Bradley is somebody with a silly MD.
My brothers, my sisters said Mr Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I hope that you are all well, in short, a lot of data. It's Friday night once again, sorry, you're on Monday, and you're getting a view.
It's Friday night, once again, Candela. And we're gonna get you with solar To recap, we started off last week. And we're going to continue with that. However, before we get into that, you know, a few things that are very interesting that have happened this week. First of all, brother yes, it does was returned to
I know that his family has been, you know, working tirelessly
to try to return to Canada from Egypt, where he was being held without any charges.
And they'll have good luck. You know, just some good news to hear that someone from the community of Oakville
Muslim Canadian is returned has returned to their family here and it's always a pleasure to
family is reunited and also you know, things go smoothly.
Despite taking a very very long time, very long time. And a lot of time with Allah knows best what the details are in the details. But it was just a you know, something that is very positive and very good to see happening throughout the week. We also
I personally experienced, you know, some good things this week, but we'll keep that for now. We'll jump right into our HELOC on Shaw said we're going to be covering versus number nine until the end of verse number 19 in sha Allah.
calf, okay. And again, reminder typically on Fridays, we are encouraged to recite, so let's write
sister Simon, you say that the voice is cutting out a lot. Let me just open the door. And maybe that will strengthen the internet connection.
I mean, it shouldn't really make much of a difference. But
hopefully, it works better. The downside to it is that my office is very hot now. Because the air conditioning is going to escape
from my office door. The other downside to it is you might see some flooding is entering into my office. So we'll try and finish up before the volunteers come in for buffeting to open up the doors
just come along later on sister assignment for letting us know
oh it still says Friday a clip but you're absolutely righteous on como la Faden usually correct two things and one of the things that are usually correct is captions and I forgot to do that.
Okay, so now let's get into verse number nine.
What's the kind of with Allah says in verse number 910 and 12 rubine Amina ship on you Margie Bismillah you marshman
m hassy beta and
then you can see what will be me can mean Tina
it will fit ear to ear FIFA.
Tina me let
me know watch.
Football Nabina Rana
leaner lemma is benei Salima levy nebby
loss of data here is showing us in these verses.
He says M has EBITDA. So he's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says do you think you think oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in a Tina agita. Do you think oh Mohammed? He was the people of Africa have a theme or a wonder among our signs.
So we find the last panel with Allah asking them this question basically drawing his attention to the story of the people of the cave.
So he says
and a repeat what are El Cap and what is what is El Cap and what is a working
so you guys let me know on youtube I know the internet today for some reason is not working well because joumana was really really bad. But let me know if on YouTube and Facebook you are hearing and seeing properly inshallah.
So the cows as a loss of hanway form a beam, of conifers to a cave in the mountains
with where these young men actually took refuge, and of watin just to make it easy for us is the valley, okay? alfalfa is a cave in the valley of a rock, the so it's very easy to understand it that way. A calf is the cave in valley of
so lots of hand which is if I was at FIFA, Montana, Tina
in a marina wash.
I must have had to remember when the young men fled for refuge to El Cap to the cave. Okay, so remember the story of Muhammad? Ali was some of those men, the ones who fled to the cave, right? Remember that story?
Now, the question here is why did they need to cave what was the purpose of them going to the cave and fleeing to the cave?
For the sake of awesome panel What? Okay, fearing persecution for their religion for their belief in.
So that's why I was a pen when I was bringing up this story. And he's reminding us of it and reminding us of the struggles of these men, you know, who lived at this time where he was, and we'll see the details very shortly.
I was taught when I used to record in studio in Malaysia never, ever move. If an if a fly comes and lands on you just this fly just won't leave me alone. The door is open, he can help but he just won't see his landing on me and everything.
And this is one of the signs of a loss of Hannah voids and I'm not in trouble.
And I'd love some handle with and as putting that there to test us. Right.
So a lot tells us about these young men who fled from their people for the sake of their religion, they were fleeing from this persecution. And so they fled taking refuge in a cave, right in the cave of the valley and within the Valley of a beam.
And so they went there in mountain where they hid from their people, okay, and they entered the cave and asked the lesson panel agenda to show mercy and kindness towards them. Okay to show mercy and kindness towards them.
Then apparently data says about bene
So Allah shows us that they asked for the mercy of a loss of data and that's really asking, Oh Allah, you know what, save us protect us from this hardship. This difficulty You know, this persecution of the people here in particular, and showered with blessings right? Oh, Ben attina Mila
Rama give us your blessings all along.
When I mean a marina Asha, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way. So make it easy for us to worship you make it easy for us to be upon what you are pleased with Allah and bless us with you know your blessings and of course, the blessings of Allah Subhana which Allah in terms of, you know, goodness from Allah, taking us away from this evil. So Allah says in verse number 11 football
teams can be seen in the muscle can
be covered up their hearing, right we covered up there
for a number of years and basically means that Alessandra Jana had caused them to go to sleep. So he wasn't asleep for a number of years. They went
from a bath and
then we raised them up.
Okay, as we woke them up from their slumber from their deep sleep from their hibernation, and one of them from amongst the men who were there and we'll get into more details of it very shortly also can with that is giving us an overview and then he goes into detail, okay?
And so he's, he's mentioning you know, they enter into this game there's they're fleeing from
persecution, they're asking for the blessings of a law to take them away from this hardship and
That he caused them to seek to sleep for Bob neither
of us can with Alice's for Bob now other than Him McAfee seen in added that he caused them to, you know, sleep and they can't hear anything and so on something that is now home and then he raised them up from their sleep. And he caused one of them to come out. So from amongst the group that was one of them that went out and he took with him some of his dyrham right, his silver coins to go into buy some food and when we wake up in the morning, sometimes the very first thing we do is
very first thing that we do in the morning is usually want to eat right that's why we have breakfast in the morning. And so he woke up from this deep sleep and he was hungry he wanted to eat. So he went with some of his go home to buy some food. And then Allah subhanho wa jal know says he raised them Lena veiny saw Lima levy through amudha we raised them up, that we might test which one of these two parties as some of some of the men were, you know, debating as to how long they were in the cave and the debate with the others that were in the cave, right? So which of the two parties is right? was best at calculating the time that they were there within this cave? Then awesome handle?
hopefully the internet is good for you on YouTube and Facebook in sha Allah. Then in verse number 13, now
be on a beam was he didn't
be him is on what
do you what
do you do he
to narrate a
famine of pneumonia
or the war?
What easier isn't
met he will you hate
me for a loss of pen which is in verses number 13 to 16. He begins by saying,
We narrate unto you their story with truth. So Allah is telling the story to us, right? We hear it in the Quran. And we know that whatever is within the truth, and nothing of it is false or fake or untrue or from someone else it is from a lesser panel what we narrate to you the story with truth. Truly, they were young men who believed in the Lord. These were men who believed in Allah subhana wa Tada. And we increase them in guidance. And so from here, a loss of handle, which added begins to explain their story in a little bit more detail. So he states that these were young men, right, young
boys, young men.
And they were more accepting of the truth, of loss of habitat isn't the truth of worship and loss of handling want to add and what was true and more guide than the elders of their time, who had become very stubborn in their ways. And this is a key part of this story, a key part of the sooner that sometimes the younger generation understands that what our parents are on is not true, or what our older generation is upon is not true. A lot of the time that may have to do with culture, and and hamdulillah here in Canada, we actually experienced this and can you to experience it. I personally did because we are born and raised here, first of all, and so we don't really have a back home
culture. Those of us who were born here in Canada raised here in Canada, we don't have a back problem, culture per se. Of course, it depends on how much the parents instill that within children. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing. There are certain things from culture that is good and Islam encourages that. And there are certain things from culture that is not good.
In bed that may be disciplined to a loss of language. And of course, that's what's discouraged. And that's what takes us away from a loss of data.
And so there has to be a balance always, no one should criticize another culture and say, No, this is right, this is wrong. Or sorry, not necessarily say this is right or wrong. One should not criticize another culture and just write it all off as being wrong. There's always going to be pros, there's always going to be cons and of course, that's relevant to, we have to consider it being relevant to the time to the place that we live in as well. And so for example, you know, these young men there,
they know that the way is of their elders or their people is not right, not the way of a loss of can one want to add another way that we are meant to wish to live.
And so they flee from it. They go away from it and they seek the refuge they seek the help Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. And, and, like I said, we can see that some of our youth and even ourselves like myself, in particular, I consider myself someone who sort of stepped away from the culture, you might see me dressed this way. But I understand that this is something that I choose to do. I don't feel that this is an obligation of my religion to dress, you know, with this, this particular garment, I do feel that it's an obligation of our religion to dress modestly. I do that it's an obligation within our Deen to do everything in accordance to the deen and in in attempts to please
Allah subhanho wa Taala. But I do not think that we have to wear a lot of kameez, or we have to wear or we have to even wear a dopey right on our heads or hat on our heads today I'm wearing one because usually, Fridays are weird. And one of the reasons why I wear is, of course, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam usually would have his head covered, but he lived in the desert. And that's known why he would do that, especially in the desert. But
one of the reasons and I'll be totally honest with you, us as humans, we've been advised that we advise each other to constantly respect people's culture, you cannot get to the hearts of others if you're not going to respect their culture. And so one of the ways in respecting people's culture is that when you come to Mara, right, especially through the Juma prayer, you wear something on your head on your head, or hat or something on your head. Why? Because people will focus sometimes so much on the little things, right? They'll be like, Oh, he's not wearing it up on his head. He's, you know, not a good Muslim. And sadly, we're not supposed to live according to that, though, not
because we don't advise people, you know, what if you're getting sleep and where to eat, because, you know,
because you have to otherwise people won't listen to you know,
it because first of all, you're doing it to please Allah subhanho attentionally make sort of image to the public as well. And you're doing something for the sake of pleasing a lot of the prophets of Allah, he was telling us to generally cover his head, we see that many of the scholars have to cover their heads as well. A lot of them were not considered true scholars, and they would not consider their colleagues or even their students who'd be good students, if they were not going to do little things. And one of the little things was like covering their head.
So, you know, in trying to teach the deen to others, we have to we have to respect and understand other people's culture. Simple example. We had, you know, you know, a medic came for us of prayer. And he comes sometimes to the mustard in the last few days. We've seen him here. And he's not Muslim, but he joins in the prayer with us. He feels and he was saying, and he was telling us I was talking to him after the Salah, and he was saying, you know, he feels so much ease and peace in his heart when he's here in the masjid. And so how I feel like Wow, look at how much easy stealing. We have Muslims or
mustards opening the open now but we're praying the gym and it doesn't feel clean and it doesn't feel nice not
not read and doesn't give us that beautiful feel.
Who's coming and teaching us a lesson saying hey, don't listen. It's not about the image that
it's not about the nice red carpet.
You know, having the wood trim. It's not about having beautiful to worship Allah. He was saying he comes to the masjid
six or seven times a day on days when he feels down.
And he said just the other day he was here in the mustard
team and there was no one here. So he just sat outside and he says I learned some words like
so Panama will be handy among them. You know, he learned some of these words.
sometimes I sit outside of the mosque
was here and then he went home and within a half an hour he felt so like
So much stress of this world. He left he came right back to the masjid. Right. And that's a non Muslim us as Muslims, we come to the butter like, Oh, you know, why don't they clean this place, which will handle our mustard is clean in the sense that you know we have a company that sanitizes it every morning for us. But you know we're praying in the gym and it's meant for you know, it's not nice, doesn't look nice, doesn't feel good. So kind of look at us. We're Muslims. Right and here's a non Muslim who's coming in, you know what the feeling I get by being here in the mosque in the masjid is so peaceful, and I don't want to be anywhere else. And he's not Muslim yet. And he comes
to the mustard and he sits here. And he prayed with us, he prayed Also with us. You know, he stood in the back and he stood and he boughs even before we prayed, I was watching him he was sitting there and he was making to our heart to a lesser penalty.
us a lot of the time, we just complain. So here is a pattern, which is showing us that, you know, this younger generation amongst the people in suva in solitude, caffeine, the story of the people in the cave.
They felt that the ways of their of their forefathers, the older generation was not right, right. And they were being stubborn. And they were set in their ways. They didn't want to change and they want to change. And so they were things differently, but they knew they had to separate themselves from society. Most of those who responded who responded to the profits on the log, as well, were younger in age, right, they were younger, in age, it was very easy to spread Islam to youth. And this is why you'll notice, you know, our youth can easily be swayed away from Islam as well. Because in those young years, right, they're still they're still learning, they're still trying to figure
out the truth and still, you know, waiting for something to come their way that they can hold on to and if we as Muslims are not providing that properly as a platform for our youth to understand, then we're failing, we're failing and we're gonna start losing Muslims and we're seeing them go away already. But at hamdulillah we leave it up to a Muslim Hanwha Jana, he is the one who controls the hearts none of us control the heart. So we have to do our part. And to luckily Allah Allah Leave the rest to a loss of
a lot then says in the verses of surah, two cows and verse number
he says was the dinner Buddha, and we increased them in guidance, a loss of habitat, increase them in guidance. And so we should not feel sometimes when we see you know, our children, learning more about Islam and understanding more about Islam than we do, we shouldn't feel that I you know what, they just think they're smarter than us to be clever. Well, maybe they do understand, and the loss of hand with Allah can increase them in knowledge. And this is actually proof and this is the loss of Hanwha to Allah can increase a person's email and he can decrease that person's email as an email goes up and down. it fluctuates, right? It's like a wavelength an analogue wavelength, was he didn't
know who that was to handle data, increase them in guidance, so that went higher.
Allah then says,
Buddha, so it was mentioned that they were the followers of religion has been mentioned, traditionally, that they were the followers of the millennium, and almost of Hannibal, which had no
right many of the scholars have to see it have commented on this.
Yet, then it was a pan with Anna says, want
to be him is gone.
Gone out of bliss, Sena.
And we made their hearts firm and strong. When they stood up and said, Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and earth. Right. Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens in the earth. Allah subhana wa tada made them strong enough to say that and able and capable to actually voice themselves properly, in a manner that, you know, showed confidence within themselves within us as well within our children, we need to be confident. My wife always tells me all the time, she's like, you know, I doubt you should dress like this all the time. I'm like, yeah, that's okay. Whatever you don't like some sometimes I don't I don't prefer wearing a thong. I prefer wearing pants and shirt because it's just too flowy
and loose and blows in the wind and missing
out and about doing something or doing some work, then it's a little bit difficult to wear it you know, to wear something that's easier to move around. And so but she tells me she's like, No, you should wear it because you know that people show more respect to the Muslims, when they identify themselves differently.
You're visibly front than the right you hold yourself outside of the norm. That's not in a
or rebellious fashion. That's in a way owner and
as well as confidence
is happy with what a loss of
and happy with the way that they present themselves before a loss of
knowing that the people who recognize this person is different, but is that they stand for a loss of handle what to add
to their island. It's gone football rabona Rob
bell. So here on line is showing us
against their people, it
wasn't only their people,
bro of the earlier scholars have said that these were the sons of the kings and the leaders of Byzantium.
These were sons of nobility. These were people who came from families that were recognized within society, and each of them started to withdraw. Okay.
Each of them started to pull themselves away from
their people and their family and so on. And so one by one, they started to draw away from others. And the first one of them came to an area in a ship where there was a tree and there was some shade, and sat down. And then another one came, sat down. And then some time later on, came and sat down. And they started to speak and converse amongst themselves. None of them knew the others, but they were brought together by the one who instills faith within the arts. Right? And this is the poll, anytime you feel that you're stuck, don't worry alone, make it happen for us to find out. And we started this, you know, session mentioning
brother Yes, if it does, you know, return to his family Alhamdulillah. And look at that, you know, his, when he came out, there was a video of him, you know, dressing people that were there.
And he was saying Allah subhana wa
t are 51 years of your life and I enjoyed myself, I travel the world, and I've been to different places, and then have the love freedom, you know, many different ways. And for a year, or you know, over a year, almost two years, year and a half of being locked up of going through hardship of facing difficulty of not communicating with your family of not having food and not having showers and not having places to properly relieve yourself go to the bathroom, and privacy and so on a loss of bandwidth and it gives them that hardship.
that's a beautiful sign. Beautiful sign is this person that was given freedom again. And the thing he says isn't come to the law just like profit, you Allah His setup, you know, I I have so many years of goodness and a lot of hand with Anna took it away afterwards and gave me just a few years of hardship. Why should I complain? Like is the fatherless the near term is the blessings of
Allah to understand that and so we have lots of time with Adam mentioned you know, it's the one who instills within our hearts. We can sleep from our people or we can go to certain areas and feel lost and feel confused and think that there's no way out but a loss of Hannah Montana sends help. And the prophet SAW it he was sent them says souls are recruited. And this is a hadith in
recorded by the moment
where he mentions from the narrator's is that he shut off the Allah and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
souls are recruited
souls are like recruited soldiers. Okay, those that recognize one another will come together and those that do not recognize one another turn away from each other. So basically, you think of it like soldiers and an army guys okay, this I don't know this person, but I know I know that there's something in common, right? They're from the same side for example, the Canadian so they know each other, they recognize each other. It doesn't matter if they're from one is from Vancouver, Basil's from Nova Scotia, there's something similar between them, they know each other they come together that's just natural bonds, profits in the long run and even sometimes their souls are like recruited
short the soldiers. Those who recognize one another, come together and recognize each other, they will not write they will turn away from each other.
And so we see here that whenever we are in need of seeing a low we'll send someone or something our way. Okay, whenever we're in need of something I will send something
Or something our way. I say this, in all honesty, brothers and sisters, we see it all the time when, for example, a sister is going through a divorce or something or she's going through a, you know, an abusive marriage. And she leaves for the sake of a loss of bandwidth and maybe goes to a shelter, or doesn't know where to go. And then she eventually goes into a shelter and from the shelter somewhere else and somewhere else and somewhere else. Along the way, a loss of habitat sends help the planet also kind of without it, we just need to trust it. Trust that edit time a woman will look at her job, the mother of is married. And this is the time is the time of year that we think of the story
because it's coming up and people usually go to
people usually go to Makkah, and they will stand where the well of zones is, and they will go between Safa and Marwa and so on and so forth. And so we see in her story, you know, she is just walking in the desert with her husband, Ibrahim, and he has sent him and he reaches the MCO where he's going to leave her and you know, he just says okay, and he turns around and he starts walking and did
the command to do this. Right? Did he give you the commit?
Leave me in the middle of the desk?
And he said
And they submit it, they submit to her.
She didn't argue with it. She's like, You know what? I trust a lot.
believing blah will look after me, Allah will look after me.
I mean that she just sat down and did nothing. as well. A woman is showing us this lesson. People you know, say things about women, they're not able to do things as good as men get. This is a woman that
runs between the valleys of sufen Mandala. Clyde is up there.
In the distance, is there any water? Is there any people are there any birds that you see flying in the distance and then she comes down again, and she runs from Safa to moto and then climbs up again. She does this how many times seven times going back and looking for water?
Our mother, right the mother of mothers of the believers, right of
Of course from that comes Mohammed Salah through the lineage.
And so Timo brothers and sisters,
the importance of submitting to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes we don't understand why it is that we're going through what we're going through. And it's easier said than done. I completely agree. I completely understand. And I've gone through it myself. Every one of us has gone through times that are so difficult, and we don't understand why this is happening. And we wonder to ourselves, why is that happening? We ask people why is this happening? And we
dig to try and find reasons why it's happening.
We don't know until later on.
I wasn't mentioned this. But
on the first of July, which is basically two days ago.
Day before yesterday,
I was finally reunited with one of my friends that I met in new many, many years ago, my very first roommate in Medina. And a lot of people wonder like, okay, what's the big deal? Canada student going to a land that spoke Arabic that I had only visited once before when I was seven. And went to MIT. I didn't know a single word of Arabic. All I knew was a said Mr. alikum walaikum salam. And if someone asked How are you? Right? Or they say to
God, golly, God is saying, and you just say hamdulillah. Right. But I didn't know how to even ask how are you in Arabic. And so my first roommate, he you know, we studied in Medina together, he spoke French. He helped me out to LA he took me in for my interview and all that. Long story short, when he graduated 14 years ago, to that I had zero contact with him. I had no idea where he was. I didn't know what I knew he was back in his country. But you know, when people live in countries where there's no not much internet usage, they don't use social media as much as we do. And he's from Niger, an African country.
He comes from a village and there's like poverty, very, very simple lifestyle, simple, simple lifestyle. And so Pamela, just a few days ago, two days ago, you know, I had been sending him emails on his old address and there was an email exchange about three years ago and I didn't know about it. I didn't see the email
in my inbox,
You know, I ended up finding out about it years later, I kind of left for Finally, he sends me a message on my phone
on July 1, so I get up in the morning and I turn on my internet and I see that there's a message there from him. hamdulillah. Right. It's the plan of Allah subhanho wa Jalla just need to trust a lot and alone will make it happen. And you know, when I look back at it, I'm like, if I was in touch with him for all these years, I probably be like, okay,
no big deal.
Right. But the fact that I, my heart loves him, and long to, you know, speak to him. And he's one of the most sincere, most genuine people I ever met. He's probably one of the most, I could probably say he's the first person that I met, who was the first person I lived with other than other than family who came from another country, because I lived in boarding schools when I was younger.
So I had that experience when I was younger, but I never lived with anyone from another country, let alone another country. Right. So
he said, Pamela is probably one of the most sincere, genuine people as much as he lives in a very simple,
you know, kind of lifestyle. Now, he never asked me for $1, he never asked me for any money. And I've had hundreds, maybe even 1000s of people who, when I travel around the world's who know that we live in Canada, we come from Canada, they asked us for financial help, right? Because they're like, Oh, you make dollars and dollars are good. And so somehow this is one brother shift said Raj is graduate from the faculty of Hadith from the University of Medina. And he lives in this village now in Kenji, right in the southern about southeast part of Nigeria, just about 35 kilometers away from the border of Nigeria. And so, you know, this is someone who's so sincere and so genuine. And when
he reached out to me, I thought to myself, this is the plan of a lot of panic. A lot of wanted us to be away from each other for so many years, 14 years, 14 years, we didn't communicate with each other. And now a loss of hand was added, brought us back together. So we see here in this story, a lot brings the souls together, right. And so these men, they came together, and they adopted a particular location in their land for them to worship of balsa wood. And so they used to worship Allah there. And then their people found out about them, and told their king and their kings among them, he asked for them to explain to them or explain to him about their beliefs. So they told him
the truth and they called him to a loss of handling what to add on a button that will be his problem for call
center where it will lead Nether room in dooney. He
they said, you know, our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, never shall we call upon God other than him. So they made it clear to the king that we were shallow, we don't worship what you guys do, we don't do those those types of things. That's not our practice.
And then the last time the data says, look like you couldn't even shuffled off. If we did, we should indeed have uttered an enormity in disbelief as in this would be terrible, we would have just believed in a lot if we did anything other than what we do.
Allah subhanho wa Jalla says, These, our people have taken for worship God other than him. Right? So the men are saying to their king, our people have taken other than Allah in worship, they do not want in a pure form, why do they not bring for them.
then continues to say, from an Umbrella Movement,
then he who invents a lie against a loss of water, who does more wrong than the person who invented life against a law, they
believe in the loss of Hannibal with added
stripped of their clothing and stripped and whatever they had, and then he decided to give them some time to read
their statements and reconsider what they do.
And so he let them go for some
They managed to escape people and from the king, and from this persecution that they were about to face for the sake of their religion, for the sake of their religion, their belief and the profits, it was send them says, soon there will come a time when the best wealth any of you can have, will be.
Can you imagine this? Listen to this, we think we would be investing in like houses investing in certain things that people invest in nowadays, none of us are really investing in the process on the law.
Soon there will come a time when the best wealth, any of you can have will be sheep,
which he can follow to the tops of the mountains and places where rain falls as input to secluded areas,
fleeing for the sake of his religion from persecution. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there will come a time in the best world that we can have is animals that we can use to drink from, right to you know, you might have cows, you drink from the milk or goats and so on.
And then you have sheep and you eat from
the meat of the animals that you have. And they go and they graze the lens and the pastures, you know, that would be the best health that we have. Because that's survival. That's food, we need food to survive. We don't need anything else. We don't need luxury life, we need food to survive.
So these young men, they were determined to flee from their people. And Allah Subhana Allah decreed that for them, when you there, it doesn't move them one I will do in law.
And when you draw or when you flee from them, and that which they worship, except Allah, then seek refuge in the case that rule 11 caphyon, short local book,
he, Allah Subhana, Allah says that seek refuge in the cave, your gourd will open away for you from his mercy, this is what we're gonna see. We're gonna go we're gonna find this cave, we're gonna hide in there. And then we're going to ask a law to save us and protect us look at their state of desperation amongst us goes to a cave and asks a lot to save us in a cave, we usually go to a friend who's wealthy or we go to go to the bank and take some money and go do something with it, buy something or open a business or do something that may benefit us in the long run. Either they go to a cave, and they ask a while not we have nothing we ask you and they beg from a loss of cannabinoids
to help them and shower His mercy upon them.
He will conceal you from your people while you minimally commit faka and we'll make it easy for you to your affairs and that it will give you what it is that you need. So hibernation is important sometimes, right? Not only hibernation and skipping salah and prayers, but waking up for the prayers or seeking away from people time to reflect. And this is why you see the companies and businesses you know give their employees vacations to go Go away, come back fresh, go away and refresh yourself and come back stronger and better to continue to work and at the same thing in our Dean right some time to reflect time away from the hustle and the bustle. And usually for me, particularly that
would be Hutch, right? How I found hydrometer I find peace in it and comfort. Reset. My ear gets reset. And the stress that I've been under for the year goes away and I'm fresh and able to come back fully after Hajj. ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to give us Hajj 2021 I mean
let's not forget as well that our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also in a cave right? And he said Abu Bakar Yeah.
Oh Abu Bakar What do you think of two who have a law as their third? So when we think of the story of the people of the caves, think you know what these people what's wrong with them. They went to a cave ask a lot for help. Our Prophet and Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muhammad he himself was in the end he asked you Lohan
What do you think of the third one who's with us? Who's third one with us?
And also can with Allah says in the Quran? Illa
Allah German lady vena cava Yes. naini
So what was the pen with an issue was that even the profits on the longer it was selling was in the key with a worker. And the third one, there was the help of a loss of can which I had, right. Alan knows that they're there. Well, it's not physically there. But he is aware of their situation. So you feel that presence, like a lost knowledge of us here in the cave, is with us, alone will not abandon us alone, not leave us alone. And it's not to say that a loss of habitat is there. Not at all. This is not it. It's not what it means a law is not here on Earth. But he knows what's happening everywhere. He knows what we can see within us. He knows how much ink is hiding inside of
this pen. He knows how many years I left on my head, he knows what time it is, without me looking at my watch. A loss of habitat knows these things and things that happen on earth things that we know of and things we don't know if Allah has been making your heartbeat right now. And we haven't even been paying attention to it. Allah has been making us breathe right now. And we haven't been.
We don't take the sound waves in the air and put it in our ears and shove it in there. Okay, now told me what this person just said to me. Right? It happened. Naturally this assembly is
here, we understand it, we can and we react.
So we'll let them handle it.
And then in verse number 17,
items that eat up on our
team that Anthony and he they'll hold on
to Shima. And he won't be fed your team in the new coming
in, he may
or may you will need further data. But he or she
can with Allison
when it rows declining to the right from their case.
Right. So basically, their cave is faced, right their cave is facing north you have sun rising in the east and setting in the West. So the sunlight entering into the cave. That's really what I was saying here, right? He says what you love about chocolate that she met, and when it said turning away from them to the left.
All it tells us that the cave was facing towards the north, but doesn't tell the location of the cave. He doesn't tell us where it is on earth. And the profits and loss of it. He was some of them said I have not left anything that you will that will bring you closer to paradise and keep you further away from further away from hell. But I have certainly taught you about it. So profits in the long run tells us that there is nothing that we need to know more than what we already know. Okay, so we shouldn't think like, oh, but something was left out. Why didn't the law tell us where their cave is? Why doesn't the love reveal. Because we don't mean where it is it doesn't change
anything for us. It won't make us worship Allah more or better. So I'm just going to speed it up a little bit because I know there's probably broken at the door to come into the masjid. And I have not heard the door open. So I'm sure the volunteers are not there yet. So basically, what Alyssa pedowitz ad is showing us here that London is rising in the east setting in the West, and Kate is facing the North, so the sun is not entering into their cave.
And that's because it would basically burn them or it would do something to their bodies. And then he says that he come in,
that is from the Ayat of Allah, He guided them to this cave, and brought them into the cave that's facing in the right direction, perfect for their preservation so they can be there for a long time. He kept them alive in the cave of loss upon which it has the ability and power to do that he's keeping us alive right now. Like, I don't need to eat right now in order to stay alive, but it's happening, right.
And the sun and the wind, you know did not enter into the cave, preserving them perfectly in their form in their bodies may 11 more dead heat who Allah guides is the right guided and whoever wants to pan which Allah leaves to go astray. They will find no one to guide them will suffice with them. So I wanted to I wanted to go to the end of verse number
