make this throughout the day, it doesn't actually require anything doesn't require you to have to do to face the Qibla but just to say Allah is enough, even when good things happen to you, you say to Allah subhanaw taala This is enough. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness and for his mercy. We pray that everything we have done from last Wednesday to this Wednesday has been written in our good books, and that we are written from amongst the most Salin our lawmakers consistent in our salah and make us consistent in our good actions. Allah make us amongst those who you forgive that which they have done knowingly and that which they have done unknowingly. And Allah make us

00:04:35--> 00:04:47

amongst those who when we miss make mistakes that we turn to you and we return and ask for your forgiveness. La ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah in economy Nevada me a Sierra Madre camara de la

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

so hamdulillah we are continuing the is that we covered from last week I'm going to move right in I'm not going to do a revision from last week. I assume that we finished which profit last week

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Who'd we finished who that is around and Allah subhanaw taala doesn't do a recap. We started in the 40s. And immediately in Surah huid, he just keeps reading through the story of who God is Sarah, and at the end of ayah, number 59, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts to say the final currents that took place to who so Who can tell me how was How were the people of who'd Ali Salam? How were they destroyed? Can anyone tell me what what was the event that took place to them?

00:05:29--> 00:05:52

They forgot after a very good point. And I couldn't tell who said that. But well said they forgot Akira. It was sherek at its highest level, because we said the people of New holiday Suriname they committed shear, right? They started to associate partners. And for us here today, none of us worships a statue. But we will make light worldly sacrifices, we will make sacrifices.

00:05:53--> 00:06:04

And that will cut into the law of Allah. I mean, give you a small example. We believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. We say we love him. And we even try to do good things, right? That's a belief we say this belief.

00:06:05--> 00:06:46

And we were talking about this on the way here. Now it's getting colder. So I want you to try to take a small example. This is maybe a little bit of an adult example, you see that it's getting colder now. Right? So naturally, you would need to wear more clothes. Just a small example of what you can say, Oh, I don't do [???]. You can say that. I believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and nothing else affects but let's see what real action is. So it's getting colder, naturally, you dress with more clothes, as a college student, female or male, when it's 47 degrees outside or it's even colder? Does it affect their dress? Not at all. I look at them, and I'm cold, right? I'm freezing.

00:06:46--> 00:07:27

And like how I think to myself, I would die in Jihad first, these guys would just be tromping around and just running around, right? They don't get cold at all. The next level though, is if you went up to them and said, Aren't you cold? They'll say yes. But the yaqeen the feeling that someone's gonna look at me and I look good. This year clean is stronger. So I'm willing to take the call. If you were now to put this into into a vessel of shidduch, we say we don't believe in anyone except Allah subhanaw taala, right. We come to class we learn we do our best. But when it comes to actually making the effort, getting up and praying more, making a sacrifice, going against what you see, it

00:07:27--> 00:08:05

takes a little bit more than just saying I believe in Allah. They not only believe in looking a certain way and wearing small clothes, but even when it's cold, and it's difficult to act on the commandments of their knifes. So they worship them, their their desire, their desire to want to be seen in a certain way. When they're seen in this way. Do they flinch? Look, when you go out in a job, isn't it tough? It's tough. It's difficult, it's awkward. But they those who dress without clothing, they have your clean. And I want you to have the same type of your clean though, when we go out looking like this or maybe wearing a certain type of clothing. Or even when someone makes an

00:08:06--> 00:08:38

inappropriate joke, and you kind of pull away from it because you're Muslim. It's hard for us. But do we have the same yaqeen so from new holiday salons time the European was that they were trying to believe in a lot but she came in after that who that is sometimes times people she took the next level. It wasn't that they were worshipping idols alone. Who did the people of who would end today's profit slowly. Artists Adam, who did they worship, they worship the rich? Who did we make the analogy of last week between

00:08:39--> 00:09:17

between the people of the Prophet hood and what did we say today? It's like the people who live in Beverly Hills, right? We don't they don't worship idols. They worship people who are affluent. the more money you have, the bigger your yacht, the bigger that you're you're looked up to so they are yucky in there started to effect. They didn't start worshipping people by bowing their heads. But they started to act different. They started to indulge, they started to forget about a lot. And just like the brother said, they forgot about a lot. And they eventually forgot about which day brother asherah they forgot about meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala. So to this, Allah subhanho wa Taala said,

00:09:17--> 00:10:00

a huge wind came and destroyed all of them. And we just take the small examples of the most advanced civilizations. Let's take Japan just for a moment. Japan has has the most advanced they have a car that when you drive it home, it flips up and it becomes a door becomes part of your house. Right? They have Honda made robotic legs. There's so many things we can discuss. For eight seconds. Right? This was about two years ago, only eight seconds. Allah subhanaw taala shook Japan and all the technology was gone. Now imagine not eight seconds, but imagine a wind that blew through the people of who the artists Saddam's time and it blew till there was nothing

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

Left we said there were two people, two places in the Quran surah who the and surah

00:10:06--> 00:10:13

off, right, what is off means it means sand dunes. They used to live there and what's left of them now?

00:10:14--> 00:10:51

Nothing. So Allah subhanaw taala says something here and I wish that you can write this down and remember it was to God and the people of odd jaha do they rejected, be it, be it or be him they rejected the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I want you today to look for signs while also Rudra terbaru amaura who leaves a burden on him? And they disobeyed the member messengers. So Allah sent them a sign, they disobeyed the messengers and they reject following them. It's one thing to say, I don't like you, but I'm still gonna follow you. Right? I don't like this thing. But Allah told me to do it. So I'm going to do it.

00:10:52--> 00:11:06

And eventually they turn to every commandment that was wrong. They didn't just disobey Allah. Allah subhanaw taala said, obey the messengers. They said, No, we're not going to be the messengers. We're only going to obey the rich. So Allah subhanaw taala said, Allah in

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

Borden

00:11:11--> 00:11:57

comi, who would Allah said away with them, he destroyed them. If you go to the sand dunes of the off today, what is left there? Nothing. Nobody lives there. There is no existence, but their homes were massive. their homes were carved out of mountains. So now we move to the next step. And I just like to read through the is together. And today we're going to highlight what we spoke about last week. We're trying to study the characteristics of the Prophet so that we can attach to their attitude and I pray that that's what's displayed up there. The attitude of the prophets was, as a messenger, they had the most entitlement to say I am an employee of Allah. But how did they act like an employee or

00:11:57--> 00:12:26

like a servant? servant, when we act towards Allah subhanaw taala, we usually ask for an explanation. My boss came to me and said, look with Sam, I need you to do X, Y and Z. I will say so why, why do I need to do this? What is this do? What is this? Do? We start to behave with Allah subhanaw taala in the same fashion that Allah is our boss, and we are employees, when you shift the paradox and you say, a loss of what Allah created me, Allah, Allah,

00:12:27--> 00:13:12

Allah, Allah is the one who created me from nothing, he would know better. So when it comes to how to make wufu whether I can, whether I'm allowed to cover my body this way or not, it comes to a commandment did Allah say or not. So this is the attitude that I want you to pick up that we are the servants and willing slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And around us, we are meant to obey the commandments of Allah and not reject the messengers. So today we start in Iran, number 61, where the story of the people of the mood now if you can geographically quickly take a few notes. The mood is 380 kilometers north of Medina. There's something very important about this approximately 380

00:13:12--> 00:13:33

kilometers north of Medina, number two, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah salat wa salam he visited this place. Number three, so it's 380 miles north of, of Medina, that means this prophet was what type of Prophet was, was he Why Why isn't he in the Bible or in the Torah?

00:13:34--> 00:14:16

Because he's Audible, he's an aura prophet. And this brings us to a very strong point of the Quran because Allah keeps telling us that these are the stories of the people of the past. The Bible came to its people, the Christians, the Torah before that came to its people. Mohammed Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to his people or to all of mankind, all of mankind. So in this you will find stories of Arab prophets, non Arab prophets, you will also find a message for the fact that in 2012, we all mixed, there could be a Christian who comes to our class, it could be a Jew who comes to our class, Arabs come to the non Arabs, Muhammad Rasulullah was the final messenger 380

00:14:16--> 00:14:25

kilometers north, he visited the city and last but not least, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I really intend maybe one day we will do this. We did this once.

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

in Irvine, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you are to visit these areas, does anyone know what you're supposed to do when you visit areas that have been destroyed? Anyone know? First thing is yes, you should pass through it. Very good. You should pass through it immediately. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was passing through an area where the people of the mood were destroyed. He tucked his head and he ran through this he quickly moved through this place. What is the only other thing that you could do in a place like this? stop and ask for forgiveness. One of the places that you should try to end

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

It's called the era where you go and visit different places, when you can actually go take your children as opposed to Disneyland, wait for a moment in their life and say, You know what, Allah created a nation here to have them make a project, download some pictures, make a little folder, and they're like, yes, these are how their homes used to look, and then go visit these places. If Allah subhanaw taala wills and we finish this course you have a basic understanding of these different places within Allahu taala. Maybe we take a trip, and we go and see these places we make Ramadan, and then we travel the world to see as a Lost Planet. Allah says four times in the Quran, Guru see

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

rue, fill out the blue cave. Thank

00:15:41--> 00:16:21

you bantul Mukesh dB, see the earth, how Allah subhanho wa Taala meets civilizations that were so advanced, but eventually there was nothing left of them. These four points I pray that you have, and that we realize when we pass through a place that is that is destroyed, that has been cursed by Allah subhanaw taala. We tuck our head and go. And today the same way, when you pass through a place that's inappropriate, when you pass through an area maybe where the billboards are overwhelming. Maybe you're going to take a conference in Las Vegas for whatever reason you need to go. you tuck your head and you know that even though the Azov of Allah has not come to this place yet, when

00:16:21--> 00:17:06

people gather and they say things like, what happens here stays here, who are you cutting out of the picture? Allah subhanaw taala took your head and move through these places quickly. We started number 61 for the people of the mood that were in the Arabian Peninsula, and to them came a prophet name, Slavia what Isla de moda for whom Swan and to the people of the mood we sent their brother slaley ha, why use the word brother here? We discussed this last week. Any time Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to the nation and the people he says a home but anytime he talks about slowly talking to these people about shidduch Allah doesn't use the word a home. He doesn't use the word brother

00:17:06--> 00:17:52

because he was there brother living with them, but was not their brother in law layout foamiran Buddha law Hama Lancome in Isla de Rome. So outcome solly. I want you to know a little bit about him. So ali ali Salam was essentially for what it's worth. He was the Obama of his time. He was set up to be the next really think about it. Well spoken, very articulate, very educated, and the people actually were prepping the people of the mood before he said these words. Were saying this is going to be our new leader. Go see this guy. Yes, we can. Because Swanee is educated comes from a good family. He's wealthy, and he kind of came up from the bottom of the barrel. So Sally had a Saddam

00:17:52--> 00:18:37

was being prepped to take over the community and be the new leader of the people of the mood. The people of the mood just like their ancestors, just like the people of who died a sudden were very wealthy. They were very large. Physically, we talked about their size, they were enormous till when, if you see their the structures of their homes, they had 60 to 100 foot ceilings, they were massive creatures. Some people say there were 40 arm lengths long, a lot of but we leave it at the fact that they were enormous. In this, Swati this well, very beautiful, good looking, educated, young man came and said malah coming in. don't worship anything except Allah subhanho wa Taala do not love do not

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

give authority do not worship anything except Allah who are only shangkun mina

00:18:44--> 00:19:31

and Allah subhanaw taala is telling us through the prophet SAW Allah that they were given a chance don't worship anyone except Allah. And then he uses the word was the American Khun fi have first ofuro to LA just like new holiday, Sam, just like who de la Sam. The first words that this young man comes out into the parliament and he says, Look, everyone, before you announce me as your new leader, I want to tell you, Marla, Camila hierro there is no one to worship except Allah. And don't worry about your past. Like a therapist, like a psychologist, he starts to quell their guilt and their fear. And he says for sulfuryl Suma to boo two things that he added. And this I wish for you

00:19:31--> 00:19:43

to write down and have this on the on your fingertips like this. What did before we write down the four stages of doba What did new holiday salon tell his people about Toba? focal to selfie Rubicon

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

in the who kana Guevara make Toba Allah will sorted out friends if you think about from New Halley's alarms up to who that is a lunchtime and up to Salim Elisa lunchtime. We're talking about 3000 years the message is exactly the same

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

Human beings you're going to miss prayer human beings you're going to make mistakes. All you have to do is keep alive in the picture. How do you keep Allah subhanaw taala in the picture was still filled, keep making is still keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness get into a fight with your spouse sister for the last for the law, make a mistake stuff that a lot a lot I know what I'm doing is wrong, but I don't know any other way. When you include Allah subhanaw taala in the picture you turn the statement mala Camila enviro on its head. He didn't say a famous Allah. He didn't say to soccer, he said bring a lot in the picture. When you bring other people or creatures or idols

00:20:42--> 00:21:27

into the picture, you will start making progress. And now he added something for the first time, Suma to boo LA. And once you have made mistakes and ask is the foreign said a lot. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, that make doba so today we're going to make a differentiation between instill. And Toba. Is this far is saying Allah subhanaw taala I'm sorry, I did it. But I'm sorry. I'm looking for a way out. doba is a you know, in alcohol anonymous, they have that 12 step program. doba is that 12 step program but it's four steps. We did it on the second class. Let's quickly run through it again. What is the first step of truth over to Allah subhanho wa Taala as defined to us in Surah 25 I am number

00:21:27--> 00:21:45

61 to the end, what are the four main stages of Toba? First thing and moms can explain this to us first when slaley la Salam is open openly talking to his assembly and saying Look guys, before I become your leader, I want you to make it stiffer. Moms what's the first thing a child needs to do to their mistake?

00:21:47--> 00:22:28

They need to accept their Miss acknowledge your mistake. What I did was wrong. We tend to we tend to make the mistake and say a stuff for a while with a smirk on our face, right? Yeah, man, you're really dumb stuff. You know, we smirk on our face. We make the and we're like yeah, let's gonna, as if Allah subhanaw taala doesn't know so we, we smile on our face in such a way that Allah doesn't know. Number one acknowledge the mistake number two after you have acknowledged the mistake, make true still make a step far to turn to Allah. In a way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when you make a dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. look as if you are you should cry, you should cry to

00:22:28--> 00:23:09

Allah subhanaw taala and if you can't cry, my father's what should you do? You should make a face you should make the appearance as if you can cry. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said one tier, one tier in the path of Allah asking for forgiveness. One tear will quench all the all the fire of hell. One tear, asking a lot for forgiveness. I sat with a professor and I only take a minute of a tangent. And he said this is why religion is wrong. Because you cry. He said crying is just an emotional it's it is basically a synaptic process. Your brain secretes some hormones. And just like in church, you feel good. And I said no. But in church, you sing songs in Doha, where are

00:23:09--> 00:23:34

you alone, quiet by yourself, self reflecting. And you say to Allah, I beg you the way I begged my mom when I was a kid for that toy in the store, I beg you for your mercy. Number two, ask Allah for forgiveness by crying and begging to him. Number three, anyone remember after you have acknowledged the mistake made the mistake? What is the third component of truth tomato, boo LA, anyone can remember. Pardon.

00:23:36--> 00:24:12

intention, your intention to replace it with a good deed number three is to replace it with a good deed. If I have set a follow word and I'm telling you these are, this is my intent of the class. If you have a problem in cursing, if you have a problem in backbiting, when you do it, say a lie, replace it with a good deed. There are so many other words to use. Instead of the words we use, we use subpattern la hamdulillah. Number three, replace it with a good deed number four, make intention I will not I will not take this mistake again. I will if it's if it's looking at something inappropriate on TV a lot. I'm not going to watch this show anymore. If it's backbiting I'm not

00:24:12--> 00:24:47

going to hang out with this group anymore. If you go to the same gathering and your friends are the same, even the elders and they talk about the same exact thing. You know that ammo you know that guy he used to he did this. But you know I saw him praying in the mustard. You know what I saw him doing last week Allah right. So if you constantly surround yourself with that group, they're going to talk about the same thing. Remove yourself, say Allah. This is my fourth stage of Toba until I'm strong enough to tell my friend Hey, keep your mouth shut, bro. I don't want to hear it. I have been with friends. I have been with friends. And I started saying something along with me just came out.

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

They're like, shut up as what? Can I keep your mouth shut? I don't want to hear about anyone else. strong words. Right. But that was the best way to put me back in. I was like, Yeah, I think I'm backbiting I didn't click until you're strong enough to be

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

in that in that group, leave it alone. Suma to either acknowledge your mistake, beg for forgiveness, replace it with a good deed and make intention and put up the barriers not to do it again. So we have two forms, please say a stellar feudal law, a stellar sort of law, a self feudal law hit a beam in Buddhism Buddha to Buddha in Arabi. Mooji and Allah subhanaw taala uses one of his names at the end of this so sorry Hello Salaam is in the open gathering. He says indeed a lot is Mujib, if you can write this one word of Allah. The Prophet stories come to us so that they can remind us about Allah subhanho wa Taala we said this the very first day, we said that Allah is unlimited, and he's

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

independent. So how do we know about Allah unless someone comes and tells us so the private side came and said Indeed Allah is mujeeb

00:25:55--> 00:26:37

anyone can define Mujib all responsive unless always there even a mother after a while when the child is has you know has diarrhea after the fourth diaper change the mom will kind of go off a lot is a level never feel tired. A level never feel relentless. Oh man again same fudger again, bro. You're gonna say sorry again. Not Allah subhana wa tada you missed it yesterday that was yesterday. Today my beloved today the one I nurtured for so many years so many months in the womb of your mother Don't worry about it again try again try again was the funeral and then they the people for the first time so now we're seeing the paradigm shift the conversation shifts immediately the people

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

have solid in the assembly so Mooji by wants you to know as a name of Allah. The people heard this and they said all Paul slaley who are the Uncle delphina

00:26:51--> 00:26:52

module one

00:26:55--> 00:27:19

they said oh sorry. And they called him in a in a in a respectful fashion. Oh, slowly we thought of you. Module One means to please hopes you are our Savior. And now you became a molana Oh man, here we go. Kabbalah haha. Now you became this molvi this religious guy Kabbalah has that we can't have this situation. We can't turn to you. And we didn't expect this from you. Then

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

Buddha Buddha

00:27:25--> 00:28:05

una in Allah see shocking me matadero una la de marieb. So the people finally shifted their peridots. They looked at him, they look, they said, you know what we thought you were going to lead us. But now that you're talking this religious talk, and you're not following status quo, and that's what I want to get to you. The story is going to be the same one. So guess what he called to worshipping one Lord, they rejected him. Now. Guess what? You don't know the story. What do you think they called him? Crazy. And then they called him possessed and then they call them and it's kind of like the same script. Have you ever met someone who they all go to UC Irvine? Or they all go

00:28:05--> 00:28:22

to UCLA? Right? Northern California. And guys, when you meet them, they all have the same at the end of every sentence. What do they say? Muhammad Ali say, bro? How's it going, bro? Right. So think about this. Every generation with 1000s of years apart is saying the same exact, verbatim

00:28:24--> 00:29:10

retaliations towards the prophet who is their professor who is the professor teaching them this dialogue. shape on it is he believes himself saying, Man salia we thought he was gonna make it. He's one crazy guy. He's possessed. He's crazy. The claim from the prophets was exactly the same. First of all law how Oakley rune obey Allah. Be conscious and aware of Allah and follow the messengers. And they all had the same exact rhetoric. And that rhetoric was You're crazy. So upon this, they said, Are you going to ask us to leave the or gudi at the worship the servitude, of all of those that our forefathers did? And we do that today? When someone comes and says brother, this is

00:29:10--> 00:29:53

cultural? This is mixed. Our Deen has been mixed in culture. You'll say what my grandfather's going to hell. I would like to respond, bro. You sound like every single rejecting nation before you. You didn't read the script. shavon was going to mention these words. And our response was La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, we didn't take offense. So they said, We thought good Have you saw a module one tabula rasa we thought that you were going to be intelligent, but you turned out to be some religious fanatic, and we thought that you would not tell us to worship anything other than what has been going on already. So So Ali, Ali salam, the story broadens. He realizes that he's in a

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

gathering in this gathering is not going to believe in what he's saying. So he says color Tony

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Tune in to Allah benina Robbie

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Danny Minho.

00:30:10--> 00:30:49

Young Sunni, Mina, LA. Now think about this so young man sitting in a big audience and he really believes in Allah subhana wa Tada. And this you could tell it's adorable it to some extent, he didn't turn over and say, Oh man, every nation before me has rejected their prophet. He said, No, no, no, no. And this is the first prophet to do that. He goes, What if I bring you a sign from Allah? What if I bring you mean Allah, some sign some way that you could realize that Allah does love you, and it'll be okay. He didn't threaten them with the other Ababa law. He didn't say that you would be crushed. He said, What if I bring you a, a sign? So the people said, call us go bring

00:30:49--> 00:31:25

us a sign, bring us a sign. And then he said, I have to be glad to Allah. And this is where you're going to see a shift in their dialogue. You know what they told prophets, Allah, they said, No, you don't bring the sign. We're going to tell you what we want. Give us a day to figure it out. So they went and they all gathered back in there things and they're like, okay, we don't believe in Saudi anyway. And he's a little kooky anyway, so let's get something that's going to benefit us anyway. So if it works out, it's good for us. And if it doesn't work out, it was crazy in the beginning. So not only did they say we want a sign from Allah, not only did we say Did they say you know what, we

00:31:25--> 00:32:02

don't want you to bring it. We're going to custom order. We're going to custom order our sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when this happens, let's take a quick parallel with Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the people of Somalia are saying give us a day we'll figure it out two or three days. What did the courage say to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about signs from Allah. What did they say? You remember from MCing times? If Malak if the angel came out of the sky and came to you and said he's a prophet, then we still wouldn't believe in you. So a day passes two days pass. They come back to Saudi had a son. There are huge, massive people. They come up to

00:32:02--> 00:32:41

him they're like, okay, we figured it out. We want a camel. We want we don't want just any camel. Remember a camel is like a Rolls Royce. The white camel or the red camel is not just like a Corolla, it's, it's the most expensive thing that you could have was this huge camel. So they're like, we want a Rolls Royce. And we want this Rolls Royce to be enormous. We want it not only to be a camel that's abnormally large that gives milk. Oh yeah. It has to come out pregnant. Oh, by the way, it should come from between two rocks. What were they doing? They were mocking Sally and insulin. Remember when Phil around looked at Moosa and goes, Oh, I get it. You're Robbie, Robbie musawah

00:32:41--> 00:33:15

Harun, and he turns over to qarun and to Harmon and what does he say? Yeah, ha. Manu make me a huge tower. And I'm going to climb up this tower and be like Yo, Robbie musawah. Harun What's good? How you doing? Right? He was mocking the Prophet. And in this way they did. But what did solly Harrison do? He went jarabe has he now for the wall. This is and he made the law and eventually came to them a camel. And as our time drifts here, we keep reading. So he said, For millions who don't even allow him to honestly do, will you then disobey me if I bring this sign that you're asking this deliberation?

00:33:17--> 00:33:21

For that, does he do in any era? See? And

00:33:22--> 00:33:34

would it not increase you and he's having this conversation open ended with them? And he's saying to them, so would you increase in loss after you reject this sign though Allah is going to be upset. So I pause for one second.

00:33:36--> 00:34:12

You're thinking camel, you're thinking pregnant camel gives milk, it does all of these things. I want you to hold this on one side. And on the other side, think about every sign that Allah has given us. Think about every sign that Allah subhanaw taala gives us and then see what they give it. Remember, in 2001, when the tsunami hit Indonesia, what did nightline What did Ted Koppel do a whole special on anyone remember when the tsunamis flattened all of those area? What did they do a whole special and they did an entire special? You had Ted Koppel sitting there saying an interesting phenomenon only the masajid the mosques were not destroyed. Would you consider that assign 100,000

00:34:12--> 00:34:31

people die in a tsunami and the only buildings with like 50 buildings that were standing were masajid. And you would sit there and say, Oh, it's a coincidence. Same way. So take that on one side. leave that there for a second. So an iron number 64 he says while follow me has he now gone to long Ilan.

00:34:32--> 00:35:00

All my people this is it. And out through the middle of a cavern. There was like a cavern in their place. It was a very mountainous rocky place that was north of Medina, out from the middle of the rock came in enormous abnormally large milk giving pregnant red camel and glowed. And they saw it they were they were astonished. So now the sign of a law has come. A sign that buildings that were destroyed.

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

For 1000s of miles, entire cities were moved 500 miles during the tsunami. Let's take this as an example. The camel comes out, and they're like, wow. So this enormous it to give you a small idea every day the camel would give milk and it gave enough milk to feed the entire town. But then Allah subhanaw taala said, when you asked for me, I'm going to ask back from you. So what did what happened to the camel? They said one day sorry, Holly Sam said one day the camel will drink water. And one day you you all the rest of the animals can drink water. So for one whole day, saw the Elisa ROM would the camera would come it would drink it stuff. And for that whole day, what did the people

00:35:45--> 00:36:24

see? They didn't see the sign of Allah because their heart was connected to dunya What did they see? A man skies drinking our water. What are we supposed to do? Right? They saw a decrease in dounia. They saw immediate connection. I want you to draw the parallel way beyond the camel. Allah asked us to pray allows us to go to Juma right at the hospital many times doctor the manager will come over and say you know what, if you work on Fridays from these hours will give you overtime. And I'm like, are you guys like you have shaytan and speed dial that's Juma time, but it will come to you very clearly. Oh yeah, you'll get more money if you work this time. If you take this time off, you know

00:36:24--> 00:36:50

it's not a big deal but Fridays between this time we need you. Allah subhanho wa Taala asked us to come and do a sign his sign is Juma. Juma is something we pray and it is a dress rehearsal that I want you to know this statement in and out what is Juma as what was the camel? It's a sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Does anyone know what Juma actually is? What is it? In general every Friday what happens?

00:36:51--> 00:37:31

It is a gathering who gives a hookah Allah subhana wa Tada. Every Friday the people of Jelena will be called Yeah, hello Jana, the people will come and the people will say remember in the dunya we used to sit and there will be couches in the front row ever been to the masjid where they have those little sitting chairs. Only the people in the front it's like on the ground but you can lean on it. Those will have reserved seats in the front. The people will say I remember Gemma but I don't remember those tears and the angels will tell them these are the reserved for the people who used to sit in the front. Unusual Juma. Now yes, it's beautiful. It's wonderful Juma is a day to prepare us

00:37:31--> 00:37:39

to meet and hear Allah subhanaw taala. So if you fall asleep in Jehovah, just be careful, right? Try to practice Keep it up Keep

00:37:40--> 00:38:20

the same way Juma is a sign of a lot of the camel was a sign of a law. But on paper we see decrease I can't work this is I have to go to gym I have to deal with parking. On paper, it's a decrease. But in real life, Allah subhanaw taala is allowing that camel to eat because that camel is a sign of Allah subhanaw taala I hope that you see the direct correlation between these two things. That camel drank for one day their animals would drink for the next day. They then saw a decrease in the water not in their in their finance or their is they just said man the water is less. They didn't make the connection Allah made brought a camel from between rocks, Allah will make it better. They didn't

00:38:20--> 00:38:52

make this connection. So eventually it was nine of them. Am I correct? nine of them. So one of them came in said you know what? That camera would taste mighty good. I wonder how much meat will come out of that how much how many Philemon young can we have out of that bad boy. So one of them came up and it was this enormous and they waited inside or they said I'm told his people while at Mizzou and do not touch it be sued in Do not touch this camel guys, you have come up to the line the brink.

00:38:53--> 00:39:34

And if you touch it for Allah subhanaw taala will grab your other party and on the other side of your sword. Once it touches this is a great punishment. The same way if anyone in this room has had a religious experience where you heard a holocaust you read Hold on You either went home raw, you had a car accident that almost missed and you in your heart set at that moment. A lot. I know you're there. I guarantee a lot is there where you are on a motorcycle and you slide 150 feet I've been there and you're like what, and you just get up and walk away. It's like this was completely a lot. After that point. You've seen a sign of Allah. If you don't turn to Allah then and then you still

00:39:34--> 00:39:41

get mixed up in these small discussions of what's halaal and what's Haram. But you cut a lot out of the picture by

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

that there is an album that is very close. So it only took one busted friend, my young brothers and young sisters. It only took one person to come up with the idea. And they were sitting together and one of them said, bro, you think you can knock that down? You think you knock down the camel right?

00:40:00--> 00:40:23

Juma we come up with these genius ideas. I remember being a teenager bro. You think if I hit the shopping cart, it'll flip over. Right? Right. When you when you're driving through the, you know what I bet you we can knock down this camel. So one of them said to the other one, and I think I could knock it down. You stand in front of it and that friend might not even know what's going on because Okay, I stand in front of it. And then another one comes and another one comes in. They're like, well, he said it so we could do it.

00:40:25--> 00:41:06

seven nine of them came one of them the narrations now explained to us. One of them came from behind and cut it's four legs. So the shin of the camel it cut it, then killed forward. The other ones stuck it on the head, the other one cut its neck, and eventually they hamstrung the camel. It's one thing to kill something. It's another thing to bring it home like a trophy. So they tied its legs together, hung it upside down, got it like a fish and paraded it through the town. Where did this camel come from? We asked for it. So now put yourself there. Oh Allah, I pray for a child or life you give me a child, it's assigned to me and I will become pious. I will pray I will follow your

00:41:06--> 00:41:41

commandments. But as the child starts to grow, you become it's a beautiful child from Allah. You become more arrogant. You begin to dress them up, you begin to show them off. They say Mommy, I want to learn karate. No, no, no, we have to go and do these other things. Allah gave you something that you asked for a laugh. I get this thing. young brothers having to have a laugh. I can just get engaged to this sister a lot further in the masjid every day. I will make Salah I will read Quran I will do as you will. See, sir, I don't know what exactly you make dua for but whatever it is that you make dua for and Allah subhanaw taala gives it to you at that point. Why do we turn it around?

00:41:41--> 00:42:19

Oh Allah make me beautiful, then Allah makes you beautiful, but then you use the beauty other than what allows you to do the hamstrung it. They hung it upside down. They paraded it through the city. And what did he say to them? He said you have three days. Enjoy yourself, sit in your houses sit in your homes, and they did what any nation who believed they were the boss, who believed they were financially able who are capable. They went into their mountain homes because they had those huge mountainous structures. And they said, okay, hit us with a flood. We're way up high here hit us with some with some wind, we're inside a mountain. how bad could it get? What are you going to do? Shake

00:42:19--> 00:42:55

the earth Oogie Boogie salia we've heard it all. We've heard it all sorry, bring it on. For three days they sat and on the third day they left that saw they had a song. They said So what happened? camels dead. We're okay. And Allah subhanaw taala as he makes promises, on the morning of the fourth day, so three days completely passed. Allah didn't take haste. They were destroyed. And Allah subhanaw taala left them in their own ruins as if there was nothing there. If we can make a direct connection that Allah subhanaw taala has sent us a greater sign than the camel.

00:42:56--> 00:43:39

He sent a book to us that is actually his speech. Allah created the camel. Allah made the ark. Allah subhanho wa Taala sainthood ra Solomon solid la salam, he sent sheath Ali salam, but he never gave his word to any community. And now that he's given this word, what do we have to say to Allah subhanho? wa Taala? What can we say to him and say Allah, this is not a miracle. We're just in the construction of what ILA a hall home. That word that Allah subhanaw taala knows when to use the word brethren and when to remove it. What do we have to say to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to close out the story here, because I didn't want to spend an enormous amount of time Allah spent eight or nine

00:43:39--> 00:43:50

is we have Surah Hood, which is Ayah number 62 ayah number 68. And you will also find it in Surah, 26 and 2726, which is Surah.

00:43:52--> 00:44:37

Nevermind, okay. Why would you need to know this random information about surah numbers and names in Surah, 26 and 27, between 40 and 45, you will see the story again, of Saudi Ali Salatu was Salam. In this story we see for the first time Allah subhanho wa Taala sent not only a messenger and not only assign, but he also gave them a chance I asked you on this evening as we start to come towards the end of the year. And we don't know how many weeks that we have left. At what point what story? What will I need to do or what will happen in your life to make that change. We are saying I don't pray I'm going to pray. I don't cover I'm going to cover for young men. I know that what I look at is

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

wrong. Let's take any discussion that we have out there. I know that what I'm looking at is incorrect. Allah has given me the sign Allah has shown me National Geographic and Discovery Channel and how my eye works. But I don't use it for Allah subhanaw taala When will I make a commitment? Hadler from a state of making one mistake to a state of not making that mistake? I asked you I implore you

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

To learn the stories of Prophet hood and prophet slaughter, and take them as examples for yourself. All that is cleaning periods from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We didn't rush today. But today we stayed focused on one specific topic. And that was the fact that Allah sent a camel sent a sign. And you say, but why doesn't a lesson design? Why didn't Allah subhanaw taala sent a book that was perfectly intact? Why didn't Allah subhanho wa Taala send us the sign of all of the ayat around us Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said before the day of judgment before our era, the people of silence and who and who that is not forgot about, look at the signs of the Day of Judgment. Look at the

00:45:40--> 00:46:08

signs that the frequency of earthquakes, the occurrence of natural disasters, New York, which has never faced a storm, I'm still I just came back last week and again from Baltimore. It was Canada than Baltimore. So I got to see both within a two weeks period, people still today $2 million homes don't have electricity. It's interesting. We talk about the people of who then salia how they built huge homes. I know personal family members, huge, huge homes, no electricity.

00:46:09--> 00:46:48

And it's how we store food. My cousin's called me and they were we were talking about there was a big freezer full of food. And they were saying we just have to cook the food as far as as it differently to keep cooking it. But there's no fire to cook it with. So all that we had stored here was taken away like this. And food is gone. I wish I could be telling you a story of the old Oh yeah, some in 1940 there was a 900 mile storm. No, you will your kids will be seeing this. So now we ask ourselves at what point will it take to make that commitment? Today be isn't Allahu taala. I asked you to make an area and make it still far after this point. I won't ask you next week's class

00:46:48--> 00:47:07

I want you to say it on your own say throughout the speech they throughout the day, as though feudal law, a stove. A stove through the law itself or the law. Make it frequent on your tongue. I will close with one thing because we will not be able to transition from this story. You do know what stories are coming up next, who's coming up next.

00:47:08--> 00:47:36

We're going to come to Ibrahima a Sonam. And you're not going to hear a lot about spirituality. He was a go getter. Ibrahim Ali Salam was the activist we said three components let's do you must take this away. What are the three components to a complete believer you have to have this you have to know the four stages of doba and the three components of the complete believer number one what was the first narration to receive the last a lot is some first revelation was if God which signifies what

00:47:37--> 00:48:23

knowledge read, the first thing Allah wanted from us was not for us to believe. First was Look around you look around your surroundings. Does it make sense that people are acting this way that nations are killing each other have knowledge? That's fair enough. Number two, what was the second revelation? Oh, Rosie, Darla in New Orleans de la Antonio de la to recite the Quran throughout the night. Who could see Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam who could see him at night. Once you're a Muslim male and mudassar 73 and 74 were revealed how many eyes were revealed in the Quran? Six Six plus 511 is that made up more than five lines? How long did Allah want him to pray five lines worth of Quran

00:48:23--> 00:48:42

Mr. Who half of the night or the whole night? How would with repeating it over and over again? component number two spirituality have knowledge and you have to whether you consider yourself the most Elissa Noah Gemma and you are the greatest one on the sooner know that you are lacking spirituality does

00:48:43--> 00:49:03

that the arena of the self let's put it that way right. So knowledge could uninstall not always and forever but the realm of the soul does keep getting close to Allah. That is the second component after I have sought knowledge after I pray at night. What is the Yeah, you have Muslim men coming later? illa kalila Yeah, you have

00:49:05--> 00:49:06

to

00:49:07--> 00:49:53

stand up. Number three component is activism. become active feed the poor go out for the rally, sign the petition if you feel inclined islamically go and go to the if you feel like the interfaith can become interfaith to go interfaith go enter people into the faith that Allah has enjoined upon us knowledge, spirituality and activism. If we don't have these components, Ibrahim Ali Salam is the pillar of activism. He didn't sit around. He was seven years old when he challenged when he spoke to his dad who was carving the idols. We'll get to a story but I want you to realize that if between now in the next two weeks, I want to see you make eska Subhana Allah He will be humbly he Subhana

00:49:53--> 00:49:57

Allah He loves him. Can you just repeat this one Subhana Allah He

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

will be humbly he

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Subhana Allah Allah Allah.

00:50:03--> 00:50:44

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is narrated in the seventh volume of Buhari, whoever says subhana wa he will be handy 100 times in a day that is between you and Allah, you could do this between the commercials of your TV show. I don't recommend it. But you could do it 100 times if that person did enough sin to fulfill the ocean, Allah subhanaw taala would forgive it. We will not see the benefit in the profits after this because so far the prophets haven't asked for any action. They've asked mala comida in Ohio, they've asked for us to acknowledge a lot. Ebro Ibrahim Ali said I'm really sorry, Salam mood when we get to moosari some yoga, you won't come after that.

00:50:44--> 00:51:23

You can be like, yeah, the first few. The first few classes were good, I can't take this. Now. He's actually talking we talked about music, which she thought is enough, but we didn't say anything about it. musalla some not so much into the instruments into breaking them. So we we will get there. And when we get to that point, I want you to be prepared. We cannot prepare ourself until we do the proper does here. So Hannah law will be handy. He Subhana Allah Hillel day 100 times in a day. How many times would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guaranteed Jenna he met Allah Allah gave him gifts weaker narration said the angels descended to earth after he passed to wash his body. How

00:51:23--> 00:52:04

many times did he make us up for Law Day 70 times I encourage you at least 100 if you can get into these much I won't ask you next week. But I'll see it on your faces. You can smell La La theme you can see it on the faces. whether someone's sick It has nothing to do what whether you use Mac or if you use Maybelline it doesn't have anything to do with that. It has to do with the piece that Allah subhanaw taala gives you your homework is a few is these few I read them understand them. But when you get to the word happy he Napa to LA and you see this was the camel, look up the tsunami look up the things that happened around us. There are so many signs that I'm not sure where to start from

00:52:04--> 00:52:46

physical to economic, even Allah subhanho wa Taala said, When fascia when lewdness and perverseness becomes rampant in the society, this is an ayah in the Quran. diseases that never existed will come to exist. I won't get graphic, certain STDs though certain STDs. There are literally creatures, small creatures, they are called crabs. Check how long they existed. That's all I'm asking. From a medical standpoint, how long we have physicians, how long have they been around? That's all I'm going to ask you to do. If that's not a sign from Allah subhanaw taala keep looking that it can mean ayatullah and leave here asking Allah subhanaw taala to make you His servant, not to become his

00:52:46--> 00:53:09

employee, whether the crew law whatever all that is cleaning period from Allah, raise your hands or don't raise your hands between you and your Creator. Allah still hears you, and whether you make dua or don't Allah still hears you Allahumma salli wa sallim ala Nabina Muhammad Allahumma suddenly what suddenly mala Nabina Muhammad Allahumma salli wa sallim ala Nabina Muhammad

So try to make dua consistently for your brothers and sisters on the east coast. There's a lot going on there plus around the world, but they're in they're in the same situation you are. So when kids overseas don't

00:54:31--> 00:54:56

have food, they haven't had food for a long time. We're American, right? So it's not like we we complain to Allah that we're dying without food. We complain to a lot alarm wearing a three piece suit. It's cold, right? We're the only nation that has this problem that will be dressed up but we're cold. So May Allah make dua for them.
