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

You know people come to festivals when majority FAFSA FAFSA hula hula

00:04:10--> 00:04:40

I think this is a 13th or 14th installation, an installment of the series of podcasts that I began a number of months ago. I have maybe two more, three more to go. And then I will it will be close to Ramadan. So we'll move on to the pre Ramadan series in sha Allah Tala. Right. So a few points that I want to bring within achieving the balance which was the theme of these hotbeds. Why explain an Islamic concept that is very clear, that is undisputed that everyone in this room or outside of it will agree to as long as they're Muslims, they agreed to these basics.

00:04:41--> 00:04:54

But in order for us to be able to practice these values or accept these principles appropriately, there is a there's a caveat. There's a balance. There's a few exceptions. There's a few concepts that need to be understood so that this can actually serve its purpose. And I've talked about

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

a wide range of topics and I went in almost

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Every aspect of Islamic law in Islamic life. Some of them were quite controversial and some of them are a little bit less. Today I'm going to talk about I think it's clear to you what I'm going to talk about. I'm going to talk about da and I'm gonna start with the definitely peace. Evidently, there is no dispute there is no doubt in any Muslims mind that definitely we are commanded to supplicate to Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times, and definitely Allah subhanaw taala responds to any dua that is made to him jelajah that is Islam 101. When you enter Islam, one of the first things you're taught to do is to make dua, which is what it is. So the idea is just a long drive. That's

00:05:39--> 00:06:10

all it is. It's not very long, but it's that's what it is the old sorrows, just basically, you're taught to make dua immediately you're taught what supplication is, you're taught that this is what you're going to be doing for the rest of your life as a Muslim, go to speaking to Allah subhanaw supplicating Allah subhanaw taala and Allah will respond as he said in the verse that I just recited upon you, or oni or their own yesterday will come you supplicate me and I will respond to you in the verses that we all love reciting right before Ramadan and during Ramadan, the verses that come within the verses of this verse that exists right in the middle of the verses of cm.

00:06:11--> 00:06:50

When he says to Pilate what to Allah either sir like a baddie Ernie, but in the body but OG Buddha, either the iron polyester G Bulli will you mean will be I love them your shoe doing and when you my service is about me that I am near, it doesn't even supine to either use the word safe. In this situation, what would make more sense at least or what makes a certain degree of sense for those who are linguistically like me that week would wonder the way that I like if someone's if My servants ask you about Me, then you should have been then you will say Well, I'll tell them this. He doesn't he skips the valley you thought to him as the middleman for the answer, which is not really the only

00:06:50--> 00:07:23

time he does on the Quran. Yes. Aluna Oh, yes. I don't wanna call that's all the Quran works. They ask you tell them this to ask you tell them this is Luna is tough to read Aquila youth decom. They ask you for Phaedra they'll tell them Allah says this in this specific example. And he doesn't he skips the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa early he was so happy he was sitting there with the Sleeman Kathira he doesn't he jumps right to the conclusion. He goes right to the business it's as if they ask you about me and then he talks to you immediately there's no you don't need to hear this through a medium way that I like anybody I knew when my sermons asked you about me friendly a buddy of I am

00:07:23--> 00:07:40

near I am here. I respond to this application of the one who was supplicating when they do it Would you bow down with a die either done? However, they must respond to me yesterday Bulli and they must believe in me well you mean OB I love him y'all should do so that they may find their way in life.

00:07:41--> 00:08:25

He says to pine on what to Isla Ummi ug will move borrower EDA. These are questions with a number. Ask them who was it then? Who responds to the one who is in extreme difficulty? When they supplicate who is the one who you can turn to at a moment when you are scared and when you're afraid when you're a weak we have no one to turn to who is it that you turn to and who is it that responds to you? Who is it that delivers for you what you want when you turn to him a May ug when will Ottawa either either way achieve was to work at your Aluko and he removes the difficulty and he makes you a steward of the earth. Isla Humala there another is there another deity besides Allah is there

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

another God besides Allah Who will do this for Lila Maria the Quran but you forget really quickly, you'll forget very quickly we all do. You forgot quickly.

00:08:34--> 00:09:04

He says subhanho wa Taala always study Bill Levine, manual. Well, I'm here to Solly How do you see you do him infallibly and he will respond to those who believe in Him and do it and perform the deeds that he asked him to perform and he will increase him. You will increase them from his own from his own merit supine or whatnot. I mean, probably you'll just use from his own bounty, he will give you more than what you asked for to begin with. He says subhanho wa Taala Beckham, Theodore, wrong, the whole fear Call upon your Lord supplicate your Lord. Whether you do it

00:09:05--> 00:09:23

openly, or you do a secretively. Whether you do it with a loud voice or a low voice, wherever you are, he's asked you subhanho wa Taala could continue to turn to Him and supplication to speak to him. The provider you sought to send him says in a number of different Hadith they all have reasonable change of narration, he will say do I want a bad or do I?

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

Do and supplication is what worship is is ritual?

00:09:29--> 00:09:43

Like the what what rituals actually are broken down to its application? That's what a ritual is at the end. Like you can break down you break down salon you break down slow down, you break down how did you break down reciting the Quran and thinking all the way are at the end is just a form of supplication?

00:09:45--> 00:09:58

supplication is the brain of what rituals are because it's what what makes it work. It's the point of it. It's the point of these rituals that you speak to God you're in supplication with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You got a slot though. Sam, how do you need vitamin D with

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


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

intergeneration he says, Oh dear Allah. Well antem moutain oh and I believe in Allah Allah Yes Did you boo to Pearl been have a feeling that when he says Ask Allah and supplicate to Allah Subhanallah in your heart, you're sure you're you will have certainty that he will respond to you. You have certainty that he will respond to you have no doubt in your heart and in your mind that he will respond to you. Because Allah does not accept that from someone who was distracted and is not certain and it's not clear. You won't listen to that he's looking for someone who's asking him, who was sure, who was certain that Allah subhanaw taala respond. But there's no dispute about that. If

00:10:36--> 00:11:13

you're Muslim, then you know, you are commanded by Allah subhanaw taala himself, to supplicate Allah and if you don't make dua, then you are actually sinning. If you and I do not make dua and we do not supplicate to Allah subhanaw That that we're in a state of sin. It's an act of arrogance. It is a reason for punishment of the Day of Judgment. So yes, 100% We must make dua at all times. And yes, Allah subhanaw taala will always respond always, not sometimes, not half the time you will always respond subhanho wa Taala we have no doubt in that whatsoever. And that is an aspect of our deen that it that's a maxim. That's a maxim that we don't argue we don't disagree upon. Plenty. Well

00:11:16--> 00:11:27

hello, Robbie, I thought I should let me say that to her. That issue or Well, I thought about terrorism. The reason I feel Islam, I'm rooting for him. Now. I know there

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

the owner who yesterday, Huntsman

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

by them in Malaysia, Kofi here and Anika Muslimeen

00:13:50--> 00:14:05

omiana. Who subhanho wa Taala don't make them I don't know how sofa yesterday Butina subhanho wa Taala kaka that's the first piece of the hot man is pretty simple and as quick because I don't need to spend too much time you all understand that and most Muslims here fully agree with that.

00:14:07--> 00:14:21

However, there's a few points regarding that you need to understand and you understand them very clearly. Where else there'll be a problem with how you deal with it. So I'm gonna start I have four points to share with you. There's more than that. But I share with you today four points to understand regarding door number one.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

If you ask for something, and you don't get it, it doesn't mean he didn't respond to you. He never said he was going to give you what you asked for. He never said that subhanho wa Taala semantics matter here that did exactly what he says becomes important in the Quran. He never said I'm going to give you He told you I'm going to SDG I'm going to respond to you. When 100% I will respond to you 100 You're going to be you're going to find a response that will make you happy. It doesn't mean that he's going to give you exactly what you asked for. And when you ask for something you don't get it. That doesn't mean that he did

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

respond. He responds Subhana wa Tada in many ways, in many ways. Sometimes he gives you what you want when you want it. Sometimes they'll give you what you want later. Sometimes they'll give you what you need, not what you want, because what you want was not there it was not beneficial for you. Sometimes you will remove harm that was coming away with your DUA and sometimes you will hold on to it to your milk it'll explain to you why he didn't get what you wanted. He'll give you something for on the day of judgment whether to hire Oh, let me know anyways, without going to heaven Why? Because on the Day of Judgment is better than when you get it in this life. That's the number one point just

00:15:37--> 00:16:00

because you didn't get what you wanted when you asked for it doesn't mean he didn't respond doesn't mean he rejected your DUA I just made the profit out of you start doing it so it was explained many times in multiple Hadith veteran they'll say hey, and where you said Alia sauce that they used to jab Buddha who may Allah Milko doubt or be welcome? Yes. touchably if you do it in mail me agile if you do it, Madam Yes. Dajin

00:16:01--> 00:16:07

you will be you will get you will be responded to by Allah subhanaw taala until you say I asked for something and he didn't give it to me.

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

You're in a hurry. You're in a hurry. You didn't You didn't wait. You didn't wait. As long as you don't say that. You're gonna go go walk around saying I say didn't get it. You'll he'll respond to you.

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

This is called the Aladdin's lamp syndrome. I call this my it's my phrase. So if you use it, you have to reference me.

00:16:28--> 00:17:08

The Aladdin's lamp syndrome is a problem. Do I is not Aladdin's lamp. You're not? I want this and then you're gonna go. That's that's her that's for. That's for a genie. That's that's very chill. It's fun to watch this show. That's not what DA is, do I is I asked for something, I'm going to get it because he said he's going to No, that's not what he said. He said, I'll respond to you. And he'll respond to you in multiple ways. And you will make dua and you're fully certain that he will respond to you with what is in your best interest. And you have no doubt in that at all. Not getting what you want means nothing. But if you treat Allah subhanaw taala with Aladdin's lamp syndrome,

00:17:08--> 00:17:41

then you're going to be very disappointed in life. Gonna be very, very disappointed. And there'll be your fault, because you never understood what this whole thing was to begin with. You misunderstood it, you thought if you stood there, and you asked for it hard enough, then you're gonna get exactly what you asked for. Sorry. That's not how this works. That's not what's going to happen. That's not what Allah subhanaw taala actually explained. And I can go through a lot of evidence for that. But I don't want to make this booklet too long for you today. Bad weather outside, but we have multiple, endless numbers of a hadith. And examples in the Quran, where the person makes does not exactly get

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

what he wants at the moment, it's fine. It's fine.

00:17:45--> 00:18:18

If you don't get what you want, when you ask for it doesn't mean you didn't respond, it just means that he'll respond differently than what you want. Okay. Okay, I can tell you this, I've never made it in my life once and got exactly what I wanted the time I wanted it not once, not once, not even once. Whatever I get, I get later, and I get it differently, and I get it better. I look back and said it was an idiot to make that dollar to begin with. I was asking for the wrong thing. I was short sighted. And I was ignorant. And I was selfish and my heart was small and my brain was smaller. And it was asking for that. And I was asking for it. I was asking for it. I didn't realize

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

what I was asking for was going to be my demise. So I look at him the other day, you didn't give it to me. Because if he gave it to me, then it would have ruined my life. And I wouldn't I wouldn't have known any better.

00:18:27--> 00:19:04

To learn about this issue early on, you'll make dua and you have certainty and then Allah subhanaw taala responds the way he knows to respond, what's best for you and you look that you're okay with that. You get rid of this Aladdin's lamp syndrome. Number two. And this is just a point that I have to make because I've seen it happen too many times. Do not build your Eman on the day that you made something that you got, please, that is a very weak foundation, to weak foundation to have to say that the only reason that I believe in Allah, and Allah is because one forums I made a dua one moment and it gave me what I wanted. But what happens next time, when you make a DUA and he doesn't

00:19:04--> 00:19:40

give you what you want, the moment you ask for it, what happens then you lose your iman, or then congratulations, you're standing on a twig, you're building a building on a twig it's going to it's going to come falling that's going to collapse because that's not what you build your email and on which is why I talked about it, the heart and the mind. Eman is built on something much bigger. You build your email and the foundations of the universe and life and history and your personal your personal existence. And you look at those large domains and you see the arrows all pointing towards one Creator. And that's how you build your Emanuela illAllah.

00:19:41--> 00:20:00

If you build it well, and I know a lot of people who did that, who built their email and they made one day and it works for them and they make dua for them. But Allah subhanaw taala opens their minds and hearts before it's too late. Because all it has to happen is it goes through a really difficult moment and they make dua and it doesn't happen and then they start questioning God. Why didn't the answer why didn't you give him what he wants?

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

And when did he ever tell you that that's how this was going to happen. When did he ever explain to you that yes you just asked for it like give it to you right away? No problem. Oh if you really want it then definitely I have no right no, You never see Allah subhanaw taala who never said that to begin with, so to expect it as a problem on its own Akula holy Hi there we're still fit Allah. Hi, Lea welcome. Let's start with your woohoo yellow Kerala Camilla Fosun mustafina Sofitel MA

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

and how hamdu lillah

00:20:39--> 00:20:46

wa sallahu wa salam, O Allah, Allah, may Allah be Javad early he also had to heal Manitoba and Elijah who will have

00:20:49--> 00:21:20

the third point before point number one, just because you don't get what you want when you want it doesn't mean it's not responding to you subhanaw taala You have no right to think that way to begin with. Number two, do not build your Eman on something as simple as that, as that's not what Ema is built on. Eman is built on a foundation much more meaningful than that. The world around you is filled with signs all you have to do is just look and think and contemplate then you know that you know who and then comes along with it in a different capacity which I'm going to explain to you today. Number three

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

do it without it

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

is borderline disrespectful or

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

borderline, disrespectful borderline. If you turn to a lung and ask him for something that you are doing nothing to achieve

00:21:39--> 00:22:23

borderline problematic. So when Allah subhanaw taala tells you your job is to stand by your Muslim brothers and sisters. Your job is to bring Nussle for your ummah to bring status and to bring success and to bring that for your OMA and you do none of that at all but you'll make dua era that's a problem a little bit it's almost saying no you do it I am busy. I have other things to do so you'd I don't I don't I know you asked me to have I'm too busy so you do it did Elijah Lola is almost disrespectful to almost is borderline problematic for you to make dua doing nothing with no effort with no plan with no true intention where you're not actually in in the midst of trying to get it

00:22:23--> 00:22:52

done or you're not seeking help or you're not you're not a part of any movement to actually get it done. That's there's something there there's something missing there has to have a man with it has to have ammo you have to be doing so you have to be working hard towards the goal. And then do it is there it explains it is there it's a it's a supplementary aspect of the deen is very important by the way, but without actually doing anything. I have a problem. I had to share one so I knew

00:22:56--> 00:23:24

I was making dua and Ramadan and I said I made that same draw it specifically was a bit more a bit more specific was an issue of success a bit more specific for the Omo where I actually specify something that we were wanting as an omen not gonna say what it is. I asked for something specific. So it came to me afterwards and he was he was a very very wise gentleman he told me the dollar that you're making right now is similar to the DUA have a single gentleman who's asking Allah for children.

00:23:27--> 00:24:00

If you are single, I want children don't have children. And our job was to get married and then ask for children. What are you doing asking for shelter you're not even married yet? It's mindless there's something wrong while if you want you want to have children fine what have you done to do that don't choose that Charla only highlighted nothing haram but you have to do something you can just stand there and we hope it's not good. I think you've watched too much Disney with our kids we think the storks will come with a little bundles in the drop them through the chimneys not gonna happen that way we know it doesn't happen that way. So you have to do what you have to do. Where's

00:24:00--> 00:24:22

your effort? Where are you? What have you done? Show me show Allah subhanaw that you care enough the Prophet How do you seduce them with due to Barbara for dua, he would make dua so, so heart filled when he made it that the Sahaba wouldn't know what to do. Like before he was standing out with his hands up to the sky like this, his head down like this into a helicopter the hill is far above and Nikola

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

Tesla the word you're up nurse like a lady who I adore Allah the victory that you promised me if we die today no one will be left to worship you want to praise your name until his muse fell off his his shoulders they will go to the province that yellow Salah when Alec take it easy in the home and use Okinawa Allah will never leave you take it easy, but the provider you're supposed to work day and night. You have every right to do that. When as Muslims we do it and we and there's nothing like there's no effort. There's nothing we just we do it and we walk away we go home.

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

They go to sleep, we go back to work. It doesn't matter. We have no investment. There's no energy there's no emotion.

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

is no attachment, there's no commitment, there's no long term plan or short term plan of any sorts becomes a problem. Because do i in order for it to be called it has to has to be Amyl you have to be doing something, you have to be doing something. When you ask for something from Allah subhanaw taala, you have to be working towards it working towards it is the phrase that I think you should take away from today working towards it. The fourth and last piece of this whole

00:25:24--> 00:25:30

regarding da da, is the conversation you have with ALLAH SubhanA wa and that's what it is, is a conversation

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

is communication is staying in touch all the time.

00:25:37--> 00:26:12

We love staying in touch. That's why we invented social media. It's inevitable, we're going to do it as human beings because we love to stay in touch. Don't like to being alone. Loneliness can kill you really can be alone. But if you're lonely, lonely can ruin you. There's a lot of people in this world who are lonely. This is just as a side, thought to watch out for people like that. Don't let people be alone, lonely. Please don't if you know someone who's lonely, be that person who take a moment and spend some time with them. You have no idea what you can do for someone if you do that. You have no idea the change you can bring to someone's life. Sometimes you'll you'll move someone

00:26:12--> 00:26:41

from a very, very bad situation where they're thinking thoughts they shouldn't be thinking and they're struggling because they're lonely because they have no friends, because not as cool as you. They're not as well connected as you and they're not as wealthy you're not as good looking not as this not as that so they don't have what if you have that invest in someone who's struggling with these things. There's a lot of pleasure in doing that. Don't allow people to be lonely, but you're like being lonely. Those who have Allah subhanaw taala and their lives are never lonely. Truly, they're never lonely because they have they're in touch with someone else. They're in touch with

00:26:41--> 00:27:12

them all the time. That's a dua is dry is basically you telling Allah what you're hoping for. That's why you don't make dua for him or totally I tell him right the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said Allah subhanaw taala respond to all of you as long as you don't ask for him or call to him or haram. You're not gonna make dua for something haram. Right? Think about that is insane. You'll never turn to Allah gives me the ability to know that gave me the ability to commit this sit No, I'm not gonna ask for that wouldn't be appropriate. So when you make dua, you're only asked for good things. But when you're asking for the good things, you're telling Allah, what your thought processes are

00:27:12--> 00:27:43

telling them, what you're hoping for, what your life is about, where you're going, what you're hoping to achieve, that is valuable. That is what's valuable. That is really what's valuable. This B is looking for Subhana wa Tada, what do you want? What is your life about? When you sit there? And all you ask about or you ask for issues of dunya I want to call and I want to host and I want to this and I want I want to be able to travel every year to the Bahamas and I want to be able to know you can ask for these things. It's fine. But it's also telling Allah what you're like, what you're about who you are. When you sit there say Oh, Rob, Rob, I want to be in Jannah. Rob, I want to be a

00:27:43--> 00:28:10

better person. You don't ever want to be I don't want to send any more thought I want to be committed to your word. Y'all know that wants to know the Quran, you're going to learn your deen, you're gonna want to be a better son, a better daughter, a better friend, a better mother, a better father, a better husband, a better wife, a better human being, I want to improve. I don't want to have these bad impulses. I want to make these mistakes. You're telling him about yourself? Subhanallah What are you talking about? You at least acknowledge the mistakes you're making. And you'll know what's better. And that is very valuable. Because if he knows that about you, then

00:28:10--> 00:28:22

that's at least something you can defend yourself with your mill piano that I didn't do very well, but I know it was right and it was always remorseful that I wasn't doing it right. That's why I kept on asking you for help. But maybe if you're asking for these things, you're not working towards them. There's a problem to

00:28:23--> 00:28:56

this dua is basically the phone you pick up the phone, you speak to God never put it down, never put down never never never put down that phone. His. I purposely left this quote but towards the end because Ramadan is coming up soon is a good time to start preparing yourself. Ramadan is where you pick up that habit. So you can do it for the rest of your life. And you're always in connection with Allah subhanaw taala to start preparing what you can ask for. It's a big deal if you're going to meet God himself. What would you ask him for? What would you ask him for? What would be worthy of asking for? What would be actually valuable to ask for Think about that? That's a big question. The

00:28:56--> 00:29:27

big question children may may you know, wing something silly. But for you as a human being who's seen life, what is it that you want? What's worthy of asking God to give you what's really worth it? What's not? What's not worth asking? Allah subhanaw taala for? Well, I my teachers would say a saint he would be would never ask Allah subhanaw taala for an issue of dunya ever would never ask him for a house or a car or for a computer or for a better phone or for he wouldn't ask him for that. Because that's a waste. Why are you asking Allah if there was something even though they did, then you can do with it. And when Allah Sheila canali him, you would ask Allah subhanaw taala for for a

00:29:27--> 00:30:00

better shoe, he asked him for everything Subhanallah which is pretty much meant to ask ALLAH SubhanA for everything, but what they were trying to explain is that when you think about it, what's worth asking for? What's really worth talking to Allah subhanaw taala about to begin with. It's a conversation he sees he gets to see what you want, and that's valuable. That's important. Thought about asking for something you get it it's about speaking to Allah subhanaw taala expressing your inner fears Allah protect me from this I'm scared from it. Now you just opened your it's very therapeutic by the way. Oh, it's very so therapeutic if you if you properly before

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

underwriting is one of the most therapeutic things you can ever do if you actually do it, which takes me into the fifth point that I wasn't gonna share with you, but I will share with you anyways.

00:30:10--> 00:30:24

There is not a formal interview, you're not suited up sitting across a table from some person who's asking questions so you don't speak to them like that. You don't speak you know, speak to Allah subhana wa Jai the way he would speak if you're in an interview, not formal.

00:30:25--> 00:31:02

Give me this era. I want this Allahumma know we doing? That's how you would speak to appear. That's how you speak to your speaking to Allah subhana wa Tada, you're a servant. I'm a servant, and he is the King of kings. Who I speak to him. That's why when do we make dua in Salah? When is the moment for it? Or the Prophet? What are your thoughts? I'm explained sujood why you take your head, and you put it on the ground, so that you are in the most humiliated physical appearance that you'll ever be in. So you get hit you You're humiliating yourself, you're putting your head on the ground. And then you start asking because you're groveling, you're not asking, you are begging, you're not asking.

00:31:02--> 00:31:11

That's what supplication is. For the above, it is only made dry this how we would do it. Hands up, head down. They could see the rightness of his of his armpit eyes when he did it.

00:31:13--> 00:31:46

Because he knew who he was speaking to. He knew how to do it. So don't be formal. Don't ask for things that you memorize from the * who does the wizard on Ramadan. Don't do that. I have to do that. I can't. I have to do do the regular stuff because you're all standing behind. When you speak to Allah, take off the mask. It's very refreshing. Take off the mask, peel it off and speak to Allah subhanaw taala as who you are, not who people know you to be when people make dua and Ramadan, we have to keep a certain standard we go through the idea that we have no choice when you speak to Allah subhanaw They don't do that. He sees right through you. What are you doing? It's ridiculous.

00:31:47--> 00:32:22

It's actually very This makes no sense at all. He sees what you're scared of. He sees what you want. He knows who you are. Why are you making your eyes if you're someone else? Why? Why are you keeping the mask on? What's the point of that? Has it been fused on your face? You don't know the difference now between yourself in between the persona that you hold people to see is that what's happened that you don't even know anymore that you've lost yourself with within this within light that you don't even know who you are. You don't even know how to be honest with God and tell him who you are. Actually, there's a problem for you. That is That is scary issue. That is sad. That is sad. If you

00:32:22--> 00:32:57

can't even be honest with God, you got to turn to Allah subhanaw taala you don't need someone to teach you to how to how to have kosher you don't need it. It's not a lesson that can be taught in the masjid the Bible lays on never did all you have to be all you have to be is honest. Just be honest. This just peel off the massive Tip Get rid of the persona speak to him as the scared and weak and tired human being that you are the speak to him as a sinful servant that you've been picked him as the person that you know should be better but isn't speak to him that way. And it'll it'll just happen. Well, Allah hills, you don't have to be taught the lesson of how to cry, it'll just

00:32:57--> 00:33:21

come out because you're finally honest with yourself. You're not by I'm horrible. Everything people know about me is not the truth. But it's truthful. You know, and I'm not a good person. And I want to be better though. And I want to be closer to you say those words that comes out of your heart and it means something. And that's what you're supposed to do. Those speak to Allah subhanaw taala as you're speaking to, to your boss at work, no, they don't know you and you have to hold up persona, if they know who you are, they would fire you.

00:33:23--> 00:33:30

If people knew who I am, they wouldn't let me come up here. I wouldn't be allowed to stand here. That's the reality for all of us. There's no other reality of this.

00:33:31--> 00:33:48

We have to keep we have to do what we can for people. But who are you? Who are you? No one knows. But Allah, why are you speaking to him? Like he doesn't know? Why are you keeping that? Get rid of it? Yeah, he get rid of it and speak to him as who you are. But if you don't know who you are, then I don't know what to tell you. That's what you need to learn to do.

00:33:49--> 00:34:25

It slowly, slowly, you get rid of it. And then it just comes out that emotional piece of you that spirituality will just come out. Because it's a breakthrough. To be fully honest. The real bake rate, it really is. It's an amazing moment, when you're fully honest. When you sit there and you're helpless. And you admit you're helpless. You admit you're lost. You admit you're not doing well. You admit you're scared. You admit you don't have answers. You admit you don't know what you're doing. And you turn to Allah subhanaw taala for support that that's a breakthrough. Now you can go spend a couple of $1,000 with a psychiatrist to see if you can get there or you can just sit down, put your

00:34:25--> 00:35:00

hands up and speak to God with true honesty knowing that he sees right through you. So there's no point of hiding anything. There's no point of denying anything. There's no point of trying to act like no, that's not why you did this. No, that's why he did it. I'm never going to tell you, because that'll just make me look bad. But I can't lie to you. I can't lie to you. You know why he did it? That's all right. If I can at least set it straight with you. I can least get you to forgive me for it then that's a step forward. That's what I wanted to share with you about da please don't treat it the way many people treat it where I want some things I'm gonna ask for it if I don't

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Get it, then I'm going to come to the Sheikh and say,

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

No. Is Allah even real as it was? No.

00:35:08--> 00:35:30

What do you mean? Because you didn't get one? Look how many things you have in your life. It's one thing that you didn't get is this. Oh, how arrogant. Oh entitled are we? One thing that you asked for you didn't get? Suddenly everything else you are given is meaningless, it's worthless, it's useless. It's not important anymore. That is just too much you wouldn't accept that behavior from your child.

00:35:31--> 00:35:40

If you gave them 99 things and missed out on one you'd be you would expect them to be okay with it. Why is it okay for us to do that with Allah subhanaw taala these are the five things I want you to take away.

00:35:42--> 00:36:11

Yes, Allah subhanaw taala 100% response to your DUA and you're commanded to do so. So you're not allowed not to. However, he doesn't give you what you want when you want doesn't mean you're not responding. He's still response. He responds in many ways. cherish those ways and trust him Subhanallah which is number two. Don't build your Eman on a moment of dua that you responded to. I'm not saying that that's a beautiful moment for you know, it's a beautiful he responded to you. But don't build your email on it you need. You need to have other sources of Eman that allows you to get through life.

00:36:13--> 00:36:38

You have to have action with email. You have to work towards what you're asking for or else it's borderline disrespectful not to work towards what you're hoping to achieve or as a little bit of a problem if you don't do it is your conversation with God never stopped speaking to him. Pick up the phone, never put it down. Always speak to Allah subhanaw taala number five. Don't speak to Allah with the persona. Don't cover don't take peel off peel it off. Put it back on when you speak to me

00:36:39--> 00:37:12

when you speak to Allah subhanaw taala speak to him as who you know you are and if you don't know who you are anymore, take some time and learn that again. Not hard it can be done just hurt. It's hurtful but it can be done. Oh that was a benefit. I'm sorry. I'm not going to summarize all that in the article take too much time. I want to keep you here longer.
