00:01:43--> 00:01:45

idea respect your brothers and sisters who are listening

00:01:47--> 00:01:55

title is about entertaining or amusing ourselves to death. And I'm sure you know what we're talking about

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

talking about the times that we're living in, and the ads that I've just read to you.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

The ads go back a very long time back.

00:02:06--> 00:02:14

In fact, they go back to the time when our grandfather, great great, great grandfather, great, great great grandmother, they both were in Jannah.

00:02:16--> 00:02:27

And Allah had given them pleasures. Allah had said stay inside Jana, you've got all of these things to enjoy. But this one tree you don't eat from this one tree, the forbidden tree in general.

00:02:29--> 00:02:36

Shaytan eventually he made his way in the that's not going to how he got in, but he got in eventually.

00:02:37--> 00:02:42

And he had to find a way to get both of these individuals to try and eat from the tree.

00:02:44--> 00:02:55

Because he had a purpose. His purpose was, Allah says in the in the Holy Quran, in this Surah Surah two, which is the seven surah verse number 20.

00:02:57--> 00:03:02

Allah said, that leave with the Allahumma mabuya and human so at him.

00:03:03--> 00:03:31

His purpose was that he wanted otherwise Robin Hauer, to lose their modesty. He knew that by eating from the tree, they would lose their clothing. He knew that by losing their clothing, they will be sent straight down to the earth. And he knew that his game would begin to try and take every single, every single son of Adam and daughter of Eve. He wants to take them with him to help her.

00:03:32--> 00:03:44

This was his purpose. And he had said to Allah, He even said to Allah subhanho wa Taala that I will do everything I can to try and take them

00:03:45--> 00:03:49

try and take them with me. And Allah said you use whatever tools you find.

00:03:50--> 00:03:54

The law may be very distinctive that I will have a bad year sorry.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

I have got certain my my servants who will be righteous and they will be those who will follow you.

00:04:01--> 00:04:26

And the ones that will follow you will go with you. The amla Anna Johanna man Minh, kawaman man, Tabby aka Allah Surat, okay. I will feel Hellfire with you, with all your followers, those who will you take behind you, you will all fall you will all fall into Hellfire in the end, and you will fill the hole of Hellfire with it. And I will fill it with you and those who follow you.

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

Elijah Cummings.

00:04:29--> 00:04:48

Except he said that except for your servants, who are your most sincere servants, they will be the most difficult ones for him to trick. Now, what happened? I mean, we I know the we know the story. I'm not gonna spend the whole time talking about the story, but I want to derive certain things that are really relevant for us today.

00:04:49--> 00:04:58

Because shaytan had a purpose. His purpose was to take them out of Germany. His purpose was to make them lose their clothing and so on. Allah says that clearly he lived a llama warrior.

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

But shaytan couldn't tell them this shader had to put them in a state of forgetfulness.

00:05:08--> 00:05:30

And shaytan waited until they were so comfortable around Indiana with all the other trees, they could roam around, eat and so on. Until one day shaytan came and he tricked them. He tricked them by saying one lie. He took the name, Allah's Name.

00:05:31--> 00:05:48

And he said, What lie he by a lie swear this is true. So not only did he now well, not only did he lie, but he lied by taking a last name. And not only that, but he started to glamorize What beautiful things could happen to them if they ate from the tree.

00:05:50--> 00:06:18

So he said, according to this ayah he said, Man, her Kumara bakuman her the his shahdara Oh, Adam, Eve, Allah hasn't told you to stop eating from this tree, except there's a secret behind this tree. You eat from this tree, you will become like the rest of the angels. You are mortals you will die one day. If you want to have an everlasting life, then you eat from this tree.

00:06:19--> 00:06:29

Inland Hakuna mala came out. akuna Minal holiday, he said you will be everlasting, or you will become like the angels, your mortal bodies will change to change Angel bodies.

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

And to sum it all up to put the icing on the cake, he said, What luck?

00:06:39--> 00:07:23

What I'm saying is, is true now, as Melissa lamb being a prophet, as Melissa lamb never heard anyone lie ever in his life, ever, ever heard anyone lie? And to lie and say what lie on top? This guy's got to be saying something of the truth. And he fell for it. And so did however, Allah alayhi salam, she fell for it, and they ate from the tree and when they ate by the tullahoma. So, to whom their clothes disappeared and it was very embarrassing for them. straightaway they took a topic IFC finally human work in general, they took the large leaves of Paradise, and they started to cover themselves and unless it was, unless it

00:07:24--> 00:07:34

and Akuma on to Akuma shahdara did not tell you Adam did not tell you Eve that I want you from eating from this tree. Why?

00:07:35--> 00:07:44

But akula Kumar in a shape on Allah Kumar, Moby, that the shaytaan the devil he is your open and he did not tell you that.

00:07:47--> 00:08:22

They fell into embarrassment. What could they say? They said robina pollen and Susana ilam TOEFL Anna Ouattara, Hannah. Diana coonan. Amina hos Ed, overload. We have wronged ourselves. And if you don't have mercy on us, if you don't forgive us, and we will be able to losers, they realize the mistake but it was too late. He had made them make the mistake. And now they have to bear what will happen to them. So they got sent down to the earth. But when they got sent down to the earth, Allah said in verse number 26 of the same surah

00:08:24--> 00:09:15

verse number 27 in the same surah Yeah, Benny Adam Allah EFT Nana comerciais, Tanaka. Harada. Abba could mean Angelina, all children of Adam, don't let the shaytan put you in trial. Don't let him trick you. Don't let him put you in a similar situation. Don't let him take out or do something to you just as he took out your forefathers of forefather Adam and SLM and it took out your mother however alayhis salaam to both of them out of Jana yen Xiao Han who Malabar Sakuma he stripped them of their clothing, Allah says Uriah Houma, so ottima to show them what is hidden underneath in who we are, who, to whom in high school at arona, whom shaytan is watching you from a distance from a

00:09:15--> 00:09:41

way that you do not see him his whole army and his Kabira his whole clan. He's got a family loathing shaytan he's just a lot don't think he's one he believes shaytan has got loads of them. In fact, he is today. He has got so many recruits from the gyms and so many recruits from the human beings as well. There are a lot of shaytans that are out there.

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

Some of them might be sitting here and I

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

don't know. I heard there was a tip off.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

You know, you don't know that. There are so many of them out there. jeans are the ones that we kind of thinking you know, where's the we're supposed to come from. It doesn't have to be always wasa. It can be

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

Sometimes the shaytan can be your best friend.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

It's more easier to

00:10:06--> 00:10:18

is no easier for shaytan to get at you to make him your best friend, then for him to bring your enemy to you and try and make you do something wrong. How many times are you going to listen to you and your enemy comes to you even

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

though when

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

your friend comes to him

00:10:27--> 00:11:14

now he's not going to take a fruit out or a tree out. That's gone. And the time Adam and Sam got tricked, it's gone. It's gone. Today's way of tricking people and somehow Allah you know, he's, he's gone far ahead, because you know, you know why he's so far ahead. Because he's had a life longer than any one of us, his other life longer than them. From the time of Adam Allah Salaam to today he still be living. All the other gyms have been dying one by one, but at least has been living. So Iblees has mastered his tricks. Now his tricks are not that many. His tricks are not that many. But what he's done it, it's the same game, but a different name. That's all it is the same game and a

00:11:14--> 00:11:34

different name. So when he tricked out the money Salaam, he had to come in, and he had to tell him that he's going to get something else out of what is about to get into. He had to say, Well, why am us anything he has to to say that what he's got in front of him is going to be different. Today my I mean, in between there. So when you think about it, okay, you think about it.

00:11:36--> 00:11:48

In back home, you know, before this technology came out to trick a person, what do you have to do? The shaytan has to make a woman come out of a house and man pass by and see his little Cinderella.

00:11:50--> 00:12:30

fall in love with her. Right? Then he has to think of a way to get the man that the goal to meet the girl in a haystack somewhere without the father knowing because he's going to get his meat cleaver out, right. And then he's going to have to make them do hula Baloo somewhere without anyone else knowing. But then he's got so many other problems. Because if she is expecting, then he's going to be dead. Shaytan is going to be the first one to run away and so on. And he's going to leave Molly mess. But today, he's gone. far ahead. He don't need to take little Cinderella out of the house. He will Cinderella. Let's call her an artist forgive a name. You might say well, you might be talking

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

about someone I know.

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

Right? Let's just call her Bye, bye.

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

Let's go. Haha, you know, that can be a name, you can use both legs, right? So she's sitting there, she don't need to come out of a house.

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

And neither does a guy need to come out of his house. They're sitting in their homes far away, they could be on two sides of the world.

00:12:58--> 00:13:38

And one's got a little too high in his hand, mouse and the mouse. And basically communicating with one another. We know how it happens web cam, whatever it is right? It doesn't even have to happen in front of a computer anymore. You've got a little device on your phone, you can just open it you've got your Facebook, whatever you got on it, you basically communicating with one another. And then now we live in valic that video or camera or whatever is taking pictures shader. Obviously he's told us we need these things he's told us and and the thing is, you know, we got one right in front of us as well right here, right? We use it for our purpose as well. You know, you want to make a little

00:13:38--> 00:14:16

charity fund or whatever, you know, you go down to the studio, and you make a little charity thing. But the thing is, you got to understand what's happening here. And I'll be very honest with you. Yes, I do sit here and I do have, you know, this sort of filming and so on. And I do understand that people electron they do view these things and they get in some Deen out of it. They begin some Deen and some of the religion Alibaba very honest with you. What he what shaytan has done is whether it's the TV, the internet and your YouTube or your Google videos or wherever it is. And whether it's your apps that you got on your phone or something like that, and you got your icron and your IDs and your

00:14:16--> 00:14:30

IDs, right. What he has done is you can put as many troops as you want in this, but all you are doing is you are putting a whole load bag of truth in a sea of lies.

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

It's a whole sea of lies.

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

You know, say go to the hammer law. He was once asked when he was when he was asked. He said what why don't you put an article in the newspaper and every week we can have your message coming out. And he said he said it's almost like he said a guy from a toilet inside a toilet. He basically opened the little toilet window

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

And is trying to find a little window on the screen out and say, hey guys listen to the truth

00:15:09--> 00:15:14

fields that were clued on, he said, it's almost like that you're already in a toilet.

00:15:16--> 00:15:33

And second thing, you got this little window, you're not even in the main house, you're not even on the main street. And you're trying to get these little, of course, there'll be some passive buys that will listen to you and they will get get some of the truth. But you're already in the midst of a barrage of lies.

00:15:34--> 00:15:44

See, there's two ways of lying, the old way of lying shaytan did with alamanda salam was to tell him what lie he you eat from that you become an angel. He

00:15:45--> 00:16:01

that was the old way that the the clever way of lying, is to basically cover the truth and covering with lies, and put so many lies around the truth that you're confused. You know, I honestly speaking right? At this

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

at this old lady.

00:16:06--> 00:16:39

plus seven or something, she asked me a question. She said, Melissa, she said, she said, I'm watching. I watched this. She he has no she didn't say she said I saw the channel. And she said something she saw on the channel. I want to know what they're talking about. And I said, Look, that is a shear channel. And basically, you're Sunni. That's the shear channel. And they're talking about, you know, things that, you know, I don't want to go and go into them. So they're talking about things that you don't really need to know. She said, you know, but they said this, and I heard this and is it true that Satan Allah, Allah on what the other Sahaba did to him? I said, Listen,

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

listen, I'm gonna mean Hang on a minute. I said, How old are you?

00:16:43--> 00:16:47

She goes, I'm 70 something. I said exactly. How long have you got left?

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

I'm sorry, if you say any

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

serious thing you got left.

00:16:56--> 00:17:05

You want to sit here and now Now stop knowing about what she is say. And Sunni, say at the age of plus 70? I said you have

00:17:07--> 00:17:19

no serious seriously doo doo. Does this woman seriously need to know I mean, if she was What if she didn't have the TV in our house? She's a woman. I said, Listen, get get on with your attitude. Get on.

00:17:21--> 00:17:34

Get on with the current law, which he was already doing. I said, you've cut down on the time of you they can tell just to watch TV fine. And now you've got a channel that's told you a few things you should not even know.

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

Seriously, When is she going to have a sheer knocking on the door trying to convert to Shiism?

00:17:41--> 00:18:09

And when is she going to come and have a debate with him? Now I want to question to ourselves, how many of the things that we are watching and I don't want to just say TV, you know, back in the 70s in the 80s He was like a television haraam hair television and even Okay, no that's fine yeah, and guys even today walking around ain't got a TV in my house and Yeah, you got a TV card in your computer my friend right? Or basically younger TV that's fine, but you watch everything on YouTube

00:18:11--> 00:18:41

you watch everything on the computer don't try and fool me that you don't have TV not gonna watch TV with then don't watch YouTube and don't watch other things as well. You got to be honest with yourself if you're watching then you're watching Alright, but anyway, majority of us sitting here I'm not going to sit in front of you and say today right that you know we've all got to go home and start to you know, smash up all these 500 pounds, where it's a bit more expensive now isn't it plasma 42 inch and whatever? Yeah, I'm not going to say that. But what I'm going to say is we've got a question ourselves what first thing is what are we taking in?

00:18:42--> 00:19:06

And do we need it? Do we need it I'm seriously you we've gone from the from the you know, the simple radio that came out and that was a big fitna at that time to a television black and white to a color one to cinema Cinema can before that. And then you've gone to now you've got so many channels, that people actually feel that they've got so much choice.

00:19:07--> 00:19:20

I can watch bollywood, Hollywood, and all of it together. They think there was so much choice and that's the trick. The trick is that that he says that you got choice, but he has left you with choice.

00:19:22--> 00:19:55

You know choices when you got freedom to choose right? When you haven't got freedom to choose. You haven't got choice. I want you to think about what I'm saying. If you pick up a remote and you say no you get your mouse and you start clicking on Asia can be remote it can be a mouse it can be both right? And I'm going to be very honest with it because some people with the remote start flicking and they know the three hours is gone without the nine and some people too many clips on YouTube and I see one on football wow all I need to know about Ronaldinho I need to know about so and so. So So yeah.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Then they've gone football, football, football and after a while something nice

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

to YouTube makes him see something as a car crash. Oh yeah, he

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

crashed. Oh, yeah, plane crash Oh, this crash that crashed on 911 right?

00:20:11--> 00:20:42

So they get into all of these things and then you know they've got two three different two three hours have gone by the same thing is the same concept don't try and make say that I didn't watch TV and I don't want to waste my time on TV when you're wasting the same amount of time in a different way on YouTube or some some other thing on the internet. So honestly speaking let us question ourselves and say what is it that I'm actually watching now you got guys who've got sky right? They've got sky

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

and they flicking through

00:20:47--> 00:20:58

you know once when you watched or you seen a lion kill kill a zebra or something? That's a you watched it? How many lines do you need to see killing zeros?

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

on National Geographic, right? How many crocodile hunting Do you need to see

00:21:07--> 00:21:43

that let's be on the right to for you to get a buzzer all the next crocodile Oh my god, you know. So the same thing. How many soaps or episodes or whatever it is they need to see now the old thing was that they gave you have one one little film movie or one film. And that's it. You've seen it. But now the new thing is that they get you hooked on so that you basically can never stop watching it. I mean, you know we still got EastEnders going on, right? I don't know. I don't watch it. But have you still got it going on? Yes, guys. Yes, guys. No one who said me they're watching the ride.

00:21:44--> 00:22:05

Right is going on. People are hooked on it. They you know, it's that time of the evening, the economists. So they're watching it, so then they'll watch it, that's fine. But then you have to watch it every single day. Right? then they've got these things out there. Now on the go one program. I haven't watched it, but they've got the code the last. And I think a lot of people got lost with that one.

00:22:06--> 00:22:35

Because they couldn't find themselves coming out of it now is that choice? Or is that you've been enslaved? Because seriously, there are people who are who have been given this was facade that they have got a lot of choice, but they are enslaved they are slaves on these technologies that they have bought. is not not these technologies are here for what for us to use them for a purpose. A phone what's the phone? was what do you use a phone Dave asked him on his phone

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

to ring someone, right?

00:22:39--> 00:23:18

That's gone. Gone are the days that you just use your phone just to ring someone, you've got so many things going on on the phone now that the purpose of the phone for being a phone is hardly next to nothing. You've got so many you know, you've got the whole internet there, you've got I want you to get the internet. I mean, you know, you've just opened the whole sea of things. If a person can't control their own cells and they haven't got taqwa inside here, I'm being honest with your brothers and sisters is a very dangerous thing to play around with. You know, they say you play around with fire and you get burned. You know the old saying, I think there should be new sayings. You play

00:23:18--> 00:23:53

around with technology, and you basically diffuse your email. Now I'm being serious about I'm being serious here. There should be a new saying you play around with technology without basically normally fire without thinking that's a fire alarm. You need fire. You need fire to cook things and uniforms. But you don't take fire to the wrong place. The same way technology. If you don't have Taqwa inside here, I am telling you, it's a very, very dangerous thing, especially with the internet on it. Because it only takes a click

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

to close the sin of the eyes.

00:23:59--> 00:24:32

And I will be surprised. I'll ask you a question here. Okay, when asked this question, and I want to know if anyone can put their hands up. Anyone who's seen any videos, pictures, whether it's on the internet, or whether it's on the TV or wherever else you might have seen it. I want you to honestly Put your hands up, if you've seen it, but you've never seen with your eyes The thing that Allah has made prohibited to you, whether it's even a part of the body, could you put your hands up

00:24:34--> 00:24:48

those people here who have throughout their lives once or more than once seen any of these technologies, whether it's on TV or on satellite on internet, and you've never with your eyes seen something that allows prohibited Put your hands up now.

00:24:49--> 00:24:58

Right? We've got about how many hundreds would you say yeah, maybe about three 300 400 people here sitting here right? Not a single person can raise their hand

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Not a single person can raise they can you see how how, how dangerous this thing is? Because what shaytan will do is that he's not going to make you see on the first day, man and I don't do that. See Adam, Allah salam, he didn't come the first day to Adam. And so I'm saying, Listen, I'm your doorman and Jana, right? You got to eat from this tree. If he said that, then he would have been kicked out. He waits, he waits for his chance. And his chance comes slowly, it comes slowly gets you comfortable first. And the thing is, the sin that he makes people do in comfort is a lot more easier for him to delude us and the sin that he makes us do. And we think that we've got an enemy over us

00:25:40--> 00:25:47

see, he has to make us believe that he has to make us believe, first, that

00:25:48--> 00:26:03

he's not our enemy. And second, he's going to make us believe that he doesn't even exist. I'll be honest with you, brothers and sisters, you know, people sitting comfortably in their armchairs and looking at these things, a lot of the time, they don't even think about it, at least,

00:26:05--> 00:26:14

they don't think about it, because it's the designs in the heart that makes them want to see these things. And it's going to be what there's a lot of people a lot of people who will condone

00:26:16--> 00:27:00

You know, I'm being I'm gonna be quite open or they're going to condone with, okay, he jobs are not there doesn't matter for them on TV, on internet or whatever it doesn't matter, then it's like the might be part of the arm showing doesn't matter, it's only the part of the arms, part of the legs doesn't matter. When you start doing these doesn't matter, it doesn't matter. You're already halfway there for shaytan to make you see something completely, which you shouldn't have seen. And there are brothers and sisters who think it's absolutely normal to do this. And the sad thing is that the you know, when we as Muslims, we are seriously looking for our fulfillment of Eman. And what we don't

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

realize is that with our own hands, we have stopped ourselves from tasting the sweetness of the man. You know, sweetness v man take something that you can't start seeing everything that comes across your eyes, and expect to have hello to the man, the Hadees in ama that says that if you come across something that you're supposed to you got lustfully you want to see, and you don't actually see you don't actually put your eyes, set your eyes on it, then Allah will make you taste the Halawa and the sweetness of Eman.

00:27:32--> 00:28:10

And I've tried this a number of times, and you can try a number of times. But one thing you have to do is you have to stop the eyes from seeing things that they're not supposed to see if you want to taste this. If you want to start seeing a closeness without law, when you lift your hands up, then you're in a good, you feel really good and connected to the law. I am telling you right now here that this very technology which is in our hands, which we're using for advantage in some things. It is the very thing that has spoiled a lot of our brothers and sisters, the man and they are not able to get close to a lot because of that.

00:28:11--> 00:28:38

In fact, I will be surprised if someone can have a very close macam to Allah. And they're watching a lot of these things, whether it's on the internet or whether it's on TV, I'll be very, I'll be very surprised. Yes, there are things that are educational other things on these things. All right, I'm not going to say no to that. But what I want to say is the clemency is not just the TV or the Salazar thing, it's you know, you think about the apps on the phone,

00:28:39--> 00:28:47

the apps on the phone or Android whatever it is you've got, there's a limit to what you need. The question is what do I need?

00:28:49--> 00:29:27

My brothers so let us ask the serious question, what do I need because you know what's happening if you start to pick and choose as many things as you want, and they're all enjoyable, you know, you've got this game and you've got that app and you've got you know you're playing this and this there's all the other you know Sony you know entertainment gear that you've got, you know, PlayStation, you've got Xbox, you've got, you know, Nintendo Wii, whatever, you've got these things again, they're making us very comfortable in our things. And I'm not saying to you just to kick it all out, but I'm going to say to you is let's now wait with what we're supposed to have.

00:29:29--> 00:29:42

Because when I'm when the moment comes my brothers, this is a serious question. when the moment comes that I'm standing on the Day of Judgment. And law has said in the Holy Quran, Suzanne germanium and Miss Carla Ratan, Hydra neera

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

neera whoever has been done an atom or committed an act of goodwill see it on the Day of Judgment. Whoever has done an atom's rate of of evil or sin will see it on the Day of Judgment. When I stand up on the Day of Judgment, I will say

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

See all my good deeds in front of me and all my bad deeds in front of me. And I'm being serious here if every evening, okay, we know you already were busy already, you know, we hooked in this little rat race where you have to spend eight hours out of your house. And either it's in work or it's University, it's college, whatever it is, you're already busy. You come home at five, six o'clock. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, you know, after singing, and then you go family, you've got family. And the real sad thing is some people have even sacrificed the family for some of these stuff. You know, for Twitter and Facebook, they'd rather see people on Facebook and see their family members. And I

00:30:40--> 00:30:53

think they they seriously need to, you know, get their own face shaped, you know, shaped up because he's looking like a book. Right? They seriously need to start understanding what families technology is supposed to be used

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

and not loved.

00:30:57--> 00:31:02

And people family members are supposed to be loved and not used.

00:31:04--> 00:31:22

If this is happening in our lives, we've got a serious problem because there are people who come home and they don't even cross each other for a conversation. The guy comes in six o'clock his brother comes in seven o'clock guys have any, you know supper at 630 and 730, microwave microwave let's say he goes up in his room he goes in his room and the both of the

00:31:26--> 00:32:01

brothers don't brothers are not you know, real brothers. He's got more closer friends outside in the cyber world than his own brother. I mean, seriously happening. And mothers with with sons and daughters the family unit is is breaking up. And if this is happening because of technology, there's a serious question, how long am I going to allow this to continue happening to my family as people come home at six o'clock now listen to this year, they come home at six o'clock, they you know, they just about get done, have the supper, see the family for a bit. Okay, and then send the kids to bed, whatever, then they're watching a movie for two hours.

00:32:02--> 00:32:12

Or the watching some programs or they're on their you know, Playstation or they're on some Facebook or Twitter, whatever it is, they're on there. And the next minute, it's time to go to sleep.

00:32:14--> 00:32:38

So they go to sleep after the movies when they go to sleep, wake up in the morning, you know, quick refreshing and go to works eight hours out, they come back again. Maybe one hour in the house family once straight again, technology. Now you tell me where in the world I'm honestly speaking, where in the world have these people got time for the investment for the Africa, because they're gonna end up on the Day of Judgment they're gonna see in front of them. Work,

00:32:39--> 00:32:52

technology, work technology, they're gonna see huge heaps of time for work given and huge heaps of time for technology. I'm not saying don't go to work. But what I'm saying is, you know, somebody wants to Yeah, that's good.

00:32:54--> 00:33:26

benefit. Thank you, Melissa needed that I get 50 126 Pence, I don't want you to sit back and start signing on. All right. That's not what I'm trying to say we need to work as Muslims, we should honestly, we shouldn't have any any frauds amongst us, right, who are claiming and working at the same time. You know, the guy is basically carrying a ladder, right? Every day. And they basically catch him and he's in court and they asked him schooling. Mr. Khan, why didn't you write a letter for? Your Honor? It was exercise.

00:33:27--> 00:33:47

Honestly, it's happened in court. Right? It was exercise, I was exercising a letter on my shoulder. Anyway, my point is, people on the day of judgment will come and they will start looking and seeing what is it that I've got. Now, if we can't spare an hour, two hours, you know what our parents used to do? Now weapon I remember my mother.

00:33:48--> 00:34:06

I remember my mother and I had not my own grandmother, but I like grandma. I'm sure you they will put your hands up and remember this. They still have these things called wazifa. They still got them around. Well, this Yep. Yep. We Hands up if you've seen any one of your mother's Dante's grandmother's Yeah. With the believers. Yeah. Come on. Yes. You know, my mother.

00:34:07--> 00:34:20

And I'm sure you can say the same thing with yourself. And she bought or five of us up together, five of us here. And we're all very close to one another in terms of age, she bought us up in a time when there was no washing machines.

00:34:22--> 00:34:52

There's no dishwashers. They were the dishwashers. They were the you know, thing, you know, the machines that you know, what was told is closed and all that, Honestly speaking, they are to do a lot of stuff. They'll know Mark read those times, right? They bought us up in all that effort and strive and they were under the time when there was even Hoover's around electronically. So who was coming around. They weren't even telephones, telephones around that time. Right. And they bought us up and I still remember seeing my mother still having time for the Prime

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Time for a solid time, full time full time for a visa. I still remember that.

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

Blessed are those women you know, Chef, I know manana tonry Rahim Allah wa he said, one of his writings, he said, I am telling you this is he said this about 100 years ago, he said I'm telling you, many of these women that are in these homes of India or the idea of Allah He said that he actually wrote this I said that you're not realizing this. He said the next generation of women and then following generation of women when they come you will realize that these were the idea of Allah and I'm telling you this that they were the only of Allah, they will remember my you know, someone who would like a grandmother to me, you know, she used to at the end of the day, they just woke up

00:35:37--> 00:36:15

I mean, where are these women going now? These women are on the way to their graves now what have we created? What have we got women growing up and I'm going to have my wife and I'm going to have what my daughter's growing up? And the best thing they find as a pastime is what to see the next movie to see the next soap to see the next what was on technology and this email bombardment and Facebook and so on. I'll see you know, they're giving you things you

00:36:15--> 00:36:24

don't even want I really get annoyed when people send me something that's a waste of my time. I'll be honest with you. I can kind of get quite annoyed because email is just four letters.

00:36:25--> 00:36:51

Yeah, right. Right. Yeah might be fuddy duddy to you right but the thing is emailing these technologies for the purpose he was creating a phone is a phone I really get annoyed when when even a family member of mine will get be on the phone and they're on the phone and they only for more than I think they shouldn't be on it and if you are if you follow me on social media good yeah Hello. What can I do? Get down to the point

00:36:52--> 00:37:01

You get into it you get into football and come on guys honestly speak okay football you support a team right but don't cry when they lose

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

and don't lose your voice when you yell and say you know the basically you know one from it

00:37:38--> 00:38:21

are you doing to yourself a people that have got no link to you whatsoever people have got no link to you whatsoever. And all it is is not it's got nothing to do with Arsenal manual. You know it has to do with you and your little friend. Last night last night you see two new two new dancy Yeah, what is it it's a way of you been under things okay, bit of pastime entertainment, but guy I've seen guys there, they will lose their you know, that didn't come second. That didn't come second World Cup Suhana law, you know, like, you know, what, what was he once he was, I think was Algeria playing some other country I think was England does not know what they were playing there that they must

00:38:21--> 00:38:45

have Salah I'm telling you the sauce right now is about five cents you had about half as of that day. And you think my God, what am to these brothers today? You know, the leather like, Yeah, when the latest we can pray Muslim, you know, looking at Anaconda Dean comes second to this technology. The question, what am I doing? What is it doing? To me, it's enslave me, I know, behind all of that. You got Uncle ebullition and gun.

00:38:47--> 00:39:23

He don't need to come to your doorstep. He's already shoved all this technology in your pockets and in front of you. I'm not saying get rid of all of it. What I am saying is we seriously need to ask ourselves these questions, what is happening to me and the life of my family members? Because, you know, when one of the time we said that, and you can see today, these women in India at the time when he was writing this, they saw it. And there's nothing wrong with this. And I'm saying this whoever sitting here, you know, you know, my friend of liberal democracy, right? And whoever you see in here, and you know, I'm sure this is going to be seen in a lot of places. Look, what we're saying

00:39:23--> 00:39:40

to you is we're not we don't want to keep our women home and lock them up. That's not what we do. But we've got a shared responsibility. We've got we've got something that we have to share responsibility to share that the community out there seriously is crying.

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

The seriously crime because the family model has broken down shattered. is absolutely not i'm not i'm a Muslim as a non Muslim as well. It shot and there needs to be something done to put it back together again. Because without families, you don't have communities. Without communities. You won't have

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

countries and you know you need to seriously I'm not saying you know we get rid of all this technology but what I'm saying is we seriously need to think of what's happening our sisters our mothers if they stay at home and if they do the duty of looking after our children and looking after our family members it's not that we degrading them not degrading them. They've got such a high macom such a high you know station they are their mother and what monotone he said he could see this, the women they're busy and so on cooking and you know, serving their families, their husbands and so on and looking at the hustle. You know how hard that is? You try and do that one day you know, you

00:40:39--> 00:41:14

brothers I'm telling you that one day you try and do that one day clean the nappy and after them cooked make the royalties Yeah, they're gonna look square and after that you know you try and try and make some luck do and you probably got something else in your hand mother make some cement or something right? You try and do it one day and you find out what these women are going through and in the in the midst of all of that so Hannah law these women What they need is not to be given a relaxation at the end of the day with bollywood movies and be for you and this and that and that and then you've got people doing some of receive this but do you want me to if you want to carry on

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

Okay, okay.

00:41:18--> 00:41:58

In the midst of all of that you've got this Islam channels, right and this channel and that channel. Rhonda is what was pointing to you earlier on, is that people now this is a new thing. You know, I want to say this in the open, you got to seriously understand that a lot of these people who've got these channels, they're not after they didn't sit there and make these channels, all of them to try and just teach you your deen they didn't do that. They had that in the media, but they also wanted to make money you know, pesa follows dosh they want to make dosh. So when they when they have these two nears, what they're going to do is they're going to look for, you know, sometimes when they see

00:41:58--> 00:42:05

that they know they're not going to have a platform anymore, that their own seat is at stake. They're going to look for more better than your dean.

00:42:07--> 00:42:28

I know what that means. That means they're not really there to teach you your real Deen as as you should know it, they're going to dilute it. They're going to have advertisements which you shouldn't see. I've seen this on some of these Islam Islam. I won't say that Islam channel, but some of these Islamic channels. You know, you see some of these adverts and you think now we learn with Alec, I thought I was watching something Islamic.

00:42:31--> 00:42:40

I thought that now Bravo has requested Can you please just move slightly for the other brothers coming coming inside? Is this valid food? I seriously started to you know, question.

00:42:42--> 00:43:08

You know, what, what is this? Why are they showing certain things that your eyes shouldn't see on on a channel which you were watching because of purely for an Islamic reason? The second thing is, when the teaching your deen, I tell you the best way to learn something. And this is this is something I will say to you from books that I've read from not books that have been written by Muslim writers there are these are from non Muslim writers.

00:43:09--> 00:43:26

There are non Muslim writers who have written about this. Do you know that the literacy level amongst the early African slaves in America was 98%.

00:43:27--> 00:44:12

at certain times when they found these African slaves, okay, both from Africans on the literacy level of some of these groups was up to 98% of the people could actually read. Now the big question is, why is it that after all of these not 300 years of combined, we've got all this technology in our in our houses, and in our schools and so on? Why is the literacy level lower? Does the TV the internet watching something? Right? Does that teach you more than you picking a book. Because if you pick a book up on a subject, I am telling you, you will learn perhaps 10 to about 50 times more than what you will do by watching a TV program.

00:44:13--> 00:44:44

I'm telling you, I've done it myself, I'd rather read a book because you've got the fact that that what the television needs to do or the videos on the internet need to do is they need to feel them to have fillers, and they waste your time. They waste time you're watching a documentary on history, you will watch them basically how they rode their horses and how they went forward and they got this lawn style. And and basically you've already done about, you know, maybe five minutes of watching this when in a book. You can read the same thing in a paragraph.

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

You can read the same thing in a paragraph. The thing is, what is it that we need? If you need to learn Islam, the best way to learn Islam is to come to your local Imam who you trust because it's a case of trusting someone or you go to a course that you can trust. I

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

You learn your Islam, if you stick it to the television you will learn your whole Deen from from the television. You can have one gun. This is how it has happened a lot of times I've had people questioning they said to me Imams, or they said, on Wednesday night, this guy came on the QA. And he said that this you know, the women that were the gold, women that were the gold, they they should pay zakat on it. Right. And the next day, I had a good next day I watched the same channel with a different Imam who in q&a, and he said the gold they don't have to pay zakat on it.

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

So now he's telling me I'm watching the same channel.

00:45:41--> 00:45:59

I'm trying to understand what it what it is. And I said to him, Look, you don't learn your deen from these from these instruments. These are not things you can acquire information on the internet is very good in terms of you getting information really quickly. But you know what, what what happened? I'll tell you what is one thing and I'll stop with this.

00:46:01--> 00:46:22

There was a time from Rasulullah sallallahu his time till the time when they start to collect the Hadith in books in the time up to the time where like Eman Bukhari and so on. Yeah, there was a time there were about 150 to about 200 years, they did not they did not write a lot of it down. They just kept it in their memories.

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

And the moment they started to write it down,

00:46:28--> 00:46:36

the allama said that they have taken knowledge from the hearts and they placed it onto the eyes.

00:46:37--> 00:47:24

You know how profoundly they've taken knowledge from the hearts because it was in the hearts of people and they put it into the eyes a lot of the things that we're trying to view and understand and learn if you actually try an old method to learn it is probably still better than some of the new methods and anyway Docomo hired for your for your time and coming down. I asked you to make one for myself and May Allah give me two feet on YouTube as well to steer away from the tribulations which are within our lives and not to be enslaved by these products. To the extent that are accurate on a journey to the next life is sacrificed. And last last thing I will say to you is let us just

00:47:24--> 00:47:34

think, okay, every day we're doing this, what have I got in my bag to take from my Acura? Whatever so today I'm about to take from my Acura vasudevan and hunkeler vlog
