points out a number of concepts and ideas in the story itself that maybe maybe you didn't pay attention to, that he wants to make sure that you understand and take with you from the student from the story itself. And that is why there's always commentary after almost every sort of every story within the mind and

00:00:18--> 00:00:52

not a exception. Actually, it has one of the most rich commentaries in the whole Quran. So if you want to talk about a cluster of diets that are serving a purpose, and this case from 22, up to 2031, or a number of comments on the storytelling of guff and they're very rich with the meanings inside them, they're very much related to the theme of the story. The story of who you know will look into them today with some level of detail and what they will see what Allah soprano is trying to teach us here and what we can learn so we start from at number 22

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

That will be led you Nina che Hall and Wadi.

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

Bismillah your Walkman your walkie

00:01:07--> 00:01:14

say a Munna don't watch telly go home boo

00:01:18--> 00:01:19


00:01:21--> 00:01:26

de su can go Rajim and Bill ye

00:01:31--> 00:01:31


00:01:46--> 00:01:47


00:01:49--> 00:01:50

dirty him

00:01:51--> 00:01:52


00:01:54--> 00:02:13

rugby the lamb is completely removed from the citation. When you refeed recites continuously so it's no wonder of the sport. The lamb is written at all from above because a lot of work being carried continuously man who is only

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

to mad if he left me Oh,

00:02:22--> 00:02:23


00:02:25--> 00:02:26


00:02:30--> 00:02:33

this stuff Divi him in

00:02:36--> 00:02:37


00:02:39--> 00:02:54

so the first commentary on the story, we've talked about the theme of the sort of the kind of the number of times before, but just in case you forgot the concept of sort of God, it says McKee sort of earlier as well, or amendment he's gonna say

00:02:55--> 00:03:32

it talks about the elements that you need in order to build a society or to build a civilization to build a community that is prosperous and capable of sustaining itself. There are four basic elements. So that kind of goes and talks about them one by one in four separate stories. And it's very unique in that matter. Why because the story, the stories that existence will go are not repeated elsewhere in the Quran, are not repeated anywhere else, the story after it that is, what's happening, the gender thing doesn't exist anywhere else. Those are names story doesn't exist anywhere else, Musa hubba does not exist anywhere else, it's only as we go. And you'll find that

00:03:32--> 00:03:47

many sorts of stories are repeated elsewhere. The military people are here, and they're here. And they're there for different reasons. But the forest stories are unique to the surah. And then you add to that uniqueness or the loss of power to Allah commanded the students

00:03:49--> 00:04:20

to recite this surah every single week. So it's something that you're required to read every week. And it's supposed to be something, of course, there's going to be some level of importance to it. Why because every week, we're supposed to remind ourselves what it is that we're here to do, and how we're going to do it. So we're supposed to have strong societies and civilizations that we can sustain themselves. However, we need Romans, you need the last one start from the beginning to end, the end is power, then put a name and then before that is no like it was invisible. And then before that as well, which is have a gender date. And the first one is a story of America, which is the

00:04:20--> 00:04:26

idea. You need to have the proper idea. Got to know what it is you stand for. You have to have the right

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

list of values.

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

You have to have the right ideology. What is it that you're here to do? What purpose do you serve?

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

What fundamental principles Do you stand by? These are the most important the most important thing of all, if that's not clear, and everything else may help you, having knowledge and money and power may help you, but it will be will lack structure, and you'll make many mistakes, because you don't know why you have it. It's not going to clear to you why do I need both? Why do I need knowledge and why do I want to seek power? If it

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

idea isn't there to guide you as what you're going to use all this force, where are you going to channel all that energy and wealth and money and power, then you're going to end up getting completely lost, it's going to be a lost cause, the first thing is, you have to have the idea. And you have to have the right attitude towards that idea. Meaning you need to understand that this idea is something you're going to spend your life living for, you're going to stand by, he's going to be taking a standard ethical standard moral standards, a conceptual standard.

00:05:30--> 00:05:42

And you need to put yourself in sacrifice your time and life for it. And sometimes it's going to be hard sometimes is going to be difficult. But having people who have the contrary idea having people who have clarity on what it is they stand for, that's why I had a

00:05:44--> 00:06:19

team, the team was there, because why because they vote down what it is they stood for, they numerated the points, this is what we this is what we are, this is what we aim to do. This is where we're going is where we start. And these are our destination is and these are all the all the steps in between that we can see so far. These are our values. And these are our morals and ethics. Without that everything else is useless. Even on an individual level, it doesn't get this important, even on an individual level, it's all useful just to talk stop talking about societies for a moment, let's just think about building the character of one person,

00:06:20--> 00:06:59

you're going to need knowledge, of course, you're going to need more money. And later on, you're going to hope for some level of status, which is basically what power is in one way or another. Depending on how you look at it, right? All of that in the light of individual is useless. It is worthless, if you don't have the right idea. If you don't have the proper mentality, the mindset is not good. So yes, you may raise your children, right, we may raise our youth, men and women. And we make sure that they go to school, so they have the knowledge. And they make sure they get a job when they have the money. And then we can get them all our connections and like so they have some power.

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

But if they don't have the idea is all for waistline, it means nothing, it means nothing. Because it doesn't stand for anything. All of that is not going to be channeled in any direction, it's not going to serve a cause there's no purpose for it. Why? Because there's no modality behind it. How many people live like that in the world today.

00:07:17--> 00:07:54

The vast majority, how many Muslim people live like that, unfortunately, also the majority. But if that can change, everyone can learn the story, then you can understand those young individuals, how they decided that the way things are happening, the way things are going wrong. And this has to change. And I'm going to be a part of that chain understand for something I'm going to revise all the ideas that I have, and all the previous judgments that I that I need and come up with something that I know I can live for. It's a code I can live by, and a purpose I can live for, then things become much more important. The first, the first item commentary here is extremely important. Very,

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

it's a very interesting subject to the idea, say a guru and what people will say later on, say, they will say Farah, June, there were three guys, Robbie roncal, boom, and the fourth was their dog. And others will go ahead we will say concert on your five of them. So this alone can go home and the sixth was their dog. Watch him and believe just wave is the unseen or the unknown. Roger man is just taking a lucky guess. Some of those are five and the six of the dogs that's taking a lucky guess. Yes, shooting in the dark, basically, exactly. The regime. And by the way, if you want to find the proper now all you need is exactly like shooting in the dark. No idea just for I think there were

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

five answers. We're going to start with that middle one can go many others will say seven of the eight was the dark?

00:08:40--> 00:09:05

How does how does that matter? Why does that matter? Why does their number matter to you? If there's three or five or seven or eight or 15? Or two or one? How is that important? How did you read the story of Biden's cough? And then the first thing that came to your mind is well, how many of them were there? No, no, I have you know, how many of them were there? Five? Oh, no, I don't think it's five. It was five and then it was three and what happened? And then you waste time.

00:09:06--> 00:09:43

We ended up distracted wasting time talking about something that's utterly useless. utterly useless, completely unimportant. That has no connection whatsoever to the to the theme of the story, to the moral of the story. What is your take from all of this? He just ended up reading, talking about something that you're distracted by. This is completely unimportant. You'll find people talking two, three, and four and five and six and seven. Who cares? Because if you wanted to know he would have told you there were five guns, but that's not the point. Another reason for this is that if you remember at the beginning of this explain some guns I told you that one of one of the reasons for

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

its revelation was that you should again we're looking for a way to beat the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intellectually defined something he couldn't bring an answer for. So they went to the scholars tab and they asked them, Give me Give tell us something that no one knows.

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

He will not know even if he studied at Deloitte and GE, because I thought that maybe he studied at some point or learned from someone that no one knows about very high, greatest scholars, and it's a secluded issue, people don't talk about it. So they gave him three questions. One of the questions were asking about the Seven Sleepers, or the sleepers, because he didn't know the number. And then the proper size, Mr. Fisher appears and brought the suit up. Now the thing is, even amongst the scholars themselves, they debated the numbers. So the Quran told the story, exactly like they knew it exactly that they had it. And then the Quran said that there's, you know, some people say, three,

00:10:37--> 00:11:09

some will say, five, some will say seven, two things are taken from us. This, first of all, we're not supposed to waste time talking about trivial issues that are left out on purpose, because it's not important for us to know to get it's not something we should wasting time trying to understand, learn the concept of the story, so you can actually benefit from it. So you can grow as a person you can prove yourself and the way you think, and the way that you act, numbers don't matter. Another reason for that is that the scholars of advocates out themselves did not know what the number was. Me, they debated they weren't sure. So when they listened to this, they were awed by they stood. But

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

my gosh, even even our feet, if they know about it, of the province wasn't even brought up the issue of our PDF, to the detail of what was being they need. Whether it was three, five or seven guys, not for six or eight.

00:11:23--> 00:11:28

Boys with a three, five or seven, that's what they had, they were debating, and the Quran brought the exact numbers. So for them

00:11:29--> 00:12:03

completely quiet after that. But for us, the importance of this is that you're not supposed to be distracted by the trivial issue by the superficial pieces of information that don't serve and don't feed into the purpose and concept of the story itself. Because when they talk to you about the story, give you a lot of ideas, I told you that this story is talking about a group of young individuals who decided that they didn't want to live passively anymore, they want to take a stand. So they did and they started socially and financially supporting their community and bringing in a fresh way of thoughts, the Oneness of Allah. So what that what that means. And I told you the

00:12:03--> 00:12:36

difference between understanding seeing that and then believing in political Islam, or Allah of having children and how that's a very different way of thought, it's not just an abstract belief. It's not just an abstract idea. If there's more than one God, how does that make them different as a person than believing in one another very different, because it gives you a very different way of seeing life in general and existence. And they brought that forward. And they didn't think for a moment that doing that they were gonna make an actual difference in the kingdom that was totally corrupt, in a population that was over 500,000 people. But Allah subhanaw taala, put them to sleep

00:12:37--> 00:13:11

for 300 years, 300 years, what happened was people got, they thought that the king had killed them because of what they were doing what they were calling for. People got very angry. And they found that a team that they had, and they saw, they saw the list of rules that they live by the list of fundamental principles that they that they stood for, and people liked it. We were angry, and they start talking about amongst themselves and talking about it. Every time someone does say it at this community. He goes and tells them and, and it became a big issue. And then people started to, you know, have protests and walk. They made noise and, and a few 100 years and a couple of years, what

00:13:11--> 00:13:26

happened was, he was overthrown, and then failed was. And then slowly, slowly, the community changed and went from a community that was nonfunctional to one that believed in Allah subhanaw taala. Why? Because of the effort of a couple of guys, a couple of weeks, that Allah either woke them up so you can see it.

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

So they could see it. You see, this is what happened when you when you did what you did. This is the result of your efforts. And they did that again. Why just because just want to show them

00:13:40--> 00:14:11

it for us to think about because they could have just died. Right? That'd be the end of it. I mean, here's the story different way, but no, wake up. Take a look. But do you think you thought you couldn't make a difference? You think that's why the beginning of the beginning of the story. It says, I said to us Hi, welcome to rabbinic Annamaria. Tina algebra, you think that this is something that is very unique that we never do, again, that Allah Subhan is going to do for others? No, it's not magic. He does it all the time. We're the ones that don't extend were the ones who don't actually do anything of benefits, not Allah, not being able, we're not being willing to change the

00:14:11--> 00:14:38

laws of physics even for the sake for the sake of people will take a stab at the sun. The light of the sun was meant for them when they were sleeping. They were moved around for 200 years. Why? Why this miracle why this very difficult thing to understand, comprehend and believe it because they did something that is very rare, just as rare as that. The thing that he did was very rare is that they took a stand and they decided that no longer no longer were they gonna put up with that way of life.

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

All of that could be brushed aside. And then we could spend an hour talking about it. There were three or five or seven of them.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

And how was the dog? What type of dog was it?

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

He had his hands up like this and what way open close. Why was there a dog? Right I guess we started talking about something that has nothing to do with the story.

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

Nothing to do this has nothing to do with the story right talking about this, why is this important? That's why it's so fun for us to say, welcome the

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

team, Allah, my lord knows their number.

00:15:12--> 00:15:45

He is not debating the number. It's not him that doesn't know the number. And he want you to know the number he could have told you. But he didn't want you to remember why it was not important. Because there's no point of you knowing this number, it's not gonna change anything for you with the story. Believe that they're seven believe that they're fine with it. Three, believe whatever you want. Just understand the thing that he did tell you the story. Why are you looking for stuff that don't mean anything? Why is that? Why are the topics that aren't relevant to the story itself, and the moral of it being debated so much. We do it all the time. But we do it all the time with

00:15:45--> 00:15:56

everything in our lives, focus on things that are very trivial, very simple. And they will leave the issues that are extremely, extremely important for us. Maybe overlook that we brush aside, the actual

00:15:57--> 00:16:27

essence of what Islam is when it is when it comes to raising our youth or for our own selves, you forget what Allah subhanaw taala actually is looking at, he's not looking at our faces, he's not looking at our height or weight or width. He is looking at our hearts. He's looking at the way we think he's looking at the way we feel and how we judge others and judge ourselves and the perspectives that we have. And the purposes that we live for. This is what he's looking at soprano is always interested in, how is that something that we don't take time? How is that our not our number one priority in life to take care of that.

00:16:28--> 00:16:51

But yet, when it comes to the appearances, we make a big fuss on it. We fight with everyone on appearances a lot not to say that appearances aren't important they have a level of importance in Islam? Of course they do. You have to walk around with the right dress code as Muslim. But that is not the number one thing he looks at the panel. And that's the number one priority for us. That's not what he's interested first with.

00:16:52--> 00:17:12

The first interest is his intentions. His thought his mentality is how we feel and we think in our ambitions. And then after that he looks at the details of not that first. Why why why our priorities not clear anymore. Why did we mess up our priorities? I don't know. But this is a good example of the product. Please don't talk about the numbers. Please don't say that don't want to say this

00:17:13--> 00:17:30

is not important. Just say don't be Island. That's my number one. And only a few people know that. What was it? Who was ever there with them? Right, those who are on there with them know, if you live them, if you're one of their friends. I mean, if you saw the bodies, you know, if you weren't there, you're not going to know.

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

My number one in certain duration that some scholars know. Again, I don't see the point

00:17:38--> 00:18:17

automatically, to Maddie comes from the concept of which is the origin of media, which is to have doubts. So, Mira is for you to argue about something that there's a lot of doubts around the lack of clarity. And for us to debate something that doesn't have clarity surrounding it in the first place. It's one thing for you to debate and argue and issue that you know, 100%, it's clear, and the person in front of you is denying it. So if you're talking to someone about that, you know, hitting them while you debate and you argue as long as you need, right? If you're talking to someone about global warming stick to the point because it's insane that they still don't see that to be the issue now.

00:18:17--> 00:18:55

But if you're talking about something that does not have clarity on it, meaning in essence, in origin, this constant issue is not clear. It's not even clear to those who are specialists within it, then do not waste time arguing and debating it. Especially when there's a lot of what is not clear, obvious issues or clarity. There's a lot of evidence and it's not clear which one we haven't you haven't landed on something anything yet. So debating this superficially, that is a waste of time for that tomography, don't waste your time in learning a lot on why you know, except the superficial mentioning of the concept, which is basically recycling. Just whatever Allah just say

00:18:55--> 00:19:30

that this is what a lot of how does it there's a if you don't know. And leave it at that. And don't waste time going into details. Specifically when Allah Subhan Allah could have given it to you, but he didn't. What are the 50 feet this Defty is an important word because later on, it was derived into other things. It comes from the concept of faqeer or patois. Right, the steps it is for you to ask for us to work with you. For you to ask for clarification on an issue that is not clear to you, right? So first of all, don't talk about something that is doubtful in its essence, which is we don't know the numbers are not important. That's number one. Number two, don't ask anyone to vote

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

because you don't know you also know the product system did not know about the number. So don't ask anyone don't go looking for it. Let this just defeat him in there. Number Mindomo. Don't Don't ask anyone. Why, why? Why? Why? Because it's not important. That's why go ask about the things that are important. Ask him ask questions that you feel if you don't know is going to reduce your ability or limit your ability to function as a Muslim properly in life. That's what you need to ask about. Don't ask just for the benefit of just asking anything

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

because you don't, you only have so much space in your brain for information well you only have so much space, don't fill it with a lot of clutter you don't just put stuff in there that you don't need to know what you're gonna find out at one point you're gonna have to choose between basketball statistics and understanding what it is you need to be at some point you're going to have to start forgetting that stuff or you hold on to it and then that's what you're going to be known for. He's got to understand that you don't you like a lot of other things. It just comes to a point because there's only you can only fit so much information into the brain after a certain point you know,

00:20:33--> 00:21:01

okay I don't need this I definitely don't know this this complete Chat section can be just taken out this please bring in a bulldozer just throw it all away there's really completely useless information and then you need to keep keep space open for the things you need to know what other stuff don't don't don't do that don't ask don't go seeking knowledge from those who know it to find out the number because it is completion does that does that make sense? It's a complete lie of

00:21:02--> 00:21:16

telling us Can you please focus on what's important here in this sutra and don't waste time trying to find out what is completely irrelevant and insignificant. Okay, that's the first commentary on

00:21:20--> 00:21:26

what adds up Hulan Nellie che in Neva Valley

00:21:36--> 00:21:37


00:21:45--> 00:21:47

girl Rebecca either in a seat

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

any DNA to be

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

a DNA to be the apple robot I mean head washer

00:22:15--> 00:22:48

so this is a very common i Everyone knows this. At one point or another they read it many times when we think we know what it's talking about. We think it means whenever you do something saying shower which is 100% Gross. Every time you want to do something make sure that you take insha Allah it shows respect to Allah Subhana Allah Almighty it shows that you are keeping are conscious of him that you know that you can't really get anything done if he says dying, that is not going to happen. This is clear this is obviously the but this is not exactly what the IOC nuts not what the sudo was revealed for it's something much more deeper. What are the food and nourishing don't say about

00:22:48--> 00:23:30

anything you want to do or going to do in Neva Englander, that this is going to be my next step tomorrow. very methodical going to perform this tomorrow, right? Except a sha Allah, except if Allah subhanaw taala knows. Now that is the simple, literal translation we're doing. Now. What is this stuff you have in your life, many ambitions and hopes for the future? Everyone sitting here has a plan that maybe goes up to five maybe to 15 years? And what is what is it that he hopes to accomplish? Inshallah, in that time, some people, we kind of vary on how many years you actually look forward. But we all have some idea what are we going to do next year, the year after? Where I

00:23:30--> 00:23:54

hope to be in a couple of years, you have that idea? Now, before you do that, do not say that this is what I'm going to start doing tomorrow. Here's where I'm going to start performing tomorrow. Before you say before you ask, is that something that Allah subhanaw taala wants? Because your chef doesn't only mean Willy, it also means once. It's also something that falls under his will Subhana meaning what am I why am

00:23:56--> 00:24:06

planning to do tomorrow? Is it something that falls under our laws? Well, is this something that he will SubhanAllah? Or is it not? Or is this something if he were if I were to

00:24:07--> 00:24:24

consult with him upon on this issue? He would say no, no, this is definitely not the right step for you is obviously very, very wrong and you're thinking in the wrong direction. This is what he is talking about. And you'll see how the continuation went back here. Do not say about anything you want to do in the future. I am doing it before you say

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

is this something Allah subhanaw taala?

00:24:29--> 00:24:39

Is this what you want? Is this as well? Is this his plan? Is what he is hoping for me? Is this my destiny? And as I said, this is why He created me, or is there something else?

00:24:40--> 00:24:48

It's not about you saying inshallah. Now of course saying insha Allah is important because how many times have you planned on a sin and said in sha Allah for it?

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

How many times oh, I'm going to show a logo skills. Do that how long thing tomorrow? I'll see. You know, very rarely. I don't think anyone says that in VR. Of course, you're probably good

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

As you know, laying around, right? So when you say in sha Allah even even though even the simple way of understanding this still serves the basic idea, you see when you say in sha Allah for your plans for the future, what you basically are saying yeah, this is this is something Allah once this is this is his will, this is what he's hoping for. This is what he why He created me, this is my destiny. This is what he made me to do or needed me to do. We're also going to say Inshallah, right? It's not going to be doesn't make any sense for you to say in sha Allah about something that would actually anger him Subhan Allah Tala or is against his will was against his plan for you. It doesn't

00:25:33--> 00:25:45

sound right. So not only is about saying in general, no, it's the concept. What do you make your plan for the future? Right, especially specifically, younger guys. And all you make plans for you know,

00:25:46--> 00:25:55

this is important being an athlete, think very hard in luck. Why are you doing become an athlete? No one would never tell you not to. But why

00:25:56--> 00:26:30

is it something that Allah subhanaw taala? Wills? Are you doing it for the right reason is can you say in sha Allah, I'm going to be this. I'm going to be this great soccer or basketball or baseball? Can you say it in sha Allah, you put that there? Meaning what you're going to benefit from becoming that what you're going to do when you do achieve what you're hoping for is going to be in service of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his OMA or is it something different? Are you going to enjoy something else? See, if you're thinking in the right direction, you'll say insha Allah with an open with an open mind and open heart will say with strength with confidence. Because yes, I'm going to serve us

00:26:30--> 00:26:39

either through becoming a famous athlete or a famous artist or, or a politician or, or a teacher, whatever it is you want to do. There are no famous teachers, but yeah,

00:26:40--> 00:26:46

if you if you're teaching, you're gonna get I'm not going anywhere. Don't go, don't do what I do, and do something else.

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

Very unrewarding business

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

both socially and financially. This gentleman told me, uh, let me good morning. And

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

that's, that's the currency you were hoping for.

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

But you don't say that I'm going to do something. Don't say I'm going to do something before you think your shout Allah with Ma sha Allah? Is it something that Allah subhanaw taala? Would will? Or is it something that he wouldn't? That's why immediately the word after it, when things go wrong, Becca

00:27:16--> 00:27:48

and remind yourself and remember your Lord, if you ever forget, if you forget Allah subhana wa Tada, and you're planning, you're planning for the future. I'm gonna do this tomorrow. I do this later on my ambitions are this. And you don't you didn't put Allah's will. And you forget, remind yourself of Allah subhanaw taala, whatever you forget, and say, you know, oh, my gosh, this whole plan, Allah subhanaw taala does not exist in at all this whole time that I have this whole ambition for the future, when I lose, I'm going to do it tomorrow. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala will not be pleased. It's not something that you'll be satisfied with Subhanallah What am I doing this?

00:27:48--> 00:27:53

Remind yourself, whenever you forget with Cobra, immediately take a step back.

00:27:54--> 00:28:28

I should have I should have thought differently here. So the concept here is not just reminding a single child, remind yourself, are you doing this for the right reason? You see? That's basically what they do. And we look at this, because it's commentary on the story. That's basically what they did. First of all, they were not superficial, young individuals. So they wouldn't care about the numbers. They were looking at assets, and they were looking for substance. They want to change how people lived. They wanted to make people's lives better, in substance, and they were people who every time they saw the example of that, obviously, is once they were told that you're going to be

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

killed by the king, what did they do?

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

Oh, God, they retreated to the cave. Why? You got to think now.

00:28:35--> 00:28:54

You got to see is there a next step, you have to make sure our next step is going to be something that Allah subhanaw taala wills and once I can't do anything, I can just continue doing things after the reality has changed. Maybe what I'm doing right now with a change reality is not illogical. I need to sit down and think about it. We have to sit down and talk. The reality has changed dramatically.

00:28:55--> 00:29:30

is continuing doing what we're doing a lot as well. Or is it not? And they came up, okay. No, it's not we have to find something else. But they didn't get the chance to actually execute it last night to put them to sleep and woke them up if you want to use it as it was done. But that's what they did. They were very conscious and very aware of Allah subhanaw taala in their decisions and life decisions. Okay, if you can do that, then because you don't need anything else. Basically, you have the golden ticket to always stay on yourself to study. You'll never get lost and show them like every time you come up with a plan to do anything even short term plans even just where am I gonna

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

go tomorrow? Next? What am I gonna do next weekend? Well, let me just something interesting. Is this. Is this Allah willing? Will he be satisfied with this? Will he not be and he's basically just asking that question. If it wasn't okay then remind yourself of your remembered him. Remember your lawyer when you forget to record and then say I saw a D angiography. I said, I mean, it's perhaps but that's a very bad translation, but that's the actual word for word, literal translation, but I

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

I found the Quran means that the there's going to be a higher probability or may Allah do something for me I say don't be a deity May Allah guide me that this is the concept and I said it'll be a deity May Allah subhanaw MaiMai learn guide me the Abdullah Amin had mashallah for something that is closer to the Russia turn when I came up with

00:30:21--> 00:31:02

the algorithm and had the ultra mean closer and closer to then why have Manhattan what I've actually done and I shudder to the, to the path of Russia, Russia, it means success in this life that continues in the hereafter. I've talked about Russian many times before, this was the theme of the gin, if you remember a couple of year and a half ago, and then it was repeated twice in South Africa, Russia, is what I'm hoping to do something that will please Allah and be successful. I needed to do two things I needed to please Allah is entitled to by concepts. And it also needed to be successful. That's an example of you will do they work either in any other way. They shouldn't

00:31:02--> 00:31:13

work in any nothing should work in any other way. But I'll give you an example. Let's say you're starting a like a hot tub, or something as simple as this right? No one's gonna please Allah subhanaw taala. But will it be successful?

00:31:15--> 00:31:25

Right, so if you're hoping to be successful, then you'll say Russia, that's your partner, because it's going to be pleasing Allah and successful, we shouldn't be the criteria for everything that we

00:31:26--> 00:31:50

shouldn't be that is a Please Allah, and will it be successful, he doesn't want failures, isn't what plans are going to fail, now they will fail because that's the neck, the natural Niklas in the nature of life, right? That's the nature of everything, you're always going to fail number of times where it works out. But your intention should be that I'm going to do this for the sake of Allah, I'm going to make sure that it's going to be successful as well. It has to have to work out it can't be a failure.

00:31:51--> 00:32:13

So I'll call and then say after you remember your Lord in your decisions, as a D, on your off day, May my lord, I hope my Lord will guide me to something that is more successful than the plan that I actually came up with. Because you're coming up with plans, I'm going to do this tomorrow. Why? Because I thought about it. And it's something I shot Allah, it's something that Allah, Allah will be happy with. He wills this, I'm going to do it.

00:32:14--> 00:32:38

But then say at the end, you guide me to something even better than what I came up with. Because I came up with something good. I'm pretty sure, I'm pretty sure that I could make my plan there. Because the new plan is always gonna be flooded by nature is going to be flooded spine, very difficult to perfect anything. So always, even when you come up with the right plan for the right reason, in the right direction, you do everything right, I still see your

00:32:39--> 00:33:05

helped me find something that's closer to the perfect success rate and the perfect reasoning than what I have. Let me find something closer to Russia than what I actually have. That's why they it's a very specific drop. There's nothing like in the blog. If you go through the whole list, you will not find anything that's even close to this many, many scholars, when you go to the to the books struggle immensely trying to understand what this document is very few of them actually got the point. I couldn't

00:33:07--> 00:33:29

do any of the we have to have them in Washington, meaning why he used the Aqaba Manhattan or because he said in the beginning that I'm going in if I knew that he covered, I'm doing that tomorrow, what are you doing tomorrow? What's your plans for tomorrow, we'll make sure you ask the loss of power to help tweak your plans so that they are closer to Russia than they actually are. That they come closer to the

00:33:30--> 00:33:46

to pleasing Him and being successful. And they than they are everything we do well. You could have done better corrects everything you do well, you can always have done better. Even a perfect game, even a perfect lesson, even a perfect building, everything would have been done a bit more efficiently.

00:33:47--> 00:34:26

More effectively, quicker, everything. And that's not wrong. It's not wrong for us always to hope and to strive towards perfection. Isn't that what excellence is? Isn't that what set is as a concept and the dean, you're always trying to be there. That's why I work with Daniel, I love this job. I think it's beautiful. But I think that only few people, very few people make it. Because in order for you to make it you have to go through the process of beginning you have to have plans for the future that involve trying to please Allah subhanaw taala and be successful. If this what you're trying to do, like, involves that involves reminding yourself of Allah constantly as you're planning

00:34:26--> 00:34:46

out your future. But if you do those things, if you're making that step and you're conscious of Allah, and then you'll make this talk to y'all. I made it my plan to please you want to be successful. Please allow this plan to be better, help this plan, have a better success rate. And make sure this plan is more pleasing to you than I initially hoped it would be.

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

To grant branches that

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

we were saying to each other, this is the second. First one. Don't be superficial. I just asked. So don't waste your time talking about trivial issues that don't

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

To help your cause number two, make sure that as you're planning out your life you're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you're aware of him in your conscience God continuously and consistently asking him to partner with God to help tweak that plan so that it's more pleasing to Him and is more successful for you which is the concept of motion we try to move to the third

00:35:23--> 00:35:30

comment when are these two he can be himself me that in CD you know it was the do this

00:35:39--> 00:35:46

so the citation for is Stella din Cena right with the convene on me it is not

00:35:47--> 00:36:02

a DC name is Bella Bella 2018 See Nina which is a very specific usage means it's not it's not the common way of seeing numbers and in their language was the specific one you will learn the ready to

00:36:08--> 00:36:09

wear T one l

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

l to be he was smear.

00:36:19--> 00:36:25

Mad I mean Dooney mu li

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

What are you shriek goofy * me I had a

00:36:41--> 00:37:22

third one, just remind us at the end, in the midst of it all. But Allah subhana wa Tada is the one who knows. He's the omniscient, subhanAllah Daddy was golden, all hearing, he's all seeing everything works based on whatever he wants some kind of a data, your ability to control things is close to zero, you do your part, you serve your purpose, you push towards everything, you've got to remind yourself, it's the last panel with that at the beginning. It's Allah subhanaw taala. Right now, it's going to be almost a pile of data at the end of it all. Never, ever forget that point. There's always a lot going to hit you do your part, you have to do your part is why He created you

00:37:22--> 00:37:58

the whole point is that you do your part, you see what it is that needs to be done, what is it? What is that is missing? Where are you can fit, what gap you can fill, what height is not being perfected and done properly performing the way it should be. And then you go and you do it. And you spend your life because there's a very small period of time that you're here, you're here for a few years, you're only one person, find a gap and fill it for the time that you're here doing the right thing spreading inside of the university and reminding yourself that it's Allah subhanaw taala that's, that's what I didn't do. That's the whole point of this story. did not do that. Why? Because they

00:37:58--> 00:38:05

were young and it wasn't clear to them. And what what do I mean? I mean, is that they didn't believe that their effort was going to do anything.

00:38:07--> 00:38:08

There were three of them. Right?

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

Let's say there's three just for the

00:38:13--> 00:38:16

purpose of the argument. Three guys, what are the three teenagers going to do?

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

What the three teenagers do

00:38:20--> 00:38:32

any of you to bring three teenagers from any part of the world? Anywhere? What if they came together and decided to do something? What is extended? What they're gonna do? Yeah, I'm not sure I'm sure they can do a lot

00:38:33--> 00:38:40

you know, teenagers shoulders Yeah, is almost limitless. Let's say you want to do something good. Want to actually spread something good. What could they do

00:38:41--> 00:38:50

for them? They said I was gonna be limited we're going to try to be limited. We can only do so much. That was the whole point of the stories is limitless.

00:38:51--> 00:38:55

Your sleep if you only use wake up, see the whole kingdom isms can because

00:38:56--> 00:39:29

the three of you talking there was Muslim because because of your effort. understand the concept. Why? Because he's Allah. That's why because your your life, like when you're weak or weak. You don't have much, just do your part. Just do your thing. Just find out your job, fulfill it, and just leave the rest. Because it's Allah subhanaw taala is not it is not up to you anyway. To begin with this now is do your part. That's why we'll be through and they stayed he can have him in that cave. That I mean, I didn't see any 300 of yours basically

00:39:31--> 00:39:52

was dead and that's why the New Year is so important. That doesn't mean that you see me it would have been 300 years but as a team city 300 of yours was dad who just signed on Yeah. And then they added nine of yours makes the whole difference. So I'm gonna do a calculation all of you have iPhones I see myself. If you don't have an iPhone, then you have something that's a calculator calculator.

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

Because here's, let me give you as well no, I haven't done that. Before everyone is

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

the first person that

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

Maybe it's been 10 years take. Now we're going to do we're gonna do a quick calculation. Now the difference between the lunar year the lunar calendar and the Gregorian when is 11 days? Roughly 11 days, right? So how many days would be the difference? If someone 100 years? How many different what difference with there being so right? So do 300 And then times that by 11. Right? Now, divide that by a Gregorian year, which is 365. Right. So, what do you end up with 39.001? Something? That's why they stayed in their case a few years

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

ago or years? was dead Lucas or anything? You have to add nine, if

00:40:48--> 00:40:48

that makes sense.

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

So, yeah, in itself, you're saying just in case you think it's

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

seen larvae?

00:40:57--> 00:41:17

We don't need these models? We don't know. We have no idea really. But this is specific. We don't know. Elsewhere. We don't know. Like, I never actually done a study on that said, I'm not sure. We'll look into it. But here, he said, 330. I didn't know why are you saying that? You're gonna say 309? Isn't that a normal human way to say

00:41:18--> 00:41:26

number 309? Doesn't number 300 of yours and then add the added nine? Why? Because if you if you thought that it wasn't it was 300 of

00:41:28--> 00:41:46

sons years. And then if you want to take your your lawyer years and standard nine years, and it's just a testament of Allah subhanaw taala, you don't think Allah knows? Don't think a lot of those down to details? Again, you don't think he knows? Or two or three or five or seven of the? He's telling you exactly how long have you slept? You're saying the little mathematical?

00:41:48--> 00:41:53

Allah Who? Say it again? Allah subhanaw taala knows that's how long these

00:41:54--> 00:42:02

are these steps are there? Yes. Like you said, I'll be I'll be editing him. Allah right Lord knows the number of them. He also knows how long they spent.

00:42:03--> 00:42:15

He knows he gave you the number we want the number. Here's the number. Here's Intuit calendars not knowing, just in case, you're wondering how long they spent, they spent 300 with 300 of this and 309 of that, so that you know exactly what he's talking about.

00:42:16--> 00:42:56

Just don't get caught up in tribulations. And never forget that Allah content is overlooking everything, overseeing everything. He knows everything. And he's, and he's there for everything, just do your part, to continue itself know who he was. What he owns, to him is own the unseen, the unseen world of the heavens, the skies of the Earth, because everything has shahada, and everything has something that is seen that you can measure that you can calculate that you can tangibly put it you can study it through science, and then there's labor. That's something that is unmeasurable, there are things that are just unmeasurable don't fall into that. There beyond it. He knows that.

00:42:58--> 00:43:03

He's dealing with that. I know, I know the scene I've showed him the exact number. And I know also leads us to

00:43:04--> 00:43:14

assume to be us men, Arabic, there's two ways for you to show that you are awed by something. If you are, if you're impressed by something, there's two ways to do it. Either you say

00:43:16--> 00:43:27

manager Mela, how beautiful use nothing to say like that merge metal. Or there's another way to do it you say edumedia V. There's two ways in their language for you to show that you're impressed by something called stealing.

00:43:29--> 00:43:53

It's how you show that you're impressed by this a man of Idaho or FLV so in this area, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is magnifying himself by using the phrase that is used in Arabic language to show that you're impressed by something so other sort of be meaning how, how ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sees everything is he all seem some kind of what a sinner and he is the old hearing.

00:43:54--> 00:44:06

No one is like, so it's good to see Fraser it's a form of speech that is based on showing that you're impressed by some Aubusson video Esna Indeed, He is the One who sees everything, and you're the one who hears everything.

00:44:07--> 00:44:43

Man, I mean, Dooney he nobody, no one. No one not the people who slept and died. Not the people who didn't believe in him. At all believe in him. No one might have been doing it without him. So hang on besides him so kinda what I've been doing here besides him. I mean when he when he is someone to stand by. is an advocate is someone who will accept your your way or someone who will stand by your cause, or will add to it or be a part of it. Not only in doing what he was doing was done by them besides a loss of power. No one has anyone to stand by. Besides a loss of

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

whether you should be hurt me I had he does not bring into his sovereignty and into his ruling Subhana wa Tada associate. There's no one with meaning you have no one else but him. And he does not bring anyone else and he's not coming with a boss. He doesn't have a group of people.

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

People are a group of individuals, they're going to work with him. It's only and you have no one else besides him

00:45:06--> 00:45:27

saying the third concept you're very, very beautiful starts by little mathematical pieces of information just so that you can strengthen remain if it's weak that you need, you shouldn't need any of this. And then remind yourself it's all him, you know, he sees it all. He hears it all. You have no one else besides him. There's no one else besides him anyway. So who is it you're looking for you're looking for when we were trying to impress

00:45:29--> 00:46:03

when we were spending your life trying to please If not him, somehow that's a waste of your time. And remind yourself that whatever you do, when you look around in the reality seems, oh, this is not going anywhere. It's impossible. You have no idea of the reality of the Muslim world, you have no idea about the reality of the world itself. Things are completely messed up to the point where it's possible to fix it, that you weren't asked to do that. Why are you doing that it's good to be in touch with reality so you can plan properly and accordingly so you can plan accordingly you need to know what's going on. But it has nothing to do with whether you're going to do your part or not.

00:46:04--> 00:46:22

Never give up hope. Why because Allah subhanaw taala might human duty even when he Why would you give up? Why would you believe that it's not going to change of course it will change just to your heart just fulfill your role. Just serve your purpose. That's all you're ever asked to do. That's the third comment of the sutra. The fourth one is shoulders the eye after we say

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

what's new, who here either you can mean kita the big one.

00:46:35--> 00:46:38

them but de la de Cali Mati.

00:46:41--> 00:46:45

Whelan, Deji them in Dooley he will

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


00:46:51--> 00:47:28

recite what is specific is talking about the citation of the Quran is not talking about the law is different. We're talking about the difference. There are two means we need to recite, recite what was revealed to you who here elago was revealed to you from the book of your Lord means lamb but theoretically, Maddie, nothing has the ability to change the concepts within his words. It's not about this is not talking about changing the actual words mean someone flipping a letter around or change, you know, you're just talking about the principles that exists within the words. So when he's telling you to recite what was revealed to you from the book of your Lord, recite it, and know

00:47:28--> 00:48:06

that the principles that are in here are unchangeable. They don't. They're not subject to circumstances, you're not subject to time or place. These are infinite. The words of Allah subhanaw taala, the wisdom that they contain the guidance within them are infinite, they are always there, they will never change it, you need to know them. So read, recite these words time and time again, until they become clear to you until you will no longer have any doubts about them. Until you notice there's no more ambiguity regarding the way you view them because they don't change there. That is what Allah subhana wa Tada has greeted, if you stand for something with the intention of pleasing

00:48:06--> 00:48:38

Him and helping others he will stand by you. He will stand by you, He will change laws for you. Your effects will be beyond your ability to imagine that will never change. That that's the law. That's the law of the world will never change never got deleted, it just will not change. You want to believe it? You don't want to believe that? Well, it's up to you that it is what it is. This is what it is. But nothing will change this ever. And once we know that, by the way it makes makes life much easier for you to live.

00:48:39--> 00:48:46

You become much more your peace of mind tosses when he said he said I do my part, and he'll take care of the rest of us.

00:48:47--> 00:49:07

I shouldn't worry about anything else. Don't waste my time. And think I just do my best. We occupy myself with finding out what where am I part of the puzzle fits in this big world and I do it and then I fulfill it. And I spread them in every direction that I can within my ability. And the results is a loss of how does business struggling line

00:49:09--> 00:49:20

and that's how you learn what to read, be read, read what was revealed to you from the book of the Lord. Nothing that he said not none of his words are changed or can be changed. They are

00:49:21--> 00:50:00

they're constantly being there. They're always looking, what entente doesn't do anything. And you will never find anyone to seek refuge in land is where you can put the user for the grave that lead is where you're sleeping. I'm not sure maybe not all of you need this but when you sleep, it's sometimes nice to have some have a wall behind you or something we can we can put your back to you just feels more comfortable when you have a solid body behind yours. You can put your put your back to just feels better right? So moved ahead is something for you to lean on. When you didn't do it and you will not

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

I find besides him supine and without anyone you can lean on. Not just lean on in the the literal meaning of course, but figuratively hear me no one else's words are reliable. But his no one else's words, nothing else besides what he said is going to be reliable for you, you may find goodness may find intellect, you may find depth and wisdom in the words and the thoughts of others, but you can't rely on anything. But Allah subhanaw taala rely on Him, you will try and you will fail, and you will come back and rely on him against God. So recite what was revealed to you from the book of glory, and understand that his words of wisdom and guidance are unchangeable, and you will not find anyone

00:50:45--> 00:51:20

else who's reliable. Besides, that makes sense at the fourth meaning, because if you accepted the first concept of being of being someone who cares for essence and substance, not super superficial ideas that don't serve anything, if you understand the second concept that you have to plan things out to please Him and be successful, and that has to be something that you're thinking about constant constantly. If you understand the third concept without Allah subhanaw taala is the All Knowing all seeing all humans, the omniscient, diligent, so there's nothing for you to be worried about. And you shouldn't be preoccupied with anything but your role in the fourth one comes easy.

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

Because you're gonna be asking after that, okay, then okay, what do I truly understand, except I'm going to be somewhat of substance, I'm going to plan it out. Do it for the sake of a lot of interesting love. What are my kind of conceptual ideas? What are my fundamental principles, alright, but

00:51:37--> 00:51:38

recyclable could be where you find

00:51:40--> 00:52:17

meaning to take some time to learn. It's not going to come easily, it's not coming immediately. Why do how do I know that because the same thing for them. They were teams, but they were teams of knowledge. I mean, they went and they learned the seeked those or they sought out those who had the, the knowledge of the book in their time, and they learned separately from different people, but they had the same ideas and then they were able to do it because they you know, Allah brought them together. But they have to learn, you have to learn you have to spend some time reading in depth understanding, but once you do, you know, gives you the news. And then you can fly wherever you

00:52:17--> 00:52:44

want, and your effect will become different. And your impact on the community will become limitless. You can do more than you ever thought you could do because even right now you're thinking I can only do whatever you need to get whatever limitations you have to yourself in your mind. Just just break that see just just break that ceiling. Just flick it, flick it away, stick them on one by one, I can't do this. I can't do that. Anyway, it's all doable. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala can do whatever he wants.

00:52:45--> 00:53:17

You can't do anything without him anyway. So why limit something that Allah subhanaw taala is going to do anyway? If he is limitless then why are you limiting your potential if you're doing it for his taken with within his will delay your shift as well? Why are you limiting yourself? Doesn't make any sense. Doesn't make any sense. But reciting his words rather understand the concepts of them not rely on anything else. And you'll be good. That's the fourth thing. We have to do the fifth it'll be a crime if you don't read it, because this brings it all together

00:53:20--> 00:53:22

will be left second i Larry.

00:53:24--> 00:53:27

Bill or the tea? Well, I see.

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

Uri do now.

00:53:39--> 00:53:46

What do I Enoch? I do read Uzi, that dunya.

00:53:53--> 00:53:56

One, two L's and now

00:53:58--> 00:53:59

the cleaner

00:54:06--> 00:54:12

what data was work and who or not

00:54:17--> 00:54:21

the fight the fifth. Just constantly you're going to need

00:54:24--> 00:54:25

what's good enough saying

00:54:26--> 00:54:34

the word sober at the beginning of it kind of tells you that it's not going to be easy. You don't be patient. Of course if you're low, I probably

00:54:38--> 00:54:40

was meaning

00:54:41--> 00:55:00

to fill yourself with patients and hold yourself down the perseverance to do something because it wasn't good enough second, I needed to be patient and you to make yourself patient for something. So what is it that he wants you to make yourself patient for and stick to it and not give up completely? Because it'd be hard obviously if it was gonna be easy. We're not telling you to be

00:55:00--> 00:55:34

Somebody would use that word he would say use perseverance, because Sagar actually means perseverance. Fill yourself with perseverance so you can do this. If it's easy I don't need to do that I don't need to tell you. Oh Allah how you do you'd be very strong tonight because this you know we're going to be playing video games until three o'clock so I need to be strong be perseverance and you'll be like okay you know it's it's fun it doesn't matter the papers again for other things, you know we're going to be difficult and heavy was good enough second, my Lavina had her own own bone in the companionship and in the presence of those who call on their Lord because of

00:55:34--> 00:56:11

identity when she in the mornings and the nights you really do and Elijah who as they seek the satisfaction of himself are they seeking seeking his space now seeking your space sounds really weird in English because it doesn't that's literal translation doesn't make any sense. But you really want to get your own Arabic means that that you want you're doing it displeased him so you can enjoy seeing his face he will not be honest. That's the Constitution. Because even in Arabic before Islam, you would never say that. And we want you I want your face. What do you like? What was wrong with you? Like no, it's my concept later on Islam became strong because Allah subhanaw taala

00:56:11--> 00:56:22

said that the thing that you will enjoy Joy most the reward you will enjoy most and Jana will be looking at him. So the concept of beauty became very strong. And we don't find it weird with Arabic anymore. But

00:56:24--> 00:56:25

the ISA

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

be perseverant. And stick by those who call upon their Lord and the mornings and the evenings hoping and wanting and seeking is satisfaction CDC is award. Why? Because often they're not the coolest.

00:56:44--> 00:56:45

And they're not the funnest either.

00:56:46--> 00:57:24

Often, the people like that aren't that fun to be with? The other guys are way more fun. They're cooler, you enjoy their company more. Right? But the guy who was more Muslim, the girls was more what does he mean? She's not as fun. He's not as enjoyable. So when you end up cooking up the perseverance, he's telling you, I know. It's boring. So be persevere and stick to them anyway. Do not leave the companionship of people who think like that. People who are like minded, like you will like that as well. If you're someone who is calling upon his Lord in the morning in the evening, you're praying budget and you're praying, and you want to you're seeking His satisfaction and his

00:57:24--> 00:57:43

pleasures. I know it's hard to see him Aren't you doing that? Well then stick to people who are like minded. That's how I did it. The only reason that these couple of guys made a difference is because there was a couple of them. Because it wasn't one person even was one person and be telling you this story of one guy. There's actually a story of one guy his name was movement he has seen and you know what happened to him?

00:57:45--> 00:57:49

Go study and see what happened to the one guy we were doing on his own what happened to him?

00:57:50--> 00:57:53

It's a group groups with a strong

00:57:54--> 00:58:11

community societies, groups of people make strength. How are we going to do that? Stick by those perseveringly impatiently stick by those who are like minded, who are like you who call on their Lord every day, morning and evening and seek His pleasure to see this as well.

00:58:12--> 00:58:54

We're not done yet. What is actually what time do I Enoch on whom and make sure your eyes don't move away from them. I wasn't saying see your eyesight. Look at do not look anywhere else in don't even take a sneak peek on what the other guys are going to do. Don't even do that. Just stick to this. You found someone you were lucky enough to find someone who loves Allah subhanaw taala as much as you do, who wants to do it as much as you do? Who will help you and your religion more than you actually have? You are lucky enough to find someone like that to look anywhere else you would be insane to do it, stick to them. Glue yourself patiently just stick don't go anywhere. You're so

00:58:54--> 00:59:31

lucky. Because you could have could have so hard to find. Well, it's a rare currency today. But it doesn't have to be that something doesn't have to be a rare occurrence it can become something more how if just the people were like that came together and stuck together as top fighting long time and stop disagreeing on stupid trivial superficial issues that don't mean anything and actually came together and stuck together what to add to it that the phrase in the Quran is beautiful. Don't let your eyesight go No Don't Don't don't look just look look at the look at them. Of course this is literal it's not bigger if you're going to stare awkwardly at the person here but the idea here is

00:59:31--> 01:00:00

we're figure two we don't because when we look is they say that the grass is always greener on the other side right? So don't even look at this is good right this guy is like he was like minded like you he's he has the same ambitions that you do and he fears along wants to be just like you do. Don't look there. Don't go Don't do this. Don't don't even give the shape on Yeah, I need a margin to work and don't give them anything. Don't do that either. I'm not going to redo zine and then hieratic dunya wanting the door

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

Humans have this life of this of this low life of higher to dunya wanting the joy that is superficial

01:00:07--> 01:00:44

temporary joys momentary highs of this low life don't go don't do that. Don't look at others that will offer you that and will bring you all the fun and the games and adventures and none of not saying that you have to live a boring live I don't want this meant misses. You can be with those who are like minded who are Muslims and enjoy every moment of your day. And be adventurous and do but don't. The haram thing I'm just saying I'm saying don't look at how long part of it. Don't leave them because they're just not up to your there are no friends in the world, we're going to be perfect. Every friend you have and will have is going to be flooded. extremely fun. Why? Because you

01:00:44--> 01:01:05

are as well. We all learn there's no such thing as a perfect friend. But if you find someone was like minded, who loves Allah, Allah will bring you closer to Him and allow you to and wants to work with you and pleasing Him. Then hold on and focus and don't look for as he had to do in order for anything else. Any adornment of this low like don't look at

01:01:08--> 01:01:21

the third one, what not to do even to make it even clearer and do not follow or the or be like or be friends doTERRA has aura has a lot of different meanings. Could be don't obey don't follow. Don't be friend, don't spend time man fell now

01:01:23--> 01:01:31

and don't obey or follow or be around or be like the ones whom we have made their hearts indifferent towards our immigrants.

01:01:33--> 01:01:36

The difference? oblivions just plain not caring.

01:01:39--> 01:02:17

This is of course, I'm an expert of dealing with that because I deal with youth. It's very hard to get young people to care. It's hard. Just hard. It really is. It's a difficult thing. Youth equals a certain level of indifference where I just I just don't care. Why because you're young. Because it's so early still in life and you just don't feel there's a responsibility you don't care. People are older of trying things out of seeing things in the world. They know you have you can't be in different. scorable you have to care when they choose what they care about. For us. It's hard. That's why health was so unique. They were young, but they were not that no offense, they were on

01:02:17--> 01:02:55

different to care. Do not be like Do not be friend, do not be friend, the ones whose wounds hearts have become a different from the remnants of Do not waste time with them. Maybe help them if you can bring them to them. But do not waste your time. Do not let Don't be like don't obeyed. Don't follow them in their footsteps. Don't be that don't be that. Mental Felder culpa who their heart has been in a state of indifference. I'm thinking about their own civil law, whatever. And this person has followed their desires. He's followed their following they do what they want to do, they please they feel like what makes them happy, doesn't matter, right? Wrong.

01:02:57--> 01:03:08

Button, how you have shown these concepts that don't exist. It's just whatever makes me feel good about our follow their dreams and their desires, what kind of move and their matter is going to be

01:03:10--> 01:03:14

followed. So ever since the Messiah, you know.

01:03:15--> 01:03:51

So if you cut the rope in Arabic as a font, right, because everything, all the little things, beads were in proper place now are scattered in a way where you cannot bring them back. And there's no there's no organization for them. And they're lost basically. So do not follow the person whose heart isn't in a state of indifference from their opposite the loss of God is following their desires and that they're matter at the end of their life. elodea is going to be full time to be scattered. They're scattered people in this life, and they will have it's going to be a scattered issue. Maybe there's no there's no structure, there's no focus, there's no essence, there's no

01:03:51--> 01:04:05

substance, and there's no reward at the end, because it's all completely lost. Because there's nothing tiny though. Everybody told you that. When you have money, wealth and knowledge, it doesn't mean anything. It was just an idea. Without the idea that idea ties, everything that

01:04:06--> 01:04:18

keeps everything together, you lose the idea for lost. You could be very knowledgeable and be very famous and wealthy and strong as networking skills and highest social

01:04:20--> 01:04:23

status amongst people without the idea

01:04:24--> 01:04:24


01:04:26--> 01:04:30

the fifth concept in the commentary,

01:04:31--> 01:04:59

I adapted that we'll see you next time. We'll be What did you supposed to do? Okay, what are you gonna do that you accepted all that? Okay, this is what we want to say. Say this now. Now teach this if you want to be a fifth concept. It's so important. The province the lesson MHMR I've said it many, many times and the Hadith are so there are so sufficient, some of them I mean, some of them are even with your ledger, where I used to say multiple Yorkshireman multiple nine and I have the person who will again will be standing beside him the person whom he loved, meaning his best friend and other

01:05:00--> 01:05:31

I need to know who ideas are leading into every human being has the religion of his best friend, but younger 100 will not you'll find him to take them up. Who is that? Who is it that you chose to be your best friend? He made, you know, I must have his Christian. No, you guys. If he's your best friend, you're the same. You may say something else, but it's not. It's not deep inside. It's all the same. Because that's how life works. You have to look for people who are like minded, then you have to hold on to them. You have to make sure you don't get distracted by anyone else. By any do anything, anything that is of a low life that is adornments of this was not important. You have to

01:05:31--> 01:05:37

make sure you don't follow those who are indifferent towards Allah subhanaw taala already follow the organs and those

01:05:39--> 01:05:42

with our matter is going to be scattered and useless and worthless.

01:05:43--> 01:06:19

The fifth concept of this commentary, friendships, I can't emphasize the importance of friendships, groups, look for people who agree with you on the concepts of pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada, I'm doing something with you. Look for them, and hold on. And make sure you never leave them and make sure that you build something because that is so important. It's so precious, just so precious. Probably the most precious things you will find in your life, who's a good friend, someone who can people who can depend upon people that will bring you closer to Allah Subhan Allah God.

01:06:20--> 01:06:21

I thought in that

01:06:22--> 01:06:23

moment, Allah Allah, Allah.

01:06:26--> 01:06:49

Allah, Allah, Allah, him about who the person who takes you to Allah subhanaw taala I was born, what he says, and what he does, like the way he lives, the way this person lives is bringing it closer to Allah subhanaw taala you understand how important that is to find someone like that. The prophets are nice, and they do not need a friend during those times. But he left for Medina did not have a friend with him. So I said, I'm gonna end this will be the story of the last

01:06:52--> 01:06:53

friend, this will be for us now.

01:06:55--> 01:07:07

Now this guy accepted assembly, meaning I want to try to get up early on. And he was the guy who wasn't interested. But on top of kept on communicating with him sending letters sending messages.

01:07:09--> 01:07:10

And we'll be

01:07:11--> 01:07:15

in the later on after the topic, some of the population will look at that. So

01:07:18--> 01:07:22

he heard it, he always asked about him. He's always you know, seeing what's his like, what was he doing?

01:07:24--> 01:07:34

He was as he finds out that this guy has kind of lost his focus and now he's going in his drinking and he's doing his own thing. He's, he's lost. So he takes it and people tell them that

01:07:36--> 01:07:45

they're angry saying you should bring him here. And you should make an example of someone knows me with a friend or currently a friend of me doing this as very

01:07:46--> 01:07:54

disrespectful. So he said, Okay, give me a paper. So they give up paper. I read something down on it. And he's closes it makes it a letter like seals didn't just send it to them.

01:07:55--> 01:08:01

So he sent it to the man. He opened. He's sitting down, he's drinking, he's doing his thing. He opens it. He reads

01:08:02--> 01:08:04

Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim Allah I

01:08:06--> 01:08:26

mean, apart from Isla Fudan Tuesday in the in the medulla, who, I praise Allah, in my life and in yours, God is them the one who forgives sins whereby we are told, and the One Who accepts repentance should add the one who was extreme in his punishment

01:08:30--> 01:08:46

and does not read these words and put it down. And then he read them again. They read them again. And he demanded some storage but I'm gonna get on my horse and I read them towards Medina. And he was living in Europe and he went to Medina and he said, I read them like a million times the whole time and how Muhammad Allah you know,

01:08:48--> 01:09:10

what are we killed? We should talk and he came to him so Tommy started to cry, and he hugged him and he thanked him and he made repentance and it almost looked up churches people to people but how could a fuss not all be applied equal? This is how you're supposed to treat your your brothers let that go on my own Alicia if you don't talk to please don't help chiffon to take away your brother's warning. They're already gone. So I'm gonna look

01:09:11--> 01:09:12

at that.
