set them on a little by your

00:00:10--> 00:00:14

shopping and via your city. Maybe now Habibi never

00:00:16--> 00:00:18

had a new either he was happy he

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

didn't want to sleep.

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

All praise and thanks we don't mind your loss anymore Tyler who is our Creator sustainer nareesha. Protect and cure, we asked allies to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved Prophet Mohammed Solomon mileiq earning his family members his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of them.

00:00:46--> 00:01:19

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the online viewers, television viewers, I welcome you all to day six of the messengers series, where we hope to discuss the story of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, but before I delve into the story, I would like to remind myself and then all of you all, that this life that Allah Subhana Allah has given us is something very, very short. It is a temporary transitory stage that we are crossing over. Our destination is

00:01:20--> 00:02:08

where we shall dwell there in forever and ever. So this is a temporary short stage that we are crossing. So at times, we face difficulties, we face challenges in life, and all of this has been decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. These challenges these difficulties, and just as how this worldly life is short, the challenges and difficulties are also short lived. They're very short lived, and a lost behind him a diamond knows best what is good for an individual as he states now you can leave Allahu nevsun in Lusaka, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not burn a soul more than that soul can endure Eliza but you will never burn a soul more than that which that soul can endure.

00:02:08--> 00:02:49

Because at times when we go through difficulties and challenges, we tend to question Allah subhanho wa Taala we tend to question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is very wrong. Because we as believers, we as slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala who believe in other we should know that trials and challenges are from Allah Subhana Medina, and most of the time, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, these trials are blessings in disguise. This is something that we fail to understand because we have got weak minds, we find it difficult to understand the plight of Abbas Anahata. So at times what looks like a challenge at face value, what looks like a trial at face

00:02:49--> 00:03:35

value can be a blessing in disguise later on. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes only Allah Medina knows a lot. So Virgil is the best planner. So we need to go through these challenges we need to struggle because after all, these files have a lifespan of Medina, they punish us to the better. They prepare us for something more bigger. We don't we cannot see the big picture. Allah Subhana Allah knows the big picture. We because we are weaklings, where we human beings, we find it difficult to comprehend the big picture. So these trials, these challenges that have lost hand and what Allah puts us through, they mold us, they prepare us they punish us to the better. And they if

00:03:35--> 00:04:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala puts you to a trial My dear brother, Oh my dear sister, you need to understand that your sins have been forgiven. You are securing a great place in Alaska. If you go through that fryer with patience, without questioning a lot without questioning the degree of a lot. There can be an ample variety of trials, sicknesses, financial loss, the loss of a beloved one you could lose someone or maybe your parents, your spouse, your children, sicknesses can relate to you or your family. If you go through these challenges with patients not questioning a line of questioning the decree of Allah subhana wa Tada. We will have a great reward in store for us insha

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

Allah will guide

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

you see the when you look at the when you study the

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

the the formation of a butterfly. It goes through something known as metamorphosis. How does it start off it starts off as what a caterpillar a caterpillar black color or you know you have great color caterpillars. When you keep a caterpillar and a butterfly, a butterfly something so beautiful. I mean you have a variety of colors on the wings of a butterfly, but when you keep it right next to a caterpillar, those two are in complete contrast. They look so different, but it is the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. And how this is happening goes through different stages. At one point it will build itself as silk

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

Hoon, a silk cocoon and it will go inside it, it will remain in the cocoon for some time and after which it will transform itself by the will of Allah Subhana Medina and break out as a beautiful butterfly. There is a story about this metamorphosis There was once a young boy who found a caterpillar in his garden, a caterpillar. He took this Caterpillar put it in a bottle, a young boy, and he went and showed it to his mother and he asked his mother, Mom, can I keep this with me? I just want to have it as a pet. Mother said okay, why not? Of course. So this boy, he kept this Caterpillar with him in his bedroom. He used to feed it leaves because caterpillars that eat leaves.

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

He kept a little twig branch with leaves inside it.

00:05:39--> 00:06:22

And the caterpillar was with this boy for some time. After a period of time, after a few days, he finds the caterpillar missing. He looks at the bottle, he turns around, and then he finds an under the branch under the leaf. The caterpillar had spun a silk cocoon, and it was inside the cocoon. Now the boy was excited, because when he was wondering where the caterpillar went, and he was wondering, what's this new cocoon that has formed under the niche, he runs and shows it to his mother. Then his mother explains to him that Look, my son, this is how it is. The butterfly is going through a stage of transformation, the caterpillar is going through a stage of transmit transformation, and in a few

00:06:22--> 00:07:03

days it will emerge as a beautiful butterfly. But the boy was excited because he wanted to see this beautiful butterfly. So every single day he kept studying the cocoon. After a few days, he notices that there is a small break at the top of the cocoon, and he can see something fine to wriggle out something trying to break a small hole and find to come out and he kept observing it and he saw this creature inside the cocoon, struggling to come out it was trying to make the hole bigger and come out but there was a huge struggle. There was a huge struggle that was going on for the butterfly to break the cocoon and come out. He could not contain his excitement. And he thought Oh, the poor

00:07:03--> 00:07:48

little thing is struggling to come out. Let me help the butterfly. He quickly runs and he gets himself a pair of scissors. He comes in he opens the he makes the hole bigger. He opens the hole in the cocoon and the butterfly pops out. But then he looks at it and it looks so weird. He was expecting a beautiful butterfly with slender, colorful wings. But out popped a small and looking Caterpillar with legs and ugly you know wings. He thought okay, perhaps it would take some time for the wings and the wings all look slimy and wet. So he thought maybe it will take some time for the wings to fly out and then maybe the butterfly butterfly will start flying around. Days fast and the

00:07:48--> 00:08:28

butterfly never flew. The wings never formed. It always look wet and slimy. He was heartbroken. He went and told his mother about it. And then his mother smiles. The mother takes the boy to his professor, his teacher and the teacher explains to the boy, my dear son, the butterfly has to go through a complete stage of transformation. And for that that struggle is necessary. You did not allow the butterfly to complete its transformation you try to help the butterfly but in reality, it resulted in the butterfly not forming completely. In other words, he was explaining to the boy that a struggle is necessary. So likewise, like the butterfly is many brothers and sisters in Islam, you

00:08:28--> 00:09:06

and I we need to struggle, we need to go through trials, we need to go through challenges because these trials these challenges are the things that form us that Polish as to the better. We need to learn from every mistake of ours. We need to learn from every mistake of us say for example, if you were to fall into a pit once, you must be careful that Henceforth you don't fall into the same thing again, you learn from your mistakes, you learn from your mistakes, you gain experience through all of that. So these are the purposes of Allah subhanho wa Taala putting us through trials and challenges. So we must never ever question the will of Allah subhana wa Jalla we must never ever

00:09:06--> 00:09:42

question the decree of Allah azza wa jal And likewise, we should not be judgmental of others. You know, you and I, each one of us, we are all fighting our own battles. We are all fighting our own battles. At times, you may smile at me, I may smile at you but I don't know the difficulties, the challenges that you are going through, nor do you know the difficulties and challenges that I am going through. So we must never ever be judgmental of others. You know, when you look at someone, perhaps you didn't make it to the masjid and you start you know, judging him. Allah is the best of judges.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

We start judging him you know, it's a month of Ramadan. Why is India coming to the masjid? You know, I'm in the masjid. I'm praying on the first row, but this guy, he doesn't come to the masjid. We're very quick to judge others. We're very quick to judge others. We never give them the benefit of the doubt. We never make excuses for them. We don't even think of

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

putting ourselves into their shoes, perhaps, you know, maybe he was not feeling well. Maybe he was feeling a bit tired after a long day of fasting. We never tried to make excuses. Instead, we are quick to judge. Remember that Allah is the best of judges. We're not supposed to judge. We're not supposed to judge Allah will judge everybody on the day of them. He is the best of judges, you and I were not judges, nor can we judge a book by its cover. That's what we are doing. We're judging books by their covers. We don't know what's in the heart of that individual. In reality, he may be closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala than us and because we are judgmental, and at times this judgmental

00:10:38--> 00:11:18

thoughts, these judgmental thoughts lead us to backbiting about that individual gossiping about the individual, maybe we are with friends and we start talking bad about that individual you know, we are all in the masjid but he hasn't come to the masjid is not here for salado turabian or he's not here for Salatin, federal auto harasser, we start backbiting and by doing that, we are actually what is Allah subhanho wa Taala state? Are you? Are you him? I do Can I hear coolala McAfee himanta Will any one of you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother for carry to move, you will dislike it you will hate it. You will not like to eat the flesh of your dead brother. But when you back by when you

00:11:18--> 00:12:01

gossip about others, this is what you're doing. You are eating his dead flesh and you are giving your hard earned good deeds to him. And if you don't have good deeds, you are going to burn yourself with his sins. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all. We have better things to do, we need to prioritize. The problem the Muslim woman is facing today is that it is not the man at large. We do not understand or we don't know how to prioritize. We need to prioritize this life is short, the answer is the priority. Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is the priority, we need to give him priority. But instead we're giving the worldly life priority we are giving these materialistic possessions

00:12:01--> 00:12:17

priority. There was once a scholar who looked at his students. And he said I want to show you all an example. He took a jar, he took a bottle, a glass jar, okay? And he put into rocks, two big rocks.

00:12:18--> 00:12:37

And when he put in the two big rocks, two huge rocks, it filled up the jar. Okay. Then he showed it to his students and said students, what do you think is the jaffle are not too huge wrongs, say a job this size. And he put into huge rocks. The students all said Yeah, yes, of course the jar is full professor.

00:12:38--> 00:13:21

Then the scholar took a few tiny pebbles and started putting it into the jar because there are a few gaps in the in the corners. And the pebbles went in. And he filled up all the tiny gaps. And then he looked at the students and said, Now what do you think is the job for this one says yes, the jar is full. Then he took some fine sand, fine sand, and he started to put the sand into the jar. Now sand can trickle into places where tiny pebbles can go yes or no. So the sand started to trickle in. And he fooled the job. And he looked at the students and said, Now students, what do you think of the job, they said the jar is full. Now what is inside the jar, two huge rocks, tiny pebbles and sand.

00:13:21--> 00:14:03

Now the scholar goes on to explain to the students about prioritizing. He said that the two rocks are the most important things in your life a lot in Alaska, the two big rocks, the tiny little pebbles and those two rocks, Allah and Alaska you cannot do without those two priorities. Allah and Alaska. If you don't have a life, you don't have your focus on an alpha, you are ruined. And even if you are ruined in this life, you must make sure that you're not ruining the asset because that is where you're going to live forever and ever here maybe we may live for 40 5060 7080 years. If you are 30 years old. Maybe you have got another 30 to 40 years to live on the face of this earth. That

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

is if Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed that you live that long. If not, you might go even before that.

00:14:09--> 00:14:40

So the two big rocks Allah and Allah Farah, the tiny pebbles, your family, your children, your worldly things. And then the sand are all the other little little little things. You know your vehicles, your houses, your pastime, your recreational activities. And then the teacher went on to say, take out all these things. Take out all the pebbles, the rocks, the sand from the bottle, and you can fill the jar, the jar is time. You can fill the jar if you want with sand alone.

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

If you pour in sand, if I stopped putting in sand I can fill the jar with sand and will I be able to put any pebbles Will I be able to put the two big rocks so it's all about prioritizing. If you give priority to the sand, the tiny little things you won't have time for Firstly, the two big priority

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Allah Allah Hara you won't have time for the tiny pebbles, your family your children. Yeah you Halina hamanako and fusa como la coonara. Or you will believe Save yourselves and your families from the fire of Johanna, if you don't prioritize, if you just give priority to the sand, the recreational activities, the leisure activities, to all those little little things, time will slip away from within your fingers and you will not have time for the two major priorities Allah and His messenger said about while you and He will send them in an era now where you have time for the tiny little pebbles which are your family, your health, perhaps the life that you have here. So my dear

00:15:37--> 00:16:18

brothers and sisters in Islam, let us prioritize it has fixate our focus on to Allah subhanho wa Taala and after it has worked towards securing a very, very good life and and after May Allah Subhana Allah help us to do so. Now coming back to the stories of the Prophet sallahu wa Salatu was Salam. We mentioned yesterday that after the flood, we were discussing the story of new highly misurata salaam. And we said that after the flood, the people that remained for all the children have no highlighting salatu salam, the people that remain with the children have no highlighting salatu salam because the other children of Adam AlLahi salatu salam all destroyed and the ones who

00:16:18--> 00:17:01

remained were no highlight is Salatu was Salam viously and his nation. In other words, the children have no highlighting Serato setup. Now these individuals after no hunting, so that was when he also mentioned the New Hollywood Serato surrounding he lived for a period of 1700 years. Right after the flood he lived for about 300 odd years. And after that, after Nohara his rat was slammed his comb his nation, they remained a bone to read upon the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for some time, until there came a nation called Art. There came a nation called Art and this nation they live in a hall.

00:17:02--> 00:17:23

If you go to the forum, you will find that there is a surah a complete surah known as a cough. They lived in a house where was a puff puff is translated as the wind curb sand hills. They used to live by the sand hills sand dunes, a very barren, Rocky desert area.

00:17:24--> 00:17:43

So in this nation, they lived there. They were a proud and arrogant nation. And they were the first individuals after the flood of the new Jaime salatu salam from the progeny of no Highland misurata ceram They were the first individuals to start to commit ship once again.

00:17:44--> 00:18:30

They started to associate partners unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. Chandon succeeded in misleading them. As they started to come and ship, they started to worship idols in place of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They started to associate partners and to allies, the Virgin Islands behind Medina taala sends a profit to them now. And this profit was an error. He was an Arab, his name was who he was an Arab in the sense he used to speak Arabic the language of the Arabs, and he was sent to them by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's because at that time, there were like, say, if we take the profits before, for example, Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and other prophets even though Malaysia that was a

00:18:30--> 00:18:44

that was a possibility that they could have been conversing in other languages in other languages, but who the enemy Serato Sam was the first Prophet, in the sense the first Arab prophet alayhi salatu salam, then he was

00:18:46--> 00:19:25

the son of Sharla. The son of our farfetched, the Son of Sam, we mentioned yesterday, Sam, the son of new Elena salat wa salam. He was the son of Charlene, the son of alpha fish, the Son of Sam, the son of known Allahu salatu wa sallam. He was sent to the people of ad and like we mentioned, they were an arrogant, boisterous and stubborn nation. They thought that they were the greatest and the strongest of the progeny of new Hideki Salatu was salam o. Allah azza wa jal talks about them in suitable fetcham

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

and Latina mula permit lo halfin.

00:19:42--> 00:19:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala States did you Oh Mohammed said a long while you were early you were sending them not see how you Lord how Allah subhanho wa Taala dealt with the people of Allah tala ke firfer Allah

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

did you not see how Allah subhanho wa Taala dealt with the people of iron

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

eromanga Tila ima de Iran. Iran is the name of one of their predecessors one of the great grandfather's Iran, Iran,

00:20:11--> 00:20:28

Iran, and they were tall like lofty pillars. They were like lofty pillars. They were creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala who thought that they were the strongest because they were created in such a way. They were tall and taba, fully built, like lofty pillars.

00:20:29--> 00:20:39

I let the love you've loved me through harfield Beloved, and Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Creator Himself states, the likes of which were not created in the land.

00:20:40--> 00:21:23

In the sense, there were they were uncommon. They were tall and powerfully built. And they were not like the other children of new Haile salatu salam. And that's why they thought of themselves as unique as singular, and they thought of themselves as special. And they were very arrogant and boisterous about it. Who the AlLahi salatu salam now starts inviting the people of God to add to the heat to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala he kept on inviting them to allies overjet he kept on admonishing them advising them return back to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal mentioned this when he states what he learned I didn't know for whom who taught me I

00:21:25--> 00:22:16

mean in in your own hands on Allah subhanho wa Taala states and to add will add in a call whom who the end to add we sent their brother who will enter added a home holder and to the people of add we sent from one of them rude now this was from the sooner Allah subhanho dialer. And don't be surprised just as how it all sort of I said about you might think that Suna is something only for a sort of a sort of long winded center. But when you translate so NASA is a manner of doing something is a way of doing things. Even allies of a gel has Suna one and Taiji that listen Mattila de de la you will never ever find a change in the way Allah subhanho wa Taala does things so it was from the

00:22:16--> 00:22:23

Sundar mythos behind him more data when that when he used to send prophets he used to send profits from their own cow

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

from their own corner know howdy salatu salam wa

00:22:30--> 00:23:09

sallam he was from the from his own tribe from his own nation, from his own nation, some silence from his own nation as we will study inshallah Allah, Allah azza wa jal generally used to appoint a profit from a particular nation, an individual who belonged to the very same nation that he was sending the profit to. This was from the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The reason being so that the account relates to them better, so that the nation would relate to them better instead of a foreigner instead of someone else, a stranger coming in and trying to advise them and remind him about Allah Subhana Medina, if one of them was appointed, they would relate to him better it would

00:23:09--> 00:23:45

be easier, they would understand him better. They would relate to him better This was from the sooner Allah subhana wa jal as he stayed try the wider add in a horrible mood. So to add we sent one of their own, his name was rude color, and he says yeah homie, bajo la la comunidad Coronavirus como my nation or Buddha Morocco Mila Navarro, worship Allah subhana wa Jalla Mata Camila Coronavirus and you have no other God other than Allah subhana wa gyla I felt that the pool and will you not adopt?

00:23:47--> 00:23:57

Will you not fear Allah? Will you not be conscious of Allah Subhana Medina, he admonishes them he advises them to turn back to Allah subhana wa dyne.

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

But sadly,

00:24:03--> 00:24:44

their reply, the reply of the people of God was similar to the reply of the people have no and this is where shaitaan generally succeeded with these nations to mislead them to reply back to the prophets of Allah in a very stubborn and arrogant way. So just like we discussed in the story of new Hollings that was about how the people of know, replied very harshly back to the highlight of salatu salam, the people of ad did the very same thing called Alma will Latina cafaro mean homie he in LA caffeine in

00:24:45--> 00:24:46


00:24:48--> 00:24:50

00:24:53--> 00:24:53


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

Naka, Mina DB in Palmyra

00:25:00--> 00:25:49

The leaders of the town of the town of iron. They said at the from the people who disbelieved. They said in Iraq a piece of wearily we see we see in you suffer madness, foolishness we see in you, oh, who madness and foolishness. We're in another no cabinet Academy, and we think that you are a liar. We think that you are from the liars. Now what's, you know, strange and amazing here, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, that even after knowing what happened to the people of North la Salatu was Salam. I mean, I'm sure that the story would have been handed down to them. They were not that far away from New Holly saragosa land in terms of generations, but still, after witnessing such

00:25:49--> 00:26:11

a great sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Such a great punishment from Allah azza wa jal, they forgot about it. They forgot about it. They forgot about last winter Island. And now when a profit has come in front of them, they reply just as how the people have no reply to no holiday. So that was around what did they say? They said, We see a Bala in your misguidance in you.

00:26:13--> 00:26:38

If you see that you are making a grave error. This is what they said to do an extra column, the column of add the nation of ad, they went on to say that we see that you are mad that you are foolish, and we see that you are a liar. But just is how no Haile salatu salam replied very calmly. Rude Allah is Raja Salam replies to them very calmly. Carla, Amina SMBs

00:26:39--> 00:27:26

Oh my nation, there is no foolishness in me. I'm not mad, nor am I a fool wakeeney raso Mirabella Allah alamy berada I am a messenger what I can near also Rama, Rama I mean, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the word. So many brothers and sisters in Islam. We mentioned two prophets so far no Holly salatu salam and Booz Allen Serato. Sara, if you were if you were to analyze, like I said on the very first day, these stories are not to keep us ever used. The stories are not to keep us entertained until the time of the Raja lapada chinafy. apostle see him Eva. Allah subhanho wa Taala states that in their stories and the stories of the prophets, stories of the poor and stories of the

00:27:26--> 00:27:27

nations of the past.

00:27:29--> 00:27:40

There are lessons to be derived for whom and for the ones who have intellect for the ones who have intelligence. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open the doors of understanding for all of us. I mean,

00:27:41--> 00:28:21

so we need to study the methodology of the prophets, Allah him salatu salam, how they reply back to their people. And this is why I started off with challenges and trials. We all go through challenges. Say you are on the field of Dawa, you're calling people to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Trust me, it's not going to be a bed of roses. It's not all rosy as how some people think you may have to go through certain challenges. You may have to go through trials, people may look down upon you, they may mock at you. They may make fun of you. But still you must persist. You must be consistent. Because after a look at the prophets, you can Ohara Serato, Psalm 950 years, he went

00:28:21--> 00:28:42

through this ordeal and he went through this struggle. And he kept on persisting he was consistent. Why? Look at our own Beloved Prophet Mohammed said Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, look at how many challenges he sort of had to go through his own people, the Quraysh they chased him out of his motherland, where he was born, not supervised, while you send them.

00:28:43--> 00:28:46

The people of toy if they stoned him, they chased him.

00:28:48--> 00:29:32

But he was patient, he built patience. He was calm, and he persisted on his mission. So we as the followers of Mohammed said a long while ago it was send them we must be patient, we must be patient and we must persist on what we are doing. We must stay upon goodness and others mechanical data help us all to do so. So no, so who the hell he said that was around he replies laser beam, I will actually Nero pseudo mirror behind me. And then he goes on to say goodbye live Welcome rissalah to be with him now. Stefan, I mean, I convey unto you the messages of my Lord obelisco Kumari, sila to be I convey unto you the messages of my Lord will another coat NASA from amin and I am a trustworthy

00:29:32--> 00:29:47
