salatu salam ala rasulillah.
Here woman Well, my bad. So, last week's session generated a lot of discussion, I got bombarded with emails,
other theories, alternative views. And I thought that it would be useful then to pause for a second before we resume the narrative. And to kind of unpack and discuss why
I am hesitant to go down this road of metaphorical or symbolic interpretation. As we mentioned, there are interpretations
advocated by very famous online personalities. There's a very famous preacher somewhere in the Caribbean islands. And since he's still alive, I'd rather not mention his name, I don't like to there's nothing personal. I don't know the brother of the sheriff, I have nothing against him. I wish him all the best. But I don't like to have anything personal like this. If a person has passed on, we can mention his name. So for example, Dr. Assad Imad, may Allah have mercy on him, a great thinker from Pakistan, he as well had his interpretation of jujin George, that I am well aware of. And I respectfully disagree with these political interpretations that Yeah, George and George,
essentially become superpowers of our times and the job becomes some type of globalization force. Maybe it's the World Economic Forum, maybe it is the global bank, IMF or something of this nature. And I understand there's a lot to criticize about the IMF. But it's not the the job that the Profit System predicted. Okay, I understand. We're angry at the superpowers and we have a lot to criticize. But that's not yet jujin judgment and that's my humble opinion. Now, why? Why am I hesitant to go down this route? I will explain and this is a bit of a tangent, but it is a very important theological tangent that is necessary to understand not just judgment date, not just a shot the SAT
but also the Quran and Sunnah overall. You see, our methodology is to understand the Quran and Sunnah at face value. We don't believe the Quran and Sunnah is speaking to us in riddles. We don't believe the Quran and Sunnah is symbolic. When Allah says x, he doesn't mean x, he means y. No, we don't do this. We say when Allah says x, he means x. This is the standard mainstream interpretation of Islam. Why? Because to claim that any speaker, any speaker, when he means x, he doesn't mean x. When he says x he doesn't mean x is is one of three reasons. Number one, the speaker is uninformed. He makes a mistake. The speaker says the capital of France is wrong. He doesn't know any better, he
makes a mistake. Number two, the speaker knows the truth but wants to deceive you. This is ill intentioned. So either the speaker is ignorant, or the speaker has an evil intention. Or the speaker made an honest mistake or cannot communicate properly. They don't have the grasp of the language. So the words they're using, they're not imparting the wisdom that they have in their minds. Otherwise, if the speaker knows his stuff, and the speaker desires, sincerity and truth, and the speaker is eloquent, then what the speaker says is what is understood by the audience you see what I'm saying here? Allah subhana wa Tada.
does not lie. Woman a supplemental Latina woman or stock woman Allahu
Allah subhana wa tada I learn who you are, the more the lady with Shahada, Allah Allah Allah Habib and Allah subhanho wa Taala has the best of all speech.
No one speaks better than obviously, hydrocodone. That is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah mentions the Quran as being really sending out or being mobian it is in clear out of it. And Allah says in that as an output and an AVI Allah Allah, we have revealed the Quran in Arabic so that you can understand it. So Allah is saying I set it in Arabic so that you can understand not so that you can read in symbols not so that you can read in other things. So to claim that what a
Law says is not intended is to claim that the Quran is a fairy tale. The Quran is fables. And this is not the claim of the Muslim This is the claim of those who rejected Islam. Allah says in the Quran when the Quran is recited to them, they say in how they Lesotho welline these are myths of old, these are myths of old. So, we now have some people saying, Oh demin Hawa these are mythological figures, and the origin is simply narrating a fable. Now, the issue of evolution and the origin This is another topic, inshallah, it is my goal to talk about one day, but my point is some Muslims who want to preserve the Quran, they say, so how do we reconcile they have a philosophy
what is that philosophy? Adam was in a real person, a lot of xojo knows there's no such thing as Adam, but you see the mind of that seventh century Arabian mindset. Allah is communicating with that mindset by talking about the fables that they knew. Now, why is this problematic? It is problematic because the accusation is that our truth of Allah Allah is intentionally deceiving.
The Quran doesn't say it's a fable. You see, when a lawyer wants to set up a metaphor, Allah says, Baba Allahu Allah, Allah is giving you an example, when a loan wants to set a parable, a simile, when a loan wants to give you a metaphor, he says it, he says it I'm giving you an example. This is the example. And when Allah is telling you a story from the past. Then Allah says, these orange a se these orange fables, this is the truth, in Nadella will cost us will help. These costs are true, Allah says, So when somebody comes along and says, oh, Adam, and Eve is a fable, it's not real.
Then you are accusing rubella with a Billa the Quran of lying or love lying, and the honor of being full of fables. Now, the exact same philosophy goes for these signs of judgment date, the exact same philosophy, because it is the same book. And if Allah and His Messenger say something about the future, that is very clear about what they are saying, then the default is that it is interpreted in a literal manner. Because here's another problem. When we open this door,
where do we stop? If we say the Quran is symbolic? If we say the Quran is full of symbols, then what if somebody says Oh, that means the Shetty is also symbolic. Salah is not really Salah hedges not really hedge Psalm is not really Psalm. And there are interpretations of Islam in the non mainstream groups. You know, the, for example, the smiley and izadi group, for example, those who those of you who know, you know, the smiley groups in Indian Pakistan, that famous federal court that we are all aware of in our homelands. They have a metaphorical interpretation of the Sharia. So they say and I'm not
trying to make fun of them telling you the fact this is truth. Hajj, is not to go to the Kaaba, it is to see the Imam.
You see, they say, you Muslims, the mainstream Muslims, you take the Quran, literally, Hajj is not to go to the house of Allah hedges to visit the Imam, that the Hajj, whoever visits, the Imam has done the hedge. And the Psalm is this and so they interpret the organic Islam, metaphorically. Now, those of you that want to go down this route with signs of Judgment Day, what would you say to them? They will say, well, we're doing exactly what you're doing.
People have gone even more than this. Heaven and Hell don't really exist, this states of the mind is metaphorical. There is no actual Heaven and Hell, this is just something that Allah is speaking to people that don't have any intelligence, Allah speaking to backward, this is their thing. They claim to be Muslim. By the way, I'm not making this up. There are famous people and the other center was one of them, for example, then again, that's a deep topic that, you know, maybe one day we'll get to it, but even seen it was of this mindset, he literally felt there's no such thing as heaven and hell. It's something that Allah is telling it to these backward people, they don't know any better.
These are fables, and farabi is also of this nature. So the point is that when you open this door, when you open this door, there is no end to it. Now, does this mean that there is no eloquence in metaphorical language at all? And here is where we get to the the conundrum of obviously mainstream Muslims say of course, there's an element of eloquence, sometimes there is a metaphorical phrase, that's how we speak. We say in English, he was caught red handed, and caught red handed means what? he's guilty, okay. It doesn't mean his hand was red. Okay. We say that, oh, he had a hand in that he had a hand in that means he was involved in the affair. We use some type of metaphor here. So
obviously, there's some type of metaphor to what level this is a much more
deeper question. And if you know anything about Islamic theology about al Qaeda, you know that this was the main issue of controversy throughout our history regarding to what level? Do we understand Allah's attributes, literally. And we have one, one movement that took everything literally, we have the exact opposite the more Tesla who took everything metaphorically, we had another group that felt itself being middle ground, we'll take some metaphorically and others literally. And that's the whole question that
involves theology. My point is, when it comes to the science of Judgment Day, I'm willing to concede maybe one phrase that might make sense to use that as a metaphor is used as a metaphor. For example, when you say the phrase, he was caught red handed, it is a well known expression, it is something that is understood that it means he was guilty.
But when you have dozens of I attend a hadith describing the judge and judge describing the judge describing what the judge is going to do. And you say all of this has metaphorical. That is a big danger. Hence why I personally am willing to allow a little bit of imagination. So for example, when the profitsystem said,
a hole of this size has been opened in the wall between us and Georgia merge, I'm willing, I'm willing to say, this could be a type of simile or metaphor that we are a little bit closer to the Georgia merge, it doesn't have to mean because, you know, we can say Oh, he's a little bit closer, we make a sign with our hands. We don't literally mean this closer. We can get this point across and it is understood. So for example, that had these I'm willing to negotiate with and say because you heard my interpretation that I personally am very skeptical because the Quran and Sunnah we can easily argue does not mention yet jujitsu Judo is still around. It is true. That has been the
historical understanding. I'll be the first to admit that. But I believe as I said last week, a rethinking is an order given that it is somewhat problematic to believe this in our times.
And Allah knows best so that's the first issue metaphorical language that I simply am not willing to go down this route of saying all of your Jamba Juice is metaphorical. All of the john is metaphorical, because that opens up a very dangerous door number one, number two, it goes against what the Quran and Sunnah says about
the Quran and Sunnah describes itself as being eloquent as being that which is understood that which is revealed in Arabic so that you can understand our Prophet system said, I have been given the best and the most concise of all speech, he is upset without I'll be with him, he is the most eloquent of out of an adjunct amongst human beings. So to say that, oh, he didn't know what he was saying, is a very big problem. And it opens up theological problems that I'm not willing to go down. Jay, this is the first issue.
The second issue that some people brought to my attention that a group of people who have left Islam,
they also saw these videos of mine, and they are using them to then say, look, you know, this is a person who is openly acknowledging that Yeah, Gemma Jews is a problematic issue, then they are saying that if these stories make no sense, then why are you still a Muslim? They're trying to preach to other people to leave Islam. And they said, they say, just like you would find stories of other faith groups problematic of this nature, and you would say, this clearly shows their faith is wrong. Why then do you not have the same bravery and courage of your own faith and say, Look, these are stories and fables, and why do you believe in them? And the response is that
we have a far deeper issue than simply Juju, Juju, and that is answering the question, why are you a Muslim? What brings a man to your heart?
Is it the story of Judaism or Jews? Are you a Muslim because of the story of the origin?
Obviously, no. Why are you a Muslim? We are a Muslim, because we have the clean that a lot is true, that the Quran is true, that the Prophet says is true. Okay, how do you have that yaqeen we have yaqeen because now we get to the deeper issue. And I'll just gloss over this. And that is the fact that Islam answers the big questions of life in a way that no other faith tradition does. The simplicity of the kenema the simplicity of La ilaha illa Allah, no other faith tradition has it. The goal of life, the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the revelation of the Quran, the power of the Quran, the impact of the Quran, the preservation of the Quran, the beauty of the Koran, the
eloquence of the Koran, the content of the Quran, the the the message of the prophets of Allah sentiment, his whole life, his sincerity, the success of this single man to come in seventh century Arabia and change the
entire course of history in a way that no human has ever done. Every single one of the big questions is answered by Islam, the Quran, Allah, the ophira morality, all of this is answered now Islam is a package deal. And within this package deal, there are tertiary issues. I'm not gonna say illogical, I will say, I have used the word super irrational, not super rational. By the way, super su pra super rational means beyond the scope of rationality, the mind can neither confirm nor deny. And there are many examples. resurrection of the soul, the resurrection of the body, it is not illogical, but neither is it necessarily logical. It's beyond the existence of angels. Is this
something that is logical? You can prove from the mind Yes or no? No. But is it illogical? No. It's Supra rational beyond rationality, because there's a realm that the mind does not operate in, it's blank. And the problem of the philosophers and the problem of these pseudo intellectuals, they feel the mind can operate in any arena. And that's false belief. And yet jus genma juge is one of those areas. It's not logical, I will admit,
can we salvage the tradition and make it neither logical OR illogical? That's what I tried to do. last lesson, make it beyond the scope of reason and produce a theory that, okay, we're faithful to the text. And we're still admitting or believing in the judge and judge Now, why then, the person will say this person who doesn't believe in Islam, they will say, Why then do you believe in these fables if they don't make any sense? And the response is, because these stories these are on and sooner, they come in the tradition we have here clean in, we have your cane, because of other factors, not because of your origin. Once we have your pain, then we will accept everything that
tradition comes with, because they are clean is not built on these tertiary matters. And we quote here, I will walk up to San Diego to LA one, when
the courage came to him and said, Do you believe your companion says he went to Jerusalem and came back in one night? Now? It's not logical for a person of that timeframe to go to Jerusalem and come back on one night? Neither is it impossible. Neither is it simply beyond it's bizarre. It's a typical, but neither is it rational nor is it irrational. It is definitely a miracle. And even his Sham says in his Syrah, some people have weak Iman. They were troubled by this. There was some problems like what
the in some new Congress or whatever they're like, what do we do? He went one night and came back. That's so weird. What did the workers say? And why is he called us? What did he say?
If he said it is true, why did I will close the deal say that because his eemaan in the Profit System was not based upon his own marriage.
It was based upon yaqeen I know this man, I know he's sincere. I've seen sincerity from him. From day one. I have seen the miracles I've heard the Koran, I believe in Allah subhana wa Tada, when it can also add as a Muslim, our heart is at peace, our our culture has sikita, our carbon, our Fedora, and our eemaan going together, and we know deep to the core that Islam is true. Once we know Islam to be true, we come across the story that is perhaps problematic,
we will have to deal with it with a man in our hearts. If you don't have a man in your heart, which is what these motives basically are, then obviously everything of this nature will only increase your doubt, and nothing is to be done about them. So mon book monomial formula, your journal formula yochanan. And the fact of the matter is, and I've said this before, and I don't it's not my intent to mock that group of people, but will lie I cannot help but say those who reject Islam and become agnostic or atheist. They ended up with even more nonsensical beliefs than Yeah, jojen merge. I mean, the most obvious of which is the claim that this entirely perfectly synchronized, meticulously
balanced ecosystem and life as we know it, it just came about out of nothing. To me, that is a far bigger fairy tale than believing in Jiu Jitsu jujin amount of that we don't understand. You see what I'm saying here, right, to reject Islam
brings about infinitely more complex problems than to believe in Islam and say, I don't fully understand it,
which is essentially what I'm saying from last week that I don't have 100% foolproof mechanism. I at the end gave two answers. Number one, yeah, George and George, are tribes that will come
Towards the end of time that are descended from those original that will coordinate locked up. Okay, that's a totally valid and legit answer. And I don't have any problem with that number two, which caused some consternation, and understandably, some mockery and whatnot. And remember, I projected it to my friend's mouth. And I said, it's there. But I didn't use any word, a lot of people using a particular word. I did not use any word I simply said, this could be a group of people that they are human and net yet not quite human. That's all that I said. And if you look at the characteristics, Allahu Allah, but some things do make sense. That's all that I said, I did not choose any particular
word because obviously using a word, categorizes it into a genre of literature and movies that I'm not, I'm not comparing exactly, I'm simply saying there could be groups of people that something is wrong with them mentally, emotionally. And that might be a case because there are indications that that is the case. And Allah subhana wa tada knows best. So these are the two points I wanted to mention. Before we move on about the science of Judgment Day. So to summarize, so that we're on the same wavelength Michelle lozada. To summarize the last four or five lectures in two paragraphs.
Towards the end of times, after all of the minor science have basically finished, there will come a series of massive wars that will engulf the world, there will be a lot of wars. In particular in the regions of the modern era and the modern a sham, there will be a lot of wars, and this will culminate in a three way civil war between the Arma three parties will be fighting between the oma and this civil war between the oma will eventually reach the Hejaz province and eventually reach Makkah itself. So the wars between Muslims will envelope that region and the holy lands itself will become involved. During this timeframe, a person will rise up that people are looking to for
leadership, he lives in Medina at this point in time, and for whatever circumstance you will run for his life to MCC, and he will not have any protection. And for whatever reason, one of the powerful of these triple armies will try to kill this person by sending an army to the cabinet itself. And when they send the army to the cabinet itself, that is when the miracle of miracles will happen, and the army will be destroyed without any human interference. At this point in time, it appears the Muslim Ummah will recognize this person to be the mighty, now the signs have been met. So it appears even though nothing is explicit, that the oma will no longer fight amongst itself, that the MA D
will then unify the oma
and in my reading and interpretation and it's all he had intended today, that unification will not happen until the MACD In fact, the melodies main purpose is to unify the oma because how can you now not believe in the MACD when the sign has happened and the Kaaba has been protected, you know, in front of you. So the MACD will now take charge. And rather than civil war between the oma there will be wars between civilizations, Muslims, and other civilization. And the Hadith mentioned at least two massive wars, the one of them with the Muslims and the Romans on one side and a third party on the other. So the Muslims and the bunny last fall, or the room will be on one side, and there will
be a common enemy on the other side. And this will be a massive war and the Muslims and the Romans will be victorious. Then, soon after this one, there will be inner fighting between the room and the Muslims. And there will then be yet another massive war between these two groups around this time or shortly after. Now the people the Muslims know that john is about to come, the signs are there. So anytime something happens, there will be rumors that john is out the john is out. And most of these rumors obviously will be false because you're only going to come once and during one particular timeframe. According to one narration after the conquest of Constantinople and this is slightly
problematic because we're going to come to the rumor will come that the Jarl has come So, they will come back to their base and their base is where where will their base be.
The mask has been a sham overall and damage Kabila the Sham that will be their base without the Sham, they will rush back to damage and they will find out the rumors are false. And within a day or two or a short period of time, actually the john will come.
So when they find the rumors to be false, now the gel has actually come down. And once that the gel will come he will spend as the President said 40 days if you want to interpret it literally because here's again, this is one of those ahaadeeth even the Sahaba were cryptic, mystified, what do you mean is that day a day an actual year, what not if you want to interpret it either Vahidi upon his actual time, then in reality, the job will be here for around two and a half years. Or I'm sorry, not to enough a year in two and a half months sorry.
A year and two and a half months, if you want to say the first day is one year, the second day is one month, the third day is one week, and then the rest of the 37 days is 37 days. If you interpret it like that, then the digital will be on this earth for around a year and two and a half months, not a too long period, but it will be the worst wars known to man and nobody will be able to kill the job, even though they might kill some of the just forces as we said, but the jailer himself will not be able to be killed. And after a year and two and a half months when the Maddy is leading Salatin federal in Damascus in the Umayyad mosque, Isa will come down towards the end of times, and
Risa will then lead so that'll fudger sorry, Teresa will come down at Salah to the federal time he will tell them that Italy's as a fresher and then that army will within a day or two as soon as Isa comes the president said he will make for him like a spear makes for its target, he will rush towards the job. As soon as Easter comes down. After Southern treasure, they will rush towards the job and Damascus to Jerusalem in that timeframe might even be done in an hour or or definitely within a day or two. So as soon as reset comes, that tribulation will be gone with because the gel will be killed and all those who are still fighting at this point in time. If you are still fighting
on the side of the job, there is no hope for you, you will not you will not be saved because the signs are too clear as we said you have chosen darkness over light you have chosen evil over truth so there will be no hope for you and there is a very interesting narration that some have made authentic and I mentioned it briefly I want to pause here and mention it again. This is a hadith and a Buddhahood and Muslim by Mohammed
and the scholars have different is authentic or not your body makes it authentic and others make it slightly weak. The head it goes as follows narrated from why they've been shoveled or moron obey till mark this horrible yesterday was horrible yesterday. Horrible Mel hammer. Well hello Jill Mel hammer federal customs Linnea will fetch Helston tinea aurojit the jar. So, a number of things are mentioned one after the other number one, the building up of the beta lock this is the destruction of Medina, he called it yesterday and that is number one. Number two, the destruction of yesterday is the beginning of the civil wars the Metal Hammer the Armageddon. Number three, the Armageddon is
the beginning of the conquest of Constantinople. And number four, the conquest of Constantinople is the coming of the john. Okay. Now,
this Hadeeth if it is authentic,
it raises the issue which is slightly problematic and that is Romano beta mock this horrible yesterday the building up of virtual mock This is the destruction or the demolition of yesterday and this is problematic insofar as the traditions mentioned as we're going to come to if not today, the next Wednesday inshallah, that yesterday or Medina will be destroyed
after yet jujin module.
So how then can before that Jamal Medina be destroyed during the sound the problem
baytril mock this being constructed is the destruction of effort. One way to interpret this is firstly what is the construction of between democritus and Milan will be to mock this. This clearly means that Bates will mock this Jerusalem ox saw
is becoming either one of two interpretations either a civilization pay heed in light of what is happening or a Muslim civilization because you're a moron means to build a model your middle enemy Yamato masajid ally, and Murano beetle muchness the construction or the building or the civilization of Baden lochness, it doesn't say by Muslims or non Muslims. So either it is a generic building up of Beethoven, Bach this that that land becomes the land of civilization, a land of strength, allowing the power and it is clearly in our times a land of whatever however angry what is going on, we cannot deny, all you need to do is look at the top 100 fortune 500 companies, whatever how many
are based over there, their economy, their scientists, whatnot, and also the number of people living there and and, and, and Allah knows but or we can say and what I'll do Bateson mock this by the Muslims, and that's going to take place after the killing of that job. Either way, timeframe is similar, that is going to signal the destruction or the heartthrob of yesterday. Now, the only way that if this idea is authentic is that we say the
building up of Jerusalem will signal the beginning of the end of Medina but not the actual end of Medina because the actual end of Medina will come towards the very end of times. So some things are happening, that Medina will become empty and empty and empty.
And this will begin with the construction or the embodiment of beta and muchness. Now, the destruction or the herb of Medina is the male hammer the Armageddon that much is clear because the MADI is coming from Medina. His followers will come from Medina, the met the the prophet SAW Selim said when the Mohammed takes place, some of the best people on earth will leave Medina to go to sham. So there's going to be civil war and the Muslim has realized we need to fight against the job. So Medina will be emptied and emptied and emptied. And so this also makes sense. Well, hello jhilmil hammer federalist, Alenia,
the beginning of the Armageddon is the conquest of Constantinople. This means that, and this is my interpretation from two weeks ago and last week, the Armageddon the Metal Hammer isn't just one war, it is a series of wars, because the conquest of Constantinople is one of the words of the Metal Hammer is taking place within the Armageddon. So the Armageddon or the Metal Hammer isn't just one battle. Yes, there will be the final battle, no doubt between the ISA and the jug that is the end of the Armageddon, there will be one or two very big battles, like the process of said out of 199 will die that is one of those battles, the Euphrates River will uncover its gold that is another battle.
All of these are some of the bigger battles but in my interpretation of the idea that this is my dad and I could be wrong. It doesn't appear that the Metal Hammer is one battle and this idea proves it because
there will be battles after Constantinople and yet the Prophet system is saying hello Gil Mel hammer fratello Custom tinea the beginnings of the Mel hammer is the conquest will signal the conquest of Constantinople and then the conquest of Constantinople will fetch Balochistan tinea hydrojet, the judge will signal the coming of the the judge, so the judge will come then Risa will come then Lisa will kill the judge. As soon as Isa kills the judge barely has the day gone maybe even the same day, or they haven't even rested fully. That's what the Hadith says they have not even recovered. So we can say three days, seven days but definitely not a few months. Without even recovery. Immediately
jujitsu or Judo will be sent out. And that is when Allah will inspire Isa, that a group of creation. Reba Lee and this is a very key key phrase here. One of my creations have come out some of my creation. What are they? As we said, we don't know. There is no human power that can fight them. This is what the Hadith says. Don't even think about fighting them. And as I said, this is very interesting because even for the jungle, Muslims are fighting his army.
If people can fight the army of the judge, why can't they fight the judge? judge? That's I've talked about that last week. So Lisa is told go and flee with my followers go with the righteous people and hide, and so they will hide for how long we do not know, until finally they're about to starve to death. And so he said, begs Allah subhana wa Taala for help. And that is when Allah miraculously deals with the hydrogen merge. Firstly, by eliminating all of them instantaneously. One thing comes one, whatever happens, something attacks them at the neck, and instantaneously simultaneously, all of them are killed. Secondly, the Muslims come out the stench is overwhelming, etc, etc, they make
dua to Allah, so then Allah gets rid of their corpses as well. And so the earth is cleansed by a rain by the birds etc, etc. Now, let us begin from where we left off enough. So now we are from where we left off. After Yeah, George and George, there shall be a period of luxury and peace, the likes of which this world has never seen since the beginning of time.
The amount of peace and luxury that will take place our profits as I mentioned, that one aroma no one grapefruit or one pomegranate will suffice an entire tribe and one shank of lamb will be eaten by an entire subdivision of a city. In other words, the earth will give like never before, and in one version, it says that the snakes will play with the toddlers and the lions and the and the the wolves that let the wolves will play with the lambs, for example, these phrases are found.
What we see in this is that after all of that fighting years and years of the job, and yet Juju Mojo and whatnot, and we don't want to be alive when that happens, those that live through, Allah will give them some peace.
And this is the son that Allah huffy healthy, in
Russia use Russia in democracies run in them and are still useless. This is the son of a law. Those people that saw the worst of the worst and we do not want to be amongst them, we should seek refuge in a law from living to see the job, not to be like him and fitted netted the jar we don't want to be around when the gel comes, we don't want to be here. But if those people that are here are here, and they managed to eke through those years of turmoil and trial, that generation, then they shall be blessed, like no other generation has been blessed since the beginning of time. How long will this timeframe be?
Some ahaadeeth mentioned seven years and are these these seven years to another Allah knows best?
But there will be a few years and this is proven
by our Prophet sallallahu I sent him saying what law he he gave a custom to Allah.
You shall perform hajj and O'Meara to the Gabba even after your Georgian judge.
That's these years now.
Now the fact that you're performing hajj and is performing means is more than one hedge. For a few years, there shall be peace in this world. No fighting, no two people will fight one another. Can you believe that has never happened since have been copied
has never happened. But Allah will bless those people when they have seen how evil war is. For those years. No two people will ever have an argument call us utter peace on this earth.
Now unfortunately, what we learn with that peace and stability, some people's hearts or maybe the next generation that is born or what not. Their hearts will become hard and Lachie man, and we'll explain why in a while. But these years will be the best years of all of mankind. But we don't want to live to see them because we have to go through something to see them. And eventually something will happen or Isa will either die or whatnot or Maddie will die. We don't know when by the way. And by the way, there are legends found that Isa are the ns we can say sallallahu wasallam for Isa we can search for him oh look at all of this is a lot for Isa and for any righteous person by the way.
Isa Rahim mahalo tada and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no problem shell according to some reports, die a natural death and be buried in the hedger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Medina where do we get this from? By the way? This is not an authentic hadith, but there are such a hadith of them is the hadith of Abdullah having lived in a house which is not authentic. I'ma come to that, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said
in Zulu, he said the embodiment of the ISA will come down to this earth, faith is a word you will get married, will you will do the who and children will be born to him. William hotel, Hampson What about ADA Center, and he will live for 45 years, he was taken up at the age of 33. So he will live till he's 45. So, another 30 years or so, and this would make sense with all that we have said, so my moods fade funa Murphy cabri then he shall die, and he shall be buried with me in my upper then I and II 70. Model yam will stand up together and between us will between Abubakar and Omar now, this hadith is reported in a number of very, very obscure books that none of you would have heard of,
even a bit dunia mentions it. And even though Josie and his little limited now here, and then a montage of them on top of them and and wafaa. And all of them say that this hadith is very weak, it is very weak. Some of this aid is even one color. So it's not an authentic because there's a very well known person in there by the name of Abdul Rahman alaphilippe, who was known to be a very weak narrator. So the Hadith is not authentic. There is a narration as soon as Timothy but it's not a heady
Abdullah ibn Salam, who is Abdullah bin Salaam,
the ex Rabbi of
Medina, he was the senior most Rabbi of Medina when the process of them came up the Libyan center there is a report in Sudan activity
you can look this up if you want is a very famous book to the middle you can find this at home and I've always encouraged you look up the books of Haiti Don't be shy to look them up and open What do you lose there they're not going to bite you read them get get connected to a tradition. Hadith number 3617. Abdullah bin Salam said
Who said I believe in Salah not
the prophet of Islam, Abdullah bin Salim said it is written in
The overall the description of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and it is written in the Torah, the description of reception Imodium, and the two of them will be buried together.
Who said this?
Abdullah Salaam it is not a
hadith Is that clear? Where is he getting it from?
His version of the total. It's clearly not around in our times, by the way, right? Because realize the Jewish out observe that time they have a different tradition altogether. their traditions and their calendar is different. We know this. Again, I'm going to my tangents here. But anyway,
they are not connected to the mainstream Jewish diaspora that was alive at the time. They have been disconnected for a few centuries or a few decades, at least a century. And so their beliefs and their books are slightly different. And that is very interesting, because then we get a window into a preserved Judaism that didn't exist in Babylon or in other places in the world or in Jerusalem, as well. But apparently, Abdullah bin Salaam has some books, handed down generation to generation that the rest of Jewish folklore doesn't have any more. And in it, he is saying, I am telling you that ERISA and Warhammer system are going to be buried together. One of the narrators of this Hadith, the
third narrative from the Libyan set out metabo tiberi. He said, and there is still a space in the Hadith of the Prophet, so system that can accommodate
everybody. Now, that is a fact. That is a fact. What is the fact that in the room of Arusha, the three bodies are this way, and there is one portion, that technically there is still space for one more body over there? That much is a fact, whether it will be reset or not. We say what do we say? Very good. You guys are learning a low item. There's nothing authentic, but Abdullah ibn Salam is no joke. He is the chief rabbi. And he is saying, I'm telling you, the two will be buried together. So Allah knows best. So
perhaps he said, we'll die a natural death and perhaps you will be buried in Medina. Or perhaps that is not going to happen. Now what's going to happen with the followers of Isa, the righteous Muslims, this is where the end of times the actual end of times begins, and it will begin with a very peaceful ending. What is that peaceful ending? So hey, Muslim reports, Abu hurayrah, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah will send a wind from Yemen that is softer than silk.
That shall not leave anyone that has an ounce of Eman in his heart, except that he shall pass away peaceful death.
Howdy, this is a Muslim.
A wind will come from Yemen, beautiful fragrance. Sweet, it will be gentler than silk. And when the people smell it, if they have a man, they will die. A peaceful, unnatural death.
And if they don't have you, man,
they're still gonna be there. Jay, now what do you think is going to happen? When in the whole earth? Nobody of human is left.
What do you think is going to happen?
This is what our prophets have said that after this point in time, idolatry will return to the Arabs and by Arabs, he meant the children of the Muslims because when you said out of bag, then you meant a Muslim as well. That and he mentioned specific tribes, they said the women, their bodies will be doing pull off around the tribes of the ancient and the people he said will become worse than baja and worse than animals. And they will copulate in public like donkeys. That's what the prophet says. And I'm saying that might happen. Now, this hadith is mentioned as pre karma and as also end of clamor. So Allah knows best it appears that there will be a time where fire show will be prevalent
even before the MADI and then there will be a time that will become even more prevalent before the actual trumpet is going to be blown. Now, if there are no Muslims, what will happen to the Kadima what will happen to the Salah, what will happen to the Koran? What will happen to all of these Abdullah bin Massoud set
a time will come a night will come that the entire Koran will be taken back by Allah subhana wa tada the people will wake up and the must haves will be blank
and there will be no one with the Quran in their hearts.
is a report in Muslim a daddy me?
In another version he said to his students, make sure you read the Quran before it is taken away.
The students said, Oh teacher, these must haves How can they be taken away? and asked her father, how can it be taken away?
And even Mr. Rhodes said, a night will come when the Quran will be taken away, and nobody will remain who can recite a single verse and they will even forget that Illa Illa law
and they will speak the speech of Jaya helliya means they're going to talk with the fascia vulgarity evil stuff. And this is when Allah azza wa jal statement one either walk I'll hold ya him or her Shinola Honda, but the minute limo and NASA can be added to your opinion. This is what the numbers add to. This is when this statement is going to happen. What is this statement it talks about the beast and we'll talk about the beast in sha Allah. Definitely not today we're gonna get to that in sha Allah in our next class or the next Wednesday shuttling
in another version. And another version
in Massoud said that the Koran will be taken away in one night in one night. And not a single verse will be left in the hub of any servant and not a single must have will remain with the speech on it and the people will wake up like animals now. It is pretty obvious therefore that you put the previous Hadith and this one together. The day that that wind blows is the day the Quran will be
forgotten, not forgotten but gone. And even those had memorized some sutras or verses but they weren't mins
they will wake up the next day and they will remember nothing and the physical printed must have they will become empty. Nothing will be there.
What will happen to the Kadima
Sahih Muslim and assembly Malik said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
la tomasa had you all to fill out a law a law
This is a Muslim Koyama will not take place. The Yama will not take place until no one says on this earth, a law a law. Think about that. This is a hadith in Sahih Muslim the Yama will not take place until nobody says Allah is gone.
Will you have a builder When will that happen? Obviously after the wind comes but if the man said
you the Rasul Islam, Islam will be wiped away. There are so you There are so heavy means to wipe away just like a garment that is continually worn is worn out until no one will know what is slim. And what is Salah. And what is hedge and what is sada it's Pinilla Salah is going to be gone sadhaka gone has gone everything gone.
Islam will be wiped away until no one knows what anything is. And in one night, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be wiped away as well until Not a single ayah remains. Now, this is very interesting because this is a familiar man seeing it from the Prophet system. And even Massoud also said it from himself. The to put together clearly shows this is an authentic thing. Okay, this is from preferably mansingh I heard it from the Prophet system. The previous narrations, Eben Massoud is just saying like It is however, if you remember, what did we say when a Sahabi says something about the knowledge of the unseen What do we say? It becomes a headache. When a Sahabi says
something about knowledge of the unseen This is even more shrewd describing judgment date, automatically it gets a free upgrade to a heartbeat as we said, because how does you know Judgement Day? What does he know about how does he know to unless he's confident promises them? So are they for said and a night will come where the whole Koran will be taken away. And there shall be remaining a small group of people, a [???]hole cabbie, Walmart as well as choose an elderly man or an elderly lady, very old people. And they will reminisce and they will say we remember our forefathers saying that in a in the law, but we don't know what it means.
So we also will just say it like they said it.
sila Urban zophar.
A student of her data said,
Oh, are they full? Of what use will it be that they say la ilaha illa LA and they don't know what it means, and they're not praying, and they're not fasting, and they're not giving charity and they're not going for Hajj. Now pause here. This Hadeeth is a very deep theological issue that is not related to the science of judgment date. But it is very interesting because this hadith is one of the evidences use.
And I'm just going to mention it briefly. And that is, what does it mean to be a Muslim?
What does it mean to be a
Muslim? Is it enough to say you're a Muslim and not do anything?
There are so many in this land. We seek Allah's refuge, our own children and grandchildren, meaning our meaning the Muslim communities, there are so many whose parents are Mashallah the best of the best board members, imams who are coming federal salah and their sons and daughters have nothing to do with this religion whatsoever other than the title, I'm a mother, I'm a Muslim. They will not even take off Friday to come and pray Juma.
They will not even care about Iied. But if you ask them, they say oh, I will Muslim. Yes, my parents are Muslim, this is very common.
Are they Muslim?
Some of them? I said no. Some of them I said yes. And those that said, No, have a long list of evidences, those that said yes, they primarily use this hadith.
Because this is a man or an old man who was going to say he doesn't pray, he doesn't fight doesn't do anything. But he simply says, I remember my forefathers saying this word. I don't know what it means. And by the way, another tangent completely irrelevant, yet so relevant.
The Muslims who came to this land as slaves, they were not able to preserve their religion.
They were not able to preserve their Islam.
Allahu Alem, how many Muslims came, but they are in the 10s of 1000s. In the very least think about that, by the way.
In the 10s of 1000s, Muslims were brought here from West Africa, from the coasts of Africa, from what is now sending oil in these regions. They were brought here as slaves. We know so many of them are humans today, man we know. And Billa Lee, we know, we know them. We have pictures of them. We have handwritten documents in the Smithsonian, we still have or ons that they wrote from memory, we still have them in this land. These are slaves that had memorized the Quran. Some of them were odema. Some of them were princes, they came here.
And interestingly enough, this is a complete tangent, but hey, we should know this stuff. We are in the end of the day, American Muslims, and we should know our own Islamic history in this land.
A very interesting Quirk, by the way, and I'm watching the time to Ori and I did promise you q&a, everything is very shallow. Let me go into this tangent, not prepared, but it's very interesting. There was this slave owner back in the 1800s, who came across a Muslim slave
and appreciated the Islam of that slave and realized Muslims are educated. Muslims can manage finances, and Muslims are trustworthy.
So he made it a point to purchase Muslim slaves.
he had a plantation off the coast of Georgia, on an island called this appeal islands, the sapelo Islands is called. Okay, this is all history you should know.
And so, on the sapelo Islands, there was a large concentration of Muslim slaves, believe it or not,
and they would establish the Salah. They had a Masjid that is actually the first machine of America. They celebrated either How do we know this? Because the owners and the descendants of the owners kept diaries. And they talked about these Muslim slaves. And they mentioned that there was a festival in which they baked a particular cake that we now know, it was the cake that Muslims would bake on either fifth or back home and send it all or whatever, they would bake it on once a year, and they would hand it out.
This isn't the pelo islands. So this isn't the 1860s 1870s or so. Okay, obviously slavery is abolished, everything changes whatnot. Okay, so pelo islands remains disconnected from the mainland in the 1930s, Harvard University, or I should say Harvard, they sent a group of anthropologists to study the descendants of slaves, and they have a very, very extensive archive of audio video material. Audio because they wanted to preserve the accents. They wanted to preserve the history.
reportage and video footage, not just this Apollo across America, it was a very, very well researched project. And they went to the sapelo Islands as well, obviously. And they interviewed the grandchildren of those people. They interviewed people in their 80s and 90s, who have memories of their ancestors three, four generations ago.
And what you read is mind boggling
of what you read, one of these people says,
I remember I had an uncle so and so
us kids would always make fun of him because he would go to one of the corner trees and fall flat on his face a few times a day.
And another lady says, I had an aunt, that she would always say, phrases that would make us children laugh. And she said, I don't remember exactly, but something like a mother gudda gudda, she had to Allah, it begins a shmurda that's what she remembers, this isn't 1940 and she remembers one of her ancestors. She said, she my aunt, Henrietta, whatever, would always have a
something on her head. She said this, and she would always say these phrases that will make us kids laugh. And this is a lady in 19 years old. So go back, we're talking about 1860. And this is a lady now who came maybe in the 1830s. And she has a phrase that she is saying, of course these children are no longer Muslim. There's Islam is all gone, right, obviously. But this hadith reminds us of that,
that Islam is gone. But some phrase remains, so it's not just towards the end of times. Another story quickly.
This is not planned. By the way, I just want to benefit myself in all of you in a shallow
what I like about teaching in my hometown, we have no deadline. When I go somewhere else, I have a deadline I have to leave when I'm here and hamdulillah we can go on and on. If I spend another two weeks What's the problem? We can benefit each other correct, inshallah, if Allah gives us life inshallah so another interesting anecdote and story and this happened with me or I met the person
on the loose. And in sha Allah, we will have a long series of unbelief someday and shoulders, one of my favorite topics, the detailed history of under is the rise and fall of the muscles of undertows. And this is something that I met in Andalus, where there was a person who converted back in the 80s to Islam and under Lucien from some of the villages outside of Porto, but not in the main cities. Make a long story. It's a very long answer, make it short and shallow. One day, I'll tell it to in its full detail, that he was scared that his Catholic family and especially his grandmother, who was a very hardcore Catholic, would get angry at him. So he would lock the door when he prayed. When he
visited his grandmother, he would lock the door and pray.
And one day he thought he locked the door and he didn't, you know, sometimes you turn the key, and his grandmother, open the door, and he was in such awe.
And he panicked, but what are you going to do? And his grandmother sat down next to him and began to cry.
And the man became flustered, like, what am I going to do now? What am I, what do I tell my grandmother, etc, etc. He said the Salaam and then he consoled his grandmother, grandmother, don't worry, I still love you. Everything is fine. I'm normal, everything fine. And the grandmother said, No, I'm not crying. Because you converted to Islam. I'm crying because my grandmother told me that we are of those Muslim families and to preserve Islam, at least acknowledge that we are Muslim.
And I didn't do that. Like, we know, we're from the Muslim descendants. But I didn't do that and seeing you prostrate. And obviously the Muslims, I we know what it is right? It obviously put all of these emotions back into me.
So once again, we get this phrase of this, she knows she's a Muslim, she knows. But she doesn't do anything like that. Right? So there are exceptional scenarios. And back to this idea. Now, the question is, are you a Muslim, if you don't do anything,
I will give you the mainstream responses to my response as well. The general rule is that if you're living in a land of Islam, or in a land where Islam can be practiced, and you refuse to lower your head in such that even once and you refuse to fast even once, and you refuse to do anything of Islam, then mere self identification does not make you a Muslim.
However, in exceptional circumstances, like the sapelo Islands, like under those, like right now, what we're going to
To the end of the heady in those circumstances maybe there is an excuse that excuses only when you don't have access to other Muslims when you're all alone when you're persecuted in that case if you don't do anything other than say I'm a Muslim perhaps that will be enough for you and this is proven in this heading so now we come back to this idea and then we'll pause for today shallow data and give you at least six minutes for q&a inshallah.
So they first set a time will come when the Quran we lift it up, nobody will pray, nobody will fast nobody to this, his students said of what to use is to say the Kalima without doing any of these things. And her they've turned away, turned away, turned away. The third time he said, Yeah, I'll say that, oh, my student whose name is Scylla er Silla, it will save them from the fire of hell, that Kadima will save them from jahannam.
So when there's nothing left, perhaps identifying with Islam is all that is needed. But this is an exceptional situation and scenario. Now, what this also shows,
an elderly man will say, I remember my forefathers, c'est la ilaha illAllah, which means there shall be an entire generation that is raised after the wind of Yemen,
there will be at least 40 5060 years
and in that generation, the new generation that comes maybe simply knowing there's something called Islam and wanting to be it could be their excuse. But the default will be these people will be the worst of the worst. They will be animals or worse than animals. Because there is no Seiler. There is no Koran, there is no Kadima, there is no morality, they will live like animals. And we will come in Sharla next week upon this generation shall be the actual trumpet. But there's still a few more signs that need to be mentioned before the coming of the actual trumpet. Where Then shall we open the floor for questions in shallow data? Who is going to be first for three weeks? I've been
delaying questions isn't as good.
So our brother says one of the issues is to believe in the hype. Why can't we just say that? Yeah, do Jamba Juice is from the knowledge of the hype, like the angels.
valid point? Because, according to the mainstream interpretation, yeah. jujin Jews are human beings not unseen, seen. You can flesh and blood they are the children of Adam. And my point that I said last week, are we required is the Quran and Sunnah explicit and unequivocal, that there are 10s of millions of human beings living behind some wall right now as we speak. And my response was looking at the text, no. Do you understand this point? If you understand everything, but is it a dilemma? Is it something that is unambiguous? 100%, we have to believe, because, on the other hand, we have some very, very difficult scientific facts to match up with this belief.
Our religion does not tell us to be foolish.
Our religion does not tell us to discard because if we did that, we wouldn't be using our computers right now. We wouldn't be using technology. Our religion doesn't tell us to live like cavemen. we acquire knowledge and we use our intellect in a manner that Allah allows us to use the intellect. So if the Quran and Sunnah told us explicitly, that there are million people living somewhere, and we don't know where they are, that would have presented us another issue. And we would have said somewhere in Walton and in my life, but when it doesn't,
can we then rethink through even if it means that we are saying something that our previous generations of scholars did not say? And I don't have a problem with that. And that's what I posit now, if you wish to believe what
most of classical and medieval Islamic history believed, I don't have a problem with that. Like I said, What can I say that's your belief?
exactly the point I agree with you, the brother said, Now we know that that opinion cannot be true. Where did you get this from? Our knowledge of modern science, it cannot be true in my opinion, and the opinion of anybody who really understands
that's exactly what I said last week. Were you here last week? That's exactly what I said.
It is late, but at the same time when our young men
A woman comment challenges what do we do with this? We have to present an an interpretation. I could be wrong. And when it happens, we will see I don't want to see it. You guys tell me if I'm right or wrong with the camera. I don't want to see when that happens. But I'm trying to preserve the image of our youth in this interpretation. That's my goal. Sisters. Any questions going once going twice back to the brothers who spent as good? Good?
Yes, I did go over it in a lot of detail. If you can listen to my lectures online, and chat LaGuardia.
Yes, we went over to see my mother is from the descendants of the prophets of the Salem and we would say he's from heathens descended on Hussein's sisters, anyone Troy sisters, back again to the brothers has gladius.
We don't know how many times were told by Isa we do not know. Because the process of said then the conversation continued until it came to this. What did happen? We do not know. Okay, back to the others. Yes, good.
So our brother says that the signs don't seem to mention the world of the jinn. Will they also witness all of these things? Obviously, when this world comes to an end, the agenda will also come to an end in this world. So yes, the signs are the same for us and them if you're trying to allude that the Judah Madrid might be the jinn you're not trying to do that. Okay. That would be a very good and easy way to explain it. Were it not for the fact that the ahaadeeth are pretty clear that they are from the diary of Adam this hadith is in Bahati their from their children about about Islam. Okay, inshallah, I will continue our last Wednesday will be on this next week inshallah. So
now I want to
in a feed
