eliminare million photo now and fan envy my LinkedIn was ignite illumine orrible al Amin.

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

So inshallah I just want to address a couple of points before we move on from the issue of a Shiva the last topic we talked about intercession.

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

And the first thing was an idea that came up while we're answering questions and Sasha was an idea that I wanted to include within the lesson itself.

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

Where Allah azza wa jal says, oh, yeah, we don't I mean, Dooney Allah, He made Iota Rahim Allah and Pharaoh who Moya coluna Allah issue for our winner in the law is where Allah says, And they worship instead of Allah who does not bring them harm nor benefit.

00:00:46--> 00:01:04

And they say to meaning to the ones that they are worshipping, they will intercede for us with Allah azza wa jal. Then Allah says pull to not be on Allah Habima Allah Allah movie somehow it will. He says, are you informing Allah? Of what he does not know in the heavens and the earth? Meaning what?

00:01:05--> 00:01:52

Meaning are these intercessors know they're saying they will intercede for us and Allah is telling them are you telling Allah about what he does not know. Like these are nothing but you're claiming that they will intercede for you. So if Allah is denying that claim, it means they can intercede. So, this idea tells you that intercession was not understood properly and not applied properly. Can be a gateway towards what *can Allah Allah did hell and towards Allah *can Allah azza wa jal that one of the reasons why people will commit *can Allah azza wa jal worship others with Allah is because they will say that these things that we worship, benefit us with him. They will speak on

00:01:52--> 00:02:29

our behalf, they will intervene, they'll ask for our sins to be forgiven. They'll protect us and they will elevate us, right? So if you don't understand the topic of intercession properly, it can lead you away from Allah azza wa jal, so you want to have a balance between those who reject it and those who miss apply it and exaggerated. So we have to affirm as we said in the lesson, that there is a Shiva that belongs to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is the best of Shafi and then to the other prophets of Allah and to the angels and to the righteous.

00:02:30--> 00:02:40

So that has to be affirmed. But unlike the word Leisha Farah, it's not a savior syndrome. That is it's not

00:02:42--> 00:03:14

I'll do whatever. And the shift will come and help me. That's it just like in the dunya whatever trouble I'll be in, I'll find someone if you have a father or a important relative, whatever trouble I'm in, he can come and intervene, and I'll be fine. So it doesn't work like that. Because Allah azza wa jal is the one who sets the limit of that Shiva, who can intercede who will be eligible for that intercession and when it can happen. So that's the difference. So

00:03:15--> 00:04:05

as we said, again, Shiva can be asked from Allah, Allah xojo, Allah give me the Shiva of Muhammad, Allah His Salatu was Salam. But while the prophet is dead, can you ask him for Shiva? No, we said that is inappropriate, there is no precedence for it. And it falls into either the category of Buddha or *can, Allah azza wa jal, and we've explained that. Now, we have also to understand that those who may ask the prophets, Allah Allah Sinha for shefa today, whether it is put into poems or into nasheeds, or into their dua, they're doing this as a way as an expression of their love for us all Allah salatu salam, right, because if you ask them about it, how they imagine it, it's an

00:04:05--> 00:04:23

expression of attachment to him, Ali salatu salam, right with me. So this is how they relate to him. So I love Muhammad sallahu wa salam, I'm very close to him. How do I express that Yasuda? Allah He sure Elena, you're also like if a Shiva this and this. So you understand that there's an emotional element to it.

00:04:24--> 00:04:37

So when you want to address it, until somebody who's doing that, that it's wrong, understand the emotional element in it. And that these emotions have to be redirected in ways that Allah has Zota loves

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

and we have to differentiate all of us, between two types of love. There is love that is Sherry and Sunni.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Meaning according to the Sharia of Allah as Zildjian he loves it. He legislates it he wants it according to the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and there is a love that is should keep it a ditch

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

You can be there.

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

You say, Okay, I'm not really getting it give me an example. I see the clearest example can be seen with isa Elisa. Right?

00:05:13--> 00:05:31

Are we supposed to love SRA Sinha? Yes. Why do we love a Sally's salon because he's what? A prophet of Allah among the best of the prophets of Allah. So it's an obligation on us to believe in that and also to love him accordingly. Right? You cannot be a Muslim and say I don't love

00:05:32--> 00:05:38

a Sally's Salam, you have to love him. They know the Christians, to the lover Isa.

00:05:39--> 00:06:14

They love and the Christians can come and tell you we love him more than you you guys love him. You say because we cry when we hear about him. We have his picture or what we imagined his picture is we talk about him more often. So that means that we love him more than you guys love him. We say that there is love that is, as we said, shutter a Sunni and there is an exaggerated love that Allah azza wa jal hates, and it will take you away from the one that you love. So is loving isa Alayhis Salam as God love that Allah loves

00:06:16--> 00:06:49

or love Him as the Son of God or as the creator of the heavens and the earth or as the one who will save you. Is that something that Allah loves? Okay, so now you've really deviated with that love and took it far into an extreme that had taken you away from ESA and take you away from Allah azza wa jal. So that's not a love that is Schutter en Sunni, but is what should keep and bid a right and it will lead you to practices that Allah hates and practices that ace Ali salaam himself renounces

00:06:50--> 00:07:10

that clear. So take another example Illuminati Talib and Al Bayt in general, we're supposed to love them, right? They're all the Allahu Akbar know that we're supposed to love them. I don't even know I'd be totally bizarre Sahabi the Prophet sallallahu Sallam loved him, Allah will bait belong to Pamet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Righteous Among them, deserves our love.

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

For you, the come some sects who will come and tell you we love them more than you do.

00:07:17--> 00:08:05

Because we cry when we mentioned Al Hussein flagellate ourselves, we you know, weep mentioned them, we have anniversaries for them, this and this of that. How about you guys? were to say, is that a love that Allah approves of? No, it's not. So that's a deviation. Right? It's a deviation. Right? Going away from Adebola butala. If Allah you will not be tolerated would see this he would condemn it and curse it. Hi, if l Bay tours or upon the Sonoma hematology center would see that they would just destroy disassociate themselves from it. So this is definitely what an extreme love, so your love can go to an extreme that can compete with loving Allah azza wa jal and that it no longer a

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

legitimate love.

00:08:07--> 00:08:51

So all of us Subhanallah could be prone to that. I mean, you're supposed to love your kids, right? But you could love your kids so much that that love could compete with Allah's love. Right? So that is a love with Allah azza wa jal and that's not permissible. So now when we go to Muhammad Ali who Salatu was Salam and those who love him so much that they use the Shiva to express that love we say the same thing. You could love Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the appropriate amount of love the legitimate amount of love, or you could love him so much that you start to what make him a partner with Allah azza wa jal and that is *can Allah azza wa jal. So there is a limit that you

00:08:51--> 00:09:26

cannot cross. Right? So we have to tell that person Yes love rasool Allah is Allah Allah wa salam. But that's not the appropriate expression of that love. There are other ways and other things that you can do. Right? So that's clear in sha Allah, the distinction between all types of love and that when love moves out of its bounds, is no longer approved by Allah azza wa jal and it does not lead to his bloody pleasure subhanho wa taala. And if you have questions about that insha Allah during the q&a, we could address it or we address it in sha Allah Now after the Shiva

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah Now continues with the foundations of the Sunnah, right? And then it says, well EMA new Annelle mercy had the JELA hurry June. Mattoon, Bina IV HCA fear Well, a hadith Allah deja at fie he will email will be in the Delica care in. He says unbelieving that the imposter the lying Messiah is going to appear. MK to goon Bina Aina he carefully written between his eyes careful disbeliever and the Hadith that came about him

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

And the man believed that this is going to happen

00:10:04--> 00:10:22

and he adds Rahima hola hola Ana a sub no Maria Maria is Salam yen zero for Yocto who will be bar below and that is Allah He Salam will descend and he will kill that imposter Messiah at the gate of loot or the gate inland.

00:10:23--> 00:11:00

So, here remember, Ahmed is talking about some of the signs of the Day of Judgment, the major signs of the Day of Judgment, right. And first he is talking about and mercy hood the gel and then he talks about a sub memoriam alayhi salam and he says, part of the foundations of the Sunnah because multiple Hadith scheme affirming this is to believe that these two things are going to happen. Now before I go into al merci hit the gel, I'll briefly touch on MIT. Okay, because there's some connection. So I'll briefly touch on and Maddie

00:11:01--> 00:11:07

even though Lima Muhammad does not talk about him, so ultimately there are some authentic hadith

00:11:08--> 00:11:33

telling us who al Maddy is and Maddie means what by the way, what does it mean? It means the guided the guided, right. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, or said about alma de el Mahi Umina Al Bayt al Maha de is from the household, or the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the children of Fatima and it says in the Hadith,

00:11:34--> 00:12:00

and their Hadith describe that he is a Khalifa that will be under my final days, and he will be a Muslim Khalifa. And he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Yummly kuiseb Icynene he will rule for seven years. He M little out of the Adler coma, Malia Jorah, He will fill the land with justice, as it was filled with injustice. Right.

00:12:02--> 00:12:50

And that prophecy from the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that Al Mahdi is a man, right? A normal man, but that Allah azza wa jal chooses them and selects him to be a leader who will be guided on the last day, or towards the end of times and they consider Aladdin to be one of the or the first major sign of the Day of Judgment because when l Maddie comes, he will be followed by the battle, the epic battle, we'll talk about it. And then he will be followed by the gel and then a sub memoriam descending so and Maddie is the first of those things that will happen. So his name is Mohammed Abdullah as Rasulullah sallallahu. Sydenham says you offer your smooth izmi was more be his

00:12:50--> 00:13:39

more OB. So his name will be Mohamed IGNOU Abdullah from the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we said from that family of Fatima he describes him physically as being a general Jabba. So he has kind of a large forehead and it might indicate that his hair has receded. So you can see that he has a big forehead a canal and acknowledge means that his nose is thin and pointed maybe or a bit pointed or elevated at the end arcana and and we said that he will rule for seven years and I'll Maddie right has no special powers no special ability except that he will be a leader for Muslims at a critical age. And he says Alia Salatu was Salam useless Allahu fi Lila Allah will

00:13:39--> 00:14:14

reform him or fix him in a night or overnight. So what is needed? It doesn't mean to reform or fix a lady in a night or overnight. It means to Allah Allah that Allah azza wa jal equips him, right. It takes him, allows him to repent, makes him more righteous or equips him to handle the affairs of an ummah overnight and that is a favor from Allah as the origin for that person, and for the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So prophet tells you that such a person will exist then.

00:14:16--> 00:14:58

Now there are some Hadith that are not explicit about and mighty. So some scholars can attribute that to Al Mahdi and say that's him. Other scholars are hesitant and some scholars say that's not an Maddy. So for instance, there's a famous Hadith where the prophets Allah Allah wa salam says Yoobao, only Roger in vain or Rockne will MACOM a person will be given the pledge of leadership of Khilafah been a renewal Mecca, meaning in Mecca between a rock in the corner of the black stone and the Maqam Ibrahim, just in that spot, somebody will be given the pledge of EDA, and then an army wants to come and invade and attack that person whoever had given pledge to them on Allah as though didn't will

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

destroy that army.

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

All right. So some say that said Maddie,

00:15:04--> 00:15:24

the person who will be given that pledge in the cabin is L Maddie. And one of the greatest signs that I'll Maddie is there is that Allah will destroy that army. Right? So then the scholars some of the scholars who will say that is in Matthew, although it's not explicit about him, they'll say don't follow anyone claiming that He's almighty until you see that sign.

00:15:25--> 00:15:47

Otherwise anybody could lie, and then we'll address that inshallah. Others say we don't know if that is in Matthew or not because the Hadith doesn't mention so Allahu Alem and others say no, that's not all MADI so we say Allahu Allah. But at least we know that he will come at the end of times. Now, with El Mahdi, there are some who reject him.

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

Like with everything, right, some who rejects him, and some who exaggerate them.

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

So those who reject Him.

00:15:57--> 00:16:03

They look first of all, first of all, at what Muslim sects believed about Al Mahdi and still believe

00:16:04--> 00:16:46

and they want to separate themselves from it as some young Muslim sect today, they still believe that Maddie is alive and he went into a cave as a baby. And he's still alive and kind of people were in communication with him and then that communication stopped. And they call it a label Surah Al Qaeda label hull Cobra, so he was a brief concealment than an extended concealment but eventually he will come out but he's alive. And whenever they mentioned him, they say agile Allahu Faraja May Allah brings relief to his ordeal so that he could exit quickly. So that's an extreme there had been extremes also when it came to Al Mahdi because when you have that belief, but not enough knowledge,

00:16:47--> 00:17:29

anyone can come and claim that he is what I am it's me you're waiting for me it's me. So I'll Maddie here I'll make it there. Whatever a person could fool and dupe the masses by pretending to be righteous by having you know followers by maybe even up maybe even having some supernatural things happen around him and could that could be the work of the devils or could be tricks. If he could convince enough people that he's in Maddie, enough people will follow him and it becomes a problem. So when some people looked at all of that they say we want to stop this. So there is no Maddie. And they also looked at how some people have turned l Maddie into a savior.

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

That is no matter what happens wait for L Maddie and he will solve everything for us. So that he said no, no. And Maddie, that's not a reality in Islam. So that's an extreme position. Because you have authentic hadith telling you exactly who Almighty is when he will come how many years he will rule in addition to other things in sha Allah will talk about that he will be performing. So you have to affirm what the prophets Allah Allah wa salam has affirmed

00:17:59--> 00:18:41

the exaggerations, dismiss them educate people about what is right and what is wrong. So we don't really fall our fall easily into the trap of everybody saying, I'm ill Maddie Amil Maddie, because we have what? checklist in a sense, right? What's your name? It has to be what Muhammad Rob Did Muhammad Abdullah, okay, what is he look like? Is he from the family of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam or not? And is this authenticated or not? And you look at the circumstances around that person. Before you give yourself to that belief, you look at the circumstances around him. And when you find that it actually leads into affirm certain belief and especially when you have the people of

00:18:41--> 00:19:21

knowledge around confirming that then you can say yes, he is and Maddie, but don't be duped easily by anyone who's saying I'm an Maddie, even if you begin to see dreams, or even if he begins to see dreams, the dreams on their own, are not enough to establish Well, Maddie is right. Otherwise the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam would have said, By the way, if you see enough dreams about him, it's him. He didn't give that as a sign, right? He didn't give dreams as a sign. What did he say? He says, that's his name. This is you know what he will do? This is how he looks right. So you look for one and two and three, and be cautious before you believe that about him and you have the people of

00:19:21--> 00:19:49

knowledge who also should confirm all of that, because Allah azza wa jal will guide them through what they know. And through people's Dakhla as well. Now, l Maddie will continue to live right during the time of the jail and during the time of Isa alayhis. Salam. We said that there's an epic battle that will take place and Matthew will be a leader in that battle. So he said Allah has Salatu was Salam that you are going to have an alliance with a room.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Okay, a room or a room. A room is a description of that European Christians, anyone from that site? Or who looks like

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

that those are a room. So you have an alliance with them and you will fight an enemy together, and you will win you and a room will win.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

And then he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam, and then the room will betray you.

00:20:16--> 00:20:30

And there will be a battle between you two, and that is that epic battle that take place. The other side refers to it as what? Armageddon, right? The Battle of Armageddon, right?

00:20:31--> 00:20:43

So that battle will take place, and he said, Alayhi Salatu was Salam that the Muslim army 1/3 of them will flee. Allah will not forgive them for that, right? And 1/3 will die.

00:20:45--> 00:20:54

And these are among the best martyrs. So imagine with me, the intensity of that battle, I when you have 1/3 of the Muslim army, running away,

00:20:56--> 00:21:04

what does that do? Right, and then 1/3 dying, right, and only 1/3 is left and that 1/3 is the third that wins the battle.

00:21:05--> 00:21:37

And that is a very decisive battle. And or fly solo is seldom right. He said that they will gather all I mean, all their might to fight you. And I don't remember the number of the army right now. But if you are kind of like multiplied it exceeds a million, that will bring a large army to fight you. And you will fight them as well. But alhamdulillah and then Maddie will be the leader in that in that battle. And the Muslims will win. As soon as they finish. They will hear the news of at the jealous out.

00:21:38--> 00:21:42

All right. So that's that's the sequence of it at the jail has come up.

00:21:43--> 00:21:56

Now the data, the jail, that's another story. The jail that's another fitna, right, because if you think that that barrel was bad, right, or it is intense, or it's difficult outcomes at the job,

00:21:57--> 00:22:07

and that the gel he said about him and he Salatu was Salam. There is no fitna from Adam Alayhis Salam till the day of judgment that is bigger than the judge.

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

So if you imagine

00:22:10--> 00:22:21

all the fitting in the world, and all the fitting that we have now right and if you look at the fitting that we have now you say to yourself, well Allah we're drowning in them, I don't know how we can be saved from them I

00:22:22--> 00:22:25

at the jail is greater than all the fitting that we have today.

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

So what does he say about him Allah He Salatu was Salam now first of all, at the jail is a human being or not

00:22:34--> 00:22:49

a human being a human, a human being, except that Allah azza wa jal had given him abilities as a test. A cat in fact, as a test first for him, but also as a test for everybody who's around.

00:22:51--> 00:22:56

And the Prophet saw you Sillim describes him, okay? He says that he's a short man.

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

Very, very curly hair.

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

He says about him also that he's I've had

00:23:05--> 00:23:19

pigeon toed, or like the feet. I mean, they're not straight, the kind of like a bull, right? So he walks like, like he's walking as if each foot or each leg is a bowl of hatch. That's what they call it.

00:23:21--> 00:23:33

And what is distinctive about him is that he has flaws in both eyes, our line iliamna. So when we say one eye, right, he has two eyes, he can only see with one one eye

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

is flat, and the other eye is protruding.

00:23:40--> 00:24:04

And he said also about Emelia salatu salam that His eye is green, the color of his eyes green. So one eye is protruding as if it's a floating grape. So it put a grape on the water and it floats, right. That's how protruding it is. The other one is flat, right? It's not protruding, and it's not sinking in. So there's something wrong with both of his eyes, but he could see only with one.

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

And also what is written between his eyes. The word cafe

00:24:11--> 00:24:21

or Kapha. Aurora. And then all the believers can see this whether they are literate or not. Allah as it allows them to see this for you.

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

What did he say about him Elia salatu salam, where does he come out from the beginning when he comes out from kick comes out from hoorah sang for a son is the old name that is giving for to Iran and that area to the east. Alright, so from that area, that's the beginning of it is appearance. And it becomes very visible between a sham and Iraq. So a sham is what? Syria Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon that is all a sham in Iraq. So when he's in between that one he becomes very visible with

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

All of his followers

00:25:02--> 00:25:18

and fathia meanwhile, Atha Masada he will corrupt to the right and corrupt to the left the Assam Oh prophets of Allah How fast is he? He says kill faith. He said Bara Torre. He says like the clouds being driven by the wind, meaning as fast as the wind.

00:25:19--> 00:25:53

So this is how fast he is. That what makes people and by the way, what does he claim when he's on Earth? He's claimed that he's what? Allah God, Allah, I am God, I'm your Lord, I am your Creator, I am God. That's what the gel will claim. The Why do people believe that? Because Allah azza wa jal gives him those abilities. Allah gives him those abilities, what those abilities what are those abilities that tend to convince people that He is God? So first of all right, the prophets only recently mentions it. He said,

00:25:54--> 00:26:38

that he will come to people and he will say, Do you believe in me, as what as God? He said, Yes, we believe in you. So he will command the sky to rain and to it will what? Rain and the earth to bring its crops and plants and it will do so. So who will leave them because he passes by he leaves them richer than they were before. Animals are fat, they have water, they have things to eat, meaning they are blessed. And he passes by a village or a town and he says, Do you believe in me? And what do they say? No, we don't believe in you. And he will command their crops to stabbed to stop growing, the rain stops, the sky stops raining. So he leaves them impoverished enroute and poor. So

00:26:38--> 00:27:00

they are far worse than before him and those who believe in Him, see blessings coming because they believed he will say to someone, I would say to his followers, he say Would you believe me? If I kill this person, split them in half and then put him back together? They'll say of course if you can kill someone and bring back to life, then you're what?

00:27:02--> 00:27:19

Who else could do this? Right? God, so he will do this. He will kill someone split it, split them in half. Move him far to the two House far away from each other so that people could see and then brings him back. Glue him back like that. And then he stands up.

00:27:21--> 00:27:28

And he will go to the Nomad, the Bedouin and he says, If I bring your father and mother back to life with you believe in me.

00:27:29--> 00:27:42

The what does he say? Yeah, of course, right. So we will command and then two devils will take the image of his parents and they will say Oh son, he is Allah azza wa jal believe in him, so obviously what he believes in.

00:27:43--> 00:28:10

So he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam. There will be no place on this earth except that he will reach except Mecca and Medina. And there's a hadith another Hadith that also says Al Aqsa and Otto okay, it adds to those. But when he wants to come to Mecca and Medina, he finds what, that there are angels, protecting Medina so he cannot enter.

00:28:11--> 00:28:23

But Subhanallah I mean, it's not enough for you to be in Medina to be protected because if you're in Medina, but you're not a believer, you'll go out to see him.

00:28:24--> 00:28:51

Right. So he says it's a lot he was in the photography world, Medina fella thought Raja fat is in the media will shake three times. So anyone who has hypocrisy in his heart will run out of Medina. So you must be strong to stay in Medina. So the place on its own is not enough until what? You really have Iman. Right. And also he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam that many women fall follow Him.

00:28:52--> 00:29:05

Many women will follow him to the extent that a man would go home, and will tie some of his relatives or his wife before he leaves out of the fear that she will sneak out to join at the job.

00:29:07--> 00:29:18

And if you want to think about it, I mean, what would a person do if the person hears God is right outside the city? God, go and see him

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

joining to understand the fitna because we may be talking about it today. And we may not think that is much of a fitna, but once you actually to imagine that God is outside and you know what he can do? And you know how he can help. And he know what he can show you. God is outside the intensity of the fitna where you just want to run and see. And the prophets OLALIA Sydenham, by the way, he also said And that's from the thick of the gel or the fitna of the gel, men semi abit the gel if you hear about it, the judge should you go and see him. We run away to the mountains right to the top of the mountains, because he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam because a person

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

He would be, would think that they are have such a strong faith, they would go and meet at the gel and they end up following Him because of all the things that he has with him. You know, he comes, he said, la salatu salam he comes, and he has what appears to be like Heaven and Hell next to him. And he wouldn't he's walking. He has Jana, and not beside him. Can you imagine? It's just really want you to imagine how difficult that will be.

00:30:29--> 00:31:04

Okay. And so if he's happy with someone who will put him in that Jana and that Jana is what the opposite is hell. And if he's angry with someone, he will throw him in what appears to be the fire and that fire is what the opposite there's water, he said, sallAllahu sallam, it's water. It's beautiful, cold water. But that is the appearance that he goes with. And at the gel is not simply strong, because he's only at the job because everybody believes in him. Everybody believes in him. And everybody defends him. And everybody, you know, attacks those who disbelieve in him.

00:31:06--> 00:31:37

And he said Alia salatu salam, he said, How long will he stay? He said, 40 days, 40 days, right? But 40 days a week where he can take control of this entire earth or whatever is left of it. We don't know when continents are still you know, inhabited or not. Whatever is left. He takes control of all of it except these spots that we talked about one, two, that's it. 1234. So you said 40 days they said oh prophets of Allah are these regular days. He says no. One day is like a year.

00:31:38--> 00:31:48

Actual year. And one day is like a month, one day is like a week, and the rest are regular days. So this is how long he will stay.

00:31:49--> 00:31:56

And everybody believes, and it's an intense fitna. And who's the only one right who's the only one that can kill it the

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

ASA a Sally's a Sally's.

00:32:02--> 00:32:06

Before that, also, there's an incident it says where

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

someone comes out to meet at the jail.

00:32:11--> 00:32:43

Protesting code the jail is so first he meets some of the helpers of the jail and he says, where is that person? Who is claiming that he's at the jail? Or his mercy? So these believers in the gel, they say, Oh, you don't believe in our Rob? He says no, I don't take me to see him or something like that. So they take him to see at the gel. And he said, You're the one who Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this and this and this about, he turns to his followers, that gel, the gel will say and he says if I kill this man,

00:32:44--> 00:33:23

and then put him back together and bring him back to life, would you believe in me, they say yes, of all belief will intensify. So he takes this man, and he kills him, right? And he then brings him back to life. And he says, See, and but he also he predicts and he says, I'll bring him back to life. But even after that, he's not gonna believe in me. So he brings them back to life. And he says to His followers, see, and they say we testify that you are Allah that You are the rub. But that person who is brought back to life, he says, Now I know more than before, that you're at the jail that the Prophet sallallahu selama talked about. So he wants to go and kill him again. And the

00:33:23--> 00:33:59

Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He says that Allah as it will protect him will be shielded with copper along all of his body, he cannot reach him. See, we'll take him by the feet and throw him in what appears to be hell, but it's not. And then the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam said, He will not be able to kill anybody afterwards, he will not be able to kill anybody afterwards, meaning that's the last person he could kill. And that is the signal the beginning of his loss of power, because he can't kill anybody. And then ASA Alayhis Salam descends to kill him. We'll talk about a Sallys. And I'm shortly.

00:34:01--> 00:34:43

But before we move on to isa alayhis, salam, and the death of the JAL, there is also what we call the fifth, the fifth the understanding of the fitna of the gel, because the gel is not just simply about a man who is going to come and he can do these things. It's also about learning about fitna altogether and how to protect yourself from fitna. So how do first of all, how do you protect yourself from the gel? What are the things that you could do to protect yourself from the gel? So first of all, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He said that if you meet him, you read what Surah or the beginning of what Surah Elka Surah Alkaff. So this is something that if you're afraid about the

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

fitna of the devil, you go back to Surah til calf, and you memorize at least the last 10 years in it, and you try to understand what it means, right? And how Allah azza wa jal protects the people of the cave and how Allah azza wa jal

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

You know, no talks to Musa and then God nine or what have you because in it there is guidance and can protect you from danger. So that's that's one. Second of all there is the fear of avoiding the fitna. Don't not testing yourself and not bringing yourself closest to what could tempt you even if you think that your Eman is strong. If you think that you have all the answers, there's a difference between finding yourself in the fitna

00:35:27--> 00:36:09

because it was unavoidable, and another where you seek it yourself. So if you seek the fitna yourself, who had given you a guarantee that your heart is not going to change, that you're not going to see something that will not change your mind that she thought will not tempt you that a weakness of yours in mind that is not really apparent to you will resurface. And how many of us have weaknesses that we're not aware of that resurface. All right. So you think that you're strong, but when it comes to the fitna of money, you'd find yourself weak. I didn't think that I was that weak, but now you're weak. There's something that you and I did not treat. So avoiding a fitna is one of

00:36:09--> 00:36:14

the best ways I mean, staying away from it to protect yourself from that fitna.

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

Also knowledge about the gel, the more that you know.

00:36:19--> 00:36:59

And the more that you apply what you know, the more that Allah azza wa jal will protect you. So that man, hope the prophets Allah Allah wa salam said he is among the greatest witnesses with Allah azza wa jal, monogamy, Nasi shahada, when he goes to meet at the jail and confront him, how did he know that he was at the jail? Because he learned what Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, he says you're the one that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us about. So the more that you know, the more that you will be able to avoid the fitness in general all the Phaeton and at the gym in particular, that's why Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam would warn them time after time about the gel until actually some of

00:36:59--> 00:37:09

us have we're afraid that the agenda is close by, he's just going to appear of how many times the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had mentioned him and warn people about him.

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

Another is that despite despite

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

the evidence that Allah zoton had given that Dogen is imposter

00:37:20--> 00:37:42

people are still willing to believe in him as a guide. So for the believers, they could see between his eyes written what caffeine so that's very clear proof that he's a Kaffir type even if a person is a non believer, Is there proof in the gel physically, that he is not God?

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

But what is this roof?

00:37:46--> 00:38:30

Defects okay, that he is not handsome, he is not complete and there is a defect in his body and in his eyes. So when you know about Allah azza wa jal what you know about Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, says I've mentioned so many things about the gel I've talked to you a lot about at the gel had the Kashi to Allah tequila I said until I am afraid that you will not remember all of this. For in any if it's difficult for you then know that Allah azza wa jal is not our is not one night, that if you forget all the things that the Prophet Salah cinema had said, even if you forget all the things we talked about today, where he's going to come out, who will follow him when he's

00:38:30--> 00:38:45

going to die, all of this forget all of this. Remember one thing Allah is now what? He's not our because the three very first thing that you could tell him if you see him and he's claiming that he is God is what go and fix yourself.

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

Go and fix yourself.

00:38:50--> 00:38:57

So if he cannot, Allah has noted had given you a contradiction, physical contradiction that this cannot be God.

00:38:58--> 00:39:34

For you, why does Allah azza wa jal give him that ability we said it is a test at this to do what at this to see Do you believe in Allah Sharia? Or do you believe in the supernatural in front of you when it contradicts Allah Shetty? I because this person goes against the Quran and Sunnah. And he says, I am God and the Quran tells you you cannot believe in that. But he's reviving the dead. The Quran, sunnah tells you I cannot believe you cannot believe in that. But he's asking for the sky to rain and trains. How do you reconcile all of this is to know that supernatural ability on its own is not sufficient to prove that someone is right or wrong.

00:39:35--> 00:39:42

So if someone who today disappears from one place to the other and I mean genuinely disappears. Is that enough proof that he's a prophet?

00:39:43--> 00:39:49

Or beloved by Allah as origin? So what could be the explanation behind them disappearing from one place to the other?

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

magic shell team could carry him that we have an explanation right? So that in itself is no indication that someone is fake?

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

But by Allah was not a weenie by Allah azza wa jal as some of the set of have said, If you see someone walking on water, don't believe that he's already of Allah azza wa jal until you do it, see if he agrees with the Quran and Sunnah or not. Or if you see him flying in the air, like physically see him flying in the air don't believe that he's a willy until you see that he agrees with the Quran and Sunnah. If not, you need to dismiss him. So supernatural ability, no matter what he does, is not enough on its own to convince you that he is righteous, let alone that He is God. So if you see him in that created form, he's a human being. Flood. It says in the Hadith, also, he is sterile

00:40:46--> 00:41:01

there, you will Abdullah, he does not have children, that is another flaw. He cannot have children. It says if that's the case, while you believe that this flawed being could be the creator, if he cannot fix himself, and he comes in this flawed, ugly form.

00:41:02--> 00:41:11

Okay. Another thing insha Allah maybe that's the last thing we'll mention about the gel kind of like benefits that come from it is that,

00:41:12--> 00:41:18

as I was thinking about a thing, that those who are materialists, atheists

00:41:19--> 00:41:24

are most vulnerable to a belief in the gel than those who are not follow Allah.

00:41:25--> 00:41:38

That is so because as a person that you believe in the supernatural, you have an explanation for what the judge does, right? Right. Okay. If a person does not believe in supernatural at all,

00:41:39--> 00:41:55

only in matter, and what he sees in what he feels, and he tries to interpret everything, as there's an scientific explanation to it seems like if at the gel comes to such a person, he says, I'm going to kill someone in front of you right now, when bringing back to life.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

What would be a scientific explanation to that?

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


00:42:01--> 00:42:04

like, I can kill him, kill him actually kill him separate?

00:42:06--> 00:42:17

The two parts of the body as far as the arrow can be thrown, meaning very far, and then bring it back? Can science bring people to life like that?

00:42:18--> 00:42:51

Or if he says to the sky rain, and it trains, what scientific explains change you have for this. So if he actually can perform these separate supernatural acts, and he is and will be a person who does not believe in the supernatural, but only in matter, and in science, his belief shatters, there's nothing to explain any of this. The only thing that is left for them is to believe that this Bing is honest and what he's saying, because I haven't seen anything like that before. And I have nothing that can account for this and explain it. What is left?

00:42:52--> 00:43:03

He's he's right. He must be because he's doing things that are beyond what I thought possible. I believe we're on the other hand, you see all of these things and you see what I know about.

00:43:05--> 00:43:45

I have an explanation already. I know that there is a world of jinn, I know Allah could enable some people to do miraculous what seems to be like miraculous things out of a test or as a test for us. But that does not mean that they are right. So you have an explanation because you believe in the supernatural. They don't have an explanation at all because they disbelieve in all of it. So at the gel when he comes, he will be able to attract those hearts and well now I don't know. By that time, will we have atheists, right? But I'm just telling you that when a person disbelieved and that sight of reality and the supernatural is a reality, your whole belief system could be shattered if you see

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

things that you cannot explain. Right.

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

And yeah, he says now

00:43:51--> 00:43:56

on hammock Allah Allah He ace of new millennium will descend and will kill him.

00:43:58--> 00:44:19

So he said nobody um he said Allah He is Salatu was Salam Isa will descend in that minority in vitae, Aisha Ki, the image P says at the White minaret east of Damascus. So he will descend there, and he describes him and he he is Salatu was Salam that angels will be carry him that he will be wearing yellowish garments.

00:44:20--> 00:44:24

And then he will head alayhis salam to Jerusalem.

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

So in Jerusalem, right, the Muslims are there

00:44:29--> 00:44:33

and they're fighting at the jail and his army and then Maddie is there

00:44:34--> 00:44:39

and ESA descends and it comes time for Fajr Salah.

00:44:40--> 00:45:00

So that will fit you and Allah the prophets Allah is hitting them that's how we know that Maddie is there fire Kuru Amuro horn melody the cut them for Selena. So a lady who is there, Amir will say to Asa Alayhis Salam, you lead the Salah. So that's what Fajr right. So as Ali he said

00:45:00--> 00:45:28

AMI says your Imam will be from you to crema to Allah. He had the hill OMA Allah's honor for this ummah. So of course, right when you see ASA, and he's down, who's the one who's supposed to lead the Salah? So you think, of course you have a prophet who is better suited than him to be the Imam. But isa Ali Salam wants to show that what know that he had come to as a follower of Rasulullah sallallahu it was hidden right? So that's why some some of the

00:45:30--> 00:45:51

some of L LM why they deduce from that or kind of that created a puzzle. And they would say you who is the prophet who is both a prophet and Sahabi in a sense, right? Because as Ali Salam saw Muhammad Ali salatu salam, right, he saw him, but he's not dead. Like all the other prophets of Allah azza wa jal they're dead.

00:45:52--> 00:46:21

But isa Ali Salam he saw him and he was still alive so who's a prophet and also hobby as well? Right a lot so they see that's a Sally said I'm so isa descent and then in Matthew leads the sola sola till failure. So that's the first Salah that SLA Salam will pray there in Jerusalem, and then they will open the gates and Rasul Allah has a lot he was sent him says about, he said that he says that any disbeliever, who smells or gets to smell, a Salah is Salam will die.

00:46:22--> 00:46:33

And that includes the messenger. So when mercy had the GLCs gets the sight of Isa Ali salaam, he runs away, because he knows that it's over. It's done.

00:46:34--> 00:47:19

And if we were to leave him in a Salah Salem does not go after him, he would die. But acla Salam goes after him, and he catches up with him, as he says be Barbie loot. So a load is a city in Palestine. So bad blood could be the gate of load or a gate in load to Allahu Allah. But a load is a city in Palestine. So he catches up with him in a load, and he Pierce's him with a spear and he kills him. Right? And that is the end of the gel. That's how he terminates at the jail. And then everybody afterwards, right, everybody afterwards will believe in a Sallys Salam, as a prophet of Allah, and all the millall all the different religions all will disappear, and there will only be

00:47:19--> 00:47:22

one religion, which is the religion of Islam.

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

And by the way, also something that I forgot to mention about at the jail, he says, like, why, why do people believe in him so much?

00:47:33--> 00:48:23

One of the reasons you could say it's, it's economic as well, he said, alayhi salatu salam is that before the gel comes, there'll be three years of famine and drought. So for the first year, 1/3 of the rain and crops will stop the 1/3 of the rain, and you will rain will stop. So the crops will be affected. Because of that, the second year, two thirds of the rain that falls on earth will stop and the crops 2/3 of them will also stop the third year, all of the rain will stop for one year. And all the crops will stop. Just imagine, right? When it stops raining. Anyone we you know, went through Corona and COVID and what have you remember some of the those kind of shortages of food here and

00:48:23--> 00:48:44

there and what that did to us? So imagine and then the war here and the war there and then decrease in wheat and decrease in barley and whatnot, and what that does to us into the prices for you? Because that's that's the the benefit of going through these crises, right. It's just you begin to relate what to what's going to happen later. So if no crops and Earth are produced in one year, what happens?

00:48:45--> 00:49:15

Subhanallah right, not only prices, deaths, also despair. So when the job's done at the end of this comes, and he says to a village, do you believe in me? And they say yes, and he allows it to rain, and it trains? What is that going to do? Of course, I will believe in you because I'm dying of hunger. Right? I don't have anything to eat. And I've heard about you blessing these lands. And then you are here, and I can see you blessing all of us, of course, your God and not only God, I'll die for you.

00:49:16--> 00:49:32

That's, that's that's how hard it is. Right? And that's why when we said a lot of women will go to join him because, um, women tend to be more emotional than men. So if you know that God is there, he will talk to you he will listen to you. Of course, it's a very emotional

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

state. And that's why more of them will go and follow the journey.

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

So he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam, by the way as as a way of conclusion about an Malady and then after isa Alayhis Salam is that when Maddie comes He fills the earth with justice, as it was filled with injustice and then Allah also he said, la Salatu was Salam that Allah will bless this earth. Now when did when is this exactly is it in

00:50:00--> 00:50:18

Before a succumbs, or after isa comes when he talks about in matadi. I do not know. But he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam that the earth will be so blessed that people will come and they say to Almighty give us money, and he will just give him without account. Take as much as you need right heaps and heaps of money if you want money.

00:50:20--> 00:50:37

After Issa Ali has said, um, of course comes here, Julian George, but he doesn't talk about here Julian Maduro. So maybe we'll talk about them next time or maybe not. But just I want to talk about the blessing period, after the demise of Georgian Jude, he said Alia Salatu was Salam that ASA will live for 40 years.

00:50:38--> 00:51:03

A CIO will leave la salon for 40 years and then he will die and Muslims and bury him and pray janazah for him, but during those 40 years, that is a period of peace and abundance, where Allah as it will bless it, sir, there is no better more blessed period on this earth, then when a Sally's Salam will come. And one main reason for that is that there is only Eman on this earth and there is no disbelief.

00:51:04--> 00:51:44

Nobody believes in other than Allah Azza to know and worships other than Allah Zota. And because he says there, they know that the day of judgment is near. So they're not worried about money, they're not worried about greed, they worried about pleasing Allah as though did so Allah blesses the crops on this earth. So what would normally for to be enough for one person will be enough return? It'd be huge or be enough for 10. And he said, Allah is it Salatu was Salam, Allah will take or extract the enmity from this earth. So you will have the Tiger and the Wolf, you know, grazing with or sitting beside the rabbit and the gazelle. There's no enmity between them on this earth, not between animals

00:51:44--> 00:52:26

and not between human beings as well. And even you to the extent at the time of SRA Salam is that you want to give people money, they say we're not interested in money anymore, as Sajida a prostration, to Allah as Odin is dearer to them than the money, the golden silver that you could give to them. So it's an incredible time that will be at the time of Isa Alayhis Salam while he's alive. But of course what precedes that are really trials and tribulations and a lot of fitna, right, so we'll see in sha Allah, maybe we could talk about hydrogen Madrid briefly next time, but that is what I had about briefly about the MADI and then the gel and then as of memoriam. So want to

00:52:26--> 00:52:36

pause here in sha Allah, and see if you guys have questions, or maybe something that I've missed, maybe Inshallah, you could remind me, and we can add it to our discussion today, inshallah.

00:52:38--> 00:53:21

So anything I've missed, I know there's more height. And by the way, the gel is alive today or not. Yeah, he's alive. So there's a Hadith from the prophets, Ali Salam, I think it's Sahih Muslim, where some of this harbor was lost, one of the Sahaba was lost in the sea. And he came upon an island and then you know, et cetera, et cetera. And then he saw the gel being tied up in that island, and the gel was telling him, what happened to this, what happened to this and he included in that, what happened, did Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam have here? He said, Yes, Mohamed Salah was in the map here. He asked him about Hayato Maria, the leak of Maria, which is leaking in, in Philistine he says, Did

00:53:21--> 00:54:00

it dry it dry out yet? He says no, it's not yet. He says it's gonna dry out. So he's talking about a narrow VSAN? He says, the palm trees of the sun, he says, Are they dead? Or is it? I'm not sure exactly. But he said what happened to it? And he said he's still there. And he said, No, it's something's going to happen to it. See, he was asking the gel about science. What's going to happen to understand? Is it time for him to come out? Or not yet? Right? So he's alive but he's being tied up now where exactly Allah knows. But when Allah allows it, he's going to come out and when he comes out he's going to wreak havoc and people will follow him except the believers

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

like shaftless scammed the room and see if anybody here on my left, nobody nobody nobody. Nobody, nobody. Okay, Stranger my buddy would have questions right? Now you don't have to have questions maybe it's like okay, that's too much we just want to go home

00:54:28--> 00:54:32

now um yeah Julian modules are in existence now. We don't know where they are

00:54:39--> 00:54:39


00:54:44--> 00:54:49

oh, so he said that does not cease to be an OB is always an OB, right?

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

No, no, he gets away but does not get a new Sharia. Like it's not Elaine new Sharia except the Sharia and that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talked about

00:55:00--> 00:55:28

attend Zulu for extra Celebi breaks the cross he you know kills the pig does not accept any religion except Islam so that yeah happens then. But he's a prophet of Allah asserted that still receives revelation because it does say for instance when he admitted my God will come, Allah will tell ASA I've let slaves in mind which has the hydrogen George come out and no one has the power to fight them. So he tells him and then it tells you also in the Hadith that a Salah ibrid It is Salam will

00:55:29--> 00:55:41

after after the battle with the JAL he will sit with Muslims and he will tell them about their stations and Jana, you will be in Jana here you will be in Jana here you will be in Jana here. So a prophet of Allah azza wa jal till the end

00:55:46--> 00:55:57

Yeah, and he's a follower of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but a prophet as well. So his Sharia is the shadow Sharia of Muhammad does not get canceled, but he's a prophet following the Sharia of Muhammad Ali's

00:56:04--> 00:56:18

Yes, these are people that survived the fitna Yeah and I mean yeah as the your children or grandchildren are here right? Yeah, yeah. I mean yeah, I mean, it may be you it's not very likely that you will see him Allah Allah but

00:56:21--> 00:56:26

yeah, but if you passed all of this right, well, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

00:56:28--> 00:56:28


00:56:29--> 00:56:30

Okay, yes

00:56:39--> 00:56:55

their bill will come after this, right that towards the end to after that, because it's gonna because see, Dabo will put a sign on people right believe or disbelieve, right. So at the time of ESA, there are no disbelievers. So that comes after? And they say it's going to be kind of

00:56:56--> 00:57:14

around around that sun rising from the what is it rise from the West, right? So it's rising from this and then because at that point, you'll be able to tell people right apparently physically who's a believer and who's not. But that does not happen at the time of ESA so later

00:57:20--> 00:57:39

Yes, yes. So I declined. So after ASA Alayhis Salam, right after that golden period, people will start losing gradually their faith until eventually there will be no believers on this earth and only disbelievers so that's the great period of decline and as a decline that there is no what reversal to that said it has to happen that way.

00:57:41--> 00:57:41


00:57:50--> 00:58:22

the gel doesn't have to ask Allah for it, Allah gives him that ability. So Allah Adam, you know, he could have had had it you know, from a very young age that he could notice with himself that's speculative on my part, right? He could notice that if he says this to happen, it will happen. So Allah gives them that ability that if you ask for this, it's going to happen if you wish for this is going to happen if you command this if you kill something he could bring it back. So he doesn't have to physically consciously explicitly asked for it he just does it or wants it and it happens. Yeah

00:58:25--> 00:58:28

he's a disbeliever by the fact that he claims that he is a

00:58:30--> 00:58:39

Allah azza wa jal himself either you're an ad whether he believes but still claims or he disbelieves in either way, he's a disbeliever right

00:58:41--> 00:58:41


00:58:52--> 00:59:16

I don't know I love Adam. I don't know exactly right. So those seven that the prophets only Salam said talked about, are they before that epic battle before the jail post at the jail? How do they actually square with the rain? Let's call it the rain or the presence of a Salah Salem? I'm not exactly sure he just told us about seven years for a lady 44 A Sally's salon, but I don't know how that intersects.

00:59:18--> 00:59:18


00:59:25--> 00:59:32

He said, God, let me model a Toyota. He says he's like a great being like or a great figure that he saw. So

00:59:33--> 00:59:58

this will law Allah may be a form that the gel took, but in the knee takes another form later on. Right. And that could be related a low Adam to either magic or to the devils or to the shouty, but the form that he saw him in is not exactly the form that he'll appear in. So although Adam, I don't know the why here this way, and why when we see him, he's going to be different, but that's what he described.

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


01:00:06--> 01:00:46

Now, now, so the jail before he comes, there should be a shortage of shortage of knowledge, decrease of knowledge. Right. And that could be related to the droughts that we talked about tribulations that we talked about the battles that we talked about a lot of injustice happening. So there is a decrease in knowledge and people will know less about him. And that's why they some some have said it's important to keep the mention of the jail alive and to know about him as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam kept worth mentioning and warning people about the jail so that you save yourself from it. Who knows, right? Maybe the information that you pass on to your family or your loved ones, keeps it

01:00:46--> 01:00:54

stays alive and it saves someone right? So that's why it's keeps it's important to keep transmitting that information along.

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

It says the first step, the first step, yeah, the first

01:01:08--> 01:01:10

for what so little caffeine says.

01:01:13--> 01:01:15

Okay, so anyone else who says my last scam?

01:01:17--> 01:01:24

No, please hire insha Allah. Allahu Allah Subhana Allah will become like a shadow Knight. I learned the stuff people go to him to learn
