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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was happy

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

tonight inshallah we continue the journey with our Prophet nor alayhis salaam

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

we continue the journey with profit, no Holly his salon

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

in a time

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

where only a very small amount of people

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

had believed in him.

00:00:56--> 00:01:00

Our scholars differ on how many actually believed in him.

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

He called for 950 years,

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

how many years 950

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

we look at 60 years is a long time.

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

70 years 950 years and in that time,

00:01:20--> 00:01:30

there was people still being born so generations, generations were coming into and leaving no Holly salams time.

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

Such a long time actually for dow.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

Now obviously Allah Spanner dialer.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

He gives this struggle to the prophets

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

because the prophets can handle

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

the prophets of Allah.

00:01:51--> 00:02:01

The connection with Allah is different towns, different in the sense that they are closer to him. And because they receive inspiration and wiring, they seem to breed alleys alone,

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

a bit more signs have been shown to them.

00:02:05--> 00:02:09

The connection is usually stronger than house, but at the same time,

00:02:10--> 00:02:19

when they do a wrong thing. To us, it may seem small, very small, but to Allah, their sin is bigger than ours.

00:02:20--> 00:02:25

And their punishment is bigger than ours. And you will see today and tonight insha Allah,

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

one very small error, no highlight his cell and did.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

And we listened to a large reply to him.

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

But at this moment, 950 years of calling to the people.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

The scholars differ as I said,

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

when I mean the scholars, I meant the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as they heard it from him.

00:02:49--> 00:03:03

Some assumed that he was 80 people. And this is the majority unanimously they agree about 80 people believe they know highly his cellar in 950 years.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

But there are other opinions, some say 73.

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

Other say 100.

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

Maybe a little bit more than that, but not much more.

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

On average 8080 people.

00:03:20--> 00:03:47

Contrast that to one of us. This is a listen to us in sha Allah to be patient when we give dharma. Dharma means inviting people to Islam. Whether the opposite our means to people who are not Muslim, biting them into Islam, to Muslims, it's reminding that Kira for the kinematic Latin, meaning Allah says remind the reminder benefits the believers, whereas Tao inviting you gotta start from scratch from the beginning.

00:03:49--> 00:04:06

We have to be patient in both ways. Contrast that to people who enter and hamdulillah either repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala or they start new in the deen some people. They forget that in the many years that have passed, they were astray and that if someone came to remind them about the deen

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

they would burst at them or they will try to avoid them.

00:04:14--> 00:04:39

They forget that when they used to be called to a dance or an Islamic event or some kind of event that will remind them of a last minute dialogue. They will try their utmost ability to make excuses and avoided because they didn't want to feel the blame. They didn't want to feel guilty. They didn't want to change it because they want to enjoy what they're doing for now.

00:04:42--> 00:04:57

A person who enters into the deen or repents to Allah or likes to invite others or call his own family for example, to become better Muslims should exercise extreme patience. What is patience? Patience means you continue doing what you're doing.

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

You

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

You avoid them when they harm you.

00:05:03--> 00:05:16

you defend yourself if they attack you, that's okay. But what we mean by patients is you don't give up. And you don't use abusive words. And you try your best not to show them words, not to judge them.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

Keep it to yourself.

00:05:21--> 00:05:35

Or to say, you're going to hell fire or you're not going to be forgiven. You don't deserve to be forgiven you people will talk with disgust. This is a wrong form of dharma. You've given up already.

00:05:37--> 00:05:54

You've given up already and I've heard of people and insha Allah, I know that insha Allah and their intention is for Allah subhanaw taala but they didn't follow the method of the prophets. And this is result of ignorance. So I advise people who start in the deen or repent to Allah

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

to learn the methods of the prophets.

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

Allah says the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the following

00:06:05--> 00:06:13

coin of the belemnite shirt on the regime. smilla rahmanir rahim Cohen, having HIV

00:06:15--> 00:06:33

ilaha illa dawsey Ratan Amanita, Bonnie say to the people, this is my clear path I call to work with clear sightedness and clarity. I and whoever follows me meaning we should follow the methods of the prophets and the messengers.

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

So be patient in your call.

00:06:39--> 00:06:49

So no highlight his solemn invited at people embrace. Now here is something very important to note extremely important.

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

Who were these 80 people? What were their backgrounds? What were their positions and status in the community or in society?

00:07:00--> 00:07:03

You will find that every single one of them

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

as Allah mentions him in the Quran describes them in the Quran, by the way, not from I'm not saying from my head. Allah describes them in the Quran

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

that they were

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

people who weren't very important in the society. What do I mean by that? They weren't popular people. They weren't famous people. They weren't people who had high positions, such as the chief of a tribe, or the leader of a nation, or a doctor or PhD or, or an engineer, for example.

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

Or a famous singer

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

or a famous actor,

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

Oxfam kind of figure they were.

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

They were merely farmers.

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

Simple people, they would call them primitive people.

00:07:55--> 00:08:05

And when they heard that their religion, and when they heard the Tao of no highlight his Salaam, they did not hesitate to accept, they did not hesitate to accept, they actually accepted it very quickly.

00:08:07--> 00:08:10

And they stayed at 80 almost or whatever the number was within that.

00:08:12--> 00:08:24

So when no hallelujah Salaam began to give Dawa to the others, who were the chiefs and the big men and the big people and the hot shots and all that, and you know what happened? They replied to him,

00:08:26--> 00:08:35

we will not believe in you, you're a madman, you're a crazy man. And anyway, look at who has followed you. This is in the Quran, women aka Baraka

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

we cannot see anyone who has followed you except the

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

the most inferior

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

among us in society.

00:08:50--> 00:08:55

And you are the person who are they to us, they are inferior to us.

00:08:56--> 00:08:56

Bad the era.

00:08:58--> 00:09:06

They just take very simple words without thinking about it. No logical no logic to them, they just anything you say to them, they believe ah

00:09:08--> 00:09:20

you know, what they're trying to say is a type that believe in fairies, and fairy tales. Put a tooth under your pillow. The next one, you'll find a coin. This is what they they were trying to say this is the type of people they were like children.

00:09:22--> 00:09:41

This is how they saw them. But contrary to that opposite to that Allah saw them quite the opposite. He saw those ones inferior and these ones superior. Why? When the truth comes brothers and sisters, the truth has a description. How do you know the truth from false? The truth is clear.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

Number one, the truth is very clear. The truth is powerful. It can it takes you five minutes or less to accept the truth. Ask

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

if you know people who converted to Islam, I know many of them. Those who sincerely converted to Islam. The majority of

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

I'm gonna say every single one of them, but the majority of them that will tell you a common trend. When they first came into Islam, people told them about Islam. They heard it from here heard from there, but you know, but as soon as they read the Quran with an open mind and open heart

00:10:16--> 00:10:29

they say this to you. They say whether I embraced Islam a year later or two years later or quickly or whatever, I'll tell you one thing they say, it takes you five minutes or less to know that this is the truth

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

takes you five minutes or less to know that this is the truth.

00:10:34--> 00:10:48

And a lie that's true for those who with an open heart without any preconceived notions in media rubbish that they put into their heads and, you know, arrogance to get rid of all of that. And then read the Quran and find the Quran reads them. No one has repetitive all the time.

00:10:50--> 00:11:03

talks in different ways to you and read you tells you what yours is, it takes five minutes to No, this is the truth. That's it. But things prevent you from accepting it. But in your heart, you notice

00:11:04--> 00:11:11

I have met numerous people who converted or were Muslim always but they didn't know their Deen.

00:11:12--> 00:11:33

And with a bit of understanding of language, they read the Quran and Subhanallah in any language, they say it took me five minutes to realize this is not from Earth. The truth is clear. Brothers and sisters. That's that's the description of truth. You can tell. We can tell you now human intuition, you know, inside of us, you see someone coming talking to you look at him.

00:11:34--> 00:11:45

See something's wrong with their eyes. The way they move the way they've told you the shivering, there are people who are experts in this. And you have a doubt. I don't know if he's telling the truth or not.

00:11:46--> 00:11:57

The truth is clear. You know it when you see it when you hear it. And the Quran, and Islam is like that. So these people whom they called inferior, bad era, a primitive minded like children.

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

They were deliberately calling him that out of arrogance and proudness why these people, they didn't want the truth.

00:12:08--> 00:12:43

Because the truth will make them equal to the farmers and to all the others. When I mean farmers today farmers are important. But in those days when you said farmer, it means it's just primitive, doesn't have any education. Today, farmers are quite educated actually. Especially agriculture is very educated, but just contrast and letting you know what they were thinking. It's like saying today, this is actually about nationalism, racism, and all those other isms where people see themselves superior to someone else. Allah says in the Quran, yeah, a human in,

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

in

00:13:04--> 00:13:04

the law,

00:13:06--> 00:13:18

which means Oh people, we have created you from a single pair of male and female and made you into nations and tribes so that you may come to know one another. The most honored among you indeed are the ones who are most righteous.

00:13:19--> 00:13:25

Again, there are people who when you say to them, advising them in a brotherly way.

00:13:26--> 00:13:35

You say brother or sister you know and remember to fear of loss partner with the island. Some of them reply by saying why Why me? You fear Allah, why are you telling me what have I done?

00:13:36--> 00:13:52

Allah says in the Quran, were either either Tila Tequila Teresa when Islam, when it said to him or her fear Allah, they begin to fill up with boastfulness and proudness this is this is Gabrielle proudness This is herranz is one of the major sins chick actually.

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

We say to someone Allah, you take my Allah God, you say why what have I done la de que May Allah guide you. Sometimes they get proud of us in that sense.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

nationalities.

00:14:06--> 00:14:13

Any I know when, for example, if a Turkish Imam is speaking, knowledgeable and educated,

00:14:14--> 00:14:31

you know to say I'm an Arab, I don't listen to a took. This is proud in this way. You listen to the truth. You're not listening to the turkey, listen to the truth. Or the turkey says he is an Arab. I don't listen to Arabs, why not listen to the air and listen to the truth. If it is the truth take it's not the truth, then take it. And the story.

00:14:33--> 00:14:45

Sorry to use Turkish and Arabic because I'm an Arab, and I know a lot of Turks here. So we use that as an example and don't get offended, please anyone. I'm not talking about race or nationality here. I'm talking about nationalism and racism.

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

That it is not my choice to be born in the Arab as an Arab, it's not your choice to be born as a term, or a Pakistani or an Indian or a European or anything.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

British or American Chinese, it's not your choice. Similarly, it's not

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

Your choice to be born as a male or a female, or a rich family or poor family. You were brought in here by the choice of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So therefore Allah says, Allah, Allah Subhan Allah, Allah Jamie or the province of La Sallam said, sorry, let

00:15:14--> 00:15:20

me elaborate taco. There is no difference between an Arab and a non Arab except in piety and righteousness. Now

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

we have a second problem, okay, in righteousness. So we don't want to have people coming up and saying,

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

I'm better than you because I'm more righteous.

00:15:33--> 00:15:40

Or because I go to the masjid, I'm better than everyone else. Because I donated $100. The other day I feel on top of the world, everyone else is below me.

00:15:42--> 00:15:57

Because I think I'm on the right path. Everyone else is on the wrong path, this sectarian type of thinking, I belong to this organization, every other organization is, is wrong. And so you see, we don't you don't want to see backbiting, stabbing.

00:15:59--> 00:16:10

Even the companions of the Prophet salla send them different on certain things, but they never differed on nakida on the belief of a law, in the bed Shirky was little issues, but

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

in righteousness.

00:16:16--> 00:16:26

Husband and wife husband can say to his wife, I deserve paradise more than you. wife says, What have you done? I serve my children every day. I'm going to paradise before you.

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

God loves me more.

00:16:30--> 00:16:55

You've heard that statement. God must love me. Well, that's a wrong statement. How do you know if Allah loves us inshallah he does. Allah tells us that his name is Allah home He is the Most Merciful Yes, he loves all these creatures. But how am I so certain that it is me superior to you that Allah loves me more than you for example. And your learner's there was a time with a professor I send them a sensor. This is in Bukhari, by the way, you sitting and

00:16:57--> 00:17:16

a man who looked quite important dressed well, well groomed horse. You know, taking you back to the others. It's like today saying, you're driving the the newest BMW of the most expensive type and got the most expensive suit most expensive watch, you look important, right? Like that. This man was passing by

00:17:17--> 00:17:18

entrepreneur.

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

And he said to his companions, what do you think of a man who looks like this? of a man who looks like this? So he's not appointed this way? And they said, earlier, Rasul Allah, we think that a man like this, if he enters any home, asked for their daughter, they'll say, yes, immediately. If anyone comes to him, to help them to intercede the like connections, they'll get their way.

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

And so on.

00:17:44--> 00:17:57

Like he's an important man, everybody would would love him and work for him and do things for him, so on and so forth. Then another man came past and he was wearing raggedly. hard working, sweating. He looked like a hard working person like a laborer.

00:17:58--> 00:18:25

And they said, What do you think of a person who looks like this? They said, a lawyer, a solid person looks like this. We think he enters any house. That's for a daughter, though. shun him away. I find that hard to get married. Because they look at him and say Who is this? Anyone who comes to him to for connections to intercede with someone else? It won't work, they won't be successful. He's the last to go to Rasul salado center Sallam did not comment on the first man. But he said on the third on this in this Hadith, he said to this man, he said to them

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

How do you know?

00:18:30--> 00:18:37

And the hair that I shot the other book? This man who looks ragged and dusty, dusty because it's hard working?

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

Not that is unclean is hard working. Because that's how we survived. That's all they can do.

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

No Oksana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

If he were to ask Allah

00:18:52--> 00:19:08

and plead to Allah in His name, or swear an oath by Allah about anything, Allah subhanaw taala will respond to him immediately. I Barbara, Bill is more than just responding, allow more than just respond labarbara meaning he'll respond.

00:19:10--> 00:19:10

And

00:19:11--> 00:19:18

he will love to respond to him. You'll give him extra, they'll give him more than just responding to his dog.

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

He'll give him and more on top of it.

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

So no Muslim, this mentality

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

should not exist in the hearts and minds of any Muslim

00:19:30--> 00:19:34

because this is the practice of the people whom Allah destroyed before

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

destroyed with his natural disasters.

00:19:40--> 00:19:48

So they said to him, the primitive minded inferior people to us have followed you Why should we follow you?

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

In another verse, they were telling him as other people told their profits later on as well. Same same tune, same sound, or they're on the same melody, all of them, no matter

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

What they worship all say melon alko formula does our scholars say, this belief is all just one, they're all the same no matter what they whether the atheist or a Christian or Jew or whatever, they're on the same pathway. Once you know the truth and you're rejected, you're the same as everyone else. Why reject the truth? admit the truth, take it and go with it. If it's false, false,

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

same melody. They said to him, if you get rid of these inferior people who are primitive minded, will think of following you will think so what are these people actually asking you? They're not after the truth. They're after fame. They're after popularity thereafter status, status, the seat the position.

00:20:43--> 00:20:50

And this is hypocrisy in its absolute meaning. Well, it is part of the absolute meaning, where a person

00:20:52--> 00:21:03

wants to look like something that they are not. And they will refuse to mix with others who will make them look in the eyes of other people something else inferior.

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

This in Islam does not exist. Rasul Mohammed Salah son and for those of us who study

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

his character,

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

they say

00:21:17--> 00:21:58

if delegates from like big delegates like ambassadors from countries came to see the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam non Muslims came to see him to talk to him with a message. They could not find him amongst us. They couldn't tell who he was. He's there. They don't know which one it is. You know why? He said, Well, like they said he dressed like us looked like us. And even some of us looked even looked on the outside superior than him by the way we dressed as if we had a high position or something. But he used to sit amongst us. If he wasn't talking to us, advising us he'd be sitting amongst us like you hear. Imagine now. Mm hmm. coming in here. No one knows him just sits

00:21:58--> 00:22:25

among you. And me. I'm talking to you thinking he's come to learn something from me. Like that. But he's not. He's a bigger man than me. I also saw Sam came he was sitting among the people. They knew who he was. But if a stranger came in, they wouldn't know who he was. He was like everyone else still alive while he was in them never ever, ever saw himself bigger than anyone else ever. Even though he could have they offered him what he offered him you know the story. They said to his uncle Abu Talib

00:22:26--> 00:22:43

What does he want? Let him stop this call. You know, what's the after if he wants women? We'll give him one we'll give him all the women of Medina if he wants money, we'll make him the richest. If he wants the position will make you know King. Just tell him to stop this word. It's It's It's embarrassing us. It's humiliating us.

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

And he said to his uncle

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

in private, because uncle went to him to talk to him. And he said to him, yeah, uncle. Well, let me know what the hardships are, be there be a meanie will camara be sad? and atoka had an

00:23:00--> 00:23:15

uncle, let them understand this Wallahi by God, if they had control of the sun, and they placed it in my right hand to control the world, the universe, and they had the moon in their control and they gave it to me in my left and I controlled the universe with the sun and the moon.

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

To leave this matter, I will not leave it.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

Tell them I will not stop.

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

And what does he say? We are not after position and status.

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

There is one more before I continue this story about no holidays center. One more incident, I think is a good Listen here.

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

Have you heard of the blind man at the time the province allows him

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

this blind man is mentioned in sort of the others or whatever. And

00:23:47--> 00:24:20

what happened was Arosa Salam was inviting people. And he focused his attention to the leaders of koresh, the important man because he thought to himself, this is his intelligent guests that if he can attract the big men, then the people ended because he knew the Arab style that they follow the bigger people, right? If he attracted them, then the others will take example of these big men, they'll say, Wow, if they listen to him, he must be on the truth. So we'll follow as well. That's what he thought so the lesson, but in fact, that wasn't the case. That wasn't the case. So there was this blind men

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

who used to come.

00:24:26--> 00:24:40

And he used to hear the voice. He loved what he said. And so he had always tried to come to talk to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. But he would not get the chance one day and also someone was talking to a group of the leaders

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

and he's trying his best to keep his attention with the leaders.

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

And the blind man came along

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

and he

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

interfered

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

and cut off the profits of a lawyer send them speech. Like he cut him off

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and said,

00:25:00--> 00:25:30

Mohammed Rasul Allah. And the prophet SAW Selim turned away from him, try to avoid him. man can't see him but the process of moving away trying to talk to the people. He doesn't want any disturbance right now. The blind men, he got no response from the processor. So he walked away very upset inside. So why what have I done to add something to the messenger saucer, he went home and he was upset and his wife was trying to calm him down and make him feel good. The next day, I lost my note Allah sent down the sword

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

he found and turned away

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

about about Mohammed Salah. So now

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

as soon as the blind man came to him,

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

why am I odd?

00:25:49--> 00:25:53

How would you know? Maybe he will benefit more than the people you're talking to?

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

Oh, yeah.

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

Maybe the reminders that you give him

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

will benefit him in some way as well. And benefit others.

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

And then Allah keeps going,

00:26:08--> 00:26:20

reprimanding the prophets, Allah and telling him, you shouldn't have done that. How do you know? It's a heavy reminder to the province of Alberta and the Habiba last, but Allah is the God of truth.

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

Even if he's the Messenger of God, the truth is the truth.

00:26:25--> 00:26:30

He says, if this messenger were to make up any word, that we didn't tell him,

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

we would cut off his jugular vein and we would

00:26:37--> 00:26:53

strangle him until he can no longer breathe and he dies and none of you can prevent us from him. Severe warning to the messenger sighs I'm saying if he were to make up anything, we said, we'll cut off his air supply and make him die instantly, and no one of you can prevent us. Even the messenger sauce and the truth is the truth.

00:26:55--> 00:27:12

So when it first came down, I also saw sell them when searching for the blind man. He entered his house, knocked and he said who the Messenger of God, he entered it. And the process and Lem said I welcome you today, the best day that has ever happened to you since your mother gave birth to you.

00:27:13--> 00:27:30

Allah has sent out a verse in your matter. And ever since then, every time the prophets I send them saw the blind man, he would say to him or haven't believed the Iota, vanilla human angelic Welcome to the man whom Allah subhanaw taala gave me an admonishing reminder because of you.

00:27:32--> 00:27:41

He admitted to the last lm his fault, because the truth so these are some of the lessons we learn from how the people have not responded to him.

00:27:45--> 00:27:55

Also silvassa lamb also praises the people who accept the truth immediately, and he praises his best friend abubaker rhodiola Han, he says,

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

mete out ahead an Islamic election at Lahore. buatan arrabida.

00:28:04--> 00:28:29

So in Nicola Mia de la Sam. He said, I did not call anyone to Islam. But he had stumbled, meaning he had a bit of doubt or you thought about it, or, except for Abu Bakar will be alone. He never faltered. Lem Yatta Yatta. Latham is more than just faltered. He didn't even without a tiny pitch a tiny,

00:28:31--> 00:28:38

even a little bit. He did not hesitate whatsoever. straightaway among the men among the men.

00:28:39--> 00:29:10

And these are the olana among the women. I work with a loved one who did not even Twitch. He accepted it immediately. He said, If I told you I am the messenger of God, do you believe me? He said, I did not have a single doubt. Like that. Just came up to him suddenly, and he said, singled out an extra two that one day. He said tonight, I was taken from Makkah to aleksa to Jerusalem in one night. And I was ascended to the heavens and came back in one night.

00:29:12--> 00:29:17

takes you four or five months journey to get in one night. People called him crazy.

00:29:18--> 00:29:31

They came to Hoboken and I said, huh, now Yeah, Bubba, listen to what your friend is saying. Now we got you. he reckons he went in one night to Jerusalem came back. What did double Berkeley Allahu anhu reply. He looked at them and he said

00:29:32--> 00:29:35

in court another leaker for who assaulted

00:29:37--> 00:29:44

or sadhak if he really did say that, then he has spoken the truth. I believe he has never lied.

00:29:45--> 00:29:57

So the truth is the truth it is known from falsehood cut the bag in a rooster Amina. Hi Allah says the clear truth is clear from the false it's very clear that just have to open your heart and get rid of the arrogance and proudness

00:30:02--> 00:30:09

Now that this had happened, Allah subhanahu wa Medina sent down a verse. We're all here Illinois.

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

Allah subhanaw taala. He said to know how Allah has sent him,

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

he said and it was inspired, sent to know how to his salon.

00:30:20--> 00:30:23

And the hula. You mean I'm in kaamika in lemon, Amman.

00:30:25--> 00:30:30

No more of your people show believe in you other than those who have already believed

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

so grieved no longer at their misdeeds

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

don't feel sorry for them.

00:30:42--> 00:31:09

What does this mean? Allah told him that I'm I know, no one is going to believe anymore. That's it. Whatever has believed That's it, you know, no matter how if you try it for another 1000 years, that's it. No, well, no one else is gonna believe. And among those who disbelieved in no Holly Selim was his own son, who was set to be named the M. Yen. And another narration some scholars believe that his name was also canon, canon.

00:31:12--> 00:31:35

So now no highlight his salon gave up hope. Before anyone says anything. Why did you give up hope? He did not give up hope because he doesn't want to give down anymore? No, because Allah had told him that no one else is going to believe. That's it. That's the true means. There is no more other space that came from Allah. Since that's the case, no, Holly Solomon is wisdom and intelligence.

00:31:36--> 00:31:54

Intelligent guests, he says, well, then there's no use for all these Hippocrates hippie, these mushrikeen these idol worshipers to remain on earth? If they stay, they're going to dilute their children and their children's children, and they're gonna feel the earth with corruption, and malice and all of that stuff. So then he made his famous

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

theory in a

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

in

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

tow.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

rob

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

me No. meenie

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

miney me.

00:32:40--> 00:32:51

Which means no, hello, as salam said, Oh, my Lord, do not leave a single disbeliever on the face of the earth again, don't leave him alone.

00:32:53--> 00:32:59

If you leave them alive on the face of the earth, they will lead your servants astray.

00:33:02--> 00:33:08

And they will not give birth to anyone except arrogant, boastful disbelievers.

00:33:10--> 00:33:29

You see there are disbelievers but they're not very arrogant when they notice them they believe. But the type of people know Halley's psyllium head after 950 years. Not only did they develop this belief, this was not just normal disbelief. This was arrogant, boastful, challenging this belief of all knowing the truth.

00:33:33--> 00:34:12

Oh my Lord, he said forgive me and my family. This is what you say. Towards the end. You know, the end of every day, the end of every act, the end of your life. It's all about forgiveness. Oh my Lord forgive me. If you do work at the end of your work, make this our love Forgive me my family. You wake up from it our love Forgive me at the end of the day love Forgive me after the pray Allah for any work that you do an assignment or something. At the end of it brothers and sisters constantly asked Allah for forgiveness. Forgiveness is used in Islam. Also at the times when it's the end of things so you want to meet Allah Spinetta Allah with everything clean. So forgiveness, so no hi

00:34:12--> 00:34:23

Salaam, basically saying, oh my lord, this is the end. Since I've asked you, I know I'm a prophet, the DA of a prophet is never rejected, unless it's wrong, but obviously it's not wrong.

00:34:24--> 00:34:45

And so now he's making this stuff up, forgive me and my family, and anyone who enters my house, a believer. And this is a lesson for us to show us that the guests are extremely valuable. extremely important. You have a guest highly regarded in Islam, especially if they are believers. Anyone who entered my house a believer, forgive them

00:34:46--> 00:34:55

and will and forgive the believers men and women. Another lesson he has a prophet Mohammed Salah Sallam told us any movement he makes do I

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

ask God for help for things for

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

Any other believers, men and men or women, then for every single believer on the face of the earth, like if you say, Oh ALLAH forgive the believers, men and women,

00:35:09--> 00:35:31

then for every believer on the face of the earth, Allah gives you a reward on their behalf. And an angel stands behind you, and says, Oh Allah, and give this person the same as what he's asking for them. So you get the angels making dot for you while you make dot for others. Isn't that amazing? So this is not Holly's salon, and our compassion towards one another.

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

What does it really mean

00:35:35--> 00:35:40

to her and do not increase the criminals and the oppressors anything but more grief.

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

So now, the famous Ark was being ordered to be built. Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

and it was revealed to north and a seller

00:35:53--> 00:36:03

that normal will believe except those who miss disbelieved. Those who have believed. Then he said to him, was not helpful cabbie. ioannina joaquina

00:36:05--> 00:36:12

wala to heart ebene Villa de novo llamo in moroccon. Very well, yeah, no, hi responded,

00:36:13--> 00:36:51

I order you to go and construct an ark under my under our eyes, and as our revelation and address me no further, on behalf of those who have been unjust, they shall be drowned in the flood. That's it. It means you've said your there's no turning back, I'm going to go for it. construct your Ark, under our eyes meaning under our protection under our guidance under our safety, meaning, our is the Royal with us a low and our revelation meaning I'm going to send you believe Allah sent him to you, and he's going to teach you how you're going to build the UK.

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

gonna teach you how to do it, and what you're gonna have to do, what are the signs when you have to get on to it, and how you should sail?

00:37:04--> 00:37:19

Allah says and know how to sell em cold or cold to us. And how excellent were we to answer the prayer meaning Allah responded fully to the full meaning of his door. And we rescued him and his family from the grevious distress.

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

Allah.

00:37:23--> 00:37:28

Oh, no, Holly seven asked Allah subhanaw taala to save him and his family and the believers.

00:37:29--> 00:37:34

Allah promised him that he will save him and his family and the believers.

00:37:36--> 00:37:49

But he said, except those who disbelieved. He made that condition I will rescue you and your family and the believers believed with you except those who disbelieved.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

So what happened?

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

Let's come back to that inshallah. But let's see how the building of the ark happened.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

Allah ordered no halia salaam to go up to a mountain.

00:38:03--> 00:38:07

Strange to a mountain to build the big ship.

00:38:08--> 00:38:14

You don't build a ship on the up in the mountain where there's no water, normally build it close to the coast right?

00:38:15--> 00:38:18

Here, Allah says to not go and build it in the mountain.

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

Watch what happens as a result of that. And obviously, there's a wisdom behind that you'll find out soon shall

00:38:25--> 00:38:32

the disbelievers a lot describes how they started to mock him and make fun of him in the following way. Allah says,

00:38:33--> 00:38:38

work with lemon law in a min min call me.

00:38:40--> 00:38:54

Every time a group of people from his people came past by him and they saw him building this accepted woman. They started to tease him mock and make fun of him. In one narration, it says this is how it said they used to pass by him and say, Yeah, no.

00:38:55--> 00:38:58

It's some of the mockery. Yeah, I know.

00:38:59--> 00:39:30

Certain adjara data and content idea. What No, now you're, you're a carpenter. And before you were a prophet, make up your mind for crying out loud. You're a prophet. Now you're a carpenter. We told you is crazy. That's what they used to say. We told you is crazy. And how does the professor said I'm also sorry that the people had a tradition. Every time they had a child that was born, that child grew up with the understanding, or the teaching that this man know and his surname is a crazy man. Don't follow him.

00:39:32--> 00:39:37

How should you learn how you know Hi, Sam is not like that. But just to give you an example, you know, back in.

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

When I visited Lebanon,

00:39:42--> 00:39:47

in the 90s, with, you know, up in the village, there used to be this really old man who was crazy.

00:39:48--> 00:40:00

And he's really had lost his mind. And everyone would say to the kids, you know, kids used to saying, hey, Denton can pass that man over there. If you get passed to throw something at you or you'll see him urinating in public or something.

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

Don't go past the

00:40:02--> 00:40:13

crate. So don't like that. And this is the same way there's disbelievers there's a far have no Holly center. People have no history tell the children that children's talk like that. He's a crazy man.

00:40:16--> 00:40:25

And this is a prophet of God, what's left for us, the patient was better Allah. Allah is to say the problem homosassa limb, you shall hear from the people of the book.

00:40:26--> 00:40:30

And from those who disbelieve many hurtful words,

00:40:32--> 00:40:37

be patient with the harm that they afflict you with and rely on us.

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

Now

00:40:41--> 00:40:50

it is said in one narration now I'm not sure if this is correct or not, but it did come in the books of the seat, I'll say it to you inshallah, that

00:40:52--> 00:40:55

the people is to go into the ark of no hobbies and when he's not watching,

00:40:56--> 00:41:00

and they used it as a toilet, just to go there and defecate

00:41:01--> 00:41:14

in the UK. There's so much deification feces that it was unbearable. So they say that one day alone made a disease in the skin of these people. And I didn't know how to cure it.

00:41:16--> 00:41:21

So one day, one man was in the ark doing what he was doing his deed. And he slipped,

00:41:22--> 00:41:28

it slipped and fell on his feces. Few days later, the spots went off his skin.

00:41:29--> 00:42:08

So they said the people started going to Noah's Ark until they cleaned it all of the feces and they wiped it on themselves so they can get cured. Now this is some of the narrations that come to us. They are underrated by ourselves, well, no alum of the authenticity. But the point of that is that his people mocked him in the most ugliest and disgusting ways. That's the idea. And this is true. No Holly Sam reply to them at this stage. Now there's no more there's nothing between him and them. So now he's using the harsh language. He said this is allowed when there is no more. That's it enemy between you and nevertheless, enmity and it's clear and everything you reply in strong ways in

00:42:08--> 00:42:18

firmwares not abusive firm, Karla interest her woman NASA in Nana's Herman, come come at us. Hello. If you're mocking us, we will soon mock you the same way you are mocking us.

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

And you will find out soon, who is truly going to be tortured. This is how Muslim uses their firm words, you can realize No, there's no ugly words, no abusive words, but they're firm and they deadly. But they're not abusive or disrespectful to any the person's

00:42:39--> 00:42:45

features or description. It's just what their actions is telling them the facts is what's going to happen.

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

So

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

Allah said to him,

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

he said,

00:42:55--> 00:42:58

build the ark on our eye and without revelation.

00:42:59--> 00:43:14

So Java is so lame is to tell him how to prepare the wood. He tell him to carve the wood and make it curved, so that he can sail easily and he can float. And he told him to use nails and wood.

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

Allah says in the Quran

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

so and so we carried him

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

on planks of wood

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

and nails of steel,

00:43:28--> 00:43:32

or nails of steel nails or low Anima kind of middle they were

00:43:33--> 00:43:56

but it was made beautifully. Now the competitors props are selling well, unanimously they agree the majority of them agree that the arc was huge. Some of them say it was 80 yards long. Some of them say 101 extreme duration says 1000 yards, but minimum 80 yards long.

00:43:58--> 00:44:05

And they agree that it was at least 30 yards high. It was made of three stories.

00:44:07--> 00:44:19

The first story was 10 yards high second 10 yards and the third 10 yards high. So big, very big ship. Huge. So it's like saying what like some like close to two kilometers long

00:44:20--> 00:44:25

or more even, or a little bit less higher than a very high building.

00:44:26--> 00:44:30

You know, like those skyscrapers we have in the city very hot, very tall, very big.

00:44:32--> 00:44:41

And it took him a long time to build this Ark. up on the mountain they go look at him. He's building an ark on a mountain people build up near the shore. We told you he's crazy.

00:44:43--> 00:44:47

Then Allah told him for either a third or the North.

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

When literally the Normans oven.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

In those days the normal made out of bricks and they were hollow deep under the in the ground or just above the ground. They used it to heat up bread and butter.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

So no water came into the weekend obviously can't have fire. So Allah says for the third the note when the oven floods

00:45:09--> 00:45:15

we said to him, carry on board your Ark, from every creature,

00:45:16--> 00:45:42

a pair, just to male and female. This is in the Quran in the Bible and it says something different. In the Bible it says, carry 70 pairs of domestic animals and in a pair of every other animal. This contradicts the core answer we rejected. As the Quran says a pair only of each creature, every creature, every single animal and creature was boarded onto that ship appear.

00:45:45--> 00:45:52

In a second, though, in the first story, in the second story, they say it was the humans and in the third story were for the birds to land and stay there.

00:45:54--> 00:46:01

Why the oven because it's meant to be for fine. What happened was Allah says for fatahna abueva sinner

00:46:03--> 00:46:10

be met in Mohammed law says it's a little calmer. And so we opened up the doors of the of the heavens.

00:46:12--> 00:46:36

metaphorical words the doors of the heavens with gushing water when hammer is like spilling a bucket. It wasn't just rain. It was like the water they spilled from a bucket. It wasn't dropped. It was all at once. Well if a journal Luna the power of Allah and we burst exploded with these terms use exploded bursts burst the Earth's

00:46:37--> 00:47:03

the earth and made holes from every part from mountains from valleys from everywhere, into billions of gushing fountains and waters in a like a dam you know then the hose water like exploding a dam and watch how the water comes through like that. Like that it came out. Fell takelma Allah unwrinkled codere the water of the sky and the water of the earth met together

00:47:04--> 00:47:44

on a divine command in the Hadith narration says that the ark was covered from the top and from the bottom. So the water didn't fill the boat the the the ship the ark, as the water started to come brothers and sisters in a matter of Yani just only a few moments of the day. He had warned them of the flood and they used to say to him Yeah, bring it on. Come on. Where is this flood? Where is this? Where is this gonna bring it on? Where is it in 950 years you're lying You're crazy. Like what today was the day of judgment it's impossible. What are you talking about when you die? You tend to do was decide that Come on, bring it Okay, why isn't it alright? I swear to God now. Okay, where's

00:47:44--> 00:48:09

the thunder lightning But what happened? Nothing happened to me. Love I gotta wonder I'm gonna bring you someone here converted to Islam. He's got a remarkable story about how his gang abused him for becoming a Muslim. And he said to them, God gave you your wealth and they laughed at him mockingly that night. He goes we're lucky that the following week something happens that man, I'll let him tell the story one day insha Allah and Allah made him lose all of his wealth. True story here in Melbourne.

00:48:10--> 00:48:13

Part of a real gang. Bring him here in shallow one day.

00:48:14--> 00:48:20

But the point is Allah Spanner died that tells him just wait, what why are you Why are you rushing is going to come? I'm just giving you time.

00:48:23--> 00:48:35

Among the people who disbelieved was his son, yen, as we said, Now he came to the ship in the UK to watch it. He said that no, holla he said and the majority of them say that no alayhis salaam. He had four sons.

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

Yen

00:48:41--> 00:48:44

and also, Sam ham and the

yen. disbelieved. Sam Hammond the fifth believed the majority say that they did they weren't on the ark with him. And no Holly Sam had a wife beforehand was the mother of young she died before the flood and he had another wife who climbed the weather was the mother of San ham and the Africa climbed aboard and those little bits number of people that believed with him. No, Holly Sam looked at his son. Okay.

00:49:15--> 00:49:16

And he said to him

00:49:20--> 00:49:20

he said to him,

00:49:24--> 00:49:25

color

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

una yo Come on

00:49:32--> 00:49:34

mean, he said Oh, my son

00:49:36--> 00:49:49

Come Come aboard with us and don't be among the people who disbelieved. What did his son reply and arrogance he said, Call me Elijah belly. Simoni manana.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

He said that I'm going to go to a high mountain and we'll save me from the water. What did not I said? I'm reply. God

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

Allah seemingly a woman in

00:50:03--> 00:50:03

in

00:50:05--> 00:50:12

he said today there is no protection from the law of Allah. Except to he has given mercy to

00:50:13--> 00:50:18

as they were having the conversation Allah says right there and then because it was quick, or

00:50:20--> 00:50:21

no jofa can

00:50:24--> 00:50:30

suddenly the waves intercepted between them both and took his son away. And he was among the ones who drowned.

00:50:32--> 00:50:44

Immediately, no Holly said and turned, and he said, Robin at any any, oh my lord, my son is part of my family. We're in our house. And your promise is true.

00:50:45--> 00:50:52

When the camel came in, and you are the most wise, Allah replied immediately to him and said to him, God, I know how

00:50:55--> 00:51:18

you said, I know he's not one of your family. Why? In earlier verse, Allah said to him, I will save your family except the ones who disbelieved. So the family that I was talking about were the ones that believed but the family of yours are disbelieved. I'm not going to save them, you know, part of it. Now, it's not something to do between you and your son. This is a matter between your son and me. This is my right.

00:51:19--> 00:52:03

And I will reward if I see fit, and I will punish if I see fit the matter I gave to your son. If he wronged you different story, he wronged me. Don't get involved. And I told you before as the disbelievers I'll save your family except for the disbelievers among them, fella this elderly man he said like I be here Island. Don't Don't dare to ask me something that you have no knowledge of. In the eyes Luca and cuckoo and me ninja Haney. I warn you, I admonish you I advise you not to be among the ignorant show. This is what we're talking about. The prophets. Yes, they are rewarded more their patient more, but also the admonishment from our last panel Darla is more

00:52:04--> 00:52:26

humble Allah has given us mercy actually. brothers sisters, like some people that say we're not prophets, so we can't be like them. You know, they're prophets, but Allah has made them humans like us. Really? Don't. Don't ever say that Allah has given each one. The giucose No, Holly Salaam, what did he do? Now? This is where I'm going to end this most important part. No, Holly SLM did not hesitate.

00:52:27--> 00:52:31

Immediately prostrated to Allah subhanaw taala and asked the Lord to forgive him.

00:52:33--> 00:52:44

Our love forgiving he said, and this is the last lesson I want to say about this. Brothers and sisters. The sin a moment cannot bear staying with a sin for a long time.

00:52:45--> 00:53:01

As soon as you hit the sin, repent immediately don't say tomorrow on Monday, in a few years time when Allah guides me What does that mean when Allah guides me I'll pray Allah has already guided you. You miskeen You poor person you It's you who is not choosing to do so.

00:53:03--> 00:53:13

So immediately repent now before tomorrow because Allah says When did enough some taxi bovada

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

darina

00:53:18--> 00:53:18

00:53:35--> 00:53:45
