Sūrat al-Sajdah (32:1-9)

Delivered on 3/6/2016

Shaykh Amin provides an introduction to Sūrat al-Sajdah and comments on the comprehensive meaning of the word ‘sajdah‘ (prostration). In this lecture:

  • the soundness of saying, “I do not understand” after understanding the wisdom of Luqmān (AS)
  • sajdah‘ as a representation of the universal submission of the intellect
  • how the worship of Allah ﷻ makes one more knowledgeable
  • the fallibility of knowledge that is not waḥy’-based
  • the purpose of revelation
  • understanding revelation secondary to submission
  • the transcending nature of prophetic sight
  • the inadequacies in transferring knowledge across worlds
  • Divine commands and time

Sūrat al-Sajdah (32:23-30)

Delivered on 4/3/2016

Revelation comes from above, and hence its content does not lend to being contextualized based on the needs of the community. In this lecture:

  • the Torah, a book of guidance
  • leaders versus followers
  • leading requires patience and steadfastness
  • the nature of constitutional disagreements
  • a universal view of impostors
  • the pervasive theme of submission (sajdah)
  • similes for revelation and guidance
  • the seed of skepticism – self-cultivation
