00:00:25--> 00:00:26

yesterday

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

after low water cut

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

smilla hora de La Habra. alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. Meanwhile, he was on here train about, first of all, thank you for coming. We took a week off. And we're back at hamdulillah. And I hope in in a week hiatus that we, we still kind of remember the story. Because today we're not going we're we're still on the swan Mirage because we didn't get to do a lot of the analysis last time. And

00:01:03--> 00:01:14

so today, we're not going over the story. Again, we're just going to go over certain parts and some benefits and points and lessons we get out of it. Okay.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

Sorry, an interesting point, just

00:01:21--> 00:01:59

a few things about the Iraq it's interesting that there's some very fabricated Hadith about the buraq right. And especially it's used by the types of Muslims that want to exaggerate in the love of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they want to live in a bizarre sell him so much that they start to invent lies about him that the heavens and the earth and everything was created out of the and the first thing I look at it from his light is Mohammed Salah Salaam and then from the light of Mohammed Shah salami quit, this is this is a lie, and they're trying to love the process of them so much that they start lying about him. So they have lies about the woroch to Mashallah, they say, really

00:01:59--> 00:02:07

amazing. They see that Allah subhanaw taala. And this is again fabricated, that Allah subhanaw taala created 50,000 bucks

00:02:08--> 00:02:46

50,000 bucks. And out of these 50,000 they chose one the best one, too, it's kind of like, those reality shows people compete to be American Idol. Baroque idol. Yeah, all the rocks competed to see which rock will win and be the one that the problem will ride on. And when that one buraq was chosen, the other 49,999 books cried so much, because they're not going to be the one to have the honor of the person I'm writing on their back, that they cried so much that the tears would drown the earth if they let them into there.

00:02:47--> 00:03:17

So of course, it's fabricated. Remember, last time we were discussing about the movement of the warlock one description, one explanation of you know, how we said that it would put it would put its feet were to the last point of where it sees. It could also be that it this is that it jumps, it leaps. And when it puts its feet, meaning it lands at the lowest place that it can see. And that's the explanation behind how the problem could see the caravan.

00:03:18--> 00:03:28

You know, the caravan and the last camel, because while the buraq jumps its way up there and he could see he gets an aerial view of what's happening. So that would explain to

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

Okay,

00:03:34--> 00:03:52

so so let's try to go down through not not through the details of the story, but through points of the story where we can pull benefits, how about to warm up everything here? Let's start with the proof that this the journey was body and spirit and not just a dream as some people claim.

00:03:54--> 00:04:14

What if someone were to walk in and as we're mentioning different fine points to prove that this was an actual journey? They started to say well you guys, you know sitting all of you here and contemplating on such an issue. So what if it's an actual journey, body and spirit or if it's just a dream? What's the difference? The point is Salah is legislated. The point is

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

and the problem was honored and that's it. So what's the big deal?

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

Anyone?

00:04:23--> 00:04:30

I don't have an answer. I just thought of this now. What if someone comes in says what's the big deal is by his journey and I mean first I told them

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

okay, yeah, yeah, I need it was a journey to honor and maybe saw Selim. Remember we said the timing when it comes. It comes after the Euro of sorrow, the process alum you know, the, the persecution of the Quran increasing upon him, the death of a Buddha, the death of Khadija, then you know this and if you want to call it unsuccessful journey to a part if and all that the problem endured there. So it comes at a right time.

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

So when you want to honor someone, it's not this they see a nice dream, okay? They actually he was actually honored by Allah subhanaw taala and physically went on this journey. The second thing realistically is they're making a big deal out of it. And it don't accept the accusation that you're making a big deal out of it. The prophets of Salaam went on a physical journey but such that it's that simple. You're the one making it difficult love. He was a dream you're making a difficult problem went on a journey physically. And he explained it that he physically went on a journey and you're the one trying to make it No, it's a dream You're the one making a big deal I'm not and the

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

man who is upon the default or the man who is upon what is the truth isn't the one making the big deal? The one fighting against it is the one making the big deal. Right?

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

For

00:05:49--> 00:05:55

Okay, so then, let's discuss then this will take place in body or in spirit.

00:05:57--> 00:06:42

We mentioned some of the evidences, maybe we'll just because I mentioned these, I'll repeat them anyways. We we said that in certain israa Allah subhanaw taala says to pan and let the Astra be AB de. And the word that we said refers to the human being the combination of body and soul. When when, when you dream of something you're not referred to as the abdomen somewhere, the object is you the human being body. And so so when the app goes somewhere, that anyone, when the slaves have a logo to HUD, they physically go to HUD, they don't dream about the Kaaba, and there's a counters HUD if you dream of HUD doesn't count right? If you play too afraid to work out in your dream count, you will

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

come from the library

00:06:44--> 00:07:27

because you know the tion does it sometimes like you keep saying I gotta get up for vigil then you dream that you got up and prayed for us. Hola. Hola. So let me slip the sun comes up. So, Abdu, we said also, last Thailand, Zoltan nejm praises the eyesight of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mazovian basato wa Taala that the vision the eyesight of Prosser lumea and he was he was basically he was lowering his gaze who was not trying to look at it towards the direction of Allah. So Allah praised his his eyesight, he said it did not swerve, nor did it go beyond its bounds. And he looked into what it's not supposed to look at. So the problem is praising the eyesight of the process. Helen is

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

praising the eyesight of individuals. That's not something that would happen in a dream. Okay.

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

Okay, what other points do you have to

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

to strengthen the argument that this was a physical journey?

00:07:41--> 00:07:57

Remember, just for to jog your memory. The next day, the pasta lamb is sitting really disturbed how he's going to explain this story. There's even a narration that ohana told him Don't tell anyone about it. And he said, No, I have to that's his job. Right.

00:08:03--> 00:08:07

But what do we have as evidence to that? That's well done.

00:08:12--> 00:08:31

Okay, excellent. So the bed was still warm, right? And when you dream, yeah, the bed doesn't get one molar cold, you're there on it. So the person went and came back while the bed was still warm, which shows you that only it only took part of a day. And that he physically left the bed. That's why they had dimension when he came back. The bed was still warm. Excellent.

00:08:32--> 00:08:38

What else is proof porcelain physically went on the journey. Going to find details now for those who doesn't have it?

00:08:47--> 00:09:25

Yeah, it doesn't even it doesn't fit the description of a dream looks like we said, when you dream, you know you don't lock the car and check the car again and then delete it and check it again. And you just go you know, I dreamt that I went to ISC Hollis, I arrived at ISC right and I don't remember locking the car and then checking is a lot did I park in the right spot and this is the dream this doesn't happen. And the dream usually how many people here had a dream where the journey started and the journey ended? The dream you just wake up somewhere right? And you suddenly you're in Arizona and then you then it ends in the middle of it. This is a this is an incident where it's

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

you have okay know

00:09:28--> 00:09:32

that you start and you have the ending you even return home from the dream.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

It was like a locker so just you know gyms just end that you don't do any then take the train back to your house and you're in here waiting in the dream. Okay, then now I can wake up, I'm home. It just ends and starts and ends but he will have the details of the beginning of the journey. And then we'll have the details of the return of the journey. So all these details will turn will start to lend to the argument that it was an actual journey.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

But something else

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

about for example,

00:10:06--> 00:10:46

part of what Shana Bill said is that he and the president tied the buraq and shows that a physical ride was needed. Physical ride was needed. The President described the burrup described its color described its movement described jabril bringing it with him described the abrupt moving when Preston was about to get on it then jabril spoke to it and told it Danny, no one who will ever ride you is greater than this man salsa. So all this all this detail that a physical animal was needed. Exactly. Now, you know, other howdy alternance Hill Buhari where the problem would go where one time he went with the angels, and he would see certain punishments in the Hellfire, right. And then they

00:10:46--> 00:11:23

would say in tala kuntala, they would be they would go and see another punishment, then they would go in that one. And we know from the Hadith we know that the the dreams of the prophets, it's true, right? So in that one, there is no detail how they got to the heavens, right? It doesn't describe that they don't remember the description. There's no description of getting there. And there's no description of coming back the dream that you're there. This was when the President actually had a dream. It doesn't describe getting there anything doesn't describe a physical animal just he was taken to Jenna with two angels. They showed him these types of punishment. They show them in the

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

Hellfire, they show them rewards. And then he was back. That's it. He was awake. Like what else?

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

Hold on one. So

00:11:40--> 00:12:09

Uh huh. Excellent. So the process alum drank from the container of the caravan courage caravan coming back, right? He drank from the container that's physical. And he spoke to them. They were there. And he spoke to them on the road. You know, in order to speak, and to communicate with living beings you need to be in body in order to communicate with them. So drinking, speaking to them all this is evidence that it took place physically, what else?

00:12:12--> 00:12:13

I okay.

00:12:14--> 00:12:24

Okay, but you could also use that term on people who want to prove it. insist that it's a dream, they can argue well, you can drink in your dream. But Okay, very good. What else?

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

Now?

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

I'll get to, I'll get

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

awa.

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

Excellent.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

Excellent. This is very strong points.

00:12:46--> 00:13:20

Very strong point. Why was it a big deal for the course? If it's a dream? Why on earth would it be a big deal? And if I told you late last night, I jumped I was in Shanghai, golden chalet go to Hong Kong also. Who cares? Who cares? Dream you can go anywhere in your dream. Why would the courage what some people we said authentic nation, some people left Islam. After the incident was hard to believe. Abuja calling people to the prophets, I send them props to them said this is one of the most difficult days when I asked him and the most difficult times he said that he experienced. Right. He was really he said he was vexed. He was

00:13:22--> 00:13:38

distraught. How am I going to explain this to people? So if it's just a dream, there's nothing difficult at all. So this is proof that he meant that he went physically. And they found that difficult to believe. And that's why it was such a big deal. Excellent. I've never come to football.

00:13:45--> 00:14:05

Excellent. Excellent. So the proxy lamb his heart was taken out by jabril. And it was filled with a man. All right and put back in. So then this is all preparation for this for the physical journey because it was going to be a miraculous incredible journey. And if it's just a dream it there's not much preparation needed.

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

Yeah.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

Can you die because of a dream?

00:14:12--> 00:14:17

No, okay. Sometimes Africans that believe that if you die in your dream, you will you'll die in your sleep.

00:14:18--> 00:14:36

But then again, how can you prove it that even if someone dies into sleep, you can't prove that they had a dream? They got shot or something? So he didn't wake up for future. Okay. So the fit physically taking out the heart of interview preparation for a physical journey. Excellent.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

What else?

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

Uh huh.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

Excellent, excellent. So the problem then saw the carrot

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

And he knew that was the president described approximately when the caravan will return back to Quraysh. He described the lead camo all these things. And again, like in a dream, you don't pass by every, any the roads and people and then and these would be people that are in real life in that place coming back on it. It's kind of unlikely. Yeah. So excellent.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

What else?

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

Anything else? further?

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

Mm hmm.

00:15:41--> 00:15:41

Uh huh.

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

Okay, okay. It's possible because like we said, Remember we said there are many, many narrations describing it's the most

00:15:53--> 00:16:23

documented incident and the meccan era, which is this one. So rather than when he was saying he's heard of a narration, where the lock to the door was still moving, by the time he can, he's swinging still, you know, some, there could be an object on your door leaving, like when you leave the keys in the lock that keeps doing it for a good while. Right. So, so it's possible and if that's the case, but it was still moving, so it was physically door was physically open and physically open on the way back. Very good. Anything else?

00:16:33--> 00:16:33

Uh huh.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

What do you mean? Sorry?

00:16:44--> 00:16:44

Uh huh.

00:16:47--> 00:17:26

Right, excellent. Yeah, that's a very nice point. You know, it's amazing how one of the one of the things that you get from the story of the salon motto is the importance and the place of Salah. True, almost every scholar and the speaker here, talking about this topic will tell you it shows you the importance in the place of Salah that every commandment came from a large region through jabril brought it down to the processor center. So everything came down to envy sauce and lamb. But the obligation of Salalah being for the salaat being five times a day, the problem came up to receive the obligation and it shows you the importance of Salah that wasn't just sent down with it that

00:17:26--> 00:17:38

problem had to come and speak directly to Allah. We agreed she was the greatness of Silla, the importance of and the place of Salah if you now make this whole journey, a dream, what does he do?

00:17:39--> 00:18:01

It brings it lower than anything. Yeah. And he, he just came in a dream the Salah, and in many other things. jabril would physically come and speak to the person. I'm about it. Now though, the most important thing just came in a dream. You bring it even come physically. So it totally shifts the story. upside down. If you if you look consider it as a dream. Okay. Very nice.

00:18:02--> 00:18:02

Huh?

00:18:05--> 00:18:05

What do you mean?

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

Are you Oh, I want

00:18:15--> 00:18:30

Excellent. Excellent. Yes. That someone asked a question last week. That was there. What kind of solo was legislated before? The obligatory salaat became five. Anyone remember? Anyone know the answer? He just said it actually pulled up

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

on all the Muslims.

00:18:38--> 00:18:38

I won.

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

I won, but okay.

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

Okay, what else?

00:18:50--> 00:19:28

Anything, okay. And it is good to see that there was there was Salah, and it was the same salah and same movements. And there's some early narrations that will tell you that a young man here being the prophets of Allah seldom came stood in front of the Kaaba made some start to make some strange movements. Then a boy came and stood next to him that was a little bit low on who. And then then a woman came and stood behind and prayed with them. And then the narration says this was the Prosser lamb and Ali and Khadija in the early early stages that they were praying. So there was prayer, and there was the tahajud, the night prayer that was obligated on the profits and loss in them as well.

00:19:28--> 00:19:51

But it wasn't obligatory to pray. And so there were two prayers, as some scholars explained the the prayer in the early part of the day and prayer in the later part of the day. But beyond that, you could do as much as you want. You could add to that or not add to that it was open. And after this incident, they became five obligatory prayers for the

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

the rock that's floating, and it's still floating. Yeah, no good.

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

Nice This is they say that there's a rock where the rock where the person stepped off from to go into the heavens. And that rock is it's a big rock, but it's floating off the air, it's hovering. It's not touching the ground. And you hear it a lot. I don't know where the rock, the hovering rock story came from Initially, I never looked into it, Danny, who wants to research that and let us know next Sunday inshallah, who will research the story of the rock? where it came from? It's actually right there on Islam QA and I've seen it so it's easy enough. You're gonna do that? Excellent. So your dad's gonna have to tell us next Sunday.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

Okay, what else? What's proof that it was

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

an actual, physical journey?

00:20:44--> 00:20:49

There are many, many other points and maybe I have at least six other points or maybe five

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

doses?

00:21:02--> 00:21:41

Uh, huh. Okay. Okay. Yeah. So the extra details even the way the buraq moves, all of that is typically not is not typical of a dream nanny. The means of transportation. On that same note, the Mirage itself. Okay. Oh, there was an excellent question last Sunday. I don't know if this was done after the class or during the classroom. Remind me? Someone asked. I think it was during the class. Yeah. Someone asked, why is it that they met? Yeah, who's done class. So when asked why the Mirage was not described, while the rock was described in detail, its color, how it moved what it looked like. And it was compared to animals that we might know the mule, the donkey, but the marriage

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

wasn't described at all.

00:21:44--> 00:21:47

Barely at all, we just said that we know that the Mirage is an instrument

00:21:48--> 00:21:55

used to go from down to ascend upwards. And that's all the description that was given to us. We discussed this last time, right?

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

And what do we say?

00:22:00--> 00:22:30

Yeah, we said that Yanni a lower lumea. And that if that imagine the problem was to describe the marriage, you think we would understand it? And it today, as much as we know physics and brothers go to say it and stuff, we still don't understand how an instrument can make you cross severe, huge distances like this. What about the vacuum in spirit? How does it work? So what's the value of trying to describe most of the data would be just describing the marriage most of it will be

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

for, for the

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

awa eye, larger

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

exam workload, realistically.

00:22:48--> 00:23:11

Yeah, and even if you understood it, it's not it's not part of the like the benefit of the story and how the President got to the heavens. What's most important is what happened when he got to the heavens. He saw some of the punishments of the Hellfire some of the rewards of Paradise he saw. He spoke to a large audience to determine the furthermost lottery. That's what's most important. Salah was legislated how he got there.

00:23:12--> 00:23:23

It's not that important. And it's like someone tells you where were you allowed to haven't seen you in a while? That Well, I went to Somalia for the visit the family did you travel first class or economy? It doesn't matter.

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

What How is the family? What happened when you got there is more important. I don't care how you got there. Yeah.

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

Excellent. So so it's not part of the most important focus for them.

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

Anyone?

00:23:44--> 00:24:01

Hmm. So the the punishment of the Hellfire, like when the Muslim would see in this dream, these people would be punished and people would be punished in a certain way for a certain sin. Are those people who are actually in the Hellfire at the time? Or are they just descriptions of what would actually happen to them?

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

Hillary's a fifth people.

00:24:08--> 00:24:08

Huh?

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

Okay, anyone else?

00:24:19--> 00:24:19

Okay.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

Okay, but we're coming to that point.

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

Yes, hold on.

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

Okay, Zane.

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

Mm

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

hmm. Okay.

00:25:17--> 00:25:17

Okay.

00:25:19--> 00:25:19

Okay.

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

All right. I actually don't think this was mentioned in rays of faith Calgary, it was mentioned in rays of faith in New York.

00:25:29--> 00:26:06

So I remember from New York and Anyways, this just explained that there are there were some scholars who felt or believed that yes, these were actual people in the Hellfire and others that no the judgment begins after the prophets of Salaam, make sujood under the throne and begin and make certain praises of Allah, then the books will start to land in people's hands, then the judgment begins and then people go to Paradise and the hellfire. So that hasn't happened yet. So some scholar said that those were just people shown to the process a lump so he would be aware or to see the types of punishment and not necessarily people in the Hellfire at that moment.

00:26:07--> 00:26:52

Okay, remember also from the story that one of the one of the benefits is that the one of the things that honored the process lm is that he became the Kaleem of Allah. We said musala salam was the name of Allah. And Ibrahim alayhis salam was the hollein. And the prophet SAW Selim got both honors to become the hunted and the Kelly move Allah the callee means that Allah spoke to him directly with no translator, or interpreter between him and the last panel. Tada. So part of that honor of being the Kalam of Allah is Allah speaks to you directly. And if it's a dream, it's not the same honor is it is really not the same honor. And, and nothing in the dream is, is the same as being in real life.

00:26:53--> 00:27:03

You can't tell a lie, eat some delicious mango just today, in my dream, doesn't count. You can tell me I went to Australia and it counts because it was in your dream. So it's not the same andriani

00:27:06--> 00:27:27

I want them I got a check for a million dollars in my dream. But when I woke up, it wasn't there. So it's not the same honor. If I woke up with some of my pillow, then I'm honored. So for the Prophet Selim to be a Kaleem of Allah, it's a bigger honor if you actually spoke to Allah, not if he saw in a dream, and he hears Allah speak to him. It's a bigger honor, actually.

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

But also November also,

00:27:33--> 00:27:57

that just says that the processor lamb saw from some great signs from his Lord, this was part of the honor also that he would see great signs of his Lord, one of those great signs, he saw jabril, I saw him in his original form. And again, it's more of a big deal if the proxim actually saw jabril in his original form, rather than just in a dream saw that he sees the form of jabril la Santa.

00:27:58--> 00:28:20

Also, there's any other issues like knocking at the each one of the doors of the heavens. And then dindo Angela asked who was and then they would give permission and open and they would knock in the second heaven, and knock at the third and knock at the fourth and knock at the fifth and knock at the sixth and the seventh, all this detail Yani and you know, knocking to enter and permissions and all that further

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

moves it to be less likely of a dream than it is an actual journey.

00:28:28--> 00:29:11

But I think also on the issue of the processor, Lam being nervous The next day, about the about explaining the issue, yet he didn't keep it to himself. So he immediately told people what he saw, because this was the Dow and this was the message that he's entrusted with. So even if it might cause personal embarrassment for him, or people to disbelieve him, or to accuse him of lying or anything like that, he's still went with that obligation and told the and as we said, in the narration of him, honey telling him, don't tell this to people, he still told us Allah went ahead and told it to people. And then we remember we said, then they start to ask him, what the testing of

00:29:11--> 00:29:36

his truthful. So the people who had seen by to the Maccabees told them describe it and mark this to us. And he described it a little bit based on that brief moment where he prayed there. Then they start to ask about many of these, how many pillars runs, how many windows What color are the handles? What too much detail? He said, Then Allah subhanaw taala brought the image of beta necklace right in front of me. So I could see everything and every strange detail they asked about, I could tell them

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

every little detail. And so then they said a minute for cadoola hit us up and as for the description, or law, he got it accurately. He has it done as they say, because so but still they refuse to believe even after the caravan came. They said we heard the voice of someone telling us where the last camel is. The lead camel was as as he described to us a lamb. Yes, we had to continue

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

water, the water decreased and they still refuse to believe the process. And shortly after this event is one also the the splitting of the moon happens. And so after all these great signs and they're still refusing to believe, pipe

00:30:17--> 00:30:46

remember we discuss the we didn't really discuss what we started speaking last time about about giants and who because he said a problem So Adam alayhis salam, and he said he was 60 there are 60 arm lengths really, really huge. And he said that human beings would decrease in stature. From that moment. Yeah, for that time from from Adam Addison. onwards. Right? And that's why the people of No, no Hello Salaam the scholars also called him the second Adam.

00:30:47--> 00:31:27

The second Adam Allah says in the Quran to reiterate and Hamilton Amano for the offspring of those that were carried on the ark along with no so here's the second item because kind of like the generation started again after Nohara Sarah and allows you to describes the people of North was was the config tree buster. And Allah also increased you inside. So the people who have not were bigger again. And again, people start to get smaller and smaller and smaller. So we'll look at some, these are some of the images we spoke about last time. If you can see them. This one is a bit small. But this is basically a giant skeleton. This is an excavation site. So you can see that's a small guy

00:31:27--> 00:31:37

right there small man and is smaller than the skull. There's another skull small guy watching over this is the skeleton of a giant man. Right? And then

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

more of them. Another Giant Man found in I don't know, Sudan or something.

00:31:44--> 00:31:49

And then that's that same one. Okay, can you can't see it? Well, ah.

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

I thought that would pixelated but okay.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

You see that?

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

another giant skeleton

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

of a giant one again.

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

Even the kids are saying there's no such thing as a giant skeleton.

00:32:21--> 00:32:24

These are two, Mashallah they were sleeping and

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

they didn't wake up. They died in their dream.

00:32:30--> 00:32:30

Okay.

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

This is another one, I'll try to enlarge it.

00:32:37--> 00:32:49

These are people that's a small guy. That's a small man. And this is the skeleton, this is a huge grave. Okay. And every email will tell you something different about it. This is another one. If you look there's a

00:32:51--> 00:33:00

there's a tractor or some kind of machine there. And this is how big the skeleton is. Now we're not going to spend too much time on it because as we said last week, they're all fake. Right? So the first one

00:33:04--> 00:33:08

this one is actually this scene. That's the original scene.

00:33:10--> 00:33:24

If I remember correctly, this is the an actual excavation site of a mastodon if I'm not mistaken, and basically some guy with Photoshop, took this out, put a human skeleton in it, and then added another guy in there.

00:33:25--> 00:34:08

Okay, this is an actual site National Geographic. And the guy basically lying for the sake of Dawa made it look like that. And if you look at it, a lot of things don't make sense to me. Nobody puts a shovel into a fossil like no one puts a shovel. You know how they excavate fossils they use brushes and spoons. Even if it takes months to use a spoon a teaspoon when a brush because they don't want to damage the fossil this guy Mashallah with the shovel right near the head. So, and actually initially when I saw the, the shovel, so Alice's fake, nobody does this with a shovel. They initially one of these emails that went out saying this is the empty quarter Valhalla in Saudi

00:34:08--> 00:34:18

Arabia and Aramco, your people were doing excavating. And they found this, and they believed this to be one of the sons of Adam, and it sounds like a fantastic story.

00:34:19--> 00:34:41

It's similar to the incident of the splitting of the moon. Why isn't it? Why is it that today people find fossils of small man, they find a piano, but why don't they find giant skeletons today, when they dig? How come they don't find huge skulls, big teeth. And so this proof then that humans were big, as Islam said.

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

And other scriptures say none.

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

It'll be

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

Yeah. Well, Adam, it seems that it will be too much of a sign. And it's too much to find the skeleton of something bigger than this room, huge like that. And so you see, this is one of the descendants of Adam

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

Other monies Salam was that big because the whole idea of under the whole test is for people to believe in the unseen, right? And a lot of times people want to demand very huge clear signs from Allah subhanaw taala. But that's, that would defeat the purpose. Yeah. And if your professor tells you, and

00:35:18--> 00:35:49

your professor tells you, you have a huge exam, be prepared, he keeps threatening you about the exam when you come, the answers are on the board. Is it a test? The answers are there. It's not a test. Many non Muslims will tell you, well, Why doesn't God appear on TV and speak to us? Okay, honey, they don't even think when they see things like that. appear on TV and which channels then there's going to be each network will say, No, we want to broadcast this and then and how much it's gonna cost for commercials on that one.

00:35:50--> 00:36:25

Well, a superbowl commercial is a million dollars a second now what? God's on TV, honey, the it's not realistic Yani Hmm. For, for if you see the unseen, it's not a test anymore. If Iran saw the unseen at the end, when he saw angels of death coming. He believed at that point. It's too late. Every atheist in the history of humanity, when they saw the Angel of Death coming, they believed, but it's too late. And that's why when you have major signs, it's too late to believe like when the sun comes out from the west, it's too late to repent after that, or when

00:36:26--> 00:36:55

what's the other one adopt, but the beast, when it comes out, it's too late to repent after that, because it's a major, major sign. And the dub is going to label people as men and confident even people in the market will cause call each other by these labels, you know, your movement, how much of the tomatoes, your comforter causes much per kilo like that, for it's too late, and it's too big of a sign or LA alum? And that's probably why people won't unearth something of that magnitude. stuff. They don't see something.

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

Uh huh.

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

That's true. That's true, actually. And there are actually studies that say that I knew there was one study that this was like,

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

early 90s, or late 80s. That said that the the, than the average height of Japanese citizens increased by two inches. After the introduction of American fast food into the culture, the people start to get bigger, you know, eating all this good, good chemical stuff.

00:37:59--> 00:37:59

Anyway, yeah.

00:38:05--> 00:38:06

Excellent.

00:38:16--> 00:38:32

So relevant stuff is for those who can't hear his saying that I think we're done here. He's saying that it you know, people were shrinking. And then because of what happened with the the food industry and suddenly, the shrinking stopped for a while. Excellent. But

00:38:34--> 00:38:34

where are we?

00:38:38--> 00:38:40

Okay, so, let's see here.

00:38:41--> 00:39:25

So we said from from the story overall, then you see the importance of the Salah. The problem is being honored, it comes after such a difficult time. And this is the greatest honor the person could receive. The It was also a test for the Muslims at that time to believe in it or not. And that's why when a worker was told of this incident, he came running to the Prophet saws alum. And he said, Did you go to beta and mock this last night and wake up amongst us today? And the Muslim said, Yes, and a worker said, so. And the professor told him what enter our work as a new worker are acidic. And from it is said from that day, he became known as a work acidic. And then people started to fault

00:39:25--> 00:39:50

our workers saying, how could you believe something like this? How could you believe that he could make a journey within a few moments, you know, an hour or a few hours, and it takes us two months? It takes us a year, a month to go on a month to come back? So how can you believe that? No book explained it to them using logic. He believed it because he was logical. And I think we mentioned this point last week. A lot of times some authors

00:39:51--> 00:39:57

they present a book it's I think it's a low alum Yani it's a miss.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

It's an incorrect analysis.

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

of the personality of a worker. Some authors will write about him, they make it look as if he's just, you know, any, whatever is everything you tell him he believe it. So this is what it means no. And you have many integrations from companions who used to say, oh, Booker was the smartest one amongst us. He was the smartest one. And these analysis were very intelligent. So here, he believed it, not because he or she has everything that comes from Mohammed sauce, Allah, I'll just take it as that he had logic. So he said, I believe in something greater than that. I believe him in news that comes to him from above the seven heavens, yani from Allah xuejun news comes to him in an instant,

00:40:37--> 00:41:04

or meaning revelation or I would ask him a question, he would be quiet. And then jabril would inform him this coming straight from a lesson Hunter. This is bigger than a physical journey on Earth. True or false? You telling them to believe that they're not believe that he can go physically from Mecca to Jerusalem, has nothing. But based on his logic, and he, he believed in the prophets of the lotus and then also

00:41:05--> 00:41:19

the Kyani during again during the Treaty of de BIA. And Omar would would go to Obama and ask him questions, and he'd go to the column. And, and oberkommando would give answers similar to those of

00:41:21--> 00:41:25

the vendor bisazza that we mentioned in class last week, two weeks ago, we mentioned

00:41:27--> 00:41:33

that we'll have up the serie of that, too. How about when I talk about one obatala that selasa when

00:41:35--> 00:42:14

when American lost was in charge of it, we mentioned that. And a lot of strange things happened and lost with just Muslim for six months. And he's put in charge of a book and to Omar and great Sahaba, who were there since Mecca, and suddenly they put American last six months old Muslim, as their leader, and he has to lead them in Salah. And then so many things happened. And every time Omar Abdullah would complain, and he would complain to us and he wouldn't listen to him. Then he complained to Obama. In the end of the book, he says something phenomenal tomorrow the line, he said, had he not been better than you as a leader in this instance, President wouldn't have chosen

00:42:14--> 00:42:54

chosen him over you personally always chose the perfect man for the job. He always chose the right gut. It's not like you know, whatever. In our life today or elections today, the great guy, the better one loses because the other guy had more money and went more advertising or smeared this guy. President will always choose the right person. And we believe that he said, any, why would he just analyze it? Why would the alum choose someone who just became Muslim six months, put him as a leader on above a worker above? Because he's the right person for this specific job. And that's why he was chosen. So that was the answer that was given to him by obok when they finally returned to Medina.

00:42:55--> 00:43:16

What happened? They brought all the complaints against him. And he was right in every single one of them. So that means by extension Jani on what was wrong and every single one of them and I will book her knew the problem made the right choice. He didn't have the arguments, but he knew presumably the right so they did it based on logic not just based on okay except whatever comes comes. Okay.

00:43:19--> 00:43:24

So he said it was a test for a lot of the Muslims and some of them who said left Islam.

00:43:25--> 00:44:10

The Muslim saw some of the punishments of the Hellfire some of the punishments, some of the rewards. And so then we have someone who actually saw punishments in the Hellfire and he or saw the Hellfire itself funny, right? Like one time some a non Muslim was was telling a Muslim How do we know all this stuff? No one ever saw it. So the Muslim is a Muslim? He said yes. Process Salaam saw it. And there's a difference. When, when there's a difference between knowing a place exists and someone actually seeing it. Right? And even Allah mentions these differences. I need that to you right now. There's a difference between knowing something and then seeing it and then actually touching it or

00:44:10--> 00:44:15

tasting it. True. And that's what Allah says always in the Quran, Allah mentions El Bulli of pain.

00:44:17--> 00:44:40

I know your pain, and hopefully Okay, there's a difference. Because if I if someone trustworthy, told you, there's an apple in my pocket, I trust him. I believe it without even seeing the apple in your pocket. I know. This person is truthful. He doesn't lie. I believe 100% there's an apple in your pocket. It's as good as seeing it. But even though this person is so trustworthy, when he takes the apple out of his pocket, you believe more now.

00:44:41--> 00:44:55

You didn't think he was alive But no, you believe it more because you saw with your own eyes, that's I know your pain. And then it could still be wax fruit. It could be a toy Apple could be plastic. Right? Then he gives you a new taste. Now that's how cool Yeah,

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

and that's why any when you reach a genealogical

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

We'll destroy a lot of times in the Quran Hochuli again, because people will actually feel it and taste it. And they'll notice reality. So, so the Prophet said lamb then, beyond l malleotrain. It became finally attained, he saw also and he was physically with his eyes saw any heaven and the Hellfire will.

00:45:22--> 00:45:23

Okay.

00:45:25--> 00:45:25

Where are we?

00:45:28--> 00:45:28

But

00:45:29--> 00:45:34

anyone else? Anything from the journey, any point that you picked up?

00:45:36--> 00:45:36

Anything further?

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

So you're saying, Let me see if I understand.

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

The analogy

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

to explain.

00:46:48--> 00:46:48

Excellent.

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

Excellent, excellent.

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

Jimmy.

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

He will say, Hey,

00:47:04--> 00:47:35

give me an excellent. Yeah, that's very true. So chef, a lot of is saying that non logical affair, he's saying that it's, it's interesting how the focus of the kurush was on the physical part of the journey they didn't, they didn't get to or care about the second part, you know, ascending, and most of the focus was on just how could you possibly go from here to there, then even get to the second half of the story? Just how could you possibly do this, and ended up here the same night? And so probably, I mean, you know,

00:47:37--> 00:48:17

they obviously they didn't know, I didn't have the means of communication that we have today. But it's amazing how for two Muslims and Muslim that found that hard to believe at that time, and a Muslim today, how it's, it's so easy to believe it today, that you can go and come back because of the means of trust position that we have. And these are things that men created. And the airplanes is and these inventions, their own man made creations, and they enable us to believe such a thing. But what if now, it's, it's a creation of a large budget, I should believe 10 times more even. So, if I can believe because of manmade creations that yes, it's possible to go to bed and monsters and

00:48:17--> 00:48:36

come back the same day, because of manmade creations. But then what if I focus on the creation of Allah? subhanaw taala? Could I then Believe it or not? It's just interesting how, and if you took a Muslim from today, and put him back at that moment, he would be like as normal. We do it all the time. Right. So upon, okay.

00:48:38--> 00:48:40

Anything else from anywhere from the story?

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

Told them?

00:48:43--> 00:48:44

I told them.

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

Excellent, very good. pipe. So then we'll go over again some of the points we said about the Mr. lochsa.

00:49:40--> 00:49:56

We said interestingly, that I referred to it as msgid even though at that point, it wasn't technically MSG. It wasn't under Muslim control or anything like that. But Allah subhanaw taala called it a Masjid and some scholars point in this a beautiful point, that it's an indication and a subtle.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Yeah, Bushra Shani

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

I was like it was a subtle, glad tiding that this place is also going to be part of the control of the land under your oma. And it's going to be msgid even though it's not today.

00:50:12--> 00:50:12

None.

00:50:14--> 00:50:47

I wha Excellent. So then, then Allah subhanaw taala mentions the Baraka in, in the land, which is the Baraka is in its trees, and its fruit and its waters, that there's Baraka that there's blessing in that area. And that we said, also from its importance is that the say that all this, all the prophets at some point visited and must see the Aqua and the process. Elam was no different. He also visited that the buzzard place. And it's one of the, you know, one of the three holiest sites on earth, and for the Muslims, specifically for the system.

00:51:07--> 00:51:46

Absolutely, Annie, as you know, many people when they asked you, you know, do you have a choice in life? Or is everything chosen for you? Or can you do anything? And if I put down this pan, am I putting it down? Or is Allah making me put it down? and things like that? And it's gonna say, The correct answer is that it's a combination of things, right. And there's some things that are within your control. Like, right now, you can anyone in this room can just get up and leave and walk out true. And it's absolutely within your control, you can get up and leave. But you can't decide, before you get up and leave, I'm gonna get home safely to and nothing's gonna happen to me, you

00:51:46--> 00:52:08

can't decide that part. That's up to Allah subhanaw taala. And it is no one who's gonna decide, well, I want to die when I'm 76. And from natural causes, I don't want to die from cancer from anything like that. No, you can't make that choice. So that means life is a mixture of things that are within your control, and then certain things that are decreed that will happen to you. And you are, you cannot control these things.

00:52:10--> 00:52:11

Okay, anyone else?

00:52:25--> 00:52:55

Right, and that's right. And I'm just, that's what we were doing. Maybe I think, I don't think you were hitting the beginning. But we were discussing in the very beginning, that the bed of the porcelain was warm, so that means he left and he came back when the bed was still warm. So he physically left that he physically got on an animal, that he physically drank the water on his way back because he was physically thirsty. So all this has proved that it wasn't the soul it was actually the the physical body and soul making this journey.

00:52:56--> 00:53:38

And then beings and speaking to Allah, all these things are actually physical. And the description in the Quran of him being the taken as the word only refers to you the body and the soul and not to the soul only because the scholars say that would it would have been an extra Bureau, Abdi, and he, he took the soul of his journey of his servant on a night journey, but he took the ABS himself, which is the body and the spirit. So we concluded and this is actually the authentic opinion that it is the body and the Spirit. And this was the original belief. And people later on are trying to come in and push this belief out and say no, it was just a dream and, and things of that sort.

00:53:39--> 00:53:41

Um, what else

00:53:51--> 00:54:40

did we discuss that? We did? Yeah, we discussed Yes. The integration of eyeshadow della Han, Han and Buhari, she said, Whoever tells you that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw or has seen his Lord, he has light. Danny is saying if anyone tells you that the President actually saw Allah subhanaw taala he has lied to you. The film was asked by a boozer Hello, have you seen your Lord? And the answer was neuron an aura. He said basically, I knew there was light so how could I see him? So the process alum did not see Allah subhanaw taala but he saw the Danny saw a number of things he's there was the light of Eliza gel. And he saw the the reaction of the lottery. And it was reacting to the light of

00:54:40--> 00:54:47

Allah subhanaw taala shining or hitting it, but he did not actually see Allah subhanaw taala there is a discussion

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

even about sort of the law on Hamas. He doesn't say Muslim. He saw him with his heart. Okay. He saw him with his heart meaning, not with his eyes. He didn't actually any. So I'm with him.

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

heart doesn't mean he actually saw something. But

00:55:03--> 00:55:39

like he met with a lust pantalla when he was at that level, and he was looking down, there was the light of Allah, he could hear a larger gel, but he didn't see Allah subhanaw taala physically. And that's why sometimes you'll find it nobis in other places, talking about how the president saw Allah, you understand the statement of IP nobis with this other statement, if not best, explaining that he saw him with his heart. So whenever he says yes, when when the President saw or anything like that, he referred back to the statement he means he saw him again with his heart and

00:55:40--> 00:55:53

there isn't anything he said. And so that is the stronger opinion. And this there were the stronger evidence is that a lot of them did not see physically look at a lot as a legit.

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

But no.

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

Yeah, you can use that. Because

00:56:03--> 00:56:04

Yeah.

00:56:06--> 00:56:28

Sure, fun. najem is praising the eyesight of the prostate lump, that it didn't swerve and it didn't transgress its bounds. It wasn't even trying really to take a peek or to look up and see any schelotto B's saying it could possibly use that is to say that, that for some didn't look at his Lord Spano. Todd. Okay. What else?

00:56:29--> 00:56:31

Anything else? Any other contemplations?

00:56:32--> 00:56:34

Or any other benefits you get for the?

00:56:48--> 00:56:48

Uh huh.

00:57:33--> 00:57:48

Okay, well, I don't know, I've never ever had any read or heard of that. And that doesn't mean it's not authentic. But I am not aware of them whatsoever. And I'm not aware of any other stuff at all, on the journey back from the marriage.

00:57:50--> 00:58:07

And also, the personal and remember, he met musala Cinema 267 he met musala, a restaurant himself and most ashram welcomed him. And we said that was another way of honoring someone is when everyone's expecting your arrival. So that's why every one of the prophets told them to tell the president welcome.

00:58:11--> 00:58:46

An o h, o honored Prophet, righteous prophet and righteous brother, except for Abraham, I sent him an Adam alayhis salam, they said, righteous son. So all of them were honoring and meeting the process of them like that. And that's greater than just to go to a place where Moses spoke to Allah supercilium met Moses and the journey and spoke to Allah azzawajal. So it's almost Yani like, a lower level to go to a place where someone else spoke to Allah, when you met that person and spoke to allow yourself during the same journey will load on Anna. Okay, anyone else? Anything else?

00:58:49--> 00:58:58

Anything else? Any any other benefits that you would get from the story of marriage? Was the date for the Go ahead.

00:59:14--> 00:59:20

Excellent. That's a very good point. Very nice circle. So if any of Allah subhanaw taala could take

00:59:21--> 00:59:30

a sigh Salaam for what was the 2000 years. walk in the room go for a small part of the night. Very nice points.

01:00:15--> 01:00:54

How long the dounia trick? how long the dounia time was? Yeah. And that's basically what they're alluding to, when they mentioned that the bed was too warm or this was too wet. All these are to give us a worldly sense of how long it takes. Because, yeah, it's not obviously, by the minute, but it gives you a sense, and you and all of us. And when you get up from your bed at night, and you come back, and it's still warm, you have a rough idea of how long you are away. And if you go and you check your emails, and you get a drink, and you eat, and you come back, it's not warm anymore. So you it's it's a reference that you would be familiar with in this world.

01:00:55--> 01:00:56

And that's all it is.

01:00:58--> 01:01:00

Okay, I have a question. Next week.

01:01:04--> 01:01:22

Let's How about next week we do the processor lumps dialogue with the different groups and different tribes to see who is going to give him support and allow him to that sound good? Or is there any other incident you want? Because from that point, we start to prepare for the hijra.

01:01:23--> 01:02:03

Unless there's any point someone wants to do before that I purposely skipped the first digit Abyssinia, the second digit on because it doesn't. Yeah, I mean, there's benefit, obviously, but what we're trying to do is go over detailed points and specific lessons and wisdom. So So that's it, we're all agreed, we do that next time inshallah. Because really, you'll find some amazing things there. Were, there were many people that came close to being the answer. But handler last moment, they'll ask for things like, after you die, we're in charge after you just like basically want to inherit the control, you know, the person then would leave it, he wouldn't accept it. So maybe I'll

01:02:03--> 01:02:26

change their mind later, he wouldn't accept. So there were interesting dialogues that went back and forth, until the problem decided and settled on the answer. And we'll do that in Sharla next week, but anything else there's four minutes, we can stop, you can prepare for the Salah. Does anyone have any other observation anything about or any benefits from the slot in marriage?

01:02:53--> 01:03:14

Excellent. duckula. And that's, that's a very important point bought a coffee. And that's actually one of the most important things are what are the biggest benefits out of fitna? Anyone, Allah tests people, why does Allah test people like that? Because when when people are tested, and some people leave Islam, or some people break, and some people run away, it leaves you with what?

01:03:18--> 01:03:58

They were the strongest, the best, the purest. So how does the word fitness itself when you look at it, that's what it means. And when you when you lift in something like they will tell you that they will say, and if attend to the hub will fill up your knee. When you return to the hub, it doesn't mean you attempted the golden rule, it means you put the gold over a flame the heat, and because golden is natural form, it has other things mixed with other ores. But when you purify it with fire, what comes out pure gold. And then what? Who isn't the same people, the stuff that comes out what else comes out, other impurities, other metals come out, but when you when you put it in the fire,

01:03:58--> 01:04:32

pure gold, pure gold comes out. Same thing with the oma. Right? When they're tested, who who remains and who survives the test, the purest and the best. And that's why the scholars say and that's part of possibly part of the wisdom behind when someone became Muslim in the early Mexican period. Did you have to even doubt that they're sincere. No one would enter a religion where you're going to get burned and beaten for entering it unless you really sincere for the sake of Allah. That's why the scholars and historians say hypocrisy only entered Islam after what?

01:04:35--> 01:04:59

After the hedgerow, and specifically after what the buckle of butter. Why? Because then the Muslims are starting to have some strength. And so many people hypocrites started to pretend to be Muslims because Muslims were strong. But when Muslims are weak, no one's gonna pretend there were no hypocrites in Mecca. Why on earth would they go through that? So the test keeps the best and the purest and this test this was one of the

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

benefits that came out of it also, is that the best and purest Muslims remained. And those who were shaky to begin with, they left Islam because they couldn't handle that test. So that's one of the benefits of the fit and and the testing

01:05:13--> 01:05:14

thing will last comment for the

01:05:26--> 01:05:27

Excellent.

01:05:32--> 01:05:33

Excellent.

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

Dracula

01:05:39--> 01:06:15

is asking and he's saying the people who left Islam is there anything to say that? No, someone went back to them give them Tao again, they came back to Islam later on. I'm just gonna answer I personally have not read any narration that mentioned their names. I do know that they're authentic notions that say some people even left Islam, but I've never seen a region that said so and so on. So sonsuza left Islam. And if there was such integration, then you could easily just go back and see, did they die upon Islam or not? Then you would be able to answer if they returned back to Islam or not. But as far as I know, I've never seen an integration. And if anyone knows anything that

01:06:15--> 01:06:32

mentions names of people who left Islam after Aslan Mirage Feel free to share by Jacques Lacan for attentive listening and until inshallah Next time, we'll continue with the dialogues. So Lama Baraka, Mohammed was up in Maine. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
