Al-Baqarah 163-171 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 163-164
Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim while either who can either who and your God is one God, La Ilaha Illa who there is no deity worthy of worship, except him of Rahmani Raheem, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, what Illa, who call your God, goon is thorough, and the address is to the entire mankind,
meaning all your people, all mankind, your God, meaning the one who deserves your worship, the only one who is worthy of your worship is who illa Huwa he is one God
and who is he? Allah soprano.
Either hueco illa is the word in Arabic It is used for God, the object of worship, the one who is worshipped, the one whose Riba is done. So Allah is
the one whose Riba is done. As for the meaning of the word, ILA, there are several opinions. Some linguists say that the word Illa is from the root letters, well, then,
it is from the root letters, well, then,
and we there literally means to turn to someone why, in order to get their protection to seek their protection.
So the rule of letters are actually well lamb her, but remember that in the Arabic language, many times for the ease of pronunciation letters are changed, the words are slightly changed. So for example, in the word either, you don't see the word Wheeler, but as you can see, Wheeler is difficult to pronounce an elf is easier to pronounce. So many times, the Arabs would do that they will change the pronunciation of the word.
So we learn changes into ILA. So, who is Ella?
Ella is the one who is sought for help for protection, the one whom everyone turns to why, for protection for help.
Other linguists say that the word ILA is from the root fetters Hamza lab.
It is from the root fetters, Hamza lampa. And from the roof letters, comes out, you get the verb le here, you get the verb and leave her and any her literally means to astonish, to amaze someone, to impress someone to confound someone to leave someone speechless. Because you amaze them. So who is Illa Illa? God is the one who astonishes The one who amazes The one who impresses who those who worship Him. Allah soprano Dada is the only ILA
and we see that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who amazes us. How does he amaze us through his decisions, through His commands, through His creation, his attributes, his knowledge, His mercy, all of these aspects, what do they do? They amaze us. They leave us speechless. We're like, we don't know what to say. The only thing that we can do is just cry. Sometimes, words don't come out we cannot express ourselves.
So Ella, is the one who amazes
then it has been said that the word ILA is from the root letters Hamza, lamb her, but the verb is Anna.
What's the verb? Allah, not Elliot? Elliot, with a casserole under the land means to amaze, to astonish. And Allah means to worship or to show dedication
to show humiliation to someone
who is either
either is the one who is worshipped, either is the one who is shown dedication and humiliation.
So, this is the literal meaning of the word enter.
So, in other words, if you combine all of these definitions, who is Isla?
Isla is the one who is worshipped.
Isla is the one who is turned to for protection for help. Ella is the one who amazes The one who impresses The one who astonishes and because he astonishes them
Before he becomes worthy of worship,
so Allah, Allah says, your God, meaning the one who deserves your worship, the one who truly amazes you, the one to whom everything turns to for protection for help is who Illa Who? One God. Allah subhanaw taala one God, what does it mean by that? That he doesn't have any equals, he is the only one. There is no other being that shares that has a share that has a partnership in his being God.
Either who can either Hawaii
now we learned that in Shaolin or pita you will learn in detail about the heat. What is the heat, oneness of Allah. And over here in this ayah what we're being informed off is the heat of Allah soprano Dallas Bulu. Here. What is Lulu here, Lulu, he is from Isla Soto, he the Lulu here is the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala gotcha.
Meaning that a person should consider only him as ILA,
that he is the only one who deserves worship, and that a person devotes all acts of worship to who? To Him alone, and to no one else. So when a person prays, when a person makes Dora, who should he make dua to Allah.
When a person does such that, who should he do such that to Allah, when something good comes his way, when something bad comes his way? What should he think? Who is the one who made this decision for me? Allah?
So Allah hokum illa Huwa, meaning the one who deserves your worship, or you people is one God, he is the only one whom you should worship, and You should not worship anyone else. Why? Because there is no other God besides Allah.
What does Allah say?
La Ilaha Illa who there is no god except him? Meaning there is no god except Allah, Who is the only one God.
If you look at the statement, La Ilaha Illa, who there ilaha illAllah learning's not either her God in the hood except him. If you literally translate this, what does it mean? There is no inner except Allah. What does it mean?
object of worship God. So there is no god except Allah. There is no object of worship except Allah. But if you think about it, aren't there many other beings who worship besides Allah, there are people worship, the sudden people worship the cow people worship themselves, people worship so many things, so many beings, so much creation, stone rock. So, if Allah says La Ilaha Illa, who, what is the mean by this, that there is no god except when you see the statement, La Ilaha Illa, who you see the word law, what does it mean? Not this word law in the Arabic language must have two phrases after it, it must have two words, after two phrases after it. The first one has to be a subject and
the second one has to be a description of that subject.
So over here, La Ilaha Illa, who left is the negation and the subject is ILA. The subject is ILA, but there is no description of the law, in the sentence law either
and that description is not mentioned, but it is implied, it is understood.
And what is that description? It is be happening in truth in reality, so, that inner inner who literally translates as there is no god except him. But what it means is that there is no God, we have been, meaning the one who is really a God, the one who deserves worship, except Him, except Allah.
To the statement La Ilaha Illa. Who means, there is no god worthy of worship. There is no god worthy of worship, except Allah.
Because as we discussed earlier, there are many gods many objects will worship besides Allah
But do they deserve worship? They don't. Because Allah is the only one who deserves worship.
Allah tells us in total, which is number 60. And that which they call upon other than Him is all falsehood.
Everything else that is worship besides Allah is a false god. Everything, whether it is a person, or an object, anything that is worshipped besides Allah is not a god.
Because if you think of it, the other gods who are worshipped, they're not really gods. They're not actually gods.
For example, if people worship a star, a star is a star. And people say, no, it is God. Is their calling the star God going to make the star God? No, a star is going to remain a star. Just because somebody says that it's a god, it's not gonna make the star God.
Similarly, you have a name, and somebody changes your name and says, No, this is not your name, this is your name? Is there near changing your name going to change your name? No. Is it going to change who you are? No. So similarly, everything that a Lost Planet Allah has created is a specific creation. And it is creation. Just because people say that they are God does not make them God. Just because people worship them. It doesn't mean that they are God. And animal is an animal. If a person says that that animal is a god, it's not a god.
And as for the idols were worshipped. What about them? Allah subhanaw taala tell us about them. insalata nejm is number 23. In here in a smile on some may to move her into more vocal manzanilla who become insulting. They are not but mere names. You have named them? What does he mean by that?
These objects that you worship besides Allah, what is their only reality? Just the name, just the title that they have been given. Because there is no other reality to them. You, yourself, have given them these names. Who you and your forefathers, for which Allah has sent out no authority. So your God is only one God, and He is the only one true God. Everything else that is worship besides Allah is not God, because everything else is creation? How can a creation we got? Just because people call it God. It doesn't make them God. Which is why our last panel data tells us that we should only worship in La Ilaha Illa who there is no god except Him.
And because there is no god except him. We should only worship Allah with earnings with the sharara ayah 213. Allah says falletta the rumor Allahu Allah,
do not invoke with Allah, another day at another god. Do not worship along with Allah, any other God? Because Allah tells us that he is only one God.
Now you see the statement of Allah ilaha illa Huwa. What does that mean? Your God is one God. The second statement is La Ilaha Illa who there is no other God worthy of worship, except him except Allah. Now the question is, why is this statement? let you know? Why is this mentioned? Because, you know, how come inagua hate it simply tells us Yes, your God is one God understood. Why say there is no other God worthy of worship except Allah
for two reasons. First of all, in order to emphasize the fact that there is only one God
in order to emphasize that there is only one God, there is no other True God besides Him.
There is no other True God beside him.
Secondly, if you look at the statement, either who come in or who your God is one God, it's an affirmation, meaning we're being told about something. And we're being told about the reality of something. And what is that reality that your God is one God.
Okay, the second phrases of negation La Ilaha Illa, who there is no other God beside him? Your God is one God. There is no other God besides Him. So with the affirmation, and with that
The negation together you get a complete description,
that He alone is the one to God. There is no other God besides Him who deserves worship. He alone is the one true God.
Who is he? He is the man, the Entirely Merciful. And he is also a Rahim. the Especially Merciful on Rahman, and Rahim, the names of Allah there from the roof letters, or ah ha me from Rama
and Rama is mercy. Allah Herman indicates the vastness of the mercy of Allah. That he is one who has a lot of mercy. It shows the WUSA it shows the vastness of the mercy of Allah.
And Rahim indicates that He bestows that mercy or he shows that mercy. He expresses that mercy. He doesn't just have the attribute of mercy, but he also shows mercy, so
that he has the attribute of mercy, and over him, that he shows mercy.
Another difference that we learned about our men and over him is that our man indicates
that his armor mean that is general for the entire creation. So our rock man is the Entirely Merciful, the one who is merciful towards everyone, every single creation.
And a Rahim indicates Rama that is possible, that he is specifically Especially Merciful towards some creation, and who is that creation delivers, He bestows upon them his special mercy.
So there is no god worthy of worship except Allah, the one whom you worship is one God is one Allah, Who is he a man and he is also applying.
So we see over here, that the first quality or the first description that our last panel gives of himself is that he has mercy. And we learned that this description at the beginning of the Quran as well, and sort of the fact that as you begin to recite the Quran, what do you say Bismillah R Rahman R, Rahim.
You begin to revel Fattah al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Then what do you say?
So the first attributes that Allah subhanaw taala introduces us with our which attributes of his of mercy.
Some people say that the God of Muslims is severe and stern, because he punishes and our God who does not punish is the Most Merciful is the loving God. But how does a library use himself? La Ilaha Illa hoo hoo.
So the question is, that how is Allah soprano Dada merciful? You notice, once a fall of Rama is not mentioned, one name of Rama is not mentioned. Do our mentioned do or mentioned, to show that he is very merciful, that his mercy overcomes his anger? So the question is, how is a loss of power without the merciful then if somebody asks you, your luck punishes, how's the merciful? What are you going to say? A lot elders that he is a black man over him. That's the first description that he gives us. of him. What are you going to say? How is he merciful? And how is he merciful in this world? for everybody?
In what way?
He has given us so many things, without us even asking for them.
Did you ask for your eyes? Did you?
Did you ask for a body? Did you ask for air, your lungs, your nose, the different functions of your body that you are not even aware of? You didn't? Who gave them to you?
Allah. And despite the fact that people disobey him despite the fact that people don't listen to him, still, he continues to give them
so whatever that we have, every single thing that we have, we have it because of his mercy and compassion. Because we didn't really do anything to attain these blessings. Do hands, two feet, two ears, a nose, all of these things that we have all of these abilities that we have, who gave them to us, Allah panda.
So everything we have, everything we do, everything we are, are because of his mercy. And because he is the one who is most merciful to us, He is the one who has given us everything. Therefore what should we do?
If he is so kind to us, if he has given everything to us, what should we do as a result, in response, obey him.
If he has given so much to us, then we should also show something to him, we should also give something to him. And what is that?
obedience, we should also offer something to him. And that is our obedience,
a loss of power that is one was given everything. If you think of it, even for every single disease, he has given a cure.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, we can be there in the world, for every ailment is a cure. Isn't that a mercy in itself? It is. Imagine if ailments and illnesses and disease and sickness meant that said, a person has finished.
How many of us would be alive today, none of us. Each and every person has become sick in some point of their lives. And Allah Subhana, Allah is merciful upon us that He has given us a cure for that in this. So if Allah has given us everything we do, should offer something.
And what is that? our obedience? Which is exactly what we are being invited to in this is that your God is one God, the only one who deserves your worship? is Allah, Who is he? He is the one who is most merciful to you. He has given everything to you, and because he has given everything to you, shouldn't you? Shouldn't you love him? Shouldn't you respect him?
Of course you should.
We learn in sort of an eye 162 called inner solidarity when usuki jamahiriya woman at the leisure of me say that, indeed my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for who? For Allah,
Who is Allah, the Lord of the worlds. So if he has given me so much, I must worship Him, and I must offer obedience to Him, He should be the center of our lives.
Now the question is, that Allah is our man, and he is also over him. How is he over him? And how is he over him? Why is he the only inner? How is he the only Illa? How come he is the only one who deserves worship? The detail is given to us in the next day.
And what is that?
In a few hundreds of hours, it will,
indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, was the laughing lady when the hell and the alternation of the night and the day, one full kilrathi tragedy filled by habima yen firmness, and the great ships, which sailed through the sea, with that which benefits people, woman under the law whom in a summer he met in for hear the hill of a bar demo at her,
and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness. Well, both of you have been co leader, and dispersing there in every kind of moving creature with a three foot Ria, and his directing of the winds, was the habit was a hurry by in a summer event, and the clouds that are controlled between the heaven and the earth, indeed, and all of this, what is there yet surely signs for who you call me up you do for people who use their intellect.
So we've seen this ayah that many different favors of Allah have been mentioned.
And all of these favors, they indicate to us the mercy of Allah. They indicate to us the power of Allah, they indicate to us the wisdom and the knowledge of Allah. And when we realize all of these things, then what should be done? We should worship only him. Because if he's the only one who is doing this, then he should be the only one who is worshipped.
What are these things that Allah has mentioned? First of all, in a fee, Hulk is on our table or, indeed in the creation of the heavens and there.
The word Hulk is from the roof veterans Hall lamb.
And the word Hulk is understood in two ways. First of all, the word Hulk is used for creation, for creature for that which has been created. mk Luke.
And secondly, Hulk gives the meaning of do create, or to originate to make.
So first of all, Hulk refers to the object that has been created.
Secondly, Hulk refers to the process of creation, the process of creation, the making of something, the origination of something.
So in the hands of what, of smls, one of the heavens and the earth? What does it mean by that, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, meaning how the heavens and the earth, and everything within them were created, how they were created, they were not existed before. They didn't exist before. There is nothing like the heavens and the earth that existed before.
Remember, we did the name of a Lost Planet, Allah dear, but dear civility will have what did we learn that he created the heavens and the earth without there being anything like the heavens and the earth existed before?
So the fact that he made the heavens and the earth and how he made the heavens and the earth, with their magnitude, with their perfection from nothing? What does that show
that shows the ability and perfection of Allah soprano
in a few 100 smls.
And if you look at the sky, in particular, how the sky functions, how the earth functions, what does the sky do, that the sky brings rain, the sky brings hail, it brings snow, it brings sun, it brings eat, it brings gold, it brings so many things. The colors in the sky, the beauty of the sky, the vastness of the sky, the form the appearance of the sky.
Similarly, that of the earth, how the earth is filled with benefits for people,
how the earth is filled with those things that fulfill the needs and sustenance of people. How the earth has everything that the people need for their life, and also, after data
in a few 100%, what you're so hungry, somehow what you will, basically indicates to things that how they are, how the sky is how the earth is, look at how the sky is made. Look at what the sky does look at the earth, what is in the earth.
And then it also points to the fact how the sky was made, how the earth was made. It was nothing before it didn't exist, who brought them to existence, of loss of penalty,
and how perfectly with their magnitude with everything within
that they're running perfectly up until now. Just imagine they're running, they're functioning up until now 1000s 1000s and 1000s of years. Nothing that human beings make can last for this long, nothing at all.
The creation of a loss of panel data, it shows it manifests his power and his wisdom and his ability.
As for the earth, if you look at the earth itself is a miracle. how Allah has filled it with that which fulfills the need of the human beings while we are alive, and also when we die.
We learn so little more Salat is 25 to 27. Allah tells us along the journey of lucky fatter a here and what am what would your life be held Alessia show me Horton was clean air coma and full auto? Have We not made the earth a container? For who? For the living and the dead?
The earth is a container for who? For the living and the dead.
Meaning when the living around the Earth, their food, their provision, their sustenance comes from the earth. And when they die, what happens to them? What happens to them? They're buried in the earth and they become a part of the earth.
Imagine if the earth was rock solid?
Imagine if there was no soil. Just imagine what would grow on the earth? Would there be any food for you know,
similarly, people would die, the creation would just sit there, decaying in front of us rotting in front of us making our lives a misery. So in the Hulk is somewhat evil, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, in how they are in how they function and how they've been made, and how they fulfill all of your needs. What do they point two? What do they indicate the supreme knowledge of Allah, the supreme power of Allah, the Supreme Mercy of Allah upon you.
Look how the skies above you because the earth is below you.
It's a home that Allah has provided you with. Isn't that a mercy?
Who has done that? Only Allah so if only Allah has given this to you? Should he not be the only one who deserves your love and worship your dedication? Of course, walk the lovely lady when the house
And also in the alternation of the night and the day. If the love is from the roof letters ha lanpher.
And if stellify bellyful if the love means difference, what does it mean? difference? variation.
And because hunt means behind Khalifa is one who comes after someone. So if the left is also used for succession, or coming back to back, coming one after another.
So what are the two meanings of a CNF?
First of all, first of all, difference variation. And secondly, succession coming one after the other
of what, of the night and the day. So, in the alternation of the night and the day, what does it mean by that?
First of all, let's look at the meaning of the difference between the night in the day
the night is dark, and the day is bright. Why, so that during the night, we can rest, and during the day, we can work.
Similarly, one is cool, and the other is hot. depending on the season, depending on the location, the night is cool, and the day is hot or warm.
One is very lonely and quiet. The night is very quiet, very lonely.
And the other is buzzing with noise and life. It's active. Why? So that it's easier for us to work during the day. And it's easier for us to sleep during the night. And I knew there was no concept of the night and the day. The night and the day were the same, we just had 24 hours that were completely right or completely dark. It would be impossible to live in peace.
Sometimes you're trying to sleep during the day, because you weren't able to sleep during the night. What happens, you hear the noise of people, you hear the noise of traffic, you hear the noise of birds, and you're not able to sleep, you're not able to have a restful sleep. restful sleep is only possible when during the night.
So the night is different, the day is different. Similarly, there is another difference that the night for example, sometimes as long as the day is short, or the other way around that the day is long. And the night is short. Why? So that sometimes we have more time during the night to worship Allah subhanaw taala more. Sometimes we have more time during the day so that we can do more work, we can accomplish more work.
So the difference in the night and the day? What does that show? The wisdom of Allah, the knowledge of Allah, the Rama, the mercy of Allah. Imagine if the night and the day were the same, would life be the same? Not at all.
Allah subhanaw taala asks us in the forum that imagine that if Allah made the night permanent, who would bring the day for you.
And if he made the day permanent, who would bring the night for you? Nobody would be able to do that.
in certain places in the dunya, where it is dark, for most of the season, at particular times. And other times it is bright, meaning the sun doesn't set what happens. Life is difficult over there.
So first of all, in the difference, secondly, in the alternation, what is the alternation the succession of the night and day that one comes, and the other goes, the night comes, and the day leaves, the day comes, and the night leaves. And this cycle is continuous, meaning you expect the day to end and you expect the night to begin. You expect the night to end and you expect the day to begin, isn't it so?
It's continuous. It's a constant cycle. And this is what makes our life very easy as well. Imagine if the night and day were not predictable. Just imagine
it just all of a sudden it would be darker like two in the afternoon, just imagine or one at night, and it's right there. Would you be able to do anything? No. So in the alternation of the night, and day, also, there are signs. And the alternation also is beautiful. And another way that the night, leaves gradually and the day comes gradually. Similarly, the day leaves gradually and the night comes gradually. Isn't there a mercy in that? You know, sometimes, in the middle of the night when you wake up, and you turn the light on what happens to your eyes
very uncomfortable. Similarly, if you're in the middle of something, and your lights start working, or you're in a place where the electricity goes, there is no electricity. All of a sudden you're left in the dark. Imagine how many accidents would occur.
Imagine how many difficulties we would go through. So in the fact that the night leaves gradually, and the day comes gradually, that the day leaves gradually and the night comes gradually. Also, there is what there is Rama for us. There is mercy for us a lot to elders and so little for con. I number 62 wahoo. I love you, john. And Lena when the heart of his Latin, and it is he who made the night and the day in succession.
Who made the system? Allah soprano Tada.
So there is the differences between the night and the day. There's the alternation of the night and the day as well.
And we see that there is also variation. There's also variation how that sometimes the days are long. And sometimes the nights are long. Sometimes the days are hot, and other times the nights are hot.
And this cycle, it continues, it changes, there is variation. It's not like, you know, the night is only 12 hours and the days, only 12 hours, the night is always cool, and the day is always hot. No. Because of this variation, we're able to enjoy the night, we're able to enjoy the day. Because of this variation, we're able to enjoy the different parts of the 24 hours that we've been given, benefit from them, experienced them differently.
And we see that every two days are not the same. And every two nights are not the same.
Something's happened in one day, and the other day, something completely different happens. One day, you're extremely sad, you're extremely depressed and the other day, everything is fine and normal, everything is fine. So in this alternation, in this variation, in this difference between the night and day, what is there, there are signs for what indicating what indicating the mercy of Allah, indicating how well Allah knows us, He is the one who created us, He is the one who made us, He is the one who knows what we need, and he has fulfilled all of these needs of ours.
So, all of these things, what do they indicate the oneness of Allah,
one full key and the ships which ships allottee refill,
which flow in the sea, what do they flow with? We may infer ness with that which benefits to people. The word funk is from the roof veterans fat lamb calf, and the word folk appears to be a singular word, but the word focus actually in essence, what does that mean? That it can be used for singular, it can be used for dual and it can also be used for plural depending on the context.
So over here, and folk is being used for cooling
and the ships which ships allottee, which then refill, the genie is under fetters Jean roya. As you know, General yejide means to flow and there are yejide is to take something and flow with it quickly to take something and run with it or flow with it proceed with it quickly.
So tragedy filled by
these ships, what do they do they float in the sea, and the word is used for a large body of water. It can apply to an ocean it can apply to a sea it's a large body of water, it can apply to a huge lake. So, let it refill back.
Now, what does it mean by the ships that float fill in the sea? This is understood in two ways. First of all, literally in the water, submerged in the water, under the water under the surface of the sea, which ones submarines and secondly failback is understood as in the sea meaning on the surface of the sea, because that is what do you think of so well for Kennedy Treasury Wilbur
and what do these ships do? They flow with what Bheema with that which in fairness, it benefits to people young Pharaoh is from noon fair, I vema back over here gives them meaning of with that, along with that, containing that having that
and malvinder gives meaning of that which so much is general. So the ships carry all that which benefit the people or the different things that benefit the people. Now what is it that these ships carry? First of all we see that ships are used for trade isn't they're used for trade.
We see that every land grows, a certain type of food, or every land has its own particular features. In one land, there is oil, in another land, there is gas. In another land, there is very good water. In other land, there is very good soil.
In another land, there is very good produce. In one land, there's a lot of good cotton that grows. So therefore, there's a lot of cotton industries, you know, making a lot of clouds. And because a lot of panel data has distributed the risk across the earth,
and because human beings are in need of each other, in order to fulfill their needs, we need other people, we need to get what they have a loss of panel data has given us the facility of ships. Why, so that we can transfer goods from one land to the other with ease, because if these goods were to be transported over land, or through air, it will be very difficult.
We know that even cars, they're transported from one land to another from one continent to another, would that be possible on a plane on a truck? It would be very difficult. So these ships are also panatela has provided us with Why? So that we can exchange or we can transport we can export we can import different products from different lens for our benefit, so that we can benefit.
What else do ships carry?
aid people. They also travel through ships. They also use ships for their transportation for travel purposes. Similarly, ships are used for fishing. They're also used for fishing. They're used for research. They're used for so many things. Who has enabled the ship the boat to float on the sea? on the water.
Isn't it amazing that a huge ship that has so many cars can float on the sea? For a tiny needle? That is nothing compared to the weight of that ship? It'll drown a tiny needle that will drown but the ship will float? Whose Mercy is that? Whose cares that? Whose affection is that? Allah subhanaw taala.
So the ships also what do they show to us? The power of Allah, the knowledge of Allah, the wisdom of Allah, the mercy of Allah, the care that Allah has for us, the care that our last panel data shows to us. And today, it's not just the ships that are used for transferring goods, it's even planes, airplanes that are used for travel for transferring things. And about air travel. For example, birds have also pilota dimensions about them in the Quran. So to the naked eye 79 lm euro Illa piety Musa Herat and feature with Sana Miam SQL one a llama in a theoretical IIT likoma minion Do they not see the birds controlled in the atmosphere of the sky? None hold them except Allah indeed in that are
Signs for people who believe so, he is the one who keeps the birds up in the air and he is the one who enables the planes as well to fly up in the air.
Just imagine if fast travel or transportation of goods was not possible. If we were not provided with the ability to you know make certain things float on water or make certain things fly in the air. How would you get things that you want? How would you get that gadget that is only made in Japan?
How would you get that particular food that is only grown in certain tropical countries? juicy mangoes How would you get them
be my yen firmness with that which benefits the people
so this shows a loss of palatinus ability warmer under a love Amina summit and whatever that Allah has sent down from the sky, what is it that Allah has sent down from the sky mimma in of water
and water that Allah sends down from the sky comes to us in various forms in the form of rain in the form of snow in the form of hail. So my answer love them in a similar image.
And this water as it comes down from the sky for here so he gave life here from the roof veterans have yet yeah. From the word Hyatt Hyatt means life. Here he gave life V with it, meaning through it. Through What? Through this water that Allah sends down from the sky. He brings to life what he brings to life and the earth. bar the motiva
After its depth, what's the depth of the earth?
The emptiness, the dryness, the barrenness of the earth, when there's nothing that grows on the earth, for example, in winter, what happens to the earth, what happens to the soil,
it doesn't grow anything. But in the summer, in spring, what happens? It's full of life, it's lush. So the depth of the Earth is the barrenness, the dryness of the earth, when there is nothing on the earth, meaning nothing grows on the earth, and the life of the Earth is when it has vegetation upon it.
So we see over here, that a lot of panel data points to us that even in the fact that he sent down rain, from the sky, is a mercy.
Just imagine, if the water that we get was not sent in the form of rain,
if the only water we had access to was from lakes or rivers or seas or streams, no water coming down from the sky, what would happen what would happen the bottom of the trees, the roots, okay, they would get the water, but the top the leaves, they would be covered with dust, literally, they would be covered with dust with soil, because they would never get wet.
Similarly, places that are higher for example, mountains, the tip of the mountains, there would be no water and at the bottom, there would be so much water. And for that which is high up for that you get water, that which is below would have to be drowned in water.
Just imagine. So the fact that a lot sends down rain, from the sky, to water us with so that water reaches not just the surface of the earth, but every single corner of the earth. There is a special Mercy of Allah and with the rain coming down, what else happens? The Earth comes back to life. Allah subhanaw taala tells us instead of the nude I have 43 lm Tara and Allah hi use jisa heaven so my you only four by now Who? So my ajala hudl karma First of all, what would you mean clearly when you know the Lumina summit in Japan in FY Herrmann burden, for you see will be Hema Yesha warrior three four who are Manisha,
do you not see that Allah drives clouds? Allah is the one who sends the clouds. Then he brings them together, and then he makes them into a mess. You see all the clouds getting together, piling up into a mess, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And he sends down from the sky, mountains of clouds within which is hail, and he strikes with it whom He wills and averts it, from whom He wills.
Imagine if every time water came down from the sky, it was always he'll
just imagine, or it was always snow.
Or if the water was extremely hot. Would you enjoy that rain? Would your plants enjoy that green? Would your cars enjoy that rain? No. Nothing would enjoy that rain.
If the water was too hot if the water was too cold, or if every time it was hail? how destructive it would be. But the fact that Allah sends down water, rain from the sky, even in that is a mercy.
And as a result of that rain, what happens the earth comes to life.
Allah says and sort of hedge is 63 and under an Allah and gentlemen, a semi EMA and philosophy of dharma. Do you not see that Allah has sent down rain from the sky and the earth becomes green?
You wonder sometimes, so much snow falls onto the earth, but you don't see a lot of plants growing for
only when the snow has melted, and then the rain comes then you see the entire earth it becomes green, the entire land it becomes green.
And with this earth coming to life, are there any benefits for the people with the vegetation that grows on the earth? Are there any benefits for people?
Of course there are
because with the rain coming down what happens? The plants grow with serve as food for us and also for the rest of the creation. Because he is a human, He is merciful, not just to the human beings, but also to the rest of the creation. Allah tells us Surah obasa is 24 to 32 fairly unreal, insane, a lot army
then let the human being Look at his food. And now suburban and nervous about where did you get that food from? this nice fresh salad that you're enjoying very fresh fruit that you're enjoying very
Juicy nice flavorful fruit. Where did that come from? Look at your food. How we pour down water in Torrance, meaning from the sky. So much of our canal Alba Shaka, then we broke open the earth, splitting it with sprouts for unbuttoned if he had bad and cause to grow within it, grain, our staple food, worrying about what the end grapes and herbage was a tuna and when an olive and palm trees were had their eco vulva, and gardens of dense shrubbery.
Just imagine we get fruits and vegetables which are as food for us. But what about the pleasure that are enjoyed by our eyes with the beauty of what we see? You go to a beautiful garden, just the green earth, and the lovely flowers and lovely colors. They amaze you.
And gardens of dense shrubbery.
what he had done was at the end fruits and grass matter and local Wiley and amicon as enjoyment for you, and also your grazing livestock.
So from the point of the water coming down from the sky, to what the water does to the earth, and what the earth produces as a result of water coming down upon it, in this entire process, there is benefit and affection and mercy for who for us. And who is doing this, Allah Subhana Allah.
So if he is the one who is doing it, doesn't he alone deserve your worship? Then?
What about Sufi Herman calida any spread in it, of every living creature of every crawling creature, but but based on the roof address, Beth.
And Beth means to scatter or to spread something far and abroad.
It doesn't just mean to scatter something. For example, within one group, no, it is to scatter something. So he is far and abroad, widely spread out.
So Bertha, he has spread fear in it in what in the earth, meaning all across the earth, all over the earth? He has spread he has scattered. What has he scattered mean Khalida, but every crawling creature, Lord dub is on the reflectors, then the from the end of the year to boot literally means to crawl, what does it mean, to crawl, to walk to move, that is used for anything that moves, anything that walks, anything that crawls, or flies, as long as it moves, whatever that movement is, whether it is in walking, or crawling, or swimming, or flying, whatever that movement is. daba is what anything that moves by its own will.
Anything that moves by its own will,
whether it is big, or small,
it is as big as an elephant, or as tiny, as an organism that is not visible to the naked eye.
And it includes everything, whether it is often or rocket, what isn't rocket, one that has intellect, for example, to human beings, and later aka those that do not really have intellect, for example, the animals
so that includes every single creature, from the human beings, to the animals, to the birds, to the insects to the fish in the sea. Well Bertha Fie him in kalida. So Allah has spread out on the earth all across the earth, different different types of
notice kalida. Khalida indicates every kind of every single type of there's so many different types of just one kind of creation. So many different types of ads, so many different types of crows, so many different types of spiders, so many different species, so many different types of human beings. He has spread them all over the earth, across the air.
And it's amazing that even in below zero degrees, temperatures, there are organisms that exists. There is creation that exists over there.
And how many data are there on the earth?
How many creatures are there on the earth?
we're not able to count them. And every other day, there are new animals. There are new creatures. There are new organisms that are discovered.
We don't even have the awareness or the knowledge of all that creation.
What Bertha mean could be that
The question is that why has he spread them across the earth? Why hasn't he just put all the creatures in just one continent? Why all over the earth?
Why? Because different continents or different lands are suitable for different creatures.
Some creatures can only survive in very hot temperatures, others can survive in cold temperatures, others can survive in a tropical area, and others cannot. So Allah has put every creature in a land that is suitable for its existence that is suitable for its life. Well by Sofia Min calida. We learned into the Baja by a 50 musala salaam said to fit around Rob Boone and Lady Arthur Konishi in Hong Kong who sama Harada
Our Lord is He who gave each thing its form and then he guided it as well. He guided that creation to what to its food to where it should live to how it should fly to where it should spend the summer and where to spend the winter

What does leave earlier and also in the changing of the wings, the sleeve is from the roof letters solid rock
solid rock surf surf literally means to turn What does it mean to turn do during the direction of something to divert the direction of something this is the literal meaning of the word soft soft is used for morphology, which is how the different verbs they change forms young guru another time you see young w sometimes you see one another time you see the one there you see these additional letters. Sometimes you say on our own and sometimes you say is the odd
sometimes it is a lot farther, another time it is istockphoto. So how the verbs they change their forms the different different forms of the verbs that is what stuff is.
So the sleeve What does it mean the changing turning about directing dispatching distributing
of what of area area is a plural of the word V and the route that has a lot yeah. And V is used for wind what is wind, air in motion. So this leaf area,
notice the plural has been used because there are many kinds of wings.
Sometimes there is a particular type of wind that blows from the north, other from the south. One type of wind is very hot. Another type of wind is called a wind chill. So there are different types of winds. So the Sleaford here. Now the question is, what does it mean by the sleeve of ARIA?
What does it mean by this changing or directing of the winds? First of all, it means the variety of winds, how the winds vary in their direction, in their speed, in their temperatures, in their force,
in the benefit that they bring, or in the harm that they bring,
how the winds are different, how they vary in all of these things.
So the coming of the winds from different directions, how they're dispatched, how they're distributed, one type of wind blows from north to south, another from south to north, and other from east to west, and other from west to east, so on and so forth. So how they vary in their direction. But just imagine if the wind blew in just one direction. Always. Always, if the wind blew in just one direction, what would happen? Think of it.
For example, all of the trees would be bent towards the direction in which the wind blows. What else would happen? The winds, they control the currents as well to the water system that would be affected. The clouds would only go on to one particular land, and the people from whose eyes The clouds are just going they would just look at the clouds and
what else would happen.
It would affect the migration of the animals, it would really affect the air flights as well. The direction of the wind.
And also think about it. Sometimes certain places they have a lot of pollution up in the air. And if the wind blew in one direction, only what would happen? All of the pollution which is collected in one place,
but the wind is directed to all corners balancing everything out.
Then what the three firrea
So the first meaning, as I told you was the variety of the winds, how they vary in their direction in their ship, they're in their speed in their temperature. And the second meaning is that how the winds, they change their direction, the wind doesn't just blow in one direction only.
And it's not just the direction that has changed. It is also the temperature or the speed that has changed.
At one point, the wind is very fast. Another point, it's not that fast.
At one point, there is a storm. And another point there is a very nice breeze that is very comfortable. So what the three philia who is doing this last time
was the habit muscle hurry bonus Tonight you will,
and the clouds that are controlled between the heaven and the earth, as the head as a hell of a move ever seen her. And Sam literally means to drag something. What does it mean, to drag something and to have is used for those clouds, that the wind spreads and moves around in the sky, meaning it's not used for that particular cloud that brings rain, but it's just used for those clouds that are up in the sky, and they're moved by the wind, they're blown by the wind from one place to the other.
This is what the word sahab is used for.
And these are have Allah says most of their most of their subjective moussaka is on the roof ever seen.
And the suite is to subjugate something, do subject something to some order, meaning that particular thing does not have any freedom. It is only to do what it is commanded to do, what it is made to do. That is what the worker suite is useful.
For the workers lead is also used for making a compelling someone do obedience, without any wage for the work.
So there's a hub, they are most of them are controlled, and they are put to work. That's what they're supposed to do.
They can't just come down to the earth, they can't just disappear. No, they're controlled by Allah. Where are they controlled by nazma, you will up between the sky and the earth.
So we see that the clouds, they don't come right on the earth.
And we see the clouds as well. There's so much variety, the colors, the sizes, the types, the shapes. So all of this is being done by who, by Allah subhanaw taala.
So all of these things that are mentioned, why are they mentioned over here?
Allah says, in all of these things, there are 18 there are surely signs for who liko me or they don't for people who understand I add is a plural of I, I noticed the word as Dean, it ends with a 10 ween, what does that show that the word is Nikita, and necros, for several reasons over here, I think indicates great science, great signs with signs, signs that point to the mercy, signs that point to the wisdom that point to the podra the ability of a last parameter, that if he is the only one who is doing all of this, then he knows us very well. And he really takes care of us. And he really has the ability to do all of this, he must be very powerful. And obviously he's the only one
who is doing this. What does that mean? That he is the only one who deserves worship as well.
So these if they also point to the oneness of Allah, to the fact that he is the only one who deserves worship. He alone has done all of these things. And he continues to do them as well. For who for us.
So we see that all of these if they show us many lessons, one of the first lessons that we learned from these ayat that are mentioned over here from the signs that are mentioned over here is the supreme power, the Supreme ability of Allah.
We don't insult the path. I am 38 Allah says, and we did certainly create the heavens and the earth, and what is between them in six days.
The heavens and the earth, and everything in between was created and how long? Six days? Why mama sent me lube and there touched us no weariness, meaning we did not get tired at all. After creating the heavens and the earth and everything in between.
So he is the one who created everything, and he did not get tired. Then who is he? He is the ILA.
No human being, no creation can be God. The one who created all of them.
This is the actual true God.
Let's listen to the recitation.
In the hall opens,
up, we have Tina
So we see over here that our last panel data wants us to open our eyes, to look around us, to look above us, to look around us, to look beneath us to look within ourselves, and realize that there is someone who made all of this, there is someone behind all of this, there is someone who is running all of this, and that someone is your God, that someone is the one who created you, and that someone is the one who deserves your worship.
I was watching a documentary once, in which there was a scientist, and he was saying that it would take me more faith, to believe that there is no God, then it would take me to believe that there is God.
It is easier for me to believe that there is God and it is more difficult for me to believe that there is no God.
Because when you look everything around you, you can't deny there's someone behind all of this. All of this perfection, you know, all of these details, little little things that fulfill our needs, that enable us to survive. There's someone out there who really has a lot of knowledge, who really has a lot of ability, who really has a lot of wisdom. And that being is God. That being is Allah.
And Allah tells us that it is only him who does this. But who will understand.
Allah says Allah is for who? Lithuania loon for people who use their intellect for people who use reason yarraka notice from Apple, and Apple intellect is of two types. First of all, the first type of Apple, the first type of intellect is that of itraq. What does it rocked me to just perceive things as they are? to just look at things, apparently, and know them just on the surface. Just have a superficial awareness or knowledge about things. For example, you look at a desk and you know, okay, fine, this is a desk, you look at a bag and you know, okay, fine, that's a bag. You don't know which bag it is, what letter It is made off, how expensive it is, you have no idea
it rock is just to perceive things, just look at things on their surface and take them as it is do not look any deeper.
This is the first type of intellect.
The second type of intellect is that of rush.
What is that?
Which takes a person deeper, which takes a person to understanding the reality of that matter?
Some people they have itraq they only look at the surface. Yeah, their incomes? Yeah, it's gonna be cold today. It's gonna be hot today. Yes, that's what the weather is. That's what the forecast is. Yes, this is how, you know the cells function. And this is how the trees grow. And this is how the water cycle runs. And that's it. They don't look any deeper.
Russia is that a person goes beyond the surface and he tries to figure out the reality. Okay, it functions like this, but why and how, and who did this? For who? For what reason for what purpose? And the one who has rushed. He takes a lesson from it.
For example, every single day, you get the weather forecast, we will do so much effort and trying to figure out how the rest of the day is going to be how the rest of the week is going to be. But they don't look at the fact that Who is the one who's doing this. How come today. It's such nice weather and the next day it's raining
poka poka they don't look beyond the surface. So over here when Allah says there is for Holy komiya pollun for people who have aka, meaning for people who use their Apple, who don't just look at the things on their surface, but they go deeper, they say, How come? Who made this? For who? When, why? Where is it going? Only those people who use their uncle are the ones who will benefit from this, who will really take a lesson.
So what's the essence? What's the message of these two verses? What do we learn from these two verses?
We should ponder upon all the creation that is around us, we should reflect upon everything that we see. And we should realize that Allah is the one who made this. And we should realize that because he is the one who did all of this, this is why he deserves my worship.
In the previous verses, we learned that those people who die as disbelievers, where will they end up
in the Hellfire? How long will there be in there?
For eternity? Why? Because a person benefits from all of these things that Allah has made. And never for a single moment he thinks, who made me? Why is he giving me all of this? How come the night goes on the day comes he never thought he never uses internet. Allah gave him an intellect, Allah gave him a mind. But he never used that mind to recognize his creator. If he didn't, he ends up in the trash, because he didn't use that intellect that Allah gave him.
Because some people were questioning that you know how come disbelievers will go to hell for eternity. I mean, everybody's not bad. Some people are also good. But we learned that the best quality that a person can have is a man. Because a man is gratitude, fat qurani at Coco wash karauli. While at UK foreign, all of these verses are connected. So we should look around us use our mind use our abilities, and recognize a loss of panel data and worship him obey Him.
Most of these things that are mentioned over here, what do people do people actually worship them. But these things are what their signs for us. And many times what do we complain about? How come the night is so short? Now, I'm not able to do everything. The days are so long. Fasting is impossible. I'm dead. By the end of the day, I have no strength left to play piano late.
It's so hard, or it's so cold. This is what we complain about all the time. And when things are not normal, they remind us that there is someone who is controlling this. When you see floods, when you see earthquakes when you see disaster. What does that remind you of? There is someone who is running this it's not just mechanical, it's not a machine. There's someone who is behind the scenes. When we interfere with the systems when we go beyond our limits, then we create trouble for ourselves.
All of these things that are mentioned over here, they're so obedient to Allah, but sahab Alamosa have the clouds that are controlled. All of these things are so big into Allah and the one who has been given choice the human beings, what do we do? Instead of submitting to Allah, we submit to others.
There's a lot of shedder in these words that we read in these verses.
We should really look at the creation that Allah has made, and we should enjoy looking at it. Sometimes when I go sightseeing, it's boring.
We learn to let go Bethlehem in Cali daba, that the creatures, they're spread over the earth depending on where it is more suitable for them to live. But you look at the human beings and they're all across the earth. Why because human beings are able to live everywhere because Allah has given to human beings, aka with which they can do things for themselves in order to be able to survive.
So when Allah sends more rain or less rain, these are what signs for us. There are lessons for us in these things that are lost and data shows us
