'ala

has given the human being which is to

recognize the essential unity of Allah

subhanAllah data through the

means of his creation of Allah's

creation now in the Quran says Samuli

him I had been at that I thought they

were film who seen him we will show them

our signs in themselves and on the

horizon until it becomes clear to them

that this is the truth and isn't it

enough for them that your Lord is over

all things witnessing is over all things

witnessing this silence now our and this

surah is a beautiful example of this

these signs are unfolding at such a rate

that there are not enough intellects to

interpret the information coming in that

is how fast information is coming at

this time at this at this juncture in

the human saga there is so much

information coming in to the astronomers

to the biologists to the geneticists to

the psychologists to the geologists all

of these different fields that they

literally cannot synthesize it but what

you will see an underlying threat is

that each in each one of these fields

they are singularly recognizing

fundamental truths that the Quran

articulated to the human being and this

is an uncreated book articulated to the

human being through the band through the

clarification 1400 years ago

so then there is the merciful who has

taught the partner created the human

being and taught him articulation

the human being is placed between these

two things or arm and the ability to

understand the partner if either one of

them is not present then we don't call

this creature a human being we call him

less than human if a person does not

think he is not really a member of the

human race because this is what has made

us human the ability to think you know

Descartes the French philosopher said I

think therefore I am

and a German phenomenologist much later

came along and said no I am therefore I

should think the fact that you have the

ability to think is all the more reason

that you should and yet we live in a

society that is absolutely Bennis it is

bent on preventing people from thinking

and this is an extraordinary thing to me

because they think at a very high level

in this society they think very deeply

they really do I mean you can see it if

you go and look at the stuff there

they're researching what they're

thinking about and yet there is an end

if I was paranoid I would tend to think

that this was really a conspiracy

against the human race that's what I

would think if I was of a paranoid

personality I would definitely think

that there are actually people that

don't want human beings to think they

want to keep them dumb like animals they

want to keep them literally chained in

their own minds

in their own minds like chickens in

Turku I mean this is what one would

would suspect if one looked objectively

at the media at the educational system

in this country there's a beautiful book

that I'd recommend all of you to read

it's by John Taylor Gatto is called

dumbing us down and it's by a man who is

given the award of the Teacher of the

Year award in the state of New York City

one of the toughest states if not the

toughest to teach him and he was given

teacher of the Year award and in this

book he says very clearly I am NOT a

teacher we do not teach we indoctrinate

this is what we do this is what the

educational system is it is a process of

indoctrination it indoctrinates you into

the logic of this system you see now

unfortunately what happens when you come

out at the end of it and for all of you

students I'm going to depress you

when you come out of it at the end you

see you have three choices well one of

them is not really a choice and you make

this choice at some point in your life

you can choose to become what they call

a professional go into malls go into

medicine something like that a

professional field or you can choose to

become a technician go into the

technical fields once you do that when

you make that choice you have chosen to

be co-opted by a system and become a

servant of that system this is it is a

choice that you make it is a conscious

choice that you make to be co-opted by a

system that is bent on exploiting other

people it's bent on

on the continuity of human suffering and

this is not I'm not just making things

up I mean it's all documented I mean you

don't have to look very far to see what

you know the foundations of this society

and that the basis of this society in

the United States of America in

particular and we are in the heart of

darkness I mean this is it we're in it

that this society is in the words of the

Hopi Indian language alikat see it is an

entity that exists by sucking the life

out of others this is how does society

sustains itself by sucking the life

there if you look in creation and Allah

constantly tells us to do this

there are basically three forms there's

more but I'm going to just give like

very rough there are three forms major

life forms there's what's called my

forms based on predation which is

preying on weak and then there's life

forms based on parasitism where they

they're parasites they don't kill the

thing they just suck the life out of it

and use it now some parasites are more

harmful than others you see I mean

somebody you can call for instance

somebody on welfare

many people have made this analogy that

this is a parasite on but see that a

welfare recipient in this country is

like a little mollusk on a whale now

there are big parasites they're called

CEOs and nobody ever talks about them

nobody ever talks about them about how

they suck the life out of the society

they exist and that be that's because

they own all the parents you know when

you own all the parents you can have

anybody say the Arab poet said it

beautifully

he said he said imagine Ana so he

descended in Memphis aha

well he that their hands money wonderful

thing it can ordinate men and make them

look honorable and Noble

it's atone for the one who wants

eloquence and it's a sword for the one

who wants killing things don't change

until perspectives change there's what

you call untested feasibility this is a

beautiful concept a Brazilian educator

articulated which is that there are so

many things that are possible in this

world

they're feasible that people can move

together as we have historical precedent

that that humans of many diverse colors

and cultures and ethnicities have moved

together in a mutual society where they

actually help each other where they

actually don't exploit one another I

mean we have had this and those people

that tell you that that that is altruism

that

never existed they are lying to you and

they're lying to you because it's very

frightening to accept that because of

how ugly we have become so this this

second type of the third type is where

people actually there's mutuality the in

creation you see this I mean Darwin said

it was all survival of the fittest

that's that's like predation everybody's

out to eat everybody else well that is a

false view of nature that is not the

whole picture that is partial there are

many creatures in nature that actually

help each other but they work together

many creatures and any biologist or

ecologist can can tell you that now

after our lives told that is we've lost

this the four iron or our thinking our

cognitive element then we fall into one

of two categories we fall into the

category of Kufa Kufa which is too rigid

to to reject thinking I mean that really

is what kufur is which usually

transcendence disbelief but it is not

disbelief Cooper is rejecting thought

because according to the Quran if you

think you will come up with the same

results with the same conclusion then

Allah says that the result of this

reflection is super Hanukkah not cut off

the head about the other you are perfect

and you have not created this in vain

this is the result of deep reflection

that you can see that this now there's a

beautiful ayah in the Quran that I think

articulates this perspective so well

when allah subhanho wa taala swears by

moaka and the jewel

there are two more Bmore I swear by the

positions of the stars

this is a great oh it's a deep oh it's

not a superficial oh allah doesn't swear

by superficial things I swear by the the

positions of the stars now the beauty of

the Arabic languages that also means the

positions of the ayahs in the Quran

because Lu Xun is revelation ledger

metal ayah means that ayah was revealed

so Milwaukee and resume is not simply

the constellations of the stars but it

is the positions of the ayahs in Iran

itself and this is what Allah is

swearing by and this is a vast oh and

then this is a generous pour on lamisil

in Makaha room the only people that have

access to this book are purified people

who purify themselves through Flickr and

Vicar reflection deep thought and the

remembrance of their Lord they go

together that the remembrance of your

Lord will change your cognitive capacity

it will enhance it it will give you

inspiration it will give you the ability

to see things that you would not see if

you are in a state of what's called the

Buffalo or heedlessness

now if you look take any city child

right and we have millions of them now

take any of them out to to campsite in

say Yosemite to go not too far away and

you can see the Quran says that even

know me Seth when the when the stars are

put out you see they're put out and we

don't even see the stars anymore go

outside right now it's dark you look up

in the sky you don't see any stars Tony

said they're gone now when you go see a

city person literally grows up in that

environment they don't even know the Sun

of those from the west to the east or

that milk comes from a cow or that I

mean really basic things that people

used to reflect on many children in

cities don't even have that perspective

so you take it

it'll look up at the stars and it'll say

wow man check that out city boy

what does it see it just sees chaos I

mean that child won't see any patterns

you won't see constellations you won't

see the Big Dipper he'll just see a

bunch of bright lights up in the sky

now the Nostromo comes along he can stop

pointing out to you see here's the Big

Dipper

and there's three of these and there's

the North Star and now watch there's a

constellation coming up within the next

hour how does he know that because he's

observed it he's watched it you see and

human beings have been watching the

Stars for centuries one of the earliest

human occupations

watching the Stars because they're

fascinating there must be yeah Allah

says their light into the sky was a

gymnast Emma we have ornamented the sky

jinn and we'd love to look at ornaments

so that young child will then begin to

see patterns that he had not seen before

now if you look at the Quran the Quran

and this is a classic thing that Western

people do they open the Quran visit me

this is all jumbled it doesn't make any

sense

it starts not talking is in the first

verse and then it moves to the second

person and then it moves to the third

person Allah says I he says untie me

there's no there's no god but he all

this chick and they say what's this mean

and then they said there's no pattern I

can't discern any pattern here easy

because he's like that city boy looking

up at those stars those ayahs up there

and not seeing any pattern but if a

teacher comes if an astronomer comes

because there are astronomers of the

Quran there's people that have studied

the stars in the Quran and they're

called the dilemma and idea and these

people when they look into the

Quran they see something infinitely

deeper than that they don't see

confusion they see absolute harmony they

see perfection they see a proof of the

truth of this book and this is why I

want says that only the people of

innermost core of loop loop is innermost

core it is the thing in the the fruit

like the apple seed is aluminum and this

is what the human being who understands

the Quran is called looping a possessor

of innermost core but it takes

reflection it takes work thinking is

work you see I mean many people go

through their lives and never think

about anything and it's a it's a mines a

terrible thing to waste

immediately after this and our closes up

himself immediately after this of myself

assumed so what I'm the first man the

Sun and the moon which are creational

opposites are in absolute reckoning they

are where they should be everything is

as it should be

don't mess with it human beings are as

they should be

the deccan and the ones are the male and

the female this is a creational opposite

which they're they're balancing each

other they eat each other one is not

greater than the other but they're not

equal they're opposites we don't say the

Sun is equal to the moon but you need

the moon in the night just as you need

the Sun in the day you can't do one

without the other

this is not the nature of creation and

you need one to know the other you need

a heart to know cold because we haven't

as yet they're upset by opposites things

are known so we know ourselves as a man

I understand myself to be reflection in

woman and this is why the prophet saw my

son and said hopefully better yet that

hath him in dunya I have come to love I

have been made to vote in the passive

form I have been made to love three

things from your world a plea when we

said is Allah sent and women actually

women and he says will be an incense and

the prayer now on one level you could

look at that is that the Prophet Elias M

is articulating the nature of the

greatest physical pleasure that Allah

has made for the human being is in the

mate that Allah has made for them the

Toscano alaihe that you find this Sakina

is tranquility in your mate for the male

in the female for the female in the mail

in spite of san francisco now

if you look when the profits of my

sentence is this what he's saying is

between these two between the most

extreme physical pleasure that Allah has

given us which is an act of worship for

the Muslim if you are a Muslim even that

is an act of worship because everything

is missing now everything is with a

sacred understanding and then to the

other extreme the most spiritual

pleasure is prayer with Allah the most

the greatest physical pleasure is union

with your mate and the greatest

spiritual pleasure is your spiritual

union not any type of union with Allah

but a spiritual connection with Allah

through prayer and between the two is

sent which is a beautiful metaphor

because scent is it has a spiritual

element and a physical element it

elevates the soul but it's also pleasing

to the senses and this is why scent is

always associated with the prophets at

Pajaro massage ethical give sent to your

messages he said we're sent on the day

of Jummah and he wore sense all the time

because it it reminds the soul of

general you see it reminds what I had

but often what it Hanna generous is

succulent and and sent for beautiful

sense and so this

when legible was scheduled yes to Dan

and thus far the ornaments of the

heavens prostrate to Allah and the

ornaments of the earth the foliage of

the earth prostrates to Allah this is

the creational balance the heavens are

in submission to Allah and the earth is

in submission to Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

was an and this heaven we have raised up

and we place this absolute perfect

balance between these two opposites

don't destroy this balance don't destroy

the balance by women becoming men by men

becoming women don't destroy this

balance by exploiting people that Allah

has given you as a Rama that you can

hire them that they can do labor for you

don't destroy this balance by charging

interest on poor people that are in dire

straits and Allah has given you the

means of money to facilitate exchange

between you and you use it to create

money you take a means and make it an

end don't destroy this balance this is

the message from Allah Subhan Allah Tala

to humankind in surat ar-rahman don't

destroy this balance that we have set up

this is a divine bond that was set up by

the one Allah wha-hoo lovely for Kabir

doesn't he know the one who created this

thing and he's the all-knowing be all

aware don't destroy this balance don't

upset this balance what opinion wasn't a

better person and established this

balance with justice now just as this

word this has to do with portions giving

people their portion this world if you

look at the sea this planet economics is

based on I give scarcity scarcity is an

illusion it is an illusion the only

thing that is scarce on this planet

with Islam that is the only thing that

is scarce on this planet because if

there was a sarong there would be an

abundance of everything there would be

an abundance of everything the rain

would pour down from the skies as a

mussel panel without it says in what it

was if they would just be upright in

their way we would pour down from the

sky

copious rain and this means not simply

the physical rain but the spiritual

nourishment to make life harmonious to

make life beautiful to make life

continue and so unless the panel of town

is telling us there's not scarcity he is

no woman and Arlene the possessor of

overflowing bounty overflowing bounty

his bounty knows no hands because I knew

somehow I do what I can to Allah is the

storehouses of the heavens and the earth

but the hypocrites have no knowledge

they have no understanding these people

that go out and save in their hearts

what they say with their tongues what

they don't believe we want equity we

want to a see this the world manner it

goes around telling people that we want

to set things right

even that's what you do for other when

it said to them don't sow corruption in

the earth they say even a man that when

whilst at home we're just setting things

right

we're just rectifying we're putting

things straight

that's all we're doing that's why we're

giving you a five-year plan that turns

into a ten-year plan that turns into a

20-year plan and before you know it

people that were once living with human

dignity are now an absolute subjugation

and humiliation so allah subhan allah

tala is telling us that he is the

possessor of overflowing bounty but you

have to

even you have to breathe out in order to

breathe in if you don't give out don't

expect to receive if you don't want to

share the good don't expect to get any

good that is the nature you see the word

for miser in Arabic also means

constipated you see a miser Otto

intoxicates himself you see in other

words because he won't let go of that

foul matter that was good when he when

he swallowed it it was beneficial but

once it's in the bow you have to let it

go

or it's gonna kill you you see but they

don't want to do now it's not for

nothing also that the Arabic word for

pure gold is the same word for the

people matter of the child when the

purpose of my son was offered as a cat

he said Benny Hashim doesn't take their

cut because it's an ass

now all that in the Arabic language

means it's the wealth that have you have

to let go of it in order to get relief

in order to be healthy in order to

maintain your health and so this is what

I want some kind of diners telling

people follow these things and you will

get all of these wondrous things in

return so establish it with us giving

people their proper proportion there do

what is due to them well that took

several me Zack and again reiterating

don't destroy this balance and we have

placed this earth for every living thing

and nm is everything that has a war

according to Imam Khamenei everything

that has a rule and we are Khalifa we

are responsible for this earth we are

responsible for the life-forms on this

earth we are responsible for maintaining

the balance of this earth and Allah

subhanAllah

I said in this forearm in this chapter

that he raised up the heavens and then

he tells us that he placed the earth for

a living thing and between the two is

the museum the balance and he has told

us don't destroy the museum
