When I was
why should you have to worry
today inshallah we will be speaking about very, very beautiful score. This is a very important score for chapter of the Quran
was revealed before the companions left to have a shot. It was really the time in which the companions faced a lot of hardship, a lot of persecution from the non Muslims in Mexico. In fact, this was the time in which they were physically persecuted, armed. And
this, the source of this chapter was revealed
to help the Muslims deal with the trials and tribulations, the hardship.
If there was a small
chapter in the program that would be a manual on how to live and survive there in terms of trials and tribulations of hardship. This would be it.
And that's what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said
sort of the calf on Friday will have a light emitting from him until the next Juma until the next Friday.
And the messenger Rasul Allah, Allah wa sallam also said,
Whoever memorized what is, you know, what is the cap in another narration after, so the cat, whoever memorizes the throat and versus sort of the gap, and then the narration says the light, the final and the last 10 verses of sort of the gap, most of
you will be protected from the trials and tribulations of the job. Why is this the case? First of all, imagine the first few verses, the beginning of every song is like the introduction of this world. The introduction of vessel was going to mention the theme of this war, and how, so the rest, the stories that will come afterwards, we'll deal with proofs, and examples on how to deal with what's meant with what is mentioned in the theme. And so a lot of hamadryad starts with Alhamdulillah, that the answer and the kita the notice, Allah Subhana, WA tada starts with All praises be to Allah who revealed towards his sat down towards the servant, the book. So Allah
subhana wa says, our praises be to Allah. And there's a by the way, the revelation of the verses are the chapters. The placement of the chapters in the soldiers in the program, are put there, not just haphazardly. It wasn't them ups or anything like that. It was by the order of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so they were dividing,
but and so one first after the you might think, oh, why is this Oracle before this, before that and so forth? Because it was, it wasn't according to when it was revealed No.
But it was
important to the way or the place that last degraded and these verses were revealed, the first operand was revealed all at once, on the length of a letter to the
to the lower happens the whole of the band came down to the lower lower levels. And then after that a loss of hydrogen revealed it little by little and so when the last panel says right before this at the end,
sort of disrupt
our last panel our diocese, no pun intended that he loved me.
insane how did it that the one who did not take a sudden take for himself a son, with a new luxury COVID book and he does not have any partner in his dominium. So he tells us here to say what would happen to
the next door and have the lead at the ends.
So All praise is due to a woman who has reviewed this Book
to His servants
So the lower the more you lower yourself in servitude,
the higher your status is. And so the last panorama calls the messenger.
servant. This is the highest level of praise, it is actually praise. And that's why in the best, when the last time I mentioned, the greatest blessing what is one of the greatest blessing that a person can have? Islam right?
not only is that to be a prophet to have revelation been revealed to him, what greater blessing is that? In so in such cases, Allah Subhana Allah mentions when it comes to receiving revelation because of the greatness
of this blessing, about here's the term,
just like a loss of a hammer mentions of the great blessing when the last call an invite to the messenger of a loss of life to personally beat him. What does he say? stupider than the BMT Glory be to he who brought his servant.
And the night journey took him in the nighttime was the Islamic life because this was such a tremendous blessing and such such something that's unique for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he also says,
Our Praises be to be revealed, who sat down, when the loss of Hana advisors at zetta r&d, he sat down, this is another indication, and one of the one of the 1000s and 1000s of proofs that Allah Subhana Allah is above. Allah subhanho wa Taala is above. But you might say, hey, wait, when you say I've also had an amount that is above? What do you mean that I was paralyzed about?
If I say a lot, and I'm looking up above for me, is this direction? About above for the people on the other side of the earth? Isn't that another direction?
Right? You might say, well, how is that the case? First of all, we say a loss of habitat is above.
We say we say so because the last few months. So since lauscha, stellar and any attributes, names and attributes of Allah Subhana Allah are unique to him.
Names and attributes of velocity are unique to him. And he's there's nothing like until. And so when a person says that a lot is like a human. It's a major sin back then. And when a lot when also it's not permissible for us to deny something. When the last man says he has something when it says he has a face we have about what you love.
And his face will remain for the majesty and nobility. When the last one says he has a face. We believe that a man has a face, but it's his face like our face. No, it's not LASIK.
There's nothing like that to them, what was in it.
And he has our hearing out of our hearing on Steam. There's nothing like unto Him. And so we can't say allies like us, faces like us. But when he says he has a face, we believe in the face that is that is appropriate for us.
A face that is appropriate for our loss of power.
Because when you say a face, there are a lot of things that have faces, right? If I said,
you know your face is like the face of a
face of a pig is a pig face.
A pig has a face.
And your face is like the face as a chipmunk. Would you be angry at me?
Definitely, you probably probably be angry if I said that. Right? So awasum hammer has a face but his face is not like our face what angry when somebody says our faces by the face of an animal, a certain type of animal. But why is it? How can we say that a lot faces like office space about like our face, a face that we fit into a wall. But when someone says he has a face he has a face?
How does it look like? We believe it but we don't ask how? How does it look like? What because that gave a fear but again, that's something that's unknown because when we speak about the unseen, we can't have anything on except that which we have been told. Select For example, when we say do you have a hand? We have a I have a hand we all have hands.
When I look at the clock, I say there's a cocktail of hands. The hand of a cop? Yes. A clock has a hand but the candle the clock has been fitting for the clock and the hand on the human has been shooting for him. So
The last time I mentioned anything, there's nothing like it, there's nothing I can tell you. So it doesn't look like that. Except that time we don't deny it also. So success is above, we believe that he's above above the referring to our matsukawa. Just like when he say when we say that our eyes are hearing, and I'll see when we can we see also.
Yes, we can see, can we hear? Yes, we can hear? When is our hearing and seeing like a lot? No, it's not. Because when I'm looking at you guys here, I can't see anyone behind me.
One loss of data, he sees all of us and he sees at the same time, all the people in Japan at the same time, all the people in China, at the same time, when he hears me in the MCU, he hears the exact same time. All the people on earth, every single person he can hear in every single day you can hear at the same time. So we believe that must have arrows above. And you know what? And the last third of the night along the sentence, it comes down to the lower heavens. Yes, the last word descending. And these are ideas that are authentic, as clear as the sun.
But how does the master data decide he's above and then he decides he comes down? Does that mean he's not above any work?
Alex can be a bonus. At the same time, he can
still be above his throne, just like he can get me right again. And he can deal with people in Japan and also at the same time, because his deception is appropriate for lots of Hamlet.
And so all the attributes of Allah Subhan Allah Allah not like us, not like us. He does. He's not like us. But whenever he mentions, we believe. So when we say
you say hi.
befitting to us.
And then when we say and then you know, we don't need even if we didn't, you know, there's another proof also. You know, when a person asks a lot, doesn't matter who that person is where that person is.
When he says yeah, Allah what is
where does this article, this evil Yama,
Above all of us, everyone,
if even the even the most ignorant of people in the farms living somewhere in the desert, or some village, when they say,
we know what about meats? We know what about meats
is about is about. So we sat down and handed Larry and said
he sat down the book was a big unknown language. And he has not made any crookedness there. Why is this important in terms of times of trials and tribulations, Allah is introducing us and telling us in terms of trials and tribulations, terms of hardship, you hold on to Nikita, you hold on to the book of philosopher hammer.
Because there will be people who will say this is right, this is wrong, and the wrong will be right and the right will be wrong, you will not know you will not be able to distinguish what's right, what's wrong, what's good and what's bad. Unless you move on to the
book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so the importance of it in terms of trials and tribulations, I know we don't have a
wish, we have more time to go through some of the other things, but we'll go straight to the first story. And these stories are again, to help us understand and how to be strong and strengthen ourselves in when, at the end of time. And also in terms of trials and tribulations. So lots of payment starts off the first one.
The first one is about
the people, but a group of youth, a group of youth who have who come to Allah subhanho wa Taala they're being persecuted. And the last one that starts out the story. I'm passing to end as holography What Can I
Do you think that the companions of the cave, and that depends on what team they work at, and that if they were one, one on one, straight are amazing science? So lots of has thoughts on the question. And by the way, if you want people's attention,
in the one you mentioned a rhetorical question or something that will get a person's attention. And so I remember, the other day I spoke about the use of you have to start a story very powerfully, to to get people's attention right from the very beginning, because you only have a few seconds to get their attention, by the way, and they will decide whether they want to listen to you or not. So you have to catch their attention right from the very beginning. And one way to you know, to catch people's attention when they're busy thinking about this thinking about that. One of the best ways is mentioning something strange or asking a question
asking the question over and over, which makes them start to think makes them start to think. So just like for example, you can say something strange.
When I used to teach at Islamic school in Seattle, we used to mean sometimes you come into the classroom with students, you're just walking in, and the students are very busy doing whatever they were doing before you got in. And so what do you say to them? Do you say Everyone, be quiet? Everyone be quiet? And then you get some students? Right? Be quiet. And then the other one was?
Just be quiet. So this keeps on going on between them between the students? So how do you get their attention right from the very beginning?
He says something nice. That's really strange. To catch their attention.
Something really strange that they don't understand men Listen, pay attention. For example, sometimes you say, you know, girls are smarter than guys.
They're the ones. Right? And then after that, what do you mean by that? Right? Are you guys are smarter than girls? Like? Depends on the classes?
Why don't you say that you got the attended already you started? And that's why sometimes the process of elimination was not something you say, What do you what's
going to happen? mandatory limiter is going to happen? once every three times. Right? When the person every single time the, the the, the demands that went by, this is what he said, is to get captured their attention to get their attention to say something like that. So that's a symptom of the gap. What am I dealing with it now? Do you think these are like strange signs? Oh, Nintendo something amazing. So who are they as hobbled? By the recap? What's the difference between a cat and a cat? And
these two are in generalities, why is it important, because if you're going to find this location, you find a little you find a dog, you have to Okay, this is not what they want. And then you find something that doesn't match the description that you know, it's not right. And the differences.
It's just one small place. It's a trade when it's very, very small, small to the point where you really can't walk around, you can walk around, when it gets bigger to the point where you can walk around, and let you have also different chambers also, then you call that guy
here, because we have seven people they can't fit in at all. So people you can fit in about if you do you'll be like sardines, right? And so the gap is something that's bigger to be a tablet, or a big enough where you can walk around, it's really a big group, the place that's in a big hole in the cave, but big enough where you can walk around, or it has different chambers also. So you will probably call this either a large cane or a cabinet. If it's small, you call like law era law. So that's where the prophet SAW him. It wasn't that big, it was barely, barely fit one or two people. And so the last paragraph says,
Do you want a massive tennis handicap one of the what are the different opinions of our scholars who are
declared as Muslim.
And they have been others also the Messenger of Allah.
He said, as have a
homeless handlebar as herati, homeless traveler. And then he mentioned the story of the three people who got stuck in the cave, three people who get stuck in the cave. And so this is one of the opinions and its opinion, many of the scholars
to check out this particular person, and they said that he was having alone. These were three people who went
looking for shelter one night at nightfall, and when they went into the cave, went to the cave in big boulder came down and locked the path, the big boulder came down and block the path. And by the way, as habit capitalists have a routine or two types to some of the scholars have said one and so forth, but unlucky that the people that work, they said us habit death would work in an information that we have about the people the book from from the from the information from the, from the people in the book, they mix these two things up. So this has happened. They were blocked in. These were two people as having a lot of other people who got stuck in the game when the boulder came down and
blocked it. And then one of them said, Yeah, a lot. I used to have parents who were elderly, but it matches. It fits into the theme of this war. Also when you speak about us Abdullah why the soccer under the sun
People have a lot, they are somebody who are they,
they got stuck in so they try to push the boulder out. And they were not able to do so. And until one of them said, you know, we're not going to be free and saved from this, we're not going to escape from this calamity we're in. And unless we
supplicate to Allah with our righteous deeds. So one of them said, YOLO
I used to have parents who are elderly.
And I went very far seeking pasture validation. Here, the seeking pasture, looking for passion for his flock. And he didn't return until late night, and say it was late, and his parents had already gone to sleep. In his house. He says, My house nobody ate before my before my parents did. Nobody ate before my parents did. And so
nobody has nobody paid before his parents, his parents have already slept. And so what ended up happening was he, he said, I went, and I got there, the booth was there suffer, and you know, the lightning drink. And I sat next to the bedside,
waiting for them to wake up. And I was afraid to make, I was afraid to make any noise so that they wouldn't wake up.
And nobody in my house would eat before my parents, so don't do anything. And this is how he treated his parents.
And so I stayed there. until it was finally time until the break of dawn.
And then they woke up and I gave them their drink. And he said, Yeah, but did the solely for your sake, then three years from the calamity that we're here. And so the both are moved, but it didn't move enough for them to leave. But the point of the story here is that this man,
he was so pious, and so righteous, and so kind to his parents, that they were number one in his house. And by the way, by the way,
if you make your mother, number one,
then you have less problems with your wife.
You have less problems with you know, you always hear about what your mother loves. And so we're having problems with, you know, the wife, right? Well, how do you so one of the problems is, a lot of times it's because of the husband. First of all, when you marry another one, when you marry a woman, to your mother, that's another woman in the house. Okay, she's taking care of you from when you were very young.
She loves you a lot. And then this woman comes into your life, right comes into your life, and now it's her life also, because they you, you know, you're sad. And so now there's competition, right? If she feels that you're not treating, you're not treating her number one. She's not you're not number one anymore. There's going to be some problems. She's gonna have problems with your wife.
But if you always, to your mother has number one, she and she knows it. She knows it, that she won't have any problems with the wife. She won't have any problems with your wife. And then she'll treat your wife nicely and kindly. Why? Because she knows that she's always number one with her side. He's always the wrong one. That's why if you buy something, right,
make sure you get your mother first, before you want.
That's why I ordered some like new jacket or something like that my wife bought something. I'll go, I'll order like asking my mom first. And if she wants, I'll get both of them. You have to be just to be fair, so she knows that. She's almost
less you won't have any problems. Because now she's you don't. Your mother will come forward and say, who's this girl?
I took I changed his diapers. And he's like kissing up to her. Like, who is this who she
is, right. And then to your mother will start looking for any fault in her children. Anything she can find? One because it's another woman in the picture.
mother doesn't want that. He might not say it. She might not say she might have even feel it and realize it. But if you practice Islam
is always number one. And that's why for the husband or the husband, it doesn't matter in these marriages. And if he has a wife, his mother's always number one.
His mother's always number one. And so he's treating so this man is so kind of nice to his parents, but also
You know, what if we were to do the same thing? Do you know what? We would only be
doing something that they had already done for us many times? Did you know that?
You don't remember he said, he said, I was afraid to wake them up.
I was afraid to make any noise so as to not wake them up. Do you know we were babies, and we were asleep. No one ever made any noise, and there was they've been picked up.
But you can sleep and sleep and sleep, and they were gonna make sure we have brothers and sisters or visitors. They're not going to make any noises. They make sure that you get your sleep. Right. That's how they used to treat us our parents when we were infants when we were babies.
And you know, he always had that look that drink ready. Also, our parents used to do that for us already. Did you know that when, when our parents did not have, let's say, they ran out and they ran out of milk at home,
even at two o'clock in the morning, you know, your mother is going to tell your father to say go, honey, we need to wake up, we need to get some milk. You know, the baby does not have any milk. You might say the father might say it's two o'clock in the morning, I don't care if it's two o'clock in the morning.
Give him some water. Now we're getting some milk go to the gas station is still open 24 hours, you got to get some milk. At two o'clock, your father will drive in his pajamas to get something out for you.
Do you know that at any time, it's always ready, the locusts are always ready for you, they did it, they will go get it. Even at 2am in the morning, they will do so
every one of our parents used to do that for us. That's why if you were to do the exact same thing, you would only be trying to pay them back for something they have already done for you many times. And when they when you made a mess, they never complained. You know, when you wet your diapers and you made the house snap?
They never complained. So when they become older,
they start needing you just like he used to need them, you better take care of them.
You have to take care of them. Just remember they already whatever you're gonna do for the day or did for you before?
Sometimes you forget. So this man, he's a young live I did this solely for the free us from the calamity that we're in. Now how does this relate to sort of the car?
It relates to sort of the car because remember, they're in trouble.
They are stuck in a cave in the middle of nowhere. There's no way there's going to be a law survive to survive this except by the help of philosophy.
And so how do you increase? How do you prepare for problems and calamities by being obedient to a loss of power in terms of ease? Because in terms of ease, if you do good deeds, then you have something, you know, some ammunition for you to
write and then you can use it. And that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, dogs will have life that will ha yeah, it's efficient. Nobody timezone is, the Lord knows you are well known in times of hardship. And that is why if I want you to imagine,
imagine yourself, if you're in such a situation, what do I want? What do you have to say online? It's so and so if I did this only for your sake, freebies, but the comedies that I'm in something that's sincere because it is not sincere, it's not going to be accepted.
It has to be sincere and correct. led has to be sincere. And according to
If it is not, it won't be accepted and it's not sincere. Forget about using it. It's like counterfeit money, you bring forth you go to jail, try to use it for use or you go to jail.
And these are unnecessarily it's like counterfeit money, you can't use it.
So what these do we have?
And what they don't want us to seriously think about it right now. At this moment. If you don't have anything, you better start doing something about it.
Start doing something about it. And so that's how it's related to it also, in terms of calamities, how do you prepare for blending Well, in terms of ease, being obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of ease and the loss of Hannah will be there for you. So the story starts with a very powerful scene. So I mentioned earlier time, in our future to even have a group of youth, youngsters. they flee into the cave. And they say well, but I see them in the bunker, or my door or send upon this person. Send them
Congressman mercy, where you live in emelina, Russia, and also send us
and have mercy upon us and provide from us a rectitude or some path that is straight. For us the guidance shows the strict path. And then also Panama, these people, they went into the cave. And when they when they ran into the cave, fleeing from something we don't know. We don't know why.
Why are they Why are they so much in need emotionally seeking help from us, from what, and then the last panel to assess learning to get CBI data. And then
we hit upon the IRS in Alaska made them go to sleep.
And they knew for a time for many years, how many Alice's I just mentioned, they were sleeping for a very long time. So this is the first time a group of men go into a cave. And then they go to sleep for one day for two days, not for three days, years. Like if you said one year there'll be a lot ready for many years. So why how are they able to survive?
And how can a person sleep for this amount of time? And so then our last panelist is
to see which of the two
I saw the man let me know which of the two groups will know
better can count better calculate better the time the discount. So there was one so this is the beginning, right? This is the first thing now that remember the first thing is just to get your attention, introduce you to the story, okay, what was going on? Who are these people? Why did they sleep for so long and then the last
year to let them know people can calculate better than the time so what does time have to do with
less time the amount of years and so forth have to do it, then I must have said Okay, that was where I can ever
be that surely we will relate to you their story?
Their story and
indeed they were a youth, group of youth who believed in a possible believe it
was in the home Buddha. We increase them in guidance. We increase them in guidance.
Why did Allah subhanaw taala increase them and guidance? Can they believe in Allah? That Allah subhanho wa Taala increased them and guidance and also Alzheimer's as well about Kannada Paulo be
an awesome and also strengthen their hearts? Right? Why did the last month strengthen their heart?
Why? Because all of these things you need strong faith. You need guidance. In times of trials and tribulations. You need to know what's right and what's wrong. Because the right and wrong will be murky. The Good and bad will be murky, you will not be able to distinguish what's good and bad, what's right and what's wrong.
But then you will have guidance from Allah Subhana Allah and Allah will strengthen your heart in times of hardship when when it
what do they do? They stand up, they get up, they're not people go to sleep, what do they do, they get up and convey the message.
Part of keeping yourself strong if you want guidance, you have to be appreciative of this great blessing and that is the blessing of email in Islam. And if you're appreciative of that, then you want to share it with others and you convey it to others possible and that's how you keep yourself strong. Notice the word in God Whoo, this stood up to call others because of the time in which there are so many things are influencing you. You have to influence others. Otherwise you're gonna be influenced. Do you know the United States in North America with average person?
The average person sees 3000 ads a day.
Do you know that? You see 3000 ads a day either on somebody's shirt on the Billboard on TV or in a radio
If you every single time, they're telling you you will need this and you need that in business, right? This is good. This is bad. This is what you want. This is what even though you might not get it.
Like there are many things you don't need.
But they'll tell you, you have to have it.
And there may be things that are not good, but they'll tell you that is good.
Like, for example, you know, a long time ago, we had, what did we have? We had black and white TVs, right.
nobody complained, you know, the only complaint we have the color TV chain. Right? You know, everyone's in Joe's house because he has to color TV. Right? Now, later on. He had a big, humungous TV remember
gig TV that he needed 20 people to care? Right? It was humongous, right? It was big, but
I don't know why people bought that anyways, because so pixelated
is big. But hey, that's all I was. It wasn't clear. Right? And everybody was a Super Bowl was on
the Grey Cup here are the Stanley Cup where everybody went to that house, but the biggest TV, that's where the party is at. Right?
And then nobody can play those days. That was it. And then you have HDTV. Right?
The HDTV the big screen.
And you can see the grass.
You got to come to his house. John's house. You got the HDTV. You can see the grass, guys. Right.
And then later on.
HDTV isn't enough? Like a 3d TV?
They say you need it. But nobody
with a cell phone also remember before, right when we didn't have cell phones, no.
Cell phones, okay, right. Now, if you don't have a cell phone, how can you live without a cell phone?
Have any cell phones? people survived, right? Or even the internet? Remember those years when they had the superstar internet?
type of internet when whenever you were on the internet, your mom would yell at you.
nobody complained for like 15 years, 20 years, right? nobody complained. And now you know when they start complaining when the TV started saying is your internet slow? He
we got DSL, DSL is not enough anymore.
You got high speed, high speed internet cable internet and it keeps on going. It keeps on going. But before we have the read that nobody complained about it. So do you really need it? What's making us think that we have to have this because you're seeing it 3000 times a day.
So if you don't hold on to the parameter, you don't influence you to think the way that they want you to think. And so you have to hold on to the parameters. And you have to call people to them. And that's why when Allah subhanho wa Taala first reveal
the first surahs the first chapters, what did the last panel of Allah say?
First was a promise Mira Piggledy harappa. Remember, this is a time in which there was widespread evil, widespread injustice in Mecca, and the Messenger of Allah. So a lot of us have had to change this, he went to jail. But
so the first verses were misleading, because he had to learn to have knowledge, seek knowledge, learn to read, learn to read and have knowledge. That's Islam, you have to be educated, an economist, because they cannot change all of Arabia, they became the scholars of the world.
So in terms of trials and tribulations, you have to have knowledge. So you have to learn how to read and write what what do we get writing from a lending?
club? And then,
on top of that, you might say some people might say, the Messenger of Allah.
He didn't know how to read. So
some people might say that, what do you say to them? What do you say? First of all, the prophets of Allah, Allah knows how to read none of that. Right? First of all, that was a miracle in itself. Someone who's unless he knows all of this, it can only be from Alaska. Secondly,
messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not need to know how to read or write. Why? Because he is he has direct connection with the one who knows our revelation is coming to him from Allah.
He does not need to read Aristotle or Socrates or Freud.
You don't need to read Aristotle, Socrates or Freud.
You have direct connection to the one who knows.
Who knows the unseen, he knows everything. Direct Connection. So you might say, unless you have
to read and write, right, you don't have to do that. No more profits. So, so He better not read, right? And so we have to learn how to read and write. And we have to have be educated. Notice that it got here, you educate yourself, you don't have knowledge, you're going to be lost. knowledge of the good and bad, what's right and what's wrong knowledge
and be strong.
And then the last, what's the next verse that was revealed? yet? Yeah, I the next to your
for you is covered up in blanket, don't
stand up and more. In other words, you have to take that power, you have to call others. What does it mean when we say okay, stand up and call
does not mean that does not necessarily mean how you go here and therefore, certain amount of days and so forth. No, you yourself, the first thing you have to do is represent Islam.
And you have to be the best Muslim that you can be to the point where people will come to you, and then you will call them to Islam. And no one there. And then, of course, there's always a part of it.
And it's very important part of our game. But you have to understand our Deen is an all encompassing, and encompass many aspects. all the aspects of our lives. And where people go astray, where people go astray, is that they take a part of the team. And they make it a whole
user, they take a part of a team. And they make that everything.
In Islam Tao is a part of it
as a part of it, so he is a part of our game. Fit is a part of our team. And you have people in Russia, when it comes to Java EE
as nasty fat. The handler will be Olivia, they'll tell you all of that stuff when it comes to love zero.
Yes, they are.
And then you have some people not sure what it's all about spiritual.
The spiritual aspect. When you speak about
LSD, we need to concentrate on art,
the concentrated arts
there has to be a balance. When people go astray, they take part in a naked hole,
they take a part of the team and then make it a hole. But it does not mean that part that they're holding up is wrong. But don't make it Oh,
look at all the other all of the other things are also a part of Islam also. So you will need our core people to Islam, you know and also as Muslims, we have to be just we have to be you know, like for example, you know, you have people who, you know, they must not have concentrated down and a lot of people have come to come back to the rescue as resolved. Like for example, a
lot of people come back to the dean as a result of that.
Because there are a lot of people who are lost and so forth. And so they come back as a result of these, the people they have Mashallah very
well, if you stay with them, you know that you have to, it's like,
like that, you know, like first aid, right?
You bring them in, and they come back to the rescue. But don't put don't perform first aid for the rest of their lives.
They might need knee surgery, some people they need surgery,
but not perform first aid for the rest of the life. Like sometimes just some people just take that and that's it. They never take it another level. They never take another step where they don't filter don't even strengthen themselves, in other matters also in economics, as part of our Deen and politics, all politics and all the other aspects of our game, in fit into helipad, eat and so forth.
You have to be balanced, straighten yourself up. But don't say that also at the same time, don't say, Oh, these guys are lost and so forth, they have a part they take it apart. That's really, you know, important part of readiness, same time to start the whole thing. You know, some people sometimes, Mashallah, they're very good. But if you keep on hanging, if you're doing the exact same thing, you just want six points for the rest of your life.
But you have to take another level, memorize the Quran, only memorize it, start reading the Quran don't affect our Deen is more broad than that. So you stay on file,
stand up and call. So you have to call because you'll be if you don't influence others that are influencing, you're going to be influenced. So you have to stand up. And that's how I lost my strangers when we call people today.
And so, the second thing, what it also revealed after that, he
called me later
on he was covered up, stand up in prayer at nighttime, except for a small portion of it. Right from the very beginning of Islam was bordering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to stand up and pray one prayer,
the prayer is met with the hygiene,
the head to prayer, that's how important that is. Because you have to strengthen your connection with Allah.
You don't strengthen your connection with Allah with all the trials and tribulations, you're gonna fall,
you're gonna slip.
So you have to strengthen your connection with a loss of data. So the first pfitzner that is mentioned in Solitaire
is split that in the person's Dean.
The fifth and this is the most important that's why Allah starts with it, you have to hold on to your team, and it's going to be difficult and that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said,
There will come a time.
A person who holds on to his deed will be like a person who holds on to burning coal.
To hold on to light I know cover time, which will
let it go, it will be hard. You know, during the time of the companions, it was difficult like that, and it will return back to being difficult again. That's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, but that was a rule, nobody would come up
with ballyhoura is that started strangely returned back to Mr. baseplate. So give glad tidings to the strangers. But at the same time, the loss of Hello tells us about these, these youths, the Who are they? They are used the call to ask panorama laptop, Allah, Allah tells us of what they hid. And what is their rebuttal against people? Because the people who they're calling to what are they saying? Who are they following?
They are disbelievers, they are idolaters. And they are following the waves of their forefathers.
These are people who have taken besides a law, another guy, low level yet to
by yet, if only they would bring forth a clear, clear proof, clear evidences. And so when we worship Allah, we worship a lot the way a lot wants us to worship. We don't worship him according to our desires, or because of this person or that person. Now, our Deen is based upon proofs, based upon proof sound proofs and evidences from the poor and in Scotland.
So if you're going to do something, how proof for it.
Otherwise, you're just following the ways of your forefathers or forefathers. And so this is the exact same thing.
And so, in terms of trials and tribulations, you have people saying things that will not have proofs. It's very important to base our actions upon clear evidences, you do not just want to, for example, you worship a lot the way a lot wants us to worship. It's not how we decide, like for example, okay, I'm going to worship God, how am I going to do that? I'm going to go to the temple of the church and play the organ and start singing
I'm going to make a you know what? It started off? When my kid grows up and I tell them they're Santa Claus.
And then he said eight years old, says what? Santa Claus?
are telling you that Santa Claus is not real? But how can you start up your kid? Tell him about something that's fake? How can you lie to him about religion for the beginning?
How's he going to have any faith in anything else?
afterwards? And the first thing he knows about in your religion and Santa Claus, and then you say, No, that's a karma that makes you think that the rest of us know you have to tell people the truth. And it's something that you have evidences of
what are acting upon our own desires and wants and desires in worship Allah is going to give us the reward. And so you're going to worship a lot enveloping from Allah, the way you do it better be from Allah. And you better do it only for Allah. That's why the two conditions of the acceptance of the deen is that they have to be sincere. And they have to be according to a god.
Because we're worshiping God is giving us the reward we do it is when you can't make a single movement in worship, unless you have proof when it comes to the dunya, do whatever you want, unless you have proof that says no, except when you come to the festival and you're driving or under
can walk into the the profit zone.
Yes, a bit. Bigger indeed, is behind the worldly life. This is innovation. This is no. But at the same time, everything in the worldly affairs, everything that's not connected to the worship of Allah directly. That's all
proven otherwise. So you can do anything if you like hamburgers, as long as of course, is Venus.
In Africa, somebody can some people can't come and say, You know what, the prophets have never ate hamburgers, you better go back to this.
No worldly matters when it comes to work matters. You can eat anything you want. Unless you're not function says you can't. So the default is halaal. until proven in worldly matters, the default in worship
in a bad event, and that is purely by that is that it is how long until proven
in worship haramaty proven in worldly matters halab until proven how to do anything you want. If it's worldly matters. And so when you're going to do something, it better be based on the truth. So that's what these youngsters were doing. They were calling people to Allah, calling people to a deed and religion based on proven evidences. And because of that, they were chased. They were persecuted, to the point where they were running for their lives.
That's the reason. But what kept them strong because of what they did, and the loss of rent took care of them.
And how did a lot of Kevin take care of them? We'll see right now, Allah Subhana Allah says, when you get
sure. Lancome rock.
When you I
one of them said, and now that you have disassociate yourself from this, when you disassociate yourself from them, and that which they worship besides Allah.
They're being chased because of what they're calling people to. Because the people don't want you know that they don't want to change their lifestyle, even though they might know the truth, that what these these user colleges are true, and with clear evidences, the people that don't yet don't want to change your lifestyle.
That's why, you know, people who follow them, don't want religion. You know why people don't want religion, because they want to worship their desires.
When I see my attachment to Illa, Allah, there are some people who take their desires as
their religion and their Lord, whatever they whatever their desires, tell them to do. They do it as if it is a command from Allah.
They've taken that as their Lord. So those who reject God, those who reject religion, those who reject Islam are only doing so because they want to worship their desires. They're doing it the way they want to, and they don't want anyone to tell them to do this.
and they're still worshipping a god, even though they don't believe in say that I believe in God. But then God is their desires, whatever their desires, tell them to do they do it. That's it, my freedom, my point, I can do anything I want.
Whenever my desire once again, gonna follow it, I'm gonna do it. And that's the word
atheist agnostic no matter what it is what he claims are, you're not following the truth, you're actually following a god here you actually you do have a God, your God is here, desires. And so last time my dad tells us that one of them says, when you go in a calculus call, because you know, when do you leave? Like, for example, we're living in Canada right now. Is it better for us to live in Canada? Or do we go back to our countries?
Let me tell you the best place to live in Canada, especially with the healthcare system.
And people are very nice. And the best part of Canada probably the
coolest course, right? You guys are very blessed. You guys are very blessed.
We're very blessed.
Some people say say
we can live in a country. We got to go back to Muslim country. No, if you're allowed to worship Allah freely, this is the best place to stay.
Why? Let me tell you what,
sometimes I go, you know, I go back to Medina, I make some of my teachers. I mean, some of my teachers amongst the most of you know, teachers that I sit safely
say with them all the time.
And when I go back, and I was actually speaking to some of my teachers, and we were in front of the bus, you know, we were in the budget of the Office of the grave of the province.
I'm sitting with them, and
I tell them, I say, you know, she has we are very blessed to be here and the prophets must be able to prayer every single day. And must be they
must have you're very blessed.
And he says no, you guys are disappointed means it was traumatic. Thank you. Yeah, that's the best place to be.
I'm telling you,
what are you talking about? He says, You know, I have, I'm jealous of you. In a good way. A good jealousy
is that I'm jealous of you. You know, I'm jealous. Why? Because every day, you have the opportunity to call people to lie.
Every day, you are at the frontier of the Islamic
You are where the companions wanted to be. They didn't stand in Medina, they went out, they died all over the world.
You are blessed. And so as long as we still are able to worship a lot, every single day, we're representing the Muslim Ummah, in the frontier of the Islamic world,
as well we are, we're very blessed, every day,
responsibility also on our shoulders.
In US practicing Islam properly and correctly. So if you're still able to worship alive,
then stay. But there might come a time when you might not be allowed to. And if that happens, then go
to where you could freely worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and know that Allah will take care of you, while you let them in.
Russia, you ask Allah and Allah says Will you heikkila Ko? May?
Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of you. And Allah Subhana is telling us how good it must be. We don't have time to go through all the verses, verse by verse, But how did a lot take care of them?
A lot of
them, put them at ease and peace. made them go to sleep. And not only did he make them go to sleep, Allah subhanho wa Taala took care of them. How did he take care of him? He even turned them left and right. Back and forth. Just like a baby.
You know, baby steps to take care of you make sure so there are LastPass which is an Alaskan pilot says But
that she won't be fighting with a man
They're at the opening of the cave in the sun, the morning sun.
That morning sun hits them. The morning sun is cool. It's warm, it's comfortable. It hits them in the morning and in the afternoon. You know, it's very important for a person to have some sunlight. You notice when you have a baby, especially living in our area, Vancouver, Seattle, Victoria, when there's not too much sun
in the winters, especially, what is the doctor telling you to do when you have a baby? With it needs vitamin D,
vitamin D, what is it?
What does it get? What's that disease?
Otherwise, you need that, but you don't bring your son or daughter up in the middle of the harvest time. Nor do you bring your iPad out
works when the afternoon was not too hot. It's not scorching when it's warm
as taken care of them.
For those who hold on to the deal, in terms of marching along will take care of them. And the last man on earth and those who are strong and stand up for the deal, and are from a loss of life magnifies their reward. How does a lot magnify the reward
or magnify the reward of these seven people? By the way they are so
I sleep right now.
did they know that this is going to happen today? Well, they went to sleep
because of this insecurity. Because of their strength, standing firm
the effects of what they did, the lessons in their lives are going to be recited, read and learn until the day of attachment.
Even after they passed away, we're still speaking about them, and praising them
until the end of time and learning from their lessons from their actions. Because when a person is sincere, a lot magnifies that person's deep. And he will continue to reward that person because of their strength and sincerity and determination. So hold on to this Dean. In times of hardship, it might be difficult, but the reward is also very great. And so Allah subhanaw taala makes them go to sleep
takes care of them. And they wake up when
over 300 years later,
309 years later, they wake up.
What do they find when they wake up?
when they wake up, they find that everything has changed.
Before they were before they had to flee to the mountain
to the cave. They were persecuted and they were going to be executed. Their lives were at stake. How do we know? Because they themselves say so in no income, you're
too convenient for them to flee who
they get old stone.
Their lives are at stake. So they still think it's the same up there. They don't even know that they've slept for over 300 years. And when they come out what do they find? Everybody?
what's the lesson here?
The lesson is that
in the end,
those who worship Allah,
Islam will be victorious.
There will come a time
the people will say that a lot of people in the world will say that.
And the last time I was teaching also the companions Go, go to habitat. Go to have it. What is our mission is that a Muslim country is not a Muslim country, right? It's a non Muslim country, but the king is just in other words, the government is just
they give them freedom of religion. They can worship Allah freely go there. Take care of worship Allah, do the best that you can by representing Islam and the Muslims. There will come a time to love and take care of things when you come back to Mecca. There will come a time when everybody will be Muslim. You might not think so right now because everyone's being persecuted
But it's not moving towards
the goal, even a non Muslim country. So it shows that you It's okay we can go to number some some people, you guys living in a Catholic countries
they went to a non Muslim country but sometimes Muslim countries are worse, especially nowadays there's so many Muslim countries
that are worse than you. Yeah. And the thing is, many of the Muslim countries, people take this for granted, it's a culture, it's not a way of life.
So you CP, negligent in their obligations to US and Canada. At the same time, we're stronger, sometimes we're stronger. So this is the best place to be. And then so that's the first, they were strong. So I know, we don't have a lot of time. So I'm going to go to the next door. The first first story is about trials in your team. And the lessons in it, hold on to it. Because that's the most important thing you have, and a lot would take care of you don't worry, a lesson plan will take care of you hold on to it, the love will always be there Take care, just like he took care of the Southern Southern people who led to the cane.
And by the way, you know, as hammered calf, you know, the suddenly carbon, the southern sleepers, of elephants, elephants, they call them the Seven Sleepers. This isn't, you know, even in Christian tradition, and it was there was a day like in Europe, in Germany and other places that they used to have a holiday for these people. Right. And then when we came clear, that was also in our book, and it was actually much more clear. Their stories or their their their own stories were contradicted. They dropped that day.
They dropped the data is not celebrated anymore, but it used to be celebrated before and one of the things that will keep you strong, also, Allah Subhana tells us what's the best they can
Be patient with never seek good companionship. Be patient with those who seek the pleasure of their Lord calling upon him in the morning and nighttime, you know, seeking the pleasure of their Lord.
Another words, look for good companionship. And you're in a school college, you're choosing this college, college, make sure you have a strong NSA, make that be part of your decision. Also, you know, the factory or the community has to be strong. When we want to stay in insurance, a strong community where you can strengthen yourself. But if you can still worship and you can still influence others. But if your influence is so great, that you see that your children, you're losing your children and your if you're losing your deen, that maybe it's time to go,
then it's time to work. So for some people, it might be time to go
might be time to go to a different place where you can worship Allah freely and save your children also,
for some people,
it's hard to find a good place nowadays. You want to go to Mecca. If you can't do that either.
You want to go here then you can't do that either. So difficult.
You can go. If you go there, you can just live there. Because like, just like right now if you want to go live in the United States, you have Canadian citizenship, you can just go and just live there. You can just go live in France, slipped in
almost impossible to find a job that will save the person for
the job. So this is the first day.
The first thing is if you want to go to a different country
