Yeah, Kareem. All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as assistance and we seek His guidance subhanho wa Taala and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds, himself Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the nun can misguide him, and

I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah subhanho wa Taala and he indeed has beautiful names, and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and final messenger. My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, dear viewers, I greet you with the greetings of peace with the greetings of Islam As salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and I welcome you all to yet another episode in our series, in the company of Allah in the company of
Allah. In our last episode, we were discussing how we know about Allah subhanahu wata Allah and we said we know about Allah subhanahu wa to Allah through our natural disposition, and we discussed a little bit about that. And we said, we also know about Allah subhanho wa Taala through looking at his creation subhanho wa taala. And we also touched upon that, and then we were discussing,
knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala through his revelation through the Quran, and through that which he sent to us, via Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the form of the Sunnah. And we discuss some ayat in the book of Allah subhanho wa taala, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala introduced himself as the one who created the skies without pillars, which we can see. And I touched a little bit on a scientific point, which states that the skies are held up by pillars known as pockets of air, pockets of low compression, and I shared with you a light moment some might find it heavy about an aircraft and when that aircraft flies through an air pocket, how it drops a few 100 feet very
quickly, due to no compression. So these air pockets are said to be the pillars that hold up the heavens or hold up the sky. And when we look at this, if we say that Allah subhanahu wa ala said that it is Allah who raised up the sky, without police, which you can see, which could also mean with pillars that you can't see. So the Quran is indeed from Allah subhanho wa Taala at a point of caution, and that is that we should not be or delve too deep in terms of explaining the Quran using, quote unquote scientific facts, these facts that come about as science advances, why because we know that science is built upon a premise known as a high prophecies in that everything is open to change
and effect is established as per knowledge available and technology available at that moment in time if some new technology comes about and learning develops. And then for example, it is said that the previous discovery was a mistake. And we were too deep in explaining the Quran using that scientific fact. It would open the door to those who deny the Quran, those who have enmity with regards to the Quran to spread
their doubts amongst the masses. So the primary source of explaining the Quran is the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam how Allah explained the Quran in the Quran or how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught his companions regarding this Quran. This is the primary source of explaining the Quran. Allah can be held. And in any case, the example that we spoke about in terms of the sky is being held up without police which you can see
is definitely a means of us recognizing the fact that indeed, there is a God because something has to come from something something cannot come from nothing and Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces himself to us in his book, teaching us that it is here subhanho wa taala, who has raised the heavens without pillars, which we can see, it is Allah subhanho wa taala, who subjected the sun and the moon to continue going around in orbit, running its course for a term appointed, and he regulates all affairs, explaining the ayat in detail that we may believe with certain in the meeting of Allah subhanho wa Taala what are the ayat in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala teach us about Allah
subhanho wa Taala Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, or who I loveee my Dell our robo journal, Fe Howrah, CEO and RA, or I mean Cooley, thermo ra te journal Fe has Oh, Jane, it's me. Yo Hoshina Elan
in Viva La Liga, La
Liga homie, co wooden, again, Allah subhanho wa Taala addressing this intellect of ours, this brain of ours, right, we discussed an IRA in the previous episode where Allah says that in the creation of Allah subhanahu Allah assigns for those of understanding here Allah subhanahu Attallah says, and it is he who spread out the earth, and placed there in firm mountains and rivers, and of every kind of fruits he made Zoho Jane if name made these fruits into pears, Allahu Akbar. Let us just take a moment to ponder over this because again, we need to use our intellect. Allah says that everything is made into pairs from fruits. And we can take this to other things as well. If we look at the day,
this day and night, it exists in pairs. If we look at gender, there's male and female. If we look at temperature, there's hot and cold. If we look at taste the sweet and savory, Allahu Akbar, Allah has created everything in pairs. What does this teach us?
This teaches us the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the unity of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that all these tools that you see in front of you, they have come from one perfect source. Allah from visitable JLN Allahu kaha. Ahead, Alfaro the summit and levy lemme le dweller mulaqat, what a miracle Luca, for Allah, that even when you see things existing in pairs, this leads you to the unity of worship, to the unity of Lordship, to the unity in terms of Allah's names, and his attributes and qualities, meaning to heat.
It doesn't just teach us these pairs, that there is our OB, but it these pairs teach us that there is only one Allah worthy of worship, there's only one, they can never be anything else that could create things with such perfection. Indeed, Allah subhanahu wa to Allah is the all powerful May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to witness Allah subhanho wa Taala when we witness the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. This is what we should be brothers and sisters. We shouldn't be people who just see things. We need to be people who witness things. This is email. We shouldn't be people who just hear things. We need to be people who listen to things. This is email. We shouldn't
be people who just know things. We need to be people who understand things. This is email, this is what email does to us. It changes seeing and makes it witness. It changes hearing and makes it listening. It changes knowing and makes it understanding that when you see that mountain you don't see it, you witness it. Why? Because you remember and recognize the creator of that mountain when you see it. When you hear about some of the amazing creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't just hear it, you listen to it, because when you hear it, you remember the Creator who created it and the whole process becomes listening. It's more substantial. It's more substantial. And this is
what Eman makes a person. It removes them from being shallow and it allows them to become substantial, that they live their life always remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala the creation of Allah so
Palo Alto Allah allows us to remember him constantly. And Allah loves those people who remember him. And those gatherings who remember him, Allahu Akbar, Allah has created angels, and given them a job description of roaming the earth looking for those gatherings dedicated towards the remembrance of Allah such as our gathering here. Yes, we're not together, but we virtually together and Allah's mercy is vast, we never restricted and say, insha Allah, our gathering also falls into the remit of the work of these angels, insha Allah, and these angels report to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah ask them when they come to report whilst Allah knows, what did you see? And they say, we saw
your servants remembering you.
And Allah asks them
whilst he knows.
Have they seen me? And Angel say No, Allah they haven't seen? And Allah continues to ask them and he knows, what would they do? Have they seen me?
And this angel say? Have they seen you? Yeah, Allah, they would remember you more vigorously, and more intensely. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what are they asking?
Once Allah knows what they asking? And the angels say they ask you for Paradise. And Allah asks, while he knows the answer to this question, and have they seen paradise? And they say no, yeah, Allah, they haven't seen paradise. So Allah says, whilst he knows, and if they saw paradise, what will happen? The angel said they asking for Paradise will be more vigorous, even more intense.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
And what else do they ask?
And they said, or the angels say, they seek refuge from the hellfire. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah. And Allah says, And have they seen the Hellfire was ALLAH knows the answer to this question. And the angels say no, yeah, Allah. And Allah asks again, whilst he knows the answer to this question, and if they saw the hellfire, what would the situation be? And the angels say they would ask your protection from it even more intensely.
And even more vigorously,
ponder over this point.
sha Allah after the break, we'll continue with this discussion between Allah subhanho wa Taala and the angels as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
