week of eight weeks, inshallah we're going to be covering. You may wonder why the why this topic does anyone think is anyone's thought Why did I choose this topic? And yeah, of course, we know what we believe in.

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

Why

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

basics why?

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

So we understand. Yeah. Any other reason?

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

Really, Mashallah. So everybody is perfect here?

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

Well, if you are in my shoes, or you are where I am,

00:01:50--> 00:02:00

as time goes by the questions that comes to us, and I'm sure if you speak to any chef will tell you the same thing has changed dramatically.

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

Regardless of the age, like 10 years ago, 15 years ago, the questions comes from the youth, the questions comes from mother is completely different. And these days,

00:02:13--> 00:02:28

I don't want to say we are going through crisis. It's the whole world going through crisis, but we Muslims, unfortunately, are getting affected. And this is one of the issues of the internet. And we are all living as if we are living in one country or one home.

00:02:30--> 00:02:53

The issue of belief, and I need the mothers to open their mind and hearts before the youth is an issue the youth are suffering from and not very young girls. The basics that when we were growing up, we never thought about even not even doubt or a talk or question is the norm

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

is the norm. People are doubting everything.

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

And if you have if you don't know about it, then talk to your daughters.

00:03:04--> 00:03:39

And be realistic because if you are going to deny it, it's there is nothing is going to change. And I'm not trying to scare you I need all of us to be aware because how we will address a problem or solve a problem unless we know there is a problem. And we are what is the problem? If I'm gonna say no it's not in my house I am going to tell you then you're not living in the world. I met at 7016 years old that last weekend I was out of town and this is a beautiful soul. She looked at me and says And I'll leave you alone this is her word she said everyone in my school

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

tried the drugs in the bathroom

00:03:45--> 00:03:51

every one I said everyone she said everyone and I didn't want to ask her because I don't want to know the answer.

00:03:53--> 00:04:01

So we need all to be aware because this is what our youth are getting exposed to you will like it you don't like it it's reality.

00:04:02--> 00:04:17

It's reality. It's everywhere. It's being brought up as this is the norm This is the beauty This is the then you can fit in easily all these words you hear it? And the second thing is actually the face.

00:04:18--> 00:04:53

Face people make fun I had youth come to me so they make fun of me. A beautiful soul. I couldn't I mean, I should have taken her permission took her picture she was sitting exactly this on the floor. Yeah, exactly. Okay. And you look at this girl and you say this girl mashallah was like well what is your mom I want to meet your mom this is all last weekend. And then she said can I talk to you and I was like I know when they want to use want to talk to you alone. There is a major issue she doesn't want to anymore. And then I said Sure so we walked out exactly walked out of the Masjid. She looked at me and starts crying and says I'm struggling

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

and this is if you look at how do you think this girl mashallah isn't struggling with what you're struggling?

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

Think with my faith.

00:05:02--> 00:05:40

Tama and I plan this before I talk to this girl, you look at her she's an angel. She's I'm the only one in the school. The only one in the school looks like this. Now this is youth, don't you think the older is better? No. If you work is an issue if you don't work is an issue because the the media, the TV, everything is bombarding us with what we all grew up with. Literally yesterday I had this request from someone is like they wanted to intern interview me. And the question she asked, and I'm so glad she asked. And I was like, I don't think I can do that.

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

Because I'm not going to compromise my need to please people. She said, but we need to be inclusive. I said then that I'm not the right person.

00:05:49--> 00:06:20

So you only need to wake up, and I'm going to take absolutely I'm going to speak very basics. I'm not going to speak after the class to the scholars or to the students of knowledge. I'm going to talk to us all people live in this day and age, August 2022. In the Western world, in all what around us and all the distractions we are having. And the first question is, what do we believe in as Muslims? Anybody have asked you this question wherever you are at work in school, what do we believe in?

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

Can anyone answer me because I want you to talk to me? Yes, please.

00:06:27--> 00:06:49

One Creator, one, one. I love the one because the one has many names and attributes. So we believe in one in the one not saying one in the one. And this is basically what our soiree Serato Sinha taught us in a very famous Hadith I'm sure everybody in this room, if you don't know what you've heard about it, what is its Hadith called?

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

It has a name.

00:06:55--> 00:07:01

Don't be scared. It's okay if you're wrong. It's okay when learning what is the big deal? Anybody?

00:07:03--> 00:07:26

Hadith Jabri, they call it will say in the Jubilee or soiree, saw two cinemas sitting in the masjid this hadith narrated by say Na Ma, you're sitting in the masjid. And then they all were sitting, it's a normal thing. The Halina man came in, should you do by your will would surely do by our car because it looks very white and dressed very white. Doesn't look like a traveler, and no one of us know him. So who is this?

00:07:27--> 00:07:46

And then he came and sat described his sitting exactly his knees next to the knees, in front of the knees of Roswaal risottos. And he said, Dr. Mohamed, and then he said Arjuna he calls him by his name. Yeah, Muhammad. And then he asked him the basics. Herbert in the analyst, Islam, you all know this hadith, right?

00:07:47--> 00:07:57

What is Islam and then the five pillars of Islam, and then said, Bernie and Iman, what do we believe in? And he said, and termin Billa the one you believe in Allah? Why? Well,

00:07:59--> 00:08:27

we'll go to books, angels, books never yield. And then the day of judgment and the destiny, good or not good for us or what we perceive. And then he says, bernia annaliesa and tell me what is excellence? What is that sir? Which you all know tabula Ana Katara for Atlanta, Quinta, Rafa, in New York, you worship Allah as if you are seeing him. And if you don't see him, he sees you. Why I'm saying this, because when he left,

00:08:28--> 00:08:34

when he left the Sahaba out of there other than etiquette with Roswaal as Auto Salon, they didn't utter a word.

00:08:35--> 00:08:50

If this is me, and he was like, Who is this person? Why you're asking what does that mean nothing. And then say Roswell is auto center and you say normally says that could you believe? Jah? Kuya Halima Cuttino is Gibreel came to teach you your religion.

00:08:51--> 00:09:09

Gibreel came to teach you your religion. So what is it, Stan? What do I believe in? I believe in things here and I do things. And the first thing we need to believe in is the one. Now if I ask you who's Allah?

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

And don't answer me answers, you have memorized it in school.

00:09:16--> 00:09:23

I want an answer from your heart. So when you talk to them, you can give it to them. Who's Allah?

00:09:25--> 00:09:45

That's translationally adjustment God. And I actually even with my non Muslim friends, I always use the word Allah. Because for us, this is unique. Everyone else call him God, but for us, we call them Allah. And they get and they get it very easily all my friends done alone. Oh, Allah Hamdulillah. Who is he?

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

Who is Allah?

00:09:48--> 00:09:52

Men who Allah. If anyone asks you, What do you say?

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

I can't hear somebody say,

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

okay, so you're gonna start

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

Same His names, right? The Creator, right? The the sustainer, the Most Merciful, the benevolence the and you go all the way in the names. Does that move you?

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

Let me just I want you to hear this. When I say Allah, does the name move you.

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

Really, you start with robots.

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

You start thinking, I change I sit differently.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

I put my hijab different, or Allah

00:10:36--> 00:11:21

it's all questions I'm throwing it to you because I need you to start rethinking. Literally we need to rethink we as Muslims, really Who are we and what's our relationship with Allah? And if we don't know him, we have no relationship with them. So you all know the end of Surah Baqarah right. At least you've all heard about m&r Rasool Allah this is also what we believe in the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah, the cow, Amana rasuluh, that there are sooner a Santosa believed in one be mountain zoo, they Hema Robin, way more amino Roswaal is AutoSum believed in what has been sent to him from his Lord and all the believers, the believers is you and me. Coulomb each one, I'm

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

translating the verse Kulon

00:11:24--> 00:11:49

each one of us not them me noon, if you say I am a believer, then yes, we are dominant Vinda he believed in Allah. While Mala angels when Kitabi one Nebby right, and then you know the rest of the verse, why I'm sharing this verse with you. There is only two verses in the Quran that was revealed not on this earth.

00:11:51--> 00:11:52

Not on this earth.

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

Does anyone know?

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

Anybody? Yes.

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

I can't hear you.

00:12:04--> 00:12:13

So when Roswaal is AutoSum, once went in his night journey, right now journey and then ascent to the heavens, what was revealed

00:12:14--> 00:12:36

at the seventh heaven, the seventh heaven. So we have seven, the seven is where everything stops, everything comes from Earth goes up, stops there. And everything comes from the from Allah subhanaw taala stopped, it's like a station, the station then like a filter goes up and goes down. So at that level, what was revealed?

00:12:38--> 00:12:51

What I just recited to you, only verse in the Quran, the two last ayat of surah Al Baqarah, the last two verses of the slaughter Bukhara was revealed from Allah dear, why?

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

I always wonder why. I mean, there's so many other verses in the Quran next week, I'm going to share with you about Allah but why this one?

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

And the virtues of this two verses. There is about 10 Hadith about the virtues of these two verses of the Quran. Do you know that not Surah Fatiha, the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:13:15--> 00:13:27

And also on Esau to some one of the one of the Hadith. He said, Whosoever read these two, every night before he or she sleeps Kapha it's enough. suffice.

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

What's catheter? When you say I have enough? I'm done? What does that mean? I don't need anything else. You probably have nothing, but you have everything you need. Or maybe you don't have anything. And Allah doesn't make you feel you need. That's one of the virtues of it. Why what is so special about it, you need to be that go back and read it. Because that's what I am you need to keep reminding myself that this is what what makes me a Muslim.

00:13:58--> 00:14:31

What makes me different than everybody else outside is not only the way I look, the way I look or the way I pray is a result of what I believe in. So who is Allah? How do I know he exists? This is a very common question. Have you ever had this someone asked me this question? You go to new Muslims that's very common question. How do you know Allah exist? Who can answer me don't be scared. Okay, you want to come in the front door in the back there's a lot of space in the front.

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

How do you know Allah exist

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

yeah

00:14:49--> 00:14:58

so you look you look at the creation, his creation around me and in that's that's for sure. yelloweye adjustment

00:15:11--> 00:15:33

Okay so the Quran and we're going to come to one of the classes will be about the whole Quran all about the Quran, we're going to go through these Armineh Rosu what we believe in as, as Muslims, we're going to go through it one by one, we need to reassess it. I call it resuscitate our deen and resuscitate our knowledge. Even if they are basics, I need to keep reminding myself learn,

00:15:35--> 00:16:02

be grounded in the knowledge. And then I can teach. I'm not talking about here I'm teaching inside the house and outside the house, each individual, each human being Allah created, they know there is a Creator, a superpower as something very few. But the majority if you ask them, what do they tell you? Mother Nature.

00:16:04--> 00:16:54

Something there is there. Its superpower and then if they are religious, they will call him according to what they believe in. What did Allah teaches you and me are taught me and you in the Quran. Each one of us born born when the baby comes out with this engraved in us. Fifth Parata Allahu Latif operon dasa Alia let me add the health pillar. Allah said this to Roswaal risotto sir, sorta room. The Roman he said fell chemo Jacqueline dini. Hanifa set forth your face straight for this Deen Hanifa meaning you worship only one. And then he's telling him fifth Ratan footrot Allah this is how all we are created lots of data the Health Canada this is not going to change. We all

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

know there is something more than you and me.

00:16:58--> 00:17:19

And our Roswaal is auto SAMSA dot khulumani Rude EULA to other federal, every newborn. Is she or he created or born with the fitrah with the natural instinct, natural instinct. You know, how do you know you have a natural instinct? Can anybody tell me even the non believer

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

when you when you're scared, what do you say? Oh my god.

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

What is that?

00:17:28--> 00:18:15

Right? Oh my gosh. And then it depends what they believe in. Oh, Jesus. So you know that is something more than you and me. It just doesn't even my mind doesn't accept it. It's you and we will insert the whole mancala customer molecule or the Quran Allah rasool Allah Sandra Suarez AutoSum if you tell them, ask them who created the heaven and earth, they will answer you saying Allah and who's answering non believers. We all know that. And then when the newborn is born, then his parents change him. That's what the hadith of Rasul Allah is sought, or Salam said, for our about our parents, you have we then they make him Jews, you know, Serrana they make him Christian or you make

00:18:15--> 00:18:32

dishonor they make him Medusa, basically worship the fire, but in general, all of us, all of us, and I will give you one example. This is actually one of the best thing I was taught one of the best things I was taught to

00:18:33--> 00:18:48

strengthen your connection with Allah subhanaw taala I was taught the following. When you feel you're weak and distant from Allah, and you live with hunger in a city close to the ocean, go to the ocean and think of yourself in the middle of the ocean. And oh, I'm

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

not in a boat. They dropped you and you're hanging to only a piece of wood

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

what you're going to say

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

at that moment

00:19:02--> 00:19:29

What are you going to say? All of us, all of us see I can y'all are saying it. We're gonna say you're not yella and I was reading a book preparing for this and he gave another example actually the author he said remember that plane when they were in that plane and there was so much turbulences everybody and that they look like someone had a like videotape everybody was saying your hola because you're up there.

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

What does that teaches me? It seems to me it's natural.

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

What happens then?

00:19:38--> 00:19:42

If it is in me and it is natural what happens? What changed?

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

Think with me what changed? It's there in me when I am in need your Allah when I'm sick yo Allah when I when my car doesn't work and the phone is dead your Allah when when there is no needs to rely on. Immediately. We all go y'all

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

LAHIA Allah even the US wala he, you know when they want to tell you something they want to really make the point. But Wallah, he was like okay, how can you at least there is a lie? That's good.

00:20:11--> 00:20:19

What does that tell you? It's in B and Hamdulillah. Why is weaker and weaker and weaker and even I'm doubting

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

why

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

you're too quiet.

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

What say that again?

00:20:30--> 00:20:38

So environmental condition blaming the others. That's not a good start. You always blame yourself first.

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

Because there is people who are exposed to the same environmental changes, and they are solid like a rock. So what is the issue?

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

It's not my priority.

00:20:54--> 00:21:47

I am connected with him. But connected here. But not even deep here. Here, I have no idea. It depends. What is my day where I am in my life? It's Ramadan, I'm fasting. I am going for vacation. We go up and down. Am I correct? Right? If I am here, I'm different. If I go back home, I'm different. If I'm in maqam different, if I'm in vacation in Hawaii, I'm different. So it's not people, people as an influence of number one is me. Me, so two things, we need to start working on all of us. And if you have it and Hamdulillah that could find it the crutch and value of money. Remind them reminder benefits the believers, if you already are very comfortable Alhamdulillah. But

00:21:47--> 00:22:05

most of us are not there or not there constantly. So Allah subhanaw taala asked this question. There's so many questions in the Quran with no answer. One of them is actually sort of both. And Allah says, I'm Holly Coleman, ready chain and more Holly,

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

what are they created from something different? Or maybe they created?

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

Question Mark, what is the answer?

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

What is the answer?

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

You're too quiet. I don't know why?

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

Because the answer is, of course, we didn't create ourselves. Right? If you go back and back and back and back and I'll give you at the end a couple of stories which sha Allah will wake you up and it will make you think even more but everything if you go back and back and back and back has an origin

00:22:43--> 00:22:54

so an hour Avia bedwin bedwin. But when usually is like people who don't have a lot of education, but they have natural instinct, and they asked him How do you know Allah has there?

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

How do you know Allah exist?

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

You know what he said?

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

It's beautiful. He said I borrow to do Albireo

00:23:06--> 00:23:16

Well, Ethel, we are doing Luallen Mercier sama on that to abroad will auto loan that will flood Allah to do local allinial hobby.

00:23:18--> 00:24:01

Let me translate this is a bad one has no education. But when it's sometimes even they don't know how to read and write but they have very sharp because they spend a lot of time alone and outside so they reflect on the creation so they asked him How do you know Allah exist? You know it's like you're a Bedouin you didn't read much you don't know much. Simple. See what he said? He said Alba or to do look a little better. When you see a dunk please forgive me. This indicate or shows that there was a camo. While SRO you had to learn mercy when I walk and I see footsteps or footprints. That means what the somebody was walking.

00:24:03--> 00:24:22

Simple. Then he said now, Sama, andato Abraj. Sky Full of Stars. We're not alone that to a flower and Earth full of path for us. A lotta delusional allinial hobby. Isn't that enough to tell me that is all knowing almighty.

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

What is that teaches you and me? How do I become this? This Bedouin?

00:24:31--> 00:24:35

What is what does he have? An I don't

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

he doesn't have a cell phone and spend all his time distracted. He spent his time focusing, focusing, reflecting seeing an answered simple question, simple answer. Why do I need to resuscitate my relationship with Allah? Because everything else he wants me to do? Unless I

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

No Who is he? It's very difficult. And let's be all honest. Whether it's how I get dressed whether other Salah weather don't do this and don't do that and don't fit in, and I don't mind I'm different unless I know who is he. So who is he? Is he Do you know? What's the name Allah mean?

00:25:22--> 00:25:29

Well, like I'm asking you basic questions, right? Yeah, I knew we learn this when we were five years of age.

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

What is the name Allah name? Don't tell me how the caldera that says this names. Other names. What is the name? Hola, mi.

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

l ILA. What does that mean?

00:25:43--> 00:25:55

What is the EULA mean? The origin is either you're right. Allah origin is either a flam, ha, and then you put any flam on it, it becomes Allah, what does it mean?

00:25:56--> 00:26:06

And in my abode, the one that we are the only one that should be worshipped, or I had worthy of worship,

00:26:07--> 00:26:17

worthy of worship. You know, when you love someone, and you they people who tell you why do you love him or her? What do you say? They deserve it?

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

You don't know what they did to me. You know how you don't know how they make me feel? So of course, I love them. How can I not?

00:26:27--> 00:26:48

Allah is in my mood is the only one worthy of me giving him and please pay attention to this, giving him my time. My feelings, my love, my energy, my fear, my attachment, my longing, the only one worthy

00:26:49--> 00:26:53

out everybody else, all of us or

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

there's a beautiful now just came to my mom poem

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

says

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

the meaning of Kona Arpita. Be smart.

00:27:07--> 00:27:14

And look around you. Everyone around you is nothing. And we're created from nothing.

00:27:16--> 00:27:37

We're cool. We're cool. I don't remember the Arabic one. But it's beautiful is if you look around us, lamb liquid NFC Valhalla and alpha Roswaal is AutoSum says, I can't bring any good to myself or any harm. And I cannot push any harm from you, or I cannot bring any good. You're going to say yes, you can. I said when Allah wills

00:27:38--> 00:27:56

because I can do the same thing for three people. One works and the two doesn't why I'm the same person. And it's the same thing. So the Imam Abu Hanifa. And this is I want you to remember in case someone asked you, who was famous for debates, you know that he debated people with

00:27:57--> 00:28:13

wrong beliefs. And he debated people who don't believe period. So this is at the time of lab bassia with Jafar, Masada, those who doesn't believe they came to him and he said, get us someone this way, this is how they say it. If you read this story, get us someone who can convince us that there is a Creator.

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

There is Allah.

00:28:17--> 00:28:41

And he said, I know only one person is Abu Hanifa. So he called himself by says, Okay, let's make a time or make an appointment. And that's going to be this time. And they lived in Baghdad. So he said on the bank of the river, we will meet at this time. So everybody was there. All those who don't believe, and the Khalifa. And Abu Hanifa didn't show up.

00:28:42--> 00:28:56

He was not there. They waited. He didn't show up. And the the Khalifa starts to become very worried. I was like what happened to him? So what did they start saying? See, he doesn't have a reason. That's why they show up.

00:28:57--> 00:29:06

That's not Abu Hanifa. That's you and me. So Abu Hanifa finally came in late, late, just before malherbe.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

And they said why you're late.

00:29:10--> 00:29:23

Now remember, he's debating people who don't believe in Allah. They think that this all created from nothing. And there is no creator. And he's trying to debate them. No words. So he said, Well,

00:29:24--> 00:29:26

I was on the other side of the river.

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

And I was waiting for a boat and there was no word.

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

And then suddenly,

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

wood, a piece of wood came from the sky

00:29:39--> 00:29:42

and met another piece of wood in the river

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

and then suddenly came in hammer and came in nails and they start working together. And then they made a boat and then suddenly out of nowhere came into paint and the paint painted

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

And then finally the boat is ready and I came to

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

they looked at him and says, Are you making fun of us?

00:30:08--> 00:30:09

Is that real?

00:30:10--> 00:30:17

Do you think we are crazy? Come from the sky, piece of wood and woods in the river.

00:30:18--> 00:30:31

And he said you didn't believe a boat can be made from nothing by itself. And you don't believe that all this around you was made of nothing.

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

Then for sure there is a creative

00:30:37--> 00:30:56

done if we all each one of us, look around us, and I highly recommend those of you who love animals. If you pay attention to animals, no way one line at the right level, no way. You cannot believe

00:30:57--> 00:31:12

there is no way. And I have cats and I learned a lot from cats and even if you read some of the scollard Luckily, mommy Junaid, he said, I learned how to be so observant of my actions by watching a cat

00:31:13--> 00:32:00

watching from a hole looking at a hole in the wall waiting for the mice. It's called Morava. And he said I learned from the animal. So if you want to resuscitate your email, resuscitate your basic belief to spend 510 minutes without a phone, when you go hiking, when you go walking, when you go on the beach, when you go in any place or if you're in the plane and the window and you see the creation of Allah just five minutes look at the like, I just fly flew two days ago. And Subhan Allah was clear sky but full of clouds. So the plane above the cloud. And if you look at the cloud, like Chapin on law,

00:32:01--> 00:32:24

literally Allah describe them like mountains, you describe them, you're gonna zoom in a semi Human Geography I mean borrowed, and he descended down from clouds like mountains, and I was looking mountains, different weights, some small, some big, some beautiful, some so smooth, some are not. And literally I was like, Yo Allah, who are you?

00:32:25--> 00:32:28

This cannot be done by me or you.

00:32:29--> 00:32:39

If you each one of us spend two minutes, two minutes, a day, two minutes a day, reflecting on something around you.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

And then see how is your relationship with Allah?

00:32:43--> 00:33:20

What is your relationship of Allah? And the doubt who is not there? Those who are in doubt, the main reason is those who are non Muslims alone are fairly common phenomenon. They don't know. And part of it is my fault and yours. Please forgive me. Because we don't talk about it. We don't invite people to it. People I mean, the neighbor, the friend, the colleague, friend of your children, if you spent two minutes, two minutes, daily, one of the things beautiful, he uses a lot of flowers.

00:33:21--> 00:34:00

And again, this is a beauty of California. And then I always look at it. And I remember a versus waffle. And in a lot of fun, it could have been one hour, a lot split. Split. I'll have one hour, the hub is like the seed and the fruits. So sprouts came out of it. A month ago if you had flowers, what did you see? Or if you buy a flower from the from the shop, what do you see? You see it small before it's in water, right? Three, four days, two days what happens? This small becomes a flower. How is that?

00:34:01--> 00:34:45

How does the flower know to open up? How does the flower knows to direct itself to the sun? If you put it if you put your vase toward the sun, everything turned to the Sun if you have plants in the house, that's what they tell you. If the plan gets a little bit tilted, turn it How does that who who taught the plant this Allah you're off will be healthy. That's how they teach you Allah you will know Him through His creation to our fight the heartache be healthy. He introduced himself to you and me and I'm not talking about the Quran yet. This is next week and not His names. This is next week, but he introduced himself to you and me through the creation, but we are too busy. Too busy.

00:34:45--> 00:34:56

We don't pay attention to this. So daily, two minutes, three minutes. And I'm not gonna say read the Quran and reflect we'll come to this later, but just look around you sunset.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Sunset, the most

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

beautiful scene you see here is the sunset wherever you drive right Subhanallah where does the sun go?

00:35:09--> 00:35:18

Don't tell me that turns will Earth Turn this is your this is physics I know that in reality where does it go? When I don't see it

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

goes where

00:35:21--> 00:35:29

and when you see it like in the last few minutes it goes so quickly that and then it disappeared. Where does it go?

00:35:30--> 00:35:34

Allah knows of course but what did he taught us? What does it go

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

did you think of that?

00:35:39--> 00:36:09

was shown strategically remonster Quran Allah donde cada Cadena Ruelas easy rally and the sun walk temporary actually is not walk Treasury go run. And now the scholars tells you Yes, the sun are on Treasury, the Mr. Carmilla are on to appointed place, then the role as he is in it. This is the appointments of Allah Aziz the might, alleging the unknowing isn't the Quran surah trc.

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

The first thing I want to share with you today this is what I wanted lambda i think i think Allah made it happen I made a lot of dua, that Allah subhanaw taala open your hearts to think differently.

00:36:23--> 00:36:44

And don't take things for granted as my mom taught me my grandmother, and then goes on without deep thinking and reflection. Men entail Allah sometimes I asked this question and I'm not doubting I just say Allah show me. Show me. Your Majesty. He's not gonna show me because who asked to see Allah

00:36:46--> 00:37:03

for us to see Allah, Allah be Ernie own glory day, right? You're alive. Let me see you. So you know Musa, Caitlyn terani You're not gonna see me? Well, I can only really generally look at the mountain in Eastern Oregon McKenna for solfatara I

00:37:04--> 00:37:15

look at the wanton weight, and then you will see for Lamotrigine, Laura boohoo lil Jabari. Jana who Dhaka Allah within a minute made the mountain crush.

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

Hora mo sauce icon and Musa right away, fainted.

00:37:22--> 00:37:29

If Allah will show us who is he will not be able to survive. And that's out of his Rahama.

00:37:30--> 00:38:05

So let's think again about Allah subhanaw taala take your time when you read the Quran one name, we'll talk about it. Next week more about Allah, how he described himself in the Quran, how he introduced himself to you and to me, I was asked to finish early today because we need to empty this room at 730. Otherwise, they will not give us the room. No, I'm just kidding. But they said Please, they said Please, they didn't say. So. Any questions? I'm going to end up here if there is any question go ahead. I think I shared with you almost everything I wanted

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

to share. Oh one question to the Mount Abu Hanifa Yeah, Allah how he answered. He said

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

they asked him so Allah was there before everything else?

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

And he said yes. And he said, How's that?

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

Look at the answer. He said what is before for?

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

Assam? Yep. Then he said what is before three?

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

And he said what is before two? And this? And he said what is before one? Nothing.

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

And he said

00:38:49--> 00:38:57

numbers? And number one there is nothing before and the one who's the only one? Do you want something before?

00:38:59--> 00:39:04

And then they asked him and says in which direction your Lord goes look at the questions.

00:39:06--> 00:39:27

And what do you think he answered your Allah Ya Allah? And he said, he always answer with examples that makes people don't even answer because it's obvious. He said, Okay, go and bring me a light like a lantern. And they brought him a lantern and he said turn it on. And he said which direction the lantern is going,

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

the light of the land in which direction is going

00:39:32--> 00:39:36

everywhere. And he said Allah Who knows some Allah to Allah.

00:39:37--> 00:39:40

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth goes everywhere.

00:39:42--> 00:39:58

This is what we all need. Again, we need to resuscitate or even revisit, very think, reread, reread, read about him daily. Subhanallah if you all and I again, I'm not meaning you but I'm saying to myself, number one

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

How much time I spend in everything else in life legitimate things right. And I'm not going to say phone or social media, Instagram, all this but everything else, but how much I spend with Allah not by salah the the automatic thing we do just to focus on him just to know Him. So to give my my Eman a boost, because the more I think of Allah, the more I am stronger. And one last thing and I will end up here.

00:40:33--> 00:40:56

One of the things also I was taught, and I found it always helped me especially in Salah, I was taught, taught, when you don't know why specifically and record but definitely at record works more in the inland core, as you are in record. Think a second Allah has looking at you. Just a second, a fraction of a second. And then what will happen?

00:40:57--> 00:41:31

You will freeze. Try it, all of you. When you go for Subhanallah Biella they don't do it very quickly. And just think for a second Allah has looking at you your freeze, because we know him. He's inside us. But afternoon, we are heedless. We're too busy. We're distracted. Everything else is more important. I trace by time we go to bed, we didn't even know what we did. Let's take a pause to five minutes a day. And just let's go back and learn about him. Subhana Is he worthy?

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

Is he worthy of my five minutes?

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Yes or no?

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

Five minutes.

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

Walmart federal law

00:41:43--> 00:41:59

and they have not given Allah His Darius. Three times Allah said from the Quran Malcador law Kandra they never give Allah his due. Right? They didn't know who is he Subhana Allah maarif Nabek your Allah may Allah make us know him. And may Allah make us know.

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

us know his bounty is not by taking them away. And may Allah subhanaw taala make us of the grateful that he makes us at least sit here and alone this fall in your hand. And don't despair from the rock. No, hello. I always say this, and I end up with this. Don't despair, even if this was too too much. Where am I? On Wait, don't the fact he brought you here today? The fact he made me think of this subject. The fact he made it happen and made me speak. He wants me to know. And he wants you to know Subhana panacur Lomo. Behind the shadow Elijah Hyland, a stockbroker to bootleg salam ala Sayidina. Muhammad Ali. He was habitus demon kathira. Any questions or comments? Yes, please.

00:42:45--> 00:42:48

Jasmine, it's okay. Of course.

00:42:53--> 00:43:01

Yes, No, Allah, anything happens to us. Allah make it happen. So the question is, did he faint? or Allah made him faint?

00:43:02--> 00:43:03

Yeah.

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

Bring up the whole world with so many

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

mistakes.

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

Oh, did you get that?

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

There's so many countries, and there is so many nations, but there's only one son

00:43:23--> 00:43:31

as you and not so and one son, and one moon. But there's so many other stories. That's called reflection.

00:43:32--> 00:43:41

That's called reflection every time we learn something from Jasmine right? Mashallah. Teulada. Anyone else? Yes, please.

00:43:45--> 00:44:08

Yeah, there is a Dobby. Yes. And humbler? There's a beautiful book, called The End Nicola. Because you are Allah. It's actually a PDF. You can download it. And it went almost viral on the book. Leanna Kola, and I'm glad you said this, because I was actually reading it yesterday again. And the author dedicated the book to his mother.

00:44:09--> 00:44:29

But he was saying why to his he didn't say to my mother first. He said to the one when I was eight years of age, asked me. Did you pray? How so late? And he's saying this in the book. In the end, he said, Well, tonight I'm one Academy. I said yes. And I was alive.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

He didn't. She said,

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

If you prayed,

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

or you didn't, he's saying.

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

He was telling him whether you prayed or he didn't play, he saw you. She didn't tell you. She knew he didn't. Subhanallah but she didn't want to tell him you're a liar. We'll go and pray. And then he said it's in the book if you read the first page, then he said I went and I prayed.

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

And from that time, I am praying to your mom. That's what he took meaning this book is to my mother, Nicola, he chose couple of the names of Allah. But the way he wrote it beautiful, literally very nice. It's very easy read. It's like this size. That's too big. Any other question?

00:45:22--> 00:45:25

No, absolutely. It's

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

short in my other life and short and

00:45:30--> 00:45:38

I'd love to, actually next week on taking some quotes from him and be in the law. Yes, yes.

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

Can't you?

00:45:42--> 00:45:52

Luck alila Fifi, if I'm Alia Fifi. Yeah, if I'm remembering what it's a blue book, blue, the cupboard is blue. Kansa retinol Liana cola.

00:45:53--> 00:45:55

Any other questions?

00:45:56--> 00:45:59

This is weird. Really? Yes.

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

I have a fan in me.

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

That's okay.

00:46:11--> 00:46:18

Yes, Allah has no gender, but we refer to him as he in translation. Uh huh.

00:46:20--> 00:46:24

Because anything that is unknown is usually referred to as he.

00:46:27--> 00:46:42

Now, now, now we get into the Arcadia college, because but that's okay. Because that's a common question. And it's a common point. Because when you say in the Arabic language now you have to know this is Arabic.

00:46:43--> 00:47:36

And local Arabi. When you use the feminine, it means woman. But if you use the masculine, he means man. could mean a woman could mean that none. That's in the Arabic language. Okay, if you restore a tool and those of you who read Arabic, you will know about Allah He introduced himself to us, it's all whoo hoo, hoo hoo. But it's he has no gender Subhana anything that we human being or Allah is not in the creation in the form. So when I say Allah is Semia, Allah hears while I hear to Yes, but it's not the same. It's not the same in one one verse This probably going to end in sha Allah. Explain Things it's in Surah two Shura, Lisa chemically, he she

00:47:37--> 00:47:58

will who was Sunil Basia? Nothing look at the translation if you know how to be you know very clearly because the words the the tools Allah who's laser Nephi can Miss Li che to tools for parables in the Arabic language in the English you translate? Nothing like the like of him?

00:47:59--> 00:48:06

Nothing like the like of him. Nothing like on law. So you say I, I have a lot of mercy.

00:48:08--> 00:48:25

Nothing like Allah. Or I am so strong. Nothing like Allah. I know everything. Nothing like a law lady subcommittee. He she was semi Aubusson let's cannot can we have somebody else Jasmine just for a second in case is that Okay?

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

Anyone else?

00:48:30--> 00:48:32

I can hear you I'm sorry.

00:48:36--> 00:49:15

Allah, and then you say for example, Allahu Allah either. Because what they say the name of Allah is is more Allen it is the name of Allah. Like your name is Surah for example, and then he's which sorrow you say surah Muhammad Ali, and you put your father name. When you say Allah, it is his name. And then you say, Well, yeah, he'll smile. hasna to Allah is the beautiful names. So you identified him Subhana and then you say Allah send me Allah hearing. Allah sees Allah capable Allah is generous, but you always say Allah first. Is that clip 100

00:49:17--> 00:49:28

Masha Allah Allah says any question from upstairs? I don't want to deprive you hamdulillah anyone else? Yeah, Leah Jasmine the last one so we can finish Hamdulillah we are on time Yes.

00:49:34--> 00:49:36

Does Allah Georgia animal

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

does Allah Georgia animal that's a good question.

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

Does Allah Georgia animal?

00:49:51--> 00:49:54

No. Okay, let's see Bismillah who say yes.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

I'm coming to the door No. Who says yes, Allah Who

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

judge the animals,

00:50:02--> 00:50:04

Allah will judge them fine. Who says no?

00:50:05--> 00:50:07

Like the majority, I don't know.

00:50:09--> 00:50:21

This is a question of fact that will answer your point. Who is which one of us, Allah will not take them accountable. Now you will learn.

00:50:22--> 00:50:29

This is how you learn by the opposite which one of us which human being Allah, who will not take them accountable?

00:50:32--> 00:51:07

The people who are insane, they don't have, they're not in the state of mind. Why? Because they cannot differentiate between the good and the bad, and the harmful and the beneficial and what Allah said, or he wants me and he doesn't. So, will Allah take the animals accountable? However, that day, there is no injustice in case you know, that hadith that even the two sheeps will stand in front of Allah. And one sheep will say, I want my right to Allah from her.

00:51:09--> 00:51:15

She, she took my right, she did an injustice to sheeps.

00:51:16--> 00:51:17

Yeah, Wally,

00:51:18--> 00:51:30

all of us. So Allah who will take us accountable because we have minded wisdom and ability to choose. And that's why angels have no problem.

00:51:31--> 00:51:50

I wish I was angel or animal dung. But Allah did not. He wanted me to Corona bunny Adam, he elevated our status he honored us I can do that your brand is from Allah Who Hirens panic alarm will be handed a shadow on

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

a stockbroker to boudic so on so you know, Hamid, what are you he was happy to see him and Kathira barkcloth equal May Allah reward you.

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

So if we can please move
