If your son

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

and he got accepted into whatever college to study medicine, he looks at you and says, Mom, no, I want to go and study Islam. What are you going to say?

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

nobody's answering you

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

know,

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

no, I wish I heard Yes. Reality.

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

I had this discussion they bring me the child brought me

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

and he said, My and his spirits mashallah practicing. And the mother looked at me and says, Let him finish medical school. And then let him study Sharia. And I said, Subhan Allah.

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

Why not? Why not let him study Islam and then go to medical school.

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

To her Brunel Humberto Thirunal, Hayato dunya,

00:00:55 --> 00:01:11

Allah said, This surah TL Allah and most of you read it every single day. So better smarter, because Allah, glorify the Name of your Lord belt to Thirunal, higher to dunya. You prefer the and Allah call the dunya, you prefer this lower life?

00:01:13 --> 00:01:49

You prefer the slower life? So basically, basically, can you do it to both? The answer is yes. In general, medical school with Sharia or with another is difficult, because it takes a lot of your time. And I know colleagues who did both, they are a lawyer, non Muslim, he's a lawyer, and he's a physician, but he did physician, and then he did a law school. You choose which one first I personally, and it's not because I'm biased, is because I've seen it as a physician study Islam first.

00:01:50 --> 00:01:53

Because in general, medicine, corrupt people.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:59

It's a profession that inject arrogance in me.

00:02:00 --> 00:02:46

Because everybody listened to what you say. And people praise you all the time. Unless you really have this heart that's connected with a law, it's going to be very difficult. Plus, it's a demanding job. Any specialty you're going to go it's a very demanding job. And unless you're connected with well, Allah subhanaw taala, you will lose that connection. Telling you when you're on call for 14 hours, and come on prayer show, I learned it. So always I tell people, let them study Sharia first. Let them apply for medical school, get accepted and take a break. I don't know about Australia, but that's very common in the United States. Take a break, gone study, come back and continue. In

00:02:46 --> 00:02:51

reality, this is actually what we need. Muslims these days, we need both.

00:02:52 --> 00:03:32

We need to educate people in every cause in every specialty, not only medicine, but everything we need. We need a good Muslim reporters, journalists, TV presenters, a politician, we need them, not only them, the professions that will bring money, or professions that we are used to everything we need. We need a good Muslim nurses. Yeah. So combine? Absolutely. Maybe you cannot do it together the same time. It's a little bit challenging. Choose one, which I usually say choose medicine first. I mean, choose Islamic studies first.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:53

Okay, that's another good question. When dealing with negative person, slash, situation, how do you ensure your speech and thoughts internally stay good and righteous?

00:03:55 --> 00:04:01

There's a lot of negatives. Negative people, toxic people we call they say things they shouldn't say.

00:04:03 --> 00:04:15

Right? And I most people when they say things, any very few, but mostly they don't know they said it and they said it in this way. Or the impact it had on other people. Some does, but majority they don't birth came out.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:28

Very simple answer, but not very easy to practice. If you are connected with Allah subhanaw taala I'm going to say it again. Meaning you worked on your connection.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:32

Your answer will be not a single word.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

You just going to zip it.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:55

It has an anniversary has a beautiful statement when I learned it two years ago Subhan Allah and he's a man connected to Allah is not the right word. They used to describe him in a row ear, luckier Allah. When you see him, Allah is remembered.

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

Who was he? And this His name is Alison, the beauty

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

And when you read in the books, they don't call Hassan Buster they call Hassan the beauty. And he said the following this is when you are connected with Allah practically, he said, Man over to be Vasari. I've never looked with my own eyes. When asked me to be with me, and I've never heard with my ears whenever attached to the ad, and I've never used my hand, while mache to be originally and I have never Ma is no option. And I've never walked with my hand Ella, but take a second think

00:05:38 --> 00:05:39

about what

00:05:40 --> 00:06:00

that said Hassan Bosley, not you and me Do I like it is going to be good how people will think about it. There's nothing to do with this. And he said, If He Allah and females here is this is pleasing to Allah. Or this is displeasing to Allah? That's the only question.

00:06:01 --> 00:06:18

Now I know let's say I know the answer or someone told me and he said for encountered females they encountered Fatah if this act or saying or not saying or not responding she thought it's pleasing to Allah taka dumped I'm doing it

00:06:20 --> 00:06:30

when can a few Marcia and if this is disobedient to Allah feeding saying gracias action, whatever it is this weekend to Allah.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

I don't do it.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:36

So here are here you are.

00:06:38 --> 00:07:01

Look at the question. Dealing with a negative person, what the negative person is doing or how or saying they need to answer it is on my business. I'm not going to be asked about why you said that. You said it. And you will not be asked about why did I say that I am going to be asked. So here you go. Someone says something negative to me.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:06

Right What I am going to do? Ask the question,

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

talk to Allah.

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

What do you want me to do?

00:07:12 --> 00:07:13

What will please you?

00:07:14 --> 00:07:21

And if you keep doing this daily basis Wallah, you will hear the answer. And I said his name.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:28

He will tell you, you will control your anger and you don't know how did you do that?

00:07:29 --> 00:07:30

You will not answer.

00:07:32 --> 00:07:40

But you need the first part is not going to come as a magic. It's not a pill, I swallow it. Or it's a button I press it.

00:07:42 --> 00:08:06

This is work and actions and you're connected with Allah and you got up at 3am in the morning and you prayed alone and you cried and you've picked up that Quran and you don't want that and you did these things and you don't want that but they are pleasing to Allah. This is her response. This one he said in the Hadith I said before the break when he starred in the library, the net when he seeks refuge in Me, I'll give it to him it's in here.

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

When you are when it's so easy to respond, and it's very easy to say it and much harder to not but you control

00:08:17 --> 00:08:29

and he said soft pleasing to Allah I'm not gonna say it. It's actually you'll see it. You'll see it and sometimes even you with I've seen what people really irritate them.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:40

And then they control it's not because they are so super special. But they had this now I call it what credit you have with Allah

00:08:43 --> 00:08:50

I didn't see what Allah gave you. I said what credit? What's your credit score? Do you have credit score here?

00:08:51 --> 00:08:58

Right credit score and everybody's compete and to have a higher credit score. What is your credit will Allah

00:08:59 --> 00:09:09

meaning what are things you did it for him only? Nobody even better or nobody saw you? And you were not expecting anything but you are building the credit.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:38

The higher the credit. It comes here as Rasul Allah salatu salam said, Taha Rafi Allah for Raha Yadi for coefficient? No Allah, a time of prosperity. Everything is going my way. No problem, but I know him and I remember him Yadi hookah shinda. When the time of adversity time of need, he will know you and how he will know me. He makes me quiet.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:59

Or even better. He makes me respond in a nice way. But that doesn't come because I'm smart. Or because I studied or because I have a PhD in this and that comes only from him when I have credit with him. So work on your credit. We have only three minutes Subhanallah

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

Play Bismillah

00:10:03 --> 00:10:17

if you have a sin from the past like debt with interest and you are repenting to Allah subhanaw taala How would you rectify it? Do you leave the interest debt or pay it back?

00:10:19 --> 00:10:26

Very good question. And this applies to every sin I get this so common Pamela, Yanni

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

This is actually

00:10:30 --> 00:10:53

an okay sin, but I'm getting Subhan Allah Allah we Muslims are getting to a place of sins 10 years ago. Nobody dare to ask the cost. I sometimes I say to myself, I lost my mom long time ago and I said if she Allah brings her back, she will say Allah send me back. What happened to the world?

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

What's happened to us Muslim,

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

Xena

00:10:59 --> 00:11:06

relationship outside marriage between Muslims. I'm not talking about the others. It's becoming so norm.

00:11:07 --> 00:11:10

It's almost wherever I am. I get the question.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:19

So I, I sinned major. These are major sins, how the major sin interest our majors

00:11:20 --> 00:11:34

or Riba is majors and no one will justify it. Nobody will tell you very few exceptions. So I am dealing with interest. I have done this I have done that including backbiting. It's a major sin.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:40

Like I want to rectified in general and then I've come to this cluster in general.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:58

Number one, you have to repent to Allah subhanaw taala to him, attack, illuminate them come and let them Billa the person and this hadith of rasool Allah is also the person who repent from a sin is the same as a person who didn't do it. And this is very important for us.

00:11:59 --> 00:12:02

Not you did the sin but somebody else did the sin.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:11

Don't keep remind them of remember when you did that, don't do that. Because Allah will test you with that sin.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:15

And especially if you're between spouses,

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

and whatever you did before

00:12:19 --> 00:12:26

Allah has done, you repented, you repented truly, to Allah subhanaw taala it says raised completely

00:12:29 --> 00:12:48

then, so number one is new, you need to repent. Number two, you don't keep doing it. So this major sin has to be removed. The third which is the most difficult, and that's why I mentioned backbiting because if it's involved, the right of another person, you have that person has to forgive you

00:12:50 --> 00:12:56

imagine this that person has to forgive you otherwise on the day of judgment there is a lot to pay.

00:12:58 --> 00:13:09

So for the interest this may sound little bit sharp. Absolutely. Absolutely. This moment you leave it

00:13:10 --> 00:13:14

I don't care you sell the house, I don't care you go and run

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

interest is major sin

00:13:18 --> 00:13:26

a loss at it in the very strong verse in the Quran. Yeah, you're Latina tequila with aroma Kameena Reba

00:13:28 --> 00:13:49

all believer and this is the the believers he didn't say yeah, one nurse said Yeah, you heard the enamel you and me softer. Bacara and the cow to Allah. have Taqwa be Allah conscious. Without all mabati I'm not riba leave and stay away from any trace of interest. Now look at the second one is a scary failure to follow.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:58

If you're not going to do it, for the newbie, how to be meaner, like you are a Saudi. Wait, and Allah will declare war

00:13:59 --> 00:14:01

Subhanallah against you?

00:14:02 --> 00:14:06

And now you wonder and tell me why we are muslims where we are.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:10

Why is this happening to the Muslims?

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

So absolutely, absolutely. Allah I've seen this.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:43

This is a friend of mine who hurt I didn't know that her parents her father, you know, was the usual people who come to the west, you know, worked hard, did whatever. And then Allah subhanaw taala opened his heart to start practicing Islam. And this is a form of the mouth of the daughter. And she said one day he was in the masjid learn this. He was in a lecture that interest is haram. He didn't even know interest is how.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:57

And his wife is non Muslim. I know this family is not a story. Someone told me I know them and their wife Islam Muslim. They spent three years building this house and they took of course loan from the bank.

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

So

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

The husband learned this, that loan was with interest is halal. He came back, told the non Muslim wife, I'm selling this house, and I'm gonna go and live in an apartment. The non Muslim wife said do it.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:26

They stayed for 20 years. Again, I know this family, but I'll tell you what Allah gave them 20 years, they are living in this rental house I visited them.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:42

Then after 20 years, Allah opened the opportunity, unplanned, where he was able to buy a house, fixed it and lived in it. The reward is not this house, look at their children.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:50

I know the family very well. Look at the door, the older daughter, they he has three daughters and a son,

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

the children that you all want to have.

00:15:56 --> 00:16:03

The mother became a Muslim, very recently, maybe five years ago, because of the daughter, the Doha of the daughter.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

Since this is a major sin,

00:16:08 --> 00:16:13

unless you really cannot find a place to live, thus, when a

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

loan from the bank is allowed,

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

which I found it very unlikely,

00:16:20 --> 00:16:28

then you can go and rent an apartment can tell me I'm going to live in an apartment, I am going to say it's your choice. It's your choice.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:44

Then when I am in that private interview, I have to tell him why did I do it? So absolutely. I handled the question. It's so is a good question. Any this? Whoever is asking is you have now you're thinking of putting a law number one your life?

00:16:45 --> 00:16:59

Because now you're having this scenario of everything in my life, to tick the boxes that needs to be ticked? Yes, you need to actually you do not pay the debt. And I don't know if you know the details of how the you will pay

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

three times, roughly three times the price of the house, when you take a loan from the bank. Don't you think that the bank will give me a loan? Right? Because

00:17:16 --> 00:17:24

I am someone special? No, because they make a lot of profits from that interest.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:33

And that's why Paula was just talking to my real estate this morning about something else. And I was like, how does that work? And she said, Well, if the regular

00:17:35 --> 00:17:42

interest they pay I can't remember the year but she said the first I don't know, every payment you're putting is going to the interest.

00:17:43 --> 00:17:45

None of what you pay

00:17:46 --> 00:17:57

in the beginning goes to your ownership of the house. It all goes to interest. And that's what allowed me to tunnel

00:17:58 --> 00:18:12

and why did allow me to cut all the interest because it's injustice. It's injustice to human being. So hamdulillah Rabbanim came in and we answered we'll take one up. It's 905 Where are the organizers?

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

Keep going till one

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

you need to smile

00:18:23 --> 00:18:26

she extended 910 non lying

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

play this Smilla?

00:18:33 --> 00:18:47

Don't ask me about oh, now she explained it. Salaam What about HTC? Is that? Which I have no idea what is it? But then she said uni loans. Now I learned uni is University?

00:18:49 --> 00:18:53

Okay, so this is a very important question because this is now an issue.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:11

When you give, again, everything I'm saying is not my opinion. When you give an answer about the D when you say this is haram and this is halal. Okay, go and do it. Don't do it. What is the sequences of it on the OMA? So this question comes up very frequently.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:59

Because it's I don't know about Australia, but I can tell you about the United States. It's so expensive to send a child to university. Yeah. And you they the students come out from university, we call it six figures. That's yeah, there's no university per year less than 25,000. That's the minimum. There is universities per year 75 to 100,000 per year. And the medical school, they come out and they are indebted about a million dollar. Yeah, it's very expensive. So now you come in here and you say okay, I'm not going to do loans. Let's say your parents are to two teachers, or your father works and the mother took care of you. So what is their income? And there's a three and four

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

children.

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

So now, Muslim Ummah is facing and this is how scholars reach to this. Now the Muslim ummah, is facing the following. That is either they go and take the loans after they exhaust all the other possibilities,

00:20:17 --> 00:20:26

versus you're gonna say It's haram. And in 50 years 80% of the Muslim ummah, will have a high school

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

degree

00:20:30 --> 00:21:00

because they can go to colleges, prom there, they said the following, and this actually was in England, and this is in the United States, I don't know about Australia, but I'm sure it's the same. Number one, you as parents, from the day you deliver that baby, Mother, do not give get gifts, that gifts is useless open a bank account called college fund.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:41

And anytime you celebrate anything, tell everybody who is going to come and bring you gifts that you don't need. Honestly, they do. A lot of people does do that in the States. Imagine from year one, to the 18th. Right? Every year, whatever it is, he'd if you celebrate birthday, whatever it is, the boy or the girl know they were they got a trophy at whatever it is, say it clearly don't get I have people who said this thing. Don't don't bring any gifts. If you want to get a gift, this just bring a check, it's gonna go to unright on its college fund.

00:21:43 --> 00:22:01

By the time that the son or the daughter ready to go to college, you have a good amount of money, maybe not to cover it all, but at least not gonna get six 700,000. Lord, it may be 100 Number two, and this is all I don't know, again about Australia, but I know this in the States, you will reach out to people.

00:22:02 --> 00:22:18

And I know people did it and reach out to them and ask them for a non interest loan, they called called the Hassan for the Indo Pak people. No interest loans. Pupil will do it. I know that, again, not IRA that I've seen it.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:39

They will do it. They don't have children, for example, or their children grew up and finished and they paid for their education. And now you reach out to them. You got accepted to law school, got accepted to medical school or any school and they said Give it to me, and you write a contract. And then you said I'll pay it.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:53

If you exhaust everything. There's also some organizations. Again, I don't know about Australia, but I know that in the States, there's organizations which give loans non interest those Muslim organizations can this is becoming an issue.

00:22:55 --> 00:22:59

If you exhausted all that, that's when they allowed it.

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

But take the moment no minimum they say yeah, and you don't go and rent an apartment and you can stay with your parents.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:33

Or don't go and do anything extravagant. Take the minimum because that's what they called my Casa de Sharia. The essence of this deen the goal of this dean or the aim of this Dean is what will happen if I say everything is haram? Or I say everything is Hala. What will happen? So for the uni loans again, save save for your children to

00:23:35 --> 00:23:47

to reach out businesses reach out to the rich people go there what's the worst thing they will tell you? No. Okay Hamdulillah I tried and he puts put your ego packet to send it and go and ask

00:23:48 --> 00:23:58

Yeah, because like oh I don't want to go they will say yes or no How do you know maybe they will say yes. And they said no, they said no. And then if this didn't work, then

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

you can

00:24:08 --> 00:24:10

Halal banks

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

are they truly halal?

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

Okay,

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

anything that you need to know what's halal or haram? You have to know they are based on what what is a bank

00:24:26 --> 00:24:32

it's not a place where I'm gonna go and put my money of course I know that. How does bank works?

00:24:34 --> 00:24:35

Bank is a company

00:24:36 --> 00:24:46

like any other company, right? companies sell right? Anything and you make profit. What do bank sell?

00:24:49 --> 00:24:49

Money

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

loans

00:24:53 --> 00:24:57

because they make money from money.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

That's how it is

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

So when you say but can I can I put my money in the bank? Yes, but you put it in a nun interest account. And even that, the hadith of Rasul Allah saw to some applies, say a teaser man, Allah Almighty a time is going to come on my uma that even that person who does not want to deal with any interest, he will be touched by the dust of the interest and how's that when I put my money in the bank what they are doing with my money

00:25:35 --> 00:25:36

giving it for loan

00:25:38 --> 00:25:47

then I am not getting the interest but but the bank is getting it. So Halal bank unless you're playing Monopoly

00:25:57 --> 00:26:15

also, there's a dua about the love of Allah just ACULA higher Allahumma inni so Luca Buck Wahoo Bakula? May your book, while Bakula Amelie yo curry booni la Hubdoc as a dua for soiree, saw to sell your Allah I asked you for your love. You know, when you talk to somebody, please love me.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:25

Right? That's what I'm telling Allah. Because the path to the love of Allah as I shared with you, is not easy.

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

But Allah can make it easy when you ask.

00:26:30 --> 00:26:43

So Allahumma me so Luca, I am begging you and asking you hubback Love Me will help Aquila your book. And I want those who loves you to love me because it's contagious.

00:26:44 --> 00:27:19

Well hum Bakula homily new reborn era haubrich and the love every deed every day because when you love something you will do it and the love of everything that will bring me close to your love your OB Amin and then there is a second part long was Alpha Baka Bella Yemen Neff see what a highly while ma alberi during the Obama there Allah make your love more beloved to me than me. Remember I told you the first obstacle is me, me and people and even the cold water when I am thirsty as a dua actually, I've seen the dellwood they say

00:27:22 --> 00:27:28

and we're going to take the last one because if you're not tired, I am not. And I'm not saying the truth.

00:27:31 --> 00:28:01

Please, this is good one I like when you ask about non Muslims. Because we live among non Muslims. There is a reason why Allah brought you in me and surrounded us by this will be asked about it. I have non Muslim friends but uh, sometimes when they do things that I know goes goes against Allah. I am only capable of praying that they be guided. What am I supposed to do if I wanted to do more?

00:28:02 --> 00:28:14

They act kinder and more Muslim than me. And they act like a Muslim more than me she's saying in actions.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:21

From time to time, I want them to be a Muslim.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

This is beautiful question.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:29

As somebody cares about their friends, and they care about Islam.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:36

Don't say they are kuffaar they're gonna go to Johanna. why you're here.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:39

It's their country.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:45

Why? Why you have died? The Who says you're better. Do you know how you're going to die?

00:28:46 --> 00:28:47

Do you know how they will die?

00:28:48 --> 00:29:01

So this low looking down at the non Muslim needs to change and one of the beautiful things I learned from my first teacher is look, he says, Look at every non Muslim as a potential Muslim.

00:29:04 --> 00:29:10

This morning. This this afternoon actually after Juma I gave a shahada Do you know how old was she?

00:29:13 --> 00:29:14

414.

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

Yeah.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:20

And who introduced her to Islam?

00:29:21 --> 00:29:22

Her two friends.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:34

The friends are in Muslim in a Muslim school. That's the school I visited. Where did they meet her? Because I asked what did you meet

00:29:35 --> 00:29:36

in the library?

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

How many libraries we went?

00:29:41 --> 00:29:46

And she said they talked about it. And the goals are 15 and 50.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:56

And she says I like it. This is what I want to be. Literally she what she said to me because I asked her I said I like this connection.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

And me I was looking at law

00:30:01 --> 00:30:04

Give it to me and to every Muslim 14.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

So absolutely.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:47

However, if they are doing things that is haram obvious, not only you say something, you don't be in that place with them, because it's going to affect you, sooner or later. If you are with people who always backbite, I can assure you, you're going to start backbiting. If you are people who, with who smokes, you will be a smoker. This is actually the first question we asked patients, when they say I'm smokers and out Since what age 14, I said, who smokes in the house. So usually somebody and if not, says all my friends smoke.

00:30:49 --> 00:31:05

If you're going to be and this is actually for us, Muslims, between Muslims, if you're going to be surrounding yourself with Muslims who are not practicing, good luck for your deen is going to disappear. Sooner or later,

00:31:06 --> 00:31:35

you will be affected. It's peer pressure. You all know that. And peer pressure is not only for teenagers, peer pressure is for everybody. And there is a positive peer pressure as I shared with you this morning, and there is a negative peer pressure. If they are doing haram, you should not be with them. True story happened to me and we will end up here. Before I moved to California, I was in St. Louis, Missouri, and I moved to a new neighborhood, the only Muslim they've never seen a Muslim before.

00:31:36 --> 00:31:48

And I was waiting because I said if he didn't ask, I am going to ask. And I am new in this neighborhood. You know, you don't want to you have to be nice to people. But also I have to be I'm almost the moment. Look at this one.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:06

He said I know you don't drink. But do you sit with people who drink?

00:33:08 --> 00:33:14

And I said no. He said that's it. I'm going to tell people everybody we're going to help we're going to serve juice.
