Basically when we sin when we disobey Allah and I want every one of you just think of today just think of today. What did you
What sin you have done? Don't tell me tell yourself because ALLAH knows and the angels wrote it anyway. But the point is, remember the poem that I shared with you from day one, which is right to do, but to mutual Palooza, I came to know that sins were killed the heart, or highroller NFC. calci. Anwar, while we were
while you read the village manual, and the more you become addicted to a sin, you become addicted for hire. Or third cause the movie hire tool Caribbean, this is exactly the series. It's actually where the series title came from. And when you stay away from sins, your hearts will be lying. We'll be living will be life and Ohio enough CCAFs Yanmar the best thing you do for your knifes for your progress for your future for your Ohana you use all the words you want is to go against your naps wherever your naps once you say no. So we said what is the problem within the first week we went through what is sins and then we went into the effects of sins. Today until next week, and the week
after of Allah give us live? We're going to take the following. How many of you and I'm going to before I tell you the title? How many of you will say that I and I want to see hands don't worry, it's not showing?
How many of you can say with so much confidence I do have a relationship with Allah.
I have a relationship with Allah.
I didn't say how good bad I said the relationship. Yeah, and you command right everybody has a relationship with Allah. How many of you in this room can say confidently I am the my relationship with Allah to the to the best that Allah wants me to be not what you think what he wants. And I didn't use a word that that I'm going to use in a second. That's it. You know what my relationship with Allah, I make a dua to Allah it happens on the moment.
Allah wants me to do something, I'm doing it on the spot. It doesn't matter what it is. I like it. I don't like it. People love it. People told me no, doesn't matter. Allah said so how many can say this? handler? No wonder. Right? So the question comes in, why not?
And this is related to the topic. Why not? Why it is so hard for me to obey Allah. Let's be all very honest. And is it easy to obey Allah? subhanaw taala? No. Why is it easy in every minute in every breath and every day I do exactly what he wants me know why.
And remember, last week, we said Allah created us when the baby comes out pure, the heart is pure. What happens? This is a title title. Every time I a new sin, my relationship with Allah becomes weaker.
And this is not my words. Every time I do something he doesn't want he doesn't like my relationship with him gets weaker and weaker.
Think of it this way. And anytime you think of it in the dunya way, in your life, it will be much easier you have someone you love a friend, right and you really had a very good relationship one does this relationship change?
One does this relationship change and the person with you disappoint you right? Something happens one time Okay second time okay, third time that's it.
There's so many other people I can have fun be friends with. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't give up on us willingly. I'll hand otherwise will not be in this room.
But the relationship we can from my side. He doesn't push me away. I move away because the reasons I have or he gives me to get close to him is being removed. And I'll share this with you. And I'm going to start with a hadith. If you know the Hadith you know why
Since you will does this, and I'm sure all of you at least know the meaning of the study, and it is a long one, it starts by the following. So he puts Allah Subhana Allah says, Man addley what he and I are going to do will help. Whomsoever, and this applies to all of us declare war against our D, our li of Allah subhanaw. Taala is a person who is very close to Allah.
You and me probably don't know most of the Zodiac because they don't talk about themselves.
And they don't brag about what they do. And you probably see them and you don't even pay attention to them. But these people have this special relationship with Allah. So Allah says, Whosoever declare war on this, so be careful when you attack righteous people and Imam squalor. Somebody who calls to Allah you don't know what they have with Allah. Because you do this and Allah will declare war not me or you, Allah who will declare war when Allah declare war, what's going to happen? So, I have no idea when other
than to who will
then comes to the point
where Madhava eladia Abdi we have a master actually nothing will bring my server to you and me. Now Allah has saying is not the words of philosophy is his words but this is from Allah the ranking and Allah say nothing, nothing will get you close to Allah. Nothing Abdi my sermon, nothing will bring you close to me. Other than what I made obligations and obligations you all don't only think of obligation, as I have said many times as Salah and so Yama, Hydra, but think of all the obligations, but that's not going to make you close to Allah, this is gonna get you put you on the road, but you're not there yet.
Because it's a process when I as Allah Abdi Yetta karamo, irrigate, this is the word and he, my servant will continue to get close to me. Pay attention to the word continue. What does it mean? It's not only in Ramadan only when I'm in the masjid on Tuesday because there's a class and I pray with a drummer that I'm close to on what he has done for those of you who know r&b is fairly normal Bara it's a verb, it's that means now and the future is a process continuously my servant will come close to me how?
By doing the excellence
voluntary benowa thing and continuously then how do you know you are overly of Allah? I can claim whatever I can claim and your claim and you say well people will believe you. These are the signs Hatter of a boom. Allah will love you.
How do I know Allah loves me while he gives me dunya? Absolutely not. Absolutely not be very careful. And this is for the youth before the adult and the adult before they will be so worried and scared if I'm going to use this word, when I am disobeying Allah and he still gives me
and you this quest, this always we say this to everybody you say look at these people around us. They don't even believe in Allah and they have all the dunya Well, good luck because that's what they have only here.
And for us Muslims the more I disobey Allah and the more he gave it to me because he's going to take me suddenly and I shared the verse with you last week if you remember, Salah is an update of my servant continuously by doing the extra I will love him what is the sign
and this everybody needs to learn this
either when I love when Allah loves you
come to some of the ladies smile when I became his hearing was horrible let let the opposite will be and I become his eyesight where the whole Latvia will play she will be her I become his hand Your hand and I'll explain it in a second. But it is WT MC we have. This is the first thing
what does it mean? Allah becomes my healing? What does that mean? Can anyone tell him
you cannot listen to what I'm saying. You cannot listen to anything that he does not like because you're not listening. He is making you listen. Don't tell me you listen to backbiting and you're part of it and you tell me I'm already have I'm not You're not
what I'm listening to music or I'm listening to her arm on listening to this same thing applies to the eye. What you see what you read. And then same thing what do you do with this? What do you do with your legs? Where do you go?
Where do you go which group which which
invitations which wedding which which which which? So the first thing is you start hating since that's where it is related.
you can do it. I don't know if you have seen these people these people literally I have met. It's like I can't I just can't. It's not like your struggle one day I do it one day I don't want to underneath try to find excuses. They can't. They can't look at them. They just can't. Their eyes right away go somewhere else. Same thing with the US. So that's the first and the truth. This is absolutely because Allah He used it in a way of absolute confirmation and affirmation will let you send an email to you in well, let me start I need our reason. If he or she asked me. I am giving it in those of you know r&b You know the word that the tools used for LA or Atlanta Lammott. Okay,
denote Tokyo two tools to affirm. Don't you have a doubt? You ask me? I'll give it to you. Well, in that start any level either No, when I ask Allah to protect me, I will.
That's the worry of Allah.
Sins now you know the relationship.
There is no relationship with Allah, if I am constantly disobeying Him, literally what I am doing, I am cutting this relationship. I am doing it he never give up on me, by the way. At all you need all to know this doesn't matter what you did. Doesn't matter what sins you have done, you know, the 99 the person who killed 99 You know, the famous Hadith, the man who killed 99 souls 99 people. And he came to a righteous man taking from him and advice. Do you think I have hope? I killed 99 People do I have oh, and he said no. So we killed him.
And now they became 100.
And then he saw somebody and that person said, Leave, leave this place. That's actually a lot of lessons from this hadith is number one reason we disobey Allah is our environment. That's why he told him Leave, leave. So he left. We said go to the other city, you will be much better. When he died in the middle.
He didn't get the and the angels disputed. They argued. Where do we get him.
And Allah said, measure, if he was closer to the city he loved is a sinner. And if he was closer, there's a city he was going to then his repentance is accepted. And guess what Anwar did, that's why I was telling you Allah will never give up on Allah change the earth and Allah escapable and he moved to the earth to be closer to him.
So Allah never gives up on us but we give up on ourselves. And please forgive me, we abuse I say this to myself. Abuse, the fact that Allah is forgiving.
Am I right?
Am I right? Think of it with me if I am not pleased. Don't we keep saying Allah Azza for Rohingya? Of course Allah is Allah for Rahim who can change that? Who can even deny that or isn't from the whole social neither?
Isn't Allah also has severe punishment? Why do I remember only this side?
My yo en la que la ma configure Vasudevan public no Bacara do ma theoretically NASA alguma him or Rebecca Shadi your iPod, we will tell you last Pandora saying this story is one so I will tell you what we tell people, the messengers before you, your Lord would have a lot of forgiveness, in spite of people are doing wrong things but also your Lord is a severe punishment. So sins will gradually weaken my relationship with Allah and every sin will produce another sin. Every sin will produce an another sins and also it is not to say that I'm sending this beautiful Hadith and this you all feel it is one of the most common questions I get is this one is he said in Imana that you have actually
had the company man
and he man yo yo, la, la Kofi JioFi Adhikam. Come if Lucasfilm Eman phase will get weaker and old.
In the heart, in your hearts, just like this. The dress gets old. You know when when you keep washing it and ironing, washing ironing at one point is very old army that no one and he said faith is the same. It's old, weak. And what he said first Allahu Taala and you didn't even have to ask Allah
ought to renew faith in your hearts
We don't make it do out for this do we? Do we make your heart for our iman? Do we make dua for our relationship with Allah? How many of you say yes and show me hands that's your Allah keep me strong yeah Allah keep me close to your lung other than give me Jana but I'm talking about the personal relationship with Allah if you don't handle if you don't start so that's what he's saying. What makes my Eman weak now connected all together what we can my EMA
sins Absolutely. So here you go sins weakens my Iman if my Eman is weak, my relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is weak as you all know this.
And also adding of salatu salam to one of the Hadith which you also know and you wonder why? What is the most common dua of Rasul Allah Serratos
let's see how much you
turn it's another word exempt yarmulke label colubrid with LB and Edina all yoo hoo turns to the hearts. What does that turns the heartbeat? I change in the morning I wake up Wow. I woke up before hydron I did my beautiful ledger. I did my zikr Iris Quran done I'm going to Junior.
Then I go in lifestyles, I go to work, I go to college, I go wherever I go out. And then next thing Don't tell me what you did. I don't want to know. And you say to yourself, Is that the same person?
Is that the same person? Is that like two personalities? And that's what happens up and down. And the DUA is yarmulke liberal Kulu that's the most common supplication. Hindi Danny salatu salam, O you who turn the hearts, keep my heart steadfast. I don't want this. See. So I call it up and down. I want to be my heart. Don't you want your heart to be like Milan all the time?
Right, running after? After, after I show running. Right? And you're here for two hours, at 10 o'clock in the summer that are we now here? And when he finished I was like, why did he finish? And then I go home and I'm full of energy. What happens then? Up and down. So always make dua even when you sin. That's the reason my heart I sing because my heart changed.
Right? So I used salatu salam says there's a lot of yards here.
Every time I sin, I want you to answer who did I obey? And who did I disobey?
Let's see the young. When I sin, who did I obey? No. Are you young? Are you young?
You're young, but they are youth?
Who did I disobey? Or who did I obey? When I sinned? When I miss my father, and I didn't do my solder, when I said this word, who did I obey? I want to hear it.
This is the triangle I want you to remember.
It is me. You put it wherever but definitely Allah is here. So there is Allah here.
And this is me. And this relationship.
The closer the shorter, the straight line, the closer I am, the more obedient I am, the happier I am to never know this. The closer you are to Allah, the happier you are, regardless what your wife is, the further you are from Allah, the miserable you are, the more miserable you are, regardless of what your life is. In case you wonder why all these celebrities, they have everything in life and then they commit suicide.
Isn't that amazing? Everything millions, because they are far from Allah. And this people who are very close to Allah, and they have nothing and they're very happy. Let's smile. Restore as the Arabic word hamdulillah everything is good, perfect. I don't need anything also grumpy.
So here you go. This is triangle A to Allah subhanaw taala it's me here and who's here?
And it's not one there's not one shape on Shelby ensue in June. He has army.
Absolutely Shayateen Lindsey will join Allah Selatan the Quran. He has army and he sent the army every morning.
Each one what's your weakness? What can work on you may not work on me and my may what may work on me not work on you. So Shavon Allah says, so the Consolata Nissa e at all and uni Isla, you know
So what you're doing Nicola che Aparna Maria they call but cursed Shavon what does he do Lana? Hola Hola Kirsten and he became jealous from you and me and he said what odd let them lemon Eva you can also even more frugal every one of your servants I will have a share from them
everyone that's what it is a sort of nice he's talking to Allah wa ala let decadent eliminate bad you can also even muffle every one of your sermon, I will have share of them. Can you tell me Trayvon doesn't have a shirt on you? Or me?
You know what, what it means when Trayvon has a shear he has an influence as part of you
as your beauty and he works on that as your education he works in that works on something Allah gave you to disobey Allah
this is what he said
why don't we learn No, I'm gonna make them go astray. Now look at the next one. This is going to be very familiar. Well there are more unknown and I am going to order them
order them something new you hear it it's okay don't do it. It's okay. I didn't mean it. I said something is right but I was so upset Allah for him he ordered you to say something that is not pleasing to Allah long run now. And then he said for you but Hakuna Adana, Al Anon, they're going to be cutting the ears of the cattles as something they used to do before and then but I'm running down for a year and a half Allah I'm going to order them and they will change the way they look.
They change the way they look. You know what I say to people when they tell me is all this you know what I'm talking about is haram.
And I don't use the word haram
you know when I say so you don't like the way Allah created you.
Why do you want to change?
The perfect the best created you in the best way? Didn't you say that? Don't you read Quran? Allah Allah Allah Allah in Santa Piazza Anita own we have created the human being in the best form. Why do you change? Why do you make this bigger with the smaller this without why you're not happy with the way he created you? Don't look at it other than you're really remember that triangle, your relationship with Allah. And that's how shaitan comes in works. And every time I do something that I disobey Allah, this becomes further the triangle becomes this very long with this becomes very short, very close.
And don't blame anyone while she made me do it. What Why didn't you say no? Aren't you educated? Don't you know? And we are very good and doing what?
blaming everybody else except us. So you need to know that shape on standing from morning to evening. Want me to disobey Allah and the further I disobey, the more I disobey Allah subhanaw taala the further I am from Allah, the further I am from Allah, the more I disobey almost Pantheon, it's a circle becomes a sort of circuit, if you want to use
Allah subhanaw taala said, this is I'm gonna read it because this is from
and this is how I was talking to you and me. He said,
Allah told his servants, you and me who denied you by the law.
I have honored your father,
and I raised his status. While I could Kolomna bunny Adam, we have elevated the status of any ad. And I prefer the Adam over any everything else I created. We are the best of the creation of Allah, true or false? We're better than everything else Allah created. Why? Why? Because Allah decided he could have made any of other creation better than us. But that's what he decided. Then he says Allah, I ordered my angels to prostrate to him as a sign of honor to Adam, and they obeyed we accept my enemy and his enemy Shavon now look at this, this is Allah saying, literally give me your hearts. So how could you take him?
How could you take him and his offsprings as allies and beside him?
I honored you. I asked the angels to prostrate to you. And the one who said no, you go and become his friend. And stay away from this is what Allah say
Subhan Allah while he is your enemy,
you have followed my enemy after I had commanded you to take him as your enemy. You know, this is all still Allah sings, you know that whoever befriends the enemy of the king, who is the king.
Whoever befriend the enemy of the king is also considered the enemy of the king.
We know what we say in the Arabic language.
If you are the enemy of my friend, you are my enemy. Don't we say that? Right? So Allah has saying, You took my enemy Shavon as your friend than reality you're taking me Allah as as an enemy.
For love and obedience are the I love the statement. And this applies to our relationship even between each other, for love and obedience cannot feel filled, except by being or showing animosity against my enemies. And by joining my followers don't we say that you're either with me
and now I'm it's not about me and you disagree. This is a line shape on
you we I am you need to decide
who I am going to take.
As my companion for our to my day, even when I am alone. There is only two choices there's no third. It's either him
or Allah, which one you want from this.
Allah be pleased with him Central Asia when he became the Khalifa. And he said to her, so you know the value of woman when the woman is educated, this is a miracle morning. Me in Sham. She was in Medina. And he sent to her and says, send me a letter of advice.
Woman advice me.
And she said,
Wow, you call him by his name. Ma salaam monadic. Peace be upon you.
And my bad. This is a very common when you start saving. I have heard the Roswaal a salatu salam saying the following. This one applies to us here
in this community, in every community, in your family, with your family with your friends, she said the following and I want you to tell me why did she give him this advice?
So you know how smart she was? She said and I'm gonna read in the manual camera sorry about why you're so happy nurse kuffaar Hello Monita NASCI woman named Emma salary law and NASCI visa hottie law what color hola hola NUS was Salam o Alec. That's the only thing she said three lines. Three lines. That's really good. She said, What are we Peace be upon you?
Indeed I heard the Roswaal is a lot worse. And I'm saying the following.
Whoever seeks Allah pleasure
by making people upset.
Allahu sufficent from old people
and the opposites and whoever seeks the people's pleasure by disobeying Allah and by making Allah angry, Allah subhanaw taala will leave him to those people.
What did she tell?
What was the and then she said MPSP upon you? What was the advice? This is the ruler? What was the advice what you said to
do what this is an advice of do do what?
I want to hear it.
It is not only obey Allah, she made it this combination.
says Don't you ever
try to please people, by disobeying Allah.
And don't because if you do that, you know what he will do. He will leave you to those people. And when they hurt you and do all these things don't come back to me and well Allah didn't say that. This is the inner meaning of
sins. The reason we sin is literally three reasons. One is me. And one is shaitan. And the third one
people is people. Everyone else is doing it. Everyone else is saying this. I'm not going to be the only one. Everybody will talk about me they will say this and this fine. That's
He was saying to him you want to go and please people so everybody please, everybody praise you. You want to do that? And then by this way obeying Allah then go and do it.
But then Allah will leave you to those people don't complain about them later on when they disappoint you
can anyone in this room maybe not the very young yet yet, can tell me they have never been disappointed by human being?
Where do we start with the list?
Well, right, then don't do that.
Always always if you want your relationship with Allah to be continued don't please anyone else other than Him and if a pleasing Him come with the pleasing the people Alhamdulillah
and this is possible. It depends on your
what company who are your friends, who do you spend time with? Who you're so eager to invite your home and so eager to go to their home and be in their company? If they are people who will help you to be close to Allah then you're the lucky person otherwise you really have to look into this
what will bring me close to Allah
and give me an example now I'm going to give you some examples hunt do we have plenty of time to dig around?
What will bring me close to
obedience does general give me I need to hear it from everyone because I have a long list for you. I want to see how many how many of the list you know let's start from the what will bring me close to Allah anything.
Okay, so now perfect hamdulillah anybody in this side?
I can do
fasting Ramadan, extra fasting you are getting the next step.
Remember there's obligation and there is extra. Like what else? Don't tell me what do I need? I need reality. I want to hear one thing I hope I'm gonna hear it
gratefulness to Allah read the Quran. I don't want this I want the between human beings.
I want to between human beings.
Kindness. That's one I'm looking for second one. I somebody said forgiveness.
It's one of the hardest one on us human beings. I will never forgive her. You hear it from this age.
She took my toys she did that I will never forgive them. Where did they learn this?
To the house.
In the house sins. When I watch something haram it will be very difficult for me to forgive someone. This is what I want. You have to make the connection.
And don't blame it on her because it's how we normally say you don't know what she did to me. Of course, nobody did worse than what they did to Rasul Allah Santosa. No one throw garbage on him. No one called you crazy. And you are the Prophet. But why was he so easy for him? And how often go You're all free. They're all forgiven? Why is he was conducted with aloha food. He was connected with the most forgiving so of course I'll forgive a lot of Buena AFLW. Hola. Hola, como, don't you like Allah to forgive you?
connection with Allah subhanaw taala will not start there is another side of the coin. When or will start I will say when you will start having some of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. Do you know this concept?
Yes or No?
i Oh, no, I'm not hearing you.
If Allah is the generous,
yes or no?
What should I be?
What do I What should I have? Generosity? And what is generosity? Just by giving money? What about somebody who doesn't have money? What is you know what's generosity?
What I'm going to say don't do it. But I'm gonna say when someone comes in, and you're sitting in the first room, and you are here half an hour before the class and you see somebody standing immediately you're gonna sit on the floor, then you are generous without someone asking you.
Generosity is not of course I'm gonna Can you give me Okay, fine. Sure. That's not I'm not generous. I'm just shy. She asked me it's very hard to say no.
Generosity is two things is when I give way more than what she asked me. Or he asked me and then the generous person is the one who gives before even someone Oh,
open their mouth.
And are we generous? Don't answer.
This is what I was trying to say the closest the closer I am to Allah. I hope this is very clear concept. Now, the closer I am to Allah, the more I have of His attributes and become easier for me.
For example, Allah is very merciful, of course Rahman Rahim, the closer I am to Allah, I become merciful. You know, what is the sign of mercy? One of the easy signs of mercy is one
Yeah, Allah we don't even know the sign of Marcy won't be the Colombian. what forgiveness is as a result of being merciful, but a sign you're merciful. Are the Rama he said Italy so that was tears? Yes, your eye tears. You hear that? You hear the Quran? You see something sad not movie.
May Allah forgive us? You're all laughing because it's real. Right? I'm not bringing any examples from the moon today. Why? And this is what when when
young Roswaal is salatu salam when he his son died and he was crying. The Sahaba looked at
you and you cry. And he said how the Rama other falafel. And this is a sign of mercy. A lot, put it in the heart. So if I have very dry eye, and I brag about it.
That doesn't mean you don't you don't cry in public. Some people don't cry in public. That's what I'm talking about when you are with Allah subhanaw taala alone, then I am far from the source of Rama. That I have to say what did I do?
What did I commit?
And what was my problem? Don't blame again, anybody else and even shape on? Why didn't I say no to sins sever the relationship with a wasp pantalla. That's why you reach a point not you are the biller. You see people reach a point where it doesn't matter anymore.
The sins become one worse than the other. And this is why it's very scary. And this is to everybody. When you start to become weaker, and scholars will teach you this. It's a slope.
Like you're going like if you go for hiking, and when you're coming back. Coming back is very easy, right? Going up is very hard.
So when you come down, going up, this is me and you're getting close to a wasp pantalla it's very hard. But every time I take one step, I'm stronger. I build up more momentum, I build up more energy, this is even physics. So you go up, up, up and you keep going, right? Once you start going down what happens becomes much easier. You take an hour to go up and you go down in five minutes.
That's how I am with Allah subhanaw taala my relationship should always be uphill. I'm going to him Subhanallah and we are all going to him but I'm going to him with my actions. The moment I sin, I am already away from him. Now remember, if you sin and you repent, you didn't sin. If you sin and repent, if you didn't sin, you're already as if you have not sin. But if I say it's okay, what is the big deal? Okay, Allah has got for writing the usual words we all say. That's it. And the more you go, the more you got to reach a point it doesn't hurt anymore.
What is the big deal?
I think I shared this example this this is a true story. I was told this story was a man lived in Medina, younger man, all his life, never seen a woman without hijab. Never.
And he traveled to Egypt. In the airport, younger man came down at the airport. You're gonna laugh at this example. It's a real example. And he saw a woman with our teacher heard here is showing me the man fainted. See, I told you see?
That's where we are.
Imagine it see. Why do you think he fainted?
Is how can people disobey Allah like this?
It's so sad. I every time I read the story, or I remember the story. I was like, why don't I have the heart of this younger man. When I see Allah disobeyed. I get so unhappy. It affects me to the point I trained.
Versus if I lose something very valuable to me. What happens?
Did you get my point?
What happens because of the constant sinning on daily basis? small, tiny ones, tiny ones, tiny ones, you all know the story. I'm sure you know the story, the story of the monk who killed at the end, you know the story.
