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

hamdulillah you want to stay steady, you want to start Pharaoh whenever the Lemurian fusina mcrt armanino manga de la omiya fell into it that Olia Machina. Brothers and sisters. We are in session three now.

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

And in this session, I'm going to talk about how our sauce lm built a new block. And that is the block of arcada. Or if you want a more simple term Eman, or belief.

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

Why did I leave this block?

00:00:34--> 00:01:23

quite late, I did not begin with it as the first block. While I already told you why I did this. I already said it in session two. Before you ask anyone to believe in anything, you have to build bridges of love and confidence. And throughout the period that I've spoken about in session two, or so Salim was doing exactly that. He was cuddling. He was kissing, he was standing. He was separating terrified children. He was giving them dates. So that when the moment is right, it becomes easy for him to say, believe in me. I am the Prophet, love me. Because to go to gender, you have to love the Prophet.

00:01:24--> 00:02:10

love Allah because Allah sent to you that whom you love. You understand how our key there was built? You understand how a man was built? How do we build our brothers and sisters? I think today, our understanding of demand and our key there is there's a lot of a handle or not. is Allah over the throne? Or where is Allah throne? is Allah everywhere or in heaven, polemics, intellectual debates and struggles. But the simple question is, do we really love Allah? Are we really prepared to sacrifice our life for Allah? More importantly, or probably less importantly, or equally importantly, do we love our source Allah more than we love our bungalow? Or detached? Or I don't

00:02:10--> 00:02:21

know what mobile or car no genuinely love? Actually, before asking this question, do we really know the prophet SAW Selim wants to love him? Can we love someone that we can't even imagine?

00:02:23--> 00:03:05

Love is not an intellectual or rational endeavor. Love is that brothers and sisters love is that if I mentioned the name of the girl that you love, or the boy or whatever, you say, the heartbeat begins your your blood pressure, things happen. If I say Mohammed Salim what happens? He say Salalah alayhi wa sallam, and that's it. Now, it was not that at all, with the Sahaba You know why? Because and this is the veneration here is mute, when ever the Sahaba here are so seldom speaking, they straight away unconsciously turn to Him,

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

or when they hear that someone says, So, seldom I heard him once say this, they straight away, you know, when there is a talk or a conference and people are talking etc, you have to just say like do like this or or hit on the, for people to listen or clap or do something or just shout, it was enough for the Sahaba if they are to be kept quiet, to say, by the way, all of a sudden law and they will all keep quiet. Can you imagine that? And some of them might cry and some of them the heartbeat, this is genuine love.

00:03:41--> 00:03:57

Because they have been the recipients of all this emotions. They have been, they have built this emotion, the block of emotion on the top of an emotional block that I talked to you about. I think that to build the amount of your children

00:03:58--> 00:04:08

I think I would say immediately build that emotional block. But you know what i want to shock you, I want to say build first your emotional block.

00:04:09--> 00:04:51

Because then you will be able and successful to build an emotional book, you have to show them and they have to see it in your face that you love them that in Juma you say some of the law or sell them that whenever you eat or drink or dress or talk or behave. You are inspired by the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah they must see that and they are very intelligent and they are able to see it. So if they see that you are watching friends and you are not missing a series, they will know that you love friends more perhaps than you love the other side of him, which you just put in the library and you never open and read. So this is exactly what I'm trying to say. This is how it was

00:04:51--> 00:04:57

then feasible for our asylum to build nakida of the children.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

I want to just hit it harder.

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

Again and say that the children adored Allison sallallahu Sallam and this is a statement that I have to justify.

00:05:08--> 00:05:14

Let me before that say to you this quotation that Allah says it about also a solemn.

00:05:16--> 00:05:25

And this quotation initially was to be mentioned in session one, but I thought you might not appreciate it then. But I think now we've reached the stage where you can appreciate it more.

00:05:26--> 00:05:41

I lead Navy pilot when he describes our solar cell and he says, mandra, who harbor who, if you encounter him for the first time, you will be terrified of him, not terrify you out of respect, you will feel that he is a special person.

00:05:42--> 00:06:22

But when you interact with him, woman, Carlota humare fan. But when you interact with him, and you become friends with him, you love him. And children are in that equation. no exception. When the children see him at the beginning of his asylum, I'm shy. But when they when he calls them and gives them data and kisses them and holds them, they fall in love with him. This is the the process. And when they fall in love with him, they fall in love with him with everything. And I will justify that. Let's focus on something that you've heard. Some of you might have heard a lot. But again, think about it, when they've been hired if they're the one that was adopted by aerosol sauce alum,

00:06:22--> 00:07:06

and he is the one that divorced his wife zeyneb, which then later eresource, Alan got married to say Devin Harris was adopted by our saw Selim, he raised them up when he was a young boy. And when it seems that his father and uncle of Zaid came and realized that he is in Mecca, because he was kidnapped from his family and turned into a slave. And imagine the father and the uncle coming and saying to date, I am your father, I am your uncle, the father and the uncle. This is my father, this is the brother of my father. And four years he has not seen them.

00:07:08--> 00:07:25

And they say he has a you are free, come with us. Or Mohammed, release aid. He said it's up to him and look at this democracy for him. I use this word, it's his choice, it's his decision. And they said something that is to me, constitutes the core of aqidah

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

he says

00:07:32--> 00:07:49

I will not prefer you over this man. or father or uncle. I will not prefer you over this man. Meaning I will not love you more than this man and therefore I'm not going with you. Why why what happened? Did he brainwash you know,

00:07:50--> 00:08:13

in me to mean whether Roger che and man ability a thoroughly I saw from this man, an attitude that I will never prefer anyone over him, even if it was my father, or my uncle, or anything else. Brothers and sisters. What is arcada? In a nutshell, what is our key there

00:08:14--> 00:08:52

isn't one of the manifestations of al Qaeda is to love. Our souls are seldom more than you love your father and your mother say they've inherited did not know that this constitutes art either. And even if that does constitutes art, either, he's prepared to do it naturally, without being asked to do it. I'm just saying in a nutshell, they believed in our creed and understood it before it was institutionalized into books and lectures. They applied it before that they believed before they were asked to believe

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

this is arcada

00:08:55--> 00:09:11

selling did not sit with them and said Allah has a handle No, no did not engage in that. And look at the map key sources that were revealed. Cuando la dee da cattle waka is all about the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:14--> 00:09:57

They loved him so much, that they knew that one day he will die, but they want to be with him even after his death in general. And one of them was nslm Malik are on the line in a sigh Hi, this is mentioned in the book of Bukhari and Muslim man came look this is Anna's holding the camera now. A man he says A man came to a prophet Muhammad SAW Selim and says yo Sula, la when is the hour and you know the Hadith most of you probably, but again you look at it from a certain dimension, the dimension of IML and that you have to perform and you have to make action etc. to go to general without also setting them and sell them and what have you prepared for it is answering the question

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

with a question because this is more important than the

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

Answer. He said you had a Salalah not much work. Not much action, except that I love you so much. You're a solo loss alum. And also Selim replied by saying, and my mom and

00:10:12--> 00:11:00

you will be with whom you love full stop. endo Hadeeth. Now honestly, Malik leaves his camera and holds the microphone and speaks to you. Do you know what he says? As a commentator on that event or incident? He says nefarian abishai. He says, Did you see Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, this incident? This incident made me extremely happy. Because without this incident, I would never have thought that there is a possibility of seeing the prophet SAW Selim and being with him in general. Oh, Allah. I bear witness that I love also saw Selim for you to make me see him again. In gender. The one who's saying this is a 1516 years old boy, he doesn't want to see a movie in the

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

cinema. He doesn't want to see this girl or that this or that he wants to see or saw Selim. Well, you're seeing him No, no, no, I'm not thinking about now. I'm thinking what more of love do you want? What more of a passion Do you want of wanting to see our sauce? Lm not in this dunya because this is an hamdulillah I'm going to hold strong to that. But I'm worried that I might not see him in general.

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

And not only that,

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

to love someone

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

is to love what he loves.

00:11:39--> 00:12:10

Even if I don't like it, why not? Well, depends. If your wife loves this, I don't know what you will love that too. Oh, your mother or your brother or your sister. What difference Oh, Selim loves something. If he loves cucumber, you might be allergic to cucumber cucumber or I don't like this or this or that fine. But that was not the case with the children of our salsa sell them again in the book of Bukhari Muslim tirmidhi in Abu Dhabi famous Hadith.

00:12:11--> 00:12:55

But the narration is in Buhari this narration, and nsabp Malik on the line again, ns is holding the camera. He says, I went with our asylum and entered into a house where there was a young tailor, it seems that also Sam went to visit a young Taylor. Now what is fascinating so far is that he says I went with a saucer. So imagine also Selim is working with a child, number one, number two, the Taylor is young. So Salim is working with the young to meet young children around the prophet or the Prophet around children. So he enters to the tailor. And the tailor out of kindness and hospitality brings some porridge and to Francois Selim to eat and within that porridge, that is pumpkin

00:12:56--> 00:13:12

within that porridge, so you might say, what's this pumpkin mixed with porridge But anyway, this is the food that was available at that time and that young Taylor provided, it seems that he did not like too much the Polish or he was fascinated with a pumpkin.

00:13:15--> 00:13:31

And he began searching for the pumpkin selecting it from that from their plate. And the servant is realizing that you are the servant, come on, do something. So NSF Malik says, I began helping him select the pump pump.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

You said it.

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

But what is fascinating in this hadith is that lsmu Malik he says from that incident, I began to love it.

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

Because he loved it. And I love what he loves.

00:13:48--> 00:13:59

Your child might one day want to wear tight jeans, or wear a Barbie. I don't know or bring a boyfriend to the Barbie or

00:14:00--> 00:14:10

because that's what Barbie does. Because this is what the football player does. This is what the the wife of the football player wears these glasses whatever.

00:14:13--> 00:14:21

Can we reach actually a point where we love what our solemn loved? Okay, forget about pumpkin handle. I said it.

00:14:22--> 00:14:30

Why don't you do what Alfa Selim did not out of personal preference, but because this is the sauna.

00:14:32--> 00:14:50

This is a listener task. And this is doing the more extreme task. He's saying I'm doing everything what that association is doing. But I am also imitating him in that which he never prescribed to the mythos lm to do because that was not a son. This was a food preference that he did in private.

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

Okay, the final thing about love and this is just about the love of the Prophet.

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

So

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

I send them love could be a claim. I love you. I love you. I love you. You bring me red roses, and I love you, I love you.

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

But what could be a strong manifestation of love?

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

One day and you might again be aware of this hadith that is in the book of Buhari, Abdullah Malik now is now we come to battles, okay.

00:15:25--> 00:15:40

Now is in one of the battles in the Battle of better and he is alone in the battle and he wants some bodyguards or some helpers to come and stand next to him so he feels secure and safe. But suddenly he encounters two boys.

00:15:42--> 00:15:48

One stands on the right and one stands on the left and the one that stands on the right they say, uncle,

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

tell me, where is Abuja in

00:15:53--> 00:16:37

Abuja hell. Where is he? Is he among the mushriks? Can you point it Abuja. He then said, I will tell you when I see him and then the other boy said Uncle Uncle told me what is Abu Jamal, it seems that he was a celebrity this Abu Jamal. So they said Where is Abu Jihad? And He then began to be suspicious first of all to boys. Young, asking for average and then he asked one of the boys he said Why do you want Abu Jihad and look at this fascinating quotation. I'll tell you why it's fascinating not because of the quotation because it gives us another message. One of them says we're lying right or no fit will lie if I saw him I will not leave him alone will lie if I saw him I will not leave

00:16:37--> 00:16:37

him

00:16:39--> 00:16:53

because he used to harm and hurt and insult or Susannah you know what is fascinating in this Heidi abou Jen used to harm Rosa Selim wave in Mecca or Medina.

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

in Mecca, those children in the Battle of better are from Medina or Mecca.

00:17:01--> 00:17:10

The fact that they knew that Abuja Hill used to harm aerosol and tells you what tells you that they know sia

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

than Akira.

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

It tells you something. It tells you that those children knew the history of Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim before Prophet Muhammad wa sallam died.

00:17:24--> 00:17:45

They knew his autobiography during his presence, at least the Macan period, the last 10 years. And it was enough for them to know that someone somewhere somehow used to insult us or sell them, for them to decide even if they were under age, to look for him, and to bring him

00:17:46--> 00:18:01

and to seek revenge. If this was not love, then tell me what is love. If just hearing that someone has harmed, your prophet SAW Selim does not provoke or incite. Then tell me what is love?

00:18:04--> 00:18:11

How do we make our source lm beloved to our children today, and this is a problem.

00:18:12--> 00:18:23

Barbie, they can see Barbie Maisie, they can see Maisie they can see the Simpsons, but unfortunately, they can't see our sauce on them. So this is challenging.

00:18:25--> 00:18:30

Especially that stories are built on personalities and their trousers and their toys, etc, etc.

00:18:32--> 00:19:19

I think that there are two things that could be done. Number one, is that you represent to them the living Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I know that this is an extreme statement. But isn't this possible? What can what what I can feel a Sunni, Laurie are certain Hasina isn't Allah suswa could what a role model and an example for us to emulate. So you might not see the profits or sell them physically, but he will certainly see you as a father. And as a mother and I already spoke about ways of doing that of saying sallallahu wasallam, whenever his name is mentioned, whenever the Adhan is called, whenever, the sooner that there is a context for explaining the summit, etc, etc.

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

And the more you do that, without a condescending or a boring way, the more they will, but before that build the emotional block, don't don't miss our our process. Number two stories, this doing exactly what we are doing now, and they will appreciate this most from the age of three to six. This is the age where they will appreciate narrative and the Sahaba and then for how they used to exactly do that narrate the story of aerosol sell them to their children. Look at that smile. The son of Mohammed, the son of Saudi Arabia is the son of so the grandson of Saudi Arabia, aka

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

was a well known companion. His name is his nine. He used to say, Can Abbey Abbey, my father, who is the son of side,

00:20:10--> 00:20:40

you understand a companion, a son and a grandson, the grunts son is saying, My father used to teach us car. So you would presume who thought the father is his father, the companion. So the companion is teaching his son, and the son then grows and becomes a married man, and he teaches his grandson, what would you then imagine or anticipate from the grandson he will grow and narrate the same stories? Not from

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

the other side, but from the mouth and memory of the grandfather?

00:20:47--> 00:21:02

Do you see? This was exactly how the love was inherited. And this is what you should be thinking about. You have to do it from now like I used to do before marriage, read the books about marriage? No, no. read all the books about Sierra

00:21:03--> 00:21:16

and close the book and thing and say all law, how can I make this complex book accessible, intelligible, and more importantly, interesting and appealing to my three years old child.

00:21:17--> 00:21:31

I once brought my daughter and I said to her this story once because you know, they love animals, etc. And I said, once our son, Salah, Selim, went into the garden, and saw the camera, and the camera was crying,

00:21:32--> 00:21:49

and was weeping because the owner of that camera used to torture that camera. So I saw Selim put his hand on the head of that camera, and the camera stopped crying. You see her deal. Her name is my daughter. You see how the SOS lm is kind?

00:21:50--> 00:22:05

She never asks me that. Do camels cry? She's not. No, she, yes, camels cry? teddy bears speak. Yes, they do all that only when she grows up. She knows that this does not happen. But in that case, of course, it's a miracle.

00:22:07--> 00:22:38

Seize the moment, seize the time, to instill the love of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, in a way and in a mentality that they could appreciate and recognize. But the animal, the camel, the snake that spoke to us or sanlam the trunk that we've done, cried because it missed the body of our asylum. This can be fascinating stories for children. They can, they could, so I don't need Maisie or Simpsons or Bobby. I don't need that.

00:22:42--> 00:23:01

I should have began the building of Akita with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But again, they don't see Allah subhanaw taala they can't understand who's Allah subhanaw taala but they loved Allah, because they realized and recognized and interacted with the Messenger of Allah. And they certainly then we'll love

00:23:02--> 00:23:30

that God that sent this beloved man, this lovely man, this beautiful man. You understand? Do you see? You see how Arcadia is being built? No books, no tapes, no lectures, no conferences. You love the man. I love him because he's a decent human being. Oh, but he's not just a decent human being in America Bashara mythical, you have a he receives inspiration. Oh, okay. I love him then as a messenger fine.

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

But then you love that who sent him?

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

Because that who sent him is more merciful, is more kind is more nice. is more beautiful? You cannot imagine how Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:23:48--> 00:24:06

if you can imagine how our sauce Allah is. So if you love our sauce and then by default, you have to love Allah subhanaw taala Do you see? Do you understand brothers and sisters? Do you understand how he builds Aki that but before that building the emotional block.

00:24:07--> 00:24:17

And this is one way of building the man and the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the minds of children.

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

And you know this hadith.

00:24:20--> 00:24:50

Above some of the line he said he was once behind the prophet SAW Selim riding the Dabba be a camel or a mule or a donkey. And he says one day I was behind the prophet SAW Selim, and he said to me, oh, young man. I shall teach you some words. Look, he's making introduction that's going to be brief reminder. And then he says that for the life of that for the life that you do to jack it is ltfs Allah, be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you.

00:24:51--> 00:24:57

Be mindful of Allah and you will find them in front of you. If you ask, ask Allah and I must to stop.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

You know, what is the essence

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

sense of Akita.

00:25:01--> 00:25:30

The essence of aqeedah is to believe in no one as being powerful other than Allah subhanaw taala is the other saw Salam answered, the answer is yes. But also Selim never said if you ask come to me, I am your cousin or uncle, and I will make Doha No, he wants to break all human links. Yes, you love me? Yes, you adore me. But at the end of the day, I am only a human being, I am only a prophet. But when you ask ask Allah

00:25:31--> 00:25:55

when you want something, ask Allah isn't this brothers and sisters building Nikita. And what is fascinating, it's that is that he's building the Akita in a context of joy. He's riding a camel, you know, these horses, you put 50 pence and they do like this. Imagine you say that either of the children today, you you teach the love of Allah while your child is doing like this 50 p for 50 P.

00:25:57--> 00:26:36

Sometimes you put on pound and it doesn't return the change, but anyone for 50 P. And she says their child, he or she more and more and you put 50 P and ticciati them put 50 P, this is more than more important and more probably useful than paying 50 pounds for a book that tells you that Allah has got a hand that is not and come come five years old, he has a hand Allah has got no no, put him on a horse and tell him that either. That's what exactly I saw Selim was do and make it short and make it brief. And just imagine when he teaches him cutter predestination, it does not just the love of Allah. But predestination. He says know that if the oma were together, the home of Mohammed Salim is

00:26:36--> 00:26:54

very difficult to imagine that we gather. But imagine we gather one day, we gather to harm someone, he has a bomb, he has a knife, he has a nuclear weapon, we just gather for the sake of destroying one single child who is at the age of six.

00:26:57--> 00:27:13

We will not be able to harm him. unless Allah says so. And imagine we gather your mother and your father, and the governor and the MP and all those who love you and your daughter and your sister and your wife, and everyone we gather

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

to bring you

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

a gift.

00:27:20--> 00:27:36

The home of Mohammed in the millions imagine people coming to all the Muslims from China to bring your mobile and all the Muslims from Asia to kiss you probably I don't know what everyone is bringing a gift to you. And you are a six years old child, you can't run away from millions of Muslims.

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

They will not be able to do that if Allah does not say so.

00:27:42--> 00:27:53

Isn't this happy there? Isn't also Selim saying to the child basically, that no one on this earth including me, can help you without Allah subhanaw taala

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

if you said this to your child, that is what you are doing you are building a man and

00:27:59--> 00:28:13

I will end it here and maybe we spent three or four minutes on the Quran, part of building darky the analysis Ellen dealt with the children and made them read Quran etc. But I will give you a story

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

by way of ending this session

00:28:19--> 00:28:40

how do we make our children love Allah subhanho wa Taala that I have looked into the internet in two ways etc. And some internet says For example, the picture of Aqaba put it in his bedroom or her bedroom and this is the house of Allah and inshallah if you are good enough, we will go one day there and we will make the laugh Allah Subhana Allah And

00:28:42--> 00:28:47

do you know brothers and sisters and sorry again to speak about my experience? I don't like no other experiences.

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

My daughter loves bouncy castle.

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

So I say to her in sha Allah in general, there will be lots of bouncy castles.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

You know why? You know why I'm not kidding her.

00:29:04--> 00:29:11

Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in general, you will have Machito you will have whatever you want.

00:29:12--> 00:29:33

will lie. If you like burgers, you can ask for it. If you like I don't know what so if she likes bouncy castles payment even if we if she's 60 years old mother in Sharla maybe she was wants to retain our child once the bouncy castle Why not? So she says bouncy castles I say yes and it's free. Don't have to.

00:29:35--> 00:29:44

She doesn't care about that. But anyway. And she hates sleeping like all children. And I say to her in general there is no sleep really there is no sleeping. Yes.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

And who knows maybe there is no brushing of the teeth.

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

And there is no bath because we will not sweat

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

and if she became a little bit older I might say that I know school.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

You can link her with Jenna.

00:30:04--> 00:30:44

But this is on this funny side, bouncy castle, etc. But on the practical side, this is if you don't lie, this is if you are kind. So you begin to build this emotion as she begins to look forward to gender, like you look forward to the sale, for example, in the summer or in the winter. And another way is stories. And I have a story here to tell that might be appropriate to a child between the age of three and six. And to be honest, I'm not here to tell you stories because you might go to sleep. But what I want what I wanted to say is to try to show you that I understand your concerns. And I cannot be speaking just about the past, and I need to make things relevant and accessible to you

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

today in the modern life and the contemporary challenges, etc. So I came up with a story

00:30:50--> 00:31:00

that could be narrated to children from the age of three to six. The story says that Nether Nether is a girl that was sitting one day with her

00:31:02--> 00:31:02

mother

00:31:03--> 00:31:06

and her young sister Messner.

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

And then I was watching her mother change nappies of Basma.

00:31:13--> 00:31:36

And suddenly Basma became ill, and the mother tried to do all what she could to heal her. But it didn't work. And she went straight away to the hospital. But she asked Nether to take care of Bessemer while she was away, and the father was not in an entire house, there was only Bessemer and Nether.

00:31:38--> 00:31:46

And suddenly, this is the twist in the story. Now, suddenly, while she was alone with Basma, the light went off.

00:31:47--> 00:31:49

And they were in the dark.

00:31:50--> 00:31:59

And Basma as a young girl started crying, and neither was terrified, like a husband and a saint in the dark, and they are alone.

00:32:00--> 00:32:18

But neither remember the many narratives and the many stories and the many reminders that tomato used to say to her, that whatever you do, wherever you are, you are not alone in the night, and in the daytime in the winter, or in the summer. Allah is always with you watching over you.

00:32:20--> 00:32:34

So she began to come down a little bit, she realized that she's not alone. And what her mother said to her is that your Lord is stronger than all of us like I saw Selim saying to us this on the on the camel, saying that

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

if the entire nation oma gathers to harm you they will not be able to harm you.

00:32:41--> 00:32:55

So another come down a little bit. And what she did is that she went straight away and opened the curtain. And straight away when she opened the curtain, the light from the moon came and shed some light into the darkroom.

00:32:56--> 00:33:10

And straight away another went to Bessemer and said, You see Basma Stop crying. This is the moon. It's better than the electricity. It is soft, it is nice, it is quiet, it doesn't come.

00:33:12--> 00:33:31

And this is created by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to show us the way and to get rid of the darkness. And she began to tell her stories about the moon and the time passed. And the mother came and Basma kept quiet stopped crying, of course, because Natalie started to pump to pamper her

00:33:32--> 00:33:35

pumpkin anyway to pamper her and

00:33:37--> 00:34:07

and she kept quiet and the mother came she was delighted to see Basma and she was more delighted to see what neither have done. And out of thanking Nether, the mother said to her Sharla tomorrow, we will go to the library, and I'll buy you a book about the moon and inshallah I will also teach you the surah in the Quran and Karim which is Surah 54 that is called l comma, the moon, act Allah Batista. When Shaka, comma.

00:34:09--> 00:34:32

Now, it's a simple story. But if anything, it shows that children can be in control that children can remember at the right time and react accordingly. And the children can believe from the bottom of their heart, that the father and the mother are weaker, and a lost planet is stronger, and that the light of the moon is better than the electricity.

00:34:33--> 00:34:59

My daughter again, by way of telling the story to you, I actually narrated the story to her every day she comes from the nursery at half past one they tell her stories, and I tell her what stories Did you and you know, teddy bears etc. But on the way bringing her from school I told that his story of nada investment. And then just to test, I said to her, is this story better or the story of Mrs. Foster? She said no, I think this story of nada is better. So I'm saying

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

That if we say to our children, these stories, and you can invent other stories, I think inshallah aqidah. The second block could be built in the character of children.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

I want to now speak about the Quran.

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

And I want to say something that

00:35:18--> 00:35:21

I'm not sure if you thought about it before like that.

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

Today, our youngsters go to the madrasa

00:35:29--> 00:35:32

go to the mosque, to learn,

00:35:34--> 00:35:44

and to learn it in a language that they don't understand. And usually the children are taught or do first and then Arabic. And they will not understand Arabic.

00:35:45--> 00:35:58

A lot of them become half years. And then some of them end up as members of gangs, gangsters, or drug addicts or because the halves or the learning was not constructive was not, it was abrupt.

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

And there is always a distance between us and the Quran. And this distance is created by or through or by many, many reasons.

00:36:12--> 00:36:16

I want to say to you that the companions

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

did not perceive

00:36:22--> 00:36:30

that there is a gap between them and the Quran, because they played a central role in the Quranic theme.

00:36:32--> 00:37:00

They were the heroes of the narrative. If Allah subhanho wa Taala talks to you about better, you have to visualize better, but they don't because they were there. They were embedded. They were in a hot thing with in all the verses that were revealed in response to issues, and I'll give you an example. Me and you, we read other sir Waterworld

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

and Joe allama, who is this person,

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

Abdullah, even make

00:37:11--> 00:37:23

the most of our salsa lesson. He was a blind man. And he was the advent of rssl one day he went and also Salam was busy with the elites of kurush and he was

00:37:25--> 00:37:51

precisely precessing wanting to ask a question. And also sanlam looked at his face and in an unpleasant way. And Allah subhanaw taala reproached him and corrected him, that he should give attention to the poor and the less prosperous because those are the people that are worthy of admonition and sermons and reminders.

00:37:52--> 00:38:08

Me and you, we have to go through being careful to understand all this as Robin newzoo reasons of Revelation. But the children of the prophet SAW Selim did not need that, because every time they go to the mosque, they see Abdullah and McTell.

00:38:10--> 00:38:31

Brothers and sisters, imagine you go to the mosque, and then is being called. And after that, then 510 minutes after that, then the person who made the ad and does a comma, and then he stands behind the prophet SAW Selim, and you might stand next to him next to the person who did a comma, or, and the Imam says,

00:38:34--> 00:38:38

and you know, that this person is praying next to you.

00:38:40--> 00:38:44

What sort of an impact does the verses then have on you?

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

When you scratch your head during the Salah? Will your mobile go and play downloadable tones? And you have to put your hand in your pocket to switch it off? Because you forgot to do so before going to the mosque?

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

Will you hit your

00:39:05--> 00:39:59

jacket to check if the car keys are inside or that your buttons are closed? Well, you will not do any of that. Because the one that is the theme of that verse is praying next to you. He knows that and you know that. What I want to say is that the Sahaba lived the Koran. They did not read the Quran, they did not memorize the Quran. They were the Quran. They were inside this screen of the TV of the Quranic TV. They were the players and the makers of the verses. They inheritor. Not only did he live the Quran, but the Quran mentioned his name. You and me, we worship Allah through mentioning the name of Zane and for every letter. For every letter in his name, we get 10

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

words what more of an honor? Would Zaid?

00:40:05--> 00:40:48

Imagine Zaid reading the surah. Do you think that he will only read it? Cold blooded? Don't you think that he will be honored if he memorized the verse surah till mozarella for example, this woman that came complaining to our salsa sanlam the verse that says, Look at semi aloe Cola, let it to JD loca, fi Neff, sia. Indeed Allah has heard the statement of her that disputes with you concerning her husband and complains to Allah and Allah. Here's the argument between you both, Verily Allah is all here and all seer, the Akito this woman called Colette been

00:40:50--> 00:40:59

there believe that she has in Allah that in Mullah Semyon bossier isn't the same belief, as you have of Allah.

00:41:00--> 00:41:14

The belief of her is far more stronger, because Allah states that he heard her very complain. She was part and parcel of Allah has verses to build and educate you arcada wise,

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

Allah is old seer, and Allah is all here. And the evidence for that is that you heard fallible or infallible,

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

that is different than me telling you, Allah has an ear, that is not like you're

00:41:32--> 00:41:52

far more different. And the impact is different. Because the impact is in your mind. The impact in the case of cola is in her heart. Because it was these verses that wrote her husband that separated her, brought him home.

00:41:53--> 00:42:10

Because Allah subhanaw taala asked him to fast or to give charity, etc, and brought him home. Do you know why? Allah wanted to bring him home, because there were children in between Hola, and else masama and when he did not have enough money

00:42:12--> 00:42:56

to feed 16 skins, you know, who helped him? Your Beloved, my beloved, and his, his his beloved, are so seldom Won't you love also asylum or else or Oh, Hola, when he feeds 60 people out of the dates that he gave these children to protect your children from running into the street or going to school and saying My father is or my mother are divorced. Think about that. I'm just trying to dramatize how they lived. The Quran the Quran for them was not just a book put on the shelf, or out of blessing or making Nicolas or when you are ill or dead or sariah seen when someone is dead? No, no, no. The lived that.

00:42:58--> 00:43:09

And then it becomes then easy, extremely easy to understand how our SOS lm built their aqidah through the gate of the Quran, because they did not know any other gate.

00:43:11--> 00:43:43

Today, I have to get you out of the gate of materialism, secularism ignorance, ism, ism ism and say, Look over there. This is the gate, a language that you don't understand. an Imam that doesn't teach properly. This is the gate go to it. When you go to it. This is the problem. So they learn the Quran. They live the Quran, they love the Quran. And you know what was also fascinating is that the one who told them the Quran was the one that they loved.

00:43:44--> 00:43:46

The one that they adore,

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

the one that heard it directly from the mouth of an angel.

00:43:52--> 00:44:33

You know, the hadith of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu says whoever wants to hear the Quran as if it was revealed. Let him hear it from the mouth of Eben Ahmed, who is even on my blindness route one of the companions he had the melodious voice extremely beautiful voice I think if we read Quran today, tapes and audio and CDs internet everything will sell these tapes. Abdullah Massoud and Abu Salah Shari, those were half a scar is what if a child did not hear it from the mouth of Abdullah muscle but hear directly from the mouth of rasa Salah Amanda is here and also Salim is here

00:44:35--> 00:44:40

because the one that is on the top of both of them is debris.

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

So also Salim is closer to gibreel. And the child is in between closer towards asylum than Abdullah nandus or Abdullah Amazon. It's a fascinating experience. So I lived the theme and I heard it from someone who I adore and love

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

Thirdly, I understand it. It's my language. I know it. I don't need even caffeine. I don't need use of it. I don't need a translation. I know it and I understand it.

00:45:13--> 00:45:33

But as far as our children are concerned, it's interesting to note that the small sutras in the Quran are easy to learn colada NES, mannequin NES era in NES short and with it is very easy for the child to pronounce allowance to make it easy for your children. cannolo allow some of

00:45:34--> 00:45:58

that for the child to memorize. So an important advice is that children memorize the Quran but I don't think I'm saying anything especially because we have lots of houses. But the most important thing is for the children to understand. And look at this hadith where you find it in the book of Abuja, Allah most needy in the book of Abuja, Allah

00:46:00--> 00:46:05

narrated by Hasson the son of Musab the son of Saudi Arabia across

00:46:07--> 00:46:30

South America as a companion. Musab is the son of the companion Hassan is the son of Mossad. You see this this is fascinating link. But to me, what is more important than the chain of donation is that values are being inherited or being carried forward. The Father is not waiting for the Imam to teach his son No, I'm going to teach my son. Why? Because I know best Why? Because my father is a companion

00:46:33--> 00:47:01

call to the Abbey, again, like the previous Hadees that I'm narrated, hasn't saying I asked Abby masa has an A saying I asked my father Musab who is the son of Saudi Arabia cast who is not a companion. So his father is not a company. His father is a Tabby because he saw a companion I saw his father. Imagine Subhanallah the relationship between someone who becomes a Cadbury this honorable title because he saw him his father.

00:47:03--> 00:47:09

Are you with me? Seeing your father is honorable because that gives you a title over today.

00:47:10--> 00:47:14

So he says call to the epi Yeah, better. I said to my father, oh my father.

00:47:15--> 00:47:27

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in surah, my own which is 107 which is called the small kindness. He says soon to those who performed the Salah,

00:47:28--> 00:47:56

those who are unmindful or an attentive or neglectful foil in normal saline elvina man Salatin and look at the question of them, boy, he says, Allah says woe to those who when they pray, they are neglectful, who Oh my father isn't sometimes neglectful. When he prays, he said, No, my son, that is not what Allah meant. Who told you this? Even Cathy, know, my father, I know told your father, the prophet SAW Salah.

00:47:58--> 00:48:01

You understand this link? He said, No.

00:48:03--> 00:48:21

It means woe to those who delay their Salah from their stated fixed times. Now I got this from a recent translation. But the Quran does not say that he translated the meaning based on that Hadith. So Alhamdulillah, you've read the meaning, but that is not the lit This is the interpretation.

00:48:22--> 00:48:44

The Sahabi understood the interpretation, even if the literal meaning says otherwise, do you see the distance is not far away from them, and the text? Now I asked you, when has a knows the meaning now the true meaning of this verse? Will he ever delay his prayer? beyond its stated fixed time?

00:48:46--> 00:49:32

Of course not. Now we have children who don't pray at all. Now, I tell you, if every son in London, Birmingham, Leeds, wherever had a father that tells him that according to the Koran, bombing innocent people, bombing civilians, according to the saw Selim, who said this and this and that, and I was there when the Quran was revealed, or it was there, this he says this and the verse was that, will the child grow up as a bomber? all what I want to say is that they understood the Quran, and the understanding was not academic. It was natural, it was part and parcel of their everyday life. And I want to leave you with this final Hadith to end this session on the building of the item of

00:49:32--> 00:49:34

the link of the Quran.

00:49:36--> 00:49:47

Just to show you the impact and the effect to know that these people this these children are human beings, they have feelings, they cry, and they laugh, and they get influenced and affected by what they hear and listen and see.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

this hadith is narrated in the book of unhackme in mustard rock, and Mr. macdaddy said that this is a sound Hadith even Ibis narrates by saying when Allah subhana wa

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Allah revealed on his prophets

00:50:03--> 00:50:33

of Allah Dena amanu, who amphastar como la coonara akuto nasaan ijarah la, la La, La La, la, la Santa La Mamma, Mia Maroon. O you who believe, walled off from yourselves and your families a fire, try to get rid and protect yourself from this fire. And look how Allah subhanaw taala now is explaining and telling you this fire, whose fuel is men and stones,

00:50:35--> 00:50:40

no gasoline or no like gasoline or human bodies, and students

00:50:42--> 00:50:51

over which are angels, stern and severe who this way not the commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded.

00:50:52--> 00:51:16

And then at best is when this verse was revealed a young boy heard it, and he fainted. Do you know what fainting means? It means that he was so influenced by this verse that he did not need an interpreter to explain to him the meaning of that verse. He didn't need a translator. The verse hit him heart, and made him lose conscious

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

and also a solemn

00:51:20--> 00:51:26

when he read it, he fainted in front of him for the interview, so seldom Yahoo. Allah

00:51:27--> 00:51:39

also seldom put his hand on his heart. And when he saw that his heart is still beating, he said, Oh young boy, c'est la ilaha illAllah. And the boy

00:51:40--> 00:51:55

started to become conscious and said, La ilaha illa Allah and also Salim Bashara who bilgin he said in sha Allah, you are going to gender. The Sahaba got jealous, and said you're a Salalah? Are you telling him that in front of us?

00:51:56--> 00:52:03

What are we talking about? Omar is here brother off man Come Come, young boy is going to gender.

00:52:04--> 00:52:42

I never saw seldom says to them, haven't you heard Allah subhanaw taala says the early kelemen half economy or half lie. This is for him who fears standing before me and also fears my threat. Two points one, the boy fainted. A because of the impact and power of the verse, but be because it was narrated by the lips. You remember the lips now? Can you imagine the lips. It was narrated and read by the lips of Susana Selim, which he adored and love.

00:52:44--> 00:53:01

And number two, do you see how the source lm links the vs together? This is a verse from a surah. And then when they became surprised, he showed them an evidence from another surah what are the sources lm is doing is making the CIF is giving them a reading.

00:53:02--> 00:53:18

This is exactly what I'm telling you. They have been educated by the professor who is also haselden. Now they have a blue done way of looking at things, a coherent way of looking at things and a way of linking verses together, even if they are not in the same surah

00:53:19--> 00:53:28

imagine this boy now conscious again. But now with a good news that he is going to gender. Imagine he goes and tells his friends

00:53:30--> 00:54:10

what will be the feeling? Imagine the Sahaba who got jealous will go home and tell their wives and tell their children and say, oh my son, I wish one day that he will faint. Maybe I'll also sell them we'll say inshallah we'll go to gender. Do you see? You see how the sentiments uplift uplifting the values of the society? how our society is building expect high expectations. It's not that if you pray to rock and shala you're safe man, know that you have to faint out of this impact out of this interaction between you and the verse. a cornucopia of stuff at all You're looking for stuff in order for
