00:01:54--> 00:01:55

As we travel

00:01:56--> 00:02:40

down the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And every day that we live, every second that goes by, we'll be coming closer to meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as we travel down this path, it's important that we constantly remind ourselves that we are on the correct path to Allah subhanho wa Taala because there's a lot of paths out there. But all paths don't lead to Rome as they say. Only one path leads to Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to remind ourselves of this reality. Imagine if you were to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala tomorrow, and all you did, from the good deeds, it was on the wrong path. And also part of what Salah reminds us of this.

00:02:41--> 00:02:53

When we read and saw total Caf, we read every Friday, when you look at verse 104 and lettino bottleless Johann Phil hayati, dounia homea.

00:02:56--> 00:03:05

Those who think they've gone astray, and this dunya they think they're doing good. They think they're doing good, but they're on the wrong path.

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

Imagine after all of these years, you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and you've been traveling down the wrong path.

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

We need to remind ourselves today in this whole bunch shala My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

what is the correct path?

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

What is the nature of this path? And how can we stay firm along the path inshallah tada

00:03:31--> 00:03:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala and our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it clear to us a loss of power to Allah said, well,

00:03:41--> 00:04:11

you're all the mustard demon, for who will let it who stole butter for Raka be common cibilia Allah subhana wa Taala told us that this is my path, the straight path, so follow it, and do not follow the paths because barely they will make you go straight from his paths upon what's out there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as he was gathered with his companions, he illustrated this for them. He drew a straight line at least Salatu was Salam on the ground.

00:04:12--> 00:04:34

And next that line, he drew small lines. And he told him this path in the middle, this is the path of a law and on the side of it, or paths at the end of each one of them is a shape on calling people to it beautifying that path, to warn us that there's only one path, but it's a lot of paths out there, the shell theme, I'm going to be calling you to those paths.

00:04:36--> 00:04:42

So we know from this ayah and from this Hadith, that there's only one path.

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

all paths don't lead to Rome. Only one path leads to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

but yet, it's confusing.

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

Because everywhere you go and the oma

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

you see everybody saying this is the correct path. Everybody calling a different gym is different groups, everybody

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

According to his own path, so which one is the correct one? All of them tell you more and sooner. So we need something to make it a little more clear which path is it? Because now you can you can be confused. Here's all these patterns and this is the correct way this is the way so which one is it?

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

explained it in more detail to us and some other Hadees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:26--> 00:06:06

He told us as it came in the hadith of bb rhodiola when the process Adam gave them a Morita reminder, it shook their hearts and it made the tears come to their eyes. And they said give us advice. And from the advice the province was in them gave them this Howdy. He said woman, CH mean confessor on the left and Kathy era, whoever lives from you is going to see a lot of differences. So Pamela, if we reflect my dear brothers and sisters in Islam on the sooner babila the prophets always tell him how he used to train us to be prepared. Pay attention, you're gonna see a lot of differences in oma so what is the solution? What's the way out the province that Allahu alayhi wa

00:06:06--> 00:06:31

sallam who was sent as a Rama Illa Allah Amina mercy to mankind. He said finally come as soon as it was soon that the whole affair Roshi dnl Medina embody, it's upon you to follow my Sunnah. And the sooner my hula after me, and he continued on a Salatu was salam to put more emphasis on this is the only way to success for the oma. He said I'll do I lay have been bite down on it with your molar teeth.

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

Will he come

00:06:36--> 00:06:55

and stay away from the invented matters in the religion when coolum was in beta wakulla Allah Allah, Allah bless him for now, because every thing that's embedded into the region is a form of beta and every bit out is a form of strangeness and every form of strangeness is in the hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from the Hellfire noble alameen

00:06:56--> 00:07:04

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed us in more detail and more detail what is this path? The correct path.

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

He told us

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

that the oma will be divided. made it clear to us la Salatu was Salam. He didn't die la sala to Islamic he left it very clear. He said I laid it out to us around turaco Kumara.

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

lei aloha can

00:07:20--> 00:07:29

use Ivana Illa Holic I left you on the ball that which is clear, nobody goes a stray from it except the one who was the one who destroys himself.

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

He said la Salatu was Salam. If terracotta Leah who there was a marina

00:07:36--> 00:08:04

with terracotta and nosara if nothing he was Sabrina Federica was a terrible Mattila. It was Sabrina Philco, Hulu have in illa wahida Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the Jews before us, they were divided into 71 set the Christians into 72. And he said this Omar will be divided into 73 all of them or pass the throne. Pay attention to all of them

00:08:05--> 00:08:10

will be in the hellfire. All of them. Except for one.

00:08:11--> 00:08:28

That's scary. That's scary. All of these groups who think they're following the correct path to Allah subhanho wa Taala all of them will be in the Hellfire except for one. It's scary. And it scared the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

they immediately said mannheimia Rasulullah Who are they understood Allah show us who they are so we can be from them.

00:08:37--> 00:08:43

He said my honor kind of my my alley healios hobby he said what me and my companions are upon to date.

00:08:44--> 00:08:50

This is the path the Quran and Sunnah on the way of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu

00:08:51--> 00:09:33

This is the only path to Allah subhanho wa Taala but we need to be even more clear about this. Because you might find some people who say the same thing Yeah, we follow this hub as well. But the process lm he said I left you upon the be of all that which is clear, very clear. If you look into the actions of any group, or any path that say they're calling to Allah subhana wa tada and ask yourself a simple question. Is this the path of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was to the law? So the law while he was seldom have done this, somebody says we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we followed his path. And when he makes it thicker, he's singing and dancing. Whoo

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

hoo

00:09:35--> 00:09:54

ha, dancing around, doing the moonwalk, the worm on the ground, to awaken dickin Allahu Akbar. Did the prophet SAW Is that him do this. No. What do you have done something stupid like that? No. You look at the promises and how he was he wouldn't have done that. No way he would have done it. When you look at those who follow into extremism.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

Is this the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and pay attention to the word extremism because

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

as Muslims now we have a problem calling to the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala of two extremes.

00:10:08--> 00:10:34

Not the one you see on the media all the time, not just that one. But the one that wants to compromise the deen wants to give up things of the deen wants to water down the dean, the dean, that's also a form of extremism. Did the Prophet so let's ask the same question. Did he compromise the deen to please others? Did he leave things from the dean to please others? Or did he brought it? Did he bring the dean just like Allah subhana wa tada told him do la salatu salam.

00:10:35--> 00:10:58

When he was about to dilate, salatu salam and had to adapt the farewell pilgrimage. He stood in front of his companions. He said, Oh Allah, help Allah He asked him help. allottees as companions, he said Did I relay the message did his job Elisa, we didn't compromise wasn't willing to compromise. The courage came to me said compromise. Let's make an agreement. Let's meet in the middle.

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

The Deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. No compromising. That's a form of extremism. And the other form of extremism that we see today. When it comes to a group like ISIS.

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

And we see what they're doing. And the youth were being affected Allahu Akbar, the halifa. Let's go.

00:11:19--> 00:11:34

It sounds beautiful, the grief and bringing the Muslims back to the deen implementing Sharia. It sounds nice. But if we look at the actions of these people, it's just the action of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam killing innocent Muslims.

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

This is the reality people on the ground will tell you who see what's happening with these people killing innocent Muslims. Is this the way of Rasulullah sallallahu

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

was the province of them have killed another Muslim like this?

00:11:50--> 00:11:58

So we know right away, so Panama albedo, something that's clear. The methodology of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam any group

00:11:59--> 00:12:31

who claimed to be following the Prophet system, they found the Quran and Sunnah all you have to do is look at it because the way of the promises and has laid upon it, it's clear to all those who want to be who truly want to follow the Quran and Sunnah according to the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu. Now, the question comes with this clearness, it should be clear to all the Muslims Why do so many people turn away from this path? Why do they turn away from the path of Allah subhana wa tada several reasons ignorance

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

is one of the main reasons people don't want to learn.

00:12:37--> 00:12:51

And also when it comes to the issue of following without which they found their forefathers upon one of the main disease of the oma following what the forefathers are upon Yaki the Quran says this, the sooner the Prophet says Adam says he said, but I'm from this method.

00:12:53--> 00:13:27

But since I Buhari No, but I'm, I'm this I'm Hanafi americium Shafi. Yeah, he said Buhari, sorry, you reject the idea of the process that I'm sitting on this. You come to another person and he's from a nationality. See, okay, Islam says this from Pakistan. I'm from India. I'm from Morocco. I'm from Sudan, wherever you're from in the world, so we have different Islam wherever you go. So different Islamic each country you go to a lot more, or it's one Islam. This one the main disease that killed the oma ignorance in following what the forefathers upon even if they don't understand or not rightfully got it as a loss of panatela described in the Quran.

00:13:29--> 00:14:00

These are some of the reasons why the people have gone astray. But what we need to reflect on my dear brothers as well is now that we know the correct path that we know is one path, we need to know how to stay firmly upon the path and before that, what is the nature of the path now we know which one it is, we're on and soon according to our beloved Prophet, to the way of the Sahaba while the Allahu anhu this is the this is the way what is the nature of that path? Once you start to follow it the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

is it going to be easy?

00:14:04--> 00:14:25

Is it going to be an easy path? Or is it gonna be a difficult one? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us till Jen Bill mcherry wolferton. Misha works, that Jenna is surrounded by difficulties. Why the Hellfire is surrounded by the lust and the desires.

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

It's going to be difficult path to get to the agenda to reach a loss of power of attorneys please, we're gonna be tested and let the hand up Animoto will hire

00:14:37--> 00:14:46

the ones who panelboards Allah Who created death and life to test you which one of you is best indeed. You're here to be tested. It's gonna be a difficult path. You think you're not going to be tested?

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

You think Allah subhanho wa Taala told us happy or has he been nurse? Are you trochu aku Amanda home life no Subhanallah you think you're gonna say I believe in you're not going to be tested. Remember, this is

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

As the oma faces difficulty as you face difficulty try to practice your deen remember this do you think you're gonna say amen now that we believed and you're not tested when applied for 10 LLM in public him? Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Monica de bien and the law says we have tested those who came before you.

00:15:19--> 00:15:33

In total look barely to make it clear to a lot of notes but to make it clear to him and to the other panelists, Allah, those who are the honest ones and those who are the liars, the difficulties that we face as an oma sapan Allah, it shows the reality of the of the soccer team.

00:15:35--> 00:15:42

This is the nature of the path it's a difficult one. So how can we stay firm along the path as we traveled to Allah subhana wa tada

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

The key thing and the most important thing

00:15:48--> 00:16:08

is our relationship with the last panel what's on your tour eat your class to Allah subhanho wa Taala your sincerity to align and you as you travel down the path that you associate to a law that you want to be successful that you want to hold firm to the Quran and Sunnah. You want to do what I told you to do, you want to stay away from what he told you to stay away from.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

And you have a promise.

00:16:11--> 00:16:20

A guarantee that if you do, what's going to happen, a guarantee From who? from Allah subhana wa Tada. If you strive for a law

00:16:22--> 00:16:36

as you travel it you have to travel down the path anyways. It's not a path you can't choose not to travel them. All of us have to travel down the path to Allah subhana wa tada and we're gonna stand in front of a long behind the kind of all of us had to travel down that path. But if you strive for a law

00:16:37--> 00:17:18

as you travel down that path, you have a promise, a guarantee from Allah subhanho wa Taala when levena jaha delphina learner the unknown Suba Luna, we're in the law Halima and Marcin in Panama law. Well, I just I can't be translated. The Arabic language is so strong Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this verse, those who strive for us, that valley, we will guide him to our way Verily, Allah will guide you to his way he'll guide you along that path if you strive for him. And barely a law will be with the doers of good in the law. Hello, Mr. Mancini, sapan hutan he's going to be with you. He's going to assist you. He's going to help you if you strive for him to

00:17:18--> 00:17:30

panatela I promise from Allah subhanho wa Taala have a class tolosa panels as you travel down the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have another guarantee, from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

that if

00:17:34--> 00:18:12

you hold firm to something, if you follow the instructions of the rasuluh similar Selim that you'll never go astray, he said la salaatu wa Salaam Tareq to feed my intimate self to be he learned to the Lewy Body keytab a law was in the process and he said I left behind for you that what if you hold firm to your property holding firm to not with the lease and with the tongue only and your actions, holding firms he said that you will never go astray after we look at that promise from home from a suit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said the book of Allah and my sooner sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who hold firm to the Quran and Sunnah.

00:18:12--> 00:18:21

barakallahu li will come through court and he was sooner whenever anyway you can be my fee him and it would take him a coup. Holy hell, there was stuff for Aloha. Hola, hola, como stop you.

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

Bismillah huaca wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Mustafa we're back.

00:18:43--> 00:18:48

And from the things my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, that we need to focus on doing

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

if we're going to hold firm

00:18:53--> 00:19:04

as we traveled down the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala this path, the reality reality of life, you can't hide from it. you're traveling down the path right now as we sit here we're traveling down the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:05--> 00:19:17

As we go out of this Masjid in Shell without only traveling down the path to Allah subhana wa Tada, this is the life you're going to travel down the path until you meet Allah subhanaw taala you stand in front of a lot to be held accountable of what you did in this dunya.

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

From the things that we need to do if we're going to be successful, we need to build

00:19:25--> 00:20:00

a fortress, a fortress to protect us as we travel down this path. And that starts with strengthening our knowledge of Islam. Knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost, if you properly know Allah subhanho wa Taala How can you sin? How can you disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala if you know Allah subhanaw taala properly with his names and his attributes, how can you disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala when you know, when you know, he's looking at you, you know, he sees everything you do, he hears everything you say, even if you fall into sin, and everybody's gonna send you that

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

Emily go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala because you know who is a low?

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

Build the tuck when your heart What is the tough one and your actions.

00:20:10--> 00:20:43

The tough was to do with Allah subhanho wa Taala the promises of them told you to do and to stay away from what they told you to stay away. That's the tough one. If you do this, you have Taqwa and look at the beautiful example, that I bought hora de La Hoya and gave when the person came to me said, Yeah, but what is the topo? Tell us what a tough one. He gave an example from everyday life, the path of everyday life that you walked down. He gave me the example of the low one. He said, Have you ever been down a path that has thorns on it, pricking you as you walk through it? He said, Yeah, of course. He said, What did you do? He said, I have to that did you mean without the chemin he said

00:20:43--> 00:21:21

I tried to, to the right to the left to stay away from not getting pricked by these stores. He said that's a tough one. Stay away from the heroin like that. This is the tough one. Build your fortress, to your chakra, through your through your a bada our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

Those are going to help you stay firm. Allah subhanho wa Taala said was good enough Sikkim Allah Dena, the owner of the home beloved to Allah she you read una wicha so para la So to recap once again, the reminders that

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

come to us and we read it.

00:22:27--> 00:23:09

Allah subhana wa tada said make yourself patient with who with those who are making dua to Allah so panel and sign in the evening, the mornings, they want the face of Allah subhana wa tada be with these people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Allah Dini, really he fell young Dora, how do you call that the person is on the religion of his friend. So let you look. Look carefully as who you choose as a friend, the religion of your friend. That's how much different affects you. You want his religion. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam similar to saw him in Mena with a letter T. He said Don't be friend except for the believer. And the one who eats from

00:23:09--> 00:23:43

your food, meaning the one you hang out with the one you cheer with one who's coming to break bread with you. He said Don't let him eat from your food except the one who is the one who has taqwa. These are the friends you need to befriend yourself with, to keep you firm your brothers inshallah as you travel down the path to Allah subhanho wa Taala because the Mothman he's strong with his brothers weak by himself. May Allah subhana wa Tada. Increase the Brotherhood the love that we have for one another.
