Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

00:00:05--> 00:00:09

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala

00:00:11--> 00:00:17

nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Vina woman Tabby on the son Elijah Medina.

00:00:18--> 00:01:01

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless his entire family as well as all his companions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless those who have strived who have strived struggled to bring this Dean to us May he bless us and our offspring those to come up to the day of piano. Beloved brothers and sisters this evening we will divert slightly from the story of musala is Salatu was Salam. For the reason that the Nabhi we are about to discuss this evening, the prophet Shuaib la salatu wa salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala peace and blessings be upon him. It is reported that he

00:01:01--> 00:01:49

was at a similar time of Musa la salatu salam, although this is not made mention of in the Quran, or in the suit of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but some historians suggest that it was at a similar time, just like we made mention a few days ago that some historians suggest that Musa alayhis salam had married his daughter. Now precisely whether it was this shy, or it was another pious servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is a slight bit of difference of opinion but we have chosen to make mention of it here because he was sent to a different people in a different place further across the sea in a place known as Medina, for your information. madeon is not very far from

00:01:49--> 00:01:59

where the people of loot were. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says that saw Shu ivalue Salatu was Salam said, WA como lo

00:02:01--> 00:02:49

be buried. He told his people that the people of loot, were not very far from you far in two ways. One is zamana one McCann, which means they were now then the other day they were destroyed by Allah subhanho wa Taala nearby, and the other is in close proximity to you they were destroyed. So we know where madeon is not very far from what is known as bourassa doom or the valleys of Sodom. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. This Prophet was very eloquent. He was also known as hockeyville ambia, which means he spoke very, very well. He reasoned with the people he debated with him and his arguments were proper, Allahu Akbar, he was given the power of speech as well we all know that

00:02:49--> 00:03:33

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was who may or may mean unlettered, the word we use is unlimited, in that he could not read or write. But at the same time, he was the most eloquent of all so much so that to this day, not only the verses of the Quran, but even the pure a hadith and the narrations of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam are used in order to confirm the dramatics of the Arabic language. Up to this day, if you get a Heidi, and it's a hadith which is agreed upon, or a solid, powerful Hadith, you will find that its wording is studied by the linguists of the Arabic language in order to confirm not the Hadith, but the Arabic language. This is the

00:03:33--> 00:03:51

power of the eloquence of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But this man was a person who was educated, he was able to read and write and at the same time, he was a very good speaker and writer. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the people of Medina, they are referred to as two things one is

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

as habermasian as habermasian, meaning the people have median and the other is us have

00:04:00--> 00:04:47

the people have the wooden tree, there was a tree which they used to worship, and after it, they were named. So they used to worship the tree, but what type of people were these very important for us to know, in our life today, we find that this Nabhi and the message he was sent with, it is a great lesson for us. It fits in our lives, in our communities, in our midst, on an international scale as well. So these people were very wealthy, extremely rich, but they earned their money through cheating through corruption through dirty and clandestine means. They used to short change people intentionally. They were the first who started charging people taxes, and they were the first

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

who started taking bribes and so on from people. You know what is a tax? They tell you you want me to do this, you've got to pay 5% so they were the first percentage lot now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

Remember the sustenance we have been given we will come to see the verses of the Quran. What is less but pure is far better than what is in large amounts and quantities but contaminated. May Allah subhana wa Taala safeguard us also we will come to learn today what is the punishment of a person who consumes that which is prohibited. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What Allah Medina for whom Shiva and to the people of Medina, we sent their brother Shoei.

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

In one place in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he says, cut,

00:05:35--> 00:06:15

a cut in morosini Pol Allahu Allah Tatupu, the people who used to worship that huge tree known as an acre. They have belied all the messengers we've mentioned in the past, if you've belied one you've belied all of them. If a person now from amongst us who claims to be Muslim, and they say, I don't believe in Jesus, they cannot call themselves Muslim. If they say I don't believe in Musa alayhis salam, or any one of the ambia they cannot call themselves Muslim. And if there is someone who believes in all of them, but that does not believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they can also not call themselves Muslim. So if you knock out one, you've knocked out all of them, may Allah

00:06:15--> 00:06:52

grant us understanding. So at that, in that verse, Allah does not say the brother, their brother, he just says, If Karla home Shriver, what is the reason there is a very clear reason. The reason is when Allah is describing them as people who worshiped that piece of wood or that bark or that tree, he does not want to call sure I have a brother of this in worship. He did not worship the same deity. He did not associate partnership with Allah subhanho wa Taala. He used to worship when Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Kalia, Tommy Mottola. Nah, man, I mean,

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

he told his people First things first worship Allah alone you don't have a diety besides Allah.

00:07:01--> 00:07:33

Once again, we come to the first and utmost and prime message of all the messengers. They were worried. They were very concerned the first matter they raised, be careful do not worship anyone but Allah because chiffons first promise was that Yeah, Allah I will show you that they will not worship you. They will worship everything besides you. They will even worship one another. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save goddess. So it's important for us to understand the message of these prophets. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says srivalli salatu wa sallam told them

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

for our full Kayla one Misa wa tada

00:07:43--> 00:08:29

you should fulfill or fulfill the measure when you are dealing fulfill the measure properly and the wait there is a difference between alcohol and enemies an alcohol is a measurement and Elisa is a weight. So when you have a cane, you are talking of cubic meters or something cubic. And when you are talking of enemies and you are talking of kilograms or weight, something that weighs so he says do not shortchange the people, neither in the volume no in the weight, don't shortchange them. Remember, if you are to be honest, and you are to give someone something straight, as they have paid for Allah will grant you Baraka and this is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:30--> 00:09:21

for in sadaqa Yana Budi Kala Houma Phoebe Hema the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says if the two parties who are buying and selling if they are honest and they are clear and transparent, Allah will give them Baraka in that deal of this war in Kedah what ketema Baraka to bury him, and if they lie to one another, and they hide from one another, the defects of the item, then the Baraka or the blessings of the deal are snatched away We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us Baraka so srivalli salatu salam says, wala to see don't fill out the bad that is Lucha and do not cause corruption on earth or do not spoil what has already been decided and confirmed and rectify. When something is

00:09:21--> 00:09:57

rectified. They used to go back and spoil it. It reminds me of people typically when you solve the problem, and you've had a meeting and everything is resolved, and after you exit the door, the problem starts once again. Because then people who did not have mouths when we were sitting in discussing, they suddenly developed mouths as they left the door. So what happened? They started the problem once again, after it was resolved. These people they are senseless, they do not have an understanding they are falling prey to the devil and Satan. And this is what Dr and his Salatu was Salam says after a matter is resolved, after things are sorted. Do not go and re invent the problem.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

solution to our matters and problems. And he continued, he says,

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

but he told

00:10:11--> 00:10:54

me that which remains after you have given people that do is far better for you than to eat that which belongs to others. So don't you save what belongs to people, they owed people money for nothing, they will know that they were rich, but they still love to take things on tick and credit. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who do not go and borrow for no reason. Remember to borrow money is something that is a very, very big burden on the shoulders. It is something that should be only a last resort, not any small thing and we live, higher purchase. And we've taken this and that take a look at the United States of America,

00:10:54--> 00:11:35

what happened to them, most of the people live on credit. So they have a credit card. The house is on credit they are owing the car is on credit, the furniture is on credit, the all the appliances on credit, the holiday they went on credit and they are just swiping swiping swiping what happened, they calculated that we have a job and we will continue paying every month. But they did not calculate the power of Allah when Allah told them to adjust their lives according to what their pockets have. They did not do that. They never thought that they would lose their jobs. So when the recession came in, they lost their jobs. Suddenly, the man for the car comes and cleans the car, the

00:11:35--> 00:11:48

man for the house comes and sells the house, they are on the street and they do not have transport. Next thing all the appliances are gone. Next thing there is a court case against them because they owe so much money, they had never thought that we might lose our job.

00:11:50--> 00:12:31

This is why do not get excited. You got a very, very good job and start taking things on hire purchase as a Muslim, that is haram. You should not do that. And you should not follow the trends of the kuffaar you tailor make your life in accordance with your pocket yesterday I was speaking to someone asking me so how long am I not going to be able to afford a house? And I said, Do you know the majority of the people on the globe live in rented accommodation up to death and they die? Their bodies leave that home which was rented accommodation. So why is it that we feel I must own a house when it's far beyond our means. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ownership of a boat within his

00:12:31--> 00:12:50

within limits. May Allah make us not slaves of credit and people who are pressurized people who live a life that is a fake life, everything they have they enjoying their cell phones, they enjoying all their cars and houses everything on credit. If that is the case, listen to what she says. He says but he is

00:12:51--> 00:13:05

the little remnants that you have that is pure is better for you than that which does not belong to you. Far better. What a powerful lesson we have to learn from that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. And then Shyvana is salatu salam says,

00:13:06--> 00:13:19

You people, you are so haughty. You are so arrogant, you are so rich, you think you can get your way with everything. Everybody must be jumping to your tune. Everybody must be dancing to your tune.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

Wala topo dooby

00:13:26--> 00:13:30

doo. Sabine men

00:13:34--> 00:14:23

do not sit on every path, threatening and hindering those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala do not sit on every path, every avenue that those who believe are treading you are either blocking them, hindering them or threatening them. And you want them to bend the rules so that they must adopt your whims and fancies. This was a straight, powerful message. It reminds me very clearly of what happens on the globe today. You find people threatening you find people may Allah protect us hindering and blocking and you find people wanting you to dance to their tune only because they have money May Allah destroy them. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us victory. Really we cannot jump

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

to the tune of finance we jump to the tune of Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah says something we should immediately jump up to it. And when someone else says something that is in conformity to what Allah has sent Alhamdulillah we will follow it. But the moment they have said something against the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala solely because they have money, you will witness the people around following them. Because people do not understand why we are alive. Many people think we are alive because we need to make a mark on the globe that we have so many businesses we have so much money we are earning so much a day and that money

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

We live after we die, everybody will say this man was the most loaded. That's what a lot of people think. But they don't realize we are in this life as muslimeen solely to prepare for the eternal life after death, the preparation, that's one word. So if anyone thinks they are living for any reason, besides the preparation of the AF Hara, they have lost the plot.

00:15:22--> 00:16:01

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding, every day of ours, yes, we will earn to eat we will earn to have accommodation, to have food, to have clothing to have various other items to keep us going. But every day we should ask ourselves what did I do for the preparation of the Akira if this was my last day, because one of the days will definitely be the last day how many people in our must have left? Young and old death knows no age. So we should understand that? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says these people tell the hoonah agenda, they wanted everything to follow them, they wanted the path to follow them make

00:16:01--> 00:16:15

it crooked so that it must happen according to us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says srivalli salam reminded them that you people used to be small in number, Allah granted you lots of increase, increase in everything. What

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

is Tim Kelly?

00:16:21--> 00:16:34

Remember when you were very small in number, and Allah subhanho wa Taala granted you multiplication. And this is a reminder for us. As I said, a few days back, we should remember our humble beginnings when we had nothing

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

when we used to share so much, and when

00:16:39--> 00:17:19

the previous generation didn't even have shoes to wear from amongst our own forefathers and today we are sitting here Mashallah, we've got so many shoes out there, that I'm sure there would be a few spare pairs in order to cater for someone who'd like to go into the ablution block. This is how fortunate we are now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to thank you because a few generations back What did we have? Allah is the one who best out us with increase, and we have so much still we are ungrateful. Have you ever thought How ironic it is that our forefathers had much less than us, but they were happier. We have much more than them but our days are full of stress.

00:17:20--> 00:17:55

Have we ever thought of that? Because we have started running behind as well. And may Allah protect us from wells that is contaminated. wells that is contaminated will bring about disaster. It will spell disaster after Doom after disaster. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us from wealth that is dirty from wealth that is filthy, because it will take away those things that are priceless. Those things that you cannot buy with money, such as your sleep, such as your health, such as your contentment, such as the obedience of your children, such as many other items around you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

they told you a Salaam that you are foolish. You are indeed possessed Paolo in

00:18:06--> 00:18:40

tamina Musa herring, you are definitely foolish. Why was he foolish? Why don't you think of doing a deal or two with us will make you rich? Why don't you join our circle you better stop saying what you are saying it's not worth it. You are such a fool. In life. You want to suffer yet you have got a little bit of wealth. Join me with ours. We will multiply it for you. You don't know business. We know business. You stick to your religion. We know everything about the world. This was their message. And Allah Subhana Allah says he told them, Kalia told me, he told

00:18:43--> 00:19:25

me was a Tony Morris con Hashanah. Oh my people don't you see that I have come with clear signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah has blessed me with such pure wealth Should I still contaminated by joining it with yours? I might have less than you but I've got pure wealth. Allah has blessed me with sustenance. I don't ask you to pay me. I don't ask you any monetary favors. I am conveying to you the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I will not stop doing this because it is my duty. And if you think that your wealth allows you to make me stop then you are wrong. I have come to you with clear signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala. They told him wama

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

mithuna in

00:19:29--> 00:19:56

local Amina will carry maybe you are just a human being like us, what virtue Do you have over us and over and above that you are a liar. There is something ulterior that you want by this preaching of yours. You probably want to become richer than all of us. So silently you want to preach and at the same time you using that as a front and you want to earn you want to make a lot of money. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says he told them

00:20:01--> 00:20:14

wanna read? Oh Holly fakuma C'mon, oh my aim, my aim and my mission, I do not want to go against what I have

00:20:16--> 00:20:59

prohibited you from which means if I have prohibited you from something, you will not find me engaging in that prohibition. No, I would like to follow exactly what I have told you. If I told you this is no go It is no go. So even if the wealth is so much, and even if you are seeing lots of immediate multiplication in your wealth, through bad and clandestine and wrong means I am not going to be a party to that because my mission is not to go against what I myself prohibit. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala make us people who are non hypocritical. a hypocrite will utter one thing and do another thing. Shyvana is Salam said, I don't want to be hypocritical when I say something, you will

00:20:59--> 00:21:06

find me following exactly what I've said. Then he says in oredo in his law, Hamas data to

00:21:07--> 00:21:46

my intention is to do as much goodness as possible. That is what I want. I'd like to do as much goodness as possible in our lives. We have opportunities to do goodness, we should remember, as I said moments ago, every day is a preparation for the ephemera. Do as much good as you can today. Don't leave it for tomorrow, whether it is charities, whether it is ibadah, whether it is repentance, whether it is a goodness of any other nature, do your goodness today, do not leave it for tomorrow, do as much as you can the following morning, you start off on a new page doing even more inshallah May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can learn a lesson from these wise

00:21:46--> 00:22:20

words of one of the writers of the messengers malas peace be upon all of them. He says I would like to accomplish as much good as possible in the shortest time possible. Why don't we join that now lawmakers from those who can accomplish goodness this is why one of the decisions here was that even after we complete the Quran, there was a request from many people Please come back. We want to continue with these lessons from the Quran from the messengers inshallah. So inshallah We will be back We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us lesson after lesson not only to say that it was a powerful lesson but to adopt it and learn something from it.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

He told them, one motto Vp 11.

00:22:31--> 00:23:12

My tofik is only from Allah, what is the meaning of the term tofi when Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts something when Allah subhana wa Taala has granted something through His mercy. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen someone for something that is to feed from Allah subhanho wa Taala. For example, a man goes out to do business and he has a shop right next to another man's shop. And there are so many people who come into one shop but others, no one comes into the other one. This man tofik from Allah, Allah accepted his wealth and Allah accepted his business and Allah granted him so much and the other one namikawa which means he did not get whatever Allah subhanho wa

00:23:12--> 00:23:52

Taala had control of Allah subhanho wa Taala decided not to give him so the decider of how much wealth you're going to have, how much success you're going to have, how much in terms of goodness you're going to have what Shay is going to come to you that is Allah alone. This is called a tofik. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, this is why we always say what law who more FICO will ha de la sala, Allah is the only one who can accept a person and guide them to the straight path. Because we can learn about goodness we can all know about the straight path but whether to walk on it or not. You need the acceptance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:54--> 00:24:21

This is why he Daya and guidance. Two types. One is Adela earshot one is where you are being taught. This is the guidance. So you might know the guidance, but the other is the telephone to be able to then walk on the path of guidance that is from Allah subhanho wa Taala there are many people who know what guidance is all about, but they don't walk on the path. And this is the rejection from Allah Subhana which Allah May he never do that to us. So srivalli salatu salam continues

00:24:23--> 00:24:42

with his people who began to argue with him one after the other, they were powerful people, their business deals, were making them millions in our terms. They were earning massive amounts and they were dealing and cheating and counting and so corrupt that you find the rich becoming richer. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala really make us from those who have been okay now wealth.

00:24:44--> 00:24:57

They now started arguing with him, and they started despising him. He was one man a few people followed him some of his family members followed him and a few others. So they said, Yeah shuaibu asala Takata

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

natural cameras

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

Nina Manisha in

00:25:15--> 00:26:01

OSHA if you are praying too much, your prayers are your prayers now hindering, coming to us because of your prayers. You are coming to us to tell us to leave what our forefathers have been engaged in in terms of worship, and you want to stop us from doing whatever we want with our own wealth. Maybe you paying too much. So what you do keep your prayers on one side and don't interfere with us. Divorce the dean from the dunya completely business is one thing and religion is something else. So you want to continue with religion. Keep it that side. Do not come in interfere with us here. May Allah safeguard us. This mentality and attitude has seeped right through to our generation of

00:26:01--> 00:26:39

people. Where you find the man may Allah safeguard us who might appear to be so religious he is in the masjid. He reads his Salah slowly, and he performs Salah beautifully when he goes out of the door. He's a big group. If you ask everyone this man, they say Watch out. May Allah safeguard us? If this is what is happening to us. How different are we from those people of Sri ballet salatu salam, we have divorced the deen and the dunya we think that we must only be Muslim when we come in the masjid. So Mashallah a person engaging in all forms of crime outside their economic crime, all forms of different crime outside the door when he comes into the masjid like he's a totally different

00:26:39--> 00:26:57

person. How can he do that? How can we allow ourselves but we sit and we read the story of shine, and we do not bat an eyelid we don't learn a lesson from it. Sometimes within ourselves in the masjid, we are very holy, Mashallah. And when we get out, it's another hole that appears. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us?

00:26:58--> 00:27:31

Really? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us every form of protection, we need to constantly be on guard from shaitaan shaitaan comes to us and he spoils our deeds and he contaminates our wealth. So srivalli salatu salam, when his people told him that is it your prayer that is making you stop us from doing what we want? It's our money. Who are you? Today also we have quite a similar mentality. When you hear the scholars have been saying this is not permissible. They say Who are they? This is our money, man. Our backs it's our money, everything belongs to us.

00:27:32--> 00:28:12

Have you heard that statement? May Allah safeguard us? No, we are Muslim mean we will return to Allah subhanho wa Taala without a penny, not one penny. Nobody's going to take any pennies in the grave with them. It is reported that many years ago, even the Chinese used to bury with all their wealth, all their money. So come one wisecrack and he says, Okay, I tell you what, all this is the money. Give it to me I put one check. And you give me all the cash. Mashallah. So those are the Chinese. One wonders whether that is true or it's just on a lighter note, but at the same time, the moral of it is we cannot fool people what is valuable is valuable when you go you will not take it

00:28:12--> 00:28:50

with you nothing. Not at all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Be careful. You see, when we earn we become greedy, greedy because we say to ourselves, no, I've earned enough. Now I must prepare for my children. And while we preparing for our children, like I said a few days ago, you find those same children are now on drugs, in the clubs and so on. What are we preparing for? We've lost the plot we supposed to have prepared a little bit and concentrate on the upbringing of your child spending time with your child quality time find yourself at home the Heidi says Lisa cabaye took your house should be brought for you unnecessarily don't go outside of the house. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect

00:28:50--> 00:28:57

us. But we don't understand when people tell us they say no Islam is too strict. While it is those rules that will make us succeed in life.

00:28:58--> 00:29:15

So here srivalli salatu wa sallam, he told him something very, very powerful. Why are Camila journeyman nakamichi poppy AUC bakhoum is no masaba tamanu in oma who didn't know Tomas masani wanna

00:29:17--> 00:29:41

be buried, all my people. The fact that you hate me so much your hatred for me should not lead you to receiving the punishment that came to the people of nor the people are the people of the mood, and the people of loot who are very nearby. So you might dislike me, but that must not mislead you from the right path. concentrate on what I'm saying.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

This is the revelation from Allah. Sometimes we have had a little problem with one of them. And we find we distance ourselves from all forms of goodness. So we block people from a lecture of Tafseer we block people from a lecture of Hadith. We block people from all forms of goodness thinking we are doing ourselves.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

The community a favor, not realizing that that is going to be our flag on the day of tiama Javi ladra to Fulani, blue Fulani, everyone will have a flag on their backs to say this is one of the main achievements or points of destruction in your life and those who have blocked the word and the work of Allah in any way, they will have a flag on their backs saying this is how this man deceived the oma Amazon Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And we see this live in front of our eyes where there are people shamelessly, who may call themselves very highly educated in terms of the of the dunya. And in terms of this world, but they have shamelessly fallen prey to Satan such that they have become

00:30:42--> 00:31:20

blinded just like the people of shrine, they think they are doing themselves a favor and the rest of the community a favor by when they have a problem with one person blocking, blocking it from the entire community blocking it from themselves, blocking it from everybody. Remember, that will be their sign on the day of the AMA. And they will be noticed from afar by everybody. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us all. Because the loss is for all here. There were a few very, very wealthy people, and the others who are making money through them, the others who are making money through them, we're all subservient to them. Like I said, a few days back, when you are earning

00:31:20--> 00:32:00

money through somebody, do not make him your God. When he tells you something that is wrong, it is wrong. Do not allow the man who is now putting money into your pocket to control your head and your brain and the way you live. Some people the rich man has a car they want a similar vehicle. Some people the rich man has a house they want a similar house. Why should we aim at that aim at the Sahaba llamando aim at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aim somewhere where the day we die, we die in a good condition. We heard about qarun yesterday when he died, those who wished that they had similar to him. They they hoped and prayed. In fact, they thanked Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, we

00:32:00--> 00:32:19

thank you, you did not give us this had you given it to us, we would have ended the same way this man ended. So Shyvana is salatu salam warns his people that look you might not like me. But that doesn't mean you must sit on every path and block everything and hinder and start threatening everyone. No, don't do that. Remember, it is Allah that you are fighting not me.

00:32:21--> 00:32:42

This is Troy and his message is loud and clear. We are going to come to more details of how they threatened him and how they threaten those who follow them. And how they try to persuade the people not to follow you I Valley salatu wa salam. And he was small in number, meaning he had very small numbers. Allah subhanho wa Taala says he told them,

00:32:43--> 00:33:20

I warn you of the punishment that will come to you similar to that of the previous nations. And he named all of them one after the other. And he says, the fact that you dislike me should not make you from amongst those who rejects the truth. The truth is the truth whether it came with me or with anyone else whom you dislike, the fact that it is the truth. There may be a point of your rejection by you being too arrogant to surrender to the truth, because Allah gave it to someone you didn't like. This was their problem was trial. They didn't like him. And when Allah gave him the goodness, and Allah gave him the message, they said, You are a man just like us. Why did Allah choose you over

00:33:20--> 00:33:38

all of us? We are wealthy, we should be calling the shots, not you. Now, it was not his fault that Allah chose him and gave him the religion. It was not his fault. It was not a crime of his It was a blessing of Allah and the test for them. And they failed their test dismally. May we not fail our tests dismally. May we learn a lesson from this?

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, he told him why, Mr.

00:33:45--> 00:34:04

matobo Li, oh my people, seek forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala seek forgiveness of Allah turn and repent to Allah before it is too late. You know what he says, in our be a haimo. This description is only in one place in the Quran.

00:34:05--> 00:34:15

srivalli salam describes Allah as the one who is most merciful, full of love, love Allah doo doo. This is the name.

00:34:16--> 00:34:46

He is most merciful, most loving. He loves you. You only need to turn to him. Allah loves all of us. We sometimes display our hatred towards Allah subhanho wa Taala by not obeying His instruction, but Allah is waiting for us. The Hadith says, Allah becomes so happy when the worshiper he thinks to him, so happy and the description is in the Hadith, it's a long description, we won't go there, but the happiness of Allah subhanho wa Taala when the slave

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

turns to him, may Allah make us those slaves who turned to Allah to make him happy. radi Allahu anhu Mara Diwan who he describes the Sahaba and he says, they have been pleased with Allah. Allah is pleased with them, may we also be from those

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, After that, they told you I although he was an orator, he could speak very clearly. pannonia shuaibu Mana tamuka mata kulu or in caffeine bar, in fact, they told him Oh sure, if we now don't understand what you're saying, How can you say this is not allowed? This is This allowed, we shouldn't be doing this trip. We now don't understand what you're saying. And you know what? You are so weak from amongst us, we will fix you up, we will sort you out. This is the mentality of all those who follow the devil. They want to sort out the people who call them towards goodness. Allah says in Surah, Allah imraan y ocho, tolonen, Lavina. Lucas, we mean

00:35:48--> 00:36:27

any, there are certain people who want to murder the prophets, and they've gone ahead and murdered them. And there are certain people who want to murder anybody who tells them something correct, which is against their whims and fancies, because of their haughtiness. They feel let's eliminate this man. Allah says, Let them be warned of a severe punishment, what is the most they will do? They will commit murder after that? What's going to happen? They will go to Allah as well. They will die Subhana Allah and then we are going to go May Allah subhana wa Taala protect us all May he make us from those who can surrender to what is right at all times. So Allah says, These people told him we

00:36:27--> 00:36:39

don't understand what you're saying, and you are a weakling you a week from amongst us, and they threatened him, but then they told him something. While Taka Narayan NACA,

00:36:44--> 00:37:06

if it wasn't for the small family, small family of yours, or a small number of people are rough is a small number of people who are following you. If it was not for the small number of people who are following you, we would have stone you to death A long time ago. So look at how Allah gives the righteous a small number of people to support them against the entire community.

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

And yet they are the ones who are rightly guided and the rest are wrong.

00:37:12--> 00:37:24

And Allah says, had it not been for the small group of people, they were threatening to stone shrine to death. So that small group was a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala even though it was small, but it was solid.

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of something even more important.

00:37:31--> 00:37:37

They threatened to now remove him because they couldn't stone him This was these were the threats. Call Allah.

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

Camila, no friedgen Acharya shaibu Valentina Manu Mara, Kamiya, con Latina,

00:37:47--> 00:38:29

female Latina, the haughty, Latina stick baru means those who are arrogant those who are very, very wealthy from amongst the community, they threatened tribe and those who believe they said we will kick you out of our community, we will kick you out of this place, we will disallow you we will ban you from this place, you and those who have followed you, we shall ban you from this place unless you return to us on our terms and follow again, whatever we command whatever we instruct that is when we will be happy with you and we will bring you back and that is when we will allow you to live in our midst. And that is when we will open the doors for you. Look at the statement. It is the

00:38:29--> 00:38:46

opening verse of the ninth chapter of the Quran. You can check it. They threatened shrine and those who followed him and they were just a handful. They said we are going to throw you out. We're going to kick you out. We're going to ban you these type of words. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant our Savior

00:38:48--> 00:39:05

What happened? They said you must come back if you come back we happy with you. He told him Allah Allah Hakuna, open, carry you want us to come back even against our own world. Even though you are thinking you you can get us there by force. No you won't.

00:39:06--> 00:39:12

God if tarina Allah He can even in northern Happy milotic.

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

Gentlemen,

00:39:16--> 00:39:33

we would have a clear fabrication against Allah and gone against Allah command and law if we had to come back to all that which you are believing in and your terms and your conditions after Allah has saved us from such filth.

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

So once Allah saved us, we don't want to go back, because going back is known as Allah how bad Elko or it is known as l&t casa, which means someone who goes back on their achievements Alhamdulillah when you have been granted the acceptance from Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have started reading your Salah, say a person for example, is weak and they are reading to Salah

00:40:00--> 00:40:33

is short, the day they start reading three they have solved part of the problem when they read four they have solved more of the problem and inshallah when they read five they have solved the matter but from five if they go down, it is now going back on what Allah has blessed you with. Allah bless you He gave you a gift. He showed you the path he let you taste what it feels like to be obedient. And after that you want to go back. This is why we say a month of Ramadan you achieve some people will come for Juma and jamara in Ramadan, and when it's outside Ramadan they neither read their Salah, nor are they coming in time for Juma.

00:40:34--> 00:41:14

You find when the Imam is about to finish, people are rushing in why it's the most important Salah come early. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. So this is why whenever we have a matter that needs to be solved, if you cannot solve all of it at one time, at least start a sister who's not dressing appropriately start somewhere start a little by little inshallah, ideally, we're supposed to have everything covered properly. But if we have not got that 10 feet from Allah yet, make dua to Allah and start somewhere and do not worry about what people will call you and what they will say they called all the ambia with dirty names and they called all the people with all

00:41:14--> 00:41:25

funny names, those who are righteous May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the sweetness of Eman such that when people laugh at us, it actually solidifies our resolve to be more on the right path.

00:41:27--> 00:41:38

So Allah subhana wa Jalla says they threatened him and after that he answered, and he told him how can we come back? Then he made a dua. Now it was enough. Why they told him

00:41:40--> 00:41:49

we want a piece of the sky to come to us. We want you to send a piece of the sky to ask if you are truthful.

00:41:51--> 00:42:32

Angela anakeesta from Minnesota in Minnesota, if you are truthful, we want a piece of the sky to fall on us. Now look at how foolish these people are. You know we are taught that if a person really wanted goodness, they could have said if you are truthful. Drop gold from the heaven. If you are truthful, we want to see Platinum all over here. But they are saying if you are truthful, we want to see punishment from the sky. Foolish are they? I think they needed our type of people here that Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, this generation now in the world, they will say right, if you are telling the truth, I want to see 10 Mercedes Benz s 60 threes outside they Allah subhanho wa

00:42:32--> 00:43:10

Taala grant us goodness, Allah will grant you more than that. May Allah protect us all and grant us Baraka in whatever he's gone to this. So try Bani Salam when he they told him that he raised his hands he says there was no solution. Because they were pulling one side he's pulling the other side. They threatening him they want to destroy him. He's telling them what's your business deals don't shortchange people do not be corrupt. Do not sit and block people don't think that your money will buy you everything and anything. They they used to think that their money can buy them everything. You know, sometimes you have wealth beyond a certain point where the wealthy person thinks right

00:43:10--> 00:43:20

that is it. Everyone is my slave when they walk in as though the ground is doing them a favor by Kiki by keeping them up. mela mela safe goddess, may Allah grant us well with humility.

00:43:22--> 00:43:33

Because Well, he's not bad. I always say well does not spoil you. All it does for you. It gives you an opportunity to show the true colors of yours the person you always will.

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

Why do we say that give you an example. When you working for someone?

00:43:39--> 00:43:44

You have to say Yes, sir. Yes, sir. He says get up at eight o'clock you'll be here. Why are you late to say I'm sorry, sir.

00:43:45--> 00:44:20

But in your heart, you want to sway him? You see. And in your heart, you want to tell him Who are you but you know, then your salad is going to be cut. So because he owes you money and because you depend on him for your salary, you respecting him, the day you have money equivalent to him, or more than him what happens? You can tell him, keep quiet. You live, I'll buy you out. These are the words or nobody can say anything. So it gives you an opportunity to now say who you always were and what you always wanted to say. That's what wealth does. Those who are good when they get wealth, they remain good

00:44:21--> 00:44:48

if they were good inside, but those who are evil inside and they never had that discipline and the Islam and the deed and o'clock when they get wealth, it just shows this is why they say certain people you don't hear them in community and society. The minute they have wealth, they the loudest mouth the most evil criminals of society why the money allows them to show their true colors May Allah distinguish those type of people from the rest and may He destroy them and extinguish their wealth as well unless he's to guide them.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

So here Allah subhanho wa Taala says srivalli Salah made a powerful drug and this drug can be made by all of us at any time. He says benefit by Nana Baba

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Amina bill hottie

00:45:03--> 00:45:13

fatty Oh Allah judge between us and our people in the proper correct manner with justice for you are indeed the most just of all.

00:45:14--> 00:45:28

So Allah judge between them that this side was wrong and that side was right. And Allah subhanho wa Taala sent them such a severe punishment. Look at the punishment. One day, Allah subhanho wa Taala for Cara boo,

00:45:29--> 00:45:31

boo me Lola

00:45:32--> 00:46:05

they belied the messenger and they belied the message. So Allah sent them darkness how law thick clouds came above them, covered the sun was a dark day, very, very dark. And Allah subhanho wa Taala stopped the A from moving, so no a moving, no wind moving nothing. So it became very, very humid, very, very hot. And there was cloud cover cloud. Imagine it's like a thermos flask. You've got a vacuum here, and it's just heat nothing else.

00:46:07--> 00:46:43

And after that humidity, Allah subhanho wa Taala struck them the same day. Allah subhanho wa Taala struck them with a tremor, a very powerful tremor. And as the tremor came and losses for that human Raja, the tremor overtook them. And Allah says in another place for a hottie Latina Bala Messiah, Latina Bala masahito for us bahuvida just me after that the awful cry over took him the awful cry the sound wave over to him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:46:45--> 00:46:46

no fee

00:46:47--> 00:46:58

as though they didn't even live in their dwellings. They died they on the spot on the spot, and what happened to their wealth to still lying there.

00:46:59--> 00:47:02

It was still lying there. And they were all gone.

00:47:03--> 00:47:18

Now, after they were gone, Allah subhanho wa Taala says they used to say that anyone who follows schreib and his people will be losers. Follow us. We will lead you to that which is good. You follow shame you will be the losers. Listen to the verse

00:47:19--> 00:47:36

wacol Allah vena cava Romeo Camila, any tobacco why even in Kumi de la co the disbelievers from that community used to say if you follow schreib then you will be from amongst the losers.

00:47:37--> 00:47:47

So now Allah subhanho wa Taala says after they were punished Allah says Allah vena cava Boucher Galilei fi alladhina camdeboo

00:47:48--> 00:48:19

can cause eating, those who belied Shoei were the ones who were destroyed in such a way that it felt as though they didn't even dwell in their dwellings. And the ones who belied. schreib were the ones who were the losers, and not the ones who are with you if they were the winners. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says two things thereafter, she went back to madeon he had gone out, punishment came he came back, and he'd seen them dead. And he addressed them and he says,

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

Yeah, Camila

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

to come. Risa Latina.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

doula come for K.

00:48:29--> 00:48:54

de la comida caffine Oh my people? Didn't I deliver the message and the reminders and the warnings to you? Didn't I deliver all the messages of Allah and my Rob to you, but may How do you now expect me to feel sorry, or to feel any form of pity for those who belied and those who denied

00:48:55--> 00:49:15

so he says, I'm not even feeling pity for these people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Then Allah uses one very powerful term to describe how he destroyed these people. And to describe the result and the outcome. Allah says, Allah denley magic mediana comma

00:49:18--> 00:49:26

indeed we got rid of the people of medion in the similar way that we got rid of the people of the mood we got rid of them.

00:49:27--> 00:49:59

Look at that. Allah is saying burden burden meaning far away Away with them, we got rid of them in a similar way that we got rid of the people of some May Allah subhanho wa Taala never do that to us. We've learned powerful lessons inshallah. Tomorrow we will continue with the end of moose Allah is salat wa salam life, see how he passed away and continue into the other messengers with the idea of completing insha Allah the eve of the 29th May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah
