Hubert account so everyone listening that would have the Los Altos Mr. Su LA, he was talking to you and well, first of all, I want to welcome you all that are joining, either through YouTube or Facebook have a lot of bloemen. I'm very excited about our webinar tonight and of course, more excited about the series and Chatelet data that we have prepared for you that is coming out, which is Season Two of the angel series within the lifestyle. Now some of you may have noticed a title change. The first season was angels in your presence, the second season is angels in their presence and so many have asked what is the difference and the difference is that angels to is going to be

00:00:37--> 00:01:16

about angels with the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which of course is a form of miracle, something that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed upon these righteous people, some of them their names are well known to us other Sahaba their names are not really that well known to us and some of them are actually unnamed in the texts. However, the narrations about them are authentic. So Allah azza wa jal honored many people from that generation with certain interactions with the angels, and we can draw lessons from all of those interactions within it. Tada. So I want to remind you before I get started tonight and shot lots out, it's a please sign up and shout lots out of for

00:01:16--> 00:01:59

this series, and invite others to sign up as well. And Chatelet it will be exclusively streaming for those who sign up in sha Allah to Allah. So sign up and there will be some other things that we'll talk about towards the end. So why this particular topic about the miracles of the Olia? Is it just a catchy subject that we wanted to do a webinar on? No, I actually wanted to go over the subject to set the theological basis for this idea of the miracles of the Olia the miracles of the righteous. The Companions being the most righteous of the rightest as a generation, okay, and in doing so, Inshallah, to Allah, this is not just going to be a webinar with some stories, there are certainly

00:01:59--> 00:02:36

some stories that we will go over in the webinar itself before the season starts. But also, you know, set some basic concepts and Chatelet side that can help us also refute some of the misguided notions of miracles right in the misguided tools of deception or rather misguiding tools of deception that abuse some of these concepts that we find in our tradition and Charlotte's eyes. So we're going to separate between what is authentic, according to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Allah Hardy was salam, and what has been innovated over time, and how we can make sure that we can distinguish between the two. And of course, from a European perspective in terms of

00:02:36--> 00:03:19

certainty, and levena, you know, hype, those who believe in the unseen. And so these are things that involve both the unseen and the scene, because they connect the two as the scholars mentioned, when it comes to miracles, there's a transition between the unseen and the scene, that is unusual. And in that inshallah Tada is something for us to reflect upon. So I actually want to start off with a story in sha Allah, Thailand, and we'll get into the concepts. And this is a story about one of the most famous Khalil Max, one of the most famous miracles that we find in our tradition. And it involves a man by the name of Abu Muslim al Kolani, Rahim Allah to Allah, a Muslim was a tie Berry,

00:03:19--> 00:04:03

he was not from the companions of the Prophet Seisen, but rather from the second generation, and he lived in Yemen. And when the Prophet saw the lights on and passed away, there were multiple false prophets that arose. Of course, the most famous one is Muslim, I've cut up Muslimah the liar who certainly reap the most havoc upon this, and you know, there was much bloodshed, and even worse than that, a lot of delusion and deception that took place because of Mozilla, there's another net man by the name of us with an NC. And he asked what was in Yemen at the time, and claiming prophethood actually, even before the prophets lie, Selim passed away, and then of course, extended that and

00:04:03--> 00:04:46

went on to be a brutal leader and someone who employed all sorts of tactics to make his claim to prophethood. And so he had this mysterious aura he called himself you know, he was called milkymap The veiled prophet because he used to be behind the veil at all times. And you know, his his tactics and his tricks involved doing things with his donkeys, you know, allowing his donkeys to respond to certain commands. And so his nickname became the humanoid, the one of the donkey why, because that was, you know, the extent for the most part of the quote unquote, miracles that he was performing. So you have the false miracles of a false prophets. And then you have a person who refuses to

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

believe in Him by the name of a Muslim girl whoa Lonnie Rahim Allah to Allah. So that's what, as he claimed, prophethood he commanded a Muslim being a great scholar to testify that he was also a prophet of God.

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

And when Baba Muslim refused to testify to his prophethood, he ordered that a fire be lit in front of the people, and that he would throw up a Muslim into the fire Rahim Allah Tada. So it sounds very similar to what the test of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and of course, this was the way of these false prophets, right? They were masquerading as prophets for the sake of political power. And so they used, you know, political force and harm to try to coerce people into following them. And so he brings forth a Muslim Rahim Allah to Allah. And he has him thrown into that fire and herbal Muslim and hola Rahim, Allah to Allah walks right out of that fire, completely unharmed. And so some of the

00:05:45--> 00:06:24

ministers of us with the answer you of course, know that he's a false prophet. They tell him, Listen, if you don't expel him from this place, if you don't get him out of Yemen, then he's going to be a fitna for the people. He's going to be a tribulation, he's going to basically foil the plot for us, and so we have to get rid of him. So he expelled him out of Yemen. He told him get out of here. I'm a Muslim Rahim Allah to Allah made his way to the medina of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he goes to El Medina. And when he gets to Medina, he simply gets off of his camel, and he enters into Mercy, the Nabawi, the Masjid of

00:06:24--> 00:06:50

the Prophet, sallAllahu wasallam. And he starts to perform prayer. Honorable Hapa widow, the Allahu Tada and who is the Khalifa at the time he sees him. So he comes to him and he says to him, Where are you from? And he says, from Yemen, he said, Have you heard about the man who the Kozub who the liar threw into the fire? So a Muslim in his humility and his righteousness? He says to him, Yes, his name was Abdullah.

00:06:52--> 00:07:38

So he doesn't tell him that that was actually me. He says his name was Abdullah. So I'm a little the Allahu Tada and who said, Say to me by Allah, are you that man, are you actually that man? So he said, that He is that man and almost power or the Allahu taala? And who, who never, who never met him before he embraces him and he starts to cry. And he says to him, Alhamdulillah All praises be to Allah, who did not take my soul, until I met a man from this ummah, to whom was done what was done to Ibrahim alayhis salam. So I met a man from the Omo of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, who was afflicted in the way that Ibrahim Al Khalil, it his CERAM, the front of God was afflicted and given

00:07:38--> 00:08:16

a miracle, like the miracle of Ibrahim Al Khalifa or his salaam, and actually this was in the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the low tide I know that this happened in Medina, the point being that almost all the Allah Tada and who knew that there would be something like this? And he was informed by the prophets of Allah how it was set up, and so he wanted to meet this man. And when he met this man, this is what happened. Of course, we know of a similar story with oil, cottony Rahim Allah to Allah Who the prophets liason gave the bush that about gave the glad tidings about an old model, the longtime man who would meet him later on. So there's so much to extract from the story, to actually

00:08:16--> 00:09:02

lay the foundation for the concepts. You had a false prophet that was using false miracles, the illusion of miracles, to delude the people. Okay. And you have a righteous well, he of Allah, one of the only one of the writers who had a miracle that was done for him by Allah subhanho wa Taala there was no deception here. There was no verbal, you know, illusion. It was just Allah subhanho wa Taala had a blessing this righteous servant of his, and he did not use that miracle to attain anything of this dunya he wanted nothing from this world as a result of the miracle, not even fame, in the sight of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he could have boasted to honorable

00:09:02--> 00:09:40

Hopital the law. I know he could have come into Medina called trouble Beckett or the law on Hoonah Amato, the law and who and respond and Allah may Allah be pleased at the mall and said, I am that man from Yemen. And this happened to me. But instead he was a humble servant of Allah subhanho to Allah, who chose to hide his miracle but because of his righteousness, the same righteousness that Allah bestowed a miracle on him for Allah subhanho wa Taala caused his miracle to be known by the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so with that, let's get into this idea inshallah. Tada. When we talk about the miracles of the Olia the miracles of the righteous. Let's be

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

clear that there are two extremes when it comes to the understanding of visible miracles. And there's actually a good book that I use them and I'll mention some of the quotes from that book that was written by the madman Tamia Rahim Allah to Allah called and for con been earlier Ron will only shape on the criteria

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

or the distinguish the distinction between the Olia of AR Rahman, the friends of Aruna, and the friends of the Most Merciful, and the earlier of the shape on the Friends of the devil. And so he talks about the difference between the types of people that received these miracles, the difference between true miracles and false miracles, the plots of the past and the indications for the future and it is a very good book, in which he distinguishes between the two. And so, yes, in an era, specifically now, where you have more tools of deception, and you have more deceivers because of a lack of Taqwa as well as advancement in technology, so a lack of Taqwa with advancement technology,

00:10:44--> 00:11:25

you have to be more suspicious, right? You're going to have more people that are going to make false claims, you're going to have more visible forms of digelar. Right deception, realize that the John and Missy had the job, when he comes right, he utilizes the maximum of this right to to, to deceive people's eyes, so that he can get them to do certain things for him to believe in Him, and to follow Him and to do certain things for him. And so you're going to have more of that as time goes on. Because you have a combination, again, of a lack of Taqwa and an increase in technology. And sometimes it's going to be innocent, right? How many times do you see, you know, these these deep

00:11:25--> 00:12:06

fakes and these WhatsApp videos and certain YouTube videos that even will, you know, exaggerate certain things that are Islamic in their nature, right? So a so called miracle that is seen and recorded and filmed, then it's put online and it goes viral. And the Dean doesn't need that type of deception. We don't need that type of deception, right? We don't need to have that in order to prove a religion. That's not how the faith is established. Okay? So you're going to have more of that. And particularly, you're going to have people with bad intentions, that try to use the idea of miracles happening to them to denote a certain type of righteousness for them, by which they can escape, you

00:12:06--> 00:12:47

know, being held to the Quran and the Sunnah and the standard of faith that have already been set for us by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who had the greatest miracle of the Quran, and many other miracles that were bestowed upon him. So that's why you find a lathe inside. Rahim Allah to Allah great teacher of any mathematical Hola. He said either ATM or regular yam she Anna follow it after Ruby had Terry Lu Umrah who RL Kitabi was sooner he said look if you see a person walking on water, you see a man walking on water. Do not be amazed by him or impressed by him until he follows the Quran and the Sunnah, meaning you still hold him to the Quran and the Sunnah, the

00:12:47--> 00:13:26

standard of the Quran and the Sunnah, he's still responsible for following the rules, the parameters, the OHSU, the proper methodology of extraction from the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu it was set up his walking on water does nothing to prove anything. An imam Shafi Rahim Allah to Adam when he heard that he said plus on a leaf Rahim Allah to Allah He said that a leaf was right but he could have gone even farther. He says Bella either at modular em she Alma, he said, If you see someone walking on water, loyalty, it'll fit how even if he's flying in the air, okay, even if a person just starts to levitate and fly in the air and do all types of

00:13:26--> 00:14:07

things and all types of stunts, fella to daughter Ruby, do not be deceived by that person, until you weigh what they follow in accordance with the book of Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And so that's something that remains a principle for us, when it comes to false miracles for nefarious reasons. And this, these types of antics have existed throughout history from the very beginning, right, we mentioned us what and here you have, you know, as you go through the books, you find a man by the name of how does the DMSP for example, who used to touch rocks and they start to say to speak, when he touched these rocks, or that's what he made it appear as such. And of course,

00:14:07--> 00:14:43

he claimed prophethood and this was in the time of the medical marijuana, you had the the Firewalkers in the time Ibn Taymiyyah himself also in Damascus, the people that would walk into fire and walk out a fire, claiming that they were like a blue Muslim and Ibrahim it has set up and of course, even Taymiyah like him a lot, expose those people. So this is throughout history, and false prophets have continued to, to show themselves throughout history, literally every generation of the Muslims has had at least one person claimed prophethood since the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and usually multiple people that actually command significant followings that claim

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

prophethood after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And there's some sort of optical illusion, some sort of deception that takes place in regards to that. So what's the what what's also a difference between the criteria here and the nature of the people? I don't even know

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

But all the Allahu Anhu and he says a buffalo Olia who fear Abadi, he Allah has hidden. His Olia His righteous ones, amongst his slaves. And so you don't know if an activity mental or you don't know when you meet someone who is a leader of Allah subhanho wa taala. You don't know if you're meeting or whether you have Allah because the Olia of Allah are not boastful people, they don't go around claiming to be Olia of Allah, they're people that in secrecy, have developed a strong connection to Allah subhanahu ATOD and have a special and unique relationship with Allah subhanaw taala one of righteousness, if they were to try to use and claim a status that would give them worldly benefit.

00:15:43--> 00:16:25

That is the easiest way to detect that they're actually not only up of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So that's one extreme of people in regards to these miracles. And I wanted to get that out of the way in the beginning, before we go into the, the actual way that we can, inshallah Tada approaches. The other extreme, of course, are those that denied kalimat. Altogether, they denied the entire, you know, basis, theological basis of miracles happening to people that are not prophets of Allah. And this is a unanimous concept amongst a listener, but you did have sex very early on that went to the other extreme, and on the basis of rationality, they ended up denying it altogether similar to their

00:16:25--> 00:17:05

denial of public, and some of the scenes of the grave and the reward and the punishment of the grave. And other things, right, and you start to see, you know, there's a trend, once people start to deny, you know, things on the basis of rationality that are well established from Allah and the messenger, sallAllahu, alayhi, wasallam, then at that point, it's only a matter of time before they start to deny this in itself, the authority of the sun and the deny the Quran itself. So it always starts with, you know, using some of these concepts and abusing them. And that is not to say that we don't have room in our deen for the Ockel. Of course we do for the intellect. It's a big part of our

00:17:05--> 00:17:39

deen. But once you start to violate the established parameters, and then you start to get into a terminal hate, right and the knowledge of the Unseen when it comes to the knowledge of the Unseen in particular. These are things that do not require us to have to rationalize, but rather we believe because of what Allah and the messenger so lysosome have told us through these means of divine revelation. So that's also the other extreme right? Well, I can't see it. So I don't really believe it. Or this all seems like hocus pocus. I don't believe in any of this stuff. And of course, then you will start to say I don't believe in angels. I don't believe in this. I don't believe in that.

00:17:39--> 00:18:20

And then the ultimate ending of that is, I don't believe in Allah because I can't see Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's where that can lead to. And it can become very problematic. So the other extreme is, of course, none of this is true, right? There's no idea of Kalamata, no idea of miracles happening to the righteous. So let's talk about Inshallah, tada, what our position should be and what the theological basis of these comments are and what the implications are. Allah subhana wa Tada says, Allah who will be your loving aminu. Allah is the elite of the believers. And so the scholars mentioned that when you talk about Wilaya, closest to Allah subhana wa Tada and being a

00:18:20--> 00:18:59

friend of God, there are layers of that. And so the least of Olia of Allah subhanaw taala are the believers in the general sense, right? The believers as a whole are the only of Allah subhanaw taala. In the general sense, the greatest of the Olia are actually not the companions that the prophets themselves, the prophets themselves are the greatest of the odia of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And so you have this, this spectrum, when you're talking about we die when you're talking about closeness and righteousness, one part of it which is not accessible to us at all, which is of course being prophets of Allah, right. And then you have after them, the best of the believers, right and

00:18:59--> 00:19:40

so as a generation, that becomes the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now we Leia, which is to be sought, karamat miracles are not to be sought, and we'll talk about that we lie is to be sought to be a friend of Allah to be counted amongst the special friends of Allah is to be sought. We lie only comes through following the prophets example, it his Salatu was Salam. And the miracles that come out of the Alia are merely samples of the mortgage is that the miracles of the prophets of Allah. So I'm gonna say that again, you can't attain Wilaya except by going through the example of the greatest idea of Allah being the prophets. You can't attain any notion of it without

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

that, and the miracles that Allah chooses to bestow on some of his earlier some of his righteous friends, are only samples of the miracles of the prophets of Allah being the most righteous friends of Allah subhanaw taala and there's something very profound that some of the scholars have pointed out, for example, they said, if you look at

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

At Merriam, versus with Caf, and some of the scholars said SUTA Madame is the more exotic of the prophets. The miracles of the prophets were as soon as their calf is the climax of the LDR are the miracles of the righteous people, people that were not prophets, but that had miracles that were done for them by Allah subhanho wa taala. And it is directly tied to their righteousness. So it's actually very beautiful when you actually start to compare, right? So the medina giving us this access to this world of the prophets of Allah, and the fact that miracles happen to them. And miracles happen to the prophets of Allah, because of the same concepts of righteousness that are

00:20:41--> 00:21:25

present today. Right? If they're out of the when he called upon his Lord Zachary, it has set up when she had to what could when she relied upon her Lord Meriam it has Salah Okay, so you have miracles that are tied to the prophets, but also a clear, righteous, a clear catalyst of righteousness, and then suited calf follows with the people of the cave, right? And the rain. And of course, there's debate over and how did it Salam, if he was a prophet, and it appears that he is a prophet indeed. But the point being that for the most part, the idea of Kalamata Alia, of the righteous, the righteous people inserted calf that are not profits and miracles are happening for them. Some

00:21:25--> 00:22:08

scholars also make this distinction they say that the climax of the LDR the miracles of the righteous are not done to challenge others. And it does not necessarily happen by the by the person requesting it to happen contrary to the miracles of the prophets. So the prophets come with very specific miracles that are meant to serve as a challenge to the people and help, you know, certify or serve as a proof of a means of proof for their claim to profit. Okay, so that's also one distinction that's made. And as some of the scholars also mentioned, the magnitude of comets is not like the magnitude of the marches ought to be Ambia the magnitude of the miracles of the righteous

00:22:08--> 00:22:51

is not like the magnitude of the miracles of the prophets. And so when you look at a Saudi has set up raising you know, the debt, right or blowing life into a lifeless bird or what happened with the Brahim it has salaam also with the birds, right and then them coming back to life with Ibrahim it is the splitting of the moon and of course the Quran, the miracles of the prophets, the splitting of the sea, right? What happened with Musa alayhis salaam and his staff and the drowning of the army of their own. The magnitude of those miracles is an entirely different level than the magnitude of the miracles of the righteous and pious people that come after. So what's our process? How do we start

00:22:51--> 00:23:37

to grow in that spectrum of Wilaya and becoming those close friends of Allah subhanaw taala to where, you know, we may encounter some of these things even though that's not the sought out goal. Eliza just says Allah in Olia Allah healer hold on it him with his own verily V. Pious worshippers of Allah the friends of Allah La Hoefler, adding him they have no fear upon them without him he has known nor will they grieve Alladhina amanu what can we attack on those who believe and they have Taqwa they are God conscious. Okay, those who have Eman and Taqwa they have belief and they have God consciousness as a result, la Mustafa Hayato Jr, Phil akhira. Lots of dealer liquidity Mattila.

00:23:37--> 00:24:24

Delica Hohenfels lovely for them are glad tidings in this life. Okay, so this is where we start to see another basis for the notion of Kalamata of these miracles that happen to them. They have the glad tidings in this life and in the Hereafter, and there is no changing exchange for the word of Allah subhanho Its ad and indeed that is the great success. So here we find that Allah describes the only out very specifically in the Quran as may known as Korea, believers that also excel in Taqwa Excel, and God consciousness, they are highly attentive to Allah subhanho wa Taala and hence Allah azza wa jal is highly attentive to them. Right? So they pay specific attention to the commands of

00:24:24--> 00:25:00

Allah Subhan Allah to Allah. And as a result, Allah Subhana Allah bestows upon them things that are beautiful, right and that are that are very powerful, that denote or that confirm some of their righteousness. And so you have the combination of Imam and Taqwa some of the scholars say Eman is tough Kaushik. Eman belief is to abandon shirk is to abandon the worship of anyone besides Allah subhana wa Tada. Taqwa is tough Kumasi. chukwa is the abandonment of sin. Okay, so Eman is the abandonment of schicke. Taqwa is the abandon

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

of sin, disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala. So when you combine those two, then a person is movement and Turkey a person is a believer, and a person is someone who is highly righteous attentive to Allah subhanaw taala conscious of Allah subhanaw taala highly pious, and that's when a person starts to ascend the ranks of the Olia. This is of course confirmed by the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Where he says that Allah azza wa jal has said, I'm an adult, he will be here for them to who will help whoever takes one of my friends, one of my Olea as an enemy than I have waged war against that person, and Allah so that goes on to say, What matter automobilia mdbc

00:25:46--> 00:26:22

and habila min of Torah to array and my servant does not come close to me with anything more beloved to me, then the obligations starts with the obligations. It starts with the same things that every believer has to do. You never reach a point of righteousness where you don't have to pray anymore, or you don't have to do the fasting anymore. The basics anymore. You don't have to go to gym anymore, because what am I going to benefit from the hope but you never reach these places? Okay, what is fall remains fertile. So you're not going to come close to Allah subhanaw taala with anything more beloved to him than observing the obligations and avoiding the things that he has

00:26:22--> 00:27:13

made, categorically prohibited. And then what is Allah Abdi it's a caribou lamb, no aphid. And then my servants continues to draw close to me with the voluntary deeds. So first is the obligations, it is the word the bat and the you know, the obligations as well as the things must have that. So you have the word about the obligatory things, and I'm sorry, the YG bots and leaving off the things that Allah Subhana Allah has made haram. So first observing the obligations and abandoning the prohibitions, and then you have a person observing the things that are Mr. hab and leaving off the things that are more cruel. So then that person goes into the voluntary, where they start to replace

00:27:13--> 00:27:54

those acts of disobedience, with extra acts of obedience, and they start to abandon even things in the gray area. Okay, that might lead to disobedience or that resemble acts of disobedience are they're not pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala there's dislike in them. Okay, so they start off with as a scholar as mentioned YG bat and leaving off the the, the obligations and leaving off the things that Allah subhanaw taala has made prohibited and then they go to observing Mr. Hebert and leaving off the things that are mcru doing the things that are recommended and leaving off the things that are nearly disliked Allah as Justice Hatter, or HIPAA until I love that person.

00:27:55--> 00:28:36

A special love that Allah subhanaw taala then has for that person because you're not going to come close to Allah with any of these things, except that he's going to come closer to you call for either but Allah subhanaw taala says so if I love that person going to summer holiday yes Nairobi then I become the hearing with which that person hears well bizarro who Leviosa Roby and the site with which that person sees well yeah, the hula tee up to you, she'll be here and the hand with which that person strikes. Well, originally who Lottie yam she be her in the foot with which that person walks while insert Eleni the earth Leanna what it is to add any law or even an adult point

00:28:36--> 00:29:21

when that person gets to that point. When they ask me something, I will give them what they ask. And if they seek refuge with me, then I will surely grant that person refuge. And so when Allah loves a person, how does this not relate to the very specific KERAMA of the presence of angels? When Allah loves a person what happens? He announces it to Jupiter it is Sarah. And we all know this hadith, right? And Jupiter it is salaam loves that person as well. And Gibreel announces it to the angels and the heavens and they love that person as well. Right? And then cowboy acceptance is made for that person on the earth as well. So when Allah loves a person, then all the angels will love that

00:29:21--> 00:29:59

person. Right? And then when that person loves a lot what happens that person is going to do the things that the angels love to be around and witness. All right, so Allah and the angels love that person. And then that person loves the deets that the angels love because it brings about the love of Allah subhanaw taala. And so that person naturally becomes surrounded by the angels of Allah subhanaw taala surrounded by them Annika and certain things happen. So the miracles that happen regarding the angels with these righteous people are just a form of the Catamounts a form of the miracles that are related to that

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

person's righteousness before all else the person's Wilaya before all else may last Penetang to make us amongst them Allah I mean, the scholars then categorize. Why do miracles happen? For a person? Number one,

00:30:15--> 00:30:56

either it is a Hijjah in the deen a proof in the religion as that person's calling to Allah subhana wa tan. So it's something with their data to the people that Allah subhanaw taala gives to that person that confirms their data to Allah subhana wa Tada. Number two, the scholars say, is to give that person victory over their enemies. And so this is the majority of the miracles the combat that we see happening with the Companions as they were fighting off their persecutors as they were fighting, you know, against the corporation, what was happening to them, the Battle of bed, which we'll talk about in great detail, right? This is where you find the majority of those cut them out

00:30:56--> 00:31:33

the majority of those miracles and they're not always related to the angels, right. So if you've been following the first series, we talked about Okasha, all the allow to Andrew and one of the miracles that took place with him. Number three, they say cash for shinda to remove harm from that person to remove harm from that person. So a miraculous form of healing or something that happens to the person in that regard. Number four, as a means of extraordinarily honoring them, such as the case of Mario Monti Hustla. And of course there's debate over whether Madame it has Salam is a prophets or one of the Olia merely one of the greatest of the Olia.

00:31:34--> 00:32:14

But when Allah honored her with with food out of season, we'll see that happening to one of the companions as well, that we'll talk about in this series, inshallah. Tada. So, that is the fourth thing when Allah wants to honor that person. Number five, to make an example out of them, which is the case of us hobble calf, the sleepers of the cave. Okay, so these are the five things that the scholars mentioned, a puja in the deen number one which is in debt proof in the religion, number two victory to give them victory. Number three, to remove something harmful from them, number four, to honor them. Number five, to make an example out of them. And of course, that's not exclusive to some

00:32:14--> 00:32:57

of the other categories above when we talk about the fifth category, in particular, and so no generation collectively had more Olia than the Sahaba of the Prophet slicer. There is no generation that had more people as a generation, than the companions of the Prophet slice on them that fit into this category of the Olia of Allah subhanaw taala. And so that's why you're going to see all sorts of miracles that happen with the companions of the Prophet slice Allah as a consequence of their righteousness. And most of it is in the capacity directly tied to serving the prophets of Allah who it was. So there's, there's a secondary reason as well. So no generation had more odia than them.

00:32:57--> 00:33:33

And of course, they are the most righteous generation period right the prophets lie Selim mentions that if you were to spend, you know, and gold, you would never reach their righteousness, Allah has declared that He is pleased with the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And so, you're not going to find a generation with more Olia than them. Hence, you're not going to find a generation from the home of Muhammad sai Salem with more Kalamata with more miracles than them. And what also is important in this regard, especially for the purpose of the series that we're doing, is that the prophets I send him was amongst them to confirm and contextualize their miracles and

00:33:33--> 00:34:12

encounters. Of course, this is for the majority of them, not all of them because some of the Catamounts happens, the miracles happen to them, after the death of the Prophet, slice alum, but most of them, they went to the Prophet slice and they asked the Prophet slice of them, what happens and he explained to them, what had actually happened to them. Sometimes it was there witnessing a miracle with the Prophet slicin him himself. And that is, of course a gift that Allah Subhana Allah bestows on a few, right, that they're able to witness the prophets lie Selim, in an encounter, would you believe it his solemn, right or something that Allah sends to comfort the Prophet sallallahu

00:34:12--> 00:34:51

wasallam, or to be on the receiving end of a miracle of the prophets, Allah lahardee Who is something? And so you know, seeing for example, when the prophets I send him was sitting, and Gibreel it sort of comes to him and says to me, also Allah, do you want us to show you a sign? And he says, Yes, and he looks to a tree, and wi Sam tells the prophesy some to call the tree to him, the tree coming to him, and telling the tree to go back. Right? And this being a form of comforting the Prophet slicin him or when they saw the tree, that the Prophet sighs I'm used to lean against and give Hoba under and it cried when the Prophet slicin left that tree, right. So there's the

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

miracles that were being witnessed by them. Then there is being on the receiving end and there are categories here we have those that for example, eight

00:35:00--> 00:35:30

In the hands of the prophets, I saw them when the prophets lie, some put his hands and food and the food became more plentiful, right. So what could have only fed one person feeds 100 people. And of course, you have to be of a certain level to be blessed with that. But then you have the specific miracles. Like when the Prophet SAW Selim, uses his saliva, and it cures the eyes of AdMob. Not every thought, but all the allowed time on the eve of Haber. Another one that that's not as common is the sort of story of cinnamon and aquat for the Altana,

00:35:32--> 00:36:04

who had the mark of a blow a big wound on his shin. And he was asked, what is that that wound on your shin? And he said, it was a wound that I suffered on the day of Haber. And the people said that selama was wounded. So the Prophet slicin came to me, and he blew on it three times. And he said, I never noticed it until now. Right? It left nothing on me. Like there was no pain after the profit, slice and blue on it. Until now, or the narration, you know, we know the narration of the woman that came to the Prophet, slice them,

00:36:05--> 00:36:49

and said that she was suffering from epilepsy, that she would have seizures, and then she would fall. And when she would fall at the cash chef, then she would be exposed. And she asked the prophets, I send them for a cure and the Prophet sly, some said, If you want I can ask a loss, parentage security, and he will cure you or you can be patient and you are guaranteed gentlemen. So she took of course, Jana, but she said the out of soda. Can you ask a loss parents that when I fall, right, that I don't, that I'm not amongst those that are exposed, right that I still am able to maintain my out of my job when this happens. And the profit slice and I'm sad, yes. And of course,

00:36:49--> 00:37:26

in that case, she did not lose out on the reward. Now there is another narration where a man came to the Prophet, slice alum, and he was blind and he asked the Prophet sys alum to make dua to Allah subhana wa Tada that his blindness go away. And the prophets lie. Selim said, if you wish, I'll make you act free. And the blindness will go away, or you can be patient and that's better for you. The man said, Yes, of luck, and you make the right little luck, here's me and my blindness and the profit slice. And I'm did, and he recovered a sight. So that's not the story that you often hear, because there's a powerful lesson for us in the first one, but that's also one of those miracles

00:37:26--> 00:38:06

that you're on the receiving end with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, you also have narrations such as the two companions that NSL the Allah Tada. And who mentioned, we're walking with the Prophet, slice alum. And it was a dark night. And as they were coming back from the masjid, Allah bless them to have lights on their sticks, right? They were led by two lights that were like lamps. I'm sorry, actually, it's not the sticks in particular, but they had these two lights that were leading them, and going in front of them, and lighting the way in front of them. And when they parted, each one of them still had a light that was guiding them back to their homes. And so this

00:38:06--> 00:38:48

isn't a Behati saw Mr. Cooley, why had them in Houma why he didn't have to utter Allah. Whoa, right. So the idea that every one of them or each one of them still had this miraculous light that was guiding them back to their homes. So you have those and then you have the miracles of the Sahaba in general. And those are not necessarily with the prophets of Allah who it was, such as the miracle of Amun, or the Allahu Taala and her, who we spoke about in detail in the first who, on the Hijra. You know, it's narrated, that she almost died of thirst and Allah subhanho wa Taala gave her a bucket where that was suspended in the air, and she drank from that bucket until her thirst was quenched.

00:38:48--> 00:39:29

And she said she never felt thirsty again in her life. So during the hits la she looks up and she sees this bucket of water that is suspended from the heavens and she drinks from it. And Allah Subhana Allah blessed her to never be thirsty. Again. You have the most famous one of the most famous instance, perhaps in this regard. Honorable Hatano, the Allahu taala. And who, when he was given kotoba and his commander was in Persia. And as on little the low tide on who's speaking he says yeah, Saudia, eligible of Saudia, watch the mountain of Saudia watch the mountain. So almost the law on who's in Medina, and Saudia is leading an expedition in Persia, and Saudia. Afterwards,

00:39:29--> 00:39:48

months later says we heard the voice of our uncle Tabata, the Allahu Anhu saying yes, I do Saudia the Jabba the mountain and we saw behind us that there were people trying to attack us from behind the mountain, but instead we protected ourselves and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada defeated our enemies so that's one of the kettle mats as well. Or

00:39:49--> 00:39:56

you find from HUD has been relieved or they allow Tyler and her drinking poison and not harming him.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

Very beautiful one that I've spoken about when speaking about sin

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

Not in fantasy, all the low tide Einhell that when the Sahaba went to went to Iraq and they reached the the Tigris River and the Persians were the Persian Empire was on the other side and the Sahaba had to make a decision whether or not they should go into it or not. And so the model the Allah Tada and Hussain, Lilly that Lahoma Allah, Allah who would come I believe downwinder that Allah subhanaw taala has subjected the water to them just as he is subjected the land to them, and he takes out all the Allahu Tada, and oh by the hand, and 30,000 of the companions and the tab bearing of the profit slice, are the companions of the Prophet sly seldom go into the Tigris River, by foot and with their

00:40:46--> 00:41:27

horses, and they did not lose anything from their belongings, right literally 30,000 of the companions that entire Berrien entering into the river, and coming out and nothing being lost from what they had. And this was a karama, a miracle that was given to them. After them, the tambourine were full of kalimat because they are next in righteousness after the companions of the Prophet sallallahu it was said, and most of it again is you know, protecting them from their enemies. The mom hasn't a boss they owe him a whole lotta who was being pursued by a judge, and the troops have had judge reached him six times and every time they reached him, he made their out to Allah subhanaw

00:41:27--> 00:41:58

taala to make him unseen, invisible to them and every single time, Allah subhanaw taala gave an Imam Hassan Abbas Rahim Allah, what He had sought refuge in Him for Wasel hodiny the multiple stories that are narrated about him, you know, that some of them are authentic, some of them are not authentic. But, you know, they prove the righteousness of him and miracles that took place for him. And of course, even the prophets I seldom praised him though the prophets why Selim had never met him. So where does that leave us in conclusion,

00:41:59--> 00:42:45

and inshallah to Allah, this is something that's specifically pertinent to the person who's watching this that says, I want to come in, I want a miracle to happen with me, it would be really cool if a miracle happened to me. And then I could know right, and I would have a greater sense of certitude. Most of the Olia of Allah do not have observable kalimat that happened to them. Most of the pious friends of Allah do not have observable miracles that happen to them. And so it would be wrong. To simply say that KERAMA is the indicator of righteousness, that these miracles are the indicator of a person's righteousness. Righteousness is an indication of righteousness, not miracles, righteousness

00:42:45--> 00:43:24

is an indication of right of righteousness, not miracles. And in fact, as the scholars say, sometimes Allah may actually give a comma to wake someone up to their potential, not because they've arrived already at their peak piety, okay, so sometimes you'll find that a person is slipping and a lot out of his love for that person. Knowing what's in that person, gives him something that is miraculous, that brings him back right that confirms something for him. And this is, of course, the the case when it comes to righteous dreams, which is a form of Prophethood that is left to us not that we become prophets when we see true dreams, but the Prophet slicin mentioning that what remains

00:43:24--> 00:44:08

of Prophethood are true dreams that Allah gives to the believers. And as the end times come, the dreams become even more crystal clear and more precise to the righteous believers. And we find some people in the past that were not very righteous in the present circumstance, but Allah showed them a dream that woke them up. And that led them to a path of righteousness. And so the scholars mentioned be a seeker of righteousness, not a seeker of kettle nuts, because your soul might want kettle nuts, but your Lord commands of you righteousness, so pursue a course of righteousness, pursue that we lie and inshallah to Allah, whatever comes of that is bless it the same way with the dream of the

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

Prophet, slice alum.

00:44:11--> 00:44:52

I understand how much he wants to see a dream of the prophets lie Selim, we all want to see the prophets lie, summon a dream. And it is indeed a great blessing. But don't live your life pursuing a dream of the prophets lie, some live your life pursuing the companionship of the Prophet slicin in Paradise, and there are ways to do that, right? That are very practical. And that gives us something to you know, to pursue Allah with, for our entire lives. And so as we come to the series, the brothers and sisters of angels too, if we're not supposed to be pursuing, call them out. And we're talking about the cut outs of the sahaba. Is this just entertainment? No, absolutely not. Why did I

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

choose to do the series? Because just like everything else with the companions of the Prophet slice i love there's something instructive

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

They're examples. And even with the prophets of Allah as we said, there were qualities that warranted some of the blessings that Allah His parents are bestowed upon them. And so when we talk about angels with the companions of the Prophet sly send them. I want you to actually make connections between season one and season two, because everything that happened to the prophets of Allah Hardy was summoned his companions with regard to the angels, whether it is protection or piety or bestowed of honor upon them or some sort of encounter interaction. It has to do with the qualities that we elaborated on from the prophetic Hadith. In season one, right the remembrance of

00:45:39--> 00:46:20

Allah subhanaw taala the recitation of the Quran the pursuit of a course of righteousness and Taqwa and piety, and, you know, hanging on when other people are letting loose, insisting upon your deen when other people are giving up their deen and so every one of these stories has something, even if it's just to do and even if it's just a confirmation of the very idea that Allahu Allah denominator, Allah subhanaw taala is the Welly of those who believe and so inshallah I hope that you will watch the series with your families Inshallah, tada it's something that everyone in the family can benefit from right you can watch this with your children, you can share this with your friends, everyone can

00:46:20--> 00:47:04

Ask yourself what quality can I extract from this? That perhaps, perhaps, I can also ascend in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada and be with those people if the dose of Allah with our Prophet sallallahu wasallam so watch it and shot lots of benefit from it, I want to remind you all inshallah tight so please sign up for it. This is going to be streaming exclusively inshallah Tada at the link that you sign up for in shot let's add, and within it Tada towards the end. I'll also you know, share some notes

00:47:40--> 00:47:42

compartments Llahi we're gonna cut

00:47:45--> 00:47:54

back in Medina, the profit slice I'm sitting with the companions and suddenly the profit slice alone he he shakes as if something happens.

00:47:57--> 00:48:07

The angels started to come to me, I would come to my house and they would greet me at my door and then they would even come to me when I would lay in bed and they would greet me at the head side of my bed.

00:48:11--> 00:48:17

The way that Allah subhanaw taala protected these companions, we felt their presence arrived in the skies.

00:48:19--> 00:48:38

He said that was the angels that came close because of your recitation. He said Well Oh product last Maha Tian, little LA and NAS, lotta Tata Minh home. Suddenly I saw a man coming forward, and he had a spear. And at the tip of that steel spirit was fired.

00:48:40--> 00:48:56

Now what does it mean, to say that an angel wiped your face? Did angels appear in any other fashion? So let's see the whole melodica I don't play golf in football being a summer evil, that he is being washed by the angels between the heavens and the earth.

00:48:58--> 00:49:08

And he says, when you call out via rock, I mean, almost merciful those who show mercy. Harlequin tufesa is Savea I was in the seventh heaven.
