Indeed All praise is due to a law and as such we should praise Him and seek His help and seek refuge in a law from the evil which is within ourselves, and the evil which results from our deeds. For whomsoever a law has guided, none can miss guide, and whomsoever Allah has announced towards stray, none can guide and I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the last messenger of Allah.
This top the topic of this evening's presentation,
in the shade of the throne
is a hadith narrated by Abu huraira de la Lu from the Prophet from a wireless dum dum.
in which he said,
You will know whom Allahu taala he really Yamanaka in level.
Seven will be shaded by Allah Almighty on a day when there will be no other shade beside his shade.
Mr. Manoj is with sharp Fei vida de la
palma Humala phone bill massage is
a just ruler, a youth who grows up worshipping a law and man whose heart is attached to the master
bath in La,
da da da, da, da, da da
da call in me apart from law.
To men who love each other for the sake of a law. They meet on the basis of it and separate on the basis of it. A man was invited by a woman of high position and beauty and he replies indeed I feel

de la hollien.
A man who gives charity and highest is so much so that his left hand is unaware of what his right hand gave. And a man who remembers a line private and his eyes becomes filled with tears.
has been described by the likes of Mr. Mr. Harvey.
as having reached what we call the level of cooperation that it has been narrated by such a large numbers of companions, it is impossible for them to have conspired to fabricated. This is the highest level of narration of Hadi. Even Abdullah
also said with regard to this Hadith, it is the best and most comprehensive Hadith narrated on meritorious deeds and those who do them insha Allah, it is sufficient for you as honor, because the knowledge encompasses the fact that everyone will be in a lot of shade on the Day of Resurrection will not be affected by the terror of that situation.
So it is a headache of the highest levels of authenticity. Furthermore, it is among the most comprehensive hobbies which address what we refer to as meritorious the
disk describe seven categories of people. And these categories are all linked by common factor. Among them is the love and the fear of a law.
Among them is the consciousness of a law and the desire to hide one act of righteousness from people.
They're all linked together with the opposition to desire
that every human being is driven by a variety of desires.
And it is only those who ultimately are able to overcome them that are successful in this life. And the next
There are links together also, with regard to how each one is a product of another
that the demand was added the righteous ruler, he, when he establishes a an environment of righteousness, then young people will grow up, worshipping Allah. And those who are worshipping Allah will be attached to the mosque.
And those who are attached to the mosque,
they will develop amongst themselves and love for each other for the sake of Allah.
And if they are called by
who is beautiful and has money, and she calls them to corruption, they will have the strength of character and faith to reject her saying, indeed, we fear a lot.
And those who are have reached this level
of fear of a law, when they do righteous deeds, they do them not seeking the admiration and the praise of others. So they willingly give charity without anyone knowing who gave that charity. And furthermore, such a person or such people with these character characteristics, they indeed, will worship a law privately, remember a law and their eyes will become filled with yours.
Now when we look at daddy,
daddy, it seems to refer to men
ages ruler, the term used here is a mama,
a just male ruler,
and then a youth, a male youth who grows up worshipping a law and so on and so forth. The term men or the male terms are used throughout the Hadees. However, the reality is that Hadees of this nature
as verses of the Quran, which addressed similar issues, they are not restricted to men,
but include females at the same time. And this is a basic
factor, which is found in the Arabic language is that we commonly will use male terms to address females, just the very greeting as salaam aleikum. ashira greeting means, please, we are all human.
But we use it to greet women also,
what should be said if we're addressing women should be Assalamualaikum
to all you women. However, this is the nature of Arabic, that it will include using the male term, both males and females.
So it is only where the term has aspects which are only applicable to males that it is restricted to males. But in general, the hubbies addresses both males and females.
Furthermore, the number seven those are problems oftentimes salon began saying, new Villa Houma La la la Li, Yama, La Villa in La Villa, there are seven will be in the shade of Allah, Most Great, most high on a day when there will be no other shade.
The reality is that that number has no special significance.
We can find many references to seven mentioned in the Quran, whether it's seven times a walk around the Kaaba or between suffering miroir, when a child reaches the age of seven, you know, he should be thoughtful or she should be taught the law, and so on and so forth. There are many mentions of seven, sometimes oh seven has some specific relevance to that particular circumstance. Other times, it's just a number, which is mentioned. And we know that in fact, this is just a number because of the fact that there are other marriages, like one Bible verse here, in which she says, you mentioned from the cosmos
that whoever gives time to adapter, whoever gets time give time to a person that they owe us money, and we give them time to pay the farmers come up and they can't pay. But we did give them a chance to pay in spite of the time that the fact that they can't pay whoever does that when the debtor is in difficulty or has it
or excuses that first all together and chances off is depth. These two people will be shaded by a law in his shade on the day when there will be no shade except his eye. This is also found in Hamilton. So here are two other categories mentioned, which were not in the seven mentioned by reguler. law, the law it was endemic. So from that, no scholars have concluded that the number seven is not of particular significance here. Furthermore, you have even had general Afghani, he found another 10 cases
in authentic narrations, which
are all sorts of categories of people also included in the
shade of a loss, thrown.
Other scholars have even gone beyond that. And like I'm happy to Howie, who wrote a chapter in his book called his shadow society, in which he collected 85 of the cases, however, the vast majority were drawn from inauthentic narration, but those gathered by
these are authentically narrated other cases. Now, the holidays goes on to say,
seven were shaded by a law might be
in his shade, we literally
shaded in a lot of
For some people became a problem.
Does the law have a shade
lighter shade than it is making enlightened creatures.
To get shade, you have to have light on one side and you're in between that light and you get a shade.
So this became an issue.
what we understand is that there are other narrations of this Hadith, in which Allah clarifies as in that had narration of the man that it was not in a lot of shade, but the lily Archie in the shade of his throne.
So what we're talking about, is that time was my brother introduced on the Day of Judgment, when people will be standing before a loss, they have been resurrected, the earth becomes flat, they're all standing. And
Allah will bring the sun close,
the sun will become so close
that it will be described as being only a mile away.
And this is the source of the heat, not jahannam. As our brother said in the introduction, though the heat of janam is still to come.
On that Day will be the heat of the sun, the sun, which will be brought within a mile as described by problems.
And at that point, the heat becomes so intense, that everybody is sweating, and they're sweating, according to their deeds, those who have a lot of good deeds, then the sweat will only go up to their ankles, those who
are left to go up to their knees or to their waist. Those who do evil deeds are many, they will be drowning in their threats.
This will be a day, as our brother said, When everyone will desire the shade of Allah throne,
but still the concept of the shade of our throne
for those who have difficulty accepting how Allah has described himself and the things which belong to him.
They who explain that the throne of Allah is his dominion, his authority, and his rule groups like the more it says in life in the cottage dice and ashati these people explained the way a lot grown, they know a lot does not have a throne. What he is referring to here is his dominion.
However, those on the correct path
who didn't deviate from the way that Islam the Quran and the Sunnah was understood by the messenger. By his companions. May Allah be pleased with all of them. Those who stayed on that path. They maintain that the law has a throne.
However, they avoided getting
into how is the throne
explaining how his throne is.
It is enough for us to know. As the prophet SAW, Selim explained that the footstool, the codici, mistakenly translated as the throne also in ISO policy,
the policy if we compare the whole of this universe, everything created to the courtesy, it is like a brass ring thrown in the middle of the desert.
And the policy in relationship to the orange to the throne is like that same brass ring thrown in the middle of the desert.
So, the whole of creation
in relationship to the horsey is insignificant, a brass ring in a desert and the courtesy in relationship to a large throne is also like a brass ring in a desert. So what are we What is this creation like in relationship to a lot of throne?
And Prophet Muhammad's Allah Hadees narrated by war era by alojar, he said, If you ask a law, ask him for fear, doubt, as it is, it is the middle and the highest point of Paradise, from which the rivers of Paradise bring forth and above it is the throne of the Most Merciful.
Now if we take as the as those rationalists would have a stake, that the throne of Allah is his dominion, are we saying that allows dominion is above paradise?
I mean, this is a position of his dominion. Or if we take the verse from Surah, verse seven, in which Allah subhana wa tada said, Look, I know how to Allah, Allah.
throne is above the water within his dominion is above the water.
And sewer, I'm hot off verse 17. When a law says there we are, out of the coma is in Somalia.
And on that day,
our laws, the throne of your Lord will be born by eight angels, are we saying that a lot of the minions will be carried by angels on the day. So we can see that this idea of explaining away a lot grown as his dominion is clearly in error.
It is clearly an error, it is the throne of Allah.
in the Hadith,
the prophet goes on, to describe those who are shaded by the throne. The first is the Imam,
the righteous and just the
one who is just
in himself and in his rule,
is not for show or to establish relationships with others with ulterior motive is justice is a justice based fundamentally on his fear of Allah.
He treats all justly
he he repels oppression, all before him are equal.
And he implements a laws laws on all of the creation, over which he has authority,
as I said, is justice is from within. It is not justice,
as a facade externally, in order to gain certain
positions or control or
power or wealth in this life.
Now, this position of being the Imam as the ultimate ruler of the Muslim state, who is just, of course, this does not include women, because Prophet Muhammad wa salam had said that a people who make a woman their ruler will not succeed. So we know in this case in this category,
The head of states, women are excluded. However,
as Alan said,
each and every one of you is like a shepherd responsible for his flock. So each one does play the role of the man being an Imam is a leader who has people who follows him or her, she in our home is in charge of the home and those under her authority. So the issue of being just is still valid. In her case, in this regard.
And of the live anomaly, Omron alarm generated from the farmer gotta love that he said, The just people will be on podiums of life to the right of
the Most Merciful a law and both his hands are right, will kill Jaya Daisy Amina
those who are just in their rulings, and their families, and in what they have been put in authority over by a Muslim,
or those who are just
in the rulings that they make,
in their positions of authority, whether it be within their families or outside of their family, they will be put in a special position on the day of judgment on podiums of life, besides being under the shade of Allah throne, following the judgment, they will be on podiums of life, on the rights of a rough man.
A special case why, because of the fact that the Imam, the ruler, the authority,
has no fear of anyone, any human beings, because of which he or she will do the right thing will judge justly, they are in a position which is easily exploited, which is easily abused is very easy when a person is in the upper level, the top of an organization or the top of the state or the top of the family, to abuse their position of authority and power. It is very easy, because they are not accountable to anyone. So it's only one who feels a sense of accountability to Allah
who fears a law
who seeks to please the law, such an individual will be able to be judged in spite of whatever circumstances arises before himself or herself.
And other rarer.
He narrated the department lesson and said
there are three whom a law will not reject their
three groups of people whose
whose publications will not be rejected by law, one will remember the law office,
and the judge.
These are all in special categories.
But at the same time,
there are for whom a loss of Hannah masala is angry with
as narrated by the prophet
the trader who frequently swears by a law
everything he sells he tells you what a law he This is a good product.
By Ahmad you have the best thing here, nothing better than it's on the market.
Such a person is hated by Allah.
The proud hopper
a proud hopper one who is poor, destitute
and instead of being humble, humbled by his state of destitution, he is proud
in spite of it all, he is proud any hockey
such an individual is hated.
Because that is a situation where pride has no place
has no place.
destitution, poverty is a means of humiliating people bringing the pot browser downloads to their knees, but as an individual, in spite of it all, still maintains an error an aura of pride. He or she was trying to live beyond their means to create a facade around them that they are living well. They are doing good. You know they are this they are that they're the other
Such a presentation by law.
The adulterous old man.
The adulterous, old man. It didn't just say the adulterous,
the adulterous, old man, meaning that a man was grown old, who knows better, who really has no justification for adultery, not that there can be a justification.
But in the sense that a young person driven by hormones, etc, etc, may commit these things because they're all the pressure is on them. But the old man who doesn't have the pressure anymore, he has no nothing pushing him and forcing him into adultery, but he still falls into adultery, certain individuals is particularly hated by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the sinful
The leader who is currently
one who alive plays in his head
authority, and he or she abuses that control. Such an individual is particularly hated by
the second category, the category of the young man or woman
who grows up worshipping along. Again, what we're looking at is a circumstance where
the pressure is on the most,
what we can see when we go and look at all of these categories, people who have the greatest
pressure on them to commit evil to commit sin, these people who restrain themselves in those times, they have the greatest reward, those who do not have that pressure. But yes, go ahead and commit these, then these people have the greatest punishment.
So we see there's a relationship between the reward and the struggle that one has to do to earn it.
And this is why the scholars have pointed out a principle, which most people find difficult to grasp, initially, the idea as I am advocate, that patience, in times of ease, is greater or more difficult than patient in times of difficulty.
Having patients in times of difficulty is easier than having patients in times of ease.
How is that?
In times of difficulty, the disbeliever can be patient.
Men are raised
under the principle that men don't cry.
So calamity strikes them, they are men, they can hold themselves, they can be patient, don't cry, or a calamity strikes them. And they think logically
What is my reaction is going to bring
if I become impatient, I go crazy, I start breaking things around me, what is it going to change,
to change anything. So as a non believer, not believing in a law, I can get a hold of myself and be patient.
So in this regard, the believer is in no special position over the disbeliever with regard to being patient in times of difficulty.
However, being patient in times of ease, only the believer can do the only one who believes in a law can restrain himself or herself from evil
in the time of
when one seems to have gain success,
the success that this world offers for the person that got time to control himself or herself. And thanks a lot. Thank God
for what he has given them and restrain themselves from wondering the wealth
abusing as well.
It is only believe in a law that can restrain that individual at that time. Otherwise, people just let go. When success comes, that's it. Forget God, forget everything I have succeeded. And the time to enjoy
this his most difficult patient, patient from the Islamic perspective does not merely mean restraining oneself
It also means
restraining oneself from stopping doing things.
In other words, if you are praying regularly,
when times of success and everything comes to you, and you, you feel to be lazy, to restrain yourself and to continue to worship Allah,
in those times, that is the peak of patience,
to stay on the right path.
continue to do what is right at a time when you are successful.
This is the greatest difficulty and this is why
all of these cases that we're looking at, are individuals who will be shaded by the throne of God, on the day of judgment, when there will be no shade. These are all people who will be driven by circumstances, by emotion, by hormones, by whatever
and to be corrupt.
So the young man or woman
who grows up worshipping Allah, this is a special case,
an individual at the time when all the hormones are on them,
calling them to corruption, they restrain themselves and instead, worship a lot, stay on that path, control themselves and do the right thing.
For those who grew up in that state, that is a special reward for them.
And departments as Alan said, The hobbies found in cinema tivity, the two feet of Adams descendants will not move on the Day of Resurrection, when they stand before a law until they're asked about five things.
One, one's age and how one sentence
was used, and how it was used.
One's wealth and from where it was earned.
And on what it was spent.
And what one does with one's knowledge
once used, and how it was spent,
that every person will be asked about their youth. How they spent their youth, do they spend it in the worship of a law? Or did they destroy themselves in corruption
and LaserDisc in order to protect young people from the trials of the hormone of the teenager in the early 20s 1000s. As Alan said, yamasa, Shabaab, Minister Tommy Cole,
watch, oh, young people, those of you who are able to marry, then go ahead and get married.
And if you're unable, then fast, because it will cut your desire.
Young people are encouraged
to marry, to marry young.
Unfortunately, in the Muslim world today, Muslims discourage their young people from marrying young.
They are told you should finish your education first.
And you know, complete your university studies get your degrees and so on. So then get married.
And under that they may as well for the young man, you better get yourself a house together and get all these other things together. You know, you have everything prepared, then you're going to get married.
And what it does, is it causes many young people to go through the most difficult period of their lives unmarried.
And when they finally reach their late 20s or early 30s, this is not the time when they go and get married. So what happened in those almost 20 years between 13 and 30.
happened to them.
And whose fault is it?
primaries is the fault of the parents
All of the parents, of course, they having reached the basis of adulthood in puberty, are held responsible for what they do. But the parent, Gary also a greater sin
for having not helped them out of that situation. And furthermore, what we find parents doing something common here in Toronto, unfortunately and elsewhere, where a young man comes and wants to marry your daughter, and you see he is a pious young man.
He has good character. He has the means to look after your doctor, but
he is not an Egyptian.
And you tell him, you know, I really like to be a nice guy. I think you're good, good. But
you're not a Somali?
I'm sorry, we only marry our daughters to Somalia.
What is this and Islam? What is this got to do with Islam. And then we find young girls and young boys involved in corruption here as a result of them having not gotten married. This is a great sin being perpetuated and perpetrated by Muslim families here in this part of the world and elsewhere. And we need to address this issue.
If we are surprised to build wholesome communities, which fear a lot.
The third category is a man whose heart is attached to the man,
a man whose heart is attached to them.
that he feels a desire to be in the mind
is driven by a desire to be there when he leaves the masjid. He feels a desire to be back there, not that he spends all his time in the masjid. This is again a mistaken view where people go overboard, because promises Allen came to the market on one occasion and saw a man in the back. And he came back again and found him in the market haunt him in the market a number of times and he asked
who is looking after this man's family, and they said his brother, and he said his brother is better than he is.
So the idea of just locking oneself down in the masjid like a monk.
and avoiding one's responsibilities in the world around us. This is not from Islam, this is going to extreme.
We have a responsibility, but at the same time, our hearts are attached to the masjid. We want to be there. We are driven to, to find a way or a means to be in the masjid.
And this of course includes women.
Though Islam does not require them to go to the masjid. in their home, they set aside a place to pray. This is their massive aamupala place of prayer. So in the same way, when the time for prayer comes,
they find themselves
going there to pray. They do not delay on their prayer. This part of that attachments that amounts to is praying at the beginning of the prayer time process, Amanda said
in $1, Allah, the value of the most beloved of God to Allah Almighty is prayer at the beginning of its time.
So we tried to pray whenever this law comes in, the individual tries to catch the first crack beer, but just pray whenever the law comes in meaning you catch the last Raka
right? Or you come to the masjid, you know, and we have what we call a second jamaa
and the third and a fourth and a fifth and a sixth, which is not from this,
which the major scholars of Islamic law the Nam rejected, considered to be not acceptable, but which has become a common practice amongst us today. Will you come late to the mosque and make a new Germano? The way of the companions of the Prophet Allah, as described in the books of our thoughts is a part of whom will
follow porada if they miss the congregational prayer, they prayed individually,
so as not to create the idea in the hearts of the believers. That congregation is anything you'll catch. The congregation is the original Gemma. And it is only in places where there is no established
Mr. Musk on the roadside with people just on their way into traveling to stop off and pray there. You can form different devices, but where you have a mosquito
Where there is an Imam has been designated prayer times have been designated there is only one
problems as Allah said latonya Muna Martha Stockton hourly mechanic, mechanic Illa
if people you work in terms of value is in the first line of the prayer,
people would only get there by drawing law.
being attached to the masjid means trying to get that first like beer being in the first line of the prayer.
Furthermore, it involves remembering a lot after fall off.
It also involves
going to the masjid for prayers like philosophy
about which was awesome and said, Whoever does it will get the reward of overall.
And it also involves training our children to go to the masjid regularly to develop a love of the masses.
And I should mention that when we're saying, remembering a law in the market, it does not mean you know, group remembrance where we gather groups together, or the mom. He says the Panama and everybody repeat after me, I have a lot because this is not from the Sunday I went up to live with us rose came into the market in Damascus and he found people doing this. He
spoke out against them. They asked him What are you doing? Are you changing a lot of religion and the Baba Salaam is still warm in his grave.
So remember, the law must be in accordance with the methodology taught Bible School of Law.
It means not doing anything good. It means not making up our own version of Vicar of remembrance of Allah. as some people thought that when you want to remember Allah, you just repeat the name, Allah.
So you say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, you just keep repeating that over and over and over again.
Or you say instead of thing a lot, which is allaahu, you just say,
boo, boo, boo, boo, boo, boo. me to remember a lot of I screaming this, you hear them in their localcircles of liquor, it sounds like a bunch of wolves.
And they think that they're remembering. In fact, they're insulting along.
This, this is an insult to Allah, just as if somebody
one by your name and keep repeating it. Your name over and over again, Mohammed, Mohammed, Mohammed, Mohammed, Mohammed, you look at this person say what is wrong with this guy?
We need to take into the hospital.
And instead of calling you Mohamed, excuse, call you?
Are you doing?
So similarly, this kind of practice of distorting a lot of names, saying them in ways which we're not, we're not taught by problems or sell them or like something? You know, there's one
which teaches that when you say a last name, you're supposed to start by looking at your heart. And you say Allah
has come from?
Where did this come from? Did Babylon settle and do this? No. We even have those you know, of the men that we order, who stand up and spin themselves around in circles
in circles, like ballerinas and they say, well, we are remembering a lot. This is remembering
where it is it's
surely not como una La Jolla. So when we think about remembering a lot, we think about remembering him as he was remembered by Rasulullah Masada as his companions understood, the remembrance of Allah and this also includes liquor bees.
This also includes the cubbies, those who remember a law by counting on these these
who started to do this practice.
Many years after the death of Bob Monticello.
He died in the seventh century. If you go to the encyclopedia, Encyclopedia Britannica, the biggest impact of Legion most authoritative encyclopedia in English and you look under rosary.
You will find that the Catholic began using Vicar bees.
Back in the second century,
they began it and they described the cubbies of the Catholics. And it is the same description of what
we used to see in the shops that were selling us the cubbies. The cases in which they came, they came from Italy. These are a specialist in making the cubbies, what would be written on the outside of the case, Mohammed and rosary
because that's what they were Mohammedan rosary
is not from the Sunnah of Rasulullah salam, and its companion was to count the remembrance of Allah on the fingertips.
So we don't have any religious artifacts,
or other religious systems, you see them caught up in a bunch of artifacts, they have different objects, which they use in their worship, we don't have objects, which we use in our worship, we worship Allah, pure, without the need for any objects. Even a cat For example, some people turn the cat which is from the Sunnah of the sahaabah, and the others naturally cover their head. But some people turn it into a prayer gap.
Right, so you have some mock ups where they have a pile of caps by the door, when you come in to pick up the cap to get on the head, they pray, when they finish, they could also to back up,
or they carry the catheter in your pocket or hyper shift, you know. And when the time comes to prayer, they take it outside and some Muslim they put it on their head.
Sometimes it's like a shift they've blown their nose in
and it's taking on the hand healing, no, I must cover my head at any cost.
they remembered something of Allah should be as the Summa laude from a lot of types of
women who love each other, only for the sake of Allah.
It is the nature of human beings,
to love others for what one gets from others.
So also helps me go on so give me I love that person. When they don't give me I don't love them anymore. This is a nature we tend to love people for what we get from them. Whereas the true love the higher love, the love which is pleasing to God, which God rewards us for is to love our brothers and our sisters, for the sake of Allah.
Only for the sake of Allah,
we need them for the sake of Allah, as we separate for the sake of Allah, there are no ulterior motive.
There are no ulterior motive.
And this means that our brothers and our sisters have a right in our wealth.
We help them whenever the opportunity presents itself. And there are a number of rights of brotherhood about with the Broncos.
And in general,
we can say that the rights of brotherhood not only involves the giving and sharing of what we have, but it also involves the protecting of our brothers and sisters honor.
When we love somebody for the sake of Allah, we protect their honor, meaning that if people are speaking about our brothers and our sisters, we stopped them. We do not allow them to back by the slander, etc. We're not silent. In times when their honor is being destroyed. Also, we are silent
about their faults when there is no need to express their faults. There are certain times of course, when we will speak. And we should speak about the fall of our brothers or sisters. In the times of marriage, for example, somebody comes and wants to marry, go and throw in the house. What do you know about Toronto? At this time, one cannot say, Oh, he's wonderful Muslim, he's a wonderful Muslim, you know, just a good thing.
No, if there are things which are wrong, then they should be told they should be in the frequency be informed about it. Because this is now a question of Amana, where people are trusting us to give them the correct information. And this was the methodology of the Prophet and they got decent doesn't be upon him. When foster faith came and asked him about marriage to
Islamic law. No both of these people proposed to her
That umbrella is known to be this woman.
And he understands it. He doesn't share his money.
And he said, If you really want a good husband and married to somebody to date, he recommended somebody else.
Law circumstances, it is permissible for us to speak about the faults of others, or in cases where we're going into a business deal. You know, you ask a brother, or you ask a sister, you know, I'm planning to enter into this business deal to make this person a business partner. What do you think? What's your opinion? Now you just finished getting ripped off by this person? You cannot just sit there so is it good brother, good sister, Mashallah, you know, because you don't want to speak bad about the first note is not the time, because it is your responsibility to protect your brother and sister where they may be harmed by that individual. So there's a time when you must speak. But that
doesn't mean you just let loose. You know, you didn't just tell them what you needed to tell them. If you went into everything else. The clothes they wear, you know, how they blow their nose, you know, you don't need to go into all the things that you really don't like about them, you just deal with the things which have to do with that particular request which was made upon you.
So, that second, or that fourth group, are those who love each other, for the sake of Allah. They need
out of the sake of Allah, and they separate for the sake of a law. They advise each other. For the sake of a law when they see each other doing wrong, they advise each other, what the law COVID with the law called is proper. They advise each other to be patients and they advise each other to be truthful. Furthermore, they excuse the mistakes of others, they try to have a good thoughts about their brothers and sisters. And about them I said and movement were movement, that is believer is a mirror of his fellow believer, her fellow believer,
we also as believers, should make dua for our brothers and sisters in this life, as well as after their death.
belong in a way like
this application of a brother for his brother of a Muslim for another Muslim
in the Arab
world is not rejected by a lot.
And we also give them the benefit of the doubt
where circumstance appears that they have done something wrong we tried to find some excuse. Maybe we have misunderstood maybe they misunderstood they didn't intend this was a lot wiser.
And as a product or sell unwarranted it's one that's also in the sun. Now, you know, when a lot told us in the Baba Bunny is indeed some form of doubt, is self regard gentleman said he was been by not one not accessible, heavy.
Beware of doubt.
For a For indeed, speaking about doubt, is the worst or the most lying form of speech.
And the fifth category is a man
who is called by a beautiful and powerful woman, a woman who has both beauty and
right. That's what men go called by such a woman rejects her or a woman who is invited by a man who has wealth and has status and handsome or whatever, she rejects him for the fear of a loss that will be under the throne of a law on a day when there will be no shade other than the shade of a large throne. Because this is the height of temptation.
Beauty and status.
access to situation where three young men or three men were trapped in a cave.
A boulder has come over the mouth of the cave, they enter the cave to get protection from rain. And in that state, it seemed as though they would die.
So each of them may they do are calling on a law making so awful
With summarises deed which they did.
And as a result of seeking intercession
through their righteous deeds, the ball there was removed from the case by the mercy of Allah. One of those three was one was in a position
a woman who was indebted to him.
But he restrained himself from doing so, when she reminded him to fear a lot.
a male or a female
and they're in a position
to fulfill their desire,
a law rewards them greatly.
As you said,
Mancera cache and in law, our law
whoever leaves something for the sake of Allah, Allah will reward them with what is better than
this happy is one which we need to reflect on, especially in our lives here as we live in a society belonging to the disbelievers.
One in which our faith is tested daily,
where we are invited by the society to disobey Allah,
whether it is through mortgages, or insurance, or a variety of other things.
We need to reflect on this habit.
Whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah,
allow and replaces, with what is better than
a similar to that individual who gives up that opportunity, an opportunity to corruption wherein one is only accountable to a law, there's no one around one to prevent one.
And they give it up for the sake of Allah.
So great is the reward,
that they would receive the shade of Allah throw
the shade of Allah thrown on a day, when there is no other shade.
can be looked at with regard to the marriage situation that we spoke about earlier, the need for marriage, because that situation develops.
Oftentimes, where marriage is not
made easy for Muslims.
We should facilitate, encourage, married early marriage to avoid
so that young men and young women may grow up.
So their chastity may be preserved and protected.
So that we don't have to resort to a corrupt an artificial meaning. Like the practices of genital mutilation, found in places like Egypt and the Sudan,
where people seek to artificially ensure chastity on the part of women, an evil practice which has nothing to do with Islamic better, we just married them young. we marry them young we don't have to get into these things. We don't have to think about it. We don't have to try to avoid it because they have married at the age which was recommended by prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
When we speak of issues of marriage to people or marriage of people who are young, it is important also for us to keep in mind at issue wherein the Prophet Muhammad
has been maligned
by some involved in missionary work amongst Muslims as a means of bringing Muslims down making them feel ashamed of their religion. They point the finger at Muslims and say your profit was up
your profit, married a young girl who was only seven years old.
This is considered in the society today evil
sexual relations between an adult and a child. This is considered a crime known as pedophilia.
However, we should note
that this accusation is a false accusation. We should not feel shy. So we have to try to write books, wherein we claim that I really wasn't seven, when she was married, but she was 17. No,
we don't need to go there. Yes, she was six or seven at the time when she got married. She didn't come to live with the Prophet Muhammad until the age of nine,
she had her mental
menses, which is the natural science of womanhood.
In our time, the idea of a nine year old being considered a woman might seem very strange.
We have girls who reach the age of 20.
And they're still girls.
They don't know how to watch iron, you know, do the things of a home take care of a home they don't. Because they're raised, pampered.
So in such a society, the idea of, you know, somebody was nine years old, getting married, this is definitely
is not evil in their view. The reality is that you're talking about 1400 years ago,
in a world wherever you went in the world, people who are young at that age, were getting married. This is not something strange. If you go back and look at the rulers, in Europe, in Asia, wherever you went in the world, you'll find that 1400 years ago, people married quote, unquote, children.
And then we asked the question,
what is pedophilia is pedophilia marriage?
Those people who are involved in the crime of pedophilia, what are they doing? They are going to third world countries or countries where people are desperate, and they are buying these children and abusing them sexually. They're not talking about marriage, and boy, they're marrying anybody. They're just abusing them.
paedophilia, marriage is a whole nother thing. Marriage is an institution.
Marriage is honor.
There's honor there versus honor is protected.
And then again, if one were to ask the West,
so at what age should people be married?
Well, they have different numbers. In fact, if we look at the statistics concerning Europe,
for what they call consensual sex, means a female may have sexual relations at this age. And her consent is sufficient is not considered to be rape or anything else. pedophilia or anything else.
I'm not just saying she could have sexual relations freely at this age.
In England, is it
in France is 17.
And Germany is 16th.
In Italy, it's 14
in Holland as well.
So then, what is the age?
What number are we going to use? These are just arbitrary numbers they've just thrown around. So what is considered a crime in one country is considered illegal legal in another and it is within the European Union itself.
What Islam has prescribed here is puberty. This is a real dividing line. When a girl become a woman, a little woman, but still a woman, this is God's side, what we call nature, showing that she is now capable of bearing.
So there is nothing wrong with it. Nothing we should be ashamed about.
So marriage should be encouraged
to protect the society males and females.
ending up in the situations of corruption, where they are driven and tested, because of their state of having not been able to get married because of a variety of different reasons, obstacles, which are placed in front of them, by parents, in our society today, we need to fight against these. And a young woman needs to know that if she feels herself in need of marriage, and if her parents refuse to marry her, her father, who is their guardian, he refuses the merrier, because the person who wants the merrier is not a Pakistani,
or is not a Nigerian? Or is not
a Malaysian or is not an Arab, or is not or is not, or is not
these reasons which have nothing to do with Islam,
which are cursed by Allah, about which problems are solved and said, Man dial and
whoever calls to nationalism, tribalism is not our
young women need to know and young men need to know that if parents refuse, they have the right to go to the party, the Muslim judge, or the Muslim Imam, the head of the community, and have the authority of the Father taken away.
Where the mom can now stand as the wily for the one who's when he is in our whose will is invalid, invalidated by their refusal to marry
young people, because of an Islamic reason.
The sixth category
one who gives
in such a way, so secret a way that his life and or his left hand is unaware of what his right hand gave
this as a metaphor for secrecy. Once left hand is not aware of what the right hand is,
this is a recommendation
is not to say this is the only way that we can give charity, charity can be given openly.
Sometimes it is good for masala makers, on certain circumstances to encourage others, you know, when we have a need, and we say who will donate, and somebody there stands up and says I will donate to AWS also.
This is the capital, this is a means of encouraging others. But the danger in those circumstances, circumstances is that one is
seeking the admiration the admiration of others,
that others will praise them, say how generous they are, you know, honor them, etc. You know, respect to them, because of their willingness to give.
This is a danger that that enters into our heart.
But if the need arises, we have to do it anyhow.
But this is the danger when one gets
in a circumstance where nobody knows.
So under those circumstances where they're calling, and some people have to step forward, other people who fear that this will answer their heart. After it is all over. They put the money in a package or they write a check.
And they put it in an envelope and it is given to the project.
Nobody knows who gave it. They only know that the money came
with one gift like that.
That earns the person that special reward. Because it is our nature.
It is our desire to want to be praised.
to want to the things
that make us feel good. And this is why problema said
man Lama Yeshe during nap, Ramesh Khurana, whoever doesn't sign people doesn't sign Allah.
He prescribes that thanking people is obligatory
we must thank people.
Why? Because it is encouraging
To them to continue to give
design so that if we give something we do something for somebody, and they don't thank us that when the time comes a second time we do something for them, we say Huh, why should we give them they were not thankful. They were not grateful they were ungrateful. So, why should we help them?
It is our nature to do this.
So, have not taken into account that nature, he required us to thank those who are generous and who helped us.
the higher level is to give without taking any time taking any reward, to do it purely for the sake of Allah.
And this principle, the principle of doing actions or acts of worship, in secret is something encouraged
throughout the religion,
something encouraged throughout the religions. This is why the
that after the Salah colossal Marie cbit, inland mokuba. The best
prayers are the prayers of a man it is home with the exception of the compulsory prayer.
It is preferable far better to do the Sunnah, we call the sundown
in our home, far better to do that than to do it in the masjid. Why?
Because doing it at home, the chances of doing it for people to see
that we do it is sincere.
Secondly, it also encourages the members of the household to establish the prayer to know that the children sees their parents praying all the time in the home, and is also further encouragement.
And also the prayer at night.
The reward for it is great. Why? Because it's again, a person wakes up from his or her sleep and turn the worship Allah, no one knows that they're doing so except Allah. So the reward for such worship is Amen.
And the last category
one who remembers a lot in private, and his or her eyes become filled with here.
Your eyes become filled with here
either, because when they remember a lot,
and they reflect on the greatness of a lot.
They are moved to tear
when we watch
a football game, or some other game that we are addicted to.
And our side wins. We're so happy. We're crying with happiness.
We do that. But we can't cry with happiness. When reflecting on a loss
it's telling us we are in a state
or we cry
When reflecting on our sin.
What we have done,
how disobedient we have been.
The fact that Allah knows everything that we have done, and we will see us on the Day of Judgment. So we cry,
out of regret, out of sadness, out of knowing that the law is aware of everything, and he will be enough to account
instead of crying, remembering a lie this way. We cry when our team loses.
When our favorite team loses. We thought they were gonna win the championship. And at the last moment the other team defeated them. We're so sad we're driven to tears.
We cry for the wrong thing.
And it's a reflection of the state of our
we don't look into ourselves.
Realize opposition before a law, we don't feel ashamed of our disobedience.
This is when we should be crying.
Because Allah says, in an authentic narration
we should cry before Allah.
And if we cannot try, we should make ourselves cry.
We should make ourselves cry.
Somebody might say, well,
that's like democracy, you're crying when you really don't have the necessary sadness or whatever to try but no
we cry we make ourselves cry in order to break the hardness of our heart
We are forcing ourselves to cry that perhaps having done that enough times, we will cry when we should try
and of course is crying is not a public crying
like the 27th of Ramadan when people think it's my little brother
and the mom is making the photos and people are waiting and crying and all of this carry on is not from this window.
It is not the crying please into
the crying which is pleasing to Allah is the one which comes spontaneously the one which comes inside of itself comes on us spontaneously because we cannot control it is one thing, but this crime is this artificial wailing on that particular night. No, this is not from the sooner This is not what
Allah has called us to do.
Men Dacron bah bah bah
men hashes in half sigh You see, but
men do more. I love you Melfi.
One remember the law
and his or her eyes become filled with hearing from the fear of a law.
So much so that the earth becomes wet from their tears.
They will not be punished on the Day of Judgment.
So many places in the Quran, where a lot speaks about the true believers as being those who when a lot of verses are recite to them recited to them watching Hulu home there has become
among the things that we have to fight against the hardness of the heart.
Where we are not moved to tears where we don't see it in our hearts. Our hearts don't cover when a last name is mentioned.
When the pond is resized,
we are not touched by it, because we don't reflect on its meaning.
Or the law says to us
will they not reflect on the meanings of the plan? Or are their hearts filled up?
We are not reflecting on what the law is saying.
What we ended up liking or referring is the musical quality of the various recitals.
We like our bubastis over you know, and hopefully you liked him, shall we? Oh, this one. Why?
Because you like the beauty of their voices. So we have turned the Quranic recitation into
a love like those who love the pop stars.
This is something we need to reflect on.
The crime is supposed to move us not because of the beauty of the recycles voice. But because of what Allah is saying.
This is why we need to know Arabic.
We need to understand the laws words as they were revealed.
There is a duty on each and every Muslim to strive to learn Arabic to the degree that he or she is able to when they hear
Last Words recited, it moves down,
it touches their heart.
So, in summary,
there are seven,
seven shaded by
the shade of a last row,
on a day, when there is no shade,
a lot throne
is above his creation. And Allah is above
him is beyond above and beyond the creation.
He is not mixed up inside of his creation,
a very important concept because he believes that the law is everywhere,
inside of everything. This is the foundation of idolatry.
Those who worship idols, who have philosophize, their worship will tell you I am not worshipping this idol that you see, Ganesh
the elephant had god of the Hindus, I am not worship being the object that you see, I am worshipping Brockman.
The one God
who is everywhere and who pervades everything.
But at the time of my worship of this idol duty, that God Rahaman becomes concentrated in the idols by worshipping Brockman who concentrated in the idols and not the idol.
That is what they think. Those who have delved into the religion who know the depth of it. This is their argument, of course, the common Hindu, if you ask him, he says, I worship Ganesh because whenever I worship in my prayers, I
guess the I don't, I don't have a problem with that. When I pray to God, what I pray for my prayers is
he doesn't want the philosophy. But those who are more educated the yogi, their chef,
the chef will give you this explanation of the the essence of their worship.
So when one says allies everywhere one supports their idolatry, once the fourth and promotes the idea that Allah is mixed up inside of his creation, and that leads ultimately to the claim that Allah and His creation are one
what is known as white metal,
or monism. This is an idea which was propagated by either Arabic
and andalusi. From the 13th century, who made this claim everything Why are you worshiping anyone outside of yourself allies in me realizing you? There's no need to worship any external being
you can worship yourself,
because you are alive.
This idea is being promoted today by Harun Yahya.
How do YA books coming out of
evolution at various nations etc, etc. If you go to the end of the book, the last chapter, his last chapter is exactly that.
He says, so stupid people who think that Allah is above his creation.
He ridicules those who believe that the lies above equation low when you go to Sahih Muslim
to the heartbeat of Maui
who had lost his place girl in the face. Because some of the sheets that she was guarding, were stolen by a wolf. And he went to Prophet Muhammad wa Salaam to find out what he could do as atonement for this evil deed which he had done tapping on the face. And the Prophet
told him to bring her he asked, Can I free her? He said, Bring her. And when he brought her, he asked her, I know law, where is a law?
And she said, just above the heavens. And he said, Who am I? And who am I? And she said,
to law, you are the Messenger of Allah. And he started to while he hasn't kept them and said to him
reading her because she is a true believer.
Dr. Lam confirmed her statement of the law is above the heavens as proof of the correctness of our faith.
But how do ya says, so stupid people who think that the law is above the heaven?
He goes on to say allies everywhere. This world that you see is an illusion. And it brings the scientific arguments about why this world is an illusion. Because yes, on the molecular level, this table this, this podium, which looks flawless, to us is zero quality. If you go down on the molecular level, everything is moving.
It is not solid.
And if you look at colors, the colors that we see, are these colors real?
Or is it a reflection of of the light on these objects as it hits our retina, and our brains create a sense of color in our brain?
We argue, it is all an illusion. This world is a shadow world. This is taken from Plato. Plato speaks about the shadow world, you know, ancient Greek philosophers. And he argued that this world is an illusion. And he quotes from it
and praises him as the Imam or Abadi when he was in fact, a chapter, a disbeliever. And he read
who even many of those who are involved in stupid
ditch diggers amongst the stupid declared him to be erratic.
But who claims for himself to be the author will only feel of the stagecoach.
And they're ignorant Muslim to take him as such and pray to Him.
The point is, be aware of how erroneous
his books have
information which does
defeat the arguments of the evolutionist. He brings some good bits and pieces of information. However, he has a hidden agenda.
He has a hidden agenda, be aware of how Yeah.
So these other individuals who represent groups of people who are shaded by a loss thrown on the day when there's no shade,
develop, amongst themselves, a love of each other, for the sake of a law. It is there a fear of Allah, their love of Allah, which has brought them there.
So they develop relationships, out of fear, and love of Allah.
And those who have developed that fear, when they're invited to corruption, by those in power with beauty and were handsome, etc, they are able to stand firm, and say, in the apothem law, indeed, I fear a lot, I will not do as you request.
those who have that strength,
that strength, of
strength, of character, such a person is able to give, without seeking praise. They give from their wealth, their time, their friends, without seeking a reward. They are doing this only for the sake of a law. And those who have that ability, who don't need the praise of others. When they remember Allah,
hi, there I become filled with yours, your hearts become soft, and their eyes filled with tears. I asked a lot to make us those who will be shaded by a loss. throw another day when there's no shame. However, we know that this is not easy.
This is something that you have to work for. It involves driving against our desires. All our desires are pushing us to be the opposite of all of
So we have to struggle. We have to fight and that's life alive
and trial. Allah give us the strength to meet the test and to fulfill
our role here is just like to earn for ourselves paradise in the next
