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

Dallas local cinema

00:00:08--> 00:00:08

festival

00:00:16--> 00:00:16

Americans

00:00:19--> 00:00:19

are trying to sell

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

to

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

find

00:00:36--> 00:00:37

a cafe.

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

We're talking tonight about

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

lady B all

00:00:54--> 00:01:07

the reason why the life of was laid in reality, they need me to talk about this because personally I identify with it fully to yell at me and I believe controlling global data as we learn more and more about it,

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

you'll find yourself also identifying with it fully. And so late is actually a man that many of us can identify with.

00:01:15--> 00:01:40

I mean, if we think about the beginning of the life of this lady, we'll find ourselves identifying with it, when we think about the different junctions that the lady went through, we will find ourselves in some capacity identifying. And when we think about also, the end of his life, like all of us will also face an end in our own lives as well, we'll find ourselves identifying with where they are.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

Okay, so who is this person by the name of it

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

really happens to be from Arabia.

00:01:49--> 00:02:36

But we know that within the first century of is now, this was a an era, this was a time in which there happened to be a lot of conquests, all around the Muslim lands. So the Muslim legend happened to be expanding much of what we know, today, to me the Muslim lands, they actually happened to be a result of what the conquests that took place during that time during that era during that phase during the first couple of 100 years. Right. Especially the first 200 years, this was a time where there was conquest, one thing after another, and even if some of the other lands would be recaptured by the original people of that night, there will be further liberation further attempts to to free

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

those lands as well to Islam. And this occurred

00:02:41--> 00:03:28

as well let me out of the mean, he happens to be a second generation individual from one of these legs. His father is likely an individual individual who happened to be in an army that had set to free and liberate the lands that we know as the number of collapse that happened to be beyond the river. Okay, whenever you hear the word landslide having to be beyond the river, they're talking about what we know today's modern age, Pakistan, right. Okay, because from the one hand, it's covered by a river and from the other end, it's also blocked by river so it's kind of seeped in by two rivers, Jae Hoon and Seiko in classic Arabic words are referred to these two rivers s. j. One

00:03:28--> 00:03:44

and sable, they happen to be these rivers happened to be there today as well, most of that happens to be between these two rivers. Okay. So that's why they call these lands because more often now, lands that happen to be beyond the river. So

00:03:45--> 00:03:58

the new means born in this land. But as I said, his father is likely from the people who are sent by the Muslim Caliphate, to try to liberate these lands is born in the city of Santa

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

Monica actually has a very, very unique story in how the people

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

are discussed that other cases. So he was born in

00:04:11--> 00:04:26

the city of Santa Ana, which happens to be one of the greatest cities in that region. In the year 107. After the age of the profits of a loved one, it was seven for the year 725 common error, okay.

00:04:27--> 00:04:45

Then, shortly after his birth, he moved over to another city, not too long after his birthday moved over to a place called heavy wet. Currently, we don't know about this place part of the world. But nonetheless, it used to be a region at that time. And maybe the names changed over time. It has a different name today.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

This city geographically lies between the city of Sachs and NASA. Whenever you heard the word Maasai it's referring to that area. Okay.

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

This is the place that he's raised up. As he's growing up when he gets to his 20s he moves over to is the land of his origin because I told you he's from Arabia, isn't it? So what's the land his origin, he happens to be from Kufa, he happens to be from at all. So he's a, Goofy is that he's a demean.

00:05:22--> 00:05:27

And by birth, he happens to be from Uzbekistan in the modern sense, okay.

00:05:29--> 00:05:42

But when we ask, so far, this person really seems like a very foreign individual to me has nothing to do with me. We're in here in Malaysia. And I believe there's probably no one here from at all. And I also believe there's probably no one here from us focused on

00:05:44--> 00:05:56

that, that this person is very, very dear and dear to us. This is where the question begins. By the time he moves to goof up, we don't know of any sign of

00:05:58--> 00:06:18

Mimi being close to a lot of ways. Rather, we know quite the opposite. We know that the filet mignon er was a very big troublemaker, used to make a lot of trouble in the world act. We know that the people around

00:06:19--> 00:06:27

the region within which he was stationed and the one in between and the one that stops people that will travel from these two cities, they would know

00:06:29--> 00:06:42

me by name, they knew exactly who filleted is Why? Because Philemon used to be a highway robber. Okay. Used to be a higher rocker. Now, you might still say that highway robbery

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

so

00:06:51--> 00:06:56

so he wants to get the seat right in front so he gets all the information.

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

So four lane

00:07:01--> 00:07:35

highway robbery, I've never actually done that myself as well shaped. So why are you saying this person is close to Earth, and this person is near to us. If one has, of course been involved in sins, like pirate robbery, we know that all of us are involved in one sin. Right? So fully in reality is living and leading this very, very simple life. So much so that for Lillian's chasing after a woman, okay. filleted is actually Liberty's chasing after a woman to that degree. And all of this is documented within history. Okay?

00:07:37--> 00:08:13

One day as he is madly in love, love with this woman is chasing after he's going after her. He's climbing a wall fully, is climbing a wall to do what is climbing a wall so that he can get to the room of this woman that he is madly in love with. Okay, as he's doing that suddenly and remember the houses for bold were not like the house as of today. Okay, so it will be very easy for you to hear what's going on inside. In the middle of the night. Suddenly he hears someone reading the phrase and he hears insane

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

and tuckshop

00:08:21--> 00:08:32

is it not time for the people who have believed that their hearts become their hearts become humble for the sake of a larger project and for the remembrance of Allah

00:08:35--> 00:08:53

socialblade is on a wall now he's trying to climb to go and meet his lover, the woman of his dreams. And she's also waiting for it as well as he's on the wall. And he's hearing this reminder from someone bringing a drink out loud. He turns to the heavens and he says

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

by law It is now time.

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

Surely

00:09:02--> 00:09:12

it is time. It is time for the people who have believed for their hearts to become hungers for the remembrance of Alonzo genuine for the for the words of law.

00:09:14--> 00:09:35

So he's in the middle of the night committing a sin and he hears it. I have this one I have turns his entire life upside down 180 degrees. So he walks away from this woman. And it's nighttime, you can't really do anything. He goes and finds a deserted area and settles down over he goes into town and it's deserted.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

He's now settled in this deserted area.

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

Now, as he's sitting over, he thought no one else is here. But suddenly he started hearing some voices. Ladies started to see people or hear people that are talking to one another and some of them are saying let's travel okay, because it's nighttime and in Arabia and other than Reagan in the past, especially people

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

We prefer traveling at night for a number of reasons. Is there a security? That is one of those reasons we'll be there?

00:10:08--> 00:10:49

Right? So they're thinking about traveling. But one of them says, look, our travel is actually between themselves. And you all know that there happens to be a highway robber, and they're naming it by name. They say Colin Moriarty is going to be on the streets. He's going to be out on the streets, and he's going to mothers. Okay, and Philemon is hearing this entire conversation. So emerges from the darkness. And these people are discussing and you're afraid of delay, I believe sincere if mindful, like they could just imagine the feeling of these people, right. They're concerned about traveling ahead, they traveled, they would have gotten away from too late. But the

00:10:49--> 00:10:57

other allies that would have had it, the link was right in front of the lady said to himself before he emerged and made himself he said to the panel,

00:10:59--> 00:11:20

he said, I commit to subsistence at nighttime. And here are these people, they are concerned about these Muslims, they are afraid of me, they're afraid of me, coming back. And Robin, the lady walks up to them. And he says that, go ahead, go ahead and drop.

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

Travel for I will now promise a lot.

00:11:26--> 00:11:35

I will not take an oath to allow homeowners to do that. from this point onwards, I will never ever disobeyed a lot.

00:11:37--> 00:11:51

And it didn't stop there just to secure them further. And you see people that have the fear of the lady said this night tonight, I'm the one that will be hosting it. So he hosted all of them, he brought them for dinner. And the beginning of the

00:11:53--> 00:11:53

beginning.

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

This was just the beginning of the dodo.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

Lee is that every single

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

aspect of

00:12:07--> 00:12:52

us, whether that be highway robbery, or whether that be diagnostic, our brothers and sisters, whether that be us looking down upon people, when we know that we're not supposed to be looking down upon people, whether that be us using foul language, and language that ends up ends up hurting our fellow Muslims. All of these are manifestations of a form of the urgency phase of belief within our lives. And all of them require for us to repent back to Allah. But what's important is notice the isolated had this opportunity. When he heard this fire, this reminder had come to me in the middle of the night, and he's about to commit the mafia from a larger project. But he ended up taking this

00:12:52--> 00:13:17

opportunity and seizing this opportunity. And he ended up making the most of this opportunity. And we don't realize that for this particular opportunity. Look, I don't want you to think that you have to be a very, very simple person of this nature in order for you to be in order for you to make laws that would look if that was the case, so much of our data wouldn't have told us in that

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

journey and

00:13:21--> 00:13:34

make their way to the origin all together without any exceptions. The Muslim, the non Muslim, the Muslim who happens to be practicing in the Muslim world doesn't have to be practicing. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam used to be

00:13:36--> 00:13:40

70 to 100 times a day as a bare minimum every single day.

00:13:42--> 00:13:54

He would say that I wake down but a lot has overtaken some tradition 70 times a day in some traditions 100 times a day. So if the Prophet the best of mankind the sake of stuff, he will block one or two more

00:13:55--> 00:14:19

forgiveness from Eliza which isn't repenting than working you're truly sinful slaves of Allah. You know, sometimes we forget that the symptoms of the art are actually much greater than the physical symptoms. You know, the person who's committing physical sins, he might have a good heart and on the Day of Judgment, Eliza widget ends up accepting it and overlooking isn't the person who is good at doing that.

00:14:20--> 00:14:30

And then he is worse than a professor. And a person who happens to be ostentatious is even worse than a person who happens to be an evildoer. As soon as

00:14:31--> 00:15:00

so we all have to ask ourselves, when we get that opportunity to make a lot of diligence do we end up seizing this opportunity to make dough verticalized to repent a lot as origin, now fully, of course, is committing sins that we would never think to commit ourselves, right. But every single time we see a person within society doing something, sometimes we have to question they had circumstances in their lives that led them to doing such things. And that is the case when I pondered the law.

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

From what

00:15:01--> 00:15:18

I found that there was something missing within his life, okay? There was something uniquely absent within his life. Something that even modern research tells us may end up leading to a meeting a person to come committee sittings of such nature and crimes of such nature. What was that?

00:15:20--> 00:15:33

for y'all, as we said his father was likely from the people, as alluded to earlier, he was likely from the people who ended up traveling or ended up traveling with the Muslim armies to to liberate the

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

events that happened to lead beyond the river, the trends of transient seizure that that that region.

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

But we know that from

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

within the life of.

00:15:55--> 00:16:08

So it's possible that soon after the birth, or perhaps even before the birth, fully, and I did not have the input one another, meaning

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

Maria may have been raised up without a father.

00:16:13--> 00:16:26

And we know through our research in sociology, that fatherless children are at a much greater risk of committing crimes than those who have structured families, right.

00:16:27--> 00:16:56

So this was one of the situations that happened to me. And he was raised up in a situation where he didn't have a structured home, he didn't have a structured family. And perhaps for that reason, we ended up falling so deep in the pits of crime and the fixer sin, and so on and so forth. But when he got the opportunity to make a lot of zolgensma, he sees that opportunity, and he may go, but look, I'll give you a very, very easy remedy, a very easy way to make.

00:16:58--> 00:17:08

A lot tells us over this in the formatting similar to when the last panel what Allah says, In the Quran, but upon the tongue of His Messenger, he says, What and it still feels

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

similar to

00:17:11--> 00:17:22

me still far too. So agenda, and they make them virtualizer. Notice the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam quite regularly used to do a lot of work.

00:17:24--> 00:17:52

So he would make it still popular a lot as a widget first. And then he would make nobody realized, what I was trying to tell us from this verse in this manner that he's teaching us of making is devolved, I still love, what I do is two things. The first thing is that the first step to coming closer to a lot of all of those things that you've committed in the past, you have to seek forgiveness from a lot. So you have to start asking them to forgive you for those priors.

00:17:53--> 00:18:05

And that you've committed to the law, I seek forgiveness from the law as religion. Okay, so we can all do that just about now, let's double to a law.

00:18:07--> 00:18:36

And think about the meaning of a stock today, I'm seeking a lot. So just to cover away and put away when it seems for me to place a barrier between myself and the citizens of Mike, everything that I've done in the past, because you can never have a true new beginning until you fix up your past and the way for you to set the record straight with a lot of some agenda voter pastors to do what to do is still fall. So stay in a STEM field law.

00:18:38--> 00:18:46

What I do, now you can turn to now we can return to Amman. So there's two steps there. Because you've now cleared your password.

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

And now what it's telling you it says until then you

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

Why do you still feel horrible?

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

Then you don't well,

00:19:01--> 00:19:21

then tell a lot more a lot. I've already asked you for forgiveness from my past. Now I'm repenting to you. And now I've turned into you see, this is why the prophets have said them so commonly do this, especially towards the end of this lecture. We haven't behati atmosphere that that the narrator tells us that the profits of the law firm

00:19:23--> 00:19:28

towards the end of his life, he would constantly and regularly c'est la

00:19:30--> 00:19:44

vie you will be the first to raise the bar so you define the perfection of Eliza widget. How perfect are you? Oh a lot. So again, I begin my my garage I begin to fall with your hammer. What can

00:19:46--> 00:19:46

I stop doing?

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

A stuff in law. I think all of us can memorize this. This was a gather the profits of a law abiding citizen used to very very regularly make towards the end of his legislation.

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

Along with a stone filled,

00:20:03--> 00:20:23

the next lesson that we can learn is in the next phase that phalodi is going to go through. Okay. The next phase that provided Maria begins to go through is also a very unique face. Historically, this used to happen in the life of Muslims all around the world, if they tried one journey that you all know of, and that's the journey.

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

The next thing that

00:20:27--> 00:20:59

he did is he moved away from the situation in which he used to be he used to commit the sins, okay? Because look, if you're if you're leading a sinful lifestyle, and believe me, all of us are sometimes we think we are not, but we all are. Even if we're gathering sometimes within Islamic gatherings, we baclofen people, that means we're not a very good life, right? Because that's our that's one of the two things. And there's nothing more than that. There's no third possibility, right? It's either Libra, or happens to be

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

babies. There are a bunch of brothers and sisters, many of us see this happening, especially sometimes even within Islamic environments. And it's not a situation that we think it's Islamic. There's nothing Islamic, right? So we have to change our situation that we're in, we have to change our environment that we happen to be, we have to change our friends that we that we have a job. Okay, so fellated Maria, he did just that, what did he do? What did he do?

00:21:33--> 00:22:13

He packed up his bags, from Odessa from heavy work. And he moved over to another country, he moved back to Kufa, he moved to another land, a land that was completely and far away from his surroundings, anything you see the building sometimes can remind you of the sins that you have committed. And the smells and sometimes can remind you of the sins you've committed your phone and the numbers they're in can sometimes remind you of the sins that you've committed, all of these things can remind you. So what did he do, he ended up packing his bags, and he moved up over to Oregon over to a

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

completely different place.

00:22:17--> 00:22:26

Okay, now, I'm not telling you to pack up your bags and leave Malaysia and go somewhere else, to Indonesia, or to surrender or some other principle. So what I'm telling you, okay?

00:22:28--> 00:22:42

What I'm trying to say is that you have to make some changes within your life. If it's your number, believe me, and it works, I have told people to do it. And I've personally done it in my own life as well. Okay, change your phone number.

00:22:43--> 00:23:18

It has to be come down to that. Okay, if it's that some people talk constantly trying to get in touch with you, and you know, you need to cut them out of your life, there's no other way. You know, if you block if they call you through another phone, and you block their number, then they call you again from a third phone and so on. And so for begin trying to get in touch with either change the avenues of, of being able to communicate with people, this is just an example. Again, you don't have to take this particular thing and stick to it. But I'm saying this is something that you can do, you can change the type of circles that you sit in, you can change the place you live in, perhaps you

00:23:18--> 00:23:28

can make if you're really trying to committed to, to get out of that sinful lifestyle, you need to change your surroundings, you need to change your friends, you need to change the places that you're

00:23:29--> 00:23:33

perhaps you need to change and sometimes you see this, sometimes you need to change your perfume.

00:23:35--> 00:23:56

What does that mean? Because sometimes sense and end up getting attached to something in your in your mind. So every time you smell that scent, you're reminded of something that happened at the same time. That's why they tell you when you're preparing for your exam, put on some perfume, so that everything in your exam is attached to this smell. So when you go for example, that perfume calm.

00:23:57--> 00:24:34

Okay, this is what psycho psychologists will tell you, you'll remember things back. And sometimes we have a cologne in the 70s we smell it and we'll remember something 1520 years ago, I remember smelling the scent at that time, right? So I'm giving you an example of things you can do. Practical changes that you can bring in your life so that those distractions and people that are ringing, those distractions are no longer within your level, change your clothes, do some changes within your life. So you're away from the old life that you happen to be in. Reality changes entire lifestyle. He changed cities. Okay, he went to a city that he was originally from who found that no one knew

00:24:34--> 00:24:39

them. So when you landed in Beaufort, meaning he settled over there,

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

he settled in. He went to

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

the Grand Mosque of Kufa.

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

Okay, which stands still today as well. So he went in central down to the Grand Mosque of Kufa

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

in that mosque, he remained for three days and he was

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Unable to find any food or drinks, okay?

00:25:06--> 00:25:11

in their life for the good, they end up being tested by the laws of logic and a lot told you

00:25:12--> 00:25:52

that do you think you're going to say that I believe, and you're not going to be tested by the law, so the law is going to test. So there's going to be tests, we see many types of people accepting this now. And their parents end up not showing them the type of comfort that they were used to right before there is now we see people who come from families that are not very practicing, and they come closer to a lot. So just the families completely ostracize them because they don't want them to get closer to a lot. We see all of the signs, right. So we'll lay those through the same experience three days for lighting has nothing to eat and drink. The fourth day, filleted is going through this

00:25:52--> 00:25:59

difficult act. He sees a man, this is a very, very interesting scenario. Remember, the lady is coming from this sort of

00:26:02--> 00:26:40

lifestyle in which they're singing and laughing and giggling, and there's gardening and there's all sorts of things. So even when he's getting closer to a lawn, he hasn't completely gotten rid of some of those habits and started making a joke with Eliza, which is, okay, there's no, you can't talk to him. Because he's in a very early phase of his life. He's willing to learn knowledge after this. Okay? But he starts speaking to Eliza, which and what happens is, there's a magic comes and he looks like a crazy man. He looks like he's insane. He's gone mad. He's gone. Okay. And they happen to be lucky to have some,

00:26:41--> 00:26:47

you happen to have a big rock in his head. And in his neck is a neck shot.

00:26:48--> 00:26:56

Okay, so you looks very crazy. And he's got a big draw. And he starts rolling around the rescue. And he finally finds

00:26:58--> 00:27:12

out sitting in the corner. So fellated unconsciously ends up sprouting outward, you know, learning out of that bowl of water for three days, you've been keeping me hungry all along. And now you've said this man to kill me as well.

00:27:14--> 00:27:30

Because he looks like he's going to murder somebody who had a rock in his hand looks crazy in his clothes are not well kept, and so on and so forth. So he makes his job for the llamas. Okay. But again, there is no example in this course. Right? Because we're still learning yet. He hasn't even started his journey of,

00:27:31--> 00:27:42

you know, barely started his journey. But he makes the statement with a loss aversion. And then that man that he was afraid of, because he blurted it out can't hurt him. So he started walking up to.

00:27:44--> 00:27:52

So not only is even more afraid, don't remember, filleted is not a person who's normally afraid, but because three days he has an attitude, he's very weakened. Right?

00:27:53--> 00:28:31

So he walks up to Philly and actually starts to have a very intellectual conversation, which will lead to surprise. He's like this man. He looks like you know, a fool. He looks like it's crazy. But he ends up having a nice conversation with him and he ends up admonishing fully and admonished me that he's willing to remember for the for the next for the coming two years. Okay, so this is one of these awkward occurrences that happened to believe in his early life now. Philemon finally gets a little bit settled in and his journey begins. Okay, his journey begins. What happens and how does his journey begin? Okay. Philemon Arielle

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

is now

00:28:35--> 00:29:12

saying to himself, that the only way I can get closer to a loss of agenda is if I know what Allah wants from me. If I know what the messengers have a lot more and even send them had gotten. So one after another fellated ignore y'all spends his entire time, the entirety of this is seeking and searching for knowledge. He goes and meets some of the most prominent scholars of his time. Okay, he ends up remember, sometimes people that come from the most the worst backgrounds, they end up becoming the best people right.

00:29:13--> 00:29:53

In the middle Sahaba, they had committed one of the greatest crimes that have academics, and that is shipped, then associated partners with a bar. So we did but they accepted Islam and became the best of people, right. And that's what the mama daddy said, commenting on the double bottom and fully consensual Panama, there was people who have committed shins and they've accepted Islam, and they became the best of people, all praises to the one who has the ability to change the hearts of the people. Okay. So a lot of you take your heart Even if it looks like it's obviously an honor today. Even if it looks like it's on steadfastness. today, tomorrow, you don't know what's going to be

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

there for Okay, so that's why I wanted to drive the profits or send them with harm. Commonly make new tape Yeah.

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

70 foot boo,

00:30:03--> 00:30:10

boo, oh one who ends up moving the hearts to our hearts and make them firm upon your guidance.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

So we should also make this

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

make

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

your guidance, right?

00:30:19--> 00:30:26

Remember the one who knows sometimes they become very, very good people. That's why we never distinct people think because of the past the themes that

00:30:28--> 00:31:13

used to say that the role of Islam, the Battle of Islam, spread the logic of Islam. They were never they will never be unfastened, meaning the the signposts of this not being the guidance of Islam, they will never be let go. People will never let them go and kill those people are raised up in this oma, who don't know how Jamia used to be who don't know how the days of the pre Islamic era used to be What's he trying to say? He said people will never appreciate the sound until they know the opposite of the stock. And that's why many people who accept this now, they are the ones who appreciate the fine details of the stuff. Many people who make dojo bardzo agenda, they are the ones

00:31:13--> 00:31:29

who end up appreciating the fine details of Islam because we recognize that in every single guidance, there happens to be white, they recognize the tired of glitter and glamour of this world put together there's not a quick to it slight glimmer of faith within a person's heart.

00:31:30--> 00:31:51

They recognize that firsthand, and they experience it firsthand. So for ladies now started seeking knowledge from the greatest gathering of that time, the greatest people who have met this a habit, okay. It's not knowledge. Knowledge is knowledge from the idea. even say the consignee happens to be from the teachers of riverbank. He sought knowledge from

00:31:52--> 00:32:01

the famous scholar, he sought knowledge from Jefferson. Everybody knows what Jackson assignment does, by the way, Jackson Assad is from the Sunni and

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

the Shia, we tried to, you know, take all that, but this is not true. He's from the shouldn't be enough.

00:32:10--> 00:32:18

Okay, so much. So that Jaffer aside that actually, his maternal side was from the progeny of Oba of the love of God.

00:32:20--> 00:32:26

So, the very people who hate America, they end up loving a man who's from the grandchildren

00:32:27--> 00:32:52

for the love of God. And from that paternal side, of course, he happened to be from the project. So, because of this, we have to be very, very keen on knowing this piece of information that Gavin Watson is actually from the project and that he didn't use to let Rasul gates as well as his history books. There's explicit and duration from him that he didn't have a very high with any of them. So considering that

00:32:54--> 00:33:15

we're not trying to, you know, nor misunderstand and think that he's from the Shia Iran or something like that. But he's actually from the center. And such as the case with many of those who perhaps thing happened to be there in a job from a father and from a colleague, and many, many other famous scholars, who he ended up taking knowledge from. Similarly.

00:33:17--> 00:33:45

We all ended up teaching knowledge to some of the greatest scholars of our time, some of his students happened to be soufiane. To create not all of us have heard the name of CPR. Some of the students and also companions happened to be soufiane at 30. And some of his students and companions also happen to be on the law, even in robotic, the famous scholar, and some of the students and companions also happened to be

00:33:46--> 00:34:26

upon the amount of shuffling himself in many, many others. So this was a person who ended up becoming a very, very important person, despite the fact that he had such an evil beginning evil class and by the way, throughout his life, he will continuously remorse about his past. Sometimes we make dumb luck once and we think Cause everything is done, it's over with, and we forget about the sins that we've committed because love of your life, right? But fellated No, y'all from his life, we learn that throughout his life, he kept on reminding himself used his sins to capitalize on the fear that you have for the love and, and the ability for him to do more for love.

00:34:28--> 00:34:41

And blessings in reality, by the way, my dear brothers and sister sisters, it became so important within Islamic history that his name was mentioned by the evangelical party and as his name was mentioned in

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

his name was mentioned in

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

all of these books, I didn't find his name, either, and I didn't find it The sooner we dealt with another lesson, these four books, his name is mentioned some of them very readily, others at least once. So this shows you that he became an

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Very, very important figure.

00:35:03--> 00:35:19

Within the history of Islam, he became very, very key traditions. But one of the things and by the way, later on from poof, I move on to Makkah as well. Now, as he opens up his gatherings, okay, he opens up his gathering

00:35:20--> 00:35:23

of knowledge, because now he's becoming a full fledged scholar,

00:35:25--> 00:35:49

we find that he has a different vibe within his. within his gallery. You see, every scholar has a different Bible in their gathering. If you've attended the lessons of different people, you realize, some of them happen to be very academic. Okay, it's all information after information after information. And we need that, we need that there's nothing wrong with that, because we need people and there's a natural few

00:35:51--> 00:36:28

people in what they love happen to be very, very numerous different types. So some people like this, some people like that some people like very different things, right. So some people happen to be very, very severely academic in their lessons, other people happen to be very, very spiritual, so much so that perhaps they end up even making grave mistakes within the process of conveying spirituality, meaning that they may or may not have all the academic facts correct. But you're trying to be kind to do more by by bringing them to the laws of logic as best they can. Right? So there's this.

00:36:29--> 00:37:12

And some of them happen to have a mix of both a very, very fine balance of both. So they have academics. And they have, at the same time, the heart related matters, they have repentance that they speak of, they have the all of the matters of the heart, and that they also addressed spirituality within it as well. So there's people like this, and there's people like that. And then there's people somewhere in the middle, and we find it all happened to be one of those who happened to be his lessons were full of tracking academics. But at the same time, his lessons were also full of spirituality as well, full of spiritual guidance as well. So this is the lessons of fully

00:37:12--> 00:37:25

embrace. So much so that one day fellated, Maria, was sitting in a gathering, that he wanted to question his students.

00:37:26--> 00:38:04

And you want to do sort of allow his body, the mind of the students to work. And that's a good teacher, they ask questions, right? Or they make statements that will make people think so he wants to make people things. So he says to them, if I were to be given one dialogue, if I were to be given one job that I can make, that will be accepted, I would make it for nothing other than the person who happens to be the leader, ie the Prime Minister, or the governor or something like that in modern times, right? I will make it for the person who ends up who's the political leader assaulted or something like that. So he says, Why

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

I mean, people started looking at it, and they said, if you have one body, you

00:38:09--> 00:38:15

will be accepted. Have you then the draft that you should be making his own law? Forgive me, so I entered Gemini, right?

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

So he said, No, this is the Bravo.

00:38:20--> 00:38:51

So people sent in why, why is that and explain yourself fully. So for ladies began to explain himself. He said that, if I make it for myself, it will just be related to myself and it will be related to no one else. However, if I end up making this to offer the leader, what happens is the people in the country all of them become reformed. How so? they asked the council, they said, how's that possible? for one person and everybody becomes reformed. He says,

00:38:52--> 00:39:35

If I make that you are the leader becomes the pious leader, because the leader becomes a a good leader, that the leader leaves the people to the right way, then what's going to happen is he will reform the man by raising up the wounded men oppression within the lead. And when that happens, then people will feel more, they will feel more of a reason for them to be investments and do business and so on and so forth. Because they know that their money is not going to be stolen by people. And they will, they will feel more encouraged to bring about economic activity within the country. Right? Because they know they're happy, they happen to be living in safety, security, they happen to

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

be living in comfort and so on. And then he said, that's the follow up, that's how I'm sure that the land will also become reformed. As for the people themselves, that this leader will look at them, and if some of them happen to be ignorant, he will ensure that there are people out there who are able to teach these people that and that these people who are busy with with occupy

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

visions and work and all of these things. They also have an opportunity to learn the deen of Allah azza wa jal, and within that will be the reform of people. And this way, the world, the land, and the dinar, all of that will be reformed. And all of that will be things. And that woman

00:40:18--> 00:40:48

will remember, one of the students and also is impacted. So sometimes you have students that are like your friends, because they're similar age, or you're just have a very, very casual relationship with them. So for ladies who already are has that type of a relationship with a good life as well, right? They're friends and a student teacher relationship as well. So he says to me, he looks at perpetuate and he gets up and he kisses Blaine in the head. And he gives them a title that is remembered by for the coming days, he says to him, oh, my name is

00:40:50--> 00:41:30

teacher of virtue, who can no such things except you, yourself. You see this idea that I told you, of making the offer the leader and that allows for a general reform to occur. It's a very prevalent idea today, right? You might have heard it in the book of yourself. You might have heard it in lectures yourself before you want to be ready within the books, but foliage is the one who is philosophizing, this idea, you see. So sometimes we see things in early Islam that we are so used to today, but we don't realize it at that time, some of these concepts are still being philosophize. So it's kind of new, this philosophy that is bringing the reason why the do this garage should be made

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

right.

00:41:32--> 00:41:49

Now, the lady is very close to a lot is teaching the people, he's meeting people. But as he's meeting people, he starts to notice some things. When he knows, he starts to notice that within the world happened to be people who are scholars.

00:41:51--> 00:42:26

There are scholars of allies. And there also happens to be scholars who are scholars of the dunya as well. Okay. Felipe starts to see this phenomenon, how does he see it? He sees people attempting to change the deen of Allah. He sees people attempting to fall prey to the desires of people and they don't wish to deliver the message untainted and impure. So you see all of these phenomenon, and fillet is not free. Remember, the lady comes from a life in which there is no fear. He was up high. Remember prior to that, right?

00:42:27--> 00:43:06

So he's not afraid. So even after he becomes a practicing Muslim, even after he becomes a scholar, he's he doesn't have that fear, because he's used to dealing with situations that are often tough and that are difficult. So fellated, where y'all now begins to to criticize some of his fellow scholars that nominees fillet doesn't do that. But with qualities, he gives some criticisms. Now, when I'm saying this, you have to realize late is considered one of the greatest scholars of his time. criticizing scholars is not something that everyone takes within their own house, but I've mentioned is that is it something that happened within this lecture, okay. So he says that there

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

happens to be an artist, who is the arm of dunya,

00:43:11--> 00:43:15

a scholar who seeks nothing more than the dunia from his knowledge.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

Be a scholar who's the audience for the doctor,

00:43:20--> 00:43:25

who happens to see nothing more than the hereafter from from from this reading, that is

00:43:26--> 00:43:49

the science of Allium, who happens to be an alum of a dunya is someone who's willing to succumb to pressures. If those pressures happen, to be fair, whether it goes pressures happen to be pressures of fame, whether those pressures happen to the pressures of finance and monetary pressures. What because all of these things come with pressures and there's people willing to give you money.

00:43:50--> 00:44:19

To for you to, for you to compromise with some of your opinions and some of your ideas that you have there are people out there that will do that within this realm and within other realms as well. That's only a Bradbury's, right? People do that. So for ladies saying there's two different types of people, the other happens to be the idea of an author. He wishes to guide the people even if that guidance happens to be against their desires. Remember, someone who everyone is happy with you will never be right.

00:44:20--> 00:44:31

Believe me, someone who everyone is happy, happy when he will never be right. Some people must be unhappy. Why is that? Because the message of the prophets never makes everyone happy.

00:44:33--> 00:44:39

The message there was no profit except that he happened to have enemies a logical dose of this

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

because now he can now be cooling. Ew, I do one Shariati MC would do that just like that he had made for every single project enemies that happened to be saved in from the man and from the gyms. Someone who attempts to make everyone happy. He will never be around. You're going to revert

00:45:01--> 00:45:09

So sometimes, and of course, all attempts to make everyone happy will also never be. The point is to make a lot.

00:45:10--> 00:45:42

The point is to ensure that your your records are key with lives. Beyond scholars, this goes with your personal life as well. Don't try to seek the happiness of people. You just try to ensure that provides happy with you when he is happy, we don't need a law tells us that this is someone I'm happy with it, I love him. And Judy calls out to the people and the people who have the higher committee love the individual. And then the love of this individual descends within people. And everyone begins to go, okay.

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

So if you wish,

00:45:49--> 00:45:53

if you wish for the people to be happy, then you will not get the happiness of the people.

00:45:54--> 00:46:23

If you wish for law's happiness, then a law will ensure that everyone is happy with you see, when he criticized people who are unhappy, but today, everyone mentioned the Kool Aid without exception, with good words, in the books of Hadith, they talk about the scholars of belief, you will never find anything evil mentioned above. Everyone has good things to say about belief, because this was a man who will ensure that you keep

00:46:25--> 00:46:29

now fully as he's growing older.

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

And he's as he's settling down in regard

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

for lady starts to go through another phase in his life.

00:46:38--> 00:46:40

He starts to become critical of himself.

00:46:41--> 00:46:42

Okay.

00:46:43--> 00:46:50

And we all need to also become critical of ourselves. Sometimes we think everyone else is wrong. And we're the only one. That's right. Okay. And sometimes

00:46:52--> 00:47:24

other people from the same things we're doing ourselves. If we look into our own lives, we see we're doing the exact same thing that we're criticizing other people have. So to lay the starts now criticizing themselves, because you'll never become a better person until you start questioning yourself. Because that's how you improve. If you think you're perfect in every which regard, then you will never be able to improve, because you've already decided that you're a perfect person. Right? You have to be critical of yourself as well. So playing started to question his intentions, okay.

00:47:25--> 00:47:32

Ladies started to think to himself, that isn't really possible. Is it really possible that all of this that I'm doing teaching people

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

all of this requires that

00:47:38--> 00:47:52

at some point within their lives, we started to become critical of themselves, even remember who he was in his book. And he talked about this phenomenon, that towards the end of his life, he started to feel like maybe everything we've done prior to this was because of

00:47:53--> 00:48:17

the idea within ostentation teachers, because he was showing off to the people. So he started to question himself, we have to question ourselves as well. But why sometimes we do good deeds do good. And that good will be a weakness against us on the Day of Judgment. Why? Because we were doing it for all the wrong reasons. So be critical of yourself, ask yourself, Am I doing these things that are doing all the good that I'm doing? Am I doing it for

00:48:18--> 00:48:39

where am i doing it for other than a lot of people they needed became so critical of himself, and so unsure of his own media, that he didn't want to do any more juice, he didn't want to do any more gatherings. They just not wanted to worship a lot. And that was the last phase of his life when he went into the face of it, regardless of the worship of the love of the visit.

00:48:42--> 00:49:18

But people they knew they had something to offer. He had knowledge, okay. So people still walk up to him, and they would see him in the house or when they're trying to seek knowledge. Or maybe they would ask him questions until the link I believe authored by this one name. For late start putting a wish there was rumors about the fact that I died. So that people stopped coming to me and asking me questions, right. And sometimes other people have had either either students or families would come up to them. He said, You know, I don't like telling you that ideas are busy with the original robot. He got to that point, because he thought that his intentions are not correct, right? No one may say

00:49:18--> 00:49:28

maybe this is some degree of a phobia or something like that, you know, the person has knowledge and he's completely stopping and withholding from giving that knowledge because he thinks he has the right intention. But remember,

00:49:30--> 00:49:40

things that are left over, we are not perhaps understand, right? And I say this because, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, was not the heart or it could

00:49:42--> 00:49:55

be the profits of a lot. But he said, the most thing that I fear, the greatest fear that I have for you, or my own map is the minor shift. So they asked him, What is this minor shift

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

showing off to the people because it's

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

If you're associating someone else in your worship with allies, because you are not doing it solely and purely for the love of God, you see, so the prophets have a lot more it was said to me, he said this. And the prophets have a lot what he was saying them saying this, that this is the thing that I fear the most, it explains why lady became so afraid of his own intentions that maybe I'm not doing this for larvotto. Right. Now, remember, the Prophet is saying this, but he was able to manage giving the knowledge to the people and so on and so forth. The Sahaba were able to do it. But we have to understand that people are different.

00:50:38--> 00:51:01

This is something very, very important to know. When we look at the lives of people, these are human beings at the end of the day, they are different. They have different emotional states, they have different feelings. People have different decisions they make in their life. And we have to respect the decisions of people. You see what I'm saying? People have different ways to decide you can't have everyone make the same decision to to me, right.

00:51:02--> 00:51:06

Now, the attitude of the transporter

00:51:08--> 00:51:15

now fully, completely settled down and you didn't want to teach anybody to just want to do worship love.

00:51:18--> 00:51:21

Now when it comes to the theory of belief in terms of the worship of

00:51:24--> 00:51:24

autonomy,

00:51:27--> 00:51:39

he tells us to worship first and foremost, he tells us to do all of our obligations. Okay? Look, my brothers and sisters, this is very important. We know this, we don't do.

00:51:41--> 00:51:58

Sometimes we know this, but we don't do it. Give me an example. From a lot of time comes, you know that it's important for you to do what previous shows in the restroom, for instance, but we will do that. We will not do that. And we will instead go
