Rahim and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Carlin mahabharatha hamerton lil al Ameen. Nabina Muhammad in while earlier he was a woman and he had he was then abbyson neci he Isla Yomi Deen among
the brothers and sisters in Islam. A salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah.
Our topic for today in sha Allah
is the most important topic anyone could ever talk about.
It is the most Nothing can be more important than it. And this is
talking about the Lord of the worlds subpoena, who azzawajal.
And the topic itself is so simple, that it makes it extremely difficult to cover.
Because when you talk about
the one and only
the first, without a beginning, and the last, without an ending, when you talk about the creator of this universe, that everything that exist, other than Him is created and created only by him. There was a law
and there was nothing else but him. When you want to address this topic. You need workshops.
It's not easy to talk about Allah azza wa jal as we think though we have the conviction in our hearts.
So who is
the Lord of the worlds?
His name is a law. He's identified by this name. He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He is the Sustainer
he is the provider for all creations. Every creation of his is a need for him, and he needs no one to help him to assist him to be by his side. He needs no one subhanho wa Taala.
Under symptomatic may Allah be pleased with him tells us that when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam used to be asked questions, my the nomads, we used to be happy, because we were forbidden from bombarding him with questions. So out of respect, we did not ask him questions until a nomad, a Bedouin came, then we were happy, because if his question was intelligent, we will learn. So a nomad came. And he said, Oh, Mohammed, your messenger came to my tribe, and he claims that you were sent. So I'm asking you questions? Who is it? Who created the heavens? The Prophet answer that is solid said, I'm a law, one word, who created the Earth's? He said, a law who erected the mountains and
what's in them? The Prophet said, a law. So the bedwin said, by the one who created the heavens and the earth, and erected the mountains and whatever is in them, did Allah send you?
And the Prophet said, that is some Yes, he did.
If you listen to the answer of the Prophet alayhi salatu, salam to these questions, he did not make a lecture. He simply specified, it was a law. So the name Allah is the name that Allah is identified by
All names go back to this great name. And no one since the beginning of time has ever claimed such a name. And that is why Allah says in the Quran heltah Lambo Lambo, Samia, do you identify Do you know anyone who is similar to him who has the same name of him? No one has ever said I am Allah. Around said, I am your Lord and Allah, Allah Allah, but he could not say I am Allah, shape on can never come to you and say I am Allah, this name, a law, so beautiful that when you are in distress, and it comes from your heart, all your worries disappear.
was known from the time of Adam. Till date, all previous nations, all previous religions, all denominations are acknowledged the Creator of the heavens and the earth by the name of Allah. Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran that the people have no set one OSHA Allahu lanzetta muda aka, if Allah had willed it, then he would have sent down angels they addressed him as Allah. So they acknowledge the people of hood said, generally nabooda law Why have you come to us so that we only worship a law alone, so they acknowledge him by the name of Allah,
and even the idol worshipers of kurush? There were 360 idols around the Kaaba. And they used to worship each one per day.
When the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam went for Rome, Rome and was blocked on the day of today BIA
so halep nam, may Allah be pleased with him at the time was a mushrik. He came as the ambassador to write a treaty with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the prophet was dictating. I live nabby thought it was the one writing he said write Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So Hayden, Amma said, Whoa, wait.
We don't know what is a man Rahim. Just simply right, we begin in a law's name.
Miss Mikela home this is what we know. So even the idols acknowledge that his name is a law. And if you look at our relationship with this beautiful, glorious, magnificent name, you will find that all our
all our tests be all our praising of Allah, we use the word Allah. So we say sapan Allah, Al hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar La hawla wala quwata illa Billah and everything of importance. We begin by saying Bismillah so if I eat and I say Bismillah What does this mean? It means I begin to eat. In the name of Allah. If I write, if I enter my home, if I ride my car, if I have intimacy with my spouse, if I do whatever I do before doing it, I begin by the name of Allah seeking of what? seeking of Baraka from Allah, the Almighty, as our gentle and this beautiful name.
This world will come to an end. When there is no one on earth that says Allah. The Prophet said Allah His salatu wa sallam in an authentic hadith, that the day of judgment will be due.
It will come when there is no one on Earth, who says a law a law.
Foot note, people would say, Ah, this is why some sects and cults would say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and they swirl like fans and they dance and say, This is a headache. No, this is not the Heidi. Never ever the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was noted sitting down and saying, Allah, Allah, this is all deviancy. This is all fabrication.
These are all innovations that Heidi is referring to a state where Muslims do not use the name of Allah which means their hearts are empty. of the mentioning of Allah azza wa jal not that you repeat this as Vicar. The name Allah is the name that identifies other names of Allah. So when someone tells you what is the meaning of man, you don't say it is the name of Allah disease.
When someone tells you what is the meaning of a law, you don't say it is the name of Al Karim. No, but when you say what is it Aziz, you say the name of Allah, what is it Kareem? The Name of Allah, what is a head Anwar hit a Samad, and moda all of these come back to the name that identifies Our Lord, the Lord of the heavens, and off the earth.
might come and say, Allah doesn't exist.
And this is so lame.
Because I can say to that atheist, you don't have a soul. And he doesn't.
You don't have a brain, because I cannot see your brain unless I have to crack your head open. And that is not a bad idea. But unfortunately, it goes against Islam. Islam tells us Do not crack anybody's head open. This is prohibited it's Haram in Islam. So how can we answer this a fist? It's very simple. There are three evidences that prove to us that there is a law there is this instinctive evidence, something that is built in you. And in every human being, even if they claim they're atheists, they will give you a full lecture that Allah does not exist. The minute someone comes to them with a nine millimeter Glock,
and puts it in their heads, they said
they wouldn't go as far as La ilaha illAllah. But Yama is good for me. If they're in a plane, and the plane is about to crash, ask them afterwards. What What were you doing? He said, I don't know. I was just looking up and looking for help. It is natural in all humans, that when you are in stress, you tend to look up because you it's instinctive. It's something built in you that you realize that only Allah can help you. But of course, when you're saved, then you're in the airport and you're in the comfort of your home, you'll go back to your deviancy and your disbelief, which is self chosen.
Therefore, there is this inner instinctive evidence scholars say, if a man if a child was born, and were to be left alone without any outside interference, no family interfering, no friends, nothing. He will grow up to believe that there is one Lord who created and who controls and who does everything. He would not be able to pray and fast and gives the cat because this has to come from the Quran and Sunnah. But his instinctive his inner nature shows him that there is a law. The second type of evidence is the tangible evidences.
All physicians, all geologists, all chemists, all people of knowledge, acknowledge that this universe cannot be created haphazardly. By chance. By coincidence, you ask an atheist who created you he says nature what is nature? Says Mother Nature was father nature.
Wasn't that the wedding man?
Subhana Allah, what kind of nonsense is this? They said we evolved from monkeys is you talk about yourself.
I know where I came from. If you think you came from a monkey, this is your right. But where this evolution ended? Yeah, do we see monkeys? And we see humans, okay. The monkeys here have been living for the past 100 million years. None of them evolved. We don't have like monkey man. We have spider man but monkey man would do a good comic book. In between for the atheist, at least make them happy. There isn't anything as such. This is no no this happens that this happened. This did not happen. This
Allah says in the Quran gives you two choices and the third is the right one. Either you created yourselves or you created by nothing.
So who created you? They would say nothing. Vacuum does not create any vacuum. So okay, we created ourselves. Okay, can you create a couple of twins please? So no, this is impossible. So then who created you? It's a lot.
It's like bringing a pile of metal, putting it in a room and locking it. Atheists asked me, Why are you doing this? I said, inshallah, we'll come within 150 million years, and I'll find an M three BMW
preferrably, gray, color, leather seats, sunroof.
It's crazy. Look at this perfection that we have. And without any doubt, USA La ilaha illa Allah.
If the sun would get a mile or so closer to the earth, it will burn everyone on it. If it goes a little bit further a mile away, it will be freezing. If the moon comes a little bit closer or goes a little bit farther. The tide will make the whole earth drown. who's controlling this nature? Yeah, let me meet nature. Maybe you never know maybe we can hook up. What what what is this what is nature? There is nothing as nature there is the creation of Allah azza wa jal look at your human body. Look at the eyes how fine situated there are, they're not out like a frog, and let that soak in. But if you get to punch a larger protected your eye, in the cavity in your skull,
and look at how beautiful it is, when you eat.
You never pay attention to what your tongue doing while you're eating and how it's shifting the morsel from right to left and how it is protecting it so that you can swallow it and that you would not breathe it in into your lungs and die and suffocate.
Who's knowing this, my small computer in my pocket?
Allah azza wa jal is and if you go through the human body, it will take us months to just look at the marvels of Allah azza wa jal and then you said that chance, coincidence, nature. It is a law of the Almighty Who had created this all and if you look at the evidences from the Islamic Sharia,
you will find that the Quran and the Sunnah directs you to Allah the Almighty describes Allah to you, you know Allah by his beautiful attributes. All of this shows you and identifies to you who Allah is.
Okay, now we know Allah hamdulillah does Allah have rights? See the issue of rights and obligations is also I don't know if she has made Mufti mink Mufti smile mink, has said it
and has talked about it but most likely he did. There are rights and obligations. Now Allah azza wa jal has rights and obligations.
Not that it is obliged upon him to do something, no one can force a law. It is him himself who obliged himself to do something but he has rights. Your wife has rights, your father has rights, your mother has rights, your children, your neighbors, your kinship, everyone has rights. The greatest rights of all is the right of Allah, the Almighty but what is Allah is right upon us that we have to and must fulfill the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was not one once
on his right, with more either manageable behind him. So he asked why that manageable and why the Magellan is a story by himself. If we want to dedicate a lecture on why the new jabaal, a companion, who died after serving in Islam for about 10 to 12 years, yet he was one of the greatest scholars of all times. Among the companions, no one used to give fatwa except a handful, a handful of companions at the time of the prophet Isaiah when he was alive. One of them was mine.
And this man is
something else. So the Prophet used to devote
a portion of his time to teach him so is it more I do you know?
What is alleged right over his servants
So far I've said a lot who, who? I have not yet no knowledge. So Allah azza wa jal, and his message is no, this is the answer that we all should give when we don't know.
Unfortunately, we don't do this. Someone asks me about nuclear physics, I have a theory
because I know everything, and so do you. And this is problematic
part of his knowledge, I do not know. So the Prophet said Allah, Allah is right upon His servants, that they worship him without associating others with him. Very simple. Hello, and of lecture, you worship Allah, you don't associate others with Allah, you have fulfilled your right to Allah azza wa jal.
But when you contemplate on this sentence, you can actually author and write volumes, explaining them. The Hadith itself requires explanation, but let us look at this phrase or the sentence, I was right upon His servants that they worship Him alone, and not associate others with him. So when we say worship Him,
worship of law, what is the definition of worship?
People when you ask them, they will say pray fast, gives a cut hamdulillah I did my part, I did my prayer. What they said, Because Allah told us through His Prophet Allah, so Sam, that Islam was built on what? Five Pillars?
Now, can you live in a house? Only with five pillars?
Where are the doors? Where are the walls? Where are the windows? Where is the split units, air conditioning, bathrooms, kitchenette, etc, no one. But people because of their lack of knowledge, think that this is Islam? I pray fast, gives a cat maybe perform Hajj. And that's it? No. This is the essence of Islam. But you have to bring the other things to qualify. And this is why
worship is defined by
anything that Allah loves, or is pleased with, from whatever we say. Or do whether visible or hidden.
So someone says cracking the head of an atheist?
Is it something that Allah loves? What is the answer?
No, no, no. I see people doing this. Maybe they're just looking something under tober. No, it is not something that Allah loves. Because imagine if each one of us had his own conviction that this brother is an atheist. And this just there is an atheist and they start killing each other we become in a jungle. This can be only taken part by the Muslim ruler after going through judicial investigations, etc. And the Muslim judge tells him Yes, he needs to have his skull broken. Then we'll hamdulillah it's not me it's the ruler who did it. So you now you have to analyze your life. Let us see what is form of worship or not. So sure if I'm kind to my father. Is this a form of
worship? There's a lot of it. Yes, palace, greenlight? Oh, if I'm kind to my brother, to my sister, Mashallah Baraka, if I give charity, if I am kind to a dog, who is thirsty and about to die, is all of these are all forms of worship. So if I'm on my own walking from here to my car and I say Subhan, Allah hamdu Lillah, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, form of worship. If I'm intimate with my spouse, form of worship, yes. Then we have to work overtime.
Do it Allah azza wa jal will grant you reward if you do it. But if you do something that Allah doesn't love, then it's not a worship, it's a sin. So either it's visible or hidden, whether it's something that you say rhetoric or you do, it is part of the worship, so unless right is to worship Him alone, and this is the message of all messengers of Allah azza wa jal, Allah says
insaaf in four locations ferragudo la mala Camila Hendra really used to say to their people, all my people worship a law you have no deity other than him. Also Allah azza wa jal says, and we certainly sent into every nation, messenger saying, worship Allah and avoid the fatherhood.
Anything that is falsely worship other than Allah is called couplehood. So this is the essence of the messengers of Allah, their message to worship Allah. Now everybody's in this beautiful Hall is saying, Yeah, okay, next year, move on. I'm not going to say something new. You are Muslims, you all know this, but we will come to something that will might, that can be an eye opener it might be and most of you shall know this and all of you have correct and unclear arcada in Alaska origin. If you ask any Muslim, why did Allah create us? He will immediately cite and say the ayah in Surah, the various mama holla gene well insert
allele or goon I have not created the Jin and the humans except so that they would worship me.
does Allah need us to worship Him?
ally self sufficient, Allah doesn't need anything. So when you tend to wake up for pleasure, salaat and the water is cold. I don't know if the water is ever cold in Malaysia. But yeah, sometimes you might find it cold. And you think you're Allah, why am I praying? fudger What does Allah make me pray fudger Allah doesn't need you to prefer to go to sleep, but you will go to hell.
No problem. It's your choice. You want paradise you have to work, you need your paycheck, at the end of the month, you need to come from 95 you want gender you have to pray. So Allah doesn't need you, I created the whole of this universe for you and me to do as best as we can and then go to Gemini, sha Allah, Allah did not create us except to worship Him. And
Allah does not accept your worship at all. Unless you have the first pillar of Islam, which is the testimony which is the kelemen which is the Shahada. So without La ilaha illAllah. Without no date is worthy of being worshipped other than Allah, Allah would not accept your worship, no matter is it visible or hidden, is it saying or action, Allah will not accept it? The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he sent more either managable as his judge, his ruler and His messenger to Yemen, he said to him, and howdy Hasan,
you will come to people of the book, Christians and Jews. So let the first thing you do when you call them is to call them to toe heed
the Arabic word and you were hidden law, to believe in the oneness of a law.
So this is the most important science topic subject that anyone can talk about. Why? Because if you don't have to hate, you don't have Islam.
And there are three types of the hate.
Everyone knows them. Though he did Ruby, though he did Oh, here though he did asthma was suffered. And there this is all from the Quran, and the sooner nothing from my own pocket.
The hidden Robo via what is that this is that they will hate of Lord ship.
This is knowing Allah azzawajal through his actions. So he's the Creator. He is the giver of life and the taker of life. He is the provider. He's the Sustainer he is the owner of everything. So tomorrow when you take some rain gets from your pocket and say I will give you my money. It's not your money. It's a lot of money. When you calculate your Zakat, and you find that you have to pay 100,000 ringgit Zakat, because you're Mashallah very wealthy. Don't think that 100,000 It's a lot of money, I can buy a car, and I can make a car as a taxi, Uber and then I can make money and invest it in two years. I can build a house and
the money is not yours.
The money is a lot. So you have to do what Allah has ordered you to do. alonza just says in the Quran and listen to this beautiful verse, and see how that the head of lordship is included in it, Allah say, say, oh Mohammed, who provides for you from the sky and from the earth provide?
Or who owns hearing and sight?
And who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living? And who this pose of affairs who disposes of affairs, they will say, a law, the idol worshipers would say, none of our idols do this we acknowledge only Allah can do this. Say Will you not then be afraid of Allah's punishment?
So this kind of dough heat, it is shared by us and by the idol worshipers. If you ask a Christian who created the heavens and the earth, He would not say the Holy Ghost, he would not say Jesus Christ because Jesus was not there at the time. Yet his he became promoted and became a God in their view, this is their opinion, they will all acknowledge it was Allah the Almighty, if you ask the Jews, they will say Allah, the Almighty, the either worshippers which one of your Buddha created, or which one of your cows created the heavens in there this they will say, no, it is a lot, the one who created So, this we have no dispute with the disbelievers. We have great dispute in the second type
of tawheed. What is that? It is known as though he will follow here, that the heat of worship, and this is acknowledging Allah azza wa jal by our forms of worship, not to worship any other than Him with whatever we do. So our prayers, our fasting, our charity, our slaughtering, our fear, our love, our hope, our trust, all kinds of rabada of worship, can only be devoted can be only given to Allah, the Almighty.
And this type of the head is where the error has occurred. And for it, the messengers were sent for it, the books were revealed. for it, Allah created the humans and the jinn. for it, Allah had set the laws that tells us how that tell us how to worship Him, and how not to fall into innovation. For this type of towhead, the dispute between the prophets and messengers of Allah on one side, and their people took place. Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, and we did not send any messenger before you or Mohammed, but we inspired him, saying La ilaha illa Allah, there is no God where they are being worshipped except me a law so worship me. Also law says, that is because Allah He is the
truth. And that which they invoke beside him is a
So whoever acknowledges that they'll hate of lordship, like so many people in the world, they say we believe Allah is the Creator. Allah is the provider. Allah is the facilitator, but we worship other than him. In this case, they are not saved and they will be doomed in hell forever, because they are associating others with a lot. The third type of tau hate is that they'll hate of Allah's Beautiful Names and attributes. And this they'll hate, you may think that we have no problem in this we acknowledge a larger No, we do have a big problem among the Muslims.
Because Allah has described himself in the Quran, and we read the Quran.
And the Prophet has described Allah in the Hadith, and we believe in the Hadith. So what is happening? We see that Allah azza wa jal in this form of no hate, asks and orders and commands us to worship him through his beautiful names.
attributes and not to associate
in these names and attributes other than Him so we believe
that Allah has the best of names and attributes. And we believe that Allah can not be associated with anything that is false or degrading or not be fitting a lot. This is why Allah says in the Quran, lay second if
you are denying something, there is nothing similar to him.
Well who was semirara, bossy? And he his whole hearing, all seeing and you are approving it? So you approve, that Allah hears? Definitely. Allah says, definitely. Allah loves. Definitely Allah loves the believers, may Allah make me and you among those whom he loves. does Allah hate? Yes, Allah hates as mentioned in the Quran, those who disobey Him? does Allah have a face? Of course, it's mentioned in the Quran. does Allah have hands? Of course Allah says in Surah Saad and elsewhere to the shape and why didn't you prostrate to what I have created with my two hands?
Now some people would say, Yeah, but Allah doesn't have two hands.
Should I believe you are believed the Quran?
should know this is a figure of speech. Are you crazy? Allah is telling you in Arabic, and you say No, he didn't mean that.
How do you know that? He didn't mean that. She did because this listener he even shape on is better than you.
why do you say this year? Okay, Allah azza wa jal is telling shape on the police. What prevents you from prostrating to what I have created with my own two hands?
If Allah did not create them with his two hands shaitan would have said You created me with your two hands as well.
But shaytan understood, and he believed that Adam, out of all Allah's creation was created by Allah's hands, to honor you, human beings.
every thing else was created by Allah's word to be and it is harmless. But this is just to give you a glimpse, so without going into further detail, because it's very easy to win such an argument, because we have the Quran and Sunnah with us. This is what Allah told us. This is what the Prophet told us is awesome. We believe that Allah azza wa jal is above everything. Allah azza wa jal is on top of everything, unlike what he thinks the masses and the ignorant and those without knowledge, say Allah is everywhere. Stuff Allah, Allah says, All right, man, Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal above the throne is subhanho wa Taala. Allah has risen above the Throne, nothing is above Allah and
nothing can surround the law and nothing that Allah is in need of. And you say Allah is everywhere. This is logical.
Allah azza wa jal knows everything Allah azza wa jal hears everything. He has the ability to control and destroy everything. While he is subhanho wa Taala above his throne, he doesn't need to mix with us. When you say Allah is everywhere, this is preposterous. This is inappropriate to claim with Allah, the Almighty. So we believe in Allah Beautiful Names, without any distortion, or misinterpretation or denying the reality or even asking how this attribute is because this is something that we could not comprehend. But we believe, we believe because Allah told us about it now. The majority of us Muslims are in great danger.
We are in great danger because the Prophet said Allah Subhan Allah, right upon His servants that they should worship Him alone and not associate others with him. We worship a lot alone. But a lot of us worship others with allies origin stuff.
None of this is true. Don't be don't pretend to be shocked. This is true. And I'll prove it to you but in a very short way so that we can accommodate time.
You believe in the Quran. Correct?
Who doesn't believe in the Quran? Raise your hand.
And hamdulillah Watch out people who crack skulls already.
So, Allah says in the Quran in surah Yusuf and most of them believe not in a law except while they associate others with him.
So the majority of people believe in a law but at the same time associate others with him.
To the extent that the issue of sheer IQ is a serious issue, a serious topic, if you spend all your life studying to heat and avoiding shark, you will be doing a good investment. How come listen, who is most beloved to Allah azza wa jal
Can you hear me? Who is most beloved to Allah azza wa jal
Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he is the most Beloved of Allah creation to Allah. We have no doubt in that.
But listen to what Allah says to our Prophet Mohammed Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal says
what are the oh here la co Ll levena. In public law in a shocked Li upon Amma look while at a coonan Amina ha serene, and it was already revealed to you, Mohammed, and to those before you the messages and the Prophet, that if you should associate anything with a law, your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers. Alonzo Adele has no relatives has no favours from others to him, You are his beloved messenger, but the moment you associate others, he will shun. Of course, the Prophet would never ever do such a thing. But this is a dire and straight warning to the prophet and to us. So it's direct directly to the profit but indirectly to us because
the profit would never engage in such evil, evil and heinous acts.
The Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that Allah azza wa jal said, I am so self sufficient, that I am not in No need of having an associate. Thus, he who does an action for someone else sake, as well as my sake, I will abandon him and his action. Allah only accept what is purely for him. What does this mean? It means, brother and sister of mine, that we may pray, we may fast we may give charity, we may do good deeds for 100 years.
If we associated other with allies, our gel
in the process and die upon it, we will be in hell for eternity.
Your ally How was worshiping you for 100 years? Where's my prayer? Where's my hedge? Where's my Zakat? Allah azza wa jal does not forgive you this shirt that you had done, but Allah is most forgiving. Listen, Allah says, Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. So if you drink wine, if you steal, if you find a Cait major sins, you may go to hell for some time, you may be forgiven, it's up to Allah. But eventually you will go to Jenna, may Allah make me a new among those who quote agenda. If you have some schicke
then you will never be admitted to agenda and this is for eternity. Share it by the way is major and minor. So some of the minor shark which is greater than the major sense, but lower than the major shark. Islam has protected the heat. To the extent that even what you say, though it's minor shark, you are prevented from saying it so I can say has it not been for Allah and you I would have been doomed. shirk avoided.
If someone says and this happened
Prophet alayhi salatu salam, a man came, and he was giving a speech and said, Whatever Allah chooses, and you and the Prophet stopped him and said, Stop.
Have you made me an associate to Allah stop this and say whatever Allah chooses, whatever Allah wills don't put me with a lot, even if it is what we consider tribal, trivial, trivial and minor. But the prophet considered it so bad that he had to tell us not to do it, swearing by other than Allah by my mother's head.
This is how long to honor your mother's head, you can say, by my wife's head.
But still, this is how long a lot of the people in Arabia, they swear by their honor, by my honor who shot
or rossabi by the head of my father, if I'm lying me he died by the prophet as when maybe they swear by the prophet s and they swear by karma will care about
all of this swearing by other than Allah is schicke Islam prohibits it. It is prohibited to pray in the graveyard. It's also time so I am in the graveyard Allahu Akbar prayer so how long your prayer is invalid? Why? Because this is a graveyard so this is a means of taking you to share today you're praying for Allah. So tomorrow you pray to rock for molana t journey. Gilani by the way Surely this is what's happening worldwide, some Arab countries you will find the shrine and a shrine and six shrines in between. You You lose count of how many earlier and how many righteous people you tell you tell people
swear by Allah you did not drop you said well law here I did not drop okay swear by our sin. So Mostafa law, I can't know I have to admit Yes, I did drop. So they fear that I will leave their graves, their shrines their dargahs more than the fear of Allah.
Allah azza wa jal prohibited us from praying voluntary prayer sooner for whom for Allah, if it was before sunrise or sun set, why? Because this is simulating the mushrikeen who prostrate for the sun, so for you not to be imitating them. Okay, but I'm praying for Allah even though stop, the Prophet told you to stop all of this is to prevent us from going to ship, measure ship.
So if this is prohibited in Islam, then what is the ruling on asking someone other than Allah? for protection? Will you guys go and say for your saint or peer or whatever, protect me from this or that or give me this or that? One of the people said for 10 years I did not have a child. I used to go every week to Mecca for ombre and I supplicate to Allah and Allah did not respond to me. One friend of mine said yeah, hey, go to Cairo. There is Masjid Al Hussein and go to the shrine of Hussain to the grave and ask for a righteous child.
And after nine months, his wife gave birth to a healthy child. She soon so Pamela
What is this? He doesn't believe in Allah and he believes in sin. And the funny thing is, what was the actual saying killed? Where was he martyred malapropism in Iraq? So they have a shrine of Husayn in Iraq and they have one in Syria and they have one in Egypt in Cairo. So they say that the head is in Cairo the body is in Syria and and the feet are what is this crazy things? Well, I have people who claim to be Muslims are so ignorant or so away from Quran and Sunnah. This is why they do not worship Allah except by associating associating others with him. So many people
would neglect that Allah is the provider. Oh ALLAH forgive me. I have to miss Arsalan Mahara Venetia Why? My boss is with me in a meeting if I go for prayer, he may not give me the raise. He may not give me the incentive, humanity the increment. He may not give me the overtime. He may sack me. So forgive me. He has he signs the paycheck. Okay, who signs your paycheck? Who allows you to inhale? inhale, air, not drugs.
Seriously, if you inhale who allows you to exhale? It's a last hand. And this is why when Allah wills it, a person inhales and does not exhale he's dead. Has Allah wielded so everything in your body moves with Allah's permission and you want to leave salaat behind
As your CEO is the one who's gonna sign your paycheck and then you say I mean I have no heat I have Islam
nowadays, as we have four minutes to go, I think
though the moderator told me that I can extend it for half an hour more
seriously, no serious he did. But
inshallah nowadays when we talk about oh hate, I can see labels you can see here labels on top of my head.
I cannot read them you can read them because the minute anyone talks about the hate, they put the stamp and maybe at his back and label him Are we talking anything other than Quran and Sunnah?
You know, you have Quran opened the Quran. More than 1000 times Allah's name is mentioned
the whole of the Quran, one third of the Quran is on towhead.
Are you crazy? There are people nowadays who are hypocrites or who are enemies of the hate, they are will lie the enemies of Allah azza wa jal, they are belittling the hate. Whenever you speak about the hate that all what they know is the hate. Is there any more important than the science of knowing a lot of worshiping Allah azza wa jal? They said, No, no, no, this is an issue of dispute. This is the aqidah of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam, his companions and the tambourine and the Tabby atterberry. Bring me anything that goes against their upgrader, I will stand with you and defend you. But if you attack the al Qaeda, and that the heed of our Prophet alayhi salatu was
Salam. This is treachery. You are betraying Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Quran and Islam.
associating others with a law corrupts your mind. It corrupts your heart. It corrupts your moral ethics and your conduct. It corrupts your minds, because this is exactly what the people of hell will confess of.
If you go to that specific person before we have cracked his skull and asked him, Are you intelligent or not? What would he say? Definitely, I'm intelligent. I'm 10 times more intelligent than you and the likes of you who think that there, there is a God that exists. Do you know what Allah tells us about them in the Quran? Allah says, and they will say,
If only we had been listening, or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the blaze Waqar, lacuna smart pill. Merkin feels hard to say. But I tell fob them. They have confessed, but it's too late. They are already in hell, it would not help them. So it shirk, associating others corrupts your mind. It corrupts and spoils your heart. And this is why when you only believe in Allah, and you have no heat filling your heart, you're the bravest man on earth or woman because you trust the law.
A bad one was warned by the colonial powers, that was like 100 years ago, and they told him listen, the Brits and the Europeans are coming to invade your country, say let them come, we will fight them.
He said to him, they have aeroplanes said what is what is an aeroplane? He said it's a machine that flies like the birds and throws, bombs and shells. He said, huh? Who's higher? These aeroplanes are Allah,
Allah, Allah will take care of them.
This is arcada. When you have data in your heart, you feel nothing. But when you don't have data in your heart, you fear everything.
Everything that happens, you're afraid you're scared, you're terrified. And this is why you find in
countries nations and among the disbelievers a very high rate of depression, of anxiety, of suicide. When you come to the Muslim world, you don't find this you go to the poorest Muslim who is unable to pay for anything. Salaam Alaikum alaikum salam, how are you Alhamdulillah
hamdulillah they are grateful to Allah azza wa jal, despite all the calamities they're under, while those who claim to be civilized and intellectual, they are afraid of everything. And shirk corrupts your moral conduct your ethics, whenever you don't have to hate, then you are worse than the animals. Look at those disbelievers the way they live.
It's fun, it's nice that civilized martial law, they have beautiful cars. They have beautiful women. Women say they have handsome men, they have money, they have health, voila, they are living in paradise. This is what shows to you, if you go and live among them, like so some of you may have, you can see that they don't have a life. They don't have ethics. They don't have moral conduct. They have homosexuality, they have cheating, they have bribery, they can buy you sell you for what you have, or for what you you do not have, they do not have anything that really relates them to good ethics except what can bring them profit. See the Muslims because they're far away from Quran and
Sunnah they cheat in life.
Then this is their bad businessmen, the non Muslims, because they know that honesty and saying the truth increases their profits and sales there, okay. But whenever they have a possibility to cheat the law, to break the law to evade taxation, like someone you know, who did not declare his taxes till today.
On I don't know how they live, but they accepted Him, they can do this, we cannot, because our hearts are filled with the heat now To conclude, so that I would not take the half hour promised. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam told us that the Jews were divided into 71 sects. The Christians were divided into 72 sects, all in hell. And the Muslims will be divided into 73, sex or couch. All of them are in hell except one.
So the companion said, Who is this one, oh prophet of Allah is awesome. He said, Whoever is on my footsteps and the footsteps of my companions.
Allah will not accept any of your prayer, fasting, charity, had Roma, unless you have to hate filling your heart, unless you have a void ship. And this is unfortunately, a choice of yours. Why do I say unfortunately, because a lot of those who grew up to be mushrik will not go back to the hate. They say we cannot leave what we found our forefathers practicing. This is our culture. This is our so and so. You have the choice to end up in Paradise, or to end up in hell. May Allah azzawajal fill my heart and yours with pure though hate. May Allah azza wa jal make us among those who follow the appeal of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and his companion, may Allah azzawajal make
us among those who avoid all types of shared major or minor visible or hidden, said or by action. In Allah Allah coalition Paddy was Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad in WA he was so happy as your main was salamati come to LA he
