Who Is Allah – Know Your Creator

The lord of earth and kursi we are talking about the lord of the worlds.
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
All praise is for Allah—Lord of all worlds,
[surah al-fatihah:1]
We are talking about the lord of the entire universe and beyond. The entire universe and beyond. You know we live in this duniya pant we are fascinated with this duniya which allah subhanahu wa ta’ala india has created in a beautiful manner.

We are fascinated, there are over billions of people which live on this duniya at this moment in time. Over 6 billion people that live on the duniya at this moment in time. This duniya of allah subhan allah tala is so big.

That there is space in this duniya for billions and billions and billions for more people, but what is this duniya in comparison to what Allah subhana wa tala is created out there.

This duniya is insignificant. This duniya is meaningless to allah. It means nothing. It is a worthless place. So worthless, compare it with the sun?

The sun is one star. You know more science than me. You will be able to tell me better. Take this planet earth and you place it inside the sun. And you will be able to place 1.3 million earth in the sun.

1.3 million earth in the sun, allahu akbar!

Allah is the greatest. The sun is one star. One star. There are stars out there which are millions of times bigger than the sun. You need, you tell me this.

That you need millions and millions of stars to make one galaxy. And then you tell me this that there are zillions of galaxies out there. Let me tell you on top of this my friend. After this whatever you see above. Whatever you see above, when you raise your head and you look above. What ever you see above the zillions and zillions and zillions of galaxies .

Let me tell you, this is everything there is within the first heaven. Everything there is within the first heaven and Allah is the creator of seven heavens.

Seven heavens. And the distance between the first heaven and the second heaven is 500 years. You know the distance that can be covered in 500 years at what speed?
Only allah knows.

Only allah knows. But it will take 500 years to get from the first heaven to the second heaven. 500 years from second heaven to the third heaven. Third heaven to fourth. Fourth to the fifth. Fifth to sixth. Sixth to seventh. Every time it will take 500 years. After the seven heavens

وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ
His kursi extends over the heavens and the earth [2:255]

You all read the ayatul kursi. You all know the ayat ul kursi, after this you have the kursi of allah. You have the chair of allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. You know these seven heavens that we have just talked about in comparison to the kursi of allah. They are non-existent.

They are meaningless rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given an example in a hadith just to give us a little bit of understanding with regards to the seven heavens in comparison to the kursi of allah.

Take a ring from your finger. Take it off, the small ring that you have and place it lets say in a desert. The sahara desert is the biggest desert in the world. You know that ring that we take off from our fingers and place it in the sahara desert. What comparison is in between the ring and the sahara desert?
Nothing!
Nothing!
The seven heavens is ring and the kursi of allah is the sahara desert.

After the kursi of allah. You have the arsh of allah.

وَكَانَ عَرْشُهُ عَلَى الْمَاءِ
And his throne had been upon water
[11:7]

You have the arsh of allah. Again rasulullah has given, has explained just so that we can understand, take the ring and place it in the desert.
This time the ring is the kursi, and the arsh is the desert what is the kursi in comparison to the arsh of allah?
Nothing!

Then you have angels which carry the arsh of allah. Their heads are in the seventh heaven and their feet are in the lowest earth.My friends! Then you have the lord of the arsh and kursi.

لَّا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الْأَبْصَارَ ۖ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ
Vision perceives him not, but he perceives [all] vision. And he is the subtle, the acquainted.
[6:103]

He is beyond. The size of allah. Who allah is?
What allah is?
The greatness of allah is beyond. The comprehension of my little mind. This is the being that you and i are messing with

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ
Allah- there is no deity except him, the ever-living, the self-sustaining
لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ
Neither drowsiness overtakes him nor sleep
لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ
To him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth
مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ
Who is it that can intercede with him except by his permission?

يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ
He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them,
وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ
And they encompass not a thing of his knowledge except for what he wills.
وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ
His kursi extends over the heavens and the earth,
وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا
And their preservation tires him not
وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
And he is the most high, the most great.
[2:255]
