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

Alhamdulillah enough men who wanna say you know who

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

will be here when I

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

when I want to be learning in surah and fusina on siata Medina, Maria de la De La Hoya UT la la tierra monisha La ilaha illallah wa la sharika shadow, Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu alayhi wa he was happy woman died without what he learned with the

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

beloved brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

Hello Swan Watada speaks in the Holy Quran Allah says

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

in

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

the Quran

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

obon wakaba Allah tala fu in Accra maka man de la casa

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

so the caladium Allah Yeah, this is the whole of humanity, all of his creation.

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

And he says oh mankind

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

I've created you from male and female.

00:01:09--> 00:01:15

And I've made you into tribes and nations that you may understand each other. In kurama C'mon de la jolla.

00:01:19--> 00:01:23

And the most honor the view in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

are those who have the most.

00:01:28--> 00:01:38

So Allah gracias in this verse in terms of the taqwa which we develop as we are obedient and show our obedience to Allah, his messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

But today inshallah

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

I want to

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

look at

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

how we see each other, and how we see ourselves

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

and how Allah subhanaw taala features

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

and

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

what are the foundations of our success?

00:02:12--> 00:02:18

Obviously, more in the year after the year, but also year in this dunya success in this world and our success in the after.

00:02:22--> 00:02:29

When our predecessors spoke about success, and when I say predicts is the mean from the time we're gonna be so solemn until now.

00:02:31--> 00:02:38

They did not speak about success in terms of what they've accumulated in life

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

or what they own in life

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

all the things which they are associated with in life,

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

but the success

00:02:52--> 00:03:15

was the success of the hearts and inshallah we'll try and explain this concept today. There is access was not an accumulation of degrees or money, or positions in society. No, that was not how they measure their success. Their success was measured by their hearts.

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

So

00:03:19--> 00:03:27

our success lies in how we embrace the life which Allah subhanaw taala is given to us.

00:03:30--> 00:03:37

And the life which allows farmers given to us is not only a taste for us, we know Allah says in many verses the foreign

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

that this life is a test for us.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

Senator Barack,

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

what is the opening line?

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

I can't hear the full line from the beginning.

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

Nobody

00:04:02--> 00:04:07

tabarka levy big molk. Bow Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

Allah Allah says, and have created life and death.

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

To see to test which of you are the best.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

And in other words, our last song Allah says

00:04:26--> 00:04:49

that he is not created as except as a test. Creation is a test. But most of life is also a gift from allows parameter. Life is not only a test from Allah, but life is a biggest gift that we have without life, we would we be nothing like we were 100 years ago, what 100 years ago 100 years ago was zero.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Loss answer's no for we're not even a name. We weren't even mentioned. We were absolute zero and maybe in 100 years time

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

It will be different. So this life has been given to us as a gift from our last panel.

00:05:08--> 00:05:17

And the whole of life that Allah has given to us whether it's 60 years or 70 years, or whatever Allah gives to us, which Allah May Allah give us a long life,

00:05:18--> 00:05:30

in goodness, long life in goodness. So the whole of life is how we embrace this gift which allows has given to us I know many of us are very ungrateful for this gift of life who always complained

00:05:31--> 00:05:37

about the sickness of that sickness, I would haven't got this and Allah give me that.

00:05:40--> 00:05:50

So life is about gratitude to allow subhanaw taala for the gift, which is given to us, great gift.

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

And we know that,

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

that the thing that is the greatest loss for a person is his life.

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

You lose your life, you lose everything,

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

allows for having created us all the same.

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

We are all alike.

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

Today,

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

we live

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

in a kind of environment where everything that we do, and CNA is against that principle, that we're not alike.

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

People want to go on Facebook, why they're on Facebook, because they want to show the rest of the world that they're not the same as the rest of the world.

00:06:31--> 00:06:40

That's basically why they they, they don't look like the rest of the world. They don't speak back to the rest of the world. They don't have the same habits as the rest of the world. They are absolutely unique.

00:06:42--> 00:07:00

That's what Facebook is about. That is the veneer that we love under some dream utopian dream that you have, that we are so different, hello. Yet we all Allah created us all alike. So today what we have in the United States, we have racial profiling, we have religious profiling.

00:07:03--> 00:07:18

We are defined by how others see us. People see as Muslim, radical Islamic terrorists are the CSS angels are the CSS devils are the CSS Indians. We are being weird profile all the time, and we profile each other.

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

When we look at one another,

00:07:21--> 00:07:37

we look at people and we identify them, isn't it. So if you are a person who is well trained in the academic sciences, and you look at people, you look at them, and you can pay them what what you have what they don't have.

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

And if you come from a certain part of the world, and they don't come from that part of the world, we profiled them. And if I'm a rich man, and I look at another man, then I look at him, I think

00:07:49--> 00:07:59

this is where you stand. And this is where I stand, I'm a little bit above you, or you're a little bit above me, and I'm a little bit below you. So this is how we judge people, this is how we see others.

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

So we see others in terms of races, we see others in terms of people are Indian ballet, black, white, racial, etc, with and so on. We see other people in terms of their political affiliation, you ANC and this one is da, da, da, da, da, da, you know, look at it, you don't look at anything else. If you see somebody that is if in the DA and is a Muslim, the first thing you look at him and you say, you don't say you see him as an Imam, or a chef or whatever, he may be a doctor, first thing you say no, he belongs to the DA. So that informs your attitude towards him. When you see someone and say why just a carbon register plug, we'll see some reason doctors say well, you know, that is

00:08:40--> 00:08:46

that. Feminists, we look at some women, women look at other women and say, Well, she's a feminist.

00:08:48--> 00:09:05

Everything must be done in terms of feminists, they question like, why are they no female prophets, for example, why only made profit wasn't allowed further? Isn't Allah phase and Allah equal with another discussion for another time? So we put each other in boxes.

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

We put each other into particular boxes.

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

And

00:09:13--> 00:09:47

we know that these labels that we give one another doesn't determine who we are, isn't it? So? I'm sure so many times you have to tell a person but that's not me that maybe you heard from somebody else, you know, you're saying now, somebody else told you that I'm that I'm not that kind of person. I'm not that person at all. So you see somebody with a beard, maybe no coat and say we set up lady. We know the man is not at all but this is that is how we look at the person and that's how we see a shape and that's how we put them into boxes. And it's very easy for us to do that with other people. We like to put other people into boxes.

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

But really,

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

we can never really put ourselves into boxes. We don't really know who we are.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

We live when you look in the mirror. That's not you

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

Sorry to disappoint you.

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

But maybe it's also good thing. If I tell you that when you look in the mirror that's not you know, you feel better when you look in the mirror that's on me. So, you know, more I must hide some that when I see you when I look in the cache.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

Why is it not really you?

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

Because it's an image of you. It's an image reflected in a, in a mirror. That's what you

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

you can't really see yourself

00:10:30--> 00:10:34

unless you see a reflection of yourself in the mirror. But that's not you. That's a reflection of you in the mirror.

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

You may only have an idea of what other people think about you. You don't really know what people think about

00:10:44--> 00:10:54

me, I'm sure you've heard so many things about what people think about you say, Well, if you could really say that about me, but I'm not like that. Oh, yeah, I'm like that. But how do you know I'm like that.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

So to see yourself as as I see you.

00:10:59--> 00:11:04

You can't really do that. Because we all buy it for ourselves. We never believe what other people think of us.

00:11:06--> 00:11:23

But what really defines us what makes us all alike. Apart from all the differences and all in beautiful, pretty faces, you've seen the murder what makes us all alike, right through all those veneers and all those covers that we have. What really defines us

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

is the word mcglue.

00:11:27--> 00:11:44

That is what defines whether we have Muslim non Muslim, white, black, green, blue. We are all mahalo. What does it mean? Luke means created, we are all created. And if we are created, then they must be created. Allows berhanu

00:11:45--> 00:11:53

so allows for how God has created us and we share in creation. We all share in the fact that allows one that's created us

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

and that is what binds us and more so if we recognize that

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

the one who created us as being Allah subhanaw taala that binds us as Muslims. That makes us the oma that we are

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

It's so beautiful

00:12:13--> 00:12:41

that wherever you go in the world, we can identify ourselves with other Muslims immediately just by walking into a Masjid you can even in Paris you can be in London you can be in Makkah you can be in Malaysia you can be anywhere you immediately feel that you're part of this great oma why because we are all created by Allah subhanho wa Taala and allows for our Lord so the overarching

00:12:43--> 00:12:53

commonality that we have that which is common for all of us is that yes we were created differently by our laws

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

but that with binds us and make all of us the same is that you all mahalo can we all were created,

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

allocated admin however, and we will create it from him.

00:13:08--> 00:13:14

So we really are just all the same. I mean, if somebody should ask you what medicine was not be Adam.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

What color was gonna be Adam?

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

What culture was nobody?

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

Nobody.

00:13:24--> 00:13:24

Nobody knows.

00:13:25--> 00:13:30

Because there was no culture there was no color there was nothing and we come from Adam.

00:13:31--> 00:13:57

We don't come from anybody else come from anybody anywhere else. She put a pen and say so we'd like to know where you come from. So we have created all these boxes. And we have we have really we finance ourselves in in these boxes. Yes, we are different allowances. We are also different laws while it says you are not in Hello cannot come in Decker in Ronda we created you from male and female.

00:13:59--> 00:14:09

What jalna control been wakaba in and we created you into nations people and recreated you into tribes

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

in Accra, Kumasi, de la he.

00:14:15--> 00:14:37

So show the workshop means people It means nation and kabyle from Avila means tribes. But it means subsets. So we are nations and what the nations we have different people speaking different languages. This country we have cause us to lose and Malays, Indians, all kinds of nationalists, Somalis, we have all kinds of nationality.

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

But

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

how does Allah see us?

00:14:47--> 00:14:51

This Allah says this nation does Allah,

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

Allah, Allah

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

Allah.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Allah tells us how he sees us even the next best

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

And if you look at these two verses of the Quran, the one saying, Allah says omenka created you, in terms of nations,

00:15:10--> 00:15:22

Lita are a few so you may know each other. Then Allah says in chroma komondor layer. Now normally in in language if you have two sentences like this,

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

then in between the two sentences there's a world there's an end for example, if I say I love ice cream, and the sky is blue,

00:15:33--> 00:15:52

I don't I love ice cream The sky is blue. Because the two separate sentences I love it when the sky is blue, but allows us not to put an end in between these two sentences I created you from male and female I've made into tribes and nations. Then Allah says not wa Accra makua in Krav Maga mine de la

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

inoculum come into life

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

and the most honor of you.

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

And Allah in the sight of allows for

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

those who have the most

00:16:07--> 00:16:13

those of the most love and simultaneously, the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:14--> 00:16:19

So that is how Allah sees us. Allah sees us as well

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

as persons with different levels of taqwa.

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

That's Allah, Allah.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

Allah, Allah, Allah doesn't say anything else.

00:16:31--> 00:16:39

So in diverse, allows wonderla measures us by nothing else, but look at

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

how low you are, how black you are, like you are richer.

00:16:46--> 00:16:52

So the idea of as being divided into nations and tribes

00:16:55--> 00:17:03

is not Allah Caesar. Allah sees us and honors us by our love for Allah was honolua

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

so if we understand this if we say that

00:17:14--> 00:17:19

allows Muhammad Allah loves those the most who knows Allah the best

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

who knows I love the best

00:17:24--> 00:17:44

your ratio is the ethnicity that God no Allah you got no alibi the fact you white or black. There's no communication between your whiteness and allows peloton there is no communication between you ethnicity, whether you whatever race you are in allows one doesn't matter in the big scheme of things. What

00:17:45--> 00:17:50

how you can know or learn how we know allies through the through the heart.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

There is a place which Allah looks at when Allah looks at you. Allah doesn't see black white.

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

Allah only sees your heart. That's why the Nafisa Salaam says

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

in Allah Allah.

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

Allah Azza

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

wa ala suamico Wallach in yanbu illa.

00:18:22--> 00:18:30

Allah says he doesn't look at your outside at all. Allah doesn't see you outside. Allah doesn't see you as male or female.

00:18:31--> 00:18:36

Allah doesn't see all that. Allah, Allah focuses directly on your heart.

00:18:37--> 00:18:46

ivsa salam says, Allah doesn't look at your person. Allah looks at your heart, and Allah looks at your deeds.

00:18:47--> 00:18:54

Those are the two things Allah looks at, stay to focus on the heart, Allah also all the other things that we think are so important.

00:18:56--> 00:19:07

So So our last one that looks at insaan what is insulin, insulin means the human being, Allah looks at the insulin and Allah looks inside the insulin.

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

Nothing else matters to Allah.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

What only matters is your is your

00:19:15--> 00:19:59

is that which Allah has given to you. Because one can argue what happens if you take somebody out in places with another heart, but that is probably a discussion of another time. So your reality and my reality in Alice eyes is that we are creation of a loss. We are all the same creation of a loss. And Allah doesn't distinguish between us in terms of our sex and in terms of our color. And in terms of anything like that. The only looks at the heart. That's why the NaVi Salaam says fidgety Muto in the body there is a piece of flesh. If that piece of flesh is good, the whole body is good. And that piece of flesh is bad. The whole body is bad Allah hahaha

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

That piece of flesh is the heart of a person and that may be fit to the rule

00:20:07--> 00:20:18

allows one of the talks about the revolution in Allah says, He says revelation to the heart of Muhammad Rasul. He sent it to the heart, whether this is your will

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

but it is that spot in your in your in you, which Allah focuses on

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

and allows for how Natasha

00:20:31--> 00:20:49

has given us only in son the ability to think and to know, nobody else could know nobody else. None of creation can know. Yes, they can be trained to know they can train a dog to train a monkey, but they don't know. In fact they don't know that they know

00:20:51--> 00:20:58

and they know that they can think you are unique in this. We have the unique ability to know

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

what not none of our last creations. We have what is called tech leaf. Now you've heard of children becoming macula. What is macula macula is when you realize your responsibilities towards allows pinata. So tech leave is realizing our ethical and moral responsibility towards Allah which is Coca Cola, the rise of Allah and hookah labor and the rights of man.

00:21:32--> 00:21:54

This is what makes us different from all the other creation of our love. And it makes us so different. That if we are thankful and grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for making us human beings and then for making us Muslims, we can raise our level to above the level of the angels which Allah created.

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

We can raise to the level of above the angel Subhana Allah

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

so when you look at a person

00:22:07--> 00:22:31

look as Allah looks at the person, Allah doesn't look at his color, his background, his history already look at that. Allah you are such a bad person. I'm not gonna look at your Oh you did all these bad things in your life. Look at know, Allah looks at the heart and seeks for the goodness in the hearts of people 24 seven.

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

So, do not look at look at people as insane. The word that I want to use is do not never judge people.

00:22:43--> 00:22:47

And if you do judge people always judge him to be better than you.

00:22:49--> 00:23:04

Always see yourself as a very sinful person. And the person you look at Subhanallah you don't know what is what what what is called is what his heart is. And now AV is hot is in the eyes of Allah was final.

00:23:06--> 00:23:35

So the deen of Allah subhanaw taala is sent to help us to understand this. And that is why Islam was such a liberating force in life. Islam came to do away with tribalism, Islam came to do and that's why people fell in love with Islam, people like below with Abu Bakr and all the in the Roman and their personal, they came and they fell in love with his Deen because of the fact that there were no barriers that Islamic put up between us.

00:23:37--> 00:23:48

And he saw once is Dean wants us to use the example of the Nabi sallallahu, wasallam to reach our full human potential in this world.

00:23:49--> 00:23:55

But the more we focus on the outside, we will never really attain our full potential.

00:23:56--> 00:24:22

I mean, we all have made people work for us, isn't it? And how do you see that person, you see that person only as a maid, only as a worker. And you will be shocked to find out what that person may know if you interact with that person and don't see the person's color. Don't see the person's position. You just look at the inside of that insanity of that the humanity of the person, you will be surprised

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

at what the person is. I remember my daughter

00:24:27--> 00:24:37

employed a maid and she finally made that a degree I think are some tertiary qualification upon Allah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

If you didn't know that, if you didn't interact with him, he wouldn't have known that.

00:24:43--> 00:24:51

So this is how we learn to know other people. That is what the dean that we should stop trying to see things in terms of

00:24:54--> 00:24:58

Yeah, he's a big law firm, clear, not obeying. Help people like that.

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

Good Witch Buddha nature of hoonah. She's a big law firm

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

with a stray Tara hollow.

00:25:07--> 00:25:19

And what happens? Sometimes the marriages, lots of marriages don't love because these are how two things, the things it doesn't matter in the eyes of Allah is the inside is the puddle. It is a type of the person that

00:25:26--> 00:25:34

I want to give you a few examples before you go to before we go today, and hopefully inshallah and I refer to these examples on Tuesday evening in my class.

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

I want you to always remember these examples.

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

I don't see anybody sleeping, so don't fall asleep now. Because it's the best part of the lecture.

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

I really want you to remember these example.

00:25:51--> 00:26:05

Because these examples will put the greatness of Islam in perspective. Because we may you may think, you know, why is it people become Muslim? Why do people become Muslim? In the 1000s? Why are we the biggest growing faith in the world?

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

Why?

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

What is it that attracts people to Islam?

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

part of the answer will come now in the examples which I'm going to give you

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

a Buddha Allah differ a

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

lot, a lot, a lot, a lot A lot.

00:26:30--> 00:26:33

I know when the Muslims conquered Makkah,

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

Nafisa Salam said below, climb onto the top of the Kaaba and make other.

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

Now

00:26:48--> 00:26:53

there were many people who are very unhappy about this

00:26:55--> 00:26:56

including Sahaba.

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

Because you must understand that

00:27:04--> 00:27:07

the people of Arabia

00:27:09--> 00:27:15

were classified into different times that Iraqi

00:27:16--> 00:27:23

the courage on the top and then the other time was at the bottom, the other tribe was at the bottom, and slaves were at the right at the bottom.

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

Slaves that new position in Arab society.

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

So

00:27:32--> 00:27:40

Adam was not this slave was not even an Adam was black. From from Africa, he was from Africa.

00:27:43--> 00:27:46

asked him to go and make other

00:27:49--> 00:27:54

people unhappy. They couldn't say that they weren't happy, but they weren't happy.

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

And so we got onto the curb and he made

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

despite the fact

00:28:03--> 00:28:07

now we would say well, you know, I SWAT Mike and we're gonna

00:28:12--> 00:28:16

we would still connect. He's raised what he does.

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

That we saw some didn't do that. In fact, Bella,

00:28:23--> 00:28:34

couldn't say shin. He couldn't say she, but later she was seen and she couldn't say she would say would say I said, Oh Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:28:37--> 00:28:40

Allah, why love,

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

Prophet loved him.

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

The Prophet chose him above all the 100 and I don't know how many

00:28:50--> 00:28:53

120,000 Muslims that were there.

00:28:57--> 00:29:13

It was a it was a fundamental human love. Because the prophet SAW beyond his blackness beyond this position of the prophet SAW his heart. The prophet SAW his love for the deen prophet SAW his love for our laws. And the Prophet raised him

00:29:14--> 00:29:16

physically above everybody else,

00:29:17--> 00:29:21

physically to get on top of the car, but everybody can see.

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

Slave black, no ad not

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

difficult to accept.

00:29:40--> 00:29:41

And

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

one day I was

00:29:45--> 00:29:46

allowed to learn

00:29:47--> 00:29:50

we read the name of Buddha referee.

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

He one day got angry with

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

with Vilas

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

He got so angry with Billa

00:30:03--> 00:30:06

that he said something to be loved. He said Dabney soda.

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

He said to me,

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

You are the son of a black woman.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

Now we know about that was horrible.

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

So, because the law was very affected by this,

00:30:27--> 00:30:32

and he went to the Navy salatu salam, ala rasulillah. I'm very upset with the Buddha.

00:30:34--> 00:30:42

Over said, What happened? He said I am. I basically said, I'm black, meaning he looked down upon fact, he didn't say I'm black. He said,

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

use my mother also you can imagine.

00:30:47--> 00:30:50

So when I looked at a Buddha, and he said,

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

in a maroon

00:30:54--> 00:31:01

jelly, oh, Buddha, Eva, we are a man. inside you, they still

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

listen,

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

when you go home and relate these stories to your children and your wife, your family.

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

Because we live in such a divided world,

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

within xenophobia

00:31:20--> 00:31:24

against people what is different from us? They just different.

00:31:26--> 00:31:32

And how many times have been new and I said, What are the Somalis doing here? What are these people doing?

00:31:33--> 00:31:53

Alcohol doesn't see Somalis. He sees the hot, hot. And so we should look beyond where these people come from. We should look at them. And we have a greater responsibility to look at them as human beings because they're also Muslim. But even if we were not Muslim, we should still see them as insane.

00:31:54--> 00:32:00

This is what makes people become want to become part of this team.

00:32:03--> 00:32:12

What is gyri Murray? What is prophecy? Because Jerry Lee of course as we know is a state of ignorance. It is the opposite of knowledge.

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

He stole a Buddha you still have

00:32:19--> 00:32:27

the law says you can impose any money. You can imaginary Bushido. I'm saying this in Afrikaans because there's some foreigners I don't know.

00:32:30--> 00:32:34

can imagine me anymore say dominicana the boss eliminated

00:32:35--> 00:32:41

you can take the men I must now let's let's not even take the man out of the bush but he can't take the bush out of the man.

00:32:42--> 00:32:48

So this is what the prophet basically said to you. You know, you still have these habits that you had in the time of Jay Z.

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

And

00:32:53--> 00:32:58

or ignorance that two levels of ignorance is jealousy. And Jan maraca

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

is

00:33:01--> 00:33:08

you don't know what you know. You don't know. Very simple ignorance. I know. I don't know. I know.

00:33:09--> 00:33:16

And what will you do? You will go and learn to know. Then there's john maraca. Then there is the compound ignorance.

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

You don't even know that you don't know.

00:33:23--> 00:33:36

You don't know that you don't know. So much you don't come? Because you don't know that you don't know. We don't seek knowledge. Because you don't know what you do. You think you know everything? Why don't you go to the pharmacy go to school?

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

Because you don't know that.

00:33:39--> 00:33:50

Jan maraca Hello. They are lasagna makers of Jan toffee that we should know that we don't know. And we know and we admit I don't know. And we go and seek knowledge.

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

Don't say to him.

00:33:59--> 00:33:59

You have that?

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

Who was a Buddha?

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

Who was this man?

00:34:09--> 00:34:20

gibreel one day came to the NaVi salatu salam said Dr. Sol Allah, Allah, I'm gonna send you Salaam and Allah subhanaw taala says you must take Allah salado Buddha.

00:34:22--> 00:34:23

radi Allahu Allah.

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

So then evisa salam said

00:34:30--> 00:34:32

Alessi must give salado Buddha

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

elevation in my name who he

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

really

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

is why what about what about

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

the others

00:34:50--> 00:34:50

and

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

the angels in all the havens know he's Navy

00:35:02--> 00:35:05

So the prophets of Salaam, I'm sure his mind was

00:35:07--> 00:35:17

going through all the things that in your Buddha, he said really all the angels in all the seven heavens, millions of angels Allah created all of them, all of them. Why?

00:35:20--> 00:35:22

The answer was an extremely simple answer.

00:35:23--> 00:35:27

Because of his love of Sudoku allow him

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

because he loves to read, cool who

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

he loves to read

00:35:40--> 00:35:45

the the surah of helaas which deals with the oneness of Allah.

00:35:49--> 00:35:56

He was first minister he led Naboo Illa Allah, we should worship men but Allah was

00:35:57--> 00:36:03

and one day I'm giving you some idea of who this man was not only the eyes of amateurs,

00:36:07--> 00:36:14

and one day the Navy as a Buddha, yada yada because a Buddha was he was not like the other Sahaba

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

was very stern.

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

And very

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

on the dean, nothing can shake him.

00:36:26--> 00:36:35

He was a loner, poor man. didn't ask anybody for nothing. to one day the Navy selam Winton will say the Abba Mata to hagwon.

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

We wanted to know asked him what do you love Abu Dhabi, what do you like what do you like in life?

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

And he said, Yeah, Rasool Allah.

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

modele de

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

Waal, nota

00:36:58--> 00:36:58

Allah,

00:37:00--> 00:37:02

and Allah have to say they are so I love to be with the poor.

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

And I love death. And I love sickness,

00:37:07--> 00:37:10

too. So the nebrija team, you're a very strange man.

00:37:11--> 00:37:22

You're very strange. You are different from all my other company. Why do you love sickness? Is it your pseudo law when I'm sick? I am very sincere with a loss.

00:37:25--> 00:37:38

And I've made this example many times, and I've given the example many times to go visit the man. Maybe they didn't come to the masjid. Now he's here to visit him. What do you find?

00:37:39--> 00:37:49

What do you find there is a masala lying at the bottom of the barrel. This it has to be hanging on the side of the day. And there's a camera next to him. And he needs to keep around.

00:37:51--> 00:38:05

Why? Because he's realizing tapanuli now going to die maybe. So I now need allows for an OTA so now he gets close to a lead because very sincere.

00:38:09--> 00:38:12

What do they say? When you come when you go and visit

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

us in Canada?

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

Why? Because he thought his emptying of all the other things he's wants to get close to all I was loving which Allah let's take him in a state of goodness.

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

And Elisa Sallam said to him you love death?

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

You like to die? Yes, Allah.

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

You didn't say that?

00:38:39--> 00:38:48

With a smile with a big smile, the biggest smile on his face. You say Dr. rasulillah. Without death, I will never meet Allah.

00:38:49--> 00:38:50

I have to die.

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

I have to die to meet allows.

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

So I'm looking forward to that.

00:38:57--> 00:39:04

Luca has a habit. And that is why when we say Abu Dhabi, what do we say? We say rob the Allahu taala. May Allah be pleased.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

Despite the fact that he called

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

Bilbao the key word.

00:39:14--> 00:39:14

Let's

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

use a keyword.

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

In America, the N word

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

is going to be the key word.

00:39:25--> 00:39:31

But when we made there's nobody better than aboda from the time of the Tabby Up to now,

00:39:33--> 00:39:40

all the other people who can't compete not the mom Chavo had none of them. Why not? Because our border was a Sahabi

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

the highest status a man could ever get to be a companion of Muhammad Sallallahu any and, and, and when Sam said this to me, we went to the library and he said to be law, he put his face on the ground. And he said to me, put your foot on my face, your beloved

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

For what I've done

00:40:04--> 00:40:04

to be loud

00:40:07--> 00:40:10

I love you and I forgive you. Hello.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

So this is Alvin Ibiza, Salaam sabella.

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

These are true believers.

00:40:25--> 00:40:38

These will not be known. What is a movement? Very simple definition of a movement. A movement is a person who when he worships Allah, he does good he smiles to himself

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

Mashallah, yeah I see you know, Brenda Pura. I've given somebody something I've been caught up for five years this morning I was in the budget making salad in JAMA. I made the offer my parents this morning I did the

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

community

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

and when it goes wrong is very sad. That

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

if you are sad when you do wrong,

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

your your movement can you believe

00:41:08--> 00:41:17

that if you do it wrong, you still you'll still be a movement because you are not happy. You're not happy. Say Allah did this. I know I'm doing this.

00:41:19--> 00:41:52

So you're a very good person. And you know, you, you read you travel has changed my life now and I'm going to try to be good be in the masjid and read Koran, and not chat and my wife and not beat my wife, we're not sure. And then Jimmy comes along with his weed from you know, you knew him and like you knew him like 20 years ago. So Jimmy comes in. And then you know, you smoke the weed, you know, we say Allah, what is this man? I'm just starting to get out of this. You know, y'all I've been making this a long time. I've been making my father in Jamaica, I've been doing all this. I've been in the Koran. You know?

00:41:56--> 00:41:56

What is that?

00:41:57--> 00:42:05

Are you putting your dependence on your deeds? No, you put your dependence on Allah.

00:42:09--> 00:42:30

And just as you should not judge yourself by your sins. So we should not judge other people what they did, because a man is not his past, man is what is in his heart. You can't say well, he did that when he was 20 years old. So we you know, he will remain a bad person for the rest of his life. No.

00:42:32--> 00:42:32

No.

00:42:34--> 00:42:37

Limit example. And I gave an example on Tuesday night.

00:42:42--> 00:42:55

He was unique in his agent for the ladies. In the time of Jerry Leah unique. There was no other person in Morocco at the Navy salon as much as our Marina Hata. So much so that you all have the courage,

00:42:56--> 00:43:21

never contemplated to kill the Navy sauce elemental then he was the only man who took his word walk towards the house of the Navy and said, I'm gonna finish the job tonight. I'm going to go and kill Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. The others were too scared because they were scared of the consequences of tribal warfare of the reaction that was going to happen. Omar was, of course, he was drunk also at the same time

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

was the man

00:43:29--> 00:43:32

who buried his infant daughter alive.

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

He dressed up,

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

walked over to the to the grave put inside, suffocated to death.

00:43:44--> 00:43:48

And he always used to say that was one of the acts that I ate most in my life.

00:44:02--> 00:44:11

If somebody should even ever even Am I that kind of person became Muslim, and there was a election for the leadership of Muslims in Cape Town.

00:44:13--> 00:44:31

And somebody put his name forward. As a leader of the Muslims in Cape Town, they would be a cry out in this community, Twitter and Facebook. How can they put such a man as the leader the Muslims when he was 41 you want to kill the Navy. And when he was 23 Barrett his daughter life

00:44:35--> 00:44:52

that didn't happen. Omar became he was the first men leader halifa to be called ameerul momineen roseola I mean, in terms of the believers, to heroin, but look at look at where he came from Look at his life. So

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

allows Rob doesn't look at what you did there. Allah looks at your heart now. That is Amara

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

radula han Allah and then evisa salon I said about him. If there was a prophet to come after me it would be almost

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

blood, the law. If I told you there was somebody who married his own daughter life that should tell you that somebody wanted to kill and Ephesus Allah, what would you view your reply to?

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

Such a man Khalifa?

00:45:23--> 00:45:26

A prophet after the Prophet, he will pick up the Prophet.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

What does it tell us don't judge a man by what he has done in the past. He may be

00:45:37--> 00:45:37

ignored.

00:45:39--> 00:46:13

She plotted the assassination of Hamza and she appointed she hired a man to kill him on the battlefield. And the Battle of war. She went back onto the battlefield. And she saw you must have seen the clip on this and he saw how he when Hamza was killed Abu Hamza was the uncle of the Navy Salah he was the brother of the Navy says they drank from the same race, and he was most likely to be in faith and be loved it

00:46:14--> 00:46:28

if you love somebody mentioned you love your uncle, or your son, whatever. And he went after this man killed Hamza, he cut of his stomach, took a piece of His love and ate it, just like

00:46:31--> 00:46:31

him.

00:46:35--> 00:46:41

But of all the women in the world from the time of the tablet enough to now there is not a better woman then in

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

Why?

00:46:45--> 00:46:50

Because she became Muslim, she became a Sahaba of the Navy Salalah.

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

And there are no better people in the companions of Muhammad Ali,

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

which became a very, very good

00:47:01--> 00:47:11

and this is what when people read the Mohammed Salah, this is what they really this man lived in the desert of Arabia. He was such a forgiving man's

00:47:12--> 00:47:12

forgiving man,

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

a woman a lover of his uncle.

00:47:19--> 00:47:23

And when we mentioned her name being what do we say? Robbie Allah Juana

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

be allowed

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

may Allah be pleased with him pig Allah be pleased with

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

really if we can just

00:47:40--> 00:47:42

from today's couldn't take

00:47:44--> 00:48:10

the one lesson is that when we look at somebody, we look at your children. You look at your brothers, your sisters, you look at people that you know, people may have not had such a colorful career as you have. Never say never. In Islam we never say never.
