Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early or sabe Germaine, All Praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon His servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Brothers and Sisters in Islam today.

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

In this day and age that we live in, there are many Phaeton around us trials and tribulations. There's lots of injustice, and corruption and oppression that is taking place all around us.

00:00:41--> 00:00:54

And if a believer is not close to the Quran, he will definitely become lost. And many doubts will creep in his mind. And he will find himself in terms of his faith somewhere where he shouldn't be.

00:00:56--> 00:01:14

And so, one of the main matters, one of the main matters that protect a person's Iman protect his faith, from faith based doubts, misconceptions about Allah doubts about Allah and His mercy in the afterlife and so on.

00:01:15--> 00:01:33

And one main thing that protects a person from fitna Shubho Xiaohua desires and temptations and sins that are all around us is no doubt having a solid relationship with the plan. And more specifically, the stories that are mentioned in the Quran.

00:01:34--> 00:02:14

Allah azza wa jal, he says in the Quran, the purpose of why he reveals stories and marriage the mantra the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah azza wa jal he says we're Kula napoo Sonic I mean, I'm Russell man with a b2b for ADEQ Allah azza wa jal, he says these are the Stories of the Prophets and Messengers, we reveal them to for what purpose why why do I have to know about know how do you set up? Why do I have to know about Ibrahim alayhi salam, these are prophets that existed hundreds of years ago. We will not be questioned about what they did. They didn't know what we do. So why do we have to know about them? The only reason Allah azza wa jal says lead with a bitter be

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

for that, so that your heart remains firm and steadfast upon

00:02:21--> 00:03:06

the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon La Ilaha illa Allah and concerning the rest of the stories that are in the Quran, other than the Stories of the Prophets, like a story that is with us tonight, Allah azza wa jal says about them, locked at the canopy also see Mary Barra to Liuli and Bab in the Stories of the Prophets and the messages and the stories of the Quran. Indeed, various valuable lessons for people of intellect. O'Neill Al Bab, the people of intellect are the believers. I believe he is a person of intellect uses his mind in every circumstance and situation. Indeed, in the stories there are valuable lessons, valuable lessons for people of intellect.

00:03:07--> 00:03:56

You know, what I believe is in the Arabic language the word triphala, which we translated as valuable lessons, and wisdoms. enabler comes from the word Allah. And Allah means to cross the river, one from one side to the other. That's what Alberta is like Arabella is like a little boat that people get on and it takes them from one side to another side. The idea is that the stories of the Quran take you from misguidance to guidance. They take you from doubt to certainty. They take you from como te man, they take you from life of rebellion and sin to a life of righteousness and uprightness. This is what the emperor is. Every story in the Quran, you should find somewhere in

00:03:56--> 00:04:38

your life has become better. Whether it's you thinking of Allah and your thoughts of Allah azza wa jal and His mercy and His forgiveness and him being a witness to all matters that happen on earth. After a story in the Quran, your attitude and your perspective about Allah should change to the better. Your relationship with Allah should change to the better. In the end of that ayah Allah azza wa jal said, Well, who doesn't want Rama to lipo me you know, that the stories that are in the Quran are also who then guidance and this is what we're in need of. We seen a dinner set up almost the team 17 times a day in our salad. It should teach you an irony that the main thing we're supposed to

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

ask alone every single day is guidance. Where do I get this guidance from? Is it like something abstract? Like I just need to ask for guidance and I will look for my drop from the sky somewhere. Let's say the Quran Allah told you the stories or guidance, so when you say he then also opens the team, and then the Imam recite a story

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

But in the Quran, or you listen to the story of the Quran being narrated on to you, then you need to as older people of intellect switch around and see that this story. I shouldn't just listen to be entertained by events. I should be sourcing and extracting its guidance and seeing how I can develop and better my relationship with Allah azza wa jal. No doubt, there is not a book on Earth that has this effect. The only book on earth that can have a deep effect on your heart, and on your mind and on your thinking and your on your decisions is the Quran. No other book on Earth and that in and of itself is a miracle of the Quran. Well, who then want to Mattoon they call Me you me noon, and the

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

story is also our mercy for the believers. And you will see how as we begin to explain what we have with us. So because we are living Phaeton

00:05:55--> 00:06:39

and tests and calamities all around us, we cannot afford to distance away from Iran. This story that is found in the Quran, will no doubt enhance our relationship and our thinking of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it will bring us a step closer to Allah azza wa jal, my brothers and sisters in Islam, we've titled tonight's talk Youth in Action, the boy who changed the world. And this story, the vast majority of it was narrated by in the the salAllahu alayhi wasallam, in an authentic hadith that is found in Sahih Muslim and part of the story which is the end was mentioned by Allah azza wa jal in Quran in Fulton barouche.

00:06:40--> 00:06:52

And it is incredible and it's amazing to ponder over this fact, and that is that this is a story of a young boy and a king and a magician, and a minister involved as well.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

This young boy,

00:06:56--> 00:07:00

Allah azza wa jal mentions him in the Quran.

00:07:01--> 00:07:14

And he that means that this boy is a source of guidance and inspiration, not only for you and I, but for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the companions.

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

Can you imagine? Allah azza wa jal narrating the story of a young boy, what did the same boy do?

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

How did he reach such a status and a level with Allah?

00:07:26--> 00:08:09

That among millions and millions of events that happen on earth, Allah who choose this boy's story to make mentioned permanent mention of it in the Quran, and we're supposed to memorize it and have the story in our hearts. And the first one who benefits from this young boy is in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, and all the companions and then you and I that come? Huge, this is such a huge and a powerful concept to contemplate and ponder over. This is not some boy, this is a boy mentioned by Allah and then mentioned my in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam to all of us.

00:08:10--> 00:08:40

So we memorize his life. We stop at each and every single word and we analyze what is happening. Brothers and Sisters in Islam. The story of this young boy and the king and the magician takes place. After is Ali Salam, and before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam between ASA and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about 600 Is the story takes place somewhere between that time

00:08:41--> 00:08:59

whenever he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begins to narrate the story and he says, Ken Milliken FIM and Kana Kubla Khan, he gathered the Companions, if they left just like we gathered to do ask Allah azza wa jal to accept the gathering. And he says to them, much before you there was a king,

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

there was a king and Miss king.

00:09:05--> 00:09:14

He ruled his town, and he ruled these people. What can Allah who said, and he had by his right hand,

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

a magician, you had with him a magician.

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

And every king at the time had a magician with him. What's the point of the magician? You see, the king wants to say to the people that I'm your Lord, worship me. But it's very difficult to convince the people that you're the Lord. So how do you make it easy upon the people? You would bring a magician? The magician will put on a show some magic some something fascinating the eyes have never seen. And then the King would say, See, I told you as I'm your Lord. And then people say fine, okay, we accept that your God. Just like what Phil did fit out and had magicians magicians put on a show and the people accept that fit our own is all bucola Allah he's the highest

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

The knees the high Lord of ours is an honor. So this is what the king would do Canada who said, and you see, we want to make a reflection here. This is not just the story of the past, up until this day, the same concept is repeated even in our times. So you know, these Western governments that exist around the world, they are acting and playing the role of God of Allah subhanahu wa taala. This is how they claim it to be right. They want to create godless societies. They take it upon themselves to legislate matters there are only a right of Allah azza wa jal to legislate. So they will come and they will see that same sex marriage is permissible, it's lawful abortion laws come

00:10:46--> 00:11:04

in. Whenever they want to decide to bring something to mankind, they just make it up overnight in a cabinet meeting of this and the next day they produce and they make a law for the people. And yes, we got follow us. This is what we've told you to do that your liberty that your freedom and follow it.

00:11:05--> 00:11:10

And how do they deceive and how they trick the people? Well, they have no magician to their side, what do they have?

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

They have the media. And the media is just like a magician. The media is out there to deceive and change the perspective of people. That's what media does, and they're really good at it. So the media is the magician of these governments. When the the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned and taught us that one of the types of magic is magic of speech. He said in the middle Banila Sera, some of speech appears to be magic.

00:11:45--> 00:12:10

A foolish person could have such eloquence and such a deceptive way of speaking, that if he speaks a few words, he can cast lots of doubt into and make you turn towards his side. And this is exactly how it happens. So the story that's been narrated, is very similar, in fact, the same as the times that we live in today.

00:12:11--> 00:13:00

And this concept, how does it work in Islam in Islam, Allah azza wa jal sends a prophet, he sends a prophet, the prophet never claims to be God. Rather, the Prophet says, I am a messenger sent by God to you people. And I have a book for you. I have laws and legislations that you're supposed to follow. It's very difficult that people will not believe a prophet who you want the law point to as opposed to all of us. So what does Allah azza wa jal do? Allah azza wa jal will aid this prophet with a miracle with a Marchesa. So when the miracle is done by this Prophet, his claim of being a prophet becomes a lot more believable. So people will see to saw their see that stone that make it

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

into a she camel she come Alia they are pregnant camel in its 10th month. What a crazy thing to demand. Yet that's what they wanted. So they looked at the boulder and they have it. A she come huge 10th month it's pregnant, it begins to walk a lot but what a miracle. And you see that in your eyes, you're supposed to say a shadow and Leila Hey Lola, and you all follow the messenger of Allah. So Allah azza wa jal will aid the prophets with miracles. These devils will do it in another way. They'll have a magician to put on some deceptive magic to the people, and they convince the people that we are your lords. So then nothing sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says fella makeable. This

00:13:46--> 00:14:39

magician now reached old age, called Al Malik. He came to the king and he said to him, oh king, in my career, I've become old. I'm about to die. I've become weak. I can't do this work that I always do for you. Sabbath Eliyahu, lemon or limosa? Send me a hold em, send me a young boy. Or lamb is about the age of 12 1314 nuts with old lambs ages, send me a whole lamb. And I want to teach him magic. I'll spend the rest of my life teaching in my experience and my skills and my knowledge. And he'll be the next right hand man, have you? I'll tell you something my brothers and sisters in Islam, just observe this. See the people of falsehood, the people of disbelief. They work day and

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

night to keep their falsehood alive and ongoing in the community. They never give up. This guy he's dying. He's a magician. who lost his dying go. What do you want? What do you want? About what happens on off me affairs on oh man, you're dead. You're in your grief. You got no more concern

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:46

but they have a great concern to keep falsehood active and alive and keep the people deceived on Earth. Look at his effort. If this is the effort of the people of falsehood, how much more strong and intense should the efforts of the believers be in raising the young generation, the future Muslims should be a lot more. And these these believers, they actually have sober. They have sovereign over their falsehood. I use the word sober because Allah used it in the Quran. When he described the efforts, Allah azza wa jal, he said about the disbelievers that they sent to one another, and him shoe was building while and he had to come. They would say to each other, let's

00:15:46--> 00:15:57

walk let's match the streets and walk among the society in the community. Or Spirou. Allah Allah had to come and be patient upon your idols,

00:15:58--> 00:16:23

stick to the worship of the idols, uphold the worship of the idols, smooth Be patient, no problems, the disbelievers they have this when it comes to their deen and their agenda and whatever they want to poison the people if they are patient, non stop. They spend 1000s and millions and millions to continue their propaganda and the evil destruction of people in their mind in their football.

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

Where is the people of Islam? Where are the believers, our effort should be 1020 100 times more than what they put.

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

And especially in the young children, the young children that come to the masjid, those that sometimes we become irritated from them because of their noise in the back.

00:16:45--> 00:16:57

But whether you like it or not, this is the future Muslims. These are the people that will carry on Islam after you and I so there needs to be extra care and great care. If the disbelievers could see that,

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

then we should see that a lot more and a lot clearer.

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

So he said to him, send me a boy, so I can teach him

00:17:07--> 00:17:22

Why does he want the young boy? Why didn't the king Why didn't this magician say send me someone ask someone 3040 years old, someone more experienced than alot. Send me a young boy. Because the young boy

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

the younger AGC, actually the age of knowledge and learning,

00:17:28--> 00:17:45

the one who learns at a young age, firstly is quicker to learn. Secondly, knowledge that he learns when he's young is retained in his mind, as opposed to someone that's older 3040 50 What he learns he might forget the next day or the next week.

00:17:46--> 00:17:56

But what you learn when you're young, 1011 12 routines and it remains strong in the mind. And a child can always recall it.

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

Right? That's the idea. That's why he wants someone young.

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

And that's why we need to learn understand that the age of the youth is an age of seeking knowledge and learning.

00:18:10--> 00:18:53

One big problem we have in society today is we look at these young boys. And we say well don't go to art. Leave him on his Xbox. Leave him on his games. Let him play. This is an age of play and entertainment. Let him be let him live his life. What do you mean let him live his life. That age of 1314 15 this is the age of learning. of when do you think the age of learning is when? If it's not in the younger years when is that? This is why in the view sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had great concern for the youth. He will take them with he takes literally will take them with him.

00:18:54--> 00:19:03

He's on a camo he brings up an AR Belsey right it puts him behind him. He takes Sam out of the Elana which puts him behind him he's a young kids.

00:19:04--> 00:19:43

They always with him is always teaching them he comes to morality system I love I love you for the sake of Allah. Don't forget after every Salah see Allahu Marina Allah Niada advocate Kaushik records, diabetic, or itella heat coming in to hold them. He touched their hands. He embraced them, you hug them. He would give Salam to the young boys you would pass by them, you would see through them as Salam Alikum he would bring them certain things. There was a young man, his name was Oscar Mayer. Bobby Allah onwy his bird his pet bird died. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to to give him condolences.

00:19:45--> 00:19:54

He considered his considered his emotional security to birth. Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam was there, wherever the youth while he was always there,

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

and he would upgrade the skills he would give them

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Secrets, and he would test to see

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

would they keep this secret or would they let it go?

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

How can that be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with you once he gave wild bingeable A secret. What are the bingeable was a young boy, he wasn't even the age of 10.

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

And he would walk in he would pass by his mother.

00:20:23--> 00:20:32

And he would say to his mother Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam entrusted me with some knowledge I need to send to someone. She would say to him, what is it? She said, Mother, I can't tell you.

00:20:33--> 00:21:14

Let me some Allahu Allah you know Salam is testing. What we learn from this is the children at the age of nine should learn what Allah mana is, if I entrust him with something. By the by the age of nine, he should know how to keep a secret. Are you testing your own children on this or not? See the concern of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was his concern with the youth. And so this is why this magician wants a young boy for birthday, you know you will them and you are limo. So obviously, the magician requested from the king. The king is the king is in contact with all community. Who knows where the smart ones are the intelligence are not so bright ones, he knows them

00:21:14--> 00:21:37

all. So he knows where The Bright family is the intelligent families, he approaches them bring me your son, congratulations, he's going to have a position in the king in the palace of the king. What a this is a life changing opportunity for this family. I want you to imagine and think of this, and the start of this young boy, and what kind of life and Walby life was offered to him.

00:21:39--> 00:22:24

You have just been approached by the king. And he has come to your family and says we see potential in your young boy. He's going to be on the payroll of the king. You people are set for life. You don't have to work another day in your life. You will never face any financial calamity in your life. We've got you covered send me a boy who wouldn't jump on this opportunity. They jumped on the opportunity and sent the young son go. So this young boy goes and he begins to go to the magician and he starts to learn magic. LoJack about one of the worst professions in life is to be a magician. The worst people on Earth are the magicians and that's what he's learning.

00:22:25--> 00:22:31

Again, if you few party P the Santa Clara Hebron *a la he was semi aka lemma who for algebra.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

One day as he's leaving his house

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

on this daily

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

path to the magician.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

He heard a noise. Halfway on the road. You heard the noise coming from a cave.

00:22:50--> 00:23:03

He went up to the cave and he found a monk. An old Ben worshipping Allah has social and reading, reading what was the book that was revealed to me Sally?

00:23:05--> 00:23:35

Ellen G. He was reading the Injeel and he's reading the preserve pure teachings of Lisa alayhis. Salam, the Injeel that had no heat in it calling to the Oneness of Allah azza wa jal, but the distorted and the altered one. So this monk was a believer in a Sallys Salaam and inlet Ilaha illa Allah, what's this one doing in the cave? Because you need to understand something I'll explain that very quickly. After isa Alayhis Salam, for about 300 years,

00:23:36--> 00:23:44

and Injeel was as it is, hasn't been altered stiletto heels in there people are upon the pure teachings of a salahi's set up.

00:23:46--> 00:24:05

When the when the Christians finally met the Romans, and this was about the Neve 325 When the Christians met the Romans, the Romans rejected them and their belief. They said you people worship one mode.

00:24:06--> 00:24:20

And as the Romans we worship multiple gods, the Romans, they had multiple gods just like the Greeks, they have multiple gods like the pharaohs. So the Romans were actually key politest.

00:24:21--> 00:24:31

So the Christians came together, and they made an agreement that they are going to introduce the Trinity in their religion,

00:24:32--> 00:24:44

which is now the concept of, you know, the father of a Holy Spirit, the Son, I will merge them or see these are three different individuals, but they share this one person which is God.

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

They wanted to merge their religion of Tawheed having something about God with the religion of the Romans, that was shirk. And this is how the Trinity came about. And its first ever teaching was in 325. And that's when

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

In the Bible began to change in the teachings of Isa es Salaam changed and altered. And anyone after that time that upheld the true teachings of rissalah. You Santa was exiled, was tortured was punished was killed. And so this is why the monk is hiding in the cave. He had ran away from society. He's in a cave preserving his Deen doesn't want to mix with anyone. Right?

00:25:26--> 00:26:05

And this is why even the story of us Hybl Calif, the people of the cave that you read in on Friday, they were also in a cave and ran away from their people because they existed at that time as well. So this is why this monk is in the cave. So he heard him for Arusha who can who this young boy was amazed by the words of this monk. You see, the fifth pillar that hasn't been distorted, yet is always amazed by the words of Allah azza wa jal law hotword I tell you something my brothers and sisters in Islam Wallahi affect anyone, anyone that had a corrupt rebellious life and made the Toba?

00:26:07--> 00:26:56

Most likely, actually, definitely it was because of one area he heard. It's because of one Hadith he heard nothing more. That's the power of the Quran. That's the power of Allah has solutions, what one area is enough to change your life. And I actually have a lecture prepared for this. The one area that changed the lives of millions. And we go through examples how this guy says that this part of the hour changed his life. He became a Muslim because of it. Things that are incredible. So this is why the invoicing Arusha who he was amazed, because all of Allah speech is amazing in a Samana or an ASHA that the shin when they heard the Quran, they said we heard an amazing word.

00:26:57--> 00:26:58

So now

00:26:59--> 00:27:35

he goes to the monk. He's learning to heat. He's learning the purpose of life is he's learning Islam. And then he finishes from a monk and he goes to the magician. He learns magic. He goes back to his family, which is polar opposites. He's learning goofer and he's learning Amen. The worst type of golfer and the best type of Eman Fergana is at the Sahara mob era Hebei, Okada in the hall. And he began to make a habit of this everyday before he goes to the magician, passes by the monk learns about Allah about the hate, and then he goes to the magician.

00:27:37--> 00:27:40

I tell you something, and I need the young boys to listen very carefully.

00:27:41--> 00:27:51

This Monk and the boy teaches us something very important. And that is, as a young boy, you need to have a teacher that teaches you

00:27:52--> 00:28:15

do not come out to the world and share knowledge. When you have never learnt and appointed a teacher for yourself. This is dangerous and this is how the religion becomes distorted and corrupted. All along while you're thinking you're doing good. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a teacher and that would be if you believe Allah His salah.

00:28:17--> 00:28:31

Can you imagine that people once a man came to know this Allah Allah Allah Allah send them set the metal Salah you will build Danny Boyle, Allah you will build any above will Allah. He said the Messenger of Allah, which land is most beloved to Allah, which land is most hated to Allah?

00:28:32--> 00:28:37

You see, if I asked you this question, how many people would rush to answer

00:28:38--> 00:28:52

you've already got something you've made up something in your mind about which is the most beloved and which is the most hated? You know what Nabi SallAllahu? alayhi wa sallam responded to this man. He said to him, let agree. I don't know. What does he believe? Let me ask, Do you believe?

00:28:54--> 00:29:29

So he asked Gibreel what's the most beloved length Allah what's the most heated length Allah? So Gibreel said, I don't know. He went to Allah has social Allah azza wa jal answered the question he came back then the visa Allahu Allah wa Salam is a team that Allah said the most beloved land to Allah is the massage it and the most heated Lanta Allah is the marketplaces, not the marketplace itself, but because of what happens in the marketplace of gossip and slander and cheating and swearing and Riba and so on.

00:29:30--> 00:29:59

A simple question, yet the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa salam has a teacher to go back to and ask young boys don't ever and today because social media has made it very easy. Just open an account for yourself and say on on teaching the religion of Allah. You're not. If you don't have a teacher and you've learned under a teacher, you're teaching something completely different and false. You must have a teacher and so this young boy finds this monk and he's learning as a teacher on top of him

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

by and you will see his relationship with the TJ gurus in this story.

00:30:05--> 00:30:49

And look at this. The other beautiful thing is that the monk gave him time. He did not disregard Him. The monk didn't say, and I'm sitting him I'm about to die. Leave me on myself. I'm worshiping Allah just want to worship Allah in peace and die like this. I'm gonna have time for you. He didn't disregard it. So the advice is, as older people don't ever disregard anyone that comes to you for advice and knowledge, you don't know who Allah Azza wa Shalu us and make him the best and the biggest thing and a role model for mankind. You don't know, this monk had no clue what this boy will turn into. This boy ends up changing the world. All of those Hassan Earth, guess who's still there.

00:30:50--> 00:31:03

In this monks scale of good deeds, he never once rejected him and disregarded. He looked after, like a father looks after his own son. And he taught him and gave him the knowledge according to what he is able to do.

00:31:04--> 00:31:28

So this boy began to learn his faith. And at the same time he's learning magic is at the SAML Bolivar, who these go by. And this young boy starts to arrive late at the magician's police. Magician is frustrated by this, and I'm your teacher, you will be coming late Baba who? He started to become violent towards him. And he began to beat him up.

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

Why are you late, hits him. And then he teaches him.

00:31:34--> 00:31:54

And you know what, you might think Subhanallah hate him. But it's actually a good thing that the magician hits him, it's actually a good thing. Because this heating and this bad treatment of the magician is going to have a negative impact on this young boy. And it's going to turn him off from the magician altogether.

00:31:56--> 00:32:04

How was the monk treating him with kindness and compassion, he dealt with him like an own child of his.

00:32:05--> 00:32:23

And this is going to make a big difference in the decision that this boy is going to make. So I bring you to a point now, the way you treat people, and the manners you have with people is very important. And it plays a huge role in shaping their personality and their decisions.

00:32:25--> 00:32:39

Subhanallah Allah, good treatment can treatment. Imagine the monk was the one hitting the young boy. And the magician was the one being compassionate and kind with the young boy. What do you think the young boy would have become

00:32:40--> 00:32:59

very easy to the results of what we're going to share would have been completely different. And so this is why the call to Allah and the parents as well. And anyone who has responsibility over young children must be very delicate and extra careful and compassionate with the young ones.

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

More than the compassion and the delicacy a surgeon will have with his patient as he's operating on his heart.

00:33:11--> 00:33:18

You know why? Because the cometa alone and the parent the way doing surgery on the boy's face.

00:33:21--> 00:33:25

And the surgeon is doing surgery on a limb and an organ, the heart

00:33:26--> 00:33:31

which was more important, your faith is more important than your heart.

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

What sort of benefit if your heart is in perfect condition but there's no emotion in it.

00:33:40--> 00:34:04

So the die the call to Allah must be more sensitive upon those who is preaching to then a surgeon with his patient, while while this is the only some beautiful advice that was given by Sheikh and embarrass him Allah, when he was addressing a group of students of knowledge, wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says mechana difficulty che Eliza

00:34:06--> 00:34:16

anything that has compassion and kindness with it, it'll always be good, to look beautiful. And anything that has violence and roughness with it.

00:34:18--> 00:34:23

Election, it will be disgusting and despicable. Subhanallah

00:34:24--> 00:34:54

and I tell you something, you know, the question is is not always about how many people became Muslims because of the good treatment of Muslims. You know, you know, many, many, many became Muslims because of the good dealing of Muslims. But the real question that we're supposed to ask one another, how many left Islam and how many or to become Muslims but abandoned the entire path because of the bad manners and treatment of Muslims

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

that we need to be careful of and that we need to change and we need to take in

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

permission from the story that even in tough and difficult and incredible times, the believer always needs to be known by his manners and good treatment of others. He needs to be known that the smoke is existing in a very difficult time. Very difficult time he can't even watch you worship Allah in peace. Yet he upholds his manners as a believer. So this is something that will save us and give us guidance and light in this time of trouble and tribulation.

00:35:29--> 00:35:30

For sugar Valley Kala, right.

00:35:31--> 00:35:53

So the young boy, he complained to the monk, he said to me a monk, this magician is beating me up. It's too painful. What do I do? Give me advice. Say he's going back to his teacher to take advice. He said to him, either har*a said healthful habits early early. Well, either har*a like for poor habits. And he said, he gave him a solution away out.

00:35:54--> 00:36:02

He says, if the magician hits you again, just tell him Look, I was held back my family, my family held me back. That's why I'm late.

00:36:03--> 00:36:29

And if you feel that your parents are going to become rough and abusive towards you, because you're coming late, tell them the magician held me back. That's lying. But this type of lying is permissible for the greater benefit. And this is a principle in Islam, right? You can imagine now I give you a scenario. Let's say someone is hiding in your house. And a gunman rocks up to your house. And he says is such and such in your house?

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

Are you allowed to lie in this situation?

00:36:34--> 00:37:07

Of course, my say is not in my house, because you're going to save a life. Don't stand there and say, Allah, he's in my house, Allah I fear Allah azza wa jal, I need to speak the truth Allah accept my taqwa and honesty from becoming disease inside the house, let the then you cause the destruction and the death of a life. So the idea is you need to weigh up the situation. And times this line would be permissible. So this is what this old monk wise monk teaches this young boy. And that's what he implements for this time that he's still going to the

00:37:09--> 00:37:15

magician's house for baby number one, because ALEC is out there, but in our limiting can have a certain nests. Now,

00:37:17--> 00:37:21

there's going to be a shift in events. One day, as he's walking

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

to the magician's house,

00:37:26--> 00:37:51

all of a sudden, there was a huge beast that had blocked the path of the people. People on this side can no longer get to this side, and those on this side can no longer get to that side. There's a huge beast. In a tyranny, the one duration mentions there was a lion, Allahu Allah, but there was a huge beast that very scary. No one has ever seen its signs and everyone's moving back. And then no one knows what to do.

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

So this young boy took upon himself

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

that he's going to do something.

00:37:59--> 00:38:06

So he approaches this beast. And he says, Today, I'm going to find out.

00:38:07--> 00:38:18

Alone, I'm going to find out if the religion of the magician is better, or the religion of the monk. He's going to find out today.

00:38:19--> 00:38:57

So he took a small stone in his hand, and he approached this beast. And he said, Allahumma Encana Umrah he be held up by a lake. I mean, Emery said Falcon Heavy hit dab. He said, Oh Allah, if the religion of the monk is more beloved to than the religion of the magician, then kill this beast. And he threw the stone and the Beast died. And the path opened up for the people and they walked Lahore o'clock. But there's a lot of things to reflect Brothers and Sisters in Islam. The idea here is this.

00:38:58--> 00:39:06

Notice his words. He said, Oh Allah, if the religion of the monk is more beloved to you than the religion of the magician.

00:39:08--> 00:39:50

Why did he say if the religion of the monk is more beloved than the religion of the magician? Why did he swap it around? He could have said if the religion of the magician is more beloved to the number religion of the month and killed this beast. He swapped it, number one, that proves that he's almost convinced about the religion of the monk. He's almost there. His filter is ticking in there. And everything he did in this event was what the monk had taught him who taught this boy that there's something called DUA and there's something called Allahumma. It in the monk had taught him Allah, the monk had taught him there is a relationship with Allah called the DUA. The monk had

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

taught him that Allah he's and he's the one who accepts a DUA,

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

who taught him that Allah loves and he hates when he said in his dua

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Allah, if the religion of the monk is more beloved to who taught him, that there are certain things that Allah loves, and third, certain things that Allah hates.

00:40:12--> 00:40:20

Then he said, Oh Allah, kill this beast. And everyone there knows that a small stone thrown or destroyed to anything.

00:40:21--> 00:40:24

Yet he knows if my dry is answered,

00:40:26--> 00:40:44

taking into consideration the stone can't do anything. That means Allah actually caused it to die, not the stone Allah. And the stone was a means. And that's how I will be convinced Allahu Akbar, adore my brothers and sisters in Islam, when a person is confused, is the greatest medicine out of your confusion.

00:40:46--> 00:40:48

Now, so he made this dua,

00:40:50--> 00:41:01

and this beast died. And that's it. He is now absolutely convinced that La Ilaha illa Allah. Now he's on a mission.

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


00:41:07--> 00:41:39

the idea is some people today, they say, oh, Allah, if you exist, few exist and show me a sign. How many times have you heard a story about people that make this die in a moment of confusion? The just the mere fact that you said, Oh, Allah, I'll see you there, you really believe about who you're calling to, who you're calling to, you're calling to summon, you don't have to see anything. The fact that Allah has, so we can allow you, by your own will and choice to call onto him. That's enough of a sign.

00:41:41--> 00:42:23

It is He subhanahu wa taala, who gives you the ability to call on theme that means you know, there is Allah, and you know that you heard you and you're expecting a response. Hello, Sam, and che Laila and Mama. And there are miraculous signs every day all around us. I wanted to ask the chef about this matter. And I said to him, Give me something give me something catchy that I can use with people, to convince them about this matter of miracles being seen in front of our eyes every day. But we've just come, we've become so heedless towards it. He says, he says this. He said, and I'll give you this as an example, say, this is a wooden table that if I kept this wooden table, and I

00:42:23--> 00:42:43

pulled out an orange from here, and I said the people is an orange. Would you all be surprised and amazed? No doubt? How did it orange come out from this wooden table? Because this is something supernatural Subhan Allah, we've never seen anything like this. But you know what?

00:42:44--> 00:42:55

Apples every single day are picked from wooden tables. But it's just something they call a branch and

00:42:57--> 00:43:04

a trunk and branches and leaves and then you pick the proof of fruit often, every single day, oranges are coming out of wood

00:43:06--> 00:43:33

in an American dinner of itself, that should give you the same shock and amazement, as though I just pulled out an orange from this tree, or from this table. It's the idea we're seeing it every single day. So but what we've become used to, we've become numb and dull. And so we don't see the signs a lot enough for us. Allah give us another sign that your problem Allah azza wa jal has put signs all around us. So whoever wants the truth will be able to see the truth.

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

Follow my hair for Katella hair, one more one Bong.

00:43:39--> 00:44:24

He killed this beast and the people walked. I tell you something. Now, this young boy is going to have a huge influence and a positive influence upon his community. But you know why the people looked up to him? Do you know why? Pay attention, because he he done a social service for them. He served them. When they saw this. He became the talk of the town. You know, there was a big beast and there was a young boy and he stood in front of Angie's throat and wallah, this young boy Subhanallah you know, if it wasn't for them, boy, we wouldn't have been able to go to our families, the business that they would have halted with, you know, subhanAllah this young boy became a source of

00:44:24--> 00:44:35

inspiration to his people because he served them. And so the point here, if you want to have an actual influence upon people, you need to first start by serving them.

00:44:36--> 00:44:50

See what their problems are. Be there for them in their time of pain and calamity and grief. Offer them advice, offer the money if you're able to help them financially, do a social service for people

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

when people just rock up, right? And give a talk, or nowadays open account in social media and ask

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

So why don't people listen to me? People don't. This is not how it works. And every single prophet serve these people, before he became a prophet, every single prophet serve these people.

00:45:13--> 00:45:17

So that's the idea. And this is what this story is teaching us.

00:45:18--> 00:46:00

And this is why one of the great matters that you're supposed to raise the children upon, you know, there are certain manners you're supposed to raise children upon if you want them to actually be influential leaders in the future. One of these matters is to teach them to help others to serve others. Because a great leader is someone who was raised and nurtured upon helping others and the society and his community. Subhanallah such a person doesn't have to speak a lot of words. If later on there is a problem in the community, all he has to say is a few words, and people respect him and look up to him because of service he has done for them. And that's what we're learning from this

00:46:00--> 00:46:11

boy. And this, this event of this beast dying. It's a Kurama that Allah gave him. You know what a Karamay is, what is a gala?

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

It's a miracle that is given to other than the prophets. Why does Allah azza wa jal give people cut our mat? There are many reasons one of the reasons to keep them steadfast upon the deen. And whoever was given a Kurama a miracle, other than the prophets, that doesn't necessarily mean he's better than another believer who never received or was granted a cola in his life is something you need to understand. So just because this Khurana happened, it doesn't mean that this boy is better than the monk for example.

00:46:47--> 00:47:14

And so this boy becomes the talk of the town. And then the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Fattah ra Heba Bala who, this young boy is excited he went to the monk and he informed him about what happened. He said in this what happened there was a beast and I killed it and I made destroy it. And I'm absolutely convinced that Allah azza wa jal is the One Lord worthy of worship Allahu Akbar, and monk congratulates him or mashallah you entered into Islam.

00:47:15--> 00:47:50

Then Allah had this monk, listen to what he said, he said to him a boon a mighty son, until the OMA follow me, today, you are much better than me, what I call the humility of the teacher with his students. And that's how he should be. You know, a successful teacher is the one who resists students that become much better than him that success. As for the teacher, who's arrogant, and making sure that no one precedes him in level and degree and knowledge, then that's an unsuccessful teacher.

00:47:51--> 00:48:06

So look at this, a lot of us on this, this man could be better than the young boy, but that's his humility. And that's what we are taught as believers. You know, one of the things that we are taught as believers is that when you meet someone,

00:48:07--> 00:48:49

you should have in your heart, a belief that that person is better than me. I sit here with the belief that all of you before me are better than me. But then you say, I hope that I'm better than you in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. That's what you hope, but as conversation and when we meet each other, that's the mentality that is supposed to be in your mind. You meet your brother, with the attitude that he's better than you. If he's younger than you, that means he committed less things than you. So he's better than you. If he's older than you, that means he's worshipped Allah a lot more than you have worshipped, so he's better than you. In every sense, you can convince

00:48:49--> 00:49:23

yourself that he's better than you. One of the main diseases we have in Myanmar today is people belittling one another, thinking that they are better than them. You see someone upon a sin Subhanallah look at these people. Right? What about your own sins? What about the shortcomings that you have between you and Allah assertion? So this door is endless, we can open and talk about an oldie, but have this kind of knowledge and inspiration from this story, that when you meet someone, he's better than you, and you can hope that you are better than him in the sight of Allah azza wa jal.

00:49:25--> 00:49:56

And anyone who assumes he's better than someone else, then that is the exact words and the methodology of bliss is not what the bliss said. When he said on a higher minnow, I'm better than Adam. So anyone who actually dares to think like that, no matter what kind of level you're in, in your knowledge in your worship, you are treading the path of a bliss. So one needs to be careful and refrain from this type of attitude and thinking and from these words.

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


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

And don't get this wrong. Sometimes you can advise someone of wrong they're doing. And that doesn't necessarily mean that you're seeing you're better than them. But there is a common misunderstanding among people. That if someone advised me about my sins, about my job about my hair cut about my beat, automatically, the one being advised, thinks, who's this guy? He's trying to sound like he's better than me. That's not the case.

00:50:30--> 00:51:04

Advice is supposed to be given. advice comes from compassion and heart loving hearts of believers towards one another. Because we're on the same earth. We have the same Lord, and we're supposed to be encouraging one another upon goodness. If I see you falling short in your relationship with Allah, I'll say Brother, come here. Allah Azza should forbid this. This is haram and that's how it's supposed to be done. And my attitude while saying this, I'm not thinking I'm better than you. I'm just correcting you in something that you need correction on now.

00:51:06--> 00:51:48

By him, we're in Dhaka to tele Talita fella to do La La La Harcourt. He said Tim today you are better than me. Look, he said Tim Cook below him in America, my Bella Masha Allah, look at the person you have become very young boy, if this is what Allah has given you, and you're young, what is going to happen with you when you grow older and older? That's how the monkey is convincing himself that this young boy is better than him. Monkey looks at himself. I'm an old man, sitting in this cave, worshiping Allah distance myself from the community, I don't want their trouble. See, see how he's convincing himself, yet, this month doesn't know that everything the boy that he's going to

00:51:48--> 00:52:15

do, it's going to be all in the skills of this monk SubhanAllah. Then he said to him something important. And he said, we're in Nicosia tele, he said to my son, you will be tested. You will be going through intense calamity and test after test. And if you were ever to be tested, Falletta do lolly. Don't tell the people where I am. keep that a secret between me and you. Don't give up my location.

00:52:17--> 00:52:20

Subhanallah I want you to think of something now. This young boy

00:52:22--> 00:52:23

has the choice

00:52:24--> 00:52:51

of continuing to go to the magician. Set up his future forever. Remember, make as much money as he wants demand whatever house and palace he wants. He's going to be the right hand man of the king. He's going to live the best life according to some people they think this is the best life Money, wealth, marry who you are houses, cars, you can have what you want to the right hand man of the king.

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

He could have went down that path. Or the other option is this path. An old man poor

00:53:01--> 00:53:06

he's a fugitive of the law he's ran away basically is seen as a criminal.

00:53:07--> 00:53:10

The boy is being told be careful, you're gonna be tested.

00:53:12--> 00:53:25

down this path no wealth is promised. No dunya is promised. Yet what did this boy do? You know that famous thing of people say Dean over duniya that is a practical implementation of it.

00:53:26--> 00:53:40

And he preference and prioritize the Dean over this dunya but look what kind of dunya he had. He had it all set up. And he's young, and he can enjoy yeas and ears on it.

00:53:41--> 00:54:01

That's why this boy becomes a motivation. Allah azza wa jal changes the world on hands like this, that it never poisoned by the dunya and never distracted by its glitz and glamour 's and temptations and attractions. It was there. He doesn't even have to ask for it. It's already come to his doorstep.

00:54:03--> 00:54:52

Yet he abandoned that all and he was ready to say La Ilaha illa Allah. I'm not going to face tests. Let it be. For Allah sake. Allahu Akbar when Eman hits the heart, and he penetrates the heart. Nothing could be offered to you as a replacement for it was my quad. So this boy has changed the world now. That's why in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, one of the seven categories that into the shade of Allah on the Day of Judgment is what what was the second one? Share Buddha nature of your party let a young youth a young boy that was or a girl that was raised upon the deen and nurtured upon the deen of Allah because it's a big sacrifice. So there's a huge reward that then you

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

come out of your grief. Everyone is panicking, they Allah go go to the sheet, sit under the shade relax, wait until everything is over.

00:55:00--> 00:55:33

And then while much before that you'll enter the paradise. What a reward to you the day of day the day of judgment is no joke. People coming out of the grave like Lucas running around everyone's terrified naked big footed uncircumcised. Where do we go people are drowning in their sweater, chaos. I can one category youth that will raise on the deen of Allah illustrate to the sheet. You got nothing to do with this? Straight to the sheet. there with the Prophets the message is relax until your time comes what I call it.

00:55:35--> 00:55:38

Now reward was big because the sacrifice was big.

00:55:41--> 00:55:53

in Nicosia to patella. You're going to be tested. He's been told this in the first day of his Islam. Deen is no joke. You see, Leila. Hey, Lola, you better prepare for its path.

00:55:54--> 00:56:06

You know, some people have this distorted misunderstanding. They think that the DIC La Ilaha illa Allah, Allah now is going to love me and I should never take Visa test in my life ever again.

00:56:07--> 00:56:48

Then when the test starts hitting him, his brother, all I saw since I said Leila, hey, Lola, who tests all I saw when I came to the masjid and started praying my first solo to sickness and problems and trials and I didn't have this in my rebellious corrupted life. Was it all hitting me now in Islam? You have Allah doesn't need you to go back to the same way you want. Go. That can be seen as a test. Allah is cleansing you with it. He's purifying you from your rebellious in your life that you had. And this happened to everyone. Look, the day Adam Allah is Salam ate from the tree. Then he made a Tober I did he make a Toba in the Paradise. Allah accepted his Stober.

00:56:49--> 00:56:55

The first day of the Stober, he was faced with a severe test and a huge calamity what was

00:56:56--> 00:57:02

removed from the paradise onto Earth? Is there any greater calamity than that? First day after the tovala tests?

00:57:03--> 00:57:23

We have a companion of men of an ambulance. He said he came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and he complained to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about whether you should do features and he wouldn't do ask them about the newness that he finds in his body since the day he accepted Islam.

00:57:24--> 00:57:34

Chapelle Allah tested him the first day he said our shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah the next day became sick, so sick, they almost died in that sickness as another narration mentioned.

00:57:35--> 00:57:46

The idea is you'll be tested. And the same thing the monkey is synced to this boy and the magician's as well for out when the meet their first search that Allah and accepted Allah, what happened.

00:57:48--> 00:58:13

The the fit out friend in the mall, he's going to tie them up to the trunk of palm trees. And he's going to cut their hands in the legs of opposite sides of opposite ends as a calamity. That's a calamity after their first day of October. So that's what we need to understand anyone who comes this path will be tested. tests will come.

00:58:15--> 00:58:27

What kind of will ammo you bring on ACMA? Will also will you there witness min say Allah azza wa jal give this boy yet another another karamba another miracle, and that was that his dua was now accepted.

00:58:29--> 00:58:38

So he used to go to the ACMA. Hell, ACMA is a person that was born blind. And he would go to the Abbas Abbas is a skin disease but leprosy

00:58:40--> 00:58:43

and he used to cure them by the permission of Allah.

00:58:45--> 00:58:59

For some actually sued Maliki can academia for attack will be headache, I feel so the minister of the King started to hear about this young boy that he is curing people in the minister of the king was blind. ACMA meaning he was born blind.

00:59:01--> 00:59:41

All right, so this minister, you know, the ministers what they're all about dunya they know money, they know gifts, they know bribery, so they know the ministers. So he went and gathered so many gifts so much dunya and he went to the young boy, and he said to him, Look, I've gathered and collected all these gifts for you. I'll give it to you if you can bring back my site by so now the young boy he says to him, in Nila he had I don't care what anyone in MHV Allah Allah he's the one who cures for an undetermined tabula. If you believe in Allah, I will make dua and Allah would kill you and He will return your site.

00:59:43--> 00:59:56

The priest is speaking about money. I'll give you this much gifts. The young boy didn't even comment on this. He didn't say the laws I can look at other one your gifts keep them on that he didn't even regard it because it means nothing to him.

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

The boy commented

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

inochi depart when this minister actually believed, because they still think that he's going to the magician, all that this is his magic, he can cure the blind, please come to my site.

01:00:14--> 01:00:25

He took opportunity and he taught him about Elijah, I don't cure. I didn't cure. It's Allah, the One who cures, believe in Allah I'll make dua and Allah will kill you. And so

01:00:27--> 01:00:46

this is something that we learn Muslim doctors should take advantage of the cofell patients and preach Islam to them. Just like what this person the same boy is doing preach Islam, my canary salAllahu alayhi wa sallam he visited a Jewish boy that was about to die.

01:00:47--> 01:01:14

After he visited him and spoke to him and comforted him, he said to him, Aslam, embrace Islam. And the young boy looked at his dad, and his father said, obey the Messenger of Allah Akbar, Al Qasim, and that young Jewish boy accepted Islam. When the visa Allahu Allahu wa salam walks out and he says that Hamdulillah that Allah saved this child through me see the ID, this yawning that it is

01:01:15--> 01:02:01

when you visit a disbeliever and it's allowed to visit a sick disbelieving or problems. That Hadith was the proof for it, then expose them to the religion of Islam. For Atal Malik. And so now he's got his site back. So the minister came back to the king. And he sat with him, just like he always does on a normal day. So the king noticed and he said the mama daddy gave us a look who returned your site to he said or be my Lord. The king said to him, our lack of ability. Do you have a lord besides me? He said to him, Yes, my Lord and your Lord is Allah. So he took him and he kept beating him beating him beating him until he gave up the location of the boy and the story of the boy and the

01:02:01--> 01:02:22

boy is the one who told me Leila is his army. So he brought him behind but but the minister steadfastness EDD decree incredible. Yanni, the monk has always been worshiping Allah, we understand his steadfastness. And the boy has learned a lot about Allah and miracles are happening. So we understand the steadfastness of the minister.

01:02:23--> 01:03:12

I think the champion in the story is the Minister. Look at his firmness. Just yesterday, just a few hours ago, he started came back then he's able now to observe the law. He can see color has meaning he can see his family, his wife, his children, he can enjoy life with his site. Yet he will not prefer a duniya over the deen of Allah so it shouldn't once it has penetrated into these harp mahyco And he looked at it, he seemed to the king, my Lord and your Lord is Allah Allahu Akbar. The fun that's the steadfastness in teaching it to hate after having learned just hours ago, you have Subhanallah every individual in this story is a champion

01:03:13--> 01:03:13

Maha Aqua.

01:03:15--> 01:03:15


01:03:17--> 01:03:18

the idea is here.

01:03:21--> 01:03:44

Unreasonable Allahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us is teaching us through this part of the story, that when a person becomes steadfast upon his Deen, there are signs for this. Look at how your dunya has become in your eyes has to do to become worthless and insignificant in your eyes. If it has the next real steadfastness.

01:03:45--> 01:03:53

You need to see since the day it made the Toba and turn back to Allah. What have your priorities in life become?

01:03:54--> 01:04:13

Have your dreams changed? Has your thinking changed? Has your personality changed? Have your decision changed? Do you see this world the life as something insignificant compared to the afterlife? The see the afterlife and meeting a man is being the greatest priority in your life or not?

01:04:15--> 01:04:22

Because if these matters have changed in your life, then that is how steadfastness upon Eman looks like.

01:04:23--> 01:04:36

And we learn this from the minister from the monk from the young boys. Look how this thinking has changed. Look how their personality has changed. Look at what their greatest concern is.

01:04:37--> 01:04:59

When the boy and the minister had the world at their disposal, that's what steadfastness looks like. So this is what we're learning from this part of the story. And of course, from the practices in the ways of Allah azza wa jal is that he tests his righteous leaves. Because what happens now in the beast on Allah, Allah you are setting themselves. The young boy is brought in

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

And the king says to the young boy, he says to my son, has your magic reached the point where you're able to give sight to the blind and cure the one who has a skin disease? He says thinking, I don't give cure 31. Allah is the One who gives cure. So the king took the young boy, and he began to beat him up until the young boy could no longer bear the pain. And he gave up the location of the monk. So they brought the monk and they said to the monk, because he's the head of everything. Now they broke the head. They said to Him, denounce your dean.

01:05:41--> 01:06:28

And if you do not denounce your dean, we're going to slow you in half. He did not denounce his Dean. So they brought a soul and soul, strong man, and they would dig the earth until they buried him to his waist, because waist down is already split in half. Then he took the handsaw and he put it right in the middle of his head. This is a monk an old man. He's not electrical sole, meaning the dog needs a few minutes to be done. And he began through the skin, the bone, the brain, the flesh all the way until he reached the end and he split him right in half. Allahu Akbar.

01:06:29--> 01:06:39

And this is happening in front of the young boy and the minister as well as seeing this that is no joke here. The King is going to do what he wants to do. Allahu Akbar.

01:06:40--> 01:07:22

But he see that's di D. Anyone who wants to be steadfast and claim steadfastness about the deen will be will be exposed to trial and calamity, no matter what the Allahu Anhu was not that visa vie de la or UCLA or the Allahu Anhu was mounted Alia obey Allah one was killed and mounted feasterville Allah. And so many prophets were killed and martyred very severely learn so many of their followers that happen to them as well. So it's very clean. Why does Allah test Why does he test the righteous believers? Because number one, this is how life is. This is what Allah promised, right? This imperfect world that we live in, is actually a perfect testing ground for the believers.

01:07:23--> 01:08:13

Allah tests those who he loves. He tests the believers so he can bring out the best of worship from them. He tests them so that the worship of Sabah could be perfected and it could be apparent on your limbs and on your tongue. Allah azza wa jal tests the believers so that the worship of torque could could manifest on your lips and on your tongue, so that the worship of dua becomes apparent on your tongue. So that the worship of is still raw, fairly standard, seeking only Allah's help and crying to Allah can become apparent. You tell me, how are you going to fulfill 100% Superb and thought cool and good for him? Allah and his dad and his dad, and talk gonna put on life you're never tested? How

01:08:13--> 01:08:24

are these beautiful types of Lordship that lead you to the paradise? How will they ever ever manifest them become displayed on your body in your turn if you're not tested how?

01:08:25--> 01:08:53

They weren't? So Allah azza wa jal tests you so these beautiful worships come out, and the reason for your paradise. At the same time you lose nothing. You're benefiting as well. Through this test, you're being purified and cleansed. You're being raised in elevated ranks. And you're also growing stronger in your Eman. Preparing for the meeting with Allah azza wa jal. That's why in the DUA, Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam he would say,

01:08:54--> 01:09:02

well, attention mostly but NFE de Nina imaginisce, the response center hotel Allah, don't test us in our deep.

01:09:03--> 01:09:44

You see, you can you can either make one of two, you will either be tested in your faith in your deed. Like if you abandon Salah to abandon the Quran, you abandon and hijab, you abandon the teaching of Islam hates us is dangerous, you've been tested in your faith. Or you could either be tested in your worldly matters, health and well, relationships and so on in the diet, and the seller would say, oh, Allah, don't make our tests in our faith. What does that mean? means make them here in the world, they like don't test our faith. And then he would say, well, actually dunya Kabbalah mean, and don't make this world they live our greatest concern, so much so that it becomes our

01:09:44--> 01:09:56

priority and we forget about the afterlife and preparation for it altogether. So tests will come in this world they live to keep you in that range where the dunya does not overtake your heart.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

Then they brought you

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

The Minister denounced your deen he didn't denounce his Deen you chop them in half as well in front of the young boy.

01:10:08--> 01:10:39

I tell you something, it is from the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal only upon this OMA is that if we were ever to fall in a situation like this, and it was requested from us to abandon our deed, we are allowed to utter the words of gopher by force, so long as our heart is still inclined upon Amen and Leila Hey, llama, is a mercy only for this owner. The nations of the past didn't have this. They had to be patient and go through whatever they're going through.

01:10:40--> 01:11:19

Like in the Mercy of Allah upon this woman, this is why the visa Selim says that Allah does not hold accountable my Alma for the mistakes they do for the forgetfulness, and for what they are forced to do Lahore at the mercy of Allah, so I should, but at times it becomes worship, that you just remain patient, such as if a person was a leader and a role model for people. And that if he failed, and other people will follow and make disbelief. In that case, a person must remain firm, and be patient for the sake of Allah associate. Then they brought the young boy. And the king said to him, My dear son.

01:11:23--> 01:11:29

Afterwards, we said that now the boys turn, he said to the boy, denounce your deed, if you don't denounce your deal.

01:11:30--> 01:11:45

He's not going to kill him in the same manner he did to the ovens because he needs to continue to allow struggle, maybe maybe because this boy has the potential. So I want to get rid of him quickly. He said to him, denounce your dean. So he rejected, so I'm not denouncing my dean.

01:11:46--> 01:12:22

So the king, he commanded a group of his army, he said, Take this young boy and take him up to the highest mountain, and the highest mountain in town was noon, go all the way up and give him one last chance if he denounced us bring him back. If he doesn't denounce his Dean throw him and let him die, thrown off a cliff. They took him all the way up. Imagine what's going through the mind of this boy. He gets up to the top, and he says, hola, hola, McWeeny Hindi, Allahu Akbar, once again, a dua in times of intense calamity. He says, Oh Allah, deal with them in the way you want. Look at his manners with Allah. He doesn't say oh Allah.

01:12:23--> 01:13:06

Send the lightning bolt on the O Allah shake the earth from underneath Allah allow the earth to solids it No, he knows that Allah has the best of planets. Now I don't know why just make it Oh ALLAH. Deal with him the way you want to get his man is with Allah, his diet and a dua in a time of intense calamity. I tell you something. Your relationship with Allah is according to how much do you make a person who's active in his dua. He has a good and a strong relationship with Allah. A person who abandoned adware and hardly mix definitely has a weak relationship with Allah. Why? Because the one who's making dua to Allah, he talks to Allah often the one who abandons the DUA literally

01:13:06--> 01:13:52

saying, I don't have time to talk to Allah. He says what it is. A dua plays a big role in determining what relationship you have with Allah. So he made a dua in this troubling difficult time. And Allah azza wa jal commanded the mountain to shake. See that a mountain usually doesn't shake. Actually, the mountain reduces earthquakes that happens on the lands around it. But when you ask Allah, nothing is impossible and Allah will show you miracles. So this, the the mountain shook, and they all fell off the cliff and they all died Allahu Akbar, Allah azza wa jal answers the call of the distressed whenever he calls him. So then this young boy decided to go back to the king. He

01:13:52--> 01:14:33

could have ran away, but the boy is on a mission, a mission that is far bigger than saving his life. He's there to save the deen of Allah and to revival Islam will Eman in the hearts of the people. So he's not concerned about himself as much as he is concerned about his Deen once again, that's true steadfastness. So he walks back to the king and he enters the palace. The King is shocked. He says the MER farmhouse. hubback He says Where are your friends and the friends of the king the other the Friends of the boy and he got so embarrassed that he ascribed them to the boy the worry friends. He says in Kenya Ferny him Allah. Allah looked after the mullah and dealt with him. So he commanded

01:14:33--> 01:15:00

another group of his people he said take this young boy and put him in a hole a boat and go all the way until you reach the middle of the ocean when you reach the middle of should tell him to denounce his Deen if he doesn't use denounces the influence. So once again they did that hiccup there he says Allah mcleaney Hindi my *, save me from them deal with them the way you want. And Allah azza wa jal destroyed those people. A big wave came they all died and he

01:15:00--> 01:15:05

came back and he entered upon the king. He entered upon the king.

01:15:06--> 01:15:33

And the king now is confused. So the young boy he says to the king, look, you will never be able to kill me. Unless you listen to what I have to say to you. The only way you can kill me take an arrow from my quiver. An arrow from my quiver. Why did he say from my quiver, not from yours, because he's the Kings quivers are as useless as his soldiers. Take one from mine. Put it in the bow.

01:15:34--> 01:15:51

Roll it all the way back. And before you release it, say Bismillah AR The loader Bismillah in the name of this boy, that's the only way you will kill me. Look, look, look at the humiliation is teaching the king how to use a bow and arrow. So anyway, the king wants to get rid of him. So he takes him

01:15:52--> 01:16:37

a day they gather they gather the entire population about 20,000 Even cathedral himolla mansions, they all gather puts them all there gets this arrow and he says Bismillah behenyl Hula and he releases it and it enters Sabra and hula here between the E and the HIT THE TEMPLE temple area. And the boy puts his hand Allah so Bertie, he Why was this mentioned in the reason he did this? Spam? I can think of one similar narration among the companions, one of the companions. He had a injury in his hand. He put his hand on it, and he says, Oh Allah, it never clean. We're in Nikka to Barry Cofield Killeen. He said, Oh, Allah, this is little, this is little for your sake. And you put

01:16:37--> 01:17:09

Baraka in that which is little, what is he saying? He's saying, make a small injury, Injury become a big injury that he causes my death and I die for your sake, Mohawk. And so the young boy is putting it it's the similar situation. This dish is little for your sake, put Barack in this little and allow me to die as a Shahidan to come to you. Allahu Akbar, Allahu, and he felt and he died. He died the day he died. The Dawa lived. Every single person in that gathering said, Bill, Bill.

01:17:10--> 01:17:55

Bill went up. We believe in the Lord of this boy. Why did they believe because they saw in their eyes, that this boy was not able to be killed except by the name of his law. That means there is a lot and he's the truth, law what and they all embraced Islam. The ministers quickly ran to the king and they said, oh king, what you least expected has happened. The entire town is Muslim, that you wanted to get rid of the monk and the minister and the young boy, you've heard it's all over. The whole town has embraced Islam, you're in serious trouble. So that's when he went and became a maniac. Like, fill in the blanks. And what did he do? He entire he ordered the entire town to be

01:17:55--> 01:18:42

sealed and closed off. And he dug trenches. And he set up massive fires. And he set his army and his soldiers grabbed them one by one. Tell them if they reject them denounced the Dean leave them if they don't throw them in that fire and let them burn. And each of the 20,000 plus or minus would not denounce his deen and he was thrown in the fire. The narrations mentioned his soul was removed before his body touched the fire Allahu Akbar. And this comes in line with Hadith Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Murata feels the pain of death like a mosquito bite. They had died before they reach to the flame What did they lose? You know these people? Allah says about them in so

01:18:42--> 01:18:52

little blueish in the Lavina manhwa middle Saudi had left them Jana to take him in Tatiana now. Then he can focus on Cubby.

01:18:53--> 01:19:00

This is the greatest success. I ask a question. What is the greatest scene? What did they do? My brothers and sisters.

01:19:01--> 01:19:27

They have Eman less than two, three hours max. That's all they've been believers for a few hours. What's in front of me? What did they do? What did they achieve in life? What Salah did they pray? What fasting did they do or charity did they do? What did they do for Allah to see? They have reached the greed the success and Fosun kabhi comes once in the Quran and that's where it is. You know what the falsehood communities

01:19:28--> 01:19:59

it is the fact that you remain steadfast upon La ilaha illallah until your death. That's the greatest success. Anyone who dies upon La Ilaha illa Allah, no matter what his past is, that is indeed the greatest success Allahu Akbar, until finally, this is the last part of the Hadith. They came to a mother. And this mother was tested a lot more than everyone else. She had a newborn carried and the light

01:20:00--> 01:20:41

What do we do? We're gonna throw you in the fight denounced the dinner we threw, she tackled the little bit was confused. So Allah azza wa jal give her an aided her with a miracle Allahu Akbar. You know when Allah says in the molars real strong, that's a clear manifestation of it. That young boy newborn who usually doesn't talk spoke, and he's one of four newborns that would speak at the Norris Arsalan will tell us but this boy would say Smitty, or mirth in Necker Island, Huck, be patient or mother, for indeed you are upon the truth. How beautiful is this, that Allah azza wa jal sue this and comforts the believer in a time of intense calamity.

01:20:42--> 01:21:26

And so when he she heard this, they took her and her baby and threw them both in the fire law. But you see, this is BD. In Nicola Huck. This is advice we give one another. Brothers and Sisters in Islam, be patient, be patient upon the deen of Allah, Be patient upon the obligations of Allah. Why? Because it is the truth. Be patient upon the hijab, because it's the truth, the patient upon your prayers because it's the truth. Be patient upon Allah, Allah, Allah Allah because it's the truth isn't there's nothing more true than that. They submit the neck Allah and hacker upon patients, your upon the truth, and that's what allows the believers to enter the paradise. Finally my brothers and

01:21:26--> 01:21:44

sisters in Islam, I conclude with this point, just so that we can clear something here. In the Quran, Allah azza wa jal mentioned how he has cursed the people of dude, the king and those people that had committed this atrocity and this genocide of their own people. Allah azza wa jal, he says,

01:21:45--> 01:22:04

and you know, when something like this happens, what's the first thing people doubt about Allah? When a genocide happens, like the one that happened in this story, the first thing that people start doubting is about Allah, where is he? Where's Allah? Can't Allah see all this? Why doesn't Allah do anything? I tell you something, which is something unique.

01:22:06--> 01:22:19

Allah azza wa jal, he says in Surah tel barouche he says, What Allahu Allah colletion Shaheed Allah azza wa jal says, well, Humala may have I don't even want ministry He said,

01:22:20--> 01:22:23

Fire Lord Lima, you read, right?

01:22:24--> 01:22:31

He says, and Allah is upon everything, a witness, he's been a witness to everything all along.

01:22:32--> 01:22:33

This is the point.

01:22:35--> 01:22:38

Every single calamity that happens in your life,

01:22:40--> 01:22:46

in one way or another, doubt will creep into your mind concerning one particular name of Allah.

01:22:48--> 01:23:01

The stories of the Quran, the stories of the Quran, if you notice, if you notice, the name of Allah that is mentioned within the calamity is the name that people doubt the most about Allah.

01:23:02--> 01:23:14

And he see the story and barouche when he hear of it 20,000 Being genocided and killed with Allah in the same surah Allah who said Allah Allah cliche in Shaheed he saw it all. Don't you dare

01:23:15--> 01:23:35

doubt that Allah azza wa jal is a witness to all of this due to the doubt and every single calamity in the Quran. Read it good tonight and this is your homework, every calamity of a prophet, observe the name of Allah that is mentioned, you will find that there is the name of Allah that people will doubt the most when they face that same calamity.

01:23:37--> 01:24:12

Or you have Allah your Salah mm 18 years of sickness. What's the name that you will doubt of Allah the most that he's the most merciful? Yet he will say you are under hamara he mean, you do that as as a project for yourself and see how true it is how Allah so that it is inspirational story of ask Allah assertion that he guide us through this story. Well ask him subhanho wa Taala to accept from us. We ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive us and to grant us all acceptance Jay Sekulow head on for attentive listening in your patience. Allahu Allah SallAllahu Sallam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi COVID-19
