still follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam on the Quranic reminders, WhatsApp groups as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I wanted to share with you a reflection this week from a solar thermal solar to Nimal. There is an incredible story at the very beginning of the teachers or something. And that is how the believer should be viewing the Western world. Many, many Muslims are caught up in the advancements of the Muslim world, praising the Western world, loving the Western world, for what they have of knowledge of research, of the medical technology of science, of whatever it is that they have admitted advancements. And this freezing of the Western
world, and attachment to the Western world, and what it's offering the world
develop in a person to the point where a person would lose his entire deen and he would lose the focus. He would lose his focus on Allah subhanahu wata Isla, and he would lose the focus on the purpose of this worldly life and why Allah azza wa jal created us in this worldly life. The western world makes life easier with its technology and advancement and so on. But the Muslims should know that the purpose of this worldly life is not enjoyment.
The purpose of this life is to worship Allah azza wa jal and adhere to His commands and to keep away from his prohibitions. And to attach the word Allah azza wa jal wants you to attach to. And then once we all die in this could be any day when we move to the next life. The next life is meant for enjoyment, complete enjoyment, pleasure and satisfaction. Let me share with you this story from sort of the Nimitz This is the story of the bird of Soloman. Soloman Ali, he said, I'm a prophet of Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal gave him control and authority over animals, including birds from among his army, they were birds. And he spoke the language of the birds he understood the birds or
eliminate month a copy of Allah azza wa jal says, they knew him and his father. They knew how to speak to the birds they understood the bird.
And so one day, Allah azza wa jal, he mentions in salt enamel that the bird had taken off the bird and Hood Hood.
This is the name of the bird the type of the bird it's it's called Al Hood Hood. It took off, it left the army and it moved away from Sulayman Alayhis Salam AMI and where they were.
So Sulaiman Alayhis Salam, Allah azza wa jal says about him or to pay for kala Melia la oral who do the uncanny I mean a lot been so layman Allah you Salam came to the army is doing a general checkup on the army. He's checking the birds, and he says, Why cannot Why can I not see the hood? Where did it go? Has it is it absent isn't present where it is? Where is it? And he threatened he threatened this a hood he said let was the but no more than Shalida I will punish him a severe torment for punishment. Or I might slaughter him. I will let us know. Oh, let the enemy be some funny movie. Or he better come with some huge and great news.
So Allah azza wa jal mentions that the bird long It wasn't long after until the bird had arrived back to Sulaiman and arrived back to the army. And he came the bird came to see a man and he said TMG took him in Sabah in beneva. India team. I have certain great news from Yemen, because this is where the bird ended up going. The bird went to Yemen. By the time at that time, the queen of Yemen Her name was Bill peace. She was a disbeliever at the time, and you can think of like a western world, a disbelieving land a disbelieving country run by a disbelieving
Prime Minister or run by a disbelieving Queen at the time. And these people in Yemen had the advancements in technology and so on. They were developed. So this bird came back and listen to what the bird says to slay man. The bird is not blown away but what he by what he saw among the disbelievers.
It did not praise the bird did not praise what it saw. With the disbelievers and what technology they had an advancement they had listened to what the bird is saying now, this is a bird that went to a disbelieving town disbelieving nation or Western world
and saw what it saw and it came back with this type of news. The Bird said to slay men in new Asia to attend. I found a woman
who whom she is authority over them.
So she's the governor. She controls them. Them Liko what oh, the admin cliche and she's been given of all things. See the advancement. She has a lot of things or the admin cliche from every single thing known to man she had something of it. What a house turned over him and she had a huge throne, meaning this queen was was extremely wealthy.
Then look at the boats. It was a two hour coma. I saw her and her people. Yes. Judoon Ali Shem semen Gunilla. I saw her and her people prostrating to the Sun
and not prostrating to Allah azza wa jal. They are post prostrating to the Sunday a worshipping the sun. They have taken a lord besides Allah azza wa jal, and their Lord is the sun was the yellow homeless shape on armella home. And the devil has decorated the deed.
Meaning these people saw that the sun is something huge. It's been here long before they existed, it'll stay long after they die. It provides us with light and heat and direction and so on. So it must be the Lord shall upon decorated this deed for them for so domani Seville, and as a result, the show upon led them astray from the right path, for whom lay the dune and they are not guided. Then the hood would set alias to doula, why do not why don't they prostrate to Allah azza wa jal
unless you want to drill hover, if it's similar to the one who brings out what is hidden in the heavens in the earth, like the water is hidden from the heavens, and the seeds and them sprouting into grass and trees and so on that's hidden in the earth. Why don't they prostrate to Allah, the One who brings out what is hidden in the heavens in the earth, where Allah momento who no matter Linoone and he also knows, and consistently and every moment he knows that which you conceal in your heart and in your mind, and that which you make apparent on your tongue, and in your actions. Allahu La ilaha illa who are Belarusian of Allah, there is no Lord worthy of worship besides Him, because
He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne. You see this bird, it went to a disbelieving town, it came back, it wasn't blown away and taken by what advancements they wants and what wealth there is.
Rather, it was quick to point out the greatest flaw and the greatest fault that they have. And that is that they worship all beside they worship a sum, besides Allah azza wa jal what benefit is there in owning the entire world and having the latest advancements, yet not having to heat in your heart? What benefit is there? There is absolutely no benefit. So my brothers and sisters in Islam learn from this bird learn.
When you resigned among Westerners among disbelievers is nothing, there's nothing for you to attach yourself to, with what they have, use, use what they have of technology, no problems, you can benefit from it. But you need to understand that the Westerners this is this is all they have in their entire existence. The purpose of life is to is enjoyment. That's it. This is the purpose of life that didn't have a purpose besides this. As for the believer, he must always always always see that the * that the Western world has, the idols they have, the beliefs they have, other than Islam, the corruption they have, the oppression they have. All of this is enough enough to cover all
the good that they have. And so a believer remains steadfast upon his Deen asking Allah azza wa jal to safeguard him and to protect him from that which the West is inventing and calling us to and deceiving us with and tempting us with.
This bird was able to recognize that if if these disbelieving nation didn't have to hate it, they just came back it flew back didn't even want to stay that Subhanallah and this is a bird that saw the goodness that saw the advancement there. But it was not deceived by it.
Subhanallah learn from this bird, be like this bird and wake up every morning and into the evening every night and say lobby to be late here but I am pleased with Allah has my lord what Bill Islami Dina and with Islam as my religion. What do Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Abuja, and I am pleased with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, as my prophet Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever says this word, then paradise is guaranteed for him. Allahu Akbar wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
