was several of the fair to her wakulla modesetting visa wakulla de donathan Bala workqueue lavallette in feanor pathways to change.
This is the theme
for the conference this year.
inshallah next weekend, we will have this conference on Friday, Saturday on Sunday, but the focus will be on Sunday in sha Allah.
And a lot of the subjects brothers and sisters in Islam are related to technology.
And fortunately, a lot of us are overwhelmed by
the day to the discoveries once it comes with acknowledges and, and a lot of us jump into it and a lot of us do develop some sort of addictions actually become addicted to it. And so we're bringing in actually professionals, we're not addressing the subject from religious perspective only, rather, our emphasis on professionals, people who are in the field of psychology, like the people who study the brain and the process. And of course, we're here to add to it, the religious side read
books, you know, hamdulillah join us maybe later on or that would be a good chance for you, at least if you're not Al Hamdulillah infected with any of these addictions, at least you become aware of them. Awareness is also important in sha Allah.
But let me address the subject of change, you know, making a change, we always I want to change, you know, I wanna I want to be a little bit different and, and all of us talk about that, you know, that I want to be somebody who's better, you know, whether individuals or communities alike both
and a lot of us somehow somewhat lack
the knowledge regarding one fact which is Allah subhana wa Ayana is the one who makes the change, not you.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who will make the change, not you.
But there is a contingency.
There is a condition
for Allah subhanho wa Taala to do this for you
and that condition, brothers
and sisters in Islam was mentioned
verse number 11.
In Allaha, lair you are you mad
hatter, you have you met de m foresee him.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will not
in Allah lay over you, Allah subhanho wa Taala will not, will not change the condition
So the evidence here that Allah is the one who makes the change, not you. But here it is, unless they change from within. They change their inner self, the insight, they change the neffs brothers and sisters in Islam.
And this verse, a lot of the schools have explained it in multiple ways. But Allah Subhana Allah in this verse, he used what is known in the English language, by that which Allah subhana wa Taala will not change that which you're experiencing, unless you change from within that which could mean good. Meaning if Allah subhana wa tada is blessing you with a bounty. Allah will keep giving you that bounty, as long as you do not change.
As long as you keep gratitude, you use that bounty, to serve Allah and the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In the other hand, if you're going through a calamity,
if you're going through a calamity, Allah subhana wa tada will not lift that calamity from you, unless you change from within.
Unless you change from within. This is the meaning of the verse. The first point that I need to address with you why Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the only one who is to make the change for us. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala does not change.
And what we mean by Allah does not seem to pan with Allah. He does not get affected by what happens.
You see, one day you're happy because somebody made you upset. You changed one day you
know what, you're happy somebody made you happy? Another day? Allah No.
One of the names of Allah subhana wa tayana s.
What does it mean to set
the source of peace? After each Salah as
a stone feudal law, stone,
Allah whom? The seller
woman casilla Oh Allah, you are the source of peace, because nothing changes you.
Later, Hulu Sina toon
no slum both asleep. No sleep overtakes Allah Subhana overcomes Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is why you look at every icon, every object, every entity worship, besides Allah, it belongs to that world of change.
used to eat and drink that changing.
He needed to sleep changing. He can be a god.
Abdullah nadie alpha and this is the the wording of Lima Muslim because the Hadith was narrated also by Abu hurayrah and became a Muslim five years just right before the death of the prophet SAW Selim. And a lot of the people jumbo Nabil hurayrah saying how in the world is Abu hurayrah here that Hadees
the Hadith when Khadija Rosa LaWanda
the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
brought food one day
To the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was in the key.
Angie Lille was with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said to gibreel Ali Salaam said to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam be here for the job.
This is Khadija
the dam in fee HIPAA.
She brought to you a vessel with food and drink. Bolivia her mingma B has Selim
conveyed to her, the salon from her mood from Allah and from me as well. whether she'll be by eatin Phil Jenna, and give her a Black Friday of our house of Gemini men Casa por la nasaga fee he will.
Look when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
told Khadija this. Look how she answered.
She didn't say to Allah, Allah.
Allah as a seller, you don't send salam to Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the source of peace.
And from home comes a seller comes in peace tranquility, serenity, Wiley kawada gibreel a seller and upon you your sudama gb Salam from Allah.
This Hadith is the so they say however
mrrc of Sahaba Yeah, and he heard it from another Sahabi but do not use of Abu hurayrah of lying the Hadith because you're not Muslim, but this is beside the point inshallah.
So, the cornerstone brothers and sisters in Islam, for you to make a change is your own neffs
your own self enough's enough is the place where do you should go?
Now Alhamdulillah A lot of us know very well
about the body.
What to do with it. gotta eat well,
some people so parallel and I come for pleasure. I see them waking up with their dogs like and running, working out.
That's where is the neffs in all of this. First of all, you need to realize this.
You and me are made of two things put together.
Two things put together.
which you don't see.
But you believe it's there.
It's something very interesting about the atheist. Sometimes you find very interesting things on online. So look at the atheist. He believes that there is a Wi Fi
and he uses it and he wrote don't don't see it and you want to see a lot to believe in Allah.
You have the sun you have the moon. You know so you want to believe in Allah you believe there is a Wi Fi we have a Wi Fi here. It is the Wi Fi was the electricity.
Likewise Subhan Allah.
Look at the next war fee. kung fu
when Allah subhanaw taala spoke about the
the universal sign signs of his existence he said and yourself. You believe that you have a soul inside your body. Do you see that soul? You don't see it? But what is the evidence?
The evidence or the
root of your loved one who was

life begins with that show. The power life ends when the two separate.
At the date of death, Allah subhanho wa Taala sends an angel again. But this angel is called the angel of death.
It's never been established, made of me.
only at our Falcon melaku local Mountie levy Waukee law school the angel of this the Angel of Death comes sits next to the person who is dying and he calls up in the host he calls upon his soul to come out of his buddy

If the person did good with his life
now if the person did not do well
de these shows out for a show it is live begins with a body and soul coming together. life ends with a body and soul separating
most of human life a lot of you didn't realize
that the soul
is the one thing which stays
the body gets eaten.
The moment that your soul leaves your buddy I tell you something. Go to the person who loves you the most
and ask him Can you please keep my buddy in your bed next to you?

You are a human because of the soul.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has taken many
at HS plural
using elements of the universe and Allah is entitled to do this. Because they created this universe he can take off from the sun on the moon. You know the longest author in the Quran.
The longest in the Quran, on this subject.
Count with me was some syllable
by the sun and the time when it rises in the morning when you come
by the moon when it comes at night
man the sir.
loser, the one who corrupt his soul
The one who purify the soul.
dounia Allah when Allah subhanho wa Taala giving you that soul, when you're 120 days in the womb of your mother, the son was ready to go both ways. Your job is to purify,
purify, so the engine of death when he comes to call it out, he calls it good soul come out, not bad. So
that's the whole mission of the human
is to take care of that soul make sure that it's purified.
We've come in and we've hired people coming with all
kinds of ways to purify the soul.
We get so called extreme Sophie's. Okay, you have to fast 40 days nonstop to purify your soul.
You have to go somewhere in the desert and sit by yourself and don't do anything. Give up this world.
You got a lot of people say
do yoga. Join a yoga class
or go to the yoga class
that's good for the soul. Well, some people go on and smoke weed and say man, I feel
feel happy. Joy. My soul that's why shaytan called liquor What?
spiritual equal spiritual things
that's like the you know when the when the cows when they you given them that that food that had that hormones in it. Now what did they end up with the mad cow disease? somebody goes out there. And he goes and he spends a whole night drink in Miller Lite. Bob light Listen, I see this umbrella.
All of this and then in the morning he
and he works upset. That's mad cow disease or smoking weed. And then he goes
yeah, that's the substance which I presented for the soul.
That's the substance. Look at the verse. Yeah.
Well, you may see one
shape or if
it's the work of shaper, boss I don't like school. I like to compete with what is divine.
The Quran really sounds good people like the Quran. What can I come up with?
Some people nowadays have a low high musical.
Okay, this these guys will go to the masjid. They really feel good, then they come out really feel good about themselves. And it's true. You see Allah subhanaw taala say
maristella comun Phoebe nimbu
they study in the book of Allah for things we have looked at these four things.
Allah tala you Sakina
Madiba Java when he was dying, when he was dying. You know what he said, I will miss in this world. Two things I will miss in this world. The Gathering of knowledge, sitting in a circle of knowledge,
to learn the religion to learn Islam
because of the feeling that you get. Some people think that that's the brother who teaches has to be on here, or this guy is not
famous, not this.
Well, one day I was I was teaching a class and he
In my village, cul de sac, which is really a very fundamentals of a very special one law he I saw one of my farmers sitting in that gallery
so I'm looking at him
I you know it by heart that he's illiterate, he's a farmer.
The stuff like this, you need to be a student of not there are some foundation for you to grasp some of these terminologies. So, raise
the mana, you know what he said, I'm not sitting here for you.
I'm sitting here for Baraka lis, I'm sitting here to get the Baraka of them as well, like, he was more more understanding than me.
understood what he meant. He just wouldn't sit in that gathering.
Imagine there are angels
and they look for circles where there is knowledge is being taught. People are teaching now.
What's this right here we found one here and they circle
will affect whether this is true.
the mercy of Allah will descend upon them.
And Allah subhana wa Taala will mention you need image in this
Because you're sitting in a gathering because you look how you feel.
You go out of it. This is what these guys bring kinberg light and Bubba Miller that's what he's trying to feel. This is the feeling that he's trying to get, you know, let people have this way you feel hi exactly like him.
He had I'm sorry.
This is mad cow disease. And this is what is meant for them. That's what I'm trying to say is Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the messengers with the curriculum. If you implement in your lives, you're gonna you're going to purify your nuts You do not have to go to the full fish. You will not have to go to the gas. You do not have to go to the booties, you don't have to do this.
So why is Elina
they asked you about the soul
and inshallah maybe later on I'll explain the difference between the soul and the two. That's something later on.
In embryo A, B,
the soul Allah created it
and you have so little knowledge about it. Or you find people mosaicing incarnation or after you die, your soul is going to come down and go to somebody else. oldest How do you know? How do you
for Allah subhana wa tada reveal the guidance for you and me to purify that so look at this hadith
in a shaytan AR t to either coffee at your car haidakhan fella
when you go to sleep at night,
right before you go to sleep shaitan ties three knots in this area right here.
and he will say what you
you're a hard working man.
You have a family to provide for
Come on, get your sleep get your rest. Don't think about waking up at all for fragile gadget or anything. Don't do this. Come on. Sleep, relax. Policy these guys they want to waste their time and energy
when he wakes up if you decide to disobey shikon of course when you wake up the first thing that you should do the Corolla, Corolla when you wake up your sleeve and say Alhamdulillah in Latvia here in America no
one not is untie this gun. You
to his gun.
You're good to go. Bring them bring just three Raka Zf Yeah, he just bring three rockets.
Nobody said 11 just three star two three.
Sure to us to get the sonego
karma if he does this us Bajpai
he will wake up in the morning and his neck says What are you
what life can be between being tired and lethargic? You know what I'm talking about.
But if I can fix you and and you listen to the show, if you go on sleeping, by the way, this hobby A lot of us have just applied it to federal law to federal.
And there are some days not like now in federal comes at five or 430 in the morning a lot of Muslims don't wake up in
the wake of the actual time so we're not talking about the machine at all, you know, and and some of them call us and say, oh, should I wake up my child?
at seven o'clock?
Yeah, yeah, if there is a phone this house will not wake up your child.
You will wake them up to save them right? save them from the Hellfire, train them to brief agile on time. And a lot of that he will say, if he doesn't play at night, if he skips regimen, all of our spa hobbies and knifes his nuts in the morning is
a defining issue. He's looking for a fight.
And the first fight is gonna start with his wife.
That's my second
little schemata Allah subhana wa tada brought down the guidance for you to purify this Salah. This Sekar this fasting is for you to purify your neffs is not the ogre is not the alcohol is not the marijuana. None of this is not the addiction to whatever it is none of this, if you want to purify this neffs to breathe it for the angel of death, to be a god.
Fill the guidance
Allah Allah Allah Allah,
Allah, your poodle haka
wash, Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa rahmatullah wa Taala. Many
brothers and sisters in Islam, by default, minus, minus, and you'll notice
I started with me so I'm not insulting you, or ignorance.
There is ignorance.
in our opinion.
we presented the freedom to choose to purify the nafs or not to beautify the neffs using them and using the guidance, not the extreme, so not the dancing, not the music, not the meditation. Not
none of that. That's all mad cow disease, mad cow disease right away. The Prophet broad enough to purify the snuffs, you have the freedom to choose.
You said no.
We, the heaven and the earth said no. We said yes. Why? Because of ignorance.
Sure enough, one la Harajuku de
la la la, la,
la La Countess Quran Allah subhana wa Taala brought you out of the wombs of your mother's know nothing, but he given you the faculties with which you can learn some he can hear, read, reflect, so that you may be grateful for your first step to beautify your neffs Elaine
now that you have the religion
understand I'm not talking about the knowledge of this world but the knowledge brothers and sisters when when you carry it when they carry you to the grave.
They're not going to ask you one plus one equal what?
They're not going to ask you they're not going to ask you

What about you messenger that's the knowledge, the knowledge that you need, acting upon this knowledge and inshallah next jumaane Sharma will continue with the subject.
act upon this knowledge.
That is two,
four steps right here to beautify your nerves. Now one,
learn the religion. I'm not asking you to be a scholar.
Learn what you need to practice Salah
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at one time a companion buried next to him. He said the salon
I said, Go back and pray because he did not pray.
How many Muslims pray now? But they don't pray. They pray but they don't pray
zeca what what do you need to act on it? This is one to act on this knowledge. Free call people to it.
And Subhan Allah Allah revealed those four in one chapter in the Quran Allah Manisha Fei said about it. If the Quran was only this chapter, it would have been enough evidence again is the human
indeed all of mankind have losers except in the levina
acted upon it. What are
they enjoying what is good? You tell me I have the dog. I tell you I did wrong. It's not only one person who does it. Nobody's perfect here. We all make mistakes. You remind me I remind you, what are some of the Sabri?
