00:00:31--> 00:01:18

We begin by praising Allah subhana wa Tada. We praise Him, we seek his hope, and we ask for his forgiveness. We should all praise and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for allowing us all to be gathered here together. We just performed the solar to Maverick together in July. This is a great blessing a great neon as it is so Pamela, you know, and also this is a great blessing that we are here, restarted the Tuesday night talks and handling that after this pandemic We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to keep us all safe. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to reward each and every one of us. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to gather us like we are gathered here. But in general Phil dos I

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

mean,

00:01:20--> 00:01:27

as you already know, the topic for today is are we connected or disconnected?

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

Now this is a topic

00:01:31--> 00:02:26

that is a balance our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are we connected to Allah? Or are we disconnected to Allah? subhana wa Taala. And that is a question that we can ask ourselves and try to answer ourselves. And to begin this talk, I wanted to start with a very beautiful story. Whenever I read his story, or whenever I read the story, I still get goosebumps of heinola because of how beautiful His story is. It's a story about Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah and he narrates the story. Now at the time of Imam ashmit. He was a very, very famous scholar, this is at the peak of his life. And even today in suparna law, we learn so many lessons from in asthma in November, we take a lot of

00:02:27--> 00:02:31

matches and fit laws from Imam Ahmed Mohammed Rahim Allah.

00:02:33--> 00:03:08

And at the peak of his life, almost every Muslim household knew him as medical humble. But then you have his name, then you have his work. But I didn't know how he looked like. I mean, they, they never had TV. They never had computers, no Facebook, or anything like that. back then. No one knew how everyone looked like, except for the people around his locality. They knew of course, what email look like they used to see him on a daily basis. But there was a time where email admins or HIPAA will learn he traveled to be allowed to show

00:03:09--> 00:03:34

and he traveled there to gain knowledge. You know, so Pamela, today we have knowledge in our fingertips on our palm of our hands. Back then people used to travel so far distance for even one heavy pan alone. So he traveled to Belarusian alone, a very humble man he was he never had an entourage with him. He traveled alone. And he came across an STD.

00:03:35--> 00:03:49

And it was late at night, early morning. And he decided to rest at that mystery. So he went inside, and he found an area of MSG. And he laid down with him, put his belongings down and he laid down.

00:03:50--> 00:04:08

Now the head is of the nest at the guard of domestic he noticed there was someone inside. And he went to him. He didn't know he was speaking to him. And he said to him, that the message is close. You need to leave in a very rude way in a very harsh way.

00:04:10--> 00:04:18

He replied. He said, Where am I gonna go? I don't have a place to go. I'm a traveler. And I wanted to just have a rest over here.

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

But then the guard said no, the message is close. You need to leave.

00:04:25--> 00:04:34

So they mama picked up his luggage wherever he had and he went outside. And then he found it in a corridor of domestic he decided to lay down and sleep over them.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

The guard came again and he said hey, did I tell you that domestic is closed? You need to leave my machine but he replied again, in a message saying hey, do you know you're speaking to me, Mama? No. He said, Where am I going to go? I'm a traveler and I just need to stay. I just need to rescue him. He got so angry. The God of the mystery. He picked up the leg of Mr. Othman Andrew

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

right into the middle of the street and 3 million. Can you imagine this panel, he's got no idea who is dealing with.

00:05:07--> 00:05:25

And then on the other side of the road, there was a bakery. And a baker was already awake. For those of you who know a bit about bakery, he was already awake. And he was kneading the dough and he was getting the dough ready for the next day morning rush maybe. And he noticed a commotion outside.

00:05:26--> 00:05:34

So he came outside and he saw a man not knowing who he is. He went up to this elderly man and he said, Do you need a place to stay?

00:05:35--> 00:06:24

So Mr. Ashman? He replied. Yes, I do. So he said, I'm already awake by bakeries right there. Why don't you come to the bakery with me and you can stay there. So he was very relieved. Alhamdulillah so he went, but so panela something was keeping him awake. Something was keeping him away. Now as he was sitting there trying to rest he noticed the baker the entire time, the baker is kneading the dough, putting the W the oven making the dough, the entire time, his tongue was moisten with the remembrance of alone, the entire time. So pan Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah, Al hamdu, lillah Allahu Akbar La ilaha illAllah, a stone filled stone filled up the entire time, for a long period of

00:06:24--> 00:06:36

time. And Eva Mohamad is noticing this. And then he asked him a question. He said, How long have you been in this situation? Meaning, how long have you been doing this Vicar of Allah?

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

He replied, I've been doing this for as long as I can remember.

00:06:42--> 00:06:52

And then I asked him a very interesting question. He said, What have you gained from this? What benefit have you gained from doing the vicar of Allah?

00:06:53--> 00:07:12

The baker, he said that well, all I can say is that from the vicar that I have been doing, I believe that every single dollar that I have made, of course, concerning this world, and about him, for this world, every dollar that I have made has been answered by Allah.

00:07:13--> 00:07:30

And then the nama he was shocked, he said, every single dollar, he said every single dollar, except for one, except for one, one, why is not been answered? So Mr. Smith, he asked him, What is that one? He said, an hour

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

to get a chance to see him

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

and he had no idea he was speaking to

00:07:38--> 00:07:42

Mr. Othman embrace this man and hug him and he said supernova.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

hawala, or the jack Kirby Ashman he drew Ruby originally he.

00:07:50--> 00:08:33

He said to Pamela Glory be to Allah. This is a worm, grabbing the leg of a thread, driving him towards your bakery for your daughter to be answered. This is the power of connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one really knows about ladies bakeries, you know, except for the story that we know. But Allah chooses from among the servants, those who are close to Allah knows who they are. And because of that incident, we know about this great man who used to remember a love consistently and look at the reward of Allah. If you are connected to Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will be connected to you.

00:08:35--> 00:08:46

Such a beautiful story. The question is, how much are we connected to Allah? Think about this for a moment. How much are we connected to Allah subhana wa tada

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

in terms of your Vicar how much they can do we do. You're the spear. Yo.

00:08:53--> 00:09:06

Yo, Salam. How powerful is your solo? How much are you reciting on a daily basis? How much around Have you memorized? Where is your connection with Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:09:07--> 00:09:21

Today, if you ask you, if I ask anyone this question, especially amongst the youth, what are you connected to? What is an answer that we get? We are connected to our devices? Wi Fi.

00:09:23--> 00:09:56

Facebook, actually Facebook's getting old now, isn't it? It's Instagram now. Snapchat. What's the new one? Tick tock, a very new one tick tock. This is what we are connected to today. And when we are connected to this we say hey, we are connected to the world. That is the new trend. Because of all of these distractions around us. We have severed the ties with Allah subhanahu wa Tada. We have cut that connection with Allah and we are connecting to the world.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

So parallel we are connected to the world but yet

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

We are disconnected from the one who created the world. And that is very shocking subpanel.

00:10:08--> 00:10:54

And all of these things that we are connected to is so dangerous on us, our family, our health, and also, it's not safe for many of these applications. Now, of course, you know, being connected through all of these technology, there are good, there are benefits out of it too. Of course, there are benefits. You know, we, we have cameras on our phones, we use these platforms to give Dawa, yes, they are good for us. And especially during this lockdown the pandemic that we had, you know, the shacks, the scholars, they were using these platforms to give Dawa. So they can be used for good, definitely. But most of the time, they are used for evil, they are used for wasting our time. And

00:10:54--> 00:11:29

let's face face it majority, almost all, all of our youth who are using this, you know, they are using it for the wrong purposes. And that is something that we really need to understand. I'll give you a couple of examples of how dangerous some of these things are. An example of Netflix, almost every household has something like this Netflix stand to be whatever it's called. They all most of us have this. And so panela almost every movie, almost every TV show that you find on Netflix,

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

an example is that they have a homosexual character.

00:11:36--> 00:12:19

And that is now becoming a normal part of the society, why people are accepting it. So they are brainwashing our minds in order to think Yep, this is okay. This actually is okay. That is what is happening. Now, I'm not here to debate about the issue of homosexuality. That's not the topic. But the point that I'm trying to make is that we know Islam, Christianity, Judaism, every major religion, we know the stance that they have about homosexuality, we know this. But what is happening is that is becoming so normal within our society. Everywhere you look, you'll find people like that you turn on the television, you'll find every show where there is a character like that. It's so

00:12:19--> 00:12:56

much so that children these days are asking us and hamdulillah I'm a teacher at a school. And students, they asked me this question, they say, What is wrong with homosexual character? What is wrong with someone who has those tendencies? You know, and they born with it, I mean, it's fine. This is what they are asking now, because they are brainwashed to believe it's fine. They are brainwashed to believe that people are born with it. So Pamela, because of what they see, these are the dangers of what is available that our kids, not just the kids even are also looking into. So much so

00:12:57--> 00:13:06

that at a certain Muslim school here in Australia, and I'm not going to name the school, but here in Australia at a certain Muslim school.

00:13:07--> 00:13:13

Two students from the same gender has been caught together in the bathroom making out.

00:13:14--> 00:13:44

So it's it's infiltrating, it's coming into the Muslims. Now, I know that you may think yet these things are not going to happen in our generation will think again, because it's coming up. It's creeping in slowly, slowly. There was a case I remember at a certain school, that's a boy and a girl will coat together, making out somewhere in the corner of the building a boy and a girl. Fine. Okay. And one of the teachers he said that if I was the father of that, boy, you know what, I'll be relieved that he found the girl.

00:13:45--> 00:13:55

I'll be relieved that he found the girl to that extent, honey, this is where we are going. So pantalon that is what our children are connected to. That is what we are also connected to.

00:13:57--> 00:14:21

I'll give you another example. tic Tock the dangers of tic Tock I believe are all my research about these social media platforms, I believe Tick Tock is one of the most dangerous Why? Because it is taking our children is taking the Muslims out of their shell to portray themselves online in a manner that they would never do in front of other people.

00:14:23--> 00:14:50

You probably see many of these doing certain moves and dances and so on out of the blue because of what they see all the time on tik tok. And nowadays they are getting together they are doing all of these moves and challenges. There is actual challenges that make our Muslim youth do those challenges, undress themselves in front of the camera, do those moves, you know, immodest moves in front of the camera for the world to see. So

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

there was a story a chef mentioned

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

about a 16 year old girl, a 16 year old girl had so

00:15:00--> 00:15:21

many followers, on Tick tock, she had all of these videos of herself in morus videos of herself, Muslim girls 16 year old. And so Panama, what happened was that she had a certain disease, and she passed away at the age of 16. Her parents did not want her to be remembered by her videos.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

So what they did was they contacted Tick tock, in order to remove those videos. But guess what, once it's out there, it doesn't belong to us, it belongs to them. That's it, they could not delete those videos.

00:15:36--> 00:15:59

And that is the scary part of this. Imagine. Now, if we are not monitoring what our children our youth are doing, then we are in trouble. Imagine what they're putting out there. Imagine the predators online scenes. So we need to be very, very careful about what we are connected to. That is why this is something very, very important to understand.

00:16:01--> 00:16:17

And it's not just the kids. Let's look at the adults, for example, our children, I mean, they resemble their parents, they try to resemble their parents, and they sometimes see what their parents do. So they try to do the same.

00:16:18--> 00:16:59

And I'll give you a few incident try to think of this, this probably happens. inshallah it doesn't in your household. But now imagine at a dinner table, at a dinner table, your family, you know, husband and wife and children. These days in the Muslim family. While they're having dinner, they put the children on a certain table, and they place the iPad in front of them. And they turn on one of the shows for them to watch. They sit quietly and eat without disturbing the parents. And then you have the hospital one side is eating with his device open. And the wife on the other side, she's eating with her device open. What's happening to the family unit, what's happening to the classic

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

days where people used to have dinner together and converse with one another.

00:17:04--> 00:17:50

The professor along while he was telling me is from the sooner that he encouraged people to eat in groups to eat together. Why? because food brings people together. It brings more health burden love together, that is gone today. And that is why there is no connection within the family. If there's no connection within the family, then how can we have connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala husband and wife issues because of these devices and connections of social media that we have, there are so many husband and wife issues. I have myself personally dealt with a couple of them. One case was the husband was complaining that the wife has so many men as friends on Facebook, and she speaks

00:17:50--> 00:18:24

to them. And he was complaining that I don't want her to do that. And she's not listening. On the other hand, she complains, hey, why is it okay for him? to have all of these ladies on Facebook as his friends? Why can I have guys at my workplace, and they are complaining so much so that it actually ended up as a divorce. To that extent, if there's no connection between husband and wife, you really think is going to be connected to the loss of Hannah who was on that is what's happening is destroying the family is destroying husband and wife is destroying siblings. It's destroying

00:18:26--> 00:18:32

your connection with Allah. And that is why this is so scary. There were certain

00:18:33--> 00:18:40

stats that we can find that there was a research done in May 2018.

00:18:41--> 00:19:11

that on average, and Australian between the age of 14 to 24. of Mad Men, sorry, between the ages of 14 to 24. Go on social media one hour every day. It's a 2018. Okay, so going back to you now it's probably a little bit more. And they say the same research, they say that the same ages 14 to 24. Amongst average Australian women, they use social media two hours a day.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

That is the study that was done.

00:19:15--> 00:20:00

And then in June 2019, there was a study done done that every single day, an average Australian checks his or her phone at four times or 85 times. You know, when we're bored. What's the first thing that comes into our mind? Take the device up and go through what we message goes through Facebook, go down, scroll down, look at different posts. That's what's happening these days. Right. And that's, that's the new norm that we automatically take our phones out and we scroll down and we look at whatever we want to look at. That has become the new norm 85 times a day. And in the same study, it said that every day an average Australian

00:20:00--> 00:20:13

Spend time in front of the screen 6.8 hours every day. Now, of course, some of that could be for work purposes. Some of that could be for educational purposes. Yes. But a lot of that is trash.

00:20:14--> 00:20:25

We spend time and we connected to the trash and we leave the treasure. And that's the unfortunate reality of today. 85 times people are taking difference.

00:20:27--> 00:21:03

How much time do we spend connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now let's look at the difference. We just saw the stats of how much time we spend on connecting with other things. Now look, let's look at how much time we spend with Allah subhanho wa Taala if you combine all of your prayers, your follow prayers, I'm talking about the two for photo for photo hartville for us and three for mothering for for Asia. If you combine the father plate prayers, I don't think it's longer than half an hour. Combined half an hour combine your fault praise. That is how much we are connecting with Allah when it comes to salon.

00:21:04--> 00:21:32

Ask yourself, how much time are you spending in the re citation and understanding of the Quran on a daily basis? Let's look at that for a moment. How much time are we spending on that? How much time are we spending on that the spirit of Allah subhanho wa Taala? are we spending enough time on that? A lot of the answer is no. That are we making enough go out on a daily basis? The answer is no.

00:21:34--> 00:22:04

And we need to look at Allah subhanho wa Taala encouraging us to be connected to him because of his love for us. And I'll give you one Hadith. This has been narrated by Abu Dhabi law one reporter in Sahih Muslim, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that's a loss of what Allah say. So this is how you could see that Allah subhana wa tada says, that what my servant does a good deed,

00:22:05--> 00:22:30

I will multiply that good deed by 10 minimum. And he said, and I will multiply it even more to whomsoever I wish, that is a law. And then he continues and says, if my servant does a bad deed, I will count it as one sin, not 10 one sin, and I may forgive him,

00:22:31--> 00:23:24

if I wish, that is above. And then he says, if my servant comes towards me, a handstand, I will go towards him an arm's length, that is alone. And he says that if my servant comes to me an arm's length, I will go to him a fathoms length, that is alone. And then he says, that is my servant comes to me with a mountain of sins. Imagine a mountain of sins. I whenever the Prophet uses the word mountain, he mostly refers to the mountain of often, for those of you who've seen mountain a wolf or these huge, it's my sermon comes to me with a mountain of sins, but he does not or he did not commit should, then I will forgive him. That is a lot. The one whom we are so disconnected from the one who

00:23:24--> 00:23:32

loves us so much, the one who is giving us these opportunities to be connected to him, but yet we are so far away.

00:23:33--> 00:23:40

The one who is our Creator, our makeup, the one who is alpha Dude, I will do the most loving one.

00:23:42--> 00:24:20

And yet we are so far away from him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once with our mother, they were walking. And then they saw this woman. She was frantically running around. She loves to child. She was frantically running around for those of you who know the experience of losing a child for a moment. It's crazy. I've done it once. It's It's It's ridiculous. The things that go through your mind. So pantalon this woman was running around frantically looking for a child. And then she found a child after a little while. She got so happy, she picked up the child and she embraced him. And then later on she fed upon this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:24:20--> 00:24:29

said to Rama Yama, do you think that that woman could ever throw her child into a pit of fire?

00:24:30--> 00:24:36

And I want to be alone when he said he had a pseudo law? No. A mother can never throw the towel into you know fire.

00:24:37--> 00:24:45

The professor alone while insulin he said Allah subhana wa Taala loves us more than that mother to a child.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

That's how much he loves us. That's how much Allah cares for us. But yet we are drifting away from him. And that is the sad reality. inshallah, I want to give you, myself and all of you six tips

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

of how we can go back and be connected with the last panel without and these six tips we know but sometimes it's good to have these reminders. The first tip I

00:25:11--> 00:25:20

have for sure in your salon one of the best ways to connect to a law is through prayer is through Salah.

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

There's probably nothing goes better than that.

00:25:25--> 00:25:44

But the condition is we are sure why? Because how do we pray? We just perform selective memory. If you were to give yourself a mark out of 100 in terms of your for sure what Mark would you give yourself onto that yourself? What Mark would you give yourself? I'll be very surprised if we score out of more than 50

00:25:45--> 00:26:11

I'd be very surprised because in Sala What do we do? We plan our day in our Salah. What do we do we think of how much money we make today in our salon What do we do? We think oh, we're gonna go home and eat it. So what do we do? We think of what we're gonna watch tonight before we sleep. Those are the things that we thinking during our prayer. And that's how the prayers so panel London, the Allah subhanho wa Taala he says are the Uppsala has moved

00:26:12--> 00:26:38

alladhina houfy Salatu him harshly own. Allah subhana wa tada describes the successful believer. He says, indeed, successful are the believers. Who are they the first person Allah says the first type of people that when they perform this Allah, they perform it with who sure with devotion with concentration, that's the meaning of for sure.

00:26:39--> 00:27:03

And that is something that we need to have. Think about your Salah for a moment. Isn't it true that our Salah is so robotic and mechanical these days? It's become so robotic and mechanical. Think about it. When you're reciting Salatu effects you have vital Nabu big mala Pauline I mean automatically without thinking you will recite one of the shortest soldiers it just comes automatically in our in

00:27:04--> 00:27:20

our first record on second Raka Hola Hola. It comes automatically without thinking. It could be another soda that you're doing but it will be Matic and I'm not saying the term beside the suit is of course as soon as a great amazing but we are doing it because our Salah has become so robotic.

00:27:21--> 00:27:26

A way to gain this crucial is change your suitors around.

00:27:27--> 00:27:37

Change your suitors around you probably memorize a lot of suitors use them in your Salah, recite them in your Salah, because then you will concentrate more in your Salah

00:27:40--> 00:27:54

if you know different karats in the citation use them. I remember so panola side story. Funny story, there was a certain mystery and there was a chef who came to visit that area from overseas.

00:27:55--> 00:27:58

And the chef was really

00:27:59--> 00:28:09

respected scholar. The locals of the minister told him to leave the salon. So he led the salon but he recited in para Hamza

00:28:11--> 00:28:34

he reciting surah. Hamza, how is the citation? I'll give you some example. He said, instead of medically omitted, he said many kiyomi beam. So I was young at the time like okay, maybe maybe he made a little error. Then he said, If you didn't know 00 about living in a non tala home, like it doesn't have to be la Humala balling

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

house. Like I was just thinking what's going on? And I could see from the side of my people are looking at each other What's happening? Why is he reciting like this? After saw there was a huge commotion people were asking him, Hey, you lit the prayer wrong, let me do research. He was wrong. And then he stood up, he was thinking what's going on? He had no idea that the locals had did not know Kira Hamza, but guess what, that made people concentrated that made people finally concentrating their brain. That wasn't the point of why he read lead that they just thought people knew and so you had to after solid tell them that Sorry, I recited Hamza, it's it's another thing is

00:29:12--> 00:29:50

the process of settling was taught this as well. But the point that I'm making is change a few things around in your Salah. What I mean by that is change your students. If you're not if you cannot learn them, say say them learn different ions in Surah of the Quran and then read them in your brain. You will concentrate even more. Make do I used to do the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, the closest the servant is to Allah is in frustration. Make a change in your attitude that will bring the horseshoe in your prayer. So that's the first advice. Second advice do

00:29:52--> 00:29:52

you

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

think about the last time and I'm not saying do it solo separately than that? Of course we did do it solo

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

Think about this. When was the last time you raised your hands up to a love? And you cried in front of a love begging him for forgiveness begging him for gentlemen. When was the last time we did that? Let's think about that for a moment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, in Nila Estelle feola philleo me at samagra. He said that every single day I asked forgiveness from Allah 100 times was he sinful? Did he commit sins knowed his past, present and future sins were forgiven. Now imagine the Prophet doing that what about us, we cannot count the sins. That is how much we commit on a daily basis. Our motto the law of mourning, he says this all the time has evil and the

00:30:45--> 00:31:18

full circle of Allah and to account yourself before you are held accountable. Make blind to a loss is too far to Allah subhana wa Tada. That is something we need to do on a consistent basis, or almost all the above one a macho man that he was that he was known for. But when it came to him be connected to Allah, he was so soft, his beard used to become wet with the tears when he would make dua to Allah subhanaw taala What about us When was the last time lbs wins? Probably will do without tears when

00:31:19--> 00:31:29

when it is when. So that is a question that we need to ask ourselves. Allah subhanahu wa tada he says what either like either the only for me or him.

00:31:30--> 00:31:52

He said, when my servant asks about me, oh Mohammed tell them that I am me to them. I am close to them. Oh gee Buddha was a die either done I will answer the drop. If they asked for me. I will answer that is also kind of a workout. So we need to consistently asked blog. Number three is the spirit.

00:31:53--> 00:32:38

When was the last time we sat down and we did the spear? So Panama and hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar La ilaha illa Allah. When was the last time we did the spear to Allah subhana wa Taala. Now the spirit may seem very small, and it may seem insignificant because of how small it is. But in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala the vigor of a line that the spear weighs heavy on the scale, weighs very heavy on the scale. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he gives us this example in a hoodie. He said Kenny my time coffee for tomorrow. Listen, Sabina Changi visa and Happy birthday, man. So can Allah He will be handy he Subhana Allah.

00:32:39--> 00:32:57

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said there are two phrases that are so light on the tongue, but they are heavy on the scale. And that is loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala. What are they? So panelo he will be hung biggie. So Panama loving, how long did it take me? Three or four seconds? That's it.

00:32:58--> 00:33:31

Some of us will think Yeah, but is that going to get us a lot? Yes, it will. And the Prophet gives us an example. He said on the Day of Judgment, a man will be brought forward and not just a man. Many people will be like this. A man will be brought forward in front of a law being judged. And Allah will ask the angels to bring the book of bad deeds. The man will see mountains of bad deeds coming towards his way. And Allah subhana wa tada will question him about that. And every time he is answering, he's thinking that's it. I'm doomed. I'm doomed. I am doomed.

00:33:32--> 00:33:45

And then Allah will say to the angel bring his book of good deeds. The man will see a very small paper or scroll that says La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, that's it.

00:33:46--> 00:34:05

And he's going to see that he's going to think what is that going to do, as compared to the mountain of sin. And Allah will ask the angel to place that on the other side of the scale, all of a sudden, that La Ilaha Illa, Allah will outweigh the mountain of sins, and he will be forgiven and he will be admitted into paradise.

00:34:06--> 00:34:29

That is the power of the Spirit. That is the power of Satan, La ilaha illAllah. Every time you say some kind of law, you are planting yourself a tree in paradise. Your estate in Paradise is getting bigger and bigger. your garden is becoming huge in paradise. So never think of the sphere as something insignificant. It is worth a lot.

00:34:32--> 00:34:50

The professor a lot while he was sending them. He emphasized this a lot and a lot of people take advantage of this. They say hey, alright, if La Ilaha Illa. Allah gives me so much you know what I'll do? I will say that in a halal law before I die, I will do all the things that I want to do. And just before I die, I will say that

00:34:51--> 00:34:58

a lot of people have these thoughts. But so Pamela, you will only remember to say that either in the log. If you live

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

The scholars have said this, just imagine yourself and I've said this many times before. Imagine yourself you're walking in the street and all of a sudden a thorn picks your leg or something drops on your feet. What are the first words that come out of your mouth? Oh, sugar, hopefully, but swear words come out of my mouth.

00:35:19--> 00:35:28

Do we ever think of a loving? Do we ever say a sofa? Or over below or anything like that? No. Imagine the pain and agony of death. Will you remember to say that either.

00:35:29--> 00:35:32

But if you live La ilaha illAllah, then you will say that in a

00:35:33--> 00:36:07

chef mentioned in the story that a man was dying. And there were songs playing in the house. And the songs was by a woman by the name of Hong Kong film from Egypt. And he was listening to that. And then all of a sudden, the chef, a chef came to visit him. And he was really stunned, dying man and his music playing. And then he asked the family said, what's wrong with you Your father's dying, or add on at least. So they felt ashamed in the Koran. As soon as they put Koran on a dying man, he got angry, and he said, put back on coal soon because she sued my heart.

00:36:09--> 00:36:52

So if you live that way, you might die that way. So let's think about the way we are living and it's coming back to a loss of Hi, number one. Number four is Bill farm. We touched upon it a little bit earlier. But when was the last time we made this so far, to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as I mentioned, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, that I make is still far 100 times a day, another Heidi more than 70 times a day. So while we are driving, while we are alone, while we are bored, let's think of doing this the farm and the space in general. Because usually what we hear on the radio, we put on some music in the car. Let's change that. And when we're bored, let's

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

remember lots of high number what are the during that time? Number five, the re citation of the Corvette?

00:37:01--> 00:37:51

Think about us. Do we recite the poem on a daily basis? Leave Sala aside other than Salah? Do we open up the Quran and read on a daily basis? Do we try to understand the meaning of the Quran? Let's think about that for a moment. Because the Quran is the Kalam of Allah, the Quran are the words of Allah if you want to be connected to a love and read his words, because that is the guide to your life. And so Pamela, with the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us so much reward for it. Every letter that you recite is 10 has an X 10 has an x. And he says in a heartbeat. I'm not saying Alif Lam mean is one letter and is a house lamb is a house mean is a house, which means you get 30

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

house and I just

00:37:53--> 00:38:00

try to count for one level ahead, the entire sort of the amount of letters that that is they try to count

00:38:01--> 00:38:33

to three times he recited because that is equivalent to you reciting the whole code and the reward of it. Thinking about the reward there, you can't calculate it, the calculator will not be able to do the math. So Pamela, that is the amount of reward Allah is giving us if we remember him through his words, and we'll learn you brothers beautiful thing that I witnessed a beautiful thing that I witnessed a man that worked with me a chef in my school chef, but Shere Khan, I'm gonna name him as well. He is so close to Allah when it comes to the poor. And

00:38:35--> 00:38:53

so upon Allah, I remember he broke his leg at school, you know, he was playing soccer, and all of a sudden go tackle. He broke his leg, both bones, and then we had to take him to the hospital. And while he was in the hospital, the nurses came and they said, Hey, we have to give him partial anesthetics because we need to put the leg in place to plaster it first.

00:38:55--> 00:39:09

And before that happened, another person in front of us, he got the partial anesthetics because his shoulder was out of place. They had to put it back. And to do that it's very painful. So they give partial anesthetic. And when that happened to that person, he was high.

00:39:10--> 00:39:28

He was high and he was saying things that he doesn't remember. And he was saying to the nurse things that he shouldn't be saying, right? And his mother was video recording him. She found it very funny. And the chef next to me is like what's going to happen to me? I'm going to go through that what am I going to say? So panela

00:39:29--> 00:39:42

I was there and they gave him the partial amnesty. While law allowing the entire time they were straightening his leg. His eyes were closed. His finger is up. And he's reciting Quran with

00:39:43--> 00:39:48

his finger is up and he's reciting code and the entire time and he doesn't remember any of it.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

And what was amazing was the nurse came up to him right to his face. And he said, she's looking and then she looked at me and then she said What is he saying?

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

And then I said, Well, he's reciting the Quran, which is the book of the Muslims to follow the book of Allah. And we follow this just like the Christians have their Bible, you know, we have our poor. And

00:40:11--> 00:40:31

she said, This is amazing. I have never seen something like this. The guy is giving Tao while he's unconscious. So think about that for a moment. So imagine when we in agony of death, being conscious and unconscious, what are we going to say then going back to that Sharla melas pattern to make us from that. Lastly, last point.

00:40:32--> 00:40:53

And this is the hardest. And that is to connect yourself with a love through the head to pray. Specifically the hygiene partner. And that's the hardest to do. All the others are okay, you just need to spend a bit of time but getting up in the morning is very tough, but yet the most rewarding Why?

00:40:54--> 00:41:31

Because at that time, everyone else is asleep. And it is you alone with a loss of Hannah hautala you weren't alone seeing the messages when we perform the prayers I'm not putting down the regular Salah but when you performing the prayers he people illiteracy so sometimes the thought of you know, people watching me others are watching me and sometimes you know, when you're when you're standing next to your potential father in law, you want to pray perfectly well for him to you know, give give his daughter to you I don't know. But so Pamela think about it right? You want to learn with Alon into how to that shows sincerity. That shows true belief and true worship.

00:41:33--> 00:41:36

And there are so many are hiding but what I want to mention

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

and this has been reported to us

00:41:40--> 00:42:00

have to live in harmony with your loved one he saw a dream once in the dream he was in paradise. And he said that I was going around paradise holding a cloth of silk flying around with him. And then he said I saw two angels coming towards me in a harsh manner. And they wanted to grab me and take me to hellfire.

00:42:01--> 00:42:28

So he said I got really scared. And then another angel appeared and told me Don't worry, you're safe. And when to those two angels, you go away and he said I woke up and he was quite afraid. And then he told help set up the level I'm happy about the dream house I reported it to the prophets of alarm it was syllable upon he said I'll do live in harmony is a great man. But he would be even greater if he performed his 200 price.

00:42:29--> 00:42:33

I believe in our bodies. He said from that day onwards, I never left my

00:42:35--> 00:42:46

supanova that was assigned for him in order to become more close and connected to Allah then to the hydro. That's the level that he was on. So inshallah hotel We ask Allah to put us on that level as well.

00:42:48--> 00:43:29

With this, my brothers and my sisters, with this, if you do it on a daily basis, small change in your life, small part of your life has to change, spend a bit more time in the remembrance of Allah these ways will live your life will change and you will be so connected with a live alone will be connected to you and you will see your two hours being fulfilled going back to the first story you'll do as being fulfilled if you are being fulfilled in this world, then definitely you will be fulfilled in that as well and definitely will be amongst the people of gender talk systems. So we ask Allah subhanahu wa sallam to help us all achieve connection with him with a loss and otol We ask

00:43:29--> 00:44:08

Allah subhana wa sallam to forgive all of our sins and to forgive us for being so disconnected with him. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless each and every one of us and we ask Allah subhanahu Wata either to gather us like we are gathered here but in general for those who deserve to be located. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to to bless you for coming today Mashallah the numbers are increasing now. You know, and I hope that inshallah maybe from next week onwards we will get more and more people in sha Allah and will become more closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala does that mean okay? So tunnel vision this particular mo we have pictured Allah Allah Allah and Stokes Rocha to Morocco,

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
