Learn him at hamdulillah have been either mean or salatu salam ala rasulillah vida de beers Marian, or praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon the servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mr fellows, my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:25--> 00:01:08

Before I begin in Sharla, this is a introduction to the story that I'm about to share with you No doubt, one is very comfortable to say that we are living in times of fear. And during the times of fit, no one is supposed to seek means of protection so he protects himself from them. Just like if there was a storm outside or there was some emergency or some danger outside, people automatically would run to that which protects them. For him omala have titled or have made books titled alpha beta fism and in fitted, what are the things that will keep you protected upon your deen and keep your deen protected during the time of Fitton. And so basically, primarily, there are four things

00:01:08--> 00:01:31

let me share with you these four and then I'm going to elaborate on one of them which will be the story of tonight. Number one, and I met with him over Monday. See during the times of Fitton, the first thing that one is supposed to do in order to keep himself firm and steadfast upon this Deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala is to read a lot of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Surah 10 for Wakanda Latina cafaro lowlanders Rolando

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

Kelly, Kelly new sabitha before adequate Allahu Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he speaks to us of an incident in which the cofell came to the sumo muscle the law while he was similar and they said to him, why did the Quran Why didn't your plan come down as a whole as it came down on those of profits before you know the plan came down upon also loss I sell them over 23 years bit by bit it came down every every week there were some parts of the Quran that was coming down for 23 years. So they said why didn't Napoleon come down like the last Willie G and invisible and the previous scriptures in the books they came down as a whole upon their profits for loss of Hannah Montana responds and he

00:02:17--> 00:02:49

says can barely get Lino therapy Debbie for added the reason why it came down every single day for 23 years was so that we keep your heart steadfast upon the dean there and allow him Obama took from this that if you were to read the Quran every day, just like it was revealed that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every day. It keeps the heart steadfast upon the deen and it keeps one committed upon his Deen. That is exactly the reason for why it came down every day over 23 years. For that's one. Number two.

00:02:50--> 00:02:59

They say another way in how one protects his Deen during the time of freedom with a lot of and especially Of course, in the midst of a lot more.

00:03:00--> 00:03:24

It has been authentically underrated that he used to make a lot of this during his sort of Malmo polywell colluvial absorb some bit lb Allah Dini Alterna of the hearts and affairs and situations. Keep my heart steadfast upon your deen. And he used to make a lot of this during his salute. Why? Because when you're in this you're that's the closest point you are to almost

00:03:25--> 00:03:58

as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a problem a Kunal Abdullah who says that the closest point a servant is to Allah subhanho wa Taala is when he is in his suit. So that's the second means during the time of Phaeton in way if you hold on to them, your deen is protected and Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguards it for you. First one was reading. The second one was making plenty of black especially this Torah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make in his suit. The third of them might be brothers and sisters is as they

00:03:59--> 00:04:20

say, an honor to be doing an implementing that which you know of the knowledge but lots of had a dialect you mentioned in sort of that in said in sort of that he said he says is solid and solid and he said he says one unknown photo may be higher or low beta

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

male or female

00:04:25--> 00:04:47

female right this is a very incredible a Yanni acting and implementing what you know, you know, so Panama, every single day, knowledge is passed through and it's forwarded through the WhatsApp through the Facebook, through Twitter through whatever it is of social media. And that's good, but all that is useless if none of it is implemented with the release in Surah Nisa

00:04:48--> 00:04:48

unknown.

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

Have they implemented, what they were advised and what they will won't have had they implemented this knowledge they had, like at a fire alarm, it would have been better

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

For them, so that means if you did not implement what you don't know what you knew, that's no good for you that's that becomes deadly and that becomes bad, it becomes a witness against you on the Day of Judgment. So, what keeps you protected in the times of freedom is to implement what you know. And the reason for this is again in Surah Nisa, Barzani says, like I would have been better for them, what I should be there and it would have kept them firm and steadfast upon their Deen and as a result, what

00:05:32--> 00:06:11

we would have given them great reward This is the reward that Allah subhanaw taala gives them on the day of judgment when they know whom Sora pasta tea man and we will surely guide them and keep them guided on the straight path until they meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are three predictive means in the times of fitted. Now this is the fourth and last one and on from here on elaborate. The fourth thing of one doing in which you will keep him steadfast and protected upon the deen as a promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala is reading the stories of the past and reading the stories of the prophets and reading the stories of those that came in the past that Allah subhanho wa Taala made

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

mention of in the Quran. You know, I share this with you my brothers and sisters, we know the story of New Holland.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

And we know the story of Adam.

00:06:22--> 00:06:54

But you know what is the point of us knowing the story of Noah, to be honest, what's the point of knowing in detail the story of mohalla his setup, while here muscle powder who Medina says in Surah Al Baqarah DeLuca metal Takara la casa, Mecca, septum wa to soluna Mecca, Amara social clearly he says that the nations in the past were nations that passed unfinished law Mikasa but for them is what they did. Whatever they did, the Lord would reward them and hold them accountable for the bad they did. While

00:06:57--> 00:07:17

and you're an entirely new nation. We knew we accounted for what you did. And then he what he says. He says what to Sedona Mecca, you will not be questioned about that which they did. So if I'm not questioned about what the people have no having said I did, what's the point of me knowing their story, Ibrahim, Allah is set up so they know

00:07:19--> 00:08:03

the story of the elephant the the the the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was bought an entire solar for that solar 10 feet. What is the point of all this? There is one point that allows origin makes clean the flat in solitude. He says, what could lead to soiree, Kevin Russell, man with a b2b for that. He says wakulla Naka soiree can become bad. And also, he says, These are the stories of the prophets and the stories of the past. We narrate unto you. Why Allah, why did you tell us the story of Noah? Why don't you tell us the story of the people of the ditch? Why Lino, Peter v forehead, so that we keep your heart steadfast upon the deed, that is the only reason. And the

00:08:03--> 00:08:43

reason for why the stories are mentioned in the Quran is to keep the heart steadfast and committed upon the deed, that if you're going through times of fit, unlike today, and you're going through a lot of trouble and trial and tribulation and calamities, what do you have to hang on, to seek patience and to seek wisdom and inspiration from the stories of the prophets and the stories of the past? Just look into them, read them, and that should be enough of a child for you so that you remained firm upon your deen and for you to come to the conclusion and say that, you know, I'm not receiving this pain from around being defeated only, that's the first time I'm receiving it. There

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

has been people before me that have gone through the same thing I'm going through, and that'll keep you relaxed. Wouldn't it be some of them from time to time, he would come out to your Sahaba. And he would narrate unto them the stories will also pattern or dialect commands the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He says to him,

00:09:04--> 00:09:44

narrate onto them the stories so that they steam can ponder and reflect and so on. This is the point of the story. In other words, now we're going to begin with this story. And you need to keep always in your mind, what is the purpose of this story, you need to seek inspiration, take inspiration from the story. And you need to leave today. Being more firm upon your DNA more committed upon your DNA, having a look in the past of the people have the story and seeing if they went through what they went through, and they remain patient. What do I have an excuse before Allah subhanho wa Taala not to remain patient and committed and firm upon my deed? My brothers and sisters, this is an

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

incredible story that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam merits of a young boy that existed in a town and eventually victory was upon this young boy's head. And there's a lot of wisdom and deep understanding for why he chose a young boy so that victory is upon his head.

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

The story of my brothers and sisters, half of it or most of it is found in a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam collected by an event Muslim, and others have the honor man, and a continuation of the story is also found in the Quran. In no other than barouche the soul of the Buddha was about the story of the people of the ditch. And this is the way of most of our data how he keeps us tied to the Quran and Sunnah. If you read the story from the Hadith, you will not get that detailed explanation that was found in the Quran. And if you only chose to read the story from the Quran, you'll miss a lot that came in the Hadith. And this is Allah Subhana, Houma Dallas,

00:10:39--> 00:11:15

keeping us connected with the Quran and Sunnah, that if you join them together and read the story from the Quran from the sooner you'll get the clean image, and you'll get the full understanding of the story of the people of the ditch. And the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam comes out on his companions. And he sits down, and he narrates on to them the story. And he begins by saying, Ghana, FEMA, Ghana, kubla Khan, Malik Walker, Allah who said, he said much, much before you taking the people in which there was a king that ruled them, and this king, he had a magician.

00:11:16--> 00:11:55

What's the magician for? The King claims that he's the Lord, the king claims that he's a lot. And no one would trust him and believe him until they see something that is a miracle or something that is an ordinary. And so the magician would put on a show would put on some magic, people see it, unbelievable, so that they will believe this king being the law. And so for example, the people that come to the king, and the king would say, I know today you ate this, and you ate that. Today, you spoke this to your wife, and you spoke this to your friend, is the truth, that people are baffled. This is true. So I'm alone except me to be alone. The king, where did he get this information from?

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

He got it from this magician that he had. So this was a time and

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

they say that this story happened after he sat down. He said I was risen to the sky before the emergence of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam happened at this time. And you know, after he said he said,

00:12:13--> 00:12:30

the people at the time, especially the kings and so on, they could not stand anyone that was upon Islam, and upon the correct teachings of the Talat and indeed. So they began to kill everyone. They actually came to kill me, Sally, and I must have had elevated reasons.

00:12:31--> 00:13:06

And they began to kill from the righteous, so many, and and the righteous that remained they ran away, and they hid in caves and they hid so that no one can touch them and no one knows about it. So going back to the story, and this will become relevant as we move on. This King had a magician, and days go by and this magician grows into old age. And he says to the king, I'm growing very old. Send me a young boy 1114 and the gear send me a young boy, not any boy. A young boy, that is very catchy. There is very, very smart and intelligent. All

00:13:08--> 00:13:52

my brothers and sisters are who lambing the Arabic language is a boy that has not reached the age of 15. So he's under a 15. When he's 15. Above that's called a feather. Like the people of Oz habit camp in northern fit theater. They were above the age of 15. So this guy is pretty young, this boy and the magician is saying to the king, send me a young boy, so that I teach him magic. So he takes my place when I die. So Pamela Jani, the people have misguidance and the people are false hold this, this is the ID, the ID is how are we going to keep false on earth? How are we going to keep misguiding and corrupting the people? So he's thinking, you know, what, if this if this magician

00:13:52--> 00:14:33

died, and he was gone, and he's very close, but what does it mean? What's it is conserved to teach and to understand the case of what happens after but you've had a lot of people have misguidance that's how they work. They're not satisfied by their own death and going from this life. Before I die. I need to make corruption on Earth. So send me a boy so I can teach himself Jani. When you're a magician in an old age, you're supposed to end your life with a Toba turning to a Muslim Canada spending your last few days with a man so just look at this guy's spending his last few days moving, dismiss guidance he has and sending in a teaching at a young boy, this is the world of corruption in

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

the world of misguidance. If the disbelievers do that, then that becomes even more incumbent upon believers to be working in that, you know, the Muslims role is supposed to be how are we going to keep this Deen alive? How is it going to suffer survive? What are the means that we're going to take to deliver this deed from one generation to another. If the people of misguidance are doing that, then the people of gardeners should be doing 10 times more than that. And this is why Ganesh had a lot

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

Zachary alehissalaam when he's in old age, he makes about what is he says, happily, melancholia

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

earlier was

00:15:12--> 00:15:26

that throughout Zakaria, what's concerning it was in any when he's in old age, he says, Allah gifted me and grabbed me a child that continues his legacy, this Deen of Allah. Hi, Mama, in my children and in a generation of earlier.

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

Kabbalah he said the same thing, and he was sincere, but what gives him

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

to carry on that legacy?

00:15:35--> 00:16:00

As he's dying, he calls his children. He's dying. He says to the math, I will do them in body. What do you people, my children? What are you going to worship after I die? That was his concern. How am I going to keep the truth and the guidance alive for generations and generations to come? For this magician, he says to the king, send me a young boy, I teach him the magic. So they looked around in the town, and they found the young boy

00:16:01--> 00:16:38

from a poor family. And he was really a smart, intelligent boy. And they take him and they deceive his family by paying so much wealth. Eventually they given them as they take our young boy and go and teach him whatever you have to teach him for this child now and his entire family has been set up for life. They were rich, all of a sudden, now they are poor, and their child is going to be the right hand of the king. They're set for life. There's nothing to worry about. All the money is there and whatever the work is there. So he begins his lessons with the with the magician. And he goes to the magicians house and he begins to learn magic. He goes, he finishes he comes back to his family's

00:16:38--> 00:16:46

house every day. He's taking he's got a teacher now a teacher that he teaches in conference Shere Khan misguidance and his teaching and magic.

00:16:47--> 00:16:55

One day, as he is walking towards the magician's house, he hears a sound coming from a cave above a mountain.

00:16:57--> 00:17:17

So he takes a detour and he turns and he goes all the way up to the cave. And he he's powerful words, he looks inside to find a lawyer, a monk, a scholar, an old big old checker. And he walks in. And he sees him praying, and he sees him reading. And the Hadith says

00:17:20--> 00:17:37

he was amazed and taken and blown away by the woods, this shirt this monk was reading. So he says to him, What are you reading? Who are you worshiping? He says, I would love. He says, What do you mean? I love the king and he, he says Abu lahab below book.

00:17:38--> 00:18:02

I worship Allah, my Lord, your Lord, and the Lord of the king says, Is there a lot other than the king? He says yes to my son, there is a lot other than your king. Your King is a false Lord, the Lord of the heavens in the skies, and he gives him a lesson in the heat. And what's incredible is the word and the reaction of this young boy who says for algebra who he was amazed, and I want you to think of this word,

00:18:04--> 00:18:21

Yanni, so Panama, you know, someone that leaves a corrupt life, a life of misguidance, a life of corruption, a life of how long and then eventually he repents. You asked him Brother, what was your reason of repentance? It was one Listen, I heard. It was one a I heard.

00:18:22--> 00:18:50

It was one CD of a lesson I heard. so that you understand how powerful our man has he is so that you understand how powerful Islam is. One word from the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala is enough to do 180 in your life, for the child is mesmerized, he's taken by these words of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that this monk is reciting for Shiva who can Allah Subhana Allah

00:18:52--> 00:19:00

He else man was a man of justice. You love justice. So when bolita Allah when Allah subhanho wa Taala sits down in

00:19:02--> 00:19:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands that you deal justly, he says for what God told me. He says now I was certain about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:13--> 00:19:20

loved one who became son of the dean after law after one came down. But

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

when it comes down

00:19:24--> 00:19:54

to FERPA we met, you will not be granted and Bill Alberta's goodness in this ad means the paradise you will not be given paradise until you spend from that which you love. Paula luevano Rusty's garden and he gives them ofI sabinal as 600 palm trees. When I look what he did in his life, they could have given 300 palm trees and he 400 could have left 200 for him. But so he gave 600 because of one air. For this boy, you're saying

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

he was amazed and taken by these words that the Mongol

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

reciting, and he was reciting the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's it. He was now almost convinced about the deen of Allah Subhana dialer. So he keeps quiet. And he continues his journey until he reaches the magician. He learns from the magician. And now it's become a habit. Before he goes to the magician, he stops by the law him by the monk, he takes a lesson in the heat. And then he continues, goes down to the magician. And he takes a lesson of shift. And he goes back to his family. And and so to the point where the magician realized that this boy is coming late, he's not coming on time on the lesson, say because the him

00:20:39--> 00:20:57

and his family hit him as well because he's coming late from the magician. So he worried he got worried. And he got disturbed by this young boy. So he goes to the mall. And he says to him, and he I go to the magician, he hits me I go to my family, he they hate me because I'm with you. So he says to him, okay?

00:20:59--> 00:21:37

He says when you go to the magician's house satine that your family held you back. That's why you leave. And when you go to your family's house, say to them, that the magician held you back, and Nores. And he's not teaching him how to lie, but in necessity and necessary times that is allowed for the greater benefit. So that happened, and it happened for a while. And so now the boy has two teachers. He has a teacher that is teaching him the deen of Allah. And he has a teacher that is teaching him the Dean of the king. So what's he gonna do? He's confused. One day, as he's walking from the magician's house,

00:21:38--> 00:22:01

all of a sudden, for either the button Aviva caparica, nurse, there was a huge piece on the path and the road of the people. It stopped the people, those that are on the other side cannot come to the side and those on the side cannot pass to the other side. In the narration of a movie. It's mentioned that it was a lion, huge lion.

00:22:03--> 00:22:14

And the boy approaches and he says in his heart today, I will know if the Dean of the monk is more beloved to Allah than the Dean of the magician.

00:22:15--> 00:22:29

And he gets close to this animal to this beast, and everyone's looking What are you doing? This is a beast that we've never seen before. Everyone's scared of it. He comes close to it. He takes a pebble from the earth or rock something small.

00:22:30--> 00:22:49

And you resist and he says Allahumma in Ghana, amour la he'd be a hotbed la come in Emeril Malik Falcon Heavy depth. He says, Oh love, if the deal of the month is more beloved to you than the deal of the magician. Kill this beast. Look at his

00:22:51--> 00:23:34

Why did he say our love? If the Dean of the monk is more beloved than the Dean of the magician? Why did he flip it around? Why didn't he say if the Dean of the magician is more beloved than the Dean of the monk kill this base. Why? Because it seems to be that he was more convinced about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. And that is what we call a football. Everyone has a filter inside of him. And he knows that the monk is speaking the truth. But I just need to see a bit I need to see something so that I'm convinced fully and I know how to lead my life from now on, so that I become a soldier from the soldiers of a muzzle panatela to spread this deep. So Pamela fan he picks up his rock and

00:23:34--> 00:23:46

he frozen for bet that the adapa died. And he rolled that he went away from the people's path. And the people saw it and the people are mispriced by this they were taken away. And so this boy became famous among them.

00:23:47--> 00:24:12

It became the talk of the town, a young boy took a small pedal, and he threw it on the beast and he killed it. And no way I rocked the smoking killer bees that big. This is Allah subhanho wa Taala is played. He's preparing that boy, that I can kill this devil with a small rock. And this is the same way that Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring the destruction of this king on this young boy as well at the end of the story.

00:24:14--> 00:24:46

He sees this and he's taken by this and he's happy by this. So he rushes to share. He rushes to avoid to the monk and he narrates the story. And I need you to understand my brothers and sisters. The monk what's what's his role in the story? Why is he mentioned to teach us that before you go out in the Dow and the path of a lot you need to have a teacher. You need to have a guide you need to have a mentor just like this young boy had a teacher. So he goes back to his teacher and he says to him what had happened. And then this is what the teacher says. He says to me

00:24:47--> 00:24:57

in Nakayama Follow me. He says boy, my son today you are better than me. So why did he say you're better than me? You know what

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

if this is a young boy

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

At the age of 40, he can do something like that. What does that mean later on when he grows? How much is he going to be doing? Meanwhile, I'm a monk, what am I doing? I'm sitting in a cave, running away from the people hiding from the king and worshipping a minor cave. And that's it. I don't want to see anyone says to him today, you are better than me. And of course, he's going to be better than him. Because the young boy doesn't only become a worshipper, he becomes a dairy as well, he becomes a correlate to a lot. And no doubt, one who worships and cost a lot is better than just the worship that sits in the house. Even insane. So that monk will have the entire reward of this young boy

00:25:39--> 00:25:46

because he's the one who taught him and became Muslim at his hand. So he says to him today, you're better than me. And he says to him what you know.

00:25:48--> 00:26:02

And my boy, you are going to be tested. And this is true. Anyone who took the path of Allah, Allah, hi, Mama will be tested. No doubt. Allah says, a housekeeper nurse or your Roku, Roku oven?

00:26:03--> 00:26:36

Did the people think that they're going to be left like this without being tested? And they're just going to say, No, we believed we believed we thought a test, say he says to my boy, you are going to be tested from now on. He said, what you need to leave the federal law. And if you are tested, make sure if he grabs you don't give up my location. And don't tell them about me. House, the boy understood that he took off, he went back into the town. And the boy became a silent preacher among his people. He'd go from one person to one person and teach them about loss

00:26:37--> 00:27:06

and loss aversion give this young boy calmette miracles that happen to the other hand, the righteous other than the prophets, so large, so he'll give him the ability by the permission of Allah to bring back the sight of those who are born alive. And the one who had leprosy, he would wipe his skin and the skin would come back healthy and normal again. And this was his doll, I gave him these two tools, and all of his dolls like this. And people would accept this there. Until one day,

00:27:07--> 00:27:25

the Minister of the king was a blind man. And he heard of the young boys ability to bring back the sight of those who are blind. So he says to his associates, and his helpers, this minister, he says, pack for me as many gifts as you can carry.

00:27:26--> 00:27:35

So they pack up gifts, and they all carry gifts. And they go to the young boys house, and the minister enters the house. And he says, young boy,

00:27:36--> 00:27:40

I heard that you're able to bring back the sight of those who are blind.

00:27:41--> 00:27:50

If you can do that, for me, see all these gifts, you see, that money is all yours. So the boy he says steam in the lounge.

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

He says tomorrow

00:27:53--> 00:28:41

in number sheffey. It's Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is curious, and to understand my brothers and sisters, the young boy, he is not concerned to give power to the people to himself. He's concerned first and foremost, to give power to Allah subhanaw taala. He doesn't care about himself. He says Allah does not mean. So then he says, Listen, I can tell you something, Minister, if you accept fine amande be let down to LA like a fish if you want. If you accept and believe now, I will make a lot of returns back your site. And Bismillah was panatela will give you a sign. So he sat down the Minister and the boy starts speaking to him about the law. But how long Zoysia is the creator, and

00:28:41--> 00:29:21

how is the sustain on the maintain on the planet and the run of this universe. And he gives him a whole list of towhead until this ministry is convinced that he says now you know a lot. So then the boy, he makes a lot of return his sight. All of a sudden, the Minister did not leave the house of the young boy except that his side has come back. The boy is able to return the sight of Allah by the permission of Allah. And Allah is the one who is born blind. So you need to keep in your mind that this minister has never seen anything in his life. Color come up black and white and yellow doesn't mean anything to him. He couldn't see. And now all of a sudden, for the very first day of

00:29:21--> 00:29:36

his life, he's got sight and he's seeing once again, for the minister goes back the next day. He's a minister of the king. So he has to be in the palace the next day at work. And the king looks at him and he realizes something. He says to me.

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

He says who returned your site when you get the eyesight from? He says to him a lot. He says to

00:29:45--> 00:29:54

me, do you have a load other than me? He says yes, my Lord and your Lord is a paradise for the Lord of the heavens in the earth.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

So he gets this minister and he begins to build them and build them and be

00:30:00--> 00:30:24

Demand punishment punishing to the point where this minister could no longer bear the punishment. So he gave up the location of the boy. He says it wasn't me. It was the boy who led me to this. So then the king he commanded that bring the boy, they went, they got the boy. And as the boy enters the Palace of the king, the king he says to the book, our beloved woman said he got a Naga to bring on

00:30:25--> 00:31:03

one of us, he says to my boy, has your magic reached the level where you're able to bring back the sight of those who are blind and heal those who are Yani with the disease of leprosy. sheeps? Pamela, the king is Satan. Is it your magic? Jani? Boy, please say it's your magic. Don't say other than that. Because if you say other than that, then you've just embarrassed me in front of my powers. So the boy he looks at him and he says the word of truth. And he says to law, he says, Love, we wish Fie. Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's the one who taught us.

00:31:05--> 00:31:40

So he grabs him. And he begins to belt him and beat him and punish him and punish him. And of course, the king has the only back in the times they have these people that used to strong men that they just used to stand with a stick or whatever they used to punish the people. And the king would be entertained by what he saw, they punished this young boy to the point where he could no longer bear this pain. So he gave up the location of the old man of law him. So they went in search of the soil, they grabbed him from his cave, and they took him until they reach the palace. Now three of them are in the kit in the Palace of the king, the young boy, the Minister, who just recently

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

accepted Islam and got his side back and arrived from Oak the priests.

00:31:46--> 00:31:50

For Panama, they begin with a wide, they grab the law hit

00:31:51--> 00:32:36

the monk, and the king system, or you don't abandon your deed, or we're gonna kill you, abandon will kill you. And the law he remains La La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, until the king commands that he shall be killed. So the Hadith mentions faculty abhi Michelle, which is a big share of the soul. And the soul was pleased to see, you know, where that where they hear how there's a line and it divides, the soul was put right in the middle of his head. And they began to saw him in half back in the time and they used to do this, they used to bury you, the waist into the ground, because from your waist down, it's already divided in half. So they used to bury you so that you're not able to

00:32:36--> 00:33:15

move, and then they began to soar. And that's what they did with the monk. And I only think of this, we're not speaking of electric saw with the job is done in less than half a second, or in less than half a half a minute. This is a song with one man with one hand and he's sorry. So it took time for the whole body to split in half. And the monk repaint remained upon lay. It's for most of it anyway, might as well just go into it finished. And the young boy sees that his that his teacher has just died in front of him. So they brought the minister and they said to the Minister, would you denounce your deen? Are we going to kill you just like we killed the priest. Now what do you think of the

00:33:15--> 00:33:23

minister? The minister has just enjoyed the site yesterday? Yeah. And he he's got another 40 whatever he is in front of him to enjoy his site.

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

Is that more enjoyable for him?

00:33:29--> 00:34:08

Yeah, when he Jani, my brothers and sisters when he man interests the heart There is nothing more beloved to the person than that. If it really enters the heart, you will find nothing in life more better than this. And so he goes for kill me. What are you gonna do even though I just got my sight and I can see things right now. Enjoy life as it is a minister. He has money as a family as a policy as a house. He's future set. But that did not deterring from Layla in law. So his fate was exactly like the monk. And they sought him in half until he died in front of the boy remains the boy now. So the king says to the boy denounce your deen. He says, I know.

00:34:09--> 00:34:49

Nothing will turn me from it. And you know the king, he can't kill the boy, because he wants to. He wants him. This is a young, smart boy. They've invested a lot of money and time in him. And he's the perfect boy after the magician. So he doesn't want to get rid of it very quickly. The other thing is he cannot kill him like he killed the other two. Because then the entire town would say look at the king did. He killed a foreign 14 year old boy sawed in half, you know, who would then respect the king. So he couldn't do that. So he came up with a plan to kill this boy. He said, okay, he brought half his army. And he said, Take this boy until you reach the highest mountain. When you get they're

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

given the option again, to denounce his Dean. If he does not denounce his Dean, throw him off the cliff and that way he dies and then come back and we'll just make up a story and people will believe us. They

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

just blindly slidden he died. So they took him. And I think of this, as the boy is climbing, one footstep after another until he reaches the peak of this mountain. What's going on in his head? What is he thinking?

00:35:17--> 00:35:37

The more steps he takes the highest getting me seeing his face. This is my ending. That's how I'm going to die. And he doesn't give up. He doesn't give up. Look how tested he is in his Deen and he doesn't give up. That's how I became a champion at the end of the story. He walks he walks, he walks until he reaches the top and it makes the power of what he says.

00:35:40--> 00:35:55

He says I will take care of him the way you want. Take care this is if you believe him if he doesn't condition on anything. Allah deal with them, the way you see possible deal with him the way it fits the way you want. So Panama power of

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

all of a sudden, this mountain begins to shake, and everyone on the mountain drops and falls to their death except this boy, he leaves.

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

And the duration says

00:36:09--> 00:36:50

she and Eden Valley. He came walking to the king, I know why you could run away. Once the Kings gonna kill you. Why didn't you run away? young boy? Why didn't you run away? The end of the boy is on a mission. After he was convinced by the Dean of a law he's on a mission that the entire town needs to accept this lead. So he's not running away. He goes back straight to the king. The king looks at him and he says to him, never follows havoc. He says, What did your companions do? You see, look at the king. He did not say Where are my soldiers? He said to him, Where are your friends? Because he doesn't want to humiliate himself in the palace. So he disassociate himself from his

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

army. And he says these are your friends. Where are they? He says the

00:36:56--> 00:37:05

care of him for me. For them he commands that he's taken and put on a Jani, the cola,

00:37:06--> 00:37:34

which is a small book, some say it's a big book, he says didn't take him on a phone or on a boat until he reached the middle of the ocean. When the waves are high, and the tide is really high, throw him in the ocean and that's how he's gonna die. Alright, so they put him on this boat, and they go and as they get to the middle of the ocean, they're about to throw him again. He says Allahu McPhee Diem be my [???]. He says Allah take care of him the way you want.

00:37:36--> 00:37:50

All of a sudden the waves come crashing on this boat, and the boat, Jani capsizes. All of them die, all of them drown, except this young boy he emerges from the water had a low

00:37:52--> 00:38:17

Maliki machine and he walked back to the king and why? Why didn't he run away? No one is with him. Again, because the boy is living for more than his life and a life or death. It doesn't matter. It's all for a lot anyway. So might as well go for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, a boy on a mission. He goes back to the king. And the king says to him, and he knows how were your friends that you went with? He says.

00:38:19--> 00:38:55

He says give me he will love Allah safeguarded me from them. He took care of them. So then the boy, listen, listen to how humiliated his king becomes in his palace, the voices to listen. He's amazing. Listen, Danny, shut your mouth and listen to me. He says you cannot kill me. Except that you do what I say that human, a 14 year old boy is dictating to a king, how he's going to kill him in the middle of his palace where all the ministers are. So he says to him, you cannot kill me until you listen to what I say. He says Go ahead.

00:38:56--> 00:39:12

He says, gather the entire town. The boy wants the entire town gathered Why? So that they see and witness this. So eventually they accept this lead, gather the entire town and put me on a platform and tie me to a tree

00:39:13--> 00:39:33

and take an arrow from my quiver. Why did he say to take an arrow from my quiver? Why did he say take an arrow from your quiver? You know why? Because the Kings arrows are as useless as his army. as useless as his army. They're no good. So take a quiver from my take an arrow from my quiver,

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

and Goofy capital posts, put it in the middle of the boat. He's teaching him how to use the bow and arrow. That's the humiliation it's reached. Now for the king. He's saying put the arrow in the middle of the boat. And before you release it, say Bismillah he had a say in the name of the Lord of this boy had a lot to say that the humility of this boy that he does

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

Neither one his name mentioned. And this is a proof that this young boy, his dad was only for a while, to the point where don't mention money just say in the name of the Lord of this boy. Yanni don't say in the name of the Lord of Ramadan wouldn't even know what his name is. And I didn't care about money I don't want my name mentioned, say in the name of the Lord of this boy, this is the Dalai Lama.

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

And he says, If you do that, you will kill me.

00:40:26--> 00:40:30

So the next day, the king brings the entire town.

00:40:31--> 00:41:00

And he ties him to a tree, just like the boy said, he takes an arrow from the boys quiver. He puts it in the middle of the boat, and he returns and he releases it saying Bismillah beheaded. And now the people are silent in the hood, this and the arrow begins to fly across. And if I was watching, what's gonna happen? This boy has lived twice when the king tried to kill him. Is he going to survive this time? Or is he going to die?

00:41:02--> 00:41:11

And the arrow keeps on going until it reaches subulata, who, which is the temple between the eye and the E, and it goes right in here.

00:41:12--> 00:41:49

And then the duration says For woba, either hawala salvati, he put his hand with the arrow. And as pantaloni, this word in the Hadith, what does it mean? What is it about he put his hand on his temple with the arrow entered, so Panama, Yanni, this generation of also heavy Roby Allahu anhu, once when he was in the war in the battlefield, and he got injured a little bit in his hand. And he put the other hand on the injury. And he says, alone by the police. Why in Dhaka to bury?

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

He says, Allah,

00:41:53--> 00:42:21

Allah, this is little, this is little for your sake. And you please the Baraka in the little, little, so have you seen your place the Baraka in this world, so that it spreads around my entire body, so I die for your sake, whoever This is what the boy is doing. He wants to die for the sake of a lot. So he puts his hand on his word for sotapanna Yatta. And he falls and that's how the boy dies. Now the boy is dead. The day he died, was the day that our lives, that's how it

00:42:22--> 00:42:23

works.

00:42:26--> 00:42:51

They had a plan. They had a plan, the king had a plan, the magician had a plan. Let's keep the magic going. Let's keep the people fooled and misguided, and allows another plan, the same boy they wanted, so that he succeeds the month so that he succeeds, the magician is the same boy in which victory was beaten on his hand. So he dies, and the people began to check out.

00:42:55--> 00:43:22

We believe in the Lord of this boy, we believe in the Lord of this boy. And then you know why? Because they realized that this king could not kill this boy, except in the name of his Lord. So that means a lot. He's the one that is true. That's how he died in the name of Islam, otherwise, you're gonna kill it. For the king, Danny, the people are screaming, and that'd be king couldn't hear what they're saying. So Johnny, he couldn't see them. He goes back to his palace.

00:43:24--> 00:43:34

And the ministers that are there, they realized that the people have accepted Islam. So they Russian they follow the king to the prayer to the palace, and they say to him, Are

00:43:36--> 00:43:42

you worried because three accepted Islam, the entire towns of Muslim now, but all of them have accepted Islam.

00:43:43--> 00:44:11

And he didn't believe it. So he said to the book, it closed off the town siege, the entire town blocked off closing exactly like what they do today overseas. That's why I told you the story a little bit before, so that we keep your heart steadfast upon the deed. Close the entire city, entire town. Don't allow anyone to leave a C, A C. And worse above all this. He says, what are your hopes

00:44:13--> 00:44:25

and the king commanded them to start digging trenches? ditches, a dude, dude is a rectangular dug a hole in the earth, a rectangular size

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

digger and light at fire light at fire. And so they dug it and they lit it with fire. And the fire was so fierce and intense that if a bird was to fly above, it would drop dead inside of it. That's how intense the flame was. Was Pamela This is exactly what happens overseas. And I tell you something. At the beginning of the story, there were no mentions of any name. The King's name wasn't mentioned. The boy's name wasn't mentioned. There were no names in the story mentioned. And on top of this in the story, there is no mention of when it happened. We only mentioned it

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

In terms of time was kubla Khan before, that's all, you know what the reason for that is? The reason for that is because this is going to repeat again. And it's going to keep on happening until the day of judgment. So there is no use to mention names because this thing is going to keep on happening. And it does and it keeps on happening. So he closes off the town.

00:45:20--> 00:46:02

And he grabs and he begins to grab one by one. And he gives them the option. They would say to do you denounce your deed, or we're going to throw you in this fire. Whoever did not denounce his deed, they threw him in the fire. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, putting up do me the people of the ditch because Yahoo's dude, it is the criminals the king and his army that's have enough, dude. They're the owners of the trench. They're the ones that dug it. A lot of social media curse against them in the collapse, put it out of dude, a nursery that they were put, remember the time when they lit the fire, and now that it was lit furiously, if

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

you know what it is

00:46:07--> 00:46:33

to sit down like this. In other words, when this fire was raging, and they're being thrown one after the other, the army and the king was sitting relaxed for not Juno's Juno's is a temporary city. karate is like kicking back. That's the king and the army was sitting and they were enjoying what they're seeing of the believers being burnt alive, but a lot of birth to death, just like what happens today.

00:46:38--> 00:46:58

And they were a witness to what they were doing against the believers. A lot of soldiers made the people have a witness to their own crime, so that on the Day of Judgment, they are not questioned about this new court case about it. You are a witness to a crime bill a strict agenda. That's exactly what happens. If you have to lose

00:46:59--> 00:47:13

money until they reach a woman and this woman, she had her baby with her a labia and he was still suckling can him definitely he's under the age of two. He's suckling.

00:47:15--> 00:47:34

And the mother Jani she hesitates and she's got the baby breastfeeding Jani just in Gani, let him Let him be fooled out, so that then I can throw myself in the fire. She wants him to have a feed before she's dead. So she's looking at this boy and she's walking slowly, slowly towards this fire for a boy to finish.

00:47:35--> 00:47:38

And all of a sudden, so pantalon a miracle happens.

00:47:39--> 00:47:54

The boy takes his mouth from the breast of the mother and he looks at the mother. And he says, men whose belief in nicaea I don't have any number of the narration yet Oh, man, the speedy for another but Tanya, one woman other will.

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

He says, Oh, mama, be patient.

00:47:58--> 00:48:04

Verily, the punishment of this life is easier than the punishment of the hereafter. And he says to

00:48:05--> 00:48:35

your upon the truth, yet a mother What are you scared of? We're upon the truth. You want to die upon email or you want to die upon Kufa hollows when she heard that Yanni immediate certainty entered her heart, and she threw herself and her young boy in the fire. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the woman, Naka Minam, la la la ciudad Hamid woman acaba. Nakamoto. comes from the word nuclear and Nicola needs to be disgusted by something.

00:48:36--> 00:49:24

He said that the people of the ditch the king and his army, they did not see anything disgusting in these people except one thing what was disgusting about them are you will be legen rccl amin that they believed in Allah, Who is described as Al Aziz, the lawmaker, the legislator and Hamid The one who To Him belongs all praise so that that's what they saw disgusting in Jani Nakano. Just to give you an ID if I saw someone wearing a pink sock, and then I came in, I bashed him, but just because I'm disgusted by your pink sock, you're gonna do anything to but I'm just disgusted by why you're wearing like that for that's, that's not fair. In other words, these believers didn't do anything to

00:49:24--> 00:49:38

harm the kingdom and the army, but a lot of social he said they saw something disgusting in them, and that is that they believed in a Lord, who is described as Al Aziz and Hamid. Now why specifically allows is that? Why do you say

00:49:41--> 00:49:45

Cesar Hakim, so many names of Allah, why specifically these two names, I tell you why.

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

And as he is, as I said to the lawmaker, and that really irritated the king and he got under his skin, because he wants that the people acknowledge his allowing. I will make

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

So because they believed in a law other than the king, that is the lawmaker, it got to him. It made him furious. And the other thing is that they believed in our Lord who is known as an Hamid, the one who is Worthy of all praise. And that also got under the skin of the king, and irritated. Why? Because we're providing all these facilities that the king and his army provide for the people, and you're thanking someone other than me, that's not acceptable. So he killed them based on the account that they believe in a law that he's allowed to

00:50:32--> 00:51:03

believe in your law, but don't believe that he's allowed me. That's what he wanted. And that's what they want until this day. If you you believed in a lot. And you take away these two names of Allah, Aziz and Hamid, and you associate them to a government or other than Allah, they're happy with you. That's fine. But don't ascribe law to other than us, if you ascribe it to a lot, and then ascribe praise to him. We don't want anything to do with you now we'll kill you. So had a lot of fun as he said, Honey, I love you Love one.

00:51:04--> 00:51:05

Why is

00:51:06--> 00:51:15

because To Him belongs at the dominion of the heavens and the earth, anything that's in the heavens and the earth belongs to him. Oh ally coalition in Shaheed

00:51:16--> 00:51:18

in the levina federal nominee and I want

00:51:19--> 00:51:32

to say those who bought the believing men and believing woman alive fat, no meaning to burn. That's what fitna is, is to burn literally it means to burn in Alina fetta means one minute from Allah May.

00:51:34--> 00:52:17

Allah Subhana Allah, Allah azza wa jal, he says, Those who birthed the believing men and believing woman. Now why did Allah specifically say a minute? Whereas we know in the last minute in the masculine, it's understood masculine and feminine? Why did he specifically say minette? The female believers, why, to show you how horrible and insane this king was, to the point where he's even gone to harm the woman of the society. So he wanted to humiliate this king, and make mention that he did not only pick on the men, but he also picked on the woman and he tortured them like you tortured the men. But even further than this, even tortured the young boys. So Pamela, you see, the love of the

00:52:18--> 00:52:32

love of authority, what it does, to the point where you're willing to kill a boy headed this is the love of power is the mother of authority. It will do crazy things you're willing to kill a young boy that still suddenly had a love for Los Angeles is

00:52:34--> 00:52:55

at the mercy of a law firm madami tubu. awhile went by, and these people did not repent. In other words, a Lord gave the king in the army a chance to repent. But Allah said for Matt Jani a whole time went by, let me adobo they did not repent. Now, as a result, fellow Houma, Louisiana,

00:52:57--> 00:53:21

now they deserve the punishment of yanam. And the burden punishment of the Fire either will hurry up to Kerala at the mercy of Allah, Allah who was willing and ready to forgive all their past and all the injustices in crimes they committed against the believers, but they chose not to take it. So then Allah subhanho wa Taala takes them to that punishment. Then the after, in the levina.

00:53:22--> 00:53:27

Wham you saw they had left home genetic data and unhealthy

00:53:28--> 00:53:39

that he can compete in the levina, Amano watermilfoil had first and foremost This is referring to these people that died. And I asked you a question, how long if they accepted this level?

00:53:41--> 00:53:44

How long would they have accepted from the time the boy died

00:53:45--> 00:54:26

till the ditch was buried down till it was lit on fire, and then they were thrown in an hour, two hours maximum. That was all these lab. They live two hours of his lab. They did not turn away from their deed. They did not denounce it. Why? Because they had a role model in front of them. A boy died in front of them for the sake of alone. We're ready to die for the sake of luck. We have a role model in our life. Why are we going to back down? But let me tell you this two hours of Islam, what the two hours do for them? What did Allah subhanho wa Taala speak of the two hours of Islam. He says the home jetnet for them is not gender one.

00:54:27--> 00:54:30

Many, many gardens in the paradise.

00:54:33--> 00:54:59

Underneath which rivers not one river rivers flow. Now watch this. Look at the conclusion their legal folds will be that is the huge and great success. And I look at this is where's the success? What did they do for the team? What did they do in two hours for what to say that is the greatest success. Nothing really nothing but one thing only and that's

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

That matters, that they died upon the dean. And they remained firm and steadfast upon the the bus. That's it. Now this is life, this is life. But the point is, look what you did yesterday, and two days ago and two weeks ago and what you're doing now and or whatever. The point is, how are you going to leave this world? How are you going to die? Are you going to die upon?

00:55:25--> 00:55:28

Look, if you lived one hour of daylight, but you died on it

00:55:30--> 00:55:36

doesn't matter. If you lived an entire life of righteousness, and you died upon cover. That's

00:55:38--> 00:55:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Why not

00:55:43--> 00:55:45

have a guru.

00:55:51--> 00:56:16

He says some of you might be doing the works and the actions of the people of the paradise until there's only a hand span between him and death. And he does the work of the people of the fire, and he dies and he enters the fire, we should have a lot less of a loss, celebratory, I feel a little more celebratory, I feel a little better. And ideally, you see why this guy was very important for sort of muscle. So let me show you

00:56:17--> 00:56:18

a bit of

00:56:21--> 00:57:04

an ideally, you see why the stories of the invention. The point was just so that you are taught, keep firm upon God. That's the entire purpose of a story. The story from the beginning to the end of it that was the point of a panel and nearly the victory my brothers and sisters, this is why there needs to be a lot of concern in the youth of this woman in the youth of the the disbelievers have their eyes upon the youth just like this magician had his eyes on the youth. And also Allah subhanho wa Taala He grants victory upon the hands of the youth. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith seven types of people who will shade on the day of judgment when there is

00:57:04--> 00:57:07

no shade except to shade. What's the first time

00:57:09--> 00:57:12

mmm when I did adjust ruler, what's the second?

00:57:13--> 00:57:47

Shepard measure of your party law sir, which is a young boy that was nurtured upon the deen of Allah. Then there's another five categories. And I want to share with you Why were these two mentioned the first why adjust ruler and the young boy that was nurtured upon the Dean of a law. You know why? Because these are the only two from the seven categories that can change the entire world. Imagine adjust ruler, what change can you bring upon the world? Imagine a young boy that has the dean with him and he holds a strong and he preaches like this young boy. What kind of change would happen on his head?

00:57:48--> 00:58:06

There is this a lesson in this boy of the story. Look what change happened on his head. The entire town became a Muslim. The day he died was the day where the DAO live and everyone became a Muslim. That was the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The young men of the cave, you know their story, the solar together if you read it yesterday,

00:58:08--> 00:58:50

they were boys 1515. And above that was the age. But I tell you something, my brothers and sisters a cave. Is it dark or light, or really a cave is darkness or light is darkness. But that cave became might for generations to come until the day of judgment, it became light of guidance. And we when we read solo Telegraph, we are in the mind of the cave that it doesn't make sense. A cave is supposed to be dark. But this story was an incredible story. Their story was also a story of remaining firm and steadfast upon your DNA. And the wonders it did for them to the point where the black cave became lightful each and every single one of us this young boy in the story of

00:58:52--> 00:59:06

each and every single so happy when he heard the story. Each of them became a boy like this. They all took inspiration from this boy, can I tell you this boy in the story is not just an inspiration for you and I before us it was an inspiration for the Sahaba

00:59:08--> 00:59:50

each and every single one of them took the story and became a boy became whatever, dude, how am I going to be like this boy, and that's how it was brought victory upon their hands. So kalama for this is what you're supposed to do. Take this story today. Go and share it with your children. Share it with your friends, share it who with you, you know, and implement it. become like this boy, this boy is supposed to be an inspiration in your life. And if you were to hold on to it until you die Bismillah subhana wa Taala gives you steadfastness in your deen and he gives you that steadfastness until you meet him and until He rewards you with that which comes with it and there is genetic data

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

and how then he can follow suit. kavir one last point I say to you my brother's this boy was willing to die. You know why he was willing to die. One last point.

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

Subhana Allah sacrifice for the sake of Allah is bitter. It's sour, it's ugly if you do not know Allah

01:00:13--> 01:00:15

and sacrifice for the sake of Allah

01:00:16--> 01:00:34

is a desire when you know who Allah subhanho wa Taala is this boy, he had a desire to die for a lot because who knew he knew who Allah subhanho wa Taala was? Now I ask you a question, is there anyone that desires death? When in the origin he says in Surah, 10, Mr.

01:00:36--> 01:01:14

Tom unknown and mode, you wished for that? who wishes for that? Can a person actually reach the level in where he wishes for that? Yes, if you knew a loss of power data properly, when you know a lot of social properly and suddenly and you know who he is and the whole heart is filled with a lot, you become from those who are known and mote you wish for death for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala it becomes a desire, like it was a desire for this young boy, like it was a desire for the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters were asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make what we heard tonight a benefit for us. Ask him subhana wa Taala keep our

01:01:14--> 01:01:26

hearts firm and steadfast upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala to meet him in the Holy Father on a or something Allahu Allah God and Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as many wishes come along
