lineage of Allah,

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

his origin,

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

his genealogy,

00:24:02--> 00:24:14

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

00:24:15--> 00:24:15

people

00:24:16--> 00:24:24

at the time of the coming over sort of law, sort of the law it was on them. And he also makes clear to us

00:24:25--> 00:24:53

the various concepts of God that existed at that time, which the profit some of the love it was and came to abolish. And to replace with this monotheistic belief of Allah subhanho wa Tada. It's not just a question of making one's worship, exclusive for Allah. It's also a question of conceiving and perceiving

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

of God in the correct manner.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

How would people during the time of the

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Prophet, some love Allah He 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 with Sudan, in various parts of the world, not just restricted to Arabia, but in various parts of the world.

00:25:17--> 00:25:32

Those 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,

00:25:36--> 00:25:41

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

00:25:42--> 00:26:03

Gods of love gods of Genesee gods of war, Gods would battle with each 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,

00:26:04--> 00:26:30

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, battling and warring amongst themselves, each with his own, each with his or her own group or clan, own little band.

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

That was one view of God.

00:26:36--> 00:26:41

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

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

and so on.

00:26:46--> 00:27:05

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 Quran. These are the most famous ones while these are the ones that Allah has mentioned. The most famous ones are for right or left or will resume and at the 30th.

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

Allah mentions of sort of mention that what authority to alert Allah Riza Do you see that Rosa and the third monarch, lat? Rosa, and Munna were three famous goddesses, they weren't just Gods goddesses, of Arabia, and these were considered

00:27:29--> 00:27:37

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

00:27:39--> 00:27:51

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

00:27:52--> 00:28:33

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 is mentioned ban, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, 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 creators, 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 see them immokalee Salatu was Salam mentioned in sort of more? Well, la has original says,

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

what are the

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

what are the rules? What don't what are swearing What are your rules?

00:28:40--> 00:28:45

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

00:28:47--> 00:28:59

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

00:29:00--> 00:29:09

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

00:29:12--> 00:29:18

and this was a god referred to by Abu Sufyan after the Battle of Oxford, where he said,

00:29:19--> 00:29:39

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 have become so bleak and so ridiculous, even amongst the Arabs, that

00:29:40--> 00:29:57

every tribe had a god, a super goddess or a super God, and then every clan had a god. Sometimes a family would have would have its own unique specific idol. And this is actually documented, but when the Arabs will travel

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

They used to when they would

00:30:05--> 00:30:11

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

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

The Arabs would gather four stones,

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

three would be used as the

00:30:22--> 00:30:26

base or the foundation for that cauldron,

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

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

00:30:32--> 00:30:36

So three stones for cooking, and one stone for where

00:30:38--> 00:30:46

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

00:30:47--> 00:30:57

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

00:30:59--> 00:31:14

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's had expired, its need and usefulness that would actually cook it.

00:31:16--> 00:31:26

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

00:31:28--> 00:31:41

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

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

But

00:31:44--> 00:32:12

over time, others have themselves once 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 iron is concerned, they have also been guilty of policies. So the worshipping or the excessive veneration of icons, or ascribing

00:32:13--> 00:32:17

partners to Allah or children to Allah,

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

male or female, and worshipping them.

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

In the view of

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

all of these forms of worship,

00:32:31--> 00:32:59

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, but of all Allahu Ahad la Samad limited one of you that are Macondo, and 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 in the universe.

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

Let's go through the verses of the Quran verses of the surah Allah azza wa jal says, One save a whole lot. He is Allah, the only one? A lot doesn't say a word. The one

00:33:15--> 00:33:19

is a very unique word. Why? Apparently,

00:33:21--> 00:33:48

not only do they share the same route, 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 one head. warhead is part of a series of numbers. So with why it follows to three, with one that follows a two and a three. But

00:33:50--> 00:33:55

although it means one, it actually means the only one that is no second to add.

00:33:56--> 00:34:00

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

00:34:01--> 00:34:08

Hola, Hola, hola. And when I say he is a law, the one say he is a law.

00:34:10--> 00:34:11

The only one

00:34:12--> 00:34:19

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

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

Say He is Allah The only one

00:34:24--> 00:34:35

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

00:34:37--> 00:34:48

about the oneness of Allah. I mentioned earlier that in various mythologies, there is a belief that Gods would battle with each other

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

and that there is a war of Gods

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

a last parameter without actually refers to that in the Koran.

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

In sort of the ambient levels, there was on sales lockdown a female earlier on in the level of a Senator subpanel. I had a blast on my cell phone. If there were other gods besides Allah in the heavens and the earth,

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

they would both Perish the heavens and the earth were perish,

00:35:20--> 00:35:25

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

00:35:29--> 00:35:50

And then in another verse and sort of the last panel that Allah says, below Ghana matter who earlier on gamma yaku is an ATO Sabina subhanho wa Taala. Rama Rama Leuven, 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.

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

sanctified, Bihi and Exalted be He,

00:35:58--> 00:36:17

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

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

be like these other gods would find a path to the Lord of the Throne.

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

But there are no other gods.

00:36:27--> 00:36:31

And in another verse, we don't have a lot more what are the America and America

00:36:33--> 00:36:36

is another Hakuna mahalo what Allah

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

Subhana Allah.

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

Allah says, Allah has not taken a son.

00:36:45--> 00:36:48

And that, and there is no other God with Allah.

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

If that was the case, then each God

00:36:55--> 00:36:58

would withdraw with his own creation.

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

And then they would assault each

00:37:08--> 00:37:12

sanctified the Allah of what they describe about.

00:37:14--> 00:37:25

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

00:37:26--> 00:37:44

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

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

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

00:37:55--> 00:37:59

So say He is Allah, but only one.

00:38:00--> 00:38:11

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

00:38:12--> 00:38:22

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

00:38:25--> 00:38:32

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

00:38:33--> 00:38:49

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

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

the God is necessary.

00:38:53--> 00:39:12

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 a summer the word addresses that a summit means in the in the words of Abdullah Abbas of the alarm,

00:39:13--> 00:39:16

he says, a summit is he

00:39:18--> 00:39:45

on whom everyone everything depends, but he depends on no one or anything. A summit is he These are the words of Abdullah Mar bustle the Allahumma. A summit is He who is absolute and perfect in his nobility, absolute and perfect in his mastery, absolute and perfect in his knowledge, absolute and perfect in his wisdom.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

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

00:40:01--> 00:40:19

The eternal the perfect the absolute, but a single translation of a summit would be independent, a lot some of Allah the independence, let me lead one a muted, he did not began, nor was he forgotten. He did not give birth, nor was he born.

00:40:22--> 00:40:39

This verse addresses the origin of the last panel, the question posed by a number of people to assault Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in both Mecca and Medina at various stages of his prophets are done this message was that all Mohammed

00:40:41--> 00:40:50

described to as the lineage of your Lord, tell us about the origin of Allah. So Allah is proud of all of the Allah says Allah is origin.

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

Let me get it, what a mule it

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

he was never born.

00:40:57--> 00:41:02

Allah has always existed, Allah will always exist, alive is eternal.

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

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

00:41:07--> 00:41:28

And a verse of the Quran and he describes this beautifully, who will or what a will appear over here What about and all the cliche imagine, 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.

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

We may not understand that.

00:41:33--> 00:41:39

The eternal nature of a Lost Planet, he has always existed and will always exist.

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

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 Lost Planet water.

00:41:58--> 00:42:04

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

00:42:06--> 00:42:09

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

00:42:10--> 00:42:23

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.

00:42:24--> 00:42:51

throughout a large creation of animals, birds and beasts, we will see that animals and even humble insects, surpasses and supersede us 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.

00:42:53--> 00:42:59

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

00:43:00--> 00:43:24

And they were amazed. They tested with a few different monkeys, every single monkey proves 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, whether it's sight, whether it's hearing, whether it's touch,

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

whether it's memory,

00:43:28--> 00:43:55

whether it's physical ability of the limbs, of the legs, of the hands of the arms, of physical strength, or ultimately even our 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. We're not gonna have any Adam, Allah says And indeed, we have honored the children of Adam.

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

But

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

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 the last panel to Allah can actually comprehend the Creator Himself? We can not. So far as it's a question of belief. This is why your mom will hardly really relate to Ethan which he says shavon 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 Allah shavon will then finally pose a question. Well then who created a lot? So

00:44:47--> 00:44:55

what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself suggests as an answer, he said, then you say, I believe in and you say

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

you seek protection from the

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

A devil, and you affirm and ratify your faith in Allah, because there will always come and limits when intelligence seizes. And faith begins.

00:45:11--> 00:45:25

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, to the record, absorb,

00:45:26--> 00:45:37

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

00:45:39--> 00:45:57

So, when Allah says, He is the first and he is the last, and he is the answer, he is inward, and he is the outward, and he is all knowing of all things. We affirm our faith and Allah has a life eternal, he was never born. And another thing let me yell it.

00:45:58--> 00:46:13

He was never born as 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.

00:46:15--> 00:46:23

And both have been ascribed to Allah. As Allah says in the verse of the Quran, which Allah has Shoraka, a lot

00:46:25--> 00:46:26

of anatomy later in

00:46:28--> 00:46:41

last season they have made the gyms partners have a law, even though laws create a law created the gyms but they make gyms partners to Allah.

00:46:43--> 00:46:45

And then last is Roku bonino binotto

00:46:46--> 00:46:51

roku and they have fabricated for Allah sons and daughters

00:46:52--> 00:46:52

without

00:46:54--> 00:47:17

and daughters, the goddesses of Arabia and others, even the angels last season, Dr. Levine, homi Bhabha, man enough, and they have made this question our angels, males or females. A common perception in various cultures and religions is that angels are females, but Allah says, and they have made

00:47:20--> 00:47:26

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

00:47:29--> 00:48:02

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 a law. So whether it's a son or sons, whether it's a daughter or daughters, or last panel with Allah has no children, and as the law says, universal, the poor and

00:48:04--> 00:48:05

Analia kulula, what are the what?

00:48:08--> 00:48:12

How can Allah have a child, when he has no power,

00:48:13--> 00:48:14

when he has no wife?

00:48:16--> 00:48:25

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

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

A lot did not get himself.

00:48:31--> 00:48:36

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

00:48:37--> 00:48:49

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 money, what kind of

00:48:51--> 00:48:54

legitimacy in the goddess and I want to get

00:48:57--> 00:49:07

the money whether the woman in the money, or the economic system or in the author of money, I saw him walk them at the

00:49:09--> 00:49:15

piano to Florida, Allah says, and they have said, That man, the Most Gracious has taken a son for himself.

00:49:17--> 00:49:20

Verily you have brought forth a great enormity.

00:49:22--> 00:49:26

The heavens are about to split asunder because of it.

00:49:29--> 00:49:34

And the earth is also about to split specimen because of his weather.

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

And the mountains are about to fall and collapse because that's

00:49:41--> 00:49:45

one of the but they have claimed for a man the Most Gracious person

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

and it is not befitting for the Most Gracious that he takes us some very,

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

very far from taking any one of his creation as a son. Allah says in coolamon for some are worth while others

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

There is no one in the entire heavens in the earth, except that they will all come to Allah as a servant.

00:50:09--> 00:50:13

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

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

nakoda song.

00:50:17--> 00:50:21

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

00:50:23--> 00:50:29

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

00:50:32--> 00:50:49

That's just one set of verses, but there are very various verses throughout the program in which Allah addresses this topic of ascribing children to Allah whether they are male or female. So under the limited what am Yulin In fact, a mammal, how do they relate to it in history from season

00:50:51--> 00:50:58

one in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says law had them all in one duration match a superman

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

match

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

and other than semi human on La,

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

yet,

00:51:08--> 00:51:09

for your athlete,

00:51:11--> 00:51:13

Allah says there is no one who is more patient,

00:51:15--> 00:51:18

upon hearing abuse, when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:51:19--> 00:51:25

they claim son for him, and he continues to provide for them and to protect

00:51:27--> 00:51:30

and in another Hadees related by mojari in his

00:51:31--> 00:51:43

pursuit of love law, some of the law and even some of them say is from say, the mobile operator hold the alarm and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah, Adam, what are you coming up with adequate shelter money?

00:51:47--> 00:51:50

For ematic li boohoo Ei follow

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

you or even

00:51:56--> 00:51:57

Kamala can come up

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

with a sense of what will help you be a one on

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

one machine.

00:52:09--> 00:52:13

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

00:52:15--> 00:52:18

Man has written son of Adam has rejected me.

00:52:19--> 00:52:32

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 rights to ask for his belying me and rejecting me.

00:52:34--> 00:52:42

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

00:52:44--> 00:52:54

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

00:52:56--> 00:52:57

And son of Adam,

00:52:59--> 00:53:02

he has abused me and his abusing of me is over.

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

The I have taken a son for myself.

00:53:08--> 00:54:00

What I had to submit the mallet 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 all of our love our head, 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 subhanho wa Taala. And finally, the surah ends with the words when

00:54:00--> 00:54:43

we are going to go ahead and there is no one who is comparable to Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way whatsoever, Allah has no equal and as a last season of verses, or at least it can be cliche was the middle of a sea, that is, there is nothing, not just no one, but Lisa committed, there is nothing like unto Allah and he is the all hearing or seeing there is so much that can be said about sort of por la had. But this is a simple translation in summary meaning of these verses, I pray that lots of water are that enable us to understand the words of Allah and to
