lesson number 91 SoTL are off. And number 54 to 72.
In narangba, como la who ledi indeed, your Lord is Allah,
the One who had a customer what he was the one who created the heavens and the earth, in how long he said that the A Yemen in six days
in North Dakota, feeding all mankind, or people, your Lord for meeting your harlot, your Malik your mood a bit, as well as your mood will be the one who takes care of you, the one who provides for you, the one who created you, who is he? He is Allah.
And Allah is an either, meaning the one and only true God, there may be many who are worshipped. But Allah is the only one who is really an ala, he is the only true healer. And who is
the one whom people turn to, in order for the fulfillment of their wishes.
The one from whom people expect their gain as well as their loss from
the one to whom the people during to seeking his nearness seeking his closeness.
So your Lord is Allah. And who is he and Lady Hello kasana what you will love. The one whom you worship is the one who created the heavens and the earth.
Hanako is from Hulk, and Hulk is to create something to bring it into existence.
And in particular, the word Hulk gives a sense of planning as well.
That it's not just to bring something into existence without following a particular order, or without having a plan. But Hulk is to create something with a plan to follow an orderly fashion, in creating something in making something.
So he is the one who created the heavens and the earth, He didn't just randomly put them together. But there's a particular order, a particular fashion in which he created them.
Watch the heavens as well as the earth.
And the sun earth as we know, it refers to the island, the world that is above us.
The sky is what we see. But beyond that are many levels of the sky as well, which are how many seven?
And he has also created the earth.
And an owl refers to the world that is beneath us.
In How long did He create all of this fi sit at a yummy in six days? What does that show that he created all of this gradually, with planning, giving it importance, because for a lot of panels are there to create the biggest of things and the smallest of things, he can just say corn, and it would come into existence within a few moments. But if he spent six days, if he dedicated six days to create the heavens and the earth, what does that show the importance that Allah subhanaw taala gave to the creation of the heavens and the earth.
So Allah created the heavens and the earth in six days.
Now, the word a yen, is the plural of yo
and what is your mean? day
from one sunset to the other sunset 24 hours as we know it, and this day is the day off duty of this earth.
However, depending on the location, for instance, another planet, the length of the day would be different.
So on the surface of the earth, the day is 24 hours. But depending on different places, the length of the day could vary.
And we know that Allah subhanaw taala is young is different in its length.
We learn in selected hedge number 47 that what in the yelman or in the ROB Baker can elfi sanity methadone and indeed the day near your Lord is like 1000 years of what you count. So our 1000 years are like one day of all of a loss upended. Similarly in sort of touch the eye number five return. So my arrow to La heafy, Yeoman can amico del alpha sanity may matter doing
that then it ascends to him in a day, whose length is alpha
First center 1000 years.
So the length of the day may vary.
where Allah subhanaw taala says over here that he created the heavens and the earth in six days, a low RPM, what the length of those days were
a low RPM, whether it was 24 hours, it was more or less, Allah knows best.
And which were these days?
We learned from several Hadees
there is a hadith that is reported in Sahih Muslim,
in which we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah created the dust on Saturday.
So he began the process when on Saturday, and he created the mountains on Sunday.
Do you see the planning the dust first than the mountains to stabilize the earth?
And then he created the trees on Monday.
And then he created the unpleasant things on Tuesday. And he created light on Wednesday.
And he spread the creatures throughout it on Thursday. Because obviously, if the creatures are there before light before their sustenance, how would they survive?
So he spread the creatures throughout it on Thursday.
And he created Adam or his salon after us on Friday.
So he created all of this. And this is a hadith as recorded in Sahih Muslim because I'm sure many of you haven't heard of this. So I'm giving you the reference for it. It's a hate Muslim.
So must aware.
Then he rose analog upon the throne. What does sama indicate? sequence of events.
That then when he created the heavens and the earth after that, is the law of heroes over the throne
is the way it's from the rooms that are seen? Well yeah.
And so we see what it means to become equal to become level.
And if there were either when the word is the word is followed by Allah,
then it gives a specific meaning, what meaning is it
some have given at least 15 different meanings of Easter, Anna, but I'll give you just a few basic important ones.
One is Easter Island means either to rise above,
what does it mean to rise above
secondly, is to our other gives the meaning of a stiff claw as well, which means to become stable, to take position and settle somewhere.
In particular, it is to settle somewhere upon rising up to it.
So for example, this word is also used for embarking a vehicle or getting onto a mount because a person rises upwards. And then he settled, isn't it?
So instead of the zone of it, number 13 we learned letus the war I love it
so that you become settled on what on the backs of the animals that you are writing. If you ever ridden a horse, what do you have to do?
You have to rise up to the back and then you sit onto it. And then you have to settle yourself over there. So my death guru near my thought have become either Stairway to morality. And when you have completely settled on it, then what do you do? You remember the name of your Lord with the fullness of the hand and Lady Sahar Alana Heather acuna. lahoma.
So over here, when a lot of parents are that says, So Mr. Allah, what does it mean? That then he settled on his earth,
He rose above, and he settled on the throne.
And the word of is the throne is the seat of the king.
Where the king sits, where the ruler, the master where he sets
and the actual velocity final data is the greatest creation of his
it's the greatest creation. It's the biggest in its size. And according to a hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the seven heavens
and the earth are nothing compared to the kursi except like a ring that is thrown on the ground in a desert.
And the size of the ouch compared to the kursi is like the size of the desert compared to the rink.
So this is how big the option of a loss penalty is.
Over here loss apparent it says that semester and then he
He rolls over his throne. And he settled over there. He took position over there. What does it mean by this? Exactly? How did this happen?
Now, the fact is that we don't know how exactly this happened. But we know that Allah subhanaw taala rose, and he settled in the manner that befits him in a manner that benefits him.
A person came to Mr. Malik. And he asked him a watchman and an option stowa How did that happen? That Amanda was merciful on the throne, he rose up, and he settled. What does it mean by that?
Mr. Malik, he lowered his head for a while. And he looked up to him. And he said, St. Maarten
the fact that Allah subhanaw taala rose over that is known to us. Well, cave, how exactly that happened. That is module, meaning we are unaware of it that's unknown.
was to add on who bidder and asking about it is an innovation, while he man will be he wired and believing in it is mandatory?
Why did he give this response?
Because Mr. Malik would not tolerate any kind of mischief in his matchless in his gathering. He taught in a Masjid of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And if people would come up and ask such questions, what's the objective of this question? What's the purpose? How did Allah rise over his throne? Was he below before? And then he went upwards? What's the purpose? What's the objective of talking about these things? And what is the benefit? Even if you find out?
Is it going to increase in your email? Is it going to help you pray better? Is it going to teach you to resign, which is going to be a means of forgiveness for your sins? No. There is no benefit in this whatsoever in such a question. And these questions were never asked by the Sahaba of the learn.
The Quran was being revealed right before them. But they never asked such questions, not because they didn't use their mind. But because they didn't find asking such questions relevant at all.
And really, there has been so much debate, so much controversy over this issue, over the course of Islamic history,
that some have gone to the extent of denying the fact that a lot of erodes over his throne,
some have gone to the extent of describing how he did it. And Allah subhanaw taala is beyond any description that does not fit him.
And there is no point in discussing such things. Because even if you say something, can you verify it? No. Because the Prophet said medicine was not there anymore. He's not there anymore. The Sahaba they never asked such questions. Whatever questions they asked what was the objective
that we know what to do? It should benefit our actions in some way or the other.
We don't insert the Zuma I never 18 but Allah subhanaw taala says, and Medina esta mujer, una Cola, Fire TV Runa Santa, those people who listen to the speech and follow the best of it,
meaning their focus when listening to the Quran is what can I learn from this? How can I act upon it? And that is true intelligence. We think intelligence is in questioning about strange things about irrelevant things. But true intelligence is that when a person learns something, and he takes a lesson out of for himself, and he acts upon it,
that is true intelligence. And that is what was in the Sahaba.
So later on, when people began asking such questions, Mr. Malik, he didn't tolerate that at all.
And it is either in the case of Mr. Malik, he had some of his students who were very huge, very big.
And he had appointed them as guards. And if anybody asks such questions, he would call them and they will take them away.
Why? Because this could not be tolerated in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
So some of us to Allah,
He rose over his throne. What's the objective of saying this over here? What's the purpose?
That Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens and the earth.
And he gave it so much importance. And then after that, he rose over his throne.
And when the king is on his throne, what does it mean? That he is running the affairs? He's taken office, he's running the affairs. So last panatela, after creating the heavens and the earth, He didn't forget them. He didn't ignore them.
No, he is running the affairs to such an extent that you should lay ill and
he causes the night to cover over the day. Yoshi he covers
It's from the roof cutters lane chain yet Alicia What does the shower mean a covering. So you'll see he covers a Laila the night onto off onto a narrow onto the day
how that the day is there and slowly and gradually what happens the night takes over.
The light of the day goes as the night covers the day
as the night comes in, and takes over the light of the day.
And imagine this is something that a lot of panels are causes to happen every single day. And not just where we live, but all over the earth.
This is how much attention he pays to the earth that he has created.
Yoshi Leyland now however,
we don't Ancelotti has seen a number 37
Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I have to level one lane
and assigned for them is the night. What that nestler who mean who now have we removed from it the light of the day for either who Mosley moon, so they are left in darkness.
And he causes this to happen every single day. Just imagine if the day is permanent, or the night is permanent.
Or if the day came in a second, just like a light is turned on in the middle of the night.
What does it do? It bothers your eyes, it's difficult for you to see, when you wake up in the middle of the night and you have to go to the washroom and you turn the light on, it's difficult for you to see. So this is a great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he's slowly and gradually causes the knight to cover over the day. This is his great mercy
yopu it seeks it yellowbook from the fetters for land, but who seeks it
First of all, it can be understood as that the lane the night it seeks the day
or yolu the day it seeks the night.
What does it mean by seeking that it runs after it is as though it is running to catch it.
So in a way yellowblue it gives a sense of constant rotation of the night and the day that the night goes and it's being chased by the day. The day goes and it's been chased by the night.
So constantly the night and they are coming and going in rotation.
So Yakubu each runs after it has eaten rapidly.
The word has eaten is from the new fetters, has author
and has his to incite to encourage
it is to encourage someone to do something and has ease is to seek something quickly and rapidly
to seek something quickly and rapidly.
So, yes or no who has Isa each one is following the other quickly is trying to catch up with the other quickly.
So, in other words, the night is not permanent, the day is not permanent.
And the words yet a logo who has Isa This indicates that the entire world is not on the same schedule. In the sense that if there is night in one place, that means there is day in another place. And that means there is night in another place and constantly This is rotating
yattalunga who has these are each is chasing the other quickly, rapidly swiftly
was shumsa well Pamela, and has eaten has also been understood as that each one is going after the other. Why her Thiessen swiftly obeying a loss of parameter.
Each one comes at its proper time. The night comes at the time that is scheduled for it.
And it leaves at the time that is scheduled for it.
Yoshi Leyland, the Hara yalova, who has either just in a few words, the whole system of the night and the day has been explained to us so you can see it before your eyes. And in some pictures of the world that you can see. Sometimes part of the Earth is glowing and the rest of it is in darkness.
And if there's ever a video that you see, then it shows the rotation of the night and the day. There was one that someone sent me in that they were showing about air traffic.
And instead of focusing on the air traffic, I was looking at how the night and the day were coming and going. That was so beautiful.
So you'll see later in the hour he covers the night onto the day he Upolu has he
was shumsa will come over and the sun and the moon meaning and he is the one who created the sun and the moon. Why are they mentioned because it is because of the sun and the moon.
That the night and the day, come and go.
One no Juma and the stars me He also created the stars, plural of the word, Ninja. And remember the word najem is used for all types of stars,
whether they're very tiny, or they're big.
So he is the one who created the stars.
And all of them are with Sahara team ones that are subjected the m&e by his command.
All of them are subjected to the command of a loss apprentice
was a hot is a Florida muscle holla from the root at Racine, CA. Sahara, Sahara, the seed
is to compel someone to do some work,
to subject someone do some work.
It is to make something or someone serviceable. So for example, there is an animal, if it's in the wild, can you have any control over? No. But if the same animal you tame you train,
then when you command it something it listens, it obeys, isn't it? When you put the saddle over the horse that is tame that is trained, it's not going to rebel. But if it's a wild horse, it's not even going to let you come close to it.
So muscle heart, muscle heart is that which is kept under obedience, that which has been harnessed and has been compelled to some work. It is made serviceable, it is made useful.
It is made useful.
So Allah has objected the sun, the moon, the stars, all of them are subjected to one B and D, do his command
that they are under his control. Whatever he commands them, whatever he commands them, that's exactly what they do. They don't follow their own will. They don't follow their own desire that has answers to that I don't want to go today. Or the moon says I don't want to show up to get no each one has to follow the commands of Allah penalty. Why? Because all of them are Muslim.
And they're also called Musa Herat. Why? Because they're serviceable for all in the universe. Everyone in the earth benefits from the sun.
Everyone in the earth benefits from the moon. And all of them are subjected to the command of Allah soprano Tada. And they're moving according to a set routine according to a set schedule.
So the fact that they are bound to a particular schedule, what does that show? They are Mazel Herat. The fact they're bound to a particular schedule. They don't come and go according to their will. Whatever Allah commands whatever schedule Allah has said, that's exactly what happens.
We are in sort of Tip Number 40 that will call loan fee Fennec Iniesta, Hoon,
or cola and all of them. The sun, the moon, the stars, all of them are fee Falcon, yes, balloon, they are in an orbit, constantly going constantly swimming, constantly floating, constantly moving.
All of them, the sun, the moon, the stars, they are in an orbit.
What does it show
that everything in this universe is constantly on the move is working according to a schedule. Everything, whether it is the night or the day, or it is a stars, the sun, the moon, everything is moving according to a schedule.
If you look at the trees,
if you look at the plants, if you look at the animals, they're constantly on the move, moving from one stage of life to the next one season to the next.
They're going leaves, then they're going fruit, then they're dying. And then the next year again in the spring, they're coming alive.
If you look at animals,
winter comes, they migrate birds, they migrate,
summer comes, they come back again, they go to a particular place to lay their eggs, they go to a particular place to live, to eat.
So each creation is constantly on the move, changing from one state to the next.
and this is the system that allows the panel data has set for his creation.
Now what will happen to the human being who refuses to accept change? What will happen to that human being can he survive? No.
What will happen to that human being who becomes lazy, who does not move? Who does not wish to be productive? Who does not wish to
move from one stage of life to the next and continue to grow and prosper.
He's not going to be able to survive. The creation that our last penetrator has created is constantly moving, constantly growing, constantly improving.
And the same is also expected of men. We haven't given time, energy resources so that we do something as well.
Everything is muscle Herat, the armory at his command.
And Allah who Hulk, unquestionably, what does Allah mean?
It's helped them be.
It gives a sense of Listen, beware, know this for sure.
There's no doubt about this.
That level halco To Him belongs the Hulk
level Hulk, meaning there is no one to share with him in the characteristic of Hulk.
And what does it mean by Hulk Hulk has been understood in two ways. First of all, that all creation belongs to who?
To Allah soprano.
Who is the Malik of all creation,
Secondly, alcohol has been understood as the process of creation, the act of creation.
Who does it only allows
only Allah subhanaw taala, his alcoholic, alcoholic, and no one else can dare to compete with him in this characteristic of his
and those who try to compete with him and this characteristic of is, they also try to create in the sense that they try to create something in competition with what Allah subhanaw taala has created, then such people will be punished with the severe punishment on the Day of Judgment,
they'll be told to blow life into what they had created.
Because Allah the whole Hulk, this right is exclusively his.
You see, there are many, many characteristics of a loss of panatela.
For example, He is working,
he is early, some names and attributes characteristics of a loss of manual data. We are to aspire to adopt those as well to develop those as well as human beings. If Allah shows mercy, what does it mean? We're also to show mercy.
But there are some characteristics of a loss of panel data which are exclusively for him, for instance,
being proud that is exclusively for him.
Similarly, Hulk, it is exclusively for him.
If anyone tries to become great, a lot is not tolerated. A lot will humiliate that person.
Similarly, if someone tries to create in competition with what Allah has created,
then even that will not be tolerated. Why because Elena hulan.
This is why the scholars have said that if you do have to draw something, for instance, or you do have to make a sculpture of something that makes sure it is not of something that is living, of a living being why, because a living being has roots in it, it moves. And there are people who made sculptures and they said, speak, that you've been made so perfectly, that the only thing that is missing in you is the ability to speak. So go ahead and speak I've made you so perfectly.
I've sculpted you so perfectly and beautifully.
So, this is when it is in competition with what a las panatela has created and that is not permissible for us.
However, if it is a drawing an artwork of something that is living, for instance, a bird, a person, then we have to make sure that it is not a complete image, a complete picture. Like for example, in your presentations everyday What do you see people right, but do they have faces? Do they have fingers? No.
It's just an image that shows okay this is a person, but if the face is made, the eyes are shown the hair is made, then that is trying to compete with what Allah created. And that is not permissible. Why? Because Allah the whole Hulk,
the sliver of Hulk is his exclusively non shares that with him, and he does not tolerate that either.
So Allahu hongkou, while omro as well as the command,
meaning Unruh also belongs exclusively to a loss of data. What does he mean by that?
First of all, is that whatever he wishes to do with his creation, however, he wishes to manage and run his creation, who decides a loss pendant,
which is why he is not just provided us with for example for the sign
In the moon, the night and the day, there isn't just a schedule to follow. Similarly for us, he hasn't just provided us with our food and the way that our body works.
But at the same time, he has also given us shutter guidelines.
He has also given us commands as to how to live.
So, decision commandment belongs to who Allah subhanaw taala. He commands as to how your body runs, as to how your body functions as to how your facial features are, for example.
And at the same time, he has also commanded us as to how we must live, how we must behave, what we must eat.
So Allah, Allah, who will help you, while
the anger is also only for a loss of penalty, he is the one who manages and runs everything.
About Nicola who bless it is Allah, Who is he
mean that up afterwards? And remember, I live in Florida for Ireland.
And what does Ireland mean?
Basically, Ireland is from Ireland, which is assigned
anything that points to its creator.
And I mean refers to everything besides almost.
Because everything is the creation of Allah subhanaw taala.
Therefore everything, whether it is the humans, or the ends, or the plants, or the clouds, or the rocks, or the heavenly bodies, the angels, the jinn, all of them are what different different worlds
and who is the rub of all of these worlds? Allah spent.
When you look up, it's like a world above you. When you look down to the world below you, when you look around, that's another world.
There is another world with the jinn of the angels we don't see. So who is the master, the owner, the creator of all of these worlds? Almost.
So we see that in this ayah many I at Coney have been mentioned where I add Kony
signs in the universe, that point to the existence the Lordship of alasa Panther.
And over here, Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us as to how to think how to reflect on these ayat. And realize from them, the fact that Allah Allahu Allah, that we should reflect on the creation that is around us that is within us. And we should come to the conclusion that Hulk, the matter of health belongs exclusively to Allah subhanaw taala seminary who runs everything who has the command, Allah soprano.
And because of that,
develop a lot of what it mean. Bless it is he the Lord of the words
that he said in his application in the Torah, that Allahumma Kalman cuckoo Wallah can handle what alayka you Gerald ongaku as Luca Minal Heidi colleague, was able to become an shadrick only.
He would say that Oh Allah, yours is all the kingdom.
Allahu Melaka, Molko cola. All milk belongs to Allah soprano.
And for you is all praise, what I can do for you is all praise. What are your general um, rucola. And yours is the ownership of all affairs as well meaning every affair is going to be returned to you. Why? Because Allahu halco? Well, Andrew, and he said, I asked you for all types of good and seek refuge with you from all types of people. So what's the main lesson in this ayah for us?
What's the main lesson? Or what are the different lessons
that everything has a schedule
everything, which is why it is so productive, which is why things are so smooth, which is why there is no chaos. So the same, we should also adopt in our lives. If we want our days or weeks, our weekends to be productive, then we have to make sure that we also follow some sort of schedule. And this schedule is not something that we follow once only. We follow it for one day and the next day we take a break. No, it has to be constant. It has to be constant and if you don't follow a schedule, then you will not be able to achieve much. There won't be peace, there won't be happiness or comfort in your life. Because if you don't have a schedule than what happens Your life is full of
stress. Isn't your full of stress.
Once they were just having discussion without ever saying to my son, that
Dad bought it to me. And
he said, Okay, dad give it to you. But who gave to that? her, her grandmother gave it to her, and who gave the grandmother and a login to her. So get back to he's the hardest worker ever, you're getting in the dunya, whatever you're trying to perceive. Imagine everything is connected, and it is the end, and that is your holiday. He is the one
that changes the only thing that is constant in life. And everything in this dunya is temporary, everything and it is something that we're showing day in and day out, which shows that if we undergo some change in life, that we are in one state today, and tomorrow we're in another state. Yesterday, you were 19 years old, and now you're 20 Yes, it's very difficult for some people to accept yesterday you were 29. Today, you're 30 accept that change. Stop there No, there is no stopping stopping is only at the time of death. So accept the change. Because only when you accept that change, then will you be able to use your life and whatever Lost Planet it has given to
One more very important lesson from Gaia is that when everything when the entire creation is under a loss of
Atlanta when Falcon will dump the entire creation is under him and his obedient to Him
than the human being. He should also become obedient to almost
because just imagine the entire creation is on one side, being obedient to Allah. And there is this human being one creation one person and he's trying to rebel.
So what befits The human being is also that he should submit to Allah.
Okay, the matter of drawings, sculptures and taking pictures. I just wanted to mention to this particular point that Allah who Hulk, when it comes to drawing and making sculptures that is exclusively the right of Allah subhanaw taala.
So a person should never do that, while competing with a loss predator. And just to clarify one thing, again, that some scholars have allowed, drawing, but sculptures, they have not allowed at all, like 3d form. It's not permissible according to them.
But when it comes to taking pictures, since you're not drawing it, you're only taking an image of what Allah has created.
You're not competing.
But if a person starts to take pride in his photography,
and he is, for instance, selling his photography, well, you didn't really make that scene, a lot made it
and you're putting your name on it, you're taking pride in that, then it goes towards the dangerous side.
So if a person is taking a pitcher for a relevant reason for a genuine reason, and with that he is showing to people how beautiful Allah's creation is, then definitely there is goodness in that. But if a person is taking pride in what pictures he's taken, and he's giving the credit to his camera, and to himself,
then that is not giving credit where credit is due.
