Rahman I mean salatu salam ala rasulillah I mean, while early he was savage mine and my But first of all, thank all of you for coming Mashallah
for taking the time out and for waiting here, and I'm very happy to be with you here and Mr. Joe Hayden to be with all my brothers and sisters in Denmark.
And it has been a great trip for me and it's a great blessing to meet so many wonderful people that you've never met before, but you feel like you've known them your whole life. So it's it's an honor for me to be here. And I always say this, and I say this publicly that I personally love any gathering where more than 70% of the audience is Somali
you guys are some serious So mine is my what's up what's going on? And some serious Somalis.
Somali people are the best man. True or false.
Look, let me tell you, Somalis. They're the best people I always say this the best after the Sudanese they're great people. Mashallah, Mashallah.
Mashallah, excellent. Okay.
renewing your a man right refreshing your A man was was the the topic of the lecture. And
for everyone, the scholars say part of having good Eman is that you always monitor your EMA part of having good demand. As you monitor your Eman, it drops you do something to bring it up, you know, and stays up, it goes up, you try to find a way to maintain it to keep it up as well. And everyone has a different thing. That what is the fastest thing to uplift you're a man. Everyone has something different. And for some people, one of the fastest ways to bring the amount up is to read the Quran. Yeah. And there are people actually who monitor the amount like this and it drops and they open the book of Allah and they read and and and they contemplate what Allah Subhana Allah is saying and that
is for many people one of the fastest ways to have your Iman rise immediately inshallah and because of that, because of that point, we want to actually today to look into the meanings of some of the verses in the book of Allah is diligent. And we understand that Mashallah lot of alkaline this Masjid, there are a lot of people who are a fall or who are becoming a fourth on their way to becoming a father. And because of that is very appropriate that we start to understand more and more what Allah azza wa jal is saying, because that's the whole point of the Quran, isn't it, that we understand the message that allows what l is saying to us. And it's not necessarily memorizing.
If you, for example, when you if there's a young man, and he's memorizing the Quran, and at some point, he finds himself memorizing without knowing what's being said, I'll tell you the truth. And I've, when I lived in Canada, I met with a number of and do work. And now number of her followers, who were who went astray and he went astray. Yeah. Because in the end, the Quran that he memorized is not going to guard him or protect him if he doesn't know what it's saying. Yeah, I met this.
This lady, she a young girl, she memorized the Quran at age 12. And we met her at age 17. She had left Islam for example. Yeah. And so it's so important that what you're doing is wise as if you're young, especially, you're taking advantage of the Golden Age, golden years of memorization, you memorize, and now that you've got it memorized, it's not over yet. Now you understand what I was saying to you. So today we wanted to look at some of the verses insert a note. Now if you're able to grab almost half if you have one in your device, just turn on your your Koran, and we'll go together from verse 11 in North surah number 24. Okay, and if you don't have some kind of electronic Quran
everyone has electronic if you don't have one get up and get pick one must have from there. We won't look at you don't worry.
Either the more serious group of Somalis I've seen in my life. What's going on? What happened here? They don't have good bananas, Denmark or what?
You know something when I go to Toronto, there is a famous Somali restaurant in Toronto from the airport. I go straight to that restaurant. Let me tell you something people everybody loves oh how you eat banana with you try bananas with do with this spaghetti one time I lost.
Everyone ready everyone have them must have
their, their electronic Quran. Everyone's looking at so to know, verse 11, Chapter 24 verse 11.
Okay, while you get it, we'll tell the quickly we're gonna go briefly through the story related to these verses that were
going to look at these are the verses of the if the incident that is known as the incident of will, which is the slander or the lie against eyeshadow della Juana.
Now, this happened in about the fifth or sixth year after the hijra
the process alum went on a visa
process and went on a visa on an expedition for battle to meet with a vendor who is the leader of is the chief of the tribe of women Mr luck on that trip
he takes with him I shot of the law the personal unfinished from the reservoir and on the way back, they kept marching non stop.
And on the way back, the the the stop at a resting place an answer of the law Anna narrates this incident
narrates the incident herself in a long Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari but we're going to just take certain points and certain parts of the story. So she's returning they're returning the Army's returning back to Medina. Hey, well, thank you very much. They're returning back to Medina.
and, and basically and they stopped now this is they made a rest stop. And this is going to go through all the spectrums of echo now.
Now, so they made the resting stuff, and they announced that it's time to leave so when
it's time to leave now. So I tend to leave, we're going to march so everyone go to the bathroom, finish whatever you need to do. She says I went far away from the camp from the army finished the call of nature and it's nighttime now. And I returned back when I reached the army again, I touched my neck. And I found that a necklace of mine had fallen. And she even mentioned the type of beads it was made from and all the details on the story. her necklace had fallen. So she went back to look for it. And she said my search for it detained me. In the meantime, the army, they thought that I was inside the Hoda or how doege in Arabic or Sudan, Sudan or Hoda in English, which is a box that
has like curtains around it. And the woman would get inside this box and they'll pick it up, put it on the back of the camel, and they would march. That's how the woman used to travel. Now she was a young girl during this trip. So she was about 13 years old. So she was and she says I was a small girl and women were thin those days because we didn't eat much she said, so the men for strong men, they didn't realize how light the holder was. They just took it put on the back of the candle they thought she was inside, which shows you their good manners. They didn't check and see and slammed You ready? Bismillah there's nothing wrong with saying that. But they're adept with the wife of the
President. So they put it on the back of the camera. Everybody got up and left. She I'm searching for the camera. By the time I found for the necklace. By the time I found it came back and I found the army had gone. So then she says I sat in the same place hoping they will come back and find me now because she's smart. When you're smart. You wait for your party at the same the last place where we were all together. If you're not smart, you go looking for them. When they come looking for you. You're somewhere else looking for them. But she waited in the same place. She said then I was overwhelmed by sleep and I slept anything strange about this story. anything strange here that she
is not strange. You know if you want to feel the narration always put yourself in the place of the narrator. Yeah, or the person that's experiencing the situation. So it is strange. She's 13 years old. Pitch Black Desert. And what comes out at night in the desert, scorpions. You've got snakes, hyenas, and she has no tent. No weapon, no cave dust it just flat desert. Who would who in here would sleep in a flat desert like this? pitch black, you just sleep? You don't sleep. You stay up all night. Any noise you hear Who was that? Go away. No sleep. You sleep like this. You wake up there's a hyena looking at you. And your face is not normal. So there's the scholars say, anytime
you sleep in a difficult situation is proof of assistance from Allah azza wa jal. That's what Allah subhanaw taala specifically mentioned sleep during the Battle of better and the companion said he would fall asleep in the sword would fall from his hand and he'd pick it up, then it will fall again he would pick it up and it fall again. So Allah specifically mentioned the sleep to show you because they should be worried when you're stressed. You stay up, you don't sleep, but they slept as assistance from Allah zildjian.
This doesn't mean that if you're studying for your exam until three in the morning, and you start to feel sleepy, it means you're getting assistance from a lot of
you guys man. Let's go
Not long there. Okay.
Anyways, she says in the morning, so one of the Mokbel as well, I mean, at the colony, he was he came and he used to be behind the army. And some scholars say that the Muslim would tell him to be behind the army and he picked up last items. But the most popular is that he's to oversleep. And it's no big deal when he wakes up whenever he wakes up, you know, he's a grown man who knows the way he starts making his way to Medina. So he saw the finger of a sleeping person from a distance. And when he got close, he recognized it was Arusha. And she said, he recognized me because he had seen me before the eye of hijab was revealed. So he recognized there because he saw before the if. And
when he saw that it was the wife of the person.
He said in our in a Rajon, which is what you say, when something bad happens, because now she's in the middle of the desert. They left her Yeah. So when when he said that, she said, I woke up and the first thing she did immediately, she said, I immediately covered my face. And then she says, Well, luckily, he did not say a single word to me after that. He just let his camel kneel down. And she got on the camel and he started bleeding the karma towards Medina. If he would have said anything, it wouldn't have been harder. If he would have said Subhana Allah What happened? Or Bismillah he already or will go Hold on. He could have said anything, anything wrong with that. Nothing wrong
with that. But he didn't say a single word some scholars say. So one of the one who he kind of guessed. something would happen. That's why he never said a word. Yeah. And it's clear. He thought it might it's clear, someone might say something. So he said we didn't speak. We didn't say a single word. And then we overtook the army at the last resting place before Medina. Then look at what she said. When the sun went during extreme heat of midday. The extreme heat of midday, this is when they made it to the army, the army was resting, and he comes with his camera with eyelashes on it. And he comes all the way to in front of the army in front of the camp or attempt of the process Allah, he
drops her off and he moves on. She says we returned to Medina, and I feel ill for a full month, whole month she's sick. And she didn't know that people were talking about her because one of the leader of the hypocrites, I'm the lead no babe in the saloon, the leader of the hypocrites. When he saw a show on the camera of SFX one, he said,
Well, I shot and so one will law he was not safe from her and she was not safe from him. And you know what he's hinting at? Yes or no?
Wow. Not a single person did this not one person.
Thank you. You must be from Sweden or something.
Going on people late neither. Okay.
So you understand what he said or not? What he's hinting to. He's hinting to something.
So but he didn't explicitly say anything. He didn't say this happened. He just said he will not say from her and she wasn't safe from him. Yeah. Or he got something from her. She got something from him. Then I just I was sick for a month and I didn't know this rumor spreading. And when I finally got Well, after the room, my illness got after one month I get well again. I went out with a Mr. misdiagnosis moussaka, this is a man but there is someone who attended better and he was also related to a blue book. So he said I went out with Oh Mr. To outside where we relieve ourselves. This is like the bathrooms and then she explained when you can tell in the narration that she's
talking to a generation later on because she's talking about in those days we used to have bathrooms far from the houses and then now that we have houses near the near the bed, she's the city had changed you can tell in the narration. So she said we used to go out at night in men new people can't see you at night we go out at night answer the call of nature and they didn't have to go into the bathroom too much they'd very limited those days. He said on the way back the mother of Mr. almost fell. she stumbled like this. He she got tangled in her in her clothes, almost fell on her face. And she said Teresa Mr. let Mr. be ruined. So I she was shocked. She said some opportunity to
Sabina Rajan and shea butter. What a horrible thing. You've said you curse a man who attended better. So. So Mr. teleSUR? Yeah, Hanta and it means you way over there. Why way over there? Because it means you don't know what's going on. You're like far from what's happening. He said, Didn't you hear what he said? I should say what he said. And then she told her the story and the slander against her so
abbreviating the story. Now. As she said, my illness suddenly got worse. And she cried for two nights and a day without she said, My tears never stopped once, and I never stopped crying once, two nights and a day, non stop, because this is the woman's reputation, which is the most valuable thing to a woman, her reputation, the most valuable thing to a woman, which is interesting. Now, a lot of countries they claim the secure woman's rights, but they have no punishment if someone attacks a woman's reputation. Well, in Islam, it's a very serious thing. Very serious thing. Now, and that's why Mariam alayhis salam, Maria, Maria, when you breathe comes to her and gives her a fantastic news
of an incredible and great and blessed prophet that she's going to give birth to him. What's her concern?
What was her concern? Any other woman? her concern will be really, when is the due date, and let's do the baby shower and get the clothes ready. That's her concern. But Maria money center, her concern was, how am I going to explain this to people? her reputation was number one. And that's a lie. Unbelievable. And he is giving you such glad tidings. And her concern is, wait a minute, How do I explain this to people? I'm not married, and people gonna think something bad of me. That was her concern. Somebody pretend you're moved.
That's that's how you pretend you move.
And he's the only one who reacted by the way, by
the serum. And let me tell you something when you do when you do tafsir you need some Egyptian people who have any gyptians in here? Yes. But you're alone, too. You need to give some people because you've seen people they know how to react when they hear to listen to different chef giving to circus, he says something deep and 500 minutes that La La La Liga and hug immediately. You need Egyptians in the room when you do to sit. So the point is, I fell ill and she and she began to cry if it's for two days for two nights and a day. And the Prophet said law, he defended her. He stood on the member and he defended her. He says I know a lot. I know nothing except good about my family.
And they accuse a man about whom I know nothing except good. And he never entered my home except with me. So he's defending her defending stuff, one. And then
the ayat defending our show are revealed from verse 11, instruct and nor until verse 21. And then again from verse 23, and to verse 26.
And when the verses show the innocence of Arusha, from 11 to 21, Abu Bakar said, Well, I'll never give Mr. Money again. Mr. Was his relative, and the muhajir. And the poor person. And since they came to Medina, abubaker would give him money. And he gives him money constantly, so he can live because he's poor. And after all, this, Mr. explicitely accused the daughter of obachan explicitly, so but he was very upset. And he said, Well, ah, I'll never give Mr. Anything after this. He said this about Elijah, and unless that she's innocent, and now,
I'm not going to give him any more. So in verse 22, as we will see, Allah says, Don't swear to not give the poor and the margerine and and you're in your kinsmen. And let me let you let them pardon and forgive forgive him, partly, and continue giving him so book and said, Well, I'll never stop giving Mr. Half to this. Now, wait a minute. He just said, well, law, hey, I'm never going to give him then the I came, they said, Well, I'm never gonna stop giving him giving him. And then, in generation bharatavani, he doubled the amount because this abubaker no joke. He doubled the amount and then he said, I will never stop giving any until I die. He will keep getting this money from me.
And he doubled it. Notice that he swore. And then a few minutes later change the oath. Yeah. So of course, the LEM said, Jani. If one of you makes an oath, you swear by Allah, and you find something better than it. Then expiate for this oath, and do what is better? And don't forget if it's hard on, if it's if you make an oath, we'll look, we'll do this, then you find something better to do? experience for this, make the cathedra and do the one that's better. This is if it's better. Forget if it's Haram. If it's Haram, you don't have to do it. You expiate immediately. Yeah, so two brothers had to fight. This brother got so angry, so we'll let him get a good brother Hassan. Yeah,
I'm gonna come back next time. I'm gonna kill him. Then after three days, he calmed down. He's happy. He's at the restaurant, eating his kebab. Then he says brother Hassan. Oh, well, I know I'm not angry. But I said well, I
so he goes to the the cook have big nice
If I just one minute I just need to borrow, huh? No, you leave it because it's haram right?
So Allah subhanaw taala then showed the innocence of it and we want to go over these ayat because what would what we'll do is you will see when you look at the wording, Allah Subhana Allah uses here and these if you will see to what level a large region is defending Arusha it's so powerful and it's so strong. And the rules and the and the lessons that came from this story, they affect every believing woman today and every believing man today as well. The punishment for slander to accuse someone without evidence, you don't have evidence, then that person is innocent and not guilty. So we'll go from verse 11. inshallah together, allows it gives his other limestone regime in Lavina
Jaya obon iski Ross bottom minko Lata Sabu Sharon Lacan, Ben who are highroller luckily Maria Minho. mcta Saba Mina isn't one lady told lucky but a woman whom the who don't
So Allah Subhana Allah says in Allah Xena verily those who, who came forth, Bill, if key with the US bottom income, or a group from amongst you. Now, let's look at the words here. We said in the levina. Those who barely those who just came forth with or brought forth. And if Now, notice, Allah didn't call it call it a lie here. He called it an if there's not a direct word for if in English, but an IF is the worst kind of lie. Not notice now something about lying. A lie is when what is said doesn't match reality. A lie is when what is said doesn't match reality. And the news can be a lie. But the most the one giving you the news is honest. It's possible. Someone might tell you something
that was said doesn't match the reality. He didn't intend to lie. The news is a lie. But the man in truth is honest. Yeah. And the lie can have some truth in it. And like and have some truth in it. Yeah. So
first of all,
when a lie we said there's one of what is said doesn't match reality. And that's why the the early Muslims, the Arabs, these to use the word kidnapped to mean you're wrong. You remember the Battle of boyhood, when I was young came and he stood at the base of the mountain, and he yelled out the courage really thought they killed Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and they really thought they could overcome and they really believe they killed the ummah. So he stood at the base of the mountain when the Muslims ran and hit up hit in the mountain of Ohio. He yelled to them is Mohammed amongst you. And the President said don't answer is I will book amongst you is Omar amongst you. Then he said as
for those three, we have certainly rid you of them. Yeah, he wasn't lying. He really thought they killed all three of them. Especially when they didn't answer. So um, I couldn't take it anymore. And he tells him Yeah, I do Allah. kidnapped means what? We said, you're wrong or any movie. He didn't say, You lie. He wasn't trying to lie, but the way they used it, it meant you're wrong. And that's why there's a narration where they were checking a hadith with Arusha. And they told her about her arrow said this this listener and she said, cares about Abu hurayrah Katha Baba Herrera means what?
is wrong, mistaken. Now we have some people who come and say you see these people who hate the Howdy. You see the biggest narrative Hadith and he said he's a liar? No, she said he was wrong. She didn't say he's a liar. But we're saying you're liars. Yeah. Because you know, this is not the truth.
Now this is the line. Now here's give you an example. The difference between a lie and then if there's a big difference in the fact that Allah use this word if shows you how Allah is defending Ayesha, a lie can have some truth in it. So for example, I say
is there a brother What summon here are some words brother Watson, huh? And it was Allah. I just made up the name and I thought there will be what I'm doing now.
He's like, How does he know me? So I tell you by the word Santa, he has a very gentle cat.
Very gentle cat. The truth is, Brother What? Simon's Cat is not gentle. It's a very vicious cat. So I'm lying. Is there some truth in my lie, though? What's the truth? He has a cat. So you see the lie can have some truth in it. So he has a cat, but it's a vicious cat. It's not a gentle cat. That part of the story was wrong, but this part was right. A lie can have some truth in it. But then if he has no
Sign of truth in it whatsoever in Arabic You say Africa shade either Canada who animoji ethic turned it around 100% flipped it over. And you see this flipped over thing. You see Allah subhanaw taala called the villages of, of loot will he called it the village of loot. When toughie kata
and what Africa what he called an Africa remember the story? Stay with me the story was what? The angel flipped it around. So Allah call it an Africa you see if
you see that somebody's not Thank you. So if has no sign of truth in it whatsoever.
And then and that's what Allah called it if Do you see how powerful that is? Yeah, that Allah chose a word because the lie can have some truth in it. And if a law called a lie, some crazy person will say I wish it's a lie, but there's some truth but a law called it is completely reversed. completely flipped. There's no sign of truth whatsoever. Some Egyptian guys do something.
this is strong or lie, you see you feel this. Huh? Oh, my God, it's cold here. What's happening? You feel it? is very strong layer. Maybe I'm just easily impressed that maybe that's the problem and the problem, not you.
In the levina Joe Lubin, if kios bottom income
group, yeah, we've seen this elsewhere in the Quran. We're at a nominal uzima in Nevada. Hola, todos, los COVID you've heard this before, about a group from amongst you as well to minco Why minko? Why from you? Yeah, yeah, any muscle Bona alikum they're counted as part of you. Not another group, not from another place from within the believers from within this community.
Sabu Sharon laku don't think of it as a bad thing for you. But who are higher on lakum how's it a good thing? This incident an accusation like this against the wife of the prophet to la sala How is this a good thing for you? A lot of good came from this story. The rulings the court rulings that affect every one of us in the room today. Yeah. came from out of this story. The loss of hunter Allah defending his earlier shot of one of a worker his wife, the process lm all these were people who are affected by this Yeah, so all these benefits came from this incident. So don't think of it as a bad thing for you. But who are higher on local
local lemare imin home Makita subliminal liquid link for each in marine mark is a man liquidity marine for each man from amongst them, min home Makita Saba min and if what he earned of sin, each man who said something against Ayesha he will get what he earned of sin. Notice here Allah Subhana Allah says mcheza not mad Kesava. And there's a difference between Kassab an extra sub caste shows that the thing was done with the ease and without difficulty. And it typically shows more effort and more energy being put into something. And because of that, this is really amazing. Yeah, because of that Allah azza wa jal uses Kassab and Kesava for the Highlander, and he uses except for the hot on
my oven on Homer Luma. Casa why Casa? Because he got his money easily. Well, easy. Yeah, hello. But accessibe has difficulty in it. And you know, the harm you do. When you do the harm. You have to put effort into it. You don't do it calmly. And casually. For example, if you know if you have any friend who's a smoker, did they just smoke like this in front of their father? No, they're very creative people. Yeah, the smokers there, they check wind direction, which was Yeah. Which was the wind going, they have mints in their car in their pocket. They have colognes everywhere. They have maybe change of clothing, and they're very careful nobody's to wash their face before they go in the
house. There. Why? Because they're, it's a sin. They're hiding it. So they have to put energy when you do the halali do it very calm. very commonly. Yeah. And scholars give a very nice example using the cat. Do you have your house cat? Yeah. And by the way, I mean, you have a cat for real or not. Okay.
That's why when you say you know, brother what someone has a very gentle cat and he doesn't have a cat. And he doesn't like cats and he's allergic to cats. And he never in his life. One of the cat. Now you know, in life, big difference.
if you have a captain who has a captain home, put your hands up.
Okay, two cats in the room. Okay.
Now when you give your your eating dinner and the cat comes to the table, and you take a piece of chicken and you give it to the cat, what happens? Even if you don't have a cat, you know what will happen? The cat will just casually eat the chicken. Right? You gave it to the cat nice and holler. You throw it down and just eat it right there. Now what happens if you prepare your food and you go to get something and you come back and the cat steals a piece of chicken? What does it do?
Does it sit there casually at the table? Who puts napkins?
How does it eat this chicken?
Now, very quickly, and where does he eat the chicken?
Take a guess.
Yeah, in height, it runs away. So when it steals the meat, it takes it and run somewhere and it quickly swallows it down. But when you give it to it halon it eats it right there. You understand what we're saying? Like even animals they understand when they do the haraam. They did have to run and eat it and do but when it's hollow, it just eats the chicken asks you for another one now.
But when it steals it, it runs away and each there doesn't it doesn't come back anytime soon. Yeah, even animals notice. That's what Allah uses Excel, which shows effort for that haraam. When we choose it's done with ease for the holiday, because the holiday we do it with ease with no shame without hiding it. You could liberate a min home Makita Cybermen and for each man amongst them what he earned of sin.
When levita woodleigh, Kibera home in home, la hora de buen. avi. And as for the one who has the greatest share of this, who does this mean? I'm the lead innovativeness. And the leader of the hypocrites, he started it. Not only that he started, he said in his first statement, and then he would go after that. And every time he would sit with a gathering, he brings up the issue. And you guys hear what people are saying about Russia and so forth. Then he people start talking about it. Then he goes and sits in another part of the city, hey, you hear what people are saying. He let it spread, and let people talk about it. And he got the biggest share of the sin. But he never said,
explicitly Zina or fornication or anything he never said explicitly. So what happens? The believers because everyone started talking about it, good believers explicitly use the word and guess who they were. They were misdiagnosed Arthur, who is a man who attended better, which is a big deal, but three, and his son Agnes Abbott, who is the poet of the prophets of Allah Salah, and have never been to judge the sister of Xena been to judge the wife of the Prophet Allah. So believers fell into it. And the hypocrite got away as they say, right? Well, let's see if he really got away.
And by the way, Annie,
even though these these believers got in, made this mistake, and slander is a major sin, to accuse a chaste woman of something like that. It's a major sin. And even though it's a major sin, there was still a part of the community. They were still respected after that. They were still forgiven after that. And this is exactly the opposite of how we are today. Today's one makes a small mistake, Carlos. Don't accept anything from him. Don't give him Salah. Don't Have you made a mistake, man. One mistake, or he said one thing you don't like 30 years in the community. He does good only. And then one time he made the mistake. Because it is one thing. cancel out. 30 years of good work. All
the 30 is just gone now. Forget it. What do we say here? Yeah. A decal. We're not
in a capsule. So
don't mess around.
major sins here. Okay.
Liquid Lymbery. Minho. mctominay isn't one lady told me no. One. Here it's talking about delivering the baby sort of the one who had the greatest share. Now this is what this is what you can say. You say you see the three believers got punished. They got the whipping for slander at each and hypocrite got away. No, don't look at it like that. Look at it in a different way because we focus on the ACA, right? Look at it this way. The three believers got purified from the sin in the dunya. And the hypocrite Allah is promising him severe torment and they are. Does it sound like he got away now?
It doesn't sound like he got away. If you only think of the dunya you think he got away? But we there's an Acura. Yeah, there's another case of another judgment. So he doesn't sound like he got away when Allah puts a verse in his book, threatening you. He didn't get away and the believers got purified. That's the better way of looking at it. In verse number 12, Allah Subhana Allah says, Lola is similar to Moo hoo, one minute to be unforeseen Hira, wakad ohada. If kumeu been so strong, Lola, it's similar to most similar
More or less tomorrow sama is hearing similar to more when you heard it. So why didn't you or you should have when you heard it this news one minute one is what you should have thought to yourselves. One is internal. This is how you feel now this is what I think. me No No, me not the believing men and women they should have thought be unfussy him Clara be unfussy him. Now this is amazing this word be unfussy him your neffs. yourself, your soul also yourself. Be I'm forcing him this same word that means each other It means themselves. One more time. The word in Arabic for themselves is the same word for each other.
Anything amazing there
anything amazing or less amazing? Yeah. Because this is the Unity This is how I was telling you you're one group, the word that means each other is the same word for yourself. Someone amazed.
I'm going to leave after a little bit Come on people, life's amazing athlete, unless you know this and you just heard it two minutes ago. Amazing or what?
Okay, well, that's amazing people. Yeah. So they should have thought well of themselves. Actually, they should have thought well of each other, vana. Internally, they sort of should have thought and movement on one minute believing men and women be unfortunately him of themselves or each other. Pharaoh should have thought, well, verse 12, is amazing, because Allah is telling you, this is how you should have reacted. And the reaction covers internal and external, we'll call her the if you don't move in. And they should have said that this is it's gonna, obviously, the you know, the advocates of a lie that has no sign of truth in it whatsoever. Moving moving means what?
Clear, right? Something that's been by Gina, moo been clear, but you're not, you know, move by unit. By unit. All it means clear. So the belief that this was amazing what this verse is, it's telling you internally and externally how you should have reacted. Externally, you should have said, this is a clear lie. Why is it a clear lie? Why is it a clear lie? And not just Is it a very strong, but it's a clear lie? Why? Because it casually came in, what do we say about the sun? It was in the extreme heat of midday, that means the sun is out. And they came casually in front of the whole army. And she was on his camel. And he drops her off at in front of her husband. Does this show
guilt? This is how guilty people behave. Guilty people behave in a different way. And if there's any guilt, okay, you go to the city now, and I'll come next week. We don't enter together. sahana I'll come next week. I want to come now. Yeah. And when you come in, you look at looking around looking at people's faces feeling guilty. When you commit a sin. You feel guilty about it. Yeah. Like this joke about the man who came home. And he's very hungry. He heard a chicken in his neighbor's house. No, mosquito jumped over the wall, grab the chicken brought it over here, slaughtered it. Took the feathers out cooked it had a great dinner. In the morning, who's going to work? neighbors watch
season. She said good morning, man. He said what? Chicken woman?
Cuz he feels guilty. Yeah. When you're guilty. You think everyone's looking at you? You think everyone knows what you did? someone looks at your heart a little bit?
You're guilty? Very much. Yeah. So if they were guilty, would they walk casually in front of everyone? The sun is out in front of the whole army and drop her off in front of her husband's house. Now, will you want to put this in modern terms for you?
Yeah. What are the age groups here want to make sure.
That's like a woman, as we say cheating with another man on her husband. And then she gets in that man's car and he drops her off in front of her husband just like this when the sun is out. Would that happen? Never. So you should have said this is a clear lie. Look how innocent they're behaving innocently. They're behaving. Get it? So that is amazing. Because it tells you how you should have reacted externally and how you should have felt internally because I might defend the brother very well, externally, but in my heart, I think he did it. Yeah, I just don't have witnesses. So brothers in law, don't say this about him. Leave him alone. But internally, I know this guy. Not here unless
it's internally alternate externally. This is how your action should have been. Verse 13 Lola jell O Allah He barbati Shahada for Islamia to be Shahada for Oda en de la homolka de boon. So why didn't they
Lola, Lola Jo la Why didn't they bring forth for this accusation, br Bharati or bias for Shahada, any witnesses? Why didn't they bring forth four witnesses for this accusation? You know, if you're going to accuse someone of doing something immoral, you have to bring four witnesses who saw it happening very clearly. And if you don't, then you're the liar. This is the problem. But look what Allah says for Islamia to be Shahada, if they don't bring the four witnesses then what's the problem? For una chica en de la hueman caribou? For hula? The word una, it shows that they're far. I want you to notice the distancing language here. I love to say didn't say for in a home for Allah.
Because Allah puts them far from himself. How dare you accuse a woman like this? You see how strong that is? Yeah, for una chica en de la human Kathy born in the beginning of the surah. It didn't say in the law. you accuse a woman. Yeah. Or a man accused his wife. It doesn't say in the law with a law he's a liar. Because maybe in the religion of Allah, according to the court, he's lying. But he knows between him and Allah, his speaking the truth. Yeah, you see a man committing a sin. And you don't have three other witnesses with you. So if I go to court by myself, the court will judge that I'm lying True or false? Yeah. But between me and Allah, am I lying? No, I'm speaking the truth. But
here Allah said, with Allah, they're liars. What is so amazing about that? It leaves no room for them. And no room for anyone later to say, yes, they were lying because in the courtroom, they didn't have enough witnesses. But in reality, not no reality here are listed with a lot. They're liars.
Verse 14, when Allah Allahu alikum, warahmatu dunya will era lemma soccom FEMA a *ton fee either one of them. And you will see in certain are a number of times, lo when Oh la, la la la la la, la la alikum warahmatu COVID dunya. When you see it multiple times you see it in verse number 10. You see in verse 14, you see in verse 20, you see in verse 21, had it not been for the grace of Allah and His mercy upon you, you see it a number of times. Why? Because the surah the surah is mentioning mentioning punishments. And if the sort of mentioned punish this and punish this and punish this, you might think it's harsh. So purposely alleged reminding you multiple times in it that had it not
been for the mercy of Allah for the grace of Allah. So you don't think it's just punishment all the time? And that there is mercy in this punishment or in this ruling? Yeah.
So AlphaGo Yani like the the grace or the gracious Grace of Allah, Allah come upon you what our motto and his mercy fifth dunya will Earth era in this dunya and in the next life lemmas succumb and not mess the home. Yeah, lemme Samia and the punishment would have touched you. It didn't touch you, but it would have touched you. And it came close to the genie lemon, lemon circle, FEMA fog tone fee either would have been
a severe torment would have touched you concerning what you rushed into. An
effort to be a father is when you rush into something without stopping. So Allah is saying to the believers, and it was saying that you rushed into this incident without stopping to think, to contemplate to ask yourself without the benefit of the doubt, without defending you just rushed a frog to keep rushing into it. Either one Alvin a great tournament a severe tournament would have touched you concerning what you just rushed into.
Verse 15, very very powerful if teleco No, we LC unethical. What takuna bf y como la sala can be here in Savannah hyena wahoo en de la de is telecon o be unseen. Attila T is receiving. How do you receive things? How do you receive news?
How do you receive news with what body part? Your ear? Right? You received the news with your ear, don't you? Yeah. So Allah says it's the lacuna when you received it, all of you when you received it, then he didn't say with your ears. BLC genetical and the sun is the tongue, elsina tongues and center to comb your tongues. What does that mean? When Allah says when you received it with your tongues? Why received with your tongues? What does that explain to us? What do you get?
He's taught he's calling to answer the the question.
Come on, you guys. What does it mean? You received it with your tongue? What's the visual? It's not as complicated as you I think all of you are thinking of
The answer someone hand was up back there.
More than one. And you're correct. But why would the lesser you receive it with your your tongues and not with the ears? What's the visual you get? It's very simple. It's not as complicated as your thinking is, it's what you're thinking.
You receive it with your tongue. Now
Eva. So it shows that you didn't think about it. You just you didn't look when you receive news, it goes to your ear. You think about it before it comes out of your mouth again, but you received it with the same instrument that will push it out. So what does that tell you? You didn't think and you quickly spread it. And instead of going through here, and then coming down here and coming out here, this is the visual everyone look, this is a visual. Here's the news. back straight, the same instrument that's gonna bounce it back came here and when you get it, you didn't think about it didn't process it didn't digest it just came to your tongue and you spread it out immediately.
That's why I said you must as you receive it with your tongues. You see how strong that is? Yeah. So Allah subhanaw taala says, in teleco when you receive this news, be elsina trichome with your tongues with the full Luna and you say be FYI come with your mouth. Man a Salah can be here. You said with your mouth what you have no knowledge of meaning no certain knowledge of meaning you're just spreading this rumor hearsay without certainty without witnesses without anything
without the buena hyena well who are in the law having and you consider it high in what's high in something that's easy. Something that's light no big deal. You consider that something easy, something light, but with Allah who are in the law, he are the with Allah. It's great. Something severe. And you think it's just something easy? Yeah. Everyone with me? Unless we're getting bogged down sisters You with me? Yeah. So this is similar to a Hadith of the Prophet said lamb.
Casasola in Norwegian. They are the cardinal bill can MIT bill Can you met him in southie la la. De La Habana. Oh, instead, a man will speak a word that will anger Allah xojo Yeah, layer three Mata blowgun one nation La La La La Habana that he doesn't know how far this word will reach. It's a word that angers Allah. And he doesn't know how far it will reach in another generation. He gives it no attention. You say something that angers Allah. You don't give it any attention? What happens with this word that angers Allah? And maybe saw Selim describes that it will cause the person to fall into the Hellfire? How deep is he gonna fall in the Hellfire of Hellfire abroad? Am I being a semi a
longer than the distance between the heavens and the earth? What's the distance between the heavens and the earth? Incredible distance, he will fall this distance into the Hellfire
from a sentence that he doesn't give much attention to, and it angers a large soldier. And that's why it will hurt the long run. He asked the process. What are the two things that lead people to the Hellfire and the porcelain said and FOMO? Well, first of all, the mouth and the sexual organs. Yeah.
then verse 16, what Allah is similar to Moo hoo, hoo fulltone, Maja kulana and netta kalama, Bihar de subhanak, ohada, Bhutan and Avi and against verse 16. Again, is telling how you should have reacted. You should have what odor it's similar to mobile you should have when you heard this news, or why didn't you when you hear this news? called tone? What do you say? My akuna Elena and Nicola bajada. We shouldn't speak of such we shouldn't speak of something like this. subhanak Yeah. And you say this in time of amazement. Yeah. So panic. Her the baton of him. This is an obvious lie. Yeah, or a great light. Okay, here Allah COVID Botha earlier he called it if what, why is it wise Allah
changing names now? Yeah. And the scholars say when you change when you give many different names to something, it shows you how serious something is. Yeah. If you say Okay, brother, this is.
This is a scandal. This is a scandal. Yeah. What if I say this is scandal. This is treachery. This is betrayal. This the more words I give a lot a lot What's going on here? This is serious. But if I said brothers is scandal, this is scandal. Yeah. And treachery and betrayal and this is backed by this is backstabbing, this is Yeah. The more words you the way you describe something this it shows. It's serious.
Everybody okay? Yeah.
Should we just stop and tell jokes or what?
I think this is better, isn't it? Okay.
whenever it's time to move on to my akuna unethical behavior, it's not possible for us to it's not proper for us to speak of such
as in Baton, grand, great liar, great light. And I'll give it another name here. Then, verse 17 is unbelievable. Listen up everybody. Verse 17, a lot of yours says your elbow qumola and ODU limits Lee Abba in quantum meaning.
Unbelievable. You will mean
Yeah, it will come lower. Does it mean Yeah, it will come. If you translate it directly, it means Allah admonishes you. And like, gives you an admonition Yeah. And like a warning, when Allah admonishes you, what does it mean or low warns you What does it mean? If not best said means Allah makes haram for you. Yeah. Makes haram for you or forbids you. So Allah forbids you. And to do that you return allowed as a returned and to do that you return limit Li Avada
to something like this, ever again. So it's not saying that Allah is making hard on for you to, to say this story about Ayesha again, no, to repeat any anything like this again. You know what that means? sisters.
You know what that means? This verse 17, means that in any time in history, for any woman of this oma, no one is ever to accuse her of doing something immoral. If they don't have witnesses, if they don't have any proof if she's a chaste individual, ever. He didn't say don't ever mention the story of Elijah again. He said, Don't you ever do the same thing? Again? You understand the difference? Because Subhanallah today, there are people who try to mention the story of Ayesha again and accused her again.
How crazy is that?
Crazy? Yeah, crazy. And
after all, this defense, and they tried to open the story again and accuse it again. Allah didn't say Don't you dare accuse Ayesha again. Allah said Don't you dare accuse any woman again don't Allah makes haram for you to accuse any woman again? And they go crazier than that they went to Cuba is all over again. I don't we don't use any woman. They said no, no, we're not doing any woman. We're picking this very special woman.
Will you be in a local IRA will love our demon Hakeem and Allah mix the ayah to begin la comunidad. So Allah makes the ayat clear for you if means what here?
What else could it be?
I told you read me an ayah What will you do with me when I have from the Quran
verse, right. So that's it verse only, because not sign Allah did mention a sign here. Did he mentioned the sign
mountains and clouds and he mentioned any science, fruits, anything? No. So it means I am an alarmist. It is clear for you. Well Lucha de mon Hakeem. And Allah is all knowing all wise in the Libyan oh my goodness, verse 19, is so powerful in an levina you a boon and the Shia alpha to fillerina armano lumada when removed with Daniela Farah, will La Jolla La la la la listen to this verse, everyone in the LA Vina you a boon hug is love you have gone verily those who love Auntie she alpha Aisha that the what's the fascia anytime you see the word fat in the Quran, it means
it's referring to any immoral sexual activity. Okay, those who love that the fascia, the sheer spreads fillerina armineh those who love that the flower Hush, no fascia spreads amongst the believers, Allah is promising them severe punishment.
Filipina lumada gonna remove it, for them will be a severe painful torment in this world and in the next world. Now, first 19 scholars say in verse 19 is to hareem a charlatan, meaning to spread the immoral activity to incident of zinno and fornication. The scholars have a very nice saying they say they say manakala alpha heisha four of hush The one who spread the fascia. He is a hash. What does that mean?
when someone does something haram like that, so a man or a woman they did something haha and maybe
They were in love. Maybe there was their desire overtook them. Now, they're, you know, in the heat of the moment, whatever they call it these days. And when they were in this state, the man was weakened, and they were blinded by their desires and their lust, and they fell into the fascia. Why are you spreading it? And they were in this crazy drunken state, then you come and use credit to everybody
that would make you more profane than them harsh, worse than they are. Why would you do that? First of all, it's a sin. Instead of concealing the faults of your brother and your sister you want and you want to embarrass them. And it's an ugly sin, and you want everybody to hear about it. And it's an ugly sin and instead of keeping it to yourself, you're going around talking about this ugly sin spreading it making it more popular and and spread around the city. That's why they say man knuckle in Fallujah, for who have Hush. So those who love to spread the fascia. Yeah, this one explanation. Another group of scholars said this verse, verse number 19, means those not those who spread it. I
didn't take part in spreading it. I stood back, and I never opened my mouth about it. You understand? Everyone follow? sisters? Listen? Yeah, this is very deep stuff, man. Listen.
So those not those who take part in it. Now those who help and help it spread or type it out or share it on Facebook or Twitter or what No, no, no, not those guys. Those who just sit back and have nothing to do with it. But they just love that it's spreading.
Understand who was threatening here
you see how serious this is. It was not threatening those who spread it on the share it on Facebook, and Twitter and WhatsApp it and all that stuff. Allah is threatening those who just love for it to spread and they didn't spread it. That's one explanation. And that's deep. Get it?
So, for them will be a severe punishment, the home either one day, or a painful tournament in this dunya this life and Phil occur and the next life as well. will love We are number one and two Latin, Amman and Allah knows and you don't know. So what does it mean when Allah says Allah knows and you don't know. Some of them have a student says it means return the matter to Allah and you will be guided.
If Allah knows, and you don't know, what should you do? And in any situation in life, your car breaks down. The brother with you is a mechanic. He opens the hood. He knows how to fix the car and you don't know what should you do.
Just Just leave it to him. Don't open your mouth. Yeah.
Oh, sorry. Sorry. Okay. It's right there. Yes, absolutely. Yeah, don't open it. If Allah knows and you don't know where you can open your mouth. If your friend knows mechanics, you don't know mechanics. The car breaks down. He opens the hood. He starts going in the right place. You don't
touch this thing over here. You don't even know what it's called. Why are you opening your mouth if you don't know things? If two people are together, one understands the other does understand who has who has to follow whom this guy falls. The other one is you see an accident on the side of the road. And the brother with you is a doctor. And you don't know anything about medicine. You just eat meat. That's all you do.
That's the closest you got to bodies, yani. Yeah, and then there's an accident and the doctor in you parked the car you run over to help people and he's trying to help stop the bleeding and all that is applying pressure and you don't know not here. Not here. Doctor Put your hand here here. Why are you speaking if you don't know. So naturally, when one knows and the other doesn't know. You'd be quiet. And you listen to what this one says? Yeah, what it doesn't matter. We don't compare a lot to his creation. But when Allah knows and you don't know, you'd be quiet and you listen to what Allah says that's the end of that story. Right?
When Ola for the Lucha alikum again what are the two who were anila are often Rahim but you can see something is missing in this verse. Had it not been for the grace of Allah upon you and his mercy. And Allah is most forgive forgiving, Most Merciful. It should be had not been for the grace of Allah has mercy upon you something something something and Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful, right? But there's nothing there. It just says sugar. And why? Because you can easily fill in the blank there.
What it had not been for the mercy of a lot and his and his grace and the grace and mercy of Allah upon you what would have happened? How serious is this incident?
Well take a guess what do you think would would have happened?
punishment, severe punishment would have touched you. While punishment would have
nations have been destroyed for defending their profit. And now your attention. You're attacking the last prophet of Allah and the greatest prophet of Allah in his honor. Yeah. And in the honor of his family, you're impugning him. So yeah, a severe punishment would have touched you. But because of the grace of Allah and His mercy upon you, it didn't happen. And Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful. And then we'll do the last one, which is puts us in the end of the first chunk of the verses of verse 21. So 11 to 21. About Isaiah 22 abubaker. Don't stop giving mister keep giving him 23 sorry, 20 Yeah, 23 to 26. Back to Ayesha, again, why?
When when you have
an incident or some topic being discussed, then a pause comes in the middle, then we go back to it. It means it's very, very serious. We're not done yet. I'll give you an example using fathers. Okay.
Let's say you messed up pretty bad that day. You must stop, okay. And your dad, he has a ritual. You have lunch. Then he goes he takes his nap. And then after he wakes up from the nap the whole family gets together and we have tea together. So now one day, you messed up very badly. All have lunch Your father is threatening you all lunch? And will a swear to god if you do this again and will not and
all the time he wants to jump over the table and strangle you, threatening you. Then he takes his nap. Then he works up to time. What did you study in school today in class, we're just talking. Now imagine one day is messed up big time as well. Can you tell me which day is worse? Oh lunch, he's threatening you. I swear to God, I think and if you ever unwell or threatening, then he goes take his not takes us now. Then for tea time. Everyone gets back together and he's giving you these dirty looks.
And we'll learn as immutable law. Law his history. Which day is worse?
Second day for sure. Right? Because even after the gap he still came back to the subject we're not done. I want to talk to you about this again. where Allah Allah Allah we don't compare a lot this question 11 to 21 iF 20 to 20 over 23 to 26 back to the subject. We're not finished yet. You see how strong that is? Strong. So let's finish verse 21. would have done the first chunk of the Iet on an IF YOU WILL Edina Armando. Oh man. Oh man so strong. You will Edina Armando

But Allah purifies whenever he wills and allows all hearing or knowing on a focus on one thing, and we're done. And that is a law that says that the
typical hotwater Shabbat do not follow the footsteps of the shape on the scholars looked at this ayah. And they said the fact that shaytan works in steps, shows you that his smart, true or false? Yeah, because if he's not smart, he'll tell you, okay, go to this guy and do this to him. You're not going to do that no one listens to the worst plan of the shaitaan. But he gives you step one, just do this, you do it, and then it gets worse do that now. And then with steps, you get to the point where you can hit someone or killed someone and it gets worse. So he works in steps. And I want to quickly give this example and we're done. Which is really amazing. And it shows you how much shavon
Everybody, not just women.

And I spoke to Allah and I spoke to him just like I was going to speak to you. And I told him every detail that I was going to tell it to you and ask him for help with this problem. Well, let Allah is close to us people, but we're not close to him. We're not close to him. And that's why I look in the Quran every time. They asked him a question. He's Allah subhanaw taala respond to how Yes, aluna can they asked you about? Good? Tell them this? they asked you, you tell them this. But when it comes to the
and it comes to Allah azza wa jal, Allah didn't say they. And he didn't say you told them. Allah answered himself. were either Celica a baddie, I need if my servant servants ask you about me. He doesn't say tell them for me. I am close. You guys feel this? Or what?
That's deep, man. Even if you know this, when you hear it again, you go crazy, true or false?
No, it's not sure you guys never go crazy.
One crazy Egyptian, that's all. That's all we need.
We'll lay out of the you just make dua to Allah like, just like how you wrote it now. And he told me you feel empty. Say that to Allah. Oh, but Allah knows I feel empty. Of course he does. But speak to a lot like that. Yeah. And that's why I really love what one of the one of the Mushaf said, he said that when Allah wants to speak to you, he sent down the Quran. When you want to speak to Allah, you put your hands up and
speak to Allah, he will find you better solution and he'll say, and he will help you more than me or anyone sitting in this place will help you will log on on.
The next question is
how can you remain having a hyena?
Look, how can you remain? or How can you kind of maintain it to a level because a man by its nature, it flux, it fluctuates, it goes up and down. So if you're asking how can I keep it like this, no one on this earth keeps it like this. But you can keep alive. This is better than this. You with me?
like I said in the beginning, and I know you're looking for some big formula. And so it's really easy. Part of having good demand is to monitor and watch your demand. And if it drops, you do things that raise your email, if it's fasting, if it's fasting, if it's listening to lectures, its lectures, praying in the masjid pray in the masjid. If it's reading Quran read Quran. And that's why I would say and there are a lot of actually free ebooks about how to read to increase your Eman. And it talks about how what decreases email, what increases demand and how to all about demand. So there is a list of things no one's gonna tell you this is the formula list of things good does that raise
your demand and you already know what increases your demand? Anytime it decreases? You bring it up again by doing the good in Charlotte region. And that's the best way to keep it high.
Mashallah, very good question.
when Allah guides, whom He wills, it sounds like on the other hand, he doesn't he chooses not to guide others. And what, what it means is that
the okay the scholars explained that there are four levels of guidance, level number one general guidance and that's how the world works, how the world runs. That's how the chicks know it's time to hatch out to come out of the egg. That's how the child knows it's time to come out of the womb. That's how the birds know which direction to fly. It just how the world regulates is level one. Level Two is when Allah sends prophets and messengers to people, or it's like how the Quran is available today. Anyone can go online and read the Quran, download the Quran onto their device and read it go to the library and get a copy of the Quran. Quran is available. level two, the message of
Muhammad wa sallam is available. Level Three is an extra gift. Right? level three is an extra gift, like a low just open someone's heart to Islam. And I'm just giving an example earlier of someone who not a Muslim. He's asleep.
He sees himself for example, wearing a white thug, and a hat and praying in the masjid. Yeah. And he doesn't know anything about Islam. He wakes up and he felt good in the dream. He starts to read the Quran, he becomes a Muslim. His brother didn't get this dream. In this case, Allah guided this brother and not the other brother. But it's not unfair to the other brother. And can this other brother complain on the day of judgment? Yeah, a lot. You didn't give me a dream, no worrying Nice job and, and Hatton like my brother and my dream, I was wearing jeans leather jacket or shooting somebody. His dream is a low.
So he does he have an argument against Allah? And the answer is no. Why? Because his brother got level three, which is an extra level, but he got level two. You understand? He got level two, the Quran was available. His brother gave him Dawa, invited him to the masjid gave him books, give him the Quran. give him advice. He got level two. So, so Allah will guide people meaning number three, but he allowed for the most people on the planet to receive level two. And that's why it's not unfair from the sight of Allah subhanaw taala Donna?
No, it is
perceived as a very important question. He does. Is he allowed to do demonstration? And yes, is he then allow for a woman to be a part of it?
Hmm, this sounds like some local Denmark in problem. And you just want to stuff me in the middle of this problem. I bet you this is one of those issues in the community like demonstrations. The other group is hella dismissed hdri image and I'm going to put the innocent man in this problem. She was in my right. Uh, keep me out of this pleaser. I'm your guest while you want to do this to me. Let's be friends. Yeah. So as my advice also, any any guest speaker keep him out of local problems. And people who are not from Denmark. Well, I mean, what I understood in these three days, that it's complex here, and it's not like American, it's not like the UK. And it's not like Canada. So don't
get some speaker from Canada or UK and have them give you footwear for your specific problems. Take these problems to a local shoe, I'm sure they enjoy it more than then the visitors would love to Milan
unless you have a big, big problem and hear in the head.
Meaning really not, I don't mean crazy. It's not just craziness. That's a problem in the head.
Unless you have a big problem, you probably don't have a bad memory. The first step to having a good memory is to believe that you have a good memory or to believe you don't have a bad memory. Because when you say I have a bad memory, what you're doing is you're making yourself fail. This is a no have time to go into it. This is what psychologists called learned helplessness when you teach yourself to be helpless. And many of us do this for each other to ourselves right now. Many of you say I'm not good with math. True or false. Yeah, man is I'm not good with math. And because you say that you will never be good at math because you've set yourself up for failure. I'm not good at
math. When they give you math you just quickly tell us if I'm not good at this. Let me get the F quickly. Yeah, you set yourself up for failure. I'm not good with names how many brothers say that I'm not good with names and sisters? Or you're good with names or Mashallah. Okay, so you say I'm not good with names. Why not? You speak two languages. You people in this room? Mashallah. You guys in Denmark, Mashallah you speak at least three languages each. Yeah.
So, languages are composed of hundreds of words, the guy comes in front of you says sound like my name is Abdullah Ali. You can't remember that. One word.
I speak three languages. But how can I remember this? You set yourself up for failure. When you say I'm not good with names and you set yourself up for failure. When you say I'm not good with roads. I used to do that. One time I got lost in the street behind my house. And I'm not making this up. And I called my roommate and I said, I'm on Wilson Boulevard. He started laughing. He said you behind the house. Just come to the front.
Yeah, because you tell myself I'm not good with roads. So I became bad with roads because I prepared myself for failure. So the first thing is stop saying I have very bad memory and everything. The other piece of good news is that if you want to say memorize the Quran, you have to be patient with only the beginning stages of memorizing, not your whole life of trying to memorize the Koran. What does that mean? It means and there's a study to indicate this like if and I'm going to exaggerate a little bit. It's like the brain is almost like a muscle in the sense that when you
Exercise a muscle what happens? It changes. True. When you exercise a muscle it changes, it looks different in appearance, because because the exercise changes it. And they did some studies with some with the cab drivers in the UK, and they saw a specific kind of cab driver who has to memorize every little alley in the city. Yeah, very, very difficult test they take. So when they examine their brains, they found that their brains changed because of this practice. So the good news is you just have to push yourself in the beginning stages, and then your brain starts to get well oiled. Yeah, and starts to get smoother and smoother. And memorization gets easier and easier and easier.
All you have to do is fight through that. Stop telling yourself you don't have good memory, to you have to struggle only until you're the oil starts and is no more squeaking in there. And the oil gets it moving fluidly and smoothly. Then you're okay. That's the advice with latona.
How can I motivate my brothers and sisters to come and learn?
A lot of advice.
Okay, these kinds of questions, they require some good planning, like what is turning them away from the deed? What is occupying their time? And this is a very important thing. What is occupying your time? Is it music? Is it other friends? Is it video games, each one of these reasons has a different technique and a different tactic. So is it they just they don't do anything, they've got nothing better to do, but they just get bored when they come to the massage what's their excuse for not coming with you when you try to energize them and get them to do something.
So to a person like this, I would say you have to based on the details you know about them and in the relationship you have with them. Then, based on that you pick the one thing that you're going to, as they say pick your battles, let's say they don't pray, they don't pray and you want to bring them to an event where there's some speakers gonna speak for six hours, for example, okay, they don't, they're not interested in that. So pick your battles, what is the number one thing I need to focus on with my brother or my sister? Maybe they don't pray, then that's all I'm gonna do. So Allah, if you just establish that one part of someone's life, the amount of hair and Baraka that
will pull to their life is unbelievable. So it's worth your time to just invest in that one thing. So my brother, my younger brother plays the guitar, and he doesn't pray, hypothetically. He plays a guitar, he doesn't pray, what should I do? Just focus on getting him to pray. Don't focus on getting him to stop playing guitar, he's never gonna stop playing. He loves it. Nothing will make him stop playing. You burn it, he'll buy a new one. Don't do that. Yeah. So, focus, find the one thing if it's solid, just focus on solid and take it one step at a time. Allah guided you to the deen and you're excited and you want to practice every student on everything. They're not at the same level
as you are. So you don't think you can just grab them to come come there's a shift coming in, there's this event and there's this lecture.
They're not going to be interested in that. So one step at a time, allow them to MIT to take their own baby steps. And based on what you know of their scenario and the situation. We're left on. So long.
Jacques mala Hello, everyone. Salaam Alaikum. You know, something?
Just very quickly on it.
So I was here with our brothers and sisters from Juanita, and works. And I and I'm very thankful to Mr. tauheed for the invitation and the opportunity to speak to you and Originally I'm from the United States and originally from Sudan. Yeah. And I'm from the States as well. And I work with another Institute Who's heard of another Institute
Mashallah, excellent. And guess what, you Okay, I'm not gonna mention but basically, they they bring Islamic studies to you to your city, and instructor will come to your city. And they'll they will teach you the material that otherwise you would get something something similar to in Medina or overseas or something like that. So instead of you having to put your studies on hold and travel overseas, to study, now the lessons come to you in your city, and you keep keep getting your degree in law, or your degree in, in Islamic in medicine, and get your degree in Islamic Studies at the same time without going overseas without stopping your studies or going anywhere else. It comes to
your city. And we've got 50 cities worldwide. You know, now we're in Singapore, on how to learn Philippines and Malaysia and we're all standing in UK and do And guess what? We're starting Baden Allah azzawajal in Sweden, in May. We're starting in Sweden, and we're not in Denmark yet. And as far as I've learned in these three days, that Denmark is better than Sweden in my write.
Very serious about you know how many students have come through the doors of 80,000
80,000 students worldwide and you should see my schelotto watercolor last year we had our first batch of a batch of graduates they got their degree in Islamic Studies and they're superb students Mashallah we don't have a praise them a lot. But this could be something that could come to Denmark as well and be of great benefit. The course in the class will come to your city or the single weekend or double weekend, you register. You take the class with the instructor, you get a booklet, PowerPoint, he explains everything. And after that, three weeks or four weeks later, you take the exam and it goes towards your degree. So those were interested in something like that any contact
Alma grip and mograph.org. And of course, we have the director for the UK here, but that's i'd late in the back. And, you know, we'll see if we can do this and be better than those Swedes you know what I'm saying? Yeah, all right, Bach. Luffy, whom you guys Santa Monica de la vaca.
