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

In Alhamdulillah

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

Muhammad who understood you know who is still a hero, when not Rue de la Himanshu Rijn fusina Warminster Tiana Lena,

00:00:33--> 00:00:38

Mejia Hilah who Fela mobile Allah, woman you believe who Fela de Allah.

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

Allah, Allah Allah Allahu la sharika Allah

00:00:46--> 00:00:53

Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi woman.

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

Elijah Yomi Dean.

00:00:57--> 00:01:12

Yeah, you Hello Deena Manu taco hopko Ducati watamu illa Anta musli Moon yeah you Hello Tina man otaku Haku Colin city de you sleep.

00:01:13--> 00:01:22

La come while who feed lukou back home, warming up la hora Sula, who caught a fez 1000 How

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

am I bad?

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

My dear brothers and sisters, each and every single one of us

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

is exposed to trials and tests

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

and tribulations and temptations in this life.

00:01:41--> 00:02:14

These are the Phaeton that are exposed to our hearts. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained how, when these fitten are presented to our hearts, they end up in one of two categories. And so he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that fittin are presented to the hearts one by one, any heart that accepts them, a black mark is placed on it.

00:02:15--> 00:02:48

And any heart that rejects them, a mark of purity will be left on it until the hearts are of two kinds. A dark heart that has turned away and become like an overturned vessel and another heart of pure heart that will never be harmed by any of those Phaeton that are presented to it, as long as the earth and the heavens exists.

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

And so my dear brothers and sisters, these are the Phaeton

00:02:54--> 00:03:16

that we are exposed to today, like never ever before. And so many have fallen victim to these fit in absorbing them, allowing their hearts to become darkened with these fitten not surviving the test that Allah subhana wa tada placed on them.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

And these fit and my dear brothers and sisters

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

are basically

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

traced back to two categories.

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

We have the Phaeton of shoe hats have doubts,

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

of objections related to what we're supposed to believe in.

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

And then we have the fitting of Shahada,

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

which are basically

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

the lustful desires and urges that

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

our human bodies and knifes wants to fulfill.

00:03:53--> 00:03:53

And so

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

he says, regarding this, that there are two kinds of fitting

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

the fitting of shubo hat, he says, which is the more dangerous of the two,

00:04:07--> 00:04:36

and then the fitting of Shahar. He says they can come together in a person, both of these, or one can exist on its own. And so, since each of these requires an entire discussion, today, we're gonna focus on one of them, the fitting of shubo hat, and insha Allahu taala. In the future, hauteville will focus on the second and that is the fitting of Shahada.

00:04:37--> 00:04:44

And so my dear brothers and sisters today, Islam is under attack, like never before

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

making many Muslims

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

to become vulnerable to these attacks.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Making them to start doubting and questioning the very fundamentals, the very things that this D

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

has been built upon.

00:05:03--> 00:05:04

And so

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

they're asking,

00:05:07--> 00:05:37

How can Islam be suitable? For the times in which we're living in today? these modern times in which the world has advanced, Islam is backward? How can it be suitable for this day and age? Others are asking, why does Islam contradict scientific discoveries? Others are asking, why does Islam oppress women? When in this century,

00:05:38--> 00:05:55

the woman has become liberated. Others are asking that if Islam was truly the true religion from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then why is it that bloodshed today is associated with this religion more than any other religion?

00:05:56--> 00:06:08

and others are asking? That if Allah subhanho wa Taala is truly merciful, compassionate, then why is it that we find suffering in the world today?

00:06:09--> 00:06:23

Others are asking, why does Allah subhanho wa Taala commend us to worship Him? is Allah subhanho wa Taala in need of our worship? Why is he in need of our worship?

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

My dear brothers and sisters, these are what we call shubho ha.

00:06:31--> 00:06:38

doubts that come and afflict the hearts and cause the hearts to deviate.

00:06:40--> 00:06:46

And so when these doubts come crashing down, when the waves of doubts come crashing down?

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

How are we supposed to react?

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

How do we deal with these don'ts? What is the way out of the darkness of the shoe hands.

00:07:02--> 00:07:11

And so there are many points that we can mention. There are many pieces of advice that we can give, but will suffice with three golden pieces of advice.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

The very first thing that we have to realize

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

is

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

that we need to keep ourselves protected

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

and not expose ourselves to these doubts

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

when we haven't even confronted them.

00:07:34--> 00:07:38

And so you find some people searching for these kinds of doubts.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

Looking at what the enemies of Islam have said,

00:07:44--> 00:07:59

thinking that I can handle them. It's not a big deal for me. And so my dear brothers and sisters, if you don't know how to swim, you don't even go close to the soar to the shores of an ocean that has huge waves

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

crashing down.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

If you don't know how to swim, you don't even go close.

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

And so similarly, if you're not well grounded in knowledge of the deen, then you don't come close to these doubts and these attacks, that the enemies of Islam are attacking Islam with

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this regard,

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

he said, they will be fitting meaning in the future,

00:08:32--> 00:08:40

they will be fitting we're in a person who is sitting is better than a person who is standing.

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

And a person who is standing is better than a person who is walking.

00:08:49--> 00:09:03

And a person who is walking is better than a person who is running. Whoever he sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Whoever exposes himself to these fitten they will destroy him.

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

But whoever finds a place of protection,

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

a place of safety,

00:09:12--> 00:09:22

then let him take refuge in it. Let him shelter himself in it, let him stay away from these shoe hats and these Fitton.

00:09:25--> 00:09:36

And so my dear brothers and sisters exposing yourself to these fitten and these shoe hats. It is one of the primary causes that causes people to go astray.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

And we have many examples of this throughout history.

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

There's one example

00:09:45--> 00:09:50

that is mentioned of an individual by the name of sheath.

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

The scholars mentioned in his biography

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

that he was involved in

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

of a woman by the name of suggests,

00:10:04--> 00:10:26

who had basically claimed Prophethood for herself. This was in the time of Abu Bakar ObiWan when he was fighting the battles of ryda, of Apostasy, and people were leaving Islam. And you had certain individuals who are claiming to be prophets, such as Musa Ulema Musa Allah Al Khattab

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

and this woman leader on married Hussein Lima al Qaeda.

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

And so this individual sheets,

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

he was a surgeon for this woman,

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

then he repented

00:10:42--> 00:10:57

leaving this woman, but then he was among those who revolted against Earth metal, the Allahu, and killing him. And then he repented. And then after that, he joined those who fought Holly rhodiola, who I'm

00:10:58--> 00:11:26

demanding justice for Earth matter of the law one. And then he repented. And then after that, he joined the ranks of the early rhodiola. One, then he revolted against him with the orange. And then he repented. And then he was in the army who killed the same role the Allahu, and then he repented. And then after that, he joined those who demanded justice, for the killing of Al Pacino.

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

And so you find from the story,

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

the basically exposing yourself

00:11:37--> 00:11:46

to delts and shubo hat is one of the primary causes that leads you astray, moving from one deviation to another.

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

Also, among the golden pieces of advice that we can give, to deal

00:11:55--> 00:12:02

with the urges of shubo hat is that when these doubts come

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

to realize

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

that they can develop and grow,

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

they start off small.

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

But eventually they grow until they become convictions in the heart.

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

And so before allowing them to take root in the heart.

00:12:25--> 00:12:33

Cut off that route, before it grows into something that you won't be able to handle ever.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us of this,

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

when he told us where these doubts come from, where they originate from.

00:12:45--> 00:12:50

And not only that, but he told us how to cut off that route. From the very beginning.

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us of a dolt.

00:12:56--> 00:13:07

That is very common today, and that the atheists use to try to disprove the existence of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana.

00:13:08--> 00:13:21

It's nothing new, that they have come up with, but it is something that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned against. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that shaitan will come to one of you.

00:13:23--> 00:13:33

And he will say who created such and such, who created the heavens who created the earth? Who created all of these things? You will say Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:34--> 00:13:40

until he comes, and he says, Then who created a loss of Hannah who were to Hannah,

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

who is a creator of the Creator.

00:13:45--> 00:13:51

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that when he reaches this stage,

00:13:53--> 00:14:08

what do you have to do? Simply seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from shaitan and say amen to Billa say I have believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala affirm your amen in the loss of Hannah who attacked it and then

00:14:09--> 00:14:42

and then cut off those doubts. Stop those don't stop those thoughts. Stop thinking along those lines. And so what we learned from this is where the adults originate from, they are whisperings of shaytaan nothing more than the whisperings of shaytaan How do we deal with them by seeking refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the whisperings of shaitan saying, ooh Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. And then affirming our Eman in the loss of Hannah who want to hide.

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

Finally, among the pieces of golden advice that we can give

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

to those dealing with the urges of the shoe hats, and they will come to us one time or the other. Or we may know people who are deep

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

Dealing with them, especially our young ones. And so we should say to them that just because you may not have the answer to these don'ts and these questions, it does not mean that there is no answer out there.

00:15:17--> 00:15:24

And so something that I have struggled with this dose. And I have tried to find the answer, but I haven't.

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

And so let me just believe in it.

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

And so just because you don't have knowledge of the answer, it doesn't mean that there is no answer out there. And so

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

Allah subhanahu wa, Tada. He told us

00:15:44--> 00:15:50

that when we don't have the answers, it doesn't mean that the answers are not there.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

Why is it

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

that when one of us becomes ill and sick,

00:15:59--> 00:16:20

we don't try to treat ourselves on our own, but rather, we go to the specialists. We go to the doctors to help us find a cure. Why is it that if our car is having problems, we don't just leave it and give up. But rather we take it to a specialist, a mechanic who will help us fix our car.

00:16:22--> 00:16:28

But when we have questions regarding the very fundamentals and basics of our Deen

00:16:29--> 00:16:53

we don't turn to the specialists of wa subhanho wa Taala says first Lu Khaled victory in quantum data Allah moon there if you don't have the answers, ask, ask the people of knowledge if you yourselves don't know. And so my dear brothers and sisters, many of these questions and these notes are not new.

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

They have been dealt with

00:16:58--> 00:17:22

not only in the present by our scholars, but even in the past. questions such as Why is there suffering? When Allah subhana wa tada is All Merciful and Compassionate. This is a question that today atheists use to try to disprove the existence of a loss of Hannah who were to Allah, and they call it the problem of evil.

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

It is a question that our Muslim scholars have answered centuries ago.

00:17:30--> 00:17:49

It is known as the question of the wisdom of Allah subhana wa Tada. What is the Lord's wisdom in allowing suffering, when he is the All Merciful and the all compassionate? Our scholars have written books, answering this question, the answer is there. If only we were to ask the right people,

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

certain

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

certain verses of the Quran, some of us we think are contradictory. We read a verse, we read a Hadith, and we think that there is a contradiction here.

00:18:05--> 00:18:21

And yet these these contradictions that appear to be contradictions have been dealt with by our scholars. All it takes is for us to turn to the specialists and ask and ask if we ourselves don't know

00:18:22--> 00:18:37

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

the reason why many of us

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

feel

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

the reason why many of us

00:20:38--> 00:20:49

feel when it comes to dealing with these shoe bohat. And these doubts that are floating out there

00:20:50--> 00:21:05

and are being used to attack Islam and are being used to try to destroy the very foundation of Islam, you find that most of the times the reason is

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

the lack

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

of your key in the heart,

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

many of us luck,

00:21:15--> 00:21:21

this very fundamental conviction of a man in our hearts

00:21:22--> 00:21:31

for if our beliefs were based upon conviction and certainty, and not based on assumption,

00:21:32--> 00:21:46

then you wouldn't be affected by the shadow hat and these doubts so easily. Why? Because these doubts are based upon what

00:21:47--> 00:22:05

they are based upon uncertainty, they are based upon assumption in the form of certainty. They want you to believe that these are truths that are based upon evidences, but the reality is

00:22:06--> 00:22:15

that they are based on nothing but assumption. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding assumption will now be

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

in love and

00:22:18--> 00:22:26

most of them don't follow anything except assumption. Most of those who follow falsehood and Cooper

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

and don'ts, they are nothing but assumptions.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

And then Allah subhanahu wa taala says, in no one Allah Yoni means

00:22:38--> 00:23:09

that these assumptions can never face off against the truth in any way, shape, or form. And so that is because the difference between the truth and false myths is that the truth is based upon evidence, the truth of Islam is based upon evidence, whereas the false hood of everything else is based upon assumption. And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:23:11--> 00:23:25

the shubo hat, and these doubts are easily dealt with, when we realize that they stand upon a weak foundation. When they stand upon feeble

00:23:27--> 00:23:51

and weak arguments, when we realize that they go against the very fifth raw, that Allah subhanho wa Taala attala has created in each and every single one of us, the fifth row of Allah subhanahu wa Tada This natural disposition that he has created in every single human beings.

00:23:52--> 00:23:56

You find that these don'ts oppose that fifth row.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

And the only reason why we start believing in them

00:24:01--> 00:24:54

is because our fifth row is there. Yes, the our fifth row has become clouded layers of blurriness have covered our fitrah that our subhanho wa Taala created us upon, that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding this fitrah that every single human being is born upon that fitrah the fitrah to know Allah subhanahu wa tada to know about his oneness, and to know about the truth of Islam. Then he said, however, it is the parents who turned him into a Jew. It is a parents who turned him into a Christian. It is the parents who turned him into a fire worshiper. And so it is external factors, the parents the society that causes us

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

to go astray from the fitrah that Allah subhanahu wa tada created

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

Upon. And so these doubts and the shubo hat,

00:25:06--> 00:25:16

they go against the fitrah. They are based upon a weak foundation and weak and feeble arguments. And that's why

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

Allah subhana wa Taala said regarding shaytaan.

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

In Kedah, shaytani can avoid

00:25:25--> 00:25:27

that the plot of shaytaan

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

it's not powerful.

00:25:30--> 00:25:39

It's not something difficult to face off against. His plot is weak, fragile. And that's why

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

when he saw the truth,

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

on the day of better

00:25:47--> 00:25:50

after he promised to aid the most raccoon,

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

but when he saw the angels, and the soldiers of Allah subhanho, wa Taala,

00:25:57--> 00:25:57

he fled.

00:25:59--> 00:26:17

He couldn't remain firm. He fled. And he said, I see what you don't see. And I fear Allah subhanho wa Taala, and the punishment of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so this is why the enemies of Islam, when they spread these dose of Islam,

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

you find that when the defenders of Islam,

00:26:23--> 00:26:36

they come out and defend Islam against these accusations, the same thing, the enemies of Islam do. They flee, they run away, or they resort to mockery.

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

They resort to mockery, they start to make fun of Islam.

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

Or

00:26:45--> 00:26:53

they start calling names or they start to appeal to emotions. They start to appeal to emotions.

00:26:55--> 00:26:57

Look at what Islam does to women.

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

Look at what

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

Islam is all about. It's about bloodshed. It's about this, it's about that.

00:27:05--> 00:27:21

If a war really exists, then why what why are you and me suffering. And so they appeal to emotions, and not solid arguments. My dear brothers and sisters, make sure that what you believe in

00:27:22--> 00:27:45

is based upon certainty upon your clean and not be upon assumption, develop that a man in your heart and make a solid, make it to be based upon certainty upon conviction, and not upon assumption. My dear brothers and sisters, these Chabot hats, these doubts, they are like a wind,

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

a wind that blows about anything that comes in its way.

00:27:52--> 00:27:55

And so if you're late waited,

00:27:57--> 00:27:59

and if you're a man in your heart is late,

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

then when the shubo hat and these doubts come to blow you away very easily.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

But if your man is solid in your heart

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

and it's affirmed and solidified with that you're clean that would that certainty.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

The no wind no matter how

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

from your hearts,

00:28:33--> 00:29:01

and so it goes both ways. My dear brothers and sisters, it goes both ways. When Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, First Cooney as could come, this was Allah subhanho wa Taala his promise that as long as you remember me, then I will remember you. As long as you're a man is there in your hearts, no matter what shaytan comes to try to do to you.

00:29:02--> 00:29:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala will be there to protect your amen in your heart. So we learn how to

00:29:11--> 00:29:17

preserve the boundaries of a loss of Hannah who had to Hannah and the loss of Hannah who went to Allah will protect you.

00:29:18--> 00:29:30

I ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us a man in our hearts that will not shake and I asked Allah Subhana who was added to solidify that man with your clean in him and in his Deen

00:29:33--> 00:29:48
