So Amelia Duckenfield automatic battery well, woman you celeea and who is the one who sends the winds wish Ron beignet. They are hamady as ones that bring good news before His mercy. Bush Ron is a plural of the word bashira and bashira there she in law, one that brings good news, feminine one that brings good news.
So who is it that sends these wins before the actual mercy?
As good news, a last parameter and what is the mercy refer to rien Illa Houma Allah, then is there a God with Allah to Allah Allahu Exalted is Allah hi above is Allah, I may usually cone over whatever they associate with him.
In this ayah dewpoints are being mentioned in particular, and what are they that first of all, in the darkness of land and see who shows you the way?
Allah shows you the way to your destinations? How, by the means of what he has created? And what is that of
stars and some signposts in the earth as well. Instead of the natural is 16 we learn what I learned that will be nudged me who methadone and landmarks and by the stars they're also guided, that when people are traveling through land and see what are they guided by during the day.
landmarks and during the night, stars
in throttle and arm 97 we learn well, one lady Jelena como new Juma Lita do we feel automatic better battery, when battery
and it is here who has placed for you the stars, so that you may be guided by them through the darkness of the land, and the sea.
So this is the first thing that is mentioned over here, that in those times when you're overcome by darkness, who guides you? Allah subhanaw taala This is in the physical sense, as well as a figurative sense. That literally in the darkness of the night, who shows you the way Allah similarly, in your life, when you're overcome by such situations where you don't know where to go, where to turn, you're completely lost. You don't know what to do, what to leave,
who to turn to, who not to turn to which way to go, you have no idea you're in complete darkness. So who shows you the best option? Who shows you the way? Who makes it easier for you to follow one way to accept one choice? Allah soprano data, he is the one who guides you.
The second point that is mentioned in this ayah is that he is the one who sends the winds that bring good news of his mercy,
that before the rain comes, what happens he sends the good news of rain.
In the previous ayah, what is mentioned that Allah is the one who responds to who the most of the one who is suffering, the one who is distressed. And this ayah is very deeply connected with the previous if you think about it, in the darkness of the night, how do you feel
in a situation where you don't know what to do, how do you feel suffocated, knocked off. When you call upon a lie that moment, who guides you unlock it.
Many times in life, we are put in certain situations where we have no idea what steps to take.
We don't know whether we should say yes or we should say no. Whether we should travel or we should not travel, whether we should commit to do something or we should not commit to do something, whether we should continue doing something or we should discontinue doing something. Darkness, confusion.
So many uncertainties, so many ifs and buts. So in that situation.
If a person turns to Allah at that moment, Allah will guide him alone, show him the way.
And then the second point that is mentioned over here with regards to the coming of the wind before the actual rain.
When does that happen when it's extremely hot, and you're desperate for rain, you're desperate for relief. And when you're so desperate, a lot of panels are what does he do? He sends the good news that very soon. relief is coming. Very soon The weather is going to change very soon The situation is going to change a similarity sometimes in life. We are in extremely difficult situations
where we feel we cannot continue anymore. We feel we cannot handle it by ourselves. It's extremely hot. We become very apprehensive. We cannot tolerate anymore. But what happens a lot depends on it.
He sends good news to us in various forms, that relief will come. So there's a huge lesson in this, that Allah subhanaw taala he has provided for us, our physical sustenance, means for our physical nourishment, but also our spiritual and emotional nourishment and sustenance.
This is who Allah is.
So who is better? Allah, the One who provides you everything you need, physical sustenance, guidance, reassurance, confidence, hope, he is one who sends all of this your way. And on the other hand, are beings who do nothing for you, who is better, Allah is better. So how is it possible? Can there be a God with Allah? No way?
And maybe that will help? Or who is it that initiates the creation? Is he not best, the one who initiates the creation, the one who begins the process of creation, of course, he is better, yet the Oh from bear del Hamza, but I have to do begin to do something, to initiate the process of something.
So who is it that initiates the creation, we can understand this in two ways. That Who is it, that has made everything for the first time,
like for example, he created Adam or Sam from clay. So who initiated that process of creation of human beings from clay alasa Panther.
The second point is that he starts the process of creation of every creation, every human being, is creation begins were in the womb of his mother.
So who starts that process?
Who begins that process? Unless upon
amania widow halka, who is it that initiates the creation? Somewhere you're either who and then he repeats it, when, at the time of resurrection,
woman Yasuko come and who provides you mean a summer he will all from the sky and the earth? from the sky? What is comes from there,
in the form of rain, in the form of light in the form of sunlight? And from the earth? various types of risk.
So who is it that provides you from above and below?
from the sky and the earth? illa homearama? Is it possible? Could there be a God with Allah,
Allah Subhana can say, bring your proof in quantum solidity. If you're really truthful,
the word had to is actually hair and hair is for the purpose of exclamation. And add to the root is hamzat that yet are yet to come and add to your bring.
So this is fairly and has put at the beginning for exclamation. So how to little Hannah, come, bring your proof. Bring your evidence that there is someone else who does all of this as well. There is someone else who has this power as well, in quantum saw the thing if you're really truthful. Now in this ayah, an amazing proof is being given for the oneness of Allah, that Allah alone is the one who originates creation.
Allah alone is the one who begins the process of creation. Is there any laboratory in this dunya where people can blow through into some health into some creation? that they can originate? A single cell? Even they can originate it themselves? No, they cannot. Whenever human beings do anything, what do they do? They borrow from what Allah has already started.
They work on what Allah has already begun. This is what people do. And then when they do something, they think they're great experts.
But the reality is that who begins that process, Allah
who allows it to begin because many times, even if you put the same elements in the same place, still the process will not begin. But sometimes it will begin and other times it will not begin.
So who causes it to begin?
And even when it begins many times it discontinues After some time, like for example, the creation of the human being, it discontinues after a while, but other times it continues.
So who causes that to happen? Allah soprano
who blows the soul into the fetus Allah.
He alone does this. And He alone is also able to repeat the process of creation at the time of resurrection.
In total barrage number 13 we learn in the Who who are you with the way you read indeed
He who originates creation. And he also repeats
in sort of the room is 27. Well, who will lead the yerba will hulka? So Merida, who will Who? Who and where are they, he, and it is he who begins creation. And then he repeats it. He doesn't just do it once he repeats it again and again. Primarily the repetition, it refers to the resurrection. But also if we see that it's not just that one human being exists, no, every other moment, a human being is being born.
So he repeats this process so many times again, and again, well, who one or lady it's easier upon him.
So first of all, Allah is the one who initiates the creation. And then what is mentioned, when may or Zuko can mean a summer he will, and who provides you from the sky and the earth, that Allah has not just made out of this creation and spread them on the earth, and they have nothing to eat and drink? No, he also provides them their sustenance. And this is amazing. If you look at it, all people, even they don't eat the same food. The staple food of every region is different. Even in one country, you go towards the north, people eat a different type of rice, a different type of grain, you go towards the south, you travel a few miles from there, the taste changes, the color changes,
the favorite changes the fruit, there's so much variety.
So even people do not eat the same type of food, you go from one country to another, you will find people eating food that you never imagined was actually edible.
People eating seaweed.
Many times when we come across such food, we're amazed how is it possible, and for others, people eating the brain of a cow or a goat, right? So this variety of risk, who has created this variety of loss,
many years ago coming up,
and not just the human beings, but the animals and the birds, there's some animals that eat plants, other animals that eat other animals, amazing, who provides for each and every single one of them.
Allah subhanaw taala and if it was left for us, to provide ourselves and to provide the rest of the creatures, it would be impossible for us. We cannot even manage feeding one bet that we may have one animal that we may have in our houses, it becomes such a challenge, to feed that animal to take care of that animal. But Allah, He provides for so many creatures,
he is the one who provides from where from the sky and from the earth.
So how is it possible? Could there be a god along with Allah, no way. And if you say that there are other beings who deserve for worship, bring your proof. Bring your evidence that there are other beings who do this along with Allah in quantum society, if you really truthful, per se, layer that will manifest somehow it will delay but in the law, say that no one knows. No one in the heavens and the earth knows the unseen except for Allah. No one that is in the heavens, and no one that is in the earth knows alive a llama except for Allah. So who knows all of the unseen who has the knowledge of the unseen, who's alive, only Allah
when is arona and they do not perceive a Yana UVA are soon when they will be resurrected. Another attribute of a loss of panel data is being mentioned over here. And what is that, that Allah alone is it will leave He alone is the Knower of the unseen,
what is unseen,
that which is hidden from us, that which we cannot know we cannot see.
And remember that there are two types of labor. One is partial labor and the other is absolutely
partial life is that which is hidden from some creatures, but it is known to others. And it is possible for those creatures who do not know to find out about it through some means.
Like for example, we only know what's going on in this room. And if I tell you that I know who's going up the stairs right now, this would be claiming to know what alike it is hidden from me. I cannot tell you. However, I can find out how by calling somebody who's there or by going and checking myself by looking I can find out.
So this is a partial leap.
And if I don't know it, perhaps some other person they know about it.
But the other type of leave is absolutely those matters which are known exclusively to Allah. They're hidden from everyone.
And there is no way that we can ever find out about it. Like for example, when a person is going to die,
when a person is going to be born,
this is what lay, which is absolute, it is known only to a loss of anxiety, it is hidden from everyone else, except for those whom Allah discloses this knowledge to
you understand, except for those whom Allah discloses his knowledge do so for example, and event in the future. We don't know if it's going to happen or not. But there are certain events which for example, Allah subhanaw taala told his prophet about, like, for example, the signs of the Day of Judgment. And then he told us now could we travel forward in time and figure out exactly what's going to happen? No way it's impossible for us, but Allah informed his prophet who informed us
so what do we see over here, that lay your Lambo, Memphis summer where it will all be labor law, no one that is the heavens and the earth can ever know the unseen except for who Allah.
In other words, only Allah has knowledge is complete and perfect. Everyone besides Allah, whether human jinn Angel,
whether they are worshipped by others, others pray to them whoever they are, their knowledge is what it's limited. Only alized knowledge is complete and perfect.
And this is an attribute of perfection, that someone's knowledge is complete. And this is the reason why Allah alone deserves worship.
We learned Incidentally, if 59 that were in the human factor her labx layer Allah Mohammed Illa who were very well behaved bury what matters to me What are caught in a lie or a llama? While I have button field automatic early while recording when I ever seen in Africa be moving
into North Look, man i a 34 we learn in the law her in the whole region was indeed Allah, To Him belongs what the knowledge of the hour no one knows when the Day of Judgment is going to come
where you necessarily is and he sends down the rain. Even if you see the sky covered with clouds, gray heavy clouds, you don't know at which moment The rain is actually going to come. You know zero visa, we are allowable metal or ham, and he knows what is in the wombs. He knows if a woman is bearing something or not many times women themselves are unaware. Many times they take the tests. And those tests don't show anything. Who knows only aligners. Many times people think that it's only one child. But when the baby is born, it's actually twins. Who knows what's in the wombs? A lot. Many times it is said it's going to be a boy, but it happens to be a girl. Many times it is said the
baby is perfect. But the baby is born with some disabilities. Who knows what is exactly in the wombs Allah
will methylene Epson mera taxi bajada and no soul knows what it will earn tomorrow. Do you know where you will go? You might have some plans, but those plans might change they might get out of your control. So who knows about your tomorrow? Only Allah will methylene Epson be a mood and no soul knows in which land it will die.
Because in the law Halima COVID, Indeed Allah, he is on him and he is hobby.
So he alone has a knowledge of the MC. We learned that our shuttle did learn how she said that whoever tells you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knows what is going to happen tomorrow is a liar.
Whoever says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knows what will happen tomorrow. That person is who is a liar, he's uttering a great lie. And she then recited that woman that did enough sun met that taxi boo vida. No soul knows when it will earn tomorrow. So when Allah says this, that no person knows where will earn tomorrow, then how can a person claim that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knows what will happen tomorrow? It's a lie.
And this is the reason why we are forbidden, strictly forbidden from going to fortune tellers to find out about what might happen in the future, because anyone who claims to have the knowledge of the unseen Who is he a liar.
We learn from a hadith in Sahih Muslim
That one otherwise, or the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever goes to a fortune teller, whoever goes to a fortune teller, and asks him something, and believes in his words, will have his prayer rejected for 40 days.
Whoever goes through a fortune teller and asks him, what will happen, and he accepts that he believes in it,
then his prayers will be rejected for how long for 40 days? That person might say, No, no, I'm not going to believe in it. But it's impossible that somebody tells you something might happen in the future, and you don't believe in them.
If somebody tells you, I'll give you something tomorrow, don't you become curious? If somebody tells you, I have a surprise for you, but I'll give it to you after three days? Don't you become curious? Of course.
So it's not possible that a person goes to a fortune teller? And he says, No, I'm not going to believe in him. I just want to see what he says. No, it comes along with the belief that many times people have these fortune cookies and they will read horoscope and things like that. Why? To figure out what's going to happen in the future. And they say things like, No, no, I don't believe in it. Then why are you reading it?
Why? If you don't believe in it, if you think that it's untrue, then why are you wasting your time reading something that is useless? read something better? There are so many more things to read.
So any person who goes through a fortune teller, what do we learn his Salah for 40 days is going to be rejected. We also learn from another Hadees that have a good idea to learn how he narrated that whoever visited a soothsayer and believed in his words, then he has denied the revelation to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
He has rejected the Why?
Because he is doing something that clearly clearly contradicts the law. In the Quran, we are told in a very clear manner, that no one knows the unseen except for who except for Allah.
And if you go to someone who claims to have knowledge of the unseen and you believe in them, then this is what contradicting the teachings of the Quran.
But the rocker illume phylloxera. Rather, their knowledge is arrested concerning the hereafter. Who's those people who deny the hereafter? Those people who reject the hereafter? By the home Fisher came in her rather they're in doubt about it, but whom in her own rather there are concerning it blind?
What does it mean by this ayah
many times the people will come to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asking about what about when the day of judgment will occur, when certain events in the future were going to occur.
And in the previous ayah, what is mentioned that only Allah knows the unseen
what will happen in the future only Allah knows about it.
And those beings whom you worship besides Allah, they don't even have any idea as to when people will be resurrected. They don't even have any idea as to what they will be resurrected, they have no idea as to when the Day of Judgment is going to come. So who knows about this only of law
and those people who do not believe in the Day of Judgment, then what is their case? What is their situation? That belly their rocker and Moon fill? Their knowledge is exhausted when it comes to the hereafter?
The word it down okay is from the roof Hatteras del fra calf, what is dark mean? The depth of something?
What's the evidence for that? In Illuminati in a dark alley, manana.
And dark is primarily used for a rope with which a person descends in water.
You see, even now, when people go mountain climbing, what do they use ropes. As you go on the top of a cliff, for example, and as you begin to descend from there, for instance, what do you need a rope. Now, let's say you begin descending from the mountain with the help of a rope. But what happens the rope is too short, you can still not reach the bottom What do you need?
You need for the rope to be extended.
So what would people do they would have others standing at the other side. And what would they do they would extend the rope. So they would tie another open rope that was attached to the person and as a result, he was able to go deeper and deeper. And this especially they did when a person for example, would descend in a well or for example, they would dive into the water to extract barrels, etc from the water. And even today, this happens that when people go underwater for whatever reason, they are
are tied up with what with a rope. And as they need to go deeper and deeper, the rope is extended for them.
So, duck is to reach the depth of something, how, by joining one part with another.
So it is to descend how, step by step
that you use a rope of, let's say 10 feet, now you need five more feet, so you attach five more feet. And with that, you're able to go 15 feet deep. Let's say you need to go two feet more down than what will you do? attach your rope that is at least two more feet. Right? So this way, step by step, you don't know exactly how deep it is. But by attaching the rope what happens step by step you reach the bottom, you reach the final end, it rock from the same root, what does it Rock me? perception knowledge, when you understand something, when you have a good grasp on something, and even when a person is learning, what does he do? When a person is learning something? What does he
do that, for example, you come to learn of a new Hadees, you connect the knowledge of this Hadees with something that you know, from before,
think about it. Or, for example, you're learning a new concept in grammar. Now, any new concept you learn you have to connect it with what with what you know, previously.
And when you connect the dots, when you're able to connect what you're learning now, with what you already know, then you have a good understanding of something.
And if you keep it all disconnected,
then will you have a good understanding? No way, you have to be able to connect things together. And only then you will have a talk only then you will have a good understanding of something perception.
So over here, belly down ochre at Mohan Phil after this has been understood in two ways that first of all, has their knowledge attained, has their knowledge caught up with
meaning has their knowledge fully comprised of the hereafter? They know every detail about the hereafter. And the only thing they don't know is when it's going to happen. So this is why they're asking.
You understand? Like, for example, if you want to know when exactly your mother is reaching, you want to know the exact time of the flight. And you keep asking when when when when when What are you told? Are you ready? Are you prepared? Have you cooked? Have you cleaned? Have you put everything in order? If you put everything in place? If you haven't done that? And why are you asking? Go and do what you're supposed to do first and then you should be asking. So similarly, but it doesn't occur in Montville, Allah has the knowledge attained, or hasn't caught up with everything concerning the Hereafter, that now they have a reason to ask about the time of its arrival.
No, it's not that they know everything about the hereafter. And the only thing that is missing is the time of its arrival. No, the reason why they asked about the coming of the Hereafter is that balloon Fisher came in. They're in doubt about it. This is why they're asking.
And no, no, no, it's not that they're endowed by alumina or moon, they're completely blind to it.
They're completely oblivious to it. This is why they take it non seriously. And instead of preparing for the Hereafter, what do they do? They ask questions about it as to when it's going to come.
This is one way of understanding this.
Secondly, this is also understood as that it darker, a darker from the dark, the mustard is too dark, it is to reach the limit of something to be exhausted, to reach the limit of something to be exhausted. Like for example, you have the rope you're descending, but then you reach the limit.
So the length is what it's exhausted you cannot go any deeper you cannot go any further. Remember, as he said that the dark is to reach the end of something.
And it is derived from it. delicata Samarra,
it delicata Samara what the salami fruit.
So when the fruit is ripe, and it's ready to be picked,
it has reached the extent of ripeness, it cannot get any more ripe. If you leave it, it's going to start to go bad. Sometimes you also have fruit in your house in your refrigerator outside on the table. And there's a time when it has reached its ripeness. You want it to become soft and juicy and nice and you know fragrant, because many times when you buy fruit, it's not really ripe at that time. So you leave it out for a few days waiting for it to get ripe.
Now when it gets ripe, you have to use it if you don't use it, what's going to happen to it. It's gonna start
Getting back. So it delicata summer is when the fruit is ripe, it's ready to be picked. And then what happens when you pick it when you eat it? When you use it? Then it's gone. it ceases to exist.
The fruit was on the tree. It was ripe you took it. Now where is the fruit? It's gone. It was on the table. You ate it. Now where is it? It's gone, it ceases to exist, it's finished. So but it derocher Elmo and Phil, after their knowledge failed to comprehend the hereafter.
The thing is, that the Hereafter is part of the unseen. It's a world that we cannot see. Right now. It's a world that we cannot have access to right now.
Because any person who dies, Does he ever come back? No, then how can we ever find out about the hereafter?
There are no physical means that we can adopt in order to find out about the hereafter. But what's going to happen? What exactly is going to take place when it will take place? We don't know.
And we cannot find out. What do we need to rely upon in order to find out about the hereafter?
The way the knowledge that Allah has given us, which is why you may not believe they believe in the unseen, that's the first condition.
And when a person does not believe in the unseen, then no matter what he does to find out about the African you find out, no, his effort, his intellect, his knowledge is going to be fully exhausted. And still, he will not be able to find out answers to these big questions.
Which is why people have so many theories, which are weird, which make no sense. And you can break them apart in any way. Why? Because when they don't make the Quran and Sunnah their source with regards to the knowledge of the Hereafter, and what happens, they cannot come to any conclusion. But it does occur in boonville. And as a result, but whom Fisher came in, they remain in doubt concerning it.
And by whom in her own, rather than remain blind to it. You see each and every person, each and every person, he definitely has these two questions. Where did I come from?
And where am I going?
Isn't whether he is a believer, disbeliever young old people do have these questions? Where did I come from? Where was I before? Why am I here? And where am I headed to? Where will I go? Where will I be after I die?
And the answer to these questions is only were in the way Allah subhanaw taala has told us the answers to these questions.
And if a person does not take these answers, and he tries to look for other things, then his intellect will be exhausted, his ability will be exhausted, people will reach their limit. And yet they will not be able to understand the matter of the Hereafter, they will not be able to reach a conclusion.
So what do we learn from this? What's the main lesson of this ayah that Eman in the unseen is a necessity and necessity for who for human beings.
That if we don't believe in the unseen, then no matter what we do, we will still remain in doubt and confusion.
If a person does not believe in the existence of Allah without having seen him,
if a person does not believe in the existence of the angels without having seen them, if a person does not believe in the certainty of the Hereafter, without having seen the Hereafter, will it bring him peace? No way.
You see, the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has given us of himself of whatever knowledge that he's given us, it puts us at ease.
It really brings rest of your mind and heart. And if you had no idea about a lot about the Hereafter, about the his our agenda about now, then we will be in so much confusion, restless or lost in adonia.
So it's a great mercy of Allah that He has told us about these matters. And in order to truly bring comfort and peace to our minds and hearts, we need to believe in the MC.
Okay, we listen to the recitation of these ayat and then we'll continue
Don't slow the thingy.
In a situation where a person is suffering from extreme distress, extreme difficulty, if at that moment a person gets this realization that only Allah can take me out of this problem, he becomes a true motor. Then what happens even though he is going through that difficulty, it will bring him peace, it will bring him discomfort, the sense of peace that I am being taken care of, he will not panic, he will not panic at that moment, he will be relaxed, relaxed in the sense that he has positive thoughts about Allah and he knows that Allah will take care of me. He knows that someone is there for me, he is watching me, he will take care of my problems for me.
So, when a person truly turns upon Allah, in these times in these moments, then he may be going through a lot of pain, but nothing but the name of Allah will come out of his mouth. nothing but positive things will come out of his mouth, he will not say Oh, can I please die now or please put an end to me and just shoot me and finish me know a person will not say such things. He will gasp out of pain. But what will he say Allah? He will say Yeah.
And with that, it will bring him peace and comfort. That nothing else can bring nothing. No tranquilizer, nothing can bring that peace.
That Allahu Allah will not be left wishing he could be shy. That it is only only he who can take me out of this level. She could be shy
