00:00:03--> 00:00:23

in WA salatu salam ala rasulillah, Karim, Allah Allah was hobby woman standing beside Nigeria, Medina, operates due to a law and realize Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a minority those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:00:24--> 00:00:27

In the previous session, we

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

looked at the

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

effort of little Cornyn to block the gaag and the Magog

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

tribes from

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

wreaking havoc

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

on the people who are between the two mountain paths were either before it or near to it behind it at the base of the two mountains.

00:00:54--> 00:01:20

And we spoke at that time about the garden, the main dog, in terms of who they were, we clarified that they were not the Mongols that some people had imagined. But in fact, they were people who did carry some similarity in terms of the features in the way Prophet Muhammad wa sallam described them there are similarities between them, and the Mongols, the Turks.

00:01:22--> 00:01:31

And we talked about how little Cornyn dealt with the

00:01:32--> 00:02:17

people that he came across there in terms of helping them. And we talked about the different benefits that we could extract from how he functioned with those people who offered to pay him money, though he for the work, he was doing those legitimate form to take it, he had the means to do it himself a lot already supplied him with sufficient means. So it was not necessary. So he didn't take it. And that was the way of the righteous we talked about, you know how from that there are different principles for leadership, you know, how rulers, those in positions of responsibility, are supposed to work with their subjects in terms of providing from their own means, where they are the

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

subjects or a need, etc, etc.

00:02:22--> 00:02:39

And, basically, we ended up with the final picture of the wall, which was set up by a little Cornyn, one which the garden the Magog could not climb over or tunnel through.

00:02:40--> 00:02:52

However, we did mention that efforts were underway. And even in the time of problems I sell them, he did announce that holes were being made in the wall.

00:02:55--> 00:03:04

So that it took us up basically to verse 97. We're continuing today from verse 98.

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

A lot of states there. Paula hada. Ramadan, Robbie vida, Robbie Jalla hood that our can be hardcore.

00:03:17--> 00:03:30

he exclaimed. That is no Cornyn. This is a mercy from my Lord. But when my lord's promise comes to pass, he will level it and my lord's promise is always true.

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

Paula hi Doc Martin Mira be

00:03:35--> 00:03:41

on the completion of the wall. Little Canadian exclaimed, this is the mercy This is a mercy from my Lord.

00:03:43--> 00:04:07

In doing so, he attributed the execution of this enormous project to a loss of Renata Allah and His grace, not to himself. And this is the way of the righteous servants of Allah. And whatever they do, though it may be their efforts etc. They attributed back ultimately to Allah. Father john Awad Dora be Jaya Allahu

00:04:10--> 00:04:20

Lacan and then went on to prophesied about the future of the wall, saying, but when my lord's promise comes to pass, he will level it.

00:04:21--> 00:04:28

The Lord's promise refers either to the time of the garden the Magog when they will emerge,

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

or to the time of the last day. Either way,

00:04:34--> 00:04:49

they're coming out is one of the signs of the last day so it applies in both case, both cases. When the appointed time arrives, in spite of the walls, enormous size and strength, it will crumble by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was reported to have said goggan May God dig holes in the dam every day until they

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

Almost able to see sunlight.

00:05:03--> 00:05:41

When the leader tells them go back, you will complete it tomorrow. However, a lot causes it to be rebuilt stronger than it was before. However, when they reach their appointed time in which Allah ordains to let them loose upon people, they will dig until they see sunlight. Then their leader will instruct them go back. You will complete it tomorrow Allah willing, they will respond Allah willing, when they return, they will find it as they left it the day before then they will complete the hole and emerge upon humankind.

00:05:45--> 00:05:56

So problem is SLM describes a process an ongoing process right now, where the goggan the Magog are trying to penetrate this wall,

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

but they're unable to do so.

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

They come close to it, but each time it becomes more difficult for them. However, when Allah has decreed that the wall is to fall and they are to come out,

00:06:15--> 00:06:55

then their efforts bear fruit, and they're able to ultimately break through. Well Canada Derby Hopper, though Cornyn concluded his prophecy saying and my lord's promise is always true. Meaning that allows promise concerning the emergence of the goggan the Magog must be fulfilled. If it did not take place. It would mean either the law was unable to make it happen, or that he lied about it. Both of which could not possibly be attributed to Allah. Once Allah said this is going to happen then it must happen.

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Verse 99

00:06:59--> 00:07:24

what tarakan nabba whom Yama Eden yeah mucho FIBA wonderful Hafiz sore for Gemma and now whom Gemma on that day, I will let them surge in waves over each other. Then the Trumpet will be blown and I will collect all of them together. What terracotta bah bah whom Yama Ed mucho fee bow.

00:07:26--> 00:08:03

Almighty Allah then briefly describes what will happen when the wall falls saying on that day I will let them surge in waves over each other. And another chapter of the Quran Allah adds further details to this event, saying had either 40 hottie Juju, Juju, while home men Cooley had been young saloon until when Gaga and the Magog are let loose from their barrier, and they swiftly swarm down every slope that's in Surah Al ambia 21st chapter, verse 96.

00:08:05--> 00:08:25

The release of the garden the May God is one of the major signs of the last day. Are they Fabian who said reported that on one occasion, the Prophet sallahu wa salam came to them while they were busy in discussion and asked what are you discussing about? They replied, we are discussing about the last hour.

00:08:26--> 00:08:40

He then said, it will not come to pass until you see 10 signs, it will not come to pass until you see 10 signs, the smoke

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

that Jarl

00:08:43--> 00:08:55

the beast, the rising of the sun in the West, the descent of Jesus, the garden, the Magog, and the sinking of land in three locations in the east,

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

the West and in Arabia, followed by a huge fire, which would begin in Yemen and drive people to their place of assembly.

00:09:09--> 00:09:28

So he said the hour will not come to pass until you see 10 signs, the smoke, the smoke, you can find reference to it in Surah. Doohan as a 44th chapter, verse 10. That Jarl the beast, the beast, you can find reference to it in Surah number

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

27th chapter, verse 82.

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

The rising of the sun in the West.

00:09:36--> 00:09:51

Problem was asylum it said that repentance will be accepted by a law until the sun rises in the West. That's one of the signs where repentance will no longer be accepted.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

The descent of Jesus the second return Second Coming of Jesus, the garden, the maid

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

gaag the sinking of land in three locations, some kind of earthquake, where in some cases earthquakes, the earth splits apart. In some places there is huge depressions like

00:10:13--> 00:10:30

plates of the earth move in different directions and what is in between drops. Again they call it Hospital in Arabic. So this is the sinking of the earth and the eastern the western Arabia followed by a huge fire, which would begin in Yemen and drive people to their places of assembly.

00:10:32--> 00:11:01

And the authentically narrated explanations of the Prophet so I sell them regarding goggan the Magog. The picture which emerges is that their release will occur at the end of the era of the Antichrist, Allah mercy at the jail to be at the end of his era. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam prophesied that the Antichrist will establish himself and rule over the entire earth for 40 years. The first day of his reign will be like a year,

00:11:02--> 00:11:21

the second like a month, the third like a week, and the rest of the days will be like our normal days. When he mentioned that, the companions asked him, How would they determine their prayer times? That first day, which would be like a year?

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

First day, which would be like a year?

00:11:25--> 00:11:42

How would this tablished their times for prayer? Would they just pray five times and that's it for the whole year? Because it's like a day. And the prophet SAW solemn, told them that they should estimate and calculate it estimated?

00:11:43--> 00:12:01

in that question of the Sahaba, you know, this is after the prophet SAW Selim describes what the jail is going to do and everything else, their concern was not so much for themselves. What would we do? If the jail catches us? Their main concern was Salah.

00:12:02--> 00:12:07

It's very interesting to note, that was their first concern, how are we going to make so long?

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

No worry about themselves, but worried about their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. Also, in the prophet SAW salams answer, estimate it.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

He left behind

00:12:22--> 00:12:27

a legal ruling, by which we are able to pray

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

by which we're able to play under all circumstances,

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

regardless of where we are,

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

people often ask what do we do in some parts of the earth in the north, where you have six months of daylight in Alaska, and six months of night? How do you pray them?

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

Or what about people on the International Space Station? And the shuttles? What about when people land on Mars?

00:12:57--> 00:13:19

What are they going to do? I mean, if there are Muslims among them, how are they going to prey on the prophet SAW Selim left the principle for us, you estimate it, we have another watch, or fudger, which tells you your 24 hour prayer times. See, this is the prophet SAW Selim. Remember now he was speaking at a time in Arabia,

00:13:20--> 00:13:25

where people were able to calculate times of prayer by what

00:13:27--> 00:13:37

by the sun, the movement of the sun, you know, they made crude sundials sticks on the ground, watching the shadow of the sun.

00:13:38--> 00:13:38

Now,

00:13:39--> 00:13:49

in those times, somebody says to you estimate it, if you only have sunlight for one year, how do you estimate it?

00:13:50--> 00:14:02

See, obviously, problem is our solemn was leaving information for the future future generations where people would be able to estimate it, because in that time, are you going to estimate it

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

with that technology and that knowledge wasn't possible.

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

Anyway, the point is that

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

at the end of the jobs rule, at the end of the 40 years,

00:14:23--> 00:14:28

Prophet Jesus will return to lead the believers in a war against the job.

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

Prior to that point,

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

the believers will be led by whom

00:14:39--> 00:14:43

the MADI right there will be led by the mighty

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

and they will end up

00:14:47--> 00:14:51

barricaded blockaded in Jerusalem.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

When Prophet Isa returns anyway, at this point Prophet Isa Jesus

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

will lead the battle against the Zhao.

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

Zhao will see him run he will track him down and kill him personally.

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

To confirm for the people that he was, in fact dead.

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

And after killing him, of course the people are elated. They're happy they're thronging around Prophet Isa etc.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

Prophet Muhammad wa salam narrates

00:15:31--> 00:15:59

a group of people who Byelaws help survive the debt digital war will come to Jesus, who will anoint their faces and tell them of their grades in paradise. Shortly thereafter, while this is happening, a law will say to Jesus, I have raised the people of my creation that no one can defeat. Therefore gather my slaves to a tour mount tour.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

Then Allah will raise the garden the Magog and they will swiftly swarm from every mount.

00:16:11--> 00:16:15

They will dominate the earth, as the general before dominated the earth.

00:16:17--> 00:16:25

Jesus was able to defeat the jungle, but Allah has informed him that he cannot defeat the garden the Maycock

00:16:26--> 00:16:54

I will say the laundry narrative the browser Sallam said the Guardian the Magog will be released upon humankind just as a law said, and they will swiftly swarm from every mound, they will overwhelm the people and Muslims will have to seek refuge in their cities and fortresses along with their capital goggan they may god will consume the Earth's waters, some of them will pass by a river and consume all of its water until it becomes dry.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

Whoever is following them will pass by the riverbed and remark there once was water here.

00:17:03--> 00:17:26

Everyone will seek refuge in fortresses or cities. One among the goggling May God will exclaim, we are finished with those inhabitants of the earth, only the inhabitants of the sky remain, then one of them will have to spear and heave it into the sky, and it will fall back with blood on it as a test and a trial for human beings.

00:17:28--> 00:17:38

So the dog and the dog will gain control over the earth, and its resources and dominate all parts of the earth.

00:17:41--> 00:18:07

And their challenge to people, not only will be a physical challenge of domination, physical domination and enslavement, but also spiritual domination by throwing that spirit to the heavens, and it coming back down with blood on it. signifying that they have killed whoever is in the heavens, meaning they've killed the God that you believe in. That's only left them you know, that is a spiritual test,

00:18:09--> 00:18:35

similar to some of the things which digital will bring. But in spite of their domination, this is the nature of a law that were countries, empires, cities, individuals may dominate for a period of time. No matter how powerful they become. There is an end to their domination, it will come the end will come. So though

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

the

00:18:39--> 00:18:47

leadership of Prophet Isa was not sufficient to defeat them in the battlefield and didn't have the means to do so.

00:18:49--> 00:19:36

Allah defeats them. And now us even sir man, he caught the Messenger of Allah is saying Jesus last prophet will be cornered along with his companions and blockaded until the head of a bull will be more precious to them than 100 dinars to you today, Jesus prophet of Allah and his companions will turn to align prayers, then Allah will send worms which will attach themselves onto the next of the garden demagogue. I was either fully continued this description, quoting the professor Salama saying, Allah will send creatures like locusts larvae, which will bore into their necks until they die like locusts piled one upon another. In the morning, the Muslims barricaded with Prophet Jesus

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

will not hear a sound from them. The Muslims will ask, will somebody sacrifice himself by going out and seeing what has happened to them? A man from among them will go out certain that they will kill him only to find them all dead, piled one on top of the other. He will then proclaim to Muslims good news. Your enemy has been destroyed by a law

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

Then the people will come out of their fortresses and release their cattle, and there'll be nothing for the cattle to graze on besides the corpses of the garden the Magog, the capital will become fatter from them than they ever did from eating grass.

00:20:16--> 00:21:03

Following that, and now watching the same man goes on to quote the prophets of cinema saying afterwards, Jesus, the prophet of Allah will come down from on tour with his companions to the low ground, they will not find as much as the palms with of space, free from the fact and rotting corpses of the garden the Magog, Jesus, the prophet of Allah and his companions will then turn to align prayer. And Allah will send birds as large as the necks of camels, which will pick the corpses up and carry them and drop them wherever law wills then a law will send rain which will destroy all houses made from mud bricks, or animal here and clean the earth the way a mirror is cleaned. The

00:21:03--> 00:21:08

earth will then be commanded to produce its fruit and retrieve its blessings.

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

Laws messenger was also quoted as saying for seven years, Muslims will build fires with the bows and arrows of the garden the Magog

00:21:19--> 00:21:35

Prophet Jesus will remain on earth for 40 years, during which peace will reign and the earth will flourish. For seven years after his death, people remain at peace until the law sends a wind which will take the soul of every believer.

00:21:37--> 00:22:23

But just before the coming of this wind, the sun will rise from the west, a beast will be raised from the earth which will speak directly to humans. The Quran will be raised from books and from people's hearts, the law of Islam the Sharia will be totally abandoned, and smoke will engulf the earth. The last of these signs is a fire which originates in southern place in Yemen. This fire will hurt people from the east and the west, to their gathering grounds in Syria, constantly remaining with them until they reach their final destination. The prophet SAW Selim also described that those remaining after the wind takes the souls of the believers who will be the worst of humankind.

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

Nowhere on the earth with anyone say a law, a law

00:22:28--> 00:22:36

and those that remain these evil individuals will copulate in public like donkeys, and it is on them that the last hour would come

00:22:38--> 00:22:47

off his sword. The Almighty then identified the final events of this world saying, then the Trumpet will be blown.

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

The horn blower is whom

00:22:55--> 00:23:08

is Raphael? Yes, is Raphael is age the angel normally ascribed to blowing the horn. Actually, there are no clear Hadith which stated,

00:23:09--> 00:23:53

but it has been generally understood. You hear it in statements of the Sahaba and others. But there is no clear Hadith that says the prophets I said I'm said is strathfield blows the horn, but he does speak of it starfield in the group of the major angels. For example, prior to beginning his night prayer problems are seldom used to say alohomora by jabril or McHale is Raphael Fatima sumati will have the allemaal Rabia Shahada antetokounmpo Bina evatik FEMA can houfy here telefoon De Lima to leafa fi meenal hoc B is nica in Nakata de Manta Sha, e la serata muster p m.

00:23:54--> 00:24:20

O Allah, Lord of Gabriel, and Michael, and his Seraphin, Creator of the heavens and the earth, nor of the seen and the unseen, you alone judge between your servants in what they differ, so guide me in what of the truth is disputed by your permission. Indeed, you guide whomever you wish to the straight path before doing tahajud he used to make this law.

00:24:22--> 00:24:49

So there are these three noble angels each given the responsibility for life. Gabriel is responsible for what provides life to the hearts, which is revelation. Michael is responsible for rain containing life for the plants, and it's our field is responsible for people's life. At the time of resurrection, the blowing of the horn.

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

Prophet Mohammed Salim was quoted by Woodside as saying,

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

How can I enjoy when the Hornblower

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

Put the horn to his mouth, inclined his forehead backwards and turned his ear listening for the command to blow

00:25:09--> 00:25:19

1400 years ago, Prophet Muhammad wa sallam described his starfield as putting the horn to his lips, the trumpet

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

inclining his head backwards,

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

turning his head slightly to listen for a loss command to blow.

00:25:31--> 00:25:48

In Surah xmr verse 68 a law says there are no sewer for psychic among semi washy women fill out a lemon sha Allah, some menoufia Coffee okra for either whom tr Mui young rune

00:25:50--> 00:26:09

and the horn will be blown and all in the heavens and all on earth will faint except whom Allah wills, then it will be blown a second time and behold, they will all be standing staring. As soon as Omar verse 68, the horn is blown, twice.

00:26:10--> 00:26:57

The first blowing is the blowing of shock and terror, in which people are stunned and those whom Allah wills will go unconscious. The second blowing is the blowing of resurrection, in which people rise from their graves. And along Hades narrated by Abdullayev and Amara Raja Sallam was quoted as saying, when the horn will be blown, and no one would hear that, but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side. And the first one to hear the horn will be a person busy setting right a tank meant to provide water for camels, he would soon and the other people would also soon then allow will send rain, which would be like do and people's bodies would grow from it,

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

then the horn would be blown and they would stand up staring.

00:27:02--> 00:27:36

So the first time the horn is blown, the shock all over the earth, people faint loss creatures faint. And at this point, rain comes heavy rain over the earth. And that rain then begins is like a catalyst for the body parts of all who died to come together in the earth. It's reformed and then the second blowing and then they come out of their graves. So in this surah here when the law says when you flick off his sword

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

This is in reference to which blowing

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

then the trumpet would be blown the first or the second.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

The second

00:27:55--> 00:28:00

the first. Well if we look at what was said after it said

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

one of you have a sore

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

and immediately after that

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

for Gemma, now whom Gemma.

00:28:18--> 00:28:19

So

00:28:21--> 00:28:23

Allah says using this file

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

for Gemma Anna whom fine Arabic indicates

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

soon thereafter.

00:28:33--> 00:29:09

So if soon thereafter, they are gathered, we know that the gathering of the dead This is immediately after resurrection. So it implies then that that blowing front of your coffee sore, one of your professor, this was in fact, the second blowing. And a lot doesn't mention the first belong here because of the fact that what he is describing after it are the circumstances of resurrection. That's what the focus of the verses are on problems that Solomon said between the two blowing of the trumpet, there will be an interval of 40.

00:29:10--> 00:29:21

Now, Abu huraira narrated it was asked does this mean 40 days or 40 months or 40 years he said I don't know. Salim said between them is 40.

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

Now if you note in the verse,

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

Allah said there, that

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

all will fall unconscious,

00:29:36--> 00:29:41

except in Lamin sha Allah except for those who allow wills.

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

So scholars in looking at that.

00:29:46--> 00:29:52

Try to determine or identify who would not fall unconscious when the horn is blown.

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

Some scholars said it was the angels they wouldn't even have them. For example, He said the angels wouldn't

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Because there are spiritual beings without souls who do not die according to him.

00:30:07--> 00:30:13

But this claim is questionable, that the angels don't die because

00:30:14--> 00:30:16

they are among the last creation.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

And in the same way life was given to them.

00:30:20--> 00:30:37

They life can be taken for them from them. Furthermore, it is authentically reported from the province of Solomon and not that a number from by a number of companions that he said, Indeed, when a law speaks revelation, the angels are overcome by something like fainting.

00:30:39--> 00:30:46

So they go unconscious is described when they receive revelation. So if that can happen, then

00:30:47--> 00:30:53

surely, with the blowing of the trumpet, they could also go unconscious

00:30:57--> 00:31:00

mccarten and others held that the exception made was for gibreel.

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

McHale and his rafeal and the angel of death.

00:31:07--> 00:31:11

Others included also the bearers of a law thrown thrown bears.

00:31:13--> 00:31:20

However, the Hadees, which they use to support this are not authentic. So it's just speculation.

00:31:21--> 00:31:29

And I'm admittedly humble he was of the opinion that the damsels in the use of Paradise, they wouldn't be included.

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

And they've been Tamia, he had said, As for those whom an exception will be made, it will it includes the damages of Paradise,

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

because paradise has no definite

00:31:43--> 00:31:50

that is a no deduction because you enter Paradise is not dying. So that was the conclusion.

00:31:52--> 00:31:56

Again, it's speculation, you know, sounds kind of reasonable, has some support.

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

I will abandon core to be

00:32:02--> 00:32:15

not the scholar unquote, to be who did the Tafseer that we're using, and Jamia camel Quran, but he did another word called and move him

00:32:16--> 00:32:30

Illa Sha Muslim he did a condensed version of Sahih Muslim condensed it into one text anyway he favored the opinion that those intended are all the dead

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

they're already dead and alive says liars una fi hell Mota lol Mota Tallulah, they will only taste in it the first death. So once you die, there's no dying a second time. Right. So he that was his conclusion as to why it was them.

00:32:54--> 00:33:16

I have no claim mentioned that the scholars are different regarding the deaths of the souls of the time of the blowing of the horn. He favored the opinion that the death of the soul is its separation from the body and refuted the opinion of those who held that the souls disappear because the texts indicate that the souls remain in the state of the bodies in punishment or pleasure until resurrection.

00:33:18--> 00:33:58

If falling unconscious is interpreted as fainting, souls will go unconscious, and will not be among those for whom an exception will be made for human beings can faint as a result of what they see or hear, as in the case of Moses, when he saw the mountain crumble to dust, Allah said, and Moses fell down unconscious, that the dead will experience fainting is clearly stated in the following narration in which Abu huraira quoted as saying, Do not favor me over Moses, for people will faint. And I will be the first to regain consciousness

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

only to find Moses holding on to a side of the throne.

00:34:05--> 00:34:13

I don't know whether he was among those who fell unconscious and regained consciousness before me, or whether he was among those who Milan made an exception for

00:34:16--> 00:34:18

some problems, I sell them, saying

00:34:20--> 00:34:20

that

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

he will himself go unconscious.

00:34:25--> 00:34:39

And obviously he's dead. It's his soul which will go into that state of unconsciousness. So the SOC or the the shock, which puts people into a state of unconsciousness will affect everybody, including the dead.

00:34:41--> 00:34:45

According to the author of a test, Kira, he said,

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

quoting his teacher will abass what is correct is that no authentic narration has come identifying those for whom the exception will be made. That's all opinions.

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

possible,

00:35:02--> 00:35:29

even taymiyah and his much more on fatawa said, if the Prophet did not inform salatu salam about all for whom an exception would be made, it is not possible for us to be certain about it. This then becomes like knowledge about the light the time of the last hour, all the individual profits, etc, which Allah has not informed about. And this knowledge can only be obtained by revelation, and Allah knows best.

00:35:33--> 00:35:49

And it's narrated that the brother saw Simon said, if the signs of the beginning of the Day of Resurrection appear, and one of you has a seedling in his hand, he should plant it, if he's able to do so, before the resurrection begins.

00:35:50--> 00:35:54

So, if the major signs begin starting,

00:35:56--> 00:36:31

whether it catches you in the form of the wind, as you see people dying around you, from the wind, and you have a seedling to plant, you should plant it meaning you don't you know, because signs may appear that the end is coming, you don't just give up everything then and you know just go into a state of whatever shock No, whatever good deed you had begun that you which is the value etc You should complete it you should continue to do it until you are taken. And actually in this hadith

00:36:33--> 00:36:54

is you know, concern for the environment. Because the seedling, this is a baby plant which would grow up ultimately into a bigger plant. That the issue of planting you know something which deprives us alum gave importance to any also forbade in the time of jihad, the destruction of crops and plants etc.

00:37:02--> 00:37:20

For Giovanna home Gemma, the mighty, mighty statement and then I will collect all of them together refers to the gathering of the resurrected dead for the judgment after the second blowing of the horn. This gathering is called an Arabic.

00:37:24--> 00:37:45

Mr. Marsh Masha is the place hasher is the act. Right, Harsha. This is the gathering, the earth will be flattened into a single plane devoid of any mountains or lowlands. And people will be assembled in groups according to what they worshiped in this life.

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

Sign live inside reported that allows messenger and said

00:37:52--> 00:38:03

people will be assembled on the Day of Resurrection on a white plane with a reddish tinge, like a flat loaf of white bread without markings for anyone.

00:38:04--> 00:38:26

Abu huraira quoted above Salim is saying on the Day of Resurrection, people will be gathered and he will order them to follow what they used to worship. So some of them will follow the sun. Some will follow the moon and some will follow other false gods and only this nation will be left with its hypocrites.

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

Now this gathering, the hasher which is referred to

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

the text of the Quran,

00:38:35--> 00:38:43

indicate that it includes everybody. Angels, gins, human beings, even animals.

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

A law says

00:38:46--> 00:38:53

where mom and dad button fell out of the law eating to be gentle Hey, Allah, oh my man, I'm sorry.

00:38:54--> 00:39:18

My forgotten I feel kitabi Ming che sama Illa be him your Sharon. There is not a single living creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with two wings. Except there are communities like you. I have not neglected anything in the book, then to their Lord, they all will be gathered. That implies all creatures.

00:39:20--> 00:39:47

And we find in sewer attack. We're Of course, Chapter 81 verse five. Well, we'll hold your Hershey rot, and when the wild animals will be gathered, the rubber sauce Salam also spoke about retaliation for animals. He said, you will all return rights to their owners on the Day of Resurrection, until retaliation will be given to the hornless Ram from the horn Ram.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

So even the ram on hornless the ram with the horn which defeated or butted the hornless Ram off the mountain side alone will bring them back together.

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

The one without the horn will know, but the one with the horns off the mountainside. This is the completeness of our laws, justice, that nothing would escape.

00:40:14--> 00:40:18

And this implies, of course, the gathering even of animals.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

And that gathering

00:40:21--> 00:40:46

is one in which people will be naked. I should report that you heard the promises I'll send them say, people will be assembled on the day of resurrected resurrection barefooted naked and uncircumcised. I asked the laws messenger or messenger of Allah, will males and females be together on that day looking at each other? He replied, or Ayesha, the matter will be too serious for them to look at each other.

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

The first to be closed.

00:40:54--> 00:41:24

Allows messenger on one occasion stood up giving a sermon and said, Oh people, Allah will assemble you barefooted naked and uncircumcised. Then you repeated the words of the Quran. Come up with that now, what the hell can you do who Why then Elena? As I created you the first time I will repeat it, I promise binding on myself. And the first person who will be closed on the Day of Resurrection will be

00:41:27--> 00:41:30

Prophet Abraham Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:41:32--> 00:41:36

scholars who have different opinions as to why Prophet Abraham would be closed first.

00:41:38--> 00:42:02

Some suggested it was because he feared a lot more than anyone. So closing him was hasten to put his heart addressed. This suggestion is possible, as it is narrated that he was the first to wear pants under his clothing, while praying in order to ensure complete covering of his private parts, and to ensure that his privates would not touch the place of prayer.

00:42:03--> 00:42:07

So he was rewarded by being the first to be covered on the Day of Resurrection.

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

This is suggestion.

00:42:10--> 00:42:26

It is also possible that those who threw them into the fire when they were throwing them into the fire, they stripped off his clothes to throw him in the fire was the common practice people going to be thrown in the fire they take off their clothes and throw them in. So as he was exposed before the people in this life,

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

then Allah covered him before the people before everybody else.

00:42:33--> 00:42:34

And according to

00:42:35--> 00:42:38

mom and close to me, he felt this was the best explanation.

00:42:39--> 00:43:04

Some authentic texts state that people will be resurrected in clothing in which they die. For example, I will say that Audrey on his deathbed, called for new clothes, and put them on and then said I heard a lot of messengers say indeed the dead will be resurrected in the clothes in which they die. And they'll Mater you got Sofia V, Allah t mo tufa.

00:43:05--> 00:43:26

Manuel, they have a resolve the apparent conflict between this narration and the previous narrations which affirm naked resurrection from three perspectives. The first, the clothes will disintegrate after they stand up from their graves. So they will be naked at the place of assembly, then they will be closed in the clothes of paradise.

00:43:27--> 00:43:36

Second, when the profits, they're truly right righteous, then those following them according to their ranks are closed.

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

Each person will wear clothes like those

00:43:41--> 00:43:42

in which they died.

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

Then when they enter Paradise, they will wear clothes of paradise.

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

Third explanation, the meaning of clothes here refers to deeds.

00:43:55--> 00:44:08

That statement, indeed, the data will be resurrected in the clause in which they die. This clause here refers to deeds. Now somebody may say this is you know, interpretation This is like that we'll

00:44:09--> 00:44:22

write Why go from the obvious meaning closed, meaning close to deeds. Why? Because the law said and sorting out offers 26 Willie bass with taqwa Delica higher

00:44:23--> 00:44:37

the closing of piety is better. So our law has used the term closing to refer to piety. So it becomes a legitimate explanation for its use in this one also.

00:44:38--> 00:44:54

And also we have another narration from the browser salon which is authentic from it's a Muslim in which you said you by fuku avidin. Allah Mamata LA. Every slave will be resurrected doing whatever deeds he died. Doing.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Every slave will be resurrected, doing whatever

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

deeds he died doing.

00:45:03--> 00:45:14

So there is support from the text of the Sunnah to indicate that this could refer to deeds as opposed to actual clothing.

00:45:20--> 00:45:45

We also have a narration from midnight bass in which he said while a man was standing at alpha, he fell from his horse and they trampled him. bosasa lamb said, bathed him with water and lotus leaves, shroud him in his two garments, and do not put perfume on him, nor cover his head, for he will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection, reciting the tale via

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

doing the deeds

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

on which he died.

00:45:53--> 00:46:04

It should not be understood that the person will be resurrected in the clothing in which he was shrouded, or in which he died. He's resurrected in the state of his faith, or disbelief,

00:46:05--> 00:46:28

his certainty or doubt, in which he died and doing the deeds he was doing at the time of his death. This is indicated by the following narration of the live in armor, which is related to the prophet SAW Selim said, If Allah wishes to punish the people, the punishment will strike whoever is among them, and they will be resurrected according to their deeds.

00:46:31--> 00:46:38

In verse 100, the law goes on to say well, I don't deny Johanna yo Ma, even little cafe de nada.

00:46:39--> 00:47:20

On that day, I will display hell before the disbelievers in plain view of the night Johanna myoma. Catherine Alba. On that day, our display held before the disbelievers in plain view, means that a law will shock those resurrected with a full display of the ferocity of hell. A creature so terrible and wild that the law has assigned billions of angels to restrain it of the live and most Earth quarters above so I'll send them a saying hello will be brought on that day having 70,000 reigns with 70,000 angels drawing each rain.

00:47:21--> 00:47:35

The disbelievers will also be displayed before the Hellfire as of the Almighty said or Yama, you or other lady in a car for an hour. And on the day when those who disbelieve will be exposed to the fire.

00:47:37--> 00:47:57

This is a part of the punishment that the disbelievers will face before the actual judgment. It is a form of psychological punishment in which they are terrified just to view hell. Part of the wisdom of a law informing humans about this incident is that it should motivate the believer to correct his relationship with his Lord.

00:47:58--> 00:48:11

He should fear this day and prepare for it by visualizing hell, as if it were under his feet. He should also realize that all that remains before meeting this day is for the soul to leave the body.

00:48:13--> 00:48:35

So on that day after the gathering, the Hellfire will be displayed, particularly to the disbelievers it will be a major shock for them. Seeing its reality, and we discussed this earlier about the nature of the hellfire. The Hellfire is actually a beast as a difference between

00:48:36--> 00:48:43

heaven and hell. By the way, a law describes the Hellfire as talking, breathing, you know,

00:48:44--> 00:48:55

he describes it as a beast as a creature, which he has created. And its ferocity will shock people when they see it.

00:48:56--> 00:49:07

And Allah describes through his province asylum, you know, various descriptions of hell and then some books which have been written on descriptions, you know, the characteristics of Hell, I mean, it's worth reading.

00:49:08--> 00:50:00

But in any case, it will be a part of the punishment, just as the punishment begins for the disbeliever from the time he dies, when he dies and goes into the body is in the grave. Professor Solomon said either the grave becomes a garden from the gardens of Paradise, or a pit from the pits of hell. So for the disbeliever, the grave will be a pit from hell. He'll be lying as if lying in hell. And wind from hell will be blowing over him the whole time until the actual resurrection. So the punishment begins from the time of death in the grave at the time of the resurrection, then he will face the hell Hellfire is brought before him a further element for the part of the punishment.

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

So his punishment will just increase in intensity to the finally he's actually thrown in hell

00:50:08--> 00:50:09

first 101

00:50:13--> 00:50:45

Alevtina cannot Are you know whom fear Ito in decree will can will is talk to your owner Samar. Those whose eyes were veiled from my reminder and who were unable to hear it. Allah Dina Canada Unicom. Fear Hippo in the Cree. Allah describes some of the characteristics of the disbelievers who would be exposed to the Hellfire prior to the judgement. He said they're those whose eyes were veiled from my reminder.

00:50:47--> 00:50:50

They were blind to a lot of science in this world,

00:50:51--> 00:51:04

which are witnessed by those who reflect on they contemplate the divine science. It clears them to be a witness, or it leads them to be a witness to the uniqueness of the Creator and to praise him.

00:51:05--> 00:51:13

Or they're blind to the noble crime, and are unable to ponder over its meanings and benefits from its lessons and wisdom.

00:51:14--> 00:51:27

After describing their blindness relative to the creational evidences and the revealed proofs, allow shifted to their deafness to the truth saying, Well, khanewal is to Tirana, Samar.

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

And those who are unable to hear it.

00:51:31--> 00:51:55

The deafness is emphasized by referring to it as an inability to hear the truth in the laws words, and that of His Messenger had a law referred to them as deaf, it would have been less emphatic, because a deaf person may hear a very loud sound close to his or her ear. On the other hand, these disbelievers are described as completely unable to hear anything.

00:51:57--> 00:52:28

This portion of the verse could also be translated as and those who cannot bear to hear it, meaning they do not wish to hear it. So Allah gives here descriptions, you know, of those who would be exposed to the Hellfire as part of the punishment in which they are shocked. And the punishment continues to build step by step on them.

00:52:30--> 00:52:36

The main description is that they were blind to our laws, reminders,

00:52:38--> 00:52:54

reminders, he has left, either in his creation, the signs, if a person looks around himself and just reflects on the world around him, How can he possibly conclude that this world was a product of accident?

00:52:56--> 00:52:59

Now, this is a person who was closed his eyes

00:53:00--> 00:53:06

is blind, he can't see the obvious signs of creation.

00:53:10--> 00:53:13

Similarly, he can't hear

00:53:14--> 00:53:37

the signs which allows left in the form of the crime the message of the Quran itself, His ears are sealed, actually into Al Baqarah. When Allah describes this believers, he describes them as Hotham, Allah, Allah columbium their hearts are sealed while I am hearing while I'm sorry him and their sight, Polish our is a veil over it.

00:53:38--> 00:53:46

That all of their senses the means by which they will be able to accept the truth are sealed.

00:53:47--> 00:53:54

Allah describes it as his ceiling. But in fact, they are the ones who seal it.

00:53:55--> 00:53:59

He has permitted it to be sealed, so he calls it his ceiling.

00:54:01--> 00:54:14

But they are the ones who do it. They're the ones by turning away consistently from the signs which are large shows them that their hearts become darker, the eyes become more blind, the air has become more deaf.

00:54:16--> 00:54:20

So these are the characteristics of the disbelievers. And Allah tells us that

00:54:21--> 00:54:42

as advice in dour also, when we're trying to explain Islam to others, if you come across those who obviously they can't see, they can't hear. They can't feel it's clear. Then go on to somebody else. Don't keep banging your head against the wall.

00:54:43--> 00:54:57

You know your head is gonna break not the wall. So, back off if you see they're not listening, because there are some people like that. You can't guide you know who you wish as above so someone was unable to guide his own father, his own

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

uncle. I will tell him

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

He couldn't guide him as much as enough to he wanted to. So we have to know where to stop to divert our energies elsewhere so that we don't become disheartened and in our energies are wasted.

00:55:20--> 00:55:30

We'll stop here. And shall if you have any questions and what we have covered. Basically, we finished off the story of little Cornyn

00:55:31--> 00:55:44

where he describes what is going to happen to this wall that he built, it will be broken down as one of the signs and major signs of the last hour, the 10 major science. And

00:55:46--> 00:55:56

I mentioned a variety of studies which describe what happens in the time of the garden the Magog who said it would occur towards the end of whose era

00:56:01--> 00:56:24

of the job not at the end of he says, period he is he says period is 40 years, his begins from the end of the rule of the job. So it is towards the end of that period. And that properties, I will be unable to defeat them and a lot tells him that don't even bother to try. They're undefeatable.

00:56:26--> 00:56:31

So, no matter how powerful one may be, being a prophet of Allah,

00:56:33--> 00:57:01

Allah does not give because of course he could have given Prophet he said the means to kill the garden, the Maycock as he gave him the means the ability to kill the job, and the jail would have been a very powerful foe. You know, if you read about what the jail is able to do, then is a very formidable foe. But Allah gave Prophet Isa the ability to kill him, but in a formation,

00:57:02--> 00:57:04

that only he

00:57:07--> 00:57:34

can defeat everything. He doesn't allow Prophet Isa, the ability to defeat the garden, the Maycock is just a part of his science. So people may or may not become deluded, even in that time, because if Prophet Isa, maybe he wiped out the garden than a god, maybe people would start worshipping him again. You know, just to make it clear to people, he is fallible, you cannot do everything and anything.

00:57:35--> 00:57:37

It was Allah who destroys them through

00:57:39--> 00:57:51

worms, something simple, small, you know, after the defeating, they're so powerful and the powerful things can defeat them something so simple and small as a worm, working its way into his head, getting him

00:57:52--> 00:57:53

there killing them.

00:57:55--> 00:57:55

And

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

Allah then goes on after a

00:58:01--> 00:58:17

little Kernan finishes his description, praising a law for what he had built. He then goes on to describe some of the signs that would happen, the blowing of the horn, and the resurrection and gathering.

00:58:19--> 00:59:02

And of course, you know, elsewhere in the Quran, it goes into much greater detail as to other elements. And as we mentioned before, you find a lot of describing certain incidents either of the past, in the lives of the profits, etc, history of the world, or in the future, things that would happen would take place. He describes and repeats their descriptions in different parts of the crime, but each time he describes them, he describes them in different contexts, he brings out certain aspects of their history or their story, which is relevant to whatever point or lesson he is

00:59:03--> 00:59:05

focusing on or giving at the time.

00:59:06--> 00:59:09

So if you have any questions, please.

00:59:17--> 00:59:24

While the assembly plays here, implied here would be the assembly place of their dying the last people of the earth dying,

00:59:26--> 00:59:35

because the masher is only after you have died and been resurrected, so that would be contradictory to say that's where it was being they're being driven to.

00:59:55--> 00:59:58

So that what happens every day

01:00:03--> 01:00:06

Well, again, brothers question,

01:00:08--> 01:00:13

the reference, the prompts are suddenly made in his own time that the hole has appeared in the wall.

01:00:15--> 01:00:29

Whether this hole was then later plugged up part of that same process where the people are trying to make hold through it, and each time it's being plugged back up again, and they're doing it as being plugged back up a continual process. Was that the case? Or did that hole remain?

01:00:30--> 01:00:34

Allah knows best, but it would imply It would seem that it was closed up

01:00:37--> 01:00:49

based on a lot of the things that we talked about as to the science of the Day of Judgment, and it will be almost the future.

01:00:50--> 01:00:51

But what then what we know,

01:00:52--> 01:00:55

we know, where do you think we are?

01:00:59--> 01:01:12

by this question, which people commonly ask, you know, where are we relative to all of these signs, you know, of the 10 major signs? Has any of them occurred in our time?

01:01:13--> 01:01:56

No, some people try to claim an F have claimed in the past, the different ones of them happened, but they haven't. Usually people try to reinterpret, you know, so, the goggan the May God, you know, become something else. Right? There are no no longer people, as Sam described them, no dead jaal, you know, is, is the television is blind, it's just one big guy, right? Looking at you, you know, if people have all kinds of, you know, interpretations to try to apply it in our times, and, you know, make people feel okay, the day of judgement is around the corner. Well, it is around the corner, Rosa Selim did say that, you know, that, you know, between my two fingers, that's what that's the

01:01:56--> 01:02:31

space of time that remains, you know, between his time and the Day of Judgment, so, and that was 1400 years ago. So we know it's close, but close relative to what, exactly we don't know. And this knowledge is hidden from us. In terms of minus signs. Yeah, there are a number of minor signs we know have taken place, because I sell them in the famous adage of jabril and described amongst the signs that the barefoot, you know, Arabs desert Arabs, Bedouins would compete in the building of tall buildings. We know that's happened. You know, we're living it right.

01:02:32--> 01:02:34

He also described

01:02:36--> 01:02:52

that a man's songs would speak to him. They have, I saw an advertisement for, you know, Nike or Adidas shoes, which actually will, when you walk, it will say things tell you how far you've gone and this kind of stuff. I mean, that's something

01:02:54--> 01:03:01

unimaginable years ago, your shoes gonna talk to you. and a variety of other

01:03:02--> 01:03:15

minor issues of the process. I'm spoke about, you know, we know that they have taken place, and will continue to take place, but none of the major signs have happened so far.

01:03:23--> 01:03:31

Yeah, actually, the person that said that once they start, they will come like pearls dropping off of a necklace.

01:03:33--> 01:03:34

Question?

01:03:36--> 01:03:39

How is the estimation of time going to be in the future?

01:03:41--> 01:03:52

Well, as we said, we don't know what technology will be around at that time. I really can't speak of it. We know we have the technology now to estimate the time and that's enough.

01:03:56--> 01:03:59

technology doesn't stop it tends to continue to go forward.

01:04:01--> 01:04:30

In terms of question, resurrection, a person's resurrection, is resurrected, doing some evil deeds. Does that person at the time of resurrection realize it? Of course. I mean, of course, that person will realize they will be ashamed. This is part of the shaming of those involved in sin. They will be exposed resurrection in the commitment of some major sins which they will be visible to people around them.

01:04:31--> 01:04:33

question concerning

01:04:35--> 01:04:36

the Hellfire

01:04:37--> 01:04:44

and people being exposed to it whether that will be at the time of assembly? Yes, that's what we said. You know,

01:04:45--> 01:04:59

based on the Quranic text, it speaks of the the display of the Hellfire after the gathering. So it would be in that same period. Another question Who is the Maddie Of course. That's a big

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

In and of itself, but enough to say that he will be a leader among Muslims who will appear,

01:05:07--> 01:05:15

who is blessed by a law in that he is rightly guided, and people will gather around him

01:05:16--> 01:05:34

in a struggle against the forces of falsehood in the earth, you know, he would become like the Khalifa for Muslims, the believers, and it is during his reign, that the JAL will appear

01:05:36--> 01:05:59

and above us and described him as being from his descendants, you know, being from that the same line and gave some physical descriptions about him having a broad forehead and some other the physical descriptions, but he is among the righteous rulers of Muslims, the last among them, followed by Prophet Isa

01:06:02--> 01:06:23

question concerning the holes in the wall, how are the holes made? Are they using, you know, drills? Or are they using jackhammers or? Well, we can't get into it? We don't you know, we don't know. We don't have the knowledge. You know, that would just be speculation, really. But we know that they're digging holes, however, by whatever means they use

01:06:25--> 01:06:27

further question.

01:06:30--> 01:06:32

No, okay. We do have some

01:06:33--> 01:06:37

videos vcds that is one called

01:06:38--> 01:07:21

from darkness into light, which is very good for Dawa, to give to non Muslims. It's about people in the UK who accepted Islam, and are different people, you know, so it's very good. It's nicely done. It was done, I think, through the BBC, or something like this with very good presentation of Islam in the UK. And the other one is called choosing Islam. And this one is in the US, people who accepted Islam in the US, both of them are very good for us at giving to non Muslims. So if you'd like to get a copy afterwards, you can see 10 results for

01:07:22--> 01:07:25

from darkness and choosing Islam is 15.

01:07:27--> 01:07:33

The other thing that I'd like to mention, no, where's Where are we in the Tommy shirt?

01:07:34--> 01:07:37

Okay, anyway, we'll talk about it next week, what the plan is.

01:07:39--> 01:08:00

I've asked some people to to go over the notes for the class so we can try to compile it into text. So those who would like to do an examination on it, you know, to be possible and those who just like to have it to be able to go over it. Some of you joined at various times. You know,

01:08:01--> 01:08:21

ciao challah, you can benefit from the whole text. But there is a plan which I'd like to present to you which will maybe present the next class in more detail in a whereby this course and other courses like it in the future, will do it for university credits towards a degree in Islamic Studies.

01:08:22--> 01:08:28

accredited hopefully, inshallah, and I will discuss it more next class in sha Allah

01:08:29--> 01:08:34

Subhana Allah hombre humbucker in the shadow Allah, Allah Allah and stop fluka on a tabula
