00:00:05--> 00:00:13

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while the other he was so happy as Mary said, I'm Ali Kumara.

00:00:17--> 00:00:38

So to get started, let me show you how an introduction is done when you don't want to do a real introduction. All right, that was pretty much the lamest non intro intro I've ever heard my life. So May Allah forgive brother frozen groovy, everybody's Hey, I mean, there we go. See, that's how you do it. The goal of the objective is to embarrass the person. Try harder next time. Okay.

00:00:40--> 00:00:57

I apologize for the delay for the lateness I just flew in back today. And usually when we're gone for a whole weekend, it's it's a real pleasure and a joy to get back home. And so that's why I'm glad the kids with me as well. So it's just a little bit late.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

But the topic today is hope.

00:01:02--> 00:01:46

Before I even get started with the topic, I wanted to talk about the title. I actually seriously considered actually not even coming to the event, because of the ridiculous nature of the title. Never Say Never seriously. All right, there's a lot of guys who are going to have to turn in their main card. Okay, from Epic, you actually have to talk brother, no, my daughter wearing skinny jeans today to keep with the event. All right in the theme of the event, but nevertheless hamdulillah we made it here, okay, without skinny jeans. And that's a huge blessing of Allah subhanaw taala. So, the topic is hope. Hope is something that is a very powerful force is one of the most powerful

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

forces on Earth.

00:01:48--> 00:02:02

It's something that drives people that motivates people and inspires people. It hope is responsible for changing the course of humanity, multiple times throughout the volumes of human history.

00:02:03--> 00:02:15

You know, if we go back to our own history as an oma as a people, and we look at the message of the Parana, we look at the message and the tone of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam we find hope.

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

We find inspiration we find motivation.

00:02:20--> 00:02:37

You know, in in the Arabic language, the word Ottawa job. It's a powerful word. It's a powerful concept that captivates the minds and the hearts of people that can push people to accomplish things that not only themselves, but everybody would have deemed impossible.

00:02:38--> 00:02:56

And they can accomplish that through hope. Even in the English language, when we say hope, we talk about a beacon of hope. We talk about light beacon, a source of illumination, a source of light. And so these are very, very powerful concepts and they're deeply embedded within our faith and within our religion.

00:02:58--> 00:03:15

And when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was told what his role was, when he was when his job description was being given to him, by Allah Himself, Allah subhanaw taala called him but he run whenever you wish, she didn't know the the Quran itself was called, but she'd end the day.

00:03:16--> 00:03:22

That Yes, it is first and foremost, it inspires. It motivates, it encourages.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

And then secondly, it warns but even the concept of warning is not what we might think when we say warn,

00:03:30--> 00:03:58

even though concept of warning in Arabic, the word that's even used is that when you warn someone of some imminent danger, that is a real possibility to that like somebody is walking along the street, and there's a big, there's a big ditch, further down the road. So when you warn someone up that ditch and you warn them because you care about them, because you're concerned about them, because you're worried about them. And then you weren't that person, that is the concept of that warning that in.

00:03:59--> 00:04:23

So this is what this concept means and this concept talks about. So the prophets, a lot of them and the other but she, they inspire. And that's how they motivate people. That's how they inspire people, they, they build hope they inspire hope within people. And that is our job. And that is our responsibility, to latch on to that hope and to all also take that message and to further inspire hope.

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

And so when we read the Quran and read the book of Allah subhanaw taala, we find this fundamental concept of hope.

00:04:32--> 00:04:39

And we find how that hope is being driven and that hope is being provided. And that Allah subhanaw taala is reaching out to the farthest.

00:04:40--> 00:04:52

The farthest the people who have gone the farthest from Allah and providing them the greatest amount of hope. There are powerful ideas that are central to our belief into our mind into our faith.

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

And they are the key if we talk about the key verses which talk about this concept of hope and when we read them, we

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

Find something very interesting.

00:05:02--> 00:05:27

Who else penwortham is addressing there who is being addressed the very central idea whenever no but no speaker has ever spoken about hope in Islam from the Islamic perspective, without quoting the very famous well known if we're on our last panel, watch other commands or profits a lot easier to pronounce, to proclaim pul se, pronounced proclaim, yeah evadne Oh my slaves.

00:05:29--> 00:05:44

But now almost 100 whatever doesn't go on to address the pious and the righteous, the fasting in the praying the moon and the solid home last month that doesn't address those people. Allah subhanho wa Taala says alleging a sort of who Allah and to see him

00:05:45--> 00:05:57

and letting us sort of who other and putting his wrath is literally cross all lines and all boundaries cross the furnace line and for this boundary, to not just step over the line, but to just blatantly walk right past the line.

00:05:58--> 00:06:10

to just walk right through the barrier and the boundary that those slaves of mine Allah says, my slaves, they are still the slaves of Allah. Allah still loves them very, very beautiful.

00:06:11--> 00:06:31

That the hadith of Sahih Muslim the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says that he swears by Allah, that the love that your mother has for you, Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy upon the slaves unit universally, Muslim and non Muslim alike. A love mercy upon the slaves is greater than the mercy that a mother has upon her infant newborn child.

00:06:32--> 00:06:41

Allah's mercy is greater than that. So he says all my slaves, the ones who have crossed the line walk right past the boundary, walk right through the boundary.

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

That's up to me Rahmatullah.

00:06:45--> 00:07:30

And this is what we call a navy seal. What's the name? This is literally the scholars of the Parana scholars of Islam. They they've explained to us they've elaborated that here this is delivering the message of something being forbidden, hot all that it is forbidden for you Don't you dare ever lose hope. Now talking about you. Don't you dare ever despair from the mercy of Allah? Why can you never despair from the mercy of Allah? Because what is the mercy of Allah in naramata? He was he had Kula che, Allah says, My Mercy encompasses everything in a happy footsy the prophets a lot he seldom says that Allah has said what it is about God's Gabi in the socket hobby. My Mercy it supersedes it

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

overcomes my anger.

00:07:33--> 00:08:03

We know about the anger of Allah, we're familiar with the anger of a lot. And we're informed about the anger of a line that we're on. Unlike destroyed nations eradicated entire races of people. But did we ever stop to think and realize and ponder that part of the purpose not just as a warning was Allah telling us telling us about his wrath and his anger. But when I love painted the picture for us when the last ones are laid out, how angry emotional whatever was with these people, and how

00:08:04--> 00:08:20

devastating The Wrath and the punishment of Allah was, then also start to think and make that comparison. That as frightening, as devastating, as overwhelming as the wrath and the anger and the punishment of Allah is. Allah's mercy is greater than

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

in the mighty subaqua, the mighty mercy supersedes, it overcomes it does my anger Allah says

00:08:30--> 00:08:42

that's why we can never ever lose hope and despair and the mercy of Allah. You can't it's greater than any force on this earth. It's greater than anything you've ever witnessed or ever experienced or ever come across.

00:08:43--> 00:08:53

There are unbelievable beautiful parts and traditions within our religion within our Deen, that literally, if you sat down and you read and you felt and you thought about it, it would blow your mind.

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

It would completely shake you to your core.

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

That when a person commits a sin

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

when a person commits a sin

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

be this obeys alone. He's betrayed Allah. He's crossed the line.

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

You know, if somebody betrayed you, somebody did something wrong to you. You told somebody something very private and secret about yourself.

00:09:17--> 00:09:29

And you trusted that person, this something you didn't tell any other soul. You trusted that person. If this person went around and told everybody what you had told them in confidence.

00:09:31--> 00:09:41

And then, of course, you're very angry. You're hurt, you're betrayed. You're devastated by this betrayal. You've been stabbed in the back.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

And then this person went out of their way time and time again multiple multiple times. This person keeps apologizing to you. keeps trying to make it up to you.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

Be very honest. Are you ever going to trust that person ever again. If you have a friend or you have a brother

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Or you have a sister, you have an acquaintance? Who's going to trust that person and confide within that person? Aren't you going to go and warn them? You're going to go and warn them, hey, listen, you don't want to be telling him anything personal. Because before you know it, everybody's gonna know. Within an hour, it'll be on Facebook. Right? So that's the guy you don't want to tell.

00:10:22--> 00:10:59

It's, it's a limitation that we have. But the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is so great. And that's why there's this consistent theme in the Quran, this consistent theme throughout all the 1000s of quotations that have been taught to us by the prophet sallallahu Sallam that whenever the attribute, one of the two most commonly mentioned attributes together of Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, or what? The food in, come on, everybody everybody knows about food in. That's right. They're always mentioned together. For that reason, alone not only forgives, but then he showers us with His mercy after you forgive. And we become near and dear to a lot than we were even before we committed to

00:10:59--> 00:10:59

sin.

00:11:01--> 00:11:10

When the Prophet has taught us to pray and they go out, when a lot talk to a girl, well, Filipina Warhammer, along the filly What?

00:11:12--> 00:11:18

That's what is. That's why we can never ever lose hope or despair in the mercy of Allah. It's impossible.

00:11:19--> 00:11:33

When a person doesn't open a person does despair, it it has nothing to do with the mercy of Allah. It has no shortcoming on behalf of Allah or his mercy, it has solely It is so it only it only has to do with the limitation of that person and their own understanding.

00:11:36--> 00:11:58

And there are numerous examples of this. You know, in another place in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala talking about giving the blessing of the Quran. The Quran is a gift of Quran is a blessing, Allah says from Oakland kitara levina Safina mineva de la, we gifted we inherit gaming inheritance, we gifted this book this we're on to the people that we chose from our slaves.

00:12:00--> 00:12:07

Right and now Allah mentions different types of people in the community, to whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has given this Quran as a gift.

00:12:08--> 00:12:20

And you figure Allah subhanaw taala is going to start with the righteous, the pious, the scholars, the Imams, don't fall Russia you coming home, volume will be enough CD.

00:12:21--> 00:12:32

from them are those people who have done wrong to themselves, they have wronged themselves again and again over and over time and time again, constantly these people shoot themselves in the foot.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

Meaning those people that are the most sinful Allah subhanaw taala is reaching out to them and saying the Quran is a gift for you.

00:12:42--> 00:12:52

Let me know more capacity said and then there are some people who are kind of a little bit a little bad. Maybe today was a good day. Tomorrow's a bad day, which is the majority of us.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

Woman I'm sorry for Bella hieratic evening.

00:12:56--> 00:13:25

And then there are those who of course, Excel and doing good deeds. The sequence of the Quran is very powerful and eloquent and works in multiple ways. Yes, it's a progression, it's working from the lowest to the highest. But at the same time, the forum also shows a certain features a certain lesson, that the fact that Allah mentions the sinful people first, a lot of times I specifically reaching out to the most simple people, because sometimes when a person is trapped, when a person is stuck, when a person is just, it's like it's like you feel like you're in quicksand.

00:13:26--> 00:13:36

Right? And the harder you try to get out, it seems like the deeper you keep sinking in, to your despair to your hopeless into your hopelessness into the sin.

00:13:37--> 00:13:48

It's the harder you try, it seems like the quicker and the faster you continue to sink, a las panatela those people that are starting to completely give up hope. There's no hope for me.

00:13:49--> 00:14:06

What am I ever going to learn? What am I ever going to understand? What am I ever going to benefit from this? Allah reaches out to them first and says no, this forum is primarily a gift to you. It's first and foremost to give to you. My Mercy is reaching out to you before anybody else. It's available to you first and foremost.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

That's the power of the mercy of Allah.

00:14:11--> 00:14:24

The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam peace and blessings be upon him. He says in a very powerful Yes, it's a Heidi puts it a sacred tradition where the prophets Allah says that Allah has said, and this is a very powerful narration.

00:14:26--> 00:14:35

It's narrated by Anna supermatic. Well, the Allahu anhu in the book of Jeremiah Timothy, that he narrates at the province, a lovely sunset that Allah has said, Yep, Anna Adam.

00:14:37--> 00:14:54

Oh, son of Adam, old child of Adam. One thing you have to understand you very clearly as Allah is Allah subhanaw taala. Samantha is not saying Yeah, but he Adam. He's not addressing all of us together. He's addressing each and every single one of us individually, one at a time.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

All right, this was talking to each and every single one of us individually. And that's very important for

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Remember, you haven't either. Oh son of Adam Oh child of Adam.

00:15:06--> 00:15:12

All right, I was kinda what's LSS in nica mother out in what are jotun

00:15:13--> 00:15:21

law firm to laka Allah makanda Minka without burning, almost pero what Allah says all child of the mo human being.

00:15:22--> 00:15:33

As long as you continue to call out to me something very specific about the wording here. He didn't talk about prayer, he didn't talk about Salah. He just simply talks about calling out to Allah

00:15:35--> 00:15:42

calling out to a lot. We all have those moments of adversity and difficulty. When you're stuck, you're suffering, you're trapped.

00:15:44--> 00:16:20

And all you can basically muster or the only strength you can muster is to call out to a lot. Just Yeah, a lot. Just do that much. Manage that much. Just say yeah, Allah. say, Oh Allah, please help me. That's all it takes. As Allah says, as long as you continue to call out to me, when you're stuck when you're in trouble, what am I jumped in, and you have hope in me, meaning you never ever lose hope. You continue to have hope that I will help you and I will be there for you. Allah says, Allah Matata Minka,

00:16:21--> 00:16:51

I will forgive. And in fact, it's the past tense, meaning that I have forgiven whatever it is that you have done. And it's not even a big deal. I don't mind. This is one of the most powerful phrases in the entire collections in the tradition. One of the most powerful phrases we have we have been given in our religion, that when Allah forgives this person, as long as he continue, he or she continues to call out to a line, heartbroken Allah, Allah says, I've forgiven you, without your body. It's no big deal. Don't worry about it.

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

I don't even mind.

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

And then Allah subhanaw taala continues.

00:16:58--> 00:17:07

Because of course, that's how merciful Allah is, nothing is left to mystery. He completely lays it out. Allah subhanaw taala says you have another

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

low but deulofeu gana sama,

00:17:12--> 00:17:19

low beloved guru, Luca and Anna sama. If your sins were to reach the limits of the sky.

00:17:20--> 00:17:23

My teacher when he was explaining this to us,

00:17:24--> 00:17:40

may last runs out protects him. When he was teaching this to us, he gave us an example. He said just so you can understand as an example, he said if every single time and by the way, remember we're talking about one person at a time, if every single time a person he or she sent

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

that sin had like some physical mass to it.

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

So for example, every single time I sinned, a bottle would appear.

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

A bottle would materialize in consequence of every sin I committed.

00:17:58--> 00:18:13

Then when I come in a second sin, a second bottle appears right next to it. And then a third and fourth and fifth. And one person, one person each and every single one of us, one person kept sending so much, so much so much.

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

That literally the entire Earth became covered with bottles

00:18:19--> 00:18:27

sent since now there's not even a single inch left on this entire Earth, north south east west, the entire Earth has been covered with the person sitting

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

but that person keeps on sitting.

00:18:31--> 00:18:43

So when there's no more room on the ground, where are you going to put the next layer of sits on top. So you start stacking the bottles on top of each other. And then that one person, individually one human being

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

continues to sin so much so

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

that forget about the entire earth but the entire Earth to the sky becomes completely filled with since

00:18:57--> 00:19:04

then this person filled the entire Earth covered the ground and filled it all the way up to the sky full of his or her sit one person committed that medicine.

00:19:06--> 00:19:11

And then after all of that, Allah subhanaw taala says, who must have

00:19:14--> 00:19:23

Kumar means then after all of that, after sending so much it's tough for them. You asked me for forgiveness. What

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

you just asked me for the

00:19:27--> 00:19:35

last panel what Allah says go for to Dhaka I have forgiven without revising and it's not even a big deal. Don't worry about

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

you have no other human being

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

in Mecca.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

No attention before all these other things via email updates. And even after she'd be shaken, let's say to Kobe, karate, how much religion there are all human beings. If you literally feel the entire earth with your sins and then you came to

00:20:01--> 00:20:11

You left this world who died and you came to me, but you are not associated in partners with me, you have continued to have hope in me, you just continue to stay connected with me

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

as much as possible,

00:20:15--> 00:20:19

I will literally feel the earth full of forgiveness and reward for you.

00:20:20--> 00:20:24

In love and Saba, where am I know what I mean? I'm Ellen solly. Have

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

you got the love who say the African has an appeal?

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

Some people will send so much.

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

But then they'll realize that there is a break in the medium,

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

there's a user, there's an opportunity to turn things around towba literally means a U turn.

00:20:44--> 00:21:16

There's an opportunity to turn things around. And that person will take that U turn and start coming back the other way. And that person will believe that our last ones I will take care of that and will forgive them. And that'll last one time will not make this person regret their his or her choice. And that person will work hard to do whatever good that they're capable of doing. To the best of their capacity, whatever they can manage. Allah subhana wa tada will not just forgive their sins, Allah subhanaw taala will literally convert all of their sins into the deeds.

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

Can you imagine what that means?

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

So this is the concept of hope that we need to grasp

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

that we really need to internalize.

00:21:29--> 00:21:35

You can't go wrong with hope understand this. You can't go wrong with hope. There's oftentimes a paranoia

00:21:36--> 00:22:04

All right. You know, you guys hear enough talks and lectures hopefully inshallah, that where I can kind of address some real issues. And not just give just a standard motivational talk on hope. There tends to exists a certain level of paranoia in the leadership of the community, older segments of the community, parents, the more religious practicing segments of our community.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

That now this guy got up there and he yelled and screamed and shouted and screamed.

00:22:11--> 00:22:20

He yelled and screamed and shouted and everything, talking about hope, hope, hope, hope everything's alright. Everything's okay. It's all gravy. It's all good in the hood, go home. It's all good.

00:22:21--> 00:22:28

Right? That? Well, brother, people are going to just go out there and commit sins and be like, Whoa, baby.

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

Right? So good.

00:22:32--> 00:22:37

Right, like we're doing, you're enabling people understand something, understand something.

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

You can't go wrong with hope when it comes to a loss.

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

Hope within Allah leads to good things in good places.

00:22:50--> 00:23:06

When you are hopeful, and you have that level of conviction in a relationship with Allah, it leads a person to feel closer and near and dear to Allah, that person will eventually open the book, have a look, that person will bow down their head and sujood before a lot.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

And that's where that person's life changes. We don't have to police people.

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

That's not our job.

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

We're not we don't police people. That's not our job.

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

We're meant to inspire people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say,

00:23:26--> 00:23:47

in the level of Atlanta, one time some people and some of the companions the followers of the pop system painted a profitable odor alarming make to Allah destroys these people litter rain down fire from the sky. Right. So make make Rama destroys these people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam raised his hands.

00:23:49--> 00:24:00

There are two different occasions one occasion It was about the people of doze one occasion was about the people that suffering by doing something and both times of profits a lot he said and said along maybe along magnification,

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

Oh Allah give guidance to the people of dose.

00:24:11--> 00:24:43

So he said, Oh Allah, give guidance to the people of those, oh, Allah give guidance to the people of Snuffy. And then he actually turned to his companions. rhodiola while I knew him, and taught him a very valuable lesson, he said in the level bathla Ana, I was not sent a curse people to dam people to do people to help. I was not sent for that purpose. What in another way to write method, I was sent as a mercy for all of the creation of a love for all of humanity for all of mankind. That's why I was sent

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

the prophets a lot. He said when he would send people out on expeditions, when his companions in the Sahaba of the alumni would go up. You would warn that you would literally shake you know, again, that was that upper crust that was the leadership that was the more practicing part of the community.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

The promises some would literally warn that you would sternly remind and advise that he would tell them that in other words, we are sitting in a lot more

00:25:12--> 00:25:18

human centered facilitator religion for the people not to make it difficult for the people used to tell them Bushido will add to

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

brighten people's day.

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

Don't bring down fire from the sky.

00:25:28--> 00:25:39

inspire people, motivate people don't scare people away. Yes, you know what not to ask you to facilitate a relationship with a love for people. Don't make it difficult.

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

Don't make it difficult for people to connect with a lot to get to know a lot.

00:25:45--> 00:25:48

And so this is a concept we really have to understand we have to grasp.

00:25:50--> 00:26:05

And, and talking on that subject, taking it a little bit further. I wanted to add a couple of last notes here, that while we understand the basic premise, we don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Never. We inspire hope in the mercy of Allah within others as well.

00:26:07--> 00:26:19

And we never, ever give up on people. That's a part of this discussion of hope. You never give up on people. You never give up on yourself, which is what we've been talking about. And you definitely don't give up on other people.

00:26:21--> 00:26:29

There are numerous examples My time is limited. Otherwise, there are dozens of examples from the life of the prophets a lot of a sudden, what happens when you don't give up on people?

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

holiday, every

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

Hollywood movie Hollywood been wanting.

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

Alright, one of the greatest heroes of the history of our religion.

00:26:42--> 00:27:14

You know, probably hundreds of 1000s of people all over this world today are named Khalid, or know somebody named Khalid, very common name in our communities a great hero from our history. He was the man responsible for the turn of events on the danilova during the Battle of the neighborhood, he was responsible for the killing for the murder for the martyr martyrdom of dozens of Sahaba dozens of Muslims usually use a man grace caused great harm and pain to the profits a lot he set up. This was the day when his uncle fell and his uncle died.

00:27:16--> 00:27:23

But the process of never gave up on him. Every opportunity got he's talking to Holly's brother and he says man holidays are really smart dude.

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

Holiday hundreds are really really smart Dude, I thought he would have figured this out by now.

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

His brother goes and communicates up to Hollywood. What the process of says you're really really smart guy.

00:27:36--> 00:27:49

didn't give up on it. Hollywood in Hollywood. Not only becomes Mohsen, but goes on to become one of the greatest people in the history of our religion, a man about whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called him safer luck and a son in law who saved from the screw up

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

he called him a sword of god

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

that's how amazing this man was.

00:27:58--> 00:27:58

abusive Yeah.

00:28:00--> 00:28:04

Forget about fighting against the Muslims working against the Muslims he led off

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

of all of that. The Prophet somebody some never gave up hope on him.

00:28:20--> 00:28:31

When he comes to meet the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when they're camped outside of Makkah drink at the occasion of putting Mecca Muslims you know they start you're approaching Alright, so if you're rolling in the process versus everybody back home

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

and he actually tells a Be respectful This is a leader of his people

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

and treat them with dignity and respect.

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

And Abu sufian into becoming Muslim Robbie Alomar in

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

Abuja who's ever heard of double jobs before

00:28:49--> 00:29:01

all right, it's a week narration but just to give you a context and an idea of who Abu Jihad was because we don't have a lot of time the prophets a lot of a sudden says that liquidity for our for our mighty Abuja

00:29:02--> 00:29:07

for every nation there is a fit out everybody knows that all right, big scary bad guys at all.

00:29:09--> 00:29:14

For every nation, there is a fit out and the fear out of my own my mind nation was Abuja

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

pseudo horrible wretched man.

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

He dedicated his life

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

to working against Islam and aligned the Quran and the messengers a lot. He said.

00:29:29--> 00:29:32

The pride in the arrogance of this man, you know, limits

00:29:34--> 00:29:48

and he died eventually fighting against Islam and died in that state in that condition. Well, he said there Nkrumah who stood by the side of his father and fought against the Muslims multiple times numerous times, one and nothing more but to avenge the death of his father.

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

When the province of Southern comes to Makkah

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

and the economic runs away, his wife comes and says a coma.

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

Right away or messenger below. She has such a song. I think I can bring him back. But he's afraid because he fought against you numerous times. He's afraid. So if you can grant him safety, immunity,

00:30:15--> 00:30:24

then I think I can bring him back. I think I can have some sensitive, says go nobody will lay a finger on Nkrumah. She goes and she fetches him she brings him back.

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

When the process of yours news that Nkrumah is coming

00:30:30--> 00:30:36

his father was called Abu Jamal. Of course, that wasn't his name. That means a father figure. Is it the most unfortunate name? Right?

00:30:37--> 00:30:46

So he was called Ahmed Ahmed Venetia was a US called hacker. But they call it a mobile job because of his action, the father of ignorance because he'd be ignorant.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

And he was so stubborn.

00:30:49--> 00:31:09

The prophets a lot. He sort of addresses the Sahaba of the logline and he says, Nkrumah is coming. And he's coming and I'm hopeful that he will become one of you will become a brother to me, you'll accept Islam. Abu john was who he was, and he did what he did, but it does not change the fact that he was a Coronavirus, Father, and everybody's got a soft spot for their parents.

00:31:10--> 00:31:16

When he's here, I don't want anybody saying anything bad about a vagina. And in fact, I don't even want you to refer to his father as a vagina.

00:31:19--> 00:31:38

What ends up happening is Adam accepts Islam. The sennebogen who fought against raised the sword against the Prophet of Allah. Not only did he accept Islam, but we know from his life that he ended up eventually dying in the battlefield fighting on behalf of his army divers checking the center bubble, Japanese issue.

00:31:39--> 00:31:47

You don't give up on people. The woman who paid in a range for the assassination of the uncle of the profits, a lot of your hands up

00:31:48--> 00:31:54

any vendor console, so much such profound pain to the profits, a lot of them that he cried

00:31:56--> 00:31:59

and he couldn't contain his emotions, it was so difficult for him

00:32:02--> 00:32:08

to arrange And not only that, but once he fell in the battlefield chief went down a woman, she went down into the battlefield and mutilated his body,

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

such a woman

00:32:12--> 00:32:18

she comes to the profits all of a sudden at the confluence of mechanics of the slump of your love life.

00:32:20--> 00:32:25

The man who actually carries out the hit the assassination on the Uncle, uncle Bob's and Lakshmi,

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

murder assassin,

00:32:29--> 00:32:32

killed the uncle of the profits a lot a setup for money.

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

Except as well,

00:32:36--> 00:32:44

and ends up killing ends up being the cause of a very, very nefarious, very, very problematic individual leaving this earth will say that

00:32:46--> 00:32:54

you just don't know what the future holds for people. And I'm giving you all these examples. One of the most profound examples that we have that we fail to understand and overlook.

00:32:57--> 00:33:04

We need about 100 prophets a lot easier than saying about gender and gender or fill gender.

00:33:05--> 00:33:15

In the process of is telling him all about you are going to paradise. And when the Prophet says it that's a done deal. It's finished. It's over. It's That's it, you're going to paradise.

00:33:17--> 00:33:25

Oh my god, I love you. I knew what was he before the slump. He describes himself. He said two things used to preoccupy my time before Islam.

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

Drinking

00:33:28--> 00:33:35

and fornication, adultery, womanizer. That's all I did. That was my life. That's who I was.

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

The prophets, Allah, he said, and in fact, he leaves his home to do what's on the day that he attempts to slump.

00:33:43--> 00:34:05

And go begins on his journey of becoming the epic, epic mercy that either way that's that's that's too easy of a setup. All right. You don't get to call yourself epic. Alright. But anyways, he begins his journey of becoming one of the most amazing individuals that ever walked the face of this earth. He left his home that day sordin had to go, Will I ever be like kill the profits a lot easier

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

to murder the Messenger of God. That's why he left his home that day.

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

But he returned to home

00:34:14--> 00:34:20

becoming Amaro be a lot more angry. The amazing men that we name our sons after today.

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

Never give up on people who don't know what the future holds.

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

And Allah subhanaw taala is capable of anything and everything.

00:34:32--> 00:34:48

And then as a last note, I mentioned this earlier, but the prophets alongside them use to inspire the Koran it inspires hope. This is why the Koran talks about genetic integrity means FTL and have gardens and paradise waterfalls and rivers flowing in paradise

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

via and how to be more innovative acid and how do we learn in

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

that initial reading one How to Win acid moussaka. This is why the Quran talks about rivers

00:35:00--> 00:35:33

pure water, rivers of milk that will never go sour rivers of pure hunting rivers of wine a paradise that is non intoxicating. This is why the Quran inspires this hope. This is why the prophets Allah tells us about palaces in paradise Nabina to muffet Latina Latina to men that have been Latino have missed a brick of gold on top of a brick of silver and cement in between this mask. That's why the profits allottee some inspires hope when he tells us about a palace in paradise that is made out of a single pearl that has been hollowed out

00:35:34--> 00:35:47

and has 1000s and 1000s of rooms. And at the door of each and every single room there are 1000s and 1000s of angels that greet you that call you and say Salaam Alaikum. salaam aleikum, Tibetan kodoku holiday

00:35:50--> 00:35:54

you're an amazing person enter into paradise and that's it. Live it up. Enjoy.

00:35:55--> 00:36:04

This is why I lost sight of what's out there tells us woodtech ina Fie Allah Allah. Allah tells us about lazy boys and reclining chairs in paradise.

00:36:05--> 00:36:16

This is why Allah tells us that while that person is chilling on his lazy boy on his recliner in paradise underneath the tree that the hyena Buhari tells us though you see the rocky movie literally, I mean, to me

00:36:18--> 00:36:44

this tree is so huge that if a person rode a horse for 100 years, he could not cross the shade in the shadow of that tree. So while he's chilling with his family and his friends underneath the street on these recliners being served food and water, he looks up at the tree and he sees fruit hanging from the tree. And when you look at fruit hanging from the tree, then you go Nom, nom nom, right? You want some of that?

00:36:45--> 00:36:51

So he just thinks Nah, nah, nah, man, what happens? The Quran tells us

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

who had the idea

00:36:56--> 00:37:21

that the bunches of these fruits and the branches of these trees would be filled with fruits, lower themselves and continue to lower themselves will do what they need to they continue to lower themselves. So much so that this person in Paradise is not inconvenienced to the point where even he has to lift his head up from where he's reclining. It will literally come down to his mouth you will eat it will lift up when he wants a more it'll come down it'll feed him and it'll lift back up.

00:37:23--> 00:37:29

inspire, motivate hope that's what we need today. as well. People are desperate for today.

00:37:31--> 00:37:44

I pray and I hope that'll last kind of what's how that allows us to understand and practice everything you've said and heard. does not promote hate on for your timing your patience. I've gone five minutes over time, but the next speaker is no mine so nobody cares.

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

I had to do at least one
