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

Yeah was for that was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was off the edge nine

00:00:06--> 00:00:10

brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:00:13--> 00:00:18

And what a pleasure and delight it is for me to be here once again before these beautiful faces,

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

faces in sha Allah that will be full of life in the hereafter. ask Allah that we do meet over there

00:00:26--> 00:00:35

at the hands of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Selim, where he will call the oma where he sees their light emanating from their faces and bodies. And mean.

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

Can you

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

sisters, there's been a complaint that there's a lot of noise happening next Oh, can we just keep it down so the sisters can hear the lecture inshallah soccer.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

My brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

I am here to support

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

a noble project in sha Allah,

00:01:09--> 00:01:18

which I believe sincerely will add a benefit to the community. And the type of community that we'll ask for is the use of the community.

00:01:20--> 00:01:24

I have children, many of you here have children.

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

I was raised in this country. And many of you who are raised here as well.

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

I had the privilege of seeing what kinds of a life it is outside of this country.

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

Specifically in Lebanon,

00:01:39--> 00:01:51

and the friends overseas from my experience, the good friends, there was a large amount of them to find, you could find good friends in a lot of places in our great role models.

00:01:52--> 00:01:55

In this country, what I personally discovered

00:01:56--> 00:02:05

was that there is a lack of good friends. When I say good friends, I meant the friends that we are so much allies, please leave friends that will help you away

00:02:06--> 00:02:16

from the things that will harm you to corruption, friends, that will lead you away from the harmful things to you, and lead you to the way that will make you end up in jail.

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

And I found that we are in terrible need in dire need of an alternative to the youth

00:02:29--> 00:02:40

where they can establish their identity. And where they can find the belonging. The brother announced that I'm a teacher, I've been teaching for years actually, and counseling a lot of the youth

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

on top of the list. The problem in the US today, especially here in Australia

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

is that they're not they do not have that sense of belonging or identity. And the role model,

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

very hard for them to find.

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

There are so many bad friends, I don't want to go into too much detail about the counseling that I've gone through.

00:03:06--> 00:03:12

In case someone may know, some of the people like counseling, I don't know. It's a matter of privacy.

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

But the counseling issues that I encounter among the young, the youth, especially at the age of 14 1516, seven that age,

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

like some of them will make your hair go white.

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

And most of them are the result of that trend.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

There is a lack of good company.

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

And this project

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

is one of those projects, which I feel are a necessity here.

00:03:42--> 00:04:12

We need places to the youth where they can resort to some type of entertainment. Find friends where they can talk to at their age, talk to them about their problems. Have fun with them on a teenage devil on the youth level. And even for the elderly or older people, their parents to be able to find other parents who they can share ideas within the upbringing of the young people. Brothers and sisters are also certain and you all know that he concentrated on the youth more than anything else.

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

And the majority of his companion, while you were talking about from the age of 1312.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

average age was about 2025.

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

And along mentioned the people or the use of the cave in solitude

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

in a home theater, and I know they are up being in Medina.

00:04:35--> 00:04:43

They were youth. They believed in their Lord and we increase them in guidance. The story of the use of the cave.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

youth are a great importance to us. And I believe personally that sense is a complex like Missa tee that is going to be a complex not only with a message, but also a place from which education and entertainment how that

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

entertainment for the youth

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

worship of Allah, Allah is there a social gathering,

00:05:07--> 00:05:12

counseling, these all the things that the youth need today, if not the older ones as well.

00:05:14--> 00:05:20

And we cannot do this unless we actually establish a unity with one another we work together.

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yo de la hymnology

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

Allah supports

00:05:29--> 00:05:34

encompasses the community Gemma when you are together,

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

but when we are apart

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

arakata describes when you are apart, he says in the hadith of translate in English.

00:05:46--> 00:05:51

It is like when when when sheep is talking to farmers, right? When a sheep goes astray.

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

The first thing that the wolf will attack is the sheep.

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

But the sheep that are together, are protected and say

00:06:03--> 00:06:03

we're not sheep.

00:06:05--> 00:06:29

But we are people who require the guidance of our Lord Allah subhana wa Ireland and he tells us why toss him only heaven in Egypt. Jamie, I wanna for Rocco, all of you come together and unite on a rope of Allah what is the rope of Allah and do not disunite the rope of Allah is the guidance of Allah and Allah the Quran and the Sunnah as much as we know, the example of the prophet SAW Selim in his companion,

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

that which pleases Allah and staying away from that which Allah told us not to go close to.

00:06:35--> 00:06:44

So we advise one another on that we meet each other on that. But if a person is away from the community, from the Muslim community, and he's alone,

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

then they are there are dangers out there, my brothers and sisters.

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

As I said, being raised here, and counseling the youth.

00:06:54--> 00:07:07

In the past, we used to complain or we used to be afraid if our children go outside the home, we have to be careful who they hang around with, or where they go. Yeah. So much dangerous out there. Yeah, morally and physically.

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

Today, unfortunately, with the advancements of technology, the danger lies inside the bedroom of your son and daughter, the bedroom, on the internet,

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

on the TV, but especially on the internet, I'm not saying the internet's bad. Internet can be used for a lot of good.

00:07:25--> 00:07:38

But unfortunately, the youth are resorting to a different world. They live a different world inside their own bedrooms, and the poor parents are thinking, our children are inside, they're in the home and handling that they're in the bedroom doing their homework. No, they're not.

00:07:43--> 00:07:49

What are they looking at? Who are they socializing with? Which guidance that I taking? What kind of a world are they living.

00:07:51--> 00:08:01

And so we have up to two identities, three identities, one at home, one at school and one in the bedroom with the whole world, on the internet.

00:08:04--> 00:08:25

And don't have that guidance. Personally, just on a side note, I would like to advise a lot of the parents that if you have children still at young age, get them used to looking at the computer outside like in the lounge room, outside, in open areas, let them go wherever they like on the internet, but in open areas don't get them used to having something secluded by themselves inside the bedroom.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

A little while ago.

00:08:32--> 00:08:41

A young girl, probably about 17 years old, knocked on my door at 2am 2am in the morning.

00:08:43--> 00:08:51

So I woke up and it was the lady there. And a young girl was with him. She lived in the area and knew that you know we were Muslims.

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

And the woman Muslim woman dropped her off and said Please take care of her brother

00:08:59--> 00:08:59

in law.

00:09:00--> 00:09:14

I asked her to enter she wouldn't talk to me. So I got my wife sat down. I said What's the matter? She's shaking she's about to. I looked at her Richard colorists particular self, a Muslim girl with hijab and everything.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

So she spoke to my wife and we found out that she was influenced

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

with a very bad habit.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

I don't want to say what it is because it's quite bad.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

And she said I feel like I should die I should kill myself.

00:09:35--> 00:09:52

Why do you want to kill yourself? Still at the prime of your age? Still got the whole old you're using shell in front of you for luggages your life? No, no, no, no, it's time I should die and I don't want to meet Allah except that he's pleased with me. Now all it was was thought that probably an actual two very minor acts but the thoughts were killing her.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

And handler we counseled her and called her parents handler we tried to figure it out and

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

You know, still counseling the parents in turtle today. However, what was the problem?

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

Why did what what what what led her to such an extent

00:10:10--> 00:10:37

it was one lucky the company, there was no other company but the bad company outside there are so many of them after school should meet up with friends without wanting to go to the shopping center. There's nothing wrong with that. And over there, she met other girls from University from other places who don't have a religion and don't care for atheists. They've got this different idea. We know what we live in this world brothers and sisters, homosexuality is a big problem. And it's on the increase.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

People have told me that in Sydney, there is a new place establishment Muslim, gay society or something.

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

Is that correct?

00:10:49--> 00:10:55

We have drug issues. And the good and if you want to know more about that,

00:10:56--> 00:11:07

I have a book called crime and criminology statistics of crimes in Australia, every year is updated, you should see the type of crime that is mentioned in it, you don't hear it in the media, you don't hear on the news much.

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

Drugs are given attractive names to our youth.

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

ecstasy, what's ecstasy? It's a nice word. It's a word that you know, really attracts the

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

speed. Everybody wants to be high on speed.

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

Does the name called angels does?

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

What is the combination between an angel? And does they call this

00:11:36--> 00:11:39

drug angels does that come angels?

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

Many other names

00:11:43--> 00:12:00

and the marketing this terrible, deadly product that are used with this name. Why? Because you see, when you hear names like this, you become cool. You become cool actually with with cool names, not necessarily drugs, but cool names. And they market these drugs with these cool names.

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

And they're on the increase. Now you don't know what they're getting themselves into. There's no one else to guide them. They're out there.

00:12:09--> 00:12:16

I had a student who was complaining of something really terrible. I can't mention it. But how did you reach them?

00:12:18--> 00:12:21

in a span of only two years from when he was in a nine?

00:12:22--> 00:12:32

He's the he things from friends. They used to say if you try this, if you try that feeling here is good. And the feeling here look like that. Wait till you're in year 10 or 11.

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

What are they saying? What are these you think to each other? He reached them he did a terrible act hamdulillah he regretted and repented was still counseling till today and hamdulillah.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

But

00:12:46--> 00:12:53

there is a very, there is a great shortage of people who can guide this youth in the right direction.

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

Extreme shortage. And if we say one,

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

there is 1000 who don't have any help.

00:13:03--> 00:13:10

I'm not telling you this to entice you to donate tomorrow and shall if you want to donate the sake of Allah that's between you and Allah subhanaw taala encourage you about that. However,

00:13:12--> 00:13:18

I am encouraging you to work as a community towards something for the youth and ignore our political differences.

00:13:20--> 00:14:01

It sickens us to death, these political differences in Melbourne and in Sydney and everywhere you go, political differences, ownership of things were the best. No, let's be a community and focus on the good that a particular organization particular people are doing. Let's focus on that insha Allah, because at the end of the day, I'll tell you the story, one, when I was younger, before I was married, and getting involved a lot in religion, 111 from a young age and 111 is the consequence that I had parents who were religious and humbler but they were family members, who used to tease me and say, you know, this community stuff, it's gonna it's, you know, drain you and there's no time go

00:14:01--> 00:14:09

and get yourself. You know, you should work towards, you know, your own future and everything which humbler I was but for some reason, I didn't like it.

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

These particular families, one in particular,

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

I said to him, when when your son goes astray, who are you going to go to the engineer next door? Which education is excellent, it is made strong Muslims.

00:14:25--> 00:14:29

Are you going to go to the tradesperson Muslim next, who are you going to go to?

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

You're going to get to a person who is able to counsel your son morally and get them off the street.

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

So Pamela, three years down the track, it's exactly what happened.

00:14:42--> 00:14:46

And these people come back to find who is there to help our children.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

I'm sure you can relate to these stories as well.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

So there is a dire need for these people who can guide and not any people. We need people who are raised in this country who wanted to

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

And the lifestyle of this country

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

who are able to relate in their language unfortunately

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

it's sad inshallah it'll change. We go to most of them associate we find that it's set up the people over 30 years old. This is still the case but have led suddenly it's improving

00:15:21--> 00:15:41

the hookah ban the rows are mostly lectures mostly in Arabic we can find during Turkish or whatever but even whether in Turkish or Arabic the use of the news of the of the of the Arabs news to the Albanian use of the others. You're not getting the communication properly. Even if you translate it. We need to connect with them on a personal level, my brothers and sisters

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

and it needs to be attractive.

00:15:51--> 00:16:01

You know when I hear about people building mosques, 100 letters A good thing massage, it's a good thing. But when I asked about this machine, they wanted to make it the way the prophesied xlm initially intended

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

to build his machine. And number one, how did they build it? Let's go back in time and see what the mustard of the prompts are send them was for

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

them sallam.

00:16:15--> 00:16:20

He said we need to build a Masjid. And the communities are on par and the Mahajan got together.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

And they began to work with their wealth and with their bodies, even Mohammed colossal and himself was carrying bricks on his shoulders.

00:16:29--> 00:16:58

They built the masjid out of just common material. A bit of bricks bit of cement. The floor was still muddy soil. They put some straw mats, and the top was made of branches and palm trees. nothing spectacular. There wasn't a big pillar this today spending $200,000 on on pillars and on minarets and on domes and I mean, have the numbers look nice. That's good. They're attractive, good. But today's seems to be the the main focus.

00:16:59--> 00:17:02

Roseanne tells us about the signs before the last hour.

00:17:03--> 00:17:14

He says was reported along howdini says and when was the preferred method. And when the messages are decorated, meaning the priority of the budget is decoration.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

Composite itself then awaits the last hour to come.

00:17:21--> 00:17:24

And the time the prompts are said and the priority was on what you're doing them as

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

well what kind of attractiveness there are no message what comes out of them.

00:17:30--> 00:17:40

And so when they built the message what happened in it, not only was there solid and teaching of the Quran, there was skills people came in to learn skills, archery,

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

trade

00:17:45--> 00:18:08

they even socialized in there but on good terms. They learn from each other skills in there are also taught me to meet with his companions in there and plan make plans of how to meet the enemy. When they were coming to attack him. They would plan on how to you know set up, set up a community how to get to set up a system. in Medina it was all done in the masjid.

00:18:11--> 00:18:19

And there is one story of a man named for pirate master of the Aloha know he came to the masjid and promised our cinemas not relying on a red blanket.

00:18:21--> 00:18:53

And he said to him jasola logic to uploadable I have come to you messenger of God seeking knowledge. Were at the masjid. He didn't say I have come to pray a prayer or I've come to pray to pray. It wasn't even time for load or anything was just in between the middle of the day. It just came I wanted to learn something so whether you go to the masjid and guess what there was people there in the masjid ready to teach must it wasn't luck or you couldn't find anyone to learn from there were people to look to teach and he found the proper size and and to his

00:18:54--> 00:19:06

opportunity. So Salim stood up and he said marhaba polyfilla in in Nepali Bella Bella Tasuku Monica Samira baba baba baba Hata Yakubu hot Diablos Pema and in Mahabharata,

00:19:08--> 00:19:40

verily Welcome to the seeker of knowledge, verily the seeker of knowledge when he or she goes out to seek it and you've come here to the masjid, the angels come looking for him or her. And when they find them, they surround them. And then another group of angels will come. And when they find that there's no place for them to surround him, they climb on top of the other angels. And then more angels will come they cannot climb on top of them until they reach the sky. In Mahabharata him Lena Jaco because they love what he or she is seeking. You're famous, you're popular.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

We want to make that opportunity facilitate that opportunity for our youth and attract them to come to learn that knowledge from there.

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

When I was growing up, I remember you were probably you don't have this every Melbourne, there was this place called Don Bosco.

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

It's a Christian organization they christianize you

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

Sydney roads popular street, what are we doing there?

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

There's no

00:20:06--> 00:20:37

there's no Christian lessons. There's no church in there's nothing, it's a Christian Center. What does it do is trampolines, table tennis in miter? At what all you have to do is if you had a property, you give it to them, and then you go and use their equipment, you come back and get your property. I love to go there. Wow. And we met all these other people met girls we met when I was only about 11 years old, 10 years old. When I say nice, I don't mean what you think, you know, just talking to them and showing off when we're jumping up on the trampoline. So things like that.

00:20:38--> 00:20:49

We really want to wait the 567 times. So my father and I found out when see this place he founded as a Christian organizations not writing or what are they doing slowly. So prevented us from going there.

00:20:53--> 00:20:58

They have these organize it and they focused on entertainment for the youth.

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

These brothers handler from what I've seen in them,

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

how you minded

00:21:05--> 00:21:33

and the creative creativity for you, as a teacher, when I first you know encounter a students and they don't know, you know, the religious looking teachers, they try to avoid you. Because they think that we're boring. They think that we're going to we don't know creative, think that everything's wrong. But when you open up to them, you show creativity so we can entertain ourselves after they start coming to you. But what's with it is also good education

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

is also good education.

00:21:38--> 00:21:45

I remember when I was a child, 13 years old, I used to worry about going to the masjid photo is why?

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

I'll tell you why.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

Because one time I'm standing in the second row.

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

And a man comes up and says How old are you said 13. He said Go to the back.

00:21:57--> 00:22:06

Stop going every other truck, go to the back go to the bank. Well, he had hurt me deep inside. So I'm 13 years old growing up and come to the front line, go to the back.

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

We need to go forward now brothers brothers and sisters into really understanding the minds of the youth

00:22:14--> 00:22:28

Aristotle and how to retreat to you just on a side note, he had a brother in law who I know you know his former adopted son and they're working in industry because of the market and say that a lender sees a girl a woman

00:22:29--> 00:22:49

and she attracted him so he is talking with the browser someone is moving his head like this lady is looking at the woman and the pros are talking and looking forward he noticed him all he did was he just kept his cheek eyes move his head back to where it was. After a little while they would look back and keep talking just moving straight back gentle. Gently.

00:22:53--> 00:23:10

So again, uniting not only on the rope of Allah subhanaw taala but also understanding who you are also supervised lm said, told us we had this anessa Allah Qadri okoli him speak to the people in accordance with the level of the understanding.

00:23:12--> 00:23:15

This is what we want to see uniting for the youth.

00:23:18--> 00:23:31

Four or five years ago, six years ago, probably my lectures were mostly sort of, you know, people 20 years old and above, probably even 30 and above. I found that after being a teacher, the youth require attention.

00:23:32--> 00:23:36

So I tried to focus on those 1211 year olds

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

simplifying the language

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

and so we need more of those types of centers and places and I think inshallah this is one of them. My brothers and sisters in Islam

00:23:50--> 00:24:02

are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let Ania hadiah Allahu vichara, Julian Rajan washy, Hiram Lima, Allah tala Hisham, Ohio min somebody non

00:24:03--> 00:24:18

for Allah, Allah to guide one person on your hands. It is better than what the sun has risen upon. Or in those days it also sometimes it's better than the best of camels. To them, the best of camels is very dear to really get it.

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

You may not be able

00:24:23--> 00:24:37

to have the ability to speak to the youth. You may not have the ability to write books or pamphlets or attract or entertain, you may not have the ability to interact with the youth.

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

You may not have that ability.

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

But if you are financially able,

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

then it's as if you have guided them as well. financially able to help someone establish a center like this. And those people do that effort. Then every time someone is guided, you get a share of the reward from Allah with God.

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

Because the prophet SAW Selim also said what then do Allen Hynek is the person who who points to that point another person in a direction guide a person in the direction facilitates the opportunity for a person in the direction of good. It is as if you are doing it yourself. This is the prophet SAW Selim, howdy Adele and Heidi katha is the one who points the person in the direction of good It is as if you are doing it yourself.

00:25:30--> 00:25:40

Even though you could sit at home and entertain yourself, not worry about anything not worried about you know, the community at all. But what you have done is you have contributed in a way that you can

00:25:42--> 00:25:48

we can all speak, we can all right. We can all attract or we can do other things.

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

And by the way,

00:25:52--> 00:26:11

Rosatom tells us lengthen a little hotter, come in a boon, you will not reach great piety until you have donated from that which you love the most. And you are donating from what that we love the most in order to receive that which you love even more and that is the reward from Allah and His pleasure.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

We'll get back to that inshallah in a minute.

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said hiero comment on level four and

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

the best among you all.

00:26:22--> 00:26:32

Who is he speaking to? Who is he speaking to brothers and sisters? When the Prophet has done and said the best among you will be speaking to us. We went living then

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

we went live in who was initially speaking to

00:26:36--> 00:26:39

his companions, it some of them go to jihad.

00:26:40--> 00:26:46

Jihad de Sevilla, Lahore highest form of of martyrdom.

00:26:47--> 00:26:57

Some of them donate a lot. Yes, we're talking about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How much work could they have done more than us? Yet he is addressing them saying hi, Rocco.

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

The best tool is among you.

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

hydro commentaar lemon, Cora. And the best among you is the one who studies the Quran and teaches it to others.

00:27:09--> 00:27:20

Not just memorization, but teaching its meanings and understanding. Because that is what you would make the man this is how you can make a beautiful community that's how you can bring the world together by understanding the guidance of Allah

00:27:22--> 00:27:50

hydroclimate Allah Quran was the best among is wanting to teach who understands that and then teaches that some of us here don't even know the Arabic language. We don't have the opportunity. Some of our parents didn't have the opportunity like us today to seek education. It cost a lot of money that time. What What can they do is the door closed for them? No, the door is still open, you can contribute. You may not be well versed in the Quran, but you can assist others who can teach your children in sha Allah

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

assist them in some way.

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

Or who follow from Allah while he was telling him he

00:28:01--> 00:28:05

was generous to his enemies in the Battle of

00:28:07--> 00:28:30

hell. Let's have a look. After they fought in the Battle of better, and the Muslims gained victory with the assistance of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Muslims captured a few captives from among the ranks of the enemies. These were enemies that had killed some Muslims already chopped them up, kill them, kill them under the most beloved to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam but they took them and took them as captains.

00:28:33--> 00:28:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to his companions, feed them from what you feed yourselves and look after them, until they hear the words of Allah. Then the prophet SAW Selim stood up and he said to the captives to the to the enemies, any one of you who teaches one Muslim, one Muslim or 10, Muslim sorry, how to read and write.

00:28:55--> 00:29:00

Like language, how to communicate, read and write, then they are free.

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

I don't want anything else from them.

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

So to the enemy.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

Pitch 10 lessons how to read and write and you are free.

00:29:12--> 00:29:14

We want to teach not enemies,

00:29:15--> 00:29:19

not just neighbors, not just friends, we want to teach our family our children our blood.

00:29:22--> 00:29:35

You want to contribute in that I had a brother today off the hook by asking whether my children you know I want them to be raised in a way that is pleasing to allow them to avoid bad company. What can I do? I mean, I try my best at home, they're at school, but what can I do?

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

Say brother go and assist those Muslim organizations that are working for the youth. There are many of them and hamdulillah Yes, maybe inshallah, one day they'll all unite together. And they'll be together but they are united at heart. They are united at work. And they are all working for the same reason in sha Allah. But at the end of the day, who are they helping? They are helping your children.

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Your younger brothers and sisters.

00:30:03--> 00:30:24

First the LM help, was generous to free the enemies for teaching them how to read and write because now they can read and write the code. And then what about us, Muslims, family, blood, where our youth heading to my brothers and sisters, they are on our shoulders, they are on our shoulders, we are responsible for them.

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

As a teacher,

00:30:38--> 00:30:43

you open lockers, you look on the tables, look in their books,

00:30:44--> 00:30:52

I have to look through their diaries, some time. And a diary, something very personal was taught to a youth, right? their lockers are very personal to them.

00:30:53--> 00:31:02

The tables were it's just something cool that they do. It's a habit to ride on tables, messages to others. And there you can read the character of the youth.

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

And I see what they're influenced by

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

pop music.

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

You know, some

00:31:12--> 00:31:27

some people, some learners, Muslims, they are on the opinion that, you know, instruments of music are halal. I'm not on their opinion, but I do not disrespect those who do use it believe they have some of their own.

00:31:28--> 00:31:48

But the problem is not with instruments of music alone, because even those who do say it's Hillel, they say but it's also the type of music he listens, he has to be the type of music that you know, involved in in, for example, nasheeds or something. As I said, I don't agree personally, but I'm not going to put them down. But we all agree on one common points.

00:31:50--> 00:32:05

It depends on the type of music as well. I mean, pop music is not something to go to. What are these doing? They are resorting to the worst of the music, what kind of music, they watch the clips, they follow what they do. And so the character begins to develop in them.

00:32:06--> 00:32:30

They're all models are these pop stars. And you know what they do? They pride themselves in some of them when they say oh, did you know someone says the Muslim? icons are Muslim? Ah, I love him. Because he's a Muslim. Because he's a Muslim. I wish he wasn't no Muslim. If that's the case, why? Look at what he is portraying Islam as I'm a Muslim, it was just quick. women everywhere, shaking their bodies in front of him.

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

What kind of a Muslim is that?

00:32:36--> 00:32:43

Southern say ice cube is a Muslim. And I don't know I swallowed all these. They're Muslim. So I didn't I didn't care if there was

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

I know of pops, pop stars and rap artists who became Muslim and they lived that whole world.

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

As a name loon, if you've ever heard of it can watch him on YouTube Loon.

00:32:59--> 00:33:06

But are you are resorting to find an identity where at the most attractive, cool places.

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

And so you see it in their character in their dress. In their talk? The shame is getting less and less.

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

My brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:33:20--> 00:33:39

There's a story I heard once from a speaker, I'd like to share it with you. He says there was I don't know the truth of the story is true or not. But the moral is really good. There was this man who wanted to deliver a sermon one time. And you know, he was confused. What am I going to talk about today?

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

And on top of that, he's turned five year old son running around him and annoying him daddy daddy daddy Dad, Dad Dad that everyone that that that does dad that.

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

Some of you know the story.

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

So the father gets up and says how am I going to distract my son took him to a little room.

00:34:02--> 00:34:08

And he found the book. And you rip the page out of that book. It had the map of the world on it.

00:34:10--> 00:34:17

And he kept these pages up into pieces and said to his son, son, if he can put this map together, I'm going to give you five bucks.

00:34:19--> 00:34:23

The father goes back thinking about the topic for his hotel. What am I going to talk about?

00:34:25--> 00:34:33

Five minutes later the son comes back Dad, dad, dad that Father looks at his son says what Nelson said Look, I put the map together.

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

For the looks at the map. Truly he did all the countries, the continents, the state everything exactly where it is.

00:34:44--> 00:34:56

And he says How did you do that? I can't even do it. Is that easy that is if before you cut the page, there's a picture of a man on the other side. And I thought if I can put the man together then the map will come together by itself.

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

The man for the week.

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

looks at his son says,

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

Son, he's you $5 you deserve it. And thank you for helping me figure out the topic of my hope. But today

00:35:12--> 00:35:15

if you put the man together, the world will come together.

00:35:18--> 00:35:20

He put this individual us together,

00:35:21--> 00:35:29

the world will come together, your nations will come together, what a nation is built out of that built out of families, families built out of individuals.

00:35:30--> 00:35:46

And families need help individuals, you fix up an individual, the individual gets married, picks it up, obviously chooses a good husband or a good wife. And then I raised the children a good way you fix the future generation is going to be something enlightening.

00:35:47--> 00:35:57

And there is a poet who says about the mother I know madrasa, Tony da, da da, da da, Araki. The mother is like a school. She's an educational institution.

00:35:58--> 00:36:07

If you look after her well and prepare her well, you would have prepared a generation full of wisdom and full of good character and good education.

00:36:11--> 00:36:20

There are youth, men who need to talk to men, youth, girls, sisters who need to talk to systems about personal issues, and how can we do that if we don't establish

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

centers and places where they can resort to

00:36:25--> 00:36:41

people who are professional people are qualified people who are skilled. And I cannot do that without the financial assistance of the community, or the skills of the community. If you have a skill or you have a financial abilities and all of these can help even my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

what law here This world is nothing

00:36:46--> 00:36:53

nothing nothing in the life of this world is anything except play and amusement. Allah Allah says this in the Quran

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

feel and when you when

00:37:11--> 00:37:14

can I tell anyone anything diabetic

00:37:16--> 00:37:16

to

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

age or fat or almost

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

age or fat or homeless.

00:37:25--> 00:37:30

Miyako no hope on will feel it I

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

feel I mean a lot he

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

won a

00:37:41--> 00:37:48

boom in had, which means no a losses. Know that this worldly life is nothing but play and amusement

00:37:50--> 00:37:52

and competition between one another.

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

Who can have

00:37:57--> 00:38:06

a nicer looking home. nicer looking clothes, nicer looking cars, lighter looking wife, nicer looking. Whatever

00:38:07--> 00:38:08

the competition

00:38:11--> 00:38:21

what the Katherine fill em when just loading up loads and herds of wealth when some of them love to have a lot of children, big family.

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

Allah says it is like a cloud

00:38:27--> 00:38:40

that is full of rain, and it crosses by farmers. Cofer also means farmers who plant things and cover it with soil. They love the clouds, they see it Wow, it's gonna bring us provision. It's gonna bring us well, it's going to bring us crops.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

And then the flowers grow.

00:38:45--> 00:38:46

They enjoy them for a bit.

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

But then sooner,

00:38:50--> 00:38:56

then you know it. The crops die and the flower goes. Now they're back where they started. They want more clouds.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

The world is like that.

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

You gather?

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

then it ends very quickly.

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

What's left What have you taken with you?

00:39:08--> 00:39:11

You don't have a second chance though. There's no second cloud that's going to come.

00:39:13--> 00:39:22

So why are we building up from here and thinking that we're going to live here forever? A lot. Isn't the Quran hold on a bit behind him?

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

Do you want me to tell you something that is better than that?

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

Little levena

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

beam

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

many paradises and gardens beneath which rivers flow

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

if the last thing losses, one mowing the lawn,

00:39:48--> 00:39:50

how you don't want to call and I love this

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

man

00:40:01--> 00:40:16

Whatever is with you here in this life young fed, it's got a parish, and whatever is with a law, that it will always be there. So which one do you want to work for? I was a story a bit funny. But it has a very strong moral in it.

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

There was

00:40:20--> 00:40:29

this man was a carpenter. And he built houses, right? For about 50 years of his life. After 50 years of his life, he wanted to retire.

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

So he comes up to his boss and says, Look, I've worked for you all this time, sadly, I have to retire and get back to my family. So the boss looks at him and says, You know what? I just want one request from you says, What is it? Can you build me one last house, just one more.

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

But I want you

00:40:47--> 00:40:48

to take care of this house.

00:40:50--> 00:40:56

Here's the finances, build the house that you feel needs to be built.

00:40:57--> 00:41:19

The man goes off, you know, retiring and thinking. Now my last job just wants to get it over and done with so instead he just goes and buys the cheap material instead of the quality material. You know, cuts corners, it makes things a little bit smaller foundation is not very strong. at just the normal house not worth much after he finished it, you know, just wants to retire and have his life.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

The boss comes back to him, looks at the house.

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

And it gives them the key to the front door.

00:41:27--> 00:41:32

He says to him, it was a present actually from me. This house is yours.

00:41:33--> 00:41:37

The guy looks think as if only I had known this before I would have built the best house ever.

00:41:40--> 00:41:44

So we live in this life. And we are building our houses in the hereafter.

00:41:45--> 00:41:49

What kind of house do you want to build for yourself? Just pass it by.

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

You want to build your house.

00:41:52--> 00:42:22

We know the holidays we can start off with about massages, or salsa and tells us number 19 de Mesquita, vanilla hula waiting for the gentleman who has a bill for the sake of Allah I must in this life allowable for him or her house or Palace in general. I would like to say more than that we have many massages and hamdulillah there's a lot of them. When I hear Majid, I think Oh God, another Arabic hobo that goes on for an hour, another Turkish hook that goes on for two hours for an hour. And then someone else coming to say, Go to the back.

00:42:24--> 00:42:41

No, machines have a different kind of Sha one, similar to the way the processor built it originally. I don't mean by bricks and palm trees. I meant the work that is done in the type of work that is given out, especially for the youth

00:42:43--> 00:43:11

are also so long Allahu alayhi wa sallam said and this hadith is a Muslim, of a man, cleanliness is half of faith, while hamdulillah he said the word saying and Hamden led to the scale on the day of judgment was so panela he was so Pamela he will be handy he tamela Urbina center a lot of things have analog, and the 100 in libraries, which are a lot filled up what is between the heavens and the earth? Was Paula to know prayer his life

00:43:12--> 00:43:13

was photo photo book.

00:43:14--> 00:43:19

And charity is proof. What do you mean charity is proof?

00:43:21--> 00:43:23

proof of what you can answer me? Yes.

00:43:25--> 00:43:32

Well, so Dakota horahan. It is proof of your Eman. It is proof of your sincerity. We can all say Nayla, hey, Lala, a million times a day.

00:43:33--> 00:43:47

We can pray five times a day we can pray in a night we can do all that stuff. woman can wear hijab in the best way she can do any cause the man can grow his beard he can wear the miss work and all that all of this very easy. Anyone can do it. Step by shaders. That's all you got to do.

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

But

00:43:51--> 00:44:28

what is the proof of your image on the outside? It's easy. That's in front of people. But what about the inside? Well, if I told you that jealousy burns, good deeds, just like fire burns wood, which is a different process. Let me Muslim he says beware of jealousy for it burns wood for it burns good days, just like fire burns wood. I would say to you what the scholar said that thought aka charity, then bad deeds. The opposite Why? Because charity is actually opposite of jealousy and selfishness.

00:44:31--> 00:44:35

And when you donate, it burns your bad deed and he earns you good deeds.

00:44:37--> 00:44:48

And it's proof of your sincerity to Allah tala why because those are tenants that true amen is when you donate from that which you love the most and we love money the most. Why? You see, when you help someone,

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

do something in return, that person is not going to forget your favor.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

When you go to the masjid and you pray, you're benefiting yourself. You prayed you haven't given

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

really anything away? You fast but you're gonna eat at the end of the day, right? You do all these things you go to hygiene handling again your experience from it, but when you give away money it's not gonna come back. Isn't that right? You actually putting your hand into the pocket and you bring it you're giving it out. That's it's gone. It's gone physically.

00:45:20--> 00:45:30

But the one with three men knows that what is what they've actually done edit has actually been preserved. rosuvastatin is the love the shoulder of the lamb

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

was his most tender favorite mate.

00:45:35--> 00:45:46

And I knew that but sal Allahu Allah, he was the lead sallam, how much meat Did he ever have? They were months on the three months within, they couldn't smell any cooking of meat in his house. So it was because he was always thinking about the community.

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

One day someone donated

00:45:50--> 00:45:52

the shoulder of a lamp. And I showed their love and they

00:45:54--> 00:46:00

are actually a lamb sorry. And he said donate. So she donated it all except to the lamb shoulder.

00:46:02--> 00:46:16

And so Sam asked to come back to me know what is left. She said all of it is gone except for the shoulder it's lift or salsa Salim said to her. All of that has remained except for the shoulder of the land it has gone

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

because they're gonna eat it. That was you've taken your reward for it.

00:46:22--> 00:46:25

The rest of it stays why Allah subhanaw taala says

00:46:27--> 00:46:32

this area when I first read it, it made me cry a lot of folks compassionately toward a thing

00:46:34--> 00:46:35

is sort of lady
