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

I've seen

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

some open adapters have

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

had 100 and a little card in the content hub. arbitrarily solder us Cindy only wired up the temporary sharing of public public. I mean,

00:00:18--> 00:00:37

with an exception today for a reason because we're supposed to start the series we started the series of how to understand that. But I made an exception because of a request. And actually the request came in a very good time for everybody and definitely for myself. We just finished it humbler by the two seasons have

00:00:39--> 00:01:06

seasons to bring to bring us closer for loss Pantoja turn our game better to practice our deeds. Let's actually move on and have Julie Mel accept from everyone who went for those who do not go for hydralic said the heart of the heart may align bite them sooner than later. Now the problem always we've always known as and when people come back from Hydra what is the first thing you want to do? But again, see them why

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

not because you know at all This

00:01:11--> 00:01:52

is accepted and all this procure usually usually you want to go and look at their faces. And there's something I don't know if you have seen this, but some people come back from different the look on their faces difference pound, well, you really have to pay attention to this. This is something that are studied in the books and something you see. And then when you talk to these people, something happened to them. And they're not necessarily something strange is just they felt different. Or they did things different, that they came back different. So this is beautiful. This is amazing. This is what you always have to ask for what the problem is what, one second back. And then I come back what

00:01:52--> 00:02:38

is on hand the prosthetic handler secondary handler that third week, and gradually and not only from hedge fund that's also when you go for more, that's also one that's also sometimes without any of these things, but sometimes you feel you're so strong, you wake up without further wake up before we do everything a loved ones can control your tongue if you don't look at harms sometimes and you are the same human being the same person. Sometimes you're so weak, that you will easily you easily succumb to things that you normally is not a big deal for you. And this is actually the concept is is absolutely there in our Deen. This is part of our elands part of our creed. That email train,

00:02:38--> 00:03:29

increase and decrease. That's well known. Emmanuel Zito says when you study clearly study or predict, they teach you that faith gets stronger, get weaker. And then they teach you exactly this line, and imaginary. Well, possibly Masaya the man faith. Faith means what? Let me translate first and then I'll go and listen. Faith will increase by obedience of Allah and decrease by disobedience of Allah as a principle. So what does faith mean? Pay is something I feel absolutely right. And Mo, Bill, right. And then allow me know when Giovanna photostimulation, my heart knows my body, every part of my body acts and especially my tongue says this feeling and these actions and these

00:03:29--> 00:04:15

reactions changes. One day increase and one day is decrease. And that's why you come back from Have you come back from home or or even you come you go out from from this from a class or you read a book or your doctor and properly you wake up for the day you wake up for federal a new Panama, you need the beautiful solar, or you control your tongue. You didn't say something and you feel so close to Allah. So these are number one is fact. I mean, why are we introducing putting this as an introduction? This is a fact. I have to accept it. And I don't feel too validated. And down because I am not the same as yesterday, or I'm not the same as when I was in Moscow or I was with with dad

00:04:15--> 00:04:36

situation with that situation. Having said that, that doesn't mean okay. I have the classroom it's about this. I don't have to worry. So my mind will get lower and I'm in a good shape. The answer is no. Because when you remain get weaker on the face get weaker. It's going to continue to get weaker and weaker and weaker. And then a lot knows what's going to happen.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

So I really need to two things. We're going to get to the seconds what we are going to talk about, number one, I need to identify it. I need to identify that my email is getting weaker, because that's the first sign. How do you feel this? Simple. Number one, look at the basics. How is how are you

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

With the obligations of a law start with the obligations don't talk about fasting tomorrow, fasting Thursdays I'm talking about basics how I am with my signer meaning my morning my fudger my both my also my afternoon my novel of sunset and my addition how I am and when Eamon when the faith gets weaker This is what happens and you all probably will feel this you're not going to just miss the satellite

00:05:28--> 00:05:55

today you have been doing the fight on time and martial law beautiful and then tomorrow suddenly wake up and then gone it doesn't work This will show fine doesn't work this way Why? Because if he works this way, it's not gonna work. It doesn't work it has to work gradual so this is usually what happens and this is where you're going to once you see this you're going to basically wake up you're going to start yourself feeling lazy

00:05:56--> 00:06:18

meaning follows at 12 degrees so you know what, I'm not talking you have you have reasons now that is not at all or you are at work and this is your break and then you start thinking please you know it's 12 1215 Let me finish this let me finish that sort of gradually you're going to be weaker you can then you're going to be less attached

00:06:19--> 00:06:33

and you gradually is going to start slipping by delaying that's one and if you want of course of what you're doing your extra as you're doing your your voluntary sala sulan you're going to start yourself skipping,

00:06:34--> 00:06:46

skipping right so now you know it's like I'm busy for before or two after or two after before after that's 45 minutes you know I will go home I'll do it. Gradually.

00:06:48--> 00:07:02

Tongan gradually is gonna start slipping by two ways are getting weaker. That's the kind of a lot normally you came back from how joy you are strong and you work we sit after Salah, you do all your last cup and gradually slips away.

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

And used to control it very well. You don't talk about people you don't see but the truth, you don't do any of these things and gradually are slipping.

00:07:11--> 00:07:51

So these are just give you some examples. These are the signs that literally, you need to wake up and start doing something. Because if you don't, or I don't, we don't, it's gonna be weaker and weaker and more difficult than more difficult. It's like when you first first have a fever. Think of it this way because it's a disease of the heart. It's not a disease of the body. You have a fever you feel you're gonna have you feel it. It's a flu is coming. What do you normally do? You say, You know what? I'm feeling not to not not well. So I'm going to take it easy, right? I'm going to probably do this not do that. I'm going to make sure I think a lot of fluid. I'm going to sleep

00:07:51--> 00:08:22

today because I don't want to get too by Don't do this. I am really going to get sick and then I have to stay home. That's how it is. And if somebody doesn't do this, what do you tell them? I told you. I told you take it easy. I told you drink a lot of fluids. Take rest. This is exactly the same when you start seeing these. You don't feel it. The solder What did you read? You have no idea. You're not there. You're not connected? Stand up or sit down and say Hmm, I need to take action.

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

And what is the actions? That's what we're going to talk about what is the actions? What do you think?

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

There was many it's not one it's actually like 10

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

Okay, still fun. A lot of asking for forgiveness.

00:08:38--> 00:08:43

Make a dua asked for one supplication are going to come to this but I just want you to think with me.

00:08:46--> 00:08:53

Absolutely extra, do extra goodies. Okay? What is wasting your time?

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

Okay, so fun.

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

Extra, this is all of the extras, so extras, and we're gonna come to it. I just want you to think what else I do. It's too important.

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

That your

00:09:13--> 00:09:18

doctor, just remind yourself here button actions. These are all actions.

00:09:22--> 00:09:36

I thought you said seek knowledge. seek knowledge, learn, learn, remind, don't say I know what oh, I've heard this before. Keep reading it. Keep doing it. Knowledge and

00:09:37--> 00:09:58

pumping. Who you are spending time with or your friends or the people in your church or the people who love to go out with. So remember these are meant to take you through it. Number one is a doula number one, once you start feeling I'm weak. I'm not there. I'm slipping.

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

While and I'm going to share with you every point I'm going to share with you, this is a beautiful drop off, as well as Sahabi companion asked him, and he said yada, yada. And he said, I saw this on Twitter, looked at him shared that with me. And he said, you should look at this. This is so much like us today. He said, when you start seeing people start collecting, collecting

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

gold and silver,

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

collecting more and more and more

00:10:33--> 00:11:14

fatness decrease. You start collecting what these words. So he was teaching him when he started whipping around there. See people are now here commenting, competing. And you know the competition we all have, right? We have lost pantalla protectors. And unfortunately, the competition is so easy. It's available. It's free. I wouldn't say it's free, but it's cheap. It's not too expensive. And we love it. So we run for it, or something I don't like it. It's the other way around. It's something you would you like and you say, you know, for example, this is just for you. The other way The other day I was looking for something I needed to buy, right? And then the guy was telling me all these

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

options, or this new options, and this new options are beautiful.

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

Now looking at I looked at it, it's not that expensive, with this option, maybe $50 more,

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

or $100 with the option without the option $100. So what are you going to usually say, what is

00:11:35--> 00:12:00

it took me for about 1015 minutes? And I said no, you're not doing it. Because this is too much. And I'm not going to details but it was so tempting. And everybody in that store was trying to make me buy this to the point I'm trying to see is all this life and material things available is there, everyone has it, and people will dominate you when you don't have a problem.

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

You don't have people's like.

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

So he said, when you start seeing people collecting and gathering

00:12:10--> 00:12:14

gold and silver, you collect the following and talk to them.

00:12:15--> 00:12:22

And advices from phone or a lot. I ask you steadfastness in this matter.

00:12:23--> 00:12:57

First thing he was asking him when you start seeing people competing, you turn to Allah says you're lucky, we spent hours on this deal. That means what? Staying steadfast is not easy. Otherwise, I will not turn to Allah The first thing and I say y'all keep me strong. Right? It's like, for example, somebody who doesn't like exercise, Target, you always say, we love it. We do it right. But some people who loves it, they will stop what is the problem normally, so number one, your law, I asked you steadfastness in this matter.

00:12:59--> 00:13:08

And the resolve the resolve, I'm asking you to have put in my heart, the resolve to stay on the straight path

00:13:09--> 00:13:22

and resolve to stay on the straight path. And I'm asking you every deed, every saying every action that will bring to me Your mercy and love

00:13:23--> 00:14:06

to beautiful to see what what he didn't ask anything specific is as some things are general, the most important one is I want to stay with the dog or the supplications say, I want to stay straight, I want to stay on the straight path. So I'm asking you to back up, I cannot do it. alone. I'm too weak, too much temptations around, especially for us those who work, especially those for work because you're exposed to a lot of other things. And a lot of disobedience, a lot, a lot of things that you don't want to do, but you will maybe have to do because it doesn't fit all these things. So number one, I asked you steadfastness in this battle, and put in my heart, the resolve the resolve,

00:14:06--> 00:14:26

to stay on the straight path. And give me everything that will bring your mercy and love to me. And I've asked you and I want you to pay attention to these because these are one of the the reasons that will keep you strong. I asked you to be grateful to you're

00:14:28--> 00:14:49

grateful to your name. And as we always say here, Count your blessings. And I'm not talking blessings, color and the house and the children. I'm talking about the blessings in me as a human as an individual. I can see. I can hear. I can breathe, I can walk, no pain. I can wake up in the morning. I can understand all these basics basics.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Question chromatic make me great what your nierman and host Nevada ticket I worship you in the best manner that you will like

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

I can do and I asked you now for this sound heart

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

and a truthful tongue.

00:15:09--> 00:15:24

I asked her was fantastic because these are the reasons we start getting weaker, I start singing things I shouldn't say I started listening to things I shouldn't and the heart starts getting weaker and weaker. alabaster opens sending you a sound horse

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

and I asked you for every goodness that you know

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

and I seek refuge from every evil that you know and I asked for forgiveness to once you know

00:15:38--> 00:15:45

that because you know everything you are that you don't want the hidden and the unseen. So number one,

00:15:46--> 00:15:54

you are really trying to watch and see and if you don't know this drug, I actually have it for you here I may make copies later in our in English.

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

By the time you mobilizes drop, the bottom line, you can use one line which is basically not like up strong.

00:16:04--> 00:16:22

You're watching baseball keep me on the straight path. There's too much along the way. And I am weak and I'm failing say this or what was your feeling and I am failing and we are failing, say it to him because this will remind you and if you are sincere, for sure you are sincere otherwise why you're asking

00:16:24--> 00:16:34

that you don't know what will happen. How you will stay stronger and stronger. So number one is a drop. supplication. Number two

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

What do you think?

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

Plenty of remembering the worst.

00:16:44--> 00:16:53

And this is one of the few things that was fatality when he says Cathedral planting. What is planting? What do you say when I eat too much means

00:16:57--> 00:17:00

I need too much is too much What does too much

00:17:03--> 00:17:41

till you feel almost sick and you feel uncomfortable. Some people says you know what I cannot even go to bed in the night and I have like indigestion right? That's too much. Because till you feel you cannot do this anymore not because you're weak because you really have had done a lot and a lot into things a lot inequality and a lot in quantity. Quantity meeting time. How much of the 24 hours remove sleep that you are on? I am we are doing remember as of last how much if you look at today each one of us how many hours

00:17:43--> 00:17:59

that we spend one hour the numbers up a lot and don't think of remembrance only remember as meaning I sit down and I remember Allah Salah is remembering Allah really important is remembering about asking. Step four is remembering how much did we collect this one hour? How long is overslept?

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

No one was

00:18:02--> 00:18:21

right. If we do five minutes is too long. People say well what is that? Right? We do five minutes so if you could like the whole size, I'm going to be 30 minutes. Do we spend another 30 minutes in any form of remembering almost on daily basis I'm not saying now on daily basis can throw out within curricula.

00:18:23--> 00:18:41

Plenty plenty and swelling salatu salam says this is actually saying that blog now bus and the problem which is it's it's coming from the heavy the water Swati santosa he said the chiffon is sitting there watching your heart and mind.

00:18:43--> 00:18:49

Jazz is like sitting right there on the heart when that heart becomes forgetful

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

valeant shavon will start whispering

00:18:55--> 00:19:06

when the when the heart wakes up shut down we'll stop and somebody asked me the other day How do you know this is shavon whispering or this is me wanting something

00:19:08--> 00:19:14

she would have tried many ways for example so a lot of time comes

00:19:15--> 00:19:29

and chiffon we're gonna sit down with those 30 minutes or there's a one hour left for the for the solder and they're gonna say no. And then a lot brings back in your in your mind like the most beloved to Allah salon time.

00:19:30--> 00:19:34

So chiffon says you know what, this is their work. So I'm going to do another trick.

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

And they say oh, this is very important. You have to do it right now.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

So that the tax exchange that she that she upon is whispering and making you weaker mean by next hour and the first was like a baby nap. I wanted I wanted I wanted I like it. This is your nurse talking. So now you know. So in Milan we always say this in Milan shape.

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

This change so when I disobeyed lied to me there's no other reason so basically a lot of remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala on what and change it because we get bored change it meaning in the morning I did my Salah right and then let's assume I did

00:20:17--> 00:20:23

that I get very busy as you're working as you're working in preparing doing if you're at home cooking put

00:20:24--> 00:20:54

listen to the listen and speaker of a lot and you say well I'm not focusing This is bigger of a law. It's way better to listen to something else, let alone talking about the follow one knows what I'm saying. Right? You get to your car same thing okay, I sometimes get full of the Quran which shouldn't say no man said the following. Allah I love this. This scene was in every school on school I attended he says, say that I'm very famous man. He said if our hearts are pure, we'll never have enough of the words of Allah.

00:20:55--> 00:21:39

Allah, Luna Masha economic arena, if our hearts were pure, never have enough of the words of Allah. But reality you get tired I'm overwhelmed. So fine, don't listen, listen to something else. Why do I listen, I change it I put in a lecture video a YouTube something to remind you of a lot. Sometimes you need nothing You don't need to listen to anything you need to be quiet and just look around you. Because that's the one of the most beautiful way of reminding us of was pantile when you look at the beautiful baby, when you look at the beautiful scene, this is all liquor This is all the confirmer when you talk to someone and that person is asking for advice, which is very common. And as you're

00:21:39--> 00:22:19

advising that person she or he you are actually doing what you're reminding them for most pantalla that's the case it will make you stronger make me stronger. So this is the thing is what is my tongue is saying which is 90% of the time is saying something it needs to be something pleasing for me doesn't have to be downwards I'm sure all the time. I mean not everybody can do that. But everything I am saying even like I always remind myself in my office when we see patients remind them of japantown right even if they are non Muslims say the word God that's remember as you remember before they do so cancer to the karela and the non negotiable I say this to myself is you

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

always have to do because if you don't then then we start slipping and slipping is the so called after swallow don't move

00:22:28--> 00:22:54

don't move when I was taught this Panama I don't know it's two minutes to three minutes how long it takes you to do the remainder the few lines after h solder it doesn't take more than five minutes it doesn't The Morning Good evening as context about 20 minutes but the morning but the Salah the car after Salah remembering a lot the traditional whatever Swami Assad who said this takes five minutes and see what it does

00:22:56--> 00:23:01

what it does for your hearts hallelujah. So put this everyday

00:23:02--> 00:23:06

everyday and I asked this to everybody how often you check your social media.

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

Whatever social media you have, right?

00:23:12--> 00:23:32

Right. How many times you look at the words of God are eating cleaning, even if I don't understand it's not the best Yes, but at least I'm reading I'm seeing his words versus I'm seeing so confirm to decorilla for an esteana turn tomasetti Allah helped me

00:23:33--> 00:23:39

that's a bad actually when you seek the help of a law for something that's by itself an act of worship.

00:23:40--> 00:23:56

And we don't do this like anything you need anything you need literally any as simple as you're driving and assume your GPS is not working or you put the wrong address right and the GPS is taking you somewhere else What do you normally we do

00:23:59--> 00:24:09

this GPS whatever well they gave me the wrong angle and we start blaming by whatever last person to blame is me Of course, it's always somebody else for you return you said your show me.

00:24:10--> 00:24:38

They can guide you through the right way. Some that's think that's remembrance and that's esteana that you are asking. So step siana is ask Allah to help you to stay strong. So do ah in general, but the one I shared with you asked her was pantalla to keep you on the straight but every single one does require a saw to sell photos in his prostration is sort of what if he taught us young, valuable

00:24:41--> 00:24:57

or you the one who change hearts, turn hearts, keep my heart on your team, on your path on your straight path on your religion. Why is that? And he's also having psychosis. I always every time I read this I was like y'all

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

that means it

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

Everyone can have cars, it can happen to anybody. But of course, different levels, everyone has a different level. But the most the other, the most important thing is teaching you and me fact that that hard can change. And then there is a there is a recipe for young people. The one more you turned out, keep my heart on your path.

00:25:23--> 00:25:26

Next one, which is very nice, because it's from habito. For us.

The title may be difficult, but the heavy from

00:25:32--> 00:25:37

the title says, keep being mindful, mindful of Allah.

00:25:38--> 00:26:10

But then he says the following, which is Hadley this morning, actually, it was after photos, and this is repeated in everywhere. But roswaal he saw them Sam says number one happens. He was behind the wrist while the slides were set up on the account. And that he turned to him on his side. And he says all Boyd and his collar says he was a young boy is what was between 11 or 14 that's the age to young boy I'm teaching you something.

00:26:11--> 00:26:18

Teaching you so imagine when you turn to your son or your daughter and says I'm teaching you something that's me this something is important.

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

In me while you're in revising, I am teaching you words and one narration memorize them.

we might mindful of Allah, Allah who have been mindful of you.

00:26:37--> 00:26:51

Or guard Allah, Allah will guard you there's a beautiful expression like 20 pages of this hadith but what what what's easy for us to remember and this caller says what this how do I got on was

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

00:27:33--> 00:28:20

I have a lot wait with regard to what would protect you don't feel this don't see that it's a blunder. Right? You got to impart it to someone and you will know for a fact that when you're going to go to that place there will be or you will be weak and you may slip in any way or form with a slip of the heart of the slip of the tongue or the slip of the body My heart will see things or like things why don't more safe things or my buddy will say things why I got to the law. I kept my Salah I struggled by capital it was gonna help something is going to happen either you're not going to go or you're going to be something going to happen again we need to leave early or a walk or send

00:28:20--> 00:28:34

someone in that gathering paying attention to this one you because social life is the biggest problem we have the biggest challenge for all of us or love will send someone that that person will protect you

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

distract you remind you let's go for prayer say something for the lab.

00:28:42--> 00:28:53

So the first one is look at the solder second one how it was for heavy The first one is not to listen and the holly says the same word. Now you'll have a lot of trouble not

00:28:55--> 00:29:01

only new the believer can protect and keep the rule and the same would happen

00:29:02--> 00:29:32

and they say the person to panela who keep the rule which is you think it's easy especially with a tie who are living in or bathrooms is everywhere. Bright I mean how many bathrooms in our homes who doesn't have a bathroom in his house right who doesn't have a hot water in his house? We all live in Africa right and and which place we go and there is no bathroom which will be good there's no bathroom Marshal mathematical on our budget What a beautiful clean bathrooms. Right? But we don't do it.

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

How about we wash our hands

00:29:36--> 00:29:43

and their signs everywhere. Put a sign inside your heart and says do you hold it will take two more minutes.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

Basically to not even get to one half of the believer will keep on God the whoo what's going to happen on what we call you to Allah. This is how it is it's like a

00:30:02--> 00:30:17

I'm not doing it for a long way guide me part of a wash a core part of his name that grateful the way he will reward me for this other than writing good deeds for me. He's going to protect me from stealing

00:30:18--> 00:30:28

and this is why when I go for hygiene I go for all right and I go for these good I come back stronger because I guard with a lot there. We're seeing this the other day. What do we do when we go to

00:30:29--> 00:30:37

look at your day? By look at your day when we go when we have been in the hospital last time. What do we do in Milan even if we didn't go for

00:30:39--> 00:30:57

most of the day we are guarding a mosque. So you know this is Ramadan, fasting, what will happen it will give you energy to come to the masjid and stay two hours standing during taraweeh at 11am and 11pm. And other days you cannot do it. So if Allah

00:30:58--> 00:31:34

give this God Allah God lower your gaze, lower your gaze which is something we forgot completely to Panama, lower your gaze is your love will give you in your heart. So basically, as much as you can go the last panel that he will keep you strong. One of the most important one is the company. Company. I cannot re emphasize the company, young or old. And as I say always we are Marcia one of Oracle ma city Party City.

00:31:36--> 00:31:50

parties can easily get invited three times in a day. Am I wrong in the weekend? Right now there is rules in this is the headquarters there is the right of the Muslim you have to go as long as there is no disobedience of Omar but you don't have to go to every word.

00:31:52--> 00:32:31

And then when I go I remember this who is going to be there not I love them. I like them. When I did this they came when I had this they did that's not for a long are these people righteous people? Not necessarily will give you a lecture but at least they will keep you a good human being. When you sit with them. You're not going to hear she said he said and when you are with them when they are eating you're not going to learn or see waste wastefulness of food and becomes normal. So Masako lacava sada. Hey masala habit to find people who will remind you of Milan or Swati islampur samsudin this honey and the movement that

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

they believe is the melody of their belief. What is their memory?

00:32:38--> 00:32:39

What does it

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

show you your beauties

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

sometimes don't want to look at them at one time we say I'm not going to look at them. Why?

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

Because you know what you're gonna see why you don't want to see it.

00:32:55--> 00:33:12

But if you are getting hired to leave, you spend about 1015 minutes in front of the mirror. Because you look you like what you're seeing and you want to make it even nicer having dinner there's nothing wrong with that. As long as you make looking at the mirror is a way of staying strong by

00:33:14--> 00:33:44

making the door when you look at the mirror, you're just like you made me beautiful make me entirely beautiful. So and warming but at the moment that really is the middle of the video. So what does the mirror do shows the reality the mirror does not hide. So my the people who I am spending time with shouldn't be harmed, not the people who will pamper me all the time. People will praise me from morning to evening. And when I make a mistake, there's no problem. It's okay.

00:33:46--> 00:33:57

I don't want these people because that's what my nerves do all the time. from morning to evening, right? What does my nurse do? Does my wife says we will be careful where you are going no one has enough says almost nobody will come forward.

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

Right? How can I

00:34:01--> 00:34:04

know I want somebody looking at me and says that said

00:34:06--> 00:34:27

you just came back from HUD. Allah gave you all this he invited you to this out and you came back and that's it. This is what do you do? And there's something for example, somebody says I'm gonna pass Thursday, but some people say wonderful luck about it promote your fast Thursday, like are shorter, the more minimal attend moment then believe or the winner of the baby or watch and say only Thursday.

00:34:28--> 00:34:29

That's it What about nine?

00:34:31--> 00:34:45

Right? You're gonna say well, I work you know all these things. And then is it so seven o'clock, just like you skipped lunch at work. This is what you want. You want people It's exactly like exercise. I look at this as like exercise.

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

When you are with somebody for exercise two hours a day, every day, and there is people like that. I know these people. I know some of these people two hours a day, right? If you spend time with these people

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

A lot of the time what you will end up minimum loving exercise. minimum minimum minimum saying, Come on, they do two hours at least 10 minutes. Right? And gradually you'll become like them. Same thing here. And marijuana. Dini Halina is a software services person is the same way his his close friends, close friends, and we do this with our children. Pamela was so worried about our children who they are their friends, let's check in on the checking who gets their phone or see who they are thirsty. But when it comes to us, we don't pay attention to this samosa.

00:35:44--> 00:35:49

The company or the good people, you're gonna have some people say, well, there is no good people anymore.

00:35:52--> 00:36:04

I have a hard time believing this number. Right? has to be let's assume you live in the middle of nowhere, which is very unlikely. But then there is no what do you do?

00:36:05--> 00:36:20

pantalon This is when I remember the story gives me goosebumps, one of my friends for some of you may know, and our son is one blind since he was born. Like that's, of course what I like gave him What a lot even including he got mallets

00:36:21--> 00:36:38

and his mother used to say you know what, Lucky him you know who's his friends and I said who's his friends because not only not only he is blind, also his ethical issues, but very smart. He said he spent morning to evening listening to the stories of Sahaba

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

Yeah, she said he talks about them like they are in his friends.

00:36:44--> 00:36:53

To condominium the point I'm trying to make if I cannot find these really righteous people, then you then they are

00:36:55--> 00:37:14

if you want every day you listen to three lines lines, just find or listen now we cannot read your our patient tweet anymore. Have you seen that if the email is five lines, you cannot stop. So listen. And that's why they made up the I bought the iBooks or the audio books these days. Because now you listen.

00:37:15--> 00:38:09

So learn about these people learn about their rights as human beings that I just people that you see. And these people are don't think anything before. That is righteous people are among us in the law, when you see them, you cannot imagine and they are true human beings woman, they're married or have children or they work all this animal. So Mossad haven't solved anything we spend your time with with the brightest people. Next one is learning. I cannot stress on this. I cannot learning, learning, learning learning, learn about a loss pattern. If you learn about a lot alone, this is way, way more than enough to change me and change you in knowledge. These days and age and I say

00:38:09--> 00:38:31

this twice before anyone Well, one or the other, we would have no excuse when we are standing in front of a wall to say I didn't learn no excuse. And I can feel it personally when I used to prepare this used to take me four hours minimum because I would have to translate and I have to open the books and look for these days that

00:38:32--> 00:38:48

you just if you know the heartbeat you just put their word and have used comes in translated everything you printed done. The work that used to take an hour to an hour takes 10 to 15 minutes, let alone all this YouTubes

00:38:50--> 00:39:22

fully sometimes I don't know which will happen. The lesson is I want to have that that one time to listen to one subject. Make it part of your diet, part of your daily daily knowledge has to be daily in this day and age. Why? Because we are bombarded with the negative outside. You have to acknowledge this wherever you live, doesn't matter where you live. Even if you're alone in the house. If you have TV a lot in the morning, my last pantalla only help us so daily alone.

00:39:23--> 00:39:59

Whether it's a tape, whether it's a video, whether it's a capture anything that reminds you of a mall, and see where it is your weakness, for example, let's say somebody's lack patient, lack patience, you know, cannot everything has to be done otherwise, or somebody has temper which we all do these days because I don't have the availability or learn about that topic. Learn about I mean this is not something you have to memorize the Quran is doing tasks and I can just listen. Do yourself a favor and listen

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

Hey,

00:40:02--> 00:40:43

it's available free, you're paying money, you pay little you pay a lot, you name it, it is new. But it definitely increase I remember when I first started studying, the advice I was given is like you do not study this, this, this knowledge, like you're studying medicine. This needs way more. This is exactly I remember the advice. And I thought studying medicine for those of us who are physicians, it was the hardest thing ever. you memorize all the books remember and residency don't even talk about right? And they said nope, this is the game of football, give it your heart, this is the first thing they said give it your heart before you give it anything else. As your the log will give you

00:40:43--> 00:40:54

which is so untrue. That out becomes easy becomes enjoyable, and becomes available. So in and, and Quran.

00:40:55--> 00:41:38

reading the Quran, part of your day, there's three levels of the Quran and Chapa. Next time we meet together, we're going to make this series of how do I understand the Quran, which we started two weeks ago, or on two, three levels. And I said this before, I'm going to share it again because it helps all of us to remember, the beauty of the bride is exactly like you are on the shore of the ocean. So you're on the beach, and you see beauty. Beautiful. If somebody asked you were always on the beach, I can tell you. No, really, it's beautiful. I don't think there's anything as beauty as this Sunset on the beach by or there's waves even when it is very, very harsh. And it's very, that

00:41:38--> 00:42:22

the wind the winds is very strong. And you see the waves very high. It's it's breathtaking. drawables then move on to people who are doing snorkeling. And they will see the code and they will see just under the water. And they'll tell you haven't seen any beauty. Come down and just see all this beauty all these animals, all these colors, all the beautiful. People will do deep diving, they will say to the people of snorkeling, you've seen nothing. This is just the superficial destroyed there. Come down and see. So the people who are deeply say to the people less deep, you don't see much. The people who are here they will say the people on the beach, you haven't seen much. This is

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

this is exactly how the

00:42:26--> 00:42:33

Navy Diver law. The more you read speller, the law, I was reading Sora this morning, which I probably Allah knows how much I've ever heard.

00:42:34--> 00:42:46

Right? First time ever, I noticed something first time ever. I was like, yeah, that was not that difficult. So I'm just worried that a lot of people know. And then you start

00:42:47--> 00:42:59

this is what it is. And then you start especially when you read when you read and you know this word, but you read it. No one will show you the beauty. The more you ask for the future log will show you more.

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

Read it read it on love. Don't look at it. hamdulillah we still have we have Robert Johnson. How did that go? I will not say no, we still have it. We're still if you see the war on the floor what you normally do your job and you will pick it up hamdulillah is good news. I still we still feel it like like these days, once that time comes in, and you're in a gathering and have people don't get up or sign up.

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

Usually.

00:43:28--> 00:43:55

Right? So we've lost this reverence of solder, but rubbers for the ground. We still have it. You're lucky monkey lovers for all your your symbols. As we had the reference to the Quran, when we look at it, we need to work on ourselves to have numbers when you open it. And I've said this many times repeatedly. Firstly, when you open the Quran before even you read anything, say to yourself the following. These are the words of my Lord.

00:43:57--> 00:44:34

This is the words. It's his words. Imagine, imagine someone you love someone so dear to you and they call you on the phone? What do you do? You don't talk to anybody. Actually you will go and close the door and you want to enjoy especially for somebody close to any human being. I was just, I just want to hear that important. You keep talking. And then people says I don't have anything else to say just keep saying anything because I want to hear it. That's when you love someone through referrals. You want to hear their voice then you want to hear their words. What about almost someone when you look at the Quran when you open the blinds say this

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

this is the words of mine.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

And number to say these are for me to private talk. He's talking to me, do you us as you are was saying sometimes he's fairly valuable. And look at these few concepts. Sometimes he introduced himself to you when we found a lot of unlearning a lot hood or a lot. We're living

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

Audio this is you know he's introducing himself to you and we have no no excuse I was like you know what I didn't know you're

00:45:08--> 00:45:50

like what do you say for example again example from life when you when you go from a physician right these days every physician has a website right and what's on the website causes that position right? This is this and this and this graduate whatever did interest all this and then you say you know what? This is good. I think I if you go to our website and there is no talk about the position What are you gonna say? I don't know what they are. So unless pantalla de exalted he's introducing himself to you and to me in number one look at the Quran this way I think we need to change the way we look at the Quran is not only the book of Oman I know as I always say, Oh I know Allah well I

00:45:50--> 00:45:56

noticed I was to use no don't look at it this way. say this is the word of Allah is teaching me about him

00:45:58--> 00:46:04

every letter I'm going to read are going to be rewarded you all know that but remind yourself that so make

00:46:05--> 00:46:13

part of your day 10 minutes to read the juice to read the whole product as you say it which is 20 pages

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

usually 40 minutes 40 minutes

00:46:23--> 00:46:38

20 minutes the average is 20 to 25 minutes, the average speed but if you are reading it slower or you're reading the commentary or then it will take 40 minutes right okay 40 minutes too long. I don't have for you I'll make it easy for

00:46:39--> 00:46:44

10 minutes in the morning 10 minutes in the afternoon tablets in the desert is

00:46:45--> 00:46:57

that when this meaning you'll read about the three pages and three pages in the afternoon three pages how I know somebody I know that person very well. Right. And of course now

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

that the cook

00:47:01--> 00:47:10

cook she has to put family and children they have to she has it there are a special luckily the carrier of the Columbia right actually looks

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

because if you work such as children, having this 10 or 15 minutes may not be reality every day. My point is don't give yourself excuses. Have this resolve Why Why did I share the person had these with you? The first thing I started by localizing Matala was the resolve and determination to stay on the straight path that's when it comes to resolve when I love something, I do it ladies if it takes six or eight hours, I always say I always bring this for my indo Pakistani friends how long it takes you to make obreon

00:47:49--> 00:47:51

I watched it one day I was like forget it

00:47:52--> 00:48:27

all this chopping of the money and I cannot do that much. Right? How every person from that part of the world does it right these days some of you may already but in general right? To do it you don't like it a lot of people don't like it but you do it right you take another part of the world you come here to the making the fries how long it takes to make a fries I see this to fly a prize before does it because they like it. My point when I like something I spent time I enjoy

00:48:28--> 00:48:38

so this is why I asked for boss pantalla me come in love your words. That's the thing because the problem is not I'm lazy because I don't want to have this. I don't feel it.

00:48:39--> 00:48:49

I don't feel it. So ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it make you want his word. The last but not the least, which is going to be a little bit unpleasant.

00:48:51--> 00:48:53

Stay away from this audience.

00:48:55--> 00:49:00

Stay away from this read as Kathy mercury because this really is one of those

00:49:01--> 00:49:11

that this will Indians will make me weaker and will make me more and more. This will be our last panel. What is this will be to install.

00:49:12--> 00:49:13

What does this mean?

00:49:17--> 00:49:24

Watching TV I wouldn't say watching TV categorically. Specifically, because I could be watching TV and I'm watching a

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

show to teach me how to mobilize.

00:49:29--> 00:49:34

So I will say watching TV when there is disobedience of a lot.

00:49:35--> 00:49:45

Everything By the way, everything can be in a state of disobedience, or a state of obedience. So watching what's the common How long is

00:49:47--> 00:49:52

looking looking back when we walk in the street here how much disappeared we see around the

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

lower your case, second, or probably the same level of math even more

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

Because this would be an awful lot we do is

00:50:03--> 00:50:07

not only backbiting saying things that is not

00:50:08--> 00:50:31

appropriate, saying things that's foul language, saying things it's not pleasing to Allah let alone backbiting let alone putting people down, putting even there with me but I put them down all these the biggest one is a tongue stay away from the disobedient, disobedient almost the more I stay away from disobedience the stronger I am.

00:50:32--> 00:50:53

So and the last 100 east as a mistake for this is specific actually scholars with this special avoid any not including the vicar because that has a special place and last pantalla seven swats in itself which I love this is a beautiful commentary. Allah says oh my Cambodia

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

or my loved one

00:50:57--> 00:50:59

was just talking about the rest of

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

us why he stopped and he said the following a lot will not punish them as long as you are with them.

00:51:08--> 00:51:12

So that's what the people don't Medina What about us? All that kind of

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

stuff.

00:51:15--> 00:51:34

And I'm not we're not punishing them as long as they are asking for forgiveness and that applies to every nation everybody after responding saw and punishment of a law don't think punishment of a lot disasters only punishment of a lot no one what are the punishments of our law you push you away from

00:51:36--> 00:52:03

Panama as a punishment without feeling pushy away from a Salah isn't something you're interested in anymore. William bond becomes difficult, obeying the laws enjoyable that's one of the punishments as a result of disobedience leads so keep asking Allah for still follow the easiest one try this practical. How many of you drive every morning whether to work or take the children to school you have to do this

00:52:04--> 00:52:08

every every 10 minutes don't do anything but say stuff

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

or any form of stuff of

00:52:14--> 00:52:17

any form First of all, you're no longer living.

00:52:19--> 00:52:22

Keep doing this is 10 minutes.

00:54:11--> 00:54:12

Like specially in the time

00:54:13--> 00:54:21

of response are the best times to answer your supplication for example, between abandoned on

00:54:22--> 00:54:47

trains after each slide out before sunset, before sunrise. And before before sundown before further action we saw halftime all these are times where was panned out. He responds all the time but this special times it's the responses even more. He said so so then you look for them still. So I'm going to summarize what we learned. So you all know channel number one number one number one is

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

talent or loss panel number two

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

and add to this so you don't forget to put it number three is foreign or foreign.

00:55:02--> 00:55:07

seeking knowledge, seek knowledge, seek knowledge keep doing that.

00:55:09--> 00:55:35

Company. Absolutely. And this actually can come together. This can come together. Usually probably you will, you will know this is the best people you'll meet other people will use it one day there's an immediate storm, whether you meet them at the masjid, whether you meet them and turn to that place of loss or whether in a class so muscles company, stay away from disobedience. A lot of

00:55:37--> 00:55:39

us come off of forgiveness on a lot of his default.

00:55:44--> 00:56:30

remembers of a lot we said that extra good deeds, extra goodies, maybe I will say this a lot of good deeds and cookies and other cookies say this because even though we still have some goodies or two things, goodies between me and I was pumped out. And that's between you and I was pumped up. And we could do extra extra prayers, extra spending, extra reading, that's between your own was fantastic, but there's something between you and the people, good deeds and number one good deed is forgiving people. Forgiveness people who hurt you people did whatever they did for you. Don't worry about it. Don't worry about it. And one of the ways that handler when I was taught is seeing how much you

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

disobeyed

00:56:32--> 00:56:33

and then I will still give you

00:56:35--> 00:57:11

you still give us sometimes we ask for specific things and give us exactly when this will be and he's still give us his name is Allahu Allah then they are what does this with me How can I not do this for human beings, whatever they did, whatever they did they talk to you back like you they want to do they did that they did this doesn't matter how it's forgiven, they don't forgive you, you forgive them. And I always say this to myself. I am going to be standing in front of a lot of you will be standing in front of a lot. It's going to ask me one ID it's not gonna ask me what your things so what between you and the people forgiveness help people as much as you can without

00:57:11--> 00:57:25

expecting anything. And if they do it for you, they didn't do what they said. Exactly okay. They didn't say they go out and talk negative about you after we did all this good. It doesn't matter you're dealing with all without

00:57:26--> 00:57:53
