Like I mentioned before, if I ask you to learn how many stories you have in your life, you tell me Oh, I have so many stories to tell you, anybody have so many stories, even though you lived only 34 years or 50 years? How about Allah subhanaw taala chose this 2530 stories from Adam and Eve salaam, all the way to the day of judgment. He picked those few stories through that shows you how important are the stories to be learned and implemented in our life.
Today's story is very well known
it has a surah named after it in the Quran. And today's story is the story of the people of of the cave, as hub, as hobble calf.
a narration about the reason for the revelation of the surah
SOTL calf, there's a reason is a narration mentioned that have been cathedra. And I checked on it and it turned out to be weak narration which we all know people came from Medina
to crush or crush and two men to Medina to ask the Jews. How can we test Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and then they came back and say ask him three questions. Ask him about the people of the cave, ask him about the man who traveled from east to west and ask him about the soul. If he answered two out of three that means he is a prophet.
So this narration in the beginning of it, it says rational must three.
So there is a unknown, one of the narrators is unknown. So the narration is weak by itself. And many many people use this as the reason for the revelation of Surah Alkaff.
Now the story starts by Can you give me
the story is started
by Allah subhanaw taala is telling us
and by the way, we all know that circle cafes if you open the Quran in the middle, right in the middle is Surah calf. So the story took around 12 to 15 hours to discuss the story. So Allah subhanaw taala said, and Hasidic and as herbal Kathiawar rocky McCann woman, Tina algebra.
So it's talking to Rasul Allah Salah Salem.
And he's telling him
Do you think that the story of the people of the cave is something strange ajeeb achieved is the same in order, right? The same thing is ajeeb.
Because sometimes, we
like for example, President baju I want you to give us a lecture that yeah, and he will put me on fire.
They want the Sheoak to become Arnold Schwarzenegger and you know, become action figures. And I want to know this Subhanallah and we forget, we forget the moral of the of the whole idea of the Halacha. Yanni sometimes we get so amazed by how the ocean split with Musa alayhis salam, and we forget the greatness of the ocean.
And we forget how many great creatures are in the ocean and how this ocean is functioning. We get so amazed by the moon by the splitting of the moon and we forget the greatness of the moon. We get so amazed by people reach the moon, which is something great but we forget that this is nothing compared to the rest of the creation the harlequin Sonata on all these Milky Way's that are millions of Milky Way's and this earth is is a small.in this whole Milky Way and there are 10s of millions of Milky Way's and we get amazed by something simple and we forget the Creator
so Allah saying Do you think that keeping seven eight people seven people or whatever we're going to discuss in sha Allah in a cave for 300 and something years is something strange or something hard for Allah subhanaw taala it's not something hard. It's very easy for Allah subhanaw taala very easy and passive does have a look if you are rocky McCann women 18 algebra is I will fit here to El Cap. So how is the story started the story started by there was a village
ruled by a king and these people were worshipping idols
youth young fit here. fit here
is plural of Fattah.
There were young men,
that they did not like what they see.
They did not like what's going on, they definitely felt that it's impossible that this whole world is running with these idols impossible. There has to be a creator. And they were from very, very rich families, they used to live a very luxurious life.
These details are extremely important and you will know why in a second.
So they did not know each other.
They did not know each other.
There was a major carnival festival, wherever you want to call it in the village celebrating the items, so they decided to refuse to attend. And they went there sat down, one of them left and sat down under a tree, the other set another under another tree, and then they met each other and they said, What are you doing here, and then Subhan Allah, just like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Alka lube, you know, don't move Canada.
The hearts are like soldiers. If they
are on the same page immediately and instantly, you feel like they felt the love right away. And if they are not on the same page, immediately, no matter how nice they were, could be, but they're not on the same page, they would repel from each other. So all of a sudden, these young men, they get together. And they
spoke about the situation in the village and how they hate what's going on and they have to do something.
I'm going to take one lesson today, discuss it
or a couple of lessons.
And then as we go, we will discuss the story of
respect to the brothers and sisters. These people were living a luxurious life.
The big palaces,
they serve servants, the bodyguards, whatever they want
children of kings.
So the matters of dunya that a lot of us are striving for and struggling for and forgetting their Deen because they had them already.
They had it.
This is on one side on the other side, listen carefully.
These young men did not have massage it did not have she you did not have YouTube did not have lectures, did not have role models to look up to. There was no profit at that time.
There was no universities to teach Islam.
With all that,
being not available.
They still rose and figured that there's something wrong and we got to do something about it. And Allah, honor them, honor them.
By making us
review their story, once a week.
Once a week, to read the story, in the best day of the week, read their story, and understand their story and live their story. This is our problem. We take the stories as just a story, beautiful story. But why these people of the cave was so honored why there has to be a command for the solar system is telling us to read this story every single Friday 52 times a year.
So without any support, without any
information, enough information, they were able to stand up
and obviously, become victorious.
So the first lesson
if you're truthful with Allah, Allah will make things easy for you.
They were truthful, they were sincere. They wanted the heat to be established on Earth.
And they did what they can do.
I can't change everybody.
When they attempt to move.
They decided to leave everybody
because they were prosecuted the first thing that comes to your mind.
I was taught to go to the cave. What if there is no air conditioning?
In the cave, what am I going to eat there? What am I going to drink there? What if there were snakes in the cave? What they're going to do to me they're gonna arrest me
Don't say any of that. They put the trust in Allah and Bismillah
and they were honored to the level that till the Day of Judgment, the story will be told and people will be reading it every Friday.
so the main
one of the main lessons of the story of the people of the cave
is that when I notice
and I feel that I cannot practice my Deen somewhere
I have to do something
yeah by the Alladhina Amman
in out of the US Yeah. For in yah yah boo don't
sweat Lanka boat.
Oh my slaves
is fast was huge.
And then he reminded us for the reason why are we here? So worship me.
Not of us. Yeah. Yeah, you're fat boo. Don't worship me.
there was so many people fighting
or mistreating the woman with hijab so I have to take off my hijab ya Allah
Ya Allah I could not pray if I pray at work that he's going to fire me
yeah Allah we could not do this we could not do that. Yeah Allah
You named it these names Manzil Allah will be having some fun all these names of the countries you named it but it's all my land
and whatever. You could worship me the best
because this is what you're going to be questioned about.
Right after that, Ryan right after it what is it?
Why? Why does it right after that? Because we keep delaying.
It would be okay. Kelowna.
Remote, you're gonna die. Every soul. The King will die. The president the white, the black, the rich, the poor, the Muslim, the non Muslim, the Arab leader, an Arabic You will all die? And what are you going to say? Yeah, Allah. When he asked me and he asked you, why didn't you worship me? Why don't you pray on time? I only put you on earth to do one thing and he did not do it. You were worried about the risk to as right after that. Allah gives the resume to whomsoever he wants.
What are you worried
serve, the reason you're created for and I'll take care of everything.
That's what he said, Subhana serve the reason that you were created for and I'll take care of everything.
One of the stuff I used to say.
he asked me to worship Him. And He promised me to take care of my risk. So I'm doing my part and he's doing his
but we are always scared and weak and afraid. What if? What if? What if
these people even though they have no lectures every single Monday, Thursday, Tuesday, they have no easy click to any chef who could they could bring any chef from earth to their living room.
And the Hadith, Quran miracles right in front of their hands, they've had none of that. And they stood up and said that's it. You cannot take this anymore.
Even though I cannot maybe make the change. I'm leaving. But the cave is this dark hug. So right Allah will take care of everything.
And Allah did.
Allah did miracles.
And we're going to see what how he changed the sun, how he how he made the location of the of the cave, so convenient, because they did something for him and he is ready to change the geography for them.
trust in Allah subhanaw taala
