00:00:00--> 00:00:00

The level

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

of hunger, the level of anatomy. So that was Ramana also the lead mother and he or psyche,

00:00:09--> 00:00:54

or praise and thanks for lympstone, Mosul, Panama, and made a piece of listening of a love beer on the seventh and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stalfos, we've reached to the beginning of this story of us hybrid guff from one of my other Co Op. And just before this the last day, I was not an episodic and will help a lot. So he ended the introduction by saying we narrate onto the story will help with truth and accuracy in precise detail. And you'll see exactly what kind of precise detail Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us, he says, then unknown Fifth Avenue will appear. No doubt about it. They were young men that believed in the Lord. The idea is that later on

00:00:54--> 00:01:11

maybe some amount of money or something is going to recite the Sula to a group of Christians and to the Jews as well. So this is the weight loss diet, I kept the Christians in contact with the story, the fact that he said to

00:01:12--> 00:01:54

him, they were young men that believed in the Lord. The Jews would say, yeah, keep going, we agree with you so far, right? Because to them, they love us, Jesus, therefore, the Christians, their Lord was Jesus. So Daddy, for now they can keep hearing this story in the interest of being they believed in the law. Muslims are saying that they believed in the law. And the Jews say, the Christians say that they believed in Jesus. And it's all good, we will give you our ears and we'll keep hearing and as I said to you, the first five are just an introduction. So things are really vague. Now later on allows origin will tell us who exactly is the club that will become clean? So I don't know will I be

00:01:54--> 00:02:35

him? Was it never more that and once they have believed that they committed and they accepted this belief inside of them, and they convinced about it, then after this, Allah subhanaw taala, increased them in, in guidance, and that exactly the whole soul will be explaining what kind of guidance did Allah subhana wa Taala guide for them, how the sun was guided to work for them how the sun did them a favor, and how everything around them did them a favor, as well as they were sleeping in that cave for most of their life. So now, long story short, he says, What about my APU beam? Now Now what is happening is, as I mentioned to you that the city with the very oppressive Pirate King at the time,

00:02:35--> 00:03:21

they worship idols, and they worship statues. And these young men, they were still upon the pure, authentic version of the deed of resolve. So this still holding upon a llama, and they haven't turned their back away from this one. And, and basically, the king and the community worship idols, every now and then they worship. And these young men are never to be found worshipping idols. So some people dumped them into the king into the court system of the of the of the community. And what happened is that the king found out he got really upset, he got really angry. And so he's going to bring them into trial with these young men. And of course, he sends after him, the guards, the

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

soldiers, they go, they grab them. And now, a couple of young men are being dragged into court, really nervous and terrified and scared, and the whole community gathers to see what kind of new rule is going to happen. And by the way, as they're going to court, the the judge is going to be the king, because at the time, the king was always the judge. So he's going to be the judge. And the depth of the verdict is known, it's going to be the death sentence, because they've refused the religion of the community and the state itself. So the sentence is going to be death. But death row, there's no argument about this. And now they're being dragged by the soldiers inside of this court,

00:04:04--> 00:04:45

you can just expect and understand how nervous and frightening and shaken they are, like right now, you know, maybe a teenager is outside on the street in his car is driving, you know, being he sees himself on the overdrive. And then if the police wants to pull him over, you know, what kind of attitude would he give? How would he talk and explain himself to Nova Nova Stein, right, because some authority or someone that is higher than you has pulled over for a mistake, and you might cop a serious consequence for it. So these brothers, these young men, they're not only they're not just going to serve 10 months in prison or running in prison. This is that sentence. So this is some

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

serious stuff. And you're going to expect that as they walk in, and they told Explain yourself, when we're going to expect that these people are going to apologize, and they're going to be remorseful and it's alright, look, please forgive us and we're going to go worship the idols.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Now, maybe that's what we would have expected. So we might have a soldier now, he tells us that they were nervous. And he tells us that they were frightened and they were shaking. So he says, Well, I won't allow Peruvian, we tied on their hearts, meaning we gave their heart strength, and firmness and courage and braveness and confidence in verbal when they got up in the court. And now the king is saying to them, like, explain yourselves. Why do worshiping idols, get up and explain yourself? How they get up, if possible, and they were terrified. But Allah azza wa jal gave them strength, and firmness, adequate obedience, their heart is Cabo de Europe all together. And now they're going to

00:05:41--> 00:06:24

explain themselves for who they all said, this is a plural all of them are seeing at the same time, or buena, was some llt. A lot of this is the first part. They said, Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens in the earth. Now when he said, a man will be on a beam, they believed in the Lord. Now it's been explained what Paul did they believe in now. Now the Jews and the Christians cannot agree with this part of the of the story, but a lot of associate makes it clear, they get up and they say, Our Lord, is the Lord of the heavens in the earth. How long? Do you think that is enough? To explain yourself, the kind of strength The Lord gave them, get them going? Let him know, do I mean God Illa,

00:06:25--> 00:07:07

we will never call anyone besides him an inner, and they kept going local corner, either shop or in that case, if we do call someone besides him in a lab, we would have said something outrageously stupid. Yeah, and with that, it's like they're saying that the king is stupid. In other words, this is what they're doing, Danny, number one, Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. On top of that, we will never quote assigned to Manila. On top of that, if we do that, we would have said something incredibly stupid and outrageously stupid. In other words, you can yo yo, you're one of these people, a lot of stupid parent a lot. They're not done yet. They turn to the people now they

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

ignore the king. And they look at their people and they see

00:07:10--> 00:07:21

these people that have been gathered to see how sentence and to witness what's going to happen to us, oh, Buddha, these are our people. These are our people. It does a woman do Li

00:07:23--> 00:07:30

they took and they worship a lord beside him. Right? It doesn't mean God knows.

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

How come they don't come up with any clear evidence. And in other words, the boys are saying,

00:07:38--> 00:07:58

Why are you putting us on trial? These people should be put on trial, what kind of evidence you have to worship the idol outside. You're the one that's supposed to be on trial. Notice we have every proof for worshiping the Lord that we're worshipping. some incredible words being any set in this courtroom? No, no, do not at some point in being feminine.

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

out of money can the man who could be more wrong than the one who invents and fabricates a lie against the love that in other words, no one is more wrong than whoever invents a lie against the law. In other words, now they have just said to the entire community or liars, and you people worship of faith that you and your king are all the same. They are wanting their people, they say you're scared of this king, about being scared of the king of the heavens and the earth. Right? Where is your proof for doing what you do? So this is your initial Panama braveness and courage that Allah subhana wa tada gave them. And now they're done explaining themselves.

00:08:37--> 00:09:12

For now, obviously, you'd expect that the death sentence is handed. They've just made a mockery out of the king in front of the presence of the entire community. And they have called him stupid in front of the entire community. This is not something that is going to pass like this with no don't get any consequence. So now, before the death sentence can be carried out and taken to prison for a while just so that you don't need some formal formalities can finish then they'll think about in front of the community and they'll begin to basically execute them. So they are taken into prison.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

And as they're in prison,

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

somehow they managed to escape.

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

And they escaped this prison and they begin to walk. And this conversation they have as they exit prison, Allah subhanaw taala recorded in the Quran. There is no doubt that there was no one there to hear except Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he says that these young men spoke to each other. They've just left prison. And a lot of sense what India doesn't do move, speaking to each other now, and they seem to each other. When you get far away from them. It doesn't move the same. Look, we just we just left the prison now. We're still in the vicinity. We're still in the city when we get far away.

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

From the people from the soldiers from the authorities, when we get far away from the community and we've left the town, then Allah says what? Maryam buena Illallah.

00:10:11--> 00:10:44

When you've gone far away from the people, then head towards the cave. But in between that Allah said one mega Bududa in Milan, this is probably going to be the most amazing listen in the entire solar. One day I will do a llama. Now, I'm going to translate to you the first part. And he told me if it makes sense, literally, this is what's being said. And when you get far away from them, comma, they worship number one comma, then go to the cake. That makes sense. But that's how they

00:10:45--> 00:11:27

were really, really the error is what you get to move in that gap. That's the air. But there is an interjection in the middle. And it says one I buena Illallah. Let me explain this concept to you. This in Arabic is known as a Joomla turabian. In other words, it's a sentence within a sentence. The purpose of it is a muzzle pattern with either expressing his honor and his love for these people. I'll give you an example. Let's say I'm going to give you a lesson about Medina. And let's say as well that I love and Medina so much that this is how I gave you them as I said to your brothers and Medina. Man I love that place.

00:11:28--> 00:12:03

is the city of the beloved missing just on the loneliness sallam. Now what is my sentence my sentence is, and Medina is the city of the beloved messenger, salallahu alayhi wasallam. But what did I add in between? I added, man, I love that city. In other words, I sit in Medina. And I was so overwhelmed with this word, I couldn't continue to express except that I express how much I love this place. Until I literally couldn't continue, except that I and I that I see how much I love this place, then I moved on. So what is happening with love one of them is that

00:12:05--> 00:12:50

when you get this blue, one is recording the conversation to each other. And they seem to each other when you get far away from the people in the city, then a lot pause. And then he he expressed his honor and his love to these people. And he said one I love these people, they worship number law. Now he continued their compensation for you know, go go to the cave go towards the cave. And he's had a lot It is something that is really, really profound. I mean, these, these people are fit. And we said young men, in other words, TJ teenagers in the early teenage years, that's a fifth year. And you know, as a fifth year, or as a person in mind, you have two paths, you can either take a path of

00:12:50--> 00:13:21

freedom, and that is now what's freedom. Do whatever you want, eat whatever you want, sleep, whatever you want. Wake up whenever you want, hang out with whoever you want, do whatever you want. That's a path of freedom. And there's another path, it's the path of restriction. And you're restricted by certain things. You got to wake up at a certain time, sleep at a certain time. Eat certain things, avoid certain things. You got to worship at certain times that restriction as a young man, what are you more likely to choose? The path of freedom or restriction

00:13:22--> 00:14:06

of freedom? People think the path of freedom, but Allah azza wa jal, he expresses his love towards the people by saying even though they had that path, they didn't decide to choose it. They decided to go to court, a court that's opposite to freedom. They decided to go to prison prison as options of freedom. They decided now to head towards a cave. Again, that's opposite freedom. They did all this for the sake of Allah, Allah. He's very proud with that very proud moment. So he mentions this story. And he says that they said to each other when you get far away from the city, I was stopped. And he said that these people worship mumble Allah, this is like expressing his love and his honor

00:14:06--> 00:14:15

towards these people. Then he continued, they said to each other fat oulanka turn towards the cave. They said

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

this is different to say.

00:14:19--> 00:14:45

Finn, Gan Finn would have been turned towards a cave, any cave, we had no idea where we're going. But that wasn't said, they said turn to the cave. Number words they know the caves that you've been there. And remember last week, we mentioned that that is the cave they used to go there more than once. However rocky in the history there are people that book like the Quran that they used to worship a lot. They used to revise their DNA. So now

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

they're running and you know, what are you going to expect them to think? We're going to go towards a cave, we're going to enter a cave. What are we going to do with it? How long are we going to survive in it? Is there food in there is the ordering that ensures those things

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

There's no website, there's no spiders in that. How am I going to stay in a cave phone? They didn't think like that. They didn't even speak like that, as they're heading towards the cave. And

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

he mentions he was about 10 kilometres away from the city.

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

They said to themselves, listen to this, they said, we're in a young short Lego mirrabooka

00:15:23--> 00:16:15

where you hate Lego Miss America, Morocco. They said, Let's head towards the cave. A love would shower us with His mercy. And she will let open a book on the romantic drama that you hate Lego man America, aka Mr. social change and mold our situation. So that he makes it easy and comfortable for us. mill fuck. It comes from the word murfin. And a monster is a pillow. And it comes from word of mouth. He is a friend, that kind of friend that you can lean on like he can use like a pillow, you find comfort and ease with him. This is This is amazing. A couple of boys are looking at a cave that is jagged and harsh, in its condition, sharp, darkness, gloomy inside. And they saw it as a source

00:16:15--> 00:16:59

of mercy. They said we'll walk in there. And Allah would shower us with His mercy. You know, and I'm alone would make it a pillow for us, who looks at a piece of rock and says it's going to be a pillow for him. In other words, this is teaching us Muslim one believed that these young men had Crystal bombilla that even in the worst of situations, you're coming to a dead end in your life right now. behind you is the community they're about to kill you. In front of you. There's a cave, a loved one and what's inside of it. And they can still see it and manage to be certain and convinced themselves that will most of what data is going to show his mercy upon us. And that the cave is going to be a

00:16:59--> 00:17:24

pillow for us. If you walk on a bit of stone on the earth there, what happens you scream from and if you want to walk on some stone barefoot? What happens? You know, how uncomfortable is that? These people are about this sleeping inside of a cave, or marijuana what's inside. And before they get there, they convince that this is going to be the best sleep they have in there. This is

00:17:26--> 00:18:12

not a single doubt in our last panel what that are all. And you know the other interesting thing is from the language perspective, they said you're short and you hate and these two verbs, they have a sukoon at the end, the only this is called the inner state of Shazam. Let me explain to you this. In Arabic. You cannot just put a spoon at the end of a fad like that. At the end of a verb you cannot just put a spoon. You're supposed to have Obama by default. So the idea we were expecting yet shuru la cama de la COVID. America, America didn't come like that. It came in an abnormal way. I'm sure so cool. And then sukoon in Arabic, it's called elitism. And interestingly enough, just mean Arabic

00:18:12--> 00:18:56

means certainty. Yeah, and he just, they were certain that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to shower them with his mercy, no doubt at all. What you're learning my brother Yanni, that when you get the point in life, in whatever you're facing in life, always have personal bumbler, the believer, whatever you see is he can see it must have had about his mercy through it. And in the hobby, it comes to teach us that other endeavors need one now TV for the only measure, I add to my service as he thinks you think good, you'll only see good, you think bad, all you'll get is bad from a loss of data. So be careful how you think with the most amount of data. And these young men, I'd

00:18:56--> 00:19:05

be interested in their Dean, not in their junior and this is the worse kind of fit they'll ever be tested in life is to be tested in your deep

00:19:07--> 00:19:12

in your DNA, and they still look out firm and look how positive they are. In short, like I'm going to book of my life by the way.

00:19:13--> 00:19:40

America maraca Bismillah they get up the mountain and they head towards the cave and they go inside of this cave. They walk inside. And at the beginning of the story I told us that as soon as they entered the cave, what did they say? It all fit into that gap. What did they say? For a better dinner bin Laden kawamata let them in America, Russia at the beginning. It's in the trailer that it's not mentioned now. So they sit there

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

and now they're about to put their heads down to sleep. This has been a long day for them in the court. Then they ran this entire distance 10 kilometers until they reach the cave. So long distance within our vessel the love on reserves. The Karaka for water now they entered the cave at the end of the first hour of the day.

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

In other words, like a bulletyme. So it's been a long day now, you'd expect to be exhausted, tired, shaken, worried from the inside, but full of certainty and hope that Allah subhanho data will take care of this situation. So they are about to put their heads down to sleep, they put their heads down in the middle of the cave to sleep.

00:20:18--> 00:20:59

And they sleep upon that sincere intention. They sleep the last thing they said was a lot. A lot better at dinner. Don't worry, I'm in a marina Russia. That's the last thing they slipped up on. That was the last concern. They slip with a concern that they'll love when we sleep and wake up, you know, help us in remaining obedient and in worship to and not to anyone else. You think you ask yourself? What is your concern? What do you think about every time you put your your head down on the pillow and your sleep? What concerns you, these people that concern for the Athena, they are frequented by the end, the day they ran away from the from the prison, they didn't even have time to

00:20:59--> 00:21:33

go back to their mothers and hug their mothers and their fathers at that time. They ran away and they went to the cave a little did they know it's all just going to begin right now. Everything is going to change. So they put their heads down, expecting to sleep for a few hours. before we're going to get up and alone, I'm alone help us out, we're going to sit down. So from the situation, they put their head down. And it's just going to become something now the entire universe is going to work for a lot of social now explains in a few hours. That sleep of this that went on for 300 years.

00:21:34--> 00:22:16

Because most of their life was spent sleeping. So most of the story would be spent explaining that sleep. So Bob's origin now he says what though a Shem set you down Bala they've just began their sleep. There are a couple of hours into their sleep. And now it's the next day. And the third day. And every single day alone you see what all and you see, and you visualize the sun when it rises. What's up, we're not seeing anything now. But what it wants you to visualize the sun in is like you've been taken from where you're sitting. And you're put on the mountain right next to where the cave is. And you said Look, look at the sun every time it comes up. My brother's the cave, it had

00:22:16--> 00:22:40

two openings. And it let's say this was the cave. The cave had two openings. There was an opening from the eastern side. And there was an opening from the western side. And it is an opening from the from where the sunrises and there's an opening from where the sunsets it had two sides, the mountain and the cave. two openings. Allah says what thought I shouldn't say that. But does

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

that mean? He said you'll see every time the sun rose,

00:22:47--> 00:23:07

the rays would come would come would come though reach until the mouth of the cave. And then we'll put the rays do dissolve on caffeine that that you mean? The rays would bend towards the right rate. The reason would not go inside. They would bend towards the right. Yeah, now most of Hannah who

00:23:08--> 00:23:54

is now making the sun work for the fader. And when one has certainty in Allah subhanho wa Taala even the sun would serve him also had a loving our best lovely Hello, I know he says that the sun would avoid them. Because how to enter it would have burned them and they called Magic 300 years of the sun coming in but your aptitude. You'd fry become barbecue inside. So he says yeah, I need to talk to my CFO. So Allah Subhana Allah made the rays turn. The other thing is that for you to get into deep sleep, you need darkness. So if light came in no good might wake him up. So the light would be turned and bent towards the right. And as a result, as they're inside the cave remained in darkness.

00:23:55--> 00:24:05

What are shumsa in our Paula, do you think of this 300 years, every day of 300 years, the sun is coming up, and the rays are bending.

00:24:07--> 00:24:26

And it's happening planets because as it sets as well. Allah says the boom there the chemin it turns it bends away from them towards the left. But the clue comes from the word count. And count meaning to give someone alone to give someone a favor alone. So in other words, when it sets it does them a favor.

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

It gives them some song, just as it's about to do it gives them some some thought about what they mentioned that the body needs at least three to five minutes of sunlight daily, so it remains functioning any night in active mode. So that sun at the end as the sun is setting, which now the rays are minimal, and they're a little irritated. It comes in it gives them some light, so their bodies remained functioning all the times panela The sun is going up and it's setting twice a day for 300 years.

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

Yeah, that's over 1200 miracles that happen for these people 1200 miracles every single day a miracle for these people. Well, when Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with someone, and a lot of gifts, a lot of gifts, there is no limit on total loss of how to what Allah gives gift. They have a lovely nursing fellow who seek any kind of light Norma would open for people, no one can hold it back 120,000 miracles even more, and what is going to happen is even more, so how the law, the sun is coming up, and it's coming down. And you know, Indian incredible, even nowadays, when people build a house, or you're getting an approval for a building or whatever, you're gonna make sure that

00:25:47--> 00:26:15

you take into consideration the windows and the sunlight that comes in, and the air that's going to come in, right you can't put the window wherever you want. You're gonna have to there's a regulation for it. What is Yeah, so Pamela, this, this, this cave that they're in is custom made. Allah guided them to the best of caves in where it gets sunlight that comes in on the other end, and the sunlight from his avoided war houfy fish, what do you mean, and as they were sleeping, they were in the middle of the cave. And

00:26:16--> 00:26:57

when the cave is open from two ends, you know, when you're in the house, and you open the window and the door, what happens on a windy day, if you open the window, and the door at the same time is there like this, this breeze comes in, right? This this cave, it's like a hotel and you think of on the 15th level of a hotel Mashallah, it's on the shores of the Gold Coast, and you're sitting and you've got your legs out on the balcony of open the door of the balcony, and you've opened the window of the hotel, and the breeze is coming in like this refreshing the air giving you like a cool breeze. So that's what's happening there in the middle of the cave. And the cool breezes coming in

00:26:57--> 00:27:14

from both ends, it's refreshing the the environment the air inside, and some sunlight is given to them at the end. So Pamela Yanni really displays became a focal point for this does the sun know the cave? Does this does the sun know what the cave is though? I'm guessing

00:27:15--> 00:28:01

it bends from their cave. Gani, the sun knows who's inside of the cave. That's what it knows, and it tells me not so how to feed fish what they mean, there can be a delay. This is from the great signs and the miraculous signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala below for anyone who also had on what Allah chooses to guide for what wanted is the guided one, everything around him will be guided for his favor, woman you will follow Leah Machina, and anyone who is led astray, then you will find no guide in front for them. Now while Xhosa continues to describe an even more epic scene of the asleep, he says, This is on the outside that sun and that is on the outside. Now we go inside what the several

00:28:01--> 00:28:23

a call on Roku, would you assume them to be asleep while they're awake? Getting asleep. Assume that when you see them, what are some of my colleagues assume that they're awake. But really they were asleep. In other words, their eyes were open for 300 years, they slept with their eyes open. But while they were in a deep sleep, why, because of the

00:28:24--> 00:28:48

odor that mentioned as well, that because of the fluid in the eye, that if the eye was too close for that he you'd become blind. So what was always had kept their eyes open so that the flu that the water in their eye is refreshed every time the wind would strike it was a good one a scary sight that is that you walk in there, and they're all laying down with their eyes wide open.

He remained in one position. He remained in that position of God in that position of attack. You know, when a dog is sitting, and he's got his paws stretched out. What does that mean?

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

A conversation that is happening inside of a cave among a few young men, who's going to listen to that. What kind of historian was there to record exactly what was mentioned. Nothing, must have had more dialogue was there to heat this conversation. And it is so incredible and also a full of lessons that he made it part of his young boys talking to each other became part of

00:35:25--> 00:35:29

until the day of judgment, you're reciting it later said, No, but you know,

00:35:30--> 00:35:41

they got up. And they're still confused. They're still worried. They expecting it, they asked each other, come live with them. How long have you been here for? So one of them ending? I don't know.

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

Probably one day.

00:35:44--> 00:36:04

Then he looked outside our elbow because we came in here. And the sun was he ever above or below I know, he said they woke up after now they wake up at the end of the day. In other words, my close to hustle time that's ever a noun. So in other words, someone's day it's there now, maybe about Well, part of the day.

00:36:05--> 00:36:29

So this is one group of them said that another group didn't accept that. They said no. Other things. Maybe we've been here a bit longer than a day or half a day. So they said Samira buku mana will be mad at you Lord knows best album we live, that doesn't matter right now, the thing that worries now is we're hungry to go get us food. So they sit for mouthwash, there can be a big deal and Madeira. for them.

00:36:30--> 00:36:40

That's what's worrying us right now. 300 years, they haven't eaten for 300 years. And what kind of hunger is happening with these boys right now? So they say if I

00:36:41--> 00:37:23

said any one of you now send him with the money of yours to get the word from Africa. How can he this truly, truly online if anything, it teaches you what Brotherhood is about really teaches you what Brotherhood is really about? Sin, any one of you? And who are who nowadays, you know, some people when there's like a meeting, or there's like a, let's say, a gathering, there's a discussion on some sort of Islamic community event and we get some volunteers. And then we begin to divide the work on the volunteers and say, Brother, you get us the drinks, you get the what is it called the cutlery that you get for us the barbecue and you get some people out? When did he say Did he get

00:37:23--> 00:37:32

that? Why am I supposed to get that for always sitting in a meeting? Take some money and go get us some food and come back? Why did they tell me to do that? You can

00:37:34--> 00:38:15

send any one of you because it doesn't matter who you said. We're all the same anyway. So no one felt offended. Send me Why are you sending me back to the city to get food? That one kid? Let's go with all the same monster. And then look what they said. Look at this brother. What is Bill? What do you think Maddie? sent him with your money? With your money? Whose money? Who are also is there a difference? What I have in my pocket is exactly what you have in your pocket. This is the Brotherhood This is your money. Yeah. And in other words, how am I until that happens, then that would be true brotherhood, that the day what's in my pocket is is the same as what's in your pocket

00:38:15--> 00:38:25

all the time. I stretch my hand into your pocket and I take it and it's like the same you don't get that is what Brotherhood is. That is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did between the outside world

00:38:26--> 00:38:57

that when they came to Medina, they gave him half their wealth. They gave him half their off and half their property and what they own. That is exactly what Islam came to do. These guys have a gulf war true brothers. They stood in court together, they slept together, they woke up together. They're about to eat together. They worship a lot together. Everything in the story was together. And all of it was in the plural sense. Whoo. In addition to mo if,

00:38:58--> 00:39:04

you know, it's all in the plural set. This was the kind of brotherhood they have. So for

00:39:05--> 00:39:25

a comedy lead, Medina said any one of you with this money of ours, sending Todd Medina to the city that we came back from San Leandro Escobar for the onboarding, let him look carefully, which is the most upscale buyer meaning which is the most holiday food as gay and if

00:39:26--> 00:39:56

you look at the very, very end, they still concerned about eating a salad. Anyway, at this time, it's alright maybe go and eat anything because you're excused then you're about to get killed. And you don't want to be known in the community. You don't want to expose yourself. So just eat anything. Even then doesn't give them an excuse. Make sure you get a scalpel and get the food that is Helen. So had a look at the worry and the concern and the love they had for Allah. They wouldn't do anything except under the permission of Allah subhanaw taala and you ask

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

for the ethical beliefs to me

00:40:00--> 00:40:39

Come with some food. Don't come up with a burgers and because only 10 boxes of pizza that not not that so much. Why? Because you'll bring attention there. So people are where are you going to have all that food and they'll come and they'll expose us. It is criminal something. When you get a lot of now they give him advice when they drop off below please be very careful and cautious, be courteous. In other words, when you go down, and you put your order on the food, don't be half an hour the food. How do you bring attention, be courteous, be nice, be loving and caring. Don't bring any unwanted attention to yourself. We don't want anything.

00:40:41--> 00:40:57

What am she on the other end don't allow anyone to notice you. And just before he leaves, they look at each other. And this isn't a strong, strong, strong lesson. A lot of teachers listen to what they see. They see each other Listen, it no he of hawala

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

if this city that we just ran away from

00:41:02--> 00:41:24

if they grab us, and they catch us yoshimoto they're gonna stone us. In other words, what was the original sentence for them to be killed? But that was how they were going to be killed stoned to death. Oh, you're a do confini let him they're either going to stone us to death, or they're going to put so much pressure on us and eventually force us to abandon our Deen.

00:41:25--> 00:42:03

And if we did that, learn to fly home with another there. You'll never be successful. You know, Tesco. What is that? That is called be overconfident in your deal. That is called Don't be overconfident in your deal. They didn't look at each other and say, we've done it before we were in court or martial law we spoke away they don't fear anything except the law. You know, they didn't do that. They realized that that was something Allah gave them but it might maybe the second time around the world doesn't give us anything of steadfastness in our heart. So boys, Yanni Don't be too excited over yourself, we might not do we will not be able to do this again. So be very careful,

00:42:03--> 00:42:38

please. Oh, you are confirming that we might be returned. You know, you learn from this don't put yourself in a fitness. You learn from this Do not put yourself in a filter because you don't know maybe you survived one fitness. Maybe you are mesh Allah but you ripped everything in the first fitness. But what guarantees you that you're going to beat the next guy that comes? Sometimes you know, there are movies that come out all the things that are reading about Islam? We say to the people brothers don't read it. But by it's very horrible what's inside of it will create a lot of depth in your deen. Don't read it. Don't watch it. What do you mean? What kind of watch it I'm gonna

00:42:38--> 00:42:44

watch? I'm gonna read I'm gonna keep reading. Nothing is gonna affect my deeper. Don't let go. He goes and he watches and he comes back without a

00:42:46--> 00:43:22

doubt in so can you clear it for me? Who don't need to watch it? Why do you throw yourself into the fitness Hall. And the young boys are teaching us this this Yanni will want you to lesson it's a lesson I owe you are you do confini let him they were brief at the first time that conference, the first slide Allah gave it to them, but nothing is gonna guarantee them they can beat the second fifth if it came to them. So please don't put us in any trouble. Don't put us in any problem, go get a smooth and come back. He when he took off one of the very intelligent, very smart Mustang. He is someone very wise must have went out. It's got to be patient. It's got to be good. He's going down.

00:43:22--> 00:43:37

He's got the money with him. He's going a little does he know that he's been 300 years, and the towns in the cities have changed. And he's walking in. We added the food menu that existed 300 years ago. Who's gonna understand what he's gonna order. So he walks down.

00:43:39--> 00:44:14

He's He's amazed. The streets have changed. The buildings have changed amongst talking on the phone at that point. He's talking to himself, what? Three years? 300 years ago, no one saw that. Yeah. And he just imagined now 300 years ago, someone slipped 300 years ago woke up now. And he walks amalgams. And he sees something flying in front of the board that, you know, a car or something. And then he looks up the building his house up there is a person, how do you go with it? And why did he Well, what happened? I said, was that was the restaurants. Where's the places? Where is everything?

00:44:16--> 00:44:23

Getting into Panama, really, they will have someone that is pretty much at the same time the community saw him. The people at the time now saw him.

00:44:25--> 00:45:00

Well, what's this guy doing? And there's there's a circusy a lot. Why is he wearing like that? Why is his hair like that? Why is his hair like that? Why is his clothes like that? What's his coin is holding in his hand. And I've seen that in the museum. What you're doing in his head, it's that it's a 300 year old coin for this, this meaning and there's the strangeness. He turns around, and he begins to run back to the cave. As he runs back to the cave. The people follow him. So they run after him. He gets up to the cave, and he goes inside of the cave and he realizes that

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

That old his brothers have died. They've all died, he walks in the cave, he sits down, almost takes his soul and he dies. And they all died like that in that state. And then he got a phone now to him. And that is how we made them discovered. Gani, in other words, the diary, and they were still hungry, they died and nothing ended their stomach. Allah subhanho wa Taala filled their hearts with so much detail, that he did not want them to leave this dunya with something of the dunya inside of them, because their heart was full of a loss

00:45:38--> 00:46:12

for muscle panel who loved him, and was jealous over them to the boy, he did not want anything of this dunya to enter the heart and to enter their stomachs. Because of their heart being full with the man and the young, he had the conviction and the certainty of a Muslim had on what data they left the studio hungry. And now we can oh we fit in the paradise. That is where the believers life is. That is where he's comfort is that is where he's being he is. So had a love. Look at that he got something out of him. And this is how we made them to be recognized. And this is how they were discovered.

00:46:13--> 00:46:57

So hello, when the people came, you know, at that time, 300 years after they sleep now when they woke up and now they're dead. There was a massive, a huge, huge theoretical debate among the Christians. Now at the time, any sort of you can say that Islam has been re established. There are people that are now worshiping and following the authentic teachings of Sally Sarah. The Dean has been restored into the community, that King and the Tony has long gone. And among the Christians, there was a big rip the debate. The debate was that at the end of time when a lot resurrects the people, are they going to be resurrected soul only, or body and soul? That was a massive issue at

00:46:57--> 00:47:37

the time? Allah subhanho wa Taala made the people of the cave discovered he made them the only the people discovered them. Why Liana and Noah de la so that people get to know that the certainty and the province what's the promise of the of the resurrection. That's the promise of Allah so that the people know that the resurrection is how is certainty, one Messiah that led the fear and the hereafter there is absolutely no doubt about it. Stone The reason for why they were only discovered so that the people are convinced about this. And my brothers, I told you this is something really important. The more conviction you have about a lost promise, the more certainty and belief you have

00:47:37--> 00:48:00

about the lost promise, the closer you get to a loss, you can have that and the less conviction and the less certainty. And the farther away you are from our most promise, which is that you will die and be resurrected once again, the less the man with a very, very, very important serious issue. The entire story of the people of the cave wants to prove to the people that you will be resurrected body and soul.

00:48:01--> 00:48:07

Just like they were resurrected body and soul. So how the law so law says if the internet is available

00:48:08--> 00:48:15

at a time when the people are disputing is the soul going to be raised or the body and the soul if they don't come along now look

00:48:16--> 00:48:19

for Curlew on a banana. Alavi

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

is standing outside this cave,

00:48:23--> 00:48:48

the priests come the big community leaders come the Christian the anti priests come in and they observe or they're going to do. So these are the same priests that have had a long discussion for a long time. What's going to be resurrected the bow body or body and the soul on its own or the body also now what happens? Now in the court argument is open to

00:48:50--> 00:48:59

a group of them said let's do a monument over there. It's built like a stone and a monument in honor honor of these holy saints. Allah Levine ohana

00:49:01--> 00:49:43

the people that had more authority in the land. They said Elena, we want to build a multi million dollar imagery that we're gonna build a machine right here. Yani with it the entire debate over decades and decades, was this kind of important argue the issue? Is the body and soul going to be raised? Or the soul itself all of a sudden, forget that issue. Let's now talk about are we going to make a studio we're going to build a budget. And so that was that became a concern. Now, what are we going to build? Who's going to build it? In other words, it didn't this this isn't this something that happened in the amount of samosa that we abandoned the main and the major and the important

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

issues and we ran into something trivial like that. A stone, build a stone, what's a stone, build any stone you want, build whatever you want. Go back to the main issue. How many times has this happened in a community like this? At a time like this? When a hockey The issue is presented and mentioned

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Don't speak about it. Don't speak about it, of causing division or causing hatred. You're causing disunity. You're the fault. What do you mean? What do you mean? spell it speak about da use for a Muslim? Let's speak about, you know, extending diversity. Let's speak about renovation for the most part is this more important than not? When you do that and make this kind of issue more important than archaea issue, you've done exactly what these people did at the time, which is something that Alo was disgusted by. So he recorded how horrible that conversation became. And it's just to get it's just about to get a lot worse. Unless it's now say una

00:50:40--> 00:50:52

Kambou. among each other later on, the Christians would come and they would say, I think they were three and the fourth one was the dog. Others would say they were five and the sixth is Don't

00:50:54--> 00:51:17

lie. They just throwing stones in the dark. Yeah, and chucking wild guesses were Kowloon and some of them would say, some of them can go, they were seven, and the eight foot was the door. Influence People didn't learn anything. The entire lesson of solid the governor's habit was greater than all of this. They're sitting down now discussing.

00:51:18--> 00:51:32

What lesson is this? teaching us really, what is it teaching us? He said, let's see, let me tell you now that there's a professional, and there's a highly experienced businessman, very successful, Mashallah millions and millions of dollars in his account billions of dollars.

And you got to see if it's selling in the in the area or not. And then you got to open somewhere where you know, you ragged engineer people money speaks, he speaks for an hour, and he's done. And he says, okay, does anyone have a question now? So then what have you got a question? On top of? It says, Can you tell us? What is the color of the socks? The way to work?

00:52:54--> 00:52:57
