They will come righteous, even if they have a lapse.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:32

It becomes like a homing device. They Charlotte at some point in time later on in their lives, they know what is right and what is wrong and they come back. Now, there are so many examples I can give you given of this concept of a young person who grows up in the worship of Allah azza wa jal, but three really really, really striking examples that I wanted to give is a hadith and body where the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:00:33 --> 00:00:36

he mentions three people who are on a journey.

00:00:37 --> 00:00:53

And they were young people, and they were on a journey. And while they were on their journey, rain came down, and they decided to take shelter. And they wanted to take shelter in a cave. When they entered into the cave, while they were

00:00:54 --> 00:01:22

in that cave, a boulder fell, that completely blocked their exit, they tried to push the Boulder, they couldn't move it. And they realize that if that boulder did not move, they would die in that cave. And so they concluded that the only way they will be able to remove this boulder is if they all call upon a law as urgent by the action that they believe to be the most sincere.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:33

They said the only thing that's gonna save us is that each one of us asked a lot by the dare D that is the most first question that I have first boss.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:38

Do you have a deed that you consider to be the most sincere of your life?

00:01:39 --> 00:01:46

you're ever in a moment like that? Do you have something that you feel and remember

00:01:47 --> 00:01:59

that you believe to be the most sincere action of your life? Because that's what they did. They might have taken an hour of introspection, reflection might have taken half hour, two hours, I don't know. But this is something to think about.

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

What is your most sincere action, if you didn't have one, you don't have one up until now then might be something to work on. Right? sincere, something that you keep between you and the law as we get and nobody knows it. We never share it to anybody. No Facebook posts, no. Twitter, you don't mention it to your friend in passing, you bury, and you protect it. And it's just you and Eliza.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:32

Now these people, they all began to account their deeds that they believe to be the most sincere. The first one says Oh Allah, I

00:02:33 --> 00:02:53

have two parents. And every night, I would go out, milk, the livestock, and I bring the milk. And I wouldn't let my kids drink until my parents drank. That was that's just the routine that I have. I always make sure my parents drink first. And then whatever's left, I go and I give it to my family.

00:02:55 --> 00:03:00

One night, I was delayed, I came back I found my parents to be asleep.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:11

But I didn't want to give my children to drink until my parents had drank. And so I sat beside them, not waking them up.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:20

He said I didn't wake them up. I sat beside them. I stay awake, waiting for one of them to just naturally kind of wake up.

00:03:21 --> 00:04:01

And they didn't wake up until the entire night had passed. I stayed awake the entire night waiting for them. And when they awoke, I gave them not to drink a lot. If I had done that sincerely for your sake, then remove us from the difficulty that we're in. And the province the lightest and upsets the boulder shifted a little bit, but not enough to get them up. So you pause right here. This person is a young person. This person has children, young children. This person has parents, so old parents. And this person has a routine and it's so beautiful his description. He says that I didn't want to wake them up. I didn't want to wake them up.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:08

He didn't want to interrupt their sleep. This person sensitivity to his parents, he didn't want to interrupt their sleep

00:04:09 --> 00:04:42

to give them milk. So he waited for them to naturally awake. Many too many of our young people forget interrupting their parents sleep. They do not allow for their mother or father to sleep because they're hanging out till 2am 3am. And their mother is staying late waiting for them to come home. That is the complete opposite of what this is talking about. So this person is so sensitive to the care of his parents, the boulder allies he accepted that from him and he shifted a little bit. The next person. He says this Deanna

00:04:43 --> 00:04:44

the next what time are we praying?

00:04:46 --> 00:04:51

Okay, so the next person he says, oh, a lot. I had for me a cousin

00:04:52 --> 00:04:56

who I loved as severely as any man loved anyone.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

And I had approached her many times that she

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

Always ignored me.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:03

Shows rejected me.

00:05:04 --> 00:05:13

But then one time she was afflicted by one of the senior one of the years she was there was a famine or there was something where she was she hit hard times.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

And she approached me. And she said she needed some help.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

And I gave her

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

100 dn ups,

00:05:24 --> 00:05:35

which is gold coins, not even the silver dinars, he gave her gold, like he's giving her a lot like I gave her a $50,000 buy right then and there, but on the condition that she gives me access to herself.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

So she agreed.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:45

And when I was with her in the way that a man is with his wife,

00:05:47 --> 00:05:49

she stopped me and she said, Fear Allah.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:54

See, I approached her, and I was almost she said to me, Fear Allah.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:10

And she said, In that moment, I just came to, and I left, and I left her and I left the money and I. So in that moment of his passion, and that love that he had for this woman and this lust that he had for this woman, as seriously as any man.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:33

In that moment, he feared a lot. So yeah, and he left her. And he says, oh, life, I did this for your sake alone, then leave, remove, move us from this difficulty that we're in. And the boulder shifts, but not enough for them to get out. So you have the fitna of parents are the test of parents. And then you have the test of

00:06:34 --> 00:06:49

lust, right. And these are two things that are just overwhelming for young people anyway, it's their parents and their friends, and they're the opposite gender, right? Then you have the third. And this person says, oh, a lot had a worker

00:06:50 --> 00:06:53

who was working for me. And he had a

00:06:55 --> 00:07:19

he had a pay that was due to him that I was supposed to pay him. And he didn't receive it. He wasn't there. I continued to I took that money, and I invested it continue to invest into my business continue to invest to continue to invest and continue to grow and grow and grow and grow. This is that money that was due to him. And so when he finally came to collect, I pointed at all of the livestock

00:07:20 --> 00:07:23

that now belong to Him. And I said to him, this is your wealth.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

Because he had invested in in a group

00:07:27 --> 00:07:39

or a group. And he said, Stop playing with me and said, I'm not playing with you. This is your Well, this is yours. And so he took it and left. And then he said, Oh Allah, I did that.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:47

For your sake, then remove us from the difficulty that we're in. And the province, the ladies have said, the boulder shifted, and they all walked out.

00:07:49 --> 00:07:58

So then you have the fitness of money. And usually, when I remember being in a class with a chef who asked the students,

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

raise your hand, if

00:08:02 --> 00:08:09

I can ask you guys this, which Who here thinks that the the biggest test, the most difficult test is the first test the test of parents raise your hand?

00:08:13 --> 00:08:17

to three, who believes that the most difficult test is the test of the opposite gender?

00:08:19 --> 00:08:20


00:08:21 --> 00:08:30

who believes that the most I already know that I'm not gonna get like 90% people raising there is gonna be one of those seven people participating.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:34

Who believes that the test of money was the most severe test

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

for people. Five, okay.

00:08:40 --> 00:09:04

Usually, you'll find that people in different stages will mentioned the different things. So when we're in that class, like all the young people raised their hand, and they said, opposite gender. And then when it came to money, and all of the aunties and uncles raise their hand, and they said, right, because nobody knows how powerful money is, until you're actually making money, right? and interacting with money. And this is a really severe test where a person's actually,

00:09:06 --> 00:09:40

you know, you're investing the money, it's your skills and your intelligence that is developing or growing this money, but it's the investment of somebody else. And so if he had actually given him, his share of that was due to him two years ago, or three years ago, that guy would have been absolutely happy. But it's absolutely sincere. And the thing about all of these three, what's tied is the sincerity to allies. It's nobody knows, nobody knows that this guy stayed staying up all night. No one's gonna thank him for it. Nobody knows what's going to happen between him and his cousin. She's not going to tell for sure. And he's not going to tell us so it's done. And the third

00:09:40 --> 00:09:59

nobody knows that this person has been using his money to invest and to grow and to grow. But it's all sincere to a lot. And so a young person who grows up in the worship of Allah as you know, one of the things about young people is that passions walk with young people makes the person who's young

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

And writers are religious, something that's so unique is because it's not expected. what's expected is that you're young, wild and free. That's what's expected. what's expected is that you're young and stupid, you're going to make mistakes, and that people are going to accommodate your mistakes. And people are going to be okay with you making mistakes to some degree. So you have that flexibility. And not only that, you have that strength. When you're young, you have the strength of your physical strength, of course, all of your all of your your strength is there. Then at the same time, you have the strength of your opinion, you can't tell a teenager anything, right? Because they

00:10:33 --> 00:10:52

know it all. One of my favorite quotes is, I shared this all the time, with Mark Twain, Mark Twain. He said, when I was 14, my father was so ignorant, I could barely stand to have the old bed around. When I became 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:55


00:10:56 --> 00:11:05

write when you're 1415, you probably even remember that that feeling that my parents, they really just don't know. It's not even that they don't understand. It's like, they don't know, like, they're

00:11:06 --> 00:11:31

like, what planet are they from? And then you realize you hit 2021 22, you're like, wow, they actually know what they're talking about. But that's that youthful passion. Everything is is is that you know is right. And because you're experiencing things on such a superficial level, as far as information, you are in that first hand spat, that's a Fianna thought he talks about, he talks about knowledge is three hands. That's

00:11:32 --> 00:11:43

the first pass bat breeds arrogance. It's like when you read your first book, your first book of Heidi, take your first class, you're like, man,

00:11:44 --> 00:11:58

bring 20 little cards and thought, is an innovation. I showed you a lot and has said the profit and loss and I've never paid more than 11 because it's in the Heidi like, what more do you want, and you're ready to go to war with half the Maasai that used to

00:11:59 --> 00:12:10

like, and you're ready, because you've got that strength, though of opinion. And you've got that energy. And you've got that strength of courage, all of that together to strengthen every level in every way when you're young.

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

Savannah 30 says the first novel has found brings arrogance, the second hand span of knowledge, reads humility. When you recognize that you know what, there's other opinions, and this ocean of Islamic knowledge or knowledge in any field is vast, and you're not going to cover it, whether you read one book or 100 books, there's still going to be so much more that you don't know. So it makes you humble. Our ships with acid, we're just used to say at the University of Medina, they used to know the difference between the freshmen and the seniors, just by their attitude,

00:12:44 --> 00:13:06

the freshmen would come in and flex their muscles. And I know this and that just so and so and this and this, and this is the position of this and, and the seniors are just walking around quiet, because they've been broken by now. And they've been humbled. Right, and they recognize that they just they don't know, then the third sphere of knowledge, you realize that you don't know anything.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:11

It's just an endless ocean, and you're just someone who's gazing at the shore,

00:13:12 --> 00:13:22

you're never going to traverse they say that knowledge. If you give all of yourself to knowledge, knowledge gives itself a part of you know, you're never gonna fire all of it. And so

00:13:24 --> 00:14:12

the young person is so passionate, because they believe right, that their their positions are right, and all of these types of things. Now, when a person has all of this energy, youthful passion, all of that and they break it for a lot as diligently, they have the ability to fulfill their desires, they have the energy to stay up till 2am 3am 4am every single night, and to go out with their friends and run around. But they decide instead to sleep at 10pm I think we wake up at 2am for to hydrate, they're breaking their desires, when they have the energy to commit How about with regards to relationships, and they decide to be chaste. That is them breaking their desires. You know, one

00:14:12 --> 00:14:18

of no story that I heard from about this old man

00:14:19 --> 00:14:24

who had traveled from the Middle East and he had went to the Netherlands and he

00:14:25 --> 00:14:28

came across the the red light district.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

And so when he went

00:14:32 --> 00:14:41

to the red light district prostitution, Yanni, he was outside he was found outside crying, weeping and crying and weeping. So Muslim guy.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:47

So when he was asked about why he was weeping, This old man, he said

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

all of these answers are based on all of these like

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

opportunities. Unfortunately, we didn't

00:15:00 --> 00:15:40

Find out about them until we became too old. I wish that we had learned of these opportunities when we were young to take advantage of. Right. So this is this is like a person wishing to commit sins that they didn't have the opportunity to, to commit. Right. So when a person is old, they actually they don't have the vigor, they don't have the energy to commit, forget half most of the sins that a young person can easily commit. And that's why the province of the lightest and have said that a lot of people will not look on the Day of Judgment at three individuals. The first is a keepalives. The second is shape when Zack old person who commits in him and the third is a a poor person who's

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41


00:15:42 --> 00:15:54

kink who lies Of course, a old person who commit Zina shave Wednesday, an old man who committed sin. And the third is a poor person who's arrogant. And the scholars, they looked at me said, What's the commonality between these three things?

00:15:56 --> 00:16:05

Can anybody figure out what the commonalities what's common between a king who lies, and a chef who, an old person who commits Zina, and the third is a poor person who's arrogant.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

Other than probably

00:16:12 --> 00:16:19

because it's not needed, it's not necessary. You're insisting on it anyways. Perfect. Exactly.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:59

You're it's the sin is there's no strong data or there's no strong. There's nothing that instinct that's pushing you to commit that sin. A kid who lies is lying, because they're a kid, and they're overpowered everywhere that they go by adults. And so they lie to their parents to avoid getting beaten, right? They lie about to their older brothers, so avoid that the lie because they're weak. The king, why is the king lying? There's no one that they fear, or there's no one that they should fear. And so a king who lies is a king who is participating in a city that they don't really need to participate in. A young person will give it to others.

00:17:00 --> 00:17:25

Passion is running through their veins. An old person who commit Zina, that passion has gone most of the time, right. So that passion, that passion, that instinct is gone. And so the third, a rich person who's arrogant, well, they have a lot of reasons to be arrogant. They've got Well, we've got fame, they've got respect, they've got all of these things. Why is this poor person being arrogant?

00:17:27 --> 00:17:42

One time I was at a stoplight. And there was a homeless person asked me for money, so I put cash out of the window. And the sign said, Christian, and thankful. And then he was like, didn't you read the sign? It says Christian, and he wouldn't take my money.

00:17:50 --> 00:17:51


00:17:54 --> 00:17:55

Like, I've never been like,

00:18:02 --> 00:18:03

give me some charity.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:45

So with young people, right, it's expected that they're going to make mistakes, in fact of the prophets of wire, send them said in a beautiful Hadith, he said in a lot, he will be champion based on what he said, Allah as, again, is amazed at a young person who does not have a sub one of sub what is defined as being mailed either our a spade inclination towards their passions and their desires. And that passion or that inclination, that slipped basically, a young person who never slips, a person who literally grows up and they're on the straight and narrow the entire time, their entire life. This kid who's going to the massage did, and a lot of it, again, is therapy, and a lot

00:18:45 --> 00:18:47

of it is environment. But

00:18:49 --> 00:18:55

I'm reminded just the other kids how I went and attended a mission. And I just happened to go there for failure.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:25

And they were giving this kid an award at the after. So lots of failure. They were giving this kid an award, just like 10 year old kid came up. And it was because he had attended funded for the past six months at the message, like a 10 year old kid, but him and his dad every single day they go, and they attend trade shows together. And so it was just an example of this concept, right? A kid who's growing up in the worship of Eliza. Yeah. And a lot of it is, you know, the parental influence in the family influence because with young people.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

I mean, the influence of their parents is

00:19:31 --> 00:19:41

amazing. You guys know better than me, right? That the influence that you ask the kid who the strongest person in the world is they'll say my dad asked me the smartest person in the world is they'll say my dad.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

They'll say my mom like

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

this and that and this and that. And you know, during that stage, up until what 1011 before they enter these preteen years, really, they're they're arguing with their kids, their friends and the only proof that they have is

00:20:00 --> 00:20:10

My mom said My dad said, right, so it must be true. And then the other kids are getting my dad said, My mom said, so it must be true like this is full on, it's enough for them, it's called he is absolutely

00:20:12 --> 00:20:15

absolute. And it's and it's proof

00:20:16 --> 00:20:28

taking advantage of that with regards to young people to make sure that you are establishing in them these types of habits that will make them righteous, and will conclude inshallah tada after the Select on Britain after the Civil civil rights.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:43

So I wanted to just end with a few examples of

00:20:44 --> 00:20:48

young people who are raised in the worship of allies or again, and

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

then have a discussion with you all with regards to

00:20:55 --> 00:21:14

how we can do that, whether we're still in the youth stage of our lives, or practicing that with others. Something interesting that I came across while I was reading on this topic is the discussion of well, who is shot by who is considered to be a young person? And so generally, it's considered somebody who's under the age of 30.

00:21:18 --> 00:21:35

So then the question becomes, so basically, from below, which is puberty, so you're talking about 13 1415, what have you until this age of 30, once you start feeling like I'd rather go to sleep at 10, and not go out to gyro King,

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

then it's kind of like you're out of this out of this.

00:21:43 --> 00:21:44

But then the question became,

00:21:45 --> 00:22:07

what does that mean? Does that mean that I lost out on this? What if a person starts, like, you know, practicing at 31, or 32, or 33? And people ask these types of questions like, could I still be part of the the shit under the shade of a lot under that category? Of course, the other categories still exist. And so that question was asked to chef, a marathon man, and he said,

00:22:09 --> 00:22:53

You know, a lot as he says, those who repent and do righteous deeds and allies, again, he went through a lot. So yes, I say that a lot as well here will exchange their sins, with good deeds. So if a person, say, for example, was wayward, or not practicing, or what have you, during their youth period, and then they end up practicing afterwards, it may be that a lot, a lot will exchange their sins, and will replace them with good deeds. And it may be that they will be counted as being of those who are in the shade of a lot under that category of youth who worshiped Eliza, because a lot of benevolence knows no bounds. And Allah has he does whatever he wishes, nonetheless, the province

00:22:53 --> 00:23:34

that Elijah sent him, he said, Take advantage of five things before practice. And of those five things that the prophets I send them said, is your youth before your old age. And so this is a message that needs to be communicated again and again. And again, which is taking advantage of your youth, taking advantage of your young period. And remembering a lot of times, I know for me, when I think of the Sahaba the images that I get are of older people. I don't remember how bob i think of someone who jasola lots is a man, this is someone who's in his 40s or 50s I don't think no one will hop up. Same thing with luck. However, when you actually look at their ages, when they converted to

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


00:23:35 --> 00:23:41

They were very young, I'm not gonna lie, I was 26

00:23:42 --> 00:23:43

and earth mine was 25.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:59

And work, who was like the most senior, he's like the shareholder, the companions, he was 38 because he was two years younger, that also have a loss of license. We all know, he never thought he was eight. Sadly, never class was 17

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

I'll give you some of the some of their ages.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:12

So you have a walk 38 or 26

00:24:13 --> 00:24:19

with a man 25 Some said 30 depending on whether he was older than normal or not, it

00:24:20 --> 00:24:45

might have no 30 but VEDA 27 as were a team of 11 sadly, middle class 70 of the lightening was around 14 common the outcome and outcome outcome 12 so he didn't say 1980 and Heidecker 20 so right away you're getting the image at the bottom sudden was four years old, who's his band who these guys were believing in Him and following him and they're teenagers.

00:24:47 --> 00:25:00

Right? They're absolutely teenagers and the progress of life is calling. You know these heads of Quraysh but the ones who are following him are 18 years old. Jaffa they've never thought about him and will be was approximately 20 years old.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

hubbub was killed in Mexico is 20 they didn't deserve it was 20

00:25:05 --> 00:25:19

most likely Nomad was 24, who eventually became the ambassador to Medina and was killed at her hood. And that to me is what was 24 when I was 30, I might have been acid 30 and hums up the oldest, he's the only one older than also the last

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


00:25:24 --> 00:26:04

And even though he might have been the agent for Papa salicylate, so the province the license of said Masada Nia Shut up, he said, the ones that supported me are the young people, the elders rejected. And so this is also a reminder for us when half of our room is under the age of 25. Really the importance of focusing on young people, because that's what the prophet SAW the lights and and focused on, recognizing that that gives you the greatest return on investment. The question then becomes, and now just comprehend that all of these milotic, all of these great moments, that when we talk about these companions, and all of the things that they did, and they accomplished, and their

00:26:04 --> 00:26:28

wisdom, and their, their intelligence, and their righteousness, you're talking about people who many of them never made it out of their 30s. Like, I'm not saying they didn't all live to be like Armando hopped up and died the age of 63. Or I'd even ever thought if they didn't, many of them didn't live that long. So most likely no man must have passed away in his late 20s, maybe made it to his early 30s

00:26:30 --> 00:26:32

sad demise with the profits on the lightest and upset

00:26:33 --> 00:26:44

the heavens for the throne of a lush look at the death of side in your mind. And he was considered the leader of the unsought or one of the leaders of the onslaught. He died at the age of 34.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:47


00:26:48 --> 00:27:30

and as up like he died at 34. That was and he was he was a leader in every sense of the word, you know. And part of part of it. What's interesting is that part of a loss divine preparation for Medina, for them to be the onslaught is that a lot as we had made Medina, a city that was ravaged by war, for decades before the prophets of the lightest, and then migrated. So they became, you know, a lot of their elders were actually killed in war. before the arrival of Lazarus and observed, they had this generation of young people who are actually the leaders of the city. So it also lost Us and Them came, they follow Him and they believed in him. But, again, these people are some of our ages

00:27:32 --> 00:28:13

doing the things that they did. So this habit of the linemen were the greatest example of young people who believed in the law as again, and they had access to everything we all know medical is filled with vices and luxuries that actually line on Bahati talks about the four different types of marriages that existed during the time of Jay Z. And of this, of the four three of them were completely lewd and indecent. And the last one was the only one that Islam allowed, which is the new guy, every other one who was just any. Absolutely, Felicia. Yeah. These have shunned all of that, that made someone like us and I'm now finding says, I never committed Xena, and j dare snuff. You

00:28:13 --> 00:28:26

know, ignorance is not that was never a part of my Mo, never part of my personality, nothing that I desire. Look at all the lad who never Dragon God or Islam, like these are people who shunned these things. And when they had the opportunity to believe in a lot as they did

00:28:27 --> 00:28:45

other examples that you have of young people who grew up in lower school a lot so you have so many examples when it comes to the the Imams of this oma people, you know, you can go down a list, of course, the great imams like Mr. Chavez, for example, to someone who comes to mind and these were people who were focused at a young age and they knew

00:28:47 --> 00:28:49

that they had something to accomplish.

00:28:50 --> 00:29:28

even greater than him is out of life now Best of the light. Now bass was a young person who began to seek knowledge in a city that was filled with knowledgeable people. And so it wasn't out of scarcity, that to live not by seeking knowledge. In fact, he was going because he was young when the progress of the lightest has died. And he would go to knock on the doors of the companions and wait for them to leave, wait for them to come out. Just like that guy earlier was waiting for his parents to wake up the live now bus even though he's the cousin of the province of the bison and the son of our buses, uncle of the lion ambassador to go and when he would go to a companions house, he

00:29:28 --> 00:29:40

wouldn't knock on his door. He would sit outside in the Medina and heat. And he would wait for this companion to naturally come out for prayer or solo or something like that, for prayer or

00:29:41 --> 00:29:59

prayer or for some sort of errand or something like that. We wait for him to come out. And when that person would naturally come out, you find the cousin a little school bus I said, I'm sitting on his doorstep. And sometimes I'd love now bus would just lay down and cover his head from the sun and you become like, just as

00:30:00 --> 00:30:25

This dusty person sitting outside. And what's he waiting for? The guy would come out and say, oh, cousin of rasulillah, you have a nominal sweetie law. What's got you are sitting outside my house, he was like, I wanted you to tell me something about this idea that I wanted you to tell me this about the province. I said, and he would say, why don't you call me I would have went to you? And he would say, No, we come to you. You're the one who has the knowledge. We're the ones who come to you. And so I have the light. Now bass had a friend.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:28

And his friend was saying to him,

00:30:29 --> 00:30:33

even I'm biased, who cares? Well, you know,

00:30:34 --> 00:30:59

like, you really think that anybody cares about the lighting my biases, opinions on this combat is like, nobody cares about this city is filled with people, Scott, I don't want him to have thoughts. But it's got me Oh, friend, it's got a smile in it, like, do you really think? And he's just like pulling him down? Right? And we all have friends like that, or family members like that. It's like, What are you trying to be?

00:31:01 --> 00:31:12

And then I'm delighted that Busey says, but there's one word, he says, I left it, I stopped hanging out with this person. He's negative, he's an electron. I just stopped.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:55

I stopped hanging out with him. And then he says, I just continued on my journey, and then what ended up happening, have Walker dies, and I'm gonna die with manda and it dies. And the world starts looking for who's who's, who's next. And I would like my buses ready. And he became how he became sort of Germano, he became the person, when you look at the books of deceit, you won't find a book associate, except that it has prevalent throughout it, statements of his advice, if I busted this isn't invested, but even more than those companions who were senior than him, because he was ready, at a time when he was the most needed. He was actually he was, you know, they also have when you

00:31:55 --> 00:32:22

learn the stages of the development of filk, you'll find that they also have you know, that generation of applied now bass, and I'm delighted about an eyeshadow on the line, I do Sahaba, they're more prevalent, because their role, as opposed to the elder Sahaba, who their role was the establishment of the Islamic State and sending out the expansion and, you know, focusing on that, which is what the elders have focused on the Sahaba. When they

00:32:23 --> 00:32:24


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


00:32:27 --> 00:32:39

prevalence, they were, the state was already established, and everything was secure. And in fact, that dynasty had already taken place domains by now. And so their role was simply that of being teachers.

00:32:40 --> 00:33:20

And so that's why the most prolific narrators of Heidi, Anna Sydney Malik, I have lived on a lot of live now bias of the live nominative menos. These guys are all young Sahaba you won't find a walk narrating a lot of Heidi, because I've worked two years after the promises of them died total. But he did that even though he's the closest one, he was absolutely busy with that. It wasn't sitting around so many people who told me one day, you're going to do that. Neither did the seniors. So that's part of, you know, you may feel like that in Houston to, oh, gosh, don't do it, and you got your salaat. And you've got shuffled in and you got to shift so and so and so and so, like, who

00:33:20 --> 00:33:58

cares about your little notebook and your, you know, the things that you're jotting down, but you never know, right? And in 20 years and 30 years, what any one of us might become. And I you, I'm sure some of you have witnessed this now, where you might have been like a kid in msgid, where you are getting, like they were shooting you away from teaching in the Sunday school or now they're calling you back to call, they're like, please come and teach this or please come and do that. Right? And you're seeing that progression within a short timeframe within a decade maybe or five or six years. So it's important. One of the lessons that comes from that is this the importance of

00:34:00 --> 00:34:14

having a vision, knowing what you want, how you want to serve, and working towards it. inshallah, tada, you'll get the opportunity that sometime but when you get that opportunity, you'll either be ready or you won't be ready. Right, so it's obviously better to be ready. So

00:34:16 --> 00:34:47

they also have are the examples of the by novices a great example of that someone who grew up just focused on the worship of Allah as again, through the avenue of knowledge, we have others to the avenue of knowledge like Imam Shafi, who at the age of 12 years old, is traveling by himself from Mecca to Medina. So you can go learn from my magic 12 years old that he's getting this world class education from your mathematic. Then you have those who grew up in the worship of Allah as a yen in other ways, such as how many

00:34:49 --> 00:34:50


00:34:51 --> 00:35:00

the conqueror of Constantinople and he at the age of 19 was at the gates of Constantinople and he

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

I mentor turkey through him. And he was a rich Prince. And he could have simply did what rich princes do, he could have been wasted his time and wasted his talent and the luxury, but he had him would have been, and this one would have be of his. So whatever it is what, wherever you're someone who, you know, nobility, they would have people who would teach them, the arts, whether it's the arts of manners, whether it's the arts of mobility, it wasn't just someone who was like a teacher teaching you sexual sciences, they would teach you etiquette, they would teach you archery, they would teach you how to be a gentleman or how to be a noble person. Okay? And this one would have

00:35:37 --> 00:35:47

been with you all the time, that it'd be they're raising you, maybe even more than your, your, your parents. And so this would have be, would teach him a Hadith of the prophets, Himalayas.

00:35:48 --> 00:36:15

And he would tell him that the poem itself is and it was asked, which city would the Muslims enter first? Would it be constant in opal? Or would it be Rome, and the province or the idea send them said, Constantinople will be opened first Constantinople will be conquered? First? When mlj Shu Joshua, whenever a mural amuro, the province of Alliance instead of what an excellent army is that arm? And what an excellent I mean of that, Armand, is that,

00:36:16 --> 00:36:36

right? And so that's a beautiful prophecy and teskey of the province of bison, and the Prophet is telling the Muslims that no, you're going to enter Constantinople first. And that army is an amazing army. And that amuse an amazing idea. And I sent it to me. And so then whenever we have a fight, we tell her, you're going to be that

00:36:38 --> 00:36:56

you're going to be the one who, like, you're going to be the fulfillment of that same as the prophets lesson. And so how many fights is being raised with that one goal, and that one purpose, and at the age of 19 years old, he's standing at the gates of Constantinople, Amma jcj, shoe.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:02

So these are examples of people who are

00:37:03 --> 00:37:36

grown up, grew up in the worship of Allah has agenda and the worship of Allah, as we all know, is not necessarily a single particular vehicle. There's not a single particular vehicle to worship allies. Again, we all know that you have to fulfill the obligations of prayer and fasting. Whereas even acclaim says, There are different ways to transport down themselves and stuff the most often what's the theme is the straight path, but there are different ways there are different vehicles of transportation to go down. So some people, their preferred mode of transportation is the subway. Right? Some people their preferred mode of transportation is Uber, some people their preferred mode

00:37:36 --> 00:38:14

of transportation is their own private car, right. So some people, their preferred mode of transportation is fasting, allow me fast and easy for them. So they just fast, fast, fast, fast. Some people their preferred mode, transportation data set, often just a theme is charity, or serving others, some people that might be social justice, and establishing the rights of others. Some people it may be this or it may be that these are all different vehicles that people can use data. So some people it will be knowledge, right. And so whenever a vehicle allows you didn't meet beloved to you, that you use it to go down and sit up in your stocking. And to obviously, make sure that it doesn't

00:38:14 --> 00:38:18

take away from your ritual obligations, like your music and your hubs and all of this.

00:38:20 --> 00:38:25

Anyway, so that's what I want to share my shop and a shout out to the law. Next weekend, shout out, we will go over

00:38:27 --> 00:38:32

a person whose heart is attached to the message, because that is where

00:38:34 --> 00:38:36

a person who grows up in the worship of a lot

00:38:37 --> 00:38:40

is naturally inclined to the houses of Alliance.

00:38:41 --> 00:38:56

I wanted to hear from you guys, actually, what are, you know, things that really impressed you about people that you've experienced? Who fulfill this quality young people who grew up in the worship of allies? Or what things have you seen? What

00:38:59 --> 00:39:08

I guess what aspects of parenting or environment that you notice from them, that made them outstanding in the way that they were?

00:39:12 --> 00:39:18

memorizing for life? Okay, so a young person who memorizes plot now, do you? Do you are you thinking of a particular person?

00:39:20 --> 00:39:59

Okay, like if you can think of a particular person, like this is someone who I believe to be like this category. And this is maybe the environment or the something that I noticed about their parents, or something that helps. Like, for example, someone with the rest of memorizing Hold on, I remember once watching an interview of a father, who had three girls, and they all had memorized some portion of 10 ads out 15 or 20 ads, and it was like that, like they had all accomplished a lot. Watch a lot, a lot of a lot and they had asked him and they said like, what is it? What's your secret? And he said, I remember I said, Hold on with them.

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

That was the secret. And so when they saw that their dad is just as committed, even though he had memorized much less than them, but even like he was, it was like family time, and it was a part of a program. And they were all doing it together, it helps them a lot, as opposed to some parents who they do their own full on memorization, or they're awful on reading, but they do it at 5am, before the kids wake up. And so even though they're actually reading the whole on, the kids are not witnessing their parents reading the Hold on. And so they are not, there's that impression of seeing their parents interactive online is not there on them.

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

Yes to two things that I can think of, there's a couple of people I know that were like, inspirational kind of growing up. And then were inspirational to other people around them too. And just like, I think,

00:40:52 --> 00:41:09

the common dfcs people that grow up going to things like this, where they have a peer group, they build a peer group from an early age people, they go to gatherings where people are talking about God, and you know, they build friends from an early age, and they kind of grew up in that circle. I feel like those are people that have become,

00:41:10 --> 00:41:46

they stay, they stay firm, they're less likely to be shaken going up. And they then give that out on later on. So they'll like I was in Islam a lot. And by the time when I went to medical school, there was a kid from New York, who actually went over there and started the Islamic classes over there. And that kid grew up in young Muslims. And he just been around it for a long, long time. And this is in bakasana Muslim country where no one was like doing anything about it. And he's like, yeah, I need to start this again. And then that later, got a group of people together. And then one of those people ended up leaving medical school. And it's like a big teacher in Pakistan now. And he just

00:41:46 --> 00:42:09

like, he has a huge Facebook, following all that type of stuff. But that came out of the class that that one kid had set up. So that and then other was another person I can think of is used to read a lot. He used to read all the time. So the knowledge base was really good. And that would keep him away from a lot of like, the partying or whatever. And it would just keep him kind of more focused on school and learning, and then get a deep knowledge base of people, you know, Does

00:42:15 --> 00:42:17

anyone else have something you want to share?

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

Yes, sir.

00:42:21 --> 00:42:23

I recently

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

found out

00:42:25 --> 00:42:39

one of my friends was telling me how her family has always gone for pleasure together. And I didn't grow up with that. But I thought it was such a beautiful thing, because the kids ended up growing to appreciate prayer on a level that desire to

00:42:42 --> 00:42:45

see a family of friends together stays together, right? Yeah, it's very,

00:42:46 --> 00:43:28

I found that with kids, it's, it's when they see the commitment of the family to the prayer life, that then it becomes something that's really internalized deeply. Sometimes parent family will pray together. But they will pray together on Baba schedule, from Mama schedule, which means that when the kids are watching TV and they're engrossed, Mom will come up and be like I saw saw saw, right, like we need to pray right now. meaning you're praying on my time. But at the same time, the next day, the dad still went off on the clock at home, my mom was on the phone, or Bob was watching the football game. And so the prayer gets delayed by like two and a half hours. And a lot of like, kids

00:43:28 --> 00:43:42

aren't aware of that. They are aware of that. So what they realize is that the prayer isn't really, you know, in nostalgia kind of annoying when you get that memo, but it's not really that strict. As far as timing goes, it's more like,

00:43:43 --> 00:43:53

you know, you kind of just have to pray when your parents are there. Or if you're your boss, because there's nobody there, then you pray at your own leisure, just like your parents create their own leisure.

00:43:55 --> 00:44:15

Was inspires me is when when you see someone that doesn't have that in their life, that religion, the devotion, and is still constantly motion devoted to Islam and devoted to learn more about Islam that I think has more inspiration. And I see something like that. And she's somebody who's not coming from a background of righteousness. Yeah, for sure.

00:44:17 --> 00:44:24

You know, one of our teachers, Dr. Hartman heights, he was trying to give me an example from the alphabet. And he goes,

00:44:25 --> 00:44:32

you can have in your message, he said in masajid, we appreciate the person who's coming from letter C, the letter letter B.

00:44:33 --> 00:44:52

But we don't appreciate the guy who's coming from letter X all the way down to letter J. Like the person who's coming from letter X is traversing a much greater distance as far as their transformation, but they're coming in at letter J. So they might still be coming in with a necklace and earrings and a bunch of tattoos and you don't mean like

00:44:54 --> 00:44:59

but they journeyed all of this distance, whereas the person who's coming from letter C came from a righteous family

00:45:00 --> 00:45:16

You know, they come to the messages and they're like, Yeah, I know 10 solace reviews, I'm looking at the prayer. Like they didn't really do that much they kind of just were given that they're in that environment anyway. But that's the person that we appreciate. Right as opposed to this person who's journeying that far.

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


00:45:20 --> 00:45:21

Muhammad appreciates him.

00:45:24 --> 00:45:32

Okay, so next week the the Hadith is a person whose heart is attached to the masjid. So I don't want it to do

00:45:33 --> 00:45:33


00:45:36 --> 00:45:43

if one of the sisters could prepare like a five minute presentation on

00:45:48 --> 00:45:50

an analysis

00:45:52 --> 00:45:56

is it an analysis, or basically how to make massages?

00:45:58 --> 00:46:03

Or a checklist for making massages accommodating for a sister's heart?

00:46:05 --> 00:46:18

See, because all of the shields we'll talk about are the scholars who talked about this Heidi, even though the phrase says blood urine, a man whose heart is attached to the masjid this they all said

00:46:19 --> 00:46:21

it's man and woman

00:46:23 --> 00:46:27

it's man and woman's heart is actually show who wants to prepare this?

00:46:30 --> 00:46:39

And if nobody raises their hand, I'm gonna give it to the brothers and they're gonna do it and then you guys are gonna get upset and relax. Brother talking about how to make it more accommodating for sisters.

00:46:41 --> 00:46:42

Hashtag next time remember

00:46:46 --> 00:46:48

my sisters I need somebody

00:46:49 --> 00:46:53

It looks great. Okay, so just prepare five minutes and Charlotte data

00:46:54 --> 00:46:57

for next week. Yep. And

00:46:59 --> 00:47:06

if one of the guys could prepare, same thing, five minutes around five minutes on

00:47:12 --> 00:47:14

very simple the role of the minister

00:47:17 --> 00:47:20

the modern day world where the minister should do

00:47:21 --> 00:47:23

what she expected them so there should you find it?

00:47:31 --> 00:47:32


00:47:34 --> 00:47:36

That's fine. Fair enough.

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

40 to 40 Yeah.

00:47:51 --> 00:47:55

I'd like you to on that opinion. I'm with you too.

00:47:57 --> 00:47:58


00:47:59 --> 00:48:00

I heard 42.

00:48:04 --> 00:48:10

But the last thing that I was researching it was, it seemed like it was 30 but looking

00:48:15 --> 00:48:15

at 40

00:48:19 --> 00:48:22

they have all of these stages to have for two and

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

what else?

00:48:28 --> 00:48:29

I don't know how you say shade for hot.

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

That's about for you.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:45

Can you prepare that for us?

00:48:50 --> 00:48:52

I like to delegate I'm all about

00:48:53 --> 00:48:54

all about involving

00:48:58 --> 00:48:59

before a break

Explanation of the Hadith of those who will be shaded under the throne of Allah (swt) on the Day of Judgement.
