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

Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillah

00:00:24--> 00:00:29

wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While earlier he was so happy he married

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

my brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

Tonight, we continue with the stories of the prophets.

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

And we derive the lessons that we can learn from them. As a last panel tile, I brought them to us in the Quran for a very valuable reason.

00:00:52--> 00:01:14

And if it wasn't that the stories of the profits were so valuable to us, had many lessons for us, will assist us in knowing how to live our lives as Muslims, if they weren't beneficial for us in this world and the Hereafter, Allah would have not spoken about so many prophets and their stories in their people in the Quran.

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

And for anyone who looks into the Quran, you will find that a very large portion of it

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

almost 70% of the Quran

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

is attributed to the prophets and the stories of their people.

00:01:34--> 00:01:56

And the lessons that derive from it based on that and today inshallah, we are going to speak of two prophets, who came immediately after one another after the time of no alayhis salaam. And these prophets, they spoke the Arabic language, their names were, who would install it, who would install it.

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

The tribes that they came to who were also there people for who would

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

their names wired.

00:02:05--> 00:02:16

And for solely the names with a mood that were related. They were related, and they were both Arabic speaking tribes.

00:02:17--> 00:02:26

They situated somewhere that was situated somewhere near the Jordanian area. And in fact, the mood still has till today artifacts that are inside of Jordan,

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

in that region.

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

So we begin with who would alayhis salam

00:02:35--> 00:02:40

who Allah is Salaam, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned him in various verses in the Quran.

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

mentions that Hoda alayhis salaam was the brother of

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

Allah says, we're in the home.

00:03:01--> 00:03:13

And two is add. The people have had we sent them their brother, hood. The reason why I lost his brother here is because who the alayhis salaam came from their tribe.

00:03:14--> 00:03:59

And therefore Allah is attributing the word to them by saying brother, call the new brother, meaning is so close to them. So related to them, that they cannot say that their prophet hood was a stranger to them. They cannot say we don't know this man. Well, every prophet that Allah Subhana Allah sent, he let the people know who they are. And they grew up with them. So they learned his honesty, integrity, sincerity, truthfulness, character and so on. So when he started to give them the message, any profit, the people had no excuse had no proper reason

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

to not believe in this messenger

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

or to deny him.

00:04:07--> 00:04:14

So Allah is fair. And I had who it was the brother of I had so close to them, and he grew up among them.

00:04:16--> 00:04:24

Just like no highlight his salon medalla his salon also taught the people about worshiping one God.

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

I had,

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

they went back to the worship of idols,

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

and then started worshipping statues.

00:04:34--> 00:04:55

You see, a Lost Planet. Allah talks about these types of people who constantly go back to earning creating other gods spreading injustice on Earth, changing the teachings of the prophets and the messengers. And the law uses in one of the verses in the Quran, one of the sutras in the Quran sort of there yet,

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

a word a rhetorical question.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

rhetorical question, a question that is so deep in meaning yet at the same time, it's a question of almost sarcasm to the people, as though Do they not understand the law says, at all, so be these teachings they teach, what is it to them isn't like every time some of them die, they, their children just inherit their belief off them as well. So be it just inherited his religion and inheritance that is left behind by their forefathers that they should take it like property or like property or some kind of wealth a person and father has left behind or another.

00:05:41--> 00:05:48

Religion is not something of inheritance. Therefore, it does not belong to a particular people.

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

The Jews

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

in general,

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

they have this idea, which they fabricated,

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

was not originally in the Torah was not originally a teaching of musala his salon, they fabricated a false teaching

00:06:09--> 00:06:29

of racism, pure racism, pure racial discrimination, when they brought in belief into it, and they said, no one can become a Jew, unless you are born in from a Jewish family. They differ a little bit on the type of parents you have. There are sects among them, they differ.

00:06:30--> 00:06:37

But they agree that Judaism is something that you are born with, from a bloodline.

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

And that's why you will find today,

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

millions of Jews, some of them

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

believe

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

that, sorry, some of them, they call themselves Jews. But they don't believe in anything of Judaism, nothing.

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

In fact, some of them are atheists, they don't believe in God at all.

00:07:06--> 00:07:09

And don't be surprised if you see in demonstrations

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

in the city, or you hear about them on the news. And among these demonstrations, even against

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

the Israeli government, among them people who say they're Jews.

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

A large number of them,

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

you may find them with people called socialists, that don't believe in God.

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

And they're against the Israeli government, but they will call themselves Jews.

00:07:40--> 00:07:45

Because this idea that you were born from parents of a particular belief,

00:07:47--> 00:08:07

makes you have that belief is false. It's untrue. It's unheard of. And the prophets never taught this. The Torah, and the Injeel and the Quran, and exams as a board. All these four revelations never mentioned that religion is to be inherited.

00:08:10--> 00:08:22

Because they all mentioned prophets of different races, nationalities, different nationalities, different people. So the Torah does not only mentioned profits, coming to the children of Israel, it mentions other prophets.

00:08:24--> 00:08:33

And ngl mentions that the prophets and the Quran mentions that the prophets no Prophet came to say you are to follow the exact religion of your forefathers.

00:08:37--> 00:08:44

Allah says in the Quran, when the people of courageous to come to the prophet SAW Selim, and say to him,

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

we will not follow what you have

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

been attacked by Rama giardina.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

We're in

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

Morocco.

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

This is the common model.

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

We will rather follow what we found our forefathers with

00:09:12--> 00:09:19

and we insist on following their footsteps, their trails, what they left behind. A law replies back to them.

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

In other verses, a common saying a common reply from Allah is this.

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

Oh,

00:09:35--> 00:09:52

behold, their forefathers. They understood nothing. And they weren't guided meaning those who worship idols, Allah is saying they understood nothing of what their prophets taught. They were ERD themselves and now you are heard as well and your children will be heard as well and so on.

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

So Islam does not teach this blind following.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

There's no such thing

00:10:01--> 00:10:07

Because you are born from a particular particular belief, you have that belief, religion cannot be forced down someone's throat.

00:10:08--> 00:10:15

And those who say that Islam forces people, people, pushes people into Islam. This is what they

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

try to spread about Islam and Muslims.

00:10:22--> 00:10:59

There is no compulsion in religion brothers and sisters, as Allah says in the Quran, let eco happy Deen. In fact, the word ikura doesn't just mean no compulsion. It means even deeper than that. No coercion. Like you can't even pressure someone into entering into Islam by words or manipulation, or blackmailing not just by the foot by physical force, but also even by black men and manipulating Islam is clear. Allah says, completing the verse, Debian or rush domina lay the right from the wrong, the truth from the false is clear, clear.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

So the people have had coming back to them now.

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

They followed their forefathers footsteps.

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

And I'd like to make a very important statement as the scholars agree upon.

00:11:15--> 00:11:29

Brothers and sisters in Islam, it is always easier to unite on falsehood on fabricated things than to unite on something which is the truth. Why? Because people have desires.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

They have racial desires,

00:11:34--> 00:11:56

arrogance, jealousy, selfishness, love of money, love of fame, and so on and so forth. Because of these, which allies testing us with, it is difficult for people to unite on truth. But this is the test. The people of truth are the winners. The people are sort of the losers,

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

because they are following this and themselves their own desires.

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

Therefore, at least when he rejected to bow down to Adam,

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

it was because of this same reason. He will not unite on net truth from God.

00:12:14--> 00:12:17

Because of his arrogance and proudness.

00:12:19--> 00:12:26

I had, we're not only followers of the footsteps of their forefathers, there will also

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

extremely advanced in technology.

00:12:33--> 00:12:40

They were advanced in technology that I lost my dad at bears witness in the Quran about how advanced in technology they were.

00:12:41--> 00:13:06

In other words, Allah describes to us that they had power. The type of power they had was a different one to muscles, and weapons. It was the power of invention, the power of innovation and creativity in the world, the power of knowledge of how the world works. What they used to do was the following Allah says in the Quran in certain federal,

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

what Allah subhana wa Eilat says

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

boom can be.

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

Iran,

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

Latina mula, corny No, have you been?

00:13:27--> 00:13:42

Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the people of IOD of the city of Iran? Your army was the city it's the name of it with lofty pillars, high towers, the like of which was never created in any land.

00:13:45--> 00:14:07

No one had beaten them to this advanced technology. When you talk about pillars high in the sky, we're talking about them building these pillars in the most awkward situate places, valleys, hills, mountains rock solid and smooth soft and Long Beach long water anyway, hi pillars that carried high towers in the sky.

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

They were the first in this type of engineering.

00:14:12--> 00:14:24

And because of that, what is alleged mention it because of that, they had this sense of arrogance, that because of this invention, that they have an advanced technology.

00:14:25--> 00:14:31

They ruled the world. They thought this is what they had learned that they are the rulers they are superior to everyone else.

00:14:33--> 00:14:37

In today's world, we have a similar system of ideologies

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

that would that try to manipulate our minds and our children's minds on television.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

That

00:14:46--> 00:14:56

the superpowers of the world the countries have superpower what why they superpowers what makes them a superpower. When you look deeply into what what is it it's money

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

and weaponry.

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

Technology,

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

money weaponry and technology makes you a superpower. And to me,

00:15:09--> 00:15:26

this makes you what I understand this to be. It has nothing to do with morality. It has nothing to do with intelligence, really, it has nothing to do with knowing your purpose in life. All we have seen from this is atrocities, terror, killing, bombing,

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

manipulating,

00:15:30--> 00:15:45

splitting people into two classes, the upper and the lower. And it is a support of what we call today, capitalism. Capitalism. The strong consumer, the weak, the weak, has no has no options in this world has no opportunity.

00:15:47--> 00:15:56

I'm not talking about those outside in Australia, you won't understand it here. We're talking about the majority of the poor countries in the world that are consumed by the so called superpowers.

00:15:57--> 00:16:04

I'm not going to go into the atrocities of those so called superpowers of what they have done over the hundreds of years.

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

And especially since World War One till today,

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

brothers and sisters I

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

was like that.

00:16:18--> 00:16:27

And because of this feeling of superiority, because they built high lofty pillars. These people had no intelligence, they had no moral well being.

00:16:28--> 00:16:46

Compare that to the prophets and messengers of Allah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was offered everything the Mexican leaders came to prophesize and offered him everything. They said to him, if you want women will give you a women, if you want to be our king, we'll give you a king, if it's wealth that you will make you the richest,

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

just leave what you're calling to.

00:16:50--> 00:16:59

And he said to his uncle, say to them, say to them, if they were to place the moon in my right and the sun in my left, or vice versa, I will never leave this cold.

00:17:01--> 00:17:16

superiority is not in what you have of this world. superiority is not that you can make better mathematical mathematical calculations than others. superiority is not that you can create or invent nuclear warfare that can wipe out countries and people.

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

That is not superiority, that you can be richer than others, and where

00:17:23--> 00:17:41

more expensive suits or have more expensive watches, or drive more expensive cars, or live in lofty houses. This is not superiority at all, by any degree. And anyone who believes that we're lucky, is stricken with so much lack of intelligence. They are the most stupid people on the face of the earth.

00:17:42--> 00:17:44

stupidity and all of its meaning.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

selfishness, greed, that's all it does.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

So Allah did not mention the people have had in this way unless there was a great lesson to be learned. And we live in it till today.

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

10s of 1000s of years later,

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

this still exists.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

And the last panel a dialer

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

mentions about the people have had

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

in that

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

they raised the hood among them.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

And they knew him of being wise. When he came to them with the prophethood. Later on in his years. The first thing they did was they rejected him and they rejected his warnings.

00:18:32--> 00:18:44

Why did they reject Him and reject his warnings, number one that was stricken with this disease of superiority. If they had followed him, it meant for them that they are now going to be equal to everyone else.

00:18:45--> 00:19:01

To me, this story of add, even though the name is not said, the description of what kind of ideology they followed is not mentioned because didn't exist that time. But today it exists. It's the word capitalism, they were capitalists.

00:19:02--> 00:19:17

And these people, they had this idea of superiority and inferiority, Islam or the religion of Allah subhanaw taala submission to God, which I which who alayhis salam came to them with meant that they have to now be equal to anyone else.

00:19:18--> 00:19:26

And that your only superiority is in your following of God's laws and your moral well being. Your justice, your equality,

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

not your

00:19:30--> 00:19:36

not your discrimination. They couldn't accept that. So they use their forefathers as an excuse.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

This is our forefathers, this is who we are. And this is exactly in World War One. What Europe did to the Muslim world, we left the law. So the Europe came in and divided us into a different type of identity altogether. Brothers and sisters, it's very important for us to always remember not forget, because till today, this is the case. This is the plan.

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

was the plot, it has never stopped. This still going with their law that they plan have a hunt that they planned for this hunt hunt more than 100 years before that,

00:20:10--> 00:20:39

to break the sea level, the last pillar for the last leadership of Islam was the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire is not something Turkish, the Ottoman Empire was something Islamic Islam is different to nationalism ism. And then they separated us brothers and sisters, and they caused us to fight and to blame one another. Yes, there were members among the Muslim who were betrayed will be traitors, but we don't consider them as part of Islamic identity. Because the Europe came in, and they made them

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

think of their nationalistic identity.

00:20:44--> 00:21:00

They said to the Arabs, I could you let the Turks overrule you? You are the Arabs, the Quran came down in Arabic, where's your pride. And so the ones weakened a man far away from Allah subhanaw taala began to oppose them. And then they have different promises to different leaders of the Muslims and so on. And so we already divided.

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

When they came in, they made sure that we stayed divided brothers and sisters World War One, they don't teach you about it in school that well.

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

World War One was about the destruction of the Islamic world, whether you like it or not.

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

It was the destruction of the Ottoman Empire.

00:21:22--> 00:21:31

And this empire was destroyed by them with a plan and a plot. They divided us into little countries, little nations,

00:21:32--> 00:22:02

every sheep on its own, every sheep on its own, this is exactly opposite to the teaching of prophets, Allah sent them when he said stick together, don't this unite, for the shape that is away from the flock is most prone to be attacked by the wolf and consumed, this is what happened to us. And then they made us be proud of our flags. They made us be proud of our flags, and we gave our flags a particular feature. And we named ourselves names, and we stuck together in race, not in Islam in nationality.

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

So you see it, over the years, when one country is hit, the neighboring Muslim country doesn't care.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

Because not in the name of Islam.

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

The neighboring Muslim country doesn't care at all.

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

But when their own country is hit, or people representing that country or hit

00:22:27--> 00:22:36

carrying the citizenship of that country, then the country stands again, for the wrong reason to because of nationalism.

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

We need to break that

00:22:43--> 00:22:59

we need to break that in our homes, we need to teach our children to break that among each other as a Muslim community wherever we are, whether we are in Australia, whether we are in Egypt, in Lebanon, Palestine, in America, wherever you may be, we must break this nationalistic idea in our heads

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

and not see different colors.

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

So I did not want this.

00:23:09--> 00:23:18

And they rejected who would alehissalaam he showed them signs showed them miracles. But they refused.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

After many years of warning them

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

they said finally

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

they said to him finally

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

Oh hood,

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

we will follow you.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

But there's one condition upon you.

00:23:38--> 00:24:03

You do not equate us with the inferior ones, the farmers, the the peasants, the those types of people, their backward people, their primitive people, you cannot equate us with them. Who de la Sallam obviously rejected this, just like no Holly salon rejected it. Same model. So in the end, they said to him, if you don't leave us, we are going to hurt you. We're going to torture you. We're going to destroy you.

00:24:04--> 00:24:19

So then who would ask our last panel data to give him victory said oh my lord, they rejected me. They refused me for decades of yours. Finally, the last panel dial is sent down the verse in the Quran that he is going to torture them with

00:24:21--> 00:24:30

raging winds of some sort tornadoes and raging winds. So he said that to them, he won them. He told them

00:24:31--> 00:24:42

but they said You are a liar. Bring this punishment towards us if you are truthful. Where is this? Look at us. They had their proud pride in their buildings and in their fortresses,

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

their buildings and their fortresses.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

So they used to say

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

dinarobin Mehta iduna income terminal saw the thing. If you are truthful. bring to us what you're warning us about

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Come on. So last isn't an

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

get there but I

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

think a again, maybe

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

in

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

sending

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

me

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

some songs, Filomena

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

fat gain effect can then be

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

on employed as

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

any

00:25:48--> 00:26:34

ad rejected warnings then see how was My punishment and My Warnings, we sent upon them a raging wind on an ill fated day of constant calamity, plucking up people, as if they were uprooted trunks of palm trees. See how was My punishment? And how true my warnings were? And we have indeed made this clear and easy to understand. Then Is there any who will receive admonition, the way it is described in the Quran is horrendous. Like the way they were, the the punishment came to them. Allah says they were plucked out of the ground, as if they were what uprooted chunks of palm trees, the winds came.

00:26:35--> 00:27:15

And another area in the Qur'an that people have had looked above them one day, and who the alayhis salam had left, he had left with the command of a Lost Planet, Allah because Allah told him, I am now going to punish these people leave you and your family and those were believed with you. So they left and they deserted the land. Then Allah subhanaw taala sent to them clouds. What happened to add was, they were in need of water. They needed water, and they saw clouds coming to them. And they said, Oh, look, he come the clouds a blessing. We are going to receive water now. And then they're going to pass away. But I lost my dad. I said, No, no, no. This was a punishment. These were clouds

00:27:15--> 00:27:38

carrying punishment we're coming to punish you with. And so the winds began brothers and sisters, the tornadoes, Allahu Akbar, nothing can prevent that even today. Of all the weapons of the world, nothing can prevent a one minute and a half tornado, which will wipe out cities in an instant. Like that.

00:27:40--> 00:27:47

Allah says, The winds actually lifted the people off the ground, it made them fly in the air.

00:27:49--> 00:27:54

So it sucked the people off the ground from within their homes from the ground from wherever they were hiding.

00:27:55--> 00:27:58

Like a vacuum. Allah is able to do that do that.

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

Climate can do all of this suck the people of the ground, it can suck oceans, brothers and sisters. It can cause tsunamis. Set the people out as Allah says, as if they were uprooted the palm trees to the ground, lifted them up in the air, toss them around, and they fell

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

on their faces. So they were crushed, lifted up and crushed.

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

Like falling off a 20 story building.

00:28:33--> 00:28:46

All of the city of add was destroyed. Its people and it's towns and cities. You actually cannot find any more pillars of the people of add lift. And some research says

00:28:47--> 00:28:51

of some of the scholars of today and even non Muslim scholars.

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

They say

00:28:54--> 00:29:07

that this land became no more like as you can't even find an existence of it. People don't know whether I had people exactly what there's no ruins left no buildings of them left at all.

00:29:08--> 00:29:12

Just sand and desert, sand dunes and desert.

00:29:14--> 00:29:23

So Allah, Allah says, Can you find any more remnants of them? In another verse, you cannot find any more remnants of them at all.

00:29:25--> 00:29:32

completely wiped out because of their arrogance, their rejection, their injustice in their oppression.

00:29:39--> 00:29:43

This was hired the people of hood when Alex Selim returned.

00:29:45--> 00:29:50

He saw the people in the way that they were before Allah subhanaw taala wipe them away.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

Allah says and when our command came, we rescued hood and those who believes with him

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

Through our mercy, and save them from a severe chastisement and such where the people have had they denied the revelation of the Lord and disobeyed His Messenger and follow the biting, or the bidding of every incident tyrant. They were pursued by a curse in this life, and upon the Day of Resurrection. Behold, I had disbelieved. Behold, I had disbelieved in the Lord, so away with the people of wood.

00:30:31--> 00:30:49

Allah says, Then, when I saw it as a dense cloud coming towards their valleys, they said, this is a cloud that shall give us rain. No, this is the this is that you were asking to be hastened. A wind we're in is a painful torment, sort of 46 verse 24.

00:30:51--> 00:31:07

When who Allah is Salam returned and saw them this way, he said the following words want to lock him while I can lead to hip bone and nalsa hain. I advised you also, but you people do not like the ones who advise you.

00:31:13--> 00:31:19

Or asuma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be afraid whenever wind blew.

00:31:20--> 00:31:27

Whenever he saw clouds gathering or wind blowing in Medina or in Mecca, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to be afraid

00:31:28--> 00:32:12

until it rained. Then he would come down is Chateau de la Juana narrates, she says whenever when the blue the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh Allah, I asked you it's good, and goodness which it carried, and the goodness with which it is sent. And I seek refuge in You from its evil, and the evil which is carried an evil with which it is sent. She says further, whenever the sky was covered, his face would change. He would enter and go out of his house, he would enter and go out so come in and out in and out like a paranoid person. And he would pace up and down. If it rained, he would become happy. I shadow the lohana asked him once about this. And he said it could be what I'd have

00:32:12--> 00:32:52

faced. Then when they saw it as a dense cloud, he recited the verse. And when they saw it as a dense cloud coming towards their valleys, they said, this is a cloud that shall give us rain when it didn't get in given them rain, but a punishment. This is why the professor said let me see. I shadow the alarm on her. Ask the province on the line it was said she said the other soul Allah, Allah will send the punishment and we will all be destroyed and only cofina sila Hoon, will a lot of punish people and among them are among us. There are those who are righteous as well. So there could be believers among the righteous ones a lot will destroy them. Is that possible? Allah, the Prophet

00:32:52--> 00:33:05

salla, Selim replied, either Catherine pheasant, Yes, hi Aisha. He would if corruption exceeds too much, because the people in that land, the Muslims and the believers have a duty.

00:33:06--> 00:33:23

They have a duty to change things if they can to want to guide to not just to sit alone in their homes and say, belief or religion is only inside my bedroom. Islam is the only religion that doesn't do that. If they cannot, then they should escape the corruption.

00:33:24--> 00:33:40

And this is why the prophets I send them never even himself knew. So he would be afraid when winds came. And when it rained he would say hamdulillah I showed him on Easter our school we get destroyed even among us there are believers he said yes, if corruption exceeds. There's a great wisdom in something like that.

00:33:41--> 00:33:50

When people are unable to practice their Deen Muslims unable to practice their Deen in that land, they must migrate and go to a land where they can.

00:33:54--> 00:33:58

The next prophet that came after them, brothers and sisters, was the name of silence.

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

The people that came after it went back to the worship of one God, because they were believers. But they died out and they had children and the shaitan came again. And he gave them ideas and the desires began to play again the temptations began to play again and people went backs upon Allah to worshipping different types of idols. But this time, the type of idol that the people of some mood were following weren't only statues, they did follow statues upon law, but they had an associate idol and net was themselves themselves.

00:34:37--> 00:35:00

They governed what happens they govern what doesn't have they govern what's right and they governed what's wrong. And they made themselves Gods as for the belief of statues was just something symbolic. A secret a belief individual belief, which they found their forefathers on they had no not much meaning but just as you know, something and identity to hold on. On to that's all false. All right. Does that it

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

really care. What they really cared about was their advanced technology as well.

00:35:05--> 00:35:41

They had learned from it that they once had ancestors that were advanced in technology. There's nothing wrong with being advanced in technology. But you use the advancement in technologies for good, not for wrong, and did not take pride in the sense that now you see yourself superior to everyone else, this is the wrong thing about it. And you don't let it overtake your worship and your purpose in life and make it your main aim and objective. There are people who work at night and day, it even gets in the way of their prayers and name wave their family, wave their worship, wave them the loved ones, just for the sake of money, building, and building and buying and building until

00:35:41--> 00:35:50

they die. And so pantalon none of them ever reached their goal, the richest of riches. And this is what allows Mandela despises people who consume the world so

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

provocatively to consume the world's panelists. So

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

you know, obsessively is something that Allah spent Allah wants us from becoming.

00:36:02--> 00:36:14

So the people of thermowood worship themselves a little bit more than worshipping their idols. They were even more advanced in their technology than the former cousins. I had.

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

They built as a last minute I mentioned them in the Quran.

00:36:22--> 00:36:27

He said, Why thermo then Idina Jabu sauce

00:36:30--> 00:36:49

and relate the story or the mention of thermowood who used to bring the huge rocks and stones from beneath deep valleys. In another verse of the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says, Then he tuna mineralogy Benny boo.

00:36:50--> 00:37:02

And you are people of color mod is referring to you carved into mountains, homes and palaces, this is their advanced technology they used to carve inside of mountains of rocks.

00:37:04--> 00:37:05

This is a mountain the cliff

00:37:07--> 00:37:18

and they would carve with their tools, rooms and corridors and buildings and stories and beautiful features inside of Rocky Mountains.

00:37:20--> 00:37:24

And they allowed air and and light to come in

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

spontini spontaneously and also in an orderly fashion.

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

How did they do that?

00:37:34--> 00:37:51

How did they bring huge stones, the size of hills, the size of this mosque, from beneath valleys, depth of valleys, and how did they actually carve into mountains palaces that they lived in, allowing light to penetrate and air to penetrate everything.

00:37:52--> 00:38:04

This was their advanced technology. Till today it is a wonder of the world till today without advanced technology today, we find that difficult to do something like that. Imagine that primitive time

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

and again, this got to their heads, brothers and sisters you can actually Allah has left for us their artifacts, their buildings today. You can see them there in Jordan.

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

And you can look them up on the internet

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

and you will find them

00:38:22--> 00:38:30

you can still see they're carved out palaces and castles and homes inside of cliffs and mountains. They are there

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

and people see them all the time to tourist attraction.

00:38:38--> 00:38:44

And a lot of this time lift them as a sign of their existence and what Allah had had done to them mentioned in the Quran

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

when silent came to them

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

Sila alayhis salaam

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

also was raised among them Allah mentions him in the Quran saying

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

why he left the mood

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

Buddha

00:39:09--> 00:39:12

min in one year oh god

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

cada

00:39:24--> 00:39:24

una

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

de una katan la de la come

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

further Oh

00:39:43--> 00:39:45

I'm so happy.

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

For that go neither boon

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

Allah says, and to samode we sent their brother sorry. He said, Oh my people worship

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

If Allah you have no God other than Him, there has now come to you a clear sign from your Lord. This is a lost sheep camel assigned for you. So leave her alone to graze on the laws Earth and did not harm her, lest a painful chastisement should seize you. The story goes like this, Sila alayhis. Salam was known to be wise and honest among them. When he came to them with the message of worshiping one God and stopping the worship of idols and stopping the worship of themselves.

00:40:31--> 00:40:56

They turned to him and the words that they ceased to say to him were silent. Quinta Phoenix, Sala Hakata Quint afina module. This is also known for an outsider, you used to be a respected, honorable person among us. What happened to you? In other words, what happened to you? Why did you go crazy, all of a sudden, you used to be an honorable and respectful person among us.

00:40:58--> 00:41:04

This is the sleaze. This is the sneaky manipulative way

00:41:05--> 00:41:06

that the corrupters

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

of morality and justice speak.

00:41:13--> 00:41:35

The media is driven by them, and they drive these thoughts through the media. They make you see an evil person as a hero. And they can make a hero look as an evil person. They can make a totally intelligent person look as though they know nothing and primitive. And a primitive person was filled with stupidity and arrogance and immorality

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

of the most

00:41:39--> 00:41:43

worst of type to look like they are the most intelligent of the world, Allahu Akbar.

00:41:48--> 00:41:53

They said to him called quanta Faena module where you were respectful, honorable person among us.

00:41:54--> 00:42:06

What happened to you? He said to them, oh, my people. If you think that what I am saying to you is too much. And if you think that what I'm saying to you makes no sense. If you don't believe what I have come to you with.

00:42:09--> 00:42:47

Then how can I force it upon you when you don't want it? I know resumo como Antonella? hakkari hoon? Allah says, should we force it upon you when you don't want it? I'm not gonna force it upon you. But I am only an advisor and a one or two from God. So then they turned to him and said, Okay, so then bring to us assign, we want a miracle. You call yourself a prophet, we want a miracle. Now, the reason why they asked him this question, brother, sister is not to know the truth. They had already known the truth. So we know who saw it is. His words made sense to them, but now they're being sarcastic? They're being silly. So what did the latest come and say, childish Lee? They said, We

00:42:47--> 00:42:53

want a miracle from you show us so sorry. Let's turn back to them and said, Okay, good. You want a miracle and assign

00:42:54--> 00:43:01

I will give you a miracle and aside from my Lord, if he wills, I am but a messenger from God. So then

00:43:03--> 00:43:07

they sit in them bring us one saw that turned around and said to them,

00:43:09--> 00:43:16

my Lord says, anything you choose, you choose it. You say what you want to see as a miracle.

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

And I will do it for you be in India with the power of Allah.

00:43:22--> 00:43:27

They said we'll decide they said you decide they said anything. He said, you name it and it will happen you choose.

00:43:29--> 00:43:39

So they said they gathered each other the mela as well as my cousin of the mela alladhina stuck baru, the leaders of them who were full of arrogance and proudness and haughtiness.

00:43:44--> 00:43:56

They said to him, one of them said, okay, we want you to produce to us a fully grown she camel, camel, that's a female.

00:43:57--> 00:44:00

It can be born from any other camel.

00:44:01--> 00:44:07

And it can be a baby that's growing, it has to be right there and then a full grown chicken will pop up like that.

00:44:09--> 00:44:37

They left then a second person said, Oh, I have one to this same shape camel that has to pop up from nowhere has to be the hugest chicken when we have ever laid eyes on in our life. A third person said in fact there has to have at least one as to be so big that there is a well that we share that we drink from in the city as we so big that it would need to drink from this whole one well, so that no more water is left in the world for the whole city to drink in one day.

00:44:39--> 00:44:49

Then a fourth person said I have a good one. The same shape camel has to come out from that rock over there. There was like a hill a rock it has to come out from the rock.

00:44:51--> 00:44:57

Then a sixth person said the shake camel also has to come out. pregnant

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

with another camel.

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

has to be a male, just about to be given birth just given birth to.

00:45:06--> 00:45:14

They all laughed, and they started to talk among each other. The media went out, then saw that came back to them and said,

00:45:16--> 00:45:21

in fact, it took me noon. If I did this, will you then believe

00:45:22--> 00:45:30

they looked at each other and said, Of course we will. sarcastically. They went back, I'm calling him a crazy man, a lunatic, a silly man.

00:45:32--> 00:45:52

A few weeks months went by, and this is the way I lost my dollar works with the people who go against him. He lets them for a little while, until they all talk among each other and they say the you know, words that they will regret later on. So we let them go for a little while. Nothing happened. Then the day came by the brothers and sisters, as I said and described it to us.

00:45:54--> 00:46:03

And one day Sarla had made an appointment for them and said to them, come and meet me neither rock that you chose the big stone or the big cliff. They met him there.

00:46:04--> 00:46:07

And we didn't allow the power of Allah Spano, tala before their eyes.

00:46:09--> 00:46:14

The earth rumbled, and the big stone or the big hill cracked open

00:46:16--> 00:46:20

and out of it, walked the largest chic camel they've ever seen

00:46:23--> 00:46:29

and was pregnant with another camel, almost about to give birth before their eyes.

00:46:32--> 00:46:35

Obviously not. The whole town was there. There were the leaders and the main people.

00:46:37--> 00:46:42

When they saw this before their eyes, the messenger saw Elisa Lam Seiler said to them,

00:46:44--> 00:46:47

heard he Nakata la de la ku.

00:46:50--> 00:47:05

This is the she camel of Allah. It doesn't belong to anyone. It's not born from any other comments or last camel. This is the she camel of Allah for you, as an area as a miracle as a sign as you have asked

00:47:07--> 00:47:40

for the Roja, you have to now leave it God has made a condition you're not allowed to harm it, not allowed to touch it. And you have to leave it to graze wherever it wants. Also, since you asked for it to drink from your well as you requested, you have to leave the world for one whole day No one's allowed to touch the world the she camel has to drink. And so the she camel drank for one whole day and it finished all the water the next day as the fountain or as the the water built up, it said and the next day the village gets to drink. So one day she came home one day the rest of the city

00:47:43--> 00:47:54

it gave birth to which new camel and now the baby camel also needed to drink with it. So they would finish the whole well and the next day the whole city would have to come and drink from it. Well

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

only a small amount of people believed

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

and the amount of people that believed were the ones considered inferior. Allah says in the Quran columella own laziness duck biomin Kamini laziness stood by phony man man I mean whom layman mmm in whom? Allah Muna

00:48:24--> 00:48:31

Robbie Cano in Vienna or syllabi Menon

00:48:35--> 00:48:38

in the lobby ready

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

to be

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

found

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

out Well, I don't want

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

him

00:48:52--> 00:48:57

to be him walk on oil on it. Dena been

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

at NAB.

00:49:02--> 00:49:23

In terminal almost any law, the Chiefs losses, the chiefs of those who behaved arrogantly among his people said to those who are considered weak from those who believed. Do you know that silent Do you believe that silence is sent by the Lord?

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

They said, Indeed, we believe in the messenger with which he has been sent, or the message which with with which has been sent. Those who are haughty said, we certainly disbelieve in what you believe. So they slew or they slay the she camel and insolently defied the Lord's command and challenge Sarla saying, bring us that which you threaten us with. If you are a messenger.

00:49:51--> 00:49:56

They killed it. They slaughtered it, and they ate it and they killed its baby.

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

And they said to the ones inferior to them as they consider

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

We are disbelievers in what has come to us stupid people. This is magic. This is sorcery. They went and killed it and they said to sila bring us to what you have been exactly

00:50:11--> 00:50:13

like the oppressors of the world today.

00:50:15--> 00:50:19

It says that Iraq's a group of young men who were troublemakers about eight of them

00:50:20--> 00:50:23

they got together in secret with the chiefs of the city.

00:50:24--> 00:50:42

And they sit in secret when Silas was away. They said, we're going to go in the night and we will kill the she camel because the she camel has caused us problems. What is this everyone's now believing in what cider has come with kill it get rid of it. We can't lose what we have pride and power. Secondly, what's
