from where I left off, last week controller,

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

we're still in the pre

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

Islamic period. Specifically, we're before the proximate mechanisms. First, a couple of were a number of decades before he was born, I just thought it was, there's still a few things I need to cover before I can start talking about,

00:00:29--> 00:01:13

about his birth and his early years or the years before he became a Prophet, his thought was just to kind of give you as much context and context as as I possibly can, so that the CLI makes more sense to you. So you have a better ability, stronger ability to actually connect and relate to what's being explained. Or the less you understand that error. Unless you understand the the details of that error, the farther harder is it is for you to benefit from his life story on it. So it was just a fact. So when I go through these stories, and I talk about things that happened before he was born, I'm trying to give you an idea of what type of world was born into it, it's obvious and what

00:01:13--> 00:01:27

type of stories you heard growing up what's happening around him, so you can appreciate the level of change he brought to the world, because you got to appreciate how many changed the world. If you're comparing, if you're comparing him to the world we live in.

00:01:28--> 00:01:59

If you're if you're comparing what he said, Then now to how we live now is not as impressive, obviously, because a lot of what we see today are consequences and our results of the change he brought out of your software set up to the world. And that's again, that's an issue of history, we'd have to study that more history, just so you can see that a lot of what he taught yesterday was the things that he changed, made their way trickled through Yanni the ages and made it made its way across continents and actually affected the way the world functions today, it's just that

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

we're not very good at assigning credit to those who deserve it. Regardless, when you understand how the world was when he was born, which is all I really cared for, then you will appreciate how much he actually changed the region of the world. Because because it's much clearer that the change is much is much clearer as much and it's much more apparent and direct is not indirect and then take 1000 years or whatever we got changed to be apparent did actually happen within a couple of decades. So the story that I talked about last time, I told you the story somebody decided to see and the reason I told him story is because it happened before his birthday. So it was me to kind of give us

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

an idea of how scarse tropper faith and decayed was within the world. At that point. It's hard to come by someone who actually knew scripture properly and knew of the word of Allah subhanaw taala willing to go out and gene in a proper way and said, Man, it was a good example. The story I've been talking about today, Jason began last week

00:02:58--> 00:03:35

is the story of the Christians of Nigel Milan, are a sovereign nation Michelin. And this story happened maybe maybe 40 or 50 years before he was born on the East Coast. He grew up hearing this story. He grew up listening to this story being repeated to him and his generation. And it's a story that has a couple of really important points that they benefited from that generation benefited from the we can also benefit from. And then the more I'm recording the story, and focused on a completely different point of I focus on a completely different point for us to learn from. So I think he just made his story much more rich. And last time I'd arrived somewhere in the middle, just before we

00:03:35--> 00:04:02

went into the sauna, and I'll continue to shop. From there. Of course, it's the majority of the tissues on the joint is, as I said, as soon as we broach that basically the story that is recorded by advice working group. And to make it as simple as possible. The the Sassanid Empire or the force of the Persian Empire, they ruled the southern part of Arabia during that period, and the Hemi regain, or the him united

00:04:03--> 00:04:41

kingdom is the kingdom that ruled that part of the world. And there were small pockets of Christians and Christian believers in that area that were horribly persecuted within this story, that of course, he's going to have a lot of political aftermath that we'll talk about after the story is over. But that's going to give you just a bit of a background. So what basically what happened is that the king duel was that his goal was to make sure that everybody had the exact same belief he didn't he wasn't much of a fan of freedom of religion, and he wanted everyone to follow a certain belief and it was some form of, of paganism that he wanted people to follow. And he made sure that

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

he looked for the most talented youth to train to become priests within his church or to preach and teach whatever he wanted them to. And a small young man by a young guy by the name of Mullah Agnes was chosen and his parents very happy that he was chosen because that meant that his teachers are seeing something in him that made him

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

candidates actually carry to become an advisor of the kingdom or someone who works by the king, and oppressors all through history. All dictators need helpers, if those who stand by them, and I belong to them, it was being prepared for that. And it being taught all the all the things that need to be taught. Now I'm delighted to Thurman, however, had an issue. He was a critical thinker as a young kid, and he didn't like a lot of what he was being taught. And he decided that he didn't want to continue learning what they were teaching him.

00:05:27--> 00:06:02

And he started searching for the truth elsewhere. So every morning was sent, he was supposed to be going to one place to learn with the rest of the boys that were learning. And he would end up going to a different place until he found he stumbled upon a Christian church that was hidden somewhere in the woods. And the people there of course, were wealthiest me and they were more hidden. And they taught him the scripture of Isa instead of G. And the Lagna. Seven was a very special point. The story, of course, comes from the fact that he was a bit of a special person. And he and his level of Eman is all of closeness to Allah subhana, Allah gave him the ability to actually preach it, but

00:06:02--> 00:06:16

don't hate to the people of Nigeria, and we lived amongst and Allah gave him Come on, or what they called many miracles, that changes he was able to bring into the lives of those whom whom he taught and, and whom He pinched the face to.

00:06:17--> 00:06:34

He became so famous that the king heard of him. So the king sent someone to people to capture him, they brought him in. And he of course, you know, as being a young teen, he basically told on those who taught him and those people were brought. That's where I kind of left off the story last time.

00:06:35--> 00:07:04

Now, it's an interesting part of the story is that it's a person who was teaching and I'm loving this subject, because we haven't recorded that this man told his student is pupil you told him I'm not. I'm not someone who has the strength to endure any form of pressure. So please don't tell anyone about me. Even if some points are captured, please do not give out my name. I don't have the ability. I need to change your any difficulties. He is someone who had seen

00:07:05--> 00:07:26

oppression. And instead of standing his ground and speaking the saying the truth, he just decided to seclude himself. Right and his heart, he felt that he had made a mistake. A lot of people do that. And a moment of truth and difficulty. They decided to take a step back and not interfere. Later on. They live to regret it. This man.

00:07:28--> 00:07:35

He felt scared. He was scared of physical difficulty. He was scared of torture, basically. And he felt like he wasn't strong enough. So we saw we went into seclusion.

00:07:36--> 00:07:40

And he told his pupils, please, I'll teach you but don't tell me what about me. I'm not I'm not strong enough.

00:07:41--> 00:08:21

But I lost the pounds. I wanted to pay for this man. I wanted to offer him salvation. I wanted to give him a chance to prove himself. So I'm the luckiest Senator because it's the empty and he said, Yeah, this guy is teaching me this where he is. So they're going to bring him the problem. I said and tells us his story. But he tells the story, not by sitting like I'm doing it tell you the story. He told the story in a really, really dramatic and difficult way. He only told the story of this man. When hubbub what are the red nose? Early Sahaba, one of the early mucky Sahaba this man was a slave were tempted to sound with banana and a mud and all those early people and above was a who was

00:08:21--> 00:09:02

a blacksmith. He worked he worked with with heat and metals and hubbub one day when he was he was standing in his shop and he's and he's working. And they come by then some of them are shaky in a place they come by. And they talk to him and and of course it's during the period where Muslims are being oppressed within within Mecca. So they come and they start talking to him about why is he a Muslim? And what is this? So he gets a bit heated. So they pick them up and they lay him on the coal that he uses to melt down the middle of it. And he says and as combat says the only way the pool the pool was was finally cooled down was with the fact of my own back. They basically birches back

00:09:02--> 00:09:27

fully. And when they left him and he got up and he couldn't walk anymore, so he needed to crawl. This is what happened to combat. The Allah Allah, he comes to the Prophet, somebody said them in this in this figure in the States, he's crawling, he can't walk because they've just birches back and they're happy for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And about for a moment, he looks at the Bravo. And he says, Your suit Allah. You don't matter.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

Until when

00:09:31--> 00:09:49

he didn't, he didn't object. He just was wondering When will this end? Is there an end in the future? So the Lord is this how we're going to spend you spend the rest of our lives. You just aren't going to live for the rest of my life? Yes. Will Allah eat me? He just asked the question didn't object. He wasn't upset. He wasn't cursing out faith or cursing out the prophet or cursing out Allah.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

Allah. He just asked the question until one and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got extremely upset had already been audible fever. Gee, you can see his

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

I'm going to speak in this case, which was a rare thing, but it happened.

00:10:04--> 00:10:14

It happened, it was not very common that that would happen. But it would happen. Every once in a while you would know that you said something that that bothers you. And he was and he was bothered by what this man said.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

So he told the story of this priest,

00:10:19--> 00:10:23

he told the story, I'm not going to share the full story, you have to go back to it because we have younger people here, very brutal,

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

very brutal story of what they did to this man.

00:10:28--> 00:10:35

The actual punchline of the story is that the Prophet said about him. But it will be he can our candidate did this and this to him.

00:10:36--> 00:10:59

Let me tell you, the Allegan Genie, he didn't, it didn't move away from his feet, not even nothing at all. He didn't budge from his faith, not at all like he was a word. He could have said anything. Because once you're once you're being mistreated, you can say whatever you need to say, to get out, this man refused, he stood his ground and he was brutally murdered. You can go and see the details on the website of how they did their market share.

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

He was given a chance by Allah subhanaw taala, to prove himself and he did. And then the Prophet Allah would turn to humbug. And he will say, when I can Allah in the nostril abdomen deed, success and victory will come with a kidney component, the status you know, but your people have no patience. Your people have no perseverance. He just had his back birds.

00:11:19--> 00:11:27

He will just lay down on call, he can't walk anymore. And the Prophet is saying if you have no patience and perseverance, what are you talking about?

00:11:28--> 00:11:55

What would he what would he say about us? I don't know. I don't know what he would tell me. And when I complain, or I invented or something. If this man couldn't move anymore, by the way it kebab would never walk straight again. Sounds like he would make a full recovery, he would never walk fully straight ever again. You could never He would never be able to do it again. I'll be alone for the rest of his life. And the problem with me saying it will come, are you You have no patience. Look at this man. Look what happened to the man when he talked to a priest of Mossad

00:11:57--> 00:12:05

in a long story that I don't care to share the details, because we have questions about his authenticity. And it's not that important, the client wasn't interested in

00:12:06--> 00:12:39

actually recording it is that a blood myth family and the king would have a couple of incidents where they would talk back and forth, and the king would try. Now of course, for the king, he can't execute a child, it doesn't look very good in front of the public eye. In the public eye, you can't really execute a kid. So the king was trying to find ways to get rid of this kid maybe couldn't and just give him becoming more and more popular. And he was getting more and more famous. And it was causing an uproar in his in his kingdom and he was not happy. So he wanted to get rid of this kid. So I'm delighted to salmon who had developed a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala, most of us

00:12:39--> 00:12:52

came and dreamer would tell him, the only way you can get rid of me is for you to say Bismillah Hello Bill hora, they will say the name of Allah, the Lord of the hula, the lord of this young kid. And then if you let an arrow go, it will take me out.

00:12:53--> 00:12:58

So the king tried other ways that it didn't work out. And he finally did that one. And the kid died.

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

The Quran didn't record any of this, everything I told you to put in a record. So if you choose not to believe it, I am totally fine with that the client was not interested in any of these details. But until the story from this point forward, from the portent, I'm starting right now. That's what I'm interested in everything before you just whatever the history books told him to tell us. We're not 100% Sure. From that moment forward, the people of New Zealand decided that they wanted their religious freedoms, and they want the ability to believe in Allah subhanaw taala. And they were motivated, inspired by the courage of these two people by the priests and this young man. They were

00:13:33--> 00:13:45

so inspired, that he declared to feed and it happened. The trickle down was like a domino effect. One person to person 100 people, 1000 people, the numbers went up and up and up, and the king couldn't stand for it. So what did he do?

00:13:46--> 00:13:50

He had his he had his soldiers dig a trench

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

dug a trench, just like the one that had been for the actual battle itself. He was drenched. And they stuffed it with wood.

00:14:01--> 00:14:06

And then they lit fire to that wood. And the fire was so high you can see it from a mile away.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

And the and they kept on feeding that fire with wood.

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

Keeping it kindled, telling you the believers with whom they captured one by one that either they leave their Deen they leave dokey, they leave their freedom of faith, or they will be thrown into that fire.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

Not after the man executed but prior to

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

live was

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

one of the most horrific images you can never imagine.

00:14:35--> 00:15:00

May Allah subhanaw taala protect everyone you have to know we're not living in an era where this is the type of sacrifice that we're asked to offer. The sacrifice that we're asked to offer is much more simple. Its knowledge, its time it's emotion is commitment, things that are much easier for you to offer than then putting up with so with this being told that that's that's your faith doesn't believe what's awaiting you. So when

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

Read the sutra

00:15:04--> 00:15:42

was either chill Guruji will yomim elude Russia he didn't want to shoot Allah Subhana Allah takes you know this is a slurred by the sky, the cosmos, nothing grows with the constellations will always means something that's higher than that has another part that's higher on top of it. So bhootish means something high that it will always mean this cosmos have one layer above the other. And he is and he is opposing some I know Dinah the depth of the trench, you will dig the trench down and they will send up into my broods, as you can, the deeper you dig it, the higher they will go with somebody that is rude when you're minimum rude, and he will take an oath by either your milk gamma

00:15:42--> 00:16:09

the promise day, which is either your will pm or the day that the king promised that he would finally punish these people and burn them either way, they understood that the field is acceptable. And then he made an oath that we don't have another example in the Quran for there's a lot of wisdom in the Quran Enix takes an oath by the by the sky in the cosmos all the time. He takes an oath by oral gamma all the time, but then he said was shot and he didn't wear my shoes. And I swear by every witness, and I swear, but everything that was witnessed,

00:16:10--> 00:16:27

jacket is a witness, and mature are things that are witnessed just arbitrary, just an open an open phrase, an open ended concept. He's not talking about a specific witness. He's talking about every witness and everything that's ever been witnessed.

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

And then the answer to the oath, Westerner, he will Yomi Porsche he didn't wanna shoot patina of our because, dude, may the people of the trench be forever damned, may they be forever punished.

00:16:42--> 00:16:57

And then the thought that comes to mind is, well, who are the people of the trench? Obviously, he's not talking about the believers who were tossed in, because those people believe that Allah subhanaw taala, they underwent the most, you know, horrific sacrifice that we have record recorded in the Quran,

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

that he must be talking about the people who dug the trench and threw people at others in.

00:17:03--> 00:17:39

But then the rest of the sewer doesn't really support that. The rest of the verses, if that's what you think it means, don't support your claim. If you guys are just saying, I will have to admit they punish the people of the trench in your mind, you're thinking those are the ones who actually dug the trench and threw people in the rest of the of the sewer that will debunk that theory, will actually make it impossible for that to be the meaning to possible linguistically, it's impossible for this to be the meaning. So what is the meaning? So we continue is the O'Malley have perused these people, as they sat upon that trench? No corrode is what I'm doing right now. But actually,

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

interestingly, I can only be fired right now. If there's something better than I shouldn't be doing.

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

It, there's nothing better than I shouldn't be doing right now that this is called judo.

00:17:49--> 00:18:08

I am no shot, if I'm sitting down, I am only applied if there's something else that I shouldn't be doing instead, if I have failed to serve my purpose, or deserve the higher priority, and I sat here and did this instead, if that's the case, then you can call me find this if you go to the Quran, Lacan D in our studio,

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

welcome our Illumina Nisa lysterfield.

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

Mina

00:18:15--> 00:18:30

is always someone who sat me sat behind, who stayed back refused to do what they needed to do, or didn't serve their basic purpose or mixed up their priorities. One of the three everywhere in the pledge always seems like that it's never used.

00:18:31--> 00:18:47

Besides that, we're different than that. Unless you want to make this word here at the the exception to that very clear rule in the blood, because we have Judas you have sitting down elsewhere in room as they sat upon the trench, they sat behind, they sat back, apparently there was something else that we're supposed to do.

00:18:49--> 00:19:19

So what is it that he was supposed to do? So the I after it makes that even more more clear. If it says well whom I know you're gonna Bill move me, Nina tune. And they, the people that you just talked about a moment ago, say put you down, do the people in the trench we're home. I them if I knew one regarding what others were doing to the believers. So now that we have a couple of parties, we have those who were torturing the believers, we have the believers, and we have a third group.

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

There's a third group.

00:19:23--> 00:19:31

And the third group is the group that Allah subhanaw taala talked about in this book, he knows how to do it, in whom they have the hood.

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

Of course it is understood it can do fire.

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

So what's the idea that explains that is as well who am I that I'm if I'm moving? Meaning that you will indeed, they were regarding what the disbelievers or the oppressors were doing to the believers? Indeed, they were Should I have it all in blue? That's how good I am. So in blue are the words that I want you to pay attention to a certain blue shadow. There are witnesses, they witnessed it

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

What I mean, they wouldn't just mean they weren't

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

believers who were thrown in.

00:20:07--> 00:20:17

They didn't support what was happening. They didn't order the trench to be done. They didn't dig it themselves. If you ask them, Do you think this is a good thing? I don't think it's a good thing.

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

But they just watched. They just witnessed it.

00:20:23--> 00:20:31

They just witnessed it, they watched it, they watch others being thrown, no matter what you've done nothing. Nothing renders a punishment of sort.

00:20:32--> 00:20:56

Someone to be thrown into fire. The stories are brutal, I'm not going to share the details, details. They're very difficult to listen to men and women, children and elderly. Everyone throw into this fire alive for no real good reason. Oh, my that my I don't want to be me. And so who's and these people, us? How do you do that? Allah is just putting I mean, did you punish, they sat down and they witnessed this?

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

When they didn't do anything,

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

they didn't do anything they just watched.

00:21:03--> 00:21:08

You could have said very easily. I didn't, I didn't do it. I know we didn't do it.

00:21:10--> 00:21:22

You see what my fear for you will be is that you come you stepped up and talk to Allah subhana wa Tada. And you know, you see the fire, you get really scared and say, I didn't do anything. And he tells you that's exactly the problem.

00:21:24--> 00:21:50

That is precisely the problems. We didn't do anything. We didn't do anything. Why didn't you do anything? Did you not? Do you do not observe oppression? Do you not see persecution? Were you not around for it? Do you not see people being mistreated and treated unjustly as I did? But I didn't do anything I know. That's That's my point. Are you? Are you listening? Are you listening to what I'm saying? That's the problem. Why did you do anything? And of course, it'll take a few minutes all hits you, oh, oh.

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

Nice. We can close apparently,

00:21:54--> 00:22:00

you didn't reach the Lord at some point in your life, he didn't understand what he was talking about. Not doing anything is a choice as well.

00:22:01--> 00:22:33

Just sitting around and watching, that's a choice. You can choose to do that. It doesn't mean that you don't accept that in your I'm gonna give you example, you don't accept that in your own life. You walk into a room when you have two children older and younger, right? And there's in the bedroom was completely destroyed. Right? And it's the young kid who's making all the problems. So what you do if you turn to the older person who did not do anything, you're just sitting there quietly on his bed. And you said, you started yelling at this kid. And this kid looks at you and said, I didn't do anything. And he said, that's the problem. And you start punishing that that person specifically,

00:22:34--> 00:22:50

why did you do anything? What you didn't see your younger sibling, you're trashing the room, you couldn't have done anything and then got older. But every single person here has done that or had that done to the ones of these underlings, every person. None of us except it now you're not okay with it. As a parent, you are completely not okay with that.

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

If the sibling who could have made a difference, we're going to stop time didn't stop. Are you okay with it, you're gonna walk in, you're gonna punish them first. Obviously, the younger

00:23:02--> 00:23:34

problem maker can get punished, he already knows his fate, he'll stand there knowing that he is completely finished. But the other one who thought that I didn't do anything, I shouldn't be punished, and you're gonna punish them first. Because it's not okay to sit around and watch. You don't accept it in your own home on a simple scale for simple stuff. Why do you think Allah double accepted from us human piano? So the growth is very close to right. It's not. It's not okay. It's not accepted you own piano? And look at the words you who would look how many times when it comes in the sutra, he swears by every witness and everything that was ever witnessed. And he talks about

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

those who sat around and witnessed what happened to the believers. What am I in a moment home in

00:23:40--> 00:23:49

any and all of it. The only reason that these people were punished, when thrown in thrown into the fire is because they believe that Allah subhanaw taala, unfathomable and the one word, the phrase.

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

If you still don't believe me, like no, no, no, he's talking about the ones who are oppressed. Bye. Bye, fine. I'll

00:23:58--> 00:24:19

convince you with one more point. Look at the verse right afterwards, in the medina effect, and we'll move meaning in our movement, indeed, the ones who persecuted the believers, and there they are. They're addressed right there. They're addressed in their own verse, the ones who are persecuted are going to be addressed as a as a, as a different group. As a separate group, they're going to be called Alladhina effect. And

00:24:21--> 00:24:42

just so you think that you're not being known as things are off the hook. Obviously, someone who knows someone else into a fire for life is going to be punished. That kind of goes without being said, but there's a full verse to make sure that you can rest assure that will be punted, don't worry about it. What about the other ones? What about that gray area? What about the 85 to 90% of people who don't really do specific bad things, but don't really care enough to actually stop them either? What about them?

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

If you read, go read this too slowly. Because we may be going too quickly for you. You're not believing. Read this slowly? Who knows how it will have to be the people of the church be punished, may be punished eternally down. Why would they do they sat around and watched it

00:25:01--> 00:25:33

As a Latina *ing me neither one of those those who persecuted the believers male and female, but die it says two millennia to go, but then they didn't repent. You see even the person who actually committed the crime. Even the person who committed the crime was actually tossed someone alive into a fire is being given here within this is an opportunity to repent someone on YouTube who and these the ones are persecuted the believers male and female and then failed after that to repent from that sin. But oh my god will join them. I wonder Oh my god, well, it will be punished.

00:25:35--> 00:25:53

But they repented. I don't know how they would have done it. But had they repented. Allah subhanaw taala accepted them if that person has the opportunity to repent that you don't think that the witness has robbed opportunity to repent. Of course, of course, every person who was right now

00:25:55--> 00:26:31

being negative in their lives, they're a bit oblivious. They're not really doing much you don't have you don't really care to do much. You don't feel involved. You don't want to be involved. There's always the door to repentance is open, it's always open. If it's open for the actual person who persecuted and oppressed it's not gonna be open for you. In the eye after that gives us the fourth book in the Latina Wamena floody how to integrity inductee, Helen Hall referred to those who believed and were hurt that day and or they will have paradise and Jenna called the rivers running on driftwood that he could pose. And that is a great when

00:26:32--> 00:26:44

I'm not going to explain the whole story. But I do want to take you to the verse help attack a hadith. And the last part of this talks about the concept of Junoon. What's Junoon Genji is a soldier

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

while the soldier is the fourth group,

00:26:48--> 00:26:57

the group of people who because they were ordered by a higher authority, think it's okay to oppress someone else. Because they were just ordered

00:26:58--> 00:27:32

this sort of talking about specific points, because they were told that you know, what? can I how can I just soldiers the mood in the Noah's story when they killed? It? It wasn't one person who did it was a bunch of people who did it. They were told by the elders of the group, the elders of the mood to actually kill the the sheet Campbell could only deal with what about them? What about the soldiers who are given the command to harm someone else? What about that? There's an Owen psychological trial that was done. I don't remember the name of it. I should have looked it up before we started here today.

00:27:34--> 00:27:49

But it was in one trial where they what they did was they they would bring in volunteers. And they would sit them in a room and they were in front of them would have all these buttons that would have a certain electrical charge on these buttons. And somebody inside would be sitting on a chair and there was a

00:27:50--> 00:28:20

some sort of electrical cable that was connected to them. And if you gave them a small shock, it would hurt and then the shocks would go up. And of course the person is sitting there with the electrical cable is an actor, and there's nothing really attached to his body at all. It's all just just it was just a trial. This is before we made psychological times impossible to get done. But this was done unethically. Last time, we learned from him, he could just there's something there that's worth learning from a book was published for him. So based on it. So what happened was he would bring someone in cinema chair, and then the guy who's running the running the experiment stand

00:28:20--> 00:28:51

behind him and say, Okay, give them you know, one vote or whatever, give him a small amount. So to give him the guy who jump a little bit. And then they will ask this guy a series of questions, we'll make a mistake, he was young, he made a mistake, given the higher voltage to give a bit of a higher voltage guy would jump up more. And he kept on going until the point where the guy who's sitting there with a scream in pain, say I don't want to do this anymore. I want out of this experiment, take this off, I don't want it I do not want to participate very clearly would say like that. And the guy who was sitting there, the guy they brought from the street who doesn't know that this is

00:28:51--> 00:29:00

all an act is sitting there looking back saying maybe maybe we should stop doing it. Though we should think we should stop doing this. So the experimenter was like no, no, that is fine. Continue.

00:29:02--> 00:29:08

And give them the the higher voltage 90% of participants went to the end

00:29:09--> 00:29:26

90% of the people who participated in this went to the engineer highest voltage. And after each time when they were done, they will take this guy out, introduced him to the person who was being electrocuted and tell them there's all this inept. It's an experiment but got one question for you. Why did you do it?

00:29:27--> 00:29:41

Why did you keep on giving this guy more electricity? Why are we doing it? So he was saying, Well, you told me Yeah, I know. I told you. But why did you do it? While you You seem to know what you were doing? He was yeah, no, but this guy was screaming and pain begging you to stop.

00:29:42--> 00:29:48

Then you still did it. Yeah. But you told her no. I told you. I'm very aware of what I did. I'm asking you. Why did you do it?

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Is this recording by the way? You can actually watch these recording if you want. Most of them don't have an answer. Only 10% of people said no, I'm not doing this nor walked out. A very small percentage of people want hope.

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

I hope you're in 100% of humanity, I hope that 10% of people are Muslims. Because that's the only way you can actually distinguish yourself as a Muslim, that you would never do anything. You would never do anything to harm anyone, no matter who told you, it doesn't matter who told you.

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

The Prophet said, I'm taught that lesson, I'm gonna learn the story. Because the problem

00:30:20--> 00:30:27

if I told you, even if I commanded you to harm someone, he wouldn't do it, you would question me and they always questioned he was in the money.

00:30:29--> 00:30:38

But this is something that we know that human beings are some, you know, they will sometimes behave like soldiers to just do what they're told. They just do what they're told.

00:30:39--> 00:30:43

No one will carry your choices for your meal monkey, no one

00:30:44--> 00:31:21

listened to me very carefully. Nobody. If you've been told otherwise, I would like to correct that piece of information. Nobody will carry any of your choices, your mill Piaba nobody, not your parents, not your friends, not not authority, no one you will carry it alone will be standing, you'll stand in front of Allah alone, your answer for your actions alone, and I believe, and this is my imagination running away with me, I believe that I actually just make things happen that there's going to be a page Angel. Me This is a job. And he doesn't just stand there in the moment you say, well, that person said, Oh, that person did he's gonna slap you on the head immediately, and said,

00:31:22--> 00:31:45

look around. There's no one here but you? Why are you pointing along? This person, this person, that person do not see that you're standing and speaking to Allah alone? Why are you blaming others, I believe there's gonna be ever that one of them. And I'm just saying that's his job. It's his page on your standards, I remind you that stop blaming others, because as you can see, we didn't bring anyone with you, we brought you alone. And you're standing here and speaking to Allah subhanaw taala. Alone, you're gonna be held accountable alone.

00:31:46--> 00:32:22

So make sure whenever you make a choice you make, you're really you take time to think about really long and hard, because you're going to carry that choice for the rest of your life and to carry up low and fully, fully accountable for it. Which actually makes the sense of why we're alive does. It really explains what it means to be a Muslim. I can't carry your choices for you. You can't create metrics just for me, I have to take care of me up to here view. The beauty of it is that if I help you and you help me, we ended up actually benefiting each other. You okay? Are there is there it's like it's a bit rigged, or they're rigged in our favor. You can carry each other's choices. But if I

00:32:22--> 00:32:40

help you out, we both get injured. If you helped me out with something, there's actually a way there's a loophole in the system for all of us to get injured all the time to get reward all the time. It's just how he rigged this up. I know Danny wanted to put it in our favor, wanted to make sure that there was some way for everyone to benefit, but at the end, you will carry your choices low.

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

Do you

00:32:42--> 00:32:50

know what I mean? Here hear about the story of the other soldiers have fallen in the soldiers of the moon. They don't benefit almost Yeah, when they come in, they're punished.

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

My husband was taken to jail, during his known

00:32:56--> 00:33:13

by the man in the prison. He turns to this man and the person is he's watching him and he telling him, even if I love you, I have no I have no choice. I'm doing this because I was commanded. But I love you Imam, I have a question for you. Tell me am I one of the helpers of the oppressors?

00:33:14--> 00:33:50

To the male. Mussolini said don't worry. No, you're not one of the helpers of the oppressors. You are one of the oppressors. Nowhere you're not one of the helpers, you're out. If you're in a program you're talking about. Whatever you do, do you do because you believe it's the right thing? And you don't do it? I know, you have in your mind now, maybe 1010 Different examples that you want to say no, but you're wrong. No, but I'm right. Whatever examples you have are wrong. There's no way that at no point, are you ever able to throw the blame for what you did upon someone else to look, there is just, this is one of the Maxim's of Islam. He's one of the basic rules of being a Muslim, unless,

00:33:50--> 00:34:07

unless you lost your mind, meaning you're not fully your cognition is not fit full at that moment. You know, you didn't know what you did. Whatever you choose, whatever you do, consciously, you carry you. If someone who commands you to harm someone else, and they hold a gun to your head,

00:34:08--> 00:34:31

what's the worst that's gonna happen? Well, I'm gonna die, okay. Then that's what happens. You will harm someone else to save yourself. That's not how it works. That's not how it's done in the deen. Because we believe in Allah, we believe in the hereafter we believe in, in accountability. And we'll be I know, this is a heavy thing, because we won't, we won't cross that red line of human harm ever.

00:34:32--> 00:34:54

We can't even sit down and watch. It's not the sort of thing. We can't even sit down and witnesses. We can't witness and say we did not. We have no hand in this. We did nothing to cause any of this. We did not participate in any way we can't even do that. Forget about actually participating because you have no choice because you think you had no choice but everyone has a choice. What is thinking something is not okay, this story.

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

That's the element the Quran taught us by doing.

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

The Prophet

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

solar generation grew up with a different, a different aspect of it as well think grew up with the story of this brave group of people in the Jalon, who stood for freedom of religion and gave their lives to be free. So I didn't stop growing up hearing the story of bravery, this story of courage, the story of freedom. And it affected him Ali Asad was having his generation quite heavily. That's how you're supposed to be. You're when you believe in something, you stand by it till the end.

00:35:32--> 00:35:46

You don't run away, don't turn your back. And you do what needs to be done. The Prophet said, another thing you want to learn from this, not just him, but also the generation of work that faith without strength is a lost cause.

00:35:48--> 00:35:55

Faith without unity and strength, you see, is the outcome of of this story for the believers a good outcome?

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

Some may wrongfully

00:35:59--> 00:36:07

argue that they were sure that the Vatican is saying it. Yeah, but that wasn't a good outcome.

00:36:08--> 00:36:40

It's not of no one hopes for that outcome. No one's hoping that they they lose their life. And others lose their life in an oppressed state. No one's hoping for that. And if you're hoping for that, you're you've got this all wrong. That's not something to be celebrated. We don't celebrate those who passed away in a state of persecution or pressure. We don't celebrate them. We don't There is no reason it is completely unethical. And it's rude to celebrate that when someone dies in a state where they're being persecuted or oppressed. That's the moment that's the moment to mourn. That's the moment to revise or aligns with what you've done and where we stand. It will celebrate.

00:36:40--> 00:37:04

It's very hurtful to the families of those who lost their loved ones. It's very hurtful when they see others celebrating that Oh, when he's a Shaheed, you know, what he's doing what he is, but he he's not alive anymore. That's more important at this point. You don't celebrate that this is not something that was celebrated in the province. So I said, I'm learning that, yeah, we call it strength, without strength without unity, then faith will, will evolve.

00:37:05--> 00:37:24

That's the outcome is not a good outcome. So two lessons, the problem is, I mean, his generation picked up from this story, this story, imagine this had this happened. And imagine that a full generation of people being told the story as kids all the time, one of the most famous incidents ever, that have happened in Arabia, just before the Prophet, so I send them when he was born.

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

Whenever you can just remind yourself of these five groups.

00:37:35--> 00:37:57

These are the five groups that exist, then you're oppressed, you're not supposed to be trying to be amongst the oppressed, there are the oppressors. Definitely, you shouldn't be one of those. They're the supporters of the oppressors that you knew that we just talked about. They are the witnesses, which is why they thought it was revealed to begin with talking about them. And then there's the fight. Those who resist oppression.

00:37:58--> 00:38:06

If you think about it, and this is what I'm talking about the fifth group, not really. That difficult was left for your own conclusions to be made.

00:38:07--> 00:38:31

For your own conclusions to be made. That's the fifth group. That's the group we're supposed to be amongst that we're supposed to belong. Those resistor fuse oppression. And that's what the Prophet SAW Selim grew up with. It's really important to understand the small mentality small little things that his generation got to grow up. And that made a difference in his life. I was hearing the story of Masada marathon.

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

Someone was it big? Okay, so

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

a few things I'm going to touch on today.

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

There's a man called I'm gonna

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

I'm gonna be the height

00:38:47--> 00:39:08

was from a very famous tribe called Kusa was, is one of the famous tribes that come from Canada and I'll talk about Canada in a moment so you understand what that means. And who's out for a number of centuries ruled Mecca prior to operation actually gaining control who's gonna continue to live right beside Maga and participate during operations rule

00:39:09--> 00:39:48

during operations reign, but for a very long time ruled Mecca basically on their own it was a solo act and I want to know he was one of the leaders of Zara and I'm gonna go to hate was the first person to introduce idols and paganism in into Arabia. He is someone who traveled to known whose journey is the sheet data you will save you need to his journey is up to demand Susan Delta Yemen and we made it to Damascus and one of his journeys you saw what happened to Christianity at the time were the highs, small idols that they were worshipping, and they had these Muslim and he liked how they looked. And he liked the concept. He would ask them what are these four things you would tell

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

them? These are things these are these are small idols that we worship and we ask for rain and for good luck and good fortune and all that other stuff. And he thought that was an awesome idea. So we brought these back with him to Arabia.

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

introduced the idea to a race of people who were at the time very ignorant and very poor. And people picked it up really quickly. And we had you set up and not eat and wooden Swan and huben, and mana, and all these names are just never be tried out their own their own idol now, and they carved it out and look beautiful, and they want it and on top of the Congo, and this new era, a lot of things changed.

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

And the dynamic of the political scene within Arabia changed because of that he was the first one that talks about Hamilton. He talks about it, he's going to rock that boat even though I saw him in the villa, the person who introduced a slum and should an association with Allah subhanaw taala for the first time in the region.

00:40:42--> 00:41:00

Now, after just doing understand, like the backbone of when Muslim came in this may be a couple of centuries before the Prophet Sam was born. So it's not that not that long ago, for a long time, two or more hitting the Ishmaelites of the of Arabia, were descended from this man, even Ibrahim, most of them were walking for a very long time. It was all inflammable hate blood in him.

00:41:02--> 00:41:08

After the incident of the Christians of the John, after they were they were brutally treated like that.

00:41:09--> 00:41:37

The Byzantine Empire because the Byzantine Empire, the Roman Empire were Christians, they they asked their allies in the region to move in and try to overtake Yemen as an actor to avenge the people who were killed. Of course, they're using faith as the reason but it's all political. It's all gaining control over me, no one cared about Arabia enough to actually come in and colonize it. They just wanted to gain strength or gain

00:41:39--> 00:42:08

some strategic points for it for themselves. So just getting control and really not actually ruling the area because there's really nothing there. There were no resources. No, do you know what was actually brewing under under the sand of only a couple of meters, but they didn't know that there was anything there that was worth actually colonizing the area and taking these ones again control. So the Byzantine Empire asked the kingdom of Aksum, which is what today is known as Ethiopia. And they were Christians. They had been Christians for a very long time. So they asked them to go to Yemen and just

00:42:09--> 00:42:16

to fight the Himalayan kingdom, which were the allies of the Persian Empire. You know, this may sound a bit confusing, but it's important to understand what happened.

00:42:17--> 00:42:24

So the enemy right Empire was your Arabs, but they were allies with the Persians had the kingdom of Aksum. The Ethiopians

00:42:26--> 00:42:29

start a war with them. So here, Philippines, they come through that small

00:42:32--> 00:42:55

that small closing at the end of the Red Sea, and they cross it, and award goes on for a couple of decades, which leaves to them the kingdom of Aksum, taking over Yemen, and taking over what the Hemi right kingdom ruled for a long time. And just happens to be that the guy who ruled the kingdom of Aksum just before the Senate was born, goes by the name of Avila

00:42:56--> 00:43:01

that rings a bell. So the man who ruled the kingdom of Axiom at that point was a man called Ah,

00:43:02--> 00:43:37

he, of course, use religion as a cover for a political game. And he wanted to rule Arabia and vote, he thought the best we could do it is to convert the Arabs to Christianity. So how he's going to do that he built this very, very large church in Sunday. Today is called Sunrise. It's actually one of the one of the capital of Yemen. So he built this this great, this church, and he started sending letters to all the Arabic trying all the other tribes to come and do pilgrimage to some. And he promised them well, they promised them prosperity, he promised them gifts.

00:43:39--> 00:44:09

But there's way too stubborn to do anything like that. They had been performing pilgrimage to Cabo for a very long time. And those who weren't religious, weren't gonna start suddenly becoming religious. So it was gonna make a difference. So the first year or second year, he would send out these letters, ask people to come to the church have fallen out, and very few people will show up. There's actually a story in the history books. I don't know if it's true or not, but it's there. You can look it up that that an errant man was, was given this letter. So he got so offended that he went and took a dump right in the middle of the church. We don't know if he actually happened or

00:44:09--> 00:44:40

not. But that's basically what the story says. Regardless, I was getting was Lulu was getting very impatient. And he was getting upset, and things weren't working out. He wasn't able, he wasn't able to convert this Arabia to Christianity and to gain control. So to his, in his mind, he's like, the best, easiest way to do it is to prove to them that there's other places that they seem to want to do pilgrimage to and had to do is not is not a real place. I will go I'll just bring it down. I'll just I'll just tear it down. They'll see that it's worthless, and they'll come to my church.

00:44:41--> 00:44:49

You seems very simple, right? And of course, the story that we all know, eventually he would, he would come by and try to bring down the car.

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

If you can move to four suddenly stopped working.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Just not keep on going to come back to it.

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

So

00:45:01--> 00:45:04

I'll start the story today. We'll continue with the show. Oh, have you been able to?

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

So I prepared an army. And you want to be more of a parade than an army.

00:45:13--> 00:45:39

There have didn't have an army. Meaning if you're going to come in and beat Arabia, there is no army, you will just have to take it out and try it on your tribe. And they will, there is no unity. And there's really no, there's no organization for them. So it's not that hard. A couple of 1000 people who are well trained, and you can probably take up the whole region, not not a big deal, but up to 100. Wanted, you want to just show off of it. So he brought an elephant into the into his army, their arms and not seen elephants. How many elephants live in the desert?

00:45:40--> 00:46:01

Right? Oh, maybe no, it was changed. But back then. There weren't many elephants living in the desert. So he start he sent, he sent an army that was very, very large army, and of course, elephants. And the Arabs were hearing it and the rumors were spreading really quickly. And did you hear that other eyes sending an army we don't know where he's going. But it has an elephant and it's.

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

So some of the air come by just to see the elephant.

00:46:06--> 00:46:21

And, of course, it's an Army soldier thinking that has resistance, and they're going to fight you're you're welcome to go wherever you want to go and do whatever you want to do. We're just here to see the elephant. In the game. This guy is coming and saying I'm going to invade the region. Go ahead, enjoy you. Can we just see the elephant.

00:46:22--> 00:46:31

So he would come and look at the elephants. And he continued to George temeka. He was expecting at some point that an army was going to form somewhere to defend the Kaaba.

00:46:33--> 00:46:34

But nothing ever did.

00:46:35--> 00:46:59

It arrive basically right in front of Mecca with this elephant. His point was to make a big deal, make a big fuss. So they started coming to something and he can build his control and get you to control the region. See, Agra had a lot of political ambition. He was hoping to break loose from the Roman Empire and to make his own empire and rule the peninsula. So we got up there was Game of Thrones, the game for him.

00:47:00--> 00:47:06

And then one story that we'll talk about, no, I guess, this time.

00:47:08--> 00:47:08

I've been

00:47:09--> 00:47:10

given Hashem

00:47:11--> 00:47:11

I've been

00:47:12--> 00:47:19

given Hashem is the prophets of Allah, Allah. He was like to send them his grandfather's, as you will learn a few things.

00:47:21--> 00:47:24

During his life was saved Mecca, was the undisputed

00:47:26--> 00:47:33

ruler of this man was the most respected individual and all of Makkah wasn't a wealthy man didn't have much money, but everybody respected him.

00:47:34--> 00:47:53

He didn't need to speak more than wants to get things done. I thought it was a man who of course comes from the Lord. No, no, no one lineage going back to Abraham and his family. And he knows what the competition is. He knows how ancient the Kaaba is. He knows what Allah subhanaw taala will do for the Kaaba. He wasn't scared to the goblin.

00:47:54--> 00:48:31

I think it would come and speak to Abraham. Because Abraham was waiting for at least someone, some representative of the city to come and speak with him because no one was coming. Some people will come in the story goes that Elena when he was sitting, he saw him coming from afar. And Abu Dhabi was a tall man. He was a strong man he was he had Heba, you when you see him, you would you would have this, this generated, just genuine expected respect for him. The moment you saw him, he would respect as individuals the way he looked and the way he would carry himself the way he presented himself who was a man who demanded respect. So when I saw him coming from afar, he felt he felt that

00:48:31--> 00:48:53

he needed to he got off his throne. And he sat on the ground on the chair waiting for him to come in so we could meet him face to face on his level. He didn't want to be standing up and I'm looking at do you think it was proper to look to him as someone who deserves respect? So we'd meet him, and he speaks to him? And he's telling him I'm here to destroy the Kaaba. So I'm we're putting smiles

00:48:54--> 00:49:21

and a grin on his face. Oh, so you're here. Join the club, are you? Well, good for you. I'm not here to ask you to not destroy the club. So you may you may have misunderstood why I came here, because I'm not here to say, well, you know, I'll consider now bringing it down and maybe you guys come to me. He's like, Oh, you think I'm here for the copper? No, no, I'm not someone who predicted I'm gonna find out what would have been. I am the Lord of the of the camels. And your army stole my camels on the way here.

00:49:22--> 00:49:57

I'm asking for my for my capitals. I don't know what's gonna happen to you. But I want you to cut my camels to be there when it happens. If it's okay, can I take my cat was out there for longer come in at he told him. I respected you when you came in initially, and they were talking to me about camels and I'm telling you, I'm here to destroy your kava, you're asking me for a couple of as some livestock and continues to smile and if it's okay, just please give me about my cameras. So he's like Fine, take your camels to a goat and he takes his camels and he walks away. And he goes into the mountains, the same place he had ordered all the people of Mecca to leave to go sit in the

00:49:57--> 00:49:58

mountains wait in the mountains.

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

And then sort of your fate happens.

00:50:04--> 00:50:07

Right? I love him tell him pay for

00:50:09--> 00:50:10

bills have been

00:50:13--> 00:50:17

paid to tell me what else

00:50:19--> 00:50:23

he told me hidden between Java, C, G and gospel.

00:50:24--> 00:50:27

Here's a story that we all memorize maybe four or five at least I

00:50:28--> 00:50:44

understood it. Yeah, you read it, it's easy. Sometimes we'll use it during repairs, if you're reading it, it's quick and doesn't take much time. But the actual message of the sutra is extremely profound. And I hope I can I can relate to that. It's really important to start with the students talking about

00:50:46--> 00:51:13

you see, the people have got to witness this. You're standing on the mountains, and you got to see a storm of birds, type of birds above the what does it mean? I really don't know. No one really knows you can go into books at the sea. And they'll give you all the different explanations and and translations. And that's all fine. But really, you really don't know exactly what the word means. So apparently is something that was foreign to whatever was being observed at the time that people were observing it. It was foreign to them. Birds have not seen before.

00:51:14--> 00:51:44

Now, how many of you have seen birds or a swarm of birds and thought to yourself, oh my god, death and destruction? And when was the last time you saw birds? And then you thought oh my god, I should take cover and protect my family because we're all gonna die. You see birds stick on the phone. You take a sample. It's easy virgin call somebody you have no idea how beautiful this is. No one sees birds and thinks of anything that has to do with harm whatsoever. Correct. You agree with that? You don't see birds and think of deaths. Not gonna happen? I'm pretty sure the army of

00:51:45--> 00:51:51

if they had phones at that time, they'll be taking pictures, but they didn't. It's just so much. Beautiful. Look at all these birds.

00:51:53--> 00:51:55

Within a few hours, you wanted

00:51:56--> 00:52:03

the details of how that happened? I don't know. You can read the surah we don't know exactly how it happened. But they guide everybody. No one was done.

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

The only standing

00:52:07--> 00:52:09

the only living thing was

00:52:10--> 00:52:17

was the only thing left and the elephant died years later. Everyone else on that date? night everyone. If you've watched this,

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

it's not one person is not true people 1000s of people in rates at this this is incidents 1000s of people because everyone was on the mountains watching the salt with your own eyes. So you saw a swarm of birds come by this group. And within a day everyone was gone.

00:52:33--> 00:52:42

The cat Ebrill has come died within 24 hours of these birds swarming. What exactly happened? I don't know. They bring them some disease. I don't know what happened. But they all died.

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

If you listen to the Surah, what are the sources tell the Prophet?

00:52:48--> 00:53:25

Tell her Do you not see nobody the prophet of social MC? Was he alive at the time? No. He was born that year. Basically, within a few months about incidents he was born and raised slogged to assemble. So of course, he is his birthday. His birthday was a known thing. The year he was born is a very known year, there's not just any year is the year of the elephant is there but that happens. And he grew up knowing that he was born during the year of the elephants. So this story never left him. This story. Never Never. He couldn't run away from the story. Sometimes you've heard how many of you have heard the same story from your father like 50 times. And you almost know when he's going

00:53:25--> 00:53:36

to tell the story. You can almost predict it. Yes. Yes. I think maybe if you if you continue to not go with this point, in a few minutes, my dad will remember that story. If you want my mother I can. I can. I can totally tell it for you at this point.

00:53:38--> 00:53:45

sharing the story that stuck with you the rest of your life, the story I'm going to feed was totally stuck to the Prophet. He was born that year.

00:53:47--> 00:53:49

Tool. Here's what happened. Here's what happened. Here's what happened.

00:53:51--> 00:54:20

Of course, this led later on for the kingdom of Aksum to lose control over Yemen and go back to Ethiopia all together, and the heavy rain kingdom to take over again. But that's the aftermath of the politics. But what the students teaching is something different. I let me tell my cave, the fall of who can beat us Hi, Ben feed. Did you not see, you know, witness? Of course, we didn't see it with your eyes. But 1000 people in your country did so as the same thing. You know, what happened? Do you see how he did it? How he did it paid for how he didn't?

00:54:21--> 00:54:32

Did he not take all their plotting and send it and make it useless and worthless? Qaeda hunk of money that they did was rendered useless? Did he not do that? subtidal Giada. Yeah, he did.

00:54:34--> 00:54:38

How many of you start the conversation by saying Did you not see this?

00:54:41--> 00:54:43

I mean, if I'm gonna come and talk to you after this Well,

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

chances are I'm not gonna start the conversation like that. Usually when I'm telling you, are you telling me did you not observe this that somewhere in mid conversation? Something else has been said a few minutes ago. We must have been conversing prior to this is impossible that when I start speaking to you

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

I started speaking to you, like I understand what drives linguistically. This is the beginning of a sewer. It's not the middle of a sewer. Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, did you not see what the boat ha?

00:55:10--> 00:55:35

Why are you upset? Why are you using the negative tone? Did you receive? I never said I didn't see why No, something else was being said, there is something that's deleted and missing. Now that the Prophet Clendon teach us no, there's a part that you're supposed to just figure out on your own. There's a part of the student that comes before the first verse they're supposed to be able to imagine. Let me give you a scenario. Let me give you a scenario. You're standing there.

00:55:36--> 00:55:44

You're seeing all the destruction happening in front of you. You see oppression, you see paintings, you see people who are miserable, you see people who are hungry,

00:55:46--> 00:55:47

people are sick.

00:55:48--> 00:55:58

You seeing all that and it's hurting you on the inside, whatever amount of conscious we still have left inside is hurting as you watch it. And then we asked ourselves the question,

00:55:59--> 00:56:02

why does it allow us to change all that?

00:56:03--> 00:56:20

Right? It's the first question that comes inside, if you're a good Muslim, and most people in general are Muslims, we can throw that question away. We don't think about it. And we're told to do that by the public. So I said that, right. But it comes to mind, it's a part of the neffs that has to always go out in their Shavon loves it, he's a really nice way to kind of ruin whatever faith you have.

00:56:21--> 00:56:55

And it can happen for anything, for anything at all. It doesn't have to be something as horrible as I told you. You didn't get up one day, and you're just cranky and tired and upset. And there's a traffic jam. And you're like, what, why? Why? Why did I do all the days of the week? Why now? I'm tired. I didn't sleep all night. And you're thinking but if he wanted to, he could have just made this open for me some hydrogenic. But even that happens inside happens a lot. Don't like don't ask like I know only one who thinks these things. Everyone here thinks Do you think that happens is a good Muslim, you go through them quickly. And you good Muslims, you know, that's not Jalaja Roma.

00:56:57--> 00:57:06

Allah Hamdulillah, you're saying the words that you know are truthful, and you've gotten rid of these horrible ideas. But they come, they're there. And they're a part of who we are, that have strung them up

00:57:07--> 00:57:44

to this feel they're answering it. That's where it starts mid conversation. This is not gonna say by the way, when you ask that question, here's your answer. No, this is gonna just begins with conversation. You're asking, Why do I do this? And why didn't the Lord do that? Why did you change this? Why don't you stop that too? Why don't you fix this? And why not? Why didn't that happen? For me? Why did that happen to him? And why that happened to her? Why what? Why did you not see what ALLAH SubhanA did to the people of development? Do you not see? Did you not see how we completely took their paid their plotting and made it completely rendered useless? And what did you use for?

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

Birds?

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

Birds?

00:57:49--> 00:57:58

Can you birds, nice or friendly or feathered covered? Nice friends. That was when chirp and make our big our mornings, lovely.

00:57:59--> 00:58:04

All the colors and all the beauty with birds. He destroyed an army with birds.

00:58:06--> 00:58:33

You're questioning whether he could do something or he couldn't do something? You're questioning him. So you're asking why didn't do this? I destroyed an army with birds, everyone's sides. I can do whatever I want. Whenever I want. I take care of my kingdom. I do it however, I need to do it and you are not in any position to question me and you're not in any position to offer me advice. Allah subhanaw taala has been running the universe for billions of years never needed my advice never needed. Yours doesn't need it now.

00:58:34--> 00:58:39

Delusion is not in need of anyone's help, or suggestions

00:58:41--> 00:58:51

he can take care of he's been taking care of him for a long time. We'll continue to Subhanallah Donna, you're questioning why that didn't happen. No. Well, you shouldn't do. Just focus on your rule.

00:58:52--> 00:59:18

Focus on doing your parts. Once your parts. Where do you fall in all this? What's your piece of the puzzle? Where do you fit? What can you contribute? Go ahead. You're worrying Why would you do this? No, no, no, I'm telling you, you're not see. Did you not see what I did to the people or the people that should end it? So I know that I can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants that as quick as that. It's as easy as taking out an RV. That few birds

00:59:19--> 00:59:22

very simple costume. Nothing's of handling.

00:59:24--> 00:59:30

The hand of God intervened. A very simple couple of birds chirp on your way there. Navy army one.

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

So instead of wondering, and questioning and turning towards him with an objection and asking why that happened, what turn to yourself, where was I? What could I have done? How could I have changed this? What could I have done better? Where is my role? What is my role? Focus on focusing internally, not upwards. This dude is the only player when you teach this stuff to your kids. You teach this concept with it. That's all you're teaching them. He is capable of all

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

also Python is simple, it's dead simple for him, dead simple.

01:00:04--> 01:00:40

You see, tell the story. This is what's happened. Rather, the focus should be on what we're supposed to do. Where we fall into all this, and what's our role? It was our job. What would we what should we be doing? Understanding that constitutes very important is a small school with one message, it starts mid conversation to answer the question that we all have it once in a while, where we question him, don't question him. He can make He can do anything he wants. Question. You see what, here's a piece of information that I'll share with you. The next time an army marches towards the Kaaba, there are no term I'm gonna be next time.

01:00:41--> 01:01:10

Next time, they will completely destroy it. You'll bring it down rock by rock, there's no there's no need. Again, this would be the last time the last time Allah subhanho wa Taala intervened historically, to change history a very important piece of information I just shared with you right now, this will be the last time that Allah subhanaw taala without the effort of man, without the effort of Mal would intervene to change history. You see also Musa without intervention

01:01:11--> 01:01:12

will just stood there.

01:01:13--> 01:01:20

Here's the ocean. And there's just nothing no one's armed. There's not one sword in this group of people.

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

And then he hits the hits the ocean. You unexpected and unexplainable happens. It changed history. They did not change history change history. Musa would live on its own, but he is strong enough.

01:01:37--> 01:01:39

Examples of that are many.

01:01:40--> 01:02:11

But after a theme that says that's the last time you don't need it anymore. You know he's capable, he doesn't have to talk to you anymore, you know that from now on you interview. That's why the next time the Muslims in Listen, the problem was that they would fall into the hole would break his tooth would hurt his face and hunger with dynamos I would die down below and then they all die. And they would lose the battle of God and go home. The next time the next time intervention would be needed. That's what was going to happen. And when they asked throws them in Africa because they thought for a moment that the melodica who came during the Navy, maybe they were a miracle just like the just

01:02:11--> 01:02:11

like

01:02:12--> 01:02:28

just like the birds of the people of the elephant and Allah was a well manager, I Don't wallow in love with the whole concept of like, it was just good news for you to raise your morale. Woman nostril LAMINAM de la however, victory only comes with the will of Allah subhanaw taala when he sees you doing your job,

01:02:30--> 01:02:34

when he sees you during your job, you're not going to be successful just because you're Muslim.

01:02:35--> 01:02:39

That's not a good enough reason. I know we would like to believe it. But it's just untrue.

01:02:41--> 01:02:56

You want to be successful, you have to take the route of success. You have to commit yourself to access to success fully, all of us all the time. And then Allah subhanaw taala granted, it's not going to be granted to us just because we're Muslim, or just because this or just because

01:02:57--> 01:02:58

that's the message basically,

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

of sort of theme.

01:03:02--> 01:03:06

Starts mid conversation and answers a question that quite often comes to mind.

01:03:07--> 01:03:47

It comes whether you like it or not, the higher you grow your iman, the less you ask that question. The higher Eman goes, the less that question comes to heart. The more you accept everything happening around you as tests and misfortunes that will give you an opportunities for you to prove yourself as someone who will be perseverance, but someone who will stand by the way of Allah subhanaw taala continue their life like that. That's all it means to you at that point. That's all it turns into at the end. But you have to understand this story. The Robin Hood grew up with those two stories, the stories of the dudes and the story of infeed echoing in his mind all the time,

01:03:47--> 01:04:12

hearing all the details that I don't even know to share with you. And wouldn't be that wouldn't matter that much to share with you. But he got to grow up listening to the stories of how of how your how Allah Subhan is capable of all and how you need to stand by your freedom to believe in that built up in his heart. So when he was finally given the opportunity to do that he stood his ground. And so did the people with them, sort of the people with

01:04:14--> 01:04:53

ran out of time. Next time what I'm going to do, I'm going to break down for you a little bit of the trivial atmosphere was in Mecca, explained to you what inspiration inspiration was for me. Who are the people what are the tribes in this in Mecca? What are the alliances that exist in Mecca? Once you understand that, you will not be able to ask you Okay, should you think this person will be an early believer or a late believer and you'll be right almost 90% of the time, just based on the alliances just based on the political atmosphere, the trivial atmosphere of what was a trivial scene within Mecca. We'll talk a little bit about the product lineage. We'll talk a little bit about

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

himself and who he was and what he did. And we'll talk about the good attributes of the Arabs. I know that for the last few

01:05:00--> 01:05:27

For hung up all I've said all I've done is trashed them. Because there was a lot of bad things to talk about, but don't want to see Allah subhanaw taala chose them to be the people who would carry the last message for a few reasons. There were a few good things going for them a few things that made the progress otherwise and in the great man he was made the Sahaba the big people they were and these things were losing and we need to bring back again, we'll talk about that in sha Allah a bit more next week, next week. So

01:05:28--> 01:05:30

just talking about a week or so

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

ago, someone can make enough
