00:00:01--> 00:00:42

Manny Rahim In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala nourisher cherishes sustainer creator protector of one and all will suddenly will send him Allah and Amina Mohammed. While early he was happy he has remained committed complete blessings and salutations upon Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon him and all his companions and all those who have followed him, may we be from amongst them truly and may our offspring also be from amongst them, I mean, honor the roula beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, the surah that we

00:00:42--> 00:01:35

completed this evening is a very important surah that I'm sure many of us would either have memorized by this time or would have memorized at least parts of it, and that is total caf. The surah is named after the cave, the cave in which several use happened to sleep for 309 years according to the verses of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala has named the entire surah after this group of youngsters and the cave that they had slept in. And probably the underlying message is, what these youth tried to achieve and why they ended up in the cave. If we take a close look at the verses of the Quran, we will find that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the dua that was

00:01:35--> 00:02:24

made by these youngsters. Now one of the narrations which is also a solid narration states that these seven youngsters did not know one another, prior to having arrived at the grave, sorry, at the cave. And what had happened is what each one of them was concerned about the surroundings, there was a tyrant ruler, and there were a lot of discrepancies with regards to the manner in which people were handling themselves the Phaeton and the various tests of the time, the sins that were being committed, and the persecution of anyone who felt otherwise or who did not engage in the sin. So each one of them made a which Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of in the Quran Rabanne

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

Tina, Gina Mila

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

amin, Amina Masha, Allah,

00:02:37--> 00:02:53

grant us from you, mercy and guide us or make easy for us, the our future and make easy for us that which lies ahead, make it very, very

00:02:54--> 00:03:38

within your commands and within the confines of what would please you, each one of them made this dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness in our affairs, that is what they said. And Allah subhanho wa Taala responded the call by doing something very simple, immediately after making mention of this dua, Allah subhanho wa Taala responded, before we get to that response, these use, the one went away from his people. He ended up in the cave, some time later. The other one came in some time later, the third one came in each one spoke to the other. Why are you here. And every single one of them according to one of the narrations, every single one of them said, I am here

00:03:38--> 00:04:13

because of the difficult times there is a tyrant ruler, I believe in the oneness. These people want us to worship idols and will and engage in shear and associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I am here because now I cannot stay with him. I need to run away with my deal. And I need to keep my deed in tact. So I'm here praying for a miracle. And imagine seven of them had the same response. And Allah subhanho wa Taala and answered the call. Do you know what he said? And this is probably according to me, the highlight of the entire Surah savarna Allah

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

cc Nina,

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

just that portion of the verse, Allah says so therefore, as a response to their duty, of mercy and of guidance, we sealed their ears for many years in that case. What does this mean? This means what we listen to at times contaminates our minds, contaminates our bodies contaminates our thinking contaminates our whole life. Allah says they asked for mercy. My Mercy only dictated that their ears be sealed. That's it. For many, many years, there was nothing else. So this in a nutshell is probably the message of the entire so watch out what you listen to

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

To make sure firstly it is not the sound of shaitan. Secondly, make sure also it is not something incorrect. Make sure that you do not listen to things and believe them without verification and authentication, or you shall regret. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I had mercy on these youth, I seal their ears when they got out 309 years later.

00:05:28--> 00:06:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala says the time had changed. They were now rulers that were just and they came out fearing still, that the rulers who whom they had left there, because they did not know precisely how many years they were in the cave, they were fearing that probably the same rulers will be outside. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala showed them his mercy. And Allah subhanho wa Taala showed them that he is all able and all capable these will not ambia they will not messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala but they were granted the miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala as mercy and Allah save them from the environments. May Allah protect us and our offspring and those to come up to the day of the

00:06:10--> 00:06:54

AMA from the environment for definitely today. The question I have is, we all know how terrible the situation is outside? Shouldn't we all be in a cave? May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us? For those who understood what I'm saying. And in fact, let me clarify to prevent misunderstandings. What I mean is, we should definitely divorce ourselves from the adverse environment and try to make our environment, the masjid, our environment, the good company, our environment, those who are righteous and inshallah, by so doing, we will be heading in the right direction. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of several other miracles that took part while they were in the case. The one miracle

00:06:54--> 00:07:05

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the sun which rose every morning, and which sets every evening missed them totally.

00:07:06--> 00:07:49

And they were sleeping in the cave with a little hole, which had a little bit of light, but the light did not hit their bodies. And from this later on, science discovered that sunlight actually ages a person, those who refrain and abstain from sunlight, they look much younger than those who are weatherbeaten and go out and work on a daily basis. That is a miracle. Allah subhanho wa Taala kept them for three centuries. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala kept them as young as they were the day they went to sleep. Amazing. That is the qudra of Allah subhanho wa Taala I see many people are smiling, most probably people are wondering what that

00:07:51--> 00:08:29

in fact, what the ingredients are to remain young May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us all fit and healthy so that we can worship Him and so that we do not transgress him. At times Allah subhanho wa Taala cripples us as a mercy because when we were healthy we transgressed. So he says this worshipper of mine, if he is crippled, he won't be able to transgress, and in return, I'll give him Jenna but sometimes we still curse Allah subhanho wa Taala after he has done that to us, because we do not understand the plan of the Almighty. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance of the deal at all times, and may He never test us with tests that are too difficult to pass. So Allah

00:08:29--> 00:08:37

subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the miracle of the sun. The second issue that is mentioned in the Quran, is the fact that they slept with their eyes open.

00:08:38--> 00:08:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, watch AXA boom, I call Oh boom Roku.

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

Boom that anime was a shame.

00:08:53--> 00:09:19

If you looked at them, you would think that they are awake, yet they were asleep. And the last is in their sleep, we cause them to move left and right. According to the movement of the sun, we did not want the sun to touch them. So they moved automatically in our sleep. Up to this day. Miracles occur without us realizing if you are suffering to breathe in your sleep, at times automatically you will shift position without even knowing

00:09:20--> 00:09:46

there is no need for automatic transmission fuel fluid and so on. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala says God has automatically everything happens. And yet we still do not think Allah subhanho wa Taala Imagine if every moment we felt uncomfortable, we had to wake up that is a sickness. We are luckier as all I mean, so Allah subhanho wa Taala then says law with Paula da lamela later mean whom

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

if you had seen these youths, they were sleeping with their eyes wide open, you would have run away. You would have been afraid of them. And from this the alhama have extracted the gym. What is the gym

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

The gym is the right of a person who has passed away in your presence

00:10:06--> 00:10:19

if someone dies in your presence, and that is not our topic tonight, but I want to just mention the one point extracted from this list. It is the right of the person who is standing there to first close that person's eyes.

00:10:20--> 00:11:01

At times the eyes may be open. It is our duty to take our hands and to try to close those eyes. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says it is part of the owner of bamboo Adam, that when he is asleep, he sleeps with his eyes closed. When he is dead, he dies and his eyes should be closed as well. Had we seen someone who is dead and it happens at times and the eyes are wide open. That scene and picture would probably not leave your mind for years to come. It will haunt you and me May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. He says it in the Quran. Yes, it is going to haunt you. And for that reason, we must close the eyes. And remember if the eyes don't close, don't take a piece of

00:11:01--> 00:11:41

sellotape and now try and force them closed and so on. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah safeguard us, our duty is only to try the rest is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala after making mention of the story of the people of the cave, one more point before I continue to something else in the same surah Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how long they stayed. And the fact that there was a dispute regarding the number, the precise number were they seven were they eight, were they five? What was their number? Or was the dog the ACE? Because there was a dog and imagine that dog? It was just the dog in the company of youth who were dedicated to

00:11:41--> 00:12:24

their Creator. What did that dog gain? in return? The minimum a dog gained by being in the right company was to be mentioned in the Quran. Subhana Allah. So today with us, I'm sure we are all no comparison to an animal. In sha Allah, we are much better to remain in the pious company for years in sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala would mention us by name according to generation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Whenever people are seated, and they are remembering Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of them by name to the melodica. To say this worshipper of mine is seated that worshipper of mine is seated, if only we could feel that we would be spiritually

00:12:24--> 00:12:38

rejuvenated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this verse, whether that be through Vika see him Salah me see Nina was the duties.

00:12:39--> 00:13:04

Allah says they lived in the cave for 300 years, and an excess of nine years. I've mentioned this in the past, let me repeat it. The reason why the excess of nine years is mentioned is because in 300 solar years, one would need precisely nine extra solar years in order to arrive at or in fact, to arrive at lunar years.

00:13:05--> 00:13:52

So the difference between the solar and the lunar years in 300 years is nine years. We all know that if a person has lived for 35 years, the Islamic age of that person would probably now be 36. Because roughly every 35 years, one would gain one more Islamic year, which is the lunar year. So the previous scriptures had made mention of 300. Here if someone looked at it, and they would say, Well 300 is going according to the solar calendar, Allah says Hang on, it is an excess of exactly nine years. And if you are to pick up your calculators, you would probably work it out that exactly 300 years, you would get nine years because if it was 350 years, you would get 10 years, 35 years, one

00:13:52--> 00:14:35

year, 350 years, 10 years, 300 years, nine years. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the comprehension of the miracle of the Quran. One more point, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the dog, do you know that they are some of the people of the book, who split into two groups solely because they had a huge debate in their religion as to the color of the dog of the people of the cave. So some said it was light in color and some said it was dark in color. And the entire church split into two groups. And to this day, they are split into the same two groups and in fact, many more each group has been subsequently split into so many. And Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us of

00:14:35--> 00:14:53

doing the same. He says fella to marry up him Do not dispute about them. My dear brothers and sisters and listeners there are certain things there is no need for us to know what Allah subhanho wa Taala has not told us. I know of people who have come to me, and they've asked me a question.

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

For example, and this is just one question and you'll get the gist of what I'm trying to say. Is it true that the prophets of Allah

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

While he was alive, he's going to be married to the wife of Iran in the era. The reality is whether he is or is not. It's got nothing to do with my Eman Salas aka Hajin a bada and it absolutely would not be authentic if I said yes or no nothing. So to know that is absolutely a waste of time. Absolutely. People are asking that question and it becomes the point of interest in their lives, roll up their sleeves, and they'd say, is it true that zulekha would be the wife of use of Allahu Salatu was Salam and so on. Believe me.

00:15:35--> 00:16:15

The what we really need to understand is wow, is my Salah in order and my zaca everything is going astray. And I am busy worried about something that I'm not going to be asked about on the day of May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson from the verse he has revealed in tonight's Surah Surah. Allah says, Do not debate and argue about such things, how many they were it doesn't make the point. The point is why they were in the cave and inshallah we've got to that may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of and I'm going to move very quickly through a few verses of surah to calf. The first verse that I'm going to mention is the

00:16:15--> 00:16:29

verse way Allah says, You Obama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say the truth and utter it and conveyed then whoever wants to believe may believe and whoever does not want to believe may not believe and they are responsible for their

00:16:30--> 00:16:52

reaction to the truth, those who reacted in the correct manner, inshallah they will get rewarded, and those who reacted in the wrong manner, they will be punished. So this verse actually shows us that in Islam, we do not force people to become Muslims. We do not force people to become Muslims have become famous.

00:16:58--> 00:17:40

For u O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uttered the truth from Europe, whoever then once shall believe and wherever then does not want to shall not believe and face the consequences of it. So our duty is only to convey the message we know that even amongst our own Muslim youngsters, we cannot force them to come to the masjid. At times, we cannot force them to give up smoking at times, what we've got to do is try we make the draft we speak to them, we address their minds, and we try to mention the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala give a balance between hope and fear and hope that they would obviously turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And ultimately, it all lies in the hands of

00:17:40--> 00:18:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala. May He guide us all. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of two men in Surah tuskers, one of them being granted some Gardens by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And these gardens were really very, very rich in the harvests, and very, very rich in crop and so on. And Allah says, The Man Who we granted a lot to was a disbeliever. And the man who we granted very little to, almost no two was a believer, but the believer never, ever questioned. And the disbeliever said, well, I've got so much and as this will never ever deplete, and I'm sure when I die, I'm going to have that which is even better than this. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of

00:18:24--> 00:19:03

this. And he looked at the movement, and he says, I've got more than you. I've got more than you in every way. And the believer looked at him and says, Do you know that you've just believed in the owner of all this grace that drops from heaven, all this crop and all this that you have? The owner of it, the one who's granted it to you? You have this believed in him by making these utterances? Do you know that he can actually take all this away from you overnight? And as for me, Allah subhanho wa Taala It is my hope that He grants me and he makes me content. Do you know what happened sometime later? That is precisely what happened. Allah subhanho wa Taala took everything away from the

00:19:03--> 00:19:11

disbeliever. And he began to question and turn and toss and he said, I wish and I hope but it was too late to wish and hope.

00:19:12--> 00:19:55

I wish and I hope that I had listened to that friend of mine who told me to thank the Lord may Allah subhanho wa Taala really and truly make us from amongst those who are thankful. Remember, if you are rich today, make use of that wealth in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala there might come a day when that wealth will go, then what would happen then it may be too late. One of the Hadith says seize the opportunity of your wealth before you become poor. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the seizure of opportunities of health before we are found very, very weak and lame at times. May Allah grant us the opportunity of ultimately seizing the opportunities of life as well before we die and

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

it is too late. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala also makes mention of

00:20:02--> 00:20:09

Towards the end of the surah, should we inform you who are the losers? This verse is a very important verse.

00:20:10--> 00:20:20

Cole hallowen Abdi otaku sarina Melanie levena Bala lasagna homefield hyah. T, to

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

whom you have seen Oh no. So

00:20:27--> 00:21:07

should we inform you of those who are real losers, those who they do a lot of these in this dunya, which are really astray. And they feel that they are on the right path. And they are arrogant about it, and they justify whatever they are doing. And they feel that no, I am on the right path. And yet they are very, very far from the Quran, from the Sunnah of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. Those are the losers, people who think that they are it, I was about to say it, but I think it is connected to information technology. So we won't say that. But those who really and truly feel that they are the ones and everyone is worse than them. That feeling itself makes a person worse than

00:21:07--> 00:21:48

others. And we should understand this, we are equal. In fact, most probably our sins are far more than those others around us and maybe if they have sinned, who knows Allah may have forgiven them, and Allah may not have forgiven us, there might be one deed in the deeds of a drunkard that Allah might look at. And Allah subhanho wa Taala may just accept his Toba who knows. And with us, there might be no deed that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves because possibly even our Salah we were just reading it in order to show off May Allah save us. So for this reason, we should always humble ourselves. Look at how this message repeats itself in the Quran, in so many different places and in

00:21:48--> 00:21:54

so many different ways, but the underlying message is one may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding

00:21:55--> 00:22:40

then in the next surah, which is so that Miriam, Allah subhanho wa Taala has named an entire surah after the Virgin Mary May peace be upon her Maryam Allah salatu wa sallam in this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala commences with the issue of children. And in fact throughout the surah the highlight is the gift of Allah when it comes to progeny and family members. And the word used is what hubba hubba is to give a gift. This is why whenever we are making to ask for children, we've got to use Yamaha boo. Oh you who gives gifts because children are a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we'd like family members who are assets to us, we really truly need to make do our Yamaha

00:22:40--> 00:22:53

boo who is the grant of gifts, and this is zaccaria salatu wa sallam made a dua, he did not have male offspring. And he says, Yeah, Allah have been heavily,

00:22:58--> 00:23:14

heavily, heavily is the same word Wahab Oh Allah grant me a gift of a good progeny pious offspring. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how he answered this old man after many, many years. Yes, I carry.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

Meaning meanies mucho

00:23:22--> 00:24:11

oza Karissa, we are giving you good news regarding a child that you shall have named yahia nobody has been granted that name before him. yahia May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all children who can really be living Muslims and who can bring Islam alive in our own homes? I mean, so Allah makes mention of that child. Then Allah makes mention of the child who was born miraculously no father, that is a Sally solemn Jesus May peace be upon him. The chapter of Mary in the Quran May peace be upon her Maria Maria Salatu was Salam. In fact, a brother asked me why do you use the English words? The reason I'm using it is over the airwaves, most probably we may have non Muslims who are

00:24:11--> 00:24:55

listening to us. If we are just to say Maria alayhi salatu was Salam or Isa, they may not know what we are uttering. For that reason it is important that we use these words so that anyone and everyone could know who we are referring to. So Jesus May peace be upon him as Allahu salatu wa sallam his miraculous birth. Allah makes mention of it in the Quran, that he was born to a mother without the interference of a male in the same way that Eve and how wa alayhi salatu wa sallam was born through a male without the interference of a female. And in the same way, or we I don't want to use the word born but rather created. Adam alayhi salatu was Salam. The first human being was created was neither

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

male nor female. And with us all we are created through male and female

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

Allah has mentioned all the four categories of creation, the four types of creation. Each of the three, there is one person who is created and the last one through male and female, every single one of us and hamdulillah is created in that manner. We need to understand the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then in Surah Maryam towards the end Allah subhanho wa Taala says, How can people say I have a son? How can they say that, and this is the verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, The earth is about to explode and the sky is about to burst as well. And the mountains are about to fall prostrate because of the severity and seriousness of the statement where people are saying, I have a

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

son, Nay, it is the greatest blasphemy.

00:25:45--> 00:25:52

And for this reason, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Let me read the verse actually, that I've already translated, that God was

00:25:54--> 00:25:58

in water shot out of the water here, Oh,

00:26:08--> 00:26:08

man.

00:26:12--> 00:26:53

How can the Most Merciful have a son lay it is impossible. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in another place in the Quran, even the Christians themselves are in doubt. They are in doubt they have no solid knowledge if you are to speak to them, they will not be able to confirm without any doubt whatsoever that God has a son stofer Allah, may Allah subhanahu Allah protect us. So Jesus May peace be upon him was a messenger, he was granted the Bible in its original pristine form. And that book, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to read the Quran to understand it and to put it into practice because the Quran is the only book that is not lost the other books unfortunately,

00:26:53--> 00:27:13

as we know, the original form of those books are lost. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So in Surah, Maria, also Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the other prophets and he makes mentioned for example of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, the discussion that he had with his father, and thereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while Heaven

00:27:15--> 00:27:15

is

00:27:18--> 00:27:29

even him we granted him offspring. It started with Zachary Allah is Allah was granted offspring. Maria Maria Salatu was Salam Granta the child through a miracle. That was Isa Ali Salam

00:27:31--> 00:27:58

is speaking about Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa salam. O Allah says is Huck, who is Isaac May peace be upon him. And after Isaac and his heart and his Salam Yaqoob Jacob May peace be upon him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of makes mention of all these, and Allah says, those are the progenies that we have chosen. Look what he says. He says as for Moses and Musa alayhis salaam, WA haben Allahu mattina.

00:28:02--> 00:28:12

We gave him a family member who was a strong, strong sister who helped him in a very, very huge way. Allah says that we granted him as a gift through our mercy.

00:28:14--> 00:28:55

And Allah subhanho wa Taala gives all of us through His mercy as gifts. Do we really treat our children and family members as gifts through the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala or at times, we don't even know how to speak to them. Even if we have a problem, which is quite normal. The loser is the one who does not go up and solve it. That is the person really, who is foolish, but the one who isn't intelligent will understand that he must solve his problems especially when it comes to family relations. What are the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes mentioned in many, many a hadith of maintaining family relations and the importance of it may Allah subhanho wa Taala make a

00:28:55--> 00:29:20

strong regarding is Marie Lally Salatu, wa salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention that he too is from the progeny of Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, and he was very truthful so much so that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was granted to Izmaylov la salaatu wa Salaam, offspring, and he is a descendant of his Milan. Salatu was Salam. That was the gift and Allah says, Allah.

00:29:22--> 00:29:29

Allahu la mina Nabina Mussolini at

00:29:30--> 00:29:48

from amongst the children of Adam, these prophets are the ones who we have chosen and we have raised them above everyone. The question I have is, look at the difficulties every single Chosen One has gone through. And today we have a small problem and we think Allah has let us down.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

When it is a sign of having been chosen by Allah when you are going through difficulties, the Hadees loud and clear in Allah either I have been

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

with Danny patella, it is only when Allah loves someone that he tests them with greater and greater tests so that they can have the opportunity of passing the test and earning Jenna with us. We complain with the NBA, they had more difficult problems, they never complained. They turned to Allah. This is where we have lost the path. This is where we are losing it. We are not content with what decisions Allah has granted for us in our lives. This is why one of the solid Pillars of Islam is while he was shall remain Allahu taala no religion teaches us to surrender to fake good and bad that is all from our Creator. Islam does it in order to save us from depression from anxiety from

00:30:43--> 00:31:24

different sources of tension and so on in our minds, if your Eman intact D is solid inshallah you will always be content. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who are content. The message I had thrown here is if the prophets of Allah who were chosen by Allah have gone through 100 1000 times more than anything we've ever gone through, and yet they were chosen. What about us? When we go through five things in our lives, we lose hope in the mercy of Allah, Allah azza wa jal, as I said, that is where we need to rethink our stand. And we need to reposition ourselves so that we can actually begin to walk in the right direction. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes

00:31:24--> 00:31:33

mention also of the fact that there were people who left their Salah after these ambia came and order people to read their Salah. Allah says, Allah.

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

Allah Allah, Allah Azza wa Shahar chief so

00:31:41--> 00:32:24

they were then people who came who left their Salah, and they followed their desires. These two issues Allah says, that is what will result in them being cast into Hellfire, except those who engaged in Toba. May Allah make us from amongst those who engage in Toba. Allah says For those who engage in Toba, we have prepared Jenna but for those who leave salah and follow their whims and fancies, there is a very, very dangerous future awaiting them in the dunya as well as the ashira. For this reason, I call on myself and yourselves, let us become regular with our Salah for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala the problems of the Muslim Ummah on the globe will only be solved if

00:32:24--> 00:33:07

ourselves we tend to do and each one of us becomes conscious of his or her own deeds, especially Salah, believe me, there are people of the book who know that the day they need to fear is the day that the Muslims have turned to the masjid in Salah, the day the massages are four four. And for Asia and for other prayers, that is the day they need to fear and for that reason, you know the contamination that exists in the surroundings that really is drawing our children away from Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us on the on the straight path. He says in the Quran. If you are not going to put your head on the ground for me, I do not need it, others will do it. willingly.

00:33:07--> 00:33:14

Allah Subhana Allah safeguard us, when we put our head on the ground, it is our benefit, it is not the benefit of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:33:16--> 00:34:01

And then we have mentioned of the bridge over jahannam, which every single person has to cross on the day of the AMA, every one has to cross it jahannam will have a little bridge over it known as a syrup, that bridge will be hairlike it will be a very, very thin bridge and every single one of us has to cross it. Some may not be able to cross it because of their misdeeds. They may be cut by the sharpness of that bridge, and they may drop into jahannam Allah says everyone's test is that they have to pass that bridge. May Allah make it so easy for us to cross. Those who are pious, those who have been chosen by Allah will cross like lightning, listen to what Allah says. While

00:34:15--> 00:34:21

Vani Mina v Gz. Every single one of you will come to it.

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

That is a promise that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made then Allah says we will save those who were conscious of our existence and presence in the dunya we will save them and the others will drop into Johanna May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. May we be from amongst those really and truly who can cross that and get to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will be seated on the pond and Subhana Allah He will be waiting for us recognizing us with the shining of the organs of the body that are washed during Whoo. And for that reason, let's make Hulu correctly. Let's take our time to make Hulu

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

messenger of Allah Mohammed May peace be upon him will recognize us by the shining and the new of the places that we have been watching throughout the day when we make Hulu for that reason, let us make Hulu correctly as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of the AMA.
