First, the girls as well as the kids that are here Can you Can I have some some of the kids move up air here in front of me to space so we can free up space.

Same thing with the brothers inshallah I see some kids over there. If you feel comfortable with your parents. It's fine. So this announcement is for you guys. So let's move fast.

Before you run out, you know there's going to be ice cream truck parked somewhere in the front. You don't need to pay. It's taken care of hamdullah some brother covered it hamdulillah May Allah bless him for all the kids. And so he arranged a ice cream truck for us for tonight. The only request is when you go there be considerate with that brother just take one ice cream. Don't say one for me one for my sister that is in the house and other for the sister in the masjid and stuff. So just stick to one ice cream for you. All these kids are like, but we have to be completely quiet and
respect the Halacha of the Quran. Can I get that promise from you guys? Awesome. Great. So half an hour so it's 905 from my it's 903 Okay, half an hour just a little bit over half an hour. We all can do that. Okay, all right, great, quick reminder for a dab of the modulus we saw talked about it last time. So while Quran is being recited and explained, right Allah subhanaw taala says first time your ruler who listened to it so that perhaps Allah may be merciful to us. We all want Allah subhanaw taala as mercy so as we go through these verses, I'm going to be reciting some verses today. I want everybody to be conscious and cognitive of that fact only for half an hour
and try to
I can call the truck off.
Okay. All right.
Great. So just added that we're all listening over here quiet if you see somebody else talking hold their hands, tell them be quiet so that you become part of that to insha Allah. The second adverb of this meshless is that you know if you have a disagreement or if you want to say something, feel free to talk to me after the Halacha so after the Halacha I will be here the same thing goes for the sisters and the brothers feel free to come up and talk to me if you want to discuss something or if you want to clarify something like some of the brothers I will be available until certain raesha the third announcement is that we will delay in Russia by 10 minutes. So 1015 we will delay it till 1025
The fourth announcement after Isha Salah last time some of our volunteers were here till 1130 cleaning the place. So if I could ask the brothers and the sisters if they can do a chi in favor that they pray their sunnah as at home so if you guys can start leaving so that the brothers and sisters can start cleaning the place so that it's not a mess for the people who come for Fudger in the morning because we do eat in the same space we do you know everything is at the same space so we want to be able to give that respect to the ones who are giving their time out and I think it's a fair trade for all of us. Actually, we should be praying our soon as in the home anyways. That is
the Sunnah the Sunnah is to pray the Sooners at home but you know as prophets were sent him says do not make your houses like graveyards pray some of your Salas in there right so that's three or four grounds you know some general rules inshallah but now today I'm going to be talking about so last time we talked about some of the goals. We said there are how many how many total kisses Allah has set said in the Quran mentioned in the Quran.
100 How many.
One are an 842 Good 142 The word on Kahoot. We are replacing the projector the so the brother who is supposed to install the projector he cannot do it until eighth of June. So once the projector is up, we will do a collective group of all these three sessions together. You can listen to them on YouTube and then review and Sharla for that next part. Who was the narrator of these stories?
Allah subhanaw taala Excellent. Why so many stories? Yes.
So we can learn lessons for them and we can relate them for our lives. Beautiful. Okay, now last time we talked about some of the goals
Those of you that have missed the lecture, you can go back and listen to it. Today we're going to talk about objectives.
Okay, objectives, what are some of the objectives? Ie how do these stories impact being
on a personal level? Now, in terms of the objectives, there are lots of objectives of these stories.
certain objectives are messages that Allah subhanaw taala wants to give us.
So one of the objectives is Allah wants all of us to walk away with a set of messages that are repeated in every single story 142 times in the Quran.
And those objectives can be boiled down to five, Primary Four to five primary objectives
are either objective is these are the primary messages. Everyone, whether you're small, whether you're old, you should all walk away with these primary messages.
There are other objectives of tarbiyah. Every story has objectives related to how do we change ourselves, objectives of tarbiyah and
the third objective is societies and how does change come about within the societies? Today, we will only have time to talk about the first which is what are the rasa IL? What are the messages that Allah subhanaw taala wants each one of us to walk away because these messages have been mentioned in every single story that Allah has mentioned.
Okay. The first message, the first rissalah the first message that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to walk away with every story is to prove if bottle wine to prove that worry. The revelation is from Allah subhanaw taala.
And whatever comes in the Quran, it was not from Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
How many times in Makkah, when prophets who said I was in Makkah, how many times did he travel outside of Makkah? Who can tell me you raise your hands don't scream?
Raise your hands if you don't? How many times did Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam travel ie left the boundaries of Mac OS and he went somewhere and came back how many times
603 You're close
sha Allah to
the two travels that he did with his uncle
the first time and the second time when he went it was very close to him becoming a prophet and the Rohit boo Hydra he said go back go back if the Jews find out about him they will kill him
all the kids that are here ice cream
at least have some stick that works. Okay, attention over here. Look at me. Yes, you my own son has been the one with sunglasses. Turn around.
I can see you without the Gospels.
Okay, good. So, the first message that Allah wants us to know this this these stories. That prophecy is that I'm only left twice before he became an abbey. How does he know the stories of all the money is thrown in.
And that is why Allah subhanaw taala in every single time and he Rasul Allah is telling the story Allah says, not known Elkins so Alagiah
accidental causes great, we are the ones who are narrating to you this best of the stories.
Be Mao hyena elago hudl Quran. This is a warning from you. In other time, Allah subhanaw taala he says what Walmart can tell him, you are not with them. You are not present at that time.
When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this ye II when Allah is mentioning about that every single time the stories are being mentioned those stories Allah subhanaw taala talks about this. That Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam you were not present at the time when these stories took place. While I'm I couldn't Tabby Janee Vela Herbie Musa Ali salaam story. Allah says this three
At times, you are not on the eastern western side. Then the next I Allah subhanho wa Taala says Why am I contessa we and you are not there next I want my goon Tabby Janowicz to you are not there at the time by the mountain side of tool. Then Allah subhanaw taala says Zaarly coming, invade, these are the stories of unseen that we are giving you giving it to you. All of these and many other verses tell us that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this this consortium of brothers need to be
123 Great, well I'm I can tell at the hem all of these tell us that profits are seldom did not make these stories. And this leads me to a point for the university and older kids over here, that the orientalist
their primary purpose in all the research is to negate ye.
What do they say oh, Prophet didn't get any revelations. These are just inspirations.
As a huge difference between an inspiration and a Revelation.
Revelation is something that came
from above seven heavens. It's not from this earth. It's from the Creator. But inspiration.
in spirit, sorry, but revel inspiration can be from a person from experiences from education from reading a book, we can have inspiration from so many things.
So that's the first message that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to walk away from the second message.
First message that all of these stories are from Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, and Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was not present at that point. So how is he telling you all of these stories, because Allah is inspiring them? Allah is sorry, giving revelation to prophets, Allah Salem with these things. Next part, point number two.
All of the MBR all of the messengers that came prior they all had one religion.
They all had one religion.
And that religion was a de noir hide the religion was one.
Why must the root Dean wha hide? The source of the religion was one which is from Allah subhanaw taala.
And all of them are Alma tournois. Ada, they are all brothers with one unified religion.
Where do we find that?
We find that throughout the Quran multiple times. Allah subhanaw taala says
that when revelations come down all of these revelations of all of the MBR they had two primary messages. One message was o'clock characters and that is why we have the series on Tuesday, a classical Qurani Quranic character, but previous books also talked about character. For example, Welaka Artina, Ibrahim Rocha, whom in Kabul, Ibrahim Ali Salam was given this ability to decipher between right and wrong, well look at it, you know, Musa Harun Al Furqan, Musa and Harun Ali salaam are given that deciphering the criterion. What do ya and and there was light new guidance was it Crawley tapping
and it was a reminder and remembrance for those who adopted the car from the time of Mussolini Senna.
Whoa hyena let him fit in that hierarchy Allah subhanaw taala says we sent worry to them the messengers to do good deeds, very little hierarchy. We are told to do Hey right we're told we are required in Sharia to do good.
While you're calm is Salah, establishing prayer. All of them were told to establish prayers.
All of them in the past.
What eata is that God to give zakat again common moral ground?
Well, we'll turn it on to you now Hawkman noir Elena, loot Elisa was given knowledge and wisdom. So, if you keep on reading, the second purpose these wahi these all these messages, the two primary purposes to build morality
into the society was one every message reiterated that primary message and different forms and different needs of the hour.
is all of them called for a unification of the heathen Aqeedah.
Allah subhanaw taala he says
Nakazato cell nano
Elon told me he forgot what did he say? Yeah call me
or a Buddha Allah. Worship Allah subhana wa Tada. What ILA I didn't go home Huda and to add it to the people of Idaho home road who the their brother was who die either messenger was hood Jaco Merimbula Malcolm in Isla hint or people worship Allah Oh my own worship Allah.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, What ILA mediana for whom shall I EBA towards Medion a home sure Eva there brother I either messenger what's Schreib? God Iock O'Meara boredom La da
all my home worship Allah.
My Allah coulomb, in Isla in law Euro, there is no other law other than Allah. So that tells us the unification of towhead and morality both came and all of them were one in this message. If you read the Quran and all the stories, this is a very clear message throughout every single story.
So, I'll ILA who our head
our the one we worshipped and they worshipped is one, allow the reader to Wahida they're at either our Arcada all of the Ambia one of the dogs
while Ambia own mutton Wahida all of the messengers were one OMA
and they were all Muslims. What Dino? I hate. The way to live life was one.
The moral code because Allah's moral code doesn't change from time to time.
Allah is not reforming how SHA this concept that we have is like Oh, Islam was the perfection of all known
Are you telling that the previous Dean are imperfect? No, Allah's moral code is absolute alarm on who you have his elements absolute.
So but the Sharia was revealed on the requirements of that time, and the law that was required for that people at that moment in that time?
Next, you have 10 minutes left
10 minutes, who wants ice cream?
Can I get 123 All of you to come here in the front.
123 Come, come, come come in the front. Come on, get get I'm gonna
come come here in the front. And there's a space on the side too. So two on the side and two on the side.
Has an you're on the side. And you're on the side. And you can sit here, right here. Good. I got my eyes on you guys. Looking at you. Next.
The next part point number three.
All the ways that these MBR and these people in the past when they conveyed l wasa IL The means that they use to convey the message and the problems that the face when those message that message was delivered was also one.
So what we face today as Muslims, when we face what we face today as Muslims is not something new.
It's not something new. The people in the past when the message came, the way they reacted, the way they applauded the attacks they did all of those things have happened in the past. Nothing is new today.
So when we go back and read those stories, it inspires us because oh, they people went through that again. Oh, we're going through the similar thing.
So there is no difference in now.
so some of the verses about that. Allah subhanaw taala says welcome. I mean, being
how many of the NABI they came, kata Lama who ribbing you? How many of the people who were devotees to Deen they fought with them. Tesira they fought a lot from our hand. No, they did not get tired and got weak with the fight against the bottle. The fight against that which is falsehood. They didn't
get tired of that.
We can't get tired. When we fight against immorality. We can't say oh, boy toga got too tired now.
Allah is saying from our handle, they didn't get tired.
We have no excuse.
Next, Allah subhanaw taala says, well Kadar Lika This is the verse we recited in our football today. Well Can it can Jai nadie Kulina be in every Nabil had an enemy from where I do one Shayateen a linseed oil gin, they were shaytaan as enemies from insaan and from gin every nobody had that. Today we don't have the MBR but we have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his message people are enemies of that message.
Unify unified Nothing is new.
So when we read these stories are like oh my god, this is something this is happening to us. Yeah. It's supposed to happen to us.
Because this is how people have reacted to the message of God in the past the message of Allah in the past
Next, we'll come out of salami nubby in fill a whirling Wehmeyer de him in Albion Illa cannot be here yesterday own how many of MBI have come in the past whenever they would come with a message
the mock to them
aren't we being locked as Muslims
and ask you to get up please getting better

messengers came with clear signs for Rod do idea homie fee?
Oh my god. This is the message. Allah is saying for rock do idea homie that for him? When they heard the message. They're like, Oh my god, this is the message. How is that even possible? This is 2022 2023. Come on. We're living in an advanced world. How can this be true?
Same thing happened in the past. So when we are going to go through these stories, we're going to have these unified Messages.
Next, point number four, my promise is about to come to an end. Okay, point number four.
Every single story that we're going to hear, either in the beginning of that story or towards the end of the story, there will be an absolute message. There'll be an absolute message of one thing.
Which is that if you are a believer, glad tidings for you.
But if you choose not to believe, if you choose not to believe, then there are warnings for you in those stories. Every story promotes this one message, which is
that Allah promises those who follow the message, but Rama Allah is going to be merciful for those who follow the message. But if you choose not to follow the message, if you decide that you're not going to follow the message, then there are absolute warnings for every single one. Be careful Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to punish
for example, Allah says not anybody tell my observance and my people. I need another photo Rahim. I am i e Allah indeed. I am the Most Merciful
and the Most forgiving.
For the Most Forgiving and most Merciful.
What's right after that?
the one where the glasses
Now we're gonna sit here
and you're the king.
Okay, and you can't get off.
Next part. Nabil Abadi, Allah subhanaw taala says, Tell my servants, tell my servants I
I'm the one who's going to forgive him the most merciful what's after that? What NRI Dobby?
Who was double Alene and my punishment is the most painful punishment.
So every story as it ends,
it will have a summary of this warning.
Okay, who's going to repeat the four points to me?
You will Mashallah. Oh you have a lot of courage bro.
and she will to I guess
hamdulillah who's going to repeat point number one? Yes.
Are you just raising their hands? Okay. All right. Is the food here?
The whole, the kids are not going to wait.
935 Okay, what's point number one?
Come on, guys. Yes.
The point is that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us these stories, and he has no way of knowing all of this. And that proves to us that these stories are from Allah subhanaw taala. Point number one. Point number two. Yes.
You got to speak louder than than I can hear you.
Don't talk to the book, talk to me.
Look at me. Look at me. Okay.
Okay, all of the MBR they came with the same message.
And all of their message of morality and towhid are one.
Point number three. Somebody else from the brothers?
They all had enemies.
What clothes guy had they did but what was your What was unique about their enemies? Yeah.
Whatever happened to them is going to happen to us.
Think about that whatever happened to them is going to happen to us. The slope, the ways how enemies plot against Islam has not changed.
And that's why these stories codify to you, they will mock you.
They will show astonishment. Oh my God. Is that true? Wow, that's very barbaric.
And how the messengers they reacted to their attacks was also unified.
Some of them they never got tired, some of them they made dua to Allah subhanaw taala. Some of them they gave hope in another ayah Allah subhanaw taala says had dipolar Rasulullah levena Norma home,
Mata, Nasrallah, the messengers and those that were believing in the messengers they said, Oh Allah, when is the help coming? They are almost at the brink of giving up.
These are messengers they're getting divine why he so the messengers and the way they reacted to the sloth onslaught and the attacks and the plots of the enemy he was also unified.
What's number four?
That every person was given
a glad tiding a warning.
So if you look at
anybody who followed these messengers,
they were given a glad tithing that Allah has promised you for Rama and mercy, but
if someone chooses not to follow Allah Subhan what happens if we don't follow Allah subhanaw taala you get punished okay?
Yeah, you will go in hellfire Mashallah.
Anything bad can happen to you? Yeah.
You will have a very bad punishment
you got to speak louder.
The punishment will be painful.
Okay, what happens when we obey Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, you get reward.
Allah might test you but you will still get rewarded.
Allah will protect you Masha Allah. Yes.
in the garden
Oh, you'll go to a Jana Allah will give you a castle and then that castle the fruits will come to you.
We'll keep you safe. Yes. Yes. What do you want to say?
you get lots of good deeds. Kate. Yes.
What's the greatest reward Allah is going to give us? Yeah.
Yes, speak up. Put your hand you put your hand up knowing the green shirt, you put your hand up, you're on the spot.
That's the greatest reward, He will protect you.
Okay, somebody from here? What's the greatest route? Yes.
You get to see Allah subhana wa Tada and Jana
know, the greatest reward on the Day of Judgment who created you know, Allah subhanaw taala? How could you see him? That's a really good question. So in Jana, you want to know the story, which I want I want silence then I'll tell you the story. You want to know how are we going to see Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, so the way this works, is in Jannah insha Allah make dua that Allah subhanaw taala enters all of us in Jannah without any hisab in sha Allah, and we are from the 70,000 people that enter Jannah without hijab, so we go straight into gender, right.
When you enter Jannah
everyone ready here. When you enter Jana, every person will be given everything they want in Jana. Okay. Then when you're in Jana, there is an angel that is going to come. And that angel is going to make an announcement. What's the announcement, the angel is going to say we all have an appointment with Allah.
So all the people of Jannah
will now head towards a place
where everyone will be gathered. The first circle is going to be all the prophets, the leader of them is going to be w Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then the next circle, the next circle, the next circle, some are going to be on these members that are going to be so high that everybody could see them. Oh, look at that person. Look at that person. Look at that person, why is he so high?
the angel is going to say
today you have an appointment with Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to descend in a way that befits His Majesty. And when he is going to be there, he is covered with a veil. Nobody sees Allah subhanaw taala.
And Allah is going to ask, are you all happy with what I have given you as a reward of being a good Muslim?
And everybody is going to say, one of the girls like,
Yeah, I'm sure in sha Allah, we get to say this to Allah smart, like, Yeah, I'm super happy, right? We're all going to say, oh, Allah, you saved us from hellfire.
And you elevated our ranks, and you enter the US in Jannah. What else could we ask for?
And then Allah subhanho wa taala. He says to the angels, lift the veil, between me and my servants.
And that is the day we're going to
see Allah subhanho wa Taala in His original form for the first time.
And Allah has concealed that until that day.
Imagine if you did not know who your father was. You did not know who your mother was.
Right? You don't know words. Imagine what you're going to feel. And now think about it that Allah is the One who has created all of us.
What bigger deprivation a person can have. How big of a loser is going to be that person that he never gets to meet his own creator.
So we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he enters all of us into Jana
and gives us the true understanding of his Deen in sha Allah and we're able to truly truly connect with the message of the Quran.
Yes, I know your hand is really burning. So go ahead.
It's a fact Tell me a fact.
Tell me a fact.
That's that's a different story. So yeah, that's, that's a story but I'll come to you. Yes. So a person is going to be facing hellfire and he's going to ask Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah, I will listen to everything that you asked me to just turn me. Turn me away from hellfire, just aka Lucker Baraka
