Our other bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim la flamme meme Alif Lam Meem Valley Kalki tabula rasa fi This is the Book about which there is no doubt who the little more keen a guidance for those conscious of Allah and Lavina you may know in a beloved ape who believe in the unseen way up Munna Salat, established prayer woman Melrose Akane, whom you and feel alone and spend out of what We have provided for them. While Lavina you may know not be my own Ziller e Lake and who believe in what has been revealed to you, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one our own Zilla min Kubelik and what was revealed before you were Bill Herati, whom you pinyon and of the Hereafter,

00:01:02 --> 00:02:03

they are certain hola Iike who didn't miss a beat him? Those are upon right guidance from their Lord, what will an ICA who will mostly Hone and it is those who are the successful Surah Al Baqarah begins with amazing letters. Elif Lam Meem these letters are well known letters of the Arabic language, and here they are recited as more Katara meaning in a disjointed way. You read each letter separately, because that is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught its recitation so you don't recite it as alum or a Lima or something like that. No, you recite it as Elif lamb and me, and these letters are known as Hooroo, Makoto, Bharat, the disjointed letters, and they appear only at

00:02:03 --> 00:02:50

the beginning of some Surah of the Quran. And these are different letters that come in different combinations. So for example, sort of the dakara begins with Alif Lam Meem surah. Sod begins with just solid sort of cloth begins with just cough, you have a live Lam Meem raw, you have how mean? You have known. So there's different combinations, all right, and different letters that come at the beginning of some sorrows of the Quran. Now, what do these letters mean? We don't know because the prophets Allah who already he was salam did not specify a meaning for them. And in the Arabic language, these letters when they are read in this way, they do not necessarily have a meaning. Now,

00:02:50 --> 00:03:37

much has been said and discussed about their meanings. Some have said that this is you know, names of Allah or names of the sutras or names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or that you know, these are symbols it's, but this is very dangerous, because this is the Quran and we should refrain from talking about the Quran, the speech of Allah without knowledge. In surah Aarav Ayah 33 Allah subhanaw taala told us that in namaha, Rama Robbie, that my Lord has forbidden and certain things are mentioned and the last thing that's mentioned in the idea is that we're under Kulu or Allah Allah He may Allah Tala moon that you say about Allah what you do not know. So this is

00:03:37 --> 00:04:28

something that Allah has forbidden to us that we say about Allah what we don't know. So to say that these letters are, you know, a certain code, or that they are the name of something that would be speaking without knowledge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us something about these letters though. And what did he say? He said Mankato, a health fair mean kita biller that whoever recites a letter A health from the book of Allah, then he receives a good deed and a good deed gets a 10 fold reword. And he said, I do not say that Alif Lam meme is a health is a letter. But I say that Elif is a health it's a letter. Well, lamb health, lamb is a letter, meme is a letter. So the

00:04:28 --> 00:04:59

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us and this hadith that first of all, these are letters, right? They are hooks, they're not symbols. They're not riddles, they're not codes. They're not acronyms, no, these are letters. And we learn that even if we don't know their meaning, yes, we believe in them. And we should know that reciting them is rewardable. And this shows us that the very recitation of the Quran is rewardable Even if a person does not under

00:05:00 --> 00:05:48

send its meaning. Now the thing is that every word every letter of the Quran is purposeful. Because it is, after all, the speech of Allah wa Mahieu a bill hasn't it's not entertainment, it's not amusement. This is the speech of Allah. So if there are certain letters in the book of Allah, they have a purpose. So what are some benefits of hoof Macatawa? While the Roma have listed many benefits, and these benefits are, for example, that because they appear at the beginning of the sutra, and they are recited with mud, right, meaning when you say lamb me, right, you're supposed to make the mud properly six counts. So when you recite it in this way, then what happens is that the

00:05:48 --> 00:06:40

people who may have been distracted, all of a sudden, they become attentive. So one benefit is that they draw the attention of the listener. Another benefit is that these letters remind us that we are in need of divine revelation that we don't know something unless we are informed about it, we are given knowledge about it. Because we can use our brain we can try to come up with different explanations and different theories about the meaning of these letters. But can we ever claim that this for sure is the meaning of these letters? No, we can never claimed that. So this is a reminder that you don't know everything. This is a reminder that humbles us that we are in need of being

00:06:40 --> 00:07:34

taught being told what is truly factual. And these letters they're also a challenge to people that you know, the Quran is composed of these letters, letters that you are familiar with a live learn meme raw ha meme mine seen cough. These letters are familiar to you, you use them in your language, you use them to express yourself, but you can never come up with something that is like the Quran. So these letters, Elif LAN meme, right at the beginning, as we open up Surah Baqarah we are reminded of how little we know we are taught about the need of learning, learning divine knowledge, and we are reminded of the miracle of the Quran, that this is truly a divine scripture that is beyond the

00:07:34 --> 00:08:32

power beyond the ability of people that they can never bring something like this Quran Alif Lam Meem Valley Kalki, taboo love labor fi who the Lynmouth Ducane This is the Book about which there is no doubt a guidance for those conscious of Allah that Lika means that now typically the word valleca is used to point to something that is distant, that is absent All right. And this is the more common usage of the word valleca that it is ishara Guillain Barre de la. So that he Calcutta means that book, all right, and Kitab here means book as in revealed scripture. The word Kitab means revealed scripture. So for example, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the toad dot Allah revealed the Injeel that

00:08:32 --> 00:09:21

he or Zoa JAL revealed, as Abood, and he is the one who has revealed the Quran. So that book that scripture, and that he goes use because the torah was revealed a long time ago, right? And God was revealed a long time ago. So that book, yes, it's in a distance, right meaning hundreds of years ago, 1000s of years ago, so that book loughrea Buffy, there is no doubt in it, that Allah is the One who revealed it. And Allah is the One who revealed it for people's guidance. So one thing that we can learn from this is that Allah has sent revelation to guide humanity. The Quran is not the first book, the Quran is not the first revelation, Allah subhanaw taala has revealed many scriptures

00:09:21 --> 00:09:59

before, but what was the purpose of those scriptures? Who then Lynmouth the cane, they were for the purpose of guidance. Now, going back to the Malika remember I told you that typically the word is used to refer to something that is distant that is far. Now sometimes the word valleca is also used to point to something that is near that is present, right and ishara it'll carry will help what is near and present, which is why you will see in the running translation it says, this is the book right? Now I told you that valley car actually means that but sometimes

00:10:00 --> 00:10:59

to remember that it's also used to point to something that is near. But why is this word being used to point to something that is near, because the purpose over here is to show respect to the object, that valley, Calcutta, that great book, that great book, and this now is referring to the Quran, that, that he calculated this great book which is exalted which is supreme, which is so glorious, that is before you that you are listening to the Quran which the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam is reciting to you. This book is truly the book that he can look it up. This is the book. This is the great, noble, glorious, Rosie's book. And when you know people speak like this in Arabic, so for

00:10:59 --> 00:11:54

example, if someone says her the fairies right there Likkle fairies, meaning this is the best one, this is the best writer, meaning every other writer besides him can never match hands down the best, so that he can keytab this book, this is it. This is the best book, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say on the member in the halal Hadith, the Kitab Allah, that the best speech is the speech of Allah. So, you understand the two meanings of radical Kitab that book and also this book, or that is the book or that book, there are so many beautiful ways of understanding this. Now, this book book, whether it is referring to the Quran, or that book, scripture, meaning, the scriptures

00:11:54 --> 00:12:43

that Allah has revealed, there is such that love life, there is no doubt any absolutely no doubt that this is the book that Allah has revealed. Without doubt, this is the book of Allah. This is the book that gives knowledge which no other book can and it contains nothing doubtful. Rather, it contains or emolia pin factual, certain knowledge which removes doubt. And it is a guidance for what to clean for people of Taqwa because you cannot benefit from something unless and until you have conviction in it. If you have doubt about it, then you cannot benefit from it. Because how can you follow something that you're not sure about? It's not possible. So loughrea Buffy who the Lynmouth

00:12:43 --> 00:13:31

again, now, if you look at the IR you can see dots right after the word labor, three dots, and then right after the word fie again, three dots, you see those dots? Now these dots are not to, you know, beautify the text, there's a function for these dots. These dots show us that basically, there's two ways that we can recite this aisle. All right, how can we recite this if we can recite it first of all, as their early Kalki tabular * fee hood a little more tucking that we pause after loudly? And the second way of reciting it is that valley colicky tabula rasa fi pause and then who then will move the cane. So let's look at the first way of reciting it. Okay because that remember punctuation

00:13:31 --> 00:14:28

that tells you how to understand the sentence. So let's look at the first way Valley Kalki tabula Raber Fie, who the limit 13 What does this mean? This means that book meaning scripture that Allah revealed or this book meaning the Quran Lowri there is absolutely no doubt meaning undoubted undoubtedly. It is such that fi who the Lynmouth Ducane in it is guidance for the motorcade. So, that book meeting scripture, there is absolutely no doubt meaning undoubtedly is from Allah and Phoebe who the Lynmouth Ducane in it is guidance for the Mukhin. Then the second way that we recite it, we pause after fee so that you could double our labor fee that this book meaning the Quran, or

00:14:29 --> 00:14:59

that scripture, it is such that a loud Rebbe fee there is no doubt in it and be who the little more 13 Eight is guidance for metalcon. So, this is the book, there is no doubt that it is guidance for the moutain or this is the book in which is no doubt it is guidance for the motor cane. So yes, the word Kitab is referring to both it's referring to the Quran.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:46

And then it's also referring to scripture in general. And that's exactly what I was going to explain to you right now it's the word key tab. This is from the verb Qatada kettlebell literally means to draw together or to bring together and it also means to write because when you're writing you are bringing together your thoughts you are bringing together letters and words. So Kitab is that which is written, okay. Kitab that which is written. So the word Kitab applies to a book. It applies to a document a paper. Also it applies to a written mandate. And in Quran, the word Kitab is used to refer to the Quran. In other places the word Kitab refers to Scripture, any divine revelation, the

00:15:46 --> 00:16:30

books that Allah has revealed, sometimes we see that the word is means writing, and sometimes it also means Hukum, or decree. So depending on the context, we understand the meaning of the word kitab. Here both of the meanings are applicable, meaning the Quran and also scripture, so that you can Kitab la Riva. Raber means doubt. And basically, * is a kind of a doubt, that causes you to feel very disturbed that agitates the mind. And you will notice that as long as you are doubtful, you're uncomfortable. So for example, if you're not sure whether you put salt in the food or not, you're not going to be settled until you can actually taste the food and relieve yourself of that

00:16:30 --> 00:17:27

doubt. So doubt is something that creates disturbance and agitation. Right? And doubt is the opposite of fact, fact. What does it do? It brings you confidence and doubt takes your confidence away. Now, labor as I told you before, it means there is no doubt at all or undoubtedly, so we are being told over here, that we should not have any doubt in the scripture or in the Quran. Because doubt and the book of Allah do not go together. So there is no doubt that Allah revealed books for guidance of people. And there is no doubt in the Quran, meaning the Quran is very clear. It is factual in its news. It has no doubts in its information, because women are still coming Allah He

00:17:27 --> 00:18:13

killer who could be more truthful than Allah in speech. In truth. Firstly, that verse 42, we learned law yet the T hillbrow, three domain benei that you will have in config, that there is absolutely no falsehood in the Quran, right? It's free of any falsehood. And then there is no doubt about this book, meaning about its truthfulness about its origin. That truly this book has been revealed by Allah there is no doubt about that. And there is no doubt that this book is guidance for the Mukhin meaning this book is certainly a source of guidance. So if a person has come seeking guidance, they will find it in the Quran. So right at the beginning, we're being told, remove any doubt that you

00:18:13 --> 00:18:59

may have. There is no doubt about the origin of this book about the correctness of this book, in the fact that Allah has sent revelation in the fact that this book is for the purpose of guidance. So loud, Reba Feiyue, the limiter clean or loughrea, Buffy who the Lynmouth Ducane. Now whether we learned earlier it is guidance. And remember that guidance is of two types. It is Hidayah is shad, which is when Allah subhanaw taala gives knowledge to people, so they know what is right, what is wrong, which way they're supposed to take which direction they're supposed to go in. And the second type of hedaya is of Tofik that a person is able to act upon it. Now the Quran is Hooda meaning it's

00:18:59 --> 00:19:50

both it offers knowledge and it also shows us how we should act upon it. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't just recite and teach the Quran the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also taught us how to live the Quran. So the Quran is supposed to be a guide, not just information and knowledge because kind of halacha will Quran he was an embodiment of the Quran. So if we want to know how to live in the way that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with them we have to look at the Quran. If we want to know what is right what is wrong, we have to look at the Quran because the Quran is Hooda but it is Hooda for who lil Mata teen for those who have Dakhla. Now who

00:19:50 --> 00:20:00

are the clean water clean por la mata ki I mentioned this earlier. Look, the key is the person who has the club. Now when we look at the word what the key

00:20:00 --> 00:20:56

The verb is Ithaca in the commons, that he preserved himself extraordinarily meaning a person, guarded himself, shielded himself protected himself exceedingly and he did his best to save himself. But how? By putting a barrier between himself and what he was trying to avoid. So for example, it has said it the Pilbara it's cold outside, so it the Pilbara safeguard yourself from the cold? How would you do that? You would safeguard yourself from the cold *, by freaking out by screaming No, you're going to do that by putting a barrier between yourself in the cold, right? And what is that barrier going to be? Your warm clothes, your jacket, right in the middle of a rock, be aware of

00:20:56 --> 00:21:44

drowning? What does that mean? That put a shield between yourself and drowning if you know how to swim only then enter the water if you don't know how to swim, then put on a life jacket and don't come near the water. So the concept of Ithaca is that you are guarding yourself. But you're guarding yourself how? By putting a shield between yourself and what is dangerous. What is harmful for you. Now who are then with the pin? What are they guarding themselves from? What are they protecting themselves from? From Hellfire from a bad end from the displeasure of Allah? How do you guard yourself from falling into the fire? You guard yourself by staying away from sins. That's the first

00:21:44 --> 00:22:28

thing you have to do. So make sure you get this down. The Taqwa includes what first of all, avoiding sins, that when you know that there is something that Allah does not like that Allah has clearly forbidden, then you don't do it. You stay away from it. That's a rule that you make for yourself. Secondly, part of Taqwa is that you do not leave what Allah has commanded you to do. Right? Meaning you do what you're supposed to you don't leave it. So Taqwa includes both things, avoiding sins, and secondly, doing what is required. So for example, when a person prays salah, what are they doing? They're guarding themselves. When a person says lair, ilaha illa. Allah, they are shielding

00:22:28 --> 00:23:16

themselves from hellfire. When a person speaks the truth, when a person guards their tongue, they are shielding themselves guarding themselves from the fire, when a person has an opportunity to do something wrong, but they don't do it commit a sin but they don't commit it. What are they doing? They're saving themselves. So remember that when we abide by the laws that Allah subhanaw taala has given us we're not doing anyone else a favor. We're doing ourselves a favor. We're saving ourselves. So this is a Book about which there is no doubt it is a guidance for who for those who are conscious of Allah. Now the question is, isn't the Quran supposed to be a guidance for all people? Because you

00:23:16 --> 00:23:34

know, in the Quran, we learned that it is who then leanness and circle Bacala verse 185, we learned that the Quran is a guidance for all people. Here we learn it is Hudlin Mata clean. So how does that work? If the Quran is supposed to be guidance for all people, how come the moutain have been singled out over here?

00:23:35 --> 00:23:43

You see, the Quran offers both types of hedaya he they are off ban is shot and also he died off.

00:23:45 --> 00:24:32

Right? That you learn it, you follow it? The Quran offers both. Now some people they don't bother to learn it, they don't bother to follow it. They don't you know, live by it. So yes, the Quran offers them knowledge, but they do not benefit from the Quran. In surah surah 82 Allah subhanaw taala says when Nunes illuminant Qurani Mahua she found on warahmatu little more meaning that the Quran is a healing and a mercy for those who believe because the person who believes in the Quran, that is a person who will benefit from it. The person who wants to safeguard himself the person who wants to save himself, he is the one she is the one who will benefit from the Quran. The person who will

00:24:32 --> 00:24:59

follow the guidance of the Quran is the one who will benefit from its guidance. This is like you know, if there is a medication, one person comes and takes it and another person comes and leaves it. So the person who takes it, that medication becomes a source of healing for them and the person who leaves it, then that medication is not healing for them in spiritual and fall. I are 29 We learn Yeah, are you here ladina Avenue

00:25:00 --> 00:25:47

In Tatacoa, yadgir Allah confer Cana or you who have believed if you have Taqwa of Allah, Allah will give you a criterion. Allah will give you the ability to tell between right and wrong to recognize what is okay what is not. Okay? So this shows us that the people who actually try to save themselves who actually try to protect themselves, then they're the ones who truly benefit from the verses of Allah. The Quran guides them to sort out almost the pain. The Quran guides them along. Serato Musa team. So who are the motor pain? How do they shield themselves? How are they guarding themselves? How does a person become a monkey? Let's look at the traits of the motor clean. Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:47 --> 00:26:35

told us a Lavina you may know Nabil, hi, there are those who believe in the unseen when you came on Asana. Secondly, they established the salah, thirdly women noddles Akane, who knew and gone and they spend out of what We have provided for them. You see over here in this verse, the qualities of the Moroccan are of what kind, they are related to belief. They believe in the unseen. And their qualities are also related to actions. They also do something, what do they do? They perform the salah, they establish prayer, they give charity. So a mood. Ducky is not just person who has a lot of fear in his heart, or a person who just sits and cries all day, a mood. The key is a person who

00:26:35 --> 00:27:22

lives in the world who engages with people. But no matter what they're doing, they're conscious of Allah, in their heart is strong faith, and their actions show that they're conscious of Allah. Now let's look at the first quality. And Medina you may know or believe those who believe in the unseen you may know now, I mentioned this to you earlier, this is from Iman, you may know those who believe meaning those who have Iman, what is Iman, Iman is faith. Right. Now Eman is described as the sleek meaning to confirm the truthfulness of something to believe that something is true. All right. Now, where's that belief? It is, of course in the heart. But if a person truly believes in something, is

00:27:22 --> 00:28:00

that evident in their behavior in their choices? Absolutely it is. So for example, if a person believes that we are living in a pandemic, then what are they going to do, they're going to be careful about, you know, going out of the house, they're going to be careful about not touching things. And if they do end up touching something, they're going to clean their hands, right, they're not going to be socializing. But if a person does not believe that this is a pandemic, they think, Oh, it's just a conspiracy. This is just, you know, certain people trying to take over the world and control our lives. And you know, this is just a plan, then what's going to happen? They're not going

00:28:00 --> 00:28:48

to take this matter seriously. And they're going to put themselves in danger, and they're going to put other people in danger. Right. So the thing is that when you believe in something, that belief is evidence on what on your actions on your external. So Eman is not just about believing Eman includes action. Remember this. Eman includes action, which is why we see in the qualities of the moutain that there is Iman. And then right after that there is action, there's worship, they pray salah. Now when it comes to Iman, what do they believe in, they believe been high up in the unseen. Now what is high labor is basically what is hidden. Okay, labor is something that we cannot observe

00:28:48 --> 00:29:36

directly, which means that we cannot see it with our eyes, we cannot hear it with our ears, we cannot see it, we cannot measure it, but we know that it's there. So everything that is hidden is called light. It's that which is unperceivable. It's absent from the human range, you can say it's beyond our perception. And there are two types of labor. Okay? One type of labor is that which is relative meaning it's hidden from some people, but not others. So for example, angels, they are in the unseen from us, we do not see angels, but when Gibreel would bring revelation to the Prophet sallallahu Erny who said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would see angels up, right? You know,

00:29:36 --> 00:29:59

certain animals can perceive certain sounds, which we can't, they can see in the dark, which we are not able to do. Now there's also absolute leap. The second type of laborers that which is absolute which none can see or none can perceive except Allah or soldier. So for example, when is the Day of Judgment going to happen? This is something that only

00:30:00 --> 00:30:42

The Allah knows about. So you may know Nabil Hi Youtube Eman belied means that we believe in all of the unseen. We believe in everything that Allah has informed us off, that his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has informed us off, whether we can see it or we cannot, whether we can hear it or we cannot. And secondly, amen believe also includes believing in the news that Allah subhanaw taala has given whether this news is of the past or of the future, like for example, the coming of the day of judgment or of the past the creation of Adam or his sunnah. So this is something that Allah has informed us. So we believe in that, you know, and I believe when Jabril asked the Prophet sallallahu

00:30:42 --> 00:31:10

alayhi wa sallam that what is Iman tell me about Eman? He said Eman is that you believe in Allah. And we have not seen Allah. You believe in His angels. We don't see the angels. You believe in his books that Allah has revealed these books. You believe in His messengers, you believe in the last day you believe in divine decree? All of this is part of Eman. So remember Eman is about believing in the unseen.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:58

But now there is a question. How can a person believe in what they have not seen? If you think about it as a Muslim, most of our Eman all of it is about what believing in the unseen. So how can a person believe in something that they cannot see themselves? You know, are you just supposed to follow blindly or like what's going on? Because, you know, we're taught to use our reason. You know, we don't just accept any thing that is said and heard. So how is it that our iman is based upon believing in the unseen? Well, there's a number of ways The first thing is that you can believe in something that you have not seen yourself, when you are informed about it by someone who is reliable

00:31:58 --> 00:32:47

and truthful, someone who is dependable. Okay. So for example, going back to the pandemic, the example of the virus, you are not seeing it with your own eyes, you may not have witnessed its devastating effects on a person's health and life, you may not have the law protect you, your family, your acquaintances, you know, you may not have witnessed it, you may never have studied in a lab, you may never have, you know, learn about what viruses are, how they spread, how they infect the body, how they pass from person to person, you may not understand why when it comes to testing someone for the virus, why do they have to, you know, take a swab from the nose, basically, a nasal

00:32:47 --> 00:33:33

swab, like why you don't know, but you trust the health experts. You trust the doctors, you know that these are people who know what they're talking about, who have spent their lives studying these things? Who with their research, you know, they have established certain things so you trust the experts. When you have a problem? You know, with your health. You don't go to the doctor and debate with the doctor. Well, you know what, prove it to me. I don't trust you prove it to me. No, you accept the Word of the of the doctor. Yes, you can take a second opinion, a third opinion. But the point is that you as a person cannot know about everything. And if you think that you should know

00:33:33 --> 00:34:23

everything firsthand, that's a little arrogant. And if you belittle others who are experts in their fields, then that is also very arrogant. So as a human being you understand that you have certain limitations. So while you are conscious about where you're getting your information from, you know that if your information is coming from a reliable source, you will accept it. So when it comes to Eman, inlaid Eman in the unseen, who is our source, who is that reliable source, it is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose truthfulness was established even before he became a prophet. And that's well known. He was sodic must do. He was Sadek, and he was Amin. And then another reason why

00:34:23 --> 00:34:59

you would believe in something that you have not seen, or what you cannot see is because you know that it's there, you know that it's real, because it's signs exist. And through those signs, you can infer that it is real. So for example, in psychological research, when a researcher wants to study something that cannot be directly observed, like for example, a person's level of happiness, how do you measure it? Is there a thermometer? Is there a measuring tape that you can use? Is there like a physical lab test that you can do to

00:35:00 --> 00:35:51

measure their level of happiness know, what you will do is that you will recognize the outward manifestations off happiness. So for example, how often does a person smile? So these manifestations, what are they they're like clues, they provide clues to us about the existence of the hidden variable, the thing that we want to observe, we want to measure but we cannot directly measure. So Allah subhanaw taala, has created many signs in the universe, that prove to us that the labor exists. Allah subhanaw taala has put within us, you know, certain systems or certain thoughts or certain ideas that, you know, constantly make us wonder and think about where we have come from

00:35:51 --> 00:36:39

and where are we going? You know, for example, when it comes to the real judgment, how do we know it's real? Well, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam has informed us about it, it's mentioned in the Quran. But there is another manifestation of it that we see every year, multiple times. And that is that when the ground when the Earth has become dead over the course of the winter, it's become lifeless, right? You look at the tree, it looks dead. There's nothing green on it. It's outside in minus 20 minus 30. And you're like it's finished. But then once the weather changes, springtime comes along, you see it coming to life. So what is this an evidence of that if Allah subhanaw taala

00:36:39 --> 00:37:28

can cause these trees to come back to life year after year, he can also cause human beings to be resurrected. So we believe in the unseen, not because we can rationalize it, not because we can perceive it. We believe in the unseen because Allah has informed us of it. His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has informed us of it. And a MacDuffie first and foremost believes in the unseen and this belief. What does it do? It saves the motor. It shields the motor. How? Because if you only believe in what you can see yourself, you're putting yourself in danger. So for example, if you said I don't believe in Coronavirus, prove it to me, I want to see the virus. I want to see those virus

00:37:28 --> 00:38:03

bugs, right? If they're on my hands, then I'll wash my hands. If they're not, I'm not going to wash my hands. While you're making a fool of yourself. You have to be humble over here and trust the experts. And Alif Lam mean reminds us that we don't know everything. We cannot know everything. Our observation is limited. Our reach is limited and this is why we trust a greater source. We trust a reliable source because if we don't do that we're putting ourselves in danger. So and levena You may know Nabil Hi they believe in the unseen
