Jolliffe Allah subhanaw taala grants you the ability to do this, talk about the rock valleys,
even too small, you'll find that when you already speak about these moments when it all began, it's just very,
very deep and very beautiful. So we had arrived at the end of his preparations.
I've talked about everything that's happened in his life, before he became prophets, before his prophecy before that, that moment that we'll talk about today. And I went through all the different life experiences that he went through, and what he gained from these things, and he talked about all these points in some level of depth in the last number of weeks.
Today, I come to the final preparations, the last few things that happened, and they are of a certain level of importance, the last few things that took place prior to him becoming.
So the first thing that I'll cover today
is something called them Sena.
Ev ohada, Allegiant site was set up, it is a known known phrase, you'll find in the books of Hadith, I
would use this phrase quite often helped you that you don't use but that means it will became beloved to him to have a certain level of solitude. He wants you to be alone, while we're talking. Now. He's 3738 years old. Right? What if what How old was he when he became profits?
Right, he was 40, he was 40 years old. So just a year and a half or two years before he became levels
before the prophecy began. And before this whole story that he was initiated, he started to like to spend time alone out, he just thought he was just take some time for himself. And the best thing he could up could come up with was he would go up to the mountains. And he would look for places where you could sit and contemplate and think.
And he would do this for around two, two years.
The handle to delivery and layer three, the way you would go when he was spending time and the number of days in a row, sometimes up to a week.
It was it always has always amazed me by the way that Khadija was okay with this. I don't understand how she was okay with this, try doing this now. Speak to your wife and tell her I want to go and solo doing a couple of weeks at a time is not going to go well at all. And I don't blame her because you're probably lying. And you probably want to do something else. Somebody just covering up
was saying I want to go and I want to contemplate because she was so involved and engaged in his line of thought he his thought was, he respected him as a person, not just as a husband, she saw the type of man he was and the need, he had the psychological and personal need that he had to be alone and to think she supported him. Not only did she support him, she would take food up to him. And let's become to actually talking about the bar, you will see that it's an hour to 45 minute walk. It's a very difficult walk I took me to do the walk when I was younger, and I lived in Saudi Arabia. And I remember getting up here I was in sixth grade seven or so I was I was pooped. I was very
tired. And I was young, it's very hard to get up to where he would go.
He would go to a place where he was that he was introduced to by someone before him. And that goes at them. And I'm one of them. And this was a man who was also a little kid, he was nice. He was one of the few people who lived in Arabia who actually believed in law, EDA in the law, you'll see there's a couple of them. So he had gotten in touch with all the people who had this background, and this person who did a lot of
a lot of contemplation in the same areas that he would go do the same it is now
in a good point that I want to take and talk about if you do mind going forward and you go forward.
Yes, yes. So we're gonna talk about this for a moment. Why would he go in? In what solitude? Are we supposed to want to be alone as Muslims? Is this something that you're required to do? Is that something that you're supposed to practice as a Muslim? Not really, that was something that I didn't do after he, after he died, did not become something that every so one of your tattoo you could do, but a certain amount of time,
a certain amount of time that you would take out of your life, to contemplate, to think to reflect, to go into a mode of deep thoughts about life and about where you are and who you are is something that is extremely positive for you in your life. We don't do it enough anymore. The concept of de facto if you go take the Quran and you go through the Quran, how many times he says
in the Vida and you can follow me into a community there are Signs for those who can't do what you think in Nevada.
Illegal in Alabama for those who have the intellect interviewed Erica Julian
to her to those who have the ability to think you find the Quran talking about this time and time again.
Contemplation deep thought it difficult. I have a couple of quotes for you up here and I'm struck with the Hadith when I wish I was asked a you shut me off soon in Landy Can I Jeeva what's the most interesting thing that you knew about the profit center that you can share with us? Because that's where you share any healing you're gonna enjoy but what about who wasn't interesting what I can manage Elena Elena, I'll tell you what I made that happen once Okay, you'll suddenly financial realities you breach if you came to him during the night they didn't happen very often in the process and it was praying God Bahama meaning he was kind of out of it for a few moments as you've
been brought into the verses but then we'll walk with us of Allah are using them for Salah kabaka
kabaka masala all night long out of out of the ordinary course money is taught to us to them he would usually pray for a while once leave for a while you know sometimes it would be a high level of issue or sometimes a bit less but this night he just kept on praying and kept on crying and kept on praying and kept on praying and crying all night long. until right before the photo where I was awake she couldn't sleep seeing this she wasn't sure what had happened but those yellow suit Allah He Malbec what has happened but yeah Nima you kick Why are you crying? For them Euro didn't answer to Madonna who Bilal Yanni Yatra Callie Hill for your villa was waking up perpetual, for Karla

There's no reason for you to cry, but okay find empathy. How do you how do I not cry? What is that? Hola, Jorge, yeah Leila, yachting way you know Lehmann Kureha, Willem Yetta, the Baja and tonight Allah subhanaw taala has has revealed to me verses that I tell you way in meaning there is a severe I
warn you of severe punishment if you do not take the time to contemplate and reflect upon these verses. Because it will matter where these words die who's listening, but tell us of Allah Allah you only use them.

in total, but the these two are very clear indeed in the creation of the cosmos and the earth, and the differences that happened between day and night to find upon the planets. There are Signs for those who contemplates those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala whether there are standing sitting or lying down mean regardless of what situation they're in, and they're like, what status they're in. And they continue to contemplate in the creation of everything around them. Coming to the conclusion that of bene ma Dr. Heather Ballina, oh my lord you did not create this in vain. So behind that you're exhausted from doing anything in vain.
protect us from the from the punishment of the fire.
Where, you know, Lehman Cara Aha, well, I'm here to the Baja
he warns on a sort of simple punishment for those who read this intent and don't take the time to think of deep thoughts, something that we don't do very often anymore. So there's a few coats up there
Rui and Hayden Mills Sahaba and no call no rule Iman a difficult more than once the hobby was generated from them that they said the delights the latest email of faith is contemplation is difficult ruya amid dada
dada is one of those I have yet she was asked my other more EBA that he got there, what was the best thing that I did in terms of his worship pathology, that he hit difficult the thing that he did the best in the most was was contemplation.
And he was was reflection upon his own life. So if you only thought it was safe to * kulula lettin Hiram minty yummy center for you to spend any for one night just thinking contemplating upon your life is better than praying for a whole year and Hashem the boss the different ones step further fossa Kurosaki in the Army Center, if you spend just an hour contemplating about what actually your life is about and where you are and who you are, and what you've done and where you're going and what this all is about. And it's better than praying mindlessly for a whole year.
We can do it very eat well as people, all the big questions, just just tuck them aside under the rug, and just keep on moving forward. Just keep on going on with life. You pray, you don't have to think exactly about what you're praying you fast. You don't think exactly what you're fasting and give that guy you don't take time to contemplate that. You just go through life go through life, you go through life, and then you're 30 and you're 40 and you're 50 and
you're 60 and you still haven't actually sat down and thought about your own life in depth. I just thought to sit on couldn't do it anymore. He was 38 years old and he couldn't do it anymore.
He was frustrated. He looked around him everything around him was corruption.
around him was was financial corruption, social corruption, religious corruption, ethical corruption, nothing was working. Does that sound familiar to any of us? Nothing was working around him Alia sockless and everything was failing. He couldn't, he could no longer just sit there because continue to go through his life normally, he asked his wife, I need some time. I have to figure this out. I don't know where I stand in all of this. What is my role? Who am I? What am I doing here?
What's the next step? Is this okay? Do we continue like this? Do we allow the next generation to go through exactly what we're going through today is the way that people are functioning today. Okay. Should I be fine with everything that's happening around me? Should I just accept and keep on moving? Or should I stop persnickety? This is not right.
You don't have the answers, and neither do I. And to be honest, at that moment, neither did he Allah salatu salam he didn't have the mass either. But he needed time to think and he took the time to contemplate and he would go to that mountain and think are they used Salatu was Salam and Khadija would, would join him while the Allahu Taala on her.
You need time in your life for deep thoughts. You really do.
Take time, every day, take an hour. That's too much. Every week, take an hour, too much every month, take an hour, an hour where you actually think about who you are, you stare yourself in your inner mirror. And you ask yourself the tough questions. Am I? Who am I?
What am I? Where am I going? What am I about? Am I honest about myself?
Do I have a message that I live for in life? I may someone who has actual clear ethics? Or do I cross boundaries, whatever works for me? And then because no one can see me I act like it didn't happen? Do I actually care? Am I serious about serious things? Or do I just draw a blind eye to the stuff that I don't want to think about and talk about? Do I feel like I'm an individual who has an individual responsibility in life? Or do I look around and say, Well, no one seems to care. Why should I?
What exactly is it about? Yeah, these questions no one can answer for you. No one will ask for them for you. You have to answer them for yourselves. And if you don't answer them for yourselves early in life, you'll get loot used to the lies and you'll continue within lies. He could no longer do it.
You can feel that he came to a point that this I can't I can't do this anymore. Even though looking at his ethics, his thought was them. He didn't need it. He did not need any of it. But his standard for himself was so high that he decided that I had to take some time. And what are we going to say Allah? When I think about myself, what are we doing? Well, we have no we have no idea what we're doing. We have no idea what we're doing.
The concept of difficulty of taking time and contemplating and performing deep thoughts upon your own life. And being honest with yourself.
The best thing you'll ever do in your life is being honest with yourself. You can you can put a mask up for everybody around you. It's not a good thing, but you will do it that's how life works. But if you can be honest with yourself and say this is I'm not doing this right and I'm not doing that right and they can be a better person. And I know what I know I should be a better person. Being that just having that level of honesty inshallah you should be okay. In sha Allah, that level of honesty will save you at some point in the future. But if you fail to have that level of honesty, I tell you, you will start you will continue to lie to yourself, you will begin to believe your own
lies. And then you will stand in front of Allah and you will lie to Allah subhanaw taala right in his face.
And the Quran tells us that that happens. Yo May Allah Who Jimmy on the phone Allah who can I actually phone Allah calm, we are subordinate, and the homeowner sheet in the home who will carry the bone, they stand in front of Allah when they were directed, and they swear to him and take oath, I swear to you, I was this and I was just like they used to tell you and they believe that their rates but they're not. It's just the lies of lies upon lies upon lies to the point where we don't even know who we are anymore
to the point where we don't have the ability to look ourselves in the mirror and be honest with who we are, and be truthful about ourselves and the way we feel when we think that's how you fix things. But life is quick, and chiffon knows how to keep you busy. So you don't take time and stuff. It's just like a pause. It's like you're pausing for a moment as far as thought for a second.
Why am I doing this? Where am I? I want you to take a second and think about how you were three or four years ago, five years ago, 10 years ago, depending on how old you are. If you're five you kind of think 10 years before obviously. But you can think how were you before? Were you better? You better now? Have you changed in any way you know you're a better person or you're more honest or you're more trustworthy? Are you are you still as compassionate Are you still as empathetic? Are you still as loving? Are you still committed to Allah subhanaw taala and his mission is the same way. Are you closer to God? Are you farther away? Are you a better practitioner as a Muslim? Are you the
worst what's happening?
And if you don't do this, I don't know what we're doing to be
honest there's no point because if you can't be honest with yourself and that's what he did Allah His thought was, this is what made him Rasul Allah you're listening to what I'm trying to say is when it's during the moments that he did this, that he became Rasool Allah that Allah Islam said, I think there's a message there for all of us. He could have been he could have been given prophecy anywhere, anytime, any situation, the moment Allah subhanaw taala chose for him for the Prophet It is thought to himself to be given prophecy was when he was doing this activity so that we would continue to understand that for the rest of our lives and then he filled the Quran with these
concepts he filled the Quran with these concepts and that all those actually followed him on a saw to some understood this in depth. It go back to the one before
yeah, stay stay here for a moment.
Subhanallah with that I wanted to make sure the Prophet Alia slaughter was Sam was prepared for prophecy.
It's not something that a person can be ready for. You can't really prepare for this. But you'll be used to come to you when you think you're probably insane. And he did not have you thought to Sam, as you'll see in a moment. So Allah subhanaw taala eased him in to prophesy by a few things happening.
As he told us, I should tell them they can mimic Saba Naboo route your salejaw you're all happy Miami he but
he will see something at night a dream a vision at night.
And then he would wake up in the morning and he would tell his vision to his wife or to his children. And then exactly the way he said it's the next day or the same day it would happen. Something would occur exactly as he saw it either. You saw to somebody will come running to me. Allah. Oh, dad and the husband. Look what happened exactly the way you said it. And it kept on happening for six months. For six months prior to his
his prophecy. Actually, he said it assaults on me I'm coming to number 11 You're sorry, ha, ha ha Raju Luffy. Miami he he had us on May 16 Waterbury in just a minute. Naboo. So there's nothing left to prophesy except seeing a vision, seeing something that later on happens as it is. It's a part of 46 different parts of Naboo.
You wonder why they're 46.
Okay, how many years? Was he a prophet? Alayhi Salatu? Salam
33. He saw this he had this for six months, how much is six months into a year?
Right? Which leaves us with what what was the fraction? What was the hat was 23? Over a half?
46 Do the math. I'm a doctor. I don't know do math. So you have to do.
Whenever you're good at math. You're in Mississippi. And what about integers?
I have a question up there.
Do you agree?
Do we take it too far? Sometimes?
We do. We take way too far. like way too far. The thing I I despise the most as much as what I do. I love what I do. I love I love talking about the DLF talk, talking to people and explaining Islam. The thing that I don't like, is when someone wants to tell me his dream or her dream. I don't like listen to dreams. Why? Because one one out of maybe 1000 Dreams has a meaning everything else is just something that is meaningless. But we like to believe that our dreams are meaningful. And we waste a lot of time trying to interpret dreams understanding it's not really there. It doesn't really happen that much. A row here is only something that happened it repeats itself time after
time that you see it once doesn't mean anything. And actual what you have for us is when you see it night after night after night or you see it constantly and then you go ask someone who has the knowledge of this. I don't have the knowledge of this never come to me with this I have no idea I have no ability to explain your dream no matter how clear or obvious the dream is you or your guests about your dreams as good as mine. I don't know, other people may have better information than I do. But that's not you don't take this too far. Don't take this too far, is usually something that's you know, for people on a very high level of closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the most of us
dreams are a reflection of the struggles that we're having, we're having during our days. For the for the rest of us Your dreams are a reflection of the of the personal life psychological struggles that you are having within your day, take them seriously, but don't treat them in a mystic fashion or mystic manner. That's my advice to everybody. The last point I will say is some unusual occurrences. He told us that he salatu salam, but again, our covenant Naboo Femap Katha Hotjar in Nila McKenna who can send them a public data. There was a there were things that would do There were rocks and boulders and trees that would do things before he became profit Iceland that were very
unusual. He would walk by and Watkins he was he says to them on a on a suit Allah. You will look around who's rasool Allah, he doesn't know he's Rasul Allah and who is saying this, he looks around he sees nobody. So he keeps on going he spooked out the next day he walked by the same place the same thing he hears and he's coming from distraught he can swear I swear that's something he knocks on the rug, there's nothing there. He can swear it's coming from the rock and he walks by Islam or an AK Allah, Allah, i Same thing for a tree. It was just preparation. Yesterday, here's the word. So he gets a little bit more used to it still Allah Allah CIBJO Salam, because what's going to come
next is going to be very difficult and very heavy.
These are all his preparations move forward two slides. Let's go through them quickly before we take this. These are in my humble assessment. These are the preparations he was given out, you saw, there's probably many more. But these are the ones that I could come up with. These are these are the experiences that he got through his life it was still on the amount of information and experience and knowledge and wisdom that he had in his life did not come through mystic means they weren't miraculous Allah subhanaw taala did not insert him, insert them only through his, through His Will into the profit of his mind and hearts. No, it was like it was the school of life that he
had to learn from Allah usato was that he had to go through a lot of difficulties. You had to unlearn about death at an early age, you have to change five houses in a few years.
You got to spend time with his grandfather and pick up and pick up some political and, and geographical wisdom. I know you saw twisted I mean ethics. He got to live with his uncle and he was forced to work out of young age you have to work with a shepherd with animals and learn empathy and mercy and compassion and leadership. You have to work as a merchant and learn how to deal with people read people speak to people be honest as you're trying to make a living, which is very difficult. He got to travel on a Southwest throughout Arabia. So he has learned people's accents and people's cultures and people's backgrounds is different ethnic groups that exist in Arabia. We think
it's all just one group. But it's not as I explained to you many, many tribes, many genealogies, many backgrounds, they don't they're not similar. Yes, it's the same language but for very different people very different. He had to learn all this Alia, thought was still going through. He got to he got to participate in war and understand how war works. warfare but isn't important. You have to understand what it meant. The horror, the horrific aspect of war at the end, the ability to actually stand your ground and sacrifice and be brave. He learned the art of peace, how to write treaties, how to bring people together, how to how to gather with those who don't agree with something that's
He married Alia salatu salam learned to be a spouse. That's a skill.
It's a skill to be a spouse. It's not something that doesn't happen. By overnight. It takes time. It takes discipline for you to be able to share your life with another individual. He had children how they can start to start having children is not something easy. He has aid. They just know his own child he learned to love his aid as his own child even though he wasn't.
He loved his aid. I just own child even though Jake wasn't his own child to learn to love another first child, as if they're your own. He had in the house had he just two daughters sons hurler and Hinze Khadija had fun from a previous marriage living in his house on a Tesla twisted him.
He had to take care of a family half half of the family wasn't even his. I think
he had to lose two children in his life. He had to guess you have to bury his kids at a young age. PERSON When Abdullah they died before prophecy, before he became prophets, as far as the most of generations go, some say they were after
leadership skills that he learned today he sought to assylum testimonies he got from people and then contemplation and deep thought and reflection. These are the lessons that I think he picked up out of you slept with them along the way. Let's move forward.
This is called Jabba and Nora
is right beside Mecca.
You ever go to for Amara asked to be introduced to this? Unfortunately, people I take this too far. And if you go to the hall now which they've colored in written stuff when it's not as simple as it was before. But it's nice to get a feel of it. To walk up those steps and kind of imagine yourself you're walking up the hill, you're walking in the footsteps of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, just so you can kind of imagine it. What was he thinking? Why was he doing this?
Why was he why was he going up the mountain? And spending night after night after night? What was he doing? Have there?
No iPads, no iPhones, no Xboxes? Nothing.
There's nothing There's what is he gonna do?
Just sitting, the beauty of God Hara the actual place the prophets, I send a movie, there's a few more pictures.
We can play that in a few minutes. The beauty of it that when you go there, you'll understand why he chose it. It took them quite some time to figure it out or to actually find it. Because when you go there and you sit right in the cave, and you look forward, you see you can see the Kaaba. Now it's harder to see the Kaaba because of all the skyscrapers that they have around it. But before that, you can actually see the Kaaba and then all you see ahead of you is just the mountains and the sky. It's just, it's this amazing, just this beautiful imagery that you get to experience where you're sitting up there. I can only imagine him I used to sitting there looking at the Kaaba looking at the
house that was built by Ibrahim alayhis salam when Ibrahim had a dream long time ago, Robbie Jadhav del Bella Amina, what do you know many you have any Yeah, and that would be better than
Emirati man and a minimum bIllahi min earlier. He had a dream and he saw to Islam a place that would be safe and be free and people would worship Allah subhanaw taala live in harmony it he had a vision. Ibrahim out he stood up and he's looking at this house. And you know that it was built by Ibrahim many many many, many moons ago. And this has been completely corrupt.
It now is covered with asylum and people are living a different life and they're corrupted in the way that they think and they've completely gone astray and ethically and socially and financially and politically in every way. Nothing is working and he's sitting up there thinking what is my role? What is my role? Ibrahim on Instagram is my great grandfather. What is my role? What am I supposed to do? Do I leave things as they are? What do I do? So Allah Allah, Allah, Allah have you seldom
sitting in a lot of kala Alia
it's actually quite a walk up 40 or 3940 year old man, he did this for a few years, we'd go for a few nights and come back and work and then go for a couple of nights and just sit there if you would worship. They knew Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets like Selim wasn't going to be introduced to God he knew Allah when it incited to home and Cara Playa Kowloon Allah they knew Allah and I think it started with him never worshipped an idol before there wasn't something in a part of his of his mentality whatsoever. Then what are you thinking about? If you know God, yellow suit Allah, you don't have an idle? Wait, what do you want? Most of us that's all we really have.
Many, many Muslims, all they really possess to begin with. I know Allah, my parents are Muslim. I have heard about prayer and soccer and a couple of other stuff and a few things are haram apparently. And that's as far as I go. While you know, you have probably assessed information as he did, back then I used his problem was was what was my role? What do I do? What is my purpose? Do I have a purpose to fulfill? Does Allah subhanaw taala? want something from me? How do I get my find my way back to the footsteps of Ibrahim Ali asked him how do I find my way? But what do I need to do?
This was his contemplation. And we all share the same questions. The only thing is he didn't have answers out of you saw two of them that were there. And you would do right over there.
It's all over. It's in your house somewhere on one of the shelves.
It's very simple. It's right there, can you we can open and you can figure out your answers. And you're gonna find out what is it that you're here to do? While you're here? Why are you breathing and thinking and living and experiencing everything around you? Why are you conscious in a way that no other creature in this in this universe is conscious? Why is it? Why can you think about fights and contemplate about contemplation and wonder about where you lie? I don't know whether animals that do this. No mammals do this besides us. I don't ever seen a tiger walking and walking around depressed because they don't know what his purpose in life is. They're all happy with whatever Allah
subhanaw taala has given them and they're living it. But the human being has this higher level of functioning that he can't, that makes it impossible not to take it take a moment and think about these things and they can start to assess them was looking for it.
Until that night, okay.
This is where it all began.
Where all this glory and all this beauty
or all this love and compassion for all the sacrifice and courage for all the stories that you hear and will ever hear. These are all started for us at least is a continuation of many, many prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala in oficina II they come out fina you don't often
when they be Unum imparted to you oh Hanaa Ibrahim sama you know it's tough going over with a spouse or ESA where you go over your new seller who never saw a man or a teenager who does Agoura or rose to the Cosna home or they can cover Roussillon lamina ProShow, Malika will tell them Allah who moves to crema, many prophets before you is a continuation Allah Subhan Allah has been teaching prophecies and and sending messages and books and teachings for many, many, many, many, many years and many millennials
and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to be heard from in the beam. You'd be the seal of prophecies it'd be the end of the last one. He didn't think about all these thoughts and why because all prophets before him. And he since Isha is made out of Instagram have been all
been bunny is what you write all them. Since it's
all them. It's hockey, Apple, any use of?
Yeah, Zachary, Wu, Suleiman Musa isa all of them come from that. So at least them wasn't thinking of prophecy at the time.
The beginning is a very simple place, you think that this last message should begin in a place that is glorious. It should be in a place of irony where the music in the background is playing. Like what are the Lion King movie where they where they stand up, and it all goes up and everyone cheers.
top of the mountain somewhere and everyone can see it's in the lane, but bolt of lightning happens in in Fireworks in the sky, you know, it's going to start in a very simple place and start a little cave and you go to the bloody head on that's what you appreciate. They'll stand there looking at it, this is where it started.
Now this is really simple. Because it's not about
the place. It's not about the appearance. It's the strength of the idea. It's the strength of the idea. The place is simple. The beginning is simple. It doesn't matter. The idea is so strong, it doesn't matter where it began, Allah Santos chose this place that was going to be very, very simple. Why? Because the idea is gonna be so powerful, because the idea itself is gonna be something that can transform nations, because he's going to die on them. 23 years later, it is 30 years after that moment.
Islam is going to be in three continents
most races places on the planet will have already entered Islam one way or the other because of the strength of the idea that he was given out at Southwestern I'm so against starting to simple place.
Most Great ideas started simple places anyways.
It was at the end of the lunar month. Some people say is Ramadan. I tend to believe that but if you don't just fine as well, towards the end of the Western what is known about the end of a lunar month.
Now there's no moon, right? It's the middle of the lunar lunar month, but you have that big nice circle in the sky, as you can see, but the end of the lunar mountains month is pretty dark outside. So it was dark, it was suddenly sitting in this cave. He's been contemplating for years thinking, wondering, worshiping ALLAH SubhanA, praising His glory and hoping that he will be told what to do next, and how to bring change upon his people that he lives amongst. How does he bring clay? How does he bring it all back? And can how did he turn it and steer it into the right direction again?
And that simple place in the middle of the night, where it was no light outside whatsoever? And with no introduction whatsoever, GBT rallies around would would come down. It's been 600 years since the sky spoke to the earth. It had been 600 years since the sky spoke to the earth says Allah subhanahu Dubray this thing around for 600 years. I haven't spoken to anyone since the ISA Ali's said I'm prior to him. Have
you ever been I haven't spoken to anyone for quite some time. And now this, the sky will start a dialogue with the earth one more time one last time.
Just one last time. It will only go on for for two decades. That will be the last time this ever happens. One of the beautiful things about this later when the prophets I send them passed away. Amen. But I can have a she would laters cry. She would cry three months after he died on the hill. Salatu Salam when everyone had kind of you know,
emotionally they had settled down for picky, you know, mayhem and what was wrong was happening. So I thought I don't care enough yet. Feola Lawsonia you're you're you're crying because the Prophet. He passed away last year. But I had mallei that
is that I'm praying when I can pee, little Kipper and Louie. I cry because there's no more washi I used to live in a house with the prophets. I said where you used to come up used to come here used to be I didn't see him. But he's a part of this. And he won't come again. You read will never come again. Of course, there's an exception that we'll talk about later. But that's the that's the end. And the dialogue would begin.
Job reality salon would come down in all his glory. You be as you go through the Sunnah. And in this era of the Prophet, at least I think you'll see as you breathe present himself in different ways. He only presented himself in the way that Allah Subhanallah created him two times now and later when we talk about this about Well, there's only two times the Prophet alayhi salatu salam signed him the way Allah subhanaw taala created him you're going to find out if any Gibreel knows Allah Allah. Minister Marie Lucy to me a Jana young for the one Hello, Jan your pseudo folk, he came to me with 600 wings he closed the horizon because not I can see nothing else. I could see nothing but this
thing that's coming to me. To him Alia thought was around this is the an alien. He doesn't know what this is. It's not a human. It's not a creation that he can identify or recognize and know what this is. He comes into the face of Alma Alikum doesn't say doesn't knock on the door doesn't say Well, can I speak to you? No, he comes in he struggles the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he comes with the intention of scaring him of start telling him that was the intention. Obviously if he wasn't going to do that he would let him know give him a heads up, maybe make a few noises outside let the prophets let them come outside and see what's going on. But no, he just entered
the fullness of Allah Allah you send them in the Hadith Allah rate for you in Bukhari and Muslim in many other books and this is the Hadith and that's what it's called the Hadith at the beginning of why, by Allah Vanessa, Allah, Allah Gibreel.
Give me just two minutes. But as the allegation real
basic agenda has to do
He came and he took the profit, so I sent him
It's a hug. I don't know any other way to explain this to be honest. For what money means he went and put his arms around me and he pulled me close. That is by definition, a follow up bunny. Bulava minion. And he squeezed to the point where I couldn't read well anymore. It's about 70 bucks.
a call to mama and I don't know how to read.
File have a look
at the value of a menial job what had happened to her who will vote and then he did it again. And I'm like this, Oh, this must be death. We all wonder what death is going to be like this must be death. What else could this be? I have no idea what this is. I can't read any more than most Senate.
I don't know how to read
Psalm 2030 They took me a third time
but it took me a third time and I couldn't read it let me go told me read the full two man. Okay, fine. Just no more again. What I'll read what you want me to read show me show me what arena whatever you want. I don't know how to read but you don't seem to understand this and you don't seem to care. So I will read your show me what you want to read. No matter what, just no more.
But tell Alehissalaam
Miss Mirrabooka lead lezzy Holla Holla call in son I mean Allah, eco. For a book and a Quran. Allah the unnamable column I lemon in
Then he left.
I'm going to take a minute and
take a break.
Why don't begin with a hug.
When you think about it, it's a very awkward way for things to begin.
What does a hug symbolizes?
Very good, symbolizes love.
It's a good way to start things. I'll just symbolize it. But it wasn't a regular hug was a firm one. It was a hug that was so strong that you felt the one was was gonna die.
So Brent with it brought with it a certain level of seriousness. It was not a game.
It was also physical. Why? Because he may think that he's thought to suddenly that he was dreaming. Maybe you'll think oh, it was all a dream. But no, it wasn't a dream. He felt it. The bruises were there. The pain in his ribs continued out, I can start to assume. It's like when you think I'm not sure if this dream or not, I need someone to pinch me Well, there you go.
You're gonna hug so hard, you're gonna feel you're gonna die. You'll feel the pain on your ribs for the rest of the nights.
It symbolizes love.
It symbolizes strength. It symbolizes empathy. It tells him I just talked to Sam, you're entering something that is extremely serious. It's very serious. It's no joking here. He almost died that night. There was no introduction. We didn't give you time. It didn't tell you if you wanted this or not. We didn't ask you if you if you if this was an option, if you think would you consider a big no, no is going to happen either way.
But we're going to do it with a hug. So understand this also, Philip is full of love and is full of
compassion and empathy.
as strong and as strict and as firm as it was going to be as well. I think that's a beautiful way of looking at it.
The first words he would hear out of your salatu salam from Gibreel were the words that recited upon you just before the break. If gonna, I'm not gonna go into the rest of the verse today. I'll do that next time.
I think it's very embarrassing
as an ummah, that the first words, after 600 years of fasting, just 600 years of nothing of no communication whatsoever. That the first words that you believe that the sky would speak to the earth, that we wouldn't take a moment to think about what's gonna say, there are so many things that this guy could have said that day.
You could have come with anything. And that would be the beginning of the dean. That'd be the first thing that we've learned. And of all the words that he couldn't you could have chosen from, I wonder how many of us would have chosen this one.
I wonder how many of us would have guessed that that would be the first word
would be a command.
We sometimes miss misunderstand the word chakra for reading written text.
To read written text in Arabic that is, you know, that's what that is.
In the Lavina. It's Luna kitab. Allah has when you look and you read written text,
or recite written text. If Quran is a word that has an Arabic at least eight different meanings, it means to learn, it needs to comprehend. It means to think it means to contemplate. It means to read in the literal and figurative way. What do I mean by that? Meaning if I tell you to read into something, or to read between the lines or to read your own life, or to read your experiences, you understand exactly what I mean, even though you're not going to be reading something that's written, you're just going to be taking time to think about what happened. And read this situation. If you look it this is an Arabic use of the word. If there's just if there's a status somewhere, if
something's happening, you always will focus on the news. They'll phone some specialists, some political analysts, and ask them about the law.
He's not going to recite the Quran for them. He's going to tell them what he how he comprehends what's happening, what he thinks is going on, what his explanation of the current situation is and how to get out of it or what the next step needs to be. That's what it means. It means you take a moment you contemplate you think you gather you gather information, you gather as much information as you possibly can, from all the experiences of the people who are living with you
Look before you, and you take that information and you analyze it, and you think about it, and you cut and you use that information to come up with the next steps.
That is what that means.
Of course, if you can read written text, you have a head start. Because every book that you read your reading the experience and the knowledge and the wisdom of some other person who lived many years before you, you're taking everything from their lives, and you're taking it within your own.
And now you have the wisdom and experience of someone else and a few hours of reading.
But that's not the actual meaning of the word itself. It has all those meanings up there. The first word that you will be told to do the first command you'll be given by Allah. What is it by the way?
In Islam, when you're given a command in the Quran, it has to fall under one of the five things right? Every single action has to fall under one of five options. Things are either the federal wajib or they are maboob. Mr. Humbert min Dube, sooner, or they are MOBA. Or they are mcru. Or they are haram. Right? One of these five things is no other. There's no one there's no other option, no six option. Something is when you're given a command, the Quran either commanded me to tell you that this is fuddled. Or he's gonna say that this is something you should do. Or you should say that this is something that's open, you can do it if you want it, you want to leave it go ahead, or is it?
It's a negative command saying that you shouldn't probably do this? Or is it a negative command? That is saying you definitely cannot must not do this?
What is it?
What is it? What is it?
And under which of these five options does aircraft fall? Sea doesn't fall under an option? I'm sorry, it's a trick question. It doesn't really fall under an option.
It's beyond all of that. It's beyond. It's beyond that, that categorization. It doesn't it doesn't qualify to any of these. Why? Because it's it's the basis of what this whole religion and faith is built on. It's built on the concept of Accra, you're going to be an Oma. And where you're going to move forward is what you're going to think you're going to contemplate. You're going to gather knowledge, you're going to learn, you're going to take the experiences of yourselves and those before you are going to move forward based on the best, and the best guests that you have. And the best evidence that is available to you. That is how you're going to live your lives is going to be
through your crop. This is the way you're going to move forward. It's going to be evidence based, it's going to be science based. And I'm not talking about technology, specifically, I'm talking about the scientific method of thinking. This is what o'clock means it qualifies as something much more imminent, much more important, much more crucial and critical within Islam itself. You can't say, Well, it's a firm, because how do you how do you practice it, then, if it's affordable? And if your state doesn't know? Well,
in order for you to say it's a Sunday, you have to have some evidence of why it's not a firm. It's way beyond all of that.
It's a part of the Muslim DNA, it runs, it runs with the blood, if God in how are you going to occur, you're going to do it in the name of the one of the Lord who created you.
Rob Nicola, the heart of you will do it, you'll do it in his name, you will do it in his name, meaning going to read, looking for, for outcomes, looking for results that will please him Subhanallah you're doing it for him. You're doing this as a response to his command jelajah that's what you're going to do it. I can't understand that when that 14 years 1400 years ago was told, and then still,
half of its population is illiterate, and the other half that never picks up the book.
It's better here. By the way, I do this every time I've done this many times before. And whenever I do this talk in the Middle East and I asked the question is always embarrassing results?
Who reads books and then you get maybe one or two people put their hands up hearing I get better responses. But still, it's embarrassing. Because I don't and your books for school don't qualify I'm sorry. If you're in university or going to school, you're those books don't qualify. I'm talking about actually learning. actually picking up the books and learning and trying to take the experiences of those who came before you try to educate yourself about life in general philosophy and religion and, and politics and geography and history actually knowing things because if you don't know anything, you have no power. Because knowledge is power. It's always has been, it was in
the past it is today it will be till the end of time. It's not about your muscles. I know we all want it. It's not it's about knowledge. Those who know more, are much more powerful in their lives in general if we as an OMA knew more as an ummah, if we had more knowledge if we just follow this first command. If this cursed first words just just resignated somehow with us, and we started from performing and practicing etc.
then things would have changed dramatically significantly within a very short period of time. Because you're doing it his Bismillah became the the Halacha inside I mean Alex, He created you from a clot of blood you're very simple before but look at you now. Look at where you are liquid you achieve. Look how far you can go. Look how much you can expand from UCLA.
Blood to this. Imagine if you the more you read, the more you learn, the more you comprehend, you're growing, you're getting bigger and bigger, maybe not in size but in depth and in meaning you're becoming bigger and bigger. You were just a clot of blood at one point. Look what he did. Subhanallah I look how far he brought you continue that way, continue the road he brought you this far, what are you stopping? Why is your knowledge ending here? Why is your experience ending here? Why don't we turn into society today superstitious? It very superficial and very far away from knowledge and science. And we fight about things that are so silly and so meaningless and useless.
Because we're not wasting because we waste so much time not educating ourselves properly not learning. If this is Look at, look at look at the concept of knowledge in the first six, five verses of the Quran. This goes through the concept of knowledge and the first five verses of the Quran. So that's number one, this will be called the Halacha in Solomon, Allah then, again, that's two times read with the comprehension and the meaning that I explained to you and not just reciting. Yeah, I need a written text as I explain it, or a book or a Quran alone with this verse, You know what it means? Read, and your Lord is the Most Generous.
Any of you wondered, what to read?
you didn't say, where is it? Where's the muffler will be here, in both doesn't exist, read?
everything, read everything. Read and your Lord is the Most Generous, meaning generosity will come to you in such abundance if you just read.
Again, don't limit this to a book. Please don't limit this to a book or a book or a crumb.
So twice a lady, Allah He taught. So that's the third time knowledge is here. I love Bill column, column, the pen the tool of knowledge. I limit again, another five times now. I love an insert column. Yeah, let me talk the human being that wish he didn't know six references to knowledge and five verses the first five verses in the Quran. Is that a coincidence?
Is that a coincidence?
It just happened to be it just it just worked out like that. Or is there a message in there for you? Or is there a message in there for me? Are we supposed to pick up on something here? What he is saying if he uses the command to learn twice, he uses the tool of knowledge depend he talks about teaching twice and he talks about learning a sixth time all aspects of that process comes in SPY versus the first five verses that the prophets of Allah Allah He was ever heard.
You can go in and no one knows the Sunnah and go back and read the Sunnah and in depth if you want to
know more about this
and that's it should be left.
He left the profit so I sent them with these words. It's the smell of bacon, the the HELOC HELOC on insulin Allah.
Allah, Allah will call him Allah in Santa Mala Mia, you know, there's no idea what just happened? Or maybe he did.
But wasn't sure. I don't know.
What was the middle of night with no introduction is very startling. He was hugged to death by a Christian never seen before. And he was given these five verses. He was so scared. And there's no problem with him being scared out of your thoughts. And he's human. He was so scared. You're so startled. It was such an intense moment that he began to shake.
If you ever been in a moment like that, you'll know what this means he began to shake he was so he was cooled. And he ran down the mountain
He just ran down the mountain, it would take him at least 20 minutes of running and just ran the whole time out of your slot. Awesome. Where do you run?
I ran back to for deja he ran back to her.
I mean, we often just jump over this point and continue the story because it's so interesting. But he ran back to her it is thought to Islam. How many men here when they're into difficulty ran back from back to their lives? I hope that I hope Inshallah, I hope that's the nature of the relationships. I really do. I pray that this that is the the nature of this relationship. And if it's not as a man, please revise that and as a wife revise that as well.
I'm not trying to blame anyone here. And frankly, there's no point of us continuously blaming one gender for every problem. That's not That's not how things work. When that's not the issue, when that's not the case. When you're in difficulty and you don't run back to your wife the way the prophets I send him ran down that mountain only wanting to see one person interested in the input of one person Khadija, both of them made that happen. Both of them made sure that was the case that he would feel most comfortable telling this story to his wife.
I want you to think about things being a bit different. He's already going and spending a week somewhere in the wilderness leaving his wife and children at home. How she accepted that is beyond me to this I still understand how she was okay with that really low I never she was no she needed to come running down.
Want to tell his wife I was hooked by an alien and told all this stuff that can only be seen and
this is what I get for letting you do this. Of course you're gonna come down from aliens spoke to you right? Some alien hugging you come on I mean if this is what it is, this is my life and Hamdulillah that is my life. My husband goes and spends a couple of months up in the mountains somewhere doing something I don't understand. Now he comes telling me some aliens hugging him telling him words I don't understand. No not Khadija.
Well, listen easy. I don't know how she I do not understand the job of the loved one. And that's why I have this level of respect for her that I don't have for anyone else. Because I don't understand her. How she responded to him. So I said the way she did is beyond me. He came in running and telling him you know we need to fiddle we need to put a blanket me on me put a blanket on me. Warn me he was freezing out he slipped me was shivering so she does doesn't she's not upset. She's not yelling. She's not looking at what is this? What happened? She was calm. She does it? What's wrong? What happened? And he told her the most bizarre story you could possibly imagine.
I want you to imagine him telling her out of the Allahu anha what happened in the motion.
And no matter how many times you play this, this dialogue in your head, it just doesn't make sense. I cannot imagine her response be it has to be hurried. I told it had to be Khadija Allah subhanaw taala chose her things would have been different it wasn't Khadija. Well it was
for quite a time when it okay calm down.
So the Prophet as I said, we looked at her and said Yo Dee Joshi to Allah and FC. I got scared for myself. I thought this was punishment of some sort. I thought that Allah subhanaw taala was punishing me. Immediately she would answer you can move forward one more. Kilo Allah. Learn your physique Allahu Aveda. She said, No, No, impossible. Allah would never punish you. He would never miss you too. Not Not Not a chance. And then she would count for him. Oh my gosh. Well, the Allah why now five things of why he thinks that Allah subhanaw taala would never punish him some Allah Allah you sent them and this is prior to his prophecy, things he did prior to his prophecy. I will
explain them to you in sha Allah next. He's talking about luck. I thank you for coming by the Philippine apocalyptic Shinola in the interest of a miracle to break or steal Allah who was telling them robotic identity, you know, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adjumani
