00:00:11--> 00:00:20

are at least familiar with tabouleh candidemia d mu kuwahara coalition body buddy

00:00:28--> 00:00:59

he created life and death so he tests you Who among you will do the best of deeds the best of deeds? Well who the hell up a semi auto physic at a young what can assure Alabama Leah Blue accom iu comm action ama and so on hood, verse seven, Allah Subhana Allah said that he created the heavens and the earth, and the purpose behind the creation of the heavens and earth to test us who will pass and who will fail who will do good to the best of deeds.

00:01:01--> 00:01:13

And me 700 of the allow that individual, some of them said a dunia who worked on Haleakala were in the LA Mr. Khalifa configure Leon Boracay Fatah,

00:01:14--> 00:02:05

a dunya is beautiful is green and so attractive and allow us to live for comeon Allah will give you authority over access to it. So he will know how you will do. That's why maybe salatu salam once he said, Well, I emailed Falco ashati I'm not worried about poverty. So many times we will love them with good money with good sum of money or you secure them financially. It is worth to worry about but it became our biggest concern, and there'll be so Sunland saying that that's not his biggest concern. His biggest concern was what he said to her in Mr. ATIA and the article dounia, fat NFS suhar cannot and if so, facto uniqa can come and look at him. He said, what I worry about the most,

00:02:05--> 00:02:55

that this dunya this life won't be open wildly for you. Yeah, and you'll have access to all the wealth of the world, you have an easy way to make money to own homes to do this, to do that. So you will run after you focus on the dunya and it became a goal instead of them being a mean for you, and it will destroy you as destroy the nations before you. Allah Subhana Allah said, so he will see he will test in Arabic language we have two words very close to each other, but they have different meanings. Or you can accent Amana verses or you know, ferula the word fit riff refer usually to the action of the limbs. What do you do with your hand with your legs? That's what that's of.

00:02:56--> 00:03:00

Man, it includes the actions of the heart. So

00:03:02--> 00:03:03

what do you do with your

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

heart? To see the best of our deeds in our heart? Sometimes we try very well.

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

You know, for somebody perfectly do everything the best of the Allahu Akbar exactly like the prophets of Salaam. But this is a fad. But there is no for sure.

00:03:26--> 00:03:51

It may be the best affair but not the best of Amma there is no focus in the Salah. There is no impact on his heart. So a lot of time we think it's there Can we compete over the fan of the thing that we do with our lens, but we don't watch that also, we have to make sure that the action of our hearts are the best. It's our hearts are pure, our heart Don't carry envy and join us and

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

that you're happy satisfied, please. You truly this is part

00:03:59--> 00:04:07

by saying I've been a bastard that after that and fully within a minute said that the best of deed means ask us.

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

Allah so who was

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

Yeah, and in the best of deeds is the one

00:04:14--> 00:04:44

sincerely for a lot. And it's done according to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And most will say it's very interesting, because I just told you, Amma, it's the combination of the action of the hearts and the limbs. So last is an action of the heart. And that what you do with your hand when you do the movement your body learns is to follow the prophets of Salaam the way he prayed the way he fast we thought but still you have to watch also your

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

heart

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

also said

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

that's why it was best of

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

the deeds to see you will do the best of the deeds is not the most of the deeds that

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

In the Day of Judgment, what will elevate you is not how much you did as much how good you did how correctly you did it. So enabler that allows us to elevate people by thing worth knowing about Apple buckup. She said, Well, lucky my character Abby, will lie. My father was not among the companion, the one who used to fast the most. normally used to pray in the night, the most Makana Axl Rose hydrosol am pm only late last year.

00:05:35--> 00:05:40

But what really have made a book of Excel is the quality of his deeds.

00:05:41--> 00:06:33

in Medina, Amman where our middle son had in law Moliro, a German accent an amateur. And also in other verses that we started off with our e cap and the demon at a pub bedroom, an accent, a map, and all that kind of data, except from them the best of the DJ. And he did, that did done sincerely with following the profits of the loss of limb syndrome. Also, that is something else in this verse, that Allah subhanho wa Taala had beautified the earth have made the earth whatever it is to beautify that Earth and the kind of it's an adornment for the earth, from this island. In the last set, beautifying yourself adornment for you it is permissible, and it is from the blessing In the name of

00:06:33--> 00:06:57

Allah subhanaw taala. So the person should beautify himself purify herself, according to the guidelines of the Sharia, Allah subhana wa tada have met us in the best fashion and would like us to see us look, good smell, and he loves beauty. And Allah Subhana Allah said, and man when the moon is enough to hire,

00:06:59--> 00:07:25

or this dormant for this dunya and Allah said, while hyena will be hard, I will hemiola Taka Buddha was Xena, he made these capsules that you possess. And the world at that time mainly was made of the most expensive one to own a lot of cameras and a lot of forces. It's a beauty something to to feel happy with it. So beautifying your home or your or your

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

but a lot, don't let it fool you.

00:07:31--> 00:07:43

Because soon What will happen to it was a manager who had a slot, He then told that our last panel data set that everything on the face of this earth

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

which is

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

any

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

brain the wall

00:07:56--> 00:07:56

this

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

one time or anything, this will happen. The damage to the Earth would be

00:08:10--> 00:08:11

what it

00:08:13--> 00:08:20

took off white and kind of glide very light gray color. That's how the color of the earth

00:08:21--> 00:08:28

and generation come home. It is like the bread the wheat bread. That's the color of it.

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

So if this is the case, an

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

argument must be an opinion.

00:08:40--> 00:08:45

But soon it will vanish and will fall apart. Which one will you choose?

00:08:47--> 00:09:22

Definitely something will last with you. He said so what about a house that made of gold it will last forever? or silver like in gender. And this dunya you have houses made of wood soon wood will be collapse. And you still choose the wood over the gold and the temporary over the permit. Yeah, I mean life. It doesn't make any sense. And all these examples from our last panel to add up to wake us up to tell us that this dunya is never meant to be a place where you settle. You always have to put your eyes on that.

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

I have a question. So this verse, this surah addressing who

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

at that time of the process.

00:09:34--> 00:09:37

What how this would relate to Quraysh

00:09:40--> 00:09:46

because boys don't believe in the resurrection in Africa, but who's else

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

who plays consulted.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

So that means whatever the answer of the process Allah it will be taken to the Jews. So our loss of habitat

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

Telling the Jews that the dunya is temporary, and you will come back to me. So if you know the truth, don't hide it.

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

Don't hide the truth for a temporary gain.

00:10:14--> 00:10:28

If you truly know that this is our sort of love, believe in him. If you truly know that this is the app, believe in Mohammed or sunlamp, don't change the word of Allah, the tester will be effeminate, Sonia.

00:10:32--> 00:10:48

Law address the verse, it makes perfect sense. That's why I will cite one of the most beautiful way to have to debate on the Koran is to know the reason behind that verse why Allah revealed it, because it conflicts

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

with people or an incident

00:10:53--> 00:11:02

that Allah Subhana Allah started the core math. All this was introduction, then now he answered the question.

00:11:03--> 00:11:19

He said, m hassinger. And nos haberl Cafe we're lucky we can mean it now algebra? Or have you thought that the companions of that cave and that are rocking? And I will tell you what

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

were among our signs. A wonder? Okay, so here

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

unpassable? Have you thought, this way in speaking Arabic language and passive? Did you watch the

00:11:39--> 00:11:51

most difficult thing to go over the calf of the cave? Or have the most wander story? Or it is the most amazing thing in the last creation? You're wrong?

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

And here you see this speech is not only to the court, it is the Jews who told them about

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

the game in the story of law.

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

And the story of musante is set up specifically.

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

Here he sat inside that have you thought that the companions of the cave

00:12:20--> 00:12:29

in US habit and cafe wha are lucky. Here it is very interesting point. Some of them have a city mentioned.

00:12:31--> 00:12:46

You remember I told you in the beginning that maybe someone did not answer for a while? That's right. So when he did not answer immediately, what the Jews at that time or who brought this issue, and that prop the people of Croatia thought

00:12:48--> 00:13:00

that it'd be sallallahu Sallam did not have an answer. He's not a true prophet. And that's the when they prove that the Prophet not approve nonprofit. So the surah came

00:13:01--> 00:13:09

it time made their hope, high. Okay, then all of a sudden uncom to destroy over hopes

00:13:11--> 00:13:26

and even be felt that in me so someone does not even if he was a true, that means that Allah subhanaw taala refined and sold them said that that is not qualified to receive that message anymore. That's why Allah doesn't send messengers to him his debris anymore.

00:13:27--> 00:14:02

So all of a sudden, the verses did not come one or two, but that way at the top, and why after this come abundant. So the thought that individuals are not anymore going to receive this message is powerful, and that he cannot challenge. No, it comes one after another one after another. And it became an abundant number two. So the hope of no more revelation destroys the hope that the process alone will not be able to know about the story of the people of the game destroyed.

00:14:04--> 00:14:21

That says no one more fallible of this, which is I'll put an address in this story, something that they did not ask about but they are practicing, which is to confirm the concept of resurrection.

00:14:23--> 00:14:36

The story of the people of the cave, the Jews was talking about historical perspective. I was born and bred, broke. If he did this to them, he's capable of doing it to anyone else.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

To prove resurrection for them.

00:14:41--> 00:14:47

Which is a very beautiful message to the people off flourish. And that

00:14:49--> 00:14:57

we're not in the business of just telling story to people religiously. You know, that's why I never was a history book.

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

occurrence not

00:15:00--> 00:15:00

history book

00:15:02--> 00:15:20

is a book of guidance that contains some history, some historical information and incident, what's the different historian, they bring you the story? storyteller tell you the stories. I never was interested in just telling your story and interested to bring the story so you can learn.

00:15:24--> 00:15:24

So you can learn.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

What about the messengers sent to Africa?

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

What about the Chinese messenger?

00:15:33--> 00:15:45

What about, you know, even lived? I'm sure there are hundreds of 1000s of years. What about the receive a messenger who's their messenger is sending them. But I know last month, and I said,

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

each and every nation there is a messenger was sent to them. So I have no doubt that there were messengers sent to these nation

00:15:54--> 00:15:54

parties.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

Humanity

00:15:57--> 00:16:25

that's not the goal of the Quran. So why aren't documented the history of the two nation the Jews and the Christians? Because in the visa, someone said that this ummah, Allah said that this ummah will follow the footsteps of the Jews and Christians, we have so so much similarity, the same test the same challenges. So Allah brought the story of the desert Christian before us so we can learn from the success and we can learn from their mistakes.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

Other Stories is irrelevant to us. So that's why there is no much emphasis or talk about it.

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

And that's, that's the nature of that plan.

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

So

00:16:42--> 00:17:10

Allah subhanaw taala, before he starts telling the story to us, he confirmed one important fact earlier, which is that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. And the story is he's going to tell you now, it is not from him, it is revealed to him through a loss plan over to Allah. And Allah is a witness over that. That can Illa Yesh, hadoo, Bonanza, la lake and Zelo via email law is a witness

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

to his now with both Yes, Shannon waka biLlahi shahida.

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

So,

00:17:21--> 00:17:27

why Alas, paradata will make this fact clear before starting the story.

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

What do you think?

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

Well, I made this point so clearly before telling the story of the people the

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

question, what's the purpose of asking the prophets of Salaam about the story of the people of the cat of the cave?

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

To prove what

00:17:49--> 00:18:01

that is a messenger around. So Allah saying to them, that you didn't need the testimony of the Jewish rabbis to tell you Mohammed is a messenger of Allah, I am confirming that

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

what kefa biLlahi shahida and it's enough that Allah He is the witness of that.

00:18:10--> 00:18:48

That's not the goal. But last month, Ira confirmed the prophethood of Muhammad wa sallam in so many different way. So here, Allah subhanaw taala told us the story of them and he said if you think this is the most wonderful thing that ever happened, you're wrong. But if you look around there is more magnificent and things that are lucky created and ate. But sometimes we can be so fascinated by how last minute IRA put those to sleep that resurrected them after all this years. You know what there's something greater than the creation of heavens and earth is greater than this story.

00:18:50--> 00:19:05

And there's so many things that alum Make way greater than this. Yeah, and he has actions if you think that this is a wonder oh how Allah did that. You know, that is bigger thing you can look at it to show you the greatness of Allah like the way he created the heavens and the earth.

00:19:06--> 00:19:39

There is more story in the Koran more amazed you can be amused by it way more than the story of the people over the calf. Like the story of those who went out of their homes 1000s that a lot told them move to die. Though the story that I mentioned in saltimbocca or the man that who Allah subhana wa tada puts him to death on the Tuesday and resurrected him him and his mule or donkey.

00:19:41--> 00:19:50

So Allah subhanaw taala when he said that a wonder of that. Now there is even greater things almost to Allah have made and by the way,

00:19:52--> 00:19:52

one

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

is Allah Lita v mon, Eg la

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

me Oh,

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Some kind of Allah when he said I wonder of this it's not because I'm scared surprise no it is because I want to show how great this is

00:20:11--> 00:20:26

you know you like for example if I side I'm always wonder how beautiful community you are how to organize must have this is how clean this not because when I walk in I'm expecting to see it who the school to be dirty.

00:20:27--> 00:20:59

No, I want to honor them. I'm it's not because doubt I'm wondering because I'm surprised. No, I know that's what I'm expecting. But I want to show how great this is. So what do you see the Wonder because some people said deny, for example, one of the kilowatt Bella Jeep two s one agigaram bukem min Toluca, evatik, waka waka Li, Allah is wonder by how, you know people are so giving up hope and a lot even though the relief is so soon to them.

00:21:01--> 00:21:25

So people said oh, I kind of wonder because that means he doesn't know No, that's not what it is. The Wonder from Allah is not because he doesn't know it is because he is not because something surprised them because he's want to show you the honor. He wants to honor the thing that he's speaking about. So here when I lost my thought I said that this story is a wonder story is something also that I wonder about, because it's a great story of these young men.

00:21:26--> 00:21:32

He said, the people of the cave or the young men of the people of the cave, and our

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

team became a huge debate between the scholar what it means some people said or rakeem, it means the name of the cave.

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

And that doesn't make sense. Because Allah said, the people of the cave and the cave, or the view of the cave, silence doesn't really stand up. Some people said, the people of the cave and

00:21:56--> 00:22:15

the boys and the dog. So you mentioned the name of the dog. But the LMS said, Would it be possible that Allah mentioned the name of the doc not the mentioned the main the name of the believers? It doesn't really add up as well, doesn't really any is not a very strong opinion. They said no, it is their book.

00:22:17--> 00:22:53

But also the book that they were following. It's like you have the tour of the Bible. In this it's a book, but also this not very strong. Why? Because what it's no matter how Allah said they are either Jews or Christians, okay, they don't have their own book, actually, they never had a messenger, they arrived to this, through the guidance through the fifth law, whatever faith that they have at that time, but they're people they will confirm the surrounded by non believer at that time, they said Our team is actually a slate

00:22:56--> 00:23:20

stone that their names was were engraved on it. So the people of the cave and that slide or that rock, because this rock that people inherited generation after generation, but that doesn't seem to be also accurate. Why? Because if this rock known to the people of Makkah, why would they go to that?

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

Why would they make it as something of a challenge to the prophets of Allah, that means their story is unknown to the people of McCann to Mohammed sauce Allah. So that cannot be something

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

basically, no

00:23:36--> 00:23:45

other people set, which is very famous opinion among them of a city and then also is not very strong opinion, my opinion. This is our team. It's another nation.

00:23:46--> 00:23:52

So the people of the cave and the people are from Hakeem. Rahim is and if another village another story.

00:23:53--> 00:24:16

But this is very hard, very, very far away to be true. Why? Because it doesn't make any sense. A lot never talked about this nation. never mentioned them in the suit or outside the sword or any other place in the Quran. Allah doesn't just give random Lords like this. Like I say, Hey, how about the people of Toronto and the people off? muster? Touka

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

what I hope is not the city because he has a lot of funny names here.

00:24:23--> 00:24:32

You know, it's just like what's it doesn't make any sense if I say something, nobody could wave will allow item.

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

One of the most famous opinion, opinion it is basically that aboard. On to the charity did nations after another and in their book in their Torah, in their visit the books that we have that we inherited from the rabbi's from their forefathers in the skulls before them, that is the story of them is mentioned in these either chapter of the book

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

Or it's a specific book that they are aware of, because the word or theme comes from the word Mark O'Meara anniemac, to something written. And that's what is that seems to be the most any strongest opinion among that and facility. Here you will find tons of narrations, tons of narrations taken from an aside from the children of Israel, about the name of their dogs, the color of the dog, the name of their cave, where it is located, and which mountain it is and what year and you will find things unbelievable, okay, and what's their names, what their positions, what kind of role they had in their society, so many details that is not from the Qatar blood from the Quran or the son of the

00:25:50--> 00:25:57

prophets of Allah. But it mentioned by some of the Tabby, Ian and even some of the Sahaba what can we learn from this?

00:25:58--> 00:26:37

First of all, is this allowed? Yes, individual some of them said help before Ambani so it will help you're allowed to narrate the stories of the gender of Israel, there is no harm for that. It doesn't can we cannot believe it is absolutely true. No, we say it's absolutely like, we don't know. First of all, but I didn't care for these details. Because irrelevant is, so what if his name of this dog is this type of dog? Or that kind of dog doesn't really make a difference to us? That's right, it's a white dog or a striped dog's or it is a black dog or who it doesn't make any difference to us. That's right. So far, I've never cared for mentioning these details for the purpose of security. But

00:26:37--> 00:26:49

what kind of lesson we learned from this, that while embarking on the law, what that means to us when we see an aroma coating from the children of Israel, from this jet rabbis from the juice colors,

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

in my opinion, Leiden, that shows the level of interactions between the Muslim community and the non Muslims.

00:26:59--> 00:27:12

When the US went to Egypt, he came back with what the way they have two camels loaded with books from the people of the book, you read it benefited from it.

00:27:14--> 00:27:36

And then that shows me one of the base that I always used to say that the interfaith work is something happened a long time ago. It's not something in new, where people from different faiths can come and exchange and learn. Yes, just yesterday, I was telling one of my friends and brothers, I said, It is something common to

00:27:39--> 00:27:47

attend the teaching of a scours and Hadith like kahuzi. For example, one of our students sit in the first row

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

to Hamilton catheter rewire. One how to talk about life.

00:27:54--> 00:28:03

And even we have a chapter in lumen Hadith, that no Muslim if you hear Hadith, it's allowed for him to basically, if he said, I heard this when I was not Muslim,

00:28:04--> 00:28:11

that's fine. But when he delivered it, we only accept the integration of Muslim. So let's say you became Muslim later on today. He

00:28:12--> 00:28:42

was not Muslim. We accepted from her knowledge is exchange. And that's something in my opinion, very interesting. Even I start implementing this in some of my classes, like I asked some of the scholars in Christianity and Jews that what do you guys think of this? What is your view about this? just explore what they say. And I'm thinking this is very interesting. Anyway, that also kind of said, is our fifth year to eat a calf.

00:28:43--> 00:29:02

And when youth retreated to the cave, and said, Our Lord grant us from your self mercy, I'm prepared for us from our affair, right? guidance. Russia.

00:29:03--> 00:29:11

And he was, he said, this is interesting translation. He said when the youth retreated to the cave,

00:29:13--> 00:29:19

I took karate, right. What is the detail that was given here?

00:29:21--> 00:29:23

They are young.

00:29:25--> 00:29:36

That's right. They are young. What we benefit from that. While on in many times you will see more than one time with a lot talk about them. He mentioned that you were youth.

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

Young, what would be the point

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

they stop. They are wise. Why was the mutually goes with that.

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

With that

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

older

00:30:02--> 00:30:16

irmasat that's an indirect way, an indirect way. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah giving test Viet also Allah saw some support. You know most of the people who believed in Mohammed so solid Mecca What are young

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

and all the odors and mechanical fog

00:30:24--> 00:30:32

that's why they said Mohammed only am going to be useful for Atlanta. The woman believed in Mohammed or the ignorant the young the in mature

00:30:34--> 00:30:45

most of the prophets or salaams followers, actually even later on in Medina. Makana man has happened to be so solemn there is only two old men among the Muslim companion, Abu Bakr and Omar and the rest of you

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

look at everybody else and if not

00:30:50--> 00:30:54

I'm delighted when you go look at all the younger

00:30:56--> 00:31:09

are more receptive to you man that's not something to be criticized by as a show you through the history you are more receptive to the help more receptive to accept the truth to hold them the truth and there is nothing shame of that

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

and sometimes unfortunately we do you born yesterday you're going to teach me my Dean

00:31:17--> 00:31:24

you know when your son come or your daughter come to you and tell you I think mama This is not right or Dad, this is not the son of a gun to teach me.

00:31:25--> 00:31:29

You feel like it's there's no shame of God someone younger than you to teach you.

00:31:31--> 00:31:32

There's nothing wrong with

00:31:34--> 00:31:41

it. I was learning from him. And he is way older than him at that time.

00:31:43--> 00:31:49

But still, it is the element doesn't enter doesn't know. Generally speaking doesn't know age.

00:31:50--> 00:31:57

Anyway, he saw in the translation here, he said when the youth returned to the cave,

00:31:59--> 00:32:08

why is translated return? What do you guys think those who understand Arabic, Allah returned, what the word return indicate

00:32:12--> 00:32:31

that this is not the first time to go to that. Okay. That's right. To be honest with you. There's nothing in the Koran or this verse shows that today used to go to this cave before, but it was mentioned by them of a city in sort of a city that they used to.

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

I used to go meet

00:32:37--> 00:33:05

this young man, young, it means from the age of 2015 or 16, all the way to 33. Okay, that's what usually the word 50 means. And 50 it means strong. Why we call them 50 and is still very strong. Okay? Because this is the age where you have you full strength and the word fit yet doesn't mean good or bad. That's why

00:33:08--> 00:33:17

we are young so to refer only to their age I'm saying this because some people made out of that word that means they are believer, that's not really true. They

00:33:18--> 00:33:29

but this young man filled with energy with the strength, the dedicated the left of a battle, and that would make it a wonder.

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

That can lie Yeah, gentlemen is Cheb bliss or savoir Fie.

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

Muslim, if you must know

00:33:41--> 00:33:50

that Allah, Allah is wonder by that boy, or the young man or young woman who do not commit sin, any mainly major.

00:33:52--> 00:34:00

Your desire is rich, it speaks but you still control it. You're not controlled by your desires. This is something last night.

00:34:01--> 00:34:23

But what is the story of these young men? Some people said they were the followers of Jesus. They are follower of a Saudi center. As you know, the Christians were prosecuted by the Romans at that time. So these are Roman law away from the Romans because they were looked after the try to look where the hiding and kill them. But

00:34:25--> 00:34:29

because if they were a Christian,

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

why would the Jews

00:34:32--> 00:34:34

documented their story?

00:34:37--> 00:35:00

Because Jews don't recognize the Christians at that at least and point to the history. They're not recognize the death upon the truth. That's right. They didn't recognize us Jesus, He is a true messenger of lore of his Lord. So if it is documented by the Jews, it means that those were Jews and that's another

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

Other opinion existing facility would just make more. They were going to that Scullers, Judaism. And some said no, they were actually initiative.

00:35:13--> 00:35:41

This In any case, a lot of it looks like that they were Jews from the power of Musashi setup. There are people used to worship the idols, but those stick to the teaching of the Prophet that the teaching of the prophets and from the last paradata whoever that Prophet was, if it knows that it is most of someone else, and they refuse to worship the idols of their people worship okay. And

00:35:42--> 00:36:24

one of the narrations, it says that the new the people go to worship the idols, then they leave. Okay? So when they leave, they used to gather in one place, some centers, the trees of a rock, okay to go to the mountain. And when they found each other this place, they say, Why did you go to the temple? Why did he go to the temple? He said, I don't believe in these first descent. They didn't talk to each other. Then one of them said, Why didn't you go to the temples of everybody's thought of speaking, they said, I don't believe in this, that's wrong. So they found that they all share the same belief without knowing each other's from there, they basically establish a brotherhood among

00:36:24--> 00:36:40

them, and a commitment to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they never they decide that they will never ever accept the check of their people, and they will counter this message with the message of the top eight.

00:36:42--> 00:36:56

Okay. So, as we will see very soon right now, how the start countering the message of short with the message from them to the to it and it ended up a conflict come confrontation. So they brought them to the king.

00:36:58--> 00:37:20

And the king told them is not acceptable to leave the religion of our village and our religion. And he threatened them and he gives them a time, a time to what to repent and to denounce their belief in a lot. And then when that point they decide to want to go to the cave and to hide,

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

so they will not be captured and killed

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

and lost, protected.

00:37:27--> 00:38:04

They will young, full of energy, excitement, this energy and this excitement did not lead them to cause more harm as we see some youth today. see a lot of problems in the world get so angry, so frustrated, and they do things that it doesn't help anyone. It only bring more problems to the problem that exists in the world. But those they have, they have good understanding of the religion, their excitement about the heart and their hate to the Khufu did not lead them to cross the line. Because there is lines you come off cross that is Helen ha

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

did not lead them for example, kill did not lead them to steal did not lead to harm

00:38:13--> 00:38:22

also did not lead them to give up the stood upon the truth. It is very important lesson to learn from this incident.

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

One thing I want to mention

00:38:26--> 00:38:29

that we have to trust the youth

00:38:31--> 00:39:05

and Alma has to put trust in the young men and woman in the community. It is so important to show that trust on them. But also it is so important for the youth if they want to earn this trust from the community from the oma is to show also righteousness because they were just not fit here. They are 50 armored obiora beam. They are 50 ahora. Believers, a young men who are believers, a young man who shows righteousness and deeds.

00:39:06--> 00:39:26

We have to see this in our young men and a woman today that their level of commitment to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is very important to raise our young men and women in our community to be wise to be responsible to feel a sense of responsibility towards the deen of Allah subhana wa tada why

00:39:28--> 00:39:32

train? well educated, well prepared.

00:39:35--> 00:39:39

Come on guys. Why do you think it's so important to invest in the youth?

00:39:41--> 00:39:44

They are the future. What else?

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

Most of the fitting in the world focus on the youth.

00:39:53--> 00:39:57

Most of the fitting that we see around us targeting the youth

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

and if we don't

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

strengthen them if we don't invest in them they crack very soon

00:40:06--> 00:40:19

they will be sucked by all these fit down sock by all these desires are on us. Do you think this whole entire industry haraam industrial that oh go to details, it is all meant to target the youth more than anyone else.

00:40:20--> 00:40:34

And if don't make do don't prepare the youth and make sure that they are righteous, they can you can easily lose them. Also because youth sometimes their excitement and restraint can lead them to wrong actions.

00:40:36--> 00:40:41

And one of the best example we have today as those terrorist groups

00:40:43--> 00:40:46

uplift you notice what food

00:40:50--> 00:40:58

easy for the youth to accept that for to accept the truth is very easy for the youth to accept the truth versus old men and old woman

00:40:59--> 00:41:28

Pamela youth has the ability to follow if we see something makes sense to complete because not attached that Long life to certain culture certain habits they don't think of like when I get older, it became very hard for me to make change in my life versus my kids. They can adopt a change quickly that's one of the thing that's awesome I'm gonna praise this young man for and that's what we invite them to be a true believer it's easy to

00:41:30--> 00:41:34

win the heart of the youth towards the word Islam

00:41:39--> 00:41:42

shuddha they say or they said

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

our Lord

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

Rob banner

00:41:49--> 00:41:50

any Danny

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

is the one who

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

put you with his

00:42:00--> 00:42:03

dogs so you're probably gonna

00:42:05--> 00:42:15

want we don't want the mercy of the king. We don't want the mercy of people and our people we don't want that we want universe and that just completely

00:42:17--> 00:42:41

evil me out of luck. They have no hope and other than Oh, god, that's so beautiful. Mila dunk Yeah, any through you directly. Because Allah can provide you through His mercy through someone else. Or he makes someone to be nice to you. But he didn't want that they want something from him directly. subhana wa Tada. Right now. Mercy.

00:42:42--> 00:42:55

And it is also very interesting that Allah subhana wa Tada. They start with their, they start with the mercy.

00:42:57--> 00:43:13

Why? Because mercy was the reason for them to be guided. First of all, to Allah. out of his mercy, he got an in and out of mercy who would protect them? Well, he then had an MD now, Alicia, and for us.

00:43:14--> 00:43:24

Prepare for us for our affair. Right guidance. I don't know if this is interesting, the best way to translate what Russia means.

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

Russia, Russia.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

It is the best art you can ever ask for.

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

Maybe there's something you go tonight with.

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

The best thing you asked the last panel ever in your life is to ask us

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

to diagnose

00:43:47--> 00:43:47

the nursing.

00:43:49--> 00:43:58

If you see people could look at gold and silver and hide it and keep it hide and protect and

00:44:00--> 00:44:00

long

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

as the meta

00:44:07--> 00:44:11

or why I asked you to give me the strength to be among

00:44:13--> 00:44:17

facial knowledge and the beneficial actions

00:44:19--> 00:44:59

that it will benefit me and it will be good for me. That's why are rushed if it comes by itself, it means the right knowledge and the righteous deeds. If you put a rushed and anywho that together because of who they're here and who they are and the rush together you will have and who that effect to the faith and the rush to refer to the actions. This refer to the heart of knowledge and thus refer to the good deeds. Okay, and who doubt what was shot. And Rashad is the opposite of it's something good opposite of something harmful. That's why we're here.

00:45:01--> 00:45:17

I'm Nicola come, da, da, da da, da da cannot harm you, I cannot benefit you, we Nanana Dr. Shah Merida Mambo. Rashida is enlightened, evil or good for them. So Russia it means something good.

00:45:19--> 00:45:54

What he said Sabina Lucia, Leia sebelah, if they see the guidance that we that they don't take it so the rush comes to the fear as an WIDA and also refer to the deeds that will benefit you. So what this means when they said yeah, Allah give us mercy and rushed. Yeah, and he Allah is the asking last part, the IRA, to protect us from schilke, because that's that opposite of rushed, opposite of the rush. And we ask you to protect us because that was the mercy.

00:45:55--> 00:46:05

Your mercy also of what it means to not to be harmed. And that means your law Don't let us be harmed by our people. Don't let them harm us and our

00:46:12--> 00:46:35

knowledge, not that ignorance that our people do. So this is a very interesting do app at the moment a critical moment in their life where they confuse the just run away from the village with to do so they want us they want to be guided to the right course of action. So that's why they asked for a shot

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

and they want to be protected. That's what they asked for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:46:44--> 00:46:51

In fact, this for those who enjoy Arabic thing, in fact, he not forgotten Exactly.

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

When they went to the cave, when they went to the cave, immediately they set

00:46:59--> 00:47:10

somebody up immediately they said what that means and after we went to the cave immediately they said yeah, Rob, we are ask you from your mercy. We asked you to guide us we

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

can you what lessons that we can learn from this.

00:47:20--> 00:47:31

He did not see the protections in the cave as much as you see. Mercy. Yes, you take your son to the doctor. And he will do the operation but you still make

00:47:33--> 00:47:39

Yes, you do your homework and you study and you analyze this good car. This business good has been

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

happening in the case.

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

Now, let's talk
