No salat wa salam ala Rasulillah he while early he was happy he was salam alaikum eliminare may info no one found me my LinkedIn I was in an email not a bill al Amin la my naledi Grieco Shoukry cohosts neighboured Attic. So hamdulillah last time finished 12 is from the Surah Surah tell calf
and if you note in the first 10 acres,
this is in a sense a recap but also noting the special lessons in the first 10 And if you remember from last time, what is special about the first and is from surah till calf. Who can tell me who remembers when we talked about the virtues? Yeah.
Yeah, so does protect you from the fitna with the gel, Radhika Lovick. So if you memorize it that protects him for the fitness of the gel. So some of the lessons that will allow Alan pertain to the fitness of the gel to any fitna but in particular to the fitness of the gel. So here Allah azza wa jal says about his book that it is what straight without any crookedness, so the person who absorbs the lessons of the Quran, lives such a life straight without crookedness. And the greatest crookedness is that JAL, claiming to be God or the son of God or divine in whatever sense. So the one who absorbs the lessons of the Quran and reads it will have no crookedness in their belief. So
this is one thing to keep in mind. Also, when Allah azza wa jal says, This is a warning for those who claim that Allah has gotten a son or adopted a son. So if it is impossible, for the Son, or the child, of God, to be divine meaning there cannot be a son, or a child of God, divinity, there is impossible. So if that's the case, for that possible, or impossible or hypothetical divinity, for the child, the progeny, what about God Himself? Right, so the girl coming to claim that he is God is impossible, because it says here that even claiming that the progeny of God is Divine is a great sin, even that, so even Allah azza wa jal cannot be a human being or assume the form of a human
being. So flawed human being does not equate the divine. And then also one of the lessons in Latin The first 10 is that Allah azza wa jal had made everything on this earth, and adornment for air for it, Xena, and that all of that is going to collapse, indicating that we should not be fooled by the appearance of the dunya, that there is a reality greater than that. So if you see some something that steals your mind, steals your heart from the dunya understand that it does not last. So the tricks of the jail are like that, the tricks of the digital or simply tricks, tricks, in what sense that he's given that to support falsehood, but if you believe that this entire dunya will be
leveled, and none of it will be left standing, whatever things he brings, whatever
extraordinary things he performs, will not impress you, because you know that behind them lies falsehood, and no amount of extraordinary at can bolster falsehood, because all of it eventually, right will collapse. So this, the mountains will the sun, the moon, everything will collapse. So this is another lesson not to be fooled by appearances, even if these appearances are attractive, and look beyond. So the person who is able to look beyond the claims of the JAD will not be tricked by whatever he performs. So that is a lesson in it. And then also, lastly, when Allah says, Do you suppose that the idea of the people of the cave is something wonderous, extraordinary, unlike other
other, unlike our other AI that, in that sense, also Allah is saying that whatever you see in front of you, that is
impressing you, there are greater things that we have. So the sun and the moon and what have you are greater than the eyes of the people of the cave. And similarly also, what you see around you, in the dunya is greater than what at the gel is going to perform. So don't think that that is too extraordinary. Don't make that sway you because Allah has more proofs of his oneness, more proofs of his Ascendance than the gel for his claims. Right?
All right, so Allah azza wa jal continuously presents proofs of all of that, while the jabs proofs are miniature in comparison to the proofs that Allah azza wa jal presents to the contrary
So maybe on Allahu Allah and ultimately what it is, but maybe these are some of the lessons that if a person understands from Surah Tilka from the Quran in general, but in particular from Surah Alkaff and really absorbs them, then the fitna of the JAL will not impact them, will Allahu Allah him so that's what part of what we want to do is, see what the lessons are and absorb as many of them as possible. So we start at age 12. And now insha Allah will begin with Isaiah 13. And we said with Isaiah 13, Allah azza wa jal begins to tell the story of the people of the cave in a little bit more detail. So previous to this, he summarized it. Now, there's a little bit more detail in it.
So he says, no, no naka. So Ali cannabutter. Home Bill Huck, we are telling you their story in truth, meaning we are telling you their story, as is as it happened. In the home fit yet when they are youngsters or youth and obey Him they had Iman in there, Rob, was it now home Hooda and we increase them in guidance.
So Allah says na, na casa la cannabutter. Home Bill hack, why is this significant?
Because a lot of people dispute their story, in terms of their numbers, in terms of what happened to them. There's a lot of speculation going around. So Allah azza wa jal cuts through all of that, and he says, you want to hear the truth about them? Here it is, because no one else can supply that except Allah xuejun. And the past Subhanallah is tricky. Right? It's very tricky. Before I didn't think that before I fought well, you know, the story of Adam for mod and Nora has just the past. I mean, I thought the future is miraculous. If you say something about the future. That's definitely miraculous, because it did not happen. Right?
I thought the past is what is easy? No, actually, no. The past sometimes is as mysterious as as difficult as the future is. Because all this all these details were lost. We don't know much about the past. Think about it. Right? We don't know much about the past the origins of humanity. That's why people dispute it till today. You have scientists, you have philosophers you have this and you have that telling us about how did it all start because we lost the beginning, and lost a lot of details of nations and how they lived and what they believed all of that was lost. So when we wonder who these people were, we have no clue.
And so we guess and we speculate, so when it comes to the people of the cave, appreciate the fact that Allah azza wa jal is supplying these details, because otherwise you would not know them. So he says this is the truth.
In the whole video to an AMA noburo Behave, they are young so we said fit here and the photo Allahu Allah is a person who is range wise from 19 to 30 or 19 to 40. Right? So they are young. So assume that they could be 1920 or in their 20s. Young enough, but smart and wise and brave. So Allah says, A man will be Rob be him. They had Iman
was it Nahum Houda, and we increase them in guidance.
So they previously are guided right? That's why they have Iman.
And he says visit now we increase them in guidance. This tells you that you are constantly in need of guidance, and you will never have enough of it.
Who who has evidence for that?
in the Fatiha
What do you say?
Idina said autumns every single time they were already Muslims is in this Huda? Yes. Do I need more Absolutely. So what is this more that I need greater Iman
and greater knowledge in detail? You may know things in general, now specifically, and greater practice and greater your theme. And you will continuously be in this process of asking for greater guidance and more of it and more of it until you die. There's nothing elimite So Allah says in another AOA, Latina Dou, Zed the home Houda, the one who were guided Allah increased them in guidance because the more guidance you have, the more that you will understand of Allah's areas in the Quran and in the world around you, the more Iman the more willing to sacrifice. So, you will know as we said, you move from the general to the specific now you apply the things that you know
now when you apply other knowledge and other in
sights will be given to you. So you're always perpetually in a motion of increased guidance. So Allah azza wa jal, he says what they have believed and we increase them in guidance. And this is how Allah azza wa jal and this is what he wants from you to push for guidance so he can guide you not be content with it and said, This is what I am and this is what I will be no push for it and ask Allah for guidance and when you say it in the Salah, Idina asked for a dinner, and part of the hidayah as well is for you to stay on the path after you've known it.
That's part of he Daya. Right, because you could know it, but then abandon it. I know it but something else catches your eye, something else steals your heart. So let keep me on that path by the hedaya ADNOC autonomous takim and here Xad the home Houda
The next area he says Subhana Allah to Allah waterbottle. Now Allah Kulu be him if calm will follow and he says we strengthen their heart when they resolutely with confidence said or Nobunaga BUSA Mayawati will our rub is the rub of the heavens and the earth Len nejsou, Amin Dooney, he will not call on anybody else or anyone else as a doula will not call as an ILA on anybody else. Look at pulling Ethan Chautauqua indeed if we say that we have said something outrageous and far fetched.
So this is their statement. But in the beginning, Allah as the dad says, water bottling and other coulby him, if calm will follow.
We strengthen their hearts.
Here the image right, is that we've tied their heart to strengthen and stabilize that's the image, the meaning is strengthened.
But we tied or robata so that the heart doesn't move. That's the image as if, when you're afraid what happens to your heart, it starts beating and you feel as if your heart is gonna jump out of your body. Right? It's not still
And subhanAllah even in another ayah Allah azza wa jal, you know brings this image image is there that will have sorrow, whereby Allah, Allah will 100 year
right? He says that the hearts have reached your, your hearts have reached the throats. Figuratively in a sense of what you have become so anxious, it feels as if your heart is gonna what? Jump out. This is how terrified you are. So when that happens, and the heart is agitated and moving, what do you need to do?
Put it in place, fix it in place, how do you fix it in place? You tie it is that's the image what are Botswana Allah Kaluga him we really strengthened and stabilize their hearts. Why? Because what they are going to do and what or they're going to say requires this stiff beat from Allah azza wa jal because they intended to do it. They're going to challenge their people. And they are alone.
Right? So you think about it, like
they're young. They're going against what?
family, parents, society, friends, everybody they know and everything that they know, and everyone is going to turn against them.
Now I want you to imagine if you're asked to do that, how much faith and how much strength Allah would have to give you to be able to do this, because what are the consequences of it? They will lose what?
right? So imagine that you would have to rise, not not to irritate not to upset but just to assert the truth. And your family abandons you, you would no longer your parents, you have no place here. Your neighbors turn against you, your friends turn against you.
They attack your reputation,
right. They threaten you with death. There is no place to go to no one to listen to you are no refuge except Allah azza wa jal, and then the few others who believe what you believe, meaning what you've lost your money, you lost your home, you lost your comfort, you lost the food that you're used to reload, we lost everything. So what is going to give you that push, that impulse that that ability to challenge all this and yet sacrifice and yet, continue to hold on to the truth what is going to give you all of the
this defeat comes from Allah Zildjian not from you. You have to believe it comes from Allah as though did not from you. And so when the Muslims and that's the difference between believing in yourself versus believing in Allah azza wa jal.
We don't believe
given ourselves in a sense of what I'm confident that I can do it,
if Allah leaves you to yourself, will you be able to do anything? Nothing, if Allah lets go of you and leaves you to yourself, or you will not be able to do anything, but he assists you though. So that's why Muslims when they were fighting those battles, and they were outnumbered, and their enemy was coming to them from each direction, what is it? How does Allah Azza destabilize the hearts and the bodies at time? For some of these times he makes them sleepy. You read the Quran, right? And he he would send upon them sleep, so that they don't become agitated. or anxious or afraid before battle that mean they're waiting for battle, and they can't keep their heads up. They're sleepy,
they're falling asleep. Why? Because Allah wants to comfort their heart. or Allah says reign, or Allah azza wa jal changes their perception of their enemy in the beginning, they see them very little.
Right? They see them very little while you're a little confused or uni him right. So you both them and the enemy, they look at each other and they say, What are these words 70 100 only. And that is how Allah azza wa jal sends that to beat to the heart. So in this sense, they rose against everybody. And that's why when Allah says, if calm will for Carlu, it doesn't mean that they stood up and said, but rather than the wood with confident with insistence, they said, Rob, buena Ragusa to alert. Our Rob, is who because now the people like we understand there people were worshipping others, either instead of Allah completely or with Allah. There will save our Rob is whom, who is
the creator of all the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And there Rob is our Rob. No one else. Okay.
And now they've established Rubia. Okay, just simply by asking, who created everything, and who provides everything? And who answers the DUA. And who takes care of you, everybody will say Allah azza wa jal.
No one will say, the idols
or the intercessors, or the dead, no one will say this, that the dead created the sun, and they bring the daylight and take it away at night. No one says this, no one says that the dead or the idols, provide food for us or send rain down, no one says this. So they've established that if are we going to take a rub? It is the rub of the heavens and the earth. There's no dispute here. And if that's the case, we're not going to take anyone else as an ILA that we call on to and ask for help. And that is the connection that the Quran establishes all the time. That is, the one that you need to ask is the one who has the power.
The one who the one who deserves worship is the one who creates everything. Everybody else is dependent on Allah azza wa jal, or if they are idols, they don't hear, they don't see, and they don't respond.
So they said that, if we were to take another ILA, indeed, we would have said something completely far fetched and outrageous, Chautauqua is so far from the truth.
That is what they considered Chautala. So see how their perception and the perception of their people is very different. Their perception is that this is outrageous. How could we say this? Just like today, if you assert the truth, there will people who will tell you, what you're saying is outrageous, right? How could you say this? How could you think like this, if you assert the truth that you will find in the Quran and the Sunnah, they'll think that you're crazy. Whereas when you look at them, you will think that what they're saying and doing is outrageous. You see, the perception is very different. And it's all based on the foundation of what do you believe? And where
does that system of belief come from? And who's telling you what to believe and what not to believe? So the shut off the real shut off, if you want to know it, you can follow human perception. Any society cannot tell you what is acceptable and what is not. Because if they were to follow their society, what would happen to them, they'll be too far.
He cannot follow the perception of your society, the dictates of society by telling you what is right and what is wrong. What is normal and what is outrageous. You have to be an imagine how many people lived in their city. Let's say hundreds, let's say 1000s And they were only seven
as we will come to it, but the seven were right and everybody else was wrong.
So don't let numbers dictate right from wrong, but rather Evidence is Evidence. The Quran and the Sunnah are superb
mean. So that is what is outrageous, not the belief of the majority. Then they continue they refer to their people and they see how Olivia Colman Domingo when he added her these people of ours, they've adopted Ali her instead of Allah as origin
they see it ole a tuna Allah him Bissell tinium being Why cannot they bring clear evidence to support these claims? From an Avila movie many thorough Allah Allah He can EBA who is more unjust than the one who fabricates a lie against Allah xuejun.
So in this area when their salad saying, This is what our people have adopted, right?
And they're saying, where's their proof?
And this tells you and teaches you that, especially in matters that significant if there is no proof for something you can assert, you can assert the conclusion. So we say you claim that there is another God.
Where is your Sultan? Sultan is evidence proof, where is your evidence? In the absence of evidence there can prove cannot be a mean and that the claim cannot be substantiated.
So where is your proof and
if these things are ally, her,
the proof of their divinity, or the proof that they should be considered Adiga should be clear as the sun.
As the proofs of Allah azza wa jal exists existence and oneness is like the sun.
Because there is no greater fact than that. And nothing that we need more than that. So the proofs for it have to be very clear and available and accessible to everybody. You're with me?
So understand why because what is the thing, the truth that you need most in this dunya? According to this book, what is the truth that you need most in this dunya is to know that Allah is what one, and the could only worship one. That's the that's the best, the essential, most basic truths that everybody needs. If this is the thing that you need the most, then the proofs for it have to be available to everybody, and to be the clearest of proofs.
Right? Like, if people need medicine, that medicine should be available to everybody if need people need to eat and drink that should be available to everybody. And Allah made it available to everybody, right food is available to everyone. Water is available to everyone why? Because the need is necessary and widespread. The need for the right belief supersedes the need for eating and drinking. Because this is the life of the body, this is the life of the soul. So the evidence and accessibility of that proof should be everywhere, supporting that belief, included. The message of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, the Quran that everybody has, in addition to the physical signs
that we'll see every single day and the physical signs that you see in yourself. So it has to be the case. So these things are Alia, they must have proof. The absence of proof tells you that it is absolutely not possible for this to be an ILA because it's in dispute. Similar to if people say that a sub no Maria Malleus. Salam is the Son of God, a son of God or God, we say Where's the proof for that?
Even from the Bible is deficient. Even from the Bible itself, it's deficient, if he actually was the Son of God, or he was God or part of a Trinity, the Bible bullet would be so clear his own statements when he comes and talks to people would be so clear that I am the Son of God, that you should worship Me that you should direct your prayers towards me, right? It cannot be in dispute cannot be ambiguous because if it's ambiguous, then a person can say you what you did not deliver the message. You left us What puzzled questioning what you were saying. So the message of Muhammad Ali is salatu salam, when it comes to the hate, it's very clear that he is the prophet of Allah.
It's very clear, right? So that's why he's saying where is the proof for it? The burden is on you. The burden is on you. Then say from an Avila we manufacture Allah Allah hookah diva who he is, who is more unjust, had committed a greater wrong than the one who fabricates a lie against Allah azza wa jal
because Allah is the Greatest and the lie against him is more dangerous and most damaging. Don't you see that? If you cannot fabricate a lie against your younger brother, it's not like if you fabricate it against your father.
It's not the same. And it's not like fabricating a lie against the king. Because that's more severe.
Because the king will be upset because you lied about him. And then the consequences of that lie and what it could lead to whether it's chaos or whether it's
injustice or usurpation of right whatever it may lead to
But the damages are greater and when you fabricate a lie against Allah zoton What does lead to what does it lead to? Should
the thing that ALLAH does not forgive a great misguidance and great corruption on this earth? So a lie against Allah azza wa jal is severe and that's why, if you want to speak on behalf of Allah, you should be sure.
What are the only matassini For Alsina to communicate the other HalleluYah the Haram only after while Allah he
says do not that is don't fabricate a lie by saying halal and haram because that's a lie against Allah azza wa jal if you have no proof, and Allah was speaking to the polytheists they say this is a forbidden animal this is we can write this as we can slaughter and they will say, this is from Allah azza wa jal so if you know it to be halal, it's halal if you know it to be haram. It's haram if you're not sure, don't venture into speaking on behalf of Allah azza wa jal, because you could fall into the category of a fabrication of a lie against Allah azza wa jal, and the greatest lie is the lie of Schick right.
Next area now is 16.
Then it says whatever that is, or to whatever it is, to move home, this is the they continue to speak to each other way that does have to move on when my Abdullah Illa, Allah azza wa jal Caffee says, and now that you have secluded yourself from them, separated yourself from them, and what they worship, except for ALLAH, seek refuge in the cave, and Allah will extend and give you from his mercy. While you hate local men, I'm very committed for QA and also facilitate your livelihood for you. So meaning that since now you've separated from them take refuge in the cave. And Allah says that it will give you from his mercy and also livelihood. So this is here the act is Al, let
dissolve the separation, separation first in belief, it doesn't tomorrow, meaning you left what they believe, right.
And now it's no longer possible for them to stay physically around them. Because as you will see, they are not going to let them believe what they wanted to believe. So now we have to separate so you have to leave. And I again, one shoe to really understand what this meant for them, that they were leaving behind everything that they know, and everything that they own. Right, like imagine right now, if you are actually to pack and leave
all the things that you love stay behind, and the only thing that you have is just few dollars with you. And you just leave. Right?
What is the thing that is so precious in your life that could force you to live like this? That now willingly or
this is by choice? Because they could say to their families, you know what we were wrong. We'll just go back to whatever you guys wanted to us to believe. That's it. No harm, no foul. We're back. We're normal now.
But they say no. What is the thing that would be so precious, that you will say I will sacrifice for it. Everything that I love, and I will leave my house, my apartment, my family, everything and go somewhere new. So here is a physical separation that followed what the religious separation now says what do you now that you separate it from them and everything that they worship except Allah azza wa jal, you still worship him, but not everything else that they worship for? Oh, Elan Caffee, seek refuge in the cave. And Allah will provide for you from his mercy and also livelihood, livelihood in terms of what are you going to eat? What are you going to drink? What are you going to find shelter?
How easy will your life be? He say we will go in the cave and Allah will give us the question here is to ask how did they know that Allah is going to give him
all right, let's see man. Right? How did they know? Because we're not told that they had any profits around right? Who would tell them by the way, if you go into the cave, is going to be easy for you. Or Allah will give you shelter? Or or or is nothing like that. But they said what? Since we left all of this for the sake of Allah Zoda Allah will replace it with something better. Allah will compensate us Metallica che and lillahi our the hola who are your men? If you leave something for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate you something better.
And this is better. Right? Because Allah azza wa jal what you know through that story, he makes them a sign he makes them an IRA is more
much much better than what they left behind. We know nothing about their
city we know nothing about their contemporaries who lived at their time, but we know much about them. So Allah elevated them, but that elevation came what when they are willing to sacrifice I will leave my comfortable house and bed and stay in a cave
with no assurances except the belief in Allah azza wa jal just like when somebody tells you this job is haram, leave it for the sake of Allah and you say, leave it for the sake of what there is nothing. There's nothing here. You only just to leave it and jump into the unknown. This is jumping into the unknown.
Do you want me just to leave this country because there was sin in it and to migrate to another country for the sake of Allah? And I know nobody over there? Nobody that but where is your trust in Allah azza wa jal, right if that if you really have to leave something, like really have it that you really are jumping into the care of Allah azza wa jal so the cave is what how comfortable do you think a cave could be? damp, dark, cold, right? How comfortable can it be? And how long will they stay? And how long will their money sustain them? You see the anguish that you could develop when you're thinking about Are you crazy asking us to go into a cave? A cave of all places? How will we
survive in a cave? Is that a plan
but inshallah come Allah who will give you rise Rama and will provide ease of livelihood for you. So when the launched with this trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala because there are no other options. Of course we're not saying Hey, be reckless, jump from a bit high to high building and think that Allah will catch you when you fall because I believe in Allah azza wa jal that's insane right? Because nobody asked you to do this. But what we're saying when you have no choice, but to leave the Haram believe that Allah has to will take care of you when you sacrifice for his sake. So this is what has happened to them. And so their hope was what their hope simply was what that we will find refuge
there, find food find water be able to sustain ourselves inside and sustain our iman This is it. That's their their hope. Now Allah azza wa jal says what he even asked to show you now a glimpse of the favor that he had given to them without a shumsa either Tala act as our Wangka him that Delia meanie were either horrible Dr. Doom data shemale Johan FIFA Jyoti Minh, you will see if you were able to see them, right he doesn't say anything about sleep here but he mentioned it before right? But he approached Subhan Allah to Allah he says and if you're able to see them you will see the sun skipping them when it rises.
That's the care of Allah xojo Not simply food and water the sun right takes care of them.
Alright, this is how much care Allah has given to them and this is how much comfort Allah provided for them. What are shumsa either Tala at the Mighty Sun that will not, will not take its rays away from any for anybody. You could be under the sweltering sun, nothing is going to protect you right. But for them, when it rises, its rays they will veer away from the cave. It will not touch it.
This is Allah's commands for the sun. Does that will anchor for him to turns to the right. That Telia mean what either horrible but the cradle home data shemale and when it's about to set escapes their bodies. So you know the scholars of Tafseer they said that when the sun rises, it skips the cave. So it does not disturb them. When it's about to set, right. It's going down it doesn't skip the cave. It skips the bodies. So it's in the cave, but skips the bodies
while home FIFA Tim min and they are in a spacious place inside that cave.
That he came in a Atilla This is from the science of Allah has. Right so Allah wants to remind you that yes, this is a sign, but this is one of the many signs of Allah zodion Mejia de la HuFa who will motard remember the Hooda that we talked about? The one of my Allah guides is the truly guided mean if you seek it, if you want it Allah will guide you.
But there is needs to be a price for that guidance. Right? Not sit back and say guide me and then what? How you really want it. So yeah, Allah make me rich. Okay. And then how are you going to be rich? Right? Not that I'm saying that should be a goal but then okay, how are you going to be rich just simply by asking Allah zodion simply it's, you know, following money will fall into your lap. No one does that. You have to do something in April.
To get something back, so you want the Huda ask Allah for it but then follow its means follow it leads to it. So if Allah guides you, you're truly guided no one can take that guidance away, well may yield live and if Allah misguides a person voluntad you the Allahu Walia Murshida no one can be his supporter or his guide.
That's why a person should ask Allah for hidayah all the time and know that he died is in his hand. And if that knows that if Allah has decreed
the misguidance of someone, then that person will be misguided.
Right? So in on the one hand, in a religious way, you will always call people to Islam, and you never give up on them.
On the other hand, noticing the Kadar Allah's decrees that if He decrees that somebody should be misguided is there is no room for you to interfere.
So you keep calling but you're not sad if Allah misguide someone sad in a sense, I understand but not sad in a sense of killing yourself over the fact that this person is misguided because Allah did not leave that up to you.
My yield lil if he wants him to be misguided, he's going to be misguided. There's nothing that you can do to change that fact meaning stop and focus on guiding people by not worrying about why they're not guided. Okay?
Then Allah azza wa jal continues.
And he says with several Whom are you call the will whom road? This is if you were to see them, you will think that they're awake, but they're asleep.
So if you were to see them, right, it means that their eyes were open. They're sleeping with their eyes open. Alright, well, Allahu Allah. But in a sense, that's how you would think that a person is awake. Right? When you look at him, he was what? Looking at you. But they're in fact, asleep. The symbol might call though Well,
we're not gonna label him that tell you a meanie what that is Shimon. So Allah is saying how he took care of them, that we will throw them to the right and turn them to the left, right, turn them to the right and turn them to the left says why is that happening? Of course Allah does not state why but in the Tafseer, they said, This is so Allahu Allah so that the Earth does not consume their bodies, if they will just simply sleeping on one side, only the Earth may eat their bodies, or something will happen to their blood and it will not run and it will clot meaning that something will harm them. So ALLAH turns them to the right and to the left, and to the right and to the left,
while they're asleep.
And here if you ask yourself, he said, This is fascinating, because Allah did not need to do that. Right? Allah could simply suspend the actions of the earth so it doesn't eat their bodies or suspend the not suspend, move the blood, so it doesn't clot. So Allah could kind of like physically commanded, so there is no need to turn right or left. As he commanded the sun. The sun is doing something unusual. He could have commanded the earth and the body to do something unusual, but he did not.
And this may be you, Allahu Allah. One lesson from it is that Allah azza wa jal does not all the time suspend all physical laws. Some he does, but some he doesn't. And even for Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam, some physical laws were suspended, but not everything. And it does teach you that you need to what to live with, and plan according to those physical laws. Maybe Maybe you may be in a situation, when you're really stuck. And there is no other way out. Allah could suspend some physical laws as a Karma could be. You don't wait for it. You don't plan for it, how could you plan for it, but you don't wait for it. And you don't ask for it to Allah show me a Kurama. And this and
that, that's that's the surest way for you to never see it is to keep asking for it. Because you want it so much. So you don't.
But here Allah is really saying, yes, the son was asked to skip its raise. But still Allah turned their bodies because the Earth is still doing what it's doing. And the blood is still doing what it's doing so that don't think that you can escape as a Muslim from the physical laws of Allah Zota that he sat on this in this life, you're still governed by them. So even the people of the cave are governed by them. Even Muhammad Ali salatu salam was governed by them, you can never really fully escape them. So maybe there's the lesson there. Right?
Will kill Boom belsito on the other eye, he will will seat Asus and their dog has spread his four legs at the entrance of the cave. Right.
So there are a couple of benefits actually from the mention of their dog here. One of them is that you are honored with the company of the honorable right. So why why is their dog mentioned
And why he's part of the story, right? Because they're known as the people who had a dog with them.
But it does teach you that even if you're a dog,
or a person of low status, law, knowledge or what have you, but you keep the company of the righteous, you're associated in righteousness, you keep the company of the noble, you become noble with them by association. So if you said, as the brother was saying, just before the the Halacha, if you attend to Halacha, and sometimes you have no purpose, really, of listening to the Halacha, but you just simply waiting for someone, because you want to talk to her to them, she was sitting in the Halacha for that. And Allah decides to forgive the people on that halacha guess what happens to you? Are you included in it or not? Included in it, even though it's just to me who is accidental, I'm
sitting here because I just want to talk to him. But that Rama includes everybody. So here the nobility of those people extended to the nobility of their extended to their dog, and he was mentioned in the Quran. So every day or every week, when you are reading Surah telegraph, you will say you were killed, boom, were killed, boom, were killed, boom, right? To teach you something about how the beginnings or the
the origins of a person or the origin of a thing don't really necessarily dictate the ending. Right? He's a dog in what sense? But in the story, he becomes what? A being of significance right? And he's mentioned again, rob your home can go home and so on.
And another benefit here Allah Allah said, some people may take from that maybe mistakingly know that they're staying alive for sure. Is that what you're allowed to keep a dog since they had dogs? And we say, well, of course you're allowed to keep dogs right?
But not pets. There's a difference. Of course, you're allowed to keep dogs because some people think oh, it's haram to keep a dog. Well, that's not the case. Right? You can keep a dog if it's for what
a guard dog that's one to help with the animals to help with the plants hunting. So you can right so this is a dog that Allahu Allah and fulfill that criteria
and even if not, suppose that suppose right hypothetically that it was not okay. So yep, there Sharia could be very different than your Sharia, isn't it? Your Sharia because you have statements from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that prohibit taking dogs as pets meaning keeping them inside the house as pets. So you want to you want the IRA to cancel the Hadith. This is their Sharia, this is what they used to do. But the Sharia of Islam brought on by the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam says otherwise do so don't make them contradictory. Even though we have no evidence here that this was a pet. It could be any of the things that we talked about that are still
permissible in Islam. Right.
Then Allah azza wa jal says lower Tala Tala him lower later in home Ferrara wala Molitor Amin whom wrote but he says if you were to see them lower later in home fear or or you will run away from them. And you will be filled with terror filled with terror. This is how Allah zoton preserved them from people's eyes and curiosity in a cave, right? But imagine if you were to climb towards that cave, right? As you getting closer and closer, you'd feel that without necessarily any rational reason you're getting worse. More and more afraid.
You're more and more afraid, right? So you don't because no one discovered them. Right? No one discovered them. Right? So nobody actually got to see them. But as you get closer you feel what? Anxious, anxious as you get closer. If you were to in fact see them, what would happen first, you would run back running
because he can handle it. And why? Because Allah has a real implant sphere in the heart of everybody who sees them. non rational, he said, why? Right? Because you could see them and they're awake. And you could ask questions and he could go in and you could examine and maybe they're dead and maybe, but no, it's not right. There's no rational reason for it. He is simply you will be filled with terror. And you would run as fast as you possible.
And that's how Allah protects.
Okay, so fear could be as they say, gentlemen, jun de la, a soldier of the soldiers that Allah azza wa jal employs, and he did that with
Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. First in the Quran, Allah says multifuel rubella vena cava wrote by Bhima Shaco. It says we can apply a place in the hearts of the kuffaar or rob terror because of their sheer
because they will be afraid.
So shake and go for especially when you oppose the truth. Allah Azza plants fear in the hearts of the disbelievers. And then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, no, sir to be Robbie mercy Raja Shah. He says I was championed with terror or with fear, the distance of a month, meaning from where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was to a month, months journey for more he was anyone who hears of Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam doesn't fight him
through those 1000s weapon, you know, has a treaty with them because they're what afraid of him? Afraid they say why he doesn't have the numbers. See in some armies, right, in some tactical tactics, they will slaughter people, right? In order to spread that so that they people will know if this army would come to you, this is what they will do to you. So that becomes
Exactly. The Mongols right at the tar. That's what they used to do slaughter in the hundreds of 1000s. So everybody so that if the survivors would say, this is what they did to us. And that paves the way for the next invasion and the next invasion and so on. Right. So that's a tactic. But the prophet that is Salam wa salam never did this.
And he was not that mighty and even power wise compared to what they could amass. They didn't have the numbers or the armors.
So why, why did that fear come from some Allah soldier
and it's actually for the benefit of the golfer. So they don't get killed. Right. And that, in a way invites them later on to accept Islam while safe. So here Allah has certain employees that terror and again, understand how much Allah azza wa jal was taking care of them. The things around you change, I people's heart change.
That their perception changes.
And some some of the
some of the some of that in the books of Tafseer. They said that, maybe they will be so afraid of them because they stayed for such a long time that they had very long hairs and the very long nails and other people have to see another move, assuming they see no they did not. And I'll tell you why. They said that they did not have long hairs and they did not have as a result of staying for such a long time. Or long nails that they look terrifying because of it. They say no, they actually woke up exactly looking like what they were when they went to sleep. Is he why is that? Because the next idea what can they take a bath normally it is a lubaina home and so we have brought them back from
their sleep. we awaken them so that they would inquire among each other about how long they have slept. Ha ha ido minimum Kembla bithumb One of them said, How long have you slept? How long have you stayed they said they'd be snowmen obado em we've slept for a day or one day like when from Federer to mother that kind of day for a day or part of a day or a boom Allah movie mela booth Tom, they said your Rob knows best how long you've slept?
Where is the evidence in this area that they did not have long nails and long hair?
They wouldn't have asked, right? They wouldn't have asked it. Because they say how long have you slept? If you They looked at each other? And they said while you will really really look strange. How long have we been asleep? Because look how long your hair is? And look how long your nails are? No it wasn't they looked exactly the same. That's why we said what we slept What do you like he'll just like a little bit failure to failure to market if that's the Yom that we slept on then they said or biodome because it's not really sunset yet. So a day or less than a day. Okay, that's how, you know, they said no, it's not it's not about that otherwise, they would have known. But let's go
back to the beginning bath Normally at this URL, we've awakened them so that they would ask questions of each other. So why does Allah want them to ask questions of each other because when they asked these questions, they will get to know what happened. And when they know what happened, then Allah has power will be manifesting clear. So that inquiry that they when they start to ask each other will reveal that miracle that Allah azza wa jal had set in place. So one of them said, How long have you slept? And by the way here before I explained it in detail, they said in that have said that ignore ibis, although the Allahu Anhu did us based on that
And then the numbers that you have that it will come later on that they were seven. Based on the conversation. They see how they see a pile of aluminium. He says one of them said,
How long have you slept? So this is what one called roulette with Nyoman. Obaldia. And they said we've slipped a day or part of a day. This is floral. It says the minimum number of floral is what? Three Carlota bukem. Allah movie mela booth, Tom, the others said, right. They said what Allah knows best how long you've stayed. That's plural. The minimum of that is what? Three? So they say 1337?
No, they said no, that linguistically they cannot.
No, no, it's an additional proof. But they say linguistically it cannot be the same. Right? Because it's an exchange. And they said, a yield his beanie Assa. So there has been two groups.
how long have you slept, they slept, we've slept the day or part of a day. So they say that this first group, they said this pop higher based on their HD had, they looked around, it seems like we came here at Fudger. This is Maghrib a day, maybe part of a day. And it tells you that you're allowed based on HD had based on the size that you see, to conclude and to state an opinion, it doesn't mean that you're disallowed, because you don't know what the truth is. No, this is a legitimate HD hat. So nothing wrong with that. They said they've concluded based on the best of their knowledge. The other site said do what Allah knows best how long you've stayed. And they said
they were wise in saying all of this, because they were saying to everybody, and to us also, we have no way of knowing. So rather than engage in a back and forth, back and forth without solid knowledge, what should we do skip this and focus on what's important? And that teaches us something about arguments and disputes. All right. If there is proof, keep talking. If there is no proof, and it's all guesswork, and maybe or maybe not, then stop. And if there's no benefit in it, like how long you've slept, should we spend all our time discussing how long we've slept? Is that really the most important thing we slept, and now we're awake, and maybe it was long, maybe it was short? It
doesn't matter now, what's next. So jump from the non beneficial that distracting into the beneficial and that takes wisdom. Because when you argue a lot of times your intention is to win.
And to prove your point, or prove the other person wrong, the wise only say okay, let me think about what's the wisdom on the benefit of that discussion? And do we have proof to continue discussing it or not? And if not, stop, skip and focus on what's important. And if you could learn that, and it's not something easy to learn but if you can learn that you will avoid a lot of arguments in your life. Right? You don't have to be sucked into them just simply because somebody is arguing. You think about it beneficial. Keep talking about it non beneficial stop. And that's what they said.
Or bukem Allah movie Mala bestow meaning ALLAH knows it Sabetha cumbia, what is to come here to heal and Medina. So send one of you that's the important thing that we should focus on. So send one of you with a silver that you have to the city. Because now they need supplies they need to eat they need to drink, so no need to keep talking about this. And that's one of the etiquettes of discussion and arguments.
Well yet a lot tough. What are you sure you're gonna become a hoarder? Let him Let him be gentle, tactful, and not alert people to who you are.
So you understand that they are what? Hiding from people. So now here we're sending you with this. But when you're going to go and buy, try to be as discreet as you can and Lauren, let them know who you are, and where we are. Why what's the problem with this? In the home El Dorado alikoum your do Muqaam they they know who you are and they have power over you. They will stone you or force you to go back to their religion and you will never be prosperous. If this happens, then that's the consequence that they were afraid of. If you if you were to be found out
and they discover who you are and what are your staying what is going to happen to you. You are doomed to come they will stone you or force you to go back to their religion. And they said why did they stay stoning first, and then force you to go back to them.
Religion second is that because they anticipate that they will never go back.
So the likelihood is that if we were to be caught, all of us will continue to be strong and steadfast and will be stoned to death. So that's the first and more likely scenario.
So if we're going to be found will be killed or, or they'll force us to go back to their religion.
Now we could say, well, what if they were compelled? Because compulsion in Islam right, you could stay to whatever and still hide your Islam. What if they were compelled to say Allah asserted his merciful if they were compelled here, they could hide their Iman. But they were afraid that under intense pressure, in fact, they will forsake the faith. If they really are tortured, and punished and isolated from each other, and kept in seclusion for a long time, maybe they actually will lose that faith. So no, they would rather die instead of that happening.
Pamela, and again, they are fit here. They're young, but they're very wise. And their Iman is very profound. And they associated success with iman, and last with the loss of iman than the Adam only fella, where he's adamant for lack loss in this life. Is what if you don't have Iman, if you disbelieve in Allah as the did that means that you have not successful in this life. What is success? If you have Amen, and believe in Allah azza wa jal, so that again, needs to actually to alert us to how we define success and failure. Right? Because to them, imagine if they were one of them, let's speak in modern terms. One of them was a doctor about to graduate, one of them was a
lawyer with his own practice. One of them was an engineer who's going to open his own. I don't know engineering firm is that a firm? I can anyway, so imagine this and this and this and this, they leave all of it, and they go and stay in a cave.
That's, aren't you abandoning worldly success? Right. You are, but for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, yet they did not define that as success. They find define success as loving Allah xuejun and sacrificing for his sake, and the loss is the opposite of all of it. Failure is the opposite. Even if there if that present remained a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, but without Allah azza wa jal, that's failure. Now, of course, we're telling people what combined the good of the dunya and the era okay? But if you were to force to make a choice,
that's when Allah will test our iman, if you're forced to make a choice, take this or you take that. And Allah azza wa jal gave them that test and they succeeded. Right?
we'll take one more IO. So Allah azza wa jal says here what Gatica thornleigh Allah him, let them know Abdullah he.
And Salah surgeon says and so we disclosed who they are and make people aware of who they are. They found out who they are. He doesn't tell us how that person goes out. And somehow he's discovered and then somehow they are discovered and then they know that they were asleep for 300 years or so. So all that story comes out. And he doesn't tell us subhanaw taala what happens to them afterwards, they continue to live the die immediately. He doesn't tell us exactly what happens to them. But he tells us why. Why he did all of that subhanho wa Taala and why he revealed their story. We've we disclosed who they were and made people find them Lea Allah mu so that they would know that the
Promise of Allah is true. And that the our there is no doubt about it. Either yet, and as the owner buying a home or a home while they were disputing that matter.
Here while they were disputing that matter could refer to the first thing or to the next thing that is to become meaning. It could mean that what Gallica I thought now la himedia 10, as an owner Boehner home, Amara home, Lea Alamo.
That is we've made people find out about them, because people were disputing whether there was a day of judgment or not the people of the city at that time they were disputing in doubt is there a day of judgment, is there a last day or not? So we made people to find out about them so that they will know that the Promise of Allah is true, and that there is a day of judgment. This is proof
because if these people can sleep for 300 years and wake up that means that there is a day of judgment Allah who is capable of doing this is capable of bringing back everybody after their die. So that they became proof for the Day of Judgment. Right. So the I thought meaning that they found them so that
They will know with clear proof in front of them that Allah as soldiers promise is true and there is a day of judgment or the attendez or owner they're disputing between them what to do with them after. So, the second part of what you have done as an owner may mean is that
these people who are asleep for 300 years die
and it has said well lo alum, this is again in the books of the fear in the in the in the story, not an authentic narration that when they go back to the cave, they die.
So, now people now after they know their story, they begin to discuss your tetanus or own Urbino Umbra home, what should we do with them?
We know that they've slept for 300 years we know that there is a day of judgment we know when we know now what to do with them. Now in that case, if the attorney has their own opinion on amerihome So some said
overnight, I said ignore other him Banyana what a boom and then we'll be him. This is built a structure around them Allah knows best their state. Meaning are they asleep? Are they dead? Will they come back?
Allah knows best we don't know. So that just built something around them to safeguard and protect. That's one party they said this Karla Levine of Allahu Allah Umbra Him those who had power said what? The net the heathen gnarly he missed you though you will build a message at that spot.
Okay, we will build a masjid at that spot. Here Allah azza wa jal wants to show you.
The contrast between their beginning and their end. In the beginning, they were what outcasts. Nobody believed what they believed they were chased out. Right? The outcome, the end of it is what they became so valued and so important that people said we can build a masjid at their site. So see how much people traveled in terms of not believing what they believe all the way into what they are people that we should idolize people that we should respect people that we should, there should be models, so we should build a masjid right next to them.
So Allah azza wa jal wants to show you that travel in belief, between completely rejecting
the message of Allah Zodac into completely adopting it. And that happened as a consequence of their sacrifice. Right, as a consequence of the price they were willing to pay, and how Allah azza wa jal took that sacrifice of theirs and transformed it into something that was far beyond what they could have imagined for themselves. And this is how Allah azza wa jal could favor you. If you're really sincere, right? If you are really sincere and you give up things for Allah azza wa jal, Allah will favor you beyond your own thinking and your own calculation. A lot of times the thing that stops us from that is our own selves. When we rely on our own selves, when we doubt Allah azza wa jal we
lose. But if you really favor Allah, Allah will favor you.
The last thing insha Allah Allah will say is before we leave this area is that if Luca Thea Rahim Allah He said, When they said that we will adopt a or build a masjid at their site, when they have died at their grave site at the cave. He said, What amerihome hada Muhammad Allah he says that decision of theirs is it praiseworthy or not? Had a fee he never He says there is doubt about it. Why? He said because also Allah is Allah Allah Azza wa sallam said that and Allah Allah Who though Nosara it the hadoo Cobra NBA he massage it, he says, May the curse of Allah be upon the people of the book The Jews and the Christians, they have turned the graves of the prophets into Masjid right?
So Allah azza wa jal here is not telling you that they have taken that site as a mistake to tell you that this is okay.
Why How do we understand that? Because the hadith of rasool Allah is Allah Allah Selim comes to tell you that this is never okay. Because he said that Allah azza wa jal had extended that curse to the people of the book The Jews and the Christians. How long have they have lived and been alive? What what what's wrong with whatever what is the wrong thing that they were doing? He said, When a prophet dies, they build the Masjid.
So what's wrong with this? When a prophet dies evil domestic or when somebody is saint or whatever, right or when he you build a masjid? That is a cause for you to start doing what should in the grave because you believe that that spot is so special, so when you build it over there, people when you go to the masjid, they're going to the grave as well. And when they ask Allah azza wa jal, they're also asking that that person as well. So that is the
opposite of to hate. So he or their actions of building the message at that site is not something that Allah told them to do is something that they decided to do. And the guidance of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam tells us that this was never okay. Because this may have happened at the time of the Christians. And he this incident may have happened at the time after isa Ali's cinema, or if not, could have happened at the time of the Jews, after Musa alayhis salam, or after Jacobo wherever, but whenever a prophet of Allah dies, it is haram for you to build a masjid over there for the sake of that grief. And that's different than the grave of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam
in Medina in case somebody is going to ask or say what about that? Right? Because it was not part of the Masjid. It's only in expansion. It was included but it was bested was not built, because the grave was there. The Masjid was there first. And then the grave of the prophets. Allah Salam came later, and then it was included later on. When the masjid was expanded at the time of the OMA yards. Right. That's when it happened. But to build a masjid specifically for the sake of the grave is something that incurs Allah's curse, because it goes against the respect that you should give to the grave the respect that you should give to the masjid and to hate.
Lo LM. So this is we've come to an idea we finished a 21 beat Nila Zodac and we will continue with
22 Beat Nila Aza next week.
I know it's very close to Asia if you only have one question, but like ultrafico otherwise, just write your question down. I'll try to give us inshallah more time next week with Nila such, anyone has any question.
With certain certainty we do not know. But there are some speculation that they were Christian.
Some speculation that they were Christian before the Roman Empire adopted Christianity. But yeah, but again, we can't be certain about it. But that's what people speculate and say. And that's because in history, that's what they refer to as these are the youth. And that's their story and that's the cave. Well lo Ed, the Zakum Allahu Allah Subhana Allah behenic A shadow laid a staff to work with him to learn
