Lesson number 155 will begin from iron and brick 92.
So we were studying about the car name, who was the car name?
adjust ruler. What else?
He was a sincere worship, or this is why he's mentioned in the Quran. But why was he given this title?
He is called zylka name because he ruled over the Persian as well as the Roman Empire. Why was he given this title?
He reached the western regions as well as the eastern regions in his conquest. So he had the western regions as well as the eastern ones under his empire in his rule, this is why he is known as zirconate. Wild as he called me,
because he wore a crown that had two horns in it.
And because he was a possessive, great, Mike, great power, great authority. And what is mentioned about him in these is
one characteristic that is mentioned over and over again,
that he made full use of all of the resources, what was the benefit of that? He used his resources completely to the maximum, what was the advantage of that
he achieved so much he accomplished so much, all the way from the east, to the west, when, when he saw my advice, Ababa,
and also another reason as to why he was able to accomplish so much. What was another reason in the meaning of some advice.
He never stopped, he kept on going, he did one thing and he followed it up by another work, he accomplished one task, one conquest, one journey, followed by another one he never stopped.
And over here, we see again, that a third expedition is mentioned that first of all, he went to the western regions, then from there, he went to the eastern regions, and then Allah Subhana, WA tada says, some of our sebulba he traveled again, he used his resources, he went on another expedition had until either Bella until when he reached,
what did he reach bainer between meaning the space the gap between a said Danny, the two mountains, the word a set, Dane is a dual of said and said is basically a barrier between two things.
However, this word is also used for mountains. Why? Because mountains also become barriers, isn't it,
they become huge barriers, they prevent sometimes sunlight, they make it difficult for a person to go from one place to the other. Which is why sometimes if you're traveling by road, it takes a lot of time to cross over mountains. Why because mountains are like barriers. So sad is a very, but in particular, the word set is used for a huge mountain. Because the bigger the mountain, the greater obstacle, the greater hurdle, the greater barrier it becomes.
And some of that that said also applies to mountain ranges.
So he reached between two mountains or two mountain ranges. So he reached the past between the two.
And as you reach the past between the two mountains, what are the he found minima basically beside them to
beside these two mountains, or beside these two mountain ranges, he found a woman or people, there was another people who lived over there.
So we see that local name came across so many different people, so many different nations, so many different civilizations. In his travels in his conquest, he reached the West he reached the east and now he's reached another place.
But these people whom he found by these two mountain ranges, Allah subhanaw taala says lay a Kaduna they were not able to they were not even near Who? These people this town. They were not even near EF Kahuna. They understand Poland a word.
Yeah, Kaduna Islam, gasweld. Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, which has to be at the verge of doing something to be about to do something.
So like a doula, they were nowhere near. They were not even close to. They could barely they could hardly have Kahuna, Pola, they could hardly understand a word. What does it show
that they spoke a completely different language.
There was a complete language barrier between the name and these people.
They could not explain themselves to the car name and the car name could not understand what they were saying.
either. So Larry Academy of Kahuna cola doesn't happen. Sometimes you come across some person, and they speak a completely different language, you don't even know how to communicate with them.
And sometimes it's possible that you use sign language, but they interpret differently. Every culture, they have different ways of communicating even through sign language. I remember somebody was one saying that they went somewhere and the people in order to say no, they would nod their heads in order to say yes, they would shake their heads, so completely opposite.
So these people like I don't have Coca Cola.
And one reason as to why these people were not able to understand anywhere, or they were not able to explain themselves at all, could be because they were completely cut off from the rest of the world.
Again, what does it show to us that he reached such places where no one else had reached,
he reached such areas such people, he met civilizations which were undiscovered before which were unknown before, completely unknown to people lay a garden of Coca Cola.
But we see the doctor name, Allah subhanaw, taala had given him many resources. He was extremely powerful. He was very mighty, he had been blessed with many blessings.
And he was also determined to overcome every hurdle, wasn't he? He went all the way to the west, he went all the way to the east. And then he didn't stop over there. So he was very determined to overcome any kind of hurdle, any kind of difficulty. So he somehow managed to communicate with these people as well. It's possible that he had some expert translators or people with very good language ability, communication ability, allow arland somehow he managed to communicate with them.
So although they said who said those people, these people will be found by these mountains? They said, Yeah, they'll call name or they'll coordinate in a judo on juja. Indeed, yet, dude, and dude. Yeah, dude, dude, they are two tribes. Yet judge is the name of one tribe and my god is the name of the other tribe.
And these two tribes, remember, they are human. They are from the descendants of Adam, are you sir?
Because some people say, Jews are perhaps not human beings, there will be some kind of virus, some kind of weird kind of creation. No, they are human beings as obvious from this ayah and also from various ahaadeeth that we find in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
But remember that, yeah, dude, they're extremely powerful. And they're numerous in their number, to the point that the ratio of your duty due to the rest of human beings is 999 to one.
Just imagine, where there are 999 people from your duty and duty, there is one other human being.
And remember that they are human beings, they're from the descendants of Adam or Acela. But they're very powerful. And they're very mousset. They create a lot of preset, invading tribes.
I personally wonder, where are they? Where are they?
As we will learn from the story, that dude, dude, they were, you can say, barred by zylka name. And he made a barrier, because of which the judge are not able to cross that barrier, which is why they're not mingled with the rest of the people.
And for us, this might seem a bit strange, because, you know, with today's discovery and advancement and travel, and technology, we may feel that we have discovered every part of the earth. So how is it possible that these people that are supposed to be 999 times more than the rest of the human beings, they are unknown to us? We don't know where they are. It's quite possible.
It's quite possible. Why? Because what herbal law he was here, this earth is huge. And there are many, many parts in this earth, that human beings have still not found, have still not discovered.
As I mentioned to you that remember, in South America recently, they discovered some tribes that were completely cut off from the rest of the site, people had no idea that they existed over there. Till today, every other day, scientists discover new and new types of species. And remember that this place where you didn't judge are, this is a mountainous area.
And some have said that this area is towards bajada. And remember that if you go towards of Weinstein and beyond, all of these areas are covered in mountains, huge mountains. And it's impossible to find people over there, isn't it? It's impossible to search. It's impossible to find because of the mountains and the climate of that area and it's so difficult to travel through.
so Alo arland where exactly these people are, but we believe in what Allah has told us, we believe in that we might not be able to fully comprehend it, we might not be able to discover it today. However, when Allah has said, What is our reaction? Simona? Well, Donna we believe we obey, we believe in whatever align is messenger has informed us.
So these people, they said to tokoname that also can name these people Yeah, dude and dude, their move Ceduna fill out their one to create a lot of facade in the net,
that every time they come from their area, they come across us, they create so much facade.
And remember, facade will have this various types, any action that leads to harm and destruction and loss.
Whether it is through murder, or it is through theft, or it is through destroying lands and crops, and buildings, any kind of facade. So these dudes are mature, they're move cydonia fill out, as I mentioned to you, they're powerful and raiding tribes.
So these people requested to contain that for hell, Niger Aloo. So shall we assign laka for you, hello, Jen, and expenditure, which is from newsletters hot regime.
And hard is literally what Roger is to leave to go.
And work harder applies to expenditure. Why? Because when you're constructing something, when you're buying something, you have to spend money, and the money goes, it leaves your account, it leaves your wallet. Sometimes you may have noticed that if you're getting some renovations done, if you're fixing a part of the house, one expense after the other one bill after the other to the money just goes so hard, just what expenditure.
And current is also used for attacks.
So shall we assign for you mean Shall we collect for you or they'll contain some expenditure, some tax Allah upon and that dollar that you make, based on our binome between us, and between them, meaning between the Judean Medusa a barrier.
So in other words, they're requesting little connait that we will pay you we will give you the money, but you somehow make some barrier between us and between these yet
so that your children might judge cannot come and create facade in our lands, because we are tired of them. We have had enough we have suffered a lot. So please make a barrier between us and them that will enable them from coming towards us and harming us. Notice the word said is used again over here earlier, it was used for mountain and over here. It's used for a barrier.
Now the reason why they offered the Mirage is because they did not want the request to be turned down. It wasn't as well contained could not afford. He wanted them to pay him. No, it's just that they did not want that their request should be turned down. They were desperate for this help, because they had had enough of yet.
And as I mentioned to you that he had, dude, they are human beings. And one more thing, that their numbers are many more than the rest of the human beings.
There's a hadith that is well known. It is reported in Bukhari and Muslim, which we learned that on the Day of Judgment, a loss of penalty will say to Adam and Islam or Adam, he will reply lebap was Saturday will hydrophobia day, that Oh Allah At your service, here I am, and all good is in your head. So Allah, Allah will say to Adam, send forth those who are destined to hell, from your children, on the Day of Judgment sent forth from your children, all those were to go to hellfire. So Adam, our listeners will ask Who are those destined for hell, meaning how many are there? And Allah subhanaw taala will reply out of every 1999 to hell, and one to paradise.
So when the Sahaba heard this, they said oh, Prophet sallallahu wasallam which of us would be that one man? How is it possible? Who amongst us would be that one man out of 1000? Who will go to Jenna. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam responded, that and among you are two nations, that among you or people, there are two nations who are never added to a thing, but they overwhelm it. Do nations are among you are human beings, who whenever they are added to something, what happens? They overwhelm it?
And who are they? yet? dujon mojej.
And another narration he said, Be glad for indeed from you is going to be the one man who is going to gender and from
The children dude is going to be the rest of them who are going to go to hellfire.
So according to that Hadees, that shows to us, the great numbers of young children, how many there are, how many more times
and also it shows to us that they are indeed human beings, they are from the descendants of the listener, as obvious from this is well,
so what was the response of the name? When the people made this request to him?
He said, mama canny, that which my lord has established me with fee in it makani, as you know, that the authority, the establishment, the power, the position, all that Allah has given me, or be my Lord has given me it is heightened, it is much better, much better than what then what you could offer me,
you could offer me just a little bit of tax, just a little bit of wage a little bit of expenditure. But what Allah has given me is much better for me. In other words, I do not need your tax, you don't need to pay anything to me. But what I do want from you is that you have to work with me
the understand, you have to work with me,
you see very good leadership qualities in me.
Many times what happens people say Just give me the money, I'll do the work myself alone, just don't come near me, I'll do the work myself. Such a person is not successful. A person who cannot make others work, who was successful, who was a successful leader, who can put others to work as well, who can make them stand on their feet, who will put them to work. Like for example, many times, mothers, they leave with their children, they wait for the children to go to sleep, and then they will go and clean the whole house, then they will go for the laundry, then they will go put the dishes away, etc, etc. And this way, what happens, children they never learn to clean up themselves
isn't they never learned that they should tidy up after themselves. Never.
Now remember, it is extremely difficult to make the children clean up themselves, isn't it, you have to tell them again, and again. Sometimes they don't do the work properly, you tell them to put the clothes away, you'll tell them to put the toys away, they won't put them property like might as well do it myself because I have to do twice anyway. But the fact is that if you don't go through that effort will they learn they will not learn it's much easier to do it yourself, but this is being very selfish,
this is not good for the children.
Similarly, this principle can be applied anywhere, whether a person is a teacher or a boss or ahead or you know, some people are working under him in any area in any kind of work. successful leader is He who makes people work
we see that the Canadian udvar Silva he used all of his resources completely fully and this is a part of resources manpower, that you make them work as well, it doesn't mean that you put them to extremely hard and laborious work, but the fact is that whatever work has to be done, they should be able to do it themselves. So, he said you have to work with me
and what is that for a nguni So, you are assessed to meet or you know from the newsletters I in well known
and honest help.
So, all of you helped me be co working with strength.
Remember that strength power is a various types. It includes physical power, the bedini power manpower, it includes financial power as well. So for our inone will coverting assist me with over meeting with your workforce I want your manpower
I want your people
agile, I will make bainer come between you were buying a home and between them meeting the judge or demand of them.
Notice they asked for said and what is the local name say I will make for you.
Now what is the rotten rotten is from the newsletters that me
and rather is a barrier. It is also used for a very thick wall. And primarily the verbal edema means to seal holes to seal holes to plug them with rocks, etc.
Like for example, if you see a wall and there are gaps there holds. One is that you leave those gaps you leave those holes as they are but the other is that you seal all of them when you seal them all what's going to happen
In the wall, the barrier is going to become firm and strong. So it is a very thick wall
that is completely consolidated. There are no empty gaps in it. There are no cracks in it, anything like that and it's very strong, it's very thick and it's well consolidated. So agile Vayner comm webinar home, I will make between you and them a fortifying barrier or fortifying wall.
So how are you supposed to help me?
Tony, bring to me zubarah sheets of what? Al Hadid iron, bring me sheets of iron.
The word Zuma is the plural of the word zebra. And zebra is a huge block or a piece of iron.
A huge block or a piece of iron. So bring me zebra Hadid sheets of iron, huge pieces of iron.
Notice he doesn't say bricks that are made of clay or that are made of some other material. But what does he say? sheets of iron?
Because iron is much stronger than what?
None other materials.
So Anthony's overall had he had that until either when Salwa he leveled sour from the reference scene, well, yeah, until when he leveled, he made equal bainer solder Fany between the two mountain walls. So the vein is a doula slide of and sort of is the band or the side of something? It also applies to an oyster shell. Why? Because it bends. It's not straight, isn't it? It's not a block. But the side is bent. It's curved. So sort of is also used for the side of a mountain,
the sidewall of a mountain for cliff.
So either Sarah Venus or the feigning he leveled between the two sides of the mountains. Remember, these are two mountain ranges, or two mountains. Okay. This is where he reached. So imagine the empty space, the gap, the passage between the mountains, what does he do? He fills them up with sheets of iron, with huge blocks of iron. You can imagine how massive the structure would be that he filled that entire gap until the height of this structure that he was making of sheets of iron, it leveled with the peaks of the mountains.
Can you imagine
it's like making another mountain almost.
So you have two mountains, the gap between them we filled them up with iron sheets.
Then when the entire space was filled up, either he said and for who blow
through from the roof is known for her Nether hub, which is to blow so blow, meaning burn the iron sheets, or light fire, Hatter until either gyla Hunan, until when he made it into fire.
When he made the sheets of iron the blocks of iron into fire. What does it mean by that? That they just looked like fire.
He burnt them so that in their color, they turn red in their heat, they were like fire. So in other words, they had completely melted, what was the point of melting them? What was the point of burning them
so that they would melt together and they would get joined together? Because this was blocks of iron sheets of iron. When he burned them all. It became into one mess, one solid structure, all of the pieces were connected with one another. You couldn't just remove one and go through
it he said now when the iron sheets they were completely burned, they were like fire Allah He said Tony, you gave me a thrill I will pour a frame from the roof mattress fell online photo if rather stupid pour out.
So, I will pour out I lay upon it meaning upon this wall of iron that has been burned. I will pour on it better than molten copper better is used for molten brass or molten copper or some kind of molten metal. So you can imagine sheets of iron that have been burnt that are consolidated and now on top of that he pours molten copper. So what kind of a structure is it once it will cool down
a very solid and firm structure. Can you dig through it? No. Can you try to jump over it?
No, can you try to climb it? No, it's huge. It's massive. And it's extremely strong.
Normally we think of it walls are made of bricks and cement. Maybe what? different materials and it's always possible to dig all through them, or somehow shape that wall or destroy that wall or break it or do something to it in order to cross it.
However, this wall is extremely strong, that it's made of iron and on top molten copper has been born.
