brothers and sisters in Islam as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
It gives me great joy and honor to stand here before you
to share something with you
about a hereafter
about a place
which if it wasn't for that place that Allah had
I don't think any of us will be working in Islam for anything.
Or maybe none of us would have hoped. But only live with fear. Fear from hellfire.
Allah created heaven, gender
and a Muslim lives a life not only in fear,
but a life between hope and fear.
We live in hope, hoping that Allah will forgive us and give us mercy. And we enter that everlasting dwelling in gender paradise.
And we feel alone from doing sins. Because we remember hellfire. And we ask Allah to save us from hellfire.
And so a Muslim lives the life of her life of hope.
and how fear of Hellfire
brothers and sisters, I have a question for you.
What do you wish for?
What do you wish for?
What do you desire?
What do you anticipate to rich? What do you anticipate to rich brothers and sisters? What is it that you yearn for? What is it that you longed for?
What is it? ask yourself that question?
What is your ambition?
Do you wish for a beautiful wife or a gorgeous husband?
Who has got popularity?
To everyone looks up to so they can show off with him or her?
Do you desire a beautiful mansion and lots of money? Is that what you desire?
Or do you anticipate courage a firm, lifelong career? Do you anticipate that?
Do you yearn for luxurious dwelling a land of probably one day to buy an island of your own
Do you? Do you longed for fame and popularity and fortune?
What do you yearn for? What do you desire?
What do you desire?
Do you miss having all of that?
If this is what you are desiring and disadvantaged for and yearning for,
there might be a brother or sister,
you have been deceived, you have been deceived by this world, all of its fortune, all of its beauty. Because this beauty which you see in front of you, as a law describes it in the Quran is like a flower that grows in the ground.
It gets watered from the rain, and then it blossoms.
It has a nice fragrance and it looks beautiful.
But then it only lasts for about a month or less. And then suddenly it starts to wither away. And you have no more attention towards it as if it never had existed before.
And becomes soil and it
Allah says in the Quran alone, no. Understand,
acknowledge, learn this, understand this always be conscious about that, at eye level, and even higher, to dunia even wider who was enough to
know that this worldly life.
and higher to dunya is only playing live laahu entertaining yourselves. Xena decoracion the fat from bainer calm, challenging each other who can get the best house who can get the fastest cars?
Who can look the most beautiful?
Who can have more money, the fat from bainer. Allah says and this is what the word life is about.
That refers to that trying to rise in the high levels and positions in work.
Yes, they do. And everyone tries to beat everyone else in becoming or reaching that high seat. Yes, it is a life of challenge challenging each other.
What the Councilman feel and when he went out lead and people loving his life to have lots of money, lots of children in order to have a strong back.
Committee Do you think rj belco Furman about back to Tamiya heydo, Fatah homosassa my akuna Obama butterfly which I gave an example to this world is like that, it blossoms for a little bit. And then it fades away brothers and sisters.
If this is what you are wanting yearning for longing for missing and being anxious about
I'm sad to say brothers and sisters that you are in a very great loss because when you die, and we all shall die, you're just going to have to leave it all behind you.
So panela all of that going to leave it behind us. Yes, it's not going to be buried with you. The only thing that you'll be taking is two things,
your family and your actions
to the graveyard.
But your family will go back and your actions will stay with you.
And then it'll be an ugly being if your actions are bad to keep you in a bad company until the day of judgment or review most handsome person to sit with you and keep your company until the day of judgment.
So what do you yearn for and desire?
When we read about the companions of the past, we find that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us an example about how they lived and what they yearn for and anticipated and desired. I have chosen a topic called Michel Kona in an agenda, which means those who desire paradise not those who desire this world. And I give you examples of the companions of the Prophet in a short while and people who live before us because Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, how will we land him in a shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
una una una
and those were past us those who have passed us losses. The ones who have beaten us.
beaten us. hula economical. They are the ones closer to Allah. With future net in him in high places in Jenna. blistered.
Sula, two minutes away in a large amount from the people before us. What clearly don't mean a new small
amount to them still exist in the after time, meaning in our time, whoever said that one brothers and sisters, four times, Mohammed Salah Salem, his companions and the ones after them, they are the sad because they have beaten us into things. They are the sad economy, they are before us. And they are the savvy community that beaten us to paradise. And there is a small amount from this life. Allah says there's only a minority that are still striving and working and desiring paradise and have left this world and a small amount of losses. A savvy tuna savvy going allies praising the ones who race each other. See bap means race.
Race, Allah says is praising the people who race each other for the goodness not racing each other for worldly things. No, a savage, savage and Allah says and those who can beat other people in what in good deeds,
to beat each other to paradise to beat each other in high places in paradise. No, a normal Muslim does not want just the first place in Paradise, and what min wants to beat everyone and go to the photocell Allah This is what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said he said, the men know what's alone. Alfredo Sal Allah, when you ask Allah for gender, ask him for the highest place which is called alpha dose. Because these are the qualities of the believers. The believers are SAP your corn must be gone.
They always raise each other for goodness.
there existed two people, which the prophet SAW Selim told us about in the time of the Prophet.
And they used to challenge each other in everything they did.
They loved each other for the sake of Allah.
And they tried to pray and beat each other in prayer. So they pray night prayers, and it was fast more days. When this friend heard about his brother that he was fast two days is brother with fast three days. When he heard about in those years fasting every Mondays and Thursdays the other brother would fast day on day off. When he donated from his well this match, the other brother would beat him and donate that much. One day they went out to Jihad
with a cheese is fighting a battle against people who were attacking the Muslims
attacking the oppressing attacking the oppressed ones, driving people out of their homes. So they thought this is a great chance to reach the highest places in Paris because Allah loves those who defend the weak.
So they set out and they began to fight in the battle until they lost each other. Then one of them was a captive.
And those oppresses enemies, they caught this captive.
And they said to him, they began to torture him
and torturing him.
And every time they tortured him, he began to laugh.
And the mushrikeen said, Why are you laughing? We're torturing you. You're a captive.
He said, I am laughing because Alhamdulillah I am going to die a Shahid and beat my brother Titian.
That's it. I've beaten him.
And I said, What?
What is wrong with you? What is wrong with you Muslims? The same person like you we caught before he said the same thing before he died.
And then he started to cry.
But it's still died. And Allah says that they met each other in paradise.
And Mr. cona energen. Those who desire paradise work for it. They strive for it.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described a moment in this life and he said, A dunya seasonal movement with genital careful. It is the prison of a moment of a believer, and then is the paradise of a careful one who rejects a lot.
Yes, it is a paradise. Because they believe that this is the only life they're going to live. It's only one life. They say it's a short life, so we might as well make the best of it.
Get as much as we can from it. A moment doesn't think that way. He sees that everything in this world always caused him and her to doing her own things. It makes it difficult for us to worship Allah correctly and sincerely. It makes it difficult, especially in our time today, where the prophets are seldom said there will come a time when I will copy to an identical copy to Allah gemorah. To me now, the one who's holding on to his religion is like when he was holding on to a call of fire. It's intense. It's difficult brothers and sisters, but it is not difficult upon the one who anticipates a great reward in the hereafter lower law, a burden.
Imagine you are a prisoner or imagine you are
an outcast, a stowaway.
And you're stuck on an
Oh, you are in a strange land, you have no family, you have no food, you have no water. And you just anticipate to getting back to your family back to your home. Imagine what kind of a feeling that type of a person would be feeling. When he's in a strange land imprisoned in caged.
He will do anything and struggle in any way just to get back to his family, get back to his home, get back to security, wouldn't he?
Sometimes, even if it met his life,
if he's drowning, and he is stuck in the water,
he will struggle and strive in every way.
Even if it meant that he has to use the last piece of energy and breath that he has in order to reach land.
adonia decision in the world is like a prison for a moment and movement. One who desires Allah one who desires paradise. That's the moment are you one of them brothers and sisters.
If you desire paradise, then you work for it. And we Some people think that if you worship Allah, you should not work desiring paradise you should only work because you desire Allah only. But this is wrong and it's not that good of a Muslim because Allah, Allah says in the Quran.
They worship Allah, in hope and in fear.
wautoma and also greedy for gender, because in the time of the prophet SAW Selim, if the companion was in need, you would find that one of them so panela the one typical companion would always put his brother in his place. Allah says in the Quran, wait. Una emphysema, Locanda became kasasa. And they would deny themselves things when they themselves needed it in order to provide it for their brothers in Islam.
Yes, if they were attacked by some people, they would go out, and they would beat each other to the battlefield to defend the women and the children. Not only that, the companions would race each other. And he would find in those days read the Sierra, a companion would grab his brother from behind in his shirt, and he would pull him to the back, throwing him behind him. Why? Because he says to his brother in law, he will not die before me. I will defend you instead of you defending me. I will not let you defend me. I am not better than you. This is how they were. They loved each other to that extent because they love paradise, and I wanted to meet in paradise.
There was a woman called man she thought for
sure she was a woman who was the hairdresser of frowns daughter, Pharaoh, who said Malin Tula, Camila did not know any god but me.
And mushy thoughts around this hairdresser. She had embraced Islam in secret.
And when she was combing the hair of the daughter of Pharaoh, the king, the one who said he's a God, the comb fell to the ground.
And then she automatically subconsciously picked up the comb and said, Bismillah, In the name of Allah.
And this mesh that surround this hairdresser had five children, and one of them was still breastfeeding.
And then the daughter of Freetown said, Allah, Abby, are you saying Allah my father?
And she said, No, Allah, the father of Allah, the God of your father, and yourself and me.
As she became angry, she went to a father and said to him, Father, this woman worships another god beside you. He said, What? She know another god beside me who is there, call her to me. And they called her team. And then she came and stood a woman, a woman, brothers and sisters, in front of this great Pharaoh. And he said to her, who is your God? And she said, Allah is my Lord. He said, who is Allah? Said, Allah be what a book. Allah is my god and Joe's? Yes, when she was cornered and put into place. When she had the answer, she answered, she answered, and this is how the state of the woman's in the past and prison when they said, Robbie, Allah, Allah is my Lord. They were
But we don't care.
Because we know what we are heading towards. We know who our Lord is. And we say what we believe we're not lions. She said, Allah hora B or a book. And then he said, What? Bring the chains. They brought the chains they began to punish her and we, who is your daughter, she would say Allahu Akbar a book.
So he ordered for them to bring a large
and then he spilled hot boiling oil into this container.
large container, like a swimming pool.
And then he said, Bring me all of her children. And they brought them one by one. He said, worship Me, I am your God. She said never. So he brought her first son. And he threw him into the oil in front of our eyes, his meat and his flesh, fell off his body, and then his burn, disintegrated.
Then they brought her next time and she was firm, Allahu Akbar, and they burnt him. She could not stop them. And then her third and then her fourth, then finally her fifth, he was on her arm, and she was about to pull back.
She was about to pull back in front of the eyes of all the people, when all of a sudden and this is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, when all of a sudden Allah subhanho wa Taala, from above seven skies, made her child or infant speak while using the cradle. And he said, this video is very yummy. It's very yummy. lol, Huck, be patient, my mother, you are on the truth in the kitchen, Allah, Allah has promised you with a great Heaven, keep going.
And then they threw her son into the boiling water oil. And then she was next she knew that she was going to die. And then she began to cry. And Pharaoh said, Why are you crying stop. And she said,
I want crying. Because I want to ask you to do something for me. I don't know if he will do it. He said asked me for whatever you like. It said once you throw me into the oil, then I want you to together whatever is remaining of our bodies. And I want you to bury us together
in the same grave,
because I want to be resurrected with my children. And I wanted to go to dinner with my children. I don't want them to go out of my arms. And she knew what this life wasn't what the hereafter was. And so they threw her in the into the oil
and she ended up in Jenna. Just like that man that prophet who Allah does not mention his name in the Quran in surah T has seen what Jarrod juden minoxidil Medina TSR and a man came from the far end of the Medina yes sir meaning running towards them.
He said oh my people follow the messengers.
follow the ones who do not ask you for any wealth and are asking you for any wealth or any ajar any
exchange. And they are the ones who are rightly guided. What did they do to him? They brought him as in the Hadith. And then they put a hole into the ground and they Dig Dug him into the ground and then chopped his head off. And another heavy threw him down the well and they killed him. And then Allah resurrected him and put him straight into Jenna. And Allah says in the Quran, and then he replied by calling out yeah later komiya Allah moon be malvani Robbie Gianni any economy. He called out and says, oh, whoa, if only my people had known how Allah has forgiven me and what kind of a blessing he has put me in Jenna nyeem everlasting, everlasting luxury, everlasting freedom,
everlasting bliss, if only my people knew where I ended up. Yeah, has threatened
me at a middle restaurant in in LA Kenobi. He has
a great sorrow and sadness to the people servants of Allah. There isn't a messenger that comes to them, wanting them and promising them except that they would mock him. And this is our state today.
What about the Mirage around Pharaoh's wife, she also embraced Islam in secret. And when Pharaoh found out, he brought her as in the Quran, or merata Pharaoh
and the wife of Pharaoh in the Hadith, it says he brought her and then he stripped her naked, and hunger and hunger to the ceiling from her breasts. And he began to torture her. He tortured her and tortured her and she began to cry. And Allah says in the Quran, or Maria Medina time, Ron.
Well, Maria, he said,
that you wanna Genie?
Want a genie? mionetto call Milan, you mean? She said, Oh my god, she was being tortured. Our love built for me a palace in Jenna, and saved me from Pharaoh and saved me from the people who are oppresses. The Hadith says while she was being tortured, Allah showed her a palace inside of Jenna. And she began to laugh And Pharaoh began to torture even more saying what is making her laugh, torture her mom isn't she feeling this? And she died laughing. Little that he knows that Allah was showing her place her palace in general, which made her forget the pain was too overwhelming.
She died seeing her palace and she died. Going into Jenna was sabich una Sadiq Khan, those who beat us My dear brothers and sisters. What were they like? they sacrifice their wealth, their wealth, my dear brothers, they sacrifice their wealth for Jenna.
How? How can you buy this world with your money and sell the hereafter for a few pennies or a few dollars which you can earn in this life? Why? How How could you buy this worthless life when the prophet SAW Selim said,
A dunya this whole world one that we had to say
it is not worth a wing of a mosquito to Allah Spano de la Locanda to say when de la hegemon drink a drop of its water, if it was worth doing give a mosquito.
And there are a lot of Muslims, who placed the world on their head like a crown, when the companions used to place the world in their hands and their religion like a crown. If what is in if the crown went out of place, they would put what was in the hands on the ground. So the hereafter was on the head and when it went out of place, they dropped the dunya and they fixed their religion. Today, it's the opposite My dear brothers and sisters. Today it's the opposite.
They sacrifice their wealth. There was a time My dear brothers and sisters a story
of Abu Bakr, radi, Allahu anhu, and Omar,
Amara, the Allahu anhu used to always try to beat abubaker of their loved one. Because this was the quality, they always were jealous of each other. When someone did better good deeds, not jealous of each other when someone had more money or beauty or a voice or whatever.
And they would love each other and try to beat each other for that. So one day the Muslims were in need, and they were in great poverty and the prophet SAW Selim called the Muslims to bring what they have of wealth if they are able to do so. So I'm gonna be alone who said today? Well, I'm going to be abubaker their loved one. So he went to his house and he said, I'm going to take half of everything that I have in my house. And so even the earrings he took one earring and lift another hearing for his wife. his wealth is split in half everything. And he held a large baggage on top of his shoulder and he walked with him on his way he saw bobak rhodiola one and he was only carrying a
small amount. And he said, Today I have beaten him.
Yes, this is how they raced each other. When I reached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the professor Selim asked Amaro de la mano, what have you lived through your family? Have you looked after them? He said, Yes, sir. Rasul Allah, I've lived half of my wealth, said barakallahu li K. Amara. Then he turned to Abu Bakr of the Aloha and he said, What have you lived for your family? Abu Bakar you have brought a very small amount, etc. tola Houma la hora suta said, I left for them Allah and His messenger.
I left for them Allah and His Messenger, he left nothing but Allah and His Messenger, they will look after them. So Panama and that's when I'm going to help set the lightening I wish that I wore a hair on the chest of Abu Bakr radi Allahu en
la la la What about Masada? No, my hair resemble the prophet SAW Selim in his appearance and character who the prophet SAW Selim looked at him and knew that he has a beautiful tongue. So we sent him to Medina. He was the one who went to Medina and when the prophet SAW Selim migrated from Mecca to Medina, he found 88,000 people from Medina that were singing tada Alexandra Elena mithuna. Yet
Where did they come from from Musab no Mayor de la No. Before Islam, he was the wealthiest before Islam. He was the most handsomest before Islam used to look after himself, he needs to put so much Cologne and look after himself so much that the women of Mecca when they smelt his perfume, they would stand in a line to wait for him to pass, wanting to attract him. Yes, this was masaba nonviral, the Allahu anhu. When he embraced Islam, he donated everything you heard of his wealth in the cause of those who are more in need.
And then in a battle of war code, in the Battle of
masaba. Fighting like a lion defending the Muslims defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
when a spear attacked him,
it struck him and in swords one by one, until he had over 70 stabbings and he fell to the ground.
And then the prophet SAW sent them into companions. After the battle was over. He came to bury the Muslim in the Mujahideen, the Shahada, and then when I looked at masaba domain, they searched through his wealth, and it did not find anything with his wealth to cover him. All they could find in his house was a piece of cloth to wrap him up in the coffin. And when they would cover his head, his feet would show and when they would cover his feet his head would show
and the prophet SAW Selim said back in Bahia, Masada
we didn't find anything of the wealth, just to cover your whole body and bury you in
You don't need it at all for those who are in need.
For agenda to hear liquor, in general is where we shall meet. As for those who are led by the brothers and sisters,
and many, many more of them.
Brothers and sisters, their love for paradise made them do the most amazing things. They made them honorable and kings and the most wealthiest, even though in money, they didn't have much. They were kings even though they did not wear crowns and cloaks made of silk, and wool of the most expensive type. They were kings and honorable and happy, even though they did not have what normal people anticipate for and think of it to be happiness none. The sadness disappeared when they knew their last ones made it to paradise. If someone died from their family, it was enough for them for their sadness to go away when they knew that they had ended up in paradise. This is the story of haritha
haritha herati Allahu anhu, and his mother omo haritha.
He wanted to go out one time with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also in one of the battles, and remember my brothers and sisters, the Muslims never fought a battle when they started it. They only fought battles after the enemies had taken, driven them out of their lands, and massacred their children and raped the women.
How do you thought of the Allahu anhu between the age of 20 and 25 he came with the prophet SAW Selim to go out into Jihad for the first time. And his mother had prepared him to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then when they went out, my dear brothers and sisters, the Muslim men arrived to a certain place where there was a well, a well and one of the better whether there was a well so the prophet SAW Selim said to one of them one of the Sahaba to go and defend, protect that well at night when the Muslims are asleep, so that no one can come to that well and take it over from the enemies. And then in the middle of the night, when the Sahaba was protecting that,
well, all of a sudden Hadassah woke up, he woke up to go to the well to drink, because extremely thirsty when he was asleep. And then when he reached the cliff, he was about to go down into the well, this Sahaba he looked up into the cliff, and he thought he was one of the enemies coming to take over the world. And so he armed his arrow, and targeted towards him.
And then he speared him.
And the arrows struck Harry Thoreau, the Allahu anhu, right in his chest, and then he fell to the ground, and then the Sahaba race towards him, in order to see who it was. And then to his sadness and sorrow and to his shock, he found that it was how he thought of the Allahu anhu a Muslim had mistakenly killed another Muslim.
And as haritha was dying, he said La ilaha illa Allah and His soul escaped from his body. The Muslims found out the the the story and they went and they had their battle and then they returned back to the Muslim in. And then Omar harita came along his mother, searching for her son, when she saw all the soldiers returning back, she would look at that person and look at this person to see it was hard. But every time she went from one component to another, it was someone else. And then she grabbed one of the companions and she said to him, my son, my son, Where is my son? Is he a Shaheed? Is he a martyr? Was he killed? And of course of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And then the companions would say your son had no he wasn't in the battle. He wasn't in front lines. No, he wasn't killed. Shaheed I don't think he is a Shaheed and she began to cry and scream, and she said, Show me where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is. When she found him. She grabbed the problem that she came to the prophet SAW Selim, and she said to him, Yara sulam la Kohli tell me my son haritha is he engender? Is he and Jenna or is he not one law? If you tell me that he is not in gender, you will see what I'm going to do. I'm going to turn this world upside down.
This is what a mother feels Yes. When? Yes, a mother who understands Jen and paradise. She wants her center reach the highest place. But of course, in a worthy cause. Your rasulillah tell me and if it is not in Paradise, you will see what I will do. Then the prophet SAW Selim looked at her and he yelled, and he said, Yeah hability
Have you gone mad? Have you lost your mind? In harissa called mirtha shahidan?
Allah Allah in Jena in Jena
DOS, Allah Allah said, Are you crazy? Oh harita haritha died a martyr in Islam and he is not only in gender, it is many Jeanette it is many paradises, and he has targeted the highest place in alpha dose and other No, because he died with a sincere and proper intention.
Yes, my dear brothers and sisters
They sacrificed their lusts and their temptations. Also in love for paradise.
This is another story
of a companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a young boy
at the age of about 16 or 17. His name is Talia rhodiola Han,
Salah rhodiola. One who was one of the active youth in a time of the prophet SAW Selim, who obeyed the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his heart was firm in the belief of the Quran. And he was completely convinced in the existence of a law and he anticipated and die and what and sacrificed everything to regenda
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once sent
on an errand, meaning he sent him to do something.
And then Salah went,
it only would have taken him half a day to complete this errand.
When on his way, Salah was on his way back to the prophet SAW Selim, when he reached close to Medina, and he was passing by a small village, which was built of small tents.
And then he heard one of the tents as though there was water being spilt inside like a shower, as though there was something someone bathing in
Santa but not have the right to open that tent and to look who was inside of them. However, his lust, his hormones played up a bit at that time.
And the shaitaan deluded him into opening a tiny crack in that tent.
And he looked inside and accidentally, so his shock, saw a naked woman bathing.
Now he saw a naked woman bathing,
as his temptations, and less than humans began to rise.
He remembered a loss of Hannah who died.
And then he threw that then he closed the tent. And he screamed so high and Sophie yelled so loud, that he said, Man, let the conference What have I done? La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Nome, send the verse down to the prophets, I send them saying that I am one of the hypocrites, because at that time the Quran was being sent down. He said, Well La Jolla, the Quran is Quran, Allah, Allah Allah. Allah is now going to mission me one of the hypocrites, how can I worship Allah and then go and look into to see a naked woman in her tent? How can I say that I am a min Allah is surely going to say that I am one of the hypocrites. So you have to go to any lahoma admin African? Yes, he will. Yes, he will.
And he forgot all about returning back to the process. And he was too scared. He did not want to hear anything, because almost certain that there was a verse sent down in the name of Allah, but he is a monastic.
So instead of going to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he ran away, and he headed towards the cliffs.
And he stayed up there.
When he didn't return to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the prophet began to become worried.
And he said, Well,
I hope nothing has happened to him. The next day came and Salah hadn't hadn't returned. So we sent his companions outside to look for him. And when they went, and they tried and they return, they said the other sort of law we don't know where he is.
And they kept the search going for about a week.
Until finally the prophet SAW sent him sent Abu Bakr and Omar for a special task to look for him and find him. He said, Go look out into the outskirts of Medina, into the cliffs in the hills into the forest and in the trees, search every 10th ask anyone that you see and search for tala, I'm very worried about Salah.
And so they went out. And it took them weeks to search for him. Until finally they approached this village where they found a shepherd
with his goats. And they approached him and said, Have you seen a young man? His descriptions are so and so he is of this height. And his name is Darla.
You asked me about the crying boy.
They said what crying boy. He said the boy that weeps a lot.
There is a young boy that sits up in those cliffs over there.
Our village hears him every night crying.
And we don't know what his matter is.
Every day he comes down and he drinks a bit of milk from my goats. And then he would drag himself back up into the mountains.
And I said this is surely Salah. So abubaker number went up to the mountain and they search for him until they found him sheltered away underneath leaves. His clothes were were torn apart. He was withered away. He was so skinny, there was a disease in
His skin and he was extremely sick. They thought that he was dying.
So then they grabbed him. And as soon as I saw them, as though terror had happened to him as if the angel of death came to him, he tried to struggle and run away but they chased him and caught him. And then they grabbed him. And he said, Please, please don't take me to the prophet SAW Selim. Don't take me to him. Don't take me to him. I'm too scared. They said What is wrong with you take a hold of yourself.
He said, Please don't take me to him. I know what you are. I know what you are taking with you to him. Allah syniverse down concerning me Hasn't he is certainly centers down concerning me, hasn't he? He said, Yes. We we don't know why the prophet SAW Selim is asking for you. Please come with us. He said, Yes. I know why I know why. They said of Allah, we have to take it to him. It is a commitment from the Prophet. And so they dragged him on his feet towards the prophets, I send them
and they placed him in his house, and they told him Salah is at his home. So the prophet SAW Selim came to him, and he kneel down and kissed him on his forehead. And he said to him, yes, Allah, What is wrong? And he said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, are you hiding it from me? I said, What am I hiding? He said, Allah has sent down the verse concerning me that I am one of the hypocrites, hasn't he?
The prophet SAW Selim looked at him and he was crying.
And the protests and them said to him, no, yes, Allah, Allah has not sent anything in your cause.
And then, he said, I am going to be punished out of Salalah.
And then the prophet SAW Selim said to him, yesterday,
we met at the half, what are you fearing? And he said, I fear that Allah is going to place me into the lowest place of hellfire. I did a great senior Rasul Allah.
And then the prophet SAW, Selim said to him, at the half a minute, are you fearing the anger of Allah? He said, Yes. He said, what a Kindle movement.
A movement also has another belief, and there is hope, methodology. What do you hope for? What do you wish for? What do you yearn for? And he said, in your amatola, I hope for the mercy of Allah and His forgiveness. And in the process of them said, Allah heavy metals, you then asked Allah with that which you are hoping for? what he has done, Abdullah, Abdullah Hassan, and make your assumption about the love good, you will find it and then he made it to heart and the prophet SAW Selim read on his head and made it out for him. Then all of a sudden, Salah said yes, when Allah I feel as though there are 1000s of ants crawling on my body.
He said to him, what does he do that?
Can you really feel that? And he said, You said rasulillah
and I bet to go unconscious. And then promise I send them set them in moto cognis Allah because Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, it is that it has now come and struck and you you are dying. So c'est la la la la, and inshallah we began to repeat those words. He says, See Nayla handla la Mohammed Rasul Allah, and he repeated those words, until finally his soul escaped from his body.
He was forgiven.
But because my dear brothers and sisters, he used the hook that he had with the last marathon.
And he desired paradise. So Allah gave him just like those whom Allah mentioned in the Quran, when they had three loaves of bread. And then a poor person came and knocked on their door. And he said to him, miskeen, miskeen miskeen I'm a poor man. So they brought out their peace of love and gave it to him. And then the second day, their door knocked. And then they said, your team, your team, your team and orphan, an orphan. And so they gave him that second loaf of bread. And then the third man came a second day and knocked on their door, and he said, I see. I see, I see a captive a captive. They said, he's a loaf of bread. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran,
mala humpy Myskina
Timo Sierra, in
in from Iraq, Bina young woman
luck last night dialysis and they feed their wealth out of love for Allah and desire for gentlemen.
And I see you're a captive and a poor person and an orphan.
They would say to them, we are feeding you, not wanting thanks for any reward from you. We seek the pleasure of Allah and we fear a Day that will come to us on the Day of Judgment. Allah says, Allah who can do and so Allah save them from the bad misfits of that day.
And he rewarded them. With that which they had Be patient for. Nam, Jenner requires patience My dear brothers and struggle.
Jonathan O'Hara, paradise and silk.
What dunya tonali him Villa Lynette cuckoo Lila, and its shade and histories are upon them. And it's fruits, easy to go to reach and add palaces of gold and everything that ever wished for and they have servants who would come around to them with golden bra with golden plates and golden cups giving them grapes and fruit and water and drink and we stone if he had got sun canopies, agile haircuts and jobina. I am here to send my son Sabina and Allah subhanaw taala gives them water from a fountain which is so beautiful and tasty. They have never tasted anything like it before from a fountain cold says Sabina Nam, Jenna, Jenna Tanaka has said,
as great and as far as the heavens in the sky and earth.
And they also sacrifice their lives.
This is my last story, my dear brothers and sisters.
This is a story
which shocked me Willow Hill.
And there is a story that existed in about the 10th century.
In the Islamic era.
In that time, Muslims are attacking
sorry, enemies of Islam who were ruthless.
were attacking the Muslims in a place called Iraq, in Iraq.
And they had invaded the homes and raped the women
and stole their children and killed the old men. This is in history.
Because they said Our Lord is Allah.
After doing so, there was a man at that time who existed he was a great scholar and a great leader in barrows. His only cause and motive was to defend the Muslims wherever they may be wherever they were killed or oppressed. His name was Abu Kodama.
This man Abu Kodama was one and he was very courageous. He was one sitting in the masjid when a group of people came up to him, and they said to him, yeah, Abu Kodama, we have free time right now, can you tell us about an amazing story that happened during your time, we want to hear the most unusual and surprising story ever to be heard. Can you entertain us your abracadabra and make us come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And then abracadabra set for a while and get them when everyone was silent, like you are right now. He said to them.
I recall one of the most shocking stories that ever happened. Until today. I don't know how to explain it.
He said, One time I went to that place of Iraq.
And I stood up in the mosques.
And I went out to the city where there were young Muslims to recruit soldiers who are ready to defend the borders of Iraq to stand guard over there.
And if the enemy attacks, to be strong enough to defend the women and the children, as Allah says, In the Quran, what is wrong with you are believers that you did not go and fight in the cause of Allah, when the weak and feeble people are calling out Oh, Allah send people to save us.
We are responsible for the weak ones,
whoever and when it wherever they may be.
And so it began to recruit people.
Only a few gathered with him. And so he began to ask for some wealth and money.
After the day had ended, he rented a small apartment, a little place to stay in. He said, I went into this place and I stayed there.
And then just after I shared when I was praying my night prayer, I was about to pray my winter.
When all of a sudden in the middle of the night, everything is quiet. You can hear the crickets outside when my door began to knock. So Pamela, nobody knows me here. I've just arrived yesterday.
And already my door is knocking and Someone's knocking at my door.
He said so I slowly went and opened the door.
And in front of me there stood a woman.
I could not see her face because she had covered all of her body. Everything.
And while she was covering her hand, she reached out her hand and before she asked
In that she asked, Are You the man who was calling out for recruitment today? We'll use the man who was gathering wealth in order to go and guard our borders and protect us.
He said, Yes.
You were the one who was calling to jihad.
He said, Yes, I am doing.
So she said, Please open your arms, your hand, and he opened his hand, and she dropped a piece of cloth, which was wrapped up into his hand.
And he said, Take this, it isn't a man. It is a trust.
And she ran off. That's all she said. I wanted to ask her many other questions that she had no reply.
So when inside and I opened that cloth, and I found a piece of paper
with something written on it,
and a thick lock of hair.
I read the paper and the paper said,
Today you are calling out for recruitments to fight with you and protect the weak people.
I am a woman and unable to fight.
And I don't have enough wealth to give you
some aha heart was struck with shock and sorrow.
When I did not find anything to give you so I went home and cut a look of my hair.
And that is the one you see in this cloth.
The only thing which I can give
to the cause of this is my lack of here. I asked you to please use it as your rain. Any the rope that would see the horse
so that maybe Allah will recognize this and know that I was fighting with you in that she had
even though taking a look over here of a Muslim woman giving it to a man is not allowed in Islam.
But Has she had spirit reached that stage? She couldn't stop herself.
She said, and tomorrow someone will come to you. He's a recruitment.
See if he is worthy.
And that is it. He said so panela What kind of a woman is this?
So I took the lock of hair. And I did put it onto my ranks.
And I the next morning I gathered the troops and we went out in the middle of the battlefield.
When we reach the battlefield
in either borders, we noticed that a group of Army after a day began to make their way towards us. And so I got the army ready. And I told them to stand guard.
As we were about to move forward. I heard a voice from afar distance calling out. Yeah, me.
Me Wait for me my uncle.
He looked back. And he found a fierce warrior on his horse galloping fiercely towards him. And he had his face covered like this.
As soon as this man approached him, a vocoder Mellotron he said, How can I help you? He said, wait for me Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, who has written for me to meet you and unite with you?
He said, Come down, come down and take a bit of breath. He said, You don't understand. I made a Doha all my life to have this opportunity. And I thought that you were going to beat me Allah, Allah decreed that I was going to unite with you Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.
He said, asked me, What do you want? He said, I want to fight with you. I want to have part in this.
I will Kodama said to him.
Show me your face, I want to know who you are.
And then he reluctantly took the cloth off his face.
And abracadabra said
and I looked at his face.
And before me,
was the most beautiful face that I'd ever laid eyes on
the face of a young man,
about 17 or 18 years of age. His face was like the full moon in its brightness.
And I noticed that he was young. And I said, Son,
What experience do you have?
How can you come and fight with us? No, you are not allowed to come and fight with us. You are too young, returned back. And he said, but my mother came to you last night. He said your mother said this. My mother I said Who is your mother? And he said she's the one that gave you a lock of her hair. And she told you to look after me. Sir, is that your mother? He said
He said, You should go back and look after her son. Don't come here and fight.
And he started to hold on to him, the young boy. And he said to him Naboo, Kodama, no, no. My father fought in Jihad now to fight to, I want to defend. Please accept me. I have great experience, I have fought many battles, and I'm an experienced horse rider.
I'm a really good, experienced person, what law he will find me that I'm able to help you a lot.
When he insisted on him, and he insisted on him a book a demo with him, he said to him, okay, if you are insisting on traveling along with us, then you have to stand in the last line. And your work is to prepare food for the soldiers. Is that fair enough? I'll do that.
they went out.
And sorry, the enemy wasn't approaching, but they got they had news of the enemy approaching.
And so the time of lunch came, and the soldiers wanted to eat.
And he sent out to this young man, his name was Mohammed to guard and prepare the meal.
And then when about one or two hours passed, no food had arrived. Abracadabra said so I went searching for him and thought what had kept him so long.
And when I arrived, I found the pot was boiling in front of him most active amongst all the men
who would race after this one and race after that one, help this person help that person
is very active during the day, I became amazed how how agile this young boy is how enthusiastic this young man is. And so I thought, I felt sorry for him. And I thought maybe he needs some rest. So I did not interfere and I did not
disturb him. And I began to prepare and finish and complete off the meal myself. But as I was staring, he said, I heard a small sound coming from him. So I looked immediately at him. And all of a sudden, I see his face begin to smile. He's asleep.
After a few moments, the smile grew. A few moments later, his teeth began to show. And then even a few moments later, he began to laugh in laughter and giggle.
As he was laughing his laughter began to intensify until finally a work suddenly, and he saw me in front of him with open eyes. And his smile immediately failed them immediately faded away.
As though he was shocked that I was there in front of him, and he did not want me to be there, as though he had a secret.
And then I sit and then he he got up immediately. And he said to me, I'm sorry. I didn't know that I had gone to sleep. Please. You don't have to prepare the food. Please let me look at them. I said no, you sit down.
Well, no, he I will not let you do anything until you tell me. Why were you laughing?
He said I was laughing. I said yes. You are laughing You laughter could reach
a few meters away.
Some level Kodama, since you saw me laughing, and you went, let me go. I will tell you what I was dreaming about. But you have to keep it a secret between you and I.
For if I tell you, maybe Allah will not accept my reward of coming here. Maybe it will be insincere.
So please tell me, he said, I'm listening with open ears, I really want to know what he was seeing in his dream.
And then the young boy said,
I slipped. And then I noticed as if the last hour had come, the world ended.
And the Day of Judgment came,
everybody was looking up into the sky shall be certain episodes.
And then all of a sudden, I hear a voice calling out, grab Mohammed, and take into paradise.
Amongst everyone a light came to me a light and took me away. And then there was a man next to me, a very handsome man, his light emanated from his face to reach the far corners of what I could see. And it took me into gender.
And I asked him, Who are you? And he said, I am one of your servants, which Allah has made for you in gender in your palace.
And he said, Where are you taking me? This is when he began to smile, said I'm taking you to your wealth, and to your family, and to your belongings and possessions in your pelvis in general. And so his smile grew more.
And then when he reached the great gates and the great doors of his large position, he said I cannot enter here
for you have women inside and I'm not allowed to set eyes upon them.
His smile groom
and so he entered. He said and then I found many beauty
their light was so great
that I thought if they were too relieved to see it to show themselves on Earth, they would like the whole earth.
And they grabbed my arm and took me away. And I thought, are you my wives?
And I said, No, no, no, we are just your servants.
But you have your princess wedding inside and
inside the tent, reclining on her silk sheets, waiting for you.
And so I entered. And all of a sudden, I see a woman,
which almost made my heart escape made my soul escape from my body.
And I said to her, who are you, and a smile grew when his teeth began to show.
And she said, I am the one whom Allah promised you.
I am your wife in general. I am the one who Allah gift record for you.
I'm at dededi ma.
Min karate I own
and no one knows what Allah has disrupted for them in general,
even for the women.
And then he said,
he came to extend this arm and touch her.
And then she grabbed his arm and returned it back gently. And she said to him, No, yo, Mohammed. Now
I asked Allah to save you from any bad acts. I am not using it.
And it is because you have saved yourself from haram acts with other women. Allah gave me to you. So keep yourself pure here, Mohammed.
What am I doing? Rather than in the photo? Our our meeting is tomorrow. And we shall break our past together because Mohammed used to fast everyday one day on Monday off.
And then he said, when she was speaking to me, I began to laugh. And I really wanted to approach her and she would say no, yeah, Mohammed Not now. No, yeah, Mohammed Not now. And I began to love and love until I woke up.
That is my story. Please keep it a secret between you and me. Otherwise, my rewards will be gone.
So it's my secret.
He said, I will call them I kept my eyes watching this young boy.
The next day, the army, the enemy arrived. It was fierce. And we attacked and charged. I look behind me where Mohammed was supposed to be standing. And all of a sudden he was right in the front.
And he did not have any experience in fighting because he could not hold his sword.
Mohammed had deceived Abracadabra, insane to me has experience.
He said I could not reach him anymore. But he was right in the front line.
And he would call out
the message of his mother. Yeah, evening, either lucky.
fella to only him to Barack, if you meet them, then do not run away and show them your back. He will call that like that. Allahu Akbar. And he would fight whoever would fight him. He would fight whoever would hold a sword against him. And against the Muslims. He would protect that person and then that person.
Until finally abracadabra said dusk grew so much in my eyes, and I lost sight of him. I did not know where he was. Finally, Allah gave us victory because we were fighting for a noble cause. And at the end of the victory, we started looking for our martyrs.
And then I just wanted to find Mohammed, the young boy, I did not care about anyone else. I kept searching and searching. When all of a sudden I see at a distance, a young boy holding out his arm and saying I'm me. I'm me, and I could barely hear him. So I ran to him as fast as I could. And I grabbed his beautiful head as though he was my son. And I looked at a face at a face that was once youthful. Had a face that was once beautiful at a face that was so handsome, and a body that was so young and strong.
The horses had trampled him.
The wheels had crushed his bones,
his face. His face was undescribable.
And he was holding a piece of his shirt which was ripped.
And he was taking deep breaths, dying.
And then abracadabra held his face and he began to cry. He said my son, I told you that the war is very fierce. Didn't I tell you that the battle is not what you think? Did I tell you and Didn't I tell you that you're still young? I told you my son and you had to go forward. Why have you done this to yourself?
He looked at him and he said to him, I'm evil Kodama. This is what my mother raised me for. My father died for this cause as well do you want me to do and to deny Me and you have all people the army about Kodama, you are telling me to go back when Allah says in the Quran and what do you fear when fighting in his cause?
He said to me, I mean, this is what I want. Well, lucky, I could see my palaces in front of me. If only you could see what I could see.
And then he said, but I require one thing of you.
when you reach her,
she'll be very saddened and she may not believe you that I have died in the cause of Allah. So I want you to take this piece of my shirt, and show it to her, so that she can relieve her sadness. And know that I am in Jenin and what she has raised, she will also be in Geneva with me. Let her know that to not be sad and my mother
died. And you will be with me forever in eternity in gender. My mother, I died in the cause of Allah now. It'll be a guarantee that you will be with me and we will be together with my father.
He said because nothing else will come her heart.
He said the army of Boko Haram I also have a young sister. Her name is Fatima. She's only eight years old. She has grown up with me to love me so much when my father passed away. And I love her extremely. However my um, her love I have never seen like that before she's too attached to me.
When you reach her, please try to look after her. Please try to calm her down. Please try to say soothing words to her, for I fear her consequence. She loves me too much. And don't show her show her my shirt. I will Kodama promised. And then while he was holding him in his arms, young Mohamed began to smile and his smile grew. And then it grew even more and then even more until he began to giggle with laughter. And he said yeah poco de la ilaha illAllah in Isla de de Muro de Zhang vision be the woman that he saw in his dreams. Her name was model D. Model D, the pleasing one. He said, Yeah, I mean, I bow Kodama, look at her, she has just come down from the sky as she is lying beside
me holding my hand. She's waiting for me. I'm a law. So
he gave me what He has promised. I am going to agenda with Medallia she will keep me company.
secret between you and I. And then he died while he was doing while he was biting onto his lip like this and saying to Abracadabra, yeah, on me remember our secret? And he died and went to a loss of Hanover, Tyler and noble this. And then I will Kodama went back to his land into his will into the village in Raqqa. And all the women went out to meet the Mujahideen.
And then came the mother of Mohammed, searching for him. And then she came up to Abu Kodama. And she said to him, my son, Where is my son? Have a Kodama looked at her and said, he passed away. And he says, He fought in the front line without returning back and he did what you had advised him and what you trained him to do. He said, I did not believe you. I don't believe you, as just as his son said. And then he said, but he told me to give you the shirt. And she looked at his shirt, and she looked at an examined it. And she knew that it was the blood and the stains of her young son Mohammed. And then she cried and put her arms up to Allah. And she said, Alhamdulillah The one who
has saved my son, I will now definitely be guaranteed that I will be reunited with him and my husband.
But before that,
abou Kodama saw something, a young girl,
racing towards every man fluttering like a butterfly,
touching this man and looking at him, then touching another man and looking at him, then turning another man around and examining his face like a young child does.
And I will call them I knew that this was Fatima, looking for her brother.
And so I went up to Fatima.
And I grabbed her, and I hugged her and kissed her. And I said to her,
what are you looking for? And 14? I said, my brother, Mohammed was Mohammed was Mohammed. Do you know where Mohammed is? Do you know where Mohammed is my brother, I love him. I want to see him. And he promised me that he will return because Mohammed said to Abu Kodama, he said to him before he died, I promised my sister that I'm going to return otherwise she would have never left me.
But I'm not going to return. So he promised him that he's going to come back. Where is he?
abracadabra started to cry. And he said to him fathima your brothers
As salam aleikum to you, and he says that soon, you're going to meet him in genma inshallah.
She said, Jenna, did he die? abracadabra said his buddy died a noble cause before he could finish this word. Fatima took a very deep breath and if she fell unconscious to the ground,
he came to pick her up but the mother raised her and she said leave her. And she took her daughter away. And into the room. Abracadabra knocked and knocked. But it was too late. He heard the mother inside crying and saying, Oh my Lord, my husband died for your cause and his agenda insha Allah, my son, I have sacrificed him for you. Yeah, Allah and I have raised him Please do not do not deny me my presence and my unity with him engine and now my daughter has passed away and followed her brother. Yeah, Allah, my husband, my son and my daughter. They are all to you in Manila, when Allah Hara Gian so Allah we belong unto him We shall return our law guarantee me a place in general with
them, our law unite me with them, and she began to cry until her voice faded away into the darkness. I will Kodama kept knocking, but she would not open for him.
It said so I lift her
and I went away.
Until this day, my D companions. The story has remained unexplainable to me. And I do not know this. I did not know what happened after that.
These mighty brothers and sisters were the stories of those who fight sincerely in their hearts towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. These were the ones who sincerely in their heart struggled for gender.
The we struggle for gender in any way.
Are we able to sacrifice something my dear brothers and sisters in any way? Now Allah, I see that a lot of us think about themselves before others. A lot of us think about our needs and our stomachs and our pockets before any other people. I see even more than that. Some of the Muslims today who claim to be Muslims.
we take river and usury from the bank because we are in need in need for what they want to buy.
an expensive house with river they want to reach that objective of $100,000 This is the necessity
well as a builder,
and they say they're in the thinking about the shape on ways. We see people who do not even think about others anymore. don't donate even a date, a date from their pockets.
For the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
when you are filling up petrol
forget about filling up $25 fill up $20 and leave that $5 in donations.
When you buy your cigarettes, forget about paying for a cigarette today for a box today. Leave it till tomorrow and rather put that money for donation.
Donate to the causes that are ongoing and ongoing charity ongoing knowledge which will benefit you in your grave
which encourage this and work towards it.
Think about your brothers before you think about yourselves.
This is the way Allah subhanaw taala wants us to be my dear brothers and sisters. In these stories there are examples and there were wisdoms. I have left you with these wisdoms and with these examples. Allah says focus will settle kasasa and I ended with this Allah says focus on Senior Counsel also allow me at the
law codec and IP consulting in
La Jolla canopy consulting in my
Ghana Heidi thingy.
And so relate the stories to them so that they may contemplate and think not stories that are lies, but stories of true effect that will make you come closer to Allah. And intergender I asked Allah subhanaw taala to unite us in gender. I asked Allah Spano Tata to make us one of those who truly desire gender. For if he did not desire agenda, how can you enter it? We ask Allah to save us from hellfire. Allahumma save us from Hellfire, Allah whom we seek refuge in You from your anger. Allahumma we asked you to let us unite and drink from the hole from the fountain of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam our law make us one of those whom the prophets and the martyrs whom the
prophets and the martyrs will envy and be jealous of on the Day of Judgment. They are the ones who are meant to have boon though are the ones who love each other for the sake of Allah. Allah let us be on high towers on the Day of Judgment, by our love for one another through our love for one another. Allah Allah let them nanogen Allah let them know Hannah and
llama let them not go through, let them not undersell. sebelah let them know that the sneem one of them not an Alfredo said Allah, Allahu Allah. I mean I thank you for listening My dear brothers and sisters, so panic alarmed Moby Dick a shadow and learned a stuffy look over to a lake. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Brothers and sisters Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah. inshallah, one take too much of your time. For questions and answers. We probably won't go through them all.
I'll go to the first question.
The two stories the question asks the two stories that you said Are they really true?
I don't know which story two stories but they are all true brother or sister and all the other stories before were based on Hudis read the original original Howler soul. There are also little tiny booklets which scholars have also written a lot of tapes that talk about these things.
And the last story is from a book called albida when he talks about the history of Islam, and I also heard that story from a chef,
a chef from reality, and it's it's known, it's a known type. It's a known story. We never tell false stories, because false stories is not what a Muslim says. It's haram to tell a story which is a lie. Unless you tell the people it's not true. So these are true stories Mark my words.
Sarah, Molly, Molly.
It is stated
that we do not enter Jannah till after Judgment Day. And this is a known fact.
I am just curious as to why so many hadiths state that certain companions of intergender and meet each other they etc.
brother or sister in Islam? First of all, not everyone enters Jenna.
conditionally after the Day of Judgment. There are people who beat other people to gym. There are people who go in
without being judged at all, such as the Shahada. And did you hear the Hadith of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim that says, 70,000 of my own martial intergender without his sabar, that without judgment or any type of torture.
So genma is not necessarily not necessarily entered after Judgment Day has ended, but you will go in groups. But you have to wait at the dawn of gender until the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim enters it first. That's the only difference.
So the first part is not affect that everyone antigen after Judgment Day.
But as soon as Allah descends to begin the judgment, then people start to enter a question of meaning in groups, not as soon as they are resurrected. But as soon as the Prophet Muhammad SAW send them prostrates to Allah and says, And Allah then descends when his anger comes down and he says to the prophet SAW send them yeah Mohammed arafat suck Lift your head what was about to shut powers caltopo
making decision I will give you an ask for whatever you like I will give you an end he says era Almighty Almighty my nation my nation, and then Allah begins to call out into such a people in an enter such a people in and so on and so on and judgment here and judgment there.
why had its many holidays state of our companions and others wintering agenda as though it is speaking about the present time. Brother and sister This is the way Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks because to Allah, time has already passed.
Did you hear the verse in the Quran where Allah says we're in a Yeoman en de la HCA elfi Sen. Min methadone, one day to Allah is like 1000 years of what we count.
And that's only one day to Allah, everything is already happened to Allah. Secondly, Allah has knowledge of everything is already there before he began creation before he even created the pen before time, Allah knew. And so he speaks a lot smarter speaks as though it is now to us. But because he does not need to say in the future, because the future
can change. But to Allah He already knows what the future is. So it does not need to say in the future.
The question asks, I hear you and understand you with every minute. So
struggled to attain Jen. Yes, that is one of the main point. But I have a concern. How can you struggle and want to feel this sense of poverty and struggle? If you have a family who are Muslim, but love the banks, and go against everything you do,
according to Dean and Islam, and you're only so young?
This is a question from a sister. May Allah reward you for having that concern?
First of all, you don't need to have that sense of poverty. No.
You don't need to feel poverty. No, no, this is not what the message was.
Feeling poverty is one thing.
But when poverty doesn't affect you is another thing.
A Muslim is not affected by poverty.
And in Islam, be careful.
There are people who you are, who have rights over you. And you're responsible for to provide them with wealth first. Such as, for example, the husband is in charge of his wife and his children first, and then his parents.
Your Sadiq Khan, is to them first. And if you have nothing else, let it be to them. Keep that in mind.
A person who feels poverty is a person who is afraid of poverty.
And what I mean by that a person who feels poverty in a sense where he is afraid of poverty is not a good feeling. Because the shaitan says, Allah says in the Quran, a shaitan. We are here to come on Fokker, he promises you that you're going to become poor. This is what happens to people who go to banks of river. Why did they go there? When they say to us, it is a necessity. Do you know what that necessity is? No, they haven't ended up on the street. No, they do have a place to live in. They're renting, for example, what they're talking about is the future.
One day, they're going to end up on the street. They don't know what the future is. That's what the shaitaan is promising them is promising them property. This type of feeling is not a good feeling. But to know that you are a little bit poor in money, ask a lot for more. There's nothing wrong with that. to want to be rich, there's nothing wrong with that. But the fear poverty, the fear the future making you go to do heroin, that's what we're talking about.
Many companions struggled for gender and loved it, but they were rich that they gave from their wealth, their rights.
You ask your family goes to banks, and you're so young, and I extra to that urs system, a female, a female often has a list effect against the father of her brothers, for example, because men these days, they have so much pride. They can't accept an advice from a child or a woman, which is quite very On the contrary, in Islam.
Sister you are to do what you were able to do with your tongue. First of all with your hands if you're able to change something with your hand, change it.
If you can't change it with your mouth, speak good words of wisdom. Like what the property is to speak.
If you can't,
if you're unable to speak with your mouth, what I mean by that, not that if you speak to them, and they don't listen, none of that's giving up hope. I'm saying if you can't meaning there's something stopping you from talking.
Then the promises are seldom said then hide it in your heart. And watch out for yourself. Allah says yeah, yohannes Allah can be unfussy comme la eurocom ambala. Oh people, you have to be worried about yourselves. No one can harm you if you are guided.
So this is what you do system. You are so young.
Youth is not a an obstacle insha Allah. But try your best and earn the rewards. Be sincere to Allah wanting Jenna.
Guiding someone is in the hands of a lot. It's not your decision. It's not our it's not my it's not my business. Whether someone accepts or rejects My business is that I do my duty. And that's all that Allah asks of you. Don't stress. Don't feel any doesn't sort of blame yourself for anything. Do your worship properly, do your duties as far as you can, and save yourself first?
Someone has made a statement here from the sisters.
A word of advice to my brothers.
As a teacher, I know that sometimes the young boys and girls can feel intimidated by the elders, religiously, mentally and physically.
I want to ask a favor. I want the young people here today and not to feel shy and hold back in searching for knowledge. I want them to look at the youngest halifa in Islam. His name is Mohammed Al Fateh.
Take him as an example. Constantinople constantinian
he opened Constantinople after the Crusaders took it. He was only 17 years of age and was the head of the Muslim ummah. I urge all of you to find out the story and from
and and search for more like Him and maybe one day become like him. inshallah. I asked us to make the Omar Ahmed Mohammed sauce and and pious and loving to one another. Somebody once asked me, How do you think the Muslims will become or what they would come to? I answered, look at its youth change
for agenda, just like a low halen. Well, yeah. And yes, as though this person took the words out of my mind and spoke them.
Also another question, the question that asks, I have been practicing Islam for three years now. And I wore hijab, which is in the past tense, but I have taken my hijab off eight months ago, I can't handle it. Will I enter paradise?
A person to ask this question means just by asking that question, means that they are concerned about what Allah thinks.
This is the first step to a sister wearing her hijab in the beginning, not just hijab first step to praying first step to fasting first step to donating all of these things. To recognize Allah subhanho wa Taala.
When you ask this question, it means that you are concerned about what Allah thinks so hamdulillah This is good.
Just because of that, and I can't really answer if you're entering gender, I can't say that I'm entering Gen. Mohammed saw Selim himself said, will lie no one will enter gender
without the mercy of Allah they said not even knew yet. So I said not even I only if Allah wants to give me mercy. So no one can guarantee Asian and I cannot judge who enters gentlemen who enters Hellfire, even if you didn't wear the hijab, but what I can save in a law
which means that inshallah you will antigen insha Allah,
every Muslim will antigen, every Muslim who never died with shimek will enter gender.
But I have to say what the prophet SAW sent him said in general, not to the questioner herself or himself,
herself, because this is a hijab woman.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah says in an intelligent any bukoba you no matter how nanhu Naka Ferran come say
hello and Karima if you can guarantee that you're if you avoid the major sins, I will pardon you from all the minor sins and let you intergender without any punishment.
The province of our send them also says any person who dies with a major sin, his meta is to Allah, Allahu Allah, Allah.
And then he says, each major sin has a punishment.
Wherever the prophet SAW Selim says talks about a punishment or away from Allah, know that it is a major sin.
Since you asked me about his job, then I say to you that through Hadith and dedied, hijab is formed, it's compulsory, because commanded in the Quran and commanded on the tongue of the prophet SAW Selim in Bukhari and Muslim internment in Abu Dawood and then Nyssa e lb hockey and other books.
His job his fault, just like select his fault, and whoever abandons a fault. Of course, his job is less than, than than the prey but it is afforded still,
with the abundance afforded which Allah has commanded compulsory,
then there is a punishment for that.
With a law punish is the woman who takes over hijab or doesn't is his concern.
A woman who was a prostitute as a process, and I'm told us energen
because she gave a dog water to drink, but she believed in Allah. So who am I to say that a woman who doesn't wear hijab specifically will not enter? But I say that the prophet SAW Selim said
I saw in Johanna.
People, lemma when I'm in Kabul cops, I never saw them or never known of them before.
And he said, women kaseya to Nigeria, to Isla to mamina.
They are closed but at the same time, they are still naked.
They move from side to side.
In temptation, tempting men
suggest seductive walks
showing their bodies
Hola kasnia Mattila booked in Medina the heads are shaped and fashioned
any like palm trees or humps and this is a fashion
they will not enter Paradise and they will not be able to smell its fragrance winery haha Lucia domain Mustapha Tikka de Vaca. And although the fragrance of Paradise can be smelled from distance of so and so
this means that the woman who doesn't wear her hijab and Allah only knows again, in general, Allah only knows of her state.
She will not antigen in the beginning when Allah says antigen,
but rather she will be detained
or she will be punished
in whatever means a lot nose off
and then she will be saved because of the intercession of the prophets of Allah while he was setting them. Now this is in general, this is by default, as you can say.
But then again, we cannot say who enters in who doesn't.
Only There Was an Old Woman Who was bad to her neighbors and the promises and the companions asked him at a Salalah
she prays a lot and she fasts a lot and donate some up in the night she prays but she's bad character to her neighbors. He said the hierarchy in the heaven now. There is no good from her she's in fire. They said her neighbor is another woman who doesn't pray as much doesn't donate as much but she's good to her neighbors and to people. As a lucky man that he said in her field she is engine
another woman entered Hellfire because she trapped a cat. She didn't feed it not that she let it go out to eat from what Allah provided her
Jani only Allah knows really specifically who enters in who doesn't. But in general, you're in danger. In general, the brothers as well I'm sorry about that to say, who shave their beards are also in danger.
You're at risk risking it. Any it's like when a person passes a red light drives past the red light.
You are at risk.
Either there is a camera or a police may see you or you may be recorded. Or you may not. You may get away with it. person who shaves their beard of the men it is a fault. And a woman who takes over Asia which is also a fault. You are placing yourself at risk. My dear brothers and sisters,
then place yourself in risks.
Another question? Is it permissible to pluck your eyebrows just clean it up? Not remove the whole thing.
My eyebrows as a men, I'm not allowed to pluck them either.
So what about the woman? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
lon Allah and now Missa Missa Allah curses the woman who plucks the eyebrows and the woman who plugs them for her. Well where Shema when was Toshima
and the woman who tattoos another woman, a woman who doesn't who gets attended for herself
and the woman who files her teeth or makes them wider in order to look nicer just for nothing like that.
So, you said pluck your eyebrows then you said just cleaned it up, not removed the whole thing
while cleaning up involves plucking. So if removed if cleaning up involves plucking, then it's the same thing since there isn't it? Oh brother.
However, I would like to leave you with one thing.
In a case of extreme necessity, you're allowed to pluck your eyebrows, such as if you are happen to be a woman and it is very rare. A woman obviously has abnormal eyebrows. Then Allah does not oppress you. He allows you to plug enough to look make them look normal. And to pluck them to make them look like Models Inc or something.
And also you're allowed to pluck between the eyebrows. Right? In the Arabic term the eyebrows are the ones directly above the eyes. So you can clean up what's above your nose. But above the eye, this is a something which a lot of takes offense to because as though you are altering a loss creation altering a laws, art.
So be careful of that.
10 minutes. Lots of the brothers go to watch the football.
I've advised my husband not to go but he doesn't listen. I don't feel it's a place for Muslims. The music is very loud. The cheerleaders
etcetera, are going off. I'm an extremely jealous wife. I believe I have this right. Please advise my husband and brothers, may Allah reward you, Jenna Jazakallah hyena,
okay, I'll split it into little sections because some things are agreeing Some things are done.
Lots of brothers go to watch the football. I don't think a lot of them do. Insha Allah. As far as I know, I think a lot of them.
A lot of them do, actually, but not the religious ones. I'm talking about the religious ones. But
if you do go to the football,
first of all brothers and sisters, any obviously, it's a harem environment, because there's music and cheerleaders just like there is on television or in the market or anywhere else that you go. The only difference is that when you go for a necessity, and music has to be there and you can't avoid it. That's different to when you go directly to the football. And you know that the environment is not good over there. You had a person who's sitting next to you drinking alcohol and going off his head, women sitting next to you and also screaming foul language when they're very small. And the man loves to look at that. You know, I mean, a lot of men who have evil hearts, I mean, they go
there, some of them to have that pleasure. When you ask them, why can't you just watch it on television? They say no, we have to go there because we have to live the moment and scream. That's what one person said to me. Because Brother, what do you think I go there, I can't hear anything. I can't really see what's going on down there. But I'd love to scream and swear at this play and swear at that player just like everyone else. If you and if this and if that
now this is what happens. It's a place of facia avoid the places which the shaitan hangs around him My dear brothers. Now it says here as well, I, I have extreme, I am an extremely jealous wife after comment on this system, because
one of the problems that can exist between a relationship is being too jealous, any unnecessarily any there has to be trust between each other. If there's no trust, there's really no relationship. And I emphasize this one,
there has to be trust. And by him going to the footy, the owner is not taking your rights away. No, if we provide you with other times, not taking a right away, is actually taking his own rights away.
By placing himself in a place which Allah hates.
Don't have extreme jealousy, chin it down a bit, tone it down a bit in sha Allah. Because if you have extreme jealousy, goodness, it'll only get worse.
And you're living in Australia here it's it'll even get even worse and worse and worse. And you there will be times where your husband, husband is probably completely innocent. And you will
slammed him with things that he is innocent of. And on the Day of Judgment, he may complain to a last minute data about you.
Are you willing to take that risk? However, say you are you know, you're halal and haram and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. You know, if, if you don't want me as a wife, inshallah, you know, there are other means. But if you want me as a wife Alhamdulillah you know, you've handled low protection and help protect you from Hellfire and so on. And I tell you a story about a hot topic.
And then a man was in his house and his wife began to shell, you know, disrespectfully team, which is normally not good from a woman it's, this isn't a job really hates
she, but she screamed, and she's weak. So he went to complain to her motto there lavon What's he going to do? As soon as he can close to his house, he heard the honorable hotdogs, wife, yelling.
And then he tried to walk away by mercato went out and caught him. He said, You've come for something. said no, no, it's okay. So now we're going to ask him again to help you said, Well, this is my state and I went I found that your state is like that. I thought, well, who am I? So I'm not I'm not alone who said to him this. This is how they thought and this is how you mentioned think as well. They said in associati, she is my partner in life. She washes my clothes. She looks after my children. She prepares my meals, she guards my chest and when she guards my secrets behind me and she saves me from hellfire. Any my temptations Don't take me in a wrong place.
Meaning if you know a bad thing about her, think about all the other good things that she has. But jealousy my sister and brothers are loving most jealousies, most of them if not all of them lead to divorce.
If not divorced, you'll have a very ugly life. Turn down the jealousy.
Yes, be jealous, but not that not that much. Not that much.
salamati Polycom ceram the men get the men get
the men get through the rain.
The women gets something similar. And can they change their minds about the man they are with So do they have
multiple choices, please advise.
I'm sure the sister Jani asked it out of pure intention insha Allah, because we consider that when a sister asked this question.
You still in this life, you're not in general yet. And you're really desiring multiple choices.
You know what I mean? So be careful about that. Now, you asked if you can get hold of men in general? In other words, yes, I think you can because they'll claim even taymiyah comments about that. And they said, because Allah says in the Quran, Allah who matters to him for whatever their soul desires, intense form, and Allah did not place conditions. So inshallah you may get your men in gender.
If you don't want your husband
that you are with. I don't know I'm not whining, but what I can say to you is this. in Jannah, Allah satisfies everyone. satisfaction. What do you want more than that? You're completely satisfied. And you wish for things and you wish and you wish to finally there's no more wishes and you're completely satisfied. Allah gives you ideas more and more and more and then he shows you himself. So inshallah you'll be satisfied. Don't worry. Another question. If a person misses on some praise purposely out of laziness, but have a great fear of Allah and death, as they are, as they are, will they be the dwellers of heaven?
And if they have fear of Allah insha Allah they will antigen they will. Any by not praying one prayer of laziness or two or three doesn't make you a dweller of Hellfire forever, you may be punished purposefully. Yes, there is a sin for it. But there is always tober and read, this is another repenter
you will know what I'm talking about in tober. Do we have to follow a meth head?
Brothers once you read the questions before you give them to me?
Sorry about that. Do we have to follow the method or can we use our own intellect to understand the Quran and the Sunnah.
What it's bad. I don't understand the last part. But in general, yes, you can follow him at HEB. Who said you can't.
The only people who study in Medina will know what or any Sharia school, they grab a certain method and they teach it for example, Medina, they study the humbling herb
had been Tamia Mata La La
was a Maliki.
I've been training until I was a Maliki.
However, there's a small difference and you know what I'm about to say.
Nobody, no one, not a single beam, no matter how knowledge they are knowledgeable there is to be followed blindly, without some investigations with whatever you have ability to investigate in.
So if you are an old grandmother, who does not know how to read and write, doesn't understand anything, but goats and sheep as she was raised,
then it is sufficient for her for a chef who is trustworthy and seems to be sincere. And you can see the signs on him.
And he constantly says Quran and Sunnah Hadith for her just to say your chef is disallowed. And he says, Yes, that's it. That's enough for however, someone I give an example of myself, for example, I consider myself a student of knowledge. And I'm able to read Arabic and research in some Hadith and read what scholars have commented on certain Hadees that are fabricated and so on, I have to go to that length.
Where I stopped, I stopped, and then I choose a certain Yanni if I if it's not clear, and it's rare to be not clear, if it's something is very unclear and there is a
a difference of opinion, then you follow what your heart is contempt with to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Or you can go back to the madhhab until you find something which is greater evidence. And if I come to you right now, and I say a hadith and this hadith is sorry, and it's in Bahasa it's very clear as the sun and you have understood it, and then you say to me, but my mother says something is so I'm sorry, not gonna be able to follow that. Then my dear brother or sister, only unfortunately, and when I say it as it is, you have made that method your profit you have made medical Humberto Abu hanifa your profit because they themselves innocent from that. They say don't don't follow us blindly, either. Sahaja Madhavi if the Hadith is here, and then it is our mother, this is what we're
trying to do, which means that they lack some knowledge.
Sometimes not all the Hadith have been brought to them.
And Tom Bahati, he was after Imam Abu hanifa for example, they were had this he discovered that still existed and was and they didn't know of them. So it's not a condition where the sisters and brothers
Salam Alaikum alaikum salam, what do you propose as to her how we Muslims should keep up
the enthusiasm for
for new dean
always recite the code and try to understand it. Every day have a word which means a some type of a vicar which you always say, or have 10 minutes a day or half an hour a day where you read the Quran and try to understand, make times in your day for Allah. If you don't make a certain time in the day for Allah, He will forget a lot in your Piazza enthusiasm will go down even if you pray when you pray, because prayer can come and automatic thing and mechanical thing. And you don't know why you're praying and what you've just done, how many hours you've done anyway. You need to always, always try to also learn new things. Read, ask, be around religious people as much as you can. And
be around religious people as much as you can make do I try to always enter all of that doesn't work. Go back to the basics, the basic of how of what makes them Muslim, what makes a person a Muslim. And that is the creation of a loss of Hannah, who were Darla how many of us make a time in the night or in a day to just spend time to think about Allah's creation, contemplate about how the stars are up there. So Panama, or about how the Earth moves, or watching a video about birds and things like that and sort of learn how to how a lot of creation is remembered because our Hamza who's sitting here has a tape about birds and I really want to watch it. I've been at his house for
two days and he hasn't put it on for me.
Maybe tomorrow inshallah.
And so the creation of a law, think about it, contemplate about it, or make your event firm again, or light or do something to your heart. You'll feel that tingle inside your heart as soon as you do it. Investigate and try and keep moving and looking and striving a man goes up when a man goes down Don't worry, so long as you're still in your compulsory things. Help How can the Muslim show the non believers that Islam is a complete way of life? Any spiritually politically. inshallah we will sit together and we discuss this inshallah everything has its own way but really I tried to say to you try and concentrate on the heat when you talk to them, allows oneness and you show them the good
character from yourself. Depends what the non Muslim is talking about. Another question? Are all the good dreams from Allah subhanaw taala. I saw that I was taken.
Okay, this is a dream that after interpret my good at doing it, brothers and sisters, let's go for it. I saw that I was taken to a higher level where there was a tree so it covered the scene. A beautiful man approached me and said come, I then inquired of someone. What about such and such? He then replied, he may intercede for 70 others? So panela? Could this mean what I presumed at all or not? This was shown to me exactly After further prayer, and I had returned from Hajj, give me your interpretation, Brother, please, so that I too may have hope.
I wish you I was in your place, my dear brother.
This is of course in only a dream from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And maybe this doesn't mean what you are thinking.
Another question, every lecture I go, I go to I hear about men and
who rely in women of heaven that they get. And as you know, Allah has created the women with jealousy. And it is sometimes hard to think about your husband with beautiful women in heaven. Will the woman also have handsome men and also what advice can you give to a woman who is very jealous of her?
I think we had our first our first discussion of the opening up a place for the youth for the youth and myself, gentlemen and only part of the bank of the center.
good luck we always had it in US affiliates.
A lot of talk but as usual, you know the homeless artist that's
out there told me before they've been discussing for many years as well like trying to get something happens and he says call us next week for all my stuff. So we got on the friend Mashallah, we had about I think 2024 brothers in the first meeting. first meeting was in a in a factory unit. And the brothers got us probably euroscience fine
factory, whatever you
Call it and we met up says $24.
Remember, we bought all these chips and drinks and that was the most important thing.
And now here, it's all sat down with discuss what we want to do, how we want to do what we've added he was amazed century or the sort of stuff. And I think we met as a price for about four weeks. And then the owner of the actual factory said you can take the house, it is phenomenal.
You can start doing all your meetings, and use it as a as a center, or until like you want to sell or renovate
handler in the in that place. end up saying they forgot to use a normal handler luckily met the brothers from the snare mobile, and a few other brothers that we started hosting international speakers. And so we just took on from there.
This handler, we've come a long way. in Sydney, I guess still obviously is not known. Like as it should. But that's in terms of because we only got a local shop one way if we had a bigger place like it's hard for us to find lecture halls hard for us to find places to the Muslims. Humble at the moment.
We've got two lessons a week for sisters, we've got three lessons for brothers up and up who could end school upon the weekend for kids from fourth to fifth times. We got the
book's title type videos that I saw come from the center
was when I became Muslim, they really helped me with the books. They gave me all these books in credenza in the combative movie. But it was really helpful. Yeah,
I've got all my information through the center. I still do you know we live in India and I go to the center and get a video or when we get we get lectures you know the brother so we have a stand with literature there.
And the brothers martial law that work in the Santa Ana boop Santa Ana, sweated and gone out for the sake of Allah smart Allah is very very good. Well, life wasn't for these brothers are can only garden as well then that
are gone as well. Are we back in jail?
It was it was only people zoning, my essential association with rdca through my brother in law, once again.
You know, my brother, and I've listened to various things done for me.
You know, they assisted me so much, I had a sense of belonging, we didn't have a sense of belonging out there in the real world, you know, working
even with my family, because I wasn't, I was a stranger than that.
And, you know, rdca was there, the brothers were there.
I look forward just even to the meeting, when we have the meetings on Tuesdays or Wednesdays or whatever. Because at home, you think the Sophie you know, you've, you've done enough for Allah. But when you come and you meet the brothers, they're pushing you haven't done enough. So you go, you go home on a high and you want, you want to help your family, obviously helping your family, you know yourself, your family and your relatives and so on. And you just want to bring them in and to get them to feel what you're feeling. A sense of means a lot to me some hips for me.
Thank all the other specialists and
all the buzz. Everyone just helped me out.
Especially with you know, lectures and lectures have been a great help to me, I've learnt a lot.
My Islamic knowledge has grown humbler from all these lectures and stuff. And just working with the brothers, the Brotherhood in the center is just
Mashallah Great and Powerful just inspires me just to bring up my kids like this and make this sort of center like that as homeless is such a great help.
When I say
this, sometimes like growing up in a country like this, it's very hard and they got my guidance and we've got nothing special specially in Sydney or Melbourne all the prices are going up it's very hard to me if I had a role model earlier and I think I would have got losses like I did cuz I was in prison for two years and
a lion in prison.
You got no one to help you don't look after you or known. You got nothing in there Don't worry on your own. And I sort of realized when inside prison that I always constantly constantly asking Allah subhanaw taala to help me and guide me through and take them through and keep me out of trouble and all this kind of stuff. And it's from it's from neither are realized. And then when I came out
because Allah tala took away my freedom for two years. I came back out, get back again.
You kick back into normal lifestyle again. And you sort of forget
the other hook Gen gorgi for these trees and made these trees easy for me.
And then we started going back on the wrong track again and back on the wrong track. And then the brothers came in reminded, reminded me and vada needed lectures and water need coming out and
our garden in
any Muslim in today's society needs to be attached to a particular center, whether it's not on, you know,
what plans are anyway, is to have a full functional center, like everyone say, nine to nine, like opening hours. And terms of educating the youth, for instance, they come out of school, they dropped out of school, We'll train them instead of the fourth turn. And I have the good job skills and computer skills, other things like this, having a studio and making videos or CDs or these other things, having a gym, that emphasis is not on for brothers, like a full functional thing. So we currently have a very small center. I mean, as I said, it's just a point, a point where we can communicate a point or location where people can communicate touch base with someone Islamic, know
that they can actually saw some Islamic literature.
However, that's not what I believe, is what the community requires the community requires something larger, handily, the brothers have bought, or put a deposit down on a nice, big center in Regent's Park, which we happen to raise some money so we can open this place up because of the amount of good that we're doing in this this liberal center here. We need to expand more and we need to bring and remind people and bring them back to the dean something as as now we're trying to purchase inshallah, a place where where people can gather, where we can, we can educate the masses, with children, and bond
where, where we can have libraries where we can have information technology such as computers, so kids can be in an environment that is safe, that is Islamic, and they can educate themselves, somewhere for them to hang out.
