Office Hours is real, and knows what we conceal, and even knows what the animals feel. We thank Him, we praise Him and on him we have reliance. It is to him we only turn to for our true guidance. And we asked him to send his peace, his blessings Have mercy on the best of human beings and prophets, Mohamed Salah, lalvani, and send them on whom we praise until the very end of our days. And we asked him for steadfastness, guidance, mercy, and to never lead us astray. And for him to save us from the darkness of judgment day and say,
this religion is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala.
It is the single greatest blessing that none of us may simply understand the power of what the last part of Allah has given us, that if we just simply sit and reflect, and maybe they can say that hamdulillah for the blessing of Islam, in and of itself, this would be enough from your day to spend thanking Allah.
There are so many that want this blessing of guidance. There's so many in your city, you see them in the tool, you see them in your day to day lives. When you walk in you, you see what's called chocolate lasagna, like the effect of seeing the effect of misguidance the effect of the conditions in which people live in us just see they're sad, they're upset, you see the effect of how unhappy they are. And yes, you see this not only anomalous, as you see this and Muslims as well.
You see the effects of it, and Muslims as well as non Muslim people who may be outwardly you know, they look practicing what we refer as practicing whatever that means. And we may see in them that they're going through a state of unhappiness, discontentment, they have marital problems, they have family issues, they have grudges against their brother or sister or even mother or father or whoever, or maybe some other person, bad business deal, marriage that's going wrong, all kinds of issues that exists within our own families
don't have to fall in line only Allah knows the problems of each of individuals that are sitting in this room.
And that is why it's very easy that when you're going through the difficulties you're going through to take your son for granted.
Take yourself a breath.
And that was my last panel that I mentioned something very powerful.
yoga you did
Those people who are friends, they're even the closest companions on the Day of Judgment, or argue, or enemies, except those who have consciousness
are conscious of their mode. And this is something that when you reflect on every difficulty and hardship and pain that you're going through, and the arguments you're having, they literally don't matter.
that argument that you said, I said, That doesn't matter. That arguing you're having about that 5000 pound business deal that's going around who cares? To be honest, on the day of judgment, you're going to set her for a loss of Parliament's Allah, and you're going to see the person you had a disagreement with. And you'll be judged over something that's so insignificant, because it was never solved in this dunya. We're going to talk about people today that did not take their supplements
that did not speak that did not think that Islam is just something that was given to them and they never reflected over it. But people that actually internalize that Allah guided them to the stuff. And the more you learn about stories of these people, the more you will be thankful and appreciative of your old faith, the more you will have a lighter heart, the more you will not take things to an extent beyond our faith teaches us the more you understand to forgive, the more you understand that you yourself have the opportunity to go through a transformation like these people did, then these are not some of the famous stories that you know, when we talk about transformative experiences a
loss of power.
A woman can have a
says that there is a dead person. The example of a person is dead, who doesn't have guidance person is completely without wife who has no guidance. And as far as how much guidance you have out of it, some people have been a participant in said you're losing life. So law says what there's nothing with a zero there's no heartbeat this
nopales Eliana then you a lot of processes this person is deceased person is dead that leads revival
does that mean treat them like the dead? It means give them What a shock Kingdom event? Right? A loss of Canada says is that a dead person who has been brought to life by us? When a law brings you back to the hearts of people? What does he do? It's like, it's like a reality shock. It's like a reality shock. We bring them back to life by us. I won't kind of lay it in for him now. We brought him to life. Do you know what this verse is talking about? It's talking about the title. And alongside us, not only do we bring it back to life, when he was dead,
we met him a life that illuminated others darkness as well. He was walking on Earth, the life of the sun.
And a lot of sense.
Automatic psychology may have the example of which is someone trapped in deep darkness who cannot escape.
And this way, evil deeds are made to seem alluring to people. evil deeds are made to seem alluring Look, it's just, it's just so fun. Just the front, just one Friday, just one Saturday, just one hit. Just one syringe, just one pill, just one transaction. It's just once. It's just once it's alluring. The idea is
that if you just do this once, then it's okay. Don't worry about it. Your life is long. This is how the last kind of describes how people are learned by being misguided. When you are pushed by either peer pressure your friends, university co workers or your own family. Sometimes they'll push you in a direction, you don't have a really good business deal. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. When you hear these words, immediately see our mission opposite.
Because the test is coming.
Once in a lifetime opportunity, you just have to put 10,000 down with the 50,000 back.
Right, so alluring that they were saved from the alert of the dude. The material wealth that pushes and pulls us every which direction every day of our life. There's a test. This verse is talking about one competitor and that competitors probably won.
This verse said Omar was dead before we brought him back to life. And not only that, we made him a walking living life for the whole of humanity. Now when you hear the word, when you just hear the word aroma, you smile.
You smile. writer of a man who stood so strong Islam spread through him that he became the realization of the prophecy. He became the miracle but also also talked about how the prophecy that Islam will spread to the east in the West, and Islam will spread and he said a lot but I've been given the keys to Sham Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, okay. And I use it a lot. But I've been given the keys to Persia, who was the who was the answer to this prophecy literally was
they were the literal miracle the Prophet spoke about. This is a historical miracle in the Quran, and the Sunnah of the profits lesson. So we already know what we already know. But how is transition used to be a drop to drink alcohol. his day job was to beat Muslims when he found them. That's how much he hated us that he was beating a woman by the name of Rubina beanie her before Islam. Why? Because the people who accepted Islam, surely he described them. He was there were seven people who accepted some early, earliest other people were seven. Now coming to family law schools. He said the prophets I set up in a book, countless prophets, I said, they were being protected by the family and
their tribes. They were well known members of their tribes, they were protected by a lot of and compassion and tribal weapons that were taken. They're being protected by them. But as far as he said, the rest of them, all of them were slaves, and they would be beat beings. They would you would see them being beaten in the streets of Mecca, among them cadabra did not get out of the water level, you know, so he got homie and a number of women. Among them was Govinda. And a woman by name was a needle and her and her daughter. So what would you do with those who are trying to exercise their their pressure against the weak, they always target the weaker of the community. So he would
be beating this woman to the extent that he was beating her so much. He stopped and he said, I'm sorry.
And the woman's have finally stopped.
At least he said he started. And he says, No, no, I'm not saying sorry, because I'm sorry for beating you. I'm sorry because I got tired.
And I will continue again.
beating this woman until a worker walks by he says do not feel a law in the right way this woman.
He said, he bought her food. And we
bought this woman's food.
They used to say that in the streets of Mecca, that we believe that a donkey will accept the snap before
we believe his donkey was set before actually there are a lot and a lot of guys. A lot of Rochester, we may know the story of Amida. But it is not to speak about those four like shining lights. The prophesied cinema said a very powerful.
He said a worker normal in general, or like stars look from the lower heaven.
When we're driving the shuttle, we will cut their station he said you will see lights in the heaven from where you are. He said you don't wear that. He said those are
And there's one Hadith which gives us all hope.
So the lord of marriage,
he said that a man came to the Prophet. So I said, Let's see now. I don't have much, much needs.
I don't pray much. I don't fast much. He's honest. This is the somehow they're honest with themselves. They don't create a show or their email. They don't pretend they're very honest.
He came to the Prophet said you don't have much.
He said, What? What is it that you want? He said, I want to be with you.
That's what I want. He said, I don't have too much. But I have one thing I have the level of a lot and
that person is with whom they love each other saw the law, who was the young man,
young man 10 1112 years old. I spent the entire lending period 10 years with a solar plexus. He was like his personal health work
hard and also invests in the long run.
He said that I have never heard a heartbeat that's more beloved to me than this how to eat and the rest of the components.
This is our most beloved time. He said, Why? To look at us. He said that I love abubaker all over the prophets all wise. And I know there is no way my deeds are equal to have a look at our law. And the prophets I said that the saying of the Prophet, you be with those whom you love is included. And I my love because I love Allah and the prophets, I said and I hope to be with them in gender.
So yes, these are the superstars, the other people. What about the rest of the woman? They're not like,
protected overall, they're coming since they're human beings. There's so many matrices. This is well known and documented. And it's not there's nothing wrong with that anybody who says
this is outside the outside of Sunni Islam, no one says this. major competitors make mistakes. This is normal. But what was the difference? they corrected themselves.
They corrected themselves that is a loss of political Center. Welcome to law one world one, that even though they're imperfect, they turn back to the last paragraph. And there's grave mistakes Some of us are really committed to
among the matters of the law to your to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he
came to me, he said, What did you do? He said, I committed to that the proper term to space program, why is not befitting that you do something in private, you go and expose the sin. Even if you want to admit to it, don't do that. Don't do that if you feel guilty, repent to the last paragraph. So the Prophet turned his face from as I'll be alone.
Then he came from the other side came to the face of the problems themselves love, I want you to cleanse me. And he said, maybe you just kiss her.
He said, x y&z.
And the Prophet turned to six, four times until finally the prophets I said that Elton, did you not have the sense to go and ask the minister All
right, he said, but now that you have come this is the rule of law. And he asked the compiler so fulfilled the law. The last kind of parallel analysis
is also comes to him and says Yes, a lot. He came to me saying he was he had regretted and felt guilty of what he had done and you want to seek repentance. He said, he said, he said maybe learn a lesson. You shouldn't have brought it to me if you want to prevent this
Another one a woman by the name of she's from the harmony tribe, law media.
She also had the exact same story at the end of which people started to speak that about her. She's such as such he did such and such, says, Don't ever speak about her. She made such a repentance that if it was the follower to divide her repentance over all of the people of Medina, you would all be forgiven
over how powerful the repentance was.
So these are the these are the Sahaba. The Prophet spoke about them, and he spoke about their forgiveness. What about others? What about others in Islamic history, we're gonna speak about a few minutes. So it encourages us. Honestly, sometimes when we speak about the Sahaba people think they're super human beings.
They're beings that they don't have normative human reactions or relationships or or disagreements. But they do. And that's why when you romanticize or you overdramatize the lives of people that are human just like us and have a problem with people don't start to have expectations, like they can do what they did. This is not true. That's not true at all. So we have to be honest with the lives of us,
so that we can teach our children look, they're human beings just like us. But there's one difference. They were truthful with a loss or loss truthful, that says
they are honest. They have sincerity among the people among the greatest of scholars is a scholar by the name of William
fillet even al
this man used to be a highway robber that kills people for money.
He was so bad that the high the the caravans that would go to highs, those were the caravans he would attack.
Okay, so this is not a horrible thing. This is very, very horrible. And he was never caught for the act. And that's why he was ever such, there was no evidence for what he was he was doing in case somebody comes and says, Well, how are these criminals becoming, becoming Muslim or etc. But the reason for him coming to Islam and repenting, because he's already Muslim, is that he loved a woman
was a girlfriend.
And he was wanted to visit this this woman.
So he found that there was no way to enter the house. So he wanted to hide and sneak into her house when he climbed the wall
that will try to sneak into her house.
This is following the middle. Philemon, when he got to the top of the of the of the wall, he heard the neighbor, it was the middle of the night. What's the neighbor doing? It's a beautiful night like London tonight.
It's beautiful outside, you can sit outside and enjoy yourself. So he's sitting outside, he's praying. He's praying, look at the difference between the two. One of them is about to do whatever he's going to do a lot of right. And then there's a man sitting here praying. It's how the law puts you in the right place in the right time for you to hear the right things. You will see this in your life, how long he was sitting in cat Hall, you won't do like massive worrying difficulty. You just had a fight with your wife or your husband. And the the lecture is about forgiveness, about overlooking people said over overlooking people's mistakes. Excuse me. It's as if Allah sent you
here. So you can hear these words, right? You felt like this, I'm sure that it's like you're the only one sitting in the entire rest of that person talking to you. Right? You felt this way? Right? Have you felt this way?
Most of you, the rest of you just make sure. Okay, I know everyone is focused on why you know what those are those moments where you're like, Wow, that's pretty crazy that I was feeling this situation and less of like this guy was sent to me or this lady or this advisor or somebody, even non Muslim, I tell you something on the street, in your job or your work or your family might just randomly say something, you know, that is that's a sign of the existence of a loss.
That's a sign that law exists. That's why he said to you personally delivered guidance, won't you reflect just a little bit?
Just a little bit. So political video is on top of this wall and he hears the spending, he looks over and he's reciting the verse over and over again, this verse, and I'm getting into levena Ave, and Tasha Fuu
is it not time for those who say that they believe they claim belief they believe that their hearts become soft to the remembrance of their of their work?
Won't you remember your loved ones? Won't you remember your loved ones? It's just hitting me up. And you might think I've heard this this hundreds of times. When someone is drowning in darkness, and then the word a lot sometimes it's never heard maybe months alive. I recently read the story of of a sister who came back to Seoul. She said it's been probably a month I haven't prayed. And the moment I said to him
Hello, which is just starting to break down.
Why? Because Emacs has a sweetness to it, you can't explain what has become normal and it's become normative to your life, you start losing the sense of sweetness. So what do you need to do need to shock your soul? You need to shock your soul visit the graveyard, the prophesied sentences, go visit people that are sick. Visit the orphanage, the prophet said whoever wants their heart to become saw go visit an orphan. We don't even have to do even that. If you don't have time to go want to do it. I want you to go online, just type
Yemen orphan relief.
And I want you to watch it for two minutes
of how 85,000 of our children are being killed.
Every 20 minutes. A mother in Yemen is literally a child literally since I've started talking to children never have passed away.
When you see that, what does it do? It makes you It makes your heart song.
Go visit orphans. Go to the hospital. This is how you revive your faith. You can't just you know they say Roberta.
I think you're just going at it routine. Every day is the same routine over and over again with yourself. Sometimes focus sometimes you don't even know where they're coming up. It's always a little low on every single song. That's not a problem. That's not a problem. That's all you know, the problem is the focus. If you focus on the law,
the law is a full on every one of my saw. He said why mix it up the limit. He said I love the rule of law. Because it speaks about the law. He says you will go to Agenda because of your love.
The issue is not the time or how much the issue is the hardware is it so this is the example of filling liquidity all when he has the bad come to his heart.
When you hear this one person
saying is it not time for people who say they believe that they just remember their or once? Remember our last caller that?
He said when you heard that? He said yes. All along. Yes, it is time. It is time to cut an apologia hour holy,
isn't he? He said it's now time. It's been tough.
And he loves that one's house. He went and spent his night somewhere else. And he waited on his journey in terms of going back to his job. When he got
up the next day. There was a caravan that was passing his job time. What does he do for a living? He sticks people up on the caravan and takes all their money.
So when he got to them, he said where are you going?
They said that we're going towards the direction of Mecca. He said Okay. Do you have anyone that is with you? He said yes. We have to carry and stop our way in the village because we're preventing
attack from Philemon. Al. No, he's talking to me.
Please, what do you think about him? He's like, he's the most horrible man I've ever known.
He attacks even though I'm a judge. This affects believable. Yeah, he's like, will I die? And this is what people say about me.
I want you to just forget for a moment out for four seconds brothers or sisters, whoever's here.
I want you to just imagine the perception of of others around you. What do they have?
What do they have?
The one thing that doesn't allow me to sometimes sleep at night? Is what your wife say about you. And
what will your children say about you?
He was always smiling. He cared about me. He didn't. He didn't attack me by moments of weakness and failure.
He uplifted me and said, You know what, I'm always there for you.
He told me he loves me. He told me a beautiful to never seek attention from anywhere else because Baba loves them.
Or Mama loves them. We're missing this a lot. You know what the Isaiah said, when they were this, they would say describe the prophets of Allah. He said, he said we don't have words to describe.
Kindness is intimate to me.
He was in the service of his family.
I want you to let that let it hit let it sink, it hurts.
That's what the the most important thing in our life is. The people who are close to you or this reality in general.
And if you're trying to impress those around you, this is the biggest problem. This is the biggest problem. The people that matter the most we're neglecting the most the people that are lost that have the most rights and have the most say and will be the ones who brought to a lot of losses from Samia. A law heard this statement of the woman who complained about her and this is an entire chapter of the Quran.
You don't want to say
In the streets of India, that's the concept that's the woman that loves that I heard her words.
You would recognize her to the alarm or words
of how her status
this man and shook him and shook him, just the idea of will I pass this is what people say about. So what do people say about you?
How do people remember you are not talking about the news and what how will your family remember?
That's what we need to change need to focus.
And this hitmen he's a Tomita. muslimeen
he's he said, Muslims believers in this area, they fear me. He said, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah hoo, South LA LA. He said, look at this.
They have consciousness of what's happening. It's not just electric comes by some guy comes in I called Molotov cocktails.
What does that it they come here and throw a lecture at you, like throw this massive amount at you and then they walk away?
Or the hotel or someone's giving you a speech that's hitting your heart and what happens that was a beautiful speech. Mashallah, later on when everything was said, the man he spoke to himself, he said, Well, Lonnie, I know that a lot of broccoli here in front of them and made me hear that verse a little odd. So that alone shows me now to turn back.
There may be that a lot teaches me now to change. That a lot louder is giving me an opportunity. Now. You know what the opportunity is the opportunities that you're hearing.
The chance for you to say a sell for a lot becomes better every sense of the world, just
as an opportunity for you to turn to a loss contest and say, You know what, I need to be more patient. You know what I cannot negate to the feelings of my wife. There's no such thing by the way, as your feelings are wrong. Everybody's Rose was buried and buried and you're about to get married. There's no such thing as telling your wife your feelings are wrong.
There's no such thing as though Okay, what women want is confirmation and what men want is respect.
And not have their words. Be based on assumptions. You said that you meant this about my mother, your mother and her friends. Know No, be direct speak ask, Is this what she meant? No. Okay, so women, understand your husbands. Understand your husbands don't make assumptions about it will be so peaceful. And men they just want confirmation from you, your mother, your sisters, your wives, everyone, women one confirmation they want you to understand you heard for them, you cannot tell their feeling is wrong. This is not allowed. And the problem is is that I never went to a person said your feeling is held a woman in Medina was crying out in the streets crying out the process.
Also I'd like to say your prior your action that you're doing here is maybe not be pleasing to the last panel. Please say in that in that it will lead to a lot more Jimmy Kimmel, it was lovely.
We belong to a lot to him we return or a lot reward the the hardship that I'm going through and gradually better than why I've lost she lost her husband. She was crying out saying the view so decided he didn't say to her don't feel this way. Your feelings are wrong. What are you doing? He left her her feelings are valid. It's a moment of sadness, but this crying out that's what's now please exercise restraint. Because this crying out is not pleasing.
As far as your feelings the offseason confirmed. So what did this woman say? She said that how can anyone replace the husband that I have? He was alone the First Lady Informatica, the ones who are among the first to accept this now. It was one of the normals of people and he took care of my family who will be better than my husband. She said this source of trauma. This is the believer, she said, but I believed
I believed in the promise of muscle loss. So what happened? She said, I sent her out six months later, the prophet cater proposal.
And my dream came true. This is another concern about the love that she became other than the woman she went to law center and look at the honest conversations because we romanticize she went to the prophet SAW a lot I have a I have children are you sure you want to marry me? And the prophet SAW seven is mercy said don't worry there are children as well then we take care of
so the idea being don't negate people's emotions, confirm them say understand how you feel. And you know, I call this Why are the prophets I said it says he the one who apologized even if they're
even if they're, even if they're right, right, not wrong. They should be pausing anyway. Thank you.
Good, the one who apologizes even if there is
All right. You should be pausing anyway. Right? Right.
Somewhere all right so he said he's a positive
idea if you're watching should be positive don't don't play the victim when you're wrong brothers and sisters don't play the victim if you did wrong apologize to them says whoever apologize even if they're right they will get the highest level of gender
This is everybody thinks this is when you get an argument with your brother and some other guy at the shop and this is with your wife first and your husband This is what your child and your parents This is good. This is when you're Muslim that your brother and your sister give it up give up arguments give up the graduates practice this law you live so in such a beautiful way if you mastered the art of communication that was the last lesson
all of this goes back to
he had that realization saying listen if I'm hearing something a lot put me here to hear it
brought me here so that I can turn allows giving me a chance you don't want others because a lot gives us chances and chances and chances and chances and then a lot test you with something in your body
or test you in your family
or test you in your children.
But this is reality, this is reality you will see it and you will see
mela protect us all this this is pseudo universal principles
and then people are forced to turn to Allah. Allah says in the Quran people come to Allah
Allah tala means voluntarily or Kindle ha by by not all of this of course, but you will put you in a situation where you yourself are forced to go to a loss in sadness
and seeking from them and then a number of years may pass by
your health and your family. So that allows except for Milan makers of those that come voluntarily
and this was delivered
he said this is time
How much are you going to live? How much
how much time is going to pass
along expecting you from from any of us perfection? In fact some of the scholars you know if you ask well if you say Oh Allah allow me to be like India or allow me to be perfect allow me to be sinless don't allow me to come in since some of us make this to our this last call.
You know why? Because you're gonna consume
you're gonna cut mistakes asking for perfection is called dive deep into our asking for perfect perfection is is going beyond the limits of grace what you got, oh Lord, give me a half year
a man a sense of the profit or loss I asked a lot of old messenger of a lot I asked a lot for patience. He said don't ask for patience you're not going to be able to bear it.
What does that mean? the jaw is when you ask for patience that is testing you with something and then you're asking patients to go through it so don't ask
patients is only when you're going through the difficulty then
before the difficulty asked for apphia ask philosophy preserve you preserve you from sin preserve your body from from sickness so that's why the prophets of Allah instead of every morning to evening, he would say a very beautiful girl along with me but I thought I can't do it alone without his details Amelia allowed me to Samantha
level everything you get why do you Why do you want Maddie A long time ago it was still our body right alongside it this is a beautiful job make sure you stay up every morning Oh law preserve protect me and grab me preservation in my demon dunya in my in this world in the afternoon. Allah preserve and protect me my family my well Oh Allah Cover me go. If I'm going to show everybody our sins. Me I wouldn't have a face here. Brother Shafi wouldn't have a face here. None of us would have a face here. We're looking at each other like Are you serious?
every one of us will show is definitely better than me.
But the idea being that you asked a lot for citizen along store a lot. A lot is like a thing no one sees the thing that no one sees. And no it gives me safety in what I fear.
Human safety and what I fear I won't ask you. What do you feel? Don't tell me john them and that's all everybody knows. What do you fear?
What do you fear? What are some of your fears?
I'll pick on you don't worry because everybody has a fear here. It's not a it's not a factor.
Question, brother right there. I'm looking straight at you. What do you hear?
What do you hear?
The fear of losing one's parents.
success in the future.
Sharks in the
You know, generations future generations.
what about my children? Your children?
Go straight. Right. Okay. Especially, sickness, sickness and especially
you, Nike trackpads.
something that a lot of people think about.
is a lot more to accept
the test bro.
Falling into the same sentence.
One of the most powerful things that a lot of people fear is also loneliness to be left alone. And I want to ask you what is the worst? What is the worst punishment? A law describes?
What's the worst punishment?
Like hell, okay, your job does.
What's the worst punishment the type of punch below give me like putting it on your head. I'm talking about a categorical type of type of punishment.
Okay, I'll say last time that describes the people who will come on the date of judgment, having so much hope that alone will just respond to them.
So they spend eternity acid, or largest listen to us.
Listen to us. These are people who will go through their punishment but have both thinking alone. And
finally, a law tells the angel there is no response.
There is no source.
When people lose absolute hope,
and they're no longer accepted by love to be even heard. This is the worst punishment in
more than any physical punishment.
the idea that if he continues this way, he will be cut off from ever having to obey the law.
So he changed his way
He became one of the greatest colors and this looks
unfamiliar but he was one of the greatest medical scholars in Islam. You have to study his books, if you want to be as called an A jurist, because at one moment he changes.
One moment changes. There's another great scholar by the name of the lovely in the water.
of the London water was a student example
to the student that hopefully somebody went up to him and said, Tell me about your beginning.
What was it like in the early days before you know became serious became a scholar? He said I used to drink. Naveen and Kufa libido is a type of wine that doesn't make you intoxicated yet.
You can drink it, you're okay. Like, you know,
you have some excuse me, and it will not make you drunk until you keep drinking two or three, then you're drunk. So this the scholars of Islam differ or isn't allowed to drink or is not allowed to drink. Okay, so I was.
So I used to drink him, I used to go drunk. He used to get drunk.
He said, I dry I was a young man who drank wine.
He said, I love wealth and rejoice in foul things. This is I tell the story. He's I invited some brothers of mine to a garden
where they would write in the flute of fruit, we will bring the concert they will men and women that will come and they will dance and drink.
We ate and drank until we were overcome by drunkenness and asleep
at the end of the period before Fischer, and I took out the flute to play. So you took out the instrument to play. And you started to sing this line of poetry? Is it not time that you had mercy on us? And the fight the critics and those who are hitting your haters, so they had haters back then they're still laughing about their haters. When people criticize that I got my haters and then my haters and all that stuff. That's what he was thinking about, is that I was resigning This
is that a man? I hear next to me. In the morning, prayer recited that he's saying, is it not time to have mercy on us? You're always criticizing me and hating me. That was his verse, he hears the same verse, out of the sight of
a tough shot for rule
of law says, Is it not time? Not that damn mercy on you? You're putting your haters Have mercy on you? Is it not time that the hearts of those who believe should be humbled to remember a lot, it was a response to him, he was in the right time in the right place. When he heard this, it literally shocked him
in the state.
And he started to break down.
And he threw his his food and he just kept repeating the verse. Is it not time for us to be humbled? Is it not time to remember? He said, Yes, Lord, it is time is that I went after that I broke up the party. The next day, everybody left, I never have that moment again. And I wanted to start to study.
And then he left them out for some time, he became one of the greatest scholars
who so amazing, a lot of blessing with the amount of a large amount of wealth. It was it was
one of the things that he did was, he would take people on over on Patreon, right? So he would tell them, anyone that wants to come to my care, I'd run into combat, I won't condition you will give me all of your money for me to save, keep, and then I will give you for what you want to spend, you just come to me like a bank. He's a debit card, you just come to me. If you want money, I'll give you the money. So they would collect everybody's money, they would they would spend on gifts, all that stuff just come to me. They would spend the entire way from him off all the way to Mecca, and he would be spending on them while they're having to spend on them, then he would return all the
money spent on them. When they got back, they have their gifts, they have their belongings, he opens the massive chest that has all the money that they gave them. He had spent from his all wealth, and he gives every single individual back the money that they gave. So this was this was
Look at the transformation. The final person that we will discuss with there's many people that we can talk about is a guy by the name of a beloved.

was known for hanging out constantly with none other than the worst of people like you want to have a posse and his like crew. They were like rappers and thieves and criminals and gang members. That was his crew.
And what he would do is he would bring in
the party, he would facilitate the party for these people. So on one occasion of the law in the messenger, apparently was with his friends drinking and in front of him. There was a massive rush.
It was a massive rush while they were drinking. So they looked up. They said What is that? What's the people rushing to? He saw a large number of people gathered around someone. And this person was seated on his donkey, not even a horse because he couldn't afford a horse. So I thought it was curious. He went up to him and he's wanted to know who this person was with his alcohol with alcohol. So why is everyone crowding around this individual? So he went there with a pile of alcohol on his head, and he asked the people surrounding who this was why you were surrounded by this person. So the people said this is a very famous enough. A very famous
so he said What's his name? He said sure about they said about a show.
Hajaj children. congenital is like a great scholar. It is well known to people to society. So below his wife, who was shot on a jet, I don't know what he What does he do. So this is a one simple habit. That's how much he didn't know about anything. The one thing will happen. So they will fire. The person that marries memorizes. teaches and acts on the Hadith of the prophets of Allah. So remember, when he was sitting on his uncle bill goes up to him and says to him, if you are,
tell me in marriage to be a hobby, he was holding the smoking, alcohol, so not sure. But he went looked at him and he saw his situation. So he said to him, he didn't attack and he didn't chastise him. He simply said, what he said, the purpose of the law, and the law of inertia from him. He said, If a person does not have any shame, then let him do what he wants.
that if you don't have shame, they do what you want.
And that doesn't mean go do what you want. It's a century of you.
Have some shame, have some decency.
So when he said this,
a build on muscle, he first he heard the stories of muscle loss, I said, whenever he has to power law, then the process has to say that you have no shame to do what you want. And he said, am I a shameless person, and my personal profitable witness against me that You're shameless. And he kept saying this himself to the extent he went home. And he stayed some days in his room, it was a winter depression. He thinking, what have I done with my life until now? What am I going to be known for? I was known as a drunk, who just will be alone.
So he repented to a loss. He came out of his room and told his mother, I'm leaving the country. And I'm going to leave this place that people know me as a drug.
So his mother agreed, he said, I asked some of the people where you can acquire knowledge of Islam. He said, I want to be like him. I'm sure. He's 100. Why am I not 100? What makes me different from him, I'm sure.
He's a Soca. So he said, the scholar says go to, if you want to go anywhere, you go to the best. If you want to go anywhere, you go to the best, not the best scholars in your city, here in London, right? He said go to Mount Malik. And his mother also is in Medina, go to him. So when he went there, he studied in mathematic for a number of years. And he became one of the main narrators and students of

these are some examples of some of the most righteous to most righteous of people do not have the best of the game. And that is why even not by not extending the famous Egyptian
scholar and the wise man. He says that whoever corrects themselves and brings light to their path alone will make their end illuminated as well. alone will make the event illuminated as well. The prophet SAW I said in the sake of a block is what
we call a team.
Meeting, what happens at the end is what matters most. But you cannot reach that end, unless you try to the path the way you're supposed to. So it's not about just once. It's not just about me, it's just one girl. It's just one date. It's just one hit. It's just one time. It's just one pill. It's just one cell. It's just one transaction is just one moment.

And she led to one of the greatest Islamic Emirates to be established in Morocco. One woman, one woman say that, talking about
just some modern examples. Finally, I'll give you one final thing. There was a female French rapper
who accepted Islam, you know why? Because she used to go to our favorite diner, who was by a North African chef, that just treated her nicely.
That just asked about her when she physically looked like she was not doing well. And then eventually gifted her up on because of the relationship that they built.
She wrote that shaft a letter in the restaurant, saying, I would like to first thank the chef with the beautiful foods. And I would also like to say that you always been there for me, genuine care. And I found the true faith in Islam, through our interactions with shadowline. And lot number four, she's very well known in France.
