Indeed All praise is due to a law and as such we should praise Him, seek His help and seek His forgiveness.
And we should seek refuge in a law from the evil which is within ourselves and the evil which results from our deeds. For whomsoever Allah has guided, none can misguide.
And also ever law has allowed to go astray, none can guide

Brothers and sisters.
We continue in this football,
to look at
the story, the true story of the job.
And in the previous hotbar,
we spoke about the importance of knowing about the job
where prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stressed this knowledge, so much so that he added it as a dua at the end of our daily prayers.
And the Sahaba said, that he used to teach us this,
the way that he taught a verse from the Quran
meaning that this is not something
in passing, the prophet SAW Salah mentioned it, this is something he stressed.
And as we said in the previous footbaww, Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam had said that it would be the most difficult, the most horrendous trial that humankind would face from the time of the creation of Adam, until the end of the world.
So we looked at
who this individual was.
And we clarified in those descriptions given by the prophet SAW salam, that Adele Zhao was a man
was an individual.
And he cannot be reinterpreted as some have done today. You can find on the internet, those who claim that at the jail
is the United Kingdom.
as the Protestants back in the 15th century claim that at the job was the Pope.
The head of the Catholics
at the job
is a particular human being at least the Christians got it right. He was a man
may have been the wrong man but at least they had it clear that it was a man
Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam
after describing the features of his face, his neck, his bill, how he would walk all of these different things. He went on to say that there is a particular individual amongst them by the name of Abdullah za, Eben Katana, who was from with the identified from the masala clan of the Hosea tribe. In pre Islamic times he was known to the people. That's who the Zhao most looks like.
And in his own time,
there was an individual by the name of Eben Sajjad, a man.
It didn't say a
word spread in Medina that he was able to read people's minds.
This is recorded in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.
He was able to read people's minds.
And the prophets are Salaam set off with Omar Abdullah hottub to go and meet him.
And we asked him to read what was in his mind.
And he said a dog, a dog, Professor Sallam had in his mind at Doohan,
he got a piece of it,
indicating that he was obviously working with what we might call supernatural forces.
But we know those supernatural forces are the forces of the jinn.
And when the prophet SAW Selim,
from that confirm that he wasn't in fact, the gel but the suspicion lay in the mind of Omar
Omar asked permission to go and kill him.
And the prophet SAW Solomon said,
if he was at the jail, you wouldn't be able to kill him.
And if he wasn't, then
I would be known as killing my followers. Because he was among the people of Medina was supposed to have been a Muslim
or killing the people of Medina.
Again, this was a human being.
The prophets I seldom confirmed that he wasn't in fact, at the jail, if at the jail was not a person, then this would not have been an issue talked about at all.
one of the companions by the name of Tamim a daddy
who was a former Christian who converted to Islam,
who had set off
on a ship with other companions
to the east,
the Far East,
and the ship became shipwrecked on an island
and he had an experience there on the island. When he came back, they eventually were able to repair the ship and they came back to
He came to the prophet SAW Salaam, and he told him what he experienced there on this island.
And the prophet SAW Salaam had an announcement made in Medina in which he called the people to the masjid
and after he finished praying,
he stood up before them and he introduced them to Tamim. A daddy
told them about him
and had him relate his experience.
This is authentic tradition of the prophets Allah.
He goes on to explain.
This is found in a Muslim that they had
gone into the island after they were shipwrecked and they
came across a beast
that was covered in here.
And they couldn't determine from the hairy ness of the beast, which was its head and which was its
backside, couldn't figure it out. They look the same. That's how it was described.
And it spoke to them.
They spoke to it.
It identified itself as algebra sauce.
And it told them about someone in a monastery that is waiting for them.
So they went
taking all the precautions
assuming that this is something devilish
evil, they came into the monastery. And they found there a man
who met the description that the prophets of Salaam gave away.
And he was chained arms,
chained to his neck, feet shackled.
And he asked them questions. They answered, explaining who they were, where they came from, etc.
And in the end, when they asked him So who are you, he said, I am a digital
and the time will come.
Not too long from now.
When I will be free.
Now to me, my daddy hadn't heard the description that the prophet SAW Selim had given us the job. This is why the prophet SAW Selim brought in
it was a convert to Islam, you haven't heard the descriptions. So he had him say to them, what they saw what they experience because this was confirmation in the to the people not that anybody would disbelieve Prophet Muhammad SAW Salim anyway. Right. But it was just further confirmation of
And the information that he is already present in the world.
the gaag and the Magog.
Yeah, George and George,
they are not known to people.
Where they are exactly is unknown.
The time of their release
is with a law.
He is chained
and his time would come.
This is the information that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave us.
Some people would ask
how is it that he is he was already in the world in the time of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah 1400 years ago?
How long did prophet know he lived for?
How long has
Satan Iblees been living?
We can't argue or discuss about how it is that he could be living for so long. How it is that Prophet Isa is still alive.
And we'll come back at the end of time.
This is not our area, to debate or to argue about or to try to interpret
what the prophet SAW Selim has told us on this matter is true.
The House of the matter is with a law.
There are so many other things that we don't know how we don't need to get stuck on this one little thing.
It's a big thing in the general sense of who that is. But the issue about him being present in the world, even now is not a big issue.
Now Prophet Muhammad wa salam
had informed us that he would appear
at a particular time,
and we spoke about that, in the previous football, when would a job appear?
So that we would not have any confusion? No one would say he's
appeared he's doing his stuff in the world now is, you know, we're coming under the attack, the end of the world is coming No.
There would be three signs before his coming.
We said the first sign was that one third of the earth.
For one year, rain would stop.
The second sign is that in the second year, two thirds of the earth, there would be no rain.
And the third sign is that in the third year,
there would be a drought throughout the world. No rain would fall anywhere on the face of the earth.
It might seem impossible to us now.
But just remember that the Sahara Desert, the Gobi Desert, all these deserts were once lush with vegetation.
They dig up in these areas, fossils of the dinosaurs and others. In places that were deserts. Before these deserts weren't deserts. They were forests.
So if that can happen, then know that a time can come
when no rain for one year would fall on the earth.
That is the time
he would be released from the island.
And he would make his way
And this is not a special da against the Shiites or anything like this.
Yes, we know
what Shia Islam is and what it represents. And the treacherous role it has played in the history of Islam, Muslims, and continues to play.
But the prophet SAW Salam had said specifically,
in a hadith narrated by Abu Bakar
found in a tirmidhi, authentic living narrative in which he said, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam had said that john would appear from a land in the East called Orissa.
A land in the East called Cora.
is the name of the Eastern Province, north eastern province of Persia from the time of the sassanids.
in the past it used to include
parts of Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan,
but mainly Iran.
Now it is encompassed in Iran.
divided up divided it up into three provinces north south and
the place where
he would first be announced
his presence known in the world that Jarl has appeared
in Iran, chorus
and he will be accompanied the promises element said by people whose faces
Look like flat, beaten iron. That's how he described it.
From this description before people had said
in the 13th century that this was the Mongols,
the Mongols because the Mongols came from the east, and they devastated the Muslim world massacred huge numbers.
But it wasn't them.
the province Our solemn had said
that he would make contact with the Muslim forces
between Syria and Iraq.
This is where his forces will have come together, those following him would have come together and the beginning of the battle for the world
would take place.
The forces that he will be struggling against will be the forces of the mind D.
And the story of the man he of course, is another True story. Again, our children know about Superman, Spider Man and all the other men
but they don't know about the man.
But that is another story point is that he would be one who allow would raise up amongst the Muslim Ummah, in that period
reunite the Muslim world and become the world leader of most of the Muslim states, Muslim peoples.
The Alif, the silica or the caliphate would be revived at that point.
Anyway, his forces would come in conflict or in contact with those of the journal in
the region between Iraq and Syria.
Among the followers of the Jarl Bahasa Salaam had mentioned
that when he appeared in a when he appears in
70,000 Jews of his forehand wearing their ritual shawls, would follow him to join his forces.
But it's not to say that they represented the totality of his forces, others will join him from all around the world.
Muslims will join us forces
is for one, for those of you that don't know it
is the capital of Isfahan province in Iran,
about 340 kilometres south of Teheran, the capital of Iran today.
And it was once one of the greatest cities on the earth is known, a major city now it doesn't have much significance to most of the world. But at one time, it was a great city.
He would from those initial
conference conflicts with Muslim forces defeat those forces.
he would spread his control his reign over much of the known world
what we know of the world today, much of it would be under his
And we said that when he appeared,
he would appear after this period of drought.
And he will have with him
a mountain of bread
and a mountain of meat, which would follow him to mountains would follow him of course,
in your mind, you're trying to figure out how mountains are gonna follow him. Don't go into the house.
leave the house to Allah.
But a mountain of bread and meat with follow Him, remember he is coming at the time of mass starvation across the earth.
He will call people to believe in him. believe in Him as what?
as a prophet. No, we said he will be calling them to believe in Him as God as a law, to accept Him as their Lord.
Now, historically, we've had people do this before I mentioned,
in New York City, we had father divine,
who claimed he was God.
He fed the poor during the Depression.
And salvation India, we had Sai Baba, who claimed he was God incarnate, he fed the poor, set up hospitals benefited people.
So we have had people at different points, who claimed that they were God, but their claims could not
affect the world, it may have affected the people of that region who are desperate and poor, so that a number of them may follow them.
But they didn't affect the world.
It would be nothing compared to the trial of the job.
You have world starvation.
And those people
who accept his call and believe in Him,
He will command the sky to rain for them. And it would begin to rain.
And the Earth would bear fruit.
And for those who still held out rejected him,
when he left their area, the next morning, whatever they had stored up
wealth, to buy food, etc, without the god
wherever he went,
or he goes, he will command the earth
to bring it forth bring forth his treasures,
the gold, the silver, whatever wealth lay beneath
the surface of the Earth would come out.
And it would follow him.
And the prophet SAW sentiment said he would
go across the earth from one end to the other north, south east west, like wind driven rain entering all the cities of the earth.
And he warned us
that if we hear that he is coming,
not to think that we could stand before him, that we are going to resist him
but to flee
that time. If we hear his coming,
flee, don't wait around.
Think that you can gather some people together and
kill him or whatever. Run for your lives
as the last one to Allah
to protect us in this time to come.
And if it occurs whilst we are living,
that we take the advice of the prophets or Salam and flee from our for our lives, that he make a way for us at that time to escape his trial. And that we are able to be remixed to remain firm on our faith on our knowledge of who he is and our knowledge of who Allah is and to remain steadfast in our worship of Allah at that great trial and tribulation.
Apollo cola was done for lolly welcome on this island Mr minimun Khalid amphastar crew in Nauvoo will have a full ride
hamdulillah are solid salatu salam ala rasulillah
the trials of a dejavu
When one of the companions went to the prophet SAW celemony asked him
Mata saya rasulillah. When will the hour occur? When is the final hour coming?
He said, my father,
what have you prepared for it?
This is the lesson from what
Prophet Mohammed Salah has taught us about the times to come, that we need to take this is the most important lesson.
On one hand, it's good to have this accurate, detailed information of the future
of events which must take place
as they were described by Rasulullah sallallahu.
But the essence of the message is being prepared,
that we are prepared for that time.
And it's that preparation is not something that will happen when we finally hear the drought started, all of a sudden we start preparing.
The preparation begins from now.
Not like those people.
You know, every year you have somebody coming along, saying the end of the world is next year.
So people start gathering up food and sticking it in the basements. And
I don't mean like this. The preparation is spiritual preparation.
That we would be spiritually prepared to handle the trials of that time.
preparing ourselves as Prophet Mohammed Solomon said,
Pray the farewell prayer.
that our prayers should be
each and every time we pray,
a farewell prayer, a prayer that we would make. If we were informed that this is the last prayer we can pray
before we die
the way we would pray at that time, this is the goal of prayer for us now, to make every prayer like that prayer.
we have to understand
that the trial of that time
is not only one of starvation,
people's need hunger, which will drive them to accept that job.
It is also a spiritual trial. Because what he will do
in the different places that he goes to,
he will approach the people
and He will say to some of them,
will you believe that I am your Lord? If I bring back to life if I resurrect your father and your mother
and people will say yes.
If you can resurrect my dead father and mother, then you have to be alone.
Because Allah is the one who resurrects
This is a delusion that people will be caught up in.
And when they say yes, we'll believe he will bring to life.
The father and the mother of that person.
And the people who know that person who knew his father and mother will see his father and mother alive before their eyes. Because I saw them explained that it would be two chimneys
who would take the form of the father and mother of that person.
The Corinne for example, that is with the Father in the mother
knows what they look like etc. Take the form.
At that time, take the form of the father and the mother
And they will say to the man, or woman,
oh, my dear son,
believe in Him, because He is a law.
And what are people going to do at that time?
Of course, they forget that Prophet Isa alayhis salam, in his own time brought the dead back to life. This was his miracle.
By the power of a law,
the dead came back to life in the time of prophecies at his command.
And it is even recorded in the scriptures of the Jews that earlier prophets, that also was a miracle for some of them.
So by the power of a law, any of these things are possible.
But of course,
it's easy to forget all of that when you see your father and mother who are dead for the last 20 years or 40 years alive in front of you, talking to you.
So unless faith is firm at that time, we'll be finished.
We will become among his followers.
the prophet SAW Solomon said, and taneema daddy narrated the same thing from the job
that he would enter every city on the earth except for Mecca and Medina.
Those will be the only two cities on the face of the earth, that he will be unable to enter.
However, he will camp outside of Medina.
And when he is camped outside and the people of Medina know he is there,
three earthquakes will hit Medina, one after the other.
And 10s of 1000s of people from Medina will leave and join him,
they will leave Medina enjoy join his forces.
So, no brothers and sisters, that will be a time of major trial.
And it is only a firm belief in the last one to Allah,
firmly rooted deep rooted, which drives us before the time of the incident that will get us through that period.
And it is the same
ultimately, which will take us to paradise. So this is what we need to work on from today.
And this was the example of Prophet Mohammed some of it was
the example of a man manifest living he man.
He man was in his knees
in his words,
and in his art.
And it is because of that example that he left.
While last month he had said to us in the Quran that God can have Lacombe Rasulullah escena there isn't the Messenger of Allah for you the best of examples that we asked the last one to Allah to bless him alone was only Allah Muhammad wilda Ali Mohammed come out so later ally Rahim. Allah Allah brought him in naka hamidou Majeed.
We asked the last one to Allah to give us the best of this world and the best of the next, and to forgive our sins.
We ask a lot to forgive our errors of the past. And to bring us back to the straight path sirata must have been. We asked a lot to protect our families, our children, to forgive those of our relatives who have died passed away.
We asked the last one to Allah to protect the oma from the forces that seek to destroy it.
We ask a lot SWAT Allah to support the awakening, the movement for awakening all over the Muslim world today, and to give this movement success, and to bring Muslims back together again, to establish the rule of law in this world, we ask a law to forgive our rulers who have mis ruled our nations to these days, we ask Allah to give them those around them which would guide them to rule in accordance with the way that the law has prescribed. And we asked a law to allow the oma to be remained firm on this path of Islam and to leave this world saying in in non law
