b2b

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

one to

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

many

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

hamdulillah alameen wa salatu salam ala Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi

00:00:26--> 00:00:30

Firstly, to the brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:33--> 00:00:43

Now, we are going to start another profit this week. And hopefully this week we should be able to finish this profit. It's Yunus alayhi salatu salam.

00:00:44--> 00:01:04

So we don't know exactly when he was sent, but he was sent with, amongst a sort of time period of perhaps banners right or some time, but he was not really connected to to them in any way. He was alayhi salatu salam, he was from a town or a city

00:01:05--> 00:01:38

where we know a rock today as a as a town, Mosul, and indeed is a town there for me anyway. And from there was universal in Sarasota. So this was a center of trade. And it became a place where it became a place where many people flocked there to try and bring goods, sell goods, take goods and so on. And you know, where you get cities Normally, you know, we need to learn from history where you get cities, you normally get sin as well, because people normally,

00:01:39--> 00:02:18

wherever there's a lot of buying and selling and trade going on, people Unfortunately, because of the dunia because of the world, they start to remove themselves from the remembrance of Allah and that brings a darkness over the heart and over time, they kind of you know, stay distant from the religion and we're not saying everybody in the city but you know, it normally happens if you compare a village or outsiders from a city busy area, you will find normally the city people can have that. But again, then again, see the people can also be very religious as well. Okay, so we're not saying that they're not religious, but in Universalist salons city. What happened is that many of them,

00:02:19--> 00:02:49

were now disobeying Allah azza wa jal, and they were sending him and it was in fact, they didn't even believe in Allah they were worshipping many idols. Now, unlike other stories, where the focus was on the worshipping of the idols because he bragged when I saw him story you see a lot of it to do with straight to do with idols, no holy Salam is a lot to do with the focus on the idol idol worshipping and the forefathers have told them how to continuously worship these idols. So unlike that, what happens in this

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

story is Allah azza wa jal, he doesn't go into that he goes straight into

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

to two things he wants us to focus on.

00:03:00--> 00:03:51

One is universalized. And how he was hasty. And the lesson for us is not to become hasty. Okay, so that that's one thing that we receive. And the second is, and probably most importantly, the second part is that the comb or the people of Eunice Allah, Islam, they were perhaps the rare people who believed in Allah, even though they denied the prophet and they said, you know, we're not going to believe in you. And I gave him a very hard time. But before the punishment of a liking, they actually became believers and ally removed the punishment away. So this is unusual, because most of the nations that Allah talks about in the Quran, they actually received the punishment.

00:03:53--> 00:04:23

And here's an exception. And the big lesson for us here is that no matter how bad you are, you've always still got a chance until the punishment or until death on to whatever it is arrives. So even if the punishment is near to engulf you, and you turn to Allah with toga and repentance, you're still okay. And that that's a big lesson and Allah tells us that what what why would I want to punish you? Allah tells us that in the Holy Quran, the

00:04:24--> 00:04:29

I he says my father loves to be either become in Chicago

00:04:31--> 00:04:36

a lot Laszlo just says this isn't the end of the fifth juice of the of the Quran.

00:04:38--> 00:04:56

My follow up of adding sugar to McCann Allahu Shakira malema, this is iron number 147 of Sudanese so Sudanese which is four and then 147 is the ayah Allah says what why would allow one to punish you. If you show gratitude and if you believe

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

what kind of low Shakira Malema lies

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

Much appreciating of the deeds and the good good things that you do and Allah is well knowledgeable of the things that you that you are doing. So this tells us that Allah is not you know many unfortunately kind of make a almost like you know it seems like now we like now the law is is there to punish servers if they don't do this if they don't do that but that's not our deal it is wrong to put it like that a law does not want to punish us and this is this is the

00:05:33--> 00:06:11

this the whole story that tells us that Look, I don't want to punish and what we have here is that you do Sally's around he he's tells them for many many many years on that will stop worshipping these idols listen to myself I'm a prophet that have been sent to you and the people just don't they just don't budge. They just don't want to listen. And they like all of the profits they made mockery of him they gave him a very hard time they told him what are you talking about? even said okay don't bring the punishment go on. Let's see where is it? We don't see it like all other you know, Allah says the universal thing that happened every time messenger came there was mockery every time they

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

came. There were threats and every time they came they were the question like okay, Bring it on, bring it on. Let's see where is it? So what happens in this case is

00:06:21--> 00:06:34

so let me give you the the reverse and then from there we'll start the story. What happens in this case is that you know, Salah Salah Salaam he starts to get feelings inside him that

00:06:36--> 00:07:24

this is this is not right. And Allah punishment is going to come and Allah Allah azza wa jal had revealed to Eunice la Salaam that punishment is going to be on its way. So we'll go to student number 37 and number 139 Allah says we're in a unison Amina move slowly. And surely Eunice was from the messengers, and us ally Salaam gave his Dharma for a number of years. And he felt that this is it. We've got a situation here we are I was going to bring his punishment about, I told him, Look, if you don't believe us, punishment is going to come it's going to come imminently like within the next days is going to come. And the people still thought What's he talking about? Now? You know, so

00:07:24--> 00:08:20

So at that point, what he does, and this is where the whole focus of the start story starts from? Where in Surah MBs to number 21 I am number 87. We get a reference of units on a Salam Allah says well then Mooney is they have a mohawk river, that the the the one of the fish codes in the Companion of the fish, meaning that universalism eventually ends up in the belly of this large fish with a noon Eunice is that Obama was when he left his people in a state of mutual anger. Mahadevan is used now vardaman would mean that he's angry. But Mahadevan would mean that there is a mutual which means that his people were fed up with him. And he was also angry in the sense that he was

00:08:20--> 00:08:57

angry for the sake of Allah. He wasn't angry because Oh, okay. These people have listened to me. Okay, fine. I'm angry with them as well. You know, it's personal. It's not there was nothing personal. The tafsir say that it was more or even the lobby, which means that his anger was for the sake of Allah. And his anger wasn't because that he's, he's now going to say, okay, fine, you guys could have had enough of you you just die, you run the punishment comes just gonna kill you. No, it wasn't. It was the fact that he knew the punishment is on its way. So now he thought he will leave the his people before the punishment arrives. But he made a mistake. Okay, now we call this a

00:08:57--> 00:09:41

mistake. This is not a sin in any way whatsoever. And none of the prophets have ever committed a sin, or have anything to do with sin. This is a mistake. The mistake was in his mind, he thought that Allah has given him is given him the ability to choose when he wants to leave the city, or what he should have realized from all the other revelations in the past because all prophets knew about knowledge. They knew about Iran or the people or the past, they knew about the prophets that came before him. And there's a universal rule that Allah has with the messengers, that they will trust him to tell them when they should make the move. So even la Salaam, he waits to the law tells him

00:09:41--> 00:09:56

the time when he can, he can get onto the ark, and then he gets all of his people onto the ark and animals onto the ark and then he he leaves, he waits for the command, even with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. The same thing happens where on one occasion the province of Allah has made his mistake.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

It was the time of her davia when he saw

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

Dream he's going to prove he his dream he was performing Amara with his companions 1400 of them and the prophets of Allah has we're very excited. Six years they haven't they hadn't seen Mecca and Medina and the prophecy wasn't seen his dream from Medina and ECOWAS combined itself you get your get your ramen will go to hombre because I've seen his dream, again he was a mistake, a mistake was he should have waited for Allah to give him permission to leave. And Allah taught, Allah teaches them a lesson on their level. And with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam his his

00:10:35--> 00:10:41

camel came all the way up to her baby a place outside Makkah and he would not go forward at all. And there's a

00:10:42--> 00:11:07

whole revelation from the again, it's not the time to go into that. But we'll come back to us I said I'm where he feels that he can leave. And he forgot that he should wait for Allah's command that he leaves. So he leaves and he has this, you know, he's shocked at these people. How can these people you know, sometimes when you give him down for years and years and years, you just can't believe how is it that these people can't see the truth?

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

And you think, well, I've tried my best and you get so frustrated while he was in the situation and in a hasty way he left.

00:11:19--> 00:11:56

But there was a second part which was he left but he also had in his mind a belief. The belief was that he would not be in any way restricted by Allah. Okay. Now, for one Allah naka de la, he had full conviction or he was very certain in himself, that Allah Nakata, Allah now you can say in some translation will say that he thought we had no power over him. Now, that would be that would be blasphemous to say, that would be the wrong translation. The translation of this is that humans are a certain soul that Allah would not restrict him.

00:11:57--> 00:12:35

Why Allah would not restrict him through any bad fate, through any other which is going to put him and pull him back. Now we all know Allah has given us Qatar is given a state in the future Some things are good written for us. And some things are, you know, unfortunate cases that are in front of us. Now you lose horizon almost certain that with his life with what he had done with all the data he gave to his people with the life and character that he had, now there would no way be any restriction that will be placed onto him. This was just a good thought in his mind. But little did he know that Allah was going to restrict him and Allah was going to put him into a test.

00:12:36--> 00:13:31

So what happens then is this this is in Surah 2187 and then in another part of the Quran, Allah says in it number 140 of surah number 37. So the sofar law says even ever lol fully killed Mishcon when you use Li Salaam he ran away like a slave runs away without the permission of his master. Now luck could have said here many different words he could have used many words he he could have said Fonterra haba and so on that he just fled he ran away what he could have, he could have just said but he didn't. He said ABA now ABA is used in Arabic only when do you want to say that a slave has left the master without permission to leave? So it's like a will absolutely that leave LLC will kill

00:13:31--> 00:14:07

mushroom Where did he go? Well you know Salah Salaam he left his people he left his city and he thought well I'm going to I'm going as far as work as I can away from the city because the punishment of Allah is going to come to the city. So he went he went he went and he found by me went to the near the seaside and he finds that there's a good big ship that is boarded fully boarded people. And they see you know, salad salad and they see is beautiful, you know, because all prophets were sent in with a beautiful, handsome face and they see this beautiful man looks very pious. And they and they know that he's a nice man and say look, would you like to you on a journey with us and

00:14:07--> 00:14:22

us as well? Okay, let me let me sell across. Let me get away from the land as far as I can. Okay, so he gets onto the onto this full, fully loaded ship like people are all it's not like a few sailors here, the whole ship is full.

00:14:24--> 00:14:34

And then first what what happens is as they go into the sea, everything was fine. The day was calm, everything was fine, until the nighttime came.

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

When the night came and the documents prevailed.

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

All of a sudden they found themselves in a very difficult situation.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

When started to increase the speed, and the several winds blowing from all directions, the sea started to surge. The there was a lot of turbulence and there was a storm

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Above and everything was brewing above. Now the sailors thought that, you know, the sailors were people who were also good people.

00:15:08--> 00:15:48

And they said, Look, whenever this has happened, it's always happened because somebody who's on the ship has done something which they shouldn't have done. So therefore, what we'll do is we'll take everybody's name, quickly, write the names down, put it into a, something, whatever it was a container, and we will draw lots, and whoever's name comes out, he better leadership. And we've always done this. Okay, we've always done this. And we've always seen that whoever has done the wrong thing. If his name comes up, you better leave the ship in the middle of the sea. Yeah, basically means that you just walk off the plank, whatever you want to call it, yeah, jump off

00:15:48--> 00:16:13

board, and the rest of us will be saved. And they said, This is what we sailors have always done, and it's always worked for us. So they take everybody's name, they put it together, and Allah says in number 141, number 37. He says fissara hammer a cannon would have him now. things get worse for us and Isola. One bad news was that his people are not believing and Alas, punishment is coming.

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

Another bad thing is that now he's in a storm.

00:16:17--> 00:16:24

The third bad thing is that when they put all these names together and they pull out a name whose name comes out it's Yunus.

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

Now when they say they saw that they thought, No, no, no, no, no, no some

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

something's gone wrong.

00:16:32--> 00:16:45

How can this pious wonderful man who's got a brilliant history be the one who's done something wrong? Let's put it together again. So they mix it all up again. They took the name

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

and bad news again you know Sam's name comes up a second time

00:16:54--> 00:17:14

and now the people are also you know, thinking well what is going on here The storm is not stopping right any moment they're going to capsize and that's it all of them will be finished off all of them probably will be dead in the middle of the sea at nighttime with winds blowing like this there's probably no chance of survival

00:17:16--> 00:17:29

and they say no way no way can we let's just try try once more and they they put the name back in and they mix it all up and they take they take out the name and again To their surprise is universe

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

now the chances of a full ship you think about it

00:17:34--> 00:17:43

for us Allah salam to stand there the chances that a full ship we don't know how many Allah says the word mushroom means that is full

00:17:44--> 00:17:59

there's a lot of people on board everyone's name was taken for your name to appear once and then appear again and again again consecutively three times with all those names the chances are very low. Universal I ceram reflected that

00:18:01--> 00:18:41

there's got to be something beyond this. And he thought to himself well you know what, let these people at least let these people at least have the best of their thoughts for the future by me leaving this boat because if I don't need this boat now and there's some Karazhan then they'll the fingers will point to him that your name came up three times another man went off the board of the ship because the fourth time imagine they did that not that it happened to imagine a fourth one was pulled out and some innocent guy went and jumped up and the storm is still not stopping they would have said you you just killed another innocent man you get off now. So before things get worse for

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

the people on the ship you know Salah Salaam he just took it on himself and thought let me jump off the ship

00:18:50--> 00:19:01

so he voluntarily without anyone telling him to do anything because the name came up the third time they didn't push him out they didn't tend to go No one said that he voluntarily just just threw himself off the boat

00:19:02--> 00:19:33

now that that as in leaving your people then coming to a storm and then your name coming up and then you jump off into a cold freezing you know sea in the middle of the night without you having you know it's not like you're going to get some other ships passing by with a lifeboat. Okay, it's not in it's there's no chances of us surviving worse, worse than this is a huge fish

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

comes up.

00:19:37--> 00:19:58

And you know if if anyone has seen the horror of even a wave a huge wave, you know, that is the something that will that will make you so make you run. Okay, if you can run basically if you're on land and you see a huge wave coming, you'll make your long run, you will seriously take your mega jump out of your skin.

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

Seeing a huge fish now, people have said, people as in both storybooks and so on, they say it's a whale. It can be a whale, it might not be a whale, it just the the thing is throat, throat means it can even be a normal small fish. Because in the story of Heather and Musa an exam, there, you've got the word Hoot as well, which means fish. So you can even it can even mean a small fish, it doesn't have to be a big fish. But in this case, obviously it was a large fish because you will have to take the whole of the body of usara sam comfortably inside and just swallow it in.

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

So this huge fish pops his head out

00:20:43--> 00:20:49

and just takes us Li Salaam in swallows him completely

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

swallows him completely inside.

00:20:53--> 00:21:35

And the thing is you if you want to get a feeling perhaps of using Salah Salaam was going through is that you've just been taken in a fish that normally smells anyway. But you're inside of the fish with all the gunk whatever else it has eaten. And with all the salty water of the sea, you've been just taking straight inside and you find this of ghosts zooming straight inside a tunnel or something right. Now what do you what do you what do you expect? What do you expect to be dead? And the Tafseer says that you do sorry, Sam, he thought he was dead.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

He thought he was dead. And he was really that I said I'm sorry.

00:21:42--> 00:21:45

But then what happens is he tries to move his limbs

00:21:47--> 00:21:57

and his limbs move now. So how to lighten them in the middle of the belly of this big fish. Alonzo john keeps him air.

00:21:58--> 00:22:27

However, Allah made a whole section of air inside there. I gave him Okay, now that the city says either he was there from for half a day. That's basically the full night till the till the next morning, or he was there for three days. And some have said more than that. But I think the majority of the or the or the good sort of in everybody's about three, three days or something. He was inside there.

00:22:28--> 00:22:58

Now when he found and it's darkness, he's not like he's got a and he can see. No, it's complete darkness. And the darkness is layers of darkness. Unlock holy Zulu, many, many different darknesses in Surah number 21 and number 87. And what's the darkness or darkness is the first darkness is the darkness of the belly of this large fish. The second darkness is the fish is in a dark sea.

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

And the third darkness is he's in the darkness of the dark night.

00:23:06--> 00:23:30

So it's dark, dark, dark on top of that he don't know whether he's going to survive, whether he's about to die, whether he's ever going to see life again, whether bytes remaining inside this the body of this large fish that slowly he just got to be you know, digested.

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

And he's got all sorts of thoughts inside his mind. And he realized at this point, why would Allah do this to him?

00:23:41--> 00:23:50

And he said the mouline the Quran says in it number one for to mouline which means that he was there

00:23:52--> 00:24:27

blaming thinking to himself, what is it that not blaming Allah? No, no, that's not what did mean he was blaming himself and looking for his faults because there's no way Allah would do this to an individual within one within a few hours. He just left his city storm a ship that a storm the main comes out jumps off welcome is inside and that's it. And the thing about the world is he don't he doesn't know where these are these big fish he isn't aware these fish is going to swim.

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

And go it could it could stay it could stay in the sea for a long time. And through that Ramses is dead it could even let's say if ever if ever there was a possibility that he would be taken out he probably taken out of the middle of nowhere or it could even be possible that another fish engulf this fish. What was that they exactly want to see that that is the case but you know we don't we don't have to bring that into the equation. So you know Salah Salaam is in this fish and his his his blade

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Ming himself, and he's looking for what he has done wrong. And then he realized

00:25:05--> 00:25:14

that he left with haste. He left his people without waiting for lost command. And

00:25:15--> 00:25:30

he made that mistake. And Alonzo just says in the Holy Quran surah number 68. And number 48. He says to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says to all of us, FOSS, belatedly hook me, Rob dick,

00:25:32--> 00:26:20

have patience, and wait for a last command to come. While at akun kuffaar he will who don't become like the Companion of the great fish, meaning noodle salad salad, don't become like him, meaning that Don't be hasty. Don't take matters in your hand and try to do things in a hasty manner. masala has and was told this. And we were told this Why? Because no matter how much the people who are who are not believing in this faith, no matter how much they upped their game against Islam or against us or against Muslims, we have to still just wait till the command of a law comes, we can't be the people who started okay, you know, whatever. This is enough is enough and blah, blah, blah, blah.

00:26:20--> 00:26:32

I'm gonna sort of stop there. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. So we're not supposed to be hasty in that sense, because a law that says if neither will who will not lose boom.

00:26:33--> 00:26:42

When Yunus was alayhis salam, he was calling out a law, while he had a lot of grief.

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

And while he had a lot of grief,

00:26:46--> 00:27:29

and the grief inside him build cup, or what have I done, and that grief, is a stress, it's something that will make you feel, you know, a lot of knowledge, bring it to our world. None of us will ever probably find ourselves in the belly of a large fish. May Allah forbid the mela predict to say, I mean, the chances of us finding ourselves in a in a variable of large fish is very, very, very, very, very low. And Allah protect us. But why did Allah give us such a story? It is because people, they might not be in the belly of a whale, but they are in several darknesses.

00:27:31--> 00:28:09

Yes, and because of the stress and Usama stressed out, because of the stress, they're in darkness, because of the situation with sometimes in life, you think, well, if I just do this, then it'll get better. And you do that, and it gets worse. And then sometimes you find yourself in life, that you've just gone through a snowball of disaster, it's like an avalanche. You just did one thing. And then another thing, another thing came another game I'm getting worse, worse, worse, worse. And you think ah, you know, this, this is this is too much. And this is what has happened to us. It just went from bad to worse back to us bad to us,

00:28:10--> 00:28:57

and allows relating to us. And we can find ourselves sometimes in the situation where we are. We're not we're not having the best of our days. And then he plays on your mind. The slack is playing on universal as a mind. Well, what is the cause of this? Well, universal esalaam one thing he teaches us on the store teaches us is not to put the blame on to Allah side. Ah, this is where you making the biggest mistake that Allah teaches us through His words through the dryer that unison Isla makes, he teaches us no matter how bad things get, don't blame Allah for your troubles. That's the worst thing you can do. Why? Because the reason why they say this sometimes why you find yourself

00:28:57--> 00:29:10

with yourself alone, just sitting and thinking, Well, I'm all alone in this trouble. Sometimes why Allah does that to you is because allow one to have a one to one with

00:29:12--> 00:29:42

unison. If you're with other people, if you think other people going to save me, you think well others are with me in this and so on. You haven't got a one to one. The reason why Allah sometimes brings you to your knees and you're all on your own and you feel that there's no one else. And I'm just just going from bad to about you as the reason why you find yourself in several darknesses and underflow on your knees and you're helpless is because Allah wanted to bring you to that state so that you could call him

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

and he wants he wants to spend time with you alone.

00:29:47--> 00:29:54

Which is a beautiful thing. If you think about it from the side of allies. It's a beautiful thing to think about because Allah really wants you.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

I really want you allowance to bring you close and sometimes you

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

I'll be honest with you the amount of people that have had troubles I'm come closer to Allah so many on this earth. In fact, I can relate to you stories of my life where I've had things where because of troubles you you start to become a wiser you become a better human being was a human being a human being that stays connected with a lot because you know, you messed up and because of the mess you had the only one that brought you out was Allah when Allah does that for you, Subhana Allah, it's like your Eman just boosts up. Let me do a quick let me do a quick analysis here. I've done this before, in many gatherings, if you find yourself in a situation in your life ever,

00:30:39--> 00:30:59

where you knew that the only only only thing that can ever save you from the situation gets you out of your trouble? is Allah and there is no way no, no way anybody else can help you. And then you make dua to Allah. And because of that you found yourself come out of that situation, or you do I was answered.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

If that ever happened to you put your hands up.

00:31:08--> 00:31:29

That's the majority of you. And I will put my hands up, you know what, I can put my hands up four times. I have a situation where there was no way no way you can ever think of any human being, or any coincidence or anything to save you from that situation. But then all of a sudden relief comes because you made made it right on that now, those of you who put your hands up?

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

Did your man get a big boost? Yes or no?

00:31:35--> 00:32:15

As soon as that's what happens to people who are faithful, and you're innocent. What Why did Allah do that to you? Because he wanted you to taste that experience. You know, if I look back in my life, and I look at those three, four incidents, I think Suhana you know, those instances they every time I think about him, they just boost your faith again, yes or no? You think Wow, wow, a lot took me down so low, and then he showed me the way out. That is that is something amazing. And if you can relate that story to people every time people hear it, they think it's amazing. I'll just give you a I'll give you a quick story from one of my close friend of mine who studied with me and there is no

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

reason I would believe that he would lie to me. There's no reason why I would believe that he would lie to me. And he's just an ordinary sort of, I think it was about 20 years old or something. He's driving a car. This is back in about 1990s, early 1990s. He's driving car, he's on the motorway.

00:32:33--> 00:32:41

And the weather's not too good. Okay, so people can't see properly because the probably some mist or something.

00:32:42--> 00:32:42

And

00:32:43--> 00:32:55

he comes around the corner of a motorway. He's going 70 miles an hour, like all the other cars, and all of a sudden he sees in front of him. He sees massive pile of cars.

00:32:56--> 00:33:05

All crashed and pile up and cars is gone. screeching gone straight into this pile. You know what happens on motorways sometimes, okay. Now he saw that and he froze.

00:33:07--> 00:33:21

he froze. He closed his eyes. He put his head down this window within a second. He just froze froze up, put his head down. And he said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. Knowing that that's it, it's the end.

00:33:23--> 00:33:37

Within a couple of seconds to three seconds, he's going to hit that pile. And that's it. There's nothing he can do about it. He didn't he didn't even take because you know you kind of freeze. He didn't even take the foot off the accelerator he didn't break.

00:33:39--> 00:33:44

Sometimes your body reacts like that. You just haven't got the thing to react so quickly to think what you're going to do.

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

And then three seconds passed four seconds passed. Five seconds passed. He still got his foot on the accelerator. Six second pass.

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

He opened his eyes.

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

He looked quickly at the mirror.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

The whole pile was behind him.

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

He was rushed through it.

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

You don't know how

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

he just went right through

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

it his eyes closed shut the Shahada is ready to die.

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

Within a few seconds, he opens his his his eyes he looks up and the whole party looks in the mirror is behind him.

00:34:18--> 00:34:59

If I want to save you, my friend, if I allow him to give you something like that, he can give it to you. You've got you can turn to Allah when you turn to Allah, you know what faith is? So here, you know Salah is right. Surat Sam, he is in this real bad situation and losses. And this is a thing that Allah teaches us that you have a choice now, you who is in this mess, you have a choice and the quarter for you. The Fate for you has been written in two ways. You're here at this point here. And the fate has been written for you in two ways.

00:35:00--> 00:35:20

Both have been written for you and you have a choice whichever one you want to do, a lot of knows which one you're going to do, but but Allah will not take your choice away, that is how we believe harder is you will not take your choice away and the choice that you make is your choice, but you have a choice you can make a or you can make B now what was a before universalism?

00:35:22--> 00:35:22

Allah said,

00:35:23--> 00:35:58

a fellow Allah, Who can I mean, am I a student number 37. I have 143 and 144. If you notice, Elisa, if Yunus did not praise Allah and take the Kazmir, meaning that he did not say super Hannah can He did not say the words that he said, if he did not glorify Allah, La La visa fee, but me he Illa yom you but I thought that he would remain in the belly of this large fish until the day people are resurrected.

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

That's this written here. A,

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

B is this.

00:36:05--> 00:36:44

That universalize salam has a choice to start praising Allah glorifying him and if he does glorify Him, then Allah will answer his call and he will take him out of the belly of this large fish. Both are written, and we know this because of the code and this part here in the peninsula. Safa says that if he doesn't read it, he'll he'll he'll find himself in the belly of the whale to their judgment, and the part in Surah Surah 21. I 87 tells us that he called a liar and he made it a sphere, and he started to smear him is to glorify Allah. So he made a test via Moses the sphere. Allah says Fernanda Zulu, Matt, he started to call me from the different darknesses now, don't

00:36:44--> 00:37:01

forget to handle the wonderful thing is, no matter how dark it is for you to use, and I still can't even see his hand. He can't, he can't even see his hand. No matter how dark it is, Allah sees you exactly how you are.

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

He can see your image the inside of you the outside of you as clear as broad daylight.

00:37:08--> 00:37:12

Now, he says he called me from the darknesses. And he says,

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

ILA in

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

the Super harnick in a coup.

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

de me,

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

the Susquehanna

00:37:31--> 00:37:55

to me navali mean that this you'll find sort of 2187 whichever tool he used, he just started to ask Allah, whether he used the tune or not, he started to ask Allah. Now in certain FCD says that, use Li salam, obviously, he had gravity that that was keeping him down. So he actually put his you know, he actually put his head down.

00:37:57--> 00:38:07

And he put his face to whatever it was that he was on. He wasn't ground. He wasn't, he wasn't the ground, whatever it was, he put his face in there.

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

And he said, Dr. Rob, my Lord,

00:38:11--> 00:38:22

I have made this place, the place of my darkness, the place where I am, I've made this the only place where anybody has ever made a solidity

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

where anybody has ever made a prostration to you.

00:38:28--> 00:38:47

Now Subhanallah I I was on one of my journeys and is normal rather with the world was with us. And he said a wonderful thing. We prayed at a certain place. You know, sometimes when you're traveling, you play and you pray in a certain place. Yeah, I remember I think it was some place that by the mountains or somewhere

00:38:49--> 00:38:56

and he said a beautiful thing. He said, perhaps we're the only people until the Day of Judgment I will pray salam, this place

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

within this Masjid, people are praying all the time.

00:39:02--> 00:39:26

But certain places nobody's ever, ever done ever done prayers. And sometimes when you do interest me are you even called and perhaps you're the only person who's ready to put in that place. Because nobody else is a believer that will read what and and travel in those places. So make sure you take advantage of that, you know, solid, solid, solid, you know, he's he's reading this again and again and again and again and again. And one of them was the meaning of this. He says

00:39:28--> 00:39:40

there is no one that is worthy of worship except for you. There is no data except for you. Super hanoch you Allah are free from every blame.

00:39:41--> 00:39:54

This is what it teaches us that Don't put the blame on Allah side. Say that our lives free from all blame, say that Allah is acquitted from any false accusation against him.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

Allah was not the one that wants you to do evil to you because

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Because you find yourself in a bad situation No. There is always a good reason for this Suhana you are free, you are free from all of this. You are glorified. You're free from all blame

00:40:11--> 00:40:49

in me, come to me now volley me. If there's anyone who's done wrong, then it's me. I have wrong I am from the people who have done wrong in the country, Nevada, me. And you know, Southern Sarab repeats this again and again is no one except for you, and you have no blame. You are glorified. And I'm the only one who is to blame here. I'm the one who's done wrong here. There is no one where they worship except for you. So mahana you are glorified, you're free from all blame. I am the one who is of those who have done wrong, who is who's of those who's done something that they shouldn't have done. And he repeats that again and again and again. And again. We don't know how long he repeated it.

00:40:50--> 00:40:56

But we've got a beautiful part after this in number 88 of surah. Number 21. Allah says pastor Giovanna, Allah

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

I answered him

00:41:01--> 00:41:09

three days whatever it was, I answered his one Ajay, now hoomin Allah Mia and I rescued him from his stress

00:41:10--> 00:41:20

worker that he can give meaning and thus like this, I will rescue every believer, all believers I will rescue them.

00:41:21--> 00:41:36

And Rasulullah sallallahu once told us in various Hadith, and I will die within Timothy you will find various a hadith where the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam has told us that the draw of universality salatu salam is something

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

find this hadith

00:41:40--> 00:42:08

darba to the noon fee but Neil holds the door of universality salon from the belly of the of the large fish, la isla Highlander super Chanukah in a country Nevada mean for inner who Lem yet Oh, Bihar Muslim Baba, no Muslim will call Allah of his Lord through these words, fishy in part for any reason whatsoever illustre jab Allah except Allah will answer the call.

00:42:09--> 00:42:12

Now many believers in the world have practiced this

00:42:13--> 00:42:22

you know, if you want to test this out in your in your if you're in a real situation, and just fine. Now the thing The best thing about this is just become like universal. So I'm going to secrecy.

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

Wherever you sit, make sure nobody knows about this.

00:42:28--> 00:42:51

Just sit yourself and use these words surah number 21. And number 87 Lyle and under Suhana Kang, you could have been a volley mean, they say it again and again and again and again concentrate on the meaning and make sure nobody else knows what you're doing just you do with a lot of C just like you know Salah Saddam was left alone with a law for your situation and make your other Latics you are guaranteed you will come out of the situation guaranteed. I gave this

00:42:53--> 00:43:34

to many, many, many people. And I've had many, many, many of them, reply back to me or tell me that has worked. Many, many apps, I've lost count how many people have given this data and said, You sit down, you repeat these words again and again. And you mean it that allies know you've done wrong, and that allies the one that has a no blame and you weren't allowed to take you out of the situation, you make the draw again and again and again, again, a lot will take you out. And it's happened. And this happens even even for you might think well, these are four situations where you know, do as normally would be accepted. No, I'm talking about the impossible

00:43:35--> 00:43:44

for us to come out of the belly of this large fish and to be delivered safe to the to the shores.

00:43:45--> 00:44:09

At that time, if you were there with us on SNL, was it possible it was impossible. Right from from a human thought. Of course for Allah, nothing is impossible. We know that. Right? But I'm saying from a human perspective, you think possible or impossible? Impossible. That's what you think, well, I'm talking about the impossible situation. People have had cancer, and they've used this to our and patients have been cured.

00:44:11--> 00:44:26

I'm serious about this. I'm serious about this. People have had almost like doctors saying that there's no chance of survival. And they get down they use this again and again and again and again and again and again. And they turn to Allah and Allah, God.

00:44:27--> 00:44:37

You have faith lauscha you've got to have that faith. So he said this, Allah said I rescued him from his from his stress, and what then happens after them.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

Allah says, I remember sort of 37 I number 145 final Bednar, who bill ah wahoo osaki. Allah azza wa jal then he makes the fish come towards the shore and he tells the fish to throw

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

To throw throw him out

00:45:05--> 00:45:06

to bring him out

00:45:07--> 00:45:08

and he does that

00:45:10--> 00:45:50

but when he brings him out he brings him out to claim a piece of land what we understand to be like a kind of a seaside where there's no trees or anything that are growing that is growing you find that it's a plane sort of part and you will realize and comes out with all the muck and dirt and all the things that were inside the belly of the whale I can't even describe what that might be but it's total mark and dirt all over and when he delivers him just next to the just next to this where the sea is and he's on a plane sort of see show he's on that

00:45:51--> 00:46:38

a lot then miraculously brings up a tree from besides him because he's been in darkness for three days he hasn't seen light suddenly when you bring come out in light and the sun is shining down you could you could get blind or blind so straightaway A Tree Grows is one of the type of the squash tree you know like the pumpkin that we have right? So one of those types is known as a squash that tree grows the leaves are large which give him shade gives him some rest and protection from the sun and the fruit was something that gave him nourishment because he needed to eat he hadn't he hadn't eaten for about three days so he's eating from that and of course the water is there to cleanse

00:46:38--> 00:47:11

himself so handle all those things are there so you can cleanses over the water from the sea get rest under the shade have the fruit and the thing is the fruit is such that it's got a lot of nourishment to build him build his energy back up again he was Alaska setting he was he was ill he came out of the variable as well Ill see the sick and he had he had two things obviously he's got a mental thing that my allow what is what has happened where am I and the second thing is he's actually physically ill

00:47:12--> 00:47:28

so so a lot gives him that enjoyment and what I forgot to say with last week was you know when are you but I said I'm he hit the ground and two springs came out what I wanted to mention over there is many illnesses, the queues are in the ground.

00:47:30--> 00:47:41

So in our case, it was the mineral water that had elements in it that would that would take away the the you know, whatever he had problem with the skin, it would wash it away.

00:47:42--> 00:47:57

Okay, now what I want to say from this is that many illnesses we have, there are natural cures on the earth and you just have to find it Rasulullah sallallahu Jasmines told us that there is no illness that comes to the earth but his cure is already there.

00:47:59--> 00:48:14

There is no illness that comes to brown except the screw is already there. But he also told us in a separate narration that when the people on the earth find the illness but they can't find the cure normally it's because of their sins.

00:48:16--> 00:48:21

So you know, today we've got a few illnesses that nobody knows the cure have, you know why? Because of what people are doing.

00:48:22--> 00:48:25

Because what people don't imagine they straightaway found the cure to AIDS

00:48:27--> 00:48:35

it's like the 70s The 80s was like our 60s 70s was like you know, sleep with whoever you want multiple times as many times as you want whoever you want

00:48:37--> 00:48:44

one day with brunette next day with Blondie next day with you know black hair next day with that one next day with your own kind you know,

00:48:45--> 00:49:01

wherever you want and then suddenly this disease comes in they haven't found a cure to it well why because if the cure was to be found, do you think these people will stop for they do that that's that's one big reason why but the cure is there nonetheless the cure is there sometimes the cure is right an X ray

00:49:03--> 00:49:06

he could just can't say people accidentally find these things.

00:49:08--> 00:49:12

People accidentally find these things, you know, the nettles testing you

00:49:13--> 00:49:31

sometimes you go to some areas where there's natural dusting into certain leaves you just touch them and there's there's never this thing you you know that natural light is standing next to that always grows another plant that has got long sort of leaves okay if you just take that other one and you scrub it. Yeah.

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

It's all cured immediately. Immediately from the naturals. Allah grows it always next year. I was many things people have found through through accidents on but what I want to say to you is that there are a lot of natural nourishments that Allah has has has made in these foods and one of them was unitized lamp is now taking from this yep theme, which is a squash. And he's not nourishing himself and he's getting completely back back normal and it was one of the favorite fruits, favorite vegetables for a pseudo lesson.

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

alarmism, he used to love this type of type of vegetable. So anyway,

00:50:05--> 00:50:54

he then get some Where is he? He doesn't No worries. And souhan Allah, Allah made the whale, go out in the sea, go with him for a good three days, turns him all the way around, brings him back to his own land. What What is the coincidence of that, that brings him all the way back to his own land. subarna Laila, and then only brings him to his own land. He gets up, now he's going to go to woods, he's going to go towards his own people. So he just wants to go back to the people and find out what happened. Now, to his surprise, when he goes towards his people, he found he doesn't know this has been happening in the background. What had happened is his people, they got scared.

00:50:56--> 00:51:30

When you set up some left for these three days, they got scared. They thought, Hey, listen, guys, this is three days ago, okay? This is what you selected. We just left for the boat. We didn't know this. That happened. And a lot of people to this day This was in the car and they said to themselves, hey, this man has left. He was a good man. He was a righteous man. He was saying things that was good for us. I mean, he's LED. What about it is it is true. And you know, I mean, the momentum starts if people say, you know, maybe he's true, maybe, maybe that's why he left because the punishment is seriously coming. He's never lied to us has ever observed. The conversations going

00:51:30--> 00:52:04

on. He's never like, he's never like, have you ever heard him? No, no, no. Well, if you said that, the punishments come down is it is coming, guys. Let's just go and find Eunice. Let's go after him. So it took you know, maybe some hours whatever for them to make this conversation and get ready. That will be sharpham leave Well, he left in this this direction. And what they do now they say whenever you want to come on, look, you guys know, if the punishment of Allah does come, then all of us are finished. So let's do one thing, let's all leave the city. It is a punishment comes and hits the city is going to hit the city that's only they took their women or their children or they took

00:52:04--> 00:52:41

their animals or animals or they took all the different types of animals, they dump it all out. And they went towards a plane land, they wanted to go in search of unicycle and they couldn't find him obviously. But they ended themselves in a plane and they were away from the city and they started to cry to Allah. And they cry to a lie they get over to Allah they cried, they cried. And what they did to make it even even more remorseful is they separated the the children from the mothers? So the mother You know, Mama mothers are separate from the children, another large group, how many are there, there's 100,000 people that came out

00:52:43--> 00:53:15

100,000 people that came out from the whole city they all just evacuated the entire city. They came out looking for us they couldn't find him alehissalaam they start to cry and the mothers were separated from the children's and the mothers are crying they you know, the children on some other sides 100,000 people you don't know where your children and the children are crying because they want to be there with the mother. Even their animals they separate the calves from the cows and the and the separate animals. So the animals are making a lot of noise as well and the old besieged alarm they were crying they're crying crying to a lot for about three days.

00:53:17--> 00:53:22

I'm asking a lot of love Please please rescue us we need to talk about bring us back to us bring us back to us.

00:53:24--> 00:53:25

And who look our plans.

00:53:27--> 00:53:48

He taught us a lesson lesson there he teach him a lesson here. Right? So they wandering crazy looking for unison Assalam universalism Hazara three days right out there where he's done a big lesson he comes he has his you know your thing. He has a squash in the news and some get some bunnies back to his land again and we come looking for his his town and in between somewhere, they meet they see Whoa.

00:53:50--> 00:54:16

So they come rushing to him. Allah says what Allah subhanahu elomi at the elephant is eaten I sent him to 100,000 hours he do know maybe perhaps a little bit more. What is it a little bit more Some say it was 110,000 Some said it was 120,000. But I heard one roofer say something eautiful which was in 100,000 people you are going to have certain pregnant women

00:54:18--> 00:54:58

and they will give birth Gezi doon the word Yazidi means to increase maybe the increasing which means that with 100,000 people, obviously births are continuously happening. So Allah said that were to show us that in all populations with large numbers of births are going to continue to rise. So it wasn't an exact 100,000. Allah said a few more, a few more that were increasing, increasing amongst them for our manual and they believed from autonomy law when we gave them a life after this a beautiful life to a certain point to a certain point, okay, now it's going to refer to one more

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

Verse of the Quran

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

and inshallah we done.

00:55:06--> 00:55:28

This this is the verse the laws of God wants us to think about as in he does not want to punish us. And he's telling us, why don't you Why don't you become like these people? So this verse is Surah Yunus pseudo number 10. So number 10, I am number 98, sort of 10. And number 19. Allah says falola, Canada Korea minute?

00:55:30--> 00:56:11

Why not? Why wasn't there any nation on the earth? That would listen, that the Prophet has told them that they better believe otherwise, there's going to be consequences? Why wasn't there a nation on the earth that would just believe so that they believe would rescue them and give them benefit? And they would be saved in there? And why not? Except for euroscience Allen's nation that actually did this, all other nations or many other nations, they just carried on making mockery out of their profit until the punishment actually came. So Allah said before the punishment came, why didn't the nation just turn to Allah, and Allah would have removed it, and then a man would have benefited them

00:56:11--> 00:56:54

and save them from the punishment. lemma Amano when they believed cashner on Hamada Bella says, when they believed I took away because the punishment was on a certain way, Allah said, I took away back the tormenting punishment of the life of this world, or Madonna, who Allah He, and I gave them a life to a certain point that they would live extra. Now again, for these people, there was two others, they have a choice, either they don't believe the immune system has left them and the punishment will strike them, or they do believe and they get an extra amount of life. Whatever life Allah ordained for them in the beginning, they would get the full life of that. And again, the color

00:56:54--> 00:57:06

tells us very clearly that is the case. So with us as well, you know, in every point of life, what this teaches is, we have a choice. And my brothers and my sisters will listen to this after listen to Universal excellence.

00:57:07--> 00:57:08

Story.

00:57:09--> 00:57:30

What we learn from this, the biggest thing we learn from this is, no matter how bad it gets allies there to rescue us, and the only one that you can find full relief from is Allah azza wa jal, there is no one else. And the only one you should turn to is Allah azza wa jal. And the thing is a lot of people what where they go wrong is this. Let me just explain to you

00:57:31--> 00:57:54

when they get into trouble, either they blame God, which they shouldn't do. Right? And they say, Well, why did you put me in this situation? Or they blame others other than themselves? Now people did this one. That's why that's why. Or they will suddenly just say, okay, somebody must have done something to me. The common one is like, I must be some gene.

00:57:55--> 00:58:06

No, come on. I know. No, I know, there are some serious gene cases. Don't get me wrong here. But people call on the dog must be gym, or must be like magic. And somebody must have done it. And I wonder who it is now this law thinking

00:58:08--> 00:58:12

was a him was him, he hates me more, maybe he might be maybe abroad.

00:58:13--> 00:58:46

And they start to think Well, before you do any of that. Don't get me wrong. There are some genuine serious cases of, of gentlemen, and so on and so on. Don't get me wrong here. What I'm trying to say is that don't just go around blaming him. These that, especially even sometimes, you know, I've heard so many cases where marital problems have just led to divorce or complete, like they just can't stand each other. Why? Is because they both are blaming each other. If you're going to always blame the other person, oh, my fault because of him and he.

00:58:48--> 00:58:53

And they're both boiling and boiling is getting soon it's going to pop.

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

What this teaches us is Judas Allison said, my fault.

00:59:00--> 00:59:41

When a human says my fault, and find you then able to reflect Now, don't get me wrong. Again, sometimes people are causing you problems. This This part is not for that. Okay? So I'm just purely talking about problems, you probably would have probably, you know, done for yourself. And you sort of blaming yourself for it. But I'm talking about situation where you are completely you are completely in a situation where it's you and yourself, okay. And there are no other people who are to blame here. Because I know sometimes politically, people create you. I'm not talking about those situations. Please don't mix things up. Okay. I'm talking about you. You can see that let me talk to

00:59:41--> 01:00:00

myself. What have I done wrong? And then when you come to that the thing not to do is carry on blaming yourself. This is where some people go wrong again. They blame themselves on this. Oh my god. Why have I done again? Oh, that's it and you stop not going to something positive. The positive thing that

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

Is to call Allah. You call a lambda focuses alone rescue me alone rescue me alone rescue me. Think about Allah Allah, Allah Peter, this positive carry on thinking about a lot less money, that's a positive. And then inshallah Allah will rescue you, and stop blaming yourself. And the last thing I'm about to say is that if you have made a mistake in life, don't carry on dwelling on it.

01:00:23--> 01:00:54

You kill yourself, you weigh yourself down, because you're thinking of the problem. A problem is only a problem, but you make it worse. Like, you know, one professor said once he took a imagine, I've got a glass of water, I might, glass of water. So what he did, he came to his lesson and he said, okay, he said, Look, this glass of water, he said, I'm holding it. Do you see a problem? What's the answer? He's just holding this a problem. Now, he's no problem. He's just holding the water I said, but if

01:00:55--> 01:01:04

if I leave this glass of water in my hand, and I continuously hold it without letting my arm down, without trying to spill the water, what will happen?

01:01:06--> 01:01:07

to three minutes what will happen?

01:01:09--> 01:01:15

You get paid, you get paid when your mind is still holding is still holding is holding and it says what's the problem?

01:01:16--> 01:01:22

The problem is not in the glass of water, that's not the problem. I've made myself a bigger problem which is I'm not letting go.

01:01:24--> 01:01:50

You understand this is pain, the pain is here. I'm not letting it go. The pain is not over there. There was a small problem in the beginning, which is when I when I held it fine, I've got a bit of weight that I'm carrying. When you go stress, there's only a bit of weight you're carrying, but when you hold on to that stress and you dwell over it again and again and you make it a massive madness, it kills you. It turns into depression and the depression will just completely end you

01:01:52--> 01:02:09

don't go through that what you do is turn like you've selected to align inshallah Allah will relieve you from the problem inshallah next week, we're going to start diluting Solomon Allah masala salam, and just before then there's a new lesson and there's a whole story of dilute and dilute and so on in the forum, which would have to start to get to that.

01:02:11--> 01:02:15

So we'll do that for a few weeks is that my head was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
