smilla with hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah wa sahbihi wa sallam Lama alumina myinfo now and fan of Mr. Olympia now is it now ailment honorable al Ameen.
inshallah tonight, we'll finish up and see the lessons from the story of no hallasan I'm actually will finished it, just want to see some lessons from it. And then we'll move to the stories of two prophets
who'd unsightly Halima Salaam.
Now some of the lessons from the story of new Hanawon Sharla always to remember that, whatever lessons we come up with, I am pretty sure that if you go back to this story, and you reread it and then reread it, you will always be able to come back with more and more lessons and benefits from it, they will never end. And even the lessons of how to love that you thought that you understood at one point when you come and visit it later, a year, five years, 10 years later, you will find that it will have a different impact. It will mean something different, something deeper, depending on your life experience so far, what you're going through. So for instance, someone who reads the story
of Noah, and how he loses, loses his wife and his son, and he's not married, and doesn't have children.
He's not going to impact him the same way that if he goes later, or 510 years later on, he's married and he has children and he reads the story. The way that he or she is gonna relate to it will be different and deeper. Right. And if God forbid, they lose his son and they read the story of losing a son, it means something different. So I'm saying these stories will never
do dry up, they will always keep giving you and giving you the more that you read in sha Allah. So some of the benefits by no means are they the entire benefit, but some of the benefits of the story is that one that Allah has rewarded
for his extensive,
dedicated and long dour by making the progeny of all humanity to all come from him and his center.
So Allah as though just says would you react to homeopathy? It says we have made his progeny the war those who have survived. So the other man have said
that no Halla his Salaam is the second Adam.
No, is the second Adam meaning all of humanity come from who? Adam. And then after no Hello he said I'm all of humanity comes from New alayhis salam. So you see how Allah azza wa jal has rewarded him. Yeah, he lost a son. And we'll see that in sha Allah. Among the benefits. Yes, he lost his son. Yes, he lost a lot of people that he knew around him. And only the believers survived on that ship, plus the animals and only very few believers. So one of the things that Allah rewarded him with is that the rest of humanity were to come from New Halla, his Salah. So here, that's the benefit that if Allah hospital asks you for something, and you deliver it, and you do it the way that Allah wants
you due to Allah rewards you in proportion to your loss and your dedication, and how much you have given. So think about it, he didn't lose, he gained so much, and he sent him.
Now, another benefit, and that we've discussed later, but it's also important to emphasize it is that
the time that new holla is seldom spent in the hour was not a waste, meaning whoever have actually accepted Islam that was the gain of the dour.
And even if no one even if no one accepted Islam.
After 950 years of Dawa, even if no one accepted Islam, still the mission of nor hallelujah Salaam would have been considered a success. And why would it be considered a success? Because what is it that Allah hazarded asks from every conveyor of the hour from every messenger and from every Rasool and prophet is not the results. Now what is it delivering and conveying the message at to believe this is what is required? The results as we said, the hearts are in the hands of Allah has
no human can control how and when you can accept the truth. You don't know. It's always in the hands of Allah Zoda. Now we can do something about it. But still with everything that we can do. You can be the most persuasive, most eloquent, most learned person. And yet that person or a person who's very close to you may never accept the truth. And somebody who's
Absent who hears you once? Who is not related to? My except the truth? You don't know hearts are in the hands of Allah xojo.
So what is our mission is to give the proper Tao and someone asked me, okay, tell me, what is it? What does it mean to give the proper demo?
Because that's the amount of that Allah gives you. What is it? What does it mean to give you the proper dour? What it means is that the content of the data and the delivery of the data, both of them should be sound, the content of the data means that you don't compromise it. You give what Allah has done has said, you don't change it. You give what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you don't change it, you deliver it pristine, clean your as you have received it from the original sources, the Book of Allah, and listen of his prophets that have largely within them. Think of yourself Subhana Allah as just a transmitter. Here you have the Quran and the Sunnah and you want
to transmit this to people, you don't want to pollute it in any way. So the content needs to be uncompromised and pure and clean.
But there's also it's not enough that happens.
You need also the delivery how you're going to deliver this you have to deliver it in the best of ways, kindest, gentlest, and also wisest of ways. uncompromising but also gentle. So how do you do this? This is how you would go back to New hella his Salaam? And who would and sila and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and those who are in between and see how did they talk to their people? How did they use different our methods? How were they wise about presentation gradual at times, how to how at times, they would entice people to come to the truth, but other times they would threaten them, and other times they would be friendly and kind and other times they would be stern and hard. You
would see how they would vary methods of Dawa how gradually played a factor in it? What did they start with? And how much they emphasize that they'll hit of Allah xojo? How do they bring on the proofs and present these proofs to their people, proofs about the existence of Allah as the origin proves that he's the only one that needs to be worship proves that they are messengers and prophets. So when you study that you will have a complete and a proper understanding of what Tao is Dawa is two things. That was the content, you need to learn what the content is, and then how do you deliver this content. So this is what the stories of the prophets also teach us, especially in details when
you go through it and when you read it in the Quran. And you see that Allah azza wa jal tells you this is what the house they spoke to them. This is the reply that they received. And by the way that replied that the Messenger of Allah received is common. We'll see examples of is common. If you hear something that was said to noise. It was set to hood, unsightly, and Moosa and Mohammed Allah hemos salatu wa sallam he was said to all of them. So humans repeat themselves, and they have a typical common reply to the messengers of Allah zildjian.
Oh, you're crazy.
You will be wished somebody you know made magic, or you're a magician.
And you only want power.
Bring us a sign. And when they bring them the sign, what happens? Do they believe? No. So it's common. It's common themes that a lot as it presents in the Koran? Why does he present these common themes in the Quran? Because if you go on and you become a data, you call people to the truth or you simply observe it, you'll notice these patterns repeating over and over and over, because humans are humans.
And the third lesson insha, Allah
is that we said that no, Allah is Salaam, lost his son and lost his wife. So you could do as we said, before, you could do everything in your power to fix and guide and yet you may fail. And that means that you don't trust what, don't trust your own ability. It's not you,
I'm gonna give them our and I'm a great day and I will guide them. Or if I study and if I do this, if I do that, definitely people will be guided No, as Allah as stole his prophet. And we said this last time, in Nicoletta demon, you're not going to guide those that you love, or everybody that you love, you're not going to be able to guide them. So this all goes back to Allah xeljanz. So without torkoal on Allah, you'll not be able to give proper power, because you're not the one who's guiding people, even the way that you talk to them. That is all in the hands of Allah xojo.
And I want us to see Subhana Allah, how new is submitted to Allah.
Because what it new has in that name and early it says, because he says, Yeah, Allah My son is from my family. Meaning that he Are you promised. Take him, put yourself on the ship
and take your family now My son has died.
And it's a tragic scene. You know if you if you remember it in the Quran says when he asks him come and board the ship Come on the ship with us. It says no, I'm going to climb on a mountain to protect me from the waves from the water. And no, and he said, lamb says, Now similarly, in Emory law, nothing will protect today from Allah's decree. That in itself is a lesson. When Allah decrees something, there's nothing that you can do to stop it. No physical means no protection. If death if it is death that Allah has decreed. You can hide inside a mountain and death will catch you.
If something else that Allah has decreed. Don't think that you can do anything to protect yourself from it. So again, it is to work on Allah azza wa jal don't think that it is you but it is allow you Yes, you take the means you consider them. You do what Allah has commanded you, you protect yourself but that's not the thing that's gonna protect you. So he dies.
Now know how a Salam asks Allah azza wa jal save him.
And what is Allah says, What does Allah say to Noah?
No, no, it tells him No. In Coronavirus Allah in near aerocon takuna mina Jia when he says he is unrighteous. And I advise you not to be among the ignorant. The enemy says this is not something that you can ask me. So no, Allah has said I'm submits to Allah as the origin directly when he says, asks Allah for forgiveness, and that he does not want to ask Allah anything that he's not entitled to ask him. So I want you to see how much they submitted to Allah azzawajal. Because for a lot of us, that would be tough.
You lose a son, you lose a child. Okay, I lost them. Even that loss in itself, a lot of us, you know, cannot handle it. We cannot take it, but then to be told that he's not righteous, and what does it mean that he's not righteous? Where is he going
on fire? And how can you be patient with this? And how can you as a father, you know, process all that.
So Subhana, Allah, this tells you that they were slaves of Allah azza wa jal, not slaves of their desires, not slaves of anything else around them. And then once Allah and a person can not become a monk, the reach the level of prophets and messengers, but a person can reach a level where he can actually submit to Allah azzawajal. Immediately, when he knows that this is what Allah loves, this is what Allah loves, then it's better than what I love. Allah does not want this for me, then this is best, and they can leave what they love for what Allah loves. That's what distinguished the prophets of Allah and the messengers that they could leave what Allah loves, for what will leave
what they love for what Allah has loved. And that becomes the thing that they love, and they will forget about it. So it does not mean that it does not hurt. Now, he is still a father does not mean that it does not work. But once he knows from Allah azza wa jal that the story is over and it's settled and nothing else can be done about it, and that Allah does not love him. It is done for him. He moves on, and he focuses on Allah azza wa jal wants him to focus on.
Now we move in sha Allah to the story of hood, unsightly Halima Silla. Now, we said that between No, and Ibrahim, or how many generations 1010 generations, we don't know how long that was. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says 10 generations, I don't know how many 1000s of years these words. Now, a lot has to do when he talks in the Quran about No, and then follows up and talks about the next Prophet, he mentions hood.
And then after hood, he talks about silence. So we understand that between no and Ibrahim alayhis salaam, we have both hood and sila. We may have other profits, but we don't know who they are. But at least we know that there is hood and sila. What is unique about those two profits is that they were our profits, hood and sila are our profits. They're not from Vanessa. So most of the profits that we'll be talking about, they come from Newsela in but these are our profits wood and solid. So we'll talk first about who the owner is Sonam.
Now, who actually solid also as well, they belong to tribes add into mood, that are called the extinct Arabs. So they divide the Arabs into this type of Arabs, those types of Arabs and there is an unbeliever either the Arabs that gone extinct. There are a couple of other tribes that have gone extinct, some which the Arabs knew very well that they gone extinct our ad and thermowood. So who was sent to AD an ad is called in the Quran urine. And I'm told okay for a lot of bukoba ad era, that image so it's called the ad you
And Iran is either the grandfather of ad or the name of the tribe or the name of the city, but they are known as ad Ilan.
He Rama that in a minute, he Rama Rajan will explain what that means. And for but I Iran, they're also called in the haoran ad alula. The first ad will no alika adenine Allah. And Allah destroyed the first ad with some of the scholars have said, and there's a hadith to support that there is a second ad, and we'll tell you about inshallah, at the end. So there's a first ad that the Quran talks about, and there is a second ad that I'm sure Allah mentions, they also were destroyed.
So they lived
as if they lived in a place called a half. There's a surah in the Quran that is called a half.
What could have been it under a coma who Billa half? So he gave warning to these people in a half. What is that a half and a half? Or mountains of sand? mountains of sand? Where is that? That is generally in Arabia, more specifically in southern Arabia, that area from Yemen to Oman. That's the area where exactly that is. Allahu Allah. We do not know. There are speculations it's there. It's there. But it's not exact. So we don't know where they were. But roughly, that is the general area where they lived.
And Allah zodion in this ayah that he talked about, and I'm not okay for a lot of bukoba don't do Don't you see or Didn't you hear about how Allah dealt with ad Iran, the other Iran that Allah mad
What does that mean? That is a mad is that excelled in construction and in building
their very powerful that in a mad, that's what it means. Some said, you know, it's the pole of the tent. But it actually means more than that. It's strength that they were very strong, strong physically, but strong materially as well. And Allah says, Allah Tila mula, Mithra, halfhill, beloved, the like of which was not created in the land. And this could be your reference to either themselves, but Allah did not create anything like them, at least at that time. Or that the places that they were living in, nothing else was like them or close to them in the entire land, it that they have reached levels of strength, material well being, and they were rich, but then also only
rich, also very powerful and very skilled. And they were able to build cities and construct things that were grant that nothing else was like them in the land. So either they themselves and they physically were superior will see in Sharla they physically superior, but also materially power wise, they were also very superior. And Allah has his origin documents this and His Prophet Alayhi Salaam hood documents this so let's see some if Allah as dogen says in the Quran, our adjective comunicato mirabai comodoro to remain chameleon dirocco and then here's that part that I wanted with Kuru with Jana come holla for me mean by the home you know, when was the control healthy bus stop?
Remember that he had made us successors after the people of Norway. So after that, they come immediately after the people have no right. What does it mean that they are successors who inherited power afternoon
they they're not in the same location. But it's as if the mental as if you know the flame of power went from someone to someone else who inherited that
ad for him. So was the country healthy the store and he added you and gave you strength in body, you know and height. So bas thought he extended you your extended extended in body, meaning that you are tall
and big and strong. So physically, they were very strong. So that's why he says fedco to Allah Allah. remember Allah Allah upon you so that you'd be successful. Remember all of these nemos First of all, a prophet is coming to you. Is that an enema or not? That is an AMA. The second of all, right Allah had made us successors afternoon that is another name and then he also had given you strength. That triple netmail
allows it and also says what the whole of the AMA de combi Murtala Mohammed can be and I am in Weber, Nina genetica, Yun have Taqwa of Allah as the general has given you given you what you know he had given you. What is he given you, given you cattle and animals and children, which are not in what are your own gardens and rivers.
So I've given you water and gardens and meaning that they're blessed.
They were not in need, they were blessed.
And he also said what and this is another method of dour,
enticing people to reap.
Where homestyle fuel rubber consumer to lie. He says my people ask Allah for forgiveness, and repentance to him. You will see this summer Allah commit Aurora, why is it quwata? illa quwata come? Well at our lomandra mean? He says if you do this, if you ask Allah for forgiveness, and you repent, what will Allah give you? And he's talking about the dunya? Because some of us if you only talk about the earth era,
we're not that interested.
But if you tell us that you're going to get something in the dunya
Yeah, okay. So we want that, oh means I'm going to become richer, I'm going to become stronger, I'm going to become healthier. So, when you see these immediate benefits, and we are humans have been created impatient, they will tell us everything Everything is in the Hereafter, when is this going to happen? When will I see this? But if you take Yeah, there is a hereafter and there is dunya as well then that satisfies some of our needs. So what is he saying? You will see the sama la comida Aurora, he will send you know the rain upon you frequently. So, He will bless you with water with rain frequently. Why has it come over than he recovered and He will give you strength upon the
strength that you will you are given, so will make you even stronger?
does this apply till today?
As a promise, yeah. Yes, it does. So this is a promise from our end, though is he's addressing them. It applies till today, that Allah will bless you. Bless you with rain, bless you, with strength bless you with with NEMA from Allah as his origin, if you obey Allah as Odin, now it can go up and down sometimes, and then you could be tested but in general, especially a society or a community that obeys Allah azza wa jal they be tested. But once they are tested, and they survive that test, and they actually succeed a lot as a group lesson.
And there is an area also that tells you about their strength. But what is amazing about this, and I want you to listen to it carefully, is that it actually tells you how a lot of humans the powerful today, especially powerful countries, what they're doing and why they're doing it, because ad is like us today. Like if you think of the superpowers and what they do, you'll see that ad is exactly the same and we are exactly like them, and how we behave. So here their profit is talking to them. He says at Abu Dhabi Cooley re entered into a bathroom. What did he do? No masani Allah Allah, Luna worried about Ashton bata stone Jabarin, he says, do you build on top of every mountain and hill at
grant structure for play?
Or did the Luna masana and you build reservoirs or like factories, so it's either reservoirs or factories, so that you will live forever or in hope of your living forever?
Worried about them, and when you punish when you use your power, you're ruthless. You use it without mercy.
Okay, let me go and explain and show you the similarities. So he says, do you build on top of every mountain and hill, like, every elevation at Grand structure for play? taboo, no good reason behind building it. But for showing off for demonstration for pride.
What does this remind you of?
I know well, not not so specific. Yeah. But yeah, right. building these very, very high structures, without any need.
just for show off, we have the tallest, we have the biggest yet. It's not that we ran out of space, and we need to stack people on top of each other. Or that property or land is expensive, but that we want to build a grand structure as a sign. This is who we are. And we have the biggest thing and the most expensive that so he says you're building it just for showing off just to prove yourselves and there is no good reason behind it. By the way, this is something condemned in the Quran. Allah hates
Allah hates. So it's a demonstration of power and prestige and wealth. That's Haram. So he's telling them condemning them attack nunobiki malaria and I attend Tabitha and wasting all of this money. All of this effort just for playing. What'd he do? No masani Allah Allah come to the saloon. And you are building and here Masonic could mean either reservoirs of water, big reservoirs of water.
That where they would keep water in it, or masana. You know, it could also mean in a way thing to manufacture.
With. So if you think of their civilization for them to build such grand and big structures, and to be so advanced, and so skilled, they will need tools they will need to be building and keep supplying and replenishing. So you're building all of these things. But why are you building them? Because you either believe you're going to be living forever, you hope you're going to be living forever, or you act as if you're living forever. So whatever you are doing, in fact, it's not temporary. It's not moderated by humility. It's not tempered by the fact that Well, we're not going to live to see all of this. So let's save for our children, something for our children, let's save
the environment around us. Let's be humbled before Allah as we know, we're going to be living forever. So we add, we live, we produce, we buy, we sell, we build as if we are living forever.
So that eternity on earth is an obsession.
And then he says, What about touchstone? When you fight people, when you use your power, how do you use it? Jabarin? You are ruthless without mercy. You use it to the extreme.
What does that remind you of?
When people start bombing?
Yeah, Nina, um, right. Yeah. And when you use your power, it doesn't mean that if you have power, you're ruthless about it. Where's your mercy? Where's your Rama? Because whatever you are producing sooner or later can be turned against you. And where is Allah azza wa jal, you know, after all of this work is allowed is the fear of Allah. So it says you it doesn't mean that you have power you use it however way you want.
So you see how they are. And they are exactly like a lot of Subhanallah people are today as I'm telling you, people just repeat the same mistakes.
So and of course, of course, in addition to all of this, you know, Subhanallah so they have strength. They have so much strength
that they actually felt that they were invincible. Holloman I should do me know why they said who is stronger than us in the Quran? They're boasting about it. Who is stronger? Again, remind you who is stronger? We're number one. Remember, this will be humans. Why we're number one. We're the strongest country we're the strongest army with. We're number one. Well when I should mean aku weapon Allah Sujit says, I would have Miro and Allah Allah, the halaqa home, who should be known for? Don't they know they don't recognize that Allah who created them is stronger than they are. So where is your tomato, you know, no matter what Allah gives you. So when you read the story of ad, you're not
really reading a story of people Wow. 1000s of years ago, how relevant is this, you're reading about today. Understand how it is. It's like you reading the news. So panelized as if you open the Koran and you read it, but you just need to understand it. And really, uh, you know, send it in detail, as if and then go read the newspaper, or go online and see what people are saying. It's as if you in the Koran, you were reading the news, whatever they were saying there, you can come back and find it in the Koran, but more profound there. Because Allah as it gives you principles that are true all the time, they never change, they're never confused. They're always true.
Now, and of course, you know, in addition to all of this, they worshipped idols so it is said that they were the first allow them to worship idols after noon, and a Salah after the destruction of the people have known that they were the first to worshipping idols. And they said, How do you who do magic 10 Urbina home and I know Vitara clearly has a non public woman hannula can be more meaning. They said hood, it didn't bring us any proof. And we're not going to leave our idols just because you say you say so I'm gonna I'm gonna believe in you.
So they worshipped idols.
And in addition, of course, to all of this,
they hastened they asked for the punishment of Allah.
You know, after the after, and the people do that. Maybe feeling too confident or ridiculing their Prophet, whatever it is, how do I get annalena Buddha Allah How do you say you're coming to us and they're asking us to do what to worship Allah alone. As if that is ridiculous, as if that is you know, unimaginable. You want us just to worship one alone the Gita Naboo de la vida, another Americana Abu Abba una and we live with our parents used to worship.
So one of the also the lessons here is that being attached to custom to tradition, is very dangerous if it goes against what Allah zildjian once a semi culture is, who cares about your culture? My parents, my forefathers, they used to do it this way. Who cares about the way that they used to do it? If this is not what the what Allah loves. So this is exactly there's that great human attachment. Our parents used to worship these you want
To leave them, now we're not gonna leave them. And this is Subhanallah when a person cancels their mind and decides to blindly follow someone else,
you know, Subhanallah, how smart you know, a couple of Sahaba had it even when we need an unbroken loss. Brilliant. The problem was he was called out here to lotto
incredibly, incredibly brilliant, a mastermind, and how to lead and in tactics in warfare, you know, they asked him, he said, What delayed your Islam and you're as intelligent and smart as you are? What delayed your Islam because he accepted Islam late. He said, Because among us, they were elders, who were very smart. And we thought they knew what's what's right and what's wrong. So we just followed them.
But when they died, and we thought for ourselves, we found what the truth was. So what is this that delayed his Islam, he had a Buddha, he had Abu lahab, he had Abu sufian, before Abu sufian accepted Islam. So he thought these were the elders and they were smart. And they in reality, they were smart, but not smart enough to accept Islam, but smart enough. So he said they submitted to them, she was just gonna follow what they say because they must know better. And if a person does that, they can end up in Hellfire because they decided not to think for themselves. So you have to find what Allah says, and follow it not with tradition, culture, or my parents have said, with all
respect to your parents, when your parents say something, right, you have to follow it and always you have to be respectful. But I'm talking here about something that is opposite to what Allah azzawajal loves.
So he says, We're not going to leave it just because you say so. And these are what four parents have worshipped and we're going to continue to worship Him. And they also disbelieved in the Day of Judgment.
They also just believe I do commander commit me to more Quantum taraba Ivana and Nakamura john, he says he's promising you that when you die, perish, become dust become nothing. You know, you become, you know, dust and bone that you're going to come back. Hey, had I had any more to add on this is far far fetched that anything like that is gonna happen in here in La Jolla, tuna dunia Namu, Jonah, hello men and women. This is only our worldly life. We live we die, we're not going to be resurrected. That's it.
And you find people today saying the same thing, isn't it? Absolutely. Again, you're not reading about something from the past. You're reading the present. And you're reading the future? Oh, no, no, no, after you perish you think that there's an afterlife? You this is this is so ridiculous. This is so childish. This is so backward, they will give you this thing until you think to me is childish, it is backwards, if you decide to believe what they say about it. But if you go back to the book of Allah, as you say, oh, there are people before who said exactly the same thing. What happened to them?
Allah destroyed them. Allah destroyed them and took them away. So there is really no argument actually not no proof that you say, Oh, they cannot. It's impossible, that after you perish, after you actually die, and he becomes sand.
That is impossible for you to come back. I mean, you hit a bomb over your arm. He says, Who is going to bring bones back to life after they have become dust? For you? He handed the answer when he says the one who will bring it back is the one who created it the first time
was this mode was this is returning it more difficult than the original creation. So if the initial creation is possible, and it's possible, because you're right here, you're right here, it's possible. You weren't anything and then you are something that can allow us to return you into something after we had become sent.
Now, like Nutella is Salam unlike other prophets, one of those they said one of the
one of the law areas that the Prophet gives is that they challenge their people. Right? The challenge is people and there's this challenge. They said to him, you know, there's something wrong with you. In Nakuru Illa Terracotta Army had a navy suit, some of our idols must have touched you with some harm that's why you're delusional. Something's wrong with your mind you're saying these things you know, you got harmed by some of our idols
What does he say to them color in new sheet will overshadow your very own image recon he says I make a lot of witness and you become witnesses. I'm innocent and free of those that you associate with Allah as origin mean dooney he feki duni Jamia unfamiliar term the rune instead of Allah without Allah azza wa jal on you with you mean duni feki duni all of you plot against me. One of them are not on their own and do not delay me in your plot. In our culture, Allah la hora Brb, come, I have to work on Allah azza wa jal, my rub on your mom and dad But no, there is no living being except that Allah has control over it. Don't be unbeknownst to you.
So what is he telling them and what do they say you say our idols
Tom, do you say okay, are your your idols okay? I'm innocent of anything that you associate with Allah asserted. But do you think your idols aren't me? You and your idols and everybody else that you want to you know get with you ki dooney Jamia plot against me and plan to kill me all of you. And don't wait, don't wait till tomorrow maybe I'll run away. Maybe in a week I'll run away. I'll try to protect myself. Do it now. As soon as you finish your plot, do it immediately. Here, I'm here. You know where I live? Right?
Do they do anything? No. Next day, the next day, the next day, nothing happens. They say this is evidence that he is a prophet of Allah acident. Because what is the easiest thing? If he is such an annoying figure? What is the easiest thing?
Sure, him. We know they don't have guns now. Okay, but you know, kill him. Just kill him done. The story's over. They still do that today. Right? Yeah, you don't like somebody you just take, take him out. Done. That story's over, why you keep suffering. And every time he's coming and telling you and threatening you with a double law allows punishment and you have to, why are you doing all of this, just take take him out. And he can do this. Either they cannot agree, or the plots fail anyway, the fact that he's a single person, or one person sitting among them, and all of them cannot do anything to start them they say that is evidence that he is supported by Allah so that otherwise he will not
be able, he will not be able to survive and not be able to continue.
They said to him how to survive and you know, after, after I'm not documented while in in the in the local arena. vamana when they say hood, whether you talk to us or not admonish us or not remind us or not.
We're not going to believe in you. This whatever is happening in Heather Illa Hello, Paula. Well, in another era in Heather Illa Hello, Colleen, what does that mean? It means two things are more than that. It means that these things that are happening to us, you know, we are sick, rich, poor, sick, healthy, rich, poor, whatever it is in Heather Illa Hold on, this is a pattern on humanity. This is nothing molars origin pattern. People get sick people get healthy people get rich people get poor people, you know go through hard times and they go through is this is nothing related to how righteous or unrighteous we are and not related to a creator.
And that again,
you hear that today. The same thing. This is just life. This is like life not not divine intervention. This is life. An earthquake is an earthquake, a tsunami, the tsunami, nothing divine behind it. sicknesses sickness, health and health, wealth as well. Nothing divine. There's no design, there's no plan. They're saying the same thing. Or in other Illa Hola. Hola. guanine, they're telling him you're fabricating these things. And these fabrications you inherited that from early on. Were very early sources and you're reproducing this for us. This is what it is. This is not from molars origin.
Now, they asked for a less punishment. They asked for less punishment, and Allah sent them a punishment. So what does Allah azza wa jal says, In the Quran? Allah Allah miroir de La da da da da da da da mo Tirana balumama statue to be re. Addabbo alene to the miracle cache in the Amira via Filmora when they saw clouds coming and it is said that they experienced some drought. There's no rain. We're waiting for rain waiting for rain waiting for rain. It's not coming. I don't know. We don't know how long that lasted. But then when they saw rain, or they saw clouds coming from far they were happy for them ah who are even clouds coming mustafi that's coming to their Valley to
their towns. How do you have the other these are clouds that will bring us rain? Allah says no. But who am I staggered from? This is what you've been asking for. Mr. gelatin you're rushing asking for a less punishment here it's come to you Rehan there it's a wind fee her either one that's carrying with it severe punishment, destroying everything, be if need be amblyopia destroying everything by the command of Allah azza wa jal for us. He says for us baja in the morning, you could only see their dwellings their houses. All of them were destroyed can only can St. Coleman would remain. In another area. Allah azza wa jal says, Don't fall hooli kobori hen Sora sarin Aditya as for they were
destroyed with a wind
he described it as being sort of subtle and it it is mighty.
So it is mighty wind
Southern salsa is thunderous, it's so strong that it's like thunder.
It is so strong that it is like thunder. This is salsa, so it's strong and thunderous. So Holla Holla him sobre la la with him and he had a Minho. Suma Allah has it and sent it upon them for seven nights and eight days, he'll asuma to finish them off or one after the other. So either to finish them off or one after the other. Further alko Murphy hasakah and the home Jasmine linha we are you will see people dead as if they are hollow tea tree trunks. So you know the tree, especially palm trees, and they have heads. So a lot as it says when you see them it's as if they are tree trunks without heads.
All scattered. I just wanna clean how we analyze the law describes it or if you add any personality Marie hell again we sent on them or read the wind that is a theme Baron meaning brings no good bearing when meanings brings no good anything that it comes upon. It makes it like ash data to carabin
and then also Allah azzawajal says, for an hour lutherville under to come cyclotomic Lhasa caught the admin with a mood he says if you turn away I'm warning you a thunder, lightning like like the lightning of ad and some mood. So it's a thunderous wind and maybe also whether there is lightning that come with it, that had destroyed all of them.
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called that when he said no sir to be sabella oyakata do be double. It says I was given victory with a Saba and that is Eastern wind. Allah supported the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with Eastern wind add they were destroyed with a de Boer and that is Western wind. So Western wind that came from the west Eastern wind that cave, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam victory, right?
they perished, they died. And then who'd Allah has sat down with the believers they left. We don't know what happened afterwards. The story ends right there in the Quran. Nothing in this unit tells us much about what happened to hood afterwards. There is
a grave attributed to who the alayhis salaam, that in a couple of places there is police in Yemen and the acquire they say there's cupboard hood there and people go and visit it. And other place maybe in Iraq and people maybe go and visit it. But none of that is actually authentic. The only one that we are certain of the only prophet that we know where he was buried is who
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu was in for sure that we know that he's there. Others say maybe Ibrahim alayhis salam in a valley in Philistine. So there's a known grave. And you know, they say maybe Ibrahim alayhis salam, but again, we don't have direct evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah, that tells us that Ibrahim was buried there. We don't. It's just people say that. But for all the other prophets of Allah, we have no evidence to tell us that they were buried here or buried there. So the one grave attributed to houde Allah His Salaam in Yemen is not is not we do not know anything about it.
So this is the story of hood. Now why not move in sha Allah to the story of sila, La Silla,
and slightly had a salon was sent to the mood
and the mood as a tribe, they were living, and again, it's an Arab tribe, and he's an Arab prophet. And they were living in western Arabia, the western Arabian peninsula. And in fact, unlike at their places known
their place today is known. It's called a hedge or medallion
and hedged or medallion asylee. On the way to from hijas to the book, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed through it, and will tell you in sha Allah, what happened then when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, passed through it in Sharla, if we have time for it, or we'll do that with Manila next week.
So they like add, they were blessed by Allah zoton. Again, they will given strength they were given Nima and sila Elisa Lam reminds them of all of that. He says with guru with Jalla, Kampala I'm in Baghdad.
He says remember that he'd made you successors after add. So you're here again the strength the might the skill transfers
to the mood now you have power on this earth? Well, but welcome Phil out. And I've given you power on this earth. That I don't I mean, so who do you help a soda was an LG Bella Buta. It says you take from the valleys or the plane fields you build build palaces on them.
From the mountains, you carve homes out of them. You can see if you go online, right you can see some of it is still today that they carve, you can go into the mountain and you may make some kind of dwellings or palaces from that mountain. That is strength, that is skill. And you remember, this is 1000s and 1000s of years ago. So they were very skilled, and very powerful people. So he says, first guru, Allah, Allahu Allah to autofill, out of them of city. And so he says, Remember, Allah Namah upon you.
And that is the panela Always remember, the more that Allah gives you, the more that you should do what? Thank Allah once more thanking from you, the more that he gives you. So if you look at yourself, and you say, I'm healthy, I'm educated, I, you know, I'm, I have security, I'm wealthy, and then that means that there needs to be sure to Allah azza wa jal for all of this. So he is telling them, see what Allah is giving you. And the more that Allah gives you, the more that you need to thank him. And the more that you thank him, what happens, the more that Allah gives you. And if you don't thank him,
goes away. It goes away. Whatever it is, you mean knowledge, what do you know what you have memorized? What are you trying to know and memorize, or wealth, money, or health, or security, all of that because they had all of it and they lost all of it. We had security, they had money, they had wealth, they had skill, they had children, they you can name it and they lost it all because they did not thank Allah zildjian and the first way that you thank Allah is by doing what he wants. And the most important thing is that you worship Allah azza wa jal alone so then he and another is a to terracotta FEMA hoonah Armenian he says you're living here in your in your areas in your cities
secure you're not afraid. Fijian nothing What Oh, Yun was rude in wonderful in Paulo hardeen. He says you living and Allah has blessed you with abundant water. That's NEMA abundant water, you know? And then also plants and animals and what is it? What are and fruits? Delicious, easy to eat fruits? What can he do and I mean algae bellybutton fatty hain and you're carving out of mountains, with a lot of skill, homes and palaces. See what Allah has taught you?
What do they say to him? Of course, in addition, that they are worshipping other than Allah as origin. What do they say to him? How do we assign it? Whoa, I couldn't fit in or do one Kabbalah, Heather is a sila. We thought, you know, we had high hopes for you before all of this.
they noticed, he was smart. And he was wise, and he was intelligent. And he was, all the good qualities are in him. So when you look at someone like this, what do you expect is like maybe he will be our leader, or among our leaders.
So he, he's one, he's one of our special ones.
So when when he started to tell them about Allah azzawajal, he they dismissed all of it and they say sada used to be someone before this, we used to think that something was going to come out of you before this, what has happened to you, you know, what has happened to you become an outcast, silent, you can, you can join the elites, you can join you know, the ranks of the powerful. You can be among the rulers you can use, you can say whatever you want, and do whatever you want. Now, you're among the poor, you're among the weak, what are you saying? What are you doing, where are you going with all of this? And Subhanallah you know, if you are a person with data and you hear these things, it
may affect you. What am I doing, you say to yourself, why this is too hard, this is too hard. People are attacking me and this am I want to be comfortable.
So what am
I then Hannah Buddha, Buddha owner, he says, Do you want us to stop worshipping what our parents are worshipping? And we have severe doubt about these things that you're asking us to do.
And they address now the non believers they're talking to the believers.
Carlin male or Latina stick, borromean comida. Latinos today for those of his people who are proud, arrogant, and they disbelieved, are talking to those who are weak, but they are believers. They say Do you know that Sally had been sent by his Lord by his robe? He said, we believe in what he was sent with. They said, kinda letting a stock bottle but those who are arrogant, were saying inability to be careful, don't we just believe in the thing that you believe in?
And you can see here the tension.
Remember we said Who were the followers of the prophets of Allah and award the enemies of
prophets of Allah in general, what is this tension tension coming from? The elites have everything to lose the powerful, the rich have everything to lose. And plus, for instance, you know, one of the things that they want to do I want to lose this power. I don't want to listen to somebody else to tell me what to do. I'm telling people what to do, I don't want to live to be told what to do. The week on the other hand, they don't have that arrogance in them. They don't have it. So when they hear the truth, and they know that that situation, the place that they living in is not right. So when they hear the truth, they find the truth in it, and a way for change so they embrace it. Now
when the elite the powerful, they look at the weak and they say those believed in it, how could we, that's not for us. So they say you believed in it. We disbelieve in it because you believed in it. As they told Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam when he was sitting with a Mar, and Habad and the likes, they say, if you want us to sit with you, remove them.
If you want us to sit with you and talk to you remove them.
And Allah azzawajal forbade him to do that. And you cannot do this.
also, they said, Oh, no, now we go to the sign in Shell they were given a sign about who'd Allah is it it does not tell us what sign they were given. But we'll slowly he tells us that they were given a sign. They asked for a sign. And Allah xojo gave him a sign. And he said, and he tells in this area, Yoko Mayor de la Mola, Camila hero worship Allah alone, you have no inner except him.
A sign has come to you from your rub her the Hina Holla Holla come area. This is God's camel, Allah's camel assigned for you. So let it eat, you know, let it graze, don't harm it. Don't interrupt it from in the land of Allah azza wa jal and or harm it with any type of harm because you will be punished if that happens.
And in another area Allah says called a heavy naka de la shabu shabu Yeoman Malou this is a this is a camel, it will drink on a specific time and you will drink on another time. So what is this camel? What is the miracle a background story? It's not in the Quran. It's not an instrument but a background story. It says that they asked for a sign. So Silas said if I ask Allah as though Jill that from that mountain, a camel would come out. Just come out from that mountain. Will you believe they said yes. So he prayed to Allah as though Jen and a camel came out directly from that mountain.
where their eyes they could see it coming out from that mountain.
And then he said what he said there was a taco let it eat, let it eat and it's called nut law. God's camel Why? Because it's a special camel wasn't born. It's not it's not divine. Nothing divine except Allah azza wa jal. But as we say this is house of Allah azza wa jal to honor it. When we say Naka to law, what do we mean? Special camel,
let it eat, don't touch it, don't harm it. And on one day, that camel will drink. You are not allowed to drink. Right from the well. Only that camel is out to drink. If you want to drink drink from its milk, you can milk it and drink from its milk. But do not drink any water at that mode that day. The next day, it's not going to drink water, you will be able to drink she will alternate. No, you will alternate. So you have to respect that he's saying
now what happens Subhana line this is you know how
wicked they were. They couldn't leave it alone.
They could at least just let just its account we'll just leave it alone. We couldn't even leave that alone. For now though. Sahiba home further out of Africa. So again, the strong the elite came together and they said we need to kill it.
So which one of you is going to do this? So one volunteered I'm going to do this. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in a Hadith, he said the most miserable people ashkenaz the one who went to kill the camel from amongst the mood and the one who is gonna go and he's speaking to Vitaly, he is gonna go or Ollie and strike you here until this becomes wet.
He's speaking to leave Navy. He says the two miserable people. The one who killed the camel.
Yeah, and the mode and the one who is gonna come and kill us. I live nobody knew that he was in the vehicle. The one who's gonna kill you strike you here. And it's gonna make your beard wet, drenched with blood.
And Allah says in Bath Ashkar, the worst person among them went and he killed that camel. So what is Allah as dogen says, Falco, Nakata, Otto and Emery or be him well how do we are sorry, oh, Tina be mad at 809 conterminous Saudis, men and more setting so they killed the camel and they rebelled against Allah zodion and they say Salah, fine, bring us whatever you're promising us. If you're truly a prophet. Look at the challenge.
What is left, what is left
After all of these warnings after all of these reminders and that rebel rat rebellion and in addition to all of this, they wanted to kill him too. And after killing the camel, a lot of documents this in the Koran were kind of in Medina TT Sato often use you don't have a lot to do usually home. And in that city there were nine people who are corrupters on the face of this land, they were not reformers in any way. Meaning they were the worst right? The worst Carlota Casa mobila they said we will swear by Allah Zoda This is the plot lenova eterna who Allah will attack him at night and his family and finish him off will kill them all. Then we will say to his tribe, the
whoever is going to come and demand you know, why did you kill him from his family, Masha hidden or Malika Holly? We did not witness that death of your family. And we are indeed truthful. I don't know how they I don't know how they say this. were indeed truthful when we say that we did not witness it. Okay, although they're the ones who killed it, but we did not witness it and we are DND truthful. And he's Allah says Subhana Allah Koroma carcinoma Karna, Macron wahama showroom.
This is wonderful. It said they plotted and we also plotted while do they in while we they do not know fundador kafer kana Atiba to macrium so look at the outcome of their plot.
And that the marina home, walk home, that we destroyed them and all of their people says, okay, they plot and when you plot some time, especially you know, and you think you're really smart, really conniving, and you're able to do whatever you want, and Allah is looking at you. Allah is looking at you, and he's telling you, you're plotting, but I'm plotting at the same time that you are plotting, and you're going to see the outcome of your plot. The outcome of their plot was that what you have done, destroyed, you did not destroy sila, destroyed you turns against you. So this is our paper to McAfee, Beethoven, the consequence of injustice, always. Don't look at what is happening today, and
thinks of Hanalei. And when is it going to happen? It will happen. It wasn't overnight was silent. And who wasn't overnight, it took time, but it will happen. It will happen. So the consequence of that is that Allah zildjian destroyed them. What is their punishment? For okoroha? They, they killed the camel, and they tried to kill him falcoda for polytomous trophy daddy consolata em dedicado economic Louie says Silas tells them enjoy for three days. Because after the third comes a punishment to Allah Zoda This is a promise that you're going to meet it's not a lie. So Allah azza wa jal says here three things that were more Raja first of all huffy daddy him Jessie mean or Raj
for an earthquake overtake them, and it killed them. So this is a he described first as an earthquake
in another is harder to say hi to must be having the Cry. Cry is the loud sound a great loud, thunderous sound overtook them in the morning and it destroyed them. Allah says in another area in Ensenada him say hi to him again. Okay Hashem in whatever he says we've sent upon them a single cry and they became like
you know like when you have a barn when you have a barn and you have what do you call what what's what's the is escapes me in the barn.
Now the sheep but what the greys on
Hey, exactly Hey, that they step on. That's what it is. That's a shame in most of it is like hay that had been crushed. So one cry and they became like crushed hay.
So and then Allah as liveagent says, also another method for had the gnome As for thermwood, we guided them, we gave them guidance as to how Bula alhuda but they preferred blindness, over sight over beings over being able to see over knowing what the truth is, for how the tones are able to either balloon, the punishment of thunder,
the punishment of thunder overtook them SubhanAllah.
So be mechanical because of what they used to earn so and kill in all of it. Allah as it is described it as an earthquake, describes it as a cry and describe it describe it as a thunder and it could be a collection of all of it, a great cry that overtook them that it was also so great that it was thunderous, and it caused the earth to shake underneath them. And it destroyed all of them.
And then he turned away from them. And he pulled them to thermowood as also who would said to his people also saw that to his people. I've given you advice I've given you reminders, while aculeata bonamassa and you do not like those who give advice, who remind you of Allah as the origin. And so he left them with the believers and with the believers they were they survived. And again after that story, we do not know what happened to them where it started.
Buried, etc, etc. We don't know about any of these things. Now, I said
that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam passed through that area.
And under pseudo lies, a lot of them pass through it, he found that there were people ahead of him, some Muslims who are ahead of him. And he had told them what he said, Do not draw any water out of that, well, of thermwood do not drink from their water. They said, Oh prophet of Allah, but they we took out some water, we made some dough out of it, and we have it in our vessels.
He said, As for the dough, that you made the gene, do not eat it, feed it to your animals, the water spilitt and only drink from the well that that camel used to drink from, not from the other wells.
And he said, some Allahu Allah, he was selling them, he says, letter to allow him in the antique unova king, he says, Do not enter their area, unless you are crying har*a UC Berkeley mithila asaba home unless you will be harmed in the way that they were harmed or be punished the way that they were punished. So matakana then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took his clothes, and he covered his head with it. And he rode his camel, and he rushed outside, he passed through it as quickly as possible. So it's not a place for you to go, you know, and take pictures and you don't take selfies and whatever, that's not a place for you to do so. He sets a lot to send them if you're going to go
through it if you have to go through it. How do you what do you do? be crying, you have to remember a loss punishment. This is the place where people were punished. And any other place that you know, people were punished in it by Allah azzawajal you have to do the same thing. It's not a tourist attraction.
It's not a place for you to go and sit. You go if you're going to be there, if you have to be there, you'd be crying, and then you pass through it as soon as possible.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah was sensitive, very sensitive to the possibility that Allah azza wa jal could be punishing, and it could be angry at any moment. So she had a shot of the lava and he said that once she saw the profits on a cinnamon this was a habit of his, at least in the beginning.
When he saw him when he would see clouds, and it was it would be about the rain. She would start with seem anxious. He'd been beside the home, outside the home inside the home outside the home and unable to sit. She said, Oh prophet of Allah. Whenever people see clouds and they expect rain, they're happy. But when you see it, he become anxious. Why is it? He says Ayesha? How do I know that this could be like what? Who?
Said Heather, Tirana. This is rain. These are clouds that are bringing us rain. But what is it but who am I staggered to bring home fear but this is punishment from Allah. How do I know that Allah is not sending my punishment upon my oma?
So the Obama said this is probably was at the beginning of the Harlem and the beginning. before Allah gave him assurance that he is not going to punish his people while he's alive.
But before that assurance from Allah azza wa jal, he wasn't sure. Did we perhaps do something that could bring on the punishment of Allah as the origin? And if he's a prophet of Allah,
yeah, he cannot come as close as him to Allah as he's a prophet of Allah. And he's that afraid? Yeah, we see rain, we see tornadoes, they tell us about anything. We don't care, the hearts of how the law is, you know, like a rock. Not like we're brave, but stupid. Like, we don't feel we don't feel anything. But you should be sensitive enough. What is this? What if this is a punishment from Allah, this is going to kill us all. And it's not death. That is the problem is that we die in the state of disobedience. Without repenting, it's not death that is the issue but being died dying as a punishment from Allah is that and that is the problem. Right?
So that is the story of hood and his people and that is the story of sila and his people are Lima Salaam. inshallah, next week, we have Neela azzawajal. We will do the story of Ibrahim will begin in Sharla with the story of Ibrahim Ali his center. Any questions in Sharla before we stop now?
Nam sokola hair so he's saying that it's commonly said that the Arabs originate with Islam Allah Allah His Salaam, but do the Arabs predate that? But definitely the Arabs predate so the Arabs predate Ibrahim and they go all the way so if we're talking about adding some wood and they are Arabs, Arabs go all the way then. So what happens is that they
Smith. he marries from Durham and Jerome is an Arab tribe.
And Durham is a tribe that predates even his marine and predates Ibrahim. And then from his line, they come in out of that they call it the Arab Arab. And from that comes koresh and the top are up, they come from that, but there are herbs beside them. So they're not the only Arabs, they are Arabs besides them as well, and who come before them to
know I mean, in any Quraysh and most and Kenan and most of the Arabs in inhabited Arabia, they do come from there, but a lot of them not all of them, not all of them and definitely before they are absorbed not from the line of is made for sure. For sure.
So Hanalei will be handy here and
it's the same both of them are hummed in Allah as origin, but it's just the phrasing is different. The phrasing is different. Yeah.
Yes, abs Yes, Zack Allah here. There is another add particle effect. I thought like I was thinking I forgot something. I forgot something. What is it that I forgot? Now? So someone came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and he was talking to him. And he mentioned the proverb. He says, I seek a loss, protection from being like the wife of ad like the messenger, not the messenger, like from Allah. But the messenger that ad sent, or that emissary that ad sent, I seek Allah's protection from being like that. They said, he said, What is it? What is this about? And they said, the prophet knew, but he wanted to have him talk. He knew about that story. He said that what happened with God, and this is the second art. What happened with the second art is they also they experienced drought. And so they sent people from among them to go to Mecca, and to pray for rain. So the person went to Mecca with a lot
of other people, you know, maybe, I don't know, 1020 or so they went to Mecca, to pray for rain for their people at the second art. And when they went to Mecca, a person there hosted them, and he gave them you know, alcohol, and they gave them singers, and they forgot. And then they just ate and drank and ate and drank and ate and drank. After some time, they woke up and in fact, of the fact that we came here to do something, right. We came here to pray for rain. We didn't seem to, you know, drink and get drunk and you know, listen to music. That's not where we came in. They were in Mecca anyway. But anyway, so he went outside, and he said, Yeah, Allah, I'm making up for it.
They're experiencing drought, send them ring. So he sees clouds coming.
And then here's a voice from the clouds, he says, choose one of these clouds. So he goes and he picks the darkest one, maybe thinking there's a lot of rain in it, it picks the darkest one, it says that rain has fire that will not lead anyone from adult life. And it goes to add and it destroys all of ad an ad is extinct. ad is extinct. So this is called the second ad This is a headies that that is authentic. Now why do they say that this is the second ad. So first of all, there's a Canada and America. And that typically happened when after Ibrahim, and after he smiled and he was Ceylon so it could not have been the first ad. Second of all, there's an Arab and they sit and there is poetry
involved and an exchange and they say that type of poetry could not have originated all the way back at the first ad. So this is the second art so maybe they are another tribe who lived in the same area and extension of them allow them what it is, but they're called the second ad and they also gone extinct so this is the second ad closer to the time of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam we don't know exactly when but you know they're not the first act
is that they've been shot I think we have to stop because it's actually time.
inshallah any any questions in sha Allah for next week. Will Allah save them from next week is that como la jolla. So panic alarm Hamdi, the shadow Allah
