early days of Islam,
the prophets have a lot more and he was he
gets the very, very early revelation,
a revelation that all of us know about a revolution that brings the message of learning and literacy
and greed in the name of your Lord the one that is created you.
And the profits of overriding the significance here another revelation.
Yeah, you will come in later in the afternoon.
Oh, one who has been wrapped up in a garment stand up tonight except a portion of it.
Half of it a little bit more a little bit less. This is the message that was given last profitsystem is given standard tonight in
a few more days go by and the profits of Obama gets here another message
own family around you who has been wrapped up in a poker game because of the difficulty that you are getting because of the situation that you're going through, stand up now and start calling to pay to this thing start calling to allies apparel gonna start warning people of the year after start delivering the message. So Allah subhanaw taala talked to
him to read for them to read. So he's instructing now the prophets of Allah when he was sent him to learn, after the learning when
he was in them to implement that, and taught them to stand up
them is implemented. A must depend on God to tell them now to call to that implementation.
So that is exactly what we require to do in our day to day life as well. First and foremost, learn about the religion. And after we're done learning about the religion, we practice the religion and after we're done practicing the religion, then we start calling out to this religion. These are the three stages you'll notice right in the beginning of the right now in the mystery street stages during the pause the call this
a portion of time during which there was no wind coming down to
where it was, and this was about 40 days.
So there was the first one and then the second one came down, that part happened and then it wasn't petrodollar, we continued, the way we can download. Portions of revolution came down. And then there was yet another pause. This time the pause was right.
So two revolutions in revolutions, two revolutions that pause it revolutions, and then he reports to revelations, apologies for the days and other revelations that are possible.
And then comes down this particular surah in which a lot of panel data starts out
What the hell? So he takes an old Spanish in the morning time, why does a boss project Why did he get this particular
Slide this particular moment, the prophets of Allah when he
for three nights. At the same time, there's a pause happening, there's no wind coming down, there's no revelation coming down. And as the prophets are synchronistic, he can't wake up for the night prayer. And remember a lots of panel data
except a portion of it. So it was commanded to stagger tonight. But now he can no longer stand tonight, because he's six.
So when you stake and he's going through this tough time, the pause is happening. A lot of projects are expecting you to come down. The Arabs, they said, let's take a cheap shot at Mohammed. So we started to say in hamedan.
Allah indeed, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been forsaken by his Lord, or was handed him either one of those two choices. So a lot to kind of die lessons this
government to control the prophets of Allah warnings in them. And within this is an opportunity to find counsel for everyone that is looking, because I must have found
in a tough scenario, and then you gave him a group of pieces of advice, and he also consulted. So let's look at these advices especially because we have now went back to that old tradition of being in the beginning stages of demo. How is that because the Muslims have left their calling the Muslims have left their religion, and this is talking about the masses of them. That means insha Allah, everyone in this gathering is holding fast, and hopes to hold even faster and stronger in the future. This is a message for us when the data is just starting off.
Why is Alexey?
Remember now the data is just starting off the message of a lot. And his messenger is just starting off. Though it is an interesting message. It is now being brought to humanity from the new messenger and he is in his beginning stages.
So Allah subhanaw taala, to control him in this beginning stage. He says remember that the sun when it comes out, it comes out very slowly. And as it goes higher and higher, there are some lights and people get all people are not all affected by the life. As they get people can still shoot themselves and find darkness. But when it goes further and further, it starts to illuminate. And there's so much light that you can no longer combat that like no matter how many umbrellas you have, no matter how much you do, you can never bring darkness for the lucky panel brought light. And that's why we're the legend talks about in science, he says he's the one who brings
the day to an end and brings the night that he's the one who wins the night to an end and brings the day because what a lot of brings the lights, nobody can take it away. So I was consoling the messenger by saying you're now in the beginning, just as the sun is in the beginning.
The formula time, the beginning of the morning time is in the beginning. It's not that light yet there's not that much light out yet. But when it comes right to the zenith, there'll be so much light that these people will be blinded. The truth will be right in their face. So be consoled. Don't worry, even if it's difficult right now. And ease is right around the corner. When they meet you that's the job. And now talking about the nighttime as well. The nighttime Why? Because the night was very difficult for the prophets of the love readings.
How is the right way difficult for the prophets of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is used to standing up the night in prayer for all of these ones. And suddenly, the prophets are seldom gets
used to getting a revelation from Allah subhanaw taala keeps him rejuvenated. And suddenly the cognitive system can't pray because he's so sick. And the profits of a lower lucidum can connect with a monster.
And the prophets are set up is not even getting revelation from Allah subhanaw taala to the night is becoming ever difficult for us.
And especially a night, which is ajar, which goes into the stage, which allows the paranoia diagnosis, and then the discharge. What does that mean? Then you have a night that goes into the stage of center has a number of qualities, a
very, very particularly why because there's so many meanings to the words again, that's why if you look at the translations of this verse, a number of the translations don't capture all of the meanings that are relevant. Number one suggests a means of light that is dark. Okay, that is extremely dark. So when the Prophet says enemies during this night, it is extremely extremely, extremely dark. So when it's dark, it becomes even more scary.
the night that the pockets are seven. There are lots of panel data is talking about here is the night that is extremely peaceful and still and silent. So it's peaceful.
And it is silent when there is absolute silence. Sometimes people get annoyed, especially when they're thinking about something. And they want to sort of get derailed into another discussion. When the night is extremely still, same thing, it passes slowly, when they're stars outside, and they're moving. And when there's clouds outside outside, and they're moving, you look at those clouds, you're able to, you know, do something else, but the night is extremely pale, and it's extremely silence. So the thought process that the project is going through, it's thinking even harder to do, it's becoming even more difficult for him to hear. The only thing you can do during
this time is thinking about those harsh and ugly and filthy garments that are being directed towards him from the pain. So lots of parallel data quotes by that very nice one, Lady Gaga. I know that night remember, I'm going to take in
the night that you're going through that difficulty that you're hearing is so beloved to me that I'm going to take an oath by it when they leave.
Why is it beloved to me because you're being raised in ranks when they
died, I did not forsake you, it did not leave you and nor does he to
Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah did not forsake you, nor did he
notice Allah subhanho wa Taala when he was talking to the messenger, and you know what, what do we need to do is we need to learn from a laws language towards also the law. So a lot
of people say this is too much and this may lead to this or that. Look at how the prophets of Allah He was somebody who's been treated by a lot in the language that he uses towards the messenger, a lot says, Now,
he did not proceed, nor did he hit you. But when he talks about the hatred, a lie does not even bring the pronoun of the prophet to the law it was similar, he simply says he did not forsake you know, when there is no catch at the end, there is no pronoun saying he, he did not mention simply said he did not eat because the word entrant and those who
do not go together, they're not worth going together. And that's why
when he's talking about the hair trick is simply suffices with the pronoun in the previous group.
And when the prophets of Allah was coming back from the bottom of the group, people came to the prophets on lava Davison. And
they started giving all the excuses to hustle and bustle of life to not be with us anymore. And they said that we couldn't agree with you on the messenger. because of this reason, we couldn't go with you in messenger. because of this reason everybody's given their excuses, a lineup of people, and the project was implemented.
He said no problem. Even though they were all obliged to go so long as they can go up to what they were obliged to go to my specialty on my boundaries, one of the final battles.
Any confrontation that happened during the time, this was the main one that was the final one. So during that time, there was
a commandment from the prophets of Allah by using them for everyone capable into life for everyone capable to leave. But people didn't go they started giving excuses to the prophets of Allah Subhana. Allah said to him, and of course, the prophets I said and didn't have permission from a lot yet to give them permission not to go. So lots of handle diagnosis after a loved one can
be a lot harder. Medina has forgiven him. A lot has forgiven you. Now, let me ask you something. If someone does something wrong, do you tell him I forgive you before you start scolding him and rebuking him before you start telling them off?
when someone does something wrong to you, first thing you do is you make a buddy, you've done something wrong. There's a mistake you've made. And then you tell him but you know what, I'm kind enough to forgive you, rather than one the profits in the long run to get hurt in that manner. Allah says, Remember, I have forgiven you. Why did you do this?
I don't know why a man is forgiving you. Why did you give them permission?
allows forgiving you so you put the forgiveness first, and then he started to scold him, so it doesn't hurt the messenger.
Why did you give them permission?
The point that you would have figured out those people that were telling the truth, and those people that were lying, just wait had you waited until that moment, but remember, I forgiven you anyways.
That's why they say the project
was forgiven for those things that he had committed and those things that he wants to commit in the pockets of a lover and he was infallible anyways.
And then look at the profits of a loved one, he was the one the blind man comes to him, electrodes and look at all of this scenario, Eliza dressing backwards, this special form of edit that he's teaching us to maintain with us a lot to deal with this idea. He says,
a blind man comes to the Prophet, the prophet is sitting with the dignitaries of record is given to them, he finds that giving power to these dignitaries that are important, the only guy significant,
significant. So someone comes to my mind, you know, what's he going to do? What's what change? Is he going to be able to bring?
What does he want to be able to do? So he turns away,
I was a panel with
him, he found that he turned away, and jack
is round, and he turned away because of blind.
Then he turns this speech, and he says, 193.
How did you know that he wasn't going to get better? How did he know that? He wasn't going to menus? Wait, how did you?
How did you know that he wasn't going to accept this.
And be an asset to the believers and he was an asset afterwards.
So when you talk to the prophets, I love it.
And reminding him of his instinct about speaks in the third presence is not directed directly towards him.
And he turned away despite the fact that the message is to the messenger. So a lot of money, told him the reason why he had turned away, he said, because a man that was blind to him and the messages to the messenger anyways, but then when he told him the reason why you shouldn't have done it. Now he goes and starts speaking in the first person again, again, so he doesn't offend the messenger. So
this is the speech of a must have had on without or with the messenger, what is the speech that we obtain? Or what was the speech that we adopt towards? The end comes to us? online, we'll take it seriously. Don't take it seriously.
You know, maybe a difference of opinion, there may be this, do you really understand that this statement is for most of
you really recognize the fact that this is the person that
has chosen over all of his creation? This is the most
pure This is the creation of a massive data? Do you understand that this is the greatest piece of matter that ever existed?
Unless profits? Do you understand that this is a very messenger about who unless panel data directly says you are a part of real character? This is a messenger a lot praises himself?
Do you understand all those things when you're looking at IDs?
On that day, unless you kind of want to call out to them, and then they will decide? And he will say
What did you respond? What would you respond to the messengers, when that statement comes to you take it in that light that this is from the messenger, this is not a joke, this is not your time they can hear it? This is a lot because on that day alone, we'll call out and people will be asked the agenda to move
What was your answer to the messengers, and they will be asked
what was the answer of the people to do? So, you will be asked about this specific question, what was your answer to?
How did you treat the statements of the messengers when So, for a lot of panel diagnosis, when
hyena will come in and and indeed messengers of the mouth while he was your
a fear that is to come will always be better than your fear that is before and after I need somebody to give me an answer.
That is true throughout the whole island Allah subhanaw taala wants to refer to that.
But what is the counterpart of the alpha
is alpha and then there is
that's why there is
Indeed, the audio will be better for you than the first one
that is slightly different than what
he's talking about the alpha. So the comparison is being drawn over here between N and N fouda.
Why, and what's the difference? There is a possibility that
means by means the first isn't the one we like to get those before the hereafter. But there's also another possibility that a more genuine meaning than that, and that is why I must use a different term instead of instead of the transitory like
that, which means that any appearance that you have right now, notice that your fears are only only going to better get better. I was giving you that example of the sun gets right to the top, there is no sun that goes down from the province, it only goes up, it keeps going up further and further and further. And that is why even after the death of
his message, and his call, and his name, kept on going higher and higher and higher. And whenever a person dies, and we give some examples of people that have died in a previous lesson, whenever a person dies, you'll notice that his message begins to go degress goes into a downfall us Nope. But the messenger
are always increasing. They're always on a positive influx is
happening on the Atlanta area, and we'll send them over Oh my god.
She says that.
Whenever a person of status and stature dies, unknown, who is mentioned becomes decreased by about a soldier, whenever you see a question of status that just started,
die, you'll notice that the person will be
gone, he's not going to be able to participate in society anymore. If he was a donor, you will be able to donate anymore people will remember him in the same manner. If he was a person that was a scholar, for example, he won't be able to produce the same sort of knowledge anymore. If there was a person that was a social worker, he will be able to participate in the social causes anymore. But a lost profits of a law abiding citizen, he says when he grew up being with
the kid, and the mention of my father, by a loss of data keeps on rising. It just keeps on increasing, it just never goes down. So the son nagatsuma when we were giving that example or the one time Allah give it at the beginning, it just keeps going higher and the message will always get higher, a large light will never come to an end. When
how you will.
Indeed, the Hereafter is better for you than this transitory life or, indeed, the next station that you will be in will always be better for you than the station you were in previously. So when the prophets a lot while being sent and left from this transitory life, to the grave, what can we presume now, that the prophets of Allah is in a better stage when the prophet will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment, what can we presume now that the prophets of Allah, then will have a better station and that is the station that Allah subhana wa Tada, he calls an alarm and my mood, the very praiseworthy station he was in this life and he will be given an award in the year after he was ever
praised in this life. And you will be given the very praised station, on the day of judgment, this is your messenger
to partner with the IRA will
have assurity and definitely very, very slim to you or something and you will be pleased, unless this weather super. So it was a penalty Allah emphasizes by bringing this love, which is done, according to one of two opinions. So he's saying when you think
you are gifting that he would give to you. Now,
when you give to somebody, can you assure the fact that the person will be happy with your gift,
you can show the fact that the person will be happy for you to give, right? But lots of data is the one who knows exactly what a person wants
is the one that create the hardest.
created, the meanings of the prophets have
said I will give to you and I'm sure you'll be happy you'll be content
Today we're saying when you give in, and
alone will give to you, and you will be happy.
And there's two different types of giving.
There's two different types of giving
airport and an ether, when you give to someone at
the time, so to give that that's more metaphorical giving, giving, giving, when you give to somebody, something that just is meaning for in nature, not something that is a physical thing. It includes things that are physical and things that are metaphorical, okay, things that are physical and things that are amazing meanings, traits, qualities, characteristics, all those are within Kappa. So Allah will give you physical things and indeed he did. Allah prophets of Allah was given so much like that every single time the wealth would come to us, we will not send
them the packets and send them and give it away. A man came to us with a lot of the with the second warning, and he said to the prophets of Allah gives me all these sheets, all of this livestock deposit given to him, he went back to his pupil who said, acceptance
is given to people in a manner that is only a matter of a person who doesn't believe in poverty doesn't think you'll ever become poor, because he believes that
die, I did not apply said and he was at that time more generous to people than
them was more generous during that time to people, then what, then even the wind that is passing, why is the wind that is passing, why not something else that is also similar to generosity, because what the woman that is passing comes in doesn't leave anything. There's nothing that the wind doesn't touch, you can't block off the wind from anything, it will touch every single thing that will touches every single thing, it will touch the car, it will touch the trees, it will touch every single thing. So generosity oversold, a lot going on, especially when you would recycle it would be that much. How was he able to be so generous because Allah gave him and he gave him and he gave them
but a lot of a lot more, it was a choice to look like a slave of Allah subhanaw taala and not like a king. This is your messenger, some of them what so when so Federica
and then when suddenly, you'll be happy
moments in the middle, between your happiness and my gifting. But what happens sometimes we make good gifts to people, they will be happy, by the way why somebody gets a gift card, you give a gift card to the individual, does he get the happiness right? By the way.
By the way, when they purchase something, you're giving them a gift card to
buy something when they go purchase something that they may become happy.
When you go and pay somebody tuition, for example, they haven't gotten the degree yet. You've given them a gift to say, Go and study whether you're a scheme student, go and study Go ahead.
The person will be happy with the way his happiness will come when and if he gets his degree. That's when the true happiness comes and maybe you would have forgotten about him at that point. Have lots of Dionysus the gift that I'm going to give you all the gifts that I'm going to be giving you not just one gift, not just one gift, you're going to be happy with the instantaneously there's no pause between the gift of happiness and contentment. While there
are lots of parallel data sets and other surety soon he will give you when you get to give the profits and losses.
What are you going to give the benefits of lump sum but he doesn't mention anything about
the object that will be given because there are so many bounties that he had given and he continued to give and he continues to give till this day anyone that is following the messenger of Allah
till this day, it is all going in his book of good deeds Well that's all for
after that long prefix Allah subhana wa tada says Now let me tell you,
our now that you are concerned, let me give you the reasons why. I am sure of the fact that I was able to save you
a lot as
a team and
did he not find you in the state of union
emotion and then allow the one who gave you a place to stay? Now, let me ask you, when you're in Austin, do you need a place to stay?
You don't necessarily need a place to stay, you may be an orphan, you already have a place to stay. Right?
So why don't I say that he found
a place to stay for an hour.
Because it's more than that. It's not just Iran, it's not just getting the profits of the law while he was in a place to stay. It's much much more than that. The concept of Iran, the concept of the profits of a loan where he was sitting and having a loss of power with the islands, guardianship at every single moment, is much greater than just a place that's big. It wasn't a place to say and that's why he starts off by saying, at
Wharton, you don't have to house.
Of course, you will always have a place to stay. And that's why sometimes people
may think that what do you mean?
The motion, but then he and his uncle, his grandfather,
already had people taking care of him. But this is not just a place to stay, when you don't have a father, then at times, the Tobia doesn't come up, right. And that's why oftentimes, if you look at the statistics, you'll find people that they don't, and people that have single parents, they don't end up having the same sort of attention of last panel data wants to remind them of that favorite, you came upon such a great character that I said about choosing
a character. That character didn't come out of nowhere, I took care of you. I took care of you, I was the one that was giving you guardianship when you had to guardian.
According to, according to under the meaning of instance, okay.
was the one who gave me other. He was the one who gave me that Father secret, he was the one who corrected my weights. He was the one who did all of that for me. And he did a very good job for us. And
he did a very, very good job.
saying he gave you a place to live? Why didn't you just say I was the one who took you as my son, for example? Why do you think that could have been the case, I was the one who did going into free because, of course, then people may start ended up ending up justifying the same mistakes that the other nations fell into, by considering the their messengers as sons of God, the the Jews, he said, he was the son of God. And by the way, modern research has proven that there was a time in history where Jews used to say there is a system of Jews, they not say that, but at some point in history, they did use to say that. And of course, the people that are Christians, they said that Risa is the
Son of God. So
what do you think people will say?
the same thing. You are the ones that are swayed away from New Orleans for our last panel data, picked a few unique words, so nobody can ever say that. He was the one who paid you house. He was the one who took care of you throughout every station of life that you went through.
Unlike the panel dialogue continues, and he says
an ally found you misguided, does that make any sense to you was misguided?
Does that make any sense? It doesn't make any sense to john. It doesn't make no sense. Profit wasn't misguided. What is bond mean? You have to understand that sometimes words have more than one meaning not just one meaning the word God means. Last times. The one bond means someone that has forgotten. The word God also means someone that is confused about two matters and an ally giving guidance. So you can do a number of things. It could mean the time where the profits are
lost as a young child, you know, when young children gets get lost, especially if there are parents with you not because what happens to them.
They're lost for good and they may be begging on the streets now. So he was lost at the gate
or somewhere far away. And he found his own way home.
he was the one who guided you so far. It could mean over here that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was
he was in confusion.
In one way, people are worshipping idols people are making pull off around the camera naked people are drinking people are womanizing, people are doing all sorts of things. So the prophets on the wall and he said to me before
What's the current mistakes? So you may be confused. So as he was confused a lot of my viewers
So it wasn't nice guidance that led to that afterwards. By
the way, the next
one of them may end up forgetting to
remind the rest forgotten, as in those who were allowed to cuddle without it talks about the finger witness.
which simply means forgetting so he may have forgotten something.
These are all the meanings of the word bond, it doesn't mean a large pockets of so that was misguided. As a Christian,
all of these scenarios Do you really think now I will for taking these people that are coming and saying to you that we don't think that Ally's done anything to His Messenger is once in this past enlightened a lot. somehow God has no longer sending out revolutions to him. And also he thinks we can wake up.
This person has now lost his
job that he used to think about
I was taking care of you,
and left in a state of poverty, unless you
were going through difficult financial times, yes, you were raised up in wealth. And even then, I found someone that was able to take care of you and your child, a nice
parents, because they didn't expect any returns on that investment. But alas, go find somebody for
you. So a lot of times, and he took care of you adopt him, and
then he wasn't willing to kill you.
He was the one who put the idea in mind that we do trade agreements with him so that he may be able to get some money
was going to be a good business way.
To do some trade with this man, maybe you become a good businessman. And then that's exactly what happens. He becomes a very good businessman. And she sees the honesty, integrity and character, but also like to recognize the character of people when you do business with them. So she says, despite the fact that the dignitaries of Mecca want to get married to her, she says, could you would you like to get married, and the profits of marriage. And now the project is very to the wealthiest women in America.
He's now in June in the state of poverty. And he corrected that for you and he gave you
What was it?
Now that you looked at all of those proofs, now that
all those matters, now that I told you all about this.
Look now of what you're supposed to do, stay focused on your goals in my
direction. When people are coming to you in doubt, remember, brothers, sisters, you're going to get out people are going to come to you from every angle, they will try to attack you will try to shoot you down. They'll try to have
campaigns against you. They'll try to have all sorts of things and sometimes baseless things. shavon is playing games with Debbie
Shabbat, is playing games with these pagans who can do the profits of a lower level set them remember at the beginning of
his 30 days.
Why because he wasn't getting anywhere.
He wasn't getting anywhere in 14 days, pause and they didn't say anything about the fact that your goal is for sake of
making all sorts of power cleans, they didn't say anything, because at the moment hadn't gotten anywhere, some of our news, but when they started to get somewhere, the first woman decided to get point a finger at it, he still started pointing a finger. So similarly, when you go in this direction, no matter where, what exactly is your role in that direction, you will find people continuous action people will say things about you people will say all sorts of evil nasty things. Your
Life doesn't stop there. Your days off instead of stopping yourself there. You continue. That's why when a lot consoles the messenger right away even how to continue is that.
As for that often that comes down
to take care of you when the orphan comes to. Your dog has to go and take
them down. But
don't turn them down is the open is coming and asking you do not turn them down. Now whenever you hear from this point onwards a fundraiser
For an orphanage go and be the little pockets of love and things like he's been through the wringer when an orphan is coming to you do not turn it down for that, to turn into something. And it's very easy. All of us credit cards, I've been online, what are some really fun, that's trusted, and you can find yourself in corporate and to sponsor 30 bucks a day, do yourself a favor
And the person who takes care of it
will be like these two fingers in general. So do yourself a favor 30 bucks a month. And then Steven for everything you call your house.
University funding, a lot of things 30 bucks
30 bucks a month, spending that when you're going out with your friends know that to handle that. Just stop that one, given that opportunity. One person is going to be rooting for 30 bucks in one for an entire month. And you know, what's gonna happen to you will be making an implementation or direct implementation of a commandment that was given to the prophets or something in the very early stages of power. And you'll also be given getting an opportunity to possibly be repurposed with the pockets or learning center in general.
And as for a person that isn't working, then don't let them down.
As for the person who comes in ask you a question to turn them down. When a person comes and gives you or asks you a question, if you see a person that's homeless on the street, and he's not a sign, of course, the sign is a sign says, I need to buy drugs. You know, sometimes people actually have the audacity to do that. Okay, I'll say in that case, don't give them any money. But if you see him and he's actually legitimately looking for money, don't say all these people just do this and do that you're not supposed to judge people. You're not supposed to judge their intentions, even a tradition, which says even if a person comes to you I'm talking about was given money.
distribution, even if he comes to you are
the one that looks at people's hearts alive is the one who takes care of the people's hearts, you simply give if someone's asking
you when the machine is doing a fundraiser, you say these people are so guilty, they're stealing all their money, and they don't do anything.
The only thing that's happening is deep down inside, you don't want to give one you don't want to give them money is very, very, very, very costly, very, very primitive. It is enough. It is a beautification of this life, and valuate
the world and children are glorification of this life. So the beautification of this life is overcoming you, to the degree that your imagination is letting you go a direction and making you believe something where you don't actually believe it. That's not what the reason why you're not getting the money. You don't want to give it you don't want to get it. And so you see all these people are stealing. Think about you live in your house. $5,000 salary, where's all the money go at the end of the month, we're talking about running a center, where hundreds of
1000s of people come to the times in one month. People use the water people use
as well. But people use that as well. People use all sorts of facilities, light bulbs, when you start falling apart and breaking the electricity, the air conditioning didn't break salaries of people that work in the
expansions. People that are coming as guests here truth in hospitality
expenses, people are stealing your money, but you're giving yourself excuses. Why because you don't want to do it. The best of you when a questioner comes to you gave one Messiah even if it's a little bit, don't do it. You know, don't do something you can do, even if it's a little bit at least kill
And also as far as for the blessing of you do not
tell people about it. I have to
tell people about it.
He said it will
take care of your fish by hiding them.
controvert contradictory. In one thing he's saying all your fears, manage them and take care of them by writing them another one a master cannot guarantee that
the Blessings of your Lord and tell people about the blessings Doesn't that sound like a contradiction?
Tell don't tell tell don't tell
in what he's saying. Don't tell people this will help you finish it at first. This will help you take
Have yourself in what he's saying when you have a blessing from God and tell everybody
they said the way to reconcile between these two is that you tell everybody about the general blessings in life that are common with everybody who continues to remind one another, about the blessing of Allah has given us
a lot of data has given us security and Allah subhanaw taala has given us food to eat for nourish the people out there that don't have food to eat, there are people out there the good healthcare systems, there are people out there that don't have this stuff. The point is the general questions, and those are the ones you bring up. And the primary general lessons in life are
food, security, and health. And I tried to elaborate and he was and then he said
to me, forget it. Do
you ever wake up in the morning and your security? Well, actually yesterday, and he's also healthy at the same time?
To me, and he has enough food to eat for the day that Allah has given him all of the blessings of this world. And that's why the primary blessings in this world are these two investments in the hands of the army, I have, I can almost swear by a lot that almost every single person in this room has that
every single person in this room has that. Right? Because God has blessed you so much that is the blessing.
So when it comes to the blessings of Allah remind one another all the time Do not forget do not take this for granted. If there's someone out there that is dying with a basic disease, you know what these days
pulled by something started to get sick? Why? Why do you think he started to get sick?
When he got
to take antibiotics, why?
Come on guys, how
they use it, they start to get an injection. That's why. So simple things like that can cause an infection
doesn't cost you anything over here in other parts of the world, but they're not so fortunate or simple. Because we had cough or die or something.
ever died in this country of obesity and they're not dying.
You have so much to hear if you've got anything.
So remember the lessons have always remained one of the lessons of of love, but the primary blessing that was given to me was the profit. So when we started to say to the Prophet,
the prophet that
the Lord has forsaken you you hope no one has left you he doesn't like you.
I'm a profit protects your profit to them.
And stand tall. And that's why when people nowadays decide to change their names for motive, they start to change their name from Amina to me and they start to change and they start to change their names from one thing to another. They're no longer
they're no longer practicing this will not that the prophets are
commanded to practice being proud of you
know what I do sometimes when I'm when I call somebody and you know you're trying to spell something out you say aim for alcohol and before evolved and for my goal, I stay employed.
And so I stand tall with my religion said
You know, when was the last time you heard of people that we were dignify them, consider themselves something loaning themselves to somebody else. Don't change your name for somebody else. If you can't pronounce it, you want to learn how to pronounce his right for those of you that are first generation Americans, you want to learn
especially in this city.
Come You are the one who has to say that let this person have a name that is going to be able to pronounce you tell him your name just as it is when I talk to people
just like that. So
what I do
just like when you talk to somebody and your name is
your name is Amina.
All the pronunciation. This is your identity. This is your identity as a Muslim. Another name that's fine as well. But the point is that don't shy down for your from your identity as a Muslim and this is what the prophets in the long run he was in them was being played at this time that you're writing the beginning.
But you're required not to shut down, is the bigger nerves come to you and there's peer pressure and you think that they can overcome you because
you're supposed to give it to him just as it is.
required to do certain things you are required to go ahead and do it, you are required to go ahead and do it not to be a religion.
The first step to the rocks in this world and they get often bu shine down into a strength, you won't shy down. If you're powerful, you are courageous. And that's why qualities like lying
down, the people that shy down and people who don't have credit, if you're courageous, you're a true man. You're a true woman, then you're gonna stand up for it sometimes. I'm shocked at the fact that the woman has more identity as Muslims are women have more identity as Muslims, that's that men are women and
then the men themselves, the men, sometimes they see their sisters who don't want to hang out with them, especially the ones that she was abused. They don't want to hang out with them because this woman is gonna leave him with that. And all eyes are gonna be on me when I'm by myself nobody wants to be with my mom is with
or by yourself. You're the one who's supposed to stand up for your religion and never shy down. This is what the
game is being told here.
