men who want

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

while Fiddler can do no

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

wonder you will be really rasuluh

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

dear brothers and sisters,

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

if we were to ponder over

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

some of the causes behind

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

why many of us constantly sin

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

we will find that one of the leading causes

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

is a lack

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

of this sense

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

of being under the surveillance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

this lack

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

of feeling the Presence of Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

watching over us

00:02:01--> 00:02:10

and so we lack the fear of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so this is one of the leading causes behind why

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

we transgress the limits of Allah subhanahu wa Tada, day in day out

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

in our daily lives.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

Wherever we go,

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

wherever we are,

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

we are being

00:02:37--> 00:02:37


00:02:40--> 00:02:42

And we're under surveillance

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

by cameras.

00:02:46--> 00:02:50

And so imagine if you were driving and you saw a speed camera, what would you do?

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

Would you continue to speed? Or would you slow down?

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

If a thief he saw security cameras, would he deer

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


00:03:06--> 00:03:07

and Rob

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

that place that shop or that home?

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

And so now imagine

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

imagine that each and every single one of us

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

has have a camera

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

in front of us

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

watching our every single move from the day you were born until the day we die.

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

Would we dare do things that we do today?

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

We wouldn't.

00:03:43--> 00:03:51

We would be afraid. What would the people think of me? What would my friends think of me? What would my relatives think of me?

00:03:55--> 00:04:02

And so we're afraid we're afraid of what we're afraid of becoming exposed. We're afraid

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

of disgrace.

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

And so my dear brothers and sisters, the question is, how about Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

How about Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created you.

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

The one

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

who brought you into this world, the one

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

who is constantly taking care of you,

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

providing for you, day in day out. The one who is constantly watching you.

00:04:40--> 00:04:40

The one

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

who has knowledge of absolutely everything.

00:04:48--> 00:04:55

Even the most remote and tiniest of things, the one who knows has full knowledge

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

of the movement of a black and white

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

On a black rock, in The Dark Knight,

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

the one who knows

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

every single leaf that drops to the ground,

00:05:13--> 00:05:45

from every single tree, on the face of this earth, the one who has knowledge of that which is seen that which we can see, and perceive with our senses, and that which we cannot perceive and see with our senses, that which we have discovered until today, and that which is still beyond what we have discovered. Our problem today, my dear brothers and sisters, is that we are missing.

00:05:46--> 00:05:51

We are missing this sense of the civilians of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

We are missing this fear of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana

00:05:57--> 00:06:04

that we should have in our hearts, and instead, instead, we fear the people.

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

We don't mind committing sin behind closed doors.

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

But we wouldn't commit those sins if it was in front of people.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20


00:06:21--> 00:06:24

Because we fear we fear people more than we fear Allah.

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

Whereas Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us the exact opposite.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

ferrata who whom waha Huni in quantum meaning,

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

do not fear them, but rather fear me if indeed you are true believers. Allah subhanho wa Taala here

00:06:45--> 00:06:51

he conditioned our amen to the fear of Allah instead of the fear of the people

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


00:06:56--> 00:06:59

do not fear the people, but rather fear me.

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

we need to develop this fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala where does it come from?

00:07:12--> 00:07:19

It comes from the cautiousness of Allah subhanahu wa taala. Once we are conscious of Allah,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

completely aware

00:07:24--> 00:07:33

of Allah subhanho wa Taala watching over us, this is when we will develop that fear of Allah subhana wa tada

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

I want us to ponder over this heavy

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

narrated narrates from Allah subhanho wa Taala in this hadith

00:07:48--> 00:07:53

where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Your kulula who?

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

Allah azza wa jal says,

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

Why zety?

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

What is it?

00:08:02--> 00:08:06

De ko Fany one as you might know who

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

what edge macrolevel

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

am naini

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

By my might,

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

I will never

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

bring together

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

meeting my servant, to suffer fear twice, meaning once in the dunya and once in the

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

nor will I allow my servant

00:08:41--> 00:08:45

to feel safe and secure twice, meaning once in the dunya and once in that

00:08:47--> 00:08:54

and then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah subhanahu wa tada says, either I mean any if it dunia

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

a half to two young male pa

and so

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

if he feels safe in the dunya

00:09:13--> 00:09:19

he feel safe and secure. he commits sin D and D Oh, he doesn't fear me.

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

He's safe. He feels everything's okay. I can commit these sins.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

Nothing's gonna happen to me.

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

Then I will make him suffer from fear on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

But if he fears me in this dunya

00:09:42--> 00:09:48

he doesn't transgress my limits, because he fears my punishment

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

than I will make him to feel to feel safe and secure on the Day of Judgment.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

by which people look

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

at who is a man

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

is a man someone who is rich.

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

Someone who is well off?

00:11:49--> 00:11:55

Or is a man someone who is brave and courageous? Who doesn't fear anyone?

00:11:58--> 00:12:03

He does whatever he wants, because he's not afraid of anyone.

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

Rather, everyone is afraid of him.

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

Is that

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

the definition of who a man is?

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

Allah subhanahu wa tada in the Quran.

00:12:19--> 00:12:22

He gives us the definition of true men.

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

Reja Lula told him to

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


00:12:31--> 00:12:35

I decree learning what you call a surah. What eater is

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

that they are men.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

After he mentioned

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

that it is men

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

who stand in worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala feeble Utila in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. After that Allah describes these men,

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

Reja, they are men who are not distracted,

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

by trade by business.

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

from what? From the remembrance of Allah

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

nor from establishing their Salah.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

Nor from giving nzqa

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

their day to day lives.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

They're seeking

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

sustenance, making a living

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

none of that distracts them

00:13:31--> 00:13:46

from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala from establishing their Salah, from paying there's a cap and so they are conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not hateful or not heedless of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And then

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

after mentioning this,

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

Allah Subhana who would know how to further describes them?

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

Yo hapuna, Yeoman takala, boozy Hill kulu.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

And they are men who

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

they fear a Day

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

in which

00:14:15--> 00:14:20

in which the eyes and the hearts will tremble out of fear.

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

And so these are men

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

who their fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

it does not cause them to transgress

00:14:36--> 00:14:41

against the bounds of Allah subhanho wa Taala the limits that Allah subhanho wa Taala has set.

00:14:45--> 00:14:51

They fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and so they don't transgress against each other.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

They don't harm anyone,

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

either with their words or with their actions.

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

They fear Allah Subhana who would data and the punishment of Allah and so they don't harm themselves, because they know that every single disobedience to Allah, it means

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

it means oppression to the self, injustice to oneself.

00:15:21--> 00:15:39

And so my dear brothers and sisters, these are men who are fully aware that they will stand before Allah subhana wa tada for a day, yo Metropolis surah air for a day in which even the innermost secrets in the hearts will become exposed.

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

My dear brothers and sisters, that is a day

00:15:48--> 00:15:52

that is a day that they fear a Day that will be extremely hot.

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

A day

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

that will be so hot.

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

For some of us in this dunya we can go a few minutes.

00:16:06--> 00:16:11

If the power goes out in the summer, and we don't have any air conditioning,

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

some of us we can go even a few minutes without.

00:16:18--> 00:16:27

So how about a day that will last 50,000 years, a day in which the sun will only be

00:16:29--> 00:16:32

will only be the distance of a mile away.

00:16:34--> 00:16:42

It is because of this My dear brothers and sisters, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will shade certain people

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

under his shade.

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

On this day in which there will be no shade except his shade.

00:16:52--> 00:17:07

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that there are seven who will be under that shade on the Day of Judgment. If we were to observe who the seven are, we would find that they had this quality.

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

They had this quality

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

of constantly being

00:17:15--> 00:17:34

feeling that they are under the watchful eye of Allah subhanho wa Taala under this obedience of Allah subhana wa Tada. And so they feared Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so one of these individuals, a man who a very beautiful woman

00:17:35--> 00:17:46

who had a high status in society, she called him invited him to Xena. And so he said, No, I fear Allah subhana wa tada and other men

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

who went into seclusion

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

where no one can see him.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

And he remembers his sins. And he remembers that he will stand before Allah

00:18:01--> 00:18:13

being brought to account for the sins. And so as a result, his eyes shed tears. He doesn't fear the people. He's in seclusion. No one is watching him.

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

And so he shed his tears out of the fear of a loss of one of

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

my dear brothers and sisters.

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

he said man hoffa Adulyadej

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

woman everledger

00:18:39--> 00:18:40

Bella Holman zil

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

in Silla de la jolla

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

in Seattle, Washington.

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

that the one who fears meaning

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

that a person who fears an enemy

00:19:00--> 00:19:01


00:19:02--> 00:19:20

highway robbers when he sets out on his journey, he fears he fears his enemy, or he fears someone will attack him on this journey. What does he do at the ledge, he sets out on his journey in the beginning of the night.

00:19:21--> 00:19:25

And whoever sets out on his journey in the beginning of his in the beginning of the night,

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

then he will reach his destination safe and sound.

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

And so we in this dunya are on a journey to Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

those who will reach their destination in Jannah. Or those who will fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so they will work hard. They will set out on this journey, fearful of Allah and they will work hard

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

To reach their destination, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Seattle La Jolla, that the commodity of Allah is extremely precious, expensive. And in Sylhet, Allah Hill Jana and the product, the commodity of a lot is nothing but gender and Allah subhanho wa Taala said what a man hoffa McCollum or OBE, one had enough to handle our for indulgent. netta he,

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

as for those who fear standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

and they prevent themselves

00:20:42--> 00:21:04

from following their desires. It is they, it is they who will end up in the home. In the home of gentlemen, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among those who fear him Subhana who would to Allah, and to make us from among the inhabitants of Jenna.
