My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I welcome you all,
to episode number 30.
In Season Two of our series blast from the past Sierra from the 21st or Sierra in the 21st century Alhamdulillah. Yesterday, we traversed through an iteration in Sahih Muslim and some parts of integration in the Muslim of Imam Muhammad. And we covered the story pertaining to the travel by night by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, from mercy to haram to messages. And then the ascension to the heavens, the ascension to the heavens, whereby Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reached a place where no one else ever reached even jabril Adeney. Salam never got to this point. Right. So it's the highest point anyone from the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala ever
reached. And this gift was for no other than Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam. And just as a reminder, an abstract deduction that we extracted from this is that Subhanallah when we look at the years of difficulty before this, it is as if Allah was saying that this is the gift for the person who goes through this and the only one who goes through these tests, these difficulties, you know, the Muslims being persecuted, being born and often, you know,
into boycott and being afflicted by sanctions, and the death of two close people in close proximity, and then being stoned apart. After being rejected by the Polish, though, for 10 years, the one who is patient, patient, patient patient and gets through all of this, then Allah gives them a rank that nobody else has. You see, so Allah is actually making you stronger in your test to receive the gift that no one can get except the strongest one.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala, put Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through these motions, and then gave him a gift that nobody else not any Prophet, not any messenger, not any Angel received. Because we know jabril Adeney Salah, had to stop at a certain point, and the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to speak with Allah. Did he see Allah subhanho wa Taala? No, he didn't, as he says, in his Sunnah in a narration that How could I see Allah when there was just like, and we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala as light is veiled by light, Allah has a curtain of light valey Allah otherwise nothing in creation could exist. Nothing could exist because of the power of Allah
subhanho wa Taala.
So this is what we discussed. And we promised that today we will take the lessons inshallah, just before yesterday's end, but one of the last points we spoke about from
the story of Islam and Mirage, is the fact that when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned what happened, we had groups of people, we had those who disbelieved,
right? And how they disbelieved happened in ways somewhat some questioned him about the reality of the masjid. Some put their hands on their head, with their heads in their hands, as if to say This is madness, some
uttered words of sarcasm. But then we had Abu Bakar of the almohad.
Who, when they went to him and said, Look what your companion is saying, He's saying, madness, Abubakar to come a moment and said, Did he say? And they said, Yes, he said it. So Abu Bakr said that if he said it, then I believe it.
This is the reality of people, right? We have people who will just believe whatever the cost, and we have people who will believe because they are guided by Allah subhana wa Tada. And they believe whatever the cost, if he said it, it's authentic. I believe in
The first lesson brothers and sisters I want to share with you today is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is upon all evil. There's nothing impossible for Allah subhanho wa Taala what you think as imaginable is possible for Allah subhanho wa Taala and we know this from the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala says sudo Su Su Chi and the lady Asahi Abbe de, Allah says Glorified is Allah. Glorified is Allah who caused his messenger to observe the travel by knife, which means it is Allah who made him do that, which you and I see as impossible in terms of, you know, not in the normal sense we say this is impossible. A person goes from point A to point point being in at the click of
a finger and at the flash of light, right. But Allah says it is Allah who made it possible, Glorified is Allah Exalted is Allah because it is Allah who made it possible. And as we have said, time and time again, La quwata illa Billah there is no power, no mic except from Allah. Everything happens because of Allah because of his command. Nothing happens. Because of our own abilities in and of ourselves. Yes, we have a role to play, we have to put the ingredients in the pot, we have to cook it. But when the result appears, it only appears because Allah willed it. Fire does not bear except with the will of Allah and knife does not cut except with the will of Allah a pen does not
right, except with the will of Allah. The plants do not produce oxygen, except with the will of Allah. The sun does not rise except with the will of Allah, our hearts Do not beat except with the will of Allah understand this are servants of Allah Subhana Allah, imagine if Allah put our heart beating in our control,
we would have died a long time ago. Yes, we would have forgotten how many things do we forget? Imagine if you had to remember your heart beating, you are responsible to remember that your heart was beat. A time will come when you forget.
It will be over and say Subhanallah I forgot you won't even be able to say that. Because now it's too late. Right? It is Allah who makes the heart beat without you knowing without you feeling the Angel of Death does not cause death except with the will of Allah. And Allah does not need the angel of death for death to happen. This is Allah no leave shivers because of the wind except that Allah knows. And it shivers because of the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even if you said there's a million leaves on a tree, and a million trees in an area, and then you multiply that by every millimeter of land on Earth.
If you could do that, we say there's not one leaf that will shiver because of the wind touching it except that that leaf is shivering because of the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala who Allah subhanho wa Taala is, he is
the one upon who everything is dependent upon. That's why we comfortably say Hola, hola, La quwata illa villa. So this is point number one. Nothing is impossible for Allah. And we discussed earlier that Allah gave us Islam when we didn't even ask Allah for Islam. In previous episodes, we mentioned this. So imagine what Allah can give you. The old Eva, if you ask Allah, there's nothing impossible for Allah. We ask Allah to bless us with Alfredo Salah. I mean, you're
the second lesson that we learned, my dear brothers and sisters, is that
belief is a mighty matter.
And we learned this from the fact that what happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no mind could fathom. No mind can imagine this. Right? If you accept it, you believe this is a matter of belief. When you believe in Allah, and you haven't seen Allah, you believe in Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And you haven't seen him, you believe in the Quran, and you didn't see it being revealed. You believe in the surah in the Mirage, and you didn't see it happened. This is belief by Allah. If everything had to make sense to our brains and our intellectual ability, then what place would belief have in our life? Because that's not belief? You fathom that? Right? Your
brain understood it. Believe is a different level, where you submit, and that's what Islam is to submit to the will of Allah. It doesn't make sense to me, but I believe in Allah. I believe in his messenger. I didn't see them. But he said that this happened. So I believe it. It doesn't make sense to my mind, but I believe that it happened, right? This is belief
This is the value of money. Today we have a group of people who specialize in science. And they've taken upon themselves no belief in something known as atheism. And then they promote atheism with this context that
religion, and matters of religion cannot be proven number one. So if it can't be proven, it can't be understood number two. So if it can't be understood, it can't be believed. Number three, this is their formation,
except that they have a problem, that the whole foundation of the belief, which is science, surrounds a concept known as that which is physical, that which is tangible. It cannot understand what we call in the English language metaphysical. There's a difference between something physical and metaphysical. Right? A reality, which is not tangible. That's what requires belief. That's what requires belief. You didn't see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But you believe in it. Right? This is this is belief. For example, some of us have not been to for example, let's say
Mauritius, maybe some of us have, I haven't been to Mauritius, but I believe it exists. Why do I believe that it exists? Because so many people say it exists. It's impossible that all these people are lying. So I have belief, I don't have to go there. I believe that it exists. Right? This is belief, right? When we talk about religious belief, this is a higher level of belief, this miracle, this ascension to the heavens, this travel by night to Alexa. This requires belief, my dear brothers and sisters, and this is from the miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the greatest miracle which Allah gave him was the Quran.
And you know, what's amazing about the Quranic miracle is that every miracle of every prophet, including Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, we have to believe,
and we do have, and this is Islam.
But the miracle of the Quran, is a miracle, which we believe without seeing and we believe with seeing Allahu Akbar, because Allah made this miracle last night that we have it in front of us. We hear it at night in Salah we recited during the day we recited during the night when Elijah and Allah has inspired the oma to have it in a must have between two covers, we see the words of Allah we read the words of Allah, we hear the words of Allah, we memorize the words of Allah, this is the greatest miracle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And what makes it more special than the other miracles is that it is a tangible miracle. So
even if someone says, You know what, I didn't see the Quran being believed to say, well, 1400 years ago, here you go, we give it to you hardcore.
Right? So the lesson of belief, let's understand that and when you believe in Allah, thank Allah, don't take belief for granted. This ability of us to not doubt the israa not doubt the Mirage, to not doubt Allah to not doubt Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam thank Allah for it. Indeed it is guidance from Allah.
Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah is the one who Allah guides, no one can miss guide. This is guidance from Allah, thank Allah, raise your hands. See Ya Allah, I thank you. And I praise you for making me a believer, I thank you and praise you for keeping my heart clean. So my heart can accept this, that even though it doesn't make sense, to my mind, it makes sense to my heart, I believe.
Even though it's something that I cannot do myself today, we don't have the technology for it to happen. No one can move from point A to point B in the flesh of a light. But I believe in Allah and this belief is guidance from you. So I thank you Allah, thank Allah for Islam. thank Allah for belief. thank Allah for being a practicing Muslim as well, my dear brothers and sisters, and never take it for granted.
also understand my dear brothers and sisters as a side point, that this Sharia, it teaches us how to manage our emotions. And it teaches us how to manage our minds, for it teaches us that we should manage our emotions using our mind. And we should manage our thoughts and our mind using the shediac.
You get this that sometimes your mind tells you it can't be. But the Sherry says it can be your mind tells you impossible. The Sheree tells me impossible. Who do you follow in the circumstance? Your mind or the Sharia. You follow the Sharia comes back to belief. May Allah grant us the understanding. I mean,
one question that someone might ask is why did Allah make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam go to Jerusalem. Why did he go to Bethel, not to this could
Allah take him straight to the heavens. Indeed Allah could have the scholars say Rahmatullah here that one of the wisdoms was to make the ascension to the heavens believable to these disbelievers. Right? Because if you say you went to the heavens, they say impossible if you say went to be the lucky this, this is a bit plausible. Right? Okay, what's impossible isn't the flash of light, but at least now they have questions to ask, how was the masjid? Right? How was the windows? If there were windows? How was the structure if there was a structure, right? Because what we can allude from this is some of them. So but it will knock this right. So if Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when
they first said, he said, I went there, the flash of light. And in their mind, this is impossible. But then he described it to them as he did better than they better than the way they saw it, then this is a reason for them to at least say You know what? Maybe he's telling the truth about going to the heavens. So this is one of the reasons and this teaches us against strategy. Remember, we learned the lesson about strategy the other day, strategy is important. Allah is all wise. If we look at this wisdom, why Allah took him to Jerusalem, this is strategy, right? Allah was using this as a miracle for these people to believe that he is from them, but he's a messenger from Allah
subhanho wa Taala.
Then my dear brothers and sisters, when we talk about mosquito ups, and we talk about alkaloids, it's very important, my dear brothers and sisters that we mentioned
those things that will help us understand how noble metal oxide is, and how noble aliquot is. And before I begin a short summary, I must say at what will make us understand what is meant to do. What is this?
My dear brothers and sisters, firstly, this was the Festival of the Muslims. The Muslims would praise Salah, they would pray Salah facing Jerusalem, bait and darkness. This is point number one, point number two. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned he mentioned this place this beta luck this this area, not just the masjid but as we know the surrounding area because Allah bless the entire area. Right? Allah bless the entire area. The Masjid is a portion of the area. Allah blesses and its surroundings. Allah mentions it in his Quran masjidul.
Right, Allah mentions it in the Quran. And Allah mentions Palestine.
In other words, by mentioning it as the land that Allah has blessed. This is this area My dear brothers and sisters. This area also is the area that came under Muslim rule when Elijah Hill Hamed under the lead leadership of former rebels.
And this was a mighty day for the Muslims, and a mighty day for Islam. Because of this, the Roma heard about baiting messages and messages from the stories surrounding the israa in the Mirage
and the descriptions that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave now he's seeing it firsthand, this area.
And we know that this the mosquito, the place of worship of the previous prophets was abused and misused because of the difficulties between the Christians and the Jews. Right, because the Jews revered this place, right because of the animosity, sometimes it will be taken as a dump site. And this is what Omar saw
when he entered beta lock this after it was conquered. And the Sierra says, when we look at the Sierra in terms of
the conquest after the time of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam when Homer entered this place, the people who were part of this place they were taking him around in circles to try and you know, keep him away from what his heart wanted to see. Which was way too muchness.
And they tried and they tried, but Allah decreed that he sees it and as soon as he saw it, he said, Allahu Akbar, this must be it. This is what I know from the description of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a man with an increased event. They believed in the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam without seeing mosquito
and now he's seeing it and saying so can
we believe in the man who told us that which we are seeing now? So canon law, right. So this place came under Muslim rule under the time of armor, this place by the brothers and sisters, a person who prays one Salah here, one Salah here, there are some narrations which say he gets 500 it says if he prayed 500 Salah, but the more correct generations that go back to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam these narrations state that you get the reward
So, your Salah is multiplied
by silica This
is one of the three messages that one is allowed to travel for the sake of the masjid in Islam. We know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do not engage yourself in a journey because of a Masjid. This is a rough translation, except for three massages.
mssql Hara, which is in Mecca machineable the prophets Masjid in Medina, and Michigan.
is your speciality is my dear brothers and sisters. In fact, if we look at history, we see that the second mesquite in Islam is messed up with the first st being Michigan. So Canada
and Mexico is reported to have been 40 years or built 40 years after
Mr. Harun was built after the camera was established by Ibrahim alayhis salam, and he's married.
This is an important place. It has a long history in terms of of the world and the age of the world. In this place, my dear brothers and sisters that the gel, the Antichrist will not be able to enter for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the gel will not enter Makkah and he will not enter bait and luctus In fact, he said he Salah will slay the gel at her place near Beatle Marcus ilaha illa Allah
this place my dear brothers and sisters is a place that was a home to many of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a place that revelation came down upon. This is going to lock this again We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to cool our hearts and cool our eyes with the return of beta laughter this tweet right for people mean, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to return it to those who have declared Allah as well, to those who have accepted the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam amin, and we ask Allah with his most beautiful of names, and his most elevated of qualities to ease the plight of our brothers and sisters there and to remove the oppression afflicting them
daily and nightly I mean, yeah.
So this is what we learned, my dear brothers and sisters.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding. I mean, at this point, I want to stop here, and inshallah tomorrow, we'll continue with the remaining lessons from the era and the mirage. And by the way, there are still many.
But from in terms of the remaining moments, I want to commit to a promise, which I promised you, and that is to complete lessons. After the lesson of five. I said there was one which I purposely delayed, and one which I wanted to share, which we didn't share them. As for this, the one that I wanted to share, then it is the lesson of understanding that not every majority is correct. Not every majority is correct. Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters, it doesn't mean that the majority of people, they say this is how it should be that that is the correct thing. Where do we learn this from the courage? The majority were denying Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But if
the majority were abusing Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Were they correct or incorrect? They were incorrect. So this teaches us an important lesson. That Yes, the view of the majority has weight. But it doesn't mean that the majority said this, that it is 100% correct without doubt, or it is 100% correct. 100% of the time, impossible. And we learn this from this. In fact, in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're into
you the Luke and Sabine Lila, that if you were to follow the majority of people on earth, they would take you a stray off the path that leads to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is an important lesson My dear brothers and sisters.
As for the second lesson, the delayed lesson with purpose, then this is the lesson My dear brothers and sisters pertaining to the reality of this world and the reality of this life. My dear brothers and sisters, my dear mothers and fathers, my dear uncles and Auntie's the life that we live in, is not a place of everlasting happiness, and it's not a place of everlasting doom. It's not Jenna. No Is it janam It is a place known as the temporary before the perpetual it is the dounia in which our places us in to do the deeds that are needed insha Allah to get to jedna in the hereafter. this dunya has certain sunon has certain laws, has laws which are specific to him from these laws, my
dear brothers and sisters
that there will be days that are for us, and they will be days that are against us. They will be happy days and high days and they will be sad days and low days. This is the son of a lie in terms of this life. Allah will test us because the purpose of us as a creation, yes is to worship Allah. But Allah also says, Allah, the holofil Mota will hayata the blue
Allah that it is Allah who created most death will hire light to test us to make manifest which one of us is best in deeds. This is the son of Allah. Allah says in Surah Baqarah will
be a minute hope he will do everyone up to the minute Mr. Lee will enforce with the mirage. Allah says Indeed, Allah takes a person and an oath that indeed we will test you. We will test you with fear. And we will test you with hunger.
And we will test you with poverty. The stock markets will crash, your currency might crash.
So vanilla was just reading today. I don't know what happened with the Malaysian ringgit if it was affected, but there seems to be a drop not so.
You might be afflicted, your currency might crash. May Allah protect, you might lose your job. Your visitors might have to shut down.
And Allah says he will test us with matters of agriculture as well. But no one understand the servant of Allah, that our Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through greater tests. And as I've established time and time again, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not being punished. It doesn't mean that you're going through difficulty that Allah is punishing you and understand that Allah never left you just like this. Allah will test you and he gave us the remedy for getting through these tests. And that remedy is known as patience for Allah subhanho wa Taala. After he promises to test us, Allah subhanho wa jal essays, or abashiri saw beading and glad tidings to the
patient ones who are the patient ones here Allah and levena.
Allah says they are those that when the test hits them, when the calamity hits them, when the difficulty strikes them.
They say in
They say indeed we are from Allah and indeed to Allah We will return they say lillahi wa
ala Geneva masama. They say indeed for Allah is what he took, as was for Allah what he gave, and indeed everything that Allah causes to exist. It exists with an expiry date, it will expire. This is what they say. What does Allah tell us about these amazing people, these people who are patient when the calamity strikes, Allah tells us about them.
Allah says for these people is a special gift that Allah does not give accept to people who pass the test with patience, what is it Salawat from Allah, Allah gives them solid not from anyone else, not from the angels from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah then announces them as an Allah says.
Allah announces them as the right guidance. They are the guided ones. Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters, we always want science from Allah. Are we guided? Are we on the right path? When you are patient with difficulty? This is a love communicating with you telling you my beloved slave, you are right, the guidance you are right the guy that insha Allah, this is the message and the standard as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either I have Allahu taala that if Allah loves his lane, Allah will test him, test him with these tests that I mentioned, poverty, life, fear and so on and so forth. This is the reality of this life. And if you think you are
special, then know that the MBR AlLahi wa salatu wa salam o special and Allah tells us about them in Surah Quran Kabuto Allah says, has he been s a youth Roku? Hulu, Amanda, afternoon. That isn't enough for the people to say that they believe. I believe in Allah La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah says, You think it's enough just to give lip service and allow one test you, Allah says all fit
one layer lemon. dB, Allah says, indeed we tested the people before you. And through these tests, Allah will make manifest who truly believes Allah will make manifest who truly believes. And Allah will make manifest those who pay lip service.
But the belief is not. May Allah protect us. So never see everything as a punishment, my dear brothers and sisters, rather get yourself together, take a deep breath, stand up and face the test seeking assistance from Allah. Because understand, Allah will not give you a difficulty you cannot manage what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through? No as the Prophet went through, because he could manage it from Allahu alayhi wa sallam. No one from the Sahaba went through because he could manage it only sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah is just Allah doesn't oppress if you are going through it. As I've said, time and time again. Allah will get you through it, you are only
going through it because Allah knows you can. Allah wants to raise your rank. So Allah giving you that environment so that you can achieve greatness, my dear brothers and sisters, if greatness was achieved by just lying, having naps and drinking good water and eating good food, that we would all be people of greatness. Let's be honest, everyone would be a great person. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala the Emmys Allahu
Allah separates and filters, the good and the evil, the pure, and the evil, the good, and the bad. Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters.
Take these words as food for thought. Go home. ponder over your life in your situation and benchmark your reality to what's been said. Perhaps you will come with a conclusion that will motivate you that will inspire you and change your frown into a smile.
May Allah grant this gentleman with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam me, I love you all for the sake of Allah. Everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and is perfect. And any mistakes are from myself and j upon Nic colossal panda who attalus forgiveness or sallallahu wasallam Obara, Carlin Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
