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

Do Muslims believe in angels?

00:00:04--> 00:00:06

Do Muslims believe in the Holy Books? Oh god.

00:00:07--> 00:00:14

There's another word I wanted in this thing. We didn't have it in there, but I'm gonna cover it anyway, which is the unbeliever?

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

onvia.

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

How many don't have a clue what's going on via

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

means profit.

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

The profits.

00:00:25--> 00:00:40

Actually Arabic is having two words for level, we'll come to that we'll get to that section. Now, before you can say anything, you have to have a reference in Islam, it is not permissible to come up with the concept of like we see some preachers do sometimes say,

00:00:41--> 00:01:13

this is what I get out of it. When I read this, this is what it means to me. And I feel like we just don't do that. That is that isn't Islam come and tell me about your feelings, or your dreams, or your hunches and notions and emotions. Oh, that's nice, you know, over here, use private enjoy that but don't come and try to preach that as a religion because it's not Islam. Slam is very clear. Everything is all there you don't need to go anywhere outside of the Koran in this one of the resource of the Bible Salaam.

00:01:14--> 00:01:27

So let us go now to the book of Allah subhanaw taala let's go through the Quran itself the recitation and recite it to see what it says about that. And what it talks about.

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

It's in Surah

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

chapter two sort of Baccarat

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

it's the next the last verse

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

when it talks about this suddenly

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

walk alone Amana ballet

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

or Milan

00:01:46--> 00:01:55

Walker to be what recently? Learn for cabana, a hug and mirror. Walk a live seminar. Why Santa? You Frank Rabbana.

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

Yes, was that pretty close?

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

But be exact.

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

In fact, you wouldn't have tolerated it if I even mispronounced one vowel true. Because every Muslim on the earth reads the Koran in the Arabic language. Exactly, exactly letter for letter the same way. One and a half billion Muslims 88% of whom are not Arab are still reciting the exact same Quran everywhere on earth. And today, we have more than 10 million more than 10 million who have totally memorized the entire book. It's the only book on earth that if we lost all the books on Earth, you could still bring it back exactly as it was. Because there are just too many people that know exactly.

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

There is no other religion on earth that has the original document.

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

And ours is preserved in the hearts and minds of all the Muslims and in some of them the whole thing.

00:02:57--> 00:03:13

And there's no Muslim at least that they don't know a few of the verses a few of the sores. Is that true? Let's just find out right here. We're in New Zealand, right? It's not an Arab country yet, right? Okay, let me find out. Is anybody in this room here? memorize the first chapter of the Quran?

00:03:16--> 00:03:31

Raise your hand up so that people can see it. Come on. Don't be so bashful. Whoa, okay. The first chapter the whole first chapter, which is Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim of Hungary lot of Delilah mean. And okay, now you know which one

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

I didn't mean Baccarat. That's the second chapter.

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

Yeah, you got that one. 286 vs.

00:03:43--> 00:04:27

Baccarat is the biggest of all of them. But if you can recite Baccarat, that's a good start on Ramadan. He had three nights on two and a half nights, right? Because we recite this benefit of our non Muslim guests. Now, we recite the whole entire Quran every year in the month of Ramadan. The whole thing we have reciters who stand and they recite the whole thing, one 30th every night for 30 nights. So amazing thing. Now I want to mention to you what I was saying from the Quran, when I talked about the verse is talking about the believers in alliances and they say we believe in the law and his angels and his books and his prophets. And we make no distinction between any of them.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Plus or Minus translation.

00:04:31--> 00:04:36

So now what do we believe about a lot? Let's start with that one. First thing is

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

Allahu Ahad is number one.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

The fair

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

call who Allahu

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

get to help me with this now.

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

What does that mean?

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Almost everybody will say one 100 you

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

One and it does it absolutely means one but it's not the word in Arabic for one you might say what I tell you Arabic is very powerful This is very powerful language we don't have in English we got one and that's it but in Arabic You can say why had it needs a lot of water but and why it is one

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

and Allah is why but he's also had

00:05:27--> 00:05:44

he's one and he's one of you said what but in Arabic makes sense because Whitehead is the number one and ahead is one which has doesn't have a two gonna come after it. It means uniquely one is cool, super cool.

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

If Allah forgive me for using that

00:05:49--> 00:06:17

I like it. I think he's fantastic. He tells us in the Quran when you want to describe below what to say because they were asking resource Aslam Prophet Muhammad at his time some people were bugging him well who is your God related to is he like relate to our lack oza or Almanac or you know, giving him a hard time? Who is your guide like brother to cousin to whatever, that's the genealogy thing they were trying to play with him. And that's when I said go say to them

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

called Who? Allahu Ahad

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

Allahu Samad them myriad while lamb you lad. Allah Nicola who Khufu one I had.

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

Now

00:06:33--> 00:06:45

again, Arabic is too strong. I'm going to hit I'm going to hit one word it's going to take a phrase watch this. say he is a law that unique will settle for unique. say he is a law.

00:06:46--> 00:07:05

He is unique. He is here we go. Some are ready. The one who through all eternity does not depend on his creation but the creation through all eternity is depending on him. He doesn't need it. But they and it need him

00:07:06--> 00:07:07

somehow

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

going to translate it is too powerful.

00:07:14--> 00:07:23

Yeah, maybe I missed some of it. You may need some more. But this is giving you an idea what this word somebody that's one of his names a stomach.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

Then it continues lamb now what's lamb mean?

00:07:30--> 00:08:10

No way, Jose. That's modern English translation. Translate give the kids a way they can understand. Lamb. No way, man. This helps us to get the feel for lamb. It's a very powerful negation. Lamb. Yeah, Elliot. While lamb EULA. He doesn't get noisy, be gotten. He doesn't have offspring. He doesn't have genealogy. He doesn't come as a product of any genealogy. He has no father. He has no mother. He has no daughters. He has no sons has no brothers, sisters, uncles, grandfathers, you get the idea.

00:08:12--> 00:08:30

Why? Keep reading? Because and he says well, lamb yaku Allahu COVID, Khufu one ad. And there is never anything like on to him. You can't compare him to anything. Because why he's had.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

And when something is a hat, you don't have anything to compare two

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

copies.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

Cool, man.

00:08:39--> 00:08:52

When you understand that, then you're easy. It's easier for you to understand another verse of the Quran which says, laser cometh Lee Shane wahoo, Semyon Basir.

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

There isn't anything that compares to a law. There isn't anything that you can compare to a law nothing.

00:09:03--> 00:09:19

Then he uses two words, to make sure how you understand it. He is all hearing. He didn't. He didn't say he. He can hear. He didn't say he has ears. He said he's all hearing. And he's all seen

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

Semyon buzzer Yeah.

00:09:24--> 00:09:24

Now,

00:09:25--> 00:09:30

do you think you're all hearing? Yeah, you hear everything that's going on in here? Don't you? Don't you

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

know, not even close.

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

Dogs can hear sounds we don't hear it and that true?

00:09:39--> 00:09:43

roosters, they hear sounds that we don't hear. That's true.

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

Many animals hear pitches far above or below what we're able to hear. We are not all hearing. They also are not all hearing. But not only are we talking about the range Allah is hearing

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

Everything in the universe simultaneously all the time.

00:10:07--> 00:10:24

So the answer to the stupid question philosophers like to ask if there's a tree in a desert island that falls over your that still make a noise if there's nobody there to hear it if you're that stupid question before. These are people have nothing to do but drink coffee and think too much.

00:10:25--> 00:10:31

It's serious. For us. It's easy. Yes, the answer is yes. Because the last hearing is everywhere.

00:10:32--> 00:10:49

Ah, okay. And seeing, you say, well, we see everything that is so bogus. We only see like this. We don't even see half. We don't, because our eyes don't handle that. And when we turn,

00:10:51--> 00:11:13

ah, now I see everything. Wait a minute, but I can't see you guys anymore. So you don't even have that dewy. And that's just what, what's the range that we can see across. If you look out maybe 15 miles, something like that tops stand up at a hotel where I'm at, you can see those windmill things turning up there. That is cool. You guys get cool stuff here. I like to look at that. But anyway,

00:11:15--> 00:11:21

a loss sight is that he sees everything simultaneously, again, all over the whole universe.

00:11:22--> 00:11:48

But not only that, he sees the microscopic stuff that we can't even figure out what a microscope. He's watching all that all the time he knows where everything is, of course that goes to another one of his characteristics was he's all knowing. Before I leave the subject about Allah, I would like to mention this something else though. As much as we know Allah is with us in His sight. He sees everything

00:11:49--> 00:12:22

with us, in his hearing with us in His compassion and with us with His love. He says it in the ground. He's Allah dude, we're sure that he's all loving. At the same time, we never say allies in the creation will never say this, because this is what shark you just compared him to the creation. The never say allows everywhere you say his site. You say his hearing, you say his compassion. All of this is everywhere. But if you say Allah is everywhere, in the creation, what would you say? He becomes the creation? I will.

00:12:23--> 00:12:50

This is a mistake that people have been making for a lot of years. But when they love our guidance, we know this is wrong. Therefore, we would say immediately if somebody said, Oh, so Mohammed had Allah in him, and he was going to do when I was with a staffer, what are you saying Shut up. But don't say this will not say that. We don't make Muhammad as a god, a son of a god. We don't even make him to be an angel. We make him to be a human being who is very good,

00:12:51--> 00:13:05

a very good human being, but still a human being. Who was born, who died, peace be upon him? Who ate food? Who went to the bathroom, like human beings? Do we know that?

00:13:07--> 00:13:21

Now you might say, Well, why are you making a big deal out of it? By the way, not all religions understand that concept. Some religions have the idea of somebody comes from God to give a good message, he must be God, or part of God. Or they mix it up like that.

00:13:23--> 00:13:40

We find in the previous scripture, even in the English translation reference to God being one. In fact, you have to worship him as one, without any partners. If you make any Gods beside God, you break the first set of commandments, and there's no sense even looking at the rest of them, because you blew it.

00:13:41--> 00:14:03

The quote from Exodus says chapter 20, you'll find it there. And the Lord your God brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of bondage, you know, no other God beside me. And then the first Roman numeral one shows up there. In the Gideon translation you look at it says, Thou shalt not have any other gods beside me. But you are,

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

how many one?

00:14:06--> 00:14:42

And then in the New Testament, we find the same thing again, in Mark chapter 12, verse 29, they asked Jesus what is the greatest commandment? He said that the greatest commandment is this to know Israel, the Lord your God is one God. One Lord said one Lord, and you have to worship him or love him with all your mind and all your strength and all your heart, or your mind, your strength, your heart like this, if you don't do that, then you haven't completed it. And this is what we know as Muslims the same way. It's not something new.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

Now we'll go to the first of the ones mentioned in the brochure, covenant malayaka angels malayaka. Do Muslims believe in malayaka? Absolutely. Allah created the angels before he created human beings

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

He created the angels and the angels are made from what

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

newer mera light.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

That's why you don't see them Did you know you can't see light?

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

How many of you didn't know that

00:15:13--> 00:15:15

you cannot see light,

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

you can only see what light reflects off of

00:15:20--> 00:15:32

light travels through space and it looks like darkness doesn't it? Space looks like darkness until the light hits something, then you can see it. So that's why you don't see angels they're made from light.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

Now, that's a concept discussed 1400 years ago in Islam, that was only in the last few 100 years that the West come to understand that about light.

00:15:43--> 00:15:59

But you don't see the angels, unless Allah makes them appear to you. In such case, though there will be some reflection office something where that angels can be seen, because some of the companions of Muhammad did see the angel in his wife did.

00:16:00--> 00:16:24

I believe on one occasion, briefly. So the point that we're trying to say is we believe very much in them, to the extent that it's not optional. It isn't optional for Muslims. To say that, well, I want to believe part of this, but I don't believe in all of it. In fact, we know the names of some of those angels. But Allah has created millions and millions and millions of angels to do jobs that he has them do all the time.

00:16:26--> 00:16:35

The arch Angel, the biggest, greatest angel with the biggest position with a law, his name jabril.

00:16:36--> 00:17:04

That's his name, Gabriel, his title, a lot of calls in the room, could this will produce translate will produce to the English language in you have Holy Spirit. Exactly. She really is the Holy Spirit. And by the way, that solves a problem for a lot of Christians who try to figure out why in one part of the Bible, it says real clear that the Holy Spirit came.

00:17:06--> 00:17:33

The Holy Spirit came to tell that Jesus was going to be born of a virgin. And then another gospel says that Gabriel Cain, the angel Gabriel came, how does that work? Oh, one just mentioned him by his title. Other one mentioned him by his name. That's not a contradiction in the Bible. That's just people didn't understand. But you go to the crown, you can find it and it's really easy. Right there. And by the way, that Arabic Bible says reproduce.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

That's jabril Seidel, look at the Quran,

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

help you understand a lot.

00:17:41--> 00:17:50

And by the way, we don't accept that, that he is part of a trinity with God either. That doesn't work. He works for God, no doubt.

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

But he's not on the board of directors.

00:17:54--> 00:18:10

What else we believe about angels? Well, there is an angel of death. And that's the one that all of us will see eventually. But at that point, it's too late. So I pray Allah guide all of us before that happens. I mean,

00:18:12--> 00:18:25

there are other angels, Miguel, called Michael in English, they mispronounce it calling Michael Mickey L. If you know anybody named Mike or Michael comes from the Hebrew word, actually, Miguel.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

What angels do?

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

They do? Whatever Allah orders him to do.

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

They never fail in their duty to obey Allah, regardless of what he tells him to do they do it.

00:18:40--> 00:18:44

Which now gives the question and I just saw it.

00:18:45--> 00:19:04

Just saw it in Jehovah's Witness pamphlet that they give out. They left it in, in a Muslim restaurant, they left their thing there last night. I'm sure they were trying to do something good. But I picked it up and I looked at it and it said right in there, that he believes the Lucifer the devil used to be an angel.

00:19:06--> 00:19:19

And they went on to explain how he decided one day he didn't want to be an angel anymore, and bla bla bla bla bla and I'm looking back on stuff Rami has said, Look in the Quran and you'll see what the problem was.

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

The devil exists. There's no doubt about it, but he never was an angel.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

And he sure didn't one now

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

and he's not in a fight with the law.

00:19:31--> 00:19:47

That's a big mistake to think like that. Because if somebody could fight with a law that allows a good partner, at least in in weight, or in power, and a lot number shares his power within you think about how the wala quwata illa. There isn't any mind or power, except the power.

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

So where do the beliefs come from?

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

Again, we're looking at Ron chapter 72. You find the whole thing. It's right there. It's called circle gin.

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

They do.

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

gin, the gin are what they are also a creation of Allah that were created after the angels but before human beings, and they're made from what? You still can't see them. They're made from a fire without smoke. And the only way you can see fire, it has to have something to reflect off of just like light does. And if there's no smoking and see it, but you feel it. That's why when people get angry, they say they're what nobody ever said, I'm so mad, I'm cold.

00:20:33--> 00:20:42

We say we got hot, man, I was hot. Man, that guy makes me happy every time I get, you know, the feeling you have been angry? Did you feel horrible?

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

Be honest.

00:20:45--> 00:20:53

And that's where it comes from. Because this is the devil right on you. And that is the feeling you really get from him. All the love

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

the difference between angels in the gene,

00:20:58--> 00:21:44

the gene have free choice. Just like we do free choice, they can do what they want to do. A lot gives them tests all the time, just like it does us here, do this. But you don't have to Don't do this. But I'll let you. And then you have to pay for what you do. If that makes sense. That's how it works. And this is going on for a long time, with the beliefs. And at one point, he was really worshipping God a lot, so much so that he worship God, when the sun just came up in the morning just came up and it was nice, big round ball right there. And then when it was straight overhead, and then it was just around ball about to disappear. on the horizon is the times when he used to pray.

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

Today Muslims are forbidden to pray at those times. And that's why that's mentioned by the prophet sosna. We pray five times. He used to pray three, but we never pray at those particular times. You have to wait. It's only about 1015 minute wait, the rest of the day you can pray.

00:22:02--> 00:22:18

But now let us come back to this subject of the jinn for just a minute before we leave it. Because he believes was elevated high in rank that he was praying along with the angels. He was with them Yes, because Allah elevated him.

00:22:19--> 00:22:26

And Allah knew what he was going to do but still elevated him up because as long as he was doing good, he was elevating him up.

00:22:28--> 00:22:43

And he had done many things, good things, powerful things that Allah gave him the ability to do. Especially insisting on being away from those jinn who didn't worship Allah. He wanted to worship Allah, that wasn't this problem.

00:22:45--> 00:23:00

But then came this statement of a law, which is that I have now made the best of my creations. The head of Halak ml in Santa Fe, a standard that he created the human being in the best of the best of the best shape or form or molds.

00:23:03--> 00:23:14

And then Allah said to all creation, bow down, make such the bow down, prostrate bow down, because I've made my best creation

00:23:15--> 00:23:23

and all creation bowed down Illa he believes except for Lucifer the devil himself. He refused because of what

00:23:25--> 00:23:48

because he said there's no way that Adam is better than I am. I'm made from smokeless fire that's his quote, go read it in the Quran I made from smoke this fire but him you made from this, this sounding play team, this dirt this you know, disgusting fluid. I'm not gonna do it. Why and then average called giver,

00:23:49--> 00:24:10

giver from the same root kabara. And only Allah is at the bar. Therefore you see the problem. He was making shirk, blasphemy. Because he put himself in the position of God Himself. When Allah gives you a command and you refuse to obey, and you know, it's a command, and you do it out of your pride. There, you're in trouble.

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

What's the expression, they say in English, Pride goeth before the fall.

00:24:18--> 00:24:40

So that's the problem with the police. And by the way, his statement in the Quran is very clear. They attention because the police said something and we know what he said. He said to God, because Allah said, you know, you're gonna go to hell, right? He said, I don't care. Just let me take him meaning Adam, and all of his offspring with me to hell.

00:24:42--> 00:24:58

He says, I'm going to show you how much they're going to, you know, dishonor you they're not going to live up to what you think. Watch me. Now this reference you can find in the Bible as well in the book of Job. It talks about this subject.

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

The devil was

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Really, really upset. But it doesn't explain that the detail that I'm telling you here but you can find it in the Koran and you can understand your bag bill a lot better to take these verses, read them and help you that's what helped me a lot.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

Yeah the next subject.

00:25:16--> 00:26:04

The books, the books in Arabic actually are called so hoof. hoof means scripture. All scripture came from Almighty Allah, talking about original scripture, which comes to prophets is only from Allah. And that scripture is called revelation or why he and it's sent down from Allah, through his angel to the prophets. This is what Abraham had. And this is what Moses had and the proof is in the Quran. So hufa Ibrahima wa Moosa surah. Allah, Allah, Allah Subhan, his marimekko Allah, that's the end of it, he tells you that those scriptures are with Abraham and Moses.

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

So that's how we know. And

00:26:09--> 00:26:19

all of it is perfect. All scripture was perfect, as long as it is what in the original language and reciting in its entirety.

00:26:20--> 00:27:04

By recitation and case you didn't know this. This is the way the children of Israel preserved their scripture by recitation. Same way. They used to recite it, and teach it and recite it and teach it. Some of their scribes used to write it, and they would dig it up every so many years and have celebration Jubilee, and they would take it out, and then they would recite, and someone to hold the book on them, to be sure they hadn't deviated and that was a big celebration they used to have. It wasn't until the Babylonian exile that they lost all of it. You can read that in the Bible. It says that during the Babylonian exile, they lost the Ark of the Covenant containing the scriptures.

00:27:06--> 00:27:30

Then, in Babylon, they had some problems and breakdown between the different tribes. And then Ezra came along and tried to reconstruct the Bible based on what he heard from them. And this is documented in a book called who wrote the Bible, by Richard Elliot Friedman, a revelation for us as Muslims. The revelation as I've already kind of outlined to you came to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

when he was 40 years old,

00:27:34--> 00:27:59

came in the month of Ramadan on the night of power, which is toward the very end of the month, inshallah Allah knows best. And it says in the Quran, that it was sent down on zona houfy Laila to Qatar, sent down on the night of power and what will convey unto you what the night of power is, it is a night we're in is better for you.

00:28:00--> 00:28:06

And 1000 months, what a beautiful statement, this is something we look for in every Ramadan.

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

So

00:28:10--> 00:28:19

this revelation when it came came a little bit here a little bit there, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, did you get the whole thing in one night.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

In fact, he never recited the whole thing in one night.

00:28:26--> 00:28:51

The most that anybody could do the most and I'm talking about if you just recite, recite, it takes me probably three days to go through the whole thing. But he used to recite as it came and when verses would come, the angel would show him where to put those verses, put this in here, put this over here, say it this way, now do it this way. And the Quran would change according to the construction, the way that it will come with the angel.

00:28:52--> 00:28:57

Muhammad peace be upon him had nothing to do with the order of it, or what was said it was from a law.

00:29:00--> 00:29:12

It may be hard for some people to grasp that today, when we consider other religions and their books. But you have to remember what I started with. I said Quran is not a book.

00:29:13--> 00:29:24

It's from a book, feel Hema fools from the book that's with a law. And you can't play with it because it's recitation. That's what I had reference to earlier.

00:29:27--> 00:29:42

In the Old Testament, in the book of Isaiah, chapter 40, it outlines a story of someone who will be in a desert sweat, it says someone in the desert and he's going to be ordered to cry,

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

cry, and he will say what shall I cry?

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

Okay, that was how they translated it to English. But let me help you and we'll go back and look at some of the older manuscripts, and then consider what Allah said in the Quran ikura

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

proclaim ikura recite

00:30:05--> 00:30:05

ikura

00:30:07--> 00:30:17

this Arabic Allah de Holla Holla ko in Santa min Allah, recite in the name of your Lord who created the human being from an Allah.

00:30:18--> 00:31:01

Now we come to another part of revelation in Islam. We have scientific evidence today to confirm what came in the Koran 1400 years ago is still valid today, to the extent that many of the things they just discovered in the last couple of decades. Dr. Keith Moore, the top embryologist from Canada, Toronto, Canada, when was exposed to this in the late 1980s said and we have an on videotape. You can see it for yourself. He said there's no way anybody living at the time of Mohammed Salaam could have come up with something like this. He said this has to be from God or Allah. In his work. Dr. Keith Moore talks about the trimesters mentioned in the Quran. Again, that's

00:31:01--> 00:31:18

something new, but 1400 years ago that was there, this shape of the human being exactly at the point of conception. Nobody can see that without a microscope was described in the Quran, going in shape and out of shape, like a chewed lump Madeira, as I got

00:31:19--> 00:31:26

mentioning in the Quran, the development and the fact that the hearing comes before the site.

00:31:28--> 00:31:36

How would you know that? But they know it today. Hearing comes before sight and the development of the fetus.

00:31:37--> 00:31:37

womb.

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

Where you can see in a womb. uterus doesn't sound like it This sounds you know, sorry, but

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

what is it called narrabeen

00:31:51--> 00:31:54

ra hum the plural or hum

00:31:56--> 00:32:11

that's what it says ROM. Now, if you don't know Arabic, you didn't catch that. Because it's from the same word as the last name, or ramen or when you were conceived inside the mercy place. The place of mercy within your mother. Isn't that beautiful?

00:32:12--> 00:32:23

You're in mercy until you're born. That's Islamic teaching, by the way. And it's not just from the phrase, it's the reality because the Prophet peace be upon he said that every child is born.

00:32:24--> 00:32:39

As What? as what on the fitrah of alisma in the natural inclination to be submitting and obeying God in peace, which means what? Islam regardless of the parent,

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

doesn't matter the religion to the parent.

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

It's not Islam says the child is in the right way with the law.

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

And if the child dies, he goes immediately to paradise. No problems. babies die. You don't go to the mother of a baby and say, Sorry, but what religion are you? Your kid went to hell?

00:33:02--> 00:33:19

Oh, not bad. Have I lost my good you're gonna say something like that. Or something. If you're XYZ religion and somebody else's ABC religion and you ask their clergy, well, what about my kid? Well, one in our religion, gone to hell.

00:33:21--> 00:33:21

Not funny.

00:33:23--> 00:33:26

Some women have nervous breakdown worrying about their babies.

00:33:27--> 00:34:15

you slam you don't have anything to worry about. Because Islam teaches Not only did your child go to Paradise, your child is asking a lot asking Allah asking Allah bring my mother to me, bring my parents to me, bring my parents to me Look at this. The nice. This helps to reconcile the mother to realize the mother is being actually coaxed into paradise by their child. And the child is in good hands with the law. Islam teaches that babies are born in innocence. That's common sense. But then what happens in practice are some said they will be raised by the parents to become the religion of the parents, whatever it might be. But in some cases, it's not over, in some cases alone will revert

00:34:15--> 00:34:28

them back to that original condition. That's why we don't call people who come to Islam converts. We call them reverts, because they come back to the natural feature of Islam.

00:34:29--> 00:34:40

There was recently in the last so many years, a debate, which said is the Bible the Word of God, a Muslim, and a Christian started debating this thing.

00:34:41--> 00:34:47

I know who the Christian is very well. He said, I'm not expert on by not a scholar.

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

But that's not my point.

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

I'm not a Christian anymore. I don't care about it.

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

But I do care about the Muslim

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

who's arguing against the Bible.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

That is really dumb.

00:35:04--> 00:35:29

This is the golden opportunity to open the door instead of slamming it. This is a great chance to put forth what we really believe. Instead of cutting everybody off and throwing them off the bridge as well, everybody has tried to get them, we come across the bridge of the bridge of understanding, you start throwing people out in the water. Why? Because when you say anything against the Bible, even though I know he was talking about the English translation, that's not the way to go.

00:35:30--> 00:35:47

Are there things in the Bible today? that we as Muslims know to be absolutely true? Yes or no? Absolutely. So then if you said it wasn't the Word of God, what did you just say? You negated that? That said, you have to believe in what came before.

00:35:49--> 00:36:01

So it's not for us ever to say anything bad against the Bible. If somebody wants you to believe in the Bible in English, you say, not until I believe in the Quran in English.

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

We said the Quran in the original language, you know,

00:36:07--> 00:36:18

the Quran are named. Loving. That's not wrong, man. I'm sorry. That's translation of meaning, maybe, but it's going to be weak. How many words that I just proved to you we don't have right yet.

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

And I'm not the expert.

00:36:23--> 00:36:35

Just imagine. So no, we're not going to accept the English translation of the Bible of manuscripts that they don't even know where they got him. But we're not going to insulted either because there are statements in there that we absolutely believe.

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

And by the way, you get a whole lot more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.

00:36:43--> 00:36:43

Yes or no.

00:36:45--> 00:36:49

And we're together Christians, and Muslims.

00:36:50--> 00:37:00

About half the world's population. Why don't we see how we can sit together and agree on what we can agree on? And then what we don't agree on them believe what they want to believe.

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

What about that idea?

00:37:04--> 00:37:25

They're still what we're aren't we brothers and sisters? We all came from home, Adam and Eve Yes or no? Life told us about that. And grant sort of has run chapter 49 is very clear. He said very clear. He brought us all from one pair, which is Adam and Eve. And from them he brought forth many tribes and nations and made us different so that we would What?

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

recognize each other.

00:37:31--> 00:37:31

Ouch.

00:37:33--> 00:38:20

shaitaan is playing games today just like he did back then. And it's an order in the Quran. To not argue, but actually present with each other in a nice way. in a way that's better. This is what we've been ordered to do. The Last Days in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala. God Almighty refers to the last days. There's a lot of reference to the last days in the last part of the Quran. Coincidentally, throughout the Quran, you find reference to it. But the last part you find sure is are chapters dealing exclusively with with things that are going to be happening in the last days of Korea. makaya mama drama Korea. That's scary when you start thinking of what he's saying there about

00:38:20--> 00:38:50

this, this camping or stampeding. And when he says about the earthquakes in those little village or those Zola ha, what about that when the earth is shaking with its final earthquakes? So many earthquakes are coming in the province has some thoughts about earthquakes. But Mohammed says Salaam peace be upon him told us about people being hit with lightning, you will become so common that people might even say to you, anybody from your family been hit with lightning lately?

00:38:52--> 00:39:10

Who from your family recently got hit in the head? Well, you know, that's gonna happen and it is getting more common. But the process I'm predicted that lightning he also predicted that in the desert Now remember, he's making a prediction 1400 years ago about a people

00:39:11--> 00:39:28

who didn't even have buildings. They're called nomads in English, they call them Bedouin and Arabic. He said when the Bedouin the nomads, the tent dwellers are building huge skyscrapers competing to see who can make theirs the highest.

00:39:30--> 00:39:32

Anybody heard about a place called the mom.

00:39:33--> 00:39:39

Jeddah now Mecca, Medina, Riyadh.

00:39:40--> 00:39:45

Anybody been there? I was there a few months ago again and every time I go is

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

the last one I saw a mecca Mecca 77 storeys tall. And I'm looking at going wow, last time I was here you had this one that was the biggest one now it looks like a dwarf. So these are some

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

The other things that we found about the last days,

00:40:04--> 00:40:13

I'm going to end it now with just one more little Hadeeth, about this part of a huge Hadeeth. Actually, the province last month told us in the last days

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

about a digital digital issue, false Christ, the false Christ will come, he'll be one I have a ball by that looks like a great.

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

And he will tell people he is Jesus, the Messiah.

00:40:33--> 00:40:41

And the people many people will believe in. And what he will show to be held will actually be paradise and what he was showing me paradise will be held.

00:40:42--> 00:40:49

And anybody who goes to his paradise will be going to hell. But whoever goes to his hell will be going to paradise.

00:40:50--> 00:41:14

And he will cause huge fitna, and there's no way to describe fitna in English, but it's a horrible thing that he will blow people's minds away. Another sign last days when Jesus piece of your funding does come back, the first thing he's going to do is kill that one. First thing he will do is kill the false Christ. He'll be going, that'll be the end of him. And many people from the Jews,

00:41:15--> 00:41:27

from the Christians from the Muslims will recognize Jesus, and they will go to him from all people is not any exclusive thing. It will be whoever wants to believe they can believe.

00:41:29--> 00:41:49

And then there will be a victory for the believers over disbelief. And this will be good for a while there'll be real nice peace on the earth for a while. Then when Jesus dies, all his followers will die at the same time. Then after that, there won't be any chance for anybody to come to the right way anymore. It'll be too late.

00:41:50--> 00:41:56

And no earth will then become very corrupted with the worst of the worst people and then allow will destroy all of it.

00:41:58--> 00:41:58

All of it.

00:42:00--> 00:42:06

And then he will have the resurrection and bringing people back and then the day of judgment will begin
