00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Salam Alaikum warahmatullah

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

before I begin, this rain reminded me of a joke. There was a

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

in Arabia there's a hajah we call him hajah or j and he was starting to rain and his neighbor.

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

He says to him,

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

Why are you running away from the rain?

00:00:24--> 00:00:33

Isn't it Allah blessing you should stay under the rain get the last blessing. And he just said to him, I don't want to step on the last blessing.

00:00:34--> 00:00:38

If you know the joke that you can laugh if you didn't get it, that's fine. You can laugh at me

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

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim

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

in Al hamdu lillahi Animoto, who want to start you know who want to start?

00:00:50--> 00:00:57

When we learn him inshallah and fusina will say, Amen ma de la Fela mo de La La MaMa you Yulin fella de Allah.

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

shadow Ana Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Omen, sir all energy Li oma Deen

00:01:12--> 00:01:27

I'm about to find out stoeckel howdy Chiquita Bella Hayden howdy howdy Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are shallow Morimoto said to her akula modesetting he had a Dini beta aku livedata and Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Timothy now

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

All praise is due to Allah, the Almighty.

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

We praise Him and seek refuge in Him.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

And we seek refuge from the Shaitaan and from the evil of ourselves

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

and from the evil of our actions, whenever Allah guides,

00:01:52--> 00:02:00

no one can mislead them. And remember Allah subhanho wa Taala lets to be misled. No one can guide them.

00:02:01--> 00:02:19

And I bear witness that there is only one God Allah worthy of worship, and that Mohammed Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger and Prophet, mais prayers and blessings beyond to him and to his family, and unto his companions and all of those who follow him in righteousness to the last hour.

00:02:20--> 00:02:25

As to what follows the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did say,

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

the worst of all matters are the matters that are newly invented, and made part of this religion. Any matter which is newly invented and made as part of this religion, which did not belong to it at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is an innovation and every innovation into this Deen is the wrong path. And every wrong path leads to hellfire. My brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam, alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Once again, Allah has willed it that we meet together here.

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

In this blessing evening, in which I asked Allah subhanahu Wata Allah

00:03:12--> 00:03:22

to grant us His mercy and blessings and reward us and reward you for your intentions. I am Allah He impressed and pleased that

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

regardless

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

of the intense weather tonight

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

you made the effort and the Jihad to come here.

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

May Allah subhanho wa Taala reward you and make your life successful.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

For your great intentions

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

in a broken filler,

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

I love you in the course of Allah.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

You have chosen to come here tonight.

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

Even though

00:03:56--> 00:04:07

I know of many people back in Australia, who would probably have resorted to stay back at home tonight and just get this lecture later on on the DVD.

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

Alhamdulillah I have come to Sri Lanka not to know

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

a Muslim people who are lazy you are not lazy people inshallah.

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

And a lot of the times A lot of you have asked me to make dua for you.

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

And I don't think I've been anywhere

00:04:28--> 00:04:33

where I've met so many people have asked me to make up for them.

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

First of all, may Allah Subhana Allah reward you for assuming so highly of me.

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

But as Allah is my witness, and Allah knows best.

00:04:46--> 00:04:57

He is the only one who knows who is better than anyone else. I may have impressed you with my manner of speech with my ability to speak well.

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

I might have been

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

Question with the smiles that I have, or the look that I have on the outside.

00:05:06--> 00:05:10

But only Allah knows that maybe you are far better than me.

00:05:12--> 00:05:17

And Allah knows that it could be that I am the one who needs your dog more than what you need my dog.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

Allah The Allahu anhu

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

used to say when he was praised, Oh Allah

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

do not hold me accountable for the praises they give me.

00:05:32--> 00:05:37

And I asked you to forgive me from the secrets which they do not know about me.

00:05:38--> 00:05:42

And I asked you to make me better than what they think of me.

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

So I asked Allah this

00:05:46--> 00:06:04

Imam Ahmed as well. Mr. Mohammed Mohammed Rahmatullah. I was approached by a man whose mother was very ill and she was crippled, she couldn't walk. So he went to him and said to him, yeah, he Ma'am, please make diet for my mother to cure her.

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

Mm hmm. It was disappointed. He said to him, I am disappointed. What makes you think

00:06:13--> 00:06:18

that my dog is more important than yours? What makes you think that I don't need your dog.

00:06:20--> 00:06:30

So the men thought that mmm he doesn't want to make that he left. But when he reached his home, he found his mother she had been cured and walking. Mm hmm. That made

00:06:32--> 00:06:37

that the point of that is how do I know I need your diet more than what you need mine.

00:06:38--> 00:06:46

So I asked Allah subhanaw taala first to accept your diet and secondly, you do not forget me in your heart brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

Our topic tonight

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

and this is our last lecture. Sadly. I will miss you.

00:06:57--> 00:07:02

Tonight is dedicated to the youth of Islam.

00:07:04--> 00:07:19

Tonight is a dedication for the young hearts. The strength, the backbone, the heart of this oma. They are the heart of this oma and the backbone of this oma. They are the strength of this oma

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

Allah He they are the ones deserving of our attention.

00:07:26--> 00:08:18

They are the emblems of this oma the ones whom Allah subhanaw taala has placed this Deen on their shoulders. The future of this oma the young people, the youth among our brothers, and the youth among our sisters, and Willa him from Allah He, I do not make any preference of the brothers, young brothers, to our young sisters, nor do I not make preference to our young sisters to our young brothers. You are equally important to Allah, He loves him. Our young brothers cannot go forward without our young sisters. And our young sisters cannot go forward without our young brothers. And equally, I do not isolate the elders, for our elders, our our, our elders are our wisdom. And you

00:08:18--> 00:08:42

are our guide light. You have the experience my brothers and sisters, our elders I'm talking to and our youth have the energy. All of us, we make one body we make one oma and we all need each other. like a jigsaw puzzle. Each one has its different shape. But when you put it together, it makes a beautiful outcome, a full body. We are a body.

00:08:43--> 00:08:53

My brothers and sisters in Islam, and especially the young ones. May I begin by asking whoever is under the age of 14 please put your hand up.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Masha Allah,

00:08:56--> 00:09:06

Allahu Akbar, Masha Allah. I wish if the camera could have taken a little bit of a shot of that, can I ask the people under 40? Can you people under 40 please put your hand up.

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

We only have the men here to see and I'm sure a lot of our sisters up there.

00:09:12--> 00:09:35

So you can see Masha Allah we have the zeal, this energy, who has come in this weather outside, not afraid of the lightning, not afraid of the thunder not afraid of being soaked. But as I have come here and hamdulillah and this is what I mean. The strength of this oma is in the young generation without belittling our older generation.

00:09:37--> 00:09:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala praises the young generation abroad. They're mentioned in the Quran in Surah Al Khattab Allah says in Psalm 50 M and o beyond being him was he didn't

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

beat him in

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

buena

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

dornie

00:10:15--> 00:10:20

Sha, Allah says they were truly young men.

00:10:21--> 00:10:30

They believed in their Lord with strength. And we gave them more strength in the men in their guidance by guiding them.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

And we strengthen their hearts

00:10:35--> 00:10:52

when they stood up in front of all odds, when they stood up in front of all odds, when I stood up in front of all those who oppose them in evil, and they said with strength and firmness, Our Lord is a law.

00:10:54--> 00:10:57

We will never call upon anyone beside him with him.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth.

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

We have said this with firmness.

00:11:07--> 00:11:15

These are the young men of the cave in Soraka. have, you know what I'm talking about brothers and sisters.

00:11:17--> 00:11:36

For Allah subhanho wa Taala. To mention, these young men, in Surah, Taka have to be recited on the tongues of every person to the last hour means that Allah subhanho wa Taala considers the youth of utmost most utmost importance.

00:11:38--> 00:11:57

Brothers and sisters, I kid you not. And I'm not saying this just to try and trick the young people thinking that the young minds are easily tricked. The young minds are not easily tricked. The young minds are full of firmness. All they need to do

00:11:58--> 00:12:02

is to find two things. They need to know

00:12:03--> 00:12:11

who is allowed to them, who is their Lord, how are they working for? Who is their role model? Who is their goal?

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

How are they serving?

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

Who and He is Allah subhana wa tada? And secondly,

00:12:20--> 00:13:08

who are your role models in life among the humans? And they are the prophets of Allah, the companions of the Prophets, and the first three generations after the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the Sahih Hadith in Bukhari, hiral, Karuna, corny, the best of all generations are my generation. So melody and I are Luna home, then the ones who follow them after that second generation, some melody and a Luna home, then the third generation after them, brothers and sisters, have you read about those three generations? Do you know what age group the majority of these three generations were, which the prophet SAW Selim is

00:13:08--> 00:13:49

praising so much, while law he more than 80% of the three generations, which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is talking about, did not exceed the age of 30 to 35 80% of them. And the majority of the companions, whom the prophets Allah wa sallam says they are the best of all generations. They are the ones who are around the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all of them, and the majority of them were under the age of 30. In fact, more than 50% of them were between the ages of 1515 and 25.

00:13:54--> 00:13:58

And he was a fan of nearly a man but the law one woman, sat

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

I can keep counting on an on, these will all use around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

once

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

a man Ireland came to Imam Malik are they Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Hanuman.

00:15:22--> 00:15:27

And he said to him, let us talk about regional Hadith,

00:15:28--> 00:15:32

the men of Hadith. You know, that means, right?

00:15:33--> 00:15:45

The Hadith that we quote, they are narrated by the noblest of the noblest of people who heard it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or heard it from the people who heard it from the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

And they were over 100,000

00:15:50--> 00:16:29

Mr. Malik said to him, leave that aside. Everybody talks about ruggero Hadees. There are so many of them, and most of them are young. You know why they were young? Because they had to have good memory. And we all know when you're younger, memory is better. Yes. We all agree, elders. We agree. I'm now 35 and I feel the my memory loss starting. So they are under 35 region more than 100,000 who brought us this Deen, Mr. Malik said leave alone, the men of Hadith. And let's sit down and talk about Nisa on Hadith. The women of Hadith.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

Everybody says regional Hardee's, what about yourself.

00:16:35--> 00:16:52

And he countered, just by sitting there, more than 10,000 of the women have Hadith with their lineage with their characteristics. He knew everything about them, they are in the books of a giraffe what a deal hardeen. They are the books which tell us about the narrators of Hadith.

00:16:54--> 00:17:02

So my brothers and sisters, I'm just making this point, emphasizing because we have sisters here Alhamdulillah and I want to include them.

00:17:03--> 00:17:10

I want them to know that they play a huge role in the success of this oma

00:17:11--> 00:17:16

let me add one more thing before I get into my topic and get the ball rolling, as they say.

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

Just a little bit more emphasis. I want to include our sisters among the young men

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

in this struggle in this in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do you know who is behind

00:17:30--> 00:17:42

the great imams Malik, Chef theory and Ahmed Mohammed, among many others. Do you know who are the great ones behind them? Do you know how they became the great imams of all time? After the Tabby?

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

It was their mother's DNA how old their mothers were.

00:17:49--> 00:18:02

They were not more than 30 years old. Do you know how old mmm his mother was when she subjected him to the education and knowledge. She was 18 years of age 18 she was a widow.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

widow.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

And she said to her son Ahmed,

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

learn the character.

00:18:13--> 00:18:20

Learn the adverb of your teacher before you learn his knowledge. Mr. Malik, his mother was below 30

00:18:22--> 00:18:35

when she took him herself to the masjid nabawi and she chose for him his teacher arrabiata right. Mr. Malik was 10 years old. How old was he? 10.

00:18:38--> 00:18:45

And he had memorized the Quran. And she said to him learn from Arabia his character before you learn his knowledge.

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

She was the inspiration. Do you know what Mr. Malik wanted to become before he became a scholar?

00:18:54--> 00:18:59

And scholar is a understatement. Before he became allameh

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

an emblem of knowledge. He wanted to become a singer

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

in order to become a singer.

00:19:09--> 00:19:12

Because he had a nice voice, and he used to sing.

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

So he and he was very good looking.

00:19:18--> 00:19:48

He came to his mother. And his mother said to him, son, you want to become a singer. That's fine. But let me warn you about something. I want to inform you how young women had the they were the they were the drive. The turning point of these great demands. She said to him, if you want to become a singer, that's good. But there's a problem. Singing comes with good looks, and you don't have it.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

And that deterred him away from that to become Mr. Malik as we know him. A member shaffir his mother and

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

At the age of 30,

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

she took him from Makkah

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

and sent him to Medina.

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

To learn off the great Imam Malik.

00:20:13--> 00:20:17

She taught him the Quran at the age of seven, memorize the role.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

And he memorized al motha for Imam Malik at the age of 10, or 12.

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

And he was a poet at the age of 11.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

He she was his inspiration as well.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

So I want to include our sisters in this.

00:20:39--> 00:20:44

And I want the young men to understand that when you get married insha Allah

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

to take good care of your wives.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

Because what you are taking care of is not just a woman,

00:20:54--> 00:20:57

you are actually preparing a generation to come.

00:21:00--> 00:21:00

The mother,

00:21:01--> 00:21:07

as the poet in Arabic says, and omo madrasa tune either other,

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

urban, urban, Araki, the mother is an educational institution on her own.

00:21:16--> 00:21:32

She is a school, a university. If you look after her and prepare her, you would have prepared a whole generation to come of youth full of great character and morals, full of leadership.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

And, you know, we always complain

00:21:38--> 00:21:43

that women talk too much. Am I right? Yes.

00:21:44--> 00:21:58

There I asked the men to put their hands up if they agree with me. It's scientifically proven, I'll just give you that I'll save you. I can see some of the brothers afraid to put their hands up because they get caught on camera and their wives will see them upstairs, have to go back home and pay for it.

00:22:01--> 00:22:14

Okay, I'll give you your excuse from now inshallah, scientifically proven. It is the nature of women that they talk more than men. In fact, they make statistics that they talk about 24,000 words a day.

00:22:16--> 00:22:25

And men talk between 9000 to 14,000 on average. So that gives you when young brothers if you want to get married, I'm giving you a hint a head start inshallah.

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

You go and work and you come back home.

00:22:29--> 00:22:39

If you've already used up your 14,000 words, you still got another 10,000 to go You have to listen. And I'll give you some advice in sha Allah for the newly wedded ones inshallah.

00:22:43--> 00:22:51

So, why do they talk so much? There is a wisdom behind that. children, children,

00:22:53--> 00:23:08

it's not easy for them children under the age of 10. It's not easy for them to understand something very quickly. They need to be spoon fed. Do you agree with me, those of you who are parents, children needs to be spoon fed. So they require more words,

00:23:09--> 00:23:26

to explain things. me as a father, I know this. If I come to explain my son or daughter something, I can't be bothered to explain too much. I choose minimal words which have big meaning. And if he doesn't get it from the first or second time I get frustrated, I say go to your mother.

00:23:28--> 00:23:33

But the mother keeps going on and on and on and on and on and the child asks 1000 questions.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

I say, explain to him

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

I'll be the introduction. You'll be the body and then I'll be the conclusion.

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

Bring him when you want me to make a conclusion.

00:23:46--> 00:23:56

So in Hamdulillah, this is why let us not ridicule and look down upon them. You know what, please excuse me, I made this introduction including our sisters because

00:23:57--> 00:24:08

it is very, very important. It is vital. It is vital brothers, that our sisters are with us in this pathway in the course of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:10--> 00:24:19

and if it wasn't for people like women like eyeshadow, the Allah Juana and Khadija de la Juana, who were role models for not only women but for men.

00:24:20--> 00:24:41

You think this whole Deen would have reached us in its completeness that it did with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala eyeshadow the Allah one her. You know how many of the scholars she taught among the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? More than 1000 who narrated Hadith from Chateau de la Han.

00:24:42--> 00:24:51

If you recite you can Bukhari and Muslim Timothy, you'll find how many Hadees narrated by Chateau de la in the hundreds and these woman who heard them from her.

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

If we do not include them, then how can we be a civilization

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

the West

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

The West, the Western world after World War One, they wanted to change the woman from a woman who raises the children from a woman who is educated and uses education in the pathway of her children to make her a commodity. And that is she has education, to use it in the outside world, to benefit big businessmen and entrepreneurs in the world of capitalism. So now they true that in the West, they draw the woman from being a wife, a mother, from being a person of education, and if she is a person of education, they take her out of the home, to neglect the children, in order to use her energy to build the outside world for the men. This is a trick my brothers and sisters, I encourage

00:25:51--> 00:26:06

our sisters and our brothers, to become educated, but to be careful what kinds of knowledge they learn. At the same time, where will you? Where will you use this education? Where will you use your skills, the best place to use them is in your family.

00:26:07--> 00:26:22

And the best place to use them with you is within your community. And I say to my sisters, the best good that you can ever do with your education, with your skills, with your energy, with the power which Allah has given you, is to raise a human being

00:26:24--> 00:27:06

to raise a human being, not to raise skyscrapers, raise a human being. And the fathers, the brothers are the protection. They're the defense. They're the maintainers. They're the caretakers, they're the ones who monitor and maintain this woman, these children, this family, this household, we as men, if you like, if you want me to put it in simple words, we are the external affairs and the women. Our sisters are the internal affairs they produce, we provide the means the men provide the mains and bring in and the women produce and watch what they can produce. Mashallah, if you give her that opportunity.

00:27:09--> 00:27:16

I am surprised and I'm sorry for saying this if it may offend some people, but I say it from the bottom of my heart.

00:27:17--> 00:27:36

In Australia, there are times where I go places to give lectures or gurus and I'm disappointed that our sisters are not included. So we see beautiful we see young men Masha Allah, but my brothers, we cannot do that our sisters

00:27:37--> 00:27:42

because the mothers spend more times than the fathers with their children at home.

00:27:44--> 00:27:59

And we want educated sisters in Islam, and even in secular education to a certain extent Hillel education in the proper way, of course in the halal way.

00:28:01--> 00:28:16

And I'd rather my wife be the one who teaches my children, then my children learning it from the TV, or from the internet, or from their friends who I don't know, or from teachers who I don't know what their religious background is. And I don't know what their passion is, and I don't know what their agenda is.

00:28:17--> 00:28:22

Don't you agree with me, that you want your children to be raised in that inshallah.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

The youth of Islam

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

one of the greatest stories

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

one of the greatest role models of the youth that comes to us in the Quran

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

is the Prophet use of alayhis salaam.

00:28:45--> 00:28:50

Prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salaam, has a whole surah dedicated to him.

00:28:52--> 00:28:57

This shows us how important the young use of Allah His Selim is to the youth.

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

When Allah spent Allah speaks about the story of use of alayhis salaam,

00:29:05--> 00:29:13

in the whole of the surah, he focuses tapana, he focuses our attention on a particular segment of his life.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

The segment of his life, which the whole of the sort of use of focuses on

00:29:21--> 00:29:25

is the life of his youth, the life of his youth,

00:29:27--> 00:29:32

to the point where he where we hear about his father and mother coming to the throne when he was

00:29:33--> 00:29:38

almost the king and they bow to him. And the story ends there.

00:29:39--> 00:29:56

He was under the age of 40 years. And all that story in between, was from when he was about seven or eight. And most of it focuses on when he was between the ages of 1617 till about 30 years of age.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

That whole sort of focuses on that time.

00:30:01--> 00:30:08

So I urge my young brothers and sisters, to read sort of use of and to understand that over and over and over again.

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

Allah gives us a lesson for the youth.

00:30:13--> 00:30:21

Allah tells us about use of Allah He said in the beginning, or lm ban Allah should demo

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

worker then he can edges in mosinee.

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

And when Yusuf Alayhi Salaam reached

00:30:37--> 00:30:44

his adolescence, his strong youth, we gave him immediately Hickman

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

wisdom and knowledge.

00:30:49--> 00:30:54

Listen carefully brothers and sisters, we gave him wisdom and knowledge.

00:30:55--> 00:30:58

There is a difference between wisdom and knowledge.

00:31:01--> 00:31:02

You can go to university,

00:31:04--> 00:31:16

you can learn so much information. You can get your masters and doctrines in information. In knowledge, you can write books and books and books.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

But knowledge without wisdom is nothing.

00:31:21--> 00:31:21

Nothing

00:31:22--> 00:31:30

and wisdom cannot be learned or taught at school. Wisdom is learned through training.

00:31:32--> 00:31:37

Wisdom is morals, values, character added.

00:31:38--> 00:31:45

Just like the mothers of these great four imams taught them. They said learn the added from your teacher before you learn his knowledge.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

We hear about

00:31:49--> 00:31:57

many people who have lots of knowledge. But they are criminals. What are they? criminals.

00:31:58--> 00:32:07

They are con artists, con artists, like people who hack into security systems on the computer.

00:32:08--> 00:32:14

Their brains, they call them nerds, but they are called criminal nerds cool nerds.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

They have a lot of information.

00:32:18--> 00:32:24

Remarkable knowledge. They are hackers, con artists, thieves, they have lots of knowledge.

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

But they have no wisdom.

00:32:29--> 00:32:36

So the first thing among the youth, which Allah subhanaw taala brings our attention to is wisdom.

00:32:38--> 00:32:49

And then knowledge. In fact, he put wisdom before knowledge when he said Tina hookman Weidman, we gave use of wisdom and knowledge. So wisdom came before knowledge.

00:32:52--> 00:32:58

Wisdom is when you are able to communicate with someone and bring a change.

00:32:59--> 00:33:13

Wisdom is when there is a conflict between two people, you are able to reconcile between them with a few words. Wisdom is when someone opposes you with an idea or a view

00:33:15--> 00:33:30

you are able to win their hearts and their minds with a few words with a few characteristics. Wisdom is when you are able to transform an enemy into an ally.

00:33:31--> 00:33:48

Wisdom is when you are able to make someone who hates you, love you, or respect you without even working hard for it without needing to go into a group of of some sort, or a gang of some sort.

00:33:49--> 00:34:01

Wisdom as when you are able to have an elderly person, listen to your words, without the elderly person feeling that he is he or she is being disrespected by you.

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

This is wisdom, being able to say what to say at the right time.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

And not just saying everything in anything.

00:34:14--> 00:34:15

The opposite of wisdom

00:34:17--> 00:34:28

is going on the internet. The opposite of wisdom is going on the internet and creating for yourself a username. So no one knows who you are

00:34:30--> 00:34:39

and the profile of some sort. And then cutting and pasting pieces of information from different sources

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

and making fatwas left right and center.

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

And you don't even know what you are saying.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Because easy to cut and paste. And because you're hiding behind the username. It's easy for you to speak and talk and throw things without thinking about the ramifications.

00:35:01--> 00:35:05

And this is done so often on the internet.

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

We are going to address these issues tonight inshallah.

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

attina hockman. While we gave him wisdom and knowledge, what happened to him, then Allah. Immediately after that he mentioned something

00:35:25--> 00:35:48

he says, work early can adjust in my scene and this is how we reward the good doers. A young person cannot receive wisdom and knowledge without doing good in his community or her community without doing good in their family without exerting sn Mohsen literally means someone who works

00:35:50--> 00:36:11

with the consciousness, as if as if he can see Allah. But although you cannot see Allah you know that a look and see you sang, and taboo de la haka and Nikita ra for Atlanta. contura who are in Iraq, to worship Allah as if you can see him but although you cannot see him you know that he sees you.

00:36:13--> 00:36:29

It is amazing. how Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions about use of Allah is Salaam, a should the when he was 1718 years old, saying we gave him wisdom and knowledge and the reason why we gave him wisdom and knowledge is because he is among the people who are missing in sand.

00:36:31--> 00:36:37

he worships Allah as if he can see him although he cannot see him he knows that a look and see you so

00:36:40--> 00:37:09

many young people asked me they said how can I increase my Eman? How can I stay away from heroin? Many parents they asked me they say my son my daughter they go into and they hide in their bedroom behind the computer and I don't know what they do. I don't know who their friends are. They learn certain tricks. You know, I come into the bedroom and suddenly this screen changes I don't know what they did. With this new technology. I don't know how to use it. They know how to hide things. And I think that and then they change the page like this

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

to a website about Islam. For example.

00:37:17--> 00:37:28

Or a website one brother said to me because I entered the bedroom and suddenly my daughter change the screen with flipped like that flip because I've never lived this. I never knew that a screen can be flipped like that without doing this.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

It just flips

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

and what was it

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

how to be a respectful daughter

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

so Pinilla

00:37:43--> 00:37:48

Susan know what to do? What do I do brother? I say to them,

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

sadly you are limited.

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

There's only so much a parent can do.

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

The reality is you cannot watch them 24 seven

00:38:03--> 00:38:08

but when you can instill in our children something from a very young age

00:38:09--> 00:38:36

that although I cannot see you 24 seven, your mother cannot see you 24 seven, there is someone who sees you. Not only 24 seven, but also knows you better than what you know yourself and is closer to you than your own juggler vein in his knowledge. He knows what you are feeling. He knows what you are thinking. He knows what you are planning. He knows the things that you are going to plan before you plan them.

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

He is a loss of planner.

00:38:40--> 00:39:00

And he has placed two angels one on the right one on the left are Cuban partid they are watching every move merlion filming tolling Illa De Niro ki bonati it not a single word does he or she utter

00:39:01--> 00:39:12

whisper except that there are two angels, two watches and witnesses writing every single word, every single letter.

00:39:17--> 00:39:32

So there is a watcher over you. And the young people need to understand that the thing which prevented use of alayhis salam from him is that he had a son that he knew that Allah watches him all the time. maraca to LA

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

you know the story of a young boy named

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

I think his name was Sohail.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

He was only seven or eight years old. I think it was a tablet tablet.

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

And he went to the masjid where they used to get knowledge of the Imam.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

The Imam noticed in this young boy an extreme intelligence so

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

One day, he gave him extra attention. So the parents started to complain. How can you give this Sohail better attention, and it says that he gave them each one of them a bird. And he said to them, go and let this bird free. But you have to go to a place where no one can see you. You know, tell these stories to your children, then they make sense to them. And everybody went after a few moments the children came back except for Sohail at sunset so he came back and the bird was still with him and he was crying. And the Imam said, Why are you crying? And why is the bird still with you? He said, Yeah, amen. My uncle taught me some words and they don't leave me alone who share Hindi Allah

00:40:47--> 00:40:53

now Vidya Allahu Allah watches me, Allah is my witness. Allah is with me wherever I go.

00:40:54--> 00:41:19

And you said, Let this bird go where no one can see me. I went everywhere. I went up the tree, I hid behind things. I went behind the rock. I went everywhere, but everywhere I went, I knew that Allah is watching me seeing him and he's with me. So how can you ask me to tell it this bird go, I brought it back. And so he let it go afterwards. Young Children need to have this instilled in them, that Allah watches you and is with you, wherever you are, he is with you in his knowledge wherever you are.

00:41:21--> 00:41:29

And if the fear of Allah is not instilled in youth, then my brothers and sisters, it is very difficult, very difficult to stay away from home.

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

The youth need to have this fear of Allah.

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

Allah says, what all whether at home or at

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

work or let

00:41:47--> 00:42:03

the woman that was looking after use of Elisa Lam, she was the wife of the Aziz a financial he was the person in charge of the finances of Egypt. She was very beautiful. She was young, and she was very popular.

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

She was rich, and she had power.

00:42:08--> 00:42:17

Yusuf Ali salam, on the other hand, he was extremely beautiful, extremely attractive, beyond measure.

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

He was young,

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

strong.

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

And he was a slave.

00:42:26--> 00:43:14

He was unknown. He was hardly seen he was hidden. So he had nothing to fear. He didn't fear about his reputation, he had no reputation. He didn't fear that people will watch him. He was not watched. He didn't fear that he will be imprisoned because the woman had power to keep him away from prison. He was inside the house. So no one's was watching him. He had this woman come into the room, and she locked the door. And she said to him, Do as you please with me. Do as you please with me. So he had the opportunity with a young woman full of power, full of richness. And there was no reputation to be worried about he was a slave that even if people did find out that he had committed Zina, within

00:43:14--> 00:43:28

less than a year to be law, no one would care. He's a slave. In fact, Mr. Abdul Aziz, she has more to lose because he is a slave. And she is a noble woman, how would a noble woman, you know this, seduce a slave?

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

He had all the opportunity, brothers and sisters,

00:43:33--> 00:43:44

more opportunity than any one of you could ever have. And in fact, he had nothing to fear nothing, nothing, nothing to lose every opportunity to commit an act of harm.

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

But there was only one thing which prevented him.

00:43:50--> 00:43:51

Who knows what that is?

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

What was it that he feared,

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

called Mr. The law? Why, what does that mean? He said, Garland

00:44:03--> 00:44:14

law, he said, I seek refuge with Allah. That was the only thing that prevented him the fear of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah says, what

00:44:26--> 00:44:29

she wanted and desired,

00:44:31--> 00:44:42

to do something haram with him, and new, so almost desired, if he had not seen the sign of his Lord, meaning if he had not known his Lord Allah.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

So he was a human being. And Allah tells us if he didn't if it wasn't that he knew his Lord and feared his Lord. He would have like any other youth, fallen prey to this woman and committed Zina with her. Allah says, well, him, maybe her he desired her

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

If only he hadn't known Allah meaning he didn't desire her. It's like saying this.

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

You know?

00:45:09--> 00:45:15

He fell on the ground. If it hadn't been for me to stop him.

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

Did he fall?

00:45:18--> 00:45:28

No. But I use that expression meaning that he was definitely going to fall if I wasn't there. So Allah is saying use of would have definitely

00:45:29--> 00:45:47

been seduced and responded to it. If he hadn't remembered if you hadn't known Allah and had his fear from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for young people, we have to entrench in their hearts from a young age Maracaibo to law, the watchfulness of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the only thing really that stops them.

00:45:49--> 00:46:18

So use of Allah His Salaam, he was seduced and the women and she even chased him and you know the story the women of Medina, they said, well, what's this? She is seducing her slave. She's gone crazy. So she brought them and she gave them fruit to cut and to eat. And then she asked us to valet set them to come out in front of them. They thought he was a slave that looks like any other slave, but when they saw him a burner who they said whoa, what great man he is.

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

A Kabbalah Whoa,

00:46:22--> 00:46:54

whoa, Katana a dia hoon. And they didn't even realize that they were repeatedly cutting their hands over and over again, because they were hypnotized by his looks, while calling her Shelly lahemaa Hara Bashar. They said, Whoa, Glory be to God. This man is not a human being. But he is an angel. And then they noticed that they were cutting their hands with the knives. Katana means they recorded repeatedly, not once, not twice more than three times over

00:46:55--> 00:47:02

of his beauty. Brothers and sisters, what are we compared to use of a salon? Allah brings him as a role model for you.

00:47:03--> 00:47:14

Here every opportunity, and what she said was one of Morocco, ladies gentlemen, and if he doesn't do what I am telling him, I'm going to imprison him and he's going to be humiliated.

00:47:16--> 00:47:21

On top of that, what did you do? He went in the middle of the night

00:47:22--> 00:47:29

and he called upon the last panel who at the island he cried. And he said gone out on

00:47:34--> 00:47:39

their own any what

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

else boy, la

00:47:47--> 00:47:58

manana J. Heaney. He said, Oh, my Lord, the prison, the dungeon, the darkness of the dungeon. The humiliation of the dungeon is more beloved to my heart

00:47:59--> 00:48:02

than what they are calling me to do. Who loves the dungeon?

00:48:05--> 00:48:07

Use very seldom does not love the dungeon.

00:48:08--> 00:48:12

But this circumstance made him love the dungeon.

00:48:13--> 00:48:20

He had two ways out, commit Zina or dungeon. Suddenly the dungeon became his beloved.

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

Do you understand what I'm saying?

00:48:25--> 00:48:29

The dungeon is not a beloved of anyone. In fact, a Muslim should never wish to be in a dungeon. This is humiliation.

00:48:30--> 00:48:33

But what is greater humiliation, Xena,

00:48:35--> 00:48:36

and hellfire.

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

The Dungeon of the of the noun of the Hellfire or the Dungeon of the dunya

00:48:42--> 00:48:52

the Dungeon of the dunya suddenly becomes your safe haven, your beloved like going back to your home and sleeping in your beautiful bed in your pillow.

00:48:54--> 00:48:59

A signal a hub boo la mayor de una de la is more beloved to me than what they are calling me to.

00:49:01--> 00:49:04

Allah says

00:49:05--> 00:49:09

festa Jenna Bella hora, Bo, his Lord responded to him.

00:49:11--> 00:49:19

In the hall, a semi Alani. He hears all people, he is all knowledgeable. And what are we talking about? We're talking about here, like

00:49:22--> 00:49:31

a man used by semi young men is calling upon a las pantalla saying, Please help me My Lord. And the last man is saying to him, I will help you. I will make you go into the prison.

00:49:33--> 00:49:45

And he is saying thank you, My Lord, which young people are like that today. He is the ideal role model. He entered the prison and Allah subhanaw taala in the end, made him a king.

00:49:48--> 00:49:50

If we go down that pathway,

00:49:51--> 00:49:57

we become humiliated. If we lift ourselves away from that we become kings.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

That's how I lost my diary.

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

So my young brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:50:04--> 00:50:11

take a lesson from Yusuf alehissalaam and be kings. Don't be humiliated slaves.

00:50:17--> 00:50:19

Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

yeah, it is a man on Allah Almighty.

00:50:25--> 00:50:28

El COVID de la de la COVID de la Gemma.

00:50:30--> 00:50:33

They shall come a time among my own man

00:50:35--> 00:50:38

where the person who is grasping onto his religion

00:50:40--> 00:50:44

is like a person grasping onto a coal from fire.

00:50:47--> 00:50:48

It's hard it is a Muslim.

00:50:52--> 00:50:54

When you hold on to a coal of fire,

00:50:55--> 00:50:57

is that easy or hard?

00:50:58--> 00:51:07

It's hard. Does it burn? It burns, but you're holding on to it? Why would a person hold on to a call of fire and burn?

00:51:09--> 00:51:10

There's only one reason

00:51:11--> 00:51:19

if there is an outcome that is more valuable than a state that you are in. And if you are running away from something,

00:51:20--> 00:51:22

something worse than the burning of your hand.

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

This is our time now.

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

We have so many

00:51:30--> 00:51:37

bombardments, trials fitten. fitna coming from every corner,

00:51:38--> 00:51:48

especially to our youth and the youth today, if they are grasping onto their Deen, it's like a person grasping onto a cold from fire,

00:51:49--> 00:51:53

or Susa. solamente further extends to describe this moment and he said,

00:51:55--> 00:52:33

the man on Fitton Kakuka Amina Layla muslimah they will be fitten trials and temptations. There will be so subtle, there'll be so dark, like the dark clouds in a moonless night. You don't even know them and they're hitting you. It's like in the darkness if you go outside now it's very dark. You cannot count how many clouds there are in the sky. The fitten the trials, the temptations that will be approaching us in this century that we are in a like a moonless night and you cannot count the clouds they are hitting you

00:52:34--> 00:52:37

used to be for rajulio min. And mc cafetera

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

in the morning,

00:52:41--> 00:53:01

they are believers and by the night. They have become disbelievers in the night. They are believers. What used to be okay Fira and in the morning, they have transformed to disbelievers bear or Dena whom be out of the minute dunya they would have sold their Deen for luxuries of this life.

00:53:03--> 00:53:09

And how true this statement from the promise of our settlement is as if he is living among us today and watching us.

00:53:11--> 00:53:15

We are living in a world and I can count them

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

or sum them up in three words. secularism,

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

materialism, and capitalism.

00:53:26--> 00:53:31

Go to Colombo, are we in Colombo now? Okay, stay in Colombo.

00:53:32--> 00:53:51

And just go around the corner. And you will see the most attractive buildings that stand out among all the buildings. And they are the landmark of Colombo. You know what I'm talking about? two buildings, two towers, the World Trade Center, what do they represent? What do they represent?

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

capitalism, money, wealth.

00:53:59--> 00:54:02

Go anywhere in the world. Every country has the two towers.

00:54:04--> 00:54:28

Every country has the World Trade Center. Even in the Muslim countries, everywhere Malaysia prides itself and when you look at it when I sat in KL, Allahu Akbar, the Twin Towers shined like the way the minarets of the harem shine you know when you're in the aeroplane you go to the harem to Medina or Mecca you see a shining like a diamond pearl in the middle of the desert. That's how the Twin Towers shine.

00:54:30--> 00:54:33

Billions of dollars. Why

00:54:34--> 00:54:44

if this is not the greatest example that we live in a world of capitalism with a strong consumes the week, then I don't know who I am.

00:54:46--> 00:54:47

materialism.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

Switch on the television, go on the internet. Read in any book, in fact, use don't read books anymore. And they don't even speak full sentences anymore.

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

They don't write full sentences anymore. They write you as in the letter you. They write OMG as in Oh my god,

00:55:08--> 00:55:12

the right things like brb Be right back.

00:55:14--> 00:55:24

And when they speak now, and I don't know how it is in Sri Lanka, but now in the Western world in Australia, when they speak, this is how they speak. They speak in in in letters.

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

LMA Oh,

00:55:30--> 00:55:33

you know what I'm talking about? Yeah. You know what I'm talking about?

00:55:36--> 00:56:00

young people. I was testing you there to see if you know what I'm saying. Now I know. Okay, all right. Because you know, I'm looking at all these faces. And I'm thinking, am I talking to the right audience? Do I did talk about you know, go deeper. So now I know you know what I'm talking about. So panela, the Western world? The this this this? demoralisation? Is infantry infiltrated even everywhere, you know, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia everywhere.

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

So this is what it's become.

00:56:05--> 00:56:14

materialism. On television. You watch a movie? Let's say you watch a Hollywood movie. Okay, a movie that is okay. In shell.

00:56:15--> 00:56:16

A documentary.

00:56:17--> 00:56:21

How many commercials come during that two hour movie?

00:56:23--> 00:56:47

We get so annoyed by the commercials don't mean when the commercial comes on this day and age. One law, it seems that sometimes we get more attracted to the commercials than the movie that we are watching. And before you know it, like monkeys, sometimes we forget what we were watching. Because the commercials, the advertisements and the way they make them to appeal to the young.

00:56:50--> 00:57:12

The older than the young, the teenagers, the elderly, the men, the women have all sorts of shapes and sizes, all shapes and sizes. I watch this commercial ones about a better one. a better one man in the middle of the desert away from civilization. Various smart commercial. It shows this better one man wearing the attire that we wear.

00:57:13--> 00:57:20

You know, it's represented in the Muslim world beard on his camel. And he's got his prayer met.

00:57:22--> 00:57:41

He's got his dates, and he's traveling in the desert and you think I wonder where this man is going. He travels and travels and travels. He stops and praises solid. Then he eats his dates. Then he travels and travel showing a real ideal Muslim of all humbleness, you think is on a pilgrimage like going to Mecca.

00:57:42--> 00:57:43

Beautiful.

00:57:44--> 00:57:59

He goes and he arrives in Makkah. He does his tawaf religious man, you know, really representing Muslims in a beautiful way. Then he hops out of the harem. He's hungry. And then he sees a bright light. A big M

00:58:05--> 00:58:06

very smart.

00:58:07--> 00:58:24

You know, a better one watches this and I'll say his head. What is this in is better, one better one language. And he will become appeal to it because he's representing his culture. Very smart commercials. How they appeal and the timing in the morning.

00:58:26--> 00:58:29

8am 9am just before the children are going to school.

00:58:30--> 00:58:39

They put the best of cartoons. I don't know what you have here. But we have ABC kids, and I don't know what. And then they introduced the little commercials little gadgets,

00:58:40--> 00:59:20

such as that thing called beyblades. Now, I don't know if you've heard of it. beyblades and they make a song to it. And they I even got caught in it. So Pamela I didn't know what beyblades is. Then I discovered yesterday. It represents star signs. Star signs give it names like Virgo and Aquarius and I don't know what Allahu Akbar how subtle it was, how subtle it is. Then your child grows up a little bit more. And the commercials are catering for them. Right. The best commercials for the teenagers are in the evening five 6am 6pm 7pm we have things like Home and Away back in Australia and neighbors and what do you call it? These are like sitcoms, they're just all the time. And we

00:59:20--> 00:59:40

have things like dancing with the stars. Do you have that here? Dancing with the Stars? You So You Think You Can Dance? Things like American Idol, Australian Idol? Do you have Sri Lankan idol? Do you have that here? Do you know what I'm talking about? It's about young people, young people showing their talent in singing and dancing and so on.

00:59:43--> 00:59:48

Australia's got talent, this is what we have over there. Do you have something like that in Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka has talent.

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

And the point is, it doesn't matter about the name, but it's about bringing young people out there and showing their talent. It's good. It's good encouraging young people to show their talent but

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

Look what happens.

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

It shows

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

the pop culture.

01:00:08--> 01:00:17

It shows young girls dressed in a particular way, young men dressed in a particular way. And the hosts who are judging them, you should see the types of things they say.

01:00:19--> 01:00:48

I remember one of them, this student showed me, they brought they always bring, you know, two men and one celebrity woman, or a man or whatever, but the woman's always usually attractive. She's sitting there blonde woman, and she sees two young people come up. I think it's extreme fat factor or something like that. And they're, you know, they're good look good looking. They're young, two men, one's blonde, one's brunette, you know, men, and she asks them, how old are you? One of them says 19. The other one says 20. She says, perfect.

01:00:50--> 01:00:55

And everybody's laughing and she's looking at acting cute. Perfect. You know what she's talking about? Right?

01:00:57--> 01:01:20

Allahu Akbar. Where's the shame? And this materialistic? Well, I remember in one called Australian Idol. It's about young people coming in singing, right? One man, a one. One girl. She had a beautiful voice right in there, which, you know, was a young man, he had a beautiful voice in there. And after listening to them, everybody was amazed by his voice. No music, by the way, so you don't think

01:01:22--> 01:01:33

I'm listening to music. It was testing the voice. So the young man is seeing and they love this voice. They said 10 out of 10 for your voice. But there's one problem.

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

You got to lose the weight.

01:01:36--> 01:02:01

You got to change your dress style. Your hairstyle is not right. And I'm thinking what's that got to do with it? Then I noticed advertising this designer clothes, they have to dress in a certain way. The next time he came around, he had his hair up like that in a bizarre style. singlet right still the you know, still overweight and after start losing weight, and they would not pass them until they had the look

01:02:02--> 01:02:12

that they have to look tight clothing revealing the moves have to be right. All about an excuse me for saying this. And I'm in the masjid. But about you know,

01:02:14--> 01:02:18

body attraction and the likes. Anything that ends you up in the bed.

01:02:20--> 01:02:22

It makes our children look at this shopping.

01:02:24--> 01:02:30

And it makes them feel that what they see on television, these gadgets.

01:02:32--> 01:02:43

They don't just want it. They make them think that they need it. They need it so that the children grow up with an attitude towards their parents saying to them

01:02:44--> 01:02:59

it's not fair. How come my friend has a mobile phone? You and the father and mother says but we bought you a mobile phone and said, Well, this is an old mobile phone. My friend has got the new iPhone. I need the new iPhone. I need it. I need it. You don't care. You don't love me, you hate me.

01:03:01--> 01:03:06

And they start to fight over these little things. And they keep bombarding us with materialism.

01:03:07--> 01:03:17

And then the mother comes along and they begin to advertise to and the father and so on the world of materialism, busying us busying us with these little gadgets and these phony things.

01:03:18--> 01:03:19

Then we have secularism

01:03:21--> 01:03:29

after World War One, young brothers and sisters after World War One, what do you think it was about? It was about the fall of the NAFTA.

01:03:30--> 01:03:33

It was the last of the of the empire of Islam

01:03:34--> 01:04:10

and the empire of Islam united the Muslims. But unfortunately, the Muslims in positions began to become materialistic. They love the positions, they love the the luxury, the money, the wealth, and this was our weakness. So we divided and in our weakness, right at that time, they came in, and they destroyed us so easily. One of the ways they destroyed us was that they made the Turks the Turkish people who were the Ottoman Empire, and the Arabs turn against each other.

01:04:12--> 01:04:36

One of the stories says that they went to the Arabs in the in their lands, and they said to them, how can you let Turkish people foreigners govern you and they take over the philosopher, when you are the Arabs and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam your properties in Arabic, no Quranic Arabic, aren't you ashamed of yourselves? They bought it. They took it. And what happened was in one instant,

01:04:37--> 01:04:59

the Arabs chased and had a fight with the Turks, and some of them, cornered them at the Kaaba, in the harem. And Turkish people holding on to the rains, the ropes of the Kaaba, saying, We seek refuge By Allah, and they chop their arms off. These people who were turned away from Islam, which created a warfare

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

The Grudge of nationalistic grudge between the Turks and the Arabs until today, except for the religious ones inshallah.

01:05:09--> 01:05:13

And in Turkey, they changed it, this was the heart of the Ottoman Empire was they brought in

01:05:15--> 01:05:54

secularist ideas. Among them was Ataturk, Ataturk coming the name of nationalism, building Turkey, but with a flag and isolating Islam, he changed the Quran from being recited in Arabic to being recited in Turkish. And the Quran was placed in the museum in glass where people looked at it. So the Quran became a decoration, a symbol, not something which you read to understand and apply, but rather a symbol. And truly they succeeded in that. Today, we see young youth being an even elderly.

01:05:56--> 01:06:09

I don't know about Sri Lanka, but over there we were, come from, you know, young people, they don't read the Quran, they don't know what it is, you know what they do, they bring the Quran, and they place it in their car. And it's this small,

01:06:11--> 01:06:14

can't read it. And it's decorated with a zip.

01:06:16--> 01:06:19

And they put it underneath the cassette recorder or the CD.

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

And in the CD, it's stacked up with what

01:06:23--> 01:06:28

Jay Z and Rihanna and people like

01:06:31--> 01:06:49

upon an abomination, Gaga, Lady Gaga, Google all those other well I used to be now I don't even want to mention the names and when the messages so panela these people are an abomination. And they're playing it and the Quran is down there. And I asked them what do you have the Quran in your car? This is a good good thing. And I say oh, this is protection.

01:06:52--> 01:06:53

protection?

01:06:57--> 01:06:59

Did Allah send down the Quran on paper?

01:07:00--> 01:07:06

Or in words? And there are law say in the answer now who are an Arabian

01:07:08--> 01:07:14

we have sent this grant down Arabic so that you can just hang it up and place it in your cars no

01:07:15--> 01:07:20

noon, so that you might understand. So the Quran is first to understand and apply.

01:07:21--> 01:07:27

So the secularism came in, they changed the then from Arabic to Turkish.

01:07:29--> 01:07:33

And Mohammed became Mehmet and Ahmed became a hermit.

01:07:35--> 01:07:57

And then the other worlds Muslim worlds like in. In the other worlds, the Arabic was lost when the nfo was there. The 30 spoke Arabic, the Arabs spoke Arabic, the Indian spoke Arabic and Sri Lankans existed them but your origins you spoke Arabic When you spoke Arabic look at your names of Allah. Three quarters of your names that I hear come from Arabic origins.

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

The English Muslims spoke Arabic, you know amendment Buhari. He wasn't an Arab. He's from billet Bukhara up in Russia.

01:08:09--> 01:08:13

Mr. Muslim was not an Arab. mm and he said he wasn't an Arab.

01:08:15--> 01:08:19

They went to Arabs, Imam Abu hanifa. His origin was Persian.

01:08:20--> 01:08:26

The spoke Arabic 90% of the map that we know of the past, they weren't Arabs.

01:08:30--> 01:08:33

Yet, look what they did. They took the names away.

01:08:34--> 01:08:37

And we don't even know how to put the names together anymore. Don't know what they mean.

01:08:40--> 01:08:41

secularism

01:08:42--> 01:08:45

separating state from religion.

01:08:47--> 01:08:57

To make you think, a youth that you can practice your religion, that's okay. But just like every other religion, it's practiced in certain places only

01:08:58--> 01:09:16

inside the mosque, inside the church, inside the monasteries, inside the temples, but outside different story. And so you see, really you know, in essence, you can see it, especially among the young people. They have two identities.

01:09:18--> 01:09:24

The first identity is blonde, and Fatima and the second identity is Billy and Jessica.

01:09:27--> 01:09:29

I don't know about Sri Lanka, but that's how it works in Australia.

01:09:31--> 01:09:35

They have the identity biller and with the cap

01:09:37--> 01:09:41

and identity outside DLL with the other cap on the side.

01:09:43--> 01:09:45

Fatima with a hijab

01:09:47--> 01:09:49

outside Fatima

01:09:53--> 01:10:00

I'm thinking of a brand name that rhymes with hijab. I can't think of it anyway outside different styles.

01:10:00--> 01:10:22

Type clothing, and so on and so forth. And the cap is not really only I mentioned the cap what i mean but it's just the symbol the cap is not really something that is everything in Islam mainly is the character and the and the eye and the identity. But what I mean by that is the identity is changed, the whole perception is changed.

01:10:23--> 01:10:35

embarrassed to show that in as though it's just inside. At work, I'm another person at home, I'm another person in the masjid. I'm religious, out in the street on something else.

01:10:36--> 01:10:38

So this is secularism.

01:10:39--> 01:11:00

teaching young men and women be what you want to be, do what you want to do. Religion is a distraction. Religion is for the ancient minded. Islam is like any other religion. It's a restriction. And it's sad to say, well law with great sorrow, that even some religious people make religion seem that way too.

01:11:01--> 01:11:10

We make it look like it's a rules, rules, rules do this. Don't do that rules, punishment sin hellfire.

01:11:12--> 01:11:12

Why?

01:11:14--> 01:11:30

Why do we do that? This is not how the prophet SAW Selim revealed Islam. And I'm going to talk about that shortly in sha Allah, my brothers and sisters in Islam, for you, for the youth to be on the right path, we need to understand the youth.

01:11:31--> 01:11:36

Number one, a teenager has hormonal overdrive.

01:11:38--> 01:11:40

Their hormones are all over the place.

01:11:42--> 01:11:56

Number two, scientifically proven, the frontal lobe of the teenager has not fully developed yet. Do you know what the frontal lobe does. The frontal lobe is responsible for reasoning,

01:11:57--> 01:11:59

decision making,

01:12:01--> 01:12:43

and solving problems. In the research by the National Institute of Mental Health and University of California, they said that the development of the frontal lobe occurs from the age of four years old to the age of 21 years of age. So this teenager, he reaches he or she reaches puberty at, you know, 1112 or 13. And their bodies grow, their hormones grow. Their temptation and lustful appetites grow. But the frontal lobe responsible for analyzing reasoning, and making decisions and problem solving is yet to grow. So we must understand that factor in the teenagers and be tender and careful in how we teach them.

01:12:44--> 01:12:49

The teenager is very sensitive about the image, their perception,

01:12:50--> 01:13:17

perception of how people think of them, they want to be respected. They want their views to be acknowledged, and they want to be accepted by their peers. Girls and boys are different in their methods. But the same desire is there either way, they want to be respected and acknowledged, they don't want to be shunted aside as if their views are insignificant, they are frustrated, they are frustrated because they feel that they have lack of freedom.

01:13:18--> 01:13:20

They feel that they are powerless.

01:13:22--> 01:14:07

They feel that they want to be independent girls and boys, we need to understand this fact the brothers and sisters before we begin to penalize them and punish them and put them down or or anything like that. This is what they want. And that's why I allow my parents go through that first. When we understand that, then we can understand how to tackle the current culture of young, the young generation. Let us also understand the culture of the young generation in 21st century number one popularity to them is the cool thing. In anything peers are attracted to, then that's what the youth want to go for. So doing illegal things makes you popular. prohibited things makes you gutsy

01:14:07--> 01:14:46

so you become popular looks makes you popular sports you know the governor look in his eyes good at kicking a ball into the goal. It's got skills so become popular and unfortunately a popular kids what do they go for? They go for drugs and alcohol. You know why? Children teenagers, they get attracted by being an outlaw doing what you want normal people doing things outside the norm. Being gutsy, unfortunately is what they do. Their curiosity takes him there. Those who have the religion those who are in there in an Islamic environment. They they want to have religious knowledge and need to show it off. Sometimes they want to have the religious look to say look at me I'm religious

01:14:46--> 01:14:47

popularity

01:14:48--> 01:14:55

is showing off young people. They have this urge to show up if they don't know a lot pantalla very well

01:14:56--> 01:14:58

and this influences their behavior.

01:14:59--> 01:14:59

They

01:15:00--> 01:15:21

expect things to be handed to them without working for it. This is the current youth culture. Parents are considered old minded or outdated. So they don't fit into the equation. You know in Australia is what they say. They call mum. Old cheese. Old cheese. Dad, your old man

01:15:22--> 01:15:23

Subhana Allah.

01:15:25--> 01:15:30

Ibrahim alayhis salam used to dress his father as a betting. Now they address him as old men.

01:15:33--> 01:15:48

And there are cartoons such as The Simpsons and the likes of The Simpsons. It's a very attractive cartoon. You know, even I, when I was when he first came out, I liked it, you know, it's attractive. But in a very subtle way. It has a young boy

01:15:49--> 01:15:52

who is meant to be rebellious.

01:15:53--> 01:15:55

And the father is a dum dum.

01:15:56--> 01:15:57

Dum in

01:15:58--> 01:16:06

the mother. She's the one with all the brains. And she's in control. She resolves all the problems, the girl

01:16:07--> 01:16:27

she's got a mind of her own atheist questions, everything, you know, mentally. And he tells young boys to be like Bart Simpson, young girls to be like Lisa. And fathers. Well, we just feel sorry for them. They're just cuddly big bears.

01:16:29--> 01:16:31

And mothers are the rulers.

01:16:32--> 01:16:36

And really, it really portrays the Western world honestly.

01:16:39--> 01:16:40

We have the current culture

01:16:42--> 01:16:45

where cyber technology is the means of communication.

01:16:47--> 01:16:49

Young people don't know how to communicate anymore.

01:16:50--> 01:17:09

Using time for beneficial work is a waste of time. But for desires it is util use it utilizing time, relationships, friends come before family, intimate relationships, they resorted to girlfriend and boyfriend, homosexuality, marriage, not on their minds.

01:17:10--> 01:17:24

Marriages for older people, have fun when you're young, and let it roll out. Go to Hajj when you're old. Pray when you're old school got a whole life to live. There role models are celebrities.

01:17:26--> 01:17:50

Based on their sporting skills, they choose the role model based on their singing abilities. They choose their own models based on their dancing skills, they can move their role models based on their acting skills, role models based on good looks based on the image and some of them based on gangsters. That's their role models. We have in Australia, a lot of this gangster stuff die by the live by the gun and die by the gun.

01:17:52--> 01:17:57

What is Muslim culture today? It's double identity, don't know which one to go for.

01:17:58--> 01:18:04

And what is shaping all this behavior brothers and sisters in Islam, the education system is one of them.

01:18:05--> 01:18:08

You know, we get proud of our children getting high marks.

01:18:10--> 01:18:24

But what are they getting high marks in knowledge that is beneficial or knowledge which is corrupting their minds. Let us look at the knowledge and education which they're getting rather than how much marks and what grades they got, which is the most important thing.

01:18:26--> 01:18:28

Brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:18:29--> 01:18:32

Our youth today and I'm speaking to the youth now.

01:18:34--> 01:18:36

We used to say,

01:18:37--> 01:18:41

oh my son or my daughter. They're at home and hamdulillah

01:18:43--> 01:18:51

if they're outside, we get worried Where are they? this day and age. this day and age. They sit inside their bedroom.

01:18:53--> 01:18:55

And we don't know the whole world is in front of them.

01:18:56--> 01:19:05

And now we prefer them for them to go out rather than stay in their being corrupted in their own bedroom more than what they are corrupted outside.

01:19:06--> 01:19:18

I had a once a young sister coming knocking on my door at 2am in the middle of the night. And she was overdose on some pills. She had cut her wrists and I thought so Pamela What happened?

01:19:20--> 01:19:28

And she had a big, big problem. I don't want to mention it here in the masjid. But it's a very shameful problem.

01:19:30--> 01:19:53

And she said I looked everywhere for help. And I couldn't find help. So I looked at the Internet and I found a solution on an R and B website r&b rhythm and beat Music Music website. And he was telling me, don't worry, what you feel is normal. Just you need to adjust to it and there are many people like you. We are talking about

01:19:54--> 01:19:58

this type of relationship like convolute

01:20:00--> 01:20:06

So we spoke to her and hamdulillah. But unfortunately, they are finding their role models and places in the wrong places.

01:20:09--> 01:20:42

The internet world and Facebook is a problem. It can be used for good, but it can also be used for evil, unfortunately, and sadly, youth, my dear brothers and sisters, Facebook has become the most popular thing for you. I call it rubbish book. Why? Because the majority of youth unfortunately using it for rubbish. How can a person be happy to have their photo? on Facebook for the whole world to see? I mean, would you come up with your personal photos and show everybody here in this message?

01:20:44--> 01:21:12

sisters and brothers. And then they say to me, but it's a private, you know, we've got like his private place. We only choose who can see it and who can't. You are being deceived. Don't be silly. Did you know that everything that goes on the net is never ever, ever erased? And it is there someone's technology exists, you will die and you still there. Do you know how many marriages have been cut off have been destroyed because of Facebook, using it in the wrong means.

01:21:13--> 01:21:31

How many bullies have resulted from it in schools? You find that there are friends in school they're talking to each other normal, right? Their friends? overnight, they come back and they want to kill each other Why? Something happened over Facebook, gossip and backbiting. And suddenly it's everywhere.

01:21:32--> 01:22:13

Facebook or MSN or I don't know what? Use the fuses for Islam use it for good, but then use it for bad unfortunately, people are using it for that. Did you know that there is a new world order? I'm not talking about conspiracy theories here. But the world is changing. And now they they're hijacking and stealing your identity. Did you know that brothers and sisters, they're stealing your identity. And now even in the Apple iPhones, they've got this new thing called iCloud out of iCloud. You're the IT people were Israel's. You know, Brother, tell us you can teach us iCloud it carries all your personal information, his thing bubble called the cloud, everybody can access it. Is there

01:22:14--> 01:22:27

like a cloud for everybody to know? And soon I heard that they're going to you know, bring currency and finance the way you track your transactions that through it's going to be compulsory back in Australia to use the credit card system.

01:22:28--> 01:22:33

You know, so that your your wealth and your assets are in numbers on the computer screen.

01:22:35--> 01:22:38

I also saw celemony sahabas knew that this day would come

01:22:39--> 01:22:43

and they held their identity very, very firmly.

01:22:46--> 01:22:49

Miss abnorm A radi Allahu anhu had a brother.

01:22:51--> 01:22:52

And in after the Battle of better

01:22:54--> 01:22:55

his brother was a careful

01:22:57--> 01:23:04

and another Sahabi he had tied him. He had tied him with the ropes. He was a captain.

01:23:05--> 01:23:11

And his brother said to massage seeing him walking. He said, Brother, please

01:23:13--> 01:23:19

please help me get me out of this. So then Musab Nami looked at the Sahabi.

01:23:20--> 01:23:24

He said to him, tighten the ropes on him.

01:23:26--> 01:23:51

And the other brother the brother said, Is this what blood reaches us to? He said today, that man is more my brother than you and he is from his own family. Why am I saying this? This person was out there to kill our Azusa asylum and fight Masonic nama and fight the Muslims. But most of them know Omar understood his identity, what it is, his identity is that he is a Muslim of a loss on our time.

01:23:52--> 01:23:58

Today, this order of the world that's trying to pull these people into this trick,

01:24:00--> 01:24:07

the biggest hardship which they are going through other Muslims, why? Because Muslims stay away from things such as interest and rebel,

01:24:09--> 01:24:09

rebel.

01:24:10--> 01:24:21

Did you know that countries of the world Muslim countries of the world they are their people are governed by rulers who are oppressive to them, you know why they are oppressive?

01:24:22--> 01:24:56

Because they have become puppets to the Western world to America and the likes and why they become puppets because they are chained up not by real change. They know what the chains are. They are debt, they are indebted. They visit us with fighting each other. Do you remember when Kosovo was happening bus in Bosnia when the Muslims were being massacred Muslim sisters youth were being raped and killed. Muslim women who were pregnant, they were ripped open and the children were taken out before their brothers and their fathers. fathers were forced to write their own daughters

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

and the brothers and sons

01:25:00--> 01:25:16

had to watch. Where was the Muslim world? Where was the Muslim world at that time? You know what they were? They were busy in Iraq, fighting Iran, even though the common enemy is Israel, but they were fighting each other warfare.

01:25:17--> 01:25:34

Where was where were we? Did we not know about this fight between Kosovo. Muslims massacred in the 1000s and millions more than what they talked about in relation to the genocide of what the the the Jewish genocide that they talked about?

01:25:36--> 01:25:41

Where are the Palestinians massacred in the 1000s every day?

01:25:42--> 01:26:03

And where is the Muslim world, we are busy and our youth are asleep. And I don't blame them for being asleep. This infiltration of what is happening now is making us go to sleep. The only way out my brothers and sisters is to stick to your identity of Islam. The Sahaba has left everything, everything

01:26:05--> 01:26:17

in order to stick to the identity and makhija with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until the point where the prophet SAW Selim said to them, You will rule the Romans Byzantines, you will take over Persia

01:26:19--> 01:26:39

and the Muslims truly did. And they reached places like China in the time of Omar or their loved one among youth. Why? Because they stuck to their identity. Their role model was Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. You know, when I was people asked me when you were a teenager at high school, I went to secular schools, you know, in Australia

01:26:41--> 01:26:50

was a religious person or not Alhamdulillah I was, but it was very difficult. It was very difficult. It's not that easy. You have to be challenged.

01:26:52--> 01:26:59

I went in year seven in year eight, and the students who were there, they bullied me.

01:27:00--> 01:27:05

They bullied me because I was talking about Islam. I talked about Islam all the time.

01:27:06--> 01:27:26

The people who hurt me the most. Were not the non Muslim ones. The ones who hurt me the most with a Muslim friends. I used to be friends with them in primary, but there was no Islamic schools in high school. When we went in. They couldn't identify themselves as Muslims. And when I came around, they avoided me. And they even made fun of me.

01:27:28--> 01:27:47

While we're here I went through misery. As a young child, it's like a prison. But without the lethal side of it. Teenagers go through a lot, man. Well, I feel I feel remote. I feel sorry for them sometimes because they go through very big hardship as a teacher, I counsel them every day. It's very difficult for them what they go through.

01:27:49--> 01:27:53

What kept me on the straight what kept me strong, was one thing.

01:27:55--> 01:28:00

My father, he used to teach me so much about the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

01:28:02--> 01:28:04

I used to remember them, that what they went through.

01:28:06--> 01:28:27

I used to remember who obeyed and hubbub and then urato, the alarm on hubbub and urato, the Allahu anhu. He was captured by Abu Sufyan when he was still a cafe. And he was tied to a pole to a tree. And he began to say to him, yeah, how bad if you say one word, I will let you go. I'm almost done in sha Allah. He said, How bad

01:28:28--> 01:28:31

if you say, if you just say

01:28:32--> 01:28:39

I wish that Mohammed Salah Salem was here in my place, and I was with my family comfortable at home, I will let you free. Just say it.

01:28:40--> 01:28:51

And hubbub said to him. I wish that I will be tortured here. And not to even hear that Mohammed Salim is hurt with a prick of a needle.

01:28:52--> 01:28:53

So he cut off his right arm.

01:28:54--> 01:29:07

He repeated it to him again. And Hubbard repeated the same things I cut off his left arm, he repeated the same thing until he cut off his legs, then his nose, then his eyes, then his ears. And in the end, he stabbed him.

01:29:08--> 01:29:10

Then Apple Sophia and looked around and he said,

01:29:12--> 01:29:13

By God,

01:29:14--> 01:29:36

I have never seen people who love their master as much as what this youth loves their master their prophet. What kind of love is this? Like that other youth who was a memorizer of the Quran, and was Salamanca Deb. He came to him and he put him to the ground with the sword tied him up and cut off his arms. And he said to him,

01:29:37--> 01:29:47

Do you bear witness that Mohammed is a messenger of God? Salaam Salaam? He said, Yes. He said, Do you bear witness that I am a messenger of God? He said, there's a ringing in my ear.

01:29:49--> 01:29:59

So he kept cutting him up cutting him up, and he would continue saying there's a ringing in my ear. There's a ringing in my ear until he died. Saying Mohammed is a messenger of Allah. There's a ringing in my ear in relation to you.

01:30:00--> 01:30:24

They stood firm with their identity. And they are our greatest role models Allah has lifted him. If I asked the youth how many celebrities do you know, Masha, Allah, they count 100, just by sitting there. How many sahabas do you know, they'll count a few by name. But do you know their story is very well read about them, my brothers and sisters will lie. They are something beyond this world, something beyond this world.

01:30:26--> 01:30:36

There is a culture among the youth, which I fear, and that is that they are turning away from marriage. And if they get married, they divorce very quickly. Brothers and sisters in Islam

01:30:37--> 01:30:56

did not let the idea of how long relationships get the better of you. A lot of youth, they come to me and they say, brother, I want to get married. But I need to know I need to get to know the girl. And the girl says I need to get to know the guy. How am I meant to get to know them if I don't go out with them. If we don't have coffee together, if we don't like the West, teachers go out together.

01:30:57--> 01:31:40

Brothers and sisters, let me inform you about something very important. You will never know your future wife or your future husband. If you just go out together, you'll never know them. Take it from a person who's lived in a country where people do this all the time. Because when you go out together, you are on your best behavior. You are on your best looks the best cologne. The ck perfume is on you. And she's got Versace. And she's come out ready to meet you. She's probably looked at at the mirror and spent about half an hour practicing how to talk to you. And you as well. Looking at every little hair on your forehead, every little hair on your cheek. This all fades away within

01:31:40--> 01:31:41

about six months of your marriage.

01:31:43--> 01:32:02

The only thing that's left is the character. You will never know the true character of this person until you meet them in their home. You go the Islamic way. And you go and ask for their hand in marriage for their father first. A lot of youth they come to me and they say I need to get to know the the gill first and Subhanallah how quick they are to jump on where where do they jump on to get to know them?

01:32:04--> 01:32:07

Right here, the internet and

01:32:10--> 01:32:11

messaging text.

01:32:12--> 01:32:13

They start conversing.

01:32:15--> 01:32:16

Are you interested in marriage?

01:32:18--> 01:32:22

She's on the other side. She's got a username first, right?

01:32:23--> 01:32:24

I'm sorry. I'm a brother.

01:32:27--> 01:32:55

Okay, shop for another one. Click Click. Are you interested in marriage? Or maybe just subtly, let's chat comes up says Yes, I'm a sister. How did you know as a sister? And I looked at your profile and you had some really good I mean, I'm interested in that too. And let's get into this conversation. And it comes up to me and says Brother, brother, it's an it's in the interest of marriage. You know, my intentions are pure. your intentions are pure. You're doing this for our last panel dialer. But you're doing it your way.

01:32:57--> 01:33:19

What do you think you're making up your own religion now? So they chit chat and they chit chat and a chit chat right? First they attract each other. Then they meet each other. Then they look at each other. So good to know, right? They haven't touched, then they want to touch, then the touch turns into something else. And then finally, they fall in love.

01:33:20--> 01:33:21

In love.

01:33:23--> 01:33:24

If you only knew

01:33:25--> 01:33:28

brothers and sisters, you don't know what love is. This is not love.

01:33:29--> 01:33:34

This is lust. lust. In the West is what happens boyfriend girlfriend walking.

01:33:36--> 01:33:39

The girl is thinking oh how romantic he is.

01:33:40--> 01:33:44

He's like that movie. I watched the other day Twilight Saga.

01:33:46--> 01:33:50

The boy, he thinks is Rambo. Walking

01:33:51--> 01:33:58

in tensing his muscles. She's thinking how romantic. He is walking me through the garden and the roses and the butterflies.

01:33:59--> 01:34:01

He's got one thing on his mind.

01:34:02--> 01:34:07

And he's thinking, I will tolerate all of this until I get to what I want.

01:34:09--> 01:34:16

And you come to me if he's a Muslim, you ask him about his sister. He will say, I'll kill any guy who looks at her.

01:34:18--> 01:34:32

I see that speak to my students in the playground at lunchtime. They're sitting on benches with girls talking and the girls wearing her hijab, and she's playing with a hijab with a finger like this. And chewing gum.

01:34:33--> 01:34:39

What are you talking about? We're talking about studies. They are they're talking about physics, which is doing this

01:34:41--> 01:34:44

MC squared m equals C. What is it?

01:34:46--> 01:35:00

Something Okay, you know the Pythagoras theorem, a squared plus b squared equals c squared and she's playing like this, and the boy is sitting like this. No, no, no, you see a squared plus b and I can I can solve it for you. Let me show you

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

Do

01:35:01--> 01:35:13

you want to study Why don't you study with the boy? Girl sister and just study with a sister now I know in Sri Lanka you have segregated schools I know that I know. But I'm just telling you that when the when they come together, this is what happens youth.

01:35:15--> 01:35:17

If you want to marry someone,

01:35:18--> 01:35:20

then you go in the right way. Insha Allah

01:35:21--> 01:35:34

go through her father first before you go through the Gil. Why? The Father's? My sisters, I'm talking to you now. Sisters, you've never been a man before. You don't understand how men think.

01:35:35--> 01:35:37

Let your father do the work in sha Allah.

01:35:38--> 01:35:50

And obviously the fathers I encourage you to be more courageous and find husbands for your daughters don't sit there and you know make a difficult. The sahabas they used to make the Hillel easy.

01:35:51--> 01:35:57

So what became hard, the heroine when we make the Hillel hard, the Haram becomes easy.

01:35:59--> 01:36:28

Mark my words brothers and sisters, I'm talking to the parents. When you make the Hillel hard, the Haram becomes easy when you make the Hillel easy. The Haram becomes hard open the doors for marriage inshallah and lower the dowry and go in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah. So the brother comes to the Father, and the Father likes him, then you meet the daughter, and if you fall in love with her Alhamdulillah. But the other way, if you fall in love with each other, you come to ask for her hand in marriage. And then the father says Over my dead body.

01:36:30--> 01:36:32

What are you going to do? Then?

01:36:33--> 01:36:36

You fallen for each other? What are you going to do?

01:36:38--> 01:36:46

The boy is dreaming about her. She's dreaming about him? Is the love of her life. She's the love of his life. That's what the shutdown tells you.

01:36:47--> 01:36:52

What are you going to do? They start to cry, they start to this, they want to commit suicide.

01:36:56--> 01:36:59

So they are loop, they run away together.

01:37:01--> 01:37:13

I'll tell you something else. If he is a brother who fears a lot, then don't worry about it, you feel that it's good. But if you put yourself in this position will lie to you will fall into haram as well. You can't control yourself here.

01:37:15--> 01:37:20

So you fall in love with her. And you've already sent messages and probably even images

01:37:21--> 01:37:22

that are haram

01:37:23--> 01:37:28

and you feel so guilty. And you don't want to marry this girl anymore. Let's say you don't want to marry her anymore.

01:37:29--> 01:37:43

But now you feel obliged. Because you wouldn't want your sisters to be in that situation. So you say man, I have to marry her now because I've gone too far. I feel guilty. I can't just let it go cuz I've gone too far I've used her.

01:37:44--> 01:37:45

So he goes and marries her

01:37:46--> 01:37:50

for two months to get the guilt away.

01:37:51--> 01:38:01

That's what happens my sisters. And that's one of the reasons why divorces happen. He doesn't want you anymore. But he feels the guilt. So he marries you. And then he lets you go.

01:38:03--> 01:38:09

In Australia, there are brothers who get married, and they want to marry a second wife in culture.

01:38:10--> 01:38:26

You know, in Arab culture, for example, marrying a second wife it's difficult. So what do they do they go for converts to Islam. They married them two months, three months down the track and then they divorced them. This is how long? How long to use an abuse.

01:38:27--> 01:38:29

There are married couples

01:38:30--> 01:38:33

who are stricken by this internet business and Facebook.

01:38:35--> 01:38:38

And the last month Allah has given you this Hillel for you at home.

01:38:39--> 01:38:42

And there are sisters Allah has given you this Hillel man at home.

01:38:43--> 01:38:51

But for some reason curiosity gets the better of you and you go to search the world. And divorces occur as a result.

01:38:53--> 01:39:02

Fear Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters, you are only putting yourselves into harm. And our children are being neglected. Our children are being taken away by others.

01:39:04--> 01:39:11

And they are being raised by other people. While the husband and wife are too busy with their desires, some of them young.

01:39:13--> 01:39:19

My brothers and sisters, I ended with a few advices to all of us who

01:39:20--> 01:39:22

want to advise young people

01:39:24--> 01:39:28

or remind you to advise them with care and patience.

01:39:29--> 01:39:32

Never stop communicating with your children.

01:39:34--> 01:39:38

How teenagers when they reach adolescent boy or girl,

01:39:39--> 01:39:44

if they don't have good communication with their parents, they will hide a lot of things from you.

01:39:47--> 01:40:00

And they need role models and guides. If you don't, if you stop communicating, then they will keep the secrets away from you. And they'll tell it to someone else who will give them wrong guidance. I asked

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

Brother one day a colleague of mine, his his children, Masha, Allah, very healthy in communication. I said, How did you manage this? He said, I never stopped talking to them. Like even if they're sitting watching TV, I sit with them. Hello, something Hello. I sit down and I talk though. So what happened here? Oh, and this is what happened. You know, I like that and talking like as if they're their age. So never stop communicating with your teenagers, my brothers and sisters. Secondly, listen to them.

01:40:28--> 01:40:39

Give them the opportunity to speak and explain themselves, especially when they've done the wrong thing. Don't punish them very quick. Give them an opportunity to speak and explain

01:40:42--> 01:40:43

how this is a process.

01:40:47--> 01:40:50

Or Susannah Mr. Do that with his sahabas

01:40:52--> 01:41:08

point out the reasons why something is right, and why something is wrong before you punish your children, especially their teenagers pointed out, tell them why this is right and why this is wrong. And then just say, Allah said, So

01:41:09--> 01:41:43

explain to them and try and tell them from your experience. My father used to we used to have a butcher and my father used to take me out me and my brother to deliver meat to the different restaurants and deliberately used to make us pass by certain streets which had corrupted people there. You know, women who used to stand who looked like men, you know, I'm talking about and we used to see the drunk people's drunk men and because I remember once seeing a man under a coat his leg outside and everybody's walking up and down, not caring about him. I remember seeing young girls they're drunk and, and men are just pulling them this way. And that way, I remember seeing an old

01:41:43--> 01:41:47

woman the age of my grandmother, she's drunk and she's talking and she had urinated

01:41:49--> 01:42:23

and, and people are looking at it. As a child when I was 11 years old. I've got afraid of that. And my father used to say, son, this is the reason why I lost my dad tells you don't drink alcohol. This is the reason why I lost my dad tells you don't have girlfriends and boyfriends is the reason why a lost man tells you stay away from nightclubs and music and this and that. The what will happen to you. And so Pamela developed a sense of fear, in my mind when I became a teenager. Yes, I won't lie to you. I had temptations and the shaitan gave me these urges. And there are opportunities which the shaitan brings to you boys and girls. But what made me afraid is that

01:42:25--> 01:42:38

the consequences of things so when you undo and they understand the reasons behind it, they know they appreciate what you tell them. I also saw Sam said teach your children salad at the age of seven and punish them at the age of 10.

01:42:40--> 01:42:58

So that is the most important factor among the teenagers and I'm talking to the youth here. Salah teaches you discipline Salah teaches your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala everything else doesn't matter if you don't have solid Salah is your main communication with alarm it brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:42:59--> 01:43:09

Pray your five daily prayers and make it your food that you eat make a drink that you drink my dear brothers and sisters. If you love a friend, don't you communicate with them?

01:43:10--> 01:43:25

communicate with Allah if you love him, and die on Salat and sha Allah. Silla is your communication with Allah without it will law he will be nothing. Sylar reminds Li reminds you of a lost power dialer. And I've never seen someone who prays five times a day

01:43:26--> 01:43:29

in prison for crimes.

01:43:32--> 01:43:46

When I visit the prison, I ask, did you use to pray often they will say well, I never used to premium and they go on drugs and they go on this and on that. A salad is your protection my brothers and sisters in Islam. Make it the food and drink.

01:43:47--> 01:43:50

Put it between your eyes and make it your priority.

01:43:52--> 01:44:03

rasulillah salam taught the better one who entered the masjid and urinated in the corner of the masjid. Remember before the Sahaba is drew their swords and they wanted to kill him.

01:44:04--> 01:44:10

Or assassin said no, no, no, they didn't finish let him finish. Let him finish his urination because then it will harm his bladder.

01:44:12--> 01:44:34

After he finished he said Bring some water and just wash it away. And he called the better one in front of him away from everybody. So it doesn't embarrass him. He said my brother the best beautiful words. urination is normal. Everybody needs to do you know call is to respond to the call of nature. But this is not the correct place for this act.

01:44:36--> 01:44:52

just telling him in a very the better one said a law b a b whoever only what law here I would sacrifice myself for him before my mother and father. How gentle and beautiful his explanation was urinating in them imagine that happened here

01:44:54--> 01:44:59

would kill him. Woof. I remember once in the masjid back in Melbourne.

01:45:00--> 01:45:00

Brother

01:45:02--> 01:45:02

he,

01:45:03--> 01:45:22

he prayed while his glasses were on, he kept his glasses on. An old man looked at him. And he started saying how can you pray without your with your glasses on? How can you constrain your bracelet reprimanding him? Then another old man from the side? He said, Take it easy. Take it easy. said Son, you know, take her off. When you go to sushi, you can make sushi with

01:45:23--> 01:45:43

the old, the old, the other elderly. I thought he had wisdom. And the young person had wisdom to know what he said to him. He didn't say, oh, how bad your attitude is? He said, so panela how how silly I am. Why didn't I think of that myself? It took off his glasses and put it here. Even though he disagreed with it, the old man said, so have this reasoning. Insha Allah.

01:45:44--> 01:46:26

Take care with the teenagers and become with them and explain to them with wisdom, and don't tell them off in front of other people. Mm hmm. sheffy says, advising someone in front of others is exposing them. So advise them in secret alone. And I hate him. I'm Shepards to say I would I hate people advising me in public. This is Amanda scheffau saying that. So imagine our teenagers who are still yet developing their frontal lobes. Take it easy. If they didn't listen to you immediately the first time. Mother and Father they say brush your teeth. They're still watching TV. They're still asleep. Did I tell you to brush your teeth? Son helped me take the rubbish out there don't go

01:46:26--> 01:46:29

straight or did I tell you to take the rubbish out? Ah, what am I gonna do with you?

01:46:30--> 01:46:47

You know, come to their husbands. We've got a problem our son or daughter not listening that they're not listening from the first time we have a problem. Take it easy. It's okay. Listen to this beautiful Hadees they draw the Allahu I know, he was a young teenager, probably about 14, maybe 1312 or so SAS. And I'm told him Can you go and get me such a thing?

01:46:49--> 01:46:59

He said yes. jasola he exited the processor and noticed that he was late. He went outside. And he saw as they playing with the children. I actually was standing on watching the children playing

01:47:00--> 01:47:16

like that. Era. Susannah, what do you think he did? He said to him? Yes. aid and say looked at the process. lm Russell was laughing. He was laughing. He said, Did you forget what I told you to do?

01:47:17--> 01:47:18

You forgot, didn't you?

01:47:19--> 01:47:53

And say it looked at him in surprise had done. He said, I'm going now I'm going now. I want you to notice something here. I also saw Sam is laughing. It's like, Look, if you didn't go yet, it's no big deal. And looks at I understand what you're doing. You like the playing around the kids. If I was your age, I'd be the same thing. You know, and I like it to play like as if he's telling him Look, what you're doing. Playing with the kids is no problem. But just come and play after you finished what what you have to do, and come back and play because playing is good. And he's laughing and saying I understand what you're going through. I want you to imagine what would go through his

01:47:53--> 01:48:04

head. As he grows up. He's going to look at Russell's Arsenal and think it's easy to communicate with him. I'm going to come to him and tell him my secrets when I'm having a problem. He understands me.

01:48:05--> 01:48:20

So I'm going to talk to him. That's what happens with your children. So they don't listen, laughter off and say Subhanallah if they make a mistake or an accident, then jump onto them quickly and call them names and insult them.

01:48:21--> 01:48:39

Once they he broke a plate. And the professor says wives, you know, they talk negatively towards him. They said something I also saw Selim interfered immediately. And he said What's wrong? What's wrong? What's wrong? He looked at the plate looked at Zaid was afraid and he said, Don't worry, don't worry.

01:48:40--> 01:49:00

The coda uncover is even upon the plates as well. The plate has a time it's time to die was now come clean. He cleaned it up. It was easy. What happens then? So panela again, this is the the comfort in the way we raised them. Some of us What do we do to our children, they make a mistake. Gosh, you're such a better fingers.

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

You're always been a better fingers. When you're going to learn. Watch it.

01:49:06--> 01:49:12

Silly, stupid. These are words we should never be caught because if you call them these names, they become those names.

01:49:14--> 01:49:17

And lastly, a Buddha or the Allahu anhu.

01:49:19--> 01:49:27

His method was like this. And I finished with this beautiful story. He went he was walking in and he found a people near a well.

01:49:28--> 01:49:50

And they were calling this man bad names because the man had done a bad sin. Then after that came up to them and he said to them, if he fell in a well, would you pick him up and try to save him? They said yes. He said, Well, he's fallen into a sin, pick him up and save him from the sin. Don't call him names and insult him.

01:49:51--> 01:49:59

And then they looked at our data and said, but don't you hate him? Look what he's done. He's done a major sin. Don't you hate him for that? I would that that says I have

01:50:00--> 01:50:14

Take the action which he has done. But as for him, he is my brother. He brought him and he talked to him and advised him in a beautiful way that men repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala and later became one of the figures among the Sahaba.

01:50:17--> 01:50:28

This is how we advise, have a balanced approach my dear brothers and sisters towards our teenagers and let them be role models and leaders of Islam. Insha Allah, my final advice my brothers and sisters, the young youth

01:50:30--> 01:50:39

May Allah span die that preserve you may Allah Subhana Allah strengthen you. In this country, Sri Lanka, you have a lot of work to do in Shell law.

01:50:40--> 01:51:01

Don't exhaust yourself at handle if you're a religious person, don't overdo it. Don't feel that you have to, you know, pray night, pray every time for example, pray it. But start off slow once a month, maybe don't feel that you have to memorize the Quran in just you know, in a month or so.

01:51:02--> 01:51:46

Or a year. If it's if you can memorize it quickly inshallah give yourself time but work in balance with yourself if you can measure a lot excellent. If you can't, and you feel frustrated, explain this to your parents and work with it at ease. And parents give them that opportunity. At the end of the day. We want them to memorize the Quran, inshallah, it's not how quickly it is. It's the quality that we want. And at the end of the day, my son will lie if he memorizes even to AR today, five AR today meros 30 I'm happy memories when they handed in at least they did something my brothers and sisters young people don't over exhaust yourself to the point where if you do so much good, then you

01:51:46--> 01:52:25

lose energy, and you get worse than what you were doing something good and then stopping it is worse than not doing that extra and staying balanced throughout your way. Lots of good deeds. And going back to this is worse than doing minimum good deeds but consistently brothers and sisters in Islam, use your skills and then think that everybody has to learn Islamic education. Everyone has to know this, the fundamentals of Islam, all of us, but none of you not all of you have to become scholars, some become scholars some become some other things. Don't think that we call it psychology and mathematics and engineering, all of that stuff. This is good. Learn it, but use it and see how you

01:52:25--> 01:52:29

can use it into Islam. Remember shafia he was an encyclopedic

01:52:31--> 01:52:31

astronomer.

01:52:33--> 01:53:11

He was an expert in medicine. He was an expert in poetry and many other things other than a scholar. And he used to say the amat lift a large portion of this deal, which is medicine. And the Quran speaks about aquatic life, about astronomy, about psychology about medicine about all these things. So if that's your area, go for it in there, Malik son, Eman Malik son, he didn't become a scholar, and Mr. Malik is a surgeon come and learn come and learn. And it would say no, no, I don't want it. I don't want to learn the basics. And the mathematics sets of Hannah law, who met who did not make knowledge and inheritance. And this tells us that look, let your children go into an area that they

01:53:11--> 01:53:45

enjoy. But just make sure that what they go into is handled within Islamic limits and see how you can use it. We need IT professionals. We need graphic designers, we need people in the media we need people represent us in all these ways. If everybody became a highly man, a scholar, really, I mean, we live in a world where the like or not, technology is advancing. And we live in a world of marketing. We live in a world where we need to know all those other areas like Sandman and faricy. He taught the Muslims how to build a trench the Muslims never knew this idea, but he brought it from the Persian world and because of that a law brought victory to the Muslims out of that that's why we

01:53:45--> 01:54:22

the Muslims reached pleasure after that technology is excellent to learn but use it in the course of Islam don't become doctors and all of that stuff and engineers and accountants and and technicians in even plumbing electrician or whatever you may become it's all excellent, Masha Allah, but don't become these things. And then isolate yourself from the community. We want to benefit Allah gives you something, give back, Give back my brothers and sisters, how wonderful it would be when I heard that lots of Muslims here have got organizations and businesses they've established themselves and we don't need to go anywhere else. We find our employment with each other. That's what the Jews do.

01:54:22--> 01:54:59

That's why they're successful in that employ each other and live and let us grow ourselves from within each other inshallah and then benefit other people, brothers and sisters, your temptations and your desires. Well, luckily, I'm an advocate of people getting married at a young age. And brothers and sisters, the elderly, I encourage you to help if you have the financial means and support, support your children to get married at a young age, don't be afraid, even if they're still at university and at least get them engaged in first year. It will, it helps. In the end it saves them from a lot of things. I'm really an advocate of that. Give

01:55:00--> 01:55:08

To support I mean, I was still at university when I was married. I was finishing my final year, it helped me focus much more. It helped me focus much more.

01:55:10--> 01:55:33

My young brothers and sisters do not resort to the to the the secularist Western ways of relationships. This is not the right way and it causes you harm. Brothers and sisters, your Islam and your deen is the greatest asset that you have. And the sahabas are the greatest more role models that you can ever have. Use them as your role models and work with them every single Sahaba has

01:55:35--> 01:56:03

a particular example and listen that you can learn from you will find it. I'll give you a name for Alibaba, probably Allah one, another name of the live naramata de la Juan, another name of the live not best aprobado Java give you another name. So Hey, brother, Allah Juana. For the sisters, I've given you many names, which I mentioned before, as well. Learn from them, and use them as your role models and shortly you'll feel really good about yourself will give you much encouragement and shout a lot to Ireland.

01:56:07--> 01:56:16

As a young man insha Allah myself, I consider myself a youth still. It is was my pleasure and my honor, to speak to young people and also to elderly.

01:56:18--> 01:56:32

It was my pleasure and my honor to be here in Sri Lanka, this wonderful country, and my perception has become even better than what it was before. I have a lot to go back to Australia, and tell the people about I am

01:56:33--> 01:56:45

impressed very much well hamdulillah and feel proud that you have a strong board, a collective Board of great scholars and imams who help guide you in your affairs of life.

01:56:46--> 01:56:52

And I've met some of them and I am privileged to have set with them. Use them as your guide in sha Allah.

01:56:53--> 01:57:31

I am privileged to have met lots of religious people, many young people are memorizing the Quran, Masha Allah, and I can see many faces that insha Allah will become one of those. My advice to you, however, is don't just memorize the Quran, without knowing its meaning. Try to also learn its meaning and practice it in sha Allah and that will complete your virtue be in the heat island. Be dutiful, towards your parents, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, and you will have a longer life, a happier life and you will feel proud and you will get married and shell and feel happy in your marriage in your children will be as well. Elderly. Please, my brothers and sisters take this

01:57:31--> 01:58:09

advice in sha Allah from me as your son insha Allah because I lived through this. And I want to remind you that you also live through this, your children living through it now. Talk to them subtly. And young brothers and sisters, talk to your parents don't think that old an older generation, they know what you've been through. And let them explain your thoughts. And don't be embarrassed. If you have any questions and you feel embarrassed. Ask the whole ama. Email me if you want email other scholars around the world talk Don't let it stay inside of you and let it eat your way. Talk ask questions insha Allah and relieve yourself from it in Shaolin. There is no Ivan halen

01:58:09--> 01:58:18

in Hillel, meaning if you want to seek knowledge, there's no such thing as being embarrassed of it. Don't be embarrassed but ask with Adam insha Allah tala.

01:58:19--> 01:58:25

Finally I'd like to make a dua for my brothers and sisters in Israel in Sri Lanka. So please say amin

I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to cure the sick among us tonight to forgive the ones who have sins who have sinned to guide the young ones and the old and the elderly ones. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to not leave out anyone who is in hardship except to relieve them from anyone who is in debt to take care of their debt for anyone who is lost to guide them back to the right path. I asked

02:01:18--> 02:01:57
