Is God Something That We Made Up! Ali Dawah Vs Atheist Couple | Speakers Corner

If we have an infinite amount of dependent things, we’ll have the fallacy of infinite regress meaning, we need a necessary being for everything to make sense. Now, this necessary being which has to be independent; we need an independent being in order for us to be alive. That makes sense.

For nothing comes nothing, right? Therefore, something has to cause us, which we call God in a nutshell.

Evolution talked about, for example, the first cell, the first cell, where did that come from? Even if you go evolution, Evolution is not random events happening. There’s an order, there’s things happening. So for example, our point is the first cell that was made, where did the first cell come from, which was my argument?

 

Why Allah Will Judge Them First And NoThe Fragrance Of Jannah For Them | Sheikh Abdul Basir

Allah (swt) created us and Allah (swt) gave us duties. Allah (swt) Then He told us to be mindful of the duties He has given to us.

One of the important things that Allah (swt) told us after He gave us this life, after He created us to be knowledgeable, to be knowledgeable, to get the knowledge, to acquire the knowledge, to get engaged with the knowledge, to be among the knowledgeable people.

However, the scholars (Rah), they said; the greatest favor of Allah (swt), which you are experiencing in your life is acquiring the knowledge, achieving the knowledge, being knowledgeable.

Why are you trying to get the knowledge? Why are you going to school or College or why are you going to the University? To get the knowledge, Of course. But for Muslim, it is beyond that.

Why? Rasulullah (pbuh) told us that your intention for you to get the knowledge should be only for the sake of Allah (swt).

Rasulullah (Pbuh) told us that if someone is only concerned about getting the Dunya, and not concerned about the pleasure of Allah (swt) By acquiring the knowledge, in the day of judgment, that person, he or she will not smell the fragrance of Jannah.

Rasulallah (pbuh) told us in the Day of Judgment, the first people who will be judged by Allah (swt), are those who claim in the world, I was or I am knowledgeable.

If you think or if you claim that I am knowledgeable, in the Day of Judgment, Allah (swt) will judge you before everyone else.

Allah will ask him, why did you learn? And why did you teach people? So that person will proudly say Ya Allah, for Your sake, as Allah will say, you are a liar. You’ve done it for the people to tell you that you are knowledgeable.

So if this is the case, we have to purify our intention.

Sometimes we are deep too into the knowledge that we forget Allah (swt). Rasulullah (Pbuh) told us to be concerned about religion, to be concerned about the duties of Allah (swt) has given to us;

Rasulullah (pbuh) advised us to get the manners before you get the education.

That Metaphysical World You And I Believe In! Hashim Vs Superman | Speakers Corner

The gentlemen, He wanted to discuss about certain things in religion. I asked him, do you believe in God? And he says maybe, maybe not. He wasn’t sure whether he even exists. And then I think it from the progressed into matter and energy and about the existing of the universe.

 

So, Alhamdulliah, You know, this is something that we have to understand that not everyone is going to believe what you just claim. You need to substantiate what you claim. So you cannot just say energy always existed, and then assume that we will all believe it.

Even the Scientists don’t work like that. They need to substantiate. They need to go through certain peer groups to find out whether the theory that you believe in, can be falsified or the truth. Yes, it’s a scientific approach as well, to look at things objectively and to look at it.

But if you are going to then depend on a tool like science to understand things of the metaphysical world, then it is something which is beyond the scope of science. It is like the example of someone using a metal detector to find plastic. So the wrong tool for finding something which is metaphysical and that is science.

The science does tell us how things work. It does tell us, It will never be able to tell you things like the origin of the universe, won’t be able to tell you an origin of many things, like the first cell and so on.

Yes, they can speculate and assume things, but cannot tell you for certain how things originate.

Beware Of These Two Extreme Behaviours On The 10th Muharram / Ashura | Ustad Mohammad Tim Humble

From the four sacred months of the year is  Shahrullahi Al-Muharram, Allah’s sacred month of Muharram. And if you reflect upon it, Allah azawajal nended the year with a sacred month; The month of Dhul-Hijjah and Allah began the year with a sacred month; Shahrullahi Al-Muharram.

Imam Ibn Rajan (Rah),  he mentioned a benefit in this. He said the reason it is Allah’s month is because the action that is associated with this month is Allah’s action, the action that is only for Allah (swt) and the action that is only for Allah (swt), It is the action of fasting. And since fasting is something which is only for Allah in the sense that nobody knows if you are really fasting except Allah, then because this action has a greater level of attachment.

Something which is very, very important for us to point out is that with regard to the day of Ashura, there are two extremes, extreme behaviour that we see among people who claim for themselves Islam.

And in reality, they have nothing to do with Islam. And Islam has nothing to do with them.

It is a day of solemn, of fasting and a day of worship. It is a day of solemn, of fasting and a day of worship. It’s a day to worship Allah, the way the prophet (pbuh) worshiped Allah on that day.

If you don’t take advantage of your time, you will lose except those who believe and do good deeds.

So fill this month with fasting and obedience to Allah. Don’t oppress yourself in this month of Muharram. Take this time to come near to Allah with voluntary fasting.

Look for the day of Ashura and fast one day before it and the day of Ashura itself. And be from those people who take advantage of Allah’s Month of Muharram.

How To Observe Muharram With Fasts & 3 Misconceptions Especially on 10th Muharram / Ashura | Mufti Menk

We are in the month of Muharram , which is the first month of the Islamic calendar. It has to do with something haram, something prohibited. So what is haram and why is this month called Muharram?

 

We’re supposed to be making resolutions every night. We’re supposed to be renewing our vows to with Allah (swt) every night. We’re supposed to be seeking forgiveness every night.

We should be making peace with Allah (swt) every single day. Seek forgiveness; promise Allah you are going to be a better person. Never give up. If you’ve fallen into sin again and again, you need to go back to Allah again and again and again.

May Allah (swt) grant us a beautiful returning to Him.

Some people believe that we are not allowed to get married in the month of Muharram because it is bad luck. Unfortunately, that is totally baseless.

Some people believe we are not allowed to wear any good clothing, which is also baseless.

And some people believe the opposite, saying that we are supposed to be celebrating to the degree that we should be partying and so on this day. That is also baseless, but rather it is more about the lesson.

some people don’t realize that in the month of Muharram, Allah (Swt) has ordained certain things and Allah (swt) has chosen the month of Muharram for certain things. He calls it Shahrullahi Al-Muharram.

let’s make resolutions on a daily basis and let’s look into the resolutions we’ve made and see how best are practicing upon them. Let’s see how best we’re actually fulfilling them.

Remember, if you have bad habits, this is the time to quit those bad habits.

Funny! You Cannot Exclude A Green Elephant! Mansur Vs Skeptic Atheist | Speakers Corner

How would you use logic to exclude possibilities? Why would a flying spaghetti monster not be the cause of our universe;

You see, if you try to deflect, you know, how you would come to believe by examining your mind, and then you haven’t really thought about yours properly?

What would you include as a possibility about the origins of our universe? Can our University be itself, the cause of its existence?

There are many things we don’t know, but we can exclude by logic and rationality.

How can you use logic and yet you still believe in contradiction?….

Do These Powerful Acts On Arafah Day To Renew That Contract With Allah (Swt) | Dr Omar Suleiman

The prophet (pbuh) described as the best day that the sun has risen upon is the day of Arafah. The day that you come to know your Lord, every single year.

All of us stood before Allah on that day, and it was upon us that an oath was taken, Alalh asked each and every single one of us, am I not your Lord? Allah asked each and every single one of us am I not your Lord? And all of us say, yes, we bear witness.

The day that represents one of the five pillars of Islam. The best thing that you can do that covenant over and over and over again.

The word Arafah means to come to know, to come to know who? To come to know your Lord, And if you know your Lord then you know yourself.

And if you know yourself then once you know your Lord and then you know yourself, then you will naturally know your own shortcomings in regards to your Lord, the blessings that He has bestowed upon you are prerequisite to understanding the deficiency with which you have responded, which then leads you to the most sincere version of your supplication, realize that the dua that we say throughout that day does not just have an acknowledgment of Allah’s oneness, but a praise for all of the blessings that He showers upon us throughout the year and the prophet (pbuh) taught us Sayyidul Istighfar.

Only The Quran Answers Those Questions Not Science! Shamsi To Visitor | Speakers Corner

In order for you and I to know which one is the message of the most High, Which one is a fake one, for example, the true messages of God that come with the prophecies, that come with the miracles, they come with the same teachings, even though they never met each other.

So we have to ask the questions; how we got here, what is our purpose in life, why we have to die? And these questions, no one answered in details like the prophets and messengers, especially in the Quran.

The Quran says we have created you one of the reasons, the wisdom behind it for purpose is to worship the Creator likewise as a test, likewise for the Creator… implement His name, attributes: attributes of mercy, of love, of anger, of justice, of wisdom, of Highness, you know, likewise to recognize one another.

Why Islam is true because Islam goes in line with our universal knowledge, our common sense; universal knowledge… Naturally, you know that you should worship one God, there is one Creator. Naturally, you know that for something to come into existence must have a creator. Naturally, you know that oppression is wrong, you see.

So with Allah, sent the messengers, especially Islam, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), He said sent him with the legislation that goes in line with that worship one God, believe all the prophets and messengers, Moses, Abraham, Noah, Jacob, Isaac, all of them, because all of them came to us to worship one God. And when we die, Islam speaks about that in details.

What distinguishes Islam from any religion or any way of life or any idea, Islam goes in line with our universal knowledge. Who give us a universal knowledge? The Creator….

Top 7 Targets For The Best 10 Days Of The Year! Dhul Hijjah Or Zul-Hijjah |Ustad Muhammad Tim Humble

One of the best, if not the best of all of the times of the year, a time which Allah (swt) swore by in the Quran and Allah azzawajal only swears by the most important of things.

So this is a huge opportunity for us after the month of Ramadan has ended and all of us felt the effect of the end of the month of Ramadan, maybe many of the effects of that month have gone from us. Many of the extra deeds that we used to do have gone from us, many of the extra prayers that we used to do have gone, many of the extra reading of the Quran that we used to do, much of it has gone. Much of the extra charity that we used to give has gone, much of the extra remembrance of Allah that we used to do has gone. Now we have a chance to bring it back again in a time that is the best time for good deeds in the whole year.

So really, we have two things to think about. The first thing is to maximize the time that we have in these 10 days. So if we are expecting Eid to be in the 10 days to maximize this time and the nights come with the days. So it’s not just the daytime because the nighttime comes with the day. So the day and the night to maximize that and get the most out of it.

The prophet (pbuh), he said, the greatest day in the whole year in the sight of Allah is the day of sacrifice.

How many amazing things happen in these 10 days; First of all, the days in which your deeds are most beloved to Allah. Second of all, the day in which Allah frees more people from the Hellfire than any other day. Third of all, the best of all of the days of the year is the day of Eid ul Adha.

Reciting tasbeeh, tahmeed, tahleel and takbeer abundantly.

There are many ways in which you can increase in reward during Dhul Hijjah. Performing dhikr (remembrance of Allah) is one of the easiest ways to obtain reward and which can fit around your work and family life.

It is a highly recommended Sunnah to recite during the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, the following:

  • Tasbeeh (SubhanAllah) • Tahmeed (Alhamdulillah) • Tahleel (Laa ilaaha ill-Allah) • Takbeer (Allahu Akbar)

“That they may witness things that are of benefit to them (reward of Hajj in the Hereafter and also some worldly gain from trade), and mention the Name of Allah on appointed days, over the beast of cattle that He has provided for them (for sacrifice).” (Qur’an 22:28)
