Santa Monica de la Barakatuh hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala shuffleboards Serena Muhammad wa ala early he was so happy as you marry.
Before I started a program I just saw inshallah I don't forget, the brothers asked me to remind you about one more conference. Inshallah I try to remember and mentioned this at the end of the program for those who are come late, we still have around maybe 200 less than 200 tickets that are available for sale. And you are highly encouraged to buy your tickets from now if you are planning to attend. Don't leave till the last moment and we tried to buy your tickets is what happens every time every year we have the same problem. We have people in the last minute calling, say okay, I need four tickets, three tickets, two tickets, which is not. It's not very convenient for those who are trying
to organize the conference, and so try to if you're planning to attend. Anyway, the tickets are available online for sale.
Now today inshallah we'll continue with the story of float ally SLM. And here we'll be dealing with Surah tude. The second surah the first Surah we mentioned it was sorted out of the eight from 80 to 84.
So in Surah, took from the 869 to 83. Allah subhanaw taala told us about the story of load Ali salah, and sometimes it is mixed with the story of Ibrahim Ali Sarah. But sometimes the story of float is mentioned by itself. So I hear in solitude, Allah subhanaw taala tells us told us about the visit of the angels to Ibrahim Ali Salam.
So before they want to move to visit Lord La Silla, we want to visit Ibrahim and his family. And he gave him the Bush era that he will receive a son that he will be blessed with a son. And that was a Bush era about is how are they Sara? Because Ibrahim alayhi salam had another son with hydrolase Scylla His name is married. Now Surah did not have children at that time. She was a very woman, she was not able to give birth to children. But Allah Subhana Allah decided to bless them with a child at an older age. So they want you to give him a bush. And at the same time called him we're gonna go to the people of float and punish them. Allah subhanaw taala has decreed that these people will be
punished the only people who will be saved, they are the family of fluid. And when we say the family of float, Lord Alan said him and his daughters, they always say except for his wife, his wife will be destroyed where the rest of the people will talk about his relationship with his wife at the end of this halacha it is very important because there is some sort of disagreement between Alison no Gemma and some sects or some groups within the Shia group about the relationship of
you know, note Ali Sarah and his wife what kind of
betrayal was there, she betrayed her husband, what was the nature of this betrayal? And what kind of conclusions these people derived were able to to derive from this kind of interpretation, or misinterpretation.
So anyway, so the context here is that the angels will go to Ibrahim Ali salah, and they will tell him about the destruction of the people of float. And Ibrahim Ali Salam was a soft person. They said he is only prophet who did not make the DUA against his people. When he left the Iraq. He did not ask Allah to destroy his people.
Like there are some other prophets and messengers. At the end, we prayed. We may derive against their own people, both Ibrahim alayhi salam, they said no, he did not make he left era he decided to leave his people, but they did not
make dua against his people. And here, he is trying to argue with the angels and ask them maybe he should delay the punishment to give them time more time. Maybe they will make Tober maybe they will correct themselves. And another occasion, he said this Lord and his family, are you going to punish everyone? So he's trying, you know, to delay the punishment. That's why Allah subhanaw taala describes him as heavy and being heavy in the end is someone who has forbearance.
Two important points here
Ibra elute ally seller when he received the
angels, and of course, angels when they take the shape of a human being, they are very handsome.
They are very handsome, because they are angels.
So the people of flow, heard about them.
And he came, the mob came and surrounded his house, they wanted his visitors to approach them.
So he was in a very difficult situation. Because in the beginning, he didn't know that his visitors are angels.
He didn't know that. And he felt like this will be a tough day, a very difficult day.
His house was surrounded with these people, they're trying to attack his house, that we need to deal with these people stay away. So he said here, he made the statement that some some of our young people did not understand. He said, all my people, here are my daughters for marriage, they are pure for you.
So it sounds like he's offering his own two daughters for them to get married with them, to get married with them, because he said they are pure for you. He's talking about a pure relationship.
So there are three interpretations of this idea. The first interpretation is that he invited his own people, okay, you want to fulfill your desire, you can fulfill it through Halal marriage, and I'm allowed, I am I am ready, I am ready to allow you to get married with my two daughters. But if they were a mob of like 40 people, let's say Allahu Allah or 50 people, they're not going to marry to two women, all of them, I mean, a woman is supposed to get married with one person. So at the end, it will not solve the problem. But this is
this is the interpretation of some scholars, it will solve the problem of two individuals only because he had only two daughters. It didn't have 100 daughters, right? They solve the problem of a bigger group of people, two daughters, and they will get married. If they get married, they get married with two people only.
So it doesn't make sense here but this is an interpretation but your moral ruler, man, the majority of Muslim scholars, we said he was not talking about his daughters.
He was talking about single woman in the community.
And what is their proof? This ad every messenger or every prophet is the father of his own people. What is the proof is found in Surah Eliza interview, I will now be meaning I mean, unfortunately, you were as well as you are married to him. So he said Allah Subhana. Allah says in surah Lazarov. In the first page, if you go to the first page of fertilizer, Allah says, the prophet had a closer relationship to the believers than themselves.
And what as well as you Maha to whom and his wives or their mothers, that's why we say Khadija, the Mother of the Believers, we say Aisha the Mother of the Believers, we say Hafsa, the Mother of the Believers, so any to the wife of any prophet is the mother of the members of his own community.
And this is the opinion of majority of Muslim scholars. And I feel comfortable with this opinion. And this is what I choose. We
Is your opinion female Tabari mm Luca Thea and many scholars they said he did not mean his own proud his own daughters because there are some young people who say, Okay, how about if they don't want to get married with them?
And this is a good legitimate, legitimate question right?
There is a third scholar, his name is a crema was a great scholar of Tafseer, one of the students of Abdullah and I bet some of the Elana he said Maybe he meant his daughter, but like he, he was talking about his daughter, but he did not mean it.
He was in a desperate situation,
a desperate situation. So he said what he said,
because he was he felt like he's, he was helpless. He didn't have an army, he didn't have a group of people to defend him. He had Allah subhanho wa taala. And Allah subhanaw taala was enough for him, he saved him and he saved his family, right? Allah subhanaw taala whether you will make money is the supportive of the believers. But at that moment, we said at that moment, when he was dealing with these people, he felt like he felt that it was a very difficult moment. So he said what he said, but he did not mean it. He did not mean to allow them to get married with his daughters, because these people don't deserve to be his sons in law. They are too far. And they are disobedience they are
making like, they are disobedient people. They're disobeying Allah subhanaw taala committing a major sin. So people are these people to be to be and to be honest with you. They're not pure. They're not good people, for his daughters for the daughters of a prophet. That's why I feel comfortable with the opinion of those who said that they are he meant the single woman of his nation, because the other single woman of her possession they were not Muslims to
they were not Muslims. So non Muslims getting married with with non Muslims has nothing to do with it. Allah has created and he said it Allah said it in another Surah that close and SLM was telling them why do you leave the wife that your Lord has created for you? So this idea is oral hygiene, if I'm not mistaken, is confirming this meaning, this interpretation that was chosen by some scholars, but he meant he did not mean his own daughters. He meant the single woman of his nation by way of hell and marriage. A prophet will not invite people to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala he will not tell them Whoa, don't commit the sin. But you can go and do Zina with other woman. Allah's Prophet
will not do that. So he said he invited them to get married to get to have a relationship with a single woman of his own community by Halal through by way of Halal marriage.
The last the other point here and it is it is important it is a serious warning. Allah's hurt I'll tell Wilma he I mean a volley mean to be buried and this punishment is not far from the wrong doors.
I believe this is a serious warning to the rest of humanity. Will Mahi Amina volley Mina be buried. This punishment that happened to the people of load is not far from any wrong door. So which means anyone who follows follows their path. This Allah Salam O Allah.
So this is something that we really have to be concerned about as people leaving at this time
leaving after 2001
and 20 wants it 21st century, you know that the first time
the first time people were having were allowed are officially allowed to get married to have same sex marriage. It was It happened in 2001 in the Netherland
so the history of this movement after 2001 is something different than before.
Before 2001 or the year 2000. The law was made in 2000. And it came into effect in 2001. And that was in the Netherland in Europe, and then started countries other countries started, you know, approving same sex marriages. It happened in Canada in 2005. Under the leadership of Paul Martin, if I'm not mistaken, he was the Prime Minister of the Liberal government at that time.
this is modern history.
So this is what happened at that time. And this what Allah subhanaw taala told us about or how Allah subhanaw taala describe the story in solitude.
So little hedger
is almost the same, the same
content, but there is a very important if at the end here, or 75. He said in the fidelity Keller ITIL, the material was see mean, will be in this earth science for those who contemplate, again, you need to pay attention to this Allah subhanaw taala is inviting people to reflect upon this story and derive lessons from it al mutawa sim, who will live he Istanbul, UCLA, and he the one who uses his intellect to derive conclusions and take lessons is not someone who is heedless. He would look at things and hear about stories and now not to learn any, any wisdom or any Lesson No, he's a smart person, which I was seen in. So, all the talking about the word motor was seen in here, those who
look at things and there are there are people who have wisdom and knowledge and they have the ability to derive lessons. So he said in a fee identical I add in this art science for those who contemplate and it is again an invitation to people to carefully ponder about this story. Sora to show Ara, it is important. Again, Allah Subhana Allah Allah made the important if we want to talk about the important points here. Allah subhanaw taala again, telling them or Lord Allah SLM, rebuking them, about advising them about approaching males with sexual desires. Here it is emphasized neither violence nor highway robbery are mentioned.
This is very important because we need to know when Lord Allah SLM was talking about this fascia, it's called shameful deed, only without any abusing of travelers or doing anything else. The only Surah that mentioned other deeds or other misdeeds is sortal. Anchor boat. But all the other sewers, the focus was on the whom the act of homosexuality in itself. And this is something I repeat why because I heard some Muslims, I'm repeating this it's becoming repetitive, because I heard some young Muslims and people talking on a given platform and talking about violence. They will punish because of the violence not because of the relationship, and they try to say this relationship
should be halal, should be fine, because they were punished because of violence, sexual violence and rape. And this is not right. It Lord Allah SLM is not talking about violence. Here. Again, I'm trying to explain this, because I really want you to understand this point, so you can use it in the future. If you face this, these people, and they could be members of our communities. They could be members of our communities who are just learning their Deen from the internet, learning their Deen from the internet. I know, I know, people who deviated deviated they chose a different path regarding this,
this issue here, because the problem is they stayed at home in the basement learning from the internet, learning from sheer Google not coming to Halaqaat or talking to Imams or Messiah learning by themselves. And the ended up adopting this, this new ideology. So it's very important that we go back to the what our Buddha might have said, it's, it's not it's not possible for that for the last for 1400 years. All our children agreed on this what we're talking about today, all of them agreed that Allah subhanaw taala punish them because of this fascia, homosexuality and Lord saying that none, no one has done this before you and we've lost all this emphasis and this reputation and we
saw a story mentioning in different ayat, and then you find some people in the 21st century. They are young people maybe they don't know how to recite al Fatiha properly thing all the other scholars were wrong in this, so homosexuality is Hala and they will punish for rape or violence.
So I hope that I emphasize this point enough.
Again, the same contacts are the same like steps here the threatened flow to expel him from their town.
And his response his collar in nearly identical middle Colleen. So I'm truly one of those who despise your shameful practice. And this is a lesson for us here.
Don't be don't try to feel comfortable with this and say okay, this is we live in a free society.
Yes, we live in a free
and everyone has the freedom to choose whatever he wants right? But you have the freedom to reject
sins and activities, disobedience, you have the freedom to do that.
And that is your religion. And that is your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala
Lord la sallam, he was not violent here. But he said immediate family, communal callin, I am truly one of those who despise your shameful deeds.
I cannot accept what you are doing.
And you have the freedom to say I do not accept this new ideology, you should have the freedom because the other people are claiming that we are expressing Well, we are practicing our freedom, our right to choose, but you have the right to choose to.
No one can force you to accept any philosophy we know it can force you to accept any ideology. And inshallah we'll talk about it at the end how to deal with these issues at work or, you know, with the media will love just can try to share some tips here.
But this is what Lord Allison and said, so do not try to be politically correct, correct. Our leaders, I have heard some Muslim leaders
saying, you know, they are a minority, and we are a minority, and we have to protect the rights of all minorities.
I mean, no one is forcing you to protect the rights of other minorities.
If you've if you try to protect the rights of your own
mind group and your own community, no one will blame you, they will understand you are a member of the Muslim community, you are fighting for the rights of the Muslim community, and everyone will be fine about it in this country. This is not racism,
it becomes a matter of racism and hatred. When you attack other people use some strong language against them. You know, there are people sometimes when they talk about this subject, they're not careful, they don't use you have to be careful about the language you use, the way you express yourself. method there is a conservative member of the Conservative Party now she's being taken into account because few months ago, she compared trans children to faeces in food.
I mean, if you use this language, you're gonna lose your case.
You cannot you're not going to win your case, if you use this language.
And I don't think she will win. I mean, she will not be elected, because her own party's against is not comfortable with what what what she said.
So so now you have a we have to learn how to play our game as Muslims have to be frank about it. People are very smart in this society. One they know how to play their game.
And everyone knows that you know, honesty is not is not is not the the way people go about in this in this country, even in this country right to the appreciate they said We appreciate the the value of honesty, but not everyone is honest. They use different ways to achieve their goals. But I'm not saying he recruited
be crooked, because we're going to emphasize the point of upholding the truth. You don't lie to people, you have to share the truth as it is in the book of Allah subhanaw taala.
I'm not saying here that we have to be hypocrite, no, we're not talking about hypocrisy. What we are saying is you have to be careful about the language you use when you talk about this subject. There is nothing wrong with that.
But do not mix the truth with falsehood. Do not cheat other people do not give them false information about your deen
do not this the guidance about this story is very clear in the Quran. Right? So you cannot change the message of the story.
The deen of Allah Subhana Allah cannot change it. But at the same time, you have to be careful about the language you use, whether you're talking to the media, whether you're a leader, you are a member of a youth group, you're dealing with this issue dealing with other people, you have to be careful about the language you use. Right.
there is another there is something important here. Jimmy This is the most important thing.
supplication supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala
This is our weapon as Muslims. The weapon of the believer is da da use you
Not on Instagram carabiner Genie will ally.
me may I mention this in surah? Two sharara we're talking about solar chakra right? Yes.
So in order to Shara
Allah Subhana Allah and as 69 told us about the dua of love and I said, Oh my Lord saved me and my family from the consequences of what we do.
Here, Allah subhanaw taala and this passage in Surah sharara were in Arabic Allahu Allah Aziz or Rahim,
were in Arabic Allahu Allah Aziz Rahim. Allah as he is means the exalted in mind, Rahim the Most Merciful. So Allama Kowloon, you Aki boomin Yasha obesity, where have you been Yasha over Ramadan.
He would punish whomever he wishes, especially the people of disobedience with his power and might
and he includes whomever he wants in his mercy. And here, whenever this ayah is mentioned, in Surah, to sharara, at the end of every story, this area is mentioned it means that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has punished the people who rejected the message of their prophet and has saved his prophet, and the believers with his mercy. You see the context, the connection of these two names. Allah Aziza Rahim, the connection of these two names with the story, because if you go to Surah sharara, there are many stories, same count, same steps, a prophet will be inviting his people to the deen of Allah, they reject his message, they abuse this prophet, right? And then Allah subhanaw taala would punish this
group of people, and we'd save His messenger and saved along with the believers. And then at the end, Allah subhanaw taala will end every story with these two names were in Arabic Allah Hua al as he zu Rahim. So what you can do, you can empower the dua of a flute, Alessandra, you can tell me you can tell me there is a young person who told me one time okay. If this worked for Ruth, Allison and why do we need to empower the DA? Right? Me? I told them maybe Lord La Silla was a great prophet and he was a great prophet. It was enough for him to say this dua we are in a more desperate situation because when you think about it is more sophisticated these days it's we're in a dangerous situation
think about loads small villages 456 villages in one area now it's it's this new ideology accepted worldwide.
War worldwide, people are losing their jobs. People are being rebuked or people are being disciplined for refusing methylene to to carry the fly the flag, the rainbow flag or whatever. I mean, people are going through a lot now these days. So it's not it's not something simple, right? What happened to you in France few days ago, it might happen in another country, where some Muslim soccer players refuse to carry the variable armband. They were disciplined.
The Ministry of sports and physical I think, I don't know what they call it there. But they were they were trying to make them pay a penalty and to punish them for for missing these games. And so things are happening in many places. So anyway,
it's good to empower your eye with the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala you can use these two names in Naka Intel as is alright, so what do you say? Robina Genie will Le me May I'm alone in NACA and tell us EVO, or Rahim, right. And by the way, you can use it. You can use it whenever you see something wrong. Even when you pass by a liquor store, you see a liquor store,
develop the habit of using this is good for you, and good for your family.
Whenever you see something wrong in the street, try to use this to be connected with Allah all the time because you need his help. And you need his support. You don't know what will happen tomorrow. You don't know what will happen after tomorrow, things are happening. Things are changing. Right?
In Mecca, caribou Mojib another way to empower this to her indica, caribou, mushy, carryover mushy these are two Beautiful Names of Allah subhanaw taala. It means very for Allah, or Verily, you are near who answers the prayers who answered the prayers. So you are his near to his servants and he answers the prayers. We got these two names. These two names are mentioned in two sources or three sources in in the Quran surah toad and another Surah maybe father, but
But the meaning of the I want 86 This is 186 in Surah Al Baqarah is very powerful about the power of the iron Ramadan. We talked about it during Ramadan. We they said Allah Kariba the only the in the Corrib Corrib here one of the names of Allah for me carry on your servant asked me my servant asked you about me or concerning me tell them I am beer Huji Buddha I wanted the either the n. So Allah subhanaw taala is describing his nearness to His servant by saying that I answered your DUA, I listened to their supplications so when you use these two, even with other two hands, you can use it in NACA and tell curry Wushi put le for lamb in into L caribou. l Moshe with Elif lab, or you can
use them without le for Lamesa Inaka curry bougie both of them are okay are correct. In NECA, Samia or Dora, I took this from from the story of Zachary Ali Salam in Surah Al Imran a 38 who nearly had the as a career of color be heavily Mila don't carry it and saleha indica semi a dua The reason I chose these two names here or this, this sentence here indica semi or dua, Verily you hear the supplications you hear the DUA the prayers of your servants, because they carry Ali Salamone. He made this to her after he found out that Maryam nslm was receiving summer fruits in the winter and winter fruits in the summer. He was amazed even though he was a prophet, she was not the Prophet.
But this reminded him he was a prophet right reminded him about the power of Allah Subhana Allah to give. And even though he was in a very difficult situation, what was his situation? It was impossible, like almost impossible, but there is nothing impossible for Allah subhanaw taala right. But he was an old man. His white with hair was white. He described his physical shape that he was very weak. And his, his, his wife was about a woman who was not able to give birth to children. She was a childless woman. And yet, he made dua, asking Allah to bless him with a child.
And then he said that the end of his dua in NECA Samia Ha, ha. It's a very powerful dua use it, use it to empower you to us. So what do you say about being a genie, what actually you keep in mind or what is going on and you're worried about your job? I have students going to university they're worrying about some classes. Because then these classes these professors are promoting this ideology under the banner of Diversity and Inclusion, Diversity, and Inclusion and promoting this ideology. And looking at the hijab in the reaction of the hijab, the sisters and the Muslim Brothers looking at the reaction
how are they going to react when the professor mentioned these things and promotes these things and in in emphasize you know, the new gender ideology, and it's not an easy situation.
It's not an easy situation. So now everyone is dealing with it in his own way or her own way. But anyway, this is I believe, this is one of the best ways to learn this to
say it every day. be connected with Allah subhanaw taala through this supplications Robina Genie we're early May I'm alone. Oh my Lord saved me and my family from the consequences of what they do in mechanical Aziz Rahim in the candle Caribbean machine indica semi or die you can repeat them together. You can empower empower these two out with only two names and as is a Rahim you can repeat to our with these two names like whether you say Robin a genie will actually remain in the candle as his or Rahim Robina Genie will leave in May I'm alone in the candle kriebel mushy Robina Genie where it may or maroon indica semi dA. So you can do it in different ways to try to empower your DUA with
with the names The Most Beautiful Names of Allah subhana wa
Here, there is another message another very
Of course, there are two interpretations about this IFF to Foreign Service, Neville, but one of them is horrible, is horrible.
So in this ayah Allah says in surah nemen Of course, he talks about this story from area 54 to 58. And 54 will note on his career told me I truly wish there were no
tubes rune ah, what is the meaning and interpretation 1220
One of them is a horrible interpretation, but it could be true
it could be true
so basically saying your ally said I'm saying to His people do commit that shameful deed and fascia where the fascia shameful deed
well you can see one another.
This is one interpretation.
Whatever tuna fina de Kamal mancha This is insalata Lanka boat, that you commit sins
in your gatherings, which means, like, this is the interpretation of some scholars that we used to do it in public
while looking at each other.
So this is the first interpretation second invitation to see your own It could mean well you are aware that it is wrong, to see your own from basura being aware that this is wrong, but you still do it. And this is also very bad. There is a difference between someone who disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala was not knowing that this is haram. Okay. He's not aware that this is haram, but between someone who disobeyed Allah subhanaw, taala, wallowing, this is a major sin.
So he does the purpose. It's not a mistake. It's not a miscalculation. It's a willful disobedience act of disobedience. So here anyway, this is the second interpretation, and it is less intense than the other one, because the other one would be horrible. The only it was doing openly in public. Now, the lesson that we take from this
are people doing it in public nowadays?
In some cases, in some ways, yes. They're being proud of it. They're showing pride about it. They're, they're proud of it.
The other way, the other way of being public about it and being open about it is to share these stories with pictures on social media.
Social media, people sharing everything.
Salah Salem Olathe is why social media is very dangerous to parents, you have to learn about how social media works.
You know, so you can help your children, we can help your families.
It's a very serious matter. So there are many people who are lucky. I mean, they're not shameful. They're not they don't. They're okay. They're fine. They're proud of themselves. And they're sharing this information on social media.
So, it is a sort of Salah salam ala Afia it's making things public.
But this is what Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Dendermonde the rest of the content, same steps. They said expel the family of law there are people who wish to remain pure. And Allah subhanaw taala saves loot and his family except his wife. And then he said we pulled upon them rain, brimstone. How evil was the rain of those who had been warned? So they had been word, warned but they didn't listen. So little anchor Bucha
Allah subhanaw taala talked about the story from 26 to 35. In Iowa, and Iowa 28 He confirmed the same meaning no other people have done this before.
I had 29
lo tally Salem This is in order to encode listed some of their evil deeds. That's the only surah in which Luke listed some other deeds.
So he was talking in all the other songs he was talking about the act of homosexuality itself. But in this surah luthiery salaam he said, you know you lust after other men you abuse the travelers with Dr. Aruna Sabine, whatever tuna, fina de como monka, are you practicing morality openly in your gatherings, and there are different interpretation about practicing immorality in their gatherings openly in their gatherings. One of them is that they used to practice this sexual activity openly in front of each other. This is one interpretation one of the interpretations, the other interpretation, there are silly things one of them I don't want to mention, mentioned it because the
people will be kids will be laughing and they were not going to continue the holocaust of the Halacha. But it's silly and it is mentioned in in the books of of Tafseer this people who are they were, they were evil people. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah punish them in this way. So the response of his people the response is very interesting here.
The response of his people bring Allah's punishment upon us if what you say is true.
And this is the pinnacle of ignorance, because when you say to someone if what you are saying is true
You should be saying what
if you have a dialogue with someone argument with someone,
two different opinions?
If you are a good man, someone who is humble seeking the truth, what would we react your reaction with someone who have is having a different opinion about you with you different opinion about something?
You tell them if you are saying if you what you're saying is true, I hope that ALLAH spirit Allah will guide me will show me the truth right? We give me a diet.
This is not the case with these people. They said if what you're saying is children bring Allah's punishment upon us let it happen, which means we don't care. Let it happen.
This was the response of his people. And then here at this moment, loot Allah made us another dua you could use you can use it to Robin Sony I'll call me mousseline. If you feel that some other people
are about to abuse your rights. And you are innocent. You are a good Muslim. But your rights are being abused. You can use these Robin Sony I'll call me. I'll move CD and that's another second to
that Lord Allah SLM used in this story. My Lord helped me against the people of corruption. That is the meaning of the DUA the second dua buttload, Ali Salam used
in a 35,
in the same Surah Lanka boot, we did leave some of its ruins as a clear lesson for people of understanding.
So, people of wisdom and understanding again, are invited again and again to reflect upon the story. But here Allah subhanaw taala he said, We left some ruins that are there, and people know about them. And in a different surah, we'll come to it. Allah Subhana Allah reminds the Mexicans who did not accept the message of Islam, that when you go through your trading trips, you pass by the ruins, and Americans live just 1400 years ago. You know, when Rasul Allah, as I sent him was alive
around 1400 years ago, so they used to know the exact location and they used to pass by it. So Allah has heard that I saying we left some of its ruins the ruins of the city.
And I feel like people are reminded about this story all the time, including our modern times. There is a research that was done. It started in maybe 2004 2005. It was an American researcher who works in a Christian university. It's a Christian university, who used to go to Jordan looking for the city of Sodom and Gomorrah, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, that was his mission.
And they thought that there is a place called tel el Hammam. And this city is located in the southern Jordan Valley. We said in the beginning of Luca Thiele set when both nslm left his uncle Ibrahim, he wants to monitor a place called War in Arabic war and ordain and that is called Jordan River Valley beside to the east of the Dead Sea. That was the location of these people, right? So this Christian scholar used to go there from maybe before 2001. But in 2001, he started talking about this issue, and he talked to the government, the government, the Jordanian government about getting a license, giving him a license to start doing some excavations and some research in that
And he started, he invited some other scholars and professors and experts from different universities, some of them from Canada, some of them from the US, some of them from the local community, Jordan,
around maybe 100, more than 100 experts and professors were involved in this research.
It was conducted for more than 15 years. Now this scholar you have in the media now, if you go to the internet, you'll find this matter and these titles, this is a real title, you can Google it. Sodom and Gomorrah evidence that the cosmic impact destroyed a biblical city in the Jordan Valley. This this article was shared on September 28 2021. Right so this Christian scholar and some other Christians callers have no doubt
that this tell her ma'am was the location of the people of Lord the city this place called tel al Harmon there are some zoo
Danian scholars who confirm this, they said we have no doubt that this is the place where Ruth and SLM lived. But these Jordanian scholars are professors, they are Muslims. So they don't want to talk about the people of law. When we talk about the subject, we talk about private law and a sinner said this is the place where profit loop and SLM lived. And some of them even came up with the idea of using it as a touristic attraction place of attraction to attract tourists and make money, make money, let's let people come to this place and visit this place. And we'll create some jobs and you know, and let people local people make money by dealing with tourists and everything. This is kind
of a good idea, by the way. But when we talk about it, they made, they made a famous there was a famous, you know, meeting that took place in Jordan, and this is how these ideas were shared. They will share these ideas how the how they can how can they? How can they take advantage of this? This discovery, right? But there are some other professors and experts who will not they're not religious. They're not religious. And some of them could be atheists. They don't like this kind of connection between the scientific discovery and between any real religious texts on any religious scripture. And they're refusing to make this connection. They said, yes, there was a cosmic event.
There was a cosmic Earth burst that destroyed this area around 363,060 603,600 years ago, which is around 16 1650, before Christian Era, right 1650 Before Christian era, and by the way, that's a time when Lord Allah Salam and Abraham lived in that area, it's very close, close to their time, because there are many historians, they said, Lord, Allah, Islam lived in that area
during the time between 60 and 85, around 85, before Christian Era, to 1860 during that time period of time. So it's very close to what these scientists are talking about this at this cosmic impact, cosmic event that took place, it was a very strong event that created the heat of 2000 degrees Celsius. And they said, people at the time didn't have the technology to you know, to create this, this, this heat is temperature, it's not possible for them. So it's a natural event that took place it's a disaster natural disaster that took place. Now to me as a Muslim, I know the story of what I said and I said, Yes, most likely is the location is the same location, we know that the people have
loads lived in that area. And the time is very close to the time of Lord Ali Salaam and the time of Ibrahim Ali Salah. So most likely, yes, this is new scientific. So so this scientist agree that your this cosmic event took place at that time. But you refuse to make connection between this discovery and between the story that is found in the Bible and found in the in the Quran. There are similarities, many similarities between the story that is found in the Bible, and the Quran, but there is one thing that is Yanni that has it should be totally a couple of things, but one of them is horrible, that should be totally refused. I'll tell you about it at the end shall.
So I feel like this is a personal feeling here that this is another reminder for modern community communities. They approved same sex marriage in 2001. In 2001, this Christian Scientist was applying for a license to to you know, to do His work on this on this location. If you look at the timing here, the timeline. So it's a reminder for humanity, modern communities. If this is true, Allahu Allah, if this is what happened during the time now we know the story of law, you know, Allah subhanaw taala punished him
by but we cannot say 100% Yes, this is what happened this cosmic event. This this would happen to the people flow Allahu Allah, but most likely, yes, will love to Allah.
So what are the sofort? As I said, there was a message to the Americans who refuse to accept the message of Islam in ASC 173 was over t 38. Allah, Allah telling the McCanns uma can certainly pass by the ruins day
A night, will you not understand if aletta Aquino have a letter Q and this message should be for the rest of humanity.
Will you not then understand? These are the proofs. This is the guidance of Allah subhanho wa taala. So as I said, again, this is a proof that the Mexicans who used to travel from the city of Mecca to the sham, you know that the use of these travels these trips were very common at that time. By the way, the grandfather of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hashem Hashem died in the city of Lhasa. And they used to seek to take this route, going from North passing by Medina from Makkah, passing by Medina, passing by the area of Jordan nowadays, Jordan besides the read the Dead Sea, and then go into Palestine and Raza and the other, the other places. So the father, the
grandfather of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, Salam. We said, He's Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah, the son of Abdullah, the son of Abdulmutallab, the son of Hashem. That's why we say he's from Banu Hashim. So his grandfather, Hashem, He made a trip to the area of a sham to HERSA. Gaza nowadays, we call it because it has the same name. So he made the trip there in 40 497.
In the Christian era, AD, then he came back to the city of Medina. He got married with a woman Her name was Selma. She was from Beto Naja. That's why we said Verona, Georgia, the maternal uncles of the Prophet. So he got married with this woman, Selma. And then we're after she got pregnant, he decided to go back to the area of Gaza.
And when he went back there, he passed away in that area in 497.
But his his wife was pregnant and she gave birth to a child. She named him Shaybah because he had some white hair in his head. Shaybah would be Abdulmutallab later on, because his ankle
polyp and metallic and metallic not obtainable. matale his ankle, the brother of Hashem, who used to live in Mecca, heard about his nephew in the city of Medina, became a teenager shaver. So he went to the city of Medina convinced his mother Selma to to let her go with him. Let him go with him and live with us in the city of waka. He told her, he will live beside the Haram she didn't want to leave her son, to let her son go to back to the city of Makkah. But he told her I will live beside the Hara. In the future, he will be the leader of his people, and so on and so forth. And at the end, he accepted. So when when he was was going when he went back to the city of Makkah,
and he was entering the city of Makkah. Both of them were riding one camel, so Shaybah was behind his uncle. So the father check that and mortally bought a slave
bought a slave, they didn't know that it was his nephew. So they said had Abdullah polyp, Abdul Muttalib, the save of the slave of mortality, and mortality was his uncle. Right? At birth, long time himself. He said, He told him no, he's not a slave. He's my nephew. He's the son of my brother Hashem. But somehow I don't know why some people kept on calling him up, do not call him. And he became
I mean, famous with this name. Absolutely. Many people don't know his real name. So these are the, you know, His Rasul Allah, Muhammad, even though Abdullah, Abdullah mortality, we always use the name of the mortality. We don't know that his real name was Shaybah. Anyway, so my point is, these people used to travel a lot to this area, and they used to pass by the ruins of the city, and Allah to Allah and this surah sofort is reminding them, then you pass by the city, and you know their story. Right, because if they didn't know their story, there is no point of reminding them about it. They you should take a lesson from the story. That was the reminder that was sent to the people of
Surah Al Amer
almost the same content almost.
And Allah Subhan Allah said, indeed We sent upon them a storm of stones except the family of fluid we save them before dawn as a favor from us, thus do We reward he who is grateful. So Allah subhanaw taala is talking about the importance of chakra
that the last hotel is safe the people are flawed because they were people of chakra.
So what is the message for every Muslim that you have to be? Try your best to be grateful so
servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala How do we do that? But first of all upholding the truth. Don't change the message of the Quran.
uphold the truth, defend the truth, stand up for the truth. Right? Don't try to change. Now there is a big difference between someone committing a sin, committing a sin. I want you to pay attention to this, because this is a common problem in our societies nowadays in our communities, between someone committing a sin, privately, while feeling guilty about it, knowing that this is a sin, he knows it's a sin, and he feels guilty about it.
And hoping that Allah Subhana Allah will grant him Toba or repentance and between someone who's trying to change the message, someone will say no, I don't believe this is haram. I think this is her. And this is my opinion about it. And this is how I think about it. And it's okay to be this way. And it's okay to be this way. There is a big difference between the two cases Yeah, one.
When it comes to hammer, for example, someone drinking alcohol but believing It's haram, it's a major sin, asking Allah to get in, give him Toba so he can get rid of this habit of drinking alcohol, which means somewhere I don't believe that alcohol is haram because Allah subhanaw taala did not use the term haram in the Quran. He said questionable stay away from it and he doesn't mean that stay away from it is stronger than saying stay away. Stay away from it. don't deal with it at all
right? Don't deal with it. Keep away from it. But it's Oh Allah didn't use the term haram. So it should be halal. So as a barter economy, I could have a conference declare what is conference declare something that is well known is a basic principle but this is Hana. You try to make it huller using your own personal interpretation. This is worse than committing the same sin while believing it's still Haram are you able to see the difference?
So now some of our people learning from the internet, masha Allah, they are better than our classical scholars, they are better than blue cathedrals, go to Vienna, Tabori, and all these causes saying you know, no, I don't believe this is hot. I think it's okay. What's wrong with that? You know, an Imam was talking on the member an imam in the City of Calgary of the subject and someone in the in the audience. He said, What's wrong with that?
In the masjid,
in the masjid, you know, Juma prayer, the Imam giving hotbar on the member, someone told me about it. He said I was in the masjid. He said I was in that masjid and someone told the Imam what's wrong with that?
So we have to be very careful there.
So importance of Shaka Shaka, as I said, the first step as you uphold the truth. Don't try to change the message number one. Number two, try to keep remember all the time, the favorites of Allah upon you.
Think about your car. Think about your job. Think about your children, that they are safe. They go to school.
They have you have a shelter, you have a house, you go to your house you open the fridge is full of food. You have types of different types of juice and milk, meat fruits, try to don't take it for granted. You open the water the top in your kitchen and you get cold water and hot water water. There are people who cannot they cannot afford clean water in Africa and Asia in many countries nowadays. We now we got used to it to see people displaced being displaced from their countries from their hometowns. Now what's happening in Sudan, in Yemen, in Syria, they don't have a proper house. They don't have a proper shelter.
They don't feel safe. Right? They are always there. Their children are going through a lot. They said the you know,
millions of children now in Syria in Yemen, are having psychological problems. They have anxiety and fear because this they live with fear and anxiety. Now you're Muslim, you're living in this country, I have everything. Sometimes you lose your job or when you lose job and for a month or two and you become depressed and say okay, don't have money lost my job. And it's possible that you find a job within a month or two another job jobs are available there any I saw people I know people finding jobs during the time in the middle of recession.
In the middle of recession, people are losing their jobs and then other one week or two weeks hamdulillah finding another job. So so we are doing fine, but we need to don't take
anything for granted if you want to be grateful, grateful to Allah subhanaw taala grateful servant to Allah subhanaw taala he wanted to save you like he saved Lord RSL.
Keep in mind, think about all this man in these favors, when you go to night to your bed. When you go to night your bed, try to, you know, praise Allah subhanaw taala for his name or the name of your safety, or you're safe, you have a shelter, and your family is safe, your children are safe.
And you go into bed without thinking about anything.
You know, people coming to your house and abusing your family who are taking your properties. You don't have this problem here. So do it. Keep in mind this think about it tonight and do it every night. Every night everyone we people have Shaka ungratefulness, then Allah Subhana Allah will inshallah save you from you know this calamities. Conclusion now, conclusion about these sources, whereas we'll talk about some other points what what is the time now is nine 988 minutes before the end, and 10 minutes after the event so we have some time. Now again, the conclusion the shameful deed which is in fascia in Arabic was is confirmed to be the act of homosexuality in itself in
itself without violence without rape. In three sorrows, three sorrows This is a conclusion Olara 81 Surah to Sha 165 or 66 Surah nemid 5455.
Three sorrows. Abusing the traveling people was mentioned only one Surah Al Anka boot. And it is not mentioned as an explanation to Alpha Heisha it was mentioned with it with it Right with Dr. Ona Sevilla with the tune of United eco mocha.
So, Allah's hotel mentioned this in spirit in a 29 in Surah telang, kaput
now talking a little bit about the wife of loot, the wife of loot, Allah subhanaw taala always mentioned her as someone who was destroyed with the people of loot right she was destroyed. She stayed behind by the sword, Harry, he gave us some information about her.
That of Allah myth, Emily Lilina Cafaro Murata, no humor at Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala gave us the example,
an example for the disbelievers to woman, the wife of new and the wife of Luth.
Each was married to one of our righteous servants. So to begin with, loathe Ali Salam was a servant,
a righteous servant of Allah subhanho wa taala. Right, this is something that an all Prophets and Messengers
were the best example for righteousness and piety.
Right. So now all the things that you find about in other books, unfortunately, religious books about prophets and messengers, having an illegal relationship with family members drinking alcohol, doing this and that, this is all something that has to totally has to be totally rejected.
Because it goes it defeats the wisdom, the concept of Allah's wisdom. Imagine Allah subhanaw taala sending to humanity, corrupted people to be the best example for humanity to teach people about righteousness. Can a corrupted person teach people about piety and righteousness is not possible. So it defeats the concept of Allah's wisdom, Allah is wise. And Hakeem, he doesn't send corrupted people to be role models for humanity. But I'll tell you what, what some people say both Lord Ali Salam and his two daughters.
Mara is just you know, you know why people are rejecting religion but in the process, they are rejecting the message of the Quran. So they're rejecting the message of their own their own scriptures, but in the process, unfortunately, they're not paying attention to the message of the Quran. This is something that you need to be aware of it in case you have a discussion with non Muslims about this subject, that the message of the Quran is clean is pure. There is no contradiction. We know that there is a contradiction in the Bible about the story of Florida lay Salem, right.
So here, but this is very something important here for HANA Tahoma, yet betrayed them, betrayed them.
So their husbands were of no benefit to them against Allah whatsoever. So that means their husbands even though they will prophets and messages, they will not help them on the Day of Judgment. So a family member
will not help another family member a righteous believing family member will not help a family member who is a disbeliever character on the Day of Judgment. This is something that we that's why we have to care about our family members and inviting them to the deen. We need to invite them to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala all the time and advise them to follow the path of piety because we want to be with them in Jannah. Right? We don't want to be separated on the day of judgment, because that would be a very sad situation, a family member in Jahannam, another family member in in Jannah. So here Allah subhanaw taala
called both were told and it is in the past when the Quran uses the past tense. It is an indication that this is a done deal it will happen. Both were told enter the fire along with others.
This message is about the wife of new and the wife of Lord. So both of them were disbelieving woman, right? But the Hagana what was the nature of their betrayal?
All through their mouth. Allah Sunol Gemma they said the nature of their betrayal. No, the wife of no use to tell her own people about the names of the new believers.
The new people new convert, who used to come secretly to know and accept the message of Islam. She she used to tell her people about their names so they will be persecuted. That's the piano betrayal of the wife of new Harrison now the betrayal of the wife of law. She used to tell her people about the handsome visitors, people who used to visit her husband. If a traveling person is handsome. He comes to visit Lord la salon. She used to go tell her people about the new visitors.
Which means both wives did not can commit an illegal sexual act.
Allah has protected the role of Alison Nojima. The he said they said all of them agreed that Allah has protected the households, households of all prophets and messengers from this filthy, illegal act of disobedience. That means there is no wife of Prophet who committed Zina or committed an illegal sexual act. There is no but there is a group of Shia who believe that oh, that could be the betrayal of the wife of mode, because they have another conclusion they want to derive another conclusion, which is very filthy.
He said if it was possible for for this to happen to the wife of loathe and no, then it should be possible for Aisha Radi Allahu Ana. mean many in the Mother of the Believers. A ta Hara and Mata Hara, the pure Mother of the Believers.
Allah told us about her innocence from the seventh heaven, Quran Utila that is recited till the Day of Judgment in surah. To know about her innocence, that she was an innocent lady. She was a pure and she was the wife of our Prophet in the studio. She will be the wife of our product in Jana, but they use this misinterpretation of this hired to reach another conclusion that has nothing to do with the story of fluid. The story of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah has nothing to do with the story of flu. And even though talking about the story of float, it is a misinterpretation is not the right interpretation. All through their mouth Alison, no Gemma, the said Allah subhanaw taala has
protected the households of prophets and messengers from this filth.
But that was a betrayal of his wife. She was this she does he does not accept his message. And she was helping
his own people.
Now there is the opinion of a mammal call Toby about Allah's punishment for these people.
And this statement is not clear here but I'll try to read it from his Tafseer is not an ayah from the Quran. But is the statement of a mammal altering and this is a very dangerous statement. What did he say? Is that can I mean him Fair enough? Well can I mean whom Robin?
Fair. Okay, well Jamie Lee suku till Gemma he really well he Hikmah to Allah He was sunnah to very bad.
This is a very dangerous statement, or to be said, not every single person from among the people of Lord was involved in this sexual activity. Not all of them most
likely their own hammer, they said their woman we're not, we're not involved. But the accepted with the other men were doing, they were fine with it. And as an example of that is the wife of loot or a seller.
So he said, a call to be said minimum fat no women whom Robin, some of them were involved. But some of them were satisfied. Oh, let them do whatever they want. Maybe they were saying we live in a free society, I don't know.
I don't know. But they said they were satisfied, they were happy. They said let them do whatever they want, rather than for all given to me really Sukkot in JAMA here. He said the masses were satisfied were happy, they were fine with it, the masses. So all of them were punished.
Here, in some countries, in some Western countries, their governments want to referendum
and the allow people to have a debate for two months or three months about the new gender ideology. And then the people have to really want to avoid the vote for it. And in some countries, majority have accepted the new gender ideology, and it became a law. So this law was not passed in the parliament until the majority of the people accepted the new gender ideology.
And I want a word to to be honest with you. When I think about the statement of inquiry, I become scared. Because we live in a time where majority of people are becoming fine with it. They're saying it's okay.
Majority there are people who still refusing, you know, this new gender ideology, there is some tension now, as I said, some conflict. Today's three days ago, there was a mass absence in one of the schools, some of the schools in London interior, because the schools decided to fly the rainbow with the pride flag. And big number of parents, Muslims and Christians decided to keep their children at home, didn't go to school, as an act of protest, protesting against what so there are things that are happening, there is a debate in these societies. And it is really important for us as Muslims again, to understand the story because that will be the foundation and then inshallah how
to deal with this issue. It's a different story, we talked about the wife of float. Now the best way to deal with these issues. These are just could be personal. Some of them are personal opinions. Some of the brothers he told me my friend, if I express my views at work, I might lose my job.
My answer to them I told them,
if you're having a discussion with your colleagues,
it is fine. It is accepted. If you say my view, it's a personal opinion, I don't want to share you don't have to share it with people.
If you don't want to get involved into this discussion,
if you don't want to talk about it, because not everyone is has the ability to face people and have an argument with them. Maybe some people feel like I don't have enough knowledge. We have five minutes, five minutes before the other
the karma, okay, so people might say okay, you know, maybe I don't have enough knowledge to deal with this issue and that's fine.
So you can say no one can force you to talk about it.
If you will say if you want to say this is a person now if you are a manager, it's possible that they tell you in your department you need to promote this new gender ideology
with you can I do?
And am I my advice my advice to my brothers and sisters you should be able to say this this is against my belief
against my religious beliefs against my faith. It's like my inviting you to drink with them. Alcohol right? Are you going to drink will you say it is not permissible in our religion? You're seeing that and you don't fear any backlash or any objection they will tell you oh we understand we understand. If you tell you eat some Indian pork, you're gonna tell them it's Haram is not accepted in our religion right? And you will be fine. No one will say anything about it. And they will try Oh we understand we respect your your culture or your your faith. When it comes to this matter why this matter is different.
Why is this matter different? And people are if they don't accept it, if the you know, if they don't want to promote it, they say this is hatred or this is this or they're inciting violence.
It has nothing to do with violence or hatred. It is against my religious beliefs. And I think that should be should be enough for you. It's a very strong case, I believe. And you have the NCCM. You have law here. We have lawyers, you have the community, we need to stand up for our rights or what? Yeah, we need to stand up for our rights.
We need to do something about it. We cannot just say okay, I mean, we live in this society. I know we have laws in this society.
But the law Mithen allows people to drink alcohol, are you going to say the law allows people to drink alcohol? So let's let's drink alcohol? It's okay, that's fine. So we can apply the same apply the same analogy right, to this issue. I know it's becoming, it's politicized. It's a political agenda. It's a political issue. But if conserve members of conservative parties have the courage to stand up and talk
with power and strength, that a Muslim who knows the guidance of Allah subhanho wa taala, who believes in the Day of Judgment, believes in Jana and NA, should have the same courage or better actually, you should be in a better position and say, Ah, but you have to be careful. Be careful about the language, anything that has to do with violence or hatred. If you use it, you will lose your case, I'm telling you,
you will not win your case.
By know how to express yourself, be smart about it. Most of most of our people are educated, they are professionals.
You know, Hamdulillah, how to be diplomatic about it, but convey the message don't change the message. So there is a term that they use.
Many Muslim organizations, when they encourage you to contact members of parliament, or the government, they say Be firm, and polite. Use this policy. Be firm, and polite, be firm, which means stick to the truth. Don't change the message, uphold the truth. But at the same time, you need to be polite with other people. You cannot abuse the rights of other people, you cannot insult other people. So you have to be careful about the language you use. Is that clear one and we have only one minute for a comment not for them. So we don't have time. Next Friday. We'll have our guests have one on my conference again, they will be here at 830 Inshallah, they will be talking I'm not going
to speak next Friday. So our guest speakers are coming to one more conference. We will be here on this table. Next Friday sha Allah at 830 And then again, you're encouraged to buy your tickets around 200 or less than 200 tickets are still available for sale. Well, that's Allah subhanaw taala and you will feel canaliculi Hey, Shiva Qumulo Pharaoh Baraka lofi come
