sada Pahlavi

00:01:10--> 00:01:23

these verses which I quoted, and I've quoted it many times before, come from Surah Al facilite, which is the 41st surah in the whole of Iran and we are going to inshallah,

00:01:24--> 00:01:30

attempt to explain verse 30, to 35 inshallah.

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

Now, when we look at the life of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:36--> 00:02:12

we find that there was the meccan period in the Medina period. These verses were revealed, in the time when the Navy saucer lamb was in Makkah, and we know the circumstances. And the situation that prevailed in Makkah, at that time before the hegira. We know that just as a lot of the other generations that followed the other prophets didn't want to listen to the prophets, and people have new people or prusa people of ERISA, and so forth and so on. They didn't want to listen to their profits.

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

And we find that the same

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

confronted than obese alcoholism.

00:02:24--> 00:02:43

People are generally averse to the truth, meaning people don't like the truth, no matter what it is, whether it comes from a profit or nonprofit, people generally download they like to hear what they want to hear. They like to hear what they think is the truth. But the real truth that's why there is a solemn said,

00:02:44--> 00:03:32

Colin Hawk, hello Karna Maura speak the truth, even if it is better. So truth will always be a very bitter pill to swallow, swallow. Why? Because the truth is not in alignment with what we as human beings want to enjoy in this in this life. And we know that we have a very good encourager in that field, namely shavon that always tells us that this is nicer than this one. This truth is not so nice. This is a bit better. This is nice, it looks the same, it smells the same. It makes the same noises. And maybe the shaytaan says why worry, you know, don't do that do this. This is easier to do. So in the time of the Navy salatu salam, the Quran understood the Quran

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

they knew that when the Quran was recited Oh in the Quran was revealed to the novices and this was the ultimate truth from allows, they knew that why do they know that? Because they understood every single word that was revealed to the NaVi Salalah celebra last time. So what do they do? involved with generations and nations before the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

various people tried various things, to hide the truth.

00:04:07--> 00:04:14

And one of the things that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Hackman

00:04:15--> 00:04:30

amongst the Quraysh in the same Surah Surah facilite Alzheimer says, what color levena cafaro and those who rejected the truth, what did they do? They say to one another lattissima only

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

one Oh, whoa de

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

la la,

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

la la, la buena.

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

They say to each other.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

When the barangay three sighted what you should do is you mustn't listen to the poorer don't listen to the fun in fact, what you should know well how they encourage one another to make noise when the Quran is being read with an episode talks about

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

They make noises, they interrupt, they shout, and they talk. You see, they sit waiting people, people always have somebody reciting the Quran and why the Quran is being recited and this is of course just for this is not to listen to the message as well. This is what we do in Cape Town very different and no five minutes, the Moses put the duckies on for that five minutes and when the five minutes over the thing, this is the kind of respect that we show to the column of allows hunter and it's not the people in a whole extra blame. It's the organizers.

00:05:37--> 00:05:55

If you know that your group of people that you have invited to a wedding have no respect for the Quran, then you should not read the Quran it says functions. Because who do you insulting allows to have any more fun in the Kufa because of the kofod when the Quran was read, what did they do?

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

They made a noise.

00:05:58--> 00:06:38

They didn't listen to the Fuhrer. So we must be very careful not to use tradition to harm ourselves in the Akira SubhanAllah. Because remember, the Quran is not just some logo that somebody is better than somebody else. Someone's got a nice voice. So we don't ask that cousin because he's never nice voice. We asked this cousin to read the Quran, not because of the Quran, but because of the voice of the person who reads the Quran, the person with the most money, you get the best car in Cape Town to read the Quran. At this function of the people sitting in the in the in the in the audience, half of them are undressed, dressed to undress.

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

You know what I'm talking about your weddings in your family and my family. This is what happens today.

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

So we should keep the Quran very far from such gatherings, which will make it or maybe

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

don't spoil the hold on in such places.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

So they portray us to say,

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

Show disrespect, make a noise. Don't listen.

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

La La comme de Lune.

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

And they said, If you do this, you will become

00:07:14--> 00:07:24

the leaders of society. You will retain your position in Makkah provided you prevent people from listening to the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

Now, the birth before this verse, which I quoted,

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

I quoted the city was 29 says to confirm

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

on the day of piano this is what they will say to a load.

00:07:42--> 00:07:50

They will say what color Lavina cafaro robina erina levena of the learner Phil Jenny meenal genuine ins

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

for jalo Matata akademin le akuna minal asphaltene.

00:07:58--> 00:08:11

Listen to this. This is what the kuffar those people in Makkah, the coloration, all the other people who reject what will they say to all on Def Jam as they're being thrown in janam already in Ghana, what will they say? They will say, Our Lord

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

arena show us

00:08:15--> 00:08:26

and levena balena Minaj in New Orleans, show us bring to us, those of the jinn and those of men who misled us

00:08:27--> 00:08:34

there was even when they in janam, they will not admit to the fact that they misled themselves.

00:08:35--> 00:08:48

They are now looking for cables eola. First they point to the gym. Nobody can see in any case, and they say Oh Allah placed them under our feet so we can stand on them.

00:08:49--> 00:09:05

So we can make them have the violence amongst us. What is this? What does this mean? Allah, Allah says they need to say this, it means that they refuse to take responsibility for the actions who is the head on this dunya they refuse.

00:09:06--> 00:09:44

They don't say Oh Allah, forgive us, you know we did wrong notice is not our fault. This is not our fault, not our fault. It's the fault of the genome as leaders, it's the fault of other human beings, humans leaders. That's why we now enter Jannah. So we want you to bring them here. So this lack of personal responsibility for our actions, this thing of not wanting to take responsibility for what we are. This is not the reaction of a Muslim. This is the reaction of those who do not believe in Allah who do not believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

And amongst the believers also there are many people who never blame themselves. And maybe particularly when it comes to the deal,

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

particularly when it comes to the dean for example,

00:10:01--> 00:10:43

If somebody if you have to look at your life, some of us, may Allah make us good Muslims inshallah. But there are many people who don't want to take responsibility for their lives, what do they blame, they blame the parents. They blame the workplace, who I work in this environment, I can't wear a scarf. I can't wear pants, I can't make saliva, in the workplace, every kind of excuse they have financial, no, I have to do this because of my financial situation, you know, I have to work at at a gambling place, we have to work at a place with this hierarchy. Because you know, there's no other jobs that I can do. You know, I have to overcharge people, I have to catch people, I have to do all

00:10:43--> 00:11:03

these things. Because, you know, it's, it's tough times and we live in and ultimately afford to blame shaytaan Oh, this is you know, and I'm a weak person, you know, shaytan was was in my ear, that I should do this, or do that. And, you know, ultimately be within our current alpha self. You know, I've been doing this for so long, I can't help myself anymore. You know, I just do it. And

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

we hide behind these excuses.

00:11:08--> 00:11:27

We hide behind. And we know we tell our children all day every day. So don't panic. Don't make excuses. There's nothing wrong with you. You just have this little coffee was go to school, but I'm sick. No, no, no, you're not sick. It is that don't hide by an excuse, you have to go to school. So allows you a hand with Allah

00:11:29--> 00:11:42

doesn't make it a quality of a believer in Allah, not to face his own responsibilities. And therefore in the next verses, allows wahana with Allah talks about the Muslim

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

and allows wonder, gives us

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

and in indication

00:11:52--> 00:12:02

of why a Muslim takes responsibility for his or her own actions. And why a Muslim is happy to take responsibility for his or her actions.

00:12:04--> 00:12:10

As I said, this surah is a meccan surah which echoed the verse which I quoted in the lead in a call or upon Allah.

00:12:11--> 00:12:24

Now, because as I said, it's a makansutra. in Makkah, it was not easy for people to declare themselves to be Muslim, is very, very difficult. If you want it to come out,

00:12:25--> 00:13:01

to say that you are a Muslim, they were heavy social responsibilities and social consequences for doing that. So we know that for many years in Makkah, was a few years from the beginning. The prophets of Sullivan has a habit is to hide in the outcome. They didn't go to the harem to pray. Many of them hit a slob we know Fatima, the sister of Omar, when he came to he was shocked people said your sister became Muslim, he didn't know he says he was Muslim. He didn't know his sister was reading the Quran. Why not because they were too scared to expose the Islam. So

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

today also,

00:13:05--> 00:13:11

we are afraid and ashamed sometimes to, to say really who we are.

00:13:12--> 00:13:31

And sometimes the names that our parents give us doesn't help us in that respect. So you as a father, or a mother will give your child the wrong name adds to the child's burdens in life. Because the child already has a problem in a model c school or in a private school to say that he's a Muslim.

00:13:34--> 00:13:47

Not because he doesn't want to, but because of the circumstances people want to fit in. But if you get give his name, some name that sounds like a Christian name, or a Hindu name or a Russian name, Tania or something like that.

00:13:48--> 00:13:55

Or sometimes even a Muslim name that sounds like a Christian name. You shouldn't give it to your child. You know, and Avi Brian's wife was named Sarah.

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

But you know, then eventually Sarah become Sarah.

00:14:02--> 00:14:17

And Sarah also has non Muslims also. The Jews love the name Sarah because they love Nabila. Hey Melissa, so we should be careful. We should always think about our Deen and the future of our Deen.

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

So it was in your best interest in in Makkah, at that time to keep quiet, but to say anything. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, in this verse

00:14:29--> 00:14:35

that are quoted highlights the courage of the Muslims of that time

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

to openly declare the Islam, Allah says

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

in levena call Laura Boone Allah. Allah doesn't say that they come and say that we are Muslims. They say in the Latina, Carlota Muslim or they didn't say to the Quran, we are Muslims or become a Muslim. No, what did they do? They made a declaration.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

What is the declaration? The Declaration was that I declared

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

Ramune Allah that Allah is my Lord,

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

that Allah is my master.

00:15:13--> 00:15:23

So the Declaration was more than saying I am a Muslim. The Declaration was, I have someone who can protect me.

00:15:24--> 00:15:48

I have someone who guide me. I have someone who is with me. This was a declaration in Lavina colo or a boon Allah so they weren't hiding. They weren't clotted Muslims. And we know the example of Belarus. In many other examples Somalia, the first human who was martyred in the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. So this declaration

00:15:49--> 00:15:59

is a very important declaration. And you will see how important this declaration is for our children and in the society that we live in today.

00:16:01--> 00:16:12

By saying that you have someone that protects you by declaring that Allah is Rob and Rob is the highest form of authority.

00:16:13--> 00:16:27

example we use it in our daily lives, Rubble bait, Rubble bait is the person the owner of the house, the person who owns the house the person who has authority in them, so if you are the father and you own the house,

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

then you are the final authority. You call your Abul bait or stackable weight

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

allows for handler the highest name we give to Allah is Rob

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

So when you declare and say a Rob buena

00:16:44--> 00:16:49

immediately and automatically you are saying you are Abdullah

00:16:51--> 00:16:59

Abdullah You are the slave of a labor laws you're then you are the slave of Allah subhana wa tada

00:17:01--> 00:17:07

and you declare that no one has authority over you except only allows for

00:17:08--> 00:17:16

the authority that you that you stand under is the authority that is allowed swatara so what are you saying

00:17:17--> 00:17:49

I'm not afraid of my family. No my neighbors no the leaders of the duration the time with an obese or solemn I am not subject to economic pressures. Nobody can control me. I am the slave of the one who created me horrible al amin along so I have no water and you declare that he is the one who has total and absolute authority over me NFC and no one except Allah was panel with Allah Rabbul aalameen.

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

So

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

we need to think very deeply about saying Rob buena. Allies are up

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

and allows for honkala uses an Arabic word a special Arabic word called Izumo soon.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

For a relative pronoun in Arabic.

00:18:17--> 00:18:29

Allah says Allah v. Nakamura boon Allah, those who say, and this word and levena means a specific kind of person.

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

Allah uses other words for generality of people.

00:18:36--> 00:19:04

For example, a last one, let's say for man shadowfall You mean woman Shafilea? Allah says whoever wants to be to believe, is free to believe. And even who doesn't want to believe is free not to believe always do it man. But yeah, allies and levena alladhina means a specific, Allah chooses a space this is a chosen group of people who say, or a Buddha, chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:05--> 00:19:50

So as I said, If Allah is the Robin and the slave, then in any other language, if you call somebody a slave, what does it mean in any language, except the language of the Koran. It means First of all, loss of freedom. A slave is good, no freedom. It means he's exploited or she is exploited. It means they are oppressed. It means also the abuse. We see it today. We have slavery again, has come back because of the Syrian situation, every situation, the situation with Africa, we see those refugees going over the Mediterranean drowning in the 1000s. Yet what for what do they do for the economic freedom, maybe personal freedom

00:19:52--> 00:19:57

but they eventually become slaves. And we read this in the new we read this in the press

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

so

00:20:02--> 00:20:17

slavery in its normal sense, is not liberating. doesn't give you freedom. But if you're a slave to Allah subhanho wa Taala It is as if Allah has given you a certificate for your freedom and independence.

00:20:21--> 00:20:35

Because now, as a slave of Allah, you're not a slave to fashion. No, you say, Robin Allah, you don't say to fashion, you're not you don't become a slave to to your appetite, you know, they say, you know,

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

obey your thirst. How long have

00:20:43--> 00:21:10

you see these big billboards? What does it say about your craft drink, of course, try to whatever it may be a biotest you will not do that. I mean, and you know, that is bad for you. Cuz you know, that Coca Cola and sprite and these things are bad for you, bad for us. When you get my age, you know how bad it is for you. You've been drinking Coca Cola, your whole life and sprite and all these things, and then sugar, diabetes, and eventually we chopped your legs off because of coke and sprite because of

00:21:11--> 00:21:36

obeying your thirst instead of obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we don't obey your thirst. We don't obey of the fashions we don't obey pressure of societies in, carry on. I follow Islam and Islam. This is my Deen, you want to do that Brother, you go ahead and do it. You're not a slave to economics, you know that? You know that you don't even know. But you believe that the orders that has been written to you

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

bitwala, my name is in the

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

panel.

00:21:43--> 00:21:55

That's where the Navy Sallam said that no social, no soul shall die until that soul has consumed every drop of water, every grain of rice that has been written for it.

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

So gonna be Santorum says Evo Razak, has already been written for you, then seek it in halloway.

00:22:06--> 00:22:21

So when you seek your reserves, Don't make excuses, seek it in a hierarchy because it's already yours. You might just make effort to get it. And we read many stories now in this recession that we're in of how people Alhamdulillah are making a living.

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

And we become entrepreneurs. We bring up new ideas and we do new things all because allows for Allah tala has

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

ordained that for us.

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

So everything that enslaves humanity

00:22:41--> 00:22:49

and puts change on our minds. When we become slaves of Allah, we become free men and free women.

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

And that is our ultimate Declaration of Independence.

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

So I want the youth particularly to hear this because I think young people today are under a lot of pressure. They have a lot of challenges,

00:23:07--> 00:23:31

and especially young women. So when I see a young girl with hijab, or properly dressed, then I'm very happy Subhana Allah, because I can imagine what a young lady should go through today. If for example, she's a person who wears hijab, and now she comes from UCT and she has to go for an interview, and she stays in their pajamas.

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

I wonder how many of us would go for an interview in a hedgerow

00:23:37--> 00:23:42

men had to wear hijab, would you go, you don't even want to put your coffee on your ledger.

00:23:43--> 00:23:48

So you can imagine the admiration, that alive is Angel. And as

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

for that go, how much appreciation should we have

00:23:55--> 00:24:11

with our women folk dress like that? So Mahalo for the challenges they face. I mean, many times I work in case and I look at most women, I think Subhana Allah, look at them, you got beautiful, they dressed they all covered. So Pamela, so we should be grateful for that.

00:24:13--> 00:24:14

So young people,

00:24:15--> 00:24:55

what are the challenges the greatest challenge for young people today to fit in? Because you know, your parents are rich, Mashallah they work their tails off for you to go to the models in school or to go to the private school. So you get to the private school, you know, you're a girl so your father brought you up in your father's are no, my girls, you know, I brought him up like this. They always say they do key, you know, and so forth and so on. So now you go to school and you go to high school. And you know, you you go there and you got your Ducky on and everybody looks at you and the teacher makes comments in the journal makes comments about your dress, and you feel out of place.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

You feel you're fit in, you know, you feel that

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

You know, you You're the only one wearing a scarf. Nobody else is wearing a scarf. You know, but this is how you brought up you you brought up in a home like that your parents educated you like that your mother wears it every day. So you follow your mom in that respect.

00:25:18--> 00:25:30

So why is it that we feel like that when we have to present ourselves as Muslims? Why is it it's like that because we do not understand

00:25:33--> 00:25:41

what it means. When we say Rabbana law, when we say allies, our master, that is our load.

00:25:42--> 00:25:51

And our children cannot be blamed because they have been educated to wear the scarf, they've not been told why they should wear the scarf.

00:25:53--> 00:25:59

They've been told to make Salah they haven't been told why they should make Salah to whom they are making Salah.

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

If we tell our children, that allies, our Arab allies, our monster, and if he is the master, and we are the slaves, then whatever we do, we do it for him.

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

That in fact, to wear a scarf is liberating to wear the scarf is the greatest freedom that a woman can have

00:26:21--> 00:26:26

in any situation, because it covers all those pleased with her.

00:26:27--> 00:26:31

She looks beautiful, Mashallah. And so many things.

00:26:32--> 00:26:36

And so when the Persians were conquered,

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

because what we are what? Why does the child want to take it off?

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

Why don't I want to present myself as a Muslim?

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

Why don't do I want to do the things that I am supposed to do as a Muslim.

00:26:57--> 00:27:03

When the Persians were conquered, the Persian king asked the leader of the Muslim army.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

So why did you come here?

00:27:06--> 00:27:10

Why do you come to Persia? Why did you fight? Why are you fighting with us?

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

Why is this animosity towards us?

00:27:17--> 00:27:30

So you said No, sir. We haven't come here to take your riches away from you. And we haven't come here for any reason we have come here. Our mission as Muslims, is

00:27:31--> 00:27:39

Lucretia NASA maneri burrata liburd, Li Baratheon, beloved, he said, Our mission

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

is to take humanity away

00:27:45--> 00:27:50

from the service and the worship of men to the service and worship of Allah.

00:27:54--> 00:27:57

And that is why Islam is

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

the final liberation of men. And that's why the world needs Islam, to take men away from the

00:28:07--> 00:28:12

service to man to the service of the rubber fan of the lord of men.

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

And so

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

if our children are taught

00:28:22--> 00:28:41

that the rules and regulations that we follow, liberate us, not to follow the passion is liberating. To follow the passion is to I mean, we even do we even do things which is against the command already. So Sammy Salam says, Do not shave

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

one side of your head.

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

And he says, Don't do

00:28:48--> 00:28:54

so against you sooner. Or don't shave the sides of your head and not on top of it. But only do you look stupid.

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

And I'm sorry to say this.

00:28:58--> 00:29:10

But it's also against people saying what's wrong with it? It's wrong because Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salatu salam had commanded us not to do that. A long time didn't put us in this world.

00:29:11--> 00:29:18

To make fools of ourselves, has given us beautiful day we should we should wait a as Mohammed Salam had wanted.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

So

00:29:28--> 00:29:32

and this becomes a burden for us. Fashion is a burden something.

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

to enslave to the world is very burdensome. Your house must look like the Joker must look like. Your suit must look like that. Your wife must look like that. Your children must be super hard. He creates financial burden. It creates depression. It depletes your banking account. It does so many things for you. Why? Because you must follow the patient by name

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

Whereas like that my brothers go like that my sisters like that. You know I can't be not like that. So, you become a slave

00:30:11--> 00:30:41

and allows Maha Nautica. Let's say, you read the law who be kumaun use Wah, wah you ready to move house allows longer is if you can claim I want to make things easy for you. I don't want to make things difficult for you. If you become a slave to anything else, your life will become difficult. But if you're my slave, like become and I always say this, Islam is the easiest faith to follow. But we make it difficult.

00:30:43--> 00:31:04

Islam is the easiest way to follow Subhan Allah and if they only pray that guarantees you agenda, no other faculties vision. And so what we have to give to our Laos handler for the general Subhan Allah Allah says you know Prophet said described Jana mala I knew da da da da da da Kaldi Basha, the agenda is a place

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

that the eyes have not seen.

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

The ear has not heard

00:31:15--> 00:31:16

and the heart is not long. So

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

there is

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

nothing in this donor can compare to that which allows for higher Matala ones for us and in dystonia, allergies, I would ease for you.

00:31:28--> 00:31:36

I want you read to LA Leo KOSPI Franco. Allah says in Surah Nisa, Allah says I want to lighten your life.

00:31:37--> 00:31:48

And the only way you can like in your life yourself is to live your life not as a slave to fashion or to money but as a slave to Allah was fun.

00:31:50--> 00:31:55

People think and this is a fallacy people think you know, if you become religious, oh, it's a burden.

00:31:56--> 00:32:23

No, the prophets of Salaam was at a smile on his face. 24 seven, and who was closer to the religion and was a religion himself than Mohammed Salah larusso. Allah salatu salam, he had tried to run races with his wife yet and to do so many things. No, coming closer to the Legion of allows found Allah. You shed all the slavery, mental slavery and physical slavery that you've been under your whole life.

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

And also, when we think we become religious, everything suddenly becomes haraam.

00:32:30--> 00:32:47

Oh, we can't do this, oh, we can't do because there are certain things you can't do. But you enjoy yourself with your family and your friends and you enjoy the money which Allah has given you to wear nice clothes, have a nice house, have a nice car, and so forth and so on. None of these things is is haram.

00:32:50--> 00:32:51

So it's a tragedy.

00:32:53--> 00:32:59

And sometimes parents even tell you that their children if the children are young and be too religious, because these two

00:33:01--> 00:33:12

young kid from families who, you know, may be joining the Tablighi Jamaat, you know, and is too young to say, Oh, you know, take it easy, you know, take it easy. So how can

00:33:13--> 00:33:17

we do this? How lower acuity level? So

00:33:20--> 00:33:28

it doesn't mean then that if you say, Rob lunala, everything is fine. Doesn't mean when you say allies, my master, and I am the

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

me, that's me.

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

Nobody's made a move.

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

All right. So

00:33:48--> 00:33:52

the next part of the verse allows, finally says a Latina call or a boon Allah.

00:33:54--> 00:34:17

Allah says, You shouldn't only say Allah is my master, you should also be firm on what you say. In other words, it must be followed up with something which is good. It should be followed up with that which confirms, that allows for Hamlet, Allah is your Lord, and Allah has freed you. Allah has given you independence, Allah has liberated you. So far, no luck. So

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

we need to make changes.

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

And I can tell you

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

that

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

it's one of the most liberating things as a Muslim, to not have done something and to do something

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

or to have done something and to leave it.

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

You unburden yourself.

00:34:46--> 00:34:53

I said, the end of Ramadan I said, you know, further is still very early. We should make a pact with our laws.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Then we get up early, a little bit earlier for 5g and we make tahajjud even if you make only to rock

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

of time, and I hope inshallah, that those of you who can know all of us should do that. To try and do that. What we should also do is we should make a wish list, everybody's got a wish list.

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

For example, if you

00:35:15--> 00:35:20

if you if you want to buy a house, people want to buy a house.

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

You know what happens now? So you decide now we're going to buy a house. Oh, what is the excitement, the term excited, you are excited, why is excited? The budget can keep it But anyway, we need to buy a house. She works you work, everybody's working.

00:35:39--> 00:36:13

Until then, so what do you do? What's the newspapers, watch? property 24, whatever it is, you know, you drive around different areas and look at the houses and say, Well, this, maybe you can say this ad and became excited. Potentially you get an agent, you know, eventually, you know, you come down to say three, four houses that you know, interested in. And you know, and you and your wife know that kitchen is not nice in this kitchen, maybe we can do this to the house. And we can do that for all six months or a year that you're looking for this everything is about this house, isn't it and you make a wish list.

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

Now doesn't go to pool so we know that

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

security is not so good.

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

So similarly, we should also make a wish list for the house in general.

00:36:28--> 00:36:35

How many of us make a wish list for us in general? What kind of outfit you want the agenda? What what you're supposed to do for this house in general.

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

And so the wish list we have here on this do

00:36:40--> 00:36:52

I mean, many of us come to the masjid for Juma when we know chef like unite problem. So if I get a 20 paths to the five paths, chances are that I will still make it.

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

When are we going to decide?

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

Normally,

00:36:58--> 00:37:07

for 15 years of my life I've come late for Juma should not change. I should put my wish list my wishes and say no, I should be

00:37:09--> 00:37:14

in time for you. I should be early for you under some of your working

00:37:15--> 00:37:20

but I work it out you know if you take half an hour extra on Jonah day for lunch.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

If you're a good worker, you're possible you can look at him.

00:37:25--> 00:37:32

Why must you and many people come they you know they they come late because first in first first.

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

But in lastin first out yeah.

00:37:41--> 00:37:52

So there's a parking. Yes. So the guy says well if I go early, I want to talk right grant and you know alarms for me to get out. So I'm going to go late at park right to the back. So when the gym has finished no I'm out first.

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

So how long are you going to do it?

00:37:58--> 00:38:00

And for Who are you doing this?

00:38:02--> 00:38:04

What benefit is in it for you?

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

What are you expecting?

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

from Allah subhanaw taala

00:38:12--> 00:38:17

when are we going to come early decide well set by the man many people come

00:38:18--> 00:38:25

right through the week to baptism as you become the father they come from, they come from also come from Africa.

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

For Juma they're not even inside the masjid.

00:38:33--> 00:38:51

They sitting outside domestic. This was I always wondered that, you know, people come to the masjid for ordinary walks, and they sit right in front. But the most important work in the whole of the week. They seem to sit far away from the front.

00:38:54--> 00:39:04

And logically It doesn't make sense to me. If you only come for Joomla one would think that you could come in like when we go to Makkah where do we want to be?

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

We want to be in France.

00:39:09--> 00:39:13

With our eyes, you know your brand and you come back I stood right behind the Imam.

00:39:14--> 00:39:43

But yeah, no. So that should also go to the wishlist. Professor Sallam said, the base of in the masjid is the front song. You should not be so solemn, say if Muslims knew the benefits of sitting in the first half, they will say to the Jamaat, let's draw lots who said in the first half, and you will not sit in the first one, say portunities. And we should put this on our wish list. And so

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

when we have this wish list, we should ask ourselves, why can't they do it? Why can't they do? Why not? What stops me from doing what stopped him from getting up 15 minutes early in the morning for Pfizer and making the algae to rock and what stops me

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

What stops me from reading the Quran every day what stops me? Because I can't read Arabic. The reason you can read English

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

but a Muslim should pick up his for on every single day that is his connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala that is his connection. So Allah says, These people who say allies are Lord and they make effort to do good, what will happen to them? Allah says tetanus delo holla Hebrew Malaika the angels will descend upon them and they all have different interpretations of this verse. Some say that angels will descend upon them when they are on the deathbed

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

so you lying in hospital

00:40:45--> 00:40:50

doesn't matter which hospital you're gonna die you're gonna die whether it's in Vincent Pilates or rescued as matter

00:40:53--> 00:41:11

or you died hope. So, this is tetanus Allah Allah, Allah. Allah says when you when you're on a date with the angels who descend down on you or the person says Robin, Allah, you tried your best to have your wishlist, you tried your best to follow the deen of allows for the angels will descend.

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

And when I said that,

00:41:17--> 00:41:20

you know, of course your wife will be crying or children will be crying or whatever to be said.

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

Some will be waiting for you to die, others will be not waiting for you to die.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

When you lying there, your eyes, open your eyes, close your mouth open in your mouth close.

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

And suddenly you see what they can't see.

00:41:39--> 00:41:44

And these are the angels that come down to you. And then every time someone says

00:41:46--> 00:41:52

either the group of angels will come down to either to be the most terrible side you ever seen in your life,

00:41:53--> 00:42:08

or they'll be the most viewed the angels will come down will be the most beautiful side you've ever seen in your whole life. You will either be terrified, or you will be the happiest man who ever lived. Either one of the two male loss makers in charge of those who are

00:42:09--> 00:42:21

happiest people at that moment when everybody's crying a lot. You see all these beautiful angels down to you. And what do they say to you? What do they say to you?

00:42:22--> 00:42:23

And not half

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

a lot of how

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

they say to you

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

rather

00:42:33--> 00:42:57

than fear. Don't be afraid. Because you're afraid. We are now afraid just thinking about it. Imagine the angel is actually there and nobody can see them only you and you know what this means? You know what it means? This is what the moms and chefs and the moms and Lola knows your mother and your father and all the guitar that you've read in the Quran and you've read spoke about the fact that kulu never seen

00:42:59--> 00:43:13

to come see you like the marshal and his beautiful angels are coming and they say Don't worry, Tommy I'm happy to be worried. Because why do we worry we what is wateriness or in essence

00:43:14--> 00:43:40

what you haven't done so you worry the I didn't make enough Toba ii COVID means it for me all you know I haven't made enough tober I haven't made enough reason given given enough charity. I haven't visited my mother as I said I would have visited my mother You know I didn't ask mark to my wife for what I did or my children or whoever it is. I didn't pay my debts you know so all these things go through your mind name system.

00:43:42--> 00:43:47

wallet, do not don't do don't get it Don't be sad. Don't be sad.

00:43:49--> 00:43:53

We have come to bring you the certificate of the guarantee for gentlemen.

00:43:54--> 00:44:17

And allows vangelis is tetanus Allah Allah human Monica to Allah, Allah tada know, wherever she row, they give me the certificate of glad tidings, please, before you die, you know even the idea. They say brother, this is just this is your place in general. Yes. This is your this is your ticket. When you go there you give this one? No problem. He will let you in.

00:44:20--> 00:44:21

Allah, Allah.

00:44:23--> 00:44:23

Allah.

00:44:24--> 00:44:33

Allah says, and this is the agenda the angel will say to you, this is the agenda that Allah promised you continuously and continuously and continuously.

00:44:36--> 00:44:44

Not what Allah Khan waited Allah promise we will make these promises were in way in the Quran.

00:44:45--> 00:44:50

So if you're a person who love to read the Quran, Mashallah you'd have read every single day Allah talks about general

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

press about Jana, that topology on every page of the Quran elements in general every page so unless is good

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

to control his past tense to add on his presentation, Allah was the present tense in the passes together, it means something which happened currently in USB every single day you are reminded of.

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

So

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

finally, I want to leave you with a source you may be sitting thinking

00:45:28--> 00:45:30

I must know make catch up.

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

I mean, the chef has not abandoned me and I know I've already had this.

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

stench in my heart was a bypassable you know,

00:45:44--> 00:45:56

tablet tablets are working so well anymore because, you know, I've been taking it for so long. Diabetes is taking its effect, you know, things are things are moving along and I you know, so you know, how do I catch up.

00:45:57--> 00:45:58

There are three steps to jump.

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

Three Steps to jump.

00:46:03--> 00:46:06

one step, two steps, three steps.

00:46:07--> 00:46:08

You don't have to run the marathon.

00:46:11--> 00:46:13

Three Steps to generate the first step.

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

The first step is to have a good thought.

00:46:17--> 00:46:21

process, keep your thought clean. Have a good salt.

00:46:22--> 00:46:28

If you think about something anything good. If you want to think about something and bad comes to your mind, you say no, I don't think about that. No.

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

Going

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

when enough of you not thinking about you,

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

every thought must be a good thought.

00:46:39--> 00:46:41

Because thoughts lead to what

00:46:42--> 00:46:50

to actually say if you have good thoughts, you will a good action. So the first step to generalize was pretty easy. A good

00:46:51--> 00:46:54

wholesale good. The second step is

00:46:55--> 00:46:57

say a good word.

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

Only have smooth property or keep quiet

00:47:06--> 00:47:07

and allows me to say

00:47:09--> 00:47:16

Kelly matanza. kashia Jonathan, Allah says a good word is like a good three.

00:47:17--> 00:47:19

A fluid firewall.

00:47:20--> 00:47:25

It's rooted deep in the ground. You look at this oak trees, oak trees, beautiful tree from

00:47:27--> 00:47:34

the roots are deep in the ground, and the branches stretch and the beautiful shade. There is a good one. So first step is to

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

have a good soul.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

And you know in Makkah,

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

in Makkah

00:47:43--> 00:47:50

bookcase, such a holy place, that in Makkah, you get the word for your thoughts.

00:47:51--> 00:47:58

She has a good thought in Makkah, you get 100,000 reward for your good thought, if you have a bad thought in Makkah, 100,000

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

cents for that. So that's why I said logic allows you to look at you directly when you when

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

you are focused, that is a

00:48:12--> 00:48:13

pretty cool

00:48:15--> 00:48:16

thing. It's Ken's

00:48:19--> 00:48:30

the route, has evolved to automated facial drone for you, that circles on your head and watches you, it looks at your thoughts looks at your actions, because everything you do so hard.

00:48:32--> 00:48:38

So And the third thing is, of course, is a good deed, to do something.

00:48:39--> 00:48:46

And everyday, we should have these three things. When you get up when you go to bed and I see what good sources I have.

00:48:47--> 00:48:49

What good Where did I say

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

and what things that do that was good.

00:48:54--> 00:49:04

And it's so easy and really solemn says, If you can't have a good thought, and you can't say a good word, and you can't do a good deed,

00:49:05--> 00:49:11

then stay away from sin. That is also the good. So

00:49:12--> 00:49:19

just to stay away from sin is good. You get reward for it. Just not thinking that bad thought.

00:49:21--> 00:49:50

And keeping it away. Allah will reward you for it. So if you think that 24 hours in a day, you can imagine how much good you can do in one single day without tests apart from your Salah that you have to make and apart from all the other things that you have to do, always keep these three things in mind. So my last one that I gave you in sha Allah, that we become liberated, that we free ourselves from this dunya

00:49:51--> 00:49:58

was living this dunya I always say to my children, you live in this world. Don't let the world live in you

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

Let the world get into your heart they'll always be outside of you that nice car that nice house the beautiful set of clothes all day it's all just

00:50:11--> 00:50:14

today today or tomorrow it's gone or tomorrow you got

00:50:15--> 00:50:48

so it doesn't belong what belongs to us what is inside what is in your mind what is in your heart now allow sama giving Charla that this mela look after this oma wherever we are now allow so I'm gonna give victory to the forces of good in the world wherever they are me allows handler give inshallah that we as an oma become the liberators of the world and we become the spokesman for the goodness of the personality of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam rollout alum, Salaam Alaikum
