00:01:41--> 00:01:42


00:01:43--> 00:01:44

my brothers in Islam.

00:01:47--> 00:01:54

You all know that Allah subhanho wa Taala created us for a purpose. If you don't know you should know.

00:01:55--> 00:02:52

If you look around you, everything around you is made for a purpose. See this microphone, its purpose is to take myself and then to amplify the noise so that you can hear me the chair you're sitting on, when it was made. In the factory, it was made for the purpose so that you can sit on it, write your code, when it was made, it was made for a purpose so that you can wear it and it covers you. Every single thing in life, look up and look down and left and right was manufactured for a purpose, everything. And so it only makes logical sense that you were created for a purpose as well as a purpose for your existence. We're not on earth, to just figure out why we're here. What do we

00:02:52--> 00:03:01

do? Should we just eat sleep, drink, play, come to school study, and then we die. And then it's the life is over? And then what's after that

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

there is a greater purpose for why you are created.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

Allah azza wa jal in the Quran, he mentioned to us what our purpose is.

00:03:14--> 00:03:20

And of course, Allah azza wa jal is our Creator. He's the One who created you, he put you together.

00:03:21--> 00:03:48

You see your eyes, and your heart that is beating right now. It is only beating because Allah is giving it permission. What's the difference between you sitting now still alive and someone that has passed away? The difference is that Allah continues to give you a heartbeat and continues to give you a life. And the other person, Allah azza wa jal has decreed his time's up, so his soul was taken away.

00:03:49--> 00:04:04

So we need to listen and pay extra attention to what our Creator is saying. He's the one who made us. And he's the one who will tell us what our purpose is. You see this microphone? If I didn't know how to use it?

00:04:05--> 00:04:14

Where do I go to seek information on how to use the manual, the user, the user book, you'll open to use a book, it'll teach you how to use this.

00:04:16--> 00:05:00

If I didn't know how to use a computer, where do I go? There should be a booklet there should be a manual that teaches me how to use the computer. And I'll go to that. So now you human being have finally been formed. You've come out of your mother, and you've grown many years, until you're aware you are now you're aware. You can listen to what I'm saying. And you can understand what I'm saying. So on Earth, now you have a purpose in life to discover what is my purpose? And our user manual is the Quran, the word of Allah azza wa jal within the Quran, we're going to find what our purpose is. Allah azza wa jal, he said, wonderful luck to Gina

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

will insert the Abu dune. I did not create Jin kind of mankind except that the worship me. That is the purpose of life. You are only created to worship Allah. Your heart was created only to worship Allah and no one else. What does that mean? Meaning you have to worship Allah in how you talk. So you can only speak what Allah wants you to speak. And you have to keep away from that which Allah said, don't speak, such as swearing, and lying and backbiting and gossiping, and mocking others and insulting others, all of that in the walls of Allah. Allah said, Keep away from that.

00:05:48--> 00:05:59

Use your tongue only for that which is pure and good. That's the purpose. So we worship Allah in the way we talk. And did you know it Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:06:00--> 00:06:49

the Pure Word, the good word you speak is a sadaqa for you. It's a charity for you. You know, when we say charity, often people think I need to put my hands in my pocket, take out some money, and put it in the box. And now on my own kid, I'm not working out of money. I can't do this deed. Don't limit the idea of charity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that a good word you say is a charity. It's a good deed in your skill. Every good word and kind word you say to your students, to your, to your friends, to your teachers, to your parents, to your brothers and sisters, to people generally to mankind, every good word you speak on. I don't think it goes unnoticed. Allah

00:06:49--> 00:07:37

azza wa jal, he would record for you a good deed. And these good deeds will become the size of mountains on the Day of Judgment, which is what you and I will meet on that day. So we are created to worship Allah, we worship Allah in the way we talk. We worship Allah also in the way we dress. So the human being is supposed to dress in a way he needs to cover his private parts. And that is from the navel all the way until the knee that is supposed to be covered. Because we're walking on Allah's land. And we need to abide by the rules and the laws of Allah azza wa jal. Remember, you are created to worship Allah. Now don't look at each other and see some people are not wearing up until

00:07:37--> 00:08:11

their knee and above the knees, expose the tribe. We're teaching each other. And we're not pointing fingers at others, right? We are educating and we are teaching. So we need to worship Allah in the way we dress. So you go back home, take a deep look into the matter. Look into your closet and what you have is things that are pleasing to Allah azza wa jal keep them and wear them. Things that are not allowed to start working on removing them from your life. Because you need to worship Allah on earth, to attain the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal.

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

We worship Allah in what we eat. So the Muslim,

00:08:17--> 00:08:27

all foods are permissible, except the few things that are impermissible. And everything that Allah saw shall meet forbidden is actually harmful to us anyway.

00:08:28--> 00:08:39

You wouldn't want to come near it. Everything that is prohibited in Islam is actually harmful to you. You only harm your own self.

00:08:41--> 00:09:02

So this is how we worship Allah in how we talk in how we dress, in what we eat, in what we drink, in how we speak to others in how we sleep. And when we wake up. The Muslim sleeps at night, that's the recommendation. And then by Fisher time, he has to get up. He has to get up and make mobile and pretty solid and

00:09:04--> 00:09:28

this is what it means in the true sense of worshipping Allah. And that's your purpose in life. That's exactly what you are created for. When you do what you are created for you will find a lot of success and blessing in your life. And the more you move away from your purpose, you will find a lot of misery and unsuccess in your life. I'll give you an example. You see this microphone.

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

Its purpose is for me to talk in it.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

If I continue to do that which it was made for it will serve me for a very long time right? And it will stay in perfect shape. But let's say I use this for other than its purpose. Let's say I use it as a hammer. You know the the judge when he wants to hit onto the onto the table. Imagine I used it for that. After two months it will be destroyed. You cannot use it anymore. Why? Because I used it for

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

And then what it was made for. The human being is like that. If you use yourself, for what you were made for, if you use your tongue, and your eyes and your stomach by eating, and waking up at the times, Allah wants you to get up, then you will have an optimal Jonnie, excellent life, a successful life, a life of blessing, a life of goodness, a life of peace and tranquility. This is the very thing, same thing people are running after today.

00:10:33--> 00:10:48

Everyone wants success. Everyone wants money. Everyone wants happiness. Everyone wants all these good matters in life. You want them there in the hands of Allah, all of it is from him. So how can you want it and keep far away from him?

00:10:50--> 00:11:02

So that's the ID. And if you use your body, for other than it was made for, then you're going to become disturbed, the heart will become unsettled, because you're doing something you are not created for.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

Imagine, for example,

00:11:06--> 00:11:58

we know that Allah azza wa jal forbids for the men to look at adult content. You know, everyone's got a mobile phone. This year is a big sickness today. The social media is a big disease, huge. And any one of you that has Snapchat, or Instagram, or Tiktok, or whatever it is, yeah, I mean, without even searching for the Haram content, it's already there. And the shaytaan reels you from one content to one short to another reel. And by then you've entered into the profile of us flicking through pictures and videos, and just feeding your eyes, this kind of garbage. You see, when you do that, you're hurting yourself. You're doing something you were not created for. Then the heart

00:11:58--> 00:12:23

begins to panic, it's unsettled, then a person begins to desire and haram. Then Allah, the youth, what happens to them with this vote, they haven't at night, thinking that no one can see them, thinking that no one can see them. But of course, Allah from above can see exactly what you're doing, and how you're behaving.

00:12:24--> 00:12:42

And so you continue to engage in this haram content. Until what happens until you lose a lot of the night you haven't slept, because you're busy awake upon al haram, sending text messages, messages back video to sending to video to picture after picture.

00:12:43--> 00:13:30

And then you wake up the next morning, you haven't slept enough and you're sleepy and you're tired, and your energy is depleted. You can't concentrate. You can't understand. You just want to get back home. You want to get back to your addiction. What alive. You see how when you do what you are not greeted for how you begin to disturb yourself, your soul and your heart and your spirit becomes disturbed. Meanwhile, look at another person that obeys Allah. So naturally, a man has a desire for woman. But we have to follow Allah's law. Allah said, Paul will mute me Nina who booming up sorry, him. Tell the believers to lower their gaze, meaning Heather, don't use it for the Hello.

00:13:31--> 00:14:18

When you see something wrong, immediately turn it off. Walk away from it, do something else. Go to the gym, go to football. Talk with your parents, with your siblings move away from this disease before it kills your heart and kills your mind and so move away from it. You know, if you do that, you are doing what you are created for one Llahi you will have a lot more peace and contentment in your heart than the one who is distracted by these addictions. Why? Because he's doing what he was created for. And this other the other guy is doing what he was not created for. You need to understand this point very carefully. What the HELOC tool Gina will insert in Lal Yabu when

00:14:19--> 00:14:25

we were on earth so that we worship Allah azza wa jal in every aspect of life.

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

And I give you an example. Look at Ibrahim alayhis salam. Do you know the Prophet Ibrahim, who among us here is called Ibrahim put their hands up.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Anyone unknown Ibrahim Masha Allah Ibrahim, who else

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

who else is Ibrahim here? We have one Abraham and Abraham you need to pay attention to what I'm saying. Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhi salam is a prophet of Allah. You all have you all heard of this prophet? All of you, who hasn't heard of him, put your hands up. Who hasn't heard of Ibrahim Ali? He's

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

that, put your hands up. Okay, now I'm going to tell you something about Ibrahim. Perhaps you know, but you've never heard in this perspective.

00:15:10--> 00:15:18

Ibrahim is a Muslim. Every prophet was a Muslim. Every Prophet said La Ilaha illa Allah and accepted that Allah must be worshipped.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Ibrahim alayhi salam,

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

Allah azza wa jal tests Him and He reveals certain commands to him. Ibrahim at this time is about 18 years old.

00:15:33--> 00:16:01

And he has his first child in life and that is Marian Allah, His Salem from of course his wife, who was her job of the Allahu anha. So Ibrahim and his wife has yet to have a child called is married. And Ibrahim is 18 years old. And he is so excited and happy and delighted and joyful over the occasion of a child. He's always wanted a kid he's always wanted a child now Allah has given him a child.

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

So he takes this child and not long after Allah subhanahu wa taala reveals to him

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

take your child is married and his mother has a child and go and put them in Makkah you know where my case you know maca

00:16:21--> 00:16:42

maca back then was a valley. There was not a single human being there. No animals, no life. No vegetation. Allah says beware the mighty visa, a valley that's uncultivated. Meaning there's no greenery. There's no trees. There's no fruits. There's nothing zero.

00:16:43--> 00:16:51

Ibrahim, Allah tells him commands him, take the family and put them in that desert.

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

And walk away.

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

Walk away. Go to Jerusalem, go to a Shem towards Syria.

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

So Ibrahim,

00:17:03--> 00:17:14

he's a Muslim, and a Muslim. His purpose in life is to worship Allah. This is a commandment from Allah. You know what he does? He puts his family in this valley.

00:17:15--> 00:17:21

And he puts with them some water and some dates what's left over. And he begins to walk away.

00:17:22--> 00:17:35

As he's walking, look, there's no phones. There's no WhatsApp. You can't update the status and say, Hey, what's up? Where are you is now I'm here and old is good. There's no internet. There's none of this. So he's got no clue what's going to happen. He walks away.

00:17:36--> 00:17:51

As he's walking away. His wife has your calls out. Yeah, Ibrahim, Allah Who? America we have that? Ibrahim? Did your Lord command you to do this? He walks away he doesn't answer.

00:17:53--> 00:18:07

She comes again did did Allah commanded to do this? He keeps walking away. He doesn't answer. He's almost out of sight. She cannot see him anymore. She screams out one more time. Ibrahim, Allah Who?

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

Did Allah commanded to do this?

00:18:14--> 00:18:23

Here? He doesn't even look back to say yes. As he's walking, he says yes. And in another narration, he just nods his head.

00:18:24--> 00:19:10

Here, the scholars, they see something that he didn't turn his head back to see his family. Because if he turned his head back and saw them, he would have felt sorry for them. He would have seen them. Look at that young kid. He's just born, he's crying. That's his mother's. He's just given birth. He would have felt bad. And maybe he would have disobeyed Allah's command. And he would have walked back to them. So he didn't look back. He kept walking. Ibrahim did not even say Oh Allah, what's the point of this command? Why are you telling me to leave the family and walk away? Why? What's the point behind this? What's the logic behind it? He didn't say this. Because Ibrahim knows what comes

00:19:10--> 00:19:42

from Allah is the truth. And since I no Muslim I have to worship Allah and obey Him. And I don't care what the wisdom behind that is. What the reason behind that is, that's the Muslims life. Like now, when I say to Allah has commanded you to pray five prayers, the new pre five prayers if you're a Muslim, cos I don't care why, who how? What's going on? Pre the five like Ibrahim Ali has sent me all the way Boy, that's what he did.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

And he walked away and Herschel when he walked away, she said is a lineable Jana. She said oh great. If Allah commanded you to leave us here, that means Allah will not abandon us.

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

he'll look after us.

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

So here's your she's now looking for water. And her baby is on the floor crying.

00:20:09--> 00:20:19

And there's no sheet there's no trees. And that part of the old is very, very hot. So what she does is she goes up to a mountain called Asafa

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

sha Allah, Allah azza wa jal will give you that opportunity to do our Amara and Hashem your life, and you'll see what I'm talking about. with your own eyes, you'll experience this. She goes up on the sandy mountain. This is a woman that's just given birth, Ghana, you know how difficult it is, you know, perhaps you've seen after your mother has given birth, how she comes home, very tired, sitting on the couch most of the day because she's still recovering. Very difficult time. Even now, even now, if a woman was working and she gave birth, they give her something called maternity leave. Meaning she can leave work for about 10 weeks before she goes back to work. Because there is pain

00:21:03--> 00:21:17

and fatigue illness. Even Allah will say a woman that has given birth shouldn't pray. She can leave solid for up to 40 days, no problems. She doesn't have to pray. You know, the one who leaves a solid in Islam is a careful,

00:21:18--> 00:22:08

she can leave Salah no problems. But look at this woman in the story. There is no break. So she goes up the mountain. And she cannot find anyone no life, no food, no water. So she comes down and she walks to the other mountain allawah and then back to our Safa and Marwa seven times, and the mountain was huge. And to get up, you know how difficult it is to walk on sand. Imagine climbing up a sand hill, and she couldn't find any life. And this is a mother and her baby is crying. And she's panicking and she's worried. But she knows that Allah Who will look after them. Moments later Allah who had sinned Gibreel alayhi salam and he taps one of his wings onto the earth and that's when the

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

water of zamzam

00:22:10--> 00:22:57

gushes out of the earth. Have you heard of zum zum before? That's the story of zamzam. That's how Allah looked after her. That's Allah's help for those who submit to His command and obey Him with no question. That zum zum is still there up until this very day, so that when we drink of it, we remember the story and we say Oh Allah, in the same manner, you give relief to this family, when there was no hope for them. They were about to die. Oh Allah give me relief. Give me relief in my life, from the pains and difficulties that I go through. Could be anything, could be your studies. It could be just your life in general whatever ideas, you see that you see the single power in that

00:22:57--> 00:23:18

you see how Allah looked after a family because they decided to obey His command. Wallah. He is every goodness in obeying Allah's command. Wallah you don't lose out on anything. When you obey your most command, you don't lose out on anything. If Allah tells you keep away from an haram keep away from it.

00:23:19--> 00:23:24

Allah tells you keep away from smoking, keep away from it. From vaping keep away from it.

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

Keep away from adult content, keep away from it.

00:23:30--> 00:23:37

It's good for you. It is healthy for you. You will go strong in your email, your personality become strong.

00:23:39--> 00:23:52

People that spend their nights smoking, shisha, Gira vaping, woman, dogs, all these kinds of life Wallahi they are weak. The personality is weak.

00:23:53--> 00:24:04

Their personality is very, very weak to the earth. How are these people a benefit to others? He comes on earth and he comes out and he will die he will die.

00:24:05--> 00:24:14

And what does he benefit? What does he benefit? What law he the first night in the grief? You will wake up to yourself but it's too late. It's too late.

00:24:16--> 00:24:18

Cut out the bad habits Be a man.

00:24:19--> 00:24:26

A Papa man is the one who cuts out sins from his life. She's someone who smoking.

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

Have you seen the look on it? Allah person looks shocking when he does this.

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

Or someone sitting in his bed under his blanket.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

What do you go out and watch this in front of your mother?

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

What are you scared of?

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

You know it's filth. You know it's garbage. It weakens your character. It weakens your personality. And you My brothers are the young Muslims. You're the future of this ummah. You're the future of the generations.

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

You have a monster young, you're at this age. This is an age of knowledge. This is an age to learn. This is an age to work.

00:25:09--> 00:25:25

This is the age to do what pleases Allah. No don't have this idea of later later on. I know my dad and my grandfather because they started praying when they were 5060 years old. That's when they went to her shell. So I've got to do the same thing. No, at that age, you can't even hold your loot for an hour.

00:25:27--> 00:25:35

You can't memorize that, that age. Your eyesight becomes very weak. You can't even read the Quran. Now is the time to work not later now.

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

That's why in Nevis Allahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:25:41--> 00:25:46

that there are seven types of people that Allah puts under the sheath on the day of judgment under his shade.

00:25:47--> 00:25:57

And he said shabu, Nisha Futaba. Tila, a young man, a young woman. That was no cheat upon the deen of Allah from the very beginning.

00:25:58--> 00:26:42

Allah He my brothers, I was a student in school just like you. I went to Malik Fahad, what hamdulillah from the very beginning, my dad taught us Islam from the very beginning. My dad was a chef, he went to Medina, he graduated, he studied, and he taught us manners and Islam in the house. And I used to go to school. And I used to have Islam with me. I used to be concerned for Salette anyone he invited me to do something haram, I'd say don't be silly, right? They wanted to do silly things on the teacher's desk, draw silly things on the board. What's wrong? What's good in that? Where's the goodness in this wake up? Look some symptoms to your mind. I had this from the very

00:26:42--> 00:26:43


00:26:44--> 00:27:14

Because perhaps my parents had a great influence from the beginning. But you're not missing out on anything. Don't say Oh, my parents are not like that. My parents are last Osland Danny, that are pray that don't do whatever it is. That's why I am how I am. Don't think like that. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us that his father is in the fire. And his mother died the disbeliever. And how come he turned out who he is, you can't use this excuse that my parents are on, therefore I'm ruined.

00:27:16--> 00:27:23

And most of the companions, their parents were against the deal. But these companions were strong with their Islam.

00:27:24--> 00:28:08

Wallahi my brothers wake up. And understand. There is a lot of potential in you. This is the time to start working, do deeds, fast. If you can give sadaqa whenever you can. Don't worry about going broke, you'll never go broke. Allah promised the one who gives Allahu give him look after each other, have good manners with each other. Speak respectfully to others. This is going to start shaping your personality. So that when you get out to the real life, not only in school, but when you're outside, and then you're seeking to get married, and you're seeking a better life and children and to teach them. You have been backup in your heart. And that's because Islam inspired

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

you and motivated you and empowered you.

00:28:12--> 00:28:40

Don't be weak, Don't be weak. And since all be cause for weakness, fight the sins though I dare you, I challenge you. That's where manhood is. I challenge you. That addiction you have in life, I challenge you to knock it kill that, that addiction in your life. Surely, that's where true strength is. That true strength is not to run to the HELOC.

00:28:44--> 00:28:47

To cut it out of your life is where manhood is.

00:28:48--> 00:29:06

That's the idea of what a Muslim is. That's the challenge in life. You see in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam A man came to him. He said to him, O Messenger of Allah. If I prayed the five daily prayers, and I do what's permissible, and I keep away from what's haram, do I enter the paradise?

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

You know what, maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, by the way, this man added something. He says no, I don't add anything to this. I don't add anything. I just want to pray my five prayers on time. And I'll do what

00:29:21--> 00:29:33

commanded. And I'll keep away from what's Haram as best as I can. And that's it. I don't want to do anything else. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, yes, of course. You're meant to the paradise.

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

You see that? That's the ID. That's that's the purpose of life. That's what it is. Look how simple it is. Yanni reflecting back on the story of Ibrahim, Allah azza wa jal doesn't want you to leave your family and go away. He didn't command you to do that. Don't worry, because that's difficult. He just told you there's a dress code just dress properly cover the whole other tip. Eat what's Halal keep away from what's haram.

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

Smoking is considered consuming something haram. So keep away from that.

00:30:05--> 00:30:21

Get up and pre your prayers on time. Drink what's halal and avoid alcohol and that which intoxicates of drugs and so on your champion, how's your champion walking on Earth, you are doing what you are created for, which is your purpose.

00:30:22--> 00:30:35

And once you become like that, naturally you become an inspiration to others. You begin to teach others what's good. People start listening, people start learning. That's the point of life. That's the purpose of life.

00:30:36--> 00:31:20

So this is my short message to you. I don't want to take much longer than that. I really appreciate your attentive listening. And insofar as you have been the best school I have attended, masha Allah, may Allah azza wa jal bless you all. And don't think that I'm talking looking down at you. Literally, I am because you're sitting down. But from a from a spiritual perspective, I don't look down on anyone. I actually believe that perhaps there are people in here they are way better than me for sure, no doubt. But this is a reminder and advice that we must finish them give to each other. Because if we don't talk and highlight these problems that we are facing in life, who's going to

00:31:20--> 00:31:36

give you advice on them? Who's going to give you advice? No one will give you advice. So that's what we are for. And finally, finally, my advice is this to you three things, three things as young boys what you should do. Number one, attend al Masjid regularly.

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

Attend the masjid regularly.

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

If you can't, for everyday, then at least choose the Saturday Sunday where you don't have school.

00:31:46--> 00:32:25

And go with with your parents to select and Fisher at a masjid. Go that's good. That's manhood. Fight your weakness, which is sleep when asleep? Was it on a pillow? On a comfortable pillow? Get up? Get up. Whatever if the house was was on fire, what would you get? What do you get up if the house was on fire? When you miss selected failure, you're setting up yourself to the whole file. So why didn't you get up if that was the case, of course, to get up for some adventure. Wake up your family. If your parents are not praying, teach them a salad. Someone's got to do something. Don't just sit down all I can't do anything.

00:32:27--> 00:32:33

So find this in your day. At least once a week. Come to the masjid pray. Number two advice.

00:32:34--> 00:32:54

Seek knowledge. You have to learn your Islam. You I can't teach you Islam here. Because Islam is very long for you to learn. You have to put yourself in an Islamic college and learn your deen learn. Every week you attend. You learn the more you learn. The more you love your deen the more you will take it seriously.

00:32:55--> 00:33:34

You don't take your deen seriously when you don't know. You see if you're sitting there thinking wants this guy on about that's because you're still not haven't committed yourself to learning. And above by Allah. If you go and put yourself in an Islamic college and you start learning your deen one week, second week, one month, two months, walla walla he will remember me standing is that guy at a point. So that's upon you. I can't do anything for you. I can only give you advice and direction. Find yourself in Islamic college sit down and start learning about Allah your Creator. So that he can take this matter more seriously in your life because that's the most important thing in

00:33:34--> 00:34:25

your life is to die as a muslim. And number three, the first one was commit yourself to Al Masjid. Number two was seek knowledge. And number three, be around good company. This one's important. Be around good company. When you're around good people. You naturally will be good. Imagine I entered a perfume store. Even if I didn't buy anything. Oh walk out smelling good, right? Because we live in a perfume store. But imagine I walked into a blacksmith where they melt metal and sheet metal and it stinks in there. Imagine I walk in there I don't do anything. Oh they don't walk out. This will be black and I'll stink. That's bad company. That's how it is even if you don't say a word you'll walk

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

out stinky.

00:34:27--> 00:34:58

So be around good company. Be around good company. And that in sha Allah to Allah with these three things. Your Eman will be solid. And you'll be now on a highway to Allah azza wa jal in your faith and in your actions and in your character. And I share with you one last Hadith interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Norbeck Anya measurable Mina share beliefs at Lahore Sabha. Allah azza wa jal is amazed. And he loves the young man

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

who fights

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

is desire. He doesn't have a desire to do the Haram because he's busy doing that which pleases of Allah of the righteous deeds. So use your time wisely you ask Allah azza wa jal to bestow his mercy upon us all. I ask Allah azza wa jal that he bless each and every single one of you, and He grant you success in your life. And I ask Allah that He gives you all that which you want of the halal and to give you more than you request and ask Allah assertion that he spirits his punishment, and the fire of hell and his anger and his curse. And Allah ask Allah assertion that he keeps your own firm upon your five daily prayers and upon the teachings of Islam in harmony with helical karate, or

00:35:43--> 00:35:50

sallahu wa sallam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Germaine Giselle Kamala Hallo

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

wishes. Do you have any practical

00:35:54--> 00:36:10

advice? Maybe just one or two steps as we do if I had a habit with design or they had a habit with their phone? What can they do when they get home tonight to start on the right track? What can they do to sort of move away from those bad habits? If you just choose minutes, one or two things where they could do

00:36:13--> 00:36:13


00:36:18--> 00:36:19

my brothers in Islam

00:36:20--> 00:37:08

any reflect over the story of use of Alayhis Salam, you know Yusuf alayhi, salam, he got caught up in an incident where he was in the palace, and the wife of the king was in the palace with him as well. And this is like a massive distraction. This is the biggest fitna for a man, a woman she had adorned herself. She beautified herself, she fixed herself up and she locked all the doors. Imagine that and it's in a palace. Sounds like it's really locked up. No one can go anyway. And she came to him. And she said to him, and he's a young man. She said theme hate the luck. I am prepared for you. Let's do something haram. The first thing use of Alayhis Salam did to break free from the situation

00:37:09--> 00:37:56

is very tempting situation. He said My Allah, He said Allah, I seek Your protection. I seek your help. The first practical thing to do when you're thinking of something haram or coming to something haram stop and say below him in a SharePoint regime. keep seeing it, see it now. See this, I have a discussion with yourself. See, I mean, yeah, Allah can see me Allah, he seen me know, Allah Bismillah Allahu Belaire. Say it now. You'll find yourself that what is inside of you, bothering you tempting you to do the sin will just die. It will just die. Don't suppress that feeling of Allah. He's watching. A lot of people when they are committed to Al haram, they have the desire. He's

00:37:56--> 00:38:39

approaching. He's going to do the haram. Who will he knows Allah he's watching. But what does he do he start to put them on the site halala or think of a leader or think of Allah watching the leader leaning in and he kills that feeling altogether. That's no good. As you're sitting there, approaching the Haram say our villa ministry upon your regime. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Say Allah, Allah is watching. Say it aloud. It's only a movement of the tongue. It's going to take a lot of muscle from you. Not a lot of effort. What Allah he try it, see what's going to happen. The word Allah, if it's mentioned on the tongue, nothing can outweigh it. So if you had a skill, and you had

00:38:39--> 00:39:17

your sin on one side of the scale, and you had the word Allah on the other side, then the word Allah is going to outweigh the sin and the sin is going to fly away from your heart. It's just moments. And the second thing you do after you say, Allah, you know what you do the second thing, exactly what you said, when you sue for standing in front of this woman, Alayhis Salam, he said, My Allah, He said, I seek Allah's protection. The second thing he did was step out cold bed. He ran to the door, he ran to the door, meaning the second thing you do run away from the scene, run away from it. Is it your phone, literally fluid? Literally the fluid?

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

The fluid is the is it a PC of iPad in your room, get out of the room just walk out.

00:39:26--> 00:39:37

Walk out it's only two three seconds once you walk out the designs that colors the dice you're not you're not you're not into it anymore. That's all it is. It's only a matter of three to four seconds and you kill it.

00:39:38--> 00:40:00

And you practice this and you keep training yourself on this house. Because look when use of Allah you said I'm rushed to the door. The king had come welfare see the hell out of bed and he opened the door. You know what that means? That means that it's all over. Because the guys at the door Hello, Slava. What can you think of doing haram? Now? That's

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

It that ID if you move away from the Haram Allah who will send you relief straightaway, straight away, relief will come. And you will not be tempted anymore. You try this 125 10 times, it's gone. It's cut out of your life altogether.

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

You got to understand

00:40:18--> 00:40:25

a lesson. Now. Anyone else have a question? That you feel like asking if you have a question come up, come up, ask him.

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

Okay, if no one has a question, now, Tom, what's your question?

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

Morning, guys.

00:40:44--> 00:40:53

Okay, the brother is saying, what about if it's hard for someone to lower his case? That's a good question, bro. 100% It's hard. It was never meant to be easy.

00:40:54--> 00:41:38

If it's heard, that means you're your man. Right? You don't have any sickness in your heart. You're good. You're normal. You're natural. Right? So that's a good sign. That's the first thing. The other thing is you need to identify a no, this is not easy. So in Islam, we are required to do something called Animal shahadah. struggle and strive against ourselves. Brother, getting up at Fisher every day and making Boo Boo is that easy or not bring fish in every morning to rock out is that easy or not? This difficulty, this difficulty. But all this difficulty, all of it. In Islam, we call it survival, you'll be rewarded for it. So now when you say you want to lower your gaze, but I can't.

00:41:38--> 00:42:19

But brother, I'm telling you, if you force it upon yourself, just drop what you have and run away from it. You are earning reward. You are earning her say that at the time. You are practicing something called Sovereign patience. And you're getting rewarded for it. Don't ever ever think that if you look away at how long from your life that Oh, I lost the moment of temptation. Almost a moment of pleasure. I could have pleasured myself I could have been a little bit happy. Don't ever think like that. And maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Man hunmanby see yet in front of me. I'm gonna have cookie Butler who has Santa Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Anyone who was

00:42:19--> 00:42:27

concerned to do haram. He's at the door. But then he holds himself back. Allah who would record for him one good deed.

00:42:29--> 00:43:06

One good deed for one. Because you backed away from an haram. So yes, it's hard. But it comes with its price. Big reward. You got it. And a lot of the companions will sell off they used to say that, as in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said it duckling, Mohammed Intercon, Abba, the nurse, keep away from the Haram, and you will be the most righteous of people. And I'll tell you something, you know, let me give you a quick question, and you answer it for me. If someone spent the entire night from from a shirt time, all the way till fissured, how many hours is that?

00:43:08--> 00:43:18

About nine hours. If someone spent a whole nine hours of preme, Imagineer praying, like the total, we are praying at night, nine hours didn't sleep?

00:43:19--> 00:43:27

Is he better? Or the one who wanted to do a scene that night and he left that? Tell me who's better? And then he went to sleep, which was better?

00:43:29--> 00:43:30

The one who prayed all night?

00:43:33--> 00:43:47

Okay, it's the one who left the scene. I told you why? Because the one who left the sin did an obligation, it was obligatory upon him to leave it. And the one who prayed the night it was only recommended and voluntary.

00:43:48--> 00:44:29

And this guy did what's obligatory, and what's obligatory is more rewarding than what's voluntary. So you see, you see what I'm talking about? The struggle is not going to go cheap. This is going to give you more reward than the one who spent the whole night praying. Now, okay, I have one question. Can we have one more question for them? One more minute. Who can get up here? Come here and give me one thing you benefited from in today's lecture? Yeah, Allah don't be shy. Anyone who benefited one thing I did read probably could be half a sentence. Come up here and give it to your brothers. That could be like $1 and Osaka for you because I told you if you speak a good word you get a reward.

00:44:30--> 00:44:31

Yellow who wants to get up
