Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah Shafi them beaver mursaleen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi seldom at the Sleeman kathira mavado. My brothers and sisters, we are on the second of the lessons from the mBiA mussalam and today I want to talk to you about the life of satana new Haile salam,

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

geladeira, who mentioned some of the

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

ambia alayhis salam and he mentioned some of the some of his rules are also which is the global law school and he called them all as him Allah subhanaw taala call them These were the very steadfast I mean, all of the MBI was steadfast but there was particularly the people and elimination five of them.

00:00:53--> 00:01:15

Easily Salaam bossa nova is Salam is Ali Salam musala, salaam Ibrahim Ali salam, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So nolet salam is the first of the old as Amina Rasul as, this is called the steadfast the old rasm among the Rasul of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

Rasulullah Sara Sara mentioned some things about the Amir limoux Salam

00:01:22--> 00:02:13

rasulillah salam said that about sheath Alayhi Salam who was the son of Adam alayhis salam. He is not mentioned in the Quran, but in the sun and he told us about him. He was the son of Adam alayhis salam on whom 50 scrolls 50 sauf were revealed. Now, obviously, as you can see, the early days, Allah subhanaw taala was teaching in Alabama until there was a need for revelation to teach humankind what to do in their lives and how to live their lives and what to do. So they got these sorts of they got these calls. Of course, all of these are way in the earliest history of humankind. But the only reason we know about that is because Allah subhanaw taala told us, there is no written

00:02:13--> 00:02:23

record of this. So we don't know what was in those scrolls apart from of course, the fact that it would have been tawheed. And the worship of only Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:25--> 00:02:51

told us that there were a total of 104 revelations, out of which they were 100 sold off, and 400 scrolls and four books. The four books was the war on Tao la Salaam Taurat, on musala, salaam Injeel. On is Ali Salaam and the Quran, on Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is just sort of background

00:02:52--> 00:03:15

information for us to put these things in our in our mind. One other thing that I want to mention to you is the role of what is called the Israeli Earth. Now the the Jews had, they had the Torah before the Quran was revealed, which today, you know, the we have today with us,

00:03:17--> 00:03:28

Torah, ngl, and Quran. The Quran is the only one which we have, which which is completely preserved exactly as it was, from the time that we

00:03:29--> 00:03:35

that it was revealed. The Torah and ngl we have in in whatever form it exists today.

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

The Torah is in Hebrew, which was the original,

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

original

00:03:43--> 00:04:06

language in which it was revealed. But the Injeel was revealed originally in Aramaic, which was the language that easily Salam spoke, but that is lost. The earliest of the of that we have is in Greek, and that also what we actually have in terms of the New Testament, the Gospels and so on is not the actual revelation. But what some of the

00:04:08--> 00:04:29

some of the apostles, some of the followers of some of the Hari Sahaba have recently Salaam who recorded some things, there are a lot of lot of issues in that, including into the question of, you know, whether the the people who wrote them, for example, john and others, whether these were actually the

00:04:30--> 00:04:35

the Sahaba of Israeli Salah or not a lot of

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

there's a lot of conflicting information and conflicting opinions also about Paul, who today to all intents and purposes, he is the founder of Christianity. It's not so much easily Sam but Paul, who is the who's the who's the founder. And the interesting thing is that Paul never met Sally syrups. He was not even a Sahabi of his

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Salam he claimed to have seen Sorry, sir, I'm in a dream. And that's the thing about Paul. Anyway, that's beside the point here.

00:05:09--> 00:05:51

But the reason I mentioned that is because of the issue of Israeli at which is the stories of that we know from the Jewish scriptures. Our attitude as Muslims, as far as the stories from Jewish scriptures is concerned is that we don't say it is right we don't say it is wrong. We do not know the authenticity of it. But we do not also deny it. We don't say that these are false stories. We don't say these are, these are not true. But we don't know the authenticity of them, we do not, we cannot trace the, the the basis and reference of this. Therefore what how much to treat it, the way we treat that is that if we take, if we hear a story from the side yards from the scriptures, from

00:05:51--> 00:06:45

the books of the Jews, then if that story agrees with our understanding from the Quran, and the Hadith, if that story is in line with what sola salon told us, in that context, then we accept the story if the story is offline, if the story is telling us something that we do not have in the Quran, and the Sunnah, then we do not accept the story, for example, both in the side yard, both in the stories of the Jewish scriptures, as well as in the Bible, for example, Luther a Salam is falsely accused of having an incestuous relationship with his own daughters. Now, obviously, we reject this we denied, because as far as we are concerned that the MBR mussalam, the prophets of

00:06:45--> 00:07:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala, were people who have the highest character, and who Allah subhanho wa Taala presented to us in our last minute, Allah held up to us and standards by which he wants us to live. If these are the standards that have been the standard, be somebody who's committing Haram. So this is, unfortunately, this is what has happened with the earlier scriptures, both with the

00:07:10--> 00:08:00

Torah and the Injeel, that they were changed, they were things were introduced into them, by, by the scholars of that of those religions, who introduced their own conjecture, their own reflections, you know, if they didn't understand something, then they introduced and injected, whatever they wanted into that, I'm going to do a separate lecture on this issue of how and why but just to come close the loop here, our the difference between how we deal with what we do not within courts understand, in the harar, and how the Jews and Christians dealt with what they didn't understand is a very marked and a very important difference. As far as we are concerned, Muslims, there are some things

00:08:00--> 00:08:42

in the Quran that you cannot understand, because, and this is quite normal, the way I explained it is that if somebody were to, and this happens to me all the time, because I'm around a lot of technology, people, I love technology, I use technology a lot. But I am not I don't have a formal education in it or in, in technology. So when I'm with people of technology, when they are explaining some things to me, one of the problems of these geeks is that they talk to you, you know, like you are a geek, I mean, they just talk to you as if as if you understand and because usually they are talking to people to understand. So if you get into that, then they will talk to you like

00:08:42--> 00:09:13

you understand, but you don't understand. Now they are speaking English, so I know English, but it's the tech is the technology is the technical terminology as well as the technical concepts, which I don't understand. But what how do I read that? I don't say well, you know, I don't understand it. So it is false? No, of course not. I am saying I don't understand it. And I am humbled enough to accept that I don't understand it. Because I have not studied that branch of science. They have not studied that branch of knowledge. So even though the person that is speaking to me

00:09:14--> 00:09:24

is Ahmed or other or Omar Mohammed or one of these boys who are like my dear like my sons, quite literally with in terms of age, they could have been my sons.

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

mercifully, they were not so I'm very happy about that, but I'm just saying that they could have been my sons. Now, for those of you wondering why I said that because if they had been my sons, I would have had to pay their bills and I didn't have to pay any of their bills. And yet I have their love and I have the the I have their Mohammed in my heart and they love me, and they do all the stuff they do for me so I'm very I'm very fortunate Mashallah hamdulillah. But I'm just saying that when I'm talking to one of them, even though they are younger than I am, in terms of technology and technical knowledge, their knowledge is far superior to mine.

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

Now, so there was some time when they say something, all I do is I tell them look, please, I am Anjali these things. Okay, can you dumb it down? And tell me in words that I understand, I don't feel humiliated or anything like that I shall hungry, let me understand from them. And then there are some things where I say, look, I just take your word for it, right? I mean, I'm not going to go into the all the concepts of this, because by the time you are done with explaining the concepts, and I am done with understanding the concept, that technology would have changed, because technology changes very fast. So I tell them, the I take your word for it, they just tell me, how must I do

00:10:33--> 00:11:15

this? How must I use it? Just give me the steps using steps do this, do this, do this, and I am done, Angela. Now, this is effectively how we understand the concepts of the vibe and what we don't understand in the Quran. How do we approach that? We see al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen, we take your word for it. Just tell us what to do. samina, we're gonna, this is the beauty of the way in which we approach the Quran, those things that we do not understand. When I told you there are several things in the Quran that we don't understand, we probably will never understand. unless Allah subhanaw taala wishes us to understand, and we get this knowledge from Allah, we won't

00:11:15--> 00:11:55

understand. So it doesn't matter. Because Alhamdulillah we take a last word for it because we believe in Allah subhanaw taala. Now what, unfortunately, what the scholars of the Jews and the Christians did, and today, there are a lot of so called educated Muslims who also fall into the same trap. There is no I don't understand it. So I am going to try to understand it in the framework of knowledge which I have. The problem with that is that if you if the only transportation that you have ever used is a bullock cart, you will never understand how a 380 an Airbus 380 flies.

00:11:56--> 00:12:29

You've never seen the Airbus 380 you've never you have no clue about aerodynamics, you have no clue about about the principles of flight. You have no clue about how jet engines work, right? You have no clue about anything. And you are saying no, no, I am going to understand how an 8380 flies from the framework of how a bullock cart runs on the ground. Now I've got nothing is Bullock's Oregon's bullock carts, and you say that here is a low level technology, it also gets you from place to place no problem or that

00:12:30--> 00:13:12

it's a low level technology to understand using that low level technology or the knowledge related to that low level technology, trying to understand something which is far, far superior is impossible. If you try to do that you will end up taking the 380 and yoking it to a two not to two bullets, but maybe 20 bucks, and then dragging it on the ground and you say well, you know I understand it. Now you don't understand it at all, that you do not understand. So what must you do? what you must do is shut your mouth, buy a ticket, go right in a 380 enjoy yourself. That's it Hamas and hamdulillah now this is what we do as far as the Quran is concerned, which is we say yeah, we

00:13:12--> 00:13:19

take your word for this. If you said your arches on the water, we accept it or hamdulillah we don't try to

00:13:20--> 00:14:03

to conjecture eyes, we don't try to imagine we don't try to say well you know water means this and RS means that and on means this and over means this we don't do any of that. We say Allah subhanaw taala said this Alhamdulillah What shall I do about it? Nothing. There's nothing for me to do. It is allows us it is not mine. Alhamdulillah my job what I need to do is accept what Allah subhanaw taala told me and say Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, me, I'm done with that. This is how we approach but this is not how the Jews and the Christians did it. This is not how as I told you, so called educated Muslims tried to do it today, which is they try to interpret it. And so they ended up changing their

00:14:03--> 00:14:19

scripture. So they rewrote their scriptures. In many ways. There's no no this can't be like this. So we change it. This particular law you know, like it looks like too tough I can't do it. So I'm going to change that. Now. problem is that for example, I'm I'm an author, I'm a writer.

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

say I've written a book I wrote a book called leadership lessons from the life of a soul.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

Now, if somebody takes his book, and if they change it around, if they remove what I have returned, if they put in whatever they want, right, then it is no longer my book, right? Not only are they doing something which is which is illegal because they are they are violating copyright. They are taking my book and changing it. But apart from that, it is no longer my book. So if somebody says you know no leadership lessons from the life of socialism written by will say our big says this is sorry, excuse me. What is our big

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

wrote, set something else, this is what you have written. And this is what happened with the Bible and the Torah. And so people ended up with something which was a mixture. There are some things in the Bible which are still original, for example, the statement that is attributed to Jesus, he saw a Salah, where he said, your God is one, he said the Lord your God is one. Now, if Allah is one, and the Bible is saying that then you must you must ask those people and say, if he is one, then where did you get the Trinity from? Right, and that's a different story altogether. We won't go into that. Now, I'm just mentioning this in in the context of the earliest scriptures, and our approach to

00:15:46--> 00:16:14

them, and the Israeli art and our approach to them. And our approach as far as the suraiya is concerned, or anything from the earlier scriptures is concerned is that if whatever we read or is quoted to us, agrees with our concepts of Allah subhanho wa Taala and our concepts of the live and whatever it is, which is in the Quran and the Sunnah, we accept it, otherwise we do not accept it.

00:16:15--> 00:16:21

Now, let me say this Adam said that between other Malays Salaam and Noah Salaam there are 10, Korean,

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

who were Muslim now. And then

00:16:27--> 00:16:41

people started to creep into shirk, we'll come to that in a minute, but 10 karnan. And they say that one current is equal to one century and some people said it is equal to one generation, Allah knows best.

00:16:42--> 00:17:13

Then people started going into shock. Now how did that happen? How did people started it? People didn't suddenly, you know, one day decide All right, so until yesterday, I was praying to Allah subhanaw taala alone. Today, I think I'm going to pray to somebody else, or I'm going to add it did it didn't happen like that. The way it happened is quite logically as you might as you might think, which is that people had teachers, people are prophets, they loved them very much. They followed them and so on. And then when those prophets passed away, people tried to

00:17:14--> 00:17:56

praise them and they tried to elevate their standard, their status. So they praise them and they started praising them, and they raise them or they raise their status, meaning they didn't actually raise the status it means they're how they express their status went beyond what Allah subhanaw taala had given them. So I love this person so much. I love Isa Li Salam so much that I say that no, no, he cannot be an ordinary human being. This has to be the Son of God knows we laugh. I love Mohamed Salah Salaam so much that I cannot believe that he is an ordinary human being he has to be a part of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is known so Mohammed Salah Salaam is also known. He's a part

00:17:56--> 00:18:02

of that note and you are in you as the person then Then what about the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala revealed discord and

00:18:03--> 00:18:43

discord and he decided this Quran in the in Salah, where he said, Call Anna Anna Bashara, Miss lucam say to them that I am a human being like you, what must we do with this either? Because if he was no more, then he was saying say I am a human being like you this would be wrong. Are you accusing the prophets Allah Salaam of falsehood? Are you saying that he said something he didn't believe in? Are you saying that he said something that the Quran is saying something which is different from the actual truth, and that you know the truth and what the Quran is saying is something else is wrong, what are you trying to say, but this is what happens when which is called Hello which is called

00:18:44--> 00:19:35

which which is flattering, which is, you know, raising somebody is level beyond what is real in that, in that case, Justice is to give the level to give the view that is due to somebody not to do more not to do less. So it's very important for us to know that now, by this veneration of good people beyond what is permitted. Slowly people started changing and they started adding those good people into the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They started seeking help from those people instead of Allah subhanho wa Taala they started asking those people instead of asking Allah subhanaw taala and so on and so forth, and this is how shear came into being. And then Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

sent another levy and another levy. And this kept on happening until the last of them came and that is Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they all came with only one common purpose and that was to re establish the heat in the on the earth to reestablish the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone on the earth. This was the

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

sum total. This was the common purpose of all the available Salah. And as I mentioned to you in the last class of nolli, salaam, Allah subhanaw taala send the ambia last class of Ottoman Islam, Allah subhanaw taala send the ambia to be obeyed.

00:20:17--> 00:20:21

right we have it. This is why Allah subhanaw taala sent me. Now,

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

the story of Noah's Salam Alhamdulillah is a beautiful, beautiful story.

00:20:29--> 00:20:43

It's a story of amazing patience, amazing perseverance, amazing courage. It's a story of amazing confidence in the message. It's a story of

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

the complete and total you know,

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

the total unwillingness to give up in the in the in the face of unbelievable hardship.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

It's a story also about the help of Allah subhanaw taala, now known as the love story is a story of

00:21:05--> 00:21:17

the Nusrat of Allah subhanaw taala for the die, and the power of God. So this story is about perseverance. It's about the new sort of Alex with the help of Allah, it's about the power of

00:21:18--> 00:21:56

the story is also a story about the need for the die, to use every means of Dawa that is available to him, and to vary the means, because not everything appeals to everyone. Not every way and every method appeals to everyone. Different people are convinced and convinced in different ways, different people find different approaches appealing to them. And therefore for the purpose of from the perspective of data, we should be willing to vary our approach, depending on who we are talking to.

00:21:58--> 00:22:46

is also the story of varicella is the story about the issue of nisbets with Allah subhanaw taala the connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And in this book with people who do the work of Tao, it's also about how Allah subhanaw taala sees those who disobey Him, no matter who they are or who they are related to the way Allah subhanho wa Taala dealt with the son of Noah's Salah, this is a lesson for us. Allah subhanaw taala showed us this lesson, which is that it is not your physical relationship in this world which count before Allah, it is your armor, it is your deeds. So Allah subhanaw taala showed us what he did with the wife of Luther, his Salah with the son of New Orleans Salaam, with

00:22:46--> 00:22:58

the father of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and with the uncle of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam analyst rantala also showed us what he did with the wife of his wife of

00:22:59--> 00:23:33

a fit out. So Allah subhanaw taala is showing us here that it is not who you are related to which will make any difference. If your animal is not good. If you do not believe in Allah, if you deny Allah subhanho wa Taala if you do evil, then even if you are related to the best of the people, it will not help you, you will perish and you will go into the hellfire. Even if your husband or your wife or your father or your son or your

00:23:34--> 00:24:22

or your or your uncle or your nephew, even if they were the best of people and who is better than the NBA, but that even that relationship did not save those peoples and I think today of people who do not obey Allah subhanaw taala even in the basic five for example, take Salah people who do not pray and then if you tell them please Why don't you pray? It's a no no, no Salah is not for us I am related to so and so. I'm related to this in Allah when Allah Raja Babylon sisters, know Ali Salam story is also about tawakkol Allah subhanho wa Taala. And about, as I said earlier, perseverance of continuing to do the work of Dean, no matter if the whole world becomes your enemy.

00:24:23--> 00:24:55

Doesn't matter even if the whole world is your enemy, you continue to do the work of Dean and this is a story of talk of complete and total reliance on lots of data. Now, how long did Noah shambu this? Think about is Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the actual number in the Quran. Allah did not say did it for a long time, many years, no 1950 years. When Noah is salam, he obviously had a very long life. But the point is for 950 years, and as soon as I said that

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

only a few people, maybe less than 100 people

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

We'll accept it is Dallas with 950 years of work of our day and night and over just about 100 people accepted Is that right? Imagine what kind of art Melissa must have had. What amazing fortitude what amazing courage, what amazing strength. What amazing, you know note in his heart from Allah Subhana

00:25:23--> 00:25:39

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the story of Marie Salaam in the whole Sudan surah called surah no as we know in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said Allah rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Santa no Haneda comi

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

00:26:04--> 00:26:04

lo

00:26:07--> 00:26:32

Allah tada verily nollie Salam about him. Allah said Verily we said no alayhis salam to his people. This is the difference between all the Gambia and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in our salon when Allah called me and said no Ali salam to his people and lots of adolescent Salim Ali Salaam to his people I lost around tell us intelligent

00:26:34--> 00:27:23

muzzle is allowed to his people a lot rather send the umbrella masala all of them to his people. But Allah subhanaw taala central sola sola sallam, to the whole of humanity and he sent him to the whole of the world universe. Omar sanaka illa Rahmatullah Allah me, not Rama de Lille muslimeen, Allah didn't say, tender, as urara as a Bashara as a as mercy to Muslim. I have utterly add me to the whole, not just the word, but the words, whatever and however many they might be. And then as I said, we sent one is alive he said, Verily, We said no to his people saying, one your people before their comes to them a painful torment. These are people who are sending these are people who are

00:27:23--> 00:27:46

transgressing and oppressing Allah is a good one that, that if they don't give up all this, and if they do not worship Allah subhanaw taala, they are going to be caught in a punishment. And he said nobody Salam said, Oh my people, verily I am a plain warner to you, that you should worship Allah subhanaw taala alone, you should have a stopwatch, you should do be dutiful to him, and you should obey me.

00:27:47--> 00:28:02

Allah subhanaw taala said he, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive your sins and give you time, until an appointed term. Verily, the term of Allah when it comes, cannot be delayed, if you bought new.

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

Now, if you see this,

00:28:07--> 00:28:27

this set of ad, this is the essence of it. This is the sum total, and this is the common message that every NaVi bought, they all said the same thing. They all said, they told people to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, right.

00:28:29--> 00:29:15

And he was the law and it would allow her what Taku to obey, worship Allah subhanaw taala have is the quad and obey me meaning obey the NaVi of the time. This is the common message that came to all people of all times. And I think it's very important for us to keep this in mind and to understand this. And then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned an overly solemn story. He continued with that. And he mentioned how what no, Elisa Lam said, Well, this is the way of the Amira brothers sisters, was that in the daytime, they would go and they would invite people and so on. And for some part of the night they would stand in Salah, and they would make dua and they would tell us about Allah their story

00:29:15--> 00:29:33

and they would ask for less help. And that is why in Dawa these two things are very important to give the hour in the day and to stand before Allah subhanaw taala in the night and to seek His forgiveness. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this about nollie Salah Allah sakalava been neither out okay, call me lelo and

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

follow me as

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

Han Solo to the homie so

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

Allah subhanaw taala said

00:30:07--> 00:30:46

that no Ali salam, he said, Oh my Rob, verily I have called my people night and day, but all my calling added nothing but to their flight from the truth. And verily, every time I called unto them, that you might forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, and they covered themselves up with their garments. And they persisted in their refusal, and magnified themselves in pride. And then verily, I called them openly and I call to them in public, and I have appeal to them in private. Now, no one is salami showing, and telling us

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

about the his data and he's telling us about how he,

00:30:53--> 00:31:34

he called to the people. Now he's saying I called them in the morning in the night, I call to them by in public meaning, you know, giving a speech kind of thing. Individually, I met them and I spoke to them. You know, there is a beautiful story of a soldier so Solomon is Tao as well again the same way where a soldier a solemn, one day it was bitterly cold, it was raining heavily. It was pitch dark in the night when Abu Jamal heard a knock on his door. How would you have thought Who on earth is this at this time? In this kind of weather? Who has come to see me in the middle of the night? He went, he opened the door? Who does he find his divine masala salami, sir, what are you doing here?

00:31:35--> 00:31:42

At this time? Look at this, whether it's your word, this is so cold and it's it's pitch dark? What am I doing it?

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

So those are some said to him.

00:31:47--> 00:32:25

A lot of you accept Allah subhanho wa Taala say there is no one worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala accept me as the Messenger of Allah and become successful, I will answer what is wrong with you. Indeed, you know, you have told me this 1000 times again, you are coming. Now at this time, there was a little upset. I thought maybe let me try now with all this weather and so on and so forth. Maybe your heart has suffered, maybe you will accept the message. Imagine what is this? Somebody said somebody has written that Russell Russell Russell went to jail more than 100 times. Can you imagine this more than 100 and being rejected and rejected and rejected.

00:32:26--> 00:33:00

being rejected is a very horrible thing. But you know, it's for for normal, ordinary people. It destroys your confidence. You want to be accepted, you want to be appreciated. And if you are constantly rejected, you don't want to go again and again, back to the same people. It's truly it is the heart of the hearts of the Ambien, a mussalam, that Allah subhanaw taala supported, where they never lost confidence. They never lost confidence because their site was on something else. They were not going to the people for their appreciation. They were going to the people for the appreciation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They knew that Allah likes that. So they went to the

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

people. The people rejected them. They didn't they didn't care. The doodle was three again from the Sierra, that the writer of the story he says that we saw in the in the days of the Yamato ship after Hajj. There was this man who was going from tent to tent in Minot. Right, bitterly extremely, extremely hot. The whole day. He goes from 10 to 10. And he said we saw him being repulsed and being sent away and repelled from every tent, every tent, he went, he was rejected. He was they didn't they did not listen to him, and they shut their doors to him. And then he said, middle of the day, when at the peak, very, very hot. He came in, he sat outside his tent, in the shade of a rock. He

00:33:51--> 00:34:33

says his daughter came out with some water for him to drink and she weighed a cloth in the water. And she wiped his face and so on. There were tears in her eyes and she says oh my father, what have they done to you? What have they done to you? And he said, My daughter, do not have do not lose faith. He said Don't feel sad that as and he said do not feel feel sad. A day will come when this message of your of your father's this message of Allah subhanaw taala will enter every house on the face of the earth, whether it's a permanent dwelling, or whether it's a temporary dwelling, and this man was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

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

sisters, imagine what kind of a heart is that? What kind of fortitude is that? What kind of strength is that? That he's able to say this, that he's able to say that don't worry, this is not going to end Alhamdulillah inshallah Stan, I am going to continue and I am going to persist and they will be a day when Allah will cause this message to go into and to go to

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

Every person on the face of the earth, and he said that they there will be some who will be, who will be honored because of it. And there will be some who would be humiliated because of it. And those who will be honored will be those who accept it. And those who will be humiliated will be those who rejected. Now, my brothers sisters, this is the issue of Islam, this is the issue of Dawa and so on, we are now looking at the life of,

00:35:30--> 00:36:11

of louella Salah, let us think about this and say that what is the lesson that we take away from this, as I told you after every lesson, we we must think about this and say, what is it that I will start doing? What is it that I'm going to stop doing? And what is it that I will continue to do? So in the story of Noah's Salaam? What is it that we learn? The first lesson we learn is the lesson of complete and total faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala, without any doubt, without any deviation whatsoever, because that is the fundamental that is the fountain, that is the foundation from which everything else begins. If this faith is weak, then the dollar can never be strong. I can never

00:36:11--> 00:36:56

invite you towards something that I myself do not believe in completely and totally without doubt is not possible, right? I cannot I cannot invite you when I myself have doubts about it. So it's very important for me and you to be totally and fully convinced about Islam. So study Islam, learn Islam, so that you are completely gay, any doubts and so on. You have go and get them clarified, and believe with complete and total certainty. You know, whenever I think about this, I think to myself, anytime you have a doubt, ask yourself this question and say, am I more intelligent than Mohamed Salah? Am I more intelligent than people like Abu Bakar and Omar was born in it and sad when when

00:36:56--> 00:37:15

because, and sad be more than observer in the house? And Marvin jabber robiola? one image? Why am I more intelligent than a digital camera? Am I more intelligent than Ayesha Siddiqa? Am I more intelligent than my Muna? Am I more intelligent than the men and Fatima? Zahra? radi Allahu

00:37:16--> 00:37:35

Allah azza wa jal Why am I more intelligent than the great scholars of this Deen? Am I more intelligent than people like Bahasa Li, am I more intelligent than Abu hanifa? Am I more intelligent than Shafi? Am I more intelligent than then Malik bananas? Am I more intelligent than being humble?

00:37:37--> 00:38:15

The question I want to ask myself is am I more intelligent all these people so if they didn't doubt then why must I doubt very simple. So by all means, clarify your doubts if you have any doubt which you can't find anyone to clarify them then have take comfort in the fact that people are far more intelligent than you believed it so therefore inshallah it is true. ask Allah subhanaw taala gelato to give us a firm foundation in Islam and to enable us to live this Deen in a way that is a that is a Dao in itself. So from the story of what is haram, we learn absolute

00:38:16--> 00:38:43

faith. one. Number two, we learn persistence. We learn perseverance, we learn enormous courage. We learn total focus on the target on the goal without getting distracted by whatever is happening around us. We learn focus on the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala alone and not worrying about who else likes me doesn't like me approves of me doesn't approve of me. We learn we learn

00:38:45--> 00:39:25

to take strength and courage from my connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us learn that and then in the start, stop, continue. Ask yourself what is it that I don't do currently which I need to start? What is it that I'm doing currently that I must stop? And what is it that I am doing currently, which I must continue to do in the story of what is and I'm one of the biggest learnings is the power of of salah and dua, which is the 100 which is our first of all, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you and never to be displeased and to make these series of lectures a means of care for you and me both masala Alana bill Carnevale, erotica.
