wakulla mcdata, Tim Buddha wakulla, Buddha, Buddha Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

00:01:43--> 00:01:51

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam continue in sha Allah with the data you said in the pack secrets, we all love Vegas among them. I mean,

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

we talked last time about it too hard as bad we'll have to

00:01:56--> 00:02:01

put in the effort of planning and the truth about reliance have allowed that to happen.

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

And we talked about the stories of how to change ourselves, and when it actually has the impact about yourself personally, and your family, the community and the oma at large.

00:02:15--> 00:02:28

And today inshallah we're going to talk about something some of the scholar says it's all about the deen it's all about the reason of creation. It's all about us. Which is it pasado Bella,

00:02:29--> 00:02:44

the link to Allah, the attachment to Allah, to find Allah, and so on and so forth. But there are some price to pay, but the reward is abundant. And we are three ranks

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

to swab a shoe who would what would you

00:02:50--> 00:03:03

holding on? And the witnesses that actually testify for you or against you and finding out who had agenda when you need him? Is that their ID? Yeah, if they asked me, I will give them

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

and so on.

00:03:06--> 00:03:22

We'll talk about it in sha Allah, according to the Quran and Sunnah. And some of the righteous of that Sahaba Johanna's main, and some of the writers that we know that they are righteous Allah, and what is actually known according to us and some of the examples that we go through.

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

So first of all, I want you to think about it. When do you really feel close to Allah Subhana Allah,

00:03:31--> 00:03:56

you're supposed to feel close to that Allah when Allah says Allah, Allah says, if you want a lot to speak to you read the Quran. If you want you to speak to a love, pray by why some of us are actually not feeling this closeness to Allah when we pray. Let me give you an example. Imagine you're calling somebody on your cell phone.

00:03:58--> 00:04:02

And you try to call this person unfortunately,

00:04:04--> 00:04:05

he's actually calling right now.

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

Unfortunately, you didn't get him.

00:04:10--> 00:04:31

You have his voicemail? What kind of link? And how close Will you be to this phone, when you're talking to a voicemail? Not very close, you just gotta leave a very dry voicemail, blah, blah, blah, blah, you know, the formalities of leave. And that's it. But if you actually in the middle of meeting your voice, all of a sudden he picks up

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

and all of a sudden your tone changes. Hey, how you doing? Have you that mystery, man?

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

All of that stuff, come and see us they haven't been on tour. major difference. What's the difference? The difference for us talking to Allah Subhana Allah as we recorded a message. And that's exactly why we're doing this bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla, same thing, same thing over and over and over again. We don't understand what we're saying. We don't feel it and we don't live it. So what

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

doing just aerobic exercise. But when do you feel close to a loss? Remember normal? Ah, when do you really close when you have a deer now, when you raise your hands up and actually have them on a job, you're speaking to a lot

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

when you actually think that you're speaking directly to a low.

00:05:20--> 00:05:29

That's exactly the feeling. Yes, you're supposed to have my brothers and sisters, when you have this Yep. Even when you have this closeness to a loss of

00:05:31--> 00:06:00

understanding what it means that half and half how Allah subhanaw taala replies back to you. And that's why I'm blanking on his name. He used to actually pause between every infj how he was asked why is because a lot of us have had an agenda that's answering me back. It's not being fitting for me to speak when the loss of iodine is speaking to me. So he has to pause and listen to that 100 in line behind me, he will pause hamadani Id

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

do you understand the link. And you understand how far we are and how some of us are close to me.

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

But you have to pay a price. And you'll see why. And the old man's game, but never despair, what

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

the true disaster

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

is we're actually getting from inside we can get him on the outside for reasons. But we should never be beaten from inside, never cut that link off the slide below are always there.

00:06:34--> 00:06:38

So understanding what that this means that you have to come back and understand.

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

Give you another example. Remember, when your child, your father looked like a giant?

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

Remember that when you were scared used to run back to your mother.

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

And if you see something else, you'll be wrapped around in your father. That's it. If you like what you're protected, it's not amazing.

00:06:59--> 00:07:08

But how if you are actually protected with a loss of Hannah Angela viola, if you know that is that one, The Guardian has no law.

00:07:10--> 00:07:49

That's what we talked about. You understand why? Now most of us have looked into measure sticks as a worldly, earthly link. We looked at the measuring stick of success says how much money you have in the bank? What would the world police and you know what I'm talking about when think about you? Do you have the Golden Arches? Did you conform that's what they're telling you right now, you have to conform with the world, whatever it is that you want to follow nowadays, you don't like some people taken off the throne and get on the throne, because they've conformed with the measuring stick that they actually tell you to follow under that. That's the measuring stick we've taken. But we left the

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

measuring stick that comes from the heavens, we've taken the measuring stick of the creation, and we've left the Creator. So you understand why.

00:08:02--> 00:08:14

Because we have cut off the link, the upload is cut off the Wi Fi signal is low as we talked about it before. So the download is the same. You understand that he

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

now think about it.

00:08:18--> 00:08:29

A Levels of handle to Allah gave us examples of other battles. And we've given you the examples before. But when do you realize that they weren't getting the victory? What disease it

00:08:33--> 00:08:37

was that big apadana Allah one.

00:08:41--> 00:08:47

realize why they were not getting the fact that they were not getting the victory. Why? Because they don't have the weapons. Yes, we are. We said that.

00:08:48--> 00:09:07

We understand that. I understand that. But now what is exactly what's going on? They actually realized that earlier answer they says Rob better Our Lord, the one that in his hand, the Law Center when life and death and the treasures of everyday, your law, your banner,

00:09:08--> 00:09:13

no banner, they realized it was our sins Your mother has told you.

00:09:14--> 00:09:56

See, the scholars will tell you everything that you make is a key job. There is a veil between you and Allah, every sin you make, there's a job. How do you actually get through that? come back and tell about is the father do righteous deeds but never despair? But how many of us have come back? How many of us have realized that the weapons we have? How many of us have realized them? You know what, oh, this guy put me on the throne. He's my master now. Because if I don't obey my master, he'll take me out of the throne. You understand? That's exactly what we did. So it's time for us to cut off the link of the creation and uplink with the Creator. We're not saying the bad and nasty law

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

of law. It's not the hook. It's not the center of a Muslim a true believer. No

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

We're supposed to be good leaders examples. But we're saying our mission stick has to change. Because you know what, some people have their disalvo the power, I have money, I'm connected. I have this vision, I'm connected. I have this type of whatever beauty and it doesn't matter. But they haven't thought of the link that the solving lies directly.

00:10:25--> 00:10:32

That's the problem. Understanding again, the story of when did we lose it when we got off the link.

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

So the support was not there. So it's not really our own level of luck. So we have to come back. You see, there was a shake telling you one of his students, he says lucullus a year at in a pub,

00:10:47--> 00:11:12

his associations telling their students Be careful, because for every sin, there's a punishment. So this student, one of the students was praying. There was no punishment for about a week past two weeks past three weeks past. He didn't feel any punishment. So in the prayer, yeah. As if he was speaking to a lump internally, outside to cover him to help me.

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

He's speaking within himself to the alpha i disobeyed you, but I didn't punish me. As if he heard.

00:11:23--> 00:11:38

I'm saying as if looking back up to the whole buses, who's speaking to me? Well, I understand the meaning. Okay. As if he heard Yeah, but the other two column Teddy. Oh, my sleeve, I punished you. But you didn't. You didn't recognize it?

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

haram Touka. That is

00:11:45--> 00:11:59

your punishment. I took off this Menagerie, this link, when you speak to me, you feel it. So I'm going to give you one measuring stick at the end of the When did you lose this link? Did you understand your punishment?

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

Now the punishment is not going to come in materialistic, not necessarily

00:12:04--> 00:12:23

the punishment that you don't feel the beauty of the prayer anymore, you don't have that tear that used to come, it's gone. The heart is hardened is no longer soft, the hijab is taken off. The printer is gone. The Gemini is gone. Fasting is gone.

00:12:24--> 00:12:39

We'll let you will hear it. He used to pray. He used to memorize the plan. My son used to give hope by name I said my daughter used to memorize the Quran and she would that she used to me she used to be she used to be sad. When did we lose it

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

when we lost the link?

00:12:45--> 00:13:28

So we have to understand that. Is there wisdom in it? Yes. What's going on to the owner? For sure. There's the wisdom. There's a dose, there is a lesson for us to come back and return to a law like that predecessors didn't recognize that and not be so ignorant and keep playing the blame game. It's somebody else's not me. It's our leaders. They told us not that conspiracy theory. Yeah, I mean, we know we understand that. But I was gonna live in this. I'm gonna submerge ourselves and devote our whole lives about the conspiracy theory, and somebody else will take care of it. How about yourself? When did we ever change within ourselves? Why do we blame others and wait for others? like we talked

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

about? Isn't it time? It's time allow us to say open up

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

with a bit of drama.

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

This is just the number one. Yeah, to some. There is that should do, which we'll talk about

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

to make us among those who follow the best of it.

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Amanda de about another.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

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

This battle Samia, she

00:14:14--> 00:14:20

when you see a girl walking around and you drop, you lower your gaze that is that to some

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

Mather law

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

in the world be fascinated with why you're lowering your gaze and you will feel a taste will lie hidden scholars will tell you if you do what you're commanded.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

Below somehow no title will give you what you want.

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

But you want the Khurana but you haven't done this.

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

You want this high level but you have a nominal straight path. You want the reward without paying your dues. Like here, you get a job. Listen. How did he hire me? Why? I'm awesome, bro. I love you man. My name is mo

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

My name is Lena fever, hiring my brother from another mother. This is a system. And yeah, you got the job my man I love you. Good, good. Then the brother Dixon here he sits by the door.

00:15:13--> 00:15:17

But I love you. You see, I'm a Muslim like you. Yeah.

00:15:18--> 00:15:43

What happens? You get fired. Because you have to do something to get rewards. You don't just get the job and sit. I understand some of us back home when we get a job. Because I know my uncle's cousin Vinnie and my my brother's muscle bla bla bla don't have to know just sign here come at 10 o'clock and leaves at 10 o 1010. And you up check in. That's how we lost the Wright brothers. How we lost that is what we haven't done anything and we expect to everything.

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

Now understanding that is the case that Allah Subhana Allah says, while possible will be happening. Let me

00:15:55--> 00:16:02

hold on be united. Don't be okay. How many times have you? Did I get the questions? You know, how long is the viewership?

00:16:03--> 00:16:19

through stories? I'm telling you, like, you know, we have so much stuff on our mind. And this brother made sure and I mentioned this before, he made sure how long he had to measure him. Is it over the years? Is it because I can pray behind you? If it's not?

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

He made sure that you know what, yeah, he won't let you there's 100 humming and Sagittarius

00:16:26--> 00:16:30

in the GTA and too many bombs. Yeah, me go pray behind the demanda

00:16:31--> 00:16:47

it doesn't bother me. May Allah guide me and guide you how to learn. But he made sure what Maya was dealing with, with a brother and sister gonna kill each other in my office and the brother and then she you know what? I'm so busy. But okay, let me see. Maybe it's an emergency. I pick up the phone. She How long is your beard because I can pray behind you.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

Sure, I'm so happy he was on the phone because

00:16:53--> 00:17:10

another brother will lie here. Say I'm venting. Now. This is a therapy session from email. A brother came to me say I have to speak to you about something. Yes, I see something here. There's a meter. I can't take it. There's something terrible in this message. I'm gonna have to speak to you. But he was nice. He spoke to me privately that he said we look like a mushrik

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

because your moustache is too big. That's that's his proof. I said yeah, he Do you know how

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

the course is, you know he had a mustache. According to get it. You had a mustache used to be roll up there. And down here. When you used to think of something for the O'Malley's to be angry? Was he?

00:17:34--> 00:17:50

Now do you take Do you know the difference between a cost and a muscle and all of that stuff? No idea. But that's all the things you see. Now. Is it half this way or half? Or this way? Or this way? Yeah, I mean, there's so many things, but what we do is we stick to the weeds we don't

00:17:52--> 00:18:07

like we have to go up not a little more. Please don't worry about how short how this long, just okay, just pray that you get within yourself, concentrate on concentrate on the two sides of the ledger. And don't worry about anybody else. And that's what we talked about before the 10 things that we talked about.

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

And that's what we have to do. So Satoshi mala told us what to do, but we're not doing it. So we have what to do we have to blame ourselves.

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

Now, a shoot the shot is you will see the fruit now. Once you do something, you will see it

00:18:28--> 00:18:53

you will see what happens. You will see the tear that you have in the middle of the night, where the last third of the night. When you actually do on camera lay you will feel it. When you pray you will know that your body shaking when you really want to hear it is you will actually testify that is actually there. You will know that you're on the path

00:18:54--> 00:19:00

you will know whether you're close or not to Allah. So if you're not close to Allah, what are you waiting for?

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

You see, the scholars will tell you

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

if you find a love letter,

00:19:12--> 00:19:18

nothing will harm you if you lose it if you find the law. But if you lose a lot,

00:19:19--> 00:19:24

everything is lost. Everything is lost No matter how much you have

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

to understand.

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

Now all you have to do is have the measuring stick

00:19:32--> 00:19:40

up my sleeve. Here's what I asked I created everything for you and I created it for me. So come back to me. link back to me.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

A Levels of high level gentle if you like the open doors are 24 seven. There's nothing there. Other than that.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

So all you have to do is keep the measuring stick. Look at your life as we speak. Every day every aspect of your life is that according to that what allows you to do

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Or is it according to a different measuring stick that we think of, and how it is important to us to show off and so on and so forth?

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

Now, my brothers, the last statement

00:20:12--> 00:20:26

is that, would you now if you go into that facade, you actually held on to the sooner you get the commands, you will find the beauty should with dissing it

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

you'll find where you are what comes up what you do for a living your hard earned money and and and you will find it.

00:20:37--> 00:20:43

But then, would you that's the closest level you see, this is like Islam, a man at

00:20:46--> 00:20:53

the highest level. Yeah, she would love to find a loss of Hannah Viola in dire needs.

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

give you some examples.

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

Long time ago, you know the story about the man that had to conquer a specific city, and that he would do it before the sun is up set. So it says in the

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

Moon

00:21:12--> 00:21:19

The sun is commanded. He felt like as they're commanded to follow the orbit, but I'm commanded

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

to conquer and relay the message. And

00:21:25--> 00:21:29

so he took an oath. And Allah subhanaw taala held the sun.

00:21:30--> 00:21:34

And it wasn't then until unless the lows of Hanukkah give that leader.

00:21:35--> 00:21:39

So I don't know where I'm gonna get love. I'm on the Saba does it say that?

00:21:44--> 00:21:47

When he was fighting in the battle,

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

and he was harmed.

00:21:52--> 00:21:52

his buddy

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

betrayed the provenance.

00:21:58--> 00:22:02

And he had been hit. And he was bleeding.

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

So he asked

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

for a favor, yellow letter would mean

00:22:15--> 00:22:21

don't take me at your lunch I have the apple of the eye yesterday by eating yesterday

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

will give me the comfort of the ease.

00:22:26--> 00:22:41

This ill feeling in my heart will be alleviated for those who betrayed us and betrayed the covenant. Not because they are certain followers of a certain religion, no, because they actually did betray the provenance the treaty that they did.

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

So allows him to

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

heal the blood back no more.

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

Then he got on his feet again. And he took him back to the battlefield.

00:22:56--> 00:23:12

The story is long well showerheads, but what we're talking about here is that they agreed for him to be that ruler to be the judge between the two groups, the Muslims or whatever he decides they will submit.

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

So he comes in

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

he says, I am the Hockney. I come

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

Will you accept My ruling upon you? They said we agreed. Because he was their ally before so they knew that he was not gonna let them down. Then out of his respect to Prophet Mohammed Salim says, I am the hooked me. una

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

una.

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

He says, will you accept my judgment of those who are here? He did not want to say I am the hook me Allahu Allah. So Allah is Allah.

00:23:50--> 00:24:02

He says well My ruling pass upon those who are here meaning Prophet Mohammed Salah. He did not want to say well My ruling be above an accepted upon Prophet Mohammed Salah look at the etiquettes and matters

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

accepted

00:24:05--> 00:24:15

so he ruled from the seventh heaven because he exactly rule what allows him to Allah rule by so Prophet Mohammed Salim says Allah Akbar.

00:24:16--> 00:24:19

How can I be mad? Allah will be human focused.

00:24:21--> 00:24:26

He ruled what know what what Allah subhanaw taala ruled by from the seventh heaven.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

Now I'm gonna ask you a question at the end of it.

00:24:32--> 00:24:36

When did you actually ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for something on you Goddess.

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

When did you actually when your back was against the wall and says I may use even when

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

she was super Allah wa

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

When did you actually have your back That's it. All the doors are closed but the only door that can open is the door of a lot that you did not knock on the door.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

You knock on everybody else's door except the last door

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

When was the last time he or she asked for something that allows that I gave it to you?

00:25:06--> 00:25:16

Well, I know I know some of the brothers that the ask Allah for something we're lucky that he led you down that level door knocks.

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

A brother walks in the door. He says, This is for you. What la isla de la de la isla I know some of the brothers.

00:25:28--> 00:25:49

You see if you love someone, and he did a favor for you, what are you going to do? What kind of perfume you like to share what kind of answer you like right? I'm going to Medina I'm going to Mecca What do you want? So if you know that actually like they will give it to you what kind of a whatever you understand that somebody is going to favor for you What do you do? They will give you something they will give you a chocolate they will give you whatever it is, like the shape.

00:25:50--> 00:25:58

He likes. Russell like as soon as he declared that's my package of breathalyzers, but we don't want to keep the shape, hopefully inshallah.

00:26:00--> 00:26:05

So the point is, when you like somebody, you want to give them what they want. Well, one day,

00:26:07--> 00:26:10

a brother wanted amount of money, a certain amount of money.

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

One brother came into my office, and he says, you know, you know, I have something to tell you, whatever the story was.

00:26:22--> 00:26:41

And he opened his checkbook, and he gave this person a check with the exact amount that this brother had to pay off. Well, like I just I have tears in my eyes. But he says, he said, I don't know why. I don't know why I picked this number, but I incited me I know why he picked this number. Because

00:26:42--> 00:26:49

the brother had the link to Allah. And he was honest. He wanted to pay off his debt or or

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

and so many times I've witnessed it personally myself.

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

What is the key my shake? My brothers and sisters decided

00:26:59--> 00:27:12

Don't worry about the rest. If you get the one at home, on your site, Allah make us among those who speak in front of the best of it and come close back to you on law and repent from the sins that is holding us back. I mean

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

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