And of course you can do it also for others is that our last pantalla give us more life and more years and longer. But basically, basically in his obedience, any This is one of the jewels that you always say Allah give me longer life in European law, I think it's one of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. So May Allah Subhana Allah accept from all of us, may Allah and Allah give us more life, more time put more Baraka in our time and our efforts to be I mean everybody, whatever you are doing that is pleasing

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

to Allah. So we're going to continue if you remember, two weeks ago,

00:01:39--> 00:02:28

we started this series about Know Your Enemy, know your enemy. And anything you do in life, anything I do in life, we need to know who we are dealing with, how I am going to do it, with what I should prevent on what should I avoid? What should I do? What should I learn? What should I focus on anything? Subhanallah you go for a vacation? That's what you do, you apply for a job, usually you do your homework, as they say, and here we are. It's the same thing. And this is the series is all about let's do our homework. And let's learn about and I called it know your enemy, because that's what our last pantalla said in the Quran, English shaitan and I do

00:02:31--> 00:02:55

shavon The police is your enemy in the world. shaytaan kumawu is to you, you and me, all of us. I do what I do enemy factor, why do you take him as enemy also? And that's the series, The series is know your enemy. So what should I know? Why do I need to know?

00:02:56--> 00:03:52

I will say why do I need to know? How can I not know? Because once I know about him about the enemy, his goals, what does he wants me to do? And then I am I am and we are all of us. We're gonna learn hystrix how he comes to me? How do I fight, and how I will never let him come between me and my goal. My goal, and I say goal, they're not the goal here. And even the goal here, the success engineer in the way pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what is my goal? And you if I will ask or you will ask anybody, anybody? And you say, What do you want from a loss? pantai if I want to add as an engineer in this life, and the hereafter, may Allah make me live happy, and he's pleased with me.

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

And may He give me Jenna. That's what we do. That's what we all want. That's what we all aspire.

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

So I was

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

taught us

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

Who is he? What is he going to do?

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

And how he would do it. And in the first episode we did two weeks ago, we said Who is he? We agreed all his his function

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

within nadie melodica to Julie Adam after surgery, Ilya ugly said can I mean Elgin? Allah said this surah turca have when Allah subhanaw taala asked the angel support straight they all prostrate except a release a release we said the meaning is that creation who was being cursed and pushed away from the mercy of Allah, he was former Legion. So that's the first thing we learned. Number two, we learned that he's, he's my enemy, and your enemy. And what does enemy usually want for me? When somebody is your enemy, what does he do? Or does she or he wants to do they want to hurt me. They don't want to see me in

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

prosperity, living happily getting what I want. That's who he is. His goal is not mainly here. He works here to to make me miserable. But his goal is mainly not to get what he doesn't have.

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

Because Allah cursed him and moved him out of Jannah

00:05:23--> 00:05:36

and that's his goal. You and me, and everybody was listening, his goal that you and I will never see it and will never stay there. Exactly how he is.

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

And he said this and a lot taught us in the Quran.

00:05:42--> 00:06:04

In surah, two out of Malika Mammon haka, alatus, Judah is a more took, why didn't you prostrate when I ordered you? And he said, I am better. Allah said get out. Now he responded poorly on Bernie iommu bathroom. Let me live. Listen to this, let me live till the Day of Resurrection.

00:06:05--> 00:06:56

And Allah said, You are in a comedian mumbling you will live. I'm not gonna let you die. This is a dialogue between Allah and shaper. And then he said habima on the wait any now comes in made oath. by the fact I went astray, I am gonna lose them. Come to them from the front, from the back from the right from the left, and they will not be grateful to you. That's his job. That's his focus. That's what he wants you and me to unlock. He said it's a sort of a solid and he This is even more he made an oath phobia Exotica, all phobia Exotica by your glory Subhan Allah, He knew the majesty of Allah by your glory, I am going to do them all of them.

00:06:57--> 00:07:09

But there is an exception gives hope to me. La vida commune whom Allah say except those who are sincere and the chosen one May Allah make us off

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

among them so here you are.

00:07:13--> 00:07:24

ha I need to learn this from the morning to the moment I open my eyes to the moment I close my eyes I know there is an enemy with me

00:07:26--> 00:07:51

goes inside me walks inside me moves inside me like the blood in the shape on a dream that insane image random or soiree saw to a synapse and the the shape on your beliefs moves inside the human being like the blood goes everywhere. If you look at your body, any part in your body does not have a blood everywhere. This is a fine

00:07:53--> 00:07:58

so what is his ATRIX? what he's going to do? how he's going to come to me.

00:07:59--> 00:08:07

He will whisper we know that when shot really was was your harness, we seek Allah protection from us was the one who whispered

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

okay, but what does he really do? And this is what we need to learn. What does he really do?

00:08:16--> 00:08:25

We need to learn that there is things I do. I do. We do. We open the door, invite him to come.

00:08:27--> 00:09:01

Literally, invite him wouldn't open the door literally. But what we do, or what we say, invite him to come an outcome. These are six things and I'm going to try to make it as easy. May Allah subhanaw taala help me to make it as easy as I can to you. There is six things in our daily life. This is every one of us. Young and old. working professionals staying home educated, still studying doesn't matter. There's six things we do.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

We basically invite shape onto our home.

00:09:07--> 00:09:25

And these are six general there is a lot of under under it and I'm going to share it with you. All of them. All of them comes under excess. superfluous. unnecessary things I do. unnecessary.

00:09:26--> 00:09:53

is not a matter of life or death or it's not really I need I do it. I like it. Everybody does. These extra superfluous, superfluous, unnecessary it absolutely opened the shape or opened the doors and the windows to show you thought let's start one by one. And they call it all of them call it in Arabic followed. Number one. Basically football upon too much eating.

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

Too much eating Subhanallah

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

too much eating at

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

says eating, and it's defined these scholars of the heart, those who wants and focus on how to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:12--> 00:10:42

And these people, they do all the good deeds, all the obligations. But then as many of us say, there's something missing. I pray five times a day, but there's something missing. I don't have this connection with Allah. And these scholars who taught us this number one, the six things that will open the door wide open to save time to come number one too much eating. And what is this too much eating? What is too much eating?

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

How much is too much.

00:10:46--> 00:10:53

And they do find it. Anything. I eat more than what I need.

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

When I eat more than what I need. This is access. Okay, now I'm sure all of you are asking, what is the relationship between food and shavonne?

00:11:08--> 00:11:40

What is the relationship between food and shade one? And let's think that's come to a hadith of roswaal a sort of set up. Some of you may be familiar with mama Agnew. Adam. We are SHABOOM in botany or Swati sought to short run in botany or Swati. salatu salam said this. There is no container the human being you and me feel worse than his stomach. stomach is a container is a vessel

00:11:41--> 00:11:48

and our Swati thought was me said no container the human being filled worse than his stomach.

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

There has to be a reason why are swala now comes in connection between too much food.

00:11:56--> 00:12:03

The habito for Swati sought to serve and shape by once I eat too much what normally happens, I get lazy.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

obeying a law becomes difficult getting up for Salah becomes difficult.

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

This obeying a law becomes easier because I'm lazy and we just have a wasp pantalla who does let's put this principle so we all learn it. And let's be honest, obeying Allah is not easy.

00:12:26--> 00:12:41

disobeying Allah is much easier, much easier. Getting up at six o'clock in the morning versus sitting on my couch watching TV, or watching a movie and I'm talking about something not pleasing to Allah. So too much food

00:12:42--> 00:12:59

makes me lazy. Access food makes me lazy to be to obey Allah makes easier for me to this obey a lot once I am lazy once I don't have this enemy to

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

defend myself or to fight now I am very easy

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

to wrap for shaper

00:13:10--> 00:13:38

Torchwood the crazy shaper comes right there. And when he whispers and he always whispers when he whispers when when when he whispers I normally when I am lazy and I'm too full. I don't have enough energy to even say I'll double whammy shaitan Raji Think of it this way when we eat too much for dinner, how easily I go and do my Shahada for example or my room

00:13:41--> 00:13:51

so too much would think of it everything as see now or something in this he saw a man eating an apple

00:13:52--> 00:14:19

and and he said something in his eating or buying an op ed an apple and he said why you're buying it. Now Apple is not from so I'm not saying this but look at what he's teaching us. And he said I just liked it. And I want to buy it. What's wrong with that? And say no more immediately. Immediately. He said a coolermaster hater storeyed every time you like something you why it

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

every time you like something, he will buy it.

00:14:24--> 00:14:34

it weakens me. It makes my enough's, much stronger, much stronger. The ability to fight shape one much weaker, too much food.

00:14:35--> 00:14:51

Now number two, which is one of the most important too much talk too much talk and what is too much again, superfluous excess and you can easily divided into the following. You have

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

the talk that's haraam and you have the talk that is unnecessary

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

or let's put it tall.

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

That's home talk that is halland.

00:15:03--> 00:15:09

unnecessary. And there is a necessary talk. If we make

00:15:10--> 00:15:32

if we can record ourselves from the morning to evening, which is very difficult, but if we do that, and we listen, and we identify, we're going to find at least 50, if not more percent is unnecessary talk. And one of the beautiful things we learn from Rasul Allah, his Salatu was set out is what

00:15:33--> 00:16:09

do you imagine that and kill him, they used to describe him as he was given the ability to say, to the point in a very short word, make his point in a very few words. And this is one of the draw, we all have to ask a lot to teach us to not speak too long to get to the point less. And why is this adore pushy upon too much talk will lead to same things unnecessary, saying things unnecessarily will lead to either backbiting. Either putting people down, either

00:16:10--> 00:16:47

saying things that is not pleasing to Allah, not proper words, too much talk. Why when I don't talk too much, I can control it, and my heart and my antenna of obeying Allah who say, don't say this that's not pleasing to Allah. And Allah, Swati saltos also said this Hadith, and saving them one new job well, I asked him, I asked him, and he was it's a long Hadeeth where he was basically as Congress what he saw to some about what is Islam and told me and told me and told me, he was telling him all these things, you know, the most important the hump, and then he came to the

00:16:48--> 00:17:03

local American, I'm Nicola, you want me to teach you the basis of everything, the basis of everything. And then he held his tongue. Ali hisar, to set out and he said, I'm sick alika

00:17:04--> 00:17:14

Hold your tongue. Hold your tongue. And also enseigner Mohan Sahabi is a companion says you're a sworn law, are we going to be taken accountable

00:17:15--> 00:17:38

for what we say? And he said, that political May your mother more than you, meaning you die, and your mother mourn you what else will put people in on their faces, or on their noses in the Hellfire, but the harvest harvest of their tongue, harvest of their tongue,

00:17:40--> 00:17:59

too much talk, too much food, too much talk opened the door for shape on when I start talking too much. I am not focusing I don't have control. He comes in starts spitting. People are backbiting I'm listening. They mentioned somebody I don't like and I start

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

on and on and on. Too much food. Too much talk three.

00:18:06--> 00:18:40

And this is the third one is these two are the most important, actually, too much food, I'm sorry, too much to talk and too much interaction with people food, and horrible the quality of the Arabic language, too much unnecessary. Let's get together. Let's go out. And let's go and have a cup of coffee. And let's go out for lunch, let's meet a morning and evening too much interaction with people lead to the first to too much food and too much talk.

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

Too much food and too much talk and I get influenced,

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

I get influenced, we are all weak.

00:18:51--> 00:19:10

And I'm going to come very soon to the types of people in general, but when I am too much interaction there is people we have to meet, we have to interact with people work but when there is too much, and again, the word is excessive, is not the minimum is excessive. And the amount of

00:19:11--> 00:19:59

beautifully. He said people in general, in general, are four kinds. People in general that I interact with is to four kinds. Who are they? He said there is kind of people it's like crude, I need it. Otherwise I cannot survive. Show Panama Who are these, the people I need? And he said those people who will Well, whatever they say or do bring goodness to you and bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala people who are whatever they do whatever they say they bring you closer to a mosque on wattpad. And he said there is so this is the first kind that I need. What are you going to tell me? I don't have anyone I'm going to say yes, with

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

Do hamdulillah and people doesn't mean physically only people I follow on on social media people I listen to, there's a lot of opportunities these days to meet people, who are they are they like food, they will make me they, it's my survival if I don't eat, I'm going to die. And the survival here with people, people who will

00:20:26--> 00:20:39

make me a better human being get me closer to Allah Teach me things. So these are the first kind. Second kind of people are people who are he calls them. These are like medicine, you need it,

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

but not all the time.

00:20:42--> 00:20:56

And who are these people, these are most of the people, basically, your co workers, these are the people who you have no choice but to interact with them. And these people minimize the interaction unless you have to.

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

These are like medicine, because I cannot control these people. So my coworkers, I can't control them. Right? So I will do minimum with them.

00:21:09--> 00:21:48

And then there is the third, there's people he said, it's like a virus Subhan Allah said like a disease. They are like a disease they will make me sing, they will make me sick, social distance, isolation. SubhanAllah. And who are these people, these people who when I sit with them, I spent time with them, these people will make me disobey Allah love to disobeying him. I get lazy on obedience, things that I normally don't do, which is not pleasing to Allah, I start doing basically, what we what we say to our children is

00:21:49--> 00:22:09

peer pressure. These people like sickness like virus you put these days, we have to put the mask and at work, we also have to put God there were shield. These are the third. The fourth kind of people is like a poison they kill you. Those people who will take you away from this name

00:22:11--> 00:22:49

each one of you listening, look around you. Who are who are these people around you, those who you have to be around. Again, the number two, right? There's some some of the relationship I have no choice or loss pantalla will not be happy with me if I cut it, but can I modify it? Can I minimize it? Can I be the positive influence instead of they are the negative if an employee was it's it's easy said it's not too easy to be done, but it's possible with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:22:50--> 00:23:20

So you have four kinds of people, the more now back the more I have excessive interaction with people, chances is chances are I am going to be meeting most of these people if not all of them, and it's going to be tough for me to fight at all. So the d'oeuvres of cython that I invite him and I open it by eating too much. talking too much. Too much interaction. Too much interaction with people number four.

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

Too much looking.

00:23:25--> 00:23:45

How long, too much looking what is too much excessive looking, excessive looking at things that will hurt me. And I'm not talking necessarily only about haraam, even too much halaal By the way, they say even too much holler too much things that is permissible. It makes me one them

00:23:46--> 00:24:35

too much looking. So you look at the harar Malaya the villa you look and Ronnie there is when you go and walk outside there's so many things. I you see it around you I'm not gonna be able to change everything around you. But I can do one thing. I can lower my gaze. I have the control. I can lower my eyes. I don't have to look lower, but there is things is my choice. When I have the remote and I'm looking at I'm flipping the channels. It's my choice. When I am reading, flipping when I am surfing the net, that's my choice. What is my eyes looking at? This is a door for a THON and this is why I'm I'm stressing on this because we cannot come and say my shavon is a strong that is something

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

you hear it you know what I cannot find him. Well, let's close the doors.

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

Like you have a tornado or you have a really severe wind. What do we do let everything open now we will get hurt, but close it. So let's close these doors that are Swati salatu salam tonsils are locked autos and the righteous scholars taught us

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

So that's for number five.

00:25:03--> 00:25:13

Listening. It's basically our senses listening, superfluous, excessive, unnecessary listening, what I am listening to

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

people talking, what are they seeing? What are they saying?

00:25:19--> 00:25:41

Listening to enter into a discussion what they are talking about, is it's gonna make me I say this to myself all the time to questions. Is it gonna make me a better servant to Allah? Is it gonna make me a better human being? Because these are two important things. Better servant to Allah is gonna make me a better human being on this earth.

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

And they are both conducted.

00:25:45--> 00:26:02

Because if I am a good servant to Allah, truly, I am a good human being on this earth. And if I am a good human being on this earth, with my right belief, I am a good servant Allah. What am I listening to? songs, music, talk,

00:26:03--> 00:26:43

again, on the net, getting together, sitting in a in a gathering, you have no control, you didn't go. But they are saying things that is, let's say how long you leave. You go and find something, get you busy. If you cannot change it, sometimes I can't. If you can change it, sometimes you can't. If you hear it too, even from your children, from your friends say it in a nice way. That's not good. That's not pleasing to Allah. That's backbiting. I don't want people to say this about me. How can I do it for the others for a summer? Too much, and a lot of Santa Ana said it.

00:26:44--> 00:27:04

In Surah 24, on the criterion, it's it's one of the most beautiful chapters in the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala and this chapter, may Allah make you and me in all of us by saying a bad man, a bad man is the servant of the All Merciful.

00:27:05--> 00:28:03

Who are these? Who are these and he mentioned criterias but comes to one that is applicable for us today. When levina lay a shadow in a zoo. What is our motto below we Maru kerama they do not say that stock players, they don't witness for any false hood, no false testimony. And if they pass by superfluous, below, unnecessary talk, they pass it. See how Allah described pass it. He didn't say they will stop it and everything because you cannot all the time, pass it tomorrow kerama they passed, gentle, they passed with dignity, pass it. And the more you do it one line that they allow, the more you do it, the more you ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect you, he will protect you. He

00:28:03--> 00:28:17

will protect you. Your law, protect my eyes, your law, protect my ears, your law protects my tongue, protect my stomach, he will because you know you want to do it to please Him, because these are the keys to him.

00:28:18--> 00:28:42

And then the sixth one, the six doors I open and shade line is going to come and then he will work. What I'm going to take you next to too much sleep. Too much sleep. Now the hours how much sleep everybody is different scholars of the heart, they say minimum your body will need is about six hours.

00:28:44--> 00:29:03

More than eight hours is too much. Six to eight depends who are you, as long as your body have enough energy to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as your body has enough energy to obey last pantalla now what is the relationship between sleep and shape?

00:29:05--> 00:29:08

What is the sleep has to do with shaitan with a blease.

00:29:09--> 00:29:10

Too much sleep.

00:29:12--> 00:29:45

I am lazy. laziness is from shaitan is one of his tricks. comes to me Make me lazy, because laziness are not going to be able to obey a law or fight this obedience. And that's why one of the doers one of the supplications we turn to Allah says you're not weaker. And then how many what hasn't? Well at Zoo and Castle, I seek refuge in You. Anytime I seek refuge in Allah. That means if I don't shape one is going to take over.

00:29:46--> 00:29:48

It's either shape on or less pantalla.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

When I seek refuge in Allah, he's protecting me from the enemy. And in this dua and this supplication I say Allah, please, I seek refuge in You from being lazy.

00:30:01--> 00:30:25

So six things I do in my day, my choice. That's why I keep reminding and repeating. It is my choice. My choice. These six things, I do it excessively. It will make me an easy prey to shape one, PR UI. Easy. He will say yeah,

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

now it's the time.

00:30:29--> 00:30:56

Too much talk. Too much interaction with people excessive. Too much sleep. Too much. Listening excessive, superfluous. Too much eating and too much. Listening. Excessive, specially listening is superfluous. I'm not going to say too much to center or on hamdulillah pure, but unnecessary. superfluous, let alone a turtle.

00:30:57--> 00:31:03

So memorize these six. Now, let's say I fell in this one.

00:31:04--> 00:31:11

What how he's going to come now. So I opened the door. He's going to come, what he's going to do, how he's going to do it.

00:31:12--> 00:31:26

One thing we need to remember that there is shouting and ins and shouting in a region that is shouting is the devils are from Jin as we described last week, last time,

00:31:27--> 00:31:34

but from human beings, there is human beings acts subservient to shaitan

00:31:35--> 00:32:08

they in their talk or in their what they do or what they invite, they do they sort of the shaitan purpose. And Allah said this is not my words. Allah said this is what will enhance academic education nikolina Bina hadoo one shell Tina NC one Jimmy you Hey Bob Amitabha Alvin zakura Falco and this is how Allah said this and sortal no tickets 112 the verse and this is how we have made for every Navy

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

enemies I do what enemies from people are the one shouting

00:32:15--> 00:32:19

devils from among people and devils from among

00:32:20--> 00:32:20

Jean

00:32:21--> 00:32:28

what do they do you use a baba baba zakharova polio do they act by

00:32:29--> 00:32:31

learning to talk

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

so let's see this

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

here i am

00:32:37--> 00:33:26

i did these six that now I learned and I never connected one plus one equal to I never thought eating too much or talking too much or listening to superfluous things will make me an easy prey to say upon now we learned it and I want each one of you try it or pay attention I wouldn't say try it out the builder but I will say pay attention see when you eat too much what happens when you talk too much what happens in your relationship with a loss pantalla what happens to my heart? What happens to my focus what happens to my relationship with our last panel with Todd so here I am doors open windows open they are in how he is going to work on me or you or you this beautiful books

00:33:26--> 00:33:31

Subhan Allah and Britain books volumes written about this number one

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

number one tricks of the shavon to make me disobeying a law or not obey your law number one he's gonna be calling teaches me through people

00:33:49--> 00:33:52

or through him directly his whisper.

00:33:53--> 00:33:59

Calling act of disobedience in another name in a beautiful names.

00:34:01--> 00:34:07

What does that mean? Calling disobedient to align a different name. For example.

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

Alcohol

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

is home.

00:34:13--> 00:34:16

Right? Let us share it on.

00:34:17--> 00:34:30

What did chip on did and change it? Right? Nobody when they sell alcohol, they say it's an intoxicant is going to cause liver disease. When once you get

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

drunk you can get you can do things and say things may be harmful. No one say about that. They call it in different names. And the names is usually nice and beautiful and French and this type and that type. That's shaitan trick. He changed it to make it nice. Basically it's how it is to make it nice, especially in the beginning. Once we get to the habit of the disobedience

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

That's it, he won. Now it becomes much harder for me to overcome it. For example, another thing and Allah said it in the Quran. This is how I was teaching. When shavon

00:35:14--> 00:35:19

wanted Satan Adam to eat from the tree.

00:35:21--> 00:35:55

What did he call it? He didn't say if you're going to eat it, Allah is going to be upset with you. Allah is not going to be happy with you. Look what he said. Some sort of Baja Kalia Adam ado, look at Hana. schelotto holdie wolky. Nyah, Bella, let's translate. He said, Yeah, Adam, do you want do you want me to guide you? Pay attention? guide you should still hold the tree that will make you live forever in Jannah while milking Leia yabla, and then you will have sovereignty and

00:35:56--> 00:36:17

live forever. You will never perish? Of course, I'm gonna do it. I want to live forever in Jannah. Of course, I'm not gonna die. Of course he did. We say this is what Allah told you not to do. You are disobeying Allah, don't you get close to it. And that's how Satan Adam fell in the trap.

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

This is exactly how we come to you and me.

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

The first word I always

00:36:26--> 00:36:37

try to remind myself, what's wrong with it? What is the big deal? Why we are making it a big deal. Anytime I say this, let's not judge people.

00:36:38--> 00:36:40

I need to bring this a statement

00:36:41--> 00:36:43

and see what Allah says about it.

00:36:44--> 00:36:51

If Allah said it's okay, it's not a big deal. Alhamdulillah. But if it is the other way around, and this is how shaitaan comes to me.

00:36:52--> 00:37:15

For example, and I, we last week, we talked about hijab proper Islamic dress for the woman shaitaan is not going to come to me, and when I don't want to do it, or I can do it, or when I have been doing it and took it, take it off. It's not gonna come and tell me why you are doing this. Why you are disobeying the law? No. He's going to come and say

00:37:16--> 00:37:47

it's a choice. It's your choice. I must partner with Allah knows what's in your heart. Allah knows you're a good woman. He knows you have pure intention. I was all for all Rahim. Allah is all forgiving, for all merciful, and that I feel good about it. That's his way. That's his way. And I should never fall into that trap. I should never fall in that trap.

00:37:49--> 00:38:03

The opposite is also true. He, he makes me believe makes us believe that this will be the names of obedience to Allah gives it a different name.

00:38:04--> 00:38:11

Makes me don't like it. Don't like it, and makes the people that I trust people I don't like them.

00:38:12--> 00:38:46

The way he comes to me and Allah also gave us examples in the, in the Quran. When when, for example, if you look at surah to hood and so on, or off, what did the people who didn't believe in the prophets, what did they call them? They didn't call the prophets. They said You're crazy. You're a magician. You actually you have been out of your mind all these meanings. So he comes so I want to put example, this coming Thursday, short date, right? short day

00:38:47--> 00:38:55

11 hours and I want to fast extra good deed right? How she thought comes to me to make me not fast.

00:38:56--> 00:39:15

But today you have this thing you have to do with and when you when you you that you for example, you have to do this thing. And he comes to me and says you may not do it the best because you're fasting. You may feel Haddock, you will not be able to do this thing or that thing. Well,

00:39:16--> 00:39:28

that is trick. That's his trick. Next week we're going to come and when we finished the series, what what is the medicine? How do I fight his tricks? After I know them? What should I do?

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

So here you go. Every good deed, every good deed for example, you hearing somebody, somebody backbiting, talking?

00:39:39--> 00:39:57

Right? And so you know, you should not listen. And you know, you may you need to do something about it. What does shutdown come is going to say, yeah, yeah, they are backbiting that's haram Majid Allah in the Quran about it. No, no, because you know, I'm not gonna do it. He comes in and tells me

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Well, if you're gonna say

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

Something you hear this inside you? Well, if you say this, they will get upset with you. They will not listen to you why you're wasting your energy.

00:40:09--> 00:40:34

You don't know how they will respond. These are all hystrix changes makes us makes us all make the good deeds that Allah loves, gives it another name and gives it another name. That's another thing. I'll take your questions at the end. So if anyone has questions, if you can just hold on it, so we don't lose it in the chats, and we will come to it.

00:40:36--> 00:40:54

How does he work also. So here we go. Number one, pay attention to these first two things. First two things he makes the obedience to Allah call a different name in a way that is not pleasing to Allah. So I get either scared, or I get discouraged.

00:40:56--> 00:41:03

And he makes the disobedience to Allah. Beautiful, easy, and it's not a big deal.

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

And he does this gradually.

00:41:07--> 00:41:22

One of his ways, he doesn't come right away and hit he gums gradually, gradually. And last pantalla said, this is sort of to know, you already know I'm on laughter to do what is shavon.

00:41:24--> 00:41:43

all believers don't follow the footsteps of shavon locati. Allah said, this is a sort of Northern Light. Don't follow the footsteps of shaitan what his footsteps one by one. And we follow one by one, give you an example.

00:41:45--> 00:41:48

Look at someone, look at someone.

00:41:49--> 00:42:01

Let's not talk about somebody. Let's talk about ourselves. Right? If I reached a point where I am getting very lazy in my sight out

00:42:03--> 00:42:11

very lazy. And most of the time I miss one or two during the day, or I do with the last minute.

00:42:12--> 00:42:13

Very quickly.

00:42:14--> 00:42:30

Take a moment, sit down and try to remember, ask Allah to remind you, well, how did you get there? How did you get there, especially if you were always doing them on time. It's usually step by step.

00:42:31--> 00:43:20

One of the six things first I said, We open the door, one of them, two of them or all of them. And he comes in gradually usually starts with some don't do it. It's only son. It's only son, don't do it. And then advant comes in, and then you hear it. And I just ate to watch or I listened to something that's not pleasing to Allah. And I'm lazy. Macomb says there's still more time, more time and more time. And I go and I go and very gradual. Nobody within 24 hours change from this to this. It's usually takes time because he works gradually because he knows suddenly it's not going to work. But then the more I respond to him, the more he will work much quicker.

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

So he goes gradually, for way comes to me. He you hear it? This is the best thing for you. He comes and act like he is a good, sincere, faithful person who is advising you for the best. And you hear it. This is good for you.

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

You will you will feel it. Maybe you don't see it now but you will see it later on. When Allah conocer phoned me and he saved this. And Allah Swati Salatu was Salam in a beautiful Hadith all the had the supper or Swati sorta sounds beautiful. But this one actually it saved them why the new Java? I'm sorry, Satan with a little half hour it entered the masjid. Look at this. He entered the masjid. Right and he sat next door Swati Sato center of Swanee. salatu salam looked at him and he said yeah, by the Tao administrator.

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

He said yeah,

00:44:23--> 00:44:30

seek refuge in Allah from the shavon you are in the masjid with our Swati software set up.

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

Think of this. Yeah, whether tower biLlahi I'm sorry Tao with the biLlahi Michelle Tina lincy. Origen seek refuge in Allah from the Shaitan of the ins and agenne.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

So he comes and he whispers, and he whispers and sing in the story of Satan Adam in Jannah. When he came to them to eat from the tree, what did he say?

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

Wha sama Houma in Nila Kumar Lamanna Nasir Hey. And he said, on eat with you, I am really sincerely advising you pay attention paid, Yanni, we all really have to pay attention. This is why. One of the ways the most important way to get stopped to stay strong to stay connected with a loss pantalla to not get weaker and weaker, is spent time alone. And I mean alone completely alone, not with the gadgets and the phone and no alone with a law. And that will give you clarity. You can look inside you you can hear, you can see one line that they allow. And the more time you spend with this, the more you're clear, and you start seeing and you can hear shaitan is talking to you and loading you

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

are loading loading me

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

and

00:45:59--> 00:46:01

my lukumi dinar and

00:46:03--> 00:46:39

so he's a very righteous man. And he says, The say our theme of the ends, the people, the people who act as the shape on X, they are much worse than the shaitan himself. And they said Why is that? He said because shade nine. One, he whispered, I say oh wha Pandora Jim and I can fight. But the shape one of the people, the people who speaks to me and lower me and make me weaker, these people easily pull me to this, we didn't have a last pantah

00:46:40--> 00:46:50

Subhan Allah. Last thing and I'm going to go through this quickly so I can have some time for your questions and answers, generally.

00:46:51--> 00:47:14

So six things, I opened the door he comes, then he start changing my perspective. He changes my perspective of her on becomes highlight of halaal and obedience becomes difficult and unnecessary. Why do I need to do that? And works gradually, gradually through him whisper and through people.

00:47:15--> 00:47:25

One of things I see changing in me, or I see it around me and I know shaitan is working very well. Number one,

00:47:26--> 00:47:51

and this is whether it is in the family, in the community, between friends, between coworkers, coolie colleagues, is when there is hatred and Ill feeling between people. This is usually how shape bond works. That's when this happens shape on one. One this happens shape on one.

00:47:52--> 00:48:36

And why is that? Our Swati Salatu was Salam Allah when I was reading this heavy This is in the body. When I was reading this Hadith, I was like Shinola he was sitting around joie de Soto center, and two people, these people are Sahaba they are with him. They were arguing, quarreling, their voices became loud, and one of them and they and their faces become red. You know, when somebody gets angry and sweaty, sort yourself, looked at the other companions, and he said look at their faces. Look how it is they are arrived, Shay Dawn is taking them over and he said I know a word. If he said it, he will he will.

00:48:38--> 00:48:46

He the meaning of it. If he say that word, what is he feeling is going to go away? If he said I will be like my shaitan Raji.

00:48:48--> 00:49:21

shaitan comes in between people. How can she say that? How can he says, How can they do this? Aren't they this and then gradually hatred, and then ill feelings and backbiting and the relationship specially between Muslims comes worse and worse and worse. That's number one goal. He works on diligently. Number two, this is individually ill feeling of people. That's what he does. He will feed ill.

00:49:22--> 00:49:32

People in the thinking of people. Oh, why she said that, all why they are doing this. And although Swati salatu salam

00:49:33--> 00:49:59

he wasn't a T calf. And a cedar sofiya his wife came to visit him. Then as she was leaving, and this is after the hijab. So she was covered. He walked her out to the door of the masjid. Two of the Sahaba companions came in. Immediately he looked at them, and he said in her Sophia, this is Sophia, my wife, they said Yasser Allah How can we even

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

In about you and he said look what he said initially via your blog terminal insanity novolog dumb shavon devil more with through the human being like the blood, the one I shared with you. And I was worried he is going to throw in your hearts some ill thinking any time I think ill of someone

00:50:25--> 00:50:37

of someone or people I need to say all the wisdom shaved down Raji. shaytaan is working on me. Because this usually will lead to more and more and more. So he

00:50:39--> 00:51:04

create, bring hatred between people feel feelings, you're thinking about human beings. He works in making the obligation less important. This is for the good people. This is for the righteous people. He makes obligation less important and not obligation more important.

00:51:05--> 00:51:29

Subhan Allah Subhan Allah so here you are, here you are, you have guests coming, right? In my last pantalla live the COVID. And we go back to our normal life, Europe biyani. And you have guests, now honoring your guest is Asana, taking care of them is asuna. Right? What happens, I am so busy and focused on this good deed that I miss my obligatory Salah, that's shaitan.

00:51:30--> 00:52:15

And he won. So he moves things, makes me do things, they're all good, but they're his priorities changes my priorities. So think about that. He makes me worries about things less important for me in this life of the hereafter. And I so much worry about it, that I do not worry about the most important, my life, my meeting with Allah pantalla my life in the grave. But I worry so much about this and this and he said, and she said, this is all his whispers of his whispers somehow, one of the things he he'll do, also, he makes me

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

think of myself too much above reality, or less.

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

arrogant, I become arrogant. So I do something good. And then you start hearing Wow, you say not people, you say, all martial law. I'm good. Nobody likes me. Oh, they need all this from sidebar. All these are from shavon. And the last but not the least. And the most important one. He makes me afraid of him. And he makes me afraid of poverty being poor.

00:52:54--> 00:53:06

afraid of him and his allies. So I am afraid of people more than I am afraid of our last panel with Tyler. And he makes me afraid of being poor and poverty.

00:53:07--> 00:53:37

What makes us more generous. What makes us not give what makes us work too hard, too too hard that we miss our obligations to a lot because we're worried when we get older. Do we have enough money? What will happen to our children? That's a trick of shaitan in law who are reserved for the courting meeting, Allah is the one who gives sustenance. In the law, what was up he is the one who gives sustenance, don't over strong, strong.

00:53:38--> 00:53:45

And then he makes me afraid of people more than I am afraid from a loss Pantheon. How many times we hear what people will say about me.

00:53:47--> 00:53:50

And then I should respond to what Allah will say about me.

00:53:51--> 00:54:42

May Allah subhanho wa Taala er be me, teach us what is beneficial for us? May he not only teach us what's help us to practice keep us a strong European mean May Allah make us of those? Is the new owner qualified to be on Asana from those people who listen to the best words of admonition and not only listen, but follow the best among getting your beer me. I'm going to take some of your questions. And let me get to this the problem worse than when we get diseased, how to overcome our heart. This is very good question. Very good question.

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

and I am tested as we shall get mentally as well as physically weak, so true. So true. This is also one of his tricks. Let's look at it and I may spend a little bit time about this, but this is especially these days.

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

So I am being tested whether I am sick physically whether I am sick mentally whether I am tested why what is lost my job it's a test test on this life How do I fight shaped by how do I fight shavon

00:55:20--> 00:55:24

number one number one thing called the six things I discussed in the beginning

00:55:26--> 00:55:42

don't open the door don't open the door This is why I want to throw the door and the tricks and how he applies it don't eat too much don't sleep to watch even if it is less you say I cannot I say okay you eat you sleep eight hours make it seven and a half

00:55:44--> 00:55:45

00:55:46--> 00:55:53

with it with it. Turn to Allah and ask him to make you strong.

00:55:54--> 00:55:56

What this is amazing

00:55:57--> 00:56:30

especially when you are in your lowest moment this is how a lot respond. Yeah oneness and to move for Carl Illa Allah who were gunning Hamid all people a lot of this sort father old people and to call out You are the beggars You are the one in need and Allah is self sufficient. He doesn't need so when I feel so down mentally I can do anything I'm like paralyzed but I can still stock internally turned to him and says yeah, are we awaiting the one you are strong? Give me strength.

00:56:32--> 00:56:45

Let me go through this helped me talk to a lot. A lot of the level he will never let you down. Never ever. If I don't then I have mine f smile weakness and shavon is going to come

People lied, people did something not good to you. Turn to Allah and ask for forgiveness and see what Allah subhana wa tada will do?

May Allah reward you, brother Omar, when dealing with friends or family members that are older than us, how do we approach

00:57:34--> 00:57:38

them to tell them we shouldn't back bite or eat excessively?

00:57:39--> 00:57:50

This is all goes under admirable model for now. Where are you enjoying good and prevent evil? Number one, I say this to myself before anyone else. I need to practice it.

00:57:51--> 00:57:55

Practice. Be the example people will follow you.

00:57:56--> 00:58:01

Number one, number one. Now here I am sitting with elderly.

00:58:03--> 00:58:13

And I got a question just two days ago. It's like the grandmothers, right? And they always talk negative about this and that. Can I change the subject?

00:58:14--> 00:58:42

Because you cannot say this is backbiting This is how long you're gonna be they will it they will not listen. How can I do it? Number one, I'm going to say the same thing I said to the sister asked a law, your law. The law helped me and esteana Billa seeking help from Allah is an act of worship. Yeah, can you do what you can to stay? You Allah, we seek help. And we,

00:58:43--> 00:58:57

we worship You, we worship and You we seek help. So ask Allah when you are in this situation, in any situation, when you feel you're chained? When you feel you don't have a lot of way out your law make me find me away.

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

Can you change the topic.

00:59:02--> 00:59:04

If you cannot change the topic, excuse yourself,

00:59:06--> 00:59:06

leave,

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

go do something.

00:59:10--> 00:59:31

And then when you find a moment, that they will be listening to you in a nice gentle way. Let's say this is your grandmother, right? Go and see what your grandmother loves. Let's say your grandmother loved chai tea, or coffee or something. Go and get her to kiss her hand. Kiss her head. That's a bad that's pleasing Allah and then say

00:59:33--> 00:59:37

let's not talk about people. Something in this very gentle nice way.

00:59:38--> 00:59:59

Maybe they will not listen to the first time maybe they will not listen to the second part will line Livio now it will work because you want to please Allah. And anytime you want to please Allah, it's not only you southla is helping you see when we want to disobey Allah shavon helps. It's the opposite is true. When I want to obey Allah

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

Allah, Allah will never, ever let me down. Subhana Allah let me see if there is more.

01:00:08--> 01:00:09

There's more comments here.

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

What is the kibble and how does shavonne bring us their kibble? arrogance? I think I'm better than other people. That's arrogance. Either because I'm more beautiful. I know more. I'm taller, I'm shorter, I have more children. I'm richer. I have more educated, whatever, I cook better something. I think, by the way, not necessarily. It's true. I think I think I am better than this. You know, what is the common statement of kibber? People say, when somebody gets something, they get a job. You didn't get it? I didn't get it. Why did she take what? How can she get it? I'm better. I should have got it. That's a statement of kibble exactly what she wanted. So this is the statement, and

01:00:55--> 01:00:58

Shavasana brings us there by

01:00:59--> 01:01:03

praising that's why don't praise people too much.

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

They deserve which praise them. But don't praise them too much. And most importantly, don't ask for praise. You know how we ask for praise when we do something. For example, mothers when they cook, right, and they put the food on the table. They are waiting for the praise. And nobody said anything. So what do you think of the food? Don't ask for praise. But Saraswati Salatu was set out when he saw

01:01:32--> 01:01:47

a man praising too much his brother. He said kasanka you broke his back? Because you praise, infiltrate, inject enemy keba I think I'm better. So this is how he works.

01:01:50--> 01:02:18

I will take one more if there is a question. No 100 lacquer on black how question. Changes in life and feeling of jealousy and sadness. And Allah? What should a Muslim do when they see fellow Muslims has been blessed with happiness, such as new job marriage? Very realistic question. So to hear, let's say, here I am. Here I am. I am

01:02:19--> 01:03:09

hamdulillah. Everybody say I'm very smart. I'm very hard working, right? And then I apply for a job, I don't get it. And I see somebody else who is not as hard working. It's true. I'm not making it up, and they get better better. This is what I will say my sister O'Meara. Number one, think of the names of Allah number one name of Allah is a laddle. Allah is the just, we need to live with this. The V, just everything he does. Everything he allows, everything he doesn't allow, everything he takes away is just so when I see something, I think this is not fair. Immediately I tell myself, Allah allowed it,

01:03:10--> 01:03:15

then Allah knows better than I do. One. Number two,

01:03:16--> 01:03:26

people when they have material things, things of this life, not necessarily brings happiness, not necessarily they are happy. I need to remind myself,

01:03:28--> 01:03:37

and Allah said that most of the Muslims knows us and technology and will hate on them. You may hate something, dislike something. And it's good for you.

01:03:40--> 01:04:15

To fight these feelings I need and I said this many times I said it last week when we talked about why a woman gets weaker remove a job, we need to work on our relationship with our loss paradigm. If I know him very well, very well. Not only when I need him, when I know him. When I know he is the just when I know he is our man, the old merciful, when I know his ideal. He is the old capable. everything around me falls in under this umbrella. What do I know? What do we know?

01:04:16--> 01:04:17

What can we do?

01:04:18--> 01:04:36

So when you see this, and when you get the feeling and we all do, we're human beings shaitaan comes through this jealousy. And you say how do I seek refuge in Allah? And it has said from jealousy from ill feeding from ill feeding and ask Allah Subhana Allah to remove it.

01:04:39--> 01:04:43

Can shavon read our minds?

01:04:44--> 01:04:56

We don't have a proof he does. We don't know. We don't wait. He he whispers he whispers and he sees us. He whispers and he sees us.

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

There was one question does that

01:05:00--> 01:05:29

La Jolla. There was one question and I will end because we passed but it's okay if we didn't back by but let's take this one. We did the backbite although we know it's big sin, but we forgot what what we forget doing it and then realize very common usual. Why right? This is one we talked about excessive interaction with people too much socialization. This is how we deal with usually, how do we backbite we're not we're alone.

01:05:31--> 01:05:42

Either texting, posting, or talking. So let's socializing and interaction which will protect me from this, I fell in the trap.

01:05:43--> 01:06:12

I didn't pay attention and here I am. The first I went I remember whether it is immediately whether it is later on number one, there's two things I violated in this May Allah forgive us all. Myself. Number one, I violated the rights of Allah hunted because I disobeyed him and I did a major sin. Allah said that in the Quran, I took my Akala t meter, does anyone of you love to eat the flesh of the brother or the system?

01:06:13--> 01:06:58

I need to ask forgiveness from Allah always. And Allah said this in Al Hassan RT with eveness say at good deeds, remove bad deeds, immediately ask forgiveness from Allah, do a good deed is the one asking for forgiveness is a good deed. Give a charity help someone do a good deed around and do two extra something good deed. Now the second thing I did I violated the rights of a loss handler but I violated the rights of that person. This is a huge problem May Allah forgive us all that person whoever is he or she on the day of judgment? If he or she does not forgive me, I am going to be taken accountable for that action.

01:06:59--> 01:07:22

If I can and ask for forgiveness that's perfect as long as the my forgiveness is not going to cause issues if I can't or I know if I'm asking for forgiveness it will create issues then I make up for that person good the same I do for myself yeah ALLAH forgive them yeah Allah give them genetic for dose you're allowed make them the happiest people then you remove it.

01:07:24--> 01:08:09
