mashallah Tabata, Kamala?

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

I asked one of my dear sisters his take picture

00:01:47 --> 00:02:31

Smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was Safi woman who Allah La Malim Nama and fauna on foreigner Bhima alum tena indica Simeon would you dua la manera, who will be coming and Milan for our Colby Leia Xiao Neff, Sinhala, touchbar Wadhwani, la you SMA or Bonilla to the Kulu winner, bad data now Hublin AMOLED on Kurama Inaka until your hub for be strictly Sodre us Sully Omri Watlow. Lock the terminally sunny of coho poli, before I start, how many of you have been to a place visiting a place? Not necessarily a masjid and you see things the person who invited you or the person who lives have never seen it before? And you say Wow, your city for example, or your

00:02:31 --> 00:02:36

home has this and you say you reedy How many of you show me hands?

00:02:38 --> 00:02:55

I'm sure it is more than that. Can everyone hear me? Well? That's what I thought. Okay. So let me just hold this one. So when I entered here, I visited this place before it was finished. It was before COVID Actually, I the program in the old masjid. And I was impressed because it's big.

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

And then they were telling me about the vision.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:12

So Allah subhanaw taala opted after four years, I come in here, and I can tell you the hospitality I have seen. It's 24 hours since I landed here. What really impressed me

00:03:13 --> 00:03:17

is the amount of people who attend this Masjid. Yes. Does that collide?

00:03:19 --> 00:03:34

Yes. How? Much better? Right? Yes. Like this morning for her. I have not seen that many people on a Friday night and I travel all over the country. I joke with my family I live on the sky more than I live on earth.

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

Why I'm saying this

00:03:39 --> 00:03:44

because the Isha khardungla is even for the Inca for tominaga Vida shaheed.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:50

If each one of you in this Masjid today, as I'm seeing you all

00:03:52 --> 00:03:59

unless you feel what I said, and you're going to be grateful to Allah Who will take it away.

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

And we have seen so many examples of that. And being grateful, is not just saying Al Hamdulillah. It's beautiful to say Hamdulillah. But the 100 law has to come from here, before it comes from here.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:18

And unless I feel it, and I don't take it for granted.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

And I short Allah, I'm grateful.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:32

I use it well. I take care of it better than I take care of my home. I don't complain. I'm so grateful to everyone who works here.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:47

Allah who will give you more my friends of course in California texted me last night for reasons some of you may know. And they said what did you see? And I'm going to share it with you because most of you don't feel it because you are in it.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

I said I saw the following.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:52

I saw vision.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

I saw focus.

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

I saw community I didn't see msgid I saw Aquamarine.

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

Unity, I saw people who works together, to serve Allah not to serve themselves. You don't see this a lot and a lot of massages. And some of you, you know this very well.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

Be grateful.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:26

Be grateful. Don't complain, take care of it, take care of it very well. And the most important word respected.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:56

This is not my home or yours. This is his house. When I put my feet from this door, or that door or that door, I need to remind myself, it's his house. And he honored me. I didn't honor him, I don't deserve. But he honored me to enter to stay to enjoy. And the chef May Allah reward them just told me that is a tea afterwards. I said, Yeah, Chef, you're spoiling your community.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:04

And may Allah reward everybody. So I wanted to start with this and this is not planned. This is observation.

00:06:06 --> 00:06:11

You have no right to complain. Otherwise, I'll take you to where I go usually.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:16

Service Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:40

I didn't choose the subject. I had no idea till two days ago. But it's definitely a subject we need. And some of you may attended Shia Imam Zaid this this afternoon. And I really loved every word he said. And if some of you didn't feel it, or you think he's talking somewhere else, then you're not living in the United States.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:52

15 years ago, when I used to come from Jamaica, and visit I spent 20 years in St. Louis. So the sisters used to come to me for counseling, what was the problem? 15 years ago.

00:06:54 --> 00:07:02

My son is marrying a woman, she's going to be a Muslim. But now she is not a Muslim. It used to be a disaster.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

Few years later,

00:07:05 --> 00:07:09

this is not an issue anymore. When I say that, she said she is going to become a Muslim.

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

Now my daughter is not

00:07:13 --> 00:07:16

my daughter is going to marry a man he's going to be a Muslim.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:21

Few years later, it doesn't matter anymore.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:45

Just recently, I was in a wedding, and I saw a lady I haven't seen for a while. And I was asking her about her children says that Hamdulillah this is true story. My son married a Muslim. It's only my daughter left, please make a DUA and I was about to make this as I want to only two things. I said what is it says she marries a Muslim.

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

And a man

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

this is true story.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:07

And I was not surprised. We are going life is going to so quickly so much changes. That's why the topic is extremely important. We need to stay strong as a community.

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

We need to tackle the issues

00:08:10 --> 00:08:13

don't brush the issues it's there.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:29

Some of you may not know it, I know it on daily basis from the email I get and from the counseling and I'm sure chef Yasser sees even more than I do. It's there. The question, what do I do with it? How can I protect this?

00:08:30 --> 00:08:33

How can I protect me? And you?

00:08:34 --> 00:08:55

Allah subhanaw taala said the following, by the way, the concept of steadfastness is in the Quran, is not something we invent now, because we live in 2023 and we live in the West. It's in that time. It was an order given to a Rasul Allah, His salatu Sinha. anyone in this room knows that the order

00:08:56 --> 00:09:02

was given an order to Ross while he sought to sell and then it was given order to all of us since order.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:06

It's in solitude.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:16

Chapter 11 At the end, I think it's the worst 112 Allah said Torah So Ali Salatu was Sinha first the theme come out on mute

00:09:17 --> 00:09:33

woman taba Monica, wala Tato in a hurry Mata Amma Luna Basa stay steadfast. Alright, this word not in on a piece of paper, not in your phones in your heart.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:45

I need it in every minute. First time stay steadfast. Don't go right. Don't go left. Woman tab amok and those with you.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:54

Well, I thought the whole don't overdo things. Don't go overboard. He sees everything we do.

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

And another verse and assure of a sticky moolah who was stuck for Euro

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

Mr. Karim Lee he was tough for you to stay steadfast to Allah. What's the steadfast word to somebody says, Stay as you are. What does that mean?

00:10:12 --> 00:10:21

I'm going to come to the basic questions I just want you to think don't answer me and this for everybody. What does it mean to be a Muslim this day and age?

00:10:24 --> 00:10:37

That's number one question we all have to answer. What is a Muslim mean? A shadow Allah ADA in Allah, wa shadow under Muhammad Rasulullah. And you do the rest that you all know the four other things. What does it mean?

00:10:39 --> 00:10:45

I wear my hijab. I come to the masjid. I pray, I go to Islamic school.

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

Is that it? So what is the problem?

00:10:49 --> 00:10:55

What's the problem? You know, what's the problem? We move right and left.

00:10:57 --> 00:11:22

I'll give you an example of what somebody who is a steadfast doesn't change. See h a n g. And I see the change on daily basis or Lila, the Allah who when I went to study, I went to study for nine years. And I came back to my office. Some of the patients I was seeing I delivered them in the early 2000. You know what I said to my friends?

00:11:23 --> 00:11:33

Am I like the people of the cave. I went for 300 years and came back in a different time. From what I am seeing and hearing

00:11:35 --> 00:11:45

steadfast, you need to be like a mountain. That's how they tell you. And what's the theme. The person who stay on the path, like a mountain.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:52

You don't live in a city where you see mountains but if you come and visit me you will see the mountains on the right and the left

00:11:53 --> 00:12:16

the mountain they say the following the mountain doesn't move or change when it is very cold. Or it is very hot. On there is a severe wind from the top or there is a flood from below that mountain stay as a mountain. Are you following what I'm saying? Are we mountains?

00:12:17 --> 00:12:19

How many say we are

00:12:21 --> 00:12:24

I love this honest community.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:30

Yes. And is it easy to stay as a mountain?

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

Absolutely not.

00:12:34 --> 00:13:11

Because we are human Allah said this more than one time in the Quran. afara ETOM Anita, the ADA who Hawa Do you see the person who took his own whims and desires as it's God? I like it. It's okay. Allah is awful or Rahim, everyone else is doing it. Why not me? And then we start these days even questioning the basics. Have you ever thought at one time in your life someone is going to attack the Sunnah of Rasulullah saw to sell or brush the book of Imam Buhari?

00:13:12 --> 00:13:27

Let alone the hijab is not formed. This is a throne on us and all other things which Imam Zaid covered this afternoon. I need to stay straight and fixed on what I believe in front of all this wind.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:30

How do I do that?

00:13:32 --> 00:13:50

verse in the Quran, one of my dearest one to my heart. It's twice one is long and one is in short, in AlLadhina aliou are a boon Allah to muster calm. This is all of us, especially for spot those who said My Lord is Allah Who says this in this room.

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53

All of us

00:13:54 --> 00:14:00

so much TOCOM then they stay straight, steadfast on that path.

00:14:02 --> 00:14:03

What I'm going to get

00:14:04 --> 00:14:37

we live in a time how much you're going to pay me what I'm going to get out of it. What is the profit and Allah knows how we think 10 or zero Allah humanoid Mala Iike Allah to Hafele wala Zanu whatever Shiro will Jannetty Leti control twaddle angels will be sent down to those people not only said but acted and stayed, firm angels is going to come we don't see them. But they come and they're going to say to me and to you, each one of us.

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

Soul and there.

00:15:02 --> 00:15:18

I need this verse to be in front of me when I am going to work. And I'm speaking to the sisters, and I'll give example for the brothers when I'm going, and I'm wearing my hijab for the first day. How many of you have felt this?

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

Right? And you think everybody's looking at you.

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

And you think everybody will put you down.

00:15:26 --> 00:15:31

And just on the side note, honestly, no one cares about us. It's us.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:42

Feeling but in case that's the case, remember this. You want the angels to come to you and says, Don't worry, don't be sad. Don't worry about them.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:52

You need to live this way. And for the brothers, you have a business transaction and they are convincing you just to stick alone.

00:15:54 --> 00:16:09

You know? And then you start thinking, should I should I not do it? Should I go and ask Should I not remember, this is the camo, steadfast, stay straight, stay strong.

And I live with this

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

00:17:51 --> 00:17:59

And this is what the beauty of Rasul Allah saw to some one of it is he gave every Sahabi and advice according to what he needs.

I have bought five less than five minutes. How do I do it?

00:19:46 --> 00:19:52

How many of you saying say being a Muslim? In this day and age is easy.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

hamdulillah How many of you will say being a Muslim

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

The truth was them, I can do it.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:05

It's very challenging

00:20:06 --> 00:20:26

Alhamdulillah then we have hope in this community, because you're realistic, you know the issues, but you didn't give hope. You didn't give up on yourself. And you shouldn't. My neighbor were not in California when I was in St. Louis, three homes, one of my best friends, non Muslim,

00:20:27 --> 00:20:33

at one point looked at me and says, I would love to be a Muslim. If it was not for my family.

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

And I said, what you are loved about this?

00:20:39 --> 00:20:46

You will not believe it. She said you are the only religion still believe in him?

00:20:47 --> 00:20:59

Worship Him. I can't imagine what I see on Friday. Because the masjid where we used to very close what I see. And I said you better gonna see in Ramadan, what you see.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:13

So Hamdulillah we are not too bad. We are challenged. And we are not challenged by outside, believe me. We are challenged by ourselves. What should I do?

00:21:15 --> 00:21:17

When we had the COVID? What did we do?

00:21:19 --> 00:21:20

What did we do?

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

You did nothing?

00:21:25 --> 00:21:47

What did you do? You took precautions. Why did we wear mask? Why there were signs? I'm sure there was signs right distance, right? Don't interact, minimum social interact? What is this called? Prevention. Number one, to stay strong? Or remove? What makes you weak?

00:21:49 --> 00:21:54

And number one that makes me weak is what depends on your age. But in general,

00:21:55 --> 00:21:56

I want to hear it.

00:21:59 --> 00:22:01

Why don't you give your children phones

00:22:03 --> 00:22:04

because of social media.

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

Social media affect us all? All. And I spoke with our marketing director in Jana Institute. And I say just tell me teach me what is this marketing thing does? It's amazing what it does to you and me. It's all by suggestion.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

Or remove what makes you weak?

00:22:28 --> 00:22:36

Or remove? What does not make you strong? Who are your friends? Who do you spend time with?

00:22:37 --> 00:23:04

What's your relationship with him? What's your relationship with his book? What's your relationship with his creation? Why did you all come here? I was told there was two big huge tents outside. Am I correct? And this Masjid was full pack jam. Aren't you the same person? Did Allah inject something in you in Ramadan? And then Ramadan, and no more injections.

00:23:05 --> 00:23:12

And you were fasting, and you were working? And you're going to school and some of you had exams? What was the difference?

00:23:13 --> 00:23:44

And why now it's not the same. Because I was doing the extra as I was coming to the masjid and I'm fasting and I'm tired. And I had this company, this company, and I was reading his book. And I was doing Quran. What is the end? I was here on the night of 27th and it was Tuesday. It was not a weekend till 3am True or false on to the same person. That's it. That's what keeps you strong,

00:23:45 --> 00:24:09

constant interaction with Allah before with people. His book, his words, his actions, his house. Add Remove what makes you weak. And number one makes me a new week number one problem, which was highly sought or sad. I'm sad to say no more. Watch this.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:19

I'm sick. Gary Kelly Zanuck hold on to your tongue. Don't talk too much. And talk these days is not the only talk.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:25

There's a lot of talk these days, or without words being said.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

And most important, I will end up with this so we can give you some time for question and answer two things. Number one, don't. Don't give up on yourself. Even if you see yourself low, we all go up and down. No one is perfect. No one stay like this. No one including a Roswaal a saw to a sap Otherwise Allah would not have said to him, stay steadfast. So don't give up on yourself. But also don't be too lenient. It's okay. Don't keep saying it's okay to yourself. When you are too tight on yourself. Say it's okay. When you're nervous is too

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

Lose say come on. Da, da and DA and don't give up and make dua for each other.

00:25:55 --> 00:25:58

You have to stand up because I'm not going to be able to hear.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:04

And I'll repeat the question, especially for the sisters in the back.

00:26:08 --> 00:26:09

I'm sorry, I can't hear you.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:11

Does aka lie.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:58

And I'm so impressed with the amount of the youth that attend the Masjid. Hi, it's beautiful. Ceremony. Yes, I was saying that you know how you said you need to make dua to implement change. And say you're making continuous door and you're very How do I say this? Like you're very passionate about something and then time passed time passes. And it's not coming? It's not happening. You are not seeing the change. You're trying at least you feel like you're trying. But the change isn't coming your DWIs and working to the point where you feel like I don't know I feel like I'm silent it I don't want to even make the DUA like I'm just not actually a swan. So it was certainly everyone

00:26:58 --> 00:27:14

everyone heard the question Hamdulillah this is actually a hadith of Rasul Allah salatu salam in this about this concept, the meaning of, don't you say? I kept asking literally what you just said, I kept asking, and Allah did not respond.

00:27:15 --> 00:27:25

Now, and I don't mean you, but just because we all say it, by the way. The fact I say, Allah did not answer me, I'm negating a verse in the Quran.

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

True or false? You all heard this in Ramadan. It's in between the Ayat of Sudan. It's in between the verses of Syria. What did Allah said, was honorable coup. De only as the Jew block on that one, but the second one in the one I referred to earlier, with our Celica Annyeong body, what Fenley Akari OG Buddha with a die either Adhan for yesterday, booty will Yomi Nobita Allah whom you're sure don't, if they ask you about to me, I need you to memorize this.

00:27:59 --> 00:28:14

If my servant asked you about me there is no say, he said, I am mean, I hear what they are saying, I hear their dua, they need to respond to me, and believe in me, and they will be guided.

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

This is how shaitan comes to you.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:27

Responding to the DUA not necessarily come the way I want you to be I need water, this size, cold and then the water comes in front of me. Now.

00:28:28 --> 00:29:02

The DUA is which I'm sure many of you know this dua is respond in three ways. See that you will get exactly what you're asking. Or there is a harm that's going to be removed from you, or Allah will keep it and reward you in the Day of Judgment. Having said that, the question why you are changing, not changing, or not staying strong. What are you doing? Don't tell me this is public. You need to remove everybody. Myself. Number one, you need to remove disobedience from your homes.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:34

And unfortunately, these days, some of the obvious disobedience 10 years ago became normal. And then I say, while my dua is not being answered. I always say this to parents when they come in the children in big troubles. And I say I don't know your home. But I'm just asking a question. Is there haram inside the house? And I need to define haram. It's not only the usual, what do you watch on TV?

00:29:36 --> 00:29:37

What do you listen to?

00:29:38 --> 00:29:41

What do you talk about?

00:29:42 --> 00:29:59

There is a lot of haram in this. I'm not saying you but in general I need to analyze my day. And then I'm going to ask Allah if I didn't see it. Show me learn to talk to Allah. Beautiful and the DUA as we know but what about if I don't know that

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

dua talk to him. I know you're hearing me along with NACA tarama. Kenny, you see my place, what a smile Kalani, you'll hear what I am saying. What Allah was suddenly what Allah near it, and you know what's hidden? And what's obvious. Show me Allah, I know you hear my dua. Where am I doing? That I'm not changing one law he and I said to ally, you say this and see how he will tell you.

00:30:29 --> 00:30:36

But don't give up and never say Allah doesn't did not answer my dua he always does. May Allah make it easy?

00:30:38 --> 00:30:42

Any question? handler? No question. That's good news. No, I'm just kidding.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:46

Yes, please.

00:30:47 --> 00:30:49

I think we can hear you. Yes.

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

When it comes to down like metal

00:30:57 --> 00:30:59

what we have said, I like them, because

00:31:03 --> 00:31:04

we obviously know,

00:31:05 --> 00:31:06

people around

00:31:07 --> 00:31:13

us during that season, like, aren't we? Right? And we obviously don't want to go to two people.

00:31:15 --> 00:31:19

Right. So. So with regards to that, like,

00:31:21 --> 00:32:02

I think there's a decent amount of change required in adoption, right? If somebody still wants to do that, my question is like, how to get that adaption? How a person should get change? If we still do the same that you know, because a nearby folks one or two times they may go ahead and say, You know what, let's not do this, you know, I think there is a proper way of doing it. Let's go to let's read Quran. Let's see. In other words, whether it's there or not, I think at the same time, it's part of adoption. If somebody don't want to adopt, then what is are we gonna do? That's my first question. And the second question is, like,

00:32:03 --> 00:32:47

I think for sure, like, there are a lot of families here who came with their children. So, so I have blessed with four kids, three daughters, and a son. And then Hamdulillah. So a daily debate between me and my wife, it we, you know, we were too good in India, you know, what, we came here to this culture, and then trust me, Allah is listening to all of us. And that's what we discuss what we should do, you know, every day something comes up stating that, you know, in schools, something got introduced, you know, somebody says that there's a * education, they're gonna teach to the kids. I think, at home at maximum we can, we can in our culture, we can define it and all, then what is that

00:32:47 --> 00:33:26

we can do as a community that, you know, schools and all can also be properly monetized. Right. And I think everyone here, which is that, you know, all the kids should go to Islamic school in America. I think Allah subhanaw taala. You know, I think we all need to do a lot of prayer for that, so that all of our kids should go to Islamic school. Okay. So, what should we do to our children? That's a question. Yeah. And the second one, the second 1/3 If we keep them in if somebody don't want to change the world, okay, thank you. So let's take the first one. If you don't want to change, you will not change.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:44

Allah if there's a verse in Surah to the straw, Allah subhanaw taala says men are either a hero or Salah HRSA were who are more min for all that you can kind of say your home mascara. Whomsoever once the hereafter.

00:33:45 --> 00:34:25

Once number one, I have to want it. But that's not enough. wasa Allah has saya you work hard, say is one of the hardest pillars of Hajj or Umrah. You have to work hard and you work for it Lucha for the akhira. Three wahome I mean, believe that Allah will never let him down and Allah right away say for all that you can kind of say your home mascara. Your hard work will bring fruit. Now you have to be patient. You know, when this comes up, I always say this to myself. Why did the Roswaal a saw to a sinner stay 10 years or 13 years in Makkah suffering?

00:34:26 --> 00:34:33

Couldn't Allah subhanaw taala moved him right away to Medina. Why this time? Because everything takes time.

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

Everything takes time took me more than 12 years to become an OBGYN.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:59

Me time we need patient and the reward is not on the result. The reward is on the efforts. Your dua will be rewarded because you're making the DUA. That's more than enough. So I need to be patient and I need to be persistent. And sometimes it comes right away. Sometimes it takes years.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:49

That's the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. One of the most important thing and I didn't have time to elaborate for me and you to stay steadfast you know what? There are a full law. No Allah. No Who is he? Not the superficial? Allah, the real one. That the one who showed me, the one who went I'm sick cure me, the one who gives me children, the one who doesn't want to give me children, it's all him. Children is a major issue these days. This, this is a huge challenge. Now we have to remember we are a small we are a baby community, if you compare it with the other communities, what's the stamp with the Muslim in my personal opinion in the Muslim community in the west now what they need no more

00:35:49 --> 00:35:49


00:35:50 --> 00:35:54

What we need is proper Islamic schools.

00:35:56 --> 00:36:12

Proper. In Ghana, when people complain about the stamp school when I was in St. Louis, and I did actually a search and I said look at the budget of the public school and come and look at the budget of that stomach score reality. Right four times.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:14

Four times millions.

00:36:16 --> 00:37:03

We need to protect the children is we need our own Islamic school. And exactly at Imam Zaid said it today. And we are not apologetic about what we believe in. A man is a man a woman is a woman that sits I had this discussion with Muslim youth. And I'm an OBGYN and they kept telling me they were born like that. I said well lie. I've been 20 years OBGYN, have never delivered, but a ban. A boy or a girl have done surgeries. Allah knows how many. There is nothing in that woman except ovary and uterus. Very few exceptions. But that's what they feed them in schools. till we get there. And this is I've seen this, this is one of the best things in California. They do homeschooling.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:24

So huge, especially in southern California. They had a conference last Saturday 300 families 300 families educated they say we are not going to put our kids because that's the norm. Anywhere you go now I went to a dentist I had to fill information she he or others

00:37:26 --> 00:37:30

Subhan Allah. So for what we can do is

00:37:31 --> 00:37:42

establishing schools, homeschooling, you can't not everyone can do that. Your Home has to counteract what they see in eight hours in the school.

00:37:43 --> 00:38:18

In Action, you're not going to bring them on a Sunday school here for two or three hours. And you think they will become Imam, Abu Hanifa, they're not going to happen. It's not going to happen, honestly, because it's a huge flood out there. You need to be the proper Muslim you need to be the proper Muslim practice. And Allah has number one and the deen is number one. And I will end up with this the result is not in your hand or mine. Say you know, his son was Kaffir Satan or Ibrahim his father was scaffold

00:38:19 --> 00:38:26

and a lot of dua, and a lot of DUA and may Allah protect all the children your ebme time for the TRC

00:38:29 --> 00:38:30

because he gave me

00:38:32 --> 00:38:43

money, because it was like a lot for for being here today. I had a quick question. And it was in regards to the topic of being on steadfast

00:38:44 --> 00:39:31

and just like love for such a beautiful topic. But my question was, sometimes in our life, people tend to live on either two extremes, finding a middle ground is very difficult for them. So if they work, they overwork they become workaholics. If they you know our mothers, they're so into motherhood, they tend to forget that they were an individual first. If they are you know, they go to extremes. I was wondering how would a Muslim in nowadays age because there's so much demand on us as humans now how would we keep ourselves that fast? What are steps that we can try to limit ourselves from that extremism? Because we catch ourselves becoming instead of you know, just a Muslim and I'm

00:39:31 --> 00:39:37

was a woman and it won't me now we become workaholics. We become overly simple.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:57

As long as everything you're doing is halal. That's the number one requirement. Use something called which is essence of this deen is the NIA is intention. I always tell to breastfeeding mothers right or she has a baby in his she has to change the diaper. make this an act of worship

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

by changing your

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

Nia because if nobody will change the diaper of this baby, what will happen? If you didn't take care of the Amana Allah gave you and don't change it because he's your basil so that's not for Allah. It changes because this is an Amana Allah gave it to you and you're doing it to please Allah and in everything you do change your knee. This is one of the first thing I learned. When I started studying, I wanted to quit OB GYN. You know, this is all of us, I can do it. I remember and my teacher said the following, may Allah reward them definitely for dose. He said, No. We need educated Muslim, because if every Muslim will quit and study who's going to be taking care of the community,

00:40:39 --> 00:40:58

he said, but when you open the door and this is for every physician, if there are physicians here, when you open the door to see a patient, say to Allah before you open the door, you are witnesses for you. So if the patient praised you, or the patient sued you it doesn't matter because you did it for Allah.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:24

And this way you you wash the dishes, you cook for the family, the brothers going out to work or going out to get groceries, whatever you're doing, make it for Allah and it is for Allah as long as it is halal done in the halal way. And then put the other last thing I'll say put the Archaea before your dunya and if I'm doing 16 hours for work, and I have known here where is the after

00:41:25 --> 00:41:30

but it is possible the evening what you please

00:41:31 --> 00:41:31


00:41:35 --> 00:41:36
