00:04:08--> 00:04:43

the series that I started a number of weeks ago, where we are going through the sooner the sooner the unfurl and extracting the laws of success or victory according to Nasir, as scholars have pointed out, the sooner to be the one that speaks of these issues. And the sooner has within it around 25 difference or separate separate laws, I won't go through all of them, but I'm going to point out a number of them that I think are important, and I've went through maybe six or seven already. And today, this law that we find is within file is in my in my opinion, probably the most interest of them all and interesting of them all.

00:04:45--> 00:04:58

And the reason being is that you find it to be the case when we watch what's happening on the other side of the world, to our brothers and sisters and Philistine and Muslim. When you see what's happening to them the

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

the ad

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

memorable aspect of it. From our perspective, when we watch what goes on to them specifically when we see them is their reactions is how they deal with the loss is how they deal with the agony and with the pain, how they actually respond to a calamity that's occurring to their lives on a personal level, that is extremely difficult to comprehend sometimes. And that piece is I'm separating that piece a little bit and taking, taking it out in silo just to talk about because it's for sure worth mentioning. And it's mentioned in this surah, as well. So I think there's something here for us to think about. When we think about the laws of victory we're talking about, we're talking about unity,

00:05:41--> 00:06:18

and we're talking about adherence, and we're talking about putting wealth, and we're talking about preparation, things that are extremely practical, and truly, and rightfully so. But there's an aspect of it as well, that goes a little bit beyond that. And it's a little bit more profound and runs little bit deeper, which is that connection that they have with Allah subhanho wa taala. That's that understanding of the world that allows you to accept whatever it is Allah subhanaw taala sends your way, whatever, whatever occurs to you in your life and being able to deal with it, regardless of of how severe it may be, or how, how, how much of a doomsday picture it may draw for you.

00:06:19--> 00:06:45

And that's just a piece that I think a lot of us watch and just feel very humbled by it, it almost it almost puts you in a position where you feel very ashamed of yourself. When you find these people who are counting five, or six or 10, or 1590 marchers within their own family that they lost all in one all at once. All within a moment. They just lost maybe half of their family, people they've known all their lives, people that they love.

00:06:46--> 00:07:21

Sometimes you will watch this and if they don't understand, they may come to a conclusion that maybe these people don't love their loved ones. Maybe they will love their children. What are you talking about? There's no animals love their children. Every every living thing loves this offspring and love loves their families. It's a different aspect of of humanity that they carry, which is this connection that they have with Allah Subhan the only reason that they're able to actually continue to persevere during these extremely dark times is this connection that they have with Allah subhanaw taala allows them to say hamdulillah they say that hola Quwata illa biLlah and inland Allahu alayhi

00:07:21--> 00:07:54

Raji Odin husband Allah who went to Milwaukee to say these words and just keep on going and pick up whatever is left and gather and rally whoever is still around and move out to somewhere else and just keep on moving forward. Is he without that piece it's impossible it really is it's not any of you got everything I'm telling you is almost useless and has no worth at all if that piece is not there. We can talk about putting together Yeah, I need to unifying the Omen instead and prep right and preparing ourselves and putting our money in advocating and we can talk about this stuff day and night until we're blue in the face. But if you don't have a connection with Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:54--> 00:08:32

it's impossible it's impossible that any of this will ever work at all which is why in the midst of the Sunnah when Subhana wa Tada points out these laws he says either lucky don't fit out and he's talking to the believers oh those if you if you are stuck in a position of combat but you're facing your enemy. So first of all to stand your ground and then once guru Allah cathedra was good Allah, Hakka theta and then and then embrace or indulgence in the invocation of Allah a lot like in abundance do it a lot was the Go To Allah haka. theodon la Allah come to flee home and so that maybe you'll find you'll find some success. And it's very interesting why that piece is there. Not really

00:08:32--> 00:08:38

I guess, not really, if you understand how this story works and, and what this deen is about, it's not that

00:08:39--> 00:08:48

it's not that weird, but maybe if you're if you're standing a bit from afar, you're zooming out and you're just thinking about these things pragmatically, meaning you're just looking at the practical aspect of it all the you know,

00:08:51--> 00:09:22

the steel and the metal and the wood and the and the numbers and the policies and then yeah, maybe this sounds a bit weird, but it isn't. Because this is what it is how it works. What is the call to Allah? You need to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala if you're there, you don't remember Allah subhanaw taala What are you doing? Why are you even there? Why are you even standing there? If you don't, if you're not going to embrace it, indulge in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in abundance? You're not going to do that. Why are you there? You don't understand why you're there. You're doing it because you're because you stand for something bigger than yourself. Because it's

00:09:22--> 00:09:35

beyond you and the story of your own family and it's beyond the story of just human beings. This has something to do with the Almighty himself. Subhanallah with that, it's it's a connection is the relationship you have with Allah subhanho wa Taala that you are given the opportunity to

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

bring bring forth

00:09:40--> 00:09:54

the first the second verse after that when at the Kulu Kalinina Hala human dare him bottled on what he earned so don't be like like those who leave their homes. Bottle and Rhea. Rhea. It's just a way of reciting butter is out of arrogance.

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

Confidence in wealth that's what butter is. Butter is confidence in wealth ease

00:10:00--> 00:10:33

Even in slang, that's what it means. That's what it means in proper Arabic and posthoc. That's what it means slang. Well, I had Beltran someone who spends money he's not scared about wealth doesn't care. He's become arrogant because he has so much he doesn't care anymore doesn't have to think doesn't have to actually count and make sure that he has that he's you're putting the appropriate amount to buy something but Ron, he doesn't care about that is when you're arrogant with with the with the means of dunya that you have, the numbers are too big, too strong. The Army's too powerful. So But Ron, you don't think God doesn't mean anything to you, you feel that you have strength

00:10:33--> 00:10:46

outside of the realm of of the Almighty himself. subhanho wa taala. So you don't care. But you're trying to show off you want people to see. You want to either to invoke fear or you want people to be in awe of you or impressed by you.

00:10:47--> 00:10:54

So don't be like those who left their homes. Their hearts filled with a baton. Andrea Innes, don't be like that.

00:10:55--> 00:11:31

Allah subhanaw taala is taking time twice in three verses that talk about what they should do when they stand in combat with their enemy. Twain seal say you need to remember you need to indulge in my remembrance. And then make sure that in your heart you did not leave for the wrong reason. Like they did. They left their homes in Baton Rouge and Ria. Make sure you didn't leave your home with batata and REO or anything else. Make sure it was for the right reason make sure you left because you saw where Huck was. And you wanted to stand by it have to satisfy him Subhana wa Tada it Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala because if you left for another reason, it's not gonna work. Because they left for

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

no wrong reason. That's why but what if you left for the wrong reason? That does not gonna work either.

00:11:36--> 00:12:14

Yeah, same sorta Yeah, you will. Adina Manu is that Allah Yeah, you are looking for Karna where you can feel unconcerned, the Commonwealth of Allah Kumala, who will felt Lila Aleem, if you if you're pious of Allah, if you're mindful of Allah, then he will give you a moment of differentiation he'll give you for Klein. I'll give you a moment where hochland bottle become clear, but you have to have that mindfulness and piety inside of you. All throughout the Sunnah he talks about this speech whenever I leave Allah who feed him Hydra last my home if you knew that, if there subhanaw taala knows when he said when he's when you see here in the Quran, if he knew or when he knew. Meaning

00:12:14--> 00:12:27

when it was exposed. When you did something to expose that piece of knowledge he always knew Subhanallah what that is you exposing as you putting it, making it clear so that because no one's going to be okay being held accountable for something they didn't do this because Allah knows about it.

00:12:28--> 00:12:46

There's lack of justice there if that happens, so when he hears he uses the word love Alima Alima. He's talking about the fact that it was exposed. So now it was knowledge that even others could see what Oh, Allium, Allah houfy him. If it was clear that they had any intention of higher than they would have, they would have found their way to him. subhanho wa taala.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

He tells them he tells the believers regarding the prisoners of war, talking to the prisoners of war and yeah, let me Allah who will become Hira, yo decompiler Mima, okay. domine commerial,

00:12:57--> 00:13:21

Allah Subhana Allah sees that there was quite inside of you, he will, he will give you higher again, he'll give you back that was just taken away from you. He will be talking to the prisoners of war, those who fought the Muslims. May they're behind on your heart and show hate in your heart and I'll give you something it will be it'll get better again. It'll get better again, just show something nice to be there has to be on the inside. If it's not all of Sortland file talks about this little piece inside.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

What's happening inside.

00:13:26--> 00:14:02

That's why the beginning of the surah Bakula were ously who that urbini come the first one. The first one we talked we talked about this eight weeks ago. Yes, anyone can file in file oil and thoroughly Allah what was soon but the Kula Wellsley who that obey Unicam you have to fix what's on the inside. Because if it was on the inside isn't isn't functional. And there's really no point of us having conversations about anything else. We can have them and we can try but it's not going to go anywhere. Because Allah Subhan Allah Allah, Allah Allah is a Prophet alayhi salatu was said in Allah Allah Jambo it also was a Cambodia Sadiq Khan doesn't look at your pictures and your your

00:14:02--> 00:14:18

facial expressions and your clothing and your bodies well that can young little enough glooby Kumar Malik, he looks at your hearts and then he looks at with your hearts will drive you to do in terms of behaviors. We're seeing things from one angle, Allah subhanaw taala is looking at a completely different one.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

And he's judging us by it. And unless we're aware of that, then we're

00:14:25--> 00:14:33

we can't strategize. We can't we're strategizing incorrectly because Allah subhanaw taala is looking to see what do you have on the inside? What is your Nia like?

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

What is your well American same sort of Omar can Allah Who Li You are the by whom when Taffy him? Well makine Allah whom was diba whom, for whom you still feel alone? Allah so I don't never punish people as long as you want Mohammed you are amongst them. So Allah Allah CIBJO Selim does say, issue of his status. Oh my god. Alohomora theme Allah would never punish people whom you still feel alone as long as they continue to seek to seek forgiveness and repent as long as they continue to perform

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

sentence is always a way back. Because it's about that relationship that you have with him subhanaw taala. And if you're doing something and there's no evidence of a relationship, there's no evidence of a genuine, sincere connection. If there's no evidence in it, then there's no reason for it to be more successful than anything else. There's no reason for it to be more successful. There's really no point of having this having the conversation to begin with. Because that piece has to be there. There has to be with Akula cathedra. There has to be why did why did they followed you? Why'd you leave? What Why did you go? Why are you doing this is a battleground idea. Or there's some other

00:15:33--> 00:15:46

reason, you have to ask yourself that question. Why do you think the majority of scholars of Hadith and fiqh and other disciplines within Islam when they when they wrote a book, they started the book by Rene narrating the Hadith, of hubbub in Nanaimo luminette.

00:15:47--> 00:16:14

Wisdom at so many times that people don't take it for granted, don't even think about it. He really thought about this, this concept, zoom out a moment and think about it as a foreigner about this one narration that we keep on hearing at the beginning of almost every main collection or major collection we have within Islam, where it keeps on telling us how to heal, it's like, it's like something that the scholars picked up as everyone needs to think about this a lot. The deeds only matter based on whatever intentions drove drove them. You thought about that?

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

I don't think we have honestly, I honestly

00:16:19--> 00:16:50

anyone who's thought about this hadith that has not come to a moment of complete desperation and extreme fear, then do you haven't thought about it yet? Like in order for this, I the only way you can tell I know if someone thought about it is that they're actually afraid. If they're in distress, and they come and say I don't know what to do anymore. That has to be their reaction upfront. And then I will explain what the next steps are. But if that's not the reaction, then you haven't read the Hadith you understand is that your deeds only matter based on whatever initially motivated you to do them. Think about that.

00:16:52--> 00:17:32

That's that's one of the laws of success within this sutra. What are the logs that you have to have that connection, your knee and your fall and your repentance and your connection has to be there? If it's not there, you got to be a Muslim, and maybe a sort of life and limb file Minister Allah Allah has to Allah a shahada to be so token by Lago hula, who meant as either shahada you were in Mata either fellowship, there's a collection of a Muslim, someone who asked Allah subhanaw taala for the for the reward of being a martyr mean someone who gave their life for His sake Subhana wa, tada. Allah will give them the reward and the ranks of March tourism, even if they die on their beds, even

00:17:32--> 00:18:06

if they're lying on their beds, and they pass away peacefully, because it's really not about just what it's about what was what was the knee it was the intention. How did you live your life? What were you hoping to achieve with it? What was the level of genuineness and sincerity in what you wanted to achieve? This is what he's looking at subpoena without this is not to make you feel like your deeds aren't important. It's just a reminder that a part of this story is that piece, that piece cannot be ignored, neglected, overruled, or moved away from and just focusing on the no we have to go back to that. We have to go back to what to why we're doing what we're doing, and who

00:18:06--> 00:18:20

we're doing it for and what relationship we have with him. subhanho wa Taala in order for there to be hope of the outcome being anything positive of who Yokohama was totally to Allah he will overcome the struggles you're able to get to Laconia 1000 must have very little.

Mandela de Mesilla, haga toma and Talia Collison who will be to speak, he was decree with his stuff very well Hamdulillah he subhanho wa taala.

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

These this concept

00:21:34--> 00:22:19

is quite foreign until you run into a calamity yourself and you see how fragile you are and how weak and how scared you can become very, very quickly and how how quickly everything that you you once worked for our head or thought was was important or your treasured can be taken away really quickly. And it refocuses the mind to understand what's worthy and what isn't, what actually is valuable and what is not and, and you start figuring out that value doesn't really exist in things. It doesn't exist, and even in longetivity are, what exists in is, is the basic concept of why we're here. And what we're here to do, and that we're walking a path within our lives that we can feel at the end.

00:22:19--> 00:22:52

At any point if we're taking if we if we cease to exist at any point that the path we were walking on was a past week we are we are comfortable with we're happy that we're on it, that we can use it to argue our way through on the day of judgment and say that No, I lived a good life I did, I did my best I was doing things to the best of my ability. And if you don't have that, like if you're not, if you don't experience it or feel it, then there's something fundamentally wrong. Like if that's not there, meaning if you're going through life, and you don't feel that if you were to cease to exist at any given moment that you could go to Allah subhanaw taala and feel that you had a case

00:22:52--> 00:23:17

that you have a case you mean, you don't know if you're going to no one knows if you're going to win it, but at least you have a case worth arguing that I tried my best I was doing well. I made good decisions. Yeah, I made mistakes, but they have something for it. Then what is the point of all of this to begin with? Then why are we doing any of this? Why? Why do we have massage and why do we want them and why are we attending stuff this has to come we have to go back to the fundamental building bricks of what Islam is about, which is this this

00:23:19--> 00:23:26

is genuine and profound connection that we have with Allah subhanho wa Taala that is shouldn't be, that shouldn't be unbreakable.

00:23:27--> 00:23:52

They should never be overwritten. They should never cease to exist, we should never actually go into any endeavor in life without it being right in front of you. Without it being the number one thing that you turn to that this is going to strengthen what I have with Allah subhanaw Now this is something that will please Allah subhanho wa Taala that is what Dakhla is, and that is what is required in order for there to be any form any form of success or victory for an ummah that has to come back again.

00:23:54--> 00:23:59

What he talked about them later, subhanaw taala because if I was talking to them on your

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

journey right after the Battle of Bucha, like as it was happening, or just after it happened, well, a few years passed by he would comment and you say, well, Asada qumola, who be bedridden, went to the law, and did Allah subhana granted you victory in Madeira and use the word of Antrim Villa villa, you can you can translate it into your humiliated, or which is not really a good translation. I think the most scholars of Tafseer say that they were in a position of humbleness in their hearts.

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

There was not a little in terms of numbers, it was not a total in terms of abilities. It was a villa, it was humbleness or humility. That was not on the outside, it was on the inside. They went, they were there and they were very humble in their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. So they were deserving of being a being granted that victory. That's why at the end of Zurich, land fire, there are verses that scholars have always struggled to understand and people read them don't know what they mean. But when he when he talks about subhanaw taala the numbers if you know what the verses I'm talking to talking about it

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Yeah coming convention on asabi Runa yoga label me I tell you when you're coming from California believe me.

00:25:05--> 00:25:41

Femina Latina Kaffir Obeah Namco. Mala Cahoon talks about that at the beginning, it was the ratio was one to 10 that the Muslim will stand in battle one to 10, the ratio was fine. And then diverse after Anahata sallahu uncom. Now, it has been brought down a bit, it's not going to be that difficult. We are going to grant you some ease. Why Lima and pecan Botha, you've exposed that there is some weakness in you that scholars have talked about this little piece of the verse because the ratio went from one to 10 to one to two, coming from me, I don't Sabella don't you I believe when we attain it when we come California available. And finally isn't Allah Allah whom I was sobbing, he

00:25:41--> 00:26:09

says at the end, he gives us a little bit of a hint of what he's talking about. The ratio changes and he says, I'm gonna make it less for you one to 10 No one did one to two was more than enough. Because now it's exposed that there's a weakness in you, Alima Nephi Kumba, there's a weakness in scholars talking about what is this weakness? And they went back and forth for years. If you if you studied a different facility, and they say, What is the weakness, it's the inner weakness Allahumma Siberian is that lack of it's something on the inside.

00:26:11--> 00:26:48

to partner with Allah is pointing out something to the Sahaba that there's a weakness and bring it back. So they did. By the way, the rest of the battles that happened were never one to two. There are always more than that. Like, just to understand like the battles that happened after this, they weren't one to two. The only one that was one to two they lost they almost lost was her name. The only one they almost lost was one to two everything else is 12312412 20. And the numbers are almost I don't even know if I should share it. The numbers are ridiculous. The difference was not even something you can't even it's impossible 3000 standing or something nor close to a quarter million

00:26:48--> 00:26:49


00:26:50--> 00:27:02

So the numbers were never one to do. But he gave those verses as a warning to the sahab early on a bit of a weakness there. What was the weakness? Yes. Aluna caniell Unfurl. That was the weakness. He got a little bit too

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

materialistic, they're looking for a bounty and loot and go back a sliver without diving into gonna go fix it. No, no, don't do that. Don't be like the people who left about that I'm gonna Yeah, don't leave looking for wealth and looking for fame and looking for it. Don't do that. Go go for the right reason. Make sure you do it for the right reason.

00:27:20--> 00:27:51

And if that's what the people have better, we're being told, what do you think the people of us what do you think will be taught? What do you think of this is going to how would we be addressed about regarding this, if the if those who stood with him and Bidri you know, Sahar, but the ones who have everything for you, if they're being addressed by this and told watch out for this, watch out? It's not a joke, you shouldn't have done or shouldn't have said anything with the info. Now there is a dolphin the ratio was not proper anymore. What do you think he's going to tell us? How do you think this were seen in this in this whole picture? If that's what the sahaba? Who said by the prophet,

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

what are your thoughts that are being addressed? And what do you think you and I should be thinking about?

00:27:55--> 00:28:31

To me, this is one of the most realist piece of the laws of victory is this one, because this one, there's no excuse. Everything else I stood here and talked about, and we'll talk about over the next couple of weeks, there's there are obstacles to achieve. It requires a lot of organization and coordination and collaboration, there's a lot that needs to happen in order for certain things to be achieved within our community, because it's practical steps that we have to work together to get there. But this one here doesn't need anything. This just is you, this is me, know no one else is involved in this story at all this is whatever you have on the incident, how you're dealing with it.

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

And whether you take it seriously or not. And whether it's something that you're willing to change within yourself or not.

00:28:38--> 00:29:12

And if we can't start there, if you're going to start wherever it is that we have full control on that I don't understand why we how we would actually achieve any progress on the aspects that we don't have full control on where there is where we need his dough field support, we need this stuff everywhere, but where we need a lot of help in order to coordinate the work with other people. Did here's something simple for you. Here's something really simple, your relationship with Allah, your thicker and your knee and your sofa, and your connection with him. subhanho wa taala. That's a big piece of this of this story. It's a law. Without it, there's no success. There you go. If you're

00:29:12--> 00:29:23

finding everything I'm saying on the number over the last couple of weeks impossible to achieve no problem. Here's something very, very possible. Very easy. It's not easy. It's not easy, but it's within your control. You have full control over it.

00:29:25--> 00:29:38

Again, I want to talk I want to share with you the campaign that we have put forward within the center. Out of transparency, you put the cost of every program that you run here, including in that cost, the

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

place itself, the cost for the place itself in terms of rent and utilities and using the space we just incorporated into all of the different programs that we run and we put a monthly target. Now if you see the number and you'd like us a lot, go or ask around and other massage and you'll know that that's not actually not a lot at all. Other massage all across the world will will require me

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

Maybe twice that amount or more, just because they have more employees, we don't have a lot of employees here, most people who are working here are volunteering to do it for free for myself and moving forward. So this is just the operational cost to keep programs running, that allows us also the room to open up programs where we have long waiting lists for children during the Quran, or for other purposes as well. And to actually keep the place inshallah functional. As you can see people end up sitting outside in the hallways, which is not nice, sometimes people sitting outside in the cold, first actually find ways to

00:30:31--> 00:31:06

fix that. So this is what our cost is if you want to know where the money is going, because what we're doing using it for, including the cost of the space and keeping it up and going. So that's what you see there. Everything that we make, that is north of that number will go into the endowment fund the walk that we are hoping to start for the city, anything that comes in that is extra goes immediately into the wealth, we have no interest in this institution to bank money. Like we have no interest in taking money and putting it somewhere and just leaving it there as a cushion. But that's not how we that's not I don't like that philosophy for charities, I don't think any for people I can

00:31:06--> 00:31:38

understand if your family you want to live out of cash set aside for death. I don't think for charities that makes a lot of sense. I don't like that idea. So I don't want a lot of money sitting around and any bank for any reason. We use what we need. If we have a new project and we use it for a project if not, we put it and we allow it to grow and hopefully make something for the city in the future. It is a long term plan I understand some people think is insane. But I don't know what else to do. As a nation without thinking down these lines. What else are we trying to do as a community if we're not thinking down lines of starting ways for us to fund our own needs and our own projects

00:31:38--> 00:32:06

and programs and institutions then, and the other institutions that don't have spaces? I have a member I can stand here and tell you what I need. But what about the institutions that are advocating for us that don't have space, they can actually get on the member and say anything, they have to go around asking for money they shouldn't, especially if they're advocating for the reasons that we all agree on, it makes no sense that they are in need of money, whether it's the MRC or ECMO or NCCAM or other organizations that are smaller that are working with you with or working with the underprivileged people, there's a lot of them by the way, they should have enough which is why the

00:32:06--> 00:32:38

endowment fund is there. But if you can't really talk about I can't talk about funds and I talk I can't talk about growing a fund if the need of the center itself is not there. If we can't if we can't close the monthly needs for the programs that we're running, then there's not it's not it's not something that makes a lot of sense. So please again, look at this see what you're interested in putting something monthly that you're capable of carrying, there's an aspect of this is this how is it the bike this is the bike that you offered the profile that you saw twisted on baklava that you you put your wealth when when possible when capable to keep things running these programs are all

00:32:38--> 00:33:09

for Pete for the benefit of the community Old and young and different demographics that's all that's all it really is therefore there's really no other expenses that that we're using aside from what you see there. So he's not going to look at it this is what we're pitching they will continue to patients over the next bit with the goal inshallah of closing what our needs and then starting to put stuff into that put extra into the fund and grow that fund in sha Allah to Allah and hopefully I knew if we do that well then maybe our children will be you know, look back at us and throw a hammer or they don't see something nice that we that we did left something for them that's worthy of

00:33:09--> 00:33:49
