Bismillah R Rahman writing
Salah to sit salam ala Bucha Rahmatullah al Amin and abena Where have you been on Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim Ahmed
10s of Jumada al al Gula Alfa Romeo is nonverbal and more ethically, socially to identify.
2020, within a light Allah will be dealing with this important topic about the youth
in the Muslim community.
In sha Allah, I will address this topic be the light Allah
through the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in fact I have chosen
two of these Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from a lot of them. We have so many Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'll focus on the younger ones because of the importance.
So first of all, I will read those Hadith in sha Allah in very brief way. And then second of all, I will get into the definition of the youth and this issue of the use of the moral value that we are going to be discussing these values. I will talk about them within those Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam that I will be quoting.
So inshallah I will try to be very brief. Today Charla I will be with you for about 30 to 40 minutes, and then I will start for question and answers and close the session after that in sha Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, set out in your will whom Allah who fulfilled he yo Mala Villa de La Villa.
He said there are seven people that Allah subhanaw taala will put under the shade of his ash, the day in which there is no shade except a shade of Allah subhanho wa taala.
So, this shows important and this is how the Prophet sal Allahu Allah, whosoever usually catches the attention of the audience, and he is the best teacher you can see.
What do you call? Wow, even Hakim salami when he says, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is the best teacher he has never seen a teacher is never come across a teacher that is.
I mean, that could be compared with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Mar eight, Mr Lehmann kartu Coppola, who he said, I have never come across a teacher, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So one of the methodologies the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is following when he teaches is that he catches the attention of the people, he will tell them first fellas, you know that three people, you know, a person will be
what we call stretching his neck to see who are these three people. You know, three people, Allah smarter will not do this for them. Three people will be in trouble. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I sometimes will tell people listen, you know, bring their hearts forward first, and then he will tell them what he wanted to say. So now the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I want to discuss an important matter. But he began this matter by an important privilege that Allah subhanaw taala will grant some of us may Allah subhanaw taala make us among these people who will be given this privilege, who has that privilege on the Day of Judgment, you know, how
critical is going to be the situation the hardship would reach beyond what a human being can bear. You know, that's why they will be traumatized by the situation they find themselves people will be in a state of confusion. And not only this, Allah subhanaw taala will bring the sun closer to them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said to a coalition so Allah Alacati will mean that it will be like one mile is it that the mile out of distance or the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is talking about something else, because that is the mean also which is the stick we put in the container of the eyeliner, it is called also Amin, which means the sound is going to be very closer.
So without going into too much
detail about this, you all know what sound means and how
It is from us, you know nowadays and still sometimes in some places it is it is extremely hot. So, that means, on the Day of Judgment, the issue is going to be much higher, you know much greater in terms of difficulty when the sun is very close to to us. So, now you will understand, why is it so important for you to know that there is a possibility for you to be receiving this shade and on the Day of Judgement. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, there are seven people,
there are seven people who will be given the shade of the artistry of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment. So, who are these seven people, a prophet
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Imam are added.
And the first one he mentioned is the righteous ruler.
And by the way, I brought this hadith because the vast majority of those who are mentioned in this hadith, they are from the youth,
you know, Imam and I did the first person mentioned by the prophet sal Allahu Allah, who certainly is a just ruler, because leadership is extremely important, you know, there is no life without leadership. In a way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you are on a journey, if you are on a journey,
and you reach three people, you have to appoint somebody to lead you, there is no life without leadership. Some scholars said even if these leadership are wrong, but we have to be control, you know, human beings by nature, they tend to go beyond their limits, there has to be somebody who will be implementing the law in the people by force to get idea because you have different types of mentalities living in our communities. There are some people who stays away from shameful and evil things by themselves. And there are some people who are not willing to stop but because of the religious, you know, approaches, if he Allah subhanaw taala they stop the evil and there are some
who lack this and that, so they need somebody to put them, you know, into control, they need somebody to let them understand that there is somebody who is monitoring everyone in, in the city. So this Imam could be anywhere, could be an elderly person could be a young person, and Subhanallah and if we are just to stop this to see how much contribution had been given by the youth, you know, the younger ones, you know, when it comes to younger ones being given the opportunity to lead the Ummah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they did a lot, they did a lot. We talking about leadership, or Sam Abrams, eight, one of the great companions of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,
he was assigned by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to lead an army in which the great I mean, many great companions of the Prophet sallallahu, ala usando are part of that army.
But how was How old was he only 18 years old?
Nowadays, look at 18 years old, you know, in our communities Subhanallah they are in the state of haywire living in the haze, you know, the Live is absolutely and completely different. Those ones were not like that. Talking about leadership, this younger boy, you know, at the age of 1718, he led the Muslim army, you know, he led the Muslim army justly because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam will never appoint him if he's not qualified. Prophet did not appoint anyone except somebody who qualifies to responsibility is guided by Allah. That's the reason why when I'm rooming with us was assigned by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to lead the Muslim army. And he
introduced certain things which was strange to the people who are with him including Abu Bakr and Omar, they were part of that army.
Omar was annoyed and he went to Abu Bakr you know, and he told him Yeah, Baba, did you do you see what this man is doing with us? First he prayed with us with him, and he did not take shower he had Genova. Secondly, we are so cool. I mean, the environment the weather is too cold. And he did not allow anyone to light a fire to make fire. And thirdly, we defeated the enemy and he did not allow us to go and chase them away and take the booties. So they couldn't understand because this is the first time it happened. So Hala look at what Boubacar told him. Abu Bakr said to him.
Omar, relax. If the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that you are better than him, he will never appoint him he will appoint you. So when
Rasul Allah is Allah what message is trying to tell him just accept it because he was appointed by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam due to the qualification he has. And so when Allah when they reach the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and they explain to him and by the way, honorable asked also was quite young, you know, not very young, but somehow among the youth, if you look at the definition of some scholars, which will be given a shot.
So, he told us who likes Allahu alayhi salam ala Rasulillah. I was in a state of Genova. And then fortunately, I, the weather is too cold Jaros will lie, I already perceived that if I'm to take shower, I might lose my life.
That's the reason why I make term of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laugh, and he did not say anything.
And he said, the artist will like, the reason why I did not ask them to make the fire era Sula, who were only 500 of us. And we are going to attack a try, you know, there are many years who lie if we didn't hide ourselves, we might get into trouble. And they will be prepared for us, you know, errors like that, that the issue will not be easy for us. So I realized that we just have to tolerate the pain of the calls to attain the greater success. So that's why I told them to be patient, in order to relax, not to what you call submit to the to the call environment, so that we can attend the greatest success. And he says jasola The last thing they complained about me is the issue of not
following the enemy. He said so like what we want is to teach them lesson to bring them back to their consciousness. And we did. And also like there are many if we follow them, there might be ambush and then it will go against us we are only a few of us. So the prophets Allah sama appreciated what he did. And he mentioned also it is one of the best battles in which you know, almost nobody lost his life in that battle. Nobody lost his life in that battle. So from this simple narration, you will understand that Rasul Allah is the best leader in every in every sense, you know, he never appoint somebody to lead, you know, never appointed somebody to lead the Muslim
except if that person is is qualified. So he appointed Osama to lead the Muslim army, and how was How old was he? 17 years old? Can we do that? Today? To be honest with you, in every community, people will be in doubt. We are living in a community even to lead the imam in the masjid people reject them. If you are not, according to the age which fit the desire. Sometimes they will right. And the vast majority of the time they're wrong. Why do I say sometimes they were right. Because if you look at the nature of our youth, you know Subhanallah in terms of the quality of an Imam, you know to lead the prayer, you will find it been missing in many of us. And I teach in the university
sometimes if you ask the student to read the Quran, you know, simple things, sometimes what Allah has sometimes you come to the masjid, you will be hesitated whether to follow that Imam or even Oh, you cannot follow Him. Why because of the way he is recited the very beginning of the the Surah Surah Al Fatiha, the very beginning of the prayer the way he is right it is totally different from the way we are told to be the way of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in talking about the perfect read we are talking about simple pronounces pronunciation of the word is missing.
So you can understand why the elderly people when they come to the masjid, they don't like to see a younger one being placed in front of the masjid, you know, but at the same time also, there is exaggeration here because we have also Alhamdulillah in this regard, many many many from our young, young people who Masha Allah, they're so perfect in their memorization, so perfect in the TGT, you know how many times you go to the masjid, you will see that the Imam is making a mistake but the people behind him they're old, old people Mashallah. But they put the younger people behind. Why because they're too young to be behind the Imam. But then when they might make a mistake, none of
these younger people, I mean, all people who is right behind the Imam will be able to fix the Imam. But then he will see Subhanallah a younger person, sometimes the child, sometimes a child, fixing the imam from behind. But tomorrow still if he comes to the masjid, we will have the courage and the guts to put him behind to get idea. So that's the reason why I said we exaggerate sometimes although there is some right into that practice, which the people are doing due to certain circumstances where you find a younger person, but unfortunately, very negligent. So that's Osama bin Zayed who was sent by the Prophet sallahu sama to lead the army. He was a leader. He was EMA and he led them
justly because nobody criticized his leadership because people are monitoring to see how
person is, is leading what we call the subordinate and him been appointed by the prophets of Allah Allah Who selama is more than more than enough the last younger person not just not very young, but young
Hoke who is under the category, you know, in the category of the youth, you know, Omar Abdulaziz
when he was appointed to lead the OMA, you know, he was only 30 something
and according to an interpretation of
some scholars, a youth is the one who is from 16 to 30 or 240. A person is up to I mean, below 40s Oh, we still call him younger person youth to get idea. So, remember when Abdulaziz did not reach the age of cola
in New Jersey, categorize that the stages of the age of person, you know, the time when a person is Jenny Jenny means he is inside the womb of his mother, it comes out Allah subhanaw taala call him different, you know perfil at the stage of the Fula and then the province of Allah I mean, the person will be there in the state of childhood, you know, until the time he reached the state of the youth, which is 16 years old or 15 years old 15 to 16 years old, this is the beginning of the stage of youth pneus and then it goes all the way to 40 years after 40 years this is when the sin of the hula the age of cola will begin it will Josie call it sin the top of the age when the person the
capacity of the occult the mental capacity will be completed you know, to be very complete, you know, and a person was taught you know not moving the ankle will be completed and the body will not move anymore. And then after a few years, then the degenerative situation will begin. But this is for a fuse some Allah Samantha will not let them go like that even after the age, they will be able to maintain their strength and their power. And if you want a secret for this, my dear brothers and sisters, may Allah smarter grant is good is dedication in the younger age. Should I need? Do I need to qualify that? Yes, I should, you know, at least mentioned to you Hadith of the Prophet salallahu
Alaihe Salam i that will support you to make the best, you know, to make the best of that moment of your life which is the age of the youth. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam I said a favela from you take care of Allah subhanaw taala and the time of the prosperity and when you're young, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of you when you reach the time of difficulty and hardship. And when you reach the old age, Allah is going to take care of you. How is how are you taking care of Allah? subhanaw taala it means take care of his Sharia. How do you take care of the Sharia? The Sharia of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't need us at all.
You know, processes let me just make it very clear, clear for all of us Sharia and Islam. Islam doesn't need anyone.
You know we need Islam. Islam doesn't need us. We need Islam. That's why the fear is not on Islam. Islam will never go Wallahi Islam will never go from the earth, no matter how much they tried to call it Tao. They cannot you Allah they cannot the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam I said Leia blucon had a dean Marbella, the lady in the heart, he said this religion of Allah subhanaw taala will reach everywhere you know, every place that the sun and and then the day and the night reach every place so that means every place on the globe, that means every place the religion is going to reach he says there is the Azizi I'll be the lead any whether people like it or didn't like it there
will be no house you know there will be a time where there will be no house except that Islam is going to reach that that house. So the fear is, is on Is It a Good Idea to be snatched by others but the religion nobody can touch it. So Worry about yourself worry about your EMA you know preservation of the Iman in your heart is part of preservation of the Sharia of Allah subhanaw taala but there is an incentive been given to the person who preserved the Sharia of Allah subhanaw taala which means Allah subhanaw taala will take care of him now. And then when you reach the old age, you might be given by Allah subhanaw taala strength and power you know, your limbs will be protected in the way
it used to protect the Sharia of Allah subhanaw taala using them when you are at a younger age. I believe this is this is very, very clear. So back to the case of Omar Abdulaziz so that we will not digress that much. Omar bin Abdulaziz who was appointed to lead the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that very young age, you can say at the age of 38. You know, around 38 He was given the the leadership and Subhanallah he was able
To do what, you know, the predecessors did not do you know, right after our even IV Soufiane, you know, you know, that kind of righteousness that we used to see, you know, in the time of bawa and the time of Abu Bakr the time of Herma, we didn't see any more that much, you know, subhanAllah the world is in the State of Israel was in a state of chaos. Not only the people are suffering, even the religion of Allah Sparta are suffering from the crime of those leaders. Because even the prayer they mess it up. The person will come and do hardware in the way he wants, a person will come and pray, you know, you're not on time you put it the way he thinks is okay. They mess it up until the time
Allah subhanaw taala brought Slimani with Abdul Malik who started his leadership, you know, by fixing the prayers Subhan Allah does Allah him he fixed the prayers first. And he concluded his leadership, he has some other issues he has that these are the two great job he did for the Muslim ummah, which we will never forget. One is his feet he fix and focus on the religion.
And how did that happen? Because he has very good and excellent advisors that are surrounding him. Omar bin Abdulaziz was one of them.
And the second thing is he appointed Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz to lead the Muslim ummah, after him.
And how old was he? Around? 38? You know, not that not that old, you know, around 38.
So he appointed him to lead the Muslim ummah, did he do something
better than what was done
before him, that he changed the world? Yes, my dear brothers, sisters, if you've never come across the biography of this person, opening your ears, the listen to what he did.
All of the corruption that happened in the past, this man managed by the will of Allah subhanaw taala, you know, and the power of Allah subhanaw taala that last one to granted him ability and SubhanAllah. You know, he has only a few amongst the Muslims who are supporting him in the community.
And talking about the authority, he can see his wife, who agrees to be very dedicated after coming out from that excellent house. She is also an example of the youth. You know, you can never see a wife in terms of dunya can never see a woman in terms of dunya I don't think you can ever see a woman in terms of dunya than this woman.
You know, why do I say that? Because her father was the Khalifa. You know, her father was the Khalifa have four brothers were coulomb, whoever, she was surrounded by wealth and leadership and authority. You know, her husband is the Khalifa from every dimension. This woman Her name is Fatima Abdul Malik. You know, her father is Khalifa and her four brothers each and every one of them was Khalifa and her husband now is the Khalifa.
But if she agrees to live that kind of setup life, whereby even to find food to eat she and the husband is not easy. There was a time the husband was looking for what he was looking for one Dirham or dinner to buy grapes. She told him he used to be beyond this but now you don't have this a totally abundant the dunya to focus on the matters of the Ummah because things have been messed up. Almost nothing is is in its own proper position. Within two years, my dear brothers sisters, believe it or not go read the history. Within two years this young man was able to bring the Ummah back to it consciousness Subhanallah two years people enjoy you know people enjoy the time of Rasul Allah is
Allah Azza within two years, Allah says JAL Huck was a cold bath in you know the evil. Evil has no place where the one who are making plays for the evil Wallah. Evil has no place we're the one who making plays for it. If you bring the truth and you are sincere and applying the truth, they will have to pack it the property and leave the place. So Omar bin Abdulaziz used this until the time some people look at him as somebody who Allah subhanaw taala blessed by making one of the signs of the day of judgment to take place in his in his time when he says where if either man had to lay a cabana who had
this is going to happen in three stages. One of them happened to Tamil Omar Abdulaziz in some parts of the world, people have been looking for somebody to take charity, but they couldn't find it.
How much just was that ruler?
Allah Allah, but if we look at the history to see how did he let me lead the Muslim ummah in sha Allah, He qualifies this mention of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Imam.
So that was the first person you know, hustle. basally I close with this nice statement of hustle and bustle because
Somebody might ask amongst the student of knowledge, you know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, Leia T is a man Illa de vida who shared with me. A time will never come, except that the one that will come after it is worse than it.
But then they look into the time of Omar bin Abdulaziz was so excellent. And the time before the time of Omar Abdul Aziz was too bad. How come this time is extremely bad, but the one that comes after that? The one that came after that was so good. Isn't it a contradiction? You know, when we place this question to escala he answered that very well. He said people should know Islam collectively. Look at the Sunnah of Allah subhanaw taala in this life, Allah subhanaw taala did not make something continuous. Regardless of the attitude in the manners of the people, Allah usually give the give us example and a break for us to take brief you know, so that we will reflect and
understand what really happened. Maybe we'll come back and hope on the truth property. We have been enjoying the bad I'm sorry, we have been suffering from the bad life. But then Allah subhanaw taala usually according to the Sunnah, you will give us a break. Give us the example of the good life so that the ummah will understand that change is always possible as long as we want to. We want to change. He told them lab Dylanesque means the money attended for sunnah fee.
Imam when the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam said the second person he said water Julian, as number two kaboom are undocumented masajid.
And shabu coloboma, Allah Campbell masajid young person whose heart is always connected and attached to the masjid.
A person whose heart is always connected and attached to the masjid.
It doesn't mean the person to become a monk and go and stay in the masjid for day and night know the prophets that Allahu Allah Who said I'm not talking about the hearts that is connected to the masjid, always this person is conscious. By the way, my brother says this, why do you think event is prescribed for us?
That is for who?
For the heedless people, and then is for who are the heedless people, people of consciousness, even without a plan, they monitor the time they worry about it the prayer time. But other than when I say heedless people I mean, he lives in terms of battle. I mean, people who go out of their consciousness, they're busy with something they might not remember the prayer. And then is to remind them
is a Sriram. Misha ideen but one of its main purposes is to might remind the people invitation to the prayer and to remind the people of the prayer time.
But you have the good words, if you read about the life of the predecessors, subhanAllah they will tell you some of them for 40 years, some of them 25 years, 40 years, they never been into the masjid, you know, after the other five minutes, 10 minutes before they're done. They always in the most, you know, continuously for 14 years, 25 years. They told us about some of them. This is their life.
They fill up their their youth, you know with all of these manners and attitudes, then you can understand why this legacy they left with Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is still functioning up to date.
So he says kaboom Allah COVID massage it.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, was shabu and then he says and the and the shabu Nisha phenobarbital
and a young person who was grown up you know, based on the righteousness nature I feel about it in that his at the time of the youth was spent based on that which Allah subhanaw taala loves.
Honestly speaking, let us look at the nature of our youth nowadays.
Do your own analysis. What is the attitude of the vast majority of the youth in this contemporary era of ours
attached to the Sharia,
or too far from the Sharia, in most instances, the second option
we have this intensive amount of power the last part is granted our younger ones Subhan Allah because this is the most prestigious prestigious you know, age that you have in your life, which Allah him My dear brothers and sisters, if Allah smart Allah grantee, a section of extension of life, and you reach the time when you cannot utilize your strength, you will remember this golden era that you used to be in but unfortunately you didn't utilize it properly.
These are the best age for somebody to to plant, you know, his future, to think about the future. What are we busy with nowadays, you know?
I don't want to go into too much detail, but I do believe each and every one of us knows exactly
What the younger ones are busy with, nowadays, easy to be snatched by others, especially the enemies of Allah subhanho wa taala, the vast majority of those people who think that religion shouldn't be taken into consideration, and they don't see any difference between a Muslim and anonymous names, and identity is not an issue, you know? Why do you put a barrier between you and others, we're not talking about the barrier, the physical barrier, but we talking about the identity barrier, as a Muslim, you have to live as the Muslim, that identity of Islam has to be preserved in you, in the way Allah smarter want to see you that you have to maintain that, as a Muslim, wherever you go, this
identity must be maintained. You don't need to write on you that am a Muslim, but this identity of Islam has to be maintained.
Subhanallah, it looks like we tend to forget this. And then massage you'll find who is in the massage, in almost every place, with the exception of a few have been to a place where you find the younger ones in the massage, including the kids, all types of people that will be in the massage, when the prayer time is, is been mentioned, and will lie sometimes even the bad ones, you know, those people who you know that these guys have bad one, they don't care, they smoke, they do whatever they want to do. But when the time comes, they will send a kid, you know to give the mortar Temecula and you'll see them in the masjid, you know.
But the vast majority of the places, you know, you go to the massage, who do you find in the masjid? If i Nobody except the old ones.
Were are the younger ones.
Where are the younger ones, they are completely missing.
This is this is exactly a tragedy or lie. This is exactly a tragedy. As I said this identity of Islam has to be maintained. And it is really important to see it in the younger ones, you know, rather than the older ones.
And I guess you're aware of the plan of the enemies of Islam. In every place, the focus is on that the younger ones, because they're the ones who are going to take over. And they are the one who have more energy to participate in taking the religion up to others in a time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and those who excel, you know, excel in many battles, they're the younger ones. Go and read about the Battle of battle, the battle of Earth, the Battle of zap, you see the participation of the younger ones, you know, at the live in Armada said I was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out to participate in the Battle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I
disagree with that because I was quite young. How old was he 14 years old. Nowadays at the age of 14 years old, if you talk to a child you remind him about about Allah subhanho wa Taala his father might fight you the mother might fight you heard somebody who was saying that in the primary school, we shouldn't talk about gender or health. We are scaring people you know that. We are scaring people. We shouldn't do that in the primary school. We shouldn't teach them about Allah in secondary school. Also, somebody told me personally that this is wrong for kids to understand this because it is too strong for them.
Are we talking about Muslim children right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to give them all of these values of manners. At what age very young age Gollum the prophets Allah Some will call him Gollum. Yeah, well, you know, put him behind his camel or his donkey, the prophets Allah Allah some I will say Abdullah, in your limo Kalimantan, FL de la this great Hadees. The OMA is trying to understand which I believe if we apply it properly, we will live a very excellent life and life of prosperity, because this is the Promise of Allah smart and that hadith, but was given initially to who, the younger person and the prophets, Allah. So my thoughts that go and see his
life is all about teaching the younger ones and God He focused so much on them.
And Wallahi, it is a very interesting lesson that we should understand that the focus should be on the younger ones. Because whatever the case may be, they have more life, the possibility to live more and more in this life, they do have it more than us. And the enemy is focusing on them. Because if they managed to destroy them, what do you do with the older ones?
At the end of the day, they're not going to handle the situation. And you can see in some places when the younger one who are not educated properly the Islamic education, you can see the direction and dimension they're taking the nations is Allah Salam raffia. So the term of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam had the focus was on the younger ones. Prophets. Allah has some rejected him, you know, because he's quite young to participate in that very dangerous you know, activity. Very dangerous because it might lead to I call it dangerous you know, but it's, it's a high is in the high position in Islam, but it might lead him due to the lack of skill, you know, and the
younger age to do
As loses life, and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam doesn't want that to happen. So he rejected him. But I just want us to understand, at what age the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I started to receive the request from the younger one, at what age, very young age.
And during the, one of the battles, you know, I guess the same battle or one of them, it was a prison came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and he was also quite young. He said, Yeah, rasool Allah, I want to participate in the battle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I said, No, you're too young. We can take you know, he said, he our Salah can do the job for you. You're talking about shooting arrows, arrows, hula, and very good in this.
Nowadays, you're talking about what games watching football, you know, spending life with the opposite gender, day and night doing all of these things which Allah smart Allah says, Don't which people are paying the price, you know, from time to time, attach to the community and see how much evil the community is receiving from time to time because of this evil relationship that is taking place between the younger ones. You spent your life in this. And usually at the end of the day, in the vast majority of the situations if a person maintain his Islam Wallah, he receives nothing except regret. And the vast majority of the failing students in the universities, there are those
people who disturb their life with this illegal relationship. And Allah azza wa jal makes it very easy for you, you know, why do you want to destroy your life with this, go and marry. But unfortunately, sometimes the marriage, you know, when the child wants to marry, the father doesn't want to marry, let him marry, the mother doesn't want to let them marry. And you take them and send them to another place. Paula come across a situation my dear brothers and sisters, trust me in this, I come across a situation somebody was telling me, because I used to go to these universities, especially the private universities, you know, I'm telling the truth. Only Allah knows what is going
on in that in those places. There was a place I used to go on the monthly basis to give a lecture, I will not mention the name of the university, but I used to go there to give lecture to the students.
You know, so Hala, every time I go to that place, I hear things.
They even have a marriage, they call it the marriage of that university. I was wondering, because every time people ask me, new person will come and ask me about this Marriage Marriage of this university.
I say what is that, they told me a sister will come and the brother will come, you know, they meet each other in the university, you know, the Father sent them from overseas, they come here with no supervision, no control of anyone, you know, and they will get together, you know,
they will get together. And sometimes they have children out of that illegal relationship.
They married themselves by themselves, you know,
if they make it according to the Sharia, I mean, if they make it according to the wrong opinion, you can understand, but this one is just the beach, she agree with him to sit to live in the same place, you know?
How can we succeed? I mean, how can the younger one succeed if this is our attitude, so that story that I was telling you was a sister that somebody drove her in one of the universities, you know, subhanAllah, she said, that is nobody who she doesn't sleep with, you know, Polly has a villa. And she said, the father drove her in that place. And when he comes actually, he doesn't even visit her, she has to know that he's there, you know, so you can see how much you know this, this girl doesn't have value in his eyes as if she is not his daughter.
But Subhan Allah, we don't care. They can go and do whatever they want to do, but when they propose to marry and the Father is capable of letting them marry, the father has the means has the finance has everything, which the scholar said it is part of their right to get married from his wealth, but now he will raise up the dunya for them without getting it down.
Where they want to protect themselves, it will be an issue.
But what do you think he was doing in that place? Allah Allah.
So I will address the younger ones, you know, wherever can hear this. Focus on your education that will amaze the need of you. This calamity the tragedy that Omar of Islam is suffering from Wallah you might be the reason why Allah swatter will take it off from them. You don't know. But we need strong dedication, strong focus in your education. You understand that you are here. For what for a mission, focus on that mission. I don't say don't play a play, but choose something which is not contradictory to your religion. This energy don't spend it and wasted in the wrong way. You will regret in the way your predecessors Regret. Regret it. Many people cried and they wish they were not
That's called a sad, sad movie. The big idea here. They're the righteous and the successful person is somebody who are the
as they take lessons from others, not from him, you allow him idea. Branson says, take this into consideration, do not ever let yourself to be lesson for others, learn from others, this bad relationship, this negligence, this waste of time that we have in the universities, every university, you know, you have students wasting their time, four years of your life, you spend it in a place, and all the opportunities have been given to you, you know, you don't use a single one, because the aim and the purpose is what the certificate you're going to get at the end of the day,
which is not given the proper place because we will certify that you are qualified. And then you will be pointed next time the next day to lead the OMA, you need them with what you know, factory Shakila your tea. But unfortunately, since nowadays, everything is based on the paper, you know, the paper says you're qualified. And the reality says you're not. But since it is based on the paper, you will be appointed, you know, as a leader in the community, as a manager in a place. And like that's why you see almost every institution is what is messy. Look at Islamic finance, for instance. Who are the legal advisors who are the people who are pushing the banks to go in the way they are,
who are the one who are advising them, the younger ones who just graduated from the University and those people who graduated although they become a bit older, but they never go and educate themselves properly when it comes to the Islamic education that they're going to talk about on our on our behalf.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that boy, we can he said the RS will Allah He but I can do that shooting for you. So the Prophet said, Allahu Allah who serve us as the Companions, they said yes, yes, Allah. He is very good in archery. The prophets Allah, Allah, some accepted his friend when he heard about that he quickly went to rasool Allah Subhanallah everyone is rushing to participate, you know, they want their name to be reading in the history, that they supported the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala not in the way to be. I mean, we want it to be written in the wall that and people will praise us no, they want to have the support to the religion of Allah
So the friend went to the Prophet salallahu Salam and said Jaroslaw Allah, I heard that you accepted Him and you rejected me. He said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam I said yes, because we need Archer Archer in in the in that battle.
And they told me he can do it. I don't know about you. He said No, yours will lie but I'm stronger than him. When we do wrestling, physically, I'm greater than he'll arugula. There will be need of wrestling also jasola the prophets Allah sama said, Oh, okay, let's try and see, he brought the boy you know, the other one they try. And he proved to the prophets, Allah Allah Who says that he's quite strong. The prophets, Allah, some picker, both of them, go to the butter butter and see amazing things when Abdurrahman bow for saying that I was surrounded. I was, I was hoping that I shouldn't be surrounded by you know, the, I mean, great and strong people you know, to be in my
surrounded. But then when I see at my right, I couldn't see anyone except a very young person. And I see the left side. And then I see also another young boy, I was like SubhanAllah. Now what do I do in this battle? I'm supposed to be facing the enemies, but now I have to take care of the kids also at the same time.
Subhanallah he said after a few minutes, one of the kids pushed him with his hand. He said uncle who is Abuja hell, you know, Bucha is a cumulant. Number one who brought the army to come and fight those who Allah. He said, Who is Abuja?
Ramen. Ivanov was shocked at what he worked with Abuja, and the boy was speaking in secret.
So I asked him, What do you want to do with Abuja? And the boy said to the harbour off, he said, I heard that he was one of the wicked people against us who likes a lot so he really disturbed the Prophet, he said will lie if Allah smarter let me with my eyes witness him, one of us has to die hard Allah. He said, If I'm to see him, one of us has to go down.
Have dramatic without started to change his mind. You know, he thought he's surrounded by kids. But now on the way this one is speaking Subhanallah he changed his mind. And then after a few minutes at the other one also hits him. He's also talking about secret to him in secret about the same topic. None of them wants the other ones you know about it, because each and every one of them wants to do the job. And subhanAllah when Abu Jamal came highly protected, you know, and Dr. Molina when he saw him, he said children, this is what you're looking for, you know, he said they've they jump like an arrow, you know?
And they went and they did the job. Exactly. They kept their word and they did it for the for the Muslims.
So the Prophet said, Allahu Allah Who said I said we're shabu Shafi varietal
I'd really advise you, as a younger person, you know, have these good manners and keep them and be a Muslim, wherever you go maintain this identity, Islamic identity should maintain in you wherever you go. Don't you ever compromise if that has anything to compromise, that this Islamic identity cannot be compromised? The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, there are some which are not really related to this, but I will just mention the last two, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, assez whare Julian, they're at home routed there two months even where Jamal *a in near half Allah, and a person who was invited by a woman, you know, who was so great in terms of beauty, and also she has
position, but he says it Allah subhanho wa taala. And I guess I already addressed this, the most person who is distracted when it comes to dealing with the opposite gender, or the younger ones. The youth, I mean, the old people, they lost desire, usually, you know, the person reached the older age, he lost the desire, who is having this burning desire, you know, the younger ones. And unfortunately, we provide the system for them whereby they can mix freely in most instances. And we think good is supposed to take place. No, never. Allah subhanaw taala asked us to maintain that barrier. And as long as this barrier has not been maintained, Wallah, here we have to accept
anything that is coming, you know, and anything that is happening in our community, which we hear, you know, I live in a place where by almost every day, you have to hear things like this things of this nature, every single day. And somebody says this is only 10 of what is going on, that the media was able to capture, we are not for this announcement, we don't want it actually we want it to be kept in secret. But the most important thing is giving tarbiyah to the people and not opening that barrier which Allah subhanaw taala set up, we have halwa you go to the place you see boy and girl, and sometimes there is no relationship, in most instances, actually no relationship.
Thinking that this is what education necessitate, and somebody gives them that evil hotbar that they have to train themselves
on how to deal with each other. And then at the end of the day, when they're gone, they commit the crime, and they go and look for Scheffler for learn what to do, you know, and yesterday shed flat or Allah was telling them, please don't do that. And they will go and break the law of Allah subhanaw taala and have whatever they want to have. And at the end of the day, what the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was afraid of will take place, because he says no two people, male and female who are not related to each other will be in a place except that the third person who will be will be shaytaan.
Allah Hebron says this righteous, externally righteous, righteous people, they fell into this trap of shaytaan because they opened the barrier, they couldn't go out of it.
What do you think of us? You know, Imam Muhammad says you can entrust me in anything, you know, but not the opposite gender. I can't you know, um, you know, who is Mr. Muhammad? And he said, no matter how much ugly is this opposite gender, he said, I cannot be trusted. I don't trust myself.
And subhanAllah we have a person among our younger people will tell you no problem. Well, it's okay. One of the two things is happening. Either he is desensitize or he is the same of the same gender of the one that he's dealing with, but he doesn't know.
But other than that, Allah subhanaw taala knows what is going on. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says, one of these people that Allah smarter will put under the shade of the artist is a younger person, or a person who is invited by a woman.
And you can say a woman who is invited by a man who is I mean, very handsome, but she says, I feel Allah subhanho wa taala. And we have excellent example of this. You know, in the past, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, There was a man who repented afterwards, you know, he found himself in a situation whereby he put all of his body on top of a woman who doesn't want that. But because of difficulty in life, she had no option except to accept Him so that she can survive.
And that shows how important is activating re activating the cat system and the Waqf system. Because if we do have this system being functioning in the OMA Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam people like this woman will never be in a situation whereby she has to submit her honor and dignity for somebody to tarnish it and destroy it completely to get something to eat. And believe it or not my brothers sisters, there are situations in our communities where a person has to sell his her honor and dignity for her to get something to feed her children. That was a very wrong approach, because we do have other dimension but if Toby has not to be given, a person might prefer this because to
them is cheaper than other other means.
Allah subhanaw taala grant is good. So
or younger ones. My advice to you is to take what Allah's Martin says marriage is very simple.
Marry, you know and protect yourself. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam I said, Yeah, Marcia Shabaab, Melissa. I mean Kamala better for laser which he says wherever I can I can afford Alba. What is Alba? Alba is this the financial capability and the physical capability a person can approach a wife sexually. And also he can feed a wife financially He's capable, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, fallait is a watch, let him marry, then go to that fancy way, you know, just look for something that you can sustain your marriage is go ahead and marry this is the advice from Rasul Allah. And he was talking to who Shabaab the youth.
And that's when he started addressing us from 16 years old, those 16 years old, the prophets, Allah somebody is talking to them that they should marry as long as they can. They can afford it physically and financially.
And we don't, we're going to replace it with with with something else. So I really advise you to preserve this objective of the Sharia marry, as long as you can afford doing this marriage the best in the Bahamas, Allah so my disregard is somebody who has a wife Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, I said, if I know I'm not the real Basa what are some leverage you hola those people who are married, if they maintain their adult, they will tell you this.
They're more conscious. You know, I'm very sorry to say that because I know that most of us are not in this world eco, in this organization of accurate organization of marriage.
But the one who married have more consciousness, you know, the occult than more of the occult, even if he's at the younger age than more of the physical, you know, and thinking is greater than the one who is not.
Excellency in the universities also is taking place in those who married because they have somebody to comfort them at home, which the other one doesn't have. And this evil attitude, the disease once a person gets it inside the heart, Allah He destroys the heart, and in fact that it affects the productivity of a student of knowledge in the University. I teach, I can release facts on this. May Allah subhanaw taala grant His greatest good and the last person the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said
Orajel Vacher La Jolla for father's day now, I skipped some of them. You know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said and a person who remembers the loss of $100 in secrets and he cries because of that.
And the second narration of the Hadith, which I will conclude with it be the light Allah, I exceeded the time I said I will take
Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling well, but
right now I feel some strange when I was talking. I don't know what happened. Alhamdulillah talking about the youth caused me to forget my, my status may Allah subhanaw taala grant this grant is good. So the second hadith is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that says Lentinula, Padma Abdon, Yeoman chiamata us Allah and Alba. The feet of one of us will not move from each position except that ALLAH subhanaw taala asked him about full things.
Your feet will not move from eight position except a less than Allah's monitor will ask you about four things. And you are supposed as a Muslim to be busy answering these four things in this life. You're supposed to be busy answering these four things in this life before you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala
number one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said and only he female now you will live how did you complete it? How did you end your life? The whole thing given to you from the childhood until death? How did you end this is life because it's a man given to you by Allah subhanho wa Taala and the body that allows muhurta which Allah gave you which is part of your life, how did you end it how did you spend it? How did you deal with it?
And the next one is one Shabaab he female now and your youth How did you finish this youth mess? This stage this age? How did you finish it? So Brian sisters, Allah who we should be aware, we should be aware of this hadith of the prophets and Lhasa because these are heavy questions that will be
cast on a person when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and you know, I'm speaking the truth that this is the greatest meeting that is going to happen in your life before you are granted Jana Inshallah, you will never see how the greatest meeting and the most worried meeting is this in the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advisors to make all of our worries in this life, be the worry of meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala how to make an excellent meeting and a successful meeting. And the prophets Allah has somebody doing our attention here is that if you want do it properly, you should utilize your youth. Make sure that this age this stage that you have you
utilize it properly.
I saw that Allah Sparta will take care of your future, be even a light Allah you don't need to worry in the future Allah smarter will take care of it.
Be good in this, this level of the age, you don't need to do a lot of things. Allah's motto put an eye of protection on you when you grow older.
And Allah smarter will maintain that strength, the Eternal Light Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, Allah will ask you, how did you spend your youth?
You went to the University? What did you do? I focus in the university, because I'm dealing with the students in the university. And this is where the vast majority of the youth that I deal with exist. How did you spend it? You focus on your education? What exactly brought you to that university? Your intention also matters? Because one of the reasons why we don't care about what comes after that, because I teach in the first place is wrong. What brought you to the University? Did you ever choose the call the specialization you choose and based on objectives, you have goals in that you know what exactly you're looking for.
And unfortunately, the vast majority of us, although they have objectives, they have goals they're trying to achieve. But unfortunately, these are dunya goals. Allah doesn't have any portion of that.
I just want to graduate with a good certificate so that my job will be excellent. Yeah, he does a four years you're spending in the university?
Why can't you think and reflect at the first place to make intention of pleasing Allah smarter in your education, whether you're studying the dunya, or you're studying the akhirah, but let Allah subhanaw taala get involved, so that you will be protected. Risk is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala it is provided by Allah is bound to Allah. And don't you ever put in your mind that you education is the one that is going to make you risk is going to make you rich?
Color, it is not like that. Because we do have people who are uneducated, and so rich, live in a very good life.
You have people in the village that live in a very good life, they don't know anything, even how to write their name, they don't know.
I'm not devaluing education. Education is necessary in the life of a Muslim, it is a great deficiency, to have a youth without education, very great deficiency.
I just want you to understand this fact that risk is not coming from this
risk, risk risk in terms of the sustenance what you need to eat is not coming from this it might come but it's not from this. And as such, I will advise you to put Allah subhanaw taala in your journey so that Allah is for hotel will be with you even after you graduate. When you need Allah smarter to provide you with a better job that will protect your honor and dignity. Allah smart Allah subhanho wa Taala will get involved. So attention should be excellent. And how did you you How did you live your life, you wish those that you waste those four years, or you focus on your education, and you will maintain the Muslim identity whether your parents are with you or they're not.
Because sometimes the reason why we get distracted because the parents are not monitoring us. I came to Malaysia, I go to Australia, I go to some other places which a person is not making the right thinking just because somebody went to that place or you see them on the TV, they have this and that and they just jump into the place you don't even know how to live in that place and preserve your religion properly.
And now we go every single thing you do in this moment of time, Allah subhanaw taala is going to ask you about it.
So these values the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam are trained the Companions which are universally accepted values even in the circles of the non Muslim they accepted wherever you go, have to be maintained. We need to see them in in the younger ones. We need to see them in the younger ones much more greater than the way we see them in in the older ones. May Allah subhanaw taala grant is good. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said
why normally one Shabaab he FEMA for now one Mali he won't URL me Mother melody and the knowledge that Allah spatula granted to you what did you do with it?
You know as a younger person or old man, that knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala granted you and bless you with what did you do with it? How did you utilize it?
You know, you graduated from the University whatever you are, you have been taught by the by your lectures, did you put it into practice and action? Did you use it in the way it benefits your ummah? You know those ones they carry admission? You know, they carry admission, even a math teacher when she teaches in the classroom, they introduced the mission of their religion, the only one who is sleeping or the Muslims.
They have objective in almost everything they do it and we don't have and we have been told by Islam that we have to do things in the proper way.
Every single thing you need, in a way to practice the knowledge that allows more to granted you in the best way, or law you have been given to you by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And the problem is we're just lazy. So the knowledge that you learned from the university whatsoever your chef gave you in the university, the teacher gave you you know, Allah subhanaw taala is waiting for you, you will be questioned by the last one to how did you utilize it? Did you benefit the ummah? Did you benefit the nation to the use it properly in the proper way? Or you neglected the knowledge? And the last thing mentioned by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his one man, he mean a inaccessible who are female, and the wealth loss martela Granted you How did you get it? And how did you spend it?
How did you get it? And how did you spend it? So look at the younger ones. And where does their money goes? You know?
I don't think you need anyone to tell you this. Where does the money of the younger one goes?
This money is a blessing from Allah smarter, and you are just there as a caretaker, you know, to take care of it. And there is a heavy questions, you know, that will come on the day of judgment about how did you get your wealth? And how did you utilize it.
So the focus is on how to get it to make sure that you use the best way. You know, the people nowadays are in a state of haste. They don't they don't care. Whatever job they get as long as it can give them money is okay. I received many, many, many, what equal questions from the young girls about jobs. And sometimes a person will tell you this the only opportunity we can have who told me this is the only opportunity is just a test by Allah subhanaw taala. To see, what would you do when you are trapped by this situation of making a choice whether to choose Allah subhanaw taala, or to choose other than last one what Allah
so my dear brothers and sisters, I guess these two Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam are more than enough for the younger ones nowadays. And as such, I will conclude with this advice of mine.
They're both sisters. Identity is really important. Addressing the youth, and whoever is here among us who is who already past this age, identity is really important. And this is why we call Alistair karma in Islam, maintaining the Islamic identity, it is really important.
This Islamic identity is supposed to be preserved physically and spiritually. Mentally wise, you maintain those values, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are pleased to Amma Han, which are details and explained by this call is honesty, speaking the truth, at the you know, at the been almost every place wherever you go, when a person sees you, he see an honest person and he see the sign of Islam in you. This is what I meant by identity in the way you dress. You don't dress like others. He dressed like Muslim, wherever you go, regardless of what people are going to talk and say about you. Be clean, be smart, but Islamic smartness, not the smartness in the wrong way. You go
against Allah smarter and you call that smartness. That is not smartness and it will never be smartness. So the first thing is, Islamic identity should be preserved, which is based on the Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa taala. And do remember that the Ummah is waiting for you, Allah He you are the future of the generation, whether you like it or you don't like it, you are the future of the generation. All of these people who are leading the world, they used to be young, they used to be youth. But today, Allah subhanaw taala let them lead the generation they are living with. You don't know what will happen tomorrow. So you have to be prepared for this. Be serious in your
righteousness. Be serious in your dedication to Allah smarter, be very committed to the religion of Allah subhanho wa taala. I focus on this because success lies in the preservation of the Sharia of Allah subhanaw taala so the man, Allah smarter granted himself Mr. Ali salaam, Allah granted him this ability to have this strong civilization, which is far greater than what bookies has the queen in Sabah, you know, is greater than has and what did he say in replying to that which she has, when she came and she became like a villager. So the mindset, we're all at an alarming company how could now Muslimeen we have been given the knowledge before her and we are muslims Subhan Allah, He
relates that which Allah has granted them of civilization with what with Islam. So we have to preserve this Islam shouldn't be compromised in your life as the first and the last thing you will be preserving until you meet Allah subhanho wa taala. And with that, I guess I should close the session ask Allah smarter to preserve you and to protect to protect all of you and to grant our our younger ones, you know, courage to study and to preserve their Eman and to understand the responsibility that is facing them in the in the future and to work for that
You know to be very dedicated for the for last Martel and his religion in the hoobie college a million caffeine Subhanak Allah Morbihan DECA Chateau La ilaha illa and Stanford cola Tubu what will be like barkcloth?
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah and then from my side, if the host is there,
and there is any question, please do let me know about it.
So I want to go bless you, for the person who was tempted by a woman, and He abstains and says, I fear Allah, can this be applied generally, say a person who, who's offered to do so and with a high person and rank manager of a company, Minister, etc.
See the question again, for a person who is tempted by a woman and He abstains and says, I fear Allah, can this be applied generally, if a company manager or someone offered to do so, yes, that's, that's it has to be applied actually, generally, in every place, we have to apply this is Hadith that is directed to the Omar Muhammad salallahu, Alaihe. Salam, it is not specifically addressing a specific time for people, everyone is included, not the younger ones. But the younger ones, they're the most vulnerable people in this regard. That's why the focus might be on them, rather than the old man who lost his desire, but it is applicable upon every place, let's say a sister happened to
be in the wrong place, you know,
next to the man all the time next to him in a row in which he is supposed to quit this job, because this is halwa. That is not supposed to be happening, you know, where it's supposed to cut it off. There has to be, it has to be in an open place where people can see them. But if somebody is invited in any place, they have to reject it, and they have to deny it, they have to stay away from it, they get it, even if they're going to lose their job, let them lose their job Wallah, it is better for a woman to go and eat the leaves of the tree than submitting herself to a criminal who will commit an evil act with her. And this happens, unfortunately, even in the universities, you know, in
universities, in some universities, you know, a woman cannot pass you know, unless some of the sisters unless if they submit themselves, you know, to criminals, then they can be given the mark what is she looking for this education? What is the good in in working, you know, what, what is what is she looking for, that she has to submit herself and tell her honor and dignity for how to reach this, this this position?
So, Hala, we have to understand this reality, you know, risk is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala so a person should work and preserve his honor and dignity no matter what, don't sacrifice and don't sell your honor and dignity because of what because of the dunya dinner you can get it from everywhere. But if you lost your honor, this one cannot be replaced at all. So if a sister walks into place or brother work in a place which he is threatened to commit this illegal relationship that's been the time for him to quit this job is actually was there yesterday not today. He must quit immediately. He has to stay away from it immediately.
This is where Hijra is is necessary. May Allah subhanaw taala grant is good
we have other questions okay. How would you like my host come back
Yeah, so even had a technical issue Can you hear me now clearly Yeah, very clearly.
What is the use of relationship before marriage? How will you explain it to opposite gender have a relationship or intention to get married and close the work together for studying it in Ghana etc.
The last part of the question and
and closing work together okay. KK I got it.
Okay, let me put it for you. If we're looking for Islam, Islamic approach and we are honest to ourselves, let me put for you the way Islam addressed this matter. Islam made it very simple. We made it complicated and we lost in most instances. And believe me, believe me, if you wish, in many countries where they
is a relationship which are an Islamic taking place. In many countries, countries at the end of the day, he will corrupt the sister, or when it comes to marriage, some of them they go to the village, they will never agree to marry a sister who went to the University. Believe it or not, I have examples of places where people, you know, it will be very difficult to see a university student who is married from the university. He doesn't want, it will tell you, we know who they are.
But Subhanallah what's happened to the uncle of those sisters who are living with them, she let herself to be corrupted by him. But when it comes to the reality, and marriage, you know, he will never agree to marry with her.
Because he knows he cannot trust her. He doesn't know how many people she goes with, and what exactly is happening. You know, I blame the sister side, because they are the victim in most instances, he ran away, he corrupt under run away and go and look for somebody whom you call pure and clean. So what kind of approach that we have Islamically when a person wanted to marry, very simple, you identify first the person the candidate you want. And the second thing and I hope, people who are here, they will listen to me properly? How are we supposed to make it you identify the candidate you want to marry?
And then check about their attitudes and manners and righteousness? And how do you know about this? Some people became very any sensitive, they don't understand the reality of
How is it possible for me to ask the person about himself, you know, to tell me whether he's righteous or not. That's what when you're looking about the madness and the attitudes of a person and how much he practice the religion, you don't ask him. You know, I'm telling the truth, if you to ask you, in most instances, he will not be honest to you. Even if he doesn't pray to Allah smarter, any completely, he will tell you he is a very honest person, and he prays five times in a day.
And especially when it comes to marriage, the sisters must know this. And the brothers must know this, once the heart get together is not easy to disconnect them. A person is willing to do everything possible to attract the other party to accept them, that sister will be doing things which she knows the suitor want. And the person also will be doing things which he knows that the future, you know, candidate likes. So how do I know about his attitude and his manners? I asked the community, I go to the people who I believe they know him properly, and they will not cheat in the answers. That's why even Islam says it is not backbiting you can talk about the attitudes and the
manners and the religious and behavior of that person and you're not backbiting them, because it is necessary for us to do that.
So first you identify the person you want. And secondly, you go and check about their manners and the attitude from the community, the community will tell you everything.
And thirdly, and then if you are okay, you are satisfied that this is your, the person inshallah This is the best person to be your future wife, or your future husband. But let me focus on that. And then there may looking for a wife. If he is satisfied, then the next stage is to approach the family members, whoever is supposed to grant the final word, a really
good idea, these strategies are supposed to be maintained, because not maintaining them always put us into trouble. Because if I go straight forward, and there is a sister who I want to marry, and then I just go and talk to her straightforward, she might agree. And once you agree, we come together only Allah knows will happen in between. And then tomorrow, I might be going to the family, I talked to them, I want to marry your daughter, the father might tell me no, I don't want, the mother will say I don't want and then it will be crisis at home between the girl and her parent. And we have heard about cases where the boy ran away with the golf, they both ran away because the
parent of the girl doesn't want to give him and we have heard situations whereby other things which are taking place which are so evil before or during the marriage with somebody who she doesn't want about the parent one, but she has another candidate. That's why it's necessary before you approach her. Unless if there is no any other way to approach the parent, talk to the parent first, get the red line I mean green light lavender and then get the green line that you can go ahead.
And then after that, of course they will go they will arrange a meeting between you and their daughter in you and them between you and this is the healthiest way and this is the best way My dear brothers and sisters. So then if you agree with her physical parents, she agrees with your physical apparent, you know you already check about the attitudes that the man has, you have no problem with that. But now if you agree with her or she agrees with you, then the next stage will take place which is the marriage which shouldn't take long.
It should be as quickly as possible, as quickly as possible. That's why you can marry within a week or so.
Some people said no, I don't get to know her attitude and her manners and how much she thinks, you know, this is a joke. Agree or not my dear brothers and sisters, this is a joke, you will never the real attitude of your wife of the girl you want to marry. And she will never the real attitude and your manners, you know, until the marriage happened, while we do the search to get the clue of of the way they live with others to understand that most probably will not fail in this regard. But to get the mentality the way they think this one can only happen when you marry. Because usually people can hide things, you know, for a very short period of time, but after the marriage, that attitudes
and manners cannot be hidden. So, I will come back to see that identification of the person who you want to marry.
And then check about the attitudes and the manners and then talk to the parents. Then go ahead. This is how we supposed to begin. You will never find a place my dear brothers and sisters in the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam or where you are recommended to talk to the girl before you marry her. It is not haram to talk. But the way we are doing it is wrong and it leads to evil most of the time, if not all the time. And what we are claiming to do that we are trying to understand who they are. This is a joke. That's why most instances, you know, after the marriage, the wife will be complaining the husband will be complaining. Ah I got cheated. I never thought you were like
this. And he'll also say I never thought you were like this yes of course because you deceive yourself. Islam guided you because if you focus on the man has an attitude Wallah. If your wife is righteous and she fears Allah subhanaw taala you're going to enjoy life. If your husband is righteous and he fears Allah smarter, you're going to enjoy life, the focus will be on these ones, you know, not shallow thinking, you know, not shallow kind of love, which will fizzle in a very quick manner. So I will repeat that kind of relationships should be stuffed when you identify the one whom you want to marry. Just make it very quickly. No sending messages not not talking to each
other, not sitting down and eating with each other not doing that will be called Jalan Jalan and going around everyplace you know, No, she's not your wife yet. You know, this one you do it after, after the marriage, every single movement you do with her, you might be sinning because of that.
And you want Allah smarter to put back in your marriage. And unfortunately, you started in the wrong in the wrong way. So here's my personal advice to our younger ones. Focus on your education, until the time you want to marry don't open this page before the time you decided to marry. Sometimes I just jump into the university and I see a girl I want to marry and then I open this page we keep on talking chatting going around, you know for four years. And that affects the education not just your iman, even the dunya also is going to get is going to get affected so close this page until the time you want to marry lower your gaze, then open your eyes and look you're here and they're here and
that you will be distracted.
Last Martella grant is good. And help us to choose the best partner or not let us recreate in this regard.
Yes, Sheikh Omar
we have another question. How to Apply Islamic values and principles in everyday life. Very simple. Choose good friends. And when you are choosing the friends you know after educating yourself, learn what are these Islamic values first and know them and then choose an excellent partner to be with you. I'm not talking about the wife, but even your friends who are supposed to be with you they should be upon these values and manners. But if you go and take everyone to be a friend in the way we see nowadays, everyone should I mean can come and become your friends. This is very dangerous, and it's very wrong. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Let sahih la movement while I
called Dharma K letter K, don't you ever take somebody to be close to you as a friend except a believer? A good one. Because these are the one when they see you going in the wrong way they will fix you they will advise you they will put you in the right place and seeing them from time to time is more than enough for you to be to be guided to Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is essential. So knowledge is is important. And try also be in the circles of remembers, you know I will give the example of UI UI we have so many classes being run in the in our Masjid in so many places, but unfortunately when you go to the classes, you know we have around 20,000 students you know some
something around that that nature but you go into these cycles of remembrance you see only a few
but I'm telling you, my dear brothers sisters, those places when you go and sit down for like between Marguerite Manisha sometimes it's how long one hour or less than less than one hour is enough, you know, to refresh the Eman and you you know, as one of the brothers said among the youth, you know, he said so and so and so person is coming to our university to teach. You know, when somebody was asking him, he said Al Hamdulillah we got somebody to come and visit us from time to time to T
He says, He said, That's enough for us, you know, to come back to our consciousness, you know, after 2345 days, we can maintain that, and then we go back, and then he will come back also, and give us the same Naseeha This is how we, you know, keep those values and manners you know, so, make sure that you learn first these manners and values. And secondly, choose a good friend, good company, you cannot live alone, you have to have somebody next to you, which is a good a good ones. And please don't stay away completely from the cycles of remembers, have a list, the one that you attend weekly basis, or bi weekly, after every two weeks, you have a place where you go, and the chef or the
instructor is going to remind you about Islamic minor minors and values barkcloth equal.
other question, what is good to get married?
What is a
What is what is it's good to get? 16?
Yeah, or if you go with, if you work with the system, any and most of the countries they don't say is haram, but they said, according to the law, you have to read 1718 But at least then go beyond that, you know, nowadays in some places Subhanallah, even a 24 years or is too early, you know, and you know how much you're wasting, you know, for the OMA, you might find this funny, but it's the reality How much were wasted a lot. When you were married at the age of 24. You know, from 16 to 24. You we lost how many years? Eight years, we're supposed to have at least five to seven children at that moment we lost.
And we still think this is right? No. So the best age quite high, the best age the best age is 16 years old. You go older, you know, marry at the age of 1817. But then go beyond 24. Especially the sister side is wrong to go beyond 24. Because according to some of the cultural practice the age of 2425 is the age of Arusha they call it that's going beyond the age of marriages. So sometimes they have to compromise. You know, you have so many people who don't want to marry somebody who is a bit older, especially when it comes to the why it is unfair to find the brothers at any age, as long as he has money he can marry but in many communities when a sister passed the age of 25, it will not be
easy for her to get an appropriate person who she desires. So Honestly speaking, I will propose the same age the prophets Allah holism was addressing when he says Shabaab and shall begins from from 16th in the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam a you find these early marriages and there was no problem with that you know, of the line with armor between him and his father and reveal us it's only 11 years do you know that between the Father and the Son is only 11 years
they get ideas so that's why sometimes we might be at the very old age when when people see you with when people see your children they will be thinking that this is your brother's you know?
The difference is very little the time you want them to support you, you know, they're still young, you know? Anyway, may Allah subhanaw taala help our our students to think wisely you know
maybe maybe, maybe maybe wami club, I don't know how much is it why me or just the name but maybe this one since you care so much about youth, you know, maybe you open an account for the youth whoever wants to marry tell him come inshallah tomorrow you have like 6000 applications, you know, it'd be good inshallah females and has an article you know.
I have a question. Okay. Nowadays, we are influenced by, you know, in many different ways from like, environment, the media, social media everywhere. So how do you maintain, like the identity of Islam that you were talking about? How to preserve Islam in our hearts is, especially as I mentioned, nowadays,
well, like, honestly speaking, this is one of the issues I decided to talk about, but unfortunately, I don't want to exhaust you and exhaust myself. That's why I cut it off. I give general principles. But it is really an issue that is alarming. You know, we are losing people because of the social media. And as such, my advice in this regard is to say that
we have to preserve our identity, how to preserve your identity, remember that you are Muslim, and time is one of the most valuable gift from Allah subhanaw taala to you. And don't you ever test your iman and try not to test your iman at all? What happens is we test our iman, we test our iman and
And this is very dangerous. How do you test our iman, we visit every single website. Last time I was caught in
to some of you guys that assisted talk to me. I don't know whether she's still alive or not, and it allows me to preserve them. But is this a talk to me that she has a doubt in the religion? You know, she said she, she doesn't she has doubt in Islam, you know, And subhanAllah and other sister was waiting for my reaction, you know, to see, am I going to fight back and get harsh, you know, when she sees that I don't fight, you know, I don't hate. She said, Okay. She also can present her case, you know, he said, Yeah, I also have the same concern that I don't I don't feel that much that Islam is the correct religion of Allah subhanaw taala.
And I used to deal with these
whereby I will be sitting with a person who was introduced to me by others, that he has doubt in the religion of Allah smart Allah to be the correct religion. And in all of these situations,
the reason why these guys fell into that which they they are in.
It is because of the media. Yeah, it is because of the media. So my advice is, we shouldn't test our iman, we shouldn't test our iman at all, he should be very selective when it comes to where to go on the media. First of all, unnecessarily, a group should be avoided. Joining group nowadays, you don't want to join a group people put you inside this issue of the Facebook should be monitored properly, you should know where to go if you decide to go for it.
But if you think that you're not strong enough to protect your Eman and your honor and dignity and your identity, I will advise you to disconnect yourself from it. Any any social media that is a change in your life, and and have an impact on your attitude and your manner. As a Muslim, you have to stay away from it and look for other alternatives. So the first thing you should do is not to test your iman, and also be very selective when it comes to where to visit. Because all of those ones when he talked to me, Wallah, he, some of them I found the website they have been visiting, which changed them completely. They're the website which are introduced by the apostate.
And you have a younger person who doesn't have any criteria and the tools to differentiate between right and wrong. When you let him go and swim in the media, what do you think he's going to come up with? Come out with it?
So this is a very important question that I believe the answer is very simple, that a Muslim should remember that Allah subhanaw taala monitors him knows where you should know what to do and where to go. And don't waste your time, all of this time that we're spending on the Facebook, you know, we're spending on Twitter, we're spending on YouTube, we are spending on Instagram, these are only thing I know, in all of these times that we are spending a lot smarter will ask you every single second you spend on them, you will be questioned by ALLAH SubhanA wa and we have no excuse. When we lose our identity or lie we have no excuse in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala and as such, we should be very
sensitive. I think this is the best answer I can give you we should be very sensitive when it comes to what to do and how to approach these social media. And don't trust anyone don't visit accept something that you have no doubt. No doubt in it. You know, don't just go randomly because you might lose your your iman not knowing that you're going against your EMA Allah subhanaw taala grant is good and grantors consciousness to understand how to deal with this social media is a very good means of educating people on spreading the message of Allah subhanaw taala but at the same time, the enemy is using it also as a tool to put doubt in the Muslim community and they succeed that
succeeded to certain extent in that regard. So let's close the door. Don't give them chance to do to do that. May Allah Smarty practice good.
And also when you happen to open a page on these social media, he should know who to accommodate don't open it for everyone. You know we have people who get distracted and get destroyed because they open it for everyone they get a lot of new invitation and that was the beginning of the destruction May Allah subhanaw taala guide us to truth
I will I would like just to remind everyone that if you have any question you can write a question in the chat or just raise your hand and then we will give you the money. So should Rahim. What is the best way to utilize the golden era that you were talking about other than just studying for for us?
