Loma Linda million fauna and Vemma Olympia Anna was in the inland Rabbil Alameen. Aloma in the Ricoh Shu Creek, neighborhood attic.

00:00:11--> 00:00:11

My bad,

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

you will not be able to Hema hula had

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

painted a picture for us last time of the three circles that circle of a sand and the circle of Eman and the circle of Islam.

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

And he said that the most exclusive or the top

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

circle is that of Sn. And one's aim is to be among NYC noon.

00:00:36--> 00:00:58

And if a person commits a sin or fails to perform obligations, things that bring him or set him on the right have. So sins will expel that person from the circle of Sn so he falls from the top circle of ESA into the circle of iman.

00:00:59--> 00:01:06

And he can stay in the circle of iman. But if he continues to commit sins, he falls from the circle of Eman into the circle of Islam.

00:01:07--> 00:01:21

And if he continues to commit sin, the fear here as ignore claim will explain is that those sins will remove him completely from the circle of Islam because they lead or they can lead to disbelief to Cofer as he will say.

00:01:22--> 00:01:33

So just to comment on the circles, then we'll go and talk about the circle of Eman and kind of the privileges that it gives. So think of these circles as

00:01:35--> 00:02:02

a membership club. Think of them as a society think of them as a circle of privilege, like every person wants privilege, and wants to be among the select the elite, the one who says you but not anyone else. Or if you enter into this circle, this room, this category, first class, second class economy, whatever it is, right. So if you enter here, see how much you get.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

So that makes it very attractive.

00:02:07--> 00:02:18

So in Islam, the most attractive, the most privileged, the best of circles, those that is reserved for the elite is the circle of Sn.

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

And you want to be in that circle you want to be a member in it.

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

You should never settle for or I'll just be a Muslim.

00:02:29--> 00:03:16

Right? Because one you will think where's the ambition then? Because you always want in the dunya to be better, right? Physically you want to exercise, even if you don't exercise, but in your mind one day, right? One day, I'll run a marathon one day. But at least in your mind, I aim to be better than I am right now. Okay, one day Insha Allah, I'm gonna upgrade to this and that one day, I'll invest one day. So in your mind, you do want to be better, and you never really settled and you never really satisfied with where you are now. So why when it comes to being religious, right, we are the least ambitious. In fact, you would hear some people saying, I don't want to be too religious.

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

There's too much, right?

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

It's too much of a burden.

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

And want to be a chef, I don't want to be this. I don't want to be that because like I want to enjoy life, or I want to do things that I want. And this is too restrictive. So there's absolutely no ambition when it comes to religion, but a lot of ambition when it comes to the dunya. So not only do you lose the circle of your son, you lose the circle of Eman and you barely hanging into the circle of Islam early. And he was really say that without exaggeration, barely hanging to the circle of Islam. You know about it very little, you do very little. And you do a lot of what would take you or what looks like a non believer would be doing. So we're barely hanging. So no, you have to be it's

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

like it's an obligation on you to be a religious person, right?

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

Like, what does it mean to be religious?

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

And when I'm saying you know, every year you're in Mecca,

00:04:13--> 00:04:28

we're not saying For instance, you know that you're coming here or giving Holocaust but what does it mean to be religious? You fulfill the basic obligations and you stay away from the Haram right? That's what it is. And if you don't know you ask

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

and you keep learning, and you want to be better. That's what it means to be religious. So when you're satisfied by not being religious, not only are you not ambitious, you're not among the privileged you're not among the Select, and you are likely to suffer because of it because if you aim for the moon, maybe you will fall next to the stars right but if you aim so low, your effort is not going to match. Effort is always lacking. If you're aiming

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

Your your intent is so low, your effort always lags behind. So what ends up happening is that you may not even maintain that faith. So you lose a son, then you lose Iman. And he said to hear, Rahim Allah that when you lose or you exit that circle of Eman, you will lose the company of the believers Allah defends them, and every good thing that Allah had written for the believers, and he says it's about 100

00:05:26--> 00:05:59

Let's say virtues or benefits, and each one of them is better than that Earth and what it contains, and he lists some of them. And I'm not going to go through all of them because this is not a lot. And it's just the thing and I the thing and the ISO for instance, a lot of reward, Allah defends them. The angels ask Allah to forgive them. Allah commands the angels to established the believers and make them steadfast at defeat. They have honor Allah azza wa jal will be with them, he will elevate them.

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

Allah will love them and grant them love on this earth. Allah will secure them from fear or anything that could terrify them.

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

That the Quran is a guidance for them and a cure etcetera, etcetera.

00:06:14--> 00:06:25

So he says one Matsudo he says, they're kind of the summary of it is that Eman brings everything good. Everything good in the dunya and the Acura is because of iman, this is

00:06:26--> 00:06:35

good to remember. Kind of like as a as a slogan. Everything in the earth era. If it's good, what brings it

00:06:36--> 00:07:22

Iman that's clear enough, right? Everything good in the dunya what brings it also Iman and what protects from evil, Iman, so if there is any physical evil, Allah protects you from it if you have Iman, and if there's any physical benefit Allah gives it to you guides you to it, whether it's explicit in the Quran, explicit in the sunnah or implicit in them, or it's not but Allah guides you through an divine understanding from them towards what they are good or bad. See, you don't know sometimes you don't know sometimes as a believer, but bit but because you're a believer, should I take this job or not? Should I travel to this country or not? Should I be friends so and so or not?

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

Should I marry this or not? Where do you find that in the Quran and the Sunnah to tell you marry her, but not her.

00:07:28--> 00:07:42

Know, if everything's equal, right? No major sins nothing like to guide and enlighten you based on their specific circumstances. Where is this guidance going to come from? Should I open this business or that?

00:07:43--> 00:08:27

Should I joined in company are that is this halal or haram? But even if it's halal, is it good for me or not? Like how do you know? There's only do you would know, if you have Iman, and you ask Allah zoldan, Allah guides you and at that moment, you will not be certain you may not know. But Allah knows and He guides you. So everything good. He said, Iman brings it and Allah as it protects from all evil because of iman, Lucia dreamfit dunya will after every evil in the earth here and in the dunya is because of a lack of iman. Right? So look at all the evil in the world that we have today the apparent evil right now. And you say to yourself, if these people feared Allah and if they had

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

Eman, this would not be happening.

00:08:30--> 00:09:15

So when you think about it, if they feared Allah, they wouldn't be doing these things. So that evil would stop. So he said at the Sturmer rather dubious or Allah prefer a arena Allah Philby, he says he continues to sin. So now he falls into what the in the in the circle of Islam, but he continues to sin. Hello, Hertha Irina, Allah Holloway is possible right What fears for him that his heart will be covered? With more sense more sense more sense more darkness for your credo and Islam. We will Kalia and that would expel him from Islam entirely. Not that sins on their own. Expel a person from Islam

00:09:16--> 00:09:26

say understand what he's saying. So a person could be drinking or taking drugs or selling drugs or fornicating or and these are major sins.

00:09:27--> 00:09:40

Does that make him a non Muslim? No, he's still a Muslim. What makes him than a non Muslim is when he because of the all of these sins. He starts to lose. Iman

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

Eman itself departs his heart. I don't believe anymore. I'm not sure God exists. I don't believe the Quran is relevant. All these things right? He just loses the mind. So how did he lose that EMA? Because it slowly started to leave his heart one by one one by one and

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

And then when that doubt enters his heart, there is no defense. There is no EMA and right to enliven the heart expel the shaytaan so he takes it he accepts it. And of course there is this however, of course I want this to be handled because I'm doing it why should it not be Khaled? Why should I feel guilty? Alcohol is good. Drugs are good. Freedom is good. Let me be free to do whatever I want to say the Quran is too restrictive. The Sunnah is too restrictive, is backward it is not modern, right? So when you when you feel all these things, they begin as feelings and then we verbalize a person loses Islam entirely. Kala Amin who understood the hope was self assess and is because of

00:10:41--> 00:10:58

this the early predecessors what worried them was that which is that they could lose Eman, chemical about the home. Some of them have said and come to California, do you know what a half will COFRA he says you're afraid of sins, and I'm afraid of disbelief.

00:10:59--> 00:11:22

So here are the two kinds of things I want you to keep in mind. Ignore him on the one hand, he's talking about the sinners losing their faith. They have the setup or not do not belong to that category of those who are sinning and afraid of losing their faith. They are pious, but they're afraid of losing their faith, faith. Why are they afraid of losing their faith?

00:11:23--> 00:11:41

Especially like when you rise higher, you'd be afraid of losing your faith not just simply sinning but losing all of it. So are people at at the lower levels. He's afraid I'm afraid of committing this haram and that haram which is justified, right. I'm afraid of it. What is justified? But what are you missing?

00:11:42--> 00:11:59

That you feel secure from losing Eman? Why not afraid of Cofer? See Omar Al Khattab was afraid of hypocrisy. Right? He was afraid of hypocrisy. So what did he know? What does he know that we do not know? So

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

how you get when you climb closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala What do you get? You get that? This Iman is a gift from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:12:12--> 00:12:56

This Iman, is not yours. So you see Allah azza wa jal acting in this universe and you see those people, as disbelievers. And you see these people as believers, and you know that this is not your own actions, that makes you a believer. That's that's we're talking to people at the higher level. Right? You don't see yourself as the person who's giving himself Iman, you do contribute, but you're not the one who gives himself a man Allah gives it then you say to yourself, What if Allah azza wa jal looks at some of the bad things that I have that I've done in the past or I'm doing right now? Maybe I'm aware of him? Maybe I'm not. And then let's go let go of me. And I lose my Eman. So this

00:12:56--> 00:13:45

terrifies that person. So they surrender to Allah as Odin and they see Allah preserve me Nia Allah protect me. So there is increased fear, not security, increased fear. And that fear induces What greater Iman and surrender to Allah azza wa jal, right. So this is what he said, If you fall out of the circle of exon into a man and from a man into a slum, and then what happens you could lose all of it. And especially as people living today and especially as people living in Western countries, where you don't have the greatest incentive to be Muslims, you could lose it, you could really lose it. So that's why a person has to be terrified of the fact that they could lose that

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

and he says women will fall back at her and of the

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

punishments of the sin

00:13:55--> 00:14:38

Allah Anna hola HOW TO THE if we say URL can be ill Allah He would daddy if you're out to our work or how to clean for water cow and he said, he says of the punishment of that sin is that it weakens the heart as it travels to Allah azza wa jal or it impedes it or it stops it from its march two hours Allah Xeljanz so it does not let him take a step and lie or it causes him retreat. So here is saying you that when on a journey to Allah azza wa jal, the strength is the strength in the heart of the heart. This is what he said later, we'll call Butina Maya siru Illa Hibiya komati How do you march towards Allah azza wa jal? How do you do all the things that you do? Your the basic string

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

that you have is not the strength of the body, but it's the strength of

00:14:44--> 00:14:48

the heart. It's the strength of the heart. That's why you pray.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

Right? It's not because of the body because you may not have any power in your body but you could still pray and those who are healthy but do not pray. Why don't they do

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

Why don't they pray? The heart is weak. So you give what you give and you stay away from what you stay away from, based on the strength of the heart is just like the battery in the car or the engine, whatever works best in this analogy. If it's not there, then it's just a frame. It's just a body. So he says, you're marching towards Allah azza wa jal because of the strength that you have on the inside. That's why people could do jihad. Right and not care about losing their life. Why? The most precious thing that you have is your life. How could you give it away is the hardest strong so he says what do sins do then that is very dangerous is that it weakens this heart weakens its

00:15:42--> 00:16:14

resolve. So it doesn't walk it stops or it retreats for them boo. Yeah, dribble was a lawyer Octo ser una cosa Tala. Now. So I'll call or the heart moves to Allah azza wa jal, because of that strength that it has, if it is sick with sins, that power of of it will not move him. And if it is, if it loses all of that power, it's difficult for him to regain that strength again, right?

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

For them will enable me to call the volume, read the homework done, how we felt, oh, you're a fool for whatever, whatever. But he says so the heart because of sin, either will die. So that's the first possibility sin can kill the heart, or we'll make him severely sick, or we'll make him or will debilitate the heart we can it can considerably had they into here lawful until the weakness of the heart leaves the person into these eight things that the prophets of Allah Allah who was LM had sought refuge from. So there's a Hadith of Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam where he said Allahumma in Nia will be coming and Samuel has done well at the old castle will Jugni will bottled water dolla

00:16:59--> 00:17:46

Dini will call it water better region, Z Allah I seek Your protection from him and he doesn't worry and sorrow, inability and laziness, cowardice and stinginess, the heaviness of debt and the overpowering of men. So he says sin, if it's continuously committed, eventually leads to those eight that the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam had sought refuge from. And then he spends a few paragraphs here explaining that hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And it's interesting. It's interesting, because it does teach you something and I will share with you Inshallah, what he said, were to teach us something about the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu

00:17:46--> 00:18:07

was Salam, which is that it has eloquence, it has intention, it's had meaning it is an area, you know, how the Quran when you study it, beyond simply just reading the words and getting just the general meaning. But when you really study the idea or study the Surah

00:18:08--> 00:18:15

it becomes or it manifests the divine power and ability.

00:18:16--> 00:18:44

Behind those verses behind those IR mini you see eloquence in them, you see a mere miraculous nature, and in the composition of those words, you understand what I'm talking about. So there is what they call it the IGs when you study the Quran, okay, that it's a miracle you could see it from the choice of words for what it says of how it says it, that it's called only could have been Allah azza wa jal who's behind it. So it demonstrates

00:18:45--> 00:19:11

that it is from Allah xuejun. The hadith when studied, right, will also point to the eloquence of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and that behind these words, are divine teachings. Because it's not just simply here is not just simply random things that the prophets of Allah sent them have weaved together and say, Oh, the biller from this and this and this and this and this. He says, no, no him says they're related.

00:19:12--> 00:19:22

And he wouldn't think about it when you're just reading the headache. He says they're related. So the first two, sorrow and worry, he says that's about the heart.

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

The second two, I just Wilkinson, in ability and laziness as that's about the body. Let's take the first four. And then we come to the second last four. So he says, in the heart, if you are suffering, you either suffer because of his sadness about the past or worrying about the future, you're trapped between the two. So in the present right now, if you are miserable, you're miserable because one of those two things, a sad past or an unpredictable future that worries you. So hey,

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

So he sought Allah's refuge from that, so that the heart is not troubled because of this.

00:20:06--> 00:20:54

It says then the body, he says the body if a person wants to do something, right, something beneficial, an act of righteousness and piety. Either he is unable he can't do it. I can pray, I can get Zika I can travel to head unable, or he's able but Leesy these are the possibilities you are able or not. If you're unable, then you're unable or if you're able, but you're not doing it then you're what? Lazy. See, he sought protection from Allah azza wa jal from those two things, first for the body, first for the heart, and then for the body. And then he says, well, Jube Newell Boucle, cowardice and stinginess, this relates to if you want to benefit others. If you want to do good

00:20:54--> 00:21:01

deeds, what could stop you? So if you want to do it financially, what stops you is being stingy.

00:21:03--> 00:21:25

So if you want to benefit people with your money, you want to benefit yourself by spending it for Allah sake. What stops you that you're a miser, you don't want to spend money, you want to keep it to yourself? What prevents you from doing good things with your body? If you're a coward, you're afraid they'll hurt me. They'll say bad things about me. Obviously, this is clear in jihad.

00:21:26--> 00:21:35

So those things stop you from doing good things. This is how you relate to people, what you give to them. How about how they relate to you.

00:21:37--> 00:21:50

Hear me in ways that displays you. He says, Well dolla, adeiny Wah letter, but to reach out he says the heaviness of debt and the overpowering of men. It says if you're being overpowered,

00:21:52--> 00:22:14

rightfully is because of your debt, you can do because people want from you so you're overpowered because of it. Or you are overpowered unjustly. That is what the overpowering of men, people compel you to do things or not to do things, so you're crippled you can't act. So he's saying Rahmatullahi Allah is sin brings all of this

00:22:15--> 00:22:43

brings sorrow, sadness, and worry to your heart, and you can deal with it. It brings also, what was the second inability and laziness. So you become lazy, you don't want to do good things, even though you can until eventually it leads to your own inability to do good things. And then he said, Well, juvenile world booklet makes you a miser and too afraid to do what benefits you and finally it leads to death to a caliber to return.

00:22:45--> 00:22:53

So all of this comes together, why is a sin lease to it? And if that means if you want all this to be lifted? What do you do?

00:22:54--> 00:23:34

You go back to Allah azza wa jal, right, and you ask for his support, and you repent until all of these go away. So that hadith, right, and how all of these things are paired together, and how they could lead actually to each other, is something that tells you that they were chosen from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam to convey a meaning beyond just pairing? A few words, right. So he said that as the noblemen afford as well as the injury, but he had a third man, your sins are of the strongest causes that ring these eight things, as well as being the causes that bring the following. And he says, gehele Bella II, that's another Hadith, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam where he

00:23:34--> 00:23:42

said you Allah, I seek Your protection from gehele Bella, this is a overpowering or a heavy affliction.

00:23:43--> 00:23:59

A biller that reaches that exhausts you and affliction that exhausts you say Allah I seek protection from that. And that exhaustion could be because that that affliction is big or you are not ready to deal with it.

00:24:01--> 00:24:08

Because Allah azza wa jal, right doesn't give you more than you can handle. Right? So what is the failure come from?

00:24:10--> 00:24:34

Not from the biller, not from the affliction itself, because it's not bigger than you, but from our inability to deal with it. That's why That's why we can bear it. Now, you know, that and, by the way, maybe all of us have, have felt that, you know, Allah, I can't handle this as too much for me, right? I can't handle this, or Yeah, it's too much for me, was it that there was too much or that you are a done woman too weak to handle it?

00:24:36--> 00:24:53

I have to think about it. Because people will think Allah said in the Quran that he will not give people more than they can bear and this is more than I can bear. Right? Have you heard that? Or you felt it? This is more than I can bear? Is it that it is more than you can bear or that you are not ready for it?

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

You have the ability, but you have not read it yourself for it. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam he is that that

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Heavy affliction is at Allah's refuge one where the rocky Shaka and from misery to overtake me, but at the top of misery was so ill called up and for the evil that comes from a decree

00:25:14--> 00:25:22

and if scholars have said he says not that Allah's decree is evil, it's never evil, but the consequence of it and how to what you do with it could be

00:25:23--> 00:25:42

so I seek Allah's protection from that. So something happens and I react to it badly and that becomes so All right. So whatever is decreed make it your Allah azza wa jal you know, good for me, well shamatha till adda and enemies, my enemies being joyful at my misery.

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

So that is an another affliction.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

So a person could have enemies.

00:25:50--> 00:26:02

And of course, I mean in front of your enemy. And typically that's this should be the case you would hide your mistakes and you would hide your weakness, because what you want is you don't want them to

00:26:04--> 00:26:41

be happy because of your pain, because that's another affliction. Those who dislike you see that you're in pain and experienced some misfortune. They gloat because of it. And they spread that happiness among others who would share the same sentiment, see what happened to him see this and see that so that's the misery on top of misery. So the profit that is Salatu was Salam. He said, Don't let my enemies glow. Don't let my enemies be joyful at my misfortune. Right? So that's something that Allah that Allah azza wa jal should protect us from, and he's also

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

and of the

00:26:44--> 00:27:29

greatest things that bring also and this is the following is also a Hadith of the Prophet alayhi. Salatu was Salam of things. They see Allah protect me from so zolina I'm Allah, the removal of the Name of Allah azza wa jal, so Aloha mana or the becoming somebody near emetic, with the holy ifI attic or Fujairah Tinicum attico Jamia is this hadith. So Allah azza wa jal isql reduction from the removal or the end of your net Amma and the change of my well being or the change of the well being I'm experiencing that's the mafia. Well for JT opha Tina Qmatic Overwatch, it necrotic your sudden punishment. What Jamia is a heartache and all of your anger.

00:27:31--> 00:27:49

So that Hadith also tells you or teaches you a few things. One is that when you say Allah, I'm seeking your refuge from the end of your nema. You understand that NEMA is not promised whatever NEMA you have so how do you keep it?

00:27:50--> 00:28:34

One way is by asking Allah Allah, I seek a refuge from an end to that NEMA make me of those who continue to enjoy that Nemo of yours Don't Don't stop it. So but what stops at what AIDS in the stopping of the neuroma and he will talk about it Inshallah, I think yep. Next, what AIDS in solving that NEMA sin. Right? So so he says sin leads to the end of neon, to how will you feel at the end of the world well being? See you, you're healthy, you are safe, you're employed. You have a happy family. You have this you have that and then the mafia goes where did that Aafia goes, you are now sick, you're divorced. I'm not blaming you, by the way, if you're sick and you're divorced, I'm just

00:28:34--> 00:28:43

saying that how there's a Alfia and it goes, right. So you say to yourself, Okay, where did this Afia goes so I could lose it.

00:28:44--> 00:28:53

Right so you seek Allah's protection from losing it? Or Bucha Athena Qmatic you certain punishment, right? Because that certain punishment doesn't allow you to repent.

00:28:54--> 00:29:03

Right to go back to do good things to stop it, but it's all of a sudden, right? Which me is a hot topic and all the things that make you angry.

00:29:05--> 00:29:42

So what follows a says women Oh, Colbert is you know, just kind of to connect it to what he just said or he said, from the punishment of sin is that they remove blessings and they bring Allah's punishment. Khalifa Masada Daniel Abdeen Mattoon Illa we then been with 100 behenic mattoni la vie them. So an MS is never taken away from a servant, except because of a sin and a punishment does not visit a servant except because of his sin. As I don't even know I'll be talking about the Allahu Anhu said or others have said, Men is Allah on Ellerbee them no affliction descends except because of a sin and it's not taken away except because of a repentance.

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

So you know that if something bad happens to you individually or happens to the community or what happens to the OMA what what should be the first thing that we should do? The repentance, the foreign repentance and the Don't be you know occupied by Is this because of sin or is it not?

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

Because of sin and if it's because of sin, which sin and it says, Are they sinners? Or are we the sinners, everybody is a sinner. Everybody is a sinner, like, we're not at the level of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal where you can just point out one sin or two and say, aha, this because of this, otherwise, I'm so clean. Everybody is a sinner, even Subhanallah sometimes when we pray, we are sinning. Because is it for Allah? Or is it for somebody else got what I'm saying. So you can't You're not exonerated. So when something bad happens to the Ummah and you want to solve it, and you like what's happening today, you want to solve it and you don't know what to do. One of the first

00:30:36--> 00:30:45

thing that you should do is repent, said I'm going to stop sinning so be if it's happening, because collectively we are bad, I'm not going to be part of that bad.

00:30:46--> 00:30:54

So I'll stop this haram and this haram and that haram. That's the primary thing that should be done. Because if all of us do this,

00:30:56--> 00:31:35

then Allah has it. We'll look at that and then lift that ordeal. I mean, sooner or later is going to go away, but we will hasten the lifting of that or d will be a reason for it to be taken away. So what out of your Ellerbee Toba, as Allah said, well, ma sobre como si but in Febi, my Casa de como ella one Kathy, he says whatever calamity Whatever hardship comes your way. It's because of what you have done on Allah forgives a lot. And Allah azza wa jal, he said that he can be an Allah Allah Mia Komori urine, yeah, Metta namaha, calm in Hatha Yoga eunomia and fusi him that is so because Allah was not going to change a NEMA that he had blessed the people with until they've changed what is in

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

themselves. So he says ignore him.

00:31:39--> 00:31:46

He says Allah azza wa jal says that he does not change any atma that he had given to anyone until they be the people who will change this.

00:31:48--> 00:32:18

Until and they be the people who will change within themselves. Then Allah azza wa jal for your euro to Allah He must say it he was chakra Hibiki free. So when you change Allah is disobedience to Allah is obedience or disobedience. And Allah is gratitude with Cofer and the Cofer is the opposite of sugar. So you change Allah's gratitude to ingratitude and you change what pleases Allah to a displeases Allah, Allah will change that net and will take it away. So he says, for either the year of the year Ali,

00:32:20--> 00:32:25

either you remember this, try to remember that if he changes, it will be changed for him.

00:32:26--> 00:32:48

If he changes it, meaning if you have something and it's good, and you change, Allah will change it. Right Jezza and we forgot, an adequate recompense, an adequate response on our robocopy the lambing will not be able to elaborate Allah azza wa jal is not unjust with his servants. So he says, if he changes

00:32:50--> 00:32:55

if he changes that sin into obedience, Allah azza wa jal removes the punishment and brings

00:32:57--> 00:33:03

well being and removes humility, humiliation and brings honor. And he repeats that I again

00:33:05--> 00:33:52

and he says when he bought the authorial Isla here, in one of the narrations, and they again, they don't need to be authentic, they don't need to be sun is just I mean, in terms of narration, right in terms of chain, they just need to be sound in terms of meaning. So it is reported that Allah azza wa jal have said holla is that you are Jalali I swear bye bye bye bye might and majesty lie Hakuna abdomen RBD Adama are heavy says no servant of my does what I love, and then moves to what I hate, except that I will move from what he loves to what he hates. So no servant of Mine follows what I love, and then leaves it for what I hate, then I will move from what he loves to what he hates, and

00:33:52--> 00:34:04

no servant of Mine does what I hate and then move to what I love, except that I will move from what he hates to what he loves. So you want Allah azza wa jal to do what you love. You do what he loves.

00:34:05--> 00:34:35

Right? Is that easy enough? Right? At least to say, that's easy enough to say Allah give me Allah give me Allah gave me and it's not that Allah Who wants things from you for him? But Allah would say then, based on this, what are you doing then? For me? But you want this, say Allah, don't let it be this change it to that. Be where I love, do what I love, so that Allah is saying, then what are you doing then? Give me what I love. I'll give you what you love.

00:34:36--> 00:34:43

But you just simply sit and ask without change. You may or not, you may get it but you may not get it.

00:34:45--> 00:34:53

But if you want something from Allah azza wa jal in addition to that dua, you gotta change. So find the bad things you're doing and stop them.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And the beautiful thing that Allah Zhou did actually sends you reminders

00:35:01--> 00:35:14

Right sends you reminders to wake you up. Typically, right the punishment is not sudden, but he should kind of like sends you like signals. Right signals. So if you're not feeling right

00:35:15--> 00:35:41

or if he becomes sick, or you're simply agitated all the time or bored all the time, are you starting to experience trouble here trouble here trouble, there's something, at least something that Allah sends to remind you that you're really not okay. So wake up, your kid starts acting up your wife doesn't like this, you don't like your what something happens that there has to be something that Allah kind of

00:35:42--> 00:36:00

brings to your life to wake you up. And if you continue to be blind, then more and more trouble until that final calamity hits. But here, if you want Allah to give you what you love, then you have to give Allah azza wa jal what he loves. And both of them actually are for your sake. You are the winner. Allah does not get anything from you.

00:36:02--> 00:36:19

He says, and then some kind of verses of poetry. I'm just translate them. He says, well, a cinephile, he says, the poet have said it. And he said it well, when he said, if you're experiencing a net amount, so guarded, because sins will remove now, and then surround it

00:36:21--> 00:37:05

or protect it with Allah's obedience, because Allah is Swift to punish, and beware of injustice as much as you can, because injustice when committed against people, is incredibly devastating, and traveled with your heart between or among creation among people, so that you will see the consequence of those who committed injustice. These are their homes after them, witnesses against them, and they are witnesses that are honest. And there was nothing that harmed them more than injustice. And that's the thing that destroyed them. And they left behind a lot of gardens and a lot of palaces, and more and greater things. But they were dipped in hellfire or will be thrown to and

00:37:05--> 00:37:29

burned in hellfire, and all the all the joy that they had all the blessings that they had had passed away. And it seemed to them like it was a dream. Right? That's what he's saying, says look at those who have committed all that injustice, look at the ruins and their palaces and what happened to them. They left it all behind. They are in hellfire and all that they have experience. It seems as if it was a dream

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

thing about anything that you've experienced that pleased you a year ago.

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

There's a different than a dream.

00:37:39--> 00:38:14

You can say to yourself, maybe I've dreamt it. There's nothing stays of it except a memory. And that's what stays of a dream, a memory and some sensation. That's it, some emotions, but where's the thing itself is gone. So as he's saying that if you're really sacrificing Allah as noted for a joy that joy, five years from now, it will be just a memory and a sensation that you just remember, nothing more. But in reality, you are burdened with the consequence of that sin until you meet Allah azza wa jal or you repent from it. So he's saying if you have a NEMA protected

00:38:15--> 00:38:26

and guarded with Allah's obedience, because if not, then it can be taken away from right. And if it's taken away from you, a don't complain.

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

Because Allah warned you, right?

00:38:30--> 00:39:10

It's right there in the Quran. So any it's not anyone's fault. Yeah, no except yours if you're not reading it. How could Allah do this to me? Why did he not send it to you? He told you to read the Quran. It's right there. The directions are right there to Allah xojo to life right there. What's going to happen to you is right there, how come you're not reading it? So why are you surprised when it happens? Allah declare it clearly announced it. So why are you surprised? So don't blame Allah azza wa jal for it because he had already told you by the way, when he does it, it's for you, not against you. When he takes it from you, and if you can just change change that mindset.

00:39:11--> 00:39:30

Right and Allah is not against you, he's doing it for you. You know how to deal with this problem. Rather than complain about it you say Oh, Allah has done once better things for me that's why he's doing this. So you can take this and it can empower you to come closer to Allah as of today rather than complain. Right?

00:39:32--> 00:39:59

And he says woman will call birdie her and this is an interesting one he says My Allah subhana homea rotary will help if you call Bill Asif Allah Tara, who in the heart if and moreover, he says, the punishment of that sin is what Allah throws into or deposits into the heart of the sinner of terror and fear. You always find them afraid. Like the one the sinner, you will always find them afraid. Okay? Terrified alarm. He says for him not

00:40:00--> 00:40:21

Florida has no law he loves them. He says obedience is like this grades for Chris. Divine fortress. Right? When I say divine I mean that. It's done by the Divine Right, right. That's what I mean by. So it is this divine fortress that so if you enter this fortress, you will be safe safe in the earth, Hera and safe in the dunya.

00:40:22--> 00:40:23

Because in the earth here are

00:40:25--> 00:40:54

you supposed to go where? Jana, but in the dunya, you will feel that you're under Allah's protection and you are under Allah's protection if you are a believer, so if you are a believer, you enter that fortress, and Allah is protecting you, and you feel that protection inwardly and outwardly. And the most important part of it is inwardly or you feel inwardly that Allah is with me, I can rely on him, I can trust him, I can call on Him, and He will assist me. Right as they say, I have a backing.

00:40:56--> 00:41:39

I have a supporter who is your supporter, because as long as you believe that you have a supporter, you're fine. You're not afraid, you know how the kids are, Oh, my I have my parents next to me. If the parents are net next, I are vulnerable, you're exposed. But if your father is next to you, you could be brave, because he will take care of you. Right? So the same thing, right? If you believe if you know Allah is right there taking care of you. What could terrify you. But if Allah is not there, then you have abandoned him. And he let go of you. Hello, I'm in Colorado and Haha, thought we had Maha from equally journey. It says if you leave that for Chris, you'll be terrified from every

00:41:39--> 00:41:51

direction. And the things that provided you security before or what may be security before becomes the thing that you fear becomes the opposite. Right?

00:41:52--> 00:42:03

I'm sorry, from an ultra Allah let me just follow his phrasing, the one who obeys Allah azza wa jal, his fears turn into securities. And the one who disobeyed Allah asserted his securities turned into fear.

00:42:04--> 00:42:13

The thing that gave him security becomes the thing that he's afraid of. So maybe he thinks, let's say, my kids will take care of me.

00:42:15--> 00:42:19

That's the security then the kids turn against him. And they become enemies of him.

00:42:21--> 00:43:04

Right, or my wife or my spouse will take care of me. And that becomes what is great source of pain and fear. Whatever he relied on, becomes the thing that harasses him and disrupts him. But the believer, on the other hand, Allah will turn his enemies either protects him from the enemy, or turn the enemy into a friend. So the thing that used to terrify him or supposed to terrify him becomes an ally or becomes what a source of security. He says, you will find you'll always find or you mostly will find the center his heart, as if it's between the birds of the wings of a bird. If the wind moves the door, he says somebody came to get me kind of like, just naturally, you've done something

00:43:04--> 00:43:45

wrong. Okay. And it's not just simply because the police are after you. Right. So you think, Oh, they came? No, no, anything will terrify you. Right. Haida? autolab. If he hears footsteps a, he says, this is coming my way. Somebody's going to come to do this. And that to me? Yes. I wonder Coolessay Hatena. He believes that every loud cry is against him. Every loud noise is something coming to get him every wrong thing is coming in his way. You know, like when you read the newspaper? I don't know if you read newspapers, oh, you just go online and read the feed. This is happening. So there's a possibility of a virus or an economic collapse or this or this or this? So

00:43:45--> 00:44:05

one who reads that? And he's not protected by Allah azza wa jal is demolished by all of this. If this doesn't get me then this and if not, then this. Where will I go? So he's constantly innately terrified because there is no protection. So he believes always that this is coming and that is coming and that is coming and that will get me.

00:44:06--> 00:44:50

So there is no protection from Allah azza wa jal, where as the person who believes in Allah azza wa jal, Kula, you see even in the market of Allah Allah, the only thing that will come our way is what Allah has written for us. So he knows he's assured that if it's written, only then will it happen and only how Allah wants it to take place will it take place and then we have Allah support then we have Allah support then from uncuff Allah Allah, Muhammad Quli che? He says, If you fear Allah azza wa jal Allah who will give you security from everything. Woman la musica de la ha for whom in coalition and one who is not afraid of Allah azza wa jal, he will feel everything. So no Kareem says

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

be the father Allah I think it's a no claim who said it be the hot Allahu Binah nursing with Quito mood holy goo. And then Maha with all the drama filled Karani. He says

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

such Allah decreed from the time of creation, that fear and criminality are coupled. If you are a criminal, if you commit a sin is always coupled with fear. Right?

00:45:15--> 00:45:38

So, it's interesting you know, Allah azza wa jal says, in the methodical Bucha Utah new home with Alia who further to whom will have only encounter more money. It says they should this is the shaytaan trying to terrify the Olia of Allah azza wa jal, so do not fear them and fear me if you have Iman. So the shaytaan will always try to terrify you.

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

And the power of the shaytaan will be magnified when you fear him.

00:45:47--> 00:45:53

You know, the power of the shaytaan the physical harm of the shaytaan will be magnified when you're afraid of them.

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

Because you're not afraid of Allah azza wa jal

00:45:58--> 00:46:04

why no cannery jello Meenal INSIA Oh, they're gonna be really mean at Geneva do hombre haka.

00:46:05--> 00:46:10

Right. There was this interesting, right in Surah Telegin. I know you guys love gin stories, right?

00:46:11--> 00:46:17

It's not origin stories is out there in the tafsir. But the Arabs, right when they would go to into a valley.

00:46:18--> 00:46:36

And the jinn would be afraid of the ins, you know that. So like if you know, a travelers from, you know, humans, and they come in, they settled in a valley, I mean, they just camp in a valley. And some Jen have inhabited that data when they see the humans, they withdrawn. They're afraid of them.

00:46:38--> 00:47:06

And now the INS who are disbelievers and they know don't know any better. They thought to themselves if we want to be protected from the jinn, because that's what their minds told them to do. We need to seek their protection. Although the law you didn't know, but the jinn were afraid of them. So when they go to that valley, they say we seek the protection of the chief of that valley from any harm. So when the jinn saw that the INS were afraid of them, they harassed them more.

00:47:08--> 00:47:36

The man when they saw that they so hey, we were afraid of them, they were afraid of us, they harassed them even more. But if you're not afraid, not foolishly, unafraid, because I'm just gonna go into a dark room and call them to come to me, I don't I'm not I don't care, that's stupid. But if you're, if you don't fear them, because you fear Allah Zoda they'll fear you. And that's because of Allah sphere. Right? So, we will stop here in sha Allah, so

00:47:37--> 00:48:02

kind of, it's a good thing to remember that you don't need to fear people. Fear Allah, Allah, and Allah will take care of people right for you. And that all much of the fear that we have in our hearts from people, it just simply our own, you know, kind of shortcomings or inability to reckon with the fact that Allah has control over them not that they have control over what they can do to us.

00:48:04--> 00:48:14

So we'll stop here in Charlotte and Bill alameen and see let me know if you have anything questions and shall let's let's start with questions and if you have comments, we'll leave them to the end inshallah.

00:48:20--> 00:48:21

Basketball

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

So,

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

I'm trying to purify on the background

00:48:37--> 00:48:38

include

00:48:39--> 00:48:40

this particular

00:48:43--> 00:48:44

person.

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

This is the conclusion.

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

This is why

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

today we're talking about

00:49:07--> 00:49:12

to all of these elections, okay. So your question is that when it came to the eight

00:49:15--> 00:49:46

things that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam asked for protection from sorrow and worry or sadness and worry, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. So, the question of the brother is this, how did it nucleon Rahim? Allah kind of reached the conclusion that this is connected to sin, right. So, what I can say to Allah Adam, is that, based on the fact which is that kind of the idea that preceded, which is that every calamity and very discomfort, any

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

affliction of any sort right must be caused or traced back to sin. So, a person is facing sorrow and sadness and fear

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

Using anxiety, it must be because of a decrease in emotion.

00:50:05--> 00:50:46

Because if a person had enough emotion, then you will not be worried about the future. And you're not going to be sad about the past because you know that Allah azza wa jal takes care of this and he takes care of that. So if we say that it's a lack of iman, and the thing that brings Iman down and puts a distance between you and Allah, as Odin is sin itself, then he says sin must lead to that. And the same thing with laziness, so laziness and Salah and giving sadaqa and performing anything because sin will impede you and delay you in obeying Allah azza wa jal so when you to look at all of it, he'll say that all of these things are affliction that a Prophet sallallaahu Salam wanted

00:50:46--> 00:50:55

protection from and if it's an affliction, it all can go back to sin. So, that is what I think his background will love

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

to explanation for

00:51:04--> 00:51:07

our protection against

00:51:09--> 00:51:11

the benefit please see

00:51:12--> 00:51:13

me

00:51:18--> 00:51:18

How could

00:51:19--> 00:51:20

that

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

be could be or

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

when he was told that

00:51:30--> 00:51:30

another time

00:51:32--> 00:51:33

he

00:51:36--> 00:51:40

could be greetings to you another one.

00:51:43--> 00:51:47

The only to have that had at least one chapter for him.

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

Now No, no

00:51:53--> 00:52:06

no. So the Buddha had two questions The first is that in the door of the Prophet sallahu wa salam in one of the Hadith see says what Oh, they'll be coming. And I seek protection

00:52:09--> 00:52:47

from any from you from you, like protect me from you, right I seek protection from you. Yeah, and Allah protect me from you. Right? Yeah. So yeah, and yet Allah protect me from you. So he says, how does that work? And that makes sense right? If you want to and just unpack it a little bit. So punishment comes from Allah xojo and forgiveness comes from Allah zodion So yeah, Allah protect me from you meaning Give me your forgiveness and mercy and protect me from your punishment and anger wow oh they'll be coming. Because it was a beautiful thing about this is that you know that everything comes from him

00:52:51--> 00:53:06

Oh no, no. Oh, there we go. He says that oh, the bigger we associate that with things that we want to run run away from bad things so AC Allah protect me from you. Okay, but you protect me from you. So how come? Because if you think about

00:53:07--> 00:53:46

the punishment of Allah azza wa jal, right as fit for the aggressors. It's not a bad thing. Any hyperbola as the volley mean, punishing the aggressors is not a bad thing. But it's a bad thing if I'm the aggressor, because I'm receiving punishment, but in itself is not bad. So if am I saying yeah, Allah this, if it were to come to me would be bad for me, protect me from it. Okay, from you. So Allah forgives you. So it's not that Allah's actions are bad, but when it comes to your way, it becomes bad because it's bad for you. That's the best that I can give inshallah.

00:53:47--> 00:53:57

The other questions you said, is it Omar, the Allah I know how could he fear hypocrisy, and the Prophet told him he'll be in Jannah told him that he's a shahid, all this and that, in fact, when a person

00:53:59--> 00:54:21

and shaytaan right runs away from Omar so how could he think that he could ever have hypocrisy? That's where people at that level, right are that sensitive to the possibility that they could lose this. It's not that they disbelieve in the promise of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, they believe in it. But he always could say to himself, right, because he's so close to Allah azza wa jal. I'm not worthy.

00:54:22--> 00:54:41

Right? I'm not worthy. I'm not good enough, right? Because those people will see the Majesty of Allah azza wa jal, and their own shortcomings that whatever they do is not enough. So what if I'm not worthy? What if Allah has just kind of cast me away? So that when you could reach that level of fear, then you kit?

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

Yeah, you could say what if I'm a hypocrite, what is this? What is this so that you played with Allah azza wa jal saved me from disbelief and saved me from hypocrisy, but at the same time, right when you when that fear declines, you are aware of the other things that Allah has said and promised you, but sometimes the fear

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

increases to a degree where you want that assurance and you want that protection because, you know, what if you could ask yourself, well, I hope that answers it, or at least helps us and

00:55:16--> 00:55:57

yeah, he said, out of humility and humbleness, that's, that's a possibility. But I think also that there is also fear, that's actually fear. Any of you have the Sahaba some of the Sahaba Annie, we've mentioned this loudly to Anisha Jarrah trying to avoid and the Buddha said, I wish that I was a tree there was just cut down to cut down on burned or cut down and used in that set. So you could reach that level of fear of Allah as you wish that you were nothing right? I wish I was never alive, but then it would go down. And then you would you understand what the problem Allah has promised you but there's always that fear and it just belongs to those that the highest realms, right and the higher

00:55:57--> 00:56:00

person claims the more that they'll understand that

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

as

00:56:13--> 00:56:15

well also, masala mostly but then

00:56:20--> 00:56:21

there's also these

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

open up that

00:56:27--> 00:56:28

Masaba.

00:56:30--> 00:57:08

Understand this correctly. So I mean, so I mean, the the question of the brother here is that there are some eyes and some Hadith that say that everything is predestined, and everything is written down. That's that's your main point. And at the same time, also you saying that, as we said here, that everything that every affliction that descends is because of the sins that we have earned and Allah azza wa jal forgives Allah. So it's predestined, and because of what we have learned, how do you reconcile that so he does that. So there is no challah difficulty and understanding both at the same time because though it is pre destined, it is in response to what you have done because Allah

00:57:08--> 00:57:47

azza wa jal way, way way. I mean, Allah azza wa jal has no knowledge has no beginning, but the writing down 50,000 years before the creation of this universe, is written down, that you will do this and do this and do this. And as a consequence, you will receive this and this and that. So it's written down, so it's well known. And then you will be born and you will do these things and you will choose these things and you will do them and receive the consequences of what Allah had written for you because of what you have done. So no contradiction between them. Allah did write them down, but you choose them. And because you chose them, you'll see received the fate or the rewards that

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

Allah has written and had promised.

00:57:52--> 00:57:52

Something

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

genuine,

00:57:59--> 00:58:00

was going to happen anyway.

00:58:04--> 00:58:45

Definitely, definitely, that you can you could never change Allah's destiny. But you do not know Allah's Destiny until you do it. So that's the thing, for instance, am I am I going to live in this country or not? We have no knowledge of what Allah had written for you, when you do it, and it's a reality, you know, it's written, right? And then you will know that you could not have changed it. So it's a very delicate, balanced understanding and you take it as it is, Inshallah, you don't need to investigate it further. And I hope it doesn't cause you confusion, you just say, Allah knew about it. Allah wrote this and it happens according to the will of Allah azza wa jal. If that's fine, then

00:58:45--> 00:59:14

you don't need any more in shall we, yeah. I mean, just a couple of questions here and then we'll leave in sha Allah. How does one address own fear that we know something is so pleasing to Allah to do such as marriage, we have done all what it takes to decide that what is good to proceed in. So how does one address on fear that we know something is so if something is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal, but you have some hesitations, you have some fear, you have some anxiety,

00:59:15--> 00:59:39

do your job, right? Do your job, pray or suhara Make your DUA and interest Allah as of today, He will guide you, and you don't control the future. So don't worry about what's going to happen in the future. You could decide the right thing you could decide the wrong thing. You could decide the wrong thing for the record reasons. Yeah, Allah will teach you something because of that decision. So you don't have to worry about it. So so so much.

00:59:40--> 00:59:58

So do your homework. Then what do ah secara done. What else? Okay, the left the rest is left to Allah azza wa jal, right so don't try to carry the burden of what's going to happen next. I have to guard against every predicament mistake

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

wrong wrong step good step you can't control the future just give it to Allah is

01:00:06--> 01:00:18

what causes a man to increase and decrease even when you don't realize what is decreasing the man and staying away from since what causes the man to increase and decrease that's that's a an entire book an entire lecture right.

01:00:19--> 01:00:57

But there's just what's going to come up came to mind right now since decrease Eman and laferla decrease email. So if you commit a sin that displays Allah anger him, Eman will decrease. But the blood flow when you stray away, you're not thinking about him subhanaw taala. So your thought has been consumed by the dunya you're worried about it, you just want to eat, drink sleep by travel that said it's just about the dunya the earth Eros space is shrinking and shrinking in your life. There is no space for the Quran. There's no space for Salah or if you do it, you just do it very quickly just to finish it, there is no dhikr of Allah as just so you shrink the space that belongs to Allah

01:00:57--> 01:01:34

and you maximize the space that belongs to the dunya that destroys your iman even if you're doing the basics your iman will not be strong. And it's not typically the case that you will be able to resist temptations of sin if you're in a state of hafla. So if you're connected to Allah azza wa jal on multi levels, so you do your Salah with intention, you read the Quran, you do dua, there is dhikr you come to the masjid, there's heart of others learning, you will be able to resist temptations and sins in the law. But there are many causes to increase Eman and decrease them. If you caught a person doing sin, how should we address and guide this person to his consciousness, where he is not

01:01:34--> 01:02:15

realizing it to guide him to true sincere repentance. If you caught him doing in a committing a sin, conceal it, first of all, you don't go public with it. And then tell him that whatever advice you want to give to them, it's coming out of a care and concern, right? It's not of it's not because you want to lecture and it's not because you're better than him. But I want Allah azza wa jal to forgive you and to assist you and you for you to enter Jannah I want for you what I want for myself. And then think about yourself, what would you want people to do? If they find that you've done something wrong? You do that? You guide them, fill up them how to conquer this and do it with compassion

01:02:15--> 01:02:55

because anyone who's committing a sin is committing a sin because they're helpless in front of it. So just empower them. And when I say empower them, I don't want to use like a western concept empower the meaning that by Allah azza wa jal to make them more powerful by relying on Allah as urgent, right? So this is how you can be a powerful Muslim. How will you stand in your Salah and ask Allah azza wa jal for support stay away from the Haram do the opposite of what the shaytaan is asking you to do? Have good friends, feed on things that nourish you Islamically you know, lectures, books, attending the masjid, traveling for Umrah any things that will nourish you Islamically that

01:02:55--> 01:03:05

will give you strength and power. So you guide them to that and away from that sin and then you'd be helping them and you do it for Allah sake and make dua for them. Continue to make dua for them.

01:03:06--> 01:03:09

Fair inshallah. Should we stop for tonight?

01:03:11--> 01:03:19
