Witnesses on Judgement Day

Salaam alaikum everyone!
welcome to “Amazed by the Quran”

a series in which I love sharing with you things I find amazing about the Quran

today a little bit about this beautiful bird

“Al HUd-hud” that’s mentioned

in Surah An-Naml

Allah Azzawajal says

[Wa Jadtuhā Wa Qawmahā Yasjudūna Lilshamsi Min Dūni Allāhi Wa Zayyana Lahumu Ash-Shayţānu ‘A`mālahum Faşaddahum `Ani As-Sabīli Fahum Lā Yahtadūn] (Quran 27:24)

uh.. the bird comes and reports back to Sulaiman (A.S.) after going to

see Queen Sheba’s – Queen Saba’s kingdom

and this is her analysis:

[wa jadtuhā wa qawmahā yasjudūna lish-shams]

“I found her”

“and her nation”

“prostrating to the sun”

so they’re worshipping the sun

[min dūni Allāh] – “as opposed to Allah”

[wa zayyana lahumush-Shayţānu ‘a`mālahum]

“and Shaitan”

the Devil

“has beautified – has successfully beautified their deeds to them”

meaning this heinous act of worship

is a decorated act

and they think it’s a spiritual act and a great

you know – profound ritual etc.

[faşaddahum `anis-sabīl]

“so thus he has prevented them”

from the path – from the correct path

[fahum lā yahtadūn]

“thus they are not”

“going to commit themselves to correct guidance”

they’re too invested

and too immersed

in their – in their

you know – Shirk ways

in their ways of blasphemy

and they beautified it for themselves because of Shaitan

that they’re not going to commit themselves to guidance

I’m amazed by this Ayah because this is a bird

that’s giving this profound analysis

a bird didn’t just see that they are worshipping

it sees and reports that they are worshipping the sun

# 1

and that they’ve actually decorated

this ritual

to the point where she can tell Shaitan has beautified this for them

and he’s prevented them from any means of finding the right path

that is a really deep insight by a bird

and they’re not going to commit themselves to guidance – [fahum lā yahtadūn]

what I’m trying to get at is

Allah has put all these creatures that don’t have a speech we can understand

Sulaiman (A.S.) is given the ability [Mantiq al-Tayr]

the ability to converse with birds

you know – to be able to communicate with them and they can communicate with him

what we’re learning through that little window that’s been open for us is:

these creatures – all of them have a language

and all of them are actually

they have their own way of recording what we do

what human beings do

like your

you have a pet

or you’re just driving around

you’re driving to some bad place

and there’s a bird sitting up on – like – the wires on the street

or on the street light – and it just sees you – it looks towards you

it’s a witness

and it’s got a pretty detailed account of what you did

it’s not just the angels on your sides that are writing it down

it’s the ants

it’s the

it’s the fly on the wall

it’s the birds

you know – it’s the cat

it’s the dog

these are all witnesses

and they – just because they don’t speak now, doesn’t mean they won’t speak on Judgment Day



even the way we think about animals

and how much they are going to be recording

on our behalf has changed

just because of this Ayah

that – like

what more do you need to become conscious of Allah?

you know

what did these people that were worshiping the sun

how trivial was it that a bird just flew by?

but you didn’t even think about it

It’s just a bird that flew by – and yet it was surveillance from Allah

it’s what that was

and surveillance done to report back to a Prophet

and on the Day of Judgment when everything becomes a witness


it’s not just our own hands – our own feet – but even the animals around us are going to be witness

may Allah Azzawajal make us conscious and make us realize the presence of Allah

and Allah’s full view

of all things

just by these beautiful examples that He lays up for us
