I don't even have the logo behind me and also there was Noah Rasulullah Mohammed was early he was a big marine was selling with a Sleeman Kathira mobile Subhanak Romana in Ireland tonight in Atlanta him Hakeem officially today we're silly Emily was Emily Saniflo Alia My bad. So inshallah we continue today with minor signs of the Day of Judgment inshallah today and next week but hopefully by next week inshallah we will finish off with a minor signs of the Day of Judgment and we will jump straight to the major signs of the day judgment, which are very few. But inshallah we'll do that next week the week after inshallah today, I want to continue where we left off from last week, I

00:01:31--> 00:01:41

remember last week we're talking about one of the signs of the Day of Judgment is the loss of honesty is the loss of honesty, and how there will come a time excuse, okay?

00:01:48--> 00:02:30

There will come a time that people will not trust one another. And people will make vows with one another, but they will not come through in those vows. People will make promises with one another, but they will not fulfill those promises. And eventually, when you have a society where people are mistreating each other people are lying to each other, even the ones who are saying the truth, even the ones who are saying the truth, eventually there is no that people don't trust even them anymore. I remember I had a brother who came to me he said to me, that there is a brother who is telling me that I'm making a promise to you and I swear upon the Quran, and he says that because there is so

00:02:30--> 00:03:11

much lying in our society, I don't know who to trust anymore. I want to trust his brother, or I may want to trust his sister. But because there's so much treachery and cheating in the community or in the society at large. I don't know who to trust. And so this is the biggest flaws, or this is what happens in a community. When few people they begin to lie that even those who are considered as trustworthy, no one begins to no one wants to believe in them. Brothers and sisters, even when it comes to our own children, we have to be very open and honest with our own children too. If I make a promise with my own children that I need to come through in that promise, too. I remember Imam

00:03:11--> 00:03:58

Bukhari I was reading about this Imam Muhammad Allah Allah He had a very strict rule when it came to accepting a hadith, because if you look at the conditions that Imam Buhari had in place, the conditions Imam Muslim had in place to accept a hadith in their famous collection. There were very strong criterias and very strict rules. Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah LA, he traveled throughout many places, just for one Hadith, he went one place the two and in search of a hadith. And you have to understand that it was not like okay, they went to one person, and they will just take a hadith. Well, what they will do is, they would go to one person, find out the entire Senate, the entire

00:03:58--> 00:04:45

chain of narrators. And if they could, they would go and visit every single person who was in that chain of narrators. It just so happened that Imam Muhammad, Allah, Allah he came across a man who was considered as a narrator in the chain of narrators. And he saw that he was telling his animal I think about this, this is the criteria that human body has with his own book, he saw that this man he was calling his own animal, and he would you know, he took food, and he will do this to his own animal. And as soon as the animal came close, he put away the food he got hold the animal and he tied up his animal. When a man Buhari saw that he decided not to take a Hadith from that person,

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

because that is in itself dishonesty, even dishonesty with an animal. That is something that you Maha Imam Muhammad did not even accept. Now imagine at times, you and I we make promises to our family members. We make promises

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

To our relatives, we made promises to our own community members, because we don't want to hurt someone else. But I honestly tell you, you rather not make a promise if you feel like you cannot fulfill a promise. Do not even make the promise from before. Because it is more hurtful when you make a promise, and you don't come through, you don't come through. So that's why this isn't one of the most important things. And if we do is, if we do this, if we are honest, our kids will be honest, if we are dishonest, our kids will be dishonest. I remember a long time ago, you know nowadays we have cell phones, we don't have many ain't very few of us, we have those home phones.

00:05:41--> 00:06:21

But there were times like when people would call and children will see their own parents that they're the people are calling and say is such and such person of the house available. And the father is answering the phone, the mother's answering the phone, the father is sitting over there. And she say that the Father is not here. The kids see that. Even though you might tell your kids that I said this for this reason. But that this honesty even in that die is something that the children they see. So this is something that we need to understand that honesty does not only mean that I'm talking to someone or I make promises, honesty has to be across the board. Now, some of the

00:06:21--> 00:07:02

other signs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he has talked about, which is the next one is imitating others. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we see this in the Quran being talked about. We see this in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There's a hadith narrated by a Buddha or the ALLAH and he says that the Prophet alayhi salam said, the Hour will not begin until my ummah follows the way of those who came before it. Hand span by hand span cubed my cubed. It was then as Otis was so long while he was sitting, I'm like the Persians and the Romans, he said, Who are the people except those this is mentioned in several body. There's another Hadith narrated

00:07:02--> 00:07:44

by also that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, you will follow the ways of those who came before you hand span by hand span of cubed by Cuban even if they were to enter the whole ever lizard, you will follow them. We asked Otis was Allahu Allah yourself? Do you mean the Jews and the Christians? He said, Who else? Now what does this exactly mean? This does not exactly mean that if I share information with others, or benefiting from others, that is not what this hadith is mentioning. If you actually study the history of the Bani Israel, even if you say the history of the Christians Long, long ago, this is something that has been highlighted in certain Fatiha to when

00:07:44--> 00:08:25

Allah subhanaw taala says right in my Dubya, Allah Humala, Bollin, Alma Dubya, Allah him, as you see many too far see it, they it is written that this is in reference to the Jews, is it not only reference to the Jews, or well of barley is reference to the Christians. That's not what it is. What this means is that of Dubya, Allah him is in reference to those people who had knowledge, but they had no iman, when you said he about bunnies saw in, they had immense amount of knowledge, but there was no omul when you said he will have galim in reference to the Christians, they had a lot of iman, but no, no, they will do a lot. But because of their lack of knowledge, they went astray. And they

00:08:25--> 00:09:08

began to believe that essentially your son was the son of or he was a son of Allah. And not only that, but people believe and worship Him as God to nowadays. So what Islam is teaching us is that there are some certain things that you will learn throughout their traditions, how the compromise in their religion, how they began to do things, and they felt inferior of what they had. And they began to accept other people's cultures and identities, and they would manipulate their own identities. Now brothers and sisters, when it comes to our own Deen, there are some certain things that we have in terms of our pay that we believe in those things. There is no compromise there. However, there

00:09:08--> 00:09:50

are some certain things especially living in this country, we have to understand that these other influences are slowly and gradually penetrating our own deen and our own lives here. For example, let's take one example that did not happen so long ago. We are in February, and December we're talking about Christmas. The Christmas is everywhere around us. Outside you go to Walmart, you see trees everywhere you see Christmas decorations. Everywhere you go. You see this? How many of our Muslim brothers and sisters in the season of Christmas as it was taking place? We're celebrating Christmas. Believe it or not. You may believe that how many I mean, do Muslims really do celebrate

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

Christmas? The answer is that there are many Muslims. There are many Muslims who are now starting to believe that this is this even though yes, they believe

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

If that this is the night where he saw that his son was born, we don't believe in that. But the fact that we want to use this night to exchange gifts, we want to put a tree in our house. You know how many Muslims did this? So many Muslims did this. This is exactly what you talk about imitating others. There are some certain rules in our deen, as I said earlier, and we cannot cross those. When it comes to FIP. There are some things that you can you know, if you said he fit in the history of FIP and qualify Ross you don't and how they gave fatawa. It's a long, it's a science that I cannot get into right now. There was some Fatah was given in different countries than other countries based

00:10:36--> 00:11:14

on their own situation. But never, never didn't. Muslims began to imitate the practices of the Jews and the Christians. And what happens is that when we're living in America, this slowly and gradually becomes part of our own practice. And people are doing this. And we need to teach our own children that we cannot do these kind of things. Even something so simple as Halloween trick or treating. Trick or treating is not something that our Muslim kids should be involved in. But yet you see so many Muslim parents, they will say, I'm not going to I'm not going to dress them up. I'm not going to, I'm not going to let them buy a costume. But let them go outside and enjoy trick or treating.

00:11:15--> 00:11:56

Now I asked you, if today we are allowing our own kids trick or treating, let's go outside, let's go have fun. It's only candy, you know, if it's only candy, go buy them candy if you want to, but do not let them engage in this kind of activities. Because today they are. They're going on they're going door to door. They're knocking on doors they want they're asking for candy today is this tomorrow is going to be a thought that I should buy a costume. The year after that is going to be a costume. And then this is a snowball that never ends is going to get bigger and bigger. And eventually we're going to lose our deen if we don't hold on to our deen. So that's why, excuse me

00:11:56--> 00:12:31

this is why it's very very important that when it comes to our matters of our deen, we have to be very strict about them. We have to stick to what our deen teaches us. And we should never imitate. In subtle Kaffee rune This is a Surah that we recite many of us will recite all Yeah, you will care for your own law. I will do matter I will soon what is the history behind sort of the caffeine when they came to Rasulullah sallallahu it was something they said okay, you know what? You're not going to listen to us. Okay? You're not going to give up Allah subhanho wa Taala you're not going to give Dawa. So let's make a deal. You know, let's make a deal. One time or one year or one month or one

00:12:31--> 00:13:11

week, we will worship your God. And then the next week you worship our God or it was monthly basis or yearly basis. Sudden as you worship our God and somebody will worship your God will Yeah, you will care for your own law Abu domata Abu dune wala and tomorrow I'll be doing both at the very end with ALLAH SubhanA se le comm Dino camaleon. In this is your deen and this is my team. I'm not going to I'm not going to bring new things into my deen and eventually lose my Deen. So this is something that's extremely important that we see. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he has told us about this now the next thing that the Prophet saw something he has told us about, which is really

00:13:11--> 00:13:31

something that's, that's really out of our hand in some capacity, which is sudden death. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This is a heavy rain about NSmen and Malika Yolanda I know he says that the Prophet already has some says the one the signs of the hour is that there will be an increase in sudden death. Now what this means is that long time ago, for example,

00:13:32--> 00:14:08

whether it's sudden death or how some other man they have explained it that a person is healthy one minute and all of a sudden they're they're unhealthy or they're extremely sick the next second, how many cases have we heard? One person is one person is absolutely fine. They're moving about. They're feeling, you know, a little pain in their stomach, they get taken to the hospital, they have cancer. How many stories that we heard like this, so many stories, how many stories that we heard a person was traveling on the road accident, one accident, you know, finish there, they've had to wait, we are hearing so many of these kinds of cases, this is actually a sign are told to us by Rasulullah

00:14:08--> 00:14:16

sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, one thing is that we should not we should not consider it. A

00:14:17--> 00:14:57

we should not consider sudden death as a misfortune. Like if we hear a case where a youngster or a man was driving or sister was driving, all of a sudden they got hit. Someone came in hit them we should not view that as a misfortune. Because in that situation, they're considered as a shaheed. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, he would ask refuge from a sudden death and the reason why the prophets had some he was seek refuge from a sudden death is because he would prefer that he wouldn't get sick. And then later on, he would die. Because during that sickness, he's able to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and do as much as he can in the last days that will

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

benefit him in the Quran. But once

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

Again, we should not think it as a misfortune if anyone passes away in a certain way. The next one that has been told to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that there will be a discord amongst the Muslims. If you remember, there was once the Prophet sallallahu ala he was somebody he was making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala he made three do is to Allah subhanho wa Taala were the three dwarfs anyone led my own might not

00:15:28--> 00:16:11

be completely finished by one ruler, then my OMA not die or suffer from a famine and the third one was there my OMA not divide enough fight amongst themselves. The two first to do as were accepted, the third one was not accepted. Now a lot of Muslims they believe that if the dua of the Prophet saw some was not accepted, then we then we're just we're bound to this we are you know, we're not. This is this is inevitable we are going to fight but that's not what we see because this is not what we see from our deen. If fighting was inevitable and discord was inevitable and is going to happen. Then you will not see a hadith or you will not hear a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:16:11--> 00:16:36

sallam where he says Coonoor about the law here in Atlanta that stay amongst yourself as brothers. You will not see either the Quran like wow seems to be happening. Now he Jamia and Walter for Rocco. You cannot say that it's inevitable so we are going to fight no, there are a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned how to fulfill each other's rights ladder has to do well at the bar or the wallet. But who knows.

00:16:37--> 00:17:16

There are these kinds of Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now we need to stay away from those kinds of things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he has mentioned that there will come a time where there will be immense. This is a Hadith narrated by how they felt even a young man or the Allahu Anhu. He says the knowledge of it is with my Lord alone, alone. And none can reveal his time. But he means the meaning, the time of the day of judgment. But I will tell you about its science, which will take place before it before it begins, there will be turmoil and hemorrhage. They asked odus was salam we know what is turmoil. But what is Herod, he said in the language of the

00:17:16--> 00:17:54

Abyssinian, it means killing, there will be also discord amongst the people, and hardly anyone will be able to recognize anyone else. Now, first of all, if you look at how large the province is, I'm talking about hundreds. You see this happening everywhere. There. I mean, we see people dying, they have no idea why they're dying, people are being killed. They have no idea why they're being killed. The person who's killing he has no idea why he's killing. This in itself is a sign of the Day of Judgment. Now, the next one that Robert Solow while he was on he has told us about which we see happening today is people plotting and planning against Muslims. Now, this is a Hadith narrated by

00:17:54--> 00:18:21

Phil about even earlier throwback early Ultron. The Prophet alayhi salam said soon the nations nations will call one another to attack you, as dinners call as diners call one another to a dish. Someone asked Will it be because we are few in number on that day he said no rather you will be many on that day. But you will be like the foam of a

00:18:22--> 00:19:02

of the torrent. Allah will take away your fear from the hearts of your enemies and Allah will fill your hearts with one with one and weakness. Someone asked Oh messenger of Allah What is one he said love of this dunya and dislike for death. Now here with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying is that a time will come that people will call each other? Like they're calling each other to have a feast. But they will sit down and discuss how to destroy the Muslims. Now what Allahu Allah? What is that? Meaning? How do people do that today? Many people say that, well, if you look at the UN, that's what the UN does. People are sitting around a big table, they're planning and plotting

00:19:02--> 00:19:42

against the Muslims what Allahu Allah, whatever it means. It simply means that just like long time ago, the only time people would call big numbers, or people will invite a lot of people in big numbers, is when people we're inviting people for food. But the probability is someone's telling us that a time will come that people will call others in such big numbers, and they'll get together as if it seems like they're getting together for food, but they will plot and plan against a Muslim and Subhanallah we see this happening behind closed doors, it is happening. And this is why we always ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for protection. And we always remind ourselves that no matter how much

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

people plan against the Muslims, won't matter to America, Allah will allow Home Marketing, they plan. Allah also plans that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is the best of planners. And so we keep this in mind. The next thing that we see happening in our society, unfortunately, and which is

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

also a sign of the Day of Judgment. The Prophet alayhi wa sallam said that you will not enter into paradise

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

till you believe

00:20:09--> 00:20:51

until you believe and you will not believe until you love one another. Oh Allah de la Comala che in either for ultimo, the habitus of salaam obeying the providing Assam Sasha and I tell you something that will increase your love for one another, spread the salam now the Prophet sal Allahu Allah He was on was asked one time that what is the best what part of Islam is best? He said to feed the people and give salaam to those who you know in those who you don't know. Basically in other words, there's a hadith. In fact, there is a person by the name of Abuja, Eid, he narrates that Abdullah bin Massoud met a man and he said peace be upon you. Epidermis oath. He said Allah and Allah has

00:20:51--> 00:21:28

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has spoken the truth. I heard the message of Allah saying, one of the signs of the hour is that a man will pass through a masjid and will not even pray to the cause in it, and a man will not greet anyone but those who he knows. Now how many times you see this in our masjid, I will only make some to those who are those who I know I don't make some for those who I don't know. This is why if you see me sometimes on Saturdays on Africa, Central Asia, I tell everyone to get together, get into small groups meet with one another greet with one another. Why? Because this grows our love. Today. Unfortunately, this is the biggest problem that we have in our

00:21:28--> 00:22:05

community. We talk about an epic that are Hamidullah, one of the fastest growing communities. But with a fastest growing community. The biggest dilemma that I believe that we have is that we have seen people for so many years coming to the same budget. I don't even know their names. And this is a big problem that we have. There are right now people in this gathering that I've seen for so many for so many days, so many years, so many weeks and months. I still don't know their name and I and I feel bad about that too. And so the thing is that when you say the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you say that the Hadith Jabra Italia, his salaam, for example, when Amina

00:22:05--> 00:22:45

HotJobs says, I saw a man coming to the Palazzo Allahu alayhi wa sallam who was who was that man it was Gibreel Alia Salam, but he was wearing white clothes, it seems like he was from someone in town. But he was not is this not someone that we know? This in itself tells you that Bob is basically saying that it doesn't matter how many muscles were living in Medina, we were familiar with everyone. We knew each other. Today. Unfortunately, we don't know everyone. We know one person, I'll make some to them. The other person I don't know, I will walk past them. And I will make some, how many times is it happened that three people, four people are talking, a person will come make some

00:22:45--> 00:23:22

to one and then they will leave. And so making slum to others. If you go and you make some to one person, make some to one person. And there's three or four people standing there. It is incumbent upon you that you make salaam to every single person, you're spreading peace, you're spreading salam to one another, what loss are you going to take upon yourself no loss, you're not going to incur any loss upon yourself, make some to others. It was the nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even when we see these children walking around running around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that he would go to the children and he would make some to them to say if you

00:23:22--> 00:24:00

go for example, if you are meeting with someone, an adult, and there's a child that he has a child, then make slam to that child to when our children, if if all the adults, if all the adults are making slam to one another, you know who's going to learn and pick up this good, great habit, our young children are going to pick up this great habit, when they get old. When they grow up, when they grow up, and they become adults and they become parents, they will they will, they will be able to inculcate this behavior, and they will be able to teach their children but if we don't mix them to one another, our children are gonna learn from us, eventually they won't spread some to others

00:24:00--> 00:24:36

either. So this is something that we see also from the Prophet sallallahu it was starting today in sha Allah, anyone we don't know we still makes them to them. And so we're going to start right here. There are some many others inshallah we'll try to get through them. In our next lecture. Inshallah, once again, all the things all the fitness that we're talking about every sign of the data determine that we're talking about, first of all, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from the from these fitness. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our children, our upcoming generations insha Allah. And please, once again, as we see from the legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam, our forefather

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

Ibrahim Ali is he always made dua for his generations today you and I, we make dua for ourselves and make dua for our family, but very seldomly, do we make dua for our upcoming generations, my children, my my grandchildren, my great grandchildren and so forth. Times are gonna get tough times are gonna get tough. Don't make dua only for your children make dua for your upcoming generations as seen

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

by the Prophet SAW sent him and seen by our forefather Ibrahim Ali Hassan May Allah Subhan give us the ability to add what's been sent heard is that Kamala Harris Ohana co long hunting nation to Allah in our illa Anta and stuffy Luca want to be exact no hate Islam or equal to liberal
