00:00:23--> 00:00:27

Alhamdulillah Hera below the mean velocity but a little

00:00:29--> 00:01:06

while out with one is the mean Rashad one La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika lah shadow Mohammed Abu hora solo kata Milan BIA even more saline Allahumma salli wa sallam, Allah ab decoda seleka Muhammad, Allah Allah He was happy woman da da what he was standing up the Sunnah de la Yomi Deen wasallam test lemon Cassia Mr. Bhatt Farsi calm enough Seba Taka Allah azza wa jal with semi auto

00:01:32--> 00:02:27

All praises are due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and surely Allah is the friend and protector of the righteous. And I be a witness that Allah is one and has no paths that Mohammed the son of Abdullah, servant in his last messenger and mail are always and constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed, to his family to his companions, to all those who call to his way. establish his Sunnah to the day of judgment as to what follows. I begin by cautioning myself and you to have Taqwa, allow for Raja that we fear Allah azza wa jal, and we hope in the mercy of Allah. And this consciousness creates a type of Wikipedia, a type of shield around the believer

00:02:29--> 00:02:45

that protects him and her, not only in the masjid, but outside of the masjid. So taqwa is that quality, where we recognize the Presence of Allah azza wa jal in everything that we do,

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

in the masjid, outside of the masjid,

00:02:50--> 00:02:56

with Muslims, or with people of other faiths, on special occasions,

00:02:57--> 00:03:05

even at work, at play, we recognize that there is one who has power of all things.

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:11--> 00:03:22

has revealed this book this quote, and in such a way, that it would be relevant to people until the Day of Resurrection.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

And the more that we reflect upon the world, what is around us,

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

the more we reflect upon the revelation,

00:03:36--> 00:03:43

we should recognize that we have been blessed by the Creator of the heavens and the earth, to be Muslim.

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

In this world today,

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

we recognize that human beings have reached extreme, extreme situations.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

People are living in an illusion.

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

We have an illusion of civilization.

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

We have an illusion of peace and security.

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

But the reality on the ground is something in many cases, which is very much different.

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

The weather is changing. And many people especially on the eastern seaboard, were so happy this year.

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

That the winter did not strike us in the way that it did in the past.

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

But you will be surprised to know that in the northern part of the planet,

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

the polar ice caps are melting.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

Northwest Passage,

00:04:52--> 00:04:57

the area that could not be penetrated

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

by boats

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

Because of the ice and snow is now open, the top of the world is opening up

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

and the ice is melting and the water is rising, the temperature is changing.

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

But we are living in an illusion.

00:05:17--> 00:05:24

Because it seems as though things are getting better but from 2005 to 2010

00:05:25--> 00:05:30

it was the hottest years ever recorded by human beings.

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

The natural disasters on the planet doubled.

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis,

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

but people are living in an illusion.

00:05:49--> 00:06:04

Even though the environment is screaming for human beings, to change the way they produce things to change the carbon dioxide release, people are still in an illusion of a high culture.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

has revealed to us in circle and BIA

00:06:14--> 00:06:19

right in the beginning of this mighty chapter Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:06:20--> 00:06:33

It shut up Allah nasty hisar boo home. We're home feola flaten moredun Maja t him and Declan Mira be him more tirthan illustre tomorrow who are homie Allah Boone.

00:06:34--> 00:06:41

Allah revealed closer and closer to humanity comes their reckoning.

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

Yet they do not care.

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

They turn away

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

whenever a renewed message comes to them from their Lord. They listened to it and they play look at the words of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

More messages come and the environment is rumbling and people turn to sport and play.

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

The World Cup

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

Super Bowl Sunday

00:07:14--> 00:07:30

March Madness, the Cricket World Cup rugby championships, people turn to sport and play as a means of diverting reality from them, just as Allah subhanaw taala has informed us.

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

So it is an illusion,

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

an illusion of civilization.

00:07:37--> 00:07:49

We are producing more things than ever, it appears. But yet the reality on the ground is that the largest part of the budget is being given toward the military.

00:07:51--> 00:08:03

And along with that, the recreation and the shocking thing about recreation is that the largest part of recreation right now is pornography.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

Pornography from the year 2006

00:08:08--> 00:08:11

grossed over $97 billion.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

Pornography makes more money

00:08:16--> 00:08:28

than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, apple, next Netflix earthlink, all of them combined.

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

Who are the main people who are watching pornography? children between the ages of 12 and 17.

00:08:38--> 00:08:56

This is the danger and our children are involved. And when a person loses their HIA when you lose your modesty when you lose your relationship with other human beings, there's nothing else left the prophet SAW Selim was even reported to have to have said is lm testa he first now.

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

If you don't have higher, then do what you want to do you capable of doing anything.

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

So it's an illusion.

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

A society based with wealth is based is recreation based on drugs. gambling.

00:09:19--> 00:09:33

A lot told us what manhyia to dunya ilimitado hurrah. The life of this world is nothing but material deception. It's an illusion of freedom.

00:09:34--> 00:09:52

Where we think that we are free. We think that we are in the land of the free and yes, there are certain freedoms that you will get in these lands you will not get anywhere else in the world. However, you can never forget the First Nations people.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

Do not forget that 500 years ago, there were over 75 million people living

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

in the Americas 75 million people, where are these people? Where are the great civilizations?

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

It's an illusion.

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

The very society itself.

00:10:18--> 00:10:31

Basis of the society was based on a slave system. So it's an illusion of freedom. And Muslims now find themselves in the barrel of decision.

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

Why are they so concerned about Muslims?

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

Is it what we are doing? No.

00:10:40--> 00:10:56

Because we believe in one God, we are making prints, we are fasting, we are giving charity. We are trying to break down differences in race, and color and nationality.

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

But yet, and still we are feeling this pressure.

00:11:02--> 00:11:08

And that is a shock for many people who are not aware of the reality of the illusion.

00:11:09--> 00:11:17

Our societies are rising. Now. We have some of the richest people on the face of the planet Earth.

00:11:19--> 00:11:40

And don't look at the top 10 rich people in the world. They tell you the top 10 rich men or people on earth, some of our leaders, they don't even have their money in a bank account. their money is the gross national product of the country itself. So you cannot even count their money.

00:11:41--> 00:11:45

So we have some of the richest people on the face of the planet Earth.

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

We have large standing armies.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

We have young people,

00:11:52--> 00:12:14

we have great potential over 50% of the mineral wealth on the face of the planet Earth is underneath our countries. So we are a nation of the future. Our recent study was done and it found that 60% of Muslims are under 25 years old.

00:12:16--> 00:12:25

So we are a nation with great potential. great potential, but the contradiction is there, the contradiction,

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

great wealth, but yet we have poverty and our nation.

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

Great sources and knowledge. But yet there is arguing over simple things.

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

I'll also point out are revealed in circle hatia.

00:12:45--> 00:13:17

Oh you who believe have the consciousness of Allah and let every soul look to what it put forward for tomorrow and fear Allah surely Allah is well aware of all that you do. And be not as those who forgot Allah and so he made them forget themselves. Surely they are the disobedient ones. So Allah azza wa jal gives us a gem of wisdom. Letter kulu kaladin Ernesto Lucha for unser home enforcer,

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

you forget Allah, He will make you forget yourself.

00:13:23--> 00:13:28

And so don't be surprised. Don't be surprised that what is happening on the outside

00:13:29--> 00:13:55

and don't let it harm you because Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us about this. We are hearing terrible things being said about Muslims, calling us people of terror and violence, when the basis of our religion is peace, calling us people wanting to destroy civilization. But the basis of our way of life is the upliftment of civilization.

00:13:56--> 00:14:23

What did Allah azza wa jal tell us? In Surah Al e Imran verse 186, Allah told us ooh Billahi min ash shaytani regime. la tabla one fee Anwar Li como unphysical Allah testimo nominal Athena o two Kitab a min kubelik legal woman allatheena Shaco en kathira y en tous spirou what a taco for in the valley come in. asmin Amore.

00:14:24--> 00:14:34

Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, you shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in yourselves.

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

And you shall certainly hear much that will grieve you from those who received the book before you and from those who worship partners besides Allah. But if you persevere patiently and guard against evil, that indeed will be the greatest resolution of your problem. We're in hospital what a taco for

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Delica miasmic como

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

taqwa,

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

and Saba

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

patiently persevere

00:15:12--> 00:15:15

no matter what they say we continue on without D.

00:15:16--> 00:15:48

No matter what they prescribe against our faith, we continue to do what is right. This is the time. This is the time when the companions of the Prophet SAW Salah, when things got really difficult, they would turn to Rasulullah saw the Salah, they would turn to the Messenger of Allah, he would he would turn to the book of Allah azza wa jal, and it is through that sauce, that they would gain solace within themselves and they would gain direction.

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

We are in a material world.

00:15:53--> 00:16:03

We are surrounded by things, temptations, surrounded by obstacles. It is a great challenge in front of us.

00:16:04--> 00:16:14

What would Allah azza wa jal tell us? What formula can we take from the book of Allah azza wa jal to help us in this, this is the time

00:16:15--> 00:16:22

when the companions of the Prophet Sal Sal would look deeply into the words of the Creator.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

In surah, to shorter

00:16:26--> 00:16:38

verses 36 to 39. There is a divine formula, a divine formula, and we need to begin to have a new relationship with the court

00:16:39--> 00:16:59

because the great scholars of the Sahara Desert would say you want to be sincere to the court and there are three things to say until our tea was a double iottie he was it's Barack Obama, he's three stages. Read it with Tajweed in a beautiful way

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

to double it, think about it, reflect on it. ponder about the meanings but don't stop there. The third level is

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

a woman

00:17:13--> 00:17:32

follow its commands in this mighty chapter. And Shura is one of the most important qualities we need right now. Sure. consultation speaking to each other transparency, being open.

00:17:33--> 00:18:10

A lot told us are also Billahi min. Ash shaytaan the regime from our ot tolmin Shea in from attack with hayata dunya en de la he hailed when we're up Carla, Xena amanu where Allah Azza wa Jalla wa ala Xena yet steady buena kabbah al Islam wallflower his wife Eva de boo homeopathy rune. Well Nadine esta Jabu lira be him. Where are commerce Allah wa amerihome Shura bainer home while mimar does not home unifocal will levena either a Saba human body who Montecito

00:18:11--> 00:18:45

Allah subhanaw taala has given us 10 qualities 10 areas to think about the translation of the Iet goes as follows. Whatever you are given here is but the enjoyment of this life. But that which is with Allah is better and more lasting. It is for those who believe and put their trust in the Lord, those who avoid major sins and in decencies. And when they are angry, even then they forgive

00:18:46--> 00:19:06

those who respond to the Lord and establish regular press who conduct their affairs by mutual consultation, and who spend out of what We give them from the substance. And those who went and oppressive wrong is done to them. They stand up and they defend themselves.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

10 points to think about this is a divine formula.

00:19:13--> 00:19:44

In the same way, a man will come to your business and say you want to improve your business. You want to be a millionaire. Follow 10 steps. You want to lose weight, follow 10 steps. We are in the life of this world. We need to look at the book of Allah subhanaw taala this formula is like medicine to us. At a time when we need to think about our lives. What should we reflect upon? What should we teach our children?

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

What is it to be a Muslim? It's not just wearing clothes, or changing your name to Ali or Xena.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

What is it to be a Muslim number one

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

recognition

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

The material dunya to recognize that this is a deception. The life of this dunya will not hire to dunya Illa matar.

00:20:11--> 00:20:18

It is a material deception. If you were to live, I were to live 100 years. That's a long time.

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

You take 100 years, divide that into the next life. Holly Dena, Fie ha Avada

00:20:29--> 00:20:37

eternal life. If you divided, the answer is zero, this life is zero.

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

And so recognize the material world, that the money the wealth that we have, it's a test. It's a test, what will you do with the wealth?

00:20:50--> 00:20:59

Will you keep it? Will you give it will you help the poor? We help the massage it? What will you do? We are all under a test.

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

Number two,

00:21:03--> 00:21:10

that the great benefit of the next life is for people who have Eman what

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

they truly believe in the Lord and they depend upon the law. They depend upon it.

00:21:18--> 00:21:30

So if the dollar falls, if the pound falls, if the RAND or the rupee or the deerhound or the dinar, if all the paper money disappears.

00:21:31--> 00:21:45

We still say Alhamdulillah. Our Razzak Allah is the one who provides the bird that flies out during the day to get food doesn't care whether the dollar is up or down.

00:21:47--> 00:21:57

The true believer depends upon his Lord. So to what called Allah Allah, this is a key issue, bolstering our faith. Number three,

00:21:59--> 00:22:25

it's tunap al kabaya. Stay away from major sins. The major sense we all need to study keytab Kabbalah is many of the great scholars have put together what are the major steps since we need to understand what they are and stay away from them to polytheism shirk the magic, committing murder,

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

interest in usury, stealing from the offense, and so forth and so on.

00:22:34--> 00:22:51

Number four, avoid indecency. Avoid sexual immorality and our children have to be taught. There's nothing to be ashamed of. nothing to be ashamed of, to be modest.

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

to lower your gaze

00:22:54--> 00:23:11

to be modest in your dress, there is nothing to be ashamed of. And you will see that are protected protection from Allah subhanaw taala is around those who have higher and higher as opposed to solemn told us is even part of email.

00:23:12--> 00:23:26

It is part of the faith to have modesty. And so we are a modest nation. We are a nation of limits. And that gives us strength. It gives us strength.

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

The prophet SAW seldom said

00:23:29--> 00:23:34

there were three people from polish. They were the best of people.

00:23:35--> 00:23:40

They were the best of people and they had hired a lot of hire.

00:23:42--> 00:24:05

If they speak to you, they tell you the truth. And if you speak to them, they will not accuse you of telling lies. No sooner than they do not have bad suspicion of Abu Bakr, Siddiq earthman Ebony our fan and Abu Zubaydah Ibn Al Jazeera rhodiola one casiotone hyah

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

but the strongest of believers number five

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

in anger,

00:24:14--> 00:24:20

what you thought the Boo from your feet, when they are angry, they forget

00:24:21--> 00:24:37

they get emotional, they forgive. We have to control our emotions, in our family situations. In our Masjid situation, keep the motions for the right time. Keep it for the right time.

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

Number six is to Java lilla. This is Kelly my Jamia responding to Allah. It is a general quality. If you hear something from the court and you respond to it. If you hear something from the sooner you respond to it like the baby The baby has natural

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

digenova for the mother. And so the baby learns that's the fitrah because the baby is on the fitrah we need to return to the fitrah. When we hear the words of Allah subhanaw taala we take it inside, we want to know more about it, we want to do it. We want to come closer to the example of the Prophet, so Salah in everything that we do. Number seven

00:25:25--> 00:25:57

karma to Salah that we established prayers in our lives, not only in the masjid, at work, at school, even in the malls, wherever we are, when the time comes. We give to a loss upon Allah what is due. And that keeps us in line that keeps us in a relationship with the Creator of the heavens. Number eight, Shura. amerihome Shura, Dana.

00:25:59--> 00:26:13

consultation in our families talk to each other. One of the greatest problems we're having in our families, husband and wife talk to each other. If you have a problem, talk about

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

parents and children. Speak to the children let the teenagers talk.

00:26:20--> 00:27:09

And if you can't do it yourself, bring in somebody, a counselor from the outside, don't let the problem become too great that it cannot be solved. Solve it in the beginning talk Shura Masjid, we have a problem in the masjid. We have a difference of opinion, solve the problem, even we agree to disagree. But we're still brothers and sisters. If we don't do this, then the master becomes too much. It's for eight. This happens in all of us it is because we don't have shorter. And that's the problem in our Muslim countries. That's one of the big problems that the heads of state and leaders do not listen to the people. And that's the reason why they're marching in the streets and saying a

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

shop you read is caught on without

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

the people want the system to come down.

00:27:17--> 00:27:20

They want this bad relationship to end.

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

They want the 99% to have a voice and not to be ruled by Tel Aviv, the top hoots who have been put in there

00:27:32--> 00:27:35

by those who do not fear Allah. Number nine,

00:27:37--> 00:28:10

what really matters. Now who unifocal the wealth that you have, we spend it in the path of Allah, we will be called upon in our communities in the next 10 years. And Allah knows best and further giving is a natural thing. Because the calamities and crises in the Muslim world and the rest of the world are not going to stop, the environment is changing, it is gone through we're being thrown off this earth like a virus.

00:28:11--> 00:28:26

Because we're not dealing with our responsibility as califa on the face of this planet Earth. And so relief work, we should naturally give to relief work and not look at it as something extra to

00:28:28--> 00:28:55

we will be called upon to deal with the poor and the needy right here in North America. Because there are poor people right here amongst you, even amongst the Muslims. And three, we will be called upon to spend our wealth to defend those Muslims who are incarcerated, who have been unjustly put into prisons, especially from our leadership, we will be called upon to do this.

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

Number 10.

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

They stand up when oppression is done to them. When wrong is done to them. They are not cowed. They are not afraid. They stand up and they do something. They change it with the hands if they can't they say something at least. Or they feel it in their hearts. They try to make some change. Because we are now in a state of change. And we want an Islamic State. We want Islamic politics. We want Islamic economics.

00:29:33--> 00:29:38

But Allah subhanaw taala has told us in Allah Allah you value Roma be comin

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

Roma be unforeseen. Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves. And so we are in a great opportunity now. This Omar has the ability in it to lead the world. It's going to be painful. Now, as we stand up, there will be

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

pain and suffering. But we have to continue. And we have to take the book of Allah serious because we're going to feel like strangers in this world. They take off their clothes in the summer we put them on.

00:30:15--> 00:30:18

They take drugs for everything. We fast.

00:30:20--> 00:31:14

They take interest in usury and gamble. We stay away we try to stay away the best possible way we can. So we feel strange as Muslims, but the prophet SAW Selim did not speak from himself. And in an authentic hadith he told us in Islam I better have an even worse idea. Even for toolbar little hurrah. Islam began strange and that will return to being strange, so glad tiding to the strangers. They asked him yada Sula, who are the strangers. He said Allah Zina usili hoonah and the facade ness. They are the people who repair themselves, repair society, when the people have become corrupted. May Allah subhanaw taala make us and this Omar from the hora ba May Allah subhanaw taala

an old fashion cover Buffy. Yeah, is a con la la quinta de kado.

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

supernote Allah has informed us.

00:34:32--> 00:34:33

So it is an illusion,

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

an illusion of civilization.

00:34:38--> 00:34:50

We are producing more things than ever, it appears. But yet the reality on the ground is that the largest part of the budget is being given toward the military.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

And along with that, the recreation and the shocking thing about recreation is that the largest

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

Part of recreation right now is pornography.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

Pornography from the year 2006.

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

grossed over $97 billion.

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

Pornography makes more money

00:35:17--> 00:35:29

than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, apple, next Netflix earthlink, all of them combined.

00:35:30--> 00:35:37

Who are the main people who are watching pornography, children between the ages of 12 and 17.

00:35:39--> 00:35:57

This is the danger and our children are involved. And when a person loses their HIA, when you lose your modesty when you lose your relationship with other human beings, there's nothing else left. The prophet SAW Selim was even reported to have to have said either lambda study first now.

00:35:59--> 00:36:05

If you don't have higher, then do what you want to do you capable of doing anything.

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

So it's an illusion.

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

A society based, which wealth is based is recreation based on drugs, gambling,

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

a lot told us or manhyia to dunya ilimitado.

00:36:26--> 00:36:34

The life of this world is nothing but material deception. It's an illusion of freedom.

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

Where we think that we are free.

00:36:38--> 00:36:53

We think that we are in the land of the free and yes, there are certain freedoms that you will get in these lands, you will not get anywhere else in the world. However, you can never forget the First Nations people.

00:36:54--> 00:37:09

Do not forget that 500 years ago, there were over 75 million people living in the Americas 75 million people. Where are these people? Were the great civilizations.

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

It's an illusion.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

The very society itself.

00:37:19--> 00:37:32

Basis of the society was based on a slave system. So it's an illusion of freedom. And Muslims now find themselves in the barrel of decision.

00:37:33--> 00:37:36

Why are they so concerned about Muslims?

00:37:37--> 00:37:40

Is it what we are doing? No.

00:37:41--> 00:37:57

Because we believe in one God, we are making prints, we are fasting, we are giving charity. We are trying to break down differences in race, and color and nationality.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

But yet, and still we are feeling this pressure.

00:38:03--> 00:38:09

And that is a shock for many people who are not aware of the reality of the illusion.

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

Our societies are rising now. We have some of the richest people on the face of the planet Earth.

00:38:20--> 00:38:27

And don't look at the top 10 rich people in the world. They tell you the top 10 rich men or people on earth,

00:38:28--> 00:38:41

some of our leaders, they don't even have their money in a bank account. their money is the gross national product of the country itself. So you cannot even count their money.

00:38:42--> 00:38:46

So we have some of the richest people on the face of the planet Earth.

00:38:47--> 00:38:50

We have large standing armies.

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

We have young people,

00:38:53--> 00:39:15

we have great potential over 50% of the mineral wealth on the face of the planet Earth is underneath our countries. So we are a nation of the future. A recent study was done and it found that 60% of Muslims are under 25 years old.

00:39:17--> 00:39:26

So we are a nation with great potential. great potential, but the contradiction is there, the contradiction

00:39:27--> 00:39:31

great wealth, but yet we have poverty in our nation.

00:39:33--> 00:39:40

Great sources of knowledge, but yet there is arguing over simple things.

00:39:41--> 00:39:44

A loss of planetary revealed in Surah Al hatia.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

Oh you who believe have the consciousness of Allah and let every soul look to what it put forward for tomorrow and fear Allah surely Allah is well aware of all that you do.

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

Be not as those who forgot Allah and so he made them forget themselves. Surely they are the disobedient ones. So Allah azza wa jal gives us a gem of wisdom letter Qunu Kadena Nestle Lucha for unser home and fossa.

00:40:19--> 00:40:22

You forget Allah, He will make you forget yourself.

00:40:24--> 00:40:29

And so don't be surprised. Don't be surprised that what is happening on the outside

00:40:30--> 00:40:56

and don't let it harm you because Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us about this. We are hearing terrible things being said about Muslims, calling us people of terror and violence, when the basis of our religion is peace, calling us people wanting to destroy civilization, but the basis of our way of life is the upliftment of civilization.

00:40:57--> 00:41:24

What did Allah azza wa jal tell us? In Serato? alley imraan verse 186. Allah told us ooh Billahi min ash shaytani regime, Latrobe la FEA Anwar Li como unphysical Allah testimonia mina Latina o to kita Berman Cobb legal woman alesina ashra Co. l then kathira y intraspinal what a taco for in the valley comin asmin Amore.

00:41:25--> 00:41:35

Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, you shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in yourselves.

00:41:36--> 00:42:03

And you shall certainly hear much that will grieve you from those who received the book before you and from those who worship partners besides Allah. But if you persevere patiently and guard against evil, that indeed will be the greatest resolution of your problem. When tos Pharaoh what a taco for in the Delica Min asmall como,

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

patiently persevere

00:42:13--> 00:42:16

no matter what they say we continue on without D.

00:42:17--> 00:42:49

No matter what they prescribe against our faith, we continue to do what is right. This is the time. This is the time when the companions of the Prophet SAW seller. when things got really difficult, they would turn to Russell lasala, Salah they would turn to the Messenger of Allah, he would he would turn to the book of Allah azza wa jal, and this through that source, that they would gain solace within themselves, and they would gain direction.

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

We are in a material world.

00:42:54--> 00:43:04

We are surrounded by things, temptations, surrounded by obstacles, it is a great challenge in front of us.

00:43:05--> 00:43:15

What would Allah azza wa jal tell us? What formula can we take from the book of Allah azza wa jal to help us in this, this is the time

00:43:16--> 00:43:23

when the companions of the Prophet Sal Sal would look deeply into the words of the Creator.

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

And sort of shorter

00:43:27--> 00:43:39

verses 36 to 39. There is a divine formula, a divine formula, and we need to begin to have a new relationship with the court

00:43:40--> 00:44:00

because the great scholars of the Sahara Desert would say you want to be sincere to the court and there are three things tahseen tilawat. He was a double iottie he was a woman, he's three stages. Read it with Tajweed in a beautiful way

00:44:01--> 00:44:11

to double it, think about it, reflect on it. ponder about the meanings but don't stop there. The third level it's

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

a woman

00:44:14--> 00:44:33

follow its commands in this mighty chapter. And Shura is one of the most important qualities we need right now. Shura consultation speaking to each other transparency being open.

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

Allah told us our Billahi min ash shaytaan the regime from our ot to min Shea in from attack on hyah to dunya mama en de la halen up Cali Latina amanu will Allah be him yet our cologne well the Xena yet steady Boone acaba idul. Islam alpha his wife, Eva de boo homeopathy rune. Well Nadine esta Jabu lira be him with a calmness.

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

sala amerihome Shura baina home. What mimar does aka na home unifocal well levena either a Saba human body who Montecito

00:45:12--> 00:45:46

Allah subhanaw taala has given us 10 qualities 10 areas to think about. The translation of it goes as follows. Whatever you are given here is but the enjoyment of this life, but that which is with Allah is better and more lasting. It is for those who believe, and put their trust in the Lord, those who avoid major sins and in decencies. And when they are angry, even then they forgive

00:45:47--> 00:46:07

those who respond to the Lord and establish regular press, who conduct their affairs by mutual consultation, and who spend out of what We give them from their substance. And those who went and oppressive wrong is done to them. They stand up and they defend themselves.

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

10 points to think about this is a divine formula.

00:46:14--> 00:46:45

In the same way, a man will come to your business and say you want to improve your business. You want to be a millionaire. Follow 10 steps, you want to lose weight, follow 10 steps. We are in the life of this world. We need to look at the book of Allah subhanaw taala this formula is like medicine to us. At a time when we need to think about our lives. What should we reflect upon? What should we teach our children?

00:46:46--> 00:46:52

What is it to be a Muslim? It's not just wearing clothes, or changing your name to Ali or Xena.

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

What is it to be a Muslim? Number one

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

recognition

00:47:00--> 00:47:19

of the material dunya to recognize that this is a deception. The life of this dunya will not hire to dunya Illa Matata hora. It is a material deception. If you were to live, I were to live 100 years. That's a long time.

00:47:21--> 00:47:28

You take 100 years, divide that into the next life. Holly, Dina fee ha Avada.

00:47:30--> 00:47:38

eternal life. If you divided the answer is zero. This life is zero.

00:47:40--> 00:47:49

And so recognize the material world that the money the wealth that we have. It's a test. It's a test what will you do with the wealth?

00:47:51--> 00:48:00

Will you keep it? Will you give it will you help the poor? We help to massage it? What will you do? We are all under attest

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

number two

00:48:04--> 00:48:18

that the great benefit of the next life is for people who have Eman what tilaka they truly believe in their Lord and they depend upon Allah they depend upon.

00:48:19--> 00:48:31

So if the dollar falls, if the pound falls, if the RAND or the rupee or the deerhound or the dinar if all the paper money disappears.

00:48:32--> 00:48:46

We still say 100 illa or Razzak Allah is the one who provides the bird that flies out during the day to get food doesn't care whether the dollar is up or down.

00:48:48--> 00:48:58

The true believer depends upon his Lord. So to what call Allah Allah, this is a key issue, bolstering our faith. Number three,

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

it's tunap al kabaya. Stay away from major sins, the major sense we all need to study keytab kabaya. Many of the great scholars have put together what are the major steps since we need to understand what they are and stay away from them. The polytheism shirk the magic, committing murder,

00:49:28--> 00:49:33

interest in usury, stealing from the orphans and so forth and so on.

00:49:35--> 00:49:51

Number four, avoid indecency. Avoid sexual immorality and our children have to be taught. There's nothing to be ashamed of. nothing to be ashamed of, to be modest.

00:49:53--> 00:49:54

to lower your gaze

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

to be modest in your dress. There is nothing to be ashamed of

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

You will see that our protection from Allah subhanaw taala is around those who have higher and higher as a process Allah told us is even part of Amen.

00:50:13--> 00:50:26

It is part of the faith, to have modesty. And so we are a modest nation. We are a nation of limits, and that gives us strength. It gives us strength.

00:50:28--> 00:50:29

The prophet SAW seldom said

00:50:30--> 00:50:35

there were three people from polish. They were the best of people.

00:50:36--> 00:50:41

They were the best of people. And they had hired a lot of hire.

00:50:43--> 00:51:06

If they speak to you, they tell you the truth. And if you speak to them, they will not accuse you of telling lies. No sooner than they do not have bad suspicion of people. Abu Bakr, Siddiq earthman Ebony our fan and Abu Zubaydah Ibn Al Jazeera rhodiola one casiotone hyah

00:51:07--> 00:51:11

but the strongest of believers number five

00:51:13--> 00:51:21

in anger, what you thought the Boo homeopathy room, when they are angry, they forget.

00:51:22--> 00:51:38

They get emotional, they forgive. We have to control our emotions in our family situations. And I must Majid situation, keep the motions for the right time. Keep it for the right time.

00:51:40--> 00:52:25

Number six is to Java Lila. This is Kelly my Jamia responding to a law. It is a general quality. If you hear something from the court and you respond to it. If you hear something from the Sunnah, you respond to it like the baby, the baby has natural is to Java for the mother. And so the baby learns that's the fitrah because the baby is on the fitrah we need to return to the fitrah when we hear the words of Allah subhanaw taala we take it inside, we want to know more about it, we want to do it. We want to come closer to the example of the Prophet so Salah in everything that we do. Number seven

00:52:26--> 00:52:55

karma to Salah that we established prayers in our lives, not only in the masjid, at work, at school, even in the malls, wherever we are, when the time comes. We give to a loss upon Allah what is due. And that keeps us in line that keeps us in a relationship with the Creator of the heavens. Number eight, Shura

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

Shura baina

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

consultation in our families talk to each other.

00:53:05--> 00:53:14

One of the greatest problems we having in our families, husband and wife talk to each other. If you have a problem, talk it out.

00:53:15--> 00:53:20

Parents and children speak to the children let the teenagers talk.

00:53:21--> 00:53:56

And if you can't do it yourself, bring in somebody a counselor from the outside. Don't let the problem become too great that it cannot be solved. Solve it in the beginning talk Shura Masjid, we have a problem in the masjid. We have a difference of opinion, solve the problem even we agree to disagree. But we're still brothers and sisters. If we don't do this, then the master becomes too much. It's for eight. This happens in all of our cities. Because we don't have shorter

00:53:57--> 00:54:12

and that's the problem in our Muslim countries. That's one of the big problems that the heads of state and leaders do not listen to the people. And that's the reason why they're marching in the streets and saying a shop you read a Scott on it.

00:54:14--> 00:54:17

The people want the system to come down.

00:54:18--> 00:54:21

They want this bad relationship to end.

00:54:22--> 00:54:31

They want the 99% to have a voice and not to be ruled by tau avete the top hoots who have been put in there

00:54:33--> 00:54:36

by those who do not fear Allah. Number nine,

00:54:38--> 00:54:59

what Mimara Zakat now who unifocal the wealth that you have, we spend it in the path of Allah, we will be called upon in our communities in the next 10 years and a lot knows best and further giving is a natural thing. Because the calamities and crises in the Muslim world

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

And the rest of the world are not going to stop. The environment is changing, it is gone through, we're being thrown off this earth like a virus.

00:55:12--> 00:55:27

Because we're not dealing with our responsibility as califa on the face of this planet Earth. And so, relief work, we should naturally give to relief work and not look at it as something extra to

00:55:29--> 00:55:56

we will be called upon to deal with the poor and the needy right here in North America. Because there are poor people right here amongst you, even amongst the Muslims. And three, we will be called upon to spend our wealth to defend those Muslims who are incarcerated, who have been unjustly put into prisons, especially from our leadership, we will be called upon to do this.

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

Number 10.

00:56:01--> 00:56:33

They stand up when oppression is done to them, when wrong is done to them. They are not coward, they are not afraid. They stand up. And they do something. They change it with the hands if they can't they say something at least, or they feel it in their hearts. They try to make some change. Because we are now in a state of change. And we want an Islamic State. We want Islamic politics. We want Islamic economics.

00:56:34--> 00:57:15

But Allah subhanaw taala has told us in Allahu Allah euroma be comin, tell you vedamo be unforeseen. Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves. And so we are in a great opportunity now, this Omar has the ability in it to lead the world. It's going to be painful. Now, as we stand up, there will be pain and suffering. But we have to continue and we have to take the book of Allah serious because we're gonna feel like strangers in this world. They take off their clothes in the summer we put them on.

00:57:16--> 00:57:19

They take drugs for everything. We fast.

00:57:21--> 00:58:16

They take interest in usury and gamble. We stay what we try to stay away the best possible way we can. So we feel strange as Muslims, but the prophet SAW Selim did not speak from himself. And in authentic hadith he told us in Islam a better even Messiah. Even for toolbar little hurrah. Islam began strange and it will return to being strange, so glad tiding to the strangers. They asked him yada Sula, who are the strangers. He said Allah Xena use Li hoonah and the facade ness. They are the people who repair themselves repair society when the people have become corrupted. May Allah subhanaw taala make us and this Omar from the hora ba May Allah subhanaw taala clear our hearts of

00:58:16--> 00:58:56

pride and jealousy and hatred. May Allah subhanaw taala unite the home of Mohammed Salah Salah May Allah subhanaw taala Have mercy and protect the children of the oma Mohammed says Allah. May Allah have mercy and protect the dignity and honor of the women of Mohammed Salah Salah May Allah subhanaw taala protect the dignity of the men of the Omar Mohammed sauce Allah May Allah raise up political leaders in our in our Muslim world who will take us from darkness into light. And may Allah azza wa jal Have mercy on all those Muslims who are falling down and dying, those in Syria. Those in Philistine any part of the world may or may not give them comfort right now in that time of

00:58:56--> 00:59:17

difficulty. May Allah give victory to the Mujahideen on the ground in sha Allah, and May Allah help us that our last word would be our best word.
