As I come along halen for your attendance, we ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from a soul. We ask Allah azza wa jal to bestow his mercy and his forgiveness and His acceptance upon us all, and that he forgive our sins and our shortcomings.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam
tonight's lecture is about the pure heart and colobus Salim
and we're going to discuss what is the pure heart
and the benefit of a pure heart and how does one attain such a heart? But at the very beginning, let me begin by saying that Allah subhanahu wata, Allah created everything around us for a purpose and he created the human being for a purpose. Everything that Allah subhanahu wa taala created, its purpose was mentioned in the Quran. Allah azza wa jal Li said, hola, hola. Hola, hola, cassava Assa T woman, Milan aeternus de lune amaro Boehner Han Lita Alamo and Allah Allah cliche in Kadir what and Allah has a helper we cliche in Elma Allah azza wa jal, he says that it is He Who created the seven heavens, and similar to that of Earth's seven Earth's
and the decree comes down between the heavens and the earth, meaning everything Allah subhanahu wa taala created of the heavens in the earth, and the trees in the mountains and the sand in the oceans, all of this. What was its purpose. He said, Lita, Allahu Allah, Allah cliche in Kadir
its purpose was that you can come to the realization and be aware and acknowledge that Allah has social is capable over all things.
When you see this roof above our head now, and that there are pillars in the corners that support it and carry it. And then you observe the heavens, the sky, as vast as it is as wide as it is. There is no pillars that carry it. Mohammed Bin Talal Allah azza wa jal says,
He lifted this entire sky and he holds it and there are no pillars that are attached from the sky to the earth. Why Lita level one Allah Allah cliche in Cadila, so that you can come to the realization that Allah has social is capable over all things.
What and Allah has got the help of the coalition in a man and of Allah so He can, has encompassed all things in his knowledge, law, social is aware of all matters.
You right now sitting and there's a brother sitting next to you have as a sister sitting next to you what is going on in their heart right now. There is no chance in the world for you to know what it is. However, Allah subhanahu wa taala knows exactly what's in his heart and in her heart, what and Allah has a help of equally che in
that's the purpose for why Allah azza wa jal created everything around us. Everything around us. It refers it points to the fact that Allah is capable over all things. This is the kind of belief anarchy that the believer is supposed to have in his heart throughout his life. We're coming we're coming to the pure heart, but be with me. This is a key that you're supposed to install in your heart
and commit to an ad He formerly taught. And Allah Allah cruelly che in Kadir
The next thing is, then Allah azza wa jal created the human being. What's the purpose for why Allah azza wa jal created the human being? Allah azza wa jal he said in Surah to that yet, well now Haluk to Lenovo and insert it allele Abu doon I did not create mankind and Jin kind except that they worship Me. That's it
If that is the only purpose of the creation of mankind and jinn kind that they worship, Allah has social in everything they do. And in every moment of their life, you worship Allah in the way you eat. You worship Allah him the way you drink. You worship Allah in the way you dress. You worship Allah in the way you talk, you worship Allah. In way you stretch your hands, and your worship Allah azza wa jal by obeying His commands and keeping away from his prohibitions, but you see my brothers and sisters in Islam, the first purpose I mentioned to you and then the second purpose, they are closely related to each other.
You cannot worship Allah. If you do not know Allahu Allah credo che in Kadena.
Therefore the first purpose in life is to know who Allah is. That's the first purpose in life
before it is to worship Allah. The false purpose in life is to know Allah assertion, by His names and attributes, is to know that Allah is capable over all things. How are you going to learn this lesson? Look around you. Look above you. Look beneath you. Look left and right of you. Everything Allah created, refers to the fact that Allah is capable over all things. That's the first purpose in life to recognize Allah azza wa jal.
Then the second purpose is for you now to worship this Lord, that You have come to know who he is. And your worship to Him. Is you being grateful to Allah azza wa jal. This is you being grateful to him after you've recognized him. I give you an example. You know, you all have parents, mothers and fathers. And for those who have passed away we ask Allah azza wa jal to bestow his mercy and forgiveness upon them. Will Islam encourages us all to be dutiful to our parents? We love our parents, we serve our parents, we go out of our way to do things for our parents. We want to see that smile on their face, and we want from them. And no matter what pain you go through, that's
right. These are my parents. Right? This is the attitude we have with our parents. And they are created by Allah to Allah azza wa jal belongs the highest of examples of give you that. But let me ask you something. Why are you good to your parents? Why do you feel the need to serve them and to love them? Why? I tell you why. Because you recognize they are your parents. But this is my mother. This is my father. She carried me for nine months, he provided he went and worked hard, and every dollar he spent it on my education, on my food on my nourishment on my clothing.
I recognize so I am grateful to them for the rest of my life. To Allah belongs the highest of examples. When you recognize who Allah is, when you recognize it, it was Allah azza wa jal who close to and it is Allah social who fed you. And it is Allah azza wa jal, who nurtures you and give you life and causes your death and decrease all your affairs and matters. And it is Allah azza wa jal who guide you and it is Allah azza wa jal, it is him, that you are here tonight.
It is Allah azza wa jal that your limbs are functioning today and you woke up healthy, and you had your well being.
But he's Allah azza wa jal to you compared to your parents to you, nothing, nothing.
And so this is why once you recognize his your Creator, and your Lord, now, you spend the rest of your life being grateful to him.
How? By observing his commands, adhering these commands and keeping away from the prohibitions. This is the purpose of life. Everything around us is so that we recognize Allah has social is one. And then afterwards when we know who he is. We spend the rest of our lives grateful to him. And that is our worship. Our worship is gratitude. In the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam he used to pray a long nights and this is voluntary prayer.
And when I showed up the Allahu anha would say to him,
that Allah azza wa jal has forgiven you while you're praying long nights until his heel would crack and it would bleed. He would say a fella Hakuna. Abdon Shikara Shall I not be a grateful slave? What do we learn from this narration that in the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sang Thai you shall obey Allah Who Anna mine Salat is gratitude to Allah. Yes, I know. Allah azza wa jal has forgiven me. I am praying because I'm grateful to my Lord subhanho wa taala. In your worship is gratitude to Allah azza wa jal
Again, let me say this now that we know the purposes of life,
Allah azza wa jal decreed this matter and decreed what our purpose will be. Then he created us in two parts. He created us as a body, and they
and a soul were created to parts of body and a soul.
Allah subhanho wa Taala created the body of Adam Alayhis Salam first, that is what appeared physically in front of the angels and in front of
iblees when he was still in me paradise.
When he was as a body, it lay there motionless, still wasn't moving, there was no life in it.
Then Allah azza wa jal after some time, he commanded the angels with something special, unique, that had never happened before that, from the time Allah azza wa jal had created everything until Adam Allah He said, Allah azza wa jal commanded the angels and he said to them, for either as a way to who want to feed him or Rohini *a hula who says you Deen Allahu Akbar. Such a huge event that Allah azza wa jal records in the Quran. He says to the angels, once I fashion, and I design Adam Alayhis Salam, and then once I blow the water into him, the soul as soon as it's blown into him, *a Allah Who says you then all of you angels fall into prostration a prostration of respect and
honor the family has set up. And so this mighty scene unfolds in the heavens. Up leveling his Salam would make a sister, she breathed Ali his Salam, the angel who one of his 600 wings covers the entire heavens make decision with solar field, molecular mount Hamilton Ouch. Those who carry the throne, eight of them, one of them and the Beast Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, I've been given permission to share one piece of information about the carrier of the throat. Between his elope to his shoulder is a distance of three fast three days of fast travel. Lower all of these angels making sushi to Adam Alayhis Salam, who's Adam to us our father.
The question is why?
Why were they commanded to make a decision of honor? What honored mankind? I tell you what honored mankind? You answer was that his soul his body?
Most definitely his soul. Because when he was there as a body, no one was commanded to make a search there.
As soon as the soul was put into him, this is when the angels were commanded to make associator If they're not give you and I, our honor, our worth our value is our soul, our soul?
This is what we're supposed to look after the soul. This is what we want to achieve at the end of our life, a pure soul a pure heart that stands before Allah azza wa jal, because this is what gave you honor. But I tell you something my brothers and sisters in Islam, how sad is it today
that the vast majority of mankind focus on their body and neglect their soul? This is evident in the question of people. I'm speaking among us Muslims. The questions that we receive is Botox permissible? Are fillers permissible? What about veneers? Is it permissible hair transplant? Is it permissible? Lifts are they permissible? This is the people's questions about the body.
It's all about the body. Where's the question of teach me a hadith that would purify my soul? Teach me a hadith that brings me closer to Allah azza wa jal
instead of changing your nose, teach me a hadith that will change my character and my personality. Where are these questions that didn't exist? Rarely do they come.
And at the end of the day, when a person dies, his body is taken as it is and it's put into the dirt put into the dirt and closed and the worms chew on it and eat it. And if there's silicone in the body, it's not chewed because the worms don't eat silicone
Subhanallah and the soul is honored doesn't end up there it goes up. Goes up to Allah has social. So there is honor there is worth there is value in it
those in the past
I used to look after the soul.
I give you the story in the example of men have been I've been out slowly Allahu Anhu when he accepted Islam and the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam sent him to a bar if a boy if he's about 60 kilometers from Mecca, and Mecca is about 450 kilometers from El Medina. So from UCLA if all the way to El Medina is a distance of 14 days, one day of men have been able house, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him to apply to lead the Muslims day in prayer and teach them their Deen because they were new. They had no clue how to pray and how to worship. So he was there he was teaching them
and he became distracted in his solid. He said in the shape on on jalapeno Boehner Salette you will be so heavily shaped and began to distract him in a solid. He doesn't know what he's reading. He's mixed between Is this the third or the fourth fourth Raka is this the first or the second is confused? So he gets on his camel and he goes a 14 D traveled to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He gets there he comes down he goes to the Solon muscle Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says a prophet of Allah, a Che Guevara has come between me and my prey. And he's distracting me. What do I do? Nabi? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answers him. He says this is a special show balm for Salah is
Caulkins up. He comes to you when you pray. So if he comes to you when you pray, spittle prayer left three times, wherever you want to pray
and say I will be lay him in a shape or not regime. That's the prophetic solution. He took this piece of information got back on his camel and went all the way to Apollo, if another 14 days
28 days of travel
just so he can look after his soul.
People travel these indies to put a hair in his head.
And those in the past would travel to see how he can get closer to Allah azza wa jal and I'm not saying anything about hair transplants is permissible, no problems. But I'm just looking at the comparison. Because the difference they understood that the only thing that's going to benefit me on the day of judgment is a pure heart a pure soul.
So it's alright it's worth the 28 days of travel to see how can I refine my solid which will purify my heart and my soul?
He said he went back to Akbar if and he began to implement that prophetic solution. He said soon after, Baba Hola, Juan de la sociale got rid of the Shavon who sure came back to me in my solid.
He was hungry for the solution. He wanted to purify his heart and his soul. It came to him.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam,
Allah azza wa jal in the Quran he says your Malayan foul man and whenever noon 11 at Allah Belbin Salim
on the Day of Judgment, no have no children or be of any benefit. And these two were mentioned specifically because they're the most dearest person. Is there anything dear to you than your wife and your children? Nothing. Allah azza wa jal is seeing the most beloved things and closest things to you which is your wife and children will be of absolute no benefit to you on the Day of Judgment.
So Allah what will be of benefit to us 11 At Allah has been Salim, except who presents and comes on the Day of Judgment with a Salim heart with a heart that is pure and cleansed and purified.
With Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam, if you do not learn this lesson, now, you're going to learn it the day you die. Because the day you die, it is when you will most definitely realize that your offer is of no benefit. What's it going to do to you?
In the final moments, when your soul is coming out of your body and departing the soul, the life you will realize that your children have no value of no benefit to you. What can they do? The maximum is hold their hand and pat your hip. That's it. You will realize medicine and science and technology and research and all of it. It's no point what's gonna do your cars, your homes, your businesses, everything you own, your friends and your contacts and your relationships and all of this.
Have no benefit. Learn the lesson now. Because if you don't want Allah He before you leave the worldly life you will learn it.
You will realize that the only thing that is of benefit is your righteous deeds. That's it. He's just gonna go with you into the grief. And it's going to come out with you on the Day of Resurrection, and he's going to be put on the scale is going to follow you wherever you go.
A pure heart, that pure soul, that is what he's going to be of benefit. Allah tells us this is the
Pull out in multiple places. Long story short, he says.
What do you mean merasa Klinikum mean Coppelia yet to
fail coolala Biloela Horton de la shanem Corrib for sadaqa wa Camino Solly him. Allah azza wa jal he says rush into doing good deeds give charity before a day comes before the day comes before the day of death comes in which one of you would say My Lord give me some time? Respond extend my life a little bit more why? Wait, wait, wait, he says for a souped up so I can give a sober club so I keep engaging goodness, I can metal solid Hain seven I may be righteous, so that I may work on my heart and cleanse and purify my soul. Because now I'm realizing there's nothing of benefit to me. The only benefit to me now is a pure heart and a pure soul. But it's too late then. What are your allaahu
Law social will not extend anyone's life if the time has come close, it's too late.
If and we have from now, until the day we die, Allahu Allah when that is in order for us to achieve a pure heart and a pure soul. That's what's going to benefit us. So how do we achieve a pure heart now that I've explained to you the importance of the pure heart and the pure soul? Allah azza wa jal Annalisa Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allah azza wa jal will not look at your shapes
and your images on the Day of Judgment. This Allah azza wa jal does not care about your shape and your image. He doesn't for people, that is a great concern for them in this world, their life. So he's in and out of the gym, and there's no problem, go to the gym every day, but give equal importance to the soul, exercise that soul as well purify it.
But the reality is that on the Day of Judgment, Allah does not look at the image in the shape.
he observes your heart and your actions, that's what's important. Nothing else is important.
How do we achieve that pure heart? Are we ready? Are we ready to stand before Allah azza wa jal,
with a pure heart and a clean heart? Are we ready? Everyone knows himself.
You see, you need to be honest with yourself so that you start working on yourself, the one who lies to himself, that will never upgrade. He will never learn, he will never Excel, he will never be able to purify his art. You need to be honest, my brothers and sisters in Islam, who among us can put his hand and say, I have no hypocrisy in my heart. You can put his hand up and say I'm 100% Certain there is no arrogance in my heart. You can put his hand up and say My heart is white. It's crystal, it's polished.
There is not a.of blackness on it. Who can do that? No one.
You have to be honest with yourself. You can't I'm not here to to make you feel good about yourself. You know, there's plenty of ads and a hadith in the Quran that encourage us to Allah's mercy and His law Manny's forgiveness and we're all in need of that.
But we need to first tap into our hearts. We need to be honest with ourselves, like how vulnerable obey Allah who
humbly walks the streets one day, and he screams out now *a humbly, humbly someone an ethic that was so heavy.
So happy walking the streets of El Medina saying Imam
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu easy. He walks out
a strong brother, while
he says I will work to do it, you realize we are in the presence of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is talking to us. We sit there with humility. Sure.
As though the birds on our heads
the man is pumping, it's erupting. And then we come back to our families and our jobs and our homes. It just dies dies out.
That charge that was with us with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam disappears when we go home. So I'm gonna
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu gets worried Subhan Allah has the same thing that happens with me. Let's go to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Let's go and tell him of our problem.
Let's go before it's too late. We're still alive. Let's go find a solution to purify and cleanse the heart. Let's go. Hurry. Look at the concern for the soul. Look at the concern. Look at the rush.
doesn't have time to waste he knows they only have from now until we die. We gotta get this right. They rushed to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Rasulillah yellow suit Allah The reality is when we're with you getting them Allahu
Allah Eman is pumping birds or like we feel them on our heads from ashore. And when we leave the terrible state
we're gonna be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explains the reality of how Eman works. Not like that. It doesn't work like that. Don't think it's always going to be high and above. He says to them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
If Eman was always high in the heart, the angels the angels would have come and they would have shaken your hands on the streets and in your beds, you would have been angels. That's not the case fluctuates it goes up and down. When it goes down, you need to notice when it went down, and you need to do CPR to your soul, revive emergency state it gets into it, come to the spiritual hospitals and massage it. You need to take advantage of the spiritual spiritual occasions like Rama Bah, that is coming in less than two weeks. Nothing is nothing left to Ramallah.
He's a pitstop.
This is a stop in where you will refresh your heart and purified and cleanse it and come closer and closer to reality. Today, many, many can tell me a lot about the person sitting next to you.
But I'm not interested about the person next to you. Tell me about yourself. Be honest about yourself. Is there any help in your heart or not? Is the arrogance in your heart or not? Is the ego jealousy in your heart or not?
You got to be honest. You need to be like Havanna so that you're able to work with your heart. No, it's low points. It's high points so that you know when you need to revive it is the problem of people today, always complaining about the Eman and we need something and we need to do something. He does nothing. But he knows he needs to do something. Maybe it's because he hasn't been honest with himself.
He hasn't pointed the finger to himself to say I think there's hypocrisy in his heart. I think my heart is black.
I'll personally my brothers and sisters in Islam.
We want to stand before Allah azza wa jal with a pure heart a pure soul. How are we going to do that? I'm going to share with you how.
Let's take an example from the Quran. A doctor man in history, a great prophet from the prophets of Allah has solution that Allah azza wa jal praises him by seeing he had a pure heart
as a role model for tonight,
and that is
Ibrahim alayhis, Salam Lahore, Ibrahim Ali he said in Abu Amir,
Ibrahim Ali, he said, possess the pure heart. And he is verified by Allah azza wa jal, the blue tick is by Allah assertion
doesn't pay any subscription fee for it or anything came from Allah is mentioned in the Quran is the true role model. I tell you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, one of the biggest crisis we have today in our Ummah, is that there's no role models. So role models, who are the role models on Earth? They call them influencers. They're all over social media. who these people who these people, naked men, naked woman, kids, you know, on YouTube, the most followed on YouTube, who is it? You know? I don't know. I just made a search just so I can come bring it to your attention. Someone called Mr. Beast. You might think Allahu Akbar Mr. Beast.
You open the channel isn't like a little kid.
365 million followers.
How many times over the stuff Australia? Australia's what? 25 million. How many times over the
10 2015 Australia's following him.
As the role model keeps
naked men, naked woman, sports stars, dancers, singers.
We had a singer recently here that he came to Melbourne, sold out hundreds of 1000s attending just to listen to His voice and dance a little bit.
It's the role models of the world.
And it's catching the attention of the young Muslims really quick.
And they drowning in this
and then they take from what they see. And they want to create their own profiles and they want to be like them.
This is why the world the vast majority don't have dignity.
They don't have self respect. The vast majority of the world doesn't have dignity and self respect and honor anymore.
Because these are the role models
where we need the role models, you're not going to find anyone better than the role models that are approved by Allah our social
and made mention of in the Quran, and their story is preserved until the end of times, because these role models are not out of date. Ibrahim alayhis salam is not a role model out of date, without dated him. We're in New Times doesn't work like that. Or it is the word of Allah azza wa jal
serves as a guidance for every person from the day it was revealed until the last man to stand on Earth
as the power of the blood
it in fact, the below him Allah is Salam was a role model for our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not commanded to follow a specific path of a prophet except for Ibrahim Allah, you set up the Mau hyena ileka And he told me later if Ibrahima Hanifa woman again, I mean and mushy the key we commanded to you Messenger of Allah, follow the path of Ibrahim, the street path of Ibrahim on that can I mean and we should begin, he had absolutely nothing to do with *
and false beliefs and fake fabricated beliefs. His heart was clean.
It embraced the Oneness of Allah has social let me tell you about Ibrahim. Allah azza wa jal he says in the Quran
we're in dementia Tehila Ibrahim, if Joe oberhalb Albion Salim Maha call
in dementia teehee and from the followers of new Halle, his Sadam is Ibrahim
is the follow the Prophet follow each other.
They learned the towhid of the prophet before and they follow in that path. We're in them in shiatsu healer Ibrahim is a boy who has been silly when he came to his Lord with a pure heart.
This is Allah azza wa jal capturing a movement of Ibrahim in this world the life
is general abou whenever he came to Allah, meaning whenever he beat the commandments of Allah.
Whenever he walked to Allah azza wa jal in the salty life, embracing the commands of Allah. He always did so with a pure heart, because Ben Salim So Ibrahim Ali Salam one day
he faced his people. His people were either worshipers all of them
he said was worse than his own people. He would manufacture the idols and Selim
This is the time he lived in very tough time
their worship worshiping idols worshiping the sun the moon the stars, if all le abhi he called me he met Abu dune if he's these people on day and he said my father my people what do you people worshipping?
The person of a pure heart straightforward baboon What do you worshiping?
If can early hurtin dude Allah He taught he dude
is it this false deities fate fabricated idols and lords?
You desire instead of Allah has subversion.
He's facing he's challenging the ship.
And then that possesses a pure heart challenges full suit in his community and society.
He stands in front of it and challenges it.
Teach me the logic behind your falsehood.
law social he says
if call it a or b He will call me he METAR Boone Hello now Budo Snyman first of all, Lulu I caffeine. Now they respond. They say to him, now both of us lemon and we worship idols. First of all, Lulu high caffeine, and we do a decaf at the idol. Were committed to the worship of the idols. Jonnie, don't think that you're going to come and bring us something that is going to confuse us. We're here. We're bent upon the worship of idols. We're committed. We're solid, we're firm. We believe in these idols fun over Lulu caffeine.
A man who possesses a pure heart response, wants to clean the filth around him.
He says to them
Hello, yes, my own drone, OEM founder Kumanovo rune, do they hear
that they hear you when you call out to them? Do they benefit you or harm you in any way, shape or form? No, my brothers and sisters in Islam
today, maybe it's not idols that people worship.
Today it's belief systems that people worship, they just like idols,
feminism, and atheism, liberalism. And whatever ism you want to mention, these are all in the same position as idols, exactly the same, nothing different.
The idol in the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, someone would wake up one morning, he'd come to a stone, it started to carve into it until he made the shape of an idol.
Same thing as the beliefs, someone wakes up late at night, in the morning, whatever it is, puts a set of beliefs where mankind says to them, you know, this is called feminism followed. This is atheism, he'll follow it.
Ibrahim Ali is sometimes time if the idol went out of shape.
Don't get the chisel and they'll fix it, cover a bit more. Fix the shape fix the design. Same thing as modern beliefs is the modern belief. There's a certain thing that's outdated. Let's fix it. We'll remove this all say to the world actually, this is how it is. If he changes every two, three years, every two, three years, there's a new belief that comes out, explaining to us how the universe came about.
When the deed when a belief system continues to change, you will find its followers continuously changing.
So someone is on atheism for two years. He becomes something else for another two years. Then he becomes something else for another two years. Until Allah azza wa jal guide someone to Islam when someone is upon his time he believes because Islam is solid. Its time is far. Islam hasn't changed since 1400 years ago. So which followers are gonna be for him as well? Because you're adhering to something that is solid. Why would you change? That's one of the greatest proofs that Islam is the real incorrect religion that Allah azza wa jal is pleased with for mankind. Its followers are not in doubt, as follows. I like Ibrahim alayhis salam,
you will see.
So they say front of Allah, Allah Hi, Kofi. And he says to the malleus Mona call Mr. de una, we have our own Akuma Wilbur rune.
Look at their response, when he said to them, do these idols? Do they you? Do they benefit you? Do they harm you?
He said to them,
they said Below is an academic effort alone, we found our forefathers worshipping. So that's why we're worshipping. What a lame excuse your entire deed, you're gonna see
that it is the truth, because your father and your forefathers was upon it, but it didn't have a better explanation. Wallahi and by Allah, the majority of those that are upon other than Islam, if you ask him, Why are you Christian? Why are you do? Why are you an atheist? He'll say, I was raised in a family of Christianity.
I was born into a family
that were Jews like that. But those that were those that say I was raised among a family that were Christians by
did Allah commanded you to follow your father?
Or you should be believing that you're supposed to be following Jesus? Is that right?
Why don't you say that God commanded us to follow Jesus and I'm going to follow him.
Why is your excuse always?
I follow what my father was following. Because you're a liar. Your father was for example paneled leader, he you see this He used to drink that how come you don't do exactly what he does? He used to dress in this manner he used to do in this manner his friends was such and such. What are you following then in everything that he did? She was the one who's upon other than Islam is very cheeky. And so the person with a pure heart knows how to respond.
It's got solid belief.
Didn't God say to you follow Jesus? Once he agrees? Tell him let's see what Jesus actually said so we can follow him.
And then the congratulating us is that there is not a single verse in the Bible in where Jesus said follow me. Worship Me and I'm Your Lord has finished. So we come back to the pure and original message of Isa Ali salaam which is full of one Lord with
this is how weekly
statement is, this is a man with a pure heart standing in front of his people.
So now, this is the response was an academic if I don't now listen, he says call it a four or a two Macintosh taboo. And two more about the moon in the home. I do really love bill. I mean, he said, Listen, I've got some information for you.
You see everything, Your Worship, all of it. And everything, your forefathers worship of these idols and these creation. Let me tell you something, for a nomad who will leave, they are all an enemy to me.
I hate them. And they hate me as well.
I'm an enemy to all of it.
Except the Lord of the world. Listen, now listen, a person who possesses a pure heart, and a pure soul would say this. I love you. Hello, Connie, for whoever again, this is Ibrahim alayhis salam. He says it is Allah who created me and he's the one who guides me what love you who you promote the way your skin and it is he who feeds me and provides for me and nourishes me and clothes me way a speed and he is the one who provides for me to drink while living up to the familiar him and it is you causes my life and he causes my death. Were either married to for whoever Shireen. And if I was to ever fall sick, Allahu Akbar, look at his manners with Allah. He does not see you from loving the
sick. He said if I was to fall sick, then it is Allah who accuse me. Not the doctor, not the medicine, not the specialist, not the surgeon. These are all means these all means maybe they weren't maybe they don't work. But the one who is called a sheriff is Allah. The medicines not called Sheffy. The doctor is not called Sheffy. Allah He's a chef you tease name for who your stream.
Why they're married to for Who He will love you, me Tony familiar, he will love you out tomorrow. I feel really happy at the ALMA dean. And I have high hope that it is he who forgive my errors and my mistakes on that day. Well, what well, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the one who possesses a pure heart, he is quick to acknowledge and realize and recognize that Allah created him. And Allah guides him and Allah feeds him. And Allah closes him. And Allah decrees his life. And Allah picks his life away. And Allah decrees all his affairs and all these matters.
That's the pure heart. It's a heart that is solid, in its conviction that Allah is Lord.
That's a pure heart. But I tell you something.
If you acknowledge this, and you're with me, and you say, yes, indeed,
I believe that Allah azza wa jal is my Lord, and He is the maintainer of all my affairs, then I tell you something, and be prepared for it. Whoever makes this statement, whoever makes this testimony, whoever says La Ilaha, Illa Allah, and my Lord is Allah, you will be tested. You have to be tested.
These are heavy words. You think that you were able to say it,
no test to see your commitment upon it. Anyone can say it.
Law social is gonna test your commitment upon this word. Law, social, he said has even nurse or Utah who are your guru Emma, now whom left and what
did the people assume? They could see like what Ibrahim said La ilaha illa Amma Nebula, and they will not be tested.
There will be no they won't be tested, tested in terms of their commitment upon La ilaha illAllah.
So let's continue with our role model Ibrahim. He made this huge declaration in front of his people a lot of powerful words. revisit these words later on tonight and just reflect upon that. Just keep reading over in Salta, sha Allah.
Now, Ibrahim alayhi salam is 80 years old.
And he's been wanting a child for a very long time. It's no child.
He married his first wife, Sarah. She couldn't conceive. So there were no children. Between him and her.
Long story South Hall was gifted hedger. And then southla gifted her to her husband, Ibrahim alayhis salam. He married her job Allah has said
and from her, he had the first child Allahu Akbar 18 years old. The first chunk is Marian Ali. He's set up later in law.
And he's so happy and he's so dead.
you know, even today? How excited do people become when they hear the news that the wife is pregnant?
People do. baby showers, gender reveal, spending 1000s of dollars. You have men in suits popping pink balloons with a holder and of course they love it. But that's excitement, right? They call it a bundle of joy. People coming and visiting and gifts and Allahu Akbar.
Imagine 80 years old, if wanted a child or your life didn't come until that age, how excited such a person? Is this coming? Test is coming.
You said that Allah is your Lord.
We're going to test you.
Last question. Since down the first test, Ibrahim Ali has set up. He says to him, enable him. Take your family and your newborn. Take them. Put them in a desert. Beware the idea of his aura in uncultivated Valley. What does that mean? Meaning a valley where there's no greenery. There's no gas, there's no water. There's no people. There's no animals. There's nothing.
Just the barren hot desert. And a son
that is striking on this earth.
Take them, put them there and go to a Shem Ibrahim, go towards Syria and Jordan. Go. Whoa, come on. What's the logic behind that? But how do I understand this as an 18 year old father
enjoying the first moments with his first newborn?
Like in the Pure Heart
News that he five said La Ilaha illa Allah, as difficult as the command is
as agonizing as the command is
as much as pain there is in this command, it's going to be the truth came from Allah. There's got to be goodness in it. I can't see it. I didn't care if I see it or not. It's the truth. Class. It came from Allah. I gotta go.
He doesn't hesitate. He walks off.
Here's your lobby. Allahu Ana says yeah, Ibrahim.
Where are you going?
He left with them some water and some dates. And he walked off. He's not looking back. Yeah, you owe him a second time.
Oh, no metal hammer home. Allah said he did not look back. Because if you saw them in the state, they were in
his emotions perhaps would have taken the better of him. And he would have canceled this command of Allah remain in big trouble. He doesn't want to see them.
I continues to walk. He's almost out of sight. And has your calls one final time. Yeah, Ibrahim, Allahu Allah kabhi. Heather.
over to him. Is this what Allah commanded you?
The narration says he's nods his head. Yeah, Nene affirmation? Yes.
I look at this believing woman.
Her husband is a righteous man. He's a prophet.
He trained them all. She said, even lay your the yarn Allah. In that case alone abandon us. He'll not neglect us. How you measured I don't know how. But this is my belief in Allah Dawa girl to Allah Allah.
And she goes up the mountain, to look for food to look for life to look for people for something her baby is down crying. Where the Kaaba is now, he was a couple of meters out by himself. Crying
is no shade. She can carry him. She went up to a mountain. This is a woman that has just given birth. You don't today, if a woman gave birth, there's something called
maternity leave. maternity leave. She's entitled to leave what six eight weeks? I don't know. long break. Of course it's justified. omen is tired. Even in Islam, Allah says don't pray, don't fall just leave these huge obligations out for one who leaves them is a careful.
Allah azza wa jal considers the state a woman is in after she's given birth. Here's your lovely Allahu Allah. There's nothing. There's no labor there's there's no break.
And up a mountain, a Sand Mountain. Do you know how difficult it is to walk and say she's walking up and seven times?
You're gonna you're gonna say let me let him alone. We're gonna be tested.
You have to be tested. And don't you dare us
What's the wisdom behind this? What's the logic? Who you're asking? Who are you asking? When you see what's the wisdom behind the hijab? What's the wisdom behind praying five times a day? Why are we asking? Who do you expect the response from? Allah who's gonna respond to you? And tell you who you who are you?
The pure heart embraces the Command of Allah.
Yes, there is pain, there is struggle, there is difficulty, this agony, these teas this block this sweat.
But actually all of this in Islam, we call it pseudo. We call it patience.
And that patience works towards purifying the herb.
cleansing the heart, elevating the ranks and the levels of the person. That's what it does. It's not a waste. It's not difficult to go on to east. It's not blood gone to waste.
That's called Simone in Islam or sobre la paura. For our booth, who was probably Allah said, worship Him and remain patient and form and steadfast upon his worship. Don't give up until the day you meet him. Do like Ibrahim, do like the wife has up.
Gibreel Alayhis Salam is sent down Lahore laws with the believers.
And he strikes the Earth with one of his wings and zum zum gushes out until this day it's gushing out as a reminder for you and I, that the one who says La ilaha illa and stands firm upon it, and a beast, every commandment of Allah azza wa jal relief comes to him in unimaginable ways who imagined zum zum was going to gush out in the middle of a desert. There's no life there.
Well, hamdulillah Allah's relief comes, they've passed the test
proposal. There was almost death in this, but they survived. Ibrahim is not here yet. He's gone to share. It's got no clue. Isn't WhatsApp there's no social media to update the status. We're right. We're okay. There's nothing
Hello us token to Allah Allah Allah want to know what happens. So long as I'm being Allah, I don't want to know. I'm not interested. I'm interested in the commander tells me to fulfill it
each day himself.
A while later,
there are people known as the people of Judah whom they observe some life they see some water there, they see some birds on top of DISM. These people of Judah home, approach this water. They find her and her son, they seek her permission. Can we live here? Because wherever there's water, there's life. She gives them permission, no problems. The people of Judah home are the first people who lived in that area and settled in Mecca. They built their homes, they built their life and
they got married and children and there was life now in Makkah.
He is leader,
Ibrahim alayhis salam comes
and he sees his wife and his child for the very first time Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
And from then on, he continues to go back to a Shem and appease from time to time visits on his family checks up on him.
Now the second test is coming. He's even bigger and greater than the first one. He's got to get ready. But if he's gonna see Leila, hey, llamas gotta get ready.
As how it is.
It's very easy to see Leila Hilah and easy times very difficult to see Leila. Hey, Lola in difficult times.
He comes back this time when he comes back to Makkah. He's suddenly smile Ali has Salam is that the age?
Is that a beautiful age? Allah calls it fella Marbella. Varma who say
it's a nice age act like a young adult. He starts walking with his father Bella Mao who Mao who he walks with his dad aside, as a beautiful age for a parent. That's like a 1314 14 year old kid. You know, fathers that have that children and at that age, always beautiful. You can now talk to your son. He responds, you're teaching him is learning life from you. Beautiful. Take him to Albacete stands next to you praise teaching him actually spend on him you feel good.
It's much better than when they first born, changing the nappies and feeding them and there's no talk compensation and
I'm saying this to you so you can now understand the exact kind of attachment he has with his son now.
So now the test that is coming to him is much worse. more intense than the first one.
The test comes
Ibrahim Ali is set out many
for many nights on end, he continues to see in his dream, slaughtering his son, Michael, surely, son, that if you woke up today had seen a dream that you're slaughtering your son?
Would you actually think it's a good idea to go to your son and tell him now alone, you'd be scared, let alone go and tell him on Friday and you want what do people think of your salon if you said that?
What people think this guy's gone mad, crazy.
He approaches his son.
After many nights seeing this exact same dream. He says, Yeah, Boonie, my beloved Son, in the Allah. Allah is a present tense, which implies continuity, meaning this thing here and say only once you see that more than once, he kept holding it back, but now he cannot hold it back anymore. Hello. So it's a clear sign is a command from Allah coming to me through a dream in the field by me and me as the Hulk, my son, my beloved Son,
I continue to see my dream that I'm slaughtering you. From for mother Tara. I don't have a deep look into the situation. Let me know what your thoughts are. For mother Tara. For
What if a father went the son today? Told him son I'm seeing I'm slaughtering you. What happens?
You most likely the son would run away would curse his dad will go in for a blindfolded out him. All the things like this.
The incredible thing is the father is righteous. The mother is righteous. Laila Hale Allah is rooted in our hearts. How do you expect the children to come out? Most likely righteous as Oh, let's see. Ibrahim is married Allah you said um says yeah, but if tomorrow, Saturday duty insha Allah Homina sabe read. Go ahead, my beloved Father, do as you have been commanded. You're going to see me from among those who observed patients when this act is being done. Go ahead, Allah, Allahu Akbar.
Righteous parents give birth to righteous children by the permission of Allah azza wa jal today, parents are away from their kids. I was two days ago in Melbourne, I received the paper from a mother.
She didn't want to save the situation to me. So she had really not on a paper. Within the paper, it said that her husband has made it clear to her that he can no longer be a father to the kids, and use whatever money you want from my wife. But I can't be there for him.
I can't be there for him.
But I can't be there for you.
I think you thought your biggest responsibility in life is to feed and clothe him and take him to karate. I take him to soccer.
This is it.
Your biggest responsibility with your kids is their email is their deed. And this is what you'll be questioned on the Day of Judgment.
At this is Ebola here Malik is set up approaching his son seeing TMT these what we know as perhaps will say weed what what is coming? What is this commandment? slaughter him?
Didn't it come from Allah it's gotta be the truth. That's how he's raised his son.
Islam my son hold it. Sold the truth, embrace it. Here you will find a pure ha. Here once you embrace it, you will be ready to stand before Allah.
If Allah told me to go and do what you want.
So Allah azza wa jal, he said Fela Slama when they both submitted to Allah's command, Allahu Akbar, what Allah holy jabian Now he took his son and went all the way to Mina. Allah azza wa jal said what Allahu Lilya been LGB means the forehead, he held the sun, and he put his forehead on the ground. He put his forehead on the ground, so he was going to slaughter this way. Remember to hammer home Allah said he did not put the back of his head on the ground, so that if you saw him and saw the panic and the fear in his face, he would abort the mission. He would have lost his entire de la hakavod
there's nothing worth
nothing is worth it to lose your even if you're even if you have to lose him. Don't lose your email.
Lose Your Amen. So he puts him face down. What Allahu Lille Jabeen and the head is shaking.
And he took the knife
and he placed it on his neck.
And he began to do the motion of slaughtering Allahu Akbar. He was ready.
to lose him, he was ready to see booked.
He was ready to say Alhamdulillah or he fulfilled the last command. He was ready for these feelings. Like can Allah social, bestowed His compassion and mercy upon him and a call calls out Pub Sub doctor.
You have been honest, to the dream to the Command of Allah.
You really want Allah social. You want to obey Allah. You really do love Allah more than your son hulless you've pious there's no point feat leave your son leave him and Allah azza wa jal sent down a ram
a huge RAM offer they know who busy Navi and he slaughtered him. And we slaughter that every night Alaba to reflect and to say, Oh Allah, if you had commanded us to slow down our own sons, we would have slaughtered them. We would have because we prefer Allah over anything else. That's the pure heart. The pure heart is going to prefer last command and Allah's love over anything else. That's the pure heart is yet but I tell you something my brothers and sisters in Islam Allah listen to this.
Allah azza wa jal
did not command us to abandon our families, somewhere in the desert. Allah He did not commend us to slaughter our sons, Allah He did not command us with things that we cannot do. Look at the deal. Look how simple it is. Five presidents five prayers a day my sister Well, there's little mom 30 days faster, it's good for you. Skip purify your heart cleanse you get you ready for the meeting with Allah. Well, there's 2.5% of your wealth you paid zakat. And if you can afford Alhaji go to Al Hajj, the specific foods you need to keep away from specific drinks, please keep away from that. There is a specific dress code, please adhere to it, where it my brother, my sister especially, there is a
specific dress code and he told her to come outside Allah. So Allah not Well, let's not what's so hard about understanding it.
And he said he taught so that he can prove to yourself that you have a pure heart. Now today
there's an airline. I don't know what type of airline but this airline, its policy is that every female worker of the the stewardess to air the crew, every female worker must be dressed one of the Caribbean countries and must be covered, the head must be covered, the hair must be covered and must be dressed.
And people do it. No problems they find within themselves I took it I'll do it. Even if they're not people that wear the hijab, even if these are women that don't wear the hijab, the word for those couple of hours because it's the airline policy. There is a job this money after
Okay, so you were able to do it. They belong social has a policy before any airline policy.
The policy of Allah has solution the law of Allah the Command of Allah. This is specific dress code for a male for a female. He must be you must adhere to it. You must prove that you weren't unkillable, Salim is pure heart.
Once you fulfill Allah's commands, maybe sometimes in the commands there's difficulty. Of course there is 40. Look at Ibrahim, what difficulty DIKTI Did he go through, there is difficulty. There is pain, there is blood, there is sweat, there is fatigue. But all of that we call that summer. We call that sub, there is reward there is purification in this once you fulfill Allah's commands, the caller will call out God sub Dr. Royer. You've been honest to the commands of Allah. That's how you attain a pure heart, my brothers and sisters in Islam. That's it. That's my message. The message my brothers and sisters in Islam is to see where Allah's commands are, and adhere to them and follow
them and understand that you will be tested along the way. And when you are tested, the absolute worst thing you can do during a calamity
is to engage in sin and leave the obligations which is what people do when a hold on a quarter Illa during calamities. He believes Allah is not with him. Why did Allah abandon me? How come Allah azza wa jal neglected me? Why is Allah angry and upset with me? Yeah, okay, why didn't why understanding like this? Allah told me if you will say La Ilaha illa Allah the test is coming.
The test is coming.
Allah azza wa jal is only testing your commitment.
And at that moment, you lose your commitment. You didn't understand the message of the calamity you did not understand it well.
Rahim Allah you Salam should be a great model to all of us.
That's the pure heart. Finally, my brothers and sisters in Islam, Abu Salim is a pure heart the word a Salim Salim. It means something that is absolutely free from scratches and damage and dents. If I was to say to the car outside, I purchased it today it is Salim you know what that means? That means is brand new just came out.
There's no dents. There's no scratch. There's nothing on it. That's psyllium that's the heart that's gonna benefit you. You know when you had this hand, when you came up from your mother, see that? See that fresh heart as soon as you just came out? So living the second coming out? It is see how clean it is? A baby's heart. How clean is it? It's got no clue what's going on in this earth. It only knows Allah and it relies upon Allah for its food, which is the breast milk and even that human beings have no idea. No, any hand in it. This is a machine designed by Allah azza wa jal he eat food. No comes out.
Yeah, I don't eat grass, no comes out.
And the filters at the tip I never changed. Plus those over lifetime. We have a conditions you got to change the filters every, every few months. Soon Allah
that's the seat man. I'm seeing that when you see this kid coming out. That's the pure heart that's only knows my urispas upon Allah.
That's the heart you need to come back with from the day of judgment. The same one that Allah gave you when you first came out, was clean. It had no, it wasn't tarnished and damaged with shirk. It wasn't tainted and blackened with sins.
It wasn't affected by doubts, and major and minor sins and innovations touch the pure heart, the heart that is clean from all forms of shake, from all impurities from doubts, and from major sins and minor sins and from innovations. That's the pure heart. And to come back with this, obey Allah follow the commands properly. Patients in the time of calamity, with a lot of is still afford to do with the major and the minor sins. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to cleanse our hearts. We ask him Subhanahu wa Taala to purify our hearts. We ask him Subhanahu wa Taala to allow us to be pleased with him as our Lord and to grant us pleasure that Islam is our deen and we ask him Subhanahu wa
Taala to allow us within our hearts to accept the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as our Prophet and Messenger, we ask Allah azza wa jal that he reads us among shahada are so deeply in will Ambia and they admit us into the paradise with them. We ask him subhanho wa Taala that he's bestow His pleasure upon us and His mercy and His forgiveness and his compassion and his gentleness. And we asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to allow us to reach Ramadan and to allow us to benefit from Ramadan and to give us the ability that we worship Him in Ramadan. And we asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to accept our deeds of Ramadan and to bless them for us, and 10 minutes into the highest levels of the
