My wife and hamdulillah datamine Allahumma salli wa salam O Matic and I see you, you know, have you been a Muhammad in early You're so heavy his main or bad.

00:00:08 --> 00:00:13

So last time, we recited a number 44 from 30

00:00:14 --> 00:00:26

and today inshallah we'll continue from a number 45 It's page 434 24, from a job a regular at any version of the Quran or copy of the Quran.

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


00:00:32 --> 00:01:11

quick, just a quick reminder at the beginning of your Halacha, just to know that we're doing is the first door and a cluster of sewers, that begins to blossom, and we've sort of Zoomer and their focus is on the concept of submission of obedience of BA and Islam is to Islam to the command and the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. That is the concept, or that is the general theme of these group of students cluster of suitors to the exam is the first and it is by far the longest, and probably most important, because it talks about obeying Allah subhanaw taala, submitting to His will, when things are extremely difficult when it's but is especially hard to do. So are their students going to talk

00:01:11 --> 00:01:28

about it from a different perspective, you see that and you'll see the richness of the different perspectives that the other studio is going to offer. But this one is quite focused, it's talking about submitting, obeying Allah subhanaw taala, when it's really hard to do so. And it gives a different examples of what difficulty actually means.

00:01:29 --> 00:02:05

It begins with an introduction to that. And we went, we spent a number of Halaqaat just trying to explain the introduction. And then the first example was the actual battle of the Confederates, and it was obeying Allah subhanaw taala in a time of extreme fear. So when you're put between being a coward, or being brave, and obeying Allah subhanaw taala. And being brave, when you're extremely scared, was the first example in the Quran had a two and a half page or three or three page long psychological analysis of all the Muslims who were there at that time and how they behave. Second example, was more

00:02:07 --> 00:02:43

was more personal to the Prophet summarized. It talks about his wives and their choices, they had to accept the fact that they're going to live with him sallallahu alayhi wasallam with no financial growth potential with him, it saw the sin, which was something very difficult because I used to make a committed choice, he wasn't poor, he just made a choice not to live a luxurious lifestyle and for a good reason, that we now today understand much, much much better. And for them to accept that to to obey Allah subhanaw taala just stay with the Prophets until they sell them even when that is extremely uncomfortable for them with the choice that they ended up me ended up making. And then the

00:02:43 --> 00:03:17

chapter after that talked about issues of women within the deen issues of their, you know, dress code, behavior, their weight within Islam and, and all these things. As you listen to them. They're very uncomfortable things to talk about. They're awkward, they're just not. They're just not your piece of cake is not the thing that you will come hoping to listen to, so that you can grow spiritually, even though we do even though when we did learn about them, we did grow spiritually and educationally and Islamically. But they're just difficult and we there was a lesson to learn. And then after that, the you know, the central I have the pseudo Matt Kennedy moment when Mina either

00:03:17 --> 00:03:50

called Allah who are soo Emraan, a Akula, whom will heal to me, him me to him it has never been acceptable permissible for a believer whether male or female, if Allah subhanaw taala gives a decree or gives a command for them to have an option for them to say, well, it's optional, I can do it or not do it. If you're a true believer. That's not how things work the moment Allah subhanaw taala gives a command you, Annie, you accepted the chapter after that talked about another personal problem in his life slice and this time extremely awkward. This time the Quran is actually talking about probably the most difficult thing that he went through from a psychological perspective, like

00:03:50 --> 00:04:10

the distress that he suffered from Eliza Lim regarding the divorce of Zaidan Xena, but then his marriage exam was was almost unparalleled. Maybe just by with we can we can maybe just draw an analogy or compare it to when I should have they said something about Asia. Right. But that was a different type of because that's a different example. You can see how these examples differ. So they're not the same.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:37

What happened to die show was something that somebody had to show perseverance, wasn't about GPA, was able to beat it, I see how the things are different trials that we go through. That's why that story is not installed at the lab. The difference with it talks about something different. But here it was the prophets like Sam obey the command of Allah announcing his marriage to a designer, even though he knew the backlash from from Arabia was gonna be horrible, would be very difficult to deal with and had a lot of how Jimmy saw the word number of times coming up to that.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:51

point after that. We're like a break from all these stories that are very personal very difficult in these awkward topics to talk about where there's a lot of discomfort where Allah subhanaw taala called upon the moments she was talking about last time.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

Allah the Quran cathedra remember Allah subhanaw taala much remembrance or many times

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

for long periods, or in vast amounts, however you want to understand it was a beautiful book. I'll see you then exalting Subhana wa Tada in the morning in the evening. And if you're wondering why that came specifically there, well, that's the best faith place for that for these ayat, to exist, the best place in the Quran by for instance, the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. And the knowledge of Allah to put it right there, right between all these stories that talk about such difficulty in obeying His command is sometimes very hard,

00:05:32 --> 00:06:09

or uncomfortable, or it causes you distrust or distress or you don't understand that you don't like it. Or maybe deep down inside for some reason, don't agree with it. Regardless of the reason of why I had to vicar come, why, because that is how you get over your distress. If you if you struggle with any command of Allah subhanaw taala you get over it by continuously remembering him within your day, meaning every time you make a choice, every time you you're dealing with a decision. You remember Allah subhanaw taala you remember his command, you ask yourself whether this is the right thing to do, whether there's Allah Subhanallah, something you would want or not, and you do the

00:06:09 --> 00:06:45

correct meaning you're continuously reminding your enough of Allah by doing the speed, or is still far, or the lead or how color or any any form of discipline that you know, the more you do it, the less distress you find, the less discomfort you'll find in following the commands of Allah subhana wa Tada if you're, if you find something that you struggle with the word of Allah subhanaw taala regarding that, or the command or the, or the ruling, the Hukum Shalini that we have, how Allah Subhan Allah views if you find that hard, anything at all, you find something hard, then just increase the amount of remembrance of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And you will see how that will change.

00:06:46 --> 00:07:18

I'm not saying like magic, I'm saying it is. Just go ahead. Just remember Allah subhanho wa Taala more on a daily basis before your decisions before your your choices. It's very important that we see both, we have a proper balance for that. vicar is a very specific command is very important. But it's used in two different ways. There is the test suite where you're taking in your you're repeating that estimate, which is a very important part. But then there's remembering Allah subhanaw taala as you go through your day,

00:07:19 --> 00:07:49

as you're making decisions, do you remember him? Or is he out of that equation, and he exists somewhere else. Meaning it's a boxed matter. You have its limitations. You sit here you remember ALLAH, and then you leave that and you walk out of the masjid and now is he's not a part of this equation anymore. And you live your life, Allah subhanaw taala is isolated from that, then you come back and now he's no, remembering the loss of power or the concept of is that works everywhere. It's something to do inside, more specifically more profoundly

00:07:51 --> 00:08:07

in a more isolated and exclusive manner based on relationships, who should tell you make thicker, do to speed and then within your life as you go through your life, you remember Allah subhanaw taala every time you do something, and if you can do that, then in sha Allah you will achieve

00:08:09 --> 00:08:37

the goal which is you won't have distress anymore towards any of his commands. That's what I talked about in detail. Actually last time only but basically a few is three or four maybe a couple of lines. And then after that is the is the reasoning who will never use Ali Ali from the reason that you remember Allah subhanaw taala because as you do every time you do, he sends his blessings and his Lama and His love and His mercy and facilitation is ease upon you. And his melodica do the same. And he removes you from a state of darkness to a state of enlightenment.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:42

Because he has always been Rahim Subhanallah wits and merciful with the movements with those who believe.

00:08:43 --> 00:08:49

Hey yet to him yo Miguel Kona who said the day that you meet him Subhana wa Tada it will be peace. The word will be peace.

00:08:50 --> 00:09:09

Why? Because what's the opposite of distress deep inside it's peace. If you're distressed on something about something you're anxious about if it's bothering you deep inside the opposite what you're hoping is for that relief piece I get to home your my opponent who said you'll be granted peace the day you meet him I did a home a young cream and they were prepared for them. It's a very unique,

00:09:10 --> 00:09:51

unique and beautiful reward. Okay, so that was up to number 44 We will continue in sha Allah from IE number 45 Where what I tried to explain last time but you didn't get this far is that after two stories where his personal life so Allah hottie was telling was put on display for a few moments. Meaning we got to hear about how he always thought from his wives were Yeah, I need not too happy with with certain aspects of his financial choices where he was in distress. That's all I said, regarding a decision or a choice. He had to make some aloha to Salem. You may what may come to your mind for a moment meaning what you may think of just for a split second that maybe Yanni maybe

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

something like syndrome is yeah, he's making mistakes. Meaning you may question for a moment if your email isn't clear, or if you don't have a proper understanding of who he is only a subset

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

And you may question his status for a moment. So immediately the idea that was there to fix it, just so that we're clear on things of who he is sort of lives and then what status he what he was he carries Alia South Sudan within this world and is positioned there because there are still two more stories about his personal life some less than them. And we're still going to talk about the issues of going into his home and eating his food, isn't it we're still going to enter his house it is not to say I'm still so there has to be that clarification and you'll find that a lot in the Quran mean wherever Allah subhanaw taala talks about a mistake or a lack of priority proper prioritizing or

00:10:35 --> 00:11:09

something or he had meaning the idea but he thought of all sorts of some of the same thought about something I suppose to them wasn't clear whether it was right or left he made a choice that Allah Allah told me that no, you should have done the other one. There's always an idea to talk about the status to myself just in case we ever forget. Or we missed a year in the queue or we think that maybe I only saw two ceramic floor or is at fault and he isn't sort of lesser than he ever was. Okay, so we will start in Charlotte with a number 45 He's a very beautiful I hope everyone has read them before and memorize them before and show the meaning will be very

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

relevant. It will be laying him in a shame while on your roadie.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:21


00:11:22 --> 00:11:23


00:11:29 --> 00:11:32

Yohan be you in

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

cash here

00:11:44 --> 00:12:18

so we have to pay attention to the mood so every time there's a method so just look at it for a moment I can queue it for you as I go along when I'm reading it you will see that there's a med med looks like a cowboy hats like it's on top of an alley for a while where Yeah, whenever you see it there most mostly there for counts. So you can do four counts on your knees that's what they are teachers are scholars told me to do when I was good I still do it sometimes when I feel I'm off cue or I'm my tone is might be I'm not not following the beats properly you can always do that each one is four counts unless I tell you otherwise and I will make about six I'll tell you a six but besides

00:12:18 --> 00:12:30

that it's usually always always for been trying to look for the one like and maybe you in an interest to counts to count so try to try to get him to keep up with that so we will continue in

00:12:33 --> 00:12:37

Kashia hidden by she wrong one or the

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


00:12:48 --> 00:12:52

Ilan hola Hebei is nee he was urogen

00:13:00 --> 00:13:03

where the shooting meaning a B and

00:13:05 --> 00:13:06

mean Allah

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

Allah he's laying cabbie.

00:13:27 --> 00:13:29

Feeding Munna Fifi now

00:13:39 --> 00:13:40

whatever can

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

work as we learn he wacky

00:13:51 --> 00:14:28

okay yeah you have to be you know, the Prophet SAW Selim is called upon again he was ever called upon some Allah Allah you it was sent him in the Quran with his name, unlike all the other prophets. Yeah, Adam we knew Ibrahim we isa Musa, all called by their names Ali Hemofarm through a cinema Jemaine except him. So Allah, Allah, Allah Salam, it was always Yeah, Johanna Rasul. Yeah, you want to be you? Yeah, you when was the middle? Yeah, you only called with a you have before and when you say the word you have. And Linguistically that means you are showing a certain level of respect. When you say you have you for something for the Arabs, when you hear Yeah, you huh. And then that

00:14:28 --> 00:14:36

means someone's trying to respect you. So if you're walking and someone doesn't know you, there's two ways for him to call upon you, or there's many ways but these are two examples. You can say yeah, why don't you

00:14:37 --> 00:14:57

and that way you don't know whether this was coming next is is going to be appropriate or not. So yeah, you have a module. Now you know, the person behind you is looking to speak to you in a respectful way. So these little changes in the Arabic language means something. So yeah, you are using that before meaning he is looking to speak to him civilize them with without most respect. Yes.

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

Exactly. But yeah, you

00:15:00 --> 00:15:36

You will come to know your code. Yeah, you will come if you don't, yeah, you already know who to kitab. So what that actually means in the Quran is at a certain level of respect that they're being addressed with me they're being acknowledged as a group. What it means is, they're being acknowledged as a group that they have an entity they are someone, right? I mean, the point of it is not just to trash everything that that they are, but there's a respect to that. Yes, maybe you don't believe in what we believe in. So you have an entity? But yeah, you have your own mean, gives them the description. mean, this is not a curse word. I'm not calling you a name. Are you? Okay? If you

00:15:36 --> 00:16:07

don't, I'm saying that this is the description of your group. And he does. So that's actually a very valid point. And it's important in the Quran, that yes, we don't agree with them. We don't like them. We don't think what they're doing is right. But we still respect that they are an entity that they're a group and this is not a curse word. Neither word can fit. Or sometimes we use it as a curse word. If you tell you right, so in the Quran, no is not we're not using Allah, Allah is not using it to curse someone else is yeah, you would have been a couple of other description, you are someone who just believed in this. So you're a calf, you're in this, just like Janya, someone who's

00:16:07 --> 00:16:37

who's not a Muslim, would call me a governor, because I don't believe what he believes in. So it's not he's not cursing me. It's just a description of what I am towards his beliefs. And that's a description of what he is toward my set of beliefs. So the Koran is very, that's a very, it's a very accurate thing. And I've done something like that before. But since you brought that up, that that's something in the Quran that you need to pay attention to that you have, even when they're talking to those who are the only groups that we not don't necessarily agree with. We don't agree with him. That's clear. And actually there is saying specifically that you're not supposed to agree with them.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:46

But there's still a group, it's acknowledged as people with choices and the highest end is this description, not a curse. So yeah, you have to be you

00:16:48 --> 00:16:49

owe profit.

00:16:50 --> 00:17:28

So the likes of Samsung by somebody in Elson neck, indeed we have sent you. And now we have 12345, we have five descriptions of him. So the nice thing about this character and of his of his job. And these are very beautiful descriptions, today, we may take a bit longer is explaining these because of their beauty. Again, when the mid in the midst of students that are so that are very, very heavy in content, she will have a lot of topics that are difficult to speak of. So it's probably ranking up there with the first two or three, there's always going to be within the middle of them that are just beautiful. They're just breathtaking. Why? Because it's just so that you don't get we don't get

00:17:28 --> 00:18:02

too caught up with the technicalities and the mechanics of things because there's one tiny segment or one chapter of rulings or one chapter of of difficult topics after the other may may harden your hearts, you may you come to a field called you may very well feel that this is just one ruling after the other it's just do do don't don't this is right, this is wrong. You have to act like this. You kind of like that you may lose that connection, because it has to be out of pure beauty somewhere in the middle. That's why someone was beautiful. I actually have don't exist in mucky sorrows, which our students are focused on the spirituality of the dean of the character building on last year

00:18:02 --> 00:18:20

talking about your milk to tell me the most beautiful ad you have in the Quran are in a meadow nice dura. And as you were going to talking about just rulings, ruling rulings, and then you have the most beautiful ayat in the Quran at the end. So tonight is some of the most beautiful verses ever. The story of Isa couldn't be more beautiful at the end of the remainder, the end of sudo Makara Mr. Vallee, I'm Ron

00:18:21 --> 00:18:58

visability. And as you go along, you find out that I just Yeah, and he's amazing people like listening to time and time again. The reason being is that in many stores, there's so many ruling there's so many harsh commands and deny and denials from Allah subhanaw taala. And sometimes, you can misunderstand all that made me feel a bit uneasy, surrounded by all these rulings. So there has to be that aspect of love and spirituality. Put in the middle. So here's some of the nicest yet yeah, you want to be you of course, as at the end as well, something just as just as heavy, if not even heavier. In Allison, Kesha Heda first of all, we have sent you in DVF sent you Shahida

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


00:19:01 --> 00:19:04

so let's share he doesn't mean and the word Shahid

00:19:05 --> 00:19:07

and the plural Shahada.

00:19:08 --> 00:19:13

We often use them as marcher or she is someone who died for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala gave his life

00:19:14 --> 00:19:52

to use the word witness. Right? And then when he asked what is witness mean, then you lie the answer the traditional answer that is not fully wrong but not fully right either loses most of the beauty of the word is that your milk gamma will be a witness that you didn't do. But when you think about it, how have you witnessed the last LM if he didn't really wasn't here with us? How can you be a witness towards my deeds or yours or the deeds of others if he wasn't there to actually witness them? So lesson learned personally, and it's kind of a stretch to think that he is watching each and every one of us from Allah Islam at every moment. That is the act of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:52 --> 00:20:00

himself, but he is a witness. I saw this I'm just not that way. Use a witness to lie seldom very much he is but differently, a different type.

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

But witness and this understanding what Kinetica jhana method was upon. He took Unum shahada, Allah Nasi, we're gonna rasuluh Alikum Shahida. So the concept of Shahidan Shahina shahada is in the Quran many, many times. And I'm gonna explain to you the basic idea that and from that basic idea, the other understandings that we have exists so the concept of being a witness to life, and the concept of a martyr being a martyr in the word Shaheed comes from one basic idea that we I think we've missed in a lot of cases. How is he actually shahid? So I sent him appliance I always use Shaheed on his audio, so it was him

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

by being able to practice them in hedge by being able to follow the command. That is always a witness. What do I mean? You see Allah subhanaw taala sent this. There's a lot of rules here in terms of what you're supposed to do what you're not supposed to do. Now, do they work?

00:20:52 --> 00:21:11

Do they work? How do you know they're they work? How do you putting them all together actually works? Because that's, that's our argument. That's what I say, we get on the moon, but we start telling people, you need to behave like this and act like this and stop doing that and do this more of this. And then things will thrive and get better. How do I know that? Based on what evidence do I have that? That is the truth?

00:21:12 --> 00:21:46

His his life sort of nicer than he used to witness? See? You can do it? He did it? Yeah, Rob, I can't do this. You told me he knows. And I said, Alright, fine. He said to me, no, come on. Alright, fine. You told me No. Fine. No, we have a Euro Bay. And you know, what can I do? This doesn't work is impossible. Like, I can't do it yet. It's impossible to hit me did it? Look at him? He did it. Somebody said them? worse conditions than you. But no, no, he didn't have what I had didn't have the peer pressure. He wasn't as poor as I was. He wasn't oh, let's take a look. Oh, look at that.

00:21:47 --> 00:22:25

Oh, look at this all the all the messed up circumstances, just like you actually worse than you. Let's take a look at his. He's the witness to the license. Now. He is a witness of most of them in that. And so are we, in the same sense, meaning for Allah subhanaw taala, to judge people on Earth today. And for there to be genuine, in order to be reward. And we have to prove that this works. If we can't prove this works, then judgment tool be flipped. He can judge those who didn't do it. Because they had no example of it actually happening. They have no they have no evidence that it would work. How do they know this works?

00:22:27 --> 00:22:51

Just don't take our word for it. Would you take our word for it? If you're an outsider looking in, you would take our word for this being for this being the word of Allah subhanaw taala that say you're not interested, you're not someone who's interested in the actual details of the you're going to base your judgment on any results and consequences. Want to base your judgment on? Let's see, let me see. You say it works. You guys are practicing it true. You guys are following it. Let us see.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:30

You don't see much better than us in anything. I can't really see how this is better. And if you're saying the problem with this is, I think the danger behind it. We are shahada and that sense with the coulomb shahada, Allah nurse, we are witnesses in that sense in front of Allah subhana wa, that meaning he sent this book, there has to be those who practice it to prove that it works so that he can tell others that it worked. He said, Well, maybe we shouldn't do it so that no one gets judged. Negatively. Yeah. But we will see that's the whole problem that those who are given the chance to actually practice it and did not. Because then he'll tell us, well, you should have made it work.

00:23:30 --> 00:24:05

You're up but we tried and didn't work and they don't show us the profits. I'm like, no, no. And is that why he's a *? See, it works for him. It worked for the ones with him. Why did you do it? Like he did it? It works. It works. You just didn't make it work. It was your problem. And we're returned to him some Allah Hi Salam and all the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala, who came before him that this works. And that's the mean of Shahid in that and from that, we use the word witness. So he was an example showerhead. If you if you study Arabic language, and they want to give you and you want to give you an example of how this grammatical status dance works, he'll use it if you're

00:24:05 --> 00:24:38

reading a book, we're sure who to whom in a share and the showerhead from from poetry was Shaheed milk, Ron and the showerhead from the Quran. What does he mean the example he needs the example the word shad means example. First, it from that meaning that basic meaning of an example, we derived from it, that he's a witness, civilize them. And that is true. And I don't say that's wrong. I'm not I'm not denying that part. But it comes from a basic concept from a root understanding that he is the examples of the life and limb that this works. And where is it most to be the example that this works? And if we're not, then we're not doing the job, meaning if we are not the example that the

00:24:38 --> 00:24:51

way of Allah subhanaw taala is superior in terms of its of its value system, in terms of his ethics and morals, and then in terms of the results of what happens to a community when it follows the way of Allah subhanaw taala that we have nothing to show.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:53

No one wants to read books

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

anymore at least. No one's interested in your AI any theology. No one wants to

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

hear that? When was the last time you open the door for a Mormon or Jehovah's Witness?

00:25:07 --> 00:25:15

You do what you you immediately regret your decision. You don't want to hear the argument. Show me. Show me how you're better.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:44

No, but the words better yeah, I understand that show me how you're better because of it. I'm not okay then go away, go become better come back, talk to me later inshallah when you are. Because if you're the one who understands the language was born and raised in it, and you're not functioning properly, then why would I even want to become a part of this? This group is not to is not working? Why? And you're saying that this is the reason yeah, this is the best thing ever, and that this is pure luck right inside. Well, why does it seem to work for you? Why do you think it's going to work for me if it didn't even work for you?

00:25:45 --> 00:25:59

And you're saying this is a crippling argument. It's a crippling argument. And that's why he has shed some light on them. Here's an example that it works. See, see, look at him. So I sell them productive, happy, ethical, and impeccable. So I sell them morally

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

and close to Allah subhana which island in all the all the all the concept of the life of Khalifa right there in his life. So listen, and clearly. So then when it's Archer, we have to do the same. And if we fail, he'll just show us okay, look at them. They did it. And they did it. There's a lot of examples. He did it, she did it. It works and why couldn't you do it? What's your excuse? And they lose that argument immediately.

00:26:25 --> 00:27:03

And from that we took the marcher. Shaheed is called a shaheed. Why? Because he's an example of someone who gave it all what's more valuable than life itself? Nothing. Nothing's more valuable in life itself. Even if they tell you something that nothing is. It's all fun and games until the neck goes flying. As long as the neck is on the head, and you can Yeah, it's alright. The moment you're telling me that I lose my life things is a different conversation from that moment forward. As long as I'm going to live, you're not gonna take my life. We can talk about anything really. Everything is Yaniv replaceable. It's up life. You can replace life. You can survive without limbs, you can

00:27:03 --> 00:27:32

survive without it so many other things. You may not be happy that you can survive. But what about life? Life is irreplaceable you can replace it. So he gives his life for the sake of Allah. That's such that's an example. Sure, he doesn't call the Shaheed that's why he was called the show. He's not the other way around. The reason we use Shahid for him is because he has an ultimate example amongst us as people with someone who's brave enough and strong enough to actually give his life for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala literally not figuratively. And

00:27:35 --> 00:27:47

we're supposed to live for the sake of Allah. Right? And if forced to die for the sake of Allah, What's better is to live for the sake of Allah. Definitely. But some will die for the sake of a lot. That takes a lot. That's why it's called the shaheed. So yeah, you have to be you. Yes.

00:27:49 --> 00:27:54

You might be sensitive, or like they go overseas, and they're like overdoing on that for

00:27:57 --> 00:28:14

sure. So there's two there's two things for an action to be accepted. Right? There's the intention and the validity of the act itself Correct. Stupid and good intentions don't excuse stupid actions. Good intentions don't excuse stupid actions. Someone is ill.

00:28:15 --> 00:28:34

And they have to have a bad cut on their arm. But there's a person in their family who loves them so much. They're so kind in their heart is of gold, and they decide to try a homemade remedy. Right and they put it on and this person it gets an infection and dies. So what do we say well, he even Well,

00:28:36 --> 00:29:01

no, it does. I don't care if he meant well or not. He should be prosecuted for this you have to go to jail for that. Good intentions don't excuse Stupid, stupid actions. Period. It's as simple as that. Just like a good action. If it has a bad intention you don't get either it's two you need two things. So you want to go and offer your that's a good intention. But is that is this the right course of action? Do you know exactly what you're doing? Again? Ignorance is not an excuse either. So

00:29:04 --> 00:29:36

sure, but I said the same thing if you remember, like I explained that maybe you weren't there. You need you need for the acceptance of an action you need two things you need the New Year is the validity. Okay? Let me make this simpler. I have the intention of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. So tonight because I love him so much, I'm gonna pray Aisha five records inshallah for you five to five because we love him a bit more tonight anyway, and I'm doing it for the sake of Allah know your thoughts about the law, even though you have the best intention. So you need two things you need the proper intention, and the proper action now what's easy for us is to get the action right. It's

00:29:36 --> 00:30:00

actually easier than the intention itself. I know it sounds weird, but it's actually easier to learn the mechanics to learn the details of logistics of how to do something like explain to you how to wash your hands, understand and do the movements How do you get the intention perfected that's hard. That takes a lot lifetime that you spend all your life trying to perfect your intention, take everything out of it. But the other way around doesn't help either. Meaning a lot of people have great intentions were the OMA and they do really stupid things.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:26

Things is not excused. I'm sorry, just not excused for anyone. We're gonna do something we have to watch out for both. Do we have the right intention? And he's what we're doing Correct? Is it with? Is it a parallel and based on the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam? Is this what they would have would have wanted is based on their teachings or is it just the only something I was told and then the intention is doesn't doesn't make doesn't make a difference? Right? Go ahead. Yeah

00:30:28 --> 00:30:29

that's what I'm saying like

00:30:33 --> 00:31:05

but it's like, so whenever that whenever the opportunity is given, which probably not right now in almost any situation, or maybe few situations or certain places. Yeah, but that's very rare. See, the thing is, living for Allah Subhan is much more valuable than dying for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala when and when the shahada is something that is going to happen? Sure, there are different types people who die of diseases in car accidents people die difficult deaths, these are showdown of Alaska at least, but actually to go fight me in combat for the sake of London dying for this. Oh, that's very different. There's a lot of different I mean, there's many many rules and

00:31:05 --> 00:31:11

conditions that apply to someone's going to do that anyway. So before you go and die for this, but does anyone go and fight with the intention of dying?

00:31:12 --> 00:31:46

No, definitely never supposed to go do that anyway. Like you don't go even if it's combat no one goes into a willing hoping today, even some of the durations that we have in the Sierra from Fabo say it's Yanni there's weakness to the actual literal understanding of that. You're not the prophets. I said Nikola Tesla, now Tessa Lulu Anika, we come Don't ask Allah to ever meet your enemy wants him Allah had i here and ask Allah subhanaw taala for arginine for there to be no war at all. You're not You're not hoping today. But if we have to, then we will. And that's the idea. So for someone actually to leave when I want to go die for the sake of Allah, you've probably already

00:31:46 --> 00:32:02

that's something wrong in the way he's looking at things. You're not supposed to be willing and wishing to go die when you're wishing to live for the sake of Allah. But if you need to bear arms and you will, and that is so rare in today's only cases that that I can't even give you an example that would be worthy of discussion.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:29

The first thing he was described with Salah is element the NDIS showerhead is an example of a software setup of how of how this way of life works, or brings you what you're looking for, allows you to achieve what you want to achieve. It brings you the happiness and the Jonnie the success of this life. It brings you the happiness and success of the hereafter. Here's our shot hits thriller Hollywood hilum so love him and fear him

00:32:30 --> 00:33:06

so love him sort of lifestyle and follow Him and fear him as well because you're welcome if we don't make this work he's he's a standard that we're held to we're healthy standard civilized and and we're looking at this as your example were you able to live like Him? Why not? What was harder for you that wasn't hard for him? What is it he had that you did not why what was right there in front of you the same thing I told him I made sure it arrived at your at your doorstep you could pick it up you could read it his life every personal aspect of it I told you about did he not just tell us about someone who was no one wants their their Secrets Exposed? The prophets lie Selim is life

00:33:06 --> 00:33:42

secrets we're exposing the Quran recited to yomo Piana and things are even more specific in detail. The imaginal meaning told us about the mothers of believers came and told us about them one by one. Things that are very, very personal that you don't want people knowing about. None of us do. But I didn't start to tell him to go through it because he shattered his example he sought to slam for us. That's number one. Second, when we were sheelane. He is the bearer of good glad tidings or he brings good news. See before he is in the theater, he's always a machine. So listen them before he brings you the warning, he brings you that appeal, even though you may say well, isn't it more important to

00:33:42 --> 00:33:58

tell you and to warn you than to tell you the good news? Yes. When we're talking theologically, but we're talking about his lifestyle son, Elijah them and the roles he carried no, he was in Russia before he was in a theater. He was coming to tell people that I need to be at ease.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:38

There's great things waiting for you. There is a lot of happiness. There's a lot of bliss. There's a lot of fortune that is coming your way. Yeah, your Lord is Allah subhanaw taala that is the that is the biggest act of Beshara that's the best good news you'll ever have about abortion or the biggest guy the great news you'll have is that your Lord is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is Mandela who was him who was Kareem, who was a judge who was a law Pleven were dude Subhana wa Tada knowing that brings us to the heart. Allah subhanaw taala as the Most Merciful, the Most forgiving, he is the guy that the most generous, the unique Subhana wa Tada the loving the Most Beloved, when you know that

00:34:38 --> 00:34:59

that brings that brings love to your heart and ease, then inshallah something great is going to happen because that's your Lord. But he also isn't a zero sum allies, who also warn us and bring us a warning. So that's how we started this hour, by the way. So OLALIA started when you read, getting the sealer when he first went public with Islam and he was no longer selective. He wasn't just choosing people and speaking to them.

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

He started speaking publicly. He will say oh luda Ilaha illa Allah to flee Jose La ilaha IL Allah and you will be successful.

00:35:08 --> 00:35:27

In Allah test I do say Allah, Allah, Allah will be happy. So let's say this is how he began the Dawa. And then he went into the, the issues that are more difficult to speak of nephila tell us that Yeah. But the flip side of this is, is very ugly. When you think about a lot, why is it like that? Why couldn't have been?

00:35:29 --> 00:35:30

Any agenda if you do well, and

00:35:31 --> 00:35:47

just non existence if, if you didn't? And I think about that, and I'm wondering, and how motivated would anyone be to do anything good, if that was the equation, because at the end of the day, 90 whatever is happening after in the Hereafter I afterlife,

00:35:48 --> 00:36:09

is no way for you to physically put your hand on it and test it out. So that your, any scientifically 100% sure of it. It's a matter of iman belabor shahada, it's a matter of logic, it's a matter of you accepting something later to come that makes sense to you. It's email and you still have to you have to have that leap of faith, you have to have that belief.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:12

So if I told you that at the end, either you're going to gender or nowhere.

00:36:14 --> 00:36:15

But yeah, it's pretty good right now.

00:36:16 --> 00:36:32

I know about the hereafter. But what's the worst that could happen? I'm not here anymore, whatever. But Allah subhanaw taala made this choice extremely easy. Because when you look at the two outcomes, they couldn't be farther apart. It couldn't be more offices than they actually are. So it's either agenda or it's not.

00:36:34 --> 00:36:35

This is a no brainer.

00:36:36 --> 00:37:14

There's no reason for you to think about this. What are you thinking about? What options are you contemplating about? There's not choosing a green or red car. This is either Jana or now it's immediate choice obviously. Obviously gender of course, of course eternity in the in the Grace of Allah subhanaw taala punishment and yeah, it and suffering and pain, of course, that's not what I want, I kind of put up with Yanni, the smallest amount of it and dunya I'm working around the smallest amount of discomfort and dunya I don't want to be in any discomfort at all. We go out of our way, we will spend hours planning to make sure that there is no discomfort in the next maybe a

00:37:14 --> 00:37:31

couple of weeks. If we have a plan or going somewhere, try to you know, every detail you think about it will be comfortable will the seat. What about what about going to the bathroom? What about sleeping at night? Well, I have my own space, you're thinking about all the details. It's not about pain. It's just any form of discomfort. You don't want it. But then you're okay with Genom.

00:37:32 --> 00:38:09

Now, are you okay with Jonathan? How was your dinner for number one priority? How are we not planning things out so that there's no discomfort at all, then? Does it make sense? The less we're not 100% sure about what we're doing. Let there's a lack of of Eman which is which was which all comes back to that at the end. And you can argue as much as you want and talk about Dean forever comes back to one simple did he believe and equate the part of the equation that talks about resurrection and, and recording and recording of actions and consequences or you don't? There's really nothing else to this equation. If you do, then you're fine. You'll be able to walk to the end

00:38:09 --> 00:38:12

of the line and if you don't, then well. It's a waste of everyone's time.

00:38:13 --> 00:38:33

So Shahid is an example of Russia and the US the barrier bear carrying a carrier of glad tidings to less than one of the era is a Warner of punishment on a sought to asylum, whether you need Allah and He is someone who calls people to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is that that is the job description of all the MBO.

00:38:34 --> 00:39:12

How did he refer to a salaam all the prophets did their job was a die? Yeah, it Allah, they call people to the to the way of Allah Subhan Allah call people to Allah, in whatever form and to the love of Allah to the belief in Allah to wherever you want to talk, meaning it's left open in the Quran here. linguistically, Dyani Allah is no literal phrase. How do you call someone to someone? You call someone to answer someone to speak to someone to follow someone to be similar to someone to love someone to hate someone? That's what you do. Danilo, what does he mean? Literally doesn't work. So it's an estimated meaning. You call Allah the Prophet alone calls people to the way of Allah to

00:39:12 --> 00:39:20

the teaching of alter the message of a lot of the love of Allah subhanaw taala How did he do it? So let's have them one more time just to bring them back to the same to the same concept. Just one more time.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:30

Is he the type of Dawa, that I'm doing right now? Is maybe one or 2% of Dawa, which is the Dawa of talking? It's not that

00:39:31 --> 00:39:45

it's not as important as we think it is? really isn't? Even though you focus on lessons and drusen so it's really not that important. And it's not the most Guinee it's not the the main part of how Dawa is done.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

It is role modeling. What actually that what is that what is role modeling? If you don't believe me, have kids one day or if you have kids, you know what I'm talking about? You're gonna sit your child down

00:40:00 --> 00:40:15

and speak to them for 15 hours about something, they will maybe absorb 1% of what you just said. That is if they don't completely shut you off and absorb the opposite just to spite you later, but if you role model for them, if you show them how things are done.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:47

So let's say you're anti gay, you want your child not to be a violent kid, or you want them to be respectful, right? There are two ways to do this. There is you to tell them sit down, explain to them the importance of respect, you can prepare my next one, you can follow me and I can I can prepare for you all the it was taped to them yet and tell them Yanni that was translation, and then you could reach at them all the Hadith of the Prophet SAW, Selim said, and then you can go move on to the Sahaba and how they and then you can give them some examples of the type again, they can tell stories, stories about how this works, right? Charles is sitting there for an hour and a half, and

00:40:47 --> 00:41:04

he understands nothing of what you're talking about. I remember him at once, like a half, I think six months ago, to come to my seat. So he sat up front, and I spoke for an hour, and I were walking home with him. I said to him, so what did you learn today? And of course, I'm thinking to myself, because I talked about loyalty I talked about your only role modeling said, I don't know there was a man and a horse. And

00:41:07 --> 00:41:09

I remember like men and horses, I don't know what else.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:47

And then there's another way that you actually showing him, showing him how you treat your wife, showing them how you're not violent and how you're respectful how you listen. And then even if one day, they have a violent urge to always, always always recline, they'll always go back to whatever it is that the observed in their lives time and time again. And we know that the opposite exists. Because if all you have to do is just talk to someone who's talking to a psychologist about this, they'll give you the harsh truth about it all. Someone who grows up in an abusive family is an 85% more likely to be abusive in their in their marriage, no matter how much they believe that violence

00:41:47 --> 00:41:58

is horrible. It's a very sad, it's a very, very sad thing, that they could be totally convinced that violence is a bad thing. And abuse is completely unacceptable, but they're 85% more likely to do it. The studies it

00:41:59 --> 00:42:23

talks about this time and time again. Why because it's role modeling that counts. It's what you see. Now what you hear I sit here I talk and talk and talk maybe 50% is picked up and the effect of it is the irony is temporary kind of false behavior makes a difference. That's why still Allah hottie some kind of believe a 60 Allah He sought wisdom. He was silent for long periods of time. baleen al Kalam he spoke very little

00:42:24 --> 00:42:31

yeah the kalam will be July me and kill him when he spoke he spoke and he met live with lots of meaning the small numbers of words

00:42:32 --> 00:42:34

are meant to be lighter Mr. Kim

00:42:35 --> 00:43:11

some writing a few words. Why because the lesson Linda is not interested in talking unlike many of us here. There's a million people like me but better than me. Right? So it's the fear in English and a million guys with the same the same you know, attitude acting like they know what I'm talking about. But then Okay, bring someone who can actually only practice this stuff. Bring someone actually role models it for people in terms of their whole look in their solution, their hull in the way that they are and the way that they behave and the way that I need some aloha to sell them there was something more than what he said. You just observed him, so let's eliminate them first.

00:43:12 --> 00:43:49

Coulibaly called Amara who but he had an herb who He who sees him immediately has he before him, he is intimidated by this by this man, woman call up a homebody for 10 Hotbot. And he who is who starts to live with him more closely loves him salicylate, I have to spend more time with him and then you fall in love with this man. You love them. Why? Because of just how he is of his of his demeanor of his report of his of his character of his Genuity How do you know there was a genuine person that you could feel the genuineness we can pick up on these little things. By the way, as human beings we're very sensitive socially. You can pick up hypocrisy and genuinely quite quickly and the idea is

00:43:49 --> 00:43:49


00:43:50 --> 00:44:24

Our instincts will tell us all the time yeah, there's something something's not right there you don't ask sure what it is. But it's something that we were quick on these on these matters. Kids are to you sometimes someone says something that you almost can almost swear it's like you don't know how I just I know I just something I'm not sure Subhanallah people you know it just the the the radiate these things out. And it's not it's not what they say it's how it's what they do. It's how they practice things, how they live their lives, sort of like setting them was Danila Of course he was but well we're not we're not the major focus wasn't what he said some of them actually when you

00:44:24 --> 00:44:39

study all the hadith of you, but you by John measurement, like the book has 11,000 Hadith. It look at this. All he says is in his life. How much do we talk every day? They were literally every word he said was people tried to record but they didn't have like phones.

00:44:40 --> 00:45:00

slop in it for 24 hours. It wasn't it was just whatever they could remember when you look at Hadith and then you count maybe 23 years of his prophecies. So I said it didn't tell you that much. It actually didn't talk that much at all. Some of them because yeah, I need to start looking well. He didn't maybe talk maybe for eight, nine minutes today. It was it was just it was action. It was

00:45:00 --> 00:45:10

When he put down he went what got down into the trench and put the guy in the stand on his back and walked up. So I set him every single day for 15 days, is what sort of like sent him would get was given his part of the bounty or the loot after

00:45:12 --> 00:45:34

a battle. And then he gave it away to people before he went home and went home empty handed, didn't even take with him, like some days or something to feed his family. This is what they saw from him. Some of them when they walked by the message anytime of the night, they could see something with someone standing they come close and was one month old. I saw him standing making prayer. While they were all sleeping. When they were in the middle of battle, he was always the closest

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

ally kinda Rasulullah Salallahu Salam of caravana in it. I do. He was the closest one to us to the enemy. It was a standing behind in his tent, acting like he was running things or Yeah, and he'd taken no he was right there in front of the gun at the HMI and we're pleased. I mean, I'd be a lawsuit in law so I sent them and when things got really really scary, it kind of stand behind him. So I said I'm looking for refuge for a moment. Some allies so they got to see someone who said and didn't actually did more than what he said. Right? He actually he put it he practice way more than what he actually said anyway and fairly who should even listen to him is way more valuable than

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

cold. Even though both are valuable, extremely valuable. But when he did for the license that made the difference long term for the Sahaba because they couldn't they couldn't just change after he passed away somebody can do their own thing they watched Him they watched it they couldn't they couldn't be because you can always interpret words, can you you can always Yanni, you can always bend words. Someone says something you know, he's kind of been find a way out of what he said, Wait, understand it, and that suits me. We can't bend actions, actions or actions. He did it for us and we live with them. He saw what he did. I can't I can't run away from that. I have to Shaheed right

00:46:45 --> 00:47:19

again, he's an example. But you don't need Allah. He's someone who called people to the way of Allah subhanaw taala whether he did it with anyone he taught what he meant when he explained in the Quran that he brought into Hadith that that he explained to us why Salam or whether he role modeled it for us, Elisa to Islam, and this is this is a valuable thing, role modeling, as parents, as educators as Muslims, if you want to be a direct Allah, you want to work for Allah subhanaw taala only be employed by Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, just like his prophets were, then be a role model, role model for Muslims. Don't focus on what others are doing. Focus on how you can be the best you can

00:47:19 --> 00:47:48

be. You walk in, you see all those shoes everywhere. Don't talk to people to pick it up, go pick it up yourself. Because that's what you think that would be the best course of action wouldn't it wouldn't be the best course of action. If you actually pick it up yourself and clean it, that means you're the best you can be role model, you can't then hold your tongue. If you can't be the best you can be you gotta be the best role model for Muslims like he wants to Allah, Allah when he's like this, and then maybe hold back your criticism. Maybe it's better that way. Because we're not getting anywhere with that. That doesn't take us anywhere. But be the best role model you can be be the best

00:47:48 --> 00:48:26

person, whatever you think Kenny is missing. Go do it. Go do the best you can do. Go offer it yourself. Don't sit around asking why isn't this being offered? Why isn't that being done? And where is this and where's that just go do yucky know, when there's not helping. We've been talking for like 120 years, at least just talking talking. Because we're saturated with talk, no one wants to hear anymore. And you literally no one wants to turn on his channel or listen to a shift talk anymore. People are tired of listening to talk, what they need is some role modeling. I think that's what in that will make that is gonna make the change. And the next generation or two is gonna make

00:48:26 --> 00:48:41

the change is the practice is the actual conviction through through through actions that will make the difference. That's the fourth The fifth and final. And my favorite was the lodge and when you're like what is the lodge?

00:48:42 --> 00:49:27

So it is a lamp in Arabic. Why? Because it radiates. So the concept of of the lodge that radiates is to make that more clear settled. When you sit on the horse. Why is it called the surge because you sit on it? It's an animal. So he's breathing. So the whole thing is radiating. It's not it's moving. There's a there's there's a wave like movement when you're sitting on the horse back on the cell to John the the saddle that they have. So the word itself has a concept of a bit of radiation. sociologically means something is radiating something is vibrating something is is being produced that may not be seen. Something that is being produced may not be you can see it or you can't put

00:49:27 --> 00:50:00

your hand on it. But it's there. The presence of it, the presence of it is strong, even though you can't put your hand on it. Munira that is enlightening. So he's SLM is a Suraj. He's a vibrating source of light to at least to a certain meaning you didn't really have to sometimes talk to him. Again, this is all coming back to the point that I'm trying to make through these ideas. All you have to do is sit beside him sort of lies in them. Maybe he put it Yanni, just being in his vicinity Ali salatu salam you would find you would find what you were looking for. And how many times in the sealer Do you read the stories were

00:50:00 --> 00:50:37

Are where that happened time and time again, were assigned him in Salem, and other scholars of the Jewish tribes and in Medina, it would bring his son and they would go after a full night of agreeing to how they were going to debate with this new guy who's calling himself a prophet, or they're gonna be with him and prove him wrong, and prove that he doesn't know what he's talking about. And they had all the points they took from the Torah, Torah, 110 of them from the Talmud, and they took all everything that they needed, and they were prepared to argue against him some advice and, and they get up in the spin mental night and they go to him in the early morning and slept all night and

00:50:37 --> 00:51:09

they're ready to to end this once and for all and to prove that he doesn't know what he's talking about. And they have a long list and they've been talking about it the whole way. I need to explain you're preparing, preparing how they're going to do this. The father is telling the son you start I'll start will say this, you'll say that all that stuff, they walk, they knock on the door, he opens up Salah Alia Solomon, says I should do a La ilaha illa who and Nicolas Zulu and the kid freaks out. Whatever thought he had when he Oh my son over 11 He looked at his face smile, because this is not the face of Allah. So Allah Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, look at him, this

00:51:09 --> 00:51:19

is not a liar. Let us say we don't need this, throw it out. Throw the plan in the words just throw it out, throw it out, vibrating source of light radiating source of light. So the license

00:51:20 --> 00:52:03

will help us to tell us coulomb Khaled beam receiver, the cartoon Maura every time something horrible happened to me, I remember a number of things. The first thing I remember that go to lambda confini remember that this difficulty wasn't something that made me lose my own faith. I didn't lose my faith over it. This difficulty that came, I still have my snap at least with regard to the Harlem tekun album McKennitt. I remember that it could have been worse. Not always. It always can be worse. It could have been worse. But it still might occur to you follow the difficulty Rasulillah so I set them and then I remember Yeah, I need the biggest mercy but that ever happened to me is the day I

00:52:03 --> 00:52:07

lost the profits of Lysa them. He's no longer here. But it will me and said the film was three Mina

00:52:09 --> 00:52:23

and album I'm out. We'll see. We'll be here. Fedora Sula. Until the day of judgment, it will continue to be that the worst thing that ever happened to the Muslims was the fact that the prophets of Allah Hazleton passed away that you and I did not get to sit with him or at least

00:52:24 --> 00:53:01

we didn't get to speak with him. We didn't get to experience him on a so to speak, even for a split second for a moment. Didn't get to. And if you don't feel right now that this is the biggest loss of your life, if we don't feel it is the worst thing that ever happened to us that we were not fortunate enough that we didn't get the Sahaba of rasool Allah so I said, you get to sit with him. Speak to him, listen to Him and be with him even for a small moment within a speck of time. Now we don't know we haven't really understood much about this Deen he was faithful I sent him a hadith made him a Muslim. But yeah, it's even Almighty Gunas you only know when to be when I'm your only

00:53:01 --> 00:53:09

they'll become people at the end of time will believe in me. And they've never seen me. Yeah, what do I do home? Laura Annie be Molly he.

00:53:10 --> 00:53:22

Some of them. These people will wish or they will hope that they could see me and sacrifice their wealth and their families mean they're willing to give away everything. Had they just been given a moment to sit with rasool Allah and Allah said,

00:53:23 --> 00:53:25

Yes, is not a promise

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

of what

00:53:28 --> 00:53:30

inshallah wouldn't be in heaven won't be do

00:53:31 --> 00:53:42

you think is of course, yes. Salallahu Salam, that is definitely a promise of someone going to join us in Sharla do to make dua for me, then shall we get both of us and everyone here in Charlotte gets to go and see him sort of the audio.

00:53:44 --> 00:54:03

But that is, but that is the final and that is that is the point. Now if we don't feel that the biggest loss of our lives is that we didn't get to be with him. Some of us that live in every day that goes by we think about that. I just wish I for a moment, just for a split second guy to sit and look at his face Alia salatu salam for a moment. And

00:54:04 --> 00:54:32

when he came in, he met the prophets lie Selim. He met him only for a few moments. And they talked very, very briefly about the deen and he told them go Yeah, I'm not I'm not gonna come back when they become really powerful. And he said okay, so I'm going to Absa he started to walk backwards. So the prophets I seldom understood the idea So he stood there looking at me with knobs right and just walking backwards and they're asking what are you doing gotta pull to enough see the Aleena or hooba Dalio I said to myself, I may not see him again after this day for doing

00:54:34 --> 00:54:47

so I said I'm so I wanted to fill my eyes by looking at his face. So I said for as long as possible. So the problem is he just stood there and he I didn't want to break his heart or Yaniv walk away and look away at least until I'm about to couldn't see him anymore. And then he and he continued to walk or you slept with

00:54:48 --> 00:54:59

someone passing away and causing the pain that he caused to people who are extremely intelligent and extremely committed. Like Well, Booker, and Omar not read this story when he passed away Celexa

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

And look at these people as they they're falling to pieces. Why? Because of the value of what his presence meant his presence forget about anything other forget about any other detail regarding what he did that he says I'm just the presence. The fact that he's no longer here was something that he was disabling to them they couldn't they couldn't see themselves wanting to continue to live anymore. What's What's the worth living? If he's not around on a soul to Saddam if he's not here for us to share our lives with? Why would I want to continue? I'd rather just die right now or wish I was dead? If he's not here at least talk to us about what's your margin Munira it's a chronics

00:55:36 --> 00:56:15

phrases now I didn't make it up. Here's some sort of advice because see if this if this figure of speech had come in the eye out without everything before it, meaning you have to be you in now so NACA theologian Munira, without Shahidan or by Shimon, whenever the and I don't hit Allah without all these jobs, just all these description of his job, so I sell them meaning you're an example. You are Jani a bear, I'm glad tidings you're a Warner of punishment, and you are a role model and educator to them, which is all his role. So I said, I put in one, then you could say she asked him when he was just a figure of speech is just a source of lights and the lights and them in the

00:56:15 --> 00:56:46

meanings that he teaches. But no, those came before. So really, there was no point of bringing this word up. If it didn't have a separate meaning. I understand what I'm saying there was no point of it being there if it didn't have a meaning that was separate from the other meanings before it. And the Quran is nothing that is just repetitive for no reason. Everything in the Quran has an Brinton additional meaning. So what does theologian Munira bring to this equation? More than Shahed question and even though Angela, everything is covered, she was just an issue of character.

00:56:47 --> 00:57:23

And just something that you can't understand, neither can I. But we can weep that we didn't get to understand it. Just something about his presence to the lesser limb, about his heart. Something about just being beside him staying with him for a day just being close to him. Just something about him on the inside was different from everyone that you met you know what you couldn't meet you're no one you would meet no one else like him so I said I'm except those who actually are like him, some of the audience like this. But yes, those who are like him, that will be like Him, those who live their lives up to that standard Allah subhanaw taala give that to us. You You have met people in

00:57:23 --> 00:57:59

your life, that are Siraj ammonia, people that just radiate that late. You're beside them and you just feel like you want to continue to be beside them and then they pass away or they move away and you feel so bad. And you're a scholar or a teacher or a father or an uncle or a friend. Somebody is tired that special thing about the different than everyone else. Yes. And those who live like him some Allah he's and then we'll be like Kimani. So it was Thermaltake that that special thing that special charisma that he had to sell but everything about him. people enjoying just being just being there, even though they're not really like him who is from Allah He know I'm ill to be Amelie

00:57:59 --> 00:58:34

Rasulullah would I be angry? I'd be back to normal. I never did the deeds of Rasulullah arroba Cromer when I came up to over I loved them for him to have been at home Ella shawarma home. Volume to me we have betta home or Shama home, I found out the prophet has explained it that if I love them, I'll be able to be with them. You'll milk em FMF it actually be che in front of Have you heard nothing made me happier than the fact that I knew that if I love them enough, I'll be able to be with them. Why not just passing away or the Allah who I know. And they look at him and he's extreme pain, but he's smiling. I put him I look at the back. Why are you laughing? Because

00:58:36 --> 00:59:12

tomorrow I meet the beloved ones, one month and I see Mohammed is in his in his crew tomorrow, and I'll leave this and I got to go with him. So I'm looking forward to be with him. Elisa, Rajan Munira, some of the most beautiful and probably one of most beautiful descriptions of his character, a lady by the name of so many Allah Akbar the neighborhood. And the confusion happened and people weren't sure if he actually survived for the lights anymore. He didn't survive. She starts to walk out of Medina towards the hood. And she's looking in concern that people are seeing her and every time they see her they give her condolences, and they feel bad they look down and Claudia on ulama

00:59:12 --> 00:59:52

home Allah may Allah Subhan Allah have mercy upon them, but the human mother for whom what happened to the prophet for the Kula in number two fears, okay, so she says, Okay, your husband, Jani is a Marjorie passed away for tokoto hamdulillah Dr. Murad 100 That's what he wanted. He left with that intention. Muda Farida Bella so there we have it in the profit for Kyle who will be great, it's fine. Clark la Hola. Hi, Tara who know until I see him and she continues to walk and then another group and they offer their condolences. And they say, Rahim Allah who might have forgotten what happened to the prophets for Cardona? When am I able to key your senpai knees March avacado the

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

Hydra Beto This is why I raised him hamdulillah metaphor Isla de la Selena what happened to the Prophet? So I said look for God who will get at it.

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

It's good to know Hi Tara who have to see him so she keeps on walking in another group offer their condolences and they tell her your name may Allah have mercy on him your brother passed away by that hamdulillah the Furby he owe me my mother will be proud of him murder for a record of the Prophet Islam as well.

01:00:18 --> 01:00:48

But not attempts you had to select until you saw him on demand coming back for clinical Hamdulillah coolmuster I've been doing it occasionally Rasulillah every masiva as long as you're okay is fine you know, so that we can deal with it. So as long as Hamdulillah that your your well, for Donna was a man who at the end of the after Moscow was conquered and the prophets I said was doing his first start off with the Muslims and Islam were taken down, he decided that he was going to kill him, they took him knife and he put it in his pocket, and he's walking behind and they're doing a bake Allah who might have begun he's just hanging up and tried to like everyone else. And he's walking through

01:00:48 --> 01:00:57

people finding his way to the crack tank and trying to come close. And then he comes close to the Prophet. So I said to him, and he's holding on to his neck when he's ready in the private sector and turns around.

01:00:58 --> 01:01:05

And he doesn't know because he's not sure what to do. But if I had to who selected him put his hand up to three booni I said he's going to hit me.

01:01:07 --> 01:01:46

The highlights on the insert to put his hand like this on my chest. Seeing a tequila hire for Ebola, have Taqwa for Ebola, smiling, of course, you're going to see me smiling at my face. It took him a year for Ebola. It took in La Jolla foodora But for PMS Kulu I kept on seeing in putting clothes cabinet and yada yada who Allah so that we can see lay before he put his hand on my chest. I hated him more than I hated anyone in my life. But he was totally in the moment he after he did that. For me. I mean, I hadn't I hadn't really and I loved no one more than I loved him. So I told him, I took out the name and I threw it away. Then he said lots of poetry and it's an old story. You can look at

01:01:46 --> 01:02:25

it you can look back at in the Sierra, Sierra Germany Rasul Allah Allah Salam, may that be something that we all only feel the true loss of that theologian monniera sallallahu alayhi salam, whereby sharing meaning an old prophet, give them Whitman's the glad tidings bear, bear with them, or offer them the good news offered the believers the good news, the Anila home that they will have from Allah subhanaw taala fell blink Kabira a great bounty and a great reward. So this is for you in sha Allah, say insha Allah Amin JAL, all of this is offered for you and for me in sha Allah, you believe in Him subhanaw taala he believed in his mission, so Allah is Allah, Allah subhana senses, the good

01:02:25 --> 01:02:31

news to all of us, that fumbling Kabira that a great, great bounty and reward is waiting is waiting for all of us.

01:02:33 --> 01:02:39

And the final command he was given in this chapter will end with it well, to boil caffeine will move up now.

01:02:41 --> 01:02:42

Did we hear something like that before?

01:02:43 --> 01:03:16

Yes. So go back to the beginning, you find the exact wording right. When I talk my talk to you with the introduction, go back to the introduction of this, this surah because I talked about in detail. don't obey the disbelievers in the hypocrites, don't obey them. don't obey them doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to tell you to do something, they're going to do it. Don't obey means don't be like, don't be similar as well as pi is not just someone commanding you, and you following the command BA is also doing whatever they're doing, being similar to them following their footsteps without Google and Katherina. When we're not feeling don't walk down the road they want you to walk

01:03:16 --> 01:03:49

Don't be sucked into their narrative. Don't let them beat you with their with their backstabbing with their slandering, and with their bad words that they have to say they backed by a bid against him. So I said, I'm right after he married Xena does or to speak about him. He's gonna make him feel bad level, don't go for it. And I'm gonna have to clean don't let them change you. Don't let them harm you. Don't follow them. Don't Don't be changed by them, whether either home elite and leave their harm where it is. Don't don't absorb their harm. Leave it where it is. It's worthless. It doesn't mean anything to you. Well, it's a beautiful piece of advice. Seriously, one of the best

01:03:49 --> 01:03:50

pieces of advice when

01:03:51 --> 01:03:59

someone harms you just leave it there. Visualize it being any garbage. Just leave it. Don't take it. Don't take it home.

01:04:00 --> 01:04:34

Don't digest it, just just leave it. It's harm. There's nothing in it. There's nothing in it. Well, don't let it get to you. Don't let it change you don't let it harm you don't let it die. That means leave literally in Arabic means leave that home their home, how do you leave their home? Literally that means it has no meaning it linguistically that there's no meaning to it, you have to understand it figuratively? Well, it's meaningless, what their home is just a figure of speech. Don't let it get to you. People are going to tell you the worst things. It's just how we are just how we function. We just We never say good things they were very rarely do. It's always gonna get if you do

01:04:34 --> 01:04:59

something wrong, you're gonna hear about it. And not once you'll hear about it many times maybe till the day you die. He'll just be reminding you of it. You do good things and people forget about a guy named instant, instantaneously, but bad things, the bad criticism, the bad words the bad guy, the negative energy, the negative. The only criticism always come or leave it. Just leave it where it is, is where it was said and the words fall to the ground, walk away, walk or whatever.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:35

Kill Allah, Allah and depend upon Allah subhanaw taala make sure that your dependence is upon him subhanaw taala upon no one else. And if you do that, then you can see how this is so much really so related to the story before, after he suffered through that, that experience of doing what he was told. And then living through the backlash he knew was going to come. Look, don't, don't obey them don't don't change the way you are because of them. Don't let their harm get to you. depend upon Allah Subhana Allah Wa Kafa BiLlahi Akela the only one you ever need to depend upon is him Subhana wa Tada you don't need anyone else depend upon Him and He will take care of you and you'll be and

01:05:35 --> 01:05:49

you'll be taken care of. So Allah Allah He would like us to know Sallam this is for us. He is told to do things and then it's related to us. I'll stop with that inshallah. And in the next maybe what is how much do we have? Nine minutes. I'll share with you another hikma last week we began talking

01:05:51 --> 01:06:21

with him called him and I thought II for even Alpha Illa secondary. And here's an old scholar who wrote around 264 70 forest with a piece of wisdom I can't remember anymore. I think there's 64 He wrote a number of wisdoms and these wisdoms or any take cared for by scholars throughout the the eras of based on the depth and the Prophet profoundness that they had it last time I shared the first one today I'll start with the with this second one, probably not be able to explain the whole thing, maybe half of it. He says mo Lysa Dukkha

01:06:23 --> 01:06:24

Did you read

01:06:25 --> 01:06:38

my family law he like Phyllis Bob Mina Shekhawati lafiya, where they took a suburb, my economist in law he read Mr. Khan, and in him Medallia, I'm gonna explain in English, it's very, it's a bit

01:06:39 --> 01:06:40

complex in English.

01:06:42 --> 01:07:20

In order to get Treasury for you to want to be in a state where you don't have to deal with the, with the logical rules of the world, where you want to be in a state of mysticism of closeness to Allah subhanaw taala, and a state where you're dealing with something that is beyond logic and beyond the rules that govern the universe, when Allah subhanaw taala put you in a situation that is governed by logic is basically a hidden desire, a whim shall walk or fear, that's what it is, and for you to want to be within the rules of logic, if you want to you wanting to make sense and to work with the rules of the universe at a time that Allah subhanaw that put you and required you to

01:07:20 --> 01:07:31

do something that does not follow those rules, is you falling from a higher role that he gave you supine without it that is the that is the literal translation of this, of this wisdom. Now, what does it mean?

01:07:32 --> 01:08:01

It talks about the balance as Muslims, were required to have a balance between two between two things. Alright, let me let's Bob anatomy did you need not him and I speb is the world that is governed by all the laws of the universe, that we have every single law, from gravity, to causality, to the laws of just making a living, if you work well, and not making a living, if you don't just as simple as that. And then there's automaticity, the world where these laws don't apply.

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

Where's your logic, money becomes a concept, where there's something that doesn't follow these laws, where Allah subhanaw taala is not asking you to go out there and work with the world, but he's asking you to look into yourself and show and do acts of worship that bring yourself closer, like Salah when you think about it, we just saw a productive hour, from a logical perspective, is that a productive

01:08:24 --> 01:08:57

amount of time that you're spending when you sit there and you and you start reading the Quran is that you rent time and time again, you're not necessarily thinking about it, just reading it for the joy that you get for reading the Quran. Or you sit there you do this via Subhan, Allah hamdulillah ilaha IL Allah, you're not necessarily Mr. Thinking about all of it. That is something that when you think about it, from a logical perspective, may not be the most productive hour of your day. But he's talking about these two types of functioning. And then if Allah subhanaw taala gives you a mission, or puts you in a situation where you have to live by the laws of the universe, the logical

01:08:57 --> 01:09:30

laws that dictate everything, and then you leave that and then you go look for something else. You look for an item of energy, you want to be into greed, you want to be in a state where you're just worshiping Allah subhanaw, taala, mystically, spiritually on an emotional level, but you're not actually producing anything at all. That is a hidden desire is the shadow of fear. That is, because I'll give you I'll give you the example. You're a husband, you're a father, and you have a job. Now, you in order for this to work, you have to raise your children, you have to pretreat your wife properly, have a proper relationship with her, you need to do well in your job, you have to do your

01:09:30 --> 01:10:00

work properly, you have to make sure that is the laws of the universe. This is This is you taking all the ASVAB doing all the taking care of all the rules and making sure they work. Now if you were to say I don't want to do any of that, I want to sit and I want to worship Allah subhanaw taala and come to the masjid and you just spend the majority of your time doing sort of work and drink this beer and liquor reciting the Quran. That's all you want to do. You have no interest in doing anything else. And if I ask you why are you doing that? You say well, that Allah subhanaw taala is the governor of the UAE governs the universe and he says

01:10:00 --> 01:10:34

We can just give me money if He wills. He can take care of my children if he wants, that he can take care of my marriage. If that's if that's his desire. That's his hikma. subhanaw taala will take care of all that correct? No, of course not correct. But he would say, is that acceptable? Is that a type of behavior that is okay, doing that. You could say, well, look how pious this person is. Look out Pisces this person. He's always praying. He's always reading. He's always in advocating Allah subhanaw taala remembering him. But is he doing that now in a time where Allah subhanaw taala has put him in a different place and given them a different mission, where he shouldn't be obeying the

01:10:34 --> 01:10:45

laws of the universe that he created themselves if I know what Darla and if he does if he is, and this is not an act of piety. He is not doing this because he loves Allah more. No, he's doing it because he has a hidden desire deep in his heart. I

01:10:46 --> 01:10:48

mean, the intention isn't even good.

01:10:49 --> 01:11:16

Even the intention isn't actually good. He thinks it is. He thinks that intention is also I want to worship Allah. No, you don't. There's something hidden inside that you just don't want to acknowledge. You're running away from doing your job. Either you're too scared to fail. Or you feel like you feel like you can do it. Or you want people to praise you for doing something else. We're sitting in the masjid all day and being a good just, but not taking care of your job. When you see people and you just do not see people like that.

01:11:17 --> 01:11:35

Someone who is exhausting his effort in doing things for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and coming out and doing pm alone and fasting and, and get and then you look at his home. And it's a mess. In the marriage isn't working and the kids are being taken care of and his career is going nowhere. And he's not.

01:11:37 --> 01:12:14

Why? Why are you looking to do something different than what Allah subhanaw taala put you into do in the first place? You're in the position of a suburb, that's where he puts you in the world of it requires you to do this Bob, why are you asking for a different state? Why are you trying to run away from that it's something different now that there's half of the the wisdom, that's half of it, because you could understand me misunderstand what I just said right now and say, oh, so we shouldn't we shouldn't come into No, because if you flip it, it's just as bad. were identical as Bob economische law he didn't hit off on anything materially. And then Allah subhanaw taala puts you in

01:12:14 --> 01:12:38

a situation where he asks you for the act of spiritual worship when that's what he wants from you. He wants from you to pray to stand up even though this doesn't seem the most logical thing to do based on the laws that you were taught and what you what you're observing around you but no, go make will do. Well, I didn't I didn't do anything right now. I wasn't I wasn't working with filth or cement or I need an adjuster. I was just

01:12:40 --> 01:12:56

all I was doing a deal just sitting at home and they let guys out. So I'm gonna make you do yes make we'll do why because because this is our limit that you need. There's something different for you to to pursue the ASVAB and that is falling from a higher rank. I'll talk about that a little bit more on the show next week. I'm sorry, I've lost track of time so buckle up you should want

01:12:57 --> 01:13:00

to be late. Also Allah Azza Muhammad Ali. He was not happy at

01:13:01 --> 01:13:01
