Well, my ukulele for la de la wa shadow Allah Allahu Allahu la sharika why one no Mohammed and who are a Zulu who sold Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah. He was so happy he was
a MOBA iodophor in a halal Hadith Nikita of Allah heeta Allah wa Hey, Ron headier had you Mohammed in Salah Allahu Allah He was in worship Raul OMO Remo, the third to have a coulomb of data in vida. Aquila be the atom Allah Allahu Allahu Allah that infinity
for a human being to be able
to confront and deal with life's problems.
They must have a deep conviction and deep Iman
So when Allah azza wa jal said in the Quran
what are the seven Alladhina potuto visa vie Allah here and where to Bella here? While I can data Sharon
do not think or suppose that those who were killed in the sake of Allah azza wa jal to be dead but they're alive but you do not feel it. You do not know.
And then he said subhanho wa Taala with blue wonder Combi che mineral hope he will do a one minute M word he will. We'll see what Thammarat Baba Shiraz Savarin
we're going to afflict you with something of hunger
and loss of wealth and loved ones and crops and give good tidings. Good news for those who are patient
Alladhina either Asaba Tomasi, Baton Carlu inna Lillahi wa inna Illa you write your own those who when they are afflicted, they say in early Allah, we belong to Him. We've came from him, he does with us whatever he wants to pan over to Allah and we shall indeed go back to him.
Allah, Allah him Salah to me Robbie him Rama or would I go home and move to dune it is those who will receive the praise of Allah azza wa jal and His mercy and it is those who are the guided
now they can only be guided and they can only be patient and they can only withstand all of lives tests and all of his life's attractions and temptations because of their Iman and Allah subhanho wa Taala either because they believe in Allah he were in ala here Rajon
and what we are missing today
is that deep conviction and deep Iman and deep knowledge of Allah subhanho wa taala. In essence, really basically our our theta is really weak.
And when we're talking about our theta, what do we mean by it, we deep we mean a conviction
that is so deep inside
that is primary.
That supersedes everything else that you live for, and die for.
Something that you believe with all of your heart,
not casually but you really believe in and your body follows through and submits to that belief because everything that you believe in must translate and must manifest in choices that we make in life. Otherwise, our contradiction shows that what we believe is really weak.
So our iman our Aqeedah our conviction our to Hayden, Allah subhanho wa Taala is weak enough
that our reactions to lives,
occurrences to its temptations to Allah's commands,
or is questionable.
And that should prompt us to go back and re educate ourselves and rediscover what do we mean when we say La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah.
Some of the scholars have said
that people today understand La ilaha illallah much worse than people of the town of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam referring to the non believers
because he said the disbelievers they rejected that statement because they understood
what it means
and they were willing to die, resisting it because they understood what it means. But Muslims today, a lot of us, we don't understand what it means and its importance. That's why when you start to talk about tau hate and Athena and what have you, some people snooze.
They think we know
we're in the routine I mean, Janina this reaction is because of our own ignorance because you don't understand what La Ilaha illa Allah means and it's gravity. If you understand that the only reason that you're on Earth is La ilaha illallah there is nothing else. Your may be sad today or tomorrow because he didn't get what you want from the dunya things he did not go your way. things in life in general are not going your way. But Allah subhanho wa Taala when he said well, mahalo will Jinnah will insert it early on, I did not create you for anything, except for my worship. My brother, he is saying I did not create you except for La ilaha illallah nothing else. So it doesn't really matter.
If you get La ilaha IL Allah if you don't get anything else, because Allah compensates you for everything else that you think you could last.
But nothing compensates you for La Isla in the life you don't have it.
Allah Ilaha illa Allah means what?
That I will not worship anyone except Allah subhanho wa Taala
not only that, I believe that Allah is the deity
and the creator and the provider and the sustainer I believe on all of that. But I also never believed another worship anyone except him. Subhana who were to Allah.
And then no claim Rahim Allah, he said was Cyril Obadiah. He says the essence the secret of that Obadiah is that that you love no one as much as you love Allah Subhana Allah God.
See a bad this is why I want us to understand La Ilaha illa Allah and Arpita we think is just something that you memorize.
But when you understand that that EULA he'll Allah means that I also should not love anyone more than Allah azza wa jal, you understand the task that is ahead of us. Right?
And I shall not feel he continues and not fear anyone more than Allah azza wa jal
and believe that the only provider and sustainer is Allah, La Rosa Illa Allah
and no one can harm or benefit except Allah subhanahu wa Tada
and that you will not surrender or submit to anyone like Allah subhanho wa Taala
that is in a Illallah and he said that is the beginning and that is the end.
Because the in the beginning of all of it Allah azza wa jal extracted all of the children of Adam from the back of Adam I know he said, I'm, Ramesh had the whom Allah and fusi him others to be up become, then Allah azza wa jal questioned all the children of Adam meaning you have to imagine that scene where all of us
I out of the back of Adam and Eve, Salam were asked this question, am I not Europe?
And then all of us answered yes, called rubella
Shahina. We testify that that's the case. And tonewheel Malkia Mateen COULDNA and Heather, officially meaning we did this, and we tell you about it.
And we send the messengers and we send the books, all of it so that you don't say on the Day of Judgment, we didn't know about this.
Or that you would say our parents were polytheist and disbelievers and lovers of the dunya. So we did what they did.
Why should you punish us and Allah Azza did is telling you you are individually responsible because that testimony of la ilaha illa. Allah is bright deep inside of you.
We could bury it but it is in your fifth law, and you should allow it to grow. It is the beginning and it is the end. Because he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam McKenna Allahu kala Mahina Ilaha illa Allah Jana, if last statement of yours before your death is La Ilaha illa Allah you will enter Jannah
and he said Allah He is Salatu was Salam and kala La ilaha IL Allah mostly some p Herman palpi. He the halal Jana is as if you say no ilaha IL Allah sincerely from your heart, you will enter Jannah
that statement this is how important it is.
And he said of God with decree La Ilaha illa Allah who have got to do I will hamdulillah the best of vicar is the Illa Illa Allah
and the best of dua is Al Hamdulillah. And he also said to Annie Salatu was Salam ala Eman overthrown was a Bruna. shortbow Iman, all of Iman 70 Something branches, all the things that you do on your life that feed your iman and grow your commitment and bring you closer to Allah azza wa jal, all of them were incorporated into 70 Something branches, the best of them are there her Oh Lulu either in Allah their best is the saying and the belief of la ilaha illa Allah
because everything comes from that.
And that is what Allah has certain will ask us about in the grave and that is the thing that separates people into Heaven or Hell.
Yet because we do not know it.
You find this committing Sherkin Allah azza wa jal and because we do not know it, and we do not emphasize it. We don't know how to exit from the wilderness that we are in.
We want to fix its Muslims problems. We want to bring people together. And we complain, rightfully so then Muslims are not united, and they don't come together and they disagree over this and this and that. What is the solution?
How do you bring Muslims together? How do you bring these hearts together? What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do?
For 13 years or so in Mecca? What was the emphasis emphasis, it was on to heat on submission to Allah azza wa jal on believing him Subhana who were to Allah and His promise and relying on him, believing in him so much. It's as if you could see what he's promising in front of your eyes, not reality, but what Allah promised and sacrificing your dunya and yourself and what is valuable to you for His sake. That's what Aqeedah gives you.
It becomes a fire burning inside of you that I want to love Allah who didn't want to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala because he is the most precious thing that I have. And I will never contaminate or taint my life and my ways and my sayings with Shem never.
And that's why you find the Tao of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal was very different than our Dawa today. And the Tao of Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam was very different than our our today, because when someone is sincere and close to him, Subhana who were to Allah, Allah gives him far more success than our success because our efforts are scattered,
knew how to use Salam when he was talking to his people to understand
the level of Eman that he had, and trust in Him subhanho wa Taala when he said to his people in Canada, a couple of Aliko MACOM, he would have KDB, a Atilla he for Allah Allah He Terkel for me, oh Umbra co Musharaka confirmed malaria can come home for a year without rune.
I want you to imagine somebody saying something like that, which he said to his people, he says, If I'm bothering you, and you hate the fact that I'm standing, reminding you day after day, then unite you and your partners and everybody that you want.
Unite Against me. Don't hesitate and try to harm me and try to stop me
and do everything in your power to hurt me. I'm standing right here alone.
And they couldn't.
And they didn't.
And similarly with Muhammad Ali, he is Salatu was Salam when Allah told him Allahu wa Similkameen and NUS.
He says, I'm Allah Who will protect you and guard you against people.
The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, I don't need no protection anymore.
Where does this come from?
It comes from a belief that when Allah says something, it is so
you believe in it, more than the promise of those who employed you or a government promise or a doctor's promise?
Or a financial advisor promise you believe in it more than anything else, that it is only going to happen?
And that is the conviction of Aqeedah and to heed and believing in La Ilaha illa Allah
Allah Vina un Leonessa let Europe be him we have shown the hula yak Shona i Then he'll Allah, those who deliver the messages of Allah azza wa jal, and they fear Him and they fear none. But Allah azza wa jal
imagine you fearing no one except Allah has
But that can only happen when Allah is so great in your eye
and so powerful and you know that He is Allah we al Aziz al Hakim,
Allah Allah you will allow him will carry him, you know him with his names and attributes subhanho wa taala. And you approach him with these names and attributes and these names become part of you.
Because you relate to him, and you talk to him, and you understand what they mean. They become so real that the power of humanity diminishes in your eye until it is nothing and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says what alum know that if the people of Earth all unite against you, to harm you with something that Allah did not right, they will not be able to.
Right? And if all of them unite to benefit you something that Allah did not right they will not be able to that is belief in Allah and Kedah. That is the strength that the believer has. There all of you can't harm me. individually or collectively you all can harm me unless Allah says so. That's the weakness of humanity and the power of Allah azza wa jal, but you got to believe
and you must not have fear in your heart.
like a few you have from Allah or love
loving Allah subhanho wa Taala
that a bear that we talked about that we do not know that we don't teach our children. When we tell them believe that either Halal Allah does not mean
this is a booty it means something or woody it means that you love Allah azza wa jal completely and fully and you submit to Him completely and fully these two things
can we remember the definition?
that you love Allah azza wa jal with all of your heart fully
and to submit to Him fully McElmurry
that is the Buddha Yeah. So when I'm saying worship Allah azza wa jal with sada and cm and Zika and, and and and meaning do all this with complete love for him subhanho wa Taala meaning start to love him. How do I love Allah subhanho wa Taala by knowing that everything good comes from Him Subhan Allah to Allah and everything bad that you think is bad is good, because there's something good in it.
Nothing bad ever comes from him. subhanho wa Taala It is how we react badly to things. But everything that happens from him Chapin over to Allah is good. All there is all the provisions all your all your requests come from some him subhanho wa Taala
your well being
your bounties, your gifts, your loved ones, your mother, your father, your kids, your job, all of them are from Allah Zoda there's nothing that you have that you love, except that it came from him.
And he continues to give us despite our shortcomings,
and to love Him subhanho wa Taala also because He is the supreme, he is the most beautiful, he's the most generous, he's the most forgiving, you do terrible things and I do terrible things and they say Allah please forgive me and he forgives and overlooks and conceals
and guides and facilitates and protects and keeps giving.
So when you're teaching your kids La Ilaha illa Allah teach them to love Allah more than anyone else and teach them
to submit to Him subhanho wa Taala more than anyone else.
And to answer the question of why is it that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam succeeded? It is because when you have to heed, this is habla.
Watashi movie Hi, Belinda. Hey, Jamie, I will add to hold on all to the rope of Allah and do not divide. If everybody believes the same thing, with the same strength, with equal commitment, then you have unity.
That's the secret which is not a secret but it's a secret. That's unity.
Because people are not after their own lots in life, they're not after our their own glory or the dunya. It's for Allah Zota there's sincerity. But also they don't interpret religion according to their own reason or emotions know, the Quran says this. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam says this, everybody submits to it. So you don't have division in terms of belief. And you don't have division in terms of effort. And then people unite and that's what made the Sahaba of the Prophet alayhi salatu was so strong around Muhammad Ali's Salah to a sinner and what makes us so scattered today is that that Athenian
That clarity is missing. In terms of belief, everybody believes differently.
And in terms of commitment,
we don't have the same goals
to ask a lot of Bill Alameen or hamara Hamid to unite our hearts. The way that he reunited the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who loco Li had was the hula Leona convinced a few.
hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen Hamdan cathedra on the IBA Novara can fee who also leawo Salam o Allah Rasool e Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam.
When you read the book of Allah azza wa jal from beginning to end you will find it
repetitively emphasizing the hate of Allah azza wa jal in almost every area
and we will look at the best of the best of the Quran. If someone were to ask you what is the best idea in the Quran?
And he will say I will corsi as he said unto you, Salatu was Salam. Go back and read AYATUL kursi and tell me and tell yourself, why is it that this was the best idea? What is it talking about except Allah as total from beginning to end, glorifying him? subhanho wa Taala
when you know that Kulu Allah who had one of the shortest sutras in the Quran is equal to 1/3 of it. Why is this short Surah equal to 1/3 of the Quran?
Except because it talks about him subhanahu wa taala.
And there is nothing more beautiful and more honorable and more rewarding than the mention of Allah subhanho wa Taala because everything think about it, everything else that we're doing, came from him and it should be for him. Everything else. Nothing makes sense except through Him. Subhanahu wa Taala nothing makes sense if you don't have Allah azza wa jal, and nothing makes sense if you don't have to heat. And that's why it's also important for us to know what shidduch is, and to rid ourselves of it, whether it is the major one or whether it's the minor one because you cannot have both you cannot have to heed of Allah azza wa jal and then *can Allah azza wa jal, how many
people today just as an example, swear by someone other than Allah has an origin they swear by the Prophet, they swear by their parents or loved one.
And also the likes of Allah. It was in them Sigmund Khalifa de la he felt like a shock. If you swear by any thing other than Allah, that is sheer. Anything. Even Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam, even the GABA, you want to say Say You Want to Build GABA?
Warabi Mohammed but not when maybe would have been a baby, because everything else is *can Allah azza wa jal
how many people today
when they want to seek to know the unknown, the vape they may seek psychics and fortune tellers and magicians. I'm talking about people living in villages I'm talking people living in the city doing this.
And Allah azza wa jal tells us we're in the homothetic Hola Hola. Hola Hola who the unseen is only known to Allah as so to no one is going to know what happens tomorrow no single entity on earth or in the heavens knows it. Except Allah azza wa jal And if Allah teaches someone, but no one has the hidden except him SubhanaHu wa Tada.
How many people when something that happens to them, they think that someone can cure them or someone can protect them, and they forget to resort to him SubhanaHu wa to Allah. How many of us, as he said, Alayhi Salatu was Salam in the Hadith that ASA Abdu denari, Teresa Abu dyrham misery to the slave of gold and misery to the slave of Durham. How many of us today even we don't bow to the dollar, we don't bow to property, we don't bow to wealth. But that is the thing that we care about most and we live for it and we die for it. We happy if we have it and we're sad as if we don't. That's our main concern in life. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said what said Teresa misery to
a person who believes this on who lives like that. And when the love of the dunya competes with the love of Allah azza wa jal, it becomes also a shake in the heart.
Do you tell a person go and earn $1 and they jump, you tell them go and earn a hasna that could save you in the next life and they procrastinate.
ate and they're lazy and they postpone What is this except an indicator of a weak Love of Allah azza wa jal and a strong tenacious love of the dunya.
That La ilaha illallah him that instant is weak, and it doesn't produce
the virtue that Allah wants from you, it doesn't save you when something bad happens to you. Some of us when you tell them about the hereafter,
they turn away, because they think that this is something that is going to happen
decades and decades from now millions of years from now, so they don't care.
But if you tell them that you need the al Qaeda for right now.
Because if you don't have it, you could lose all of it. You could be tempted in ways and the dunya is very tempting that can take all of your Eman away. And if you're not strong, this world can devastate you. How could you withstand the loss of a loved one, or all of your lives earnings? Or your job and career? How could you stand losing your health? Losing your house? Or a doubt in Iman, if you're a man and our theater is not already strong? How could you be ready? So we can't live like sick people spiritually. When Eman we can be sick, waiting for the next wave to kill us. We need to understand that either in Allah and appreciate it. Allah is not going to ask you about your color
and about how what are you married or not? Whether you have children or not, whether you're successful or not, Subhan Allah Allah cares not nothing about these things. But he'll ask you about La Ilaha illa Allah had the very thing that we were and I don't care about. He'll ask you about la isla in Mala. What did you do with it? Did you believe it? And he'll ask you about Muhammadan rasul Allah. Did you follow Muhammad? Or did you follow your own mind? I think I suppose I feel like it shouldn't be this way. It should be that way. To whom did you submit and everybody submits to something and someone, everybody
you submit to a doctor or you submit to a scientist or you submit to a government or you submit to your parents or to your spouse or to your children? There is someone that you are submitting to.
About Allah azza wa jal
and why he is not the supreme that we surrender to. And everybody else is secondary.
To ask Allah Allah Allah mean or hamara honey yeah Allah elevate your love in our hearts so that we don't love anyone more than we love you. You Allah we asked you that we love you more than we love ourselves and our children and our properties and everything on earth. And we ask that we fear you more than we fear anything or any living being on earth your beloved me was your pal Allah mean that we believe in our hearts deep inside that you are the one who can benefit and harm and you are the one who could save us and the only one who can provide for us and that would relate to you through your names and attributes era Bill alanine, were asked Dr. hamre he means strengthen Eban in our
hearts, and teach us our religion teaches the true meaning of la ilaha illallah Han makers of those who carry that and spread the tiara Bill Alameen make us of those who unite the Ummah, Muhammad Ali salatu salam upon the truth and follow it make us of those who understand the falsehood that you dislike and avoid it. Make us of those uribl al Amin who supplicate frequently and ask you for forgiveness for frequently make us of those who rely upon you and trust you and believe in your promises.

And before I conclude and before I forget, I must reiterate that the brothers had flown all the way from Edmonton, here to seek your help in building that school. And as always, we say, think about it in two ways. The first way is if you help someone learn Islam, that stays for you, as long as that person and their progeny continue to benefit with what you have done. So you have an opportunity for a continuous charity. So don't withhold but give for yourself and believe that Allah Zildjian will return whatever you've given to him. So give generously for Allah Zildjian and let this be a
demonstration of I love Allah more than I love this money. So the second thing, consider it always an opportunity we we do not know how long we will live. That's true. So the only thing that you could afford today is $1. Give that dollar Allah knows $5 gift hype dollars, but always, always give something and don't withhold
The need half a million. Allah azza wa jal can give that to them. So we ask Allah that Allah azza wa jal will give them success in their trip and their collection, and that Allah will open our hearts so that they will get from us what they need. And Allah azza wa jal can provide for them we ask Allah azza wa jal I mean your herbal Allah meanwhile they miss Allah
