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

continue to see there's pages I understand

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

maybe 12 more sessions or 13 more sessions will be finished, I was asked how long would it take to finish. So Java 12 or 13 more weeks, meaning some, somewhere at the end of October,

00:00:17--> 00:00:26

probably will end October with the guff. That's how long it will take, give or take, of course, sometimes it will be weeks or

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

a week where you have to stop. But what I will talk about

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

today, and today in extreme control, we'll be talking about the story. And then, of course, a little bit as

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

well for each.

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

For each story, there's some commentary as well, some comments on the story itself. So I'm just

00:00:56--> 00:01:03

gonna find some verses that were just there to comment on what happened before the start to sort of huddled in the thing that demanded to to,

00:01:04--> 00:01:21

to garden. And then after that story, you'll also find commentary. And then when you're finished reading the two stories after that will be commentary after that as well. So this is not just stories, the commentary on the story itself, those are extremely important. Probably sometimes a bit more important than the story itself, meaning

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

what it is that we're supposed to learn from the story, or what is it we're supposed to benefit from the story.

00:01:29--> 00:01:32

So we're gonna start 16th and shallow is just the beginning of the second page.

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

So what we've talked about so far, Inshallah, just to make sure that everyone's on the same page, as far as where we are in

00:01:48--> 00:02:04

sort of talks about the four elements of building a civilization or, or community or society, how it is you build something that will that has the ability to continue. Now, what are these elements that I've talked about,

00:02:05--> 00:02:22

you will find power, when you recite the story of Automate, you will find knowledge when you recite the story of Musa when you will find money or wealth when you recite the story of the team. But then the first story that exists in the Surah, that the surah is named after is

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

the cave. And it talks about a group of very young individuals in their teens

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

that have an idea, the first thing you need in order for you to build something of great

00:02:38--> 00:03:10

impact and influence and that can continue. Because the ability to carry on is a great idea is the depth of the idea is the theology is the ideology, what is it that you're going to face your movement upon? What is it that you stand for? What are your principles? What are your Maxim's What are your fundamental rules, this is the first thing you need, you can have a lot of money and knowledge and power. But without that fundamental idea, they are going to be used incorrectly, or they will go to waste, you need that idea. And this

00:03:12--> 00:03:48

explains that explains the strength of the idea the importance of having it and the effects of that idea can have both short term and long term. And for us, it is very similar to what the prophets of Allah, Allah I just did in his life, coming with a very strong idea. And actually all he really left out of his thoughts was after he, you know, moved on from this world was people was a very it was a group of people, maybe 300 foreign individuals thought who had an idea when you stood what is it that they stood for, and had their principles straight, and they were capable of carrying it to the world and then making and then money and wealth and power came after that to continue on to the

00:03:48--> 00:03:57

formation of the Islamic civilization or cleanup or, or movement, but it always begins with the idea.

00:03:59--> 00:04:33

And the story of early calf is a bit even more deep than that. It doesn't talk about a very large group of people who had an idea talks about tops, top seven people, tops, only seven people, their ages, their 50s. They're in their teens. I need they're between 13 and 19. They're pretty young guys. Now these guys have an idea of how you have social slash financial support to their people, based on the concept of that you know, in the love believing in Allah subhanaw taala and believing in the cause of why they are alive, what is what it is they're here to do.

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

And Allah subhanaw taala is showing us you see these guys, you see what they did, how they thought what their intentions were and what they actually practiced. I'm going to show you what I did for them and what impact what they did have so that you will never say ever again that it's impossible to fix the situation that you're in. So we never say that change is impossible to actually achieve. So you never ever get the chance to say that

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

situation that we are living in right now is too difficult and complicated and there is no way out of it. That's why the beginning of the story after the introduction of the surah was a massive hitter. And that was horrible get if you want to rock any girl and woman at now Joba? Or is it that you thought that the story only got to what we did for them was a an awkward story or a story that was algebra that was beyond what we usually do something that I will only do once No, I will do this many times. I've done this many times and will continue to do it many times. It's not Allah subhanaw has the ability to support you and to stand by you is your ability to take the stand that Erica did.

00:05:34--> 00:06:12

That's why when we look at the idea that talks about what they did, what about when I left Columbian, and we strengthened their hearts and we gave them grit, and we give them ability to stand to stand their ground. If Babu is calm, when they took a stand. When they finally said what it is that's happening right now is not right, and I want to take a stand, I'm going to voice out my concern, and my, my disagreement with the way things are running right now and how I believe that it should be different and it can be better, and that it needs to change. Taking a stand is always difficult. Because you're always taking a stand in a position in opposition to someone else, or do

00:06:12--> 00:06:18

something else, or to a different group. And they're not going to like it taking a stand always needs. You know,

00:06:19--> 00:06:41

it's courage, bravery. And it's clarity. Because if you take a stand, and then you don't understand it, well, I can easily talk you out of it. Or someone can easily come in and tell and convince you that you need to do something else and you end up losing that and then taking a stand needs a lot of elements. And he's a very clear and strong idea that you're committed to the understand all the parameters of

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

this story is extremely, extremely relevant today.

00:06:46--> 00:07:18

Because the way Allah subhanaw taala started now and he started it differently, maybe maybe I wouldn't be able to talk about it in the same way I'm talking about right now. Maybe if he told us this was a miracle of all time, but he did for adult GEF telling us that this probably is not going to happen again. So we just read it to you know, make dua for them and enjoy their victory. But he tells us right off the bat, no, no, this is not weird. It's not awkward. This is not beyond what we do. We do this all the time. I do this all the time, you guys just don't seem to take stands. You don't seem to gather amongst each other. You don't you don't seem to come together, those who are

00:07:18--> 00:07:37

like minded, those who have similar ideas, or strong ideologies that they know what the parameters are and division have is they're not coming together. For some reason. They're not coming together, they're not taking the stand. If they're coming together, they're doing something that doesn't involve taking a stand. But once they do alasa pound out as they're just trying to stand by them to support them. They are called

00:07:38--> 00:08:12

a team, or a team being the charter of their of their fundamentals. And our theme is a piece of a board that has things written on it that has points from the rock, punk rock community, you numerated what you're writing, you're not just writing, generally just whatever. No, no, you have numbers. Number one, this is what we believe in number two. Number three, these are our visions is our mission statement. This is what we stand for, and is what we're going through our short term plan and our long term plan. That's what they had. They wrote it down. There were 1314 15 year old guys, that they had the depth and the level of intelligence to do that. That's why Allah subhanaw

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

taala medical team, they wrote it down and made sure it was clear, and made sure they knew what it is they stood for. So they could always go back to it. So never lost touch of it. Right? How do you know where you're going? If you've never actually discussed it in depth?

00:08:27--> 00:08:53

We just keep on walking in circles today as Muslims, we just were circulating around each other, nothing's happening? Well, it's been the same stuff we've been complaining about for at least 100 years. I feel like we're inheriting the subjects of complete, and your dad just here. These are the problems just continue to complain to us and give it to you. And we're not even you know, making sure that's not even happening anymore. Your kid is not inheriting from your history or complaints. They're getting tired of them. So he starts complaining about them doesn't care anymore.

00:08:54--> 00:09:05

Even though we're not passing down properly to our next generation, or at least a complaint. Or at least they continue to be complaints if they start to be complacent. No one cares anymore. Because it's lost, everything is lost.

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

Why? Because we lacked division with

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

just three guys, right? three to seven. Let's say there are three I like thinking that the three sometimes just for my own sake because we always believe that groups have to be huge, don't they just three guys came together like minded came up with the plan and saw their vision started working sorry, supporting their community properly, sorry, helping the people love them because of it.

00:09:27--> 00:09:33

They looked around them they didn't like what they saw. Because a lot of guna Abu Salah went on. He

00:09:35--> 00:09:35


00:09:37--> 00:09:59

talking it is our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. There is no one else. We cannot say otherwise. We can't say we can't say anything else. We can't claim that there's anyone else but him that's wrong. Our people unfortunately are doing that they have no evidence to support that they're wrong. They shouldn't be saying these things we wish we can find a way to help them and they did. And they found ways to help them

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

But here's the thing. What do you think your effect is going to be?

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

If you decide to take a stand within the community you live in.

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

Usually we think about it like it's going to be simple. It will be nice. It will be based on how big I am. I'm not too big. Five, six of us have an idea. We're going to work with it, and maybe help 200 300 people. We never ever think in our hearts. It's hard. Even if you're very ambitious, it's very difficult for you to say, no, no, what I'm going to start today or we're going to do today is going to change the way the earth works. We're going to change the whole Ummah status as too much neither that neither did they needed these three or seven people or five people think for a moment that their efforts that their vision, their mission, their thoughts, their intention to make a

00:10:47--> 00:11:20

difference was going to go to the extent that it actually went and there's the whole lesson that we're going to learn from reciting and learning the story recite. Number 16, where Allah subhana wa Tada is describing to us what it is they did when they decided to retreat into the cave, why did they retreat because their mission became so big, because they became so notorious and famous for what they were doing that the king of the land was oblivious to, or claimed to be gone either way, was someone who did not like what they were doing. So they put a bounty on their heads, he wanted to take them, and he wanted to put them in jail and persecute them. So they got very scared, of course,

00:11:20--> 00:11:57

the only young young young men and their teenagers, so they decided, okay, we're not going to stop, we're gonna run away, but we need to retreat. Retreating is a good thing to do in life. Why stop for a moment, think strategic, just it's a strategy stuff. Okay to stop, I need to think again, I have to see this is reality has changed significantly in comparison to how it was when I started this. When I started doing what I was doing, there was a reality I was very different. I need to stop. Step back is you retreat. The concept is very beautiful. When you take a step back, he thinks it is eating for a broader angle anyway, if you're in the middle of it, you know, it's hard to see when

00:11:57--> 00:12:27

you're watching a ballgame, right? We can always anyone, even if you're not a you can always point out that that's the problem. See, that player doesn't know what he's doing. And this guy shouldn't be standing over there and he should be substituted. You know, why is it that you're so mashallah perfect, because you're stepping outside, it's easy. When you're in the game. It's not, it's not as easy. It's impossible, it's very hard. It's smart to retreat, when they found that the reality changed dramatically for them, they said, Okay, we need to find a place to retreat to think and to go to another plant, we have to rethink our strategy all over again. So they looked for a place they

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

could be, they could be safe, and they went to the

00:12:31--> 00:12:43

Zika that the Prophet told us and retreated to and it's not began from, it's not the exact same one, but the same concept. Small place that a lot of people come from, because deep thought will happen in their commitment and clarity of

00:12:45--> 00:12:59

vision will come from it. So they retreated, and they sat together they said look at what do we do now? Now what do we do? And they start talking amongst themselves. And we're saying Charlotte This is where we are looking to sort of be like in a shape on your body

00:13:04--> 00:13:07

Bismillah R Rahman you're walking

00:13:11--> 00:13:17

what easier doesn't want to do now Allah

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

either you can be strong like

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

your Walkman.

00:13:40--> 00:14:11

If you look at the world, there's another small one right after now, don't be fooled by the fact that it's small in size, it doesn't make a difference the size of the world that's written in the Quran, it was written there, it's a well, it's going to be recited just like any other well, and you see, the men are the cowboy hats on top of it is gonna be for accounting, even if it's written small, doesn't make any meat is gonna be less, it's going to be four counts anyway. So Whoo. And you count it four times, alright? Well, you will hate like I'm in every meal, all the

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


00:14:15--> 00:14:54

So this same snapshot of the story was at the beginning of it all. So Allah subhanaw taala started with that, then he retreated back and told you how it began arriving to this point of the story again, where if you had to move, Tesla is when you left people, when you decided that you don't want to be in a social gathering anymore. It does that does mean that he doesn't want to be a part of this anymore. The same thing is used for when a player stops retires the words that he said also means retirement of a sport or of a job. So we've yet to move on. And when you decided to leave them to take a step away from them all and to go to things on your own, we got to move Why am I doing

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

everything that they worship, meaning you left them, you left you the way you have your people and you left

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

Everything that they worshipped everything that they carried and in their hearts and in their minds to be equivalent to Allah subhanaw taala. And anyway, that's why immediately after Illa Allah except Allah subhanaw taala meaning and as you decided to leave the way of your people to retreat or retire from what they do, and from everything that they worship, except ALLAH, you hold on to Allah Subhana Allah, you held on to the belief that you had the clarity of the oneness and the uniqueness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:15:31--> 00:15:47

And you were told the one another retreat to the cave twice now, in this tour, right twice, and this sutra is oh, well fits here to El Kaffee. At the beginning, and I remember, I'm not sure what it is, what is it number 10. And then this one here, the same word Allah.

00:15:49--> 00:16:31

Very important, the concept of retreating within the context of the stories that we are reading, you need to retreat every once in a while, you can take a moment, take a step back and look at the bigger picture and ask yourself, is it going in the right direction? Am I doing it for the right reason? Is it happening the way you should do that for your own life? Not just for for projects that you're trying to run? Or, or accomplishments or achievements, or you're working towards? Or your ambitions, even just with your life? Take a step back? Of course, not literally. But again, figuratively, and look at how things are running. Right? Tell yourself, the story of your life is

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

listened to in a sea? Do you like it?

00:16:34--> 00:17:09

If someone was to describe you, do you like the description that you're going to hear about who you are? Do you enjoy it? Do you think this is yeah, I like that like to be seen that way? And you're like, No, that's not that's not who I am at all. Why am I being described like this? Well, that's what is apparent right now. Those who are in contact with you, those who are living with you and working with you and spending time with you. This is what they see you today. Do you like what it is that you're seeing us know that maybe you should retreat and take a moment maybe reconsider your strategy all over again, who knows you retreat to the case, what will happen is you retreat into a

00:17:09--> 00:17:50

very small area. Yet in short, local buco Muhammad, Allah subhanaw taala was spread amongst you, you will send your insurer is to spread meaning he will send upon you mercy that will spread in every direction, you onshore Let come for your sake, he will spread amongst you and from you and to you from his mercy subpoena with that we will look on when he will ease for you, or he will prepare for you from your other from your matter from what it is that you're going through. And I'm going to go on from the situation that you are in middle of a way of ease, the ref ref means is Mirifica means a matter of ease and benefits. RIP and Minerva kkOma fee refund amount of money, meanwhile, has ease

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

in it and what there is benefit from

00:17:54--> 00:18:03

retreat. And then Allah subhanaw taala because you do that you will spread on you His mercy, He will allow you to find a way. Why?

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

Because that's how, as human beings, we're supposed to live our lives.

00:18:09--> 00:18:44

We're supposed to be people who have inner criticism, and self regulation. We're supposed to be like, That's how we're supposed to function. We're supposed to be individuals who don't need others, to tell us that we're mistaken. Because we retreat quite often on our own, and figure out that what we're doing right now isn't working. So we need to change the strategy that we're supposed to be doing. We're not supposed to need people to always point out our mistakes for us. Okay, that doesn't work anyway. It doesn't work want to talk about all practicality. It doesn't work. Try it. I hear you. Well, Allah, he tried to be the person who points out mistakes for people and tell me how it

00:18:44--> 00:19:16

works for you. telling me how much people enjoy your company and telling me how many people actually listen to you when you do it. Very real, doesn't work very well, doesn't work very well. Very few people have the ability to accept it. And very few people have the ability to actually do it properly. But as a Muslim, what you're supposed to have in your life is the ability to self regulate, to enter criticize, to retreat. Because once you do that, when you take a step back, revise and look again, and find out that Oh, this isn't No, this is not how it's supposed to be happening. I don't know where I left.

00:19:17--> 00:19:49

I made a wrong turn somewhere I have to have to repeat the loss of power I will spread amongst you is mercy upon you at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala will come and he will help you find a way of ease because that's what you're treating in the first place. Your point of retreat here, they weren't running away. It's important that you understand that they were not running away. They weren't they weren't just trying to hide from the persecution of the king. No, that wasn't their goal. But like, the reality has changed. We need to rethink how this is gonna happen. You have to come up with another plan, obviously, to continue with our current plan is not very smart, because

00:19:49--> 00:19:56

it didn't work out. Because now we're in a situation where our lives are threatened and we don't

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

we can't continue it. So we need to come up with a different

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

Plan. This is what the hookah did. This is what we're supposed to be doing. Hmm, this is what we're supposed to be doing. We're supposed to be trying things, putting coming up with visions and plans, short term and long term executing, we retreat, we look at it again, it doesn't work, we try something else and we keep, why is it that I feel like the Muslims are our people, even even in the way that we are from a psychological and sociological point of view, just as people were so just non flexible? Why is that everything is so hard to move in our communities? It seems like everything is stone. Allah is is like you're pushing a mountain every time you want to change some simple thing.

00:20:40--> 00:21:17

Why is it? Why when did we lose our flexibility? When did we lose our ability or our way of thought that includes us retreating, and rethinking our strategy again, Allah subhanaw is telling you to do it, and he was spread mercy and He will find you ease just do it like they did? Would it be smart from an income for them to continue doing what they didn't get killed? Would that be the right way for them to do it? No, of course, it was their Shahadat and whatnot. But if they were wrong, they were wrong, why would you continue to do something that you know for a fact is not going to work anymore? You have logical rational reasoning and understanding that this isn't going to work

00:21:17--> 00:22:02

anymore, it's not working the idea doesn't suit us anymore. Let's find something else that does that helps us where we are when we are to continue to carry on ideas that have died a long time ago like long time ago and tried to force them on devices that they just not adjusted for them. They just don't work is not slamming because it's just not smart. It's not smart. I lost some pounds I retreat to the game and that will spread my mercy on you will prepare for you allow you to find your way of ease where you can succeed and benefit and also find ease and so they did now they didn't know what's gonna happen next you and I know what's gonna happen but they didn't

00:22:03--> 00:22:17

I had no idea it was actually if you have given them 500 options of what's going to happen next and one of them was that they're going to sleep for 300 years and wake up they wouldn't choose that one I'm pretty sure they would not one of them we would think that was possible when you

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

see something that makes sense but nonetheless What happened actually more than that so we'll continue with

00:22:28--> 00:22:35

what our Shem said either for the desert oh well I'm gonna feed him that tell Yanni.

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

What either

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

boom that shame

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


00:22:56--> 00:22:57


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

very gaming in yeah

00:23:08--> 00:23:12

me yesterday loving first human Moon dead

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

women he

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

fell in Fallon $30 humare

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


00:23:32--> 00:24:06

They discussed amongst themselves couple of teenagers couple of young guys, why the mission or vision who felt that they either their lives mattered who felt that they could amount to more than what people tell them they can amount to. And they actually were serious individuals that have serious thoughts and cared about serious problems and lived a serious life. You were mature for their age. And they understood that they could be more understood that faiths and religions and big movements in history are all built on people that age group. That change comes from this age group. It doesn't come from people who are alone. It doesn't. You can help it, you can support it, you can

00:24:06--> 00:24:42

be a part of it, you can influence it, but you're not going to be it. It's going to happen with the younger people. It's going to happen with our younger generations. They're the ones who are going to change it. We are here to support them. We are here to make it happen to allow it to move forward. It's all we're here to do. If you don't understand your role in things, you're not going to do it right. If you don't understand your role, you're gonna mess it up. It's that age group. You don't believe me? Read the sutra fit. Yeah, fit. Yeah, meaning teenagers. That would be our job in the 20s and 30s. They weren't. We had an idea and worked for it. They made a difference. told they're going

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

to be killed or retreat to strategize, and God bless them. They sat down they talked about or they came up with an idea, but it was really late at night by the time they were finished discussing what they were going to do. So as normal human beings they slept with the intention in the morning to execute their new plan. They woke up 300 years

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


00:25:01--> 00:25:12

they woke up 300 years later, I want you to put yourself on one of these guys places. Listen show us that you'll be one of them. So you will be exactly like, if you want to be like someone be like one of these guys.

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

They woke up 300 years later, of course, they had no idea was 20 years later. So the Quran takes time to describe to us their confusion.

00:25:21--> 00:25:44

olanzapine took time and disorder to describe to us their confusion to what happened to them just so that you can live it more just so that you can vividly take some time and imagine it I need you to turn on your imagination and think and put yourself in their place. That's the whole point of having this page in the Quran telling you this is what happened. Why know what happened with our chips and you will see the sun either on it well, it came from the east will rose from the east

00:25:45--> 00:25:54

dies Oh, and caffeine would move away a bit in the sky so it didn't touch so that slate wouldn't enter wouldn't enter the cave. You're like what?

00:25:56--> 00:26:13

So mine is being bent. So there's a physical change to the way you laid is going to enter yes, it's gonna be a physical change, there's going to be a miracle something that is going to defy the laws of the universe, something that you may not even think is possible is going to change is our one caffeine that's why

00:26:16--> 00:26:23

well, he does not know that when it comes down from the from the west to playable home that she moves away a bit.

00:26:24--> 00:26:40

So design changes, something bends. That is weird. It's something bending. motherland's something bent, so the light is bending so it's not entering. Right, usually, usually, normally we just enter into the into the front door, wake them up. But notice here the light is gonna bend on this point.

00:26:41--> 00:26:48

And then when it sets a little bit darker, it moves away from them that the shimmer. So when it comes up,

00:26:49--> 00:26:59

likes things to the right so it doesn't enter and then it says it moves away to the left so doesn't enter either. So light was on entry for them in the morning or in the evening. So wouldn't bother

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

with a little bit of people who get the Shiva womb fee schedule. Wait a minute, and they're in the middle of it. And Phaedra is the middle part of an open room. The bedroom is the opening part where the part where that is facing outdoors won't be fungible.

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

What is the ISA after that he means that he can

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

that is one of the signs of the last

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

year Oracle's that Allah Subhana

00:27:26--> 00:27:36

Allah subhanaw taala when in his miracles business, that he did this, they were not prophets. They were not prophets. No, they were just guys. And they were not over 20 years old or younger than

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

that I told us they could have been three with a dog by the way.

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

For all the dog eaters, probably

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

the guide

00:27:50--> 00:28:02

was titled to how to hide the sun, hide the sun's light bend in the morning to the right and move away in the evening to the lessons so wouldn't enter the open part of the caves wouldn't bother them while they were sleeping.

00:28:03--> 00:28:04

That he can

00:28:05--> 00:28:10

very clearly sticked This is one of the miracles of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada me yes

00:28:12--> 00:28:42

of course have to listen to that your your heart and you're ready to listen to something very, very important. Everlasting statements in the Quran. One of the statements the Prophet SAW Allah hi to you, I just want to send them said every single week on them in but every single week say this every week. So you can see how relevant to the government not only tells to read it every week, but he says this part every single week every email gets up there. He doesn't say you're like what the students didn't memorize the doesn't know what he's doing. I didn't say what didn't you didn't say?

00:28:44--> 00:29:18

What's wrong with you definitely supposed to say that's what he said. I don't also have to remind him another when they get to mark they will see these things. man Yeah. Phil will move the one who who? Who takes his guidance from Allah subhanho wa taala, who receives guidance accepts it from Allah Subhan Allah is the One who is truly guided, will make you believe and those who are misled by Allah subhanaw taala are misled away from the path of Allah subhanaw taala you will not find for them, anyone to support them or anyone to guide them will Ian is a supporter or someone to stand by you in motion as someone to guide you or to teach you.

00:29:19--> 00:29:42

If you have chosen the pathway of Allah subhanaw taala, you are the truly guided one. And if you have chosen something else, then there is no one there's no power in the universe that can stand by you and save you. And there is no one who can teach you anything that will change that for you. It's your choice. It's your choice, whether you want to accept this guidance or not. Nothing else will change. If you accept it then good for you. You've landed in the right place. And if you haven't, then I'm sorry.

00:29:43--> 00:29:45

Nothing can help no one to standby even no one can.

00:29:47--> 00:29:57

Understanding why is there any significance of that there was that dog? The dog? Yeah. So we'll come to that later. It's coming into we're talking about that

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


00:30:06--> 00:30:06


00:30:07--> 00:30:08

I'm going to share it anyway.

00:30:11--> 00:30:42

In desire, Allah subhanaw taala talked about something that easily he could have not talked about and not change anything in the story really. They were sleeping during that time. But what matters what happened? We accepted the fact that they stopped it for 300 years, it's a weird thing to listen to what we accepted it anyway, he didn't need to add to that, that the sun's light was bent in the morning to the right, and that it was cut away from their opening from the opening of the cave. During the evening to the left, we didn't need to know that Rachel nationals, right they said this is a miracle. And then he told him doors were guided by Allah guide and those who are not will never

00:30:42--> 00:30:48

find guidance period. Right? There's there's a very powerful idea in what he's trying to tell us.

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

So here's, here's what you need to understand.

00:30:53--> 00:31:11

All that is required of you is to take the stand. And just like you change the laws of physics in the universe for them, he will change it for you as well stop complaining and saying nothing can change. It's impossible. Things are so complicated, it will not happen. What more complicated than the Sun in the sky.

00:31:12--> 00:31:47

You can change this. Have you ever seen anyone who could change how the sun actually moves in the sky? Can you bend light yourself to tell the sun Okay, don't enter your light at this place in the morning or the evening? Can you do that? He can. And he did. And they weren't prophets. All they did was they took a step. Just take a step. If you have to do your part, stop looking at how is it going to work? It's not going to work. There's too many people too many problems. It's not your business truck stop trying to control the universe. Why? Because he does. He does you're not supposed to try to control the universe. What you're supposed to try to do is take the right stand, stand for what

00:31:47--> 00:32:24

is truthful and write righteous and be brave about and do your part. And do it right now. Just do it aimlessly and viciously, viciously and with with no guidance and no do your part properly. And when there's a problem retreat again and think again and then do it again. Do it rights properly. And Allah subhanaw taala is willing to bend the laws of the universe for you. He will have the sun moving the sky differently for you. Just like that's why the beginning of the story. He told you to think this was algebra. I think I would never do this again. You're very mistaken if you do I've done this many times before. I'll do this many times before you don't if you're up you actually

00:32:24--> 00:32:47

moved did you change the rotation of the Earth? Are you bent light in the sky at a certain point on the planet? Just were these people? Yes, I did that for them. Why? Because you've called move on because it took a stand and they said something the other team and they had a vision and we did hire the spread higher. So Allah subhanaw taala the laws of the universe it says anyway, it would everyone's

00:32:48--> 00:33:21

not your business to question what he will do for you. It's not your thing. He's telling you just like I did it for them. I will do it for you. The question is left did you take a stand? Did you do something? Are you are you representing something worthy? Are you serious about it? Or what are you doing? Know the why? Why are you complaining? Complaining if you're not doing the job? I showed that I'm not sure you? Did I did I not tell you what I did for them. They're not prophets. They're not prophets. I don't even know if we don't even know their names.

00:33:23--> 00:33:35

We don't know their names to the point where even if you are going to go look at look at the Seven Sleepers the story that exists within the biblical in the Old Testament story. It's not something that they don't know about. They don't know they need to have the audio there. They're anonymous people as far as we're concerned.

00:33:36--> 00:33:46

Yet Allah subhanaw taala back the laws of physics for them and you will change them for you as well. If you take a standard understanding that the concept that exists here

00:33:47--> 00:33:56

now that is supposed to sit with you differently but that's it when you think about that he telling you this is not algebra and this is what I did for them

00:33:58--> 00:34:06

it is not I never did it for them when you will do it for you what is the difference that is that we're left with the differences us and them

00:34:07--> 00:34:14

it's just how they saw the life and the world and their commitment and their role that we need to play in the way unfortunately

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


00:34:20--> 00:34:20


00:34:28--> 00:34:33

one police whom they're telling me whether the Shimon

00:34:39--> 00:34:45

what can go bad the the or ie the US lead

00:34:52--> 00:34:58

now with Bala I lay him will lay down in whom he or

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


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


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

when we mean who more

00:35:10--> 00:35:29

if you were to look at them, you would look at them, you would think they were awake, and they're actually sleeping because they're moving around so much. Because you know, if you lay down for more than a certain number of hours and you get sores and and then that you know you die from from gangrene or from different diseases, so you need to continuously be moving around. And if you don't move around enough, then your muscles or

00:35:30--> 00:35:43

dystrophy hits them and then you can't even when you wake up, you're incapable of moving anymore. So you have to keep on moving around. If you don't move and you die, very, very simply the first few 100 years so this is gonna be a big deal. They have to continue to be moving around so they continue to move.

00:35:44--> 00:36:18

You look I think they were moving around so much during this thing you would think they were awake. But I said who who may have been with them, Rocco but actually sleeping with a legal woman, we're turning them around moving them around from one side to the other. They tell you any engineer, right without a shemale on the left, where can you go home, they sit when the law even was seen, the dog was not moving around, they don't didn't live. The dog didn't wake up. If you 100 years later, he died there. But the dog sat right in front of the opening of the cave, it will see it means the opening the opening when you open the door, the firt the corridor that's right in front of a house

00:36:18--> 00:36:26

is called the last season. And there's words that are similar to that and in the slang Arabic that exists in certain countries regarding the open part of a house.

00:36:27--> 00:37:05

So it will say it is where if you're entering the cave, the first part of the key that's where it is. So he was sitting there with his with his with his four legs as the lie is front paws out because Boombastic when the lie he looking up really well. So you know with him if you were to run into them, coincidentally and see them you would see a dog with his for buyers looking for you. And then people in there moving around because consistently that will lead them in unfulfilled order, you will think oh, this is this something spooky here, this would run away. If you thought it would run away, you would turn your back and run with them. What do you mean home robot and he would be

00:37:05--> 00:37:11

extremely scared when you saw them. Because imagine 300 years imagine their hair and their beards and imagine how they looked

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

something scary. Very scary.

00:37:16--> 00:37:21

So when they because no one saw them, but it wasn't. If you saw them, it's absolute

00:37:22--> 00:37:58

madness. Why am I doing all this? What's the point of imagining the show? How is this a part of the story? Why is this? Why does this matter? So you understand it's real. It was real. They slept for 300 years, a loss of power that put them to sleep for 300 years. And he changed the laws of physics and light and air so that they could do so when he made sure that they moved around just enough and that people look they came close and saw the dog skeleton later on, they would get scared and they would walk away, they wouldn't come near, he made sure that was happening. A lot of work. You couldn't do that if you tried for three hours. And you had a whole army of people trying to

00:37:59--> 00:38:29

construct this and make it continuous not gonna work. But Allah subhanaw taala did it why because they took that step, because they did their part. Because they they stood for something and they they had a meaning that there was a meaning to their lives. A meaning that Allah subhanaw taala looks forward to every one having in theirs, you know, is 300 years the physically grew up. We don't know that know, as far as we know, they stayed the same age. As far as we know, they stayed the same, just just like

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

any hair.

00:38:32--> 00:39:03

There are generations from the slightly yet that we mean from the books of the old the Bible, the Old Testament, and what scholars of Christianity and Judaism have talked about that yeah, they had long hair when they woke up longer than normal, and that they look different. Like obviously they looked a bit different. But when they woke up for them it wasn't, wasn't totally clear. But they couldn't they couldn't see it wasn't the first thing that came to their minds. That wasn't the thing. They felt that something was different. It was a bit confusing. But that wasn't the first thing that they came to.

00:39:04--> 00:39:37

Now, again, this is the love he's telling you that you can. This is a miracle of philosophy that he did. He didn't like, how and why and what happened. I don't know in detail, struggling with this thing. I've asked me how to stand in the way I don't know. I've no idea. I wasn't there never explained it to me. But all I know is that something he changed something? Why did he bring that up? Because he's trying to tell us something. There's a message here that we're supposed to learn. We're not supposed to be held up on and caught up on how difficult things are and a little hope there is for change to actually happen. Rather, we're supposed to focus on our role. We're supposed to do our

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

job properly. We're supposed to come together and plan and our vision to retreat and think again to strategize and do our thing and try to replay them and leave the loss because none of business to begin with. And then he will change things for us. It's just things will change dramatically. We're not even done. Maybe they all go this is That's enough. Allah Subhanallah it bent the laws of light for him. No, hold on. That's not all he did for them.

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

If that's something awesome then we're not done yet there's even more

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

work at daddy

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

had that be wary become heavy

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

be what repeat be wary. Right so what work with the customer on the right and the fact on the world is silver is what silver is called an error because well it's another way but it's silver that is turned into currency so field blood is just general just the actual metal itself silver what is currency that is made from silver so that's what it means so we'll be worried people be wary equimat e el Medina

00:41:31--> 00:41:32


00:41:36--> 00:41:36

a huge

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

failure Deacon Barry's been mean

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

well yeah, of

00:41:58--> 00:42:02

course where are you Sri on Nabi going ahead.

00:42:07--> 00:42:28

Again, this is all all the description here is just for our imaginations. Imagine the sun every day at a certain point, the light bending to the right so it doesn't enter and then moving away at the left in the evening so it doesn't enter again. Imagine them inside that cave. Three guys, seven guys tops. Teenagers.

00:42:30--> 00:42:40

Sound asleep. Allah subhanaw taala having to move around all day and all night so that they don't lose whatever muscle mass they have and they don't die from disease.

00:42:41--> 00:42:52

And the dog were at the beginning of the scared motorway. No one answers naturally ceaselessly. Imagine how it looks Imagine how awkward it is and how weird it is. How scary it would be if you were to run into them in the night one day.

00:42:53--> 00:43:03

And then Allah subhanaw taala had to wake up. Now I always asked why would they wake up? What's the point of them waking up?

00:43:04--> 00:43:27

Right Why is this happening? What was the point of the story? The Allah subhanaw taala put them to sleep. Why did they wake up? And another thing is if they're going to wake up why are they going to die almost immediately later, and we look at the story they're gonna die almost like a couple of hours after they woke up. Why is it that's a lot of trouble to go through a lot of trouble to keep them alive asleep for 300 years in the wake them up for three hours and then die.

00:43:28--> 00:43:37

We think about it. What's the point of that? Like it's gonna wake up let the loop have wives and families end up talking about No, no, they wake up okay, die. We had to wait.

00:43:38--> 00:43:47

Why? Okay, now you can just like that we resurrected them. And we gave them like, the FSL lubega home so they could talk amongst each other and question what went on?

00:43:48--> 00:43:55

That we want them to be a bit confused. This is a good confusion though. I was out I wanted to put the mistake confusion but but it's a good one.

00:43:56--> 00:44:01

It's for a good reason. You have the right to ask each other how to how

00:44:03--> 00:44:05

to use like a suit for 300 years, right?

00:44:07--> 00:44:41

They're not gonna that's not something they accept as a fact. Of course not. Maybe maybe we're so tired. We've been working so hard for so long. So scared, so much discussion, so much thought and strategizing that you know, we'd be stuck for 24 hours maybe? Yeah, woman maybe 12 hours, maybe badly and maybe maybe 18 hours or 20 hours? I don't know. Let me know what might help out a little, maybe a whole day, maybe a day and a half. I don't know. He They looked at each other and we look we look at our fingernails and mess up and sleeping for a long time. But then would you think about how long you slept that you woke up in a different reality. You understand what 300 years is?

00:44:42--> 00:44:46

There thought about that? Well, I think the first thing is important. This is 2017

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

What is 300 years ago, my family just got to this country. So it would be 1717 Basically, right? That pre understand what the world looked like.

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

In 1717 I dare you to go look it up. Let's look at the 18th century. Yeah, you would. Yeah, that's impossible. Imagine someone who slept in 1717 woke up today.

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

Right? Would you be able to cope

00:45:16--> 00:45:32

with that person to be able to live it to function normally possible too many too much change is too much for one psyche to do too much to process he can no, what are you talking about? We have phones. Yes, even though TriCity is

00:45:35--> 00:45:40

he's never seen a car before. Right. The last thing here versus a horse and you know,

00:45:42--> 00:45:52

maybe I don't know if 7017 were there. No guns, and maybe there were guns? Maybe? Start at that time? Yeah, now there was Jonnie. eficiente. Columbus

00:45:53--> 00:45:58

explained him no one note we've we've moved forward from guns now the bomb places just

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

now is just button. Let me just take off complete parts of the world. The Internet? Oh, that's gonna be a problem. The Internet? What is the 300 years 300 years? How many generations a few 100 years?

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

Seven generations, six, seven generations.

00:46:18--> 00:46:31

So imagine that Nigel and your son, your grandson, then your great grandson, then your great, great, great grandson, then you're great. Then I just need somebody you don't care about. I don't care about that person. Yeah.

00:46:32--> 00:46:57

I don't even want to meet him. Like just don't bring him to me. Like, I remember there was a story of a guy in Peru who lived apparently on his birth certificate. He lived in 243 years old. That just didn't really look it up. And so it's a world record. And I just read about it. And it was interesting. And apparently he carried like is his fourth fifth generation grandson. And apparently he was to tell people to stop bringing these kids to me.

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

He told them like I don't want to see them anymore. I don't care like

00:47:02--> 00:47:08

leave them away. It's not important to us. I took care of my kids my grandkids maybe my great grandkids I played with them because

00:47:10--> 00:47:14

you do your thing is live your life. So six, seven generations later, that's

00:47:16--> 00:47:46

how much you're gonna wake so you got to do but they were confused because to them. One time it looked different. They weren't sure they confusing. That's why they ask because you never get up do you wake up normally as they hold on they sleep and they have no you never do that? Of course we have clocks today but even if you didn't have a clock or a watch, you wouldn't wake up and think that you slept for 24 hours or 36 hours you would wake up thinking you slept in normal sleep seven to 12 hours if your teenager maybe 15 tops but that's pretty much it. But they asked how much you asleep was it a day was a day and a half?

00:47:48--> 00:47:55

What was it having a was because they felt like this feels weird. We look what's going on? I don't know I don't know what we're starving that's what I can tell you.

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

Now Yeoman Oh Valley Oh boy. I know what

00:48:00--> 00:48:43

it is to your Lord knows best how long you slept for you don't have to. Doesn't matter what we need to do with me to eat. I can eat a horse right now. Oh guys. I had that boom. Really come handy. Take the silver that you had the silver that you have in money the currency send someone who sent one of you one of us needs to go either media to the city for young children and take a look at you as a scalper. Well, I love that part of the sewer. I love it because it shows you what type of people these guys were. So not don't go to McDonald's or Wendy's please look for as galpharm look for the best food. The most halal food as a means the more pure does get or does that is the concept of

00:48:43--> 00:49:15

purification. That's what he said. When we talked about giving the customer your money you're purifying your money from how long does this give you the concept of Ischia in Islam and in the Quran is purifying one's heart and one soul. So as a scalper Am I the most pure of food because there's a lot of hot on foods even back then they were slaughtering for idols and they were slaughtering incorrectly and the food was unhealthy wasn't good. I want a scalp on them. I want the food that is the most Hello the best food you can find. But younger, let me make sure that the person who is going looks at searches for his Galvano

00:49:16--> 00:49:50

understanding now, when you guys asked me about is it okay to eat at Harvey's and Wendy's and I can tell you you can eat it like Jim who will tell you to eat the alakija by understanding how they thought you're saying the difference now, between these guys and us. See what they're interested in is obeying Allah Subhanallah and everything that they did. That was an interest. I want to make sure I'm doing I'm eating the best food. I'm doing the best deeds I'm speaking to the best people. I don't want to just do whatever the shields will telling me it's okay to do I want a bigger shift for a federal please let me say it's okay that I can eat this garbage so I can eat garbage and let's go

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

eat garbage. Why eat rubber? You want to make garbage go good. Fine. If that's what you want to, you know, put into your system then that's gonna come out of your system as well.

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

It is garbage in garbage out I'm sorry I mean it's as simple as that. But the AU has a scalpel and I love that that shows you it's showing us the mentality of these young guys who

00:50:11--> 00:50:21

were hungry over starving but these look for the best food halal food the pure food who that Allah subhanaw taala you know wants us to eat healthy food that will help us so please do that

00:50:23--> 00:50:37

but younger Are you has gone well yeah pecan berries can men who may he bring you some provision from there maybe bring you some Danny a certain portion from that. But yet people don't bring you risk and manure provision committees. Well, yeah.

00:50:38--> 00:51:21

That's from looks, looks to be very, to be undetectable. And also, he's the one who works in ways that are you cannot detect the needs and the plugins he knows what is undetectable and he works in ways that are undetectable that you don't know that find out for a lot of very, very discreet make sure no one detects what he's doing. But when you share one that people make make you make sure that no one feels your presence you should do is to make someone feel presence be compared to anyone because nobody can have anyone find out that we're here if they find the person then you know they're gonna beat him to a pulp and he's gonna have to tell them where we are and then they're all

00:51:21--> 00:51:36

gonna go because our strategy is going to be different right we're talking about how we're going to do this again more discussion is going to be more focused we're going to find different right now we have to eat because this is hunger is just insane so we need to eat someone go make us food, but make sure you don't let anyone find make sure no one's easy

00:51:37--> 00:51:43

think about this girl this is the thing they thought about these are the type of people we're talking about this is why the less

00:51:44--> 00:51:50

laws or the three day job in E yo Hello

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


00:51:57--> 00:52:01

we already do who see me let's see him

00:52:06--> 00:52:11

then to flee who he then at the

00:52:16--> 00:52:45

in the home indeed if the yellow icon if they find you if you are drawn towards where you are and it's apparent to them where you are you're Jumoke and they will stone you to death oh you are you do comfy millesimal They were they will force you back into whatever way of life that they have when to flee Oh hidden under there and if that happens then you will not achieve your goals ever meaning our whole mission what it is we're standing for will go away will die off it won't work out

00:52:46--> 00:52:51

now the Iran after it jumps to when they were found dead

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

right so that was left up this part

00:52:56--> 00:53:01

after that we're going to be it's going to jump to the point where people find what happens

00:53:02--> 00:53:26

as part of the old so he goes starting takes his you know the currency of the time when he goes down to the city. He's looking for food but he's walking around like where my last Where's you know? Where's Peter? Peter? What is this new place here? I don't know what this is. I have no idea what it is no but whatever. I'm hungry, she walks in Okay, give me a couple of sandwiches or something. Give me this looks good

00:53:27--> 00:53:31

to me, and then he pays pays the money

00:53:32--> 00:53:34

the guy looks at the money

00:53:35--> 00:54:12

where do you get this is not like I've never seen this currency before you're given that he was given actually a piece of currency that this person's never seen before. Like what is this looks at it and he turns it around and has noticed this guy need but face on the other side, which is you know, the the currency at that time. Now this guy as far as the, you know, shorter man who was selling this guy died 100 years ago. They're living in a post capitalist era. You see this guy was the dictator of the old ages. This is the guy who forced people into blue theism and killed many people. Now the shorter man who was standing there, he lives in a time of belief and unique

00:54:12--> 00:54:42

exception of the Oneness of Allah Subhan he lives in a in a faithful community and faithful time where the rulers support belief in Allah subhanaw dentro supports proper faith and yes freedom and he believes in Allah subhana wa Tada so to him things are so when he told them I need for those lucky halal, you like what do you of course, what do you think it was gonna It's all head out here my friend but I'll find you when I find a way like y'all you know doesn't make any sense. You don't walk into All Muslims have them say is your food.

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

Sounds very weird if you're gonna say that, but you'll answer and say yes, anyway, so to him the question that he was asked was weird. Why are you asking me this? Of course it is. Now it looks at this money where the engineers get this wrong. This is an antique this was like worth like millions and millions of whatever today's currency is you

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

It's like you find a treasure somewhere, like a treasure. What? Seriously? Where do you get this wrong? He's just calling on people's like, No, dude, draw any attention to me here, whatever you want to know that I have to find this out. He's calling on a police officer the show like, no, no, no, no, don't don't do that. And he gets very scared. He leaves the food. By the time this man is no questioning, what is this?

00:55:24--> 00:55:32

Because they knew that, that currency doesn't exist anymore. And those who have it either found a treasure, or

00:55:34--> 00:55:58

stumbled over something or stole something. So this guy was a trustworthy, straightforward, former guy. And like, No, this is not right. There's a story to this, I need to find out, I'm sorry, you can't have this and walk around. I'm not gonna take it from you. Obviously, that's not even right. Because this is worth way more than the five sandwiches I'm going to give you or seven sandwich is worth way more. So hold on. So he's just doing what he does normally, because he doesn't know that this guy just woke up from a few 100 years slumber.

00:56:00--> 00:56:08

He calls upon people this young man feels like No, no, you're drawing attention. They told me I can't draw attention, he gets very scared that this doesn't work. So he leaves.

00:56:09--> 00:56:11

He leaves. But as he's leaving,

00:56:12--> 00:56:40

they see him this, they follow Him because what they just saw was very awkward. So they start following him and following him. And he's running up the mountain and they're running after him. And of course, he's extremely scared that you're gonna get killed because he still thinks that the time of diagnosis doesn't know doesn't know that things have changed completely and significantly fundamentally. So he's running and people coming up into whatever you need. Just explain to us where you got this from. And it does tell you the value of this and if you don't get the founder then good for you. And you're saying the difference of how perspective of how they're

00:56:42--> 00:56:44

comprehending the the situation.

00:56:48--> 00:56:49


00:56:52--> 00:57:09

turning points back to the key with no ability to go down and go back doesn't know why it's very confusing. For the people who are interacting with him have no reason to, they're not trying to kill anyone. This is a very awkward situation, they want to understand more detail. So they so they follow him. He enters into the

00:57:11--> 00:57:13

into the cave. So these people follow him and

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

and they talk about it.

00:57:18--> 00:57:34

They get scared, you're gonna kill us don't kill us. We're not this could be why would be killing who are you? And they talk, I'm pretty sure they talked for a good hour and a half. Because in order for you to come to terms of what just happened, it's going to take a lot of minerals. What who are you? And it gives me

00:57:36--> 00:57:47

I have like a great great grandfather with that name. right neighbor? Might come my great grandfather's cousin was that neighbor. That's the name of the people. What are you talking about? These are the guys.

00:57:49--> 00:58:01

Are you joking with us? Where are you and then he sells his name and, and they talk back and forth. And then slowly, both parties are coming to conclusion the client jumps over this. I just leave that for our own imagination then jumps to the tower.

00:58:03--> 00:58:07

And slowly both parties are starting to understand what happened.

00:58:09--> 00:58:16

That understood loud. The 300 year post our time. And Moses did.

00:58:17--> 00:58:30

Everyone who's Muslim Now everyone believes in Allah. Apparently the reason that they do believe that there's no point of the story is them. Apparently, after they went into that cave to retreat and talk, and then they went to sleep.

00:58:32--> 00:59:13

People said, Oh, the King killed him. The King killed these great three teenagers who did nothing or 17, who did nothing but teach people educate them, find jobs for them, support them stand by them, they stood for all the beautiful values of our society. And then this guy goes and kills them. He kills them, they became martyrs. And when they became martyrs, so did their ideas. Their ideas as well became martyrs as well. These ideas became a big deal. Why? Because they had a team that was left, they had left the theme. And one of the houses and one of their houses, they don't name it just wasn't in the cave with them in a cake pick it up. People got extremely angry. The public

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

opinion changed within a night against what the king was doing. And suddenly the king didn't have the support of his people anymore. And was talking about he killed teenagers who did nothing but just spread goodnesses because they didn't agree with them on maybe a theological issue or a political issue. He did this. And they were motorized, and so was the way of thought that they carried was motorized as well. And people start to buy into an ask about it. Many people didn't know about them before they were killed. And then there was this big festival these seven guys well they do. Oh, these guys who did this and this and this, what they stand for. So they took the rocking

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

when they looked at it and they read what it is that they stood for. And when they read it, they're like this is beautiful. Why don't we stand for this as well? Why don't we believe this and then a revolution happened and the king was brought down to his knees and he was killed and then Hi

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

Was what spread it. And it's that was the way of thought and

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

because of seven guys,

01:00:07--> 01:00:08

three dudes,

01:00:10--> 01:00:14

they had no idea this was happening, what were they doing when it was when this was happening to sleep,

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

dancing in their sleep back and forth, the sun moving around. So they could, so they could wake up just for a brief moment during time and see with their own eyes, the effect of what they did. If you believe that what you do doesn't matter. If you believe that, the higher that you will try and spread, it doesn't amount to anything that you weren't, then you're mistaken, then you are mistaken. Allah subhanaw taala put them to sleep and woke them up and say you think that you were doing was worth nothing?

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

Look at the effect that you had, you thought maybe you would help a couple of guys, you thought you maybe help a few people who are helpless or uneducated or illiterate or, or poor, right? This whole kingdom changed because of you. Everyone now is Muslim because of you.

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

Just to give them the confusion was good. Why? Because they got the good news. And like we actually.

01:01:07--> 01:01:10

And then before they got the chance to celebrate it.

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

They put their heads down.

01:01:14--> 01:01:32

Now what happened was that people were understood that these are the these are, these are them. These are the ancestors of this whole movement. These are the great people of of history of the Seven Sleepers who changed the way we live here. We have to go and tell everyone so they go back to tell people as they're leaving these guys die.

01:01:34--> 01:01:36

By the time they come back. They passed away.

01:01:38--> 01:01:41

Ironic, it's really ironic. But what's the point?

01:01:42--> 01:02:11

Is he do Hyoni do hair today, do as much stand for something great. And you never know, maybe 300 years down the road, or down the way what you've done, what you've left, a legacy that you love to hire that you spread actually lives up to something that changes the world, you don't know you don't know. Just because it doesn't happen in front of your eyes doesn't matter. That's what you think. You think it's because the higher or the result that you want, the fruit that you're looking for is not going to happen right now, as you can see with your own eyes in this lifetime. I mean, doesn't matter. No.

01:02:12--> 01:02:50

The whole point of them sleeping, because you want to show them you see desirable, okay, you took a stand at a time where very few people have the courage and have the clarity to take that stand. So you took that stand and you met some amounted to something you spread higher. That's all I needed. I didn't need anything else from me, you have any? That's all I need from you, people this is all that is required from you from Allah, His do that. He will bend the laws of physics for you. And then he will change the movement of history for him. He woke them up 200 years later here take a look. Look what you did. Look what who you are right now to these people. You're lucky in that you wrote one

01:02:50--> 01:03:03

day is now in the middle of the of the victory arena, the country where people read it every day. These are Charter of Fundamental what we believe and this is what we do is who we are based on what they wrote based on what they did.

01:03:05--> 01:03:23

And of course, no there's no point at them continue to continue to live. They already didn't done their part. Allah Subhan just wanted to give them that good news. Why is it tell us the story of it, you see how easy it is? I can put them to sleep and wake them up. It'd be totally confused. I have no idea what to do. Don't be scared and go do stupid stuff and weird things and you're gonna find out wow.

01:03:24--> 01:03:43

My few weeks, my few months, my few years of, of sacrifice, of effort, putting in my time and my emotion and my and my money and my wealth and my use and to try and do something higher led to this led to complete Kingdom changing its fate forever and ever. Allah.

01:03:45--> 01:04:16

Now go to sleep again. But this time for good. Cause I just want to show you understand why the whole the whole, the whole idea of them sleeping, you see the story could have been much simpler. They could have been actually killed by the king. And then people would have done the same thing right? They could have been killed by the king actually and then the same thing would have happened. But no, the whole story here is different for you. You if you think that what you do doesn't matter. If you think that you're too insignificant or too young or too small in this world or you don't matter anymore you don't have enough knowledge you don't know the throng you're misunderstanding

01:04:16--> 01:04:50

this whole thing and you think that Allah Allah will not change things for you He will change everything for you. Just do your part just to your parts. Because they may have thought that for a moment, maybe this is what I think is my theory. I may be wrong here. My theory is maybe as they were coming up with their plan that night there was a moment of doubt that maybe what we're doing is not going to end up anywhere anywhere we're doing this for the sake of Allah may Allah accept from us but maybe what we're doing is just not going it's nothing's gonna change yeah, they might feel that way because the investment everything they're exactly life into it and it got worse nothing

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

happens from them. It's Wait Yeah, and it got worse now they're gonna get killed to start things worse now they're going to not know they're gonna be killed. So maybe for a moment one of them said to themselves

01:05:00--> 01:05:21

There's nothing I've been talking about. Nothing we can do to fix this society can fix this but nothing we can do. Not not an objection to Allah subhanaw taala just a moment of weakness, just a human doubt, doesn't look like anything's changing. We've tried so hard and so Allah subhanaw says that's what you think. You think what you do doesn't matter, you think nothing can change. You think that's what you think sleep.

01:05:23--> 01:05:47

Now wake up and look wake up and find out how your hair is your fire circulates 360 degrees, you send it out to the universe and then it keeps on moving and bouncing from one place to the other and we'll come full circle back to you again. The more you send out the more comes back to you the more you send out the more it comes back. Simple as that never dies unlimited it does not fade away it doesn't get hurt

01:05:48--> 01:05:53

once it's there it's there you put up here you live on live on forever

01:05:54--> 01:06:10

seven guys change the whole kingdom as the only reason Allah Subhanallah woke them up as far as they are concerned as far as the only the people who are going to deal with them is concerned it's a different it's a different concept inshallah we will read

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

we will just be one more

01:06:16--> 01:06:21

look at ourselves now only he learned

01:06:22--> 01:06:24

the law he helped

01:06:33--> 01:06:34


01:06:36--> 01:06:39

way better be easier than is

01:06:41--> 01:06:42


01:06:48--> 01:06:51

easier than their own owner that you know I'm

01:06:57--> 01:06:58


01:06:59--> 01:07:00


01:07:08--> 01:07:09

we'll be him

01:07:12--> 01:07:14

Paul Larina

01:07:16--> 01:07:17

Emery him

01:07:23--> 01:07:27

Cassie then Eileen. Miss Geeta

01:07:32--> 01:08:04

woke up they got to see the effect and the impact of what they did Allah subhanaw taala showed it to their own eyes. So there's no one ever again after these people ever doubt the effect and impact that he could have with the good deeds viewership you could have with the good deeds that they do in their lives, as taking a stand is always worth taking a stand and doing what is right and standing for what means it's always worth it. And do not worry about the impact. Do not worry about what's happening right now. Do what you know is right and Allah subhanaw taala just like you take care of that will take care of you. And He will take care of what you want to happen. Just don't worry about

01:08:04--> 01:08:19

that part. And then they died. Okay, there you go. Just like that I fell in that alley. We allow the people to find them. realize they're not the people to come back and find them and see that they're dead. Leah Alemu. And no, Abdullah, he helped.

01:08:20--> 01:08:27

What is to be benefited from all of this? Yes. Now those people found no, they stood for something. Yes, exactly. So they found out and

01:08:29--> 01:08:57

that the Promise of Allah subhanaw taala was what he promised us the kind of was that you will do your thing, you will do your part. And then he will read success. They need to know that they need to see it. So imagine the discussion that went on. Imagine how many people this is something that changed the way they thought forever and they didn't die, they weren't killed. The stories that we were told by our grandparents and parents that your descendants that was seven people were killed by the king and then they were they weren't even killed.

01:08:59--> 01:09:17

They just slept. He woke up And subhanAllah a whole different narrative now a whole different way of looking at things for them to know and for us to know of course, I know I delight help with the Promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala is true. Is the truth in his righteous oneness. Artillery Buffy the Day of Judgment, there is no doubt

01:09:18--> 01:09:39

there's no doubt that we will all be judged for eating we will all be held accountable for what you do. If you attend as our own amerihome and as they fought amongst each other, as they differed in the in the debate between them this matter what do we do? We don't know what to do a follow up and running goonyella What some people said build a monument on top of

01:09:40--> 01:09:45

Rob boom island will be him their Lord knows best why they woke up because for them it wasn't clear why I think they

01:09:46--> 01:10:00

why did this happen? This is weird. You're living in a time where it's prosperous where the lies that normally bought in the the you know, whenever I'm being those and another collides with evil I mean So there's two ways of deciding an artist vulnerable but

01:10:00--> 01:10:30

I'm going to him they hired the voice to see what is what it is that was going to happen mean the leaders of the of the community at the time volleyball, Allah Emery, it means those who are confused and not sure what it is that the next step should be. Because it's a very confusing situation very unclear, although that definitely then are a mosquito, they said, Take a mystery here, let's build a mystery at this point. And for us to continue to continuously remind them that that is what they did. This is the end of the story about

01:10:32--> 01:10:35

what it is that we're supposed to understand. First of all,

01:10:37--> 01:11:20

that it's always been the youth, it's always been the younger ages. It's always been our sons and daughters and our younger brothers and sisters, who have been able to make the difference in all movements within history, whether Islamically or not, then Allah subhanho wa taala, just like he changed many laws for these individuals, because they took a stand, he will change those same laws and more for you, if you do the same. For you to understand that the higher that you will do, may sometimes not be clear to you within your lifetime, sometimes it will happen a long way down the road. But that does not make it any less significant. It does not make it less important. You still

01:11:20--> 01:11:56

should care. And you still should do your part, that Allah subhanaw taala does not want you to be interested in the intricacies and details of how this is all going to be fixed. Rather, what he wants you to do is come up with a recipe, come up with a with a concept with an idea, know what you stand for, and then work with it. And when the reality changes I want he wants you to retreat again and come up and strategize with something new and keep on working towards your goals. That includes you spreading higher to the best of your ability, and everything else was never your business to begin with. You're not supposed to be worrying about it because Allah subhanaw taala in in his hands

01:11:57--> 01:12:01

Subhanallah with it. This is the point is what we're supposed to learn from others

01:12:02--> 01:12:19

and their story, these young individuals who change the reality of their, of their society of their community of their time, even though they didn't imagine that it was remotely possible. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us all to understand that what was the last thing we talked about when we were talking about the characteristics of the Prophet?

01:12:20--> 01:12:22

Does anyone recall what the last thing I talked about?

01:12:23--> 01:12:33

So I don't remember either. So I'll try to remember the next time at the end of every heartbeat, I will continue talking about the characteristics of the prophets alive. I'm not sure about what it was. Did we ever talked about hedging?

01:12:40--> 01:12:43

Maybe I don't know. But it's all I'll revise and come up with something next year.

01:12:49--> 01:12:49

We'll see you next week.
