my brothers and sisters in Islam
I'm gonna speak randomly here. I was
reviewing something and I will go back to it hopefully. But just right before I
I got on the ball, but
I learned that one of the dearest brothers to my heart has passed away.
Brother Nabeel jwala
he's a Pakistani brother. His father just passed away.
And I just visited the brother, I believe Wednesday or Wednesday
and he had a cancer
And he caught pneumonia, that's a lung disease or,
and the cancer spread all over his body.
And basically, the hospital told him, you're done, you know, you have six months or so. And they told his family, whether you take him to a hospice, I think that's the place where people
spend their final days.
Or, you know, take him home.
And I can tell the condition of the brother is unbearable.
And his family are very disturbed.
What are we going to do? throw our father into a hospice, and we bring him home, there is no way we can take care of his medical condition.
So I spoke to my brother and I, you know, the, the the thing that when you visit the SEC and you know that there is a chance for the thief who only speak about the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala,
about how merciful Allah is.
So I told him, Allah will take care of you.
When he actually told me know who and I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Online, what just came out of my mouth. I said, Allah will take care of you. Allah will manage your fear.
We know the brother, very punctual in the Salah. And I will not forget this day when we started this project. Two years back, this community center, he was out there with his family, from A to Z.
And he's always there. And I had no doubt that Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of his condition.
And he ends up dying in a morning of a Friday.
If you have faith in the revelation, this is the best depth a person may receive.
Yeah, it was a gentle pass by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he said, mystery on almost 100 min.
This person whether he rested from the world, or whether he is being rested from
after the genocide passed by Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was asked by his companions Yara Salalah messenger of Allah. Mel mystery woman, Mustafa Herman, who is the person who's rested, and the person who's rested from color from
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In the movement, either met His Torah harming him madonia
the believing slave of Allah when he dies, he rests from this dunya
Why are the hubway Laura Mattila
and he goes to the caretaker, Allah subhanaw taala from the moment of death
in alladhina, cada una la
indeed those who testified that the Lord is Allah and they were steadfast on that testimony. Angels will descend upon them, giving them comfort.
At the time of death
You go back to Allah subhana wa tada and he takes care of you. You do not need a hospice. You do not need You do not need
brothers and sisters in Islam.
Imagine just two days before the death of the man. He's asking me am beginning to miss my Salah. Can you help me what I need to do?
What I need to do? I can't make what
I what I need to do.
What an end you know what an end. What an end brothers and sisters in Islam knows Joomla
Ania Taka Bella home in Australia. We hope in Allah subhana wa tada that he will accept him amongst the righteous and the public.
is a mere loss of Hannah with Allah give us a similar in rather better than this.
when you connect with Allah subhana wa tada when you rectify your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah will manage your life for you.
Allah will take care of your business. What our lightest breed assessors used to say, Don't request certain things from Allah.
Allah manage my fields, manage my business for me.
I'm gonna just seek the means I'm gonna walk like the birds flying, but you manage it for me.
There is no other better management in the whole world than this.
And another note,
we had the neighborhood meeting
about this place.
And so panela one
lambu the bigger Illa who
only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows his soldiers.
Again, yeah. Hopefully this is within the subject that I want to address. And I will make it short in sha Allah made me later. Vina catch your work insha Allah.
We entered into mission VA who Elementary School. This is a neighborhood meeting regarding this community center. They thrown a fuss about the swimming pool being filled in they are saying that we're going to have a Masjid. And we don't blame them because they come walking around the community. And they asked some of the brothers is that a Masjid or a community center? They tell them it's a Masjid. Your Muslim told us this. But look at this. We got the police Dave.
All the Departments of the city, the permits, the zoning, the landscaping,
and some other authority, their attorney general or something. And just myself and my brother is half and we talk a lot with us. And we're walking out there and the place is filled with neighbors.
Man What's going on? This is a real setup. You know, it's so we set and everybody is reporting one why the zoning This place is zoned as recreational Center.
This is the primary zoning and the secondary they could worship. And before they purchase that place, they came to us and we given them in writing. That's what we requested that we could pray. Thank you that permits these guys zero violations. We've been giving them a hard time overall do facilities about to be done two years now. They didn't complain.
The landscaping these ended up we have some trees and we're gonna fix it. So panela until this woman came out.
And I could not articulate this the way that she did.
Even though I've been studying Islam for years. May Allah guide Malala mean
look what she said to those people,
There is a cultural divide between us and the Muslims. We were growing up or brought up to believe that there is a separation between church and life. Now Justine's it originally was the state
politics but no it became live. Basically if you want to worship Allah, you have to go into the building and pray.
That said that's what the religion for us is. Muslims are not like this.
The umbrella for Muslims is their Deen their Islam. wherever they go, they have to practice their Deen. Now if they come for recreational you still they still have to exercise Islam.
Therefore they need a place to pray.
And that is why they have that place to pray. And we cannot tell them no.
Look, we didn't even say a word will lie. We didn't say a word will lie at the India. There was one person, one person he kept coming after us just to sweet talk us after he showed himself and showed his hate and resentment
And bigotry towards towards Muslims. Again brothers and sisters in Islam. This is how Allah subhana wa Taala manages your affairs manages your affairs, if you're truthful, if you're faithful, if you're doing it for the sake of Allah, brothers and sisters in Islam
in our circle of relations
we strive so hard just to make people happy with us.
You try to please people so much so that they become impressed by you. So Oh man, this guy is really this is the guy.
And sometimes we actually end up showing off
in front of them in order to gain their acceptance in order to maintain their bleisure with us. Sometimes actually, we'll meet this obey Allah subhana wa tada in order to make them happy.
While we're ignoring Sophia, well,
why are we ignoring Sophia
sent a letter to Ayesha while he was mean. Yeah.
Oh, my mother gave me an
answer and if it can be short,
give me an advise me.
I shall have a loved one who wrote to him.
As for what to follow, for any semirara tourists Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aku I read the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
love Allah Enos.
If you showed, with an S, if you see seek suit, if you strive to earn the pleasure of the people at the expense of the displeasure of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala when Nick those people angry at you.
And I always give that scenario
you're working in a place and there is a lot of slum of hopes around you. Specially your boss.
He knows, you know, you know that he's really anti Islam and to Muslims. And now you're supposed to pray five times, especially in these winter, winter days, sure days, when us normally hits while you're working. Now you know if you're gonna pray in front of your boss.
So now you're gonna leave the salon to make him happy.
That's an example.
You know what the Hadith tells you this man will fire you for another reason.
There will be another reason that this man will fire you for it. Look at the end of this woman as often as the law and if you do the right thing, if you stand for what is right, if you stand for the family,
but this will make you go head to head with the people. The anger of the people who will be upon you. Kapha
Kapha Allah will protect you from the people
love your loved one.
One of the three who did not join the battle of taboo.
We know that there are three companions, they did not join the book.
And we know jihad.
fighting in the cause of Allah was mandatory like the Salah, like there's a cat like the Hajj during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So high geology, like Haryana Sala
Haryana Sala equals hireology. You cannot abandon unless you have an excuse. Ladies Allah Allah, Allah. Allah Allah.
Allah Allah Allah Allah heard, you must be limping, you must be sick, you must be blind, or you don't have the means to go
Hence Zoo execuse.
And he knew it.
So he learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is coming back to Moodle. He said how in the world I'm going to come out of that situation. I have no other result but to do like the hypocrites come up with a lie,
lie to the Messenger of Allah. When harleysville Bukhari when he stood in front of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, listen what he said,
Allah By Allah, O Messenger of Allah.
Allah am the best one to speak. Cat, by the way, used to be a point, Chad, in January, and you know, people who say they are very eloquent, they speak while I am the best to make up a lie. He's telling him I'm not sure of that. I'm not sure of this. But I know
if I tell you something right now, which is a lie, and I will disrupt that relationship with Allah, because I'm lying to you, you're human, you're gonna believe me, you're gonna be pleased with me. But I ignored that later on Allah subhanho wa Taala will turn your heart again it's me.
look at the understanding brothers and sisters in Islam. You need to realize that the limb with which we love and Islam, which is the heart is in the hands of Allah subhana wa tada call us.
the hearts of the children of Adam, are in between two fingers of Allah and we say fingers and Allah knows.
We affirm the attribute, but we don't
resemblance to that created being Allah has fingers in a way that suits His Majesty. Should I try to find out how his fingers look like no, I'm not commanded to do this. And if I turn plays my head with my head, so I ended up making up a picture of my finger. Say so Pinilla is above that. This is how we deal with the names and the attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala.
Rahim Allah has a statement out of this world, what did he say? He's addressing the person who shows up for the table in order to impress them.
So in my solo, I'm showing off I'm perfecting my Salah to impress you. You know what he said,
be a demon athlete. The whole of the one to whom you're showing off is in the hand of the one you're disobeying. If you want him to love you be sincere in your Salah.
Look at the rest of the statement of garbled nomadic brothers and sisters in Islam.
But I know messenger of Allah.
That's there as well a kidney.
That if I tell you the truth,
I made a mistake. I had no excuse.
To Allah. Yes, he
tells you to Allah. Yeah, Viva La Cava. That turns you against me.
But I know because of me maintaining that relationship with a law
focusing on that relationship with a law that I told you the truth, Allah will turn your hearts towards me later on.
This is brothers and sisters in Islam, that dilemma that a lot of Muslims are not paying attention to. When it comes to relationships, whether it be an active fi that relationship with a law, one law, ie a law will take care of your life. A law will take care of your kids. A law will take care of your children. Imagine, imagine our brother, our brother two days before his death,
asking me and I can tell that he wasn't the medication is getting to him and beginning to abandon the Salah. The connection with Allah
What should they do?
Can you advise me I told him to move and pray when you you're not in that state. Maybe you can combine the Salah, but don't leave the Salah. You don't have to face the Qibla because he cannot leave. You know, just pray with your eyes you will have so I told him Salah Sahaba he was so happy.
He was so happy.
Allah manages his life for him. Brothers and sisters in Islam.
One of the spoilers of relationships.
If I love you, and you love me for the sake of Allah,
if we separate one of us committed a sin,
call us Allah azza
wa jal Buddha would call us alojado. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, matter.
For you For over
a decade or
two individuals love one another for the sake of Allah, and they begin having conflict, rest assured that one of them committed a sin. That is why if you hang around someone that you want to you love and you love dearly, you love his brotherhood. You love his sister, you love you love, make sure that he doesn't sin because the sin will get to that relationship. Make sure that hey, did you make your Salah today? What are you doing? Oh, come on, you can do it. Because I want to maintain I love my brother. I don't want to lose Friday brothers and sisters in Islam. Right? They're
getting to the point.
How can I rectify my relationship with Allah subhana wa, how I can How can I correct it? How can I jump started, it's never late, never late
You know, it's there was no other person. And he
so loved that we hear about his relationships and the amount of love that he received. Then Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
And let's take the example of useful
use of every one came across him. loved him.
Every day by the way that people who love them, they ended up harming him.
Look at the people who loved it. They ended up shooting Aziz, he loved him. He jailed him the wife she accused him of allegedly of something that he did not do.
that somebody someone came to him and he said to him in your book. I love you said please thank you stay away. Thank you. It's okay stay away.
Look, how how did Allah subhana wa Taala turn all these holes to love him? Because of his
the scholars they are what they came up with over 15 excuses to give use of it would he have fallen into that trap of the women? He did not harsh Allah para una escuela de la la la. But look, they said he's a young man. And the sexual drive at the youth is high. Above all, he's a stranger. Very you know when people want to send normally they book a flight to Disney to Disney to Hawaii. But normally when in their community would not do it. They would shy away. But when he's a stranger, yeah. People who are strangers they do weird things. Look at this. Normally the woman is the one who's asked, know the woman is asking him and she is the mistress.
Not only this,
you know what that means is the verb is halaqa. Without that,
that means you know that you chain it. You lock it. You got five six locks, lock.
plural of Bad, bad is a door no multiple doors, the living
room, bride with a mouth
and not laughing is the idea
that this woman used
have options at the time these idols, she had her idol sitting in the bedroom. So when she would take it off her clothes in order to invite him in, so she covered the head of her idol. And slightly yet we do not believe it would not be light for us. ASCO, what are you doing? So she said, I don't want my god to see me doing this.
She's not a Muslim. He said, What about my god?
What about Lola?
I look at this call, I
can do this.
And you know, he did something that none of us do. You know, you don't in that situation. You don't say no, I can do this. I'm strong enough. Lola, will toss refine ni k the Horner aos boo la him. He knows that the only one who can save him from the situation is Allah Subhana Allah that's why he seeks refuge with a law. Look, compare him with the son of
the son of the one who drowned, no had four sons, one of them drowned
when the ship was sailing, where he attacked God him FEMA was intelligible the ship is sailing in waves as huge as the mountains when
he saw his son, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada Come, come with us. What did he say? He didn't say I was gonna protect me. He didn't say that is a color sir. We illegible in your Simoni.
Look at the difference. I will find refuge in a mountain.
You find refuge with Allah.
Then holla min Holika worku wati wa Tada.
Email when you come out of your means and unable.
That is step number one.
If you want to rectify your relationship, brothers and sisters in Islam, a lot of Muslims unfortunately now they assume that they can trick a lot. They can do all type of things and lovers,
and lovers, and I want to give you Benny is slow. He did all type of sinners.
All type of sins. Imagine killing messengers and prophets. What about the
killing prophets? Waka ambia
Allah subhanaw taala did not punish them.
Until in a way and until
they committed that sin.
He actually transformed them into Abes chimpanzees. What's in
what's Allahu mannitol Correa t Letty kana, Tao
AVR do enough except
they said the
village a town fisherman, their job is fishing. They said they are up. Give us a day on which we don't do any worldly things except worshiping Allah giving them a Sabbath. Saturday Sabbath. Shoot sub minute.
Here's the test. Throughout the week they go fishing Zoo fish, not even
laqad Carina Semak they used to say we miss eating fish. Imagine fishermen
five on Saturday.
The fish would come to them what would the fin

so uncertain day defin you know if you've been official man, when you see the fin, you know that the top part of the fish you go crazy.
Got a fish, you go crazy. But this happens on Saturday. So what they decided to do.
Okay, let's put nets on Friday. The fish is going to enter these nets on Saturday and pick it up on Sunday.
Is that the type of relationship
We have with Allah Allah can
one of them wants a car
and he doesn't want to pay usury the other one goes and he buys it on credit
and he pays interest usually. And he sells it cash to the other brothers.
What do you think about it like this
trickly frickin Allah taking a loss of the first area brothers insists
and tell our amela who bitten feed?
riddle? The riddle
number two, we said four steps here. Step number two, that anything that you're told in the Quran and the Sunnah believe it.
Discussing and arguing.
Things that are authentic in the religion contradicts you La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
because when you said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah you believed in the Name of Allah, the all knowing
the all wise.
That is why when something comes to you, and you question
of contradicting this
worker, so they've got a viola Juan,
they came to him.
Your friend claims that last night he went to Jerusalem, and he came back
abubaker asked about the authenticity because that's not in the Quran, the authenticity. Did he say that?
Yes, then he is true. I believe him.
lateral, Muslim in anti muslim, yada, yada,
yada. He rejects the command, using his intellect saying you know that she did that and that [???].
You have to believe in what you're told in the Quran and the Sunnah. And I always give the example of
that famous Hadith, the fly.
If a fly dips, its swing in your drink. And you want to drink that drink. You don't have to drink it. You can spell it and move on with your life. But let's say that you're in the desert and the only drink available foods that eat less food. The prophets Allah Allah de Bukhari, Rama studies, Abu hurayrah, top of the line of authenticity, did the other one and drink
don't kill that stuff to Muslims, to non Muslims or Muslims or drinking flies and
this is from Allah and His messenger.
from Allah and His Messenger, you see, one of the people learned
non Muslim, he took this to the lab, he did some lab work, he found out that there is a disease in one of the wings and the remedy is in the other wing. That's, that's how we look at it for you believe in Rasul Allah, Allah subhanaw taala on one day, he was walking with his companions. And he said to them,
a man was walking
with his cow.
So he decided to ride on his cow.
The cow looked at him
and she said, Man, you had the holy.
I wasn't created to do this. And none of y'all have I was created to help you blow help you with the agriculture.
The Companions looked at the professor.
They looked at him and said, your rasulillah messenger of Allah.
account speaks, he said, All men will be vaniqa Abu Bakr in Roma, we believe this? No doubt.
Brothers and sisters in Islam, no doubt about your deen that your servatius in Islam, that Allah is in control, no doubt of this. executing the commands that is number three, then feed will
Muslims right now. reject the commands.
I'm not gonna do this. I'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna do that. Why did Abraham Ali said
gain that status
because he was tested with the commands. Top of the line, you take your own son to slay him with your with your own hand. And he was willing to do it. He took his smile and he's about to do it. You have to execute the command brothers and sisters in Islam. Listen, no one, no one will be able to perfectly implement every single command. No one, no one at all.
We can't, I can't you can. Nobody can. But in principle, you have no reservation.
You can say, You know what? I'm going to do this one and this one and this one. But this one? No, you can do that. You cannot do this. Last week, I was in New Jersey. And I was giving a lecture in Stockton University of Stockton, one of the struction names.
And I ended up you know this while a lot even will get tested with it. So I ended up with the sister sitting next to me, I'm gonna call her sister inshallah I think she did this out of not knowing. And, you know, this was a question about the hijab. So one of the person who was moderating, he asked her, can you give words of encouragement to the people about to the sister sitting here, too, with the hijab? So the sister started saying, will you go ahead and center yourself? And if you feel that you're strong enough do it but you could delay it but but don't rush into it? Yes.
the I was sitting out theater kambala lie a lot broad Sakina with me. I couldn't otherwise do god this is the dean they want to promote. Now, center or center of internal strength or external strength to external citizen in America and coal and many in either
Lilia Kumar pulu. Sami and our our partner
and brothers and sisters in Islam. This is what separates. I'll give you an example. You have two individuals two of them do not pray
two of them. I'm gonna ask this one. Salaam Alaikum brother How come you don't pray?
I don't have time. And you know five players now is was a little bit busy. Muslims at the time of the Prophet they used to live in the desert. They didn't have Google and Yahoo and and I think two is enough for you. Maybe I'll try one or two.
If this brother knows what he's doing cafe hokku. cafe. This is why the scholars differed on the ruling regarding a personal PR for if he knows listen if he knows if he is not Jade, this system, I assure you She doesn't know what she's doing.
She doesn't know. But look at the other example here. Look at the other example. Santa Monica brotherhood come you don't pray
I'm so weak. Can you please meet often Muslim, Muslim, and both of them are Caracas Allah
Maha Iblees and Adam both of them send
Satan did not bow Adam ate from the tree. What was the difference this that you reject, that you deny that had the lamb test the hell that you legalize the harm, and the other one knows that he's wrong. And this is what I'm talking about. There are a lot of commands I know that you're not able to fulfill but feel guilty about it. feel guilty about it. This is where loss of Hannah with Allah legislated, is the foreign Toba so that you can come back to Allah and rectify that relationship.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa sallahu wa shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa sallahu la sharika yaku
Mohammedan Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the steps to rectify your relationship with Allah. So Allah who will better your lives, Allah will better your relationships. Number one XM, Allah, Allah Allah. Whatever you do, Allah sees you develop that number to believe in what you're told in the Quran. The sound was certainty with me
doubt, number three, the execution of the command number for patients regarding the
patience Be patient. Be patient.
By the way, you don't have to accept it. The scholars differentiated between two servitudes patience and acceptance. Initially you're going to have to accept, you go through the pain, we're going through the pain of Donald Trump now, be patient, be patient, and later on inshallah, with that patience, we're going to accept the fact that he is our president, and we're gonna deal with it. And you know, what, what law he was seeing, we're seeing the signs from Allah, the sign from Allah, that Muslims are,
like dealing with this subject as if Donald Trump became the president without a lot his will, beyond the lightest will. He's there for a progress and there is a good progress that will come out of it while law by a law. I see this Heidi's crystal clear.
seller says in the law,
alone will give victory to a wicked man. Oh, see, see. Washington Post last week, an article supported with evidence with numbers. Look what the author said. The view of Americans on Islam and Muslims has shifted. He used that word miraculously.
in another context, drastically
since Donald Trump started his presidential campaign,
probably what we got last night
because of this
now it's time while law he the best time to make Tao in America right now. Don't shy away from your deen rectify your relationship with Allah and Allah will help you Allah will help us as an oma. Allah will help us and what would you like to hear the state's women? Madeleine Albright saying if they do a Muslim registry I'm gonna register as a Muslim.
Listen, it's all these are signs. These are signs to us brothers and sisters in Islam. Stay positive, trust Allah subhanho wa Taala but rectify that relationship with Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala will show you his wonders Allah subhanho wa Taala truly is one there's

you know, a country that I love while law is a country that I love dearly and I love the brothers from the while I would with no offense
I want to tell you something
Islam at one stage in America kind of tipped towards the I would say the let go brand of the religion
let me put it this way let me be blunt with you they extreme Sophie's Sufism is supported by all political systems, because that's the brand of Islam they want.
So, you know, here we are, we're traveling and we're doing all type of things and, and somehow Subhanallah we I felt at one stage that man, it's until that wave of refugees came from Somalia. We love these brothers. We're law, one law here. We love them. They love the Quran and Sunnah. And we love them for that and the balance
happened in a lot of states but I travel and I know what I'm talking about Minnesota ended up with people who love the Quran and Sunnah. They got a new president, may Allah subhana wa Taala bring peace into this country at the end of this manual. That's Allah Allah. Allah Allah. Allah, Allah. Allah holy hell
