00:01:00--> 00:01:34

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sado Alia will occur in Nabina Muhammad and while Allah He was happy he was adequate Salam. All prayers are due to Allah a lot of the world's peace and blessings be constantly showered upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the master of the first and the last, and upon his family, his companions and all those who call to his way, and establish his sunnah to the Day of Judgment. As to what follows my beloved brothers and sisters of salaamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:01:35--> 00:01:55

Alhamdulillah, we thank Allah subhanaw taala for the gift of life, and the opportunity to reflect upon His mercy, with the coming of the last Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. And we cannot thank Allah enough for the guidance, for the light in the time of darkness,

00:01:56--> 00:02:19

and for the understanding of what actually is happening in the world around us. And that is something special with the last prophet peace and blessings be upon him, that he did not come to his people alone, it did not come to the Arabs alone, but he came to all of humanity and the jinn.

00:02:20--> 00:02:51

And the message of last Quran is the divine connection is a divine communication with the Creator of the heavens and the earth, to the day of judgment. And so for all people, of all nationalities, all time periods, this is the final communication from the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And in the chaotic times that we are living in today,

00:02:52--> 00:03:03

the information we are looking for, is critical for us to understand not only what is to come, but what is happening now.

00:03:04--> 00:03:21

Because the advent of digital technology has caused a lot of confusion, especially with the younger generation, because there is cyberspace, a manufactured world that people are constantly looking at, and as the reality on the ground.

00:03:22--> 00:04:01

And in many cases, cyberspace is very much different than the world. And so it's very confusing for young people and sometimes frightening. And so we find today that there are a lot of people who are resorting to drugs, they're resorting to ways to escape the realities that they are facing. But we as the holders of the last message, have to face the world, we have to face the reality and this message gives us a connection, not only with this world, but the transition to the Hereafter.

00:04:02--> 00:04:08

And that is a way of reassurance for the hearts of the believers.

00:04:09--> 00:04:27

Also, we find today because of the nature of the world that we're living in, that people are thinking in terms of apocalypse. And we mentioned this before the concept of an apocalypse, a major disruption in the world

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

that is on the minds of people whether they believe in God or not.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

And you'll find that even in the movies, and in the in cyberspace, many of the projections are dealing with what happens after the nuclear holocaust. It's the apocalypse. So they're trying to even give an image of how people will live after the destruction. But what is frightening is that that destruction is actually

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

The close to us.

00:05:02--> 00:05:24

And we can see it being played out in the present confrontation with Ukraine and Russia. And with the nuclear capabilities that are there. And it's getting closer and closer, it's inching closer and closer to some kind of destruction, manmade destruction.

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

The other issue, which is something we can't forget, it's like an elephant in the room. And that is climate catastrophe.

00:05:37--> 00:06:11

That no matter what we think, no matter what our science is telling us, the climate has turned against us. Literally, the sun that is supposed to be a source of blessing to us, is causing us destruction, droughts. I have the water, which is the source of life. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us what Jehovah middleman equals a che in high that we have made from water, every living thing, the majority of our body, most of our body is made of water.

00:06:13--> 00:06:19

Water when you're in trouble when you're sick, that is the best cure right in the beginning, the purification,

00:06:20--> 00:06:53

increasing the strength of the cells that are in your body. But that same water can turn into destruction. And we see it being played out with the climate change affecting the heat in the world, the glaciers melting. Probably the most stark example of this is in Pakistan itself, which is still 1/3 underwater. And that is an international crisis, although it is being played out of the media.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

There is also a looming recession,

00:06:59--> 00:07:10

the economy's that we're supposed to be so strong, the dollars and the pounds. And the results and the monies that we use are in serious danger.

00:07:12--> 00:07:45

And so all of these issues is causing a type of nervousness in people apocalyptic thinking, and as we have discussed previously, the Christians the Jews have concepts of what will happen. What is the final countdown and Muslims to a great extent, do not get these teachings. We basically learn how to pray and how to fast and how to make salata Eid, but unless you're a student of knowledge,

00:07:46--> 00:08:16

the general understanding of the last days, Allah madrasah the signs of the coming of the hour, are not so well known. And so this course this set of meetings, is intended to try to bring light on this and to actually bring out some of the points trying using the most authentic authentic sources that we have to give us an understanding from our own point of view.

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

What is actually about to happen.

00:08:21--> 00:08:42

And so the final countdown, this is where we are at and this countdown this final hour, that will come the day of judgment however you want to call it. It is assurity and Allah subhanaw taala has told us in the Quran in Assa

00:08:43--> 00:09:04

T atone loughrea Buffy ha, well, I cannot tell the nurse let me know, Allah told us most surely the hour is coming. There is no doubt period, but most people do not believe. So, this is an interesting concept. This is something which is definite.

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

They even say in secular countries, the only thing that sure is in life is death and taxes.

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

So it's your but this Day of Judgment, this final

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

coming about it is assurity

00:09:22--> 00:09:22

and

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:26--> 00:09:50

also tells us the Hour has drawn nearer and the moon has split it terrible DISA when Shaka comma. So this is an incident that happened in the time of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. It is called the splitting of the moon and we will look at that even more but Allah says the Hour has drawn near.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

So it's close. There are some skeptics, even amongst the Muslims that say oh no, that's just a fear.

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

retell, we it's far away from us. But it is seriously close. And it is so close that Allah subhanaw taala has told us the event ordained by Allah will come to pass. So do not hasten it at our Amarula he further to stodgy Lu Subhanahu wa Taala Amma usually cool,

00:10:23--> 00:10:28

right? That Allah is saying, you know that the the the ETA Amarula

00:10:29--> 00:11:19

that this event, which is ordained will come to pass, so do not hasten it. And it's interesting because the way that Arabic is, and this is part of what is called Bulaga. And belaga is to study the imagery, the usage of the words, Arabic is a language. But this usage is a divine type of understanding that if you can read Arabic, if you think through the mind of an Arabic speaking person, this is going to do something to your head, right because it says an umbrella. So that's the past tense. That's not the present tense, we have to translate it, the our ordained will come to pass.

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

But Allah said eta Amarula is already came.

00:11:25--> 00:11:30

Because for Allah, the past, the present and the future, are the same.

00:11:32--> 00:11:42

But for us, we are in the present. And we're moving toward the future. And of course, the past is there.

00:11:44--> 00:12:02

And in terms of the relationship of Allah subhanaw taala. With time, Allah tells us in the seven years chapter, verse six and 07, verily they see it, meaning the torment far off, but we see it quite near,

00:12:03--> 00:12:15

in the home your owner who by Eden, when Rahu Caribbean, so they see it as far away, but we see it close. So it is right on us.

00:12:16--> 00:12:27

And this is something which is very important for people to understand about the message that is coming. And the Prophet SAW Selim,

00:12:29--> 00:12:48

in speaking to his companions, because they would ask him everything. And it asked him about when is the day of judgment, because Quran is talking about this witness. And the Prophet SAW Salem once said, what is left for you in comparison to the nations who came before you is like the time between ASA Priya and sunset?

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

Just the end of the day, because remember, the Islamic date begins after maghrib. Right?

00:12:55--> 00:13:10

That's when our calendar changes all the whole day now has gone from Madonna all the way to 5g That's the days that's part of the day. Right? And then from Fudger to Doha, and then to us and now that last little time after ASA

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

that's all that's left

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

is like we studied in when Ramadan comes some people

00:13:18--> 00:13:25

they sleep, they make Fudger if Allah has mercy on him, and they sleep, and they sleep all the way till the

00:13:26--> 00:13:38

end, if Allah has mercy, they get up and make them and then they go back to sleep. I lived in the Middle East, I've experienced this. Then they sleep from Doha to Lhasa.

00:13:40--> 00:13:51

Then after Assa, they get up now their their fasting day, but they spend their time making their juice and their samosas and you know, whatever. So that little time that's there between ASA and Margaret and think about it

00:13:53--> 00:14:23

is not much time. It's like a flash, especially here in Canada think about the time between us and Montana. For us, it's like a flash and the northern countries. Okay, so this is what he said. That's the imagery, right? It's imagery he's given you. And then he also gestured with his index and middle finger. Right? He said I and the hour have been set like this. Right and he showed his fingers. Right. That's all that's left.

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

Okay, so we're right on the time of the last day.

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

And

00:14:31--> 00:14:46

Allah subhanaw taala revealed Well, yes Aluna can we Yes. Aluna Canis, on a sa PL in nama al Maha Abdullah, Rama, you Rica, Elisa. Taku. Caribbean.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

Allah said, people ask you concerning the hour. So this is how some of the verses come. That Allah is saying to the Prophet, they're asking you about this right. So this is how the verse comes down.

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

So it says people ask you, oh Muhammad concerning the hour say, the knowledge of it is with Allah

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

What do you know?

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

It may be that the hour is near.

00:15:17--> 00:16:02

Okay, it could be close. And these are some other eyes if you want to have more references concerning but but there's a very interesting tradition that it's the Prophet SAW Salem was in Medina and he was sitting with his companions and a man came into the masjid and his hair was very black hat His clothes were sparklingly white. And he came into the mosque. And he said, went straight to the Prophet SAW Selim. Now there's a type of security that they had. Right. So when this foreigner is coming in, the prophet obviously gave a nod to Omar Nam. Okay, let him in. You know, and so, he comes right to the security and he put his knees to the Prophet's knees and looked him in

00:16:02--> 00:16:25

his eyes. That that's really strange. And it's strange because his clothes are white, sparkling white, because if you go from your house to the masjid, there's got to be dust on your clothes. But his clothes are extremely white. And he put his knees to the process, and put his hand and then he asked him, you know about What is Islam?

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

Okay, is asking them questions. What is Eman? What is faith? What is said,

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

What is righteousness? And the prophets answering?

00:16:37--> 00:16:47

And the man said, sucked. You're correct. And that was strange, too. Because how can the person say to the prophet that you're correct, is like he's your teacher.

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

Okay. And then he asked him better saw, when is the hour?

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Okay, this is our witness here.

00:16:59--> 00:17:02

And the province of Salam said that the questioner

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

knows more than the one being questions. In other words, you know, better than me.

00:17:10--> 00:17:16

So he's the Messenger of Allah receiving revelation from above seven heavens. But yet he's saying,

00:17:17--> 00:17:18

I don't know.

00:17:20--> 00:17:44

And it turns out, you know, this is the famous Hadith Jibreel. And it turns out that this was the angel Jibreel, who was speaking to the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him? So the Shah had here, the witness here is that we don't know. Nobody can actually say when it is, and there are some people who have made some speculations that have been made some of the great scholars a mama Tabari.

00:17:46--> 00:17:58

great scholar, you might know his tough CFFC Tabari in 500 Ah, right. He, you know, they, they were trying to make some sort of,

00:18:00--> 00:18:08

I guess, like an educated guess, as to when the hour would actually come. And

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

he

00:18:11--> 00:18:22

he speculated it's a couple 100 years. He wasn't sure, but Imam gelada Deena so UT. And he's a famous Egyptian scholar, 15th century.

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

An amazing scholar.

00:18:26--> 00:18:38

It's interesting. He said, It's the beginning of the 15th century after the Hijra. That's where we are now. Right? Because 1400s So ut thought it was his projection was what we're in now.

00:18:39--> 00:18:44

Now, he's only human being. And he doesn't know but it's interesting that so UT's prediction

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

is actually now but that does not necessarily mean it because in 1258 ad when the Mongols sacked Baghdad,

00:18:55--> 00:19:00

and they had been killing people, by the 1000s, destroying cities,

00:19:01--> 00:19:07

and even Alethia, the great writer, he said, I wish I was never born.

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

So I would not have to be the one who wrote this down.

00:19:12--> 00:19:27

What's actually what I'm seeing happening to the Muslims and they thought that it was the day of Jeju. They thought that the Mongols were using my Jewish Gog and Magog and we will be looking more what that is. They thought this is Gog and Magog

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

because Gog and Magog is supposed to like destroy and eat up everything right?

00:19:32--> 00:19:39

And the world had never seen a group of people do something like this on a scale that it was being done.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

But it wasn't

00:19:43--> 00:19:50

it wasn't some of them wrote it down but it wasn't because eventually the mom Luke stood in the path of the of the Mongols. The Mughal

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

defeated them, they gave them Dawa.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

And many of them embraced Islam.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

And some of them became

00:20:00--> 00:20:18

am heroes of Islam we even though the moguls of India, like are exempt and media moguls of India. Many of us right here now icons, it's in our names even in Guyana. We have we have hundreds right? So it's all over the place muslims

00:20:20--> 00:20:24

so it was not the day of judgment that's the point

00:20:25--> 00:20:33

even though it appeared so nobody can know exactly when it is. Okay. And but

00:20:35--> 00:20:58

what we do know and the Qur'an and chapter 47 Verse 18 It is telling us for how a young dude owner Elissa, and tattoo Johan Beratan, for Caja SRA to ha Allah. So, do they await anything other than the hour that it should come upon them suddenly, but some of its signs have already come.

00:21:00--> 00:21:10

Okay, so this here, this this is where the Dakota is now giving, you know and understanding it said I Schrott

00:21:11--> 00:21:48

that the signs have already come. Okay signs of Day of Judgment. And so I shot a PSA. And sometimes the word is used Allah madrasah. So if you're looking on your books, you can go to Bukhari and Muslim and tell me the, your authentic books, and you can actually look up chapters on the hour. If you have any of these things, just read it. Because you'll see a lot of information, there's too much information to bring in, in the short periods of time that we have. But it is serious. But some people would say, Okay, what's the purpose of this, we have to know how to make a lot.

00:21:49--> 00:22:01

Right, you got to pace the cat, you got to faster another, what's the purpose of this, the scholars have shown us that belief in these signs. It is part of the belief in Allah and His messenger.

00:22:02--> 00:22:25

So it is part of our faith. So that this is not something extra, all the Muslims should actually have this knowledge. Okay, and the the the fulfillment of the science, when you see a sign that is mentioned by the prophet seller seldom, okay, and you see it fulfilled, that will actually strengthen your faith.

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

And it will affirm the belief in the last day as well. It will strengthen the belief.

00:22:33--> 00:23:13

And the Prophet SAW Sanlam showed his companions, how to respond to the science. And this is partly what we need to know and some of these signs were given to people in advance. Like two examples I want to give you one is say a generous man, even your fan, brother, your loved one. This is a great time Khalifa who married two daughters of the Prophet SAW Selim, when had passed away, and he was promised paradise before his death. And he was promised because of a fitna calamity, he will see but that would strike him.

00:23:15--> 00:23:39

Okay. And so this is like a projection that the Prophet said about with men. And sure enough during his time, hey, great calamity, fitna rose up amongst the Sahaba and the tabby in there will confusion makers that came in Abdullah bin Saba, they were causing confusion amongst the Muslims. And it became a great fitna

00:23:40--> 00:23:50

and it was man Rhodiola Juan, he held the ground, no fighting in Medina, you know, he was a very calm, relaxed person, and eventually will el to be left.

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

He was assassinated. Right. So he was given

00:23:56--> 00:24:22

advanced warning. Okay. And he was given an advanced warning about something that would appear in the future. Another example of this, and this is a very interesting one. Are my vinyasa. radula one famous Sahabi and he was a young person when he embraced Islam. And one day the province of Salem, you know, took him he was giving,

00:24:23--> 00:24:28

you know, special attention to the youth. And he said Tama

00:24:29--> 00:24:40

you will be one day killed, you're going to be a Shaheed you're going to be a murderer, and you're going to be killed by the wrong oppressive group of people theater barrier.

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

They will kill you. Okay, so this was a projection. And so during that fitna, when the forces of Ali who had become the Khalifa after with men, and the forces of Maria,

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

who claimed to be the Khalifa and

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

thought that Ali was wrong. He should first find the killers of with man. That was his family member. Okay, the two forces were coming together

00:25:11--> 00:25:20

to actually fight each other. This is a fitna is a massive fitna. But Amar was on the side of ally

00:25:21--> 00:25:31

so when the battle came everybody on well, your side Assad was who had knowledge they were afraid they ran away from they wouldn't go near Amar right?

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

Because if somebody took his life the prediction would come through

00:25:37--> 00:25:41

that the oppressive side that your your presses, right?

00:25:42--> 00:25:57

You see, and sure enough, our Ma radiola one Rahim Rahim Allah, he was killed in this battle. Okay, which is part of the proof that the scholars show that the position taken by Maori as forces was wrong.

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

They repressive at that time.

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

And

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

it also gives you the knowledge of these signs

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

can also give you Sharia rulings

00:26:12--> 00:26:26

for your life. Now, this is another interesting one, especially for us in the north. And because we are living in the far north, and as we go toward winter, it will get so dark out that the sun is not going to come back.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

Okay. And then in the summertime, the sun is out all the time for like a couple of months. It never sets. So the people living in the north, they have a problem with Ramadan.

00:26:40--> 00:26:45

Okay, because if you're living in the summer, you're supposed to break your fast when

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

sunset sun didn't set.

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

It's not going to set for the whole month of Ramadan. So you got a problem. That means you're supposed to be fasting, right? No.

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

If you're living in the winter, you're okay. Right? You have Iftar all the time.

00:27:03--> 00:27:15

Because there's no sunrise, right? There's no, you stay in Iftar. Now, this is interesting, because in the time of the gel, the antichrist that we'll look at Inshallah, in the future,

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

the promise of Salam said, when, when the Antichrist appears,

00:27:21--> 00:27:28

he said that he will live for about 40 days, one day would be like a year,

00:27:29--> 00:27:56

another day will be like a month, another day will be like a week. And the rest of the days will be like your average days. So in that in a time of agile, he said, estimate the prayer times and work it up. If the ruler who kodra so in other words, you estimate, if you're into Giles time, it's total confusion with time, then you estimate the times of your prayers.

00:27:57--> 00:28:49

So you can make a calculation based on the most reasonable times. So I took a fatwa from the Canadian Council of Imams up into Inuvik, because there's a community in the Northwest Territories. And so I went to Inuvik, and the same thing was happening in Iqaluit with this fatwa that shows that they can use the most reasonable city. In other words, there's no print shop for them. So they could use Edmonton, Alberta, on the west, and on the eastern side, they can use Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, they'll use that so they take the pressure out of Ottawa, in Iqaluit in Nunavut. Right, and they'll use that even though it's dark outside to me, it was a shock to me when I was in Inuvik, because,

00:28:49--> 00:28:54

you know, we use the afternoon and also we're going for Mother's Day when the sun's outside.

00:28:55--> 00:29:02

So he says mom at a time and I'm saying, okay, so we made mother. after about hour and a half it says Isha.

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

But the Sun was outside, right.

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

And then after we prayed, we talked whatever I went to my room.

00:29:10--> 00:29:15

I looked at my watch. It was about two in the morning, the sun was outside.

00:29:17--> 00:29:24

After a couple hours, they knocked on my door, around 530 or so. They said, come for Fudger.

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

But the sun was up.

00:29:28--> 00:29:34

See, that's the midnight sun. So this is how the hola Ma. First figure this thing out.

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

It's by the knowledge of what would happen in the time of that job.

00:29:40--> 00:29:48

You see, some people even say you could use Mecca time you as a reasonable time, but I think what most people say is that

00:29:49--> 00:29:50

take the most reasonable thing you

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

either use and maintain or different community use Ottawa. Community uses Edmonton. Yeah, so I mean when you're on the way

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

So inside you will use Edmonton because that's the closest reasonable title. I mean, somebody will say if you want to get for the whole country, then use Winnipeg, because Winnipeg is like south central Canada.

00:30:13--> 00:30:41

Okay, six months daylight six months, nine, right. But Edmonton for the Innovate people and Wales net side, Yellowknife, whatever they use our Edmonton. That's the closest, but way out in the east is going to be different. Right So Otto is the time now who they fall evenly a man radiola one. He narrated that among the Hmong them the main fitness that will come the trials and tests

00:30:43--> 00:30:51

will be there'll be three fitness, three major disasters that will almost destroy everything.

00:30:52--> 00:31:05

And among them will be some that are like summer breezes. They come in and they go out. It's a fitness, it's a trial, but it comes in goes. He said, and the pro sallam said some of them will be minor.

00:31:06--> 00:31:50

And some of them will be major. I'm going to show you where these categories come from. So this comes from this is your Hadith. So some of the signs are going to be minus signs. And some of them are going to be major sites. So this is how the scholars divide the signs. Or the last days, this is your final countdown. Okay, so you're going to have minus signs. And you're going to have major signs. And generally, except for the some of the big major science, they're not cut in stone. I mean, it's not you know, that there's some understanding has to be but because there's so much that is out there. Okay. So in dealing with it, so this is your sign a shout out to sigh yet out Allah

00:31:50--> 00:31:57

Mata sa right? Minus signs, right? And then there are those fulfilled

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

and gone.

00:32:00--> 00:32:03

So there are some minus signs that have already happened.

00:32:04--> 00:32:12

And they're gone. Okay, then there are minus signs as well, that happened, but they repeat themselves.

00:32:13--> 00:32:17

So it happened in Islamic history. But then you're going to see it come back again.

00:32:18--> 00:32:32

And we know that this is the way history is, in a sense, it's a cycle, some things happen, and they start coming back again. So there's some of the signs, you can categorize them like that. Okay, then there are those that have not yet happened.

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

Okay, they didn't happen yet.

00:32:36--> 00:33:08

And that's another way, if you want to categorize the signs, this is a science right to understand this. And it's an area that most of the scholars, the common common regular average, Muslims usually don't have much understanding of this. And even amongst the scholars, there's a tendency not to deal with it. So much, it's there, but they don't deal with it. But the situation we're in today, is demanding that we know this science more. You need to know what's going on.

00:33:09--> 00:33:27

And especially good for the younger generation, because people get nervous and they say, what's going to happen to us? You know, are we all going to die tomorrow? If you know, if the Russians shoot a nuke, and then that one shoots back and we're all gonna die, we're all gonna die, then we say no, because the certain signs that have not come.

00:33:28--> 00:33:35

And if these signs have not come yet, then our heart is assured is not the Day of Judgment yet.

00:33:36--> 00:33:47

Okay, so this science is very important, in order to ease the nervousness that we have in our hearts concerning the last day.

00:33:49--> 00:34:11

Along with the minus signs, we have major signs, okay, and we'll delineate the different signs there. There are some which are packed with information. So I want to show you some Hadith that are packed with information now. Think about what's going on in the world as we go through this right.

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

And you can actually reflect upon some of the things

00:34:16--> 00:34:31

that's happening in the world around us. Imam Ahmed narrated that Akbar Ibn was one said, the messenger la Salam addressed us he praised and glorified Allah. And then he said, The world is nearly finished.

00:34:32--> 00:34:57

And he continued, and there is nothing left of it, but a little, like a little bit of water at the bottom of a vessel, which will soon be drunk. Think about that. So you have this jug is a little bit of water on the bottom. It's about to go. That's what the then the Prophet said, you are moving from this world to a world that has no end.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

So go to it.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

With the best you can

00:35:02--> 00:35:13

Okay, this is the intelligent person. You're moving from this limited world, what's at the bottom of the jug into one that's going to have no end to it? Right so start preparing,

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

you know for the end that is coming

00:35:17--> 00:36:05

and this knowledge was so serious for the companions. He was like a reality sometimes we will hear the Hadith and whatnot Of course he was the messenger Allah Salam he was he was right in front of them. So they took it serious and Abu Zaid Amma will act upset that the messenger Allah Azza wa sallam led fajr prayer, he then ascended to the member, he addressed us until the time of the law. So he made smarter version. And then he got on the member and he started talking all the way to law. Now think about us, right? The Juma has too long, right? Everybody's looking at their watch, right? So they all the way till then he came down. He prayed, though, right? And then they send it to the

00:36:05--> 00:36:08

member, and he addressed us all the way to Lhasa.

00:36:11--> 00:36:15

Then he ascended the member and addressed us until sunset.

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

Nobody moved.

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

Now, that's a serious

00:36:22--> 00:36:39

situation, right? Nobody moved. Now, the Hadith says he told us of what was to come. And the most learned amongst us is the one who had the best memory. I lamona Father, not

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

the one who memorize the most. He has the most knowledge of this, this is insane.

00:36:47--> 00:36:55

So think about where they were, that he was given them all kinds of signs. And they're trying to hold on to it as much as they possibly could.

00:36:57--> 00:37:02

Right and this is serious information. Okay. Now

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

another important

00:37:06--> 00:37:29

way to look at things that the province of Salem, he has been reported to have said, he said hastened to do good deeds. Before tribulations come like patches of a dark night. A man will be a believer in the morning and will be a disbeliever in the evening. He will be a believer in the evening and a disbeliever by the morning, and one of you will sell his religion for some trifling worldly gain.

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

Right? Your Buzina who Beata the admin of dunya.

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

Okay, another Hadith.

00:37:37--> 00:37:40

Now look at this now think about Ukraine war, think about

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

the Middle East.

00:37:44--> 00:37:49

Think about Asia, think about all the different things the fighting that's going on, especially today.

00:37:50--> 00:37:58

The process Saddam said by the one in whose hand is my soul, there will come a time when the killer will not know why he is killed.

00:38:02--> 00:38:09

The killer will not know why he killed and his victim will not know why he was killed. This is heavy.

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

They're fighting each other. And he's killing this person. He doesn't even know why.

00:38:17--> 00:38:33

Some of them say Well, it's because the President said are the UN this so you know what? They don't really know why. They just following orders. And the poor person who's killed they don't even know why they wire Why are you telling me? This is one of the signs of elastase.

00:38:35--> 00:38:49

Now that's one that's recurring, recurring, right? Thinking your categories, right? It happened. But in our time, it's probably worse than ever. Because you can literally sit there you know, on like a computer type of thing. And you send out a drone.

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

And you shoot these people down.

00:38:53--> 00:38:57

Right and then go back here and order some burger and fries.

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

Right? Why did these people die?

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

They don't know.

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

And it's narrated,

00:39:06--> 00:39:13

that the messenger la Salam said among the signs of the hour, how that knowledge will be taken away.

00:39:15--> 00:39:27

Okay, then another Hadith that said, the knowledge will be taken away by the death of great scholars. There are Allama there are some who are genuine scholars. And there are others who are teachers.

00:39:28--> 00:39:46

So In another Hadith is said, a lot of them are going to die. And in the past two decades, a lot of scholars have died. We just lost Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi Rahim Allah, big scholars are gone. Right and that knowledge is not going to come back that they had. Okay, the second point

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

ignorance will be widespread.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

Okay, and you can see the ignorance of the world that we're living in today. Think of the minds that are happening I mean, you know this tick tock

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

thing that they have. And some of these things that they do online and get a million hits views, drinking water or just scratching his head or, like doing anything, right? And they got a million views, right?

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

And I spent an hours looking at this.

00:40:19--> 00:40:27

Zina meaning adultery and fornication and wine to wine drinking will be widespread look at the world today.

00:40:28--> 00:40:30

Okay, it's not like before,

00:40:31--> 00:40:38

and the projection that is coming through the media. It's unbelievable.

00:40:39--> 00:41:08

And this is part of the reason why this is happening. And our generations I can say, you don't have to have been living the number of decades that how things have changed when I was young. We used to watch this movie program in America called I Love Lucy. Right? Some of the old people know the old man, I Love Lucy. I Love Lucy. According to the rules of Hollywood, Lucy and her husband could not lay in the same bed together on the program.

00:41:09--> 00:41:18

So you never see a scene with Lucy and her husband in bed. Never because not allowed to show that

00:41:19--> 00:41:31

and dig all these programs. Now look at what's happening in the in the regular movies. It's like what we would call before x x x x x. Children Are Watching these things.

00:41:32--> 00:41:36

And they even watch it sometimes in the form of cartoons.

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

They're actually being bombarded with this

00:41:43--> 00:41:51

right? You see all kinds of strange things that are going on the Hadith 10 continues and it says

00:41:52--> 00:41:56

men will be few and women will be many.

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

To the extent that 50 women

00:42:00--> 00:42:07

they will be 50 women, there will only be one responsible man to look after them.

00:42:08--> 00:42:11

Okay 50 to one.

00:42:13--> 00:42:20

Now, many would say obviously this thing just didn't happen right. But you see the word here it says Khayyam.

00:42:21--> 00:42:46

It didn't say Rachel. It said for 50 women they will be payment Wyatt aquarium is the Quran is saying I'll reach out couloir Munna Allah Nisa that men have authority, they they responsible, they pay from their wealth. They take care of their family. That's, that's the claim. Right? So if you're just a man, that doesn't mean you're responsible man.

00:42:47--> 00:42:55

You see, see the difference between a man there's a lot of men running around. They're, they're masculine, but they're irresponsible.

00:42:56--> 00:43:02

So this is saying there's going to come a time when 50 Women is only going to be one responsible man.

00:43:04--> 00:43:21

And we have all kinds of confusion going on with men anyway. As to who they really are. Everything's gone, gone crazy, right? But this one, we can still say in this hadith, it's got sort of like a combination of things. Because we can't honestly say that this has come about yet.

00:43:23--> 00:43:38

Maybe in some countries, it's reached that point of irresponsibility. Right but this is how you start to break when you go to your Hadith books. Go to your Bukhari and Muslim look at the signs of the hour, right? Go through it and read some of these you're gonna see some interesting things, what's going on outside.

00:43:40--> 00:43:43

Now, this one here is also extremely interesting.

00:43:45--> 00:44:01

Abu Huraira ready Aloha narrated that the messenger Allah Azza wa sallam said, the Hour will not come until two large groups fight one another. And a great number of people will be killed, and the claim will be the same.

00:44:02--> 00:44:09

Now, the scholars say that this was fulfilled in the fitna that happened in the forces of Ali and Maria,

00:44:11--> 00:44:13

because both sides said they're Muslim, right.

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

So from way back, then,

00:44:17--> 00:44:20

the scholars say this, this one is fulfilled.

00:44:21--> 00:44:26

So their claim will be one, then it said,

00:44:27--> 00:44:35

and, and 30 Leia prophets will raise their heads, all of whom claim to be the messenger of Allah.

00:44:37--> 00:44:43

Right, that's the next one dirty liar prophets. Now we have done some studies about this.

00:44:44--> 00:45:00

To count it's hard to say, you know, the actual 30 have come yet. Right but this 30 Leia prophets are supposed to come this is a person now who is claiming he is a messenger of Allah, like we know, Ghulam Ahmed of India, right. We know

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

or Elijah Muhammad of a nation of Islam of America. Right Of course will say Lima, if you go back to the prophets time you remember me say Lima and

00:45:11--> 00:45:26

Oblast what is NC, you know, so there is such, there are a number that happened in but throughout history, but this is saying there's got to be 30 that come before the Day of Judgment, okay. Then it says until knowledge is taken away,

00:45:27--> 00:45:30

earthquakes become frequent

00:45:32--> 00:46:03

Time passes quickly. Now that one we can bear witness to look how fast time is going. You just turned around and seemed like a Juma has gone to the tribulation meaning fitten fitna becomes prevalent and killing becomes widespread, okay, until wealth becomes widespread among you and will increase so much that a wealthy man will be concerned as to who will accept his charity

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

and the one to whom it is offered will say I do not need it.

00:46:09--> 00:46:44

Now, this you can say it may not have been some say that during the Ambassade period, the time of Haroon Rashid, and certain points and this doesn't mean everywhere in the world. But within his area, there was so much being given out to the people, they even say in a time of Omar bin Abdulaziz. Or the law he was made, they say they say is the is like the fifth rightly, Gary Keller, so much the cat was being given out that people didn't even need it. But Allah knows best whether this has actually come about.

00:46:45--> 00:46:47

Okay. And it said

00:46:49--> 00:46:53

until people will compete in building tall structures.

00:46:54--> 00:46:57

Okay, that's the world we're living in today. Look at the competition

00:46:59--> 00:47:17

until a man will pass by a grave, and we'll say where that I were in his place. That's serious. And some of the wars and destructions going on life has become health. War is hell and those who are living through it,

00:47:19--> 00:47:26

this is recurring. So this pile of debt is it is recurring. Okay. And

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

and then it says until the sun rises from the west.

00:47:33--> 00:47:53

Okay, sun rising. From the west, there are some scientists that are even saying the Earth is actually changing on its axis, the slight changes that are happening on the axis, but that hasn't happened yet. Okay. And when it rises, and the people see it, they will all believe.

00:47:54--> 00:48:12

But that will be the time when belief will not avail them anything if they did not believe before or their faith did not earn them anything good. Okay, so this audit is packed with information, you can unpack this and try to see where these are the same.

00:48:13--> 00:48:26

Now they're interesting when we're looking, we're looking at minus signs. And it's narrated that the promises solemn said, among the signs of the Hour will be obscenity, swearing, right.

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

And obscene actions.

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

Okay, look at look at how the people swear. Now, some of the things in the language of our children today

00:48:38--> 00:48:42

that they say I would never have said this when I was young.

00:48:44--> 00:48:46

Right, but it's an irregular language now.

00:48:47--> 00:49:11

And I'm not going to go through some of the words that they're using. But they'll use it in their regular language, and obscene actions. Okay, and the severity of family ties, families, people don't care about their family anymore. So they'll cut ties with their family. That's becoming more and more prevalent amongst us. And that is a shock for us, for people living in the West.

00:49:13--> 00:49:20

As society has been broken up for a long time, but many Muslims coming from the Muslim world. Were families were tight.

00:49:21--> 00:49:33

Right and then coming here, and a new generation coming up. And even family members fighting each other over materials. There's every almost everybody can see how families are breaking down.

00:49:34--> 00:49:40

Okay, it's a sign of the last days. The trustworthy will be accused of dishonesty.

00:49:42--> 00:49:48

Okay, and the dishonest trust it Okay, look at the world today.

00:49:49--> 00:49:56

Go on the television go who's who's the leaders that are leading us? And the people who are trustworthy they look at you like you're a fool.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

Okay, so this is

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

packed. There's another one that's packed.

00:50:03--> 00:50:14

Okay. And as reported the process on them said, among the sides of the Hour will be that the people will try to outdo one another in building masjids.

00:50:16--> 00:50:30

Now, of course, this one isn't very interesting. This picture I took in Abu Dhabi. You're the big match and Abu Dhabi, right. I think that one is probably one of the most beautiful places,

00:50:31--> 00:50:53

you know, that have ever been in physically to say, Sheikh Zayed mosque? Right, have you been there? But that mosque is so but the problem was, I was with this Egyptian brother, father, so the man, you know, so then we were in the masjid and all this, that the Quran is like talking to you and everything, and, you know, looking at it in there, he's looking at me and say, I can't make that name.

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

I can't make salad. Because you're so

00:50:58--> 00:51:12

taken up, you know, by by the, by the beauty of the masjid, the things that they have done, and you look at the colors that are there, you know, and you look at the posts, and you see these colors, that's not paint. It's stones,

00:51:13--> 00:51:18

cheese, Jade, and all turquoise, and inlaid stones, not paint.

00:51:20--> 00:52:01

Okay. And they are trying to outdo each other. Everybody's trying to do even a country like Algeria. And Algeria, although it has a great history of Muslims. It became very secular in the colonial period. When they gain their independence, their socialist committees came in, and they fought off the Muslims. But Algeria right now is building a huge budget. And they want it to be the biggest one of the biggest in the world. Even in Algeria, because Morocco has one too in Morocco. You go to Catholic King Hassan mosque in Casablanca, which is a beautiful Masjid. Right? That one, you know, is one of the biggest in the world.

00:52:02--> 00:52:06

Right? So everybody's trying to get what's the latest.

00:52:07--> 00:52:11

Everybody wants to get the biggest, you know, masjid and they're competing with each other.

00:52:12--> 00:52:43

To build a so this that's a sign is definitely fulfilled. Okay. Now, this is a descriptive Hadith, I would say and this is where the, if ibn Malik Rhodiola one, he said, I came to the Prophet SAW Salem during the campaign of Tabuk. That is when they were going to fight the Romans. Okay, when he was in a leather tent, and he said, count six things before the hour. See how he was given things to people.

00:52:45--> 00:52:47

He said, Count 66.

00:52:48--> 00:52:50

One, he said my death.

00:52:51--> 00:52:53

That's a big sign of the last day.

00:52:54--> 00:52:58

Next, the conquest of beta Magnus Jerusalem.

00:53:00--> 00:53:06

Then widespread death, which will come upon you like moraine in sheep,

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

not COVID-19

00:53:11--> 00:53:12

widespread deaths.

00:53:13--> 00:53:26

That one actually happened in the title of the sahaba. Because during Umar's time, there was a terrible plague. And Abu Zubaydah Evangel radula on he actually died during this click.

00:53:28--> 00:53:29

Then an abundance of wealth,

00:53:30--> 00:53:36

such that even if a man is given 100 denas He will remain angry and discontent

00:53:38--> 00:53:44

because you gave him 100 Dina's? I mean, I remember that we know we had a community center

00:53:45--> 00:53:50

on Western road. And we opened up a food bank.

00:53:51--> 00:54:05

And so people in Toronto were in need of food. And so then, now, hundreds of people were coming to our food bank, and it was like a United Nations, you know, line right here in Toronto. And one day I came in,

00:54:06--> 00:54:49

and this man was there with his family. And he was saying, Well, you know, I heard that I heard the Saudis have given money. So he's in law, he got a nice leather jacket on right? But he's in line with the food bank. Then one of the families came up you know, and they were asking for food and you know, our workers are trained to interview you. So they see your father wife, three children. And okay, we have rice you know, we have the foods that Muslims want, right? So they want chickpeas they want you know, ghee oil, you know, rice whatever. So we give them a certain amount. So then they gave this family rice and and the man said, no, no, no, no, basmati rice.

00:54:50--> 00:54:54

He said basmati don't give me regular rice.

00:54:55--> 00:54:57

You see what happened? Right?

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

Right. So

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

This is this man here. He's given 100 dinars and he's angry.

00:55:07--> 00:55:11

That's not enough money. That's one of the signs of the last days.

00:55:12--> 00:55:22

Then a fitna, which will leave, which will not leave any house among the Arabs, but it will enter it. This is deep.

00:55:23--> 00:55:24

This is deep.

00:55:25--> 00:55:30

The Arab world, you could say, starts in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:55:31--> 00:56:12

And it goes up into Iraq and all that area, Syria and all that. And then North Africa, Egypt, across North Africa, down into the Sudan, you know, Yemen, you know, this, this is like, you could say, the Arab world in the sense, okay, now, fitna is a trial or tribulation, you know, a terrible test, you know, they said, every house of the Arabs is going to be hit by this. Now, look what happened in our time, you have a thing called the Arab Spring. Remember the Arab Spring. And this is when Arab countries were rising stars in Tunisia. And then you know, people are rising up all over the place. Okay. And then massive repression. And then also remember, September 11,

00:56:14--> 00:56:18

September 11, anybody who was Arabic speaking,

00:56:20--> 00:56:21

was in trouble.

00:56:22--> 00:57:03

So every is you could say, in a sense, because now we're dealing with technology, we're dealing with digital technology. So all the houses have televisions, or a cell phone or radio, everybody is affected by this, every single house amongst the Arabs, even the Bedouins out in the desert of watching the TV or something like that. Okay, so you could say that, in a sense, this one is could have been fulfilled, even in our times more than the other times? Because the other time somebody would say, Well, how can you say this? Because there are some people were living in St. Lucia, or some Arabs were living, you know, in other parts, that they're not the same. But now it's not this

00:57:03--> 00:57:09

now everybody is connected. In this digital world.

00:57:10--> 00:57:15

Then it says a truce between you. And Benny, as far

00:57:16--> 00:57:25

as far meaning yellow or white, meaning the Romans that's how they used to describe the Romans, as as far right as white or yellow.

00:57:26--> 00:57:36

Which they will, they will break it. And we'll come to you with AD badness. And each of which will be 12,000. Troops.

00:57:37--> 00:57:42

Okay, what is this? People are looking for the signs, you remember the Gulf War?

00:57:43--> 00:58:02

You remember when they were attacking Iraq, and the nations were coming? All types of you? I'm a European, I'm an American, I'm this. They were all coming with their soldiers, Canadian troops. Were there. Everybody's they're sending somebody. Okay? The hadith is saying at bannos 12,000. Troops, okay?

00:58:03--> 00:58:39

Whether that is it, Allah Allah knows best. But do you see this this good, this is going to tell you what's going to happen, right? So we're not going to be shocked by the events that are going on in the world around us. This is an Sahih Muslim. Okay. So, you can see with this, that we have a lot to unpack. And we want to Inshallah, in the coming periods to look at the different categories of the sites, we want to look at those that have happened. You know, we want to look at those that have happened. They are reoccurring,

00:58:40--> 00:59:28

those that are present day, some that have not happened yet, minus sites. After this, we want to go into the major sites, because this will now lead us right toward Judgment Day. This is the final countdown. So for us, the final countdown is broken up into the minus signs and into the major signs. It's a science, and we need to understand, you know the signs for what is going on because I believe and Allah knows best in the next year or two years decade. We're going to see some strange things in this world. If those atomic bombs go off, right, you're going to see you talk about hurricanes. You talk about floods, earthquakes, they're waiting for the big one. In California.

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

They're waiting for the San Andreas fault to literally go down.

00:59:35--> 00:59:42

They've been saying that for a long time I went to school in Portland, Oregon, this is back in the you know way back in the in the 70s and they were waiting for it.

00:59:44--> 00:59:59

Now, they're also waiting for a tidal wave and it's set to come from the side of Africa and the cape Verdi's if earthquake happens, a major tidal wave is going to hit the whole east coast is

01:00:00--> 01:00:07

Allow me a tsunami, a massive so much tsunami. They're waiting for this. Now, could you?

01:00:08--> 01:00:14

Yeah, well, Africa in a sense, it's this with earthquakes going to be. So it's the Atlantic from that side.

01:00:15--> 01:00:21

Now, could you imagine if a tsunami of epic proportions strikes the East Coast?

01:00:22--> 01:00:26

Think about America, what that is Canada, America, especially America. That's it.

01:00:28--> 01:01:05

That's it, the infrastructure, things are going to be broken down. And things can change overnight. Right. So we have to know what's going on. We have to be well aware of what is happening before the day of judgment. So we've, we've started to unpack this information. And you may have questions, write them down. We're going to have some time. Now if anybody has any questions about anything they've heard, we're unpacking a lot of information. But try to follow it up, try to get books on the last days, yourself. There's a number of books translated into English given criteria. It's got a beautiful one on the sides of the last days.

01:01:07--> 01:01:21

So you try to get it, but the floor is open for any questions. And we want to see online with our brothers and sisters online. If there's anybody who has any questions. So let's look at the chat. And see. Are there any questions?

01:01:22--> 01:01:22

Floors?

01:01:24--> 01:01:27

We're seeing people compete

01:01:28--> 01:01:30

is also on something Brandon says.

01:01:32--> 01:01:33

Building

01:01:34--> 01:01:36

tall structures. Yeah.

01:01:38--> 01:01:46

That's right, because the Saudis were better ones. The colleges were Bedouins, if you go back 50 years, 4050 years. They were backwards.

01:01:47--> 01:01:51

And then they competed. They competed. And now look at the liquid anyone.

01:01:53--> 01:01:59

Look and look at the size of the other towers that they're building. When you fly over to Bay, and look down,

01:02:00--> 01:02:04

it's unbelievable. Even the clouds is sticking up out of the clouds and stuff.

01:02:05--> 01:02:09

It's unbelievable. And they will once Bedouins the very simple life.

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

Okay, but that's the competition.

01:02:14--> 01:02:21

The other general questions anybody had anything online? And the questions are so far floor is open or any final questions anybody has.

01:02:28--> 01:02:35

So, we have we have unpacked and Inshallah, next week, we will look at the signs which have happened,

01:02:36--> 01:02:38

the signs which have happened.

01:02:39--> 01:03:11

And then we will go on into some of the other major signs. And there's some very interesting information, which is not so well known by the average community, Muslim community and it should be known by everybody. Because things are happening in front of us. some really strange things are about to happen. And we need to know where we stand as believers. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from the fitna of the last days and protect us from any evil that might strike. You know, our children and our community.

01:03:12--> 01:03:24

I leave you with these thoughts Akula Holy hell that was stuck for Lolly welcome. Waka Juana hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
