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

So, last time we made I told you that I was going for Amara channel

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

and I've returned from Amara

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

and today I inshallah, I want to share with you

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

some of the

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

thoughts that I had while I was in hamura.

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

And how

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

when you

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

go former of a hedge,

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

one finds that your experiences are different,

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

that you experience different things

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

at different times in different places.

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

And it is not possible to experience

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

different things

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

unless you apply your mind

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

to what you are doing.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

And applying your mind to what you are doing

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

is commanded in the Quran.

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

Allah says in Surah Muhammad

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

a fella Tata Bruno for an

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

a fella is at the bar una hora.

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

Do you not contemplate and think deeply on the Quran?

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

So the Quran encourages us to look beyond the surface

00:02:22--> 00:02:31

and to experience beyond the surface below the surface. In so many highlights of the Quran allows boundaries, speaks about

00:02:33--> 00:02:45

la la comida karoun la la comida Kuru La La Quinta de Quran, Allah speaking so many verses of the Quran that allows fathers reveal the book in order to encourage us to think

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

it means that on the day of the AMA,

00:02:50--> 00:03:21

we will not have an excuse but allows founder to say yeah, I love it. I followed only those who laid me policies but I didn't say that in my forearm. I said only they should follow Mohammed Salah Allah is Allah. What I told in the Quran was that you should apply your own mind that you should think about this Deen that you should think about Allah, that when you go when you come to the masjid and you make Salah you should think about your Salah. You should think why am I making the Salah Am I making the Salah

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

for Salah

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

or am I making the Salah for Allah

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

when I go for Omron Hajj, I asked myself the question.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

The Ramadan is coming, are we waiting for Ramadan?

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

Or are we waiting for Ramadan to bring us closer to Allah?

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

It may not be a very big question.

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

But if you really think about it, it's a major issue in our lives.

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

Because do we worship Islam? Or do we worship Allah?

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

If you read the Quran,

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

we look at

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

the first sajida in the Quran

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

was revealed to the novice or Salaam.

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

In the very first verses that was revealed to the Navy salsola they made sure I

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

was good.

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

Allah says to the Navy so Salah was good. Walk Atari. What should he do? To get close to me Allah, Allah says you want to get close to me was good, you should make sujood but what kind of solute? Why is it that all the hundreds of 1000s of suits that we make, we get no closer to all that and we will do what we will 50 years ago

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

and the last sujood So this first sujood

00:04:52--> 00:04:57

and the Quran starts with sujood the last two Jude is to be found in Surah

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Surah Al Hajj

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

About which Makkah and Medina is all about all about hedge and try to hedge is the only surah in the Quran that has the name of a pillar of Islam there is no surah to Salah

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

or surah to Sokka

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

or surratt have you know, there's only one

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

pillar of Islam

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

that allows for high note Allah mentions and gives a name to a Surah Surah

00:05:32--> 00:05:41

so she also has a very great significance for Muslims. So in the first place I said Allah, Jason's the Navy Solomon says you want to be near to me you makes you to me,

00:05:42--> 00:05:56

and then allows Valenzuela the last suit sajida that was the first sajida and the last sajida that was revealed to the Navy so Salaam was revealed in Surah Al Hajj, the 22nd surah in the Quran.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

We allow Spangler says,

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

era Johann levena amanu era Carol was doodoo Barbuda Rama con la la comme

00:06:10--> 00:06:20

Allah says, Oh you people believe make Roku makes you Jude and worship your Lord. So in order that you may be successful

00:06:22--> 00:06:40

so the beginning of the Quran starts with Sue Judah, and the last sajida revealed inside of Hajj ends with the first one is directed to Muhammad himself. The last one is directed to Yeah, you have Latina woman, are you people who believe.

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

Now

00:06:45--> 00:06:51

one of the things that struck me more than ever this time when I went

00:06:52--> 00:06:57

was I became very conscious of the sanctity

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

of the places which I visited.

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

Now, why didn't you listen very carefully to this?

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

Because this is extremely important.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

What do I mean when I talk about the sanctity?

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

I mean

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

what does Allah say?

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

About maca?

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

Why is maca such a holy place?

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

Why do we spend all that we have just to be in Makkah?

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

Do we go there for the towel off? For the sign?

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

What What do we go into the

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

why do we go there?

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

Why is it a special place that Allah calls us to?

00:07:55--> 00:08:03

And what what is the what do we take what what what should be full of what should our suitcases contain? When we go there

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

if you go to the gym, you take a gym bag with you, isn't it

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

you don't take your suit bag with you. You go to take your gym bag because you're going to the gym.

00:08:21--> 00:08:40

And so when you go to different places if you go to the beach you take that with you those clothes with if you go to the mountain you take hiking boots with you. So obviously if you go to Makkah and Medina is a kind of suitcase which you need to pack in the vehicle with you. And alfonzo tells us what to pack in that suitcase our loss analysis, what does the word do

00:08:41--> 00:08:47

and take with the provision when you go on the journey for Hajj or Umrah for in the

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

end the base provision

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

that you can take with you is the provision of taqwa.

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

And when we make to our before we leave the house, we say Allah in the US I look there's a Luca fee safarinow

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

and Mira what taqwa

00:09:12--> 00:09:26

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

They sell beer and Tuvalu Wacom tablet machico mareeba kyndall Deborah Alexander what is being what is goodness? Goodness is not to turn your face to the east of the West. That doesn't determine your Goodness. Goodness is to believe in Allah to believe properly in a Lost Planet Allah. So Allah We ask Allah to grant us on this journey, taqwa and wamena Rama Lima, very important and actions which Allah will be pleased with

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

But I want to focus on the taco part.

00:10:04--> 00:10:20

When you focus on the taco part, and what is taco taco as we know it is to become conscious of Allah. I don't know if you've had this feeling or into when you become conscious of Allah ever become conscious of Allah.

00:10:21--> 00:10:27

Any of us become really conscious that allows pantalla

00:10:28--> 00:10:32

is with you all the time. I mean, we take the story of,

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

of

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

abubaker acidic or the ultra

00:10:41--> 00:10:50

when he was in the cave, was an AVI salatu salam. And I can ask you the same question I can say to you, if you were in a dangerous situation.

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

And the Prophet was with you, would you be afraid?

00:10:55--> 00:11:16

That you very happy, isn't it? If you if your life was in danger, and you had the Navy Savalas along with you, you'd be very happy. Then we say, Well, you've got all the protection you need. You need no protection that yet when our bunker and the Navy saw Los Alamos, and our bunker had complete trust in the profits of solo

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

noted out of doubt,

00:11:20--> 00:11:25

when the Prophet came with him with a kalama said accepted without any doubt without any question bellaterra do

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

without any thought.

00:11:30--> 00:11:42

When the Navy says, I'm going to say gnarly karma lodges about 10 years old, was 10 years old in Makkah, and he was the second a second men that are gonna be approached to accept Islam.

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

So this little 10 year old prophecy to Dr. Ali, he lived in the Prophet house, Timo Ali, I want you to say your Kelly Masha de la ilaha illa Allah.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

What do you think is it?

00:11:56--> 00:12:02

Said La la la la. He didn't. He looked at the prophet and he said, Danny for kill.

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

He said, leave me I want to think about this first.

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

Alhamdulillah we are born Muslim so we don't have that that

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

issue of thinking about what you want to be.

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

When the Navy Sallam said

00:12:34--> 00:12:46

to Mr. Bill hottub one day they were working on stadia here on arena armor his armor. armor is Roger Lalanne he is with profit motive. Even a B should come after me.

00:13:21--> 00:13:29

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

Professor Omar Do you love me?

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

More than you love yourself?

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

And he was quiet.

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

And he said yeah, Rasul Allah,

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

to be honest with you, I can't answer that question. Now.

00:13:47--> 00:13:56

Look at the honesty. I mean, you could have continued to say Arsenal Allah. Of course I love you more than myself. He says let me speak to my enough's first.

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

Let me consult myself.

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

Let me have a conversation with myself and ask myself

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

and Omar went aside and had a conversation with himself.

00:14:13--> 00:14:30

And he self said to me, Omar, who would you have been without Mohamed Salah lesson? What kind of nuts would you have been what kind of person would you have been? and went back and he said, You have now decided I love you more than I love myself. Because without you I would not have been the Muslim that I am today.

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

So when the Nabi was in the cave

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

with Abu Bakar acidic Ron

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

What happened? He said Yara soon Allah

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

lo now that I had to home tat akademija Lara

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

he said, Oh prophet of Allah. If one of the Quran who's standing here by the by the opening of the cave should look down. They will see our

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

feet

00:15:01--> 00:15:22

and he was shaking of fear. He was with an Ibiza Salam in the cave but he was shaking off here and then a loss of a hunter revealed the verse the property didn't say to him of work Don't worry I'm with you why worried man?

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

00:15:40--> 00:15:45

aboubaker What do you think of two persons and allies the third one.

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

So who was the one who protected both Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and Abu Bakar acidic or alkaline? Allah says not Bahamas Rasul

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:02--> 00:16:06

It is allows Muhammad Allah who protects all of us everything.

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

So

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

it is important for us to understand our relationship with a long span of time. And height is about our taqwa height is about our consciousness of our lows. panatela height is about our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:30--> 00:16:40

What do we say when we go for Hajj? What do we say no way to know it will hide us in a way to the Amata or haram to be highly light Allah and what then?

00:16:42--> 00:16:58

Mr. Musharraf, he says, you have to say immediately after the Nia let bake Allahu Allah bake. La bakerella Sheree Kala Kala bake in Alhambra when Metallica was the

00:16:59--> 00:17:10

first thing you say when you before entering the preachings of the hora before you cross

00:17:11--> 00:17:20

the McCart is to say what what do you say? You say lebap Oh Allah I have come to you

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

I am blood Allah labella Allah, Allah bacon Ashley Kala Kala bake and I am in your presence alone without the partnership of any other person or being or creation

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

I am alone with you on this journey from now on from now while I'm in my hub until

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

I am only with you and nobody else.

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

I'm only with you and nobody else

00:18:01--> 00:18:14

and where are we going? Are we now maybe in Medina or maybe in Jeddah maybe in can we now entered into Hara so we go now we go to the holiest place on Earth.

00:18:16--> 00:18:24

A place about which allows for hunger says in our wallet at New the aliveness.

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

The letter B

00:18:28--> 00:18:35

allows hunger This is the first house it is built for the worship of Allah. We bacchetta mubaraka

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

wahoo the Leilani was both

00:18:39--> 00:18:51

so the first sujood that was made on the earth was made that place and what about that place? In Sorrento Hajj, Allah speaks about Makkah.

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

What does Allah say about Mark allows vongola says

00:18:59--> 00:19:07

listen carefully. So that will hatch. Go look up the verse, verse 26. Allah says, Who are my unit fee

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

Bill had in resolving to the caminada le

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

allows vongola says about maka.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

Woman you read Phoebe had in Biddle mean, Nicole,

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

either been alima.

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

If you have any intention

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

of doing anything bad

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

in Makkah

00:19:46--> 00:19:51

allowances you will taste the most severe punishment

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

whether you say something with your mouth

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

And then Ibiza Salaam says unconfirmed Abdullah is rude

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

that the only place

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

on earth

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

where if you think something bad, you will be punished for it.

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

We know that normally, if you see things, something bad to do something bad and you don't do it, no punishment.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

what goes on in your mind goes on in your mind.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

But what goes on in your mind

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

in the horror of Makkah, is punishable.

00:20:44--> 00:20:49

So when you are in Makkah, you're not even allowed to think wrong thoughts.

00:20:51--> 00:20:55

You can imagine how your hair stands, if you think about this, and you're in Makkah.

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

You said then you think Subhana Allah, even I thought is punishable by law in this great precinct.

00:21:09--> 00:21:20

And you realize that the reading is a solemn said that every act in Makkah, is multiplied 100,000 times.

00:21:22--> 00:21:33

So if you say Subhana Allah in Makkah, it is as it is as if you exceed 100,000 times sohara.

00:21:36--> 00:21:43

So if you say one bad word in Makkah, it is as if you said that word 100,000 times.

00:21:50--> 00:21:58

If you become conscious of this particular situation, you can understand why some of the Sahaba ra Masato Salah

00:22:01--> 00:22:05

Neva relieve themselves in the precincts of the huddle.

00:22:07--> 00:22:13

They used to leave knock and go outside of Makkah outside the boundaries of Makkah to go and relieve themselves.

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

Out of fear of

00:22:20--> 00:22:24

going over the boundaries which allows for Angela has laid down there for us.

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

And I think if one goes with a kind of consciousness,

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

because one sees I mean to the hammer, Allah has given us a wealth

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

and aeroplanes a travel the fast.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

Anyway, we have Zamzam towers,

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

we have all these beautiful hotels.

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

And I think because of all this we sometimes forget about where we going, and to whom we are going,

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

who is visited we are

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

by whose invitation we came.

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

But we're human.

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

So what do we do we go to Baka

00:23:20--> 00:23:23

and we have certain ideas in our minds.

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

Me and you and all of us here. First thing we think of is what am I going to ask Allah?

00:23:32--> 00:23:45

Am I going to ask for my diabetes for my blood or for my cancer or mother or my father, or a job or maybe if I lost if I don't have a wife, maybe ask for the wife, but don't ever husband never asked for the husband.

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

And we go to Makkah filled with all these

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

requests from allows.

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

There's nothing wrong with that.

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

But sometimes

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

that becomes the objective of Hutch

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

and sometimes that becomes your objective of visiting the city and the cover of Mohammed Salah Larissa

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

and we have a disconnect with Allah

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

because all we going to ask him

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

and to cry to ask him

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

so when we make Salah we ask, I think wrong.

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

But when are we going to go?

00:24:44--> 00:24:50

review good if you go and visit somebody. If somebody sent you a special invitation

00:24:51--> 00:24:52

to come and visit him.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

Do you go to that man and ask him privately with me? No. But can you give me the secret the nicest so

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Give me that you know I need this and then

00:25:03--> 00:25:10

if somebody invites you, you go and you sit down in his house and you wait for him to serve you. And when he's finished, you say thank you very much and you leave.

00:25:12--> 00:25:16

Maybe you leave the asking for some other time. But at the time we invite you.

00:25:19--> 00:25:22

So I was sitting in the hot room and thinking to myself,

00:25:24--> 00:25:25

you have come here.

00:25:26--> 00:25:35

I need to ask Allah for many things. And I said to myself, but hold on a minute, hold on a minute, as if I can do something.

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

Allah knows everything you need

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

are you thinking Allah doesn't know what you how much money you got in the bank?

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

Do you think Allah doesn't know seek you out healthy or

00:25:51--> 00:25:55

do you think Allah doesn't know that you're that you haven't got a job baby?

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

Are you unaware of all these things?

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

Should it not be that we should

00:26:05--> 00:26:09

go there to elevate and to praise Allah subhanaw taala

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

after all, when the Navy Salam was asked

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

who Salah is accepted?

00:26:20--> 00:26:24

When do you know that your Salah is accepted by allows paliotta

00:26:29--> 00:26:34

and allows for hunger Allah says in the Hadith codici replies to the question

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

and Allah gives

00:26:42--> 00:26:47

the first requirement for the acceptance of Salah

00:26:48--> 00:26:57

Allah says in Namah Atacama loo salata, me mum kawada bihani automatic.

00:26:58--> 00:27:10

Allah says, The first condition for acceptance of Salah is that I will accept the Salah of the person who uses the Salah to elevate me

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

to praise me

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

to glorify me.

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

So I say to myself, not gonna ask anymore.

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

And I realize when I say made deck that question to myself, that I didn't need to ask him for because I asked.

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

Allah knows my needs.

00:27:39--> 00:27:49

Allah knows my requirements, Allah knows before I can think before I was made before I came into this world, Allah knew what my needs were. Because as a human being, I like to ask,

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

Allah loves us to ask.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

But it comes a time

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

at a place like that.

00:27:59--> 00:28:06

When you realize that you are here as a guest of Allah, you have to interface with Allah.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

You have to form a kind of relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:28:19--> 00:28:26

And what do we do? In our a bar or a bar that when we think about when you say

00:28:27--> 00:28:30

no way to sell Mahajan, for example,

00:28:31--> 00:28:38

and I die Felicia Ramadan, hobbies Allah tala Imani Swati Saba. And what is the last words we say?

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

Li Hua Ji like Kareem.

00:28:42--> 00:28:49

That all that intention all that's fasting all that is for what? For the sake of Allah Allah.

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

When you say now he suddenly found a certain Juma

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

Raka taneous later what is the last word we say? Lila hit Allah.

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

We say for the sake of a loss.

00:29:08--> 00:29:18

So what am I trying to say to you? I'm trying to say to you do it makes a lot to make Salah or do we make Salah to praise Allah?

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

That's the question.

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

When I make saliva I'm making sorry because I am making Salah because I am making Salah

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

because I have to make Salah because Allah says I have to make Salah because Mohammed says I have to make Salah

00:29:38--> 00:29:42

or do I have to make Salah for Allah

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

Do I have to become conscious of Allah when I make Salah?

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

That's the question. That's the disconnect. I think that we have what allows

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

and because it we have the discipline

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

Connect with Allah as the things come in between us and allows

00:30:10--> 00:30:24

that our legions is no more because we don't have a relationship with a law because we are not connected with a law because we do not practice law completely

00:30:25--> 00:30:31

there is a disconnect and when there is a disconnect shaytan comes in between

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

because that is his objective

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

he's objective is to come in between us and allows Hannah tada

00:30:44--> 00:30:48

he's objective is to let you make your Salah, but what no connection will allow.

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

So God no connection with Allah ruku no connection with Allah

00:30:56--> 00:31:00

becomes a movement with words with a movement.

00:31:05--> 00:31:09

So somebody comes along and he wants to fill that gap for you. He says brother

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

is something missing in your life.

00:31:20--> 00:31:25

And I want to fill that gap which is in your life missing in your life, this is what you should do in this position.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

And people fill this void with many things.

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

And so Abu Bakar gelato

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

when the Prophet passed away,

00:31:46--> 00:31:47

people were said

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

to be felt a great sense of loss.

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

Omar was up in arms

00:31:57--> 00:32:04

thrashing he swore to the streets of Medina, saying that if anybody says Mohammed is dead, I will kill him.

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

So much emotion on can understand the emotion

00:32:12--> 00:32:17

should we still do it today? Should we still walk around and say anybody who says Muhammad is dead we will kill him.

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

No.

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

We understand.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

We understand

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

because I will walk in when on the member and he said

00:32:34--> 00:32:43

and he can't normally sit or sit down and he went on the member and he said man can i a Buddha Mohammedan for a number of Ramadan had met

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

Rama yeah Buddha law in the law. How you lay a mood.

00:32:53--> 00:33:05

He said oh people yeah, you oneness. Those of you who worship Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Muhammad is dead. But not mad means pastors.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

Why am I a Buddha law.

00:33:09--> 00:33:15

And those of you who worship the law, know that Allah is alive and Allah will never die.

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

Sitting in the harem of Medina and Mecca

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

made me realize

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

that the greatest challenge that we face in our faith

00:33:36--> 00:33:46

in our deal today kept up with the Zia with Medina was in Makkah, all the items of the harab speak only about one thing and one thing

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

they speak about the shake

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

and the bar the diversion

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

and innovation

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

that is this, this

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

destroying this faith.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

We have lost our relationship with Allah

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

and I cry and I say

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

Oh Allah do not make us like the Christians have become

00:34:23--> 00:34:30

that have such a disconnect with a God that they gave their God a son at worship the southern tip of the God.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

Today, we are in a situation where we don't know whether we should love Mohammed more Allah mo

00:34:46--> 00:34:51

those are supposed to guide us and lead us confuse us.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

This Dean is clear, very clear.

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

Allah created us

00:35:11--> 00:35:14

he's our sustainer our Creator to him we are answerable.

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

His judgment is the final judgment in all matters.

00:35:24--> 00:35:30

And he has told us what our relationship should be with everybody else.

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

Especially his beloved Mohamed Salah longs

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

he instructed us on that relationship.

00:35:39--> 00:35:53

He told us in contempt I had no knowledge. He said, If you love me a law, what do you do about Mohammed Salah? He was following follow me son devicenet

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

love him.

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

respect him.

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

know what he did?

00:36:03--> 00:36:08

Listen to him. Because when you listen to him, it is as if he listened to me says Allah.

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

And at the end if you listen to all this, he has if you have been obedient to Mohammed Salah allowed Islam

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

but also says about him.

00:36:24--> 00:36:25

Our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah,

00:36:27--> 00:36:34

called in nama Anna Basha don't miss Lu kumuha illa. Allah says to him ohama sasaram tell the Muslims

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

I am only a human being like you.

00:36:40--> 00:36:49

The difference between me and you is great. The greatest difference is that I have received revelation from Allah and none of you have received revelation from Allah.

00:36:59--> 00:37:02

I've spoken to you about our relationship with Allah.

00:37:04--> 00:37:13

Whether we have a relationship with a lot, Oh, do we have a relationship of what he told us to do? We worship Ramadan, we worship Salah.

00:37:15--> 00:37:16

Maybe I'm wrong.

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

Our relationship with Mohammed salatu salam.

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

His relationship

00:37:29--> 00:37:32

of a bar is following his son.

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

I was sitting in the heart of Medina.

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

And as Eileen was speaking,

00:37:40--> 00:37:41

it was

00:37:42--> 00:37:46

obviously in what you were saying. On masala Hadith he was

00:37:48--> 00:38:05

giving lectures on the science of Hadith. And of course, by the way, he spoke Subhanallah I thought to myself, I've learned absolutely zero after the time that he I listened to speak. You know, you come at you. Sometimes you listen to somebody speak in your field.

00:38:07--> 00:38:11

And you think Suba Han Allah this man is speaking in my own field.

00:38:12--> 00:38:18

Yet when I listen to his words, I think that I know nothing. I have to go back to school and learn right from the beginning.

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

Anyway, speaking on a Hadith of the Navy Salaam with an episode Salam said

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

al e Manu.

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

With our own was in tune obey their own was of our own a Shabbat shuba.

00:38:39--> 00:38:44

Abdullah, Allah, Allah Allah says in evisa salam said,

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

that a man is divided into 70 or 60 or 70 parts.

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

The highest part of he man is La Ilaha Illa.

00:38:58--> 00:39:29

Then he went into an explanation because we know La Ilaha Illa. Allah means what does it mean? He means la Buddha in lava. It means there is none worthy of worship except Allah. Everybody has value, but only Allah is worthy of worship, reason other worthy of worship Subhana Allah, and he explained only the Kalam well though Hadith is what na.

00:39:30--> 00:39:48

The highest form of Eman is to say la ilaha illAllah autoliv La ilaha illallah wa adna imouto to other hamitic. Wherever Salam said, the least form of image the smallest speck of human is to remove an obstacle from the road

00:39:50--> 00:39:58

as even me saying that La ilaha illAllah rec removes all the obstacles from your road into Jana.

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

That is the highest form of removal obstacle, and you remove the obstacles from the road where other people walk.

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

And he was saying that we say, yeah,

00:40:11--> 00:40:21

this is what he said he's sitting in the harm of Medina. And he's facing the cover of the nerissa salaam and I'm sitting there. And he says, you know, people say yeah, Allah.

00:40:22--> 00:40:26

And then the next words that come out of the mouth is Yasser Allah.

00:40:28--> 00:40:46

And he says, How can we do this? How can he one breath say Allah? And in the same breath, you say, you're a surah Allah. How can you explain he said, How can you in the same breath, put the Nagisa Salam on the same level as allows ohana? tala, when Muhammad himself taught us to say Allah?

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

Because he had a whole

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

explanation as to why he said this.

00:40:54--> 00:41:02

Today we have this dichotomy. They have this thing about people saying, you know, if we don't do this, you don't love Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

If you don't do that, you don't love the deed.

00:41:08--> 00:41:09

Yet the deen is so simple.

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

Today we live

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

in a society in a community where there's so many things that

00:41:22--> 00:41:27

that is obviously wrong, don't have to say this is obviously a man dies.

00:41:30--> 00:41:33

In Europe, in Syria, a man dies in Surrey

00:41:38--> 00:41:43

on a delegation led by the alum of Cape Town,

00:41:48--> 00:41:48

what happens

00:41:51--> 00:41:57

stead of following the commandments of Islam, commandments of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:41:59--> 00:42:03

They go against all of that they bring his body here, after number of days.

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

The very

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

I've already spoken about

00:42:15--> 00:42:16

the moment that was held

00:42:18--> 00:42:23

when non Muslim patronages was called to speak

00:42:27--> 00:42:31

at the celebration of the birthday of the greatest man who ever lived mahabis so

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

I'm not going to use the kuffaar.

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

I'm going to say people who reject the poorer

00:42:43--> 00:42:45

people who reject Bahamas have allowed.

00:42:47--> 00:43:02

People who have to take a stand for or against Islam, or take a stand against Islam are invited to bless a gathering of praising Muhammad Salas later led by the Alabama

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

we have a church opening in good I mean a mosque sorry, POF

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

msgid.

00:43:14--> 00:43:37

House of a law on miles and your house? Will you invite the local bishop to come and bless your house? When you vote in your house? Tell me anyone put up your hand. Be honest with yourself. Will you invite the local church leader to come to your house and to bleach your house?

00:43:41--> 00:43:41

Be honest.

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

Why won't you do it? Because

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

you're a Muslim.

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

Instinctively you won't do it. Even if nobody gives you a fact even if I say to you, the hermit is alright man.

00:43:57--> 00:43:59

fluffly passed on to coma.

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

To COVID who has skin?

00:44:07--> 00:44:12

disease the house of Allah not at my house the house, House of Allah House of

00:44:13--> 00:44:20

House of Allah subhanho wa Taala house in which sujood is made to Allah subhana wa

00:44:21--> 00:44:35

hallstrom which were carried last house which we visit before they bury us, when we go back to a loss, what do we do? What is the meaning? All ama do they invite the enemy?

00:44:37--> 00:44:48

Now you say who you see is intolerant? You see why what? See? See? See? He says the Christians are enemies. See what you see what you see you see how intolerant when Allah says

00:44:49--> 00:44:58

that he do i do we do work earlier I mean to me. Allah says don't take my enemy and new enemies friends besides the Muslims.

00:45:05--> 00:45:05

We have a

00:45:07--> 00:45:08

query going on

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

another celebration we had. Yeah, I wasn't Yeah.

00:45:19--> 00:45:26

I wouldn't have commented, because it's not as it's not a celebration worthy of comment. It's pure shift

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

to shift

00:45:35--> 00:45:43

not only because it's easier, but it will lead to greater chiraq in the future, when our demand and that of our children will be weaker.

00:45:45--> 00:45:47

But that is not what disturbs me.

00:45:49--> 00:45:55

What this tells me is again, non Muslims are called upon to bless these occasions, what is that?

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

Those limbs are called into our masajid.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

to elevate us,

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

we have not become followers of Mohammed Nana follows us too far.

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

And also Angela warns us about falling the kuffaar.

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

This is, and this is not by

00:46:28--> 00:46:29

this is part

00:46:32--> 00:46:34

have an allowance behind what Allah

00:46:37--> 00:46:39

has decreed for us.

00:46:42--> 00:46:44

Allah says, Do you think that will not test you?

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

Do you think I've brought into this world I will not test you.

00:46:49--> 00:46:51

With your families,

00:46:52--> 00:46:57

with your friends, with your wealth, with your wives.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

Most important with your email,

00:47:01--> 00:47:06

you think is going to be just an easy job. You come you say La la la la, you make a few dollars you go to Paradise?

00:47:08--> 00:47:09

Doesn't work like?

00:47:11--> 00:47:22

Was it the life of Muhammad? Do you think it's? Do you think it was? Do you think it was? It was? It was the prophet shall we we need to go against his his his father's brothers.

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

That loved him.

00:47:28--> 00:47:33

Might Africa for him? Carry them on the left when he was a little boy?

00:47:36--> 00:47:43

When his own family turned against him? Do you think it was it was nice? He felt good. His own uncle didn't want to accept?

00:47:45--> 00:47:51

What do we say today? So you know, he's my friend, my brother, my uncle?

00:47:53--> 00:47:55

We're in the same business together.

00:47:56--> 00:48:02

We've been business class for so long. While he does all that but you know, I don't I don't care about what he does you know this business?

00:48:07--> 00:48:13

In other words, what are we saying? Almost unimportant. My business transaction is important for me to tell him he's wrong. That's not important.

00:48:15--> 00:48:18

My friendship with him is more important than my connection with Allah.

00:48:24--> 00:48:25

Why? Because

00:48:26--> 00:48:29

nice life, sit on the fence, friends with everybody.

00:48:31--> 00:48:34

Good, good life, the very good life.

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

But it's a life of hypocrisy.

00:48:42--> 00:48:43

It's a life where you

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

know,

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

that your faith in your mind leaks out from your body. It leaks out literally and figuratively.

00:48:57--> 00:49:01

So when we go on these Sacred Journeys,

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

and Allah gives us a time to contemplate and to think.

00:49:11--> 00:49:17

Through it every now setting in the heart. I've never seen so many people in my life. I saw so many people, this time in Makkah

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

that I felt afraid.

00:49:23--> 00:49:29

I felt afraid. Just looking at the number of people. There's more people than I saw in when I went on hikes The last time

00:49:31--> 00:49:38

I felt afraid really, I felt fear. The thought was if if anybody starts stampeding here, or does

00:49:39--> 00:49:41

maybe just walks too fast.

00:49:43--> 00:49:46

And somebody panics, we'll all be dead. So many people there.

00:49:48--> 00:49:50

And who was I worried about?

00:49:51--> 00:49:53

My wife and we she was

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

really worried about myself.

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

And I say to myself, this is exactly how it's been.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

interview on the Day of Judgment

00:50:03--> 00:50:28

exactly the same feeling I had a claustrophobic disclosure of you know if you're surrounded in it's hot by two 300 400 500,000 people and you don't know a single one of them, you look around nobody looks at you nobody nobody cares we are nobody sees what kind of top you ever what kind of topper you got on or ansem you know nobody's interested in this is clear.

00:50:30--> 00:50:34

And you think to yourself and the only one that matters is Allah.

00:50:35--> 00:50:44

Only one that covers for me here the only one to protect me, the only one who looks after me. The only one who will listen to me is the last one.

00:50:46--> 00:50:52

And I would not have known Allah except via the messenger Shabaab Muhammad Allah.

00:50:54--> 00:51:03

So whenever we mentioned Allah, we mentioned the name of Muhammad Rasul Allah Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Allah Allah Muhammad Allah tala Solomonic
