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

salatu salam, ala,

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

many,

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

many brothers and sisters in Islam, I'd like to begin by first apologizing. And apologies, I just handed gropey about an hour ago. So if I sound a bit higher than a scene with jet lag, it's probably because I have. So please forgive me if, if I don't sign up, as I showed in Sharla. One of the most beautiful things in our religion, among the most invigorating things in our religion is that

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

everybody would return home alone.

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

And he would,

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

he would go on some trip, and then he would return to

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

Oxford, he would go to the masjid.

00:01:15--> 00:01:28

And he will go to regardless, we will go for the bigotry, and then we would go home. And it shows how the mustard is the focal point of the Muslim community. Irrespective of

00:01:29--> 00:01:38

who we are, where we come from, we come to the masjid and this is the focal point. And so likewise, even though I come from a very long journey, and

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

it is so beautiful,

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

to see so many beautiful faces, and all.

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

The city that I come from in the UK,

00:01:52--> 00:02:01

like it was weeks ago, but it's only yesterday. And again production in a university. And there were a lot of students that I was seeing about the universality of

00:02:03--> 00:02:11

universal miniatures. And now we have a low unemployment upon an approach that is far stronger than the

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

first one within business first.

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

And that is

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

the link.

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

And so I will say to those brothers and sisters,

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

that tomorrow, I will travel to Edmonton,

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

Canada many times, but this is my first time in Edmonton.

00:02:45--> 00:02:45

Never been there.

00:02:48--> 00:02:48

I've never been,

00:02:50--> 00:02:57

I know that. I will find brothers and sisters in my religion. People don't know.

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

me now because I'm related to them, not because they will be money while the money not because there's some favor over them over me simply because of that.

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

And that is something which is truly unique and truly amazing the variable religion. And so I said at the beginning of this lecture, that I looking for the sake of time, that a person can come from 1000s of miles away. And he can come and travel for hours and hours and come to a part of a country that has never come to some remote corner of Canada.

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

And this is something which you find that everywhere you go just to kind of dive

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

into winning, or being too

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

many, many, many of you have traveled to many of the cities

00:04:00--> 00:04:06

and want to go to other countries. And if you were to come to the UK or one of the cities that you go to

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

in the UK, but you will find

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

a question.

00:04:16--> 00:04:22

someone's house, rented shop, office when they come in at a meet.

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

That is something which is amazing. And

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

we often neglect that we don't really appreciate because often we forget

00:04:35--> 00:04:43

and it's only when you travel. When you come into community like this, that it's an easy that you appreciate

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

and remember that the presence of a lot of great the fact that you have these 250 miles and a beautiful

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

ambush

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

This is a

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

window

00:05:05--> 00:05:10

into Medina, even before he took his own house, he came and he started to build.

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

And you already have

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

so little on the left

00:05:34--> 00:05:49

something which I just wanted to say, as one means your community, I would like to see returned, I appreciate this. And that this is something that we have, as a result of the office that we have in our village. Moving on to the topic of today's lecture

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

promises this will be a very short lecture

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

is

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

just literally an hour or so.

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

And we came from the airport to downtown Edmonton.

00:06:14--> 00:06:19

numbers on the streets and you can be amazed, but it was 100. And something Street. And

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

this is a weird road. In the UK, if you wanted to go one place like this,

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

we'd have

00:06:36--> 00:06:36

we wouldn't

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

we just gradually have the final

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

outcome. in Edmonton, you have a

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

seat

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

is the

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

is the total representative of your of your city.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

Essentially, there must be some, some wisdom behind this.

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

So maybe we need a civil engineer to go to the snow. I don't know what it is. But it was designed for road riders. But this was my mind. And I said,

00:07:20--> 00:07:26

because we deal with the same thing, a road that goes up and down

00:07:28--> 00:07:36

the road is your life. Life is full of standards, how easy it would be for a road to get up.

00:07:40--> 00:07:51

Whatever your goal and objective is, you want to get married, you want to get a university degree, you want to find a job, whatever your goal is, it will be so nice. And if

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

you just want to leave a job until you arrive to this destination.

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

It would be nice, but

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

reality is the role

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

of a dog.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

And so in order to drive on this road, that you have a unique experience

00:08:17--> 00:08:24

and is how we record because it doesn't have to navigate to the seat in front of you.

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

And it would be a very uncomfortable, very uncomfortable journey if someone just took that.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

And they just

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

so you need to know how to navigate through these bubbles. And then you

00:08:40--> 00:08:40

know,

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

you have a goal. You have objectives

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

for the

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

future for the children.

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

peace and serenity ever wants to come closer to the law

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

and so on. But life isn't so simple.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

And whatever goal you have.

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

And the problem is that the vast majority of us when it comes to the ups and downs of life, we're like

00:09:18--> 00:09:29

amateurs, we just sit next to them and we go over us we take our foot off the pedal and we go back down. So with amateurs

00:09:34--> 00:09:43

is he tells us how to drive our car, the car. He tells us how to navigate through these books. This

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

is the most amazing thing.

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

One of the most amazing and beautiful things

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

is white environments for us.

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

You will

00:10:03--> 00:10:12

hear certain parts of the format over and above others. So has a special place even in

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

a special place in

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

the clubs.

00:10:21--> 00:10:27

And also for those passages and verses and songs that have a special place is sort of

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

the

00:10:31--> 00:10:31

whosoever

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

will be given a life from that point, until the best

00:10:39--> 00:10:39

of luck.

00:10:41--> 00:10:59

Whosoever memorizes the first 10 persons of circle, they will be saved in the tribal agenda over and over again, emphasis to cited at least once to me, the soul, and the soul is in the middle of it is the middle.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

So, the question would mean, we are

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

encouraged to resign? And

00:11:08--> 00:11:15

the question is always Why, what's the benefit? What's the point? Why is so?

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

To give you a very summarized version, a very summarized answer, it's because

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

it tells you how to drive the car

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

is the first sort of

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

for the best.

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

Because the

00:11:45--> 00:11:55

companions needed kindness, they needed to know how to overcome the clouds of the bugs that they would face. And no one faced a more bumpy road

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

with courage with his own family with

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

he and his family and his

00:12:07--> 00:12:08

fortune, and

00:12:09--> 00:12:14

all of these very different books that they have to navigate. And so how

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

to be

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

in the test of life,

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

blank

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

test when you don't know the answers, when in fact, when you don't know what you mean by

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

the opposite to the test.

00:12:40--> 00:12:54

Because when you go to school, or when you have a job, when you give an adjuster an exam, you don't know the answers. It's technically from, you know, the subject to give you the material, you must revise in order to get those exam results.

00:12:57--> 00:13:02

You see the exact answer, the acceptance, if you want to

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

know what to do.

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

So, by

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

giving you an insight, as to how to overcome the trials of life,

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

seeking external

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

types when it comes to

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

the face, which are

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

internal

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

problems,

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

that you have a disease that you come to see, for example, a person has problems with things.

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

He's

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

speaking about.

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

The problems that he will face to light, when you go out when you work, when you go and when you put in a lot.

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

I will give you one example of this. Let us let us just take the first verse,

00:14:13--> 00:14:14

over only verse

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

allows

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

us

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

to to allow the one who wrote

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

the book, and he did not make

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

meaning

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

to the property.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

And the book is a book which is free.

00:14:41--> 00:14:46

There's no mistakes, no contradictions, no premises, it is a book of

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

confusion.

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

It is one verse, the beginning verse of the soul song

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

how many people know

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

In this verse, how is the name of Omar mentioned?

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

The name of Allah

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

is essentially investment.

00:15:19--> 00:15:19

Most

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

it is mentioned

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

in this verse, the rest of the syrup is

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

indirectly making child's throat.

00:15:37--> 00:15:44

handful of times, but a lot of requests indirectly, many, many more times.

00:15:46--> 00:15:50

So in First of all, it is only mentioned once,

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

implicitly or explicitly.

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

And we're going to get

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

555 times a lot.

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

In one words, just in one verse, and the

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

old ways is to

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

review an outfit when a person does an action you need, it needs to be

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

an action verb, then someone who performs

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

so he is the one who can build

00:16:38--> 00:16:43

upon this. He referred to Allah, he said,

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

and he did it

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

five times, lovely first result in one place. And the question is why?

00:16:56--> 00:17:00

Many times. And there are many reasons for this,

00:17:04--> 00:17:13

to go into so much detail, but one of those reasons is to simply show the power and the care and attention of us.

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

For those of the projects and for

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

the

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

show

00:17:27--> 00:17:38

the commandments of love, and when it comes to the troubles of writing, they follow the methodology of the law, the law, explicitly and implicitly, in ways that they can see.

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

That they will never know about. And this is why I

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

mentioned this, and you only have to look at the stories.

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

You have to look at the stories of the many prophets of Allah and the storyteller prophets on

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

how many times was

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

explicit explicitly

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

in the back, when they would

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

have an alarm system, yes, the explicit how

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

do

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

you how do you know?

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

So that they wouldn't go in disarray?

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

So

00:18:26--> 00:18:32

existing and interesting when it comes to the books of life, when it comes to this hope that

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

if a person follows the methodology, that is the

00:18:40--> 00:18:46

explicitly and implicitly and that's just one of the benefits that we gain from the first verse

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

and the 110 verses in this.

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

So when we look at this,

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

but the question is about the title of the question is how to overcome the trauma, and

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

in very beautiful ways, using the examples of the stories that I mentioned.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

Instead, the simple story

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

over and over again. But the truth is, the four major stories

00:19:27--> 00:19:37

are unique to this world. They are not mentioned anywhere else in the story of the people that key and the story of the man with the two bathrooms and the story.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

And the story of them for being unique

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

is made up anywhere else. Again, to show and emphasize how strongly it is for us not only to lead the store,

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

but to understand and to prove to be agile

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

I want to conclude by mentioning just one final rule. And that is sort of

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

some of the signs of human era, we know that

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

there will be certain signs that will come up on the

00:20:17--> 00:20:17

coming

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

from a monster is

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

this group of people known as

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

mentioned towards the end

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

spoke about safety.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

He didn't mention that he

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

forgot that he said that it will save you from the job, but the job is not mentioned in this book.

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

So, what is that

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

the sort of the job.

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

And again, the reason will always come back to the main theme.

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

Because the direct link between the source and the job, but it is

00:21:18--> 00:21:23

it is not mentioned in the bus is not the city, but what is in

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

front

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

of the province.

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

So many important

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

when it comes to

00:21:38--> 00:21:46

commands, that we cite a certain sort of way that we never want to sort of repeated every so often it is

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

that they go back and they learn that portion of

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

Remember, the Lord has given you the answer to your exam. That is such a word means to solve those two problems, a one is giving you the answer.

00:22:03--> 00:22:15

Or at least maybe try this maybe do this award has given you black and white. This is what you need to do in order to be sufficient in order to achieve

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

peace and stability and stability.

00:22:20--> 00:22:23

But the only thing is the universe

00:22:24--> 00:22:29

in TGC, and the wind, that knowledge allows you

00:22:31--> 00:22:34

to go and study, just like if we had an example of someone

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

that will come tomorrow

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

on the paper tomorrow. And these are the answers to those

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

which go

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

and learn those answers and memorize them so that they can have

00:22:53--> 00:23:03

exactly the same, giving you the questions giving you the answer. But it's amazing. And it's a sign of our state that we know.

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

We don't know.

00:23:07--> 00:23:15

But we're really, really happy to let things go along. So when your brothers and sisters is when it comes to that

00:23:17--> 00:23:17

when you try to

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

remember the name of the company,

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

you will know.

00:23:24--> 00:23:29

But when you try to know that this is how it might

00:23:32--> 00:23:36

mean it doesn't mean that that must be depressing for you that it must be so

00:23:39--> 00:23:42

problems and calamities and difficulties.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

Students no matter how

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

it is in comparison to the difficulties of the problems.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

They face
