00:01:04--> 00:01:08

One of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

started reciting surah telegraph.

00:01:16--> 00:01:19

And there was an animal around him.

00:01:20--> 00:01:27

And all of a sudden he found that the animal was moving in a restless way.

00:01:30--> 00:01:35

And then he said, I saw something like a cloud on top of me.

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

And I felt so calm.

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

So he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he shared this with him.

00:01:44--> 00:01:52

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that's a Sakina that serenity, that sense of peace.

00:01:54--> 00:02:05

And that cloud represents that calmness that are lost the pineapple Donna sent because of the recitation of the Quran, and especially slaughter

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

Another Hadith also about sort of calf,

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

and it's also narrated by our sorry, the lottery or the Allahu, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever recites certain calf,

00:02:52--> 00:02:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala will give him light from underneath his feet until the sky

00:03:00--> 00:03:25

a third Hadith related to slaughter calf, also narrated by our sir at the love that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever recites Surat Al calf, it will be light for him on the Day of Judgment. And whoever recites the last thing is of throttle cough.

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

He will not be harmed by the Antichrist and my secret agenda.

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

So sawtell cough has so many virtues

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

and also the day of a Juma the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:44--> 00:04:05

as narrated by Abu huraira Dr. Lowe inside the Muslim said, yo will Juma today Juma who are hierro Yeoman politicians. It's the best day when the sun rises, or V hodaka. Adam, Adam Elisa Lam was created on Friday.

00:04:07--> 00:04:41

Well, he the halogen and on Friday also he intention or fee horas horologium in Elgin and on Friday, he was also taken out of genda when he disobeyed the law supply now in Thailand. Well, if he hit up Allahu Allah Adam on Friday, Allah accepted the repentance the Toba of Adam alayhis salaam Wolfie COVID. And Adam died on Friday and then the process alum said and it's the day when the day of judgment will happen. It will be also on Friday.

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

Then the processor Lam said Wolfie, he said

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

there is an hour on Friday. There are lots of panels the eila accepts the door and the scholars of the seat of Hudis. They said that our is the hour where the hood was happening.

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

And this is why should come and listen attentively to the football. Don't play with your mobile. Don't look around, you know, because the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam told us, if you do level in Juma then you have no drama

00:05:16--> 00:05:49

and basically have to be early enough because once the Imam says salaam aleikum when he comes to the member, the angels who are standing by the door writing down the names of people who ever comes first, once they hear salaam aleikum from the Imam, they close the records, no names will be written after that. And they listen to the hotbar when we also should be attentively listening to the hotpot don't take it as your chance to take a nap every Friday when you come to the football.

00:05:50--> 00:05:57

And you have to get a message from the top but insurance with your family when you go home.

00:05:59--> 00:06:05

So why do we recite sort of calf

00:06:06--> 00:06:07

every Juma

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

why specifically Southern calf?

00:06:11--> 00:06:18

First of all, all the Quran is the word of Allah and all the Quran is important.

00:06:20--> 00:06:31

But why do we specifically are recommended to recite certain calf on Yama Juma before I share this with you, let me share with you the reason for the revelation of sort of

00:06:35--> 00:06:41

the people who were worshipping idols in Mecca, the missionary keen

00:06:43--> 00:06:50

they approached the Jews, the people of the book, because they have the Torah in their hands at the time.

00:06:52--> 00:07:02

And they asked them they said, What do you think of that mission of Mohammed Salah? What do you think of the Quran and Islam and that stuff?

00:07:04--> 00:07:10

How can we make sure that what he is telling us is real revelation, it's coming from God.

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

So the rabbi's of the Jews at that time they told them, go and test him.

00:07:19--> 00:08:12

Ask him what do you know about the people of the cave? Some young people who spend according to the solar calendar, the Gregorian calendar, it's 300 years. And that's why some people ask this question, why does it say in the Quran 309. And it says in the Torah 300. And it's very simple, because we follow the lunar calendar and there is always between 10 to 11 days difference, you know, so the Gregorian calendar is 11 days difference. This is why when you calculate 11 days of difference across 300 years, you can add those nine years, this is what Allah said, while I be foofy caffee him philosophy at in Sydney and I was dead of desire. So the Quran mentioned 309. So there is

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

no contradiction. So basically,

00:08:16--> 00:08:32

they told them go and ask him, if he answers the question, then he is a prophet, and he receives revelation. If he doesn't know how to answer the question, then he is a liar. And asked him about a man who toured the entire world from the east to the west. That's

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

fair King at his time.

00:08:38--> 00:08:57

And sapan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam response, he said to them, say it completely jaboticaba he said, I'll get you the answer tomorrow. And for one time in his life, the professor Don't forget to say insha Allah, if Allah wills

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

it was not intentional.

00:09:01--> 00:09:32

And they came the following day and there was no revelation. Second day, third day, one week, two weeks revelation stopped. Because Allah subhana wa Taala whenever the professor Selim with was put in such a situation people come in with questions, the revelation will come. So he was certain that Allah will support him with the Quran right away, but he just forgot to say inshallah, you see how important inshallah and you see how we abuse insha Allah today.

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

So, the revelation stopped for two weeks,

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

then cervical cancer was revealed,

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

which is soul number 18. And

00:09:45--> 00:09:55

amazingly enough that Allah subhanaw taala in that surah he reminded the profits of a lot of salon, you know, when you go to the surah at 20 for a

00:09:57--> 00:09:57

while

00:10:12--> 00:10:42

All Mohammed never say I'll do this tomorrow, except after saying in sha Allah. That's a reminder for all of us. Because some of us say, I'm traveling tomorrow to visit my cousin in New York. Yeah, he said, inshallah, why? I have a confirmed ticket. The weather is nice. I'm okay. My cousin is waiting for me. The roads are clear. You know, there is nothing

00:10:43--> 00:11:21

and supply law. He wakes up in the morning, there is 20 centimeters of snow. And then he hears the news. All flights are canceled today. Who isn't controlling the weather? Not the forecast alone. Or you might wake up sick in the morning, he can move who's in control you a law. You might go to the airport, and everything is perfect. And you're waiting and waiting, but there's a delay in the coming flight and then it's canceled. I say come tomorrow, inshallah.

00:11:22--> 00:11:35

Then you realize the meaning of inshallah, you might arrive in New York, and then they stop you're there for because of Coronavirus. You need to go back to Canada, you're not gonna see your cousin, inshallah.

00:11:36--> 00:11:52

You might even arrive in New York and you'd open the door, but your cousin sapan Allah, all of a sudden, he received the news that his dad died back home, and he flew the night before you arrived in Sharla. So we need to realize the meaning of inshallah.

00:11:53--> 00:12:14

Anyway, the surah was revealed. And that was the reason for the revelation. Back to the question, why do we decide sort of calf every Friday, because, so that God has five stories, five stories, and they summarize our life.

00:12:15--> 00:12:25

And these are five reminders. If you really read the surah with focus, they will keep reminding you of the reality of this life.

00:12:27--> 00:12:32

first story is the story of the people of the cave, a group of young people,

00:12:33--> 00:12:40

their entire community, were Kfar, they were mushrikeen. They were either worshipers.

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

And those young people were rich. They were living a very easy and luxurious life.

00:12:49--> 00:13:17

But when they felt everybody is not suffering to Allah, and they're worshipping idols, they choose to abandon their community and leave. And they choose a life in a cave over an easier life. So what is the test here? That's the first test in our life. When the test comes in your dean, you should sacrifice everything, but never ever sacrifice your team.

00:13:18--> 00:13:24

So they left the entire community and they run away with their faith.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

And they prefer to live in a cave

00:13:28--> 00:13:54

at a loss of panatela supported them. So this is the first fitna the first trial or tribulation, you might come across in this life, Salas reminding you, if you were to meet Allah subhana wa tada on the Day of Judgment, with everything, without your faith, you're a loser. But as he made Allah subhana wa Taala, on the day of judgment was nothing but your faith, you're a winner.

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

That's three number one.

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

And that's the listen number one inserted calf. Story number two,

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

the story of the two people, a rich man and a poor man.

00:14:09--> 00:14:36

One of them a Lost Planet, Allah has given him two gardens. Lots of fruits are ever in between very easy life, lots of children. But that's a that's a test. Some people think what a what gives them It means I was pleased with them. Know when Allah gives his testing your gratitude? Would you say it comes from Allah and it belongs to Allah? Or would you say I'm smart, and I made all of this.

00:14:38--> 00:14:45

The other man who was very poor, but he was happy, and he was content with whatever last part Allah has given him.

00:14:46--> 00:14:55

But Subhanallah The rich man. Not only did he attribute everything to himself, he started denying the Day of Judgment.

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

And he said, even if there's a day of judgment, I will

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

be better than you. There'll be two other gardens waiting for me there

00:15:04--> 00:15:22

was the halogen met. Oh, Holy moly. Nuff said. Colima, Amon Tabitha had he was describing. He said, when he entered his gardens, and he was unfair to himself. He said, I don't ever think that something could happen to my gardens.

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

And he thought he thinks he owns them. Listen, whatever you have is not us.

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

It's a loss. Allah gave it to you.

00:15:34--> 00:15:42

And Allah will claim it back at some point. And you will meet a law with nothing except your deeds.

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

So this man started denying the Day of Judgment.

00:15:47--> 00:15:55

The judge will not be better than you. So the man reminded him and it's a reminder for all of us. He said, a comfortable lead the halaqa mentor up.

00:15:56--> 00:15:59

Did you disbelieve in the one who created you out of dust?

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

Then a piece of blood that came as a result of the sperm with the egg?

00:16:10--> 00:16:18

Zuma Sahaja Raja, and he made you a man and he gave you all of this. What happened at the end? Because this man

00:16:19--> 00:16:35

disbelieved, and he was ungrateful to Allah, Allah destroyed his two gardens. And this is the story of every tyrant in the history of mankind. Look at the Pharaoh of Egypt, what did he say?

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

Am I not the king of Egypt,

00:16:42--> 00:17:10

and I have all this kingdom and the rivers run beneath me. What happened to him? Allah destroyed him a lot to his kingdom, because it is a law. So the law gives you is testing your gratitude. And when a law denies you, he's testing your patience. So the poor man was patient, and he's the winner. So the story number two, the fitna of money and children.

00:17:11--> 00:17:15

Be careful. It could be a blessing could be a curse.

00:17:16--> 00:17:39

Story number three, the story of Musa alayhis. Salam, and a lot of But before that, there is the story of Adam alayhis salaam because I mentioned five stories. And like keeps reminding us of the story of Adam. When Allah subhanaw taala commanded all the agents to make the Jews and they all did.

00:17:40--> 00:18:03

But it was there. It doesn't mean that he's an angel, but he was with the angels. And Allah commanded him to make sure to but he refused. Why arrogance. That's the lesson. Don't be arrogant. Because Adam said, sorry. Please say Allah Hi, Roman. I am better than him. No,

00:18:05--> 00:18:08

Tommy, Oregon, don't think highly of yourself.

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

And supprimer the point that he took

00:18:12--> 00:18:30

pride in was the fact that he said Hanukkah name and now Hanukkah homerun team, I am better than me because he created me out of fire. And He created him out of dust. So it's not even something that you made yourself. The fact that the likely to do from fire is that's why you're better than him.

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

So,

00:18:34--> 00:18:51

disobedience to alarm, in one sense that what about many Muslims today who come only to the masjid in read? How many such them do they miss? What about the Juma Muslims who come only to the message in Juma

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

What are people who pray they select they pray maybe over in memory and then the rest inshallah later on when I become a better Muslim inshallah

00:19:02--> 00:19:10

how many such that we miss a blease was kicked out of the mercy of Allah because of one sister.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

And it was out of arrogance.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

So that's another lesson.

00:19:19--> 00:19:22

Then the story of Musa alayhis salam.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

According to soil Muslim,

00:19:28--> 00:19:58

a man came to Musa alayhis salam is also related collected by Buhari and he asked him, he said Helloooo natca. Madhu Allah moment is there someone who is more knowledgeable than you? Or he asked him who is the most knowledgeable person? He said me? Is there any one who's more knowledgeable than you who said no. So Allah subhana wa tada wanted to blame Moosa as if he's telling him he should have attributed all knowledge to me.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Because I'm the source of knowledge and allow central focal point,

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

above every knowledgeable person, there is a wall, the all knowing.

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

So

00:20:15--> 00:20:33

Moosa is teaching us on Instagram, Allison. Why? Because the law told him, he said, Go, where the two seas meet, and take with you a fish, because you're gonna travel to seek knowledge. And you will meet someone who's more knowledgeable than you, even though most of the profit

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

and that's called, according to some books,

00:20:39--> 00:21:24

or others, they call him, the righteous slave of Allah to solid. So a lot of them, whatever you're gonna miss and forget the fish. This is the place where you're going to meet with him. And Subhanallah you know, Musa alayhis salam went with, you know, one of one of his companions, and they missed the fish, and they left. So when Mossad SLM felt angry, he told him, bring us the food, we're hungry, he told him, shall we go back where the two seas meet? Because I forgot the fish that he said. That's exactly what Allah told me, I'm going to meet the righteously. And when they went there, they found him waiting, and moosari salaam accompany him and the man was so tough on him. He

00:21:24--> 00:21:37

said, You can accompany me because you know Moosa, even though a prophet is asking him shall I follow you to learn something from you imagine a prophet is asking a righteous man like that. That's humbleness when you seek knowledge.

00:21:39--> 00:22:01

And then he said, No, you will be impatient because you will see weird stuff. You wouldn't you wouldn't be patient. He said, Please, I will be patient, I promise. You said Okay, another condition. If you follow me, don't ask. Don't ask what's happening in front of you until I tell you what's happening. He said, I will.

00:22:02--> 00:22:13

But the reality was three incidents happen in front of masala salon, and he couldn't be patient every time. He was like, No, he can do this. Because when they joined the ship,

00:22:14--> 00:22:38

and they joined the ship for free because masala Salaam knows those people. And despite that, he made a crack in the ship. And the people were about to sink. So musala salamati sees something wrong. He said, How could you do this to the people they can begin to drown? They said, didn't I tell you you will be impatient? He said, Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot.

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

So we can apologize. Don't be arrogant apologize. Is musala. Sir, I'm saying I'm sorry.

00:22:45--> 00:22:54

then same thing, they made a child and the righteous man killed him. And, again, why would you kill a child?

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

It seems bad. But you don't you don't know the wisdom of Allah?

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

Because it's Allah who commanded him to do so. This is the color of Allah.

00:23:06--> 00:23:19

And Musa guns like why why would you do this third incident, they went to a town, and they felt very hungry. So they knocked on the doors of people, and people denied giving them food.

00:23:20--> 00:23:26

So they saw a wall that was about to fall. So musallam

00:23:28--> 00:23:55

was asked by that man, he said, Come help me to build that wall. They said, the people, you know, denied us food, and you want to do them a favor by building a wall for them. So you know what? That's it. Let me tell you the news. What's the wisdom behind this story? Many things that could that looks bad in front of you, the wisdom of Allah that you don't know is behind that could be good.

00:23:56--> 00:24:48

Because that ship, there was a king, if he sees that job is that ship and the ship was okay, he will take the ship and he will enslave everybody on board of that ship, but when that crack have been in the ship, so it was a very bad ship and people are like are almost drowning. So that being said, let them go. So that was the reason for saving the ship and saving the people. So what you see something bad sometimes Allah is holding something good for you. That child, if he were to grow up, he will be a cafard He will give His parents a hard time and unless later on, replace them with a better one. So when we have a child and he dies, you never know. What could that child be. When he grows up, he

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

might be disabled, and you'd have a very difficult life with him. He might be a bad man later on. So accept the cotton of Allah. This is what certain can afford. keep reminding you

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

You and giving you lessons. The last story, we're going to share inshallah, in the second goodbye

00:25:25--> 00:25:44

hamdu lillahi wa salatu salam ala iva De La Nina Stouffer was head to La Ilaha Illa de vous la sharika was shadow under Mohammedan Aveda who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about a year

00:25:45--> 00:25:48

or so C'mon FC beta por la jolla surgeon.

00:25:50--> 00:26:03

Back to the last story, the fifth story in sort of gaff, it's the story of the night. He was a fair King, that a Lost Planet Allah has given him power, authority.

00:26:05--> 00:26:17

But he used it, he never abused it, as we see all around us in the world today, with a lot gave some people in some countries powers and they abuse them. And they go and they plunder.

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

And they subjugate people.

00:26:21--> 00:26:32

So Allah subhanaw taala gets a person or any government or any country power, is to do justice on Earth. It's to be fair.

00:26:34--> 00:26:51

So that King used whatever Allah subhanaw taala has given him to help a Lost Planet, Allah said it no hoomin coolessay in Sabbath basata so law gave him the power, the reasons to do good, and he used that to do good.

00:26:53--> 00:27:01

And Allah spotter told us that when he reached, you know, the people who live close to

00:27:02--> 00:27:50

the Jews, they asked him to build a wall between them and the Jews and Jews. And he helped them by building that wall. And so panela they keep thinking about Jewish everyday on that wall until they're almost done and they will just come out, but they you know, like, when they are always there, they say, will continue this and they forget inshallah, so it goes back again. So basically, when the last panel decides, which was one of the major signs of the approachment of the Day of Judgment, they will be able, you know, to remove that wall and they will come out, and they will demolish everything on earth. And that's one of the major signs of the Day of Judgment, which will

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

be in child law in other series inshallah.

00:27:54--> 00:28:39

But what I wanted to say is the last fitna is the fitna or the test of power and authority when Allah smart Allah gives you power, whatever the power be, it could be over your family. It could be over your department or your working, use it and don't abuse it. Use it to do good things and be fair amongst your children, with your wife, with your neighbors, with your people under you at work. And if you are a ruler is like amongst your subject and your people in your country. So let's summarize the five stories. The first story is the story of the fitna, in your deen in your religion.
