Bismillah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen

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

or salat wa salam

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

ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edgebanding Dear brothers As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

First of all,

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

I would like to express my

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

happiness

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

and enjoyment for being with you tonight. And I always say, when I, whenever I come to East London here, to give a talk, that whenever I come to East London, it gives me

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

really very strong feeling that Islam is on rise.

00:00:51--> 00:01:09

And I feel internally, brothers, that time victorious, or like, I'm not just trying to say this in order to encourage you, but no, I feel that Islam is victorious. And I feel that in this piece of land,

00:01:10--> 00:01:21

where the people decided that this piece of land will be the main source of crusades against Muslims, at a certain point of time,

00:01:22--> 00:01:50

in this piece of land, and from this, this piece of land, Islam is coming over. And whenever I come to East London, and I saw those people, those young people are practicing Islam, and have the zeal to implement Islam as it was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that gives me encouragement, and that gives me

00:01:51--> 00:01:58

power. And that gives me determination that I should be myself

00:01:59--> 00:02:08

firm on the help, because those young people are on the help. What about us, maybe we are

00:02:10--> 00:02:39

at the age of the fathers, and they, we don't have the desires as they have, and they are starving, they are putting effort in order to follow the help. So what about us, we should put more of effort to follow the help. So, these are glad tidings that we need to bring for for you brothers. And may Allah Allah Allah

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

give you immense reward

00:02:43--> 00:03:15

on our behalf, because you are helping us not we are the people who help you, as I said, because once we see those young people are starving, putting this effort to follow the dean, then this will give us encouragement to do so, as I said, So, you are doing us a favor, not we are the people who are doing doing the favor for you deserve to come along higher on for that.

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

And

00:03:20--> 00:03:25

today's topic, because we have a limited time and we have a lot to cover, let me start

00:03:26--> 00:03:33

the topic immediately. inshallah, the topic is about having high aspiration,

00:03:34--> 00:04:01

having high him to have a zeal to look for lofty and noble deeds, and things in general, not to be a low person looking, aiming for low things for low position in life, for low position in the gender

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

or at least having no vision

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

not to think about what's going on around you.

00:04:12--> 00:04:25

So our talk insha Allah today is about having high aspiration, high ambition to have the zeal to have a high position in the gender.

00:04:27--> 00:04:52

First of all, if someone asks, do we have to have this high aspiration? Do we have to have that z? Do we have to aim high? Maybe it is enough for us brothers, just to aim to get into gender, not necessarily to get into the high position of gender. That will be more than enough?

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

No, that is not right at all brothers, and even if someone used Heidi palheiro

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

When palha radi Allahu Allah and who say the Bedouin came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, yo rasulillah what is the obligation upon me? He said, You pray five times, you first the month of Ramadan, and you give these a camp. And even in most of the Hadith, the head was not mentioned. Then the person this bedwin asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, is there any other obligation upon me, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, no, then the man went left and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam looked at him, and he said, after Harvey and so that means he is successful if he was truthful in what he said, well, because he said, Will La Isla De La Hoya and

00:05:48--> 00:06:42

close by Allah, I will not do more, I will not do less. So, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, By Allah, He is successful. So, if he is successful, and he said that I will pray five times only, I will not add more prayers. I will fast Ramadan, I will do this a cap only I will not add to it. So, why do we need to stop for doing more? Why do we need to play 12 Raka at least every day, other than the Witter? Why do we need to pray for young lady? Why do we need now today either second or first of Shabbat and it is highly recommended that we fast as much as we can in the month of Shabbat as a preparation for Ramadan. Raja the law that said that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam used to

00:06:42--> 00:07:33

foster a lot during the month of Shabbat. Why do we need to do that? So it may be starting at 230 or at least three o'clock and Margaret is 850 Why do we need to do that is too hard for us. hamdulillah we pray five times we will first the month of Ramadan although it is bit difficult. We don't have money or we have money we give it to soccer and we will go to head that's all after our Avi and he is going to be granted paradise or he is successful as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about that person. No, no, the scholars when they discussed this Hadith, they said that this person he was talking to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam before the other Commandments were revealed. So the

00:07:33--> 00:08:22

commandment of Hajj, the commandment of Hajj in some of the head was not mentioned, the commandment of the head was not mentioned as well, and other types of commandments. Also, they said that these are the main pillars of Islam, that the person needs to do if there are no other circumstances that oblige more other obligations. For example, the prophet alayhi wa sallam did not tell him about kindness to parents and it is by consensus of all the scholars that the person has to be kind to his parents, okay, it was not mentioned. So if a person says I will pray five times faster, the month of Ramadan, etc, but I am not to be kind to my parents, am I going to be granted to dinner? No.

00:08:24--> 00:08:42

I might be, am I going to be granted to dinner such as this person? No, because you have carried out some sense Moreover, you have not done some What about some obligations or some compulsory acts that you have to do so you cannot use this hadith. So,

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

is it

00:08:46--> 00:09:14

really recommended that we aim high? Yes, it is highly recommended and some even some scholars said that it is a must to aim high. Why? They said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the authentic hadith, he does ultimo La ilaha IL Allah if you ask a lot deliver Allah the agenda. Don't just ask the agenda. ask them why they love Allah different doses.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

This is one thing also you need you read in the Quran. Allah Allah Allah.

00:09:22--> 00:10:00

Allah Allah Allah said was true Ilana ferati never become Allah Allah Allah also said was a llama karate never become this is a commandment What do means compete? Hurry up, be hasty. Raise with other people compete with other people was the era of Hiroshima become what stereo ihram have become, because as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, khulumani Adama, Papa, papa inna Otto Boone, all of us commit sins. And because we commit sins, we have to aim high in order to wipe our sins in order for the sins to be removed.

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

From our scale and the Day of Judgment, that's why Allah Allah Allah said what do we do? Ilana Hirata Mira become it is a commandment that you have to compete you have to be quick in what asking for the forgiveness of Allah Allah Allah Lita alone that Allah Allah Allah in many Ayah praise those who compete WhatsApp the owner said Oh Allah.

00:10:26--> 00:10:50

Allah Subhan Allah Allah Allah is praising them. Then Allah Allah, Allah say, sola terminal avelina, Waka domina are fading, those who compete those who come at the front, they don't accept to be at the back. They don't accept to be at the rear of the group of the people. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and they either had a

00:10:52--> 00:11:29

bad year or Bill Murray, Seaton and cafe par la Muslim young Shivaji domina what used to be called kathira UMC ymc. Meaning what used to be her calf era Do they know who they are out of the minute dunya Paddy, baggy rubella means be quick, be so hasty to do good deeds before they fit in, where you are unable to do the good deeds. That's why the person should live with this high aspiration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, all of his sins were forgiven.

00:11:30--> 00:11:45

Yet he was to display on Late one time, one of the companions of the law gala and had asked her, tell me about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam she said, all the matters of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam were very strange.

00:11:47--> 00:12:09

Could you agree he can algebra? One time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to asleep, and he wasn't sleeping, and then she slept for a little while. And then he woke up. And then he said to viola, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, let me worship My Lord. And then he stood to pray. After he had,

00:12:10--> 00:12:59

he had quick will do. And then he started to pray. And then he started to pray, even while his kids were coming, and he was the person whom the Allah, Allah, Allah forgive, forgive all his sins. That's why I shall be allowed to Allah. In the other hand, he said, Dr. rasulillah, you do this while Allah has forgiven all your sins. Then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said as Allah akuna absentia Cora should entirely be a thankful person, shouldn't I be a thankful slave of Allah, Allah Allah. This is the mentality the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to live and he used to encourage us to be as such people, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting next to

00:12:59--> 00:13:43

Kava, and then hubbub with some of the Sahaba during the Macan period came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they were tortured, they were humiliated. They were facing all types of difficulties, the dirt in the mud competed, and then they say to the Prophet, sallAllahu sallam, all Prophet, why don't you ask Allah Allah to send his victory upon us? Look, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he is not teaching them to be just normal people. He is teaching them to be leaders because they are going to be the leaders of the whole nation. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam sat down and he was angry, instead of if someone if someone he is coming to you and he said, Listen, they have tortured

00:13:43--> 00:14:18

me, they have humiliated me, they are doing this and that against me, what are you doing to do from a psychological point of view, you will say, yeah, and you just be patient. And this Allah, Allah, Allah will give you a reward, and they are plotting and Allah Allah, Allah is the best one to plot, etc, etc. No, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even did not accept this from them, did not have this kind of discourse with them because he wants to teach them to be leaders. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and he was angry.

00:14:19--> 00:14:28

And he said, What's the matter with you, the people before you, they were tortured with some kinds of torture, they were cut into two parts.

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

And they were come between the bones and their flesh with metal comes and that do does not prevent them from maintaining their day. What's wrong with you? Subhanallah when normally when we face these difficulties, we think that these are the biggest difficulties that anyone in the world is facing. Know. The prophet SAW Selim is telling them what's wrong with you, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

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

Teaching them to aim high to look forward. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them when la healing Allah who has had the seal of Marina to mean Santa,

00:15:12--> 00:15:46

latter half of Illa Allah Allah, Allah had me how alakina component is daijiro by Allah, Allah will perfect this matter until the lady travels from sun to heaven remote 1000s of miles. She doesn't feel anything except Allah and the world for her sheeps. But you are so hasty, you are so hasty for asking victory. Look, the the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us that's why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave tarbiyah to Abu Bakr Anissa deer and to

00:15:47--> 00:16:36

Abu Bakr Siddiq in the early days when the machete king of Christ came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and told him after the study of marriage, you know, now they are talking about the in the month of Java and about the study of marriage. They came to the Prophet, the two Abubakar on a Sunday and told him Have you heard what your friend is saying? He is claiming that he went all the way to better knock this and then he wants to have ends in one night. Brothers imagine this nowadays nowadays. We are when we talk about Hadoop when then we say Hadoop are they compatible with Western lifestyle? hijaab is it compatible with the Western lifestyle? Bill? Is it compatible with the

00:16:36--> 00:17:16

Western life is tight? Other things of our Deen? Are they compatible with our Western lifestyle? Subhanallah we have week Eman. We don't have confidence in what Allah Allah Allah revealed that it is the best for humanity, Ababa chronicity. At that time, imagine there is no internet there is no mobile phones. There are no airplanes there are no rockets, etc. Imagine bedwin who can imagine that a person left Makkah and the rich bacon mock this within one night, let alone to ascend to the heavens in one night and come back and

00:17:17--> 00:17:54

tell the people of Makkah that I visited Vitor mock this, everyone will become much of this person who is claiming this and no one could imagine that this can be true. A Baba Khurana said they said Did he say that? Yes. He said that. He said if he said that. Then whatever he says is the truth Subhana line. He has this high aspiration. That's why this Abu Bakr on Cydia, he is the booth that he is the best of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave tarbiyah to this kind of person. Baba Khurana said, Look, you're the high Hema

00:17:55--> 00:18:48

high. The zeal that Abu Bakr Siddiq have the high ambition when the Arabs have stated around the Medina and Subhana Allah He was surrounded by those who stated and the Romans about to attack them. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam prepared the case of Osama even Hussein who was Assam, Abu Zaid, he was the age of 17 to lead the army. Then the companions came to Abu Bakr on a Sunday, they said yada, yada yada rasulillah just wait, hold on the army. Don't descend them there because the Arabs are surrounding us and they stated they had read that. He said when la de la MC Quebec and Federico Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I do not hold an army an expedition that the Prophet

00:18:48--> 00:19:28

sallallahu Sallam was about to send. He said yo sama Empire and then he sent Osama and then he stood alone to fight the Mata de la Mancha. He is the second companion. He said, Yeah, Baba Yaga What are you doing? Those are Muslims. How can you fight them? He said, Well, ah he dominar only a polar bear eating can who I don't know a Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam apartelle to Mali. If they are if they withhold a rope that they use to give to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam just because of the death of the prophet SAW Salem I would fight them and he stood and fought them all. And Allah Allah Allah give him victory.

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

This is abubaker we can speak a lot about their story the studies of Abu Bakr in acidic and the ambition Abu Bakr Siddiq used to have aka Mr. Malhotra the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to admire Amano hapa and he said that the Quran came in conjunction a came with what Rama Rama hapa suggested Subhana Allah Allah that He the Quran was revealed to agree with what

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

have suggested in for occasion and the power of the Allahu taala. And

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

when

00:20:09--> 00:20:20

one of the candles of the sadaqa run away, this is the comment of the muslimeen of the sadaqa of the Muslim, Omar. He hold his

00:20:22--> 00:21:12

he pulled his clothes and he stopped running after becoming an even RV pilot. He was amazed. Yeah amirul momineen What are you doing? He said, One comment of the video of the saga of the camels of the charity run away and I would like to hold it Why? Because it is the wealth of the muslimeen it is the man of the muslimeen. He said adaptiveness about the Khalifa Khalifa rasulillah adaptiveness, about the Kyani who can compete with you, you are doing this, all the people who come with you, they cannot even reach your level. They are Khalifa rasulillah and little owner's manual. And even a ba ba, ba ba and here brothers once we talk about these stories from the Sahaba, many of us, many of us

00:21:12--> 00:21:30

will say those are the Sahaba who used to receive Tobia, Director BIA from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. That's why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave them this kind of therapy and they had this high ambition and they are looking for the lofty things and lofty deeds.

00:21:31--> 00:21:50

No, if you go all the way during our history and the management and innominate Rahim Allah, you know, he stood alone. Again, it's the whole the whole nation at that time. Again, it's the halifa at that time, and he was beaten

00:21:51--> 00:22:15

severely, but he was not compromising on the truth because this is a major thing. It cannot be and he was an email. And I remember one time he was in the in the present. And he used to say and he said, Look, we can give the stories about Elena Mohammed, but I will give you a story about someone else other than Mr. Mohammed. I remember I used to say,

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

Allahu Mohammed Al Hasan Allah, Mohammed Al Hasan alohomora.

00:22:21--> 00:22:53

The his son, he said to him, yeah, Betty, I used to hear you saying Allah, Mohammed Al Hasan, who is I would hate them. He said, The Buddha, I would hate them when I was in prison. And they were smacking me. They were flogging me. Then they used to call me for sessions for flogging. One time when I was in the present. A person pulled my soap. And he said, Yanina. Do you know me? He said, Who are you? He said, No. He said.

00:22:54--> 00:23:50

He said, I don't know. He said Anna will hate me. Para means has a burger. He used to steal from people. I was flogged 18,000 times, 18,000 times and different occasions. And I was firm on what I used to do. Shouldn't you be firm on the help? And I was firm on the barbell. So he saved this apple Haytham he encouraged me to be what to be firm on the half. Now this is who we are brothers. This is about Haytham we all know and in America, we all know what Adnan Medina said that Allah Allah Allah gave victory to this day by two people. I am a reader. Mm hmm. We know any mammal but who knows I will hate them. No one knows I would hate them. But Allah, Allah, Allah knows, who knows who was I

00:23:50--> 00:24:41

will hate them. And that's why the person we say once we talk about him, and once we talk about love the aiming guy, we say brothers, you don't need to be an Imam, you don't be a leader. You don't need to be a leader. You don't need to be a big person in order to aim high. The person who is looking forward for the agenda, looking forward for very word of Allah, Allah, Allah and he wants to escape from the hellfire. He will be. He will be that person. He will aim high and respective of his position in this dunya that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith from Buhari, there is absolutely no there is Abdul camisa de Abdul Camila. There is a case where either

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

she can Turkish Toba in academia and nfrc visa v the law in Canada cerca de veau of itself. We're in Canada film author of our film, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is praising, praising the person who is taking

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

The range of his horse ready, ready whenever any expedition is coming, he will join that expedition fi sebelah ready to start for free sebelah ready to sacrifice himself fi sebelah ready to go here and there? It is. It does not matter for him at all whether he is a leader or whether he is the caretaker, he is ready, feasibility law doing anything feasibility law, that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man will be born with

00:25:35--> 00:26:17

Sabrina shaba Allah Allah da, da da da inopportune on a period when you remove home from the path of the Muslim means this is a hazard. The person who is aiming high, he will find any any thing that needs to Janna, anything that leads to more has an ad and he will do it. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised the seven people who will go to Paradise and this is a hadith that really you need to study carefully. He the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned was shabu shabu

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

caldo de la la palabra. Whom Allah Subhana Allah, a sham. I am person.

His heart, His heart is linked attached to the masajid in the other hand is Yaga Bora buena. The Hadith is not very strong, but yeah, boo boo Nam insha. Allah Subhana Allah Akbar, Allah, Allah is above us. Allah is the one who created us all. He is admiring a person, young person who have who has no desire to Panama. Yaga Allah, Allah admires that person who has no desire from those young people. That's why we always say to the young people, young people, you have a chance you have a chance better than us who maybe have reached the age of 40. You have a better chance. remain firm, remain firm on the help. Don't go astray Allah, Allah Allah will love you Allah. Allah will admire

00:27:20--> 00:27:36

what you do, Allah Jalla Allah is likely to accept you more than to accept our job. And then in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Why don't you do unfuckin so cotton dsid unfuckin a cotton

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

mill Oh my god.

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

Anyway, let

00:27:45--> 00:28:15

me know. He, this person, no one knows about him. And he is giving this sadaqa secretly means he is not looking at the position in this union at all. He is not looking at that. But he is giving the sada secretly until his other hand doesn't know about this sidecar that is the person who is aiming high. Now, some people might say these are

00:28:16--> 00:28:24

these are the people who we used to follow. Alabama boo hanifa Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah just

00:32:51--> 00:33:34

And the Quran Let us read in the Quran examples about those people who are aiming high. Look in Surah trc Allah Allah Allah mentioned us about the study of us horrible Korea, it also now in with name protectable Home Affairs as an avatar. For the first dance we get it from the surah is from this history, that Allah Allah Allah sent to prophets by the La Jolla, Allah could send one prophet is enough. No alongi Allah Allah wants to teach us just be with that good people in our Kunal Masada be with the good people. Maybe one Prophet, will not be a strong enough to face the

00:33:36--> 00:33:56

the arguments of the people around him. The prophets that Allah Allah Allah sent with him another prophet, no not to prophets. For as Xena Italia, we sent a third prophet in order to make them a team to counter the arguments of the co founder at that time.

00:33:57--> 00:34:16

Other than that, when they the group of prophets, were arguing with the co founder and the co founder, were not accepting the Dharma. What did Allah Allah Allah say all of a sudden? I mean, Uppsala, Medina, Tierra de Paula committable, masari, all of a sudden, a man. He's not a prophet.

00:34:17--> 00:34:31

And he came from nothing from close by, not from the local area. No, he came in from the furthest point in that city in the town. What did he what was his mission? What was his aim?

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

He said you're committed to selling Subhanallah brothers Look at this. If there is an Imam is giving the power to non Muslims, you will be lacking yourself. Because you are not aiming high. You will say, Oh, the Imam is giving them the power. What can I do? Then? Are they going to listen to me? No. What? Who am I? That is doing the job. No brothers. You have to do the job, Billy

00:35:00--> 00:35:51

mean, believe me once you do the job, and in many cases, the job that you do is better than the job and Imam or a scholar or a chef is doing. Why? Because, for example, in that hour, they will say, also panela, this young person, he believes strongly in Ellis law, and he is calling me to Islam, then for sure, Islam is that region, a religion of the truth. I remember when we were in America that there was a young person he is always missing around, he is always missing around and Alhamdulillah now Allah, Allah, Allah guided in him and I saw the headline last week I saw his father I said to him, how is so and so he said, No, Alhamdulillah now he's grown up and he is about

00:35:51--> 00:36:32

to finish his uni and he is, was sent to Canada for work placement, etc. I said, Mashallah, May Allah give you him more, he died. I remember that person. And I don't want to mention the name of the person who accepted Islam because of him. He is a well known person, but maybe it is an embarrassment for him anyway, I would not. He is a well known person. Okay. He is accepted Islam because of this young boy who used to mess around who used to give us a hard time in our mustard. But this person because he believes in the health, he believes in Allah Islam, he said to his teacher, his art teacher,

00:36:33--> 00:37:22

see, I am missing around, but I believe that Islam is the religion of the truth. Why don't you read? And he said, Okay, give me a book. He started to discuss with him about the Trinity about Christianity, etc, etc. At the end of the day, that person, his teacher, came to our mustard and he embraced Islam in front of us all because of this young person. What Yeah, I mean, XL Medina, theological USA. He never said, well, the Imam is doing the job. This is my art teacher, he is more qualified than me. He knows more than me and religions and Christianity, etc, etc. I cannot do anything with him. Subhan Allah, he accepted Islam because of him. And Tyler committed almost

selling it to be Roman law is

00:37:25--> 00:37:49

Similarly, the story of Musa alayhis salam, the prophet Allah, Allah Allah wants to teach us, just be active, be proactive, look for opportunities to do things just don't sit aside. Why do you accept to be led while you can be a leader? Why you accept to be a follower while you can lead the prayer?

Why did you become Why do you accept that the people push the oma to be victorious on them

This is in a nutshell why because the one who is resting in his life is just sitting relaxing, not doing anything, he will not work for him his hair after also even in this dunya The one who is relaxing. For example, even in his study, the one who is relaxing who is not studying hard, who is not working hard, he will not good get good grades, he will not get good marks, he will not go to a good university after university he will not have a good job, etc etc. Then because of the relaxation that he used to enjoy when he was young. Now he is suffering. Similarly, if you want to enjoy you here after you
