salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi
wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Brothers and sisters, welcome to another session of analyzing the lives of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. And today we're going to discover the story of uvala his salatu salam. And with that there'll be a little bit of mention of little gift alehissalaam which, you know, there's not much mentioned of him in the Quran. But there is a
there is a story of Uganda who salatu salam that has got a mention in two places, at least with some reference about his his situation, and we're going to go over that inshallah. So are you Valley his salatu salam, he was from the, from the seed of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he was born from his seat. In fact, he was actually related to him. And it makes us here, Rahim Allah has as highlighted his actual ancestry linking him to his hakala, his salatu salam, and then to obviously to Ibrahim Ali Salaam Salaam. So therefore, we mentioned him next because he actually comes within the immediate family of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. Now every prophet that Allah mentioned the Quran
with that he mentioned the situation, a few situation that they went through. And with each one, we will see that there is a difference in how Allah talks about them, I will see a difference in how Allah might even test them, and maybe perhaps what they will go through in their life. And all of that would have an impact on our lives. Because all of these, you know, stories are there for us to contemplate for us to think about. And for us to think, Well, you know, I'm in a similar situation as that Prophet alayhi salatu salam or I know someone who's in a similar similar situation. And therefore you can actually relate to them and find find some kind of solace inside you and find some
kind of way of saying that this is my way out of the situation. So I usually start out from The MBTI because all the ambia were actually tested by Allah. And they were tested more than anybody else because it also lasala horizn has told us according to Hadith Buhari that, he said, he was asked who are the closest to Alaska and in that he was actually told that they are the,
they're the Ansel fell emcell which means that they are the people who are the closest to Allah than the next closest to Allah. And Allah will test the closest to him and then the next closest to him, the most of the tests will actually occur on the people who are the closest to him. And then he mentioned that the embryology salon salon, they are the closest to a large region, and therefore, they will be tested the most. And from them, it was Rasulullah sallallahu retinols iq test the most. Now from that we understand that evali solid Salam was one of those who was tested quite a lot. And his test is unique, because it wasn't that he suddenly got an affliction. It was that he had so much
greatness in his actual life. And so many good things were there already. He had a lot of family, he had a lot of wealth, he had a lot of land, he owned so much and he was a you know, a rich individual, an affluent individual. And then he finds himself all of a sudden, he loses everything. And when Allah says he loses everything, Allah took everything away from him. So from being somebody who has got quite a lot, a lot in his life, all of a sudden Allah makes him come to nothing at all. Now, that's more tough than a person just having some kind of a you know, loss. Okay, when you have so much, and then you lose everything and we're not saying he had so much and then he lost part of
it. Because that also is a testament to that, no, he Allah gave you so much. And then all of a sudden Allah took all of it away from everything, everything away from it.
And evali Saracen was left without anyone besides Him, except for his wife. I mean, I love you Please be there that she she remained with him. Now, when Allah azza wa jal mentions about evali salam salam, it's interesting that he mentioned
him in a couple of places in the Quran, where you find that Allah is trying to give some comfort to Rasulullah sallallahu. So if you look into the Gambia, where the first mention of Ebola, I mean, his name is mentioned in other places. But where he's mentioned with a bit about his story is Amir sootel, MBA student number 21. I am number 83 and number 84, but Allah azza wa jal, he says, Are you when he called on to his Lord, and Nima Sonia boo, some affliction has befallen me while you are the Most Merciful of those who have messy and then Alice's faster Devon Allah who we answered his call. Now this this ayah in Surah ambia falls right in between so many different messengers, Allah him
salam, Salam. So if we just look into that and we add that note, just just before that, you will see the story of Ibrahim and I said on the story of Nutella Salaam story of new Halle Sarang dimensional Tao, salam, Ala Moana is around and then iubat is on the sixth per individual. And Allah mentioned briefly a couple of messengers before again going on to the story of unison Salaam, the another individual, and then Zachary Allah salam, and then you know, Isa nadiem. So all of these messages that we mentioned, why? Because Allah says just before that he says in
I number 73 of surah number 21. He says what Jana whom in we made all of these individuals, we're about to mention all of these profits, we made them leaders, they are people who are in front of others. Yeah, do not be Amina. They are directly taking guidance from our command. So they're listening to me who is Allah. And then while highlighting Allah says that I gave them inspiration, share a little hierarchy to do good to do good to uphold all good deeds. This is widely being tested by a karma Salah ragavan inspiration that they will actually perform their prayers. This is while the being afflicted with ether as occur and that they would give the you know, charities and so on.
Were cantilena, Aberdeen, and all of them they were they were servants of mine, who who are devoted to Allah. And he says what are the Hala houfy Rama Tina, this is an animal at six. I entered all of them into my mercy in numina, Sala hain all of them were from the righteous. Now what we get from here is that as we reading the stories, we're supposed to reflect that Allah made them or ima, he made them leaders. And Allah is saying that they're following his command. And he's telling us to follow these leaders who are the Prophet sallahu wa salatu salam. Now, that's one thing he's telling us to actually take them as an example. But Furthermore, specifically with a uvala, his salatu
salam, we find that he was not like other prophets, because other prophets, they went through affliction, like we just covered. And not long ago, we covered jacoba salam, he lost his son for about 40 years. And use of Li Salam was actually, you know, going through test after test we covered now that was a different type of story, because that's losing one individual, and you're having that kind of affliction or yearning for that one individual, whereas here are usually sometimes losing his entire family. We had the, you know, we've had stories, one of the stories we've just covered recently is tribalism, where he's, he's, he's, you know, he's facing a lot of people in society, who
are all treacherous. We're all using forms of trickery, to try and cheat others. And he's got to deal with these people every single day. Now, a lot of the nonprofit's went through this. But here we find a prophet alayhi salatu salam who's literally left alone for about 18 years, some have said is three years, some have said is seven years. And and there's one ration that says 18 years, one eight years that he's left to himself to deal with his situation. And it's a very solitude situation. It's a very, like, you know, person on his own, no one's coming near him. It's only his wife that is in his service. Otherwise, his left to himself is very different from all the other
situations because the other situations are, you've got people around, you're dealing with still still people, you know, you're still having interaction and so on. Here, you've got a complete, isolated situation.
And what we find again, with Sara salon is throughout his entire part of 18 years, he is when you lose everything, all of a sudden, you know, it's a great shot, he will knock off, knock anyone off the balance. But be the second thing is that when you when you've lost all of that, for you to enjoy it for let's say, you know, a week, month, a year and so on, you know, people can do that. Two years, three years, four years, people do that. Five years, six years, seven years.
really gets to people, you know, if you're in the same situation same affliction for so long, it eventually gets to you. And are you going to sit and what we find about him is that throughout the entire situation he remained Allah says, in the Holy Quran, this is this is the main reference about him the Quran is Surah number 38. And number 41 onwards, and the main reference here of him, it's about five different verses that talks about his situation, and are allowed to seed have given the explanation of the situation. So one of the things that law says about him right at the ending number 44, is in whatever now who Sameera I found a you to be a patient servant of mine near my lab,
what a great servant, what a great servant. Now, we need to take heat from this because some of us will be in the affliction for a short while, and some of us will be in a long run and no one's going to be saved from an affliction. And if somebody actually goes through an affliction or faces some kind of trouble, the thing not to say is I would like give me a sub. The thing not to say is our login is about why it is Rasulullah sallallahu. In his time, when there was an individual who said Allah give me sub Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam interrupted his drama. He said, Oh individually said, ask Allah for relief. Don't ask for sub. Because if you're asking for supper, if
you're saying, Our Lord, give me patience, it means that you want a lot to keep you in the trial.
Because you can't be patient unless you're in a trial. So this is from the beautiful wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when we're in a situation like that, we don't say Allah give me subtle, no, we don't even say Allah give me the endurance of carrying on with the server. No, we say simply, we say our love, we ask you for our fear. Our fear means relief, a lot of my enemy as a local fear Allah, I'm asking you for relief. Now I fear relief is a situation where we don't want to be in the situation, we don't want to want to be in trouble. We want to be completely out of this, free of this and therefore relieved of the situation. So that's what we asked, although Allah
praises the sublime he praises the patience of a servant when they're in the trial. Now, what was the actual you know what actually happened to iE valextra? Well, there are many different variations in the in the ceiling so that the see you got to be careful when you read some of the books of the seed because there are Israeli narrations, what does that mean there are narrations from the people who converted from Judaism to Islam in the early from the from the early Sahaba of the 109. So there were Jewish rabbis who converted to Islam, they became very good Muslims, they became part of the Sahaba of the Allahabad mine, as some of them in the tabular time in the next generation they
converted from Judaism to Islam. However, there is one problem the problem was that they would they would narrate stories from what they found in the Torah. Now in the Torah, there are many different variations about the name Salaam Salaam, some of them are true, and some of them have been distorted from the actual truth. So when Rasulullah sallallahu was and he was asked, do we what what how do we face these stories? How do we treat them? Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us a lot to set the Coahuila too comfortable said you, he said, you can actually narrate them, he gave us permission to narrate them. He said, Ah ha, Raj, there is no difficulty in writing them. But he said lots of
do not verify them, no deny them.
Because if you're verifying the story and saying it's 100% true, then you may be verifying something which is not true. Because the story could have been distorted. And if you deny it, you could be denying something which has remained to be the truth in the original revelation Allah gave in the Torah. So he told us that the sub the Coahuila to cut people,
don't verify them, don't deny them. Now, I put you in a bit of a difficult situation because you can carry on writing them but you're not there to actually affirm all of them. Now, the thing I want to tell you is that when you read the books have to see one of the things you have to do is look at the chains of narration within know from those stories. And what I'm going to do simply is from the story of Mrs. Rossum is cut out all these narrations because some of the narrations they kroetsch. They encroach on to certain parts where it starts to conflict with other other parts of the message that has come to us. What do I mean by them? Well, one of the things that we've got in our tradition
is that every single profit that has come they were people who
Allah had made beautiful and Allah had made such that they were beautiful, handsome gentlemen, as prophets, Allah Himself Salam who came to the world, to propagate the religion of Allah azza wa jal, and the only way they would be able to do it is that people would be able to see them in a way that is, you know, completely, you know, completely normal as human to human, you know, if they saw a human being that is that is in a situation that puts them off, or makes them run away from that human being, then there's a big question, how can that person be a prophet? So from those narrations, one of those narrations is that from the Israeli generation, the ones that were not
supposed to confirm or deny, one of those narrations is that evaluation of Salam was afflicted himself on his body so much to the extent that they were there were certain You know, there are certain creatures on his body eating away into his skin, that are kind of like maggots or other things like all over his body, and he was living like that fall in that situation for so long. Now, when you kind of, you know, think about that, you think if you saw a man and he's got all these creatures over his body, eating you know, small insects or maggots whatever they might be eating into his skin or his body,
you know, you kind of feel filed, you kind of feel that, that kind of person, I wouldn't even want to, like be near and want to run away. Now, this goes against the the message, or against the principle that has come down to us, which is prophet alayhi salatu salam will not be in a situation where others will run away. So we can't really accept the narration. And therefore, there are many different iterations that I've come across, where they explain the situation, how he lost his wealth, and how he got to the situation and how he got afflicted in his whole body got afflicted, but to be honest with you, because the Quran hasn't got he hasn't gone into that into all of those
in any detail, or even, but I mentioned them briefly. We don't need to go into those into those stories. But what we need to mention is what's actually in the Quran, which is, usually Salaam Salaam. One of the things Allah says in Isaiah number 41, is what I've done, I do remember myself as a humanity. Now Subhana Allah The beauty about this is that you know this word was God. Remember, Allah mentioned about the many messengers at the same rate like later on in number 45? Allah says, both good or bad and evil Rahim what is hard, why aku ad will absorb remember? Remember my servants, Ibrahim, his heart, Yaqoob and so on. Now, what's beautiful about this is just for us to mention or
to remember or to think about a prophet alayhi wa salatu salam to contemplate and think about what they actually went through his reward, and it is a bad it is worship. So if you actually sit down and think Subhana Allah How did you know like,
you know, he went through such difficult you just thinking about that. That is actually reward because it's, it's fulfilling a command of Allah in the Quran. And then Allah says, in other words, when he cried out to his Lord when he called out to his door now, this word nada is different from da da is just to call someone, just anyone's names that come here, you know, just quoting someone. Nada. When you say nada, there's a,
there's a kind of a connotation of you really wanting them, really wanting them. Okay, there's a kind of a yearning in that call. So when Allah says Raja curry, Allah salam, calling Allah when a prophet calls Allah, and he uses the word nada, it's like, you know, that they're quoting your yard I'll be, I'll be, I'll be, I'll be my Lord, my Lord, my lord.
I really want you I really want you to hear my call, and so on. So it's different from just saying, you know, grubby metal. So there's a yearning in the know that you really really wanting them to get their attention or to, to, you know, ask them to listen to you. So Allah says, remember the time when you were a salon, he called on to his Lord, and He was in rugby and said, he said, according to this part of the Quran in surah, number 41, Macedonia Shay upon ministry,
the shape on has touched me or afflicted me with pain and punishment. Okay, this is in 41. And in the other part of the Quran in surah, ambia
surah number 21. And number 83. When he called on this load, he said my Sania guru, and Dr. hamre affliction has been following me while you are the Most Merciful of those who have mercy
Now let's deal with this AI in pseudo mbfs, then we'll come to the other one. What are you calling Surat Salam is saying is that our law, you know, I have got into a situation where I am in total loss.
When you are in a situation where you're in, you're always giving and you're always having mercy on others and you're not only having mercy, you have so much mercy that nobody can ever compete with you in your mercy. So, while you have got the greatest of gain, I have got a great loss and the one who is so lost is calling the one who has got so much gain. So can you see the contrast in this beautiful? What exactly you know what is actually depicted in this is, you see a an individual who is in so much need so much need of mercy. And he's calling one, the being Allah azza wa jal, who has so much mercy to give and to our hamara Iman, now, these words when you use these words to Allah,
it's likely that Allah mercy will shower sooner. Why? Because you kind of make any sound to allow Allah, you've got so much mercy, so much mercy that the mercy is encompassing the whole of the world and everyone around and here I am asking you for your mercy. You know, there's so much look for so much, you know,
so much of very intense kind of a beauty in these words, and intense kind of,
you know, a closeness in these words. Now, Rama have said that if a person is afflicted with ill health,
a person is afflicted with ill health. This is a wonderful draw to make. Robbie and me my Sania booboo and
just carry on repeating them, Robbie, and me, my son you Masonic guru will
find that any sign number 83 of surah number 21. So this is specific to do with anyone who's got affliction in their body is that start work and not only body you can use this for family because he was already afflicted with his family and he was afflicted with losing his wealth and so on. Now, this is this was in Surah ambia as for surah Saad, which is Surah number 38. And number 41. Here, he uses the words, Macedonia, Shay Barbados, Grenada, the shavon has afflicted me with or touched me, or had had a had a way of getting to me with Newsfield one other by by causing pain and causing punishment. Now what did I mean by this? Because, um, we are living with salatu salam, they don't
have shaytaan come near them.
They don't have shaper, just like me, and you might have the shaytan coming inside us and giving us what's wasa and telling us, you know, things, things that, you know, make us doubt and so on, they don't have that. So what did this mean? This, you know, there are many stories around this, but the beautiful, the story that I that I found is that
basically shaped on through the tongues of others, through the tongues of others, started to cause some pain to a una sudarsan so one of the things was that shaytaan even, you know, you know, like, let's say for example, his wife is the only one that is looking after him. So though the Navy doesn't get direct was suasana from a shutdown, the Navy or the profit is free from that Allah saves a profit from the shutdown in that manner. But the wife that is actually serving him she can have the shaytan come to her and she can have the devil giving her whispers inside it because she's, she's an ordinary human being. So what happens is that she starts to talk and she says, you know,
you've been calling Allah for so long, you know, a time that we saw some kind of, you know, we saw some some of the drawers answered or something so, you know, some kind of words from his from his wife or even others around that a man might even made a comment about him which we find in some of these durations. It causes you as a person pain to hear that when you know yourself that the you know that that's inshallah, one day you're going to go through some kind of Allah will give you some relief. And the pain here is that the shaytan will still try to make you
you know make you feel down even though you're already quite down the shape and will try and make you feel further down. Now what will happen to normal person in a situation
cases they will get direct was for sale? And the shaytan will say to them, Look, see, you've been calling Allah also, you know, where's your faith? I mean, how can this all be true? And you've been going through this for so long, and I don't see anyone else going through all of this wise, and he won't say, you know, the time Showtime just says me inside your mind. He's sitting there with me, because I've gone through this for so long. Why me? Why not him? He's been, you know, why not her. She's been through so much bad stuff, and I haven't even done anything. And I don't deserve all of this. And now it makes our time what it does to us weakens you, you seriously weakens you and it
questions your faith in knocks on the door, those of your faith. Now, of course with
that wasn't the case. But he turned to Atlanta said, The devil is still trying, the devil is still trying to get to you by salon salon with pain and with punishment, because the more that devil talks to others and goes into them whispers into them and the more of a situation that gets created around him where he's left completely on his own, the more of that that happens, then it is a punishment to a person it is you know, kind of a pain to a person. So what we understand another thing, beautiful thing that the alumni have mentioned here is that he actually turned to Allah and he said, he mentioned the devil, he said that the devil is the one that is trying to cause me pain. And that is
trying to cause me punishment in this situation. Now for one of us to turn to Allah and to talk about our situation and say, you know, the shaytan is trying to do this to me, or I found that in my life that this difficulty, that difficulty of mentioning the means on the earth, which might be the devil of somebody else has called me punishment. There's nothing wrong with that. Although we ultimately know that all tests and all, you know, tests or trials come from Alaska with them. Now, what happens is that he remains in this for a whole entire 18 years. And during that period, his wife is coming to him every single day and she's serving him and his wife actually serves him more
so because they obviously you know, husband and wife, but though everybody left Iraq, saddam had lost all his family a lot stole his wealth and everything and his wife was the only one remaining with him.
She could have also just left him
but she didn't because the seed mentions that are you Bala Salaam Salaam had been very generous towards her in the past.
And out of the great favors that I slammed it for her. She now was doing a great favor for a valet service. Now, what does this teach us? This teaches us that though you might be in any situation right now. There's no guarantee what situation we're going to be in tomorrow. Okay, so you know, the people around us.
One great thing, and the great student of the law, Hollis alum is that you be nice and you be kind to the people that are around you. You don't treat them. Now some sometimes people get money, they get power to get wealth and they start to mistreat the people around them. They start to feel big and they feel that they're above others. There's no guarantee that the gifts that we've got today will stay with us Now the great thing lesson from here is that because I Salam was already a kind individual to his wife, his wife still remain with him even though others went away from him for whatever reason.
And his wife stayed engaged in abroad food for him and bought items for him whatever he needed his his necessities every single day.
And during this time, what happened is that the SID mentions that one of one day when he you know, he's obviously in constant, you know, need of help. And one day his wife comes late,
or his wife had done something that we don't know what his wife did.
We don't know. But it must be something that was severe enough for him to say that you know, for a man of his kind, who is a prophet alayhi salatu salam, for him to be angry to the extent that he said I'm going to strike my wife I'm going to strike my wife 100 times when when I get better when I'm able to strike 100 times I'm going to do that now. That part is also mentioned the Quran we're going to deal with that I mean, what the whole thing surrounding that so
let's let's move on. So before I get to the analysis of that, please You know, don't just take that little phrase away and say you know, this man Subhan Allah you hear us talking the man talking about striking one's wife 100 times law how La quwata illa Billah already can see some brothers walking up singing that's it. That's all I needed to hear that Hello
Further. So, before I get to that, what happens is first of all Islam is calling Allah calling Allah for 18 years Allahu Akbar. And on the after 18 years, Allah azza wa jal One day, he gives him an inspiration. And imagine that for 18 years, Allah is left in that situation. This left him and he's he's kind of left me allowances for me.
This is this is all I was doing, and I'm going to accept it, I'm going to accept how allows, has, has has this whatever you decide for me and there's a beauty in that there's a beauty of a servant doing that in the time on a life flips you. And I will tell you brothers, there is nobody sitting here that hasn't been afflicted, nobody, everyone has got some kind of affliction, some kind of test that is going on their life. But there is a beauty of accepting other of Allah, this is what I evaluate him does he accept 100% how allow them to treat him and they say to the extent of what can make at Bain a de la casa, this is the utmost way, the greatest way of accepting Alaska see there
are many different levels of accepting Allah, Allah will undo the best form is the best form is what Allah Saracen did, which is what which is that you treat yourself as if you are you, you make yourself feel as if you are a dead person in front of the hands of a person in Washington a dead body.
Imagine there's a janazah and they're going to burn, you know, they're going to watch the movie or watch the deceased. When a person with his, you know, gloves, whatever he's got on, and he's going to watch this dead body, he's standing there with a dead body in front of him. That dead body can't move, that dead body is at the mercy of whoever is in front of it. And the dead body no matter how it moved, whether it's dropped, whether it's you know, whether a bone breaks inside or whether it's you know, move from one side to another side, that dead body is not going to move a single inch. And it's not going to complain, it's not going to do anything because it's dead. And they say that I
usually select is a great example of showing that level of accepting allows other meaning what that whatever affliction is in my life, if you can get to this stage is the highest state you can get to the highest stages. Whatever Allah has will for me
Let it be
of course we still got to make dua like I did this the other side you know, some people think is awkward to say well allow them to be so me that said I don't mean rk you know, hungry lady come You know, and embrace it and let it prolong. And that's not what, that's not what we look for, we still have to make dua that Allah Take me out of that situation. That's why evolution is making dua to Allah. So but at the same time, we don't complain. We don't even complete there's two kinds of complaints. There's one complaint from the tongue, which is manifest to others. And we say, Now there are people who, who, especially when there's a death in the family, sometimes you hear them
with the with the tongues, they say, you know, and I was in love with it, just to repeat for a lesson. They say that, oh, you know, why? Why did this have to happen? Why Why? Why couldn't God take somebody else?
I couldn't contact somebody else. here and you think, what am I choosing? Or if you you, he just making that comment? Why couldn't God take somebody else? What about if he was used? Right now you still have got life inside? You. Don't make comments like that. And it is wrong of us to do that. But that's one, the second one. And that's quite bad for all of us, for all of us to hear. Because you think how did he say that? But don't forget, there are many things people keep in their hearts, which are ticking when they don't bring on their tongues. Now if you come to the hearts and you remove it, there is no sin on that person. So if in your heart you come to Why did Allah do this?
And you really say No, and I can't say that that's wrong of me. You're not sinful. You're completely rewarded for that situation because you actually pushed it push that was was out of you. You push that Devil's whisper out, away from you. It's fine. But if you don't do that, if you don't fight it, and you let it Carry on, carry on, swirling through, why did you Why did
you let it Carry on, carry on inside you? You're sinful.
You're supposed to this is not accepting the color of Allah fully. Okay? And the best, as I said, is neither your tongue no your heart, nothing comes at all. You know, situation.
As a reason, you just accept the hotter of Allah however it is. And no this is from the from the people who are close to Allah azza wa jal, you carrying hearing that I have my shirt in Bangladesh, she moved to Russia when anything happens a lot, but you know, many things happen and when it happens, you know what he actually says he says, that was a lot of rebar. That was a lot of pleasure that that happens.
We don't understand why we don't understand why, but fear our little Hakim la Lu Minal hikmah, when the most wise who is Allah does something, his action is never empty of wisdom, it makes me say that again, when the most wise The one who has most wisdom allows them, when he does something, whatever he did, it will not be empty of his wisdom, meaning that there's a lot of wisdom in what he has done. So my shed often will say that, you know, there's a lot of rebar in that even though he's been afflicted, he will say, there's a lot of rebar in that we don't understand but let us accept it, let us move on. See, the other thing beautiful about it is just to move on. Not to let the mind be
captured in the time, you know, of the moment you've been affected, all these thoughts are swarming inside you, it brings you down, it weighs you down. If you can just get up and say whether Alaska Alaska you know, whatever, let's build I'm making dua to Allah, Allah, please take me out. And you look at the future, and you hope of getting out of it, but not look at your past of how long you've been in the affliction. And what is going on, that is a movement that is believing that that's what I believe is supposed to do. So here is a evaluation of Salaam for 18 years and then suddenly aligned spies to him after 18 years old, who could very easily
strike the ground with your leg or your foot. So are you well, so let me just sitting down and he strikes the you know, he kicks the ground with his foot or with the heel of his of his foot, when he is when he strikes the ground like that. Up comes to fountains
cold to fountains come up. And Allah says to him, had a mocha saloon burrito Mashallah this is this is a, this is a fountain or these are fountains that I'm giving you that are cold and for you to drink. Now what happens is with one of them, he puts the water the cold water onto his onto his body, what was actually wrong with his body? Well, the best we can say and again, I'm trying to stay away from these strike eliminations, the best we can say is he had some kind of something to do with his skin that was irritating him that was giving him pain in his in his body. Some have said that he was under his skin. So when you look at his skin, his skin was completely natural and fine. But
under his skin, he had something some upset, it was kind of like a rash, or something else that was making him feel very irritated. And, and a lot of pain all the time all around his body. But whatever it was, it wasn't something that would make people look at him and want to run away from him. So Allah said, Take this cold water and put it over your body. And when he did, Allah cooled him and remove the situation that was you know, that whatever disease, whatever illness he had for his skin, that was that was cured automatically. From the second fountain Allah said, drink from that, so he drank from that and then he found that inside, he found the coolness that made him feel
very relaxed, and he it kind of fixed his inside. Now, from this, what we understand to Allah is that if people out there have got certain problems with their skins, Allah has definitely see what one thing we understand is that anytime Allah has put a
condom kind of illness on the on this earth, there's always a cure that comes with it. This is in Hades, there is no illness on this earth or comes, but a cure come with it.
But when a last punishment, Allah wants to punish people, for long for something that they've done. He will not make them discover the cure, but after a very long time, because he wants the people to go through whatever they've gone through. So today, we've got certain illnesses on the earth. I'm not going to mention them. I'm sure many of you know what they are. Because if I mentioned them, this can be the Oh my God is saying that this is you know, this is Allah punishment on these people. So now I'm not gonna mention that but there are illnesses on the earth.
To which we haven't found a cure yet, it doesn't mean that there isn't a cure, but it means Allah is delaying humankind of finding the cure, for whatever reason, okay, but the cure is always there, it's always there. The other thing we find is that with this skin problem that he had, there is a kind of a beautiful thing from the water, what's the water, the water was from a fountain, a fountain coming from underneath the ground, from underneath, and beneath the ground, there are many rich minerals that are in those fountains. And I would, I would love, you know, some experiment, you know, some scientists that are out there to experiment, the different minerals of water to different
diseases of skins, to do with skin, and so on. It would be wonderful if somebody could carry out research and see which minerals actually have what effect on you know, for the for the cure of whatever skin illness somebody might have, it would be wonderful, because whenever the Quran, Allah gives this, whenever the Quran says something like this, it's giving us a massive chapter of hope of the earth, and a great relief of the earth. You know, I'll tell you one.
One thing, which is amazing, this is just the thing that happened last 20 2030 years. And this is one of those, there's one, one of the
one of those people in the Emirates who was who was in the in the hierarchy of the Emirates government. And he actually just thought of one idea. He pondered over one idea, and then put it into practice, which actually became a big boom in today's world. What do I mean by that? Well, he he thought of the desire a lot, a lot of them just say these things for the sake of saying these things. Okay? Every single thing that was mentioned as a reason, if you dig deep enough, you'll find something, something great behind it. So look at this iron, man, suit number 21.
Number 30. Allah says, What Jonathan an equal shake in height. From water, we made everything living, we brought life to everything from water, we gave life to everything from water. So he was just thinking about that. And he's thinking, hmm, the desert around me, the sand around me is dead.
I wonder if I carry on putting water over it and wardrobe with the wardrobe or the weather, it's likely become something that would bring out life. And he tested it. He got he got a patch of land that was completely dry. And he was deserty. And he kept on putting water water every single day on it. As you know, after days or weeks or months, I don't know years, he found that that land that he could walk on every single day turn to become flourishing land. So now what he did is he actually started to build entire spaces on you know, basically where there was water, they put a lot of sand on there. And from there, they put a lot of water, water, natural water and and now they're growing
land again, above where there was water, even whether it's a desert part where there's no water, they're putting water over it again and again and they're making flourishing lands. And it was from this ayah that he pondered over it and then he came to that conclusion and that great discovery. So anyway, the fountain itself on the mineral itself gauging belief from the outside and from the inside and then Allah says, what will happen Allahu Allahu Allah says I gave him his entire family back.
Allah gave him a new entire family all grown again and and all became you know, wonderful now the children that he had before and the offspring he had before all of that Allah return. And lesson one Miss la Houma home. And similar to that I gave him an extra Mata Mina Indira from my mercy. All of this was the Corolla, Odin Alba. And for those who have deep thought, this is a reminder for you. So last telling us that whenever we're in an affliction, we're asking Allah asking Allah asking ALLAH, there's two, there's two consequences. Either you will in this world, get back what you've lost, or you will get to the next life and you will get much better than what you lost on this earth. And one
of the beautiful things Allah says about Subbu in particular,
is this is sort of Zuma. Number 39, verse number 10. There is nothing greater than this in terms of reward in the whole of the Quran. Like for example, if you think about somebody,
you can think about somebody who's reading the Koran, and they say, Alif Lam, Meem they'll get 30 rewards. They say Valiquette will get another 40 rewards, okay? It's measured. And if you say, you know, somebody walked into
The Masjid each time they take a step one, one sin is taken away each time they take another step again, one reward is given to them. It's measured, measured reward lies given. The one thing great thing about civility is and this is in the Quran
in sign number 10, of suta 39, in your first saw the Runa eduroam visa deficit, those people who are who have suffered or who have patients within them, their reward is given to them without any limit.
There's no limit to what to what I give them. So basically, on the day of judgment, they come, when everybody else gets, you know, 100 million 10 million and 10,002,546 for this thing, they just get and they get, and they get, and they get, and they get an endless amount of reward. And that is for the people who can actually have server. And also lots of a lot has been said in code 100, that there's nothing greater a man is given than having server is one, it's very difficult to maintain that for a long time, to have server to have patience to hold, withhold yourself, not to complain, not to you know, bring things out of your mouth, that you shouldn't at the same time doing what you
should do, like
Sam was giving you know, he's doing all his worship. At the same time he's doing all of his worship, he wasn't complaining, he was doing his worship, and You know, he kept hold of himself. That is what it is. Now while
a UBI Salam was having he was bathing
while he was bathing. And and you know, in, you know, fulfilling the command of Allah azza wa jal.
Allah azza wa jal dropped on him. This is a hadith in Ahmed and it's a hadith in Bukhari as well. A lot dropped on him. locusts, made of pure gold,
locusts that dropped on him, made of pure gold. These weren't like locusts that would you know, harm you or that would you know, fly off or whatever. These were actual golden locusts that Allah had just dropped and showered on him while he was showering with the water, so what did he do, he took his
one of his one of his clothes. And he starts to gather these locusts and put them into his clothing, so that he could gather more and while he's gathering that allows, we'll call on to him, or a caller called on to him whichever way we could mean that a lot directly called on to him or means that he called an angel to call on to him, saying that Oh, are you is not enough that you've you've collected from these golden locusts. And he says, a beautiful thing to align with our law, I can never get enough of your blessing Allah, I can never get enough of your bark and the blessing and he kept on collecting them allowable. And this is this is another extra blessing that Allah gave to him
above the other other blessings of having the fountains and relieving himself of his illness.
Then the next verse, And Number 44, discusses it says, well, who would be a ticket Delta now what happened is he remember that remember his wife, for whatever reason, we don't know. There must be a serious reason why he made the statement. And you know, and they say in the books of the CDC out of anger, he did say to her that he's, you know, with he's going to strike 100 times. Now if he's going to strike or 100 times and that that is you know, in terms of what we think right now is going to be something that is severe now you think about this, if you think about the next thing that I'm going to say he's made that statement, he's now got to do that because he said he will definitely do that
he took the name of a law so the law when I get when I get better, I'm going to do this. Now allows Allah didn't have to mention any of this in the Quran, but it's a great beauty of being mentioning this in the Quran. He tells a you Bala Salaam he says, who would be a deacon Delta. Allah says in the Quran and number 44 of Saud number 38. He says take in your hand 100 scrolls.
Now these are thin, flimsy straws, long straws, maybe from you know, from spork or something from corn or whatever it is. Take straws. 100 straws, okay. 100 of them, tie them together, put them together. Because he said he's going to lash his or he's going to hit his wife or strike his wife 100 times. Allah says take 100 scrolls and just hit her once. If you take long 100 scrolls altogether, which are just basically very, you know, just waving in the air as you move them then they're not they're not something that is nice, not something that is hard and it's not going to hurt anyone a lot. Tell them to take 100 at once and just
just strike very gently
It is tougher very generally. Okay, so that's what he did a lot, a lot to do this. If it did be well enough.
I want you to complete your promise that you made in my name, but I don't want to break your promise.
And so Harlan Lau, why did Allah mention all of this? Why?
A, Allah is trying to show us that even when you out of your anger, whatever you made a statement or when you let's say, for example, you're angry with your wife, you don't necessarily need to carry it out. Okay? And be when somebody is even striking. You don't need to strike in a way that you're harming or hurting someone. This was a gesture for him to show that he is in no way going to harm his wife, but he just adjusted to keep his promise going. Now again, what I need to mention here is souhan Allah, what Allah is teaching us through a prophet is a man does not need to any should not harm his wife. That's what the Quran is telling us. And there's no there's no need for a person to
go to the extent of harming their wife. Okay. Even though the Quran has said in sudo, Su, Su, the full and the 34 there is the word in there.
But again, there's a lot of to see under that ayah and this is a beautiful way of understanding how Allah has turned the situation where a man wanted to strike his wife 100 times instead of Allah, allow him to carry on doing that Allah made him take 100 gentle straws, you know, really sort of straws that we're not going to harm her at all. And just to tap her gently with that. And to finish the whole matter really, what Allah is showing us again, is that there needs to be understanding and there needs to be a way of people not turning situation into violence, not to turn something where other the harm, but to defuse the whole situation. And that is what Allah has taught us in the Quran
about evolution. And there's another beautiful thing about this, which is the part of us hailer. So he said he was going to strike his wife 100 times it will be 1234560 200. Instead of that Allah says, Take 100 straws, and do once generally, meaning that you've now instead of saying that you said you will hit 100 so if you hit 101 go the same as hitting one 100 times. What does this mean? This means that Allah is teaching us that wherever you can get to any failure or any goodness through a form of trickery, it's hard. But if you get into something evil or taking someone's right away through some form of trickery, that is not that is not halala we will discuss this in under the
story of use of Allah Salah about about trickery, so I won't go into them. Okay, now, are you valid salam, salam, he gets all his gifts back, he gets all the things that he was he he had lost from Allah azza wa jal. What I want to say to you and myself is many of us listen to this. We're still in affliction. We haven't got back what we wanted to get back. What a lie is telling us is eventually whichever way it is, Allah will reward us for the affliction that we went through. And that's how that's that's the bottom line. We have got efficient, we've got, you know, a situation we're going through, we should not put ourselves down and think the worst about what's going on around us or
that Allah azza wa jal, we shouldn't and they're our brothers sometimes, you know, they break up to me and they tell me they say, you know, Sheriff, I'm not going to lie to you. You know, I haven't got these thoughts in my mind. And that come to me now, the thing is, if you've got thoughts coming in your mind, as long as you fight it, you've got pure emotion.
You know, when we're in a situation, the shutdown will come and he will, he will strike. Like Sahaba the Allahabad mind, they came to the province of alarmism and they actually said, messenger of Allah, we find thoughts in our minds, we would rather not tell you, we don't want to say these things, what comes in our minds.
To the extent they said we would rather be burned ashes than to utter the words of the, you know, whispers of the shaitaan that come into our minds, these whispers of the shaitaan about Allah and His Messenger about the truth about taqwa and putting doubts in the heart to shake the doubts about all that. And when a person is weak, the shaytan has the advantage over a person to put that in their mind. So did Rasulullah sallallahu turn around and say, you know, tell me what they are telling me what your doubts are. Let me deal with your doubts. He didn't
He simply asked one question, and that's the question I want you to ask yourself. He said, Do you find yourselves fighting those thoughts that occur in your mind? They said, Yes, of course martial law, we fight them. Basically, you're struggling against that. You say, No, no, no, it can't be true. No, it's not true. No Ally's true. And you know, the prophet is true and the Quran is true and whatever is coming to mind is not true. You know, do you find yourself fighting against those thoughts that occurred in your mind? And they said, Yes, I mentioned of Allah He then said that my goal is he man he said, therefore, this is a clear sign and evidence that you have shoe email. You
have 100% organic email, there's nothing impure about it. That's enough. Don't Don't tell a person I'll tell you all your doubts I don't want to hear what's happening in your mind and oh my god, I'm gonna try to find it the next you know, answer for this doubt and lambda, don't go down the line. I mean, if somebody is getting the same doubt and they come to the man and the man deals with it, that's different. Okay. But if you find someone like that, who's got a doubtless occurring in their mind? This ask them are you fighting it as long as they're fighting it? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam has given you the certificate that you are a pure believer, and you've got pure belief inside
you. And that is enough. So anyway, that was the story of
IU barley syrup syrup, and there's a little bit of mention of little careful alehissalaam and then next week, we're going to move on to Moosa and Harun ra Hema salatu salam, so about very careful, very, very briefly, his name is mentioned in the Quran, and his name is mentioned alongside his smile Idris and so on. aleikum wa salatu salam, surah, ambia ayah, number 85. And number 86. where Allah says what is Mariela irisa? Well give Amina savini is married Idris, Luke, if all three of them were from the, from those who actually have sovereign who are patients. And then again, another mention is pseudo sod is number 48. Allah says what's good is smile, remember his smile, remember,
Yes, I remember the look of all of them were from the chosen ones. So he he shares the quality of having some of the qualities of being chosen. An athlete means the best also they were the best. So he has the best qualities in him. And what they say is that
a little careful, his name was was Bishop but Allah had mentioned Allah had called him a little careful because he had careful means to take on a responsibility. So what did little careful do little careful took the responsibility of being absolutely obedient for Allah sake. And he fulfilled that responsibility that he took on himself and that's why his name is a little careful The one who took up the responsibility otherwise his his name was something else. And again, the Quran hasn't given any mention of anything to do with his life whether it's in brief form or an extended form and therefore that is enough for us to know that he was mentioned as part of these people under the
beauty in what when Allah does that Why? Why would Allah mention dual kephale in an ayah where he's got other prophets so he's got a smiley 70 smiley some story is mentioned and in the analysis is Mary and will capable they are from the people of Southern and another great place Allah Allah who Medina and I put all of them is married in anybody's I'm gonna give all of them in my Rama in my mercy. Allah says in whom in a solid hain all of them were from the the righteous and the pious. Why would Allah mention that one name little carefully without even giving us his story or anything? And you know why? Because your name could be something and you sitting here right now.
Your name could be Abdullah your name could be Mahmoud your name could be whatever you sitting here right now.
When Ilan mentioned a prophet alayhi salatu salam and his story is my lesson I said Look, look at it. Look at it. Look how wonderful he was. It gives a description about him. Next to him he mentioned this name Bill kephale. Allah says don't careful is the same as a smile in terms of summer and goolka. Phil has also got my rough man My Mercy and also he was a pious person like his smile without mentioning the details of a little careful. You know what allies do? Allah saying you Abdullah, you must have you Mahmoud you whoever you are. When you do the same as these prophets, you will be the sorry.
You will be manasi you will be the Salafi you'll be resurrected amongst them you will be with them. You You will be with them in terms of reward or you will be with them in terms of
Being with them on the Day of Judgment Allahu Akbar. That is a great thing because there will be people on this earth know the kinds of things you've gone through. And I'm the one that you relate to if you relate to the ambia and you're trying to follow them as examples and you like them you love them. prophets Allah Horace Mann said Allah Muhammad, a man who will be whom He loves you know who you idolize in this world you will be with them on the Day of Judgment if you idolize the prophets as an idealized the wrong word because it almost means that you're worshipping them we don't worship them but what I'm trying to say you get what I'm trying to say is that you're trying
to look up at them you think wow, you know, I want to be like them. If you look at the prophets and you want to be like them, then inshallah Milan the Day of Judgment, you will be with them. And that is that is one of the greatest, you know, mercies of Allah azza wa jal. So anyway, is there any other Any questions before we have there been?
Any questions about Eva Salaam, his life or anything? Oh, yes.
He is a prophet Allah insha. Allah.
Okay, Lulu kiefel was a prophet, Allah alayhi salatu salam, he was one of the 25 prophets. That is accepted. That is part of the profits. There are some mention of some individuals in the Quran. They are not prophets. One of them is Luqman. And there's other individuals that will have named Volker name is an individual that they say he wasn't a prophet. But he was a pious, individual little careful is one of those that the scholars are clear that he was of the prophets because his name is mentioned between the prophets. So when Allah says what is smiler whether al Qaeda or Idris are well, careful or next to the Prophet, he mentioned them, they have to be prophets. Okay, whereas
guru can name or other individuals dimensions separately independently from any other profits. Okay. Any other question?
Any other question?
Whether you're struggling with
you have no more fighting.
Any other questions?
handlers even better. Right so so the brothers saying what about if you don't find any words for succumbing to yourself and, you know, fighting Alhamdulillah that, you know, all of us at some point, we're going to get worse wasa. And the beautiful thing that Allah say is that if you get worse, wasa in a one good way, it's a good sign. Why? Because a thief does not go to a house where there is no goods.
A thief will only go to a house where there's goods so she thought it will only go to give waspa whether the believer
there is no point of going to a person who's got no belief. I'm going messing him up. He's already messed up. And exactly
and have you
