Isla, if you can remember this word because today is not a lecture, but moreover a class, there is no other Ella Alif Lam ha Illa which is God which is, which is creator sustainer and many of us don't realize one key factor ILA also holds the authority of the most worthy of love. So how could we? How could we truly know what love is? Until we have loved the lesson? How can we truly know what it is to have an affectionate relationship with our Creator? Then? to not understand that we need to understand this first key phrase, La Ilaha Illa ma? Muhammad Rasulullah La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in me, to mean of What do you mean? So we all bear witness, we all testify we sanctify with our
lips, that there is no other creator sustainer giver of life other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what do we do by sitting here by venerating Allah subhanho wa Taala. by sitting in the masjid itself, we say the statement, one a shadow, a nun Mohammedan, our Buddha who wore a suit. And we can say and understand that it's one thing to say there's no god but God and Muhammad is His final messenger. It's another thing to sit in a place that is known as the sanctified house for the worship of Allah and to sit here and to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala puts you in a completely different realm. But what could take you a step further, when you say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan
rasul Allah and say a lot. I want to know, I want to know about the people who came in the past. I want to know about the prophets and I want to know about the people that you have guided the people who you have chosen. So we read in the ayah, and this was i a number
111 of surah Yusuf Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and I'm hoping that as you get a little bit more comfortable in the class, in this experience, you're going to realize that this is a place for you to take notes to remember to absorb because Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us love pardon can feel
the stories of the prophets are not just something to put you like, Oh, it's a nice story. Let me watch Steven Spielberg's Prince of Egypt Let me hear a story you know something cozy that I can listen to know Allah subhanho wa Taala says they're able to leave lil Al Bab. Do you remember from the Ramadan series we talked about who the Al Bab were? These are people who
let me give you a definition for Oulu Al Bab Allah subhanho wa Taala says there is the person that you can make you can tell him see if not Can you bring this for me and they'll understand right but who is someone who is a step above understanding when you can do something like this? You just kind of wait and they can get the Shara Wait, I think he's asking for something without saying it. The people and please help me translate this Remember to as much as interaction as you can give me it will help in English. How would I say someone who just who gets the Shara Shara is for me without saying anything. someone gets the hint. I think that would work. Right? You kind of get it when
you're with a friend and he does this a couple of times like Oh, so everything's good. Yeah, that's great. What's the Shara? When I just simply it's like I have to get going right? Oulu Al Bab are those people who get Allah subhana wa tada as a shadow without Allah saying, pray. They'll get they'll read the story of Musa moosari salam meets Allah. What's the first thing Allah subhanho wa Taala says to him, Themis, la llanthony the Cree establish the prayer for what? For my remembrance of Allah. We hear this story musanze blown away. He's talking to a glowing blue bush. And in this he looks towards the bush and he's told to pray. But what do human beings get the shadow Allah wants to
be remembered? The intelligent human being doesn't need a shave to come and give him the Papa Illa praying. The intelligent human being says there's a reason why I like told me this story. Lapa the canopy puzzles the human robot to legal Al Bab manga handy
day. So this is our course curriculum. We are now testifying and bear witnessing there is no other creator sustainer other than a law but we need
To realize Allah we want to be amongst those who are able to understand how to live our life. And this is the key point here. beignet. Allah said that this book is going to confirm solidify the books that gave in the past. So can you please tell me what were at least two books that came in the past before us anybody got caught up in Jean tower or someone have wat da Buddha Zaboo call us we've got three, we've got the Psalms, we've got the Bible, and we have the Injeel. So today, what we're going to embark on V is an Ilaha. Allah not and I'm not going to rush today, I'm going to try to make this as clear as possible. We intend with Allah subhanaw taala as mercy to journey through the
Quran, with the best of the stories about the MBR. Now this is going to be that step number one, the name of our course is going to be the prophetic dynasty. You have heard the story of Adam and a Sunnah. You've heard the story of the Buddha, a Sam and Noah had an ark, David had Goliath, you've heard this, our objective in our course, is to not look at them as separate stories. But we want to look at it through the lens of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the director of the creation of the earth. And we're going to look at it as after Adam came the next Prophet, and we're going to look at it as one snapshot Why? So let's start here to start building our course. First off, we're realizing that
books came in the past. So we need to as Muslims in 2012, we need to know did you read the New York Times article yesterday, New York Times article was that Saudi Salam had a wife, Jesus had a wife, we have the scrolls that say he has a wife, these Da Vinci Code goes crazy on this thing. So if you're not prepared and ready to understand what are the stories in the Bible and in the Torah, how do we rectify them and understand them and what is going to be the final means for us to understand? So with that, I welcome everyone I pray Allah subhana wa tada blesses, you overwhelms you with His mercy. So at the end of this class, it's not like it was a good story. You can leave here with the
prophetic dynasty, every prophet and I could summarize all 12 weeks of my lecture into one ayah but don't go long. Hello Oakley rune in Surah ambia in Surah, Casa 17th 18th, up to the 22nd Jews, every prophet who came when they came to the people of God in the mood when new holiday Salam came, every prophet said what for the law, be aware and conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala were up to you. So I'm going to take a quick pause here and Shall I am going to request for this one. Why don't you whip out your
phone or something to write with try because the Quran series during Ramadan it was heavy. This one I'm telling you as an instructor, I did my best to find narrations and stories that you didn't hear. So you know, other malasana was created, right? But I pray that I can provide you things that are brand new, not because we found them. But there are books of the past which we have not touched. Did we know that other Malays Salaam had a son, let's just go down that route? What were his sons names?
hobbylink, labial, there was another son after Fabio killed havebeen What is the name of this son? I had no idea. So don't worry. I had no idea that Obi Wan Kenobi will killed his brother buried him. We'll get to the story, probably in two weeks. But did you know that there was another son?
sheath Adi Salatu was Salam. And this is amazing. Our elders know this, but those who are supposed to know the text, I had no idea founded in Bukhari. Rasool Allah made reference to him and not only did he make reference to him, but he had his own Shetty are the prophets of love. It was Selim said over 100 scrolls were revealed to mankind 50 of those scrolls want to see.
That's 50 scrolls is a very big deal. But then when we get to the story of faith, you'll be like, wow, I had no idea. The first club and please quote me on this, the first Saturday night bumping bass thumping club was during the time with Keith Alexa. And what what day, did they hit the club? Saturday night? Nope, I can't make this stuff up. So when we start realizing, like I said, Now we're gonna start looking at it in a snapshot, not 10,000 years of prophethood. No, they've all been dealing with the same thing. So be even Allahu Allah, I pray that you're able to follow with us. The concept of covering 10,000 years of history is going to we're not going to be using PowerPoint.
We're going to try to use an open canvas. So the first thing that I want us to realize is let's break down our time right now. And it's going to always feel like oh man, we're almost done. So let's try it.
Right off by understanding this is not necessarily a study of the lives of the prophets, but it's a snapshot of all of their lives together. So we chose the name, prophetic dynasty. With this, we take a look at our last name. I am honored, privileged and blessed to be the one presenting this to you. I was the young person who was blown away by the stories that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us and I'm overwhelmed and blessed to share this with you. If you benefit from this, please thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let's get started with the first concept. There are five questions that we want to answer before we start. So the first question that we're going to tackle together be eaten
The first thing that we're going to tackle together is why prophetic dynasty, why look at the prophets together, I'm going to give you a simple narration and this will help you understand why we need to see in one shot. So first off our schedule for today we'll answer five questions why study the prophets? Why understand their legacy? Why understand their dynasty? Those five questions will come up. Number two, I would like to have some rules. During our class. For example, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what had the flu am Benny is la isla wala Hara, there is no problem in telling the stories from Bible and delta. So what does that mean? And how are we going
to use it? We're going to talk about that in shortland. The second phase, the third phase, I'd like to talk about four main points of the creation of man. It's very important in the time and age we have many young people of hamdulillah many young people who are with us who you know about philosophy, you know, professors are going to attack the creation of man, we're going to try to tackle that. And if Allah subhanaw taala wills will just give a small glimpse of the beginning of other my son, is that fair? So that's our schedule. Let's jump into the concept of why prophetic dynasty, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated and told us about the story of
other Malays Salaam Salaam. And this is just to give you an idea and why the CNN snapshot of the Malays Salaam had all of bunny Adam sitting in front of him. So every human being that was created, Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed other Malaysians to look at him. There's a point at the end of the story. He saw a man in the distance, he saw brightness between his eyes or in his eyes, you could say he saw a twinkle in his eye, or in the narration that I read that there was light between his eyes. So the face was glowing. And when a Salam said to Allah, Who is that one? He said, these are your children. He goes, No, but who's that one? So Allah subhanho wa Taala said, this is a slave.
This is a one of your sons, who will come at the end of time. I'm going to ask you, when is he going to come?
At the end of time? You know who that person was? That Buddha Raisa.
So when you ask yourself prophetic dynasty, oh, yeah, a lab report referred to Tao la Salaam as what?
End of Time. So where are we now?
prophetic dynasty. Next step. I want you to realize that to us, as narrated by the prophet sallahu wa sallam, we'll get into this more in the creation of men. Allah subhanho wa Taala reminded us to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, the length the the time of a human beings life, the higher or the life that mean you experience is How Long Does anyone know this? How long is the life of the human being to Allah? between the time of by the farmer, to farmer to swallow, swala Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la isla de la, from the end of the pharma, to a long war and well, that's how long your life is to Allah.
How many moments are there between the more than saying, Allahu Akbar Allahu prolite, the law of make your slides straight, please turn off your cell phones something remember your stand in front of Allah bang, Allahu Akbar. That's the length of your life. So now when you pull the camera back a little bit further, you start saying the entire universe is let is, I'm not going to give a narration we said a day or a little bit more than a day to Allah. So why look at the prophets in a snapshot because Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us that one prophet has an entire legacy. But all of the prophets have a dynasty and how we live, how we act, the people of Arden, the mood the
people of loot, are they Salam looked at loot and said, we really don't care what you have to say we want to meet those young guys over there. It was direct to the face of a prophet. The same way we see today. That when we see people going out and disrespecting the character, a result of loss of love to sell them, we start seeing this and we start forgetting the fact that human beings are challenging Allah prophetic downs.
It helps us realize there is a greater scope our life is this long the universe maybe, maybe, maybe an hour to Allah subhanaw taala. So when we look at it this way, it helps us to grow. So we're now going to pull out and try to answer these five questions in sha Allah. Let's try together inshallah.
So the first and main thing be even Allah is
to get this cool thing to work.
I'm not going to even try.
So we're gonna try to connect this for you. But
as this is getting set up, I do want you to take a few notes. It's iron number three of surah Yusuf and what was the other ayah that we read at the beginning sisters? Beginning
Mashallah. Mashallah. Exactly I have 111 fantastic. I a 111 is number three, both of them from Surah
Yusuf and it's amazing that Allah subhanho wa Taala says la casa Cana that definitely certainly feed costlessly him in the stories are signs are totally alien. Alba for people who think right, the key factor is you read through the use of just by itself and you start reading surah Yusuf and you're like why is Allah telling me so many rules? Why is he telling me so many details I got thrown in a well got someone said he got eaten by a wolf. Why all of these details because Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us the importance of knowing these people. So the prophetic dynasty Ethan Allah, we are going to start
by answering one question, let's start with our first five questions. Why no these men specifically number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah 35 iron number 24 filecloud with the one right before yacine surah Falcon, I N number 24. He says to every man what a min Mateen to every single Omar Allah subhanho wa Taala center messenger. So let's start for major reasons. And I will give you a quick summary of all of the the footnotes where we're getting our information from at the end. Is that okay with those taking notes, we'll do that towards the end. I'd like you to get more into the information number one, because Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us we must know
those who are guided so Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran, know the prophets and know that their example is their best number one, we do it for a better number two, because Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is an article of your faith. It's an article of your belief, to know these men and to know the stretch trials and tribulations that they went through. But here's another key factor. How can I say I love someone? How can I say I love this superstar? That superstar over there? He plays basketball. He's a superstar and I say I love him. So with some what team does he play for? Oh, that's my favorite actress. Okay, what movie? Is she in? What does
she I don't know. I don't know anything about the person? How can we say we love someone without knowing the details about them? Number one, why know these men because Allah subhanho wa Taala gave it to us as an act of worship, knowing the prophets and messengers is an act of worship. Number two, because if we say we love someone, if we can really think about this as deeply as you can, I wanted to do research on this. So I went to the scholars of the past who gave speeches on lives of the prophets, so I wanted to know them. I wanted to not understand what happened in the story. You help me out on this. There's me telling you the story. But then there's you watching the movie over and
over again. What does that do when you watch your favorite sitcom or cereal? Right? And you after you watch a few episodes, what happens? Can someone help me to understand what happens after a few after watching a show or a movie or reading a book a few times what happens beyond the story? What happens?
You know what inside out you get, you get okay? You get addicted. Very true. You get addicted, and I'm going to say you get closer to the character. I'll give you an example. You know these characters on the local NBC sitcoms, people say that they here in Los Angeles. They say people meet us on the street and call us by the name that we have in the TV show. So it's like one my family
He's teasing me, they'll call me brother with Sam. At home, my sister will call me brother Sam, why it's a character. So in the same way, when you get to know the characters of the Quran, who happened to be the MBR, you don't get to know their story, you get to know something even greater, which is you get to know
their attitude, you get to know their concept. So we started with the first question, and that was, Why know these men so we can learn to love them and that we don't know their story. We know the story behind the story. I'm going to give you a small example. I could tell you loot Ali, salaam son was on a mountain. Okay. And he said, Dad, don't worry about it. I'll go climb on a mountain. If you read that story a few times at some point, you wouldn't think about the kid on the mountain. What would you think about? You would think about luta Lee Solomon's face when he heard his son's answer?
No, new Alessandra Corcoran. So I want you to think about this again. So new la Salam speaks to his son and says there's a flood coming. His son says I'm going to go run up onto a mountain. And all of us young people, we say, Yeah, I can see it from the sun's angle. But Baba can see because dad has seen his dumb son. Give him an answer like that before that every father can say, and I've seen this look on my dad's face where my dad will look at me. And he'd be like, Oh, okay. He knows what you're saying makes no sense. He knows that you don't understand what he's saying. But he realizes he's a dumb man. He's a dumb boy who thinks he knows he's a man. And all of a sudden the camera changes.
You're not worried about the words of new Harley salame son, you start experiencing the feeling of looking your son in the eye and nodding and saying,
you don't know what kind of flood is coming. The experience, the perfume narrative of me talking to my son, and you're not thinking about us, but seeing the camera from the outside and saying, you know what, there's something behind this. And I will say this to the young people in the room, we can experience only dads can. Because we look to our moms and give an excuse that we know is unnecessary. But we we feel it in here. It makes sense. But through their eyes, they're like, Oh, that's my son. So what we're Our objective is to learn to love to have compassion, and to get the personality. Next, why know these men? We're going to move to the next question. In the next phase.
every prophet was a man. Now I want you to look at this through a lens. Why do I tell you that he was a man? Because every prophet had certain characteristics. They had likes, they had dislikes. Let's take the example of and we talked about him. She thought he said I'm the prophet who was the Prophet after who are the Malays. Salam had two sons, one killed the other, and he moved off made his own tribe and now we have she thought he had characteristics, the people in his community. The men were they said that the women were very good looking, they were pleasant to the eye and the men, not so pretty. Not so good looking. Okay, this is a characteristic. So all of a sudden you start
realizing he's living in an arena. Let's take a simpler example, Mohammed Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a human being a prophet, the seal of the nectar of all of the prophets. He lives during a time in a place where women would tie white flags outside of their house. This meant open for business people would make the life without clothes on. This would also This was also very awkward, so much. So now you know this fact. But Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're starting to see beyond the fact that he had a beard and he dressed like this. No one time he actually came to the Kaaba while people were making a lot. And now you're starting to see his
manhood, the characteristics of being him being a human, he walked into the room like this, put his head down and reminded the people that there was one creator, he was a human being. You see what I'm saying here as a prophet, he could have walked, I'm a prophet, go put on some clothes, He humbled Himself. This is, every prophet needs to be known intimately, never saw himself greater than the cause. And every prophet had, and we're gonna coin this term, every prophet had an attitude. And here in America and North America, when I say the word attitude, it's very negative. No, every prophet artists, so that was Salam embodied one component, or one characteristic. So the next thing
that I would like you to write down and I want you to have a framework every week you'll come in, you're going to look to where we are in the dynasty where we fall. Number two, you're going to ask yourself, what is it that this prophet specifically had to deal with every prophet had problems during their time, but we know during the time of doubt,
Without a cinema, certain specific situations came up. Let's give you a small example. Newell had a son, Noah, How many years did he give our sisters? How many years? Did he give dollar
950 years or as the narration says it very dramatically 1000 years minus 50. It's very overwhelming. And you would think by that time, he didn't have Hanafi Shafi WC Salah, he didn't even have enough tea that took like a huge, long it was part of a law. Well, I'll tell you, it wasn't very there was not even a prayer there. And for 950 years is the same message. And some narrations tell us 30 people followed him?
I will there are people who get hurt when 30 people don't come to listen to their lecture. Can you imagine giving Dawa for 950 years and the highest narration is 50 people? 50 people? So what attitude would you say new ra Salam represented? patients smack smack on the head. Patience. He embodied patience. But how can you understand that? And how can you fulfill that that will be what we'll do is what attitude can we take away? So if you wrote that word down, if you need to write another explanation, maybe attitude means characteristic is its it doesn't have life. I want you to know when you see me when you see shifts in Oman, you know that each one of them has a specific
personality, there's something in their attitude that's specific, I want you to leave the course knowing what the attitude of each profit was. And if you get this properly, you will see other money salons characteristic to shift to new to that would add up to the 26 profit, and each one of them will have a characteristic. And what do you think is going to happen? After he saw a salon?
We're going to see the embodiment of every single characteristic was in Nikola Tesla.
It blows your mind when you get because I was reading seer. I was like, why don't we do lives of the Prophet? And I was like, No, no, you can understand Abu lahab standing outside the house of Mohammed rasulillah screaming at this is your uncle. Okay, you can even say hey, man get away from my house. He's still respected, parading around the house of Muhammad Rasulullah, his son is dead. His son is dead, his generations are gone. Now all of a sudden, that strength inside of him from 900 years of Tao of new holiday Sam, it inspires inside. It's completely different. And he says that they are the brethren. He says that his characteristics, his strength came from the profits of the past. Why
can't we derive that strength from them and know that Mohammed Rasulullah was the final complete? His attitude wasn't one characteristic. His attitude was multi leveled. And if you said irizarry salam was the embodiment of love. Then you get to Muhammad Rasool Allah and you say no, but he's there to, you get to Musashi Salaam, you say his embodiment, his characteristic was strength and courage. But then you see Muhammad Rasulullah, before the Battle of the book, when the people are not ready to come out. And he says, If you don't come, it's okay. I'm going to go, Allah will be with me, I'll go by myself. You all of a sudden start getting these characteristics. Every man has
an attitude. And now what I would like to do was what were the attitudes of that? Why study the prophets because you want to be in love with them. every prophet was a man. And we don't say that for shadow, a discussion. We say that so you can relate. What has happened in our time in day to day is we say, Oh, he was a prophet. I actually heard someone tell me he goes, Oh, he was a companion. I don't have to follow that. Why? He was a companion. How is that an excuse? We start to distance people who are religious, or their religious, she wears a job. I'm not at that level. We cannot remove them outside of our scope. Because when we read after the prophets and their attitudes, we
see the embodiment and Mohammed rasulillah. And from the droplets of the blessing of Mohammed or Sula from the rays of light from Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we get his companions. And those companions, if you could read the narrations. If you could read the fact that alioto the Allahu taala and was in a battle and they ripped off the door. They ripped off the door of a castle, not a front door, you know, the moat. They ripped off the door so they could lay siege. Seven of the companions couldn't move this door. Oliver the loved one comes by slips his arms into the facets of the door, lifts up the entire door on one arm, defends the Muslims puts the doors down
slays the people and the peoples and seven of us could move that. And he said I had the same yoky and I had the same connection. As when we were fighting with Mohammed Rasulullah. We knew we were going to win. So who said you can't pick up a doula who said you can't Mark my words quote them.
Who said when the Kazakh was sailing across the sea? He said, I am a prophet. And they were pursuing him. He left via ship. Look up the narration, we won't touch it today. What did the band of companions on horseback? What did they do? Yes, they walked across a body of water, walked across a body of water. Why? Because the victory is from a fire burns when Allah says waters, water becomes buoyant and makes the things above it buoyant when a law says. So the Prophet the dynasty of prophethood, gives Muslims as strengthen an energy that no one else has. So I'm going to leave with one main point before we move to our next point, a gift that Allah has given you and not other
people, is once you cut off a lot, Bible, Torah, the Zubur, or the Psalms, and Koran, no scientific person will ever know anything about the prophets. This is a key factor I need you to understand, no matter how wonderful your professor is at UCLA, or UC Irvine, and he proves to you that there is no God. And he goes through all of these routes, not in smile, and then tell him. So then, if I take your route, I'll have be devoid of 10,000 years of the stories of the prophets, because without the historical accounts of these great ambia, human beings would be left lost. And this is dropped. Number one, in your bucket, that science is not the end all a loss of handwerker Allah and His last
steps ahead. So what is the attitude of the prophets? We're going to get to that step by step? And now here's the amazing part. Why should knowing these human beings change your attitude? Why should this process of knowing them change your attitude? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala told us, the best of mankind are the ambia the best of human beings. So the pinnacle of human creation, ever seen those YouTube clips? People are amazing, like people jumping off of a cliff and some Yes, don't Don't raise your hand for you to play. But that makes sense, right? You've seen them. They're like, dude, the guy jumps off 100 storey 100 foot thing and lands in a thimble or something crazy like
that, right? It's amazing. Allah subhana wa tada is showing you if you want pinnacle of man, this is where human beings can reach. This is the point where people will double cross you and you can turn a blind eye, the wife of a prophet could not be guided. So you start to accept guidances in the hands of Allah, knowing these men should change your attitude. And the last question that I'm praying that you are able to tackle in sha Allah is
what is your attitude right now? And what will it be isn't in LA by the end of this session? That's the main thing that I want you to not this session, but of our weekly sessions, right now. Tell yourself Yeah, I know that Adam was created. I know Noah built an ark, loot la Salaam, there's earthquakes. They were a little queer, you know, you get a general idea. But then what are you going to do with this information? That's the next step. So let's take this collage of ideas. And I am actually take a 10 second pause. Does this all make sense? The reason that I was very daunted, and I'll tell you this, now, before we move to the creation of man, I was like, trip, there were some
great Lama, who I cannot mention here today, who did great works on the stories of the prophets, but their works are lost.
budaya when we hire even casier wrote the it's called the beginning and the end. Why not just read that? Because every time needs a presentation of the stories of the Prophet every time every place needs a rendition of those stories. So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless us, give us the opportunity, but I want you to look at this lens as tangible as possible. When I tell you Ibrahim Ali Salam was thrown in a fire and that fire had to be cooked for three days. They cooked the fire for three days, and it eventually became so hot that they couldn't throw Ibraheem alehissalaam into the fire. So when I say this, I want you to be like, I want you to think what would it take to
prepare a fire like this? Anyone know how they got him into the fire?
catapult Yeah, slingshot, can you think Six Flags if you don't have a Six Flags? universal where you have to shoot someone into a rubber band? It starts giving a perspective. This is something thought out what nation killed the sheet camera? Anyone remember?
Pardon? People? Have you got the main prophets name right. What were the people of Saudi? What were their name?
Simone. Okay, can you imagine going to a camel that's larger than any other country
Getting it they hamstring the camel. So they hung the camel and got it like a fish and then turned around and said they didn't turn over and said, Oh Nabhi Oh, by the way, we killed your, this cow too bad for you know, they literally with the blood on their hands turn over their shoulder like Yo, this was the holy this was the Holy Camel, this was the one that was important to you. Meaning the the arrogance has to come through I want you to be able to see it. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy tried to look it through through a lens that reminds you that this was a real event, we start with the most important of all three things. Let's try to look at this together, creation of
man, we're gonna go from creation of man to the story of the money set up after other money Sonam is chief Adi Salatu, Salam Idris knew and who we're not necessarily going to go in the chronological chronological order you're used to, you might see one or two prophets move. I'll give you a small example. The last prophet before Mohammed rasulillah was Isa Hassan, but he sadly Salaam didn't die, but he was resurrected, who was still on earth
your exam was still on Earth. So you could say, okay, ERISA was taken up, but yahia was still there. So you might see the names out of order. The point is, once we finish this be in Allahu taala, we are going to look at all of them in a snapshot together. So let's get started with a few major points of the creation of man. And all the narrations that we're sharing here, have gone through a basic criteria. Remember, when you do a historical presentation, it's very different than doing a
a fifth re presentation in fifth, you're going to look at well this three Why is the strongest this narration was was taken by these and so now we extrapolate but as the aroma of the past have given us the allowance we can explain. We're going to use three major sources here. So number one is going to be the historical accounts of how the aroma of the past have presented the stories of the NBA one book one of the books we're going to be using is called budaya. When we hire another major thing and let's start putting down some ground rules, we are going to be taking from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is narrated to have said and we said this before we had the two Ambani Salam ala
wala Hara there is no heritage. What does this mean? Go ahead and write write it down is la le x or Israelite are these stories from the people of Israel. Point number one before we get into creation of man is la Elliot are the stories that were converted over? When I became Muslim during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I was previously Jewish, or I was previously Christian. I became Muslim and I tell the prophets a long way to send them according to the books that I we were taught as children. We learn this that Maryam Salah Manali Hall, her upper cloak was blue. Now let's ask ourselves, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said we could
narrate them while our heritage but we find and there are at least five opinions on this. Let's move through them quickly. You the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said do not take them and do not reject them. Do not take the stories from the Bible and take them absolutely and say we're going to establish shadia off of them and don't reject them and say, Oh, we don't believe in them at all. So the third source that we're going to be using, we're going to be using stories from the Bible from the Injeel. We're also going to be using some chronological order. Because you take two paths when we get to a Sally storm story. There's literally this the screen splits, we believe he ascended What
does everyone else believe
he was hanging on to a cross and Mel Gibson went crazy with it. It was like 40 minutes of blood and gore their brain then follow that path. So you have to realize that we want to look from their lens. When Christian say Jesus died on the cross for them, something happened, a story was narrated to them, of a man bleeding on a cross, you have to give some prudence some some respect to the fact that my grandfather's grandfather's grandfather told me that this happened, that someone died on a cross the same way and we're going to touch it, you're not going to feel comfortable about this. The same way we take the rewires from the car. You can debate till you're blue in the face. But I am a
young cheery child who's gonna say, but what about Hassan and Hussein? What about the blood? These are things that if you don't look at from a historical point of view, if you don't respect a historical point of view, you will get lost. And we'll just say Oh, his narration so he mind his diary forgot and we started finding it doesn't make sense. So the first part in sha Allah is this books of the past. Second is going to be the slot that we find from various scriptures and a
Of course, the number one, which I think you're going to enjoy the most is the details from follow on. Now, why do I put on last? Because that's where I want to set a premise for today. What we hear from the Koran is going to be final. We're not going we're going to have your clean in what we believe. And we're gonna take it that well, another book said this, I don't worry about it. Remember I told you at the beginning of today, The New York Times article from yesterday, anyone read it? Yeah, right, Jesus, Jesus had a wife and all sorts of Okay, that's great. Could he have a wife later on at the end of time, after defeating the Jarl he will live as a normal man, okay. But by getting
into these things, we're not going to touch it. We're not going to touch unless hold on gives us a final verdict. We're not going to touch it at all. So let's delve in sha Allah into the third which is
books of history, Islamic history, the accounts of the Jews and the Christians and the stories of the past. And last but not least, the stories in the Koran I don't want you to look at them one at a time. Let's go ahead and transition this. When I say stories from the Quran, I'm going to mention the creation of men. How many times did this story occur in the Quran? Six times important for you to realize this. We are going to because this is the advantage of the class we're going to look at all of them we'll go We'll introduce the topic and then we'll look at all of them together. Allah subhanaw taala says what could neither Muskaan Allah subhanaw taala says was put not in Malacca did
you do the Adama pasado Illa Emily's then Allah says, Can Amina Genie for casa con Amira, B, there are four different variations to the I have a lot drops in a little detail about what beliefs did about what other monies surrounded. So let's start is everyone comfortable with us to move forward? Now, let's start with the creation of men is very important from an academic standpoint, and we're going to start from the zero, there is no God, let's go
from the scientific point that time and everything created. This was actually on the Discovery Channel recently, they stated what created not what came out what created time, what was before time, they said nothing. So the actual statement on the Discovery Channel was nothing created nothing. You said God created, I said nothing. So let's start there. All of us are going to save from the creation of men. And I'm only going to spend three minutes on this young people try to absorb elders, you can just listen to it as words.
If we say that there is no creator, no sustainer, you put your books on the side and I'll put all of my books on the side. All human beings, scientific, non scientific can agree on three things. The universe from an atomic nuclear structure out to this to the spinning of the solar systems. Everything has two characteristics, everything in the universe that the universe itself,
the universe in 1994, after the light retracted from some telescope, they realized the universe was expanding, very difficult concept. So for something to expand, what did it have to be, it had to be limited and dependent. So for something to grow, something had to start at a certain place who started that certain place. Everything when I go from what's inside the molecules to electrons to protons, everything is limited and dependent. Nothing survives on its own. So in order by rationale and Muslims don't need rationale, we have a law that we don't need to be spoon fed. But let's let's play their game. In order for something to be limited and dependent. What does there have to be an
unlimited independent source that started the creation of all these things? What do we happen to call him? Allah subhanho wa Taala Thank you very much, there is a God. I mean, really, this huge discussion there there is no creator, limited and independent. Allah is indeed unlimited and independent. Let's go number one, point number two, that independent unlimited source that started the creation of everything has two possibilities. Either he talks to every single creation plants, animals, rocks and human beings. Or Allah subhanaw taala would send a certain group of people to talk to us by a poll of the people in this Masjid. How many people in this room does Allah subhanho
wa Taala talk to directly?
before you answer make sure you took all your medications for today?
Nobody, right? Allah doesn't talk to anyone directly. So this means possibility. Number two, the unlimited independent Allah sent messengers. Those messengers could only prove themselves by breaking physical law by sitting in fire for three days by touching the dead and bring them back to life. Give me some other examples. What are other examples of profits that broke physical law?
Touching the staff against the water give me a physical law rational law that is broken in walking on water. National Geographic just did a whole thing on how it was scientifically possible for Moses to split to see who cares he did. So we're not overwhelmed by these things. Another one splitting the moon I was waiting for someone to tap down splitting the moon look up in a Japanese history. In ancient Japanese history there's actually a year called the year the moon split to your audience, do your own investigation on that you'll enjoy it it's a it's a fun read. You don't need it to prove that Mohammed Ursula did some lohani of some. So the the Creator who is how you pay you independent
unlimited sent us messengers, these messengers broke physical law so they proved that they were from Allah subhanaw taala final point, the messengers came with a book that book in order to be from a law had to be perfect, unmatchable not
have no doubt in it and not be able to be reproduced again. And Kareem I think we're pretty good with our confidence that we are Muslims and we don't need some outside philosophy to teach us we have Quran I think that's good, right? I don't know that makes me super excited. I love doing that little bit. Because it's like you can walk into a into a, someone who's very philosophical. And they'll say, well, we don't need to believe in all these things and say, Look, man, you're you're using your brain as a bubble go outside. Now with that logical statement that there is a creator, let's write down three facts and these beautiful facts all requires that have some validity in them.
Number one, a lot. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did require that we're looking at today was narrated in the books of Buhari, were the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is narrated to have been visited by some Yemeni brothers, some people from Yemen. And they asked Dr. rasulillah, what was the first action that happened? The first thing that happened a loss of handwerker, Allah created the pen, and he told the pen to write, the pen then began to write everything that was going to occur in a scroll, the scroll was closed, all of the words and the information that was going to incur on this world was written, my beloved brothers and sisters, I
asked you one question 53 that's the third time so help me out on this one three's a charm. The fourth time it should be a Justin Bieber song
really adapted that point? The first amongst the things that was reached in 50,000 years before the creation of man.
Can anyone tell me what what was written in those scrolls is one word. It is raised the sustenance of every human being and I only say this to those of us who are 40. And below 40 and above are mature. There are others, all of us who are striving for finance for money for 401 Ks. It's a very hard thing for me to say on my own, every single cent that we are going to receive actually let me correct myself not cents, you could attain billions of dollars, but never actually get to spend it. That risk is not just money. Risk is the air, food, water life sustenance that you receive. What you use in your lifetime is your risk. I have met people who come to me or brother with some stuff. We
do cash business. They had a room in their house because they didn't want to pay tax that a room in their house that literally was stuffed with cash. It was like a 711 business. And they were they were sleeping on mattresses, no exaggeration, full of money. They were depressed. Their marriage was on the rocks and their kids were all over the place. I kept thinking to myself,
you can leave it in my house. I'll take care of your money. But the reality was the money wasn't there. Eventually now the beloved Dalek I'm sorry to say the brother suffered a heart attack and there's a room full of money in his house, the month so we young people we mean we run after money and we will do anything we will get rich or die trying we will do whatever it takes. But 50,000 years before the creation of man a lot wrote our risk. In our next sitting we will share a a hadith or a conversation Rasool Allah had with gibreel A Salaam who even told the prophets of love it was Salaam, it is has been written, life death and the risk has been written.
So should we pursue livelihood? Yes. But to get richer, think about what you're willing to sacrifice to get richer, tough narration. Now I balanced it out with what I feel to be the most beautiful thing of the night. Better than whatever I get to after this. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it was
selam narrated, it is narrated unto us are not the strongest of authorities. A weakness is there in the chain 1000 years before the creation of man, a loss of hardened water Allah, Allah, comprehend the words. Allah recited surah Yaseen, and the angels listen to Allah. Allah recited surah Yaseen and surah 436 and please tell me what surah is. Surah Taha
20 thank you so much of starting to sit there and cry about it for a while. Surah baja surah Yaseen Allah recited and how can I describe, and if you enjoy the recitation, just think and leave it at that. The angels heard Allah subhanho wa Taala and said, blessing is the oma, that will receive this book, fortunate, fortunate, fortunate. Fortunate is the woman that will carry this book. Why? Because Allah said these words. A last headwater Allah mentioned these words and we get the opportunity to mention them. La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Be proud to be Muslim. The third
we know that before the creation of man 50,000 years Allah subhanho wa Taala created the pen, the pen wrote 1000 years before the creation of man, Allah subhanho wa Taala recited some words from the Quran we take this at face value, and we are astonished by it. Number three, we find I said we would go in order number three we find in the creation before the clay Adam, what was created before that, can someone tell me and this is something we don't know all the time before the physical clay of a sudden, what was created?
fell well done whose souls
everybody I didn't put this in perspective I hadn't realized all souls were created, you will find in Surah out off the famous conversation that takes place when Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the scrolls have been written for some words of Khurana when they're the entire universe is in front of a lot in soul form. And Allah says the words and I include this so that you have some type of vividness Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Buddha a Salaam, the prophets and ambia Abu Bakr rhodiola one such Salman Rushdie Hitler, pop stars, everybody was there. Yes, I meant it. So you can think of it like really? Yeah. Every actress and singer and dancer they are all there
a lot asked a question as to be cool Pico Carlo.
Allah said allow us to look at the question of the Creator of the heavens in the earth. Am I not allowed to be Who am I not you're Rob six levels to the word Rob we're gonna have to go through it together. A lot didn't say any and Allah He didn't say because it's comes for other times if we're on a low refers to himself in the singular, didn't do it didn't call himself a lot didn't do it. He said unless to be a Rob Bhiku Rob six levels of maintenance, not only the one who creates, sustains gives life maintains that life and to him you return I will try my best to repeat those six but the time trickles because our time is upon us. So Allah subhana wa tada said to them, am I not the one
who created you sustained you, gave you life nourish you during those life during that life? Am I not the source to which you turn in pain and use asked for me? And lastly, the sixth is you will return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. What did we the prophets, the evil the good, the bad, and I cannot think but the guy who wrote Lord of the Rings, he said it too. He said kalu Bala Bala gives the word. Like when you tell you you ask your kid, you ask your kid Do you love mommy? What does your kid say? Of course, Mommy, of course. Bella. Alas shahina we testify to the statement that You are our Lord. These are the events that took place now. This portion gets rolled up. We realize
Allah subhanaw taala created the universe but then how did he create the universe? I would like you to look at IRA number 25 or 26 don't quote me It's the third page of Surah bacala last Ayah on the page could be 2526. But no worries. Why this creation is made you start going a step further. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us who will levy while on Polanco
me on one lady and I need you this is a class, you have to stay up with the vocabulary. So I'll say it you give me a transition
Who He unless he the one who one ah what is called a common create helped me out give me a little bit more so does Allah means to create Hanukkah means to create out of nothing Jalla means to take the salmon that was there the stuff was there and then make it one levy holla por la come for you, ma fille de what is in the earth, Jamia, Allah created everything from scratch for you.
This is the veneration and this is where we start to realize how much Allah has favored us, our time end. So we write three major facts, major facts, about creation, there are three levels, the first level of creation was made, who was created the first before us then there was a fire creatures before them. Angels melodica the melodica are created out of what friends sisters, what are they created out of? Light and do not possess Free Will key factor here. As Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, chumps for Allah Hama, hanfu.
key factor, everyone who deals with this, well if Allah knows everything, why bother? Allah said, Allah knows but human beings have the choice to sit in the mustard or to not do anything. That's a human choice. So the first angels the first creatures who are created from light without freewill, angels, they are created from a pure light there are levels of this light we can discuss it but yes, you can attribute from now on that angels can travel and move at the speed of light. Next, after angels what was created
sisters Jin Jin Jean noon shadow, the roots are various we won't touch it right now what were the jinn made out of
fire and now this is actual fire. So it has negative positive negative qualities and positive qualities but they the jinn were created. And they have to take care of themselves. It and I'm gonna say this on the onset, so we get this forever. The responsibility of the human being towards the jinn is not
the responsibility. A lot of times you see young people we have to study about jinn and type in all sorts of words into YouTube to see what we can know. I will give you the rewire clearly and flat a shave. an alum of our Dean told me I was interested in doing this. So I typed in the word see her gene into YouTube. He said all the lights in the house this is a very nice house in America because all the lights in the house and now all electricity shut down. Because after that I stopped searching those things. So shall I do your best don't get too involved in this world. Why do I say that? Who will lead the one of lacuna marfin or the Jamia so mastaba sama the third creature is made
out of clay. five levels to this clay we're going to do it and close it out on this clay number one we know from the narration of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah took clay from he took dirt from all over the earth. black clay Has anyone been down to Vegas where they have those sand dunes is like blue purple. No one's gonna say yes to go into Vegas story I went it's purple blue red, unless and he took sand from all over the place and he made Adam so first it was clay What did he mix the clay with?
With water the clay mix with water became skinny the dirt mixed with water became sticky clay and then Allah subhanaw taala Holla Holla Holla
Holla back home, sama, slow Warnock home so these levels I want you to realize human beings weren't just made out of dust the dust was mixed with water the water made clay the clay the water evaporated out of it and you know when you get like that mud that you can read like Plato, then Allah subhanaw taala from the playdough from the clay that was moldable Yeah, from the clay the clay that was moldable he made in sand and I want to leave off on this point so we can pick up from automatism. I didn't realize this but when I lost Parramatta Thoma saltwater nachum he fashioned Adam, he believes walks over to this clay creature and what did he do?
He knocked on him and what was he? He was hollow.
Other Melissa was hollow. So now I want you to put the lens you feel like she thought you believe [???]taka shavon cache Don right? He's a horrible, horrible but wait, if you walked up to a clay creature and you went, man, I am a fire creature. I rose up amongst all the other fire creature and now I'm amongst the angels. I'm sitting with the angels and telling them that may be that guy for a facade and fill out. I am and what what is this? Can I close on that point? When you see something and it doesn't look that attractive to you. You see something and it doesn't make
sense to you.
Allah in me are Nemo mala tada moon. Allah knows and we don't he believes he knew clay it's hollow bro This doesn't make any sense. Allah was giving the first creature his first test. It's easy to rise above in the ranks with the law when things are going good but when things are getting bumpy and rough and Aleck tests you, then you say all in our lamella Donna moon turn to Allah brothers turn to Allah and sisters remember these stories we're gonna pick up from a police walking over and going.
Kala Tani call up Donny mina wahala but what is he made up? It's some dirt. Yeah, dirt. Let's pick up from there in our next class data Wednesday, we're gonna have to do as quick recap try your best to take the notes or absorb something so that you can fulfill the Sunnah of the etiquettes of the student of knowledge follow the suit of law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam trapped knowledge the companion said how and he said BD kita. In your books, all that is cleaning pure is from Allah subhanaw taala is located and we'll see everyone next week on Wednesday was Sodom Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
