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

Salaam Alaikum.

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

My team right there,

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


00:00:17 --> 00:00:21

Okay, so this film that I'm going to share is my it's my baby.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:29

It was inspired by a couple of Howdy folks over the last little aleida send them. The first is

00:00:30 --> 00:00:38

an a moment that he had with eyeshadow, viola Han Han, she said that she caught also lost a limb in a good mood.

00:00:39 --> 00:01:18

So she asked him to make dot for her. So the messenger sallallahu sallam, he said, Oh Allah, forgive out, it's just since forgive her hidden sins, forgive her apparent since forgive her past sins forgive her future since. And so I shall hold the line her she became so happy with that beautiful supplication that she giggled in her head fell onto the lap of the Prophet sallallahu send them. And then he said, Ayesha, are you happy? And she said, How can I not be happy when you made such a beautiful supplication for me? And then he said, By Allah, I make that draft for my own master every salon.

00:01:22 --> 00:01:30

The prophets lie Selim in another Hadith, he says, with his companions, he said, I wish that I could see, Bobby, my beloved.

00:01:31 --> 00:01:41

Well, so how are they said, aren't we your beloved O Messenger of Allah, he said, You are my companions, but my Bob are a people who did not see me.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

But they believed in me.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:48

And so there's glad tidings in this narration that

00:01:49 --> 00:01:57

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was longing to meet us 1400 years before we came into this earth.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:03

And the last was a statement by David butalbital de la Han.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:13

And a discussion about which verse is considered to be the most hope inducing verse in the Quran. Which verse in the Quran gives people the most hope.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:18

And I think it'll be a lot, he said,

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

asked for a debate.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:59

The verse that we consider to be the most hope inducing, you know, some scholars, they said, it's in the Ladell photo you should like me to film I do know that it can you make a shot that Eliza does not forgive that shouldn't be done with him, and that he forgives anything that is less than that, meaning that as long as you don't commit chittick then Eliza, Jen will forgive you, you have the option or you have your in the in the in the fields or in the game to be forgiven. And another group of scholars they said no, it is the verse where a lot as they just says, say oh my slaves, Allah the analysis of why the unforeseen latoken automatic Mattila, those who have wronged themselves do not

00:02:59 --> 00:03:36

despair from the mercy of Allah, Allah forgives all sins, I lead on the line, he says, As for us debate, the verse that we consider to be the most hope inducing in the Quran is what so if we have taken a book up for total bar, that your Lord is going to continue to give you until till you are pleased a promise that is given subtle, subtle loss the lightest send them, why because little subtle loss of the lightest in them is not going to be pleased on the Day of Judgment, until the last person of his own saves from the Hellfire enters paradise, you are not going to have a better defendant or defense, you're not going to have a better person to argue on your behalf on the Day of

00:03:36 --> 00:03:45

Judgment, that it'll sort of lost a lightness in them. And so with all of these kinds of emotions, I wrote this poem, it's called until I see you.

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

You are

00:03:50 --> 00:03:53

the best person I've ever known.

00:03:55 --> 00:03:58

The best friend I've never met.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:48

your sincerity to me is blinding enough to completely canvass the world with drapes that read respect, honor, love, protect, while creating a window for me to zoom in on the important things, but those are the things that I forget or neglect, I will do better. Your own is fine. Not because of me or mine or wounds that heal with time or those who would die for $1 sign but because of promises divine. So when we feel like we're at our worst, and our sadness would cause our hearts to burst It feels like there are times when there are angels within our lines, or hovering over squares with chance of freedom in the air and though tyrants may step on our necks we smile for history has

00:04:48 --> 00:04:59

always been on our side. Yours is an ohmmeter that simply does not die. I am sorry for my weakness for every time

00:05:00 --> 00:05:13

I've been ashamed of your name and asked someone to call me mo for not knowing enough about you to defend you and they drew cartoons or accused you with the most heinous of accusations for not getting over my distaste of reading and waiting for Hollywood to put you on the big screen.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:31

So I can know something about you. As if Steven Spielberg or Mel Gibson or Johnny Depp with somehow be able to recreate the twinkle in your eye, or a beautiful bead of sweat as a scaffold on your forehead, frantically fighting gravity not wanting to fall off your body, I keep thinking of seeing you.

00:05:32 --> 00:06:08

And if you would smile at me, the thought gives me goosebumps. You told me to meet you at the pool. So on that day, I hope and pray that I will see you through the crowd. Then the angels barricade me as I sprint at breakneck speed, I hope you recognize it's me. I will crowd the companions to get access to your vision, I will obey my thirst by quenching it from your hand. So until that day, I will pray, I will stand and I will pray as if my feet are holding the earth from splitting. If I make it, I cry if the thought of seeing you.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:53

For I know the words that I used to read from books with all too often pages will do no justice to your voice, your scent, your face, your touch. You see my messenger of Allah has always existed between the curves and dots of the Arabic alphabet. So Mohammed Abdullah, in 3d, and wherever other dimensions the hereafter brings with it will be an overboard of senses. I will fall in love with your shadow, and will tell you that his description did not do justice and saw my mother I show of how we heard her story of how you passed away in her chin and her chest over and over and over again. And it made us cry every single time. For we never suffered any disaster that was greater

00:06:53 --> 00:07:10

than what we suffered before our souls merged with flesh of entering an earth that was without you. Does the sky even recognize us anymore. And I will sit in the shade of your smile. And we'll ask you your story directly from your mouth as we sip on sensibio ice cold

00:07:11 --> 00:07:18

and will be terribly embarrassed if you ask me for mine. Because I never did anything right

00:07:20 --> 00:07:21

other than loving you.

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

And then if you let me I would love for a hug

00:07:44 --> 00:07:44
