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

A BSc voila sinuata nimble. Hi, Robbie, can

00:00:42--> 00:00:42

we thank

00:00:43--> 00:01:00

you, Angela for having us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the Metallica and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR la Masato salon, and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean,

00:01:02--> 00:01:51

do you know who I am? Do you know who I'm connected to? And I will fix you. These statements need to come to an end? Well, he This is an ailment in our community. You are flesh and bones, you are flesh and blood, bones and nerves, you are nobody and nothing. And we need to understand this. Well, I talk so passionately about this topic, because how many times in our lives have we heard people say, Do you know who I am? You are nothing understand. Let us begin to understand who we are in reality. Allah subhanho wa Taala created us from nothing. When you say these statements of cover and when I say cover, I don't mean disbelief. But I mean in gratitude,

00:01:52--> 00:02:01

when in reality, you are actually symbolizing yourself to show a pattern that occurs in a book or in

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

judo.

00:02:04--> 00:02:17

When you're upset to the melodica, Prostrate to Adam, who was there at the time? It was Satan. He was there. He believes Allah.

00:02:18--> 00:03:10

May Allah be upon him. He had seen the angels. He had heard of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what did we do? What did he do? He says, stands up defiantly. In front of Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't want to frustrate to Adam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he has the power to destroy him completely immediately to end him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala asks him Merman aka, let us do the amount of took what is it that stopped you from frustrating when I commanded you? I created you, you hurt me, you've seen the angels. you've dealt with them you know of the unseen. You don't need to believe in it because you know of it, meaning you have your theme you have knowledge of this. So as a result,

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

you have belief in Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:03:13--> 00:03:29

And you defiantly stood in front of me to refuse? Why, why? Why did you refuse? So? He says to Allah subhanho wa Taala I know how you mean, I am better than him. Hello, tell me now.

00:03:32--> 00:03:36

You created me from fire. And you created him from the dust?

00:03:37--> 00:04:20

What did he do? He was looking at who he was materially. So I am made from fire. I'm better than him. I have more wealth, I am better than him. I have more power. I am better than him. Nobody is better than anyone. Except for the one who has more consciousness of what a Buddha says that you in general. And this includes me. I'm talking about this because it is a problem in our society. It is a problem in our community. How many times have we had people who are connected? who think that they have the power? They have the authority that hey, you know, I am connected? Watch out Don't talk to me like that I will fix you. Who are you to fix that human being yet and for lunch Susanna who

00:04:20--> 00:04:27

attalla decide you will endure in a split moment. You will endure in a split moment. Well lucky we need to understand

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

that we are only flesh and blood. We are only bones and nerves. And we are nothing.

00:04:37--> 00:04:51

Our origin is from the droplet of sperm. That Allah subhanho wa Taala created that if you had to tell a person hold that in your hand and lift it up. Someone would say no, no, no, no, I need to wash it off. It is dirty.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

That is our origin. Yet we want to claim that we are powerful and Allah Subhana Allah makes mention of this

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

Does the human being not see that we created him from a droplet of sperm for either who have

00:05:16--> 00:05:29

been so then he's standing up a clear and versary in front of Allah subhana wa tada you know, disbelieves in the workplace that you are jealous of the peak of gratitude, do not realize

00:05:30--> 00:05:35

that Allah subhanho wa Taala brought you from nothing into existence.

00:05:37--> 00:06:28

Father was the brother of Magna Carta. He comes through sort of lots of a lot more, I think you're sending them with some bones in his hand, and he can't move them and throws them up into the air. And he defiantly and arrogantly says, will Allah subhana wa Taala bring us from nothing. Will he resurrect just from these bones? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says now I'm you mean to come? Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause you to die. For me my actual Catarina nadie. Johanna, then he will raise you to the hellfire. That human being who feels he is also powerful, also mighty. All that the, the entire connection between him and that might him and that authority is the

00:06:28--> 00:06:35

breathing that comes out from his mouth, the day that stops, that is the day everything ends for him.

00:06:36--> 00:06:53

You have to bear with me to sell affection. When I say everything in I mean that connection to the dunya that material world that we felt you were so much in control of. It's bound by you to get that attention. There are three things that follow a human being

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

a dead person Malou his family

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

and his wealth

00:07:02--> 00:07:33

and his good deeds and his bad deeds fail to his nanny. So two of them will return willpower and one will remain. Yep, camara who is good and bad deeds will remain. That human being came to the grave. his wealth was day his family was there. All of this connection that he had to the dunya followed him to the grave. But what remained with him inside of his grave. Those were words that he uttered to the people that he looked down upon

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

those good deeds, perhaps in the case of a good person

00:07:39--> 00:08:19

that he did, in order to prepare for that day. The brothers and sisters, sisters in Islam, this is our reality. This is who we are, this is the power that we hold. This is the authority that we hold, when we deal with Allah subhanho wa Taala let us know that he is the possessor of almighty, all authority, all power and when we get that wealth, when we get that authority, attribute it to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yeah, Allah you are the one who gave me. So I will worship you. Yeah, Allah, you are the one who raised me. So I will humble myself before you. And then we will come to realize and understand our true worth.

00:08:22--> 00:08:35

Islam, in its entirety, has come to get rid of this ideology has come to get rid of this mentality of Who am I who do you know who I am?

00:08:36--> 00:08:57

Do you know who I am connected to? And I will fix you get rid of these words. Well, let me get rid of these words. You know, there was a man at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was beating his slave. He was beating his slave so sudo la sala Why didn't you will send them saw him and told him love

00:08:59--> 00:09:31

me Padilla Chica, Allah, Allah subhana wa tada is more able over you than your ability and capability over the slave. You want to beat a person financially, economically, you want to send the authorities to the business, you want to fix them up. You want to do something in order to destroy them. You want to get them deported to back to the country that they came from just because you have a little beef with them in the masjid. Then who are you? Do you think that you're not going to escape from the grasp and the

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

power for Buddhists?

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

Remember that you have Islam between you before you have anything.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

Remember that these are your brothers in Islam, and voila, here I am talking about the problems that we have today. Let someone come and tell me you know, maybe you are hinting at me. Yes, I am hinting at you. Yes, I am hinting at every single person who has the bad attitude, the one who thinks that he holds power, the one who thinks

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

He holds authority, what law means Allah subhana wa tada wanted to take you away in the semester, before you need it, you would have died with all of that authority and all of that power gone. So understand, let us understand our world. They just don't understand our reality. We are made of flesh and blood, bones and nerves, nothing else.

00:10:22--> 00:11:04

The only thing that will live on is our life within us. So why do we treat the poor badly? And why do we treat the rich very well. Why because we have forgotten our makeup, with our connection with our makeup so that you are generous with your Salah five times a day in the masjid really helped you your attitude would have changed, your attitude has become better. Why? Because in the Salah, telling her an infection, you will not come. Indeed, Salah prevents from evil, immorality, and that which is bad and evil. So your attitude would have changed, you would have humbled yourself before that you will

00:11:05--> 00:11:30

also Rasul Allah while he was in the movie. He is the best of creation, you look at the attitude that he had was his companion. Look at the attitude that he had with those who were his enemies in reality, he treated them well. He treated them with respect. And he treated them good, even though he was the best of creation.

00:11:31--> 00:12:16

Man who walks into the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he sees the simple map that he is lying on, to the extent that even the straw man had caused marks to come into the back of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he begins to cry it what is him that this is the messenger? And he tells him He says, Look at case law and case law, look at what they are sitting on and look at your condition or pseudo law. This was the humanity of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, do you know what he says to you? He responds by saying, Allah tells Bob and madonia whom want to learn, don't you? Doesn't it please you overcome

00:12:17--> 00:13:05

that this dunya is for them. And the alpha is for us. I don't need to sleep on them. bedding of luxury. This does not mean that a person who sleeps on that bedding of luxury is an arrogant person. But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so humble before Allah subhanho wa Taala that none of the conditions that he suffered through bothered him in any way, hunger. He comes out and which one of us can say we came out of our homes in the mid afternoon, and we were hungry, and we didn't have anything to eat, nothing to eat whatsoever. This is the best of creation. This is the humility that he had. These are the problems that he suffered through. Yet he was humble mantova de la hirasawa

00:13:05--> 00:13:42

the one who humbles himself before Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise him and when he mentioned his offer among young men piano, Allah subhana wa tada will raise him on the day of the true movement and the true believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The more authority Allah Subhana Allah gives him the more wealth Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him the more humble he becomes. Why because he realizes and understands that had it not been for Allah subhanho wa Taala I would not have this today.

00:13:43--> 00:14:02

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our wealth, a means of our humility. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us that humbleness and to grant us the ability to worship Him in the manner that he has asked of us to worship him. I mean, what's Allahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali. He also
