00:00:39--> 00:00:40

with your brothers,

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

I want to tell you

00:00:43--> 00:00:50

of a hadith that was resorted reported by a no Nawaz even some man well the Allahu Allah and

00:00:52--> 00:00:56

the Sahaba he told us that the prophets Allah Allahu Allah He was saying sallam said

00:00:58--> 00:01:06

that Allah strikes a parable, Allah strikes an example, Allah gives an example

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

of the straight path.

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

And he tells us there on the two sides of this path are walls.

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

And in those walls, Allah has made doors

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

and those doors have shades on them.

00:01:28--> 00:01:37

And in front of the path at the entrance of the path, there is a color. And above the path, there's also a color as well.

00:01:39--> 00:01:46

And this color, each one of them is saying a you have nurse, old people, old people.

00:01:48--> 00:01:53

Old Hello serata Jimmy Allen, enter this path altogether.

00:01:54--> 00:02:02

When at the heart, Raju and don't go into the doors on the right, and don't go into the doors on the left as well.

00:02:05--> 00:02:39

And this color is in front of the path right at the door at the Gateway. And there's another one on top of the path as well. And whenever someone tries to walk through this path, and they want to go to the doors and they start looking at the shades, and they try to pull those shades, then these colors they say to this human being. They say why you have color deaf Tahoe for in Nikka infradata who allege that they say Woe to you do not open those doors because if you try to open these doors, you'll enter into them.

00:02:41--> 00:02:48

And the Prophet now I explained this similarly. And he said this path is the path of Allah who visited

00:02:49--> 00:03:02

this path. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is Al Islam. And he said those boundaries that you see on the side there the boundaries of Allah and the doors are the doors to haram.

00:03:04--> 00:03:16

And that color the prophets of Allah who it was said Lim said at the door is the book of Allah azza wa jal, if you want to be on the path of Allah, then you've got to stick to the book of Allah.

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

In the Quran every single day, every single day,

00:03:23--> 00:04:09

we ask Allah and we say, Dena Sirata, I'm stuck in, or Allah guide us to the straight path. And we read the surah on a daily basis as a bare minimum 17 times a day. And we make dua to Allah to guide us to the straight path. And on the very next page, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, this is the book, there is no doubt within it, who the limitata in it's a guidance for those people who have Taqwa. So the Prophet in this hadith is illustrating the same meaning that this path the prophet is describing is the book of Allah who is at will. And the prophets of Allah who had he was said lamb, he said, and as for the other caller, as for the other color that's above the path, that is the word

00:04:09--> 00:04:53

I love Allah, if you have equally movement, or if you can be quickly Muslim. That is the administrator of Allah, in the heart of every single person who believes this hadith is reported by Imam Muhammad didn't Is it a Muslim, but your brothers, there's a color of Allah in your heart. Your heart is able to tell you right from wrong, so long as you haven't corrupted that heart, your heart can feel that I'm about to do something that is pleasing to Allah, and it can feel that I'm about to do something that is displeasing to Allah who will visit you will Jalon but the only time that this heart can feel this is if you allow the Kitab Allah the book of Allah to be your guide. When you

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

enter this path and you walk along the path. More and more you start to get muscle memory in the interim.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Have the direction and your heart begins to figure out what's right from wrong innately through the nature that Allah has already placed within you and I, Allah has given us that admonished her internally. Ask yourself last time you were sitting by yourself about to commit something haram, didn't you feel that in your heart? Some pain? Didn't you feel some restriction within your heart? Didn't you feel restricted internally? Didn't you feel like I shouldn't be doing this? If there was someone here to watch me, I wouldn't do this, but you tried it once. You tried it twice. You tried it a third time, and you tried it a fourth time until you kill that color within your heart.

00:05:42--> 00:05:57

So Allah has innately created this color, this ad manager. You don't need to have people giving you speeches, Allah has made a wireless in your heart. Allah has made an administer within your heart. But don't kill that admonishing.

00:05:58--> 00:06:34

But when you don't kill that admonished her, you hone it, you give it, you nourish it, you nourish it with righteousness, then you get more guidance. Allah says in the Quran, we're living in a Jaha do fina, Lana Deanna home sabula Anna, those people who struggle in our paths, we give them guidance, even more. So they already weren't guided. Because of the administrator in their heart, they already felt the pain when they did something wrong. They already felt guilty when they broke one of the boundaries of Allah or cross them. But now they've gotten even more guidance because they're,

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

they're working hard. They're struggling in the path of Allah who has to do.

00:06:40--> 00:07:25

So there is an intuition internally within your heart. You have to awaken that intuition that's in your heart. You have to awaken that feeling that's within your heart. And that's why even those people who are non Muslims, when they come to Islam, many times they'll tell you I already felt like this was the right thing. Because they've got this deep rooted intuition, this consciousness that's already been placed by Allah within your hearts. It's there. Allah told us of this intuition, this consciousness when he said one of sin, one master wa for Allah Maha voodoo, Raha Taqwa that this neffs that Allah had created and perfected it, and then Allah through intuition, it told this knifes

00:07:25--> 00:07:37

what's right and what's wrong. So there's a level of ability within every single human being so long as they don't corrupt that soul of theirs, for them to be able to tell the right from wrong.

00:07:38--> 00:08:27

The first time someone does evil, no matter who they are, even if they're non Muslims, they feel it. But then as they see that evil being normalized over time, that normalization, it ends up desensitizing human beings. And what I want you to do is I don't want you to allow yourself to be desensitized. When you see the boundaries of Allah around you being violated, remind yourself, don't laugh. Don't make a joke out of it. Remind yourself that these are the boundaries of Allah that are being violated. That what is happening around you is a violation of what Allah wants from you and I and humanity at large, if you are desensitized, that's not the right place to be in because that is

00:08:27--> 00:08:32

the beginning of You, yourself also being able to violate Allah's boundaries at that point.

00:08:33--> 00:09:12

So there is enough in you, there's a soul in you, there's a heart in you, that has the ability to recognize truth and recognize falsehood but you have to hone this talent that Allah has placed within you. And that's why Allah says and he continues and he says, had a flood Hammond Zeca Ha, this feeling that Allah has created within your enough's, that you can tell the right from the wrong the person who tries to nourish this feeling the soul, this internal reality within him, which is not physically tangibly seen empirically tested, but you can feel that consciousness.

00:09:13--> 00:09:27

If you take that and you hone it, you nourish it, you keep focusing on it, you keep developing it, you keep getting closer to Allah until that becomes more and more rooted, and more and more founded within you.

00:09:28--> 00:09:32

Then Allah says that is the person who will succeed. But if lemons or girl

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

work at herberman, DISA, and thus, you do so literally means to cover something up. There is another person who doesn't hone that talent, that internal talent, that internal feeling, the consciousness, they don't own it, they don't nourish it, they keep trying to kill it. Every time they find an opera tunity to violate Allah, they violate Allah every time they do

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

Find an opportunity to laugh and to make mockery of the boundaries of Allah they make mockery of the boundaries of Allah. This person begins to kill himself internally until

00:10:14--> 00:10:41

you get to a point where you're completely desensitized, so you can't feel that right from wrong anymore. Allah had given you the key, you chose to take that key and bury it. Allah doesn't want you to bury that key. Allah wants you to use that key to righteousness. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to direct us in our children towards righteousness. Allah Hama, Amin was sallahu wa ala Sayidina Muhammad in Mohalla. Early he was rbh

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

Alhamdulillah him then he was in Yama who you can say almost Ada, or SallAllahu, ala Sayidina, Muhammad wa ala early he was so happy Ultramarine

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

but your brothers

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

and your sisters

00:10:57--> 00:11:21

once upon a time the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting in a gathering or all of the Sahaba or many of the Sahaba were gathered around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a man by the name of Weibel saw, he came walking. And he told the Companions Move aside, I need to get closer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they would say,

00:11:23--> 00:12:09

to not move closer to the prophets of Salam, there's already people over there, and the prophet from afar heard that wabi sabi is asking to get closer. So the Prophet said, move aside and let why Bill saw come close. He said, this one's he said this twice. And he said it a third time. And then people moved. And he came in this hobby sat before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the Prophet SAW said, Let me said that, do you want me to speak? Or are you going to speak? Do you want to ask your question or do you want me to tell you what you're going to be asking me? hadith is authentic, reported in the most notable Imam Muhammad, so the man he said, that you speak of Prophet of allah

00:12:09--> 00:12:53

sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Gee, that is a low annual bill, you have come, or while Bill saw asking about righteousness, you have come asking about sin. So I have also said yes, that's what I came for. I came to ask you, oh prophet of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam had vilasa he was able to tell things through intuition. And this is a divine gift by Allah azza wa jal, people have it at different levels. And sometimes people have it in on one occasion, but they don't have it on another occasion. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been given the lion's share of it. So rasool Allah, He said, you've come to ask about

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

righteousness.

00:12:56--> 00:13:14

And he said, Yes, that's what I've come for. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, to rob your sock, he said, Ya your sock, is the the URL back. What's the FT enough sec? He said, Ask your heart and ask your soul.

00:13:15--> 00:14:02

And then he said, we're in a circle, move tune, even if other modalities they give you every fact to our Ask your soul. Now this is a directive of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to this hobby because he knew that this hobby has a pure soul. So when a person has that purity within them, the prophets Allah, Allahu Allah, he was setting Sallam wants such people to rely on their souls. And the reason why I'm mentioning this is because if we nourish ourselves as well, there is a full on, there is a criterion that Allah allows our hearts to have through which we can tell the right from the wrong. But when you keep on making the heart, filthier and filthier by looking at the Haram by

00:14:02--> 00:14:48

thinking of the Haram by doing the Haram by eating the Haram by involving yourself in the Haram by eating the flesh of your brother, by doing every violation that you can of Allah by drinking, by involving yourself in illicit relationships. Then will you have this heart of why bizarre you will not have this heart or why Bissell I will not have this heart of web Elsa. I will not have this heart that can tell the right from the wrong. My brothers and my sisters if you want to be true believers, the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam he told us in a hadith law you may know how to come hit the corner haha whatever Allah magic to be, none of you will become true believers until

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

your desires

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

become subject to what I've been given. You have to not only subject your actions but also your desires.

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

Your feelings need to feel for Allah. If your heart is inclined towards the Haram, that means you haven't reached a high level of belief yet. When you get to a point where your belief is perfected, you won't like the Haram, that very haram, that the hearts of the people who have hearts that are ill desire. Those very hurt or not those boundaries of Allah, you would hate for them to be violated. When you see the Haram or it's presented before you, you don't fall prey to that haram you're disgusted by the Haram because when Allah He led the La ilaha illa, who, if you look at the Haram, every type of haram, if you look at it objectively, there's always some reason for you to be

00:15:49--> 00:16:20

disgusted by this haram. If you look at alcohol, look at what happens to people when they drink alcohol. Look at what happens to people, they lose this intellect that is the discerning factor between a human being and an animal. That intelligence that Allah has given you the knifes and the consciousness that Allah has given you, the people who drink they end up destroying the only thing that's different between us that's different between us and animals.

00:16:22--> 00:16:45

When someone involves themselves, in illicit relationship, then what happens? We have so many Wallahi cases of brothers who are apparently practicing and sisters who are apparently practicing fell prey to their desires, and then they regret it for the rest of the remainder of their lives because they're tested by some sort of transmitted diseases.

00:16:47--> 00:17:34

If that is itself not disgusting enough, what is going to disgust you if you allow your intellect to overrule your desires, if you allow faith to overrule your desires, you would never allow yourself to fall prey to your desires because the desires are going to lead you to destruction. They will leave you to destruction, any haram think of it, whatever it may be, if it's a lie, it's going to destroy your life. Sooner or later Allah says acaba manif, dada, the person who lies that person will be destroyed. Because sooner or later if you're living a lie, people will realize those lies and they won't let you go. Everything that you have developed on Allah will fall the day that lie

00:17:34--> 00:18:19

becomes recognized. And that goes for every single thing that is haram. My dear brothers, Allahu Allah de la ilaha illa who the Haram is just a mirage. And Elijah Have you once mentioned, in one of his books, he said that Allah has never made something haram except that he's allowed for there to be a Hulen of the same genre that he has made haram. If there are drinks Wallahi there are 1,000,000,001 drinks you can drink. If it is relationships, you can get into a halal relationship. If it's a lie that you're trying to get us to get some sort of worldly possession. Haven't you seen people get worldly possession through truth? Many people get worldly possessions through through

00:18:19--> 00:18:43

truth, those who lie the day people recognize that they're liars, they understand they're charlatan charlatans, and they're shocked down in court cases against them. All of the wealthy, accumulated on lies and finishes, it's gone. It's a mirage. So the Haram creates within this world, a mirage. That's what it does. These economies that are completely based on

00:18:44--> 00:18:54

fractional reserve systems, creating money out of nothing. The day something goes wrong, you have a billion dollar company that goes from billions of dollars.

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

And the market valuation of this company is completely gone because it's all based on haram.

00:19:01--> 00:19:29

When you base and you make the foundation of whatever you're doing halal, that is what Allah Allah has to stand. This is what Allah will allow you to stand. This is how a lineage is established. extramarital relationships will give you a progeny. They will give you children who are not associated to you, they're biologically yours, but they're not really yours. My dear brothers and your sisters

00:19:30--> 00:19:39

don't make your gods your desires. Allah says federal aid them and other ILAHA what Allah Allahu Allahu Allah.

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

Have you seen that human being who's made his God, his desires, especially the young people I asked you by Allah don't make your desires your God. Today. There are so many isms. Every ism is calling you. They're calling you away from Allah there

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

Calling you away from the deen of Allah. There's Keifa you know there is enough insufficiency within the deen of Allah subhana wa Taala you don't need hedonism. You don't need this ism and you don't need any of these isms. You need Allah and you need the Rasul of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to allow us to hold faster his book. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to hold fast to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam

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

Tina for dunya Hassan,

00:20:32--> 00:20:45
