nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy to be no woman to be signing Eli ahmedinejad All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless all his wives as well as his family members, his companions. May He bless every single one of us, and may He bless our offspring and those who come up to the date of pm are from them. May Allah keep them steadfast on this Deen and May He grant us every form of goodness on our beloved brothers and sisters.
Yesterday we spoke about a great prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Prophet salaallah alayhi salatu salam, and we heard the powerful story of the Queen of Sheba. And how Allah subhanho wa Taala says the power that was granted to Suleiman alayhi salatu wa sallam was so great, that it eclipsed everything that this woman had had, although she was a king, who was ruling a very big army at the time. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us realize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala For indeed if we have the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala There is nothing more that we need in our lives. This evening inshallah we will go through a little bit more of the same story in Sharma The
first question that arises Many people believe that Suleiman and a Salam married bill keys, or the Queen of Sheba, that is just one narration that has come to us also from the rewired from the Israel Elliott, the Hebrew narrations again, and other narrations make mentioned that she married a different man altogether from amongst the people of Suleiman. And some narrations even say that the progeny of this queen is in Abyssinia, which is today if you're Ethiopian region. We don't know we cannot learn to suddenly call an academy buoy neither believe it nor do we belie it. We hold it and we say it's actually none of our business what exactly happened, and we will not be questioned about
it on the day of the AMA as to who she married and what exactly happened. What we will be questioned about is our own lives and what we did when it comes to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how we spend our lives. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about another gift of an of Sulaiman Allahu salatu wa sallam.
He was so powerful, we had made mentioned that he had the power to subject all the gym kind of the time and he did it. And he used them in many different ways, some of them to build and to build what all sorts of items to build buildings to make huge cauldrons and pots, and to do so many other things to build places of worship. And so a man and a salon when he stood with his stick, they were frightened. They were scared of him. What did he do? He gathered all the books of magic, all the books of magic, because magic was very rife. At the time, people were engaging in the worship of the devil, people were worshiping the gym kind. So the man alehissalaam got hold of the gym kind,
subjected them to his command, gathered all the books of magic, and where was the safest place to put all these books under his throne. So he placed them under his throne, he would be seated. Nobody touched these books in the magic stocks, magic stocks.
Now when that happened, there was a problem because they saw Suleiman alaihe salam instructor
The wind as we mentioned yesterday, it would move so fast. A man's journey covered in the morning. another man's journey covered in the afternoon solely because the wind begins to blow. It lifts you off, and it takes you away. Not like the tornadoes of today, may Allah protect us where they cause damage. This would actually take you very safely by the instruction of Sulaiman AlLahi salatu wa sallam. So they began to accuse him of magic. And they started saying, no, this man, he took all these books, he's taken everything. He's got control of the jinn. And he is the magician. He is the big magician, and he is now displaying all his authority and his power. Imagine he got the Palace of
Bill keys within a split second, to be shifted from Sheba all the way to where he was in tact, and he renovated it within split seconds, and he built another palace next to it within split seconds. Amazing. So when they started blaming him, Allah subhanho wa Taala clarifies his name in the Quran, Alma Kapha Suleiman who Allah
clean aka fou. De moonen says See, Suleiman did not disbelief was alarming did not disbelief. Anyone who engages in magic or who seeks magical
meaning something magical from someone. They have lost their belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala and entered into the fold of coffee. they've entered into the fold of this belief. So Allah is saying Suleiman did not disbelief but the devils this believed the Shia theme, this belief, they were the ones who were teaching people magic. And now there was a question, well, what is the difference between a miracle of unabie and magic? People didn't know because they only knew now one thing. So Allah subhanho wa Taala sent to angels with a certain idea what was the idea? You people really want to know what is the difference between magic and the miracle of an abbey, we will show you you've
seen the miracles out there. Now we will show you what magic is all about, on condition that you consider it a test from Allah and you don't engage in it.
So Allah says,
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah cainy be Babylon
nimmanhaemin hadn't had
they came down with magic, two angels, who wrote and marut were in a place called Babel or Babylon. And the reason they had to teach a few people what it was all about was so that they could distinguish between the miracle of a Nabhi and the magic of magicians, when they were taught, they knew very well, that this is magic, and what Sulaiman alehissalaam has come with is the miracle of an OB. Just like before, then, if you take a look at Musa alayhis salam, he was in a beam, he had medical with him, and doing the magicians who are masters of magic came when they laid or when they threw their ropes and their sticks. They knew immediately upon seeing what Musa alayhis salam came
with, that what we did is magic. And what he did is a miracle. They immediately fell prostrate, because they were masters at the game, and they knew what this man is playing is not this game. It is actually a miracle. It's not even a game.
So this Allah subhanho wa Taala taught the people many people don't know why did Houghton models come down? They came down to teach the people something that they wanted to know to be able to distinguish between two matters, like it is said are of two. Key woman Lamia, artificial, yeah, coffee, a person sometimes gets to know what evil things are all about, so that he can protect himself from evil.
And if you don't know what evil is all about, you might fall straight into it. So sometimes it's important for us to know what happens, for example, the wrong things that are there. Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us about that which is wrong. And he clarifies it and makes it clear and sometimes in quite a bit of detail, so that we know not to burn our fingers. But if we did not want to learn that which was wrong, in order to stay away from it, how would we be able to stay away from it? May Allah Subhana Allah grant us understanding.
So when these people came down, sadly, when they taught a few people this magic, everyone they taught, they told them something look, we are teaching it to you as a test. So do not disbelieve by using this to cast magical spells upon people. Don't use it Param. If you do that, you will lose your Eman. You will enter the fold of gopher and disbelief now later
On these people started using this magic why, when they became jealous of one another, and they seen a married couple very happily, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fire talamona mean oh mama, you
know he was oj, they started practicing what they were taught
how to differentiate how to split between a husband and a wife. So the magic, one of the first magical spells that people cast very easily is to split husband and wife. So you find this one turns that in that direction, that one turns in the other direction because of a spell that has been cast. This is why it's important every morning, every evening, we read ayatul kursi we read the last three surah of the Quran so that we are protected by Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the day, and in the evening, we will read it so that we are protected throughout the night. It's very important that we read this, this is the solution. And these are the antibiotics against the bacteria known as the
devil and the spells that he casts. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while
they are indeed learning that which does not help them in any way, in fact, it harms them and they are teaching it and learning it so Mahanama so we need to know anyone who is learning magic is doing something that is going to harm them. It's not beneficial. Anyone who is practicing it or teaching it to others, it's harmful. It is not beneficial. Allah says wama ba ba Minami mean had in a lovely evening.
They will not be able to harm anybody except by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala so when you read you're more aware that we that meaning the verses of protection, there is another verse.
To be coming Hamza Tisha pain will
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told to say the following prayer, and we too should be uttering the same words say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my rob my maker. Protect me. I seek your protection from the whispers of the devil and I seek your protection from them even coming close to me. This is also a two hour we should be reading every morning every evening several times during the day may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the devil. And Allah says Allah de la Mola, Manish De La Romana moving to mean holla Ko, they knew that what they are purchasing the deal that they are making, will render him in such a condition in the era that they won't have any
portion left for him in the future. So in the life after death, there is nothing remaining for the person who wants to engage in magic and cast spells and go and visit witches. And for those who are the witches in the sangomas in the Ganga, or whatever you'd like to call them of today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us How is it done? A person needs to appease the devils. If you take a look at Babylon up to this day. It is the headquarters of magic. They are people whether they belong to the Illuminati, or whether they belong to the Freemasons part of the same thing, who worship the devil completely, and the devil tells them we will give you two things, power and Kingdom together
with everlasting life. And this is the same promise that he believes made to Adam our forefathers, meaning the first human being the same promise when he told him eat from the forbidden fruit. He said two things. What is it?
called de la Vela Should I show you the tree that if you eat from its root, you will live forever, which means you will be illuminated as they call themselves now the Illuminati, Allah protect us. And not only that, you will have authority and kingdom and you will have so much control and you will have the power and all the ownership.
And that's what people want to this day. If someone told you look, I can make you rich in five minutes. May Allah make us from those who don't tend towards this. There's no quick money. There's no quick money if it comes quick it goes quick. And if it comes quick in a wrong manner, it will go with a lot of regrets. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our shortcomings May he make us from those who earn halal sustenance. So this is what shavon began to teach the people. And this is why I said the seeds of magic is in one of two places. You find it in Egypt where the pyramids are because there was a lot of magic at the time of Pharaoh and he depended on the magicians and he himself
considered himself a god so they worship Him and so you have the annual festivals at the pyramids to this day where all the pop stars and everyone who worships the devil go there once per year and they continue and believe me there are so many people who are engaged in this devil worshipping because it makes them feel strong, feel powerful. And the day Allah punishment comes shaitaan runs away that's in the Quran. When a fan runs away, the day Allah Subhana
metallus punishment comes, the second seat of magic is Babylon. To this day, there are people who visit there are people who sacrifice what shaytan does, he asks a person to do something very dirty. Bring me the I have an eight year old young girl, which is green, and slightly, maybe blue. So now this man goes and commit murder. When he commits murder, he feels the strength. And he really feels powerful and shavon will give him some information, not of the unseen, but some information of the past because you know, we learned at the beginning of this month about the Kareem when we spoke about shavon at the time of sheath and insulin, and we spoke about how he invented all the devils
meaning he invented all the evil ways and how he chose the past to distract men. Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches this to us. So for a shavon or a gym to tell us what happened in the past is not difficult, but they will tell you one truth and 99 false. So they blame the people of your family for having done magic on you yet they themselves are pinching a nerve. So what will happen is the gene knows in your body exactly which nerve is pinched, he will go in he knows he will find out when he comes out. He says okay, you need to bring me the liver of a 10 year old boy. So now you find people starting to mutilate, kill murder take an organ, they call it a ritual murder. And when they
go and sacrifice, they feel better they walk up the nerve is unfinished. Why shaitan did it for them, he unpinch it. But medicine couldn't do that. This is why we said if a person wants to worship the devil, you will see results. Definitely. Even in Christianity and Judaism. They are no immediate miracles you need to pray to God If anyone comes to you with a miracle where they put their hand on your head. You hear them uttering mumbo jumbo, they call it dialects, languages. They utter the words worshipping the devil. They utter words that they themselves don't understand sometimes, and the problem is solved. You find the person opening their eyes after they were blind of 20 years. And
people say hallelujah stokfella not knowing it's the worshipping of the devil, the devil himself he will solve your problem but you won't get very far. Because when you get to your Lord, He will tell you Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa Taala shavon cobian mo in la vida Kumar will have
to come up left to come on that day. shapen will say look, I promised you something which was false. And Allah promised you a true promise but you decided to come towards me one can rely
our token festival to only shape and says I have no authority over you. I just called you towards something that was a little bit desirous to your last and to what you wanted inside and you suddenly ran towards me leaving your Creator on one side and check on says today in a very
shape any say on this day. I am free from you. In fact, I fear the Lord of the world, but I just wanted to prove a point to you.
So let us never fall prey the person is ill and sick, the correct Islamic way those who believe in God. Keep praying and never lose hope continue praying let us take a look at Sulaiman and a Salam we will see in a few moments in sha Allah. So this is the issue of magic Allah subhanho wa Taala says
while aka de la Mola, Manisha Humala, bluefin tuna t mean holla for
what an even way of selling themselves, they sold themselves to the devil. As I said a few days ago, there are people, whether they belong to the Freemason group, or any other group who believe we can come up one day with technology or with some form of knowledge that will result in men being given life to once again. So men then says, until my money is depleted, keep me frozen in X, Y, and Zed mortuary and they are frozen on the globe right now for many years, thinking that one day a time will come when people will be resurrecting or people will be giving life again to dead bodies. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us the understanding. It beats us really sometimes when you sit and ponder
over how weak men is, even if they have another life, then what will happen? They still going to come to an end, and that's not going to happen but for argument's sake, may Allah subhanho wa Taala open our door. So shavon says, I'd like you to do for me a devilish deed. People urinate on revelation. People then use the words of revelation to cleanse themselves after stopped using the toilet. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection they are after they get this power and their face changes all of them.
worship the devil, their faces begin to become extremely sharp featured, very scary with a double eyes look in their eyes. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that those are the devil worshipers and there are signs that you will see in them when they speak no spirituality in the face. Nothing at all people who are behind wealth and behind or authority and that is the only thing they have no sense of justice. They don't want any justice. They only want to serve their own cause our interests, if it is in our interests, we will do something, if it is not we will let them die. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So this is the devil and these are those who follow the devil.
And this is why King Solomon's Mines are spoken about and this is why the Temple of Solomon is spoken about Allah peace be upon Sulaiman, his intention was brilliant. He In fact, abandoned everything, but he had all the books under his throne.
They were there. And when Houghton Maru came and taught these people all these items, they want them if you engage in this you will lose your faith in the in the Lord of the worlds May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Very important point to be made mention of Sulaiman alayhis salam, once he was inspecting his horses, how many powerful horses he had the best of the time. He used to use them in battle. And as he's inspecting them, the historians say they were almost 20,000 horses, and in the afternoon, he's walking and suddenly the sunset and he had forgotten the prayer. Afternoon prayer. So Allah makes mention of it in the Quran, is earlier by Les Villa Sheila Safina to God for Carla in
Arabic be hot data wallet
powerful this. Allah says when he lost the prayer because he was inspecting his horses, so many horses, he immediately realized that Yeah, Allah, I have made a mistake here I've given preference to these horses over your remembrance, and it's made me forget your remembrance. What happened? He was then
stroking the horses, one after the other, at the leg and on the neck. Why was he doing that? Because he knew, firstly, he could communicate with the horses. Secondly, he would be able to tell the one that is fit to take part in the battle and the one that is not by the neck and by the legs. And to this day, a healthy horse is looked at by the way it holds its neck and by its legs and how it holds the leg and how it stands with the legs together when it is told to do that. These are the trained horses
as though they can understand every movement of yours as though the trainer can speak to the horse. That is how obedient horses are. The same applies to other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala that which Allah has granted us a little bit of understanding of their nature and so on. So thereafter Allah says we tested Suleiman, voila, tada fatahna Suleiman, we tested Sulaiman and he said, Ah, I mentioned yesterday, the narration of 700 women is all fabricated, we don't want to mention it, it is blasphemous, how Allah tested Suleiman by making him sick, he was ill. Now all those who say he was a magician, what happened to the magic? This was a test. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says he was
as though just a dead body on the throne on the throne yet, he was the ruler of so much more than anyone before him more than anyone after him. Because he had control over not only humankind, but far more than that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
he thereafter he sought forgiveness and he came back to us in the sense that he sought a lot of forgiveness when he was striking when he was stroking the horses he was making his state of art together with that yeah Allah forgive me Forgive me for what for the fact that I had missed this afternoon prayer.
When one does exactly what type of prayer was prescribed in this area but with us, sometimes we are busy. Let's start from the children with a computer game time for Salah comes about when that is for children the example let's get to us business deal lucrative Mashallah you need to close shop time for Joomla say no, no, no, just hang on few minutes and you run for Juma and we're late. We're not talking of the afternoon prayer. We talking of jumo there are people who arrive late every friday every friday they come late. Why May Allah grant us the ability to change I want to pause for a moment and tell you every Friday
There is a competition marwaha visa
powerful hadith of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever comes in the first hour, as though he has sacrificed a camel for the sake of Allah. Whoever comes next in the next hour, as though he has sacrificed a slightly smaller animal, and thereafter the one who has sacrificed a smaller animal and so on. And the angels is
it waka Fatima aka to Alibaba Miss God yet to buena.
Dickey, the Hadith says when it is a Friday the Mullah standing at the door writing the names who came first who came second, who came third who came forth until the Imam gets up when he gets up, they closed their books, and they come and sit to listen.
Can't we come first one Friday. Can't our name be written in the book at least some Fridays? Every Friday, May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. This is what we also learn so a man Allah He said I've missed one prayer, and it affected him. And thereafter Allah tested him and he became sick and ill and he continued, praising Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala cured him. Now a very interesting story at the end. In fact, Suleiman alayhis salam built
a temple. What did he do in Jerusalem, he rebuilt mosquito Aqsa which was built before him by jacoba salatu wa sallam, the prophet Jacob. And right next to it, he built a temple where he used to worship
and it is reported that the type of building and how long it took is amazing and the forces that were used to make that temple something impossible for ordinary human beings to achieve. And over time, when the armies used to fight Jerusalem, they used to first attack the temple, because it had treasures it had so much in it. And this is why over the years, the temple where is it? It is reported that that taboo the Ark of the Covenant was also kept there. To this day. There are obviously two narrations one is his temple was inside what is known as masjidul Aqsa and two is just outside mosquito Luxor. So somewhere there definitely, to this day.
There are people who are digging right around mosquito outside and underneath it, what is their idea? They want to find this foundation of the temple of Suleiman and they are saying we were looking for the Ark of the Covenant, and in the process, they are destroying the masjid. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the Haram and Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us in our brethren across the globe. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect those who are oppressed, and may He deal with the oppressors, he either guide them to goodness, and if he knows they are not going to be guided, then he takes care of them in a way he knows best they deserve. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
that. And here there is a very, very interesting point. So a man Allah His salam, there was a very interesting rumor that spread at the time that the jinn they know the unseen.
The jinn know the unseen, and Allah wanted to prove, forget about the unseen. They don't even know what is in front of them attacks. How did Allah prove that Suleiman alayhis salam used to stand with his stick, they were frightened. When he was there, they work like clockwork. One day as he was standing with his stick, just like that, the angel of death came, and Alhamdulillah he passed away, his soul was taken, and it was gone to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he was still standing with a stick and his eyes open.
A day past two days past the time passed, some a long time passed and all the jinn were working very, very hard in front of him building something that he had wanted. There are different durations as to what exactly it was, but that's besides the point at the moment. And he is standing and Allah mentions this in the Quran.
Mandala Humala monkey in
battle not only that kuno Musetta when he passed away, when a man in that position with his stick, nothing led them to know that he died except the little end that started eating the stick, the stick was wooden, the end started eating the stick. When the end he began to eat the stick from the bottle as it came up at a certain point after some time,
the stick broke when the stick broke. Suleiman alehissalaam who was balanced on it as a dead man dropped.
So Allah says Phantom sobre
la moon and
when he felt that
It was now known to everybody that had the gym known the unseen, they would not have been punishing themselves by working so tirelessly
in front of him yet he wasn't even there.
Subhan Allah so this was the death of Suleiman Alayhi Salam mentioned in the Quran, that when he died, Allah subhanho wa Taala made it a great sign for humanity at large and for the gym kind as well. That look oh God, never mind you know, the you don't know the unseen, but worse than that, something right in front of you. The man is dead, we don't even know is dead for a long, long time. Imagine the type of fear and all that they had for Sulaiman AlLahi salatu wa sallam, yet he was very, very humble. Yesterday, we saw how he spoke to the end. He spoke to the hoopoe bird, he spoke to all his people, he spoke to the Queen of Sheba with utmost respect, yet he had more than anybody
You know, we say a click of the finger, no, a blink of the eye, that was a man and his salatu salam, and the Quran says that. Now, after that, inshallah we now move on to some of the other ambia that are mentioned in the Quran, there are some ilias alayhis Salam ilias, the profit alias May peace be upon him, the prophet and yes, some know him as Alicia May Allah subhanho wa Taala his peace be upon him, and the Prophet doodle keeping.
These Allah subhanho wa Taala does not mention much detail about only the Prophet ilias Allah says in one place a little bit of detail. So in the other places only a name is mentioned, and a word of praise that they were
last year meaning they were good people, they were the best of the lot and so on, as we said, whenever we hear and eration that is against the dignity and respect accorded to a nubby of Allah subhanho wa Taala By Allah, we should throw the narration out because Allah says these people were chosen, they were chosen. So if the prophets were bad, the people would have been able to justify their wrongdoings to say, look, you also a sinner, what are you telling us? So this is why we need to be careful of some of these narrations that are seeping in from others. May Allah protect us?
Allah says in colonic tomini, Allah tunku ilias was from amongst those who were sent, he was unhappy when he told his people, won't you fear Allah subhanho wa Taala? Was the crime.
Scene a lot of
money. How can you wish if this idol known as bad, and you leaving the creator of everything, the most beautiful creator of everything, the best of creators in the sense that he is the one who makes from nothing. we've explained the difference between when people say I created this, they did not create anything, they only transformed the creation of Allah from one to another. And they had wood now they have a che, they had metal. Now they've got a motor vehicle that's not creation. Creation is when you say B, and suddenly it's in front of you. This is creation. So as Ali Salaam is telling his people, how can you worship all these items, and this main idol that you're worshiping, and
you're leaving, the one who's the maker, the creator, the Supreme creator, Allah, Who is my Creator, and yours, my Rob and yours and the and the rub of your forefathers, for caribou fell in
Allah subhanho wa Taala says they belied him. So what happened to them, they were punished, the punishment was bought brought forward, and they were made present to where the punishment was, they were punished. We don't know more about this prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now we move on to a very famous Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala, whom his birth and all the details of his young life are not mentioned in the Quran. Remember, we are trying to derive lessons of the stories of the prophets or from the stories of the prophets in the Quran.
The Prophet Zakaria he was a prophet and at his time, the one who used to leave the press was a man very pious, what we what we would call today the Imam of the shape. He was a very, very pious man known as Mr. Emraan was related to Zakaria, how they were married to two sisters. So zecharia alayhi salam, and
the two of them were related in that way. And they had a link and the connection, both of them did not have children, both of them, their wives could not bear.
And one day the wife of imraan she used to pray these were very pious people, very, very pious people, the wife of Iran. He she used to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala never losing hope it is reported that way.
He saw a bird giving a little bit of food, bringing some food and flying in to feed the little Chiclets. And when the bird put the food into the beak of its little baby,
and the wind blew, it took its wing and it covered its own baby. And she felt the desire to have a child at that age. She said, Yeah, Allah grant me a child. Yeah, Allah, we are serving you. This is my husband. He is leading the people in prayer. And so on Yama bless us with some goodness and she continued praying and Allah subhanho wa Taala responded her call, but she had made a promise. Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, if we call it ma 20 ma not be in Nina de voto, la cama de la Tony Maha Laura
min me in naka de semi onlinee remember the time when the wife of Emraan had conceived she then made a pledge to us to say yeah Allah I am dedicating the child who is in my womb for your service completely. The child will not be doing anything else besides your service serving this house of yours, serving this place of worship and totally for your service dedicated and this is what I have promised, you are the one who has heard and you are all knowing
this is how fires they will Mashallah when we have children we make dua Allah keep them pious Allah make them the coolness of your eyes Allah make them inshallah pious people, the champions of the deen, but the others who don't have belief, as soon as the child is born, they bring a football, they put it here real soon as the child is born, they have a tennis racket. There you are, on a golf stick, Allah protect us. I hope that's not the same goldstick used to break the windows of the vehicle.
May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us goodness. So it's important for us to learn a lesson. Allah accept it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala heard this quote, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says
when she gave birth, she said, Oh my god, I have given birth to a female child.
And Allah knew best, Allah already knew more than anyone else, what she was going to give birth to, and the fact that she had given birth to a female child, while he says Rocco.
lysing and the female is not like a male. Now there is a verse of the Quran What does it mean? Let us understand this issue of equality in Islam. In Islam, men and women are totally equal when it comes to their access to their job and they're making. A man becomes pious, a woman becomes pious, a man achieves rewards a woman achieves rewards a man, the sins will be held against him. The same applies to a woman, a man has access to Allah, a woman has access to Allah, everything there spiritually Subhana Allah, the access to the Creator is equal. But Allah is telling us that physically, we have created you differently. And emotionally, we have created you differently. And
this is why sometimes when people say no Islam treats a woman unfairly, they don't realize and understand when Allah made something, Allah has created something in a different way. And Allah has created certain responsibilities for one that the other cannot have, whether they like it or not. So when it comes to pregnancy, childbearing, breastfeeding and so on, a man cannot do it, whether he likes it or not, it's not his job. And this is why a woman can achieve closeness to Allah through certain acts of worship that a man cannot. One of them is childbearing. The other is she gives up a whole home and everything when she gets married, Allah has made her such that she can adjust better
than a man when it comes to an environment she's created in that way. And so many other acts of worship she can engage in if a woman dies whilst bearing a child or was giving birth or in the sickness Connect connected to the women's issues. Allah subhanho wa Taala grants a paradise on condition that she was patient, can a man engage in those acts of worship? The answer is no. And Allah says we've given men some authority as well. So in certain ways, a woman is higher than a man. And in certain ways a man is higher than a woman. And in the other ways, they are all equal. What is so difficult about understanding this? Why do we still want to defy it? And this is why I tell
people who say no, no, no, no, we are absolutely equal. I say look, it depends what you're looking at. And it depends how in what context you
Speaking Why do we have Mr. And Mrs. Why do you have the extra s? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding its effect.
Why do we have really? Why do we have to say this is male and female? Let's just say male for everyone, this is a male and this is another male Hello? Would we would that happen? So common logic tells us we are different. Why then do we want to shove down the throats of the people? No, we are equal in every way. The problem is when we say equality, sometimes you find some males using it to oppress females This is where they are wrong. And today you find women calling males names and fighting for gender equality in order to rise above the men. So it is reverse. May Allah protect us. So then, in a few years time we will be fighting for our eyes. Remember, male is ma l IE a female
has an Effie over and above that, Mr. Is Mr. A female has an S after that. So it's much more than we what we have. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding.
So even in letters, they are higher than us.
Obviously, that's on a lighter note, don't hold it against me.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah is a
man is not like a woman. She had said, I would like this channel to be dedicated to the monastery or to this place of worship and so on. But now we have a problem. What is the problem? It is a female child but anyway, we're in need some money to harmonium. This mother is saying, the wife of Milan she's saying, I have given her the name Maria Mary, who was this Mary, the mother of Jesus May peace be upon him. She was born. And this is what her mother had said. Subhan Allah was nice. To her mama.
Amina chiffonier Raji, I have given her the name Maria. And yeah Allah I seek your protection for her, and for her progeny, for her offspring to come from shaytani.
So in the region in Sahih, Muslim It is reported that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says, When a child is born, shaitaan comes in poke, the child is jealous. So the child cries. So this is the interpretation religiously, of why the child cries as soon as they're born, obviously, from a medical aspect, there are other reasons the lungs inflate, and everything else happens and so on. But the child is picked, they will do only to whom that did not happen to one was Mary and one was Jesus. Maria alayhis salam May peace be upon her. And the other one was Isa Allah is Allah May peace be upon him, because the mother had already asked Allah to protect them from shaitan. And Allah gave
them that particular drug said Okay, there you are protected from trademark.
Now what had happened?
There was a problem as she was born, they took her to this place of worship, and they wanted to fulfill the promise, she wanted to fulfill the promise for the child. There was a problem in that while she was pregnant, the father passed away who was the father, a man, the shape, the great shape, he passed away when he passed away and the child was born an orphan so Maria was an orphan, Mary, may peace be upon her.
There was a debate who should take care of this child.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam woman, tala de him, if you
you were not there, when they had this debate, and they drew lots as to who should look after this child Miriam, who should bring her up under whose care so the priests and the others the religious people, and the pious they said, No, we all want each one was claiming the right and zecharia alehissalaam who is the Navy he said, Look, I am her uncle, my wife and her mother are sisters. As an uncle as an OB, it is my right they said no, What gives you the right let us grow lots.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, You are Mohammed salatu salam were not there when they were drawing the lots. But anyway, we've told it to you that this is what they drew lots.
What happened? They drew they took their pins, and it is reported to three different nations. But the Quran does say they drew lots with a pin with pins. Each one took their pen and put their pen and they had a little child come to pick a pin and the child pick the pin of the career. And he said and they said no, we got to try again. So they took their pins, put it into a little wooden
A pencil case sort of a thing. And they said we putting it in the stream, any one of these pins that flow against the stream against the flow of the water, that will be the person. So only the carry Allah is allowed started flowing the other way the rest were going down. There's a second sign. They said no, now let's do it for the last time these whoever's flows with the stream
will have the chance. That didn't really make sense because all of them were supposed to flow. So Allah made it such that everyone else's float against the stream, and this one flew flowed with him.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, a fella has a carry Yeah, it was a carrier who took her and looked after. There was something strange. They had kept her as she was growing up in the room known as a mirage is a little corner of wishes. kilometer Allah, Allah has a carrion mihaylova.
every time Zachary Ali Salam went there, she was engaged always in acts of worship in remembrance from a very, very young age. And she used to clean and she used to keep the place tidy. And she was a person who was dedicated for the service of this place of worship. Very, very pious woman, woman of the highest levels, but she was still a young girl. Every time Zachary Ali Salaam went, he would find something amazing. She had food, fruit that was not from the season they were in. So the fruit of summer was found with her in winter, as fresh as ever. And the fruit in winter was found with her in summer, as fresh as ever. So he says, I'm not lucky.
Where did you get this from? She says, Who am in the law? I got it from Allah. In Allah risako me.
Allah give sustenance to whomsoever He wishes. Without account. Allah doesn't take into account that it is summer and it is winter. He wants he can give you anything. Now these were miracles that were happening at the time. So So carry on a solemn so it he was the only one who noticed. And he told himself so Pamela. I want to draw an example here. This is the qudra and the power of Allah. This little young girl is telling me Allah can give whatever he wants. I know that I'm a newbie, but if Allah can give off season fruit,
then surely I'm an old man, I don't have any children. I am equivalent to offseason when it comes to children. Allah can give me children.
That's exactly what he thought. He says My wife is barren. She was better. She could not bear children. But he says that would be equivalent to being off season but still unlucky and give her child so he raised his hands. Allah says una Liga de aza carry.
at that juncture, Zakaria raised his hands and he says,
Call on behalf le
cadeau de Paiva Naka Sammy, oh,
Allah grant me a pious offspring. Yala. You are the one who can hear my prayer you are hearing me at that juncture. In Surah Maryam there's a whole surah named after this child Mary. There is no chapter of the Bible named after Mary May peace be upon him but the Quran has an entire chapter named after Mary May peace be upon her May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless her every single week.
So, this men in suits Miriam Allah says
beaker zecharia is not out of bamboo, NIDA and Javi.
Allah starts the surah powerful letters, only he knows the meaning of those letters. Then he says, Remember the mercy of Allah upon his slave? Zakaria when he called out to his robber, he called out with humbleness, humility, silence and between him and Allah he called out What did he say?
Call me in he was wahana love Moomin me. Oh my love My bones are now we wish that sushi and my hair is gray will
be shocking. But I will never lose hope in you. I will continue praying to you. My prayer will never be wasted.
May Allah grant children to those who don't have offspring.
Remember, never lose hope. Look at Zachary.
He says Yala, I'm not old. When one does his bones, when are we? He says, My hair is great. I'm not going to lose hope. Yeah Allah Subhana Allah He says, He Tony
mirabilia Allah grant me a child who will inherit me. And he will be an heir of the family of Jacob, and in what prophets did not inherit or did not leave behind wealth for someone to inherit, but the inheritance being spoken about his prophethood here and the service to Allah Yama, I want to make a child who can continue my lineage and this goodness and the family of Jacob he can follow the footsteps of the Prophet Jacob May peace be upon him.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Yes, Zakaria, we called out to him was a career. In
we are giving you good news of a child that your wife shall conceive and bear. And we have named him yah, yah, or john in the English language. We have given him that name. Nobody before him has ever had that name. Allah says, and no one will be similar to him in certain qualities. He had some qualities which he was the only one who had those qualities. so amazingly, Allah subhanho wa Taala is speaking about yahia and Allah named him Look at this, Allah named him. Yeah, the name was given by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The name john Yahya. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the beauty, I still find the word the term the Arabic term is far more sweeter than the English term. Now Allah
grant has a deep understanding.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, this men, he was thankful to Allah.
But at the same time he was he needed to sign How can I go and tell my wife, okay, you're going to expect and you know you're expecting and so on. How can I say this and what will happen? I'm old.
He says Carla Mae Anika, cannoli Wallah? mukana t ma T and T ma
codevilla to me now give me an idea. Oh Allah, how can I have a child now? Now he's shocked. he's thankful but at the same time, he's shocked. He wants confirmation. Yama. How can I have a child now? You're a baby. How can I have a hula my little baby boy? You've already given the name and everything y'all how can I have this boy when my wife is better? And I am so old. Yeah, Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Carla Gallic Allahu Akbar, Allah says that is Allah subhanho wa Taala in another place in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says he told him that didn't recreate you before. This is how Allah creates Allah says B and it is.
In the Arabic language we say a mo binal Coffee when noon, the instruction of Allah is between a calf and the noon those two letters put together make an instruction, that is called the word of Allah. When Allah gives that word, things happen.
So here, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Zakaria says, cholera began Aya Allah give me a sign when I see that sign. I will know that now she has conceived. Carla, I can imagine Salah
was Becca kathira was a big Bella she will Ivanka. He says Oh Allah.
In fact, Allah says, Oh zecharia your sign will be that they will come three days in which you will not be able to speak to people except through science.
Then, praise Allah. Engage in his remembrance. constantly be thankful of Allah subhanho wa Taala Zachary alehissalaam was very, very thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then as he went out
for horadada Tomi Minami hobby for our high in a sub beehoon bukata.
In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala This was I just read is he referring to Yeah. And he said, I'm later on, but we go back to Zakaria alayhis salam where Allah subhanho wa Taala says very clearly, the day came when he could not speak. And he knew this is the sign of Allah, He caught up. And he's addressing people with signs, alarms, and he had these signs and he's telling people to obey Allah and so on. And days later, the news was out of hand Allah His wife was expecting and she gave birth Subhana Allah to this messenger, a great messenger.
Known as yahia salatu salam. Now yahia Ali Salam
was in the body of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who was blessed with so many good qualities.
Allah says for hora de la comida mihaylova Hi
YAH YAH YAH YAH pueden kita Baba
Masami, Allah says we gave you
the book, and we told him hold fast to this Torah, the Torah was given, reiterated repeated to yahia la salatu salam, It is reported that he had memorized it, the Torah.
And he was sent to Israel. Remember, all these messages were sent to Ben who is right, they are the children of Jacob. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We gave him wisdom, knowledge from a very, very young age. I think now, Serbian, we gave him knowledge, we gave him wisdom, we gave him so much goodness. And Allah says, more than that, over and above that, we gave him something else. While Hannah
We made him so sympathetic to the others, not only to mankind, but even to the other creatures of Allah. He had such a deep love for not only human beings, but all the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that was from a very young age, he was different. Allah says, We granted him that wisdom from a young age. He was not like the other children who played and they lied, and they joke he was always a serious child. He was always interested in learning. He used to read the Torah he used to learn, he used to sit in prayer. He used to go to the place of worship and pray and so on.
And he knew his aunt, who was an aunt of his, in fact, we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a good memory Maria Malaya. salatu salam was his cousin.
was the child of zekeriya. And Maria, was the daughter of the sister of the wife of zekeriya. Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, This young man grew up imagine in the environment of goodness with pure people around him and so on. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, We gave him a hand and we gave him the sympathy and the love of the people and the rest of the creatures. And we also purified him in every way. And at the same time, we made him righteous, and Allah says, well, Bharani Wiley de we made him dutiful to his parents, while I'm Yakuza Baron now,
and he was not disobedient in any way. nor was he from amongst the arrogance, Jabbar here is referring to arrogance. He was not from amongst the arrogant, no was he from amongst those who was disobedient to his parents, he was a beautiful child. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he was a seed. He was a person,
a very, very well respected person was a household
name. He did not marry, he did not feel within himself the inclination to marry. So he was a person who was dedicated completely to the religion he didn't even marry. Allah uses the word household, a person who did not marry, and he was a prophet, and he was from amongst the righteous look at Allah praising the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam. It is reported that later on, when he used to call his people, he spoke to them with so much goodness, they loved him, all of them loved him. He used to make him cry. They used to sit and listen to him and they used to cry. Tears used to roll down their eyes when they
when they used to hear him relate from the Torah and they used to hear him reminding them of what Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down.
Now on the other hand, you have Zakaria Ali Salaam, the father of yahia he died, how he died, there are several narrations, one of the LED via make mention of the fact that he was murdered. And he was murdered by the king at the time. And Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all but there is mention of a verse that inshallah we will close with a little bit later on. When inshallah we reach the our by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about yahia
when he speaks about these people, he mentions the names of the Prophet Zakaria here. And then he speaks he says, in whom can you sorry?
Why are their own and
they use to make haste towards goodness
anything good. They used to rush towards any act of worship something to please Allah, they used to rush towards it. And they used to call out to us, having hope in our mercy and fearing our punishment as well. And they were from amongst the humble, those who are dedicated to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the pious, they will always concentrating in acts of worship, and they had fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. One day, the king of the time,
the king of the time, and his name is not mentioned, but
he heard that there is this man and he knew him quite well as well. Yeah, but now he had heard that people love him more than you, you are a king, you are the ruler, people dislike you. But there is one man, people are flocking to him in their 1000s. And they love him, they want to listen to him every time moment of the day and night.
Who is he His name is yahia. The King became jealous, who is this man, we need to see what he's doing so on. But in the interim, something else had happened, Allah decided something else would happen.
This King fell in love with his own nice, that means his own brother's daughter, and he wanted to marry her. And the idea was a messenger who used to get up and lecture regularly. And he used to remind people of what is permissible and what is prohibited without fearing. So he constantly said to people, that it is forbidden to do this, it is forbidden to do that. And people used to take heed. And they used to listen to him. Because of the way he spoke to them. And because they knew that this man loves us so passionately, he really wants to see that we are saved from the fire of Johanna.
So he said in one of his lectures, that it is forbidden to marry a nice and whoever does that he will be cursed by the Almighty. And it is a great sin, abomination, work of the devil and so on. And the king got to hear this he became very, very angry. Why is he lecturing? Why is he speaking on a controversial topic? Why he knows what is happening here? This is controversy we don't want to imagine, to this day you have people when you get up and say something correct. They call it controversial because they don't want to hear what is right. That is a sign of failure. As I always say it is the clutch of the devil, we'd better release it before we go too far. So yeah, he hit the
nail on the head. And he says Why are these people?
The king is now saying why is this man saying that? You are not allowed to marry your knees when he knows that I want to do this.
Now he couldn't do that. Because had he did that. The people would have renamed against him probably stood up against him maybe 14 they would have been chaos. So he decided, Okay, let's hold it for a while. But this nice was also a culprit.
She also did not rest. She said no. I'm not going to stop the marriage which was about to happen. And this one man stopping it can't be. So she began to start sending different types of messages to the king and dancing for him and singing for him at different occasions and so on and luring him until he really felt this desire that I need this woman in my life.
So she said no, you have to marry me defy this men. Imagine a woman ruling the roost.
One woman creating havoc. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, she said no, you get rid of this man.
You You must marry me number one, number two is as Maha I want the head of Yeah.
Look at how dirty filthy, ugly, bad wretched evil. This woman is. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. These stories are not mentioned in the Quran as fairy tales. They are there for us to apply in our own communities and in our own societies, and in our own situations, wherever they fit. We fit them to learn a lesson. And the idea is to learn a lesson for myself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us steadfastness.
What happened? The King decided, Okay, that's it. He sends his army and he told his men we need the head of this man. Yet the man was loved by everyone. They went into him whilst he was engaged in prayer to Allah subhanho wa Taala in his in that place of worship, they cut his head off to get back to the king.
The Prophet Yeah, john May peace be upon him. He had met the Prophet Jesus and they had lived they had discussed inshallah, we will see that tomorrow but we are speaking now of how he was brutally murdered. And Allah says in the Quran, and we will end with this verse. In Allah, Vina funa big lie
Why okoto Luna Latina mo Nabina
those who disbelieve and they go out killing the messengers of Allah and they go out killing those who are instructing them to do good and those who are upholding the Justice from Allah subhanho wa Taala let them know that there is a severe punishment awaiting them. Those are the ones whose deeds have been wasted in this world and in the next and indeed in the life after death, they will have nobody to help them at all. This is a powerful verse that Allah makes mention of in Surah, Allah and Moran when he's speaking of the family of MRR, that family was a very small family. A whole chapter in the Quran is named after the family of Iran. It was made up of Mr. His wife, his daughter, Mary
or Maria and her child Jesus or a Salah his solemn the Quran has named a whole chapter after the family of MRR, another whole chapter, after Mary herself Maria May peace be upon her, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us goodness the lesson is when we get irritated by those who are telling us Allah has said this, and Allah has said that and this is the law of Allah and this is what it is supposed to be. That is the first sign of rejection from within. We need to be careful. Let us extinguish that fire as it starts. Don't allow yourself to be irritated when people press the right buttons. And when they are speaking about items we are guilty of involving in because that is a
message from Allah subhanho wa Taala just like the Prophet yahia when he lectured them, they got upset and they started saying controversial and we don't want it and he shouldn't say this. They ended up killing him. Some of us may Allah protect us. We would like to extinguish people we would like to remove people from the face of the earth when they tell us brother You are totally wrong. You are heading in the wrong direction, be warned of a punishment and so on. We don't like it. Let us change our ways and habits inshallah, Let us love those who correct us that is the only way we will improve until we meet tomorrow. Insha Allah sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Subhana Allah
