May He send greetings and salutations that are complete and everlasting upon the best of his creation, homicidal allottee who was sent to me perfect his rank and elevate his station for he taught us what we did not know. And he gave and he gave and he gave because he loved us. So ALLAH SubhanA data says in the Quran, Oh you who believe your Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not

So Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, Verily Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah Subhana Allah data that says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam.

00:01:59--> 00:02:26

or Allah says, Fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and speak the truth he will correct for your deeds and forgive you your sins and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger than they are indeed victorious. As to proceed, every single one of us has problems. And the topic of this video is called How to live properly how to live problem free or desiring to live problem free. Allah Subhana Allah tells us in sorbitol Bennett,

00:02:27--> 00:03:14

he swears by a number of things. And when you're noticing Allah subhanaw taala that's oath in the Quran, the objective of every oath, every oath, every custom, is what's called Joab. Wilkerson, the thing that you are directing your attention to swearing to what you are swearing to the truthfulness of so when I say I swear to God, I wasn't there on Tuesday. I am making that oath by Allah. But the point isn't that in and of itself, the point is, what are you swearing to that I was not there or that I was there or whatever it is, you're directing attention to the truthfulness of a statement. So when Allah subhanaw taala is swearing in the Quran? What we should be looking for is what is

00:03:14--> 00:03:47

Allah swearing? Not just by but what is Allah swearing to the truth of and so Allah Subhana Allah says, A Shamcey Aloha chlamydia that Allah who inherited that gelato Lady Di SHA, Allah swears by 11 things until he says, but after Hamza Cobham and DISA, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is swearing by all of these things, the sun and the moon in the start to the to the notion that the one who purifies their soul is the one who's successful and the one who doesn't, is at loss. in solitude, Bella, Allah says

00:03:48--> 00:04:20

that oxygen will be handled better I swear by this town, the town of Makkah, want to help them behaving better and O Muhammad, the town of Mecca is famously known as the Haram there are things there that are haram everywhere. That might be permissible outside they are haram in the city of Mecca. They are haram within the confines of the haram. However, Allah subhanaw taala makes an exception for Rasulullah saw the light is on the day of the conquest of Makkah, he says will enter hidden behind them but it is permissible for you oh Muhammad Sallallahu they have said look.

00:04:21--> 00:04:40

Well, while he didn't wanna well it and Allah swears to the truthfulness or Allah subhana diatas swears by Adam and his progeny. He swears by Adam and his progeny. What is Allah directing our attention to he says, Look at the Halacha Al Insana fee cabinet. We've created man to be in a state of problems.

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

So the answer to living problem free is that it's not going to happen.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

If you go and you interview a seven year old or one of our six year olds here in the masjid five year old, 10 year old you go talk to your kids, are they problem free? You look back at your own childhood as if it was, but there were bullies in school. They were fun

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

It's there was homework, there were teachers, there were all sorts of problems that you experience every single day in school. And then as you're a kid, you just want to grow up, because you think that once you become 18, or once you become an adult, or once you start making your own money, that those problems are going to go away. And do those problems go away. No, they don't. And then when you're single, you think that I just need to get married, because my problems are going to go away, I'm going to solve this huge problem. And then you get married, and you realize that you replaced one person's problems with two people's problems. And then you have children and the problems

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

multiply. And then you go through the circle of life. And there is never a state where you are no luck. And this is what you might want to be says. And if you look at history of theater of this verse, he says paella Rama, he says our scholars said that the first thing that a person experiences mean an old man you can't be doing inside total authority is the cutting of their umbilical cord right from the get go. And even some of us we'd never, we didn't emerge into this world easily we put our mothers through 16 hours of labor, 24 hours labor we kept but but the idea is, is that it is difficult from the get go. And then he goes through the description of going through and more and

00:06:15--> 00:06:24

more hay butter, the the going through school and the teacher and then he says getting busy with getting married will be not a console and then you got to buy a house.

00:06:25--> 00:06:48

And then after that the raising of children and then when you have reached middle age, then there's the middle age crisis and then after that your health starts to become more difficult and your knees start to hurt. And you know, he talks about the the pain of teeth. And then he says footman, motiva Danika kuliah and then after all of that is death

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

and the construction of the grave and the questioning of the angels and the resurrection

00:06:56--> 00:07:36

and standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala we are always going through difficulty he says hepatitis Dr. Weber he'll color in my field yet now imagine not until a person enters into a final destination, final residence, either in paradise or either in the Hellfire but ALLAH SubhanA Tada says, look at Heineken in Santa Fe COVID, we've created man to be in a state of difficulty. And when you understand that, then you're not bothered by the problems that you experience. A lot of us unfortunately, we are so disappointed in our lives, because we're looking and comparing ourselves to the lives of other people. And we're assuming that their lives are perfect, because that is what

00:07:36--> 00:08:17

they show us of their lives. And so everybody's taking pictures of their amazing meals and their amazing vacations and they're amazing children and they're amazing, not realizing that every single person here and every single person on this earth has problems because Allah subhanaw taala has created us to be like that. And then Allah subhana data continues in that sort. And he says, I said well, and they did it he had does he think that nobody has power over them? You're good luck to my Loboda they say I've spent an incredible amount of wealth. You know, this was mentioned it was a monopoly who came to the message of the province level of IDEA sending them and he had committed a

00:08:17--> 00:08:48

sin. For amount of honeybees, Allah they sell them because Farah, the Prophet salallahu Salam commanded him to pay and expiation and so that man, he left the message really upset and he said, Look at the habits. Look at the habit and while if he said Dakka Dakka Farah Moon Zuma ultrafine Mohamed salah. There is no reason my wealth is being consumed by Saba caught and Kufa rot this charity and expiation ever since I entered into the religion Muhammad as ever since I entered into the deen, I'm humbled I'm just being told to spend money. I committed sin here pay money.

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

I don't commit a sin I come to the masjid there's a fundraiser.

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

I remember reminded of one Ramadan I remember we I was at this Masjid.

00:09:00--> 00:09:22

In another place, they weren't as nice as Clearlake is with the fundraisers. They were very, very open to anybody and everybody who came in Ramadan. So every night we were getting hit with a fundraiser. And so this was on the East Coast, a lot of massages are close you just walk from one message to the other. So this brother is like I'm not praying at this message tonight. So he crossed the street and he went to the other masjid and what did he walk into? He walked into a fundraiser at that Mr to

00:09:23--> 00:09:36

But this notion and then Allah Subhana Allah that person who complains I'm always being told to give I'm always being known Ramadan sometimes we feel squeezed. Allah subhana wa Tada says, Your luck to Milan Loboda. He says, I've spent an incredible amount of wealth.

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

Does he think that nobody sees him? And then Allah begins to mention just a few blessings that if we were to have to pay for it, we wouldn't be able to pay for he says I'm going to die. I know who I ate. Didn't we make for him to eyes? What would you pay for these eyes of yours?

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

Every single day of your life you wake up and they start working

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

until you go to sleep.

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

Allah subhanaw taala did not make it so that we over exert our eyes. I use my eyes too much yesterday I'm gonna have to rest them today my eyes are sore.

00:10:09--> 00:10:41

Let me know that I know who I am and when he signed an OSHA 15 and the tongue never gets tired, ALLAH SubhanA data says do we make for them a tongue as well? And these two lips, and then there's something even greater than all of these blessings. But Allah is recounting blessings. You're saying that you're offering you're giving you're paying too much? What about these blessings that I'm giving you? Why they now had an edge Dane and we guided them. We guided them Womack could not do that. And we wouldn't have been guided if ALLAH SubhanA data did not guide us. Well. Hi, Dana, who alleged then, and then Allah subhana data says for Dr. Pamela Kava.

00:10:43--> 00:11:21

How can a person protect themselves from an APA? APA is described as being both a valley in Jahannam as well as a mountain in jahannam. Either way, it would either be law so how does a person protect themselves because they're still trying to live problem free How do I get to if I can, if I can protect myself from the Hellfire then I enter into this Jannah in which I will be problem free the only place one of the most constant descriptions of the hereafter and Jana is la joven it him without him yeah has entered that this will be a place where they will not feel anxiety nor will they feel despair. They will not feel sadness and they will not feel anxiety they won't feel fear

00:11:21--> 00:11:33

and they will not feel grief. And so ALLAH SubhanA data we're trying to get there. Allah says for luck to him and up but how will a person save themselves from this valley in the Hellfire for Krakow. The first is the freeing of a slave.

00:11:34--> 00:12:12

Oh, it's Bronwyn, feel me the mascara, we're feeding people in a day of incredible difficulty. When you yourself, I want you to think back to the beginning of this pandemic, when people thought that we were gonna run out of toilet paper, look at how people were responding to this notion of feeling like you're in need, it is very difficult to give when you feel like you are being threatened. And that's why one of the most freeing things about charity and next week we're entering into Thanksgiving, which is ironically followed by Black Friday, when everybody is on Thursday thankful for what they have. And then on Friday, they go and they try to run people over to get as much more

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

as they can. This the the freeing thing about giving charity is that you are telling yourself that I have enough charity benefits the next person or it benefits you before it even benefits the next person. Because when you give charity, you are saying to yourself, I have enough I'm fine. And so Allah subhanho data says if I want for you, I mean the MS club, feeding people in a day of difficulty. Who are these people? Like what are these categories, your team and

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

your team in them Aqaba? An orphan who is a relative to you.

00:12:46--> 00:13:19

If you just go online today, and you sponsor an orphan anywhere in the world, that's wonderful the province of Allah as Adam said, I know a guy who did a team katine field Jana, I and the sponsor of an orphan are like this in paradise. But if you can sponsor an orphan who is not just an orphan somewhere in the world, but as an orphan who is a relative to you, your team and Makarova, someone who's corrupt to you. I mean, that's beautiful, because you've combined between taking care of an orphan as well as taking care of the ties of kinship. And for some of us, it might be even closer than we think it just requires a conversation with your dad or your mom, or your uncle or your

00:13:19--> 00:13:42

grandfather or somebody say, Hey, who's in our family tree, who is an orphan that I can take care of. And they'll tell you, you've got so and so a cousin over here or in this part of the world or what have you. Yeah, team and democra only skin in the mitzvah, or an orphan or not an orphan but a poor person who literally vomited about they've got their hand on the ground, on the drop from their poverty, a person who's literally collapsed onto the ground

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

from the economy and Olivia and what was sold to somebody what was open marhaba and then they were of the people who believed.

00:13:51--> 00:14:25

What that means is to protect yourself from the Hellfire even if a person were to take care of an orphan and feed the poor and do all of these beautiful acts, but they did not have the prerequisites of Eman that would not benefit them on the Day of Judgment, I should have the law how there was a figure in Jahangir, there was a figure who was who was known as being like this great philanthropist of the life and Jain and I shall be Ivana asked the province of Obi Deus enemies. She said he used to take care of the orphan and he used to support the press is that going to benefit him on the day of judgment and Rasulullah sallallahu as Adam said that's not going to benefit him on the day of

00:14:25--> 00:14:55

judgment in the whole area cool. Yo man Robert fairly healthy at your midday he did not say on a single day of his life. Oh my Lord, forgive me my sins on the day of judgment and so Eman is a prerequisite and then they encourage each other towards goodness and they encourage because of the towards patients. Allah subhanaw taala says those people are able to do these things will not because how will you know? They are the people have gender. They are the people of gender. Well let the Anika follow be it Ron Hubbard machinima and those who

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

disbelieve in our signs they are

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

People of the Hellfire I didn't even know salah they are going to be in a Hellfire that is sealed

00:15:07--> 00:15:18

they are going to be in a Hellfire that is sealed. The scholars of the sea they mentioned they say that on the day of judgment about Amana Juhani he says

00:15:19--> 00:16:00

and he's one of the the leaders of them of a city and he says that Anioma pm Amata Allah azza wa jal Barrymore, Cooley shaytani okolo McKenna NASWA fauna shanwa On the Day of Judgment every tyrant every devil everybody who the people used to fear their evil will be called forth for all the Philippine not for all si Luffy they will be entered into the hellfire and they will be sealed in it. And then he says for Allah Allah He left us Akadama whom Allah Allah in Aveda says By Allah, their feet will never ever be on firm ground ever again. You know, a lot of us have a fear of falling, fear of high placing and that fear is realizing the hellfire, their feet will never be on

It him now most of the ALLAH SubhanA data says May Allah subhana data protect us from the Hellfire May Allah subhanaw taala interesting to Jin na Bucha Masimo Mustafa Allah you're looking for stuff, all right.
