Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while allinial Sabe Marine.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:23

All Praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanahu wa taala and may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon His servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:24 --> 00:00:31

as to what follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, A salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:51

Hamdulillah that Allah azza wa jal has given us yet another opportunity that we gather for his sake, we ask Allah azza wa jal that he keeps our intentions in see and that he accepts our gathering and forgive our sins and our shortcomings.

00:00:52 --> 00:01:08

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam tonight's talk is titled, The three fundamentals and of course we have Nila heater Isla, we're going to explain what these fundamentals are and how to actually apply and practice these fundamentals in your life.

00:01:09 --> 00:02:04

And they are so important, rather this is the purpose of the existence of mankind that they implement and he and commit to these three fundamentals. And they are so important that in the the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself would recommend and encourage each and every single believer to repeat these fundamentals upon his tongue three times in the morning and three times in the evening. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in a hadith anyone who says an OBE to be here not bad. Well, Bill Islami Deena will be Mohamed Salah Allahu alayhi, wa salam and Obeah Can I have can Allah Allah Who are your LEA in the Hadith and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Anyone who says

00:02:05 --> 00:02:51

three times in the morning, and three times in the evening, I am pleased with Allah as my Lord. And that's the first fundamental, and I am pleased with Islam as my religion and way of life. And that's the second fundamental, and I am pleased with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as my prophet, and that's the third fundamental, then it becomes mandatory upon Allah azza wa jal that he pleased that person on the Day of Judgment, that person become pleased, becomes pleased on the Day of Judgment, in the sense that Allah azza wa jal bestows His mercy and His pleasure upon him and admits him into the paradise. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:02:53 --> 00:02:58

in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, as in the hadith of Abu Dhabi, Allah one,

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

that when a person enters his grief,

00:03:04 --> 00:03:30

there are two angels that approach him. The hadith mentions a Swadeshi icon. These two angels are black and they are blue. Some narrations mentioned that these faeces, the angels, they face is black, and their eyes are blue. And they approached the one that is in his grave, believer disbeliever whoever it is,

00:03:31 --> 00:04:04

that's how these two angels pee. And they are known in the Hadith as you call him a hottie him and moon come while Alpha Nikhil, that's their name uncle, one Nokia, or ullamco, what Nokia? These are the names that are given these angels that come to the dead person that has just been put in his grief. They don't come with a white our buyer at a camp and he comes to and he begins to question you, Allahu Allah and how they look, the Hadith mentioned that they are black and blue.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:28

And these three fundamentals that we're going to explain and speak about today are the questions that each and every single one of us will be asked in his grief. The angel will bring the person to rise, and they will ask each and every single one of us men or book and that's the first question, who is your mode?

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

As for the believer, the one who knew his Lord, and committed to the fact that Allah is his Lord, and he was pleased with this matter. And we'll discuss how a believer is pleased with Allah as he is logged. Then you will see in his grave in response to this question, Allah Hora be Allah is my Lord. Then the angel will ask a second question, and he will say to him, men, nubby yoke who is your messenger?

00:05:00 --> 00:05:51

And the true believer, the true believer that had committed and adapted to sunnah to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was a proud follower of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, Mohammed Nabi, Muhammad is my prophet. And then you will be asked a final and a third question. What are the you know? What is your religion? What was your way of life that you committed to the believer who believed in Islam, and lived a life of Islam, adhering to the commandments of Allah would say, with no hesitation, and the slave Houdini, and there is no lying in the grief, there is no hypocrisy in the grief, there is only certainty and there is only what a person lived and how his

00:05:51 --> 00:06:38

heart was during this world the life there's no fabrication, there's no lies, you can pray to the angels of Allah especial the believer would see at least lamb Houdini, and Islam is my religion. And you know, Allah azza wa jal, he says in the Quran, Yama tubeless, Salah, on the Day of Judgment, the intentions are exposed, a person's heart is damaged on the Day of Judgment. Allah azza wa jal, he says, while Phil and I feel so do, whatever was in the chest, the intentions, the actions of the heart, this is what is brought out on the day of judgment and judged, not your outwards actions and what you did on the outside. Because the hypocrites did Allah on the outside, but on the inside, it

00:06:38 --> 00:07:13

was correct, it was terrible. It did not truly embrace and commit to the fact that Allah is its Lord, and that Al Islam is a way of life, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the final prophet. Right? He did not have this in his heart, you have a lot of actions on the outside. So therefore the point of judgment, on the Day of Judgment is the actual heart. And so this is why there's no lying in the grief, you can apply these answers. And that's why the disbeliever when he is asked these very same questions, he will say, Hey,

00:07:16 --> 00:07:27

I don't know. For every one of the questions. He says, I do not know. Allahu Akbar, what a disaster. What a calamity. You know, my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:07:29 --> 00:08:16

It's fine. If you die, and you did not know what the value of wealth is, and what the value of money is. It's fine. And it's okay. If you die, and you did not know what the latest cars are, it's fine. And it's okay. And it's no problem. If you die, and you're put in your grief, and you did not know, the latest technology, and what is out there of research and topics and news, headings and so on. It's okay, it's fine today, and not having an account on social media. But if you die, and you did not know who Allah is, and you did not know your messenger, and you did not know your Islam, that struggle, that is a calamity for the rest of what you live. And that is forever and ever.

00:08:17 --> 00:09:03

And this is why Amar social brings the reality of the disease that is apparent in the people, the greatest problem on Earth today. Allah socially summarizes it in five words in the Quran, the greatest problem on earth, he says what are called Allah Hockaday that the people mankind did not honor Allah in the manner he is supposed to be honored. And people on it Allah had people known Allah had people known that Allah is the Creator and their provider and sustainer and the one who caused their life and caused their death and decrease all their affairs and matters, there would be not a single problem and no corruption on earth. However, that is the greatest problem. And so this

00:09:03 --> 00:09:49

is why a human being especially Muslim, cannot afford to go into his grave without the knowledge of these three fundamentals. And that's the importance of the topic. That's the importance of the topic and the examination sheet of the grief. We already have it. I just read it to you now. These are the questions on the examination sheet, my brothers and sisters in Islam, it is incumbent and obligatory and compulsory upon every single believer to know these three matters. And it is recommended that the parents begin to teach their children this matter from the moment they begin to speak and understand what you see.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:59

As signal Josie I think it was Lima Allah that said the first thing that a child should see upon his tongue is La ilaha IL Allah

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

That's the first thing that you should teach a child the moment he starts moving his tongue and making words and putting words together. That's the first thing that should be learned. Look Nursery Rhymes and what is taught in child care. Rather it is let you know Hey, Lola, and in countries like this Western countries, no one is going to do this except the parents. No school no child care will have the care that the parents are supposed to have when teaching their children, Elise lamb, and the fact of these three fundamentals Hola Hola, bol Islam Houdini when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Anna v. And this matter is very important to the point where many scholars of Islam, past and

00:10:48 --> 00:11:23

present, continue to write books and volumes and volumes concerning these three fundamentals. And I will direct your attention to a short book, and an easy book that you could purchase and you could read, and you could learn more and more about these three fundamentals. And this is a book that was authored and written by Imam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahab Rahim Allah, a short treatise, a short essay, and he titled it philosopher to fool What are the let

00:11:24 --> 00:12:13

the three fundamentals with the proof and he wrote a short book, and many scholars past and present have put a lot of effort in explaining this work of his so we the counts as a fantastic work concerning these three fundamentals. And therefore it is recommended that you purchase a copy tonight if Nila and you make a serious commitment that you read, read from this book for yourself and for your family every night. If you read a few pages every night Bismillah heeta Allah you will conclude the book in two to three months, you will have gained so much knowledge and you would have shown that concern that you have for these three matters. And by the way, the only person who will

00:12:13 --> 00:12:39

be able to see the answers in the grief and answer correctly. Allah azza wa jal speaks about these people. In Surah Ibrahim, Allah azza wa jal he says, You Furby to Allah Who Lavina Manu, Bill Kohli, Thayer Beatty, Phil hayati, dunya, awful Kira, Allah azza wa jal, he says that he will give forgiveness and steadfastness

00:12:40 --> 00:12:51

in this life. And in the next to the believers that upheld the firm word, meaning meaning to hammer home Allah they said, Anyone

00:12:52 --> 00:13:47

who upheld the firm want, which is La ilaha illa. That's the firm, Pure Word, whoever upheld this word, and understood its meaning and implemented it in his life, and said it with honesty and sincerity. These are the only people that Allah azza wa jal will give them steadfastness upon Eman in this life, and in the next. And what is meant by the next is that they will be able to answer the questions that the angels pose to them. And they will answer correctly. What about what a huge reward and a huge blessing for such a person and these questions of the grief are known as fit not to cover? So you might have heard fitness will cover and other will cover or they will cover is the

00:13:47 --> 00:14:38

punishment of the grief fit net will cover which is the test and the trial of the grief. That's the questions. That's the questions. So the believer will be able to go through fifth Natural Cover by the permission and the help of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And so tonight Bismillah heeta Allah, we're going to elaborate in some more detail about the three fundamentals so that you have a good understanding of what they are. Because it is very obvious that every Muslim knows that Allah is his Lord. But what does that entail? What does that mean? How do you embrace the reality of this fact? And then I want to give you examples of Muslims that would say, My Lord is Allah, but they do things

00:14:38 --> 00:14:43

during the day and during the night. That is contrary to the fact that Allah is the Lord.

00:14:44 --> 00:14:55

And so once you're aware of these matters, you become a lot more careful to establishing that Allah is your Lord correctly. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

When we look at the first matter, and the first fundamental

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

Are we to be Lahiru bear. That's the first thing that a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us in terms of what to say and up on our tongues, three times in the morning, three times in the evening. You're supposed to remind yourself six times, at least per day in light of this reality, and this fact, what does it mean? A translation would see an OBE to biller Hello, I am pleased with Allah as my Lord. That's what it translates to.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:48

Albeit, what does the word of OBT mean? Because that's the key word in this entire hadith of OB. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord.

00:15:50 --> 00:16:23

And what this means as an Imam, and no one we call him a hula. He said, When you are pleased with something, it means you are totally convinced by that matter. And you are so satisfied with it, that you do not seek anything else. That's what that will be. It means. So when you say I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, what you're actually saying, is that I am convinced, convinced beyond doubt, that Allah is my Lord.

00:16:25 --> 00:17:17

And you're adding to this in your heart, seeing that I do not seek to look for anyone other than Allah as my Lord. how powerful this is. Sometimes a person could see us, Allah is my Lord. And I've also chosen and decided to take Lords besides Allah. In that case, it should, right. There are some people like this, some religions like this, they worship Allah Quraysh they worship Allah, but they worship idols alongside Allah, and anyone who does that. wasn't pleased with Allah as his Lord. If you're pleased with something, that means you are certain beyond doubt, that that's the only thing possible. And I don't, I'm not interested in anything else. That's what will be will be Lehi, or bad

00:17:17 --> 00:17:28

means. What? This word or liberal, it's an emotion. It also teaches us what kind of emotion was supposed to have in our hearts concerning our Lord.

00:17:30 --> 00:17:40

Albeit being pleased with Allah as your Lord. That is the highest form of expressing love to Allah assertion.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

You know, when you want to express love to Allah,

00:17:46 --> 00:18:17

you don't say, I can of Allah, or Buddha or Allah. That week, there is something higher than this, to say in words. If you want to express your love to Allah, the absolute highest form and highest plebs is to say are we to believe you're a bear? I am pleased with Allah as my Lord. And this is extremely important that you utter this word, and you embrace it with your heart.

00:18:18 --> 00:19:08

Because the greatest preparation, the greatest preparation you can do before meeting Allah azza wa jal is to love Allah subhanahu wa ala has the greatest preparation you can have before meeting Allah azza wa jal and this is found in the hadith of Anas ibn Malik globally. Allahu Anhu Sahabi Anna Sabri Allahu Anhu. He says that he was at the door of the masjid. And there was a Bedouin man that came to the door of the masjid. And he had a question to ask him the visa Allahu alayhi wa salam. So he said the Rasul Allah, Mata Sal, and honestly standing there listening to the entire conversation, and this is happening where? At the door of the masjid, and this man is asking what he's saying to

00:19:08 --> 00:19:34

the soul of Mosul, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when is the hour going to be established? Look at the concern. Look at the concern of those people. He's standing at the door, asking about the Day of Judgment. When is it going to be established? So then a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't know it. So he said, team, were there that are that today layer? What have you prepared for it?

00:19:36 --> 00:19:46

The ideas in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us that don't worry about when it is worried about what you have prepared for it.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:59

So that's the greatest concern for a believer. How am I going to prepare for the day of judgment? So many people know the Hadith up until here. And that's it. But the remainder of the Hadith Thank you

00:20:00 --> 00:20:13

He teaches us the best way to prepare. So the man he said, O Messenger of Allah, I did not prepare an abundance of prayer and fasting and charity. I didn't have access of these matters.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

But I do love Allah and His messenger.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:26

So then in the summer Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, you will be with those who you love, on the Day of Judgment.

00:20:27 --> 00:21:00

In other words, what, in other words, the greatest preparation to have in your heart, before meeting Allah is the love of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is why I go back to this hadith, in when Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will teach us to see your OB to delay your bear. And that's the first fundamental Allah we I am pleased, meaning I am I love Allah as my Lord.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:15

And if you were to claim this, honestly and sincerely, and I'll tell you how, from your heart, then you are on a path of preparing to meet Allah azza wa jal, the one who says it'll be to be lagging or bad.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:45

And it is honest and sincere from his heart. Then a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you will be with those who have such a person will be in the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the company of Allah subhanahu wa taala. It will be to be led here are my brothers and sisters in Islam. What does that mean now? And what does it entail? And how can I perfect?

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

The fact that Allah is my Lord.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:55

So Allah is your Lord. It entails five matters.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:17

And will be to be lay here means that you are pleased with Allah as being your Creator. Because that's one of the matters of our worship. When you say you are pleased with Allah as your Lord, then your Lord, your Lord, or

00:22:18 --> 00:22:22

five things is entailed and embedded within this word

00:22:23 --> 00:22:39

that you accept and you are pleased with Allah as being your Creator, your Creator. So what does that mean? It means you are to be pleased with the way Allah azza wa jal fashioned you and designed you and created you.

00:22:41 --> 00:23:12

The one who says a lot for you to be lazy, you're not bad. And he's sitting outside the clinic, waiting for cosmetic surgery, waiting for beautifying himself with Botox and fillers and nose jobs and lifts and implants. And whatever it is, that this was done all this brought to the attention of people, then this person's action has contradicted what he said on his tongue have rallied to believe that

00:23:13 --> 00:23:41

if you truly are pleased with Allah as you're not, then the first thing you are pleased with is the fact that he is your creed. And he is your designer, and he is your fashion. You see how these few simple words you see in the morning and in the evening, can give you a lot of security and confidence within yourself. Today, people have a lot of insecurity when it comes to their looks.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:51

And this is especially among the woman right? Because the majority of those who are lining up for cosmetic surgery, a woman

00:23:53 --> 00:23:54

and a small percentage of men.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:04

And the idea is the majority of these women enter these clinics for beautification purpose,

00:24:06 --> 00:24:18

for beautification purpose, why, why do you go in there? Why? What's the problem with how Allah designed you and fashion you and created you? What's the problem

00:24:19 --> 00:24:25

says I don't like the way my nose is shaped. So I want to reduce its size.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:45

I don't like the way my eye lashes out. So I need to pluck something from the top and something from the bottom. So it looks beautiful and presentable. So that woman that I sit in their presence can give me some appreciation for how I look now.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:58

This is contradicting robbery to be like your bear. It's contradicting the first fundamental that a believer is supposed to embrace. This is the issue

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


00:25:00 --> 00:25:11

A lever that says I am pleased with Allah as my Lord says Alhamdulillah for the way Allah has designed me and fashioned me and created me

00:25:12 --> 00:25:13

a chip

00:25:14 --> 00:26:06

a mess unless a person is doing a rectification surgery, that's excluded. We're not speaking about that. Someone had an abnormal News, let's see. Right and what defines abnormality? If you say that my nose is bringing the attention of the people, they are staring at me. That's a sign of abnormality. Then in that case, if a person went and did corrective surgery, rectification surgery, bringing the news back to a way and a sheep that is normal, then that is fine. There's no problem. There's no issue concerning this matter. What I'm speaking about is cosmetic surgery, that is done with the intention of beautification. Such people I cost on the tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu

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

alayhi wa sallam,

00:26:08 --> 00:26:52

as an epistle, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Learn Allah Who was she met? While she was still she not? While Mutanda Meursault? Well, motor, Felicia T Lin, whose knee that's the proof. The V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Cursed are those who apply tattoos on others, and those who received the tattoo, and those who pluck their eyebrows, and those who separate between their teeth, for beautification purpose, that's the Hadith that teaches us that doing anything to your body, for beautification purpose, why it was normal,

00:26:53 --> 00:27:17

then this person is cursed on the tongue of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And such a person has deficiency in the first fundamental that you're supposed to embrace it and that's the first thing. I want you to realize your bet that you embrace and you are pleased with the way Allah azza wa jal fashion you and designed you. Number two,

00:27:19 --> 00:27:26

if you're pleased with Allah is your Lord, then your Lord is the one who provided for you, and He sustains you and he nourishes you.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:28

So a person

00:27:30 --> 00:27:33

that is displeased with his risk.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:48

He is displeased with his provision. He is not happy with his business, not happy with his income. He's not happy with his savings. He's not pleased, then such a person has deficiency.

00:27:50 --> 00:28:24

With an OB to biller he'll have bare he has deficiency with the first fundamental and how does the person know that he is displeased with the cuddle, that Allah azza wa jal has decreed for him with the risk the provision that Allah has decreed for him. If this person begins to source provision, from haram means, then that means and it's a clean sign that he is displeased with what Allah has given him off provision

00:28:25 --> 00:28:29

if a person begins to seek haram

00:28:31 --> 00:28:31


00:28:32 --> 00:29:05

through al haram, stealing, cheating, consuming and riba not paying the people back their debt, oppressing the people financially, and all these matters, finds the need to lie in paperwork, so that he increases his allowance. All of that every money that you pursue in Haram is a clear sign that you are displeased with the risk that Allah azza wa jal has written for you.

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

However, if a person continues to earn his wealth, through and Khaled means, and he would like to expand only through halal, then this person is pleased with the risk that Allah azza wa jal has written for him. There's no issue to pursue, and to grow your business, no issue, as long as it is in an Khaled and it does not distract you from your obligations and your responsibilities. No problems go forth. And such a person is not considered that he is not content with what Allah has provided him with

00:29:44 --> 00:30:00

it and this is how you know. So now, have a deep look into yourself and have a deep look into your financial status. Is your wolf only through Halon? If that's the case, then control

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

actualizations you have ticked the second box when it comes to the first fundamental.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:15

However, if some of your love is sourced through and haram, be careful, because now you have deficiency in your first fundamental.

00:30:16 --> 00:30:50

This is what it means to be pleased with Allah as your Lord. And my brothers and sisters in Islam, especially those that are living in Western countries. Maybe some of you are going through extreme financial difficulty, no problems. But don't lose sight of the overall picture. Zoom out of your life a little. And look across the entire globe. This very second that we are speaking, there are people dying from starvation and dying from hunger.

00:30:51 --> 00:31:00

And there are people dying from extreme cold because they don't have shelter. That is that provision of shelter doesn't exist in their life.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:09

And they are dying of dehydration. Because there's no fresh clean water around them. Some are walking 20 kilometres

00:31:11 --> 00:31:23

to fetch some clean, pure water. And still, it's not as clean as what we have here. When we just open our taps and run it as low her there's plenty of water here. That's no problem.

00:31:24 --> 00:31:26

Look at the overall picture.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:36

And why am I telling you this? Because when you look at the overall picture, it gives you a sense of gratitude to what Allah has given you.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:49

And this is a strategy that a newbie sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us is not for me, Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam he taught us don't look at those that are above you financially.

00:31:50 --> 00:32:40

Look at those that are below you financially, that only cash Don't let us do them at Allaha alikoum. Because in that way, if you do that, then you will not belittle the provision that Allah azza wa jal has given you, you won't belittle it, how are you going to be littler? If you always focused on those that are below and underneath you? How are you ever going to be ungrateful to the near Mohalla never heard what happened. You will say it humbly left what Allah has given me. The only time the only time a person will transgress and rebel against Allah's laws, and go and source Hello money is when he looks at those that are above him. I want to be like them. Why didn't Allah give me risk

00:32:40 --> 00:32:42

like them? Why.

00:32:43 --> 00:32:56

And for some, it could be a fitna, I studied. And I have a degree more than him. And I'm more eloquent than him. And I have better skill than him. And this person didn't even finish school.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:01

And he just inherited his dad's wealth. How's the fair?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:03

I need to have more than him.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:25

You're calculating according to bream, and according to your logic, whereas Elkader is given by Allah's decree and permission, and by His wisdom, and by his knowledge, it is, is not divided among the people according to their certificates and their intelligence and their belief and their faith. This about

00:33:27 --> 00:33:30

him around the biggest tyrant, perhaps more than you and I.

00:33:33 --> 00:33:54

So it's not determined in this matter. So sit down, and relax, and say and Hamdulillah, for Allah has provided you with and what he's given you, then and only, you are strengthening the first fundamental or be to be like your bed. Now it's getting strong, and will be to be late or bad. So that's the second matter.

00:33:56 --> 00:33:57

The third matter

00:33:59 --> 00:34:00

is for you.

00:34:01 --> 00:34:07

To believe and to accept that it is Allah who caused your life and he's the one who causes your death.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:21

That's what it means to see your ability to realize your bear. That means you are pleased with Allah is your Creator, your provider, the one who caused your life and caused your death, so you don't complain.

00:34:23 --> 00:34:41

hamdulillah Allah has brought you into existence when hamdulillah do not complain about your existence, and the time in which he existed in which the decree of Allah for you to be born in this day and age, and for you to still be alive in 2023.

00:34:43 --> 00:34:59

And whenever Allah decrees to take your life Alhamdulillah I surrender to the decree of Allah, and I'm ready to go whenever Allah azza wa jal decreased for me this matter. Now, with that attitude, you're strengthening the first fundamental in Islam

00:35:01 --> 00:35:09

And then the fifth one because life and death come together. So that's number three and four. And the fifth,

00:35:10 --> 00:35:12

when you see your OB to be Lahiru

00:35:13 --> 00:35:40

I am pleased with Allah has my lord that entails that you are pleased with the fact that Allah decrees all your affairs and matters. So you are pleased with any calamity that Allah azza wa jal has decreed for you. And you are pleased with every goodness that Allah sends you away. If your calamity is a financial calamity, or a health related calamity, or you lost a loved one,

00:35:41 --> 00:36:35

or you lost a business or you lost 12 Or you must earn income, whatever the case may be, you are pleased and you are satisfied with the fact that this has happened. And you say Alhamdulillah and you say in early law, we're in a legal regime. How can he person or how does a person achieve being pleased with the cadaver that Allah azza wa jal decrees for him with the Bab cuddle that Allah and decrease for him? How can you achieve being pleased with that? Very simple, by saying words that are pleasing to Allah. So in a moment of calamity, if you see in Allah, we're in LA, here's your own, and hamdulillah here, Allah Kula *, then this is a great and a clear sign, that you are pleased

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

with the bed cuddle that Allah decreed for you.

00:36:41 --> 00:37:09

And if you continue to remain firm and steadfast upon the commandments in the worship of Allah throughout the period of calamity, then this is a clear and agreed sign, that you are pleased with the calamity that Allah has brought upon you. Right? The worst thing you can do during a calamity is leave out the obligations and start a new chapter with Siemens and transgression and rebellion.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:44

And the vast majority of people, when they lose their faith, when they lose the first fundamental, when they lose Allah Hora be the vast majority lose it in a time of calamity. Hardly anyone loses his faith in good times. In good times, it's very easy to maintain your faith. When things are going good. When things are manageable in your life. It's good. You can maintain both the two below here are bad, but the vast majority,

00:37:45 --> 00:38:03

they abandon all of the to be laid bare, and lose their whole been in Islam during a calamity. Why? Because these people thought that Allah azza wa jal is attacking them. So now they want to rebel against Allah by leaving his command.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:20

This state, the heart is as though it's saying, you My Lord wants to fight me with this calamity. I'm going to leave your path, I'm going to walk another path. My Allah when I hold on to 11 Allah, that's from the trick of a che.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:23

And so this is why

00:38:25 --> 00:38:26

when we mentioned this matter,

00:38:27 --> 00:38:33

I bring to your attention, that anyone who says that will be to be let your bear

00:38:35 --> 00:39:19

and embraces it in the manner that I explained of these five matters. So you are pleased with Allah as being your Creator, and sustainer and provider, and you are pleased that he caused your life and causes your death. And you are pleased with the fact that He decrees all your affairs and matters, the good and the bad. You're pleased with that. You're screaming it out from your heart. You're saying Oh, Allah will more indeed I am pleased. If your heart is screaming that and this is the reality you want to really embrace. Then there is something important you're supposed to know. And that is that Allah has social is going to test this commitment of yours.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:32

You're not gonna go hack through it with ease. Allah azza wa jal, he said a Hasebe. A nurse, a Utah coup A year old who won't blow up the room.

00:39:34 --> 00:39:37

Did the people assume they're going to be left alone?

00:39:38 --> 00:39:59

Left alone without any test? While they said? Munna? Why will they say your ability to biller hear about it the people assume that they're going to be screaming out from their heart. Allah is my Lord, and they will not be tested. Impossible.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01


00:40:02 --> 00:40:11

wants to see this word and embrace it, in its full capacity will be tested by the Promise of Allah

00:40:13 --> 00:40:24

and Allah azza wa jal so that we're not shocked and surprised. He tells us we're not converting the Lavina mimco bleep. You're no different. We tested those before you

00:40:26 --> 00:40:43

fillet Alaba nama who live in a sort of elemental Kcb and Allah azza wa jal surely knew, from among all those who he tested, who was actually true to the world that will lead to be like your bear. And who was the liar and the fabricator

00:40:45 --> 00:40:52

and from these people of the past, that Allah tested look at the example of Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:40:53 --> 00:40:54

Ibrahim Ali, he said,

00:40:55 --> 00:41:37

One day, he approaches these people. And of course they were worshipping idols and worshipping the sun and the moon and the stars and worshipping all sorts of things. So of course, he came in he condemned all that they worship. He said to them for no I do will leave a lot of behind. I mean, he said, listen up people, everything you people worship, they are all an enemy to me, except the Lord of the Worlds. Listen, now. Listen. He says to them. I love you. halacha ninfa Hua Deen. My Lord is the one who created me and he's the one who guides me that's the same thing I told you about what it will be like a lot better. First thing is to shout out and say that he's the one who created me and

00:41:37 --> 00:41:48

love you Hello Kenny for who you deem will love you Who are you paying money when a steam and it is here my mod who provides for me and gives me to drink. That's the second one.

00:41:49 --> 00:42:35

I love you Hello Kenny. For where Dino Levy who are your three minute spin when either money to for who is feeding and if I was to ever fall sick. He is the one who kills me and heals me. Look at his manners with Allah. He doesn't say if my lord was to cause me to get sick. He said if I get sick, that's manners with Allah, you ascribe that which is bad and evil to yourself not to Allah azza wa jal Hi manners. He says any fine was to get sick. It is Allah who accused me and heals me. Not the doctor, not the medicine. Not the treatment, not the surgery. That doesn't kill you. The doctor is not called the Chevy. The medicine is not called a Chevy. Allah he's a Chevy. These matters only

00:42:35 --> 00:43:23

means they might work. They might not work. You don't rely upon them. You rely upon a Chevy to give you Schiefer Allah azza wa jal can give you Schiefer in your house without even attending the doctor and attending the surgery and attending all these matters. That's what he's saying. Look at the heart that knows that Allah is its Lord, when he then made it to for Who He will levy you may 20 familiar Hain and it is Allah who causes my life and causes my death while living up now. I'm fairly happy at the yoga dean. And it is only Allah who I have high hope that he will forgive my sin on the Day of Resurrection, meaning he believes in the Day of Resurrection. See that? See what Ibrahim did.

00:43:24 --> 00:43:29

He just boasted with OB to be like your bet. That's what he did. Then what happened?

00:43:30 --> 00:43:42

Didn't I say? As Allah said, Whoever says I believe in Allah has my Lord, and believed in these matters that Ibrahim said, has to be tested.

00:43:44 --> 00:43:52

So the first test presents itself to Ibrahim Ali salah. Allah has zwischen from nowhere, commands Ibrahim.

00:43:53 --> 00:44:01

He was newly married to hedgehog, all the Allahu anha. And he had a newborn with

00:44:02 --> 00:44:56

his name is Marian Allen, he set up a new family, a new child, and you know the excitement of the father and the mother. And this is a father that has reached the age of 80. And he's always wanted a child. And at this age, Allah gives him a child. How happy is this moment for him? You know, today today, they call it a bundle of joy. People do gender reveal parties, or baby showers and they give gifts to these people. And people celebrate the occasion of children and so on. That's the people. Only it's an exciting moment. But look at the test that's coming. Allah azza wa jal, he says the Ibrahim alayhi salam, take your family, including your newborn, put them in a desert in an

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

uncultivated Valley, which is in Mecca.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:06

There's no life. There's no greenery, there's no water. It's hot, it's barren. It's a desert.

00:45:07 --> 00:45:07

There's nothing.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:16

There's no human. There's nothing. Allah commands him, put them there and go to a Shem. Travel, leave them.

00:45:18 --> 00:45:23

What does that mean? Where's the logic in that? Where's the sense in that?

00:45:24 --> 00:45:26

You want to see OB to be like,

00:45:27 --> 00:45:28

the test is coming.

00:45:29 --> 00:45:34

And you're supposed to submit with no question. And he leaves them and he goes,

00:45:35 --> 00:46:09

and there's no WhatsApp, and no social media to update the status of what's happening. Things all good. He's got no clue what's happening. He walks off. Didn't the command come from a mall? It must be true. It must be the truth. It must be full of good. That's all I know. And I'm good to know this. I don't want to know anything else. He walks off. And of course, you know the story of how Allah azza wa jal. And he mentioned that she would scream out to Ibrahim, where are you leaving us? Where are you leaving us? And then she says to him Did Allah commanded to do this and he walks away.

00:46:11 --> 00:46:42

And then she runs between us of our marijuana. Imagine, this is a new mother that has just given birth. Today, if a woman gives birth, there is something known as maternity leave, right maternity leave, it's probably for I don't know. 810 weeks I'm not sure. Why because this difficulty, there is hardship woman is supposed to rest even in his lab. She doesn't have to pray for at least 40 days after pregnancy even Allah considers the matter.

00:46:43 --> 00:46:45

The one who leaves a salon is a care.

00:46:47 --> 00:46:54

For a woman, Allah azza wa jal considers the matter lever for solid 40 days no problem. Or until that blood stops.

00:46:55 --> 00:46:57

Imagine this, I mean a new mom and she's just given birth.

00:46:58 --> 00:47:10

And she's trying to look for water for a child going up a mountain that is of sand. Walking on sand is difficult, much, much more difficult than walking on solid rock.

00:47:12 --> 00:47:15

And not once or twice, seven times.

00:47:16 --> 00:47:30

On one mountain and seven on the other mountain was 14 times all up. And the mountain is not like what it is now in Mecca. It was an actual mountain talking almost 2000 years ago before erosion.

00:47:31 --> 00:47:44

The mountain was was was high under the sun, trying to look for water for her child. And then eventually Allah azza wa jal gives them relief and zooms and pops out of nowhere.

00:47:45 --> 00:47:52

walkabout This is how Allah rewards those who are true to elite to be level up there.

00:47:54 --> 00:48:32

Maha kebab and then a second test comes to you but if this is a test for Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhis salam did not fail in this test. He did not sit there and McCann say My Lord, sorry, I can't do this. What is this commandment? What is his hardship and difficulty or putting me in? What is this pain and burden that you've put me in? No. You see, look, the believer during these tests might go through a lot of hardship, and intense pain, and difficulty and blood and sweat. Like how you think she wasn't exhausted and tired, going up those mountains as a new mother.

00:48:33 --> 00:48:45

But all of that hardship, and fatigue, and tiredness and labor and struggle and difficulty. All of that in Islam is called Sobald.

00:48:46 --> 00:49:29

And a person is rewarded for it, if he seeks his reward from Allah. So with every calamity and test that you go through, when you exercise patients and patients is to see that which is pleasing to Allah or saying that Allah who are in a garage, that's patients, then that is a moment of reward and purification for you. And then Ibrahim Ali Salaam is tested with the next test. And it is even more difficult than the first and that is when Allah Azza wa Jun commands him to take his son and go and slaughter him. You think that was an easy matter as well. But Ibrahim Ali Salam does not question Allah so shall he takes his son as he is all the way to hill the he reaches minute and puts his

00:49:29 --> 00:49:59

forehead first on the ground so that he doesn't see his face. Because if he saw his face, he might have aborted the mission. Because you would have felt sorry for him he would have seen that innocent look. So even that he didn't give room for himself to do and he turned him face down. And he actually began the process of slaughter. He was ready to see blood come out. And veins erupt. He was ready to see less. See the test. And he passed the test Allah

00:50:00 --> 00:50:03

Social calls out an angel calls out, consult Dr. Rowe.

00:50:05 --> 00:50:08

You have been true and honest to the dream that Allah showed you,

00:50:09 --> 00:50:20

which was this command, seeing the tests he went through, he did them all. And of course, there was pain and difficulty within them. But you want to see oh, wait to be let your back

00:50:21 --> 00:50:58

then that means you are supposed to adhere to all the commandments of Allah, and to embrace all the calamities that come in life. That's what will lead to be like your base. So now we've agreed, that will lead to the lack of by means that you are pleased with Allah is your Creator, your provider, the one who caused your life and caused your death and the one who decrees all your affairs and matters. And add to that, when you say it will lead to be let go of that. That means you have also accepted His commandments. Like what Ibrahim did, and accepted all the commandments

00:51:00 --> 00:51:10

of the obligations and of course, leaving off the prohibitions. Let's have a way to be left alone. And that's the first fundamental.

00:51:11 --> 00:51:21

Then the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us were built Islam Idina, I am pleased with Islam as my way of life, my religion.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:29

What does that mean? And why? Why is a Muslim pleased with Islam as his way of life?

00:51:31 --> 00:52:06

Because Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says in the Quran in Medina and Allah in Islam, the only accepted way of life in the only accepted religion to Allah is Islam. And Allah subhanahu wa taala said polyoma Akman Tula, come Dina come today which is the day of our offer. I completed your deen and Allah said well OB to law school Islam, Medina, and I am pleased with Islam as your way of life and your religion. Therefore the Muslim is pleased with Islam as his way of life because Allah is pleased with Islam as a way of life for mankind.

00:52:08 --> 00:52:21

So how can you not be pleased with what Allah is pleased with? If you are not pleased with what Allah is pleased with? Then you lose the first fundamental, which is lovely to be lacking a lot that

00:52:22 --> 00:53:06

all of you need to build Islam Idina? What does it mean? To be pleased with Islam as your religion? We know why. Because this is the most complete imperfect religion, and every religion before it has been distorted and has been changed. So it's no good anymore for mankind. It doesn't suit mankind anymore. The only thing that is befitting for mankind is Islam. Being pleased with Islam as your religion, meaning you are pleased with the laws and the commandments of Allah, you are pleased with that which Allah made halal. And you are pleased with it which Allah made haram and you are pleased with the obligations and the prohibitions, whether it's difficult upon you or not, whether you

00:53:06 --> 00:53:51

understand the obligations in the prohibitions in the halal and haram or not, you did that doesn't matter. You are pleased with all that which came from Allah azza wa jal in the Quran. And in the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, absolute full submission to the religion of Allah, even if it goes against your desire, or goes against what your parents say or what society has made as a standard among the people. You do not care. All you care is that it is found in the Quran and Sunnah to Nabi, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and therefore, I abide to it and I commit to it. If that's your attitude, then congratulations, you have fulfilled the second fundamental, which

00:53:51 --> 00:54:05

is, what will Islam Medina today my brothers and sisters in Islam, there are Muslims. And there are other people from other religions that are leaving faith and religion altogether. And heading towards atheism.

00:54:07 --> 00:54:43

Atheism is a belief in where God doesn't exist, there is no God. In fact, the other god is worship yourself. Follow your desire, do what you like, don't worry about the accountability of others. Religion is a matter that controls and scares the people and just live your life. That's what atheism calls to. The shape on loves that. So the shape arm partners with the evil of your soul to push this kind of belief into you. And as a result, people leave Islam because of this.

00:54:45 --> 00:54:55

People that leave Islam because of this, they are not pleased with Islam as their way of life. And then you ask these people why did they leave Islam for some say

00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

there are things in Islam that sound horrible that

00:55:00 --> 00:55:18

didn't make sense. And therefore Islam all of it in question and in doubt in my mind, for example, that we'll see. And these are the only they do exist among us. They say Islam condone slavery. How can Islam accept slavery? That's oppression.

00:55:19 --> 00:55:32

That's not the right religion. I'm not pleased with Islam as my Deen. How can this way of life, condone and accept that a person owns someone else? pays money and own someone.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:35

And this person belongs to him.

00:55:37 --> 00:55:49

What's his crookedness? What's this oppression? I leave Islam. Well hold on a quarter in nebula didn't understand didn't bother to understand why Islam can do the system of slavery.

00:55:51 --> 00:56:14

And you got another side women that are affected by feminist beliefs. And as a result, it is already widespread and put into their mind that Islam is a sexist religion, misogynistic religion. It prefers men over women. It gives the man more than the woman.

00:56:15 --> 00:56:38

His inheritance is more than the woman. In fact, they pull out one of the narrations and the teachings in the law of Islam that teaches the blood money of a man is 100 camels. And the blood money of a woman is 50 camels, meaning if a man is accidentally killed,

00:56:40 --> 00:56:52

he is 100 camels. The one who killed him accidentally must pay 100 camels. And if a woman is killed accidentally, the one of the Kilda has to pay Blood Money 50 camels, they say,

00:56:53 --> 00:57:30

look at the misogyny in that woman's blood is cheap. It's only worth 50 camels. But the blood of a man is expensive. It's valuable. It's worth 100 camels. Oh, okay. Let's leave Islam, then. How depressing is that? And they leave Islam not understanding anything. And since I brought these two examples to your attention, I'll explain them to just so that you can understand that if you don't understand everything. That doesn't mean that there is no explanation behind them. Let's explain this point of misogyny that people have left this man because of

00:57:33 --> 00:57:45

this ID of a blood of a man being 100 camels and a woman being 50 counts, pay attention. Pay attention, otherwise you won't understand nothing.

00:57:46 --> 00:57:54

When the man is accidentally killed, what's his blood money? How much is it 100 camels by

00:57:55 --> 00:57:56

who does it go to

00:57:57 --> 00:58:01

his family? It goes to his wife and children.

00:58:03 --> 00:58:12

When a woman is accidentally killed, what's her blood money 50. It goes to, to her husband to her children.

00:58:14 --> 00:58:37

You see how just this is? In that case there. It's not the fact that the blood of a man is 100 camels. It's the fact that now there's a woman in the house that needs help. So Islam said 100 camels there, the woman will benefit from it, she will have that in our pocket.

00:58:38 --> 00:59:06

And in the other side, the blood money of a woman is 50 camels. Because if she dies, most likely her male relatives will inherit. They already have jobs. They're stable. They're the ones that bring the income and spend upon their family so that only the 100 camels 50 is enough. So now we find out that 50 and 100 Wasn't the value put on the blood of the individual.

00:59:07 --> 00:59:10

Allahu Akbar, and people left Islam because of this point,

00:59:12 --> 00:59:59

had the ship on his working day and night. And in the example I gave you of slavery. And this by far is a big discussion. I don't know whether you're aware of this matter or not, but it's generating big discussion in the West. And it's an Islam, so called to them it's being challenged concerning this matter. Let me explain to you I'll explain it in very simple terms and words so you can understand how just the slavery system in Islam is, and all of this in hope that we strengthen our b2b listener Medina so that you can see why you're supposed to embrace the fact that you are pleased with Islam as your deen no one gets it right other than Allah azza wa jal full of wisdom and

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

knowledge behind it.

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

As you know, in the past,

01:00:03 --> 01:00:43

forms of slavery were many. One of the forms of slavery was that if you owed me money, and you didn't pay me on time, I take you as a slave. While you didn't pay me on time, I'm going to take you, you now I own you. And it will haunt us. That's an oppressive form of slavery, other forms of slavery was in war, the Muslims, and the disbelievers go to all. Once the Muslims are victorious over the disbelievers, they will take whoever is left of them of hostages and their women and their children, and now they are slaves and they are divided among the Muslim community. Here, take this and you take this and you take that like this.

01:00:47 --> 01:01:13

Islam came and abolished and removed all the oppressive forms of slavery. So Islam came and condemned, that if someone owes you money, you're not allowed to take him as a slave not allowed. And Islam left only one form of slavery. And that is the sleeve of the war, the captive during a war. And I tell you how perfectly justices watch this.

01:01:14 --> 01:01:59

You know, in the past, when the disbelievers used to come out, to find the Muslims, they used to come out with a woman and their children. And they used to come out with their wealth and their treasures. And their livestock. They used to come out with everything. Why did they used to do that? Because when the disbelievers are facing the believers, they might get scared if they're starting to get destroyed. So all they have to do is look behind, see their woman, their children and their property. And so you know, where he fighting for that we're going to run away. And they somewhat get motivated and inspired to continue to fight the Muslims. Were fighting for this. We brought it all

01:01:59 --> 01:02:12

out with us. We're fighting for this war. It doesn't make sense now to turn, run, run, where were we going to run? Right? So they would bring everyone with them, so that an employee inspires them and motivates them to continue to

01:02:14 --> 01:02:27

fight. The woman, the woman that used to come out with the disbelievers used to dress well. They used to dress well. Why? You know why

01:02:28 --> 01:02:38

these women were prepared and ready to hand themselves over to the Muslims. How, listen, listen, listen, listen and understand the wisdom.

01:02:40 --> 01:02:46

When the disbelievers the disbelieving army is annihilated and killed and destroyed,

01:02:48 --> 01:03:05

his women are standing now. Now the question is, where are they going to go? You told me that the the West that is bringing out these doubts tell me what are they gonna go? Wait, wait, the men are killed. Their husbands, their brothers, their fathers or their laying in front of them killed?

01:03:06 --> 01:03:08

When you where do you want them to go?

01:03:09 --> 01:03:35

So Allah social with his mercy and compassion, commanded the believers take them because there is no one to look after them. Now. If they turn and go back to their land, they are going to die. There is no one to spend on them. No one to bring them food, no one to shelter them no one to clothe them because that's the man's responsibility. So they're going to perish and back

01:03:36 --> 01:03:45

so the woman used to come dress because if they know that if all men from our tribe are dead, we're ready to go willingly.

01:03:47 --> 01:03:49

Otherwise work you want to turn the golf you're gonna die.

01:03:50 --> 01:04:33

And then on top of all of this, and Islam would say a square No Come have a look on. These sleeves that you take are like your brothers, Jana whom Allah Who data a de con, it is Allah who gave you authority and ownership over them from an cannula who are Han philleo Prime Homina upon, if you have one of these leaves, feed him from that which you eat, clothe him from that which you call him drink from that which you drink, and do not overwork them and burden them with work and labor. And if you were to give them work, that is more than they can bet. Are you do go and help them. Sure.

01:04:34 --> 01:04:43

What is this kind of system? Heather one more I share this with you in the intention that we're Bill Islami Dina, the second fundamental in Islam is strengthened.

01:04:45 --> 01:04:58

And this is knowledge that is needed. Because people have made the decision to leave Islam based on this fact they couldn't get their heads around it. How can a religion accept slavery?

01:04:59 --> 01:05:00


01:05:00 --> 01:05:24

This is what we find out. When there be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in addition to all this would recommend freeing slaves. And how many Hadith do we know about the virtue of freeing a slave? Freeing a slave in Islam is your freedom from the fire, as in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, with every limb of the sleeve you free, it's a freedom of your limb from the hellfire.

01:05:26 --> 01:05:30

When the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see anyone who had a sleeve go.

01:05:31 --> 01:05:39

And he nurtured her upon Islam and raised upon good manners and ethics and morals. And then he freed her and married her,

01:05:40 --> 01:05:45

earns two times the reward should see that.

01:05:47 --> 01:05:50

So the idea is Islam is a perfect way of life.

01:05:51 --> 01:06:16

And this is why Ibrahim alayhis salam His attitude was if called Hola Hola, Boo slim corner slumped any time hola Satyam submit to any command he would submit to the Lord of the worlds with no question and no hesitation whatsoever. If you can't understand something in Islam and the wisdom and the logic behind it, then blame the deficiency of your intellect and not the perfection of Islam and the deen of Allah. You know,

01:06:18 --> 01:07:05

some people, some woman can't get their head around the dress code of a woman. Why is it like this in Islam? Why does a woman have to dress and cover from top to bottom and cover her hair? And wear loose clothing? And not allowed to put perfume and walk out? Why? Why can I put makeup and walk out? Why? And then there's a question coming especially from young woman of today's day and age is that have been destroyed by social media? Right? Because social media has all fell further. You jump from one platform to another so you'll see women and nakedness and looseness and shamelessness and vulgarity or whatever you like.

01:07:07 --> 01:07:20

And each one perfect herself more than the other. And you think a young Muslim woman being exposed to this every single day is not going to question and hijab in Islam.

01:07:21 --> 01:07:51

Look at these women. Look at these influences. They've made a name for themselves. Or they collaborate with other businesses. They make money. They invited the restaurants, they enjoy this world. They live through their looks and their appearance. And I'm here wearing all this type of clothing, sitting at home, earning nothing and not enjoying my life. What a fitna what a fitna.

01:07:53 --> 01:08:01

It is the responsibility of every single father and brother that he look after the woman folk in his house

01:08:03 --> 01:08:23

and make sure that they are not exposed to this filth and this damage. Because every glance and every look is an opportunity in where our sisters lose. What bill is slamming dinner. You lose the commitment upon Islam as being a way of life.

01:08:26 --> 01:08:36

So we ask Allah azza wa jal to see our Eman and our Islam and to see our brothers and our sisters from Alphington that are apparent and that are inwards.

01:08:38 --> 01:08:40

I read to a beautiful AI in the Quran.

01:08:41 --> 01:08:45

It This by far is the best ai

01:08:46 --> 01:09:13

i love this idea so much when it comes to explaining this matter of what Allah legislates and we're supposed to submit to it. Please listen to it with attentive ear because this is Allah's word. Allah azza wa jal he said, Yeah, you have Lavina Amano. Ofu Bill Good. Well, let's look on the HEMA to an iron. It lemma Utoya Alikum aroma Hindus say Do unto home in hola como mejor

01:09:14 --> 01:09:59

Wallahi Yanni. In a way, you're smiling when you read this ayah I'll share with you how Allah azza wa jal says, Oh you who believe fulfill your obligations, fulfill obligations are hidden. Let likoma Hema to Allah and then Allah azza wa jal says livestock has been made halal for you. You want to slaughter a sheep and eat a Talon? You want to slaughter come home and eat at the Talon livestock. Then he said in lemma you plan equal except what I will tell you of what haram livestock is. So in the next day, Allah azza wa jal will say that the livestock that has died over livestock that fell from a cliff over livestock that was hit by another

01:10:00 --> 01:10:35

Sheep are another goat and as a result he died. That type of livestock is haram. You're not allowed to eat. What's this? Then he says, Allah Yura Mohindra site, then he says, want to hold them. And if you're wearing a harem, you're not allowed to hunt hunted animals. You're not allowed to go after a rabbit and shoot it with the speed or go after an emu and shoot it with a spear and eat it. Now, what's this? At the end Allah says, in Allah who may lead Allah legislates whatever he wants

01:10:37 --> 01:10:58

it to be the AAA is telling you, this is halal. This is haram, don't do that, when you're in a haram don't have this, but you can eat this but you can't lose. Did it just did it just being recited unto us. And Allah says at the end, if you have any problem with all this, then you should know in Allahu

01:10:59 --> 01:11:13

Allah, legislature whatever he wants, that's the answer to every law and command that you can't get your head around. Just remind yourself of the last part of this first, little man either.

01:11:14 --> 01:11:41

If you can't get your head around, something, just say to yourself in the law who may already have because he's your he's your Lord. And he's the one who created you. He provides for you. He causes your life your death, you get into your heart doesn't beat except by His permission. Every blessing you have in life is because of him. Your eyes only opened and closed right now because of him. Your blood is flowing through your veins and arteries only through his permission.

01:11:44 --> 01:11:53

Therefore, he is in the perfect position to legislate whatever he wants. And you have to follow.

01:11:54 --> 01:12:15

Follow. You don't want to follow no problem. Allah azza wa jal is patient, he will not punish you right away. He'll give you time, maybe some sense will be knocked back into your head, so that you can understand I need to follow this and nothing else. But if not, and you die upon that state of disbelief, what's too late

01:12:16 --> 01:12:20

will lead to be left out of bed. What will Islam Medina

01:12:21 --> 01:12:23

and my brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:12:25 --> 01:12:44

I share with you the final matter. So that we can conclude will be Muhammad sallallahu alayhi, wa salam and Obeah that's the third fundamental. The third fundamental, is to be pleased that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is your prophet.

01:12:46 --> 01:13:25

And what does that mean? What does it mean to be pleased that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is your prophet? Listen carefully. Allah azza wa jal, he says, and maybe you only mean I mean, I'm fussy him that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has more right over the believers then their own self. That's an area in the Quran. You know what that means? That means you must love him more than you love yourself. If you truly are pleased with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as your prophet, then you have to love him more than you love your own self. So if you're knifes is telling you something, well, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has instructed you with something that

01:13:25 --> 01:13:39

contradicts what your neffs wants, you have to let go of what you want. And you have to go ahead with that which he instructed then and only you are perfecting. What do you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an Obeah

01:13:40 --> 01:13:44

right for example, the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us the times of the prayer.

01:13:45 --> 01:13:53

And in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who taught us that Salah till Fraser is when

01:13:54 --> 01:14:27

an official Saudi is when the light in the horizon shines horizontally. So first there's a vertical white line, then there's a horizontal white line and it continues to expand. At the very moment when there is a white horizontal line across the horizon, and Fisher has entered. That is the time in which in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam instructs us to begin to start praying solid vision. And he said the ends at sunrise. So now, now, you're sleeping.

01:14:29 --> 01:14:59

If you're sleeping, and you're comfortable, your body desires to sleep. It desires to relax, it finds its comfort on the pillow. And then you know, that interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants from you to get up and pray. But you prefer what your body desired a love of resting comfort and sleep. And you prefer that over getting up and praying on time. You have deficiency in what people have

01:15:00 --> 01:15:05

Medina, Allahu Allah, he was eliminated here. Very simple. But if you get up

01:15:07 --> 01:15:23

and you pray, and then you can do what you like afterwards, now you are perfecting what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and maybe that will be a great sign and a clear sign that you truly have accepted the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as being your Prophet

01:15:24 --> 01:15:50

now, and so you must OBEY HIM before anyone and follow him before anyone else. And he's your role model and your influence before anyone else. And so being pleased with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as your profit also means that you are content with all his commands and prohibitions with the way he lived with the decisions he took, you are pleased with his friends, you are pleased with the woman he married, and that they are your mothers.

01:15:51 --> 01:15:55

And it also means that you believe Him in everything that he uttered. And he said,

01:15:56 --> 01:16:42

and that you worship Allah azza wa jal, only in a manner that he thought, and you don't introduce anything else to that. This is what it means to embrace that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is your prophet. And if that's the case, and you have embraced and achieved these three matters, then such a person has passed the test in this life and in the afterlife. And such a person as we said, in the VSA, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, it is upon Allah azza wa jal that he pleased this person on the day of judgment by admitting him into the Paradise, showering him with gifts and enjoyment in the Paradise and he sees Allah azza wa jal, and he remains in the Paradise forever. no sickness, no

01:16:42 --> 01:16:53

old age, no death, no worry, no pain, no stress, no nothing. How can Allah Allah He knew where that's what it means that Allah azza wa jal will please disperse it.

01:16:54 --> 01:17:36

Wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned many, many benefits concerning these matters. about embracing these three facts in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Anyone who embraces the three fundamentals letter joven nebbia, he had their own agenda, I guarantee that I will I will take him by his hand until I admit him into the paradise. When the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said worship at the whole Jana, the paradise becomes mandatory for him. When the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Angela hoomin, who then in the midst of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said anyone who embraces the three fundamentals, Allah who would save him, save him from oppression, from fit and

01:17:36 --> 01:18:06

from difficulty from calamity and so on, or he makes them a source and a means of reward and purification for him. And finally, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said facut Asaba hoccleve Cotton, amen. You have hit the bull's eye of iman, right in the core of Eman is to embrace these three realities. And I direct your attention to one sunnah so that you don't skip and miss this one. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

01:18:07 --> 01:18:09

anyone who hears the other end

01:18:10 --> 01:18:59

and says with the will has done what he says. And then he says, what Anna? I shall do unless Illa Illa Maha hula actually killer wonder Mohammed Abdullah who was sudo all the way to be like your bad will be Mohammed in Libya. What will Islam Medina if you said this after that all feel Allah who his sins are wiped away and forgiven. He is purified and cleansed from his sins and wrongdoings and transgression Allahu Akbar and the correct time to say this would be to say it after the more I've been says a shadow Allah Illa Illa shadow under Muhammad Rasulullah once he says the tour shadow, then you say one eye shadow Leila Hey Lamar, they will actually calahonda Muhammad Abdul Rasul Allah

01:18:59 --> 01:19:38

to Allah Harada will have a dinner via will Islam Medina, forgiven for all your sins, such a huge and a great word. We ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us life upon this word, and that he caused our death upon La Ilaha illa Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our gathering to forgive our sins and our shortcomings. We ask him subhanho wa Taala to admit us into the highest levels of the paradise man, Naveen, also deeply know shahada, it was solid in what has to know let it go. A few call will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve and protect our email and to preserve our children and their children. While ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bestow upon us His mercy and His

01:19:38 --> 01:19:58

acceptance and his forgiveness and His compassion and gentleness and kindness. And we asked him subhanho wa Taala that he saved us from His anger and his punishment and the Hellfire in our New Delhi, Kolkata, Raleigh or sallahu wa salam O Allah, Allah, Allah and Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine was your circum Allah who say Allah, Allah
