me know salatu salam ala Sayidina, Muhammad, Allah and he
said Mr. de la hora.
So we continue with the story of Solomon of Tao Dan Sullivan Allahu wa salatu salam. And we covered a story last week where there was a group of people who came up with the dispute to Tao Li Salaam and Solomon reisling actually understood the the better option of what to decide between them.
Now, this is not the first time that Solomon Salaam understood this, On another occasion that we have in Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that two women came to Dowdle, Islam, and both of them are claiming that the child the little baby, was this both multiple claiming to be the mother of that of that little baby now you can only have one Mother, you can't have two mothers.
So that was our solemn listen to the first woman
and then said, Okay, how do you know it's your child, she gave her, you know, she gave she gave her ways of explaining and then he had the other woman. She also explained the way my wife had white her child.
And after listened to both of them, he said, okay, it's your inner child to one of them. Silvana cinemas? He said, he's a father, if you allow me, let me judge. Now. Now that assented, fine, like we discussed last week was a great opportunity that he had a father like that. So when he decided when he had to wear window dressing decided he allowed his son to go forward. So the my son said, he said, Fine, he said, Look, your two women, both of you claiming to be the mother of this one child, he said, no problem. He took out his sword. He said, I'm going to have this baby, I'm going to have to saw this baby in half with my sword. And half is for you, and half is for you.
And it will be sold out and he was ready to do so. And then the one of the women said, Give it to give it to his house. He says
give it to her. Give it to her, she can have it.
Though the lesson then said he obviously didn't have the baby. He that he said to the woman who wanted to give the baby away. He said you're the right mother. You're the lawful Mother of this of the child. Why? Why is that?
Because the real mother would never want any harm, even if it means another woman takes it but at least it's the babies and like you're the one didn't say anything for okay.
So, you understand Pseudomonas Sallam had that had that great way of getting to a judgment they say. So this one is in a in a sorry, Hadith the other incident not so sort of authentic, but he he had a theft that was committed in his time. So ceramah salaam kololo people together. And he wanted to catch the thief. So so the one I Salaam he started to explain. We have had this theft has happened in this place. And they haven't at this time, I started to build a momentum up is building it up and everyone's tensed. Listen to him. And he started to say that we know who the thief is, because we have somebody has seen the thief. And the thief has got a description and it's building up building
up and he's got a whole full crowd here. Now one of them obviously has stolen this, this stolen, you know, this item. So he said, and I'm going to tell you the description that was of the thief just now. He just did the rest now. And the description of that is that the thief had a hat on his head. And the thief amongst the crowd is one other family just to check whether he's got a hat on his head. He never actually had a hat on his head. But he's put his hand there just to check
checking humans. So So that was another wonderful way of and throughout his life. What he did is that he established or into the into the hearts You know, he inspired or into the hearts of those who were in front of the fathers the king that was an excellent father was a great ruler, but the son became even more
Have a magnificent ruler. His father was a ruler great ruler.
But the son became a greater ruler than the father. Why? Because Allah gave him an extra Kingdom an extra extra kingdom that nobody after Solomon will ever have, and we'll discuss that inshallah later on. Now, what's interesting here is that the father is a prophet, and the son is also a prophet alayhi salam. You've got the same thing with Ibrahim is my father and son you got the same thing as Brian is how father son what is happened, Yahoo problem some profit profit. But the thing is the difference between Doudna Solomon and EMA Salaam and Ibrahim and his Hockley smile, or any of his children or grandchildren is that that would Ali salam, though he was a great prophet, his son is
greater than him in what he achieves. But with Ibrahim Ali salam, he's the great father or the grandfather of all these prophets, but none of his sons go past him in what he achieves. So the father in the case of Iran SLM is greater than the son, or the sons, and the case of Doudna Solomon, the sun is created in the father. What Ally's showing us is that you could have a son that out with you.
He's gotta have you gotta be you gotta be able to be a man and accept that you know what my son knows better than me? in this in this particular thing? My son knows better than me and allow it don't get don't get old, you know, you know who you are my dad. Right?
Right. Don't Don't say that. Sometimes the sun is more clever than the father in certain things, maybe not everything. And the Quran teaches us that sort of Allah, just because you're a father, and you got a son, or your mother, you were a daughter. I'm saying this as as a trs or as an analogy of growing from the Father and the Son to the mother and the daughter. Just because you you're a particular type of a parent doesn't mean you have to have the same in whether is it intelligence, or whether it's any man,
whether it's in faith or spirituality, you don't have to have the same. So what the Quran has told us is, you have a father, that's a prophet, but the son is a coffee.
What Who's that? No Halesowen. The father is a prophet alayhi salatu salam, but his son is a coffee. And then you have a son, who's a prophet, but the father is a cafe, which was that rankmylist restaurant? Okay. So both of both ways. You have a husband that is a prophet, but his wife is a peasant doesn't mean
candles also know how lesson I'm in the case of New Zealand it was, he has two members of the family, his own wife and his son most humbly. And then, you know, some people say, oh, who are you to give Dawa? Who you together go check your own family members? I look what they're doing. When you get that you get that you don't get that. And some people get really, really annoyed. They just get worked up. How am I supposed to get out to people? When people point at me and say, Look, come on, son. Look at my daughter. Look at my nephew. Look at my brother, Look, my sister, look my father to my mother. Well take the example of the Quran. You could have a beautiful a prophet, but even then,
he died was wasn't given to his son, or he died wasn't given to his wife. And and that's the case. So here we have a beautiful, beautiful situation where I think for the first time you have a father who's a great prophet, but his son exceeds him. You know, his son goes ahead of him in many things, not not not everything, but many things.
And Allah azzawajal blessed both of them. That's why he says in the Holy Quran, he says wakulla and Athena hoekman Wallah both of them I gave them the the understanding and I gave him Prophethood and allow says in the beginning of the third use tilaka rasuluh, for bonobo Humala dog. These are many messages, some of them I made them, I gave them preference over others, which means that the field you're in like, this was the field of prophethood. Some of them were greater than others, like you see the old LSR you see shalmaneser and then you see, okay, Yusuf Ali salam, even, you know, in terms of so handline does what he's been through, and then you see, okay, his father Yahuwah Salam
tend to suffer and so on and so forth. But then you see the grandfather of Yahuwah, salami, reminisce, and you think, wow, you know, what I, what a great person, but then above him is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, you see another prophet who's above him. So all of them have got the ranks, all of them are really good, but there's some above others. And the same thing happens when we are in any field you will have people that are greater than you in that field. There is there is no doubt about that. You have people that are great in your field and you have to learn how on the one hand you feel great because you know you're you feel some kind of pride that you're above others,
but on the other hand, you feel humbled. Because of you
Greater Than you in that field. Nonetheless, what happens is that with Ali salam, He rules the UN hearings on the earth. And after a number of years, though seven, he comes to his to the end of his life. And the Quran says that Solomon is around he inherits from his father. So before we get to that, if this is suited to Naaman, surah number 27, and number 15, where Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, Tina, whoo, that was Sulayman arena, we gave the route and Sulayman both of them we gave the knowledge. Now, before Allah talks about the civilization of that wooden filament before he talks about the kingdom and the powers he gave them, Allah says, We gave them knowledge. Why, without
knowledge, my friend, there is nothing on this earth. You're nothing. If you think that you can drain the earth without knowledge, forget it. This is the one of the basics. That's why the first revelation was a Torah.
Read, if you don't have knowledge, if you don't read, you won't gain anything. So it's a basis of all great civilizations. And then Allah says, wacol Al Hamdulillah, both of them said thou the lesson is time said and Solomon as Adam said, Alhamdulillah All Praise to Allah, Allah. Allah Allah Allah Cathy demeanor is the one who has given us a preference over many of his believing servants. Now, when you see that you are above others in terms of your piety in terms of Allah has given you in terms of my knowledge in terms of something else or your knowledge, or maybe some practice that you've got, you've got to make that a humble statement to Alhamdulillah Thank you Allah for giving
this in fact, the other way works the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is whenever he used to see somebody that was affected by some kind of affliction, okay, that one of the things the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam used to say is Alhamdulillah he ledee afeni minha
Alhamdulillah Allah Dr. Thani mimma tala, cabbie, apolonia Allah caffee min min ha, la casa de la, he said, he used to say that are all praise to Allah, the One who has saved me from from the affliction that he has put you in, saved me from the affliction that is put you off of galani Allah Cathedral in Mahabharata sila, and all praise to a loved one who has given me preference over many of the many of the people that he has created many of his creation. So in any situation we're in, we've got two ways. And this is one of the one of the things that we learn from Solomon, Allison and throughout his life, and there's a big, there's a big part come coming later on. So all of this,
everything that is happening is two big tests. Okay. We'll talk about this later on. But just to give the reference of this surah number two, the number 27. And number 40. He says Leah blue Annie ash guru,
this is a lie is testing me whether I'm going to be a grateful servant, or whether I'm going to be an untangle server. That's that's the two paths that allow them to see, because some people, they just can't have the sub, they can't have the patience. And some people that can't show the sugar can show the show the gratitude. And if you don't learn how to balance it between the two of subber and sugar, then you got to see this problem. Like I'll give you an example. This just just this week, one of my my son has been invited to one of his friends, homes from school. But this is this is not an ordinary house. This is a house in Hadley wood.
Okay, not my house.
his friend's house. So you know, cockfosters Hadley wood, you guys, you know what that is? Good, good. Big mass is gonna be big mansion. We're talking about millions of pounds of a house a mansion. So my wife said, he said, my wife said to me, maybe we shouldn't send him I said, Why?
She said, If you send him he's going to go there is going to see they've got a swimming pool in the house. They've got this massive these games room and blah, blah, blah, blah. And you'll come back to our house. And he's going to feel he hasn't gotten much. It happens in medicine. Yeah, sometimes your wife goes to another house here comes back.
To me, oh, yeah. Sometimes the husband goes to another house. He says, My wife's not gonna be old. Yeah.
You're saying is this wrong? It's wrong both ways. It's wrong. But it happens. But what I want to say to you is that I said to my wife, no, he's, he's gonna he's going to go. He said, Why? I said, I want him to experience people having more than us. And then I want him to come back and experience that he's got less, then I can teach him Southern sugar.
Then I can teach him patience, and gratefulness. Because if you don't go through this, where you see others that are more than you and you do
You know, nobody tells you how to control the emotions inside, you're in a serious trouble, you're in a serious amount of trouble. Because when you grow up, you'll carry on looking at people, you're caring and seeing others, and you will complain, or you just moan or you just want more than what they what they've got. But you know, it's not, it's not right for you to do that, because you will always have people above you that have got more than you. And you'll always have people who are less than you. So I said, At this age is good. He goes, because I want him to come now. And I want to have these feelings so that we can deal with the feelings, it's better that we deal with it at the
age of 11 or 12, than to deal with it when the man is 3132. You know, I'm saying like, when a person is 3132 4142. And they haven't dealt with that problem, there's a serious problem. So what we learn from this is that as we go through the see how much sugar and how much thankfulness to the mannerism offers, so what Allah says in the Holy Quran and number 16 of suta 27 He says, whatever he says, with a manual that would,
when thou that I said, I'm passed away. So I said, I'm became the heir of his father that would. Now there's one big question here, which is that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa has told us that, that the prophets they don't leave any inheritance for their children. So how come there was inheritance here? What this means is, this is not the inheritance of mean you.
If my father passes passed away, or when he passed away or your father passes away, that's not the inheritance that the Quran is talking about here. The inheritance the Quran is talking about here is whatever his father left in terms of having to become a judge. His father was a judge Solomon Isola has to become a judge. His father had his hand over this whole, this whole country it was looking after. It wasn't his country, it was the people's country, he was just in charge the same way. So the minister was in charge of that his father had an army under him. So then when I said I'm inherited the army war fought for his own games, no fault of
your own son, is Oh, Allah. So his father left knowledge and cinema lesson, I'm going to help to the knowledge from his father and many powers that his father had Silliman, as well. When his father passed away. He was in the it was in the position that he inherited from his father, not that he was taking personal money or personal gains, because profits don't need anything personal for for their family members. So what happens is, when he comes into power, there's a number of things that we're going to discuss and there's some stories. And so handle, you know, the plan is full of these stories. Why? Because we learn from stories and stories, you never get bored of them.
In as children, you love stories as Adobe love stories. Be honest, true. Now. You love stories every week, I'm saying and telling stories. You come every week again, and again, you listen to stories, and even I love these stories. Because the thing about stories is, when you hear it and you're you're a six year old, you hear it in one way. When you're 16 you hear another way when you're you know 2535 45 you hear in a different way. So let's analyze this. Allah says Surah number 38 sort of sod Ayah number 30 what will happen only the Buddha said a man we gave the gifted to that would Allah gifted himself a man near my lab. Just as Darwin was a beautiful and wonderful servants so as
to the man in a word he used to carry on turning to us, the same thing Allah said about our lives and he kept on turning back to us. So now a story. The story is a lesson number 32 is already the alaihe blushy your softener congealed Sullivan Allah Salam had we had a 1000 beautiful hoses the hoses for the path of Allah 1000 trained horses beautiful to look at they will alternate when I'm talking about train horses. I'm not talking about your wild horses that are that you go and
try to run away from me I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about horses that you go up to and they will they like you to stroke their
horses that recognize your horses that one need to jump on their back and tell them you go this way they'll go that way. And Allah has traded such horses in the Quran. So the idea to the number 101 idea to Baba Buddha era the Sahaba Allah Allah praises those horses. Why? Because they are such horses are under the command of the master which is the human being
a lot takes an oath.
Allah takes an oath, five oats he takes about those horses. And then after that Allah says in the insanity Robbie he like I know this is man. He's such such a creature that doesn't. Such a creature that one
wealth that is stingy that wants things for himself. Why is the law saying this after talking about horses? Why? So the handler, you look at surah number 100. Later on you look at that, I'm just relating this to that. Why Allah says that is because oh man, you take a horse, you tame a holes, you then make a hole, something that obeys your command, you tell our holes to go with you in the ranks of fighting and where the spears been thrown. And where people are throwing arrows and the horse doesn't bother about the arrows doesn't bother about the spears, and the harm that it might get. It just wants to keep you happy, and it will plunge ahead and move straight into the direction
you want. And it will it heals with Spark, you know, fire as it as it moves ahead. And you want to raid by morning it will fulfill your wish and your desire and Allah saying, Oh human being just as you tame the horse, and you fed the horse and the horse wants to do anything for you. What about me, Allah that fed you?
You forgot your master.
Your horse knows you, as the master will do anything for you, but you don't want to do anything for me. years and years and the whole point. That's the sort of idea. So what happens is Solomon Isilon is there and he's stroking these horses his pain is is enjoying looking at his horse. Now these horses were not just normal horses. This was evening time. This was before Muslim This was after as a Muslim, Laci seraphina tujia these were horses that you know, you know some horses, they can stand in front of you. And curl up the four leg and stand on three legs.
Tell up there one full leg and stand on three legs. These were those
the airport's these were these are trophy horse exact monohybrid the trophy Jose what are our brothers will probably call the betting horses you know I'm saying a lot of it. You know 111? guy he asked a sec to move these nifty is it? Is it halal to eat the horse? Because in the books of fifth, it says
it's undesirable to eat the horse and move to San Diego. It was makrooh before he said today it's more than a holiday. He said Why? He said because they're not using them for the path of a lie anymore. They're using them to gamble. So Bismillah Allahu Akbar. And I'm saying like, yeah, this will help
you make a good meal out of it. Yeah, 1 million pound burger. Host burger, 1 million pound burger anyway. So what happens are these are these are the trophy horses. These are the Arab horses that are prized. So he had 1000 of them and he's roaming around them and he's looking at them admiring them. And what happens is, what happens is that the Son,
son actually sets and he realized he realized something that because of these horses and the beauty of these horses, he has just missed his prayers that he's supposed to offer to Allah azza wa jal. Okay, whether they were knuffle, prayers, voluntary prayers, whether there was some prayers or something that he's supposed to say with his mouth, like some kind of liquid, or whether they were farther prayers, whatever it is, he forgot. And when a person forgets, there's really no sin on a person when they're forgotten when they remember when they remember they're supposed to pray or this also remember Allah. So he said, alayhi salatu salam, he said, in a hubbub to Heidi and victory
Robbie, he said, I have been either I gave preference of my love to goodness of this world, over the remembrance of Allah over the members of my Lord had that hawara been hijab until the sunset or who do hallae
he obviously obviously offered his prayers then he said bring them back to me. Now the truth one of two things he did here because the whole facility not divided.
Most of us sitting has said that what he did is he took the horses one by one for Pacifica Miss Hamby Suki well, and he took his sword and you know, these trophy horses, these horses that are you know, very expensive and very, you know, precious one by one he did Bismillah alone. One by one. He you know, that he's sacrificing let's go to them for the sake of Allah, the next and also the the shins. But then there's others that say, and I prefer the second of C,
which is that he wouldn't have done this to 1000 horses.
We're ready to go in the path of a lot anyone time. This is not this is not a small thing. We're talking about 1000 horses that are ready to go into part of a law. The second Tafseer is that he called them back
and he stroke them this time the stroke of mercy. So must have be suitable. Anak means that he passed his hand over their shins and passed his hands over their necks. Or it could mean according to the first seed, he passed his hand over the shins and necks meaning he passed them Bismillah Allahu Akbar, your son, so one is that he slaughtered all of them. And the other one is that he stroked them with mercy as in I'm going to have Sagar if, you know, I'm not I'm not going to I'm not going to slaughter them, but I will make sure that I never forget Allah azza wa jal because of the dunya that is in front of me. This was a big it's a big test and what we learned from this is so Han
Allah, you know, you know,
the the pious people, they've given away the most precious things away for LASIK, especially if it's made them if it's made them forget the vicar of Allah. Like for example, once the Prophet sallallahu came in, in his in his household and I shall be Allah on how she had made a beautiful she had stitched a beautiful curtain on the curtain what she did, she sold in the shape of a bird, okay in this in the sort of the, the decoration of this curtain, and also the loss on the lighthouse and previous Salah. And then after his Salah, he said Oh, are you sure he said take that curtain down, for the curtain has distracted me from the vicar of Allah de mesilla. So then he ordered I showed
the lohana to cut the curtain up, and then to use the pieces for one of the some of the cushions that they had inside the house. Okay, so this shows us that when it comes to the vicar of Allah, the remembrance of Allah, the example that we get is not to allow it to distract us from the decree of Allah. So dunya should not attract us, distract us from the dhikr of Allah azza wa jal and what we need to now look at is how many things are distracting us? Number one, the big mobile phone You know, I'm saying like, yeah, the big, big fitna, you know, people sit there as soon as, you know, they would even say
like, Where's my life?
Where's my life? The guy hasn't got a wife, but he's got Wi Fi. And I'm gonna say right now why for Wi Fi, he cares more for his wife and his wife. But anyway, what I'm trying to say is that big fitness, I mean, not only that the screen the thing you know, you've got so many fitness outside and that is big lesson for us. Like, we cannot allow the degree of Allah to be sacrificing and we've we allow the dunya to come in and distract us from that. So this is one thing now Ally's teaching Mohamed Salah, Allah has been through this and saying that you need to learn also the struggle that these prophets had. Okay, and to hold yourself back was one of the things I said to remember is
hikma is to hold yourself back. So the second one and this is handler This is where Suleiman al Islam gets his real powerful. Now there's again there's two two series here. And this is number 38. And number 34. Well, I got fatahna zulema. And surely we tested Solomon Allah, Allah, well Alpina Allah could see he just has an sumana and then we, we, we we put on to his onto his throne,
a body and then he turned to us now what is all talking about? The truth of CS one two c is that Solomon RSM became very ill.
And Allah says, we put on to his throne, a body meaning Solomon alayhis salam, so we put him on his throne, he was just the body he had no, he was so weak, so lethargic, that he had no spiritual side it was just the just the body. And then he turned to Allah and Allah then then, you know, Allah gave him something greater now that's one proceed, but over that I prefer the second.
The second to see again, he seemed to wire up what happened is that he had an army and the army started to lack in what they're supposed to do. So Solomon, Alessandra, he said, I will go to my 70 wives tonight.
You're gonna say, Rob, what do you just say there? Why did you just say there? Yes, I say 70 because Allah azza wa jal allowed it for them. But he hasn't allowed for this oma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam had the same permission.
as all the other prophets before, that they could get married to have however many they wanted. So, you know, like environment assemble had two wives, and some others before had had number of wives. Solomon, Allah Salam had probably one of the most in terms of numbers, he had 70. And it was allowed for him at that time to have that. And don't think in any way that he would, he would not give the right of any of his wives. The reason why these messengers had the authority was because they would be able to look after every single one of their wives.
And for us, it's been limited to how many for one brother said one,
it's usually two to four here. But if you can't look after four, if you can't do justice between the four, then it's one. If you can't do justice between the four or the three or the two, then it's one. Okay. And like one scholar said, in this day and age, he said, it is a very difficult thing to look after more than one because, you know, he was joking and saying, soon, you're gonna have so many children who say I will carry on.
No, no, no. Come on, come
on, whatever your name is. You probably forget the name. Yeah. So forget looking after them. You probably will forget which one is one. Okay. But but it's a joke, but the seriousness in that which is that you got to be able to look after everyone properly. But anyway, so the man is around, had 70 wives. And he said that I will go to all my 70 wives tonight.
And I'm going to sleep with each one again to harness the power that Allah has given our son lasala Holly Solomon before in the last year of his life, this is when our Prophet sallallahu wasallam is 62 years of age.
You know what he did in his in his one and only hatch one night, he went to all his nine wives. He had 11 wives, but two of them were not alive at that time. He went to all of his nine wives.
And he slept with every single one in one night. Meaning a proper sleeping of a man and wife.
We got the you might have the power to do Bravo one, or maybe two, or you probably struggle to do for our purposes. Awesome. You don't mind
in one night, and Pseudomonas rapido 70, Allahu Akbar.
What would you say Allahu Akbar.
I said, I know you can't have that here. You know, you're 72 of their Great Southern Southern Shaolin.
So what happened is he went and he said, the children that are going to come from each one, he said, All 70 of them.
I'm going to raise them as the people who fight in the path of Allah. And I'm going to have all of them are just you army that are slacking, you see that these children that will be of these, they will not slack, he forgot to say one thing, which is inshallah, so he went, met with only 70 wives alayhi salatu, salam, after after nine months,
none of them gave birth, except for one.
So one wife, bought one child, and even that child was a kind of a deformed child. She came embarrassed, all the way through his to his throne. And she put the baby onto the throne. And cinnamon looked at it and his straightaway 10 trauma. The whole point is from Anna, he turned to Allah. Now you made a mistake, Brother, you made it mistake system. You've got to understand we all make mistakes. You know, the worst thing you can do to yourself, you say in Allah stuff, law stuff, law stuff, law, and then you start killing yourself with the stuff of the law. Now some people they sell stuff and that's fine. Then they kill themselves. That's the fluster? Oh my god.
You know, and I think about and the thing about and think about it, and they they started going down and down and down and swelling themselves up. basically say, Oh, and I did that before as well as another time I did.
On the last guy ever.
I keep on being tober and I keep on making mistakes.
You know, they make the worst out of nothing. What are the parts of lawyers who say he said, What do you say? He said?
He said when you've made a sale, when you commit to the sin, follow the sin straightaway with a good deed and the sin will be wiped out. So instead of sitting there, I'm like, oh, you're supposed to say okay, now I'm getting up to record Bismillah if you still feel bad, get the Quran out and read it Bismillah and if you still feel bad then
Do some liquor of Allah just carry on doing an action until, you know, you feel that you know what? I've done good i can i can feel that, you know, I've at least buried that sin, you feel that the good deeds are kind of overpowered the sin or whatever that you might have done. Now this is I'll take the electron shot. This is the way of the of the profits, but they've taught us to do this and sue them and I said, I'm here he's made a mistake. It's just a mistake is not a sin. He forgot to say insha Allah, he actually they say that he had it in his heart. And he just didn't bring it to his mouth. Okay. Now, of course, we don't have to always say insha Allah but because he was such a
close person to Allah, he should have said it as an example because he has got close to Allah. And Allah wanted to teach him a lesson. But Subhana Allah, He straightaway turned to Allah. Now what's beautiful about this is
in and number 24, when Tao Li Salam was tested by those two individuals, remember those two individuals, they came straight over the wall? And they gave their case and he only listened to one and he gave his judgment. Allah says what he stated return to Allah and hear about Solomon Isilon, he makes a mistake to manage his stress he after that, he turned to a lot. What does that tell us? That tells us that whenever you make a mistake, just turn to Allah, just Forget it, forget what you did. Like, for example of this person this week, you know, as
a person turned to me, and she was talking to me and I said to her, listen, you know, you've had this bad situation, if you can, if you carry on thinking about the past of what you could have done differently,
then you're killing yourself with regards to the past. And if you carry on thinking about the future, oh my god, the viewer is going to do this. And the reason to do that and I'm gonna get was if you didn't do that, then you finish. Neither the past will give you any, you know, relief, nor will the future give you any relief you finish. So I said, what we do as a Muslim is that we say is too far. We seek forgiveness and we take the lessons of the past is there for a lesson we learned the lesson that the future is there bright inshallah, I'm going to be a good Muslim, and you will look forward to try and bring yourself back on your feet. That's what a Muslim does. So what
discernment is an undo? How did you turn to Allah? He said, this is number 35 or suta 38. Robbie, my Lord, is fiddly. Forgive me. So what Solomon Isilon did he said one bill fiddly My Lord forgive me, we're happily mukha and grant me a kingdom, lamb belly, I hadn't had the main body, nobody after me will get such a kingdom in the country, what have you are the one who gifts so well now Subhan Allah, he made a mistake. He has a deformed child on his throne. He, he's embarrassed because of he made a vow and he's going to take some or immediate promise or something that you know a good wish that he tries to get 7070 people from his own family that will be in the path of Allah. And he
couldn't fulfill that he felt remorse. But what he did is straightaway he turned to a line and made his bar Suhana Look, he's made a mistake. And then he's making a massive drop holida mistakes. So what you are the what have, you are the great gift, you can give me more than this. Give me more this is this is this is a 10 step forward. We make a mistake. We think bad on ourselves, we just about do some good deed. He makes a mistake. He says you know what, I'm going to feel even stronger now. Although you gifted me some gifting Oh my God, give me more give me more. And it makes up drama like sipsey.
Now he goes beyond his father in the kingdom. And the kingdom that his father had left behind. He goes beyond that. Why? Allah says fussa horn Allah who re I number 36 Allah says Now I put the wind under his command.
The tragedy BMD he basically says to the wind, he says, says I'd like to go to this other city, or this other land. Okay? So the wind,
Allah says, ha, instead of you know, we know when you want to fly fast, you gotta have a good if the winds going to make you fly. You've got to have a force of a wind to take the yes or no. So the winds gonna push really, you know, forcefully to try and make you go to that man. But Allah says Mohan Allah says the wind was a gentle wind but it still was a fast wind. Such a fast wind that explains it another part of the Quran he says
that what normal people would travel,
what normal people will travel and do in a whole month. Yep. So
So let me just find the
Yep, this is Surah number 34 ayah number 12 Allah says what is today man have we I gave to sillimanite salam I gave the the wind under his command will do hotshot what people would travel in one month of a travel. So imagine, you know, if you had a wholesome cart and if you had to travel one month and you did consumer do this calculation, please, if you can please on your on your on your phone 16 miles, they would do in one day, but 16 miles roughly. Okay, they would be able to travel. So if your time's up by 30 480 miles, okay. 480 miles or 500 miles, almost silly, Monterey, Ceylon would be able to just do that in part of an evening.
And what our who has Shahab 480 miles came back cinema, I said, I could do that in part of the morning.
Just the wind
brings him back. And that's just one power that allows delegation. And
aladin says was shouting,
I made this is this is unheard of.
Allah put the devil's the shale team under his control their bad gins. He had power over them. And they say that cinnamon Isola had his ring. And this ring was a powerful ring with which he could subdue the gyms under his control. And he would bring them over and he would say to them, you bad Jim, you've got a choice. Either you work for me, or you go to prison.
syllabus, and I had that power, and he had a lot of all that he struck into the hearts of those that were in front of him. He said, you do this you either work for me and you do you create one minute for me. And you work and you build things for me. Or you simply go to prison. So what sharpener Kula Bana involved was, he had some of the the evil sort of gyms. He had some of them building monuments for him. They were building great structural monuments for him. While Ross and others he said he said go to the oceans, dive inside and bring me the pearls and the corals wherever else from the bottom of the ocean. Bring those to me. So they used to do that. Okay, well our Halina mokara Nina.
And those of them that never listened to him, he had them in prison.
He had them in prison, and they couldn't leave. And but how do you imprison this thing? How do you imprison a jinn into something which is tangible?
So we're handling something that is tangible, so something which is physical tangible, a gym should be able to just go straight through that. This is because Solomon ra Salam used to read the names of Allah or used to read something by which the jinn was subdued inside whatever he put it. Okay, they were trapped inside, whatever, whatever they that he put it into. And then Allah says, haha, a foreigner, this is just a gift to you from noon. I'm sitting right here. He said, Allah says just take it take it either you gifted it? Well, you take it without any without any record, it's yours. In wine, Allah who are in denial, Azusa was an Arab and on top of this, he still has got a great
status with us. So Solomon, Allison had all this power on top of that he gave him more power.
Was that power? This is now student number 27. And number 16. Allah says Sullivan lesson came out to his people and he said, Yeah, you Hannah's Oh, people are Linda multicopy. We have been taught the language of the birds, okay. Now most mufa sitting have said that when he said we had been taught taught, this was as an authority over the people just as kings and Queen queens. They say we, as I just one person will say we because he's an authority. So he said that referring to himself, meaning that only he could understand the language of the birds. And some of us even has have said that this refers to his father Dowdle, Islam as well which I spoke to you earlier, that the birds when they
used to sing along without the restaurant, according to what the city needs to understand that there is singing and humming along with him the praise of Allah azza wa jal, and then Allison says what routine I mean cliche we've been given part of everything.
Now, just because he says part of everything, it doesn't mean that he's got everything because Allah azza wa jal has, has kept many things he has given to cinema, cinema and cinema. One of the things we're going to read on later on or study is beautiful.
Peace and a whole kingdom that was not under his power when he said this. He then says in
the movie, he said, this is surely a great boundary and clear boundary of a lousy job now so he can understand the birds as the birds are talking, he can understand what they say. And not only that, but he's subjugates the bird to his wishes. So if he wants to get a better bird come over here, the bird has to come. If the bird doesn't come, Solomon Isilon can force it to come, and then he can punish the bird.
He can punish the bird. So if he tells about bird, I want you to go to this land and see what these people are doing. The birds are hovering around and the watching. So even the gyms and others, whatever, if you send them out, it says, look, look over my kingdom, he had his birds going out to the different parts of his kingdom. And they were acting as his spies. And they're acting as those who would inform him of the things that are going on going on. And he didn't have to always subdue Pete, you know, subdue genes himself, he could get other genes to go and bring other genes. He had that power genes were absolutely terrified of him. And so humans to disobey this great king. And
then not only that, but sillimanite salam has even more power What is that? Well, who surely should a man and you know to whom in a genie will in see or piety from us on
surah number 27 and number 17, Solomon, Allah His salam to him, he was given armies of genes, armies of genes, armies, of people, armies of birds, these were his armies. Now, normally, you'd have only armies of human beings.
But he had armies of all three.
He had the human beings that were, you know, tangible creatures. He had the genes that were non tangible creatures. And he had the birds that had the sky covered.
If he wanted to tell them to pick up some rocks or whatever, drop them somewhere they could, you know, you can't just just fight versus like that. We know what happened to the people of the elephant when they came to try and destroy the carbon. So he had he had a great power, and with this power can imagine he's cut he comes out. So as he comes out, he's got hundreds and hundreds and 1000s of human foot soldiers that are walking with Him and hundreds and 1000s of gyms that have come out with him and hundreds and 1000s of or one of the birds that come out with him and Suliman. Allah Salam is at the forefront of all of this
Air Force debone says it more than the Air Force here had either Otto Allah word in another story until Solomon Allah Ceylon comes upon a valley of
so he comes upon Valley and ends now tell me brothers, yeah, you with a huge army.
And as you're walking, are you looking where he where you're gonna be looking, you're gonna be looking out there, you're not going to be looking below.
He's a prophet of Allah. He's looking everywhere. And he comes across this valley of ants. And the strange thing is all of nambla, one of the one of the ants, that is a female ant, and we understand this to be the queen and
she says, Yeah, she cries out to all the other ants. Yeah, you honey. Oh, ants, my colony. All the Hulu masaka all of you getting to your different holes, get into our homes, like the mannequin Sulayman or julu.
Lest Sulayman la salon and his army trample over you, and you don't and they don't even realize that the Trump movie so she's concerned that this huge army is coming. And she's telling all the ants to get inside, you know, into the holes unless they get trampled over by Solomon and his army. Okay, so
with all of this arm imagine I boom June to June, June as the whole arm is moving forward in the midst of all of that, how Allah made me listen to that one and
that is some super power. And you know next time you tell some kids some stories about Superman. Who doesn't exist Yeah. Superman exists or it doesn't exist, exists or doesn't exist. It doesn't exist.
And they say that all those people who played Superman and if you want to research on this year, all those people that played Superman something another happened to them
all them all them something happened to them. Yeah, I know you guys.
Yeah if Christopher Reeves he fell fell straight on his spine. Yeah, but i'm not i'm not saying anything about what I thought well, I'm not saying those who try to become Superman, they've got some history and you you read about all the people who try to become that one or another. There's some stories that's random. But anyway, what we want to tell our children is this that this is a real individual who's got power over the burbs power over humans power over gins And not only that, in the midst of all of this, he is able to hear the conversation of this Queen and to her colony and Suleiman alehissalaam and he is that he smiles
and he starts to laugh, his smiles fatter, but some of like a smile. And then
he loves the smile turned into a laugh. Now this is you know, some people say you can't laugh.
We come across those people here. You can see this Muslims are not smiling in Islam. So serious above
Quran to to a Jahangir. They're always think about that. Yeah. Some people get really serious and they think there's no laughter here. There's a prophet laughing my friend. Okay, cheer up. Okay. Have a good day. So, you know, he smiles on the from his smile, he laughs And then from his segment and then he says, He says, straightaway, Robbie, my Lord, I was there any and Ashkelon, Yamato karate and Australia he stopped at
the stop. So the man I ceramics
and his daughter is my Lord bester on me, shower upon me, that I may be thankful for the gifts that you have given me and my parents, and bestel on me so much, that I'm able to do good actions that you're pleased with what other kidney bureaucratic and from your mercy. I want you to enter me amongst the amongst your servants that are righteous. And the big question is here.
Why did Shalimar eyes, smile and then laugh? And why did that make him make a dua to Allah straightaway.
And there's a deep thing that goes on here because you think about anything. So why?
Because the greatest King on the earth at this time is Solomon only Salah with his entire army.
This is the greatest king that has the force to wipe anyone out in front of him. But the great one of the greatest but smallest queens on his land is an ant.
And she has an army, she has a colony. And they have an entire force, yes or no. If you see ants at work, you'll see a miracle of a large soldier. In fact, there are many studies on ants. There are many stanza ants, how ants navigate, how they able to find what they want, how they sacrifice a life, just to get this one item into the hole, how they will all follow in a pattern or line. How just like the army when the army marches along on the ground is obviously an answer. They follow a particular line.
In fact, they've got a great civilization. Thank you, brother. In fact, if you had this pillar here, and you had that pillar there, and people were walking along here, across northern unstirred, they learn how to move up the pillar all the way across the top and come down this pillar and walk that way.
They have a sense that they understand them sundried they reason they understand. I mean, they can't talk like us, but how are they? How was she made her communication? So then when I said I was able to, you know, grasp that whether it was through some some kind of something that came out of the mouth or something with antennas, whatever. So then when I was able to grasp that, but not only that, you think about it, if it wasn't for the ants,
and their colonies on the grounds all around us all around us. Would we be living?
On answer that question, brothers?
Would we be living?
You said yeah, of course we live with the answer. No, you wouldn't.
It's a fact it's a scientific fact. If the bee colony dies, humans die.
You see what bees die humans? Yes. There's millions of pounds that have been pulled right now into several parts of the world to understand the colony of bees. why they're on the decline. And if the bees disappear, you've got a whole nature structure, infrastructure that disappears with it. Just because they're not picking the pollen, and they're not making honey out of it. There's a whole structure that dies with it. And oh, not only that, they say that king of the jungle could be a lion. But the queen of the jungle is the and
king of the jungle is a lion. But the queen of the jungle is an ant. Why? Because the little work she does has a massive, in fact, impact on the entire jungle and the entire structure, if she doesn't move with a colony to move the small pieces away, and what she does, in terms of looking after, whatever she looking after, there will be huge consequences, because from those pieces that they're not eating, and they're not taking away, that will, they'll be small, other insects coming out from those insects, there'll be other things and so on and so forth. Whatever impact you will have, all you have to do is remove those ants from the colonies that they're in. And you see the
impact straightaway. So Sullivan has him as the King of his time understood from the queen, that you know what, no matter how big you are, you don't destroy those people who are small under you. So the lesson here, your big. She's small, but she has got an equal effect on your kingdom, just as you have on her. So it's a truce. You don't try and kill her. She shouldn't try and kill you. And you have peace. And this was cinema Cinema stops there. And he remembers, just as I have power to kill these ads right now, but I wish not to the same way my lord could have killed me off. And I wouldn't have survived. Abdullah bin Masuda de la Han once he raised his hand to hit a slave. And as he
raised his hand, he heard a voice behind him. And it was the voice of Rasulullah sallallahu.
And the prophets of Allah has been said, or Abdullah. He said, Lola, what occurred is that Allah has more power over you than the power you have over the slave. Don't forget that.
What does that mean? That you can strike your slave right now. But don't forget, there's one above you that can strike you.
So the power you have don't just don't just wait, don't just take advantage of your power because there's greater powers that above you. And you gotta you gotta understand that. So cinnamon has some straightaway made rather a lot makes him thankful. Why? Because look at this, and the Auntie's is showing gratitude to a whole column is saving your whole colony, because of a of a, an invading army that is coming above, she's wanting no time to try and spare a time to just, you know, tell them to do this number get into a hole straightaway, it's an emergency.
And he laughed, because why? Because he understands that he could be crushed anytime he is an army could be crashing down from bigger armies that are on the Moloch and send any army around. And Allah says let me give you the
let me give the reference of that.
Just to give the make the meaning more clear. This is Surah number, sort of 48. And number 24. Allah says well, who will lead the cafe via who manku ye via command? Makkah, Allah says when you came to the value of Makkah, this is talking about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam with his army, and they were only there for Umrah, he said, Allah says he is the one who's Allah. So I'm the one I stopped their hands from killing you and stop your hands from killing them. There's a big Nirmal, there's a gift in the big gift in this survival better to survive than to kill each other. And he thanks Allah. And then he makes golf for his parents recognizing that just as you are the great one and the small ones
underneath you, that are great ones above you and it's your parents behind you. The successful ones are your parents that gave you a made you who know what you are today. And then he asked a lot to make him have good actions and then you know, entamoeba mercy, an enemy, enemy through your mercy into the most now the righteous servants that you have the question that you had. Yeah, basically, you know, you said
is that regarding
repentance is for minuses and four major sins. You said follow up with a good activity. Okay? Yeah, followed up with a good action and then it's gone is for both major sins and minuses. If we do minor things, we should follow straight away with good action. If you do major sins straight away. Again, follow up with actions there's no differentiation between minor and major
because any type of thing is supposed to keep yourself positive, get yourself back up again straightaway get yourself back up again and move forward with armor because what happens is that if you keep yourself down at that time, you carry on going down you go through a landslide, you know it has an impact.
Okay, let me tell you the buff has got a good point. You know, you know you've done a sin and you have had an impact on your heart and you feel it. The opposite is true when you do a proper toboe. So I listened to the scholar once he said
he said that scholars say what is the what is the sign that Allah has
accepted your Toba?
How do you know that allows accepted your Toba? So there is a number of ways, okay? And one of the greatest ways is that you actually start to leave that sin for good. That's the biggest sign that Allah has kept unless accepted your Toba. Okay, but then there's other signs as well. The other sign is that you actually the fact that you know when you do tober sometimes you do Toba and sometimes you really are regretful and then you cry. And sometimes you're there and you're so remorseful and then, you know, you wipe your you wipe your, you know, face, whatever you might be tears. You know what happens? You get a very cool feeling in your chest, yes or no, after Toba? That is the opposite
of what you just said. So you know, when you send you can feel sometimes you can feel the effect of it on your heart. But then when you actually do Toba, you can feel the effect of your new heart again as well because it's a cool feeling. And all the math said that is a sign that Toby has been accepted. Okay, so no less accepted from us. zatanna Hiawatha, Davina and hamdulillah al amin, we've gone over time today I'll take your questions next week inshallah, please write them down, write them and Sharla now much time because we went over, I need to also get away today because I've got another appointment at 930.
