my dear brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Welcome to a nice round figure, Episode 10 of our series, a blast from the past the Sierra in the 21st century so Pamela,
it feels like we began yesterday.
Look how time flies.
Time flying brothers and sisters is from the signs of km
Masuda la sala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that from the signs of Yama is the coming together of time, yet a power of wisdom and you still have 24 hours in a day. But blessings are removed from these hours. Such that 24 hours feels like just 12 hours and 10 days feels like five days. It is like this, you know,
our grandparents would start the day
with 10 things to do. And by the time they would finish those 10 things, you and I today, we start the day
with 10 things to do the day finishes and we've only done five
if Allah has mercy upon us, so hon Allah This is from the signs of fear and if the month of Ramadan doesn't make us realize this then what will because this is a month we waited for for the entire year. It finished and we were you know
that last minute of last Ramadan Can you remember? Last minute of last Ramadan? I'm sure you can even remember where you were the last minute of last Ramadan. It meant so much to you.
You felt so emotion of Ramadan is leaving.
It meant so much to you. Right? You felt sad?
Oh, it was mixed emotions. It's the next day. They have rejoice of rejoicing and being happy. And then we have the end of Ramadan. Can you remember that minute, but Allah Most of us can. Because there's such a strong emotion attached to the last minute of last Milan, we can't forget. And already we are about to reach the last minute of this Ramadan Lucha con. And by a lie it just feels like six months or less. Does it feel like one year ago you felt what you felt?
Does it feel like you celebrated the last read after Ramadan an entire year ago? Doesn't feel like that. It does not feel like that. It feels like yesterday. It feels like yesterday Subhana Allah Allah
Subhana Allah and that is why a little further means so much more to us brothers and sisters. It means so much more. Because, yes, this amaze and own man that lives between 60 and 70.
Yes, but the nations before the generations before us, not the nations the generations before us.
They had a punch to the day that you and I don't have the burden that they managed to do.
They better had a greater chance than ours. Because of the Baraka being slowly removed from time. As I spoke about I gave you the example of our grandparents. Today's Pamela you just plan to the US car of the morning you got off the evening let's say today's Friday you will read surah two calf and you will attend Juma and how does the day finish
and you think Subhanallah I still have to read surah two calf
Subhana Allah has cut off the evening. But now I have to resort to calf and then I have to do alpha Jim the day before sunset, the last hour on the day of Juma the Dow which goes on answered. Did you not feel that today that panic is your time is moving?
It's moving so let's look at that means even more to us. We need to witness it. We need this night which is better than 1000 months. We need it Allah He we need it. We need it brothers and sisters. May Allah make us witness a little better for me. I mean, brothers and sisters
We had an introduction, the one she had, and it was worth it. Because tonight is the first night of the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. And it is an odd night as well. We know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us to search for the night of power during the last 10 nights, and during the odd nights of the last 10 nights, and during the 27th night and only 10 nights.
And if you are diligent for one night and that is the night, Allah, Allah gives you a reward no one on earth can tell you. What is the effort of one night in front of a reward of 82? Yes. Does it mean anything? Is that a lot of effort? Nothing.
So multiplied by 10 the effort of 10 nights and I have the chance to earn rewards better than 83 years and four months.
Is that any effort? No, no 10 nights
10 nights off. And the reward is better than 1000 months what's?
What is 10 months? How long does it take you to build the house? How much effort? How much stress? How much money? How many? How much resources are used? How many days do you need think of things which matter to the end and how hard they are to come by? And then think of 1000 nights? Only 10 nights of events.
It's nothing right? So let's keep our heads in the right place brothers and sisters. And as I said yesterday, let's bring it this is the time to to bring it.
Brothers and sisters yesterday in our episode we discuss the marriage of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Khadija robiola who, there were many lessons, and I only shared with you a drop in the ocean.
I know you've heard me say this a lot of times and this is true.
Today inshallah we will discuss the rebuilding of the rebuilding of the character.
And this incident
happened before and he was selling became a profit. So we still in that period before profit, but we get into profit, we're getting very close. Why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 35 years ago, when this incident happened. the rebuilding of the Kava had to take place. The carbohydrate brothers and sisters during jahai, as taught to us by our scholars was made up of stones stacked above each other without any mud or clay to glue the rocks to each other. This is what I was calling teachers, there was no glue gluing agent between the rocks that was stacked above each other to make up because you can only imagine what might be wrong with these words. Right?
Because Don't forget my car was in my car was in a van. But we'll come to that. That caravan at that time also had a cross hung over it and and the caravan in terms of shaky at the time of the story that I'm speaking about was in the shape of a DD you know a DD you have a square and then a semicircle in front. Right the capital D they draw the capital D in the English language. This was the the shape this was the makeup of the cab. Right. So think of the cube now and then you got the agent, right? The semicircle in front. That was the complete curve. Right the cube with the semicircle wasn't as it is now with half a wall attached on the camera.
This is Africa was
now my cause event, as I said,
and the cafe did not have a wall around it.
The wall around the Kaaba came at the time of photography.
Allah who is reputed to have widened the courtyard of decap meaning what you and I call the mythos there was no wall. So if water came down from the mountains, it would go all the way to the Kaaba and stop at the cabin. The Wall came at the time of Oman. Why because he felt that every home has a courtyard and people were keeping their homes to making their homes to close to the camera. This is the car that deserves a courtyard. So he bought out those homes. He bought out those homes and demolished it. This is what he did. This was a leader.
So there was no wall surrounding the cabin. The water would come from the mountains because the valley surrounded by mountains that we've been to Macau, we've seen the mountains around Macau.
Got the water and you see these regions? It's told me it's violent, right? So you got flash floods as well. Why because the ground is hot like literally, literally right? Many years. You see when they want to take the ground, it's not like in greener countries where you can just take a spade and dig you can't. It's rock hard underneath is absolutely dry. There's no moisture whatsoever. When water falls from the sky, all you get is runoff, you don't get seepage, you only get runoff. And obviously at that time, there was no drainage. So the water will come and hit the carpet. So when Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam was 35, a storm happened, a flood happened. And the water on
the cabin was so severe at that time, that it caused the foundation of the character to become weakened.
The carpet was on the verge of collapse.
It needed to be re constructed.
Before we go to the reconstruction, a little bit about the cloth. This is just general knowledge for you all the cloth that was on the camera
was on the Kaaba as a practice before Islam as it was a practice after Islam Some say goes back to the summary that in the salon but I haven't come across anything, any solid evidence to say it's very balanced.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
But at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam before he became a prophet, the Kaaba was also covered. Was it covered in black, as we see today? No, it was covered in a plethora of different kinds of sometimes why sometimes green, sometimes yellow and
the scholars say
this I learned from
his writings they say the black color came to the Kaaba at the time of now since
he introduced this black color he passed away in the year 622. after his arrival, so very late after the possible loss of the lower eyelid he was he introduced the black cloth and after this black cloth was introduced, really was the color change really was the color changing. Now, the Kappa we see today. This is carrying on from what it comes to how the copper was done the capital D the copper we see today is not the copper was constructed by Ibrahim and he salah and it's very
way the Hebrew poetry. He was married
in the country Samuel
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the first Jews in Surah Baqarah he tells us about Ibrahim and he said
that he said
have a loss of kindness
and boots, the house of Allah kinda attack.
This is an amazing I especially for you and I now, in these last 10 days this is a footnote every day I have to come with some footnotes.
We see a specific instruction to build the cabin.
to specific people Ibrahim Allen salah and as varied as
the place is specific as well. The Kaaba cannot be erected anywhere else besides this place, a specific instruction to specific people related to a specific place. No one else could have done this. No one else could have done this. It was impossible for anybody else to do. But when these two prophets of Allah finished building the Kaaba, what do they say?
Oh Allah accept this from us love Allah but as if, as if there were other people that could do it.
Like Sarah, we read and many reads for Alaska, except from us.
Not except from others and not from us. This was specific and a specific instruction to specific people involving a specific place. No one else could have done this. No one else was in the running this was an
but they say
our acceptance, brothers and sisters, our pipes used to teach us
taught us in fact
that the right of the slab is to learn
And the right of learning is to practice
and the right type of practicing is to become more humble.
You want me to repeat it?
is to let
the right of the Shahada La Ilaha Illa. Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, it's, it's right, is that you lead.
By here it has a whole chapter, an entire chapter in history he's named Babel in
the chapter of knowledge before speech and the rise of Islam is to learn, you cannot act before learning. And when you learn the right of the knowledge, which you've learned is to practice it and act on it.
And when you act, and Allah has blessed, what is worship, the right of that is for you to become more humble.
And we learned this from Ibrahim and a Salah.
They didn't become boastful we did it.
We special, Allah chose es specific instruction to specific people, specific place, high five, come on. Right, you're allowed to get happy. You're allowed to give each other high fives which are loving you happy that Allah bless you to work. But what you understand what I'm saying, they didn't become arrogant. They didn't feel we are better than the next person. It wasn't the case that someone had to be. So he felt better than the person who didn't have a BA or a sister was that he jab. So she felt better than the sister who did. or a brother attends the masjid for Salah. So he felt he's better than the person who doesn't, and so on and so forth. Or a person who worships Allah
and they feel they've reached a level of spirituality, they've reached a level of spirituality, and they begin to relax, they become pleased with themselves.
Know the rite of worship is that you become more humble Subhana Allah
when they tend to lie to the lower up except for us to have Allah we don't know. We don't know if our deeds are accepted.
Another example, that substantiates what I'm saying.
And relevant to the nice is the heading of Ayesha Robbie Allahu, and
when she asked Rasulullah sallallahu I didn't even
if I witnessed the night of power, what should I do? What should I say? What did he tell sallallahu? I
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,
forgive you, for what you are the face of
not only do you forgive them, you wipe them out completely so that no trace is left behind
You love to face our sins, to remove them in a way that there's no trace, no angel
book can prove. That's how you forgive us. That's how you love to forgive us. For so you face my sense. This is what he taught Tesla.
Now think about think about it.
spends a month fasting.
She spends the nights reviving the rights as per the instruction of Rasulullah sallallahu. It he was the best of generations, taking guidance from the best person to have walked the face of the earth.
Being charitable, being diligent with the Quran, remembering Allah, worship of worship, worship after worship, worship.
Allah who tells her that if you see the night ask Allah to forgive Baba, Baba, doesn't this teach us that the right of activities to be more humble? Surely does.
There's a statement that I think it's attributed to
a powerful state. He says in the law.
Allah has hidden to things in two things.
Allah has hidden your knowledge of his acceptance of your a better when the worship is hidden from him.
Allah has hidden it from us.
As hidden our knowledge of him being happy after you worship hear from us allies hidden from us.
And Allah has hidden the knowledge of his own Leah from amongst you.
What an amazing statement.
And I think it is a statement of it is
an amazing statement.
Because we're lucky if you ponder over it teaches us to be humble after a bad day. And it teaches us to continue intending Allah subhanho wa Taala. Never ever to relax. Think about it. Allah has hidden your knowledge of his happiness after you worship is hidden from you.
So you don't know. So what do you do you relax? No. You carry on worship, you carry on striving, you say you're
in the character semi rally, you say Allahu
Allah even when I intend to, I'm so weak in my intention. I'm so weak in my application. I'm so weak in my effort, by the bad mistakes. And remember, it's not specific instruction, it's instruction to the wrong man. So Ibrahim said that we have a greater right to say yeah, our principles and our effaced our sins, forgive the weaknesses of our election, strengthen our relationship and reward us in full India Allah you are the Almighty and you need our worship to
Your Majesty is Your Majesty whether we worship your we don't. Yeah, Allah forgiving us is nothing for you forgive us, Allah.
This is what worship mandates that you be more humble. If your worship and revival of the citizen and looking after the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala causes you to feel you are better than somebody out.
Be careful, my dear brothers and sisters decaf you are not giving your worship is hot.
That's dangerous, true lashes. Gross humbleness within us because you know, you know we have good open Allah. But we know that we don't know if Allah is exempted.
So he says this, so we continue striving and looking after the rights of Allah. And he says, And Allah has kept hidden the knowledge of his Olia amongst us so you don't know who
it's from. But what does this do to us? What does this do to us?
It causes us to be good to everybody.
It causes us to strive to look after the rights of everybody not pick and choose because Allah is divine wisdom has kept knowledge of his only hidden from the monsters.
So we'd be good to everybody. In the hope that one day insha Allah, we would have helped one person who is from the ollie of Allah, and they will raise their hands if they could do our for us. And that will be the opening of the studio and after
me, right along footnote but unnecessary. Given the night given the setting, given the instruction, we're talking about Rob Burnett.
It's come back to the lesson.
The character that we see now is not the character that was constructed by it's not the same carpet, but the same time right is the cabinet the same carpet that was constructed by Ibrahim and is married
because the required rebuilding and renovation several times due to natural disasters and also due to manmade disasters. Right.
So it was such a negligence
cause the car
a need to be renovated.
And if we look at history till now obviously our lesson is not about the history of the camera.
But just for your information. Look at the renovations that happened to the cabin, perhaps the last renovation and Allah knows best was the renovation that happened in 1986 during our time, right who was born after 1996 anybody? Masha Allah ha of 96 guys, if
you forgot you don't know it could be 94 maybe 9495 9696 Mashallah, some people are so young. They don't even show up when they were born.
1996 right, and this renovation inshallah will last a few centuries and Allah Subhana
What are the most best Why? Because the latest technology at the time and materials was used in renovating the cafe that the renovation that took place in 1996, the latest technology and materials was used to renovate the character. During the time stones were replaced. And the foundation was made as strong as the foundation can be. And a brand new roof was installed to the cabin. A brand new roof was also installed to the cabin for your information. Now windows in less than
35 years old but the Kaaba became a parish, as we've heard through our previous cities were in charge of the affairs of copper, so they had to do something about but to do something about it, they had to demolish it. And every time they thought about demolishing it, they remembered 35 years ago
when birds with purpose came and demolished an army of elephants. So how can we?
What are we going to do? Catch 22? Have you heard that phrase in the English language? Catch 22? We don't know what to do.
Right? If we leave it, it's a problem. If we do it with your partner, what do we do?
And whilst they were debating, and contemplating make a believable movie, well known prominent person
he came in said, What do you want to do? He said, we need to break the carpet. He says, Are you breaking it to damage it and harm it or to better it and fix it? to do good to him? Of course, we're doing it to do good to it. So he said,
but they will
do, he picked up his tools. And he started developing the character. The other side, we wait, what we'll do, we'll wait. We'll see tomorrow, if something happens to him. We won't continue. If nothing happens, we'll join you because why we also want credit to our tribes, right that we were part of the rebuilding of the Kappa We can't leave here. So they woke up the next day. So eight, nine is fine. But back we continue. So they joined him and they ducked the carpet out to the foundation of Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam is Marie. And he says
now what happened was they split the work between them. So each tribe could have the honor.
And each tribe worked on a portion of the cabin. Now what he did,
he said to them, this is the way forward, we will only use what you and I quote quote unquote,
meaning we will only use pure money. interesting statement, meaning we don't want money from
interest. Usually, we don't want money from Gambia we don't want money from alcohol and so on and so forth. Only pure Money, Money earn through trade, through trade, that is the only money which we want.
or money through inheritance, anybody which is considered pure, there is only money which they want. So they gather the money and they build the car. Now, what happened was before
the Kaaba was complete, their money ran out,
their money ran out.
This is the story why the semicircle in front of the queue is detached, and justice left as a reasonable, they didn't have money. So what we will do is we will complete it in the way you see it. Now the Kaaba wasn't
two doors, in fact, it's an empty and an exit. Now it only has one, right? And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left the camera as it was. And he told me
if your people are not new Muslims, I would have returned the cabinet for him and he said, the wisdom of Allah. So Allah while he was right, allow a man to settle in the house. Let's not we know this cafe says to them.
Right, but Eman is more sacred right now keeping them as Muslims, if we touch this camera, now they will renounce Islam, and we will be back in warfare.
somebody came, he constructed it to the original way. if my memory serves me, right, and then it was constructed back to the way we find it now. And then when another leader of the Muslims came in, he consulted the mathematic and said, should we turn it back to its original way? He said No, leave it as it is. Because what we don't want now is for every new leader to come in and play with the car, turn it this way and turn it that way. One would support what another leader didn't say that we take it let me use that you had and then another let's say no
The last one to get according to, according to the way of Ibrahim and use that he had a medic refused and the cover is as we see his or his with the one two as we see it today. Now, he happily worked together building the car for this process brought them together hamdulillah until and that was the point when they had the issue with Hydra. Now, the hatchery also obviously is one we have to put in place, which we tried to have the the Quraysh were all responsible collectively for the affairs of the county. But which tribes have the honor of putting the stone in its place?
So a big argument broke out, and it got when I say it.
Right, it got ugly. And it lasted a few days, and almost became a war now between the tribes.
It almost became a war between the tribes until Allah inspired the oldest man, they said his name was
this fabulous movie right here we have Maya.
He said, Look, that's I have a solution. Let's try the solution. Listen, hear me out. Let's see if you agree. So what's your solution? He said, Look, let's wait for the first person to walk through this door.
And the first person that walks through this door, we will ask him to solve this problem.
This is a noble task building the copper Why should we divide? So they agreed.
And lo and behold, the first person to walk through this door was a man
to become a prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, 35 years of age. He walks in when they saw him they rejoiced not not one time, all of them rejoice.
Just was the one we would not have anyone rather than other than Him to judge in this affair, Allah. So Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Get a cloth. He took the hijab, he put it in the middle, and he told each type to grab a piece of cloth, an edge of the cloth. And they did and he said now raised to its place, and they raised together and he took it himself and he put it in
the water unhappy with Allah.
Allah opens that Allah opens the hearts.
So this is what happened.
