Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu lillahi wa kafa wa sallahu wa salam o. Allah Abadi Latinas cassava. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless him and all his companions, to grant them all goodness and to grant us goodness as well in this world as well as in the next. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those who are saved from the punishment of hellfire. This evening, we read some very, very touching verses where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the condition of the wrongdoers in the sinners. when death comes to them, they will tell the angels
of death to give them another chance, or they will tell Allah subhanho wa Taala to give them another chance, because they will say now we understand and now we have seen and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Can in kalama
may indeed it is only a statement that they are uttering they will not be granted another chance. And even if they were granted another chance, they would repeat the same deeds that they had done. And Allah says they will have to remain in this condition until the day they will be resurrected, and the accounts shall be taken.
We were in the midst of the story of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. In fact, we had completed the story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam mentioned was made of the death of Ibrahim alayhi salam. But what is important for us to know is the precise point of where he died, only comes to us from the people of the book and from the Hebrew Scriptures. So exactly where he died. We can say that he was buried here or there or in Al Halim, or Hebron and so on. But we should remember that that information came to us from the Hebrew Scriptures and our policy with that is lanuza dickwella. naka de we neither say it is false, nor do we say it is true. It is something it may be true, it may not be true. It is
not, in fact, something that we are going to be questioned on the day of the AMA to say, Where was Ibrahim Alayhi Salam buried? We are not going to be questioned about that. We are going to be questioned about our own deeds. What are the lessons that you learned from the story of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, as we have said there was a prophet known as Luca, Luca la Salaam, briefly, his history is that he was a youngster at the time of Ibrahim alayhis salaam when Ebrahim Alayhi Salam was thrown into the fire. And when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam came out, and so on this young man, he accepted the message of Ibrahim and he was the only one at the time later on, there was a female
known as Salah, who had also accepted the message of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and those were the two. So if Rahim Allah Islam went further up north later on, and we had made mention of how he sent loot Allah His Salaam, to the people of Sedona, or the people of Sodom and Gomorrah as we know them in the English language. And Luth Allah is Salam was working in that region, whilst Ibrahim alayhis salam had his own life and what happened in Makkah happened and so on. Now, note Allah is Salam found his people to be very, very different, to be wrong to be queer to be filthy. The word used in the Quran is filthy. And we read that verse this evening in Surah, Colombia.
We are lost subhanho wa Taala says, One a Jaina hoomin alchemy. Atilla tea can determine
if we saved him from the people who used to engage in filth.
How about that which is completely dirty and filthy. So Allah describes this action as foof and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, cannabis komono cleaning notice any the people of law have belied all the messengers. Now there was just one messenger who came to them so why does Allah say they belied all the messages? Because we are Muslims. What do we say? We believe in Allah as one La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we believe in that Shahada, that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger. But our Eman is not complete unless we believe in all the messengers, the previous
messages. So if someone says I believe in Noah, Abraham, but I don't believe in Moses and then I believe in Jesus and so on. He cannot call himself a Muslim. He cannot because we believe are meant to be law he wama ekati wakatobi he was really good and so on. We believe in Allah we believe in all the books. In a nutshell, we believe there were books revealed
To these messengers, or to some of the messengers and whatever we know from them, we accept and we know that this is correct if the Quran has confirmed it. The same applies to the messengers. Those names that appear in the Quran we have to accept and we have to believe that they were all the highest of people the best that were chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the fact that they denied loot alayhis salam, they denied everybody else. It means they denied everybody else and this is the same message that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to all the previous nations as well. So Allah says, His call Allah Allah,
Allah takuna in Nila Kumar also known me In fact,
when Luca de Sallam told them
Don't you fear Allah, I am a messenger who is trustworthy, I have come to you fear Allah subhanho wa Taala Alma as long Kumar la mean, Jo, in Nigeria in La la la, la la la me, I am not asking you a single penny. Look again. He says, I'm not asking $1 from you, meaning nothing, no currency, no money, no gold, no silver, nothing material. I don't want anything. So they began to accuse him this man is come to our town here. And he's starting to convey a message and telling us to stop doing what we're doing because he wants to make gain something out of it. And Allah says no, he told his people I don't want anything from you nothing at all. My recompense is with my job. And then he
directly mentioned to them what they were doing and how wrong it was. Tuna Luca on amin, Allah Allah.
Allah Allah Kuma buku

How can you engage yourselves with the same sex? How can you engage in Acts of immorality, with the same sex? And how can you prefer them over the females? Indeed, you are a people who have transgressed the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Let us pause there for a moment. Today we have people claiming to be Muslims. And I've heard one of them on YouTube recently, who says no, I've studied the Quran I studied the Quran totally. And in the Quran, what is prohibited is to rape the men. But if it is done with consent, there's nothing wrong. This is what they say. How foolish they are, how foolish they are. When loot is saying, you prefer to do this with men and you are leaving the women? does that imply that he's saying don't rape the men rape the women?
Is that what he's trying to say? So the Quran clearly says that it is wrong what you are doing. They did it both ways through rape as well as through consent both, but they only did it with the same kind, Allahu Akbar. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how filthy this is, you know, I've given you one response, but that is the whole basis upon which people claim to still be Muslim. And they believe that the Quran does not reject this issue of homosexuality. Well, they don't understand Arabic. They haven't understood anything that the Quran has come with. And to be honest, they are blinded because the Quran says when someone begins to engage in this type of action, Allah says it
and we will come to that verse, they become blind, blind, meaning they can't see the right from wrong, nothing at all. So, with all due respect to the animals, they are worse than those animals may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us remember, we are saying here due respect to the animals because animals, it is an insult to them to even suggest this to them, automatically. The dogs and the pigs do not engage in this automatically by nature. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to safeguard us, and this we are saying it with an open chest What that means is, it's a challenge. Allahu Akbar. I know secularly someone might say, well, we are free to engage in this type of behavior. Well, I
will tell you we who are seated here are all Muslim men. as Muslims, we are not free Allahu Akbar, we have chosen to surrender. Once you choose to surrender you no longer free you are governed by a certain code of conduct. For example, you are now a South African for example, you are no longer free to do anything that would break the law of South Africa. But if you want to break the law, you can go and live in another country. The same applies when you are not a Muslim. You can do what you want. But the minute you say you are a Muslim, you are governed by Islam. If you want to do something against Islam, one is to commit it knowing it's wrong. You still remain a Muslim, but you
are a sinful person Allah safeguard us, but to is to do
Do it and justify it and say Islam does not prohibited that would remove us from being a citizen of Islam. If we can read it that way. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us safety and our children as well. So this is common logic. We understand this completely, that why is he comparing with the other six, when if they were engaging in rape in the same way, it's wrong to rape this it would be wrong to rape that may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. And may He opened the doors of guidance for us all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, their sin was not only that they were engaging in this type of sodomy, it is known as sodomy because the village or the town was
known as saddam, saddam. So that name that word has been derived from them, because they were the first in the history of mankind to engage in that, according to Allah Subhana. Allah in the Quran. Allah says,
ma Saba Kaku beihai mean I had him mean Allah, Allah me, how can you engage in this that nobody before you has ever ever engaged in? So that means they were the first. Now those who say it's a biological problem, you know, it is hereditary. You pick it up and so on. It's in your genes. Allah He that is a lame cheap excuse, cheap excuse. And I am baffled at how some people of medicine can even agree with that. Because there are certain people addicted to adultery. Why don't they say, Well, you know what? It's hereditary. Some people are addicted to alcohol. Why don't they say it's hereditary? Any sin? You can use the same cheap excuse to say it's hereditary. I got it from my
forefathers, Allahu Akbar. How can we say that if that was the case, anybody would be able to justify any sin they are engaged in. So nothing is hereditary. It is just people who cannot control themselves. And now people who want to allow themselves to think dirty and they continue with those thoughts. And then they want to fulfill those thoughts and continue in that particular field. Believe me, a practicing Jew, and the practicing Christian, a practicing Muslim. They all look at this in the same way. The moment someone has looked at it with an eye of acceptance, they lose Christianity, they lose their Judaism, they would lose their Islam.
Something common and those who have decided to accept it, they have changed their religion, Allahu Akbar, they have modified their religion, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us as Muslims protection, we inshallah we will never ever, we will never ever say that it is acceptable in Islam. secularly If you happen to be living in a country in the West, or a country that doesn't want you to talk about it, and so on, we will utter a balanced statement and that is, in the same way that those people who want to look at it in that way are free to look at it that way. secularly we are free to look at it as wrong secularly as well. So I hope we understand it. Nobody needs to say no, it's
acceptable. There are some countries they are forcing it to be studied in the syllabuses. They are forcing it to be studied in the syllabuses and encourage it as something that there's nothing wrong about whereas we need to understand that is defying Allah subhanho wa Taala as nature that he has created us upon
the very nature that man is being created upon is being defined not only men but the creatures of Allah. Allah says Amina kinesia in Hakuna Janie Allah Allah tada
every single thing we have created in pays for you to take heat.
When you have the ions you have positive you have negative
when you have electricity, you have positive you have negative Why don't they put into positives love? Then see what happens to negatives you get nothing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding so Allah says, don't only look at mankind and other other kind, meaning living creatures look at everything we've created in pace. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding the people of Lord Allah His salon, they also engaged in what is known as katakuri which means they were highwayman. highwayman in the sense that they used to waylay the traveler and block him and steal his property. And they used to engage in that type of misbehavior as well.
Another thing Allah says, What tuna Vina de como
they used to have their clubs the word nadie means a club. They had that clubs where they used to gather and engage in evil all the time. They would gather in the clubs, they would encourage people in evil doing evil, and they would do all that evil, so so much evil. And Allah says this was one of the main things they used to do. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Lord Allah Sallam said to them directly
at the tune alpha heisha Tower.
How can you engage in homosexuality? And not only that, but in full view of everybody, Allah, so that was another crime. What was the crime? Allah says one too soon, you are shamelessly engaging in it whilst people are watching. People are looking at you, you have no shame. This is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, people will continue to have the hope of the forgiveness of Allah for as long as they don't commit open sin. The minute you commit a sin openly, when everybody is watching, your hope is less We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us protection. Because there are people who do it openly. You know, sometimes you find a person
as you walk, and they are engaging in something evil, say for example, someone is blasting his beat in his motor vehicle. And the whole road is shaking. And they notice Oh, there's a shift next to me. They used to turn it off before they used to turn it off. Nowadays, they don't have the music, they see the shift, and they blast it. What is he gonna do about it? This is what's happening. Why? Because people are now asking for the punishment of Allah. They're asking,
you know, before if there was a boy and a girl holding hands, and the shake was passing, they quickly left hands because they said we don't want to be seen like this. You know, we're not related here. We just, you know, illicit so to speak. Now chef passes, they start hugging and kissing in front of you what you're going to do, even my father didn't tell me. So the world is changing. People are asking for trouble. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says here
in acuminata tuna Ronnie Jalla wa Tato una sebelah una de nada de como la, comme firstly the sin you are committing you are engaging in homosexuality. Secondly, you are wailing the traveller and stealing all his goods. And thirdly in your clubs you are engaging in nothing but evil. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says loot Allah is salatu wa sallam continued reminding them and they laughed at him. They scoffed at him, they accused him of being possessed. They accused him of being all sorts of people who wanted this and who wanted that. And Allah subhanho wa Taala did not give him any male children. He only had two girls, two daughters.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about them. But before we get there, let us take a look at some of the words that are used in the Quran to describe these people. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in coolatta tonari Jalla Shahada
de feu, how can you engage in intercourse with the same sex as stavroula? One wonders how to describe it. Once I had met two people on an aircraft when I left Cape Town going to Johannesburg and I have to share this with you. And one brother, I asked him, what's your name? He says, This is my name. He gave me a Muslim name. And the other brother, I asked him, what's your name? He says, This is my name. And I said, so is this your father? He says no.
Hello acaba, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection.
I had to get up. And I had to tell him with all due respect, I've never come across this before I have one question for you. What do you do? That's all I want to know.
And voila, he just looked at me, do you know that I can get you arrested for harassment? So what are you talking about? I'm asking you a question. Now the reason I'm saying this openly here today is because it is happening in our midst, and people are not betting an island. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.
And may Allah subhanho wa Taala God does goodness. Yes. If anyone wants to leave the fold of Islam, they are answerable to Allah not to me or to you or to anyone else, but we will continue preaching the Quran because we are free to do that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. So Allah says Belen from Coleman, Missouri phone, you are people who have indeed gone beyond limits. In another verse bill and Tom Coburn alone, you are people who are thick stuff, Allah Jalla ignorance complete idiocy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us these are words used in the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, How can you leave that which we have created for you and opt for
something else? From this verse again? We learned it was not just rape. Because if it was Allah wouldn't say well go and rape the females No.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says loot Allah He Salam looked at his people and he said
Carla in Neely, Amelie Mina, Colleen Oh my people, I disassociate myself completely from whatever you are doing. I am not a part of you.
And I will never engage in this nor will I ever condone it. And I want to make it clear that I oppose you very strongly. And I'm warning you of a severe punishment to come from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then Allah says, WA Kanazawa Bocconi in, follow
His people only had one answer.
They told him, the rest of them, they spoke amongst each other and they said we need to kick loot out of our community because he, he thinks he's very pure and clean. He thinks he is very pure and clean, we need to kick him out of the community. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this. And Allah says in another verse pharmerica nyjah, Tomi in
their response was that we need to now kick Luke and his family out of this community because they are people who claim to be very clean, and they look at us as though we are very dirty. So then they want him in lambda here. Oh, la coonan Amina Raji in a lot. If you don't stop saying what you are saying, we will kick you out.
If you don't stop saying what you are saying, we will kick you out. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, loot Allah is Allah mourn them of a punishment. He said, Look, Allah is going to come to you with a punishment. I am telling you to do something that is better for you. And why is it that you want to engage in this and you have been blinded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there was another response they gave when he warned them over punishment.
Allah says, former Kanazawa Tomi
call Tina Piazza
tamina Sati in the response of that community was none other than Oh loop bring the punishment of Allah to us. Now if you are truthful, that was the same thing they told me Allah Islam, now they are asking for trouble. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when they said that loot Allah is Allah made.
He made a
call out of Sony alchemilla CD, he said, Oh, my ROM helped me against these people. Now remember one thing Lord, Allah is Allah was one men, one.
And he had two daughters.
Those were the three that had believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The rest of the community was sick, Allahu Akbar. According to the Quran, they were all out of their heads. Allah says they were blinded. They were encouraging people. They used to gather together and encourage, and whenever people used to be passing, they used to pounce on them.
When the traveler is passing, they used to hide like vultures. And after a while they would land on them bounce, go and do what they want. And either release them or hold them captive and continue doing with them, whatever they wanted. This is how evil the people were.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this. And he says then lute Alayhi Salam raised his hands to us, and he asked us for help. And he says, have been a genie wa Halimi, my Amen. Oh, Oh Allah safeguard myself and my family from what they are doing.
Now, if you take a look at what we believe is the change the Bible, you find that they blame loot, they call him also one of them and they say he engaged in an act with his own daughters started Allah. In Islam, we believe that is blasphemous, that is the highest blasphemy is to insult a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to accuse him of something that really he is free from when Allah sends us a messenger, he sends to us the highest of messengers, those who have the highest character and conduct and the cleanest of the crop. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding
Salut Ali Salam was free from all that. They accused him they said what they wanted later on. Only Allah knows why they changed the scriptures in order to try and make him look like a criminal Was it because they also wanted to engage in it only Allah knows. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So Allah says thereafter regarding Leute alayhi salatu salam.
Now, we need to stop for a moment and look at what happened. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was living at the time and his hat Alayhi Salam had not yet been born. Isaac May peace be upon him was not yet born. When Luke made this vow, Isaac May peace be upon him was not here.
Born and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We sent three angels we spoke about it two nights back, we sent three angels to the Prophet Abraham.
And when they came to Abraham he did not recognize them as angels initially and you know he brought in the calf and Mashallah, it was a roasted calf that he brought in. And Subhana Allah, nice fat calf when they didn't eat, he was frightened to a certain extent, meaning he wanted to know the reality of who they were. And when he asked them, who are you, in fact, they then told him, we are messengers of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
And we have been sent to the people of loads and we have been sent to inform you that your wife has conceived and inshallah she will be delivering a child known as his house.
So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam looked at them, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, follow
him along wacha Bushra Pooja de Luna de comida Lu, when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam fear subsided, and we gave him the good news, he started debating with us about loots people, meaning trying to buy a little bit of time for them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We told him or Ibrahim stay out of that, we have already declared that the punishment is going to go on them. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam says, Allah in a fee,
when they describe what type of punishment was going to come to those people, they said, luck, but we will come to these verses. But they said, We have been sent with stones, huge stones made of baked clay, with a name engraved on each stone for all of them.
Now, what is this, we will come to explain what it means. Now, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was worried. He says in De Luca, but Luke is from amongst the meaning he is living in that community. They said nothing no Allah movie movie ha, we know exactly who is there. We know better than you who is in that community. We will save him, don't worry, and we will save those who deserve to be saved.
In the meantime, they proceeded and they now walked towards saddam.
When they got there, the first people to see these three very handsome looking men, the most handsome that were seen
with the daughters of Luth alayhis. Salam, they saw and they were believers, immediately they were worried they ran to their father. Yeah, no, you know what, there are certain people who are coming into the town. And we need definitely, this was now in the evening. This was now in the evening. We need to save these men because you know, these people will come and they will rate these men literally.
Salute Ali Salaam quickly rush to those men. And he greeted them. And he as he greeted them. He was taking them towards his house. He said, will you be guest guests at my place guests at my place, believe me, and they said, Okay, we'll be guests in your place, no problem. And they began to walk and as they walking, lo Talley Salaam says to them, you know, Allah has never created worse people than these.
So the angels were happy to hear that Why? Because Allah told them do not descend with the punishment until the messenger who was sent to them bears witness that they deserve it.
So when they heard it from La, la Salaam, they now knew that this means it's correct. We have now got the directive, you know, as we would say, final signature on
and he continued repeating it to say the very bad, these are the worst people, these are the bad people. There is no one worse than them. He continued saying that trying to discourage them from spending the night there. So he had a role as a host and the role as a person who had to also tell them to live in a nice way. It's the best bet to live. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us safety.
So they continued, they went into the house, and he's still telling them they're very bad people, you know, these people, they engage in so much evil and whatnot. And now what had happened, nobody found out. Nobody had seen them on the road. They had gone in slipped into the house, and the doors were locked. Luckily Sam was happy. You were satisfied that at least no one's seen. But very sadly, Allah subhanho wa Taala speech in the Quran Allah says Baba Allahumma vena cava Ma
Ma Jo, gana Tata
sakana Tahoma munia amin Allah insha Allah
Allah gives the examples of the wives of Noah and load. Both of them had Corona Tahoma they deceived their husbands. So not only his salaams wife deceived him, she collaborated with the criminals by sending message out, hey is three very good looking men who've come to our house, the message went out.
So Allah says that woman will deserve the punishment for collaboration. From this we also learn, Allah says to our choco wallet,
always assist one another in righteousness. When it comes to evil. Don't help one another. Each one is on his own. Don't help a person engaging in evil. Someone wants a lift where you're going into the pub, you leave him there, let him in the rain, whatever it is, leave him there. The minute you carry him, every bottle he has you share the equal sin.
And this is why when someone going to the masjid, you stop every record of Salah he reads you get an equal reward. help people to come to Salah help people to fulfill. So the same way we get a good reward when we help someone to do good. We share the evil when we assist them to do evil. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can remind people not to engage in evil. So now Allah says
Medina to establish
the people of the community, the men started coming, and they were giving each other good news. Hey, see you guys there. Hey, these three guys, they, they continued, hey, these three guys, they let's go and they all started going in that direction. Look at how Allah makes mention of it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, This is very, very dangerous, very, very dangerous. Because when they looked at loot, and they told him, they knocked on his door, they said, Hey, open the door. He said, What do you mean? I've got guests here.
latos Zuni V by V. La Sammy Camacho Rashid, don't embarrass me with my guests here. Is there not a single one of you who is sensible, even one from amongst you sensible? Who can let go of these guests of mine and you want to embarrass me? I've got guests here. You have no respect for these guests. And they said to him,
Carlo, our alumna Colonel al amin, aleut. Didn't we tell you that you are not allowed to have host anybody, no one imagined they had set a law for themselves that this man is not allowed to host anyone. Because if he hosts them, we're gonna have a problem with him. Anyone else host them. They could pounce on that person at night.
So Nutella is Salatu was Salam. He continued trying to tell them different ways. In the meantime, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes something greater wotja como una LA, a whole lot of them came rushing to him. almost the whole community. Allah says the tone came, the whole nation came
and they came rushing to him. And they when they heard they all wanted a share of it and stuff Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and they came to the door and they went they started banging on the door. They wanted to break it now. Law cupboard and they were about to break the door. Now Nutella Salam is worried and he escaped.
Scared for what he's worried that these guests here they are my guests and these people are not even letting go of these guests.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, he looked at them and he said, Allah Allah Ivana T. co to me, at that stage, he said, Look, all my people, my daughters, you can marry them if you want. When he said my daughters he is meaning the daughters of the oma the females that are there. They weren't as good as his own daughters. So he says Why don't you engage in this act with the daughters with the girls?
You can marry them if you wish. What are you doing here? Why do you want to do this? Do you know what they said to him?
Tallulah Tada, alum Jamal and Alfie bannerjee coming
in Ocala de la mano de Loup, you know, we not interested in the girls, you know exactly what we want. Now how La quwata illa Allah and Allah says this in the Quran, and Allah says, this is how they acted, you know exactly what we want.
Now, he was almost helpless, and he uttered the following statement.
nanny be Cuckoo.
he said, I wish and I hope that at this point, I had males to help me because he's only got two daughters. I had males to help me or some powerful support that could protect us here. How much I wish and I hope and at that moment
when these people were a split second away from achieving what they thought they would achieve, these three men spoke up yalu in a beaker laoshi No. elica although we are angels,
they will never ever be able to harm you Not in the least linear Silverlake not at all for assiniboia helicobacter miniland Laney
Well, I al Jaffe, come on, in attack.
Go up now, by night, live this community and go as far as you can, and do not turn back at all. Don't even turn back to look at them.
Besides your wife besides your wife, meaning your wife might join you but she will turn back and receive the punishment or your wife will not join you one of the two things whatever it was, Allah knows best salute Allah is Allah Salam immediately left because he was told in Houma, Cebu Hama, asaba, whom, in my way de homos, Saba, Allah is a Super Javi carried these peoples final time is
at daybreak, morning, early morning. Isn't that so near? aleut It's so near you just go away. go as fast as you can. And as far as you can just go, you and your family. So he took his daughters and he went.
Now what happened? Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
These were the people who were punished in the biggest way they had three different punishments. Three different punishments for one nation. Allah says, For after that, who Messiah to maturity as that battle ensued, early morning, they had the awful cry. Remember, we spoke about the sound wave, the awful cry, and it was so loud it started shaking them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, He instructed the angel jabril, who was one of them
to get back into his original form,
what is the original form of gibril the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes,
he says, I have seen jabril in his original form, Wallah who said to me it Jenna, he has 600 wings, each wing. It starts from the east and ends in the West, we can't even see where it starts. And we don't know where it ends each wing.
So jabril alayhi salam came to his proper form. And with the tip of one of his wings, he dug under the entire community. And this was after they already heard the awful cry, and they were already being punished. And he lifted them right up, right up. And then he turned them upside down. And they dropped from there going straight down. And they were punished severely. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fudger Allah Allah has,
