Mr. Hanner Heyman 100 I heard of it. I mean was so there was some of that also to him Hamid Walla early, he was a big marine was tremendously McAfee, McAfee Ramadasa Subhanak Ramona Ilana Valentina in the Antarctic Hakeem probably shortly so three ways to leave empty water while optimally Saniflo Kalia My bad.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:53

So inshallah in this series, as I mentioned in the announcement that we'll be talking about the signs of the Day of Judgment what happens on the Day of Judgment, the resurrection that will take place right before the sub and then Jana and Johanna and what is mentioned in the Quran sunnah by Jana jahannam. As far as the signs of the judgment are concerned, we have to understand that there are some signs of the day of judgment that have already come and gone. We will be talking about that in the upcoming weeks. There are some signs that have begun and they are increasing every single day and they exist even till today and they are existing now with us. And there are some signs that day

00:02:53 --> 00:03:33

a judgment that will only take place in the future, many of us may not even see them, we may we may not see them, we may be able to see them, but most certainly our upcoming generations will will be will witness those times. So the question is that why do we discuss the signs a day of judgment, because many people may ask the question is that What benefit do I get from setting about the state the signs of the Day of Judgment? How do I benefit from that? What do I get from that? Because anything that you and I we study or we discuss, we want to know what benefit Am I getting from this? So the question is once again the the alumni have answered this question, what do I get? What do you

00:03:33 --> 00:03:36

get? So the first thing is that we are fulfilling

00:03:37 --> 00:04:15

by studying the signs of the Day of Judgment which is something that is called the unseen. There are a lot of signs a Day of Judgment that we have not seen some that we may not ever see in the future but because these are the prophecies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we believe in them and this is believing in the unseen. Now believing in the unseen is something that is a prerequisite of our deen as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Allah Medina you may know Nabil Hi, that those people who can benefit from the Quran or when is the Quran a source of guidance is when these people the first characteristic that is mentioned is that they believe in the unseen. We haven't

00:04:15 --> 00:04:57

seen Allah yet we believe in Allah. We haven't seen Muhammad SAW Selim yet we believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We haven't seen Jana or Johanna. But yeah, we believe in Jana, Jana. We haven't seen what happens inside the grave. But we believe in what happens inside the grave. We don't we have never seen the Accra, but we believe in the Accra. Likewise, we have probably never seen some of this prophecies of the Day of Judgment, but we believe in them even though they are considered as the unseen information because this is a record of prerequisite or a condition of our deen and so the highlight you will see that any person who says that I believe only in that which,

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

which I see that is EMA.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

If that will not be accepted, for example, you look at the story of fear own, for the owned always rejected Allah subhanho wa taala. But the time that he accepted Islam, the time that he accepted Iman was when you think about it, when did this person accept Iman, when he saw the two sides of the sea coming together, when he began to see the reality, and death was right there in front of him, and he had no way out. That is when you said I believe in the love of Musa and Harun. But Allah accept that Allah did not accept that. Why? Because that's not called Eman. believe that's called ima Bill Whoo, Shahada. You are accepting faith because you are seeing something that is not

00:05:46 --> 00:06:29

accepted before Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment when people will come before Allah subhanho wa taala. Today what you and I have brothers and sisters is ill will your pain. When I go on the day of judgment and I see something that is I know your pain when I know your pain and pain come together that develops or that generates another type of pain, which is called Hochuli, a pain. You and I we know that there is something called China. It is in our knowledge, we've probably never seen China. But if you went to China today, and you saw China, then there is absolutely no doubt sometimes we say that I heard in China they do something they do this or they do that. This is

00:06:29 --> 00:07:14

probably in your knowledge. When you go there and you see it happening, then you know that you have happily appeared there is no doubt and then after that, on the Day of Judgment, the people will tell Allah subhanho wa Taala Robina Oh ALLAH Robina of Asana, we have seen what Submariner we have heard for JIRA Na Na masala and enamel pin on return us back to the dunya. So that now so we can do right as these in walking on. Now we have what now we have European you know in the morning to after southern fudge I was talking about Yaqeen having full firm faith, this exactly what that is exactly what that is that you have happened yet. There is no doubt in it. This is exactly what will happen

00:07:14 --> 00:07:59

on the day of judgment, but that time will be late. Why? Because you knew that this would happen yet you still procrastinated you delayed. You never prepared for the hereafter now that you see Jana now that you see Jahannam now you want to go back that is when Allah subhanaw taala will say you cannot go back whatever you have done in the dunya that's all that you have today. So this is so this is part of our deen that we have to believe in the in Malawi as Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned in the Quran. The second thing the second reason why we study the signs of the judgment is because it encourages encourages us to to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to prepare for the hereafter.

00:08:00 --> 00:08:48

There was once a time when Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was send them he came and this is a Hadith as narrated by Zainab bit the geohash or the Allah to Allah she says, I'm going to be a civil law what are they he was sending them Dukkha they have forgotten that he entered upon us and he was extremely frightened for your pool La ilaha illallah wa he said La Ilaha illa Allah Amina, there is no word no one worthy of worship but Allah subhanho wa Taala then he says way La Nina Arab men sharpening Kadir Katara, then whoa to the orals because an evil which has drawn near today, an opening of this size has been made in the barrier restraining Jima juge and he made a circle with

00:08:48 --> 00:09:30

his thumb and index finger. I said, Xena brings that to her she says I said O Messenger of Allah shall we perish while while still there will be righteous people amongst us and the Prophet Allah is some replied yes, when the wickedness and the evil predominance predominant, takes over or dominates a society this is how he does mention in Bukhari and Muslim is and what the fuck are a hadith The reason why this hadith is I'm sharing this hadith with you is because when you hear these kind of a hadith, and not only that, but the other signs that I will share with you in the upcoming weeks, this will show us that why we need to remain connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala if you and I

00:09:30 --> 00:09:59

want to be protected from the fitness even from the signs of the judgement, if we want to protect ourselves and our families that we need to remain closely connected with Allah subhanho wa taala. And by knowing these things, it only helps us to prepare for the Day of Judgment. The third reason why we study this is because this actually is not just information though, that has been provided to us, but this actually provides as a fifth key resource

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

As a fifth he

00:10:03 --> 00:10:47

as a fucking resolution or solution, if you if you make, how is that so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says about what he talks about the judge, that when the gel will come, the length of the stay of the John on the face of this earth will be for 40 days. Now, the first day will be equivalent to one year, so the Sahaba of the Allah on us and obviously, I'll send them that how will people now Subhanallah think about the Sahaba of Viola Rodman, you know, you and I imagine, if we were told that the journal will be here and the first day he will be here to be equivalent to one year, our question will probably not be the question as the Sahaba asked, they will not be

00:10:47 --> 00:11:25

there, we're not worried about anything else they asked us was Allahu Allah, he was setting up the jasola. What should we do at that time regarding our salaat, they were so worried about salata that time, and the Prophet alayhi salam, he says that at that time, you you estimate the timing, this is what the Prophet alayhi salam says, you estimate the timing now, why? How does this help us in this day and age? This actually helps us in this day and age, especially with countries that actually don't see the night. Like there are countries like Norway A times during the year they just don't see the night. They see the morning time they have something called the midnight sun, it's midnight

00:11:25 --> 00:12:04

get the sun is out. So how do you expect them to pray Salatin? How do you expect them for a salad? Because salad especially when it comes to Muslim and Orisha? Because this has been a question amongst Aha, is that people who live in those kinds of countries, do you even pray Muslim? Do you even pray southern Russia? And the answer is yes, you do pray southern Muslim you do pray yourself to a shot. Why? Because you just rather estimate the timing as Rasulullah sallallahu it was something he talked about when the time the gel comes. So these people who live in these lands when they don't probably see night, they should actually just estimate the time and pray Maghrib and then

00:12:04 --> 00:12:48

pray Southern Asia even though the sun may be out. So when we say the size of the judgment, this actually serves as a flippy and a Philippi discussion and a 50 explanation. This another reason why we study this is because when we study the size of the Day of Judgment, and then we see these things happening on the faces Earth, this is actually evidence that Rasul also along while he was selling was indeed a true for messenger sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala because everything the Prophet alayhi salam, he has for told us and he has warned us about these things will happen and these things you will see them happening as we cover the signs a day of judgment, things that the Prophet

00:12:48 --> 00:13:32

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us 1400 years ago Wallahi when you see them today, it boggles your mind. And the only the only conclusion that we come to is that Wallahi every single thing that Rasulullah sallallahu it was something he told us about or he told us about it is the absolute truth and anything that has come from the tunggal rustless Allahu alayhi wa sallam can never be a lie, or they cannot be false information. The next thing is that our knowledge regarding the size of the Day of Judgment helps us eliminate any kind of any kind of confusion regarding the size of the Day of Judgment. When it comes to the size of the Day of Judgment, when it comes to the events leading to

00:13:32 --> 00:14:12

the Day of Judgment. There's a lot of people who have fabricated information, there's a lot of books that you will find that have fabricated information, and they have no basis in them they have provided information, but they don't have any strong a hadith or a Quranic idea to back up that claim. So by setting this we know what is the truth and what is fabricated information. When we say the size of a judgement, even though we see that there is so many fitness there are going to occur, but at the same time this provides us hope. Why hope? Because the Prophet salallahu Isom, he has told us that while there'll be many fitness that will come upon the Muslim ummah, there will come a

00:14:12 --> 00:14:56

time of peace, there will come a time of hope, of being hopeful, there will come a time of optimism. And when we study this, we as a human being, we always want to have optimism, when you read these fitness, a lot of times a person can feel have a person can feel heavy a person can feel you know emotionally down that what will happen to the Muslim ummah. But when you see these a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the times of prosperity what times of prosperity will come upon the Muslim ummah, this provides some hope. And lastly, this action he gives us, we learn as human beings, we always are curious, we want to know what's going to happen about things that we

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

have not seen, by by learning these kinds of things. We know

00:15:00 --> 00:15:40

That what information as I said earlier, what information is true what information is not true now, this is why we say the size the Day of Judgment. Now there are some guidelines that we should keep in mind when studying about the size of a judgement if you actually have the zeal in this drive to study more about the signs of the Day of Judgment, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind number one is that if you are interested, then you need to go to the books. There are books written in Arabic, there are books written in English, there are books, even written in order that provide proper and good information. And there are many books written and all these all these three

00:15:40 --> 00:16:22

languages that are not backed by strong proofs and strong the law. So it's very important that we stick to those books that have the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, if you see something I see, let me tell you, let me let me explain this. Sometimes you might find a book, you might find a book that says that this event is a sign of the Day of Judgment. Now, this event that is mentioned in the book may not be in particular, a sign of the day of judgment that is mentioned by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but does that mean that is fabricated, or that's wrong information, not necessarily, if the person says that this will happen, and they say that there is a

00:16:22 --> 00:17:04

Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu, it was some that he mentioned such and such. And this is, in light of this, or this is an explanation of this hadith, or this event is what the prophet Allah is some could have been put had been referring to, there is nothing wrong and taking that information, you cannot stake you cannot stick to the exact script of the Hadith, we stick to that, of course. But if there's any events that are taking place in the world, that is connected to that hadith, then you can take that sign of the Day of Judgment, you cannot say that this is what the Prophet alayhi salam mentioned, because that's not what the prophet as I mentioned, but what's important to say is that

00:17:04 --> 00:17:45

the Prophet Allah is not mentioned such and such. And we can see a remnants of that in this event that has taken place in the world, for example. So this is something that we have to be very careful about. The next thing when it comes to this, one of the guidelines is that we always refer to the to the scholars regarding this matter. There's a lot of things that we hear in our society, there's all things that we hear culturally, we should try to eliminate them by going to the scholar and learning from them. At the same time, what's very important is that people, yes, one more thing is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, in a hadith, that I in the hour have been sent like

00:17:45 --> 00:18:17

this, and I shared this with you last time that he says this is what the Hadith of the Prophet it is, some is now, once again, every sign of the Day of Judgment is not a sign that you and I will probably see there are some that took place before, there are some that are taking place right now. And some that will take place in the future, we need to keep that in mind. If a person says I haven't seen this sign the Day of Judgment, therefore, it's not a sign of the Day of Judgment, that claim is false. And you cannot make that statement. Why because once again, we will not see every single sign of the day judgment. But there are some other guidelines that we need to keep in mind.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:41

For example, when we come across this knowledge, when we come across this knowledge, there are some people they begin to do things that are not prescribed. And or they began to they began to give up things that are prescribed, for example, some people they say that you know what, I'm going to sit here and just wait for the mentee to come.

00:18:42 --> 00:19:15

Now even though yes, we are going to learn about many we are going to learn about the signs in the last day. But a person cannot sit down and just sit there and say you know what this can happen anytime I'm looking at the state of the affairs of the OMA, this is going to happen anytime. I'm just going to sit here and wait. You cannot do that. The Prophet Allah Islam told his own Sahaba about the coming of Maddie about the coming of the judge about the coming of reciting his Salam and so forth. But did he ever told us a harbor to drop everything and just wait for them? Never. Once the hobby came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and he asked the Prophet adding the salam

00:19:15 --> 00:19:53

that when is the Day of Judgment, the Prophet saw some did not say that you know what? I don't he first of all, he does not know when the day judgment is. But the Prophet alayhi salam told him something else. He said that what preparations have you made for the last day, because that is what our responsibility is. Our responsibility is not to wait for those events to occur. Our responsibility is to make sure that if any signs of the judgment occur, minor or major, and while we are living, we should have number one enough Iman and enough Taqwa to protect ourselves and our families. That's the first thing that we have to do. And the second thing that which is our

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

responsibility is to prepare for the hereafter. No one has told us to sit down and wait for them. Now I know

00:20:00 --> 00:20:30

Some people, I've heard of some people that when they have began reading about this, they just don't start right there. They study about the sign of the Day of Judgment, then they go to the next step, which is Illuminati, then they go to the next step, which is just different different groups, and then this conspiracy on these consumers conspiracy ideas that surround us. And then what do they do? They just sit in their homes, and they're collecting canned foods that the Day of Judgment could come anytime, and they just sit inside their homes. This is not why we say the size of the day judgment, we have to move on with our life. Some people say that you know what, I will not get

00:20:30 --> 00:21:06

married. I don't want to have a family. Why? Because if these things occur, I don't want my kids to be affected know, the Prophet alayhi salam, he never stopped. He never stopped from getting married. He never stopped the Sahaba from getting married, even though there were times did you know that there were times when the Sahaba actually thought that the Jai will come during their time, yet they moved on in their life. So we cannot really hold ourselves back. When we study something like this and say that you know what, I'm going to give up everything in life. No more school, no more job, no more working with a family to sit in one room wait for the wait for the day of judgment? No, we're

00:21:06 --> 00:21:47

not going to do that. The second thing is that if any person is studying about the size of the Day of Judgment, and they began to lose their faith, because this happens a lot. This happens a lot. There are a lot of Muslims, a lot of Muslims today, who have rejected the second coming of Esau to his synagogue, who have rejected the coming of Imam Matthew, who have rejected the coming of Yajima Jews, whoever rejected the coming of the judge these things we know that they are proven from the Sunnah of Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And they are going to happen, they are most certainly going to happen. And nothing can deter us from that no matter what any the law in anyone

00:21:47 --> 00:22:25

can give this, these are events that will take place. Now if a person begins to study this, and they begin to deviate from the right path, they start to have doubts about their Abida they began to have they began to have doubts about the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is a point where this is part of the guidelines given to us by the ALMA that that is when you stop studying about this matter and you reflect and you focus on bigger things you need to reflect on other things. So yes, we need to study these things, so that we know how to protect ourselves and how to protect ourselves because right now we are surrounded with so many signs a day of judgment. Yes, we are surrounded

00:22:25 --> 00:23:01

with so many signs a day of judgment. So we say this to protect ourselves, but at the same time we cannot let the study take away our Aveda and create doubts within our own hearts and within our minds. So if these kinds of things happen, that is when we need to stop this study. So inshallah we'll go and stop right here. This is the end of the introduction of the study of the signs of the last day. Inshallah starting next week, we'll be talking about some of the signs that took place right after the coming of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we will transition into the signs that we are surrounded with Inshallah, we will do that in the upcoming weeks. I pray to Allah

00:23:01 --> 00:23:27

subhanaw taala that whether we are alive, or our upcoming generations are here, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to protect us from the fitness of the signs of the last day. May Allah Subhana Allah give us the ability to to to help us Milanos ability to prepare ourselves for those times to come back from Allah Subhana Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah ilaha illa Anta nestoil Fuuka want to be the exact Malachite as somebody from clay Brocato
