Sharapova

00:00:36--> 00:01:28

alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala syedna Mohammed in one early he was so happy he married about. So in the last class I would I had begun the discussion of the jug. And I had mentioned some of the Hadith about the creation or the characteristics of the, the job, and again to go over some of them and to reiterate, the concept of the job has been narrated by over 40 companions, we have a hadith about the job in every single book of Hadith without exception, the six books and Muslim I'm an Bharani and the books go on and on and on. The concept of the jug is something that the Hadith scholars say is motor water. And water water is the highest level of Hadith narrations what it means, to many

00:01:28--> 00:02:11

people have narrated it, you know, if one person narrates, perhaps some can see his memory, this and that, I mean, perhaps one can say, but when you have 1020 3040, in the case of the jail more than 40 Sahaba are narrating from the prophets of Allah who it who was selling them, you have more change than you can count them to come and deny that the job to negate that the job and the existence of the job. The only way you can do this is if you don't believe in Hadeeth. Okay, the only way you can end up rejecting the job is if you don't believe in Hadeeth. And there are groups that did not believe in Hadeeth. And they still don't believe in Heidi. And that's a separate topic altogether.

00:02:11--> 00:02:50

The more it says it of old the rejected Hadith in these days as well you have your modernist or so called, you know, progressives or whatnot, they also denied Ethan, that's their strand of Islam. For the majority of the oma especially those that ascribe to what is called Sunni Islam. As I say over and over again, the definition of Sunni Islam is to respect the sooner that's why Sunni is called Sunni from the sooner we believe in the Sunnah as the second source of law, after the Quran, there are groups that don't believe in this or not, that's their business. And that's a different topic altogether. For those who accept the sooner and I am one of them. You cannot accept the sooner and

00:02:50--> 00:03:34

negate the judge is that clear? It doesn't come hand in hand, too many a hadith about the judge. And as I said, they are every level so here motivated, authentic. And of course there are some weak ideas about the agenda as well, but the concept is what to watch, and we don't have time to go through all 45 narrations or 45 actual Sahaba there are more than 45 narrations. 45 companions narrated a hadith about the agenda, it will take us a number of dissertations to go over all of them in a nutshell, what are some of the characteristics of the the job our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that the job shall be physically deformed, multiple a hadith about him not being

00:03:35--> 00:04:16

even up to the standards of a regular you know, a normal human being and a number of things are mentioned about him most prominently the fact that one or both of his eyes is deformed. Our scholars have different is it right or left but in all likelihood, it's really one eye and so one I will be festered one, I will be basically like a floating grape or a festered grape as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, of the a hadith as well about the descriptions of the gel, as we said, is that anybody who has an ounce of Eman will recognize that the gel because they shall see the word Kaffir written on his forehead, and our Prophet so I sent him said, The illiterate person

00:04:16--> 00:04:59

will read it just as well as the literate person. You don't need to be a literate person to even recognize the concept of the the job of the things mentioned about the job, our process, some said that the job shall have no children after him when law EULA Duda, who the jail will not have any children so that the job will be a person who will come towards the end of times and have the characteristics he shall claim to be the Messiah, and then he shall claim to be the ROB himself. So there's going to be a coming bigger and bigger of his claims. He shall claim to be a law xojo himself used to claim to be the Rob and our profits are seldom explicitly said there's that he

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Shall claim to be the Rob and know that you shall not see your Rob in this world. So the concept of seeing a law is valid, but not in this dunya. So he linked the concept of seeing a law with the judge, he said, know that you shall not see your Lord in this world, because you will see him when on judgment day and agenda, you will see him in the ACA insha, Allah, Allah, may Allah make us amongst them. So he said, You will not see your Lord in this world, meaning anybody who claims to be God is lying, nobody that you will see will be God in this world. And he also mentioned that I will tell you that the gel is one IDE, and your Lord is not one IDE. What does it mean your Lord is not

00:05:45--> 00:06:31

one IDE. It means that john will not even be a perfect human being How can he be God? Even his imperfection is obvious. He doesn't even have to eyes. Your Lord is not imperfect. Your Lord azzawajal is gentle, Nigella Lu, he is perfect, you will see the job you will recognize him he's not even he has the regular capabilities of a human How then can he claim to be God and Allah azzawajal will not be seen in this world and allies origin is Lisa B. Our he is not one of the things that are mentioned as well about that the job is that he shall walk with crooked legs, his legs will be basically not straight legs, so another deformity that he will not be walking. Normally. All of

00:06:31--> 00:06:47

these are meant to emphasize as well that the job is a person who has physical imperfections. And yet in his arrogance, he is claiming to be God himself to be Allah subhanho wa Taala in one hydrothermally our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:06:49--> 00:07:07

that the jar will come from an Eastern land that is called hora sun, that the joy will come from an Eastern land that is called hora sun and groups of people will follow him they will be as if their faces are hammered out are hammered out.

00:07:09--> 00:07:54

Shields hammered out shields so a shield that has been hammered out IE a flat face. Now some have said these are the description of the Eastern folk and Allah knows best but the point is their facial features will be something that is a typical for the outer brace for the outcomes, they will locked find them to be of their race, the majority of people that will follow Him will be from that other race as well. Our Profit System said and the Hadeeth is investor demand and it is a hesson Hadith that the Zhao will come from a city called Isfahan. So it is mentioned by name that Joe will come from a city called Isfahan from the hood of the city of Isfahan and many of his followers will

00:07:54--> 00:08:41

be from that city 70,000 of the hood of Isfahan will be his followers. And therefore, we see from this that that the Jarl his background will be from the Bani Israel in and many of his followers will be from the Bani Israel. And in another Hadith it is mentioned that he shall come between the lands of Iraq and sham. So how do we reconcile he shall come from Isfahan and he shall come between a rock and a sham. And our scholars have said that he will first appear his first claim will be in Esfahan. But he will get global attention between a rock and a sham. So there's going to be levels of His appearing outward, there's going to be levels of claiming and his first claim will be in

00:08:41--> 00:09:22

Isfahan in the land of Iran is for Han. And of course is for Han by the way interesting footnote here that from the first temples destruction of Babylon, the first batch of the Diaspora of the year, but of any Israeli, they migrated to Isfahan. And to this day there is a group from that, from that religion in the people of Isfahan To this day, from the first destruction of the temple from the days of Nebuchadnezzar. These are the yehudah of the diaspora. And they are still a small group. They used to be much more in number before 1947. But of course because of the creation of the country, and many of them migrated to that land. So in all Arab and Muslim lands, they become very

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

small but there is still a synagogue in that city. And there are still people of that faith tradition in that city and our prophets ism said that the job will come from that particular land and that particular city and that particular race and religion and he will be from that people. Also we learn in the authentic hadith that the job will come at a time of great chaos, bloodshed, hunger, starvation, and he will provide his followers safety and security

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

This explains why so many people will follow the journal. You see Alhamdulillah most of us have never been hungry to the point of us going almost mad. We don't understand. When you are hungry, you lose rationale. When you cannot feed yourself or your children, you will do desperate things. May Allah protect us from ever seeing that day. The people of that timeframe will be tested by trial, war, bloodshed, hunger, starvation, here comes a man who appears to be powerful in terms of his army, who will grant you safety and security. If you're on his side. Our Profit System said he will come on the skies terrain and they will rain.

00:10:53--> 00:11:03

Our process Some said he will distribute bread and food. One of his signs he will be giving food left, right and center at a time of starvation.

00:11:04--> 00:11:55

When people are starving, they're willing to do many things. He will demand his followers believe in Him first as the Messiah. And many of them will one day believe in him as the Messiah, he will then up the notch, he will then raise the bar or we should say lower the bar. And he will say I am your God, I provide your food for you. I provide your drink for you. I give you safety and security. And so his followers will then take him as a god. And he will at that timeframe give his followers food and drink and many other people will not have that food and drink and so people begin to follow Him and mass. And this is the center of the issue of the journal as well. Our Profit System said that he

00:11:55--> 00:12:42

will have the shale teen at his disposal, he will have the shale teen at his disposal. So the shale team will do things at his command and the shale team are able to do what we are not able to do the Shelton do not have super natural powers. They have superhuman powers, the two are different. supernatural is not the same as superhuman. A horse has superhuman powers is faster than us. It doesn't make it supernatural. Okay, an elephant has superhuman, it's stronger than us. It's not supernatural. jinns have powers that Allah has given them. Once we understand their powers, there's nothing strange about them. Nothing strange is just that the only thing that we should understand is

00:12:42--> 00:13:23

that they're in a world that we cannot see in who you are all come who are wakatobi Roman hydrolat arona, whom he shaitan sees you from a dimension you cannot see him. The jinn are faster than us stronger than us. And they're invisible. That's it faster and stronger. Many creatures are faster and stronger. We're not scared per se of supernaturally scared even of lions, we're not scared supernaturally, we might be scared of natural fear. But we're not terrified in the sense of supernatural. The only thing that freaks us out is that jinn are in the world of the unseen. Otherwise, if we understand that the giner faster and stronger. What they can do is they can lift

00:13:23--> 00:14:07

more than a human can lift, but they're not super natural. They cannot lift the whole world and all that is in it, they can lift maybe what five people can lift up like the story of Sulaiman and carrying the throne there faster than us, they can go faster at the speed of light. Other than that they are natural creations of a law. So these entities will declare their loyalty to that job. Once they declare their loyalty to the job, they will willingly cooperate with the job and that the job will appear to be a very powerful, supernatural person. In reality, he simply has some of the tricks and trades of the gin. The gin will make illusions that gin will lift things up the gin will and the

00:14:07--> 00:14:28

people will not see the gin that the jaw will say do this and something will happen and the people will assume that it is the power of the digit. It is also possible that Allah subhana wa tada will test the people by giving the job one or two issues that others do not have just like Allah has given shavon himself as

00:14:30--> 00:14:46

a not I don't want to say a blessing. It's not a blessing. Shere Khan has been given some life and what do you want to call it something that we have not been given? And that is a long life, right? Did not Allah give shape on something that we do not have? And that is life until

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

until Judgment Day, no other person has that no other person, no human being has that and Allah azza wa jal gave it to shape on as a test for shape on and as a test for us.

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

as well. So it is possible that Allah subhana wa Taala will give the judge certain privileges and powers that are attest to him, and are attest to those who follow Him, and will be a sign of a man for those who reject Him. And of them is the power and the capability to cause the sky to rain, because jinns don't have that power. jinns cannot cause the skies to rain on the alert can do that, right? As Allah says, In the Quran, who is the one who sends the model from the heavens, only Allah subhanho wa Taala. But a lot can give that power as well. He will have the power to at least once, maybe, maybe more, but the minimum is once he will have the power to resurrect the dead. And that is

00:15:47--> 00:16:33

another thing that he resembles with the true mercy. And that is a sub memoriam. That's why he is the false mercy. There are certain things in common but reasonably memoriam said worship a law and the judge says worship me. That's why he is that judge. So for sure he will resurrect one person at least from the dead. But in all likelihood, he will pretend to resurrect other people from the dead. This is explicit. It is mentioned as a Muslim that a person will come and not believe in the jug. And he will be a person who doesn't know Quran Sunnah is a Muslim who doesn't know much, the jar will say, What if I resurrect your parents in front of your eyes? And what if I tell or your parents

00:16:33--> 00:16:48

tell you to believe in me? Will you believe in me? So he says, of course if my parents come and say, then I believe so he will command the child teen to take on the forms of the parents of this person.

00:16:49--> 00:17:29

You see, Shane can come in forms. You know, this culture believes in ghosts. Whenever we get to the issue of gender, whatnot, we will say there's no such thing as ghost wandering this world. The route does not remain the logos, but what can happen is the jinn can take on the form of a person. So that when you see that entity, you think it is that person who has died, but it is not that person who has died, the person who has died is gone. That's it, they're not going to come back, but the jinn can take on the shape of that person. So the john will tell to Jin's to come in the form of the parents of that person. And the person will then see his own mother and father, he will think they

00:17:29--> 00:18:12

are in the flesh, they are not in the flesh, they are jinn and his mother and father will say, all my son, this is your Lord worship Him, this is true worship Him. So the man naive, innocent, he goes okay, my mother and father say so he can, you know, my job, he will think it's God Himself can resurrect the dead, then I will believe in him. So, the prophet system warned us that he will have tricks and trades, he also said he will have with him genda And now, some have said it literally means a fire and a garden. Some have said it means he will come with what appears to be blessings and lots of punishment. Both are allowed here because Jenna represents

00:18:13--> 00:18:58

money and fruits and you know, sustenance and not represents punishments and torture. So it could be that he actually has a physical gender enough and it could be that what the process is saying, because the Arabic allows this and we're going to come to this issue. When is it metaphorical? When is it literal? You know, gender can indicate luscious gardens, it can indicate lots of fruits and pleasure pleasures. So he will have with him pleasures, and he will have with him punishments and tortures. So our Profit System said realize his pleasures are actually his torture, and what you think are his tortures are actually gender. So if one of you sees it and cannot escape, the

00:18:58--> 00:19:33

profitsystem said he should jump into the punishments and that will save him. So if you have real eemaan in a law, when you see the job and he has his torture mechanism, he has entities that you think will harm you will kill you. The profitsystem said jump into what you think is harmful, and you will be safe now. It is possible and Allah knows best It is possible that these not that you see are the shell thing. And when you jump into them, you are demonstrating what are you demonstrating?

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

Emma, you are demonstrating a man in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the only way to fight the shale teen. You cannot fight them with your fists, can you? They're stronger than you. You cannot take them down with your physical strength. The one thing that you have that will diminish the Sheltie is your emotion in a law, our profit system if there's no Buddha

00:20:01--> 00:20:40

He was on an expedition. And a certain person's camel went upward and almost threw the person off. For no reason in the middle of the desert, the camel just goes up. So the man or the woman said, may Allah curse shavon shavon caused my Campbell to do this, the Profit System said, do not mention shaytaan like that, because if you do, his ego will become so big, he will become bigger than a house, because you ascribe to this to shape on, rather say, this smell law. And when you do so shaytan will become smaller than an atom.

00:20:41--> 00:21:29

What was the power that was used? The Name of Allah, the name of Allah eemaan cause the shape on to become insignificant, it is possible, it's not too much of a stretch to say that the john will have instruments of protection looks like protection and food and drinks and instruments of torture and evil and whatnot. When the people see they will be terrified, and they will rush to the gardens, thinking that that's going to save them and that's going to destroy them in the ark era. Our Prophet system said, if you have no choice you have between the garden and the and the fire jump into the fire of the john. It is very possible it's not a strike that this as we said torture of the jail

00:21:29--> 00:22:00

might actually the physical could be armies of evil people and and you know, whatever, Jim Shelton, and if you jump into it, putting your trust in Allah, you will go unharmed. Everybody will run away and you will be safe because you're a man and Allah will save you. So this is the test of a man when you see the actual the job. Also our Profit System described the day job as being a model and a hammer means what are ours what is a hammer mean? Read Do you think he will be read read?

00:22:01--> 00:22:06

The gel will be read. brownish, you made him a DC No no no.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

We just said Where's he from? He's not a DC Don't worry.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

What is read?

00:22:16--> 00:23:01

The Arabs have old they would call what we call in modern vernacular Caucasian, they would call them reddish or yellowish a hammer or asphodel was the term that was used to describe the Caucasian types of people okay, the term White was not to any generally appealed wasn't used to describe skin color. Okay? Because what happens when they go into sun you know, I need the the tan and whatnot you know the become a hammer literally like you know, yellow and whatnot even this native Indians would they call them yellow face pale face, there's their term for them, not my term is their term. So the notion of them being yellowish or reddish, right? So when the Hadith mentions any nation, or races

00:23:01--> 00:23:21

being yellow or red, this is our equivalent of that, you know, complexion, okay, so he did the process of described him as being a model. And that means basically of that race. And again, it fits into the description of the ethnicity of the job, as well. The processor said that

00:23:22--> 00:24:10

he his hair will be curly giant jarred has curly hair, his hair will be curly. He also described him as being relatively short. He also described him as being broad chested. He also described him as we said, as having legs that are not straight. So he's not walking in a straight gait, he has basically deformed legs. So, these are all descriptions that are given of the the gel. And he also mentioned in high detail, Mr. Dimon said that the majority of people who follow the job will be from the hood and also he said from the women, now, Why will the women follow the job, because of the safety given at that time, there will be chaos at that time, there will be hunger and starvation. And so those

00:24:10--> 00:24:56

who choose to follow the job, they will have that safety. And so it is possible that in that timeframe, in that chaos and whatnot, people certain types of people will be attracted to the false promises of safety that the the gel gives, as well as we had mentioned, that the gel, the Prophet sallallahu, it said, I mentioned that the gel will come that the gel will come from will appear between between a rock and a sham, and he will go through every single city in the world, he will go through every single city in the world. Now I've already mentioned last class that every city could do in Arabic, does not mean each and every without exception, this is not the meaning of kulu in

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

Arabic, could look in Arabic can

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

typically does mean the majority. This is what typically the word kulu means. And unfortunately in English, most of us most of the translators, when they translate kulu, they translated as each and every any. The point is that the majority of cities and the large cities in the world that gel will go through all of those cities, except of course for which city Makkah and Medina and we learned from the Hadith that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he shall try to enter Mecca and Medina, he should try to enter Mecca and Medina and he shall be stopped at the gates of Mecca and Medina by the angels. So if you want to be safe from the jungle, one of the things that you can do

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

is to flee to Makkah and Medina during that timeframe.

00:25:50--> 00:26:02

during that timeframe as well, in the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim, our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the jar will try to enter Medina and he shall be prevented from doing so. And then

00:26:04--> 00:26:37

he shall cause the city of Medina to tremble three times is an earthquake. So the jinn the Shelton will stamp on the city and there will be the notion of the earthquake. So people will think this is the destruction of Medina that the job is causing the destruction of Medina. So our prophet SAW Selim said that the Mona Phil Poon will all flee Medina and Medina will be left pure with believers who will remain in Medina, those who believe in the heady

00:26:39--> 00:27:25

those who believe in Hadeeth Do you understand where I'm coming from his prediction when Medina will start shaking and there is a man outside the door claiming to be God, you have already been warned by the prophet system stay in Medina. So the only people that would remain in Medina will be the ones who believe in the Prophet system and not in the jail. So our Prophet system said Medina is like a furnace it separates the chaff from the purity it separates the the the abnormalities or the the the fill it filters the filth from the pure like the furnace does the furnace purifies you know the mineral or comes out purifies Medina is like a furnace and he said this Hadeeth in the context

00:27:25--> 00:28:06

of the journal, so the journal will filter through Medina and therefore This also explains when I talked about the method the three four weeks ago, why will many of his followers the MADI, why will his followers be from Medina because Medina will be 100% pure 100% pure so who is going to go and fight on the side of the melody and on the side of Isa the people of Medina will stay there and they will then go out when the when the Maddie comes dad is one the people of Medina will exit and they will fight under the banner of the Maddie and Maddie Of course will be fighting that the job as I've already mentioned when we talked about the MADI, so that the job will come to Makkah and Medina but

00:28:06--> 00:28:51

will be prevented from entering and wherever he goes he will gather more and more followers and he will gain a very, very large army Now, we also learn, we also learn that's the jar that the the jar will go to Medina This is a very interesting Hadith and I actually look this up. When I first read it I couldn't believe it was that explicit actually went back to Muslim Imam and it looked at the but this hadith isn't Muslim by Mohammed. And it says that the jar will go to one of the mountains outside Medina after he has been denied entry by the angels. And he will take his followers to one of the mountains outside of the Adams boundary outside of the shadows boundary. folklore and

00:28:51--> 00:29:18

superstition says that it is the mountain where one of the major palaces is but Allah knows best that's folklore and superstition, which might not be far from the truth given all that's happening right now. But anyway, so that the job will take his followers to that mountain. And the Hadith says he shall point to the masjid and he shall say, Do you see that? White House

00:29:19--> 00:29:24

elbaite A built the White House, not the White House here in DC.

00:29:25--> 00:30:00

Do you see that white house? That is the house and the masjid of Mohammed? And we'll call it Mohammed? Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Why is this so interesting? Because if you ever fly into Medina, if you look down from the airplane, you will see a massive white complex because it's all marble. And you can see it for many many miles. And you can see it from the mountaintops. You can see it from the plane. I have had the pleasure

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

flying into Medina many, many times, and it is truly beautiful, it's beautiful, because the massive complex as you know, and it is white, and you can see it from far away. And the Hadith explicitly mentions that he will see in the distance he will point to a complex and he will call it the white Masjid and the White House and he will say the house is white meaning right, that white house is the house of the masjid of ultimate. And it is something that, you know, Allah knows best the very structure that we have, Allah knows best because it is a very sturdy structure, it will last Allah knows how many hundreds of years or we hope that the job will not come in our lifetime inshallah. So

00:30:39--> 00:31:27

we hope it lasts many hundreds of years. And it might be that very structure at a lowest point that it knows best. Now we also learn from and this is not explicit, but it's inferred from the Hadith of the mighty it is inferred from the Hadith of the malady, that the forces of the jungle, and the Muslims will be fighting multiple battles. And the Muslims will be able to protect themselves partially, but they'll never be able to destroy the army of the judge. This is a very, very key point, that the jail will not be victorious in every battle. But he will be protected as a person. He will not be harmed by or at least killed. Allah knows if he's going to be harmed by anybody other

00:31:27--> 00:32:17

than obviously who a Subramaniam, okay. And we're gonna talk about Isa, maybe in the next lesson or whatnot, the coming of recent and the signs of that, so that the john and his army will fight multiple fights, not just one. And maybe Alan knows best. And again, all of this is surmising. It's not even going to be one army in one location. Rather, they will be the forces, Which side are you on? Are you on the side of the jug, or on the side of the truth. So the world will be divided into two camps. Not necessarily one physical army, but two camps, two entities, you are fighting for the digital, or you're fighting for the truth, and righteousness and taqwa and Allah and His messenger.

00:32:17--> 00:32:49

And it is possible that some of the battles and the skirmishes, the Muslims will be victorious, and some they will not be victorious. And we know this because of the Hadith of the MADI, because the Prophet systems is saying that they're fighting the army here, they're fighting the army there, until finally, they will hear the cry that the journal has come out, and he's attacking your family. So they're going to go back in fear that they're going to see that the job, and they will find out that it is a false cry. Which means during that timeframe,

00:32:50--> 00:33:30

people will begin to recognize this at the end of times. And the smallest rumor will provoke theories of the job. And there will come a timeframe where they're just waiting, what is it the jet what is that the job, and it will indeed happen that the Muslim army with the malady is fighting somewhere we don't know where and the the the news, the rumors will come, the child has come where you left, wherever you were, that job is now where your family's work. So they're going to rush back towards Sham, that's where they're going to be based below the Sham, they're going to rush back to Sham, only to discover that the job has not yet come,

00:33:32--> 00:33:57

then the gel will come. And we don't know how long between this news of the gel coming. But eventually, then the Maddie will be leading them in Damascus, as we already mentioned, insalata ledger, and the ISA will then come down. Okay, so all of this will happen in the time of the melody, the fighting of the the judge. This also means and again, Allah knows best all of this is kind of sort of deriving.

00:33:58--> 00:34:20

And it's very terrifying in light of what is happening right now. And this is an interpretation that the forces of good and the forces of evil will begin to demarcate before the coming of the chart. And before the coming of the mighty because there's already wars going on. And there is no digit.

00:34:21--> 00:34:59

There's already fighting taking place and the gel has not yet come but the land or sorry, the mountain of the the situation is being prepared for the coming of the job. So it appears that there will be skirmishes, major wars, bloodshed, in some ID that is mentioned out of 199 will die. So what happiness will the survivor have? When will that happen with the job or before the job we do not know. We do not know there was going to be a massive war. The process of them said that the bird that is flying above will fall down dead. Is this nuclear war something like this. Again, these are all ideas that it's not too far.

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

Fetch to read a nuclear war, right? as Einstein famously remarked, I don't know what world war three will be fought with. But World War four will be fought with 16 songs. It's a very profound statement. I don't know what world war three is going to be fought with. But whatever it is fought with that said, that will be the end of civilization. Because too much nuclear power is too much what not World War four, if there ever is one will be what sticks and stones and by the way, this also goes to another issue. These are Hadith about horses and the time of the jug. These are Hadith about swords and whatnot, do we take them literally, Allah knows both opinions are valid, and it is

00:35:37--> 00:35:59

permissible to call a weapon a sword, and maybe there are some fancy weapons and whatnot. And it is also not unfeasible not unrealistic to assume that towards the end of times, all technology as we know it will be gone. And the only way that we can imagine this to happen is a real and true Armageddon. You know, there is the genre of movies.

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

Not that I'm encouraging you to watch movies, I'm just telling you, this is the reality. There's this genre of movies that you know, the apocalypse, Apocalypse, apocalypse happening, or what's going to happen after the nuclear explosion. And in almost all of them, what do we see common sense logic dictates that when this whole world goes to war, next time, may Allah protect us, and nuclear weapons are used everywhere, what is going to happen to civilization, it's gone, we're going to be back to sticks and souls, we're going to be back to lighting fires with not even matches, but rubbing things together, like we had to go back to that timeframe. So it is not inconceivable at all

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

to interpret these ahaadeeth literally, that that the judge and his followers, and the Muslims and the Maddie will literally be fighting on horses and and, and swords and whatnot, because all of that will be gone. Or to be metaphorical is also possible all of this is and it's not too much of a stretch as well. And Allah subhana wa tada knows, best. So this, these are some ideas about the jug.

00:37:02--> 00:37:47

And obviously, and obviously the issue of the gel coming towards the end of times our Prophet system said he shall live 40 amongst you that famous Hadith, he shall live 40 amongst you how much 40 he said, one of them will be like a year. One of them will be like a month, one of them will be like a week, and the rest will be like your regular days. Okay, the rest will be like your regular days. So you can calculate what is this going to be one year plus one month plus one week plus all of the rest of them will be regular days. Now what does this mean? Again, remember, the ahaadeeth of the render times are cryptic, always.

00:37:48--> 00:38:14

The slave shall give birth to her master. What does it mean? barefoot naked shepherds are going to compete with tall buildings? Is it literally barefoot naked, or their ancestors were barefoot and shepherds because as we said, these princes, they are not their foot and shepherds anymore. But their grandfathers were, again, a little bit of criticism Allah knows best. So what does it mean the first day will be like a year. Does it mean that it will actually be one year?

00:38:15--> 00:38:27

And so the timeframe of the job will be one year, one month, one week and 37 days? Or does it mean that time will appear to go slow?

00:38:28--> 00:39:08

nuclear weapons Armageddon, hello Adam. Does it mean that everything will just appear like that for a long timeframe? Allahu Allah, the famous Hadith in Sahih Bukhari Muslim and this shows us the status of Salah when we hear these a hadith our minds goes here and there is when the Sahaba heard it. The first thing they said Yasuda Allah, how do we pray in that year? That is the date? Yeah, and there are so much into Salah. Right? That the first thing their minds ask is how do we pray in that year, that's going to be a day or that day, that's going to be a year and our Prophet system said, you estimate it, you estimate it. So

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

an interpretation and this is all he had.

00:39:14--> 00:39:20

an interpretation is that there will be no sunlight for a year.

00:39:21--> 00:39:27

So it will appear that for one full year it is as if it's a day and night.

00:39:28--> 00:40:00

And that's why our processing said you keep on estimating the times of Salah you keep on estimating the times of Salah even if you don't see the sun and the moon. This is an interpretation and the only way that there will be no sunlight all over the world is once again if these weapons of mass destruction The irony is the very country that claimed others have weapons of mass destruction is itself guilty of having the worst weapons of mass destruction and as it accused others falsely and invaded others falsely is a complete tangent.

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

As you can see, as it accused others false and others falsely, it is the only country in human history that has used the nuclear weapon against innocent civilians in the cities of

00:40:12--> 00:40:55

which ones, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the irony of ironies, they get to accuse everybody as they go scot free themselves, and this is the way of the Jabbar number to come in anyway. So the point being, where was I talking about the, the the one day, Allah knows best, a very valid interpretation, which I don't see, to be unreasonable, that that year will be an actual year, it will be an actual year 365 days, but people will not be able to recognize them as day and night. And then slowly, but surely the small will settle what not. And so the next one will be like a month that okay, things are clearing up, and then whatever might happen. So Allah knows, because this

00:40:55--> 00:41:39

could be an interpretation where we can reconcile, or time can go slow, I mean, a lot of collusion flooded. And there's nothing you can do either way that we can do this. But we learned from this that, that the journal will be on this earth for a period of time, that is reasonable, it's not that much of a stretch, even if we say 14 days, the first one of which is a year, and then a month. So in total, it's less than two years, right? In total is less than two years, a year and a few months, right, two months in something that's not too long and hamdulillah. Now that the gel will be here, meaning he shall be the job for that timeframe, he will grow up, as we said, a regular child, he

00:41:39--> 00:42:15

might not even know he's that the job when he's growing up. Or maybe it will, we don't know, one of the two, as the Hadith mentions, he shall appear when someone provokes him, which means in his forehand, something's going to happen. And he's just going to go berserk and ballistic, and then realize he has these powers or jinzo Shelton that others don't have, and then take it from there, take advantage of that and go from bad to worse, declare himself at the mercy get his followers eventually go ahead and declare himself God Himself. And all of this is going to grow worse and worse and worse. So all of these are the IDs of the that job. Now. Our profit systems that had

00:42:15--> 00:42:26

atheism was the image that most of his followers will be from the Yahoo. Now, this leads us to a very interesting issue and tangent.

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

We had mentioned last class last week that

00:42:31--> 00:43:09

the Christian belief is very similar to our belief, especially the evangelicals, that Jesus is the Messiah. And he shall come back towards the end of times, that there shall be a false messiah, the Antichrist, and that Christ and antichrist will fight it out. And that Christ will win over the antichrist in the great Armageddon. In this rough skeleton, we are the same, no issues now with the devils in the detail, and they have a lot of other elaphite. But in this skeleton, evangelicals, Baptists, Muslims, we all believe the same thing.

00:43:10--> 00:43:45

Of course, there are many differences of them, we do not have this as an explicit mention. But they do. And that is that this will only happen when the money is thrown in are gathered in the Holy Land. Okay, this is the belief of evangelicals, that Jesus will only come back when all of the money is through him, are gathered in the Holy Land. And therefore, because they want to see their Lord and Savior, they are eager to bring the story to the Holy Land.

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

Are you guys following? I am being

00:43:50--> 00:44:30

while lebu beshara dfmo. I'm being a so they want the people of that faith tradition to go to that land. And it is because of this, that some of the most hardcore Zionists are not people of the Jewish faith. They are evangelicals, because it is their aqeedah it is their aqeedah that with the return of the Promised people to the promised land, their savior will come back. So they want to expedite that. Now, ironically, they believe when the Savior comes

00:44:32--> 00:44:49

the firt one of the first things he's going to do is to get rid of those who didn't believe in Him, and primarily according to their al Qaeda, the people who tried to kill him or actually succeeded in killing because they believe they succeeded. Now this is the irony of ironies, think about it. I need you to understand my point here.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

This group wants to expedite and support the Bani Israel to go to this land.

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

With the al Qaeda that will all be destroyed in that land. You understand this?

00:45:06--> 00:45:19

They are ardent Zionists. And they have no love for the people whom they are helping. On the contrary, there are key that is that the very people they're helping

00:45:21--> 00:45:25

you understand this point, right? will lie, I jumped on a Jeep,

00:45:26--> 00:45:33

how can the other group accept their aid, knowing that this group wants us dead?

00:45:34--> 00:46:02

And, you know, my mind was perplexed and I actually, you know, I am interfaith person, I'm involved in whatnot. I had a friendship with one of the rabbis of, of Memphis and we go out to lunch every, you know, few weeks and whatnot. It's good to have interfaith and friendship, and we got to a very frank point. So I actually asked him, I said, Aren't you embarrassed to accept help from people who think that helping you will eventually cause you to be killed?

00:46:04--> 00:46:38

Isn't there some hash out of some dignity is America like, the very people who want to get rid of you? They're helping you in the way that you'll be gotten rid of. And he just smirked. He goes, Well, that's their belief. If they want to throw money and power at us, then you know, we don't believe it's gonna happen is there? Basically he said, in a nutshell, if they're foolish enough to believe it, that's their business I'm we're gonna still accept their power and help. So we have to understand this point. All Muslims, the people who are supporting this guy in the White House, right, this whole move to Jerusalem, the capital, whatnot, this is all a tactical decision. He might

00:46:38--> 00:47:14

be a blubbering idiot. But he is a tactical blubbering idiot. He knows what he's doing. He is feeding his base on other tangents upon a lot. He is feeding his base, he's giving them the scraps from the table. Why is he doing this? He knows his base is evangelical, he knows this people, they want him and so they feed him this stuff for do to do what, because they want this land to be the promised land for the promised people so that the Messiah comes and gets rid of these very people to establish heaven on earth and whatnot. And the final judgment, they although this is going to happen, so this is the athlete of the evangelicals, by the way, Catholics are different. Please

00:47:14--> 00:47:43

Muslims, educate yourselves, don't be any kindergarten level in your education and just extrapolate every Christian group is different. Every filter is different. Learn your filter, if you want to get involved in this issue, otherwise do not speak, speak with knowledge or remain silent. various groups have different operators, the Mormons are different. They have their own beliefs, the seven Day Adventists are totally different in this regard. And of course, the evangelicals, which is of course, the default in the state, the Baptist and whatnot. These are the ones that we're talking about knowing they're actually there is, in some ways very similar to ours in some way that's

00:47:43--> 00:48:37

different. So that's the hood. Sorry, that's the Christians. How about the hood? How about the what is their belief in the Messiah? And why is our Prophet system saying that the majority of of the followers of the judge will be from that group? Well, in Jewish eschatology, the term mushiya MSCI it refers specifically they do have this acleda and refers to a future king, king from the line of David. Okay, so mainstream Jewish belief is that there will be a person from the line of David from the descendants of wood, who will be a king and he will be anointed Messiah, Messiah, he will be anointed with holy oil and he will bring in that Messianic age he will bring in the end of times. So

00:48:38--> 00:48:51

the Mercia in their update that is called the king mercy. mela mushiya Mela mela mushiya the king Monsieur because for them

00:48:52--> 00:49:39

the Messiah is a political figure. Not a religious reformer. Okay. For them it was the Messiah is the one of power and politics and not somebody who comes to this gear to knifes and, you know, Risa is coming and telling them you know, over shooto comb and giving you glad tidings the you know, Bella Bushra is the event Evangelio under the evangelical, the Injeel in geo evangelical By the way, evangelical and Injeel the same term in Jesus and God good tidings evangelical, that's where it comes from. So the Messiah in in, in Jewish folklore is a king from the line of Deadwood who will bring about the restoration of the status of the Israelites and reconstruct the temple of Israel.

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

Okay, so they do believe in the Messiah as a political figure, and who will bring back the kingdom of hope of the world. And this has been a mainstream of ancient medieval and even some modern Jewish movements as we're going to come to right now. And that is why dear Muslims when

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

The mercenaries came

00:50:03--> 00:50:08

and he began preaching to the Bani Israel he. And he claimed he was the Messiah.

00:50:10--> 00:50:17

The yahood did not care about a Messiah, that's a spiritual reformer. They wanted a Messiah who is what?

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

Who is a king.

00:50:20--> 00:50:45

And so when they found out that this person is not a king, they went and complained to the king to the Roman Emperor. And they said, We have a man who is claiming to be the king of the Israelites. Did your Isa claim to be king? Hello, did Isa come to be king? Why did they who'd say he's claiming to be king?

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

Are you guys following this?

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

Because he claimed to be the Messiah. And in the eyes of the hood, the message is who? The king. And so what happened with Pontius Pilate, what happened with them happen? And they said, Oh, this is a political agitator, they would not have cared if they if Jesus said he's a religious reformer, they didn't care. What is there to do in a religious reformer, but they did worry that he's claiming to be a king. They don't want any political trouble. And that's why what happened happened. So they didn't want to arrest him. And then what happened? We will talk maybe in another lecture, what do we Muslims believe in? What are the various theories out there? But anyway, now you understand that

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

issue.

00:51:25--> 00:52:03

Now the issue we need to come back to is that belief in the advent of the sea, was a mainstream of Jewish theology. And for them, the Messiah will bring back the power and there is of the Kingdom of David that used to be and therefore, when the single greatest theologian of Jewish law and Jewish theology, there is only one that is shameful Islam amongst them, there is one amongst them in all of their history that they consider to be the greatest Jewish mind and that is the Jewish the origin, the most famous in the history of Judaism.

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

Anybody?

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

Yes, very good. But who

00:52:11--> 00:52:37

are Muslims, you should know this name because he was an Arab, meaning. He spoke Arabic, that's what I mean. He lived in the lands of Muslims. He spoke Arabic more fluently than any language. He wrote in Arabic, Arabic, and totally different, tangible I will go into these tangents. There is a theory that for a period of his life, he was a Muslim. Because he studied

00:52:38--> 00:52:54

in a madrasa. He memorized portions of the Koran. He studied film, and theater, in the Islamic tradition, because back in those days, all universities were run by Muslims back in those days, you know, if you go to university here, right, you go to

00:52:55--> 00:53:37

UTD or SMU or something they tell you you must take you must take American history, you must take political science you must have these are the required courses, right? You cannot graduate in this country without taking these courses. Right. Well, once upon a time, if you wanted to go to any university and study engineering or medicine or optics, you would have to study film 101 basics of sharing. Okay, you have 32 feet of the Quran. I'm not joking. This is exactly what needed to be done. Okay. That was the that so most of them a moon manatees, you should know the name. Maimonides memorize this name. This is the single greatest intellectual of Jewish history completely. They call

00:53:37--> 00:54:21

him the chief rabbi Rambam. Rambam, the chief rabbi, he was the greatest Rabbi in the history of Judaism. He codify Jewish law, he and the Jewish law. The decoded fight is basically after he studied Islamic Sharia. Now he's writing a book of Okay, and he is the first and most important Jewish figure to write a book of al Qaeda, the book of theology, he wrote a book of theology, and he summarized it in 13 points, and he called it the 13 principles of a man 13 principles of human. Why did he summarize it either, because he studied al Qaeda from the Muslims and now he wants to do the same for the Jewish faith. And so Jewish al Qaeda, when it comes to many things, is actually coming

00:54:21--> 00:54:37

from the philosophy of the philosophy of a been brushed over always in others, because most of them a mon Maimonides and we're always we're basically coming from the same philosophical shrine. Anyway, back to our topic. What am I talking about? What am I talking about? Guys? What's the topic?

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

What do you believe about what

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

exactly about no not about the job, the jumping the gun, the hillbilly about what must be careful. The machine or the machine. The machine is the king of the Messiah. So most of the mamoon monitors

00:55:00--> 00:55:36

wrote a book called The 13 principles of faith, by the way, you can look it up, it's translated to English. And each principle begins with the phrase, any mcminn, and a movement, and a movement and a movement, any movement in Hebrew and a movement, this, I believe in this, I believe in this, I believe in this, the 12th principle of these 13, the 12th principle of these 13, and I quote from the translation, my Hebrew is too weak to actually read it to me, not gonna embarrass you with that, but I caught on the translation, I believe with full faith any men and men in the coming of the Messiah.

00:55:38--> 00:56:17

This is in the leader of Maimonides, which is the standard aqeedah of the Jewish peoples, up until our times, he is the only one who has qualified to that level after and I believe, with full faith in certainty in the coming of the Messiah. And even though he delays with all that delay, I eagerly await his arrival every day anticipating his arrival. This is the leader of Maimonides, that the hood would memorize, that they still believe to this date. And

00:56:18--> 00:56:25

as I have mentioned to earlier, what time is the that knife revive rate still hasn't changed? Okay, as I mentioned to you earlier,

00:56:27--> 00:57:02

we should all be aware that there are three strands, right of Judaism in our times. They are number one, which one, orthodox number two, conservative number three, reform, there are others reconstructions, but for our, let's just keep it these three. And the bulk of them on our times are reformed. Okay, actually, another tangent, but again, this is stuff you should be aware of this is something interesting. Around 2030 years ago, the Orthodox were so minuscule that the assumption was they would disappear.

00:57:03--> 00:57:06

It would be gone, especially in the 70s.

00:57:07--> 00:57:10

But there has been a massive revival.

00:57:11--> 00:57:45

And more and more yahood are joining the Orthodox, even if their parents were not orthodox. And so the Orthodox movement has swelled in ranks. And I don't know the latest statistics, but I think maybe up to 15%, which is a big number compared to what it was in the 70s 15%. Like, you know, one out of eight is an orthodox, okay. And one of the reasons By the way, again, all of this is a tangent, but inshallah it is beneficial to us as Muslims, because we need to learn from the good and the bad, we need to see history, we need to learn what's going on.

00:57:47--> 00:57:51

The fact of the matter is, why is there a return to Orthodoxy?

00:57:53--> 00:58:18

Frankly, because when you have a religion, whose values become so watered down, that they don't stand for anything, the very people say, what is this? It's not a religion anymore. And they will go back to an actual religion. And this is a big warning to those amongst the Muslim community who are flirting with progressive Islam.

00:58:19--> 00:58:22

When Islam becomes the flavor of the month,

00:58:23--> 00:59:01

then you have no Islam left, then what is the purpose of being a Muslim? When the Hillel becomes what is politically correct, and the Koran becomes what is politically incorrect, and you have no backbone to stand on, and you think you are preserving your faith in reality or losing it? Your children will not have any faith, what do you have left anymore? Our faith is not based upon the whims of society around us. We have the Quran, we have our shediac we have the way from Allah Now, I'm not saying we have to be intransigent No, our odema, especially our forward thinking, or they might have to navigate the flow, where there's allowance, we will take it but where there is none,

00:59:01--> 00:59:06

we will not take it where there's a red line, we do not go that area. So that's a point we learn.

00:59:08--> 00:59:16

In the 1960s 70s, there was a massive, as I said, almost everybody is going reform, their own children began rejecting it.

00:59:18--> 00:59:57

And they said, What is this there's nothing there. There is no need to be reformed. You can be atheist, you can deny God, there's no shediac you can eat pork and whatnot. And there's like, what what is left of my Jewishness and that they will say, what is left if there is nothing, so there's going back to the person and the author is orthodox, that is the hardcore literalist. Now, within orthodox, there are many, many strands. And of course, you have the Hasidic orthodox, you are all familiar with the Hasidic. hslda, the Hasidic and the Hasidic in particular is a strand of Orthodox, they have a very strong and passionate belief about the coming of the Messiah that is very imminent,

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

just about to appear and they will

01:00:00--> 01:00:04

Leave and this is important again that the more pious they are,

01:00:05--> 01:00:08

the more quickly the Messiah will come.

01:00:09--> 01:00:14

And that explains their fervor sness that explains their

01:00:15--> 01:00:25

ultra Yani literalism. Right they want to be, the more pious they are. So the more faithful they are, the faster will come the

01:00:27--> 01:01:07

the mercy, right. And so they are very, very hardcore about this, and within Hasidism, so this is I'm teaching you the fit up within Orthodox Judaism okay. By the way reformed does not believe in the Messiah has come completely obviously right reform doesn't believe conservatives, Mashallah with them as they don't really have law in a way that they've been they don't have any the conservatives, they don't really have a platform per se, because at least with the at least with the Orthodox, they're hardcore, like everything is all the weight, right? The reform, nothing, throw everything out the window. The Conservatives, they don't really have a platform, some here some there. How do

01:01:07--> 01:01:49

you decide? Each conservative strand has its own issue? So amongst the conservatives, some of them believe in the machine, some of them don't. Amongst the Orthodox they all believe in the machine is clear, right? That's why they're still orthodox. They believe in the coming of the Messiah, the Hasidic are of the most Masonic amongst them, and within Hasidism, there is the most prominent standard parasitism is called the Hubbard ch a baby the Hubbard movement, the ciabatta Hubbard movement, the Hubbard movement in particular, is the most messianic So much so, the greatest one of the greatest Jewish figures of our times an American born in Russia, migrated after Germany coming

01:01:49--> 01:01:59

here, he died in 1994. His name was Rabbi Menachem Mendel schneerson, one of the most famous rabbis presidents from what is it?

01:02:01--> 01:02:47

He forgot who was it for two, whatever onwards, they would have regular. He was like America's Rabbi of the Orthodox community. Of course, he's passed away in 1994, his followers began to claim that that person is the Messiah. Like that's how imminent it is still, to this day, some of his followers believe that the rabbi did not die, that he is still alive in hiding, which sounds similar to other groups, which is why similarities are made between that group in this group, but that is again besides this point, so, the point being, where am I heading with all of this belief in false misia is not hurt not false was scrapped that belief in misia is common amongst the hood.

01:02:49--> 01:02:56

Therefore, do you think it is surprising when towards the end of time somebody with power comes

01:02:58--> 01:03:08

and claims to be the overseer? And he is from that background? Is it surprising that lots of people will then accept that claim?

01:03:12--> 01:03:13

I need interaction guys.

01:03:15--> 01:03:33

It makes sense. you now understand why our profits isn't so seldom said that many of his followers will be of that group. Now, important point, our process some did not say many of that group will be his followers. Big difference.

01:03:34--> 01:04:02

It is possible that many of that group, many of the Jews will recognize truth and falsity it is possible. But from those who choose to follow Him, many will be from that background. You understand the difference? Right? large circle Venn diagram, small circle, get the point anyway. Oh, interesting tangent, which is very interesting. This is in the notes. It's not a tangent off the top of my head. These tangents get him into a lot of trouble especially for this topic. I have to be very precise, what I say.

01:04:05--> 01:04:09

Another very interesting tangent, which is relevant to us and it is in my notes.

01:04:11--> 01:04:23

One of the most famous claims of Jewish messianic fame, was a person born and raised and died in Muslim lands spoke Arabic fluidly

01:04:24--> 01:04:52

and he was a member of the Ottoman peoples meaning a citizen if you like him though, even though the concept of citizenship is modern, but and this is the famous Rabbi known as sharp tights v. Sharp tights v. Sharp tights v was born in Ottoman lands in the 16th 17th century 16 something he died in, don't quote me 17th century and Cheb tides v was a famous rabbi

01:04:53--> 01:05:00

who began to have a larger and larger following and eventually claimed to be the

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

See,

01:05:02--> 01:05:04

and his followers increased.

01:05:06--> 01:05:39

And he began demanding more and more things. A lot of problems happen. He's a very interesting figure. He intermingle with European kings and with the soul bond mamod, the fourth, the famous Ottoman soul bond, until finally, his demands became so ludicrous and political and along making a long story short, but he began to be political. And when he began to be political, the soul bond imprisoned him. And eventually, his followers clamored and whatnot. So the Sultan decided to execute shabbetai Tzvi

01:05:40--> 01:05:50

and he called him to his palace, and he said, Your penalty is death. But I shall forgive you. If you convert to Islam.

01:05:52--> 01:06:02

Now, I'm not arguing that was good or bad. I'm just telling you what happened. Whether that was good or not, it's not my business. That's what the Sultan Mamet, the fourth decided, if you convert to Islam, you are forgiven.

01:06:03--> 01:06:08

faced between these sharp tights, we decided to

01:06:10--> 01:06:11

convert to Islam,

01:06:12--> 01:06:18

which caused a great crisis amongst his followers. Because if he's the Messiah,

01:06:21--> 01:06:57

what are you going to do now? Right? It caused a huge crisis. He had 1000s of followers, and they all thought that he's going to be the Messiah, bring the kingdom of David back. There's no and lo and behold, he embraces the Shahada in public, he takes off the turban of the hood and he wears a big Ottoman turban Mashallah Tabata cola. And those days, your clothing would tell you apart, he had the clothing of a rabbi. And in the presence of the soul bond, he took off his Rabbi cloak, and he wore the Ottoman I'm not joking. I'm just not a joke. He literally, he wore the Ottoman turban, and he said the Shahada, and he said he's a Muslim.

01:06:59--> 01:07:01

What are his followers gonna do?

01:07:02--> 01:07:08

massive chaos, confusion. Some of them, I think the majority

01:07:10--> 01:07:11

ended up

01:07:12--> 01:07:20

either saying this is a ruse or a tactic, or converting with him, a small group left him.

01:07:21--> 01:07:36

So this turned out to be one of the most bizarre conversions in Islamic history. Because what happened was his followers in fact, he himself, became half Jewish, half Muslim.

01:07:38--> 01:07:42

He observed Ramadan, but he observed the Sabbath as well.

01:07:43--> 01:07:50

He read some Quran, but he also read the Hebrew. So he had this new

01:07:51--> 01:08:12

thing that came about. And his followers were called dawn May, Dawn May, which was a derogatory term by the Ottomans by the Muslims of the time, Don Mather is no English equivalent. It's, there's no English equivalent, it means

01:08:14--> 01:08:55

convert, but not with a positive connotation, like a trader convert, like there is no English word, a convert, but not like a positive convert. You've turned your back and left and you've come to me, we're not like a big question mark, you know, that type. This is the term that who gave them the Muslims of the time, they weren't happy with this guy and his followers too weird. Eventually. The supine Of course, by the way, initially was very happy, gave him a massive check here, massive money, he became a Muslim good. Eventually it turned out, he's still observing Jewish rituals and customs. So he lost all favor. He was exiled, he died in exile. His followers who are now outwardly

01:08:55--> 01:08:55

Muslim

01:08:57--> 01:09:18

inwardly continue to be what are called crypto Jews. Okay. And their numbers increased increased increased and they are still around in Turkey the dawn men they're still around to Turkey now to make the plot worse, to make the soup thick here.

01:09:19--> 01:09:24

There's a lot of conspiracy theories. We Muslims love conspiracy theories.

01:09:26--> 01:09:31

And the problem with conspiracy theories is they're so ludicrous except for the ones that are true.

01:09:33--> 01:09:59

This is the problem. And you can't really tell the true from the false hood until a little while ago, so conspiracy theories are problem nonetheless. I'm I'm narrating the conspiracies. I'm not endorsing them, please. Okay. So when fox news comes in quotes, misquotes, me those 10 seconds, please go back to this clip that I'm saying here right now that I'm simply narrating so that you should be aware. I am not endorsing

01:10:00--> 01:10:01

The conspiracy theories at all

01:10:03--> 01:10:20

the conspiracy theories that were started from that timeframe. And they lasted up until today there are there. The religious Muslims of the Ottoman lands, said these people are xenophobia. What are is another

01:10:22--> 01:10:34

crypto Muslims who want to destroy Islam. They're not real, they want to harm Islam. And they hate Islam but they pretend to be Muslim.

01:10:36--> 01:11:20

And the dawn may became rich and powerful in a number of cities, in particular, the one city where shabbetai Tzvi died and at the turn of the century, 100 years ago, and inshallah inshallah inshallah, in this year, I hope to give you a very academic lecture about the history of 1919, because that is one of the main turning points of our history 1916 and 1919. And 2016, I gave a talk in Memphis was June 26 1916, in the shaping of the Muslim world, now it is 2019. And I want to give a part two to that, in sha Allah, May, Allah gives me time, and whatnot is just a matter of time in preparing to the lecture in slides, but it's a 1919 you need to know this date.

01:11:22--> 01:11:29

Around this time, 1919, Around this time, a little bit before and after, Around this time, a group called The Young Turks were formed.

01:11:31--> 01:11:48

And the Young Turks were a very, very secular, anti religious groups of Turks, who were keen on abolishing the khilafah and bringing about a turkey that was secular in nature.

01:11:49--> 01:11:55

Now, what I'm about to tell you is true. Many of the leaders of this movement were from,

01:12:00--> 01:12:03

in particular, a very, very

01:12:05--> 01:12:15

dashing yet cruel, intellectual, yet heartless man called later called, Mustafa Kemal, later called Attack.

01:12:16--> 01:12:19

Attack is from the dawn medicines effect.

01:12:22--> 01:12:39

Now you go figure, what is conspiracy? And what is history, you go figure what is true and what is false. I'm simply telling you, the perception about the motives of the government. And then I will tell you factually, a TED talk hated Islam

01:12:40--> 01:13:24

at a took mocked Islam. He was not a believer in Islam at all. And it is very clear that he considered Islam to be something that caused his people and nations to be backward. And if he wanted to, if he was able to, he would ban the religion. He did enough damage to the religion as it is, as you know, he banned he shut down the murderer says he abolished the philosopher. He abolished the calendar the Grand Mufti role of the Grand Mufti, he made the court system secular got rid of all of the Shetty, he made the Quran to be recited in Turkish during the Salah, the other than was recited in Turkish, not in Arabic anymore. Instead of Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, this is something in

01:13:24--> 01:13:30

Turkish, that was his whole point to make everything. So a TED talk is from the dawn, may

01:13:32--> 01:13:45

you understand where conspiracy theories come from? And not just him, but many of those who followed Him? Do you understand how this is relevant to the job, it's not coming out of there, sharp tights v claimed to be misia. And all of this then leads there anyway. So

01:13:46--> 01:14:16

we have five, six minutes left. So I needed to mention one final thing, okay. Now, I have saved one issue to the very end because it is highly, highly, highly sensitive. And that is the Hadith that mentioned that towards the end of times when the big Armageddon battle takes place, and there shall be the judge on one side, and the ISA on the other. That is the final Armageddon, the big one, that Isa will kill the job.

01:14:18--> 01:14:23

And then all of the followers of the job will disperse running for their lives.

01:14:25--> 01:14:27

Many of them will be from that group.

01:14:28--> 01:14:31

And they will try to save themselves by hiding.

01:14:33--> 01:14:47

And the Hadith mentions this hadith in Sahih Muslim and there are versions of it. And by the way, this is a Muslim primarily, the Hadith mentions that, at that timeframe, the creation will side with the Muslims publicly.

01:14:48--> 01:14:59

I shouldn't even just say Muslims, the supporters of Isa, because there will be Christians who will support the ISA and believe in him so they will become Muslim. Right. And for all we know

01:15:00--> 01:15:15

There might be your who does well, who will choose at that time to be with the truth that you don't mention that all of them will follow. It just says the majority of his followers will be from there. There's a difference between the two. So

01:15:17--> 01:15:54

it was the Hadith mentions that every tree in every rock will say to the believer, come there is that person behind come and he is hiding, so that the there is no use to hide. There's no use to hide anymore because the creation of a law will publicly humiliate and say, Oh, he's hiding here come and deal with this person, except for the tree of a lot of cut. That is a tree that will be quiet and not side with the Muslims now. Every once in a while, some innocent hottie somewhere in the Western world gives a holdover and he quotes this heady

01:15:56--> 01:16:25

and memory jumps on him, you know what memory is, if you don't then have the love for you? Or Fox News jumps on him. Or Pamela Geller jumps on him and takes this small clip and goes viral with it, and says, Oh, this is an anti Semite, and he is calling for the destruction and he is Hitler version 2.73 and he is this and that bring him back again. Right. So it becomes problematic to quote our own tradition, because accusations of anti semitism come.

01:16:26--> 01:16:27

And

01:16:28--> 01:17:10

a few years ago, there was a University of California would host the MSA uploaded all of the books of Hadith. Once upon a time, if you ever did a Google about Hadith, the first one would come would be in California, one of the MSA brothers he uploaded all of the Hadith collections, and it was a great resource. Obviously these guys found it. And they found these a hadith in Sahih Muslim and they said the university is anti Semite or it is hosting anti Semites. It's hosting Sai Baba Sai Muslim. Right. So the university It was a big scandal. The university had to get involved, the MSA had to edit and censor Sahih Muslim.

01:17:12--> 01:17:22

So I Muslim had to cut a hadith if they wanted to host and eventually the whole thing was pulled, there is no longer the Heidi collection on their website is gone, is gone.

01:17:24--> 01:17:26

So this raises a very difficult topic.

01:17:28--> 01:17:30

Are these a hadith anti semitic?

01:17:31--> 01:17:36

The response, I think is very clear. And that is that first and foremost.

01:17:37--> 01:18:18

First and foremost, as a matter of principle, as a matter of principle, these are traditions that are found in books authored 1000 years ago, 1200 years ago, you know, books have had the censorship doesn't make any sense, are you or people who are criticizing a book on the past, going to censor your own books and not teach them when they have misogyny when they have race issues when they have issues that might be politically incorrect. There is hardly a classical book hardly, except that there are phrases or notions, even Shakespeare has anti semitism read The Merchant of Venice, it is a purely anti semitic track. Are you going to ban The Merchant of Venice? Are you going to stop it

01:18:18--> 01:18:44

and strip it from being sold? Are you going to take it and make it non available? The hypocrisy is ludicrous. You don't go back and sanitize history just because you don't like it. Even if you don't like it. It needs to be taught and explained and clarified that as a matter of principle, that is what liberalism stands on. And when it comes to every faith other than Islam they have folded when it comes to Islam, we see the double standards. That's the first point. Second point.

01:18:45--> 01:19:10

The accusations of anti semitism need to be addressed head on. They need to be addressed head on. And we need to stop being so defensive. Let us be frank and honest here. study history of Muslims be educated. anti semitism is a European phenomenon. It's not a Muslim phenomenon. It never existed in Muslim lands up until 1947.

01:19:12--> 01:19:31

anti semitism is something that began in Europe by Christians, and it was prevalent throughout their history and it is still around to this day. Muslims were never anti semitic. Yes, it is true. shehryar has a highly Kitab and Muslim but advocate hub includes EU,

01:19:33--> 01:19:37

Christians and Jews and there's a slightly diversity it's not anti semitism.

01:19:38--> 01:20:00

Historically speaking, Muslims and Jews historically had much more in common and they will always bind together against the one who would persecute them and that is the French the room the Franks. The Christians, historically, Muslims and Jews had a much stronger relationship than Muslims and Christians and Jews and Christian

01:20:00--> 01:20:46

Historically speaking, without exaggeration, the greatest minds of the Jewish tradition, pre modernity, all of them are found in Muslim lands, all of them starting from Baghdad, and ancient Iran and underdose. And Egypt, you have the greatest minds coming including shop tides, V in Ottoman lands, they could not do what they did. In Muslim lands, they could not do it in Europe. Every time the Christians persecuted the Jews, Muslims opened their doors the last time 1492 when the Muslims were expelled from Granada, the Sultan of the Ottoman land said, You Europeans are fools, the Jews are intelligent people. They're useful, why don't you come and he invited all of them and mass to

01:20:46--> 01:21:26

come and live in Muslim lands. And that is why throughout the Muslim world, the largest sorry, throughout the world, the largest population of Jews before 1947, were in Muslim lands, in Yemen, in Iraq, in Morocco, in Egypt, these were where the Jews were. So this whole notion of Muslims being anti Semite, by the very people who defended by the very people who invented anti semitism, please Muslims, educate yourselves. Don't fall for all of this stuff. Okay. Also, so that's historically speaking, also. Now let's get head on. Okay, so we talked about historically. Thirdly, let's get to the issue. Okay. Well, the Hadith do mention killing, let's be honest, here. They are, they do

01:21:26--> 01:21:28

mention them. Jay, they do mention them.

01:21:30--> 01:21:36

Let us realize these ahaadeeth. They are predictions, not prescriptions.

01:21:38--> 01:22:17

Big difference, their predictions, not prescriptions. They're telling you what's going to happen. They're not telling you it is allowed to do it. So if you believe in these predictions, you believe that stones are going to talk, I believe they're going to talk. But the people who criticizes don't? If you don't believe 90% of it, then why are you believing the 10% these are predictions of the end of times of Armageddon and what's going to happen, the apocalypse lifts the end of the world, if you believe that trees are going to talk, if you believe there's something called the Antichrist, if you believe there's something called the coming of Christ, well, then, if you really believe that fight

01:22:17--> 01:22:57

on the side of truth, not in sight of evil and the story, if you don't believe it, these Hadeeth are not telling Muslims to do anything, is describing what's going to happen towards the end of times. And therefore, if you choose the side of good and not the side of evil, you're not going to have this issue. So the bottom line, we don't have to worry about this charge of anti semitism, we need to educate ourselves and challenge it head on. These are not anti semitic Hadeeth whatsoever. It's merely describing a battle towards the end of times the forces of good the forces of evil. Those who choose the forces of evil will have to suffer the consequences. Simple as that you don't believe in

01:22:57--> 01:23:37

this battle, then don't quote 10th 10th phrase or 10 words and ignore the 100 word howdy don't quote that one phrase about the tree is going to say and ignore the whole context. That's being hypocritical. No scholar Dr. Shetty out from this. And again, to be brutally honest and blunt here. When the Holocaust was taking place, in multiple places in the world, Muslim stood up to defend Muslims stood up to help those that were being persecuted. This is a fact the Muslims of France, the Muslims of Morocco play multiple places, they helped the Jewish people. And I have visited those places, Auschwitz and Doha and others. And I will tell you, honestly, and this is a reality that

01:23:37--> 01:24:14

alone knows, if I were alive at that timeframe, I would have thought it is something that Allah will reward to me if I were to protect these believers from the evil that was taken believers in a low overall from the evil that is taking place. What happened afterwards. 1948 onwards is not related to what happened before. If you were alive in 1940. You saw what is happening to this persecuted raise men, women and children being killed indiscriminately, it would be a part of our emaan to protect the innocent from this evil force of Nazi Hitlerism, that that's something that I firmly believe whether you agree or not, is besides the point the point being we need to challenge this notion of

01:24:14--> 01:24:44

anti semitism. It is not anti semitic these are Hadith are predicting the future not prescribing law right now. law tells us we protect minorities. That's what law tells us even in an ideal Islamic state history proves that we protected those minorities history proves that though they flourished they would flourish under the lands of Islam, like they did not flourish until the advent of modernity in Europe, they were not allowed to do what they were

01:24:45--> 01:24:59

in Muslim lands. So we deny this accusation of anti semitism from it's complete, as we said, number one, the issue of hypocrisy and double standards. Number two, historically speaking, where did anti semitism come from number three, the

01:25:00--> 01:25:43

Muslims and the Jews in the relationship number four, these are these are these are these are descriptions of the future predictions and not and not what prescriptions not prescribing what is to be done. So there is no anti semitism whatsoever. And we Muslims cannot be anti Semites because our Prophet system was a Semite. Ibrahim was a Semite. The majority of Semites are Muslims. How can Muslims be anti Semites? Yes, we can be anti Zionists and we are anti Zionist. But we are not people who hate Jews and Christians know there's a difference between Judaism and Zionism. Muslims, be careful, never criticize Judaism and mass unless there's theology, we can criticize aspects of

01:25:43--> 01:26:10

theology, Jews there are good and bad people amongst them Christians good and bad Zionism as a movement. You have Christian Zionist as we explained, you have Jewish Zionist you have atheist Zionist, and we criticize Zionist but not people of other faith traditions their advocate up with that time is up and shallow today. We'll continue next Wednesday, about the new Zoo of Isa and the issues of race and then move on to the other major science while for the 111 item. He was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
