rather human hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam. Ala feelin ba will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam does leave on cathedra and Kathira for Mavado. My brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala we are on the story of solidarity Sarah, and as you know, Allah subhanaw taala geladeira, who told us these beautiful stories, for one reason only, and that is so that we can learn and learn important lessons and practice them in our lives.
So we are at this point of a story where Mr. Ali Salam was informed about these people from the kingdom of Sabah, which was in, in Yemen. And it had, it was a very big kingdom, it went from there all the way into Ethiopia, Kenya, and parts of what is today, Saudi Arabia, all of these were under this kingdom and the kingdom was ruled by a queen. And from the Hadith, the Quran does not give a name, but from the IDS we know, her name was Bill keys. And this queen was a wise woman. They were they were they were sun worshipers, those people.
And the hollowed the hobo game and informs Ravalli salaam about these people. Somebody said and then sent them a letter inviting them to the submission of Allah subhanaw taala, inviting them to Islam, and telling them to stop worshipping creatures and to worship the Creator.
The sun and the moon are creatures, the creator of Allah subhanho wa taala. Neither the sun or the moon or anything else is worthy of worship. The only one worthy of worship is Allah subhanho wa Taala jealous, because
he is the creator of everything.
Now will his
as I said, she we know that she was the wise woman. So first she the first thing she did was that she made mashallah she consulted with her,
with the Chiefs with the with the military chiefs with the civil chiefs and so on. And she said to them that look, here is the situation where we are being invited to Islam by this
king and this Nabil. And
he says that,
and if we if we if we do not accept, then there may be war. And she said that, you know, if there is a war, then wars are always
problematic things. Because in a war
the people who have is the honorable people are dishonored.
People are, there's loot and this and that. And cinnabar is Allah was well known because he's well known for his strength and his power, because he had armies and he said, You I will come with an army which you cannot resist, which is of course the army of genes and so on which they could not even see it was obviously you how can you find somebody who can't see.
Now he people also were brave people, the honorable people, so they said, We understand all of this. But if you want to fight, we are ready to fight and whatever be the consequences. Now she being a wise woman, she decided and she realized that
confrontation is always the more difficult, the more expensive option. And
peace is obviously always the best option, because it is softer, and it is less disruptive. And through her wisdom, therefore, she decided to go for peace for negotiations. And this is her wisdom, which also led her to Islam. Now, this does not mean of course, that we should always take the easy route as far as any confrontation is concerned where it is a matter of principles, whether they are principles of deed, and of course, in Islam, there's no differentiation between principles of deed and principles of,
of natural justice. So where it's a question of justice, where it's a question of standing up for the truth, where the question of standing, standing up against oppressors and so on, we take, if confrontation is the only way of dealing with that then we are ready to take forward take that step and we are ready to confront, but
not in every matter.
So where there is flexibility, the lesson we learn is the way there is flexibility. We must always exercise flexibility, but where it's a matter of principle where it's a matter of, of how can battle of the truth and falsehood. Then of course we take the side of the truth and we stand for that no matter
What the consequences and so she decided to send some gifts to serverless lab and see if there was a way
to have peace.
So Mrs. Lam then said to his
military commander, the rudders he's quoted as the minister, he said all chiefs wish you can bring me her throne before they come to me surrending surrendering themselves in obedience, because this is what she realized from from Lucky's letter that they're going to come. And as we know, from the last class that believes, among other things, he was known for this Magnificent Throne of hers,
which was, of course, obviously kept, you know, very safely and so on. So some, as I've said, can you bring that throne here
now and he freed a strong one of the powerful gins one of the chiefs of the gin he said, I will bring it to you before you rise from your place. And Verily I am indeed strong and trustworthy for such work.
Allah free to mineral gin and Tikka be Kabbalah and the umami atomic, we're in the ALI Lockerby Yun Amin. He said, I will bring to you.
It said the freedom from the gym he said, I will bring it to you before you rise from your place meaning before this meeting is over. And Verily I am indeed strong and trustworthy for such work. And then Allah subhanaw taala tells us all at the end the hood Elmo Minal Kitab and Attica vehicula ie are the LA Katara folk for la ma who must run and the WHO cada min for the lira be Leah Balu Annie a school. Oh, Ash guru UK for one man show gara for Inaba. Yes cool enough see woman Guevara for in Nairobi Ivana Yun Karim.
Allah does it and then the Ginette spoken and then Allah said, one
Allah the end the Whoa, Elma Miller kita Allah did not even name that person. But you know that he will be
Allah is One who had some knowledge of the scripture from the books. And he said, I will bring it to you, I bring this throat you
in the twinkling of an eye before you blink your eyes.
And then when cinema is lactose, but he said that as far as I'm done, and there was a throat
and when he saw that, he said, This is how I am in fact,
this is the grace of Byron
Leah Balu Annie
a score of four
to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful. And then he is giving a word of advice
for in Nam is Guru Lena FSI
woman Guevara. He said woman, woman Shankara woman Shakira for Inaba, yes, Guru enough See, woman Guevara for Inara be one younger me, said, one with whom, and then he said that
whoever is grateful, truly is gratitude is for his own benefit. It is good for him. And whoever is ungrateful, he is ungrateful only for the loss for himself that his ingratitude will be as a means of harmfulness for him. How Mindo how for him, certainly by Rob geladeira, who is honey Yun, Kareem
he is the most bountiful and he is the richest and he has everything. Now,
these ayat have a very important lesson for us.
Because one of the great sources of confusion among Muslims, which in the extreme form actually leads to shirk is the understanding of karma
and modules that
a karma or a modular is something which is out of the ordinary, right if a tree speaks to you,
this is not normal, out of the ordinary, right,
anything like this.
If this happens, at the hand of Burnaby, it is called a modular and if it happens at the end of a non NaVi, it is called a Corolla.
Now in this story of Survivor Sarah, we have witnessed a Quran which is that we saw how
the jinn said I will go and bring the throat this man's
He said, I'm not going I don't need to go, I don't need to go. I don't, I don't need to bring he said by before you can blink your eye, the throne will be here.
So by whatever means he had, effectively what did you do? Think about that this role is either in a
Muslim likely it's in a very big
audience chamber audience hall, right. And obviously, this is inside the palace. And the palace is guided there a guarded day and night.
Yet this man, by means of the technology that was available to him,
he was able to use our modern terminology, he was able to D materialize that throw in that place in Sabah
and transport it
to wheresoever Ali Salam was in his palace in Palestine
and then reconstructed.
So he was able to do this that is a material thing, this is something which has this matter.
It has weight, it has height, it has length width.
It's not a thought. It's not just a, you know, a picture which is transmitting. This is actual physical thing.
But he's able to do that he's able to take this actual massive physical thing and to bring it from point A to point B, and he is able to do that in the blink of an eye.
So I want you to reflect on this and think about today we are very overawed by technology was all artificial intelligence, blah, blah, blah. Imagine here Allah not describing Allah not saying I did this as a, you know, some act of God kind of thing. No, this is and it is something which Allah subhanaw taala did not even mention the name of this band. So that's why they did not say there was this one man only his name was so and so. And he was known to be you know, great buyer sales or whatever, no 100 Like, obviously, he was a buyer's man. But the point is that this is something which is which Allah has monitored and described it as if it is something which is quite, quite
They almost anybody can do it kind of thing. Obviously, in this case, not everybody could do it, because this man had special knowledge.
So today, we are overwrought with technology. But just remember think that the kind of technology that was available, and people used
it really 1000s of years ago
was far more powerful than what we have today.
Take the people who build the pyramids,
for example, and read in detail about the pyramids. And tell me how somebody who,
at least to the best of our knowledge, they didn't have access to satellite photography, they did not, they didn't have access to all these kinds of stuff. And yet they were able to build these magnificent structures. And these are not built by slave labor, which is a big misconception.
These are built these were labors of love.
These were built as a as an act of riba as an act of worship by those people to their gods.
Because the king himself was considered to be a god.
But they had this technology
and they did it. So first, think about that. Second thing is think about is that here a lot of our data is talking about Kurama because this happened at the hands of this man who is not going to be so here is the man who did this.
And then Allah subhanaw taala through the reaction and response of syllabaries that I was teaching us, how must we react? If we see something like this?
How do we react? How many times have we heard the stories of all this? This person?
No, he did this and he did that and so on. And so mashallah, he is I will cassava,
this is a Corolla of him and he did it.
myself when you are Allah's model also mentioned easily Salah
and specifically ALLAH subhanaw taala mentioned the modules that are easily set up,
that he would make a bottle of clay then he would blow it to it and this bird would fly would get life. That he would cure the leper that he would tell people what they had in their homes.
And he would also raise the dead. But with every one of these things.
He said Islam always said I do this with the by the power of Allah. B is the law is the law.
By the order of Allah He did not say
do this though he said this is only because of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy to be a blessing to me.
So Islam could speak that I was a birds and ants and creatures.
Now this is a Kurama This is a mage, but what did he say when when he mentioned this, he said this is the this is the blessing that Mayra has given
in this case now,
here's an incident that has happened in front of him.
One of his Cortes enables this he makes this happen.
What is our Islam do? What is your Masha Allah so Allah you're such a fantastic guy, and you've got so much power and so much strength and you are able Kurama and this no, he does anything.
First and foremost, he says this is the father of Myra Alhamdulillah
have them in for the lobby.
And then he says
and this is where the knowledge of the RV shows itself.
He said this is the father of IRA
and then he says, This is a test for me.
Am I grateful or am I ungrateful?
So, the bogies are our major tests. So as a result of split the moon
and he did that not randomly because people demanded that they said if you are true as an enemy is split down. Now Allah subhanaw taala gave him the bar Allah subhanaw taala said, Make Orisha make a you know,
signal with your finger and Allah subhanaw taala will split the moon and the moon split. And they said we would see the mountains of the hammock between the two parts of the moon in the moon and back. Now
logically, what should happen? Logically, all the people of Makkah should have accepted Islam, because they were the ones who demanded this. And this is for this happened in Makkah. They were the ones who demanded this,
But still, they did not accept Islam
so much is that, and Kurama are a very big test for the individuals who
are privileged to witness them to survive Islam is telling us
that don't first of all, don't ask for them. Secondly, if you haven't asked for them if it happens, don't just think this is also nice. No, no, no, this is a big test. And the test is for the one who's witnessing it the test is for the one to whom it happened. And what is the test? Will you thank Allah or will you be ungrateful?
Will you say Oh, this is my power. But this is what I did. No, are we to say, I mean for the rugby, this is the father. This is the blessing of my rub Gentle, gentle, which one will you do?
has got us to do. Enable is always to give our focus on the power of Allah Subhana Allah to ask my powers to others than Allah is sure to let us not fall into that whatsoever.
And then survive Islam is giving advice to others to say whatever it is that we are now we are not talking about modules that are missing anything, whatever Allah has blessed you with, be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala and he says the man who is thankful that thankfulness is beneficial to him. That is for his own benefit. He's not doing a favor dollars granted.
He's just showing his integrity is thankful and therefore it's beneficial to him and the one who was ungrateful.
This ungrate This ingratitude is going to again rebound on the same individual and the individual will be
will suffer because of that
will be lost because of this ingratitude.
And this isn't.
As Martha also told us, this about insurance, sort of the Brahim where his airways does a boom, lay in Chicago boom Louisiana calm. What I uncovered when the Villa de la said and remember the time when you wrap proclaimed that the one who is grateful Allah subhanaw taala will increase his blessings for him and are ungrateful that him beware that My punishment is severe. Let's say that that person beware that the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala is severe. So gratitude is what we learned. We also learned not to commit ship. We also learned that the Mozart and the Kurama are always from Allah's vital data.
They are sent specifically for a particular purpose at a particular time.
It is not a power of the individual that he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants. No.
So let's understand that
So Bill case, decided against war and set up
to meet so device lab, and he told his people to alter the drone a little bit to test if she could recognize it
because there was that I had this access to these people who genes and so on who were master craftsmen. So he said disguise her throat.
Carla Nakoula Harsha. Nutzer attack 30 am the Konami the Latina like to do Bulama gerth when she came,
de la haka or Shuki kala ka who who?
The Butina Butina Elma Min cobbly have Akuna Muslimeen Asada ma cannith
Darboux mean Dhoni la he in her Garnet Min COVID Cafe, he said these guys are thrown, alter it a little bit. So that we will see whether she can recognize it or not. Whether she is guided or she will be among those who are not guided. So, when she came, it was said to her is your throne like this?
And she says yes, it is like this as though it was a very safe and cinema as Rob said knowledge was bestowed on us before her. And we were submitted to Allah subhanaw taala as Muslims before her
and that which which used to worship besides Allah has prevented her from Islam for she was of a disbelieving people
did Allah or the holy Asara phylum Otto Has Eva to legito Akasha. vet and pay her Allah in no starter home moto Adam min calvaria call at rugby in Islam to Nuptse was loving to Mara, so the mana Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa said to her and a son.
So this is the pilot, please come. And
so there was a law had created right at the entrance a
big, like a system of water. And it had a glass top. So the water was it looked like it was water. And when she saw it, she thought it was a pool and she you know, tucked up her clothes
and raised the the hem of her clothes up from below her ankles. And cinema Islam says that this is subtle. It is a glass surface with water underneath it. And Jesus said my rub. Verily I have robbed myself and I submitted Islam, which revised salam to Bula Alameen.
Now, these are all signs all these are all tests for Belize so that she will recognize Allah subhanaw taala and become Muslim. Anything as we just talked about the story is false and not something that is beneficial to conjecture about because it's one of those things which is, you know, talked about all the time.
So these are tests for her and she accepted. I mean she
because of them she drew, it drew attention to Allah subhanaw taala. For example, this, this the test of the Sun, which is the water in that glass, obviously are the obvious lesson there is that appearances are
misleading, misguiding. So this word looks like it is permanent, but it's not permanent.
In this world, there are things that look as if they have benefit, but they're not bad, they are not beneficial. So she is worshiping now the sun, sun looks like it's powerful, it's not powerful, actual bow is Allah subhanaw taala. So these are some lessons and therefore she accepted Islam. Now many, there were many secret cults of Jews, which were rooted in magic. And this the Jews learned this in in Babylon, where they had been taken as captives of Nebuchadnezzar, who sat Jerusalem long after
the Jews wonder the role of the Babylonians as slaves, and their their religion was distorted 70 of their rabbis.
They created a new
basis of law, which is the Talmud instead of the Torah. And they also learned magic from the they were the origins and chattin in Babylon, who's to teach people? Allah subhanaw taala called Magic Cofer. And Allah said Solomon did not make over because those Strategien who taught magic they did.
And this is an important thing to understand. And
I lost my dad, I said, when there came to them a messenger of Allah
was uncertain confirming what was with them. And we are talking about the
about the people of Makkah. A party of those who are given the Scripture threw away the book of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know. They followed what the shotty gave out falsity of the magic in the lifetime of semi Salah Saaremaa Islam lab did not believe but the Shatin is believed teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the to the to angels Harald and Merode. But neither of these two angels taught anyone such things still they said we are only for trial. So do not disbelieve by learning magic from us. And if people still insisted on on learning, they taught them but they said this is cool for learning. And if you love then you have
left your day.
And from these angels people
love that by love that by which they cause separation between the man and his wife, but they could not just harm anyone except by Allah's Leave. So one of the things they learned is magic is to create,
destroy marriages and create difficulties in conflict between people. But again, we understand that whatever happens happen by the machines of Allah, Samantha, and Allah said, and they learn that which harms them and profit them not. And indeed, they knew that the buyers of this magic have no share of the Hereafter. And how bad indeed, was that for which they sold their soul their soul sold themselves if they bought new
that even today we have astrologers and, and people who are fortune tellers and who tell stories. And of course, we have people who believe them and you know, they have all these armies and people making all sorts of amulets and visas and leave all of this is haram. All of this is Cofer, leave it don't go near it, never asked one of them to make dua for you never, never go to them and ask them to give you some talisman to walk away this is that keep your Akita correct and that is we ask Allah Allah,
Allah will give you so ask Allah Samaritan alone, nobody has. Allah said they believed if they had believed in garden themselves from evil and kept their duty, perhaps they are quite far better, would have been the reward from the era if they were.
So same thing, which is
understanding keep to the straight and narrow. Magic is Cofer magic is disbelief. And this includes teaching it and practicing it or using it in any form. Allah rarely mentions places and dates in the Quran because the Quran is meant for guidance. And it's not a history book. But about this magic Allah's parents mother specifically mentioned Babylon, higher than Marut came to Babylon these are two angels and by Allah subhanaw taala as a test
and they used to teach people magic but use all the but they always warn the people that they were a trial that they were a test and that they should not disbelieve because this knowledge is over.
magic exists, but its effects
are only by the will of Allah, the medicine for it is more the thing and either philosopher luck, rather than us and either Bootsy I always said that there was no illness for which Allah has not created a cure. Magic is the same. They have no power greater than the bottle hollows.
The gins do not teach magicians for free, and they extract a heavy price in terms of their soul.
Because legions are chatty the magician sells himself as Allah strengthens. Cure is in the Quran. So reading the Quran the right way is what happens is what gives you benefit. What are the lotto sent out an order saying kill all magicians. The Saba said that they found three magicians and executed them. Shutdown causes disunity among families, and is happiest when he does that. So the mind is allowing us to make that into some very difficult tasks and he used to use the word slave labor. This was punishment for the shotty which whatever Islam used to extract by making them work very hard and minimize and have died. He was leaning on his kid, but the jinn who worked for him did not
realize that he had already died until many days later. When termites ate through the cane and he his body, we find out Allah Subhana Allah says that this refutes the claim of magicians that the Djinn have knowledge of the web good how did they have knowledge of the web? They did not even know what was happening right in front of them. Follow them hada in Allah hell Mota mandala whom Allah Moti in the battle early Kulu means at the WHO phylum Hora Tobiah theologian no on a low can we Allah Maura, yeah, Ramona Vega, my love you to feel other will Maheen and when we decreed death for him, so my salah
Nothing informed the Djinn of his death, except a little worm of the earth which kept slowly gnawing away and eating at his stick so that when he fell down, the jinn saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have stayed in the humiliating dominance. They were. They were humiliated, they were being made to work as slaves, and they would run away. They were gone a long time ago because they know Okay, he's passed away, but they didn't know that. So where is the question of great
so the lesson is that the jinn or anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala does not know unripe. Magicians believe that the jinn know the future. And this is refuted by this if
we do not believe any of such any such things about anybody, the only one who knows the future and the past, is Allah subhanaw taala did Allah who himself nobody and nothing else, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to learn from the beautiful stories of Isabella and Scilab and to practice them in our lives or Salalah Hannah Bill Kareem while Ali he was savage main barometer karma Rahimi Oh Serravalle kumara hatherleigh who work
