A lot of sodium, calcium and my word for the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim furbish Riley's Sati were Sidley Emery
melissani Jaco Kohli probenecid
inshallah we'll begin from page number 32. Number 21 is battle calamy lillahi tala is battle affirmation off al qalam speech delay for Allah Darla. He is high and exalted, meaning the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has the attribute of speech meaning he speaks, he speaks. So what Allah subhanaw taala center Quran the Quran is Allah's speech, his word.
So, in this topic basically we will cover two things First of all, the attribute of speech and secondly the fact that the Quran is Allah speech and not his creation will call he and his statement woman as the comin Allah he had Isa and who is more truthful than Allah in Hadees. Allah subhanaw taala himself says that he is the most truthful in Hades, what is Heidi's speech? A statement meaning Allah statement is the most correct, it is the most true, it is far from any falsehood from any error. Woman, us the criminal law hadiza woman as the criminal law hippie law, and who is more truthful than Allah infield, clean towel. What does it mean? speech meaning words, so Allah has
words are the most truthful, they're the most correct. So from both of these verses, what do we learn that Allah subhanaw taala he says words he says statements. So speech is affirmed for Allah soprano Tada. What if Allah Allahu, and when Allah said yar Isa or Isa, if memoriam son of Miriam.
So the fact that Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, if Allah Allah who, when Allah said, on the day of judgment, also Allah will say, so again, what does this prove that Allah subhanaw taala speaks? And notice over here, yeah, Isa, or Isa? What does this imply that Allah subhanaw taala will speak to a Saudi Salaam directly on the Day of Judgment, right? And yeah, our Isa or Isa, he's calling him he's addressing him directly, which means that he saw this and I was being addressed, which means that he can hear the words of Allah. So what does it mean? That the speech of Allah is with what with words, speech that is audible, that can be heard by the one for whom the speech is
What amount and it was complete? Can a matter of big the word of your Lord cite the con In truth, where are the law and in justice, the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth, as well as in justice, meaning whatever Allah subhanaw taala says, it will come true, it will always be according to reality, and are the law justice, meaning it will also be always always fair. His words are always just so Allah subhanaw taala speech it is free of lies, it is free of falsehood, it is free of any injustice, any kind of oppression.
What a mad Kalamata because, say the con, what are the law?
What can lemon law Moosa, that Lima and Allah spoke to Moosa? It's a claim, the claim is muster. And why is this being said at the end of the ayah, the claim to emphasize that it was proper speech, it was what you call speech. So this means that musar in Islam, he was spoken to, by Allah subhanaw taala. Allah subhanaw taala addressed him directly. So mozzarella Salaam heard the words of Allah. So the claim it was a complete column, because you will never call column, a conversation in which you cannot hear the other. Right? You don't know what they're saying. So what kind of Allahu Moosa the cleaner men home men column Allah, among them are those whom Allah spoke to meaning among the
messengers are those whom Allah subhanaw taala directly spoke to?
Well imagine a Musa Lima Katarina, and when musala salaam came for our meeting for our appointment, waka Lama hora boo, and his Lord spoke to him and he spoke to him as speech is done. Whenever they know who and we called him, min janitorial. Amen from the right side of the tour. The mountain tour worker robinair una de
And we drew him near in private conversation, meaning Allah subhanaw taala conversed with musala salaam, privately musala Salah, heard those words heard Allah speech, but he was the only one who heard them.
You understand? Meaning, even if there was somebody nearby there wasn't. But even if there was anybody nearby, they wouldn't be able to hear those words. Why? Because that speech was directed to who? Only Masada, Santa Monica robinair. Who Nigeria.
Now notice over here in all of these verses what is being mentioned again and again how Allah subhanaw taala spoke to musar Listen, right now the first ayah which is mentioned what column Allahu setac Lima. You remember how the I looked at if the people have to leave what they did with this, if
they change the IRA, what did they do? calama la hermosa that Moses spoke to Allah because they did not believe that Allah subhanaw taala can speak. So they change the ayah but it's amazing how Shahada slam brings one eye after the other. Right? specific to who musala Islam, right Allah subhanaw taala speaking to musasa them directly that which I now will you deny which I am now will you distort you cannot okay if you distort what column along moussaka crema How can you distort well imagine a Muslim Katarina waka la hora boo, how can you distort that? Likewise when are they now who we call them? Can this be changed? No. So which I can be tonight which I can be altered? What is
Nether of buka and when your Lord called called out to who Musa masala Salaam and it till como Valley mean that go to the wrongdoing people. We didn't go to fit our own and his people who sadly Sam was spoken to by Allah when I dealt with him out of Blue Man, and their Lord called out to both of them. alum and her coma did I not forbid both of you until coma shadow from this tree? So this Quran was directed to Adam alayhis salaam. So what does this ayah teach us? Allah subhanaw taala also spoke to Adam right, he said,
in a hadith which is authentic, in a sense, Allah to say how we learned that when Allah subhanaw taala created Adam or they said him and blew the roof into him, the roof when it reached his nose, at the time he sneezed. And the first words that Adam or Sam said, were Alhamdulillah Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala said to him,
Allah, may Allah have mercy on you.
So again, Allah subhanaw taala spoke to otherwise and I'm also not just once but multiple times, where Yama unity him and the day when he will call them them, meaning who people fail kulu then he will say Mother a job to mousseline or what is it that you responded to the messengers? meaning how did you respond to the call of the prophets that were sent to you? So what do we learn in this ayah? That Allah will speak to people?
Right, the omens the different nations on the Day of Judgment, because he will call them to account he will ask them, What did your messengers conveyed to you and what did you do in return to the messengers? How did you respond to them? In a Hades also we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Man men come in ahead in Illa wasa you can limo hola who Yeoman Kiana, there is none amongst you except that Allah will speak to you on the Day of Judgment. And obviously this is referring to those who believe because there are those people who lie you can remove them Allah, Allah will not speak to them. Allah will not look at them, Allah will not purify them.
But those who do believe those who do worship Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will definitely speak to them on the Day of Judgment.
And this is a fact about Allah, Allah speaks. He is Allah He is Rob. He is our God. We asked him and he responds when we worship Allah subhana wa tada when we recite Fatiha also, Allah responds ojibwa darwaza, Derrida Don, what is response through speech? Right, it is always through speech. So, who does not speak?
Who does not speak Think about it, who cannot speak
inanimate objects right, such as idols, statues, they do not speak but our Lord Allah, He speaks, he hears and he answers. And this is what establishes the beautiful connection between the master and his servant communication.
Communication because think about it
If you're speaking to somebody and there's no answer, how does that feel?
You're talking and there's no response. The other is silent, they're quiet, they're unresponsive. It's not a good feeling at all. Allah subhanaw taala speaks. And notice how, you know, when a person speaks to Allah, meaning he makes the law,
that Allah is a Sameer, he is a Mooji. He responds, even, you know, this is something so amazing. You recited about her four times in every prayer. And each time you pray your sight, sort of right there, Allah answers you. It's a meeting with Allah. This is why when Moses and I went to the poor, what is that called McCarthy appointment? It was an appointment, come speak to your Lord, and your Lord will speak to you. He will guide you, he will tell you what to do, he will give you direction. And what was Mr. Edison I'm given over there, the total, right? So this is the communication between the master and his servant. Right? And think about it, a person who is you know, very honorable, or
very important. What do you want? You want to speak to them? Right? And how much you try to get even a few minutes with them?
Isn't it, you call in advance, you speak to their, you know, Assistant, or whoever, you try to get five minutes from them, 10 minutes for them. 15 minutes from them, right? You just want to be able to speak to them directly. But even in that conversation, you know, you feel afraid you feel rushed. Alright, Allah subhanaw taala, the greatest of those who are great, Allahu Akbar,
the one who knows you the most, the one who loves you the most the one who understands you the most. He speaks to you. If you speak to him, you will respond to his call today, Allah will speak to you also.
And it's also amazing that, you know, only a lot of panel data can do this, like so many people are speaking to him.
And he hears all of them. He listens to all of them. He responds to every single one of them. And it's amazing how sometimes your wish or your concern or your question is still in your heart. You haven't been able to even express it.
But Allah subhanaw taala, he responds to that.
Now remember that a lot of panels are speech, it is qalam. That is healthy, that is real. All right, it is real speech. It is speech that is in reality, and he speaks whenever he wills. And however he wills as He wills.
Whenever he wills, meaning he doesn't need anybody's permission. However he wills, He can give a command, he can give a prohibition, he can give good news, he can give warning. It's up to him. However he wills
as He wills and his speech is with words with her roof with kalimat. And with a voice that is audible, because if it was not with a voice, then how would Messiah Salaam? Here he is, Lord, you understand? How would he he wouldn't be able to now the following verses are about the Quran. The evidence that are on is also the speech of Allah, the verses that we learned so far there in general about the attribute of speech. Now the following verses are specifically about the Quran, that the Quran is also the speech of Allah, it is not a creation,
what in a huddle minute mushrikeen. And if anyone amongst the idolaters is the Joker, he seeks your protection for a God who then give him protection had the yes smile cunnamulla until he hears the speech of Allah, you remember the context of this ayah Surah Tauba right that when the mustachian were given four months grace period, that in this time, either you believe accept Islam, leave your idolatry or if you don't wish to, then you have to leave the Arabian Peninsula. Right. So what was that that after those months are passed, they're over. If any mystic says I need some more time, I need some more time. Then somebody has to give them protection, meaning a Muslim has to give him
protection. So give him protection. Have a smile, cut him Allah until he can hear the word of Allah, meaning he can hear the follow on he can learn the Quran he can come to know about what the Quran says. So what is kurama law over here? The Quran so remember that the Quran is Allah speech, the many times we say things like Allah is the author of the Quran. No, we don't say that he's the author. Remember that human beings are authors. Being an author of a book means that you have written a draft and you have researched
and you have found errors and you have fixed them and you have reviewed it and you have asked others to review it. Being an author instantly implies what your your weakness but your limited knowledge
Allah subhanaw taala spoke the Quran, he said the Quran
you understand, so the Quran is Kalam Allah,
the next I will call the character for you coming home and a group among them among who the people of the book? Yes morona cunnamulla they hear the speech of Allah and after hearing it so many you had reformer who then they alter it, they distort it mimbar the man or kalu after they have understood it well homie are alone while they know.
So over here, what has been mentioned how the people of the book they would hear the words of revelation to toto. And what would they do after that? distort the words they would change the words, while they knew the correct meaning? What would they do? They would still distort it.
So again, kurama law, what is kurama? law? The Torah, what is that? The book that Allah subhanaw taala said, right and obviously the same applies to the Quran. The next if you read una and you bet De Luca la mala they wish to change the words of Allah, the words of Allah, what does that refer to the hold on this is basically about the monastic thing, that I when they did not participate in certain expeditions, they were told that from now on, you cannot participate in any expedition with the prophets of the loveliest. You stayed behind this time now you always must stay behind. So Allah subhanaw taala warned the believers that next time that you will go what will happen they will come
and they will say we want to come along with you because they see you know, some expected benefit booty victory. So, Allah subhanaw taala says, You read una and you bet De Luca la mala they wish to change the words of Allah, Allah said they shall not accompany you. And now they want to contradict that by accompanying you. So calama law refers to what? The verses in the Quran so again, the speech of Allah, meaning the Quran, polenta, Tabby Runa say never Will you follow us meaning never will you come along with us gadalla Come follow him in common. This is how Allah subhanaw taala said before meaning this is what he instructed concerning you that you shall not be allowed to accompany the
believers again. The next is what Luma Ooh, here la come in keytab Arabic and recite what has been revealed to you from the book of your Lord. Lamb obey the law de Cali Mati there is none who can change his words, which words the Quran the next ayah in the handle, and indeed this Quran yokoso Allah Bani Israel el acara lady whom fee of telephone yakusoku it narrates, I love any sort of into the money in a thora most of that in which they use two different meaning the differences the disputes that they had, the Quran clarifies them, but notice the word over here. Also.
It narrates, it relates, it's a narration and narration is always held in speech. Right. And if it's in a written form, it's because that speech was recorded, it was written down, storytelling, storytelling, that means the story is told, it is spoken, it is said correct. And then eventually they are recorded and they're written down. Now, notice how in the IR before what through here in a common keytab Arabic the Quran is also called kita. Now, when we think of Akita, we think of something physical, right? And something that is physical, I mean, it's Mark, Luke, it's creation. So then how do we reconcile this Quran is called canavalia. And it's also called keytab. So is it
Luke? Is it a creation? Or is it a la speech? What is it? Remember that keytab book, the way we understand keytab as book this is not how it was always understood before when the Quran was being revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was it given in a book form? Did it even exist in a book form during the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? No, it was recorded, but where leaves barks, parchment leather, right, so on and so forth. And then eventually what happened it was recorded in book form must have right of have sort of the long run, remember? So that came much later during the lifetime the profits of the bodies and there was no keytab as a physical form.
Kitab literally means it's from Caterpillar and what does that mean? Gemma? It means gotta means to write to record, but cut also means Gemma to collect together together. So the reason why it's called keytab is because, because in it, you know, many, basically it's a collection of Allah subhanaw taala speech, right his messages that he sent to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam now
Why is it that we are, you know, going into this? Why is it that the chakras and even taymiyah has dedicated an entire topic to this, that the Quran is the column of Allah? Don't we already believe in that? We already believe in that 100 Allah. But remember that many disagreements occurred surrounding this issue between lucerna and some other schools of thought such as the morth azido. Right. And this created a lot of, you can say, division in the oma as well as at the time when this controversy began. There was a lot of fitna that resulted because of this controversy. And that fitna, obviously it converted into great persecution of the scholars of Islam. And they stood firm
on this belief that no Quran is not a creation, it is in fact, the speech of Allah. Now, remember that halifa Moon, he was convinced by the mortality scholars that the Quran is the most look. And you know how sometimes it happens that if you believe in something, and then you want others to agree with you, you say something and you want others to agree with you. Many times it happens that you accept the difference of opinion that okay, you know, you believe what you believe in, and I believe in what I believe in live and let live, we agree to disagree.
But this became a matter of pride for this halifa. And he did not tolerate any scholar saying that the Quran was the speech of Allah, He demanded from every scholar, that every scholar must say the Quran is the creation of Allah. And he's threatened that if anyone does not comply, they will be killed, they will be assassinated. So what happened? majority of the scholars, they said what he wanted them to say, even though they did not believe in that they said it. Why? Because they said, We have an excuse here, this is a matter you know, in which we are being coerced, we are being forced, and if you can say a kalama of copper, to save your life, you know, that right? A person can
even say a column of copper to save his life, then why can we not say Kalima have not confirmed, but something less than that to save our life? You understand? So this is the reasoning that they had. And some other scholars, what they did, was that they showed to me that they were saying the Quran is a fluke, but they didn't actually mean it. So for example, they said, the total, the Injeel, the Quran, these are the creation of Allah,
you understood from my action, that they counted on their fingers, Torah, Injeel, Koran, these. Now when they said these, they didn't mean in their hearts in their minds, or on tala Injeel, they meant fingers.
These meaning My fingers are the creation of Allah, you understand. So they did this, to save their lives. And at the same time, they did not want to say, you know, that, that they believed that the Quran was a creation, but at the same time, they had to save their life somehow. Now, do scholars even even humble and Mohammed even knew, they refused to listen to what more and they said, the honest speech, it is not created, and this at this very boldly, very confidently, and they knew exactly what was going to come. And they said that
they didn't have an excuse to say anything otherwise. Because when you're allowed to say, a kalama of comfort to save your life, that's when it's because of a personal reason.
And they said, this is not a personal reason, this is a matter of the [???]tier. If an ordinary person says okay, caranas mahalo whatever. In my heart, I believe it is. Calum, if an ordinary person says that, no big deal. But when a scholar will say that
you understand it will have different implications. So they said, this is not a, you know, a personal matter. This is an issue about the preservation of the Dean of the [???]tier. And when you have to preserve the dean, than even if your life is at risk,
it doesn't matter.
then in this situation, what is necessary jihad,
just like the Sahaba, for the protection for the preservation of the dean. They put their necks forward. Right? They put their lives at risk to preserve the dean. They could have said, No, no, you know what, we're just gonna stay at home. You don't really have to give up your life, you know, but you know, and Muhammad even knew, they stood firm.
Mohammed never know. He was assassinated, he was killed.
I'm not even humble. He was tortured and he was persecuted. But he did not give up. He
insisted he debated, he argued he was imprisoned. He was physically beaten, he was publicly humiliated, but he did not give up. And you know what the whole oma was with him because people only said Quran was Muslim out of fear of mood.
Right. But when they saw
create giant really standing so firm in this time of trial, they supported him. So this is why the scholars say that Allah subhanaw taala, preserved Islam through Abu Bakar, during the days of litho, during the days of Apostasy, and through even humble during the days off me, I mean, the great trial, the great test,
because if I did not stand firm at this, then what would happen?
majority of the people would be marked as ugly, they would believe that Orion is created. Now, what's the big deal? Why does it really matter? If a person believes is on is created, or it is not created? Does it really make much of a difference? What's the big deal over here? You know, for us, we think, Oh, it's no big deal. But to believe that the Quran is creation, that has many implications. If a person says or on his creation, then you know what he's implying. First of all, he's rejecting parts of the Quran. Because Allah himself says columella columella cunnamulla, isn't it? So when Allah himself says on his his speech, and we say, Quran is Maha Luke, then who are we
Allah statement, right? We are contradicting that we are opposing that. Secondly, if we say that called on his creation, think about it with the Quran, hold the same value, the same, you know, sacredness and sanctity? Wouldn't you know, then a person will say, you will get called on his creation, this table is creation, you are creation, I am creation, we are all creation.
The Quran, if it has value, if it is important to us, if we consider it holy, why is that? So? Because it is a less speech. one ayah from the Quran is enough as evidence Why? Because it is from Allah, it is his speech, and the statement of another person, what does that matter?
You understand, the Quran would lose its value, its supremacy, if we were to say that it is a creation, because you see, creation is subject to change,
isn't it, you can change it.
Like, for example, if there is a table, it's brown, you can paint it black, you can paint it white, you can change it, a lot of panel data has given us that ability, he has given us that Liberty even right, that we can change the creation in the sense that not the kind of, you know, changing that is from shavon, but changing in the sense that fashioning it in a way that suits us. There is a piece of wood, you can change that big log into a table. Can you do that? Yes. Because that suits you better, that serves you better that is of more use to you. Creation is subject to change, it can be changed, it can be altered, it can be negated, it can be refuted, and if we treated the Quran, like
any other creation of Allah subhanaw taala, then what would that mean to change it? And this is the reason why we see that people who believe that the Quran is created, they're the ones who delved into the reef. They're the ones who did not respect the Quran. Think about it. How can a person have the guts to change the words of Allah? What columella Musa Lima, if this is how it has been recited always a person changing the hudl
what gives them the confidence to do that? Because they don't have that much respect for the Koran. Why don't they have that respect for the Quran? Because they don't believe it's the speech of Allah. They think it's the creation. They can change the words is the word to Stoller. They can say things like yeah, Rahim Rahman, produce a Salah. It's all the same, it's just a difference of hoof.
You see how all of these problems began.
You see how all of this began from where from this corrupt belief, from not giving the hook of the Quran, not respecting the Quran, not treating it as qalam of Allah, rather treating it as if it was an ordinary creation of Allah subhanaw taala
Likewise, if a person says the Quran is Muslim, then he's implying that every attribute of Allah is Muslim.
how Allah subhana wa tada has clearly said calama law
If a person says column, you know, when a person speaks, you know, when someone speaks, then that is Luke then you're saying okay, is Rama is Mark Luke and his other is Mark Luke and his of his mouth Luke, basically, what is the person saying that, that there is no difference between the creator and the creation?
Then a person loses respect for Allah subhanaw taala also, and this is a reason why people have dared to say things about Allah subhanaw taala, which when we hear we shut her, how could a person even think like that? How could a person even say something like that? So, it all begins with the corruption of this belief. And this is the reason why Ahmed, he stood so firmly on this, that the Quran is not a fluke, it is
treated as allas. Kalam
and the thing is that speech when we believe that Allah subhanaw taala he spoke the Quran, the Quran is his speech, it has a lot of value, because any speech, when does it have importance and value?
When, because of who has said it? You understand? Sometimes it happens that the same thing is being said by two people.
Two people are saying the exact same words, but you tend to listen to one person more. Why?
Why? Because they're more important to you. Your mother tells you something and your husband tells you the same thing.
Now the one whom you love more, you listen to them. Right? So the Quran is Allah speech, it has value because it is a Love Canal. And remember that his column is different from his Muslim.
Because Allah says in the Quran, Allah, the whole hongkou one ambu
Hulk and amor, both are mentioned separately, a distinction has been made between creation and command.
ls command is what the command that he gave that he spoke. So for example, the Quran. So the Quran is not Muslim, you cannot mix this up. You have to maintain this difference that Allah subhanaw taala himself has taught us, Hulk is one thing, and another is something else. Clear. So you understand why this is a big deal. Okay, anything you'd like to say before we continue? That the creation what happens to it over time, it loses its importance, its value, right? For example, a person when they're alive, when they're working, they have a lot of importance. They have a lot of value, but when they die 100 years later, 200 years later, who knows them? Who remembers them?
Hardly anybody? Maybe their name is mentioned somewhere, but hardly anybody. Right? But the Quran is Allah speech with the passage of time, it is still relevant, it is still important. It still must be respected, and it still must be followed. Okay, why is it that the Morteza Lee did not accept this honest cunnamulla? Because they did not believe in the attributes of Allah soprano.
You see, the people of Kathleen, what is their problem, the main problem is they don't want to accept allas attributes because they say if you believe that Allah speaks, he has mercy he hears he sees, then you are resembling him to the creation. I'm saying that this one corrupt belief that people have or assume that that
has dissolved in their eyes for them, the whole structure of Islam, the values and the respect of Allah subhanaw taala. And his design is all his attributes, everything is kind of like, you know, just you, you pull one brick, and the whole building false. So how important it is to, to believe even the correct way. Yes. And that's what I find. When I come in here. You think that you know everything, the last one, the last one, and you know, but living in, in this age, and today. And here. It's so important to note the correct value, the correct belief and how to enact it, and how to defend it even later. Now remember that when the Muslims interacted with other nations, other
people, they came across, obviously different religions, and also different ideologies and the people of philosophy, right when their writings were translated into Arabic, just like people do today. They wanted to include that as part of Islam. Because philosophy, you know, was the in thing. So they wanted to show that Quran Islam does not contradict philosophy.
You understand? And in order to make that at
subtable within Islam, they came up with evidences from the Quran and they changed basically the deen
and that's exactly what happens today.
You know, whatever is the in thing, or whatever people believe in or what the masses want you to do you try to incorporate that within the religion. But Allah Subhanallah Jamal, they remain firm upon the deen liahona lo Mata let him
you understand. And this is the reason why aqeedah of Ellucian nojima. You know, it came into being, because at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were no terms such as the Hadees of three categories will do here to be a smell was a fad. You don't find these terms in Hadees, do you come across terms such as the athlete of the Hurry, that will you don't come across these terms? Right. So they were developed later on by the unloosen, ella jemar, in order to defend the religion.
You understand about the changing of the theme how people have done that, we actually do not need to do that. And we can still be inclusive. And in those days when the solar selasa said that I'm sent for the red and the black and the white and the brown and everybody. And at that time, everybody was included, Islam prevailed. So we really do not need to do any such thing. The Christians incorporated the rituals of the people who already existed here, about the tree and the Christmas tree, if you ask them, they really don't know, imitating other nations, right? So that's exactly what some Muslim started doing. So I was thinking how important it is for every one of us to
continue to purify this acleda this aspect of Quran Allah Subhana Allah, it is only because of this, this issue with our APA that we don't consider the column of Allah as the column of Allah, whether that column is in our phones these days, you know, it's not in the book form always now in our gadgets, or if it is in a book form, we don't we don't respect it. We don't give it it's how, and what you mentioned about you know, taking an oath via the Quran, swearing an oath by the Quran. Remember that because Puranas Allah is canon, it is his cipher.
It is from him to him It will return okay. This is why it is correct to swear an oath by the Quran. But you better swear an oath that is correct. Because you know, when a person lies, you know, placing their hands on Yes, I swear, such and such and such and such. Why is it that they're not being honest because it is only a book. It's a book.
But if we understood that this is Allah speech, this is his attributes, it has come from him. It is his, then we would never dare lie, while placing our hand on the Quran. Now, the last one hour tomorrow, the belief is concerning the Quran, that it is Columbia Law. It is a speech of Allah. It is Muna zelle it has been revealed. It is laid mahalo. It is not creation, men who better from him It came meaning Allah subhanaw taala is the one who said the Quran by the bed is what initiation. So he initiated a meeting he said it
what he lay here to do, and to him It will return. Because you know that towards the end of time, when the only people that will remain are the most corrupt, and what will happen, the Koran will be taken away it will be lifted up. So what la yo do.
Number 22 is battle affirmation often Xena or any revelation of the Quran minilite Allah from Allah the Exalted
the fact that the Quran has been revealed by Allah, it was sent down by Allah. So first of all, we believe that it is a speech. And secondly, we believe that because Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Allah, the highest one, he sent the Quran down his pocket he sent it, and through through debris. In a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that you can never return to Allah meaning draw close to him with anything better than that which has come from him.
yarny and so if you want to draw close to Allah, then you better hold on to that which has come from him.
And what is that have the lion Mateen the Quran? He sent it down. Well, Callie and his statement, what are their keytab on Anza. Now who knows
About icon and this is a book and now we have revealed it. We have sent it down mobile icon it is full of Baraka. Notice einzelner who not Hakuna?
We sent it down not that we created it because it is a speech.
The next is low Angela hadden, Anna Allah jobelan la Ada who harsher on Moodle sedan Mihashi Attila. If we had sent down this pole on upon a mountain, surely you would see that mountain, Kashi on caution, fearful, humbling, with a sudden, shattering, breaking apart, Mihashi Attila out of the fear of Allah.
Now in this ayah what is mentioned, a mountain. And if you think about it on this earth, one of the biggest creations is what? mountains, their tallest right there, they're so tall, they're so huge, they're so heavy.
And yet a mountain does not have the capacity to bear the Quran.
bear the weight of the Quran.
Now, if you play soccer on on a mountain, with a mountain shattering
meaning a physical book must have no. So what does it mean that the Quran is not a fluke? Because if it was more fluke, than the mountain can for sure, bear the weight of the most How
can it not? It can in fact, it can bear the weight of many heavy things, so many trees, so many buildings, so many people so many huge boulders, it can bear that weight.
If the Quran was mahalo, the mountain could have surely carried it easily. But the Quran is not Muslim. It is Allah speech. And this is the reason why even a mountain could not carry the weight of the Quran.
If the Quran was sent upon a mountain, that mountain would shatter from the fear of Allah.
Next I would either but then, if and when we change and a a mechanic, I attend in the place of an IRA, meaning we substitute a verse in place of a verse and this is referring to That's right. Well, well Arlen will be my unison. And Allah knows best about that which which he has sent down unizin
Tenzin Carlo, they say meaning the people, the machinery cane, what is their response to this abrogation in number and time after that you are prophets and a lot of them are a fabricator, you're inventing this, you come up with something new, so you change it, but to whom layer rather most of them do not know, called say Nasrallah, who he has brought it down, who knows the pure spirit, meaning jabril may Robic from your Lord, how will help in truth, why lose a bit alladhina amanu in order to keep firm those people who believe well who then it's a guidance rubbish law and a good news led muslimeen for those who submit.
So again, in these verses what is mentioned in both of these verses the fact that Quran is Tenzin, what are the nurlan will unknowingly okolona in a limo who Basha? Certainly we know that the people say that a human being teaches him meaning this Quran. Allah says listen, the language a little whodunnit LA, which they refer to is our Jimmy, it is non Arab, meaning that man is
not the person about whom they're saying that he teaches Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Who is he? He's not an Arab. Well, had I listen, I'll be your movie. And this Quran, it is in a language, which language I'll be Arabic That is moonbeam. That is clear. So again, it is emphasized in so many verses of the Quran is his speech that he revealed. Tenzin. So first of all, Kalam, and then Tenzin that he revealed through gibreel to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and this belief that Allah is the one who sent the Quran.
Of course, we believe in this But should we affirm this belief regularly? The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he talked about
that when you go to your bed at night, then perform will do as you do for prayer. And then lie down on your right side, and then say, Allahumma Islam to wedgie. He like what for what to
Li, Li Li, Li Li, rotten rotten egg lamb Lj lm in German karela elec Allahumma Amman to be kitabi Carla D. and Zelda, what big NaVi Kala de
O Allah, I believe in the book that you sent you revealed, and in the Prophet whom you sent.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, make these your last words, meaning don't say anything after this, then only sleep. So this is a belief that we must affirm repeatedly over and over again. Because when you continue to remind yourself this hold on is from Allah. Here's my lord speech, it is his message, it is his command, then you continue to give it, it's your right. But when we forget it, that this hold on is from a lot and it loses its importance and value.
You know, then we say, yah, yah, yah, Quran for every hand in every heart. Yes, it should be for everybody. Except for me, which is why we don't read it regularly. And we don't recite it regularly. We don't reflect on it. I mean, think about it, any work of Deen, we're doing in any capacity.
in any capacity, we need to check ourselves, what is our connection with the book of Allah.
Because if we don't have a proper connection with the book of Allah, than the work that we're doing,
it lacks spirit.
Think about it. When we work at an institute, in any capacity, and the Institute, the motto is, the mission is what put on for all in every hand in every heart.
And we're coming every day, every other day working here. And we don't even recite Quran ourselves.
We don't even reflect on the Quran ourselves.
We don't love the Quran.
We don't reflect on its meanings, then what kind of service is this?
What kind of service is this thing? So we really need to reflect on ourselves. What kind of work am I doing? What kind of connection do I have? With the book of Allah? a Latina, Latina, wilkey, tablet, Luna? Who? How could Isla de la mina? And and, and if you don't believe in something passionately, yourself, you cannot pass it on?
If you're not convinced yourself, you cannot give it to others,
Why is it that some salespeople they're so good at, you know, making their sales? Why? Because they're convinced, or they show at least that they're convinced. They're passionately talking about a particular product,
that it has changed their life, and it has helped them so much.
So they convince you,
that's what you need as well. Just the other day, somebody told me about how this person, you know, they went to this particular Institute to study and they were asked that what made you come, they said that I know of this person who this is what this is a total brat, okay? This is how they describe them. Extremely, you know, arrogant and rude and whatever, didn't care about anybody, just into their own life, basically obsessed with themselves and just into their own life. And this person went to that Institute for one year. And they completely changed.
That they completely changed when I saw them after one year. You know, he's like, I knew that he went to the right place.
So I wanted to go as well, that if they can change so drastically, and there's hope for me also, then what is going on in this place is definitely good.
So the best, you know, means of selling
yourself. This is how you convince somebody.
But if we don't have a connection with the Quran, ourselves, and I'm talking about every single individual over here,
if we don't love the Quran, ourselves, if we don't care about the Quran, ourselves, if we don't recite it, then how can we give it to others? How can we serve others? How can we passionately work for the cause of a loss of habitat? What do you think, drove the companions? What? It was a book of Allah?
Right? It was a verses of the Quran that were in their hearts, that that kept them going on and on and on, and serve the dean.
When the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was in the Battle of Isaiah, and you remember the Battle of Isaiah
How was it?
nerves, the Battle of nerves, right? Because enemy from everywhere, inside hypocrites behind the Jews. Beyond the trenches, we should again, think about an enemy at every level.
Within behind in front, everywhere. And imagine if a city is completely blocked. I mean, there's no food coming in going out no business nothing.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said on the day of his app for color, so he said Allahumma munzee lol kita. surreal, he said sab Allahumma zimmel Azad, Allah Zim home was until home, Oh Allah, the One who revealed the Book.
You see what he mentioned over here? Well, Allah, you will reveal the book, you sent this guidance.
This powerful guidance said he or herself, swift in calling to account, Oh Allah,
defeat the defeat the zap and shake them.
So this is a belief that we need to remind ourselves off. And this is something that we need to say at times of need, you know, when we need a lesser panel TARDIS help
us wondering, what does that mean? You know, where did it come from? though? You know, you have to tell it, you know, it came down from a lesson now she also knows that, you know, alive high above me, I think a lot of words are so precise, and also prove that it can only come from Allah. It's so precise.
It's so precise. It's so beautiful. It's so powerful, so powerful, that, you know, so little to one of the companions. What did he say that I heard the prophets a lot is and reciting these verses. In mulgrave, he had come from Makkah, to speak to him about the prisoners of war. And when he heard the first few verses of pseudo tutorial, he felt as though you know, his heart would rip apart. And he knew that the Quran was so powerful. So when we believe that the Quran is Allah speech, it is his speech, the Lord of the world, he spoke the Quran, he said this Quran?
These are his words.
How would we treat the Quran? How would we treat the kuranda? If we truly believed in this, and if we felt this?
How would we treat it, our attitude would change, right?
We would have more respect more love, more willing to accept it, every idea of it every command of it,
it would hold a lot of importance to us, it wouldn't just be a textbook for us.
Because those who study the Quran, memorize it or study its meanings. It said after some time, we start treating the book of Allah as a textbook, the way we quote it, and the way we write the meanings, and the way we put the Quran in our bag or take it out, or, you know, we study it as if it's an ordinary textbook.
This is something we need to remember. Yes, we are studying the book of Allah, but to remember it is his column.
But the intensity of the words whom is it from, we don't try to explain to them and that is that it has to be done with like, what's your especially because tell them the Quran is being played. But why why that's so important. And teaching children from a young age, you know, to respect the book have a lot of respect his column.
Anyway, let's continue. Yes, I do want to say
that you said and people recorded their readings, the recorded word was the card that recorded and they go back to it often, and they look at it and they view it, and they're amazed. And it's like they're really reliving their past. And I was just reflecting on this compared to like you said, if you really reflect that this is the column of Allah, then really wouldn't you want to learn exactly what he said what he meant, you would want to learn Arabic fluently, you would want to teach it to your children, you want to memorize it, you wouldn't want to forget any word of it. I was even reflecting on the fact when you go for Hajj, how you're in a state of a hum so you know insha Allah,
May Allah give us all tofik to memorize his column, but I was thinking it would actually put you in the state of a haram if you think about it, in the sense you will start thinking these things are Haram, I can do it, these things are something I should do. Like you know, it will have that kind of empowerment on you. Because even nowadays, like if you look at the gems that are found in the earth, nobody can make it the value is so great. They preserve it in the museums, or like a very wealthy person will buy it and they'll wear it with their best clothes and the best party in the best form like they wouldn't just read on dirty clothes and like you know, having not taken a shower. So how
do we treat like how do we recite the Quran? How do we treat others who are reciting Quran and
Even the person who dies if there's multiple people who died and we studied that the face the person who will be entered first facing the right side will be the Heartless so now like everything now that you're mentioning all these details, all the you know like
why the Quran is so important? Why is there so much for Lila virtue attached to memorizing the Quran and learning the Quran and reciting the Quran, why so much reward and emphasis because it is.
It is a speech of Allah subhanaw taala.
The next number 23 is where to affirmation of look at seeing of who, meaning the believers meaning the believers seeing, looking at who are by whom their Lord, when Yokoyama on the Day of Judgment,
the proof that the believers will see their Lord on the Day of Judgment, they will see him they will see his beautiful face will Callie and his statement, would you even Lila Isla beha Now,
some faces that they will be now a little radiant, happy. Why? Because a lot of behind now
they will be looking at their Lord.
On the day of judgment. Some people their faces will become beautiful. Why? Because Illa Robbie Han Allah
because they will be looking at Allah soprano dark seeing Allah subhanaw taala will bring such happiness, such content, such relief and such joy that their faces will transform. Their faces will become beautiful.
And this is very natural, that when you're happy inside your content inside, you know you have something to feel very, very happy about instantly that happiness is expressed on your face.
And it turns into beauty. It beautifies the face happiness beautifies the face sadness, anger, hatred, jealousy, what does that do to the face? Makes it ugly? Makes it ugly?
A lot of be Hannah Leo. This is why at another place in the Quran. Allah says follow call whom Allah Who shall identical young will acaba rotten? Wa Surah nebra beauty on the faces surah happiness and joy in the heart.
Seeing the last panel data will bring these two things joy in the heart and beauty on the face. And notice how would you will be now little? And would you elaborate behind
the faces we'll be looking
when you're looking at something with your face, what does it mean that your face has turned towards it right? And obviously, what is it on your face with which you see your eyes? So this has Rukia that has happened?
Really, in reality, actually. And he There is no doubt about this. believers will actually truly see their Lord
because it's seeing with the face meaning seeing with the eyes.
There's another kind of seeing which is with the heart.
But that is the double that is the fucker This is looking with the eyes in reality.
And there's no doubt about this because the Quran mentions it and there's so many bodies that prove this also.
Next is our Ll r r e ke n Zoo upon the couches. They'll be looking meaning lol Jenna, there'll be sitting reclining on their couches, on their seats. And they'll be looking looking at what that is not mentioned.
But are they are
they're sitting and is looking and looking and looking. What does it show that they're looking for a very long time?
What is it that you can look at for a very long time? Or that you can look at again and again you don't get tired of looking?
Something that pleases you?
Something that brings you joy, which is why some people will watch a movie once and then twice, and then again and again and again. And you wonder
Haven't you seen it already? Why do you need to see it again? What's the answer? I like it.
For you. It's a big waste of time two hours in a movie.
And if you've seen it three times, that means you've spent six hours of your life watching this stuff. And if you've seen it four times, you've spent eight hours of your life watching this stuff.
But for them it's not a waste of time. Why? They like it. They love it.
What you love what you like what brings you joy. You don't get
tired of looking at
something that makes you glad you don't get tired of looking at it? So in Jannah and even on the Day of Judgment, the believers will look at many things that will bring them joy
from Jenna to their reward to one another.
And the greatest of all sites, we'll be looking at Allah soprano who was the greatest and most delightful site are the Araki Yun Loon.
And remember that on the day of judgment in the Hereafter, just like every other ability, or the capacity of a human being, vision will also become very, very strong.
We learned that a person will be able to see as far as 2000 miles. Think about it, have you here in this world for a person to look at something that is even two inches away? No, because of their weakness in their vision, it's difficult, two feet away it becomes difficult they need their glasses
do 1000 miles away even if something is as far as that it will be easy for them to look at. This is what because and once a person enters gender, there is no work.
Right? So a person can literally stop and look at and admire something for years and years and years.
years and years and years, you know, in this life, what happens you look at something you like it and you want to look at it, but
you know that you have to do something else.
You want to keep looking at your children or at some babies but you're like oh, I'm gonna give them an evil I better look away
you have this feeling right. But in general halaal are looking looking looking.
And look they can look far, far away.
So they can look as far as 2000 miles even. Why so much strength? Why would a person be given so much strength in the hereafter?
So that the capacity to enjoy increases?
Because with these eyes, how much can you draw you enjoy you stare at something for five minutes your eyes start to burn.
You're awake all day long. You need to close your eyes even for a few minutes in order to rest them. But in general, this capacity will increase why so that you can enjoy more. And the greatest of all delights is to be able to see Allah subhana wa Tada. This is why Masada said when he asked Allah
of the arena under a lake, I really really want to see you. I can hear you but I want to see you also. What is the last panel Dallas Atlanta Ronnie, you can never see me meaning with this body that you have
the life that you're living right now. It's beyond you. You don't have the capacity to see me. But in the hereafter on the Day of Judgment. People will be given the capacity the ability to see a law diligence.
The next is little leadin accidental for those who do sn for them is Snell was the other for them is the most excellent reward. And that's not all was the other and even more. This letter this pleasure this greatest delight is for who being able to see Allah soprano with artists for who everybody. Little Idina Arsenal, those who do Essen
so if we want to have the privilege of seeing the last panel, Darla, that's increase in our
in our words and our actions in our dealings.
The more a person does your son, the more deserving you will be up seeing a loss upon a third and the less a person does your son, the less worthy he is of this honor.
For those who do extend his host now was the other and even more, what is even more.
What does the other refer to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam explained this as seen Allah subhanaw taala because seeing Allah is a privilege that will be given in addition to the favors in general. Notice how seeing Allah soprano data is not included in a listener. It has been mentioned separately, and Hostnet refers to all the pleasures in gender, all the rewards in general, from the houses to the rivers of the family and the beauty and the vastness and the pleasures every single enjoyment of gender is included in a listener.
But seeing a loss of panel data, that is Ziad
Because it is the greatest of all rewards, the greatest of all privileges,
Which is why when the people who have done it will see a loss of parental power, they'll forget about everything.
And you wonder sometimes How can you forget about some delicious food that you've had? Or the most amazing experience that you have? How can you forget that? You can only forget it when what you experience next is even better,
and also, the favors engender, they are all to do with the body.
Isn't it? Food and drink and clothes and jewelry? Right and rivers and companions. All of that is what bodily pleasures right?
But seeing Allah subhanaw taala that is the comfort of the heart. That's the enjoyment of the hearts zyada lahoma Sha una Fie her for them. They will have whatever they want. In Ghana, the people of Ghana will have in general anything that they could desire more than what they could desire even because the last person to enter Jannah
and you know how he will enter gender?
Right You will be taken out of the Hellfire you'll be facing hellfire. After some time he will say Allah please turn my face away from hellfire. It's heat. You know, it's it's killing me. So Allah subhanaw taala will turn his face away from hellfire. So you'd be looking at Jenna and the person will say I promise I won't ask you anything.
And then he will look at Jenna from far. Just the doors of Jenna just the opening. And he will wait for some time and he will say Allah, can I please go a little closer to a level remind him of all the promises that he made?
And Allah will say to him, that if I give this to you, will you ask me of anything again? You will say no promise, I won't ask you anything. So Allah subhanaw taala will draw him close to Jenna, same thing will happen he will stare for some time and then he will say please, can I go in?
Can I just go to the door? Can I just go in and eventually the person will be admitted into gender. And when he will be admitted Allah will say ask What do you want? So the person will ask and ask and ask and ask and ask.
And then a level to ask for more. You will ask for more and more and more and more. until that person will run out of his wishes his wish list. You know his wish list is exhausted. The any possible reward that he can imagine. It's all done everything is given. The last panel data will remind him What about this? Don't you want this? What about that? Don't you want that? Don't you want this? Don't you want that? And Allah will keep giving him and giving him and giving him
and Allah will say and you will have mithila humara
meeting twice as much as this and another Sahabi he said no the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said 10 times it's like
all of these enjoyments just imagine any enjoyment that a person can imagine. No matter your shell una Fie her more than a person can even desire he will find in Jenna. But you know what, what a Dana moseyed
and with us is even more
even more and what is moseyed
the privilege to see Allah subhanho wa Taala. Such a great Lord.
And yet, He will give His insignificant creation the chance to see him the chance to meet him the chance to converse with him.
But at the same time, there are those who will be concealed who will not be allowed to see Allah Subhana Allah gulla in the home or abroad be him Yo Mama, a llama hadoo Boone, ne indeed they will be from their Lord on that day concealed.
There will be a barrier between them and Allah soprano Madonna.
So those whom he is pleased with he will show himself to them and those that he is angry with.
He's upset with he will not show himself to them, they will be distanced from Allah. Far Far from him. Let me do Boone concealed.
We have a lab and this topic
and this topic, meaning the topic of the names and attributes of Allah subhana wa tada from his hearing to his seeing, do the believers being able to see him all of these attributes even taymiyah says they are freaky tabula, they are in the book of a locker feed abundantly, meaning there is abundant mention of the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala
In the book of Allah,
you don't need to go any further than the book of Allah. Once you open the book of Allah, almost every Ayah tells you about Allah subhanaw taala his name, his attribute, his action, his command, his wish, his will. His like his dislike. Almost every eye of the Quran tells us about Allah subhanaw taala woman that oboro Quran and whoever reflects upon the Quran, Taliban seeking little Buddha for guidance men who from it, meaning whoever reflects on the Quran seeking guidance from the Quran debayan Allah who will help the correct way will become evident to him, meaning he will definitely find this truth, he will definitely find the right guidance. But notice over here, it's
not just someone who reads the Quran, who will find the truth because there are many, many people who read the Quran.
It is the one who reflects on the Quran. First of all, that Bara reflection, not just reading, but reflection, not just studying and memorizing but reflection. And this means that when we recite the Quran, yes, our focus should be on the correct pronunciation of the words applying the rules of Tajweed Yes, our focus should be on the meaning on the lessons that we can derive. But our focus must also be on who?
Because this is his speech, this has come from him. And how is it possible that a person is reading the Quran but he is not thinking about a loss of power that does not find in the Quran, something that will give him a better understanding of Allah soprano that that will make him love a lot more and fear a lot more and draw close to Allah.
reflection on the Quran. So when we recite the Quran, really our focus should be on what Allah has attributes.
Allah has attributes. Many times at the end of verses we learn about Allah's names and attributes. And we just say that when we pass on, we read them and we move on.
Allah is telling us about his name,
about his attribute about his action, wait a little bit focus on that establish the connection between the name and the message that is given in the area between the attribute in the action that is mentioned.
Reflect on that. Manta Barranco Anna followable houda. The second condition is Oliver little Buddha
read with the intention of seeking guidance.
Not just increasing in information, looking for proof seeking evidence. Yeah, okay. That's also good. However, our first and foremost reason for reading the Quran should be seeking guidance valuable alhuda and the one who will do this the way you know Allah who thought he could have the correct way will become clear to him. How is it that a person can find guidance, reflection, and good intention?
reflection and good intention? reflection is in pay attention.
Pause, reflect? Think about it.
Don't rush. And secondly, a good intention not to show off not to find a proof with which we can negate somebody know a good intention. I want to draw closer to my Lord, I want to better understand this concept.
And any person who will reflect on the Quran like this, he will definitely see the names and attributes of Allah soprano.
And it's amazing how all of these verses if you think about it, we've studied them before, right.
But look at how do you know under one topic on the same theme, you might have been Tamino as if he has, you know literally plucked so many beautiful fruits and flowers. As evidence is he's brought them before us. They were known to us before we knew about these ayat.
But the way they're presented here, one after the other one after the other one after the other, you know, portions of it or at you know complete if they clarify the right way. The more you communicate to a person
to a being whom you haven't met, you want to meet and see. So, you know after this column and everything that he brings the room here because there's this very deep connection you want to see somebody that you've been talking to or listening to for a long time.
Yes, you've long admired you feared you know that they know you and they've seen you and they've protected you and they've helped you do anything in your life then you want to meet them you want to see them
singing and everything he will give us in a minute even those who
created them but this is a Columbia for live in it's it's another level it's a totally different thing other than
the next section is listed laloux Allah as badly as my la was 30 minutes sooner. So taking proof of affirmation of alleged names and attributes from the Sunnah. Because the first is that we look at the Quran What does the Quran say? And then we look at the Sunnah, what does this say? So Alhamdulillah we have completed one section of the book and hamdulillah in which we have studied the various proofs and evidences that we learned from the Quran with respect to the names and attributes of Allah. Now inshallah, as you recite the Quran
what is it that we're going to look at
Allah as names and attributes his mentioned where he is being mentioned, how he is being mentioned? What do we learn about that? You know, we read who he is, right? Or you know, in a verb we know that okay, it's referring to Allah soprano Don't, don't just pass on, reflect on that this is about Allah
and get to know your Lord better. Because this knowledge is the first step to a stronger, a better connection. So panic alarm will be Hamed ignition La ilaha illa Anta let's have a look at one or two we like a Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
