And why the Blue Devil and Salim the freed slave of FIFA, and who the feminine yeah man and I would use them to spread the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This incident is something that you will find commonly mentioned in the Quran and the summer in the statements of the scholars, the issue of what our hopes and dreams are, because it is something ingrained and built in within each and every single one of us. It is part of human nature. We all have hopes, and we all wish and we all dream,
it is part of what makes us human. Even our younger brothers and sisters who are present here today. Even they have hopes and wishes. their wishes may be to get a new toy, or to meet a friend or to do something like that, but it's still a dream and a wish that they have. And as we mature and as we grow older, and as we progress in life, those dreams and those wishes and those hopes they also continue to evolve the Quran and the Sunnah when it speaks about these issues, it tells us there are two types of hopes two types of dreams and wishes that people have those types of dreams and wishes that a person has, which will bring them closer to Allah subhana wa tada and those types of dreams
and wishes which are false and hopeless. Don't bring really any benefit later in this life for the next I will Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is part of our human nature, to hope and to wish he said some love while he was seldom, Locanda live in the world, the main non Letterman mithila

Me Adam in the Torah. If the child of Adam was to have a valley of date palm trees, and in the other wedding of the Hades, a valley of wealth of money, he would wish and hope for a second value, and then he would wish for third Valley and he would wish until he had many such values and nothing will satisfy the child of Adam except the dust or the dirt of the ground.
Meaning death, nothing will satisfy us. It is part of our human nature, to wish and to hope. But there is a difference in our wishes and hopes. There is a difference in the hopes and the dreams and the wishes of those people who understand that it is something that they can use to bring them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. It is something that they can use to aspire to be ambitious to achieve in this life, that those things don't only benefit them in this life, but will benefit them in the next life as well. It is said that a number of the companions, four of them one sitting in the hedgerow of is married by the Kaaba, that semi circle that's just outside of the structure of
the Kaaba in Mecca. And those four Abdullah zubayr Mousavi, Mousavi, Mousavi and Abdullah Rama, and they were talking to one another and they were speaking of their dreams and their wishes and their hopes. So as far as the lightness debate, he said, As for me, I wish to be the halifa one day and lucid lucid. He said, As for me, I wish to be a governor. And oh boy, blue Bay said As for me, I wish that I would be a scholar that people would come to and take knowledge from that I would gather the knowledge of Islam. And as for Abdullah, Norma rhodiola Juan Houma, he said, As for me, I wish and I hope for the last forgiveness. The narrator who's narrating this, he says that I saw that
Abdullah musubi would one day become the halifa and mustard musubi would one day become the governor of Iraq. And as for avoid musubi he came became from the greatest scholars of his time, that people would travel to far more corners of the world to seek knowledge with him. And as for him to live no more than I hope, and I wish that Alonso was a grandson his wish and forgives him. The Companions would do this often they would sit and he would speak about their dreams and their ambitions because he would inspire one another. But they were stepping stones to bring them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada.
I'm not even Abdul Aziz Rahim Allah tala, the great scholar of Islam, the famous halifa. He used to say in nearly enough Cinta waka, I have a soul that craves meaning every time I reach my ambition and goal, I have a further goal. He says that I wish that I would be a governor of an alliance which are granted to me I wish that I would attain the level and now that today I am the halifa I wish for something greater and that is a lost gender and lost paradise. They will use it as stepping stones to bring them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that our wishes, our hopes, our desires, that sometimes remain within the recesses of
our hearts, they are extremely powerful, even if you never speak about them, even if you never enunciate them or verbalize them or discuss them. They are powerful, because they emanate from the most powerful organ in the human body. And that is our hearts. That's why they continued our ambitions and our desires. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that termina stick fit for him. That was our gel. If one of you wishes and hopes they let him do so in a plentiful way, do so a lot, because you only asked from a large village and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is equating it to a form of your wishes and your hopes you're asking from a large village and so have
many hopes and wishes. But those hopes and wishes are only beneficial, as the Prophet told us a long while he will sell them when they are sincere. When it's something that is good, when you actually want to attain something that will benefit you. The Prophet told us in a long while he was selling them in the Hadith that is collecting the telemovie in the madonia, the orbera tnfr there are only four types of people in this world. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described those four types of people and then gave each one of them a grading. He said, As for the first one, it's a person that a large division gives to them. knowledge of the religion and wealth of the dunya has
given them the best of both worlds. And this person because they know how to use them intentions and CLE they know how to please Allah come closer to Allah, they use their wealth in ways that are pleasing to Allah. they fulfill the rights of Allah and the rights of the poor and the rights of their family, and so on and so forth. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for who will be off by this man as in this type of person, is the best of all people. And then he spoke about the second category, a person who has been given knowledge, but no one. They have their religion, they understand their religion, but a large religion didn't open up for them. The dunya doesn't give them
mouth and money, but they understand the importance of those hopes and desires and those wishes and dreams that emanate from a sincere heart. So he says the Prophet sets on Allah while he will send them the second person. He says that over law, if I had wealth, like the first 100, then I too would spend it as he spends it. I too, would use it in ways that are pleasing to our law. So the profit sets on a low hourly will send them giving the second category aggressive.
For whoever beanie Yeti, for a juror who Mesaba This person will be rewarded according to his intention, and he will be equal in reward to the first. The second person didn't spend a penny doesn't have any money, doesn't have any wealth didn't give charity didn't bring families closer together didn't do anything with his mouth, because he doesn't have very much of it. But despite that he has dreams and hopes, and they are sincere on a large scale, which allows the sincerity and the framed and used in such a way that will please Allah subhanho wa tada and a large village a lot of His grace and His mercy, he gives this person an equal reward to the first, the third person who
said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a person who's been given wealth of the dunya, but doesn't have knowledge of the religion. They have wealth and they have money, they have the means and the resources. And because of that the two have dreams and wishes, but they don't know how to use them in a way that is pleasing to Allah. So the Prophet sets on a lot while he was sent him this person uses their wealth in ways that are displeasing to Allah. they incur a lot of anger. They split their families because they're disputing over their wealth and their land and their property. And all of these other issues that was sometimes breeds within families and communities. The Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam grading this individual, for who will be the filmin as in, this is the worst of all people. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about that fourth and final category. A man who has neither this nor that no knowledge of the religion, no loss of the dunya doesn't have anything Miskin but they still this person despite having nothing still has a heart that dreams and wishes and hopes. But because they don't understand how to use those hopes in ways that are pleasing to Allah, their aspirations, their ambitions, only go to the third category. Oh well life I had what I would spend it like that third person, I would use it spending it following my desires and doing
evil and haram and so on. This is their ambition. This is what they wish and hope for. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Filipina Yeti, for wisdom masala, this person will also be held to account for his intention, and he will be equally in evil and in sin to the third category. That is the nature of how powerful our intentions are, how powerful our dreams are, our hopes and our ambitions and I will wishes it's not something to be trifled with. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also told us that from the etiquettes of our wishes and hopes, is that we have to be willing to take action, have to be willing to work for them. It's not enough just to
hope. It's not enough just to have those wishes and those desires, but you also need to be willing to put in the effort and the time and the work. He said sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith. And so
I'll tell you, Suman, Dan and EFSA were Amina Lima, Baghdad, Mount ologies woman at the end of Sahar Waterman, Allah, the smart, intelligent person, he said, is the one who prepares himself and works for that which will come after death. They use their life with all of their ambitions, one of their desires and hopes. And there's nothing wrong with hoping and desiring for wishing for a good career, a good job, a lot of money, a nice house, a nice car, all of those things that all of us have children, family and everything else, nothing wrong with it. But it's done in such a way the profit sets on a lot while he was selling them, that he's always focused on the next life. How do I use my
wealth, my career, my family in ways that are pleasing to Allah? How can I use them in such a way that will bring me closer to Allah, this is the smart individual. They use their wishes and their hopes in ways that will benefit them in the next life as well. While urges and the one who doesn't produce anything, doesn't achieve anything, is the one who simply follows his desires, what Amanda and Allah and all he does is hopes and wishes from Allah wishes are a phone's wishes that are futile wishes that are insincere or if they're sincere, they're evil in their nature, and they're Haram. And this is the playground of shavon. shavon comes to us and he makes us wish for things that are
not real, makes us hope for things that don't benefit us, makes us dream and we spend so much time dreaming that sometimes months and years passed by and we're still stuck in that wishing phase. This is the playground of shavon and Eliza was on warned us against us in the Quran. And he said, Well, me You're definitely the shavonda William in June in LA for the hasura husana Medina, URI to whom a human name woman Machito Illa hora, and whosoever take shape berners Lee as a protector and a helper besides Allah, then indeed they have suffered the greatest of loss, because all he does is URI to whom a human name. He gives them false promises. And he makes them have wishful thoughts. So they do
wishful thoughts, false promises. And then Allah says one more year Ito Houma, shavon la hora, and the hopes and the wishes and the promise
have been nothing except deception. Our Prophet told us a lot while he was synonym, that our thoughts, our desires, our wishes are extremely powerful, to be careful what you wish for. Sometimes, in the spur of the moment in a moment of anger in a moment of being upset or something else being sad, we wish for things and because of their sincerity and because of how powerful they are, because it's a form of, sometimes they are responded to and accepted by Allah. Be careful. The Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said some alone while he was selling them, let them know. Let him know you
don't wish to meet the enemy. don't wish that's not something that you should hope for, because it may come true. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the other Hadith lanterman Nanda Docomo motorman, Doron cassava, for encanta, la Buddha Fairyland full yaku, alum, uni mechanical higher to hero Lee, whatever funny is a Canton Fair to Halo Lee, none of you should wish for death, none of you should hope for death because of some calamity that has befallen you. But if you find yourself in that situation, and it's difficult, then simply say, Oh Allah, give me life, so long as life is good for me, and what me death when death is better for me, don't wish for those things that
are evil, because sometimes that wish and that hope is enough and a larger vision to be granted to you. It is extremely powerful, and to show how powerful it is to show how ingrained we are as humans with our wishes, and our hopes and our desires. Then the Quran and the Sunnah tell us that even the deceased even the dead have hopes and wishes. Even once we pass from this realm, and we enter the next realm and we're dead our souls leave our bodies, our souls continue to wish and hope that's how powerful this issue is. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hoodies Oh sorry, the hoodie rhodiola one put it in session Buhari. He said either janaza Fatima harijan wala Anna team when
candidates on the ballot but the money got the money, when can I play the sada Katya de la? buena Bihar? Yes Moroso to hakushi in San Paolo, semi hollow syrup. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when the funeral procession is laid, when the body the coffin is laid, and then men come to lift the coffin on to their shoulders, the deceased the soul, if it was righteous, it will say, hasten with me hasten with me. It wishes and in hopes that it will have a quick burial, that it will enter into the grave quickly because it hopes for good from a larger agenda. And if it is not righteous, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if it is not a righteous soul, then it says Well
to me, where are they taking me? This is what it says and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is shrieking and screaming is heard by every single creation except for mankind and womankind to hear it they would fall unconscious, even the dead have hopes and desires. In the long Hadith in Bukhari of Albarado algebra, viola one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to us detail, a detailed explanation of what takes place in the Bri when each and every single one of us will be questioned by the angels that will come to our dreams. And there will be questions that either we will be able to answer by the mercy of Allah azza wa jal by him making a steadfast Oh, we won't be
able to. Towards the end of the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, he mentioned the wishes of the deceased. As for the righteous person, who's in the grave, and they've answered their questions, and you see how expansive and how wide the grave becomes an alarmist religion opens to them a window from the windows of Paradise, and they take from its blessings and its beauty and its radiance, this person at the end the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam their wishes are of the opinion Tsar, O Allah established our our law, let the Day of Judgment Come quickly, because they know that what Allah has prepared for them in the next life is far greater and better than what they
already have in their graves. And as for the other person who isn't righteous, the person who wasn't able to answer those questions in the green, the one whose grave is restricted, so much so that it questions their body into itself, and they have a window from the windows of Hellfire open for them with all of its evil, and all of its film, and all of its torment and punishment. This person at the end also has additional, and his wishes Nabila to promesa over law, nevertheless our be established, never let the Day of Judgment become even the dead have hopes and desires. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once passed by I agree, and he said to his companions, when Sahib will have the
power, who is the person in this grave? So the companions told him it is so and so. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I don't care attorney, I have them in battiato. For this man to come back and pray to quick short recurrence, it is more beloved to him than the remain
The lifespan of the remainder of this wound with all of its years and decades and centuries to come to workers that he can pray is more beloved than everything else. And that is when a large soldier tells us that from the wishes of the dead is that they will be able to come back to do more actions to make up their prayers to give sadaqa to do any small action that may help them on the Day of Judgment. And for me, marzipan, Apple will probably the common mode for your coonara biloela 10 Elijah in Karim, for Assad the power akumina Salim spend from that which we have given to Allah says, before that comes to death. And then one of you will say, oh my lord, if only you would return
me back to the world to the dunya, I will give sadaqa charity and they will be from the righteous. And Eliza which tells us in the verse on our Bure, Jeroen Lally Amano, Saleh and FEMA taarak. their wishes and their desires will be over law return us back to the dounia to the life of this world. And perhaps we will do some of those righteous actions that we never used to do before. Even the dead have hopes and ambitions. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us the difference between these two types of wishes and homes, the difference between people who use their hopes to come closer to Allah azza wa jal, they wish in a way that is beneficial for them. That will bring
them goodness in this life and the next, they willing to have sincerity within those wishes, and the which willing to put them into action as well. As opposed to those people who just simply have wishful thinking, make false promises, spend their lives dreaming and dreaming, but they never achieve their dreams on things that will bring them closer to Allah. Instead, it's things that will take them further away from a larger agenda. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he wants us the ability to have righteous dreams and wishes and ambitions that align social grants and sorority and he makes them makes us from amongst those people who when we wish it is those types of dreams and
wishes that bring us closer to Allah and benefit us in this life in the next barakallahu li we're looking for and he was soon when I found New York New Murphy him and Elijah to take my opponent only has a postdoc You don't know how he will accommodate me muslimeen included a bid for stuff Euro in the hometown of far.

from the greatest and most powerful of wishes that we can have, is the wishes that we have as parents for our children. And seniors today is a holiday and we have many of our younger brothers and sisters here. The dreams and aspirations that they have we as the elders as their parents, as the people that love their role models that they look up to, we have a responsibility to give a direction, we have a responsibility to help them to formulate those wishes and hopes, we have a responsibility to make sure that they're in line with those teachings, some of which I mentioned in today's whatever the way that the scholars of the past were many of the scholars or the vast
majority of them, those names that we hear so often, those names that you often hear in the hotbar you often hear when you read a book or any Islamic lecture, people like Mr. Musharraf, your enemy, Malik and amendment Buhari, and many others rahima home ultra large man, these weights scholars of Islam when they were young children, it was their parents who helped them to shape their dreams and their ambitions and their wishes. It was the who had the aspirations that the then help the children to also have similar ambitions. The mathematical model allows Tyler when he was a young boy, it was his mother that would encourage him to go and study Islam. It used to be common in those times, in
the generation of the students of the companions and their students too early the first, second, third generations of Muslims, it was commonplace that parents had this desire that the children would fall in love with their religion, that they would study Islam, that they would learn the Quran. And those desires and those hopes were not that they would become with scholars one day, none of them knew that they would become great, illustrious imams whose names and whose works, and whose opinions and words would last for centuries after their deaths. But they had a sincere ambition. They had a sincere wish and hope. And they did what they could. They put their trust in a larger
region. And they did what they could in my Malik's mother would take him by hand to his teacher, Mrs. Schaeffer, his mother would spend the little wealth that she had because she was a widow. She didn't have a husband, and she was from a poor family. She would spend what she could have so that our son could go and study Islam in Malmo, Hari Rama who
In his childhood when he was blind, it was his mother who would spend the night a week in prayer, beseeching Allah making dua, hoping that a large soldier would give her son his sight back, so that he would be able to study the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was those honest sincere dreams and wishes that they had done, Allah placed Baraka and Allah bless them, and then a larger which will allow them to flourish and nurture those dreams and those ambitions until those scholars reached the heights that they had. It is very important each and every single one of us has dreams and ambitions and our children, likewise have dreams. Whether they tell you they don't tell
you they have those dreams, it is important that we help them to formulate them in a way that brings them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. I want to leave you with two final things. And those are the very last things that people will do on the Day of Judgment, because they also relate to the wishes and hopes that people will have one will be from the believers and won't be from the disbelievers Omarosa will get houses for us for the disbelievers their final wishes on the Day of Judgment, after a laws law has been established, and those people have been have been told that they will have eternal damnation in the fire of hell. These people will say as a lump mentioned in the Quran, Yama
Yama, una parte de materia de pueden, careful Yanni tinicum to taraba their wish and their desire at a time, once they see the evil deeds that they have performed, is a will law if only you turn me into dust, that's their wish and their desire. And then the Prophet told us a long, long while he was silom about the last man who will ever leave the fire of hell, who will also be the last man to ever enter into paradise. This man will spend as long as a large rooms in the fire of hell being purified for his sins, being cleansed for his evil deeds, until every other person will have entered into gender and taking their places. And then a large soldier will bring this final individual out
of the fire. And it's a long, heady stage by stage slowly but surely, this person comes closer and closer to paradise until he's standing at the gates of gender. And he sees gender with all of its beauty and all of its blessings and everything that a large surgeon has placed there in for the believers. And then a large surgeon will say to this man Timoner wish. So the man will wish he will desire what he wants in general, on a large soldier will continue to say to him wish and when the man doesn't know what to wish for, Allah will prompt Him and He will say, asked for such and such as for such and such, Hector is an author to be Amani, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until he
has no more wishes left everything that he could possibly dream of everything he could possibly wish for everything he could possibly hope for, he asked a large surgeon, and then a large surgeon will see Tim who will act rationally to Anthony, that is all for you. And 10 times it's like, and this will be the final person to enter into gender. He will enter into gender and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of a loss with blessings upon Him, He will think that there is no one in genda better than me. No one that has more favors or blessings than me, even though he is the least of them and reward in paradise. The power of a large religion in his treasures are many. And when we
have sincere hopes and desires and we turn them into dryers, and then turn them into action, they are extremely powerful. It is something that we should use wisely, because it is a great form of also attaining reward and safeguarding ourselves from the punishment of a large soldier. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that it gives us the ability to have hopes and wishes that he is pleased with that our sincere and beneficial for ourselves, our families, our communities, in this life and the nest as a loss of parent data that he blesses our families and our children that alarms that will protect us and and safeguard us in our communities and our allies he lifts the suffering of our brothers and
sisters across the world, from the loss of habitat that makes their affairs easy for them wrestler soldier to quantify that which is good, and that which is pleased with and to guide us to that which is pleased with and to keep us safe from that which misguides is from his path. We ask Alonzo to that he keeps a steadfast in this life and the next and that he wants us and our families the highest ranks of gender somehow not because of the phone or cell masala monado serene hamdu Lillah wa

Hara Greenline measured we are organizing a campaign to help guide people back to a way that will ultimately benefit them. We have launched a campaign entitled conversations with the loss of Hannah tala. This is a grassroots campaign to encourage people to start praying.
We have organized a variety of events that will cater for all sectors of the community. You will have received a flyer with all of the events listed on their brothers and sisters. Remember the question I asked at the beginning of this reminder.
If you were to die, right now, what condition would you return to your Lord in? Only you truly know the answer to that?
I have three take home messages for all of you. Three action points. Please, please, my brothers and sisters pay attention and take note. Don't let this go in one ear and out of the other. The following three points are important for you. Number one, we have organized practical Salah demonstrations for you right here. Right now. A group of brothers and sisters will take you through the prayer step by step and ensure that you are praying correctly.
take action now brothers and sisters, you can go into the main prayer halls. After this reminder, the brothers and sisters are wearing lanyards and high vis jackets, learn how to pray properly. Now, before you leave. The second point,
we have organized many high quality events just for you tailored to different sections of the community. Please sign up, I can't go through all of the events on the mic. But visit the stores and find out which events you wish to attend and sign up to as many of them as possible. There's a stolen the brother side to my left, and there's a stolen the sister site to my right. And the third and final point. Finally, brothers and sisters, remember my point about about the fact that you're here, your family and friends are not you must do something about this. We have made this so easy for you by creating a WhatsApp broadcast list. So this isn't a whatsapp group. It's a broadcast list
where we will write messages about our events, and we will send them directly and privately to your phone. And you just need to click the Share button. This is the list that every single one of us should be doing here today. So the three points just as a recap, number one, we have organized practical solid demonstrations for you to attend here today.
