Have you been humbled a little bit Alameen wa salatu salam ala MBA when was sullied by Maduro sort of lie some Amar Ali, while early he was as he was,
does live on Kofi Annan cathedra upon Babu, my brothers and sisters, you know, you know our next session of
life after death.
Let me pass briefly over some Hadith
relating to the signs of the last day because that is also very relevant and contextual in this case.
Our whatever the learner reported the famous Hadith of the 72 sets that Rasul Allah is our solemn
said the Jews have split into 7271 sects and my ummah will divide into 73.
out when Malik or there are who reported that Rasulullah saw themselves the Jews have split into 71 sets, one will enter Jannah and 70 will enter Johanna, the Christians split into 72 sects. 71 will enter Jahannam and one will enter Jannah and by him or whose hand is my soul, my ummah will split into 73 sets, one will enter Jannah and 72 will enter Johanna, and someone else, you also have a lot of us who will they be meaning who will be the sect of Muslims who will enter Jannah and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replies, the main body of Muslims which is the Jamar
and that's why none of the Hadees never said, stick to the Jamaat don't go and become part of some fly by night. You know, sect, which is away from the main body of Muslims, and other hobbies. Honestly, Malika Delano said, I shall tell you a hadith which I heard from Romani from Allah, Allah,
and which no one will tell you after me and he said, I heard him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say,
among the signs of the hour, which is the Day of Judgment, will be the disappearance of knowledge,
the appearance of ignorance, adultery will become prevalent, and drinking of wine will become common.
The number of men will decrease and the number of women will increase until there will be 50 women to be looked after by one man.
And this, this is
reported in the two sides in Macario Muslim.
So it always hurts and I'm saying that I'm only the science is that knowledge will disappear and ignorance will appear and adultery and the consumption of alcohol will increase.
May Allah protect us when we look, look at these we have to say that
perhaps these are the days that we are passing through. And the key thing here is not just to list the signs of the Day of Judgment, but to say, therefore, what must I do? If I'm in this situation, how much how much more important it is for me to keep myself protected and away from any kind of temptation of the law, the law said Surah sallam said
just before the hour there will be days in which knowledge will disappear and ignorance will appear and there will be much killings. So now he's talking also about wars and other forms of violence. In addition to ignorance,
increasing knowledge disappearing,
and the rest of it
and who they really
are their lawn who said that also Elijah Selim said Islam will become worn out like clothes are worn out until there will be no one who knows what fasting and salah and prayer and charity and the rituals of Islam are.
The Quran will disappear in one night and no Ira will be left on Earth. Some groups of all people will be left who will say we heard our father saying Lila hate Allah. So we repeated it.
And Scylla are the latter as well. They are the latter what we're saying Lila heilala do for them. When they do not know what prayer and fasting and charity and rituals are or they follow the law and ignored him and then see that repeated requests
has been three times. And each time they follow the alarm who ignored him finally he answered all Zilla, it will save them from Hannah. And he said it three times it will save them from Jana, it will save them from Johanna it will save them from the handle.
Now this isn't even a murder.
So this indicates that in the last days, knowledge will be taken from the people and even the Quran will disappear from the most of and from people's hearts. And people will be left without knowledge. Only the old people will tell them that they used to hear people saying Lila Illallah and they will repeat it and feel close to Allah subhanaw taala. So it will give them some it will give them some blessings. Even if they do not have any good deeds or beneficial knowledge, knowledge will be taken away from people and ignorance will increase during the last days. And the ignorance and misguidance will increase until the end, as in the hadith of a sorcerer Salah who said the Hour will not come
upon anyone who says Allah Allah, it will only come upon the most evil of men. Now very important to understand here
that this does not show this if somebody takes the view from here that we've only Lila saying, which is often why do we need knowledge at all?
You know, it's knowledge disappears, but people are still going into Jannah then
what was the good of knowledge?
We are talking here about a situation of desperation. Where it's a situation where these people who are saying is Lila Allah, Allah, they have no access to knowledge, right? Because knowledge had gone I mean generations before people are forgotten. And
knowledge is not there anymore. The way in which knowledge is lifted. In other words, Mr sallam said the way in which knowledge is different from the earth, is not that the pages of books become black, but that when a scholar dies, there is no one to replace him.
Right, when a scholar died, there's no one to replace him, there's no second scholar of the same level
to replace him. And so we're gonna be seeing machines all the time. I'm not talking about just in just about, you know, devotion to a particular person and individual color and say, oh, what you know, and so on Sundays, there will be nobody to replace him and this person is unique. There are people can say this out of out of love for somebody, that's not a factual statement, I'm talking about actually factual statement, somebody is scholar dies, then there is actually no other person to replace that scholar. Now, it's very important, therefore, what but this is not inevitable. This is what is happening. This is what we have seen. It's not inevitable. What is important, therefore,
is for people to dedicate themselves to learning and to teaching. And to create systems were systems of creating inheritors systems of creating successors, who are worthy successors who are even better than the ones that they
replace. And this is so critically important, because without this,
as I as I mentioned, this is what will happen, which is that it's a zero sum game. So each generation
is less than the previous generation until you come to a zero. And as I said, this is not inevitable. It is something which happens because people don't pay attention to developing
successes, they don't pay attention to becoming successes, there are two aspects to this and both are equally important. One is that scholars must be concerned about developing successes. So they will be concerned about creating systems building
schools, mentorship programs, and so on. This is not a general thing. You can't have a big university, which is, you know, spewing out scholars like,
you know, like big beans or something. It's not a it's not an assembly line process.
By definition, this is a
very personalized one on one
coaching developing mentoring process, takes a lot of time takes a lot of energy. It's a lifetime's work for somebody to create a worthy successor. It's not a it's not a simple thing. And in my opinion, it's, you know, no person can create more than maybe one or two
worthy successors in their whole lifetime. So that's one where I get this is just
The number I'm telling you and you might find people who did more than 100 law are part of it.
But usually speaking, this is not it is very, very difficult it takes it just takes too much of time, energy dedication, and so on the part of the teacher.
The The second aspect of it, which is
equally if not more important, and which is the catalyst to draw out.
It is the catalyst to,
to draw out the best from the teachers. And that is the students, a worthy student, or what is told is the one who has even more dedication to taking knowledge
than the teacher might have to get knowledge doesn't mean the details, lessons assurance, that is never the case. But I'm saying here, that the student by his or her behavior,
by their class, by their manners, by their concern by their khidmat, by their by their serving of the teachers,
in every single in every way, by their demonstration of their seriousness with respect to learning, by their demonstration of their seriousness with respect to their own correction and their own task, Ian tarbiyah, they draw out the best in the teacher, the door the best from the teacher. Now, this is a very, very critical thing.
Because without that, the teacher will simply not have enough energy
to teach a reluctant student, there is no such thing as a reluctant students who will achieve anything you can have, you can be an electron store student, I mean, nobody forced you to do something, do it. You will learn something by by by default, but you will never Excel you will never be remarkable in any way. But the remarkable student is the one who literally pushes the teacher in the best way doesn't mean that you actually go and
make the teacher's life difficult, but it means that you know, every time anytime the teacher wants to say something, do something the student is there. The teacher doesn't have to go hunting for the student. Right? There's no absent. Take somebody somebody like him, the ambassador Landau, for example, one of the beautiful I had these
detonated, he said that I saw soil as I was waking up for the hazards. So I ran to get him water for wudu.
He made Waldo, and then he placed his blessed hand on my chest. And he said, Oh Allah, give him the understanding of your books.
Right? Nothing is beautiful. The beautiful story the first and foremost we are brothers that endeavors was the
he was the cousin of this was a son, but he was very young. So he was about maybe 10 years old or something as this 10 year old boy. So he used to be in the house and
he was you probably see be in the same room. So now this 10 year old boy says that he saw us online for nothing. I'm getting apps arising for the hundreds. So what was this boy doing? Remember? He's not saying Rosa Rosa Walker for 30 years and then woke me up and told me to get water. No. He said I saw him waking up and I went to get the water.
What does it tell you here this day or what? He's so conscious of whose presence he is in? Because also those are Services Teacher pleasing, he is so conscious of the presence of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in his life that he doesn't even sleep.
Paget is what middle of the night right? So maybe two o'clock or something. One o'clock whatnot, a solar cell service satellite service getting up for the head, and this little boy is already awake.
And then what does he do? He anticipates the need of his teacher. The teacher doesn't ever tell him do this do that no, he anticipates the need he goes on run and he gets some water formula.
And what is the result of that? He gets the DUA offers a restaurant Salem by having the blessed hand of Nabi SallAllahu Sallam placed on his chest and as well as other services all like give him the understanding of your color.
And the medium was was Alana was the first Mufasa of the Quran the first explain or teacher accident of the class.
This is the meaning of teaching learning and when this goes away, then knowledge knowledge goes away. Then you get the zero sum game in each generation. Because you have reluctant students, your students are not really interested. They will come for whatever reason, you know, one of 10 reasons whatever it is, and they will get something I mean if you go
standing around, you get wet, but you know that that doesn't mean anything.
And the teacher himself or herself, will feel very hesitant, even to transfer.
And tell them about, you know, the the depths, the depths, and the,
what's the secret because a lot of Islam is open, there's no secret, but the depths of it, the understanding of it, and, and the and the subtleties of it.
Even the details of what you know, in, in, in teaching, in Islam, there are two principles, one is Tao and the other one is dialed in. Now, Dow is invading towards the last one. So that will give to anybody and you shouldn't give to anybody. Because everyone is worthy of being invited towards the last round. But Taleem, which is teaching, this is specific to those who have and will show a desire for it. Otherwise, it's scattering balls before slides. Giving knowledge or presenting knowledge to people who are not interested is a
is a disrespect of knowledge. So we don't do that we don't we do not try to present knowledge to those who are not interested. Because that would be disrespectful. Right? So it is something which is very important to ensure that we,
to the teachers will we make sure that they will not give knowledge to somebody who's not interested. And then of course, teachers are models one day the teacher dies, and that part of knowledge has gone with them.
Take the case of Rahim with him but how to learn is a famous story I've mentioned many, many times. And I won't mention the whole story in detail. But the very fact that here was a man who his chef, his teacher told him when he went to learn from him, he teacher told him to go and sit and stay in the stable of the horse. And even I was him ended up staying that stable of their horse for 12 years. Now, what does it tell you? What is it tell you about the kind of
focused dedication to self improvement, focus, dedication to learning that Brian was able to learn he had?
Right, it doesn't, doesn't need any explanation. Now, when you have students like that, then that knowledge gets transferred. But when you don't have to realize that it goes so therefore, as soon as salam says, in the last days, we will have this kind of situation, reluctant students we will not really interested in learning. And so therefore, knowledge disappears, it won't go to zero on one day, that one does vanish, but progressively less and less and less, progressively more and more superficial, in depth understanding will disappear. And you get to the stage where people will say well, you know, I don't know I say Lila
I heard my parents say that.
I'm amazed when I when I meet people for example, who have been to
people who have been to you know, whatever version of Sunday school or
part time weather solid they have attended children
who don't even know the basics, absolute fundamental base, so I don't even know what they're being taught and what they're learning.
Because for example, I saw some kid one day playing
in the parking lot of the budget and they should have been they should have prayed Maori with us when I came outside they're playing out so why don't you do did you not pray mother? They said no, we have not been invited to promote because I'm sweaty and I'm not clean.
Now sweat is not unclean. If you are sweaty doesn't mean you can pray you can pray you can use this may go to a new pray.
But how do they how will they know this?
Somebody has to tell them to say
so of course I told them and I got them to pray. But my point is that how is it that you have grown kids who are in their in their teens and they do not know that sweat is an is not unclean.
Sweat does not cancel or does not break a window.
It is as basic as that. I asked somebody to call the other and this is a grown
you know within God's kid in university
from a religious and practicing religious household
and he got he doesn't know how to call the other.
As you please call the other and he's saying it wrong
What do you do?
I won't tell you the ethnicity of the child, that will make it even more surprising.
Knowledge will not come with the breeze.
It doesn't come with the rain, you don't get knowledge because you go, you go out and get wet in the rain.
effort has to be made.
And from both sides you can have disinterested teachers
and you can have disinterested students, you need to have interested teachers and interested students. And both are both unnecessary, you cannot have the most interested teacher with disinterested students who will get no results.
And vice versa, you're gonna have the most interested student with a teacher not interested they will not get results. But between the two interested students can get a disinterested teacher interested. But I'm not seeing the opposite happening I have not seen an interesting teacher
you know able to do much with disinterested to assure you to some extent you can inspire others on but the need to learn has to be in the individual.
The best seed will not germinate in lousy soil, soil has to be good.
It will germinate but it won't do anything.
The best seed to give the best crop the soil must be ready.
So this thing is, you know my mind reminder to myself, I knew that let us show interest. Let us show interest let us be truly dedicated because unless we are truly dedicated, we will never be able to
get the benefit of knowledge. And at the end of the day, remember the chief beneficiary of knowledge zoo, yourself.
I'm the chief beneficiary of whatever I learn
Rasul Allah also mentioned some of the evils that will befall the Muslim ummah. During the last days, Abdullah Navarro, the Lama said. So Liza Selim came to us and said Omar had your own.
The people who made hijra from Qatar Marina UAV, afflicted by five things, may Allah
may Allah protect you? And he and may Allah forbid, the usual live to see this. So he says he's saying that this will happen, but I hope you will not be there to see the meaning I hope you will be protected.
He says number one, if fornication should become widespread, use you realize that this has never happened without new diseases, befalling the people with their forebears.
forebears never suffered
it fornication becomes widespread allowance and new diseases that previous generations never saw. Ask yourself, what is happening today in the world.
We do not we not only have one occasion spread, but we have fornication which is the norm and which is considered to be a person's fundamental right.
And then we are surprised
that literally every two weeks, we have a new box of this kind and that kind of we have a new pandemic.
And then we just said, if people should begin to cheat in weighing out goods and weighing out not only physical weighing out means in transactions, these people are cheating. You should realize that this has never happened without drought and famine befalling
the people and their rulers oppressing them. Derby Today we talk about global warming, and we talk about salmons these are phenomena This is how famine happens with global warming, but how is that happening?
Sure, there are physical reasons you know, carbon the
use of use of fossil fuels and carbon carbon dioxide emissions and so on and so forth. These are these are the, the core the the,
the means by which this happens. But the real cause is the home of Allah subhanaw taala agency ordered on us.
And that is because of people cheating in their transactions to two things one, drought and famine.
Rain disappears, temperatures increased and second oppressive rulers. So Hala.
today quite literally would take a map of the Muslim countries and throw darts
at any of the Muslim countries that that hits has an opposite ruler
And as soon as SLM says the third one, if people should withhold the cuts,
if they don't pay,
you should realize that this has never happened without rain being stopped from falling and worried not for the sake of animals, it will never end again.
Because people and whoever whose group is Muslims, you're talking here about Muslims.
In Muslim stopping zakat, Allah will stop there.
And then I said if people to break their covenants with Allah and His Messenger sunlight salary should realize that this has never happened without Allah subhanaw taala sending an enemy against them to take some of their possessions by force.
What is our covenant with Allah subhanaw taala and resources.
So first and most important, is Salah.
So if you stop praying,
Allah will send enemies against us,
who will enslave us and who will take away our property and who will attack our is
everything has an effect. This is a world of cause and effect. And we have to understand this.
And finally Rasulullah Salam said if the leaders do not govern, according to the book of Allah Subhanallah, who is governing according to the book
The biggest liars are the one was saying that their governing appointed
the biggest liars of the country's we say that they are being run according to the Sharia.
If the leaders do not govern, according to the book of Allah, you should realize that this has never happened without Allah making them into groups and making them fight one another.
We are sitting here and talking about the war in Ukraine.
What about the war?
Who's fighting whom in Yemen?
What about what is happening right now in Nigeria,
who is fighting whom in Nigeria?
Subhan Allah, and this is a Hadith in Nevada.
Let me quickly go over it again.
If fornication becomes widespread, new diseases will come.
If people cheat in transactions, it will result in drought and famine and oppressive rulers. If people withhold the cat, it will result in lack of rainfall.
If people break the covenant with Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu sallam,
when they said the first of that is Salah.
Allah would send an enemy against them,
to enslave them and take away their their wealth and property. And even enable leaders do not govern according to the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah will divide them into groups and the rules will fight one another.
As I said,
the purpose of all of this is to monitor ourselves and say, are we falling falling into any of these and to make sure that we don't fall and if we are in it, then to get a
final Hadees for today, or even with Saudi Arabia law? No, he said that also Allah is Allah Ali Salam said, If my Alma bears 50 interests, tribulation, between which means calamities will befall it. Someone asks what are the jasola Allah Allah and he said, When any gain is shared out only among the rich with no benefit to the poor. So Hala
min any gains is shared out only among the rich, with no benefit to the poor. When a trust becomes the means of making a profit, when paintings or cards becomes a burden.
When a man obeys his wife but disobeys his mother, and treats his friend kindly, while disregarding and shunning his father.
And this is vice versa, when voices are raised in the mosques in the Masai when the leader of a people is the worst of them, when people treat a man with respect, because because they fear some evil that he may do when much wine is drunk, when men wear silk, when female singers and musical instruments become popular
When the last ones of this ummah curse the first ones, that today people criticize the Imams, they criticize the Sahaba they criticize anybody.
Then as soon as the lead them expects a red wind on the earth to swallow them, or to be transformed into animals
so how long
until we see this isn't
me Allah subhanaw taala
help us and protect us.
where we fall into
these traps, we ask a lot smarter to save us and to help us to do that which is pleasing to Him
and to save us from that which does not please Him
and to help us to prepare for a day, which will come
