wa Salatu was Salam ala Abdullah who are solely Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge marrying another.
So our talk today, this is now for everyone we did the MCU. class for the teenagers, we did the MCU class for the younger kids. This now is for everyone. So there is no reason for anyone to be sitting in the back of the hall. Guys can Molly Arakanese? Why am I saying you all sat separately?
Come a bit forward.
Better for you. I know everybody wants to sit against the wall. I don't know why. But no problem lab x, we will not complain.
Come a little closer we inshallah we have more of a class.
Our discussion for this, which is our penultimate talk today. It's our second last talk is the topic of living in the End Times.
How is it like to live in what we would call our heroes in
that time when the world is about to end?
And in this I really want to talk about living through I don't want to talk about what happens because I've done talks like that the signs of the hour and all that stuff. We've talked about it. But I want to talk about how you live, how do you behave? How do you worship Allah, some of the scholars, they call it fism. And if eaten in the times of trials and tribulations. Before we talk about that, we do have to do a little bit of an introduction to our heroism at the end of time.
So the signs of the hour, are divided into two.
I should also say l cupola and Ashra to Sir sohara, the major signs and the minus signs.
How do we differentiate between the two. So the minus signs happen over a long period of time.
Already the minus signs have been happening for 1440 years
Because the first of the minus signs was the coming up the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So that's now more than 1450 years, since the first minus sign came. So the time of the minus signs is very long.
As for the major signs, the time that they happen, they happen in a very short space of time.
As for the minus signs, the minus signs are normally things which are
to a certain extent, normal and usual.
But they are signs, for example, at Tatau, autofill, Boolean fill Boolean, people competing with building high buildings. This in itself is not necessarily any miraculous in nature. And if somebody built a building that had three floors, and someone built one that had four floors, then someone built one that had 50 floors, then someone built one that had 160, something floors, any they are competing with each other in building tall buildings. This in itself is not something that is miraculous, or supernatural in nature.
As for the major science, they are typically supernatural in nature. And they are very, very unusual and extremely,
extremely rare. So for example, that the journal, the coming of the digital, and what the digital will do is not something normal, right? It's not within the normal things that you see, for example, from the signs of the hour is for poker, validate being bad to your parents, being bad to your parents, as bad as it is, but it's something which is not outside of the realm of normality. As for the major signs, they are typically outside of the realm of normality.
The sun rises from the west instead of the East, a beast comes out of the earth and speaks to people and brands them.
So this is something very, very, very different.
The major signs all happen one after the other in close proximity.
When the digital comes immediately after the digital comes ASA and Isa comes at the end of the of the time of the digital. And then immediately when the digital has been killed. Who comes Yeah, George and George. And then after that come the following signs one after the other, and the sun that rises from the west and the beast that comes
out of the earth and the smoke, and the three cousins that are open in the earth. And finally, the last of the signs is a fire that will start in added in Yemen. And it will drive the people to their place of resurrection in a sham in Syria.
These signs are not normal, but the minus signs are things that we see around us, but they are in themselves a sign. Also, the minus signs have no specific ruling. Just because it's a sign doesn't mean that it's haram necessarily. For example, it's not haram to live in a tall building or to build a tall building. It's a sign. So when you see it, you realize the closeness of the hour. Now, that being said, As a brief introduction, if we look at the minus signs,
Wallah, he almost
you cannot find almost a single one of them.
That has not yet happened.
Unless it is a sign that the scholars said it will happen during the time of the major sites. What I mean by that is, the minus signs have three situations. Some of the minus signs happened and finished. For example, the sending of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, he was sent, then the Prophet SAW Selim died, those things have happened. They're not going to happen in the future, they've happened already. The second category is a sign that has happened but is getting worse. For example, Catarratto cotton, a lot of killing people killing each other, such that the person who kills the other person doesn't know why they killed them. And the person who was killed doesn't know
why they were killed.
This also worked it happened
why is that and it's getting worse.
And it will continue to get worse and worse and worse until the coming of the digit
or until the end of the world. So there are some of these minus signs they happen but they're getting worse every day. Oh cocoa reality being bad to your parents. People were bad to their parents before but it's getting more and more and more until the Prophet sighs and like he said, and tele del amor to rob better her that the slave girl will give birth to her mistress
and I believe that a stronger opinion about this hadith is it refers to being bad to your parents that a woman will a girl will treat her parents so badly she will treat them like a mistress will treat a slave
we see this among our among Danny our society. We do. Kids say to their parents bring me this. Do this for me. Why is it me? Do I tell me I can't do this. And then they talk to their parents like you would talk to a slave
any worse even than a servant any even than you would talk to a servant. So they see their parents are servants to them. Not that they are servants to their parents. It's getting worse.
the at the time becoming compressed. So you feel like a year goes by and you didn't even do anything and like a day goes by when is the time this will get the worst? Can anyone tell me we know there's a time when the winter Carrozza man will become the worst of the worst
that the journal because what will happen
one day, any day like a year like the time is just all goes like it's wrong one day is like a year one day is like a month and like the time is all different and he all the time the way that you understand time is different. But now do we not see that time passes by and nothing gets done? Days passed by I used to say well law he they people used to write between, you know Arthur and Margaret. They used to write books. Now, three, four years goes by a person can't finish the one article that we're writing. But is it getting worse? Yes, it's getting worse to Audible as work is one of the signs of the hour, that the markets will become near. And there are many ways to understand that.
One is that all the markets come together into one place like the big malls and the big in all the markets in one place. But more even more than that is the nearness of international trade.
For example, I can order something from China that arrives within one week.
I can order something from the state and arrive next day or two days later.
And he's so far away. It's like the US walk back
came nearer to me, even though they are far away, like all the markets became near to me, I could order something when I'm sitting in Newcastle, I can order something from London, it will arrive sometimes. And if it doesn't arrive the same day, then it arrived the next day. So it became like a swap became closer. But what do you see? It started with, you know, two day delivery, then next day delivery, then same day delivery, then Yanni delivery within Canada number of hours or something like that. So it's getting also any it's getting also more like that to any Takara will work. So it's something that happened, but it's getting more and more and more.
From the science that we're going to talk about in a moment is the horrible fit had the trials and tribulations like
have trials and tribulations happen to the Muslims before now they have does anyone know what you would call the first trial? The first real fitna that happened to the Muslims
the first real fitna that happened to the Muslims
Okay, the death of the Prophet sighs and for sure is the first calamity that happened to the Muslims no doubt, the great calamity that happened and we'll see what we'll cover up. No doubt is the death of the Prophet. So I said, Because revelation stopped, and the ability to go back and get your religion confirmed for you stopped. So there is no doubt. But in terms of a fitna where the Muslims split and started to fight each other and argue with each other and not see eye to eye. And problems started to happen among Muslims. When was this up?
Before the Battle of the Camel
the killing of Earth man,
the killing of Earth man is really the first major fitna that the Muslims go through. Yes, Amara was killed. And yes, Omar was murdered, but Omar was killed by a non Muslim right? Somebody who never claimed Islam for themselves.
And he was my juicy, he was a major in and he never claimed Islam for himself. So Irma was killed by a non Muslim so it didn't shake the OMA but Earth man was killed by a group of people who claim to be Muslim and he they came and they the rubble, Yanni they came and they were being driven by them on airfield clean. And they in the end, they overcame Earth man in his house, and it said the one who killed him wasn't gonna fly. It said, I mean, there's some evidence that the one who killed off man was gonna affect but the fact that it was someone who claimed Islam and the people involved some of them were Muslim.
They were like Rubble, any like ignorant people. But the point is that now the Muslims don't agree what to do next.
Ali Radi Allahu Allah is forced to become the Khalifa by force. And he they told him if you don't accept this role, we will kill everybody in Medina.
So he's forced to accept it. But now that he's accepted it and he's become istikhara. And he's become solid in his place. He's the Khalifa.
So now there's a problem. What do we do with the killers of Earth man, because in Islam, by default, they should be killed. But there's two problems. The first one is that the Muslim army has not come back. So the Muslims don't really have the ability to kill or to arrest the people who killed Earthman not easily without a big fight and without a lot of bloodshed. So that's one problem. The other problem is they don't know who it is. They don't know who killed him. They know a rubble a group of people who all run over his house, but they don't know exactly who is responsible for what. So Ali makes he had he makes a decision for himself. And the decision that he makes for himself is
that at this moment in time, right now, we are not going to take any action. Not because we shouldn't he agrees we have to take action. But we're going to wait for the Muslim army to return
and we're going to wait for things to settle and then we're going to take action.
The relatives of Earth man, they wanted immediate action
among them. Wow. We are of Yola, who and others who were from the close relatives of Earth man.
And among them was some of them who from the National machineable Jenna Zubayr
and others who wanted to see immediate action. So now the Sahaba don't agree on the next step. And now we started to get into fitting the monad if you can see it
They try to stir trouble between people and they try to make people fight. And in the end the Muslims fight each other. What is our position on the Muslims fighting each other among the sahaba?
As the poet he said,
For cathedra, who mean home worker to whom the home work he left home I feel harsh remark Romani, he said the one who was killed among them was a Sahabi. And the one who killed among them was a Sahabi. And both of them Allah will have mercy on them Yom Okayama.
As Allah said, We're Kula word Allah who has now all of them Allah promise, Jen. And that means that they tried their best. And he they were in a difficult situation where they couldn't see and both had evidences, and from that is that the scholars are fifth among the sahaba. Were in half. Half of them said, Yeah, that's right. And another half of them said, No, the other way is right. So now it's a fitna, this is the beginning of the fit. Do you think these fit and got worse or better, got worse, as time went on, until now, the fit and among the Muslims and the killing and any the situation of the Muslims is worse than it was?
At any other time.
And there are many, many, many other
signs the loss of Amana responsibility, many other things that can be considered among the minor signs. So now, as we have established, and I have a video, I have videos on the signs already. So I don't want to go into too much detail. But I wanted to establish that we are now living in a time when most of or many of the minus signs have already happened.
Some of them are getting worse. Are there some minor signs that have not happened at all? Yes. But among the scholars are those who say that these signs will not necessarily happen before the major ones, there is no rule that says minus sign stop and major sign start No way. Rather, some of the minus signs will happen during the time of the major ones. So is there any minus sign left, which we can guarantee will happen before the major signs, all that is left, or the minus signs that happen immediately before the job like fighting against the Europeans
or the bison times, like the second conquest of Constantinople, like
the famine that will happen for three years before the jail comes, that is the only ones that you can save, definitely this didn't happen.
Otherwise, every other thing that you have, you are leaving right at the end of time.
I don't know how long it is, before that the gel will come.
No one has that knowledge that is with Allah subhanaw taala. But if you compare the signs the prophets I some spoke about you cannot believe except that you are right at the very very end of time.
And that means now if you don't see that the gel with your own eyes, perhaps your children will see him with this or your grandchildren. But you cannot believe that there are many left many generations left. Based upon that hadith you can't see virtually anything that would say to you, for example, if the famine the famine happens three years before the dead child right in the first year, a third of the of the of the Earth's produce is cut in the second year, two thirds and in the third year, all of the Earth doesn't produce anything. Is there any single reason why that could not happen next year.
I don't know.
or the year after, or in five years time or in six years time for you are leaving at the end of time.
You are leaving not at the end of time itself. But in the end times in the Times which come towards the end of the dunya you're not in the middle of it. The prophets lie some said both to Anna was Sokka attain me and the hour was sent like these two fingers and is the difference between the length of your index finger and your middle finger.
It's very, very close. Now the Earth has been around for a long time. So that's your index finger. The Earth has been around for a long time. But now there is not much after the Prophet slicin We don't know exactly how many years the Earth has been around for so we can't say okay the earth was around for you know
20,000 So there is 2000 So there is two per se but this is to show you the very the closeness of the hour.
So living in this time how do we survive living in
The Prophet SAW Selim said in a hadith sahih, Muslim from the hadith of Abu Hurayrah Torah, the Allahu and an interview, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Hohokam bed al Islam who kyriba was say you are all due Hurry up and come by that fall to ballyhoura.
He said Islam began as something strange, and Islam is going to go back to being something strange. So poobah and toolbar is either paradise or it's a tree in paradise.
Toolbar will be for the people who are strangers.
There is an explanation from the Prophet SAW Selim about this. But first of all, how did Islam start is something strange? Remember when the Prophet sighs I'm first came to tell people about Islam?
Was it the case that hundreds of people just entered into Islam in crowds? No, it wasn't. When did people enter Islam in crowds after the conquest of Makkah?
Then the people entered into Islam as larger in big numbers before that one person, another person, and the people found it strange. They said I journal li Hatter Illa Hanwha Haider in the heart and actually your job has he made all of the gods into one God, this is something very strange.
Mercer may not be heard that fee ABA in a welline We never heard any of our fathers doing things like this worshiping one God.
So Islam was strange, even to the people accepted Islam among the community. It was strange.
It was different. It was something that the people were not used to.
And Islam will return to be like that. I don't say that we reached the worst of this. Because it's something that's getting worse over time. But Islamic Islam is becoming stranger and stranger to people. When you tell people about worshipping Allah alone, they look at you like
this is a Jeep.
We never heard our Fathers say this when you tell people they can't make dua to the people in the graves.
They would say to you must be heard about in our in all of our fathers used to go to the graves and pray to the dead. We don't know anyone
who didn't do this. Islam became strange when you see people pray five times they wonder brothers was telling me that someone said to him, you're the only Muslim I know that prays five times a day. Now I'm gonna say he knows every Muslim and I'm, of course there are many Muslims around the world that pray five times a day. But now it became rarer and more and more rare. I implement the pseudonym for example, the Sunnah in the way you dress straightaway, people look at you like what are you doing? What are you wet? What are you wearing? Why, why are your clothes above your ankles for
the profits? I used to do that zijin curry, we never saw this in our life. The sooner became strange to people. And I'm not saying that it reached the peak, but it's getting more and more strange.
For to ballyhoura that paradise is for who? The people who lived in the very early time of Islam, when Islam was strange and the people who will come at the end of time and practice Islam when Islam is something strange.
It was said or messenger of Allah many hoorah that or messenger of Allah. This isn't the Hadees of
sabot radula one
in a narration, ya rasool Allah, many Laura, that all messenger of Allah who are the strangers, he said Alladhina useless Hona either fussiness, those who make things right when the people have become lost or corrupt.
Those people who bring people back to the Quran and the Sunnah
in the time when people lost it,
and in another narration Usili Hoonah F said and nurse Amin Suniti. They correct what the people corrupted from my sunnah.
They take what the people lost from the Sunnah, what the people have forgotten from the Sunnah, what the people have done a bit because alpha to the Sunnah is better, right? I corrupting the Sunnah means bringing innovations, they correct these innovations. They make the Sunnah dominant again they bring the Sunnah out to the people again.
And he said home owners on sorry one car liloan fee owners in so
Fionna acid he said, home owners on solid holder Colleen fee or nursing. So in Kathy, oh come upon, he said they are a few righteous people, among many evil people.
And I can't say to you that we reached that time exactly. But there is no doubt Wallahi there is no doubt that we are living in a time where very few Muslims, comparative to the whole Muslims in the world, very few are committed to practicing Islam. And out of those who practice their religion, very few practices upon the Sunnah, I believe statistically that's true. If you look at all the Muslims in the world, and you take the basic principles of Islam, let's just talk about for example, the shy the five times daily prayer,
for example, the hijab, or fasting in Ramadan, you know, like the big things that Islam is known for. Many, many Muslims around the world today are not practicing. Islam is a minority in the world today, right? Islam is not the majority of people in the world today, Islam as the minority, from the people who are Muslim, the people who are practicing, I'm not talking about different groups or sects. I'm just talking about people who pray five times a day, though women wear proper hijab, you know, the people fast Ramadan, and all that did the most basic things.
I don't know if you can say a minority, I'm not sure. But it's not everybody. And it's like there was a time remember, if you came into the middle of the, you know, even the Ambassade caliphate, you could not find from the east of the place to the west, somebody that doesn't pray five times a day.
Now look at your job or either Masjid is out onto the street. And yet when you come at first you have the harasser
once of twos of three, so forth.
Then among those people who pray five times a day, how many of them are staunch in sticking to the Sunnah of the Prophet sighs and how many of them fell into bed horrified innovations and bad practices. I believe that people practicing a sunnah are a minority inside of a minority inside of a minority. Then aka Lea inside of an Kalia inside of Attica. Lee, the Muslims are already a minority within them, the people who are practicing properly during the main points of Islam are also relatively small. And within them the people who are practicing the Sunnah are also a minority.
When you go to a city, how often you go to a city and you find any, the main three for massage in in the city are all practicing according to some. It's not that common.
So it's not about any percentages, I don't know to say 50% 40% 60%. But no doubt it's getting more and more strange and more and more limited in the people who are practicing Islam according to the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and what the Companions understood.
Then among them, there's an even stranger group. And they are the people who are not just practicing, but trying to correct what the people have done wrong. And trying to bring people back to the Sunnah. And they are the ones who the profit size and called Alibaba.
The people who are living in a useless Shona in the facade in NUS the people who make things right, when the people have corrupted them.
The people who make things right when the people have corrupted them.
So this is the first point that I wanted to make about living at the end of time.
Be from the Quran, be from the strangers. Don't worry that people find it strange that you come to the masjid for fragile, and people find it strange that you don't work in this haram job. And people find it strange that you don't mix freely between men and women. And people find it strange that the sister wants to wear niqab and people find it strange. Don't worry about how many people find what you do to be strange.
In this time we live in if people look at you as strange, this is a sign that you're upon the truth.
Not always because you have to bring that in terms of the Quran and Sunnah. But generally speaking, if you're practicing Islam, and people find you practicing Islam to be strange, that whole ballyhoura Paradise is for the people who are strange.
That's the first thing also is strive to be from the people who bring the Sunnah back to life.
Many times you'll find soon and people will look at you like you are a different religion.
For example praying to rock out before Muhammad
the Prophet sighs him said Sir Luca Bella Margaret Solu habla Maghreb Solu covenant Margaret pray before Margaret pray before Margaret and pray before Margaret Lehmann RR o ChemiCon. Whoever wants to do it.
Rarely you will see people pray to rock out before McGraw any between the Adhan and the accom
how many people you see after they prayed Korea, Malaysia when they come to the masjid, they lie in the sauce and they close their eyes between the asana federate the karma.
There are so many things from the Sunnah people forgot. Bring the Sunnah back to life. Learn the Sunnah. Practice it and teach it to people and bring it back to life.
Alladhina Usili Hona mapset and NAS woman so Nettie the people who make right what the people corrupted for my son? What does it require to make right what the people corrected from the for the people corrupted from the Sunnah. It requires knowledge. It requires in reality four things. It requires first of all knowledge that you know the Sunnah of the Prophet so I said them so you know what to tell people to do or not to do? The second is that you yourself, practice that sooner in your life.
The third thing is you tell people about it. You see someone not practicing the Sunnah in something. Say okay, did you know the Prophet sighs I'm used to do this. So we can do it as well. Practice the Sunnah.
Tell people about it and be patient because you are hurry.
You are very, very rare among the people if you do this, so people will see you to be a bit strange that you're telling people to practice the Sunnah. And you're bringing these Sunon back to life. Here, a sunnah and you're telling the people to follow it, people will see you to be strange. They'll say actually, you're not the majority.
You're not the majority. But deadly slavery but we'll say or old or even camera bed I'll talk about in Florida. Learn your religion, practice it. Teach people the Sunnah, and be patient. Because when you do this, you will be strange to people, so help people to understand it in a good way. That's another point is sometimes people they speak or they behave in a way that is strange so that people don't understand them had this unnecessary microphone. explain to people the way they can understand they help people to really understand what the Sunnah is. This is a sunnah. Did you know The Prophets I used to do this, really? I didn't know.
help people to understand it.
And it also means you must be careful not to speak without knowledge. Because if you speak without knowledge, there is no doubt that speaking without knowledge is something which makes the situation at the end of times worse. There is a Hadith
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us in Allah Hala Yakubu Allah azza wa jal does not snatch away knowledge.
Allah azza wa jal does not snatch away knowledge Intisar
into zero humaneness Allah doesn't snatch away knowledge.
And just like that any you wake up one day and there is no more knowledge
what I can Yakubu able to any maybe a cup will roll but Allah causes the scholars to die had either a lamb up Alima until if Allah azza wa jal doesn't leave a scholar left it to her the nurse will all send yo holla and in a narration ro azza wa jal Hala, Otto Assa Zhu Hala for Su Ido for F Toby rady admin for Ebola, Ebola.
The people took ignorant people as their leaders. So instead of getting their religious leadership from the Rola they took their religious leadership from some person on YouTube.
How many times have we seen this?
Until today Wallahi. If you want to sign up living in the End of Times Wallahi this
any seeking any tolerable
any server if taking knowledge from people who don't deserve to give it out,
taking knowledge from people who don't deserve to give it out. Now, we're not talking about the students of knowledge because here like they said, man, rahua and Caribbean for who are cabbie whoever narrates from someone senior is senior.
But the point here is that people are
taking knowledge from people on YouTube this person never doesn't have even practice Islam
like some of these
I don't know what you call them many personalities on YouTube who are given our Islamic knowledge. Some of them will lie they are thought they will stay calm or they don't even practice the most basic thing of Islam you look at the person you think this is like some I don't know what this thing is on the on this YouTube channel. They don't even practice Islam not even in the small things that you see. And this person gives in fact our two people.
We have situations of people will lie
someone calls themself a Mufti or shake they on YouTube given that hour they have no is their karma. They don't even practice the religion at all, let alone any no other religion to teach it to other people.
You have women, any sisters given Fatah it doesn't wear hijab. She's given fatawa to people. Your religion is like this Halal haram
healthy look in the mirror first. Then teach the people about Islam Wallahi this is the situation we are in. We're all send your Hala ignorant fools
and the people ask them about Islamic knowledge. You have celebrity people come in culture people who like the person doesn't know how to recite Surah Fatiha and the people ask them she What do you think about this the halal or haram? Haram
the person doesn't know how to recite Surah Fatiha. How can you ask them knowledge of Islam for after theory and then they give the knowledge without knowing how to give it any they don't know that knowledge they give the answer for Baloo Baloo they misguide themselves and misguide others. So it's very important when you revise the Sunnah you revive it based upon knowledge.
Now we talked about knowledge but action is also very important acting upon it at the Hurayrah narrated from the Prophet so I sell them the he said bird Euro bill amalfitana
He said Rush to do good deeds before the trials will come. Calculate creeper Elaine in Muslim like pieces of the Dark Knight
use behold Raju roofie Mina William C. kathira. William C. Mina what used to be Hoka Farah Joby rodina, who the out of the minute dunya.
He said Rush to do good deeds before. trials come like pieces of the dark night.
The trials that will come one after the other. From the signs of the hour is the horrible Phaeton that trials will come one after the other after the other.
They will come Calcutta I laid in Muslim light pieces of the dark neck just after one after the other after the other. A person feels like they're in darkness. Then there is if they can see a light the darkness comes again then as if they can see the darkness come one after the other problems, trials and tribulations. A person wakes up as a believer and goes to sleep as a disbeliever or goes to sleep as a believer and wakes up as a disbeliever they sell their religion for some small piece of this world.
The point I wanted here is bad. You're all Bill atma what should you do when you're coming to this time? Is it not a time of fit and we're in a time of fitting? We said the fitter and getting worse day by day by day.
Alhamdulillah you guys are living in a relatively safe place. A place you can come to Masjid or five times a day. You can pray you can practice your religion. Tomorrow this place may not be safe like it was yesterday. Bird you will be mad
rush to do your deeds now. Because I'm telling you if you look at the countries where civil war broke broke out, you don't see that people come into the masjid five times a day anymore.
And if you think you're gonna get shot by a sniper, when you put your head out of the door like it happened cut even not far away not long ago. I've been to countries and seeing with my own eyes, the bullet marks in the wall where if somebody came out of the house, the sniper shot them from on top of a building. They couldn't leave their house. Or if they went to the shop, sometimes the snipers and they would even and we saw with our own eyes, the marks and the consequences. They would say the sniper would try to get two or three with one bullet. And if he could get a pregnant woman and kill her and her child with the same bullet he would do it.
If you're in that situation, you
cannot now go for your classes and do your due rules and go to your health class and memorize Quran and come nicely to the masjid five times a day fit in how much
people are killing each other.
People are killing each other, and how much
in this situation, you must now take advantage of the chance you have today. Because tomorrow this place may not be safe anymore. Next week, it may not be safe anymore. How many places we see from the non Muslims the country is safe the next day.
Problems fighting riots. It doesn't have to be a war. It could even be rioting among people, right. As we've even seen in this country in certain times in the past, suddenly the city is inflamed and riots and people trying to beat each other up and people are scared for themselves. If you don't take advantage of the blessings you have today, you don't know where you will be tomorrow. You don't know where your health will be.

From that hadith that I wanted to talk to you about
is the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's along the same lines as rebels that will feel how much Tahira tiene la the Hadith narrated by Muslim
in a wording of Imam Ahmed al Amaroo Phil Hodge Kehillat in LA
and in another wording of top aligning rebar that will fill Pfitzner Kehillat in Ely worshiping Allah at a time where people are killing each other
is like making Hijrah to me.
Or doing good deeds at a time where people are killing each other is like Hijra to me.
At an another wording worshipping Allah at a time of fitna at a time of trials and tribulations is like making Hijra to me.
The people are
fighting each other. People are killing each other. People are in a state of fitna a trials and tribulations are happening problems are happening calamities are happening in that time even even let's talk about like
calamities in terms of like floods and famines and hollows. You saw what happened in the floods. And after that flood, your Masjid is ruined. Your house is ruined who is now going to their Quran halacha and sit in there to learn. You don't know what might happen. And when it happens, you have to rush to worship Allah. So even in a time of fit and you should try to worship Allah Subhana Allah even when things are hard, still you worship Allah still you make time for your prayer still you make time to read your Quran, no matter what happens in your life.
I don't know what you people will see in your life. But I fear that you will see many of the signs that Allah subhanaw taala tells us about. So if you see them don't stop worshipping Allah, wa Buddha Rebecca had to kill yaki worship Allah until that which is certain comes to you
from the Hadith that I wanted to talk to you about
is the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and the hadith is the first Hadith and Imam Muslim brings in Kitab will fit in
the trial the the book of the trials and tribulations, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said La ilaha IL Allah, way to live out of him in sharing todich Therap he said La Ilaha illa Allah water the Arabs. There is an evil that is very close. footie Halle Yom I mean rod me, Georgia Womack, Georgia me through Harvey.

Cool to ya rasool Allah.
The narrator says, narrator is
Xena, vintage ash
are the Allahu anha she said O Messenger of Allah and Liko Athena Salah hood, will we be destroyed while there are righteous people among us? Carl and either Catherine ahavath He said Yes, if evil becomes widespread.
So if evil becomes widespread among us, we could even be destroyed even though we are
we are trying to be righteous.
However, a person might ask
what about the person and there is a Hadith
and the Hadith
it talks about a hadith of selama.
With regard to the destruction of a people who are destroyed when they go along with an army, any there's an army that goes to destroy, or there's an army that goes to try to destroy
or to try to attack Makkah.
And when they go with this army that goes to try to
the cabin or to try to attack a person within the cabin. Allah will cause the earth to open up and swallow this army.
She said, Ya rasool Allah, fake a Furby men can carry her. What about the people who are dragged along with the army when they didn't mean to go? Any for example, the people didn't want to go with the army, but they were forced, like enslaved. They were chained like prisoners, and the earth swallows them up. What about the people who come for trade? There are people who come to to buy and sell.
Are they all going to be? Are they all going to be swallowed up?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said
you he said yourself will be him. All of them will be swallowed up.
What I Kingda who you buy through yo Mel Qiyamah Allah and the Yeti, but each one of them will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment according to their intentions.
The prophets Allah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, held around Ara Do you see what I can see?
From the hadith of Osama
or the Allah who I'm the Messenger of Allah sai Salam said hell Tyrone, do you see what I see in the law? My work I will fit any Phila boo you tickle camera okay ricotta or camera well clearly.
He said, I see the trials happening among your houses like the drops of rain. Everywhere the rain falls, there is going to be a trial that is going to fall between you like that
a person needs to understand living in this time.
And, as we said, taking advantage of the time before it comes. When the time comes continuing to worship Allah azza wa jal
even during the difficult times
Allah Azza Raha if you should come to Nora Allah in times of
difficulty, and Allah azza wa jal will come to know you at times of ease
in the Hadith towel rough Illa Allah He felt Raha if she'd come to know Allah at times of difficulty and Allah will come to know you at times of ease.
And we mentioned the value of reviving the Sunnah, and reviving Islam and the time when the people have strayed from it. But I wanted to take something from all of this now I'm either capital Rehoboth and maybe this is one of the last points I will make before we stop. I wanted to take that one of the ways that we can improve our situation is by reducing the evil that we see in our society.
Like Allah azza wa jal said quantum higher omitting or project liveness tap More on Bill Maher Roe v Wade, 10, honer. And in moon Katie were taught me Nona. Billa. You're the best people that have ever been brought out for the people.
You command what is good, and you forbid what is evil and you believe in Allah. So telling people to do what is good and stopping people from doing what is evil,
correcting yourself, correcting your family, correcting the people around you.
So that it is not a situation where the evil increases to an extent where it becomes predominant. And then in that time, everybody can be destroyed. So if everyone is going to be destroyed, what must you be, you must have two things about you. You yourself must not have fallen into that sin that caused the people to be destroyed.
And you must be making your efforts to correct as many people as you can command them what is good and forbidding what is evil and if you do that in sha Allah, even if you are destroyed with them, you will not be raised with them. Yamakawa one of the fit and I just wanted to highlight I highlighted it yesterday, but I wanted to make an a special a special point on it is the trial of following the way of the people who came before you.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
let's have Tabby Ana, Santa Ana min Khanna Kubla Khan,
you are certainly going to follow
the ways of the people before you.
You will certainly follow the ways of the people before you.
Let it be your own net Sena men can accomplish.

Until if one of them entered Hatillo Darko Hi Tyler with the Hello,
Joe Hello, Bob been
letter how to move or in some situations
to a bit more home you would follow them.
They said O Messenger of Allah do you mean the Jews and the Christians call us and
sheep run sheep run the euro and be there our hand by hand and arm by arm. And this is one of the things that we have to stop happening to us if we want to be safe from the feet and at the end of times, because in reality, who are those who follow that that jump
in reality? Primarily they are Alia who do and Massara. Why because as for the Jews, they rejected Risa and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they're waiting for their Messiah to come.
And as for the Christians, they rejected Mohamed Salah Salem and they're waiting for the coming the return of Isa. But when the Joe comes, what is he going to tell people? I am that Messiah and he's going to tell people that he is that Messiah, that He is that person who came he is that prophet that Jews are waiting for and he is that prophet that the Christians are waiting for.
And then he will tell them that he is your lord but you will not see your Lord until you die. So in reality those people who already are following the Jews and the Christians, when this fitna comes will only increase in following them until they follow and mercy hit the judge and the Prophet sighs Ellen
said woman to shed the heavy coalmine for who I mean home. Whoever resembles a people is one of them. So we must have our distinct Muslim identity. I did a talk on that yesterday. I briefly took it offline. Just I want to make some small edits just to make sure that my points were as I wanted to say it, but I will put it back up in sha Allah Allah in the next couple of days.
This talk on Muslim identity is very important. Because in this time of Phaeton, if we don't stick to our Islamic identity, and we allow ourselves to become assimilated with the Jews and the Christians at the end of the day every fitna that they fall into we will only go behind them and fall into it with them. Why? Because the prophets Isom said shipper on shipper on the law and be the law hand by hand and on by arm you will follow these people. What does he mean about her job?
like the lizards hole? The lizards hole is a place that doesn't have a way out.
It's a trap, right? You go in there. And it's completely like very, very narrow, very small space, and there's no way out from it. You see the person go there and get stuck, they can't escape. Then you go behind them and you get stuck. Then the next person comes behind and they get stuck. That's the meaning of Yuki you see them enter elicits Hall and you follow them.
This is not my personal opinion. This is what the prophets I send them said. They said O Messenger of Allah. Do you mean the Jews and the Christians? Carla Furman Who else do I mean? That's what he said Who else do I mean?
We must be careful not to follow them. We must be careful not to resemble them so that when they fit and come we don't end up following them into the fitna following them into their trials and tribulations and these fit in for them what do they come from? They come from a vulnerable world Jehan, right in my Adobe Allah one of Bali. They come from people who know the truth but follow their desires, and people who don't know their religion or, and because the typical nature of the hood and and Asara al Kitab is that either they know what they should be doing, but they don't do it. Or they don't even know the difference between what's right and wrong. But this is what caused
them to go into fit and and good to go astray. And this is what will cause us to go astray if we don't stop this habit of following them.
That's a good place for me to stop. It's time for the Yvan sha Allah Allah after the calamity a couple of small questions from the audience Inshallah, just briefly and we leave the video on for that reason you lie to Allah and then in sha Allah Who Tada we will break for our final lecture after Assa which is going to be on the topic of an invitation from Allah
want to go
she had one
more hand man that was so
my dog was so
heavy on the slaughter
along Kubota wha ah one Kibo
Okay insha Allah. So let's see if we have some questions from
the brothers and sisters who are here. Just we take like maximum maximum five to 10 minutes and then sha Allah to Allah we will break for salata acid and our final talk of the day which is going to be on the topic of
an invitation from Allah
Do you have questions from the brothers or sisters you have had
as you like whatever as you think is best, what's your take on internships can be taken any beneficial knowledge from the
While I look the fact that someone teaches online i don't see any harm with it many of our mesh if homicidal kebab they teach online my problem is someone who teaches without knowledge whether they are on the internet or not on the Internet the Internet is our see that means for teaching. It doesn't matter whether they are on the internet or are not on the internet. But do they teach with knowledge and do they practice the knowledge they teach? You do you see someone like you I can't even describe I mean you guys know the kind of people that I'm speaking about. But to see someone who is far critical is to karma be coolly manner. In every single meaning of the word the person is
a facet. They have not one single hand on practicing any part of Islam that you can see and they're given fatawa for this is the problem whether they're on the internet or off the internet. Now
wanting to set up
the issue of
mortgage to riba interest for somebody wants to get into mortgage
the conventional mortgage here you have to pay
So with regard to the spread of Riba, the spread of Riba is one of the signs of the hour. The Prophet sighs made it from the signs one of the signs of the hour is into shower or Reba, Reba will be everywhere.
As regards the ruling of river, Allah azza wa jal, he said
Alladhina Khurana Reba Hola, como una camisa como Lidiya to hobble to shaytaan Amina mess.
Delhi can be unknown call or enamel bay or Mr. Riva wa Hala who will be our heart Rama Reba.
Thurmond Jaya humo Eva to Mirabai Fenter hasta la who myself our Ambu Illa woman adda hola echo us have now hopefully haha to
Allah azza wa jal said those who devour riba will not stand on the Day of Resurrection like except like the ones who are beaten by the shaytaan and possessed into insanity.
That is because they say trading and Riba is the same that's the first important point they say there's no escape any Riba and trading is the same anyway. We have to do Reba. Reba we have to do it.
But Allah has made trading halal and riba haram so for example, Allah has made renting a house halal, and Allah has made Riba in a house haram
there are some people who come and say, oh, you know, I can't rent renting and renting it. That's because they say in in MLB, or method or Uber, they say this renting and rebuy it's you know, renting I pay more money. What a hell Allah who will be our Hari Rama riba but Allah made renting halal, and Allah made buying halal, and Allah made buying it by cash Hello. And Allah made borrowing it interest free from someone halal, but Allah made riba haram. So whoever got the message from Allah and then they stopped their affairs with Allah and whoever goes back to riba after they got that message, they are the people of the fire and they will be in it forever.
The first thing is we understood that Allah made it.
The second thing is that we understood that Riba is not something that can be allowed for a hijab.
There are two types of haram in Islam. There is something which is haram that can be allowed for a need any when people really need it, when people really need it. And there are things that cannot be halal, except for a thorough and necessity. So for example, the issue of men and women being together in the same space. Haram right, Salam
But is it haram in of itself or It's haram because of what it leads to is haram because of what it leads to. So for example, in the market where you cannot easily have a separate shop for a man and another shop for a woman, they can use the same shop but they keep us apart as much as they can separate Riba is not like that. rebar is something that is haram to Hareem on us, Li It's haram feed that he he in itself. So it can only be allowed for a thorough and necessity. And the necessity is something that would cause you to lose your life, or similar to it.
But what people are doing is they're allowing rebar for a need, they say, Look, I need rebar, you know, I need a house of my own. But need is not the same as necessity. Then we come to the issues of the Islamic banks. And in reality, I'm not going to speak about every Islamic Bank. I'm not qualified to sit here and say I've studied every Islamic bank, but a lot of Islamic finance very sadly. It is built upon here. It's built upon loopholes. It's built upon manipulating the Sharia. And it's not Islamically compliant. It just doesn't meet the standards the profit sighs I'm set and again, I'm not talking about every bank or every country there could be some great country some
great banks, but I'm talking about the general trend in Islamic finance is what is here making loopholes you're not changing the words of things Tada Euro Esma taking the word Riba and call it a rebel
call it profit palace. We charge you 2.5% rebel and you will rebel rate and you will profit rate
if I call it a rebel rebel I smile Allah to hear your haha it's Reba or it's not rubber that's it. Call it rebel call it far either call it here call it sadaqa Call it what you like Riba is riba if it's riba it doesn't matter what you change the name to its Riba.
So I would advise people at this moment in time that you don't go anywhere near a conventional mortgage in anything, and that if you go for an Islamic mortgage, you check and double check and triple check every single condition that you don't end up going for something where they just changed the word rebar and call it a job rent.
to you but rent has a nature rent has a has a condition for it, and it has neat it has rules for it. Oh, never mind the rules. We charge you 7.5% annual rent rate. To be honest with you. Am I renting? Or am I paying rent but you tell me I'm not interested in the name. You can take sadaqa and call it Reba if you want while you will be sadaqat The reality is what I'm interested in. Is it rent or is it Aruba? Make it clear to me? Which one is it rent or whatever? Don't say to me it's rent because I call it rent. And don't say to me that a bottle of wine is grape juice because it's made out of grips.
Is it rent or is it Reba you make it clear to me with the shelter conditions of renting in Islam? Is it rent or is it riba don't give me this it's rent because I call it rent that's very serious issue. I do believe that there could be and should be an inshallah fine financial institutions all over the world who are doing this properly. But I also am very scared by the general trend that it's okay to just change the name, cross out the word riba right rent and everyone will be happy it's halal for you. Just be careful of that and be careful of other things that are haram like selling what you don't own like having two contracts combined into one contract and other things that the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam made haram so my advice insha Allah is that if you have to rent your whole life and you never own a house inshallah Allah terracotta it's not going to hurt you inshallah. Rather do what you need to do. If you have to buy a house, try to lend the money from brothers, sisters, people practicing, let them lend you some money, you pay some back, say buy a small house, then build upon it, maybe sell it for a little bit more and buy a little bit bigger one, but don't have this thing that I have to have a mortgage because
it's a dark era. It's not a doddle. Because there is an alternative.
Do we have any one from the sisters last one? Give me Give me the last one shot from the sisters and I will try not to answer too long.
Who would you recommend for women to seek knowledge from as the masjid are predominately male authors? It's very true. We really do suffer from a lack of female scholars. Now I don't say they are not there for two reasons we suffer. Number one is we don't have a culture of producing female scholars. That's the first problem we have which we used to have in the past. From the time of Aisha Radi Allahu anha under Sahaba yet onwards, we had a
Culture of women who learned the religion to the highest standard that it can be learned, female scholars of Hadith scholars of fic we had. The first problem is we left that. The second problem is that by nature, a woman
will be less visible than a man. Is that not the nature of Islam? Well, he says that curl curl untha By default, you do not expect the woman to have this, you know, YouTube channel, and she sat there in front of everyone's mind, like it is different. So first of all, the women are the women who have a culture of scholarship and Islam are fewer than they were in the past. And the second problem is, they will not be obvious, you're not going to find them in front of everyone sitting in front of the men teaching our issue when the men used to come to her. They used to ask us l Ohana minhwa hijab from behind the partition. So they would go to the door, they would knock, they will look away, they
would say our mother Aisha, what do you say about this hadith? What do you say about this issue in fic, and she will give them the fatawa. And she will give them the Hadith. So the first thing is to find those women is going to be harder for you, because you're going to have to look for them, they're not going to be in front of you on the stage. And the second thing is that the number of them is smaller than it was. So we need to encourage our women, our daughters, our sisters, we need to encourage them to have that dedication. And I believe one of the best means for this whole life is online learning. Because it's difficult for a woman to travel without a macro. She can't. And
even if she has a Muharram it's hard for her to get at the feet of the meal scholars right? How will she has to be behind the politician and how will she get access? Yes, she has female scholars she finds that's true, but it's not easy for her. But online really does provide a very, very good opportunity for her to study from very senior people in sha Allah are our machines from our major machines. They have online courses, she had transaxle better heavy to allow to ALEC has courses and some of them the courses are dedicated for sisters. In Dubai, we have Gemini, Tara bear, they have a sister section they always bring in mashallah scholars who teach. So there's opportunities there.
Small opportunity perhaps look at meu and Madras Tara Maria, which we have, we accept both male and female students. And we have a really detailed in Sharla very strong students of knowledge program, which is going on in sha Allah. So perhaps that could be a stepping stone does that mean I think that you should just take from them not know you take from there and then use it as a stepping stone to access scholars and then you know, the sister husband takes her and she gets to see some of them are shy or she manages to speak to them by phone. There's ways but start at least the Online provides you a good way of starting in shallow data and making a start. And ultimately if we revive
this culture, the Sunnah of knowledge among our sisters and learning Islam properly, then the situation would improve a lot in shot along to Allah and Allah azza wa jal knows best so we're going to stop it there. We've got our last lecture coming up in 20 minutes ish. Sort of inshallah. Hello Allahu Allah wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he will be here h main
