Smilla who loves cinema
and he was really woman, Loma Linda I am founder or founder of NECA semiology with dua Lamoni how to become an MLM company they have shown a single touch bar what do I mean legs from Manila and Avada in headaches and what happens
in the country will have to be shortly suddenly uncle only wandered off the family Sandy of poor Holly Welcome everyone. So good to be back. I hope you are okay, coming back here, which is Allah who come to the front, anybody who's 25 minutes, please on the floor. So everybody is going to come on the floor.
And we may need more chairs. We may need more chairs, just a gentle reminder for the children. You know, 12 and younger, please take them upstairs and take care of them is up and walking. So how glabrata Whitaker hound
it's always it's always
it's good to be back. That's number one. And number two is we always have to be so grateful for last pantalla because online courses that Karima because they have an issue online with someone she said there is an echo.
So I may have to lower it.
So we we get this technical problems are lost pantalla will make it easy. Always remember when I was power, Tyler, give us a break. Give us
a reason to not continue Alhamdulillah all the reasons are good is when you come back, especially when you come back to arriba. When you come back to something good, you will come back to something you missed. Number one, you need to be grateful because Allah subhanaw taala can stop it.
And I'm talking about anything, anything in the house is good you have anything that is bringing higher bringing goodness. And then for some reason it stopped. And the reason is good. And then Allah bring it back. The first thing you have to do is you have to be grateful. My thought I learned this actually, from one of my teachers for nine years never start something, especially when she did she didn't that she doesn't do it every week. But she does like courses and every time she starts by saying Alhamdulillah the Sahel and Anna has
always is the handle, that's all great. We're grateful for last pantalla that he made this possible, which taught me and teach should teach us all don't take anything for granted.
At all. You know, honestly you have a place where you can teach you have a place where you can learn a lot knows what will happen tomorrow. And we COVID Will taught us this. And I hope and I keep reminding about COVID Don't forget, because once we forget, we're not going to change and we're going to be the same people so if hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen hamdulillah he'll die May Allah subhanaw taala always make us worthy of being in a place to teach and to learn. Because that's a virtue. And this is exactly what I'm going to be talking about today. So for the series till we get to Ramadan and today is second of Rajab, so not much left from Oman and this is extremely important
that you probably all know this that's how we used to prepare for Ramadan for six months.
So the question comes to everybody what did you prepare
less than two months? What did you prepare
not only food we don't tell me the list of who I'm going to invite
Ramadan Allah did not create it for this. You have 11 months to enjoy yourself who to invite people to go and see people but not in Ramadan. So from now start to this, this is actually all this series is to reconnect with Allah subhanaw taala because if you're not connected with Allah subhanaw taala Ramadan will be a place I come here, I see people I enjoy, I pray, I eat I fast and I leave and nothing changed.
And back to square one, because I don't have the real relationship. The relationship is temporary. So we all need to do the following from today, two months that 100 long, two months is a lot of time 100 That you make
a promise if I want to use the word but I want don't want to use the word promise in case it's not going to happen. Just have the result of the Inma say to yourself the following and everybody I want this formula to be different
What will make the Milan different. This is different between each and every one because everybody is different. I want this to be different in two ways in how I am inside Ramadan. And then when I leave because if you are inside, you're going to do exactly the same
what you did last year, you will be the same when you leave.
You're going to be busy cooking, you're going to be busy doing whatever then gonna run come to Tarawa you will have of the tarawih. If you're not focused, you're going to be talking. And then you go home, you start watching this and watching that. And then they want and next thing is doing day 29. And nothing changed. And you're reading Quran, don't know what you're reading, but you're reading because it's Ramadan.
That shouldn't be the case. At least make from today, the hem melacha Allah make it the best ever. And if I die before on last pantalla, we'll see Ramadan, that Allah will give me that three word. And the best way, or the first step to get to where you want to be in Ramadan is to examine your relationship with Allah. And now I'm going to ask everybody, do you have a relationship with Allah? Show me hands?
And I'm sure everybody will say yes. So the next question, what is the relationship of Allah?
What does that mean?
Of course, everybody will say I have a relationship with Allah, I have a relationship with all of you. Is that true?
Yes, it is. Well, what kind of relationship?
So this is the sports thing when you come say you reconnect. And I always want somebody actually showed me this a while ago, and I was like, okay, but he connect
means you had a relationship. And for whatever the reason, that relationship either became weaker or completely disconnect. Why? How many of you, one, we had the wind last week or three days ago, and the Internet didn't work. And you had to reboot? Right? So you had an internet and the Internet was working, it was 5g, but then something happened, and you lost it. Now you need to reconnect. So the first step is, do you have a Wi Fi with a lost PAN card?
And if you all said yes, well, Illa Hill? How many G's?
How quick, when you download?
This is extremely important. I need to define it and then again, don't be don't look at this as like, Of course I have a relationship with Allah, each one of you don't think of somebody else, we have to examine it. So I can change it. And if it is great, if it's 5g, you're lucky put 5g to Ramadan, make it seven if there is something called Seven.
And if it is one, don't disappear. You need to sit down and say why it is one? No.
What did I do to make it one? And how am I going to make it five? The series is not going to tell you how to do it, the series is going to tell you if you really have a relationship with Allah, this is who you are. And I'm going to take you through nine weeks, every week, we're going to say you have a relationship with Allah. That's how it should be now telling me
and the first thing I'm going to start today is the basics.
To have a relationship with anyone what do you need? Number one, let's see if you're going to figure it out.
You need before that before love what is it?
You need to know them?
Am I going to have a relationship with somebody living in India
fright her name whatever, never seen her I have no idea of no contact? Well, I have a relationship. I have a relationship with everybody in India you're going to say what? So the first thing is you need to know
you need to know and I'm not going to talk about knowing Allah we covered this in the first lecture or second when we did the series about Muslims what we believe in the thing is what is knowledge?
What is normally knowledge what does it mean? I know you go in the Quran 41 places in the Quran. Allah says a number No.
And when you come to us most of it actually the highest number is in Fort Rucker.
So when you see a demo, and let's say it's what is your what is knowledge?
What is knowledge why you are here today?
Just Alchemilla it's beautiful to have all this people are why you are here today to learn what does it mean to log and why you need to learn all these questions. Number one, Allah subhanaw taala said this many times in the Quran.
You want to know Allah, you want to have a connection with Allah reconnect with Allah, I want to improve it. It will not happen and listen to what I'm saying. And I'm going to give you the proof of it. It will not happen period. Unless you have no knowledge.
It will never happen. It will be temporary.
you listen to a lecture you listen to a chill pill these days you listen to the clips, and you feel good and then you don't build on it and nothing happens.
Because that's what Allah says in surah twaddle international law homenaje body he
the people of knowledge are the only one here the innama the hustle when he when Allah subhanaw taala use this in the Quran, meaning only the following applies. Only the people of knowledge have the real or
ill Hashem is not fear only is fear on love. You know, when you love someone, and you're so afraid, you will lose them. And you're so afraid they will get upset with you. Or you will not make them happy or the harsh Yeah, it's not fear. So in the my actual law has been a big hit on ml, you want to know Allah to love Allah to have a connection with Allah starts learning. And I'm not talking about this 10 minutes, with the reels on Instagram, with the shorts on YouTube. Nobody run this way.
Nobody learned this way. I call it the fast food method. You know, the fast food method, you're hungry, you stopped at whatever place you like, you turn down the window, but you don't even move your hand, you just press the button. Right? Then you don't speak, you just say number one, number two, whatever the number. And then you drive, you don't drive we just put your feet with look how much effort you put. And then you don't even do anything, just put the phone pay. Next you get a bag, you put on the pole on the side, within five minutes, you're full, true or false. That's not knowledge.
That's not even information. That's why it's unhealthy.
Real knowledge, real knowledge, you really need to spend time
we spend all of us anybody who have a degree in this room. What ever the degree is. You didn't take it in five minutes on by listening to reels, or to the short ones, one hour these days. The social media team. We had a meeting recently in July and it's like this longer lectures the least are seen I said Yeah, because that's who we are these days.
We don't have time to learn yet. We want to be connected with Allah subhanaw taala and we want when we ask Allah to give us to give us immediately literally one of the most common questions I had in my tour in London is why am I dua is not answered?
The fact I'm asking this question tells me I don't know.
I don't know. I don't know much about dua period. And I think a lot is like me, I tell my son does something he doesn't throw it away or I tell my friend does something she doesn't try to sow a knowledge and humbler brand you're in a city full of knowledge.
And we need the group we all have right there is a twist every Masjid has whatever programs
why we are not there. Why we are not enrolled in this in that knowledge, the first step to connect with a mosque pinata. And the second thing Allah said your failure to lead in I'm assuming they are five landed in harmony with Adina who to follow her Nina Amendola, Kamala, you know, terrain model Rajat to people will be elevated the real believer, not the believer, you and me a shadow unlike the real believers, and those who have not
acknowledged and this Dean is amazingly and so
precious and so virtuous, it's looked at it, there is no book of test skier who does not start with the Keto moolah in the book of knowledge and the virtues of knowledge.
You know what people sometimes say to me, I was like, You know what, let's, let's give them food. I said, why is that because without food people will not come?
It's true. But it's salad.
Food brings me the words of Allah doesn't bring me
am I am I inventing something? We all need to reassess our not only relationship with Allah but what are we doing to make this relationship better and stronger and persistent?
For resistant at least there's a baseline that doesn't change and then it gets go a little bit uplift will be down humbler but this has to be
a base that doesn't change. Allah says the sort of zoom or polyester we
are the same. Those who know and those who doesn't. And look at us, you and me when we want to do anything in dunya and we do
With our Google, right and we do our search, what do you look for? What's the review? Right? When you buy something that reviews three, when you go to a physician who their rate is three, now?
Are they the same person who has five? Five stars versus person who has two? And that's what Allah subhanaw taala said, and you still we live in Ala Moana will live their lives. Are they the same? The people who know? And who doesn't know and knowledge here is only knowledge about Allah, knowledge of deen or knowledge of anything that will get you closer. I'll throw questions to you all today. Don't answer me this is you go home and answer. What are you doing on daily basis to learn?
And I'm talking about three learning again, not the five minutes daily.
You spend an hour, one hour from the 24th to learn about the Dean about a law about my life where I am going, where I'm going to end. But we spend hours and days about everything. And yet still we live in a Ala Moana, we live in Ireland and one of the reasons Allah said this, are they the same those who know and those who doesn't because how much they put to reach this and how much they didn't put and that's why they didn't get it.
And in May you read the law where this hadith when I learned it, this is when I decided I'm gonna study my god the love will be hiring you for Krakow 15
It's very beautiful, small Hadith, whosoever a lot once higher. We need to redefine what is higher is higher is goodness. If I tell you what is good, what are you going to tell me? Good career. I look good. Good family, right good house healthy 100 nap. But that's not in the sight of rasanya Santosa. And what's a lot torture? My URI de la Hobi hiring for lack of a gain on Allah's pantalla what's good for you. He will teach you. And sometimes I say what did I do that he didn't teach me? Or he took it away from me? Versus we all look at it good.
Everything else and I spent time and I put up for it and I fight and I lose sleep because I didn't get it? Or maybe I will not. But what do I do for D My URI the luck will be hired. You're 14 or 15? How many of you want to go to Jana? I need to see hands.
Is there even a doubt right? Why you're asking this plane? What is the path for Diana
and I use the word path because the hadith is path.
Man Salah Caparica Altemus will be here, Elma.
SallAllahu Lagu B are 100 Jana, whosoever and this is all of us.
And this is the general because the way of Rosaria Sato Sinha phrase, the Hadith telling you this is for general people. This is not for scholars, because he said men silica body on silica is you are looking, you took a path and you're looking in the path Am I in the right path? Should I take right Should I take left? I'm not finding the final of his Mansilla coppery yelled at me. So you'll tell me so is like somebody blind and touching. You're looking for it.
You didn't learn he didn't say learn? He said you're looking for the D for the knowledge. Looking for the knowledge. sal Allahu Allahu be because of this path. The path of Jannah becomes easy.
Because of your taking the path you didn't finish yet. And he didn't say what path
but the path of knowledge. sal Allahu Allah Who will be the fact you left home today. You drove or these people all over the world they came they are online, they put the this is all path.
So I need you to like expand your knowledge path is when you're looking for it. And you take the initiative you drive to another must do 20 minutes an hour. You took a plane to go to a conference. That's all politics, that's all path.
But that path cannot be only in December. You know, one of the things I was very surprised here. I was like in the summer all the classes stops. I say why
and evocation from knowledge.
On the contrary,
in the summer we should have more because now we are less busy. I was shocked when people told me this. Oh, it's the winter break. I said break from it.
Break from my pathogen.
Break for my knowledge about Alaska.
like as if I spent 24/7 alarm I need to breathe. Oh yeah one hour a week
honestly I was shocked we've never done it before and I didn't come from I came just from Midwest but but this is what needs for us to change is the way we think the way we look
I don't stop eating and drinking because it's somewhere in fact I eat more
right I don't stop enjoying because it's a break. Why do I break from knowledge
and I'm struggling and you're struggling and we barely can do what we want to do. So this path is continuous when Celica reconnected me Serbia,
you stop you take a break, you decide you, you drop out you This is too hard, whatever, then the path of Jana took a detour
and nobody is losers. When I tell people I was like, You know what, nobody will lose except to me. I decided to drop, okay, maybe Allah looked at me and says, You know what, she doesn't work. It doesn't qualify for it. And I don't want that.
So Mansilla coppery Anil temiz will be here in my Sahel Allahu La who will be 30 in Germany, one of the beautiful comments I read here, it says a lush panna cotta Allah Subhanallah This is May Allah forgive me before anyone created us and He created with us to us or in us all what we need to learn
true or false? Try Allahu Allah Harajuku member Tony on Mahatma come what? Latta Allah Munna Sha. Allah took you out of the belly of your mouth, you all have seen babies and he specifically said Latta, Allah Munna, Shreya you know, nothing, does the baby know anything. We would get so surprised. And I'm sure you all have seen it immediately after delivery. If you put the baby on the breast and the baby Subhanallah start breastfeeding. You say your loss of hammock when Halima Wanda who taught him that because he or she doesn't have the knowledge. And then we're Johanna nakoma sama whenever surah Allah fader these are what he gave us, gave you hearing, Sama will have a surah to
see while a fader lafrieda is not the hearts it's the heart that you contemplate with the hearts that you learn with. He gave it to me.
I can't stand in front of Allah says Allah Allah I couldn't see even these days there's a brown your Allah I didn't hear I do but even those who doesn't hear there is now facilities for them. And I am hamdulillah and we are all saying we're not insane. What How can I tell him? That's why how did they ended this?
Lana Nana competence guru. So you are grateful.
And the way I am grateful is to use what Allah gave me and the way that pleases. So if you give me now a glass of water, you put it next to me. And I say thank you. I say Giselle killer. Okay, next thing I drop it, I don't like it. I'm not grateful to you.
I'm claiming I just said it. So I can't stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala. And I said, Well, Allah, Allah, I couldn't. It didn't work. And he's and he doesn't. Why? What was missing?
What was missing? can treat? Can't hear? Can't understand? Don't you have all the facilities you need? Don't you have the time? Why didn't you do it? And I'm not talking about memorizing the Quran or doing this or the talking about learning. Learning, we all have hobbies, and we want to spend time doing this and doing that beautiful, but do I have a grand a day the
time to learn about him? Subhana
whether it's through the Quran, whether it is through a book, we forgot how books are read these days. You wanted again the cook one or soiree salatu salam said the beautiful Hadith and this actually Hadith it needs to make you on an I just gonna say the rephrase it. He said nothing in my bathroom you Allah will be he will master the parable of what Allah sent me with and you meaning you're talking to Sahaba and let's see who we are. And he gave three example examples of three groups for you. What he sent him with his like crane. So this is pure
pure I just I just tested is not a test but I just
the students in the Euro phonology on on Sunday, I actually quizzed
I'm a nobody and I said what is the only thing that is 100% halal?
There is no question it is not halal,
the rainwater before it hits the ground because once it hits the the ground you're going to go through all the rulings the point so he was saying what was sent me with this the Quran and the Sunnah the teaching or is exactly like the rain, okay? And the rain will hit the ground. And he said the ground would be three types. You say to yourself who you are, they'll say to me, who am I like you?
And he said, Catherine peon. So the human beings Why'd they will like this land. One land, took it took the rain captured, and the the sand or the soil brought all the vegetations and people learn and people ate and benefited. That's the first one. Second one. We took it, but nothing comes but kept it
kept the water. So people came and drank from it, but nothing else came.
Third one neither accepted
Which one you are?
Which one you are? Don't answer me. This is for you. These are questions for you, between you and Allah subhanaw taala nobody needs to know who I am. I don't have to make a public statement about this. He knows Are you a person to even number one? Did I even took the rain?
Do I even see what Allah subhanaw taala sent me through the Quran and Sunnah as rain as my life. Do I see that?
So that's number 1am. I, the person who took it, swallow it, enjoyed it, it shows up on me. This is the idea when when you get the fruits and the vegetables, the flowers is that means you took it and shows on you.
And then you benefit the other. Hi, number one. Number two, nothing is showing on me. Nothing is showing going in but I'm teaching it but I didn't benefit. May Allah forgive me. Number one.
Whether you are a Quran teacher, whether you give halacha whether you teach your children, that's a typical example, when you teach and you don't practice. And it doesn't bring fruits, anybody younger, old, even if you are 12 year old teaching your younger brother or sister how to read the Quran, this is all teaching. And the third one neither they learned nor that nor do they benefit other people. Those are the worse.
Don't you be all of you, young and old, a person who somebody will learn something from you. That is bad.
And this will continue
don't you be that person ask a loss punter not to make you that person.
Subhanallah Don't be anyone that people sometimes not the you don't know, they look at you. You don't know that.
And they look at you and says I want to be Oh, I love her hair. I want to be like, I want to have a hair like her done. Anybody will learn from this, let alone if you are on the internet or your post, or you share and all these. Tell yourself, ask Allah begin to make you that land that accepted
and then benefit herself and then benefit the others without a single word.
Without a single word people can benefit from you. And then people give lectures and talks
about a mentor.
Knowledge is absolutely a virtue and one of the things here they said it is one of the closest way to connect to Allah.
I want you to try this. Anytime you're upset you're you don't feel well. You're sad. You're bored.
Pick a hadith for us. I'm not gonna say Quran gonna tell me I don't understand it all I need Okay, let's take a hadith of Roswaal you Santosa spent 30 minutes reading English or Arabic. It's easier to understand and tell me after 30 minutes how you will feel
you're not answering me because you haven't tried it. Try it daily.
Daily. It should be a sunnah in our homes.
Honestly, to every day, a word of rasaan Hassan Hassan mentioned in that house.
You know what I worry about 50 years from now, what is going to happen?
From now the third, third and the fourth generations if my children now don't know about Rasul Allah Sato son their grandchildren will know.
And life you see how it's changing and changing,
resuscitate knowledge in the homes? Don't blame messages you don't blame institutes? Why not in the house first?
you learn with your children what is wrong with that? I don't know. Let's let's, if they say no Omar used to walk in the street and if you see one of the Sahaba says, Tell enough called Allah Azza. And I was like, let's go and have a coffee. We all do that. He says to whoever he says, Come on in it's gone. Remember Allah for an hour. When was the last time you said that?
Knowledge look at it absolutely different.
Save now whether massaman is
Sahabi and he said, You want me to tell you the first thing the first knowledge will be left from people's from the people. The first knowledge what do you think the first knowledge will be lifted from people?
He said the whole show of Asana
that you are sure of Asana that you feel you're in Salah you're you're you're feeling it you're talking to Allah nothing outside is distracting you know thoughts inside he said the first thing when people change the whole show this is our biggest problem most common question you get is How do I get for sure on Salah Subhanallah
see now what are the new double he has a famous saying about elite
look and it's amazing and I when I was reading it and I was just saying the fact he's saying this tells you how much he knew and he said talamona
learn knowledge play Why yes he
he said fit in I'm just gonna do this what y'all humbled to Hello moolah.
And all of you say this to yourself any don't think mothers don't say Okay, I'm gonna go home. I'm gonna tell my children don't do this. Say to yourself first.
Say it to yourself. And each one of you young and old don't want to talk to somebody else say to yourself, let me go and start the journey from today. Second of all job to the day or from Yvonne. I am going to everyday learn. Okay, why number one to have pneumonia in the in the Aluma Hola, hola. Harsha. The fact that you every day, sit and read something, learn something, review something all these notes. You're right. When was the last time you reviewed? Why this is a sign you love and afraid of Allah subhana INETA Aluma hola Hashem. If you're doing it for the sake of Allah, that's a sign your love Allah and you aren't afraid of the combo. I called for in Italian Uma. Hola, hacia.
Now second one, who wants to spend time why books read books who go on the website to do this in Nevada, Hawaii bad. The fact you're looking for it is an act of worship.
We don't look at knowledge this way. You are you're sitting on in whatever you are sitting in, then you're turning on your computer. And then you're looking at the site and then you didn't find it, or the word. I spelled it wrong. And all this this process, Allah who I'm looking for it, or you text your friend, when was that? What did she say? This is act of worship.
This is one time stamp.
One timestamp. And we look at worship as one. praying, fasting, what to do or have a job that job? Which is humbling. Absolutely. But that's not it. That's it.
So somebody cannot pretend you can do anything else. Yep. tadoba who a bad one. Mudaraba to Hooters be the fact you're sitting here. And I am together where we are learning something. You're glorifying God last Panther. You're glorifying Allah subhanaw taala when bath 100 Jihad looking for it?
Where will I Where is the best place I'm going to learn how to understand the Quran says the common city this chip. So don't worry. There's a chip I can Yeah, come on in. Well, that's the one who Jihad when you look for a chip you tell your friend while
you're reading it, you're reading this book. What is this book says oh, it's amazing book. Okay, where will I find the books? Let's go on Amazon. When you go on Amazon. That isn't your textbook. I don't know. You keep looking. That's act of jihad struggle but like the man goes for fight.
What are the words I will get? What I Lima who
Himalaya along with Masada, the mandala Masada, when you teach it to someone else, it's an act of charity.
Anything again, don't think of you it's something huge, big anything, sometimes will only be Allah on my last trip. Some of the questions I got, I was like, yeah, they are simple. But that tells you people wants to learn simple, simple questions.
Simple, nothing is coming to my mind now, but it sometimes is like you think these are basics, some people don't even know the basics. We need whatever, you know, say it to somebody.
And we'll do holy ally here. CORBA when you pick up people who are really serious, and you spend your time with them specifically, this is an app will get you close to Allah, how to reconnect to the last pantile. So your friends and you know, one of your friends is really good. She has a beautiful voice, beautiful voice.
And you know how to read Quran, but your voice is not the best teacher.
Because she will do it much nicer. And she will have much more impact than other people. But Lulea when somebody is quiet, it has all the ingredients to become something spend time on them.
These last two, probably nobody will understand the please forgive me if I say this whole initial Phil wonder when you're alone? What's going to make you feel solace and happy?
when you're alone, what do you do?
Number one, we're never alone. Because there's always phone next to us.
Right? And what we're going to do, we're going to go from one website to the other one social media to the other.
But try to turn it off
completely. Believe me, nobody will die. I tried it. Life didn't change a minute, everything is the same.
And I didn't turn it off for an hour or two.
So try to sit it alone, turn off the TV, turn on everything that distracts you. And after 510 minutes, you're going to be bored or you're going to feel very uncomfortable because we're not comfortable being alone. By nature, human insan the nature of the why we are called in some human from one of the routes is ons because by nature we want to be with people. So there's nothing wrong with that. But let's try without one a book be a book that teaches you especially about along get close to Allah, let's make you feel better. You know, people that like that,
you know, people my neighbor, view non Muslim.
She used to arts eight o'clock and I was like, What are you doing? I can say her name is public. And I was like, What are you doing? He said that says, I pick up the book and I am now enjoying it.
So well anyway, so Phil wondered when you will learn even it's a verse of the Quran or the Hadith of Rasul, also story are the same. And you're thinking, sit down and think. Sit down and take the time we're running. You know, what is the nickname of this day and age? Does anybody know?

You know, when you put the date and then drink the water. You say ah, you know this feeling all of you, the person who have never fasted don't know what you're talking about. What is she saying?
The same thing what I'm saying to you now because I see your faces.
tried this coming weekend. One, our young and old. Turn off all the distractions
and take something about Allah to learn about him. What about the Rasul alayhi salatu salam.
The reason I'm focusing on knowledge before we start the next one, which is I'm going to give the thought leader topics to the day. I'm not going to even tell you what I'm going to talk about for the next time
Snicket excitement. That is the only way. The only way you know Allah, you get close to you feel it. You love him you trust Him you rely on him is by knowing him.
Knowing Him, we don't know. We don't know people very well. We know you but when I'm not, I don't know you well, you will know him well. When you number one Ask.
Ask Him to show you who is he in your language in your actual age at your where are you in life? And the more you know about Allah subhanaw taala things completely change. And that's what one of the things I'm gonna read. For you. The knowledge is the only way you know Allah, the only way you worship Allah, the only way you remember him, the only way you will single him in the act of worship by knowledge that people get close to Allah subhanaw taala you all know wasent Arani actually, namaz. I wasn't thinking of Orissa colony.
I think it was an imam who they asked him and they said,
I think it's a mammoth cover. mouthful. Kerkini they said he doesn't have a lot of knowledge. Now people sometimes put people down. So they were saying it's, I think to the Imam Muhammad. And he said, Look at his relationship with Allah and His a badder than his knowledge is way more than everybody including me.
You know, you know, not by how much you will know or speak or memorize is, who you are, when you are with Allah and
when you're in that place in the night on that surgery on that Masala or when you are in need, especially the youth when you're grieving in need. And sometimes I love it when I hear it from the youth as well, like they know what God will be. But it comes down to life on their heart. I was like I enjoy that like say it again. That moment you know
that moment you know Allah because you said it in a way that somebody knows who's Allah.
This only comes again by knowing can subhanho wa Taala
Allah Spano Rasul Allah Salatu Salam o, actually, this is a nice one is knowledge is basically the again the guide. What did the Roswaal resort or some left for us all the prophets? Did they leave homes? Did they leave fortune? Did they leave stocks? Did they leave bank account? Or did they left for us? Knowledge target will MBI recall. So that's what
profits leave. And it is the life of the heart.
I have to talk about hearts when we talk about it. Your heart will not live the way you a lot wanted me to live and the way you want to live. Unless you know him. No, K, n o w you have to know Him. And you have to look at the way to know him as something virtual was worth my time. We use this word very common these days. It doesn't worth my time.
What I'm gonna get out of it. This is this is a day and age language. Right? Don't invest in this stock. It doesn't have a good return. That's another thing. Don't buy this property in this area because it's probably not gonna appreciate. That's the word the language is perfect. There's nothing wrong with that. Bring this and look at your IRA and my IRA. What will appreciate
which stocks it will brings 100% return if not 200% return its knowledge Hayato clue when the hearts are live. And it is the joy of the soul. Our Souls is drying as human actually is drying you look at I don't know how many of you watch or see the news or read the news every day. How many of you do that on daily basis?
Show me hands
reading you have no idea what happens in the world.
Wow, that's another huge problem.
Just five minutes check the news.
I'll share this story with you may Allah give identity for DOS. I have not seen her in a while was our Sierra teacher. She's a woman from Medina, full of knowledge was an exam I remember very well. These days. Of course there was papers and there's nothing and the exams were hard. And it's not false. True and False. It's it's rare, right?
Dong summarize whatever. So she gave us the papers I remember when you will end of the semester, and she said don't turn it on, put it here. Okay? And we normally teach you do Bismillah, Taka, Nan. And she said, What is the news?
What's on the news today?
Literally, this is exactly how you see my face. And she looked at us and says, and you want to read our higher Tomas pantile. What's called people to align, you don't know what's going on in the world who's gonna listen to you?
Was one of the biggest lessons I learned way more than test.
You want to be influential. You want people to listen to you, you need to know what's going on around you. So Subhanallah you have to absolutely listen, you don't have to spend hours on the news, but you need to know what is going on. And that also, by the way, is knowledge and knowledge. Look at people who knows when they speak and look at the people who don't know when they speak, they don't have knowledge and look at the difference you want to impact people is you have to give them something worthy and that comes with knowledge.
And then I'm going to end up with this, the num the oily DUA and memorize this and tell me if I'm wrong. If there's any happy bar in this room, and you think I'm wrong, I am more than happy to say I'm wrong. The only place or the only subject in the Quran when Allah subhanaw taala says give me more.
Give me more. He told her suit always thought was gonna tell me make this job. So I give you more or asked me to give you more. We read
about knowledge of rugby Sydney enema.
What cooler rugby is it me and my Ya Allah. He's teaching him Allah seeking Rasul Allah is auto setup, say, you're lucky to be more knowledge.
Give me more knowledge. He didn't say give me more children. He didn't give. He didn't say give me more money and give me more cars, give me more of this, none of that, because this comes and goes, we'll call Rob visit me it might give me more knowledge.
And again, the knowledge is that origin will bring you close to Allah, you will not change. And I will say this to everybody. Young and old, you will not change, you will not get close to Allah, all the bad things that are habits that you hate, and you really want to change. And we all have that for humans, it will not change without knowledge, all the things good that you see other people are doing and you want to be like them, it will not work without knowledge, it will not. And if anybody else have done it a different way, tell me
the only way gets you close to Allah to do the good things to do what pleases him to stay away from all the temptations around us, there is watts, or loads as they say in England, of it, the only way you will stay strong, you will be firm, you will be able to be so proud who you are, who Allah created you is by knowledge.
Otherwise, honestly, the path is very difficult. It's becoming every day is becoming more difficult, more and more and more difficult. But when I know him, and I want to learn about and I start my reconnect and if I didn't have any connection, you know what, register for connection, go and sign in for whatever company but start the process and start the process by learning. And Allah called the Quran Al Kitab what is our Kitab is a book and what does book do? Teach knowledge. The book doesn't know you don't call a book. Usually book has information then you define it. So you know what? It's not a very good knowledge. This is a great knowledge. Daddy Kalki taboo. Now you Buffy
who Dunlin. This is the book. No doubt. I can tell you this statement how many non Muslims became Muslim when they read it.
Daddy Calcutta This is the book No doubt, guidance to those who know Him, love Him and they are aware of him. And when you open the Quran and nothing happens, then the problem is not the Quran. The problem is the receiver that's what I say to myself. It's the same it's the same look that may say normal Muslim,
why is not moving to me? Because it is me. So may Allah subhanaw taala make us all the people of knowledge we are most punked out always give us the resolve the human the desire, like I spend hours on a phone or hours studying other things. He gives me this desire to read and to learn and to enjoy and start not only you are a student but start classes start starts to
Cheap people younger or doesn't matter. Anyone you travel this is the beauty of traveling is you see things can't believe it. You see things you see people are working for a lot. There's a lot of hierarchy. My last trip I, when I put my son when I was in the plane coming back, and I was like, You know what, you're alive with everything. We are hearing everything we are seeing a lot of hearing. Still in this life. I can tell you what I saw, literally a woman I'm talking about woman, young and young and old. Young Young people works for a lot. And they and they live in the Western Isles. So there is hey we all have him will not be here. If you didn't want to learn nobody giving
you a penny for coming here on the contrary, but humbler buying but you need to put the effort. Put the effort, tell Allah He was tell Allah I have not done enough but you are generous. That's what I always thought was Pantone. Allah I don't want I don't deserve anything you gave me. But you're generous. I don't deserve to see I don't deserve to heal. There's much more better people than me but you're generous and helped me to get close to neurobion Subhana Kilimo behind the cash I don't like a stockbroker work today. So Allah Allah say no Mohammed, Allah, it was hybrid scheme and Katya. Any questions? We still have about six minutes, five minutes.
Any questions, any comments? What did you do in the vacation? And the break?
