00:00:16--> 00:00:20

Well, I didn't have enough beer on my back for

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

loans and

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

there are eight of them are Xiaomi mocha some young

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

What did

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

you international?

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

Some of

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

the greatest mission of the life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

wants to fulfill the role of a messenger

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

and the role of a messenger is to deliver a message.

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had many great miracles in his life.

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

However, the greatest miracle of the prophets of Allah

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

was none other than go.

00:01:14--> 00:01:41

For it is there for it is a miracle that remain even after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read this world. Until today, if we wish to understand who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually once and for us to understand who our Lord Allah subhana wa tada is. The only way to this, you know, to this goal is to read and understand the Quran.

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

The Companions that came to it shall have the ultimate on occasion.

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

And they asked her describe to us the character of the Prophet Muhammad said a lot of money and

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

she replied back by saying the character of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was

00:02:03--> 00:02:42

now this Quran is the word of Allah subhana wa tada and the Prophet said a lot of it was said Ahmad explaining the greatness of the word of Allah subhana wa tada he says, that the excellence of the Koran, the excellence of on over all other books, is like the excellence of the speech of Allah over all the speech of mankind. If you were to create, compare the speech of Allah subhana wa tada my speech for your speech, what kind of comparison would that be? imagined the greatness of the icon and its rank in comparison to all other books in the world.

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

The problem is that a lot of it was

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

hidden light in the hearts of people when

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

people were guided through

00:02:52--> 00:03:06

a nation, which will be such a large nation on the Day of Judgment, for the purpose of our desire to have the largest nation on the Day of Judgment. When we gather together our actual source of guidance is nothing other than that.

00:03:07--> 00:03:23

That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he encouraged his companions to read it frequently. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him encouraged his companions to recite it. The prophets of Allah encouraged his companions to memorize it. They're very beautiful honey, if you can find in the sea,

00:03:24--> 00:03:43

and have a Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told his companions, that there is no such thing as being envious, but for two people. Don't be jealous or envious over anyone but for two people. The first person in the process of law says is that person who Allah gave before on to many he's memorized.

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

And not only has he memorized the Quran, but he wakes up during the hours of the night and he prays in front of Allah,

00:03:52--> 00:04:29

be jealous and be envious of that person. Because he has something you don't have. The second thing the purpose of the law is that upset, be envious of the person who lost a part of what Allah gave love to. And he spends it in the darkness of the night, meaning he spends it secretly without exposing his deed to the entire world. The promise was long, it was seven, he was regular, and reciting the Quran and he used to enjoy the recitation of the progress of the law while he was sitting when he was starting the recitation of the Quran. In the hours of the night, the prayer would become so long that I showed you love yourself is saying that the 11 feet of the Prophet

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

solomani was settled swell. And this wasn't something that happened one or two nights this was a regular routine and the lack of the proper sort of level it was our beloved resigner. At the beginning, he recited the verses of pseudo Muslim and in these verses of us of huddle with Allah in the initial stages of Islam, or of the companions and the prophets of Allah, it was for them to spend a great portion of their night worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they were standing in front of a light that had you for long hours, and the companions couldn't bear it anymore because their feet were swelling up, and they couldn't bear it anymore because

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

It was hard on them they were spent standing for long hours. And the scholars have proceeded they say even with a lie, it says that this order of standing for long hours actually remained for close to one year. How many years? One year? Imagine that. One year of standing for Misra, who are you?

00:05:19--> 00:05:27

from LA Latina. And you know, these verses are largely the same standard in the night but a little bit misleading and half of it, you know,

00:05:28--> 00:06:03

or a little less than a half. A little more than that allows us to do the same that spend the majority part of your night standing in front of Allah subhana wa tada worshipping Allah azza wa jal, what the prophets of Allah they were sort of went through, to receive this on was great. And this is one thing we, as the Muslim community truly misunderstand, and we do not appreciate. We added we think for a woman that the Prophet said along it was sort of the revelation that was given to him was easy. Some of us think of revelation like the prophets that allow audio instead of going to the local market, making a payment, and walking out with a bag of Revelation, when the reality is

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

far from that. And the shift and it stopped at the beginning. he recited that verse in theology,

00:06:11--> 00:06:45

either by laws of which it says that indeed, we are revealed to you a very happy statement. And it was so heavy on the progress that a lot of a sudden, that the purpose of the law, while he was sort of feared his life when revelation was revealed to him. Imagine that for a second. You know, if I told you, you have to cross this wire right here, this rope right here, from one time, one high rise building, to the other high rise, building, cross this rope on balancing yourself without falling without falling down, because on the other side, there is a message that you have to deliver to these people, most of us would never risk our life for some part of the person. Here. The point is

00:06:45--> 00:07:24

that about one incidence, and almost every other day, or every few days, when the revolution comes down to me feels this weight onto him. And the purpose of allamani was that one day while he was lying down in the fire, another companion, the companion says that revelation began to reveal to the purpose of a lot of money. And there was such a heavy weight that I actually thought my five was going to crush, because of the weight of Revelation, I shall the law says that when revelation would come to the pockets of the body, instead of even in the winter season, sweat would begin to appear on the forehead of the Prophet so long line. So the first revelation when Julian is squeezing the

00:07:24--> 00:07:29

promise of our naval system, during the revolution of pickup, well, he's squeezing the pockets that allow them

00:07:30--> 00:08:08

to sort of each time he says that he squeezed me until the point that I thought I would be destroyed. That was my life. Each time he squeezed me, he squeezed me he squeezed me, when we talk about the sacrifice the practice of law, it seems we forget this one, like the purpose of a lot of money was set up for such a long journey of life preserving. And when he was given the pinata, he was worried about the profits of a lot of money was revealed to him, you have to understand he had a responsibility, that responsibility was now trying to, you know, attain this revelation, and conveyed to the people there for the purpose of the law to summon the revelation and come down to

00:08:08--> 00:08:29

him, he would quickly repeat the verses of the Quran, so he wouldn't forget it. He would come we know he would just be repeating them again and again, again, and again. You know, we repeat our phone numbers again, and again, to make sure we don't forget them. He would repeat the words of the put on, you know, again, fast, fast, fast to make sure you wouldn't forget that. And I was always other he says for the purpose that a lot of it was seven, to have any behavior sonica

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

there's no need for you to worry about repeating it frequently.

00:08:36--> 00:09:00

We promise you that once you've gone through the hardship of taking the revolution, we will make sure you never lose it again in nadina jungle and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he lived with his the greatest gift the prophets of Allah gave to the oma today is nothing less than the Quran itself. Your companions he has such great value for the fun that he doesn't, you know, you can find out

00:09:01--> 00:09:36

that there was a young man he wanted to learn. But he's a far from the city of the province of Medina. And he couldn't travel to Medina. So what he would do is he was standing outside his city limits on the pathway that led to Medina, Manila. And when the caravans would go would return back from within the middle of that one, they would get up from Okinawa, he would go to the people of the caravan and ask them, have you learned a new verse? Have you learned to the new verse? Have you learned any new verse, and if they learned in university would read it for him? Otherwise, he would pass them on and wait for the next caravan to come? Where is that nation gone that cares so much for

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

the fun. That made such a great sacrifice to stand in the middle of the day and the burden hours of Arabia just to learn a few verses in our teachers used to tell us a story. Every one of my teachers from Craig Wright, he taught us and he told us one beautiful story. He said to us that, you know, when Russia when the Muslims of Russia were overpowered by communism and they were going through really

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

oppression, to be a Muslim was a cry, communist, right speaks for itself. And then most importantly been allowed to hold full arms with them, what they would do is they would dig in their houses, basements, small southerners, and they decided that they would have a title that will lead to another seller. And then inside that bottom seller right in the corner, they would have a small room where they would be, there would be candles there, and they would secretly sit there. And

00:10:25--> 00:10:53

you know, where were people gone, who actually went out of their way to read for us? Today, every person in this gathering here has a cell phone in their pocket, and we all have easy access to. But the problem with life is that when things become easy, we lose value for them. When things become easy, we lose value for them. But when they're hard to achieve, you have the value for it. You know, there was I went to a hedge fund years back, and I was sitting in Medina binotto, behind the rows of the public offices.

00:10:55--> 00:11:08

And there was a man from Mauritania, and he was sitting next to him. So he was sitting next to me, I was sitting here, I was just waiting for someone else. I was just reading some blog. I had memorized the class, I was reading it off my heart. This man looked at me and he said to me,

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

so I said,

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

he said, Where are you from? I said, I'm from American history, reading a lot of my heart. I said hold the line, memorize the plan. And I live in America. He said literally, you know, he gave me this like, you know, omg look, he's like, a Muslim filmmaker. There's Muslims in America. How's it? Yeah, there's a lot of us actually, we have a lot of Muslims that we actually have Islamic institutes. We have, you know, hip factories. I call this hip schools, hip factories, because they just keep producing new students to the community, more and more children. You know, how many kids are

00:11:43--> 00:12:04

probably greater than Chicago. How many kids have memorized the Quran? It's a miracle. It's such a beauty that so many people have memorized. And we got into this conversation that, you know, by nature, I put the question on him. I said to him that Do you guys have, you know, in Where are you from? He's like from Mauritania, and Africa. I said to Maui 14, you know, have you memorized?

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

And then he gave me the look again, like you're crazy. Look, he's like, what? I was like, I remember.

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

He said, me memorize.

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

Every single person that's related to me has memorized.

00:12:17--> 00:12:28

I was like, Whoa, that's crazy. Everyone's memorized. The plan is like my mother, my father, my sisters, my uncle's my eyes, my wife, my children. My cousin's everyone the entire families memorize and put on.

00:12:30--> 00:13:07

Wow. But then he looked at me said to me, I want to tell you a little secret. As a yes. He said, We don't memorize the easy way like you guys do. He was getting challenging now. Right? confrontation was really tough. What's your big challenges? I'll show you my challenge, too. So the next thing he told me, I realized that he was right, we have it the easy way out. He said that when we come to the mother's side in the morning, our teacher has a big Blackboard. And he has a piece of chalk. And each student in the mother Sir, if you when you enroll into the program, they give you a small little tablet like this, you know, like a small little Blackboard, and they give you a chart. And

00:13:07--> 00:13:34

when you come to the school, the teacher will write the eye of the day on the chalkboard. You have to write it on your small chalkboard and then you have 24 hours to see that is how many hours you have. The next morning, what happens to that they wipe it off for the next if you're gonna see that I again, it's gone. He said in our community, we can't afford hard copies of it. So this is how we memorize it. And I was thinking that you know having

00:13:37--> 00:14:13

people who don't have copies of the document and those who have copies of the on the left just go on. Where was it? Where is the community gone? Actually valuable? You know, who actually cared for the funnel, you know, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam are different ranks. You guys are right. There were those before migration there are those after migration from the companions. There are those who participated in the Battle of button and the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him he testified for them saying that this group of companions who participated in the Battle of other are forgiven companions allows a wizard is going to draft agenda you guys ever heard

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

these narrations? Right? Yes, no.

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

Allah subhana wa Tada. Here's a Surah Surah In fact, what is the name of the song?

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

Very beautiful. Anyone know what the word means?

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

Notice you guys.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

spoils of war very good

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

Mashallah. Very good much spoils of war? Yes, it is referred to as the spoils of war.

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

What happened was that one of the first battles that took place in Islam was the Battle of button.

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

And in this battle about that the second year after the batter, a battle was over, they received the spoils of war, you know, someone's armor or someone's sword, someone's worse that gathered altogether. Now, the young company

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

And said that we should get a bigger portion. Because we were the fighters. The other the companion said, No, we should get the bigger portion because we were the brains behind the battle. There was a little conflict, you know, they came to the office that a lot of audios that I'm going to ask for us under the law, who gets what from the rules of war?

00:15:18--> 00:15:23

revolution came from Allah subhanho wa Taala as my personal level it was sort of recited to them. Yes, I do.

00:15:25--> 00:15:58

Put it in the law. What Allah azzawajal says that they asked you regarding the spoils of war, tell them you don't get anything. It's all from Allah and go to school so long as you don't get anything. Now this verse was actually abrogated by the verse of the first the first verse of the temperatures of odd realiza, which then gives them a portion. The reason why we were first told very clearly that you don't get anything. Well. So that was how we can rectify their intentions. They don't fight for the sake of the spoils for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and it allows me to reveal the verse that abrogates it.

00:16:02--> 00:16:42

Later on the sacking of the Serbian until the end of the ayah allows all the splits that that the categories are the people who benefit from the spoils of war. And in this very same suit Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the following verses, he describes the companions who participated in the Battle of button and explains their reason to victory. How are the companions victorious? I want you to really subjectively look at this battle. The companions are 300, more or less in number, under arm, they're standing there with sticks, most of them on their feet without any armor on their body. They came to stop a caravan not to participate in warfare. On the other hand, you have 1000 men who

00:16:42--> 00:17:15

left their homes with the intention for battle. They're just an armor. They have swords, they have shields. Many of them are horses, they have their spears with them, they're on their camels. These people were ready for battle, they were so ready for battle that they actually came with the confetti to the battlefield, because we're confining us, right? The celebration, right? They throw confetti in the air, they came with their music, musical instruments, that we're going to celebrate over these guys in the battlefield. Right. And then women came out with them so they can celebrate the victory as soon as they were when the squat comes in about in the button. Now you look at this,

00:17:15--> 00:17:48

you have a man here, who's just migrated when they arrived in Medina, Manila. We all know for those of us who study history, at least, that this habit were very weak, they became pretty weak, and Ill because of the weather in Medina, Manila. So the standing there and most of them are weak, they're skinny, you know, they they're not even ready for war. They're standing there with whatever they have. And in front of them, you have these US soldiers, and they're ready for war. And that's how we're looking at them. And a lot of them, he says that this battle was a very big battle, yo multiples upon, right, this was the day where Allah subhana wa tada allows the way that he proved

00:17:48--> 00:17:48

who

00:17:49--> 00:17:59

they were worried that competitors were very worried when they looked into the eyes of the enemy. When they were looking into the eyes of the enemy, they were worried and allows him to give him control when he revealed the risk of fraud. Yeah, even

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

further, first of

00:18:04--> 00:18:14

all those who believe when you meet your enemy relative to theater, when you meet the enemy, to stand firm, don't shake what Glock if you don't remember a lot abundantly.

00:18:16--> 00:18:58

Perhaps this will help you be victorious in the battlefield. Now, this battle is just about to commence and they're about to start. And this beautiful battle, you know, it's a it's a great moment in the history of Islam, how these companions 300 more or less of them ended up defeating their enemy, and they are victorious in the Battle of Allah subhana wa tada in the verse of the suit. He tells us a five things that the Sahaba held that caused them victory in the battle above it, how many things? Five things? What were the five points, they had great cardio, they all had gym membership, protein shakes, they were very flexible. And these guys were very good at archery. No,

00:18:58--> 00:19:06

none of these things. These guys didn't have protein shakes. They didn't have you know, gym membership. These guys weren't going to, you know, LA Fitness or export and other stuff. They weren't

00:19:07--> 00:19:18

allowed some kind of without when he talks about the five characteristics the Sahaba had that caused them victory in the Battle of butter. What it allows was very, very simple and fun next after that, in a

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

way that utterly utterly

00:19:27--> 00:19:31

elegant up Masada Omarosa, without becoming

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

a monk, whereas

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

these are the five characteristics. What are they lots of hypothesis

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

in the hierarchy for those of you who are where the language is, for that matter, the innama is for hustle which means that only it's to exclude anything other than that the true believers independent meaning the true believers are those that when they hear the name of a law, their hearts tremble

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Can you imagine that? Imagine what kind of deep love you have to have for someone that just by hearing their name, it brings a smile to your face. You know, you haven't seen your mother in years. Imagine this. You haven't seen your father in years. And you meet someone who has the same name as your father or mother. What does that do to your face? It brings a smile to your face. You see someone that is resembles Your Beloved, that brings a smile to your face, my teacher used to give an example of true love. He used to see that there was a student they used to go to the mother's mother's Islamic school. So on the way to the mother's day, there was a lady that he would cross by

00:20:38--> 00:21:09

every time and that lady would be standing by her door, and she's staring. And when he would pass by, she would go back into her house. On the way back, he'd be walking past him that very same lady was standing there, she'd be staring at it. So this has happened for some time. This lady was, you know, in our words, someone stalking him. She was looking at him as he was passing their back. Finally, one day when he was passing, the lady came to me and she confronted him and she said, My dear friend, young man, I have a request. He said yes to request. She said, I'd like to invite you to my house for dinner.

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

One would invite me to hospital looking at all these days, anyone invited me. But at the end of the day, like all mothers are students, you can never turn down the offer of a freedom. So he said, I'll be there.

00:21:22--> 00:21:41

So next morning, he showed up to the house. Next day, he showed up to the house lady's house when you walk inside the house. Here's a lady. He walked inside the house and she had spent this beautiful tablecloth of all this food starters and this and that. All this. She put she put a grand dinner in front of him.

00:21:43--> 00:22:15

He didn't ask any questions. That wasn't his responsibility. He just started jamming gala food. And he's eating away eating away eating away. And finally, after he's an eating system, lady, okay, now What's the occasion? after he's anything? So What's the occasion? The lady says to him? The truth of the matter is I really don't know you. Neither, neither do I care much. The only reason why I stand here every day, and watch you as you pass by. And the only reason why I called you here today to my house for dinner, is because I had a son passed away. And he looked exactly like you.

00:22:16--> 00:22:21

And before he passed away, he was traveling and I always had a dream to have one meal with my son before he passed away.

00:22:22--> 00:22:57

And she says I stood here at the door every day when I would see you, I would remember my son would reach peace to my heart. And I would feel so good just standing there looking at you. And in order to fulfill that last desire of mine, I invited you to my house, these dishes on the table coffee right here were all the dishes my son used to love to eat. So I had one last meal with my son again. See, that's what love is that when you see someone, it directly impacts your heart. You know, for those of you who are married, I want you to rewind, rewind back to the time, where there are two, three days left for your engagement, not even marriage two, three, just for your engagement, the

00:22:57--> 00:23:17

proposals were made. And you're going through the thinking process. And right when someone said your fiance's name, what kind of emotional effect would that have on you bring a smile to your face, you start blushing a little bit, a text message your friends are looking at you like I know what that text came from, you know where emotion when when you're really attached to someone that has a big impact on you.

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

I really wasn't asking

00:23:24--> 00:23:33

questions, to respond to a rhetorical question. Anyway, you know, this is what you call real love. The competitors have this love and

00:23:35--> 00:24:04

this is the love of believer has you know my teacher sheffey Some of us have white students and he says something very beautiful. And please don't take a statement of this as a fifth as a fifth ruling or a legal matter. That's not what he was trying to convey. He was trying to convey a very deep spiritual point. He said that the greatest sin a person can ever come in and again, please don't take this as a legal ruling. This is just a ponder over. He said the greatest sin a person can ever come in is to save the name of Allah. without meaning it without having love.

00:24:06--> 00:24:14

That's a big sin. to just say the name of a law without your heart craving that love that a person should have in their heart when saying that.

00:24:16--> 00:24:39

You see the name of your children you smile and see you make you make gestures while you see when it comes to the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. Today it's so passive that people can sit here you know how some of us needs to say artists the fire requires another as the fire because of our terrible DVDs. The first is that that's the state of Alaska wizard while describing his companions who participated in the battle but the first thing he said is in the middle of

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

watching the true believers are those that when they hear the name of a lot their hearts tumble in the heart shape. They have a very serious connection with oma tears are their eyes, their heads turning they say Did I hear a lot of somewhere or someone talking about a llama to join this conversation. I have to be a part of it. Not move away from it. The second

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

I think what it actually is,

00:25:04--> 00:25:38

when they heard the recitation, when they heard the verses of the Quran being recited in front of them, their faith would increase. How many of us can actually make this claim that when I hear the Quran being recited, it actually increases my faith? Most of us stand at the back without even knowing what the plan is saying. And how do we justify standing back here by saying that, oh, I don't speak the Arabic language? Well, if you don't speak the Arabic language, then you have a responsibility to understand what I was saying, we all have a responsibility to learn some basic rb, so we can at least understand what is being recycled in the form of what has been recycled in this

00:25:38--> 00:25:45

law. How many of us sitting here can confidently, you know, on a board on a whiteboard, write down the correct translation of

00:25:47--> 00:26:10

the suit of alcohol herbicide everyday in our soul, how many of us can actually write it down confidently on a whiteboard and say, that is the exact translation, we lacked in confidence. That's where our distance and that's where our connection is, with a loss of data. That's where our connection is. And then what we've done is that not only have we distance ourselves from the person, but we've substituted the plot, and its spiritual effect with filthy things, unless it

00:26:11--> 00:26:17

says that the remembrance of a lot is the true cost of contentment. I love it.

00:26:19--> 00:26:54

But today, you ask a person that if you want contentment most young people, most young men, and even our adults, you know, the truth is the truth, when they're sitting at work when they're bored. How many of them actually turn the light on? when you're when you're driving your car around? How many of us actually turn the pinata when you're getting ready for your exam The next morning, or in a few hours? How many of us put some color on to cool our nerves down. Most of us are listening to music. And we've we've replaced fills, we've replaced fill, and we've we've taken this pill, and we moved out the purity, the purity has been replaced with filth. And this is where we are today. I remember

00:26:54--> 00:27:27

I went to my teacher shift without we spent an MSA for him. And I asked him, she had had a question. Why is it that people feel contentment through music, and they don't feel contaminated? Most people are listening to the prod, they doze off. They're just you know, here and there. They don't enjoy it as much. Why do they enjoy this into Bollywood out of all the things in the world? You know, bollywood has terrible points, poetry and terrible music as an FYI. And the same thing with Hollywood music, you know, your MTV Music, it's all filtered. It's all full of profanity and foul language and foul messages. You listen to the stuff that are you listening to today, and you'll be

00:27:27--> 00:27:34

ashamed. You'll feel shocked. Your result will come to that very soon. So I asked him this question. He said to me, I'll explain to you through a story.

00:27:35--> 00:27:40

And he told me the story very interesting story. He said what happened was that there was a bad he was a monkey.

00:27:42--> 00:28:05

The monkey is a person who carries the filth from the house of the people the stool and urine from the hospital people and dumps into the wasteland. People didn't have drainage systems so they would you know, redeem themselves in a pot or some basket at home. And a man will come here and collect all the filth from everyone's house on a big basket, carry it on his head and go to the dump yard and and toss it out there this will call upon right. You know, they also called a method a person who gathers the filth and throws it up.

00:28:06--> 00:28:15

So there was this man he used to use collecting the filter everyone's house by one stool and you know, your waist, and he was carrying it and he was going in on he was going he fainted.

00:28:16--> 00:28:29

Imagine what happened to the basket that fell over. So everyone in the pathway like you that's yucky, that's nasty and they stop. A crowd came around they saw this guy was on the ground. He was out of the senses. That kind of a fragrance there wake him up. He wasn't waking up.

00:28:30--> 00:28:41

So a man was passing by he saw there was a big crowd in the pathway. He said to the people why are you guys all gathered here? Is it because someone fainted. He cut from the crowd came to the front and he saw the guy that fainted there was his coworker.

00:28:42--> 00:29:20

So he went to the guy and he saw someone was trying to put fragrance by his nose. He said well this doesn't work with him. He has around impurity all day this what you have to do to make this happen. he stuck his finger inside the stool and he took it out and put by his nose. And that guy oh Baja. He woke up right away. Right? And this is where our surface temperature is the same for pure people is purity and for impure people is impurity. When you train your body to be excited about purity, that's what happens. You lose you become desensitized, you lose that connection with purity. You know that purity, you lose connection. I once had opportunity to speak at a youth camp, you know,

00:29:21--> 00:29:52

hundreds of youth had gathered together for a camp, the camp there outside the masjid and the camping, you know, campgrounds in the cabins. And I was invited to speak there. So they have a special special session at nighttime. That special session was where the youth gather together. And they present skits, the color entertainment. So someone will do this, get someone into that to get all the youth will be sitting there and they'll be performing skits. So when the young man he said to me, Chef, we'd like for you to participate in our entertainment night. So usually I don't participate in this type of because they're really insistent. I said, Okay, I'll watch it. So I was

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

sitting on the bench in the back and I was observing them with their skits in their entertainment and three hours and passed by how many hours

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

playlists, and they were doing so many crazy things. It was funny, it was really good entertainment session, to be honest with you. But after, after it ended, I called all the youth nearby. And I said to them, Look, this is not my place to speak because I was invited as an observer for this particular session. But I have to say something to you guys. for three hours you guys performed any given night, and at the beginning, or at the middle, or at the end, at no point did you guys ever consider to put on as entertainment? No one was around at all.

00:30:31--> 00:30:49

This is where we are today. We think of entertainment being movies, we think of entertainment being cheap. We think of entertainment, being our TV shows, our internet, our phone, you know our radio, but how many people actually gained that true contentment, and they can entertain their soul and body simply through reading.

00:30:50--> 00:31:02

And here you have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he comes to the lovers who love your loved one. And he's given us good return on Tim. And I'm loving the messenger. How can I reply to you when it was revealed to you?

00:31:03--> 00:31:10

Awesome says I like to listen to it from someone from my own. So your loved one says, I sat in front of

00:31:11--> 00:31:16

him and I started the recitation. And he started reading from soup to nuts, which slowed

00:31:18--> 00:31:46

and kept reading and I just had my head down I was nervousness. Imagine when you literally need motivation, you're gonna have to get nervous. If you're pushed forward Has anyone here he's been into the pockets of loss. And this is real game. Now. This is not, you know, some sight game. It's not gonna get any more intense than this. He's reading to the, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he says, I was looking on a reading and I was very tense, that finally I picked up a little I picked up and he said, I was reading the verse. Okay for you.

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

To be sure he was in Africa,

00:31:51--> 00:31:54

the translation, which is how will they be okay for you?

00:31:56--> 00:32:22

How was that they he will allow range from every nation, a witness to testify against it? Was it not because either there are all of these witnesses, we will call you ohama, to witness over the entire creation, all human beings. And he says, When I looked up, I saw the purpose of the law while he was in the space was covered in tears, and he was crying away. And he said to me, I'm the last stop now of the law. Stop. Now, you have made me cry enough. You have made me cry enough. That

00:32:23--> 00:32:48

one day walking at nighttime. And the last one is reading. And the purpose of eliassen Lexus melody, he likes his tone. He's enjoying it. And he stands behind a little Musashi with a loved one. And then you know, he passed it on. And after he finishes his prayer, someone comes and tells him that you know, you were reciting prophecy that a lot of money was standing behind you. And he was enjoying the recitation.

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

So he went to the purpose of

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

perhaps lesson setting.

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

He said,

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

I didn't know you were behind me. Otherwise, I would have showed you my real game.

00:33:02--> 00:33:19

You're behind me if I know you're behind me. I would have shown you guys what recitation is. I don't know you even behind me. You know, where is that gathering all those people who enjoyed the recitation of us, we as a community need to build a connection with Oregon, there was a very famous scholar from the Indian subcontinent by the name of shifting him.

00:33:22--> 00:33:22

Right.

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

And he was a previous caller, one of the pioneers of the one of the great Institute's of the subcontinent.

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

And during the colonial occupation, he was arrested and taken into prison.

00:33:35--> 00:34:12

And released from prison. Later, he gave a very beautiful speech, and showed him that I thought it was a muhfucka. He was a thinker. He was a very deep thinker, if you read his books, you read it, even even his footnotes or his brief explanation of art, you'll find so much depth inside that you can actually pour over his words. So share with him about that after after sitting in the prison for so many years in Malta, and after being beaten, you know, during the night and all this, he had gone through a lot. So he really gave some solid time to think. And when he came out of, you know, the prison, he gave a very beautiful speech. And in this speech, he said to the people, that today when

00:34:12--> 00:34:47

I look at the Muslim Ummah, I asked myself, why is the Muslim Ummah where it is today? Why aren't you know, because that time, you know, the country was splitting, you know, the colonists, the Brits were, were taking over the country and scholars were being mass murdered, and Institute's were being destroyed. He has seen basically a nightmare of what Islam was going through and Muslims are going through. And he said, Today I asked myself, why is Islam where it is a wire themselves going through this? He said, I asked myself this question every day and every night while I was in the prison. When they were beating me, I was thinking in my mind the answer to this question, and he said today

00:34:47--> 00:34:50

when I walked out of that prison, I have the answer for you.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

And he said two things. He said the first thing are disunity. Today, we don't treat each other as brothers each

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

Personal to the person next to them as a foreigner, but a companion, a friend, someone that they can share a prayer hall with nothing more than that. How many of us sitting here who regularly attend the visit actually know each other's names? You know, we're united disunited. And the second thing that he said is because our attachment and our connection,

00:35:18--> 00:35:41

today, we do not have connection. And this is one of the last advices the purpose of awesome gave as hydrous, concluding as it was coming to an end, and the federal heart, he said to the competitor's product, if you can re mentally look into my second video, I'm leaving behind with you two things, you can never be misguided as long as you will firmly to them. Don't let go. Don't let go. Give our love

00:35:42--> 00:36:15

the book of Allah, in my view, you know, today, our situation is that many adults in our community level the kids can't even receptacle on property. And I'm not sitting here to put anyone on a guilt trip. But when we had a realization, you know, if you guys lived in some rural city in America, some rural village in America, he told me you couldn't I will probably say brother made Guatemala help you. But you live in London for crying out loud. How many scars are sitting in this gathering alone? You know how many people that the restitution is local law is very local here. He's local here.

00:36:17--> 00:36:46

You guys out here. And you guys, if you as a community cannot recycle fluently, and you're not proficient in the recitation of the law, then we have an issue, because then it is it's not about ignorance. Now. Now it's about being careless. It's about being careless. And unless Pendleton doesn't like people that are careless, the past person doesn't like a person who's careless, we need to step up to our responsibility. When's the last time you seen people in your community or our community for myself, you could ask yourself that we actually cried while

00:36:47--> 00:37:24

we cry, listen to poetry, we cry about we watch Bollywood and Hollywood movies. Because we don't have anything, we don't have a soul within ourselves. We're such a depressed nation, that in order to become emotional, we have to sit in front of a screen, watch some artificial thing, fictional story, and then bring tears to our eyes and cry. Because we don't know what we know what a real spirit is, or holophone within, you want to build that spirituality, and learn how to cry. And if you think it's impossible, that is a deception of shaitaan to you, because there are people across this world who cry and hearing the recitation of art. She has a very famous scholar from Pakistan

00:37:24--> 00:37:39

from john. He's written the story in his book, that he that he he met it at the buffet, the very famous part of the buffet of some of the lessons he read, he met him. And he has been at the buffet tell me the most unique story of your recitation, tell me the most unique story that happened during your life. While

00:37:41--> 00:38:10

he says that what happened was that the Russians in the in the Egyptians were having discussions, you know, the model, the Nazi was having meetings with that with the communists, right with with the Russians. And he said the leaders of the Russians would meet with the Egyptian leaders frequently. And one on one occasion, what happened was, when he was in Russia, he was meeting with the leaders that after the meetings were over, one of the leaders said to him, that we'd like to entertain you with an entertainment session. And he said, these girls came out, they were dancing, and there were some music playing. And some of the NASA sent to the Russian leaders after the entertainment session

00:38:10--> 00:38:43

was over. Thanks a lot. But next time, let me bring the entertainment. I'll show you guys next time. He came back. He had a message central shuffled and busted central credit. I need you for a trip. Next time we're going to Russia together. I did was I said safe, let's do it. They they get their kind of devices made way outside because there are private meetings after the meetings, whatever they call them in the bus, it says that I came inside. And these machines were sitting there, they didn't even know it didn't even speak my language. Right? They don't even speak out of either Russians. And they don't understand how to be they're not even Muslims. And he said, we're sitting

00:38:43--> 00:39:21

there on the table. And tomorrow, NASA gives me that gesture, like, go for it and show these kinds of stuff. And he says, He said this Milan, I just started reading. And I was reading you know how he gets into the zone. And he's putting his hands all over his face. And he's like, swaying left and right. Not swaying. Dad swing, what does he gets into the zone and he reads right. And he said, at some point I looked at during my recitation, and all these people were in tears and they're crying. The effect of the Java one is standing in front of Magellan. And he says to me, that I've seen in leader King, the Treasury system, read some Koran from and he says, Okay, here you go. And they

00:39:21--> 00:39:38

start reading the Koran and some nurses, he started reading somebody asked him, and while he's reading him, he looks up at some point to see how the king is reacting to the recitation. And he says, When I looked up, the Joshua was crying. He wasn't even Muslim at that point. He accepted Islam at that point during the recitation allows was I mentioned this

00:39:41--> 00:39:43

for a few minutes

00:39:45--> 00:39:45

before

00:39:48--> 00:39:48

he

00:39:49--> 00:40:00

says that when they hear the recitation, tears coming to their hearts, we need a community that is attached. You know, I was once giving a lecture and I was telling the youth that's inappropriate.

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

that many of us have on hanging for our rearview mirror. In the car, sometimes they have it hanging down, or they have a small little arm that's really small. Like literally this big. Have you guys seen them, I just want to mention on things, most of those plans are actually incomplete.

00:40:19--> 00:40:49

So this is a powerful, this is an important point to note down. And I believe that's a big deception because you can't come up with 100 scholars have written against this, this is what we call if you're going to print anything less than the complete will actually say very clearly, this is not the complete. When I was in Halloween last time, I found out once because I I purchased it in my pocket. And while I was doing off, I needed something to read from so I said, Let's pull it up. And all the prints really small, but I thought I could figure it out. If I didn't have any mistakes, I was looking at it. And it was skipping pages. And it was skipping pages. And then I found someone to

00:40:49--> 00:41:04

skip 10 G's altogether. And then after that, I thought maybe mine was a misprint going back to the store. And I was going through as part of it, all of them have had missing pages inside there. Okay, so be careful of that, you know, the rearview mirror, one that he had to put one of my good friends he had put on hanging there.

00:41:05--> 00:41:11

And when I got inside his car, he turned the engine on, he was taking us over, he turned the engine on the music, started busting,

00:41:13--> 00:41:18

pumping out subwoofers in the back of your car, sort of shaping the music, and then hit the button right away. Sorry.

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

That wasn't supposed to happen.

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

So I said to my dear friend, it's very disrespectful, that you listen to the music so loudly.

00:41:30--> 00:41:37

Is that disrespectful? This is what we call job you know, you're making a challenging and then you have this you have a TV and on top of the TV having a lot of

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

stuff to

00:41:40--> 00:41:49

read. And horrible scenes are going on in that TV. Well, you have a lot of clocks sitting on top of it. And he you know, so I told him that this bad that you're listening to music with this move around? Is you seen what he did?

00:41:51--> 00:41:51

Yesterday? Did

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

he put?

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

How's it probably doing what

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

I'm asking him to

00:42:03--> 00:42:13

do? You know, we need a group of people that are connected to them. We should encourage people to reset the thought we should have gatherings in our homes where we sit down and we

00:42:14--> 00:42:45

find verses of the Quran, read the meanings and share their understanding of one another obviously to the vibrancy of your teachers and your scholarship. But understand some basic if you see verse regarding gender, there is nothing wrong with finding out the transition of what it is. You find a verse regarding gender, there's nothing wrong, open the person we didn't transition build a connection with. I want to finalize the five things five characteristics and then we'll just we'll close the first middle. So how about a says regarding the companions who participated in the Battle of other than when they heard the name of a law their hearts would

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

tremble. The second thing when they when they heard the recitation of the pinata what happened to them.

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

Now my pride, their faith will increase that

00:42:56--> 00:43:13

their faith would increase. The third thing why that'll be in the locker room. They rely on some kind of water, they didn't rely on anyone else other than last time. And when you look at the companions and their reliance on a lot, it's really intense. It's really really intense to really rely

00:43:14--> 00:43:44

on anyway. And the fourth thing along with it says alakina Yukimura salata, what do they do? establish the prayer, because the first few things are spiritual. And some people believe that it is all about being spiritual, that allows us to live a few steps by adding the fourth thing What does that you have to do actions to, you have to pray, and what actions are two categories we have that manually, we have the feeling even the monetary actions, and then we have the physical actions, right, the physical deeds and the monetary deeds. So lots of agencies

00:43:45--> 00:43:48

establish the careers referred to the physical

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

discipline in the path of a law, therefore referring to the

00:43:53--> 00:44:05

monetary deeds, the person who brings all of these things together actions with his branches, and spirituality, in his totality, and its completeness allows him to reverse these people without because

00:44:06--> 00:44:14

these are the true believers. These are the true believers, we should all make an intention to build a connection with

00:44:15--> 00:44:19

the people who have a connection with open arms are the friends of Allah,

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

Allah

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

as

00:44:24--> 00:44:25

they are the Friends of the

00:44:27--> 00:44:59

right, and they are the special people of Allah subhana wa Tada. The purpose of the law is an assessment that just as the stars shine in the night in the earth, the people who receptacle on they shine while the rest of the earth remains dark enough from an outside perspective. This is the value of goals we settled on. Our teacher shows us he once told us a story that in South Africa, there was a person who was a man there, he had memorized the plot and he was a delivery man. And what he would do is every morning when he would go for his deliveries when he would turn his engine on when he went in his engine. He was thrown off

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

Reading the facts.

00:45:03--> 00:45:22

And reading at home when he would come back eight hours later, when he would power down his engine and turn it off, he would read them and assume that he went nuts. Every single day that man was completing a recitation. And he never got tired of it. Because they know what the reset isn't the plan actually never get tired. Our teacher told us of shift

00:45:24--> 00:45:31

tells regarding this teacher, that she has a lot of data he used to complete the resolution of a plan every 30 how often

00:45:32--> 00:45:37

I think 30 you know, how many, how many sexual how many portions we have? How many

00:45:39--> 00:46:15

30 you know what these 30 Jews resemble these 30 and Joe's work? Obviously, you know, during the time of the prophecy lesson, there was no concept of just we all right, there was no such thing as the first just the test, just the 15th just there was not a lot of autonomy to showcase our work, a lot of detail has discussed the history of where the juice comes from whether just wild comes from according to one generation, there was a Google this haba who came with a model of development put on into 30 portions for the for the facilitation of the sort of I can recite it. And according to the second opinion, he says that it was the generation after that came with this model divided into

00:46:15--> 00:46:22

30 portions so that people can recite it. The reason why the Quran was divided into 30 portions is so that the Quran can be completed every single month.

00:46:23--> 00:46:58

The parameter citizens should be considering how often every single month, and now you guys may think, oh, that's for the people that have memorized the Quran. That's not for us. We have jobs, we have work, we have college, we're too busy for that. Well, that's not true. Because for them for the five, they created the munzee model, which is you have to finish the recitation of every single week. If your complaint is that I can't read the Koran, because I didn't learn how to do it. If you're completed, I don't have time to read up on them. Let me give you guys a compromise to at least start with tell me you don't have the ability to listen to them.

00:47:00--> 00:47:00

We all

00:47:02--> 00:47:12

we all have these expensive phones in our pocket. We use them for everything. But for the sake of illusion. That's crazy. You have the ability to listen to the you know, if you download the entire poem on your phone.

00:47:13--> 00:47:46

The average recitation of one just takes half an hour of audio. How long does it take half an hour? And you know, I don't know how it is here. But this in America, the average person on the way to work on the way back from work spends three hours on transport. I'm not sure how it works here. It's been two to three hours. If you're spending three hours on transport, how many days are Can you listen to possibly today? Six in five days, you can finish them on very easy, very easy, and comfortable Matic just listening to the pod and it's completeness recitation is done. It'll have listened to the art has a lot of effect.

00:47:48--> 00:47:51

I want to share one more story with you guys. You know, I once went to a dinner.

00:47:52--> 00:47:56

When I went to a dinner I after the dinner was over the host

00:47:58--> 00:48:12

put the kids to sleep and the adults were sitting inside the living room. We were just having some conversation. And although similar hurdle put on being decided loudly on a cassette player. So I asked the host What does this mean besides so loudly? He said what it is that every night when we put our kids to sleep

00:48:14--> 00:48:26

around while he falls asleep. I was like wow, that's interesting. I said how does that affect your children? How effective my children is that my daughter now is 10 years old, and inshallah next month she'll be completing

00:48:29--> 00:48:45

either Quran or looking What on earth is going on? His like shares? I'm talking about memorization of a 10 year old girl. And that makes sense to me. Because When's the last time you saw someone who actually sat down and printed out lyrics of a song and said

00:48:47--> 00:48:54
