When you first arrive in Mecca,
for Hajj, when you see all the people from different parts of the world, speaking different languages,
you realize the
variety and the differences amongst the Muslims. At the same time also, you see certain things that make you sad. Sometimes you see Muslims tossing things on the ground, even though the rubbish bin is just next door next to them. You see people pushing others around. And then you start to wonder, Is this how the Muslims are? Is this the state and the condition of the Muslim Ummah?
And you wonder to yourself, when is this going to change? When is one of the Muslims going to unite? Where are the Muslims going to be again strong like they were before you start to wonder. And that was exactly what was going through my mind.
I was with my mother in hajj a couple of years ago.
And they were
digging areas for construction. As you know, right now, there's a lot of construction going on.
we came a little bit late to the masjid and a little bit late. I mean, an hour and a half an hour and a half before the hook but but when it's right before hatch, if you get there if you go there less than two hours, you're not gonna go in the masjid. So we were outside, right outside the masjid close to the construction area. And all of a sudden, we saw people trying to jump over the fences, jump over the barriers. Why? Because they were looking for a shade. Because on the other side, they saw that there was shade. And so there are some people hopping over. And then the police started to come to try to prevent them. And there was total chaos. In fact, I was so afraid. I told my mother I
said let's move. Let's try to get away from this place. For I fear a stampede might occur. There was so much chaos. And then you start to wonder this how the Muslims are again. Why can't we just obey that sign that says danger.
And there are deep pits construction area. It's dangerous that people are still jumping in the police were pushing back and forth. And then something happened at that on that day. There are approximately 3 million people. Everyone coming to Mecca.
Getting ready for Hajj just a few days before Hajj. 3 million people and there was total chaos right in front of me and then in the miracle
the Imam of the monastery today's Rahim Allah he got up and the member and you can hear his voice he said Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
When he said it, there was total silence. All the people that were pushing, they were all of a sudden, they all sat down. And then there was
as if you can hear a pin drop around you, because everybody just sat down. And all that commotion just stopped. And then when prayer began, he said, Hello. 3 million people all at once. They were making ruku and sujood. And standing up in London straight lines, even though there was just total chaos just right before that, what made them change? What happened? It was La, la, la, la, la, la, all of these people together, and then you say, you know what, this Omaha's hoax. Look how organized we are. And you start to realize, you know what, you cannot get 3000 people to do this, even if you had the biggest the best drill instructor in the world without La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad
3 million people cannot in less than 10 seconds, line up in total straight rows. And then you say, you know what, there is hope for this oma. But you know where the change has to happen. The change has to occur within ourselves, we as Muslims, we ourselves have to change within ourselves as the last hanworth Allah says in Allah, Allah you
How are you mabie unfussy him, Allah will not change what's in the people until they change what's in themselves. And so we have just finished
the month of Ramadan, the month of change. And so we should be changed right now. What kind of change I don't want a temporary change. We have to work for a permanent change within ourselves. And let's start. Let's start with what what do we start with? When we speak about change? Let me let me tell you just one thing and I'm going to focus on that during this football, what we should change. Of course the Quran and the Sunnah does not need to be changed.
It is the same for and it is the same Sunnah the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been preserved by the great scholars of Islam. And the miracle of the Quran is still with us. The exact words that were revealed to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited in front of Abu Bakr and Omar and the other companions, they are the exact same words that we hear in prayer all the time. So what has changed?
The Quran and the Sunnah hasn't changed. The thing that has changed and why we are in this state is we have changed in how we respond to the Quran and the Sunnah. We have to change and how we respond to the Quran and the sun. And if we can do that, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will again, will unite the Muslims and unite the omein will bring Baraka again, to our families and to our communities. Allah subhanho wa Taala says yeah, you Hello Xena minister g Boone, Allah He will
come NEMA you come, oh you who believe give you a response to a lioness messenger when they call you to that which gives you life. Is that the icon Lima you come we have to change the way we respond to Allah and His messenger. And then when we look at the examples from the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we see a great difference between how we respond to the Quran and the Sunnah and how they responded to the Quran and the Sunnah. There are many examples of this in the Quran. And in the Sunnah when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed
the ayah the verse of prohibition, when alcohol and intoxicants were prohibited, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a color into the streets of Medina and he said Allah and
Allah in Malcolm rock and hopefully met Allah in Malcolm rocketfuel remains, indeed intoxicants, alcohol, wine and the likes are now prohealth have not been prohibited. And when the companions heard this, and so gnumeric radi Allahu anhu. He said I was in the house of a booth. And some of us were drinking, others were pouring. Others were lifting the cup to their mouths. And when we heard the prohibition immediately, we stopped.
Not only did they stop, and so nomadic radi Allahu anhu he said, they went to the containers and they started pouring all of the wine
into the streets of Medina into the into the streets of Medina were flowing with wine as an American odilo. And who said, and did they stop there? They didn't stop there. They continued, and they went to the containers that they used to use to put wine in, and they smashed the containers. Because once it was has been prohibited, they no longer wanted to ever go back to it again. But there are some people nowadays, we make repentance and we repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Some people they say, you know what, I'm not going to listen to music anymore. And so let me put all the CDs away. Where are you gonna put the CDs away? So then maybe later on, you're gonna change your mind. No, you
gotta change make the conviction to never return to it again. You have to make the intention of the conviction to make a permanent change, not a temporary change. Make a permanent change in your life for the best. And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he prohibited something that companions never wanted to touch it again, never wanted to come close to it ever. Once the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a ring, a gold ring on the hand of the finger of a companion.
And previously in the hook, he had held up gold and silk. And he said in the high vein, how Rahman Allah Dooku de Amati. These two things are prohibited for the male of my alma golden silk. And so he saw a ring on the hand that one of the companions, and he took it, and he tossed it.
And so he said, why would one of you want to put the Ember of fire on his hands? Why would anyone have you put something like that on his hands? And so he went away, and that companion also walked away. This is a gold ring. It's precious metal. It's haram for him to wear, but it's not haram for him to have. He can sell it. He can give it to his wife.
It's precious metal, but he just walked away from it.
And the other companions who saw the situation they said, Why don't you get your ring? Do you know what he said? This is gold brothers, sisters. He said what law he by Allah law Who?
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam By Allah, I will never touch it again. As long as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has already tossed it. In this is how they were. I'm not talking just about the men, even the woman during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a woman and her daughter, they had two thick bracelets of gold on their hands. And he said, Do you give Athena's a cat to Heather? Do you give this a cat have this goal? And she said no. And she and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Would you like a loss of Hanwha to change that into fire on the day of judgment?
And so imagine if this happened during our time, if the Imam saw someone with a large bracelet of gold and said, Do you give this a cut of this goal that you're wearing? Right, a pious woman from amongst us will probably say, oh, man, I really I do I have to give the cut on this goal that I'm wearing. Right? And so yes, you do if the mom says Yes, you do. What do you think a pious woman or man says would say would do? This is a very thick bracelet of God. The pious when's a man cuz monsters will say, oh man, how much do I have to give it? Right and she would give this a cut from that goal. But listen, what what happened during the time of the Prophet so listen to what happened
during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Immediately upon hearing these words from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the woman took off the bracelets, both of them and she said, these two are for a law him His Messenger.
These two are for Allah and His messenger. And this is how the woman during the time of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what worm and how they responded to Allah and His messenger. Not only that, even some of the things that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not prohibit they wanted to be so much like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that they wanted to do and like whatever the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam loved also, whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had a ring made for him, all of the men in Medina they asked for a ring to be made for them also they had a ring made for them also. And then another occasion
when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
came to Medina, he was staying in the house of Abu and sorry, abou bill and sorry, had the privilege to host the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so he brought food over to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then when he came back to collect the dishes
and the utensils, he saw that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not eat from the food. And so he asked the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said a haram and who is it? How long? And so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam said no, he said it's not hard on like in any Accra, who the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam never complained about food. He never complained about food.
I Chateau de La Hoya and he said
marhaba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa never complained about food. If he wanted to eat it, if he liked it, he would eat it. If he did not, he would just leave it alone. He never complained about food. And but this food that
he had just brought for him, it had garlic. It had garlic, garlic is not Haram. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not want to eat it. Why? Because he always wanted his mouth to smell good, because at any moment, anytime gibreel could come down with revelation. And so there was a specific reason why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not eat that.
And so he said, I dislike it. I don't want to eat it. I bought I bought the Allahu anhu at that moment. He said, well by Allah, O Messenger of Allah, I dislike it also Subhan Allah immediately. Do you think he disliked the food that moment? Just a few moments before that?
I mean, if you have a guest, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would you give him anything except for your favorite? Would you give them anything except for something you loved? Something that was the best thing that you had. You would not give someone of that status anything except for the best or your favorite, his favorite after the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I dislike
it, I dislike it.
That's how the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were. And sometimes when we hear there are things that are prohibited for us. We hear that there are things that are prohibited for us. We are sometimes saddened by it. We say you know what if only Allah would allow it but we we wish like the Jews.
Also right, we'd be this. We would be that I wish that was not how long? It'd be really nice I wouldn't it what we don't realize is a loss of hanworth. Allah created us. He knows what's best for us. Whatever has been prohibited is harmful to us and it's not good for us. Ally.
Does he not know whom he has created? and easy also to all aware? Does he not know what's best for us? Whenever Allah and His Messenger prohibit It is not good for us and we should abstain from it. We should never go close to it. Don't ever regret and think oh, I wished I was hurt. No one knows what's best for us. And Alicia love whatever line is messenger love for us, and vice versa also.
And this is a condition of a man. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala swears by himself. In the Quran, Allah swears by the sun in the moon in the stars in the day in the night, and he can swear by anything he saw like he saw wills for his alarm.
His words was Shamsi will do haha will lay in his words by many things. But when he swears by something is to signify the importance of that thing and at the same time to emphasize the statement that's coming up. In Surah Nisa, Allah swears by himself
when it comes to a man
and surrendering to the will of Allah and His Messenger, he swears by himself not the sun in the moon in the stars. And so how important do you think the next phrase is to us? Allah says
know, how are you Hi chemo cafe Masha
Allah swears by himself and he says, fella pick and name by your Lord Mohammed. law you mean they shall not have faith. They shall not believe you Hakeem oka FEMA shadow Ravana home until they make you a judge in other disputes amongst themselves similar to Vm fusi him hi Roger. And they find no resistance in themselves whatsoever. When you suddenly move
and they surrender to it with the fullest of conviction.
You should not have faith by Allah, Allah Subhana says, by your lord, oh Mohammed, Allah swears by himself.
So when we make a change,
we have to change with the fullest of conviction. And we have to
in order for us to strengthen our Eman to strengthen our communities, to strengthen our families to strengthen our oma we have to start with ourselves and we have to change in the way we respond to Allah and His messenger. Most of us when we went when we say inshallah I will I will be better after I make Hajj inshallah after I graduate inshallah after I inshallah after after I finished school, inshallah, after I get married, inshallah, after I get, I'm 40 years old and so forth. inshallah, inshallah. It's never in short right now.
And that's the difference. We're always procrastinating. We're always saying, inshallah, tomorrow, when is tomorrow coming in, you have tomorrow coming for you.
Are you promised to see the sunrise again tomorrow?
There are people who are younger than us who have passed away, and people who are more healthy than us who have passed away who are not sick. What makes you think you're not the next person? And who has promised you that to say that inshallah after I'm 40 after I get married, after I finished school, and so the time is right now. The only time you have is right now, the only time you have promise for you is the present. And so make that intention right now in that conviction to change for the best. Apolo county hada.

Abdullah raha radi Allahu anhu was coming to the masjid.
He was walking to the masjid. And there were some people in the back of the mustard they were standing up, just like right now.
And so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Everybody sit down. Everybody sit down,
was still outside the masjid. But he heard a familiar voice and it was the voice of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordering people to sit down. And so he sat down he did not take another step
outside the masjid in this time.
You know why? Because he was afraid of going against the order of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam his first instinct was that so familiar voice that is the voice of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the member and he's telling me to sit down so he sits down outside the masjid
without taking another step.
This is how the companions were. When it came to the orders of Allah and His messenger. It was immediate, and that is why when they raised their hands and last set the angels to help them when they
Ask for rain when they dropped their hands rain came down right away. Why? Because the quicker you are in responding to Allah, the quicker Allah is in responding to you. Allah subhanho wa Taala says
in the Quran, and there are many a Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
the honor of Illa Allah He said,
know Allah in times of ease, and along with know you in times of hardship, and then you start to wonder you're like, why is the law not responding? Because when the law orders you to do something, you don't respond to him.
When Allah says is prohibited, you say inshallah alone tomorrow, inshallah after I finish my mortgage, and so, after I graduate, and after I make hydes, inshallah, after I get married, inshallah, after I'm 40 inshallah, after I retire,
that's how we are.
That's how we are.
But that has to change.
And there has to change now,
at this moment, at this time, let not a single person amongst us in this Masjid right now, leave this Masjid except that he has made the conviction in his heart, young law, whatever I hear from you, whatever I learn, I am going to follow and be obedient.
Because you know what's best for me. But there are many amongst us, we want to do something. And so we start asking this shift in that, shall we say, is this home? Or is it
I don't like it. Let me go ask another ship. And then you wait for another chef to come and you ask the same question. You ask 10 people you're bound to find somebody who's insane. But you know, it's wrong. You yourself deep down inside, you know, you shouldn't be doing it. But you're going to a shopping. But this is not shopping.
You're not going to the mall here. And we're like this color like that color. This is your dean.
This is your
goodness in this life, your success in this life in the air after dependent upon that. And then you wonder. Now hopefully Allah subhanho wa Taala will allow us to cross the Seahawks, just like a flash.
Just like lightning. But you know why people go slow?
It's not because they are good. They have good acrobatic skills. It's not because they weren't for the surface so they can cross the slot. No, it's because of their deeds.
It's because they're clicking responding to Allah and His Messenger, just like a flash. When they hear a messenger tell them to do something. They do it right away. When they hear Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, they come to the masjid right away. Now watch football on TV and wait, let me see. Wait till the game is over. No.
This is how we are nowadays. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the de la Kuma Omen the nation's will come
and we'll fight
and compete with each other to plunder you committed to die Akela tala passatti just like a group of hungry people fighting for a platter of food. And so the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were wondering how could the non Muslims do this to Muslims?
rasulillah Is it because we are so few in number or messenger of a law?
Is it because we're so few in number? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said no on that day
you will be abundance you'll be many
on a day you'll be large in number one.
But you'll be like the phone just like the foam on the side of the river on the side of the water. The blowing it's constant thing. 1 billion strong or 1 billion weak I should say.
We have a lot of males Mashallah. But we're the men.
so many people.
billion over a billion Muslims
but everybody has like a phone
It's not numbers.
It's not numbers.
The people before shook the world
and they were few, but they were men.
Because they responded to Allah and His messenger. The Quran hasn't changed. We have changed. So let's change the way we respond to Allah and His messenger.
Let's really repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you Hello, Dina M and G Bula. He will live also, oh you who believe give your response to Allah and His Messenger either
when they call you to
either the accompaniment up
to that which gives you life that which strengthens you. So if you didn't get anything in this clip
and just take this verse, you want to strengthen yourself. You want to change change the way we respond to Allah and His messenger.
