join us Yes.
It's a blessing from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah anytime we gather together to mention his words. And initially, it's important for us to acknowledge that no one speaks about a law better than himself. And no one honors a loss of Hannah hota Allah in speech in description, then himself and no one narrates to us about a law better than the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and therefore any discussion that we may contribute towards seeking an explanation or a meaning to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala fail at doing justice. And therefore the constant theme amongst the people who study and teach the whole on is that the Quran is a book and a revelation, a scripture
that is received from above and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala always says, 10 Zilla it's something that I brought down in stages, it's wait is too much to be delivered in one go. And Allah Subhana Allah destined the best of hearts, to be the one to receive a Quran that if it was to be received by a mountain, it would crumble. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in Surah Al Hajj now and then there has been an Allah jevin if this Quran, this thing you recite this ever pertinent reminder that I've sent as the final message to humanity, if it was to be delivered to a mountain, it would seize and crumble and shake by the might of the word that has been received.
And therefore before we begin talking about salted milk, it's really important I think, to set
how it is that the people of Islam have come to approach the Koran and the Koran has always been something that is categorized now one of the things I think is a part of the soul, the soul of the study of our Deen is that you can categorize things any way you write you like, so you can, you know, use different names this section is for this purpose, this section is for that purpose. categorization or nomenclature is a human
interaction with the Quran. And the scholars, they actually when they analyze the forum, they would break it down into different sections and they would say, you know, these, these sources are grouped together for this purpose. And these verses are grouped together for this purpose and when any more in the law but the knowledge ultimately is with Allah subhana wa Tada. So let's begin from the very initial purpose of the Quran.
There are two main branches of what the Quran seeks to do.
Two main sections. The first of it are things that we call the roots, that
the things that relate to what we believe, why we believe it, who we believe in. And then there's a second section which branches off from those roots, it grows from that stable trunk. And you see this illusion in the Quran in the statements of the prophets I send them often. Allah Subhana Allah says we're method, Kelly, Matthew polybutene. Khashoggi are not in play here. But in Oslo Hobbit, when you look at that kenema, this La ilaha illa Allah, given the imagery of a tree, that its roots are deep into the ground. So there's books written about the trees of faith, the tree of faith, and the branches that emerge from that tree. And therefore you hear in the authentic Hadith of the
Prophet Mohammed Salim, and there's a book written by emammal by Houthi, carrying the same name sure herbal Eman. The branches are the subsidiaries of faith. Were the prophets I seldom said that this
faith that has been delivered to you. Bighorn was a to Alberta and was habarana shorba. It has 60 or 70 different branches of it, the least of it, that you see something harmful in the path of people. So you remove it, that's from a man. It's a sign of faithfulness that you recognize. There's one above you in authority Subhana Allah, that if you see something that you feel could harm someone, your heart moves you I need to correct this. Well, higher Amina Eman and having modesty higher in any aspect of your life is a firm part of faith. It's a touch in every aspect of faith. And therefore when you hear this word Hi, yeah, it sounds like hyah it sounds like life, right? Because
HIA is used in every part of your life higher in what you were higher in what you eat, how you eat it, how much you spend on it, how you get in what you say how you say it, who you say you're to hire is in everything you need to have that sense of bashfulness modesty you know, with holding yourself back between you and society because of Allah subhana wa Tada.
So, because there are these two branches, there are these two sections, the roots had to be laid down first, and therefore the Imams of of Islam they began talking about the meccan Sutras, the majority of the Quran, in terms of the number of sutras were revealed in Mecca, mocha Rama and the meccan surah have a totally different flavor. Totally different sound, totally different rhythm To the suitors that are revealed in in Medina. And if you were to hear if you come to know of it, if you begin to listen to the sutras revealed in Mecca, you see that the verses are short,
a Roman, one word element.
And notice how Allah joins his merciful illness with the Quran. And it says if Allah subhanaw taala, saying, a rough man, this Lord of mercy, his expression of His mercy can be found in alkaline which he seeks you to learn it. And notice how the Quran is always linked with knowledge because no greater knowledge is then the knowledge of the Quran, or Walkman. Alamin Quran Hala insan then comes the creation of men, which means to you in that syntax, that the Lord of mercy intended the Quran to be the method of knowledge and teaching for the humanity that he had not yet created subhana wa Tada. And therefore the message of the Quran was coherent, even before the creation of Adam, what
Allah wanted as being Huck was always hot, even before Adam came into existence. alayhis salam,
so there were roots
and they were laid in Mecca, the rhythm of the Quran, even its sound, you know, those short verses were for a purpose. The people in Mecca wouldn't give the prophets I send him a chance. Every time you'd say one or two verses, they would cut him off, they would walk away they put cotton in their ears, they used to stop the people entering into Mecca during the time of Hajj and they would tell them put cotton in your ear for in the kalama huka center because the words you're going to hear from this guy, they are bewitching, they can they can they're magical, in their sound and their rhythm and their meaning. And you know some of the some of those who came to Islam, they said I put
on in my ears. He said I put it in my ears forever Allahu Allah and use manual Quran but Allah forbade that I leave Mecca, except the Quran penetrated through the cotton.
So I took the cotton out of my ears and I spoke to myself in that cow julu Sha, la v when you're a man who's a poet, you're a man who's intelligent, you have an intellect 34 copy hominin mineral mineral Hassan, you know how to differentiate good from bad listen to what the man has to say, who should tell you not to at least listen, listen to what he has to say. See, it's in that context that this sutra was revealed. It's in that moment in these Mexican sutras that tabara can levy via the hidden money was revealed to the prophets. I seldom when there was that antagonism and they would deter people from him, peace and blessings be upon him. And of course the man he says, As soon as I
heard the four iron and I listened to it with an open heart, and let my ears access it and I came at it with sincerity, I came to faith.
So roots were laid down in Mecca, the rhythm of the Quran was short verses so that people could hear one or two. But the short verses also had a rhythm that led you on to want to know what's coming next, almost like a cliffhanger effect and you would hear a rock
Man, you Okay, who is he?
He's the one who taught the Quran Why? halaqaat insane. So what does he want from an insane Allah who began He created him and wants him to learn gave them the ability to study and teach and knowledge as chimps well Come on, don't you think you're the center of everything? Look to the sun and the moon because ban all of them are accounted for when measuring what shadow is Sudan. Don't you know that the stars in the trees prostrate to a lot
The heavens above you, all of it is for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they would, even though they didn't want to listen, and they would walk away, they walk away slowly, because they want to keep hearing it. And there's verses you know, some kind of law and so forth and Caffe, Allah Subhana. Allah says that the prophets I seldom would wake up in the morning, and he would see the footprints
of the mushrikeen outside his home, and they would sit under his window outside his door, listening to him recite the Quran in his prayer. And in the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim, Abu sufian, who later becomes a Muslim, he describes those early days, he said, You know, one day I actually bumped into Abu Jamal in the darkness of the night, we'd come when there wasn't any moon so no one would see us we cover ourselves up and we'd sit there and all of a sudden I bumped into him, he bumps into me and say, What are you doing here? He said, I'm doing what you're doing.
while lying in the kalama hula hula Halawa his words has a beauty to it. But we can't accept it. Because he's from this tribe. We're from this tribe. He's from this place where for him
and macabre, the arrogance over would would overcome them. So when the Prophet would come and see their footprints, and Allah would tell him who was listening to him last night. Allah says that the Prophet land like a bath or Neff suka Allah,
you are so excessively sorrowful more than full at them not coming to faith.
And Allah says to the Prophet don't have that sorrow in them, you know, we haven't had et Abba. They will not come to faith that Abuja will not accept sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from you.
So those are the meccan surah. Then there are the Medina sutras the Medina sutras have a very distinct flavor. Their verses are longer the longest sutras in the Quran, you will find in Medina, the sutras are longer not not just the verses, but the pseudos are longer. There are now it's not just about what is faith, what is the day of judgment, who is on law? What is right what is wrong now it is about the legislation and the rulings and the regulations that you must live by to achieve that final place of happiness that you seek with Allah subhanaw taala. Now they're on a map, they identify. It's not just the meccan surah and the Medina Sutras, but they identify two prophets of
Allah, messengers of Allah, who become very important and significant. The two most spoken of prophets of Allah that are given to us in our own as an example to follow our Ibrahim and Musa and Abraham's example is also he talks about faith. The sun has Arabi. Now this isn't God, the comet, the moon, this is in Allah, the stars, they leave the clock God, this idol he breaks it. That's not God. You don't hear of any of this from Moosa Moosa, the second prophet who was given to us, it's all about rules and regulations. Allah Subhana Allah gave to Sharia to Moosa, and therefore, you hear a lot introduces Sophie Ibrahim, well, Moosa, they become the two first prophets mentioned to
our Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first of them Ibrahim, listen to him. Yeah, Mohamed Romania, Tabby, amelita, Ibrahima hanifa. Follow whatever military Ibrahim Ali for follow the way of Ibrahim in that hanafy way that that pure way cleansed way, where he has disassociated from anything that is worshipped other than Allah. And then when it comes to Moosa Allah, Allah, Allah gave him that Allah Fie, he who didn't one or he received the Torah, in it was light and guidance for the people to learn how to live according to its teachings, not just its teachings of tawheed, but its teachings of what's right and wrong, what to eat, what not to eat. And therefore,
when you and I we look at our Sharia, when our sisters were a job, they're not surprised to know that there are laws of hijab for Jewish women, for our cousins and faith. You know, when I when we when I talk about hijab in my classroom, we talk about HIA in year nine, in my in my class Islamic Studies class, I actually begin by getting them to write an essay about what is higher in the faith other than our faith. And all of a sudden, they're like, Oh, I didn't know that they have to wear a scarf that they have to wear, you know, leggings, that they can't show this part of their skin, this part
Their hair that many or many practicing Jewish women that actually wear a wig, that's their hijab. So you see, or you think it's her hair, but it's not her hair, it's actually a wig that they were. And that's their form of hijab. That's how they camouflage their natural beauty. And some of the most interesting writings is reading some of the writings of the rabbis debating is it right if she looks better with the wig than her normal hair? Right? Is it really high? Yeah, in that sense, right? So it you know, it's very interesting to see that many of our laws, our dietary laws, you and I have no problem eating kosher food on an airplane. Why? Because it meets the very same strict
standards that we have as Muslims, when it comes to halaal halaal dietary acts of eating and permissibility so therefore, you see, the Quran has those two things, the roots and the branches, and they are symbolized in Ibrahim and Musa symbolized in the meccan surah and the Medina surah. There are among the further classify the Quran into three sections. And they say that there is one third of the Koran which they take from this Hadith of the Prophet so I sell them, which is an authentic hadith he said that the one who recites last Allah who Allahu Ahad Surah Al f laws tanjirou fudosan. And it is equivalent to a third of the Quran what is meant by this hadith is that
it contains the message of a third of the Quran. One third of the verses of the Quran, if not more, tell you about who is Allah kulu Allahu Ahad Allahu La Ilaha Illa who and how are you? La Ilaha Illa ma Hua,
right? La ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah in the terminal colo Coleman call Malika, totally welcome and Tasha. Tasha lumen Tasha dia de Kalka Nicola coalition, Kadir Rahman Rahim al Maliki producer Salama Mohammed Al Aziz al Jabbar verses that tell you about who is allowed a third of the
another third of the Quran deals with the things you would not know if not from Allah. They talk to you about the Metallica about the day of judgement about agenda about and now about the prophets who came before us whose stories have been convoluted and corrupted. So all of a sudden, you begin to hear the inner message of what Jesus he said. He said, I'm actually sent, what he actually believed in comparison to what has been corrupted by the hands of men and the tongues that have defamed him. Allah has set up the third part of the whole iron talks about our tissue area, the rules and regulations way as
well as lucanus. They ask you, they ask you, they ask you answer to them about the things that they need to know in their life. And therefore you have rules about what we eat, what we drink, what we wear, what we don't wear, all of them take roots from the Koran.
In the Quran. Of course, there's also three messages and you know, the very elementary study of the Quran tells you that the Quran it seeks to prove three things. Allahumma budan bihac. The first is that Allah is the one you worship and it's the only reality it's the only truth that no one you should worship except Allah. That's the first message of the Quran. Second, and the Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rasuluh, that the Prophet is His Messenger. So you see a lot of talks about the prophets I send them showing why you should follow him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Third,
as well as the one who takes a lot in worship, and follows the way of the prophets I seldom yet who Nabeel mean, the ones who follow him what the reward is, and the ones who dis believe in him after knowing him, after understanding who he is. And after rejecting him and then rejecting His prophets, I send them what their punishment is, those are the three structural messages of the horror.
Within that are seven themes.
And those themes can be found they are assembled methodically, they are described in this in the in Surah Fatiha certainly some of them for him. He says, the essence of Islam is the Quran, if you want to what is Islam, it's the Quran and the entirety of the Quran is found in Surah Fatiha and the entirety of Sultan Fatiha is in the verse yaquina, Buddha can assign only you do we worship only you do we seek help. And that internal message it has those seven themes in it, which is first that the heat of Allah, that only Allah is worthy of worship the Koran
It speaks of a day of resurrection and a day of questioning. It speaks about Prophethood not just of our Prophet but of prophets who came before him. It gives us the cam the rulings and regulations of life. It speaks of reward and punishment, and it speaks about the rulings and regulations that relate to personal effects and law. Those
those seven themes of the Quran are intentional, in whatever surah you will find you will have one of them alluded to. Now, this takes us
Are you already 100 a da. I do realize that for many of you, this is the first time that you get a taste of how that kind of structure things as it relates to the forearm. And it's important that we set that
as a mechanism to kind of humble our reading because sometimes we pick up the Quran we say tabouleh can lady via the hill Maluku Allah cliche in cul de sac. I read the translation brother, I guess bless it is the Mashallah law, the study of the foreign law. It's something that is a wide ocean, and anything that you and I ever take from it is a drop, right drops from the hole and, and from the study of it. The Quran is grouped into seven sections.
And those sections after the gathering of the entirety of the arm.
When you see how the Quran has been put into those sections, see part of our belief as Muslims is that the prophets I send them before he passed away. The entirety of the Koran was dictated by him to scribes. It was scattered in different parchment. So there were more than 18 different Sahaba who would write down Makoto and during his lifestyle A lot of it was sent him from the malleus nebuta lemo, Arya, Abbey Sophia and many of them and the prophets I send them before his death. All of the Quran in its entirety was written down. But it was only collected during the time of Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Allahu Allah, and the Hadith. It's a long Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, many of the Sahaba came
to abac and after the Battle of leiomyoma, many her father were bartered. 70 would memorize the whole arm from the prophets I send them had passed away. And they said, Yeah, Khalifa rasulillah
we asked you to do something that wasn't done by the prophet to put it all in one volume katella Yogi Kitab Allah so that it is not scattered. Abu Bakr refused, he said, had shouted Allahu Sabri until Allah open my chest to accept for me to do something not done by the prophets. I said. So they said who would do it? They said, choose someone who is intelligent. Someone who is young, his memory is not faulty. someone loves them and maybe who lived closely with the profits. I sell them. Someone who used to write the plan at the time and the profits, I sell them and all eyes fell and they didn't have it. And abubakr also just came to him and said yes, I in Nicaragua, Levy,
Lana, tell him, you're a young man who's intelligent and has memorized the Quran welaka contactable, via Salalah Hi.
Fi hi Athena v. So I sell him used to write down the Koran and the life of the prophets, I tell them and no one has accused you of anything unjust or unrighteous.
And they said lo Moroni and uncoiler Jebel and mineralogy bad luck and when Allah if they asked me to move a mountain from one place to another, it would be easier than to gather the Quran. But because I was ordered Abu Bakr and Omar I had to, and it took him
an effort of, of moving a mountain to put it all in one volume. And that was given to a Baba close to this, and after his death, or the Allahu anhu, it was given to Roma. And after the death of Mr. Wen to have sort of the alohar boys daughter, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and with the Allahu anhu he took it from her, and he made copies from that Master Master set, the one who copied all seven copies was a miss added, he was the same person who copied it again. And every time that the Quran would be brought together, he would corroborate every verse with at least two of the five of the prophets I said Lem in its placement and its rank. So the Quran that we have together from its beginning to its end from its Elif to its Yah, from Alif Lam Meem until sort of the nuts everything intact in alfalfa to the end is the book of Allah, as was dictated by the prophet Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wasallam now what you notice is when the Prophet would say no put these verses after these verses, this was done by gibreel Ali Salam would tell him recite the Quran in this order. It's not recited chronologically, and therefore some people when they come to study the Quran, which is the first surah which is the last surah No, all of it came due to
foreign Muna Gemma it was revealed in different reasons different places for different times of the law had numerous rude who is one of the four people who the prophets I seldom said who then for annum in Alba as is narrated by the moment Bahati if you're going to study the Quran, take it from for people. And he began by naming Abdullah have numerous rules on the law one map of the life of numerous roads mastered the reading of the Quran. He said, though any animal rajala if I know of a man and a movie with a tablet,
that camels can reach him that I know that man knows more than me about the Koran, and my camel can take me to him I would go, but I doubt there is anyone for there isn't a verse that was revealed to him Tenzin
except I witnessed its revelation like I was there when the profit received as I sell them, or I was a part of it's a bit of it's teaching the profit first teaching it to people. Or I knew why and for who it was revealed about. Like even if I wasn't in the room, I know why that verse for what situation for what purpose it was revealed. I know the whole ad for the Allahu anhu Voila. So they organize the whole and in that process, according to the dictates in the teachings of the EBU Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now the there the seven groupings of the Koran, all of them will have one mechi and one Medina surah. And if you could just pay attention for a second
one meccan Surah At the very least, and one Medina surah and the meccan surah, which talks about the roots, its comparative branches will be in the Medina sutras. So for example, the first section of the Quran it's only one meccan surah What is it Al Fatiha and then it has a toward the longest sutras following it. The first group is Sultan Fatiha it's the only one and then after it which is this small surah. It has the four longest sutras of the Quran, Al Baqarah Ali Imran one Lisa will not either. And those four in comparison to Sultan Fatiha it's the balance between them and that shows you the importance of the Fatiha in our tradition. The message in the Fatiha is offset by the
rulings and regulations of those four schools. What you would receive in your knowledge of a law in that Surah Al Fatiha the seven verses, all of the rulings in the regulations that come in those schools that talk about sawtell Baccarat surah, Allah Emraan Surah Nisa surah Allah EDA is offset by that one surah.
If you look down to the bottom, we're concerned today with the seventh and final category,
which is the seventh section that the orlimar have grouped
of the Quran and it begins with our surah of study which we haven't begun yet will begin shortly in sha Allah, but it's important to introduce this study. So rotten milk, which is Surah number 67. In the Quran,
all of these two Jews, the last two Jews of the Quran, and that's why, you know, when your teacher says you have to memorize the last two Jews of the Quran, why does he choose those teachers? It's not because the the verses are shorter or smaller only. But because that's a group of the Quran and that's how you study the Quran. Then you go and you memorize another section of the Quran. There are groupings and the prophets, I send them when you analyze how we would lead people in prayer, he would lead only from certain sections in certain prayers. So if he was going to leave salata in Asia, he would read from the section of an amorphous solid. You wouldn't you wouldn't find him
reading from any place except from Surah facilite down to the end of the Koran. Those were the sections he would read. In Belgium, he would read from other places from Iran. He would read from the long sutras use of and others you would find that he would read from them. And that had a purpose behind it. There was a study for it sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the last two Jews of the Quran the last 40 pages of the Quran, from tabarrok Allah dbd mulk until the end of the Quran, only two of those suitors were revealed in El Medina. And those two sutras are the last two suitors have
pulled out Robin Farah and called arrow to be Robin Nash. And it's as if you know, these last two suitors they're left there in at the end of the forest.
That when you've read the Quran and you come to the end, it's as if you are pleading to Allah.
Oh Allah, you are the master of mankind melikyan as the King of manga Illa hyenas, you're the only one that mankind should worship.
It's as if you're petitioning Allah Subhana Allah to other to assist you in mind.
Let's begin with the virtue of sort of milk. And then we will continue in sha Allah. Thereafter, with a short Pegasus an explanation and study of the surah the manual that you have in front of you, is not written by me. And it's important that intellectually you know as Muslims and hamdulillah we have a history of intellectual honesty and some of the Imams of the law have been Mubarak if necessary in and others they would say very early on min Baraka till noon, several aliens era car, really, from the virtue of knowledge is that you establish who was the first one who said it? And therefore you always hear that when the Prophet is asked the question, he doesn't just answer a lot
tells them say,
I'm the one who's telling you so let them know that it's not from you that it's me, Who told you to say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore you see in you know, in verses in salt and bacara Allah subhanho wa Taala he says,
m&r rasuluh Viva de la la
wellmune couldn't learn em and a B la vermelha ekati. He workqueue to be here. Rosalie why in that structure, because a law sent an angel with a book to a messenger sallallahu wasallam. So there is a Baraka in the delivery of the Koran that is being given. Why is salted monk so important? It is a ninja. It is the Savior. It is the Protector. The alum as they call it and wackier the one that shields you you know the word taqwa it comes from that same root as you know a protection. A Heidi, you you will protect yourself with it. In where and in what in every condition in life. Many of the Hadith of the prophets I send them they speak about the afterlife. But you only receive the good of
something in the afterlife if it proceeded with good in the current life. And therefore many of the Imams when they analyze these Hadith which we will look at a few of them quickly in sha Allah, if you turn the page, now this booklet you have in front of you is from a website.
It's called verse by verse.com. And I recommend it to you in sha Allah. Not everything in it is perfect, as with any website, but it's a good place to study the verses of the Quran. Anytime you want a summary 1015 pages that tells you in English, what's the surah about what are its meanings? What are some of the things that are important, you can refer to it in sha Allah. Now because this menu is in front of you, I'm not going to be reading it through with you. So I have my own notes that we're going to be adding as I've introduced already, it's not a part of the notes that you had in front of you there in sha Allah, but turn to the second page where it says the virtues of salted
milk, many of the Hadith are listed there for you.
All of them in sha Allah or hassane or so here and the prophets I seldom said in the soul of 10 filco. And there's a chapter in the Quran.
Salah Athena, if it says if the Prophet saying Look how small it is, it's only 30 verses. It's not something you have to read a long time. It's only 30 verses the Sahaba at the time of the Prophet I tell them they used to count distance by verses. So if you say to someone, hey, how far is it he would say 60 verses
you know, you know you talk about how many minutes for them. It was a a year and he came to me and he said to me I
waited sodomy everywhere costly in comparison to the health of the prophet Isaiah 40 verses and if you walk it from there to there, I will you will I'm sorry. May Allah bless you with a visit to the Medina of the prophets. I send them his house was very close to the province. I tell them they would say Kenneth
Ellis last only news Paulo LA. He was Yeah, that's how close he was Hello. Is there Mashallah. But it shows you the frame of reference and how people used to think about the beauty of the Quran.
So, it's a verse, the Prophet saying it's a surah it's so small, it's so small. It's really, really easy to read. It's not something that will burden you. It's only 30 verses but look what it can do. This is the wording This is what the prophet is trying to instigate sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sheffy at it made shefa and a lot tells us in the Koran that the shefa only comes to the one he permits. 11 years
sha Allah, Allah said you're allowed to make without even the prophets. I seldom, you know some people, some of my students, they said, Sure, if you memorize the Quran, you're allowed seven people. I said, Yes, he goes, can you can I be on the list? I said, No. It's not my choice. But even if it was my choice, no, I have my wife and kids, my father, my my Will you he will go memorize your own Quran. He goes, okay? No, take you know, there's precedent, right? But law is for honor in law is sha Allah, Allah gives you that ability to make sure that even the prophets I send them he's not permitted to lie sell them to make you fat except until instructed by Allah. So Allah says this
person asked me for him Yeah, Mohammed Salah.
Because this is for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah only he knows what has happened when the Prophet was not there. And the prophets I seldom says what's the evidence for this that the Prophet doesn't just choose rice lm? The prophets I said Lim says in the authentic hadith
which is narrated by an Imam, Muslim, Imam Ahmed, the prophets iclm says,
On the day of judgment,
I will see people from my oma and there is a rewire similar to an Bahati
for you to own and me, but they will be pushed away from me for a Holy Mother, the angels who are pushing them away in the home enormity.
There might people I can see the mark of will do they prayed, I know them, they are my own man. But the angels will respond to me in Nikola Tesla, and that will mean baddeck Yeah, Mohammed, you don't know what they did after you left them, how they changed and perverted and added heresy to your deen. They're still from your oma. But they're not worthy of being near you in this way. Some of mahadi Watson. So that proves that the Prophet doesn't know what has happened after his oma after his death for the law reason. He doesn't know what that man did what that woman did. He knows us through our solar watch upon him, so I sell him and therefore when he sees it, he says, but this is
a person who loved me. This is a person who knows me. But the angels will say yes, but they did this. And because of that, Allah, Allah pushing them away from you, or Mohammed Salim until Allah allows them to come near you, until Allah allows you to make sure that for them, may Allah Subhana Allah give us the Shah of Iran abhi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this surah is given shefa and the prophets I send them says in the authentic hadith in Sahih, Muslim as well as for animal Absalom and Quran both mainship after a person, your fasting will say minute or two whole time I was shut up. I was chuffed with a bit now. I kept him away from food and eating and drinking
all day. And your coroner would say man i don't know maybe like or like kept him awake at night. For sure. Fair enough. He allowed me to make sure for him finish fine. So they will ask Allah can we make a vow? And Allah will say Yes, for sure. And then they will allow so so rotten milk is one of those sutras
Shafi actually sahibi her had, who fear Allah, it kept asking a law asking a law asking a law asking the Lord to forgive them, forgive him, until Allah forgave all of his sins. And that's all it is tabarrok and Lady via the headboard. That surah is tabarrok the 67th chapter of the Quran. In another beautiful Hadith the prophets I seldom said subrata and Phil Quran, there is a chapter in the Koran ha summit debated argued, stood in front and and pushed a case for an sahibi hat for the one who used to love it, read it, who it considered its companion look at the word Sahiba its companion, meaning it's someone who was it was always a part of their life every night in their
life. It consumed them and they recited it had to add color to gender not just forgave his sins, but now here we have another rewire that says until it would not leave him until he entered gender. So when every step of your life in your day, in your night, in your death in your club, in your grave, after your grave in your resurrection, in your punishment, may Allah protect us. Every step it was there hos about fighting on your back, let him out. Bring them forward. Oh ALLAH forgive him until it leaves you only when you have entered jedna and it is Tabarak and levy via the hilman. In another authentic rewire, it is deemed Hassan by Lima tirmidhi. The prophets I seldom said that this is a
this is a Surah 30 verses that the one who recites it every night, they will be protected from the punishment of the grave. In the rewire of Selma, she says I cannot remember a night that
andina VSI xlm where the Prophet had time in my home at night illawarra Tavakoli via the moon except I heard him read tabouleh kalindi via the moon from its beginning to its end sallallahu alayhi wasallam we're gonna take a pause in sha Allah from our discussion. And I ask Allah Subhana Allah to make our time a time of reward and sadhaka upon ourselves and families Allahumma amin, we continue now you know, we spoke a little bit about the virtues of salted milk, and some of them will become self evident as we continue. I don't want to just Chronicle you know, five or six different ideas, but I want to put it in the context of why the prophets I seldom speaks about the surah as being
powerful for the grave, why it's powerful on the Day of Judgment, why it intercedes for our forgiveness and why it intercedes and won't leave us until the evening lab, we enter agenda, and why it must be a nightly thing, why is it every day that it should be a part of your reading.
So to begin, let's look at the essential theme of the surah. And to establish that I you know, just a very small blurb there, the general theme of salted milk and sort of the milk you can translate that word you know, money to dominance or control. And it's as if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is saying to us, that you are not in control. I'm in control, look around you and feel what insignificance you are to the scheme of everything that is above you. And Allah subhanaw taala talks about set the SMR alpha seven heavens, you know, seven layered
places of creation, look around and see you. And at that time, the people of Porsche were a very arrogant proud people. They were a people who inessa to them lineage was very important, who your father was, who your mother was, what tribe you belong to, that was everything. And Allah in many places in the Quran, it says if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is saying to them, don't you know where you're from? And don't you know how insignificant you are in comparison to the nations before you and to the nations that will come after you? And before we begin, I want you just to ask a you know, to to answer a few questions. Who lived a more luxurious life?
You are Pharaoh.
Really? Like the contour tour? orthopedic mattress?
You sleep on every night? Did Pharaoh have something better than that? Did he have medical care? You know, Mashallah, we have a few dentists in the audience today. I'm normally at times scared to dentists, but they're good brothers. Mashallah.
Did he have better dental care or you?
Did he dress in better tailor? You know, I know he had a lot of gold. There's a lot of gold. But did he have the refinements? Could he turn on an air conditioning system?
Could you just click Ah, 23 degrees out when he pushed you know, a button? Would the water heater clicking and he could take a bath with? Did he have the sense that we have today? Did you have the variety of foods, the refrigeration systems that you and I had?
Did he have the military power that is found in one pistol?
You know, could you imagine if you walked in front of Pharaoh and he just said bang to one of his guards? Whoa
hoo hoo hoo has and see the frame of reference, of course. And that's what you know, the whole arm is about coherence. When you look at those in the past, and you see how arrogant they were. Yanni he's walking the earth as if there's no but you're gonna die and Allah saying to fit around, you're telling people that you're God, but you know, you know, inside yourself. You're not you're nothing. You know, you're not anything. Yeah, but you know, you're not anything. Yes, you own this man. You can, you know, omega you own Billa livanova. But what, what does that do for you? What, what is there for you, other than that dominance, hold on a second. I'm the most dominant, big hill monk,
I'm the one who old dominance is with him. And therefore the sort of theme is that it begins to allow you and I to understand the mysteries of the universe.
And that our Earth bound knowledge, what we can see and what we sense today what they could see incense in their time
leads us to understand that we must be in utter dependence upon the one who put everything in its place.
And therefore, you know, in this surah, you're going to hear verses where Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, does not the creator know what's best for the creation? Because Hold on a second, you don't know better than me. You're I'm telling you look around you come to understand who I am, what my significance is, in your life sucks. So let's begin the suit on chat law always whenever we begin a study of the Quran and we always begin with the other, which is to ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from the Shaitan and Allah Subhana. Allah says, the millions of undocumented shaytani nazwa aesthetic Villa as a general principle anytime you feel disturbed, and you feel that the shape
on has upset you or sorrow or whatever it is seek protection with a la mina shape on the regime from the occures shape on the one who you would stone you know regime model Joon Rajan in sha Allah when we go to Hajj, you pick up a stone and you throw it out. And that's what Ibrahim did. When the devil manifested, he picked up a stone, kept him away from him, threw it at him. This is Rajiv and this same statement will come in the surah that Allah uses this as an effect for the shale team.
Allah also says not now just in general but in particular in the Quran. quran quran festetics Billahi min ash shaytaan rajim when you come to recite the Quran, begin it by asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect you from luxury fun. The question begs itself Why does the Shave Club come when I'm reading the Koran? Yeah, I thought the show shaitan he likes bad things. No, the thing that attracts the shaitan most is you doing good things. And therefore Allah says that the shaitan declaration of war is law collodion netta home salata can muster theme, I'm going to sit on the straight path, not on the crooked path. So anytime you say Allahu Akbar first Allah, what do you say
first? How do we let him in the shape on the regime after his death? Why? Because the moment is Allahu Akbar. He comes not just to you but even to the best of us Mohammed's ally send them the prophets I send them did battle with a fleet. He says there's no reason for an Bahati the prophets. I said, Let me move back in a sada. Like he saw that visual manifestation of a shavon trying to disturb us Allah. And the Prophet said, I held him and also have I said they saw his right hand extend, and he grabbed something until it stayed still. And the Prophet said had it not been for the dua of Sulaiman. I would have killed it and put it for the children to practice their arrows at it.
Some ALLAH hafiz Hollywood some Suleiman's was that I get a mulk Liam Berry, Adam embody that I have this power over the shale team, that no one has it after me. It's not that the Prophet didn't have the power. But the prophet respected his brother, some aloha to send them because as a part of our understanding of the new love and abuse, I sell them, every miracle given to the profits preceding him was given to him as a power so I sell them without request. But because of his humanity, as I said to him, he would not use what he did not need some of the law he bought early, he was so happy to say
we then begin because it is the beginning of a surah we say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. And as a point as a side note, that automatically tell us it is not a necessity. Many of the unimat they say that the best meta it's only necessary in two places in the Koran.
And that is because it is the beginning of the Fatiha it is a surah of a sub l muthoni. So you say Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, in the Quran of some of the Quran, they make it a part of the Koran, and that seems to be the weaker opinion. And that's why you see when you open your Koran, it'll say Bismillah Rahim, but not in the same script as the Koran. It'll put it above it right it'll put it in a different place, so you don't get confused except Al Fatiha. And the second Surah is Surah named in the homing Suleiman when said that she received when the people have
been pleased to receive received the vs. received a letter from a man she read it out to them and she said in the human suit a man we're in now who Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim and therefore it was a constant tradition of the prophets of Allah. To begin with Allah best mela, whether it was Miss Mikela home or Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. The majority of opinion of course, is that it is praiseworthy. It is Mr. habermann Dube to recite the best mela but it is not considered
An idea from the Quran except in those two places, right? So you can begin your citation without saying it, although it is better to say it.
Mr. Michel for his opinion is different. He holds anytime you begin the citation of the Koran, even from the middle of a surah beginning of a surah doesn't matter where in Salah outside Sala ties you have been rossmiller and therefore, the Shafi imams when they read sola they'll say Allahu Akbar, they do their draw, and then they judge you how they say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. And they might say it also in the beginning of each and every citation of the hora. Allah says
And when I say a law says it is only the automobile.
It is only for an RV. And
the Quran is an Arabic Quran, listen and audibly it is with a language that is only an attribute. So anything that you see of transliteration, translation, anything that seeks to resemble it, other than the Arabic script. And the Arabic sound is not the Quran is not the word of Allah. It is the understanding of a man or a person at a time of what they think a lot said.
It is not the word of Allah. So when you read the translation blessing is he whose hand is the minion now, this isn't the word of Allah. When you say Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim Taobao I can let the big hint. That is the word of Allah, even if it is a grouping of letters that don't make up a word, and if I mean, it's not even a word. But Elif Lam meme is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the citation is scheduled, is taught to us by Allah. What do I mean the tree citation is scheduled. Is is the sound of the letters is not our choice. And in Arabi, every letter has a name, a sound to it. So elefun their own
own lamb meme. But when you come in, you know, if you were to give an Arabic Christian, you say Elephant, elephant lamb.
You know, it's not it's a journey. It's not a word that means something. Why don't we say elephant lamb on me, man.
Why do we say Alif? Lam Meem?
Who said it that way?
Who did we hear we as an oma here say that way? Mohammed Salah Eisen and therefore the Koran is tower cleave in its utterance it is stopped you can just invent your own grammar rules. You can just make your own Oh, I like this tune. Have you seen that YouTube video where they sing the chorus Singapore and with an orchestra La Villa. They have this
an orchestra and a guy with a violin and they're doing it attend courses now.
Why because Elif the sound of it is not my choice or your choice. It's spoken by who was heard by who the Sahaba from who Mohammed Salah
now the prophets I send them received the Quran in seven sounds
seven utterances. So if I read Sultan Fatiha I can read it
just infatti Hi.
How you doin muffled ob Allah him right here in Moscow be Allah home, right here in Moscow bi Li Moo, Walla
Walla Walla, Walla, Walla, de, all of them were written were spoken by the prophets on the La Jolla
and each of them was due to the pronounciation of the various groups that lived around at the Prophet license. Fact nandina mursaleen
we all like games game, Miss Jean you have Egyptians was a game the prophets I send them to intricacies in the language spoken by the people who surrounded him. And the or an came to reflect that understanding from them. So some of them the way that word would be pronounced a law reveals it in a way that they would understand it. So the law Hollywood seldom received the Quran Allah sent it off. There's a famous Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, Armando mahatama, you know, he's a tough guy, Mashallah. Or the Allahu Allah.
He came to pray.
And the person who's leading the class on us and fetch Cora l for con recited sawtell for con in a way that Rasulullah Selim didn't teach me.
Fetterman lecture and FC had that and he said I had to control myself until the end of the prayer. I almost took him in the middle of the prayer. How dare you read it in this way? So I held myself Solomonic. So he finished for fat Oh, I picked them up and took them to the prophets. I say cotulla
Rasool Allah, Allah O, Allah whorfin, in a letter in a sound different to the one who taught me, Prophet said, Lord, I'm going
to read to me hate and hate until I finished the same passage. wakad Allahu Allah, Allah, it was more I didn't even read. Right?
He said katha, Lika Uzi, Erica, in this way it was read was sent to me in this way it was sent to me.
Both of them, right? They have a different dialect different sound, right? And the meaning is always intact in the verses that are revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, there's a lot of complexity and intricacy.
Most of the none of the Tafseer that you read today, like FC replica here, was written with Clara toughsonic dakara, you and I mostly read is often often awesome. Most of the time, it wasn't for that color. It was for the color of Napa De Lima Mushaf. He the reason he says it's for him is because he used to be he used to follow the rewire of an kisai That's why he would read this for him, because he considered it a part of every soldier. Right? So it has those intricacies.
In its meanings, Allah Subhana Allah says, and therefore when I say that from now on until the end, it is for the Adobe and I say a lot means or what could be translated to are the translations or the Pegasus that we seek to do? Who can levy big hill Moo, hoo hoo, Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah for Allah, Allah Casa Martin dibaca matter of the Hulk rock, man even tougher with him Fallujah. elbasan Hello, Tara.
So Maria Alba, Soraka ruthenian, Khalid, la calabasa Rojas II and wahoo hasil
sama dounia de masabi, Howard jalna rejuven Disha team were added. Let others say
it's a powerful statement from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to begin this surah. And there are few suitors this one and then for con that begin with tabarrok. And the word Kabbalah is that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah extends for himself his blessedness and Allah affirms it for himself without you needing to do it. See, most people when they want to feel good about themselves, they want to hear it from others. But Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, if you worship Him, or if you don't worship Him, He is already without need of your worship. If you worship Him, it does not increase him. If you did not worship Him, it does not diminish him. Subhana Allah, if you give it to someone other
than him, he's not jealous of Hannah to Allah. Allah is not upset that people worship other than Him because He wants their worship. It's out of a need. Give me the attention law. Without anything, Allah is magical. And therefore on the Day of Judgment, the prophets I seldom said when everything ceases,
Allah will say, and He will answer, he will ask himself Leeman in Mongolia, to who is the kingdom today, to who is all of this today? Lila, Hilda alcohol, and only Allah will answer after the time that he permits only to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the dominant over all things as the origin. The word Baraka, which is part of this tabarrok Baraka it means, increase plentifulness access. And it means three particular things as it relates to us that what is confined can be made great. And what is missing can arrive from where you don't expect, and what you fear, its loss can be protected those three things. What is small
alarm makes it more useful than what is big.
And what is not with you a law brings it when you thought I could never have it. Where am I going to get this? Where would this come and our last sentence and what you have and you're afraid I don't want to lose this, I don't want this to disappear. A law guarantees it for you, so that it does not dissipate from your life. And therefore the source of all Baraka is only a lot and therefore there's this false understanding amongst the illiterate amongst us as Muslims who assume that something or someone can have Baraka in it just because of itself.
You will see this I put up this video on my Facebook page of some of our May Allah forgive them. Some of the brothers they bring knives, scissors, nails, things
To cut thread from Aqaba, they they are making tawaf. And then
you see this lady, this man ripping at the cloth of the cabinet, one of the people who said, Why do they always raise it up? I said, it's to show you that it's stone. It's stone. Yani it's rock, where the rock come from that mountain over there. It's not nothing special. They didn't bring special rock. There's only one rock that's special, that the prophets I said and told us is special. The only reason we acknowledge that rock is because the Prophet acknowledged it. So I sell him and we only acknowledge it in the way he acknowledged it. The prophets I sell and didn't come to the Blackstone, take his hat off, wipe it and take my hat. It has the Blackstone on it. Now,
you made a mistake, you should have touched it with your fingers. That's what the prophets I seldom did. And if you couldn't, your hat touched it, then your heart you kiss your heart. That's it. The prophet SAW Selim teaches us that it's not that all of a sudden something transfers to other things. You become holy in that way. Now, it's a rock. It's just building that the house of Allah, it is a place that's a marker. When you pray from here to there, you don't focus on it in your brain, you're not standing there and imagining the caliber of martial law.
Your thought is what you're reciting. And that's the heat. That's why I'm on Omaha top every time he did have he would stand in front of the Blackstone, Latif is in Mojave, as a Muslim excuse me, he would stand in front of the Blackstone, and he would raise his voice as loud as he can. And he would say, Allahu Allah in the Alamo and nakhodka Oh, by Allah, I know you are nothing but a stone.
And if I had not seen the prophets, I seldom kiss you. I would not kiss you because you're stuck. But because he did it, he knows better. So I will follow him someone lahardee who said he never kissed anywhere else. He never did anything else. Some Allahu alayhi wa earlier Sophia.
So the source of Baraka is a lot and a lot of puts Baraka in what he seeks, and it's transient, no one has Baraka just you know, all the time, except the prophets of Allah, even after their life, their remnants, and this is from the FM contains Baraka, almost Allah as Islam. So I had Buhari, she had some of the hair either of the beard or the head of the privatized lm and she was the one who shaved the head of the profits. I sell them on the day of today, BIA and it was ordered that it'd be distributed to the 1500 Sahaba some of the hair you know, one Sahabi the hair of the prophets, I seldom touched him when his hair turned gray, all of it except the places the hair of the prophets,
I sell them the touched. This is the Baraka, the prophets. I send them all of his hair turned gray except the place where the profits here had touched him. Some of the law he was selling, right? This is from the Baraka of rose wa sallam, only Selma, she had some hair of the prophets. I said that when someone got sick and they couldn't cure them with medicine, she would dip the hair of the prophet in the cup of zamzar, they would drink it, they will get better. This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is a conduit of the Baraka sent to him by Allah azza wa jal, those are also aflw insightful Buhari. tabarrok. Lady, big hill Monique in whose hand Allah alone is
all kingdom is all control is all dominance. And therefore, from the very first moment, a law is setting for you and I in this surah that no one has power, no one has authority, no one has control even in the things that they think they do, except a law.
Well, who had a coalition in Korea, and it is a loss of Hannah and went to Allah who was able to do all things. So the first lesson that we take, it can shift in sha Allah, we take, we're going to take 50 some odd lessons from this surah Angela today. The first lesson that we take is that you are limited in your creation by Allah subhanaw taala. You and I, as human beings were never meant to be from those who had utter power over ourselves or others. And if you are given wealth, you might lose health. And if you have health in children, you might lose. You might lose wealth. If you're given prosperity and safety and wealth, you might be depleted in happiness and contentment. You might have
a jealous heart You have everything around you, but you keep looking to others who are beneath you. Why do they have this and that and therefore this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and nilkamal Allahu Allah. No one is complete except him.
Everyone is limited but him soprano tan. Number two, the power of a law is beyond limit. Well who Allah could unleash a podium, and he is over everything. And this word shape means anything. But the one who made things is who
who's the one who made everything. So
Before they have become a thing Who is the one already in control because he's the one who made it. Either our other Shay and Eva or other amaranth, Buddha who con acun. Be and it becomes and it's only after the instruction of it to be that it becomes shame. And therefore when you hear a loss of Hannah to Allah say to you and I in the hole an
Allah forgives all sins, young Pharaoh Zulu, Jamia, Your sins are ashamed, your if your sins are a theme that you have brought into this life by the knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and therefore part of your hope is in the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that he uses his qudra, which is his Rama, the Imams they used to be those who would make this your art Some have said it's not your art that should be made. Other say it's your art that is made, if you understand it correctly, it's useful. Some would say our law, don't punish me.
Don't hold me accountable to my sins with your justice. Because if a law is going to be just with us, all of us are in trouble.
But deal with me with your exam with your mercy. And the other automatically said no, Allah is justice is his exam. It is qudra his ability is over everything. Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah is beyond limit because all limits were created by him and he is limitless subhana wa tada and from the things he has created is us. So you are a part of a laws, authority and power.
We take as another lesson, that Allah Subhana which Allah says
that he is not blessed from what he provides us and our blessings is not because we repay him for what he's given. You know, sometimes you expect people if you do good to them, you give something back. But Allah subhanho wa Taala gives and gives and gives, not because Okay, give me back in return law, his blessedness extends beyond that Subhana Allah to Allah, and he is without need in the next area of law says, I love the hunter called Mount will hire. And this is something that many of the commentators they spoke on, why did the law speak about his creation of death before life, when naturally you live, then you die, actually, it's a way of a law. It's a proverbial way of a law
saying to you, when you live your life, look to your death, because then you will see your true life.
A lot of saying to you, and I know that I'm powerful and everything and know that I've created you to die. So don't get attached to anything in this life too much. Because the first step in your life is in life, the first step of your life is actually death. That's your first place that you're going to meet me and let the Hanukkah mount well higher. Now Allah says that he created death, meaning death and non existence are not the same thing. You know, some people say well, before I was born, I was nothing so that was death lap. By Allah saying he created death, it means that a law there was non death, there was non existence but there was a creation of death. And that means that your death
is created. It's time is known to Allah.
He created for you the hour you will return to Him. Just like He created you the hour you were brought here, He created you the hour and the condition and the time that you would return to a loss of Hannah to Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala says Allah, Allah, Allah, MT will hire Leah blue,
x and Amara, that he has placed us here to test us Bella is a trial, a difficulty, a hardship, and therefore the nature of life has always been toiled.
If you descend, your Adam Allah says to Adam in the Quran, for Tasha, you will be in hardship. Because you're on Earth, you must be tested to meet the requirements of being given access to a higher one, the true life, the true existence in the next life. Leah blue, a youcam x anomala. Which of you is best in deeds. Now many people misunderstand this when you read it in English. It says
which of you is best indeed. It's as if you're competing with other people. Who are you competing with yourself, not just yourself as you are now but you're competing with yourself. You're better self and your worst self. inside me. There's a better yet Ibrahim. There's a person who prays better. Who's a better husband, a better father, a better teacher. There's a person
Who is better in their soul? And the competition is within myself to bring and to reach that level. Leah Blue accom au come from amongst you who have you will improve themselves to be the best of who they can be. And that was always the central message of the prophets of Allah. They always wanted you know, when you whenever you see the prophets I seldom transitioning someone from sin to good deeds. He always improved them in a way that kept them the same as who they are. That the prophets I said Lim says, the best of you in j helia are the best of you in Islam.
If you were the best trader, in your coffee days, in your nonpracticing days of man, if there was a very good tradesman, he was a very good trader, very good businessman before Islam, what did he become after Islam? Did he change his job? He became the best in his trading as a Muslim. And that's a very important concept. The prophets I send them never came to change anyone. He came to perfect. And here you hear the Hadith of the prophets I send them in number four is truly authentic. Tell me Mama caramel, insight Muslim, the Prophet says, I've been sent to perfect the mannerisms of people, the etiquettes they have not to change. So when the Prophet came to the people, he didn't say wipe
all this out. Let's start new. He said no, this thing drunkenness. Let's take it away. This thing rebar let's remove it. This thing this this, this thing about how you treat your your women, your wives your slave, remove these are the imperfections you have in your society. Salalah hottie who said,
well, who will azeez Allah for Allah ends this area by saying so the first one Allah refers to himself as a condition called the power, capable control dominance. In this one Allah says he is Aziz
and he is a fool. And the words for Aziz is mighty, unforgiving, mighty is a law saying, I am mighty enough to punish you. If I want to punish you, you can't escape. But I am forgiving to whoever I want, even those who might mistake that they have gone too far. They have hope with me Subhana Allah to Allah. And therefore the metaphor of a law is a central theme in the sutra you will hear him referred to himself as a fool, and that we should seek His mellifera often in this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala also shows that there is a purpose for his creation. So he tells us to look around us and let the Holocaust survivors about what
it is he alone, who created seven heavens to balca, layering them one atop of another. And you know, in the Arabic language in Egyptian even, you would say tabaka you know, it's a plate one on top of another because it's stackable. Now the word semer in Arabic means anything above you. That's the general meaning. So when Allah is saying semi word, it doesn't necessarily mean definable only seven. And it is from a DA in bellava to say Saba Saba that there's more than what you can appreciate, in Adobe, the word and the number 770 700. They all kind of mean the same thing. It's so much you can't count. When you say to someone, yeah, it would take 700 years to them living in the
desert. They're illiterate people don't 700 How do you count up to 700? Right? You say you have the 8777 months to go, oh, seven months? Wow. It's a far off place set that is about its creation that's unimaginable dibaca. And it's not just one, it's one on top of another. So there's seven on seven on seven. And it's you can't even envision it. This is the meaning sub the SMR. It's not like Daddy will ask the man mammal by law he and others they say it's not to confine it to a limitation of seven specific only some of the scholars of Tafseer they began to say Well listen, even if we try to look let's see what seven are being referred to.
