Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu how to win a salir lotto soudal Karim I'm Albert rubella him in a shape honorable Jean Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, probably shortly surgery where silly Emery Wilderotter melissani of Coco Lee probenecid. In
inshallah, today we're going to learn about LTM and Cobra. Remember there is lpm sola. And there's also lt ama and Cobra. What is a surah? The minor and what is an Cobra,
the major. So what is the minor piano the minor resurrection. It is basically when a person dies death because when a person dies, his hereafter begins. We learned earlier that as soon as a person dies, he's given the news of either reward or punishment, his grave is either a place of reward or it is a place of punishment. Then we also learned that the grave is the first Menzel from the miasma of the hereafter. If a person survives there, then what will follow will be easier. And if a person is punished over there, then what will come later will be much more difficult. So I'll chiamata surah is something that every single person must prepare for, because every single person is going
to meet it. There is no person who can avoid it. I'll chiamato Cobra, the major resurrection refers to the occurrence of the day of judgment and what will happen after the Day of Judgment. Now, what is it that will? How is it that the day of judgment will happen? We learned that there are some signs and they are basically times of tribulation, when many catastrophe things will occur, such as the coming of the jail, the coming of your children, my judge, and every person is not going to face it. Isn't that so? There are many people who Allah soprano Tara will say from it, but there are others who will see it. Now when is it that those signs are going to appear? Really? Allahu
Allahu Allah. We do learn from the Quran and Sunnah about certain signs and from the sooner we learn about the detail as to when certain things will happen when certain events will take place. But it seems, from what we hear that it's going to be after a very, very, very long time. This is why we don't pay much attention to the coming of the jail, becoming of the becoming of a huge majority, the coming of resigning center, we don't really pay much attention to that. We do have some idea of Yeah, it's gonna happen someday. But what do I have to do with it? I'm probably going to be in my grave by the time it happens. But the fact is that every prophet of Allah warned his people about
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he warned the people about the gel, described the gel to them, not once, not twice, but again and again, in so much detail, that we learned that the people would get afraid. Once the prophets of Allah said I'm sorry, I should have been lower now she was crying. And he said, What happened? She said, I remembered the fitting of the gel, and that frightened me.
So, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam comforted her that if I am alive, then I will defend you, I will surprise you in Sharla
and if I am gone,
then inshallah Allah will protect you. So anyway, we see that the Sahaba, from what they were taught, they were so ready for the gel, they were so ready for the major signs of the hour, because really, when the Day of Judgment can occur at any time, then that means that the signs will also appear suddenly.
Yes, there are many things that will happen before then there is a passage of time that will go by, but who knows the rate at which things are changing today. You never know. If we may be protected, our children might be exposed and if we worry for ourselves, should we not worry about our children?
So it begins from elk Yamato Cobra is basically the Day of Judgment. But remember, it begins from before that in the sense that part of belief in a cobra is also believing in the signs of the Day of Judgment.
Now the question is when is it that OPM Cobra will take place? When is it that it will occur? And so to hedge it number seven, we learn
what unnecessary or that it Aton low labor fee her or anila however, I think men feel
that indeed the hour is coming. There's absolutely no doubt about it, and that Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves
There's no doubt about it Allah will definitely resurrect them. elsewhere. Also, we learned We're in assata.
Thea tune. There are so many verses that talk about the certainty of the Day of Judgment. The people of Makati continue to ask the Prophet sallallahu sallam, where's aluna? on who? They ask you? Is it really the truth? Or iraq be say yes by my Lord. It is the truth in the hula, Hakuna antem emergency and you will not at all cause any failure in sort of there yet we learned with that he at the La Fille homiletical claw fell jetty at use la fille mocha siematic en la in number two or Duna la saw what you are promised is definitely true. We're in Edina lower pair and the judgment will shortly be established. So, there are many verses that point to the certainty of the hour, but when is it going
When is it going to happen? Allah knows. However, what we have been informed is that it is near it is not far. If Dada Batista to
the SIR The hour has approached, it has drawn near when Shut up, and the moon has played. This is right at the beginning of sort of coma. Likewise, we learn at a little lucky fella.
The Star julu the command of Allah meaning the hour is coming so do not seek to hasten it it is on its way in the homie arona who were either one or who are Riba they seem to be far but in reality, it is very near Allah subhanaw taala sees it to be very near.
Now how near is it? in Hades we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the lifespan of this oma in comparison with the past nations is like the time from muscle prayer until the sun sets.
So what has happened thus far, is like how morning until I saw and the time of this oma is from well from us until sunset.
Now compare the time of hustle to the day that has passed, how much time is it? It's very short. It's very short.
So the time of this oma, you understand, it's like from us until until mockery.
In other hobbies also, we learned what is left for you in comparison to the nations who came before you is like the time between also prayers and motive prayers. In another Hadith, we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I and the hour have been sent like this. And he joined his two fingers together with two fingers, the pointer finger and the middle finger.
And the aroma they explained it as this, that if you compare the two fingers, right, they're both almost equal in their size. First of all, they're right next to one another. Secondly, they're almost equal in their size. But the middle finger is slightly longer isn't it took slightly longer take it as two bars in a graph.
Okay, two bars like no bar graph, you see bar chart, all right, one bar is shorter and the other bar is taller. So what is it true that the difference between the two is just that much meaning the distance between the height between the shorter bar and the taller bar. So basically, the time that has passed already on this earth is like the index finger. And the time that is remaining until the Day of Judgment is the index finger in relation to the middle finger.
So this is the time that is left. And the time that has passed is much more. So how do we understand, in so many verses in so many bodies, when it is mentioned that our is near? What does it mean? It means that the time that has passed is much more than the time that is left.
And if you think about it for every person also, he doesn't know when he's going to die, and every passing day is bringing him closer to what his death
is bringing him closer to his death. And as regards to the exact time of the hour, have we been informed about it? No, we have not been informed about it. We learned called in Mr. Elmo here. in the lobby. It's knowledge is only with who my Lord called in America. In the law, it's knowledge is only with Allah. Now, is this something that we should be trying to find out about? Is it permissible to find out as to when the day of judgement is going to occur?
Is it no
Should we spend our time? Should we invest our time trying to figure out when the Day of Judgment is going to happen? No. Why? Because no matter how much we try to figure that out, are we ever going to know it? No. Because remember the angel gibreel. He came and he asked the prophets, all of a sudden, in the many questions that he asked the prophet in order to teach people, one of the questions was, when is the hour going to be? What was the answer that he was given?
What was the answer that he was given? That the one who is being asked does not know any better than the one who is asking?
Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden us from talking without knowledge.
So if a person tries to guess when the hour is going to be, is it ever going to be a correct guess? an educated guess? No, because we don't have any knowledge with regards to it. We don't we have not been informed as to when it's going to happen. In the Quran, we learn yes aluna Quran SRT, a Yana Musa, they ask you about the hour? When is it anchorage? Meaning when is it going to take place? Allah says fever anthem in the claw her Who are you to talk about it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam has been told that you have no knowledge to say anything about it. If the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not required to speak about it was not allowed to speak about it. Because he didn't know then
Who are we?
Then who are we? So the reality is that we do not know about when it is going to happen. And instead of wasting our time and trying to figure out when is the hour going to occur? What should we be focusing on our piano our day? Because that is going to happen much sooner. And that is most certain.
Now the question is, why is it that Allah subhanaw taala didn't simply tell us about when the hour is going to be? Is there any benefit? Is there any Heckman what's the hikma?
Yes, because if we were told it's going to happen in this in this year,
then what would people do?
They would forget everything. Until then.
All right, because this is what we do. If we know that we have to go to a certain time somewhere, then we forget about it until we actually have to leave. We know that we have a test, then what do we do? We defer studying for it until the night before? Or until the morning off? Right? But if we are told, you're going to be tested anytime, then what happens? We are prepared for it always. All right. And also, you see a lot of panel data could have simply not informed people about the coming of the hour. But he did tell them a lot of panel data did send messengers and the messengers told people, the hour is coming.
Why? Because the people when they have something to look forward to in the future, and something to prepare for, then it makes them more productive,
isn't it so when you have something coming up in the future, even though you don't know when exactly but you know, it's coming. But what happens, you have an aim, you have something to strive towards, it keeps you busy, and it helps you stay focused, it helps you remain productive. So there are many many wisdoms in this and Allahu Allah. But the reality is that the hour is definitely coming. And we must believe in it and we must prepare for it.
Now with regards to the hour, remember that there are signs that there are a Sha pasar a Shabbos. Sir, in truth Mohammed is number 18. Allah says for halion Luna in Lhasa, and to Mombasa, are they just waiting for the hour to come upon them suddenly, for the jash la to hair, it's a shot are definitely here, meaning some signs have already occurred and some are on its way. And others when they will start occurring it will be like the beads of a string, that once the string is broken, once the necklace is broken, then what happens the beads the pearls, they fall out one after the other one after the other uncontrollably. So some signs have already occurred, some are occurring
now. Some will occur soon and others when they will occur, then they will come right one after the other such that the day of judgment will occur. Now the question is, is there any benefit in knowing the signs in studying the signs of the Day of Judgment? Because if it's going to happen close to the Day of Judgment, and let's say we are far from it today, what's the benefit is
is as beneficial knowledge, it is beneficial knowledge.
But remember that it should be given as much attention as it deserves, not less, not more.
Because some people they say, why are you concerned about the the science of the hour? You don't need to know anything about it. Perhaps it's not going to happen in your life. So they ignore it completely. They don't think it's worth knowing. And others their main hum emblem in life is what? The signs of the Day of Judgment. So if anything new and strange happens, they ask is this one of the times of the day of judgment, they see something strange happening, and they think it's one of the signs of the Day of Judgment.
Right? Or their main concern is so they keep reading about it, they keep studying about it, they keep doing research about it. And they're not satisfied with what we learn from the Quran and Sunnah. So they look into what others have to say about it.
All right, what people have to say, what scientists have to say, what other religions have to say about it. And this is their main concern.
And many people, they're lost in this, they will not pay much attention to the matter of solder, as they will pay attention to the matter of the gel, or do not dude. And people, they become so excited about it, that they want that the sign should already occur. So they say yeah, Julian might judge, you know, this particular people of this country there. Yeah. Dude, I know that jam. It's not a person. It's United States of America.
They will say such things.
And they will interpret the signs according to their own understanding and past very, you know, decisive comments concerning them, which are baseless. So, is there any benefit in knowing the science? Yes, there are benefits and we should know what they are so that we can focus on them. First of all,
when we study them, we can know them when we know them, we can believe in them. Is it important to believe in them? Yes, because of their mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. Then Eman in the Quran. And Sunnah requires that we also believe in these matters. So it will complete and perfect our event. It will complete and perfect our email. It will also reaffirm and strengthen our image and how that when we see the signs occurring, because remember, there are minor signs and major signs. When we see the minor signs at least taking place in our lives right before us or in our lives. This will reaffirm and strengthen our faith. That Yes, what the man has said is true what the prophet
sallallahu Sallam warned off is true, then likewise, it will strengthen our belief in the Day of Judgment, that if the Ashraf if the signs are so serious, and catastrophe, imagine how serious the Day of Judgment is going to be. Imagine how catastrophic the Day of Judgment is going to be. If just the signs are so horrific, then what is it that will take place on that day. So it will strengthen a person's belief in the Day of Judgment. And also we see that if the prophets or the Longson have warned us about those signs, then there must be some benefit in that.
He warned us so that we can be prepared for it. He warned us so that we can be prepared for it, so that we learn about them. And we take a lesson from them. And we teach our children who will teach their children so that if the signs appear in their lives, they are ready, because there are some important guidelines that the prophets of Allah gave concerning the signs. So for example, with respect to the jab, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that when you hear the gel has appeared, then don't go to him avoid him. So is it necessary for our children to know about this? Yes.
Because what happens anything new anything strange. People just want to go and see it.
They just want to go and see it. But what did the prophets have a lot of time say about the job? When you find out he has appeared, then keep away? Don't go near him, avoid him. Likewise, with regards to certain signs that the length of the day will be very long, like one year almost. So the people asked about that, how is it that we're going to pray? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that according to the day and night, meaning as you see, the day and night changing as you will preset at the time of budget, we will pray at the time of so you will pay us even if it comes multiple times you will pray like that if it comes once you will pray like that.
So there are important guidelines that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave likewise certain people that he informed us off that this kind of people will appear having these kind of characteristics. And when the prophets have a lot of them said curse them, or when he said fight them, then what does it mean?
mean that we should keep away from such people, we should not be like them, rather we should be different from them. Then there are certain places about which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us, like for example, Medina or for example, a sham
that these places will be where hate is where the gel will not be able to enter. So adhere to these places. So in the times of fitna, this is where a person will find refuge and shelter. All right, so there are certain guidelines the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave, which we can only know when we learn about the signs of the hour, or you might say has nothing to do with me. But remember, your children? And what about their children? What about their children? every prophet of Allah warned about the judge, where's the jail did not appear even in the time of the last prophet sallallahu wasallam. But why is it that they weren't so that this knowledge will pass on generation to
generation, because it's a very serious matter, it's a very serious matter, it will be a time of great tribulation, where protecting one's Eman will be very, very difficult. So if we want that our image is protected, the amount of our children is protected, then it is necessary that we
study this and we also tell our children about it. I remember I was very very young, when I learned about the gym, and I was frightened.
I was scared. But it was from that point onwards that I started making this regularity in sauna alone mainly I was becoming
I that will cover what are the becoming
Adobe Johanna, what are we becoming fit nothing messy had the gel. What are all the becoming fitness in my hair? What is the prophets of Allah zone used to make this draw in every corner. And some scholars say that Salah is not complete until a person says this door.
Because the prophets Allah isn't used to say the soul regularly. He wouldn't say that Salaam until he said this door.
So it is necessary that we pass on this knowledge. Because if Allah protects us, then it is our responsibility that we be concerned about our offspring. Now, there are some important matters about the signs, some important points that we must be clear about with respect to the signs of the hour. Remember that they must be based on authentic sources, authentic sources, you will hear people talk about strange things and they will say it's one of the signs of our and I read it somewhere on the internet.
I read it somewhere on the internet. Is that an evidence? Okay, if you read it on the internet and a reference was given Bukhari Muslim, a book of Hadith was mentioned. Okay, that's acceptable. But just people talking, or writing based on their desires and imagination. That is not true. And we should not just accept it, just because somebody's saying it. Also, one more thing. There are many, many movies that revolve around this issue.
And if you ever watch them, or if you see somebody watching them, some, you know, a scene here a scene there. You'll be disturbed by those images and these concepts also. But what does it show to us that people have this idea that the end of time will occur, there will be a time when this world will come to an end?
Right? It is built in within the human factor.
You know that you're not here forever and you know that the Spirit is also not here forever. human existence is one day going to finish.
Now what happens is that we start watching these movies for the purpose of entertainment and then it starts to affect us in our subconscious. And then these things we start talking about in our language also. So it's necessary that when it comes to the matter of the signs of the hour, we take our knowledge and Eman only from where from Quran and Sunnah. Not what we see in movies, not what we hear people talking about, but only from where the Quran and Sunnah because this is all a matter of life. And labor is something that the knowledge of which we only take from where Quran and Sunnah. Also, remember that the signs will occur, we don't have to make them occur.
All right. So they will occur when Allah subhanaw taala wills we don't have to do anything to make them occur.
So for example, we learned that certain treasures will be revealed in certain parts of the world. But what's the concern of people they go there and search and search and search is there any gold here is a any hidden Island here in search of that treasure.
Also, remember that the signs of the hour are not to be used.
To establish rulings,
because the prophets of the law said this will happen. So it is Helen, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this will happen. So it is hard on everything that is mentioned in respect to the signs of the hour. Remember, it is not necessarily something that is evil.
Most of it is evil, which is why the prophets of Allah mentioned it and warned us about it. But it doesn't mean that it is always going to be wrong. And likewise, we cannot derive rulings from them. So, for example, one of the signs is that a woman will travel by herself from one place to another, and she will have no fear. All right. Now, this does not mean that a woman can travel without a Maho.
All right, this doesn't mean that a woman can travel without a Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that killing will become very common, that this doesn't mean that a person goes on killing everybody saying, Oh, yeah, the prophets of Allah warned about it. So what can we do?
It's permissible, it's not permissible. The Sharia, the Sharia is what we have to follow the signs of the hour. That is something that we have to believe in. All right, we don't have to make it happen. We don't establish rulings based on it. Also, we must understand the signs on their apparent meaning. So if the prophets a lot of times that a person such as the jail, a person named the jail will appear, then we understand that he is a man, not a system of government. All right, not, not a hidden mafia or anything like that. No, it is what a person
likewise of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said something about gold. All right, then it is gold, not money, not oil. All right. If the Prophet sallallahu Sallam described mentioned and animal a creature that will appear, then it is it that but we'll have all right, it isn't that but we'll have we don't have to say that it's going to be a human being. No, it's that but we'll have we will take we will understand the signs
at their surface,
all right, at the surface, we will not interpret them saying that all this is only figurative, and this is what was meant. Allahu arland. So this is why we have to take them at their apparent meaning. Also, remember that we cannot restrict the meaning to a specific incident. Or rather, we cannot restrict assign to a specific incident.
So for example, the prevalence of a lot of Santa mentioned about one of the signs of the hour being a great fire a huge fire. Alright, and the probability of autism described that fire from where it will emerge, what its effect will be right now, there have been many great fires in the past. And there have been many, many great fires in recent past, but we cannot say Oh, that was a sign of the Day of Judgment. Because How do you know?
How do you know? possible? It's possible that it was, but remember that it may happen again. And it may happen many many times. And what the prophets Allah said was actually referring to is something that is going to come later
All right. Now, there are certain signs which have definitely occurred, like the coming off the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like the splitting off the moon. But there are many other things which those have also said, we have seen or the tablet instead, we have seen, but remember that they can happen again.
Those events can happen again. They can take place many times. And remember that because they are a matter of the unseen the signs of the hour. This is why even though we don't fully comprehend as to how it's going to happen. For example, Yeah, dude, there's so many numbers.
Right? That out of 1000 people 999 or who? Yeah, dude, man, dude, there's so many in number. All right. Now person might say, well, if they're the if the dude like dude exists today, then where are they?
What part of the earth?
I mean, we know about every square kilometer of the earth. Right? This is why we have it on a map. Right? You go to Google Earth, you can go anywhere. So where are you at? Dude, my dude hiding.
This is a matter of,
of the unseen. Even though we don't fully understand it. We believe in it. That gel is a person he is alive today.
In a hadith and Muslim and long Hadees and Muslim we learn about how somebody even met the whole conversation took place. Authentic Hades. All right, but the jail is captivated somewhere he's locked up somewhere where exactly a low erland the profit or loss and difference
Describe the place. But we don't know, that person might say, Well, we know about every Island and every place on the earth. No, we don't know, we still don't know. There are many, many parts of the earth
with which people have no contact with. In Brazil, there are certain tribes with which people have had no contact with. And they have been seen, alright, by people on on their helicopters or what, but
people have had no contact with them. And this is just one example. There may be many, many more places that we have no idea about.
Right? So just because we don't know, or just because we don't fully understand. It doesn't mean that we reject it, we will still believe in it. All right. So these are some important matters about the signs of the hour. And also one more thing that the scholars they have tried to list the order in which the signs will occur. But certain signs, yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that he then resigned, he said, Yeah, Judah, Matt, Jude, and so on and so forth. These signs will occur in a particular sequence in the sequence we have been informed about, but others we don't know about their sequence. All right. So the scholars have suggested, but remember that it is not something
that is something that is definite.
So anyway, let's look into the signs of the hour. Now remember that the signs of the hour, they are major, and they're also minor. They're minor signs of the hour, and the major signs of the hour. What are the minor signs of the hour, those that will occur long before the actual day of judgment.
And the major signs of the hour are those that will come right before the day of judgment. So for example, a minor sign of the hour, could happen 2000 years before becoming of the Day of Judgment. But a major one will occur only
a few years before the coming of the Day of Judgment. Also minor. It's called minor because it's not something that catastrophe.
I mean, it's telling us about something evil that will happen, but remember that there will also be something good. But when the major signs will occur, then those upon hire will be very few those upon help will be very few. In fact, we learned that when our will come, then what kind of people will be living on the earth?
Those are the worst of people, the worst of people will be living on the earth at that time. Now, what are the signs of the hour pertaining to Islam, the religion of Islam? Will this religion remain as it is today? Or will it change a little bit, the prophets of medicine said Hadees and Muslims. In the end of times, there will be people who will read the Quran, but it will not go past their throats. And they will leave Islam as swiftly as the arrows go through the game. You know an animal that is hunted and an hour shot sometimes it goes through it
through it literally like you see the pointer, the pointy edge at the on the other side of the animal. So so quickly.
Like for example a person is shot with a bullet. And what happens a bullet goes through literally goes through how quickly within seconds less than that. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said people will leave Islam as swiftly as the arrows go through the game.
So the signs of the hour is that few people will be upon how?
In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the end of times, they will appear some young foolish people who will use in their claim the best speech of all people mean they will quote the statements of others. So and So said this, so and so said this amazing court amazing saying they will quote a lot.
But they will abandon Islam as an arrow going through the game. their belief will not go beyond our throats, meaning their Islam will be limited to what their mouths if it's a recitation of the Quran, if it's their service to their religion, it's all we're limited to their tank. It's not a matter of the heart.
It's not a matter of Amen. It's not a matter that they take personally. No, it's just limited to their tongue. So what will happen, they will talk a lot about Islam foolishly. And they will also quote the statements of others a lot. But when it comes to actual Islam in their lives practical, missing, not there at all, and such people have no
stability in their religion, what will happen? On the smallest thing? They will leave the religion very, very quickly?
Is it something that we see today? bits of it for sure.
The signs of the hour pertaining to rebel that acts of worship the Messenger of Allah said a lot of time said soon there will be people from this nation that will exaggerate in the matter of purification and do
in the matter of purification, what will they do? exaggerate. So, for example, the matter of Voodoo is a very simple, yes, it is so simple that a person can perform will do with a little bit of water, and very, very quickly. The matter of taking a bath is it easy, very easy. The prophets of Allah said and once the karma was pronounced, he was about to establish the prayer that he remembered that he needed to take a whistle. He told the people remain where you are, he went quickly took a bath returned and the water was still dripping from his head. And he led people in prayer. Imagine people are standing and girls, he goes, takes a bath and comes back so quickly.
But these days,
if somebody were to go take a shower, then how much time do they need? At least 15 minutes?
At least 15 minutes. 10 minutes under the shower for sure.
right. exaggeration in the matter of purification.
In general, also, we see there's so much emphasis on cleanliness, that mud, which is supposed to be a source of purification for us is considered to be dirt. Like what is the word dirt? dirt is what dirty? But what is dirt? mud?
Right. So the concept of purification is distorted, completely distorted, even when it comes to the matter of will do. People do so much mobile, they exaggerate so much. When they're doing will do, they will even for example wiping their head they will go on wiping their necks
is this most known? No. When it comes to the matter of taking a bath, I remember somebody once mentioned to me they recite so the class Hello to all the soldiers they know before taking a bath in order to become pure from their head.
They recite the kalama
as if they have left Islam by menstruating.
So exaggeration in a matter of purification, if will do is being performed mean people think if somebody is exaggerating, in the manner of performing will do. They're doing so well. They're doing so well. They're spending like 1520 minutes trying to perform will do in the most perfect way. The profits or losses and did not do that. His focus was more on prayer. And Voodoo. He did it quickly. As much time was necessary he gave to it not more than that. And people will exaggerate in the matter of da.
If you think about it. At the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how many incidents? Do we learn that people got together? And they made together? For instance? Yes. But otherwise, was it a habit of the prophets of law to send them to do do our HTML mini collective law? No, it wasn't a habit. But we see that these days, if you don't make a draw at the end of the session, people think you've done something wrong.
There has to be a draw. And that draw has to be 510 minutes long exaggeration, in the matter of draw, it doesn't mean that making draw excessively is wrong. It just shows that what the state of people will be that they will forget what is more important, what is more important, and they will innovate things in their religion, and they will think that what they have innovated is very, very good. And because of that innovation, they will neglect what is more important. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said of the signs of the hour is that a man will pass by a Masjid
without praying to the car in it.
A person will go to a Masjid pass by a Masjid and he will not even pray to lock are in it. Praying to record will be something so difficult for a person or something that a person will not even think about. In another version, and a man will only give Salaam to those whom he knows. He will only agree to the people whom he knows. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said oh Buddha, they will come after me leaders who will you need to know the prayer you need to know meaning who will perform the prayer after its right time, delay the prayer from its proper time. So
he was told that you guard your prayer. If the leaders are praying on the right time, then you pray along with them if they're not you perform your prayer yourself. And then you join them in congregation because that will be natural for you.
The science of the hour pertaining to massage. The profits of autism said the hour will not come until people vibe with one another about mosques. Meaning they will outdo one another in building them.
And this is what we see happening today, unless it is built, and then another Muslim organization they think we have to build our own mustard also, we have to expand our mustard. We have to do this to our mustard competition, in what just the structure just the building. Now what is actually going on inside the masjid, that's of secondary importance, but the structure itself that is of most importance. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when you will adorn your massages, and decorate your massage, then destruction will be upon you for DML What
does it mean that it is wrong to adorn the massage it and decorate the most? It's not inherently wrong, because we see that Earth man held the Allahu anhu when he expanded the masjid nabawi. What did he do? He made it beautiful. He replaced the pillars that were made of date palm trunks with actual concrete pillars that were also carved. There were also engraved with patterns. And the people criticized him and responded to and who didn't accept that criticism at all that we learned about this and Bahati because he said that he heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said whoever builds a Masjid Allah will build for him a home in general. So I want a beautiful home in Ghana.
This is why I built a beautiful Masjid.
But this Hadees it shows that it is not really that good. So how do we put the two things together? Over here in this Hadith, what is being mentioned is that the entire focus of the people will be adornment of the Messiah.
More money will be spent in building the machine
then will be spent in educating the people. More money will be spent in decorating the masjid then it will be spent in helping people learn the deen or rather more focus will be on decorating the budget. More focus will be on having a beautiful must have a shiny golden must have brand new, but do I read it?
That's something that we need to think about.
We want to must have this size and this size and this size. Right? We want to have this color and that color and a beautiful cover. But is it being recited the prophets a lot of them said for dinner while they come.
In another Hadees it has mentioned they will be in the end of time people who will sit in the masajid in circles how unhealthy
meaning they will have their gatherings in the masjid. They will sit in circles and their main concern will be this world.
Meaning they will sit and talk about what the matters of the dunya the prophets of autism said do not sit with them. And Allah has no need of such people. In another Hadees they will be in the end of times people who will speak and converse in the massage talk a lot in the massages and Allah has no need of such people. A lot of talks in the massages, but those talks are not about Allah, not about his Deen they're about other matters. The signs of the hour pertaining to knowledge. In a hadith we learn in your times there are many knowledgeable ones
who was being addressed over here the companions that today in your time there are many knowledgeable ones and few orators.
What does that mean?
That more people,
more people, majority of the people, they have knowledge. And there are only a few people who speak speakers or writers they're very few.
And was that the case? Yes. How many people from the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were hoping you
would say, please give us a chance to give hope. But also, we would like to be lecturers also know. They didn't do that. What did they do? They learned they learned and they applied, more knowledgeable and few aerators. Whoever leaves even a 10th of what he knows he is destroyed.
In the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if a person left even a 10th of what he knew, meaning he neglected acting upon it. He didn't act upon even a 10th of the knowledge that he possessed. That person knew that he will be destroyed. Why because the standard was so high. The standard was so high. The prophets have a lot of time said and they will come after you a time when there will be many aerators and few knowledgeable ones. Many many speakers
and the people who actually have
Knowledge very few. Whoever holds on to even a 10th of what he knows, at that time, he will survive.
If a person does armor on even a 10th of what he knows, hopefully he will survive. You see how things will change? How knowledge will decline in another hobbies, they will be in the end of time the dreads in another version of return 30 the jokes will come after the prophets, a lot of liars coming to you with narrations that you know your father's heard. So beware of them less they misguide you and cause you tribulations.
Meaning, people will invent such things and they will talk about such matters that were unheard of before, unheard of before and they will try to prove it from where from Quran and Sunnah, interpreting them in their own ways.
completely new things. So for example, Who in the world ever said that homosexuality was permissible according to Quran and Sunnah? Is it something that could even be imagined at the time of the prophets of Allah Sena? No, who know 100 years after them No, but there are people today who will prove it to be correct. according to Quran and Sunnah.
Talking about things from their own desires, presenting it as religion. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, beware of them less than misguide you, and cause you tribulations.
Which is why, you know, many people, their goal is what reinterpreting
right reinterpreting. It doesn't need to be reinterpreted, because the interpretation was also taught in other Hadees of the signs of the hour is that knowledge will be sought from the lowly and debased from the US law.
Meaning, if you compare the knowledge with the action, there will be a huge discrepancy. If you compare the knowledge with the character, huge difference, they will not align. But people will take knowledge from who the US law, those who are lonely in their manners, in their following of the Sunnah, in their adherence to the religion, very, very lowly people, but people will take knowledge from them.
Because this will be the state of knowledge,
the science of the hour pertaining to the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said rush to perform good before six things happen, the leadership of the foolish
who will become leaders, foolish abundance of police officers. The word that is I couldn't find a better translation. In many English translations. Also, I found this word, Sherpa.
Who are they?
Now, it doesn't mean that being a police officer is wrong, or they're evil people? No, they're working for a very noble cause. It's a very good thing to do. But what does it show?
What does it show that there will be a need of security? because there'll be many crimes, many, many crimes. If you think about it 100 years ago, or rather 200 300 500 years ago? Was there any concept of police officers? 911?
No, why was it wasn't a need?
Because it was this in general. And even otherwise, if you see, if you ask your parents when they were growing up in many countries, there was no concept of, you know, police officers being everywhere. Or security guards being everywhere. And now you don't go anywhere except that you see 2030 guards, security officials, you go to an airport you meet many,
So the prophets have a lot of sense said rush to perform good before six things happen. Do good before this happens. Because if there is security guards everywhere, then what will happen?
there's danger everywhere. You won't be able to move about as freely
severing of ties, the business of verdicts, meaning hokum, judgment will be sold, bought and sold. trivialization of bloodshed, meaning life will be very cheap, people will be killed, or something very petty and life will be lost. Innocence will be killed and their lives will not be given much importance.
And the prophets of Allah said himself and young men who will sing the Quran,
they will appear people who will just sing the Quran, purify their voices with the Quran. People will appoint as their Eman those who are neither most lucky nor most knowledgeable among the rest. Who will be the leaders
Who will be the leaders? Not someone who has studied the religion? Not someone who has actually studied the Quran understood the religion? No. Are there people who are more knowledgeable than them? Yes. Are there people who understand them better than them? Yes. But they will be still appointed as leaders who the less knowledgeable, why? People will appoint them just because of their voice
just because of their voice.
And here, we need to think about it. That what is my aim behind improving my recitation? Why am I doing it? What's the focus?
Remember, we learned earlier that some people they read the Quran, why? to show off as a performance?
Right? So what's my goal? What's my Nia in other hobbies? Soon, people will come who will attach so much importance to its correctness and perfection like errors are straightened, but they will hasten its reward in this world and not defer to the asset, they will use the Quran for the purpose of dunya in another Hadees, in the times after you, there will be trials in which riches will be abundant. During these trials, the Quran would be easy. The word fat has been used and will be opened up meaning accessible everywhere. So much so that every believer, hypocrite man, woman, young grown up slave and free man will learn it. The knowledge of the Quran will be with you almost
But with this knowledge, what will people do? They will demand that they are respected. People respect me because I have studied the Quran, because I have an ijazah because I have learned the Quran, they will demand respect.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that a man might say, What is wrong with the people, they do not follow me what I read the Quran.
A person will say, what's wrong with the people, they don't follow me, they don't listen to me. They don't show respect to me. While I study the Quran, I read the Quran, they should be following me.
And he will say they're not going to follow me until I introduce something new for them. Other than the
moral of the narrative, he said to avoid that which is integrated in religion, for whichever is innovative is an error. Meaning then people will start innovating things in their religion in order to gain a following. They will say Oh, come on, you know, people don't give much importance to it anymore. So you we should be quoting statements of, you know, so and so person and that person, because the eyes of the Koran, people are not impressed by that anymore. And if you think about it, these days Also, if you ask people, what are you studying? My main goal is, I want to know Arabic. Why? Because I want to read this book and read that book can read that book. Have you read the Quran
cover to cover? Have you studied the meanings of the Quran cover to cover? No. Unfortunately, in many, many modalities in many schools, what happens? People are taught Arabic
better than Arabs? No, really. They know how to recite the Quran. They know the matters of faith, which are perhaps irrelevant to them. But have the study to hedge. Have the study through the MBA of the study through the Toba? No, they have not. They can read Arabic fluently, but their focus is not the Quran. And when their focus is not the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam. Their focus is, you know, some Sufi dancer many years ago, then what is the level of their spirituality going to be? How are they going to fear a loss of panatela? What are they going to be taking people to words? This is something that we need to think about.
Because we think everybody believes in it, everybody knows it, when you do something different, something else. But the thing is, the Quran came from Allah, and the only way you can get closer to Allah is how, through the,
the prophet of Allah, did he speak to the people, quoting them? the statements of great philosophers of the past? No, what did he do yet to lay him?
he recited upon the people the verses of Allah, you are living with Makita he taught them the book when hikmah because this is what we use a key him this is what purifies the people. So when the focus is shifted away from the Quran and Sunnah, then there will be a decline in the spirituality of people. knowledge will be rampant, but spirituality, gone. In another Hades, we learn of the signs of the our art that the wicked will be elevated and the good will be degraded. Dark will be in
Excessive meaning people will talk a lot. Talk will be excessive also means that you know a person will say something and it will spread like wildfire.
Yeah, Is this true? Of course doc will be excessive. A person will say one thing. And a huge controversy will appear like a war like a battle going on literally. wildfire, dark will be excessive, and amahl will be less. Drama will be less. Just the other day I saw this picture that said, the symbol of text messages on your phone. last check three minutes ago, Facebook last check one minute ago called on last open big question mark. And will will be less. If people are free. They want you to decode of Allah. Instead of saying Subhana Allah He will be handing it to Panama hitter Ali. Let me check Twitter.
Let me check my Facebook.
Talk will be excessive, and the AMA will be less. And the mesonet of the people will read or on whom none will object to from among the people. It was said and what is mednet the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the one who has studied everything but the book of Allah, the Exalted. Someone who doesn't know the book of Allah at all, will be standing before people, teaching them the book of Allah. He has studied everything, but the book of Allah. He will be speaking about the Quran on behalf of the Quran. But has he actually read the Quran himself? No. And the English is not the Quran. Knowing the Quran means knowing it in Arabic.
So this will be the state of knowledge how knowledge will decline, people will go far from the Quran and Sunnah. If you're feeling sleepy, feeling hot, please take your jacket off, take your sweater off, rub your eyes sit up straight. Okay.
Then we also learn the prophets of the Lord Islam said they will appear from among my community people who recite the Quran. And your recitation has no comparison with the recitation. Their recitation will be much better than yours. And your prayer has no comparison with their prayer their prayer will be more perfect than yours. And your fasts have no comparison with their fasts, they will recite the Quran thinking that it is beneficial for them, while it is harmful for them.
Because it will be an argument against the
pronunciation perfect, hello, cat, everything perfect, that we perfect. But it will not benefit them, they will think it is benefiting them. But in reality, it will be harmful for them. Because they're reciting it. But they're not applying it. They're not using it. They're not applying that knowledge and when they're not doing that. The hold on will argue against them on the Day of Judgment, it will be harmful for them. Their prayer will not pass their collarbones
it will not be accepted, it will not reach their heart, it will not have an effect on them. It will not go beyond their collarbones, they will swerve from Islam as an arrow goes through the animal shot at
they will leave Islam as quickly as an arrow goes through the game. Meaning they have no stability in religion. And what is it that a person can have stability in religion when
when he understands the Quran, when he applies it. But if the Quran is limited to just reading,
the prayer is just limited to actions,
then there's going to be no stability. In other studies we learned soon there will appear disagreement and dissension in my people, there will be people who will be good in speech and bad in action. When it comes to speech, beautiful when it comes to action really bad. They recite the Quran, but it is not pastor collarbones, they will swear from the religion as an error goes through the animal shot at they will not return to it till the error comes back to it's not to me they're never going back. There are worst of people and animals Happy is the one who kills them and they kill him.
They will call to the book of Allah, but they have nothing to do with it. They will call to the book of Allah, but they have nothing to do with it. He who fights against them will be near to Allah then the rest of the people. The people asked what is their sign? The prophets have a lot of them said they shaved the head.
So assigned was also mentioned. Now, who is it? Don't start passing judgments, Allahu Allah. But these are characteristics that we have been informed that when you see this, first of all, realize this is danger. Keep away from this yourself. Don't do it yourself. If your entire focus is just on recitation of the Quran.
perfecting its recitation, there's a problem.
If the entire focus is on knowing what people have said the statements of others, then there's a problem.
There is a problem. If the prayer is being performed in the entire focus on just the actions, there is a problem. And secondly, when you see this in people, then keep away from them. The signs of the hour pertain to a clock manners, prophets, a lot of them said the hour will not come until the people appear, who will eat with their tongues like cows eat with their tongues. Have you ever seen a cow? What does it do with it's done, or an animal, it licks or rather it wraps the grass or leaves whatever it is, and it's done. And then it takes it in.
When I read this, I was shocked, it reminded me of
ice cream cone that people are just licking away, licking away. And this is what you know, people find easy to eat.
And many times it happens at food, because of the size it is you have to open your mouth, open your mouth so wide.
You don't want to describe it. So people will appear who will eat with their tongues like cows eat with their tongues. Now, some are adamant, they said this is physically, physically and also it shows that how they will eat so much.
eat so much so excessively.
Recently, I went to America in the in the March Break, and I saw my first visit to the United States. And I was just shocked at the food servings, speechless.
speechless that when you see the size of that tumbler, you could take a shower from it.
And people go for refills, one after the other.
I don't think we ever went out to eat anywhere and we could finish the food service week we couldn't do that there was too much. I haven't seen that big of a serving anywhere in the world anyway. And people eat one and two and three people get used to it. And then they wonder why is obesity so common?
It's such a big threat. Why? Because when there's so much food, which is accessible all the time, anywhere, no healthy options.
All everywhere, then obviously what are people going to do, they're going to eat they're going to consume, and the more they will consume, the bigger their stomachs will be and the more they will want to consume. And other scholars said that this refers to not physically that their tongues will be like those of cows but rather, it refers to their speech, that they will collect wealth because of their words because of their speech. Because they're sweet doc. The prophets have a lot of sunset in the end of times they will be hos meaning people being swallowed up by the earth must transformation and caught people being bombarded with stones. I should have been the one who said O
Messenger of Allah will they be destroyed while there are righteous among them. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, when evil is dominant.
So what will be the lack of people, evil will be dominant widespread everywhere. The hour will not come until indecency and obscene actions become widespread indecency obscene actions will become widespread. And so will the severing of ties of kinship, widespread any country you go to any people you meet, they have problems with their relatives, and Ill treating neighbors and the treacherous will be trusted, while the trustworthy will not be trusted.
trustworthy will not be trusted people will not trust them, they will not rely on them, they will not hire them. The signs of the hour pertain to wealth money, the profits are a lot of some set count six things before the hour and he listed them one of which was wealth will be abundant, such that a man will be given 100 dinner and will remain unhappy and discontent.
They will have so much yet they will not be happy. The IRA will not be established your wealth increases so much. So that one will be worried for no one will accept as a cat and the person to whom he will give it will reply I am not in need of it. Certainly a time will come when people will not bother to know from where they earn the money by lawful means or unlawful means they're concerned about just the money. The hour will not come until trials are widespread and lying will become common. marketplaces will be near one another close to each other. And this happens like you wonder which monster go to so which store Should I go to this one or that one or that one?
marketplaces will be near one another time will pass quickly and how much will increase it was said what is the prevalence of autism sec killing in other Hadees the hour will not come until the people compete with one another in construction.
Hi buildings, there will be people from my alma, who will eat foods of varied colors, varied colors,
pink and orange and yellow and purple and blue and green. in one package, you will find all these colors. You know, when you go to a candy store and you see all that candy, what is that color? What's the nutrition in that perhaps there's more nutrition in the packaging. If you eat the cardboard box, then there is in those candies, people will eat foods of varied colors. And remember that the word unwind doesn't just apply to color, but also types. So different different kinds, different tastes different cuisines? And will drink drinks of varied colors.
Like when you see a big pitcher, which has a drink that that's blue in color, you wonder what is it? What is it which fruit which vegetable was derived from what juices it varied colors, and will wear clothes of varied colors. And again, colors doesn't just mean colors, but also kinds types, a lot of variety of food of drink of clothing, but there will be careless and speech. There'll be careless and speech. And they will ride on mounds of varied colors.
Any car, you pick a color, and those are the worst people of my own mind.
The prophets of the lotus and described them as the worst people of the oma. You see, you might say what's the harm in different colors of food and drink? The thing is that when you're concerned about different types of food, different types of drinks, and you're not satisfied when you have six options, you're like what drink should I take? You have your coconut like I should have had the other drink right? Can I have half of this and half of that can I mix the two?
Can I have a refill? People are not satisfied. Clothing also, one one style after the other. Constantly a person is trying to update right? So what's happening, what is more important is neglected in life. There will come a time upon the people and their hearts will become like the non Arabs. They will love this world, but their ways will be like the Bedouins
meaning when it comes to their o'clock manners. No no manners at all, harshness very evident. Whatever provision they will receive they will spend it upon animals.
People work and they spend on who their dog or their cat. They will consider Jihad to be harmful as a cat to be a penalty.
May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. It's a practical law more behind the Punisher to alert Illa illa Anta Nesta Haruka wanted to be like a Sunday morning with a lightworker
