The topic of today is the topic of lmsc had the journal.
And the journal is something which there is a lot of facts about and there is also a lot of fiction about.
And because many people don't know about the reality of the job, they haven't studied that the job. They don't know anything concerning that the job. Many people have a lot of false notions. And because of this many people make many mistakes and sometimes grave mistakes with regards to the job. And I will give you a simple example of this.
When I was studying in Islamic University in Medina, one year, a group of us we went for lunch.
And once we were in the harem, I can remember I think we were on the roof of the harem. And if you ever been to like the masjid al Haram, when you go to the roof, one of the most beautiful things that you can do is look down. And you see
the footpath, the place where people are making dough off there in their home and they make it off. And it's one of the most beautiful sites in the world. So we were looking down and you were making this fall off.
And then there was a skirmish down there. So because we were so high, we couldn't really tell what was going on. But there was a skirmish. And so we could tell that the police officers came running in and there was some like shouting and screaming. And there was some problem down below. So we couldn't really tell what was going on. But after we finished from the Harmon as we were coming out, we saw some police officers. So we asked him, he said, you know what was going on? What was the problem there? There seemed to be some difficulty. So they replied,
that basically there was a man who was making power.
And all of a sudden, he's in front, he's making power. All of a sudden, he sees someone else also making power also in Iran. And he goes and he begins to attack him. Now he had something sharp with him some kind of a weapon. And he began to stab him and slice him. And you just went and attacked him. So when the people saw this, they obviously started shouting and screaming, and they pulled him away. And as they were pulling him away, one of the things that he said, was that this man, leave me alone, this man is at the job, let me kill him.
And this is like, you know, in high drama, people are making tough, they're in a ROM by the karma. And he shouting this and he's trying to stab and kill this man. So this from the outset shows that when we don't know about the job, like anything else, when you're ignorant about something, then it will overpower you, overall overtake you. So it is necessary to learn about these aspects of our religion. So that we're better equipped to deal with these situations. Had this man studied about the job, had he learned about the job had he studied his religion, he would have known the reality of the job, what the job can do, what did the Gen Con to where he can go where he can't go, what
will happen to him, what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned concerning him.
And then he would have known, for example, in that situation that there is no way that the job would be in a harem making pull off. This is just something simple. He would have learned our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam over and over again throughout his Sunnah. He mentioned the journey over and over again to highlight its importance. And I will mention to you just a number of these things a number of these are Hadith from them as a single the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam collected and sooner even imager. Muy bien, muy bien, de Vaca Missa borromini.
There is not a single affair, not a single thing. From the time of the creation of Adam. Until the establishment of the hour until Yeoman piano, there is not a single affair which is greater than the jungle
and Subhanallah when we stop and pause and ponder over this hadith reflect over it. How many generations have passed since the time of Adam? How many millennia decades upon decades, centuries upon centuries, 1000s upon 1000s of years have passed, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knows the history of all of the
Prophets, the flood of North, what took place between Abraham and his people. What took place between Moosa and fear around all of the other all of the record all of the punishments that a lot of zoologist sent, yet he still says, from the time of Adam, until Yeoman kiama, the single greatest affair will be the effect of the journal.
Now the journal as we know will be one of the major signs of your mukaiyama he will be one of the major signs that a Yeoman piano is coming. For even so, even so that he is one of the major signs, not just of the opium but from the time of add dimension yomo piano, there is nothing greater than the effect of the junk. And other than that headache, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Sufi Muslim.
He said in the latter, Allah lamea donabedian illa metahuman
that Allah subhanho wa Taala did not send a single messenger, he did not send a single profit, except that he warned his people against the job.
Now imagine this, from the time of other money slam again, we're going right to the beginning of history, going through each and every single profit and messenger subsequently came. Each and every single one of them wounds against the junk.
So Han Allah, they weren't against the junk. They don't want against Judah, George. They don't want against like many of the other signs that will come. They don't want about the majority of things. But one thing they will want each and every single nation about is that the job and this isn't such a Muslim. Again, just showing the gravity of the situation. And another beautiful Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is said that he would teach his companions or the love on him. He would teach his companions, a desire to seek refuge from the jar, just as he would teach them a surah from the Quran. And in some narrations, just as he would teach them Surah Al Fatiha from the
So just as you would teach his companions, how to recite Surah Fatiha, how to pray, how to recite surah to the class. These like soldiers of the Quran are so important. He would also teach them this tomorrow. And it is that they would recite in each and every single prayer. Just as they recite Surah Fatiha in each and every single prayer. They would recite this throughout in each and every single prayer at the Shahada along in the Aruba becoming either be jahannam woman either woman fitna
woman fitna Tomasi
O Allah, I seek refuge in You, from the punishment of Hellfire, and from the punishment of the grave, and from the trials of living and dying, and from the trials of the four things, and the last of them, is the trial of the dungeon. Imagine learning this, there are just as you learn Surah Fatiha. Now think back to our situation. Let's relate it to our present a situation. How many of us even know this to our sons, let alone teaching it to our wives, our families, our children. No one knows this law. Rarely do people People always come up to me when I mentioned this law, and they asked, Where is this? Where did you get it from? Where can I learn it from? They don't know this.
And it's found in the fortress of the Muslim has no Muslim this book that everyone knows of. It's found within this book. It's a very popular common door. But many of us don't know it. We don't memorize it, let alone recite it in each and every single prayer. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching his companions and his oma the importance of the job.
His significance when he comes the trials that he will bring, so he is warning us against the junk and telling us to seek protection and refuge in Allah from the junk. And another Hadith the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, and this is the Hadith that scares me most. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that the jar will not appear until people are neglectful. And the moms forget to mention that the gel upon them and
when the Imams and the scholars and the leaders of the community forget to mention that the jar on the minbar in the gym, a hookah in the elections. This is a sign in and of itself that the gels time is near. He's about to come.
So panela think back. How many times do you hear about the junk? Rarely do we hear lectures on the gym? Rarely is that a football of gym and the jump? And I go like to many cities and I give this lecture and I asked the people when's the last time and most people say never. And some people say yes, like a long time ago. Remember there was a lecture
Maybe like last year sometime is very rare. And this in and of itself is a sign that the gel is coming. Because when the gel comes, He will not just come to meet you and greet you, and be in your company and ask you your name and what you do for a living. He will come with trials and tribulations, he will come to test you, to take you away from Allah to make you worship him instead of Allah. But how can you succeed? If you know about the job, if you know who the gel is, you know his trials, you know how to overcome them, then he won't be successful. So the way he will be successful is that people will know who the judge is, they will know what he will do, they will know
the trials that he will bring. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in yet another beautiful Hadith that too, so ever memorizes the first 10 verses of Surah tolka will be saved from the trials of the jungle.
Now, let us stop here and ponder because I just did a course in October for Muslim Institute on the sea Soraka Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala say that whoever memorizes the first 10 verses of surah two
will be saved from the trials of the jungle. And why is it in another Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommended that we recite Surah Al calf every single Friday? Not just once a year, not just once a month. Not every so often, every single day of your life. You recite surah? Why
not think about the surah
when you think about Soraka Allah azza wa jal mentions loads of stories. Within this year he mentioned the story of the people of the cave. He mentioned the story of the man with the two gardens. He mentioned the story of Musa and feather. He mentions the story of the coronation.
And he mentions one of the major signs of Yeoman piano,
which signed is he mentioned?
This is a question for you. He mentioned George and George at the end of Soraka.
But when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this hadith said that Soraka will bring you protection. Did he say will bring you protection from Georgia? George? No. Did he say he will bring you protection from Johanna No. TV saying we'll bring you protection from the grave and his punishment? No. He said it will bring you protection from the dungeon. Now how many times is that the john mentioned in Surakarta, how many times
how many times?
Not a single time? Not once.
The Georgian majority is mentioned twice.
that the john is not mentioned a single time.
So why then does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say reciting Surah gafe memorizing the first 10 verses of Surah tolka will bring you protection from the jump
and not from you do gem and George are not from anything else? Why?
This is the question that I want you to think about at the beginning. And inshallah as we go along. I will answer this as well.
One of the first things that we need to do before we go into that link, and whatsoever to look at why is it so special? And why is it connected to the junk? Have we ever stopped to think by the way? Why do we have to resize So to recap every single day, every single Friday? Why did the profits on the low while he was send them say Friday? Why not Monday, when not Thursday? Why not Saturday or Sunday? Why every single Friday? And why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that whoever recites Soraka on a Friday, Allah azza wa jal will give him a light from that Friday, until the next Friday. Why? And why is the link between the two between the jar and between sooner?
But first, before we go into all of that, we need to know who the sturgeon is. Where does he come from? Who is he? Where will he come from?
And there are difference of opinions and some narrations regarding this. According to some scholars, he will be an ordinary man. And then on a single night you will transform into the junk,
you will be a normal man. And then a single night Allah azzawajal will will and decree that our transformation will take place and he will become the junk.
And yet there are other narrations were mentioned that there were a number of companions after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who were travelling by the sea and they came across the cave. And within that cave, they met something that called itself that that junk.
So there is varying durations over this, but whether the jail exists or doesn't exist,
Just isn't really such an important matter, because what really matters. And so Pamela You know, when How shall upon comes and he misguides us, he makes us worry about this small issue is that the jail here is you know, here, where is he? Is he in America? Is he in England? Is he in Azerbaijan? Is he in Russia is in China. And we worry about this. This is all we worry about. Here. We don't know what the Jarl will do. We don't know what it looks like. We don't know how to overcome him. But we worried about where he is very exciting, as if we're going to go with an expedition and go and seek him out anyway, as if we're going to go and hunt for him.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will not focus on the small details. Because what's the major thing that we need to know what the journal will do and how we overcome his trials? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned for us so that there's no doubt left in anyone's mind. What the journal looks like his appearance, where he will come from the trials that he will bring, what will happen during his time, how long he will stay for upon the earth, where he will go and where he won't go, and how to overcome his trials. And finally, how he will die. That's what you need to know. That's what you need to concentrate on. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned
that he will come from a land known as for our son, and this land of hora sun historically is a famous land, and it's the land where many scholars came from, such as the famous scholar of Hadith, Abdul leidner Mubarak Rahim Allahu taala. He was from the London for our son, it is said that the jar will appear from this land, and this land is like around Iran and passed around that area.
So he will come from this land. And as soon as he emerges automatically 70,000 people will follow him automatically. As soon as he appears 70,000 people will immediately follow Him and they will become his army. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described him vividly. He didn't just say he is a beast or a big man or a strong man, he described him vividly. So that if me or you ever encounter him, we have no doubt left that this man or this thing is that the judge
so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned
that he will be blind in his right eye, he will be one it is his right I will be blind. And in the place of his I will be something that looks like a protruded grape, a blade that sticks out, this is how his right eye will be. And as for his left eye, even that will not be clear. But rather he will have something that will look like a film over it.
And some of the scholars mentioned and they describe this and they said it's like the skin of a grape. So you know, when you take a great you can peel the skin off. And if you were to look at his skin is transparent, you can kind of see through it, but it's not clear.
So the dial on his right eye he will be blind and his left eye will have something like this film or this skin over it. So even his left eye will not be clear.
This is the first thing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned about him. Then he also mentioned the color of his skin, his complexion and he said that he will be reddish white, this will be his complexion reddish white. And then he mentioned that he will have a prominent forehead. So his forehead will be something which is prominent, it will stick out you will notice it and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that his neck will be wide. And according to some scholars, it will be so wide. It will be as if his head directly fits onto his shoulders.
So Pamela I don't know if you ever seen like bodybuilders, big bodybuilders like Mr. Universe, or Mr. Canada, whatever you guys get here. But if you have these big bodybuilders, they lift so much weight.
And all of these like things that they take that you can't even see then can you move. It says if the head fits directly on to their shoulders, this is how the job will be. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned that his back will be arched and curved. So he will be like a hunchback. His back will be arched and it will become and the Prophet salallahu and he will send them also mentioned that his stance will be wide. He will stand wide apart, he will have a wide stance his feed will be white apart, and the profits on the low wire that he will send them also mentioned his hair and that it will be short and curly, like dreadlocks and he said sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam describing his hair
as if it is the heads of snakes, as if is here will be the heads of snakes. And he also mentioned sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he will be sterile in fertile he will be unable to have
The children and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if this was not sufficient and not enough, he also mentioned that on his forehead, he will have three letters written, that each and every single Muslim will be able to read, whether they are literate or illiterate, educated or educated.
And those three lectures are cafaro disbeliever. So, even though Muslims who cannot read and write, they're illiterate, they are an educated a lot as though God will allow them to read those letters. So, they know that it is that the job so Pamela, sign after sign, description after description, so that you know exactly vividly, what did the jar will look like, how he will appear, how he will come.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned
the time in which you will arrive and appear. And this is very important, because we need to understand the context in which the jar will emerge. Because sometimes, you know, when you say that the jar will just come people think, you know, it's going to be like a nice day, and everyone's going to be in the pub playing, or whatever, you guys do hockey here, and then all of a sudden the jar will come. So how bad can it be? So we need to understand the context. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that three years before the jail emerges three years before the jail comes, Allah azza wa jal will decree that a third of the rain that normally comes stops,
and a third of the vegetation and and produce that comes from the earth will stop. So three years before a third of the rain, a third of the produce will stop. Then two years before that the Jarl comes, two thirds of the rain will stop and two thirds of the vegetation and produce of the earth will stop two thirds so that people are going from hunger to severe hunger, from hardship to hardship, from distress to distress, famine and drought. But it doesn't stop there. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam further mentioned that in the year before that the junk comes out that that last year before he comes out, one year before he arrives, Allah azza wa jal will
decree that there will be no rain and there will be no vegetation or produce nothing. Neither will the heaven give forth a single drop of rain, nor will the earth produce a single grain. So that people will be in famine, drought, they will have no food, they will be in severe hardship. They will be poor, they will be rationing their food and storing it because there is no water and there is no food. And it is at this time that the jar will appear. So hon Allah, how amazing how severe that trial will be. When the people don't have anything. They're as poor as anything can be. They have no food, no water, nothing to live on. Now that the job will come with his trials. As Allah
subhanho wa Taala mentions in Surah Anca booth hassy Vanessa Rocco and Amanda homelife de Lune do the people think that simply because they say Amen, we believe that they will be left alone, that they will be tried, they won't be tested. Wala God paternal levina mean, probably him forever surety. Verily, indeed, we tried those who came before them. Fela lemon Allahu la Vina Sadako Allah Allah Mendel, Cathy been bien and Allah subhanho wa Taala knew those who would be truthful, and those who would be liars.
So do you think that just because we say amen. Now we believe we call ourselves Muslims. We say that we pray, that that's sufficient, nothing else will happen. Allah azza wa jal won't try us won't test us.
If those people who came before us, those nations that have passed those prophets and messengers that passed away, if they will test it and try what makes you think you will be tested and tried, and maybe your test by which Eliza will judge Lars though Jen will judge me and you may be the trial of the judge. So the judge will come at a time of great famine.
And he will come and he will order people to believe in Him, to disbelieve in Allah and to believe in Him as God and to worship him. So he will come by, and he will go across a group of people, a town, a village, a city, a group of people, and He will say to them, believe in me, for I am your God. And the people will refuse. They will say no.
So he will continue on his way. He won't even bother killing them or fighting them or harming them in any way. He'll just walk on. But as soon as he walks away everything that they possess.
All of the food that they Russian, everything that they stored will be instantaneously destroyed. Automatically, it will be destroyed.
He won't do anything to them physically, he won't harm them, but because they disbelieved in him, and as soon as they leave, he will make all of that vanish, all of it will be destroyed. And then he will come across another group of people, another town, another village, another city, and He will say to that group of people, believe in me, for I am your Lord. And they will accept, they will say, yes, You are our Lord, and they will accept, and they will worship him. So he will point to the heavens, and he will say, bring forth your rain, and the rain will descend upon them. And he will look at the earth and order written, commanded, bring forth your produce, and your vegetation. So
the earth will bring forth its produce and his vegetation.
So for those who reject Him, everything that they were stolen, even the small amount that they had, will be destroyed. And for those who accept Him, He will order what seems to be like the heavens coming with rain, and the earth bringing forth his vegetation. And we know that all of this is by the will and the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And not only this,
but he will have with him a mountain of bread, and meat that will follow Him every single place he goes.
So not only will he be able to give them rain, and food, for when the people are so starving, that people are in such a dire need, he will have with him a mountain of bread and meat. So when people believe in Him, He will say to them go and take from the bread and meat. And when people are starving. When people are poor, when there is drought and famine, the most luxurious type of food is meat.
So he will have the most luxurious type of food with him. And he will allow them to take from it as much as they want, if they believe in him.
And something else that he will do is that he will come across a group of people in a dry, barren land. In fertile, nothing can grow. There is pure desert, there is nothing there. It's barren, it's dead, it's dry. But he will say and point to the earth and he will say archaeology Uzuki bring forth your treasures. So the earth will spit up everything within its belly, gold, silver, diamonds, rubies, gems, jewels, precious stones, all of them will come out from the upon his command by the wind and the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And not only this, but he will also have with him following him. everywhere he goes. Two Rivers,
that seems like cold water, and a river that seems to be molten lava, burning fire, the love that you get out of volcanoes, a river of water and the river of fire. But they will be deceptive appearances. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us that indeed, his water is in reality fire, and his fire is in reality water. So if you're ever presented with the tube, go for the fire. Don't go for the water. So Pamela, but how much a man will it take? If you were ever in that position? How much strength courage, Eman takoyaki. Pain would it take to say no, I'm not going to jump in that cold water. I'm going to jump into the fire. It's not an easy thing. And this is why
we're told to be aware of that the jump to seek refuge in Him. Because not only will the times be hard for his trial after trial after trial will be so severe that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that a man will go out to seek that the judge
to look at him out of curiosity, out of interest. He doesn't want to believe in him. He believes that he is mean. But he goes out because he's curious, what is this the job? What's this thing that everyone's talking about? What will he do? What's he doing? So out of curiosity, he will go to find out what the job is. And because of what he will see, he will disbelief
Subhan Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned to us that a man will tie up his family, his wife, his daughters, the people in his household, he will tie them to his house to make sure they don't go out to seek the junk. Just out of curiosity. No one will go back thinking that I'm going to believe in him, but they just want to see what's it all about. But because the trials he brings will be so severe, those people will disbelief and it doesn't stop there. But it continues
Because he will move
from every single land to the next land, like wind driven rain. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described that he will go through the whole of the earth, upon every single land, not leaving anything except for Mecca and Medina.
And he will go and move like wind driven rain, when you have rain and you have clouds like today, and then you have that strong wind that pushes the clouds, Those clouds will move from one country to another, in a matter of seconds, in a matter of minutes, they will move so fast, because of the of the steady strong current of the wind.
This is how the job will move upon the earth. He will move like wind driven rain. And what makes this more amazing
is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us
that the jar will only remain upon the earth, For how many days 40 days, that's 40 days. And he will enter each and every single land except for Makkah and Medina, you know, around the world in 40 days, like we say, literally, he will be around the world in 40 days, except for McCann, Medina.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that the first day of his 14 will equal the length of the year. And the second day of his 14 will equal the length of a month, and the third day of his 14 will equal the length of a week, and then all the remaining days will be normal.
So the severe trial is not just a single day, but that first day will have the same length of the whole year, the second day, the whole length of a month, the third day, the whole length of a week, and then every other day will be normal.
And if this wasn't enough, he will continue to bring trial after trial, and he will go to land upon land.
And one of the trials that he will bring is that when people disbelieve in Him, He will say to them, what if I resurrect your dead parents? And they say to you believe in me, will you believe
if I bring your dead parents back to life? And I allow them to tell you that I am the true God will you not believe
so they will say yes. So he will owe the to Jim to take the form of his dead parents that person's dead parents. So they will come in the shape and the form of their dead mother and father, the mother and father are dead in the ground buried, but the jinn will take their form. And they will come to their child and they will say oh my child, believe in him, for he is your Lord. And that person will believe
trial upon severe trial and the jar will go across each and every single land, not missing out anything.
Until finally he comes to Medina
and he will come to Medina and at that time Medina will have gates surrounding it. And upon each gate there will be two angels with swords brandished sword sticking out so that the child will not be able to enter. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned to us that he will go and climb upon the mountain and he will look down and he will say, the apostle Mohammed, this is the Palace of Mohammed pointing to the bone to the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in some narrations, it is said he will say that this is the white palace of Mohammed. And if you were to look at the aerial photos of the mosque of the prophet SAW Selim, what colorism it's white.
So he will come and he will not be able to enter Medina.
For those people within Medina, who are not true believers, who are hypocrites are disbelievers will be taken out so that the judge will come to Medina and he will strike it with his fists three times.
With each striking there will be an earthquake, and with each earthquake, the hypocrites and disbelievers will be taken out of Medina. So for those people who are not truly believers, who think they can just run into Medina to seek refuge and protection from him, No, because when he comes, his earthquakes will make them all come out. So no one will remain within Medina except the true believers.
And then he will set up camp there.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that there will be a young man who is living in Medina and he will come out
to seek the job.
And there are many emotions concerning the story. But basically what happens is is that this man will come out and he will come across a group of the army of the junk. And He will say to them, Take me to your Lord. Take me to your leader
and so on.
We'll ask him, Do you believe in Him?
And the man will reply No. So they will say, kill him here on the spot. He's a disbeliever kill him, but that one of them will say, and he will remind the others, do you not remember that the judge said that any dispute that you have, take it back to the job, he is your judge. So don't kill him because he will make him angry. Take him back to the journal, let him deal with it. So they will take him all the way back to the job.
And the job will ask him, Do you believe in me? And he will reply No.
So the job to show the people around him his powers and the strengths that he has, he will chop him in half,
from the middle of his head downwards, chop him into two hubs. And he will even walk between the two hubs to show that he is two separate paths, and then he will walk back and then He will say to the man stand, and the man will stand. He will come back to one.
And then He will say to him again. Do you now believe?
And the man will reply? No, I have only increased in my insight of you. Now I definitely know that you are the jump and you will not be able to do this to anyone after me.
So the job will like make him lay down and he will want to slaughter to chop off his neck. But a large soldier will decree that his neck will be protected by iron and copper. So each time that the child tries to strike off his neck, the blade will bounce off. He won't be able to go through. It'd be prevented and so frustrated that the job will pick him up and throw him into the river of fire. But the profits on the law while he was Sallam told us that in reality, that a river is not a fire. There is the cool river of water, the cool river of paradise.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned this man, and he said had the moon NASA had the window behind me. This man, this youth
he will be the greatest martyr in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala this man who confronted the jungle, he will be the greatest martyr in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala
so that the job will continue to move and there will be many other Muslims outside of Mecca and Medina. And during that time that Mandy will be present, the Maddie will be present and the Muslims will be in camped in Jerusalem.
They will be in camped in the fortress that is Jerusalem and the gel will come in to fight them. This is the last stand for the Muslims. This is the last place that they will make their stand. This is the major final battle between the the gel and the Muslims so that the gel will be laying siege to the fortress. him and his army will lay siege to the fortress.
Until one day the MACD will come out, and he will want to lead the federal prayer in the morning. And by that time rissalah his salatu salam will have descended
in Damascus and he will make his way to Jerusalem and he will arrive at at fudger time. So when they see me Sally, Sam Mandy will step back and he will say Teresa lead the prayer Jesus.
But recently Salaam will say no, this is your oma and you are its leader. And he will stop back.
So the man he will go and he will lead the federal prayer. And after they finished the physical prayer, the worlds of Damascus the walls of Jerusalem the fortress will be breached and the john and its army will enter into Jerusalem
and the fighting will begin. And as they are fighting the Jarl will see re Salli Salatu was Salam. And as soon as he sees him, he begins to dissolve and disintegrate.
Simply by seeing him. All of his strengths. All of his powers that he had, he will begin to dissolve and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described this and he said it is just a salt dissolves in water.
What happens when you put salt in water? it vanishes, you can't see it. It just dissolves immediately, he will begin to dissolve like this. Simply see me Sally salatu salam and so he will dissolve. And because his powers are diminishing, his strengths are going he will notice and he will run and flee. He will run away. And recently he saw two salami chasing, and he will chase him and finally he will catch him and he will kill Him and He will take off his head and then he will show it to the people so that the people will know that the job is dead.
And then the Muslims will be victorious in the battle.
So this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us
From the stories of the job, from his appearance, from the trials that he will bring, and how he will eventually be killed and destroyed.
Now here is a few important points that I want to mention to you. How do we seek protection from the digital? There are many ways and many things that we can do. The first and foremost thing that we need to do is we need to learn about our religion. And we need to learn about all of the different aspects of our religion, including the job. Now remember that story that I mentioned to you at the beginning of that man in the harem, who stabbed someone that he thought wasn't the job, had he studied Islam, had he studied the job, he would have known that it can't be the the junk, that the junk cannot enter Mecca and Medina, let alone be performing in Iran performing tawaf
in that time,
he would also know that even if he was the jar, he will not be able to kill him, because only recently salatu salam killed him. Had he studied the jar, he would have known all of this, and he would have known that this man cannot be the jar. But because he didn't study his religion, he didn't know about the jar, he didn't know what he looked like. He didn't know the trials that he will bring hidden or know his story. He was deceived.
And he did what he did. The second thing that we need to do is to hold on firmly to Islam. So it's not just simply learning about the religion, but rather implementing it and applying it. And I'll give you an example of this.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in that Hadith, that the jar will stay upon the earth for 40 days, the first day will be like a year, the second day, like a month, the third day, like a week, and then the rest of the days will be normal days. What question did the companions are the Allahu anhu mask? What was their first thought? What was the question that they asked?
they asked about Salah, the prayer.
Now imagine if we had been there? Our question would have been almost in Java, how do we defend ourselves? A messenger of Allah what weapons Shall we build on messenger of Allah? Is there some martial arts that I can learn to take under the jungle? Or messenger of Allah? What should I do? Where should I run? How should I do it? The companions were educated and nurtured in a different way. their way of thinking was different.
They knew the story of the job, their main concern wasn't what was going to happen with it. The job role is going to go how he's going to be defeated. They said, O Messenger of Allah, how would we pray on that day? That day? There will be like a year, its length will be like a year How shall we pray? So Pamela, look at this beauty and education that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave his companions of the Allahu anhu. This is what we need to do for ourselves, our families, our children, so that when they are there,
they come across these trials and tribulations. They face them, not thinking about other stuff, which is unimportant, but rather they think about to Salah, about the man about taqwa, or messenger of Allah, how should we pray that day? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, estimate, estimate, the day will be like a year. So estimate the times of the prayer, you still have to pray the prayers of the year, but you need to estimate the time.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is educating them about the prayer.
So number two, holding firmly on to Islam, it's not just simply saying I'm a Muslim, learning about stuff or not doing anything about it, it needs to be practically implemented. Number three,
to learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
To learn about our RP, the our belief, our creed, to learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala and his names and his attributes, because if we know Allah subhanho wa Taala we will not be fooled by anyone else that claims to be gone. But if we don't know Allah, then someone that comes to clay and claims to be God, and He has all of these powers, who will be fooled by him and deceived.
We will be fooled and deceived by him. But if we know what lies, we know that he is not one if we know for example, that he will not have the word disbelief written on his forehead.
We know that Allah azza wa jal will not be hunchback. That is perfect. That is annoying. That is all hearing that is all seeing that how can we be deceived by anything else by this job, or anyone else that claims to be gone.
But if a person doesn't know their own load, who they're worshipping, they don't know his names and his attributes, they can easily be deceived. Number four, the fourth thing that we need to do
is we need to
remember those two as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught to his companions
Just as he told them a surah of the Quran,
Allah in the becoming Isaiah be Johanna moment as a woman fitness
It's a very simple to our four statements.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach like you will teach total 30 in each and every single prayer. Now for the majority of us, our families, our children, they may not know this to our and we don't teach them this to arm. So how then will they be protected from the trials of the junk when they don't return to Allah Subhana Allah, Dinah, and make to add to him.
And the fifth and final thing that I want to mention to you, with regards and in terms of seeking protection from the jail is memorizing those first 10 verses of surah two tab. Now when you come to Surah paragraph, and this is like what I was mentioning at the beginning, when you come to Soraka, and he mentioned and you memorize those first 10 verses, and you recite surah Krakow every single Friday, why is it that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is making this link between surah Toluca have and the trials of the jungle?
And the answer is very simple.
Surah Toluca, from the beginning to the end, its major theme is the trials and tribulations that a person will face in this life, the trials and tribulations that a person will face in this life. And there are six of these trials, you may face one of them, one of them, or any combination of them.
But a large agenda within the surah mentions these trials, so that you will be prepared, and you will know how to overcome them.
And why the journal is linked to the surah. The reason is, because the jarwin, he comes to a bring the same six trials. And these are the trials that he will also use. So these are genuine trials that a person may face during their life. But when did the gel comes, he will also have these six trials. So when a person knows
what these trials are, and how to overcome them, then when the child comes with the same six trials, he will also know how to overcome them. These six trials very quickly. And this in and of itself is a different lecture, the six trials mentioned within Sudoku to have, but very quickly.
The first trial is the trial of oppression and injustice,
oppression and injustice. The second trial is a trial of the love of the rich and powerful. The third trial is the trial of wife and children. The fourth trial is the trial of the arrogance of one's lineage, his ancestry being arrogant about his roots. Number five, the trial of knowledge. And number six, the trial of leadership. These are the six trials, that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in Surah, Taka throughout the various stories in Surah, two. Now, let us take these six trials once again. And let us connect it to the junk. Now that you know the story of the jar, let us connect it to the junk. So the first trial will be the trial of oppression and injustice. And oppression and
injustice of the job will be immediate. As soon as he comes. When he goes across people, he will kill them, he will chop them into half, he will throw them into the fire, he will destroy one of their possessions, trial of oppression and injustice over and over again. So you will continue to beat them and he will continue to destroy them. And he will continue to kill them until the people disbelieve in Allah and they believe in Him the trial of oppression and injustice. And this is something mentioned over and over again. In the story of surah Toluca have a lot as Elgin mentions it in the story of the people of the cave. They feared that the king and their people would oppress
them and doing justice towards them. So they went into the cave and they sought refuge. This is the same trial that the judge will bring also, his second trial will be the trial of the love of the rich and powerful. The love of the rich and powerful doesn't mean that you yourself or that person has money or wealth. What it means is that they love to be associated with those who are rich and powerful.
So for example, when you see someone who's very rich, or from a royal family, or from someone that's very powerful, even the lowliest assistance, the people who are the loneliest people in their organizations,
the people who are right at the bottom, because they are associated with this power, and this riches and this fame. They also think that they are better than everyone else.
Even though their job may be the loneliest job, but simply because of Association, the love of the rich and powerful, they think they are better. So likewise with the judge, as soon as he comes out 70,000, people immediately will follow him, why
they won't be given anyone, they won't be given any power, nothing will be offered to them, but immediately they will accept, because they will see the power of the job, the wife did, the job possesses everything that he has, and automatically they want to be associated with him. So they will have this fresh love for the rich and powerful. So this is the second trial that he will bring. The third trial is the trial of wealth and children and children can also mean manpower.
So that the job will have one, he will have this mountain of bread and meat, he will allow the heavens to bring forth, he will order the earth to bring forth this vegetation, he will make different types of treasures come from the earth. And for those who believe in Him, they can have access to all of this
they can have access to all of the swamp and to all of his manpower that he has the 1000s upon 1000s of people that will follow him. So he will bring this one this trial of wealth and children. The fourth try that he will bring as the trial of arrogance of lineage, a person's ancestry, he will use a person's roots, his ancestors, his lineage, his forefathers in order to misguide them. And the example of this is the one that I gave during the lecture. When he will make the jinn take the shape and the form of a person's dead parents. Those people refuse to believe in that the junk. So what changed their minds. It was their ancestry, their forefathers they need because they're proud of
their forefathers. So when the jinn take the shape of their parents, and the parents say to their children, believe in the jolly is your Lord, they will believe arrogance of lineage, they will believe in their forefathers and they will follow their forefathers to misguidance. Number five knowledge
he will be given knowledge and he will use this knowledge to go across the whole of the earth. So he will be like wind driven rain, and he will enter into every single land except Mecca and Medina and he will come to the people in every single lunch, you will be given much knowledge and based upon the knowledge that he has, he will misguide the people and the people will disbelieve in the loss of Hannah who was there Ireland and the sixth and final trial, the trial of leadership, the trial of leadership.
So he will have possession of the rulership and authority over the whole of the earth, except for Mecca and Medina, he will have conquered and entered every single land. So he will have all of this leadership. And so he will use this also to make people just believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Now, when a person recite surah Telegraph, and he reads surah calf, whenever Allah subhana wa Taala mentioned, one of these different trials, he also mentioned the outcome, and how to overcome these trials. But this is a different lecture in and of itself, and it will take too much time to go into. But I what I request from you in conclusion, is don't just think that the job is something that you don't need to be worried about. Study the job, as well as the other major signs of yom Okayama. Learn about them, teach them to your families and your children. Because even if you know about them now, the likelihood is that the next generation your children, your younger brothers and sisters,
your nephews and nieces will not know about the job. And so when they're asked about the job, they will say yes, we heard about it, someone mentioned to it, our elders, our forefathers, our you know the people in our communities to always talk about the job, but we don't know what the job is. And this in and of itself is a sign that the job is coming. So teach it to your children to your family members, and then recite Soraka. But don't just recite it, I don't just look over the meanings, and the translation of Sora Toluca, but go deeply into it's the seal. Because Allah azzawajal chose this surah first to recite every single week. And it's not just that you have to worry about the job when
he comes and the clause that he brings. But these six trials are questioned in justice level of the rich and powerful wealth and children arrogance of lineage, knowledge and leadership. These are trials that people face throughout their lives. Whether the gel comes on or doesn't come, they will face this over and over again. So we need to know how to overcome these trials. And the answer lies within sort of the gap. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala from his immense mercy hasn't just given us the trials and the problems. He's also given us
The solution to the problem. So inshallah I hope that each and every single one of you will go back and recite surah telegraf and understand sola Telegraph and studied deeply and implemented and applied practically how they will load and alum sallallahu ala nabina Muhammad Ali, he will zombies running around and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen.
Do we have any questions? Okay, so I think we have like some time for questions.
So we have seven minutes Exactly. Yeah.
