00:01:47--> 00:01:48

focus on today.

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Go ahead and read the translation

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

connected all the way.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

I think,

Just one sec

suddenly has tried again.

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

It gets set on the side.

00:02:26--> 00:03:02

When you have turned away from them, and those whom they worship, except the law, then seek refuge in the cave, and your Lord will extend his mercy for you and provide you ease in your matters. You would see the sun when it rose, turning away from their cave towards the right. And when it said bypass them towards the left, and they were lying in the hollow there. That is one of the sons of a law. Whoever whomsoever Allah guides is the one who gets the right path and whomsoever He lets go astray for him, you will find no one to help. No one will need.

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

You would think that they were awake while they were asleep. We turn them on their sides, right and left and their dog had its four legs stretched out to the doorstep. If you had a look at them, you would have fled away from them and would have been filled with

00:03:21--> 00:03:21

Jackalope.

00:03:25--> 00:03:44

smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Juana de Manuela about last class, we stopped at the concept of what it has to move home and when you withdraw from them, when you isolated yourself from them.

00:03:45--> 00:03:53

And there is a concept in our religion in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it called Allah, Allah.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

Watch it, whoever has the phone just turned off.

00:04:02--> 00:04:04

Okay, it's a fun day.

00:04:05--> 00:04:12

So, this concept of alosa, which is isolation, or to withdraw from

00:04:13--> 00:04:36

being part of the live or the public life, or to be part of your society, to isolate yourself from them. What this concept where is there is anything in Islam, called people to withdraw from the society to isolate themselves from the society like these young men dead.

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

This isolation, first of all, it has to it manifests itself in two forms in two ways, and there is the Lucha mania. Number one is a tangible meaning, which is literally physically, you isolate yourself from the society, you go live far away from

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

them, you don't mix with them, you don't deal with them. And the other one, it is an intangible one, Islam and a Ouija, which is basically Yes, you may be with, with with people with your body, but your heart and your mind and your conscious somewhere else, you isolate your soul from them.

00:05:23--> 00:06:10

And sometimes both can be in one situation. Like it gives you example, you might be living in a house, or maybe you've been inviting to a gathering, okay? But in this gathering, you are sitting with them, but you don't like anything happening in this gathering. So you are completely isolated from this gathering, because you thinking about somewhere else and making stuff up. And you know, I'm forced to be here, but you know, what my heart and mind somewhere else, you know, maybe I work in this place I go every day, but I am forced into it on my heart and mind somewhere else. So that's what you call a sherea, which is an intangible kind of isolation that your mind and heart and soul

00:06:10--> 00:06:58

somewhere else than the place that your body is, you see that these young men, both type of isolations happened to them. In the beginning, they lived with their people who used to worship other than a lot, who used to do all these kind of things that they disagree with. And they dis announced it. They told themselves we free ourselves from such worshipping, we free ourselves from such practicing. That's right. And we end up with the other type of isolation, other type of Islam, which is the move to the cave away from them. And nebby sallallahu Sallam told us that there is a time will come yet to Allah nurses, a man, your code how your deen is, the best thing to do for your

00:06:58--> 00:07:24

deen for your Islam for your faith is to go to the mountains, and to isolate yourself from the society and to stay away from people. And that a day will come. And most of the referring that this is will happen when the fall Messiah appear. And yet due to a judge comes where people run away because they will be either killed, or they will be

00:07:25--> 00:07:35

misled by this great trial of the fall Messiah. But it also it could happen at certain time at certain places.

00:07:36--> 00:08:25

So my question here, what is that guidelines for this concept? And how can we understand this fully correct. Because part of the isolation is to isolate yourself from the society and the community living in, you don't mix with the society that you're in. And I think that's something very well need to be discussed here in America, a lot of Muslim community are also very isolated, not they don't mix with the society around them. And where does that come from? What is the guide? What are the guidelines? there is anything I need to fix? Okay, what are the guidelines in in this issue? As for the isolations, which is physically you isolate yourself, you don't mix with people, you don't

00:08:25--> 00:08:52

gather with people, that it is correct, if the reason for it, it is correct. Like for example, a person will leave certain places will leave certain people will leave certain group or maybe isolate himself from certain people because that those people are considered a threat for him for his safety, a threat for his religion, a threat for his family. So he will isolate himself from those people.

00:08:55--> 00:09:43

But he cannot isolate or the doing something hot on when the gather. So I isolate myself from this gathering. I don't be I'm not mixing with them while you're doing the heroin. But while they're doing something permissible or something good or something obligatory, I should not isolate myself from them. I should not abstain from them. I should not have Ursula from the society. For example, in Salatu, Juma insolite and Jana, Yanni I know for example, some people today have this notion. They say, oh, there is so much fitness and the master and people gossip and certain massage handler we don't have that in our method. But in certain masters, they people's that are so much fitna that

00:09:43--> 00:09:52

is this going on so he stopped going to the master? That's not correct. You should look for another machine if there is not you go pray and you leave.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

You don't leave selected Gemma because it is from hand you Nabi sallallahu wasallam you don't leave selected

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

jumbo any last a few months back. Last time I remember I had a discussion with a brother who stopped going to Juma. And I said, Why? He said, shall I benefit nothing from the legal drama. You know, the hotel was so turned off as bad as this. And literally he said, I feel I protect my Deen by isolating myself from the people. I'm not even mixing with them in Juma so that's from the shape on this type of isolation is absolutely hard on some people, when they see the Muslim community have some problems, what they do they isolate themselves from the Muslim community and they don't mix with them anymore. This isolation is completely wrong. That's not the Islam that the Sharia said about at

00:10:46--> 00:11:17

least you don't isolate yourself from them when they doing something correct something from the deen like the the Jamaat or the Salah, the Joomla ijazah to Tao Scylla to rahem being good to your your kinship. That's why Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he talked about the people who isolated themselves from the societies that he had that NASA inland and higher so he Muslim, he said he will isolate himself from the people except from the good thing and the good things he will mix with people.

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

And also,

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

Eben Romero de la

00:11:23--> 00:11:52

Mancha. Hey, Alcatel terracina Omen Carla. Hi Ella, Salah Jana. In his time. in Medina, there was a great fitna in Medina. At that time, the whole outage came and he killed a thematic net fan, and there were a huge chaos. But even Omar still goes to the masjid and pray even the one who will lead the prayer. The majority of the people in the mustard were among them, the many of them participated in killing a man of the allowance.

00:11:53--> 00:12:00

So the city of Miramar? How can you go to the restroom and all these people, bad people, they just killed earth model their land?

00:12:01--> 00:12:23

How can you go to the masjid, he said, whenever someone said come to prayer, I go, whenever someone say come to fight, I don't go. So he isolated himself from them when it comes to their evil actions, but he did not isolate himself from being part of the Jamaat and the masjid and praying in the Salah.

00:12:25--> 00:13:16

Also, it is a permissible for the person to isolate himself from the community for a valid reason. Like for example, someone say, you know what I don't come to, but not to the obligatory things like, Hey, I don't come to mix with the community a lot. I don't socialize a lot with people, because I want to free myself to seek knowledge. You know what? To pass an exam. Dr. Anna's here in this mustard. best example of Ursula, you know what, for the last five months or so, he is with us and not with us. He always sitting in that table isolating himself from us, the mix with us don't talk to us. Why? Because he's a bar exam to pass in that medical school. He's completely isolated. Even

00:13:16--> 00:13:50

someone told me what's wrong with this guy. He didn't mean any sit with us. It is for a valid reason. Because he has an exam he prepared himself for it. So that's right. You need to isolate yourself for a right reason it is permissible, like FEMA has submitted nefs you want not to mix it with people after Asia or after fragile, or because you want to focus on the Corolla, focus on contemplating and last paradata creation, reviewing yourself having Maha Sabha having a slight talent fixing your heart, that's fine.

00:13:52--> 00:14:12

Also, if this is the case, we should know that is the isolation, not necessarily to be generalized. You can isolate yourself from certain type of people, but not some, the people who waste your time the people who lead you to do wrong, not from the people who are good, or well let it lead you to do something right.

00:14:13--> 00:14:57

It is absolutely permissible in a time of chaos, a time of confusion for the person to isolate himself from the public. And you know what, I don't want to deal with the people. Even he will withdraw from the whole entire society. And we'll go to his house. Even he can pray at his house. When it's a huge fitna that involve people dying people's lives in danger in things like of this nature, they are allowed to isolate themselves from the society. If they cannot do any good or change or they feel their contribution will not help in any form or any shape

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

and that's why you need to be solid

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

Are you are you a celeb mentioned in the end of the day, you're gonna hire Romanian Muslim, the best anything the Muslim can do is to have some shapes and go to the mountain taking care of them run basically following the rain. And your fear will be Dini human are fitted. The point is, the T is running away from the Phaeton protecting his Dean from the Phaeton.

00:15:28--> 00:15:34

And because of this, I want to say, in some some countries, there happened fitten

00:15:38--> 00:16:03

a great test for the society in these countries, like in Egypt, what happened in Egypt with the, what they call the Arab Spring, and all those revolutions and what happened after that you have in Libya, you have in Syria, you have in many places, there is a lot of chaos, a lot of problems. So if someone decided to say, you know what, I don't want to pass an opinion.

00:16:04--> 00:16:35

I want to isolate myself completely from this old thing. I don't want to pass a judgement for or against, I don't want to take sides, I don't want to talk about this issue at all, I want to be completely off, and I will leave the people not going to have a Facebook, I'm not going to have social media, I'm not going to talk about this, I don't want to even be part, I'm closing down all my classes, and I'm shutting down everything, which is I know, some of my friends did that.

00:16:36--> 00:17:04

In Egypt for him, like for example, and they decided to be completely silent for a good period of time, because they are so confused about the situation. Is that something permissible? Absolutely, it is permissible. And I'm saying this, because we have to be also shows mercy and ease on our brothers, if they choose that position. Because that position, you cannot criticize them for it. But

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

is this the best position? Absolutely.

00:17:09--> 00:17:31

Now, because the Muslim at that time, the community and that time looking for leader to lead them, but maybe it is the best for him, but not necessarily the best for the whole entire society. But you cannot blame him if he cannot help. If he cannot help and he withdrew from the society. That's the best I can.

00:17:32--> 00:17:58

He should not be blamed, he should not be attacked, he should not be labeled. And and unfortunately, this is happened in many forms. Sometimes even in in some of the local issues. If you don't have anything to say, and you basically prefer or refrain from making or passing any comment and a modern issues. Nobody can blame you for that. But I will tell you

00:17:59--> 00:18:03

in time of tests, and time of chaos.

00:18:05--> 00:18:08

People recognize who true leaders and who's not.

00:18:09--> 00:18:19

People recognize who is the person who have the wisdom and the element that about the stood fast and during the time of fitna and who is not.

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

And we should all remember what the profits are sell themselves.

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

And let the hospital nurse led you to nurse I will move me to the hospital nurse, where else below

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

the light hearted to homeowners,

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

the movement who mix with people,

00:18:41--> 00:18:58

and he or she is patient with their problems and complaints. And you know, because when you deal with people who have problems, you will be patient with them better than the one who isolate himself from the society and have no patience for people reported by

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

God.

00:19:02--> 00:19:49

I think isolating ourselves completely from the society is not an advantage for anyone, especially for the people of TAO to isolate yourself from the society completely. That will not bring any good to us, especially here for America as a society. And ultimately the truth before 911. Many of our community was very isolated. Many Muslim community was completely isolated, and live in a bubble live in a shell and they don't want to ever open up to any other society didn't even care about the others the world around them. They live in for themselves among themselves, and that's about it. And that was not in many cases in many community was the smart move.

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

As a matter of fact, it is important for us as a community, to be integrated into society to deal with other people may

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

with other people, especially in the area of goodness, the idea that it will bring benefit to us and to the society in large.

00:20:11--> 00:20:24

The movement his or her participation in public life, bring good bring justice, reduce evil, reduce immorality, reduce injustice,

00:20:25--> 00:20:36

shareholders slammed into me I give you a very good example, have been given to me a time. That is an invader force came and invaded the Muslim world, it called

00:20:38--> 00:20:48

the mogul and the mogul, the Tata. They came and they destroy Baghdad, and they basically will reach to Syria, and they took over all this region.

00:20:49--> 00:21:36

They ended up Muslims, but they still they are Muslims, but still monsters. Because it is very ironic. Not every person became Muslim. He knows what he used to be, you know, you have a Muslim was still a monster and an angry person, a Muslim who is a miser and stingy a Muslim who is coward a Muslim who is, you know, it happened people are people. So these people, yes, they accepted Islam, but still unfair to the very unjust people. And they did not even they came up with something called alyansa their own law, they apply to the people, and we shall establish a mahoma was asked about a man who will work as a tax collector for them.

00:21:38--> 00:21:43

tax collector, and we know that those people have put unfair taxes on people.

00:21:45--> 00:22:14

He worked with them with the government of that invading society invading force, he says us Would it be okay. He said yes, it would be okay. If you work with them, will reduce the injustice and promote justice, if you can work with them, and you will be able to reduce through your work with them. The amount of just injustice that happened to the society work

00:22:15--> 00:22:26

that mixing with the with the top, not isolating the cell from them, if it will lead to a great benefit for the society in large, go ahead and for going for it.

00:22:27--> 00:23:03

I wish that this example of something that we can reflect upon, in our society today that to open the door for so many areas that us as a community, our presence, our participation in it, in my opinion, will bring a lot of good to the society a lot of good to the world. Because we are martoma omega de la brought mercy through it that oma Allah blasted its own mother the love chosen omega de las panatela have given a leadership position in the world.

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

isolation, make you suspicious.

00:23:09--> 00:23:14

isolation, make you receptive to all kinds of labeling.

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

Because nobody knows who you are.

00:23:17--> 00:23:25

Isolation make you very easy target for the media for the public, to what to put you in the frame that they like.

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

Isolation will prevent you from building ties and bonds and bridges and relationships can protect you in the future.

00:23:37--> 00:24:07

You know, we have a simple rule everybody, I think agree on that rule that you have. You have to make your friends before you need them. That's right. You have to make your friends before you need them. Can you imagine if there is a crisis happen? The Muslim community cannot seek friends and help from people they never invest in this relationship if they never been known if they never been basically, mixing and being part of that society.

00:24:08--> 00:24:51

And that's why I do believe that isolation. It's not a very good choice for the Muslim community today. So for example, those who don't care for elections, being part of the electing process, and they don't go vote. What happened this isolation, this abandoning it, this basically withdraw from it wouldn't help the Muslim community. As a matter of fact, most of the things that you see today, and the election cycle that we are in in these days, that's why there's a lot of tackle Muslim and this election cycle, it just because Muslims vote is not very important. It means nothing.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

You know, not only the numbers, even the money, one of the brothers here in our community, invite

00:25:01--> 00:25:14

I don't know if I should go like clear, and vided, one of the people who are running for public office in Houston, and he was running for a big public office in Houston, okay.

00:25:15--> 00:25:39

And he gathered the Muslim community in his house, so they can donate, because vote and campaign need money. And that would make the society strong. One of the people who came, and one of the, and you can imagine if I invite people to my house to support a candidate, I would invite the people that a you know, you're wealthy. That's right. He's not, that's why I wasn't invited.

00:25:41--> 00:25:49

Okay, you know, but he invited the people who have money, one of them wrote a check of $23.

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

At $23, for someone running for the highest office in the city of Houston.

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

Then after that, we say we demand the Muslim community.

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

Unfortunately, unfortunately, in Islam,

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

and Islam, if you want to how Islamic system works in Islam,

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

your rights is giving to you without you demanding it.

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

That allows love,

00:26:21--> 00:26:28

that your rights comes to you, even if you don't ask for it. But in man made law

00:26:29--> 00:26:37

and Sharia, it doesn't work this way. You have to earn your right you have to work your hard to earn

00:26:38--> 00:26:46

justice, you have to work hard to earn your respect. That's how humans laws.

00:26:47--> 00:26:57

It's not like a loss of Canada out of the way he put the law. And it's a huge difference between the way of the Sharia works and the way man made law works.

00:26:58--> 00:27:48

You know, in order for you to have justice for all people died, people, you know, humanely Did you see how the black community had to go through much suffering to get the rights woman has to go through a lot of suffering, to get the rights and they still didn't get everything else, all the rights yet, at these the basic things like equal pay ins and things of that nature. So you see a lot of things that you have to struggle for. That's the nature of work here. So isolation, in my opinion for the Muslim community withdraw from it, it will not help withdrawal from being part of the economy, and effective partners in building a strong economy. The language of money is the strongest

00:27:48--> 00:28:15

language ever being part of every sector, every institution in the government, in my opinion, in the long run, it is a secure few. That's how I in my opinion, one of the way to secure your future as a community, we need more Muslims to be seen as Judge Congress, in the in the in the law enforcement in the forces and in every area in life.

00:28:16--> 00:28:34

You know, it is important to be part of the of life and isolation and withdrawal if it can be applied to one individual who cannot be part of that, like that day one brother asked me Okay, the T one to join, for example, that

00:28:35--> 00:28:57

law enforcement and I told him I think he'll be very good is a good Muslim person have a good personality, you will be good person to go to that field or someone wants to go to that political field and some other our might advise them not they are very weak, they will not be able to handle all this pressure

00:28:58--> 00:29:14

and maybe they will be lost and the loser Why will family cannot take that. So it depends. So I understand someone can withdraw but as a community and large No. We should be seen in every aspect in every area.

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

It is important to identify yourself before someone else identify you.

00:29:24--> 00:29:25

Yeah.

00:29:27--> 00:29:31

If this been said, I have also to make sure

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

that it's not my

00:29:34--> 00:29:47

ever goal is to see the Muslim community assimilate, basically, assimilate that the our community and we lose our identity.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

assimilation, assimilation, simulation is not what my goal is. Integration is my goal is to be part of the society, but you keep your identity you keep who you are.

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

The beautiful things that made you and distinguish you My point is not you know what let's drop everything and we just be have no identity as Muslim that's not

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

right.

00:30:15--> 00:30:19

Isolation can be even inside one society

00:30:21--> 00:30:37

you will see in one society one community inside them the community sometimes you see part of them isolated from the rest. And I think one of the thing that made us isolated from the rest of the community language the barrier of language make you withdraw

00:30:38--> 00:30:51

to culture have a different culture make you withdraw from the society one other thing is that to make you withdraw from the society in my opinion is close the way you dress sometimes.

00:30:53--> 00:31:02

A lot of people basically you feel he cannot be max because just the way the dress the insistence certain type of dress, as if it is something

00:31:05--> 00:31:13

Islamic and i mean by that. In Islam, we don't have so called Islamic dress,

00:31:14--> 00:32:03

a specific clothes that would call a slum. We have conditions have code for things to make it an Islamic, yes, you can wear culture clothes like me wearing today. wearing today, that's fine, no problem. But it doesn't mean that he needs to go tomorrow to his clinic. And that culture clothes. That doesn't mean that okay, because if you insist on that that can create a problem to be part of the site. That's why I've been Tamia Rahim Allah once said that it is much better to wear clothes, that it is similar to the common clothes in a non Muslim land, so they can accept from you. They don't isolate you, they don't feel you feel like a stranger

00:32:05--> 00:32:05

can be

00:32:07--> 00:32:27

one of the Messiah went to Europe. One of the scholars went to Europe, and he was winning suit. And he's a chef and student knowledge was winning suit. So someone sent him a question. He said yes, yeah holla Bartana and liberty also relies on a lot recently

00:32:30--> 00:32:36

someone sent him a piece of paper he said can you tell us how the process of him used to dress

00:32:39--> 00:32:58

I never saw him so before okay. And I consider him one of my Yanni shields as well. So, he understood immediately what the point then he said Canada so the license and Amelie vessel labasa ibj.

00:33:01--> 00:33:05

He said the process seldom used to stress the same clothes that a Buddha used to wear.

00:33:08--> 00:33:13

You got it, he said, the process I'm used to wearing the same clothes a Buddha used to wear

00:33:14--> 00:33:28

the same clothes, Yanni in another word, the guy was telling all your wedding the clothes of the kofod the Prophet was wearing the clothes of the compact Do you know? So, he was very smart in the way and immediately answer him like this.

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

And this is very true.

00:33:32--> 00:34:02

And one of the area that I think also some community should focus on at work more that it is participation with other religious communities, especially in states and places where faith community very effective like you know, when you come here to Texas, for example, and so many other states as well in America, generally speaking, religious based community are very effective in the society.

00:34:05--> 00:34:56

This issue of when do you withdraw and when you interact and which area you should be part of which area you should avoid? this area's needs, knowledge, needs, wisdom needs suburb needs, Tomasi and that's last one is so important. What's the Waze Tomasi is working collectively advising one another, watching one another, getting each other each other's back. So if I see a role model, you know, getting a little bit off the way to determine Hey, you need to watch out you need to do this. Usually getting too much in this area. Hey, you need to turn on the tone a little bit. It needs that that collective work. Hey, I think this area is completely nobody covering it. Why don't you do it?

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

Why don't you be part of it? Why don't you represent us in this area?

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

So that's how it is. These conditions in my opinion, is very, very essential. For those who want to Max, I would say them again, knowledge, wisdom, cyber patient and having people to help you work collectively, which Colossi reminded one another. And if I would add anything, it will be confidence that you need confidence in order for you to be able to mix with people and to be an influence of good rather than just being influenced by people.

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

So

00:35:39--> 00:35:53

last month after that, telling us what our Shamsa is our Bala has our wine, caffeine. And you might have seen the sun you who is you who's on addressing

00:35:56--> 00:36:05

it could be the Prophet Mohammed, any anti Mohammed law at home or it could be anti you How are

00:36:06--> 00:36:12

you the one who's reciting the Quran? The reciting of the Quran, so me and you basically

00:36:15--> 00:36:27

and you might have seen the sun when it Rao's declining to the right from their cave. Does our Wang caffee him that Aliyah mean

00:36:28--> 00:36:34

at Tessa war in Arabic language declining or climbing away.

00:36:35--> 00:36:54

declining to the right. It moving towards the right. And there is another Cara tirzah worldwide caffeine. And in that night, what a lot of it when it comes to the end of the day to go home. I'll call copper. Okay.

00:36:55--> 00:37:19

That's why we say the nail cutter we call it Makarov, why because it cut the nails. So to clear the home it cut it means cut off or it will turning away from them to the left. As some of the roadmap said if you notice turning away from the cave,

00:37:20--> 00:37:51

okay to the left, and when it Rouse it draws turning toward the right from the cave. Or I'm referring to the cave the movement and this of the sun and its relationship with the cave. He did not say from their bodies like is not like going away the right side of their body or the left side of their bodies. It is their cave and earlier I said because the sun actually did not touch their body directly.

00:37:52--> 00:38:02

The sun all only the heat and the light have come to the cave but did not go straight to their bodies. did not touch their bodies.

00:38:03--> 00:38:25

Did not lay the right the rise the rays of the sun did not lay on their bodies Why can you think of a reason? leash Carl and Kapha him that led me miss an edge Sadie why the sun the Moon The sun is always connected to the here and the verse he said to the cave not to their body it's right or left.

00:38:27--> 00:38:42

They said because of the Sun basically directed to their body with all this time it could affect their skin. Okay so it's not maybe something good for them but also if the sun

00:38:43--> 00:38:52

basically lay directly with their body it will expose them and they want to be hidden from people even if someone passed away will not know that there is someone inside

00:38:54--> 00:39:24

so the sun only comes into the cave for a little bit in the early the day. Okay. So there is heat there is fresh air so it will be a place that is not Netanya and it will not be like a grave that it's completely locked. There's no fresh air and circulation of the air that that the sun will basically assure that this place

00:39:25--> 00:39:32

that Haggerty the sun mercury come in at Angel that prevent mold, insect

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

infestations

00:39:38--> 00:39:45

things of that nature. So that's the benefit of having the sun moving like this. They

00:39:46--> 00:39:46

then

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

I'm not gonna go into this a lot. But some of the other method. If when it routes that 10 year mean it goes to the right. And when it's sunset, go to the left. So did that mean

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

That the cave open towards the north.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

And eleusis said North East

00:40:10--> 00:40:28

in order for the sun withdraws to go to the right. And when it goes the West, when it's sunset go to the left. So that means it's the cave opening, it was towards north east and Evan hasn't said just north. Anyway I was what Allah knows best, while home v federative men

00:40:30--> 00:40:43

and basically and they lay in the midst of the cave, way inside, in the middle of the cave, so nobody can see them and this is very interesting. He

00:40:44--> 00:40:47

he basically put them away

00:40:48--> 00:41:04

from people to be to notice them. Well homefree February team men, then the last month Allah said that he can mean iottie law that is one of the if not the proof, the evidence the sign of Allah,

00:41:05--> 00:41:24

he whom Allah guides, he is the rightly guided, but he whom he sends a stray for Him you will find no guiding friend wedding or a supporter

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

to lead him to the right path.

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

Then turn to the left who will he and murshida

00:41:32--> 00:41:37

it is one of our last signs referring to what mattered What do you think

00:41:39--> 00:41:51

he eliminate it La Liga Minaya Tila, what is Danica? What's that pronoun, leading to? it? Is that one of that? What referring to

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

the people of the cave?

00:42:00--> 00:42:02

What do you mean the people of the cave?

00:42:06--> 00:42:26

Oh, very good. He's saying Southern to be saying that one of the ayatollah, one of the sign of Allah, the tea guy that such young people to Islam, even though all the elders, all the leaders of their society are misguided.

00:42:27--> 00:42:53

That's in itself is that's an self sign that's in itself something miracle that's in itself something unique. That's from Attila the T guided them even though they are young, no experience, even though they are going against the Rome the culture what the leader says even with all the threat and the pressure, they still accept and held to the image.

00:42:54--> 00:42:57

Another opinion Yes.

00:43:02--> 00:43:15

preserving their body all this years, all this years, okay. And without changing happening to them. That's one of the sign of Allah. Very good. And as also that

00:43:17--> 00:43:46

one of that meaning also another meaningful read Emma said, It is one of Ayatollah that Allah guided them to find the cave and to sleep in the middle of the cave in a such way in some amazing how Allah protecting them over there. The teen No, he did not let anyone to discover them all these years, hundreds of years. Nobody discovered them. That's one of our last panel data. So

00:43:48--> 00:44:02

we've been repeating a rule and I've seen it many times now. We said any multiple opinions been given by the scholars to explain a verse they don't contradict one another. We should What?

00:44:03--> 00:44:09

combine them all together. So we said this refer to all these three areas.

00:44:10--> 00:44:55

All this from it law all this from the sign of a las panatela anniversary in the interpreter of the Brian go on details on how many of them what's their names were there what is the cave, most of the people say that the cave in Turkey today and until today they have a place in Turkey and they have a designated and people go visited and stuff like that. But there is no proof for that at all. Okay, they talked about the dog, what color what kind what breed of dog it is, you know, and all these details that is no proof from it from the Quran and Sunnah. But there is a lot of talk like this. Allah did not tell us where it is. How What's the name of the how many of them. We don't know

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

anything about these details, because of course, he's not interested in documenting history.

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

For the sake of history of this story, the Quran is a book of guidance. Okay? And that's the main reason for it. They may yeah de la yes Allah

00:45:13--> 00:45:16

if you amazed by how these young people became Muslims

00:45:18--> 00:45:20

and Allah guided them versus all their people

00:45:21--> 00:45:32

remember, always try to think about the story and the profits or some time when they receive

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

So the same thing, how come the profit or sell them

00:45:37--> 00:45:58

more most of the people became Muslims and the term of the process are more young men, like the people of the cave, not the leaders of the price of their people. There's a lot of similarity in the story. Okay, so here Allah say, not necessarily the smartest the brightest one did not became Muslim.

00:46:00--> 00:46:11

And I lost my dad I want to make a very interesting fact here. That whoever Allah guide he is the guided one. So the guidance come from me who from Allah

00:46:12--> 00:46:19

that's why when the cafardo No, one mana tobacco in Medina humara de Luna, bad dry.

00:46:20--> 00:46:27

We see the people who follow you are not the brightest among us. Not the smartest one.

00:46:28--> 00:46:36

Why always the the people who bad dry either their opinion, they're not smart. They're not very good talker. They're not the the leader of the society.

00:46:38--> 00:47:29

That's why when I was sylviane, the king of Rome asked him who is most of Muhammad's followers. He said the weekend the poor, he said, and that's how all the profits used to be most of the profits and all the profits that followers were the weak and the poor normalcy the richest, the smartest, the No, a lot want to make this clear to Mohammed sallallahu sallam, because earlier, Al Quran told us how the Prophet wanna kill himself over the people of Makkah, not accepting Islam, La La Cava enough sakala la kuno. Many killing yourself over their cover. So here in the verse want to tell Mohammed Salim remind him and everyone, there is a very important fact, which is whoever Allah guide

00:47:29--> 00:48:13

is the guided one. So those young people don't be surprised, a lot guided them. And they are the truly guided one. Because guidance are not major by anything else, other than being committed to the truth, not by your wealth, not by your tribe, not by your lineage, not by the level of your education, not by the the culture, not by the skin color, not by the what most people believe in know, that guidance is to submit yourself to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's why the guidance because it is from Allah, it is a gift from Allah. It's a favor from Allah.

00:48:16--> 00:48:18

And that's lit us as a Muslim today.

00:48:20--> 00:48:26

If we know that, that make us always asking Allah to guide us.

00:48:27--> 00:48:46

Because if you seek guidance from other than Allah, Allah telling you, voluntarily, Allah who will de murshida if you seek someone to guide you through the hard time, through the calamities, through the fitting through the test, other than Allah, you will never find someone to guide you, to support you.

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

That's why you always attach your heart to almost

00:48:55--> 00:49:18

so many times when we plan, you know, I tend sometimes these meetings about or conversation about how are we going to counter the message of, you know, the islamophobe? And how are we going to do this and do that, you know, when we forget about one thing that is so important, which is why are we planning all those, we make sure that Allah We ask Allah to guide us to do the right thing.

00:49:19--> 00:49:25

We make sure that we have the topo and the photo and the relationship with the last one that are to allow us to succeed.

00:49:28--> 00:49:44

Absolutely. Or may yet because Allah Daya from Allah to open your heart, because you might find the reason you might know the way you might know the road. But the point here is not knowing the point is willing.

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

The point is that you commit to it knows how long but you're still doing it. You know, it's the wrong thing, but you still doing it. You know, I know all this but remember one of the guys here in our community. I went to collect from him that

00:50:03--> 00:50:13

Child support from his work for his wife. Remember arafat's send me first year I came to America my first year. You know, he used to let me run around

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

just kidding.

00:50:16--> 00:50:30

He asked me to help him to get collect this money for that sister. So first experience for can imagine them fresh out of the boat as they say, okay, so I go to this guy and he has a bar

00:50:32--> 00:51:01

serve alcohol. So he said, I get you something drink. I said No, thank you. So don't worry, hello. Water said nothing, I don't want anything. Then he said, Where are you from? From Egypt. Oh, my partner is Arab too. He said is like you and me and him going straight to hell. While law he that what he told me and him we're going straight to hell

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

will lie when he said that I got a goose bump.

00:51:09--> 00:51:15

We don't praise you. And we sell alcohol, we drink alcohol. You know, we have all about things that we do.

00:51:16--> 00:51:22

He knows is not an aliquot not lack of knowledge. But it is the hedaya from Allah.

00:51:23--> 00:51:41

It's the guidance from Allah Subhana dad, that to open your heart and giving you the determination to do that's fine. You know what, it's fair. fairness comes to show you the right and the wrong. furnace is to give you access to knowledge.

00:51:43--> 00:51:48

But it is absolutely a favor is to help you and to at

00:51:50--> 00:51:59

that's why and he Daya it's an absolute favor from Allah. And Allah the wire going astray. It's absolute justice.

00:52:01--> 00:52:09

Because I like give you absolutely an equal opportunity, give you the give you the knowledge gives you the sign, show you the two ways.

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

And he left you for yourself.

00:52:16--> 00:52:28

But the other one was like guided he showed him the way he left him for self. But also he favored. He give him the support. He gives him that the determination

00:52:30--> 00:52:38

he opened his heart. So you might ask why would a lot open the heart of this one and favor this one over that one, because that one show

00:52:39--> 00:52:43

a las panatela that I need Europe I love you on

00:52:45--> 00:52:47

the other one, his arrogance that I don't care for you.

00:52:49--> 00:52:52

I can do to my own salani him for himself.

00:52:53--> 00:53:04

And I tell you that Allah subhanaw taala said son of Adam, you walk to me I run to you. You never find someone walked to Allah and Allah walk away from him. It's not exist.

00:53:07--> 00:53:18

That's why it is and he Daya it is too kind and he dies a lot open your heart, or he die that Allah show you the way showing you the way it's all humans are equal.

00:53:19--> 00:53:23

But opening the heart that's a favorite from our last panel to Allah, He give it to you.

00:53:25--> 00:53:35

And Allah said, Lentini de la jolla mercy, they're the one who choose to be in his own, and he doesn't care for Allah, you will never find someone to support him.

00:53:37--> 00:53:48

You will never find support that lets you realize one interesting fact about the story that the elders and the leaders of this village and whoever similar to them,

00:53:49--> 00:53:52

all their possessions, all their wealth,

00:53:53--> 00:54:00

all their weapons, all their armies will not support them in the dunya on the

00:54:01--> 00:54:02

two will not benefit them.

00:54:03--> 00:54:20

And that's in itself an indication of giving a glad tiding to the Muslims, that they will be the victorious in the end of the day. And the people of the calf. They were the Victorians they lived in the past and everybody else vanished from the face of the earth.

00:54:24--> 00:54:40

As amazing way of putting it and also give the same indication to Mohammed Salam with his own people. That Dr. Mohammed, don't worry. Nobody gonna support them in the end of the day they will be the loser and you will prevail.

00:54:44--> 00:54:54

Also, this verse shows you that Allah subhanaw taala has wills and whatever he wills happen

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

it's not like some sex in Islam. It caught in mortality.

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

They said that a lot doesn't well anything.

00:55:04--> 00:55:05

A lot of No Well,

00:55:06--> 00:55:15

people do their own things according to their own well, and Allah has nothing to do with it. Allah never welded never aware of it.

00:55:17--> 00:55:27

The deny the will of Allah uncom poder de la, Mama she Etta. That's why when Arabi

00:55:28--> 00:55:54

bird when it came to a bustle in in bustle there is a very famous zide avid ascetic worshipper his butt he is the head of the Mata Zilla from this deviant sect. His name is Amira niobate. So this Arabi show so he saw his a bad he heard about how a southern Yes, let me ask him, he said, Yeah, Chef,

00:55:55--> 00:56:05

de la Holly, pray for me, said What happened? He said I came to your city with my donkey and somebody stole my donkey.

00:56:06--> 00:56:19

cerca de la Nero Delhi hamari. pray to Allah that Allah give me my donkey back. So I'm going to be obeyed, said Allah hamara in a mahratta who

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

were untalented exotic

00:56:24--> 00:56:29

he said Yara his donkey was stolen from him and you never will do that.

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

He didn't welled up

00:56:33--> 00:56:41

okay. So bring it back to him. Then that Bedouin with the fitness paralyzed that this could my method

00:56:43--> 00:56:46

he said what an evil there are you just made it?

00:56:48--> 00:56:52

He said I'm afraid that that God that you pray for

00:56:53--> 00:56:55

who mined donkey was a stolen

00:56:57--> 00:57:07

without his well he and somebody overpower God's well and he stole my donkey. If he will want to return it back to me he couldn't because as no well

00:57:09--> 00:57:27

if this is the case of Allah, God has no oil at all. And now he wants to return back my donkey. He couldn't because he has no well he has no power to do anything in the world. said I don't want you to get on here. Cut off Shanna who you really do. The half Allah, Allah

00:57:31--> 00:57:39

that's our last segment Masha una Illa Allah, everything you will it already welded by a Lost Planet Allah. That's why you were able to do it.

00:57:51--> 00:58:02

Yoni, I just want to end with with one point. It is so interesting that he said in the beginning of the verse, that he can deny Attila it is from a lot sigh.

00:58:03--> 00:58:04

Allah has so many signs

00:58:06--> 00:58:29

have so many evidence. Some of them we see it with our own eyes, some of them with heat, we hear about them like this story. But other thing that we see, can you give me example of something that we see from Allah as evidence on the universe, or in the world, like the creation of the heavens and the earth and the sun and the moon, the stars, the way he created all these signs,

00:58:31--> 00:58:44

early method, the fact that Amelia there is a beautiful meaning here that a lot connect between the concept of hedaya guidance and the concept of noticing a lot signs and evidence on the world.

00:58:45--> 00:59:27

And hedaya happen the guidance happen. When you look at this evidence in the world. When you look around you and whatever around you remind you have a law, that one of the reason for you to be guided, that you contemplate you look at the creation of almost panel data. You look at the sign of Allah subhanaw taala that he giving you every day that you pass by it every day, you live it every day you experience every day, we hear about it in the Quran, you hear about it in the soul of the prophets of Allah. All these are evidence and sign from Allah watching it noticing it lead to the Hadith that's why Allah have put these two together. And Allah subhana wa tada

00:59:28--> 00:59:36

in many verses, he Connect by between the two in Effie is T one. t.

00:59:38--> 00:59:39

v one

00:59:41--> 00:59:44

wonderful Killa t Tajiri. If you

00:59:46--> 00:59:46

found

00:59:52--> 00:59:53

long enough

00:59:57--> 00:59:57

in

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

between all

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

abound among

Steffi

and the alteration of the light and the day

01:00:31--> 01:00:32

and the great

happen, thinking and connecting things together, so they can arrive to the concept of that he died. And fortunately, I did not finish what I was planning to do,

01:01:20--> 01:01:25

but I will try to make it much faster inshallah. Next time
