Are the below human a [???]load of agenda? So
I have 51.
Then our last panel data says we'll call Allahu Allah Allah has said, let us do Illa heinous name, do not take to God's meaning do not take for your worship. Do gods?
Does that mean you can worship three gods? No.
Why? Because if you look at it, his name two is the minimum number of plural.
Isn't it? In Arabic? Yes, floral is three and above. But if you look at it, one is one and anything more than one, it's a plural.
And two is the minimum number of that. So if the minimum is not allowed, you think more than that would be allowed? Obviously not.
So a lot has said Loretta Tokido Ella Haynes name, do not take two Gods for worship, meaning only worship one God.
Because in Nima Hua Illa, who were, indeed not, but he is the only one God for Aya, for her booni, so only fear me, you all should only have fear of me, meaning worship only me.
We see that the ancient Persians, the people of Persia, at the time, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The fact is, they used to worship two gods, they had one god of good, and another god of evil, one God of light, and the other God of darkness, it is said that the deity of good, the God of good was known as he has done, and the God of evil was known as a woman.
So they used to worship the gods. But what is the last parameter they say, that do not worship do Gods even do are not allowed?
Because in reality, there is only one God,
there is only one Allah, and he is the only one who deserves worship. If you think of it, our human bodies, they have one head, not to one brain, not to one heart, not to.
Similarly, if there's a car, there's a bus, there's only one driver, isn't it. So if there is an institute, there has to be one person with supreme authority. And if you have too many people with the same level of authority, then what's going to happen? constant conflicts, constant conflicts,
constant differences. One wants to do things one way and the other ones do things the other way.
So when we understand this, in the rest of our lives, that for anything to function properly, there has to be only one supreme being not do even, even to or not acceptable, then why is it that when it comes to religion, when it comes to the matters of the heavens and the earth, we think that there have to be two gods. It's not possible, it is not logical. A las pantallas has inserted MBI, number 20, to locate a female earlier to a llama, la festa data had there been within the heavens and the earth Gods besides Allah, then they both would have been ruined, they would have been destroyed.
As we learned already, until now had all these lessons are mentioned the science of the creation, which demonstrate the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.
That if everything is running together in a system, one whole system, there is only one being behind all of that, and who is that? A loss of friends,
in our cooking, we cannot tolerate another person. Then how is it possible that when it comes to the matters of the heavens and the earth, when it comes to worship, we think there are multiple Gods
one of whom is and it will have, and To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. He is the only owner. He is the only creator whatever Dino as the back end to him is do worship constantly. Edina zero means religion. But it also means worship obedience. So over here, it means worship. obedience.
So to him is do worship, meaning he deserves a dean worship.
How Wesley been constantly, perpetually, while snipers on the roof as well slideback will soon and will solve it when something continuously remains in one state. It does not change it is permanently perpetually in that state. We learned until it was so fast I number nine. What a homer there been Wesley, for them is a punishment that is where sleep meaning perpetual, unending so what our Dino was sleeper, meaning eternally
Forever continuously, who is the only one who deserves worship?
Allah subhanaw taala. From the beginning, all the way to the end, there is no other being who deserves worship at any point in time.
He is the only one who deserves worship Wesley been continuously. Always.
The word worship has also been understood as legit, meaning obligatory,
meaning he's the only one who deserves worship. And this is an obligation. This is why
he's the only one who deserves worship. And this is why Egypt This is mandatory.
And Wesley has also been understood as harmless meaning purely for him.
I felina law he thought the home then is it other than a law that you fear? This is a question and interrogation for the purpose of there'll be for the purpose of reproach and amazement. Third,
that this is strange, that if he's the only owner, if he's the only creator and master,
and if he is the only one who deserves worship constantly, then how can you fear others besides Him, it does not make sense. So we say that it is a part of the heat to fear a law alone.
It is a part of the heat it is a part of the oneness of Allah soprano data that he alone should be feared.
Because until and unless a person only fears Allah, he cannot obey Him.
He cannot worship Him. He cannot give him the highest priority. If a person fears
poverty more than Allah, then what is he going to do? He's going to disregard what Allah has said. And he's going to be more concerned about his poverty.
Similarly, if a person fears people more,
then he will not be able to obey Allah soprano data.
So what prevents people from worshipping Allah subhanaw taala is what the fear of others. So Allah subhanaw taala says affilaite a light at the hole.
Now it doesn't mean that a believer does not have any kind of fear. There are different types of fear. Okay, and experiencing fear is only natural.
We learned about Ibrahim or an s&m, I will Josephine FCU Siva musala Sarang. Also he became fearful in his art, all the profits, normal human beings, they feel fear. But the fear that is discouraged is such fear of others, that prevents a person from obeying a law
that makes a person less fearful of
that fear is not like
one might be coming near mutton feminine law and whatever you have a favor than it is from Allah, any nirma that you have any blessing that you have, whether it is in the form of malbis what you wear, or muskan your dwelling where you live your house or your Makayla what you eat, anything that you have, all the blessings were their personal, their physical, material, intellectual, social,
financial, anything that you have children, wealth, healthy body, every blessing that you have a last pound dialysis formula than it is from Allah.
Only he is one who has given it to you, no one else has given it to you. So my, my second motto, then when harm touches you, when you're suffering from some harm, like poverty or illness, for elated alone, then only to him you cry out for help, then you forget everybody else.
But when you are fearful of others, you forget, you forget to obey Him. But when you're in difficulty, then you call upon only him for LA Ito
and this word that you own is very fitting over here. That is from Jean Hamza. And you are is basically the moving of a cow.
What is it the moving of a cow. And from this, the word you are is used for the loud noises that animals make.
Now animals generally if you go randomly, they won't be moving. Or they won't be making noises.
Like people were just sitting like that people be talking animals don't talk like that. Right? If you go to a bar and you want to hear animals, making noises for no reason, there's always a reason. Either they're afraid or they're hungry, or they're feeling threatened or something like that. That is when they make noise.
So do is to raise one's voice in play in request in supplication.
Raise one's voice, so that a person can be heard.
And at the same time a person is expressing agony and desperation.
So just imagine an animal that has been caught
a deer that has been caught by a lion. Just imagine the kind of noise that that deer will be making.
Or imagine if any other animal has been caught by a predator, what kind of noises would it be making?
Please write, requesting for help. Expressing agony, expressing desperation. This is what you add it. So Allah subhanaw taala says that when you are afflicted by some harm, then you raise your voices, yelping,
requesting his help, screaming out in agony,
for his help. He lay at your own. And notice Li E, meaning you forget everything else, and you only remember him.
Whereas the rest of the time, you forget him, and you remember everything else. But when you're afflicted by some harm, then you only remember him and you forget everything else. See the contrast? Normally when everything is okay, you forget a lot of the later light at the home. But when you're in difficulty, you forget everything else and you remember only Allah.
And we see that even the machine, the people who said partners with Allah, the firmest of polytheists, even they used to pray to a loss penalty only for the removal of distress.
Like the story of Akuma
when he had left Makkah had gone into the ship. And when he was surrounded by the waves, and there was a storm, he realized that if in this situation, I'm only worshipping Allah, and this is what Muhammad Savas has been calling us to, on our lives. This is what I'm running away from. I already do that.
So this is what a lot of parents are saying over here, that if you call upon him at such times, and why do you forget him at other times?
If you know that you need him at these times. Why do you think you don't need him at other times?
If you think you want his help really badly in such situations, then why do you abandon him? Why do you forget about him? at times when you're happy when everything is okay?
Somebody that kashia then when he removes the adversity unconfirmed you either Federico mengambil became usually cone at once a party of you a group of you associates others with their Lord. He is the one who removes the difficulty. But as soon as the difficulty is removed, what is the reaction of some people they begin associating partners with online
now Yes, the machine of Makkah, what would they do? When a difficulty would be removed? They would go and offer a sacrifice to an idol. showing appreciation showing help expressing gratitude.
But how do people do this today? There are times of difficulty they will pray to Allah. And when the difficulty is removed, they will thank everybody or they will say was a doctor. They will say it was the car they will say it was their gold card. They will take was this it was that and they will forget to say 100 and
they will forget to thank Allah Subhana
Allah subhanaw taala says and sort of around 64 holy land who Yuna g Caminha say it is Allah who saves you from it, woman polycarbon. And from every distress, he is one who saves you some time to shikun, yet you still associate others with him. You still think that others are the ones who help you. It's only who helps you. And when a person does that, that after benefiting from the help that Allah has offered him, he turns to other than Allah and he forgets Allah, what is he doing in reality, Leah will be my home. So they will deny what we have given them. Lamb over here is of consequence, that as a result of their shift, what are they doing? They are doing Cofer of what we
have given them. And go for over here means in gratitude
that when they forget to thank a law and they go on thanking everybody else, ignoring a loss of kind of authority in reality, what are they doing?
expressing extreme in gratitude to the favor of Allah?
Just imagine someone helps you.
And later on when everything is okay with you. You don't even call them to thank them.
You don't even send an email to them. What is this ingratitude and alasa penetrator who takes us out of every difficulty if we don't thank him, and this is what extreme ingratitude. What does Allah say Fatima Thoreau. Then go ahead, enjoy. Enjoy this time that you have. So with Darla moon soon you will know and this is a threat. Go ahead. Enjoy. Do whatever you want to
Stay negligent of Allah, remain heedless of Allah and see what happens for so fertile a monsoon, you will know the consequences of your ingratitude.
Where's your aluna? And they assign now certain practices of the mystic intervention that they assigned, they appoint the Michigan Lima for that which What does my refer to the idols? The idols on the worship, they assigned for them lay on the moon, what they do not know.
Man they are the moon has been understood in several ways. That first of all, it refers to the idols whom the machine have no knowledge of.
What does it mean by that? Meaning they have no knowledge about these idols, that these idols, they cannot benefit. They cannot harm them. their beliefs about the idols are based on what pure assumption,
pure assumption, they have no evidence to show that these idols can benefit them, or that they can harm them. Nothing at all.
Lie on the moon, they don't know them. So the fact that they worship their idols is a sign of what ignorance.
Secondly, Lima layer nimona, meaning the machine they set aside for their idols, a portion, the sleeve and a portion which the idols lie on the moon,
which the idols have no knowledge of
the machine, they set aside in asleep, for their gods and their gods have no idea about them. If you put a plate of very nice food, delicious food, very fragrant and colorful food in front of an idol, does he have any idea? Not at all, no idea whatsoever. If you put it on the idol, put it before it, take it away, don't give it the idol does not know anything. Because yesterday it was a rock somewhere in the forest. And today it's carved and painted in the form of a beautiful idol in front of you, he doesn't know and they assign the semen portion a portion of what
portion of what Allah has provided them. Like for example, we learned earlier,
certain animals that were dedicated the idols similarly produce, they would dedicate for the idols. So they set aside a portion of mementos account of what We have provided them
a lie someone who gave him this risk, but who did the dedicated to
idols? This isn't gratitude.
de la he, Allah says, By Allah, let us alone now surely you will definitely be questioned, I'm content of their own, about what you were fabricating.
Meaning all of these practices of yours they are fabrication and you will definitely be questioned about it.
You will be interrogated that Where did you learn this from? Who told you to do this? What's your evidence behind this?
Let us alone arama content afternoon.
So what does this show to us, that the Michigan of maca, they had certain practices which are completely fabricated.
And in them, what would they do? They would set aside portion of food, produce animals for their idols.
And the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gave them all that risk, but they would give it to who other than Allah.
Similarly, if you look at it, Allah is the one who has given us so many things, our abilities, knowledge, faculties, that we have eyes, ears, minds, the ability to speak, the ability to write the ability to comprehend, to remember. And if Allah has given all of these abilities to us, what is expected of us, then we must use them to serve a law.
And we have to check ourselves that how much are we using all of these abilities to serve the religion of Allah? And how much of it are we using it, to serve this dunya to earn this dunya to please other than Allah,
because idle to symbolize what other than Allah?
Think about it. When people go to university, when they want to go for four years, six years, eight years, no big deal, not a problem at all. Very good, excellent investment. However, the person wishes to study the Quran for a year and a half. That seems like such a big deal.
And people think they cannot wait for that long. They cannot take too much time out. They eventually have to complete their studies and eventually have to get married. I'm not saying that going to school is not important. It is important, but we need to do a comparison over here. How much of our time, our energy our money are we spending for the sake of Allah? And how much are we spending for the dunya
isn't that unfair?
When Allah has given us everything, we don't even use a fraction of that for his Deen. That's unfair. That's in gratitude.
And we're going to be questioned about the blessings that Allah has given to us.
How much time did we dedicate it to dunya? And how much time did we dedicate for last?
wager I Luna and they assign Lila he for Allah, another practice of the machine of Mecca that they assign for a lot aluminet daughters.
And Burnett is a plural of bent.
Meaning they say that Allah has daughters,
the machine of Makkah, certain tribes.
They used to think that the angels are the daughters of Allah.
Then it was obviously a fabrication.
This had no evidence behind that this was just their assumption.
And in particular, it was the two tribes of Arabia, the bonacasa and vannucchi. Nana,
they used to believe that the angels are Daughters of Allah. Remember that all of them shigenobu Arabia did not have the same beliefs. Okay.
They were diverse in their beliefs. Some believe that there's no afterlife, like we learned yesterday.
Others believe that no, there is an afterlife, however, we will be given a lot by our Lord. Like we don't intuitively whether it will be larger than the main heroine.
So people have diverse beliefs.
Even about Allah subhanaw taala they had diverse beliefs.
So these two tribes, they used to think that the angels are the daughters of Allah. We don't have I never 19 what Jara Luna Malaika de la Vina humeri bad money in a shiny new Hong Kong setup double Shahada home alone, and they have made the angels who are servants of the Most Merciful females. First of all, they say that the angels are females. Allah says, Did they witness their creation? Have you seen their bodies? Have they seen them that they say that they're females, their testimony will be recorded, if they say that yes, they have seen them will write their testimony, and they will be questioned on the Day of Judgment.
So, they assigned for Allah daughters,
Allah Subhana, who glorified as he, why is this mentioned over here
to declare his purity from such things from such Association, that he does not have any daughters and he is free from the deficiency of wanting children. Who wants children
who wants children, creatures, human beings, animals, why? Because they have a need to fulfill. And they want that somebody should be there to inherit their wealth. Somebody should be there to look after them when they have grown older.
Wanting children is a weakness. Remember that.
And alasa panel data is far above this weakness.
He's above that weakness. When a person has a child. You see how coward they become.
Remember that Heidi's that children they make people cowards.
They make people cowards. How that for example, a woman she's so bold, she's so strong, she can do whatever she want one baby she has, and she's unable to continue with her work. She has fears she's not able to drive, she's not able to go she's afraid the baby's gonna start crying, and he's gonna be hungry, and he's gonna need a diaper change. So having children is a big weakness.
Children make a person weak. And Allah subhanaw taala is above that weakness. He does not need children.
Similarly, if a person has a child, he cannot stay a day without that child.
Parents are always concerned about their children. My child is on eating these days. He's sick these days. He has to go to school. He's not doing his homework. One thing after the other the worries are endless. They continue. You know, sometimes parents that only when children are small, then they'll be worried about the children. But as the children grow older, the worry is they only increase even when the children are married and they have their children still their parents are worried about them. So Allah subhanaw taala is above this need, he is above this weakness.
So for Hannah who Glorified is He, one of them is the one
and they have whatever they desire. What does it mean by this?
The Arabs what would they like for themselves? Boys? Allah says, Who ascribe to Allah daughters and for yourselves. You have whatever you desire. Yes, stone is on the roof after seeing how you are sheen how well from the word show and show what is desire. And it's such a desire. Which enough says naturally
you don't have to tell yourself to eat. You don't have to tell yourself to drink. You don't have to tell yourself to be thirsty. Right? thirst is a desire from within. Hunger is a desire from within.
So what am I a stone, and they have whatever they desire.
We see the machine of Makkah, they ascribed daughters to a loss of parameter.
So first of all, that is illogical, because Allah is above the need of having children.
Secondly, they would like daughters for a lot, but for themselves, they would like sons. This is double standards.
So, this belief that Allah has daughters, this has been refuted in two ways.
What that first of all, so the Hannibal and secondly, while home is the home,
if you think about it, any person whom you like any person whom you respect, you have a high regard for them. What do you like for them?
What you like for yourself? Right? If they are really important to you, you will give them what you like for yourself. And something that you don't like for yourself, you will not even bring before them. Correct.
Now, how is it that you don't like daughters for yourself and your daughters for Allah?
Remember, these ayat, daughters are not being presented in a bad way. The point of this is not to show that daughters are less valuable than sons.
The point is to show the contradiction that these people had in their beliefs.
The illogic of what they were doing,
what either Bushido I had him and when one of them is informed is given the good news with Sheila from Bashara when one of them is given the good news bill onset of a female
when one of them is given the good news that a daughter has been born for him, that his wife has given birth to a baby girl. What happens to him?
Allah says one language who must what then his face becomes dark, well, who are Kilim? And he suppresses grief, this is how upset he becomes. This is how sad he is that immediately you see the expressions coming on his face. Voila, from the roof, Tetris lamb lamb. And remember, Allah is to do something during the day because that is when there is will.
But from this Lola is also to become to continue to happen.
So, Lola was who his fears became Muslim, Muslim from the newsletters seen while that sad and sad is to become black.
And most what is one that is made black one that is Stern, black, one that goes dark.
because of sorrow, because of sadness.
Just as if a person gets embarrassed, their face turns red, right?
So many times the emotions that a person is experiencing, they come on his face automatically. Right. So most What then is when a person is so grief stricken, he is so sad. He is so worried that you can see his facial expressions changing, you can see the color of his face change.
Like for example, sometimes people go pale, isn't it?
When a person is extremely fearful, he goes bad, he loses all color.
Similarly, when a person is extremely sad, his face becomes gloomy.
One large room is what the what we're killing Colleen is one who is suppressing anger, or one who is suppressing grief.
So he is full of sorrow. He is full of grief. He is full of anger. He is trying to keep it inside. And he remained silent. Because of the intensity of the grief that he feels
at home was what we're killing. He just becomes silent.
He doesn't say Really?
Sure. He doesn't say Alhamdulillah. He didn't say thank god and i have a beautiful baby girl. He does not give any response. He just becomes silent. He is that upset. He is so sad.
So a lot of times are the same. This is what happens to you. When you find out that a daughter has been born to you and you
ascribe daughters to Allah. how unfair is this? What a contradiction you have
