00:00:35--> 00:01:03

Leave it hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Daniel so have you seen him similar to like should La la la la de la sharika who eyeshadow Ana Mohammed Abdullah surah salatu salam O Allah. So we're concluding a series called virtues and blessings. Speaking about the three holy places in Islam. We began three weeks ago or two weeks ago with Chef what he did with Sunni on an msgid

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

and how long in Mecca

00:01:07--> 00:01:49

for the bottom of Mecca. And then last week, Chef Kemal continued with MSG, the Navy or the Ottoman Medina, and this week inshallah we'll be continuing with a message that Uppsala in Jerusalem, speaking about the virtues and blessings of these places now, beginning to speak about a message that upset people are aware that it's the third holiest site in Islam, and many people are aware of the famous Hadith as reported by Al Bukhari and Muslim in which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, as is reported by will say the whole de la to shut down the Hallo Illa Illa Saraswati masajid the prophets of Allah to send them said that journeys religious journeys are not

00:01:49--> 00:02:38

undertaken except to three places msgid Hara, which is in Mecca, MSG, the Haida and my Masjid meaning the one in Medina Well, mesti the Aqsa and Al Masjid the opposite which is in Jerusalem. And so what this Hadeeth did is it restricted the undertaking of religious journeys or pilgrimages or seeking reward from Allah subhanaw taala for the visitation itself of any particular method on this earth except for these three and it is the three that we know and message that how long and makin and messy the Navy in Medina and especially the opposite. Now, I wanted to share a number of qualities about intimacy that upset me before I did that I found it appropriate that you have to

00:02:38--> 00:03:27

zoom out because one of the things that makes it messy that upside unique is that it is placed in a general region that is blessing and that region is the region of a sham. And so before talking about the blessings of and messages that upset in particular, I wanted to speak about the blessings of a sham as a region. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says subpoena lady sob ideally the minute mistreated how long it and messy the ups and levy bar but not the first person slot. And the slot, Allah says, Exalted as he is the one who took his slave on a nice journey from investing in Makkah to invest in Uppsala to invest to the upside the one that we blessed, it's surrounding areas. And so here you

00:03:27--> 00:04:02

notice that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't just call the message itself bless it, but a lot of calls the surrounding area of MST then upside bless it, that is the area of a sham. Now what is a sham? a sham is the area that covers for modern day countries, and that is Syria, and Lebanon, and Jordan, and Palestine. And the Sham is a blessing and sacred land that Allah subhanaw taala destined to be the place of revelations, the birthplace of Prophets, and the refuge of godly men

00:04:04--> 00:04:48

of the virtues that Allah subhana wa tada mentions of a sham and the fact that its blessing is mentioned in many verses of the Quran of them is sort of tell us about the first verse that I just mentioned also, in sort of an MBI verse 71, a loss of Hana data sets when AJ now who a lot and a lot of the metabolic nafi had an item in Allah says and we saved him meaning Ibrahim and loot to the land that we blessed for the entire world or for the world's and Ibrahim Ibn taymiyyah Rahim Allah He says it is known that Allah subhanho wa Taala removed and saved Ibrahim and loot from the Arabian Peninsula and from the land of Allah to the land of a sham. And even with Moosa Allah subhanho wa

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

Taala says, Camila, Xena Can you saw the iPhone a machete or the Omega d bahala. t bolotnaya. Allah says and we cause the people who had been oppressed inherit the eastern regions of the land.

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

The Western ones which we had blessed and sort of the law of verse 137. And so it has an ability and authority they both said that this land that's bless it that Allah is talking about, is a sham. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says about Moosa himself that he says in Surah 10, verse 21, when Moosa had been part of the Exodus, or he had led the Exodus, rather, and they had left Egypt, and they had approached the city of Jerusalem, and Allah Subhana, Allah commanded them to go Enter, and if they were to fight, they would be victorious. And so moosari tsunami says, Yeah, permitholder

00:05:34--> 00:05:46

Allah can do either at the battery comfort and kalibo caecilian koszalin. Allah Subhana died or Musashi salami says, Oh, my people enter into a desert, enter into the Holy Land. Now,

00:05:47--> 00:06:24

something interesting about this concept and is one of the main meanings of a mug, this is an Mubarak. And so we see that it is something that's consistent. And this is appropriate. Why? Because one of the names of a loss of data is a produce, and it's translated as the holy and that's great, but how do you access that name? How do you access the name to do so one of the main manifestations or one of the main aspects of this name is that he is the one who blesses and so our last panel that is on who blesses certain times we heard the Hulk but today about the age and the 10 days of that he was the one who decrees times to be blessed whether it's the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Allah

00:06:24--> 00:07:04

Subhana Allah is the one who decrees places to be blessed like Mecca and Medina and a sham. Allah Subhana. Allah is the one who blesses certain people and blesses their time and blesses their actions. And so when a person is seeking blessing, one of the beautiful names to access and to ask a lot by is his name of produce, you need your time to be blessed. You need your wealth to be blessed, you need your health to be blessed that you ask a lot of data by his name and produce nonetheless. So when we hear that a lot of them so we know now that one of the meanings of a lot of them, or even the name of the city itself is blessing. It is a place that is incredibly fruit bearing. It is a

00:07:04--> 00:07:30

place that Allah subhana wa tada has blessed with revelation and with prophets. And even after the death of the prophets, it's amazing when you think of and you reflect on how many of the great scholars of Islam, people whose names are pronounced on the tongues of every Muslim, whether it's Mr. manoli, or even Tammy or the hubby or even Kathy or many, many, many famous scholars in the past and the present even hydron Escalante. They were all from this region of a sham.

00:07:31--> 00:07:36

Nonetheless, suit a man's Kingdom as well was in a sham.

00:07:37--> 00:08:15

Allah Subhana Allah says about suit a man was to the imaginary house if I didn't add Emily a lot of the metabolic nafi how we couldn't actually shake in limine. And to Solomon we subjected the wind blowing forcefully proceeding by his command towards the land which we had blessed it and we are ever of all things knowing and sort of an MBA verse 81, and a loss of Hannah to Allah mentions about Subbu that they are last panel data had placed between them and the CDs which we had blessed many visible cities which I know they know whom obey know Potala, t Baraka, Pura Vida Ratan waka darkness he has said, Allah Subhana Allah speaks about the cities that he has blessed. And those cities that

00:08:15--> 00:08:47

he's talking about our cities in a sham and so many many, many different verses are talking about this land being a land that Allah subhana wa tada has blessed, but not just that. If you look at the hadith of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam, you'll find that he many times spoke about the blessings of a sham, spoke about the blessings of this region. And I want to preface this when we hear about the Hadith of the Prophet list in them and all of these Heidi's that I'm going to list them probably going to miss list six or seven of them. I want you to remember that when the prophets of Allah do send them was alive, a sham was not Muslim.

00:08:49--> 00:09:32

When he was alive, there was no Islam in a shot. So he was talking about a place that up until that time, no Muslims had approach no Muslim. There was no Muslim presence in a shop. And yet he is praising a sham and talking about a sham being this incredibly special place is inspected incredibly blessed place, this place that is going to be such a, a pillar for the oma of Islam, and that is part of his prophecy. Some of it is in them. So the first Hadith is a little soon lost a little I do send them as narrated by zedi mytho. But he says, Kula could Nando Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam no le for an Minerva. He says we were with little pseudo loss of Elias and them collect collecting the

00:09:32--> 00:09:37

Koran on pieces of cloth, and then also lost a little light and sent them he said to buy the Sham,

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

glad tidings to a shop.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

Great news, fresh, glad tidings. And they said he also the law What for? Why is that? And he said Lana mela, man, ha ha ha ha ha. He says because the angels of man are spreading their wings over it. And so this is an activity and so

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

How'd you learn who their world is between Mecca and Medina and the Arabian Peninsula and the province of Allied his enemies telling them that the angels of Oman are spreading their wings over this area of a shop. Secondly, are the second Hadeeth the province from the lightest and and tells us that a sham is the chosen land of Allah subhanho data. Even However, he says that will soon have lost the light SNMP says Slayer sealord omro ella and takuna julu the magenta jundo, bisha magenta medium and Iraq, he said that there will come a time when you will be armed troops, one group of troops will be in a sham. And another group of troops will be an alarm clock, and another group of

00:10:40--> 00:11:21

troops will be in Yemen. And so even how odd is that he also law if I live to see that time when the Muslims will be in these groups choose for me which one should I go to? Which one should I go to and so the prophets of Allah sent me He told me he said go to a sham. He said go to a sham for it is a loss chosen Len, I think could be Sham for in nazira to block him in our day. It is a lush chosen land to which his best servants will be gathered. And the Hadees continues and this isn't a Buddhahood authenticated by shuffle and Bonnie third Hadith here. The prophet SAW the light is in the mentions that the pillar of the book was placed in a sham. What does that mean? From the

00:11:21--> 00:11:29

lighting However, he says that was a sort of loss of ally do send them he says a two letter lucidity be removed and abiotic and

00:11:31--> 00:11:46

middlemen America. He says I saw on the night that I was taking on the Knights journey, a pillar that was white in the Hulu as if it is made of Pearl. It was being carried by the angels. And

00:11:47--> 00:12:00

I asked them and I said what are you carrying? And they said to him, we are carrying the pillar of Islam. We are carrying the pillar of Islam and we were commanded to place it in a shop

00:12:01--> 00:12:08

and the prophets of Allah it was said to them he says will be in my name or at a Moodle kita

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

Teresa mentality Roxy

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

Fernando and Allah tala tala me out

00:12:18--> 00:12:22

first back to hooba. Sorry, hold on swatter and been a

00:12:23--> 00:12:31

sham, the province on the light as the name says and I saw a pillar that was being taken almost as if it was from beneath my pillow.

00:12:32--> 00:12:41

And I thought that maybe Allah subhanaw taala had left the people of Earth, like there was no more revelation or anything coming anymore to the people of Earth.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

And

00:12:44--> 00:13:07

they said to him, the angels they said to him that this is the pillar, he says I followed it with my eyes. And I saw that it was something that was being carried to and placed in a sham Mahmoud Al Kitab and is in abdus salam he says that this amoud Al Kitab. What the prophet SAW Sanam is describing this pillar that is being placed in a sham is a man, it's faith, that faith is present in a shop.

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

And it is amazing when you think of

00:13:14--> 00:13:52

rasuna loss of a lighthouse and I'm talking to the top of the line whom about a shaman. This was a place that they had not even approached yet. But he was informing them and letting them know that a sham would become Muslim, and that iraq would become Muslim and Yemen would become Muslim. And an authentic hadith he told them and he said, because there's also a debate with regards to you know, you hear all of these Heidi's about a sham which one is better to live in? Is it better to live in a sham then is it better to live in these places? Or is it better to live even in a place as beautiful as Medina and so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says and unauthentic IDT says that you will

00:13:54--> 00:14:02

conquer an era and people will travel to it. And Medina is better for them if they knew and you will conquer

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

Yemen and people will travel to it. People are gonna want to move there.

00:14:08--> 00:14:49

And Medina is better for them if they knew and you will conquer a sham and people will travel there and they'll relocate there and they'll resell it there and he says and Medina, Medina to hydro dam located near the moon and Medina is better for them, if they only knew. But nonetheless, the virtues of a sham are undeniable the prophets lie they send them in our fourth Hadith here he prayed for it to be blessed, ignorant of the line who he reports and this hadith is in Buhari that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says Allahumma bodek Lena aficio Amina Allahumma bodek Lena feminina the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh Allah bless our Sham and bless our Yemen. makalu or they said God who was

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

the energy Deena and the province of the lightest and is it alone MOBOTIX Nafisa Mina Loma, Linda Nina. So the province of the light is missing or LA bless our shaman bless our young

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

And then the people who are wisdom said, What about nudge?

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

And nudge is an area that's considered at all.

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

And so the problem is the lesson and didn't respond and he just continued sing along. Nobody showed me nobody gonna be Amina. And then they said, What about an edge and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he says

00:15:20--> 00:15:36

punakha Zilla is in well fitted wabi Hyattsville Roca yaku corner shavon. He said, he commented them about an edge and he said there that is where the earthquakes are. And that is where the Phaeton are, and from there emerges the head of Satan

00:15:37--> 00:16:09

are facing fifth heads. And so the province a little light is added and prayed for a sham and Yemen both to be blessed. But not only that, interestingly, and amazingly, a sham is a yardstick for the righteousness of the ummah. a sham is a yardstick for the righteousness of the household. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says in a hadith reported by Timothy who created it as a hadith and Quran and Allah tala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam either further the evolution, philosophy.

00:16:11--> 00:16:43

He says when the inhabitants of a sham become corrupt, then there is no good in you. There's no good and in all, when the people have a sham, the people of these regions become corrupt when their morality has become corrupted when their religiosity when their religion is become corrupted. And so the people of a sham are a yardstick and you'll be amazed to see that truly.

00:16:45--> 00:17:04

Allah Subhana Allah continues to test them and test them and test them and every time in place, right, that particular region, you know, people, they look at the Middle East, and they say, Man, that place is full of conflict, and it's been conflict for 1000s of years. And you know, yes, and no, right? The answer is yes and no.

00:17:05--> 00:17:21

No, there are many times of peace there. But yes, there's also been many times of conflict. And it is indicative of a loss of Hannah Tada, testing them and bringing them back though that particular region to their Lord and to their religion and to his religion.

00:17:22--> 00:18:02

And this hadith that I mentioned, is reported by a Timothy who created as a hands on Hadith. Our six Hadith is that there will always be a host of people from this ummah, who are upon the truth. They are not afflicted by those who forsake them. Those people who surrender them, those people who go against them, the prophets the lie to send them he says, as the hadith of romilda behind he says, I heard from Alia even Abby soufiane, that more Alia said I heard her sort of loss of ally do send them say, laser luminometer metal image can be Emery La, la, la Roman, hodeida, homearama and high level home hot at home.

00:18:04--> 00:18:09

That there will continue to be from my oma an oma a group of people who are upon

00:18:10--> 00:18:43

the command of Allah, they will not be harmed by those who forsake them or those who are go against them until the command of a law comes while they're on that state. If everybody changes their religion, they're not going to change their religion. If everybody lets go of the rope of a law, they're going to hold on, they're not going to change. And yet, morality may be soufiane was told that morality Jebel, the great companion from the onslaught, morality manageable said, Those people are in a shop, those people are in a shop. And the reality is with this particular Hadeeth

00:18:44--> 00:19:20

this particular lady that's talking about a group of myoma will always be upon the truth, you'll find that different people said different things. So amendment Buhari, and the scholars of howdy they said about this particular group of people because it's incredible braised praise from Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, they said that it this is talking about Hadith, that this hadith is talking about the people of Hadith, that they're the ones who are holding on to the truth, and they're the ones who are not changed, and they're the ones. And the way to resolve that, or a way to resolve it is that this group can be different people at different times, and different places in

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

the domain. So morality major, but he said that this is talking about the people of the shot of a sham. And that is true. And remember why he said it is talking about the people of Hadith. And in reality during the moment, it is time that people have had if they served Islam in a way that was required at their time. different times people didn't necessarily need heads to be served in the way that the great collectors of Hadith served during their lifetimes, right and during that period of Islam and so Islam as it continues to evolve and as the Muslim oma continues to evolve, you're going to need people to serve the oma in different capacities in different ways. Nonetheless, that is the

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

Hadeeth of it.

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

group of people amongst my own. The seventh Heidi's here at the province level it sent him tells us that a sham is a land of many martyrs. It's a land of many Shahada. He says a tiny gibreel jabril came to me with fever well thought when he came to me with fever and with the plague. And so the fever was sent to and Medina and a thought or was sent to a sham.

00:20:23--> 00:20:46

plague was sent to a sham for our own Shahada to lumati warahmatullah, who married soon, Angelica theory. And this hadith is reported by Mohammed. He says jabril came to me carrying fever and plague fever was kept in Medina, and plague was sent to a sham. And plague is a martyrdom for my oma and mercy and wrath upon the disbelievers. And so plague

00:20:47--> 00:21:16

has touched the region of a shot many times over from the dawn of Islam as early as the army of vadym ninjalah about the law, verbatim ninja has won a national membership in magenta is one of the 10 words promised paradise and his army in Syria was affected by a plague in the year 638 to 639, after the HIPAA law, and I'm having a hot topic on the line who because he loved a beta so much when he heard of the plague. He wrote a letter to me Then he told him, he said, Come back, I need you for something urgent immediately in Medina.

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

And what he needed was for Obrigada to live.

00:21:21--> 00:21:46

So whenever a beta heard have received the letter from a middle manager, he wrote him a letter back. And he said, I would like to stay with my, my, my troops, and 25,000 Muslims died in that plague in a sham 638 to 639, great companions passed away like a bit of a damage Allah Himself, like more either nibble of the line.

00:21:47--> 00:22:11

And his son Abdullah, they both died, died in that plague in a shot. But not only that, when you fast forward and you look at the you know, the the plague of the Middle Ages, the Black Death, it touched a sham as well. And it was said that in the year 1348, between April 10, and may 10 10,000 people died in Hudson, from that plague from the plagues affected in the year since then.

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

asked for.

00:22:16--> 00:22:31

Or I think that's seven Hadeeth is enough for a sham. I want to spend some time also speaking specifically about debates on McAleese and messy democracy. And so as for the upside of the virtues of investing, the upside is that it was the second message ever built.

00:22:34--> 00:23:08

above the line, who he asked me to sort of last on the lightest sentiment, this hadith is authentic. It's in Bukhari and Muslim. He says, which Masjid was built first masuleh, last July to send them says and message there. How long was the message that was built first. And then he said, which one is built after that? He says, an upset. And then he said, Well, how much time was in between them? How much time was in between their two buildings? He said 40 years. And then the province of Allied isn't until double.he says and wherever you find the time for prayer, pray, because it is all a Masjid for you, wherever you are.

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

This brought up the debate

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

of who built and messy that held on and who built and invested that oxygen.

00:23:19--> 00:23:28

Because generally fewer did a you know common knowledge is that the measure that held up and Cabo was built by Ibrahim alayhis salam and especially the opposite was built by Sudan man.

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

But this hadith here

00:23:32--> 00:23:53

causes a person to question that narrative. Why because the Prophet salallahu alaihe. Salam authentically says that there's 40 years in between and Mr. Holloman and must see the upside. And there are over 1000 years between the below him is that I'm in Sudan, I didn't set up. And so how do we resolve this? How do we resolve this? The first

00:23:54--> 00:24:34

opinion is that Adam built the Kaaba, and then his children built an axon. And so when you have the building of Ibrahim that would come later and the building of Sulaiman It is simply rebuilding. Right? these are these are foundations that are there or these are houses of worship that had been built, and then they were simply rebuilt by their children who came after. So Adam built a Kava, and then his children built an upside and other opinion and these are all mentioned by Evan hedger. In fact, Halle Berry. Another opinion is that Ibrahim built el Kava, and then he built an axon. And so overall, he built both that he built both massages, and between the time between them was 40 years.

00:24:34--> 00:24:49

A third opinion is that Ibrahim built the GABA and the APU, his grandson built an upset and so a man rebuilt that upset. And so Ibrahim built in GABA, and then jacoba cerami built an upset and there are more opinions that the angels built them and, and others as well.

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

Nonetheless,

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

it was the second message ever built for a loss of Hana to add on earth. And our second virtue of an upside is that it is where the profit

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

It's intended and migrated to, it is the place where they migrated to. It is where it below him and looked at him as set up they migrated to. It is where Moosa is intended to take Benny Islam he, in fact, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Bahati. He tells us that Moosa is set up when the angel of death came to approach Moosa.

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

When the angel of death came to approach Musa Musa didn't recognize the angel of death, and he slapped him a slap that blackened his eyes

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

or defiled his eye.

00:25:39--> 00:25:47

And so the Angel of Death returned to Allah and told him he said, you're, you have sent me to a servant who does not want to die.

00:25:48--> 00:26:25

Imagine that Musashi cerami punches the angel of death or he slaps the angel of death. But it was said that the angel of death came in human form, because the angels many times they come in human form and so Moosa, all he knows is this guy approaching him and he doesn't know who he is. And so he slapped him and then you know, people ask the question, well, how did how does Moses slap an angel? Like, how does that even work? The scholars they answered that by saying, Allah Subhana tada allowed it. That's how it works. A lot allowed for Moosa to slap this angel. Nonetheless, Allah Subhana, Allah told him, he told the angel of death and he said, return to Him, and tell him to put his hand

00:26:25--> 00:27:04

on the back of an ox. And for every hair that he will, that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life. So tell Moosa to grab the the hairs from the ox. And whatever he can pull out, however, many hairs will end up being in his hand. That's how many years of life he will have. And then Musa he said, Oh, Lord, what will happen after that, on the last panel die, and I said to him, then death, Moses said, If that's the case, then let it come down. And then Moses then requested a lot to let him die close to the sacred land, so much so that he would be at a distance of a stone's throw away from it. Let me come close to inputs. Let me be just a stone's throw away from a mystery

00:27:04--> 00:27:23

that he never he never got there. He never got the chance to actually enter it. Because Benny Ancelotti, they rejected his offer when he told them to go in and fight and you will be of the victorious they said oh Moosa, you and your Lord, go fight. You know, there's a tyrannical people in the city. So you and your Lord, go fight, and we are here.

00:27:25--> 00:27:55

We're going to simply be sitting here and so what ended up happening was they then had to wander in the desert for many, many years because of that. Moosa, it set up at the conclusion of his life and he never entered into the Holy Land. He says, oh, Allah, let me then just be a stone's throw away from it. And moosari ceram passed away a stone's throw away from it. And Abu huraira says that also loss of the lightest and upset if I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sand hill on the side of the road.

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

So the prophets of the light SLM nozomu says grievous.

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

Interestingly, another virtue of this place is that it experienced a miracle that no human being ever experienced ever before. And that was that the sun stood still, the sun stood still in its heavenly course, for the conquest of Jerusalem. The province of Allied SLM he told us that a profit from amongst the profits carried out a holy military expedition. And this man this profit is you shall be known, you shall be known, was the the young man who has the assistance of Moses in sort of thing calf, when Moses talking on Allah subhanaw taala, talking about the fact that the young man that's with Moses, on his journey to inhibit this man you shall be known,

00:28:46--> 00:29:35

would grow up to be a prophet, and after Moses, passing away, you shall be known would lead his community, the children of Israel, to capturing or conquering the city of Jerusalem. How did that happen in the province the lie they sent me says Plaza and Abu millet ambia one prophet from amongst the prophets was in a Muslim in a military campaign. And he said to his people lie It's biological Malika Bilal a Marathi well Who are you redo and Yabba Neva Neva. He said, Let no man Follow me. He's addressing his his army now. And he says, Let no man Follow me. Who has gotten married to a woman? Like you've done the contract? But you haven't actually lived with her yet?

00:29:36--> 00:29:46

Like, if you have something that you're waiting for, then don't come with me. And let no man follow me who has built a house and he hasn't completed the roof over it.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

At Let no man Follow me. And he says and let no man follow me who has sheep or sheep camels and he's waiting for the birth of their young ones. And so you shall be known as basically saying if you have

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

Anything that you're waiting for in this world, there's anything that you're looking forward to something that you want to come back for then don't stay home. Don't come with me. He's not looking for numbers. He's looking for sincerity. He's looking for a loss. And so the Prophet cellulitis and them says that this prophet carried out the expedition. And when he reached that town, or the time or nearly at the time of the apostle prayer, he said to the sun, the sun was its time of acid, and the sun is about to set. He said, Oh, son, you are under a large order, and I am under a loss order, Oh Allah stop the sun from setting

00:30:36--> 00:30:38

and the sun stopped, and this is in Mojave.

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

And so this man

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

said to the sun, you are

00:30:44--> 00:31:23

under a loss control and I'm under a loss control because he didn't want the Sabbath the commerce the savage came, then everything would be halted. And so he commanded or he asked the law, to make the sun stop in its course, and the province level it was setting up the Hadees itself and it doesn't mention you shall be known. So how do we know that it's you shall be known because of a hadith as reported by Ahmed about what Allah says that Rasulullah sallallahu do send them says, Maha obesity shampoo Allah Sharon cut Illa Allah you shall be known lady Salah intubating maka, this, he says that the sun never stood still for anybody ever, except for you shall be known when he was

00:31:23--> 00:31:43

campaigning, to conquer beta democritus or Jerusalem. And so beta not this is the abode of the prophets, the abode of yaku, the prayer place of doubt, the prayer place of Mary, and the abode of Solomon, Solomon and Zachariah and john the baptist, and Jesus, all of these prophets walk through that land. All of them lived there.

00:31:45--> 00:32:06

Either migrated there were born there or died there. It's an incredibly blessed place. What then when a person goes to bait and muck this when you go and you pray there, what's the what's the reward? What do you get? The Prophet peace be upon me told us salatu salam of the prayer of su de man. And so whoever built the beta map this is the first time

00:32:08--> 00:32:31

should a man rebuilt it that would began rebuilding it but soon a man is the one who completed rebuilding it. And when should a man built based on this he prayed for three things. The prophet SAW the lights and tells us as reported by even imagine that Sudan man prayed for three things. Number one, he prayed for judgment that would be in harmony with God's judgment. He wanted his ruling to be in accordance with God's ruling.

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he was given that

00:32:36--> 00:32:56

and then he asked for a Dominion the likes that no one would ever have other than Him. And the province of Alberta said themselves and he was given that as for the for the third thing, Allah yet he hasn't missed it. I hadn't. La Rue de la sala de la la hora de means Ruby como la.

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

He says

00:32:59--> 00:33:06

that nobody comes to this message, not desiring to do anything in it except to pray

00:33:07--> 00:33:25

except that they leave that message, having their sins forgiven, like the day their mother gave birth to them. The prophets, the lowlights, none of them commented and he says, I'm with Nathan for call Dorothea Houma. What are you and your kunafa Dorothea salita? He says as for the first two he was given,

00:33:26--> 00:33:37

and I hope that he was given the third. And so a person goes in they pray in better Morocco, this hoping that when they leave that prayer, that their sins are forgiven.

00:33:40--> 00:34:00

of the virtues of beta mock This is that it is the first Qibla the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When he was in Makkah, he was directed to pray towards Jerusalem, even though he was in Mecca. And even though the Kaaba was right there, his Qibla his direction of prayer was north towards Jerusalem. And even when he migrated to Medina,

00:34:02--> 00:34:15

he and the early Muslim community while they were in Medina, and Mecca was south of them. For the first 16 months they would pray north towards Jerusalem until the verses were revealed in sort of Bukhara,

00:34:17--> 00:34:36

but Nara talaga Chica sama, Fela nolin la casa Bella tanto de las panatela then changed the direction of the Qibla to be from North to towards Jerusalem towards south towards Mecca. But it was the first Scribbler and originally the Qibla was the Dome of the Rock itself.

00:34:37--> 00:34:53

Interestingly enough, it was the Dome of the Rock itself and when the Muslim army entered into Jerusalem, do you know the story The they surrendered the city in Jerusalem but they surrendered it they said we want to surrender it to the person that we find in our books. And so when the Muslim army

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

was told of the description, they said we know who that man is, but he's in Medina it was out of nowhere.

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

And so on Omar, when he received not that the city wants to surrender, and they're requesting your presence to surrender, Omar took the journey to Jerusalem. And when he took the journey, he approached beta noctus. And when he saw that he saw a beta of this. And by the way, what is beta of this beta not this

00:35:19--> 00:36:00

is not the Dome of the Rock. That's number one. It's not the Dome of the Rock many times I wish we could have a picture, but unfortunately, we can't. But the that famous dome is not based on luck of this beta mock. This is actually a compound. It's a compound. And it's a fenced compound. It's a very large fenced compound, included it is a number of places. And so of the places is the Dome of the Rock. And that's the famous image that most people associate with baited Muftis. But that's not the method itself. That's just the Dome of the Rock. And the Dome of the Rock didn't exist during the time of the prophet or a mod or a block or a man or the Hooda. It came later.

00:36:02--> 00:36:24

When did they come? I'll share in a second, oh my God, the Lord. When he came, he came and he said, this is the prayer place that the prophet SAW Allah to send them this is the place that was built by that would that the province of aleida send them was taken to on the night's journey. And then he consulted his companions. He asked cabinet about and he said to him

00:36:26--> 00:36:30

was a Jewish convert to Islam? He said to him,

00:36:31--> 00:36:52

Do you know where the sucker is? Do you know where the rock itself is? And he told him Yes. And he directed him to where it was. And at that time, it had it was a it was a it was a it was a dump basically, it was filled with trash and waste and so on, had it cleaned. And then the extroverted or they brought out the they place the rock.

00:36:53--> 00:37:31

And then Omar suggested and he asked them, well, where should we How should we make the table? Or where should we place the message. And so God's suggestion was, place it behind the Dome of the Rock. And so when the people are praying, they are praying to the two people as they're praying to you know, they're the Dome of the Rock is in front of them. And they're still praying towards Mecca. And Omar on the line who rejected that idea forcefully. And he said, No, absolutely not. We are going to pray. Because aroma is so sensitive, right? He's so sensitive to any sort of innovations coming into the religion. He was always like that, well, the alarm and that's the way the Sahaba

00:37:31--> 00:38:05

were, they were they were trying to protect the religion from any sort of deviance from the religion of the province, the lesson of the Dome of the Rock in and of itself has no significance for us in any sense of of, of any virtue. There's no virtue there, you don't go when you go to a doctor, you don't touch the Dome of the Rock, you don't make the offer on the Dome of the Rock, you don't do anything. Rather, um I don't belong who made it a point to have the masjid in front of the Dome of the Rock. So actually, it's it's the Dome of the Rock is not in your line of vision when it comes to the table at all. Right? It's the Mecca is uninterrupted why so the people there's a clear

00:38:05--> 00:38:16

distinction between where we pray and art they blur versus the previously blur. And it being a previous Qibla does not bring it any sort of you know, extra virtue now because

00:38:17--> 00:39:01

you know, as certainly have islamically told me he mentions just like, you know, the the Saturday was the holiday during the law of Moses and Friday became the holiday during the law of mammoth holiday sentiment. So a person doesn't single out Saturday or Sunday with any sort of act of worship or any sort of ritual, because these are days that are abrogated. It is Friday, that is our holiday similarly, it being the first clip law is not anything that a particular person or it's not anything that becomes you know, virtuous for us. When did it when did the dome get its dome? It was built during the time of I've done many, many more one and I've done medikamente Milan so you have a

00:39:01--> 00:39:37

number of qualified that happened and the the rock itself was uncovered. You have a walker and Roma northman. And it the rock is uncovered. You have my baby Sophia and you have yours even new Malia you have more one of these guys. That Dome of the Rock is uncovered. I've been medicham the old one takes over a sham and all of a sudden now he's creating this dome. Why was he creating the dope? He created it for political reason not for a religious reason. The political reason was that I've done medical marijuana had a current i can a contender for the silica and that contender was in Mecca, and that's the son of his very winner. I want the great companion himself to live in his bed. And so

00:39:37--> 00:39:55

people would go to Hajj in Macau, of course. And they would meet with the likenesses of it. And this guy is this guy's contesting him for the alpha. And so this fitna that happened between the lighting is the bed and I've done medical metal out mod one. So I have the medical note one

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

wants to divert people away from going heads.

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

So what does he do? He builds this dome over beta magnets because what does a sham have a sham has beta magnets and so he wants people to come towards beta and mock this. So he needs a little bit more tourism or religious pilgrimage to beta mock this and so he invests in beta blockers and he invests in the dome and he used the cloth in the summer and in the wintertime, and so it was done for political reasons, but nonetheless, it stayed ever since then. So it's the first dibbler

00:40:29--> 00:40:32

another virtue of beta mock This is it time for the adventure.

00:40:33--> 00:41:17

My five minutes okay. Another virtue of vatan Mk This was that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taken on his a slot there, the promises that he was taking on the Knights journey there. The question that the scholars asked is why beta knock this? Why didn't the Prophet so I said, I'm just go on the Mirage straight. What's the purpose of this slot? Why from Mecca to Jerusalem in a single night, the slot is the famous Knights journey and ascension of the prophets. Nobody said him that he experienced in the 10th year of his prophethood that he was taken at night to Jerusalem, body and soul, right? Because that's how its miraculous that he was taken in his body as well. And he was

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

then ascended to the heavens.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

Why Jerusalem, the scholars mentioned a number of reasons. Number one,

00:41:24--> 00:42:03

is by him going to Jerusalem, it creates a proof against the polytheists and those who doubted him. Because if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam simply the next morning told them, I ascended to the heavens, there would have been no mechanism for which the machine or the polytheists to test him, because they don't know anything about the heavens. They've never journeyed to the heavens, no one's ever journey to the heavens, what questions are you going to ask about the evidence. But when he says to them, I've traveled to Jerusalem tonight. And I came back last night. Well, then the machine again, they've traveled to Jerusalem to and they know Jerusalem because of their trade and because

00:42:03--> 00:42:40

of their travel. And so they can ask him and quiz him about beta muchness. And they know that he's never been there, and he's never seen it. So they can ask him about beta blockers. And they did. So they quiz the province on the lightest seven where they tested him about beta blockers in the province of Alberta, they sell them. He says, When they asked me about some of this, I became scared, or I became very apprehensive because he was worried that he wasn't going to remember. And then he said, Djibouti, Riley ceram placed an image of beta monkeys in front of my eyes. And I began describing in incredible detail everything there. And so this became a proof against the machine

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

again. Another

00:42:43--> 00:42:56

reason why the scholars mentioned that he had went to beta mock This was because of honoring Russell, the loss of the lightest, because of everything that we've mentioned. It is the first clip learned is the second house of a lot to ever be established on earth. And it is the,

00:42:58--> 00:43:04

you know, place that was intended and migrated to by all of the profits and sold the loss of ally there's no mistaking there to pray there.

00:43:05--> 00:43:14

Another virtue of beta noctus is that it is a place in which prayers are multiplied. Prayers are multiplied in between methods.

00:43:16--> 00:43:32

You'll read a lot of different narrations as to how many times the prayers are multiplied. And so it will call according to the narrations, you'll see as high as 50,000 20,000 1500.

00:43:34--> 00:44:16

authentically, it's reported that in MSG, that how long in Mecca it's 100,000. When you pray one prayer there, it's the equivalent of 100,000. When you pray in the midst of the prophets, the mobile they send them it's 1000. The province of the light they send them was asked by Abu Dhabi. And this is a hadith that's reported by Al Hakim and it's the most authentic hadith in this regard. He asked Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam which place is better is a messy the Nebu better or is it better and so the prophets the lightest send them praying in which one would praying in which one is better? And so also the last little light SLM says that praying in my message equals four prayers in the message

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

that officer

00:44:18--> 00:44:27

Salatu famous god of blooming elderberry Salatin fee was determined masala who he says it is equal to four. So how many prayers is that?

00:44:28--> 00:44:46

250 and he says in what an excellent prayer places that what an excellent prayer he says that. So 250 is the most authentic and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. And then he says and there will come a time when a person will have told them Actually, yes inshallah Toba

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

Shadow

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

a shadow and

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

Russell

00:46:55--> 00:47:36

so way to not this is a place where prayers are multiplied and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he continued to comment and he says Salah in my message is more than four times the reward and what an excellent prayer places beta mock this whether you can add in your coin illogical mythical chutney fallacy mithila sharply fallacy II mean a lot of the havior I mean, who bait and muck this higher on lomira dunya Jamia Carlo Carlo higher on la mina Junior mafia, the prophet cellulitis and it says and there may come a time, when a person having the size of a rope of land from which they can see beta knuckles is more beloved to them than the world and everything in it. Or he said that the

00:47:36--> 00:47:41

entire world, that there may come a time when if a person just has a little piece of land,

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

oh, no tiny one room, or

00:47:48--> 00:48:22

anything from which they can access at least be able to see beta mock This is more beloved to them than the world and everything in it. And this, you know, the scholars commented on this. And they said, it's as if the prophet SAW said him was talking about this time. And scholars found a lot who commented on this hadith and the ad said that if there's if the prophet SAW Selim is talking about this time, but basically there's, there's this conflict, right. And there will be times that people will not have access to beta mouthless. And they would wish that they could be able to just see beta macness they wish that they'd be able to just pray in beta mock this. But this also alludes

00:48:23--> 00:48:26

to something else, and that is that

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

beta mock this.

00:48:30--> 00:49:03

And the region of a sham in general, is especially virtuous and incredibly present, when it comes to the conversation about the end of days. And so not just with robots who also lost a cinema as described and not just what's happened in the past and not just what's even present. But at the end of days, you'll see that it'll sort of Lhasa cinema mentions many different events that happened, and they all take place in a sham whether it is the return of Jesus Christ, a province of Eliasson dimensions that he will descend

00:49:05--> 00:49:08

by the minarets of the masjid in Damascus.

00:49:09--> 00:49:31

Or it is the Antichrist and the battle against the Antichrist and the killing of the Antichrist, which happens in Palestine, or whether it is yeah jujin juge and they run roughshod over the earth. Gorgon Magog. And Isa is Salam and the believers Jesus Christ in the believers returned back

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

to

00:49:34--> 00:49:59

a sham or they're in a sham and they ask lots of Hana data to remove yeah jujin Majid from this earth. All of this is taking place in a sham and so a sham is this place of, of, of faith and and testing until the end of days. And maybe that is why they are as a loss or the profit symbol bitis m says in a sham resides a loss chosen once from his

00:50:01--> 00:50:28

There are a few things that I wanted to conclude with. And these are questions that come up a lot with regards to and Mr. That officer. Number one is what is an admission officer. And we said that it's not just the Dome of the Rock. It's not just the Dome of the Rock. And it's not just the message itself, but it's the entire prayer place. It's the entire complex, the entire complex. And that is what is mentioned as admission officer in the past and the present. The second thing is a lot of people make the mistake of calling it a hot item

00:50:29--> 00:50:50

of how a man could see or what have you, or the third how long an admissions officer is not how long. It's not how long there's only two outcomes. There's one outcome that's agreed upon by unanimous consensus. And that is the message that how long in Mecca and there is a measure the number which is a hadham. According to the majority of the scholars, it was held as a hot item by magic and a chef in Mount Mohamad.

00:50:52--> 00:51:10

And so that's called item two and MSU. The number we asked for admission, the lock, so it's not a hot item. Why is it called not a call to item it's because a hot item has particular rulings. A hot item is called the hot and because it's a sanctuary, there are things that you are not allowed to do in a hot item, such as hunting, it's

00:51:12--> 00:51:21

animals such as plucking from its trees or cutting down its trees. There are rules with regards to Holloman. None of that is found with regards to MSU the officer

00:51:23--> 00:51:49

is there anything special that's done in animals to the upside, there's nothing that's special that's done an image of that officer, like you wouldn't do in any other questions. It's not like a mystery. It's like a mystery, the Navy in that sense, and that there's no actual unique acts of worship that are done in a mystery that officer a whereas in Aqaba, of course, or in an admissible hallum there's so many different unique acts of worship that are done there. But in a mystery, the lochside it's, it's what you would do in any other message.

00:51:51--> 00:51:52

And is there

00:51:54--> 00:52:15

a hadith The last thing that I want to mention is there's a hadith it's a beautiful Hadith, although it's weak, it's controversial, some scholars consider it to be weak, and some scholars considered it to be authentic. And that is the hadith of maimunah. Who said that she asked Rasulullah sallallahu sentiments reported about Buddhahood. And now Corolla fttp baited mark this

00:52:16--> 00:53:02

color to he said, Go go to it. She said, Tell us about beta. Or tell us what we should do about beta monkeys. He said, Go to beta knock this for some goofy go and pray in it. And she says what kind of thing below do is that? How about she said during that time that it was all war in that area. But she's asking him and then the province level vice m says for England to who was on lofi furbearers rubies 18 usila doofy can ideally, he says if you can't go and pray in bed and muck this, then send some oil to be used in its lamps send some oil to be used in its lamps. So this hadith is reported by without it was authenticated by half of that errata. It was authenticated by a hobby it was

00:53:02--> 00:53:14

authenticated by a no it was authenticated by shekel Albania at one point and then he held it to be week at another point at a later point. And so some scholars consider it to be authentic, and some scholars called it to be weak. But nonetheless,

00:53:15--> 00:53:41

this hadith is encouraging us that even if you can't pray in messages and upset, and at the time of maimunah It was a time of war that you can still serve message the officer. And so the prophets the lightest send them encouraged us to send oil to light it's it's lamps. And there's much that can be done to serve misty than upside now. And one of the

00:53:42--> 00:53:46

greatest ways or if not the greatest way is there are.

00:53:48--> 00:53:54

But the question that we have to ask ourselves is do I even make a draw for me to mock this or the people who create a mock this we just prayed mother?

00:53:56--> 00:54:36

Did it have any share of my insalata Muslim? Do I ever make tough for them? And this is drought is effective. And we believe in the power of drought. And so number one is drought. There's much also that can be done. Number two is spreading awareness about bait and muck this you know something interesting that they say about the early in the early scholars of history, that when they would talk about an underdose they would say add the Allahu elayna the early scholars of underdose whenever they would mention it under loose they would say May Allah subhanaw taala return it to us after they had lost an endless the Muslims had lost the scholars after they would always historians,

00:54:36--> 00:55:00

they would always say May Allah return it under a Swiss marine law return to the source. But over time, that phrase began being erased from the pen of those scholars or those not there that particular generation but generations past. And so after a while it becomes something where it's just becomes you're not even asking for it anymore. And I just witnessed the weakest of people and the most incredible

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

pool of people are the people who are incapable of making that. So number one is drought number two is to actually enliven the discussion about an oxide and talking about an oxide and encouraging people. Number three is if a person actually has the opportunity to to go to an oxide than to go to an oxide and to undertake that journey and to see an upside and to see the message because these things these journeys they tie a person to those places for a lifetime. And also for people who haven't gone it's a picture and it's virtuous but for the person who has actually gone it becomes an experience and it becomes emotion and it becomes

00:55:37--> 00:55:37

memories

00:55:39--> 00:55:46

so we'll end here inshallah Tata are some of the lightest and I'm gonna do it so have you seen him to see me? Zack mobile head cinematic moto Baba.
