Brothers and sisters did not come alongside him for inviting me to come here today.
I usually start off by making everybody mellowed out a little bit, crack a few jokes. I don't like cracking jokes too much. But you know, what I say tends to be left out. So just leave it at that.
You know, I noticed a lot of you since I arrived, the brothers that picked me up, they seem really tired. They've been writing a lot of assignments and handing in papers, preparing for exams when I got here seems like everybody else is in the same mode. So I'm like, Why don't they invite you to come now?
Everyone's gonna fall asleep. So you know, I'm gonna have to try to make this a little lively for you. and
myself included. It's the end of the semester, I have a lot of papers do as well. And when Sam called me up last week, I was like, You know what? No, just straight up. No. And he goes, You know what?
Just get yourself a nice cheesecake or something and take 24 hours, think about it and give me a call tomorrow, tomorrow. And I'm like, Okay, sounds reasonable, you know, cheesecake, why not? So
I decided why not come back. I love this university, myself. I'm not the actual University. I don't know anything about it. But I love the brothers and sisters for the sake of a lot. And you know, I'm just really happy to be back.
Brothers and sisters, something came to my attention, something really strange, while at the same time very disturbing. I noticed from listening to some of the brothers speaking on the way here, and you know, by spending a few minutes before this lecture, that there has been a few incidents that have taken place here on campus, specifically, whether between Muslims or non Muslims. And this is something that we all need to wake up and smell the coffee. Okay, it's time that we wake up. It's time that we realize who we are, and what we are here for what we have been placed on this planet for. And this is what we're going to talk about today. inshallah, we're going to talk about why we
are here, what is our purpose, it's time to wake up. It is not, you know, wake up in the morning, we go pray fudger, and I'm going to talk to you about the importance of photos. No, I'm not going to talk to you about photo, I'm going to talk to you about something I'm going to talk to you about thick. Okay, I'm going to talk to you about something more important. And what is more important than anything else in our religion of us.
So we're going to spend this next hour in Java talking about a loss of kinda what time because if we don't realize who a loss of handling data is, we will not be able to realize why we do anything in our life. Why is it that we are studying? Why is it that all of us have, you know, bloodshot eyes, we're all tired from reading and reading assignments? Why is it that we're doing this? Why are we striving so hard? What is the struggle for? Is it worth something in this life or not?
And in order to make it worth something, we have to understand why we're doing it. And the only reason why we do anything is to please Allah subhana wa Tada. So everything that we do in our life is for us, and kind of whatever. But do we really love a lot? Ask yourselves? Do you really love a lust pattern? What's happening?
Now I want everyone to whoever agrees with me. Okay, whoever loves the last panel, please raise your hands.
And this is a question that is not to be taken to offense by anybody, just so that I know so that I can gear my lecture accordingly. I want to know if anybody here is not Muslim, somebody who's not Muslim, please don't feel shy just let me know. Because that way I can word my translations better so that you'll be able to understand for example, if I just say the last sentence, you will not know what I'm talking about. So if anybody is not listening, please just raise your hand or gesture so I know.
Okay, so everybody hears listening. Okay.
So brothers and sisters do we really love awesome handle and I want you to think, have you ever lost a loved one?
I want you to think, you know, you're sitting here in Malaysia and your families are in another country.
Most of you
I'm sure probably all of you, and you're on the other side of the world, sometimes you run into financial problems. Sometimes, you know, you just want to buy something new, you may want a car because it's easier for you to walk up that hill coming to UMC. Or you may, you know, just have run out of money, you can't buy any food. And there's somebody back home, whether it's your mother, or your father, or a brother, or a sister, or a relative, or a really close friend, that is always there for you. Somebody who, you know, through thick and thin is always on your side, I want you think of that person, visualize them in your mind for you right now.
And think of this person.
And keep that thought in your mind.
Now, imagine if that person when you walked out of this room, right now, after this lecture,
you receive a text message, because I'm sure all your phones are switched on sign in right now. Right?
You received a text message. And that text message says that, that loved one of yours just passed away. That person that you, you know, look to for support, whether it was emotional support, financial support, or any kind of support I just passed away?
How would you feel?
How would you feel if you lost your mother or your father? How would you feel if you lost a brother or a sister, or your husband or your wife? How would you feel?
keep that in your mind, I want you to think of these things throughout this whole talk. I'm not going to bombard you with a lot of information. But I want you to think I want you to just ponder over what we're talking about.
That person that used to help you come over trials, you know, overcome your tribe. Now you're faced with the trial of losing that person that you loved that person that always helped you. How are you going to overcome it?
How will you get through the next day? How will you get through tonight? You have assignments, you have exams? How will you do it?
Who do you put your trust in to help you through these rough times.
If your trust is in somebody other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, of course, this will be a very hard and very difficult task for you. But if you put your trust in Allah, and you always turn to a last panel with Allah to make things easier for you, and you ask God to help you, then this trial, this hardship that you're faced with, will be overcome very easily. But you need to turn to a loss
and is only with the men that we can overcome these hardships. So we're going to talk a little bit about you know, our topic today is about building our event a little bit, you know, a wake up call or talk about waking up in the morning, what do we do, we go and pray fudger that gives us that human boost for the rest of the day. And for those of us that have a hard time getting up for budget, we feel you know, our day is lacking in something and the brothers and sisters that get up for fudger you know, and they the brothers and the sisters wake up for fudger all the time. They feel like you know, they started the day on the best thing ever. They prayed.
So we're going to talk about that today. Insha Allah, we have to prepare ourselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala said,
first number 28
Verily, it is with the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada that the hearts find rest, the hearts are at peace. So we seek a loss of handle which is held during these hardships. Correct. Now,
if I was to tell you that,
you know, we're sitting here and we see somebody walked by, and we're like, this person is a dead man walking. What do you think in your mind?
This is a dead man walking.
Now today with the media and everything, you know, we're starting to think oh my god, somebody's going to kill them. This is not good. We shouldn't be talking about that. But we're not talking about that. I'm talking about somebody who's about to be killed. We're talking about a dead man walking, meaning the heart is dead. The heart has no emotion in it. They don't believe in the last panel, or they believe in Allah. But that's it. You know, those brothers and sisters and say, Allah knows what's in here and they go on their day. That's what we're talking about. We're talking about people who don't have even in the last panel to add that they don't believe in a God. They don't put
their trust in
They say their tongue but they don't actually believe it. Okay, so Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it easy for us if we put our trust in Allah, He makes us as though we are living people walking on the earth. We are not dead people walk. And a good example of a dead man walking is, for example, the doctor. Okay, doctors are not dead men. Don't get me wrong. I know a lot of you are studying, you know, to be doctors or in whatever field medical doctors or engineering whatever it may be.
Now, I'll give you a very simple example. My brother this year, he was admitted in the hospital. This was in about February, April, something like that. He was admitted in hospital, he had a doctor, his name is Dr. Shaner. He was a really good doctor, very old, over seven years old. And he was a Jewish man. He didn't believe in a lot.
This, this doctor,
this doctor did for my brother, what my brother said, you know, with tears running down his eyes, saying that this doctor, even though he knows I'm a Muslim, and even though he's Jewish, and we have so many differences with the media today, what's going on, he still goes out of his way, his wife is sick, the doctor's wife is sick. And she's about to pass away, she has cancer.
And he goes out of his way, because my brother had been admitted in the hospital twice. And he realizes this is strange that some of it at this young age is having this kind of difficulty. So he comes from his house in the middle of the night, in order to treat my brother in order to operate on him in the middle of the night when he doesn't have to.
But my brother, and he finds this amazing and intriguing. Why is this person who's not a Muslim coming in helping me and he does all these good things. And this person saves people's lives. Maybe for the past 40 or 50 years, he's helping people saving their lives. But is it worth anything in the hereafter?
Is there a purpose to your life? if all you're doing is helping people now, but you do not believe in the last panel without an hereafter? Is there a purpose to your life? Now some of you are thinking, Well, why would
not forgive such a person who's been helping many people, including the Muslims, I'll give you an example.
You own a business and your business, you have two employees. One employee, he always shows up on time.
He's always there. You open at 10 o'clock in the morning, he's there at 930 is sweeping the floor. And he's you know, cleaning the windows, he's always on time.
And the other employee is a little bit lazy. For 30 days during the year, he's fasting. And he comes in at like 1030 1045.
And, you know, when it comes to sales with the customers, you know, half the time he's sleeping, he's got bad breath for 30 days of the year, you know, and he he's kind of lazy. And he leaves early sometimes because it says he's too tired. But the difference between these two employees is that the one who's always on time and makes all the sales. At the end of the month, when he goes to deposit the money in the bank for you as the owner. There's always about 25% of that money missing.
or 30%, or 50%, or whatever you want.
But the other person who's always half asleep, is tired. Who comes to work late? Whenever helps clean up?
When it comes time to depositing the money, every single penny every cent is accounted for.
Now how would you as a store owner, being the boss of these two employees? How would you treat these two?
You would look at the one who's always on time and say you know what, you're always on time. So what I can't pay my rent if you're stealing my money.
So what good you did for me is useless because you're doing so much good. But in the end, I still have nothing. You didn't appreciate what I gave to you. But the other one who was always late,
but he would always deposit his money on time. And every single penny was accounted for that employee you would tell him you know what, you slacked off a little bit lazy, you know you make mistakes, that you're a good employee. I like you. You give me all my money back. You know, so the two employees are human beings walking on this, this earth. One of them has a man in his heart and the other one doesn't. And the one who doesn't have a man, he's doing all this goodness, but in the hereafter all that goodness is worth absolutely
Nothing, because we did not do it for the sake of our last time, we didn't please the one that created you. But the one who was lazy and came to work, you know, 30 days a year is bad breath and so on. You know,
it was it was tough dealing with him as an employee, when you buy your BMW because of the money that you deposited in your bank account, and you bought the big house and your children went to school and colleges and universities and you were set, you were set. So the two are different and I hope you guys can see that if anybody can ask me about it later on Sharma
Eman helps us to differentiate between a Muslim and non Muslim. So the difference between a Muslim and non Muslim there are many different aspects but one of the most important ones is email. This is the difference between a Muslim and non Muslim, Allah Subhana. Allah says in Surah Nisa
clear clearly states for
those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and the books that were sent down in the scriptures and the date and the angels and the Day of Judgment. Those are the ones who have lost time with Allah books. And indeed, those who do not believe in that have strayed far, far away.
So the difference between one who believes and does not believe is a drastic difference.
And this reminds me now I'm going back to the beginning, when I said that there were a few incidents that happened, say on campus or off campus, I don't know where it was, but rather than just telling me about certain things, and I don't know who's involved, so please, don't attack me.
But all I want to say is that, you know, for somebody who has amen. If you do not agree with another brother, or sister, whether they're your brother or sister, or another guy or girl outside of Islam, you know, non Muslim, you do not have to resort to violence, you do not have to resort to solving the problem. And one of the things that's very interesting, my younger brother taught me this. He goes, you know,
in Canada, we have this issue where people that come up to you and they're just because you may look like a Muslim, you may have a beard on your face, even though you're Hindu or Sikh. When you have a beard and you wear a turban people think you're Muslim. Okay? So he told me this trick He's like, if someone comes up to you, and they start telling you like, get out of our country, Muslims are terrible. Do this do that, you know, they start talking to you really bad. He tells me he goes, will say anything back to you, man. Why arguing with people don't say anything back.
You know, just give them a little bit of doubt. Because they know, the best thing to do is just smile.
Just smile. I started thinking, you know, it was like, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us smile, because it is a form of charity. And when somebody's really upset if you try this next time, someone's really upsetting you getting in your face, just smile at them. You're gonna want to punch him. So after you smile, run the other way.
And if they're really getting in your face, just laugh like you did. laughs like they just told you a joke and walk off. They can get so furious. At that moment. They'll be really, really furious. What's gonna happen after that?
The next day or a week later, they're gonna think
what that guy was talking to him so bad.
And all he did was smile. He didn't say anything back. He just smiled at me and walked off. And he's gonna start to wonder, why did he smile? Why did you just do that? Why didn't you fight? You know, no other crazy people find that people? Why didn't he do that?
Personally, I never fought a fight in my life. I never got into any fights. Usually, when someone says something to me, I just walk off. And when it really gets to me because I like talking to my wife or something, you know, and this happens to me a lot. In Canada, especially people come up to you and tell you, you know, take that leash off your wife, don't treat her like a dog and stuff like that, you know?
That gets to me, but my brother tells me he's like, just calm down and just just laugh. And you'll see the difference. I'm telling you try it. You'll see the difference.
Brothers and sisters
times of distress, we always turn back to our boss and handle
all this turn back to a loss.
And this is something which is not hard to do at times of distress. I'll give you examples.
Picture this, you're on your flight going back home to your country. Okay? sure everyone here has been on a plane before. Even if you're just traveling back somewhere else. You're on the plane. you're traveling. Right?
You're watching a movie. eating your food, and listening to music. You're doing something you're not supposed to be doing. Okay? And all of a sudden, while you're sitting there chilling out.
The plane drops. It doesn't go to the ground. It just drops like a few 100 feet or 50 feet. turbulence. Okay, really, really severe turbulence. It hits you. What is the first thing that you hear echoing throughout the cabin of the airplane.
When I when I said this at you, I am one yelled it out at the same time. I was like, oh god, that's exactly what you hear. Now imagine like everyone sitting here and rules and it looks like you're inside a cabinet. And all of a sudden, that plane hits serious turbulence. Right really, really bad turbulence that the the flight attendant who's walking down the aisle, the cargo is racing to the back and smashes into the door. Everybody else? Oh, oh God, we're Oh my god, you know, or Jesus or something, whatever they believe in, but they they call out to God.
That's a time of distress. And that just proves to us the fifth or
the fifth. The natural way that we were created.
And I came up with something very interesting with regards to the fifth.
If we translate to English one of the words you can come up with
natural disposition. Anything else? Any natural inclination? Okay. Anything else?
instinct. Okay. Sometimes sisters.
Okay, I came up with this really good term.
And it fits perfectly.
Everybody has one of these cell phone. Right?
on one interaction that I feed off of, you guys are half asleep. I'm falling asleep seriously, like, go sleep. So everybody has a cell phone in their pocket by first hand. Some of them are texting right now.
Okay, everyone has a cell phone.
Who here has gone a Nokia phone before in their life?
I got the
one thing that's unique on the Nokia,
When you change all your settings, right on one day, you get fed up with all your settings.
And you're like, how do I change it back to the date? How do I change it back to how it was the day
you put it back to default mode or factory settings for those of you that have Sony
so you put your phone back to default mode. default mode is how your phone was created. Right?
Everyone's like assignments to finish
so you put your phone back to default mode. And now what happens it runs just like the day but it right perfectly sent text message in three seconds. message sent. This is good. Someone calls you their picture shows up right away Whoa, it's working fast when Alma settings was like send a text message got to wait 30 seconds, finally sent another message you know, so when you say your phone back to default mode, he goes back to the original state. It starts to work faster. it wipes out all that nonsense they had on there all the pictures and movies and ringtones and whatever. it wipes it all off. And you now have
human beings came in a default mode as well. Not built by Nokia, oh,
Allah created us in the most beautiful and most complete way.
No other being that walks on the face of this earth has what we have.
We have a brain, we have common sense. So philosophers say we don't have common sense, right? telling you that.
But we have common sense. And we came in a default mode. And when times get really bad, you know, when you're in the turbulence of that airplane, everyone ruins their lives into default mode. And they start going back to God, and asking God to help them and praying. And for those that don't pray to God, they usually lean over and they're like, excuse me? Are you a Muslim? Yeah. Can you pray for me that nothing happens if
you're Muslim, right yet, please pray for me. You see that? You see that on the plane, I travel a lot. I get it, trust me, it happens.
So this default mode that Allah Subhana Allah created us in is what we are trying to go back to.
We're all always trying to get back to our default mode. That is like someone who goes for Hajj. And you know, everyone says, you go for Hajj, you come back, the slate is wiped clean. Okay, it's like you're a newborn baby. You want to go back to that newborn baby status. And sometimes you feel like you've committed so many crimes in your life. You feel like what you've done. There is no way it is absolutely impossible that it must Palatine is going to forgive you. Well, guess what? Allah subhana wa tada can forgive you will not forgive you.
There's only one thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not forgive.
And I'm sure most of you know that. This is a loss of Hamlet Ida does not forgive ship. He does not forgive those that render partners to a love. Whether it is through intercession, you know, you're seeking help from an idol or worthy God or something. asking lots of data for something through that person, going to a grave worshiping the grave, all of these things are no no's. Do not do that. And in order to reset yourself to default mode, you have to rid yourself of it, you have to get away from all these bad things that you were doing.
But always remember, in the back of your mind, you can always go back to default mode, have lots of bandwidth, Adam wants you to go back to default mode. It is only up to you to do it. It is up to us. If we want to clean that slate and wipe it clear and start off fresh. We have to just do it. Just do it. That's all
people wear Nikes Just do it.
Brothers and sisters, I'll give you an example of somebody
who is in a way related to me.
We just passed away about a week ago.
This is my mother's sister. So my end her father in law. Okay, so my father in law or my uncle's father.
He's not Muslim. By the way, for those of you that are wondering why I keep saying certain people are not listening. My mother accepted Islam. So my mother is the only person in her family that is Muslim. Everybody on her on her side of family is not Muslim. So her my aunt's father in law, okay, he just passed away about 10 days ago.
And before he passed away, he was in a hospital receiving treatment. He was 102 years old. And he was laying down on the hospital bed. And his daughters were not Muslim as well came and they were sitting on his bed, you know, they're elderly as well, maybe around 6065 70 years old. And they're singing songs to him. The same songs that they sang when they were little kids that he used to sing to them. Okay, this is a non Muslim household of talking about and the sitting on his bed, singing the songs to him.
And all of a sudden, you know, at the end of each song, he smiles, he just says, you know, go on. So he starts to sing another one and they continue doing this doing this for a couple of hours.
At one point in time,
he's he sits up off the bed
and he just yells out his his wife's name is what passed away a few years.
His back, he yells out his wife's name. And he leans back
and passes away.
His daughters that were sitting with him said that before this happened, he was having a really hard time breathing. And every time he finished, they finished a song, he would like cough.
They thought it meant, you know, keep singing, keep singing. But what do we know, from reading the some of the profits in the long run,
that the soul of the non believer, soul of a non Muslim is taken out, it is ripped out really, really hard.
comes up, very, very tough.
And so when I heard this story, as my mother said, described to me keep going describe to me like what happened, what was going on? And it sounds exactly like what we read in the sealer. When someone's soul is ripped out, they're in so much pain. And this is a man who's dying, and he's in so much pain. And then he's about to die, and his soul is just coming out. And what does he yellow, there's a yellow, because yellow that he died,
he yells out the name of his wife passed away, like 20 years ago.
Is that the way that you want to leave this world?
Do you want to leave this world not to remember a lot, you want to leave this world with people sitting around you on their on your bed singing songs to you? Do you want to be this world struggling with your soul pulling it as it's being pulled out, is not the way you want to be in this world. I definitely don't want to be this way. And I don't think anybody sitting here wants to the fact that you all showed up here means that you're looking to wake up, because you're all falling asleep right now. wrote a lot of assignments, and you want to wake up. So let's make up a little bit, okay.
For us, as human beings, we are proof of creation, we are proof of creation, we are created. And for those that say, we are not created, there is no creator, let me ask you this.
As human beings, okay, we're either created
out of nothing,
or we're created
out of ourselves, or somebody created us. And you take the first one, either we are created out of nothing. So you're trying to tell me that you're created out of nothing?
Where did you come from?
Nothing. Okay. So if you say a free day out of nothing, and human being is about to just
walk on out of the floor, it
doesn't make sense.
If we created ourselves, then that means we would be cloning people today. And obviously, we're not calling anybody because they still haven't figured that out. And they will never figure that out. There's no way you can clone another person. Okay. And that leads us to the last one, which means that somebody must have created us.
Okay, there has to be a creator. And this creator is not a human being, this creator is a must.
This creator is the one that gave us as I said, something unique, that no other creation has the ability to differentiate between what is right and wrong. And the ability to differentiate between when we're supposed to do something, and when we're supposed to hold ourselves back. So this is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala has gifted us with, we know that we are not created by ourselves, we know we did not just magically appear out of the ground, we know that it was created us. Now the fact that he created us means we have to fulfill certain things. And one of the things that we have to do is put our trust in the last panel at all times. As you know,
if you're sitting down after this lecture, you're sitting outside what's that restaurant?
you're sitting down by the restaurant.
Okay, because a lot of you don't know what a restaurant, okay? So you're sitting down by the restaurant.
while you're sitting there
a fly comes, lands on your food.
Right now, it's disgusting.
Why lands on your food
and you don't brush them off right away because you're putting food in your mouth and then you look down and you realize there's a fly on my food. So you're gonna brush off the flood, but the fly ate some of your food.
He ate some of your food. How you gonna get that food back from your flight.
You can beat him up
to do that, or you can give him Heimlich maneuver like
trying to get that food.
There's no way you can get that food back. And there's no way you're going to try to get food back from a fly. You're not going to do it. Why? Because first of all, it's such a small amount. Second of all, even though it's such a small amount, probably won't even argue. You didn't want to eat food that came back out of the stomach on the fly. Okay, but my point is Allah subhana wa, tada created that fly. And if you say that you are, you know, capable and you have powers to do certain things. We'll ask you, where you ask those people that say those things.
The exact same thing, he just asked you to get your food back from the fly, and see what they say. Try, try and make them come up with some strange thing. I'm sure Nan's gonna try it
breaking down right now they're going to eat after.
For people who are flies into food, we're gonna wait for the flight to come and look for people who already have a flight.
It wasn't sisters, the profits on a lot more it was send them said, whoever's last statement,
a lot, different agenda. Whoever's the last words coming out of their mouth is not a lot will enter gentlemen will enter Paradise. But at that moment, as you know from the story, it just related, it is very, very hard for a person to say that
they're struggling with their soul.
So this is why you have to live every single part of your day. According to how aubusson wants you to I told you, I'm not going to talk about fifth. I'm not going to talk about saga. I'm talking about using your mind. I want you to recognize the signs of a loss of habitat around you at all times. Recognize that a loss of hand was added created you he created those fish that swim in that pond out there. He created those beautiful birds, some birds there. I don't know if any of you saw it. But I saw birds drinking from the water in the rain. It looked so beautiful of us pandadoc created those birds. Why? Why did he create them? Why did the rain come down and for some people
that rain is terrible because they have to walk in and get soaked. For other people that look at it was a beautiful day it's raining. It's beautiful rains nice and cool. It's not so hot and humid.
Las panatela created those things and signs for us to recognize the power of a loss pattern without his abilities. His strength.
He gives he takes if Allah subhanho wa Taala after this rainfall that just fell. If he stopped the rain from falling for the next 50 years, what would happen to Malaysia?
You study ecology or
vironment, no shade, no shade.
In fact, to die
What else everyone would leave.
Nothing would be able to survive, except for a few species.
And that's the power of robust with rain that sometimes we complain about. Sometimes the rain is falling out of the stream, and when is it going to stop?
And you laugh, but it's true. The reason why you're laughing is because you know, you've said it at least once before
I say it, you know sometimes I say and I catch myself I feel sometimes I remember when I was in Saudi Medina for a number of years. Sometimes it was rain once for the entire year, the entire year. Trust me when it rains that one time everybody's out in the rain. Everyone's like, yeah, it's raining. I'm coming to pick you up. Everyone's like going to pick up their friends are driving in the rain. It's beautiful. It's a blessing from the last panel. And for those that don't have it, they realize what they were missing. And for those that have it, they will never realize its importance until they lose it until that rain is lost and everyone has to sell the property.
Everybody sells their cars and everyone closes down the shops and they move away from this line.
You only realize the power of a loss. When you lose something. When you lose a loved one. As I said in the beginning, you realize the power of a loss without that person is gone. There's nothing on the face of this earth that you can possibly do.
To bring them back, you can cut open their chest, put in a heart from someone who's alive, dead, change their lungs dead, take off their toenails and put on nice toenails and fingernails dead. Give them a, you know, artificial hair implant still dead. There's nothing that you can do absolutely nothing that you can do to bring that person back. Nothing.
It is what it takes. And it is a lot of gifts, and nobody can touch that our
brothers and sisters moussaka is sticking with the walk. Remember we said whoever dies and the last statement is
a lot of explanation that goes with that you also have to believe in a long way to get to that.
used to be able to talk to a boss correct.
Or wake you up, do some activities.
We're not gonna throw any heavy bags or sisters or anything.
Like last year,
he was able to talk to about the Prophet Moses. He could talk to a lost paradise.
And he told the last panel that either once he turned to a lot he said, yo
I want to teach I want you to teach me something that I can call you upon or call upon you.
Teach me something with which I can call upon you.
So awesome Hamlet's Allah tells moussaka Sam says oh Moosa, c'est la Ilaha in the pot. So musala salon is like
oh my lord, the entire creation says this.
Everyone says that you know, I want something specific, something special, something that I can call you with. So Allah subhana wa tada says, Moosa say that
and then masayoshi son of again says Don't be I wanted something that is specific for me not something that everybody else already says I want something for me. So Allah Subhana Allah says, yeah Moosa say the
and then last time with Allah says almost know that the entire creation was placed if it was placed on one side of a scale Okay, we had a scale and we put the entire creation
on that side of the scale
and you took this calendar let you know in the law and you put it on the other side of the scale without wait the entire creation that you know in the law would outweigh the entire creation.
So, brothers and sisters
I need to wake some people up
brothers and sisters, this county mother in law's very important very heavy
and I will give you an example of how heavy this cutting
because some of your thinking is just something which is recited something which is written down, let you know.
I will tell you the Hadith of the 99 scrolls, who does not know this ID
does not know that.
Okay, that's better if everybody knows that I'll just walk.
Okay, so the idea of the 99 scrolls, there was this, this man on the judgment, who was brought before a loss of handling data, okay, this man will be brought in front of a lot.
he will last panel which I will order the angels to bring the books of bad deeds of this person, and there will be in the form of scrolls. Everybody knows what a scroll is, right? It's like pieces of paper rolls from both ends and you're unrolling okay?
These scrolls, 99 of them. If you unroll them, each one goes as far as your eyes can see.
So you look to the left, and all you can see is the horizon and your scroll is just going over and you
Look to the right, and you see the horizon. And that scroll is just rolling over the horizon.
And learning 99 of them 99 scrolls of bad deeds of sins that was committed by this person 99 of them.
And the last panel to Allah asks that first lesson, I will ask the person, do you deny that these are not true?
Do you deny that the scrolls of your sins all 99 of them rolled out to the edges of the horizon? Do you deny that these are not true?
And that person will say, No, I don't. It's true.
And the last panel to ask, do my angels do some kind of injustice by collecting these scrolls from you? And the person will say, No, they don't do any injustice. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, will ask a third question, Do you have something good to show me? And the person will say, No, I don't have anything good to show you. Nothing, not a single Good thing I can show you.
And I must
you do have a good deed, you do have a good deed, and a lot some kind of a title order
the card to be brought, what is this?
It's somebody telling you that this is a
business card. In Arabic, we call this a
right? To speak, department.
This is a business card is a card.
This is the IDs of
the 99 schools are lots of hands on with either will ask the card to be brought forth. And on that card is written
in the law.
a loss of handlers will show it to the person and they will see that the law written on this card.
And a lot of just finished telling the person you have one good deed. But you're looking at these 99 scrolls, and you're like
99 schools of bad deeds.
One little card that says that you know.
And the last panel is out of order those 99 scrolls to be put on one side of the scale.
And when they're placed on that one side of the scale, he will ask the angels to place this developer on the other side of the scale is card that says layout and whatnot this actual card.
This is a friend of mine,
he will ask for this card to be placed.
And the angel will place it on that scale. Look at what happens to this card when it falls. This card says that you know in the law, correct? Yes, when this card falls
doesn't look like a feather
from a bird that just falls.
But this card with a net, you know in the return on it on the day of judgments, when it falls on that scale.
On that side of the scale, it will outweigh the 99 scrolls, throwing them up into the air. That is how heavy that person's been pocketing their card of net.
On the day of judgment, this does not mean written in the book, it does not mean you walk out the door and say I believe in a
good set paradise, you actually have to believe in it. You have to live your life according to that, you know in the wall left you know in the wall has to be running through your veins, it has to be something that you want something that you see and you appreciate this is from a loss of power. And when you look at this auditorium and you think human beings built this, but everything that is here was provided by a loss of handler with the technology that we have of loss of conduits either provided the shoes that we wear came from a loss of
the hair that grows on our head, a loss of
the eyes that we see with the nose that we smell the beautiful food with the taste buds that we taste beautiful like Monday and wherever maybe they are cooking for supper later on. It tastes good. All of that is from almost
recognizing the most important ones and that is something that we have to do brothers and sisters.
This card of the law is something which you know, some brothers thought okay, keep this in
The wallet because I want to have a lot of money in my pockets maybe
it's not my keeping my pocket This is for
example, because I use this example a lot.
Amen brothers and sisters,
as the profits on is 70 something levels,
there are over 70 levels at
the highest level is that, you know, believing in a loss of data fulfilling the requirements of this religion that we follow. And the lowest level of Eman is to remove something which is harmful from the walkway from the pathway of others. So, if you're walking down the street and you move something out of the way that may be harmful to somebody that is making your beef off of that a lot heavier and heavier and heavier on the Day of Judgment.
But if you do not do those little things, smiling to others, being polite, avoiding fights, you know, doing good things, spreading good amongst you, amongst your co workers, your fellow students. Those are all things which will make this vodka fall heavier than a feather.
That is what we're working towards brothers and sisters.
Now I want you to ask yourselves again. Do you love a loss of handle more time? Do you really love a loss of handling?
Now, this is something you have to ask yourself individually.
Is anybody here married?
Is anybody here married? Soon as hell which?
You have a wife?
Nobody. And you guys need to set up some marriage thing I told you this last year.
You have like
at least half of the brothers can get married tonight.
Brothers and sisters. I want to use somebody as an example. Somebody was married.
But there's nobody married here. Is anybody engaged?
No, no. I need somebody who's not shy somebody who's like, yeah, I can speak in front of others.
Everyone worked up.
Okay, I know my good friend picked up picked me up in my house.
came out as I was enjoying the scenery outside.
you're engaged now?
Okay, the sake of this example.
I've known you and I have standing here. Okay. Pretend. Pretend that we're married couple.
Okay. So pretend for the sake of this example. I am your wife.
You're the husband, the wife, your husband. We're standing together over the waters of Linn County.
You guys have been to
DC pictures right? Yeah.
So like Kelly, nice and beautiful.
barefoot so she was on
In the water is nice and blue in this glittering distance to see where the door is in distance.
And I want you to describe for me
the beauty of that son
is related to me as a wife.
My dear wife
To you and just just say something
to you in the morning, when I wake up in the morning, in the morning, it feels
I just risen. And when you leave me for your book, my book
The night is gone.
I will see you again tomorrow.
So you just described your love for me by watching the sunset over the horizon, like Kelley Blue Water, nice and warm sand between our toes.
So you really love your wife and that that scene is like something you can't wait to take your real life.
Waiting for a guy
after the husband, describing his love his wife by watching the beautiful rays of the sun radiates through the horizon, and glitter off the water. The husband says back the wife says to the husband.
I love you. 99%. And then both the neighbor 1%
the first day first Yeah.
See, see what I mean brothers and sisters. Our love cannot be 99% for a loss.
It has to be 100%. If you're loving alone, 99% How do you think a love feels with you? When we just use an example of a husband and wife and the husband wants a golden light to it's time to open up a fight or something? It's time to do something. That's how the husband feels? How do you think of lots of hand without a fuse when you and your actions and your behavior in the way that you live? You only show
less than 100% of love to us. How do you feel? How do you think of lost data fields with you the amount of love that you give him and then the amount that you give to others.
Brothers and sisters, this is why it is important for it
inside and all the brothers to get married.
Just remember this, okay? When you get married, remember the 99% and the 1%. And two years after your marriage, remember that 99% and 1%. And when you have a child, remember the 99% of the 1%. And try to put those things in your life. All of these things that you've been you're here that we talked about together, just remember them. And the most important thing to you the one that touches your heart the most write it down, take a card, someone's business card, they're probably going to throw in the garbage. Take it use the back of it to write something that touched your heart. Make use of that piece of paper that's in your pocket, doing nothing. Take it out, read something
important on it, and keep that with you and take it out every week and just look at it and read it and try to implement that thing in your life. That is how you're going to increase yourself in building a stronger
I want to take up too much time because
I know you love questions and answers.
So I just want to give you two more examples.
And then we'll get into that I want all of you to imagine.
Imagine right now, you know, you wake up in the morning, you graduated from the United University of Nottingham, you're living in another country, first world country, so called.
And you're living in that country, you're a businessman or businesswoman, a doctor or lawyer, whatever it may be, get up in the morning, get dressed, Javelin good. Comb your beard, put some gel in it. Okay. As you make your stock, your morning stocks as we do every day, Monday to Friday, make your stop at Starbucks. Just using Starbucks, for example. Do you make your stop there, you get your coffee doubleshot latte with caramel whipped cream on top hazelnut.
Okay, and you're walking to work, you
walk into the office, you start work on the third floor, fourth floor,
this high rise building. And while you're working,
whether it's an earthquake, or an airplane, or whatever it may be, that building crumbles to the ground.
And you're sitting at your desk
one second before it crumbles.
And you're just doing the same thing you do every single day. The exact same thing. And now that building comes down on you. And you're, you know, the building crumbled, and you're probably on the ground level now. But you're still alive.
You're still alive.
But you're laying underneath that Rubble, all that, you know, cement walls have crumbled, and there's bricks everywhere. And you're stuck underneath. What is the first thing that you're going to do in that situation? What would you do?
spray for me.
sisters, first sister right there. Oh, God.
Pray to God.
You're sitting up in the back there writing the big glasses.
What would you do?
hamdulillah it's good that we have these intentions that we want to do this. But honestly speaking, when a building crumbles, you think you're sitting down right now? This building crumbles? What would you do?
Thank you. Okay. When I asked you the first time, what would you do? Would you start thinking, but if the building came down, what would you do? You would yell, you'd be like,
help you right? That's what you want. You want someone to help you.
But no, you picture yourself in that situation. You're yelling and screaming and nobody's coming.
Now you start thinking about
that now you're stuck under there. Nobody heard you.
Nobody saw you.
Nobody even knows you're under there. In fact, they probably have hundreds of dead people lying around you. But you survived. But you're stuck.
And you start to pray to
start to pray.
Before you started to pray, before you did anything, you could have been one of those dead people laying next to you, because of injuries from walls and ceilings. But you are alive. So I'll give you that opportunity to think of him again. And to recite the Shahada to say that, you
know, think you're stuck under there for five days. Nobody even knows you're there. But they're digging and digging and hope to find somebody and this happened recently in Turkey during the earthquake. And they found somebody I think after five or seven days still alive, they found someone and
that is a blessing from the loss of heaven.
To find somebody still alive underneath the building that just collapsed. That is a blessing from the Lord.
But what is more important is that the person is there. And there's nothing with them. Except evil, corrupt. Destruction around the building collapse or maybe fire the rain, the water flushing
All these things in our minds are real terrible, real bad, we don't want to be in that situation, right. So you're left with one solution. Turning to a bus account one time, when all doors have been closed, all doors have been closed, there's only one way out. And that way is with a love. So when you have many doors of evil, this door as evil that door as evil that door is if you can go and take any one of them. But when you close all the doors of evil on you, there's only one place where you resort to. And that's with a loss of habitat. So by closing those doors of evil in your life, by staying away from things that are how long by staying away from evils, by interacting with people in
a good way, spreading goodness, being kind, being nice to others, and avoid all kinds of evil, whether it's cheating, stealing wine, you know, anger, all of those things, close the doors, there's only one door left for you. As the door goodness, Android leads you straight into genuine success. Nothing left for you. No Evil, nothing, just goodness is left three
brothers and sisters. The profits of a long riding with some of them said that he swore by a lot. He says I swear by what I have left you upon a clear road. It's night is like it's day.
No one can deviate from this road, except the one who is destroyed. Now picture yourself. You're driving
as an as a Beemer
BMW, you're not driving custom BMW driving a brand new BMW.
driving a brand new one. There's no problems with it. And there's no reason for any mistakes to go wrong. Or any problems to go to happen. Certainly no reason whatsoever. So what you're doing is you're driving down the highway going to KL, and it's daytime, there's no rain, you know, and the streetlights are on just to help you up. Okay. And there's no harm in the middle of the road there. No cars, nothing, absolutely nothing. It's a straight road, you're dropping. Is there anything, any reason why you would swerve off of that road?
can you possibly think of any reason that you would swerve off that road? Why he was worried about that.
But if there's no problems with the car, nothing, everything is fine. It's 100%. It's like the most ideal situation.
nothing falls, there's nothing to fall.
You're not gonna die
driving and there's absolutely nothing to happen.
Exactly, you see what's happening, none of you can figure out what is going to come in your way. Because there is nothing to come in your way. As the head he said, The road is clear. It's night is like it's day, it is so obvious.
What you need to do is realize that the only thing that can deviate you from this road, is you yourself, swerving the steering wheel far to the right or far to the left, that you actually swerve or veer off the road and deviate yourself, there's nothing else you yourself are the one that is going to be held accountable. You are the one that deviates yourself, you're the one in control of that steering wheel, you can either hold it straight and go straight to K out or swerve off the rope. And that is an example of a person who deviates, either you yourself work at deviating yourself or you know, you keep yourself on that straight path. And you go straight to gender
roles and sisters.
Were supposed to talk about the importance of study. And a lot of you are like these.
These little talk about studies, please don't talk about exams. But it's very important for you to either only take maybe two minutes, very important for you to study. Why do you need to study in
order to profit so the longer you have to ask for one thing.
He ordered him to ask for one thing. And that is knowledge of the Sydney in a law ask the seller to increase him in one thing, knowledge. The knowledge that you're seeking here may not be Islamic knowledge, but your knowledge can be used to benefit the Muslim from your knowledge can be used to help others in the future. With your human with your belief with your help with your strength. You can
make the world a better place, both for Muslims and phenomenal Muslims. When the world is a better place for non Muslims, they look at the reasons why, how did this happen? who contributed to it, they look at the Muslims, they succeeded. They were success, you look at examples of those, you look at examples of the Muslims in Iraq, they were leading in knowledge and so on, you look at those examples, and you think all of these things I can do as well, we can do together. So study hard, put the effort in, there's only two or three weeks left, and then your exams are done. This is the time we need to burn the midnight oil. This is the time where your eyes are red, and it feels good. You
feel good at the end of the day, like you know, I put in the effort, you get the marks off, they're like, yes, a stroke heart. I did good. And now what are you going to do?
Keep in mind that everything that you do is for the sake of a loss of control without Of course I don't want to take up much time. Everything you do this for the sake of a lot. you purify your intention for the sake of almost?
No, not please come here.
okay, just stand here.
Sisters, what did I just do?
You can ask them to give you
what I just did is give you an example.
One of them,
I gave a ring it with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The other one I gave a ring it with the intention of showing off to all of you. I'm super rich, give them a ring it.
Can you tell the difference?
Was there a difference in the way that I gave them the money? Was there a difference in the way that they took the money? Was there a difference in the sum of money?
the only difference there was my intention. And I'm not saying that I did one act for it. I'm doing this for the sake of an example to all of you, that we can do things to please help us patent data in the exact same way that we do it not to please the last panel. So when you study for your exams, keep in mind every single day, every time you open another book, I'm doing this to please the last panel. And to help those in the future. If I'm becoming an engineer, I'm going to design buildings, I'm going to design massage and I'm going to come up with something that's good for the Muslim Ummah in the in, in the near future. When I go back to my country, when I go somewhere, I'm going to use
that knowledge in a beneficial way. If you're good in technology and using that technology to benefit the oma to spread heavy even if it's across the internet to reach others in other countries use that knowledge in a good way. But to end their job. I don't want to take too much of your time. And no, we don't have much time for question and answers. Good. So
anyone has any questions supposed to be written down?
Okay, you're going to witness?
Sisters, I honestly thought we had about 15 minutes left. But it seems as though you guys were thirsty and hungry that you want to ask questions, such as you know, standing outside or even Chava if anyone wants to ask him questions, you can do that. Please forgive me for taking up any of your time or extra time. For those of you that may have offended or done anything wrong, please forgive me. And anything that I did, which was good came from a hospital in Toronto, which is
