00:01:29--> 00:01:40

while Goofy lecom Zulu back home, we're making up Isla her waters hula who, so Cardiff fellows and Halima an adult.

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

When Allah subhana who went to Allah created us.

00:01:52--> 00:01:55

He created he created within us

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

a certain desire,

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

a certain attraction to certain things.

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

And so Allah subhanahu wa taala says,

00:02:08--> 00:02:32

Zhu Yi nearly Nursey who busher Hawa T. Nina Nisa, e Weldon in Weill Cornell twill Muqaam 30 minutes the heavy wellfield Ba well hadal Musa one that he will and He will help there Lika Tyrell hayati, duniya, Wallah Hoo, hoo hoo small morale.

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

Allah subhanahu wa taala says

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

that the enjoyment of

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

the worldly desires

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

and then he gives examples of women

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

of the desire for children

00:02:52--> 00:02:56

of the treasures of gold and silver wealth

00:02:58--> 00:03:25

of fine horses of fertile land. Allah subhanho wa Taala says all of these have been made appealing, attractive for many people. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, These are the pleasures of this worldly life. And with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best return.

00:03:26--> 00:03:42

And so these Shahar words, these natural human desires are a part of our human nature, that Allah subhanho wa Taala built within us, and it's not, it's not possible.

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

It's not possible to get rid of them.

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

And that's not what Allah subhanahu Attallah wants from us.

00:03:52--> 00:03:57

But rather what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants from us

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

is to follow

00:04:01--> 00:04:16

the boundaries that he has put in place, that we don't cross these boundaries, and to enter into fulfilling these desires in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made haram for us.

00:04:17--> 00:04:30

And so if ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is the one who created us, then he knows better, what's good for us and what's not good for us. And so that is why he made these boundaries for us.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

And so my dear brothers and sisters, the fitting of Shiva

00:04:38--> 00:04:57

is one of the two kinds of Phaeton in the previous hookah we spoke about the other kind, and that is the fitna of Shewhart. doubts and questions and objections. And so my dear brothers and sisters, the fitna of Shiva

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

is a test of

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

Now that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us to go through to see who will obey His commands, and who will feel that tests. And so

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

he made these laws,

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

and he put them in place, in order to test us

00:05:27--> 00:05:41

to see who will control their desires in what pleases Allah subhanho wa taala. And who will allow His desire is on the loose without anything to put a control on them.

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

My dear brothers and sisters in the times in which we live in today,

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

we human beings

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

have reached the peak

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

of all what we have invented and manufactured

00:06:00--> 00:06:04

in order to fulfill these human desires,

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

and so they are accessible today for us like never before.

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

There was a time when you had to go out in search of fulfilling your desires in what is haram.

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

Today, it's the opposite.

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

They come to you. And you have to run away from them.

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

My dear brothers and sisters, all of this shows us

00:06:32--> 00:06:35

the importance of talking about

00:06:36--> 00:06:46

how to control these Shahar words, when they intensify. And when the urges and the temptations intensify.

00:06:47--> 00:07:07

This is one of the two tests that we face in this life, the test of Shubho heart and the test of Shaha. And so the question is, how do we deal with this test? How do we deal with these temptations and these urges, when they intensify?

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

Uh, one of the tips that we can give is first and foremost

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

that you need to recognize

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

the grave danger

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

of following your desires in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made haram

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

no matter how small or insipid, insignificant, it may seem in your eyes.

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

And so a small glance,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

a small thought,

00:07:39--> 00:07:47

one sip, one puff, is not small, but it is great in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:48--> 00:08:06

And so think of the grave dangers of it. The how the small sins lead to major sins. Think about how these small things that we look at as being small, they end up putting a seal on the heart,

00:08:07--> 00:08:13

they end up putting a cover between your heart and ALLAH SubhanA who were to hurt.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

Think about how

00:08:18--> 00:08:37

sinning in private behind closed doors is not something small, but rather in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is huge, so huge, that it could be one of the reasons that your good deeds are not accepted on the Day of Judgment.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

so huge that sitting in private.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

We are you break down

00:08:45--> 00:08:52

the sanctity of Allah subhanho wa Taala between you and Allah, how Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

will break that barrier between you and the people in the public.

00:08:59--> 00:09:06

Think about how each and every single small sin that we commit.

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

How each and every single one of our organs, our body parts

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

will testify on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:18--> 00:09:27

It's not something small. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in some bizarro world Fuad kulula Iike Kernaghan, who must Oh Allah,

00:09:29--> 00:09:39

that the hearing, the sight, the heart and what it thinks all of these will be questioned on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:40--> 00:09:54

Think My dear brothers and sisters, how these Shahar words, they lead to what is greater. And those are the Shubo hats that we spoke about previously.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

We think it as being insignificant. We think that

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

We will never question anything about this deem we think that we will never doubt Allah subhanho wa Taala or the existence of Allah subhanaw taala and so we're free to sin.

00:10:13--> 00:10:23

But yet the reality is that she will hurt, do not rise, except on the grounds of Shaha

00:10:25--> 00:10:48

anyone who became an atheist, it was because of his Shaohua anyone who questioned anything about this deem it was because of his shouts because this is where shaitan begins. Allah subhanahu wa Tada speaks of this reality and tells us of Shaitan in Moodle, Combi su e, welfare SHA

00:10:50--> 00:11:00

what does he command us with to commit evil to commit immodesty, immorality. And then what is ALLAH SubhanA who were to Allah say, what

00:11:01--> 00:11:13

Allah Allah He may Allah Tala moon and also he commands you to say about Allah subhanho wa Taala that which you don't know to claim about this deem

00:11:15--> 00:11:24

that which is wrong. Why? Because now you want to justify your shahada what so you find avenues you find ways

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

to question the deen of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

And to question Allah subhanahu wata.

00:11:35--> 00:11:43

My dear brothers and sisters, among the tips on how to deal with the urges and the temptations of our shouts

00:11:45--> 00:11:59

is to not look at the insignificance of the small sins that we're committing. But rather to consider the greatness of the one we are sinning.

00:12:01--> 00:12:08

And so my dear brothers and sisters, it's a matter of the consciousness of Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:12:09--> 00:12:18

it's a matter of how we look at Allah subhanho wa Taala How great is Allah subhanahu wa Tada in our eyes

00:12:21--> 00:12:25

well I'm Naaman Hoffa McCollum Obi Wan Hanif sir and

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

for in janitor here

00:12:32--> 00:12:45

that as for the one who fears what he fears his self standing before his Lord subhanho wa taala. And so as a result of this fear,

00:12:46--> 00:13:01

He prohibits his his knifes from following its desires, his abode will be Jana. Even our best commenting on the statement of of Allah subhanahu wa taala. He says a refers to the one

00:13:02--> 00:13:17

who is in front of committing a sin. He hasn't committed it yet. He's about to commit the sin. And then he remembers himself standing before Allah subhanho wa taala. This fear of Allah subhanahu Attallah causes him

00:13:18--> 00:13:20

to run away from that sin.

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:13:27--> 00:13:28


00:13:29--> 00:13:32

the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:13:33--> 00:13:45

concerning those who will be shaded by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day in which there will be no shade except his. The among them is one

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

who was invited by a woman

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

and not any woman

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

but a beautiful woman

00:13:56--> 00:13:59

and one who comes from a good family a noble lineage.

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

What does he say?

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

There's nothing between him and fulfilling his desires except one thing.

00:14:09--> 00:14:17

And that is the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says no, I fear Allah subhana who were to add

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

my dear brothers and sisters.

00:14:21--> 00:14:28

It is how you think of Allah subhanahu wa taala how you view the greatness of Allah subhanahu wa taala in your eyes.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

Also among the tips

00:14:33--> 00:14:46

for dealing with the urges of our shadow wax is to reflect over the reality of these desires that we want to fulfill the objects

00:14:47--> 00:14:54

that we're chasing after the hour enough's wants to fulfill its desires in that object.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

Think firstly,

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

of the very essence of this thing.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

is that it is pure evil.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

There it is pure field

00:15:08--> 00:15:22

and not how shaitan makes it to seem in our eyes shaytaan makes it to seem beautiful, makes it to seem attractive. But the very reality of it is that it is evil and filth.

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

And that's how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes it in the Quran.

00:15:29--> 00:15:35

Al Habiba two little hobbies in well, hobby tuna little hobby that

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

that a female

00:15:40--> 00:15:44

adulteress is for the meal adulterer.

00:15:46--> 00:15:54

The females Zania is for the mill Zanni and the meal Zanni is for the females Ania.

00:15:55--> 00:16:16

How does the word describe them as being hubby's as being filthy? And then how does Allah describe the pure those who do not involve themselves in these filthy things? What by Ebro to litho you been what you Buena Vista, you bat and the pure

00:16:17--> 00:16:21

among the females are for the pure among the meals.

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

And the pure among the meals are for the pure among the females.

00:16:27--> 00:16:32

Think My dear brothers and sisters, secondly, about

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

the temporary near nature

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

of these desires that we're chasing after

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

Think of how

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

these Shahar words that we're trying to fulfill,

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

how they will give us a moment of pleasure.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

And then it's over. That's it.

00:16:59--> 00:17:05

The pleasure is gone. But now think of the consequences of it.

00:17:06--> 00:17:10

Of the regret that comes after it. The remorse that comes after it.

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


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

of how

00:17:18--> 00:17:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish you on the Day of Judgment. And so an hour of pleasure in this dunya is not worth an eternity of punishment in that era.

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

And then ask yourself, Is it truly worth it? Finally, my dear brothers and sisters

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

the most important piece of advice

00:17:42--> 00:17:48

is that once you have understood the nature of these desires and shallots

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

now is it time to turn to Allah subhanahu wa taharah

00:17:56--> 00:18:12

in sincere repentance, seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for his aid and his help Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us in the Quran, what to boo eel Allah He Jeremy

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

La La come to flee Hoon

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

and repent all of you.

00:18:20--> 00:18:38

The believers are being addressed here, all of you all believers, so that you can be successful. This idea or this part of the ayah in Surah to Nora is mentioned at the very end after Allah commands us to lower our gazes after Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:18:40--> 00:18:48

commands us to protect our private parts after Allah subhanahu wa taala commands the believing women to cover themselves

00:18:49--> 00:19:11

in front of those who are not their moms, and not to reveal their beauty after all of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the believers to return to him in repentance, indicating that each and every single one of us are prone to falling into the sins even if it is something small.

00:19:14--> 00:19:27

And so my dear brothers and sisters, a true repentance, that sincere repentance is the one that comes with regret, with sorrow, with remorse.

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

It is the one

00:19:31--> 00:19:41

that comes with completely abandoning the sins, saying that from today. That's it. This is my past. And as for my future.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

It is now a determination of strong determination and willpower to never ever go back to the sins no matter how small or insignificant. They may seem to us, my dear brothers and sisters after that

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

seek the help and the aid of Allah subhanho wa Taala and look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us of use of Allah salaam, and how even he sought the aid and the help of ALLAH SubhanA who were to Hannah, even though he was a prophet and messenger, and was guaranteed the aid and the help of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, All Rob BCG and who are humble enough to ruin and Elaine

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

were in

00:20:33--> 00:21:21

US boo la Hiner what a communal Jaya Helene, the Oh ALLAH prison is far more beloved to me, than what these women are calling me to. And if you do not Ward me away from them, protect me from their plots, then I will surely inclined to them faster Jabba who rapoo who for sarafa and who Qaeda Hoonah in who who was semi Haleem and so Allah answered his dua and protected him from their plots in the who, who was semi Haleem Akula Cody herder was still fear Allah had he welcome what he said it will mostly mean I mean couldn't didn't mean was who first tells you who in know who all of us

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

Alhamdulillah Euro bill Alameen

00:21:38--> 00:22:09

wa kiba to limit takim wala Rudy wanna Illa? Hello volley mean? Why should I do Hola? ilaha illa who Ida hula Shari Keller, what should I do and Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi women Toby mbsfn in Isla Yomi Dean toquilla Eva de la, what else we who that the Unicom What are your Allah rasool Allah Who In Kuntum meaning

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

my dear brothers and sisters

00:22:15--> 00:22:20

there is a reality that many of us face in their battle against these Shahar Watts

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

and that is that many of them they say

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

that I have realized the danger of the shower

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

and falling into haram

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

and I have even repented to Allah subhana wa Tada

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

but I keep on going back to the sin

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

and so I repent and then I sin I repent and then I sin.

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

And so, now, I give

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

the very first thing that such a person needs to realize

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

is that if this is the case, if you are in such a cycle,

00:23:06--> 00:23:06

then remember

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

that you are on the right path.

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

But if you decide to give up

00:23:15--> 00:23:19

then you have surrendered to shaitan your enemy.

00:23:20--> 00:23:28

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Kulu Benny Adam hotbar. There every single son of Adam,

00:23:29--> 00:24:01

is what not just a sinner, but a frequent sinner. Well, how you were how you roll in a boon and the Best of those who frequently sin or who are those who frequently turn to Allah and repentance. And so my dear brothers and sisters, the key is to not give up. Secondly, Allah subhanahu Attallah do does not desert the one who flees to him Subhanahu wa Taala constantly.

00:24:03--> 00:24:16

And no one sincerely turns to Allah subhanahu Attallah in repentance and seeking the help of Allah subhanahu Attallah except that Allah subhanahu wa Tada helps him.

00:24:18--> 00:24:19


00:24:20--> 00:24:37

that no one gives up something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised that he will replace that thing that he gave up for the sake of Allah, with something with something far better.

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

And so even if you don't see it, as being something tangible,

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

that Allah has replaced this for me.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

Then there are many other things that Allah will give you that are far greater than what you have given up for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa taala. Of Eman of the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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


00:25:01--> 00:25:05

have the strengthening of your heart of the purification of your soul and your heart

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

and of the reward that awaits you

00:25:11--> 00:25:31

in the era. Think about that. And remember, the Promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala we're making it tequila your job Allahu Maharajah, the Whoever fears Allah. Whoever has the Taqwa of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah will surely make a way out for him.

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

My dear brothers and sisters after that,

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

busy yourself

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

with the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala busy yourself

00:25:44--> 00:26:07

with the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada busy yourself with doing good and righteous deeds, busy yourself with that which is beneficial for you and your soul and your heart. Why? Because if you do not, then your knifes will busy yourself with that which is haram. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the youth

00:26:08--> 00:26:38

that they should get married. Why? Because it helps to lower the gaze and to protect the private part. And then what did he say that if you're not able to do that, then fast because it is a protection, fast, it is a good deed. It is a way to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a way to distract your knifes from wanting to fulfill its desires in that which is haram and finally,

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

finally, patiently endure

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

and persevere

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

and battle

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

against these desires of your knifes. Why? Because the one who does that

00:26:59--> 00:27:17

he will be rewarded greatly in this life before the akhira Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us of this reality and giving us example after example in the Quran. One such example Allah subhanahu Attallah tells us concerning the story of Paul Lutz

00:27:19--> 00:27:38

and the believers that he set out with to fight the enemy John loons for alumna first of all ortho Lu to build you know the color in Allah humblebee tele convener her Furman Sheri Berman who Valley is a mini woman Lemieux Tom who for in whom in the laminate photographer who have faith and be

00:27:39--> 00:27:41

that tall who said to them,

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

the Allah will now test you

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

with a river that is flowing.

00:27:48--> 00:27:50

Whoever drinks from this river

00:27:52--> 00:28:00

he is not from me. He has disobeyed the Command of Allah. Instead he has obeyed the command of his knifes

00:28:02--> 00:28:09

and so few of them refrain from drinking, the majority of them drank. Then what does Allah subhanho wa Taala tell us?

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

The story goes on.

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

That when they face the enemy, the majority of them they said

00:28:21--> 00:28:32

we cannot stand against this powerful enemy. But the few who refrained who are patient, against their desires. They said no.

00:28:34--> 00:28:57

Indeed, Allah has given victory to few over a powerful enemy. And so they fought and Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them victory. Because of their patience. We have the other example of use of Alayhis Salam and how he endured even imprisonment.

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

All why?

00:29:02--> 00:29:24

Why? Because he didn't want to fall into that which Allah had made haram. He stood patiently struggling against his knifes. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala rewarded him and gave him leadership and authority. And finally, look at Musa alayhis salam.

00:29:25--> 00:29:33

And how when he met these two women fleeing from their own, wanting a place of safety and security

00:29:36--> 00:29:48

how when he met these two women, and lowered his gaze, and dealt with them in a modest manner, how Allah subhanho wa Taala married one of them to him,

00:29:49--> 00:29:53

and granted him a place of shelter and protection.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

My dear brothers and sisters, the key or the key here is to patiently

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

endure until the day you meet Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

And so,

00:30:07--> 00:30:11

fighting against the Shabbat is not an easy thing.

00:30:12--> 00:30:22

But it is something that is rewarding in this life before the next Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well let Elijah do fina

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

there are those who struggle in our path

00:30:29--> 00:30:38

that Allah will guide them to the ways, many ways that seem to be difficult for them. Allah guides him to it. Yeah, how are you? Hello?

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

00:30:52--> 00:30:59

and have patience, patiently endure and fear Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

so that you are among those who are successful. And so when the urges and the temptations of our Shaha to intensify,

00:31:12--> 00:31:24

stand firm and keep up your guard and never give up and fight back. Like a true warrior. Who doesn't know the meaning of surrender?

00:31:26--> 00:31:58
