Firstly to my brothers and sisters who are here saramonic munakata locata
love bless all of you who have taken this evening out, it's a sacrifice for you, small probably sacrificed for you than for myself to have taken this evening out, I know the food is very fun. And wherever there's whenever there's food, there's always a good crowd. So is the Facebook 100 laugh, you've made the sacrifice my life except your intentions. Now I need you to be attentive, the more attentive you are, the more attentive I will be. If you
if you show me that you will kind of you know not too keen or getting retired, then it's going to mean I'm gonna have to cut short as well. Right? So if you pay attention to this,
the lecture itself for the remainder is about the Muslim students.
All of you are students. Is there anyone here who's not a student? Please put your hand up
if you're not a student,
So if I rephrase the question, if I say if you're not a student of Islam, put your hand up.
Good. And you might be a student of the university.
But it's not to say that you're not a student of Islam. And just remember they
went to one of my dearest chefs, who I spent just a very few moments with a few days with him is in the service. I wish I could have spent a lot longer with him. His name is Sam Han, viola. And he had on his passport till the till he died at the age of 86. Till he died. He had on his passport, his occupation was valuable. He was a student of knowledge
on his passport, the occupation was valuable in the student of knowledge.
Or I want to say to you, brothers and sisters, is that no matter how much we, uh, no matter what we do, we're always learning. We're always learning. There's no one who's got nothing. And you could become I know you've titled this the Muslim Student, but one of our dear chefs chefs name, May Allah give me a long knife. I mean, he said that there's a difference between a student and a parliamentarian, you're gonna madrasa they'll call you a polygon.
And they'll say that you are different from students. So we would say in a share, what are you saying? polygon means the one who's seeking knowledge.
And a student is one who's seeking knowledge. So I said Natale Buddha is when a student that the difference is tolerable or in the one who is a particular style, it basically means one who's seeking and his knowledge. He says, He said that the one who seeks knowledge actually goes to the knowledge.
And one was a student is fed knowledge.
In some different No, you guys, you come to the lecture theater, and you sit down with your lecturers, you know, they've got these wonderful boards, and they've got the slides and they've got these notes for you and our students as well. Don't read those to do unless you have to read them, right. Unless you have to read them. You don't read them. 90% of people who come to these lecture theatres, you've got all your notes from the beginning of the year, but you don't really do
Unless you have to read the my exam times coming to you read them. If you really have to know about something, you read them otherwise you just come to the lecture theatre. It gives you a wonderful presentation. And you sit there listening and say, that's good, fine. What's the next piece? What do you have to do? What's the coursework? Now the coursework or something might make you read it. But you don't necessarily have to go through all the notes that they've given you. And he said, that's one difference between a student and the Taliban, because the Taliban will actually go in search of the knowledge.
And when he goes and searches the knowledge, he's actually wanting to take the knowledge from its source, rather than sit somewhere where the knowledge can come to him. And I'm Buhari Rahim Allah, he was asked, now we all know who even Buhari is, Rahim Allah, he was asked once by a king of one of the lands where he visited
And a king said, I'd like you to come to my residence, the palace and teach my son the prince, Islam and Hades.
So you know, even Buhari said, Ramallah, he said, Tell your son, the prince to come to my residence.
I'm now going to your palace
of Islam really what we call the island, because our aim is different from the sciences. Our aim is different.
And when you're tolerating you're a different person from a student.
And I want you to take a few things today is that you can transform the lives of students to target what
does not go to people, people come to
me, knowledge does not go to people. Knowledge is something which
something which people go to
that visitor and I really miss something. Another difference, the chef name, he said is that
when you're a student, the knowledge itself is a goal in itself. The knowledge is the goal.
You got for example, you know, you got your you're studying medicine, you're studying engineering, studying, biomedical, medicine, whatever it is, whatever you becoming, that in itself is your goal. He's one acquire that, and it's only lead you to a job. And that's what you're interested in. And that job is going to lead you to money.
And that's where it's going. Can you see, he said that a student for example, if you if you listen to this carefully, a student For example, He only wants to learn because it's going to bring him to this dunya
you learn, you know, you get your GCSEs you get your a levels, you can't get to a nice universe like this. Apparently, this is one of the best universities outside London.
Congratulations to all of you who have made it here. I can't say that for for my brother the demand for it. But in general, it
doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
Wherever you are a student or your colleagues don't don't don't count guys don't cause a big right here. So just a little joke
that my brothers are demand said don't worry. I mean, it's not about them being University of Leicester is about you whether you can become valuable anymore. No, that's the whole point of this talk. So if you become valuable, you will be much much further than the students who are here at University of Leicester. Okay. Now, the thing is, you get your grades you get to the university, you get to a good university and then it leads to a job. A good job means a good salary and a good salary means the dunya
Our aim is different.
You choir in, then you go to the Harmon. He goes through practice and who you're practicing for, you're practicing for Allah. And you practice for Allah's Messenger. He according to Sunnah, and that will lead you that will lead you to Hassan, Hassan that is what is good deeds. You know, you know you don't practice the religion, because you're after what you're after money. You don't do that.
People have done that people people are doing that all over and I don't know whether you're aware of it or not suddenly people are doing it. People will do presentations by the standard teach you I mean there's nothing wrong in your teaching style and taking some some money in return of the time that you give. There's nothing wrong with that. The fact why is there in many different areas of the world that you can do that is totally valid if that's the only means that's fine. But to actually do it so that you can you can use it as a means for money is not right. So if somebody goes into Kira for example, somebody starts to learn how to recite the Quran. Can they do it because they want to
go to an event and they want to say that Cara in such a beautiful sound, sort of beautiful voice and they want everyone to
praise them and the one of the pockets to be filled in after that, that is not right.
And you see, the guy comes and you know, he's going to dress properly and he's going to sit there. No.
That's what I wanted to hear.
He won't even come to your event because if you don't pay me enough money, you won't even come to the event.
He's gonna price.
And it's sometimes in the hundreds and hundreds and sometimes in the 1000s there are those who will, who will give you something of Islam and what they really want is that they want the status
they want the status for those who will give you will teach you something, but all they want is they want something to themselves. And what does that do that not taking you to the army and has an ad that's not doing that if you're doing if you're if you're here for any if you're here for knowledge,
then knowledge is something that you have respectful in the sense that that knowledge was given to you by Allah and you will use that knowledge for Allah sake. Now I'm not saying here guys don't get the wrong message. I'm not saying here that you know, you're here University of left less the some asking you to open a section for studies of body you know, it's going to be the studies of Muslims that his body says the Quran, so you're gonna go outside, they're gonna say to the, you know, to whatever deem that is out there, you're gonna say, you know, where's where's the lecture theatre for, for the Quran. And I'm telling you, right now, I'm not sitting anymore. You know, I'm not
asking you to do that. But what I'm asking you to do is to renew, and to think about your intentions. If you're here for any reason, you're here more for a lot than anyone else. And that means that you need and your intention should be that allows, oh, Joel, His Messenger has said to us, that your livelihood is part of a thing that you have to do, you have to earn your livelihood, you have to provide for your family, you have to provide for yourself, you have to look after yourself as part of my, my team. So if I'm here because I want to please Allah, I'm honestly here in university of left Leicester, or the month or whichever other universities I'm here to please Allah,
then you look for the pleasure of Allah. And how do I find the pleasure of Allah? The first thing is that I'm going to clear my intention. You can't have an intention that I'm here can make a few you know, get a good grade, get some bucks and out there, I'm finished. I'm going to do whatever I want after that. Now you can't. Why are you here, if you want to be true to learn, if you're here for the surge of knowledge, you're going to understand that you are here to serve Allah, you are here to serve the messenger, sallallahu alayhi Salaam in the sense that you're going to follow him sooner. Now, if if I'm here for that reason, if I'm here for that reason, then the whole life changes, the
life changes. Because you might think to yourself, Well, why? Why do I have to do that for some of you sitting here, and I've got different people sitting in front of me, some of you are probably just not practicing so much. Some of you are, you know, just post practicing or just started to get practicing. Some of you are in a semi practicing, and some of you are a bit more practice and some of you are even more practicing. Right? You probably never thought that that's there's so many categorization and practice.
And you got to move to the levels. You got to move to the levels. Because if anyone sitting here and they think, well, I'm a practicing Muslim,
that's not a my brother, my sister. That's not a because practicing has many levels. I've seen them.
I've seen brothers without a beard.
Brothers without a beard, but they've got the most excellent heart. And I've seen brother some brothers
with beards. And you know, their heart, you could say is the Blackstone.
When I say the Blackstone, I don't mean in a holy way.
I mean, a non holy way. Right? The sisters who will maybe there might not wear the hijab, and i'm not i'm not i'm not saying to a brother not to give the beard. I'm not saying that to sister not not to wear the hijab, but our sisters who may not wear the hijab, but our sister is not into boys. She's not into making, you know, a glamorous appearance so that she can attract boys. She's not into that she just doesn't wear the hijab, because she just hasn't made her frame of mind to wear the hijab.
Not saying that's right. But let's look at the heart. The heart is that she's not, you know, outset is that she's not wearing the hijab.
But inside the
The reason is that she's just not ready for it. It's not and she doesn't want anyone to force her to do it.
But she's not doing it. You know, she's not, she's not, you know, making up a hair and her makeup or makeup on a face, whatever, because she wants to attract those boys. And if a boy wants to come to her, and and you know, start flirting with boy was stuck, stuck to the flat in front of her. She wouldn't be the type that would accept it. She would keep her kind of you know, taqwa. And she's got this moral consciousness of you know, there are certain people honestly, we're gonna categorize people properly. There are some people who won't do something because of religion. Don't understand the wrongness of religion and there are others who won't do because of a moral conscience. They've
got guilt inside. They just feel as bad as a human they feel is bad. Why should I sleep with another man? or a boy? You know, who's who's trying to flirt with Why should I go towards that? I don't feel right. I feel morally that I want to, you know, be pure. And a sister in my in, according to what I've studied with the Sharia, right, that is the man that has the job on ahead. But our sister is far better than the other one. Who wears her her job. Right? And she wears he with a pompom at the top. Yeah. And she's probably got, you know, all the fashions, stylish job, that when you look at it, the sun will glitter.
And she when she's walking down, I mean, it's the you know, she's got a red, she's got maybe a pink scarf. And like pink lipstick.
She got eyebrows a shape, you know, and she's got fingernails that you know, it's like
unicorn Catwoman. I can become beautiful Catwoman. She's got an abaya with so many studs on it, the glittering every part of it is like it's attraction. It's all over her, you know, right down is one of these, you know, fancy cutlery or buyers or whatever they want, you know, and it's really appealing. And then if you look at shoes, she's got like, so many inches on top. So she's really five foot five, but she looks bad for nine.
And every move, you know, when she sees a brother, you know, she every move is like, you know, Brother, do you wish you had me?
sisters is wearing this. She's wearing the job. She's wearing the job. But to me that Sister Sister is not any better, in fact, worse than the other system.
And I'm not saying don't get me wrong. I'm not saying don't wear the hijab. I'm not saying that. But what is the point of us having an outer life, Oxfam, when here, we haven't gotten here. People are going to be there are people I've met, who will practice Islam, because of what others are making others opinions, others making opinions about them. That's why they're practicing their Islam. And it really gets on my nerves.
Get some manners because you know, if you keep your beard and you wear your hijab because of others opinions, did you see us to do for law sake? Why are you going to say to a lot of depth gentlemen, you're going to say Allah I will this Egypt for your sake. All I kept this beard for your sake, Allah I wish to go to Juma for your sake. But it is for Allah sake, then whether you're in the heart of Leicester Sharif,
whether in the university there should be no double standards, right?
There are sisters who will leave the house with the HR one. And they will come back with the Java but in between it was Mary Monroe.
In between he was someone else when that scarf came off. She was someone different than our brothers who will who will be the best brothers in the house with the parents and looking after the parents and when they go to university his walking changes his style of walking change and I mean when he's in Leicester Sharif and is the heart of Leicester he's like
can walk with his eyes Daniel stuff with
the sisters now they should they should they should don't bet my supplier when it comes to the universities that
I've seen these guys.
And what's inside here? What why did why did you act so good. Inside your hometown and there are brothers some of you are not from Leicester. Some of you are from up north. Some of you are from down south, wherever all over the country that brother told me. So So where are you from? If you have a different life, to where you are, you're not sincere For God's sake. for LASIK, you're not sincere. Now you need to start checking yourself my brother, because the times when you do those actions you need to say Am I doing it for Allah sake because if he's for Allah sake, then they don't change
Weather doesn't change, communities isn't changing. Environment doesn't change it. Friends don't change it. Night doesn't change, it doesn't change it, I am who I am. And that's because a lot of changes. So if our law never changes, and I'm doing it for Allah, therefore I don't change. Ha See that's That's true. That's the true identity of a Muslim. But it gets for all these other reasons, you find so much hypocrisy you know there are bubbles, who will never never say a foul word out the mouth when in the masjid or when they with other brothers are practicing, but then they go to another group and they're starting to say you know foul language because they want to they want to
live up to it. He's like, you better rate me man. Do it, you know, and they start saying F and bla bla bla bla bla what other words foul language they want to use. Right? There. Are there other sisters as well. I want to say that there are sisters who will be in the company of one another. Who when they when the job is they'll be one way
and when they go to different scene or scenario will be different. So my sister asked, you know why? Why is it different? If you are true for Allah and Allah didn't change? Allah azza wa jal is Mario salata. illawarra, do you get in a gathering of three and you have the secret conversation? Allah is the fourth amongst you? Well, a concert in India who said this, whom you're in the company of five. And the sixth person a lot in mind is not for me. Sujata. Allah is Allah. Allah is there. So you could go sleep and talk about whatever you want. The gossip shouldn't change, because I'm different. Now I know brothers and sisters who handle law. They've got Facebook and Twitter, and they've got
different ways of communicating to different people on the same app.
I'm serious. I don't know you. So you're looking sharp man. He's read my mind. Oh, my God.
I'm serious about this. Because you know, some of these I don't know, if you've got, you got one of these accounts. So you better be careful what you say. Because anyone can see. The whole world can see. So what do they do? I see them that when they talk to certain people, they'll talk religiously, when they talk to others is different. There are brothers who want to get my two sisters. Right. And if not, I just want more than one, say this to be said that I want to remind the sister when I proposed to her suddenly she shot her facebook account.
And it goes out to be suspicious. Why did why she shot in her facebook account.
And when I start to look where she's on Twitter, it was already shot before I loved it.
And then he decided he's not going to marry her
because he's already getting suspicious. Now brothers and sisters, I'm telling you, if I live my life, I'm leading you for Allah sake. Let it be for Allah sake. Because Allah azza wa jal says in
through the mouth of a prophet sallallahu wasallam man, Amina harmala, Whosoever has done any action, Ashoka Fiji's IE, who has associated somebody else in that action with myself in that action, Tara to Who am Allah, I have left him to his action to himself or to herself, I have less than to that action.
Another Hadith says in Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah doesn't look at your appearance is more than he looks at your heart. That's what the heart is in. That doesn't mean he doesn't look at your appearances at all. At all. It doesn't mean that it means more than he looks at your appearances. A lot looks at our hearts and in our hearts. That's where taqwa is, that's where the fearing of god that's where the consciousness of God is. And according to the amount of consciousness of God I have, that's how practicing I will be. And I'm telling you, brothers and sisters, we need to move up the level. So what is moving up the levels? Number one is, number one is, if your heart hasn't seen, or hasn't tasted the beauty of Allah and
His Messenger, then you're outside cannot last.
I want to make this quite clear. There are brothers and sisters who come in the dean. And they go back at the D. They came in, they went out at the Hulu fi you holla Dubey, Allah says no, one part. But the hypocrites he says they came in and they went back out. I don't want to be a person who just comes in Islam, and you know, practicing Well, I mean, University of Leicester and I'm different. And then after that, later on, I changed or they said this the opposite for some people. They were practicing before they came to the University, and they're not practicing within the university, and then they will go back to their own own places. I've met all sorts of people because I'm humble
enough. I have
a lot of people that I've met over the years, and I asked them, ask them, What are you doing and I assist them and I talk to them, and I get information out of them. And I'm not gonna say their names to you. But it represents to me lives that are out there. Lives are out there, and they weren't in a crisis.
Why brothers? Why sisters in a crisis is because if you haven't, if you haven't made up with Allah here in your heart, there's no point of view, trying to make up with everything else. And I'm not saying you're a hypocrite, because you've got a job in your head. You still haven't got the true taqwa. I'm not saying you're a hypocrite, you've got a beard. And you haven't got a true true taqwa. I'm not saying that, please, brother, I'm pleased to see if you listen to this. And you've made your effort to at least make the outer change hamdulillah. That's one step forward. Now you got to change the inner. And if you're a person here, who hasn't changed the outer, but your inner has already
changed. You are fearful of God and our handler, you've made a bigger step. Now you just need to make the small step which is the outside part. That is still a major step, but it's smaller in comparison to the other one.
You're understanding me or am I losing somebody? You'll understand me? Yes. Can you say yes, together, please?
Yes, sir. No, sir. Three bags.
Now, if you understand me, what that means is that the first step is one that I have to reconcile with a law here. Most people why they don't practice Islam is because they don't really know who Allah is.
There's one thing of being told who Allah is.
And there's another to take that telling that information to actually recognition, recognition, and information are two different things.
You all know, you all know
that you've got exams at the end of this year. Yes.
For some of your exams,
you will know yes or no, yes. Okay. Now, the belief that you've got right now, but the exams at the end of the year today, it's November.
And there's still another six to seven months left for your exams.
You are shifting, that's fine. But when the term is the belief of your exams coming up and your lifestyle right now, is it the same or is it different, when may comes?
Different same counselors different? Why is it different? Because you know, your exams are coming right now. But in May, you're gonna believe your exams are coming
to exams, I believe he's like, forget it.
I can concentrate on things else. This is this is coming. Now that's the difference. If you know Allah, and if you believe a lot, meaning that if you know Allah is watching you, and you believe Allah is watching, there's a massive difference. Most Muslims, they know Allah is watching them, but they don't believe I'm less fortunate.
Believing different mother, sister, if you know right now, right now, right now, let's say for example, university holds, right?
And you go into a in an area where there's no cameras.
There's no cameras.
And you go to another area with his cameras. If you're conscious of it, you you'll be different. Yes or no. For some of you, if you start driving,
you might watch your speedometer.
One way when there's no cameras around, and another way when the cameras are up, because you believe in that you're being watched, and believing that you're being watched, and knowing certainly that you've been watched is different from just knowing that I might be watched that's different. Most Muslims, they are not practicing because they're in this stage of just knowing that God God's watching them. They know Allah is rock man. Allies Rahim. Allah is the most most they know that. But they don't believe in that. I'm not saying they don't believe at all. No, no, please don't get me wrong. It's just that that thing hasn't really settled properly in their heart. When we say you
believe in Allah watching you, we mean that you've got a conscious, you know, you've got a constant awareness that Alaska is watching you. And when that happens, see this is this son is most Muslims they either look, let's let's be clear. Have you all heard that Hadith Have you been another famous hadith of gibreel? jabril Allah when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he puts his knees to his knees, he puts his hands on his face. Yes, yes. Yes. And then he asked him three questions. What's the first question? What is Islam? What is the next question? What is Eman was the third question? What is your son? So what happens is that Rasulullah sallallahu Listen here, look,
look, we this this will sum it all up. Rasulullah sallallahu said what and I asked him what is Islam? And he when he asked what is Islam? That's the first thing you come to in Islam. You come with the outer submission, most people in Islam will come with the outer submission, outer submission. So that means that you said the Shahada. So step number
one, or 1.0 the very first step is what that you've actually said a shadow Allah Allah Allah wa shadow number Hernando DeSoto
You believe that's fine, that's step number 1.01 point or you could call it 1.1 right saying the Shahada 1.2 is that you do what you want you do your Salah, what do you do? You said is 1.2 1.3 is that you fast in the month of Ramadan 1.4 is that you give us a chi if you always occur at 1.5 is you do if you can do your Hajj out of this 1.1 1.2 1.3 every single Muslim has to do, but what is that? That is all the outer,
this holy outer. Then jabril asked from Salallahu alaihe salam, he says, she's not going to another level. He says What Is he mad? Now he man is not dealing with the altar anymore. He man is dealing with the inner. So this means now here 2.1 is your belief in Allah now? Why would a minute he said what is Islam? And he said and Tasha Allah insha Allah, that you testify that there is no God but Allah and you testify that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is the messenger of God, you testify that you've already done that. Now he asked another question. He says what is he man believe and resourcefulness gives a very similar answer he says that you believe in Allah. Now, there's
something different here has to be something different here. When Rasulullah sallallahu in the first part in 1.1, said, you say the Shahada and you believe in Allah, that is your outer that's your tongue here, my friend. That's your your your Salah, that's your outer body trying to get close to Allah.
But when he said 2.1, your Eman you believe in Allah. That penetration, that depth. That's absorbance that's something that will go deep inside your heart. That's a man see man is when that Islam is going in and absorbing into the heart that is the name of a man. So when he says to me I've been lucky means that I've already got my outer going on. I've got my hijab going on. I've got my beard going on. I got my Salah going on. But to get my heart going, I have to now look at 2.1 and took me and I believe that I carry on believing in Allah I carry on allowing that to get inside.
Has anyone done any barbecue in here
Mashallah good Alibaba King as well? Yeah. I love it. I love cooking as well. I don't do anything Elisa to the sisters have a lot of other cooking.

hi to my sister who's behind the water. Because she was the one who made each give money my friend told you to use the credit Panda and just gave it to a go go shop by the chicken Chi for the
barbecue for you is that when you cook barbecue, when you do roast chicken and when you do barbecue yet who started tasting
When you do it, when you marinate it, when you might need it. You can mind you can bring the raw chicken and you can marinate it and put it straight onto the grill.
And you can mine it today. And you can wait for tomorrow or you can wait for three days in the fridge slides like in the fridge or you can freeze it for about six, seven days. And then take it out defrost it and you can then cook it.
Right. Which one's going to be more tastier.
The second one, yes, some guy knows. But barbecuing is good.
If you didn't mind it straight away and you put it straight on. It hasn't absorbed what hasn't happened. It hasn't absorbed when it hasn't absorbed the mind. It hasn't gone into the meat. And when you go into the meat, you just taste the mind eating on the surface of it. But you won't taste the inside inside of the room. You know we just white chicken. That's all we cooked. But it's just bland chicken.
But if you allow the manager to absorb that Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah scrumptious lunches, it tastes nice from beginning to end.
Now what I'm trying to say to you is pasting Islam on top of me everywhere. Yep. What I'm looking like a nice Muslim outside. That's just getting the raw chicken and just pasting the barbecue paste.
But allowing that to go into my heart is a man. That's when he really tastes nice. That's when I'm going to feel good about my Islam. The most
people why they don't feel good. Yeah, they come in they, they try to be practicing. They don't feel good about it. Why? Why? Because you haven't allowed that it's time to absorb into yourself into your heart. So when I said 2.1, is that until
you believe in Allah, you make a conscious conscious and a constant effort to think that allies watch me allies with me try and make that more and more. That is absorbance. of Eman. And when it comes to the next thing to point to, he said when
you think about the angels,
because honestly, it's a beautiful thing to think about angels. Right now we've got hundreds of angels here, because we're talking about a lot of the hundreds and 1000s of them here.
Sometimes just to think about it, think that you know, you hear it sometimes just to think when you look, I'm thinking right now. And I'm actually thinking about these two shoulders. So I'm walking, and I'm maybe doing my will do something just to think that this one is writing.
When I'm sitting to think that one is writing, when I'm when I'm doing this one is writing, when I start using foul language, that one is writing.
And they've gone
out of time, about a continental body. Now that you have come now that you have gone further time, now that you have come back and to think of that, to think about the fact that you know when you when you come to when you're just doing is talar so when you sendings you say Salalah Juana stringy Dina,
he was, he was right now I just said it. According to the Hadees they are not in use, who go around the Earth looking for people who send salutation and Mr. Lawson, they've just come. They're just taken. They can all go to Medina, they're going to present it to the Salesforce ruler, his his spirit, they're going to present it to you and perhaps have lots of will say Salaam back.
And they're going to return back in a moment. And they're going to spread on me and send on me 10 mercies of God.
Just to think every time I'm saying it, that process is happening.
So the HANA learner did that to me and I've been you know been melodica to absorb that conscious effort of what the angels are doing. And Allah is holding his arm is working. You see the wind blow you see wind blow, that is this, these are angels are actually making the wind blow. You see the clouds that are sailing across the sky. These are angels that are there that are holding those clouds that are saving those clouds across the sky. Allah has said that in the Holy Quran, he has said one moon select your own one artifact. The angels have control the severe winds Allah talks about that in the in the in the hologram. All this weather is being controlled by the by the angels.
You can have a curse the weather. If you ever think about
it, we're going to be reading the books. How can I believe more in the books 2.3. I'm going to believe more in the books. How by studying the book, my friend, if you haven't yet, just read the Quran from beginning to end once in your lifetime.
That's a big disservice to me and my love. And to the whole reseller has given me a message. I've never read the Quran from beginning to end. Because I've never even attempted to read it. I'm asking you, brother and sister to do this. I'm going to ask you that you make it a mission that today you start today. I want you to start today. Any question you got at home, don't tell me you haven't got one. And you haven't got one go to the internet. Oh, free there.
Now the bad thing about having free stuff is no one ever uses it.
You know, when you get free buy one country,
people get downloads free. Most things that you get free. You don't want to even use because you've got no value for it.
Going by yourself or put it the English language and I want to say one thing to you, you're gonna say to where where can I find the time to read it. And I want to go through some of the backups I've just hit up earlier on, which is sometimes what I've gone into, you know, you can go to Twitter, and you can start seeing what people have actually started to send messages to one another. And I'll be honest with you 97% of what people are sending on Twitter, Facebook and the new one WhatsApp
97% and blackberry messenger. But the sending to one another is a load of rubbish.
If you read if you read and you go to Twitter and you can start going to people's account, you can start seeing what the first message of the day
can be. Did you wake up
next, the other guy sent me back. I woke up at 845 next one, come back. Yes Look next one.
I wish I wish the frying pan was a bit better man in my house. Why are you talking a frying pan out? to someone who's outside your house? who's never gonna use your farm? Can you talk about your scrambled eggs? how they turned out? Yeah. Want to know what time you actually woke up unless you actually you know, it's important to get to the airport or something or to get to some Salau, whatever it is, is different. Why are you just talking about gibberish? After gibberish? And then you know what you do? You just scroll down, right? Scroll down the messages. And if you've got your own Facebook account and your own Twitter account, all you have to do just scroll down, scroll down,
right? So it's gone. And you go back one month, two months, three months, four months, five months, and I've got scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll down for 12 months, and the things you know that you see, yeah. What's up, man? For man? What's happening, man?
scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll. Right? You know what time the guy came out of school? what time it is what time? You know, what is that doing all sitting together? The watching citizen can scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll, right? You go all the way down. And then you see now right after about 12 months of scrolling down the amount of text.
The amount of text if the time they spent reading the book of Allah, they could have finished it
could have finished. You know, on the day of judgment, can you imagine right on the Day of Judgment for us people forget the people 100 years ago, 200 years ago, yeah, few 100 years ago, 200 years ago, they're gonna have different accounts for us, right? It's gonna be, you know, what's gonna happen in our time, when we get up on the Day of Judgment is going to be the grid biggest regret here is going to be Oh, my God, I wasted so much time on these devices.
That's gonna be a massive regret. I'll tell you one thing, a lot of people 100 years ago, they're not going to have those regrets. We think that we are better than them. We got technology, much better. We can do worldwide internet service. We think we must bear you know, those guys. I think they were.
They were better. If the guy had to go and commit adultery. He had a mission Mission Impossible.
series that I had to like, look at her from a distance while he's working on the farm and give a quick look before anyone sees anything. He's still working with this haystack. And he's got to somehow get close to where he caught. Because the dad's watching your brother's watching uncle's watching the old watching. And it never gets too close. Her dad will come and do the circumcision again.
And he might do so well. He might not have anything left. You know? So he's gonna insert a thing you know, how do I get to her? Now she goes to a house is in a village right? She goes to the house. He goes into an in his house and all he can do just dream of the face that he just saw. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Now if he ever comes out in the nighttime out of his door, the nighttime you know, those village if you've ever lived in a village that you hear the status Creek is that people get up? He's not a thief. Right? Imagine a catch him with his pants. And
you know, the guy's gonna think twice now how she gonna come out? Oh, my God, if they ever caught her caught him, right? That beat them to anything that do horrible things to them. Now they lose the whole life is so difficult to get together.
But today, you know, you think you've got technology and you seem that you can see her You can view her. You know, you've got these webcams, you've got these, you know, you think you think what you think this is? This is luck. I think this is damn unluckiness that has light that's just come straight on to our tables. is seriously seriously the worst thing that could could because you don't have to go out you don't have to spy you don't have to seek to go out in your own room. If a man wants to see his own room, in the depth of the night, close his door What pornography all night if you want to do that he's done it.
He's in the same guy 100 years ago would have taken you know, a decade to try and plan and do you would have done it in one night. And then one night.
You think what do you think this is this is making a legend easier. I will always say to you brothers and sisters, these, you know, these technologies that we've got, please be careful.
It's a very dangerous thing. We've got it. And we have to use it now. And again, please be careful what you need from it, take it, what you don't need from it. Please don't bring trouble to yourselves. And I will say that I've scrolled down and I've seen down I think to myself Yella, you know, these people what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment are going to stand there with the biggest regrets with what they waste the time on. There's guys in universities who are crying at the end of the year because they wasted their life throughout the year. On what on all these gadgets on texting or emailing on mobiles on 4g, 3g, whatever you want to call it. They've done that throughout
the year. They've got to get I mean, you know, I think I think you
No, it's just a such an annoyance that you got to phone. People can get into your time anytime they want, people can just ring you and start taking time off you anytime they want.
This just as such, no, I'm not saying to you, I'm not saying to become Taliban.
I'm not saying go home and start smashing the TV. No, we heard a lecture. I'm not saying take your iPhone, whatever it is inside, you know, burying it somewhere in the soil. What I'm saying to you is, we've got to have a clear a clear thing of how much we're using of this. And to use it in the right service. I want to say to you something which, you know, I moved to tomorrow, my colleagues now you can see what time now what you could do with your time brothers and sisters here. You know, people say normally I've got time for this angle time for that. But what have you got, if you really saw you could do this, and I'm going to say something to you. And this has really inspired me.
Inspired by one of my colleagues, he said, he said, You know, he was in the service of planning for about nine years in Pakistan. That was funny.
And he said, most lessons, Molina is a very punctual person, very punctual with his time. 758, every day 758
he would finish his meeting with one person,
eight o'clock, his meeting with another person will start.
Two minutes in between 758 comes
most attacking he, as soon as that person leaves with certain grabs a book from behind him.
He looks inside, he finds a Hadith, he takes a reference bookmark puts it where he wants it, the other person has arrived in two minutes time at eight o'clock, he shuts the book. And then he puts it back into the shelf.
And he starts the next meeting. at eight o'clock next day, same schedule 758, that person leaves at o'clock, the next one's coming. But before he comes, he takes the book out the same book of yesterday. He then opens it, he finds exactly where the bookmark was. And he then copies the reference over to a notepad.
Whatever he wants to copy over, he comes over to a notepad, the guys here, put the book away, and then they have a meeting. Next day, he takes another reference on next day, he does the same thing over so many days of two minutes.
So many days of too many so many weeks or two minutes, he wrote an entire book.
He wrote an entire book. So behind the line of him, and people say I've got time. Now these spare moments that the student has got, you know, you guys are rich with time you rich with time,
you don't realize it and you're not gonna realize until you get married,
then half of your time goes and then when you get a child, then you know, another quote is gone. You get another child and eight is gone. You're left with about an eighth of your time. And you get another child or something you know you're living on like one 16th of her life. You know, the rest of is gone to your wife and it's gone to your husband wherever and gone to your children. You will realize that time you guys have free free is anything
you don't read washes your clothes. The takeaway provides the food. Yeah, well, you have students accommodation where you live on big beans, and Mashallah Alhamdulillah you're doing that and hamdulillah you live in a chicken and chips every single day. Please be careful. Yeah, one of the cases we're living you're living on, but you haven't got worries about all these expensive things that you know, once you get into real life. And what the the whole point here is that when Rasulullah sallallahu in Islam said to us, he said 2.3 about the book and he said 2.4 What better book Can you guys study at this time.
And I want you to do one thing when you start it up. And when you read through, there's gonna be passages you will not understand. I want you to mark them to just put a marker, leave it, move on to the next part and then carry on reading current reading for another mark and you probably have loads of you know, the oh you know the little tags, color tags, just just just stick stick them on your graph. The minute you find any man,
locally, man, whoever is piece by piece, the question that you have, go through and say Ma'am, I never understood this ayah that you took me Nikita, that you believe in the book, you got to know what Allah azza wa jal has said to us before you go into the next thing is what is that I have to practice what I've actually you know, what I read, were called to be heroes to the messengers to learn about the lives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One thing you can do as students, as you've all got these, you know, iPods and all these other gadgets that you got there, put them to good use some of your driving to the university every single day, put it to use, just need to listen
to some lectures on a systematic order. I remember I was working 45 minutes every day to take them to get their 45 minutes back to get back home so much 50 minutes here. So I took the whole series a collection of one of these shapes on the Syrah of the purpose of the law is lm 48
Different CDs I think it always was cassettes, it was there. And I listened to all of it over weeks. And it was a wonderful Listen, you know, it's nice you're in traffic, you're you're you're, you're just driving, it doesn't bother you much about what's happening with the traffic because you listen to the lecture, and you're learning at the same time. So learn about the lives of the prophets. And whichever you know, shape you want to get of the lives of the Prophet, you learn that. And then 2.5 you need to you need to start deepening our we all need to start deepening our faith of the afterlife. And how do we do that? We have to start reading about it, we have to start thinking about
it, we have to start living it that that means that I sit down and I should visualize myself dying. After visualize myself going in the grave. visualize myself coming on the Day of Judgment, visualize standing in front of a live visualize my skills visualize what where's my book gonna be given to me? visualize? How will I cross the syrup? What will I be doing at that time when the Bridgeville will be ahead of me visualize the jahannam and saving myself from Jana? And what actions are taking me to a journal and what actions are taking me to agenda that is the visualization that I need to do and that absorbance of that Islam is penetrating with each and every one of these things into my heart
and 2.6 fate, I accept other wherever other analysts fade, whatever was written for me, I accept that. Now. What did my main point after saying all of that is what most people will become after that they'll become Muslim, Muslim, right. So the outcome is there. Some will be coming so basically is penetrating inside the heart, but the different degrees of penetration.
hacking activity has given a wonderful, he's given a wonderful example. Right? You know, hockey motive is a wonderful example. He said that, you know, when you're going to visit someone's house, imagine someone living in a really big detached house. So they've got a they've got a massive they've got gates all around the house, the compound, they've got a compound you come into and then they've got a you know, the veranda, and then they've got the main house. And they've got you know, several or Bitcoin, several rooms inside. So remember, hakima typically says that if you want to understand this penetration of Eman into your heart, if you want to understand Islam come right into
your heart. He says, you could go to someone's house and claim that you've gone to someone's house by just standing at the gates.
This massive house, you've gone to the gates, you said, you can say I've visited like Buckingham Palace A lot of people say I've gone to Buckingham Palace, where they've gone they've just gone to the gates of Buckingham Palace. And they can say I've gone and visited Buckingham Palace, they have visited Brooklyn palace, they've gone to the gate. But there's others who can probably say that, I've gone to Buckingham Palace, and I've gone through the gates. I've gone inside the massive compound. In other words, the grass is you know, in front of the palace, I've gone right to today, I've seen soldiers and that's a different entrance to the building the different, you know depth to
the building, that another person can actually say, by walking into the house or the palace another person will say I've actually visited by going inside. Now see that's different. And the final person who says that I've gone right to the core of it can say that I've actually had a whole tour of the whole palace. I've toured the whole palace, I've gone to the Queen's Chamber. Now a person has got a real claim of going visiting Buckingham Palace, as opposed to the one who just entered the the palace and as opposed to one who came to the courtyard. And as opposed to the one who just came to the gate mahaki meticulously says that if you want to really get to the peak of Islam, you've got
to go into the center of the house. Take it into the center of the of the heart. And then what is what did you bring us after that? The third question was the third question again. What is
what is your son your son was was was said and Tabitha lock and Nakamura who fell into
that you start to serve a law as though you are always as though you're always watching him or seeing him. And if you can't, then you know that Allah is watching you.
What does that mean? That means this is the real thing of saying that to become a real Muslim, to be a real Muslim as well, is that all the time? I know that allies watching me that's a real Muslim, that the stage of a mortal sin submersing most of us will be a Muslim, some of us will be movement, and very few of us can become a Muslim, which is a person who's got a sense and our goal should be that we should all try and become mazzini merci mean those who are always conscious of Allah azza wa jal Now, coming back to the main subject about you know, the Muslim Student, if you're a liberal, it doesn't matter what you studying here. This whole thing that I've said to you, this is a reality.
But I can't live my life in this university accept that allows though that has to become my focus.
That's That's me as a Muslim, I can't live that. And if I'm living a life that is not that you might say to me Well, why
Why don't need to do that. But if you really thought about your Acura, if you really thought about a lot, you really knew a lot like I said earlier. One is what it is knowing when is to believe if you really believed in Allah, that kind of knowledge if you had that kind of knowing of Allah, that you believe in Allah, you my brother, my sister, you wouldn't you wouldn't be the same. You would not be the same. And what I'm asking you to do, I'm asking you to become a true truth libertarian. What does that mean? I'm asking you brothers and sisters, to understand that when you're in your lecture theatres, right, allies watching you, I'm asking you, brothers and sisters, when you're in your
classroom, and you're sitting in a nice, nice, you know, you've got these nice square table, whatever. And there's discussions going on as a beautiful sister in front of you. Yeah, Ally's watching the beautiful barber in front of you. Ally's watching Yeah. When you just gone and you just take want to take her mobile phone, whatever and number you chasing allies watch. A friend that loves watching. When you're in your mouth, you're on the internet, and you can run what you want allies watching you. When you can plug something in your ear, you can listen to whatever you want her on holiday, no distinction unlike watching when you go somewhere and you're going to your
intermingle with other people are the non Muslims maybe, and the drinking something which is not halal. And you read them in the company a lot watching a live watching me alive with me. Now, when you're with your coursework, when you with your studies here, every moment of it can become a blessing for you, every moment of it can be a blessing for you. And I want to I want to make you realize that you can transform all of this, how are you going to transform all of this is that you're going to make an intention that each and every step of your studies is going to be for Allah sake. So if you're going to become biomedic, right, you're doing this for a slab? You're going to
support Islam with this, you can support the Muslims with this, whatever you can do. We need brothers and sisters, we need a lot of good Muslims who are going to be a lot of good. Yeah, good doctors, good engineers, whatever, we need that money.
What are you going to do with it? You're going to save the movie? What are you going to do with you're going to be good to yourself? What are you going to your livelihood, the condition of the property? What are you going to do after that good money? You're going to spend your time with a pad of Allah, Allah azza wa jal, you got the dunya you got the archaea, you got the best of this world, you got the best of Mexico. Otherwise, I will take this road and I will lose the next book. Allah azza wa jal has talked about those people who can Latina dunia will Ashura, there are certain people who are bargain the bargain is they've given away the act of taking the dunya Allah Allah Allah,
will need to get responded to the next slide. No punishment will be will be lighting for the next slide. There are those who will go for the Acura now brothers and sisters I'm saying to you is that go for the COVID. So what does that mean? That means time will come
when you will get married, and the father of Allah will come that you will find the right system for marriage. Right now. You need to control your gaze, that brother will come control your gaze, time will come when you will be standing and I will be standing from Allah azza wa jal, and we have to give account of what not about how many exams? I did.
Please remember this on the Day of Judgment, there's no such question. As you know, how many exams Did you pass?
How many grades did you get? On the day of judgment? The questions are, how many salons Have you performed?
That's my question. On the day of judgment, I've got to prepare for that. As well as preparing for this. There are two worlds that I've got in front of me. Allah said finances everywhere you going, and these two worlds that I've got in front of me, I am living the two worlds, my body and my soul. One My body is living this the material world here, and my soul inside me living the ACA and I've got to never forget that. And the more I observed my observed myself in this world, I will forget that I will become distant from the next world. The more I go towards the next one, I will become distant from this world. And I've got to balance the two. I'm not asking you to completely run away
and leave everything. I'm not saying that. And I'm not also saying to you to stay in this university and stay in the campus and do what you want. I'm not saying that brothers and sisters to become a true Muslim Student, I will know my identity. My identity is that I'm a Muslim. And I mean, and I want to become a Muslim. I want to become person who's close to a law student, and I'm here to serve a law. What does that mean? That I will do my best to become the best in this world so that I can please Allah azza wa jal, and that is my that is my ultimate goal. Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to open up with some q&a right now and there will be five things that I will I will say
throughout the q&a. I'm going to ask you brothers and sisters, whoever has been question you can assist us can say it as well as fine. And if you're going to q&a, please raise your hands and start start throwing questions. shala
Do you do to the campus?
How should we have interactions with them?
Every non Muslim that is, is here in the campus where every non Muslim that is here around us in less time or any, any other university that you're going to, they deserve. They deserve to be given the truth of Islam. And the best of what I've got, they deserve to get done. So that's one side of it. But at the same time, I've got to save myself from losing my faith, by being in a company by using my ways, and becoming subdued by their ways, I'm going to, I'm going to save myself from that. So what you do is Don't, don't live a life in this university where you've never given power.
Now all you brothers and sisters, the best thing the least hour you can give is by your example.
Be kind, smile at them. You know, smile, gentle smile, not like
just a gentle smile, make them feel warm. Make them know that you're not some some brothers that you can practice I'm telling you, you know, just the appearance, this appearance will just kill you off.
You know, the guy that were the way the guys keeping his beard is like, you know, the guy wants to eat you up. Now can't grow your comb your beard, you know, make yourself look nice. Make yourself the meat. And some problem you see them? Yeah, they've got the
they've got this face that shows you that. They don't want you to interrupt it.
not talking about you know, brothers or sisters of a rose. You know, I'm not saying that. But you know, you've got to put your colleagues in the in the campus, you've got them in the university, what needs to happen is that we need to interact with them in a way that shows us the truth of Islam, and shows them the genuine side of Islam. And by doing so, we are giving an appealing we are given $1 now that's one slightest form of Dawa is a slightest form of Dawa, the bigger than that the greater thing than that is that you actually start learning Islam to a degree where you can actually call them to Islam.
And look, guys and sisters, please don't forget, if you don't know how to give Dawa. How to call them to, to the dean, I'm going to ask you
these four questions, the maluka Allah trophy straight down, don't worry, too straight, did not write down from this token shala.
What I want to say to you is
those people that you've got
to give them down, you don't have to give them a you've got Look, look at one another. You've got this many bubbles, you got this many brothers to look after.
You can get them down, you can remind them about the sisters, you can remind one another for the deed.
And some brothers, they get too excited, you know, like they want to give dollar but the guy wants to get down to a sister.
Why do you want to go down at a sister needs a demon.
She's a deep history practicing.
Post sister, you know, she looks nice, but she would be looking at better with a Java head. So he goes to her to give it our
other brothers to get down to where you go and give it to her sister.
She's not an assistant needs it.
And he convinces himself. So it goes up to her sister. You know, it'd be nice if you were to come over to the lecture theatre for his stomach to be nice and sustained nicely. So he's making rapport with them.
And after a while, yeah,
he's gone to give her down that he's taken down of her.
Next Monday, you know, right, he was going to talk her to lecture theatre, they're going out for coffee, they're going out for your mouse. Now brother you want to get down you've got plenty of brothers to give our two sisters you know plenty of systems to give out. So remember that by default, we've all got each other to remind each other of the day you don't have to become an expert, that you got to go and bring people to the deal. You don't have to become that expert. Only few people maybe get get up to that but a lot of you can do it how you got to know your own Islam.
You will know your own style and how to talk to them how to bring them to the faith. And if you do that my brother and if you do that, my sister, you have earned yourself a ticket two gentlemen. If you get one of them in Islam, you earn your way your pathway to Jenna and him his whole generations to come. Every time they will act upon his time. You get an equivalent amount of reward for bringing them into Islam. Don't forget it's not just do with him and nonpracticing brother or not
Tracking System, if you bring them into the team, every time they practice the dean, you will get the equivalent amount of reward that they practice every time they do that. So if you see a brother that is not praying, try and bring them towards praying their sister that needs to come closer do bring it closer. Okay, so that's, that's Tao. So going back to the original question, which is how do we deal with them, we want to give them general we want them to go with us to janma. So we want them to be something that is in our hearts that we want that to pass on from us to them, by the least if you can't do that, because most of you leave this university, you've never had anyone
converting to stand, by the least they should see the goodness of a stamp, the goodness of Islam.
And I normally say this, and it's really scary. Imagine I do a deed, because of which one of them on the Day of Judgment says to Allah, that I,
I got, you know, I didn't want to believe in his time because I saw that Muslim. And they pointed me, I saw that Muslim do this thing. And I thought is that Islam, imagine I become very for them. And I imagine the opposite as well imagine I become the cause of him further investigating Islam, if you leave a good impression on them, inshallah, not one day or another, they will at least defend the Muslims behind, you know, behind your back, it's happened to me, as I'm doing I, I had this,
this doctor once she was a Jewish doctor,
she's my doctor for a period of time. So whenever I used to go, and I'm going to see her, while I still end up talking about Judaism in Islam, let's just talk about it. No, by the least even if even she doesn't convert to Islam, but at least you will get to know my religion, right? To get to know who I am. So I remember very clearly and vividly that, you know, this was this was prior to 911. And, you know, we every time I see, you know, you smile, and so on, I know, she's, she's a non Muslim, and she's a woman. Right, but I'm not gonna look at her for any reason that I'm there. She's going to examine me. And she was the specialist, I have to examine me for whatever condition at that
time, so I had to be there. So times, you know, I would have, you know, my mother in law go with me and times other as we go, but I wasn't there for the Nia was dead, but I would leave a good impression with stamina. So I talked to her in a nice way to give her some very subtle way. I remember when 911 happened. And the next appointment, I had to go and see her. After 911 I was actually quite, you know, feeling, feeling sort of, you know, heavy hearted. I was thinking, how's it going to be? I'm going to go and see this woman right now she's probably going to go sorts of things. So I got examined, and then, you know, I started on Saturday, you know, this thing about 911
and so on. I said, you know, Islam doesn't really teach about this kind of, and she said, she really surprised me. She said,
she said, you know, you don't need to tell me this.
Thinking which angles in Chicago. She goes in my crowds, my own crowds, with my own Jewish friends. I've been preaching to them, that it can't be the Muslims.
And I said, and I was like, Why? She said because of you
the view, because the conversation we've had I said it can't be the most these are not Muslims. I've got a Muslim patient. And a Muslim patient is not like that. And the Muslims can't be like that. That's what channels 100 the least that happens from that is that they live with a good impression. If you have students living in your accommodation. The biggest dollar you can give to them is how you keep yourself clean.
If you're sharing your accommodation with a non Muslim, and they don't know how to use the toilet, teach them how to use the toilet. Seriously. If the guidance comes out text is a hosepipe
toilet, and he washes the toilet with his hose pipe.
And you got to go back in there. You gotta take water and wash it out before you have to use it. If I had a roommate like that, I don't teach mister make
you sit down.
You're not gonna sit down here. me happy
and teach him.
Tell him I'm humbler when I was young. I was circumcised hamdulillah. And because of that, every time I go to the toilet yo comes out in one go.
Brothers, I'm telling you since you're not Muslim, someone that you know that they have a circumstance that that means circumcised. It takes you know, it takes a few girls to get it all out.
Then you tell them you know tell him a hygiene. Tell him about cleanliness. Tell him that look is usually not good for you, man. It's not good for your body. Then leave it all over your body. You don't want to wash
If you don't want to use that calendar use keep yourself clean, man. Don't drop all over the floor. I would ask you to pray now.
You're telling me the guy is gonna get upset? Why should he get upset? Why should he upset you talking about cleanliness is one good things tell him in a nice way to say don't say,
nice fella. We keep clean. I like to see clean, let's keep the room clean if you're a person who's hoovering up who's keeping things clean, who's tidying up afterwards and so on? And he sees that if you're a person doing that hunger you know what he will have the love of some somebody when they're not alone and some if you ever start to cook Rasulullah Salama said he always said, he said, whenever you cook something he said, Put some extra water in it and make it make the stew if you couldn't do it, if you could do something that has some references extended because you can always give extra to your neighbors.
Let him eat from what you eat.
Let him see who you are. When you when you read your answer. Let him see the good life of Muslim so that's a big that's a massive data that you can give to them. And you know Kappa b Kappa Kappa Gamma anyway, what's the next question?
Any sisters with a question? Yes system.
practical advice from moving to Muslim to move into Marcin and so on practical advice is that you just got to carry on practicing. You just got to kind of practice it. So for example, most Muslims will pray the salon, you know, the one practicing them, they'll pray the Salah, but they will never think about praying the Salah with devotion to never make a conscious effort to pray with devotion. So if you system to all the brothers, I'm saying all the sisters i'm saying is, you know, it takes effort to pray your Salah with devotion, it takes effort. Most people inside the Salah they're in cruise control
is that you know glower
na, na, na, na na na na casa knockos, multiple cruise control. It's like, they have mind leaving in the drifting doesn't matter where it goes. Let me think about what about what
it takes effort to get out of that, you know, you know, modern psychology teaches is that when you get when you get used to any action, and you do over and over again, you actually get into that cruise control mood mode, right? So what happens is, you don't want people when you first learn how to drive a car, you're actually aware of everything you're aware of the steering wheel or the the gearbox or where the pedals You know, there's so much going on, there's a mirror signal.
Yeah, so you're aware of everything. Now when you first start learning how to drive a someone's talking to you while you're driving, a guide is mandatory, just keep zipped up, man, I'm trying to concentrate here, you know, because your brain hasn't gone into that mode of you know, you can't just you can't just do naturally but after a while, after a year, a few months, you know, you get into that thing of you know you can it's all natural pedals are moving hands moving, steering, doing done mirrors and looking over talking at the same time you can be done right? But that is very good a lot a lot give me a wonderful body that you can do these things you know, in naturally without
even thinking because your brain can always think about every single thing however there's a catch to it. The catch is in Salah in Salah once you get used to sort of fatty and you sutra and you Riku and Institute if you don't stop yourself your body would automatically go into cruise control. That means you just do your Roku you do used to do you do all of it and you don't know where you are the second the second or third third or third second I thought of my exam and third I taught my coursework so it's my third
so you if you don't actually put you know stop and make yourself be conscious of it you won't do enough it takes effort brothers and sisters takes effort so what are the sisters asking how do you move move to Muslim to move in is that you actually start to change this type of Salah what do you do you get into Salah right and you start practicing how many percent Can I get of thinking that allies watching me throughout this entire prep? I want to know that alive was from allies Western Allies when Allahu Akbar lies What do you mean? That's the only thing should be on my mind subhanak alone will be damned if you don't I want you guys to practices
it takes effort guys to this one place. No sister does for me that see how fight and don't make your real knee up to the cuts don't make it Rumia to the gods just just say Allah without Nia is just to practice okay? As a super hammock, aloha Mohammed Cotabato
idea and suddenly
my mind is somewhere else right? I got as far as what I got as far as molecule media. Never start again.
Aloha. I'm gonna get as far as I can until you've actually done the full to recap
and then try and make an effort that every time is going to become an audio material cast when I do my forecast, I've got to try and keep that consciousness that awareness of Allah till the end of my prayer, it takes effort it takes effort for a fasting person to eat less
and ask people that they fast right you're gonna move from Muslim to movement. You're gonna move from from Muslim to movement, then you just don't do what almost doing fasting time comes fast and time comes as the thirsty full day but they'll drink like a camel at the time of mothering. What's the point of that? They're hungry all day and in like a bull or an ox? Yeah, at the time of Easter. Seriously
it's like the most unhealthy foods as well. Oh my god no this Ramadan I went to
this Ramadan I
want to start I went and did it at the masjid and I just didn't go back to the master to do that as it did at home without home me and my wife we're looking at healthy you know healthy foods something that will be nice in the stomach easy on the stomach some that will not be oily ingredient and one day what must be done is like these greasy sir Moses and kebabs and you know that you think
and he's you know the chana and puri and the pakoras and I had to like blow it inside I was thinking what what you know if you get used to the nice health food you don't do that now the thing is if the brother or the sister if they're actually killing themselves through the getting as much as they want Polly done before so who comes before father comes up soon is finished what kind of fasting is that if you want to move to proper Ramadan prophesy that you feel your Ramadan withdrawals with Victor with good tra here and don't be selective not in yesterday I've got I've got a relatively Nestor you know he does he's proud of you know his his short term ease you know you know you know
Lester apparently you've got you've got this like this must be like one hour 15 minutes down one hour and 15 minutes here Give me a man it's all over Marcia line where were you talking about? Are you gonna make you you want to get close to a line you want you know, you wanna you want to be in a horse race for throwing
a horse race for tarawih and
they come to Bali
and then you just hear the odd mud somewhere
what's gonna what's gonna be the whole month what's gonna be I normally just Just tell him I listen man you get close to Allah. Yuna make Ramadan, a proper Ramadan. Then get into you know I will say that Abdullah bin Massoud regelung said, he said when you read the Quran, he said a wonderful thing says My beloved Massoud Allah. He said when you read the Quran he said fill the heart with
fill it fill it with his pleasure. Enjoy it and he said Let not let not the end of the sewer become your goal that's on your eye. That not be the end. You know, you report an injury brother Yeah.
Then he can kita buena eboshi
taki and let me know me when yoky una
una sala de la
and if you know the meaning of that on top of that he's just so beautiful
That's what he said he says fill your heart with fill it with it asked me moving from Muslim to move in because you're making your Ramadan meaningful.
Same as had you know Hajj, the Congo coming back here we'll come back to see you know, a lot of them you know I've been to a few Hajj and a normal heart as well. They all you know before the day of a heart attack goes in sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub sub Muslims do love each other doesn't matter you blog doesn't matter your wife
and we'll get on with each other. For a few good moments, I'm telling you the Muslims are like this right? But there are some really good brothers out there. Whether it's hard or the outside has they really don't have any racism inside. Right? They don't have any differences. But I've seen so many of them. They're just waiting for the other day to finish and you start as soon as the sun's gone down on the day of alpha you start hitting them again.
Pay for this in understand argue argue and it gets it gets worse. It gets worse by the time the holidays are over. My god you know don't back to normal again. You know
Hold on where's where's the Brotherhood? Now you see now and again hunger good, but the real brotherhood where there is no difference between Egyptian and Assyrian and and you know there's no difference between the Pakistani Bengali or Indian you know they'll go back to normal again they'll go back to normal again now that racism is still deep inside we just had you start Yeah, your wedding you brothers called the Muslim Muslim Muslim 5 million Mashallah
you know can get better karma five star hotel was that you get you know,
if you want a real hot, real hot is that you are going to go through a lost house, because you are going to pretend to become a dead person.
You're dead for those two days. And when you come back, you're going to bring the Baraka, you're going to bring the, you're going to bring the way of Ibrahim in your life, when you come back, you're going to bring the way the seat of moms in your life before you come back, you're going to bring the student and your life when you come back. That's what the real is in man is that movement, Muslim to movement. So in all of these things, you can move, right, you know, even better, you know, a person wants to do better. And you can just sit there and you can just just just do a bout of God without actually making the effort to to be meaningful to God. But if you want to be really true to
God, just put put your heart in it. Put your heart in it. I'll give you an example yet, if you do lucky, you know duty what is the difference between a taxi driver who drives an f1 formula racer.
The book in the car
the book working right, but the taxi driver, he gets in there. And he's like going from this end of Leicester to the end of Leicester to pound place. Yeah. And all day just thinking man when I was gonna finish, but the f1 formula racer who's racing on a pit he can be a thriller. He's enjoying every part of that driving because he's different he's doing for different reason. He wants to he wants to come out with with with the with the trophy and so on. Right? Is it different Salah if you can do salah and it's just gonna be normal, normal salonu I can do with some passion I can do because this is Salah is going to become my means of the afra this is going to become my friend in
the grave. I'm making my friend of the great, I can put my heart into that brother, sister, let's be honest with ourselves, you're going to spend four minutes to do four cuts.
Just add one more minute or two more minutes to it just one or two more minutes. And do a bit more slowly and try and take yourself out as cruise control. And you know what you've made a very, very big meaningful Salah, you've made your companion of the astronaut, you've got your light for the Day of Judgment, you've now got your email, you've got now got your penetration of stamp going into your heart. So you know to the system that you're not anything like sisters who are wearing hijabs. Now we knew the reason why you're wearing the hijab, and wearing it because I want to be modest. Now if you want to be modest, then you'd be modest. If you're wearing the hijab to be modest, that is to be
modest, to show the brothers that I will not be touched, except by my husband in that way until I get my that's the reason why you are in a job. You trying to say that I'm away from that dirty life.
That life where a woman puts herself down to others. I'm away from that I'm a woman of dignity. I'm a woman of pride. I've got my slam, and I'm proud of it. And I've I've put myself out here because I'm going to show that I have I have a person who's in a castle who should be honored. March 24, Allah said, a woman who has placed herself in a high tower to be honored and respected until her time comes to be with her husband. That's who I am. So don't don't give me the job means I don't want any loose talk.
The job means don't look at me in a dirty way. That's what the job means. So if I'm doing that, and I'm also putting all that make Rola said I'm giving two messages. One is that you know Brother, you know we my job Don't look at me not face please look at me.
I am beautiful. I am wanted please, please. I exist.
I say we brothers if you're gonna if you're gonna do a thing for exam, you're gonna wear you're gonna wear the job but don't don't wear the job bar and gone stand in a queue of lottery.
brothers who do that
the guy has got a white beard holder coming down here.
white beard. He goes five times in the mosque.
He's got a jumper about why don't you say Juba and he's standing on a Saturday night in the lottery line.
if you're not saying you're gonna be a man we do
just one pound you're gonna start losing you're asking other people do not don't don't do that PB apprentice in other brothers who want to show that there is such a good brother inside the mustard but when they go home, they're not the same.
They're not the thing and I don't really care.
Do you want to show who you are be the same wherever you are because you're doing for Allah sake. Anyway, naturally if you see a sister universe and you want to get married to her How should you approach the situation?
What do I say to you after this talk?
You should marry her sister. You know, what should I say to her golf to her proposed to her kneel down, put a ring.
Joking, sorry, don't take that as a pathway.
First thing is, you know, you, you you like the sister, you want to get married to everyone in the university, you gotta have some ad that you're going to have some etiquettes where you just can't go up to the sister and talk to her willy nilly wherever, whenever you want. Right? You should find now amongst you there will be morons amongst you, there will be a brother, who will have his rule system, the other side, or a sister who will have her real brother on this side. And I'm sure all universities have this, or Chimamanda have an own brother but someone who's a real uncle, for someone who's a nephew or a niece or some relationship, that is a matter of religion, you probably
got that. So get through that you should send, you should probably get the talk while you're going. Or you you can you can at least find some initial contact about the data but don't go direct don't start taking a number, taking his number starting text because most cases that was wasn't said. In fact, in all cases, what will happen is that you will be two and the third amongst you will be distributed.
No man ever gets together with a woman in secrecy he has said except the third amongst them, the Showtime where they secrecy in physical terms, secrecy, you know, in a non physical term like on internet secrecy through email or WhatsApp or something else secrecy where you and her are only sending these messages, sooner or later, you're going to be losing your your true faith. So that's one way If not, what are you going to be genuine brothers? If you see if you see the system, and you will be genuine, you know that sister, she's got the right to say that she doesn't want to marry you. And she should not be harassed. You should not Stoker we should not just start to start using
your other tactics to try and get
become a little dull boy, what are you doing a really big order be with a dealer start to start to make her feel that you know you are Mr. Macho Man
start to make you feel that you so great, you know, you got muscles, and you got Yeah, you got language man, you know, you can talk and you can do that. It's a sister, you know, if you if you asked, you know, is the sister interested in me at all? And the answer comes? No, yeah, don't do one of two things. One is to actually go and try and find a compressor. And the other way is to try and you know, feel that you want to commit suicide. You know, there are some guys whose whole life is finished because she said no, some girl will sit there to take a knife and she's not cutting yourself.
I know that there's some girls who you know, they wanted to get married to some guy or they liked him. And he rejected her. So she's not going to inflict harm on herself. You're responsible, none of that responsible for you know,
you're responsible in front of Allah because that's your body that Allah has given us anyway. If you find that the person has got no interest in keeping that Halas, don't carry on looking at it, don't carry on, you know, having to get in the contact. Now. If there is some form of maybe yes, right? Then go through the parents please go through her real brother. Go through a real brother go through a loop and know that woman is a woman of respect and is respected.
Do not break her honor before her marriage.
troubles I know in universities whose only you know and I don't want to say this to sisters. Right? You want to get married to this his brother here who's who's after you.
Fight. You want to find out if he truly loves you. Right? Come in front of him. Without you know without you trying to make yourself look good. As he is interested in you. This is a guy it's a guy that's interested in your face. It is just interesting to face
them to highlight as in when you come like you know just just where you his job, right? We're adult the job. Right? We're don't dress right. You know, just come out, you know, just by washing your face or finished right? You're not going to impress the guy and see if you really liked you.
Because it is up to you. I'm not saying that, you know turn up really ugly. What I'm saying is that don't try to impress him and see what he does.
Because you know a lot of guys, all they want is they want fun.
And some girls want as well, all they want is the one fun.
And the thing is marriage is not about fun. Marriage is not about, you know, outside of is a small part of my friend. Yeah, marriage in Islam is a serious matter. So what I'm going to say to you is that something, you go through the real matter, you try and make some content now, if after that you find is going ahead and go through the families fine. Let the families to get your parents involved, get their present, go through that. If there's a reason I know a lot of us sitting in this university thinking Nah, man, my dad's never gonna accept this or whatever, you got to be real with your, if you know that you can never marry the sister Be realistic. Just let just don't go off. If
you know brothers never gonna get married to you because you know, you're Pakistani, his Bengali is never going to happen. Right? So forget it, leave it. Don't try and make your life miserable by you know, making relationship for three years, or abandoned after that just to find out the present never gonna accept it. If you're serious about it, what you do is go and see me man, you got such a problem like that. And I always get asked this question, whenever I'm at university, if you're seriously you know, really want to get married to that sister, or for the sisters that rather than go and see the man and are gone contact someone who's senior in the in the locality. Because you
know, your parents are not going to accept it against the senior person in the community, or your relatives and go and say this is what's happening in my life. The end of the day, if you've been struck with love in your heart, right? Then you've got to deal with the either you completely eradicate that love because it's sinful, or you get married to that person. You go one way or the other, don't stay stuck in the middle. which is you know, I'm in love with a camera. I want to marry her but I don't think I'm can marry the still she's so lovely
inshallah inshallah inshallah one day, one day, I'm still trying and yours are going by with the sinful nature, yes, going back with you dreaming.
If only if only I could be with a
cookie practice right now.
I just carry on for a little while, inshallah, how to do three minutes in the classroom presentation. Look, you can't tell me that you're going to be in a university. And you know, it's of university and among Muslims here, you're going to get all this segregation done in the classroom and all and you know, you're,
you know, divided in the class, you're not going to get that right. You know, when you came and you didn't know, when you came to university, that you're going to be in a classroom with other agendas in the classroom, then you know, you live in cuckoo world, you're gonna get the now you've got to control yourself is true. There's got to be some some lights on you. Now it's on you. It's right on you. And what do you do, you know, your gaze.
But if you're going to the classroom, don't see at the back where all the sisters heads out the front, or you can be sat down the back and looking at the system from the back. If your brother goes to the front, your sister see at the back, I have that much respect Alicia do that. Second thing is, you probably, you know, you're probably sitting there. And it's probably a beautiful person that that's there. And it's always bugging you. And you probably always want to look that way. Right? Would you do this with us, a lot of them said, if you're young, you can get married, he said get married.
And if you can't get married, he said fast, fast, one day, don't pass the other day fast one day, don't pass the other day, and kill yourself in hunger. Because when a person is hungry, it kills us the desire, especially for the men, especially for the men. So go through that. Now, if that's not gonna work, or you are still, you know, you can't keep your eyes off that person, whatever you tempted to go and talk to her, rather than going to state as liquor, do a lot of liquor. And since before
and if you're not going to do that. And you still want to be in a state where you're still looking at her talking to her being inclined towards her, then you should know the consequences of the next slide. And go and start studying about the consequences of serious things about the next slide because if you land in Haram, you're going to really find yourself in a in a one sisters monitor. Look, look at this, right? If a sister called you who you are inclined towards a sister, and you actually say no, I'm not going to go towards her. Because I fear Allah, you have just guaranteed your position under Allah after
you've guaranteed your position on the throne for the dead gentlemen. But if you go towards her and you commit Zina, then you will be in a pot of fire with her, you naked, she's naked both in the akhirah you're both going to be burning in that pot of fire with other people who have committed
act now you decide, do you want to be under option? The day of judgment was thrown? Because your honor, you said I feel a lot, I'm not going to go into this relationship, or are you going to end up in a pot of fire and you're going to burn from the moment you die to the moment you go to the Day of Judgment, and one of the punishment lies for you. And you're going to face that after that, just for one simple act Lyla, Allah.
And either going fast, if you can't, please get married, get married, right? It is not bad to get married. Now you will say to me, Well, how can I get married?
Consider locally, man, come talk to them.
I'm not gonna stand here. And I'm not gonna conduct 50 marches right now. Yeah. So consumer later on, okay, how to do with a non Muslim man who constantly talks to you in a non sexual way about matters regarding the course? Well, you know, can you not directed man? Or can you not give look?
Can you not give nice messages that you know, you don't want to be taught to it as a sister who's written alligators. The English culture is really good for that.
Now, the English culture is really good friend, you can be very polite, or very rude at the same time.
As you are the neighbors. Yeah. How are you? Good morning.
smile at you this morning. They smile at you. But it was a very.
And they've gone off
the English culture, you can you can give messages very subtly. So for example, the guy comes to you and says to you about the culture, and he's asking about the costume he gave, give an answer and show them that you need to get a thank you. I really have to get going. Now, we'd love to get your clothes back and just walk off. No one's gonna mind they'll get the message you smiled, you've given them an answer. You said you're in a bit of a rush, you smiled again, you know, thank you, thank them, you closed it, you walked off the body language is saying that I really don't want to be talking to you. But I'm not going to be rude to you when the next day. You don't have to do I need
to give you Cortana is easy.
In English culture, it's easy in some other cultures really difficult Alhamdulillah has given us that culture so you can do it, just use it whenever you have to use it. And then, you know, another way you can do it is to try and get you know, if you give that message a few times to them they'll get the message that the sister is not wanting to talk now. If you feel that okay, you know I need to always you know, I need to give this person the information now have you not got another brother inside the same lecture that can give the same information please just just tell just go through the ISOC president whoever go through throughout the system just try and get contact with that brother
other brother will go directly to the other brother in the classroom say please, bro, you know, this guy's talking to me. I don't want to really be talking all the way all the time. Could you please just just deal with the questions wherever he's got.
Do that if you really have to go that far do that. I'm sure there's not, you know, 50 sisters in one
lesson or just one non math
lesson? How do you react to most Muslims who are against props that allows them linking to the movie and what has been Smith's made recent? Okay? I'm gonna answer that very briefly. Okay, I've given a whole lecture on this. If you go to YouTube, and go to suffer Academy online, that's on YouTube, S. AR suffer Academy online. And it's called nothing in defense of our beloved Professor alarmism, I've given a two to two and a half hour lecture on that. And there's enough information on that so I'm just going to keep it short to that I'm sure you've got a lot of time to see these things. So you can go and see that it'll save me time here with other questions as well.
How or what do you tell brothers that have come to university and started drinking? Okay, now if you see a brother who's drinking please remember that
he you gotta you got to put his state of mind into into place first before you can put him you know, you can't just go to someone's
He can look at you and say you want some a low? You want some as well. Mr. McKeon Allah, you condemning condemning him to Hellfire ice and harangue you saying, You're a burn in hell. How are you supposed to feel?
How are you supposed to
drink Pepsi gone? Now do you think is going to do that has ever happened? What are you going to do is you've got to come to him with Hickman Hickman is that there was a person the last time
and the IRS came down that you're not supposed to drink. So there was this one Muslim who who came to the process, man, he said Mr. Lyon said can you please just give me the permission to drink
Assad Oh, fuming what this this person has come and is asked
The profit for, for for the permission to permission to drink. So the person was asking two questions. He said, Are you a person who always says the truth? said yes. He asked me another question. Are you a person who always praise Salah? He said yes. So the last one said,
he said, continue to tell the truth and continue to pray as well. He said to me, he didn't he didn't answer him on the question about wanting to drink is continued to tell the truth, or commit to need to continue to come and pray with us. Now Rasulullah sallallahu guided into two things that keep being honest, because the guy was honest, he wasn't gonna cheat and drink secret in his house, he came to the prophet and said, probably give me permission, I want to just say it's okay for me. I've got a bad habit. So here's an honest man versus woman recognize that second thing was that resource Larson wanted him to carry on having the good company. So this is the most important thing, the good
company, he knew that he would come pray with the Muslims. So he said, Okay, come and pray with us. And the guy came and he would bring his bottle to the masjid and you leave it outside the masjid Come inside, you pray. This early slump is not in latest time. Okay? So as soon as this was just after the IRS came down on him, so then he leaves a salon he will pick up his ball go home, so he's to do that. And then one day he came to the masjid was bawling. So you know, I'm feeling awkward. Why do I have to make a point and bring the ball to the mosque? What I'm just leaving what I'm leaving home so he's not leave the ball at home and is to come to the mercy without the ball. And
after a while, he thought to himself, you know, in the prayer and he's leaving the Muslims, he's got that environment. After a while he told himself You know, he start cutting down and drinking and in the end, he just lifted right now that is hikmah his wisdom if you see a brother who is drinking then you need to find a good company, bring them to the ice or bring them to the tools bring them to or give them some goodness Yeah, maybe they'll never listen to talk don't just give a person a book in their hand. Now a lot of people just want the rubber here's the book read about this gambling intoxicating drinking, how haram it is find out which part of how far you can go to please take a
examine his position where he's going to be sitting in alpha, you know, what do you think this is
gonna read? It might come up to them and talk to them nicely right? Talk about him and talk about the clover accuraterip agenda talk about the nice positive talk about
dude balance with Jana, but lightly
talk about a lot of what a pleasure to have why we Muslim talk about the purpose of life, talk about why we're here talk about the acid automatic grave, talk about we're gonna be there alone and start to make him think right why is a Muslim? And after a little while, you start thinking himself, you know, what am I doing? You know, what, if you got the good company, inshallah, slowly, slowly he will, he will leave it now. And again, you might make references to this being so wrong that might take you to Hellfire and so on in my bed now and again, but the majority of you should be good, good token, you know, positive information.
I had some people introduce, knowing self is knowing a lot one to one with Allah is this part of the medicine? See, the thing is,
in a philosophical way, in a deep spiritual way, knowing yourself is knowing Allah is true, in a way, now, this is a very deep sort of way of looking at things and not everyone is, is ready for this. Not everyone is ready for this. So for example, if you were to concentrate on yourself, and you think you're not saying that your God now, you're not saying that, but you just want to understand God. So if you actually look at appreciation, if you look at look, I get really appreciated when someone does something nice for me, you can understand our last name Shaku through that Allah appreciates what we do for him. If you want to understand, you know, the fact that Allah
azza wa jal, he is he is someone who has so much mercy you can start thinking about your own mercy and about justice you can look at justice in your own self and that the fact that every human being wants justice end of the day, we all want justice, and they want the truth right. You can you can look at that and you can understand a loving adult you can understand a lot being mahakam and so on, but it's not for everyone. It's not for everyone.
This is a bit off topic but if you owe someone money for something haram Will you be held accountable in Islam? If you do not fulfill as this debt is for something haram look, you got to tell me what it is now look if I for example, I don't know if I if I bought a dodgy phone or someone right? So the guy is me. You know he's sending me an iPhone five for 100 pounds. Yeah, a you know, an iPhone five can be 100 pounds. We say Brava Mashallah, where did you get it? You know, shall a brand new iPhone five 400 pounds. He should know that
Got your I don't take in I do take in already and now you make an argument saying well if I give you the money it's hard money isn't it? What kind of argument is that? You've taken the phone will give the phone back if the goods back but you can't
Ah, okay. Drugs
if somebody look if you've if you've taken if you take and like let's say for example you weren't practicing and you took drugs of somebody and use your the money now for those drugs, but you've had those drugs you finished them you sold them off you whatever you did, now you become practicing. Another guy wants the money. Tonight you're saying it's gonna be her on money. Now my brother Don't try and become practicing now. I'm trying to cut the debt off. You don't do that? Because the thing is, you owe him the money those days you in her arm? You know mood her on life. You took the heroin morphine and yes, the money is gonna go back in but it's it's a transaction and the day and you got
to fulfill that you will give him the money back. Even though he was for the drugs, you've got to give him the money back right now. It's it's wrong of you to have done that. But you do talk about what you got to get the money back and I'll be honest with you, it has to do with drugs. Even if it's 10 pounds, the guy will come looking for you.
Five pounds, the guy will come looking for you. The day is cracked.
He's gonna come looking for you. And he'll come with a knife as you try and look to see if he can you know crack you with a knife.
When I pray or try to practice the deen, it becomes harder. How do I devote myself? Look, if it's
whoever wrote this, if it's to do with Salah
or anything else in the deen that you're trying to practice and it becomes difficult try and please do some Vicar try and remember a lot of those I try and spend some
some time alone with Allah, on the masala to yourself, just thinking about Allah and no one else right and spend the more you will do this, the more it will become easy for you to get close to Allah, the spirit, the soul of every ibadah we've got is the vicar of allies remembrance of Allah. When Allah said akima, Salah established prayers, he said lyrically, for my remembrance, if you've got the remembrance of God in there, that is so easy for you devoted, if you fast if you do anything else, and you go the remembrance of God with that, it's very easy to do it. When the remembrance of God is gone, it becomes difficult for you to do that. So try and you know, inject that into your
mind and try and keep that constant
right is student finance haraam interest inflation? Or halaal? Well, if you've already taken it out, why are you asking me right now?
Like some guy you know, he saw some some I don't know some really nice kebab. He eats in
Alaska a salad later on. But you know, it's really nice. Look, you have if you want to, if you really think about how Rama halaal please do it before you take it out.
You seriously want to stay with the way the question is posed is like, you know, man, please make the hell out for me. Just say so please bail me out now. Now, the thing is, I'm not going to stand here, I'm not going to change the photographer for you, as I think interest free loans that they used to give up before, everyone knew that the interest free loan that they give you is hella now that they've got another they've got
you know, they've got they've got certain finances where there there is interest. And I think I think the stock that interests you know, right, am I right? Am I wrong?
Can you still get student interest free loan?
You can't, right? So now that they've got the other word of interest on it,
I would say to you that this is a very difficult, it's a very difficult thing. And you have to be honest with your deen with your religion.
And if you got even people or others or anyone else, you can start borrowing of family members, you know, whoever they are, you should look at those options. If you even have to go through, you know, to survive this, I don't know to go through some other means that I had to please look into those. But if you've ended up having to take one, I'm not above it. And I can't give you a fatwa. And I'm stuck here so I'm not going to give you an answer on that one. I'm going to say to you that there are plenty of doctors in Leicester go and see them go and visit them and talk to them about the one that you've done. You know the transaction you've done whatever situation that is, but I'm just
giving you the general thing guess
what by few
you forced by mom and dad at age of work
if you're 18
And your mum and dad are forcing you to do something, then, you know, you want to question themselves, some of the questions themselves, you know, if you're supposed to do with taking this loan out, they're gonna force you to get married to some girl, you don't want to get invited, right? And then they're gonna make you have your wedding in a way that you don't want to have that wedding. That way they can do all sorts of things. And there's gonna be point when you got to stand up the law a little mock Look, the man says, you do not obey the creation, when it when it creates a being disobeyed, that's a clear rule is a difficult one, because it's only coming, I think the last few
years that you can actually get interest free loan.
And myself, I'm perplexed
because there's hundreds and 1000s of students across the country that, you know, probably going through a lot of difficult times, you know, they need to study and they can't find the finances and so on. But I'm not a Mufti. And so, being honest with this question, I'm going to say to you that you can see all of these books, these are the ones we can give access to. I'm just going to give you general Islamic answers.
Do you have any tips for anyone who is trying to give up listening to music, do a lot of liquor and get into liquor and getting to with your heart and get so much love of that record that music becomes secondary, and it will happen, it will happen. If you have to do constantly. You have to do with passion, you have to do with love. You have to put your heart into Subhan Allah you won't be a honey suba la, the server

Here are the challenges sing for Allah. Praise a ma D with a la you don't need this music. If you read the tilava if you haven't got a beautiful voice, listen to your voice. Put foot down it Susie, down, put, put some you know beautiful, I don't want to go down the whole machine thing to try and get yourself off this you know you don't have to go through that. Just go to tilava go through the QA do your own Vicar and put your heart into it. So
are we in love with passion with joy, with pride with closeness with the yearning of Allah with the hope of Allah do let your heart get into it. You don't need music. Music is a fallacy. It tries to get you away from your thoughts that are bothering you. But it doesn't.
It doesn't. Most people will listen to music there was something in their head thereafter. Either the dreaming of a girl that dancing with while music is going on. Right? Or that they're just getting themselves out of the worries that are surrounding them. But it's only a temporary solution. Temporary will never get you out of it. Soon as the music stops. You space your evils that are around you. If you do the vicar of Allah, and you get close to Allah allow for two problems up and cutting spending time with him allow make your heart's content you want contentment in your heart to the vicar of Allah. Allah said clean Allah. He thought manucho surah only through the decree of
Allah, can you make your heart be content? There's no other way.
Okay, I wish to marry Good luck. Okay.
I fear I will see if I don't work. Okay, my parents are not happy with my decision. As I am a student. I have also found a girl but they aren't happy with her nationality. They will turn a blind eye if I seen but don't wish to mommy to marry any advice for me Heil Hitler. Okay.
Right. So the guy is given a nice longer
need to get married and your parents are not going like this. There's hundreds of questions that you got to ask the whoever you are, whichever one of you if you want to.
So there's loads of questions to ask if you if you've got a sister you want to marry and his nationality and so on. You've got to be you've got to, you know, can you provide accommodation? Can you provide a space? Can you provide a shelter? Can you actually provide a food? Can you provide her clothing? Have you got the mean to do that? Are you seriously going to keep her under your shelter for a long period? Or is it just you know, just for the shower? Just the pleasure of it. So if all these things are positive, how serious is she with you? The moment her parents start saying that no way is she going to back down? She's going to leave us you're going to start playing you know,
emotional. Yes, you're going to get done in with emotional magic, emotional blackmail or black magic even sometimes that happens. There's one case where those of you
University boy and university girl, and I was dealing with the case and the sister wants to get married. So in the end they did a niqab, but then the one of the parents did Blackmagic
mess the girl up seriously messed her up. So, you know what kind of parents are dealing with what kind of family dealing with others that people have to do on a killing on a killing. If that's coming your head your way, seriously, you know, you want to deal with something, even if it's not uncleanness the serious blackmail, emotional blackmail and all these other things that we'll do and caught up costing the society and all that. I mean, are you ready to face all of that? Are you that strong? Is she that strong? And if you are and if all these things are positive, go to the man and say hello, all ticks I'm ready. She's ready. everything ready to in his marriage here. I've got my
own shelter for you know, I'm gonna go to hell five I don't marry right now. Yeah, she's gonna go to hell five. You don't mind me right now? Yeah, we're already gone towards hellfire. Please take it to Jenna. Yeah.
So imagine as you know, if he if he asked you the right questions, and if he if he makes you, you know, marry one and he doesn't Nicola hamdulillah. Please do that. But if one of these things are negative, and you just doing it because you know the three lovey because she just looks nicer wish a married mother kind of, you know, when a father comes with the meekly that wouldn't be running. You know, it is one of those things, you know, then you gotta just back off right now, Brother, you know, he ain't got the guts to do it and just keep your guts where they are. You know, don't don't try and challenge the man. Yeah. Some of you know they even say our sister Oh Suze Marion says she
got sweetie I won't lie will lie, I'll do everything for you. When the time comes right, the guys chickening off, and the guy and got a voice to speak out with you know, he just met, right? They'll tell a man you know, I really want to I really want to and he said he will and he's gonna talk with parents about it and all that, you know. And then the guy's got the courage. He just delays and delays and delays. You know, why are you staying in this harmless? If you're gonna do it, you got the guts to do it. Go speak. Go do it. with pride, do with everyone knowing don't do no other thing. And I know talk to your mom, if your mom says to you that look, the diplomatic way is with all the
ticks that you've got that I'm going to make you go through this, you know, you got to talk to him, don't just get on your backs of whatever. And to do it. If your Eman says that he's going to get you married, you know, through whatever is gonna give you the right advice. He better give you the advice that when those people find out, you gotta be ready. You ready to give the right answers you got to be ready to tell them where you got married, how you got married, not because certificate everything. So if he's going to give you the right answer, and you're going to be ready to live the aftermath of when they find out then you better take all the advice take everything in your mind and
then go ahead.
Otherwise, there's no point honestly is not for most people who's to say things like this. They're really not ready to go through any challenge. Oh, there's one everything they want them to take a magic wand out and say no, Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem it's all good. I just made your parents blind to what's gonna happen it's not gonna happen or give me peace
or love Love Potion? Some guys you know some guy told me yesterday can't believe it is these guys who reading this stuff they find him magical books reading to get a sister
whether it's Islamic literature Hindu literature, right of love this this brothers were doing it and I was so shocked
because they get this book they're buying it in the middle of Brick Lane or something. Right. And it's been sold you know illegal market tries to the buying in the losing the email are they doing right? They really the month of bumper bumper
to bumper right now
and they wish that you know it comes through I don't know you know? How can you be so sick? How can you be so sick, you know, costume magic on a girl to be mesmerized to be loved with you, man, I don't want to see you and that the day that magic breaks man says you can
really choose you to get back to you.
But I have a friend with OCD. He is rather pedantic about Islam issues to the extent of not being able to function correctly. Do you have any generic generic advice to people with OCD please do look at the Department of Psychology and see what advice they can give it as well. In terms of Islam, Islamic advice is that you be next to that person with that type of OCD that they've got. And you have someone has like some people get OCD they will do something else to the Salas little girl to do with cleanliness. So you need to tell them that you know that's it, you've just watched it three times look is washed but someone needs to stand next to them and tell them like the spin is done.
And the next thing they love is done. And you know some some people honestly some didn't get OCD even with going to the toilet they have to spend like first shortcode they have to spend so long in the toilet
So they need a relative to actually tell them or family member their own mother and father, you know, to stand there and tell them that look, you know, time's up, come out, finished, you know, pull up, pull him up, you've washed yourself enough times. Now that excuse me, gentlemen, if they stay with them long enough, and they get them out of it, that's a very good way of getting apart from, you know, making draw for them and so on. But
you can't, you can't sort of leave that the worst thing is when you leave them on their own,
and they sort of go deeper and deeper into it. Okay. Is it wrong to be with any non Muslim brother during class lecture or get together? Should the situation should the situation come out come about feeling safe, because we feel that he will not be interested in us, in comparison being with Muslim brothers would be so uncomfortable because in facturation happens so easily? What is your opinion, a code?
All right, so you're feeling more comfortable with a non Muslim rather than a Muslim? Baba? Yeah. hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil aalameen. Right.
Now it can happen. It can happen.
With the sisters being serious, and I know what she's talking about. Yeah. It's like, you know, my wife, my wife, normally doesn't wear niqab. She has a job, right? And she normally is fine wearing a job, but she don't wear any makeup. And I'm fine with that. But when she goes to dense populated Muslim areas, she feels like wearing a niqab.
Because those guys are like
a woman without a niqab without any harm when it alien come from?
Right. So they happen to just start looking and sometimes Hamza, you know, you go to certain places where Muslim Brothers obviously they, they need to know how to behave.
So what does that mean that you know, Ira lucara, get close to the
perfect shoe wearing, or what curry has, she just had? Yeah, whichever one it is, right?
thing is that sometimes a non Muslim guy, he's just gonna sit there, he's not interested, he's not interested in the job, he's sitting there, he's not gonna get close to his dog in Australia. He just, he's gonna be polite, but he's not going to really, you know, get close to in any way. So what the history is saying that issue, okay to be nervous about. The whole thing about free mixing is it's a lengthy thing. And so many different things can be said. But I'm just gonna try and give you the principles. Number one is though, I'm in this lecture theater Hall right now, and sisters or their brothers are here. But we've got an understanding that we're in public. This is a public
place. There's doors there, the doors here, there's doors there. You know, people can walk in anytime, no one's in secrecy here. We're not here for the purpose of interrupting or mixing in. Now, for example, a nightclub is a public public place for any members of the public to come. But you're there for a different intention, you're there to go and touch up a sister, or one dance with one or trying to get in touch with Robert, you're there for that reason. Now, that's going to be how long that plays itself is made in in a way that you're there to actually interact and mix and touch one another, that's going to be wrong. Or even if there was a place where it's encouraged for you to get
together and to intermingle, and to try and you know, really see each other and try and find your love in a place whatever is wrong, that then this public place will be held on if that was the case. We're not here for this reason. We're here to learn about itself. Oh, you might this might be let's just say this is about philosophy. Let's say you're here for philosophical lesson. And this is the philosophy is talking to you. And you get bored out your heads or whatever. Let's say I'm talking to you now it's a theater the minute non Muslims Yeah, Muslims here men here, women here, wherever it's a public place. a public place is not a place where you come to try and you know, freely mix with
one another. It's not like I'm saying that the brother You know, okay, today's is timing thing. It's not like
the sisters sit where they want and the brother come sits right next to her. You know, just very close to her. You know, that would be wrong as well. Why are you getting close to her in a public place? When you can stay away like you're getting on a bus, you see a sister there, you want to be respectful. You want to go and find a place where you just on your own without sitting next to a sister if you have to go sit next to her brother, Here are six steps to a non Muslim man. Why don't sit next to a non Muslim lady just because she's sitting there. She's having to be alone. As long as you find another seat now if I was to on a bus, and I found there's only one seat there and it's
next to a non Muslim lady, or even a Muslim lady, right? I stand up. Why don't need to come sit next to her for
an hour, not only to stand up, right, but if our confinement is over.
So if you're in a public place, and the place is not made
Or the gathering wasn't done with the intent of getting together and mixing and you're not trying to get close to one another for that reason, then you, you can get together in a public place right? Now, let's say for example, we walk out of here
is still a public place, all the places are public. But suddenly, I might find myself in a private place with a sister. Now, if any group of brothers, any groups of sisters get together in any classroom, where now that publicness will go away, and that privacy will start to creep in. Now, the huruma, or the Haram aspect is coming. So for example, I've got me My friends, all right. And suddenly the shannara the shannara spreads. Yeah, so we're all in the classroom. So I'm, you know, some of how you might hear my sister shout out, Do you need anything? Yeah, we just hear if you need to just tell us in a like, you're creating the platform to try and you know, shannara, please look
over here. shannara, please let one of his sisters, Tara's their soccer crushing storm.
You know, if you're there for that reason, you're trying to create a private thing, even though it's a public public room, right? That's wrong for you to get on the blog, but just get out of the water for you get out of the why you're not faithful. Now, if, for example.
It's not that case, like the sister is asking, you're in a classroom, there's, there's non non non Muslims and the Muslims there, but you're there just to listen to the lecture. And there's only a few of you. It's only from the eight of you sitting in that classroom. What's your reason for being there is a place where there's a doorway, where it's anyone can come in the lecture is there he can walk at any time, most of these doors, you have even glasses where people can see from outside, you're okay, there, as long as you treat it as a public place, you're not trying to make some privacy inside there. Now, if, for example, even in a public place, and look at the reverse of this,
let's say this is a public right now. Right. And there's a sister there, and she's eyeing a barber out from behind, right? And a brother from behind. And she's doing that that's going to be haram for her to sit there and do that she should move to a place go somewhere else and sit there without ironing my Oh, she's just completely not do that. Because that's wrong. So it'd be wrong for her to be in a public place like this. And I came out, she was the reverse the same thing. Now, privacy in Islam is previously understood with looseness, if any looseness can come the now you're going through to the private zone. Now it's Haram. So for example, if I, if I'm going to allow the sister
try and get my phone number,
I'm allowing her to come to my private zone.
Even though we're both in a public place, what about I'm trying to get in contact with it.
If I physically got in contact with her in private place, let's say for example, I go to a coffee shop, sister, then I sit at her table, me and the sister in a public place. But that table to us too is what is it public or private? Con, is it public or private? is a Hello, hello, hello, hello, you're in a public place, but you made your private halwa you're now talking to each other where you know, others are not going to come and intervene with you. And you know, see what you're saying. And because of the awareness of others, or not having awareness of others, you could start talking loosely at any point time now. That's why they say that you should have a maharam involved when you
know going to see a sister when a sister is that even if a man is involved in there, you know, you can't start talking loose. That's the whole point. You can start talking to start going to be law. Have I explained the whole thing about public and private if there's any more questions on this, please put your hands up now.
Any other scenarios with this? Nope. Okay.
I'm gonna finish executive part past 10 on that close, closest bypass Nando's, right? Yep, the five minutes.
What costs occupations would you classify as suitable for a Muslim Student? They're all they're all fine. They're all fine unless you find something Haram in there. So for example,
if you're doing something and
you know people know generally what's uncomfortable, and if you're going to do like, filming or what the quality they are starting, you know, when they start learning how to use the how to use the camera and make films and lowest
photography media online right now. It is going to lead you to become a professional photographer, professional filmer. And you're going to not be hired to go to places to do that and you better see what's coming next. You're going to be called to go to these marriage events to start taking films of these, you know, non Muharram sunstone of yours and take close ups of what you did. With any union practicing non gold on the line.
How can you sit there and start filming close ups of these ladies eating and you know, how wide the mouths become when they talk? or whatever,
you're going to become a lawyer. And then you're going to start now gotten think ahead, you're going to become a person who's going to
defend someone with British law, and you can be alright with Okay, fine. No, we need we do need still Muslim solicitors and lawyers that can work through the system through this country and defend others. But you're gonna have a problem with that, you're going to suddenly start saying, you know, that is wrong for me to start looking at another law, the law of our land measure, when you will start waking him up before you get to that end. Now, I do understand some people might, you know, might become practicing halfway.
And if that's the case, then you got a choice, you better start making the choice fast. even two years, of course, now you find that you're practicing and you don't want to go down that. Well, you make your choice right now, you want to start over again, if you want to change your course you will do something, do it now. Don't finish it and then be something that you don't want to be right. Anyway. I think it's five paths right now.
I mean, it's been a wonderful evening with all of you. And I pray to Allah, that he makes it a fruitful, sitting with one mother may Allah azza wa jal give us the benefit of this may may give us a reward and most of all, please brothers and sisters, think about the part I talked about practicing Islam. There's no point of view come to this talk for anything else and to try and get closer to Allah practice. Islam Allah give me that trophy. Allah give you that ability.
