Allah subhana wa tada
yakushi kita Villa Aziz in tienen, and other as Virgie rasulillah salam salam wa honeybaked he would coordinate YOU TO THE BEAUTY Kunta, Minaya de la hikmah in a lot of different hubiera lots of bandwidth Anna says, Remember
the verses that are being recited in your homes, there were
homes in right next to the province, the license machines which are still there, and Allah subhana wa as reminding them that these buyers are being revealed in your presence. And then he says, will hikma and this is what Mr. Schaeffer he said. That hikma in the Quran is the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin because the hikma is the application of the ayat so remember the blessing of not only having the ayat but having a an exemplar amongst you. That's practicing the ayat but then Allah subhana wa tada and immediately after and the next is sort of terrassa he gives
a certain set of embodiments of the people that are of this victory
right with corner like remember he reminded remind yourselves and he says in in Muslim Mena what I mostly met
when what meaning minutes Well, apparently Tina, what Pani tat Masada Pina was ideapad was Sabina was sabirah
What has your inner what how she had one Mutasa de Akina when Mutasa, Deckard was saw Amina was slightly mad, was we'll have Deena furuya whom will happy that
with Akkadian Allah Catherine will there Kara, those 10 people are mentioned. They're all the same, but their qualities that these people have the IRS and the Hickman embody. So and then he says add Allahu Allahu monterra
Allah has prepared for them, Amal Farah was around him and a vast reward. So if you look at these 10 He begins with an mossimo and will see me in and Massimino Silla, and the in there is for emphasis. Surely Verily, in truth, those people of Islam, Islam is the entrance into the door of the other nine.
Right? Because Islam is in Riyadh, Leo Ahmed, Allah is behind Oh, Tada. It's a state of submission means Hey, you know, lean on either Caden path, believer is easy and malleable, either either when he is given direction from Allah, and he accepts the direction so the Islam is the in Korea, the LM relies on our data. So it's to obey an MT 31.
Wanting to hire you, you you obey the commands of Allah and you avoid the prohibitions of Allah and then you're a Muslim.
It's a it's an action of the heart and action of the limbs and limbs meaning jawara right, not just the what we say in English, is a difficult word, because the Arabs use it for the tongue, which is not considered a limb in English. But these jawara
aspects of your body that Allah has given you to protect, because they're the in rows to the heart. So all of these are in rows, and then gender has seven doors because each door corresponds to one of these limbs.
And the worst and most difficult one is the tongue, which is why all the other limbs every morning, they're in a state of terror, in a spiritual reality that the Providence told us about the tongue. Right, asking the tongue to be rightly guided
Because they say, if you're either stuck contest or if you're straight, we're straight.
Without I would just I would just not and if you go astray we go astray. That's all the limbs telling the tongue, which is why the Prophet said, and I don't know Kumara malarkey. How the coolie he? Can I tell you what you can get everything? He said, MC kinda had to like take hold of your tongue guard your tongue. And this is why the ancient the ancients knew this. This wasn't limited to Islam.
One of the great Chinese sages, he said,
because people wanted to rectify the kingdom.
They first rectified
themselves and in wanting to rectify themselves, they first rectified their own homes, and then in wanting to rectify their own homes, they rectified themselves in wanting to rectify themselves. They rectified their actions in wanting to rectify the actions they rectify their towns.
So everything emanates from there all wars start with words. You know, all hatefulness is expression. It's all expression. So,
Allah subhana wa tada says, He begins why the believers, the Muslims, and then he tells the Arabs out of the Arab Amen. The Arab they say we believe
Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't don't say we believe that's a photo American Kuru SNM. Now, what am I totally meant to say first that you submit and then
because your Eman has not yet entered into your heart. So first say we submit. So it begins with the LM Allah has to handle the data in non Muslim in one Muslim ad. And the reason that this is one of the few verses in the Quran, where the women are mentioned alongside the men and this came from a complaint from one of the women they said Elia Cora Ridgeway diet coordinator, Yara Sorolla. After that the IRS began to
incorporate both the Decker and the ATA which is an indication that if you don't speak up, you don't get your your rights, right. You have to you have to voice something in order for something to change. That is a clear indication of that. That if you don't speak up, things don't change. So then he's in menino one more minute he man right What is he man he man is his trusty officer in email with us tip will not coffee her whole food at you should have learned that that he man is conviction in the heart. It's Amazon. It's not it doesn't relate to the the job. The job is is to numb the heart is a man right? And so and then well, a tiny teeny tiny teen are the people that are in
because you can be a Muslim and be outwardly
in a state of submission like the mafia Poon. But it's not penetrated the heart so the man penetrates the heart once the man penetrates the heart then the cannula is a BA it's it's it's an internal state with Allah subhanho data where you're doing the actions based on an inner conviction, not just on because other people are doing it. There's people in the Muslim world still to this day, that it's merely a cultural expression, it becomes a cultural identity. There are certain countries where everybody prays so they pray whether they believe it or not. Or because the the, the more power is telling them going to the masjid they go into the machine. So the minute the minute is and
that's why salata Puente is where at fudger the time, when you should
call on a lot more than any other time. And this is why even in short a user when they ask him when his sons asked him to, to ask forgiveness for what they did. He says I will
write in the future. He uses the set because in the tip series, they say he was going to wait till fudger to do that. Because that's the best time to ask Allah subhana wa tan, meaning one woman on wattpad Ethan Rabbani was sada Pina wasa Jihad
kuno Masada Kenya Valentina, Amano, topo la Hakuna Masada can be with truthful people. The hallmark of our faith is CIT, which is related to airfloss which is related to South Africa. And so the
city is very important this way the province allies can have stubbornness, and his closest companion was called acidic. He has the highest mokum and the Cydia corner immediately after the profits because they're the people of sick
Which is absolute
authenticity and integrity. So they're inward and they're outward are the same. There's no there's no separation. They're completely whole human being, they don't have the shadows gone. You know, if you look, shadows only exist when there's some kind of
inclination of the sun. But when the sun's directly overhead, the shadow disappears when the truth is directly. If you're perfectly aligned with the truth, the shadow self disappears. There's nothing there. There's nothing to hide.
There's nothing that you're ashamed of. And people you know, I lived with a man
that had who lived an open tent. His whole life is an open book. Everybody saw him, you could see him 24 seven. The open book is rare to see that, but he was an open book, one man saw him.
Once in a dream, he was ashamed to say, but he said, I saw a man praying naked. And he went to somebody known for interpretation of dreams. And he said, I saw this, one of our righteous people praying naked, I didn't understand it, he said, that could only be more of their hand.
Right? Because the sitter, the clothes are for them. So if you have nothing to hide,
then you're naked before our last panel. And we're always in reality naked before a lot. That's why a normal piano, you're naked.
Because that's the reality of the human condition, our law sees everything. So sit, and then because when you're truthful,
you're going to have problem to also be happy, right happens from sit to also be unhappy. And then to also have a subpar because whenever you're truthful, you're going to have people react against you. It's just the nature of dunya. Because this place is, is a place of tribulation, truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne. This is dunya truth forever on the scaffold, wrong, forever on the throne. Yet the scaffold sways the future.
And beyond the dim, unknown standard,
God in the shadows, keeping watch over his own. for dunya false hood rains, it's the nature of the abode. But the Ashura it's all in tears with Yama, Yama removed, now distinguish yourselves here, it's, it's Donald stlr, Jr. is an abode mixed abode. Harder to Amnon sorry, handwara ceja. People mix Good and Evil together. Ours is of a mingled young, good, and Ill woven together. That's the nature of dunya. But in the era of pure distinction in Tasmania,
they're over there, they're over there. And even on the Sirat, when the mecca leave come these iron, they're like machines, there's some kind of scanning machine that scans the human who now we see all these machines, they put them, put them in machines, they scan you, they look at your whole body, these are things that Allah created that scan your soul.
And if there's a magnet, if there's like, still jelenia, or something in it, it'll clamp on, and then the man will fight with it.
This is an ad on the Sierra. And these are huge, the prophet said they're made out of there. Like he said, they're like, clamps. And he said, they're vast machines that are made out of iron.
And they clamp on, because they scan the human crossing the setup, and they see, ah, just like a scanner sees like a tumor. These scanners, they see the reality of your soul. And that's why the Prophet said helped me on the setup. And the profit is at the other end of the sirop saying a lahoma sell them sell.
You know, like, like, save them, because these are his people. But these, these, some of them get thrown into the hell, they just right off the bat out there just picked up and thrown. These are how they're amazing.
They're only a modern person could understand because at the time, they didn't have science fiction, but that's what it would seem like to the Sahaba hearing that about a syrup and these machines that scan the the soul and then clamp on who could imagine those things
in the seventh century. Amazing.
So that's a reality.
You know, sit When, when, when when you have sincerity. This is this is what
you're going to have to have patience. Right? Well, I know Bruno, can you say a minute how he was your immune optimization and why he went out to see what thammarat was.
Bashar Assad Marine, we're going to test you and the Quran says well I know blue is a lot doing it.
When he talks about the around right when when Allah Subhana Allah talks about alpha around you soon will come soon.
Were you there but who knows now can we start UniSA como fanatical bow muraki calm that was from your Lord, the enslavement of the Israelites in Egypt. Allah says it was from your Lord.
It wasn't front well, who who do you think's controlling this world? Allah enables some people to have power over other people as a test. Look at the door of the Prophet led to sell it, Idina be the novena don't put people over us because of our sins and this were the Muslims go wrong because they go into this Marxist idea that this is somehow only about this world. There's no reality determining events in this world and then it just becomes politics and power. That's all it becomes know when when a log puts people over you is a tribulation from our law. Right and that's why he says with Kuru Matala at a con, like remember God's blessing on you when he saved you from the people that are
around and that those is and with the naraku convention cartoon as identical. Despite the fact he's telling them how horrible they had now you're out of it. So be grateful that you're out of it because what got you into it was in gratitude
that's what got you into it in the first place. And that's why suffer is the essence of this religion. Ramadan is coming they call it the it's the month of suffering because they're supposed to teach us patience, dealing with food people if they miss a meal, they become cranky and angry because there's no patience, right? sovereign Jimmy look at yaku as amazing chapter in the Quran Surah 12 he lost his son
but he never lost faith in Allah subhana wa tada and he said sovereign Jamil. I will be in a beautiful patient what is beautiful patient you don't complain?
That's the sovereign gymea sabar you can complain to people. Right? But it doesn't help. They don't. People don't like hearing your complaints. Right?
convention you know shakra there people don't like to hear it. Allah loves to hear complaints. You want to complain, complain to God? Because Allah loves to hear your complaints. Not about him about yourself.
Because all the problems are from your own selves. That's where it is. In America, you come and unphysical your wrongs are against your own souls, Marvin Um, no, but I can count on for some y'all the new moon we did not oppress them but they were oppressing themselves. But people don't want to do this. They don't want to admit that we all have responsibility here all of us everybody's responsible. You know, innocence in the Quran. Children Yes.
There's there's definitely oppression and things like that, but allows reminding us that. Understand there's only two things happening. It's either reflect damage that allows elevating you with tribulation, or he's removing sins. With the Prophet. He was elevating him nobody had a more difficult time. And yet you never hear the Prophet complaint show me one Hadees where he complains about koresh.
In fact, at par If his complaint is himself.
He said he's evil koray sakuta doing Tamiya Allah, he's saying ash coo Erica abou Erica, you know, shekhawati I'm going to complain to you.
Darfur, hilarity, my lack of strategy.
Like I've tried all these things, none of them worked. Well how Arnie Allen s he didn't say he Honiton NASA. He said my humiliated condition amongst the people. That's what he complained, I complained about himself, show me where he complains about them. And then when the angel came and said, Look, we can just destroy them all. Now they humiliated him, they spat on him threw rocks at him. So all I do is sit him and and Allah said the angel of add them and said just one word. And they're gone. He said, No, I hope that their children will worship Allah.
That's a different worldview. But
Allah subhana wa atana tells us and in the tough series, they say this is to be human, a lot, get prepared. If you're in ease, get prepared for hardship. And when you're in hardship,
know that the ease is coming. But when you're at ease, get prepared for hardship, because that's the nature of the abode. And all these people out here they just want to make paradise here at paradise.
will never be here. It'll never be here the disease is going to come, the financial downturns going to come, the fire in your house is going to come. You know the loss of life. That's what Allah says, I'm going to test you with all these sayings and give good news to the people of patience. Right? What has your inner inner Hershey or Hershey, I hope Hush, sure. The dears Be sure and other types of fear is the horseshoe is always from somebody who recognizes he's under the martial law who,
who sure is always recognizing that you're under because you can have fear but think we'll get him later. You know, a situation you can have fear of somebody, but you can't wait to get into power so you can crush him who sure is where you know this person is, or this reality is above you. It's different from that. And then some say Hershey, I thought I swear to the right man, that horseshoe is a type of humbleness, an internal humbleness that leads to speaking humbly. You're not shouting, you're speaking humbly what once the Sahaba were at a place.
They were about to do battle and they started raising their voices. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And the Prophet said out about OBM fusi calm, you know, just control yourself your Lord is not death.
The Prophet didn't like shouting. He didn't like out of bed that he didn't like.
They said Mark can also Harmon swap in the in the Hadith, he never he rarely raised his voice in the marketplace. That's a place where it because the marketplace of the pre modern people is more like a flea market where people call out and say what they have. So he didn't even raise his voice in the marketplace where it was acceptable, let alone other places.
So and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says when Mutasa de Aquino one matassa one thing about sofar I wanted to mention that
this idea land number one, no calm is land OC vendor calm, that's how they interpret it in the tip series. Allah will
give you masiva He will send them masiva. But when that comes, there's still jack. It's a reminder to yourself, in lillahi wa in La arogya. I belong to Allah. In other words, I'm the milk of Allah, and he can do whatever he wants with his dominion. You cannot vote is never if, you know, if I own this place, and I decide to burn this rug and I go out and get an incinerator and burn the rug. Nobody can tell me I have no right to do it because it's my property is my MOOC. And so Allah because he owns us, he can oppress us. He can do whatever he wants for Al Lima. You read now you
don't he's not asked about what he does. But you will be asked about what you do because you are property we are property, we belong to Allah. We are the milk of Allah. Tabata subotica lon the DBA the hill milk, right to Baraka Liddy via the hill moon, it's his molk it's in his dominion, it's in his power. And so accepting that and Allah subhana wa tada says Wilma, Wilma is harbor minimal civitan illa B is in Illa there will be no affliction that comes to accept by us the permission of Allah. And then look what Allah says woman Yulin. Billa Yeah, the panda. But if you believe in Allah, when that affliction comes, He will guide your heart to a state of tranquility. Because you
know where it's from, and you know, that not only is he have every right to send you the tribulation, but
he's preparing you for the Ashura
in the law, he was in LA he Rajaram fantastici Brenda, la you consider it something that's coming from a loss of Hannah with Diana, and then he says, SATA, SATA SATA bardhan amtico. You know, this is one of the
proofs of our religion is in fact of giving out the public kanak as well the next version of the canopy Rama one he was the most generous of men the most generous time is Ramadan this why Muslims you It's amazing what you see in Ramadan because they know this is the time that you should be most generous, but bahal and bad character cannot be joined in a believer. You can have a Buccaneer who's a believer and you have somebody who's got bad character who's a believer, but you can't get the two together.
And and once the Prophet as Who's your Savior, and they said, funan Ilana stuff, but you know, he's amazing.
He said, How can I say you'd be a miser? Hope the whole point of a secret is that he gives that he's always helping and spending. And then he says we're gonna get down at one minute Bali, is there any disease worse than miserliness is a sickness. So those are the matassa, who was sorry, meanwhile, Simon, that people are fasting, you know, the people of insec. And fasting has spiritual meanings. We could spend many, many hours just on looking at all those different, you know, Sumo taseko. Fast and become well, safira saho. Right.
So, and then finally, the habitat for rouge and Decker. So have that forages related to sabar and fasting, right? And especially for young people, because it's more difficult for them. But have the courage is that the essence of preserving a civilization once you get what we're seeing in this culture, this is the worst sign for a culture. The prophets I seldom said you will never see illegitimate children emerge in a civilization except allows preparing them for that civilization.
You should go on your own home as our wall. It's appropriate and the adab is those children.
Because every child should know who his parents are. And now even worse, they don't even know. You know, it's not it's like test to pudding. You know, they don't even know who their father was. You know, this is these are bad signs. So have that photo, which is one of our five universals in the religion to protect the family to protect also the diseases. We have all these diseases. Now they have a new Candida which I guarantee you came out of STDs. It's it's got 30 to 60% mortality. They're very worried about a Candida Oris. These are all you know, they don't talk about the public health issues of promiscuity and especially what they call
men on men. They don't even say homeless, they just say men on men.
Right? Because they know that that's the most dangerous form. That's what the World Health Organization says the most dangerous form of sexual practices, rectal intercourse. But no, there's nothing, no public service announcements, warning people about this. on Amazon, the opposite. They say Oh, it's a love conquers all.
They warn you about trans fats.
One hamburger won't kill you. They'll warn you about smoking cigarettes. You can smoke for 234 years, give it up and your lungs will recuperate.
But they won't warn you about a certain type of sexual practices that could be literally a death sentence.
This is something very sick about this culture. And we have to feel pity for the people, especially the young people that have been seduced into believing that these things are healthy, or normal, or you're expressing yourself now. We what Allah has given us is to protect us from our own cells.
So there's a blessing to have that have that food is very important. In our Deen chastity, if and traditionally, thought was the virtue of women. You can't even say that anymore. They'll say you're sexist. But the only time the few time, in our tradition where women are put before men is a zania to zanni. Because the woman The man is like an animal
really is like an animal.
So the woman has to help that man, help himself.
That's the onus and that's why it's not that men. Men should be chaste, and virtuous. But there is an onus on the woman to dress modestly they Oh, you can't say that.
Why can't you say that? Because it's sexist. A woman should be able to dress the way she wants.
if you're, you know, if you're walking in the woods
and and and there's a sign that says danger do not enter into this area. Because there's mountain lions
I just say, Oh, well, I'm free.
I don't have to listen to that sign. And then you say oh, you can't compare that no, there are humans that are like lions worse than lions because the lion will just take what it needs.
Just out for lunch.
This amazing problem in our civilization Why? People can't see these things. And modesty is a hallmark of
Every civilization, the more primitive a culture gets, the less clothes they wear. But if you look at the culture,
the reason they don't have to wear clothes is because they're tight knit. And this has been studied by anthropologists. They're taboo societies, they're very tight knit. And so they don't transgress. other tribes will transgress them. But within their tribe, they have very strict rules that they follow.
Whereas in civilized societies, there's anonymity, you don't know people and you don't know who you're dealing with. You might be dealing with a pedophile, or you might be dealing with somebody who's really sick in their mind. You might be dealing with somebody who's watching all this pornography. And then he gets into a frenzied state, and goes out, you know, these are real, these are realities. And we know that women that cover themselves are generally not. We've seen these things that they've done these social experiments of walking around New York and a hijab, or walking around dressed seductively and the difference between the attitudes of the people but they deny all
this, they say no, the onus is on men to stop behaving like animals. Good luck.
Really good luck. It's unfortunate, but that's a reality just read about fraternities and what they do and how they humiliate women and things like that. If you don't have religion, you know, we'll load them in Sherman no fusi. Right. oppression is a it's of our nature, it's part of the human nature. And the only thing that prevents that is, you know, intended that effort unfairly editing the hell out of me. If you see somebody who has if chastity and is doesn't oppress doesn't rape or pillage is because there's something preventing them from doing it. It's either the society they're afraid of the law, or its religion. It's something in their heart, or goodness that Allah gave them.
And that's why men in war they rape and pillage.
There's people from here we know there were people from here, normal high school kid that went to Iraq, and they raped women. And we know what the Bosnians did, right? The Serbs did to the Bosnian women, this and these were normal people living next door to you, but when it breaks down, who suffers women and children.
So Allah when he says that what have you What have you seen in the house, Nina? Farrugia home, what have you but you know this, this is an important part of our religion.
And then Allah subhana wa tada says, Would that Kadena Maha, right? Kareena Maha Catherine was that cara, those who do much remembrance of Allah because that will give you all of those things. And and for students of knowledge, your dekor is your study, and your madrasa and your medacta and your hebbal. That's the vicar of bodyboarding you should have very small word or something that you do in the morning in the evening and then from the Quran. The best thing at this stage is memorization of foreign but the the P the devotional people, the people of xhoi and things like that. They're not generally people of knowledge. They're people of devotion, people of knowledge, their liquor is
study. And that's why the Prophet when he came to the masjid, one group was doing Decker they were reciting Quran and doing Subhan Allah, another group was studying he said in Guatemala, he went and sat he didn't sit with the the people doing the vicar of Ararat. He sat with the people doing Vicar of halal and haram.
Right. And this is why some of the setup said either Martin variable, Jennifer, if you pass by the circles of
the gardens in Paradise, then then take some,
you know, graze for a while. Right. And then they asked him what were the head of the real agenda? He said Hello, padico.
Right. And one of the great scholars of the set of murabaha said that it's hit a poo.
Valhalla will haraam right studying this is what people need. They need guidance. You know, so akuto Cody how that was tough for a lot lyric moody siren
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam RC then what have you been our rasulillah? One word
Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, Ramadan and mina shahara sobre mushara cm and Sophie that the shelter in Ramadan around the doors of Ramadan. This is a good time. One of the people the self he wants to pass by.
He wants to pass by somebody who was
reciting of singing and he this man was like somebody who
whatever he heard it reminded him of a lot so the man was singing about drinking alcohol you know he said that when that is thrown and and shall either either Sharona Minh Shabana well that was the shorba lady Kevin hardy or there shall be
no other care you know when the 20th of shadowbanned comes because Ramadan is coming you start drinking a lot, right because you have to give it up
and then he said and don't drink with small gardens drink with big bowls so you can get a lot so he heard that and he saw it as he had just turned 40 so he saw it as like his he's now at 40 and he just went to Mecca and became say
there's a story but we're no shutdown is here and just about in this shot ban, the people of Sham considered it a devotional night in mamma Rosa is madhhab has a name of no shadow ban the molecules in mathematic did not recognize it so there's a key laugh Don't get involved in the laugh I even though I Maliki ignore Rushden are the man who said whenever you have a laugh about the Rama Bala always go with the side that says there's more Rama so it's it's a good it's just I would use it as an opportunity to get some Baraka inshallah, the Nia is there in an American yet and it's meant for violence. So the hobbies are weak and things like that. But anyway, the people of Sham at the time
of the tablet in considered it a big night. So it's, it's coming I think tomorrow night.
Anyway, and then so this is a good time these next 15 days to prepare for Ramadan. I would if you haven't been reciting Quran on a regular basis I would try to start now so that when Ramadan comes you're already in the you know, in the momentum of it akuto Cody had was stuff that allowed you were a comedy central muslimeen in
