All right, so I'm like more cynical, logical guy to
come to losada to a cinema.
So we're going to be speaking about copies. And I know we've spoken about this topic in different way throughout the years that I've been with you. Sometimes I use a conventional term Toki. Most of the time, I don't. So most of the time I talk to you about the leaf and the law of the leaf in God, why are we Muslim and things of that nature. But the reason that I wanted to end the year this term speaking about this particular topic, is because it's the beginning and the end of everything that relates to us as Muslims. So for a person to enter into Islam, they say that word that Eva llama, no one will I worship except a lot. There's this bad translation, whereas there is no god but God,
which doesn't really makes sense, if you translate into English in that sense, it's really not not Buddha. In law, there isn't anyone who's worthy of my attention, my service, my devotion, my worship, my love, my fear, except a lot. And therefore, if you're going to be so exclusive in that sense, you better know exactly what you're talking about. And who is this a law that is so important? And are there other people who worship God, and make that claim that they worship Allah because Allah tells us in the Quran in surah, telang Caboose, he says, the law who know what you know, who can walk, and that we are just saying to other people, your God in our God is the same. So
it's the same God but what other people believe about a law is where we diverged is where we separate, and this will become clear. Now, why is this important? Because one day, you're going to be challenged, somebody is going to walk up to you and say, how can you be a Muslim? Like, why do you remain Muslim with everything science has shown? Aren't you smart enough to give up this whole religion thing? Don't you know that? You know, we just hear somebody might come and challenge you. And you say, Hi, you know, why are you still Muslim? When in the name of your religion 1000s have been killed? Don't you know what happened in September 11? Don't you know? And you're like, whoa.
But the many of those arguments are really hollow. Like, it's like me coming up to you and saying, How dare you be an Australian? When that guy flew over to Christchurch and killed 50 people in that mosque? How dare you still keep an Australian passport? It's the same kind of argument in the sense that someone is blaming you for the actions of somebody else in the name of who you are and the things you espouse. Well, that guy who was raised in Australian schools, is that where he learned to be a killer? He lived in Brisbane, is that where he learned how to shoot people while they prayed and in the house of God? And the answer, of course, is no, that's ridiculous. It's a ridiculous
assertion. Well, it's the same thing. If someone was to say to me, somebody killed somebody by say, and said, Allahu Akbar, you say Allah hawkwood. in prayer, that means you're the same. And the answer is no. It's a ridiculous assertion. So how do you how can you articulate what you believe in?
To those who don't know what you believe in and have made false assumptions about what you believe in? More importantly, forget everybody else? How do I make my heart settled in believing what I believe for the reasons I believe them, because of the honor that I have for a loss in common with Anna. And therefore, this is an essential in our component in our discussion. I want to begin with a short clip. This is one of the people who has really loved to me, Dr. Abdullah giveaway, and this is a short one minute clip of something first of the points that the chef gave us is a tawheed. That before anything else,
one of the great issues or the central issue that Muslims have to really look at again, and to housecleaning is our is our connection with Allah subhanaw taala. It's our belief, our tawheed because really the real issue, the crux of the matter. What we said when we enter Islam is La ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasool Allah is, when we die, we pray that you will also say that he died. So it's the beginning of the road and the end of the route. It is what you needed all of the prophets. And why dandiya the oneness of the Creator. And when we say this, we do not mean only just that we believe in one God, because the Christians also some Christians say they believe in one God.
And I came about a situation like that. I was in the Caribbean.
And we were visiting a place a church called Pentecostal.
And we were in a debate we were Muslims were just like Muslims and we were delivering our refrigerator.
Somebody has borrowed from the church. And we got into a debate and a crowd formed. And so some of the brothers got very nervous. And they were trained and they had debates like admin D doubt school. And so they said, You people, you worship many gods and you worship three, and you're confused in the Trinity. And the people were confused. And so the minister came along, and he heard the argument, and he said, Oh, no, no, no, no, we worship one God.
And everybody stopped. And then I thought to myself, I said, Wait a minute,
who is that God, and he said, Jesus.
So in their mind, they worship one God. Now that's important.
What people believe about God is not always the same, even though they have a belief in God. And what I want in July, just hang it up these notes, and the slides are there. Now there's missing sections in it, where you're going to fill them along as we're going along, right. So each and every step along the way, you'll find sections where you need to connect with the notes, listen to what I'm saying, and get information from this discussion. The very first part of believing in God believing in Allah is going to be the belief in his existence. And I want you to understand that there's this false notion that he's intentionally marketed towards you, there's people who want you
to believe that most human beings don't believe in God. And that's not true. The absolute reality is that it is a natural belief, a natural fit, or a natural inclination, in most human beings to believe in the principles of causation, that things didn't just happen in isolation on their own randomly in chaos, that there is something someone who made the things the way they are. And I want you to be able to understand that people are going to try to make you think that atheism is logical. And that that's that the science leads you to that conclusion, it's actually the opposite. You might find lots of people who believe in God or the Great Spirit, but we don't like religion. And they
don't want to follow a church or a synagogue, or for some evil, I missed it. They don't want people to tell him what to wear, what to eat, how to do it, but they want to continue to believe in God in a personal way. They say, Listen, I'm not coming to church, I believe what I believe that has nothing to do with you. And inwardly when they're in trouble, they had gone helped me, because they believe there's something greater than them, there's something greater than the world.
belief in Allah subhanaw taala is logical belief in the Creator is logical. When you look out into the world with a lens that doesn't have arrogance.
It's easy to understand. Now there was a study by Oxford University, you can Google it. And they said, We want to know do young children believe in God, we're talking about 18 months, two years old, three years old, children who aren't able to articulate speak about belief. So they said, Let's show them a sequence of video or pictures. So the first sequence the first group of kids, all of them this age, they put them all together, and they said, okay, kids, we want you to watch this and see if you agree or not, we want you to see these photos. And we want you to arrange them in the right way. For photos, for example, the first photo, a bottle full of water, second photo, someone
about to throw some a ball, a ball at the bottle, third photo, the ball striking the bottle, fourth photo, the ball, the bottle has fallen on the ground, and liquid is scattered everywhere. Keep looking at and saying Yeah, that makes sense.
Then they brought another group of kids same age, same intellectual capacity, IQ and whatever. And they showed them the pictures, the video out of sync, that the ball leaves the bottle, and the bottle that was on the ground with liquid comes up on its own, and that what was spread out and the water that fell actually went back into the bottle. And it went in reverse kids said No, that doesn't make sense. You got to do it the other way. Do you know what that proves? It proves that kids understand the principle of causation. That you can't have that happen unless that happen. You can't look up at the sky at the trillions of cells, human cells that inhabit you, at the greater
number of non human cells. There's more bacteria in your stomach, non human cells than all of your human cells. There's more things living in you and on you than you.
That's incredible. And that's just one. And there's billions who lived are living and we live and have lived on one planet, out of what we believe to be 10s hundreds, maybe 1000s billions of planets.
So you come in say, no, it just all happen.
It doesn't make sense. A child can tell you that doesn't make sense.
Have you ever you find most people believe in a super being something they believe in the existence of God.
But that's not where we stop. as Muslims. And this is the basis of therapy. This is where we break off. It's not just we believe in the existence of a lot, no people leaving the uniqueness of who he is. And when I use the word he I'm not speaking about in terms of gender a lot is genderless. There is no he he but this is due to the efficiency of the English language in the Arabic language hola doesn't necessarily mean gender. It doesn't necessarily mean man woman, because a lot is genderless. He is who he is, let me let you know he is as he is supposed to either.
So how do you believe in the laws uniqueness, you need to know who he is. And I want you to see the formulation of what we believe as Muslims as having three important principles. The first principle is we believe that Allah is the ultimate Lord.
And that word in English lordship, it doesn't you know, it doesn't have the same concept as Rob, Ruby, Ruby and r&b has 7080 different meanings. The Creator, the Sustainer, the giver, that taker, the the one who brought out of nothing.
And that principle are up is very, very important. Because immediately you can begin to understand the magnificence of a lump. And if you begin to assume that a law is your Lord, which many people do. Many people will say that God is God. So we would ask a Hindu who believes in many gods millions of gods, do you believe in one God? They say? Yes, you say, but you have millions of No, no, no. So they all go back to that one God, but he's the supreme god, Brahman, or whatever. If you were to ask Christians that you just saw Dr. Abdullah Hakim quick, he is a no, no, we believe in God, His name is Jesus. And
most people believe in the existence and the Lordship of God. So that's not enough. Even the people at the time of the prophets I send them who fought against him. Allah tells us into the caboose lane says,
He will adore Sahaba ships old farmer who created the heavens and the earth and made the moon in the late afternoon of law, it is the God of gods and he that the word along means and he that the Supreme Lord, they used to have other gods, and we'll talk about why later. But did they believe in the Lordship? Yes. So that's not what makes us distinct. That's not what makes us unique in our worship of Allah is that we make exclusive UI, that our worship is only for Allah, if I believe that there is this Supreme, that there is an AVI the Supreme, I will harness the greatest creator, the originator from nothing. If I do believe that, then why would I worship anything lesser than him?
And then immediately suspends belief in any other thing. So how do I know how to worship Him? It's in that third part names and attributes. Now, I don't want you to just write the names and attributes of Allah, I want you to write the qualifications of Allah, what makes him qualified to be alone, and what nobody else possesses. But he today in our morning assembly, I read you in the reading of a difficulty, right? And when you read it,
it's the greatest verse in the Quran, because it tells you about a lot in that ayah is an answer to a lot of what people have made chip partnerships with a lot. Why is Jesus not God to us as Muslims because I could see just two words that are from the names and descriptions of a month, a lot of refers to himself, Allahu La Ilaha Illa, Houma What?
What's the next few words? And how you are you the ever living? So if you claim as Christians that Jesus died, he can't be God?
Because if he died, who took care of the world, who took care of the world before he was born? How could you worship a God who was in his mother's stomach will have to grow who didn't have senses? And if she gave birth to him and fed him, and then he had to go to the bathroom after she had to clean him? How can he be?
The one who sustains old? So when those two words that describe a lot, you see that if I'm does the belief in something other than a lot, so when you begin to think about the names of Allah in that sense, and you say that the loss of kind of Allah is Allah,
the Almighty and his greatness? Well, hold on a second. People say that, you know, there's this God. This is the god of war, and this is the God of peace. So if you are a god, that is only war, and if you're a god, that's only peace. How can you be great when you are lacking a compassion or you are lacking the strength
It undoes the belief in that deity as being worthy of worship.
And therefore each and every one of the names of Allah is not just something you say, oh, let's sing the song. Hola, de la either.
You know, now, it's supposed to give you a map of what is not a law. When you assess them in their qualification. Can Jesus be God? No. Why cuz you say he died. You say that he wasn't until he was born. You say that in his worldly realm? He didn't exist. So where was he? And why didn't the people before him? What were they worshiping other than Him? How can we don't have Moses ever saying, oh, Israel, your Lord is one? Why does he say, oh, Israel, your Lord is three?
If Moses is an extension came before Jesus, and he was a person you believe, spoke of God spoke directly to God, surely God would tell him that?
And what about the day of his death? Why in the world, it would be blasphemy to say that he is God,
as is claimed by some, and therefore from a theological present from a Philips philosophical perspective, it doesn't add up. And I know that there are different principles of the triune nature and things that we'll probably send in year 11, and 12.
That will go into deeper depth, but I want you to understand the basis of it. So how do we define our job?
How do we define what it is that we believe in, and I want you to see that the three things come together towards this belief, the first part of it tell he literally means unification, you've got to put all three together, you can just believe in the existence of God and not worshipping, you can say I believe in the existence of God, and I'm going to worship God. But I'm going to worship God who has a similar themes that are different to the names and the attributes that are known to be godly have a loss of capital into it, it will make sense it's unacceptable. And therefore we assert the oneness of a lot in our belief in the loss of economy without it. The second and important thing
is that all of the all of our actions as human beings, as a part of our coheed, we believe that they are directly or indirectly related to lost power and command. Now that's very important. Life and that birth, restriction of it health, wealth, prosperity, hardship, pain.
All of it directly or indirectly is under the command of a law. And that's really important. And I want you to think of this as you're taking your notes down. What is the pain that a person experiences today is what is going to make them great tomorrow.
This happened to me. So my grandfather was a very influential person in my life. My father's father, me, I'm also on dialysis and light upon his grave. He was an Imam. In Egypt. He was a professor, he was a teacher. He was an island at Alfred University. And I used to love every summer going to sit with him studying the Quran with him, he would encourage me, he would give me books, he would explain things to me. And when he passed away, it devastated me. It was really difficult. And I remember going back to Egypt when my grandfather was in there, and I would go and visit who were his students.
So I remember one of my teachers, Chef, Mohammed Sal, footnoted Dean, you know something about how I miss my grandfather. And then I come home and I missed that he used to be the Imam of the masjid. And now his voice is no longer there in the microphone and things like that. And he said to me, I'm here, perhaps this moment, and you might not understand this now. But perhaps this moment of sadness is going to make you a great teacher in the future is going to make you a great father, and a great husband in the future. I said, How? He said, because you love someone so completely, that when Allah took them from you, you understood the importance of looking after those who are with you. And
perhaps you as my students, the only reason that you feel in me, I hope you do compassion, and that I care for you. And then I have love for you. And I have concern for you. Perhaps that the reason that my children, I give them more support my wife I give her great love is because of that moment of tragedy that I was so upset at that time that made me think about this world. Well hold on at any moment, I can lose someone so if I'm going to have them, I better do the best that I can with the time I have them for it. Does that make sense? So that moment of loss and tragedy changed me. So that into my future 20 years later, 30 years later, 50 years later, it makes me a better person
because I experienced that moment of loss and therefore directly or indirectly, everything is in the command of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And as a part of our belief, if you believe a lot
is a law isn't that He created us and then left us? No, He created us and he's aware of us. And a woman isn't either most acquainted with his creation and sort of the moon. Allah says the Musashi Salaam
was not to cut the NFC I raised you up to prepare you for this day. So Moosa, he was lost, his mother was thrown in the river by his mom, he was raised up on the eyes of Pharaoh, he wouldn't experience all that he had to flee from it, all of these difficulties that he had to snarling, so that I can make you factor you make you ready for what is going to be today, and I had my watchful eye over you, you have, right, finally, the last part of our time. This is the complete definition of Toki. It is to believe that Allah is one with a partner in his dominion. Another word is the kingdoms in the creation of a law and his actions, not just who he is, but what he does. Number two,
that's called the rule. Number two is without similitude that we don't have
anything that is similar to a lot. And anything that is a lot is different to it. Anything you can imagine a lot of different doing. Anything that can be a lot is different to it. Because the nature of the Creator is different to his creation, that emotional health is a principle of our belief. He is distinct from his creation Sopranos Island, and find me that was the kind of guy that is without rival, that no one can make a command can speak in his presence, no one can do by other than his will. No one can force something that isn't by his choosing to kind of move without him. We're gonna watch this video. It's a two minute clip of him, he has a body. And he speaks about so he and I want
you to pay attention to the three things that we just spoke about. So he
comes from the verb what had
what had, while had with the shutdown, that what happened, and what had means to ascribe unity to something,
to ascribe unity to something.
So tohave is the concept of believing something to be one.
to hate is the concept of believing something to be one. It's a verbal noun. It's a noun and a verb combined in Arabic, we call it Muslim, don't hate is the verbal noun of believing something to be one.
And when we use the E, in an Islamic fashion,
belief, believing in the ultimate unity of Allah.
Believing in the ultimate unity of Allah.
And this is manifested in a number of different areas, I want you to write this down below, believing in the ultimate unity of Allah implies, number one, believing that Allah is one and unique in his lordship.
Number two, believing that Allah is one at unique in his names and attributes. And number three, that believing that Allah is one a unique in his right to be worshipped. Those are the three things that we just mentioned. shaquiesha speaks eloquently, that a lot is unique in his power in his lordship, in his dominance of the world, that he is who he is to count on time. Number two, that he's unique in the sense of who he is, and what he does. Nobody has the qualities of a law, the qualifications of a law, nobody has the power of a law. Number three is because of those two, he should be the only one that's worship. Now, I want you to begin to think about the forehand in those
three in those three descriptions. So when we speak about Joe heat, we said it's the three His Lordship, his worship, and his names and attributes. So as soon as you open them, we're on the first chapter of the Quran and Sultan fathia read with me. So if in fact if I in the translation, and I want you to categorize every verse in accordance to one of the three and what you'll know is every verse of the Quran is going to fit into reinforcing some key so a lot begins by saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim which one of the three is it
allows identifying himself which one of the three levels of therapy visit Allah Snapple cigar Hey, every it's a lot of giving, taking attention to mankind. If you're going to begin this journey of the Orion beginning in my name, who am I let me tell you who I am and nobody else is. So somebody comes in tells you I'm the God of War say that doesn't make sense because a lot is a rush man.
excluded. There's no such a thing as Gods the war gods of peace gods and fertility. No. I am who I am.
In my entirety and it doesn't change in accordance to how you deal with me. So there's a person the prophets I send them said no and then dunia if this world was something important with a lot mess up. I mean, hi, Catherine Champa he wouldn't give a sip of its water to someone who just believes in it. Because people will say, Well, why is God merciful to those who don't worship Him? Because the world that they live in is meaningless in comparison to all of the creation of Allah. It's insignificant, you're putting too much significance into who you are, you're too self centered, you think you're more important than you are. So Allah tells us the hukou semi logical
denies the creation of the heavens and the earth is much more grave than your creation as a mankind. You're meeting with him if Allah wills he would remove you. We have to be alpha in and bringing your place others as was done before. There were other things that walk the earth and no longer here. There were other creations before mankind. There were Neanderthals and other things and they were wiped out in different ways and disease and colic, cosmic
occurrences. There were other things that walk the earth, we believe that there were jinn who were removed and in their place we came.
Don't put that we are so great that there's nothing greater than a philosopher. There's more much greater than you.
rubia so the first verse at 100 Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. He is who he is. What's the second verse? Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, which tell me visit
the Lord. So if you believe I am who I am, then understand that I govern and I control all of this. The next verse easy or rough man, Rahim.
He reminds you again, Maliki yo Mateen. Which one is that? That's a tricky one.
He is the Lord the king, on the day of judgment, who will hold judgment of people. It's in both is that he is the rock. And he is this is who I am, I am and Malik, I'm the one who will control. This is one of my descriptions. So no, me. But I'm also the lord of that day. Nobody else has power.
So if you believe in these two, what can lead you to then do?
So what's the next verse iaca. Not only are you allowed to be worship, what you can study, so only you do I worship and only you are going to ask for help. Now when you begin to learn these categories of depth, and you begin to read the full and in that sense, you begin to understand the Quran in a deeper way.
Want you to try this verse out in your notes, I want you to circle the three categories of aid in the three different sections of this earth. This is just one verse in any version of the verses chosen at random. So in terms of money, of a loss of kindness, or oppose Center, where it was out of the way, they nazmul man Sabu,
who was severely bad that he had done a Buddha who said, He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them which though he does this,
which though he does not? Come on in with me, it's the complete of lordship good that I put you who was solitary by decades, so worship Him,
be patient upon that.
There you go.
which time he designed, worship? And then the finally hadn't come yet? Is there anything like him? Is there anything that can take the same places here, which don't he does, that
smells to God well done.
and I know in your box, it's small little boxes, you can go out of the boxes and shop on your writing. So let's make formally once again, the three definitions of coheed. First, aid is a Boolean, which is a firm and definite belief that Allah the Almighty God alone is the creator, the master, the owner, and that the command is only with you to kind of Medina for none other. That's the first step of belief. There are other faiths who hold this belief. There are other peoples who hold this belief. What makes us distinct from them is that we then transition to the second section, that if we believe he is who he is, then we single out God alone for all worship. We don't put our
trust our reliance, our love, our hope, our fear in anything that should only be with him with other than him. So we singled him out alone, for all worship and not to worship anything along with him. And in that spirit, I want you to think about that word La Ilaha Illa
Law. It's never easy and it's bad. You're negating everything. Did you know for you to be a believer, you must first be an unbeliever. So I'm proud to say that
I'm an unbeliever, all of you are who follow all of your unbelievers in what in anything other than a love, you must begin fade by saying
lakita there is no Gods worthy of worship Illa Allah and Allah Subhana Allah commands is this an Orion young Unum aegyptiaca, who you must disbelieve in the dictum, along with all the devilish things that are worshipped other than Allah, anything that is of an evil nature in that sense. So a part of my belief is that I say, this is not something that I will ever worship. And that's a way of purifying my heart, so that I will only worship Allah some kind of went to Adam, a lot as a signal for I'm not gonna do any of these thing for you is your way for you with your gods, for me is mine. And for me to assume Allah is mine, I push back against anything other than him. simpana, which is
number three, is that as Matt was so fat, it means that we have a belief that a lot is unique, and that he is who he is, without any denial of who he is. So don't come and say, Oh, no, how can a lot hear us? Because he, uh, you know, hearing it means that sound waves travel and they resonate in an eardrum. And so are you trying to say, God, you know, God is like us? And the answer is no. He hears in a way that the kids His Majesty, he sees in the way that befits His Majesty, there is no denial, I won't deny something of a law that he said about himself. He's the one who tells us ladies secondly, cliche, nothing is like it. Well, who has sent me and we'll see him and he is the old
hearing the OSI. So his hearing is in a capacity that is light for him alone, nothing from his creation, hears the way he hears, sees the way he sees, knows the way he knows he's aware that way he's aware wills in the way that he wills.
Nothing in creation is life, the creator.
Nothing in the creation is similar to the Creator. So time went on.
And that's a principle from the principles of terrain. It's a principle from the principles of singling out unifying, making our belief one with a law
What's the importance of delegate? Well, the first important is to know that Allah will not punish a people if they come into belief in him. And whenever the people say what a bad meme you couldn't do McDonald's food, I sent messengers, every nation I want you to know that this word messenger here, and messenger in the Quran has different contexts. So in salty I seen Allah says he he ordered two messengers to go, what God says habitat is unaccented third one, though three messengers, according all of us as Muslims, that they weren't messengers from God but they were messengers from Jesus on a saddam to the people of unhealthier entity, all right, so they were the messengers of the Messenger
of God and are going to be sigh send them he used to send messengers to other people. In fact, in speaking to you now I'm conveying you the message of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in every town in every place, Allah has sent people who remind people of faith, if people hear it, understand it, as now you've begun to understand. So he, we cannot rebel against it in their heart and say, I don't care. That becomes a devilish nature in its in its capacity, deep the shaitan worship another god other than a lot.
What may take on this belief?
Did he begin worshipping an idol? No.
What did he do? He didn't conform to what was instructed by him. Allah subhanaw taala says to him, make your subservience to Adam connectify woman, I'm better than him. Who is he worshiping, he's worshipping his mind himself his decision that I can choose what I want to do, even if God told me that I should do different. The second thing that's important in Nevada, Allah doesn't forgive that somebody willfully knowing him, chooses other than human worship. May Allah protect us from this along with me. So we're going to end our discussion today with and this is in your notes, there's nothing to add to your notes tell either rubia once again that reinforce it is that we understand
who is a mock, he is the owner, the master, he is a notic a second, he's the one who is the nourisher of a you He is the Sustainer and the giver. But that also means if we understand that this definition includes true and complete power is used, that means he should be the only one with the right to be obeyed.
Which means that he is the only one who can legislate and make a difference. I want you to ask this last section in your notes it's missing there that no one has been around. And therefore the determinations of like not even our Prophet Mohammed's I send them as you learned last term with me not even the profits are excellent is a legislator, he's not the one who says Alan Cohen, rather a lot of says to him, no
matter how Rama
alikoum Come, let me tell you what Allah has made time for you what Allah has made prohibited, and that you should equivalent don't, you know, don't worship under the law and on and on and on. In the verses, no one has the right to be obeyed in a complete capacity other than a law. So if someone was to forbid you from praying, they don't have that right. Even in Australia, they don't have that right. So right of freedom of worship is something that is an inalienable right of every human being. Nobody has the right to force you to not worship the Lord and the God that you choose.
What are some of the Abrahamic proofs? What What does the law put forward as the reasons? Well, the first one is fitflop, not word, I want you to translate it from your notes, to me, a natural desire, a natural inclination, a natural disposition, it comes natural to human beings to understand that there is God just like that example I gave you of those young children in that in that research that proves they believe in a principle of causation, that this world didn't come from, by no means just the same way that water isn't spilled on its own. Something causes things to happen.
And therefore, every object has a creator, everything in existence, you don't walk into the desert and see the pyramids and say, Wow,
that made itself it will make sense. You don't look at Stonehenge and say, that's just random. Right? There's got to be some design because it has design in it. So anything that has design and complexity, your assumption is that there's something that in its very first origin brought into being now that doesn't discount and denying that there are elements of evolutionary processes within us within some of the things that we experience in life. But here are certain important scientific principles. There is no research to ever show that something chemical becomes biological.
So you can bring something chemical, and this is a chemical, this is an element, and then you get life. But that's what some people try to sell you. They try to say, well, we don't know how living things came. But there was like a mix of really hot water near the vents at the bottom of the oceans. And it was fertile for, you know, the chemicals came together somehow. Well, what's that somehow, what was before the big bang, before it was bang? What brought into being when everything was collapse? Well, who collapsed in the first place? What's its origin?
Every object has a beginning, has a creator, signs of the creation are within, you can look within yourself and you look at the magnificence of the creation of a love. And if you look at it with the right lens, you see that there is intelligence in the design of who we are, and where we are and how we are.
There's also the messengers of God who have come throughout time and the natural human instinct to obey that inclination and fibrox to believe in a greater Super Duty and power.
The pagans at the time of the Prophet I sell them in Mecca, they also believe in Allah. So Allah tells us in the Quran in surah,
Chapter 29, verse 61, to 63, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth till the end of the verses, they will say a lot, they believe that, but what were the things that kept them from faith, they were two things they used to worship their false idols as intercessors and you'll find that a lot of people still do that today, even amongst Muslims. Sadly, some Muslims will corrupt parts of the faith that was sent to the province Isilon, they have a belief that somebody is so holy, that they can intervene on their capacity. Or if they were this, you know, somebody you know, made a law, forgive them, some parents will come and say, my son, weird, this thing. And if you wear
it around your neck, as long as it's there, nothing bad's gonna happen to you. And then the kid falls and breaks their armor.
Some people will put a to the codici on the rearview mirror of their car, and they take as long as that they're no car action, or they'll put the moose hop in their glove box. As long as the moose hop is in the car philosopher good. There's millions of car accidents with most hops in the car.
What is it that makes the Orion and protector it's the media. So if you were selected ikusi with me this morning and your media was just to sing it or just to read it because
We do an assembly and it wasn't a will. And that's why you'll hear me every morning. What do I say? We asked them lots of patterns to make this reading what?
A protection for us and
guidance. It's my way of trying to remind you that you need to have this media, but this is why you read it. Or else it doesn't work. It's about faith in a loss of Hannah Montana. It's not you can write, you can, you can wear whatever you want. We're a Christian you chose Okay, shoot me, shoot me. What do you think is gonna happen? You're gonna die.
It's not gonna protect you. That's not how it works. Don't tell us God. And they used to see that their gods were intercessor they say I'm a filthy person. I can't just speak to God. You know?
So I'm going to worship this thing. And this spirit in this I will talk to God and my man and a lot tells us don't do that. Allah says he that said that guy the guy right there. me when they ask you about me in the party. I'm close to them. huji Buddha with an answer the one who calls you Yeah, you're gonna happen to a lot. Oh, you believe repent to Allah. They don't need to come to you young.
You they don't have to absolve themselves and there's faith where they will worship something hoping that thing will speak on behalf of God that salt the thought of intercession in other faith they had at the time of the pagan Arabs. They said men Nabucco, millennial pottery buena Illa, huizhou, fell in sort of Azuma, sort of 39 verse number three, we only worship these idols because they'll bring us closer to God, I'm not really good at worship. So if I practice worshiping this, then I can become better at worshiping God God, which is also a false understanding.
can a person be a Muslim and fall into these kind of questionable practices? Yes, a lot Ellison sort of true. So one may or may not accept that.
There are many people who say and claim to have a complete faith in God, but elements of their faith they put their trust in other than Allah.
May Allah protect us from this, that they shared a lot. One of the ways that we do it the prophets I send them said, he said, I am a Muslim of the things I fear for my own math, a shield can have a hidden ship. They say what does it mean to be hidden ships? He said, any of whom are roger that a person will stand up for you exactly know so that they will make their prayer extra special because they see somebody watching.
So your mom, your teacher, one of the reasons why I don't have monitors for you in high school for prayer is I want you to pray. And I don't want it to be others. This teacher is going to make note of me and what I said no, because I don't want that to be a habit in you that you only pray if somebody walks by you.
If just say, you know some people are coming to your home and use as okay Yella, leave the prayer.
And all of a sudden you're like Sunday's
shower, but normally, every other men that have in your room
that should it should cultivate, it's not that you're worshiping other than a lot. It's that you made that person who's gonna live and die who's meaningless. No one's gonna give you $50 because you did my show, like you sounded really good data, here's 50 bucks. No one's gonna compensate you. But sometimes we make that mistake. May Allah protect us from committing these levels of incursions? What were their excuses? They said, We believe in oviya. But we don't believe in the exclusive worship of Allah alone.
They believe that Allah is Allah, He is the Lord, but not if you only need to worship they might get worship other things, but it was good business.
And they would question each other agendas.
wacky done, how dare you make all of our gods one God? Why is he trying to take control of everything we worship? Right, and sort of saws, you know, the 38 chapter, verse number four, their rejection of Islam was because of telehealth and Hulu here, not telling me the movie.
So this is where we're going to end our discussion today. In
our first session of delfy, and inshallah we'll continue next time we see each other in the evening. He Donna was said Mr.
