Smilla Rahmanir Rahim

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

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and Hungary the Hamden cathedral of Yuba Mubarak and fie

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

Salawat to lay was set up mobile Allah and begin a mean by Ali he was Hobie edge Mandarin

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

a Ma Ba barn we come to Hadith

00:00:23 --> 00:00:33

19 and 20 today because they are, for the most part dealing with the same thing or kind of like the same topic which is the importance of time.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:38

And the first hadith is the authentic hadith in which as Zubair

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

Zubayr

00:00:41 --> 00:01:06

had been at the rod the align, who said that people came to complain to the companion and this had been nomadic about what was going on, and what they were suffering from in regards to the oppression of one of the great tyrants of Ellis lamb who lived during the time of some of the companions.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:17

So they came to complain to Ansible nomadic for advice about what was happening with Gadge and Hijazi blue use of photography

00:01:19 --> 00:01:28

a personality in Al Islam that Islam didn't see the likes of him after he left the scene level min Allah Mayas to him.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:53

So he killed a number of the companions, he threatened other companions he was a problem. His sword was unsheathed on the community. He didn't care if you were a woman, he didn't care if you were old, even care what your position was. If he didn't like what you were doing, a judge would chop your head off.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

So they went to the companion and is to complain

00:01:59 --> 00:02:06

and is told them a tremendous Hadith and he says Allah Allah read the Allah I know that the Prophet says Allah when he was setting them

00:02:08 --> 00:02:19

in the hole my Yeti I Nick clumsy man on in our levy bow those Shadow Men who had telco or a backhoe submitted to whom in a BV come.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:31

He said it's Bureau for in Noho la yet Tia clumsy man, you people need to be patient with what you're dealing with from a hijab and the fitna,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:46

whatever fitting in you're dealing with like this hijab judge, be patient with it. Don't make kotoge Don't fight against them, don't revolt against them. Don't raise arms against him, instead be patient.

00:02:48 --> 00:03:20

Because there's never a time except that the time that comes after it is worse than the time that preceded it. He said I heard that from your Nebby. And the reason why he said I heard that from your Nibi is so that the people would appreciate this is not my cannon. I'm not telling you to be patient and not to make a horrible joke or revolt against him. Rasul Allah told you don't do that. So pay attention to what I'm telling you just be patient with what's going on.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:52

This hadith of was Sunni valleys statements sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are statements that today, a lot of the Shabaab from the Muslims they want to feel this hadith behind the backs because they think that they're superheroes and they think that they love Alice lamb more than the companions. And they think that they are braver than the Companions more intelligent than the companions. So when you see the leaders of today who are oppressive, and they're not like hijabs in many instances,

00:03:54 --> 00:03:58

they want to fight against the leaders and rebel against elitist today.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:20

The advice of Ennis bumalik back then is the advice for the Shabaab today. Don't make whole Rouge against the leaders of the Muslims. So this hadith, when it goes to show that with the passing of time each year that passes by, from one generation to the next generation,

00:04:21 --> 00:04:49

the life becomes more difficult for the people of Allah slam, those people are practicing especially at a moral bar. You will look at if you're practicing a slam you will looked at as being stranger and stranger and stranger. So during this time right now for person is really trying to practice them a man or woman a youngster. Then during this time, the people are going to look at you as something is wrong with you.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:59

During the time of Prophet Muhammad, some of the community they they looked at the Companions as something's wrong with these people. But as time moved on

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

And it became worse and worse. The loading of the people with SNAM became a shed.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:47

So to have patients is easier to have suburb is easier than making the horror watch. And the benefit of having Sobor is better than making the horror watch because what happened is that when some of the people went against a judge, and judge killed a lot of the people, and from them were companions, he said to the door of Abu Bakar Sadiq. If you don't come when I tell you to come to my measures, I'll come in, I drag you by your hair in the street, I'll drag you and you will be kicking

00:05:47 --> 00:06:17

your legs. Nobody should say that to me woman here. No one should say that. But her judge not only set it to a woman, but he said it to the daughter of Abu Bakar. He would think that the person was saying that's the daughter of Abu Bakar her sister is Rasul Allah his wife, how can you even say something like to like that? He didn't care. So the Hadith shows that every year, every Zemon, the one that comes after it is worse than the one that preceded it.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:23

That's the statement of the Prophet salallahu. It he was it was Senator

00:06:24 --> 00:06:53

want to make a few points that very important about this hadith and then move on to the next Hadith and that is concerning this hadith and may be said that historically, if you look at the history of Islam, it wasn't always the case that every year that went and came after the previous year was worse than the one that went before sometimes we had in the history of Islam with this year was very bad. So according to the Hadith, the next year should be worse.

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

But, in fact, the next year was better.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:32

Like in the case of a judge, when her judge was at his hate after him after him Kane, the great scholar of Islam, the Khalifa Armando Amon Abdulaziz and remember, even Abdulazeez his era and his lifetime was better than the time of an hijas the fitna was less knowledge was more security for the Muslims was better, life was better. So can we say that the Hadith of the Prophet was incorrect sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can say that.

00:07:33 --> 00:08:08

From the Hadith we know that the de Zhao when he comes, he's the biggest fitna for Benny Adam. So when he comes he is going to fill the whole world up and fitna and drama. So you would think that the year that come after him should be worse than that. But and when the job came, but he said no money and came after the job, the mind became after the job. And when the mind becomes when a sibling or money in comes, the MACD is going to fill the world up with justice, the same way it was

00:08:08 --> 00:08:37

filled up with oppression. So if the man did came today, for an example, all of the oppression in the world today, with what's happening in Africa with what's happening in the Muslim world, all of the volume that people are putting on other people, these countries, the MACD is going to rectify all of this. So during the time of a digital, there was a lot of fitna, so according to this hadith, the time that comes after it, and should be worse than him. But that wasn't the case, the time of E

00:08:37 --> 00:08:51

Sibongile. Mme is going to be opulence. People going to be able to eat fruit, and then from the magnificent size of the rain of the fruit. They make houses out of what they ate the fruit from.

00:08:52 --> 00:09:24

The rain is going to come crops, it's going to be money. People are going to have safety and security. Ella SNAM is going to spread that to Nigeria is going to be on the scene at that time. So how do we understand that? We say anytime you hear, and I love the Quran, or an authentic hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it goes against and it conflicts with the walker which you see. And you have to know you have to know that you can never take the ayat of the Quran or the

00:09:24 --> 00:09:54

Hadith and say, something's wrong with the iron or the Hadith. You have to say something's wrong with the way you're understanding. Because what the Prophet said is the truth so Allah Allah, what do you say to them? And there's always a plausible explanation. So how is it that the time of Irma bin Abdulaziz was better than the time of an hijab? And it came after the time of hijab? The hadith in the words of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He's talking about what is the majority of the

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

case? Sometimes you're going to have exceptions but general

00:10:00 --> 00:10:13

only speaking, the time that comes after more times than not, is worse than the time that went before. But some cases here in their individual cases that are few, you can't come and say this hadith is wrong.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:34

The words of the prophet is the truth. We look at the great scholarship on Islam Ibn Taymiyyah. He said that from his observation from what it's supposed to be, he said that the people of the Sunnah are the most knowledgeable people about Allah and the people of the Sunnah are the Most Merciful people to creation.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:53

Was he lying when he said that? Because right now we see some people of the Sunnah are not merciful to the people of creation. They have some of the roughest, toughest people towards the people of the creation, even towards the people of knowledge, the person dies, and they don't agree with that person. It says a deviant

00:10:54 --> 00:11:01

was it blue Tamia making a mistake? No, his words are generally speaking that's how it is. Well, that's how it's supposed to be.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:15

So that's the first thing about this hadith. The second thing about that even it goes to show the importance of returning the affairs to the scholars of Allah Stan, that people went to NSC pneumatic.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:38

When there's a fitna about COVID. When there's a fitna about drama between the Muslims with the US fitna fighting this that don't go to any armor bucket and see it of the people don't go to the regular people that ask them about vaccines and fitna don't go to them. You have to go to people who know what they're talking about.

00:11:39 --> 00:12:11

So refer the affairs to those people who have knowledge. That's what the self we're upon. Today, we have a situation where youngsters will sit together, and they will make to creative people to do have people they will decide amongst themselves, who's brave, who's worthy, who's not worthy, what the next move should be. And they're not qualified to do that. They're not competent to do that. But amongst themselves, they will swear that they are the people for the job. If you find yourself

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

amongst people like that, you have to run away, there's a problem with them, and there's a danger. And there's a price to pay if you get caught out like that. So the idea is talking about time, the importance of time.

00:12:26 --> 00:12:59

There is never as a man, except that there's a man that comes after it is worse than the one that preceded it. So for you brothers, this is the worst time to be a youngster. So difficult time. This is the worst time to be unmarried right now is the worst time to be in the university right now, in terms of fitna in terms of the price in terms of whatever, this COVID Right now, have you seen a fitting in your life, similar to COVID It's probably the biggest fit that we've had to deal with

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

since we've been alive.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:29

And we still don't know which way the COVID situation is going is there gonna be another knock down? How many people who we know have died from this COVID be able to drop in left, right and center who we know. And then while this serious situation is taking place, we have those people giving opinions and they don't deserve and they don't have the right to give a ping is a fitna and the past and the beginning of Islam. The Prophet would ask a question so Allah Allah who it was sending them, and he

00:13:29 --> 00:13:40

would say to the people tell me about this thing of that thing quizzing them. Everybody would be quiet. Everybody would be quiet. Right now if you said to someone,

00:13:41 --> 00:13:45

Bitcoin what is the root of the big point? I know it's haram.

00:13:46 --> 00:14:00

Do you know what Bitcoin is? Now? I don't know what it is to sounds like it's haram. That's what we're doing dealing with today. People given flicked was and they're not those people, before the people went and taught that companions.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:19

And a lot of times they would know the answer, but they left it for someone else. That's the level of not wanting that responsibility of being wrong, or being in a position of leadership. Right now, the way life is. Everybody wants to be a leader. Everybody wants to be acknowledged and recognize.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:29

So the time that we live in right now is a time of fitna a supper during this time as it relates to the Imams.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:59

It is a tough is easier, although it may be difficult, relatively silly bacon is easier to make Rouge because if you revolt against those rulers, it's going to be a big problem. And some of the righteous people of this ummah, they suffered the result of that at the hands of Elijah blue USofA Theca feet. So the issue is about time and knowing what time you live in and the reality of the time. Which brings us to the next turn.

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

This ID

00:15:01 --> 00:15:23

Abdullah Abdullah bass, may Allahu taala. Be pleased with him. He said that the Nabhi use Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said in authentic hadith, but let me make give this example. Let me give this example, about the issue of one time is worse than the one that comes after it. And worse and worse and worse, generally speaking.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:58

There's a hadith that the Nibi told us in a way to fit in a tea Benny Israa eel candidate for Nisa, the first fitna, that was a problem for Benny asstra il, Allah guided them and they came out of Egypt. And Allah gave them NBM prophets and they got close to a lot and the civilization grew, and they had protection and they were close to Allah, and Allah will blessing them with all kinds of things. And then the fifth, Nick Cain, he said the first fitna, Benissa eel was the fitna that they

00:15:58 --> 00:16:02

had with the women, then women started doing a lot of things.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:11

So as time went on, it got worse and worse and worse. And now we're religion. We're going to follow Benny and Surah Al in everything that they do.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:45

There was a time when in lsmw, you wouldn't find a Muslim woman smoking cigarettes. Now, if she smoked cigarettes, she smoked cigarettes when no one could see her. She's a real smoker. She was smoke cigarettes when no one can see as time went on, and it got worse and worse and worse. And then those women and parts of the Muslim world where we come from in the Arab world, other than that, the woman came outside, and she started smoking. But it was the one who didn't have she didn't have

00:16:45 --> 00:16:46

hijab.

00:16:47 --> 00:17:03

She didn't have a jacket, you didn't see a Muslim woman wearing a short dress, you can see a legs, not wearing he died. During the time of the Prophet those Muslim women dressed and they covered themselves. As time went on, that hijab begin to disappear and shrink and change.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:05

Now make sure if smoking.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:24

So the one who was smoke outside was the one who didn't have any deem. And then it got worse and worse, it became acceptable. So now if you see it in the restaurant and public, smoking shisha smoking cigarettes, or smoking a pipe or cigar, no one's gonna say anything, because that's a business.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:59

Time kept going on until now. Now you'll see the Muslim woman with the hijab smoking cigarettes, because it happened with one wears hijab, she was smoking inside, and the one without hijab was smoke outside. Now the one who has a job who was hiding, now she's outside and she's smoking. That's what this hadith is talking about. You didn't see people a long time ago, not praying, well known in the community amongst relatives and people, friends, neighbors, for them doesn't pray. You didn't

00:17:59 --> 00:18:18

find that before. There could have been people were not praying, but it was concealed and hidden. Now, it's common and it's normal and acceptable, that we have relatives and friends who don't pray from our family. It's acceptable, because of the time that we're living in.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:35

So if you're giving down with Allah, you have to understand that you can't hold everybody to the same standard of that time you have to know your time. But that's the meaning of the Hadith. It gets worse and worse and worse for the most part. Sometimes there's some exceptions.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:50

I'd even my beloved number bass Rasul Allah says, Allah, Allah, why do you sell them, take advantage of five things before five things. Take advantage of your life before you die.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:58

Take advantage of the time you live in. You are alive, everybody right now alone, you are alive.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:11

Take advantage of your life while you're living. Take advantage after that of your good health, before you become sick.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:33

Take advantage of your free time. You're not as busy right now. Take advantage of it before you get busy. So when COVID had happened, and we want to lock down when we were at home, and we had time on our hands, some people just wasted time by being on a PlayStation for 678 hours a day.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:57

Person is into soccer isn't the American football and basketball. So he watches the game and a 10 game takes four hours of wasted time. In that four hour period, he could have been studying his religion. He could have been studying for his exam. He could have been studying or doing something productive, but he's just wasting time. When he had time on his hand.

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

He said

00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

take time and advantage of your youth before you become old.

00:20:07 --> 00:20:26

And take advantage of your life before you die. Take advantage of your life before you die. That hadith is similar to the first Hadith as it relates to the whole issue of the whole issue of an individual.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:58

Knowing the value of time knowing the value, how important time is, some people have no concept of time. Some people really have a good concept of time, and they take care of it. But most people for the most part, we're not taking care of the time, the way it needs to be taken care of. Because the day will come when a person will be regretful for wasting time. And that day regret is not going to benefit him. It's like the child who gets in trouble. And then the child comes in, he says to his

00:20:58 --> 00:21:29

mother, I am sorry, it's too late to be sorry, you should have been sorry before that, when you had a chance to make it right. So five things take advantage of five things before it's fine. Take advantage of your life before you die. Take advantage of good health before you become sick. Take advantage of having free time before you become busy. Take advantage of your youth before you get oh, and take advantage of having money.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:46

Take advantage of having some wealth before you don't have any wealth. The Syrian refugees when they will live in in Syria, and they had jobs and they had homes and they were having a salary and income at one time.

00:21:47 --> 00:22:15

It was that time that you start spinning because the time may come where you don't have that money, something that's going to happen. The days they go up and down one year you have money the next day you don't have money the next year. One year you have good health next year you don't have good health. One year you alive the next year you're dead. That's reality. That's the nature of life. So they came in they asked the Prophet a man. Yeah, I'd also like give me a more either give me some

00:22:15 --> 00:22:47

advice. So the Prophet gave him a mole either. Amar either like the man, he's going to give an exhortation a warning to the people. So he told them these words from his July man and kill him. His Joanna Kellem wisdom for Sula is Rahim. So he told that man, and he told everybody else take advantage of five things before five things happened to you. And he mentioned these five things. Now each one of these five things and 20 is a whole but in and of itself. We don't have time for that.

00:22:47 --> 00:23:19

In this darkness we put in both of these Hadith together to make it so that we'll have a third of the book to explain the Shala just 10 more a hadith or something like that. So we are on Hadith number 30. Now, we'll finish Hadith 30 today with these two Hadith, but the point is these five things they have a lot that can be said, as it relates to take advantage of your life before your death. This book that we're dealing with right now the author of the book is dead.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:22

He died during this COVID

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

No one thought he was going to die. No one expected him to die. But he's dead right now.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

The shift it hasn't 100.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:41

And how many people we know people from amongst us we know people were dead. We didn't expect them to die their gun now.

00:23:43 --> 00:24:05

And they can say I wish I want to do more. But they have to leave things behind in a way of the prayers that they did in the way of the sadaqa that they did in the way of the dollar that they did in the way of the good deeds and the bad debt. So concerning this issue of taking advantage of death or your life before your death.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:39

A few things we want to mention here as a way of advice you brothers, the best of Allah's creation as it relates to the human beings is Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Rasul Allah He died as everybody knows, there are some people from our Ummah, who reject that we don't know what kind of Islam that is. But we know that Rasul Allah has died, and Allah loves him more than he loves any other human being and that's Allah, sunnah. And every single human being from Adam, until the

00:24:39 --> 00:24:55

last human being that's going to live well Maija Allah the beschrieben Catholica, a hold of a metaphor human Kali Don Yamaha Mohamed, we never created any human being before you and that human being lived forever.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

You're going to die. Do they think that they're going to live forever?

00:25:01 --> 00:25:36

Allah told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Nikka, Mejia it, were in Noho Mejia tomb. Yeah, Mohammed, you're going to die. But the verb of the noun that's used is You're dead now, in the comedian, the meat is the one who's dead right now. You are hate living. The one who was dead is made. That's what that means. That's a noun, you're dead. Allah use that verb, that noun to tell him he's going to die. But the noun actually means you're dead. So in reality, I'm a dead man talking.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:55

Death is coming to me. When where, how, I don't know. Wallahi. This may be the last drink of water that I intend to drink. Maybe I will. Maybe I won't. The last time you came down the stairs in your house. You're not going back up those stairs again. You're not opening up that door again.

00:25:58 --> 00:26:30

You are dead man sitting there. And that's a dead man eating his food. And that's a dead man going into Morrison's right now. In the committed, we're in a homemade tune, you're going to die or you're dead. And all of them are going to die. Then you're going to return to Elijah. So Rasul Allah, the Most Beloved of Allah's creation dies Allah Allah when he was setting up, everybody is going to die it is the ultimate reality. Take advantage of your life before you die.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:53

Relax the question about Rasul Allah, Mata Aquila, and Caleb to mana aka become F Muhammad, were to die. When he dies, if he dies, are you people gonna really lose your religion and turn back. So the point here is, everybody is going to die.

00:26:55 --> 00:27:10

But the strange thing is that the majority of the people don't act as if they believe that because we are persistent in doing things that if you know you're going to die, don't do that thing.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:28

So what happens during this COVID People die from far away, we don't know they're dying every day, and we keep doing what we're doing. But when someone dies close to you, that's when you say man, death is close, I can't believe that man died.

00:27:29 --> 00:27:36

If he died, that's a deal about my mortality that's assigned to us.

00:27:38 --> 00:28:12

But you don't have to wait to the person who's next to you the one who you know die. So anybody you lost your mother, you lost your father, you know someone close to you a neighbor relative, you are affected by that. But when other people die does die, they die and I know theoretically that they are dying, but it should be knowledge that is empirical based upon experience, based upon tentativa face based upon facts, we are all going to die. So in regards to the issue of death, nobody lives so

00:28:12 --> 00:28:49

why would Eliza gel mention all of those is of the Quran to bring the point home to the mind of the one who was intelligent. He said in the Quran, Kullu che in Halleck in our choco everything will be destroyed everything is going to die everything except Allah the face of Allah. He said in the Quran Coloman la have fan while your car watch Hora Baker volu jewelry will cram every body on this earth, everything, every animal, everything is going to perish. And the only thing that's going to remain

00:28:49 --> 00:29:27

is the face of Allah azza wa jal called on Epson the Echo to note, every human being will die again and 20. The question is, if the person knows he's going to die, why not make Toba? Why not try to be a better person? Why not avoid arrogance ignorant? Why not avoid oppression, but the people are gonna flop? And I don't see here talking down to anybody here. That is the condition of most of us. Until death comes to you. And that's another problem. That when the death comes to you, most people

00:29:27 --> 00:29:34

are not going to be ready for it. Everybody's going to die, no doubt, and you don't know what's going to happen.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:49

So you would think that Benny Adam, he's going to make preparations, man, I can die at any moment. I'm not getting caught out doing this. I get caught out by Allah and I'm doing this and I gotta face the music.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:59

He's going to change his life, but because we believe we're going to keep living. So the Prophet told the people don't spin you

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

A day as if you're going to see tomorrow, Allah wakes you up in the morning time, don't act as if you're going to see Friday.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:43

Obviously, when you make plans, you say Inshallah, because you don't really know, but in terms of living your life, living really living your life, the person lives his life. I'm going to die. And it's inevitable. And I don't know when it's going to happen, so I have to be prepared. So he gave us those ayat, he mentioned subhanho wa taala, with Toby uma Uzi La La Coleman, Rubicam, main company, and yet I mean company and yet, I dabble but that 10 went to light touch, touch to Sharon, follow

00:30:43 --> 00:30:52

what Allah revealed to you follow the Quran, follow the Sunnah do Halal stay forever haram. Do the Baghdad follow what Allah told you to do?

00:30:54 --> 00:31:01

Before death comes to you and you're not ready. And most people are not going to be ready.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:30

This one death came to him. And he was in the middle of doing something. Death came to him. He was building his house. Death came to him. He was praying preparing to get married. Death came to that one. He was going to do the exam. Death came to that one. He was going to do something but it came in when he was unawares and it came everybody's going to die. Death is going to come to most people and they're not ready.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:36

Another issue about death is he nobody knows where he's going to die.

00:31:37 --> 00:32:11

When my kids have enough soon, the eight out of them to move. No knifes knows where he's going to die. That one died in his mother's house. That one died in the auditorium at the school, that one die on Coventry roll woke up in the morning and he died on Coventry roll that one over there die because he was eating at McDonald's or somewhere and he choked and he died. That one die because his cousin stabbed them in killed them. That one die because he fell off the rail and fell over he went

00:32:11 --> 00:32:17

to city center and was coming down the escalator and slipped and fell down the escalator and he died.

00:32:19 --> 00:32:33

Everybody doesn't know when it's going to happen. So the Prophet of Islam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conducted himself and he existed and he lived in a way that showed he understood that.

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

So you didn't find him playing cards wasting time. You found him doing things to relax and to have recreation. You found him smiling at the proper time in a proper way. But you never found him watching a football game for four hours, four hours.

00:32:55 --> 00:33:29

Because those four hours, it's part of his life. They're not coming back. Don't get it wrong. And I'm not saying people can't be happy and people can't celebrate. russula showed us there it was Sula played with his children Rasul Allah had wives Salah what he was sending me had children, he had children. He enjoy nice things in life. He enjoyed cool water. Someone who likes watermelon, nothing wrong with eating a watermelon. Nothing's wrong with dressing. Nice. Nothing's wrong with that. But

00:33:29 --> 00:34:01

the issue is, while you do that, you understand I enjoy these things. But this is not the goal. This is not the objective, the goal and the objective is I'm going to die. So therefore I have to pick people who have like minded, like like that. Because if you're around people will help you to forget that we're in trouble. And that's what our reality is because of the time that we're living in, in the time that we're living in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. During his time, the

00:34:01 --> 00:34:14

Companions who loved the Allah on whom, when they saw things taking place, they said something about it, or they left. They saw something, it wasn't right. They changed it or they left.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:29

The good person right now is the person who the good practice in person is the one he sees something and he says they just doesn't say anything, keeps his head down, and he keeps his mouth shut. That's the time we're living in.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:59

So the remembrance here is 20. And the reminder here is we are hearing about and we are seeing people like dying right now in the UK with this COVID I think more people died this month in the UK than any previous month. And it's supposed to get worse. Allah knows best. We haven't been afflicted with COVID But nobody said you're not going to get COVID

00:35:00 --> 00:35:06

May Allah protect all of us, nobody said that people sitting here are not going to die from COVID.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:41

And that's another thing. COVID is real. And COVID is just one of the many real things that can kill you. It's not just COVID. So here's something we have to be aware of. And we have to wear a mask. And if we see someone who has the symptoms, we avoid it. But there are many things like that, for the young person, hanging around with people who are involved in drugs and violence and crimes, that's like a virus kill you, you will lose your life. So why put a mask on about COVID and be

00:35:41 --> 00:35:51

worried about COVID and shaking hands like that, and doing you know, separation of people. But when it comes to hanging out with criminals and gangsters, that doesn't faze you at all.

00:35:54 --> 00:35:58

You're more apt to get killed with those people than you are to get COVID.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:27

Take advantage of five things before five things. When the beaver swam Sallalahu it was telling me 21 constantly told the people remind yourselves and remember about the reality of death, from the name of Allah is when you don't die. And someone around you who you know, just suddenly checks out. And you say, Wow,

00:36:28 --> 00:36:48

that's a NEMA because there's a vicar for you. And look at this issue of the death. You know, you can be a person in this dunya all of us, we want to be respected. No one wants someone to come and say Get up. He comes behind you and put his knee in your back and push you to get up I want to see here. That's disrespect. So we want to be respected.

00:36:50 --> 00:37:03

And we respect people, people say I share a little Benny, I share an oil, Ben, they respect them. The chef said, the chef has come in, let the chef sit down. That's the opinion of the chef respect.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:19

But once the chef dies, his name is no longer mentioned. Because of death. He dies. And they don't call him shake anymore. You know what they call them? They call them Janessa.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:21

Bring the Janessa here.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:38

Bring the Janaza Here you go into the janazah. They don't say you're going to the share. Are you going to Muhammad he's dead. They don't say to you, they say you're going to the janazah Did you pray the janazah. His name is not mentioned anymore,

00:37:39 --> 00:37:43

except a little bit. And today when he dies you affected.

00:37:44 --> 00:37:56

But after a week, or two or three or four in a month in a year. We don't remember that anymore. He's not remembered like that anymore. But when he was on the scene, he was respected. But that's the reality of death.

00:37:58 --> 00:38:23

And then when you die and the people bring you in a berry you, your family, everybody leaves you and I take your money with you. They marry your wife after you. Your wife is married after you and the man and the man himself. When his wife dies, he gets married. Immediately after that the ladies you're gonna wait four months, 10 days and maybe a year two years, three years, five years 10 years

00:38:25 --> 00:38:33

because he's dead. And all through in his life. He was just wasting time for that inevitable situation.

00:38:34 --> 00:38:51

So take advantage of your life your Abdullah while you live in. Does that mean you can make mistakes? No, you're gonna make mistakes. We're all gonna make mistakes. But I made a mistake. So I have to make Toba. He's smoking cigarettes, this example. Those cigarettes gonna kill you.

00:38:52 --> 00:38:54

They are going to kill you.

00:38:56 --> 00:39:14

You're going to I can't even say speed up your death. Because everybody's going to die when and where and how he was meant to die. But, you know, the Prophet said the age of my ummah is between 60 and 70. I mean, you can go you can get up there inshallah.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:27

But he's smoking. And by smoking, he increases his chances of cancer, lung disease, all kinds of issues, because he thinks he's going to live forever.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:59

Everybody here, if we were intelligent, plenty I mean really intelligent because we have intelligent people who do really good in school. But that's not the mark of someone who's intelligent. He's intelligent, but he worships a cow. He's intelligent, and he says, Allah doesn't exist. He's intelligent, and he's doing evil and bad. And I know him. He can count. He's a mathematician. He's a genius in math, but he doesn't realize everything you do. The math is going to come back. It's going

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

to

00:40:00 --> 00:40:23

get you. There is a Maha Sabha. There's a reckoning for you, you're going to be reckoned with. He is not even cognizant of that. So as I sit in, I sit in the audience and I see the audience you see me, all of us. Everybody here is involved in something with something that we shouldn't be involved in, and we shouldn't be involved with.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:49

And if we knew death was coming, we will say, hey, hey, hey, he, I have to wake up and will lie in shape on will come after you becoming motivated and say, hey, that's right. Hamdulillah I heard that. I mean, I know it, but now I've been reminded, I gotta get myself together. You get pumped up, shaved down will come to you before you leave this masjid

00:40:51 --> 00:40:56

and make you moves that feeling of I gotta do better. I gotta be better

00:40:59 --> 00:41:17

I don't know if you brothers notice young brother who went to Medina. I don't know if he graduated or not. But he was very active on the internet. And he was sharing his life and his struggles with the community. So I'll mention his name. His name is Ebro Ismail Beaumont. You brothers know that man.

00:41:19 --> 00:41:23

Ismail BOMA? Did you see the last video of that man

00:41:24 --> 00:41:33

where he's walking in the hospital, and how much weight he lost. And then he wrote on the thing sharing his life with the people. He said I spend

00:41:35 --> 00:41:37

all day managing the pain.

00:41:39 --> 00:42:16

And I just tried to get through the day, he said and then when the night time comes, I spend the rest of the night managing the pain. Take advantage of good health before you have bad health. I saw with my own eyes these two weak eyes now I got four. Last time I saw it smile BOMA in real life was at the Kaaba. I was at Southern matawa I finished my arm or my hydro, whatever I was doing. And I was walking at the top going across to go to our hotel. I was walking at the top, you know going

00:42:16 --> 00:42:43

across the shortcut. And they were making a say between Suffern Madhwa. I looked down. I saw Ibri. Ismail walking. His father was in a wheelchair. And Ibrahim Ismail was pushing his father and he was sick at that time. That's what I saw. I saw him you saw me. I said, Son, I want to ask them why they come sit down. He went I looked at him. I never saw him again in real life.

00:42:44 --> 00:43:06

I spoke to him I never saw him in real life. Now is smile. Beaumont give him an opportunity to walk around the Kaaba once is going to be an arduous task. So you'll go into the internet right now. When you get a chance if you don't notice brother and just put a smile Beaumont in there.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:11

You think it's my elbow? Mike can come to this class and sit here.

00:43:12 --> 00:43:14

And you sit in here and I'm sitting here.

00:43:16 --> 00:43:22

Do you think he wasn't sitting there one day? That is not going to happen to you? May Allah forbid.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:58

So brothers one take advantage of your youth before you get oh, I look into this audience so you guys are Chabad? I'm gonna tell you something. You see me right? You see my bit. I was like you one day. I was 18 years old. 19 years old. And I used to walk around like, Hey, I'm invincible. You want to fight me? You want to deal with me? But now at this age. Now I don't want to fight anybody. I don't want to fight anybody. I tell you no lie. I tell you no lie. I'm walking. I saw a dog and a

00:43:58 --> 00:44:22

dog was coming. You look crazy to me. I started running the jump on the car. In my when I was 18 I can run him probably jump over the car. I want to jump up. I didn't get high enough on the floor. I fell on the floor. The dog came in handy. Like wasn't a crazy dog. But now at my age I can't move like that anymore. I was your age before.

00:44:23 --> 00:44:27

You think that time is going to skip over you and just gonna always be young.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:36

No, you look at the people in this mess. Check these older brothers in these men's chair. We can do what we used to do at the age of 18.

00:44:37 --> 00:44:54

And I'm looking at you guys, this guy can play soccer right here Mashallah. He can play run around all day long. That won't play basketball. Every time is to when the challenging team comes on. He can be out there for three hours his team keeps winning.

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

I get on the basketball court because I'm not exercising. Hey,

00:45:00 --> 00:45:01

running up and down that cord.

00:45:02 --> 00:45:23

Why? Because I'm not young anymore like that. And I'm not like the guy who's 70 and I'm not like the guy who's 80 And I remember being 1718 1920 25 looking at it, oh man and woman all wrinkled up, you said SubhanAllah. You say, wow, look at you, Oh, I'm getting like that.

00:45:26 --> 00:45:27

You think you're going to skip that?

00:45:28 --> 00:45:43

That's the Sunnah of Allah and everybody. So the point here is 24, all of us, brothers, sisters, take advantage of the opportunities that you have. Take advantage of the fact that you are alive. Why is it?

00:45:44 --> 00:46:20

That if we knew, as the Prophet says, of Allah, what He was saying, anyone who says who panela would be handy. So Pamela Levine, Subhan, Allah will be handy. Suparna labin 100 times anybody who says Subhan Allah sponsor 33 times, anyone who does this, he gets this reward and that reward and this reward, and he won't do it. He won't do it. We won't do it. We praise a lot that he shared the question, how many people said so Pamela 33 times and the rewards of that? And he got those rewards?

00:46:20 --> 00:46:34

reading the Quran, one page of the Quran, and the heart of 10 Hasina. How many people picked up the Quran, outside of Salah and read the Quran with the NIA of getting has a net.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:55

And each day is like that pass you by passing you by opportunities, then what happens is your MO Kiama that person is regretful but it's too late to be regretful at that time. Like the little baby, little baby when you catch him. He said, I'm sorry, you sorry, because you got caught.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:27

The police catch him. He's really mostly stands before the judge and say, Look, I'm really regret what I did when I killed their family. And he's serious. I made a mistake. I shouldn't have been acting like that. And he wants leniency from the judge. And he is sincere. He's not just playing, he's sincere. I mess my life up. And I took their relative away. And I gave them pain. I really mean to do what I was high, it was hanging out with the people. I swear to God, I'm sorry. And he means

00:47:27 --> 00:47:50

that he had he had can't be sorry. Now man, you're in trouble now. Your sorrow doesn't help now that court, you gotta go to jail 20 years in that jail, to pay your debt to society. So now that true sincere sorrow is too late. But even that sorrow is better than the sorrow of yomo Kiama.

00:47:52 --> 00:48:01

The sorrow of yomo Qiyamah. So take advantage of your youth share that before you guys get old.

00:48:02 --> 00:48:05

And you can't do what you can do right now.

00:48:06 --> 00:48:37

And it's going to happen to some of you, and some of you is not going to happen because like I said, I was in a sham. And in a sham. We got messages. People are getting killed in the streets of Birmingham, from Shabaab who people say a nice people and one lady, none of us came to this message thinking and believing someone's going to stab us, bumped into someone, he gets mad and he stabs you. No one thought that someone is drunk driving a car, why you crossing the street and he runs you

00:48:37 --> 00:49:04

over. And the way we cross the street is when negligent we walk in the street and not paying attention. No man, you better look at those cars and walk across the street with the understanding I want to live. My gonna put my life on the line like that walking in the street and cars coming behind me expecting that they're going to drive correctly. And then when he hits you, you're paralyzed. And now you can pray. Now you were in the wheelchair.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:25

So out of all of the things that we own, and there are a lot of things that we own that are pointing to us. Your car is important in your possessions your phone is important. Your wife is important your children on pour in from what are the most important things that we have? Is that time, that time

00:49:27 --> 00:49:35

it is important. And again, I repeat, most of us are not taking taking care of the time.

00:49:37 --> 00:49:59

I didn't say take advantage of having wealth before you don't have the ability to spend. So the wealth that you have, however little it is time may come when again like I told you whiny, you know the rich people from Syria when they were in Syria. They were rich and there's something about peace

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

Pour rich, they have a mentality. They have an existence wherever you go, grinders hustlers, who are rich. Many of them just had this mind, you put them anywhere, they are going to get me they're gonna make money. I've dropped my name and I have from the Tim promise gender, yeah, money. And he left making he left all his money, he left his money.

00:50:22 --> 00:50:52

When the Prophet paired them with the other companion, the other companion said, I have two wives, you take one, and you divorce her for you. I have this much money I give you had, the man said, I've dropped nine out money. May Allah bless you in your family, you keep your wife, may Allah bless you and your money, I don't need your money. He came with no money. He went to that marketplace. And he started hustling, he became rich again. Because that's how rich. Some people that's how they think.

00:50:53 --> 00:51:01

I know how to make money. I may fail here and there. But I'm not gonna be a bum like the regular people. I'm making money. So they were rich in Syria

00:51:02 --> 00:51:07

and the camps of Lebanon, their tents are nicer.

00:51:09 --> 00:51:13

But they still need help. But the tents are nicer.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:28

They're not going into their tents. We're not going to help them. But they offer us to come to pray in the tents to rest in the tents. I'm not saying that they tend to like your homes. But it's nicer than those tents you saw us in.

00:51:30 --> 00:51:42

But in Syria, that man had 10 restaurants. That man had 50 petrol stations. That man had big buildings in Syria.

00:51:43 --> 00:51:44

Now

00:51:45 --> 00:51:52

he's in line, when Task Force GLM is dead. He's in line, wanting to get some help.

00:51:54 --> 00:52:23

Because he doesn't have money now. And that's the reality of life. I love mentioned in the Quran, yeah, you live in Amman, that truly Commonwealth. Allah Allah document Vikram, Lackey. Well, meaning if they're looking for like a woman who has the rune, oh, you believe. Don't let your children and don't let your monies cause you to be negligent about the vicar of Allah, a salon and the dean.

00:52:25 --> 00:52:38

Don't let that like make you lose your your dean. Some of us are married. You have a responsibility. You have a responsibility. It's a fitna.

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

We're married, we have issues, we have trouble. We're struggling, so many things.

00:52:47 --> 00:53:00

And then the iron law title went on to mention what am fickle mimara xakanaxa, Kimmy carbery, and yet to document mouth and spin what Allah has given you, before death comes to one of you.

00:53:01 --> 00:53:27

And then he says, Oh my lord, oh my lord, oh my lord, give me life. Again, I want to spend, just give me life. The death came on the screen now. You didn't spend before you got a problem? Not a problem. So I just want to remind you of 20 concerning these two hadith of Rasulillah Salam, the emphasis today is the time manage your time. We are

00:53:29 --> 00:53:45

super mega time wasters. And then those of us who are trying to be students of knowledge, the the culture, the culture of this time, this bad time, is that we waste time.

00:53:46 --> 00:53:48

We waste time.

00:53:49 --> 00:53:52

We waste time on the mobile phone.

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

And only if what we were reading was benefiting us information, whether it's secular or the dean, but we're benefiting, but it's just wasted time.

00:54:06 --> 00:54:23

I grew up in America as an athlete, and I love American sports, NFL and NBA. I like the baseball as well, but only when the playoffs come. But when I went to Medina, I kind of fell out of that because for eight years I wasn't into it.

00:54:25 --> 00:54:47

But I can see myself the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the most watched sporting events in the world. Billions of dollars they make an advertising dollars in advertisements. If you want to add if you want to advertise something doing that game, you got to pay $5 million for 30 seconds

00:54:48 --> 00:54:50

because you're gonna make a lot of money.

00:54:52 --> 00:54:55

So we sit to watch that Super Bowl pumped up,

00:54:56 --> 00:54:59

pumped up, and it's gonna take five six

00:55:00 --> 00:55:11

It's hours at a time that you should be praying as you can make vicar. You could memorize the Quran, you could be doing Seletar windy day we do so many things you know what I'm talking about?

00:55:13 --> 00:55:21

Allah he will lay will light. These brothers when I lived in Liverpool. I came to know that Liverpool was a good soccer team.

00:55:22 --> 00:55:44

I came to know they were good soccer team and he had these really diehard fans. So when I went and I started seeing that soccer, I was like, Okay, this is it. I really wasn't into soccer. But it was the religion for some people, like American sports is a religion for us. But all of that time to watch cats running around with shorts, kicking a ball in the net.

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

Am I saying I came into standing I can identify with how that is as men and no, I can identify with that I know that fill in.

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

But the Muslim is the one hole. He says I'm going to die.

00:56:01 --> 00:56:10

I'm going to die. And my relationship with that guy, my relative is not good. I'm going to die.

00:56:11 --> 00:56:16

And when I die, I don't have a chance to rectify the problem. So I want to end by saying

00:56:17 --> 00:56:51

when I had went to Medina when I was a new student, there was a white guy who came he was a Muslim. His name was or amount of Bill, some New Mexico. I met him I don't really really remember how but it was a Mecca, Medina we met. He had tattoos all over his body, because he used to be with this motorcycle gang called the Hells Angels. They're criminals in America, serious drug dealers, criminals, antisocial behavior, serious criminals, Hells Angels, he was one of them. He became a

00:56:51 --> 00:57:23

Muslim and he left that he was real good with mechanics. The guy knew everything about motors and engines, we became a Muslim. He took his children came to Saudi Arabia and armor or something, what a hardship I think it was Amara and he went in applying at a job to work on Saudi airlines to airplanes and a mechanic. He doesn't know anything about no airplanes. He just was good with mechanics. He got the job as a mechanic, and the way he is, like I just told you about rich people

00:57:23 --> 00:57:57

from the way he is. He's a type of guy, he's gonna make something happen for him. So he wound up getting bumped up to the position of being a manager at Saudi Arabian Airlines as a numerous. Now of course, he was a white brother. And that has something to do with it. Allah Who knows best. He had a powerful job, good money. And me and my brother became close. I don't know any white person on the face of this earth that I love more than that brother. That was my brother. He called me Friday,

00:57:57 --> 00:58:20

asked me a question. I didn't answer it. After two days, I sent them a message. Today. I got a message. My wife, I was talking to my wife. And I was going to think, and I saw two pictures. I didn't pay attention to it from my bill. And I was talking to my wife and I can see that well. After that. I looked and I looked close. And I read

00:58:21 --> 00:58:28

Stephen Lowry. Oh, my bill passed away today in the film. I couldn't believe it.

00:58:29 --> 00:58:30

That was my man.

00:58:32 --> 00:58:46

So if any of you can think about a best friend that you had, that you don't really see him a lot, but he's your best friend. And suddenly you got news. And you saw his picture where he's laying pale and dead.

00:58:48 --> 00:58:52

Dead. I just spoke to that brother on Friday.

00:58:54 --> 00:58:56

And there was Oh my bill. I couldn't believe it.

00:58:58 --> 00:59:19

I still can't believe it. Meaning that says Death. Death is death. But because I know my bill it I was close to my bill. And I sent that because his wife sent it to me. I caught the number it was his number. A few months ago, a older brother from Philadelphia Rashid sallahu. Dean died.

00:59:20 --> 00:59:25

Every time I go through my phone, his name is still in it. I haven't erased his name yet.

00:59:27 --> 00:59:41

When I call it the number I get from his number my bill is dead. I caught it. She picked up the phone so now why they will salmon this omega, a lady from the Philippines married to Filipino women.

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

What happened?

00:59:45 --> 01:00:00

She said he was visited by people he went to praise about the Margaret told his son go tell her after McGraw began to come. I come to that and he prayed muck it up and fell down and fell out started having this foaming in his mouth. Got him to the hospital.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:02

Do a dead on arrival.

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

What makes any of us think you can fall down and die before leaving this Masjid?

01:00:12 --> 01:00:48

Who told you who promised you that, but the way you're sitting will lie. We believe our families are waiting for us at home. I got it. And we believe that's the plan. But who told you you don't get an aneurysm and you just die. You just die a heart attack. You just die. Just like that. And it's as real as we're sitting here right now. So 20 Take five advantage of five things before five. And let us stop being of those people with Lolly gagging unnecessarily. And when we Lolly guy, we have to

01:00:48 --> 01:01:16

remind each other we have to remind each other so we're going to stop here and show Eliza joke. And we ask Allah to Allah have mercy upon our brother in my building to have mercy upon him make things easy for his family, put them in the genitive for those without any other boy, he said. And we ask Allah Who Thailand to give she fine suburb to our brothers smile, BOMA, and the rest of those Muslim brothers we know and those who we don't know who was struggling with these issues, and these people

01:01:16 --> 01:01:51

are signs and IODs for all of us. Make Toba to Allah rectify your relationship with people get serious about the reality every step of the way. Every step of the way. Cod Nick cognisant cognizant, a Cognizant decision. I'm just trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to do the right thing. But don't think for one minute shaytaan is going to take a break and go to Hawaii and leave you alone. He isn't going to do that. He's not going to do that. Right after this talk right after

01:01:51 --> 01:02:16

Right after this does shaytaan is going to make you try to make ume forget about that reality. So if you guys have any questions shot like put your question phone shower and intercom che.

01:02:25 --> 01:02:26

Masks

01:02:27 --> 01:02:28

work

01:02:34 --> 01:02:38

you're trying to be nice to your neighbor. Work. Are you

01:02:44 --> 01:02:49

receive it real quickly as 20 concerning Christmas, we did a program last night.

01:02:52 --> 01:03:09

For Islam wise, we have a lot of reverse Islam wise. And those questions were presented to help him to support the Revert Muslim brothers and sisters who are trying to navigate through these holidays. And these questions will put forward.

01:03:10 --> 01:03:42

But because you asked a question, I'm not going to say wait until that comes out and I think is going to come out tomorrow, inshallah. But to answer it's not permissible for a Muslim to give non Muslims any gifts that are connected to these holidays. Because if you were to do that, it would be you basically saying this thing about Christmas is true. And what it's meant to be is true. This thing about Easter is true. When you give them make you a crock. You're saying yeah, I agree with

01:03:42 --> 01:04:09

that. So Allah told us don't cooperate on evil and disobeying Allah. We'd cooperate on righteousness and fear and Allah. We don't cooperate on that stuff. So if a person gets married in these non Muslim will give him a gift, because he's married, is not religious is not cultural. We give them a gift. A person gets a promotion, a person gets his degree, we give them a gift. He's not Muslim, relative, someone we know.

01:04:10 --> 01:04:17

As for receiving gifts from the non Muslims, at the time of their holidays is permissible.

01:04:18 --> 01:04:19

It's permissible.

01:04:20 --> 01:04:50

They give you a Griff because it's Christmas. They're in the given spirit. And the guy comes and says, I feel like given I feel good. So any time of the year, I feel good, because I'm drunk, and I'm hanging out. So I'm going to give you this gift. You don't have to not take that gift. And Allah Sam, the Prophet said to her do to hobble exchange gifts and will enforce the love between yourselves respect to A normalcy will give you a gift and his holiday and you throw it away because

01:04:50 --> 01:04:53

I'm not taking that. What do you think is going to be his response?

01:04:55 --> 01:04:59

So as shareholders slam is going to take me mentioned about

01:05:00 --> 01:05:36

This issue, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took gifts from the kuffaar non Muslim, the leader of Egypt and Morocco plus he gave us hula hoops and allowed him some gifts. He gave him Madea, the Coptic, who had his baby, and he also gave them a bundle of cross between a horse and a donkey. russula took it. Another leader gave him a white mule. He took it, the Jewish lady, she gave her some allah sallallahu sallam, a roasted lamb, a roasted lamb. That's a gift. And remember Bacardi

01:05:36 --> 01:06:09

brought that hadith in his book in the chapter, the permissibility of taking gifts from machete clean, and that lamb was poisoned. So when the Prophet SAW to eat and the lamb he was told it's poison, but it was a gift. He took it. He took it, so we can take gifts from them. But the issue is, what about when it is the holidays, the Ameerul Momineen Ali ibn Abi Taalib, Alia Binetti. Talat was given gifts by the mushrik keen because of the celebration of Nehru rose, which is a Persian

01:06:09 --> 01:06:14

celebration of confidence ship, and it gave him a gift. He took it.

01:06:15 --> 01:06:26

There was some Muslim women who were wet nurses, they used to, they were wet nurses, they used to suckle the children of those who fall for a price they were struggling to get money.

01:06:27 --> 01:07:00

So those women will confer would give the Muslim women gifts of food because they will pay them and it's the celebration so they will give them food. They went to ice is it can we take that full? I Aisha said May Allah be pleased, if they give you meat, don't eat it. But if they give you vegetables, take it. Why you don't eat the meat. Because the meat is haram they slaughtered it for other than Allah. But from some of us are those people eat the meat of Al Kitab some of us eat the

01:07:00 --> 01:07:04

meat of our Rokita. If you believe that's permissible, and they gave you meat, you eat it.

01:07:06 --> 01:07:38

Most of us don't eat that meat. We eat halal, but some of us eat that meat from McDonald's and from Morrison's some people do that. If they give you that meat, and it's not pork, you can take it because the Companions took that and there's nothing in religious that you can take that the gift that you cannot take from the kuffar during the holidays, is the gift that is haram in and of itself. They give you a Santa Claus, they give you a Christmas tree, they give you a cross, they

01:07:38 --> 01:07:52

give you wine, they give you something that has been stolen, they give you something that is against a religion, they give you something like you can take that they want to give you poor, they want to give you something that you can eat, and those things you don't take.

01:07:54 --> 01:08:18

So if one of you were to receive for an example at your job, there's a Christmas party, but they're not celebrating Christmas than celebrating Christmas they just want the workers to come but they're not celebrating because they themselves don't even know what they're doing. It shares were taken off and we're going to have a party you don't have to leave if you don't want as long as they're not celebrating and force you to celebrate. You're not into that.

01:08:19 --> 01:08:50

So you could you could participate. But again, if they make the shift of Allah and they doing those things like that, hello Tada me that prohibited for Allah to do my home Hatha who do the Hadith and ready and even men whom, if you see the eye of Allah being disbelieved then and jokes being made concerning those I add, then don't sit with the people who are doing that. If you sit with them while they're doing that, then you like them, you got to get up you have to get into the wind and

01:08:50 --> 01:09:15

you have to leave. So yes, specially you revert brothers and sisters, don't be hardcore and rough with your relatives. Don't be like that. This is Christmas. They give your kids gifts. They brought your children, that thing and that thing, and it doesn't go against the religion. How in the world you're going to save your mother and your father. Your Kuffar not taking that What prevented you from taking it?

01:09:16 --> 01:09:45

The Companions you bet in those companions was the I was the Hadith that you understand that the Companions didn't understand it that way. Or they understood it the way you understood it. Your mother, your father, you know how these holidays aren't for our relatives, so important to them. He's a Sikh, Hindu, the wily all this stuff, they give you a gift. It doesn't go against a religion doesn't compromise your religion. Take the gift. Take the gift. They give you a nice dress, nice

01:09:45 --> 01:09:48

shoes, nice pants. Your father gives you an Audi.

01:09:50 --> 01:09:53

Now Muslim gives you an Audi and you say I don't want to

01:09:55 --> 01:09:56

buy now

01:09:58 --> 01:09:58

when a

01:10:00 --> 01:10:26

And if anyone has something other than that, you don't have to accept them believe what I say. Because maybe someone is just to say, Oh, he's really minimizing, you know, the danger of a shipwreck, you want to read those is of a shipwreck or something like that, you could do that, we want to listen to that, you want to answer to that. Because there is a Hadith that the Prophet says of Allah when he was selling them to Hina and zuba della Mushrikeen, we have been prohibited from

01:10:26 --> 01:10:58

taking gifts of the Mushrikeen. But the meaning of this hadith is, we've been prohibited from taking the gift of the Mushrikeen. That is like a bribe. They give you a gift to turn the other eye. And now Muslim gives you a gift to compromise your religion. It gives you a gift to open up the door for them to come to the back door to do something against the Muslims. That's the Zubur the machine that's the meaning of this hadith, it doesn't mean every gift or why would the Prophet take the

01:10:58 --> 01:10:59

gifts from them?

01:11:00 --> 01:11:18

It's a gift from them. The gift that we can take from them is the gift that compromises your slam puts you down, makes ihana and fool makes you disrespect it other than this problem. They want to give you for the Christmas holiday. They want to give you

01:11:19 --> 01:11:37

a my monetary money. Here's your Christmas gift. 200 pounds 100 pounds. Nine you keep that no, you take that money, take the money because they're not telling you worship this worship that do this do that. They're just giving you a gift because it's the time that they're happy.

01:11:39 --> 01:11:46

And Allah knows best and more questions acquainting. Okay, we're going to stop here in sha Allah is with white knight.

01:11:47 --> 01:11:53

We're all dead. Take advantage of your life. Dead Men, all of us dead men.
