a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by the name of Sandman and father of Sierra the Allah one,
in a very lengthy narration describes his journey to meeting Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The essence of his journey is that the world was full of darkness and there was no beacon of light that remained for him to attach to
until one of his teachers told him that in Medina would, would be where the final prophet would arrive.
So he arrived in Madina Munawwara through a very gruesome and difficult
until he was able to set his eyes on the prophets that Allahu Allah He was selling
and everything before that was just history.
The story of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Ana he was send them
people who were sincere, eager
for trying to make sense out of a very complicated difficult world.
And Allah subhanahu wa Tada bless them with the honor of crossing paths with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, seeing him being with him, learning from him, transformed and changed their lives.
The story of Islam is one of the importance of Revelation,
that throughout history, you see where revelation found its place in the hearts of people in communities, they became leaders. And wherever revelation left people, only so long, you can continue to push forward before you realize that you are untethered. And this small canoe that you're in stands no chance against the waves of the ocean, they will surely swallow you.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in vada Hara, distancing himself from the people of Makkah because of the excess sugar that was occurring there. And while he's in that moment, just reflecting and connecting with Allah subhanahu wa taala say the knowledge of Elijah he shows up and one of the greatest moments to possibly occur and the existence of this earth occurred.
The crown of Prophethood was granted one last time to a human being, and not to any human being to the best of all, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
An era that was referred to as the period of ignorance was about to leap forward, not slowly and gradually, but a big jump was about to occur. Hydroquinone attorney, the best of generations was about to come into existence. And in this moment when Davidian on a cinema proaches Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he offers him this revelation, the opening part of this revelation, the beginning of the Quran, starts with telling the Ummah and the Prophet of Allah and mankind till the end of times, if Clara Bismillah Becca Levy Haluk. We commonly refer to the first revelation by saying the first verse was it Torah. That wasn't the first verse that was the first word. The verse
continues, if Bismillah Bica the Haluk we are a nation we are a people that takes pride in knowing that education and learning is at the center of our deen anytime something sways away from that education from that knowledge, it puts itself at great risk. Today we see our Muslim community, we look at our own families. And there is no doubt at all that raising a family in the west where we are sitting in a big pool of all sorts of ideas. Confusion is everywhere. What is true what is not true? I think one of the biggest challenges that we have in today's world and something that fears me to my core is truth no longer exists. What is a reality? Everything is based off of subjective
ideas that what I view to be true is this and what you view to be true is that a nation that is divided into political ideology no longer has the ability to identify what are realities. The Quran tells us what our realities are. times will change, people will change, the weather will change, the world will change. But these realities are unshakable. Therefore, when you study data,
the subject of understanding the essence of our belief, there are different terms that are used to refer to statements that we believe in their veracity and their truthfulness, and the most definitive term that we use in Al Qaeda, to refer to a point that is absolutely true and there is no doubt in it at all is the word Huck. Allahu Hacohen when nohoch When while Jana to Hacohen, WA salatu Hacohen. Well, Misa and Ohakune, that these things are realities, that your agenda is a reality, your fire of hell is a reality you standing in front of Allah is a reality. This is not a dream. This is not something made up. Today. You're trying to figure out what to do in this path
that you're walking on. But remember, the destination is certain and that is your grave.
Either you will leave first or someone will beat you to it.
Either you're carrying someone or someone is carrying you. The question is what did you do on this path? While you have the opportunity to walk on it? The Quran prepares us for that. This is what Revelation does. It tells us of people who came before to warn us of people who messed up and those who did great. All the people who did amazing in the Quran.
On who are referenced in praise in the Quran, their summary of the story is they were tested by Allah, and they stood firm and strong. That was a summary of their story that they got confused and there was wealth thrown at them and family was thrown at them and problems came at them. But the men and women who now stand in the hall of fame of the Quran are people who did not waver and stood strong like pillars that they committed to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Whether it was in the battlefield, they were remembered, or if they were traveling with the prophets that Allahu Allah He was said them, they were remembered, because the people who allow their hearts to connect to Allah
subhanho wa Taala are worth being remembered.
As for everyone else, they seem to just waver away and fizzle away. Then the second part of the Quran tells us about what comes ahead. And what comes ahead is the Day of Judgment, where every human being is accountable for what they do in this present right now. Allah subhanahu without that tells us now you have due to severe to one aka be rotten, Allah Azza. So every day in my life when I wake up, and I'm going through my routine, and I go to work, and I'm at school, and I'm driving, and I'm picking up the kids and dropping them off, I have to constantly make decisions. And each of those things that I do and each decision that I make has an impact in this moment right now. But as
a Muslim, I believe there is a greater impact we all believe that there is a greater impact that we will see in the hereafter. The true value of a decision isn't only based off of what it gives you today.
In reality, it's based off of what it gives you in your eternal life. What happens when you stand in front of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Sometimes it's just the smallest moments in this world where a person becomes vulnerable and insincere, least expected moments and there may be in front of Allah and the day of judgment in Allah subhanho wa Taala pardons them for that moment. We learned this from the Prophet sallallahu ala he was in his teachings. It says if Allah subhanahu wa taala is waiting for us to give him one moment of our life of just sincerity, undistracted, pure love,
that I'm willing to do something yet Allah for you. You created me for you. Let me at least give you a moment of my life where it's only about you. The human body has very well known regarding the lady who gave water to the dog. She had lived an immoral life but in that moment, she did something sincere where it wasn't about her it wasn't about showing it wasn't about what people would see it was about what she was doing right there right then for Allah subhanahu wa Tada
you're gonna have to the button Erickson an incident that even 100 or less Kalani also narrates in his commentary on Suhail body regarding the famous author of the Sunnah of Imam Abu Dawood, so the Imam Asha Sistani Rahim Allahu taala, that this man by the way, giant contemporary of Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah. He is a student of Imam Muhammad bin humble, a man whose knowledge of Hadith was unrivaled. He had so many a hadith memorized, arguably he had more narrations compiled and memorize, even then Imam Bukhari Rahmatullahi Ali, this isn't a comparison. I'm trying to establish this person status such a great scholar, prolific writer, the compiler of the student IP though, which is
being read till today, and Allah knows how long it will be read for,
if not often better narrates this incident that once I would, I would the city standing was on a ship and he was traveling, and they were passing by a shore and there was a person on the shore Who sneezed. And he said, Al Hamdulillah. Now as Muslims, we know when someone sneezes, and says on hamdulillah it has it has a responsibility for you to reply by saying it hummock Allah, he was an old man and didn't have the ability to say it loud enough for that person to hear him. So he said to the person on the ship, that I would like to rent one of these small boats to go to that island. And he went to the island. And he went to that person and said, you had a hammock, Allah and came back
to his ship. His companions say in that moment, we heard a voice from the unseen, saying, ich thaw a Buddha who the agenda be Ashura.
That Buddha will just purchase his Jana for 10 Dinho.
A man who compiled a hadith, not just one Hadith collections,
it boils down to these moments, and this isn't a verdict of his past in the world. It's anything it's a bush, right? It's a glad tidy, and it's a lesson for us all that every day we have opportunities to earn our agenda, moments of sincerity. Some of us we believe that our opportunity to shine as Muslims is while we're in the masjid, which is amazing. But you have to realize that what kind of Islam and Iman you have in your heart shines when you walk out of the walls of the masjid who you are
In your life, whether you have found peace with yourself and your iman to be one or whether they will continue to be divided and exist in parallel lives, that are in the masjid, you are one person in front of the Quran, you are one person in Mecca and Medina, you are one person. But when you go back to your family, a very different human being a very different story to tell. How does this Islam reach a person's heart? Well, that comes through interacting with Revelation, if caught up Bismillah Haluk. Reading itself and gathering information isn't enough for your salvation because you must know that there are people who have walked on this earth before us who had a massive amount
of knowledge yet they were misguided. Because information is not the same as knowledge as Muslims, we view knowledge to be transformative, that it brings change in You malerkotla Waka hydro Nima cathedra, Allah, that it is literal but meaningful. It brings change in you and allows you to be a better person that when you walk away from a health spa, and you go home, your family members see you smile.
Your child notices compassion. Your wife feels love. Your father and mother feel respect. The people that work notice that you are a kinder person because every time you interact with your deen and you learn, you transform to be a better person. The world we live in today has become a frenzy of just gathering information that go online and listen to a snippet here and read a tweet there and gather a little post from social media here. And we assume that all these things together bring change in order for knowledge which is a raw ingredient to bring change in you. It must be paired with a meaningful process. The first part of this process is specifically when you interact with revelation
that you will need to humble yourself. Therefore the verse reads If cut up Bismillah beacon loving, teaching us to be humble because you are reading Revelation that was sent by the One who created you halacha inside I mean, Allah.
Allah Karim Allah the Allah mobile Kalam and Allah ml in Santa Malam yada. He taught you what you do not know when a person sits in front of revelation with arrogance, and they've made their mind up and no matter how much of the Quran or Hadith you quote to them, they are unwilling to budge because in their minds they are gods they are the revealers they are the prophets and they are the ones that will implement Revelation, there is a big problem waiting ahead for them. Allah subhanahu wa Tada also tells us of such people in the Quran, read the stories of phenomenal baboon, who found it very difficult to bow down in front of revelation Bismillah, Baek Allah, the HELOC and remember that all
knowledge that we have in this world is sent by Allah subhanahu wa Tada. All knowledge. This Western claim that there is secular knowledge and religious knowledge that science and math are secular, they have nothing to do with God or religion. So what happens in biology, chemistry and physics is completely disconnected from God is very problematic. This is a notion that we Muslims openly reject because the Quran tells us, la la Mulana Illa Allah Tana, that all others that we have is divine, and given by Allah subhanho wa taala. What happens between two elements when they bond is just a manifestation of a means that Allah subhanahu Allah has adopted for a reality that was predetermined
to come into existence. This is the Muslim belief of science. We view math as a tool, we view the subjects that we study as a tool. So on one side, a person that has a system of education that is void of the mentioned and existence of Allah subhanahu wa taala doesn't find Allah, one person studies and goes to med school. And there is no mention of Allah subhanahu wa Donna in their mind, heart or what they see in study. So for them at the end of it, it's an exercise of gaining knowledge and building a career. And there's another person who goes to that same procedure, but every moment they're interacting with this patient in front of them or just cadaver that they're practicing on.
They see the cooter of Allah subhanaw taala that how was My Allah how amazing and his how amazing is he? And this is what the Quran invites us to. The Quran is calling us to wake up from this zombie like state of constant, perpetual stagnation, where we can't see beyond what our physical eyes lock onto. And the Quran is telling us to learn to look with our hearts and our mind. The home Kluber life gonna be her welcome unit law you still want to be her? Well, I then realized my wanna be her that these limbs cannot be used individually. The hand does its part the AI does its part. But if the hand I heart and our heart and intellect don't work together, you won't have in front of you
what's really happening? In order for you to understand and gain true Iraq of what's going on in front of you. You must gather all your limbs together your heart
mine included and try to understand what's going on here. Sort of sort of loss of Allahu Ana he was sent him his life. Let's take a page from there. He walks through the world. And for everything he has a vicar that accompanies that, telling us that in that moment, whether he's climbing a mountain, descending in the market, entering his home, exiting, traveling, eating, relieving himself that before and after all of these things, he is interacting with lots of Haida Hautala, that he's been able, he's able to see the world with his heart and with his eyes, because there are some people, their realities are comparable to that of a parent. But what you throw at it, it regurgitates it
right back at you. Right, the parent isn't able to intellectually engaged with the content that it has. There's no deeper dimension to it's what it does what it says. But on the other hand, you have bees that take filth and turn it into the most sweet thing that the human being can taste. This is where the engagement of the heart comes into the place comes into place. And this is what the Quran is calling us towards, towards a place of difficulty and to double that you're reflecting. You're thinking, what's the purpose of my life? What am I doing here? How did I end up in this land? How do I have all this wealth? What am I doing with this intellect was all of this for me to just build my
personal mini mansion and Empire so that when I stand in front of Allah on the Day of Judgment, Allah says to me, Yaqoob, tell me what did you do with your life and you say, Hola, I nailed it. 4000 square foot home, four car, garage, Mercedes and each one. Imagine the disappointment in that moment, that I gave you a heart with the ability to love Allah more valuable than anything the world can offer. And you came back with his silly Lego like toys. Did you not understand what his heart was actually for?
That every time when you do such that in front of Allah, there's an opportunity there for you to earn your agenda.
Every time you stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and say Allahu Akbar, you are saying something that has the weight to shake the earth and the heavens. Only if you connect your mind and heart to that word that you're saying, change will occur. So people ask, why is it that my salon doesn't bring change in me? Well, that's because you're not allowing it to enter into your heart.
The moment you make yourself vulnerable, and you open it up. In reality, the essence of Salah can be understood through the simple truth, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is our rub and we are a bad, we are servants of Allah.
The world that we live in our egos push us to believe that we are Gods in our world, unquestionable and accountable, we do what we want, and no one can push me to do anything. Salah is a reminder that that's not true. You are accountable, and you are a servant, you have a responsibility of obedience, and that is to your Allah. And therefore we start our Salah everyday by saying Allahu Akbar admitting to this truth, that I belong to Allah.
And then the journey starts at hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen that I belong to Allah as does everything in this world, or Rama and Rahim but not a relationship that's built off of oppression because people think of the relationship of a master and serve servant to be an oppressive one.
A Rahmani Raheem. My master is different. Miley Kiyomi Dean yakka now by the way, you're gonna stay in your Allah. I've just come from a messy life and I'm about to go back to one after I say my Salam. So my plea to you is in a Serato stalking guide this heart, take it by its forelock. against its own will push away shaytaan grant me dominance over my knifes allow this heart to love you and be in your obedience. Every Heart of the believer desires to love Allah and that's why you'll see that when someone talks about loving Allah, tears swell into our eyes. This is no coincidence. The reason why we become so still when someone talks about loving Allah is because the fitrah
that soul that lies at the center of your existence begins to wake up.
We have put it to sleep and in those moments it starts to wake up
and it yearns to fulfill the purpose it was created for.
And that's for Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why it was created. Allah be decree law he taught my envelope.
The heart will always want Allah it'll always desire Allah. No matter how much you distracted
someone asked him when we need Aisha Radi Allahu Allah. It beautiful question.
It's one of my favorite narrations
He asked her, actually Oman Romanian Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu asked the prophets that Allah Islam that's more correct. When we want we need Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu asked the Prophet said Allah, why do you have a beautiful question? She said her messenger of ALLAH, why do you pray?
This is a phenomenal question. Because the answer to this gives us the perspective that we need for the rest of our lives, to continue to pray and build ourselves spiritually.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responds back by saying, I'm gonna have
gratitude, I'm thankful to Allah. So when I take out time from my day, and I go to the site of my store, and I pray salah, or when I pull over at the airport, and I pray my salah, or I step aside from the table, when food is being served at a restaurant, and I pray my salah, or I'm at home, and I pull over to the corner, or come to the messenger, pray salah. In that moment, I'm just saying to Allah, thank you. Thank you for everything. I'm grateful that you gave me the ability to be the person that I am. A work in progress, but more than anything, I'm grateful that you bless his heart with iman. Because there are people who will live or die, live and die on this earth. And they won't
have one moment of love with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. They won't get a chance to even say Allah's name with love once and here you and I are with the freedom opportunity, ability
to worship Allah as much as we want to love him whenever we want.
This knowledge that we speak of
remember, Imam Abu Hamid Al Ghazali he says, under while commenting on the statement of the prophets of Allah, Allah He was vulnerable your enemy for evil to know Allah, Allah muslim that seeking knowledge that is obligatory upon every believer, while commenting on that Imam Muhammad Al Ghazali says, this knowledge that is obligatory upon every Muslim is reasonable Muhammad, Abdullah Abdullah, don't be here. It's the knowledge of knowing how to interact with your Lord.
What's your relationship with Allah? How are you going to do this?
This can change with a change in perspective.
You can choose to have Allah subhanahu wa Tada presents with you for the rest of your life.
If you're willing to commit to be in his remembrance, that's where change comes. By constantly thinking and being being reflective over the favours of Allah subhanahu wa Tada for
not being in denial and rejection. Understanding that we live in a world specifically the Western world that is hyper materialistic, and a cloak of distractions have been casted over us. So we are lost within our TVs, within our sphere, you know, series and shows in our video games, our vacations and our trips.
Those things have a place in our life, a very valuable one. Right where you just need to relax sometimes and unplug from the busy life so you go to those things. But that's not why we were created. The reason why you and I were created
was to worship Allah and to build a meaningful relationship with him.
Find me a parent who has taught their child to love Allah and I will point out a future wali of Allah subhana wa Tada. Parents commonly boast about my child knows so many ideas out memorized. Great thing by the way, having your children memorize the Quran from young age phenomenal idea. Or they've memorized so many legal rulings of the deen or look at the way my child dresses. But the thing is that all of these things they come into play. Once the heart of the human being is instigated that when your child comes home and says Dad, I'm struggling with bad influence. Your lesson isn't just walk away from those friends or go complain to your principal, your lesson is
better. You're gonna have to figure out life and then you can talk about the solutions. But at the center of it all is you must remember that your Allah is with you. Because all solutions in the world will fail unless you take accountability of your own relationship.
May Allah subhanahu wa taala give us Sophia, he inspire us and open our hearts. May he guide us give light in these dark paths in this world that we live in. May Allah subhanahu wa taala preserve human in our blood and in the blood of our children, and in our generations until the end of times. Maybe our hearts be endowed and bestowed with the honor of Revelation. May we be people who memorize the Quran, read the Quran, understand the Quran and connect ourselves to the legacy of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa Salam wa sallahu wa ala and I said I'm Hamid
