a sociology lesson derived from the surah from the lesson of use of it Salah, Now pay attention to this.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala began the story with a dream. Not so. Yeah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to us that use of saw the sun and the moon and 11 stars bowing down to him. And we said that the Son represented the

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

the mother and the moon represented the father and the 11 stars represented the but we also said that there's a second view, which states that the Son represented the father and the moon represented the mother and the 11 stars represented the brothers. let us study this dream. Based upon the second view, let us say the sun represented the Father, and the moon represented the mother and the 11 stars represented the brothers. We learn a social lesson from this for those who ponder. And that social lesson is like this. When we look at the sun, when the sun is out, what do we feel?

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

warmth? We feel protected, isn't it? Do we feel scared like we feel at night? When the sun is out? people sleep?

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

people sleep

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

in the Arabian Peninsula.

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

What do people do when the sun is out? They earn isn't it? They work and they earn right or wrong? Right. Let us look at a father in the home. When the father is at home. Do we not feel safe?

00:02:12--> 00:02:23

do is they not earning? that's taking place? Yeah. This earning that takes place in the home? Do we not feel the warmth of the father at home? Yeah. When the sun is out. We are the stars.

00:02:25--> 00:02:31

These they they but they not seen? Isn't it? When the father is at home are the children who is running around the Father.

00:02:32--> 00:03:06

They're mostly around the mother, isn't it? And let's look at the moon. The moon is serene, isn't it? It's beautiful to look at, isn't it? Right? is to get the mother in the home. A mother in the home? Isn't she? a means of peace in the home? Right? Doesn't she look after the sanctity of the home? Right? Isn't she? Doesn't she illuminate the home? Isn't Isn't she serene? and nice to look at? Right? Right? And we are the stars when the moon is out?

00:03:08--> 00:03:33

They twinkling isn't it? They are all around the moon, isn't it? Right? We are the children in reference to the mother. Do they spend the day with the Father with the mother? They spend the day with the members of Pamela. Right? The moon takes its light from the sun. So the more effective the father in the home, the more effective the mother in the home.

00:03:35--> 00:04:03

Right? That's what we lead. Right? Remember, this dream was interpreted it was in Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us that the sun represented this and the moon represented that. So if the moon takes his light from the sun, we understand from this step, the more effective the father in the home, the more effective the mother in the home, isn't it? Did we ever think of it this way? Let me tell you another point. What happens if the moon

00:04:04--> 00:04:10

decides to be the sun? And the sun decides to be the moon? What happens? You have an

00:04:12--> 00:04:16

an eclipse, isn't it? You have then what happens?

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

Yes.

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

Well, we might learn that just now. What happens when the sun wants to be the moon and the moon wants to be the sun you have an an eclipse, a lunar eclipse or a solar eclipse. And when the father wants to be the mother in the house, and the mother wants to be the father in the house, you will experience an eclipse as well but a social Eclipse that is called a social Eclipse. And this is what teaches us the importance of everybody playing their own role and when an eclipse happens

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

We are the stars.

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

They know it to be seen, right? When a social Eclipse happens in the home, the children suffered the most. It's the children who suffer the most.

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

And we learned this from

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

the book of Allah subhanho effect.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

For those who

00:05:23--> 00:05:40

ponder for those who deliberate for those who study the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the fee their licola yeah till the only nuha fly attack de Lune atheletic karoun Ephrata for Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:42--> 00:06:25

instructs and commands our intellect and says, Do you not think? Do you not remember, do not ponder? So take from this epic journey, this epic lesson, and understand how relevant The Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is in our lives. Right? I told you at the beginning, that what I want from us, firstly, is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala if you learned Alhamdulillah I hope you did. And if you didn't forgive me, I tried. But the main thing is that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and one of the other objectives I set for you is to inculcate within yourselves a love to ponder over the verses of the Quran. From today, make sure that just as you have time to read the Quran

00:06:25--> 00:06:41

generally set time to ponder over the verses, even if it's one verse a day, even if it's just one verse in the day, and spend that day thinking of the verses and what the verse means and how you can apply it in your life and how many lessons you can learn from it.
