wanna worry about too
many not 100 100 171
Okay, now see them? No Holly, Sarah, Sarah, I'm one of the last things that we discussed about him was that he
was told, he actually said to his people in a nosy makuha locker room, am I going to actually force you to take this message? When you don't want to take this message, if you look around Surah Hood
surah number 11 and number 28 to 27 to about 31 you will find all this discussion over there. Right so sweet number 11 and number 2627, and so on, you'll find discussion. One of the things they wanted to do they wanted say that analysis them to do is
one of you that were confused with was that why is it that you have to be the specific person who has mercy? Why is it that you You are the specific person who has mercy and why is it that nobody else is? is receiving this mercy? So this is where Satan on wireless ram he says you're calm. He says oh my people are item suppose in control urbinati Robbie say if I was on the guidance from my Lord, we're attorney Rama tamina nd and if my if, if Allah azza wa jal gave me a mercy from himself for only attalla COMM And this mercy whatever, like give me guidance had given me was something that you were blind to that you was made blind to yourselves, then would i would i have to still force
you to take this message on board? And then he said, so so the one of the things was that the guidance of Allah azza wa jal is there and that these people wouldn't be able to see the guidance. Now one great Dr. To always say to a lot of gentlemen sooner the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is Allahumma Arenal haka, haka was zucchini Teva. Allahumma, adenine, haka, zucchini tiba, which is R, la, la, la me, show me and Hakka, Hakka show me the truth in its true form. Because sometimes people can see the truth, but they might see it as false. So, show me the truth in its real form. So that I see the truth is truth. I don't see truth is false. It was zucchini, and grant me a T bar mitzvah,
grant me the following of that truth, grant me the ability to be part of that truth and to follow that, that truth and to pursue that truth. And then he said, allow him What I didn't even I didn't even bother till about the law. And show me falsehood, as falsehood so adamant about will about law, show me falsehood in its real form again, so that I don't see full suit. And I think it's a truth. And I'm not, you know, I'm not with my eyes to see the wrong thing, or to believe the wrong thing was zucchini ish tenaga or niche de nada, and grant me the abstinence from that thing from, from being with falsehood. Make me stay away from that. Now these these beautiful duar if you if you
analyze it, what it's what it's telling us is that so many people are misguided because they believe to be the truth, what is falsehood? And you can see what say there are no AlHassan hymns, him saying to his people, in come to Alabama tomorrow, you know, I've got an evidence from my Lord. And a clear clear by no means a very, very clear sign from my Lord. That is the truth. And he's given me mercy. And this has become something blind to yourself, Am I going to force it upon you for you to believe this? Now, one thing straightaway is quite clear. And allows me just said this in sort of who he says. He said, afterwards, this is coming slightly afterwards that
I've told you very clearly that these are the people that I will believe from your people and there's not going to be any more people that will believe now. Allah made that very clear to say the Nohara Salam. Now he can make it clear to His Prophet, whatever is written the cutter. But what is important here for us is that there are going to be people who will see truth as
falsehood no matter what you do,
no matter how hard you try, even if you were to profit just thinking of it like this, even if you were a prophet, still these people would not take your message in and they would not believe in what you're actually saying to them. So you know, sometimes people get really frustrated, they give Dawa, they give Dawa. And the thing you know, what is it? You know, how can I get through to these peoples on this frustration is a natural thing of being a human being. But what is important is that we don't lose focus because the Prophet sallahu wa salatu salam, they had people whom they try to get to come towards, you know, the deen of Allah azza wa jal, and they failed. And it was not because of
a failure within themselves. It's just that a lot of them made it clear from their point of view that no one no one can guide except for Lazarus. And if you really want to turn someone's heart, you can turn someone's heart. And when we're in a position when we've got someone and we want to try and give them some, you know, what we want them to accept the truth that we're blessed with, you got to understand that dow you can do but the rest of the guidance allows origin. You know, we'll we'll do but the clear guidance you got no matter how many clear proofs you put in front of them, no matter how blessed you are, there are certain people who will look at your blessing and they will become
crooked, crooked in return. There are certain people who are like that, and Allah just said that about some some again, I'm gonna say some of the Jewish individuals in the prophets of the last life, Allah said well as Eden, Kathy Rahman, who matanza de la mirada, Juliana cofra. Allah said when the IRS Allah coming down on the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam. And the reason why I'm saying this about the prophecy, is that you got to understand that this is happening with almost all the other messengers as well. So it's the same sort of thing that's pattern that's happening. And with you and me, our lives, what is happening is, the more blessings that we're getting from allas
allas self The same thing is happening. So what's happening here is that when there is of Allah azza wa jal, they come down to the province of Allah, Allah Islam, and the revelations are coming down. Of course, the believers are increasing in
Eman. Allah said the increasing the man, the increasing in faith increasing and further taqwa and so on. But the enemies of Islam are increasing in more sort of enmity of the prophets of Allah, Islam more disbelief, a greater disbelief, a greater transgression, less has to be an ACO for more transgression, and more disbelief. That's the direction they're going in. And so you can imagine the same as coming down and the effects is having on the believers and the effects that happen on the disbelievers. So now you can imagine if you are a person who is blessed with Islam, and Allah has given you a lot of gifts and giving you gifts and is giving you gifts and more gifts, gifts, and
then Alhamdulillah, you're a humble person, you're a good person, you know, your peers and changes, and then you internally, you're forgiving as well, before you learn, your anger has gone down, you are able to control yourself better, you're able to manage your life better financially, you're much better as well, because you know, getting good debt, so credits and whatever else it is that other people are doing. You're not in the sinful life. So you've managed to stay away from all of that and you get you know, you've married or whatever it is, and you know, things are going good for you. The people who've got good Eman and they've got good faith, they look at you and they'll say
Alhamdulillah that's who I want to be like, but the people who haven't got that belief or who are against you, they just come to increase in hacer jealousy, in more transgression against you in more sort of hatred towards you. It's just gonna happen.
And you're going to say well, why what's my crime? Well, this is it it leashes on here, my friends here, it places on the earth and he's got his friends around here. So this this signal
is saying here and the lesson for us here is that there are going to be certain people who are going to be absolutely blind no matter how many proofs you give them, they can be blind. So it's not about the it's not about the strength of something of what you actually provide to them and how much you see is about you know themselves within themselves what they actually are able to take in from then what guidance allows that gives so he says after that again, pseudo sort of hood and number 2829 so on.
Welcome. Oh my people.
Oh, yeah. Now look at that dressing. This is another thing that we can learn from all these things. You saying your comb, oh, my people, my people now by saying Yeah,
exactly. Yeah, call me. All my people. The year has been dropped because there is a there is an offer there or there is an attribution towards the person who's saying in Arabic, you can drop the Yeah, so he's saying Yeah, call me oh my people in saying all my people. What he is doing is he's attributing these people sinful people, these mushriks these kuffar these people, all of them.
Seeing my people. Now, there is a, you know, I don't want to go too much into this. But there is definitely something where you can find in the sunan of the prophets that they had a love for the place that they lived in, and a love for the people that they dealt with and the people that were around. Okay, now let's go to the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he yearned to come back to Mecca, Mecca was his birthplace, and he had a lot of love for maca. And part of His love, of course, was because of the Kaaba that was in there. But part of the love was because that was the city, wherever you born, you're going to have an attachment to that,
wherever you're born is almost like, you know, getting the you know, the freshness of life from that place where you were born, whenever you go back there. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, when he was leaving Makkah, he looked back and he he cried, and he says omaka, if it wasn't for your people who, you know threw me out, I would never leave you.
This is definitely a hadith we can we can rely upon. There is another Hadees, which is not strong. But nevertheless, I'm just going to narrate to you that they something along the lines of having a love for one's own place where one one is actually not one's own homeland. You can see in the sealer of Ibrahima salon, and a series of all these profits, they love to go back to their original place and original people to give them power, because they've got a love for these people say that a new hire a salon was no different. He had love of people, and especially his own people that were there, and the people who are last sent to him with this mission, he had this grieving heart that he wanted
these people to come into the faith. At no moment, was he in the position to ever say, Well, that's it, he never agreed to my data. He did this to me his pattern, he mocked me he did his his that that you know, Curse of God upon the upon these people, at no moment it was was he have that attitude. And we've got to understand that there is a very great tsunami of the all the prophets, that every single prophet when it came to the very, very, very, very last straw, that's when they might have uttered something to Allah and said, Oh Allah, you know, this, these people, you know, do something about it, do something about what they do, because they've gone beyond limits, and every prophet has
been stretched to that limit at some point. And However, with Satan, and when I said I'm on all these are the problems, what we understand is that people are going to stretch you, people are going to stretch you. So when we add that we given down, there are going to be people who will challenge us and who will challenges and who will challenge us. And you know, we can forget these lessons. And I mean, very, very clearly, even myself, I need to remind myself about these lessons. Sometimes you have to just step back and look back at the lives of the Prophet, a prophet sallahu wa salatu salam, and say to yourself that what is it that they did and one of the things you see straightaway is they
said, Yeah, he told me all my people. Now for us, there is a there's a deep lesson in the fact that
he's saying pull me to the Kufa
to the people who are non Muslims. He could have said, Yeah, you had coffee room. Oh, you who disbelieve? He could have said that. Now there's only two places in the Quran. From the many places Allah addresses people. There's only two places in the Quran, where the addressing to the kuffaar is Kufa
so one is Surah calf Iran, where Allah says cool, all prophets say yeah, you have capital O you who are disbelieving in this message and who are disbelieving in this message and the second one is an address this is this was obvious sort of capital very famous surah number 109 of the Quran, you will find them
and the second one is in Surah, Tarim which is 66 surah. Number seven, you will find Allah says yeah, you are Latina. cafaro la Tata. Yum. Oh, you who disbelieved. You have got no way of making any excuses on this day. This is an addressing of Allah azza wa jal to the kuffaar on the Day of Judgment regarding the past that you have made your disbelief of the past and now you've got nothing else left for you to make excuses. Now, if you analyze the second one, which I've just said from sort of Tallinn, it's an addressing of the afterlife. So it allows addressing them from from the past and saying, Oh, you who have displayed in the past, okay, it's not that I was addressing them
about this particular world and saying, Oh, you who are displaying right now. Now what about the ones who have caffeine The only one
Reason why Allah said that was because of the deal, the negotiation of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they turned to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they said, Oh, Prophet, also, they said, Oh, Mohammed,
we want you, we want you to worship all our gods one day with all of us.
And the next day, we will worship Allah alone. And the next day, we want you to watch worship Allah with Rosa with live with me, not with all the other gods. And the next day, we will worship just your God and universe of our gods The next day, and that's the deal we're gonna make with you. When they came up with this negotiation, that's when Allah felt it was suitable to say, say, oh, Prophet. Yeah, you have caffeine, oh, you who are displeasing this message, I'm never going to worship, I'm not going to worship the things that the idols that you worship, and you're not what should be my my load load, and I'm never going to worship, the ones that you worship, and vice versa. And then for
you is your religion from my mind is mine. Mine is mine, or you have your way I have my way. And that's the strongest way of showing this distinction, this kind of way of dividing the kuffar from the non Muslims and so on, is a strongest thing you can find in the Quran to do that, yes, that is full of cafaro and so on. But what you will find is Allah addresses himself by saying them yeah, you and NASS, or people, Allah holds them by people. He says to them, yeah, lol keytab Oh, you who are those who possess knowledge of the Book of people of the book.
When Allah addresses them, he and through his prophets are telling the prophecy address them like say the new Allison here says, Yeah, call me, oh, my pupil now by saying Yeah, call me shows that we've got a link, we've got a connection. You are part of my people, you are my people. We are one together, we're a nation together. That's where it all comes from. There's nothing wrong in you saying that I've got a Bengali brother. I've got a Pakistani Brother, you know, he's Pakistani, or that one Somali, there's nothing wrong in that. Where it goes wrong in is that if you say, well, the Pakistanis are better than the Bengalis, or the Somalians are better than the, you know, Pakistanis
or whatever, if you start that kind of thing, that one nation is better than another nation within the Muslims and so on. That's where he's gone wrong. But just saying that I belong to this country, or these are the, these my Pakistani brother or Pakistani individual that i've you know, affiliation to. There's nothing wrong with that. So this own thing, the pope when he said, he told me, he's saying that all these could fall apart of his own attribution. And this this is a thing that we need to bring back to this world and say, Well, you know, what, the the places where we live in these people out there, they're the people that are attributed to us, they are part of us. I mean, to see
that, that we can work with these people, in the sense that we are given them down, we want them to come towards our way. So he said to them, yeah, Camila lokmanya. him Allah. I'm not asking you for any monies. Something which I discussed last week in Nigeria, Illa, Allah Allah, my reward is with my Allah, my reward is with no one else except for Allah. Now, on this note, my reward is only with Allah. What they were looking for is they weren't even looking for a thank you or just regular hair. And you know, once a wonderful they weren't even looking for that. And if you look in Surah, two insano, to the 76 of the Quran, you will find Allah says clearly, LAN Lederman condesa Allah
Shakira, we're not even looking for any reward or any thanks in return of the favors that we've done to yourself. So that's one thing that's important. Then he says, Well, I'm and I'd be 30 the Latina ama, No, I am not going to desert that people who have believed that this was one condition that they could find, mate, we'd say them No. They said, if you want us to believe in you, then we want you to leave these people once you leave them, then you join us. Because there was a big division between the rich and the poor in his society, the rich and the poor, didn't see eye to eye, the intelligent and the low thinking people the high thinking people low thinking people were divided.
And don't think he's any different today. Do you guys think he's any different today? Do you guys think it's any different today? You put anyone out there, the rich people slowly slowly, slowly, slowly we'll get together in the rich areas. The poor people will stay within the poor areas because the rich can make their flight they can they can move out so it's happened to so happens that the rich get together they communicate to get together in the in the areas and the poor do the same thing.
Then you have like right now in politics.
In any nation that is governing itself, you will find the most intelligent people will be looked up to. So they move up, and wherever they go higher up, and then there's people around them, they look up to them and they rate them say, Well, you know, that guy thinks ahead. So he goes up and up until all the high thinking people end up in the top part of the, of the, of the pyramid of this whole pyramid that we've got our people, and it happens naturally. But when they get together, they sometimes don't like to be around the people who haven't got their level of intelligence. Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah in the prophets, is one big thing I'm gonna tell you. And you will find this in
every single prophet Allah sent to the earth, from Satan either when I say Lambright to Satan, or Mohammed Salah Larsson, which is one that the prophets had this ability and way of an a beautiful way of connecting with the rich and the poor at the same time, with the intelligent and the non intelligent, or the high thinking individuals or low thinking individuals, they connect you to all of them as individuals, or one goal. It wasn't that they were with the highest thing, individuals and they thought, now I have this moment I've got to give my and I've got to prove to these people that I can think higher as well, it wasn't that they had this ability of magnetic way of joining up
with the people that were around. Now I want to say this one thing is that
how does this interpret to us? If we are individuals who I don't know what kind of thinking you got, but I've met people who are of the high thinking sort abilities, and they don't like to intermingle with low thinking ability people, their ego somehow says to them, that I'm wasting my time or I'm just, you know, what, what is it that I'm going to get from this individual? So it becomes an egotistic thing, that the ego says that, you know, I've got nothing from this person. So why should I even hang around because this person is on the acceptance side. And you know, on the receiving side, and I'm on the giving side, I'm always giving, as in giving my intellectual abilities giving
my advice, given my ways of thinking, and this person is on the receiving end, and is always taken from me. So how are they?
The prophets never had that. And for us, it's a Sunnah not to have that mentality. The only way you will get rid of that my brother and sister who are listening, the only way you will get that is to target the ego, the only way you will get that is to soften the ego up with the vicar of Allah azza wa jal, then you don't mind living with the common people and living with the elite people, you don't have a problem with that. Otherwise, what will happen is that you will, if you are of that thinking, usually you will want to just be with them. Or if you are a rich person, a person who is blessed with wealth, you want to just stay amongst the rich people. And when the poor people come,
you don't want him to mingle with them at all. In fact, every prophet that was sent, they got more reception from the poor people than they got from the rich people.
And this is something no doubt, they got more receptive for the poor people and they got from the rich people, the rich have been the most stubborn, the last two come on to the message. And the first to sometimes spoil the message. The first to spoil the message because of the richness, the brightness, they've got the money to bribe, they've got the money to influence things. They've always been the you know, the difficult people to to control. And the Muslim oma, you know, ourselves, if you're a person whom Allah has not been blessed with a lot of money, you know, you should just say hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, aalameen. You know, because you, we don't know what kind of
trials and tests we might be put through, if we had that opportunity and money with us to play games like those people who are rich. So this division, they saw why because they didn't fit in that class of people. The class of people were the wrong type. They didn't have money. They didn't have, you know, the gifts that they have. Now, what they're seeing, is these rich, the rich, elite class, they're saying that tomorrow, if we accept the Dean of Satan, and then say, they're No, he's going to tell us,
you and them are equal. How are we equal with these people? They're gonna have in common with us, except that the human being somewhere, or Welcome to be being a human being. So what I can't give, you know, share my wealth with these people. I can't do that. Why is that? Because the ego is there. Now. They put a conditional signal. They said, Come on, you gotta leave these people. You come to us and we'll make you a profit. That's fine. But that's not how it goes. Because those people if if Satan Watson was to accept that tomorrow, they would have thrown him out of their crowd.
He said Satan was having the same verse. Again. He says in the homework,
For a beam, they're going to meet their Lord.
He's reminding them, that these people you want me to leave these people. And these are the people who have accepted the message of Allah. And these people have already accepted and they you know that they're going to meet Allah. So the fact is that you want me to leave these people will what's going to happen tomorrow when I meet along with them? And they turn around they say, Oh Allah, you sent no to these people to to us. And he was was bribed or you know, taken away from us by the rich and the rich said, Come on our side and he left us for the rich people. He said, How am I supposed to? In a sense? How am I supposed to give my answer to Allah azza wa jal in the desert. Now, this
part where is it in the hula hula beam? How does this translate to us? Also, voila, if you just if you just remember this phrase, of the fact that I am going to go back to a law, I'm going to go back to a law I'm going to stand in front of a law I'm going to have to answer in front of a law. If this thing carries on taking in my mind, then it will stop me from a lot of students suffering for a lot of students, they
say Verner Abdullah bin Amaro de la Han, who once
he was just passing by a stranger who was a shepherd, who was on his own, in the middle of nowhere on a hill, looking after a flock of sheep.
Satan, a flock of goats, and Satan, I, Abdullah Rama plus a passed by, and he said to this Shepherd, he said, Oh, Shepherd, he said, Would you allow me to, you know, I said, I'm thirsty. Would you allow me to milk one of these goats?
Would you like to move one of these goals and to quench my thirst? I say that Abdullah bin Omar, all he was doing is he wanted to test this man. And to see what the individual say in return.
The shepherd turned around and said, I'm sorry, but I'm not the owner of these goats.
The owner is not here. I'm just a person who has been put in charge of these and I'm doing my job, looking after them. So say that I've never been Omar said he said, doesn't matter. Nice testing him. He's not really meaningless. He said to him, doesn't matter. Doesn't matter. The owner is not here.
And the shepherd said, final law. He said then where is the law?
Meaning that if you tell me that the owner of these goats is not here right now, and he can't see me and I will give you some milk. And you think because the owner is not seeing you? That is okay. Then what about Allah?
Is he not watching right now. And Abdullah Abdullah, obviously he was testing the shepherd to see what the shepherd would say whether the shepherd will give it to him or not, nobody will take it. Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah Han Omar, he went for the rest of his life around and he would say pile of life in LA. Kala rife in LA this became a great lesson and a means for Abdullah Norma to remember Allah. He said, The shepherd said the shepherd, meaning that he was a lonely Shepherd in the middle of a hill in the middle of nowhere. And the shepherd said, so where is a law? The shepherd said, so where is a law? The shepherd said, so where is a law? So where is a law? And he kept on repeating
that throughout his life just to create and he would cry when he would say this that how much fear did the shepherd have are larger now? This is the same kind of thickness. I don't know how listen I'm saying here which is in Houma, la hora beam. So what about when they meet Holanda dead gentlemen, am I going to be free from deserting them and going with you the rich in live class? What about alone watching right now? I mean, I'm gonna be I'm duty bound to what I've, you know what I'm doing right now? And I've got an answer. Then he said, Well, I can come home and touch alone. But rather I see you people, as a group of people who are in ignorance, who just don't know. Naja Hala
Johanna is to Jaya hill or something is not you're not only ignorant, not only that, you don't know but you've got a way of life that has accustomed you to think in a certain way and to have habits of a certain way. So when the when Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was sent, and he was dealing with the Sahaba coming out from the Jaya Healey period. It's the same Johanna that we're talking here. Johanna gyri period is the same thing, which is that they're in a mode of life, where they're thinking and behavior is more or less driven by the force of
The set of people and they and the culture that they've got. So for example, if we were to translate that to in our lives right now, you know, these people are there, they're in jala. They're in ignorance, all the people who haven't accepted Islam, then Johanna, so basically, their wine, their alcohol, to get that to drink that they need to do this part of the culture is just the way they've been brought up the way the whole nation is moving on. So to go down the pub, to go and sit and talk to someone to order a pint of beer, and to sit in a sipping that while having the conversation is part of the culture to come out. And to come out on a Saturday night and just to lose the the ego
out to the lowest of what we can. And then Monday morning, be in a suit, and boot, and go to work, and be you know, very professional. And you know, Monday through Friday, do the best you can get your paycheck at the end of the week. And then Friday night, Saturday night, go and hit Western, and go do what you can because this is the time when you want enjoy thing, come back half drunk, you know, come back to your flat, do what you want. But then Monday morning, again, to boot. And then I've got a you know, I've got a mission to to get my job done properly. This is the culture. Then in Java, they don't know. See, they don't know they they are not aware of the beauty that we've got as
lives now. Just just starting with today. Today. So yesterday, I was at a
large cash and carry Costco. And the person said to me said would you like to get this, this
credit card? This didn't he didn't say credit card. He actually didn't use the word credit card. He said, Would you like this bonus card? So I said, What's his bonus card. So he said to me this bonus card, and if you get it, then you get this many points. And you don't have to pay any six months, you can just go out then you can buy what you want. And take it today and six months later, you can worry about paying. And I said you mean a credit card? He said yeah, it's kind of a credit card. I said, Well, I said I don't I don't take credit cards.
I don't have credit cards, and I don't want to use credit cards. I said, why not?
I said because I said don't see me. I said look, I'm a free individual.
I said my religion teaches me don't go into credit cards, don't go into the credit system. Don't start taking loans and loans on yourself. What's gonna happen tomorrow is that I'm going to be thick in debts, and I'm going to be chasing trying to pay all these all these debts off. I said, I don't believe in that. So what I have I spent what I don't have, I don't spend and guess what I said I don't have debts.
So the people out there, get credit cards to get hooked on and he looked and said he said Kota is has quite good days, you know, the thing is they're in Johanna. They're in ignorance. And we need to tell them the beauty of Islam, the beauty of Islam, in why we've got these things out, I remember I was in university and
one of them wanted to know, girl wanted to shake my hand.
And I normally what I do, I just put my hands up,
not shaking your hand not touching. And she'll be like, oh, but straight away, I'll explain. I said you don't think I've been rude to you? See, there's some Jewish individuals who don't shake hands. Because the woman might be on a menses. That's not all Jewish individuals is some groups that that some sects that believe in that. What I said, Look is not for any other reason. It's because I am respecting you, an honoring you for the person who you're going to spend for the rest of your life with whoever you get married with. I'm honoring you for that.
And the same honor will be given to the woman that I spent for the rest of my life with that no man will touch her. And she said to me
that's that's, that's, that's good. You just say the phrase to them. It takes what takes you literally six seconds to say this phrase. I'm wondering you for the president or 10 seconds maximum, honoring you for the person you're going to spend the rest of your life And likewise, I'm going to be honest with the person that I spend the rest of my life with. I think they've understood a lot of time. They're in university. They're going for a drink. So they said, you know there's an acid Would you like to come down for a drink? I said,
I said no, I'm not actually come down and I explained it. I said, Look, there's a reason why I don't drink.
I said, We don't drink. We don't get drunk. We don't have troubles. I said you look at the man who travels that this country has about
billions of billions have been spent every year with crime related to alcohol. And when you when you explain that to them, you know what they did, one of them said to me, they said, you know, say, Ah, you know, I had my house and I had my husband, I wish I, I wish I could be like you.
You know, you didn't go, I wish I could fly you. Now what they're doing is they're admitting to the ignorant life, they know that you got a better life, but they just haven't made the push and the move yet to that life. Now, what I want to say to you individually is what say that and why some said, and the same thing has been repeated by many prophets and that have come afterwards, that you are a people who just don't know. You just don't know what you're just missing out on. You just don't know what it is that you are in absence of. Now, this is very much different. This word Jihad again, is very different from the old do jarhead word. You know, if you say to someone that to jail
is almost like a swear word to call someone died, which means that you just absolute ignorant fool or something, you know, it's very different from the Arabic Johanna, which shows that their mode of behavior, the understanding and the thinking is just just not right and they just don't understand what it is that they're doing wrong.
Then he said Jaco sudama people, now he's trying to reason with them. He says Manian Sunni mean Allah, interrupt to whom He said, If I was to leave these people who have believed because, look, he's believed with this group of people who are believers. And they're the low thinking type that, you know, like I said to you the most apparent of thinking is that if I was to leave these people, for me, and suddenly who would come to my help
who would come to my rescue,
besides a La Nina, when Allah decides not to help me, who's going to be the one that would help? who helps me? Now, there's a beautiful thing in these were, his whole trust of the hill is in Allah and no one else. He's, he's not even looking at, you know, these people, they might have the monies they might have, you know, they might have the power, they might have the gift to help. No. And there's a massive lesson for us brothers and sisters, you know, today, the Muslim oma is looking at you know, what, how can we help the oma so you know, we need to be the best equipped in terms of, you know, some Muslim might say that they need to the best equipped in weaponry, some Muslim might say the
best equipped in financial status some Muslim I say best equipped in, you know, the nuclear bomb, or you know, a way of being into top g A to G, you know, something g seven, whatever it is, you know, big summit a part of that, and they rule the control large parts of the world and all your material material gains and superiority over others. And they look at the success of Islam and the help of Allah coming through these means. Now, if you read the prophets words, and you analyze them, you'll see that he says, If I desert these people, who are these people is talking about the believers, common thinkers, they ain't got no much money, they ain't got nothing except the man inside them.
And the Prophet is saying, if I desert these and who's going to help me against Allah, mean that Allah is on the believer side, allies with these believers, allies not with you, because you've got money, allies, not with you, because you've got wealth, and you've got status, and you've got power allies, not with you. So you know, today when I just I just find it so
you know, sometimes you really play you know, really disheartened me to see Muslims saying, you know, thinking that how if you can get this country, if you can get this, these people in the parliament just to believe in or just to, you know, help us in some way or whatever, then we can gain the smartphone, we can do this. The thing is, brothers and sisters were listening, you know, belief in Allah is the strongest thing that we've got, there is nothing stronger than that. And one of the things that we have actually lost ourselves in is that our eyes our focus sometimes goes on to the things that we see as power of this earth, when the real power is with our belief in a large
region. And even Rasulullah sallallahu was told by by Lazarus and he was told in the Quran in surah Anna, oh prophet don't you live and desert the people who are calling me by day and by night while I try to do La da da, da, da, da da, da, da, da da da da. They only want my pleasure. Don't leave these people don't deserve them. So this last lesson had the US had to suffer in the US have suffered they were a group of sometimes up to 30 to 40 people who used
To live in or sleep in the veranda of the masjid, and their whole life, they dedicated into worship in the worship of Allah, in the remembrance of Allah and Prophet sallallahu Sallam a lot, a lot of the times he got busy and he would go outside and he would be with others, you know, who's trying to get them into the deen. And a lot of reminded him in a few times have run and other times in sort of Camp as well. Don't leave these people don't you deserve them. So rasulillah needs to come back to those people in the masjid. And he would say to them, oh, people I've been ordered by Allah to come and be with you. I've been asked by large can be with you. So you know, your, you know, your person
who's in the masjid, who might be you know, he's going to your big politics and big gains or whatever. And he might get involved down again, but what he's doing is he's dedicating his, either his thoughts and his mind and his remembrance towards a law, there's a very, very important person and important people that don't look at that don't look down on these people, like, you know, sometimes we can get into a situation where somebody will mock them and say, Look, what is he doing just sitting there? You know, look, they're doing the service that we will need, you know, that was their concentration, their approach to Allah, the focus on the next slide are all that will help us
definitely in in a, in a great way. So that is one thing that says, No, no, hi, Sam is telling us that we're allies on their side. So who's whose side Am I going to be on when I come to you people, and the message I want to give very strongly is, look across the world, and look how many bootlickers we've got, I call them bootlickers, what they do is they just want to go. And you know, they want to almost worship other people who are in power and position. And they think that that's the only route for them to get their salvation. And you see them, you know, they'll they'll be there for a while, they'll be gone, and some others will come and we'll be gone. And the boots will be
there, the bootlickers will be there. But you will not get much coming out of that for Islam, the believers. And real faith is when we when we put in, in Alaska, the Sahaba delana Mk nine, if you look at around the province, and allows them they didn't have they didn't have much wealth, they gave it all in the service of law, but they had the man because of that, look what Allah gave them in return, he gave countries and countries Why? Because they had their connection with Allah. And that's what Allah wants to see once I see a connection with him. And it's not about the connection itself is about the strength of that connection. So you can you can start off with a string that is
a connection. But you can then end up with a rope that is a connection, then you can end up with a solid in a beam as a connection. You can end up with whatever it is, you know, the stronger it gets. The better it is, the more fortified it is and the and the longer lasting it is and the more help you will receive from Allah azza wa jal. So he says Allah tala Corona up, we're not going to reflect on what you actually say we actually actually asked him to do.
And then they wanted him to then they accused him, they said to say and I said, Okay, you're a prophet. So why is it tell us? Why is it
that you just an ordinary man
that you're not blessed with? You know, look at us. If Allah was going to send a prophet, why would he send a guy like you?
He ain't got no money. You haven't got no money, you haven't got no status like us?
Why is it that you haven't got a lot of treasures? Why is it that you're not richer than us? They said, why is it that you can't Okay, this, one of the things they said to me is over gone, tell us the future. If you can tell us the future, and you predict the future correctly, then we're going to believe in you as a prophet of Allah.
they said, why is it that you're not an angel? Allah wouldn't say an angel verses 13. They said, and
why is it that they said, Look, they're one of the four the fourth may have said was that Allah is not going to give any goodness to these people who are following you. Allah is not going to give them any goodness.
these are four things they said so say the new Harrison said he said well, I akula in the Hazara Allah i'm not i'm not declaring or saying to you that I have got the the treasures of Allah with me that I'm I can be rich when I buy one. That's not one of the conditions and why Allah has mentioned this to us is because faith and money sometimes are like oil and water.
You know, having lots of riches, you will find only a few rich people in history of Islam, who have been very, very close to Allah. Most of them
The rich people Allah has made have gone far, far away from Islam. Right? And if you got no other place to look today, then just look at Dubai. Just look at, you know, one of the one of the richest well supposedly, which is country and rich what they're doing, they just they just breeding their horses. And I just want to say, somebody asked me the other day and said, you know, is it is it hard to have horsemen? Yeah, we had this whole horsemeat scandal in the beef burgers and they've got hos burgers instead. Yeah. So
they said, is it halal to actually do Saba have a horse and eat because we heard that is mcru. It's not desirable. It's disliked by Allah and His messenger. So as I said, I asked this to move the ones. And the most he said to me that yesterday, in yesterday's time, it was mcru, because they used to use these horses to go out in jihad. We said today, because they used the horses to gamble. He said it should be Rajiv to slaughter them, and to have as many you know, as much horse meat as you can. So I said to her Allah, I said, how different times have changed, that you could end up with a 1 million pound burger. You know, if you get the wrong horse, and you take it down. And it was the
shakes holes that he was racing the tracks with the mass can be very expensive burger that you've just made in your head bursary.
The point here is that money, riches and faith down, always mix. You will find in history of Islam, most of the pious and devout people have been the poor people. And only a few from the poor people have been those who have gone astray. But most of the ones who you see as devout, if you look at the devout people across Islamic Islamic history, you will find a very small percentage of rich people who have been devout, and a large proportion of poor people who are devout. So that's one thing he said, I said, Look, I'm not in charge of this. I can't tell you, you know, and he said, I can't tell you about the unseen. I don't know the unseen c'est la vie. I don't know the unseen if Allah
obviously revealed it to a prophet than it will be revealed. And he did reveal to say the knowledge and what would happen in the future.
He said, Well, aku in the malarkey said, I'm not telling you that I'm I'm an angel. I'm not an angel, I am a human being. And Allah has decided to send human beings to human beings. If I was a, an angel, you would have said, Why don't I eat?
Isn't that a common thing? Like you say, you say, if an angel came and said, Be like me? Who can say how can you be like you? Bingo wings, we can't fly to the heavens. We've got material bodies, you haven't got a material body, you made a noodle you made a light? How can we be like you so that? So if an angel was sent, we would have said, Why are you demonstrating to us You haven't even got an ego, you haven't got the will to disobey God. And yet you want us to follow you as an example. We can't do this, because you haven't got an ego. If you had an ego, if you're a human like us, then maybe would have been able to follow you. So that would have been acquisition. So he said, What are
cooler? Moloch I'm telling you, I'm not an angel, human being has been sent to you fine, while I akula. Dina says that they are you know, and the people whom you despise with your eyes, the people whom you look down on meaning the believers that are that have accepted faith with me. I don't say that Allah is not going to give them goodness. I don't say that. If allowance to give them goodness, he can give them goodness now so handla from this what we do we learn.
We learn that Allah goodness can be given to anyone.
Absolutely anyone anywhere in the world, anywhere wherever he is coffee Muslim, you no one will be the one who can share one who's you know, with the blees, one who's in the muskie, the one who's in faith, Allah does not look at the divine, the non devout and start distributing his, his, his favors or higher goodness, he does. He can give goodness to anyone who wants he wants to give beauty to a person who is using that beauty to disobey God. He can give beauty. He wants to give intelligence to someone who's going to be smart and use it against him. He'll give intelligent he will give it to anyone he wants is not as something that we we can start making our own rules of. So he says Allahu
Allah, mobi Murphy and fusi
Allah knows best what is in the hearts of these believers. Don't make an excuse that you're not going to come to Islam. Because of these people. Now Subhana Allah does another big lesson need to learn what is that? Some people make the most lame excuse they can because they don't want to become practicing. I don't know if you've heard this uses. I'll give you excuses that I've heard some people say
I don't want to stop practicing Islam. Because if I practice Islam, then
I'm not gonna be able to do what I'm doing.
I can't sin the way I'm sinning basically. Right? You know, I met this guy the other day sad case. He said to me, he said straight up, he said, city, man, I'm gonna be straight up with you.
I said what? He said.
I said, I don't want to get married.
As a woman, you want to get married young man. 25 year old young man. So what are you gonna get mad? He said, Look, sorry, ma'am. He says, If I don't get married, then I can carry on dating.
Taking care of dating, so he can pick and drop. They call it pick and roll. So he can pick a girl, you know, tester for a little while. drop her new ones. And pick another one drop her pick another drop her. He said he five marry one. I said, I'm just gonna stick with her.
I can't choose anymore. A choice is gone. I said, Well, yes, perfect. Marriage is responsibility. So you know, these dating and picking and dropping? What's happening is that you're not taking any responsibilities. And marriage is not for the narcissist. And seriously, Allah wants you to be a responsible individual. That's why he wants her to be a responsible individual. So that's why I was telling you to get married as well. If you think about it, the sending mind is what like, I'm in a position where I can, I can follow my ego, I can pick whoever I want, I can sleep with about six different girls, if I want, I'm going to be stuck with one. Why should I do that? Four. It's an ego
thing. It's an ego thing. And there are people who make excuses not to come to Islam, because of this, or they say, I'm not gonna come to Islam, well, I'm not gonna be practicing Why? Because I'm going to end up like him.
And I don't like him.
What kind of excuses that you're going to end up like, so I've heard this with my own, you know, with my own ears, they're going to end up like someone. So it's like, well, I'm going to end up like this individual who's too Sufi type, or too much of a, you know, saintly type of person. And I don't want to become a devil who said, you're gonna become like that if you enter, if you become practicing. Or some people might say, Well, I don't want to, I don't want to practice right now. I want to practice later on this one time and over again, not a beanie, not now. When I'm 14 now, then I'll do it.
I remember one guy who said this to me said, when I'm 40, I'm going to change.
So, you know, once I heard it from him, I thought, you know, let him talk to you another time. So when another time and I just passing by conversation, I talked to him and given our second you know, you gotta you gotta become practicing. He said, he said, Well, I'm still in my 30s yet, I've got to reach 40.
When I get 40, the Golden 40 then I'm going to change.
So one of these days, I was there, and I'm talking about basically a shop and he says, the shop owner some time ago, you know, when I go to shops, and I get to know the person, I get to try to give them a bit of power. So once I I said to him, I said, Listen, I said Do me a favor. I said, look just right for me on a piece of paper that you're going to leave to 40
I looked at him and said, I can't do that. So what if you can't do that? So is this 40 business coming from? Then anyway, I kept on talking to him, then 40 came a
few years later, 40 k?
attend a body shop.
And I said to him, do you remember you said when you 14 you're gonna change?
He said, yeah, yeah, yeah, inshallah, inshallah. You know, it's like, yeah, you know, it's coming. It's coming. 41 when 42 and I'm saying, hey, guy, they said, you know, you said, 40 you're now 42. And you still haven't changed. So what's happened with these 40 thing that you had, when I'm 40 I'm gonna change Okay, you live to 40. Now, come on, you know, make a move. handler What I can say is the person to some extent, by the time he when he came to 50 or something he went to
he went to Hajj when he's 50. He hasn't fully fully changed internally, but at least there's been some change in his life. The thing is, if people make excuses, some people they make the excuses. I don't want to get into Islam, or becoming practical, become practicing because I'm gonna have to do all of these things. I'm gonna have to, you know, all these things that are standing poses. I'm gonna have to do all of that. I don't want to get into Islam because I think I'm okay where I am. For me. You're okay, where you are? Well, I've got a good heart. Yeah, you've got a good heart. You know, you can forgive and you can, you know, you're going to open hardware. This is not an excuse
for you not to come. People make all sorts of excuses. So here, one of the things is that
they will almost trying to say that I'm
I'm not going to come into this because of those people. And those people are going to be attributed to me, I want to be part of them, whatever I don't, I don't want to come to stop. And I don't want to come to your dean because of that season. And who is what I'm saying that, you know, you're looking down on these people. I'm not saying Allah, Allah is not going to give them any hate, meaning Allah hate is given to you given to them, who am I to decide that? And Allah knows what's best in themselves? Meaning that in their own cells, whatever qualities they've got, Allah knows that how are you the judge of what's inside these people? See, people are quite quick to judge on
other people and what's inside them. And what's happening, you know, what kind of thoughts and feelings they've got of them. But who knows what part of us a lot of likes, and what part of us a lot doesn't like because of which we might end up in general or because of which we might end up in general. That's it. That's the thing that's even unwise that I'm saying that how that translates to us is,
don't let us not ever look at somebody and say, you know, who's he look at him? He's not even practicing, either that way, or look at him. He's practicing, he thinks he's so good watch what's going to happen to him. No, we shouldn't be judgmental about people just leave people to who they are. Unless they have an interaction with you and they giving you trouble and you have to deal with them, then deal with them in the best manner you can otherwise just leave them don't judge people for what they are you see a person and your your initial thoughts are that guy, he's doing that because he wants to show off. And you can't see in his heart. You can't see in his heart, that
person that woman why she did that is because she wants to prove a point she got it, she's got a chip on her shoulder. Who are you to decide from what's inside her heart, what she's not, you've got external behaviors. And you know, body language and things that give you give you certain signs. And you can you can interpret things from those signs. But don't spread it amongst people. Unless you're warning them of something that is clear and concrete, you know that this person is vicious, this person is got a crooked heart, this person is going to rip people off then tell people okay, be careful these people, that's fine, but not otherwise.
So then say, you know, Allah Salam says, In either lemina Valley mean, I will definitely become those people who become the volumes those who will oppress if I was to leave these people if I was to think like you, if I was to look down on these people like you, I would become like that. Now.
They turned around to Satan analysis. And they said to him, and this again, pseudo hood, number 32 and number 34. They turn to say the new one I said under said Yano Khadija dantana for axalta Jelena. They said you have argued with us. And you know what? There's been just too much argumentation between us. You've caused serious argumentation with us.
Fat in advertisements icon bring us what you've been promised. God just bring us what you've been promised. Now, if say that and Wallace and I must say okay, I want to bring you what Allah promising meaning that Allah is going to now bring his punishment upon new people, then these people haven't even got a chance to turn back. The punishment will be gone to Jana, to say that Anwar is and is not doing that. What we learn from this is Jaya Hill people, ignorant people don't think of the consequences. One thing you got to remember brothers and sisters, please remember this. When you're dealing with a Jaya, he'll interrupt people they don't think of the consequences. When you're
dealing with the people of knowledge and dealing with good people, they think of the consequences. So when say the neurosurgeon said, You want me to leave these people say the noir esalaam is saying that, look, I'm thinking I'm a consequence. I'm thinking my afterlife. I'm thinking I want to meet a lot even we're gonna meet a lot. I won't have an answer to give when they say that I deserted them because some rich people and some elite people, he's thinking of the consequences. When they say gone and bring us the punishment of a law. They're not even thinking what's going to happen, you know, if he said it was to say, Okay, here it is. Allah send you punishment. Open the doors of rain
and flood these people. If the rains was if the rain starts to come, it's not like it's going to stop halfway. And people can say, Oh, well, good. Have you thought right now, please turn it back and say, don't worry. We can say, you know, Abracadabra, you know, rain stop, turn back go where you came from. See, did you see that? what they'll do is they'll turn around to say the new they'll say you magician, wow, you got some powerful magic. As soon as say if he wants to even do that is not that he could stop halfway and say we're lost on the punishment. Now. These are the people that will believe know that well, the chances over we have been over by them. So they're asking him something
without thinking and the consequences consequences and I've seen
In my life I've dealt with Jilin ignorant people.
There are people who either don't, they haven't got the consequences of the the effects of what they're doing in their mind, or they just don't want to think about it. They just want to enjoy the now they don't want to think about the tomorrow. And that is a there is a serious problem. And a lot of young people that are you know, when they get mockup lives and so on, they don't think about tomorrow, they don't think about what's going to happen. And they think, no, I don't want to believe what you're telling me it's going to be alright because I can turn and stare back. But they don't know that everyone else before them that tried to stay back was too late to actually make that move.
So say the nanowires himself in MIT can be low in charlemont memories and he said, Look, if Allah wants to punish you, people, Allah can choose whenever he wants to do that it will bring it about, you won't be able to rescue yourself if he does that. So don't use challenging allows punishment and allows growth. And he said to them, while I and Falcon Nasri said my advice to you that I'm given to you, nothing can benefit you of my advice.
Even if I really wanted myself to really benefit yourselves if you want to do that, if allow Will's to divert you from this will take you straight, who are boom, he is your Lord. And to him You shall return. What we learn from this is a no matter how much you do, and I do in terms of calling someone to the dean, eventually, we have to remember that is a lot of garden. So one of the things they tell us the other might have told us to do is you get da da da da da. So you call people to Islam. Either you're calling a non practicing Muslim to become practicing, or you're calling a non Muslim to become a Muslim, whichever Dawa, you're giving after that is. So the Dow is in the daytime, the
dries in the nighttime. This was the MBs sooner, the sooner of all the profits, they always made dryer for the people who they gave power to. And people they call him to they will ask a loving Allah to give the guidance to them. Because your words are my words are nothing if a law doesn't put the effects of those words in the heart, or in the hearts of those people who are listening to us. And that is that is a that is an important part. So what happens is in the next part, we're going to see after
years and centuries of Tao this system known as lm D did this over centuries, centuries is these are not decades, not years, imagine he's done it for centuries. Now, you will mean you have to literally sit down and think I'm only being given Tao for one year, two years, five years, seven years, 10 years, 20 years, whatever it is, say the new Isola has gone through 200 300 400 to 900 years of darkness serious, serious time. And only then did he turn to Allah with a complaint I said Allah
I've done my best and this is in the next next lesson we're gonna we're gonna go through that. And so beautiful how he presents to Allah, his shikhara or his, his grief to Allah. And it's every piece of it is a lesson for us to learn every single piece that the word is saying and sort of nor, if you can, actually before next lesson shall try and read through the law which is a 71st surah. The whole surah is this is the introduction of new Assam to his people and his whole complaint to Allah and His abuse, if you analyze it to analyze him, you know, it's a wonderful piece of how many things he's putting together in that one of his to Allah subhanaw taala. So we'll do that inshallah. Next
