00:02:56 --> 00:03:09

Allah hooter. Isla, as we remember our brothers and sisters in Western philosophy and all around the world, will remember the oppressed it is daunting. And of course as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,

00:03:10 --> 00:03:19

method will not mean a feat our the Mataro homie him committed just ahead, it hashtag commonhold One da la he said it was just said to me, sorry, we'll have

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

the similar tune and the example

00:03:23 --> 00:04:03

of the believers to one another in their compassion and kindness and mercy to one another is like one body. If one part of this body is in pain, the rest of the body begins to stay up at night, as if it is stricken with fever and pain. So we are struggling with fever and pain for our brothers and sisters and our hearts are with them. Even though our bodies cannot be with them. We make dark for them. We are vocal to support them and to raise our voices in their defense and in their support. We work together and we protest and raise our voices. We seek anything that helps them we donate to them we give our charity to them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect them. We ask Allah subhana

00:04:03 --> 00:04:11

wa ala for goodness for them and us. Brothers and sisters, even though we are going through this catastrophe and this sadness,

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

the guidance from Allah does not stop

00:04:15 --> 00:04:38

and our own mother does not halt. And we do not stop learning our deen and our Amen. We don't stop our prayers. We don't stop our fasting we don't stop I was sada COVID And stop our good work. We don't stop cultivating our minds and raising our youth and our children. We don't stop teaching each other and doing work in our communities in that which pleases Allah subhanaw taala and developing

00:04:39 --> 00:04:59

and growing and learning and reading and educating ourselves. We don't stop that. For the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he was in battle battle of better Karlovo how battle have handled any kind of battle, the battle of 100 and which Allah subhanaw taala says we're Bella gotten colluvial hanergy in that state the believer

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

is we're in such a fearful moment. They're in such anxiety and fear. Allah describes this state as if their hearts had reached their necks. You know, when you're so scared, you feel like your heart is pumping so hard that says if right here at your neck, you can't even swallow.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:45

And yet rasool Allah Azza wa sallam was teaching them about the etiquettes of eating and sleeping, the etiquettes of making will do and what breaks the window and how to make up their Salah while they were under siege. So brothers and sisters, don't ever think that if we talk about topics of Deen that we are forgetting our brothers and sisters were Allah Hey, this is where the muscle comes from. This is a victory comes from Allah says in the Quran, while also in in Santa Fe.

00:05:46 --> 00:06:27

He levena Manu, I mean all slaw and he heard you know what else I won't be in a help when you're what else long been solvable? By time that is running out by time that is running out? Surely man is always in loss, you're losing time you're losing your life, you're losing your age, you're losing your provision, you are nearing death. And you are in loss if you are just following this world to accumulate from it and that's it, you're losing because everything you accumulate is going to go in the end you're going to die and leave it all behind even your children, your family, yourself everything you are in loss, living in this life by virtue of it, it is losing out the world is

00:06:27 --> 00:07:07

ending you are ending you and I is ending. If the material world is our gain, you are in loss because nothing lasts except to us. Well, so I said I've said four things in levena Ermanno, except those who truly believe and have strong faith. You learn about your faith and your belief in your deen and you make sure that it's right. clear of any shape or wrongfulness or misguidance you follow the Quran and the Sunnah and you learn about it constantly. While I'm in Osaka head after your belief, you continue to do righteous actions. What are the righteous actions anything that pleases Allah, anything Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam stood and taught us as a role model.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:45

What I've also been helped and you continue as a community, reminding each other and urging each other and encouraging one another and enjoying one another with compassion and mercy and goodness and wanting for your brothers and sisters what you love for yourself. That which is truth meaning you help each other to stand firm on truth. You keep reminding your brothers and sisters come back that's the wrong way brother and sister Wallahi My heart is with you. Let us learn the right path. You correct me I correct you we stand on truth. Because once you're on false, we lose ourselves we lose everything. What else solver solver and they enjoy each other, encourage each other and

00:07:45 --> 00:08:26

motivate each other and are there for each other and pick up each other and save each other? By what? By encouraging reminding each other to remain patient. There are so many things around us that pull us down, draw us back, push us away. We sometimes we go with the wrong friends. Sometimes certain desires tempt us sometimes we get too busy with materialism. Sometimes things make us doubt if we are not a community, we will lose each other as Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said, like a flock of sheep. If one shape goes away from the flock, the wolf will go after the shape that is alone. So what are the four things our faith and belief, our actions of righteousness, we enjoin as a

00:08:26 --> 00:09:00

community to remind each other and keep each other on truth. And we enjoy and we continue to remind each other and help each other on patience and perseverance. Until we die, we keep helping each other. I've gone through a mental problem, you've gone through a financial problem, going through a family problem, going through a physical problem, you're going through any kind of problem. And we reach out to each other in sha Allah, all of us as a community, not on one person, but as a community in sha Allah, to be patient and steadfast and keep going. We make diet for each other. This is what it means. These are the four ingredients and the only four things that matter in this

00:09:00 --> 00:09:05

world. If you go outside of them, then you are in loss. You're losing everything.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:31

My brothers and sisters, even after all of that, this evening, I want to talk to the young people. Why do I want to talk to the young people? I want to talk to the young people, because the young people are the ones who are the next generation. I want to talk to the young people, because it is the young people who are going to make the change in what is to come.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:53

Your generation and the following generation Insha Allah, the world we live in right now is open now is open to a new civilization. A new culture, new morality, new ethics, new guidance. This young generation, not the old generation, this young generation is different.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

Wallahi it's different.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

Muslim or non Muslim. They're out

00:10:00 --> 00:10:03

To stand for anything they believe is the right thing and they don't care.

00:10:04 --> 00:10:17

Even if whatever people or even authorities try to manipulate them with, they read, they learn, they stand together on truth.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:56

You as a believer, you also stand on truth and all that. But we've got one extra thing that your intention is for the sake of Allah, you have a belief you have an amen. Allah says in the Quran, if you fall or go through any pain or hardships, they also go through hardships, meaning whether you're a believer or not, everyone goes through hardships, everybody feels pain in the same way you're both human. Don't think that you because you're a believer that Allah is going to send 1000 Angels to lift you and protect you from everything. No, you are the same as everyone else. We are all in a test in this world. And the time this test ends is that our death, he says you feel pain and they

00:10:56 --> 00:11:19

feel pain. But one thing is different. What they're doing I mean, Allah He may Allah join you as believers in the truth of the Quran and Sunnah and the truth of what Allah Subhana Allah has presented, you have a hope, you have a hope, which they cannot have. And I've heard on social media, so many non Muslims and even atheist have now coming up and saying, We have chosen now to read the Quran.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:58

You'll say I'm an atheist, but I've chosen to read the Quran. Why? Because they are saying, we want to know how and why. Those men, women and children in Gaza, through all the atrocities that they're going through, through everything that will make you lose hope. They are only getting stronger. What is the hope that keeps them going? We want to read this Quran we want to know how are they facing persecution and oppression and pain. Their children are being massacred and chopped to pieces in front of them, yet they strong they stand even stronger in Amen. We want to know what the secret is because they don't. They don't know what the secret is. Most people who become atheists is not

00:11:58 --> 00:12:19

because logically, they were not convinced that's only part of the reason. But it's because they cannot understand the meaning of suffering and why God would create people with suffering on this earth that can't explain it. They can't interpret it. Whereas Did you know that Islam is the only religion which emphasizes emphasizes to embrace suffering, and to love it?

00:12:21 --> 00:12:48

We look at it positively suffering, the mindset is different. Because when you look at suffering in a positive light, you know that Allah is putting you through this hardship for a reason. And that hardship is your test for the hereafter, or there is good that's going to come out of it. Or Allah has a plan, or you're learning from mistakes that you made. And Muslim never looks at suffering in a negative light. If you do, then you are punishing yourself. Don't ever ask the question.

00:12:50 --> 00:13:28

How do I know if Allah is punishing me or not? That's a wrong question. The question is, how should you be facing that suffering, which will determine if it becomes a punishment? Or a blessing for you? It's you it was always been new. It's never been Allah, it's you. Allah gives you them as a blessing in disguise. Didn't you hear when Allah says in the Marlowe's reuse or an enamel or through your straw, as a matter of fact, indeed, with every one hardship, there are many eases and Allah repeats it again with every hardship there are many aces meaning suffering is a blessing in disguise.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:40

A child, a baby does not learn how to walk and stand up. without falling many times. They have to feel the pain.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:45

They don't know that the fire burns until they feel the heat.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:47

You don't know

00:13:48 --> 00:13:51

what forgiveness is forgiveness is

00:13:52 --> 00:13:52


00:13:54 --> 00:14:27

somebody has done something wrong to you, you've done wrong to them. You don't know what mercy is, until blessings are taken away and comfort. We don't know. You don't become a doctor. You don't become a leader. You don't become a helper. You don't become a person of welfare and, and a person who does goodness without seeing the opposite the suffering. You don't follow the truth without knowing the false you don't know the good without knowing the evil. Brothers and sisters.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:59

Allah Subhana Allah has created us in this world for a test and that test is short. And until you can accept that you will not find the true happiness that you're looking for. Brothers and sisters let us move now to the young people. You young people, you are full of resilience, full of energy full of creativity. You don't fear much we fear more as you get older, your fear more. You've got your hold on more you hold on to your children more you hold on to your money more you hold on to life more because you know you're getting closer to the grave. That's just

00:15:00 --> 00:15:36

Very natural, except the Motoki in those who have been raised in their youth in Taqwa and piety, young people don't think as much like that, because they think I've still got my life ahead of me. I've still got my strength, I still got time. Maybe they don't have much money, but they have time. They have strength, they have energy, they have their life ahead of them. Insha Allah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala calls this stage of life Pull what Allah says, We created you. First out of weakness, meaning as babies, then after weakness, we gave you strength, for a period of time. And then after that period of time of strength, we resorted your back to weakness, meaning old age, so a

00:15:36 --> 00:15:43

lot of hold the youth, the strength, what is youth, youth is from puberty. As soon as you hit puberty,

00:15:45 --> 00:15:49

till about 35. And some scholars said 40 years old.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:54

There is even a minority view up to 50 because Prophets was sent,

00:15:55 --> 00:16:30

not past 40 years old, they became prophets and most prophets of Islam. Most messengers of Islam, were always most of them were under 40 years old. Some of them were sent as prophets at puberty, teenagers, some at 30, summit 20 that we're all young. And we know, for example, Asa alayhis, Salam Jesus, most likely it's accepted that he was about 30 to 33 years old. Ibrahim Ali has Salam. When he first came out as a prophet, he was a teenager he was a feta. Feta in Arabic means a teenager.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:34

We have Fattah, we have Hola.

00:16:35 --> 00:17:15

We have Shab. We have all these names. Fattah is somebody who has just blossomed. So if you look at a boy who was a fighter, he is a teenager, about 1314 1516 It's when they've got light hair on their face. That's called a fetter. Ibrahim Hassan was a Fattah when he was a prophet in Noho fatten Samia Anna be fat feta nucar, Lulu who, Ibrahim that's when the statues and idols were broken. They said we heard of a Fattah a young teenager His name is Ibrahim Ibrahim Ali Salam. Who do you think what around the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Most of the prasar sellers companions were younger than him.

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

Even I think only one compared to maybe Abacha Golan was slightly older or maybe younger, I'm not sure, but the majority of them are younger than him.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:42

Most of the companions were between 14 or even 11 years old, till about 30. Amara Malhotra Donna was 27 years old when he converted when he embraced Islam. Abu Bakr the Alana was 36 when he memorized the entire Quran

00:17:43 --> 00:17:59

and a sub nomadic was 11 and 10 years old. Abdullah if not best 1112 13 years old highlighted the hola Juan was 10 years old. They they've no therapy at 16 years old and the prophets are 18 years old and the Prophet sallallaahu Selim made it the commander of the army

00:18:02 --> 00:18:16

Masada no omae are the Allahu Anhu was barely 20 years old when he sent him as the ambassador of Islam to Medina. And when he turned Medina into Muslim spirit, nila, they were all young people, brothers sisters,

00:18:17 --> 00:18:18


00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

fifth year, don't

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

be around beat him was it in

00:18:26 --> 00:18:33

or about 1.0 being him is far more folk on on on going out on boards.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:45

Down, learn neither one adorning and pointing

00:18:47 --> 00:19:01

isn't shelf on for Allah mentions young people dedicated to them in a whole chapter called Surah Al Kahf. Dedicated to young people. Allah says they were indeed.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:13

What were they he says? He says they were indeed a group of young men who had faith in their Lord and we increase them in guidance

00:19:14 --> 00:19:58

and strengthen their hearts when they stood up and proclaimed, our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. We shall call upon no other God beside him. For if we did so, we shall be uttering a blessed for me. We are going to talk now, three examples of young people and how Allah subhanho wa Taala guides you. What should you become? How should you live your life? Yes, young people are full of integrity and cultivation, energy, innovative and creative. And Allah Subhana Allah will change this world on your hands in sha Allah, Allah Allah, but you need to have the proper character and the proper guidance and where else can you get the proper character and guidance them from the

00:19:58 --> 00:20:00

Quran? Allah

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

pantalla dedicated tonight on will use three examples dedicated three particular sorters just to the young people, they are Sora target have followed by Surah Look man, followed by Surratt use of and there is also one in sort of Maryam about Ibrahim Ali Salam but I will talk about the first three inshallah. Let's look at Surah Toluca Hough number one surah Kahf talks about your identity, your foundation, your integrity, and what you stand for.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:38

Allah says in the Quran, and has saved

00:20:39 --> 00:21:23

us herbal caffeine, water Rotimi can who mean the agenda, Allah begins chapter 18 Verse nine with the following question to the people of Quraysh and to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in answer to the kuffar the disbelievers when they said, how can you tell us that there is a God who created all of this? So Allah replied by saying, Well, you know, the story that you all talk about, which has now become a legend to you, he's talking to the Jews, the Christians, and the people of Makkah in his time, because in the Scriptures, the story of these young men called the men or the young men of the cave, is mentioned in the ancient scriptures. Allah says, Do you think that the people of the cave,

00:21:23 --> 00:21:27

and the inscription were one of our wonderous signs?

00:21:28 --> 00:21:38

The story of the young men is that there was a tyrant king in their time, an Emperor, who forced the people to worship idols.

00:21:39 --> 00:22:02

He changed the religion and the way of Musa alayhis, Salam Moses, and made the people go into a false, misguided belief of a twisted type of Christianity. And there were some Christians who still stuck to the original beliefs of Jesus peace be upon him, a Sally set up, among them with these young group of friends.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:18

This tyrant ruler heard that these young men had chosen to stick to a different belief than what the emperor had allowed the people to believe in. And based on that belief, he ran his country.

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

These young men stood up and said, No,

00:22:23 --> 00:22:35

the God the Creator, who created this emperor in the entire world deserves to be believed in, we will make a stance. So they protested meaning they stood up, and they began to teach the people in open

00:22:36 --> 00:22:58

people. This is not the teachings of the Prophets and Messengers. These are the teachings is only one God worthy of worship. The Emperor heard about them, and he summoned them. And he asked them, What do you believe in? Even though the Emperor knew what they were believing in? Why did he ask them the question? Because they were young.

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

Teenagers, they were probably 1617 years old. And so because they were so young, the Emperor wanted to give them a chance, said, I'll give you three days to think about if you're going to stick to that belief or change it because this is similar to treason. Although it wasn't treason, it's just the belief. So they went for three days. In those three days, they took the opportunity to run away from the land. They looked at each other, Allah says, is our fifth here to Ilana, Falco and Rob Bana.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:34


00:23:37 --> 00:23:41

We're here. Hey, Lana. I'm in Medina, Russia.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:57

Allah says, when those youths sought refuge in the cave and said, How will Lord, grant us mercy from yourself and provide for us rectitude? In our affairs? The first thing we learned about these young people is what did they do?

00:23:58 --> 00:24:11

They ran away with their religion. Why? Number one, they were not powerful enough to resist the Emperor and his army, there were just a few of them less than 10 in number,

00:24:12 --> 00:24:18

less than 10 in number, maybe five, maybe seven, maybe

00:24:19 --> 00:24:40

eight, something like that. Allah does not give us the number in particular because Allah does not want to busy us with little tiny, superficial knowledge which doesn't benefit us. The first thing we learn from here is young people do not enter into debates and argumentations that waste your time on superficial things that do not benefit you.

00:24:41 --> 00:25:00

If you remember in a class in the past, I gave a hadith which some people misunderstood. The hadith which is acceptable by scholars says if you want to perfect your religion and your Eman, stay away from that which does not concern or benefit you. Some people thought that we're not allowed to talk about

00:25:00 --> 00:25:23

out even oppression or any, or guiding people or advising people or, you know commanding good and prohibiting evil No, no, no. It means things that will not benefit you in your, in your religion in your hereafter in this world. Some people said, oh, so we don't make dua and we don't talk about our brother and sisters and brothers, I would say no, that does concern you. This is oppression. Everybody has to stand up against oppression because it involves mankind.

00:25:24 --> 00:25:34

It means do not busy yourselves with debates and argumentations and people's personal lives that benefit you nothing.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:39

Things that are truly personal supposed to be personal.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

Such as

00:25:44 --> 00:26:07

trying on people saying continuously why, you know, why haven't you had a baby it? How do you? What do you do at home? How come you don't do this? How can you do that? Just personal things that have nothing to do with religion, nothing good with advice, no benefit whatsoever. gossip and backbiting. For example, trying to no personal private things that are none of your business about a personal life

00:26:08 --> 00:26:18

debating and talking about things that benefit you nothing except waste your time I see it on the internet all the time. People splitting his straw man arguments why?

00:26:20 --> 00:26:34

Allah says doesn't matter about that number. Some people say but how many were they exactly? Imagine people debating for a week. There were no there were eight there were nine. No, the dog was the 10th No, I reckon the scriptures are right. What for? Allah says, Who cares.

00:26:35 --> 00:27:14

Cora Buka Allah will be the team. Your Lord knows how many they were it doesn't really matter. What matters is the purpose and what we learned from them. They were a young people full of energy, full of strength. They didn't fear talking about the truth. They ran away with their religion because they were persecuted because of their religion. And this means that a person should migrate and leave a land in which their religion is persecuted. You are not allowed to practice your deen there you are imprisoned. If you pray you are imprisoned if you if you're seen to eat pork, for example, you are imprisoned for standing up to show that you're, you know, a person of such and such a belief

00:27:14 --> 00:27:23

you're persecuted, or a place which affects your religion, directly and directly and realistically

00:27:24 --> 00:27:39

turns you away from your religion. These boys, they ran away with their religion because they knew if they were going to stay there, they're going to be persecuted to their religion and probably even be caused to forcefully move away from religion because of torture. So they're left with their religion.

00:27:40 --> 00:28:01

And they said to each other, let's seek refuge they saw a cave now on their way a dog saw them in a farm. And the dog followed them they tried to get rid of it with a dog insisted on staying with them. Allahu Allah, why God knows best why the dog is in the picture. But perhaps some scholars said animals are also an example of

00:28:03 --> 00:28:18

worship of Allah. We look at animals and when we see how Allah had created them, the way they are naturally teaches us Allah also brought us a religion, Islam, the natural religion, that just as the animals and the creatures worship Allah,

00:28:20 --> 00:29:07

Allah has honored us and we have a choice. So we should choose also to worship Allah, just like everything in creation worships Allah, the dog followed them, and they found a cave and hid inside it. They said, Let's go into this cave and hide. Allah says when they sat inside the cave and they went to sleep, The dog went and stood and sat with his legs out as a guard, cutting the story short, Allah Subhanallah made them fall asleep. They fell asleep and they went for hundreds of years. Asleep. We don't know how many years again, Allah says some will say it was 309 years some will say 300 and so many years, whatever. Allah says called Rob Buka Allah mu B. mela call Allahu Allah mobi

00:29:07 --> 00:29:47

Mela. Basil, say, Allah knows how long they were really in there, again, don't sit there debating over little superficial things. Then they woke up after hundreds of years, and they hadn't known that they had slept for that long. When they woke up they thought it was a night or two nights They quarreled among each other. They said Carlo Camela wisdom, how long do you think you were asleep? The coin whatever snowman Obadiah we were a day or part of a day. Now Allah uses a word libitum and this word is usually used for death, because sleep is minor death. And truly they went over to a state that was similar to death, but they were just asleep and Allah would make the sunrise coming

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

from the right and from the left. When the sun rose and when the sun set in order to give them vitamin D and sunlight and everything. One can label that Alia meaning whether the CheMin and Allah says We made their bodies toss and turn right and left

00:30:00 --> 00:30:36

To so that their bodies don't decay, and so on. So Allah Samantha looked after them and preserved them and protected them. Now, listen to this. When they woke up, they said, Allah knows, one said, or maybe a day, the other one said, two days down says it feels like a week, another one said a few hours. Then in the end, they said, listen, our Lord knows how long we were asleep for now, take this coin and go out and buy us some food. But don't let anyone see you. They thought the emperor was still there. So they when they went out, and also I want to point out something this young youth were wise and intelligent. They didn't sit there debating and having a fight night and day how long

00:30:36 --> 00:30:46

they slept for. In the end, they said hulless Allah knows how many. Let's now focus on our goal. Don't lose sight of the goal. Don't lose sight of the goal.

00:30:47 --> 00:31:16

That's why when I sit when I hear about brothers, sisters going up for protest, I say to you, don't lose sight of your goal. Your rallying your voicing, I support it, insha Allah, in this case, I support it, we'll talk about it soon Inshallah, that focus on the goal, do things that please Allah subhanahu, wa taala, don't get provoked, don't let them use you. And so on. These boys, they went out quietly when they took the coin. The story is long. Anyway, the people of the community found out that they were the ancient people who had vanished.

00:31:18 --> 00:31:57

And they brought the police guard and all that stuff. And they came and they found the cave in which there was inscriptions and things so people had known about them. And the generations had changed. There were approximately, you know, as I said, a few 100 years, maybe 200 years, 300 years, between when the last emperor was there, and this generation, and I want to highlight something that people of the land had changed their ways, they had left polythene ism. And they had changed from the old emperor who was unjust and oppressed the people and the persecution and religion had gone, the new generation had changed everything that was before.

00:31:59 --> 00:32:13

Sometimes brothers and sisters, listen carefully. Sometimes, Allah subhanahu wa ala allows certain events, and at times, they could be extremely catastrophic will,

00:32:14 --> 00:32:17

to the point that it makes such

00:32:19 --> 00:32:23

an explosive awareness throughout the globe, all people

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

that it becomes unforgettable,

00:32:28 --> 00:32:30

carved into the memories of every person,

00:32:32 --> 00:32:37

and it will not be forgotten. And then Allah brings a new generation soon,

00:32:38 --> 00:32:45

when they grow up and gives them power and strength to change the oppression of the generation before them.

00:32:47 --> 00:33:29

As Allah says, What will kill a Yamanaka widow have been a nurse these days never stay the same. We replace people with others. In other verses, Allah replaces power with other authorities when they become unjust. So don't despair brothers and sisters, what is happening to her and sisters in Reza. And there are and I have to mention there are Christian Palestinians there because this is a thing of oppression, whose lands have been stolen, whose lands have been taken. And these people are oppressed in the eyes of Allah. And now in our eyes, the awareness that has been done in such a hurtful, painful way can now never be forgotten. Insha Allah, and I believe that the next

00:33:29 --> 00:33:49

generations will change this state in sha Allah who died in sha Allah, brothers and sisters, these young people went back into the cave. They slept that night and never woke up again. Allah subhanaw taala caused them to die. But the older people there had returned back to monotheism because of their story.

00:33:51 --> 00:34:30

And they built a place of worship above them. Now there was another group who said let's build a wall around them. But Allah says paella, Latina Rolla, Bolla Emery Him, those who are more in power that overstep them, they said, Let's build a worshiping place over them. Meaning that the people wanted to build a wall were right, but they were too weak to have authority. The authority said, Put a worship in place over them which is wrong, because we're not meant to build the masjid and worshipping places over people and we call saints and prophets. Also Salam said, may Allah Allah Azza wa sallam, he said, Don't do what the Jews and Christians did before. Curse them those who did

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

this, Jah Lu, Cobra and BA hem massage they turned their profits graves into mosques and places of worship, like churches and synagogues in the past. So we don't do that. But anyway, I wanted to make a point that those who are in authority make the decision and those who are in the could be weak people who are on truth they try their best as it's presented here and sorted curve. Allah says call Lubenow Allah him banana, a little group

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

of people who didn't have authority among them said let's build a wall around them. Call Allah Latina Allah Allah Allah and Rahim, Lana Takeda gnarly him Machida, those who had authority and power above them. They said, No, no, we are going to build a worship in place over them. It means that even if you are a small amount and you don't have power, you do what you can. But also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:35:25 --> 00:36:09

Mara, I mean, c'mon, Karan fell Euro year who Beardy. Whoever if you sees an evil or wrong, then change it physically, physically, for Ilam, you're stuck there. But if you are not able to change it physically, meaning number one, truly, you are not capable, you don't have the power to do so. Or if you change it physically, it will cause a greater evil. Sometimes you might see an evil and say I can't change that physically. But if you do it, you got to think wise, will it cause another problem, a bigger problem, then you can't change it physically. For a limb, you're stuck there for barely 70. You can't change it physical ends or it's not wise to do so. Use your tongue with your

00:36:09 --> 00:36:36

voice. For LM your stutter, same conditions for be called BT. Finally, in your heart, know your belief, know what you stand for. And always remember that with early god awful, amen. That's the last resort. You can't go any more than that. Because nobody can change your heart. No one can change your belief. Isn't that right? You own your belief and Hamdulillah. So brothers and sisters, one thing also I want to say about these young men,

00:36:37 --> 00:36:40

did you realize something very important. And that is

00:36:42 --> 00:36:43

how they stuck together.

00:36:45 --> 00:37:22

Who is your friendship circle? Young people, if you want to be leaders, and Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with you. And you change things from worse from bad to good, and become people of benefit. And people who are loved by Allah subhanho wa taala. And you cultivate what you have, and you're productive, and you make changes and you save yourself and your people of Ghana. Then be careful the company that you associate yourselves with some people, you have no choice like family, friends at school. Choosing your company means those who you become like and you always want to be with

00:37:24 --> 00:37:48

Alma Omar, Amanda hub, Ross also set them set on a day of judgment personal together with those whom they love. Those who they imitate, sometimes your company may not be with you. Sometimes they're people that you follow on social media, influencers and all that stuff and celebrities who lead you astray or lead you in a good way. That's your company now. And if you really want to know a formula, one person is the is the

00:37:49 --> 00:38:26

one person is the result of four or five people around you in your life. Those four or five people that you spend most of your time, whether distance from a distance or close, is you are the product of these four or five people. Nobody really has more than four or five people that influences and yet between three to five, these are people that influence you the most so monitor who your company is and less than a little bit from here, increase a little bit from there. One of the best places to come to the masjid with a community of the Muslims is and sift through who you get closer to and who you don't insure a lot with dial these people. These young men they stuck together because they

00:38:26 --> 00:38:32

reminded each other of righteousness and perseverance and Allah Spano die that says in the Quran

00:38:37 --> 00:38:39

we all met easy.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:42

About only about the night

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

we met

00:38:50 --> 00:39:03

about boom li about the NADA one in me dunking. Yeah, Eva Dean coloful gnarly, cool Malaya. Allah

00:39:05 --> 00:39:20

on levena movie yet Dena waka no Muslim mean. Allah says on the day of judgment the best friends will become the biggest enemies

00:39:22 --> 00:39:28

except the Pious One and righteous ones who are God fearing these to remind each other of righteousness and goodness.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:31

Hey, they used to fear Allah.

00:39:32 --> 00:39:42

Oh my dear servants, now Allah addresses you those who are close to each other on piety. Oh, my dear servants, duckling, the pious ones, there will be no fear upon you.

00:39:44 --> 00:39:47

And there will be no sadness that is awaiting you.

00:39:49 --> 00:39:52

The ones who believed in all my verses.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:56

And they were built and they were submitters as Muslims.

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

Those are the triumphant ones.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:09

We move on now to suit look, man. So that look man talks to young people.

00:40:10 --> 00:40:14

This time it's about morals, ethics, and character.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:52

We all believe in Allah. We all believe in the Quran. Some of us pray five times a day. Any person who is just Muslim by name goes to hush goes to ombre. That's all the easy part. The real part is here. How do you live your life? How do you interact with others? How are you as a person? How do you work? How is your contracts? How do you speak? How do you walk? Where does your money come from? How do you spend it? How are you with your family? How are you with your neighbors? How are you with your colleagues? How were you as a person?

00:40:54 --> 00:41:16

How will you with your children? How are you with your parents? This is the tough advice you believe you pray has to have an effect. What is solid for in the salata tinhorn in fascia it will Moncure salah and prayer is supposed to prevent from immoral and indecent acts, and sinful acts.

00:41:17 --> 00:41:49

If it doesn't go to review, whether you're praying with consciousness, whether you are present in your prayer, and I'm going to give you a little tiny hint to improve your prayer in insha. Allah to hints here is one very quick hack. Number one, before you pray brothers and sisters, give yourself 10 seconds to just stand there and reflect don't talk to anyone put your phone away, Wait, calm down, and then say Allahu Akbar. The second hint, instead of spending a quick raka when you go into bowing

00:41:51 --> 00:42:30

Just five more seconds more every movement you make make five more seconds, just five more seconds. In the end the difference between an amazing prayer and a quickened prayer that had no consciousness or you weren't present in will equal to about a minute and a half to two minutes, that's all and that's in the bag. I'll give you a third hint. If you're not feeling it in your normal solid have just randomly randomly make Waldo and offer Toyota cars in the middle of the day voluntarily. I promise you you're going to feel a different presence to your solid inshallah these are just three simple hints. Let's look now as sort of look man, he was a righteous man. He was not a prophet. His

00:42:30 --> 00:42:55

name is Look man, Allah Subhana Allah mentioned is just his name in the Quran, and he now is advising his son, his son has just reached puberty. And this advice everything I've said brothers and sisters applies to men and women. Although it happened to be that this story is about the men but they are both men and women. So Allah Allah says in the Quran, or is God I know Conan will live in he went who I

00:42:56 --> 00:43:41

went to shinny Cuban in a shin can avoid him more. Now we Allah says in chapter 31, verse 13, and call to mind when look man said to his son, while exhorting him, My son did not associate others with Allah in His divinity, surely, associating others with Allah and His divinity is a mighty wrong. So it all starts with your identity and your belief if you don't have your Tawheed and your monotheism, correct. Forget about everything else. All your actions are destroyed, who you're praying to. If you're if you've got political Islam and you who we are praying to, all of it is gone. Secondly, Allah says, Now listen to this might hurt some of the youngsters, but it's a key to

00:43:41 --> 00:43:43

your development, while slang

00:43:44 --> 00:43:47

send me anywhere any day. Hi, I'm Alan

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

Nyla, new

00:43:53 --> 00:44:43

fee. I mean, what feels law in your home fee? I mean, you Ernie scorned anyone you early they lie. And mostly, we enjoined upon man to be dutiful to his parents. His mother bought him in weakness upon weakness, and he's winning Gluster two years. We therefore enjoined upon him, Give thanks to me, and give thanks to your parents, to me, is your ultimate return to me is your ultimate return? Who's your ultimate return? Meaning you and your parents, if you complain, your parents mistreat you and all that stuff, and you do good to them. Allah says in the Quran, don't worry about that. You just do your part as a son or a daughter. That is part of your development, and they will come back

00:44:43 --> 00:45:00

to either reward you or bite you. When you grow older and you have your own family. Trust me, you do your part to your parents, if they mistreat you and don't do their duty. Well, I've told you in the end here, all of you will come back to me and I in other words, Allah saying I will judge between you don't worry if you have

00:45:00 --> 00:45:22

right against your parents, I'll take it back. If your parents had a right against you, I will sort it out. You do your part. You do your part not because you think they deserve your parents deserve it or not. You do your part could have just reminded you, You already owe them from the moment you were born. I just told you Allah says, Your father and mother they sacrificed and waited and gave you security until you grew up.

00:45:23 --> 00:45:27

Your mother breastfed you for two whole years and the pain that she went through.

00:45:28 --> 00:45:34

If you don't know ask your mothers, how weaning happens. If you don't know about pregnancy, ask your mothers if you dare.

00:45:36 --> 00:45:38

You don't know what's gonna go through. And here you are.

00:45:39 --> 00:45:47

So brothers and sisters Allah says You already owe them whether they are Muslim or not Allah then says another advice or in Jahad

00:45:49 --> 00:45:59

to Shrek beam na Sena, can I be hey, I need more fun. Don't Don't was all here boom. Feed duniya no room for

00:46:00 --> 00:46:09

what Debbie Sabina and Elaine some ala mode on Jiang Fett, Luna Bianca,

00:46:10 --> 00:46:11


00:46:12 --> 00:46:59

dome top man Darkman. But if they your parents press you to associate others with me in my divinity, to associate those regarding whom you have no knowledge that they are my associates, meaning if they cause you to do kufr disbelief. Do not obey them. Do not obey them. And yet, continue to treat them well in this world and follow the way of him who turns to me in devotion. Eventually it is to me that all of you shall return. And I shall then tell you all that you did. Again, Allah is saying you do your part, I will judge your parents and I will judge you together. As for following just because your parents tell you to do the wrong thing. You don't obey them. Your duty is to continue to be

00:46:59 --> 00:47:02

good to them as much as you can as a child.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:09

But you don't have to follow them. Allah says follow whoever is devoted to me.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:37

And this also goes to show about people who carry on their ancestral beliefs in the wrong way. They say my family bloodline taught me to believe in that. And if a family believes that a wall is God, they'll say our worship the wall not because the truth because it's my family bloodline. Allah says Don't, don't follow your parents in wrong. Say my father was in wrong as Ibrahim Ali Salam is to say, he said,

00:47:38 --> 00:48:13

My Father, you're following the Shaitan. Yanni the shaitan is leading you astray. Yusuf alayhi salam, when he was in the prison prophet Joseph, he said to his companions in the prison, I left the worship of those who are astray and followed the correct worship of my forefathers because my forefathers were on the truth I followed them not because they were my forefathers. Allah then says that look man said to his son, yeah, born a in in Turku myth color her birth him in holiday.

00:48:15 --> 00:48:19

Feeding software it in movies. Where do you feel?

00:48:21 --> 00:49:12

Own feel? The TV how long in a long and healthy, fun hobby. Look, man said, My son, Allah will bring forth everything. Even if it be as small as the grain of a mustard seed. Even though it'd be hidden inside a rock, or anywhere in the heavens or earth. Allah is most subtle, all aware, what is he telling his son, he's saying, Son, don't only worship Allah, in open when people are watching you. Don't only do good when people are watching you. Fear Allah and do good to be the same when you are in private alone when no one is watching you. For know that. If you think that you're in the dark, thinking that no one sees you I remind you of Allah who sees the little tiny seed even if it's

00:49:12 --> 00:49:16

inside of a rock, to who you're going to hide from, who you're going to hide from.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:59

When you are alone, Allah is there. So beware, son. And as the great scholars used to say, I think it was on what are the Allahu Anhu said, You will know your true faith when your actions in public are the same as in private. Of course, there are people who make mistakes and sin in private. But these people repent, and they keep it a secret between them and Allah and they don't feel good about it. That is also a sign of good faith. But in sha Allah, they need to work towards improving themselves as much as they can. So you're not a hypocrite if your public affairs and your private affairs clash. You're a hypocrite if you deliberately try to appear in public only and when you're

00:49:59 --> 00:49:59

in private

00:50:00 --> 00:50:18

If you do not care whatsoever, you have no care. So stuff that I don't even believe in all that stuff. That's hypocrisy. But if you do care, but you're weak to your desires in secret, that's a different story. hamdulillah know that Allah is forgiving, and try to work towards improving yourself.

00:50:19 --> 00:50:20

He then says to his son,

00:50:21 --> 00:50:28

yeah, booni email signup, more than being an MT. Rufina one how I needed

00:50:29 --> 00:50:31

Cody was better I'll

00:50:34 --> 00:50:39

log back in an economy nice me.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:53

And my son established prayer, in joint all that is good and prohibit forbid all that is evil, and endure with patience whatever affliction befalls you.

00:50:54 --> 00:50:59

Without a doubt, these are among the qualities of true courage and determination.

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

Do you remember in the beginning we said that a Muslim embraces suffering?

00:51:05 --> 00:51:16

Here it is. Life is built on suffering brothers and sisters. The problem with people is that they expect this life to be paradise, you're going the wrong way. This life is not meant to be like that.

00:51:17 --> 00:51:30

So it's your choice. Choose to be determined and brave to face suffering and take it as a positive thing and continue and show yourself and to Allah subhanaw taala that you are still resilient and strong. And now you have your brothers and sisters and sisters who are showing you that

00:51:32 --> 00:51:48

oh, you can turn that into a weakness and a punishment in this world and also in the hereafter. Anything that happens to your brothers and sisters know that you have the ability in sha Allah to get through it, and nothing lasts forever. Everything changes and you'll come out stronger than ever before.

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

Start with the mindset.

00:51:52 --> 00:51:53

Start with the mindset.

00:51:55 --> 00:52:05

Rely on Allah subhanaw taala he says, What's better I learned of sabak be resilient, persevering, be persevering, and hold yourself together.

00:52:07 --> 00:52:10

No matter how much you get rattled when hardships come to you.

00:52:12 --> 00:52:15

A sawbuck masiva means things that you did not expect.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:51

When you are going in a particular smooth line, and suddenly a tragedy happens that was unexpected that causes you pain and gone and backwardness. You think you're going backward. That's called a masiva. Allah says that look, man said to his son, be patient, get through it, son, get through it, because only a short time you got to get through it to test. It's a test for you get through it, you're going to be stronger after it. And now learn from it. What's the better Isla Asaba in early kemenah husband mode, this indeed, is the true quality of courage and determination.

00:52:52 --> 00:53:08

Once you do that, brothers sisters, you will be that 3% of the world who moves forward Insha Allah, Allah then says or alert or sign or hudec le in C one term shinfield the Mara in a long

00:53:09 --> 00:53:10


00:53:14 --> 00:53:21

a lot that says, Do not contemptuously turn your face away from people.

00:53:22 --> 00:53:40

Norwalk heartily upon the earth. Allah does not love the arrogant, and the vain, glorious. Let's go through that very quickly. Look, man is saying to his son, do not turn your face away from people. contemptuously.

00:53:41 --> 00:53:51

It means when you think that you are superior to others and better than others, they are not worthy of you giving them your attention.

00:53:52 --> 00:54:11

It doesn't mean that everybody has to give their attention to every person. Your time is precious. And sometimes you can't. It doesn't mean that it doesn't mean practically like you truly are busy or, you know you've got priorities know. What it means is that when you do it, because you think you're superior to them, and they're not worthy of you.

00:54:12 --> 00:54:30

Do you understand the difference? This is called arrogance and pride. Racism. When you when you think you're racist, you think you're superior. When you've got supremacy over others. You think that because you've got more money, this person can't talk to you. You've got a nicer car can't hang out can't be seen with this person.

00:54:31 --> 00:54:59

You got your own community. The others are peasants. You're up here, man. You're a hotshot. If you were to look for a sole Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you went back in time 1400 years ago, and you wanted to find the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but you've never seen him. Where do you think is the first place you should look? It's not prayer time. But imagine it's not prayer time and you went back in time. 1400 years, you entered into Medina and you're looking for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you find out there are no battles.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:09

He's not overseas is he's in town. It's not solid time it's not jamaa and he's not with his family. Where do you think is the first place you should look?

00:55:11 --> 00:55:13

For look for poor people?

00:55:14 --> 00:55:23

Look for where poor people are sitting, you can recognize them. That is your biggest chance of finding the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because he used to love sitting with the poor people.

00:55:25 --> 00:55:57

That's what it means. Do you know the story either so what are well under a hula Ana, he frowned and turned away when the blind man came to him to talk about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a blind man came to us also SLM had leaders of Quraysh he wanted to talk to them about Islam and he thought if I can talk to them and they can convert to Islam or revert, then they will give strength to Islam. So it's a good cause. But the blind man came not knowing the process. I was talking to leaders. And then he says, Yeah, Rasul Allah yet also he wants to ask him a question. While he called him Yeah, Mohammed, he wasn't Muslim yet. And he kind of avoided him. And Allah recommended Rasul Allah says,

00:55:57 --> 00:56:06

Allah says, Allah so Allah to Allah, he found and turned away from the blind man when he came to him, and how would you know, a messenger of God, whether the blind man will be more beneficial than the leaders that you're talking to?

00:56:07 --> 00:56:09

That's what it means. Secondly, he says,

00:56:11 --> 00:56:20

Do not walk mortally. What does that mean? To walk haughtily means, you know, the types of people who walk

00:56:21 --> 00:56:22


00:56:24 --> 00:56:40

A cocky type of walk, hot shots, the type of talk which screams all eyes on me. That type of walk. You seen those types of people? I hope you're not one of them run sisters. You know that walk. Allah hates that walk.

00:56:41 --> 00:57:12

Allah hates that walk, swaggering, cocky type of walk all eyes on me made on the best out of the shed dooba had a deep neighborhood the Lebanese lyric. Anyway, it means that you are too good for the for the earth, to even be worthy of your feet. So brothers and sisters, Allah hates that type of work. It's not literally the walk like you can walk straight. And it doesn't mean that you got to walk with your back arched, honorable hotdogs saw a man with his head dangling and arched. He said to him stand up.

00:57:15 --> 00:57:32

Don't make Islam look like and so it's don't make Islam look like it's a sickness. Islam is not a sickness, stand up straight. Another man was walking with pride. But also salam said Allah hates that walk. However, only in one time, Allah loved that walk.

00:57:33 --> 00:57:43

His name was a bull Dogen he used to wear a red ribbon in the time of war in battle. And when he wore his red ribbon, he stood out.

00:57:44 --> 00:57:47

Islam doesn't like people who show up and stand out.

00:57:48 --> 00:58:06

But he stood out why the enemies when they saw him with a red ribbon, he knew he was going to become a lion. Don't mess with the red ribbon men. And one day he was walking with his, with his chest up high. And his head up high. The swaggering walk, the one that looked really full of arrogance.

00:58:07 --> 00:58:29

parasocial and he started walking up and down front of the enemy. Plus also Salem laughed and he said, Allah hates that walk except in this situation, because it cause fear and intimidation to the enemy. In that case, yes, but not a person outside that in his car cut you off brother and sisters. That's not the person that you go and show your swaggering nature

00:58:31 --> 00:58:37

it's not when you get into a fight outside of a something stupid No, I'm Muslim is not like that.

00:58:38 --> 00:58:51

Allah says in hola hola yo hip beaucoup lemma hotel in for hood. Mactan. In the original plot implies a person who has a very high opinion of himself. Allah does not like people who think of themselves higher than others.

00:58:53 --> 00:59:17

I'm the best. I'm the greatest for whoever doesn't like for whoever is the one who boasts of his superiority over others. He doesn't stop talking about himself. Every time someone talks is the loudest. Then Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, All ghostly defeat him as she goes along. Most men slow dick in

00:59:19 --> 00:59:29

Colorado and elsewhere de la sought to help me. Be moderate. be moderate in your stride,

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

and lower your voice. Verily the most distinguished Verily, the most disgusting of all voices is the brain of the donkey. The breaking of the donkey it knows those donkey wasn't a fell word. It wasn't an insulting word donkeys donkey, but you know how the donkey sounds when it breaks? So Allah Subhana Allah is saying be moderate in your stride, meaning don't walk on earth or drive your car or get on your motorbike or your horse and think you're higher than everyone else. Not that type of

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

Some people that go and do burnouts so that everyone can see

01:00:06 --> 01:00:06

you know

01:00:08 --> 01:00:13

you know what a sick call dude this guy's some people posted on social media

01:00:14 --> 01:00:17

what no one else had a boy

01:00:18 --> 01:00:32

you know they put all these colors and everything and I mean I know you're happy but honestly it's not a very good character for a Muslim or other things boasting about what you've got boasting about what you achieved boasting boasting but honestly well I'm telling you nobody cares

01:00:33 --> 01:00:35

nobody cares maybe just your family

01:00:37 --> 01:00:38

tell you something

01:00:40 --> 01:00:54

come down off the horse a little bit Wallah you'll feel better. I promise you Allah you'll feel better. Nothing wrong with driving a nice car. I think wrong driving a nice motor but I hate motorbikes. But let's say you got them, but just be moderate. Don't do don't do it for the people.

01:00:56 --> 01:01:00

Anything, anything in life, don't be haughty, be moderate and humble.

01:01:03 --> 01:01:30

One way to be humble is to praise other people's belongings. Genuinely I've got a friend every time he sees me. In my car, he says, well, Lebra Masha, Allah tuberculoma Allah bless your cow, Allah hits beautiful and he smiles. Now good. I feel I also feel humbled. So I tried it myself, it makes me feel amazing. It's like I own 10 of those cars. When I praise it. It's like I own the best beauty in the world. And I praise my brothers beautiful face. Alright, in a brotherly way.

01:01:32 --> 01:01:33

It's a beautiful thing.

01:01:35 --> 01:01:46

Lastly, hello speaks to the young people in soret. Use of now a one more thing, raising your voice. It doesn't mean that you don't raise your voice. It doesn't mean that you make your voice, little and small, what's your name?

01:01:47 --> 01:02:19

What's your name? None other and you don't scream it out. What it means is when there's a need to raise your voice raise it when there's no need lower. But in normal cases, keep it moderate. It means this is what it means. It means that when you're in a gathering, when you're out on the street, when you're with your family, don't have a habit of always needing to raise your voice so that everyone can hear you and no one else. You want to be the person where all eyes are on them and all ears are on them.

01:02:20 --> 01:02:56

Allah does not like that. Be moderate and listen, give and take well you'll feel better about yourself. So these are things that a youth should learn Inshallah, as the golden I swear Wallahi you'll develop into an amazing person. Lastly is sort of use of we all know the story, the story of sort of use of use of Alayhis Salam is known for many reasons. Number one, he was a child of about 10 or 11 years old when he saw the dream. Next he had a good relationship with his father and his mother. Third, he went through domestic violence, his brothers tried to kill him. And then they threw him in the well and they sold him to merchants passing by, he became a slave. He missed his

01:02:56 --> 01:03:19

father, his father missed his son. He cried for him so badly over these until he became blind. He missed his brother who was from his same mother, and he ended up becoming a slave in Egypt. The story goes long. The most important part for the young people is the following. Allah says, while I'm showing down, Dana, how can

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

what can the Nika energies in seeking? Allah says in chapter 12, verse 22, and when Joseph Yusuf reached the age of maturity, we granted him judgment and knowledge, thus do We reward those who do good. So the first thing about young people is to educate yourself, read, educate, gather skills, gather more knowledge, read about anything that will benefit you. It doesn't have to be purely Hadith, purely purely Syrah that do it and learn a little bit of it but you don't have to be scholar in in one area. Read about other things, anything of your interest that is beneficial to you and to others and to your hereafter develop yourself and cultivate yourself brothers sisters, so that you

01:04:00 --> 01:04:08

are able to judge better and know better. Number two, Allah says, whoa, that team wifey bank.

01:04:10 --> 01:04:12

I've seen one one now continue.

01:04:14 --> 01:04:27

Call that hey Turlock Carla long in BF Sen ms more

01:04:28 --> 01:04:34

in your friendly home on the moon.

01:04:35 --> 01:04:59

And it so happened that the lady in whose house Yusuf was living sought to tempt him to herself. And one day after she bolted the doors, she said to him, come on now. Come on, Joseph answered, may Allah grant me refuge My Lord has provided me an honorable abode for me. So how can I do something so evil such wrongdoers never prosper?

01:05:00 --> 01:05:24

Brothers and sisters, he was tempted by a powerful, strong woman who had him as a slave and she locked the doors and he was a slave. On top of that he was the most attractive man any person has ever laid their eyes on. We all know about Yusuf Ali's seller, a slave. Nobody cares what he does. If he does anything haram with her.

01:05:25 --> 01:05:47

Everyone's gonna blame her. How could an honorable woman of power seduce her slave? It's her reputation on the line not here. So it's got nothing to lose. Number two, she will protect them. She'll look after him. So he's got some things to gain not only through pleasure, but also through life. Number three, she locked the doors nobody's going to find out.

01:05:49 --> 01:05:51

And number four, anything that goes wrong, she'll cover him.

01:05:52 --> 01:05:57

But what did he say? My Allah, I seek refuge in Allah.

01:06:01 --> 01:06:07

And then he said, My Lord has looked after me me remember Allah's blessings that He has put upon me and the hereafter and why has created me and all of that stuff.

01:06:10 --> 01:06:17

My brothers and sisters, he said, those who are wrongdoers never prosper, meaning those who follow the temptations and desires will not prosper.

01:06:18 --> 01:06:36

If you allow your desires and your temptations to control you, you become a slave to your desires. If you become a slave to your desires, and you get tempted by the opposite *, or the same * or whatever you want to call it, or buy a chair even or buy a wall or whatever, some people today they get tempted by so many things.

01:06:37 --> 01:07:01

Then brothers and sisters, you are now a slave to your temptations, you will not prosper. What does it mean? It means that you will not be able to put in a place of leadership and authority with power that people will follow you and respect you. You will not be able to control yourself because you'll be easily tempted and fall into temptations and desires. I hear stories where people used to work in the corporate world. And they told me

01:07:03 --> 01:07:22

this day and age in the West, if we were the wedding ring, we take it off. I said why do you take it off? They said to me when you have a wedding ring, the women they go after you and the men go after a woman who's wearing a wedding ring I said Why? Why? Said because there's no strings attached. They know you're not going to come after them after that.

01:07:23 --> 01:07:27

So it's like a one night stand and nothing's going to happen to nightstands, 100 nightstands

01:07:29 --> 01:07:35

but they said, ah because he's wearing a ring he'll go back to his wife, he won't say anything or do anything.

01:07:36 --> 01:07:53

Well, Allah has so many brothers, and even some sisters have fallen into this. I know their stories. And the last $5 save them. And the man was strong. Some of them left the old businesses in their corporate world or wherever they worked. In order to escape this. Yusuf alayhi salam, his story is long and

01:07:55 --> 01:07:58

he ran to the door. He ran away from her.

01:07:59 --> 01:08:00

And she ran after him.

01:08:03 --> 01:08:05

And she grabbed his shirt from the back

01:08:07 --> 01:08:09

to us to pull him back to her.

01:08:10 --> 01:08:16

And she ripped his shirt from the aggressiveness. And then her husband.

01:08:17 --> 01:08:24

Well, we assume his or her husband or her man, he arrived at the door. Immediately. She said What's the punishment of somebody who seduces your wife?

01:08:27 --> 01:08:29

Except to be imprisoned or a torture?

01:08:31 --> 01:08:32

Because you're supposed to kill them, it's

01:08:34 --> 01:08:42

but she said prison or torture. Meaning she is trying to keep him alive. Why? Because she wants to seduce him again.

01:08:44 --> 01:08:46

So he said she's the one that seduced me.

01:08:48 --> 01:09:09

So they got a judge and one member of her family bed witness that if his shirt is ripped from the front, then he seduced her and if it's ripped from the back, she's seduced him. When they found the shirt ripped from the back, hey, her husband said to her, this is from your plots. Use of Camilla Can you keep this quiet? Just forget about it.

01:09:10 --> 01:09:22

And so it was forgotten. Women in the city said oh, look, look the mystery of the powerful woman the wife of the treasurer seduced her own slaves. She's gone crazy. She's nuts. She's psycho.

01:09:23 --> 01:09:51

So then she called them to come in and she got a cushion and some pillows and gave them some food to cut with a knife. As they were cutting and talking she told us to come out. When he came out. They all just stared at him mesmerized and hypnotized. And they forgot that they were cutting the fruit or vegetable whatever is in their hands. Allah says for called partner Adi when they began slicing their own hands

01:09:53 --> 01:09:54

without realizing

01:09:55 --> 01:09:59

over and over again. They sliced it once, twice, three times.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:18

because they were so hypnotized by his looks, they didn't even realize they're cutting their hands three four times. What pulling her hair Shatila. They say, Oh, God, Maha Bashara that's not a human in her Illa Malecon Karim. Oh, he is but an angel, a generous, beautiful angel.

01:10:19 --> 01:10:25

And then the woman said, this is the one that you accused me of and looked down on me and degraded may look what happened to you.

01:10:26 --> 01:10:31

And if he doesn't do what I said, because I am the one who seduced him, I'm going to get him imprisoned.

01:10:32 --> 01:10:44

You'll suffer I said, I'm gonna make dua to Allah that night and said, call our decision on a hot boy in the Yemen mega drone and ELA said, My Lord, the prison is more beloved to my heart than what they are calling me to do.

01:10:45 --> 01:10:58

So now it's collective. All the women have this intention. He said, The prison is more beloved to me than what they are calling me to do. Because that's gone to hellfire. The prison of this world is now more beloved.

01:10:59 --> 01:11:30

What Allah does refund Nikita Han la Henault, a commoner Jaya Haley, and if you do not deter them away from me, I will probably fall prey to them. In my normal human nature, and I will become among the ignorant and last ones. Foster jerboa horrible, his Lord responded to him for sort of fine, okay, the one he saved him from them in a horse, semi Aulani. Allah, He has all prayers and he knows all what happening. And then he ended up in prison and the story is long, he ended up becoming the treasurer of Egypt, a big powerful person. And he was

01:11:32 --> 01:11:47

a CT came and they found out that she truly seduced him and so on and so forth. And his whole family came back, and his dream came true. Whereas parents bowed to him, and his brothers who tried to kill him bow to him. Brothers and sisters, the story of Yusuf Ali said and this young man

01:11:49 --> 01:11:58

is an amazing story for young people. These the formulas today that I told you brothers and sisters, that will create an amazing man and an amazing woman out of you young people
