Bismillah Nura,

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03


00:00:07 --> 00:00:29

In our last hotbar, two weeks ago, we stopped at dimension of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. On the night of his role, miraj ascending from one Sky One heaven to another to another until he meets Ibrahim alayhis salam. For those of you that have missed that football it is available on

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

Islamic Center of Cambridge's YouTube channel so you can go and look at it, it's their last two weeks ago. So you get to complete the story. If this is the first time you're hearing this, once Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam means Ibrahim Ali Salaam.

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

Then he ascends and he sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Then I ascended

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

until I reached

00:00:56 --> 00:01:49

this place. Sidra, Telemundo. Sidra is a type of a tree buckthorn and English and it has these very, very tasty, edible berries. In the books of history, it has mentioned that there's a place near Philistine. There is Sidra, or this buckthorn tree with its berries that grows. They call it Sidra hedgehog, or hedgehog. That place has the sweetest berries in the world until it is actually mentioned in this interview in the books that if you were to eat those berries, you're the fragrance of those berries is so powerful that any person that walks next to you would be able to actually smell the fragrance had terminal burden. If you eat a lot of them, your sweat will the smell of your

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

sweat will change.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:09

So Sidra Tillman Taha is a tree. And this is as some of the even Abbas has described because it's something so it's unreal and unseen that we can describe even Ibis you tried to explain and he said it's the junction of the two realms.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

So there is this realm

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

that we live in.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

Okay, I'm sure hood we see this.

00:02:19 --> 00:03:07

There's Adam will hype. There's the unseen realm, that unseen realm in this dunya we already have awareness of three different realms, you have Ireland will Arwa where all the rules are. And every single second some rule has transformed, is transferred from here, from that Ireland will Ottawa into the salad and will shoot and from there into BUZZA. So, this transition is happening in front of our eyes, we are all witness to that. Go to the hospital, you see both transitions taking place, the new rule is coming in the room is coming in the new child and this world and then rule is leaving. So these realms exists. But he says all of these realms, whether they are unseen to us,

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

they are all part of this dunya

00:03:10 --> 00:03:15

so Sidra Tillman Taha is the junction, COO Lohmeyer

00:03:17 --> 00:03:21

everything that ascends to the sky from this earth

00:03:22 --> 00:03:40

Yenta he in the industry throttle moonda it's junction ie when it exits this realm of ours, this this world of ours, the point that point is central to the moon to her well cool, lumayan Zaloom yet again, Zulu and everything that descends from the divine realm.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:46

It comes down all the way to the sutra till moonta and it descends.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:53

And its fruit is called Nabek Oh Nabbit Okay shall gelato Nabek Oh Nabbit

00:03:54 --> 00:04:13

which is that that edible bearing but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, so my od Jebi then I was ascended, ie after the seventh heaven all the way to the junction. He's about to enter the realm, the divine realm where Gibreel Alehissalaam says what? That if I crossed this realm.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:27

If I crossed this, I would turn into dust. This is UbD ladies who is Gibreel Ali salaam Prophet Allah Selim says that he saw it as you believe it. He said I'm once two times

00:04:29 --> 00:04:40

in the real form. The who said Tommy Jenner. He has 600 wings. With one tip of the wing, he can take our entire earth and flip it

00:04:41 --> 00:04:56

and he has 600 of those wings Rasulullah saw Him in His original form. And he said I could not see anything on the horizon except Gibreel allihies Sana Gibreel Ali salaam with this strength

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

cannot cross this because he is not allowed

00:05:01 --> 00:05:57

He's not allowed to enter that divine realm. At the point of Sidra Tillman Taha this tree, rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that the know of Allah, the divine light of Allah subhana wa Tada touch Allah. It's as if the switch was turned on. The light was turned on. He said, Then I saw colors and beauty. No human being has the capability to describe what he saw Subhanallah he says, But he described to us a few things. He said this tree Sidra its leaves. This was so huge the tree that the leaves were like Donald Fiala. It was like the ears of the elephant. So you can imagine like it was a big tree. It's got like the leaf is the size and Sidra. Over here, the leaf

00:05:57 --> 00:06:16

are not that big. They're very small. The buckthorn leaves there you see those berries here, either edible berries, you can eat them. Those edible berries, sometimes on tykes and stuff. You see them here to that tree. Those are really small leaves. So you can imagine, like it's a bush, but it's so huge, that the one leaf in it

00:06:17 --> 00:06:20

is like the size of the era of an elephant.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:41

That the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Whenever you go ha, it's never the fruit which is literally if you were to there's different types of Syrah the big ones you can actually how old them it's like almost a little bit smaller than a mango. And they can be actually as small as small berries. Rasul Allah said it was as big as a cola.

00:06:42 --> 00:06:53

Now cola is a is a bowl made out of stone that was a normal thing in the Arab times, which you could hold up 220 liters of water.

00:06:55 --> 00:07:05

So imagine with your visualization, a pot or a vessel that is as big that it can accommodate or you can hold 120 liters of water.

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

Okay, so Paula, is that so it's fruits are as big as this giant vessel.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:24

Then Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, some are already Jabby then I was taken a year rasool Allah ascended further.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

Had until I reached

00:07:29 --> 00:07:29

a point,

00:07:31 --> 00:07:42

a smile I could hear, sorry, Phil o'clock, I could hear the sound that the pens make when you're writing on paper sounds like

00:07:45 --> 00:07:51

that sound, that sound he could hear. And these were special angels of Allah.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:54

Every decree of Allah.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:25

It's written down, and he's able to hear those steady Phil Acklam of the angels that are just there. And all their job is the Kola the decrees of Allah subhanho wa taala, the molecule Moloch, the King of all kings, the master of this universe, the creator of this universe, the master and the creator of every single one of us in the sustainer of every single one of us, the decrees that did send were being documented

00:08:27 --> 00:08:38

by those angels, and then at that moment, Allah subhanaw taala decreed to Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:39 --> 00:09:20

50 Salawat 50 prayers for us, you and I. So, at that moment, rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got that command of Salah, the five daily prayers are the 15th daily prayers at that time when he comes down, and as he is descending. I mean, we're talking like descending remember, between one sky to another sky is a travel of 500 years, like we mentioned all of that. It's just It's just we can't imagine how fast this is taking place. But in the realm, we don't know what is speed and light and how people travel in that realm. But Rasul Allah comes all the way to Musa alayhis salam.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:38

And when it comes to Musa Ali Salam, he is on the sixth heaven. Musa alayhis salam tells him fougere Isla Arabic go back to your go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala I really worked hard with Winnie Surah Al and we only had two in one narration salads and he could not even keep that out.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:59

In Gaumukh, Len Lane Yesterday your organic your nation is not going to be able to pray 50 for Raja and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes back. So manners and after that Allah descended and he said fine, it's 40 Then from 40, it goes to 30 and from 30 to 2020 to 10. Then he goes

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

as backup in Rasul Allah subhanaw taala says it's five. Then Musa Ali Salam says first gen Arabic in Narco Maclean yesterday are with Alec go back your comb is not going to be capable of doing that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, a steam in robic I don't feel good going back. I mean, I feel like you know, there's, there's a moment I feel this, this the shame that I'm gonna go back and ask Allah for a lot more. Like do lesson add more, it's only five. And then he hears the voice where it says it has been decreed for you five, what a jewel comes in, and the reward of 50.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:54

So every Salah that we pray, it's equal to 10 I'll have to be harsh. I'm fairly every hustler that we do and from there is that formula, every deed is equal to 10.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:04

Okay, then Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam takes this decree, and on his way, Djibouti and Allah His Salam takes him on a tour.

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

Now it's the time you've gotten the decree, now we go on a tour. Then he takes him to Jana and Johanna.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:51

He sees Rasul Allah doesn't enter, but he sees those creations of Allah. And he sees imagine if you're up high, you're able to see things. So obviously, He visualized few events that took place in those instance so he saw Jana and we mentioned last time he saw this river, that floor that is flowing, it doesn't have it doesn't have any beds, it doesn't have edges, but on the edges, it's like literally flowing on top of the water. But on the edges are these Pearl domes, like the dome of domestic these Pearl domes that are placed throughout the edge of the river.

00:11:52 --> 00:12:02

And Rasul Allah places his hand and he finds that the Torah of the sand of this water is the most fragrant misc or musket that you can find.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:10

And then Rasul Allah sees in a distance, he sees a castle

00:12:12 --> 00:12:21

with emeralds and rubies. And he asked to bring in what is that? And God Allah Ali Salam says that is Alcocer in ATHLEAN cosa.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:48

Allah has kept that for you. Allah has kept that for you. It's about to lack Allah has hidden that from you. So you will get that when you come back. Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks on the other side. And he sees Jahannam to the left, and he sees people. He sees some of them that their mouths are being cut open

00:12:50 --> 00:12:52

from scissors of fire.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

And he says Who are these people?

00:12:56 --> 00:13:03

And God rallies around and tells them that these are people who are hotel bar. These are people who give sermons.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:08

And they come and say things on the member which they don't follow.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:16

May Allah protect us all. And then Rasul Allah sees others, there are those that are swimming in a pool of blood.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:35

And so many people in various different forms of job, and then each one has a purpose. Again, that's not the point of getting into the details. Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam writes back on the Buraq and comes back to Makkah, when he wakes up in the morning,

00:13:37 --> 00:14:02

remember when we started that Rasul Allah had felt that like, you know, I've done Dawa in Makkah, I want to talk if I've lost the god Allahu anha. I've lost my support Abu Talib, both political support and financial support is taken away. Rasool Allah was in a very low moments in his life. He had belief in Allah but he was in sun. So Allah took him from that lowest moments to the highest MACOM

00:14:04 --> 00:14:15

and that is what Allah does. Whenever you feel in your life that this is the lowest moment you are in the depths of the darkness is that's where you find the best of the pearls only for you to rise back up.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:26

And Rasul Allah comes back to Makkah next morning he tells Abuja Hello, Austria we elaborate in mock this I want to be tell Mark this, they all started laughing.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

They made a mockery out of him.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:46

Right lesson for us, when we talk about morality, when we talk about our religion to others, we are being made mockery of Oh, you're barbaric. 1400 years ago, that's a very ancient religion. We're in 2022.

00:14:48 --> 00:15:00

Right. He was made mockery off. People run to Abu Bakr, he said, Oh, we found it. This friend of yours that used to believe he's all this and that now we

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

Have a case against him. He has truly lost his brain. Have you heard what he said? For calling an Uber? Komaba call? What did he say? He said that you know last night he took a special ride all the way to by telemarketers and then he wanted the skies and came down all of that in the middle of a night.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:26

Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah turns to Abuja Han. And he says

00:15:27 --> 00:15:31

in Allah Ha, if he actually said it, Sada

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

That's truth.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:41

Would you have doesn't understand, he said, okay for you and your you're going to agree how?

00:15:42 --> 00:15:48

And he says, I believe that news comes to him from the seven heavens.

00:15:50 --> 00:16:24

And you think I'm going to deny him in this? Like I believe in a lot more than that. And at that point, lawsuit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they could not believe him. So they all gathered up and ganged up on Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And he said, if your claim is true, then prove it. described to us Masjid Al Aqsa for these are the people that have been on caravans and they have seen Mr. de la casa tell us. So, Rasulullah his memory was pretty good. And he started describing much to the Luxa from his memory, but then he started

00:16:26 --> 00:16:58

making some errors here and there, because the memory was obviously he did not look at it to describe it. And he said as it Azula was describing Allah subhanaw taala brought a virtual sample of Masjid Al Aqsa, visually in front of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Ghana who, as if he was Hoonah, he was at Buster that Aqsa, and by the Ieyasu bit did QA he started describing in details, the windows and the colors, until the Kure stat class stop.

00:16:59 --> 00:17:06

That's way too much detail. For sure you went but then they still walked away and denied the message.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:24

The story of Israel Well, Mirage has a lot of lessons for us. One of the primary lessons is usually when we think that we have lost the battle. When we think that we are at the lowest moments of our lives. That is exactly where you cannot give up hope on Allah.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:46

In the past there MBR had de Aquila Rasulullah Dena Ahmed Omar home materna Sula, when is the *'s going to come on br people who got ye from Allah, it became so difficult they said, When is the help of Allah coming, this is way too much for us.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:53

So the help of ALLAH is Corrib it's very close. We just need to be patient,

00:17:55 --> 00:18:08

and hunker down and follow our faith. Second lesson that we have is the salah that you and I have is a sacred connection. It is the surah El Mirage, it is your ascension.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:32

It is your ascension and your way of escaping this realm and the shackles and the struggles of this dunya while being in this dunya you can make that ascension in Salah. That is why I sought after Salah Hain it was mentioned about him that one of them was shot with an arrow and they had to amputate his leg.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:44

So they said what do we do for God Allah home that only you will suddenly leave me I'll start my salah and when I'm in my salah, you can cut off my leg because I won't be here.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:53

My connection in Salah with Allah is as if my rule has ascended, I am somewhere else I will not feel the pain of that cut.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:21

Well or another Sahabi that was praying. And as he was praying he was supposed to be guarding and people kept shooting arrows at him and his other brother was sleeping as a hobby. And until he finished his salah, and he almost fainted. And as he was fainting, he tapped on the others a hobby that the enemy is here for he told he told him, why did you not wake me up and he said I was enjoying the sewer of way too much than the pain of the arrows.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:29

The surah was way more sweet than the pain that the arrows were hitting me.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:35

So this is an ascension for all of us only if we take it as an ascension.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:53

And the only way we can make this ascension truly worthwhile for all of us is understand that Allah has instilled in every single one of us weakness. So we are not going to be able to make this ascension but Allah wants from you that effort of ascension.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

So you will put in the effort you will try to be conscious you will work hard you're

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

Mind is going to wander off and you're going to come back, it's going to wander off and you're going to come back, it's going to wander off and you're going to come back, you keep doing that, that effort, that rigor is what Allah wants from you. And one day,

00:20:12 --> 00:20:14

believe me one day,

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

Allah will allow that ascension,

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

if you put in enough effort,

00:20:22 --> 00:20:35

and we ask Allah that He grants us that type of Salah at least once in our lifetimes, that we feel that we have ascended, we feel that we have connected, we feel that we don't exist in this realm.

00:20:37 --> 00:21:21

last message for us. And this is, for those of you that know that know, and those of you that don't, this is going to be my last football here, I'm leaving Canada, I'm going to be moving to the States, serving a community over there. And you know, I wanted to take this opportunity for all of you, that have given me that have taken me in as a family member of this masjid, and allowed me to serve you for the little months that Allah gave me tofield it has been a blessed full journey. And again, for me, I have nothing but full appreciation of what is taking place in this Masjid. There's lots that we need to do lots of improvements that need to happen. But as long as we all cohesively sit

00:21:21 --> 00:21:30

together, and my farewell message that I would like to give for everyone is that understand that our enemies they want to divide us,

00:21:31 --> 00:21:57

they want to spew this division within us. So we may have point finger at one person and we made say, you are this person with this sect, and we may mention the name of the sect. But in that pointing we point three fingers at us. But with this hand, Allah has it reminded you that you point one finger to Allah subhanaw taala as a reminder that He is in control of everything, wherever whichever way you point your fingers.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:07

And then we may take names and we might say this person is wt, this person is Sufi, this person is Salafi, they open the name all the names that you can

00:22:09 --> 00:22:53

write, but then we come back and we learn and we understand that from one we learned the effort of going out and striving. But when you go out and strive in Dawa you, you feel dry, so you learn from the others how to do take care of yourself. But when we were going through the process of Ischia, many of our books of task, er were filled with stories and fables that were not authentic. So the brothers from the Salafi faith came and they asked actually cleansed up all of those books. And now we have this purified version of faith. And we learned from all of us, and everyone had to add a little bit to this. So we are a united online despite our divisions and these divisions are to be

00:22:53 --> 00:23:00

celebrated. Not to be to become a source of division with our our communities.

00:23:01 --> 00:23:12

And we ask Allah that Hamdulillah this masjid and the message and the rhetoric that comes out of this Masjid is one of unifying and unity of the ummah. Because we can't stand to be divided.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:19

Just yesterday, I got a call from somebody from this community.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:22

You know, a young girl decided to leave religion.

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

She decided to say hey, have nothing to do with Islam.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

How can we divide?

00:23:33 --> 00:23:37

Where do you go? Which Masjid is she gonna go to?

00:23:38 --> 00:23:52

Right? So these are the things that are pains of our community that we need to take and understand. And my message for those of you that are young adults 35 And above, if you do not get involved in massage, it's Don't blame.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:04

Don't blame it anyone. You have to be involved in the masjid. You have to be part and parcel of these massages and programs. Because if you don't do that,

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

your kids are not coming to the masjid.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:35

If you are not coming to the masjid, or any other masjid for that six, so get involved in the masjid be part and parcel of the programming support as much as you can. Again, Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I didn't know about the company, but I didn't fitna some of you have been created for others a test. So I'm not saying there's not going to be trials and tests and tribulations and there's not going to be arguments and discussions there are but above all of these arguments our purpose trumps it.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:41

So we disagree and we learn to disagree and respectfully separate but never divide.

00:24:44 --> 00:25:00

And we ask Allah that if Allah gives me the trophy, then insha Allah I come back and we're able to connect with one another. I asked from everyone anything that I have done or said from this member or anywhere else or to any of the people in management that may have hurt their feelings that please forgive

00:25:00 --> 00:25:18

Give me we still have the Halacha the Friday night halacha this week and next week that will still carry on. I will be here my last day would be next Friday insha Allah in the evening, the evening and I would love to see all of you there'll be a pull up only ha That was tough for Hola Hola. Hola como Lisa Elon Musk, the main festival over in the whole of Ottawa him.

00:25:32 --> 00:26:13

Smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Mala Nebia Bada and then we ask Allah subhana wa Tada that he truly unites our hearts. We asked Allah subhanaw taala that he removes the filth and all the anger and divide and and bold and Shahina in our hearts and removes it and purifies our hearts from it have ill feelings towards anyone. We ask that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada fills our hearts after being cleansed with the newer of Quran. And with the love and the newer of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask that Allah subhanaw taala grants every single one of us they'll fit to be steadfast on their Iman and we ask that Allah subhanaw taala gives the Abba the father is over here

00:26:13 --> 00:26:53

that will feel to be the true Guardians of the households. And we ask that Allah subhanaw taala gives all the mothers and the sisters that they will feel to be the fortresses that guard their homes. We ask that Allah subhanaw taala elevates all of us this Ramadan and grants us the Tofik to reach the month of Ramadan and accepts from us the Riba that we do now until Ramadan and gives us abundance of dough fit in Ramadan so we can ascend and we ask Allah that let this Ramadan be the best Ramadan of our lives and give us the dough fields to have at least one Salah in which we feel the true ascension. We ask that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sends the salutations on Nabina Muhammad

00:26:53 --> 00:26:58

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while they're early. He was so happy he was telling him to see him and Kathira
