Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah what other day or sabe as mine, my brothers and my sisters in Islam it gives me great pleasure to be among you this morning or this afternoon whatever the time is.
Of course I'm walking through the school. I remember my these that I was here
of course I started kindergarten in this school kindergarten from the very first batch and went all the way through until I finished the 12 I graduated I think it was in 2006 Our teachers here blessed teachers, mashallah Scheffer was was Shahadat we don't forget the efforts mashallah, okay.
Let's listen my brothers and sisters
mashallah, mashallah I appreciate your warm welcoming, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all. My brothers and my sisters in Islam.
I ask Allah azza wa jal that he bless you all in your studies, and in your future is ask Allah azza wa jal that he keeps you since see, and that he allow you to accomplish that which you want to accomplish in life and to grant you steadfastness upon Iman and Islam. My brothers and my sisters in Islam, I want to share with you a very important Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and our talk is going to be about this hadith. This is a Hadith known as Hadith Guzzi
who knows what a hadith Bootsy is, have you heard of this word Hadith and could see Asha Matoba.
Masha Allah, Masha, Allah, and have even put see is what Allah azza wa jal revealed. That's what a hadith could see is, so essentially, its message and its wording is from Allah azza wa jal. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam paraphrases it and he speaks it to the Ummah and that's how we get to know what Allah's message is
this hadith, it has a couple of points, and I want to bring it to your attention. Perhaps you've heard it before you haven't heard it, but I want to explain it in a way where you can relate to it and follow its guidance. Because everything that comes from Allah azza wa jal, no doubt is guidance for mankind. You see, you can read a million books, and you can watch a million documentaries and a million videos. And that's all by human effort. We do research we come with conclusions and we present it to you could be right could be wrong. But what comes from Allah azza wa jal is absolutely correct in every single word of it. And not only that, but it offers guidance. If you are to follow
what is in this hobby, if you will be guided,
you will be guided from among all mankind. And you will be walking upon a street clean path. And the path that you are on would be full of light and you're away from darkness, especially in a day and age where people are in darkness. In the release of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah said, yeah, a baddie in the haram to Volmer Allah NFC was your unto Boehner Kumar Rahman fell out of animal. That's the first part, listen carefully, because this is what Allah wants us to do. Right now, there is nothing more important for you to pay attention to what Allah your Creator, your provider, your Sustainer, the one who caused your life and caused your death and decrease all your
affairs and Mattis, what he said, There is nothing more important than this right now. You're only sitting where you're sitting and you're breathing, and your heart is still beating, and the blood is flowing in your veins and in your arteries. Because Allah has given permission for that to do so. Otherwise, you will not exist and you will not be among us. So you need to appreciate the message of Allah and follow it and pay extra attention to it.
And nobody sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah said, yeah, he baddie my sleeves. This is a direct message from Allah to you, because you are a slave of Allah, and not a slave to society and it's standard. You're a slave to Allah. So follow what Allah is going to say of advice. He said in the haram to Valhalla and FC, Allah said, I made oppression forbidden upon myself.
Was your honor to be in a coma haram and fell out of Aleppo?
and I have made oppression and wrongdoing among you people haram. So do not wrong and oppress one another.
Let me give you an explanation of what this means. The vast majority when they hear this hadith, they say, Oh, it is now haram to oppress another Muslim. So I can't hit another Muslim, I can't insult another Muslim, I can't abuse another Muslim and so on. But let me tell you something before all of this, and that is Allah azza wa jal is saying that oppression
and doing wrong for Allah, it is forbidden. Allah will never ever oppress anyone and he is never unjust. Allah he is fair and wise in everything he does.
And the greatest, the greatest oppression you could do is the oppression and the running against your own self.
That is the greatest type of oppression you could do to wrong yourself. So every sin that you commit,
and every disobedience that you commit, and every transgression and your rebellion against Allah and His laws, you are running yourself, you are harming no one but yourself. That's what you're supposed to know. That is the greatest form of oppression, to run and harm yourself. Every haram you do, don't ever ever think that you harm Allah with or harm someone else with it. You are harming your own self.
And Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the last day that I've never looked at fee can be looked at and so that when the sleeve does wrong, when you commit something haram am Allah azza wa jal knows exactly what you're doing.
And the sins of today are plenty and they are many. And they are easy, and they are accessible unlike ever before. Today, the sins are found in this before you used to go out of your way to look for a sin. Today, the sins are here, they are all here.
Very easy. Before you had to look up to see a sin on a billboard, of nudity and adult content and so on. Today, you just have to drop your head down and everything is on your phone. You can be wherever you want. Every single sin that a person commits, is a black dot inscribed on his heart, your heart, you're harming yourself,
would you take a textile now and put dots on your white coat and just keep dotting every seam you commit is a black.on your white heart, you wouldn't do that to cloth. Get if you haven't got a textile and scribbled on your cloth, it'd be much easier, then bringing these black dots onto your heart. Because on the Day of Judgment, what is judged is your heart not your code.
That's what would be judged.
Every sin is a black dot. And I tell you something, anyone who has access to internet these days, you need to treat it like a loaded weapon.
Anything that you have of devices, an iPad, an iPhone, anything that is technology,
a laptop or a PC that has internet connection, you have to treat it like a loaded weapon.
In which if you use for something haram, you are actually shooting your own self.
That's what essentially you're doing. Not physically but spiritually. You shoot your own heart, and you're putting a black.on it that's how you have to treat all these means of Hello. You need to be extra careful. And you need to remember Allah's word in this hadith. Allah said that he has made wrongdoing prohibited upon himself. If Allah doesn't do wrong,
then he has made the same thing upon mankind. He forbid upon you to wrong yourselves.
So you need to be very careful when it comes to sins.
You might from time to time, slip and fall into committing a sin. And I tell you, especially the young youth that have social media, right, and I can assume that the vast majority of you here have social media on your phones. You open the social media, and it's not long before you see something haram before
You click onto her profile and go in and slide picture of the picture.
All from reel to reel, or from one shot to the other. Each and every single gland style Hara, you are hurting your heart. And this will have major consequences.
Every sin you commit weakens the body. It actually weakens the body. It depletes your energy.
People spend hours and hours on Al haram on their phone.
They sleep very late at night, because he was busy sinning against Allah for most of the night, wakes up the next morning, depleted of energy,
can't focus in his studies, can't learn, can't memorize fuels frustrated, feel stressed and upset, hates himself. These are all consequences of sins that you need to be careful of. And so in the beast, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, when a person commits a sin, he puts a black.on his heart for in who a tab su clinical boohoo, there is a chance there is hope. Don't think that your life is dark and gloomy as I have described from the very beginning. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if the slave of Allah wakes up to himself, and snaps out of Al haram, and gets rid of it, and makes a Toba genuinely turns to Allah and says, Oh Allah, I've wronged myself. I am a weak human being. I did
that which is wrong. I did that which is displeasing to
God, I did something displeasing to you in order to please my body and my own eyes.
And I feel embarrassed and wrong about doing so. My Lord, please forgive me.
If that's what you do after every sin, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives you good news. He says, Sue Taylor can Boohoo. His heart becomes polished and pure once again. So he's cleaned. This is like someone that really carries his heart. And he gives it its worth and its value. You see your heart is a black.on it, wash it, wash it away. You know, today, have your phone. If there was a piece of, let's say, some residue of some food came on your phone, you get the cloth, and you wipe it away. Something in the back, you wipe it away. If the screen broke, it's like I had a heart attack. You go to the local store, whatever it is, please squeak, change my screen. I can't live
with seeing it broken. That's the attitude you're supposed to have with your heart. That's the attitude you're supposed to have.
And every sin is damaging the heart. It's breaking the heart. It's weakening the heart. It's blackening it's becoming filthy.
And I said to you on the Day of Judgment, what is presented before Allah is your heart, not your phone and your materialistic matters. The day you die, all that is thrown in the bin.
Today, when people die and they wash them, they take the wallet out of their pocket, they throw it in the bin or give it to the family because Carlos there's no more relevance for him. But your heart goes with you. It's carried on
Allah azza wa jal, he says Yama, Toothless Saraya. On that day, what was in the heart is going to be coming out and this is what he's going to be judged.
Imagine someone that never paid attention to the state of his heart, and didn't care less about his heart and how it is. All he cared about was his clothing, and his phone and his matches that were around him that he owed, and he's stable. That's only counted out and his bag and how it looks and every year I need to buy something new.
This is not the right attitude of a Muslim. Yes, look after your stuff, no problems. But you got to give more importance to the state of your heart. And with every sin you do whether you know it or not, you're damaging yourself. The purpose of life is to follow Allah's rules and commands this the purpose of life, and then came to marry sallallahu alayhi wa sallam setting out a sunnah Allah, if I pray my five daily prayers and I deem what's lawful, lawful meaning whatever Allah said is halal and an obligation I follow that well haram to haram. And I condemn everything that is unlawful mean everything that Allah said is haram. I keep away from it. This man said and I don't add anything to
this. I just pray five prayers. I do the obligations. I keep away from what's haram and what's prohibited.
At the full agenda. Am I going to enter the paradise
And he said that I don't add nothing to this I don't want anything extra. Just this. The be some Allahu Allah you are seldom said to him now yes, you will enter the Paradise because that's the purpose of life. The purpose of life is that you live on Allah's Earth and there are rules to follow. Like you walk into school, right? Why are you all dressed like that? Why you're all dressed the same. That's the school policy. I need to follow it.
You tried to go against school policy, you're removed from school.
But in the larger scale of things, because school is not everything. A few years you'll finish you'll come out. School is not everything you will come out. There are laws of Allah to be followed. That needs to be followed more than any policy in your life.
And Allah azza wa jal has made things obligatory that you're supposed to commit to. And he's mean things that are haram that you have to keep away from.
You have to put extra effort in keeping away from that which distracts you relationship with Allah azza wa jal.
If your phone is causing you a lot of trouble and a lot of sins. Wala he was no exaggeration. It is worth throwing it in the bin to save your Eman and your relationship with Allah. Which bill will be the only thing that's judged on the day of judgment? He needs to be very careful with the state of your heart and how it is.
And I tell you something else.
That Hadith that I began with Allah said he made oppression and wrongdoing, prohibited upon himself and he vie the oppression amongst you people haram. So Do not oppress others and yourself. We said that committing sins, you are harming yourself. You're harming yourself, your heart, you will face consequences for this in this life, in the grief in the afterlife. Perhaps there's something that you want in this life that's been deprived of you because of your sin, as in the beast, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, that could be the case. Okay? But even worse than this, is when you commit a sin. And then you feel the urge to invite and encourage others to do it. That's even far worse. That
is the behavior of abuse. Anyone who commits a sin
and then feels the need to share it with others. So takes a sip from the vape and then tells his friend he'll try it with me
or see something haram on his phone and then shares her profile to a friend of yours
or takes a picture of something haram and sends it to his friend and on WhatsApp groups. See that you're encouraging others to and haram. You are doing exactly what a police does. Because I tell you, when a police disobey Allah has commanded and he did not make a search that to Adam, you know, what have you said? Allah azza wa jal said we're in LA collana te laomi Deen, you will have my curse for the rest of your life. When Allah cursed, I believe so does that mean? It means he removed him from his mercy? So at least doesn't enjoy Allah's Mercy anymore.
When Allah said that team IBLEES sector Allah forbid is ethical, oh, we are no homage nine.
He said to him, I swear to God by your mind, I am going to deceive them all. Meaning what? Meaning at least to kind of himself that I'm going to encourage them all to sin and rebelled and disobey. So when you do something haram and then you find this urge and need to share it with others, you're harming your Muslim friend and you're doing exactly what a police does. Now you're in trouble. You did the haram. You invited someone else who sin now
really, is that the state you want to find yourself in on the Day of Judgment?
Carrying your own sins and then carrying someone else's sins on your back and walking to Allah Who is that? What an embarrassing site for it to be?
And that's I'm telling you about someone that is careless and doesn't turn to Allah in repentance.
I tell you something, if you're not careful about the matter of sins and unlawful malice, from the very start of your life now when you're young ages, this matter is only going to grow and bring you into a lot of trouble later on. I'll tell you something. Today.
There's a lot of criminals out there. Some huge big names criminals you've heard of this gang and this gang and these gangster murders shooting corruption, money stealing armed robberies, right stabbing one another. All of this you're aware
have big names in prison, doing many E's, doing life, drugs and selling drugs and making money and then eventually getting killed. You know, all these people, you know all these people, they will all like you and they,
they all sat where you are. They were quiet, humble students. They were learning, they were going back home, enjoy time with their parents came to school, learned and so on. But what happened to him
because from the very beginning, they were not careful when they began to commit the sins and to encourage one another upon them. That was their problem. They never stopped from the beginning. They would commit a sin until it became normal in their life, then would get onto another sin until it became normal in their life, and kept moving from one to another until they became huge criminals.
So the advice is, when you find yourself addicted to a sim, make sure and make sure you understand that from the greatest goals in your life is to see how to break free from the sin and how to cut it from your life. You need to be very careful. Is it a friend that is inviting you and pulling into the sink? Cut him cut him from your life, so worth it? Is it social media that is dragging you into addiction, cut it from your life and it's worth it? And this was the advice of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I tell you something, every single effort that you put into yourself to keep away from a sin.
This is a point of event for you. And this is a good before you. And this is you implementing a Taqwa. Right, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says it stuck in my head in the corner. But unless I tell you something, if you put in a lot of effort to keep away from a sin, that would be much better and more rewarding for you. Then spending an entire night praying the night or fasting a complete voluntary day. You know why? Because keeping away from a sin is obligatory and praying the mind is voluntary.
And performing the obligations takes precedence over doing that which is recommended.
So it's the first point in the Hadith. Find out of Allah mu. So be careful of this. If you wanted Allah subhanahu wata Ana's blessing and mercy in your life, you need to fight and struggle against yourself to keep away from an haram and if you fell into anything, anything of the soul to immediately turn to Allah acknowledge your sin in your state and seek forgiveness for it. Then in the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this is still Allah's message, he said, Yeah, I barely couldn't look on ball loony lemon habito first duniya decom
my brother's here. Listen to this point. Allah azza wa jal said, All of you are misguided, except who I have chosen to guide. So seek my guidance and I will guide you.
Listen to this very carefully. Allah said all of you are misguided, especially in this day and age. There is a lot of misguidance today. This is a day and age of science, research, technology.
There's a lot of information out there. This is a day and age of fabricated ideologies.
Atheism, feminism, liberalism, LGB groups that are all over the place. There's a lot of misguidance today,
an incredible amount of misguidance
Allah azza wa jal, he said, All of you are misguided,
except those who have chosen to guide 11 haveto.
So what are we supposed to do? Firstly, Dooney seek your guidance from Allah assertion.
The Muslim it is incumbent upon him, especially in these times, to always turn to Allah and ask Him for guidance.
Every single day, at least we are asking Allah 17 times a day for guidance. That's in our prayers when we say do not set up almost the team for Dooney seek my guidance. And the greatest source of guidance is in the word of Allah azza wa jal, the Quran because the Quran is a book of guidance. It guides whenever you're confused about a matter because later on you'll finish you'll go to university that's where
The breeding grounds of disbelief is and it will affect you. And if you don't have a shield with you, to protect you from all this disbelief in all this misguidance you will fall victim to it. And the greatest shield that you can have against the misguidance and corruption is the word of Allah the Quran. This is why I was impressed on hamdulillah to hear from your teachers, that they have redeveloped the way they are teaching Quran and Islamic Studies in the School. And from the main things they are focusing on is teaching the meaning of the Quran, which is very crucial, extremely important, because it's only through the meaning of the Quran, that you will know what Allah's
guidance is for you, and you will remain steadfast and know what's misguidance and what's guidance and you'll know what to follow. This is very important. Allah azza wa jal, he said first Dooney seek my guidance. And I will guide you decon. Right?
And then at the end of the Hadith, and I bring this as a final point to your attention. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam boys here if you can give me five minutes of your time in sha Allah. And then I'll conclude Bismillah at the end of the Hadith interview, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said,
In nama here, amen. See Allah come from our fee, Camilla, Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, he said that Allah said, it is your deeds that you do. You see every good deed that you do, it's yours, you own it, you will benefit from it. No one else. Allah azza wa jal only collects and records it for you. And then he will pay you in full on the Day of Judgment.
I only give you a story of an old man used to work for a construction company. Listen to this.
There was an old man, he worked for a construction company. He used to build homes and so on. He got old, and he wants to retire now. So he said to his boss, I want to retire, I can no longer build anymore. I want to go back to my family and live among my family and relatives.
So they said to him, okay, no problems, we'll accept your resignation. But you have to build one more house for our company, one mole, and then go. He said, okay, no problems. She's very excited. He quickly built this house. He's using their resources, their cement their bricks, and he finished quickly. And he said to them, finally I'm done. Here's the form, take it, I'm resigning.
They said to him, okay, no problems, but we just have a gift for you. So they put him into the office. And they said to him, you see this house that you built, take the key. And this is your house. That's our gift to you. And so this man begins to slap his head and his face in regret.
I should have taken my time, I should have built a dream house that I have always vision for myself. Right? I wish I had taken my time. But alas, it's too late. The ID the point of the story is that you will be surprised and shocked to find out that on the Day of Judgment, all the obedience of Allah, and all your righteous deeds are going to be packaged in a box and given to you here. This is yours. So how do you want to see your reward on the Day of Judgment, every prayer that you rushed through, and every prayer that you abandoned, and every sin that you did, and every obligation that you left out, or you did halfway thinking thinking that you're benefiting someone,
you will be disappointed to see that you're the one that ruined your own reward. Allah azza wa jal doesn't benefit from your good and he's not harmed by your sin. Every good you do, you'll see it on the day of judgment and you're rewarded for it. It goes to no one but you. How do you want to build your reward on the Day of Judgment? How do you want it to be? That's why you need to understand, especially a solid should be the greatest focus in your life, and that you conducted correctly in order to design and fix your reward on the Day of Judgment. This is very important. And I say to all that, you know, I know all young kids, yeah, you all have big dreams. All of you want to own a lot
of money. You all want a good new car, you all want to travel, you want to do a lot of things in your life. You want a lot of success. You want to open a business, you think of this and you think of that. But I tell you something, all that which you are dreaming of will only come to you in a manner that is pleasing to Allah, if you'd be different to things in your life. That is the prayer and the Quran.
These two friends you need in your life and Quran are solid. If you look after your Quran seriously, and you read a small portion a day, and you try to memorize what you can and understand what you can and implement from this Quran what Allah has said. And if you pray your prayers, in a manner pleasing to Allah, keep these two as your friends, be vanilla, anything that you wished for and wanted. If it is good for you, Allah azza wa jal will grant it to, and there'll be great baraka and great blessing within this, my brothers and sisters in Islam. At the end of this talk, I ask Allah assertion
that he accept from us all and he bestow his mercy and his blessing and forgiveness upon us all. We ask Allah assertion that he keeps our firm our hearts firm upon La ilaha illallah wa ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he continued to guide us to the straight path a path that is pleasing to Him in only a vertical body rally or SallAllahu wasallam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad while he or Sophia Germaine, which is called Allahu Pharaoh
