we seek protection with Allah subhanho wa Taala from our enemy shavon across the pond rejected, all the praise all the things all the glory belongs to Allah. We praise Allah subhana wa tada we beg above Hannah Montana to assist us We beg Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us we have faith and we have reliance only on Abbas panels Allah we fly for refuge. We fly for protection with life or salvation onto a law, from the mischief from the knowledge from the evil of our own selves. And with live for refuge protection and salvation not to Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil consequences of our misdeeds, whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala guides whomsoever He leads, no one and nothing
can misguide. And mislead that one in whomsoever Allah subhanaw taala allows to go into error due to the sins and the rancor, the oppression and violence. The false hood, that person chooses the nominee and nothing can guide them.
I stand before you on this beautiful day.
Beautiful day a Friday. And I can remind myself and you have the duty de las panatela calls us in the barn when he says yes
Oh, you believe all you have to be mindful of the last panel with Allah be conscious of our last panel, as he has the right that you should be conscious of, and do not die, except those of those who struggle and strive to submit their will to a last panel with Allah. And those are none other than the Muslims. May Allah, Allah make all of us inshallah, to follow this I
so brothers and sisters, and it's now
reached you again, I
attended we've been reflecting upon
in which last night that I categorizes the humans mankind into three categories. And we are reflecting upon the third type of, of human beings last month that I categorize here in the beginning of our data. And that is, namely the Mana 15. And speaking of them, and last Mandela says, He will do
home a lot
can we actually go on that with regards to the massive losses in their hearts is a not a disease, and a las panatela increases this disease.
And the last panel has prepared for them. Another lien, a wrenching constant, increasing type of punishment, not decreasing punishment, the American we won, because that these people are liars and truthful people.
And so, we've been looking at how the scholars tell us from the products on how, indeed, hypocrisy is the disease. And just like with any other disease, we need to become as believers aware of the symptoms and the signs of it, so that inshallah will stay far away from that. And we've been reflecting up on the signs. Namely, we looked at the first sign that scholars tell us that when the hypocrites speak, they lie. And the second sign that we reflected upon is that they are promised brokers, it breaks their promises, they don't keep whenever their word or their deeds or their actions. The third sign that we reflected upon was with regards to trust whenever and whenever
something's entrusted to them, be it something material being a child, whatever, they break their trust. The fourth sign is that these people, the Menaka paid are lazy with regards to worship. They take mean they take the salon, they take Islam as something as mundane something as a joke, something that's not really, you know, yeah, I believe, but I don't really believe like that Don't be so extreme, or what having some some of the words that you might hear, you know, like, Don't take it so literal.
In the sense on we looked at was with regards to this worship that they ended up still doing with with laziness, they end up doing it for the sake of the people. In other words, they do Aria, which is considered to be minor ship. In other words, they show off. So today, inshallah I want to reflect upon, then what's the second half of this action, to do deeds for showing up.
The next time that the scholars mentioned with regards to the diseases of hypocrisy is the is the sign where we can categorize it and mentioned where
the hypocrites, they're good in front of the people, but when they are alone, they are bad.
Good in front of people, but when alone, they're bad. So it's basically the next step after showing off to the people in front of the people there's a facade there's a there this exterior looks good, you know that that behavior is and what have you It looks good, looks Islamic looks like a believer, but when alone, then the rights the dude the boundary that last panel has put is violated. Namely resumed last lesson on quantify this, and he had it and even magia Abu huraira reports that
people will come on the Day of Judgment with good deeds like the mountains, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will make their deeds to be scattered away like dust. So they're coming with all these deeds that are coming, like the size of the mountains, and when it's presented to Allah, Allah destroys their deeds and scatters it like this. So it means
And the sewer system continued when the Sahaba asked him the question, Will these people not be Muslims and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, of course, they will have prayed as you pray, they would have fasted as you fast, and they will spend that charity of their access well
and will have given their portion of the night in the huddle. However, when they were alone, they would violate the sanctuary or the the boundary of the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So the and this is so the opposite of this, the scholars mentioned to us
is that for us believers, true Eman, true belief is the belief that shows up when we're in front of the people. And that this same belief shows up when we're alone. As Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in certain
number 12 Allah, Allah says in melodien I have shown up the home below Hi Bella Hama Scirocco.
Barely for those who show they they fear Allah subhanho wa Taala.
For them, their rub their master what, so robbing him behind, when they are unseen when these people are alone when they're unseen, the homeless to atone for these people have lost planet Allah has prepared forgiveness, while agilon caddied and has prepared a great reward.
So you're alone
in the privacy of your home.
It's midnight, the doors close, the curtains are drawn. There's a computer, there is the internet. There's the DVD, there's the the movies, what have you. At that moment, one shaytan comes in does this was was and Oh, you're alone, nobody can discover why don't you go check this out or go check that out. At that time,
we realized that our team is watching us they ever watch is watching us. We fear Our Lord, when there's no consequence of the people finding out what we're doing.
But the emphasis is or the opposite of this behavior is what the team do. So in front of the people, they're one way, but when they're alone, they're violating the rights of a muscle.
And this brothers and sisters is very important for us to focus on this type of subject. Because we all know the Summa celestion unquantified that the worst places are the marketplaces, the bazaar, the malls, right. Why? Because when you go to the bazaar, the malls and what have you, it's easy to get into trouble. And you see that just go to the mall. You see youngsters, teenagers on the weekend, and what have you, they have nothing better to do, they're just walking around window shopping, getting into trouble with these, these folks or that folks, wasting time staring at each other, getting into all kinds of trouble.
And solicitation quantified to us and the best places to have a massage in the home. But what happens nowadays is our homes that were essentially before in previous times, that the fitna can so easily perpetrated into our homes nowadays, it's so easy, you know, the difference? You know, with regards to the internet, with regards to DVDs with regards to this Netflix account, where you can just go and have a membership, 1015 bucks, whatever it is per month, you know, and there's hundreds of 1000s of videos and what have you, it's so easy to get into to the holidays. And the century where our homes where we were safe.
The shaitaan can easily
come in through these means to this media with regards to the internet with regards to that flux because the TV DVDs, so www dot halaal Congress www.hyken.com it's just a few keystrokes difference, it's that easy for him
to come into our home.
So inshallah today I want to very quickly focusing upon one case
that was presented when I was researching this topic as a reminder to myself and you by Shakespeare, yes, it was an anon that presents. Many times you guys have peace TV.
Then Islamic 24 hour channel that you can also watch on the internet.
He presented the case specifically of a brother in law
community that had gotten that has gotten addicted to pornography.
Pornography meaning those obviously inappropriate haram
videos, or photos or what have you with regards to women even suffer like men or what have you, depending on whatever their faces the law. So
at some, some people might think in their mind, well, brother, this is not this is not something that we have to worry about. I mean, we're believers, we're Muslims, you know. And
that's true, we're believers, we're Muslims, but you would be surprised. There's probably people, some youth or even some adults in our own community, that have this problem with regards to pornography, or just in general with regards to being addicted to things on the internet. I mean, I was in the Holocaust just a few weeks ago.
one of our youngsters, you know, he was saying, you know, brother, brothers shahidi.
YouTube is such a waste of time. It's like, I sit down, and I'm on my
computer, and I'm trying to do my homework. And I just typed something with regards to this car, that car on YouTube, and then I'm watching this video on that, and that will be on it at that video on that. I don't know, if you guys mess with with YouTube, YouTube is when you watch one. One video just keeps coming with suggestion after suggestion after suggestion. And he's like, I just end up wasting hours on end, and not getting anything accomplished and wasting my time. So that's the thing, it's like an addiction. And it's so easy. So let me just ensure like kind of present the story of this brother, some of the struggles and striving that he did with regards to this
addiction, and inshallah reflect upon with regards to what the scholars tell us in Branson, as far as a means to overcome this type of addiction. So that it's not this branch of hypocrisy, again, where the hypocrite would be good in front of the people, but alone being bad, so that it shall is not applicable to us. So this obviously, this,
this brothers name is not mentioned, they just
shaped as I just called him, brother quartzite. And so I'll just read parts of his story with regards to the problems that he had with regards to this addiction is done downfall, how he got addicted to it, and some of the steps that that he another brother took with regards to overcoming it.
He writes, and I'm just reading directly from his story, he says, You don't realize how self loathing and self hatred a brother has for himself in this day,
in this part of his life, when he remembers what he does, when no one is watching him, but Allah subhanaw taala. Before I begin, let me say that in this story of mine,
before I begin, let me just say that this story of mine, my descent is to sin. I blame no one but myself. I blame no one. But my stuff says, I will do deliberately be vague and some of the things that I mentioned with regards to who I am, and oh, your stomach, you know who I am, but you don't really know who I am. I'm a brother between 25 and 30 year old 3030 years old with my family, and I love them very much. And I've been practicing for many years. I fell into this fitna, when I was a teen, I don't want to go into the details. But soon after I was introduced to pornography I got hooked on it. What found my flame of desire was access to the internet. When I was new to the spin,
I would never have dared to buy a dirty magazine from a local store out of the sense of shame and embarrassment. But the internet made everything accessible to me. And I could see what I wanted when I wanted all in the privacy of my own home. Another problem was that my family resisted when I suggested that I marry at my early ages of 20. Thus the absence of a hollow outlet
with regards to my desires is another factor that brought me to where I am today. You know the story of bud cseh? Yes, he was a famous worshipper from budding Asahi, who was led astray step by step by shavon until the last last action of it was to leave the religion. In some ways, my own story of the last 10 years. It mirrors the story of legacies. So I'll stop there. And I just mentioned this for those people that are not familiar with the story about Sisa that kind of give us this the slippery slope, the downhill that shaytan does with regards to tricking us and falling into sins like this.
But Caesars story is mentioned by
The live in my suit, in which Sula, Allah mentioned that man famous avid, from bunnies. He was worshiper of a lot. There was these three brothers that wanted to go for Jihad distributed law. And they had a sister. And they had no one to take care of the sister, their sister. So they went to Sisa. And said, We want we're going to go for jihad is to be loved. We want you to take care of our sister. And and in the story, but Cece initially resists taking care of his sister, because he knew that it would, it could potentially become a fitna for him to take care of another round like that. But then, in the story, it's mentioned that after some time shake on this one was to him and says to
the effect, look at you, if you don't take care of this girl, you're such a good person, perhaps she'll fall into the hands of a bad person, once you go take care of her, once you take responsibility for her. So he ends up accepting this, this this this was was shaped on and takes this responsibility on. So when you hear in the story, how basically, he had this, this sister of these three brothers, basically in a room, he would barely bring food for her, leave it outside the door, knock on the door, the sister would come take the food. And then after some time she thought meat was supposed to look, what are you doing, every time she's coming out that people could see her
once you take the food and put it inside, so that people don't see her. And then he starts doing that. And then after some time to shut down, that's what's worse, and says, you know, what are you doing, you're not speaking to her, she's so lonely. She's so alone. If you don't speak to her, you're a good person, that perhaps some but some bad people will start speaking to her once you will start speaking to her, and then he starts talking to her. And this slippery slope keeps on going and keeps on going. And so the great but FISA and the story mentioned about the love of my suit, and weddings, and now fornication with regards to this, this girl
and, and she ends up becoming pregnant. And after she has a child that she thought that this was worse, and basically ends up telling her that, you know, when the brothers returned, they find out with regards to what you've done that now you have a baby eligible child with this, they're going to take you to the to the king, or what have you, and you're going to be in trouble. And all the different types of what's worse. So from that sin of doing center boxes and killing this girl, and also killing the child.
So from the from, from a single regards that he was just trying to do something correct or something good. He ends up becoming communities and it ends up becoming, murdering or murdering the child. So that the brothers come in eventually, when he gets cut, and he's going towards his execution check tantrums. And that's what's what's that if you make switcheroo to me, I will help you. And he does do that he leaves the religion of Allah subhanaw taala and then straight on abandoned. So similarly, this brother that's mentioning here, he's saying that it's all a slippery slope, all you need to do is fall into it the first time. And then you get addicted and hooked into it. And it's a slippery
slope from there.
And then the other thing that we need to reflect upon so far with regards to what we read his story is he said there was no halaal outlet for me with regards to getting married. And this is a just a general comment that I want to make with regards to what the scholars mentioned to us, that brothers and sisters, we need to look at our criteria, and we need to look at what we consider to be important. I mean, there's a wire sudo lots of other so he mentioned with regards to marriage specifically said, all young men, if you have the ability to marry, then you should marry. And if you don't have the ability to marry, then you should fast, you should make patient and you should
fast. social isolation encouraged us to get married as soon as you're responsible. But nowadays, if we look at our condition as an online in general, if we look at what the parents look for, Mashallah, it's got to be a PhD. He's got to have a six digit income, it's got to have this car, he's got to have a house got about that. Same with regards to the to the girl, we've made it like so hard for the youngsters in the youth to get married. Nowadays, when you look at the example of during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, it was so easy for people to get married and this halaal outfit with regards to, to to staying within the holler. It was so easy for people to
maintain to maintain that. So this is something very important for us to consider. As an owner. It's a personal thing with regards to each family, but we should just look at look at that situation with regards to what we what we consider to be important. You know, is it really that we're looking at the person who has stopped wha the person that fears the law, the person that worships Allah subhana wa
Allah, maybe he's not the the, you know, doesn't have all the degrees that come with it, but maybe he's a good person, but many times parents refuse the brother or the sister or vice versa, because of these external things with regards to having degrees and having money and things like this. I just want that point. I want to make a just general comment on that, that we should look at. This is a very important thing. I've heard many stories at one brother here personally at Kansas City A few years back, we were talking about this young brother he was talking about, and he's from Atlanta, Stan, originally, instead of trying to get married, but just, you know, nowadays to get married,
just alone to give the, the bride gift that Mahara. It's a minimum that the families are considering is like $10,000 and I don't have $10,000 to give to anyone. So
he's like, Where do I come up with the money like that? So so just just just consider that and with regards to the married marriage itself so heartland some of our cultures, we don't have just like a simple a car with with a Lima SubhanAllah. You look at some some Muslim cultures nowadays, it's like the wedding takes like a whole week. You know, there's a night where you put the hand on the hand, and then the girl goes to the boy's family. And yeah, that night, and you have this idea this night, it becomes like a big goal, one week celebration, costing 1000s and 1000s of dollars.
Very funny video that you guys should go check out on YouTube for Baba Ali, that he talks about $25,000 wedding, you know, and he does this, this calculation with regards to, you know, these weddings that cost a minimum of like $25,000, how much you're wasting at like one minute, how much that comes to like hundreds of dollars permitted in an hour, 1000s of dollars per minute, you're just sitting around, it's just a waste of money spotlights that spending that money towards doing something good, these new couples that start life, they end up going in depth and many times they end up taking comparable loans out in order to maintain the culture, or what's the people going to
say, or your cousin did such and such a wedding, we must do a better way than the cousin. You know, this is this is the kind of problems and diseases that we have with regards to this issue. So this brothers mentioning this is one of the steps that led me towards this addiction of pornography is that I couldn't get married, my family refused for me to get married.
So continuing on, with regards to the story says that my addiction began as something very small. But step by step over 10 years, it has transformed into something which is at time to become uncontrollable. The first time I use credit card on a porn site was after several years of being addicted to it, it was like I crossed the threshold stepped over an important line. And unfortunately, haven't crossed that line, I haven't looked back. And I use that credit card numerous times since then. And that is how, and that is how it is with this thing. You promised yourself for a long time that you won't cross that line. But then you do it and it becomes easy to repeat the
same again. But having crossed that line only once once advances you to the next level of sinfulness. So your first mistake is to look at a woman lustfully then it's looking at free porn site, then it's looking at a porn site and so on. My advice to those who are in the early steps of dissent is to never get into the temptation and never go to the next level. If you admire pretty girls, that's bad. But that's not as bad as searching for these pretty girls on porn websites. It's a slippery slope that ends up in a place where no Muslim should be SubhanAllah. So
I just continue on with the last part of the story because we're running out of time.
He said that this last part of his story says that knowing that I'm a practicing Muslim knowing so now he's talking about some of the solutions, some of the things that that that is helping him inshallah, to get over to this addiction. He says that knowing that I'm a practicing Muslim, knowing that there will be a day when I will stand in front of a loss on one salah and take the route from the sense not having a single plausible, excusable reason to come to my mind, which I can bring on that day is a horrible feeling. So he's saying that on the Day of Judgment, when I stand in front of a loss of Hannah masala and I'm asked about the sin, I'm not going to be able to bring one excuse
one reason one good reason for being addicted to this thing or going to these harm websites. And he said that it's it's the feeling that sickens me every time I tried to make boba for the scent, because while asking forgiveness to Allah, Allah, I feel within myself and it from the knowledge of my pets relapses but I haven't really given it up and I would fall into it again, that is difficult to come to terms with really difficult it's also guilt that comes from leading a double life betraying one spouse. That is not how I want
shallow continue on to the second part
last for forgiving system
ultimate definition of a genius
in a lot of ways are Luna and Abby,
alongside Allah Muhammad Ali, lot's of
So brothers and sisters in Islam we've been talking about
a branch of hypocrisy which we could label as being good in front of the people and being bad alone. And we read the I in the fall of last month, Allah says in
surah mulk ayah number 12, the six seven chapters of Quran last month, the rest is very, for those who fear their Lord, while they are unseen. And also, the scholars of the seed mentioned while a loss of urgency so not only is the last month of residency, but they themselves are unseen, meaning that they are alone.
Last matter, as for them promised forgiveness and a great reward. So this is brothers and sisters in Islam, that this is the opposite with regards to coming over this sin with regards to falling into sin when we are alone.
I will just close with a few thoughts with regards to with regards to overcoming the sin and making Toba with regards to addiction in general ecaade with regards to what his brother quartzite
has with regards to pornography, or any other kind of sin that we have alone like that, brother, I mentioned to her that he said, I'm addicted to looking at videos of cars, sports cars on YouTube, because it just kills time precious time that we do have in this world that we're not going to ever get again.
So with regards to the aspect of Toba?
Allah, Allah says in the prop 39
excuse me in chapter 39, number 53.
bad. In a world
that saved my slaves, my daddy, those who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair, for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, Allah Subhana, Allah forgives the sins, all of them. And indeed, he is the most forgiving, He is the Most Merciful. So when you look at the eye with regards to this addiction in general and addiction with regards to what this brother says, so the scholar mentioned, we should never despair of the forgiveness of Allah. He was talking about how disgusted he felt on making Toba how he felt bad, because he knew he was going to relapse go back to the sin. So here this is telling us that our loss patterns Allah forgives, that those who transgress
the boundaries of the end have transgressed against themselves, do not have despair of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. There was one man that came to me. And he asked, as Italy return on time, he said to him,
what do you do when you commit a sin? And you know the standard answers. We all know how to make Toba. And then the man asked
what do you do when you commit that sin again? He said make Toba or if you fall into it again, make Toba over if you fall into it again, make Toba? And then he said, For how long do we do this? And he said some patent law. He said you keep making Toba until you have defeated should you keep making tobacco
So we should never despair at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we should always be of those who turn to Allah subhanaw taala until the soul comes right here through the neck and get sick enough, we have until that time to make Toba and always return to Allah subhanaw taala should we should never despair of the mercy and the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Another thing to realize that the scholars mentioned here is that we shouldn't blame the shape on we should, we should realize that this is a disease of our knifes of our own stuff. You know, one one brother, just very quickly, quote, because we're running out of time who overcome this disease approached you with regards to what he said. He said, it's much enough to recognize this, I have done so many blind, so many eyes that were repelled even the most obstinate chiffon would feel still feel an intense desire, I realized that it is my own evil and myself. And once you realize this, truly give yourself online truly put your first
step towards making tober that can just be blaming old shutdown and shutdown. It's an excuse. It's our own selves, we have to realize that it is evil within ourselves, and we need to inshallah overcome this shortcoming and this
evil that we have in ourselves. And the final point that I will make with regards to
this, this sin of,
of falling into the sin, especially with regards to the sins of the Internet, and the sense of the TV and a DVD at home. I'll share with you one one story that we had one a moment back in Kansas City, he said, one of the brothers came to him and was complaining about his children and said, My children do not behave well. They're they're always, you know, they're disrespectful. They don't do their salon, what have you. And I give them everything I gave them, TV, their own rooms, they all have internet, they all have their computers and all these things, but yet, they're still disrespectful, and they don't, they're not good practicing Muslims. And you know what that, you
know, the response of the seminar was, he said, that's the problem right there. He said, so. So one of the things with regards to the sin of falling into these haram websites on the internet and this inappropriate movies and TV CDs, and what have you, is that it becomes so easy when you seclude yourself when you put yourself away. So the scholars mentioned, do not do that. Always, you know, just have a policy at home to where if you're going to be on to an internet if you're going to be watching a movie, if you're going to be doing DVD doing during the time when the whole family is there together. Why? Why is it that the kids are allowed, you know, to have their their internet and
their DVDs and what have you at night alone in their own rooms. When they themselves we know that's a hard temptation for them to overcome. So this was the advice of just a mom to this brother that start with with Toba to Allah smart Allah take those things away or the means that the tools of shavon to get your kids have them come to the living room. What does it mean? When we say family room, family rooms means the place where the family gets together and that's where they enjoy their time together. And that's where they are if you're going to be on the internet, you're going to be on watching something on TV, what have you it should be done in amongst the family not alone upon
law. So this is one of the things that I want to mention. There's so many things out other things we can mention with regards to this topic, inshallah. Hopefully they massage it and then
pick up this topic and speak more about it. Also speak about it. But I will end with this that may Allah smart Allah insha Allah guide me you tell us we have those who always remember Allah subhanaw taala as being corrupted, the one who is always watching us the one that is always ever watchful, and that inshallah we maintain ourselves to wear whatever facade, whatever character whatever duties we have in front of the people, that's the duties and that's the facade and that's the quality and character characteristics we have alone. Let's make Gods
proper now that
you're forgiveness of our sins that we do alone in what we do on public projects or shortcomings in accidents, we commit shortcomings instance, in producing things inception, you learn to open
your mouth and seek your protection and the punishment that we seek your protection and judgment. We seek your protection from the health area, blah, blah,
