Good. Okay, this is Mila.
Mila and hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah wa sahbihi wa sallam,
bien de la tonight we will conclude the story of Adam alayhis salaam and move into the story of Noah and see inshallah, where that takes us. So with the story of Adam, they were left a couple of questions last time and Charlotte will try to answer and by then we will conclude his story because Neela
one of these questions was, how was the shaytaan able to communicate and whisper to Adam after Allah azza wa jal had cast him away from Jenna
is a Lhasa says, you know, what did you mean half a Nakajima, you know, he cast the atom, I cast the shaytaan away. That's before Adams exit. So Adam is still in Jenna. So how was he able to whisper?
No. Now the the best answer to this the best answer to this which will remain as the best answer is Allah knows best as the vehicle by which the shaytaan was able to communicate and whisper to Adam because Allah doesn't tell us and His Prophet sallallahu wasallam doesn't tell us and the Sahaba Do not ask. And so you know that it's not important that somehow it happened, somehow it happened. But that it's not that important. But in case you know, someone is really wondering or bothered by it, you know, how was he able to communicate? Well, we can speculate and say, and I can, you know, inshallah, share with you two possibilities of how that may have happened.
One of them
is that the shaytan, though he was removed from Jenna,
he was able to approach it, right? approach the Warriors agenda or be outside and still talk to Adam. And Adam could hear him and talk back to him. So that's possible across the border of agenda. So he's not inside. He's outside how distant he is, we don't know. But he was able to communicate with Adam and Adam could communicate with him. So that's a possibility could come close to it, but he could not enter it. Now you say is there is he any parallel or anything similar to it that we can find in the Koran? Say yes. So when Allah describes in the Day of Judgment, what is now does have one Nadia's habit agenda when the people have now will call upon the people of gender, and they will
talk to them. And people of gender will call upon the people of Hellfire, and they will talk to them. Remember that? So that people have held fire, they will ask and give us some water.
And the people have agenda they will be asking the people of Hellfire Did you find the promise of Allah to be true? Now, of course, if you if you think about it, Jenna is huge. It's not like this earth is you know, Subhana Allah many, many, many times, you know, greater than this earth and Hellfire as well. And a person could be in the middle of Jenna and a person could be in the middle of Hellfire, yet Allah could facilitate communication. Right? It's possible. So that could happen on the Day of Judgment, it doesn't mean that they can talk all the time, a low atom, but at that moment, it was possible for them to talk. So it's possible also for a person to be outside of
gender, not inside of it outside of gender, and communicate with people who are inside and vice versa. So that's a possibility, right? And it's reasonable.
The other possibility
is that Allah azza wa jal could have set out all the shaytaan you are to exit from gender, this is not your home, you cannot stay here. But then Allah could have allowed him for a certain period to pass through it, but not stay.
For him for that purpose for him to be able to communicate with Adam, and whisper to him. So the shaitaan could have, you know, said to himself, okay, I'm, I'm being driven out of Jenna, but Am I not allowed entry at all. So he could try to enter and if the angels do not stop him, and if I find himself, not prevented in any way from entering, he knows that he's still allowed to enter, so he can pass through. But he cannot stay
until a certain period where Allah says, and also now you cannot even pass through it. So it's a possibility. I find the first one a stronger possibility, but then ultimately, do we know?
We don't know. So what is it we say Allah Adam, how that happened? What is most important is that it happened and the consequences of it the exchange, and the consequence.
The other question was, was a blease remember the question that was asked after Asia. So when Allah azza wa jal commanded the angels to Prostrate to Adam and Eve
Salam. He says, well, all this command was to the angels of Allah Iblees. Was he an angel?
He was not an angel. So this is not a command for him. So is that a right a right rationale? Of course we know that it's not but is that a rat right rationale? Is that a valid argument that this was not a command for a police to prostrate to Allah? xojo when we say No, that's not true. say okay, why is that not true? I say first of all, because a police understood it to be a command. And Allah azzawajal tells the police when he talks that to him, what is the thing that stopped you from prostrating to him after I have commanded you?
Allah says in the Quran, what is the thing that stopped you from prostrating to him? After I have commanded you? If Omar took it, Amar took me I this command was for you, too.
So what is the thing that stopped you then he gives his reasons. So this was a command from Allah and Allah understood this, this to be a command to a police. And a police did not object by saying, Well, it wasn't to me, at least could have said Well, it wasn't it wasn't directed at me. So obviously, this was for the angels. This was not my no he understood that was a key man for him as well as the angels. So why does Allah say for instance, to the angels, and doesn't specify for the angels and a police for the angels and you who are among the jinn
because if at least was from or among worshipping among the angels, he was in the company of angels. So you can call upon a people by the dominant group in them even though you know there could be 123 or more who are not members of that group, but you can call upon them by the dominant members of that group. So linguistically, that is valid
for loja that is Allah as the origin for instance, me he is speak to a group of men and woman, and he will address them in the masculine.
Does that mean that the woman are excluded? Yeah, you have Latina man with a woman say, well, that's not us know, everybody is included. Everybody is included. So in the same fashion, and in the same way, we want to allow as little commands the angels to prostrate to add Melissa lamb, and he believes is among them, he understands and they understand that he's included in that commit. And in this would probably not have been the first time when I had given him such a command. But it was the last time because he of course, rebelled. So that's clear, of course, that he was member a member he was not, he was not an angel, because the angels are created from what
light and the jinn are created for created from fire. So there are different natures. So he wasn't an angel. He was from the beginning, a jinn from a different nature. He was only worshiping with the angels but included in that address because Allah zildjian because he was among them and Eliza Jen commanded both of them by that single command.
The other question also that came up, which we I think we may have actually touched on it is did Allah as Odin extract Adams progeny from him?
Adam progeny from him? Yeah, Allah did. And there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
related to the area where either Hazara boeckmann Benny Adam Emilio hora, him Surya Tahoma shadow Allah unfussy him, when Allah extracted the progeny of Adam from his back. And he Allah addressed all of them, meaning all of them, what all of us, all the children of Adam, till the Day of Judgment, every single human being was going to live a lot took him from the back of Adam, and it says in the Hadith, that he spread them all on a playing field. And that field is the field of what are the plain of what out of on this earth? So is spread everybody? And then Allah xojo ask them LS to be or become, Am I not your Rob? carlu Bella shahina. So everyone said all of us said Bella
shahidan indeed we witness that you are our rug. So Allah has total one that confirmation so that on the Day of Judgment, we do not say that we did not know this, that we did not know this. So you say to yourself, but I don't remember it. Do you remember it? And you can remember as it's taking place? No. So you say I will I do not remember it. So what's the benefit of that happening?
First of all, Allah azza wa jal tells you about it in the Koran so since he tells you about it, it's as if you remember it has certain
You with me? So alien, though you do not remember it? It actually happened. How do you know because Allah said it says if you remember it,
Second of all Allah azza wa jal put a trace of that knowledge in your fitrah.
So you know some of them have a city, they say that that is in reference to the fifth Allah.
That is Allah azzawajal corvara Kula insane you know Allah azza wa jal had asked every human being through their fifth law, and their fifth law says, yes, you are our RUP.
So first of all, it's happened and the law tells you about it. So we're sure that it has happened and a trace of it remains in your fifth law. That is when you ask your fifth Allah is Allah azza wa jal? Do I have a god? Do I have a creator? What is your physical? I say? Yes.
Is that creator one? Is he greater than anything that I know greater than myself? Yes or no? Yes, that's what fidra will always say that. So that's the trace of that encounter between you and Allah as the origin where every single human being has said yes, to the majesty of Allah has Odin and that he is Lord and He is, or Rob subhanho, wa Taala.
Now, Allah azza wa jal, before we conclude the story of Adam, Allah, as the origin tells us about this story of the two children of Adam,
what to do, and even a bad night, Adam will help the youth quarterback or banner. Tell him the story, the true story
of the two children of Adam when they put forward an offering.
in the Bible, they're called what Cain and Abel, but we don't really know names. Right? Why is that we don't really know their names, because we don't know if the People of the Book have actually recorded that accurately or not. They could be Cain and Abel corbeil and have been they could be or maybe not, and we don't really, really know their names. So somebody tells you, what are their names? What do you say? I don't know. I don't know it possible, maybe that but I do not know, because we do not cannot trust the transmission of the People of the Book, nor can we deny it. We don't have anything in the Quran and the Sunnah, to reject those names, nor to confirm them. So we
don't know if they are copied and heavy, could be the names of two other people or it could be their names.
And also, the Quran does not tell you about the background. Interestingly, why they're putting an offering. It doesn't tell you, whether you're trying to settle what they're trying to decide. It doesn't tell you biblically, what is it? Well, they wanted to get married. Right? And there was this beautiful woman and you know, they were supposed to be this man. No, he wanted, the other men wanted it. So they put an offering to see which of the two would be accepted, so he can marry her. But the Quran doesn't tell you, he leaves it, you know, open, it could be that or it could be something else. And again, it's not important.
What is important, what happens,
that happens in the story, and the benefit that you get from it. So both of them put an offering. And again, it doesn't tell you what the offering is. Again, the Bible it does discuss it, but it does not matter again. What it is photocopy I mean, I had him Allah Muta. cobalamin, Allah one's offering was accepted and the other was not so they're putting this offering, giving it to Allah zildjian. One offering was accepted. And the other was not accepted.
What is the one? The sore loser? What does he say?
What is it? What is he to tell his wife? How does he threaten his brother? Khalid after linuxes I'm gonna kill you.
I'm going to kill you. So here he is filled with jealousy. How is it that Allah is going to accept it from you and you're going to get whatever it is that you are going to get? and not me? says I'm going to kill you.
has grown brother said Karla. innama. Taco Bell luminometer theme, is Allah only accepts from the pious and that is an answer. Subhana Allah that that is perfect. Because he's saying, why are you upset with me?
Really, why are you upset with me? Who is the one who accepted the offering from me? Allah as a surgeon. And why did he accept that offering for me and not from you? But was that it was taqwa tough, what was the matter? So why you're angry with me and not angry with yourself that you did not have enough Depo if you did, allow it except you're offering instead of mine.
Then he said, he says, if you're going to extend your hand to kill me, I'm not going to extend my hand to kill you. I want you to what you ended to have your sin and my sin. That is if you decide to actually kill, I'm not going to push back.
You can tempt the jealousy his weakness pushed him to kill his brother, and he regretted what he has done. And you know the story that Allah has just sent two crows and they fought with each other one killer.
The other because till that moment will law who lm till that moment, no one has died on this earth. Till that moment, no one has died, so they did not know, or he did not know what to do with his brother. So Allah zildjian was to teach him how to honor his brother bow by burying him. So he sends two crows and they fight, he kills them, one CRO, kills the other, and then he digs a hole for him, and he buries him. And by that he shows him what to do.
And Allah azza wa jal had made it so because this is the first killing on the face of this or the first killing. And that is the importance or the danger of as soon as, as soon as CEO.
If someone starts something good, and people follow you, what's the advantage of it?
You get rewards of everybody else who imitates you and does what he what he does because of you. And if someone does something bad and others imitate you, everybody was doing something bad because of you. You carry their sin also on your back. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He's saying that. Now imagine, imagine, it says there is no one who is killed unjustly on the face of this earth, except that the first child of Adam will have part of that sin on his back. Because he's the first person to legislate or introduce killing.
This imagine how many people are killed every single day? Yeah, today, tomorrow, and so on and so on. We're talking about millions upon millions upon billions of human beings are being killed unjustly. And he has to face a law as the origin. With all of that blood, him responsible for it because he's the first person to introduce killing on the face of this.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a hadith that is related to this.
When someone asks him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the Sahaba and he tells him if somebody tried to try it, you know comes in, especially during the times of fitna and tries to kill me.
What should I do about it, and of course, you're allowed to defend yourself. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, conecuh Hi, evening, Adam.
He says Be like the, of the two children of Adam.
Be like the better of the two children of Adam, that is somebody in student especially during the times of fitness, somebody who tries to come in and he tries to kill you, and so on and so on. He says one option that you have is that you wouldn't push back like the child of Adam, he said, what I'm not going to try to push back when you try to kill me.
If you want to kill me, you kill me. He says the prophets, all his enemies says, You have an option of being like the better one of the two children of Adam. Because then Allah zildjian, if somebody kills you unjustly, Allah will forgive your sins. And that person will take your sin and carry it instead of you carrying it, in addition to the sin that he will carry. Of course, you're allowed to defend yourself if somebody wants to kill you. But here the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is reminding us of the sacrifice and the piety of that child of Adam, who said, I'm not gonna fight you, I'm not gonna fight you, I'm not going to shed blood. If you decide that you want to kill me, you can go
ahead and kill me.
Now in Shell and also, one thing, a couple of brothers alerted me to this a mathematical correction, because they told me that when I multiplied remember that the angel, the distance, they told me, no, he did not multiply all the numbers, which they were true, I went back and I said, I didn't really multiply all the numbers. So when you multiply all the numbers, you get 43 47 million kilometers, between his ear lobe and his shoulder. So this will it gives us that if you want to place a number of Earths between his earlobe and his shoulder, there'll be 3756. Right? So before I said, only five, it actually comes to about 3000 that can fit between his ear lobe and his shoulder. So this is
the magnificence of one of the angels of Allah azza wa jal, and we're here trying to estimate his height based on the slowest bird that we know, not the fastest, so I didn't do the calculation for the fastest. So some Hana law This tells you about, if this is you know, one, just one portion of an angel of Allah azza wa jal that the Prophet sallahu wa sallam was allowed to talk about think about what could be even greater than that.
What is greater than the this angel at
the throne of Allah xojo, the throne of Allah xojo is a lot greater than that. So this is beyond anything that we can imagine. And this is beyond and you can just somehow allowed them to start to feel the majesty of Aloha, so did that. Were nothing
Nothing nothing compared to Allah Zoda. And then you find one of us challenging along challenge means wisdom and challenging his power.
No. Now, there is a story
that recounts the death of Adam alayhis salam.
And the story goes, and this is from over you have no cab, you know your firewall Rasulullah that he says that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that when Adam alayhis salaam, felt his death approaching, he was craving the fruits of gentleness. So he asked his children, he said, Go out and bring me some of the fruits of gentleness. So they went out to search for it. And a lot of them where they went and where they were heading, etc, etc. We don't know it's that they don't tell us. But on their way, somewhere they met the angels of Allah azza wa jal and said, Where are you going? He said, we, our Father is craving some of the fruits of Jenna. They said, Go back for hot coffee to
them. You don't need that go back. So they go back. And when they would have work, you know, sees the angels, she recognizes that they're going to come to take Adam Allison. So, so they go, and they take Adam soul, and they wrap the body and they wash the body and they bury the body. And they tell them this is your son. This is what you do when someone dies. And that is the death of Adam. And he said no.
We don't know exactly how many children he had. But he had children and they started to propagate.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam tells us that between Adam and Noah, there were 10 generations 10 generations. How long did that last? We do not know. Because we don't know how long Adam lived. We don't know how long the next generation lives. So it's a very long period, but we don't know the length of that period, alayhis salam regiment in our 10 generations.
And now before inshallah I move to the next prophet of Allah azzawajal I just want to emphasize some of the lessons in the story of Adam and his Sunnah. And you can inshallah, you know,
chime in and let me know if you have extra lessons besides the one that I mentioned. First of all, the danger of envy and arrogance.
From the beginning, these are fundamental since that have destroyed a police. And I've also
brought great sin to the child of Adam. So a police had the sin of arrogance, skip, I'm not going to prostrate, I'm not going to lower myself to someone who is beneath me, I'm better than he is. And with that, too, there is has said he was envious from Adam from the beginning, why should he have that privilege and not me.
And then also the child of Adam was guilty of has said of envy.
Adam and we our children, are victims of his desire of this dunya the shaitaan comes to us and say, shall I not lead you? Shall I not direct you? Do you want to have more?
Even though Adam alleys cinemas were was in general,
and yet a police was able to convince him I can give you more.
You can live forever. You can have this you can have that. So that's heads we can call it that that greed that is in us love for this dunya is also our downfall. So to pay attention to it because this is one thing that took us out of Jenna and may stop us from going back to it. So the one who desires Jenna desire is general over the dunya but the one who desires this dunya may be dragged by it into hellfire.
lesson is that Allah has wisdom is beyond us. And where do we get that from?
From the fact that the angels asked Allah azza wa jal Why are you creating Adam
Smith he couldn't understand fathom figure out why Allah as the origin would introduce this being who would bring so much harm and corruption to this earth. They couldn't see that Allah as though did has a plan, and only for Adam but who is for his progeny and that out of his progeny, he's gonna get what
the prophets of Allah and the Messenger of Allah and the pious and the martyrs and the deity and all of them are from the children of Adam. So even into the angels of Allah, who are in the upper realms, who are privy to things that we have not seen and know so much about a lost power so much about you know, the past so much about maybe the future, so much beyond what we know. Still they can really understand
The full wisdom of Allah as the origin, if that's true for them, it's also much more true for us. So that sometimes you'll find things that escape your understanding. Whether it's something in the Koran something in the sooner or something that Allah does in this life, it escapes understanding. So your job here is not to stop and question Allah azza wa jal, why did you do this? Why did you allow that? How could Allah do this but rather submit to Allah and His power, His Majesty and His wisdom, and then try to understand
and if you try to understand, I will grant you understanding, Allah will teach you
because the angels What? The angels were not objecting, remember what we talked about the angels were not objecting, they were inquiring, and a lot tied them
a lot toward them, and through them us.
A police was objecting and so he never learned
That's the difference.
And another difference also between a police and Adam
is that when you commit a sin, what should you do? repent.
So a police had no intention to repent from now till from then till now until the day of judgment, no intention to repent, Allah if Allah zildjian had known from him, that there is some good in him and he wants to repent, he would find the path for him.
But there is no such desire.
So, Adam, on the other hand, what did it take for Allah to forgive him?
For him just to go back and say, yeah, Allah forgives me for tilaka the moment Rebecca Lee Martin fatale, Adam received words or statements from Allah that He taught them what to what to say, because he wanted to repent, and Allah accepted his repentance.
So whenever you do something bad, that's that's the story of Adam. That's the moral of the story. When you ever you do something bad, what are you supposed to do? Be like your father and you come back to Allah as Yoda repeatedly, immediately and Allah will accept you. Don't be like the shaytaan who is stubborn and rebellious and say no, I'm not going to.
No, I'm not going to repent. No, I'm not going to go back. That's a satanic attitude. And Subhanallah
every time when you read a search that in the Quran,
and you go and prostrate.
You know what the shaman does?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says he thought it was such a dumb No, Adam accessor, the shaitaan we have key. He says when they show you when that child of Adam reads the ayah where there is sujood. And he goes and he makes to Jude, the shaytaan moves to the side and he cries.
And he says, Why are you lonely? He says to me, he was commanded to prostrate and he prostrated and he's going to gender. And I was commanded to prostrate and I refuse and I'm going to hellfire. Every such act reminds him of that moment, where things you know, went south for him. And if it's going to happen to him in the future, and he starts crying.
Right. So whenever you read insha, Allah, you know, essentially, in the Koran, go ahead and make that salute and remember your father Adam, and remember the rebellion of the shaytaan. And that when he sees you, he's crying, because you can do what he cannot. Right.
another one is another benefit in sha Allah is that no one should ever, ever feel secure,
to confident that they've reached
takua they've reached Gen. They've reached that they are complete and full and perfect. Can you reach now in this dunya, a level higher than the one that every ablaze has reached?
Can you climb higher? Can you hear what he had heard? Can you see what he has seen? No, he was with the angels of Allah zodat he was talking to Allah, Allah was talking to him. And you imagine, he was listening to Allah.
And he was talking to him having a conversation.
And yet, though he was worshipping and he was praying, and it's reportedly Subhana Allah he was saying that he was of the best worshipers of Allah. Allahu Allah. You have the best worshippers of Allah, at least externally internally. I mean, there was something wrong with him, but at least externally is of the best worshipers of Allah as Odin and yet he felt so low out of their being with the answers of Allah as to the lowest depths of hellfire. So no one should ever feel confident that oh, I have Taqwa. I have a man. I am perfect. I am I don't need to improve. You know, I have all the flaws that I need in my heart. No. You are always always reliant on Allah azzawajal You're always
Have I done enough? Is that am I is this sincere? Is there any [???]can what I'm doing, and never feel too arrogant, too confident that whatever you're doing is enough. It's never enough. It's only through Allah's mercy that we enter enter heaven. Right, only through Allah's mercy that we enter heaven.
The last two inshallah, or the last one is that the shaytans enmity to the child of Adam is never ending. And he swore that enmity from the beginning.
And he continues to do everything that he can to destroy you. So you have to be alert to that wake up to the fact that you have someone who is always with you, 24 seven, who's plotting to destroy you. He's trying to find your weakness, and he's using that against you. So you have to be ready for it. You have to be vigilant, you have to be strong. How can you be at all that by being close to Allah xojo because without Allah azzawajal you will fall victim to him. You have no power without Allah defied the shaytaan because you're not only fighting the Shakedown, you're fighting the shaytaan and you're also you're also your own weak self, you can win. So you need a lot of support.
You need to be in Salah. You need to be reading the Quran you need you need your car, you need to when you encounter the whispers of the shaitaan to say oh the lamina shaytani r Rajim you need to read them what are we that before you sleep when you wake up? You need to be strong in your email and if you're strong in your email and you're strong against the shaitaan and you have power against that enemy, but if you are living in lophelia heedlessness you know you're not aware, you're not aware of that plot you just living because of living you eat sleep wake up you know go with your friends and that is that is your life and you're not close to Allah azza wa jal know that to one day
to you know a certain degree or more that shaytan is playing with you is manipulating you is directing you.
So the only way to escape that is the return to Allah azza wa jal is to be aware that the shaitaan is trying to do that. And that is why when you're reading the Quran, Allah keeps repeating
the mention of the shape line and the plot of the shape on and what the shape is trying to do. So that if on any single day if you forgot a lot of minds you if you forgot a lot reminds you right?
These are some of the lessons that I have anything has anything else you'd like to add to it insha Allah let me know in the question and answer period.
Now in the stories of the prophets in the book, they list after Adam alayhis salaam they put Idris
and really Idris alayhis salam we don't really know much about Idris
and there is really actually no reason to put him right after Adam alayhis salam the reason why they put him after Adam is because they relate him to Enoch
figure in the Bible and Enoch lived before New Halley's Salaam. So because they relate Idris to Enoch, they say he may have lived before New Halley's Salaam, but actually we don't know much about Idris and he is Salam. Did he live before noon or afternoon? Was he from the children of Israel? Was he a different you know, from a different line? We don't really know much about Idris alayhis salam except that Allah mentions him in the Quran. And he says subhanho wa Taala what a foreigner who mccannon Alia we've elevated him to a high position. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned met him on the night of El Mirage. So he goes to the skies the first second third, when he
reaches the fourth sky, he meets Idris alayhis salam, and they greet each other. But beyond that, there is not much in the Quran. Not much in the sun of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam about Idris so you don't know much about him. So we move then from Idris to new Halle Salah.
Now we said between Adam and Noah, how many generations were there 10 generations model Are you listening good. So 10 generations between Adam and no Holly salah and it was a bestseller the Allahu anhu said and this is Heidi from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because this this is something that if not best, does not know on his own, that these generations were until hate one after the other, they worshipped Allah azza wa jal alone
then best tells us how Shere Khan was introduced into this world.
He said that in the people of New hella his Salaam, this is before New came in the people of Noah, they were righteous people. What sua yo yo ness. These are the ones that are mentioned in Surah Nui,
and they died very good people and they died. Now when when these people died, the people panicked, they missed them and they panicked.
So the shaytan came to them and he noticed how much they missed.
them, you know, imagine a great scholar, you know, passing and dying, another great scholar passing. So these were great, pious men who died. And people really miss them. The shaitaan understood that there here has a way
he can introduce something, but he'll introduce something that is very small. He says he comes to them in human form. And he says, I see how much you miss them. Why don't you make, you know, something, you know, to remember them by. So then every time you see this thing, you'll have energy to worship Allah xojo. So, you know, just erect rocks are not even necessarily in their image, you don't even need to carve it, but just rocks. And there are places where they used to be where they used to live. And every time you see it passed by, it will remind you of how strong they were in the worship of Allah, you will be doing that. So they said yes. And they did that. And he loved them for
And then after some time, then you know that generation perish, the children came and so on and so on. Then he came to them after some time, especially as knowledge decreased. And that thing became a staple, a habit that people had, he came to them and he said, your forefathers indeed used to worship these things, and they used to ask for rain through them. So worship them. So they started worshiping
those cities how shirk was introduced into this world, from what from venerating
the righteous, because Allah knows that we serve we are we like to exaggerate, we would like to exaggerate. So the shaitaan also knows him sister knows that we like to exaggerate. But he knows that he cannot make you commit shirk, especially when it's something that that criminal that heinous immediately. And if you have knowledge, if it comes and tells you worship this statue, will you do it?
No, I'm never gonna do it. So he says, I cannot get him to do this. But what can I get him now to do,
I can get him to do something small. If I can get him to do this small thing. Later he or if not him, his children.
I'll get them to do something greater. And I'll keep working on it until I'll get them eventually to worship that statue. So this is what he wanted. I cannot get them to worship those rocks. But what it can make them to, I can make them build something. And that is enough for me right now. Just have it be something that is common, something that you respect, something that you love, something that you are used to. And then later on, I'll convince your children or your grandchildren, that this is something that you're supposed to worship. So this is what he did.
A sin begin small deviation begins small bit, begin small spaceship begins small. If you want to close the door, close it when it's small. It's easy. It's the easiest thing for saying the same thing. Sin begins as what as a thought. Right? No one starts by killing someone. They wake up killing you don't never never happens, begins as a thought as a possibility, as a one step that you take it towards killing someone or stealing their money or drinking or drinking alcohol is just a thought and observance, a glance, if you stop it there, you stop that great sin, if you allow that first step in one step closer to that great sin. So now
they start worshipping these things. And these things, by the way, Subhana Allah, you know, I don't know if you know or not they find their way to the Arabs, that he after the flood, they get buried.
And then later on,
the Arabs dig him out in the shaytaan tells them where these statues are, they dig him out. And they take them and they distribute them and each tribe would have an idol of these that they would worship in addition to Allah and Roseanne cetera, et cetera. So even they find their way to the Arabs in Mecca and the Arabs and the Arabian Peninsula. So
Allah azza wa jal, because this ship is right there, Allah azza wa jal sends new Halley's salah
and new is the first messenger first Rasool that Allah has that it has sent to this earth. So they may have been profits between him and Adam
ambia. But if one were to ask you, who is the first rhassoul?
New hallasan? Why because we know this flat from the long Hadith of the shefa or the people go to the profits one by one. And the ask them can you intercede before Allah as urgent so that he can come for judgment? When they go to know they say you are the first messenger that Allah has loaded had sent to this earth can you
intercede on our behalf. He refuses. But they confirm that
Panama statute with his or that that virtue of his, which is that you are the first messenger that Allah has the origin had sent to this earth.
How long did he stay?
950 years. Alpha sanity in Illa home cinema. So we know then that people lived for a very long time. So we don't know how long he had lived and his people have lived. But can you imagine a dour that lasts 950 years
for him repeatedly daily, talking to them about the heat about Allah azza wa jal about the consequence of the what they're doing about the folly of worshipping idols.
Can you imagine? You know, and there is one here one great lesson for us. No, made that our for no 950 years. We give advice for five minutes for a day for a week and we get tired. And of course there's no comparison between us.
And the patience and the tempo of us versus new la cinema. But whenever you want to get tired, remember he knew that he never tired? never tired until Allah zildjian tells him that no one else home on your people is gonna believe no one else is going to believe. But until that happens, he never tires and in Surah new alayhis salam okay. In surah No, he says, Hi a lot of being either out to homi lado Juana hora for me as it whom do I elf era? He says yeah, Allah I've called upon my people day and night.
And the only thing that this you know, increase them in is running away from me.
And then whenever I call them to the truth, what do they do? jello, casabianca Danny him was stuck show theorbo they will put their fingers in their ears. We don't want to listen to you. You don't like children. Now, they will put their fingers in the way we don't want to listen to you anymore. And they will cover their heads with their clothes. They were they were hiding from him. They don't want to listen to him anymore. We'll also do was talk about a stick of Allah and Allah and no la Salaam. He says he keeps complaining to Allah isodiol about them. He says I've called them in every possible way. I've called them one to one I've sat with with each one of them talking to them. And
they call them in public. I address them in public and in private. I address them when he was alone. I address them when he was with people. I tried to entice them, attract them to Islam, telling them that if when you worship Allah azzawajal Allah will bless you. He will give you gardens he will give you rivers, he will give you children, he will give you money, he will give you this. And I've tried to scare them as well. And tell them over the great punishment, you know that is going to come to them if they don't obey Allah Zoda. I tried everything everything conceivable to try to bring them to Allah zildjian did not work with them. But did he give up. He kept on he kept on he kept on and
kept going, going, going going until Subhana Allah, Allah tells him
in the whole, I mean, I mean komikko lm, an airman. No one else is going to accept faith, except those who have already accepted faith. And Allah azzawajal says, women are men and now who in Luckily,
only few people accepted
and listen to him. And they were believers.
You know, this is a, you know, a confirmation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
you know, on the day of judgment, he said, so the law it was seldom, a Prophet would come walking, and only two people will be with him.
Two people won't be with him, meaning the only two people listen to him. Of all the people that love me have sent him to a village to a city, hundreds or 1000s only two people have listened to him. And another prophet would be walking and only one person would be walking beside him. And another prophet would be walking and there would be no one with him. No one with him.
And so no hella Islam would be walking in the day of judgment and only few people with him. They say and Allahu Allah if this is true or not, they say at
Allahu Allah. But can you imagine that the fruit of 950 years of talking to his people and their children and maybe even their children of their children, is only he got 80 out of them?
Now, here's a question. Could someone say that no, Holly has Sarah has failed.
Because guidance is from Allah as though that you do not control It is Allah as the Justice Li salika who their home their guidance is not up to you
Right. So when you give advice to someone, when you're giving power to someone, it's not your job to guide them. Your job is to convey the message the best that you can, so that they'll be guided by it. But do you control their hearts? Do you control their mind their reaction and when they will be guided and how they will be guided in Nicoletta demon Abbott, you do not guide those that you love. So your job is not to guide people. Your job is to convey the message to them.
If you convey the message right.
That's it. That's what Allah wants from you from any profit. If you convey the message right, you've succeeded.
You failed when do you fail?
When you fail to convey the message when you compromise the message, but when you convey the message when you deliver it right you don't worry about the results. No Hello his salon conveyed the message and he delivered as Allah azzawajal wanted from him and he used by the way and this is another lesson variety of our methods because you could talk to him public but they cannot be you know, receptive, but when you talk to them in person in private they could be receptive a person you could you use with them enticement attract them to Islam, that could work for them another person you may need to scare them
all legitimately, ya know, through the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his prophets or listen, but you may need to scare them, for them to come close to Allah azza wa jal. So you need to use a variety of methods derive a variety of approaches, with patience and reliance upon Allah azza wa jal that some of that may work and with patience,
and interestingly Subhan Allah on the Day of Judgment, just to see the people of
Allah as the dude will ask, no, will bring no and he will say hello, beloved. It says, Did you convey the message? He says, Yes,
this is Allah's justice. Then He will say to the people of Norway, though they are non believers. Did he come to you and deliver the message to you? What do they say?
No, no one came to us.
And within any, whether we facing they're facing hellfire.
They have their face facing hellfire. They know what happened in the dunya. We'll talk about it. They know what happened in the nia. So they're not going to easily say yes, he came and you know, delivered the message in full and no one came to us. So Allah zildjian will say to know, Allah knows who is going to confirm your testimony?
Who's going to confirm his testimony?
Yes, so he says Mohamed Salah, it was Solomon is oma. So he goes to Mohammed and his own money. He says, Did he deliver his message? He says yes, he delivered the message. How do we know? Because Allah tells us in the Quran, right? So is upon Allah, Allah azza wa jal has made Muhammad Sallallahu a cinema witness on the Ummah and he made the home of Mohammed Salah law, he wasn't a witness unto the nations that they will witness who delivered the message and who did not even though they did not fit, you know, physically witness it, but they know it through the book of Allah azza wa jal. So that's the nature of the people of New Allen Salah.
Now, of course, Allah azza wa jal tells him, you know, no one no one's gonna believe except those who have believed and one of the miracles of new Halley's Salaam, and this is would be a miracle to every prophet because panela This is amazing. Is that new challenges as people Hylia comin can a couple rally comecomecome you with key Rebiya Tila if Allah lightower killed, he says yeah, he says people, it says, If you know my, my reminders, you know, are agitating you and you're fed up with me. He says I have a medicine for it. And you can go on Morocco. musharaka accom. He says, all of you and your partners and all your helpers, all of you sit together plot against me and decide to
kill me and don't postpone me do it immediately. And do it, you know, decisively. Go ahead. This was no challenge to them.
And I want you to think about it. Because someone who's standing alone, tells them right? tells them and something like that all the prophets of Allah xojo are subject to that is here. If you don't like me, Kill me. Kill me. All of you gather all of your mind all of your power all of your men, everybody else who's willing to be with you. You know, decide how to kill me and do it immediately.
But if you cannot, there is evidence that is what that who's stopping you.
Allah xojo this is like somebody who's you know, you know, without
going without arm defenseless is going through some people are all well armed and he says all of you tried to kill me. I challenge you kill me, and they don't kill him, and they cannot.
What does that tell you? Who's protecting him? Allah azza wa jal and that also there's lesson in that as well. Now that I recommend that you do this right, but that
life and death is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal is not the hands of people. So no Holly is Salam because he put his trust fully in who Allah has noted, he knows that they cannot take step without him. They cannot raise a finger without him. So he knows when he tells them, try to kill me and he has security from Allah never be able to do it. So your security should be with Allah. Not with the physical means around you. Allah controls all of it. No, Allah has Salam understood this very well.
Of course, one of the things that people have objected to it says hello Meanwhile, acaba de Baca Jani Orianna, he says, No, do we believe? Do we believe in you? And who followed you?
Or are they No, no, the worst among us, will low among us badly awry without thought. So the elites and that is a common theme that repeats in the Quran. And it's a common theme in this dunya that those who follow the message of the truth are those who are what, usually the ones who are oppressed and wrong, the weak,
not the elite. The elites are the furthest away from Allah azza wa jal, because of their power and because of their money. So though the elites, what was their complaint? He says, Why should we follow you on who followed you? The poor and the miserable and you know, that you know, the weak, but these were our words, and are the farmers of the profits. And that's why also in the asked about Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, who are his followers, they said the same thing. The week the slaves and women were following him.
Of course, men were following him, but among them are the weak, the weak in society are those who are following him. These are the followers of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal.
Now, no one else is going to believe and so Allah azza wa jal commands him to build what
the ship or the ark as Safina and Furyk and Allah has no direct sum as to how to build it. And this was a miracle of a prophet of Allah. Because if you were to ask yourself or someone to ask you, how did all of these animals mean coolies? Oh, Janie Thane what Allah He says, Put on this ship, your family, and those who believed? And from every animal to male and female, put them on the ship? How did it carry all of those people and all of those animals? How did they fit inside? What do we say?
It's massive. It's big. But it's also what? It's a jeiza It's a miracle from Allah azza wa jal that all of them that, you know, he's building it. Yeah. So there's a limit to what he can build. But still, you could have one animal after the other, he they enter and there is still space, space, space and space, and can't Allah azzawajal creates space within it if he wishes. Of course, he can accommodate all of it. Right. So space space is under Allah's control, how he expands it, how he shrinks things are up to him Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is a miracle from Allah azza wa jal. But so panelo is an old full kukula muralla homosassa human he says, Oh, he's making this he
creating it, and whenever they pass by him, they're making fun of him.
And then he says in this voronina finanace Holloman komitas Haroon says if you're mocking us, we're mocking you as you're mocking us because he knows what is coming Subhan Allah He knows what is coming. And he has told them what is coming but they don't believe says if you're mocking us because we were building this ship. I'm also mocking you. I'm also mocking you. Because no Halley's Salam had beta
or beta or Allah or liminal cafe Rena they are after Allah had told him no one else is gonna believe. These are the believers, the rest are non believers. He says yeah, Allah Do not leave an unbeliever on the face of this earth.
And why did he make this drought? Did he make this job because he was just simply fed up with them and he was tired and he was vengeful? Was it that? Well, how did he justify it? What did he tell Allah zoton inaka interhome you don't do a bad luck, if you're going to leave them just to live and procreate and you know, they are gonna misguide your slaves, and they will only give birth to another non believer like them, they will inherit this disbelief, one parent to a child, and they will misguide all others, so Allah is what he wanted Allah purify this earth.
purify it from the screen and the likes of did that from him. So his world building this ship building this ship building this ship until Allah azza wa jal told him everybody board and Allah as though he says have a Weber so maybe you met in one hermit so the sky opened
with rain like never they have seen before and not only scarred rain from the sky, but also water from the earth. The earth every spot on this earth right was gushing with water filter Calma
colder water from top and water from bottom both met
because that's his destiny.
And it said that it was so high that it would cover all the mountains covered all the mountains. And we know that Why?
Because one person who drowned was the son of new Halley's Salaam. So when they boarded the ship,
new heli cinema was calling his son Come Come with us It can manner by the car, we either jambalaya simony minalima it says I'm gonna take refuge on a mountain that will protect me from the water. Palella awesomely amin amarilla. So when I told him he says nothing will protect today from Allah as decree will halaby no human mode and the ways separated between them and he died.
And Allah says what he essentially became Fimo gene called rebel The ship was running on the on water, in waves like mountains, in mighty waves like mountains, so it covered this entire Earth, or low elements covered all the mountains. And all the only living human beings were on that ship.
And the animals were that were on that ship.
until Allah azza wa jal allows, you know, allies to purify this earth of disbelief while he's on mat and he allowed the earth to start seeping and going into the earth and till and then that ship settled on ground again. And new Halley's Salaam and the believers
went off it safely. And this is how Allah azza wa jal purified this earth from that disbelief and saved the believers
and know how Allah His solemn, made a request to Allah azza wa jal.
He says he Allah, you said and your family were in abney Minnelli and my son who just passed and died, he's from my family.
Because for Allah zodion he says carry right beyond the ship and your family. And this son of mine is also from my family. But what is Allah says in the Coronavirus Allah
polettis le Melissa lucky be here, Melissa, when he says that or he is unrighteous or he has done something unrighteous. He's not a believer.
So do not ask me things that you are not allowed to ask Subhana Allah even knew alayhis salam, there is a limit to what he can ask. And he's asking about his son. But it does not matter whether he was the son of Knuth or not
someone who's unrelated to know, but he was a believer was saved
and knew his own son was not saved.
Right? And inshallah we'll see the lessons or lesson of that inshallah next week is odd, because I don't want to go into Asia. But newest son was not saved by a stranger or someone unrelated to Noah would be saved. And it's all based on Eman alized origin
and a lot also tells us about the wife of new
though this this happened before the flood was it, you know, Subhanallah we don't we don't know exactly when it happened during the flood or before the flood? We don't know. But Allah tells us that when he put an example put forth an example, Lila Dina cafaro merata noho merata Ruth is the wife of new and the wife of loot, Canada. They named Yvette Dino Sally Haney for hi Natasha Houma. philomela Nia and Houma. La Hoshi Amina La Jolla. Well heeled hola naramata Haley
Allah as it says, you know the wife of new Han, the wife of Luke, they were married to two righteous men and they betrayed them.
And how did they betrayed them? By disbelieving?
By not obeying Allah as a surgeon and worshiping Allah azza wa jal so knew and Luke could not help them and it was said enter Hellfire with those who are entering hellfire. So knew his wife also
this believed and he couldn't save her
and Allah and there is lesson in that as well.
Charla so i think that's that's the last part that I had. So, no, had a salam, as we said was the first messenger
Aloha zildjian had sent to humanity and he was sent to his people. We know how should start it and we know how it ended in Sharla because I don't want to Charlotte take too much time but Neela I want to reserve lessons from insha Allah this story till next week but Allah azzawajal with whatever you know we need to add to the story we have nilla just to conclude it, but because we have just few minutes in Sharla just want to see if you have any questions about what we said whether it's about Adam alayhis salam, anything related to Idris we didn't say much about him, or anything that is related to LA Salaam or anything else. Yeah.
must be true.
