Mashallah, okay, let me tell you something. One day there was a prophet, I am going to tell you a story. I'm going to tell you a story and I want you to tell me which Prophet it was okay. One day there was a prophet. And he told his people worship Allah alone. Wait, wait, hang on, hang on. Hang on. All the prophets said the so far worship Allah alone. Why worship Allah, I can tell you why worship Allah. People come and say why should they worship Allah? Well, look, how old are you? He's eight. Where was he?
Nine years ago. He's only eight years old. Where was he? Nine years ago? Yes.
No, nine years. He was only in his mom's stomach for nine months. But one whole year before that. Where was he? Yes. In Jana. Okay. Put your hands down. She said in Jana. What she means he was with Allah. You were with Allah nine years ago, if I'm 50. Now 51 years ago, I was with Allah. Right? If I was with Allah, I want to ask you a question, say, if I'm going to die at 70, right? Where will I be? 71 when I'm sick when I'm supposed to be 71? I'd be I'd be back with Allah. Right? So I came from Allah. I'm here on earth for a short time, and I'm going to go back to Allah amazing. So while I'm here, I need to worship who made me and who made me. So that's why we worship Allah. So when
people say, Why do you worship Allah say, well, he made me before I was born, I was with him. And after I die, I'm going to go back to him. So while I'm here, I'm going to worship Him. So the prophets all said, worship Allah alone. Now, you know the reason, right? Right? Because I came from him, I'm going to go back to him. And then what they said, the same prophet says that you must do good, you must respect others. You must not lie. You must not cheat and steal, you must not harm people. That's what the Prophet said. And then some of the people were so naughty. They were so bad. They used to steal and cheat. They used to rob they used to do all sorts of things. They were
unruly, put your hands down, put your hands down. And then
this prophet was there for so many years, not 10 years, not 20 years, more than 100 years, more than 200 years, more than 500 years, more than 900 years. Who was this prophet?
