Salam aleikum. Tonight's name is Al Whitehead. Allah subhanaw. Taala is elewana head. Ottawa had means the one,

00:00:12 --> 00:00:20

Allah, there's only one of him. There's not two, there's not three. There's not more than that.

00:00:21 --> 00:00:48

This is really important because a lot of people throughout history have kind of gotten confused about this. When the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was made a prophet was made a messenger in Arabia, about 1400 years ago, he was trying to convince people that were used to thinking that there were more than one God, more than one divine power.

00:00:49 --> 00:01:26

Allah tells us in the Quran, why it doesn't make any sense at all, that there would be more than one god or more than one, Allah. One of the things he tells us is that if there were more than one God, then they would naturally eventually, someday disagree about something. Can you imagine for a second, if there was one god that was responsible for creating the earth, and another god that was responsible for creating the oceans and the water,

00:01:28 --> 00:02:04

they might disagree as to how much land there should be on Earth, or how much water, the god of water would probably want there to be more water than land. And the God of land would probably want there to be more land than water. And so there would be some sort of conflict, there would be some sort of arguments. And if there would be an argument like that, then we would see some sort of sign. When we look around the world, we would see some sort of chaos, we would see some sort of disruption.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:41

But is that what we see, when we look at the world, we see the opposite, we see that everything works together. Everything works together in harmony, things aren't really competing with each other, everything is held in a perfect balance. So Allah uses this argument in the Quran to show that everything that we see, all follow follows one set of rules. And one set of rules for everything shows us that there's one intelligent designer, Allah behind it all.

00:02:43 --> 00:03:06

This was something that the main point that the Prophet Muhammad SAW someone was trying to get across to his people, and to all of mankind, they were used to worshipping many, many gods. And the reason why they are one of the reasons why they liked to worship many gods, was because if they felt like they made one angry,

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

they could always run to another.

00:03:10 --> 00:04:00

That's how they kind of got out of the situation. Maybe sometimes, with your parents, you do something kind of similar to this. Maybe you want to ask for something special. And you know that your father's probably going to say no. And you know that your mother is probably going to say yes, wouldn't you maybe go and ask your mother, or vice versa, whatever it is in your house. This is kind of how the people of Arabia were before Islam came. When they wanted something, they would go to the God that they thought could give it to them, a God that they thought that would say yes to whatever it was that they desire. And if one of the gods they thought was saying no to them, they would just

00:04:00 --> 00:04:02

go find a different god.

00:04:03 --> 00:04:38

You can see how much chaos this brings and how wrong it is. When we organize our worship, and put ourselves under just one god Allah, then we're accountable to just him. We only have him to answer to if we disobey Him if we make a mistake. We have to say that we're sorry. We have to repent. We have to admit that we made a mistake. There was no running away from it. So that's all for tonight. And Salaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.
