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

Hello weeks is reminding you that inshallah our goal is for August to be our outreach month. So we are encouraging, I'm encouraging everyone to try and make sure at least once a week or more if possible, when you come to the masjid you bring, bring someone with you don't come alone, bring someone who doesn't usually come to massage again. And we'll always have a chat with someone here to

00:00:22--> 00:00:49

greet them and meet them and see what we can do to serve them and inshallah find maybe activities for them that they can benefit from and introduce them to people that are within their age group, or maybe help them make some new friends. And obviously, you can hear from me, based on what I'm saying, I'm thinking of the younger generation, but it doesn't matter what the age group is, whoever you bring out, it doesn't matter to me, but I'm, that's kind of what age group I'm thinking about. So keep that in mind, especially.

00:00:50--> 00:01:10

Now it's summer, people are out of school, and people just kind of hanging out, not doing too much. They don't know as much as going on, going on if they're not traveling, just sitting around. Especially Saturday nights when we have our socials but honestly, for any any anytime during especially Muslim in Asia, we always have something going on those, we have some people here there's extension out in front of us and people can sit and kind of chatting, if they're not

00:01:12--> 00:01:45

enthusiastic about coming into a haram or a masjid, they can always use that space. So that's just my reminder, I'll remind you every, every week until the end of the month inshallah to do that. And the goal here is that we have like a 10 15% increase of new faces. And hopefully, we can hold on to some of them and they can, you know, become a part of our community and our network as Muslims that what we hope to do. It's the dollar that matters here at the end, everything else, everything we do, it just means the dollar. If you come here to learn, it's means that for Dawa, you're living this country's mean for Dawa, whatever it is means for you to spread the message. And that's what we are.

00:01:45--> 00:01:57

Slime is like a non financial pyramid scheme, no nonfinancial? No, there's no money involved, we just become we teach you how to do it. So you can go bring someone else teach them how to do it, they do the same thing. There's no money involved and no one's getting ripped off. They're just learning how to do

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

it. That's a bad example. But that's what I thought we could use as a thought. So. So this juice

00:02:06--> 00:02:46

from Georgia Honey, if you attended the last year and a half where we did, where we did the Tafseer of the fourth, or we start from coffee with Hadid and the reason I'm doing from my goal is to do from class to oneness and this halacha it'll take a while but the goal is to kind of have that all recorded. These This is called the first of all the comprehensive and of course, asylum Foster is from Baja to and that's basically on path to a nice you have everything, all of the concepts that were explained in the first 26 Jews are repeated in a condensed manner, it's all there. So if you have all you know what the Quran, then you know enough Inshallah, to carry yourself and to carry

00:02:46--> 00:03:14

others with you as well. I advise people not only to know the meaning of the sutras, but I advise them if you're going to if you are going to memorize some of the Quran if you don't, if you're not someone who has the ability, if memorizing is not your forte, it's not your stronghold, and you don't feel it from off to a nurse, trust me just know from cloth to and you'll get a good like that's a really good piece of the cloth for you to know know it well knows that you can recite it all the time understand it, that is very, very valuable, it is very valid, which is why I'm doing it. So I'm doing the scene of it. And the second time I'm doing it, because I really think it's

00:03:14--> 00:03:37

important and I want it to be there. If later on people want to go back and listen to it. Because once you start understanding how the court it really does help you understand how the front works these philosopher because they have all the different types of sutras, all different types of structures, all the different types of themes. So you get a taste of everything and you have enough knowledge for just learning these last four years that you're you're able to function perfectly as I must have no problem. And this

00:03:39--> 00:03:58

cluster from an analogy that I thought Danny which is the 28 Jews of the Quran has its own group of stories that cluster not all clusters of the sutras actually work in like they don't all come in within the user. Some of them will be less than it used to be more than just It differs but for the last four of the Quran is actually the last part which is that each one is own group of students cluster Hadid and then from

00:04:00--> 00:04:11

him and each other to him is different than the one before it. And the one after it and after it is the only Madani cluster within these last four, aside from Susan beggin and Susan Nasir, within just

00:04:13--> 00:04:48

at the end, from five to a nurse are all lucky aside from this user, from joda time, and now they're not only made any sewers, they're kind of late Melanie Sora. As soon as they came towards the end of his life on a hillside to us and they were early many students, at least not the majority of them. I'll point out some some of them that may have differences of opinion as we go along. But in general, they're most of them are in late MIDI. And what they do is they organize, they organize the Muslim community or society they talk about issues of organization, how we deal with each other how we deal with our with disbelievers. How we deal with our enemies, how we deal with in our account,

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

or how we organize within our community, all the different and we'll go through them one by one. It's very interesting because they actually actually covers almost everything you need to know. And so one thing which I did at the beginning and organizes us within our community is start

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

To set the most probably important pieces, how do we how do we organize within our own community? From a generic perspective, not talking about leadership, specifically, that will be talked about. And so we'll jump on, but as a community, what is it that we need to make sure that we focus on. So so far the themes that certain projects that I have picked up have given us, number one is that oppression will not be tolerated period. The example was Muladhara, or Licata, which is what men did to their spouses to what to women to basically, neither, they will neither keep them as their wives nor divorced him to go to get another marriage, they'll just say something that is sneaky enough to

00:05:34--> 00:05:53

put her in position where she has no way out, she can't get out, she can't stay in. And socially, she'll be shunned if she objects. So this was a very sneaky way just to control them. So that was talked about and talked about the heaviness of the punishment related to it. And the fact that Allah subhanaw taala will hold people accountable for it. So that's the first thing, the second theme was talking about.

00:05:55--> 00:06:04

Najwa. And that's gonna go on for a little bit, but it's going to come in different forms. The first one that we talked about last, last week or the week before, I'm not sure if we did this last week or not.

00:06:05--> 00:06:40

You were on last week, where we remember, we talked about Najwa. Here as in as in secret consultation, when communities are trying to work together. It's not just talking about two people, chatting with a third person and sitting there feeling left out. That's how we explained these verses to children, that's fine. And you should use that as an example to explain it to children that way, don't, don't perform no joy. If you're the three or four of you don't break off and speak and leave the person left out. Really what this verse is talking about is talking about the constantly these verses that we recited, which is number 789. And 10, is talking about secret

00:06:40--> 00:07:16

consultation, when communities are trying to make decisions, or they're trying to work together. And this is a very detrimental aspect of behavior when it comes to community's ability to progress. If we if we perform consult if we work together. And there are discussions that are occurring on a topic. And then when we break off, after we decide that this we're going to do and every small group performs their own secret consultation, and they build a certain degree of resentment, and they start talking about how this person is running. And this person is not responsive. And this people have agendas. And that person, what we ended up having is just barriers and challenges to get

00:07:16--> 00:07:31

anything done. And if you have been at any point in your life on a board or committee of any sort, you know exactly what I'm talking about. This is what ruins this ruins are communal work on every level, in this not even just not for profit, but in any form or manner. When groups don't have to have that lobby,

00:07:32--> 00:08:02

that lobbying mentality within their committees, they don't they don't succeed, whether it's a company, whether it's a non for profit, doesn't matter what it is, if we have that lobbying mentality, meaning we're a group of seven or eight, and we sit down to talk about something, but once we're done, put on isn't as call for that and have another three hour conversation on the same aspect and just go on and on of how things and the this Najwa is what Allah subhanaw taala is talking about, and the students and how it's, of course, and I'm totally new, I don't matter who don't remember who I know, of course, the verse is pointing out that they've already been told not

00:08:02--> 00:08:25

to do it, we don't have the guy that tells them not to do it, there's something the Prophet Allah, your thought was explained in many different equations. That's not should should not be happening. That type of back of back talk should should not should not occur. If you have something to say you come and say it, and you see it within the group and you discuss it openly, instead of this kind of back door agendas, that all they end up leading towards is division, that

00:08:26--> 00:08:59

just lead up to a lot of resentment and division and the lack of any institution, organization or community to actually get anything done. And if you were to ask me, why we are the way we are in the West, this is this is I rank this probably number one, I ranked this as on the top of the list, this is why we're not getting anywhere, because all of our institutions have the exact same problems. 912 13 people on board, everyone, they sit there, fake smiles, fake words, and then they all go back and just complain about everything that happened that day, and nothing gets done. Because no one's really owning anything, there's no championing. And then if one person does decide there's a

00:08:59--> 00:09:22

decision, one person to do it, the rest aren't that engaged so they don't care. So don't get don't actually don't help, so it doesn't get done. And this problem and that's what this is talking about, is in our job listening with the warning and also to pursue with our job Guca yoga, we might not even they can't even stay, they can't even keep a straight face with you. They're going to say to you what they need to say. They're not able to actually express what they have on the inside. And they say,

00:09:23--> 00:09:53

Allah who we might not put if you were wrong, if this was not bad, then Allah would have punished us for it. No, that's not the case. That's a bad argument. Never make that argument. It's not a good argument. Just because you did it and you didn't get a harsh response from God Himself doesn't mean that what you're doing is correct. Many of Guam were punished yo TM and left to do whatever they wanted to do. And duniya Yeoman hit Allah Who Yeah, and he will, he will grant you time but he will not neglect you or forget about you. So it's not a good it's not a good argument to say that, you know, I did it and didn't really, you know, nothing really happened. No, that's not how that's not

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

how you judge something being correct or incorrect. And then in the eye is after the data everything is talking to the believers that

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

An adjective if you're going to perform, you know, secret counseling or secret conversations afterwards for that job if needed or do anyone else to do business with another job stability with taqwa, may they may that talk afterwards be a bitter and duck want me to help things move along, to encourage each other to work harder for what it is that we're trying to achieve. In the manager, I'm gonna Shavon Lea, who's gonna let you know what he's talking about him she only brings suffering and only brings agony to the to the believers, it only harms them only brings them pain, it does not harm them except through the will of Allah subhanaw taala, but only brings the pain. And this is the

00:10:32--> 00:11:05

what we talked about last time in communities. So we cannot accept oppression in any form or manner, even if it's something that is very specific, even if it's cultural, even as with within marriage, no, it doesn't matter. Oppression is off the table, we cannot allow that. Number two, we cannot allow us we can't allow for the roots or the seeds of division to begin. And even in the form of Nigeria. If you're going to sit with them, somebody's going to talk secretly with them. Make sure Watch your words, watch what you're saying, watch the make sure that you are thinking carefully about the effect of what you're saying to this person. And the effect of these words amongst the

00:11:05--> 00:11:36

group that you're talking about. And how that could affect the larger community and affect people's willingness to perform Dawa and affect the unity of the community and the ability to accomplish anything. So think long and hard. complainers are a big problem within societies, especially societies that are that are minority societies that don't have the proper structure for leadership yet, and they don't have that complainers actually ruin things, you'll just sit around, and they just complain about everything. If you don't, that's not helpful. That brings down the ability for people to do things, it really really sucks them raw morale out of everybody and no one ends up

00:11:36--> 00:12:02

getting anything done. Because you don't notice how problematic is think of things that you always work. If you're working with a group and they only have maybe 10 15% positivity find at least something work with that work with that growth grow that grow that don't, I mean, when I complain, I'm a big pessimist and I'm always pointing out problems. That's the job of the member. That's the job of the member the member doesn't do that. And there's no point of having it you know, we can just put

00:12:03--> 00:12:24

you can just you can just take an old hope from just run it on a TV on the member we can listen to it. The point of the member is to actually point out problems and to point out point out mistakes and to remind people of what they should be doing that's the point of it. So I'm supposed to you're supposed to be negative on the member that's how he was out of his thoughts and I'm honored by the way just to point out I just thought those are very soft spoken human beings so Allah Allah you it was like Mr. Lim,

00:12:25--> 00:12:50

always with a smile, always easygoing, very, very kind and tender until he got on that member. He broke character on the member. It's like he went into a zone out of his swag to us. And this is a Hadith a widow who didn't tell me the authentic generation now always uses Hadith when I do my Joomla or kappa courses. I start with it in a hadith it goes like this kind of a sort of like deciding member,

00:12:52--> 00:13:28

Margiela who who while also to whom were said the vulnerable who can I know whom there will have been Yeah, Paulo Saba co mama certain Uganda member and suddenly is faced with change color, he would become much more congested, his voice would become louder, and he would become physically, visibly angry. And he speaks to the people as if war is upon them telling them so back home, when a circle either in the morning, next morning or the evening, we will all be done. This is how he would give his whole body and soul to central everything was said. And he focused completely. And it would feel after the hotbar that they were they were ready to go and do something ready and go and make a

00:13:28--> 00:13:55

difference Ready and go. That he was trying to charge people some advice. I send them emotionally and intellectually to go and make a difference. And that's what that's what domains are for the support. That's the points here the goal. When I say something on the boat and you want if you walk away from a hope whether you attend, and you are not angry at me that I didn't do my job, like if you walk away and you feel like you're perfect, and I actually feel bad, I have to come back and bring you up. Why did you agree with everything? Now there must be something wrong here, I figured out why you agreed you shouldn't agree, you should actually walk away and struggle with certain

00:13:55--> 00:14:21

things you heard, and it should bother you. You should say in your mind this Jeff doesn't know what he's talking about. And then go back and look at it a week later, and then come to some resolution about the issue. That's the job here. The goal here is to provoke thought is to challenge the norm is to make you feel that maybe some of the thoughts that you've always accepted, maybe they need to be revised. Maybe they need to look looked at again. That is really what we're supposed to be doing here. And I understand this, I don't mind I'm going to see people, that's fine, good, good. This will help you because you'll think because it will force you to think cuz I know what the norm is.

00:14:21--> 00:14:50

And it's very easy to come popular. It takes nothing. The easiest thing as a first year if you can get if you can get as far as to get a microphone and a camera and a mess and a member becoming popular is very simple. Just standard and see if you want to hear I know people wanna hear I know exactly what the majority of people want to hear. I know some people won't want it in the walkway but they're in jority of people want to hear a specific type of rhetoric like the HIPAA that they want to hear the narrative is pretty much the same I know what it is I running it and playing it is no actually very safe. I don't get called any names. I don't be lazy. I gotta get labeled in any

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

form. And the majority people are happy with it and you become part of it but you don't make a difference. Nothing changes and that's not the point of this the point of knowledge is not you are able through knowledge to see what

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

Where the deficits are, where the problems are to point them out, this is a problem that needs to change. Most people don't want to change things. None of us want to change anything, especially when it has to do with their own behavior. And you don't want that you want everyone else to change around us. Right? Especially when you get married, you know, that's what happens. You marry your you expect your spouse to, you know, your two, four, how we look down here, the cabin, they have to go and rotate around you, that's what you expected, then you find out they're not going to do it. So you fight because no one wants to actually change they want to actually admit, yeah, this is a

00:15:27--> 00:15:41

really bad habit that I got here. I have to change it. No one wants to do them. What point is a weekly meeting? I need by the through the word of Allah subhanaw taala. If it's not going to do that for you, because I clicked at least awkward. And I will talk about this in

00:15:42--> 00:16:11

excruciating ly painful, boring rants when we come to historical drama, like I will take you will. And when it comes to drama, if you're not ready to hear this, don't come for that when I will completely go. Because this is this is what it's about. There's no way for us to change if we're not willing to challenge ourselves. And I start with myself honestly, like many things I talk about, I talk about that I'm guilty of similarly to similar to everyone else. I'm not in any way on a pedestal of any sort. I talked about things that I noticed myself first before I even

00:16:12--> 00:16:44

pointed out to the community, but that's what we're supposed to be doing here. And that's why I think this juicer is very, very interesting. It's very, very relevant to us, from Corfu, Hadid, it was spiritually from an Eman perspective, very relative very relevant, sorry, from the management, they're very relevant, it gave you an answer to all the hard questions you have to ask yourself, Are you someone of? Are you someone of purpose? Are you someone of guidance? Are you someone of knowledge and certainty? Are you someone who understands what to do with the bounties and blessing that they're given in life? Or do you know who you're going to be? yomo PM? And how would you

00:16:44--> 00:17:12

balance out this faith spiritually? And materialistically? These are the questions you have to ask yourself, you have to answer them, then you have to walk that path with either a data how do you know here's how you're going to organize your community. All right, let's start with yourself, you do not oppress one another. And you don't do this secret backstab counseling, you have to work together and improve this whole Najwa thing. Whereas I'm going to take my friend because he and I agreed, and we're going to pick her and we're going to build all this negativity. And then we look for other people who are just as bitter and negative as us. And we're going to do that. And we're

00:17:12--> 00:17:43

going to take it to whom to our brothers and sister, we're trying to do a job because we don't like an aspect of their work. We don't agree with every detail of the decisions that they've made. Or we think that maybe we differ with them on an aspect of God or fit or Sudoku or whatever it is we agree or disagree with that kills communities really tears them down to the you ruin, especially if you are a minority. Now this is these verses were given when the Muslims were a majority within Medina. That's why it's important that context understand, this is what this these verses were revealed to the Muslim community, as a majority, a large community. And you're being told don't do that. I

00:17:43--> 00:18:17

cannot emphasize how much more important this is, when you're a minority, I can't even begin to emphasize how important this is when you're a small group where you can't afford to make mistakes, where you're already extremely weak. And the numbers are very few there's not a lot of money and your rights and your privileges and your your stance within your years where you exist. Your your position in the society that you're a part of the country that are part of is already at stake is already questionable. To can't afford to be weaker, you can't afford to be more defiled. Well, it's very pathetic how we are as Muslims in the West it's very, very sad saddening when I lose when you

00:18:17--> 00:18:34

actually go and really learn how you know how stretched we are how we're divided, however small every 15 Muslims think that they're going to change the world from their little, no, we're not we're a part of a bigger picture. You're a part this a part of a bigger picture, we feed into the larger

00:18:35--> 00:19:04

purpose of this OMA, we are part of every Masjid in the city, every Masjid in the country have invested in the continent, we are one with them, even though we may not agree with them on everything doesn't matter, we will continue to work with them direct in the same direction, we will serve them and we will strengthen them. And we will advertise for them. And we will promote what they're doing. And we will put up with whatever we have to put up with because there's nowhere else to go and there's nothing there's nothing else you can do. And this was something we did it will teach you the concepts that we're being taught here. I'm giving you the rundown of what God was

00:19:04--> 00:19:17

trying to tell you. To do this, you have to see it that way. Now that requires only one thing. It requires going getting over yourself. You have to we have to get ourselves I have to get over my own ego in order to do that. It's very easy when you have enough.

00:19:19--> 00:19:31

You have enough support and enough people to say I don't need others. I will just focus on mine. And that's not healthy imam who does that is actually for has fallen has slipped the moment I say you know what?

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

Get rid of everyone else. I'm not gonna use a bad word. Everyone else can go do whatever they want to do. This is our community. This is our group. This is our message we will do we will think I know that I've slipped, you can come and tell them you know, you slipped. That's not how this works. Now this works. You're a part of a bigger, bigger picture here. You don't have I don't have the liberty to go ahead and say these things. I know the liberty to act like I live on my own. We're a part of our own or we're all our own little thing here. No, no, no, no who did that? You know where the Muslims event are painfully

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

So historically, where we can actually take the stories and read them slowly and watch and just sob, they did that the endless. And under those, they did that, at towards the end, that's exactly what happened. That is literally what happened. Because they were so wealthy, and they were so rich in their culture at that time in comparison to everyone around them, the whole continent was lost

00:20:21--> 00:20:54

the whole continent that they were, so they didn't know what to most people know how to read, then there was was it. It was just books. Everywhere people had, there was an abundance before printers. Before we learned how to printing, abundance of books and knowledge, they the language itself, the Arabic language was the language to learn if you want to be intimate intellectual before it became Latin, a couple of centuries later. And then in the English afterwards, it was Arabic for a very long time, that piece of history, sometimes you're not told, but that's really what's in the books. And when they start to fight, and each Kingdom decided that they could stand alone, because they

00:20:54--> 00:21:25

were supported within they all fell individually. They all fell individually, and they lost everything. So we don't have the luxury to do that. And we should learn from our history. No, no, no, of course, this is not. There's a lot of differences between them and us. We're not a country in any form or manner. We're but the same concept applies. Well, you can't exist as an as a silo. You're on your own, and you're on your own island and everyone else can do their own thing because they don't seem to be we can't work with them. They're so difficult. They're so which is the truth. Here's the truth, it totally is the truth for most times, but that doesn't matter. It doesn't

00:21:25--> 00:22:01

matter. Because we can't afford not to this is something that we have to all understand that we have no way. Don't don't even entertain the idea. As as attractive. As that idea every once in a while is as attractive as it is and say you know what, I just close. Let them do what they want to do. Let's just focus on it. No, no, no, I know it's attractive. Sometimes you're tired. But no, I'm telling you to live in a new one in New York. Don't don't do that stay a part of everything stay a part of your OMA is the bigger picture that has to stay alive. Okay. So that those are the two themes so far. This the site in Charlotte a number 11 and 12. And you'll see that the themes will kind of

00:22:01--> 00:22:09

change as it goes along. Or there's sort of a focus on different examples in terms of organization and they're very interesting. So we'll start with number 11 Nichelle Aton

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

Billa he Nina shining upon your body

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim.

00:22:25--> 00:22:33

Yeah, a U haul levena M and either P La La Quinta for Sahoo

00:22:41--> 00:22:58

so watch out for them oh dude is that's what kind of makes this difficult if you don't pay attention to the to the mid to the long it's a four account so yeah, that's four account and then it Lavina Ooh, there's another forecast. So listen to those carefully and get them right definitely SACU feel magically see FAFSA who

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

Yes, sir. Hila hula comb.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

What either Nealon Xu Zhu fun Xu Zhu

00:23:16--> 00:23:21

Yaga we levena looming ghoom

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

well Lavina Ooh to imagine that

00:23:35--> 00:23:39

we're long who beam at our Malou Luna Hobi

00:23:43--> 00:24:21

so watch out for the for some of these words. So if you have a healer house you see this has a castle you have a hill that's called job Paula as I explained to you in a moment and your father in law who as well you'll find in the whole arena minimum income. So he says to pilots are those who believe either the electron if you are told to first self image this mean give space within your images within your gatherings or your settings. And again, there are two understandings with this verse is most of the sooner we'll have one that is very simple. And I agree with it. There's no I'm not actually challenging it or debating it. I'm saying it that is one of them is offering another

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

perspective another angle to look at it. If you're sitting in a group and you're told to open up offer space to others, then you do that FAFSA with an open up an offer space and first is space. It's time where you're or a place where you have a little bit of a room or air to place to breathe. So FAFSA homing open up space you have circular will come Allah subhanaw taala will open up space for you. Meaning is something he will do for you subhanaw taala and figuratively or in your life or on the Day of Judgment. What either thing I never said on the show zoo ownership so means get up and go do something. It is to elevate yourself and your shoes is the concept of elevation. So if you're

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

sitting and you

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

and the and the context series to leave or to move somewhere else without dealing Xu, Zhu fetishism, then go ahead and leave and or go to where you're told to go. You have a very low hula Deena Avenue men come well, Latina uitterlinden Madera. Yes, if you do that one, then Allah subhanaw taala will elevate the ones who have knowledge.

00:25:19--> 00:25:52

The believers and the ones who have knowledgeable of the Notre Dame Adonijah ranks, ranks, ranks upon ranks. So that's the basic understanding of the law. And you can use that in any example as as Juma prayer is that people want the house fine. Always make sure you open space, if someone asks you to, you know, take a step aside, allow someone else's, especially if someone's elder. And the examples of this and it's about when the Zune is that some people from budder came to attend the Juma and the Prophet Allah is awesome, ask people to open up space and ask some people to move for them to sit up front, there is questioning of the authenticity of the story. But that's the story

00:25:52--> 00:26:01

that we have. Now let's take this a little bit more if you understand what we're doing, which is trying to explain this actually analyze this idea from a organizational perspective in the community.

00:26:02--> 00:26:40

So I don't think the space here is physical. I think the space here is a literal idea. Meaning either Athena elecom defesa often Majelis offer people space festivals and offer them space, Allah will do the same for you. There's the concept to make making sure that people have space within their communities, they have space to speak, they have space to exist, me they don't, they're not marginalized, they're not put on the side, they are not blocked or unwelcomed when they're trying to actually have access, if they're coming in. And it seems to you that our community is already full, we don't have the space for anyone else to come in and say anything, no FAFSA will offer them space,

00:26:40--> 00:27:13

make sure that they have a place. Again, when I say that fit literally you under you, it's easy to imagine you're just imagining Joma hutzpah and you're trying to offer someone a place to sit. Now think of it in a more an a broader in a broader way. They're coming in make sure they have space is a place for them, there's a place for them within our community, figuratively speaking, they're there. They don't have to fight for their validity. They want to fight to have a spot. No, they already have it because they're Muslim. And we will do that for them, you'd have to go and of course, this is something is being offered the cleaning company being told to do that mean, there

00:27:13--> 00:27:47

are people who are actually directing others. I mean, there's some form of leadership, and we're making sure that leadership is making sure that everyone has a spot, everyone has a place everyone is being welcomed, everyone can participate. And under shows who here is not just get up and move. It's when someone is delegating something to someone else. giving them something to do without feeling should do functions. If you're given something you're asked to move from one position to the other, meaning you are upfront. And then you're asked to move again, literally, it's very simple. You're up here and I say How about, can you sit over there, let the Haji come sit here. And if

00:27:47--> 00:28:18

you're understand that you'll be you'll be of course, you have no problem. But let's think about this figuratively as well and take a more broader stroke on it. And when we look at it, when you're told maybe this is not the right position for you, isn't our greatest spot, this is not what you're good at. So maybe you do something different functions, then you go ahead and do that. You don't have to be at the steering wheel, you don't have to be in the front row, you can be somewhere else it does. Not everyone's going to be carrying a microphone, not everyone is going to be the face the media is going to go through not everyone's going to be not everyone's going to be that some people

00:28:18--> 00:28:50

you need every aspect, you need all types of people to run a community, you need all types of people to get things done, everyone is valuable. And if you're given if you're asked to change financials, we should go somewhere where you are not or do something that you're not doing right now, then go ahead and do that. Do not find that difficult, and do not make participate in the way that you're being asked to participate, participate wherever the need is. And if you do that, so the first one if you do, if you just make sure that you offer people space, and make sure that they have a place and that they they belong and they're welcomed Allah Subhanallah will do the same for you. You will

00:28:50--> 00:29:21

use Illa hula comb, you will find that that's going to be offered to you by Allah. And if you make sure that you do your part, you participate in the way that you're being asked to participate in, or you you follow the commands of the leadership that you're a part of, but you're willing to do maybe something that you weren't doing before or remove yourself from position that you thought was good for you. And you do that then Allah subhanaw taala will elevate the believers who are willing to actually hold on to their covenants, and the ones who have knowledge, because that's how this works. We have to bring forward people who have knowledge, people who have the proper training in every

00:29:21--> 00:29:39

form of life. Now in every walk of life, this is very important, is very, very important. If I love Lena Avinoam income will Latina Otto an enema? The concept of Ultron. And the problem with communities is when we have people who lacked knowledge in positions where knowledge is 100% needed, right? And of course that's not easy

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

to change

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

because everyone thinks they have a lot of knowledge. That's the human nature. Everyone feels that they are knowledgeable, they've been trained and taught and that they have something. So the first one is saying everyone has a has a place to speak that not everyone can come and say something does. You're not to have knowledge. Everyone can go ahead and

00:30:00--> 00:30:28

No one should feel that they're unwelcomed, that their opinion doesn't matter or that they don't have a place that they come in, and that no one wants to know their everyone. I don't know if everyone can participate, everyone's opinion will be heard, but then furnishes will there will be some movement. Not everyone will be sitting up front. Again, figuratively speaking not I'm not talking literally, if you understand what this is right to say he's not talking literally figured he was me Not everyone's going to be in a leadership position. Now everyone's opinion is going to be followed. Not every you have to have another, you know, alternate element, you need people who are

00:30:28--> 00:30:37

trained people have the proper knowledge, not just Islamic knowledge. Well, he's not, I'm not even talking about in my mind, as I taught to give you this example. I'm not thinking of Islamic knowledge, even though that's a huge need.

00:30:39--> 00:31:05

If I can just get it people who are not properly educated to stop talking about Islamic issues, we'd be in such a better position. Like there's so much but I'm not gonna go down down that route. I'm gonna leave that alone, because that is self serving. Because if that's my domain, and that's what I would hope people would do. They stop getting fed to stop explaining things stop acting like you know what you're talking about. You read a book or two or you listen to a show for a year or two on YouTube. Don't come in. Don't Don't do that. That's not fair. That's not fair. That's not fair. You listen to this guy. You like him? That's great. I'll lay by the creek, we'll see how Oh, yeah,

00:31:05--> 00:31:34

that's not an education. That's not an Islamic education. It's not 25 years of spending with that's not you can't compare that to you. I can't have you gotta give you a Goliaths book of pathology. You read it, and they come and he starts arguing with me medicine. I wouldn't if that doesn't work that way. I don't come and do that to you. Well, I a plumber comes to my home. I don't ask him any questions I opened the door to do I don't know, I have no idea what I don't say no. Maybe try the other one. The one that has the bigger. I don't know what I'm talking about. I've never done this before. Why am I giving an opinion on somebody don't understand. Go ahead. You are the person who

00:31:34--> 00:32:03

has to do they do it. If you respect people's professional lism. Respect their merit, respect their credentials, respect the time they've spent? If you don't have any of that? That's okay. It doesn't mean that. I'm just saying it doesn't mean don't have a space? No, no, you always have a place that you always have a place or a place to offer your opinion. And to bring forward whatever concerns that you have totally. But when you know that you're not qualified to talk about things, give that opinions and only choose to and then move yourself when you're told to people who know what they're doing can do that thing and support them. Don't break off into small groups where you start your

00:32:03--> 00:32:37

secret counseling because you didn't work didn't do exactly what you want it No, no, just continue to support it. Like this is a big deal. And this because this works in every form of life, like in every walk of life and every discipline. If you don't know what you're doing, then don't do it. Why? Why give it a wholehearted opinion. If you don't know what you're talking about. You don't have to give an opinion on everything. Keep it to when it's something that you know, and then talk about what you do know that doesn't mean people don't have the right to speak that's the first piece of the verse everyone does but then we have to make sure that there's a dirty lunches venture so if

00:32:37--> 00:32:47

you're removing put in different places please go to the place as the you know the widow or the Sahaba they worked in whatever wherever the Prophet Allah you saw those and put them they were fine.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

They were fine wherever he put them. And

00:32:52--> 00:32:59

they weren't all leaders all the time. Many of them were never given leadership with other ones asked jasola I've been with you from day six

00:33:01--> 00:33:12

these guys accepted Islam yesterday I've been with you through them count the number of spear Yanyu injuries and my back hit by these guys that are now leading me.

00:33:13--> 00:33:20

Yeah, that one narration where he points Dumbledore and he says he's leading me and this is from him. Okay, he did this

00:33:22--> 00:33:53

How does this work? So he told him it you saw to Islam if there were two people you want another person you wouldn't be the Emir you wouldn't you wouldn't lead who just you and another person would make whoever the other person I don't care what he is. He'll be your You can't leave. You can't. Is that okay? Ever never complained again. Continue to work. He was there for every single customer. He went with him every single time right? You didn't get a disgruntled. You didn't get up and say enough is enough and leave he didn't do too. You could have done apostasy. So you know what? I've been here from the beginning. I have seen nothing. No, he continued. He stood by him said Allah as I

00:33:53--> 00:34:24

said until the last moment. And he said by Oh my goodness. And by Amara you never never know. Or disgruntled. Even though it's a very when I read that hadith. I'm like, How could he? How can he hear that? I feel offended. And I was younger. I used to read that. I didn't wonder how how is it possible that you hear that and I'm gonna offend and then I learned that this is not talking about his value. The Prophet alayhi salam was not talking about his value at all. He's telling you about him. This is where the healing issues will find you. This is not your spot. This is not what you're good at this much. This is not where you can be of service to the Muslim ummah. And he was like,

00:34:24--> 00:34:52

okay, that's, I'm glad you told me because I thought I should, you know, I thought you should do this. No, you're not good at this. I know you. So he was okay with that said Allah. Allah is like you said, I mean, new people, new people. So he told them, that he wasn't scared to tell them what it was because that's how this works. Not everyone is going to be where they want to be. Sometimes you think you should be in a place, but that's not for you. You just don't have the skill set. You don't have the credentials. You don't have the actual training for it. You need time. And you we have a community where there is no training and there's no coaching and there's no mentoring. So

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

it's just one big subtlety is everything. Just everyone just wants to do everything at all times in all places. That's how this works. There has to be some degree of

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

Have an idea of filtering, it doesn't mean that anyone doesn't have a spot. That's the beauty of this is in my view. This is why I love this idea because it starts out by saying everyone the festival FAFSA, everyone gets a spot, everyone will find a space for everyone to

00:35:17--> 00:35:51

express themselves and and say what they want. But then the way that you didn't choose who finishes when it said, okay, this person here this person there you move right you move around marriage and credentials will speak we have to allow. Well, we gave up the elder system. We lost a lot. By the way. The older system is not a backward system is not a jargony system. Now, we're not talking about deja Helia. We are running tribes where one person speaks everyone be quiet all times. No, I'm talking about the concept of there being elders, someone who's experienced someone who has has has wisdom and has knowledge and knows what they're talking about and has the best interest of the

00:35:51--> 00:36:20

people in front of them in their hearts to speak once we gave that up and families don't have that anymore. families that don't have the elders or families that won't survive you need an elder you need someone to go to someone to to give judgment someone to result for resolution sake for resolving problems for fixing disputes for getting rid of animosities you need someone without that it doesn't work. It doesn't work, which is why we live the way we live, which is why families are scattered all over the place and everyone's doing their own thing. And people honestly in Arabic there's there's a nice

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

Syrian proverb

00:36:24--> 00:36:49

because he might look below where I could be if you don't have someone you don't have an elder you go look for one. If you don't have an elder someone, a reference someone to look to go back and ask what do I do? Like I'm confused. Life is difficult. It's normal. Don't act like you. You got it all figured out. Who you kidding? You think you're kidding anybody? And especially if you're young, you think you're kidding? I got it all figured out? No, you don't? Do you mind to no one has it figured out? Even the people I've spoken to no one hasn't figured out Danny no one.

00:36:50--> 00:37:20

Of course you don't have it figured out. That's the that's the norm. It's impossible. If you do have it all figured out, then you're the Messiah. And we should all go right behind you. Everyone is confused. Everyone is trying to figure it out to the best of their ability to trying hard. Who is your reference? Who is your elder? Who do you go to? Who do you go to to give you some advice on things and then you take that advice when you have no idea what to do. That's how I lived my life. I go back, there's people whose mission is to your parents, your people who go to you say what? I want to do this, this makes sense? No. All right. All right, fine. If no, no, that's okay, fine. I don't

00:37:20--> 00:37:49

I don't see it yet. But fine. I have never regretted a decision like that, by the way. If you're 18 and 19. And you're like my parents are saying I shouldn't do this. But I don't see why I've never regretted a decision in my life where I did that. And they said no, and I didn't see why. And I never regretted it not once, not once you don't regret it, it's always it's always a good decision. Because these are things you just can't see. And it's not your fault. And you're not supposed to be able to see it and no one should be should be shaming you because you can't see it. It's just you're not in that position yet. That's okay. Life is funny and how it works. It takes time you have to you

00:37:49--> 00:38:20

have to cross a line, then you look back at Oh, no, I understand why they were saying that not everything can be articulated as clearly as you hope it will be. And not all the reasonings make sense to you when you're 19. But when you're 39 will make a lot of sense to you. Oh, a lot of sense to you, and your night team certain things. So that's all that matters? No, no, the 39 version of you will look back at the 19 version of you and wish they could just put it in a room where there's a baseball bat. And they can just weigh a lot. And because you have no idea what you're doing, you don't know how much you're harming yourself in some of these because you're not listening. I've no

00:38:20--> 00:38:33

elder no one's there's no one there to guide you can use function the same problematic way. If you have children out there. Yeah, people have no idea what they're doing, taking the reins of things and moving them forward. Of course, we're gonna hit walls, of course, we're going to

00:38:34--> 00:39:03

fall splat on our faces because we don't have the right was not proper. We don't have it set up, right. People don't know what they're talking about are leading, we're not actually going and looking, who knows what they're talking about who is knowledgeable within this field, bring that person and beg them to actually take this and make decisions, even if they're wrong. Well, I made the wrong decision of an experience to wise qualified human being is better than the correct decision of someone who is naive and doesn't know what they're talking about. Well, lucky, a wrong decision there is better than a right decision here. Because this person here doesn't know whether

00:39:03--> 00:39:34

they're right or wrong. But this person here if they once they move forward, they'll know right away if it's wrong, and they'll make a change because they know all the parameters you know how to measure things. This person has no idea it's a trial and error they're learning. You don't wanna you want a community can be a guinea pig for people's leadership skills. We can't we can try it we got some someone can't train themselves to leadership on a community, which is a minority. No, no, no, no, that doesn't work you need to bring people have actually done work. And I what I found and this can be for example, it wasn't for me to hear, Oh, we have an abundance of people. Not one of them by

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

the way. Those are not even close. Now. I don't even rank I do one thing I just do. This is all I do. I explain it to you and welcome. I don't have to change a light bulb. Well, I know my skill set at two things. I can talk about the Quran. And if someone has the idea specific type of disease I can treat. That's it. I have no other skill set at all. But I know people who do I know people are very well. Very, very well very qualified. But we were not willing to walk. We're not willing to actually win

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

Not willing, we're not willing to a lot we're not willing, again, is enough comes in the middle of it. But I think that's the case because people don't have space. I think that because the first piece of this is not being being followed, the second piece is not going to work either. The first piece is that everyone has to be welcomed, and everyone has to have a spot. Everyone has to have a place everybody, every one has to be well, hello to everyone who matter who you are, you have a spot and you are and your concerns have to be heard. You have to be listened to and you have to be given the place to actually say what you say your two cents and people aren't, we have to be open to that.

00:40:30--> 00:41:00

And if we do that correctly, then we're feeling Sousou Funches we can get that done. We can start actually moving people to do what they can do. And then your Viola holiday in terminal Minko Latina ot dermatology then things will start to elevate rank upon rank based on people's merits. Allah will be my time doing a hobby and that's why he says hobby because the problem the actual obstacle between us and achieving that is something happening on the inside. That's why he says hobby or career. So you need to look at and I've talked about this a couple of times, I won't bore you with it too long. But when Allah subhanaw taala talked, we talked about Allah's omniscience, here's the

00:41:00--> 00:41:31

omniscient theologian. So he's Aleem under that we also have he is sanea and as we'll see here, and he's a lovely fellow Sabir right these are the five and there's other names, but there are more witness based like Rocky even Shaheed and Hatfield and whatnot. But when we say send me and Eileen, Eileen is the is the generic term he knows all Semia has to be something you're being st you're saying, well see it, it has to be something you're doing nothing, it has to be something that is undetectable. Something that is so delicate that you don't even notice hobby, it has to be something that is within the knifes when you go through the Quran, whenever you see those names, know exactly

00:41:31--> 00:41:55

what to look for. Those names are there to actually echo something. So Allah who might I want to hear? He knows what it is that you're doing, in terms of why you're doing it. That's what you do when you're doing something he knows why why are you doing it? What's what's causing you not to do it? Why are you fighting? Why are you against this person? Why don't? Why are you pushing back at someone who knows more than you or has should be in that position much more than you should be in that position. And

00:41:56--> 00:42:26

there's something else. So that's the that's the idea number 11 is one of the most beautiful verses in this and this sort of for sure, I love it. And it's very, very meaningful, and actually does a beautiful way of just Smartlist two things just organize a little bit, you need to give people space. And then you need to make sure you put people in the right positions. And if you don't do that, then you're going nowhere if you don't have the ranking of email and and you're looking for someone who has Amen, someone who has to have has that and has the right skill set has they know what they're talking about. And honestly, communities don't really need a lot of people who have

00:42:26--> 00:42:49

Islamic knowledge they don't hear for more than enough just to offer the information and meet people have other skill sets. When it comes to getting things done. You need people who have financial and social and academic issues of leadership and management and even family and marriage and therapy. These are the types of qualifications that are actually needed in order for things to work out.

00:42:50--> 00:42:55

So that's number 11. This is just read number 12. That little bit of a change of

00:42:56--> 00:43:07

gears but so beautiful these two verses are very beautiful. Shall you'll enjoy them with me. Yeah, Johanna Levine and even je two more Rosu P

00:43:15--> 00:43:23

E then j two more Rasulullah Deen Bina de Niger welcome sadaqa

00:43:30--> 00:43:48

so it's been in that your day that you welcome the Yeah, it's second there's no shutdown via the common mistake Bayonetta D or something they add like a shudder to it or something is being like are they gonna do a campaign a day and you're welcome. But yeah, it just has a screen on it. Nothing else. There Lika Heyyo lacuna elbow how Atwal held

00:43:52--> 00:43:54

so elbow held with the heart isn't broken.

00:43:55--> 00:44:23

My only my own mistake, so that is a whole, there is no 10 there's no one there between the 10 mean and the lamb. So you go from the raw immediately right into the land Velika how you roll, how you roll, there's no knowing how you roll, nothing comes to the nose at all, the new one comes to the nose, that a piece of it is in the tongue in the in the upper palate and a piece of it comes through the nose, the one so there's no one here that piece is highly wooded, there's nothing at all coming through and if you want to, and there's a good way for you to learn how to do this. So when you say for example, if you look at

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

what's what's something that we recited before that

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

it'll be they'll eat and chew,

00:44:31--> 00:45:00

comes through, shoes was coming through the nose, comes through the nose, and then so every new one will always come through the nose as well. So they rarely go high roll a comb, you go from the rock to the lamb, high, your lack of nothing, there's nothing coming through the nose because they're known in the tween does not exist is completely deleted. You go from the rock to the land that has a shutdown on it from now on. That's called the rom com mill below one. And there's a lot of examples of that in the colon. And the one that we're going to the next example

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

is the next word. That's why I talked about it because in limiters, you do it right beside right now. So you see the noon is a full node there because alarm is behind it, the no one ceases to exist. So you go from the Hamza for e to the lamb for Ilam. For LM for ill, there's nothing there's no note at all, it's only exists only exist if you are to stop if you're just say for in and stop. And of course, that's there's no sense in doing that. There's no reason that you should never do that. But if you were to do that, and sometimes scholars will

00:45:30--> 00:46:01

test students of divots there because you have to know is this one where the noon is written or not written? So there's a Ilam in the Quran a couple of times some of them there's a new written and some of them new the new one is not even written it's actually not there so you can't even stop in because there's no new written in the most I mean when they wrote it they didn't add the new so the the knowledge of the person who was doing this they should know where the new one wasn't where the new isn't so it's how you stop yawning in the midst of this and if he will see if you know if you know if there's a nooner if there's not one here there is one obviously and of course that's not

00:46:01--> 00:46:10

something that's relevant to this halacha I thought it would bring them right but it limited G do for in poor health or food or Rahi.

00:46:16--> 00:46:24

a shocker to to put the movie in the Niger workroom for the court

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

but Islam to find what the law who is a common

00:46:44--> 00:46:48

name or solid to zurka

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

while playing hola Hello Ella Sula.

00:47:01--> 00:47:06

Well, long hobby Bhima dama Lou.

00:47:11--> 00:47:14

So here he brings the concept of network back again.

00:47:15--> 00:47:55

Those who believe either Nerja you to move or soon. But here is different. It's not the same concept of Nigeria that we were just reciting back in the page before where that was more secret consultation or secret discussions that were occurring amongst people. After larger ones were happening here is where you go and you ask for private counseling. Because it was a why is the same word used because in Arabic, a word can be versatile, and it's in its usages. As long as the context is being provided, and the context here is being provided when he said EDA and J to more Rasul. When you you're going and seeking counseling from the Prophet, you don't do secret consultation, you

00:47:55--> 00:48:31

don't do that the Prophet alayhi salam is the leader. So this this is not this type of the nature of the first page does not apply with him on a hillside to us. This is more secret counseling, you're asking for private counseling asking for him for his opinion. I want you to think about this before we go through this as if he was around on a hill salatu salam, how many people wants to talk to him about their problems? How many people wants to talk about his problems, every living human being at all times every day, we think we think that we I would think that I am going to be eligible or I'm entitled to a 15 minute counseling session every day with him out of his mouth to imagine what type

00:48:31--> 00:49:01

of life he lived, he lived dahlias. Latos, and this is back then, of course, people felt very similarly, they wanted him to want a piece of him all the time. So Allah Azza wa sallam, he was the type of person who he would never notice or he would never allow, you would never let you know that he was bothered that Allah Hadees It was said that you could never figure it out that you'd never, you'd never come to a point and notice that he is he's upset or he is, you know, frustrated, or he's tired, or he's fed up, he would never let you know that out of your slot there was so people just keep on asking for more. And he was just the type of person that the amount of he's just just a huge

00:49:01--> 00:49:34

heart out of your soul to us. And I'm just an endless, endless supply of empathy and compassion and love. I know you saw those until you just would know but deep inside, he's tired and he wants to go home when he wants to put time with his family and he wants to be just left alone maybe for an afternoon just so he can maybe just be a human being and take a breath and just sit there that eat a date and look at the sky for 15 minutes without being harassed by someone to tell them how their mother in law and his brother sibling and the sun and you know all that stuff and how he's had a nightmare and can you tell him what the dream means? And what about the and all that stuff? So I

00:49:34--> 00:50:00

think it's listed on of course was this is ongoing for him. It happens so much that this I actually was revealed. Yeah, you will in either energy tomorrow. So if you're gonna go and ask for a private counseling session with the private holidays or for Kadeem Bay in a day in a DualCom Bada bing ad meaning right before this is how this is what it means from an linguistic perspective within the Arabic language and being a

00:50:00--> 00:50:35

demeaning right before but what do you mean we offer right before your counseling before your session sadaqa give sadaqa to whom to the Prophet Allah Sato said he doesn't take sadaqa Salah Hi Samuel Salam, and this is so that's already done and he doesn't eat sadaqa notice his family. So the sawdust that's obviously not to him, but it's for the Muslim community. So the way that he is actually mitigating the problem of the number of people who are continuously asking for his attention and time is not to tell them to smarten up and beat you just a moment ago he was saying he does deal with them to fester hope other people might space give them space so that it's not gonna

00:50:35--> 00:51:06

come and say that say how about you give us adequate before you do this. It'll make you think twice not be whatever it whatever your your pocket is going to be harmed by so you don't want to pay for it. You're not actually paying for it. The problem is I'm not taking money, nor someone standing at his door on a hill so I'm taking in money just before you do this. This is a command of God, meaning it's so cheap, it's affordable. If you're gonna go speak to him then it before you go and ask him for Can I have a 10 minute yellow suit Allah, which turns into three and a half hours or something even more? Can I just ask you I sort of love Okay, where's your could you give sadaqa but the movie

00:51:06--> 00:51:21

in a day and you're welcome sadaqa there liquefiable Lacan well to her that is that there's good for you in that and it is more pure for you. It's purifying for you why? Because and this is something I love. The scholars point out, they said why alcohol he said Aloha meaning more pure,

00:51:22--> 00:51:54

is because when you actually ask him for this time said Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam, and you are burdening him with that. The fact that you burdened him out of your Salatu Salam is borderline or reason for Allah subhanaw taala to punish you or to be upset with you or for you to get his wrath. Because once you bother is Habibullah your salatu salam you are worthy of of his punishment of His wrath. subhanho wa Taala to make sure that you're not putting yourself in the position because you sit with him for a long time you ask questions, and he always of course, wouldn't say he'll listen to you it will be very welcoming will come again he'll do it again. But he is tired on the inside.

00:51:54--> 00:52:09

When Allah subhana ceases have been tired that way he gets angry with the one who was causing the tire so you don't put yourself in a position where Allah subhanaw taala is now angry with you because of it give sadaqa upfront so your struggle is to purify whatever cause of harm you're doing. They love that explanation

00:52:10--> 00:52:44

about his mcommerce Allah on your side we seldom fail them because you do and of course if you can't find it to me if you're too poor to do it and you need help fitting Allah for or Amon did Allah subhanaw taala is the Most Forgiving and most Merciful, meaning this is not an issue. It's not a deal breaker. If you don't have money, you can't go ask him a question. You can go ask him a question on his thoughts and but this actually works really well. In terms of the shocker to him and to Kadeem obey Anya Dana DualCom sadhaka Have you found it difficult or have you are you are you at a spa? I mean, are you afraid but it's the fear is more a fear of of be a fear that is mixed with

00:52:44--> 00:53:18

being frustrated or or disgruntled a little bit and you don't like it? I spoke with him when you're busy, we don't like you're afraid and to cut the movie near Dana DualCom Sakata you have to give sadaqa before you go and you ask for private counseling for Islam FDA follows and if you don't do it, what type of Allah Allah when Allah subhanaw taala does grant you repentance for not doing it? For opinion most salata were to Sakata wealthier Allah wa Sudha. So if you don't, if you if you go ahead and you do whatever you want to do, and you don't give sadaqa and Allah grants you that repentance, then at least make sure that you hold yourself to the standards that he holds himself to

00:53:18--> 00:53:51

it, your thought was stolen, meaning make sure that you use this wisely you straighten out, the theme of Salah to Zika is not just the two things or you're asked to do that the symbol of the two acts of worship of Islam is that there are two types of acts of worship. I've said this a number of times try to remember remember this when you go through the Quran. There are two types of acts of worship in Islam. There are acts of worship that are similar that are personal between you and God, which will new Allah subhanaw taala doesn't I don't benefit directly at least I don't benefit. And the symbol for that is economist salah. And then there are acts of worship that other people benefit

00:53:51--> 00:54:25

directly from the symbol for that to soccer. And the reason is because people read these verses they will wear a psalm Ramadan and head drill but he doesn't have to do that chemo Salah encompasses you Psalm Ramadan and had your beta making the shahada because it's all personal stuff. Now it was like under that all of the other acts of worship that help other people like bit anybody they need to think about hoof and all that stuff, all these other acts of worship where you're helping other people. So when the reason that in the Quran, you always find eponymous Salah zuka is because these two acts they symbolize all the acts of worship with this Sunday, they can encompass all of them.

00:54:25--> 00:54:40

That's why I didn't say a theme of Salah was so Mohammed because No that wouldn't that would just I would actually restrict this down to what it is. It's actually much more than just acts of worship between you and God. It's much more than that. So if our theme was still out there, what it was like it encompasses all acts of worship. Well, I'll play it Allah Allah sudo and then obey Allah Spungen, His Prophet.

00:54:42--> 00:54:43

This is actually a really interesting

00:54:44--> 00:54:48

point in the sutra that they're asked to do this. And

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

the point here is a couple of things. First of all, whatever service you take from the community, you owe the community something back for it. You can't take it

00:55:00--> 00:55:31

and walk away. That's not fair. See, it sought to assert I never took anything for himself, we know that we know how he lived his life out here slaughter was that when he passed away, he left nothing behind him. He had left his, his shield as, as a color as collateral for a loan he took to help someone else who had more money than he did. So a lot. It's like Mozilla, you never you didn't take anything of this world with him. So he didn't actually want it wasn't looking for money, he wasn't looking for payment. He wasn't asking for a raise in his salary as the Imam of the muslimeen, or anything, was looking for any of that. But the concept here is that if you're taking, then you must

00:55:31--> 00:55:42

also be giving, you can't just take, you can't just go and expect things and not offer anything. You have to be putting something forward to what is it that you're putting forward?

00:55:43--> 00:56:23

You can't go to massage it and you expect to find certain services and to to get certain things fine, you are entitled to that. I agree. We're not doing a great job trying to get better. But what is it that you're offering? What are you doing? Where is your contribution to the Muslim ummah? Why is it that at what point? When did it become that certain people are responsible for, for servicing the community or the will, and other people are not, they're just they come and they just didn't know, there's no Allah subhanaw, they did not actually assign anyone for this for these roles, we're all responsible. But if we're doing this correctly, we'll make sure that everyone is contributing

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

within the field, that they're good at contributing with it this way I know how to do so I do it. So what does that you know what to do that you should do that as well. So the concept here is actually very interesting that the Prophet Allah, you're supposed to know him as the leader of this home, he belongs to all of us. He belongs to all of us. Otherwise, I said, we are all part of him. And he has thought to Islam, he's a part of us this this. So if you're gonna go take up his time, privately, you're gonna go to ask for your private counseling session with him. I envy the people who got this. So Allah on the right, do you think it's worthy of envy, it's worthy to think about the people

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

actually got that you know that our session, I am sure he fixed all the problems that they had, you know, you just thought was to them. So they're getting a private counseling session with the leader of this whole OMA, who's who's he's for all of us, you get, then do something in return, give something you took, give, give, give what you can, and that's where the ISIS but even if you don't give money, fine, at least make sure that you maintain a high a high standard, at least make sure that you take what you from commodities, and you'll maintain the highest standard if you can, if you can give wealth, but give something I think this is the concept that's being taught here, in

00:57:30--> 00:57:58

addition to the fact that the leaders do this shouldn't. They're not, they shouldn't be looking for money, and they shouldn't be taking money. And that shouldn't be the relationship that exists. That's not what this is about. It's not about the wealth, not about the money. It's not about making sure he's getting no, no, he's not asking for money for himself. And that's not what this is about. The third point is that we have to respect these people's time, if we're trying to, you know, hit them with Rasul at the time, he was a leader, a leader within the committee, you have to respect people's time. And make sure make sure that we don't overburden people with these type of requests

00:57:58--> 00:58:32

and private counseling and such, make sure that your that's something that's being observed and watched. So a couple of lessons within these two verses. And if you look at the our ends will be it'll be my time doing it, the one before it will log my time we're doing a hobby. The reason there's a difference is that Allah subhanaw taala took his name, and he put it earlier within the within the last email and with it within this, the end of the sutra and, and whenever a word is moved from one position to the other, is to emphasize it. So Allah Hawkmoth, I'm gonna be here, that is how this that's how the sentence was ALLAH regarding what you know, what would you do is

00:58:32--> 00:59:04

knowledgeable within your intentions. So now the second area, he could just repeat the same one, giving the same idea, but he didn't subpoena with data, he took the word, copy it and put it up front, to emphasize that he's for sure knows, he knows the first time but here's to emphasize that he knows for sure your intentions when you're doing these things, when you go and ask for time. And when you say I don't have enough money to give sadaqa he knows subhanaw taala whether you're whether you're actually you real about that, or whether you're not and whether your intentions are pure or not, whether you're saying the truth or not. So we noticed a panda with data. And why he emphasized

00:59:04--> 00:59:37

his knowledge of it is because he's trying to emphasize how much he cares about the Prophet Allah, he's awesome as well being us caring and Allah subhanaw taala, caring about the well being of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is for us, and I'll talk about this next time because we're running out of time is emphasis on the well being of the leaders who are going to be in those positions, is the emphasis on the people in those positions to make sure they can do their job, that they're not being consistently taken, that their time was should be for the group is not being taken by individuals. And if it's going to be taken by individuals, those individuals are actually required to give back.

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

So understanding is a very beautiful social contract that it's very, very deep and very profound. It turns out, I will summarize for you Inshallah, at the end next week will be a delight to complete it will have we will complete it. It'd be the night next week. And I'll summarize for you all these ideas that are very meaningful in terms of organizing our work, and I find them to be something for our community for our example to be very real very relevant, and something that we can actually if we make some

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

changes within you'll see a huge difference in how we function moving forward I'll end with that some Hello Hemmingsen Allah you know just talking to Blake also Allah who was telling them about
