salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
100 a lot of blood amin Salatu, Salam Baraka Nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira to my mother, welcome back to the science of the hour, the science of the Day of Judgment, I'm not to say it was shut out. If you remember from last week, where we discussed, we will start talking about the different categories of the science of the Day of Judgment. Now, of course, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, he did not make this classification in that fashion. So it wasn't from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to call this you know, these are minor signs, major signs and so on and said, The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he mentioned that these
are the signs that will be towards the end of this life. And the LMR. Later on, they kind of tried to classify them and make them easy for us to memorize and understand and, you know, keep kind of
checking these signs so that they give two major categories. One of them is called the minor signs, and the others are called the major science. And from the main from the minor size, science dilemma, classify them into two sub categories, science that that already happened. And these things that happen, the southern half is also can be classified to two more sub categories. And this, they would be signed that happened and want to repeat again, that will happen once, and they will not repeat again. But others would have happened in the past, and perhaps are already happening today, and will continue happening until the actual establishment of the Day of Judgment. And then there's the other
category, signs have not happened yet. And they start appearing in the future in shallow dialogue, we shall see that some signs that LMR recently, even some other man scholars, they recently, they said that these are signs They are waiting for them to happen. But as we speak today, they're already happening. So even just in the past maybe 2050 years, perhaps some of the LMR. They never thought that these sounds will happen in any recent time. But here we are. 34 years later, when they wrote in their books, that these are signs still yet to happen. We already dealing with them today, after such such a very short time. And that tells us you know, what, how soon and how quick, the
sounds of the adjustment artists are being established and happening, and how quick perhaps maybe the end of time will will be it will be started. And with the amount they talked about the major difference between major signs and the minor signs, some of the classic explanations that they said that the minor signs are just signs that not necessarily out of the ordinary, which means they usually happen. But in the way that they're going to happen as a sign of day of judgment will be a little bit unique. As for the month, or the major signs, these are something out of the ordinary. So when we talk about the arrival of the journal, the return of rissalah, his salam, and the German
Jews, the massive number of these people and so forth, as it are signs, these are signs of concern out of the ordinary. Therefore they were classified as major signs also the sun coming from, from the west, rising from the west, so some not ordinary scientists. So therefore, it's classified as a major sign. But many of the things that we're going to mention to show tonight will be of these minor signs because not out of the ordinary, but they will be unique to certain times. So let's see, what are these signs a shallow tattoo? But before that, the position of the believer? What should what should the position of the believer be from the signs of the Day of Judgment? You as a Muslim?
What is your measure? What is your position from that? How should you view these signs? What would you say?
Now, you know, there are going to be a lot of signs happening around you. Things that you will be able to recognize center are going to be out of the ordinary to you as a Muslim, what should be your position from that?
Let me ask this question, a different perspective. Should you even be concerned?
To the extent that you should really be counting these signs? Should you basically make a list and start counting? Okay, this sun came out the sun didn't come out this icon should really be concerned with that, or what what should the position be?
But should you should you count these signs? Should you be observant and keep looking or there's a new sign? Here's a new sign. Here's a new what should the position be? Yes.
So you should believe in that but don't have to worry about counting them. Right. Okay. Sisters, yes.
So counting defeats the purpose. But why?
So you know that it's coming closer when you start counting the signs but if you're not making any any kind of move, to improve that means that defeats the purpose. The science should be motivation was a motivation, right? Yes. I think if you're a die, you should use that to bring people closer but I don't think you should use that for your personal gain.
So nothing that's for your personal gain. But actually to remind the people, that what you're saying, yes.
So when you start thinking of these signs as part of the conspiracy theory, and if that hour is coming closer or not, and so on, it becomes a major source of distraction from doing your part in life. And that's to worship Allah subhana wa tada and promoting good and forbidding evil. Why would you guys say? So let's see, you know, the concern itself to concern yourself for the Day of Judgment is something you can tell. But why? Because it's one of the one of the six articles of faith because one of the six articles of belief and faith that we believe in the Day of Judgment, so you are going to believe in the day of judgment and you are obliged to believe in the Day of Judgment, and the
loss of Hanna what Allah made it clear that the time of the day of judgment is concealed. And it's only him subhana wa Taala, who would know exactly when this they will start, but the position of the believer as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was asked.
He was asked clearly about the Day of Judgment by a Bedouin, the prophets of Allah. So Allah must speak about the judgment. And then suddenly, suddenly,
one of those veterans was very concerned about their judgment, to the extent that he said the other sort of law matters. When is it going to be established? Why do you think why do you think the man asked the practice of law salon matassa? When is it going to be established around the shadow of the Heidi, the commentary on the Hadith, they said, when the prophet SAW someone speaking about the Day of Judgment, and the hour, he was speaking and given so many things, so many signs, to the extent that the Sahaba the companions themselves, they thought it's happening, maybe some sometime very close to them,
and they thought it was going to happen during their lifetime. That's why they were very concerned, but the Sahaba of the law that they were taught, they were taught and trained not to ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam these questions, but this Bedouin coming from the desert, he didn't have that etiquette. So he immediately he bursted with that question Jada sort of La matassa. The prophets Allah Sam says, it will surely come to pass, the professor said it's coming for sure there is no doubt about it. However, he asked him to focus on what really matters to him the most color What are you mad at? What have you prepared for?
Means Don't worry, don't don't kind of concern yourself about When is it going to happen? Exactly. And what time what day what hour? Don't concern yourself with that because that's not going to help much. But what you need to concern yourself with is mother either tell her, what have you prepared? You know for that day when it when it comes. And like we mentioned earlier, that for every individual, your tiama your day of judgment established when you die. So that is your style, establishing your day of judgment. Now the actual establishing of the hour does to Allah subhanho wa Taala. to to to bring about without Of course it discloses this to anybody. The man when he asked
when the Prophet salla salami asked him what have you prepared for it? He says Colorado sort of law I haven't prepared I have not prepared much in the way of prayer and good work here in Colorado. So Allah Allah tala McCarthy, Nikita Saladino, Wallachia and I haven't prepared much of good deeds and salah and so on, while I can you have a la hora Sula. But I truly love Allah and Allah His Messenger, which means you know, I'm not that type of person who engaged so much in salah and Roberto because maybe my life my life circumstances forced me to focus on this and that and so so I get distracted. So I don't say that I brought so much to the day of judgment in terms of a ba ba
Well, I can he says but if I if you asked me about my best of my best good D that I have. I'm so proud of it says what I can do humble ah Sula. I genuinely and truly love Allah and the messenger. So Lawson
now we think that this is something insignificant. But if you truly love Allah and His messenger and Allah subhanho wa Taala love you for that. That's a great testimony from your Creator subhana wa tada that you are genuine, you are real, and you are sincere. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to him, you will be with those who love me on the day of judgment or loss on our data will congregate you what has wrecked you with the people that you love. So this is a this is actually this is one of those signs for us that if you're going to be resurrected with the people you love, means we can you're going to be gathered with the people whom you loved and this world
better watch who's the one that has a stake in your heart. You need to watch you love where do you give that love? To whom do you give that a you need to give it to those who really deserve it? So that when you're resurrected, then handler brimming with the right with the right people. Instead of you know putting your heart and celebrities and players and this and that and so on. You put it on Rasul Allah, his Salah Sam and Gambia and cider handles a hell of a lot random, hopefully that when you're resurrected, you will be directly with those people when they lay terracotta. So we keep in mind that it's not about getting concerned as much as
Really just preparing for that what happens once once you prepare to handle a lot of blindness? Okay, so based on this, should that concern be a source of motivation or the motivation?
I asked this question on Facebook. And I received, I received tons of responses from the people about what the what do these signs of judgment do to you? Do they motivate you? Or do you start becoming more depressed right now, for instance, you traveled to the Muslim land. And you see many of the signs of the development of profits. As I mentioned, such as, you know, the the kind of the common practice of area, the Mullah Xena, Musina and fornication becomes very common, and very, very, even even people, you could see it in the streets, even these days. So eventually, this becoming very common, drinking alcohol and Muslim land becomes very common. The practice of many,
many sins is becoming also very common. So when you see all these signs, and now also, we know that large capital cottard, the massive killing is also becoming very common people, they count massacres, not just a casualties these days. So we're talking about people dying in hundreds, every single day, sometimes in one in one year and one incident at a time. So based on that, when you go and you hear the news, you see these things happening in front of you, you hear the news every now and then, what should be the your reflection as a believer, should you be motivated? Or should that be a source of the motivation to you? What would you guys do? Would that motivate you to do good? or
start now kind of withdrawing and minding your own business? Why should the position of the believer
let's make it more practical for us living here in the West, we live in the West, we're not living in Egypt, to see what's going on in that situation for the Muslims that are in Egypt, we're now living in Syria, where you see all these incidents of killing and so on happening in Syria, we're not living and all rich Muslim countries that have less than one so much work that so many people are completely distracted with that, to recognize the atrocities of what's happening, and other countries and so on. So we're not like this here living in the West? What should that be to you as a Muslim?
As a man
motivated to do what
took to become better? That's it.
As a, let me ask the question right now to the next level, as a Muslim, as a believer, should you should you try to force some of these signs to basically come out like kind of expedite this day of judgment to come to come by?
Should you? Is it even possible?
Is that even possible, and the Christian actually theology, some, some denominations, and some people, they do believe that they should force the hand of God. So for example, they believe that Jesus is not going to come back there is not going to return. Unless there are certain events and incidents happens in the world, such as the establishment of the State of Israel, the establishment of the Temple of Solomon, and his time in Jerusalem, and so on. So that's what we hear, we see all these, all that tension and Philistine about the establishment and the settlers are trying to get into the area of the mesial, axon, so forth, so but because of that, because of that, so some of
them they say that their their philosophy is that they, it's motivation for them, to force the hand of God, like, kind of you establish this, you expedite the return of Jesus. So they do everything possible. And unfortunately, in the process, they violate the rights of so many people, like the Palestinians, for instance, or even the people who live in America, like taking so much money and will be just donated over there just for the sake of establishing that that kind of concept, to force the hand of God to expedite the Day of Judgment, per se. So the Muslims, should that be a concern for them? means if you're not that building, lofty building is a sign of the Day of
Judgment. Should I become an engineer and an expert at that, so I can make it faster so you can get over with this? No, you can't do this. But as an individual, you should be motivated to do better and do more good deeds should do good, do good, more of good deeds, good deeds. And I want to show you right now some of these signs, and let's see shallow data, what should the position of the believer be afterward? Now the solar cell dimension 100 Buhari, alphabet medical theologian, he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said,
Carlos Arroyo de la Samadhi alphabet Malik sciton bainer. He said count six things that will happen before the establishment of the hour which means at the beginning of the day of judgment, number one, he says Carla Moti, Martina bisola send him his death. So the Prophet says my death is one of those signs that a day of judgment will be established. Number two, the conquest of Jerusalem
for Tibetans, Magnus, the conquest of Jerusalem, and that happens in the temple who have a copy of the law, but then it was recaptured by the Crusader
And then was returned back by whom? So I had dinner. And then it was taken by the colonial powers, the British. And then I was given basically the hand, you know, with Israelis, for instance. So what's going to happen next? Or what? How should we understand these signs, you're going to come to that and Sean details later. Also, the prophet SAW some speaking about mass death or massive death, that happens amongst the people. Just as when she died in large numbers during an epidemic, meaning people will die, it seems to be like whether it's a biological warfare, or that some sort of disease will start erupting due to some new perhaps maybe things happening in the world.
Again, maybe because of the industry
and the world that we're living in today, contaminations at different levels along wanna something that's going to happen that's going to cause massive death among the people. Number four, the profits of a sudden says abundance of wealth to such an extent that if a person were to be given 100 dinars means 100 Golden dinars, like saying, if you'll be given 1000s of dollars, you will still not be satisfied. Back in the days when people used to receive you know, like, for example, even in America, let's not to talk too far, here. And even in America, just even in America, when people used to get when people used to get, you know,
their salaries, they were sometimes in few dollars. So you get $5. And $5 is worth like saying $5,000. Today, for instance. So you go on your buying you buy a whole lunch, maybe with a few pennies, and that would be it. Today, if someone is given a salary of maybe 3000 $4,000, what do they say?
Is that enough?
No, it's not enough. They're looking for what? six figures.
And then when you get into the six figure salary, what do people think of Now, that's not enough, you want to join the Millionaire Club.
And when you join the Millionaire Club, is not sufficient enough to become now of the top billionaires. So eventually, it's always like that even those who are getting so much wealth, it seems that will never be satisfied with the amount of work that are getting and that is what is happening today. Many people are given Mashallah great amount of money, but it's not sufficient for them is not satisfactory to them. And number five, the professor said, the general anarchy and bloodshed. And he said that specifically, you know, out of household will be spared from from it. And that is the term the professor, someone who used the anass, booted out of means it's going to
become some somehow in the Arab land in the Middle East. Now, people, they will start reflecting on what's going on today. So suddenly, what they call the Arab Spring, which turned to be an Arab nightmare. Yeah. And what happened in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and many, many other other other countries. So what is it is that what the professor was talking about are some of the signs of the day of judgment or not. And finally, the prophet SAW Some said that, then
the life of peace, basically, you will have a peace treaty between you. And the Romans. And the Romans, usually, as is basically the UN, our modern time will be kind of like the western Europeans or European general. And he says a lot, a lot of ceremony, you have that agreement with us, for the Europeans in general, which eventually, after some time, they will break that treaty with you. And there will be some sort of like a massive war happening is that in time, or maybe the time, the end of time, according to the, also the Bible, there are coinciding events that would happen, you know, between the Muslim events and the Christian events to these to these final days. Only Allah knows
how they look like, but the position of the believer, should you expedite these signs and these events of the day of judgment, the answer is definitely no. Okay? Should you then prevent them from happening?
What do you think? azima?
If you can specific when we were talking about anarchy and atrocities, some of you might say, well, this is what a lot of Canada wants to happen. And this is what the Prophet he predicted that will happen. So that would be my new own business. I let things happen the way they happen, anarchy, bloodshed, killing, I shouldn't be participate in that. So just stay away from that. No, you should still enjoin good and forbid evil, because the last panel that went illogical was to happen to be to make this as the majors at the big sign for the Day of Judgment, then it's going to happen. It doesn't have to do with with your with your own actions. So now again, to summarize what exactly we
should look for and the sound of the of judgment, number one,
some of the signs have been accurately determined, which means we know for sure that they happen, give me a sign that almost like all the other men agree that this is a true sign that already happened. And it has been accurately determined and decided on that this is the day of judgment, what is the origin
the death of the Prophet Mohammed, Salah, Salah, and even then all Muslims agree that Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam existed and he was born and he died at that particular time in history. So they agree now
Whether they believe in him as a messenger or not, that's a different story. But they believe in the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah, as you know, he was born and lived and preached and then eventually invited people to Allah subhanho wa Taala and died. So this is a sign that being accurately determined and there are other signs, we're going to talk about them later inshallah some of these signs have not been accurately determined, like what?
And that's when we would come when the controversy began. The things that have been accurately determined, these are the signs that happened, and usually don't repeat. They don't repeat. So they've been already decided on and they agreed on them and they don't repeat. Then we have signs that not yet accurate determine which means that they are always in disagreement whether that happened or not like what these are, in many cases that the Phaeton and, for instance, for example, when the prophets Allah Sam said that before the day of judgment,
the non Muslim nations will gather around the Muslim nation, so eventually there will be kind of source of everybody's taking part from the Muslim ummah. Now, can you say that this happened at anytime, recently?
What recently we say as World War Two, for example, we're one on one and even two. So the world war one, for instance, when the Muslim Ummah was under almost could say, one banner, then suddenly, it just got divided. But even some, some events back in back in the history of Islam, events like this also happened in the same fashion. So the amount of the time they spoke about it, according to their time, for instance, you see the allowable under this particular dollar amount under this, when they bring this issue as one of the sons of the Day of Judgment, they bring the events of Al Andalus as their sign of the Day of Judgment. So because the Muslims, they lost the power, and then all the
Christian nations in Europe, they started gathering around them. And finally they were expelled back in the 1600s. So this for them, that was one of the signs of the Day of Judgment. But since then, until today, we have about 400 500 years almost that means might not necessarily be the actual site. Which brings us to the third point here. When it comes to the events of the Phaeton the events of the fittest, we mean by that tribulations, whether it's the monarchies, bloodshed, wherever signs of profits, as I mentioned, will be kind of massive and killing and so on. The Roma. Their position from these signs is not to finalize any of these Fitton as the actual, the actual sun of the Day of
Judgment, but it is one of them. Because when the Prophet says they will be fitten, there'll be tribulations there will be, you know, a lot of great journey events that would cause bloodshed and so on. He mentioned that but he never said that would be the one or only one event he mentioned as multiple silvercloud family. So those are the signs that we keep saying, you know that they keep repeating. So it's not accurate to determine that this is the day and this is the actual event of the Day of Judgment. Now, the last point here, the believer should not protect enforcing just like we said, the existence of any of these signs, like for example, people, many Muslims when he asked
him, What do you think where where is the hope for the Muslim Ummah today? They always say Alma de Charlottetown
so what are you going to do until then? So we'll just make a lot of that's it. No, that's not the right thing to do. That's not the right thing to do. And we shall see that even as Maddie when we come to talk about Maddie even and Maddie. As a suitable Gemma, there are some alumni who denied actually, they denied the Maddie as being one of the sons of the Day of Judgment. And some of the ultimate like very prominent names, such as Mohammed Rashid Rahim Allah tala, even in some of the recent times, the the Mufti of Tata
Mohamad. Also, they said that this is not this is one of the signs so the fact that to say that this is unreal moto canarium, which Manali like there's unanimous agreement that's not true. Some of these signs are controversial and we're going to talk about the Michelle dollar separately when the line as the origin now Sharla Finally, we talked about three signs tonight, three cents for the last few minutes inshallah of the session, some of these signs that that happened, and they want to repeat, they will not repeat number one, the advent of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the advent of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah said massage rhodiola
dynasty Bukhari. He said, kala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam birth to an hour Sokka to the Messenger of Allah, Allah semi says I was sent, you know the sun, which means close to the time of the day of Germany, the hour just like this. Again, the moment they say this sign from the Prophet, Salah Salem means in terms of the height of the two fingers, they're very close, or the actual proximity between the two fingers themselves, they're attached, which means it just right there. And we mentioned the previous session, that of course, relative to the time of the humanity. So when you compare the time of the humanity or maybe the life on this earth
That means the time between the prophet SAW some until the actual establishes of the day of judgment will be very, very near compared to those days and those years that actually people spent here. So the prophets Allah Sam, he made that his arrival as a messenger of Allah is one of these signs of the Day of Judgment. This happened, it has been accurately determined and confirmed. The second and the prophet SAW some spoke about he said that about his death, as it had his alphabet Matic which you mentioned earlier, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he told him, it says, sit and beignet, the PSA, count these, count these six things between now and the establishment of the hour.
And the first in the process. As I mentioned, he said, my death, which means when the professor Sam dies, that means that nothing is almost left except the establishment of the Day of Judgment. But how much time between then and until that establishment of the of judgment. Allahu taala Anam still, when you compare that to the actual long history of humanity, that will be actually a very short period of time. The third point, the third event or sign of the Day of Judgment, the split of the moon, the splitting of the moon, the prophet of Allah subhana wa addresses and solar tokamak terrazza to one Shaka Atacama, tell about the PSA, one shuttle comma.
Now that he said The hour has come near, and the moon has split into what you already do, while kulu serum muslimah. And if they see a miracle, they're turned away, and they say it's a passing magic is just magic. Now the image that you see over here, the image that you see over here is a commonly Of course, it's a confirmed image from you know, from NASA being in the US
as an evidence that there was some sort of like a rift and on the moon, however, some Muslim
speakers and and maybe some scholars, they use this as an evidence to, to prove that the moon was truly split. And even NASA confirmed that according to the scholars, by using this, this this image itself, I personally, I actually went because I want to search this picture to see if it's true or not that NASA confirmed that. But of course, they denied. They say we have no evidence whatsoever that the moon was fully split in that fashion. That's what they say, of course. So the use of this picture to say it did split. I mean, it's sometimes it really becomes contradictory to the statement and the authority of the people of NASA, regardless of the moon, using this picture as an evidence
is problematic for the Muslims. So my suggestion for the Muslims stop using this picture as an evidence to promote the moon was split as a sign of the judgment. However, did it happen? Of course it did. For a Muslim for a believer, those who believe that our last panel today who the one who could the earth and the heavens and the moon, they believe that if Allah subhana wa Taala would work for the moon to be to split, he will make it happen subhanahu wa taala and the law says that under Quranic terrazza, when shuttle comma that the hour has come near and the moon has split into, but the controversy even among Muslim scholars regarding the meaning of that is that it does is this is
speaking about an event that happened at the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, or is this as speaking about an event that is going to happen in the future as a sign of the Day of Judgment. Now, many of Muslim scholars and the many and the majority of a sudden the majority of them of a sudden they say that the ayah is speaking about an event that actually happened at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an evidence to that I need to be Mr. Trudeau, the Ultron Khalid Abdullah was rude and say Muslim hate Abdullah was rude. And so a Muslim or the Allahu Allahu Allah, is that the Prophet sort of lost himself, he reported that he said that
it didn't happen. And he was the person who witnessed that. The same had it was reported by multiple Sahaba, such as the loving outbursts of anger and others. However, these were young, when this event would happen in Mecca. So where they get the news from you got they got the Anima, they say most likely will be from the same source, that's Abdullah Masood, and it's not considered a motivated Hadith. But it's definitely it's an authentic hadith that this this happened. The controversy now would be okay, if this sign did happen at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and it is something that, you know, this is now a natural phenomenon. You're talking about the moon it's full.
And then suddenly, it's split, because of the majority describe the split that each piece went on one side of the valley, in Mecca. So you could see one side on the one mountain and the other one on the other mountain. So it's split. And that's what he said. He reported that on the Allahu Allahu Allah. So how come and that's the controversial of many of the philosopher philosophers, even Muslim philosophers actually, and some of the deviant sects in history of Islam. They defied this as being one of the signs that happened during the
Time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they defined as saying, if this is true, how come then this was never reported, this was never reported by the great Pirates of the Arabian Peninsula because of an event like this would happen, you should be speaking about all over the place. But no one had one one happened to say anything about it, also to say if this happened, and it happened to be, you know, a natural phenomena, the moon is not exclusive to the Arabian Peninsula. People have to see it somewhere else. So why no one ever reported that. And it's only been reported in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They give their answers to these questions. So
the first thing they said first and the same in regard to the defiance of the philosopher's regarding the possibility or impossibility of the spirit of the moon, they say, as Muslims if you truly believe that this is the Quran from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the word of Allah azza wa jal, then whatever Allah subhanaw taala says is the truth, there is no doubt about it. So the first thing that you argue about is the confirmation of faith. Meaning First of all, that is Allah subhanho wa Taala is the creator. And he created these, these planets and stars and so on, he's able to pan out with Allah to manipulate the stars in a way that will defies all laws of physics. If you
truly believe in that, you believe that Allah subhanaw taala is able to manipulate all these laws of physics because it's his creation. So Connaughton second element they say is that, that incident in itself, that innocent in itself happened during the night. And when it happened during the night, that means back then most people at night, what would they be doing? Sleeping, because usually the people that sleep at what time is Mr.
One, this one's the sunset that said they go to sleep, and even the Muslims. And that's why I thought Russia, for them was a big struggle. For us, South Russia is the beginning of the day,
is just your day barely starts, but back then it was the end of everything. So therefore, it's very, very hard. So if it happened, it would happen during the night. So how many people would would see that?
Maybe not so many. But some people might say so what's the point then?
What is the point then that some people that just few people would say that would see that? Well, this few people would see that. And they will go out and report these things. Because some of these events even happened at the time was the other ambia. And not so many people actually, they have seen this, and they will report this. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala, about those who witness that, what did they say? What a guru must say, and if they see a miracle, they turn away, and they say this is only magic. So when they see it, they would say this is optical illusion. He's kind of he's kind of fooling us with the science. So even though they saw the moon, but because of
their defiance, to believe in the messenger Muhammad, Allah salam, they saw it, but they denied it. And it was reported that some of the people of Mecca, they sent, because in the morning, when when people start talking about it, and everybody was asleep. So the majority did not see that. So they started like a huge argument. And they start asking, waiting for the caravans to come and arrive in the city of Mecca. Why is that? Because they know caravans usually travel at night under the light of the moon. So they wanted to know if this happened. And according to the remember that hydro himolla data, there were some reports actually from the people of Makkah that indeed, it did happen,
that some of the travelers, they reported that they started actually the moon split for them again, it was like a scary event, but they could not make any sense of it, they could not really integrate make any sense of it. Some people might say But hold on a second, if the moon is split, what happened to the natural phenomenon, such as you know, the the balance of the earth and the orbits and the waves and all that stuff. Again, remember, Allah subhanho wa Taala he had put all these laws of physics and he subhana wa Taala can manipulate all these laws of physics as well in a manner that of course, you know, and it's it's divine. And Allah subhana wa tada he is the one who's able to
control all these things.
The bottom line when it comes to the issue of Chicago common the majority of the amount of uncertainty with Gemma, they believe that this is a sign that happened at the time of the Prophet Mohammed Salatu was Salam Ali, so have a likeable Metro reported that and it was mentioned and authentic. A student of rasulillah is sort of what allows family.
Some godmother say it's actually the future sign of the Day of Judgment. Although there's another opinion that says might happen twice once in the past and once it's gonna happen at the sign of the Day of Judgment. But regardless, it is indeed a sign that was mentioned in the Quran, and the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam Ali. So these are just three signs that we believe that happen and confirm
according to the majority right now on the subject of the spirit of the moon, shallow terracotta when we come back next week, we're going to talk more about some of the signs that happened and confirmed or when they were confirmed by scholars of that time that they repeat afterwards.
Meaning even though they said they happen and they're not going to repeat. Some other scholars are later on, they said, You know what, even though they said it would never repeat, but here we have some events and incidents that says these are signs that will continue to repeat. What are the signs? We're going to talk about next week in Sharla? With the water code on well done. If you have any questions, we can take questions. Yes.
A one way love my
I love a lot.
That should lead to a loss.
Let me just take one at a time. So basically, the question over here is about the veteran who said that, on the day of judgment, the best the best acid that he would bring with him to the Day of Judgment, is his love to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah and His Messenger, to Allah love of Allah and His messenger. So does that mean that if you just come with that love will be sufficient for you to enter agenda? Remember, what we said is actually the genuine love. And here's the thing about genuine love. If you truly love Allah subhanho wa Taala, and the messenger sallallahu, wasallam? Wouldn't that entail that you would follow their commands, you would follow their commands, right?
What type of commands, maybe you will follow, you're not follow graduate of commands, but you would never violate the prohibition or at least you never actually go, Yanni. And you will always give the minimum that kind of the Salah the fasting, and as the current Hutchinson, you always keep the minimum just like that. bedwin when he left, he said, that's what I'm going to do on the left the purposes of the hobby and so if he does, the truth is successful. So eventually, you're going to have to perform that, however, doesn't mean that if you love Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam so much that that means you're not going to make any mistakes. Of course not we're humans, we make mistakes.
And we have seen that some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, even though Sahaba are they allowed to run home, and they made mistakes during the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they were punished for these mistakes. One of those men who used to drink so much,
maybe got used to drinking as a habit before Islam. When he became Muslim, he couldn't stop. So they used to keep bringing him to be punished for drinking. One time, the one the one of the Sahaba delaughter and he says Carla Kabbalah
Kabbalah which means vote to him or just, you know, so disgraceful, and how much how many, how many more times they're going to keep bringing them you know, for, for drinking, to be punished for drinking. The prophets, Allah salam, he stood by this man, he says,
Don't Don't do that. Don't Don't Kherson Finally, herbal law, water sooner. This man he loves Allah and His Messenger Subhana Allah some of the Sahaba they said that when we heard that from the Prophet salla salaam, we wish to be in his position.
Can you imagine that you wish to be representative of that person, even though he drinks but the prophets Allah said he testified that he this man he loves a lot His Messenger truly, but he's a human being. He's weak regarding that Shahada desire. Maybe he was addicted. So he didn't have like today's you know, rehabs and support groups that can help them get out of that addiction. Somehow they had to deal with it on his own, or the Allahu Allah Allah.
Yes. Any other questions? Mr. Fuller?
The length of time. Good question. The split of the moon does the Harris speak about how long it took for that moon to be kind of apart. Actually, not specific in terms of how long but the Shura means the commenters on the holiday said that.
It wasn't that long. So it wasn't that long for people to kind of sleep all night and then wake up to see out there it was just long enough for people to witness and observe and then went back again. Well, ah, we have actually a couple of questions from the online audience on on Twitter. For those who would like to send their question they can send it to the hashtag VRIC qa that's Valley Ranch Islamic Center QA and we have a subwoofer is not here right now. Actually, we have live questions. Mashallah.
So, somebody says Salaam over here, it says so you said that the splitting of the moon is controversial. What does that the other side deliver? while the other side David depends on whose other side that you're saying? If we're talking about the other side as being, if we're talking about the other side, being the Muslims so some of
them, some of them, they say this is only a future sign, which means the IRS speaks about a future sun, the sun of their judgment that's going to happen at some point later in, of course, in time, or maybe as one of the major signs of the establishment of the hour itself, when Allah subhanaw taala brings, you know, the moon and the sun and the sun together and so on.
And we're talking about deviant sex and philosophical sects of Islam. They denied that altogether completely. So they say there is no such thing as splitting of the moon at all. And some of them they refer that again, as part of the science of the end of time.
And if we're talking about non Muslims of our time, of course, they don't believe that this is even happened at all completely. And this is just you know, because they don't believe in Islam. So the argument with them should not be about if it happened or not as much as believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost.
Any question from live questions here?
Yes, oh, let me just read this question please.
Okay, I'm going to skip this question is not related to the subject right now, but inshallah maybe when we were done I can answer this question. Okay.
Do we have to discuss this
even though Do I have to I believe
we mentioned that so this is a sign of these are signs of
so the question again is what if I for example, I don't want to believe in this to be a Saturday of judgment as a Muslim? Would that would that kind of affect my the quality of my Islam my Eman or even affect Islam altogether? Like we said, you know, the signs that we know they are being confirmed and accurately confirmed as signs of the Day of Judgment. People of course if they deny it like if you deny the Prophet Mohammed Salah them altogether, that's good for by itself. But if it's an controversial issue regarding the description of the sign, not necessary the actual establishment of the sign because we all believe the AI is there in the Quran Apertura but aside when Chapelle
comma Allah says about the moon, to be split in two, but now the interpretation is that this happened in the past, would happen in the future. Whatever Muslim says I don't want to believe this. I don't believe this happened in the past even though the Hadith is Muslim. Now that's a really a very dangerous journey path. But if someone someone takes the interpretation of the some of them of a city in regarding of this being a sign of the future, and of course I cannot rule a person in or out of Islam because of this, but it's a very dangerous path to deny an authentic hadith has been proven you know, to be hate, such as hate and other mass wrote out a lot and and regarding the sign
of the disarm in the spirit of the moon, being at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam voila, but here the argument will be about the value of the Hadith itself.
Well, if you're going to be discussing these signs with non Muslims, you shouldn't be even discussing that fashion in the first place. You first start with the belief in Allah subhana wa tada and once they believe it's easy to for them to submit to these signs Hold on. We have a question from one of the sisters on Twitter as well sister Sarah, she says I'm revert and do the signs happen in checklist where the signs given at the same time or revealed one at a time. So the signs they're not going to happen as a checklist. It's not like you're gonna be sitting there and watching it. It is number one, number two, number three, these are the minor signs they're going to happen someone
that they're going to keep repeating Thank you very much.
So they happen and they keep repeating these are the signs that they will happen and they keep repeat. But the signs that will happen as a checklist will be actually the major signs of the Day of Judgment.
The major signs of the Day of Judgment this will happen as a checklist because the prophets Allah Sam spoke about them as being like mythical mythical heroes 11 like the beads, the beads in a necklace. Once the thread is cut off, what will happen to these seeds they will come out one after the other so it can easily be recognized one after the other well done but if if this happens, mela soprano to protect us all from this and you don't want really to be there when these things when this has happened. It would be difficult really to control your money, your email you want to you want to tell even on which side you will be yourself mala mallamma is always on the right side and
So a question when we see signs What should we do? A question if we see these signs, what should we do? Some of the signs like the jail for example, the major sign if you see the journey here about the jail being in one place. What do you
run away, don't say, let me just go and see maybe it's not true maybe no, if you hear that the job is one place, run away from that. But the other side is like what we see around us all the time, you see, like, you know, unfortunately, the practice of some Hadramout and prohibited acts such as demand for vacation. And
and let's say the practice of in the Muslim countries of some of the things that were Muhammad are now becoming very common the practice of Muslims Unfortunately, when we see that, we always say our development strategy, but we have to be active, we have to be active and still promoting good and forbidding evil, reminding the people to do that which is good. And imagine that this is something evil that should they should actually quit doing and still stay away from. So you need to be active when you see this. It's not just about you, keeping yourself safe. You also need to make sure that everybody in Charlotte Allah is with you on it.
Another sister actually sister is asking also as a revert, is there any text you would recommend for me to read on the subject?
Yes, there is a one of the beautiful series in English is the series of chef almost eliminated. The series of chef Omar Suleiman Ashkar chef former city manager Rahim Allah alone, he just passed away recently in Amman, Jordan. He had about six volumes almost this six volumes speaks about our Candyman. So the whole six articles of faith beginning to believe in Allah subhanho, wa Taala, the messengers, the angels, the books, and so on. So the whole series of that kind of demand available in English language, and particularly the last, the last one is not just one volume, which means the last sign and the sign of the Day of Judgment. It was divided into three volumes, each one speak
about particular aspects of the Day of Judgment, such as the minor death and the minor signs, then the major signs of the judgment and the establishment of the Day of Judgment. And then there's a volume on agenda to or not, which means the event past the resurrection, what happens next until it talks about agenda and talking about Johanna mela particulars from gentlemen, Gemma. Well, Donna, any last question? Yes.
If you have an opportunity to let's say, You're the consultant for the architect,
the brother saying, let's say if you were the architecture architect, basically in in one of these Muslim countries that they're trying to compete with Khalifa right now, should you discourage the project? Or should you say, should you just take your salary and just enjoy being part of it? What would you do in this case? Should you discourage that or not? Just like this, just like I said, you know, just like I said, you are not going to stop the signs of their judgment from happening, because Allah Subhana, Allah wants this to happen, they will happen.
So therefore, if you just remind the people about it, I mean, it's up to you. But can I participate? If I chosen to be like a manager in this project? Should I participate? Well, it depends on the value of that project, if you think there is any value for it. I don't see any problem with that because having these buildings by themselves, the professor Sam didn't say that they are Haram. And then he didn't say that these are an act of Kufa or No, he didn't say that. Was he promoting this solar system? No, it wasn't promoting that. But he was speaking about facts that will happen in the future people will be competing to build these lofty building now.
Yes, the intentions the value of it for the society how much money was spent in there and so on. That's all different story maybe from that perspective, we criticize these projects Mallanna not Yes.
Well, the expansion of the of the grandmas messages in Mecca and Medina will be concerned as sons of the Day of Judgment, we shall talk about this inshallah, later when we come to this point, they are actually part of the science of the Day of Judgment. And just this past Sunday, actually, I spoke about it briefly here after failure as one of the signs of prophecy as I mentioned, just before the day of judgment is that the Medina will be deserted and that the house the house of measures of Rasulullah sallallahu Ala Moana he also deserted me nobody will be there around it. Now when you look when you put things in perspective, you will realize that today if you go to Medina Masha the
masjid has expanded so much that the closest house is the closest residential areas is too far from the method. So people if you hear that and by the time you walk from your home to pray in Gemma, Gemma will be gone already. So that's how huge this construction and the site of the method has become. So Allahu Allah, maybe this is one of the signs that the professor Allison mentioned will be from the sensitivity of judgment. Well, hold on. I'm so sure next week when we come back, we will continue with some of those minor signs and we'll elaborate on some others inshallah Allah chromatic rahmatullah wa barakato
