What is the meaning of soccer very important for us to understand zeker chiamata normally we say zeker is for us to repeat the name of Allah, the attributes of Allah, the greatness of Allah to take the name of Allah Allahu Akbar Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah. To repeat that without this Bs, we feel that is only seeker up seeker. That is also seeker. I'm not saying it is not seeker. Let's remember that Allah tala kineme are all soft key will turn on

There is remembering Allah, because you are doing the right thing at the right time because of Allah. Brothers, this is the men men that is what seeker is. And this particular type of seeker, Allah has him it is the

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

greatest aspect one of

00:14:16--> 00:14:38

the greatest aspect is to remember life or times. Now the opposite sometimes you understand certain things by the opposite. What is the opposite of xikar? Allah in the Quran is made mention of two phrases, which in reality is the opposite of xikar. One is nice young and one is reflect. Reflect is perhaps more serious, then.

will not be like those who forget Allah in in the process he forgets himself. Howard, what life can they be for someone who forgets Allah, Who is neglectful of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is one of the tragedies of the Western civilization, that they're forgotten Allah. These, they don't remember law, they don't want to remember law, they can take it if anyone remembers a law, you know, has it marvelous and that we use Kitab Islam in the world, If only you could read that section only speaks about the harm of Western civilization. And he said there is no aspect of remembrance of Allah in the life. He gives one or two examples. He said in the World War Two, that when they used

00:15:45--> 00:16:29

to be you know, sirens that spoke about the bombs about to fall in London. Initially people used to withdraw, right and they used to be in the cinemas or they used to be they work and they used to go in the bunkers afterwards, in the cinemas. When the sirens used to come. Let it come. We will still watch our cinema. We will still watch our movies. So So neglectful so hitless death will come, they want to do and to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and the other one is referred to to be hitless of Allah. And Allah says in the Quran, Allah will fall Jana mala Katara knowledge Johanna Mata theorem in Elgin they were in a novel full Johanna was which type of people Lulu hula if

they will have eyes but they will not see Allah subhanho wa Taala they will not see the law when Omar you will know him sooner.

00:16:45--> 00:16:53

They will have years but they will not listen to the commands and the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala Quran super

00:17:24--> 00:18:03

Sometimes it can happen but waqia Matura there's a very important you know, incident, that level of humor in it, that a person was going to sell his horse go to Disney College Aleta and someone told him by so where are you going? I'm going to the Monday I'm going to the bazaar I'm gonna sell my house, buy say say inshallah, say inshallah, I'm gonna sell my house don't say I'm gonna sell my house isn't what you say everything inshallah everything inshallah, idea is the horse days the market people are selling the horse I will go and sell the horse day in the market, what am I say inshallah, on the way someone stole his horse. So there was nothing to sell. So, when he was coming

00:18:03--> 00:18:17

back, the person asked him and said, What happened? What happened? He said, inshallah, I was going, inshallah, my horse was also what me inshallah someone stole my horse and inshallah everything went finished. So then say inshallah,

00:18:19--> 00:18:29

inshallah, Shannon, and brothers, this word, insha. Allah is not only let me repeat it, it's not only to let the Jamaat go away from your house.

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

inshallah is, it's a motto. When the Fulani militia in

00:18:36--> 00:19:25

Iran de la casa de Illa, Yasha Allah, it's, it's our motto, I will not be able to do anything in the next minute, in the next day, except if Allah wills this inshallah, that we just say routinely, it makes it hits at our heart brothers, that nothing can happen in our life without color. So my brothers, this is a very, very important point devotee aspects with regard to Seeker let me just get it why why do we remember loss Hunter wattana you know this seeker is very important. It has many benefits. The more you love something, the more you will remember it. The more you love, love, the more you must remember Allah subhanaw taala And do you know what amazing thing is?

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

remember you, it comes in dreams

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

come towards Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala a little while and that Allah will come to you more, you come to Allah subhanho wa Taala you know a hand spit letter will come through, you know, you come to a small hand and letter will come through the entire end. You remember that Allah in solitude, Allah remembering the gathering of the angels. First qurani The more you love Allah The more you will remember Allah subhana wa

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

It lightens every burden. It is immunity from default. It is immunity from hypocrisy. In Manasa, Tina Johar the owner Allahu wa hodja. Makati. Oh wait acabo de la strada, kombu Santa Yura una nurse. Well, una de la la kalila the munafo gets up for Salah leisurely, he remembers Allah very little. So, if you remember Allah in abundance it means you are not a hypocrite.

00:20:35--> 00:20:43

Because the hypocrite remembers Allah very little. If you remember line abundance, it is immunity from hypocrisy monaci Allah tala

to jo zyada zeker crago Mona Lisa. So, this is aspect then another aspect with regard to Seeker it is objective of everybody. Welcome is salata, Lee decree established solid, solid Cooper Lee victory for the remembrance of Allah.

00:21:04--> 00:21:44

Everybody to do? It is for the sake of Allah. Why do you keep fast La La Quinta takuan to fear Allah subhanho wa Tada. And then one of the greatest aspects My dear respected brothers, which is such an important thing zeker keeps us away from sin. One day, Omar, a theologian who was lost and he came to a cross, he was in a desert, he was going somewhere. And he found a person who has had many sheep, Homer started testing him and said, Give me one of your sheep. I'm hungry, I need it, I will give you something, you can go and tell your boss that no sheep got lost in the desert, it happens many times. It happens many times. So you can get whatever you want, I will get whatever I want. And

00:21:44--> 00:22:00

in this particular way, no one will bear no one will lose. You know, we see, you know, a win win situation, a win win situation. And he turned on and he said, find a law with a law in this whole situation. Find a law What about a law? So

00:22:01--> 00:22:12

as long as there are people like the sinners who remain steadfast, it will keep you away from sin because Allah is watching me, whether other people are watching me or not. And Allah, Allah

00:22:13--> 00:22:53

let me conclude with this point zeker of Allah gives us It means none of it gives us that contentment. Now, there are two types of contentment, it gives us serenity, it gives us tranquility. You see, there are two types of one to one was aspect I asked you for your concentration. There are two types of tranquility. One tranquility comes about because everything is going well in your life. So you've got a high standard of living, you are smug, you are arrogant, because of that. Your business is going well. You got a lot of wealth, you've got a lot of resources, you know, so you have a high standard of living, you have resources at your disposal, you have influence, if you

00:22:53--> 00:23:45

will, you have fame people talk highly about you, you even feel that Listen, I can continue this I can always spend money to always get these benefits. That is a type of tranquility, that in reality is short lived and false because Allah can pull the plug away. There's another type of tranquility and that tranquility comes that Allah is the one that controls every aspect of the universe. It happens with his knowledge and His justice. And whatever he is his decision, I will submit to it. Allah basically law he took mine your code that is the real tranquility. It is like if anything happens in Angkor Wat Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, praise me to align all circumstances, that

00:23:45--> 00:23:52

type of it meaning, that types of satisfaction only comes with the remembrance of Allah, Allah the decree law,

00:23:54--> 00:24:10

with the remembrance of Allah will tell me Allah make us among such that we all the time, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala Remember, all your doors, mighty respect of others, you know these doors we sometimes take for life, when you start getting Bismillah Alhamdulillah
