brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I'd like to begin by saying just as malachite for hosting me.
in this town of yours I asked the last Manoa dialer to bless you and to unite your hearts and to strengthen your Amen. It is a pleasure and honor for me to be here.
And I love the experience. It is only the will of Allah subhanaw taala that is united us tonight. And let us benefit from this time, I will benefit from you and you'll benefit from me.
Or maybe I'll benefit from you more. And the last one dial in.
As I got for you, I asked you to not forget me in your diet as well and my family.
Our topic tonight
escape to a lot.
This is an area in Surah 230. Yet, in the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks,
few verses about himself
about his glory and might about his kingdom and what he controls. He controls everything
that he is the one you should love.
And he is the one you should fear at the same time.
And then he gives stories and examples of tribes and profits of those tribes beforehand.
Right from the time of no Hi ladies center.
And then he iterates and speaks about how his kingdom is so vast,
it is limitless
and that everything is within his dominion.
And that he is the one who creates life and he is the one who created death and to Him we will all return.
Then he says funeral Oh
So escape to Allah.
runaway to Allah,
seek refuge with ALLAH,
I am to you a water from him.
No holla his Salam
is the one who is addressed here.
Or know how a solemn story to his people is the one that is related to us here.
All the prophets and messengers said the same thing to their people when they denied them,
when they ran away from them,
when they sought refuge in other things, such as their tribes, such as their desires, some of them their wealth, others of them their technology, like the people of Ireland
and then others of them
they sorted in their minds and their strength and others of them into their into intelligence, their intellectual abilities. They are smarter, wiser.
So he said to them,
my people, Where are you running away to and from, don't run away from Allah. Run away to Allah. And I am a warning to you from him. I warn you,
I warn you
against the law. I warn you from Allah and he has sent me to tell you this
Now here in this beautiful verse
is almost like, per person who doesn't understand who our last hand dialer is. You would think this is what you call
in English language, an oxymoron? a contradiction?
How can I run away to the one who I'm fearing?
How do I escape and go to the one who I am afraid of?
How can I go to someone who was warning me?
If someone came to you and said, Be careful. There are some people out there.
You have gone against them, and they are out to get you. So run to them so they can protect you. This is something which doesn't make sense.
Allah tells us in the Quran, with no Holly said, I'm not the prophets. Run away to Allah for refuge. I am from him, a warner from him, I am sent from him to warn you against him.
So how does a person
love Allah and fear a lot at the same time? And how do you seek refuge and run away to the one you are fearing? You are being wandered?
The answer is simple. My brothers and sisters, a lot of people ask this question. What does it mean to fear Allah, God is not someone to be feared,
we should love him.
But yet, Allah subhanaw taala speaks in the Quran to us, telling us about how much we should love him, but at the same time, how much we should fear Him. And He speaks about His provision, and his generosity of gentlemen. And he makes us afraid, terrified of his jahannam and his torture and his wrath. How does this make sense?
You know, brothers and sisters in Islam.
When you understand what fearing Allah means and loving Allah Medina means you will only love Allah more.
They both lead to the same result. You want to go to him, since he is the king of everything, and the controller of everything. He is the rightful one to seek refuge with him, run away to him from everything, everything, whether it is a mental problem in you, whether there is a physical problem with you, whether you are being bullied by others, whether you have lost everything you have, whether you are being tortured,
or oppressed by anyone, whether you have lost the loved ones to you,
whether things are not going your way, whether you are ill and deprived
no matter what your problem is, the one who is in control of all of this and has the power to look after you is the last panel with the island. So where do you run away to my brother and sister who else can help you but last time I died in relation to loving and fearing the last panel died.
I can see young people here and in my lectures I like to bring the language down so that even a 10 year old can understand.
So let us talk simple inshallah.
As a parent myself,
I discovered that in the miracle of children, there are great lessons to be learned. our children, our sons and daughters when they are children.
They become almost like teachers to us, but in a very indirect manner.
my daughter did something, she was only three years old.
And through that thing,
I myself learn something.
How do you fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and love him at the same time.
Once she did something which I got angry with, I'll share this story with you.
So I got angry with him.
And I found that her and I told her get away from me.
The result was she got scared. She got frightened. In fact, you could see on her face that she's terrified. And she wanted to run away.
But where is she going to run?
Her mother was there.
So I tried to direct the saying go to your mother mother's opening her arms out, but she won't go to her mother.
I said go away from me. She doesn't want to go anyway.
what she was doing was she was running towards me.
And the person who's frightening her, and she's running towards me. She's crying. She's wailing. Her eyes are full of terror. And she's running towards me now. I don't mean I was
Do anything really bad? But you know, children, they're afraid of something.
Children exaggerates when they love someone a lot.
So she's thinking, why is my father angry with him? What have I done wrong?
I don't care what I've done.
I just feel that I've lost something from my father, my loving father. And that is his love. She's running towards me, until finally I picked her up and put her in my lap.
And she found security, serenity, and peace in her father's arms. And she said,
as a as Muslims as believers, Allah subhanaw taala calls us to ponder.
He says that everything in the heavens and the earth is assigned for us. And he says, What Pm fusi can fly.
And even within your own creation, yourself, your feelings, your makeup, there are signs to know your Lord, do you not use your mind and mentality?
I looked at myself and my daughter here. And I thought, if she's terrified from her father, why did she run to her father,
while she only ran to her father, because she loves her father.
She was afraid and terrified, not from her father, but she is afraid and terrified from losing the love, which exists between her and her. That's just what she's afraid of losing that love.
So when you love a loss of Hannah, who went to Ireland, and you know that he loves you, and He created you, in this beautiful form as a child as a baby, whether you come from Muslim parents or non Muslim parents, Allah created the serenity and peace and gives your parents without you're asking for them, and brings everything that you need. And Allah subhanaw taala cares for you.
And he has written upon himself Rama kasturba Island FC her Rama, Allah has written upon himself, mercy.
This is what he is, and you will not find any of his names in all the 99 names and beyond those we know and those who don't know, you will not find the name of Allah, which is something like the evil, the bad dog.
Here you don't need names like that.
You will find Names of Allah subhanaw taala that are just and beautiful, and more so merciful and generous.
And the names that you hear about him, such as the one who you return to the Punisher. This is only to tell you that those who are criminals,
they will not be able to go and do what they want to do by harming others. So he says I'm the Punisher beware of me, but I'm not evil. I am not a bad dude.
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran.
When you read,
Allah does not want to oppress his service
is loving and caring.
While you read
more morito levena Runa Chateau
Elan Halima Uri,
An old boy, if
wants to forgive you, and bring you closer to him.
You have to violate him. He wants to bring you closer to him and him closer to you. That's the meaning of your two.
who follow their desires and temptations, they want to lead you astray away from this path away from Allah a very far distance. Allah wants to lessen that burden off you
wants to lessen burdens off you. This is why he did things to not make you get into harm.
But man was created in a weak state man follows his desires and her desires. So I'm introducing myself to you Allah says, Come to me. Come to me so you can learn. Come to me so I can give you my mercy, my forgiveness. Come to me and I will come to you. I've already
made the step towards you. Why do you run away from me My servant? Why do you run away from me My servant.
There is a hadith
which I read
the Syrian Cathedral
When a person dies,
and the father and their mother
are gone, meaning they can't go with them to the grave, their brothers and their sisters are not there, their friends and their companions and their spouses are not there with them. And they're in that darkness of the grave alone.
A lot of pulls out and says,
the closest I am to my servant
is when he needs me most. And now my servant needs to be most while he is alone in his grave, and therefore
Allah subhanho wa Taala is more closer in his compassion than what you think. And it is not he who runs away from us is us to run away from him. Allah wants you more than what you want him.
However, we need to learn and understand, be patient. And ask
brothers and sisters in Islam.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared a warning.
This warning leads people to jahannam. And a lot of people misunderstand this warning as being something negative.
In this warning, a believer in Allahu knows Allah sees the warning as a mercy. It is one of the less compassionate mercies towards you.
Parent loves you so much. Did they not warn you from crossing the road? For example, when you were a child?
Did they not warn you from the oven and the stove? And they draw a picture for you saying this will burn you will hurt?
Did they not warn you? If a parent wants you? Why do we still know that our parents love us because they are only warning us so that we don't harm ourselves but a person who doesn't like you, a person who hates you, your enemy will not warn you of your harm. They will try to make the harm look beautiful before your eyes. They will deceive you, and they will drag you until you are harmed. And when you are harmed and deep. They bear innocence from you and say I don't know you It's not my fault. You just listen to me. Gamma third is shavon inclined and in an equal
just like the shape on when he says to the human disbelief when the human listens to him and disbelieves he immediately says on the Day of Judgment, I am innocent.
I fear a lot, a lot of womankind
but the one who wants you
is the one who cares for you. And the law is the greatest of oneness, which means a law is the greatest of cares.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
in Abu hanifa or Thermopylae lay his students have a use of alcohol the says once we came to the masjid in Kufa to pray and I selected a shirt
and after the Imam led the prayer,
he recited a verse, either as a result in Zelda
when the earth is shaken to his extreme shaking,
And when the earth releases its heaviness, meaning the dead or risen and resurrected.
On a day when men will say what is wrong with this earth? Why did it spit us out? Oh my god, what's going to happen to us?
On that day, the earth itself will tell
us what happened. What did everyone do on it? Every individual
be n Rebecca Alhamdulillah Allah has given it the power and inspiration to do so. Yeah, we met he also nourish that and Leonel.
On that day, every single individual will be brought and displayed so that they can see with their very eyes their own work which they put forth.
Then the man recited
Femi melamine rotting
Whoever has done an atom's worth of good, they will see it. And whoever has done an atom's worth of bad, they will see it.
We used to call the says after the pre was completed, I saw him Abu hanifa sitting in his exact spot, and he had his arms lifted up, crying to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He said we left the masjid while Imam Abu hanifa was still there in the morning and we came back to pray fudger to pray. And to our shock we found Imam Abu hanifa still where he was from the time of Asia, he had not moved his spot. Well, luckily he did not even get up to make although because he prayed with a surgeon a prayer on the same model, meaning he didn't even leave his spot, making the heart and crying all the way from a shirt to a budget.
And abusive says I could hear him saying the following words
not an atom's worth of good except that it will be revealed.
Not an atom's worth of bad except that it will be revealed
when way too lean on any 11 year old Oh,
whoa to not man that his name Abu hanifa whoa to not mad if his Lord does not forgive him.
Abu hanifa was escaping to a loss of animal and
this is how the great Imams and Allah understood the escape to Allah subhanho wa Taala among the best ways is the
Toba, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.
My a pause here for a few seconds and quiz you.
would like to volunteer? To answer this question? Can you please tell us and I've already given a hint about it. What do you think the literal meaning, literal meaning of Toba means? Anyone?
What do you think though that means in English, it's repentance. What is the literal meaning of repentance?
To come near to Allah subhanaw taala Yes, that is one way what else there is even a better translation done. So coming near to Allah but rather it is to come back to Allah to return back to Allah very good. So the meaning of dova allowed arrojo to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why we say make Toba or I say to Allah says to bow in Allah returned back to Allah. It is used at a time when a person has turned away from Allah. When a person has earned the sin, and since turn you away from Allah subhana wa tada is the salvation which the Christians pride themselves as if it only exists in Christianity, salvation in Islam, as the promise of love, I do send them
informed us and as a Saudi salami formed us and as musar example and all the prophets have informed us about Toba on the highest meaning that no other religion could inform you in such detail, though that means to return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala, you do not need an intercessor You do not need anyone to do it for you. You do not need to pay any money you all you need to do is be sincere in your heart and return to Allah subhanaw taala by renewing your contract with him and you're promised same to Allah and admitting to him your fault and saying My Lord, I want to return back to you accept me please and I promise you that I will not do this major act again. But if you do it again,
return to Him again and I will accept you.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, escaping to Allah is a Toba is a repentance to a loss.
There was a man by the name of Manik in Medina.
He was a highway robbery
and he used to drink alcohol. He was an alcoholic in his younger days.
medicube no dinner was known for his hardness and he is
far away attitude from the right path from Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala want to guide him one time.
And Malik of new dinar was walking through the markets one day.
He looked in front of him
and he saw a poor man and the rich man. They were both buying loaves of bread.
The poor man had bought the loaf of bread and it was the last loaf. He had bought it already. The rich man came and paid double. And said, Give me the bread.
And the owner gave the rich man the bread for more money.
The poor man was standing there saying, Please, I have no other money with me. And I have daughters. If I don't feed them tonight, they may starve.
And if I can't feed them, and I can't earn my money again, they may starve to death in the long run.
Please, I am living day by day. But the rich man did not care. He said, it's mine and I bought it. I earned it. You look after yourself. As he was about to leave Madigan and you know, got angry. And the first bits of mercy came into his heart. He went to the rich man and said, Give him the loaf of bread. He said, No, it's mine. So American Indian, I put his hand into his pocket and gave quadruple its amount to the owner and says give this man the bread. Every time the rich man gave him more medic never gave more until it was the poor man's bread. And he said to the poor men, if your daughters eat tonight, tell them to make dua for madaket nadina
madaket no dinar knew that he was on the wrong path. And he did not know how to escape this. He was well deep in alcohol being an alcoholic. He was deep in being a highway robber. It's stolen from so many people had harmed so many families rich Of course, like Robin Hood. He did not know how to climb out of it. And he wanted to he wanted to escape to a low but he didn't know how. So he reached this poor man. And with his mercy Allah guided him to say Please tell your daughters if they ate to make up for Malika Medina, he invested my brothers and sisters in Islam in South Africa. In South Africa, he invested let us look at the result. The daughters made for medicube Medina.
Time passed, America of new dinar wanted to get married, but no one would give him their daughter in marriage, because he was a highway robber and an alcoholic.
So what he did was in those days, they used to have slaves from war. So he went and bought a woman slave.
He freed her and married her.
He loved her so much.
Then Allah gave him a daughter by the name of Felton.
stillmatic of new dinar was on his old ways hasn't climbed out of it yet.
When Fatima was about four or five years old, she was playing with him on his lap and his love grew for her immensely and she loved him immensely. He was drinking a bottle of wine.
And Fatima used to come
and hit the bottle of wine out of his arm out of his hand.
And she would say I hate this dad.
Please brothers, please come a little bit forward from the back make room for the people behind me.
Please those in the front.
Consider around here.
melachim odnr grew great love for his daughter, Fatima and she loved him a lot.
He knew that he didn't like the wine and alcohol and he loved her even more but he couldn't stop it. One day, Fatima had a fever and her sickness increased. And it was the will of Allah that Fatima died.
Medic of Medina became so saddened by her loss. He was stricken with grief beyond vision.
He was stricken in grief beyond mission. And brothers and sisters sometimes Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds you of him and brings you back to him by giving you certain trials. If he knows that by taking away something from you,
it will bring you back to him. Then he doesn't.
So always stay close to a last panel with
medica blue DNR, for the next few days kept on drinking and drinking to forget. But he couldn't get over the sadness. One night, he fell asleep because there were many nights which he hadn't slept and his body was tired. He fell into deep sleep. He says I saw as if the world had ended and it was Yokoyama the Day of Judgment
I looked before me, everything was destroyed. I looked, and suddenly to my terror, I see a huge monster like a dragon chasing after me from a distance and wanted to devour me. I got so terrified from it. So I ran away. I came to a cliff. And I wanted to jump away from this dragon. But underneath this clip was fire burning jahannam when
he said I couldn't jump. So I ran the other way. until I reached,
I reached the coasts of an ocean of the sea. And there on the sand. I saw a very old man who barely could walk his white hair, his beard had reached the floor from his oldness. And from his faithfulness, I ran deeply was my last resort. I said to him, please help me. And the old man couldn't even speak to me. So he pointed with his frail finger in the direction. So I followed in that direction. And the monster is after me, said I kept running until I found in my dream, I found something that looked like a hill. And in that hill, there were little caves like pockets. It was so beautiful. And from these little pockets, I saw children and girls daughter's coming out of these
pockets. And I knew in the gym that they were the daughters of the poor men who had made that for me. And they all call that with one word. Yeah. Fatima uncrazy. Avec. Oh, Fatima, save your dead. Suddenly, I saw my daughter Fatima. In my dreams. She came running to me.
As the Hadith the prophet SAW Selim says that if you see a person who has died in your dreams, then is a true dream from them. So message.
So I saw my daughter Fatima. She ran towards me. And she did this with her hand and the monster faded away. She climbed up onto me and near my chest. I asked her. Yeah, Fatima. What is going on here? She said, Oh, Father, can't you see what's happening to you? This dragon is your bad deeds. Look how many bad deeds you have accumulated until you can't even escape them anymore. And if you died in this manner, you're going to end up in hellfire.
As for the old man on the coast, he is an example of the only one good deed you've ever done in your life. And that is the loaf of bread for the poor man. You have no other good deeds, and it's too weak to save your father.
Can't you see? And then suddenly, he says she looked at me and she began to tap me harshly on my chest trying to get my attention, and she recited the following verses
Daksha boo boo
boo Dino kita
cordon o por la la
Croisette Kono boom, or Kathy
has it not come time yet?
To those who believe in Allah, for their hearts to transform already, and to return back to him after it had turned so far away from him.
And not to be like those before who received the scriptures before
and when they received that they forgot their Lord and changed it until their hearts became hard and because they were too far away from Allah guidance, so their hearts became hardened and most of them are corrupt as to themselves
Manik of the dinar says I woke up
and I responded, better.
Yes, it is time. Oh yes, it is time.
Malik Adnan dinar went to the masjid.
And he found the Imam praying. What I read he was a member of Sheffield for lavon. And it was coincidental that the man was reciting the same verse infoprint elemi leadin time for those who believe to return.
He says I kept on crying until the man turned around after the sonet and began to explain the meaning of the verses.
And then I went back home, packed my luggage and headed off to Madina munawwara
to learn the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to renew my life. After that brothers and sisters, Malik of Medina became famous as one of the top ranking immens among our predecessors in medical beauty now.
We have many statements from him and he says if a lot took my daughter away, he brought
To me, the children of all the people of the world to me, I heard from our last panel died, that my daughter was the light for me, and that she is the reason that I will enter Paradise because of her. She helped me escape from the misery from Johanna. And finally, I hope from Allah that I will meet him in January. I have escaped to my Lord.
Sometimes we need guidance in our life, brothers and sisters. Sometimes the largest puts the opportunity right in front of you. He brings a person who is poor to ask you for wealth. He has put the opportunity there. He brings to your attention, someone who is ill, someone who is sick, an opportunity to visit them. He puts in front of you the opportunity to make go out for someone or to go to the masjid or to respect your mother and father and obey them and do something good. He gives you opportunities and sometimes they just drop right in front of you take them my brother and sister. It is a guidance and a sign from Allah subhanho wa Ireland, he is helping you escape from
the misery to his forgiveness and mercy.
There was a man at the time of Musa alayhis salam.
And Musa alayhis salam among the children of Israel. There were 70,000 standing before him.
Suddenly, they were denied rain for several weeks and months. So they came to musala. You said I'm saying yam, sir, please ask Allah to give us rain and clouds.
We are going to die of thirst. And there are women and children among us and old people. So musala is Salim asked Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said to him yamasa The reason why I have deprived them of any clouds or rain is because among them, there is a man. He has defied me for 40 years of his life, because of him, I will not give anyone
tell him to leave the crowd. And I will give them what
he said, yo, how can I reach him? I don't know who he is. Allah said to him, you say, and I will make it richer.
So he said,
and the man looked around,
right and left, front and back. He didn't see that anyone had lived. So a conscious feeling inside of him, told him that this person is him.
You know that the province of Allah sent him said and this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim also find this hadith in 40. Hadith.
It says that if mama had one if mama Huck had been occurring, Daniel Talia is a nurse, since the meaning of a sin is that when you feel inside of you, it keeps picking out your conscience. But you don't want people to know that it's picking out your conscience, but you know that it's wrong. This is what a sin is. You don't need a Mufti to tell you.
Sometimes, an Imam can tell you the opposite. And inside of you, you feel that it's still picking at you. There's something wrong, follow that. This is what a sin is. So this man felt this. And all he did was he had a cloak which he was wearing. He put his head into his cloak, covered himself out of shame and embarrassment. And he calls out to a loss of pan our dialect with a soft voice, but Allah hears even the end, which is crawling on top of a rock in a moonless night on a black rock. He said, yo, oh my lord.
I have turned away from you for 40 years. But
unimed to Nicaragua, for Rahim, I have learned that you are a Lord, who is merciful and forgiving. You pardon the person when it comes to you.
I have come to you in repentance. Please accept me and come need to me as I come to you, my lord. I have repented to you. And I am escaping to you, My Lord, save me, save me. If I leave, the people will know who I am. If I say though, with the pride of the water helped me My Lord, I don't know what to do. I don't know where to go. Suddenly the clouds began together. And the rain began to fall until everybody was quenched. But the man did not leave musalla who said and then went back and asked, oh my lord Allah, Jambi. The man did not leave. Yet you gave us the water. I am confused, my lord.
What is the wisdom behind this? Let me learn Allah Subhana Allah said to him, yeah Musa,
him because of him. I denied everybody in the water
is the same man whom because of him. I am now giving them the water
musala his surname was so impressed
He said, Oh my Lord, I love this man. Because now you love him.
Please tell me who he is.
But Allah subhanaw taala said to him
when he was far away from me,
and was an enemy of mine,
I did not even expose him then
how now, when he is close to me, and the value of mine, how can I now expose him?
I kept his sin a secret.
Who is the best on to escape to my brothers and sisters, the one who will guard you and protect you and hide your sin from being exposed, or to people who will expose you and be jealous of you and hurt you and find the first opportunity to use you. While law here not even your parents can give you what a law can give you.
No one can because when you enter that grave your father and mother will not enter with your sons and your daughters will not enter with you. The one who will be there for you is Allah subhana wa tada and your good deeds are the ones that save
which Allah loves.
kolia iva de la Vina Levine
he say oh my servants who have regretted and blame themselves for the sins which they have done. Do not forget and turn away from the mercy of Allah and despair. He is the most forgiving. He is the merciful forgives all sins, brothers and sisters in Islam.
unison Salah is Selim the Prophet of Allah.
He was ordered to call his people to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala, but they divided
they kept on making partners with a last time dialer and paths. So he said to them, well, Alma Allah, Allah
in Nila caminho una de Ron
Luma Allah he learned in Nila come in hoonah de Roma been do not make partners with a lot any other deity I am to you from him a wanna also insert the data yet they defied him still and they worship idols and they rejected him and they said bring upon whatever your Lord has warned you that you have one Deus with. We are not going to turn you into Salah his Selim gave up on them.
But he gave up on them too early.
He left them
before Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the permission.
And he thought that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not mind that he has left
with a noon is the hub amlodipine for one Allah naka de la la and the noon the man of the whale or the fish, meaning tuna salad salad, when he left his people before his time, without permission, in other words, and he thought that it will not be a there is nothing wrong with what he did that we will not punish him. Or we will not reprimand him, or we will not teach him a lesson out of what he had done. He thought they had done a good thing.
What happened? Allah made the fish swallow him and he went through the greatest ordeal, and men can go through his skin melted off his body because of the intense heat of the stomach of this Olive olive oil.
And in there
What happened? He turned back to Allah, where is he going to escape my brother?
The angels hurt him with his spear. He they said oh my lord, Oh our Lord. And then in three darknesses the darkness of the stomach of the whale, in the darkness of the sea in the darkness of the night. We don't know where he is. He is escaping to you, my lord. So give him refuge. Allah says in the Quran,
then, why then known is a bamboo Hall, the best
domain awani and when the unknown turned away from his people before we gave him permission, and he thought that we will not teach him a lesson reprimand him. So we made the whale
swallow him and he called inside. Oh my lord, Glory be to You. You are far away from any imperfection. I have oppressed myself.
Allah says in another verse, fellow Buddha and Can anyone say
Behind lella v 30 about Nila Yung Yuba soon, if he wasn't one of those who glorified and remembered Allah constantly in there, we would have left him in there until the Day they are resurrected. But because he turned back to Allah, and so refuge with ALLAH escaped to Allah, Allah says in the Quran, we took away the harm from him cannabis now hopefully me wha Hoo emmalin we made the whales
threw him out onto the seashore on the sand while he was very ill and stricken with sickness, or ambit. Now Allah He shouted at me when we made the pumpkin grow around him so that its leaves can encompass him because you see on the outside of the leaves of a pumpkin. Scientifically you'd find this it has a sticky substance which deters it's a insect and bacteria propellant.
And inside he was protected until his skin grew over him. And in the Hadith, it says a law abroad idea to him he would suffer from its milk so that he can survive until Allah saved him. He returned back to his people and guess what? He found them that they had all repented to a loss of animal.
He was the only one before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose people accepted what he called.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted him when he escaped to him or Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do you not want me to tell you of a way that if any of you was in harm, any of you were stricken with any grief? Any of you was in any harm or any desperation that if you were to call upon it, Allah subhanho wa Taala will save you. They said Oh, yes, yada yada. So Allah, he said, the two of them the two
of the man of the whale are another habit of unison no matter the DA of Uranus, the son of the tribe of Mata
Suppan again, in a minute what I mean, oh my lord, there is no god worthy of worship but you Glory be to You, you are far away from any imperfection I have oppressed and wrong myself.
Run away to Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam.
There was this is a hadith as well, and you can find this hadith which I'm about to mention this story in a book by the alumna, the great scholar at an aquarium and Josie Rahim Allah in his book at the word Doha.
He says there once existed one Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he used to be a tradesman.
One day when he was returning back from the land, which he was trading, he went password Valley, where there was nobody to take a shot, a shortcut.
As he stopped tourists, suddenly, a highway robber stopped him.
And he put placed the neck placed the sword on his neck while he was praying. When the man finished his prayer, he looked up and found the sword near his face. The rubber said to him, give me everything you have.
Because I'm going to kill you.
The companion said, Please, take everything I have, but spend my life. I have a family and children.
The rubber said, No. After you give me everything, I will kill you. And there is no escape for you. Where are you going to go? Call as much as you like,
trying to escape if you like,
I'm going to kill you.
The man look this way. In that way he found himself in the middle of nowhere.
He tried and tried, but there was no escape.
So it occurred to him. He said to him, okay,
please, I have one request before you kill me. Then he said ask for anything you want, you're still going to die. There's no escape. He said, allow me to pray to God.
He said pray as many records you want. Pray to your God.
You're gonna die in the end. Call upon him as much as you like.
So the man says I just want to God. He said Go ahead. I'm waiting.
He said to pray the first record and in the second Raka he went into surgery. And you know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which he said accruable Maya Kunal Abu Dhabi.
The closest the person can be to their Lord is when they are in frustration.
In that frustration, he called upon Allah subhanho wa Taala in secret, but the way he called upon his brothers and sisters was from the depth of his heart to a loss of data imagine this is the way you call upon a lover than sisters. And this is why sometimes I'll draw is not accepted.
why sometimes it's not sincere enough sometimes we don't really mean it. We take the hat on from here and with the edge of our lips we say
but we don't even mean it. So we take Moore's law we say herranz we look at herranz for a lot but we don't even mean it
we say you know someone say it's such a loser stuff. But you know what is also a man who's lazy.
I don't even want to say this, but I'm gonna say it
back by gossip.
All these things take take her on a stock put a lot as if this is going to solve everything.
The man made a drop from the bottom of his heart because the end of his life
as a professor, I sent him said solo Salah, pray to Allah call upon Allah, a calling as if you are willing.
And he said along the heart which begins with
which has words like this calling upon line praising him with the Beautiful Names,
saying to him
as Luca beanery, which he can lead Isla Juran.
We reserved the Candela to bomb I asked you, by the Nur of your face which will never vanish or deplete and by your strength and power and kingdom, which will never deplete or vanish. And he kept on asking pulling upon laws, mites and descriptions and his names and attributes until finally he reached the end of the dot where he said
he said to him
Allahumma nudging him in her cleaning Shara hair the list. Oh Allah save me from this rubber. Yeah, movies.
Yeah, movies are listening. Yeah, movies are listening. Oh, the one who saves save me over the one who saved saved me. Oh, the one who saved saved me. He said I did not finish my rocker. Except that after my tasleem I saw a warrior covering his face galloping on his horse so quick and fast with the sword before the rubber could even turn around. He chopped his head off. And the rubber fell before
I said Who are you? May Allah subhanho wa Taala enlighten you.
The man said to him, I am an angel from the fourth heaven.
We heard you
and the sky shook.
So I raised to Allah and sought his permission to be the one to save.
Your heart reached us
what he there's anybody
in any country Mooji Buddha,
felonious, tangy Bulli, you may know me.
And if my servants asked you about me, tell them that I am near and close. I respond to the one who calls upon me when they call me. So let them respond to me and come up to me. And let them believe in me and obey me. So that maybe in the hope that they will receive guidance and success.
My brothers and sisters in Islam,
we sometimes get deceived by the shape on
who tells us why are you praying? is doing you no good. You don't need to pray. Why are you fasting? It does you no good. Why are you donating? You're only losing you're well soon you're going to become poor? And then what are you going to do? Why do you choose to work in color, when you can work in haraam? Because it gives you quadruple the amount in the future you can pour and your family and children are more in need. The shaitan gives you all these ideas, making you afraid of the future poverty and making you afraid to fall into harm in the future. Allah says in the end, a shave barn we are in
The shaitan is always making you afraid of poverty.
And so he commands you and guide you to do the most shameful filthy acts
but a lot of promises you forgiveness from him and a great reward.
So this what happens a person begins to resort into false into false refuge, such as to earn her money from banks such as
The lie to escape something, even though it's insignificant. I mean, you can live your life is a death or you can lie if something is extremely dangerous, but this is the Aurora necessity. But people lie for a couple of dollars. People lie.
And in their lie they like to get even to put other people down. So it's double the sin,
to deceive, to cheat the result towards these avenues, they come to sell something.
And they lie and they cheat and they hide
the defects of this product and make it look like it's something that is perfect, not informing that poor buyer. And even if he is a Muslim, that this product is bad, and he or she will use the name of Allah, saying, well lucky it cost me this much. When it only cost him a third of that price. Or in the opposite way. The person who is buying
he begins to make the product look really bad even though he or she knows the product is good. Just to deceive the seller, even though they are their brothers or sisters in Islam, and on top of that, they resort to something even more dangerous. They use the deen against them for their worldly benefit. So they say to them, for example, brother or so Savalas, lm said love for your brother in law for yourself. So give me a cheaper price.
And the seller says brother,
love for your brother what you love for yourself. So give me what I'm asking.
And then the other one says to him,
my brother and my brother, my brother, and you probably never hear him say my brother, only in this situation.
And suddenly they become religious.
We blackmail each other with the de
Abubakar rhodiola. One Oh, and another Sahabi hymns panel. I can't recall his name, however, as it was a venerable Sahabi once they disputed about a land
they disputed about a land. One of them was the buyer The other one was a seller, Abubakar milania the manner humans suddenly abubaker their loved one accidentally without realizing he said something that was slightly negative to his brother in Islam.
The brother Islam went quiet. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu realized that he had done something wrong.
He forgot about the sale. He forgot about the product. He forgot about the profit. He forgot about the business. He forgot about everything. And something entered his brain. This was the most important thing.
He said to him, brother, please say it back to me. Say what I said to you back to me. Good honey, say back to me take a revenge please.
And the Sahaba would say no. I will not say it back to you.
Which one's better than the other?
So he said, Well, if you don't say it back to me, get me back. Take your revenge at me. I will go and complain to the prophets of Allah and he was the man said complaint.
I refuse to put you down.
Sir salsa lamb called upon the Sahaba. He asked him Is it true what my friend is saying?
The Sahaba said yes, it's true. And I will not say the word next to him. Or salsa, send them said Thank you. Please don't say anything to my friend back. But say, Prophet Allahu Allah.
May Allah forgive you.
The man kept on repeating it dozens of times, until the last one was B it was soaked with tears.
This is how we escaped to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Brothers and sisters, our ego, our pridefulness our desires, our own temptations should never take over, to make us do something wrong. To the point where some of us our desires and how we become our own gods. Did you not hear what it says in the Quran? As far as
Have you ever heard of one
who takes his own desires and temptations as their God? They let us overcome their worship. So it comes before they're sold out. They'll delay this or that for the designs that will delay the highlight for the designs, they will earn haraam because of their desires. They will hurt people for their desires. They will even swear and spit at their own mother and father for their own game. And they will take what belongs to them for themselves. And they will deny those who have a right to their wealth into their property and to their goodness for their own desires and temptations.
They will commit Zina and adultery with even Muslim sisters
to gain the temptation and a few moments of pleasure,
but then they will deny it from their sisters. Then why do you go and commit this act with others? Did you not know that there is a lord who sees you? Did you not know that there is a lord who has prepared a Hellfire with 70,000 rains on every rain, there are 70,000 angels, they are not pulling jahannam they are holding back jahannam because if they let it go, it is a roaring gigantic monster that wants to eat everything in sight.
4,900,000,000 angels pulling back jahannam on the Day of Judgment, afraid that it will consume everything inside.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
escaped their Salah their prayer,
as if there is the business or their desires, or their movie.
Oh, they're playing time more important than this.
They will sit on the beach on a holiday.
And they will forget the celeb joining them all at the end of the day. Saying,
brother, I can't pray here on the sand. There's too many women in bikinis.
What are you doing?
Brother? My business is more important. I'll pray my salad all together when I get home at a short time. I met one brother once and he said to me and hamdulillah How are you? Good. How are you brother? I said so panelo Michio at Juma inshallah this week, he said to me, I didn't go to jamaa said why. He said, Brother, I work. So Couldn't you ask the boss or anybody to give you a bit of time? He goes, yes. But isn't my family more important?
Allah, he said, doesn't Islam serve to provide for my family? I said La La La quwata illa.
And who is the one that provides your family you are Allah. Allah says in the Quran.
Allah Subhana Allah says,
want to know when to know
nothing no nosocomial.
be a never kill your children, meaning if a woman is pregnant, she's not allowed to get an abortion. Do not kill your babies inside your wounds, because you're afraid that you may not be able to provide them in their life. It is Allah who provides them and he is the one who provided us. He's the one who provides you at the end of the day. killing them is a great Greek grievious sin. I said to this brother, remember this verse. You cannot breathe without a loss of the island. If you cut off a lot, then you are telling him I don't need you. Yes, providing a family is important. But your priority to Allah is more important. How can you leave him and be like the kuffaar where they rely
on their own self and rim forget a loss on the island? Is this one of our creators for to earn our living only by working and getting money and then you will die and leave it all behind you. I asked him who will look after your family if you died this tonight.
Who He said Allah. I said then pray to Him and connect yourself with him.
Allah says in the Quran
law in a law hobby
wila takuna no Can
and let every soul be prepared and look forward to what it has prepared for tomorrow. Meaning for the day of judgment
and fear your Lord again?
Allah knows everything that you are doing. And do not be like those who forgot Allah so Allah made them forget who they are.
Made you forget yourself
Who are you anymore?
Where am I heading? Why am I here again?
So begin to work for the dunya and forget what they're here for. Until this strikes.
Those are the ones who are the true corrupters to themselves.
This is the result my brothers and sisters in Islam.
A Salah is your refuge.
The Sahaba is at the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam used to always seek refuge in Salah. In fact, they used to say to learn Ruby Allahu Allah.
Yeah, Bella, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say to him as well. Additionally, havila
ob Nyan make us comfortable and put us at ease with the Sunnah to be meaningful to them. We are we are
paranoid. We are we feel lost Please give us comfort and ease by calling the event today if people today existed at that time, there was not say to be louder the alarm will not be here. ob LAN make us at ease with the Sala they will say I fear Krishna minha yeah VLAN or VLAN put us at ease from it. Meaning COVID as and quickly so we can get everything done with
and I hear this with my ears. Sometimes we get this feeling this feeling is bad. But it will not count as a sin until you act upon it brothers sisters and say it I've heard with my ears some people a lot of that I mean it but you should avoid this statement saying yo Come on hurry up. Let's pray the Select so can go out to the movies. Hurry up. Time is gonna you know it's nearly movie time. 730 it starts Please hurry up. And they'll also pray was at 530
or at 630 according to the masjid here 730 Come on, hurry up.
So they pray it like the picking of a rooster. You ever heard that before? That's how the promises and describes like the picking of a rooster.
What refuge was Serenity? What guidance can a person get from a Sadat like that? A Salah means communication and connection. Salah comes from the root word sila, brothers and sisters if you love someone if you love someone a lot and you haven't seen them like you're far away what do you do you find for any means of communication to keep yourself connected to them. We have a saying in Arabic I don't know if there are many 100 I can see many faces different cultures here Mashallah. But we have a saying in Arabic, live Aidan, lay down line by line.
If you're far away from the eye, you are far away from the heart. So if you're far away from someone, the hearts are also distant. So you find a way to connect yourself. So you begin to call them on the phone, mobile phone, write the car to them, talk on Skype, gone rubbish on Facebook, I mean, not rubbish. Go on all these different ways to communicate with your loved ones.
And so why do we not want to keep our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala the provider of everything? Why do you run away from Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters in Islam Have you tried to keep your son out on time? Have you tried to wake up or budget and pray your lover and all sudden Mother Nature on time and commit yourself to it and see what the result is, while loving. You will have a serenity in your heart and a comfort that no one else can feel a happiness. Whether you are wealthy or poor, sick or healthy, or close old or young man or woman. This is the happiness the happiness is getting close to Allah subhanaw taala because when you get close to a law, you know
your purpose in your life and you know that no matter what happens to you, you will return back to him and you can afford to die you can afford and you always have someone to lean back on.
But if you're going to follow the other way, like the wealthy disbelievers who only rely upon themselves and forget about Allah like that man, I forgot his name. Big entrepreneur who died a few maybe last year he went unconscious in your work and he said Haha, there is no heaven. There is no help define even death and then he died.
Of course it's not having to help this isn't ideal.
But this is the deception
run to a Lost Planet Allah my brothers and sisters and watch. If this world and the Hereafter is not good for you, Islam and the deen of Allah Subhana Allah Allah promise is that he will look after you. Even if you are deprived, in deprivation, be patient, for you are gaining something in the end, watch and see watch
See, and wait and read about the prompts are selling himself and see how much too many calamities he went through. And in the end, he stuck with the last panel data. And Allah gave him victory. They reached China, they reached 80% of the world, and also sought asylum was successful.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
Sometimes we resort to our ego,
and our muscles and our pride, thinking that this is the way we can escape from people stepping on us.
So when I get into a quarrel between me and my brother in Islam or sister, the sister in Islam, or either one,
I begin to puff up.
And I begin to scream and shout. And I use my muscles in my words, to put the other one down. Because I think that by using my prop pridefulness and my ego
I have escaped and I have sought refuge before the person consumes me. Is this what the deen teaches us brothers and sisters, rather the opposite. Allah tells us to seek to escape that ego and that anger and resort to the guidance of a low which he says is his ability he was saying he
repel the bad
And some people they think, rather What are you telling us that I have to put my neck down? Get slept on the one chicken giving my other cheek? No, no. What is good, good doesn't mean that you put your head down. Good means to have your self respect and maintain your composure and not say things that are lost fat either hates or do the same bad as the person who's doing be above that as a soussan Allahu alayhi wa sallam was when the people came to him his enemies at the outside of his house. And they said to him, mocking the word Salaam Aleykum. They said a samurai like Assam, which means poison which means death upon you. Mohammed salani was sending them a shot of a loved one who
became so angry. She has a right to but she's getting so angry that she called back at them abusing them and shouting at them, calling them pigs and monkeys, as in the narration are also some Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to her Aisha
Aisha, with K. Aisha with K. Not with care towards them with care towards your composure who you are. Don't lose your respect. Don't lose your Eman. Don't lose who you are, which Allah gave you you are above them. Don't lower yourself to the leveled in the same thing. fl SME ottima the whole two level. Did you not hear what I said to them? I said what I like and may it be upon you
need to get angry. No need to scream, no need to abuse and shouts people when they abuse you and when they puff up against you brothers and sisters in Islam. They only want you to puff up as well because they after five
hours Allah subhanaw taala says to the Prophet Salah Salem he says
always resort to pardoning number one, what mode below and then command that which is good.
What are in been in JD s for those who are ignorant like this and arrogant. You can advise them. You can't do anything. Just avoid they're hung out and done in Germany. Avoid Them one day or Susa Salim exited his home and he found a man full of rage. He stood up the man everybody's getting around and trying to stop him full of rage was the fight once the kill wants to bash
him saw him and what did he do?
He simply and merely walked away, saying this man, if he really says out to be let him in a shame regime, his anger would go away. Why didn't the professor sell them approach him? Because there was no use. When you were angry and puffed up your brain your blood boils, your frontal lobe becomes inactive. There is no more reasoning. There's no more understanding. So he walked away. The next time the man came back to his senses and understood what he had done wrong.
They're not escaped your rage and your anger and ego my brothers and sisters. What if you hurt someone who loves How do you? How do you know if you hurt someone whom Allah loves and then you become an enemy to Allah.
Do not resort to solving your problems with backbiting and gossiping about the person. This comes from jealousy. This comes from envy. You sit around people and you say who's so and so is good, man. I saw him the other day doing this and that what are you escaping to trying to get your respect by putting
down other people, this is not your escape. This is your dungeon, my brother and sister in Islam, some people even worse towards their parents. If you want to escape to Allah subhanho wa Taala then look at what Allah has provided you have means in your life.
We mentioned sadaqa. Charity is a means of escaping misery and poverty.
We mentioned duality is a means of escaping the harm of people and coming back to Allah. We mentioned Toba to return back to Allah from your sins we have when you have gone low.
We mentioned a Salah prayer which makes you come back to Allah, Allah and get his protection. We mentioned fighting your ego resorting to respect and following the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in his manner as your escape. And now we mentioned very quickly, one of the means of your escape see Allah has created means pathways that you can escape to him, and all the other pathways are dead ends. They are the wrong pathways. The innovations for example, doing things in the dean which doesn't exist, making up your own Dean making up your own fatwas, making up your own opinions about the religion with no evidence and nothing to base it upon. You have earned my
brother and sister and another pathway is your parents, your parents and your children.
Your parents are Sol Sol Sol and a man came to him and said yeah, Rasul Allah, I have committed a major sin and I don't know if I am going to end up in hellfire. I deserve to be killed for our associates and I'm simply asked him
Do you have a mother? He said, Yes. He said, his agenda that you require and the forgiveness of Allah. He said, Yes. He said, serve her feet. And you will find
another man came to him said jasola I have committed sins. He said, Do you have parents? He said yes. He said, go to them and be dutiful towards them. For they are your two doors to gender, or your two doors to help find
escape to Allah through them online. If you foster all your life, prayed all your life, went to Hajj all every single year donated everything you had, help people save lives did everything, except that you had parents who died that was that were displeased with you. You will not enter Paradise.
A man came to us and said Yara Salalah I want to go out with you to Jihad Fie civilian fighting in the course of Allah.
He asked him and this was fighting voluntarily where he didn't really need enforcement's he said to him his agenda that you are seeking. He said yes. He said, Do you have parents? He said, Yes, they are old in age. He said go and serve them till death. And there is your pathway to gender.
A man Cajun said Jada Salalah I want to go Gigi has with you. And he said, Do you have old parents? He said yes. He said How did you leave them? He said I left them crying. He said go back and make them laugh the same way you lift them crying before I can give you the mission.
As for the children,
the parents entrance test agenda is also through their children but not as much as the children towards their parents. But this is when they are children before they reach puberty.
If you raise them on the piety of Allah Spanner on the remembrance of Allah on the goddesses from Southern and put them as their role models, and you guide them in any direction to make them know that only earn my son or daughter your Hillel and stay away from the heroine no matter what you do be their guide in this way, then they will be your doors to gender as well. In the Hadith it says that the children who died before they reach puberty, on the day of judgment, they will grab hold of their parents and they will say oh Lord, we will not intergender without our parents, they will make intercession shefa for their parents, and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sandwiches
in Bukhari and Muslim where he said is a matter of no Adam in Qatar are men who eliminate the lead. When the son of Adam dies, all of the actions become
they stopped except for three things, an ongoing charity which he left behind, and ongoing knowledge which people can still benefit from, and the righteous child that will supplicate for you
that will keep going in your grave. So these are some of the avenues which you can escape to a lot through
my brothers and sisters in Islam, my time is up. I conclude by saying
no matter where
you end up in life,
whether Allah has granted you good health, or bad health,
with Allah Allah has given you
With his blessings, wealth, or whether you are destined to live a life of poverty,
whether you are old or young, sick or healthy,
it doesn't matter.
At the end of the day,
at the end of the day, no one is happy until they find their purpose, and you will never find your purpose until you find the one who originated you into this purpose. And he is your Creator. Allah subhanho wa Taala. A man came once into the school that I teach, he was a non Muslim, and his face was pale, his eyes were red, non Muslim. He came in and he said, Where's the masjid? They directed him. He asked was the Imam. They pointed, I was there and they, he came to me. He said to me, please show me how to call upon your God.
I said, sit with me. I'm thinking it doesn't believe in him. But if a person calls upon Allah sincerely from the heart, without making partners with him,
maybe a lower responding, I said to him, sit down, lift your arms up, repeat after me. Our long, he said, I will. I call upon you with no partners to say that I call upon you with no partners to. And I believe that Jesus Christ is your prophet. He said, I believe Jesus Christ as your Prophet, and Moses is your prophet and Mohammed Salah Salem is your Prophet, and I call upon you with no partners whatsoever, relieve me from the harm and the hardship which I'm in and he said,
then he got up. And he said, I feel a serenity in my heart.
So Panama, and this is a non Muslim man. Imagine then if you are a true believer, and you call upon him and seek refuge in Him, what will he give you?
This man was not poor. He looked like a person who's like an engineer or something, and had a good job. So no matter who you are, happiness is with a Lost Planet or died and misery is away from a Lost Planet.
Mark my words these are not my words, the words of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu.
My brothers and sisters in Islam and Hamden load nine it does in this message, the message it is a safe haven as well.

With question and answer time, it's not my favorite session, I'll just let you know that because it's an on the spot questions and sometimes I fear giving the wrong impression because you need to prepare. Usually I take questions away, come back.
But I know that's too far away of a town here from me, but I come back and prepare the answers in a because you need questions, Michelle, each one of them is a topic on its own.
True scholars of the past is the greatest fear to answer questions to get fatwas. But I'll try my best in Shell line. I'll make them concise. If you don't mind. Hopefully we can get through them all in shall let me know five minutes beforehand, when it's time so my stocking shelves
doing a great job.
As an MC, nice.
First question, we'll answer a question from one of the brothers. It says Santa Monica Monica.
And our group of people, male and female young people. They talk about Islam and Hadith. But in daily life, they do not follow what they say. Please share your knowledge of Deen with us just from a low height with a question. Yes, this is part of our topic. Some people act on the outside as if they are escaping to Allah by acting religious and as if they are defending and representing the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But on the other hand, in secret or among the right crowd, you know, then they either drink alcohol or maybe they don't they miss this alert. You find them having a different identity. Better becomes Billy
What I mean by that is the ability attitude, Muhammad becomes mo and Fatima becomes
Jo or something like that.
But what I mean by that is the attitude.
There's a simple idea in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you handed in a
limb limited una mela
Guevara maakten. And the law here in Tacoma,
are you believe she's talking to the Muslims? Why do you say things? Which yourselves
are not prepared to practice? You don't do?
It is a big,
it is a big issue with a lot of meaning it's a big deal.
It's a big betrayal to Allah, that you say that which you do not do.
The shaitan may come to you and say you Listen, don't talk about the dean, because a lot of things you don't do yourself. I'm not talking about that.
Otherwise, none of us can sit here and give advice. I'm certainly not worthy of everything I said. But what the, what the a is talking about is people who deliberately
go out to make themselves look like they are religious people. These are people with an ego of react, React means showing off.
So their intention and their plan
is only really to show up, show people that I know, look how much I know.
And what's worse than that is on the internet. The shaitan makes it so easy because you hide behind the username.
And you really, people don't know who you are. So that makes it all easier to hide behind a mask.
And say things.
I believe these people are very insecure.
And I say think that they're covering up the bad to make themselves feel good about it. This is a dangerous pathway, I advise them
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us if people knew that their words, a part of their actions, they would say very minimal words. They'll be very careful even if they have to speak a little bit. Now these are not by words, these are by fingers, you type on keys on the keyboard. And the keys you type on the keyboard
are just as bad as the words you speak and I say to you, they are even worse because they are written and I are there forever
until a nuclear bomb hits the world and all of internet and technology is completely gone.
So I say my brothers and sisters
and he has an advice for a lot of what the island in what you say. Eman Malik Rama de la la used to say, the greatest fear that we scholars fear is for people to ask us a question that we need to represent a lot in winter isn't the Dean of a line.
And he said the favorite word to us that all the Imams found was Larry, I do not know. Just very quickly. A man came from Morocco. Four months journey went to Imam Malik with a question which all the Imams in Morocco didn't know the answer to and they said we don't know anyone more knowledgeable than imams chef in the whole of the world.
Imam Malik, I'm sorry. Go and ask him and bring us the question the answer. The man arrived. He asked him the question. Mr. Malik said give me till tomorrow.
You went back tomorrow and made we made Hamadan. Last mandanas sat down. And he said he asked for the answer to your question. I do not know.
The man said Yes, ma'am. I've traveled for months. I'm gonna go back and tell them the man the great man doesn't know. He said Go back to your Imams and tell them Amen. Malik says lately, he doesn't know.
He went back. So that's eight months of journey to say he doesn't know.
And the last month Allah says in the Quran about people who used to say words, out of wrong intentions, Eagle desires to look good to show up to rise to be leaders to be seen whatever it is, and Allah says can less than actual Maya code.
we shall by no doubt write exactly what he or she has said.
And we will extend his torment as a result of their words and bring it forth on the Day of Judgment. I also saw Sanam also said whoever deliberately lies upon my tongue. In other words, a person who meets fatwa or cuts and pastes and doesn't know what they're saying.
Then let them preserve or reserve the place in alpha.
so alpha last man to save us from this. Repent to our last panel dialogue, before it's too late.
I'll attend to a question from the sisters now. It says, Can you please explain the role of the husbands in educating their wives so that they can both draw closer to Allah? This is a beautiful question. And I answer it in very simple words.
The role of the husband is to either teach his wife if he has enough knowledge, and if he can't open the pathway for his wife to learn,
you learn the knowledge has beneficial which Allah loves. And I say to my brothers, in Islam, with all humbleness, and with care to my brother's, from the heart to the heart,
your wives are not just your wife, they are the mothers of your children. And the mother is an educational institution.
She is a school, and children take more from the mother than what they take from the Father Mike, my mark my words, because the father being outside a lighter in his nature, providing from outside the mother is the one that produces, she's the factory which produces,
the father provides and maintains the opportunity for this production.
The system of the family requires both.
So if you had a wife, that cannot learn, cannot gain wisdom cannot, you know, increase in her knowledge, then effectively, what you have done is that you have also produced children who are going to be the same
character, and manners is trained. It's not learned. And if you ruin the character, and manners of this wife, you have ruined the character and manners of your children.
There's something that we complain about women, and I have to admit, we complain that our women talk too much, isn't that correct? They say, statistically, I read a scientific research saying that, on average, a woman speaks to 24,000 words a day. And the man speaks about 14,000 words a day. I find in this wisdom,
Allah created her to be that way. But although he wanted her to use her tongue in the things, which please a lot,
but there is a benefit from them. Children require a lot of explanation. They need to be fed with a spoon.
we run out of words. That's why we choose our words, small words that mean a lot of meaning. And we expect the person to understand. So as a father, if my son doesn't understand from a few sentences, I get frustrated. I sent him to his mother. So the man does all this talking. Because they talk a lot, right? And he's talking a lot with a child, children talk a lot as well. They begin to understand me as a father, I say, Listen to my wife. Let me give him the introduction. You give him the body. And I'll give him the conclusion. So easy.
So this is an he is an educational institution and I just very quickly inshallah is a very important question.
Who do you think is behind the great imams
mean Abu hanifa Renata la la, it was a great other mmm was behind him. But who do you think was behind him and Malik mm, shaping them?
It was their mothers, not their fathers, fathers to a certain extent. their mothers were the ones who produced them.
It was their mothers.
And the mathematics, children who was it that became an island among his children wasn't the boys was his daughter.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, this mother, this wife of yours,
you need to make sure that her knowledge and from the correct source of course, you are the guide or maintainer she's able to learn at least the principles of the deen because in effect, it goes on to your children. And I say to the sister of ours, education and knowledge is not just any knowledge in any education and to the brother. You know, we hear about our children, we want them to always get big marks at school. And if they get really high marks and high enter school into university, we make parties and celebrations that's good. But have you asked what kind of knowledge your son or your daughter has received as big, not maxing for example. If they are experts in Islamic history
then what kind of Islamic history have they learned which they got their big marketing,
orientalist views, they're getting huge marks and we're celebrating a false Islamic history which will turn them against Islam.
All we are worried about is the high marks
the big job they get the position, but we forget what it has done to the man to their morals and their values and their Deen on the inside.
They may be destroying Islam. So I say to my sister as well who's asked this question, education and knowledge. also monitor what kind of education knowledge you are receiving when
Be secular education or religious education. It's good to hamdulillah religious education the minimum concepts principles, the five pillars of Islam, the six pillars of Eman, the rest of it is character and manners. In mathematics mother said to him son go to measure the neighbor which dressed him up and took him to a scholar by the name of Robbie Otto. He was his first teacher, and she said to him, learn from him he's added his manners and character before you learn his knowledge.
So knowledge without wisdom and adapt is nothing. You are a destroyer of communities. And we have people who hack into computers hack into different things are criminals that cannot is very knowledgeable, they have no wisdom and character.
So I say learn the knowledge Allah is pleased with even if it's secular and see how you can use it in the service of your deen and the service of your community is nothing wrong with that doesn't all have to be you don't have to always be items.
But my brother in Islam give this wife an opportunity to say to my dear sister, don't get the western view into your mind saying that your Korea is the most important important thing that is the greatest good. The greatest good is to serve the community and society. Yes, but the greatest good in order to serve that community and the dean is to raise a human being
this child, if you have that skill, and you have that knowledge and education, then I say My dear sister, don't wasted on earning a lot of money from a position or a job. Make your name get into the magazine or the paper become the manager or director of a company or whatever it is by building using education, your skills by building some man's business. Use that to build the most beloved creatures to you and they are your children.
invest in them.
I direct you into that pathway. And if you have extreme Sheldon want to help your husband want to help your family. earn some wealth in Halo in a halal way with the permission of your husband inshallah. Because he's the leader of the home Hindustan shell, and the men help your wives even if it means helping them in the home. And what we consider is women's work. So if you vacuum or your help in playing with the children, all that stuff, this is what the prophet sallallaahu Selim used to do assist each other brothers and sisters. Good question. Another question from one of our brothers. What do you think?
What do you say about
2012 end of the world thing
I say to you, very simple. Allahu alayhi wa sallam said when he was asked by gibreel Allah He said, You will know 100 iclm
by a proton the Quran to the process and from Allah.
He came to me with this hadith in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim long Hadees the koala, Hadith Djibouti, when he entered long Hadith and he asked the prophet SAW Selim, he was in the form of a man. And he asked the Prophet I said in front of the companions, you had a Salalah metacell. When is the world going to end? The exact same question? rasa Salaam replied melmoth Ooh, unhappy Allah minister in
the one whom you are questioning,
does not know any more about when it will be. Then the person who is questioning the question or
the person who goes to the question is usually that is the people around them didn't know it was up for Susana saying, you and I know who you are. You are the angel. You're asking me? And you and I both know that neither of us knows the answer to this question.
So as you have said to him, sadhaks you are truthful.
And when he left? He said to his companions. Do you know who this person is? They said only on his messenger. No, he said in algebra and utter communica Halima Kumara tinicum that was de la Sol and he came to teach you the matters of your religion.
Allah says in the Quran, no one knows when the last hour ways.
And Mohinder be in Surah Taha in Soraka have certain baccara lm Ron in many verses the Quran
in surah was a una casa de la masa FEMA anthem in the Quran, in Arabic Amata in Roma, yaksha.
Allah says to him, they asked you about the hour?
When will it come?
You and Mohammed have not been given news about it. You don't know when
it's knowledge is with Allah. You are only about a wonder about it. So a little socialism gave us signs and these ideas about 2012 coming from different sources. Brothers and sisters, it's hard to believe in. So for salsa, Sam didn't know it. I don't think these directors of Hollywood would know.
It says Yeah, what is the worst thing you can come?
We can commit. The worst sin you can commit is shipped in a loss of Hannah, what?
A question from our sisters.
My husband wants to look after his parents who are living with his brothers
Am I obliged to live with them while he looks after his parents are non Muslim, or non Muslim, meaning his brothers and Hunter,
it is the right of the wife
to have a home where she lives in
meaning away from non Muslims. And this is a right for the wife.
You know, she wears a hijab outside the home, and the last part that allowed her to take a hijab off inside the home. By doing this, without her approval, is actually oppression is alone.
But if the wife agrees and approves out of her piety, of goodness, that of her son, and he's patient with that, and she will earn a tremendous reward from her Lord Subhana Allah dad.
But if she refuses, we have no right.
But I would like every person who wants to get married,
to make these things clear before they get married.
Don't hide things before the marriage make everything clear, but also a settlement to the extent of saying, Look at her, look at her to see who you are marrying. So don't leave things hidden. And this is going to happen. The wife has a right to ask for her right back.
I'm not going to go any further than that. I really I advise the people this question to seek personal advice from the Imams. If you have them here in the masjid, or wherever they are, and shout a lot to call them sit down with them. And really discuss this on one to one basis in sha Allah.
May Allah reward you make things easy for you?
And Allah knows best.
Another question here it says, In the Hadith you mentioned about your parents being the door to gender or Johanna, you said that the one whose parents die upset with them, they will enter Hellfire if the person has a man Will he ever be taken out of the Hadith is a Muslim and you also find similar to embody.
That he said to the man they are two doors to gender are your two doors to hellfire.
If the per if the parents die and they are not pleased with you, is different to saying they are upset with you. If they are upset with something that's a different story a lot a lot of if he wills he'll deal with it on a day of judgment. But when they're not pleased with them, meaning their heart
doesn't want them or is displeased with them as a bigger word hi Robin riddle, meaning to accept the things they don't accept them because of their bad actions towards them. If that case happened,
and that person had a man, yes, in accordance with the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, as far as I know, sorry, Hadith
that Allah subhanaw taala will say to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to intercede, it will give him the opportunity to see to take out every member of his own from Hellfire
who has the heat in the heart. So these are Muslims who died with major sins. For example, they hardly prayed for example, on and off, or they died with major sins which haven't been forgiven. So long as they did not die on shake. They died and they haven't repented from Shrek they will not be allowed to come out of jahannam but if they died, and they don't have shake, even if they entered Hellfire because of their parents, Allah knows best there will be saved in accordance with this hadith.
So last month, Allah knows best.
But the question we have to ask right now is not what will be saved from hellfire.
And it's like people are asked me they say, I know that this is a sin. And I know that there's a punishment. But how big is the punishment?
What are you asking? The you are okay to go to Hellfire for a bit? You're okay to displease your Lord.
So long as the punishment is not too bad. I'll tell you the minimum punishment in hellfire. What is something like cause a fireplace underneath your soles of your feet in your brain boils?
Can you stand up
any other punishers beyond that?
Every Sahabi of the process settings to be afraid these to say our love bring the punishment. If there is a punishment distant to me in the hereafter. Let it come to me in this world for the punishment of the hereafter in other but I cannot hold on Allah says about those who ask Allah to forgive them and save them from hellfire. It's either it is unbelievable.
So please monitor what you're saying. Like the men who asked them when is the last hour
He said metadata don't ask when the last hour is asked what have I prepared for it? Now you're living don't ask I one day forget our alpha is this question please excuse me brother or sister? Maybe you don't mean it but this question to me
it's like saying to me, I am intending to continue upsetting my parents so long as I can get out of hellfire.
That's what the question and this is a dangerous question the shaitan is taking the view
I want to extend more about that inshallah We have another question similar to it we have time I'll go into what
it says here.
Since this question, how important is it for sisters to get Islamic knowledge out? We we answered it's very important. In fact it's a fault upon women and men are also Salim said tabula ilmi meaning the aim of Islam for Aidan Allah, Allah Muslim and non Muslim it is a compulsory point every Muslim men every Muslim woman
can you still hear me? Okay? Now the question it says here said I want to inquire equals something I have trouble with concentrating during solid. This is a big question. What is the best way to improve this May Allah reward you for your efforts?
Look, this needs a whole lecture on it I do advise you to
Allah says in Assam our bustle further could look alike anonymous hula
you're hearing your site and your heart you will be questioned about them.
Your heart changes depending on what you hear in day and what you see in the day, what you occupy your actions in a day and in your time with.
If people occupy their ears with music, for example,
then the love for the Koran will decrease. And Salah is full of Quran Your heart will not live with the Quran because music and the likes of it especially today's pop music. worst of the worst
is darkening your heart.
So a person like that cannot live in the solid with his spirituality number two.
If you indulge in your days and weeks, in gossiping about people talking rubbish talking about
even if they are highlighting things when you talk too much about them, like sports is highlighted. It's okay It's good. But we talk about them day in day out, then your heart is going to be occupied with sports and when you come to pro salad is still thinking about
if you look at haram and forbidden things all the time all the time. And you don't repent to Allah subhanaw taala from them. Then even in your Salah, your heart is affected, and it cannot live with the spirituality of the Salah.
You see, if I if you're thirsty, and I gave you a cup of water, and I made it murky with dirt, how can you drink and enjoy this water?
I keep putting it murky, even if you can't take it from a stream and it's you know, it's contaminated water, how are you going to enjoy this water. So your heart has to you have to try and keep it pure. Obviously your Eman rises and falls we're not all perfect reducing harm. Sometimes we hear how long sometimes we speak out. And sometimes this is normal. You're not expected to be angels, but a person who repents and tries their best to minimize it. So if you do Hold on, I also saw Selim said to her to my other fellow I know we're at the RSA at AlHassan attempt when you do a bad date.
When you do a bad deed
replace it with a good deed. So he said to me also LA is La ilaha illAllah replacing with a good deed he said among the best good deeds of the Buddha Santa can be La la la, la la, Allah fresh in your tongues was by saying that La la la for example. If you listen to something, how to listen to something good, don't forget, you owe something now. It's like if you've got a business and you lost $10,000 you're going to look for a way to regain that profit. Just like that. You lose your Eman in some way. Find a way to regain that way insha Allah Your heart will be cleaning it will be cleansed all the time. But people who continue and then they come and say my salad my salad what salad you
pray five times a day, but your ears your eyes, your tongue your body in the rest of the days indulging in Haro or is indulging in halen, but too much of it like sports or work or money.
And these things will not make you very concentrate you can constrain select. I remember when I was teaching at one of the school where B school I had a sister come up with my reward a young student who said to me I find difficulty concentrating and sudden
I said to her look, we all find that difficulty I mean in solid your mind keeps going this way in that way. someone knows you're concentrating that you know what you're reciting. You know what you are doing.
She said no, no, no, I can't concentrate at all. Nothing ever. I said they're not even parts of America half or a quarter of America maybe sometimes here and there coming and going. She said, I can't. So what do you listen to? What do you see? What do you do in the normal days? She said, If I'm at school, I'm studying all day, I get I read some code and for about 10 minutes a day, listen to a nice lecture, motivational, inspirational lecture for about half an hour. Can't you make time for that? Make it for about 10 minutes and call upon Allah county Did that make something good for about five minutes? She's around do that. I said, Okay. When you're not studying, what do you do?
She goes, I listened to music.
Or I watched movies. said okay, if the Halloween movies, listen to them, if you listen to their shades, and they haven't got musical instruments, go ahead with it. But I said that's the reason. When you come to pray, what do you think about She goes, I can't. Okay, think about the music unity. Because yes, sometimes.
You think about the movie, Pride and Prejudice, how he came in and he swept off your feet, don't you? You wish you can have a husband like that one day, because sometimes it comes like that in my salad. I said, Well, then you need to occupy your eyes and your ears with something else during your day. Let your company be see brothers and sisters, this is how it comes. You don't just pray and beg. Unless you have a calamity. These types of people so that works for them. When someone dies in the family. A hardship befalls them, they lose something, that's when they come to salette and they remember Allah, but we shouldn't be reactive Muslims.
So occupy your life with these things and cover of sin with the good deeds. And insha Allah, your Salah will become more aware in your Salah even if you don't have it all the time.
A joke about a brother in one beckoned not in this country. He says
once they were praying, also pray, and the man pray. They pray behind him. After they finished the man was confused. Did he pray three or four? The people were splitting up a group set for a group set three. Everybody is the bed and I saw a man sitting on the side not saying anything.
They said Well, what about you? How can you sitting over there? You know looking so wise.
the man prayed for
I said how do you know so confident?
It says well tell us how you knew.
It said you see I've got four businesses.
And in my first truck, I calculated my earnings, second, third fourth.
They said my calculations are correct with my business. I got nothing else to think about. We must have prayed for
another question here.
From the brother Now, I know from the system
are a concern when parents are displeased because the child is practicing Islam. Is that still a sin? No. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran
We're in jaha Dhaka, Allah and to shreeka bien la silica de Anima Fela takahama masahito Macedonia meroofer. If your parents strive and make jihad against you, to make partners with me, which you have no knowledge or you do not want to or you when you believe in me, then do not obey them, but continue to live with them on good terms.
Rasul salatu salam said there are 30 masukkan, female Seattle Hadith, there is no obedience to any creation, if it means the disobedience of the Creator. So no, this is not a sin. But you have to continue to live with them on good terms. Don't use this as a means to lash out at them. They still gave birth to you. They still looked after you. You still owe them until they're dead.
It says dear brother, yes. Can you please say the story of Salah please. Salah is that was a good good story, which I could have used today. But we don't have time Brother brother said I've got about 10 minutes. That was about two minutes ago. So I've got about eight minutes left. But if you go to a lecture of mine, I think you can listen to it in English. Those who desire paradise it's available on YouTube. type my name below so those who desire paradise so you can just put those who desire paradise. And I've got the story in there about a very nice story, especially for the young people. It's about saving your eyes from looking at hard on things.
If a Muslim converts to a different religion, what are the consequences? Also, are
they forgiven if they come back? brothers and sisters in Islam? All I can say to you is my knowledge. What I've read what I know.
Allah subhanaw taala accepts the repentance of the repentant no matter what. There was a Sahabi
his name was talofa
who claimed that he was a prophet
Within a bit he was claimed that he was a prophet. And he started calling people to this. This is opencover he left Islam. He left that he was a Muslim he left Islam claimed that he's a prophet. Then afterwards he repented to a loss and Seeley and he was accepted again.
So repenting to Allah after leaving it
last panda Who am I to say that a lot will not accept a lot?
And if a Muslim converts to a different religion, what are the consequences is narrow Johanna Hellfire eternally?
warmer you have done the right on Islam Idina fella, you cabella me.
A law says, Whoever takes on another religion other than this Dean way of life, then it will not be accepted from them. And in the hereafter he will be among the losers. The losers when you say a minimum high ceiling, it means hellfire.
And he will be there or she is there for eternity.
A friend of mine once gave me a really good example. It sounds funny but it's true. They said You know, one person has because Mother Teresa she got a hell hell or heaven. I said this is up to a lot she died a Catholic disbelieving and Allah she has an alibi they said what is that she did all the good deeds. I said okay, listen. It's like saying a person who works for Ford and inexpensive hold them to pain
What does Islam say about a Muslim male wearing earrings and other pieces?
Well without pointing our finger to anybody in the head no one is here like that. If you are pleased to not consider this question directed at you I actually don't like to talk about things which I can see people practicing however, I say from the heart to the heart because we care inshallah and it is our duty
to serve them tells us in a very simple Hadith
I lost my dialer lon along with the shebeen 31 with the shall be had to be resolved. I will let him in and he said he went on a 30 minute
30 minute Raja Mohan Athena Marija. So Allah has cursed.
The men who imitate women and the women who imitate men are men who are feminine, meaning they act feminine. And the women are masculine evening they act like men. What this means is not that they mow the lawn, for example,
or the men, you know, uses the sower to sew his clothing a little bit. And there's nothing wrong with that. The greatest ships today they say, Amen. I'm not talking about these, you know, customs and cultures.
We're talking about the essence of a man in the essence of a woman, a man taking the physical appearance of a woman woman taking on physical appearances of the man, and things that are dedicated to the men or masculine the woman does them and things dedicated to the woman the man doesn't, whether it be appearance, or whether it be of talking or walking, or even some of the duties they do.
are known throughout history, only in the 21st century now cannot take this 21st century as a role model.
You hear in Australian law, I'm a marriage celebrant and there's nothing in the Australian law which prevents a man from marrying his auntie.
What do you want more than that? There's a country now that making protests trying to get it into parliament that a pet can be considered a spouse because they want them to inherit it or they don't want to give the inheritance anymore. They want the adult to take
what homosexuality is just very normal and idea to speak against
it to say that this is unnatural. So in a way it's natural, but a pedophile This is unnatural.
For pedophiles, and the pedophiles mind it's normal.
But we say seeking the head or to be killed but it's very normal to them while a homosexual thinks it's normal to but yet we accept it and we reject the pedophile out of it now both of them are abort. pedophile the onion Islam is has a severe consequences as well.
What I'm trying to say is
earrings are known to be a customer of the women
and piercings customer the women
this is the safest side
jewelry or salsa solemn is the greatest man. And let us take example of the great man assassins to wear a ring. So if you want to practice that that you want to wear jewelry wear a ring
and avoid gold and avoid silk for the men. That makes you become bit more feministic
we have what two minutes?
Is bodybuilding hot on? No it's not hard on.
You want to build your buddy. Impress your wife
