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

Coming

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

b2b don't

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

wanna worry about too

00:00:17--> 00:00:27

many. Su larrondo Hamad hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali Hassan nine, first year saramonic more

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

we're on the third part, I'll see you then a hudl Islam.

00:00:39--> 00:01:02

And these are the people who are giants. There are other giants that are created which we're going to discuss after this in a second in another session. These are the people who are giants and these are the people whom Allah azza wa jal had given a lot of power to and these are the people who are who have got Cigna who darussalam has been sent to them. And they are stubborn and arrogant in his in his way.

00:01:04--> 00:01:17

Now he's been calling them for years to throw him to the oneness of Allah azza wa jal has been telling them to believe in Allah azza wa jal as one. And they've been making numerous things against him.

00:01:19--> 00:02:00

One of the latest things that they said was that their gods have somehow afflicted him, and therefore he's become insane. And he's now acting the way he is. And he's saying the things he is because of the affliction of these of these other gods. Now, it follows on from there, I mean, we had a powerful statement by Satan, who's our esalaam saying that, you know, he depends upon Lazarus, and no one's going to be able to move him away from this pathway, he is going to stay in his work of Dharma, calling these people to the to the oneness of Allah azza wa jal now, they then said this isn't suitable are off and number 7271.

00:02:01--> 00:02:13

They didn't said, I did tena in a Buddha law Hahaha, one other Americana Budo Abba una una mattina. In conterminous otherkin. They said,

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

Have you really come to us ovoot.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

so that we may worship Allah alone? Have you come to us for this one purpose,

00:02:26--> 00:02:39

and that we may leave and forsake all those things that our father's forefathers used to worship?

00:02:40--> 00:03:07

If so, fatin adamantinoma, in contemnor, tsadikim bring about the punishment, go ahead and bring about the punishment that you tell us you keep on telling us that if we don't listen to you, Allah is going to afflict us, Allah is going to put us into a great punishment and so on. Since you are making that statement, we are asking you to bring the punishment. Now, there's a big lesson to be learned from this, which is

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

the effect that the fathers, the forefathers, the parents can have on the children

00:03:19--> 00:03:34

Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. He said, that kulu mo Ludin, you learn to idle for every child that is born is born on fitrah, which is a natural state and natural state

00:03:35--> 00:03:55

for Ababa, who you have with Danny, are you not see, Ronnie? Are you mad this Annie, it's only their parents that turn them and make them a Jew or make them a Christian or make them a fire worshipper, or whatever else it is. So what Rasulullah sallallahu is saying in essence is

00:03:57--> 00:04:26

that we have got every child that is born in a sense of pure oneness and pure purity. And there's no one that can affect that child, except for the very people who are nurturing that child. Those people who are nurturing that child, they may affect it. Now we know for example, now that there's many studies that have been done with the effects of children and parents and parents effect effects in children, there's been numerous studies, numerous tests that have been done.

00:04:28--> 00:04:37

A child is always looking at the things that his parents are doing and Alas, put into the nature of the child to please the parent.

00:04:38--> 00:04:47

And one of the things that was pretty put into child is to copy to just literally copy without even understanding why they're copying.

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

It it's a it's really fascinating to watch kids and how they how they copy. I remember just a few weeks back

00:05:01--> 00:05:09

You know, I just went to the sink, this is in a building, with my children under the sink, and I spot in the sink,

00:05:10--> 00:05:15

which was, you know, sort of a voodoo sort of area. And my son,

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

who's with me, he just spat in the sink as well.

00:05:21--> 00:06:00

Now, I looked at him straightaway, I thought, he's got no reason to spit in the sink. Because he's just seeing me, he wants to, he wants to do that he wants to do that. So what what it is, is that, wherever you're doing, you will find that the children want to imitate you, and they want to follow you right down to the US Muslims, and we have in our house, you have a masala and you do sujood, guaranteed each and every one of your children has put a hat on his head some time, or something or done a salute, and you're so fulfilled with enough pleasure and so on. But what you got understand is the way you're doing that in your house, in a Christian house, when the when the child sees that

00:06:00--> 00:06:44

there's Jesus and his mother and father worshiping Jesus, He will do the same thing, or Mary and the praying to the Mary or Jesus, they'll they'll do the same thing, guaranteed in a Hindu house where there are gods and the parents are worshiping those, the children will do those. Now, the point here is, there are many habits we've got from young age, which as we grow up, we like we've got this barrier. Now there's pros and cons to this barrier, we create a barrier within ourselves as we grow, and these habits are within us from what our parents have given us, we create this, this golden rule that certain things are not supposed to be questioned, is a natural human way of growth. And unless

00:06:44--> 00:06:59

done that for a reason, because if you were to grow, imagine, imagine your child and you to grow. And you were to like, look at your parents doing something and you thought I'm not following them. Right? You're only you're only two three years old, right? I'm not following them. Not gonna do

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

on a Why, why they're doing it.

00:07:04--> 00:07:28

Now, if I did you see them eating, dressing, drinking habits, known behaviors, language, the way they talk all the time, you think they're speaking Cockney, I'm going to speak American English, that I've learned that tone, you know, I'm going to do something really different. At the age of three or four, you know, what we would end up with, if you had those kind of kids growing up, we'd end up with parents not wanting children anymore.

00:07:29--> 00:08:14

because they'd be like, they'd be like aliens in your house. He just wouldn't know what they will do next. You know, you're trying to tell them knife is dangerous, and don't go near the knife? And they said, Yeah, really? How dangerous? Please, let me test it, you know, you'd be going crazy thinking what on earth is wrong with each other? How do you how do you control them? Now, a lot put into the fitrah, that they must copy follow you so that you are able to be with them in a way that suits you suits and keeps you happy, keeps them happy as well. And you can see children, they will copy you in every smoothie every minute, they'll mimic you and every little thing, even right down to the way

00:08:14--> 00:08:36

you say a word the way you the tone the tune the way you say you said, I know families and houses, you know, sometimes the children suddenly they say do you know i'd say to me that, you know, shadows, they'll say, our kids, you know, my kid is starting to shower? And is this not? You know, one of the first questions I might ask rudely asked but rightly asked, Is that are you and your wife shouting?

00:08:38--> 00:09:18

Because I'm telling you where arguments take place. Where there's things that take place, you'll see straightaway, it will see through the children right down to the normals have is now what I really want to get down to here is there's a there's a golden rule we make that we're not supposed to question certain things in our subconscious mind. We don't want to question them. And one of them is is here, which is our forefathers had been doing something all the while and are you trying to say that they are wrong? How can they be wrong? On what grounds can they be wrong? Now put it this way we've got all of us are the product of our forefathers, all of us. There's no one here that's going

00:09:18--> 00:09:56

to say to me that I've completely got rid of everything that my forefathers have, have told me you can't, you just cannot. But what we're talking about here is an archy the issue we're talking about a belief issue of belief, issue of wanting to see whether they can give up an inherent belief that they've grown up with which which is that these gods are things that will benefit them and they can hear them they can see them and they will do things for them. Now they say they use the word another U turn to tell us that we were supposed to forsake This is not like not true not true would mean that we just leave them by saying another are they trying to say that are you trying to say that we

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

completely abandon these gods you trying to say that nothing

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

These Gods is true. Because what they're really trying to say to who these alayhis salaam and this is what most of them said to the prophets. If you're trying to say that these gods,

00:10:12--> 00:10:20

we should leave them which our forefathers worship, then you're trying to say that our forefathers were wrong.

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

And if they were wrong,

00:10:24--> 00:10:36

then they did something. which didn't make sense. And if you're going to say that our forefathers did something that didn't make sense, you're trying to say that our forefathers are stupid.

00:10:37--> 00:10:48

You don't say that they're foolish, you're trying to say they were ignorant, you're trying to say that they didn't know you're trying to say that jar him you're trying to say that they're foolish what they did, you're trying to swear at our forefathers.

00:10:49--> 00:11:32

Now, can you see how what's happened here is, let me just tell you one thing, when a man has got no argument of reason, he will resort to the primitive nature of emotion. So you know, when when somebody can reason with you, and somebody can't beat you in argument with with saying, Okay, let's logically look at the situation when they can't beat you, they will resort to emotions, they'll get very emotional. Now, what you can see here is they're not bringing an emotional argument. They're saying, you trying to say that our forefathers were dumb. So why don't you just go ahead and just bring the punishment that you're talking about? Don't go ahead, go. Now this is emotional talk. When

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

when I put when a people resort to emotional talk,

00:11:36--> 00:12:13

there's not much you can do with them. Except that you allow them to calm down. There's not much you can do that is very dangerous grounds to carry on talking to people who've not been emotionally happens in our houses. You know, sometimes you get into an argument with your brother, sister, mother, whoever else is your son, your daughter, but you know, there's a little dispute, when it gets to the emotion level is almost like no win situation on both parties. Because as long as emotions in the way, you're not reasoning, you're not really using your your mind intellect now, what the prophets were told to say,

00:12:14--> 00:12:50

were things that would go against the emotions. So like, if you look into the Quran, you will find, find that Rasulullah sallallahu was told when this argument was presented to him, he said, I will know about whom la Yaki Lucia you know, what, even if the forefathers weren't guided, they will still follow them. Or Allah said that even if their forefathers were going towards Hellfire, they're going to they're going to follow them. So they were there were questions about Okay, now let's you think about the direction you're getting emotional. Now think about what's going to happen if you carry on following your forefathers blindly. In the end, the consequence is that you're going to end

00:12:50--> 00:12:57

up with them wherever they are, and if they're going to the fire then you're going to the fire as well with them. So thing can stop. Now here, Satan who died Salaam

00:12:58--> 00:13:01

he was told by Allah azza wa jal

00:13:03--> 00:13:11

to notify them that they're going to face Allah's Roth, his anger, they're going to face punishment.

00:13:13--> 00:13:37

And he still had another argument with them. His argument was, and if you look in the same verse, who the RF is number 7271, you'll find it. He said, to Jay delude and aefi. Asthma in some may two more, and two more Abba okuma anzahl Allahu Manas, Allah hope you're having some fun. He said, Okay, let's imagine you had you had a God that God name was, you know,

00:13:39--> 00:13:43

let's say that God's name was horrible or something, right? Let's just say the God's name, for argument's sake right.

00:13:45--> 00:13:49

Now, if what they're saying is a God,

00:13:50--> 00:14:37

they say they didn't say, who is the God of Germany or something. So when you need to make a journey, you need to go to the God of Google. And they may make another one lot or is that is I'm talking to some of the gods they had in Makkah in the province of Allah and they say, well, this one is for rains, when you want to drain you come to this God. And when you want it to, when you want to have children, you go to that God, so they associated certain powers with certain gods. So first, you had a name, and with the name, they made a power. And that power itself became so deep in the minds of people is that they believed in this real power coming from these gods. So what Satan or

00:14:37--> 00:14:48

who that was saying here is saying, we're saying that, are you? are you arguing with me on certain names? So he's saying that Okay, you got who you got.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

He didn't say who will and Latinos, they had other names, whatever the names were in there in that time, but he was saying that these names that you're presenting to me

00:15:01--> 00:15:04

These names, are you saying that

00:15:06--> 00:15:33

they are real powerful entities just because your father's and yourselves gave a name to them? What does the name mean? And how do you really get power to a name? The only way you get power to a name is that there's actual power on the ground. Otherwise, and name itself don't give no power. All right, so let me give you an example. You've got many names in this

00:15:34--> 00:15:40

in this society, and these names, you know, almost have kind of a power.

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

Can anyone tell me what what kind of things I'm talking about?

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

I don't

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

have an idea. No.

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

Sorry. No, no, no. Just named simple names.

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

brand names because that brand names

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

now you get in front of a certain brand names. Give me a brand name.

00:16:11--> 00:16:27

Nike, or you might say, I don't know, Caterpillar, or what else. Gucci is another. Okay. So apple and whatever else now this name, it's a name. Yes, we do know that they've got a big entity behind them.

00:16:28--> 00:16:34

But the power of these things are not inside the name itself.

00:16:35--> 00:16:42

The power in most of them are, it's basically in what people have made them to be.

00:16:44--> 00:17:23

And whether you're going to see I'm going to explain to you what I mean here. And there's a big powerful message here from what say they know who that person is trying to tell them. I know he's talking about their gods that they made the names and they associated powers with them. But we've got to try and take a lesson from this. Now the lesson we taking from this is that for example, you see an advert and you see this advert with these children and these children has a name and that name whatever name it might be, give me a deodorant name one guys sorry, right God right so right god Okay, so you see right God and you see right God as you know, we see the shape of right God you

00:17:23--> 00:18:04

see the color right God you see the brand name of it, and you see the way it's written. And you see it on TV and it's like, right God and this man, you know, who's who's using right God? Well, they're not going to show a wimpy skinny man who's just about walking in the bathroom using right God. They're gonna show a man who's muscular who's like the macho man who's the man everybody wants to be all the muscles he's got the he's got the right color of skin is he's going to have Shannon he is the one that uses right guard. So he's like, why are you use right guard? And maybe you might pop up muscles like him? You wish. Right? So that's showing you that now they show you the brand after

00:18:04--> 00:18:49

brand so when you go see billboard you see right guard, and you see the Billboard and you see the same right guard on the same man or some other man, they're using it. And then you go find you. You've been hit by these adverts of right guard. Now you go to the shop, you go to boots. And you see on the shelf, you looking for a deodorant, and you see right God and you see a normal boots, and non frill whatever deodorant right now straight away. Most people 80 to 90% of people will say that other name their boots, own deodorant, or something else is rubbish. It doesn't mean anything. And then it's the right guard. Yeah, you know, that's got value. And the other thing is value would be

00:18:49--> 00:19:35

right guard might be 12 pounds. I'm just giving you an random figure down by regard on us, right God, but just for the brothers at it, and it's got a certain price to it. And the other one is cheaper. So straightaway, your minds going to say Yeah, right. God's expensive because it's got something inside it. Now if you really to look at right God and the other one, you'd really need to look at the contents. It's not about the it's not about the shape. is not about the packaging is not about the bottle is not about how the presented to you is not about the pricing. It's about what's inside it and the effects of it and the benefits of it and the objective of why you'd want to get it

00:19:35--> 00:20:00

now these are questions nobody asks 9080 90% of people won't even ask that. They go and buy you know you can buy the normal in the morning for breakfast cereal, you will most like most people buy 85% these are real studies. 85% of people will actually buy the brand name the things they find on TV, they'll go and buy that that's the first thing on their mind and they look at it as

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Yeah, I know that I've seen that, you know that woman on TV ate that and she was smiling. So that means I must be smiling after it as well. And without even thinking is going to make them buy. Now, the thing is, if you take the packaging away, what's inside that one, and what's inside another product is more or less the same. In fact, sometimes when you look at the ingredients, you will find out that the one that's cheaper, give you more, add the added value for money. Sometimes the ingredients there are better than the one that's more expensive. Sometimes it's a lot more better for your body because they've got something harmful or could be potentially harmful. And the other

00:20:38--> 00:21:16

one that people don't want to read, people don't want to look inside. Now what you're doing there is you're seriously questioning the name, the name, there would not mean anything to you, if you were to really look at a product to say, Well, I want to find out what's most beneficial to me. I don't want to just find out what's gonna be the most appealing to me, not the most appealing but the most beneficial. Now what say, you know who that I Salaam is saying is that you got to look at the benefit of your actions today. For in regards to tomorrow, not to do with whether someone's giving you a big name. Like right now actually, most of society is running with these names. They're

00:21:16--> 00:21:36

running with a name like football has become a big, big, you know, it's a commodity. It's a selling technique. I tell you, people who are drenched in football and following 18 first thing is football just again, nothing more than a game. Right? To me, football is a ball.

00:21:37--> 00:22:14

Right? You just kick the ball and have a bit of exercise. have a bit of fun and exercise. There's a goalpost as a goalpost here, it's basically we're gonna have some fun together. And I'm going to try and kick it with my team over there in there and you can try and kick it over here. There's no win no losses, no, someone's gonna win that's fine. But the main thing for me would be if I'm going to play football is that I want some exercise out of you and that's it right friendly match and even if I lost five nil, you know it's not about the tees afterwards or whatever. How am I going to get teased is literally about just playing now what they've done to football is they're branded the

00:22:14--> 00:22:55

bowls that branded the players they're advertised the matches that branded the whole you know the arenas that they've got football arenas the stadiums of God, they've made it you know the colors the certain colors associated to certain teams you don't understand that it's having an effect straightaway you know Chelsea being blue and Tottenham being white and Arsenal being red right? Right. You don't think of a blue Arsenal Do you? Hey, guys, hello. You don't think of blue as normal and an N A? Red Chelsea? Do you? Come on guys? Hello, trying to imagine it? You can't because they've always branded to you at a certain way with certain colors. So what happens is that color of

00:22:55--> 00:23:15

the arsenal color and the way the way in spurs Tottenham whatever is written in a Chelsea is written that that appeals to you. And it's not that it's the players. It's the talent. It's the it's everything that we did that comes to the whole package is the managers the team is the winds is the thrill is the carpets. Is this the moment everyone's talking about, oh, yeah.

00:23:16--> 00:24:00

I want to be last time. And guess what? It's a name. As knows the name, just to just name and what Satan who is trying to say to these people, and we try to take a lesson from here is what happens after his time the guys, you watch football for 1520 2530 years, you follow your team like proper, proper Khalid, you know, you didn't take lead of your of your team, you followed them you went to their wherever they played home or away you went and played and you follow them for 25 3040 years of your life. And you even lost your voice when you screamed and yelled at them winning a match. And you bought yourself a 60 inch plasma to try and watch them with your mates and you bought their

00:24:00--> 00:24:33

shirts and you got it signed. You got the autograph and you did that and you even went to the opposite stadium and you spat out there. You know that's what they do as well apparently. Yeah. And you did everything that's in the books of trying to be crazy for football and after 40 years, right? You're old. Right? You're an old man and you're a supporter wherever it was, you know? And now forget kicking a football you thinking come to the masjid you thinking Am I gonna live to get back home or I'm gonna drop dead on the way back from the most that's how old I am. Right? What did the benefit you

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

What did his name and the brand and the wow factors and the whole of the you know the whole people being after thrilled and overjoyed and you know, support all those crazy shout outs and all that what it benefits you nothing in the end. The same way all these brands that are out there, all these names that are out there many I'm talking to hundreds and hundreds of names that are out there.

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Make people you know, act in a certain way behave in a certain way, think in a certain way, right? What is that benefit them in the end? Nothing.

00:25:11--> 00:25:53

The real benefit is if people can be switched on and they can decide, you know, this, this thing to decide, is not an all people, a lot of you, every every person is born with the guys don't get me wrong, we're all born with the aspect of making a decision, but to make a decision where you can independently think when others are going against you. But you feel it's right. Allahu Akbar, this is something which, which is a huge step, a huge step that allows origin has a huge, huge characteristical has given you now what I want to say to all of all of you who are listening here is, you know, that the act of becoming a practicing Muslim, the act of becoming more of a practicing

00:25:53--> 00:26:34

Muslim, the act of deciding that you know what, I've got this bad habit that I want to get rid of, it's a really bad habit I've had for years, whatever habit that is, for years to actually get your mind to say, I don't care, I'm going to get rid of this bad habit to do that is real benefit. To stay with the crowd to stay with what your forefathers did, to carry on doing things the same way as everybody did. You might be an I might be going in a direction that might not be beneficial for us at all. He then said, are you arguing with me about this name, which you and your forefathers gave names off to these things, these entities you gave names? Man, Asilomar will be having so far, when

00:26:34--> 00:26:56

it comes to real believes Allah hasn't given you a certificate, he hasn't given you an a real guarantee, he hasn't given you any book, nothing that has come from the skies to tell you that they've got any benefit. They can give you any harm that can prevent you from yet you believe just in the pure names and you are motivated and moved by them? What evidence do you have?

00:26:58--> 00:27:28

And that was it. There was not there was no answer. He said from zero. Do you want to punishment? You wait in the mockumentary mentality, am also waiting with yourselves. Now, what I want to say to you is guys, you know, but just by listening to say you know who that is. And there are deeper things, I want to tell you that you know this thing about your forefathers did something, you know, our whole society, there are so many things that are happening and we'll all just move along with it.

00:27:29--> 00:27:39

And people don't want to really question or think differently, I'll give you I'll give you I'll give you an example, you will know that there are you know,

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

there are many charities in this in this

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

in this country.

00:27:47--> 00:28:06

And they're all doing the charitable sort of work to try and get relief for the people who've got disasters abroad. And it's a great it's a real need, you know, if we didn't have the charities, this money wouldn't reach those people who are who are struck with in a famine, with disease with walls with whatever else is happening. melasma will give them relief. I mean,

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

however, right now in Britain,

00:28:12--> 00:28:15

we've got women that are affected.

00:28:16--> 00:28:18

You've got children are affected.

00:28:19--> 00:29:02

We've got young people that are vulnerable. We've got people who are homeless, Muslims, non Muslims, I'm not just talking about non Muslim Muslims. We've got Muslim in houses that are on fire, in terms of the people who are leaving the deed. We've got people who are abandoning their faith, people who are beating their own parents up. And then you've got cases that come like this. You've got people who are marrying outside of the religion and losing their faith. You've got people who are in a Muslim children who are on drugs and you know, who are runaways from their homes, and you've got those who are completely, you know, aloof from the whole of the master. You know, like, I'll give

00:29:02--> 00:29:50

you stats here. The children that come to the masjid of the society, they are only about 30% maximum of the Muslims that live in the society, those who are really Muslims, but 30% of them come to the to the masjid. I think there's about 60 to 70% of them that don't even come to the masjid. And you can look in any society like for example, we know there's so many you know, Turkish Muslims, right around here. We got to say that Muslims as well, we know there's so many you know, Muslims out there that have certain backgrounds, they don't come to the mosque, but the question is, the real question is, me and you and most of society, our donations that when it comes out, we are we are looking for

00:29:50--> 00:29:54

the most popular donations that are being made.

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

And it's like okay, Philistine, I'm

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

I say don't give please don't get me wrong. We should give to all of these. But I want you to think on another platform with me. We give two fallacies we give to Syria we will given you give it to Pakistan we given to Kashmir we give to Afghanistan or Iraq and all these other places, you know, you give you give us outside abroad, you as a car to South Korea, lilla, wherever it goes out.

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

Most people

00:30:23--> 00:30:27

have not even focused on the trouble that we've got on our own land here.

00:30:28--> 00:30:36

They're not even thinking about it. And even when they know there is a problem is like, okay, somebody else will deal with it. Because not everyone's doing it, I don't want to do it.

00:30:38--> 00:30:45

Most people who are giving outside are not even thinking about these issues. And those few that are.

00:30:47--> 00:31:26

Those few that are, they're very limited. And even then they're not. They're not brought together in any kind of organization that can look after the needs of this. And in the midst of all of that, what I want to say to you is we're losing in a big way we're losing, because our own kids around, you know, there are women who are who are widows who are, you know, single mothers who are divorcees who are, you know, women who are who got nowhere to go who have been thrown out, the homes were to run away because of forced marriages who had run away because of arranged marriages who've gone through the hundreds of cases, if you start looking, you will find them. There are Muslim children

00:31:27--> 00:31:36

who have been given Muslim children because of the parents have divorced, they've been taken away by social services. And then they've been given to

00:31:37--> 00:32:07

they've been given away, as, you know, orphans, as those who you know, people are adopting. There's even a case. And it's true, guys, when I met a Muslim social worker, about two weeks ago, I had a conversation with him, I met today, a whole group of people that will talk about many of these shoes that I bought with each day, that so Muslim social worker said to me that those two Muslim children were adopted by

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

two women

00:32:11--> 00:32:51

who are in a relationship with each other. You know, what I'm trying to say? to women who are in a relationship with each other, they have adopted these two Muslim children. Can you imagine the girl when she grows up the boy when he grows up what we're supposed to think and be, and we've got these problems on our land, on our turf. And because we think just like our forefathers, everyone else in all the society, the way everyone's running a house, you know, we're all running in the same same thing. You know, there are only few of us that think different want to act different, that want to move different from the benefit that I said to you, like when you say, you know, who the lesson was

00:32:51--> 00:33:26

saying that the real benefit of us to think what's going to happen afterwards? The real benefit is to think what were your parents doing when they were worshipping these idols? The real benefit is to think what's gonna happen to you after you die. These are real questions when saved in a huddle. So I'm trying to say get away from names get away from forefathers get away from society. Think for yourself. What I'm trying to say to you, the lesson we learn from here is guys, we need to wake up an hour an hour waking up is when we will make a move. Like if I if I was to stand up and say, let's raise money for a Masjid. And if I was to stand another day, with yourself or with any other

00:33:26--> 00:34:05

community and say, let's raise monies for let's say, these children, these divorcees, these people who are you know, who are really in need, I can guarantee you that the donation on an average day, I could get from you about, you know, 400 to 800 pounds in an instant offer any Salah I could get from you. These are real stats of giving you any time, a person comes from donation, they will walk away with about three 400 pounds, right, maybe move this day for the day, and they do that for us or for Muslims. But if I was to stand for one of these other issues that are real necessities, that is a real need that's on the home turf,

00:34:06--> 00:34:48

I could probably say will probably not get more than 100 pounds, a quarter of what I'm saying maybe even then, if I if the first time I said it, I probably get something. Second time. Third time, I think it will fall on deaf ears. Because it's like, well, no, not everybody's doing it. Well, who wants to swallow? Like when you look at the story of, you know, I know I've drifted off a bit from the actual thing, but it's really important that we we get this message across, say tuna, avocado, the alarm on one of his qualities was that he looked at the Sahaba. And he looked at what they did. And he tried to find apart from doing the same things they were doing because like they were given

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

subject every day. He was giving stuff every day. He was matching all of that. But he was looking beyond that. And he was looking at those things that nobody else would actually do. And he would try and do that.

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

Without anyone knowing that he's gone in that direction. And that's that's something which handler that is Rasulullah sallallahu Sunnah. And it's a lost sooner, which people have forgotten like when, when the day when he was taking to Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. And he came running to his wife, I shudder to to hadiza de la Juana. And she said a few qualities of him. Uh, one of the things she said is, you go and look for the missing person. Now, that's not a quality in anyone. She said, you go, and you look for the one who's missing. Now, you know, you've been coming here for the Holocaust every Wednesday, who actually sits in things. You know, that brother used to come? He's not really

00:35:45--> 00:36:20

coming down. The sister used to come She's not coming out. I wonder where they are. I wonder if I can contact them. I wonder if I can find them. And to go out your way to find your sister or brother? Are you okay? Is everything okay? With you? I haven't seen you in the masjid. Or let's say you come for prayers if the who comes for further to shine, actually is vigilant, watching you know, registering who's coming not because you're going to stand with a with a register afterwards in our Brava didn't see for fudger today, you know, I was there a time I'm the man with a nice sewer but didn't see you. I was in bed today. You know, I mean not to have a jab at them. But to find that

00:36:20--> 00:36:53

says the sooner the process is to find that if there's anything wrong with them, they said a further time when Rasulullah sallallahu was finished, he would use the spear. And he would look around and he would register, he would register straightaway. who wasn't there forget who is there, most of us would know who is that he raised the who is in there. And then if they didn't turn up for a couple of days, three days or whatever, he would be able to say where it's on. So like, you know, when hunger law disappeared from me this assignee had his body. He knew that handler wasn't coming to government. So he sent say, the number worker to go and find a handler. And that's because of the

00:36:53--> 00:37:14

student of the professor Larson. Now, Susan Abu Bakr radi Allahu took the signal from the professor Laura Allison. And it's a beautiful story of Satan or mode one, this is after the demise of the result of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So what happens is say that our model, says a worker who leads the first fudger prayer, and after he leaves the further prayer,

00:37:15--> 00:37:33

say the novel worker, on the other hand, who you know, is with people for a bit of time, and then when everyone's sort of dispersed and the gone to do their own duties say that the worker also discusses with them and he's going to do some of his, however, say that Omar, his eyes were unsaved and Abu Bakr all the time.

00:37:34--> 00:38:02

There's one man he needed to beat. And if he could beat he would be in ahead of this whole oma of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So his eyes were always on him. And he noticed that when everyone had dispersed every morning, he couldn't find satana Abubakar. So one day what he decided to do one morning is when say that avocado the alarm on who he left, say that or Omar, in a good way, started to follow him

00:38:03--> 00:38:45

started to stalk him. Right? Not in a bad way, in a good way. So what he did is as a networker was leaving, he was hiding behind a drama, he was hiding behind every tree, every rock and he was following Satan, I will proceed. What does he do? Where does he go? What is he up to? So he watches him what he follows him follows him follows him follows him to the outskirts of Medina. Until they come to a small cottage in the middle of nowhere. And say, then I walk around goes to that cottage, he knocks on the door and say the number is watching from behind the rock somewhere to see, you know, what he What is he doing? Where is he? Where is he appeared. So say that I work with an oxen

00:38:45--> 00:39:01

and he enters and then he spends a good while there. Until say that I will come back out. And then he's off to Medina. And this time said Rama hides way to say that I've worked on passes passes by, and then say the number of the alarm, he then goes up to the door, and he knocks on the door.

00:39:02--> 00:39:09

And the voice comes from inside of an old woman that says, you know, come in the doors open you should know.

00:39:10--> 00:39:27

So he pushes the door open. He comes in, he sees a just one room. There's an old woman in here. There's nobody else in here. And it's shocked what Sandra Walker comes to this old woman's house, you know, like what on earth is happening here?

00:39:29--> 00:39:47

And he said to the old woman who says now Omar said to go over an old woman. Who are you? And what was that man doing here? Just before I came in? She said Well, I don't know him. She thought What? She don't even know him. She said Well, I'm blind.

00:39:49--> 00:40:00

I'm blind. I'm a blind woman. And I don't know him. I've never seen him but he comes every morning at this

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Time, say that almost said, I'll be alone who said,

00:40:04--> 00:40:31

What does he do? And she said, that man has been coming for so many days. And what he does is he comes in, he cleans my house for me. He washes my dishes for me. He puts everything right. He brings me anything find needed. I'm an old woman, I'm blind, I can't travel, I can't shop, I can't do anything else. But he comes and does that. And I don't even know his name.

00:40:33--> 00:40:36

Allah, I don't even know his name.

00:40:37--> 00:40:56

And save. Now you can imagine the effect on saving our model the Alona when he saw this and he went back my point of saying this to you is that say the novel worker, the Alon, who is looking at those things that not others are willing to do or thinking to do, or wanting to even think about.

00:40:57--> 00:41:08

And this is a man who has his mind in the right place. He has his head screwed on tight, he knows the real benefit of pleasing Allah azza wa jal,

00:41:09--> 00:41:51

the lesson for us is that after least listening to what say, the know who the LLM said to his to his people. And listen to the story of say, the Narmada and say, the Navajo, the Allahumma, is to say, hallelujah, I love him to say that we've got to start looking at the things that people are not doing as normal. And he says, We've got to wake up because our subconscious mind will tell us just carry on as normal. You carry on as normal, your normal life, you know, you work whatever, yeah, when you come in and socially meet each other, just give you a donut show do something for someone, wherever, where they, where they basically I've found where the norm is where everyone's doing

00:41:51--> 00:41:58

something, just do the normal thing, and everyone gives themselves a pat on the back. What I want to come to next is

00:42:00--> 00:42:04

when you had this happening,

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

and this whole situation arose, they even became arrogant and they said, Man, shut the mean now

00:42:16--> 00:42:22

they challenge say say that now who then they said who is more stronger than us in might and power.

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

Who

00:42:25--> 00:42:45

and they were obviously you know, they were giants. Now this you will find in Surah Hanuman sajida, or the 41st surah of the Quran, and about iron number eight to about 10 just look around the you find this ayah they challenged say you know who to say well, who's who's more stronger than than us. So you know, who then said, Do you not see?

00:42:46--> 00:42:56

Allah de Hala? kakum Hua shadowman kokua? Do you not see that the one who has created you must be more powerful than you?

00:42:57--> 00:43:41

is logical, right? The one who created you as giants, he has to be more powerful than you. He can't be equal to you or less than you in strength. And again, they lost the argument, we just because of the mighty power. Now, the other amazing thing about it is, why did Allah bring this story in the Quran from from all the other prophets that were sent because there are about 124,000 prophets that were sent to the earth? Why these few stories that we've got? Well, every story you'll notice that a people on one particular reason went towards Devi, not towards being deviated, they lost the path because one particular reason these people it was because of the might and power.

00:43:42--> 00:44:00

It was the miton power, their strength, what you will realize in today's world is there are certain people who have got the miton power and they will actually think well, no one can beat us in this. We are on top of all people so we can do what we want. Now say that they asked for the punishment, Allah azza wa jal then

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

stop their sufferings.

00:44:05--> 00:44:47

Because you think about it. What Why, why are these people arrogant? Why, why would your son we have another our sons daughters and so on? Sometimes they become arrogant. And they say, Well, you know, don't want to do it. It's my right. My civil liberty. You know, you hear all kinds of languages. I was just talking to a to a brother just after the Salah. And we were saying that, you know about the issue of anger is quite hot at the moment it was dying down now. That you know, there are women out there saying that it's our human right, to wear these niqab freedom of expression, and Muslim sisters are going out then saying that? Well, it's a bit of a danger in them. The danger is that

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

when you say it's your freedom of expression to wear the niqab or to wear the hijab, it's the You're right, you're human right. Well imagine one day your daughter grows up and says to

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

Ma'am, I'm wearing my tights on my show my short skirt, because it's by human right. I'm not gonna wear hijab because it's my human right? Is my civil liberties, ma'am. Just like you want to wear niqab and it's a human right? I want to wear a low top as a human right.

00:45:21--> 00:45:37

You know, it's a double edged sword. We don't go down that pathway of using it as a human right now we say it's a religious command of God. There's nothing wrong in telling these people, these people don't believe in God, fine. that's their problem. Seriously, that's the problem.

00:45:38--> 00:46:13

Most of the debates that picking up with us is on the issue of whether you believe in God or not, that's what the crux of it comes, we should stand up say, look, God told me to do it. That's it, I'm gonna do it. There was a say, Well, if he goes to whether God is true or right to exist, that's a separate debate. But God told me to do something that's what I'm doing it I mean, it's not to do with whether me is a human being I think is my right and my moral Rama conscious or my ethical, right, my destroyed my soul, social, right, my whatever is not to do with that he's told me to behave in a certain way and to be to act in certain ways. That's why I'm doing it. And when you come

00:46:13--> 00:46:40

to that, if you stand up wanting to say, this is gonna say, at the end of the day, this can say, a load of fundamentalists or call me what you want, call me what you want, call me backward, call me stupid, call me, you know, whatever. But, and I like that one a woman's answer. I think when she was given a Nobel Prize, or something, she was with Hillary Clinton at that time. And one of the journalists said to her, you know, she had a full time job, Rhonda can't remember her name.

00:46:42--> 00:46:45

And one of the reporters said at that time said,

00:46:47--> 00:47:13

you know, you're such a smart woman. Right? So smart woman, had it not been for the veil around your head, something along those lines and said to him, why that veil? You know, why isn't it a sign of backwardness? And whatever. So she gave a beautiful answer. She said that men, when men were created, they will create a primitive, and they were created naked. And then they learned how to close themselves.

00:47:14--> 00:47:51

And today, what I'm how I'm closing myself, is the prime of man's intellect. And if I brought myself down, that I'm going back to the primitive ages, right, it's beautiful answer that that she gave to them. But the problem, the real thing is that we're supposed to say that it's a religious right. Now what I was going to get to you is that you got a son or a daughter, and they become arrogant. How are you supposed to, you know how you're supposed to deal with them. But Allah Allah has given us has given us a real lesson. No, I get calls from left, right and center about all sorts of problems as any man, you'd get that and I know so many of the mom get that as well. One of the things is

00:47:51--> 00:48:21

that, you know, they say my son is not listening to me. My son does what he wants my son like, you know, he comes home when he wants, he goes when he wants, you know, the first question. I say, well, your son got the key to your house, whose houses he says is my house. I said, Well, if it's your house, fine. How did you send this coming? And God, does he come to the window? Does he break the window every time he comes in or not? I mean, you must have given the key. Yes, I did give the key. Okay. So you've given him the key? Yes. To the house. Yes, I have. I said you must have given him a mobile phone. He said yes. I have given a mobile phone. It must be a smartphone. He said yes. a

00:48:21--> 00:48:52

smartphone. Yeah. So good. I said, Okay, so he goes in when he wants he comes in when he wants and giving you trouble is giving your wife trouble. Isn't that and you come to me to ask? Yeah, fine, fine. Then I start asking I say okay, what is your wife cook for him everyday, you know, this is normal. What we eat? Yeah. So you must be like curries and three cards on the table isn't that and even if your son comes one o'clock in the night, I can guarantee that your wife is probably up worried about him and coming downstairs taking the food out of the fridge woman up in the microwave, and given to you son and saying son, son, son, don't do it. Don't do it. You know, is that right?

00:48:53--> 00:49:30

And he's like, Well, you know, you tell her not to do it. But she still does it. Fine. But she your son still gets you know, looked after by the end of the night, right yet? He still got a bed in your house, isn't it? Yes. And he sleeps on the bed? Yes, yes. Well, actually the solution to this solution, very simple. kick him out. 10 you can go outside and go find a hotel Linda for a few days. Take care of him. Well, what do you do you give him a key. You've given her a bed, nice, comfortable mattress, food on the table. He can eat when he wants, he can come when he wants. He can sleep when he wants. He can go to the toilet when he wants and then you complain to me that your son's not

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

listened to you. The thing to do is to strain him.

00:49:34--> 00:49:59

Tell him what is he doing? These are your rules, his rules who's in charge of the house. Now, a long time ago you should have done this. You and your wife should have got together and said well enough is enough. You know Yes, we've got a blood relationship here but you've got to find a place out there. You either rent out they're gonna live where you are gonna live how you want come pay the rent, and I mean look, your son doesn't pay bills. His clothes are looked after his clothes are washed by his mom. She still puts them into the washing machine. She drives them. She

00:50:00--> 00:50:15

Probably them, it was really bad. And then he wears them he hasn't seen a smart look wherever he's able to have all this money because of the system that you've got in your house. And that's why he's doing what he's doing. Now the simple thing what I said to him is

00:50:16--> 00:50:26

simple simple thing what I said to him is, you pull it up now why am I saying this is because Allah azza wa jal did the same thing to say isn't a Saison a who de la silabs people.

00:50:27--> 00:51:03

The reason why many of us are not listened to allies because Allah feeds us. Allah feeds us every day Allah gives a drink every day Allah closes every day. Allah gives us a nice sleep every night Allah gives us a nice salary. Allah gives us a nice you know place to live in our lives as a woman has a nice wife nice children. I like it is nice, nice, comfortable life. And the comfort is so much just like a spoiled brat in the house the kid the same way some of us don't want to listen to Allah now. Why should I? Why should I pray? I don't feel like I'm retired. Well, if you never had the near mavala if you never had that in your life, there's no way you disobey Allah. So what did I want to

00:51:03--> 00:51:08

do? Allah said okay, I'll just take my reins away. Allah started raining on these people.

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

No more rain. Now once the rain stop what happens?

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

What happens?

00:51:16--> 00:51:23

Well, the the the crops are not going to grow the vegetation is gonna grow and grow the greenness is totally disappear. What happens when the greenness disappears?

00:51:24--> 00:51:27

What happens when the vegetables and the crops and all that start to die? What happens

00:51:29--> 00:51:32

when the process is not a quick album? Can you have that quick?

00:51:33--> 00:52:02

He first when the rain stop the plants the grass don't grow. When that doesn't grow. The animals can feed when the animals can feed and they die. Then man is left without vegetation without the animals right. He's left without food when he gets to the stomach here. Then you got to bow down to Allah. So Allah stopped that so that they could turn back to him but you know, inshallah, next week we'll finish off this. This story, inshallah.

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

It's actually a drought of three years that lasted. inshallah, we'll talk about next
