Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. I mean,
early he will be here Jemaine and my bad. So welcome. Thank you for joining us and hamdulillah. Today everything is working as opposed to last week, I've got the high tech led boards here that have the points on them.
We're talking about the signs before the day of judgment. Now, when you're talking about the signs before the day of judgment, you're dealing with the unseen. So you're talking about things that will happen in the future things that sometimes we've been given limited information. So the perfect knowledge is with Allah subhanaw taala, the perfect wisdom is with Allah subhanaw taala. So because we're dealing with the unseen, and people love, conjecture, and guess, guesswork, and they are taken by, you know, the mysterious, so they try to come up with explanations, and they end up sometimes being ridiculous, sometimes being harmful. And they end up with estimations to the point where they
put themselves in the place of someone who knows the unseen. And for that reason, it is very important that before you just jump into the signs or read the signs, you have to understand some of the guidelines that come with dealings with the sun before the day of judgment. We know that the Day of Judgment itself, only Allah subhanaw taala knows when it will happen, the angels don't know and navy sallallahu wasallam doesn't know.
it's, it is fruitless to try to even come up with an estimation of when it's going to be there's some people who tried to calculate backwards. Alright, so basically what they did, for one, some relied or there is a weak Hadith that says that the 10 major signs before the day of judgment, and the last one being the great fire. So that that's really there at the Day of Judgment. There's a weak Hadith that says the 10 major signs are 50 years apart. That means from the first major sine, and to the last one, we've got 500 years. So it's 500 years from the first one to the Day of Judgment. Now,
what's interesting is, if they now can calculate roughly when the math is going to come out, they just add 500 years to that. And they can now roughly estimate the Day of Judgment, it will never work like that. And first of all, it is weak, you cannot rely on that we can get like that. So here are some guidelines. And we'll go to our first point on the board there. And it says don't stop dunya related hair. Don't stop doing your related hair. If you're doing some good whether you live during a sign or you feel a sign is near you keep doing what you're doing. This is a beautiful Hadith narrated by Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah. And we saw seldom said either a comet a PSA, if it is the
day of judgment, or fear, the honeycomb
fasciola and in the hands of one of you is a seed fully of Russia, then he should plant it. And he it's just, of course, it's hyperbole, it's like it's an exaggerated way of saying it of encouraging work. So exaggerated way of saying keep doing the good. If you made a hole in the earth, and the ground, and you have a seed in your hand, and you're about to plant this tree, and before you plant it, you realize it's the day of judgment.
The problem said failure is planted, keep doing work, keep doing good. Even if it's the day of judgment that seeds that plant does it have any chance of growing and into a nice tree or plant or bearing fruit in the earth is over? Why planted? So it's an A way of saying keep doing the good? So
imagine now someone says I'm not going to get married, why not? Get more? Why should I get married and start a family that the jealous here is going to show up after a few years. So what after put my children through the job and stuff like that and going to kindergarten with the jealous children.
So the idea is that you keep doing good and you keep living your life also, no matter what's going on.
Let me rephrase that. Within reason of course. All right. That was the first guideline. You don't stop any hair we keep doing the hair. The second point
is to increase in worship of Allah subhanaw taala
this is this is how to deal with the signs before the day of judgment so you don't stop doing good. You increase in the worship of Allah zodion This is a hadith narrated by Abu huraira it's mentioned inside Muslim enemies are seldom said bad disrobe.
Will armory fit and uncut pepper in a little Muslim? So the problem is saying, there are some fitten some tests and trials that are going to come, they're going to come down, like the black pieces of night. So he's saying, do a lot of good deeds before these things come to you do a lot of good deeds now, before the day when these black tests and trials follow or come upon humanity. Then the President continues describing it used to be Harajuku, meaning a man wakes up a believer, William C. Cafiero and then in the evening, he's a disbeliever Oh, UMC, momina. And he's or he's a believer in the evening, will you be Oh kathira and he wakes up a disbeliever Joby rodina whoa Brr, the minute
dunia so he sells his religion for just a small morsel, some little bit of this dunya. So the Hadith is saying that
do good deeds before any kind of fitting is not talking about one specific one versus another elephant and in general, Corona, whatever it is, you're supposed to put effort into getting closer to Allah especially at times when there are no fit and because the vitton will come whether they're severe or whether there are slight any, you know, not as severe whether they're affect everybody or just a personal fitna and you and your personal life.
Then what is interesting is the Hadith is saying, if this is how you're supposed to act at times before the fit income, and excel in the worship of Allah, so then what about when the fit and do come even more so we're supposed to excel in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala if any of you heard what it was soon as hookah fry the hook, but today
very important message like, you know, this is something that has taken or we're talking about the Coronavirus, right taking lives and is affected, even if it hasn't taken as many lives as those who are infected. It has affected our world affected our gatherings affected our Masjid, or Salawat. Our community, our teaching for our kids, is affected so many things. So in the end, you look at the response of people, and it's again, binge watching Netflix and just spending hours doing things that you know, are useless. How many times how many people actually intensified their worship of Allah azza wa jal during these times, how many people are reciting a lot more Koran than before and so on
and so forth. People are just bored, so they just want to entertain themselves. So I'm saying the Hadith is saying that you increase your acts of worship, even before that, Fitton comes. So then what about when they fit in, and the trials and difficulties do come even more so? Alright, we'll move on to the next point. The next point and the so this is not when studying the signs, this is how to deal with the signs of the Day of Judgment. Number three, you remain steadfast, remain steadfast. And some Fitton, we're going to look at one today, the fitness you have to stay away from it, some fit and you have to stay away from people from society from individuals for a long period
of time, the duration can be quite long.
But you see, like look at the example now. And I'm not saying the Coronavirus is one of the signs before the day of judgment. I actually don't believe that personally. But look at his example now of people being steadfast. So you're supposed to remain in your homes and look at the example in America example in countries around the world. And I'm sure a lot of us have received WhatsApp videos of people who got sick and tired of staying at home or woman who got sick and tired of state staying at home and they walked out and the police came. And so look at that just remaining steadfast stay in your home. And people can handle that. And in their homes, they have internet,
they have computers, they have TV, they have all kinds of things. They can call people and talk to people and FaceTime people in zoom people. And still they can't remain in their homes remaining steadfast is a very important point of on how to deal with the signs before the day of judgment. Now we'll move on to the next point. I love this point. Don't test yourself.
And that's the golden rule with anything. Like you're not supposed to test your Eman you're not supposed to test anything that is dear to you. I for years have always been given the same example that in everyone has some kind of device some kind of screen that they love their phone, their tablet, and because you love it, you don't test it. Like I'm not gonna take my iPhone or, or my Galaxy or whatever it is and leave it in the park in the bench. And so Okay, let me leave it here and come back tomorrow and see if it's still here. Let me test if it will still be here. You don't touch something that's dear to you. And the same way the scholar said you don't test your email. You
don't put yourself in near danger or borderline near dangerous to see if you're strong enough to withstand
To make it or not, I can tell you some insane stories, but some of them wouldn't even be that kosher for lack of a better term. So I'm not going to go into that. But people who real stories of real people who tested themselves to see how much they could withstand and failed.
One of my favorites says this one is simple. People who pray with the TV on to test their home. Sure.
Allahu Akbar, on the televisions on how are we without the TV on it's a disaster for most people. Let's keep it real. For most people, it's a disaster even without the television, your brains going everywhere. And now the television on. I'll never forget, I was once listening to a lecture. This is a long time ago by the chef and someone sent him a question. So the chef sometimes I am following an important soccer match, and I don't want to miss the Salah. So I will pray in front of the TV as I'm watching the match. Is that permissible?
Just make sure that you may get aggravated with the goal. So when they score a goal, Allahu Akbar, right.
Anyways, not testing yourself. When did the journey emerges? How do you deal with that sign? The process says run away. Don't go test if you're a believer like to DeGeneres out. Well, this is exciting. I want to know if I'm a believer or not. And I knew that I'm gonna withstand him. Brazil, I'm specifically said that nobody said a man would go to him thinking that he's firm upon his religion. And then when he gets to him, he's just like, he is persuaded by the judge to follow or to believe in Him to follow him. You know? So, so you don't test yourself. You don't? You know, let me talk to the judge. Try to persuade him, try to get him to change his mind. It's always the time you
can make him change his mind. Just like you can't give our Shahada to a police. Or you're putting your shirt on that's with you the whole time. If you try, you can talk all night until you're blue in the face. He won't become Muslim.
He will look weird anyways, sitting alone in the room. Yeah, tequila, tequila, except this.
Anyways, Alright, we'll move on to the next point. Number five, you have to behave based on the instructions given by the prophet sallallahu wasallam. If the Jun comes, what are you supposed to do? process him said run away. If you hear that the MADI has come out the real one, not the crazy ones. If you hear the real Maddie has come out, What's your job? What do you have to do? What are the instructions? He gave you these instructions so you can follow them and act upon them? All right. The person Lam spoke to earth model the long line who in detail about his assassin who is the one that will assassinate him, the events leading up to it. So the
author of the law and who behaved according to the instructions given by the prophet sallallahu sallam. So what's the value of the Prophet I'm telling you what to do in the man he comes if you don't do it, for him said when the man he comes, you go to him and you make biotin. Even if you have to crawl over snow, crawl over the snow and give back to the mountain. So the signs were put there and the descriptions and the instructions are in the process so that you can act upon them. the Euphrates River, one of the signs also one of the minor signs is that the Euphrates River will dry up, and it will uncover a mountain of gold. Now, as we speak, and you can google this, the Euphrates
River is drying up as an epistle Selim mentioned, but it will dry up completely and it will uncover a mountain of gold. Then the president described what will happen to people trying to retrieve that gold. He said out of every 199 people will die trying to get the gold and one will make it so we'll get killed. I mean, the people are going to kill each other. That's how greedy they're gonna kill each other. So that can is it so let's say you're traveling when the when the mountain of gold is out, you've heard about it. It's okay. I'm gonna go get some gold. You see a man He's like, I'm going to get some gold to let's travel together. You travel together at night.
You go you get up, you kill him. No one having to take any of the first of all, it's a mountain of gold. Yes, it's a mountain. All right, where are you killing him for but people are killing each other. So they get more of it killing each other over this squirrel. And out of every 101 person makes it a 99 die. But then the Hadith says but everybody keeps going, thinking there'll be that one.
What does that what does that tell you? I mean, I know the odds are that there's a 99% chance I could get killed trying to do this. And I'm going to think to myself is a 99% chance I can get killed. That means there's a 1% chance of survival have a 1% chance that people are still going to keep going. So that means when you hear that the Euphrates river has dried up in a mountain
Gold has been uncovered underneath it. What should you do? act upon these instructions? That means don't go. Now if you are the first one to discover the mountain of gold and nobody else in the world knows, then come tell me. We will go get our share quickly. And then when everybody else hears about it, they can kill each other but we'll have our goal. That's the plan.
the Madea who said the Maddie the gel the fairies. Okay, how about this before the gel comes out? There's gonna be starvation worldwide is going to be really bad. It's not going to rain. This is on the third year, not a single drop will fall on earth and not a single plant will grow. Nobody saw Selim said all hoofed animals will die except for Allah wills. So the people then asked jasola How will people eat? And he said that their nourishment their energy will all come from saying Subhan Allah when hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, when they say that, there will be the equivalent of eating. Now if you don't know this hadith. And if you didn't follow the
instructions, how would you survive at that point? How would you survive? In no way you're just going to own your own guests that I bet you if I said Subhanallah Hamdulillah, it'll be like eating some chocolate kebab.
Never. And that's why we can do Rahim Allah, and he died about 800 years ago or so he said, this is from the importance of teaching the sons of the day of judgment to your offspring, and they teach it to their offspring, so that whatever of your your your progeny will be alive at that point, they know how to behave because they read their Howdy.
Alright, then we have some other points here.
Not all events will take place in our times.
Not just us, but every era, every century, people who are alive at that time have the tendency to explain the signs or to expect the signs to happen in their day or their lifetime. If you remember I mentioned last time about one of the scholars from Al Andalus. So this was hundreds of years ago, and he was so certain that the MADI will show up during his lifetime, that if he died before the mighty showed up, he would tell his students give them at the salon for me when he comes, he was so sure that we're living in and Maddie times. And today, based on what's up. Maddie is just right around the corner. He's gonna be here any minute. All right, based on the internet, maybe he's
already here. But
it doesn't have to take place in our times. And we don't have to interpret every sign to mean something that is happening in our current world. I gave the example last time of the Hadith that mentions a man's thigh will speak to him. Or maybe I didn't, I don't remember. But the point is, the Hadith mentions that a man's thigh will speak to him. So
we immediately explain that as the cell phone. And it could be the cell phone, but it can actually be a man's thighs speaking to him because that is out of the ordinary. And the other two things mentioned in the Hadith were out of the ordinary. So not everything has to be has to fit our world and it has to happen in our times.
All right, then moving on to the next point, which I've mentioned before, but it's a very important point. All the descriptions have to match. All the descriptions have to match. When are we on that screen?
The example I gave two weeks ago, if someone comes to you and says My name is Mohammed Abdullah, and the man his name is Mohammed Abdullah. So go ahead.
Well, first of all, is not kissing hands. I mean, Nikita, it's plage. basato So
So, okay, your name is Mohammed Abdullah. But what about all the other descriptions that would make you the man that will qualify you for being the Mandi? So you're not qualified right now. You have to fit all the descriptions. I gave you the example of the dead john, and how someone said that the gel is the TV because it's in every home and it lies and it's one night and he said the TV is in every home full of lies. And it has one screen. Okay, but what about the other descriptions that the gel cannot enter McCann Medina, that the gel will cut a young man in half did the gel will have an army he will have the ability to bring the treasures out of the ground. He will have a river of fire
with him and he will have a river of cold water with him. He will enter village after village and he will cause it terrain and vegetation to grow. How does that even come close to being a television screen? Or jujin judge
and we get creative. Oh man, some
came to me the other day and he said, your jujin judge are not behind the barrier, and they're out.
So Who are they? And this is like, again, it's a very embarrassing position to have. If you say your duty and majority are not behind the barrier, there are just a people who are out on Earth right now, then you have to tell me who those people are. And you now you're just calling people that have Muslims amongst them yet. That doesn't make any sense. And it does not in any way match the description of the Quran, and how the effort was put physical work was done to Trump them behind the barrier when we get to union dues, inshallah, we'll look at that, but it has you have to match all the descriptions. Okay, Corona is one of the Coronavirus is one of the signs of the Day of Judgment
type How is it one of the signs of first of all
in the sense that towards the end of times and maybe saw someone mentioned that diseases will increase illnesses will increase in that sense. Put Corona put SARS put aids put whatever you like. It's not a problem at this point. But there is no Hadith specifically speaking about Corona no howdy speaking about Corona specifically Coronavirus.
One of the most annoying WhatsApp messages I got this was in the beginning of this whole outbreak and it was
some guy who saw a dream two months before the corona outbreak and it was a virus itself speaking to him, I will and I will kill this many people and it sounds nice and eerie and everything. It's just nonsense made up by someone on the internet and is mentioning that I will kill everyone except the believers. Tibor ha fashola your
your prophecy failed already. It's killing believers. And have you ever in your life? Well, Yanni in our life, heard of something that just comes to two Muslims and leaves? Or comes to non Muslims and leaves? Muslims? Have you ever heard of anything like that? And how would that germ work? Exactly? How would that germ recognize a Muslim honey, just
Galicia Gallo effect, the believers will never be affected by me. So that means look at how if you're responsible, you don't write something like this. Because what if someone has a righteous father who died from the virus? Then he read your message and believes it? Oh, that means my father was a hypocrite. He wasn't a righteous man.
I thought I mean, all right.
Oh, yeah. Okay, let's.
Let's see here. Yeah, let's go to the next point here. And it says guidelines for studying the signs of the hour. So the first board was how to deal with the signs of the hour. This is guidelines. These are guidelines for studying the signs of the error number one. Number one, understand that some signs are detailed and others are vague, and it's not an accident. Purposely some signs are detailed, and some are vague. So that's how I intended them. That's how Nabi sallallahu wasallam intended them. So number one, do not try to fill in the blanks.
Don't try to fill in the blanks. This guy starts filling in the blanks, explaining what the beast is when we shot. That's not your job. Allah subhanaw taala purposely kept it vague and kept the rest of the information with himself. subhanaw taala. And now you try to come in. Let me let me stumble stumble
is like Oh, let me do some of this in front of you deduce
that one? Okay, so your job is not to fill in the blanks. And sometimes Allah subhanaw taala doesn't give you the details. So you don't metal. You don't metal. Remember what I told you. Imagine we knew where your jujin juge were trapped? Imagine we knew the exact location? Let's let's keep it real. What do you think what happened? I mean, right now, if we knew exactly where the dam or the said the blockade for you, dude was if you knew it right now, what do you think would happen?
We would not leave them alone. True or false? We wouldn't leave even if the Muslim said toquilla leave them alone. Oh, the Westerners would not want to leave them alone. You know, one they want to get let's go get the you know, get the get.
Let's go give these people freedom and bring them democracy and show them our world. Okay, that's one of America's first ones be like, oh, there's their oil there. Because I'm gonna kill all the Yo, if there's
Okay, I'm partially kidding. But you don't come on. You know, that's the truth. People would try to meddle. And then you go in there and you open that thing. You open that that barrier and guess what happens? They're not going to be like oh,
Thank you for freeing us. That's why do you don't want to get into them too much. But why did they come out so angry? Because you're the ones who trapped us here for 1000s of years. That's why they come out steaming mad. Want to free them and show them iPhones? No show you iPhones. All right?
Don't metal, people will metal.
And so that's why certain things were kept vague. Imagine we knew the exact location where the beast will be.
Immediately What do you think will happen? Some genius will come with a shovel. You'll pull a beast. All right. All right, let's get to the second point here.
Number two, gather. He says gather all the narrations together to get the full picture. Gather all the narrations together, and you'll get the complete picture. The judge There are numerous ahaadeeth on the job. He put them all together you get a complete picture of when he emerges what he looks like his physical description, his height, his built his hair, what his hair looks like, where he goes out in the beginning who follows him all that stuff, but it only there's no one nation that has all that you put them all together. It's very important. When you just look at one narration without the others you don't get a complete picture. If I just looked at one narration describing the malady
Okay, imagine that's all I look at. Oh, let's say I just know that his name is Mohammed Abdullah. That's the only narration I looked at. I find any guy called Mohammed Abdullah based on his mid, but whatever. I'll put all the narrations together, then I can tell I remember two weeks ago, I told you the story of this fake man that I met, right.
But the point is, is that he's saying that he's the Maddie. And I'm saying I'm gonna, I'm going to like put you against all the ahaadeeth if they match you are pledged to you. But if they don't match you, you're not the Maddie and you also stop saying are the Maddie. For one thing.
And there is a large fella mentioned that
you slit hula hoop Elena, Allah rectifies him overnight. So some scholars said that means a loss of how to Allah forgives all his sins overnight. Yeah, in one night, next morning is a different person. Other said he's not a religious person, very, you know, praying or anything like that. So overnight, he becomes the most righteous one on Earth. Now, if you're studying in a Quran halaqa for the last three years, and there's a very nice guy next to you. And one day he leans over to says Bye bye, by the way,
on the mat, do you need to pledge to me? So I've seen nothing but righteousness from this person. And he says I need to pledge to him. You've already you're disqualified because the Maddie is rectified overnight. That's one, you're disqualified again, because the Maddie does never ever, he never asked for the beta. He is forced upon it. And he's not forced upon it in Sarasota, Florida. He's forced upon it. In the Kaaba. Okay, between the Brooklyn macam. So he's there in that place. Not here, the guy in Florida asked me to give. So that's why you have to put all the narrations together, you get a complete picture of the sign. For those that have full details. Those are vague,
like we said, let's go to the next point.
With on our high tech led board here, it says interpretations of authentic narrations can differ. And even some of the companions sometimes differed on how do I explain this. And one thing, if you remember from two weeks ago, we said there can be multiple plausible explanations for Hadoop. And this is not just today, but even back then there were multiple explanations, all of them very reasonable and could make sense. And here's where the red flag comes up. If you're listening to a lecture, and it doesn't matter who it is to speak, or how big the beard is, or how well spoken, if they start to pinpoint with accuracy, dates, times, and locations, that's a red flag. And that's
when to stop listening to that person.
That's it. It's the unseen, no one's going to tell you in exact detail. And anyone who excludes all the other plausible explanations is not just this one. That's a big red flag. A big red flag. Some of you know what I'm talking about, is a speaker in English language. He has a lot of theories and speaks a lot on the sun before the day of judgment, the history knowledge a plus knowledge of politics, a plus knowledge of the Hadith and their explanations f f. So what happens when you mix you know good speech with some false hood. It becomes Mashie. That's what it becomes Costa and marshy. Exactly, that's exactly what happens. It becomes Clifton becomes mushy and
That's exactly what happens. So that's why many intelligent people will be like, Oh, did you listen to the show? He says some amazing things. Okay, maybe in history, maybe in politics, but and nothing was amazing. And what he said was nonsensical. It was garbage. It didn't make any sense.
We'll come back to them. All right, next point. For the most part, you take the signs literally, when the sun will rise from the west, the sun will rise from the west, a beast will come out of the earth, guess what? a beast will come out of the earth. And nobody speaks like this and say, oh, they're a beast will come out of the earth. Oh, by beast, he means the sins of people want to have the sins of people have been called beasts. Makes no sense. So language is literal. Like I said two weeks ago language is literal. Okay, if I say turn off that light, I mean, turn off the light. I don't mean, stop reading the Quran? Because the Quran is No.
Who speaks like that?
number five, you are not to make rulings out of the signs before the day of judgment. All right. So we know that there is a melody coming. So we go looking for the mid or we go a point mid, you know, we've had it nine people sitting there unemployed. It's a rough time. So there's, you know what, I've had it with this, we've had it with all this injustice on Earth, let's bring the mat. Let's either go find him. Or let's go and just appoint someone as the MADI Hubby, you can make a ruling out of any of these signs before the day of judgment. But it's very similar to the next point, which says, the signs before the day of judgment, if something is a sign is not necessarily evil, or Haram
is not necessary. I told you this before Also, sometimes we're recapping sermons, we're adding new points where someone came. And he said that
why these Arabs still building skyscrapers? Don't they know this is one of the signs before the day of judgment. So one thing is that one explanation or one misunderstanding is that by building these tall skyscrapers, they're disobeying the law because this is one of the signs before the day of judgment. The other misunderstanding is that by building skyscrapers, they are bringing the Day of Judgment closer. Don't worry about that. No one will ever do anything on this earth that will bring the Day of Judgment closer, except if it's an act that Allah decreed is one of those that but no one is going to make it a few days earlier or a few 100 years earlier. No one's going to change it
appointed time. It's appointed time as with Allah subhanaw taala.
Let's read this quote from mmm No, we Rahim Allah. I don't know if I read this or not. I don't think so. Yeah. Remember? No. He said this is concerning that six point not everything is evil or hot up. He said, not all that he sallallahu Sallam mentioned from the signs of the hour is prohibited or disparaged. disparaged, because the the competition between shepherds in constructing tall buildings and the wealth increasing because the competition and the shepherds are building tall buildings. It's one of the signs before the day of judgment. And wealth increasing is one of the minor signs before the day of judgment. And the fact that a woman will have one time those who are in charge of
their affairs will take care of them. 50 men will have one, he said is without a doubt not how long. He said it's not how long rather these are mere signs and signs are not necessarily confirmed to that meaning to the heroine and to the heroine. Towards the end of times the problem said rarely will a believer see a dream except that it will come true is that bad? Is that evil is that Hara. So not everything from the minor signs is about halal and haram.
All right. And then we get to the last point on our board, that the fact that something is from the signs of the hour is not a reason to create or initiate it and I kind of mentioned that that
too, that the math is a sign is not a reason to look for the malady or to look for the beast or to do anything to cause it to come sooner. Everything has an appointed time with Allah subhanahu wa Tada.
From this point on, we move on to our next slide.
Just waiting for my assistant to hit the button on the led the high tech LED screen that looks just like my handwriting. A lot mushy. Tanya Iowa. The screen also speaks Arabic. Eva shukran
There we go. Thank you very much.
now my screen is just what's the word
It's just refreshing the screen is refreshing. And then once the camera flips here, we'll, we'll continue.
The point that I mentioned here is very well done. It says it's the unseen. Okay? So understand that you're dealing with the unseen. And I mentioned this point.
Under another one earlier, we said that the fact that it's the unseen, you will not know exact timings, you will not know exact locations. And if you did, it wouldn't be from the unseen. That's like the most important thing. And I always wonder sometimes and that going back to that lecture again, he's speaking as if you breathe, Elisa Lam comes to him every night and tells him in perfect detail, like the fact that you're speaking about the unseen with such certainty, don't you for a minute, stop and tell yourself, how do I know this? So Well, if it's the unseen, you're not even behaving like it's unseen, you behaving like it's seen. That's not possible.
I told you about this presentation.
This guy, he's got this. On the projector screen. He's got Google Maps open, it's on YouTube. It's an Arabic, it's one of the most insane presentations I've ever seen. So this guy, the whole video is just a screen projecting on the wall. And you just see his the shadow of his finger, and the map moves and he's just putting his fingers saying, okay, and just keep following this path right here. And then he is like, he's telling you the path that Dale Carnegie took 1000s of years ago. And he'll tell you in detail as if he or his grandfather was with little club name as they were and who told you then they went through they made a right turn here made a left there, they stopped for tea over
here the shadow Fuck, man. How do you know all this stuff and he's just going through it. No one in the audience is questioning him. And then the map keeps moving on his fingers showing on the screen until he gets to this area. And he points to it. It says that is exactly where you judge and judge.
You're going to say this casually. Just so casually gonna tell me Julian my junior here mascara.
You know it. And that's it. I shall lotic
or this video of this expedition, these people. I can't remember whose Turkmenistan Tajikistan are. But they're driving in the mountains and the cameras are just showing them driving for a long time. And then you see them stop somewhere and they just stomp their foot like stamp your foot like this. And we're it we're standing over your illusion dude. Best killer.
Or those who try to find that the judge oh my goodness type. Let's get to that one. The next point is that there can be many plausible explanations.
The End not only can there be many plausible explanations, there can be more than one manifestation of assignment for the Day of Judgment. And maybe some of us lm said towards the end of time yuck through fi comm alma yocto Elma wealth will increase will be abundant amongst you. So some scholars now look at this and tell me if any one of these three explanations doesn't make sense. They said the three yeah three explanations number one, some scholars said during the reign of Roma
some the wealth increased so much You know, when you don't have that much money, excuse me.
That was not a dry cough by the way. It was not a dry cough.
During the wealth of the time of Rama Delano the wealth increased so much that the tarika when the what they leave behind of gold silver had to be broken with an axe. Whereas you know, someone's poor you just okay, that's for you. That's little pieces for you. But they had to break their whatever they left for inheritance with an axe. So we did see wealth increased a lot during the reign of Omaha top. So some scholars said yuck for fecal malmark. Here go It was manifested in happened it took place during the reign of Rama
makes sense or not. It makes sense. It already happened. Another group said, this will be after the match it comes because a Navy SEAL Silliman says he will fill the earth with justice and wealth, distribute wealth. So Can that be plausible? And it's absolutely plausible that wealth will increase when it comes. No objections here. It's from the Hadith is straight, and it's a manifestation or it's an explanation of this sign happening. And then the third group said, this is after the return of a sub memoriam. When Jesus returns, there will be so much wealth and blessing and Baraka, you won't barely even be in need of wealth. So is that plausible? All three were plausible. There are
many plausible explanations. There can be more than one plausible interpretation of a sign and
The sign can take place sometimes more than once, which we're going to return to that rule. Okay, we've been going on for a while having.
The next point
is that you have to keep the chronology the order of credit, the chronological order stay in order.
As I said before, the first three signs before the day of judgment, there is no dispute about them in their order. So one of the minor signs the Maddie during his lifetime, the first major sign that the judge during and who kills the the judge, the second major sign of pneumonia, and then right after a 70 million kills that the judge added says verbena Mohan ketonic as they're in that situation, he just killed it. The john, someone warns that the Judean majority have broken up these three in order. There is an if that same speaker again, he has he mentioned that your Judean majority have come out years ago, years ago. But what about the other two that happened before? You
have to follow the order? Or you told me that the judge is gonna come in any minute or someone saw that the judge in the dream that he's he's he will be out in five weeks? Or nine months. Clifford Whoa, now nine months. But what am I ready? Where's the hill? Where's the melody? Where's the freaking beta? Where's all this stuff? So you have to keep the order can just jump around. Next point
says be where the garbage? Yeah, Salam Yes, Allah.
So much garbage out there. And let me tell you, so much garbage. So much garbage out there
that I mentioned that there's so much garbage out there. Let's look at the next time. And I'll go to the next slide to explain the garbage. Don't deny a sign because you can't comprehend it. Do not deny a sign just because you don't understand.
Here's an example of that rule. And garbage at the same time. There is a speaker
lolly there's a speaker on YouTube, okay. And don't try to guess because it's an Arabic speaker, who sells himself as the science and you know, very rational, very scientific based speaker. And he says, some of the most ridiculous is not even a young man's an old man. And he always has a picture of him like you know, looking look smart and stuff like that.
And he always speaks in a way that is that says you are just fools. Listen to me. Like, you know, when when someone does that face that says, just listen to what I'm saying. You guys are fools. You're ignorant. That's, that's the look he has on his face the whole time. I'm not saying that's what he means because I know the intention. People are gonna jump in, or whatever you don't know his intention, had no one said intention, saying that's the look, it looks like it could be he meant something different. But that's what it looks like. So
How can I be alive this entire time?
Because if he is he if he was alive since the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and we have an authentic hadith mentioning that. Then the then time would have taken its toll on his body. That's he is I'm not making this up. He says there is no such thing as a dead dog. Yeah, and we've got so many Hadid but you can dismiss them like this with a smirk on your face less here his logical OR realistically, intellectually bankrupt arguments. Number one, he said he's been alive for 1000s of years when he comes out he's gonna be an old man. cataracts, hunchback shaking.
Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala stokfella. Young, he didn't think of this part of the plan that the time is gonna affect him.
That's one. Number two. He said we've scoured the earth. And whenever is Google Earth, he said you can look at every spot on Earth. There's no the job.
So you're telling me a loss of how to Allah decides and decrees that he is going to hide something from humanity until an appointed time
and you expect to just google map it and find lightning just zoom in and find him chained looking up at the or his look, frowning at the Google van meta funny.
ridiculous. He is wrong that we have explored the entire earth we have not even come close to exploring the earth. If you don't believe me, Google unexplored parts of the earth. That's number one. Number two.
Number two, we said that he's saying that the jail time would have taken its toll on him. He'll be an old man who would have died by now as if Allah Allah didn't plan for this. Then the scholars responded to that along to
time ago, they said that there are other examples of people whom time did not take a toll on their bodies. Here's one of the famous examples that we read every Friday inserted calf, the young men in the cave, they slept for how long? for 309 years. But when they woke up, they looked exactly like they did 309 years ago. What's the proof?
When they woke up, the first thing they said is come live with now. They said, How long were we sleeping? And one of them said Bitna, Yeoman. Oh, Baba young. We slept for a day, maybe part of a day.
Now, this is proof that they did not look any different. Their hair did not grow, their nails did not grow, they looked exactly the same. 309 years took no toll and had no effect on their bodies. That's proof because they thought they slept for half a day. But if time takes toll takes its toll on your body, first of all, they wouldn't wake up. Second, when they woke up, their nails would be 309 years long, their hair would be 309 years long, and their breath would be kicking. So they'd wake up, and he did move this mountain of hair and with all these nails and had asked the other guy Hey, how long have you been asleep? And the other guy says, I think half a day. Oh, really? your
nails grow like that, and half a day. Anyways, the point is, let me just stop. The point is there have been others that time has not taking a toll on their body and a lot is capable of that. To tell me that the judge doesn't exist because he'll be an old man. By the time he comes out or dead. And two, we can't find him. Yeah, la hate me. Anyways, here's the worst part. Going back to the point about garbage.
It's garbage. But if you look at the comments on YouTube, people are like mush. Well, lightning Zeki curry, he's a genius. Brilliant. I never thought of that. Thank you never thought of that means you don't think like
you don't think like
that. That's why
it doesn't make any sense. So the worst thing, then saying the garbage is being impressed by it. Yeah, this guy says his garbage. And you're impressed by it.
I don't have any example to give except, but someone gives you garbage. You go to a fancy restaurant, they put trash on your plate. When the waiter came to you with the plate he should have, he should have been able to tell that that's garbage is not food. Then when he put it in front of you, you took a whiff, and say who smells great? No, you should have realized this garbage. But then when he took the first byte, you should have especially realized that it's garbage.
But the guy finished the whole plate and follow the sun. Come on.
Kenny, not being able to recognize trash? doesn't make any sense. All right.
It's been an hour, I'd like you to look at this screen here. And I need you to understand to pay to pay attention. We've got two things, okay. In this next screen, and that's what we're going to pick up next Friday. inshallah, we have the minor and major signs before the day of judgment and the differences between minor and major signs before the day of judgment. All right. Now once we do that, I'm going to talk about a trio of trials, three trials that will come one after the other. And the first one might resemble Corona so so so much, but we're going to explore really and see is this talking about the Coronavirus? Is it talking even about our time period or not? And then I don't
know what to do. So this is where you come in. After that, should we rush through the minor signs and then go to the major the minor signs that might be something like 130, something authentic minor signs before the day of judgment, without repetition. And we could like run through five or 10, maybe quickly, every single every Friday, but remember, Ramadan is coming. So Ramadan will come before we even we even start the major signs, we could continue in Ramadan, I want to do what you would like me to do, because I could just start with the 10 major signs. And the the john will take a full class by himself a sub memoriam and your Judean majority will take a full class. And then
we'll have like seven or eight of them in one class because they get short after that. So we could finish the minors or the major signs, but would have completely skipped the miners anyways, you get the point. So the questions are, should we do the miner and then move on to the major? Should we skip all the minor signs and just do the 10 major signs before the day of judgment? You need to let us know like on the Facebook page in particular and on YouTube. If you're watching they're right in the comments what you think we should do?
I or someone else named come out. We'll
we'll respond to you
Fear is there any other questions or anything like that, but please do answer that so we can figure out what we're going to do next Friday inshallah. Now,
tomorrow, the Saturday class, I would like to tell everyone like make sure you watch and it will also be appropriate for those who are older not just the young kids, but the the older youth, because we're going to do something very, very important. And something that everybody every Muslim should know.
Should I tell it or not? Should I tell it here? Okay, no Harlesden. Tune in tomorrow at 12 o'clock in sha Allah, and you will find out solomo Barack Obama, thank you very much for joining us. We're salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
