and his Naik nickname is a Warhammer

who have had an attack till me something about Islam, that I do not need to ask any further questions.
Give me something that suffices me basically Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him
express the ferocity make a plot of your past D. Those who attended the aqidah classes with me would know what I'm talking about. Express testify that asleep that you have in your heart that firm believe that you have in your heart.
Man to believe I believe in Allah who must
then be steadfast, be consistent.
Be firm, on
one of the most
challenging aspects of this religion is consistency.
even in the material world, they tell you, it is easy to reach the top.
But it's difficult to have
to stay there.
Some of you may have hit a good moment with your relationship with Allah
that you tasted the goodness of it. But you didn't stay there.
Because quite frankly is not easy.
And if I'm gonna sit here and pretend it is easy, then I'm not telling you the truth. It's very difficult.
Ross also Lavalier
drone a very interesting picture.
He said in one of the Hadees that a person will wake up in the morning, I believe.
Mina so in the morning is unbelievable. Why you only see Cafiero and applied.
He becomes a disbeliever
imagine the total work change from ILA to
williamsii cafetera Amina, and at night he may attain a man and in the morning he will revert again to disbelief
because of the amount of trials and tribulations in Fitton, which he faces. Look at this other picture. And we'll call bill Juana. Dini.
The one who's holding fast to his Dean is like holding up
a piece of fire.
Well, Phil Harris, the third picture here yamo Roger do they
say a coup de la Kenny McKenna.
And then we'll pass by the grave of another man. And he will say, I wish I am in your place. Why? He's afraid that if he lives longer, he may lose his Deen
the fifth and we'll get to him. And he's wishing actually to leave the dunya. In order to protect his the, it's not easy. It's extremely difficult, extremely difficult. But I want to tell you something.
The first step to attain this, to get to that steadfastness and firmness in the religion
is to actually to believe firmly that you have nothing to do with it.
It can only be provided to you by who?
Look at who Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing the messenger Salama Holly, Solomon Salatin, etc. And he is telling him this
can lie him she
has it been we kept you firm?
You would have what?
Falling into the traps. The previous verse talks about the disbelievers are trying to sway him sallallahu wasallam and take him away from that path. That straight path. Allah is telling him has it been for me, for us for Allah subhanho wa Taala he the new firm,
you would not have been able to protect yourself again is there plans?
You have to believe that when you approach that subject, and this is why if what they say you come out of your mind, your power, and you say you're up without you I cannot do it.
There is always an example I love to present to you because it conveys this message. Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said, When you hear the event
you're supposed to say and repeat after
Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. What should you say?
as you head to La ilaha illAllah
a shadow a number 100 of Rasulullah
topcon to salaat
what should you say?
I can do it
by myself I can
only you can bring me but I'm gonna intent
you must have the intention.
You must turn the engine on.
And he will drive you there.
And this is what is meant Bill had eaten bootsy Abdi my slave
MC in a stand I walk you
through a lot of stealing, just stand I walked.
You just fell. Only Allah Subhana Allah can make this happen. Doc, you must have a very true full intention about it.
And I want to tell you something very interesting about being truthful here. I will present to you two examples, which you probably heard before.
Who are the first three types of Muslims who will be dragged into hell? from the
EU it is a question
Not a thief.
Look at this.
You want to know something?
Is the narrator of this Hadees.
When he used to read this hadith By the way, in multiple occasions, he thinks it
he's a learned person
he used to teach. Imagine someone who teaches that he will do religion
I will fall off in another word in half of someone who has a beautiful recitation
of Allah Subhana. Allah will ask him, I have the my slave method. What did you do? I have taught you what I have revealed upon my messengers.
I love to come and sell to Allah.
I have taught you that evolution. What did you do with it? You're
in one of the wording I use to recite it, and lay the water off in the hall throughout the night. And the two ends of the day.
And another wording I did not leave a chance. But I sat out there in order to teach Allah who will say to him, you're lying. Get that? I will tell you.
You were doing this in order for the tables to say about you this and this walk up clean and you got it.
I didn't deprive you from this one. You were famous in that.
You will you're all over the place in the
face habla de Landa, he will be dragging his face into him.
Look at the other pattern.
A very generous person very giving.
What did you do with the wolf, I did not leave a thing at chance. But for the people to know that to say about you that you have generous and it happened.
And the third one someone actually who given up his life in the battlefield.
Aramco, Shaheed one of the ends, which we all loan to belong to, but what was missing, do
truthfulness and sincerity
what you're doing in order to attain that, this is one example of look at this other example. Look at this.
I've been doing and I always like to use the speedruns because they are not sophisticated. They are
simple, simple and straightforward. They are shooter, they are shooters, they get to the point they don't waste your time.
You know, imagine one of them will come out of the desert.
What is the hour?
Straight? What is the hour?
Another one, you know comes in and question
about, you know other things in in a manner that is very straight in that companion sometimes would actually rebuke him
a little better way for the life in the desert is very interesting. It makes them no politics, they don't get involved in politics. Yeah, just to break the ice for a minute.
There was this, me You
should throw a joke here. And Deanna says,
it can be that serious. So this Emil, every now and then he would go out to the desert to experience some nomadic time.
You know, to hunt
for his servant, prepare for him. A whole sheep,
a whole sheet for him, roasted it and prepare it for him in a very nice way. And you know how the sheep is roasted?
You know that thing and that is a killer.
And he places on top of a blade to fries
that he's sitting down and looking at the sheep and all this food and said, I'm going to eat this for myself. Please go look for somebody to come and eat with me.
And if I need somebody to come share the meal with me, it's not saying that I eat all this food. I'm not gonna finish it and we're gonna end up throwing it after all. So of course he's in the desert is gonna find what happened when
he found the bed when he came. He sat in front of the sheep. It's the first time he sees the truth. Ah,
the amino is eating like he's never been. He's never eaten before. It's like so hungry.
So the Amir is sitting down and look into him. And then at the end is it. Mallika? mooncup boonah. Allah He
Why are you
You eating in a way that you're
Yani making vengeance out of the cheap as if the mother of the sheep knocked you down.
This is Take it easy, you know?
You know what the veteran said to the woman, a Caboose Fukunaga.
And why are you having so much compassion and mercy for the mother of for the sheep as if the mother of the sheep breastfed you?
He doesn't pay attention that he's me that he should be a little bit sensitive, straight shooter
and invited you and
this is someone
hadisha daddy Bill had a Swathi Sunil babinda say, this is someone
who accepted Islam in Mecca.
his life, he's following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He did not leave one occasion but he is by the side of the prophets of Allah.
Allahu Allah, Allah migrated from Mecca to Medina, he did, he did not leave one battle one expedition.
So at one stage of Salah, notice that this, between this man is very devoted to the code.
So in one of the battles at the end, he gets some of the spoils of war for him.
So he said to one of his companions, called him please, and give that to him.
So he gave, and he picks up the stuff, the things the precious things, which are sold Salalah I sell them left for him. And he went in front of the message of a throat in front of him. So
what is this
man have a tobacco I did not follow you because of this
in a moment to be led, I believe the Nepal
was adopted. And I believe you're the Messenger of Allah. And I am striving since that day, in the hills of Allah in order to get hit with an arrow right here.
And to die as I say hits why infigen
please give this to someone else. And he left.
The following day, brothers and sisters in Islam they fell in this man killed in the battlefield.
So the Sahaba came out.
The Man from yesterday.
He said, uh, Who? Who? Is he the one? Yeah. Find out how he was killed. I
guess what? He was hit with an arrow where he pointed yesterday right here.
Susannah made a statement which we all need sort of a more of a sadhaka
when he made that statement, he was truthful.
He meant it and a lot was truthful with him
that's what it takes.
unfortunately, a lot of us make these promises when when we are walking down
a lot of us and for a second
a lot of Muslims you see this between made that statement when he's What?
know that some of us need that commitment when we're what
and yet we breed the problems because we will not fulfill orders just trying to do a look. Look at the
look at this heading. The Sat Nav your customer their lavon
when the Rasul Salallahu alaihe salam conquered Mecca.
But let me finish the story of David would imagine never also Los Alamos, the one who buried him.
He carried him with his own hands.
And he brought him down into the grave and I said, Oh Allah, I am a witness for him in the date.
That this man is this and this.
Just just to show you that there are no because of being truthful.
But look at also sallallahu Sallam when he conquered Mecca.
He named six individuals.
Of course, the results are seldom given protection for the rest of the team
that are not going to harm anyone.
In spite of what you have done against me and my companions, you're safe.
If you're out in the garden, you're safe. If you are in the house of Abu Sufyan, you're safe and so forth. But he said to his companions, six of them, killed them even if they are hanging at the curtains of the car
up to lumen okemo alakina Dr. storica
at crema, the son of Abuja
when his father was killed in bed, Karima or few years,
he talks on actually, you cannot imagine what he did against the Messenger of Allah sallallahu some of you may not know that him and Harlan was the one who brought the Muslims and often we always cite Hadith. Also, achromat was on the other side
of the live NAB some lots of new sababa live in the hopper, and two women, six of them
at crema is our man here, while the other one
when a crema found out that he is on that list, he fled
he went to get the governorship
running away he's gonna be killed.
So Panama in the middle of the sea,
in the middle of the sea,
a storm erupts
look everyone on board of that ship is a Kaffir is not a Muslim. So the captain of the ship stood up and he said i yohannes everybody on board here
and no landing gear Jia Komiyama en la la la la la la la.
No one can save you accept the true God now these are those that you shave and
Lombok at the end Cody ends
none can save you or Allah.
So let's call upon Allah truly the true God now a true God.
When you have inside you, you know,
you know what law you know.
Well, that sometimes we get hit by these calamities in order to remove and abolish, clean up all these veils on the surface, the surface of our filter, so that it's clean, it's exposed again, it's back.
And even the cancer knows this. Even the calf knows this.
The father of mirandola sign his name is Poseidon. Nobody came to the prophet SAW salah and then also ask him, how many gods Do you worship?
You know what he said seven,
six, fill up six in earth.
We're heading to seven and the seventh one is in the row. Susannah immediately asked him, Are you limited to only Ravi kawara? When you get in trouble which of the seven Do you go for God Allah de
barro. So these six are work for fun.
These are just to satisfy what
the hollowness inside you that
imagine the captain is not a Muslim is telling the only Allah can save that ship and save us. Look at the agreement. And we'll go back to the promise being proof. Again, I didn't I didn't sway away from the subject and back to the academic man. If these idols have been fighting the Muslims and the messengers for cannot help me right here
cannot help me in this situation they need us. They do not deserve me to worship them out. Nor they deserve me to find the Muslims for them. By Allah.
By Allah. Let in. Look at the promise now look at being truthful. Let in a journey Allah, if Allah will save me.
If Allah will save me from this
let's happen a llama from sal Allahu Allah says I will go to him
while he didn't know who our food one kariba
and Oh Allah, you will make him
pardon and forgive me so that I can serve this thing.
Allah Subhana Allah save the ship?
And he went back to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he accepted Islam.
You know I Karima the son of Abuja, the CEO of this oma.
He was killed in a battle called Delia MOOC. later after the time of the Prophet
bringing Islam to Syria to share
and he suffered so many wounds, he was in pain.
And one of the last things that he used to say Akhil camisa told Dr. Neil Rasulullah
sallallahu the Messenger of Allah would see me like this he would be happy
that I pay back
did I fulfill that promise?
Again, Allah enabled him because what he was what
you see, you may sit here tonight and say I want to be upright on the day.
I want to 18 to be my hero. five daily prayers never abandon that level. But if there is no truthfulness, Allah is not gonna die because Allah was gonna do it. And I hate use that line but it's so you can be blasted with a lot you can be
because Allah knows, inside you, Allah knows you, Allah.
Ya Allah subhanho wa Taala says he knows the secret inside you
deeper than that. So you can pretend with a law you have to be what you have to really mean it and when you mean it, brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah will guide you to it but
here is the means I promise only half hour or so inshallah. So we're getting the
here is the means.
And one of the great means and if you're sitting out here and I hate to use such a language, but we live in a culture that
I assume that were that were
your New Year's resolution is after tonight, maybe five 6 million times.
So it's out there.
But here is something please make it your new resolution.
And you will see
how much difference this will make in your life.
You will see but be truthful about it.
And I will give it to you from Hadith in that is sort of
a de facto ban of no matter. What Adam Schiff when Sahih
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says is that evil
differ firm again it's the same thing.
The upright don't the work
be consistent, when to show
meaning. If you want things that can help you to stay upright. He can even count them they are what
this Dean has a lot of things that can help you to stay upright.
But here is one thing that
you cannot abandon or you must do, what level and how euro Maluku masala
The best thing that can help you stay consistent firm is
the five daily prayers.
that's it. That's right here.
Where are you from the salon.
But the salon which the messenger sallallahu Sallam told us salata Navy
air who a lot of the brothers complained chef we'd eat in the woods have enough solid that can handle fracture you will come the salon is supposed to prevent us from committing fracture, which is anything that leads to adultery and Moncure anything that is haram
yet Ishihara personally but I'm still more what kind of salon
the salon which the prophet SAW Selim played, the quality salon.
And this is something by the way that you don't just find yourself in you have to actually exercise and exercise and keep going until you develop it.
It's not something that you find in the first Salah that you observe, it actually takes what you build up to it
until you reach that state of mind. And there was also levada. Selim, he tells us that some Muslims will observe the salah and all what they get of reward out of that Salah 10
Ninth, eighth, seventh, six, fifth full
that me and one time he said to one companion go back and pray because what
that Salah that you observed is you did not pray
the Jaffa suddenly the inoculum to suddenly
this is the Salah that is meant in the Hadith level and Hierarch Malika masala Salah here as well what's meant by it is the five daily prayers, but also what is meant by it
because that is the meaning of a Salah linguistically of Salah to Latin here
hoodman unwary him take from the wolf or Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam sada zeca sada kusa key him via that they may beautify themselves through it was suddenly IRA him meaning what make dua for them
Christians by the way normally come after us and say you guys

And in fact, what I'm talking about
is Dena, a Scirocco and Muscatine

Gathering the companionship,
who's your friend, who you hang around with, you know, out of your forehead.

your friend, we'll get you to do what he's doing.
That's why he's hanging around with you.
Have a hook? These are some symbol means and put on. We'll see. And hear the stories of the prophets and the messengers and the companions. This all very helpful, helpful. Yes.
One of the greatest benefits and I close with this is not really a Commodore lesson. Not yet.
Dinner is not ready yet.
Just kidding. It's done. I will finish here.
You know, one of the
being consistent as an author, firm and steadfast on the dean. Is that the time
when you will die,
or lie, there is a benefit out there. Now, the scholars they tell you what
the most difficult times in our life of a human are the three transitional
the three transitional moments.
What are these transitional moments
when you come into this world, when you're bored
when you leave this world
and when you Arise for the next world
tough times. When you in transit you know when you're
and this is why Isa Alia Salatu. Salam ala salatu salam, they need the same.
What did he say? Was Salam O Allah, O Allah pour your peace of
ami Yama will lead to
why oma amo
why oma? Oba your peace be upon me from you, the day that ambu the day that I shall die, and the day that I shall be raised up again.
When you're born Subhana Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah eurosender the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says mabin mo Lu, the new La La La Jolla stay hidden lusardi ha, every newborn who comes into this world must come out cry, why they are crying.
Imagine shaitan maybe he
should look a baby. He actually hits the venous side like this
shaitan he goes to the beam, I'm here
goes to a big
Basically letting him know me.
I'm your guy.
I'm waiting for you until you grow up.
Except that he said
because of the last
time you're born, cry,
that look at the time, or the time of death is very interesting. They tell you what.
And I love that statement. They see when you came into this world. everyone around you are so happy.
And you're the only one cry.
So here you are. You've
got a beautiful baby. Everybody is happy. Make sure when you leave that world that everyone's crying and you're the only one who's laughing is happy.
When people die that is to advocate
smiling. Yeah, like give us.
Everyone is crying and he could be the only one was
But why he would be happy because of this. Look at the verse. And the verse, by the way is identical from the Hadith. Is that one of the Hadith?
Remember the Hadith that I started with my talk with? The Prophet said to the companion who asked what say what
I say what I believe in Allah and
look at the verse in lady Naka, who
are a Buddha law.
angels will descend upon them. yaku is up to
someone the prophets of Allah made dua for and he says Allah Maha Lumo that we owe Allah teach him the understanding of the Quran, Allah best at the time of this.
And we read the Hadith.
Or Hadith is the one who killed the 100 souls, that there is one group of angels who attend right before the arrival of the angel of death, in order to breathe.
The disease the Angel of Death is so busy because there is only one Angel of Death only one and he is supposed to do.
So is very busy only arrives to extract the soul but there are angels who prepare is like the anesthesia group. You know that the people who come before the surgery, they prepare you imagine a person is laying down? How do you feel bla bla has and he will see angels very bright in faces and shiny and they will sit next to him and they will give him the glass hiding. They will say and fall for the
fear of not good evening. Don't be afraid of us.
Don't be afraid of
you know again, you know like that anesthesia thing.
Mr. Abu z, don't be afraid. gonna give you a little shot. Then you're gonna go to sleep, you're not gonna feel a thing, then the doctor is gonna have a surgery. They're gonna be waking up in general.
That's exactly what it is. That's how they give him that lotta out. Because imagine you're gonna see angels in front. You're gonna be
Who are you? Don't be afraid. We're here to take you to the next slide. Then you start grieving over what
you felt well I don't grieve over them. I love it. I love it.
This is the reward the finish the karma. And this is a lot
to celebrate the summer probably a lot on one day he made that statement in front of Asia.
And he said this man had been on law he had been madhulika whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah would love to meet him. Woman Katie hellicar Allah And whoever resents and hates the meeting of Allah. Allah will hate to meet him as well.
And the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim they know for a fact that the only time we're going to see a lot is after we die.
For you, you can see a lot in this one you cannot meet a line is
she immediately looked at the Prophet salla salon and she said Dr. rasulillah, messenger of Allah, Nanayakkara who,
who among us, doesn't hate death.
For me, to love to meet a lot, I must work I must love
to die. And who doesn't hate death is not like this Jarosz hate it is, when a believer is about to die, angels of mercy will come.
And they will give him the glad tidings of gender
of good things that await him. At this time, he will say, Yeah, let's go.
Y'all know, that's good.
Even when they are carrying him after death,
when the righteous person is being carried, what does he say?
The moon but the moon, let's go.
So, this is again a reward that you get full stack karma
for being consistent is the time of death. Not only this one line for law, he
is an engineer if you're sick of the domain.
If you're sick of money, of wealth,
this department is going
stir karma is the way Allah subhana wa Taala is addressing the Jeep
fuselage engine, well, what is the formula
what we'll do for the magic of the
if you will, and Pura
vida de la

If there is a resolution Algeria should have tonight and intention, a sincere truth for one that you want to be straight forward with a law be a bright, be consistent.
