Maghrib / Suhbah at Private Residence
When the mine collapsed, Mawlana’s inspiration at that moment when I gave the lecture was that Grandshaykh (q) said, “There are seven jewels, diamonds in this world, and each diamond has the image of Jibreel (a) on it.” There are seven in the world and Allah knows where they are. One is with Mahdi (s). Where the miners were trapped, they were so close to reaching one of those jewels that if they had continued going further down, they would have found treasures there! They (awliya) don’t want these treasures to show up, which is why everything collapsed over their heads. And although it collapsed, it did not affect them because there was a cave and they entered that cave.
Allah (swt) said in the Holy Qur’an:
فَأْوُوا إِلَى الْكَهْفِ يَنشُرْ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُم مِّن رَّحمته ويُهَيِّئْ لَكُم مِّنْ أَمْرِكُم مِّرْفَقًا
faaoow ila ‘l-kahfi yanshur lakum rabbukum min rahmaatihi wa yuhayyi lakum min amrikum mirfaqa.
Betake yourselves to the cave. Your Lord will shower His mercies on you and dispose of your affair towards comfort and ease." (Surat al-Kahf, 18:16)
He said, “Run to the cave!” to those who were running away from the tyranny of the sultan of that time. “Run to the cave and Allah will send His mercy on you.” So when the miners ran to the cave and the mountain collapsed, it didn’t hit them and from that cave they were able to connect with the people and get water and light. So I gave a long lecture about that.
Chilean and Argentinian people have strong faith, not half faith, no. They have very strong faith! Alhamdulillah, I didn’t see such faith except in Indonesia. Indonesians are like that too; they have strong faith. You say something and they cry. I never saw anyone crying here, me and you, we don’t cry. But there in Indonesia, they make everyone to cry. Chileans and Argentinians are the same: they cry immediately because they have strong belief. But really, the tajalli there is very strong, you can feel it.
So there are seven stones in the world but they will not be given to you. If one comes to your hands, immediately a jinn will come and say, “Give the amaanah back to me!” So don’t look for it as it’s not meant for human beings to have; they are for balancing the Earth. If these stones are gone, then the Earth will lose balance. Then there will be an earthquake if the angels move that stone just a little bit, and immediately in that area those electromagnetic waves will move the Earth from moving that stone, which is a diamond stone. So anytime an earthquake occurs, remember that stone has been moved a little bit. If it was moved more, there would be a bigger earthquake. If it gets moved more and more, then there is no way to control the earthquake. Every time that happens you have to remember the Last Days are approaching.
Allah (swt) said in the Holy Qur'an:
إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَاوَأَخْرَجَتِ الْأَرْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا وَقَالَ الْإِنسَانُ مَا لَهَايَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبَارَهَا بِأَنَّ رَبَّكَ أَوْحَى لَهَا
Idha zulzilat al-ardu zilzaalahaa wa akhrajati ’l-ardu athqalaaha wa qaala al-insaanu maa lahaa yawmaidin tuhaddithu akhbaarahaa bi-anna rabbaka awhaa lahaa.
When the Earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion and the Earth throws up her burdens (from within) and man cries (distressed), "What is the matter with her?" on that Day will she declare her tidings, for your Lord will have given her revelation. (Surat az-Zalzalah, 99:1-4)
Then the earthquake will shake, but not a normal shaking, and that will bring out what is hidden; what is buried inside will come out. Now scholars explain this is referring to the Day of Resurrection when all deceased people, those who are buried, will come out.
But that is not the only meaning, that is one interpretation of it. Allah (swt) will bring back to give you, He will show you a sign. That big shake will bring treasures from the bottom that will be under the control of Mahdi (a). Jinn will be ordered to bring to the surface every possible treasure from under the Earth. Then, where will they put it? In Masjid al-Amawi in Damascus! All the treasures in the world -- gold, diamonds, everything -- nothing will be left. People will pass and look at it, but they will not touch it because no one will be in need then.
So at that time, wa qaala al-insaanu maa laha, “Man cries (distressed), ‘What is the matter with her (Earth)?’" Human beings will say, “What’s going on!? What’s going on!? Yawmaithin tuhaddithu akhbaarahaa, On that Day will she declare her tidings.” So what is going on? At that time, in the time of Mahdi (a), Earth will talk to you, telling you what you have done wrong so you can repent. In the time of Mahdi (a) everyone will be pious as they will all repent and give baya` to Mahdi (a)! Tuhaddithu akhbaarahaa bi-anna rabbaka awhaa lahaa, “She will declare her tidings, for your Lord will have given her revelation.” Whatever Allah (swt) has revealed to Earth, He sent as wahi. This means that Earth is so important, so dear to Allah that He gave it to humanity, for human beings.
How will Allah send a wahiy? For human beings we say, “inspiration.” Only prophets receive wahi, revelation. And Allah is sending Earth wahi. This means Allah gave human beings something so dear to Him in order that they live on it peacefully, but they destroyed it because they were tyrants. At that time everyone is running. To where are they running? In the scholarly meaning, it means running to akhirah; in the literal meaning, it means running to Mahdi (a), to be in Sham, so much so that someone who is as far away as Malaysia will be able to move to Sham in one step merely by saying, “Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.”
That will be the time of miracles. Bianna rabbaka awhaa lahaa, “For your Lord will have given her revelation.” At that time, people will come in groups to see what they have done, as Allah (swt) said:
يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
Faman ya`mal mithaqaala dharratin khayran yaraah, wa man ya`mal mithaqaala dharratin sharran yaraah.
There, whoever did an atoms' weight of good will see it and whoever did an atom's weight of evil will see it. (Surat az-Zalzalah, 99:7,8)
“Who does a little good will see good.” What is meant here by “good”? It means that he will not be held in the hands of Dajjal, who will go all around the world except in Mecca, Madinah, and Sham. So whoever did good will not be in the hands of the anti-Messiah, rather he will find goodness with Mahdi (a). Those who did bad will be with evil, with the kaafir jinn, and with the anti-Messiah, Dajjal.
So that stone is the equilibrium that moves earthquakes or anything, and it will happen like that. May Allah forgive us and bless us.
