I'm really honored to be here today and have this platform to
speak and inshallah together a lot as the agenda will
bless us and give us lots of Hashanah, Yom Okayama for this moment we're sharing in time.
So So Pamela, we've finally arrived at the end of the year
2020. So panela
I think all of us agree that we want to just get this year in our rear view and forget about it somehow.
It's been a trying time for for us an unprecedented time in our lives.
Of course, people before us generations before us have encountered many calamities and dealt with many disasters, trials tribulations, but for us in our lives, this is an unprecedented thing, something that just happened out of the blue, and we've just been forced to deal with it so panela but at hamdulillah because of a loss of panela to Allah and because of Akita tuna because of our creed, what he mana and our faith and to what coluna I'm a lot and our trust in the law as well. We are able to
come back and fight against these hard difficult times and calamities that we're dealing with and be able to face them head on these tools that aqidah and Eman and our tawakkol give us the ammunition to go against these types of situations where other people that don't have these tools will fail. They will go down very dark roads people screaming Why Why is this happening? And they will not be able to deal with it but we as Muslims know Eliza gel ket typically she a lot under akula she Allah has decreed everything a lot as a justice in the Quran. wahaca Kula she in Daraa who Taka de la so Allah Allah azza wa jal says that he created everything. He created everything well, Halak akula she
he created everything brought everything out of non existence into existence. This is halaqa Okay, for kadavu, tequila and pre ordained and ordained everything, and calculated everything so we know everything is from Allah to be adequate to Allah. So when these things come to us, and they face us, we are able to withstand them and not crumble at hamdulillah. Now, Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal also said said to us, I live in an either or Sabah to masiva Paulo, in lillahi, WA inna Elaine here on your own. So Allah azza wa jal says, Those if they are afflicted with them will ceiba with a calamity or a disaster, they're afflicted with a trial, their response to that is orlu. In the law,
he was in he Roger and that's the response of the believer, the believers response is, indeed very early to along we belong to a lot we belong and to a law we shall return. So the believers response when we are faced with a calamity or a disaster or some sort of test is that a a lot is my master. I am the sleeve of Eliza Joe, and I'm going to return to Him. That is the response of a believer. And this is a trial for us going through what we're going through right now. But what do we say we see as we this ayah states right here call you in the law here in the law here in the illegal Nigerian, so we are rarely to allow we belong and to Allah, we shall return that is our response. And we'll
see but we'll see but here is like masiva yonny like a group and we'll see but here for us that what we're dealing with, but we'll see but can be like this heat seeking missile targeted for a certain individual, like a certain test you you may be tested with how a health issue or a loss of a family member or loss of wealth, but this specific test is tailored specifically for you because Eliza Joe loves you
And he wants you to turn to him and increase your Eman through this. So we can turn this little Seba into a blessing or this blur this we'll see but is a blessing in disguise Subhana Allah when Allah azza wa jal also says, Well Matt or Saba mean will Ciba ellaby, if Neela. So, so a lot Isaiah says that no disaster a calamity strikes anybody except by his leave except by his will, except by the permission of Allah azza wa jal, so that gives us contentment in our hearts, whether we were feet were what we're facing in this in this time of our lives right now, or some individual problem that we may have. Whatever it may be, we know that it's from Allah azza wa jal, and having that belief,
and having that faith in that gives us this contentment, that's so very precious, and so very, like priceless, that
there's a statement actually, that if the non Muslims knew the contentment that the true believer has in their heart, they would try to steal it from them. So we we have this contentment when we have these things in line properly, our Arpita and our E mine and our tawakkol. Allah, when we have these all in line where they're supposed to be, we the believer has this Sakina this tranquility and this loss, this sincerity in their hearts and this contentment, that that is priceless. So, so knowing the fact that Eliza gel is the one that is behind these things, and behind these tests, were able to move forward. And it's not and we're not defeated by it. And this is where, you know, people
fall into like getting anxiety or depression or these type of things be because of the lack of luck with a lot of people that have anxiety or develop anxiety when they face these types of calamities in their lives. It's because of a lack of adequate because of a lack of trust and a loss of handling either. They may say oh no, I trust the lines of a job. But I'm just No, no, no, it's the cure is to put your trust completely in alignment, which unknowing. Everything is from him. Eliza Joe knows everything we're going through a lot as though Joe cares about us more than our parents care about us. So Pamela, he's the one that created us, he asked me to clean he is the one that clothed our
bones. He's the one that gave us our eyesight, our ears, he is the one who allows our hearts to beat right now in this very moment. He's the one that is allowing our lungs to inhale, exhale, this is all be Neela. So once we embody that, once we live that these type of mental illnesses like anxiety go away. And these worries that come up that people feel and we are able to rise above and conquer and stand in the face of these difficult situations. And an ally Zilla Joe says he says the did people do people think just because like they they believe that they're not going to be tested, they're just going to be left and they're not going to be tested. So this is our faith is being put
to test you hate it's like you say you believe Okay, let's let's see how much you believe. You know, so our test our faith is being tested. Okay? And that's when where and when we need to rise up to the challenge and accept this and combat this with our Akita and our men and our to work with and the profits of the law it was seldom even said you know, the even a prick of a thorn, a prick of a thorn, is a removal of sins. So imagine what we're going this is something physical, by the way. There's also emotional emotional pain that the Muslim goes through as well. So all everything we're all going through right now the stress and the difficulty that this this this the situation we're
facing right now brings and any other situation our lives we're getting rewarded for a lot yalom Allah knows a lot is Eileen Eileen. Okay, he's the all Knower. So every every feeling all the mush, all the feelings we have inside the sadness, the worry, all these type of things a lot. Isaiah, john knows, he's gonna rub it, you know, he's our Harlock. He knows exactly how we are feeling and we're getting rewarded for it.
emotional pain we go through and any physical pain. So and then and to be so long who I knew I said, I'm also said you say I jibon me I'm gonna look man, you know, he said, Oh, how amazing is the fair of the believer? How amazing is the affair of the believer? Male and female Of course, if if something good happens to them, they praise a lot and they're thankful they get rewarded, if something harmful happens to them, they say and hum did Allah in LA we're in daily Roger, and, and and they still get rewarded. So if you kill till Hala teeny in both situations, the believer is rewarded. How great is that? How great is it to be Muslim? How great is it to be a believer. And it
always you know, it's such a beautiful thing. It's such a beautiful way of thinking and the train of thought to know, you know, everything is from a law you know, where you're driving your car last cut that a lot and your wheel, your wheel falls off or, or you break your phone, I've got that a lot me a lot. And I decree that for any of us.
But if something like this happens, you say, you know so Pamela, I mean, we're human beings, of course, we feel a little, you know, upset, of course, but we know that in the end, it's from Allah, Allah will will replace it with that which is better because he decreed that even though we may not see the wisdoms behind things, we know that Allah azza wa jal, our Creator is the most perfect, he knows exactly where everything is supposed to go. And that we can rest and sleep at night knowing robina is taking care of us in all aspects. And excuse me, and the law, as a gel also says, He says in the matter of city use law, you know, after hardship comes ease, after hardship comes ease. So
any difficulty we face, if we face it, with some with patience, after that, after that ease will come and many of us have experienced that we're in this
mess up or is in a really difficult tight spot. And we don't know how we're going to get out of it, but we just have to, you know, net the workload Allah and and then we're able to get a law makes a massage makes a wait out for us. So Pamela so in the Moto city, you saw, so with hardship comes ease after hardship comes ease now. And Subhanallah you know, like all of this, like this is, we can't count the blessings of Allah Subhanallah God, even though we try, we can never count ultimately count the blessings of a lot to better equip to honor
all this, this, this feeling of contentment that we have, that's a blessing, that's just that we're able able to feel this and have this contentment is anathema from a lot to bark with Allah, our health is anathema. Our the way we look is in our loved ones are anathema. Okay, you know, everything around us is a blessing have a lot to bark with Allah. And Eliza just says that in the Quran, if you if and if you tried to count the favors of Allah you'd never be able to count them. You know and allies the most are Forgiving, the Most Merciful. You would never be able to count the fevers of you have Allah azza wa jal on you. So Pamela, so this is this is a really important point,
you know, like the story this actually our situation I was talking to shift adage earlier, our situation that we're in is kind of like the situation of Eunice Sally, Sam, when he was in the belly of the Hoot in the belly of the whale, upon the lights, like this whole bubble I you know, like from what I hear Toronto is and the East Coast is on lockdown right now. And maybe some parts of the states are on lockdown. So it's like, you know, the walls are closing in on us, you know, but so panela it's like unicity Salamis in the belly of the whale, and he's making dua to Allah subhanaw taala to get him out of this situation. And that was a difficult situation. But he he begged of a
Lhasa Potala and got closer to a loss of power to Allah in that harsh time. And what happened Allah need a way out for him immediately out for him. So these are lessons we can take from ourselves.
And there's also blessings in the this is this problem is also a blessing in disguise as well look at look at the things that have happened. You know, people aren't going out of their homes. Okay, so now we're spending more time with our loved ones. Okay, we've made our blues our houses into massages, we've we've because we can't really go to the masjid.
So we've made our our Komsomolets, you'll meet in our daily
Ideally prayers in our houses, okay, and we've made our houses into modalities into schools, okay? And we're spending more time with our family members and getting to know one another. Even better, because life and the business of life, the hustle and bustle is, you know, it does a pretty good job of, you know, separating us, you know, this person's at work, that person's at school, this person's busy going out, you know, but now we're finding more time for one another. So we have to look
at the brighter side of things, you know, not only do we have contentment in this in our hearts, because we know this is from Eliza Joe, we're also able to derive some, some benefits out of this situation, not.
Not so Pamela. So I mean,
I, I really asked a lot, I saw a job that you really kind of ponder about what I said about about this and try to extract the benefits of your situation and what everyone's going through right now. And any personal difficulty you may be you may be going through because Allah azza wa jal knows what you're going through, and you can find comfort in that and a lot asila Joe will certainly reward you inshallah. So, this I just want to touch on this point, because it was kind of the elephant in the room. This the COVID and the end of the year, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala that the coming year is much better than what we have just experienced. And we asked a lot to
constantly guide us and reward us. So anyways, moving on to this year, what do we what are we going to do? What's our plans moving forward? How, what's the game plan that we all have we people make new year's resolutions? People people procrastinate, you know, as as Muslims, we shouldn't say hey, you know, I'm gonna, I'm gonna read or and,
you know, to, to Joseph, and us every day, starting next month, no, we as Muslims, when we when we make our Nia, we should make it for right now, immediately. Right, and that change should come. inshallah immediately the Nia for change should be immediate. We shouldn't procrastinate. So SubhanAllah. So, so what are some steps for us to move forward? What should we do first? So, what what I propose is what we should do first is mahasiswa to and fusina. Okay, which is doing like a self audit, and, and, you know, kind of, you know, doing an account of your routines, your daily routines, how you're going about things, how you're practicing your deen
and just go every go over everything with a fine tooth comb. Okay, how am I reading? And am I? How much what am I reading? What about my my my solo watts? What are both my prayers? Am I praying on time? Am I doing the wife? Am I doing voluntary prayers? Of course we can't go to the masjid right now.
Am I am I being a good human in general because really that's what it's all about in the end is to have macadam a HELOC to have a HELOC vallila. To have beautiful manners. This is which, which we'll get to. This is of the utmost importance to say you're practicing your deen but not have good manners. It doesn't go together. You can't practice your deen and not have good manners. It doesn't work like that. Inherently, when you practice your deen properly, you should develop good manners now, so mahasiswa to unforeseen. So self auditing, or calling your own self to account for for how you're living? How, how are you going about your days, and we can't plan on fixing our lives. All in
one shot. We can't do that. We have to dial it down. We have to try to fix our day first. Once we fix our day, then we can fix our week. We can fix our month we can fix our year, and then ultimately our lives. We have to break it down in a day. What is our day look like? What does my day look like?
For Eliza gel? How am I carrying myself? How am I going about things now? Because we want to hold ourselves accountable before the day that we will all be held accountable because that day surely will no doubt come
Eliza with Joe tells us that he's going to hold us all accountable for everything we've done and we're
are going to be questioned about it and there will be only a select few of few people that will enter Jenna the lady herself as the profit slice that I'm also informed us he formed us that there's only a select number of people that will enter gender be really sad. And we asked a lot of penalty I like to make us of those of those people. I mean, you
know, so we have to hold ourselves accountable. Eliza gel he says in the Quran Allah Yama to desert kulu nuff sin Pina cassava la volmer Liam la vermilion in the lahat said he earned his up. So Allah azza wa jal says the day the day that every soul will be compensated for what is put forth. Okay, love wouldn't melt Leone, okay. So there will be absolutely be no oppression that day. No oppression because a lot. So a gel doesn't oppress, he doesn't oppress, we oppress ourselves by disobeying allies. So, every soul will be only compensated for what it put forth of good and evil, that soul will be compensated for those things in the law study or hisab. Okay and and no doubt Indeed Allah
is the quickest to hold people to account quickest to reckon, okay.
Or the Swift is to at reckoning now and allies which I wanted to told us one of them. One of the names of the of Yokoyama is Yamaha sub Yamaha sub the day of reckoning. So we already know it's coming, there's no way around it, but we need to make sure our, our pages of of deeds are in the best manner. Okay, they're in the best way. And they are presented to us in on uma piano in the best light now, because every single thing every single action we do is being recorded brothers and sisters, every single action that we do, everything we say is being recorded. So Pamela, when we, when we are at our jobs, we have cameras over us or security cameras or surveillance or our bosses
overseeing what we're doing, and we're on our best behavior. But when we're not in these places, we forget about Eliza gel and and we end up doing things that we shouldn't be doing. So Pamela we forget that a lot. So a gel is an Basia he's the all seen a semia the all hearing so Pamela, we forget these attributes of Allah names and attributes of Allah azza wa jal and and then we we tend to, you know, do things that could possibly anger Eliza Jo Subhan Allah.
Allah azza wa jal tells us sopapilla on uma piano shahida id him Semler home about sorrow home would you lose the home Bhima Cano, Yama loon, Eliza Joe says that on the Day of Judgment brothers and sisters, that our ears are hearing our sight and our skin subpanel our skin will testify against us. So panela what who is with us more than our skin? Subhanallah we have friends that were are good friends of ours that are always with us, our family members that are always with us. But nobody is with you more than your skin is with you. So panela those alone times you're by yourself, no one's around your skin's there. Your hearings there your site is there. So Pamela, and those things are
going to talk and ally knows best. How that will take place. But they will testify against us, you know, mock ama and we asked Allah subhanaw taala that they that when they testify, they're seeing good things about us. I mean yellow banana mean? So we have to work diligently and making sure that we're using this body that Allah azza wa jal created for us if you ask him in a way that is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal because the the day, you'll know kiama when that when people come that have books filled their book is filled with evil deeds. So Pamela, they're gonna say, well, you all know yawei Let's enter Molly huddle. keytab they're gonna they're gonna say, oh, my goodness, what is
this book because they know what all the bad deeds they put in there behind them throwing this evil deed here, that one and just keep going forward. It's all going to be brought back and presented like a mountain in front of them in the form of a book Malli hadn't picked up and they're gonna know that everything they did is in there because they're gonna say, Mally hadda Kitab la you are delusory Ratan welaka. Mira Illa saw her. What is this book? Oh my goodness. What is this book? I can't believe
This book is in front of me. It's got all my deeds in here. Small deeds, large deeds in law, I saw her a lot I didn't see it. I did, or something I saw her is filing things away perfectly and making sure everything is accounted for Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal says, Well, what do you do? Well, what do you do, man, I mean, know how the law and Allah as it just says, and they will find everything they did present before them. So imagine that you know yourself and I know myself what we've put forward a lot and a lot of it we forgot. But that day, there'll be no forgetting everything will be there. So we have to hold ourselves accountable, and look at ourselves and how
we're carrying ourselves in a day and, and correct those mistakes, and,
and better ourselves in the areas that need to be better.
Eliza gel also says a human neck you know, Allah Earth where he him. So so on that day, the mouse will be covered, okay, and our hands will be made to speak. And our body parts of you need to speak so Pamela so this is another another idea where a law is telling us that day that everybody is going to have their book of good deeds, and their bodies are going to testify against them. So we have to do everything in our power while we're still alive. And we're still breathing and we're still in this dunya to prepare ourselves for that moment that we stand before Allah azza wa jal No. So we basically have to become this like CSI or for forensic analyst if you will, and try to dissect our
daily lives and how to to make it better now because if we do this now and we stick to it this the the Muslim you are today will definitely not be the Muslim you are next year, you'll be a totally different Muslim. Because you have you will have checked yourself and you will have gotten in line and you have improved in so many different areas now. So one of the one of the first areas that we should we should be looking at when we're auditing ourselves is our worship
our worship, how is our our a bad? How is our a Banda to unfor Eliza gel, is it is it correct? Because we know the most important thing after the Shahada after B after seeing our Shahada and an besides unsaid wound of Islam comes okay and the second pillar of Islam is what is our Salah. Okay, so, after the Shahada teen is the salaat so how is our Salah? How is it? are we are we printing on time? Are we praying five times a day? Are we missing Salawat? Are we focused? Is there 10 keys is theirs is their focus and our Salawat because this is the one thing a lot. The first thing that we're going to be asked about is our salon if our salon is correct, everything else after will be
correct. And if it's not, then the person can be in a lot of trouble. So we have to make sure that our Salawat is correct. Okay, now, a lot has to adjust as well not up to Regina will insert Illa Leah Boone, Allah just says I did not create gin, the jinn and mankind except that they worship me. Okay. So the sole purpose of our existence is to worship a lot to be adequate to Allah, a lot does not need us to worship Him. We need a lot to worship Him. And it's a blessing, another blessing for us that Allah has created us to worship Him because by the mercy of a lot of Barranquilla either through this worship and we worship Him alone, he will grant us paradise so we have to pay attention
to our worship are we doing enough and you know that yourself you can judge yourself? Are you doing enough when it comes to your
your your a bad debts and costs attendance specifically? Your Salawat Okay, now I'm aligned with Joe tells us in the end that the agenda will ask the people of the fire there'll be a conversation between these two parties, mass silica comfy soccer, what what put you in the Hellfire, what did you do? And then and the response of these, this particular group of people, they'll say Paulo lemna Kou Minh and masa lien Subhana Allah, they said, they said we weren't from those who prayed.
They weren't with the word we weren't from those who prayed.
We weren't from those who
really wanted to do sola we weren't the salon type. That was that's their, that's their response. And so Pamela in the Arabic here,
there's a lot of like FSC logo via so like,
linguistic explanations to some is of the order. And here Actually, it's supposed to be lemon akun, lemon, lemon akun minimal saline, but there's an extra admittance or deletion here of the letter noon. So a lot so it just says call you Nana qu. So it's some of the LMS said the double mittens is the admittance of the extra letter here from the eye not not that there's an idea that there's a letter removed from the end, but the way it was revealed in the way it was written
down in the most half is to show the board
the distance how great the distance between these people were from being attributed or being described as people who pray there is so far away from it. Audio lemna qu, minimal saline. So this is what landed them in Hellfire, okay, was because they weren't
people of prayer. So this is of the utmost importance for us to really focus on our son a lot our who assure our humility and, and our tranquility in insula our focus in Salah. Because through the through the Salawat you will transform your life, you will transform your life. It is not,
you know, conceivable for somebody to be pouring their heart and soul into law properly the way that they're supposed to. And then after they do their testing, they are now you know, committing, you know, major sins, they're, they're ripping people off. They're, they're insulting people. No, it's not conceivable, if you're actually really praying the way you're supposed to, and wearing your heart on your sleeve as the expression goes. And you're really, you know, sincerely worshipping a lot as a joke that transforms outside of your Salah. After the test name, it still continues, because that's Silla, that connection between you and the loss of Pamela data doesn't break after
the testing. It continues throughout your day, until your next slot and your next salah and your next Salah. Now, so the correct a correct saw, will transform your life, you putting the highest part of your body down to your Creator, down to a loss of handling to either and begging of him for guidance. Right? You know, that often will stopping you see that 17 times a day. You're begging the law as a job to guide you. So panela We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to the straight path Allahumma amihan so so the Salah is of the utmost importance brothers and sisters, the upmost importance and if you if you feel like your, your HELOC is, is not where it should be, then there's
something going on with the salons. There's something going on there, you know, maybe maybe it's you know, maybe it could be you know, not a lack a lack of depth, a lot a lack of pondering over the meanings of the court and because we don't want to become like a buzz off his parents we don't want to we don't want to become a parent. Because I've actually met a lot of people that have memorized the Quran, which is a great feat, it's a great
a great achievement great goal that they achieved is memorizing the Quran, but memorizing the Quran, but with with understanding is a totally different experience understanding the Quran or at least at least the the verses are the sources that you under that you have memorized. If you can start by that by understanding those because those are the ones you tend to read more in your Salawat then that will bring life bring life to your prayer. Because I remember
I remember before I studied Arabic, this is in the beginning days when I became Muslim.
It was during Ramadan. handleless Actually, I actually became became Muslim like the night before Ramadan. hamdulillah anyways, I was in PSA thought all week. And there was an Arab brother beside me bawling his eyes out just bawling his eyes out and I was
Like, so Pamela, like, I'm really missing something here because I'm not, I'm not emotionally feeling anywhere near this man here because I'm just kind of standing there making my salon, but not knowing what's going on. So that was actually the point where I was like, I gotta learn this Arabic, I gotta understand, I know everybody can't go and learn Arabic and leave their families and hamdullah weak, people able to do it online, you know.
But you don't have to learn the Arabic language to be a good Muslim. Of course, that's not what I'm trying to say. But at least it's really encouraged to try to learn some Arabic, and at least learn enough that will help you understand what your what you're reading, and some of your sources and stuff like that. Because that every little bit of information, you get an understanding of the poor, and we'll just keep increasing your email, or at least it should, if it's not this other issue, but if you're Nia is correct, and you're and you're trying to learn Arabic, or you're trying to understand the meanings of the Quran, with with, with a sincere intention, Allah will start raising
your man through this now.
So we can talk about Salah for for hours and hours and hours, I just want to kind of give a brief
you know, like a little advice about, you know, making sure that we pay attention to our Salawat when we're, when we're praying, and it doesn't become just Magento heartcatch just like movements, you know, just the realla exercise. So we want to exercise, yeah, actually, there's actually studies about the meta the medical benefits of Ceylon and doing those movements, but we also we want a physical exercise. And we also want a spiritual one as well, both of those together in sha Allah. So and the next thing
I'd like to touch on, I kind of the segue was perfect here as an end,
you know, establishing that connection with the court and more,
you know, like, understanding the meanings of the Quran, and dedicating more of our time throughout our days, to reading for em, you know, this is this is important, this is the, this is the last message to mankind from our Creator from Eliza Joe, that the instruction manual to live our lives is before us, it's in all of our homes, multiple copies. And, you know, we've all gone through high school and university, some of us and we are the countless amounts of hours we've spent reading these other these other books, science books, and socials books and chemistry books, all these different books. And if you think about the amount of time that we spent into reading and
researching those books, if we had given that same amount of time, and the same amount of attention to keytab law, where would we be in terms of understanding and memorization? So our relationship ship with a port and is also another major means of transformation? Because the core and is not just for, you know, people in Arabia 1400 years ago, of course, you know, how some people have this misconception? Oh, this is, you know, the, you know, the rules are different back then. It's no, the court and sub panel law is an instruction manual for every human being how they're supposed to live their life. Okay. And for us to read the court and and, and see how it relates to us in our
individual lives. Because it does. Eliza gel mentions a 25 different names of profits in the end. What's what was the reason for mentioning these names? Just, you know, just for entertainment, of course not like the story of Yusuf Ali Salaam, okay, we read this.
We read this, the sort of all the time Allah says it's the best,
best story. So Pamela, why, let's let's investigate why he said that, how it is, how does the poor end pertain to us and to me, how does it speak to me individually? This is what we have to realize. It's not this book talking about general things and Oh, that's a nice piece of information. No, it has to do with you and how you live your life. So, so increasing our understanding of the Qur'an, by by memorization by reading and seeking out people that can explain the poor and to us. This is explaining
meanings of the poor and to us. This is a great a great idea to do and this will help increase our, our email in sha Allah and the messenger so I send them in, in the Quran, Allah, Allah says, Well caught on rasuluh Yalla be in comida de who had an Anima Jura. So an email I sent him said that my people have have abandoned the port and they've threw it behind their backs, like the people that weren't becoming Muslim. They want nothing to do with it. And look what's happening to us nowadays. Even Muslims are just there. They're leaving the Koran behind. Some of them haven't read it for years or don't even know how to read it. So panelists and we'll see. You know, it's a big, big
problem. Big muscular, and this and an Eliza just as Majora from hingeless you guys know hit you up. And the reason I started Mahendra from Mecca to Medina. So Pamela people are described in the front of Miki Hendra, from the book of Allah azza wa jal
to just make Hendra from it, just leave it completely abandon it, throw it behind your back. So Pamela, so we have to be careful that we aren't doing that partially or fully Subhanallah like, you know, maybe you are and has the most half has, you know, dust on it. So panel luck like this, we don't want this to be considered like a hinge it off from the book of lives. So we have to connect with more and more and realize that everything in there is speaking to us as a human being and speaking to us, and will guide us it's an instruction manual. Okay, when we buy when we buy a device, we look through the manual to see how to see how things work. Well now we're living in this
world, we need to know how to live in this world and not put an is there is there for us to to see how you're supposed to live in this world and have a relationship with a lot as an agenda. unexplained, how that we how we can have a relationship with Allah to Baraka with Allah. Now, because the Quran is a guidance, it's a guidance for all of mankind. A lot a lot Isaiah Joe takes people, your region nazmul vola Mati unknown, Allah azza wa jal takes people out of darkness into light through the Quran. Okay, a lot. So a gel describes Eman and Islam and the belief in Allah and the belief in Allah azza wa jal as nor as late and, and and misguidance and cough and shirk, and all
these things as vullo Matt describes it as darkness and evil. So Pamela so if you're not playing Rahim, Allah to Allah he actually mentioned common comments on this says Allah azza wa jal mentioned vullo martir. in plural,
because there's so many different ways of ship on so many different avenues of misguidance and darkness, and mentioned nor you can see a Noir, okay, he said, nor, in the singular, I mentioned, the straight path set off the cream is nor it's one. So, the passive chiffon the passive misguidance are many, but the path of a lot I xojo. The path that leads agenda set off in the most appealing is is nor it's one path, so panela now, and not to mention the the spiritual nourishment that we get from the Quran. Now, Eliza just says Allah basically lay out my inner globe a lot. So it just says indeed in the in the remembrance of Allah to the hearts find rest in the, you know, like are we are
using that our tongues at a loss of habitat I gave us to mention Eliza john mentioned the one who created it. And that translates into ultimate none and it to tranquility in our hearts just from reading.
Okay, and this is this is from what we're not talking about just doing just Vicodin when you say Bismillah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar
Subhana Allah panela all this all this helps with the tranquility entering your hearts and nourishing your soul. But a lot so john mentioned here that the Quran is is Vic, Allah, the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah, so through through the court and we're able to connect with a lot as ilja
and another another point here is after we have done our
Self audit after we have looked at our worship and after we have you know looked at our relationship with the court and
all of this should result in
macadam o'clock o'clock felt the law, it should always result in good mannerisms good behavior, and to be subtle long while he was Sallam said, I didn't come except to perfect good manners. That was the whole mission of any civil law who it was send them what does that mean perfect good manners and to be solisten keen to perfect good manners
to teach us good manners that the manager is supposed to have with a lot as a job and the manners that we're supposed to have with the creation of Allah subhanaw taala
how do we have good manners with a lot are good manners with a lot is that we worship Him alone. And we obey his his laws, we obey his commandments, we do things that please Him and we stay away from the things that angered him. This is having good manners with Eliza. Okay. And having good manners of the creation, you know, is is treating people fairly being being an overall good human being. That's all we really need to be, you know, not abuse, frowning, always, you know, have the band angry. No, we should be when that sweetness of Eman enters your heart and you're so happy to be a Muslim. And you know, and your your attachment. And your connection with a lot is strong, with your
Salah, and at the end and reading. And all of these things are tied together, your your your manners are going to be beautified. Everything's going to come out on your limbs, you're going to be smiling,
an empty sama sadaqa. So smiling, you get rewarded for smiling. We should be happy, we should be happy in all aspects of our lives, we should be dealing with other people
in a friendly manner. I know it's hard sometimes when we were trying to be nice to people and you know, we don't get the response that we want or frowning, but that's their, that's their
that's their way of carrying themselves. We don't have to be like that we don't have to lower our lock down to the level of somebody else's a HELOC. I know it's very tempting sometimes somebody you know, speaking with you rude, you want to get them back, you know, you want to give it to them good. But it's better to be the better person with Eliza, somebody treats you bad, you counter that with, with kindness, you know? And so Pamela, how, how many people have become Muslim? Because of,
of good manners. So Pamela, just one example I can think of right now is that comes to mind is
the spread of Islam to the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Islam didn't nobody went in there with a sword and said, Hey, you better become us No, are forcing anybody to No, it was through trade to Jada. And the, the the lack of the muslimeen. And their sulk their, their their manners, their behavior, their character, with with these people in their trading, it just led to people becoming Muslim because it's, it's, it's captivating. When somebody has such good manners, you just, you're just like subpanel law, you know, and the visa licen was described Hulu as an his manners with the court and we can learn our, our manners or our alloc through the the Sunnah of the prophets of life,
send them because he will and they'll put on Hulu Al Quran, if you would see them in the saucer. It was like, he was the like the the his he embodied all sense of the word, you know, the court and this ever he just lived and breathed the Quran, you know, for lack of better words, because of his manners. SubhanAllah So, so this self audit that we do with our of ourselves moving forward brothers and sisters, it's, you know, it's of the utmost importance that we do that and we look at our look at our Salawat look at our IE bad look at our relationship with Iran. And then look, you will see the fruits of all these things, in your mannerisms and you and you'll just be a happier person all
around. If you feel
like you're in a dark place right now for some reason something's not going well. Just know Allah azza wa jal is with you, everybody in the end, you know
They're for you. 100% like ally so jealous, he loves us more than our mothers. So kinda like yom, Yom Okayama. It's everyone, it's going to be enough's enough. See, everyone's going to be looking for themselves. Mothers aren't going to care about their kids, kids aren't going to care about their, their, their parents, all you have is you and your deeds. So, so a lot, Isaiah, Joe, he's the one that cares about us the most. So he's the one that we have to make sure is pleased with us in the end, and then and then we will attain the reward, the ultimate reward of allies have a job because the stuff in this life is just it's going to go away. It's not going to last
a lot. So Joe says, well, not in the light.
What about Qa? So Eliza just says what is with a lot is better and more and everlasting?
And it will always last? That's what Allah azza wa jal says, this dunya is going to expire. Everything is going to perish, all will be left as with our deeds, so we want to make a law our priority, moving forward, more so just make a law your priority, live and breathe the spirit of
Islam now, and Eliza also says in the Latina monomial Sati, high level agenda label mamnoon so the people that have faith, the believers that work righteous good deeds, they will let him adjourn legal mamnoon they will have a reward that will never end it will never be cut off legal mamnoon it will never end never be severed. Okay? Now, somehow a lot. So May Allah subhanaw taala make us of those people along? I mean,
and in closing here Subhan Allah.
This is a beautiful Ayah upon a lot. So when we go through our lives, and we've adjusted our lives, and that final day has arrived, everybody has a timer.
And everybody has an expiry date.
And we'll are We are all going to meet that day. One day, it's inevitable. We can't escape it. All we can do is prepare for that day. And a lot Isaiah Joe says about those people that finally meet that day in elvina kalu rumble in a law. So indeed those people who see our rub is Eliza Joe.
they proclaim that we are the slaves No. A Babylon we're the slaves of Allah happily we are completely pleased with that. A lot is our master in the Medina kalu Rabbana la familia stuck on
for almost a combo
now in the living a Colorado law firm, Mr. Calm and those people that see our Lord is Eliza Joe from Mr. amo and whatever that entails when we see our Lord is a lie. So that means we we believe in a law we worship a law alone we believe that Mohammed Salah Salem is the last messenger hotman to be Han
Solo La Jolla Salaam and whatever all that entails by that belief in Allah azza wa jal foma staccato and then they remain upright, the burning firm on that path to nezu ie him will Mullah aka the melodica come down. They come down lots of men that you get come down to that person this is this this is the time of emotes. The person is passing away at this time. So tetanus Zhu Li Mala Mala, aka the malai could come down and surround this person. This person example is in the hospital. The families around them crying, no, no. Stay with us. Stay with us. The Malachi could come down the person is feeling extreme fear. And then the Malachi could come down. Okay. And then they see a
latter half who will dazzle the melodica See, h don't don't don't be afraid. Don't be afraid. Don't. Don't be sad. You're leaving your family to trust us. Please don't. Don't do that. Don't be afraid. And don't be sad. What additional bit of generativity come to turn to I don't
that's the melodica see that don't Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid. Don't be sad.
We're giving you the glad tidings agenda. The one that you were promised in the world.
Eliza gel sent a messenger to you named Mohammed and he told you to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and told you if you do so you enter progen this place called Gemma, we're telling you right now
Don't worry about it. We have all got you covered. We're gonna we're gonna take you over to the next to the next to the next life, and you're going to enter an agenda. So can you imagine that person that person in that state is in that state near lawmakers like that person would that the angels descend a bit time of death and give them glad tidings of agenda? aloha Miami yacht alarm because of those people I mean Europe
so the Milan eco see what additional bit of generativity come from to add on. Not only or come fill hire to dunya we were your guardians and protectors during this via laws permission during this life will feel filler and also in the next life. We're going to take you over there. Okay. Well, that comfy hammock tested test sticky and for sukham. So, and for you, specifically for you, you're going to have every single thing you desire everything Halla that you desire you're going to have Okay,
welcome fee hi Natasha, he and for sukham Welcome fee. Hi, Matt down. So everything you've ever wanted, you're going to be granted in paradise. When you're in Paradise and you want more things, you will be also granted that. And then ally Zilla, Jen says Newsela min. for him. Allah says everything that you want, everything you desire, everything that you will think of when you get to agenda, you're gonna have that. But let me just let you know it's a newsletter. It's a snack. It's an appetizer to what the main course is going to be. So Pamela, can you imagine that brothers and sisters, everything your heart desires, you will be given anything you can think of after that you
will be given. And the largest says this is just like a little nibble, a little snack of what's about to come, because I'm going to give you much, much more now. So things we can even think of Allah subhanaw taala is going to give us and then ultimately, we're going to get to see Eliza jump in Jenna. And that will be the day that believers are the most happy, that will be the greatest reward to see their club. Not.
So Pamela so that that moment where that believer is on their deathbed, they're finally at the end of the road of this dunya. And the family is upset over them. And mega glad tidings of gender that person, even if they had the choice, which they don't, even if they had the choice to come back, said you know, hey, my family is really upset. Maybe I should just, you know, go back to the dounia. So they're not so upset. That person is going to be like, I just found out I'm in gender. There's no way I'm going back. This I'm going to genda I'm not going back, inshallah, they're going to make it here eventually. But I just got glad tidings agenda, how can I give that up? That's my ticket right
it's, it's an amazing scene that Allah azza wa jal has painted, a picture is painted for us in this and these is, you know, of that person. So, this is the end result, this is the, the hurstville hakima. This is the, the the good end that we all
asked, ask Allah for. So now this is
my advice shala to all of you and I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to show us the right path and inspire us to follow it. And ask Allah subhana wa tada to show us the wrong path and inspire us to avoid it.
