very beginning of a while praising glory to a lot and inspires me said blessings to your family, his family as companions and all those who adhere to his guidance, and we ask a lot of soldiers to make us up.
We welcome everyone back to our study of social care. And we are going to complete the account of
this evening in sharp all the time.
We ask a lot to benefit us with it and to increase us beneficial knowledge and righteous actions always. So we said that don't rain rocky number block may Allah still mercy on him, was likely not for profit, but he was a righteous king, that Allah azza wa jal celebrated in the Quran for his righteousness. And for his qualifying to be a model for every leader in whatever capacity of leadership we may find ourselves in.
And after saying that, he established him on Earth and granted him great authority and access to any resource he would need. We read that he set out to people as far west as he could go, and they were a corrupt people and so He called them to Allah anti incentivize for them being good and he also warned them against
underestimating His wrath in this world, let alone the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal in the Hereafter. And so he urged his people in the farthest lands to reform and to live upright moral lives. And then we move on to 89. Now Allah azza wa jal says, Phil Metz Vassa, after he did his job there with those West, most dwelling civilizations or societies, he traveled all the way he's now and we said, this could have been one of the reasons why he was called Blue Collar main, the one with the two horns, right? Because the armies to call the corners of the earth, the east and the west, and he wrote this earth from east to us. That's what he was well known for and famous as the one who roamed the earth.
That's why he was titled will remain according to some other say it was a reference to his helmet that had two horns on the other side, it was made on the two horns needed two locks of hair because he had two boxes of hair, whether braided or ponytail or whatever else. But now he's going all the way eastward, the word says then x bar, then he followed a seven away, where did they get that word eastward from?
The next verse, the next verse says, had either better, or roughly i chips and finally it was a long journey. Only Allah knows how long the journey was, because he was at the westernmost point. And now Allah say, Vela mountain, the iShares he reached a place where the sun is rising, meaning the furthest place east where there's no more land to go and in front of you is just on the horizon the sun. So he reached the place where the sunrises foliage
homing Nigel level main duty has cetera. And he found there at that place, a people that we did not grant any veil, any concealment from it. Once it's here, the sun, the wind all the way east, to the eastern most place monthly I Shem. To the point of sunrise, these right sunrise to me sets in their life. And so when he got there, he found a people that had no shelter whatsoever from it from the sun, no veil, no protection from the sun. So these were a very primitive people, very uncivilized people. They didn't have homes, they looked back from the open. Some scholars didn't even wear clothing. They were you know, in the primitive folks wearing a loincloth and sometimes not even the
loincloth and just very primitive, very unrefined, very uncivilized.
no homes, no trees just out there in the sun, possibly not even any clothes. This is the type of people he found in this remotely eastern most region that he reached.
So what did he do with them? Allah azza wa jal says Quebec, just as he did, can VALIC meaning just like that, which you just heard about it the same way he helped the people in the westernmost region. Likewise, as I was saying, he did the same thing with these people. He called them to Allah and he educated them and he exerted them to living better lives, just as He did with them.
Western civilization, he did it with this eastern most civilization. He gave them that Allah He taught them law, he symbolizes them. And that's part of leadership as well. Remember, I stopped taking a nugget of leadership part of the leadership. Responsibility is for you to be the moral compass, the moral compass of your people, right? It's not just giving out orders, right? It's setting of them up in a way that would higher the likelihood of them living decent lives, and also providing for their worldly life. Right? That's part of leadership as well. You know,
when Allah Eliza lagenda wanted to give Faraj a warning about why aren't you worshipping Allah alone without any partners? He says fairly Abu rob the head and bait worship this the lord of this house, and let the abominable majority white men and women hope you guys are the neighbors of the cabin, you live right by God's house and you're worshiping other than God, why aren't you worshiping only the master of this house, the one who fed you from hunger fed you despairing from hunger? Well, I'm gonna have to cope and he grabbed him security, right. And so I've given you what you've needed. Now you can you should be focused on on your greater purpose. But sometimes when a person is poor, when
a person is hungry, when a person is distressed, they are not capable of thinking of beyond their two feet right beyond their next meal. And so him if he, if this is intense, and it looks like an incentive took care of their needs, he talked to them and showed them and granted them that is also a precursor for your data to be effective with people. So you can invite them to Allah azza wa jal.
And then it took off again from that seminar. So all of this is really building up to the third story, which is the story of the region nodules, formally translated in English as Gog and Magog, which is referenced in the Bible, by the way, but it is not mentioned in the Bible in the scripture that little Quatermain ever interacted with your Jewish imagined modules, right? This is a new tidbit of information that Allah azza wa jal is adding here they asked him about little karma and he Salah hearts and receive these I tell them about the colonnade and he adds to them more information than they ever knew. Like glucosamine was the one who confronted this barbarous tribal via
Jugendliche huge So firstly, what eastern most took care of the people that western most then even eastern most were the sunrises took care of the people over there and then took off again.
Always you can't be responsible for people you're not checking up on them all the time. Yet he's not sitting there just to indulge your comfort. He's getting to work
had that either Bella Verbena said they watch them in Dooney Hema Coleman lair care dude I have got Oh Nicola, Allah says that he kept traveling, until finally, when he reached a place between two mountains, which are these two mountains, only Allah knows. Right? Some scholars said he was in Central Arabia. So if you went to the western most part, I mean, it's somewhere near the Black Sea, then he went to the eastern most from there, that will be the Caspian Sea, and therefore the mountain ranges in the middle of a caucus mountains. And Allah didn't tell us right, so just don't overstress what is not important, or else Allah would have mentioned, it has been important. He
reaches a mountain range between two mountains. So there's like two mountains coming to each other. And there's a big pass between them.
And he found at the foot of these two mountains, a people, another society, another civilization here.
layer can do and I have a folder that could hardly ever understand anything that was being sensitive. Meaning these people were also so remote, that no one knew their language. You know, when societies interact with each other, they figured out ways they learn each other's languages. It's just necessary. But he's saying that these people nobody could undo they cannot understand anyone any of us or say. So for Wayne and his army. And in another recitation of this verse, layer care do not use the Hoonah cola
and they could hardly barely
be understood either. They couldn't understand them for me, nor could they explain anything back to them for me.
They could barely make things happen communicating with one another. But then it says follow Yeah, that for me. They these people who could hardly understand or or be understood, they said to them funny
what do you mean they tend to look for men if they can't understand each other?
Right? Like communication in the last saying wasn't there? Now I'd say they will communicate with me. So most of them
most of them like sign language or something.
I'm gonna live my best love I'm gonna he says the Navy had to recruit 70 translators just to have a conversation with them all the access yet right? Cliche etcetera. But he got every translator knows the word basically this guy knows one word, and then putting word puzzling together and sentences that these people just to figure out who they are, what they want, what they're doing. And know this is from the great humility of overnight. He's not just like, what's wrong with you people like speak human? Or as sometimes we get arrogant, they speak English. Why don't you understand English? Speak English, right? He's not doing that. He's going out of his way to make sure he discovers their
One understand, right, so he brings all these people together and they communicate to him. Yeah, there are 902 for me in there, Joe, Joe, Amanda. Julian obviously do not fill out. Yeah, Jews and Jews are corrupters on Earth.
So yeah, Julian managers the prophets of Allah told us are from Beto as these are human beings. I know there's lots of like, sort of different narratives about the eugenic jujhar. Some of them are found in the books. Some of them are found in like, the the bedtime stories are great, great, great grandparents and somehow trickle down to us, whatever it may be. They were human beings. They were not supernatural. They were not monsters. I mean, they had them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us there are two tribes of very large numbers from metal Adam, and they are very barbarous, they are very violent, they are very rash. And they would plunder. So they're saying they
are corrupters on Earth?
The he didn't say they have corrupted on earth. He said they are corrupters on Earth. What's the difference?
What's the difference between this person has corrupted? Right? Or this person has stolen?
And between this person is a thief? Your students?
Professionals? Would you say?
Perpetual, right? It's not like
hopefully boring service. I guess I could say I want a basketball game. Right? That doesn't necessarily make me a winner. Like what if my record is one and 50? Right. I'm not a winner. I'm surely a loser. But I've won. And so they're not saying these guys have attacked us. They're saying these guys are attackers. They are corrupters. Every single day they come out from between the surroundings, they come out to us from where they live. And they just they do horrible things. And horrible things likely means mass, violence, violence on a mass scale. We know that because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us that at the end of time, the Julian modules will be
released, unleashed on the world, right, they will come out at the end of time. And they will.
There's so much to be said. But they will think let's just suffice a point Howdy, they will think they have killed everyone on Earth. And then they will say to each other, we've killed everyone on earth. Now let's kill everyone in the heavens. And they will begin to throw their spears and their arrows upwards into the skies. And Allah will allow their weapons to come back down drenched in blood. So they think they've killed everyone in the universe, everyone above them and alongside them. So they were a violent people. They were murderous people. And also they, they would plunder a lot, they will use certain resources. The Prophet SAW was also mentioned at the end of time, there
are so many that when they come out, by the time they will reach a river. And by the time the last of the marches pass that river they will see there used to be a river here, they will have dropped off that river, that body of water. Right? And so they were corrupters
on this earth for Hell, Niger. Hello, like I found Jen. So can we give you some sort of payments? Can we pay you and touch Albania and Albania who said that so that you can create like a barrier between us and them?
You know, it's very interesting. You probably know the sort of information to create a barrier for them. We'll get to that next day. But they knew what they needed. But they couldn't make it happen. Right. They knew exactly what they need. I need a lock door right here. But I'm not a carpenter. I'm not you know, I handyman
I don't know how to do it.
And that's that is the hikma that Allah grants whoever he wishes right it's just like people know that the man is unity but they don't know how to do it yes the you know that we owe money to step up in terms of its religiosity become more familiar to the dean but how do you effectively do that is the whole the whole story right? And so it's not like for me I had a genius idea right? They had the same idea of just block aid this pathway they always come in and ravage our villages through block it for us because we don't know how
but they said I will pay you of course you know will pay us it's like what do you mean you're gonna pay like what do you possibly have that I don't have like let's delay when I said I'm send the message to the Queen of seven Shiva right?
And then he says to me do nothing demand you guys are like trying to bribe me or fly interested in money. What Allah has given me as far as everything is given domain is gonna say the same thing. The next day says Parliament McKinley fee here. AVI file. He said soon that with which my Lord has granted me has established me with is far better than any of us, you're gonna pay? I'm good. What Allah has given me it's better. This is not arrogance, right? It's not arrogance is describing the favor to Allah azza wa jal.
And he's saying I refuse to accept payment, Allah has given me all that I need and also given me a responsibility, it is my job. So how can I accept payment for it? Right? Allah has already given me and now I have to do this for the sake of Allah with what He has given.
It's my job to protect you. That is the lesson I want you to take. Every leader needs to recognize that his job is to protect his subjects, protect his family, protect his follow, protect his group, if you are incapable if you don't have the skill or the strength to protect, then you should look for someone to take the responsibility from you. So you don't have to answer for it. Right? You know, even on the last day, but I'm going to prefer Bob's life, I'm not going to drift too far, when they were saying to get a mural that we need, oh, leader of the believers after he was sad that he's bleeding and he's coming in out of consciousness. And so you have you don't have money. And that's
his name. I mean, to me, that's the title of started was wrong. I used to work last week loosely. But it was only us starting to climb over Omar, because it just started becoming too rock long to say, the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah the book, then you they were saying the Felisa of the believer of the Messenger of Allah right? It's funny for me, it's the successor. So I started calling me remote meetings when he was dying, saying you are going to need to vote die, basically. And he said to them, I am no longer your me and after today,
he's not just saying that the humility is because he's incapacity. Right. So the legitimacy of your leadership comes with your ability to serve your flock, right? So we sell them I am no longer that legitimately, we have to appoint the new Khalifa.
So likewise, he's selling them. Allah has tasked me with this. It's my job to protect my subjects. Just like the job of every leader. You just help me I need labor. I need manpower I knew need before. Grant me some strike. I need a labor force to do what I know how to do. I know what you need. I know how to get it done. I just need manpower.
Agile bayonet calm where they never more than roadmap. Why do you think he said you need to be on the ground with me working?
Why do you think he said that?
To teach them right teach them on many things. What are some of them?
Yeah, responsibility. What else?
How to build what else?
Teamwork, teamwork, mercy, I'll take it. Sisters anything.
Also to teach them the value of what they're about to get, you know, if you don't put your sweat into something you don't value, right. I want you to do the work. I'm not just gonna come into your country. You got to build your own country for yourself. You got to pick yourself up by your bootstraps. I'll show you out. I got the engineers and I got the plan but you need to execute. Or else you have to value. You know, like children many times they falsely and prematurely assume that their parents are cheap. Their parents are stingy.
Why because their parents don't want to be you know.
A spendthrift right extravagant than giving away money. Because that money if you squeeze it, the blood and the sweat, and the tears of the parents come out right with the kid gets it on a golden platter and I'll never know the value of right
So they've got an A in some of the scholars said wanted these people to understand that you have to put in the work you guys knew a long time ago that he strike you knew exactly what you needed you've been sitting here all day I'm going to show you but it's not going to be free you need to work and so he says to them give me strength supply you with manpower and I will place between you and them and the juju modules are awesome. There's like a nuance here that a lovely for here.
A subtle gentle they said build for us a set A set is like a blockade build a wall. So he said what I want to do is I want to build a random what is
What is it what is
random is basically to cave something in from above. Right? You have a hole and then you pile a little on top until it fills so then he says tune is overcrowded. Don't bring me go find these chunks of iron go mine the iron out of the mountains right mine it out and bring it to him until he leveled it all the way up. Had a there's our VEDA sada Fein. So the vein is the cliffs, the edges of the tops of the mountains, he has them just like throw these chunks of iron piles them on until they reach the top of the mountain, the cliffs of the mountains right. So they're actually doing it to the height of the mountain, not necessarily something underground, meaning they're not living on two
levels, they're living on the same level there's two mountains passing through he may dig a foot there for it but then he's going to fill the iron now all the way up to the top of the two mountains make sense? That's what I tell him to go bring the iron until he reaches the top but once he reaches the top with the with the iron has been laid the iron all the way up there. Call and fulfill he says Blow. Blow means what? You guys know the bellows that when the blacksmith is blowing into the fire to make it hotter and more and more intense feeding into the oxygen so it gets hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter so that it can melt what melt the iron so the iron starts taking parts of it to
each other. These are perfect breaks into chunks of iron from every direction you're piling it on different sizes, different shapes, you lock them in with the heat to become all one piece welding at the edges if you will, right.
Had that either jar level now and then when I had set it on fire, some scars that what he did was he put wood between all of the chunks of iron lit that wood on fire and they kept blowing on to the woods with fire more and more intense until the wood burned away and the chunks of iron had become welded together up until the top of the mountain
called Toony Ophelia Valley Utah and then after it was ablaze the fire the iron was heated it's hard to stick together he said Now bring me some molten brass you know brass and copper lighter metals the red metals right they're easier to melt and so he melted those pieces melt that so I can pour it into whatever cracks are left I'm sealing all of the holes now because the iron by itself is going to have tons of gaps in between it I'm going to pour over the top of it all brass to make it a smooth finish with no more gaps it's clear
he fills the gaps with it
famous spiral annual hollow who Why must the bar oh let me knock on that.
And for that reason. Yeah, Julian, Matt Jude were not able to scale it up they were not able to come over the wall.
Okay, so then under the wall on the other side, the scholar said they will not be able to like throw hooks to the grappling hook or something or figured out ways they were not able to get over it.
Okay, why must Allah are lucky enough of that normally you're able to like borrow a whole puncture and borrow a whole foods they could do neither. They couldn't scale the wall. Why could they see on the wall?
They said perhaps because the black grass was made in such a way that there was no place the shape of it. Now if you it's more malleable, the black brass the shape made it impossible for them to be able to scale due to this frictionless nature of the surface, nor could they puncture through it. This is iron fortified with brass. Okay. They could do neither. One last. Subtlety. The scholars point out here is that Allah said famous
and then when I step on, they were unable to scale it and unable to puncture it. But for the first unable he said the short version they need the same thing slot on is the bottle remembering the story but there'll be the same thing Skaro and estafa are both mean able right messed up our mess thought or both mean unable. But Why did Allah use the shorter word the lighter word was scaling, it would be easier
to scale a wall into functional field right. So he used the lighter word when he was speaking about the lighter test the scale it and use the heavier word Mr. Borrow one of those the more difficult task which is puncturing through the through this barrier, clear.
And after you finish this humongous project is great operation. He said had rugby, this is a mercy from my Lord. What's the mercy from his Lord?
To be able to protect these people through that barrier from major modules
because nobody can try to do too much.
He didn't fight them by the right and at the end of time, a salad slam Allah.
Allah will commanded to fleet so he praised Allah He thanked Allah some said he prostrated to Allah and gratitude that he was able to complete the job and protect these people by the mercy of Allah from it usually reduces assaults.
But then he reminds him this is only temporary I'm doing what I can. But either Jaya Alonso Rob Beija Allah who the care worker in our lobby have gone but when the Promise of my Lord comes to pass,
when when it comes to pass judgment whose will emerging and
what can be and the Promise of my Lord is true. So he tells them it's temporary. I'm doing this and mercy from Allah enjoy it while it lasts. A time will come on. Yeah, Jujin modules will come out again. Allah azza wa jal sent to us in one other place in the Quran. So Colombia had the era food has Yeah, Juju Amma juge that time will come when you are judging due to be released. Or the pathways will be made open for them. While homing cool, they had the vignette saloon, and you will see them swarming from every value every gun that's out they'll be swooping down and attacking from every direction.
And when will that be? That will be when a Sally's Jesus peace and blessings be upon him returned to this world the prophets of Allah audiences have told us and these are clearly established
in the Quran and Sunnah that reciting Salam will return at the end of time, right?
And that he will lead the Muslims
behind under the authority of the malady of the Muslims, which is a man from the descendants of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam This is another another prophet is not someone bringing a scripture, this is a righteous man who will lead the ummah. But Allah will send down a Salem, Salem to die normal death but first before that normal human that everyone was says he has a particular assignment, which is to fight and kill and Missy hit the jab, which is the false messiah, the antichrist that will emerge at the end of time. After the result, he set out kills at the Gen X bad loot that looted victim of this in Jerusalem, the loot the gate,
then the Judean module, which will be released on the world.
And Allah azza wa jal will reveal to RingCentral in salatu salam that I have
unleashed yet Jujin modules and these are people that know why they can withstand, so happiness very badly enough to so you gather all of my righteous servants and go seek refuge on top of mountain on top of
gelato where Allah azza wa jal spoke to Musa they set up. And so they will do that. Yes, usually my dudes will emerge they will wreak havoc on the earth, so much so that they will think they killed everyone on the earth. They will not know that recently sometimes with the Muslim army on Mount too, they will think they killed the inhabitants of the heavens that killed the angels if killed God Himself, oh, the villa. And then when the Muslims are in a very difficult state,
on the verge of starvation,
they will make incessant
Right to Allah azza wa jal, and he will send one of the smallest Street Preachers, a bug of sorts, to bite and in fact, the Jujin Meduza, in the backs of their necks and in their mouths and elsewhere, and they will all fall from a plague of sorts, they will all die.
And then a silence them and the Muslims will finally descend from outdoor and plead to Allah azza wa jal
to remove their bodies from the earth, because the stench of their rotting corpses, their rotting bodies will be unbearable. And so Allah Azza it will send a torrential rain that will wash away their bodies and rid the earth of it. The last thing to be said here
after asking a lot that we're not alive during this time
where is yet Jews and Jews trapped today? Where are they? Right? And
the reason we asked you this is because our scholars have recognized historically that the Hadith on yet Jujin land use current whereabouts and current identity is not very clear, right? Because yes, the prophets of Allah who told us it, usually Jews will emerge will attack will be on a rampage that does not necessitate even though you know, majority of our early scholars who mentioned this, but it is not an eye or Hadith there's no excuse, or honey to say they are the same exact people or descendants of the same exact people. And maybe a healthy analogy for this, the idea of the Romans, when the province often speaks about the Romans at the end of time,
it is pretty well recognized that the ideological or theological inheritors of the Romans are Western civilization, even though they don't call themselves Romans, but he's also called the Romans, right? Christian dumb, right, that idea. And so some of our scholars believe that they are people that have the same level will be released on Earth, right, will have access to rehab it on earth, not necessarily the same people who have been alive where their descendants are underground, being, you know, increasing a number and all of this, that's not necessarily the case, also implicate the ranking of Allah. He was among the people who said that that famous Hadith that I will
write or the Allah handle, where he mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you had huge unmet Jews are digging through the whole daily and every day, they forget to save in sha Allah tomorrow and finish the job until they come back tomorrow and the whole is restored, they have to start thinking all over again. This is not like a modern interpretation in the cathedral. After all, Allah believes that hadith is problematic. That hadith is probably a confused report, not actually from a lawyer from the rockstars I love but one of the
statements of capital as well.
And so and so the Hadith if the hadith is not authentic, then we don't really have any authentic hadith besides that to say that they're currently still trapped somewhere where no one can ever find them. Is Allah overall things capable? Of course he is. Yes. But at the end of the day, the clear a hadith like that hadith about them, puncturing the hole every day, through the wall, the iron wall, that's it's clear, but it's not authentic. According to early scholars, some early scholars have problematize, the Hadith, then you have a hadith there are not as clear and they are authentic. Right, they don't necessitate that they do Juma Jews would still be around today. And you know, some
of our scholars also believe that illusion methods already came in the form of what
that's the genuine self
in the form of the Mongols, right? Because some Hadith about the juju modules, what was mentioned that they have noses that look like they've been hammered in, so like smaller noses or flatter noses and otherwise, so when they saw the facial features and the brutality exhibited by the Mongols,
they said the Prophet SAW sentiment towards the end of time, and from the Mongol period until now was not that very long. And so it didn't mean right there.
They argued against the fact that they would be released after the gym. And
above the national grid, Tunisia, Scotland Festival, the plan was of those who held this view
and, and others and others. So the point being is that some scholars said that descendants of these people are those who resemble the equalities these people are those that will be released at the end of time, that they are those that will wreak havoc on the world. You
While many other scholars say Allah has over all things capable and they are trapped with the trap of good for domain
and they just keep forgetting to say Charlebois. In one day, they will remember. And they may even add to that state, Nas and Yanni to supplement some more proofs. They'll say that this hadith that says they don't say Insha Allah, along with Zuta kept mentioning in sha Allah multiple times we've studied them throughout the day, suppose that I forgot the same sha Allah and then Musa lism says that you do need in sha Allah sobre la, this will fit in perfectly we can do did my Jewish being trapped until they say that until the day in which they say Java, right? I know, I tried to crunch it a lot, you know, in those last 10 minutes, but it's usually a common question about like, Okay,
where are they today? Like, can I find them on Google Maps or something? So it could be Allah secret is certainly capable of hiding whatever he wants to find out what data or it could be simply that it's not intended that these very people are trapped away from all of humanity since that time, right? Because the Hadith that I have mentioned that they're being blockaded from attacking their neighbor of people, that's it, they could have went up and bothered School Notes or down on bothered someone else, it could have been any of these things right. So it doesn't necessitate from what we learned in these if they're actually arrive and around but, you know, hidden in plain sight away
from us all and Allah Allah knows best. It's not like it's one of the fundamentals of Islam to believe exactly where they are or who they are. Otherwise we believe what the Quran said the plan is brief about these things. Allah Tala Allah so Allah says a lot of kind of game that will come someday
